Mistrust of Israelis is most
pervasive in the guest
houses along the Annapurna
Circuit trek, a three-week
trek that is most popular
among Israelis.
Lale Baha, who has work-
ed as a trekking guide for
seven years, said there is
good reason why some guest
houses bear signs saying,
"No Israelis allowed."

Over the years, he said, he
has seen numerous "tricks"
that Israelis are famous for
while trekking, from leaving
without paying to stealing
bedsheets.
Nepal was the first coun-
try in the region to establish
ties with Israel. The two
countries have enjoyed

friendly diplomatic relations
since 1961.
The Israeli Embassy has
made an effort to educate
Israelis about Nepalese tra-
ditions and customs before
they arrive in Nepal.
A letter from the embassy
appears in the Hebrew edi-
tion of the most widely used
guidebook, The Lonely
Planet, warning Israelis to
be respectful of the
Nepalese, and the issue has
been covered in the Israeli
press.
Some Israelis have tried to
change their negative image
by staying longer and
teaching English, for exam-
ple, but these efforts remain
overshadowed by the
negative incidents.

Iliescu Thwarts
Anti-Semitism

Washington (JTA) — The
leader of Romania has
pledged to "put an end" to
the recent surge of anti-
Semitic activity in his coun-
try.
In letters sent recently to
the Anti-Defamation League
and Rep. Carolyn Maloney,
D-N.Y., President Ion Iliescu
gave his personal assurance
that he would thwart the ac-

Carolyn Maloney:
Welcomed the forthrightness.

tions of anti- Semitic forces
in Romania.
"I am as determined as
ever to use all my constitu-
tional powers to prevent
and, if the case, to put an end
to any action (designed to)
revive anti-Semitism in
Romania," Mr. Iliescu
wrote.
The letters were written in
reaction to concern here over
recent dedications of statues
and roads to a former
Romanian dictator who col-
laborated with the Nazis
during World War II.
The dictator, Ion An-
tonescu, was executed as a
war criminal in 1946. Dur-
ing Antonescu's rule from

1940 to 1944, more than
250,000 Jews died in ter-
ritories controlled by
Romania.
"I welcome President Il-
iescu's letter and his clear
and forthright statements
repudiating the ceremony
honoring Gen. Antonescu,"
Ms. Maloney said in a
statement Jan. 19.
"I also commend him for
his unambiguous promise to
fight anti-Semitism in his
country," she said.
Abraham Foxman, na-
tional director of the ADL,
praised Mr. Iliescu's inten-
tions.
But "the government must
act to translate the commit-
ment into deeds," Mr. Fox-
man said in a statement.
Jewish groups strongly
denounced the October
dedication of a statue to An-
tonescu near Bucharest, a
ceremony financed by mem-
bers of the local Romanian
police and attended by a
member of the Romanian
Cabinet.
Secretary of State Warren
Christopher and B'nai B'rith
leaders met separately with
Romanian officials in
December, urging the
government of Romania to
take a more active role in
combating extreme nation-
alism. ❑

In 1952 a Jewish player led
the American League in
RBIs, became the first
unanimously elected MVP
in 1954, and played in every
All-Star game from 1952 to
1955. He was Al Rosen, later
to become the president of
the New York Yankees.
