be in the traditional Jewish
shalom.
We in Jewry as well as all

mankind keep drawing in-
spiration from these two
peace-related stanzas from
Scriptures:
And they shall beat their
swords into plowshares
And their spears into
0. pruning hooks:
Nation shall not take up
0-, Sword against nation;
They shall never know
war.
The wolf shall dwell with
the lamb,
The leopard lie down with
the kid;
The calf, the beast of prey,
and the fatling together,

With a little boy to herd
them.
Let it never be forgotten
that the Israel Declaration
of Independence of May 14,
1948, included the following
pledged commitment to ami-
ty with all mankind:

Such is the message of
peace. It is undeniably Jew-
ish. It is inerasably Israeli.
Let it continue as mankind's
major aspiration. ❑

N EWS

New York (JTA) — The
Anti-Defamation League is
calling on the South Korean
government to develop full
diplomatic and economic ties
with Israel, now that the
U.N. Security Council has
recommended that South
Korea be accorded member-
ship to the United Nations.
In response to the Security
Council resolution, adopted
. Aug. 8, ADL's national
chairman, Melvin Salberg,
and its national director,
Abraham Foxman, issued a
joint statement, which read:
"The decision to admit
South Korea is one more
sign of the new world that is
emerging. In order for South
Korea to fully participate in
the spirit of that new world,
it should end its policy of
isolating Israel."
Diplomatic relations do ex-
ist between the two coun-
tries, although they are ad-
mittedly strained. While
South Korea has formally
recognized Israel, it has
never established an em-
bassy there. It is represented
by a non-resident ambas-
sador based in Rome.
In 1978, Israel closed its
embassy in Seoul because of
budgetary constraints.
Despite attempts on the part
of the Israelis, the South
Korean government has
refused to allow Israel to
reopen the embassy, which
was established in 1964. In-
stead, Israel's ambassador in
Tokyo maintains dual ac-
creditation.
Kenneth Jacobson, direc-
tor of international relations
for the ADL, said South
Korean officials had told
visiting Israeli and Ameri-
can officials that they would

AUGUST 22, 23 & 24th

consider reopening the em-
bassy after the 1988 Olym-
pic Games in Seoul.
When that date passed
with no move to reopen the
embassy, South Korea an-
nounced a new target date,
set to coincide with South
Korea's membership in the
United Nations. Now, Mr.
Jacobson said, that time has
come.
Shinil Park, minister of in-
formation at the South
Korean Embassy in Wash-
ington, said his government
had no official comment on
relations between the two
countries at this time. He
noted, however: "We are
aware of the importance of
the issue."
Much of the strain in rela-
tions can be traced to South
Korea's pro-Arab stance, in-
cluding its support of the
Arab boycott of Israel and its
recognition of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
There has been a slight
improvement in trade rela-
tions, as evidenced by last
year's $113 million in
bilateral trade - up $10 mill-
ion from 1989 figures.
But references to trade
with Israel are not made in
official statements and
publications. And many
major South Korean
corporations either do not
trade with Israel, or do not
do so openly.
Some U.S. congressional
members have relayed their
concerns about trade rela-
tions between Israel and
South Korea to President
George Bush and Secretary
of State James Baker, urg-
ing them to bring the matter
up with South Korean offi-
cials.
