Syria Produces
Chemical Weapons

Berlin (JTA) — Syria is pro-
ducing chemical weapons
and developing an advanced
version of the Scud missile,
according to a German arms
control expert.
Wilhelm Dietl, a specialist
in weapons sales, said Syria,
aided by China and North
Korea, is producing over 100
tons annually in chemical
weapons and is working on
an advanced Scud.
The report was given at an
arms-control conference held
at the Jewish community
center here.
At the same time, Ger-
many ' s commitment to
Israel remains strong, an of-
ficial of the German Min-
istry of Economics said.
Joachim Jahnke said Bonn
had declined a request from
Iran to complete construc-
tion of a nuclear reactor near
the town of Bashir. It had
also turned down requests
from Teheran for pesticides
that could be used for
military purposes, he said.

A representative of the
Anti-Defamation League in
Germany, addressing the
'c three-day conference, called
on stricter government con-
trol over the export of

weapOns

of mass destruc-
tion.
Participants called on
Germany to tighten control
over export of "dual-use"
technology to deter exploita-
tion of civilian equipment
for military purposes.
Dual-use technology is
that which can be used for
peaceable industrial use as
well as for military pur-
poses. It can, therefore, be
classified for a common in-
dustrial use and pass
customs restrictions.
The participants to the
conference urged Bonn to
take a more active role in
strengthening an interna-
tional accord aimed at the
destruction of chemical
weapons. Seventy nations
are currently signatory to
the agreement.
Speakers voiced concern
that as Europe prepares to
drop customs barriers in
January, difficulties would
increase in monitoring Ger-
man arms exports.
An optimistic forecast
came from Thomas Stock of
the Swedish International
Peace Research Center, who
said Iraq's chemical weapon
stockpile would be destroyed
before the summer of 1993.

Mr. Verbeke said he would
appeal the sentence to cease
distibution of material.
Thousands of copies of his
pamphlets, titled "American
Expert Destroys the Gas-
Chamber Legend" and "The
Six Million Holocaust," have
been mailed to Dutch
citizens.
The pamphlets claim that
the Jews have perpetrated
the Holocaust as a hoax in
order to reap continual fi-
nancial benefits. They also
claim the Anne Frank diary
is a falsification.

Ronnie Naftaniel, the di-
rector of the Center for In-
formation, said Belgium
should take the next step to
prevent the spread of mate-
rial denying the Holocaust
took place.

Publisher Ordered
To Stop Denials

The Hague, Netherlands
(JTA) — A Dutch court has
ordered a Belgian publisher
to stop disseminating pam-
phlets in the Netherlands
alleging the Holocaust never
took place.
The court said the fact of
the Nazi slaughter of the
Jews required no further
proof and ordered Siegfried
Verbeke to cease
distributing the hate litera-
ture or pay a $17,000 fine for
each pamphlet sent out.
Mr. Verbeke challenged
his opponents to prove that 6
million Jews died in the
Holocaust after being sued
by four human rights
groups: B'nai B'rith, the
Center for Information and
Documentation on Israel,
the Anne Frank Foundation
and the National Bureau on
Combatting Racism.
It is believed to be the first
