POLLARD/page 8

finally taken a stand on this
issue. While we sat in
Jerusalem, celebrating the
freedom of the Jewish people
and its return to the Land of
Israel, Mr. Pollard still sat in
prison serving an unjust and
disproportionate sentence for
actions taken on behalf of the
State of Israel.
It has not been an easy
fight to get major Jewish
groups to realize the impor-
tance of the Pollard case. I am
very disappointed that my
colleagues at this Congress
from Hadassah were unwill-
ing to join with us to make a
united stand. Their decision
to oppose the resolution was
a shame.
At the same time, I was
very gratified that delegates
from ARZA (American
Reform Movement Zionists)
and Mercaz (Conservative
Movement Zionists) and the
Israeli Labor Party actively
supported our resolution
despite our grave differences
on other issues.
I hope that this action by
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion and its Congress will con-
tinue the momentum of the
movement to gain Mr.
Pollard's release so that he
may soon come to Israel and
be part of the Jewish State
whose security and existence
he sought to preserve .. .

Thank You For
Singles Support

Thank you on behalf of Tem-
ple Kol Ami for helping to
make the community-wide
Rosh Hashanah Singles Ser-
vice such a success. Over 250
Jewish singles joined
together for the spiritual ser-
vice and festive Oneg.
I appreciate the editorial
support and coverage provid-
ed by The Jewish News. I
have read with interest
readers' comments on the
singles service and how best
to serve Jewish singles. I look
forward to additional letters
as the debate over the needs
of singles continues.

Dworkin Letter
On Pollard Hit

As Mr. Dworkin correctly
stated (Oct. 30), he is certain-
ly not an expert in the Pollard
case. However, he is correct in
stating that this case is not
just a Jewish issue. The
Pollard case is a human
rights issue.
Jonathan Pollard was
denied due process under the

law. If Mr. Dworkin had read
the reams of material per-
taining to this case, then
perhaps his self-righteous-
ness would diminish.
Jonathan Pollard's tragedy
is rooted in his dedication to
Zionism, where one believes
that Jewish people should
have a national homeland,
Israel, and that people of
Jewish descent (Diaspora
Jews) have a moral obligation
to insure the security of that
homeland. Pollard never gave
Israel any information regar-
ding U.S. defenses. This has
been borne out exhaustively
through polygraph examina-
We pray that Mr. Dworkin
is never faced with the hor-
rendous decision that Pollard
felt he was faced with, and
then chose to act. Thank God
he acted.

Freedom for Jonathan Pollard

Anti-Terror Law
Suffers Blow

Jerusalem (JTA) — In a blow
to Israel's law barring con-
tacts with officials of ter-
rorist organizations, a
Knesset committee has
voted down a proposal to lift
the parliamentary immuni-
ty of four Knesset members
who met recently with offi-
cials of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization.
By a vote of 8-3, the House
Committee voted to keep in-
tact the immunity enjoyed
by three Arab Knesset
members and a represent-
ative of the left-wing Meretz
bloc, one of the parties that
makes up Israel's coalition
Members of the opposition
Likud bloc charged the
committee had trampled on
a state law by using a
"technical majority" in
favor of Abd el-Wahab
Darawshe and Taleb al-
Sanaa of the Arab Dem-
ocratic Party, Hashem
Mahmid of the Hadash
Communists and Naomi
Chazan of Meretz.
Committee Chairman
Haggai Merom of Labor con-
ceded that the vote in effect
nullified the 1986 law for-
bidding contact with ter-
rorist organizations.
But he said he hoped it
would accelerate the an-
nounced government inten-
tion of amending the law to
decriminalize such contacts.
