man of the World Zionist
Organization Executive.
Kent Schiner, president of

strate solidarity and to re-
view Israel's preparations to
absorb large waves of immi-

No Monkey
In Israel

Acre (JPFS) — Nature Re-
serves Authority wardens
have confiscated a monkey
from a 30-year-old resident
of this port city who had
advertised that the animal
was for sale.
The wardens, posing as
potential customers, had an-
swered the man's ad in a na-
tional newspaper, in which
he offered to sell the monkey
for $4,500.
Authority spokesman Ofer
Greenstein said the import
and sale of monkeys was for-
bidden by international law
(the Washington Covenant),
for fear that monkeys im-
ported from Africa could be
infected with AIDS.
He said there were reports
of sailors trying to smuggle
monkeys into the country
and offering to sell them for
as much as $15,000.
Early this week, the Acre
Magistrates' Court au-
thorized the Authority to
confiscate the animal.
