Might I suggest to those
chronic whiners that instead
of constantly lambasting the
Jewish community, they try
raising interest in their
issues in a positive way. If
you're really certain the
"Jewish community is doing
nothing about ***" try
designing a program and br-

ing it to your temple or syn-
agogue. Ask to be a guest
speaker, host a lecture, ap-
proach a Jewish organiza-
tion and seek support.
But keep your lectures to
yourself. If not enough is be-
ing done, remember that old
adage about for whom the
bell tolls.
Oh, and by the way, the

Rome (JTA) — There are
only about 1,000 or so hard-
core neo-Nazi skinheads in
Italy, according to official
estimates.
But Interior Minister
Nicola Mancino is concerned
about signs that the violent
shaven-headed youths have
increasing contact with
right-wing extremists
abroad.
In a report to an Italian
Senate commission, Mr.
Mancino warned last week
that members of the Rome-
based Political Movement of
the West, the biggest
skinhead group here, have
had "increasingly intensive
contacts" with right-wing
extremists who fled to Lon-
don to escape Italian law.
Also alarming, he said, is
the apparent "return to ac-
tivism" of several extremists
linked to right-wing ter-
rorist attacks that took place
in the 1970s and 1980s.
"The phenomenon of anti-
Semitism should not be
minimized," he said. "To say
that it is under control
doesn't mean that right-
wing extremism has been
canceled out completely,
either in terms of violence or
anti-Semitism."
Mr. Mancino said that 44
acts of anti-Semitism had
been registered so far this
year.
He said he worried that
any appearance that the au-
thorities are "lukewarm" in
reacting to anti-Semitism
and skinhead activities
might be seen as "tacit ap-
proval" and lead to "more
significant actions against
the Jewish community."
Mr. Mancino also said
there has been a sharp rise
in acts of violence against
Third World immigrants in
Italy in the first half of this
year.
This, he said, could in-

dicate that "the xenophobic-)
political message of militant
groups of the radical righ?,
are regularly received and
acted upon by the
skinheads." _
At the same time, Justice
Minister Claudio Martelli
visited the hospital bedside
of Zuhir Sayad, a Palestiri-
ian boy who was severely
beaten by classmates in a
Rome school a few days ago.
"A young Palestinian was
beaten up because he want-
ed to defend the Jews. It's a
little incident that
nonetheless is very instruc-
tive," Mr. Martelli tole
reporters as he left the
hospital.

Eban Narrates
Documentary

New York (JTA) — Thirty-
nine years ago, Israeli
statesman Abba Eban wat-
ched as the Israeli flag was
first raised at the United
Nations.
At that moment, he felt
that "the status of the Jew-
ish people in history had ir-
reversibly changed," he re-
cently recalled.
The former Israeli ambas-
sador to the United States
will share those and other'
memories in "Israel, a
Nation is Born, with Abba
Eban, a Personal Witness,"
a five-part television doc-
umentary on the history of

the Jewish state.

The series, which depicts--
the birth and evolution of
the state of Israel, will
premiere on WNET, the
public television station in
New York, on Dec. 6. It will
be made available to public
television stations nation,
wide, according to William
Baker, president and chief
executive officer of WNET.
