Detroiters Boycott
Brandeis Newspaper

ALAN HITSKY ASSOCIATE EDITOR

L

a'asoth, a fledgling Jewish
organization created by
Detroiters, is asking ad-
vertisers in the Brandeis
University student newspaper
to withhold their ads.
The action was taken in re-
sponse to a Dec. 7 advertisment
in The Justice, placed by Holo-
caust "revisionist" Bradley R.

peared last fall in Michigan
State University's State News
and the University of Michi-
gan's Michigan Daily.
A recent issue of The Justice
had 11 advertisements, said
La'asote founder Berl Falbaum.
Members of the group began
contacting advertisers last week
and will meet April 7 to "take
inventory."
Mr. Falbaum said La'asote
took several months to respond
because the group only meets
once a month.
He said similar action was
not taken against the State
News and the Michigan Daily
because those campus newspa-
pers published the revisionist
material "even longer ago. Be-
sides, Brandeis is a Jewish in-
stitution, and that makes it
even more troubling."
Dan Rademacher, editor of
The Justice, said, "I'm really not
going to worry about it (the call
for a boycott) unless we start
losing advertising." He was un-
aware of any ads being pulled.
Brandeis is a primarily Jew-
ish university in Waltham,
Mass. The Justice is funded
through student activity fees
and carries little advertising.
Some 4,000 copies are distrib-
uted daily, with another 100
sent off-campus through paid
subscriptions.
Mr. Rademacher, who took
over as editor four weeks ago,
said the Dec. 7 issue was the
last regular issue in December.

After running the advertise-
ment, however, the newspaper
published a special edition. It
carried the paper's response to
the advertisement and eight
pages of letters about the ad.
The campus Hillel sponsored a
rally protesting the ad.
Mr. Smith's ad was head-
lined, "A Revisionist's View of
the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum." The ad quoted a Rop-
er Organization poll, saying, "22
percent (some 25 millions!) of
all adult Americans have
doubts about the orthodox Holo-
caust story — particularly
about the alleged 'gassing
chambers."
The ad claimed the issue of
whether the gas chambers
existed should be re-opened be-
cause many people have doubts,
and it called into question other
facts about the Holocaust.
In a letter to Mr. Rademach-
er March 18, Mr. Falbaum said

Holocaust "revisionists" have a
right to express their views, but
newspaper editors have no
obligation under the U.S. Con-
stitution's First Amendment to
print them. ❑

Pollard Supporters
Let Down, Still Fight

LESLEY PEARL STAFF WRITER

W

hen President Bill
Clinton was elected,
Dr. Sidney Leitson
was hopeful. Now he's
just disappointed.
As president of the Michigan
Committee for the Freedom of
Jonathan Pollard, Dr. Leitson
has made it his business to
watch how the country's lead-
ers deal with the fate of former
U.S. naval analyst Jonathan
Jay Pollard.
Following Mr. Pollard's sen-
tence to life in prison for spying
for the State of Israel, groups
like Dr. Leitson's sprung up
around the country to fight the
decision.
President Clinton promised
to look into the case.
Last week, he denied a re-
quest for pardon.
"We're not surprised, but
we're very disappointed. But
we're not going to give up," Dr.
Leitson said.
Dr. Leitson said he is most
dismayed that President Clin-
ton went to the Justice De-
partment for the decision. The
opinions, Dr. Leitson said, were
formed long ago and do not tru-
ly reflect the leadership of At-
torney General Janet Reno. Dr.

Jonathan Jay Pollard: Request for
pardon.

Leitson would have liked to see
independent counsel assigned
to further investigate.
"The Justice Department did
this to him (Mr. Pollard). They
offered a plea agreement and
reneged. Of course they would
come up with the same answer
again," Mr. Leitson said.
The Michigan Committee for
the Freedom of Jonathan Pol-
lard plans to continue to write
letters and place calls to Pres-
ident Clinton on behalf of Mr.
Pollard. ❑
