Israel Bonds Leaders
Meet In Israel

Israel's Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir told a delega-
tion of more than 200 Israel
Bonds leaders that invest-
ment in Israel is necessary for
the continued resettlement of
the new immigrants. "Bonds
have a very significant role to
play in the historic process of
strengthening our poeple and
developing our land," he said.
Jonathan Brateman of
Detroit, a member of the
North American New Leader-
ship Cabinet of State of Israel
Bonds, was among the Israel
Bond New Leadership dele-
gates who toured Israel to ex-
perience the absorption pro-
cess at first hand. Many
members of the delegation ar-
rived directly from the Soviet
Union where they took part
in a five-day fact-finding mis-
sion into the situation of
Soviet Jews.
The Bond delegates were
received by Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, Finance
Minister Yitzhak Moda'i,
Housing and Construction
Minister Ariel Sharon, and
Police Minister Roni Milo.
Israel's top leaders emphasiz-
ed the-role of Israel Bonds in
the country's economic devel-
opment.
At a housing site in the
development town of Kiryat
Gat, Minister Sharon noted
an increase of almost 10 per-
cent in Israel's population
as a result of recent im-
migration.

Immigrant absorption was
also the focus of Finance
Minister Moda'i who applaud-
ed Israel Bonds for achieving
a landmark of $500 million in
sales in the first half of 1991,
and for setting a goal of $1
billion for the year.
The delegation purchased a
record $1 million in Israel
Bonds.
A visit to Beersheba gave
delegates another on-the-spot
view of the absorption proces.
Beersheba Mayor Yitzhak
Rager told the Bond leaders
the influx of immigrants
represented a "golden oppor-
tunity?' He said Israel Bonds
was "a loan in the family" to
absorb these immigrants.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1991

-

Athens (JTA) — The Greek
Supreme court postponed for
the second time an extradi-
tion hearing for Palestinian
terrorist Abdulrahim Khal-
ed, who is wanted in Italy for
planning the hijacking of the
Italian cruise ship Achille
Lauro on Oct. 7, 1985.
Mr. Khaled, arrested in
Greece in March on
unrelated charges, was to go
on trial here this week for
drug and arms smuggling.
An appeals court had or-
dered his extradition to Ita-
ly, where he was convicted
in absentia in the Achille
Lauro case. But the Greek
Supreme Court has now
twice delayed hearing his
appeal.
Mr. Khaled, 56, is de-
scribed as the right-hand
man of Palestinian terrorist

Mohammed (Abul) Abbas,
said to have actually
masterminded the hijacking,
which occurred in Egyptian
waters.
Mr. Khaled, who was
aboard the Achille Lauro,
disembarked at Alexandria
before gunmen seized the
vessel, which was on a
Mediterranean cruise from
Genoa with a large number
of American tourists aboard.

The passengers and crew
were held hostage until Oct.
10. In that period, Leon Kl-
inghoffer, an American Jew
confined to a wheelchair by a
stroke, was shot to death by
one of the hijackers and
thrown overboard.
Mr. Khaled's defense
against extradition is
mistaken identity.
