Avi Weiss Gunning
For Buchanan

The Jewish community is
being too easy on GOP pres-
idential challenger Pat
Buchanan, says Rabbi Avi
Weiss, the outspoken New
York Jewish activist.
Rabbi Weiss plans to rec-
tify that situation as Mr.
Buchanan cranks up his
campaign for "Super Tues-
day."
"I intend to do everything
I can to follow this man
around the country," said
the fiery rabbi. "Even if one
agrees with every one of his
economic programs, if he's a
supporter of Nazis, as I
believe he is, this should
disqualify him from the sup-
port of every decent Ameri-
can."
Mr. Buchanan is "is far
more dangerous than
(David) Duke," said the
rabbi. "Their positions on
many issues are similar, but
he is sharper. He is a pro-
lific, tough — sometimes a
brilliant — writer. He has

Rabbi Avi Weiss:
Buchanan "is more dangerous."

the ability to twist a phrase.
He couches (his arguments),
and that makes him much
more dangerous."

Jewish Lawyer
Defends Haitians

When supporters of Hai-
tian refugees went to the
Supreme Court last week in
a last-ditch effort to prevent
the wholesale return of Hai-
tian refugees to their coun-
try, it was a Jewish attorney
who carried the message to
the justices — unsuccessful-
ly, as it turned out.
Ira J. Kurzban of Miami
has spent the past 14 years
working on a pro-bono basis
on behalf of Haitian refu-
gees. The attorney also rep-
resents deposed Haitian
president Jean-Bretrand
Aristide and is involved with
negotiations in Washington
that may return the former
leader to Haiti.
Mr. Kurzban said his
impassioned participation in
the Haitian cause comes
naturally:
"My father left Rumania
because of anti-Semitism at
the age of 12. That's part of
the reason I have been so in-
volved in the Haitian situa-
tion. Jews have a respon-
sibility to protect the prin-
cipals of non-discrimination
because ultimately, Jewish
people have suffered more
discrimination than any-
one."
The Jewish community, he
said, is not sufficiently
aware of the link between its
security and the treatment
of the Haitians.

"My impression is that
Jews have not been as aware
as they should be," he said.
"But that may be changing;
this time around, the Jewish
leadership have really
united and shown strong
support for the Haitians."

Egypt Charges
Ramla Family

Ramla, Israel (JTA) — An
obscure Israeli Arab family
living in this city southeast
of Tel Aviv has been pro-
jected into the limelight
suddenly with the disclosure
that two of its members have
been arrested in Egypt for
spying.
They are the first Israeli
citizens held by Egypt for
espionage since the two
countries signed their peace
treaty in 1979. The fact that
they are Arab Israelis has
only added to the extreme
sensitivity of the affair.
The bombshell burst when
the Israeli ambassador in
Cairo, Efraim Dubek, an-
nounced Feb. 5 on Israel
Radio that the Egyptian au-
thorities had confirmed an
earlier newspaper report
that two Israelis were being
detained on espionage
charges.
