Panama Bombing
Linked To Terror Wave

`Adornment Is Never Anything
Except A Reflection Of The Heart"

-Coco Chanel

New York (JTA) — The Pana-
manian Jewish community and
international law-enforcement
officials now believe that last
month's bombing of a Panaman-
ian commuter plane, in which 21
people were killed, 12 of them
Jewish, was in fact part of a wave
of terrorist attacks targeting Jews
around the world.
Earlier theories about the ex-
plosion linked the attack to the

Panamanian authorities had de-
tained one Lebanese and two Ira-
nians for suspected involvement
in the July 19 downing of the
plane. However, they were re-
leased for lack of evidence tying
them to the bombing.
Among the other indications
pointing to the involvement of Is-
lamic terrorists, said Mr. Eisen-
berg, was the discovery of a body
in the wreckage believed to be of

Jewish residents carry the body of one of the crash victims.

allegedly shady dealings of one
of the Jewish passengers on
board, Saul Schwartz.
Mr. Schwartz reportedly was
under investigation by Italian au-
thorities for links to the Colom-
bian-based Medellin cocaine
cartel.
T ast year, Mr. Schwartz, a gold
dealer, was kidnapped and later
released, according to sources fa-
miliar with the Panamanian
community. The kidnapping was
believed tied to the drug cartel,
community sources said.
But "the Jewish community (of
Panama) has largely been dis-
counting the initial reports of
some possible ties to a Colombian
cartel because of the 12 Jews on
the plane, including the three Is-
raelis," said Warren Eisenberg,
director of the International
Council of B'nai B'rith.
Mr. Eisenberg, who has been
in touch with the Panamanian
branch of B'nai B'rith, noted that
Mr. Schwartz had not been ex-
pected to be on that plane, which
was en route from Colon, a com-
mercial free-trade center, to
Panama City. The route is one
commonly taken by Jewish busi-
ness executives.
The other 11 Jewish passen-
gers were daily commuters on
that particular flight, said Mr.
Eisenberg.
Israel Radio reported that

covered with more explosive ma-
terial than any other body on the
plane.
The Panamanian explosion is
"now being mentioned as part of
a package of terrorist attacks that
occurred in the last weeks," Mr.
Eisenberg said. He referred to the
attacks on Jewish targets in
Buenos Aires, in which about 100
people were killed, and London,
in which about 18 people were in-
jured.

Wave Of Violence
In West Bank

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli soldiers
shot and killed a Palestinian
youth and wounded six others
during a clash in the West Bank
town of Ramallah.
According to the Israel Defense
Force, Israeli soldiers opened fire
after their unit was attacked by
stone-throwers while the unit
was carrying out what was
termed an "operational action."
Israeli authorities imposed a
curfew on Ramallah after the
clash, which was the most seri-
ous incident to occur there since
Palestinian self-rule began in the
Gaza Strip and West Bank en-
clave of Jericho in May.
