Aristide Seeks Aid
To Restore Democracy

New York (JTA) — Exiled
Haitian President Jean-
Bertrand Aristide has ask-
ed Jewish organizational
leaders to help rally the
pressure needed to force out
of power the military junta
that overthrew him last fall.
"The more people who
know what's going on in our
country, the easier it will be
to change things," he told
representatives of the New
York Jewish Community
Relations Council's consti-
tuent agencies in an address
last week.
"Talk to friends and see
how, together, we can put
pressures on them," he said.
"Through peaceful
resistance, let's show how
the power of 'shalom' is
stronger than the power of
war.
"We are stronger than one
criminal and his thugs," he
added, referring to Gen.
Raoul Cedras, who forced
Aristide out of power on
Sept. 30.
He urged wider adoption of
the trade embargo against
Haiti imposed by the United
States and the Organization
of American States. Other
countries, including the 12
nations of the European
Community, have declined
to support the embargo.
"If we could stop the ships
going to Haiti with oil, the
coup would have been over
long ago," Mr. Aristide said.
"Once they make the em-
bargo a real one, it will be a
matter of days" until it ends.
Mr. Aristide, a Roman
Catholic priest known to
adhere to the political-
religious philosophy known
as "liberation theology,"
spoke to the representatives
of the Jewish organizations
in both English and Hebrew.
The ousted president
studied theology at the Pon-
tifical Biblical Institute in
Jerusalem for three years,
beginning in 1979, and is
able to express himself in
fluent Hebrew.
Though the exiled leader
said that his countrymen are
"fleeing political repres-
sion," he stopped short of
criticizing President Bush's
position that Haitians are
simply running from econ-
omic distress.
Nor did Mr. Aristide at-
tack the Bush policy of forc-
ibly returning Haitian refu-
gees back on the high seas
each day, rather than allow-
ing them to apply for polit-
ical asylum from the safety
of the U.S. naval base in
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Jewish groups have been
highly critical of the policy
shift, which was announced
May 24. But Mr. Aristide -
saw the matter differently.
Mr. Bush "wants to stop
refugees from fleeing Haiti,
and of course, I want that'
too," he said. "We say let's
stop the flow of refugees by'—\
promoting democracy in
Haiti today."
When asked about a report
that U.S. Navy commandos (,
had rescued a small group
his followers from Halt_
about two months ago, Mr.'
Aristide demurred.
"I heard about the Navy
Seals rumor, but I don't
know anything more than
what I heard," he said.
Haitian, Pentagon and
State Department official: r--)
have refused to comment 07
the report.
More than 2,000 peop
have been killed since th(
coup, according to Mr.
Aristide, "even children. It'F-;
not a war, it's a massacre,
he said. "The very few pe
ple who have weapons ar
money are killing mar.'
with nothing."
In Hebrew, he said to
Jewish leaders, "Alone
can't do it. But with yo.
always together, we have
excellent chance.
"I read in the Tanach
ble), 'Love your neighbor -
like yourself' Please speak
with all our friends so that
we can again be in a dem-
ocratic Haiti," he pleaded.

Austrian Leader
Ends Isolation

Vienna (JTA) — Austria's
president-elect, Thomas
Klestil, said his first order of
business after he is sworn
will be to end the diplomatic
isolation brought on his coun-
try when it elected Kurt l,1
Waldheim president in 1986
despite disclosure of his Nazi
past.
Mr. Klestil, a 59-year-ol—,:-/
career diplomat and former
ambassador to the United
States who was the can-
didate of the conservative
Austrian People's Party,
won a resounding victory in -)
the runoff election against
the Social Democratic can-
didate, Transport Minister
Rudolph Streicher.
Mr. Klestil said his im-
mediate plans call for
visiting the European Com-
munity countries and
Austria's close neighbors
—something Mr. Waldheim
was unable to do.
