munity to focus solely on the
Farrakhan remark.
For the past decade,
Clarence Thomas has been a
member of the editorial ad-
visory board of the Lincoln
Review, the quarterly publica-
tion of the Lincoln Institute.
The Lincoln Institute is a con-
servative black think tank
organized by Jay A. Parker, a
lobbyist for South Africa.
Furthermore, the Lincoln
Institute was a part of the
Coalition for Peace Through
Strength, an umbrella group
for a number of extreme anti-
Communist organizations in-
cluding the Captive Nations
Committee. The Captive Na-
tions Committee is a group of
eastern European emigre
anti-communists who have
too often been found to be
World War II fascist sym-
pathizers .. .
Jay A. Parker, the founder
of Lincoln Institute and the
editor of the Review has sere=
ed for many years as a
member of the Board of the
U.S. Branch of the World
Anti-Communist League
(WACL). WACL is an extreme
right-wing organization
which has had numerous
anti-Semitic and racist af-
filiates .. .
Jewish community groups
need not worry about expen-
ding political capital or rein-
forcing black anti-Semitism.
The Jewish community
should join the Congressional
Black Caucus and other civil
rights groups in opposing the
Thomas nomination.
Farrakhan is not the issue.
Clarence Thomas is not the
man to replace Thurgood
Marshall. It is unreasonable
to expect George Bush to ap-
point a liberal to the Court,
but we need not accept so-
meone as far to the right as
Thomas appears to be.

Kudos to Milton Rose for his
letter "Role for France in
Middle East?" in the Aug. 2
edition.
Last January, your paper
published an article, "Selling
Out Israel To Maintain
`Peace? " The last paragraph
states, "France has a long
history of betrayal, diplomatic
duplicity and moral cowardice
in its international relations.
This has extended not only to
its dealings with its own
Jewish population during
World War II and with Israel
afterward, but in dealing
with the United States."
Mr. Rose suggests we not

visit France. I suggest we do
not purchase anything made
or processed in France as
well.

Na'amat Story
Is Appreciated

I was truly delighted with
Elizabeth Applebaum's July
26 article on "Detroit Women
Adopt Hundreds of Children."
The article really portrayed
what Na'amat is all about. I
appreciate that Mrs. Ap-
plebaum presented our story
correctly.

Germany
Speeds Visas

Bonn (JTA) — While Ger-
many's Interior Ministry
has promised to speed up the
processing of visa applica-
tions from Soviet Jews seek-
ing admission to Germany,
no new commitments have
been made with respect to
numbers, ministry sources
said over the weekend.
A request to allow more
Jews to enter the country
was made by Jewish com-
munity officials at an
emergency meeting with
Interior Minister Wolfgang
Schaueble last week.
The meeting took place
shortly after the Aug. 19
military coup by Communist
hard-liners threatened a
return to authoritarian rule
in the Soviet Union. But the
urgency of the situation
diminished when the coup
collapsed two days later.
The German Jewish corn-
munity, nevertheless, is
anxious to see the Jewish
population grow. It numbers
about 40,000 at present, a
far cry from the 600,000
German Jews before World
War II, of whom 100,000 liv-
ed in Berlin.
Several German intellec-
tuals have campaigned for
free Jewish immigration.
They said it would benefit
not only the Jewish corn-
munity, but German society
as a whole.
Israeli officials here are
opposed. They insist that
Israel must be the destina-
tion of Jews who leave the
Soviet Union.
German policy now is to
admit Soviet Jews who have
relatives in Germany or who
can prove family origins in
Germany. They must apply
for visas at German con-
sulates in the Soviet Union.
