Hafez Assad of Syria talks with Egypt's Hosni Mubarak.

U.S. Presses Syria
On Travel Rules

Washington (JTA) — The
Clinton administration is
"consistently, persistently"
pressing the Syrian govern-
ment to allow more Jews to
leave the country, a senior
State Department official
told Congress last week.
"We will continue to raise
the issue until we're
satisfied that all Syrian
Jews who wish to travel can
do so," Edward Djerejian,
assistant secretary of state
for Near Eastern and South
Asian affairs, said during an
Oct. 21 appearance on
Capitol Hill.
Mr. Djerejian testified
before the House Foreign Af-
fair s subcommittee on
Europe and the Middle East.
He addressed the subject of
Syrian Jewry in response to
questions from Reps. Ben-

jamin Gilman, R-N.Y., and
Peter Deutsch, D-Fla.
The number of Jews leav-
ing Syria has fallen dra-
matically since last October,
raising doubts about
whether President Hafez
Assad is still committed to
his April 1992 announce-
ment that travel restrictions
against Jews had been lifted.

Since Mr. Assad's decision
granting freedom of travel to
Syrian Jews, "approximate-
ly 80 percent of the 3,600 to
4,000 members of the Syrian
Jewish community have
received exit permits,"
Djerejian said.
Between 1,100 and 1,200
Jews remain in Syria, he
said, most of whom are
presumably unable to
leave.

Amsterdam Police
Detain Israelis

Amsterdam (JTA) — Police
in Amsterdam have detain-
ed 19 Israelis living in
Holland in connection with
the laundering of millions of
dollars of drug-related
money.
Announcement of the ar-
rests was made here the
same day that Tel Aviv
police said that they had de-
tained two other Israel-
based members of the opera-
tion who had been investing
the illegal funds in real
estate there.
The Amsterdam police
identified the gang leaders
as brothers Menashe and
Ami Eini and their cousin
Zion Eini.
Zion Eini's sister Ilana
was also arrested.

SOLDIER

The Eini family, originally
from Rehovot, immigrated to
the Netherlands more than
12 years ago. They are said
to have employed 31 people,
including 19 Israelis, all of
whom have been detained.
The Eini brothers were
known to the police as the
"Israel Connection" in a
separate drug-selling opera-
tion uncovered a month ago.
According to the Amster-
dam police, the investigation
of the money-laundering
operation involved close co-
operation between the
Amsterdam and Tel Aviv
police forces for more than
half a year, with Israeli and
Dutch police working in
each other's countries.
