CROSSING THE UNE page 55

This letter, offering a second re-
view of the paper's Middle East
coverage, was 21 pages long and
distributed to Jewish and gen-
tile organizations alike.
"They didn't exactly like
that," he says of the
distribution.
What Mr. Cutler wanted the
Free Press, and everyone else
for that matter, to know, are
such facts as:
• The British Mandate of
Palestine included land on both
sides of the Jordan River, which
means not only Israel but also
Jordan. So why isn't anyone
asking Jordan to "give up" land
for a Palestinian state?
• Arab leaders have repeat-
edly called for Israel's destruc-
tion and it's not just rhetoric.
("The Moslem world is fighting
a religious war against the
Jewish state.")
• Palestinians living under

Israeli rule are not a group of
ignorant, abused, starving
refugees. They have a higher
education and more democratic
freedoms than Arabs in virtu-
ally any other part of the world.
• The Palestinians have little
do with the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Arabs simply hate the Jews
and are using the Palestinians
as an excuse to be hostile.
Show him facts that prove
otherwise, he says. But by all
means do show him.
He recalls the DZF forums
where guests and speakers
would linger long after the pro-
gram. People were upset after
the first two forums: they
weren't long enough.
"As long as you speak the
truths that tell the whole story,
I believe everybody should be
able to say what's on his mind,"
he says. "After all, our very lives
are at stake." ❑

Jews Are Targets
Of Hate Crimes

Washington (JTA) — Jews
were the most frequent
targets of hate crimes based
on religion in 1992, accor-
ding to an FBI report releas-
ed this week.
Crimes against Jews con-
stituted an overwhelming 87
percent of all reported
crimes motivated by bias
against religious groups in
1992. This figure was simi-
lar to the 1991 figure of 86
percent.
The Anti-Defamation
League welcomed the report,
but called for broader
studies in the future that
would make the statistics
more reliable.
According to Michael
Lieberman, associate direc-
tor of ADL's Washington of-
fice, less than half of Ameri-
can law enforcement agen-
cies provided information for
the FBI's report.
In addition, Mr. Lieber-
man said, the FBI report
lists hate crimes by state
and not by county or city,
leaving in question what
specific geographical areas
have problems with hate
crimes.
"We commend the FBI for
its initial outreach and edu-
cation program, but there is
still much work to be done,"
Melvin Salberg, ADL na-
tional chairman, and Abra-
ham Foxman, ADL national
director, said.
Rep. Charles Schumer,

Melvin Salberg:
Commended the FBI.

D-N.Y., sponsored the
legislation, which requires
the FBI to keep statistics on
hate crimes and thus forces
state and local authorities to
do so, as well.
"A message must be sent
to hatemongers that this
country believes in zero
tolerance when it comes to
bias-related crimes," Mr.
Schumer said.
The report divides hate
crimes into four categories:
crimes motivated by a bias
against religion, race, eth-
nicity and sexual origin.
Crimes motivated by bias
against religion constituted
15.4 percent of all hate
crimes reported.
