Religious Parties
Receive Praise

New York (JTA) — The success
of the religious parties in the re-
cent Israeli election was "a call
for the re-Judaization of Israel,"
Rabbi Rafael Grossman said in
his opening address at. the First
World Wide Rabbinical Confer-
ence, which was held in
Jerusalem.
Rabbi Grossman is president
of the Orthodox Rabbinical
Council of America, which or-
ganized the conference.
Religious parties increased
their representation in the
120-member Knesset to a total
of 23 seats in the May 29
elections. The three parties,
which had a total of 16 seats
in the last Knesset, joined
the coalition assembled by
Prime Minister Benjamin Ne-
tanyahu.
The victory of Netanyahu and
the religious parties was a way
for voters to oppose those Is-
raelis who "began a process of
bi-culturalization," Rabbi Gross-
man said in his speech. "Israel's
raison d'etre is to be a state for
Jews and Jewish in every pos-
sible way, culturally and reli-
giously."
Given the degree of assimila-
tion plaguing the Jewish com-
munity today, he said, "how
then could Jews anywhere have
accepted an Israel that assimi-
lates into the abyss of Western
decadence?"
The conference, held July 8-
10, was expected to bring to-
gether some 500 rabbis from the
centrist Orthodox and fervent-
ly Orthodox worlds.
Sessions at the conference in-
cluded explorations of technol-
ogy, Jewish education and the
future of European Jewry.
One session was called "The
Centrality of the Office of the
Chief Rabbinate of the State of
Israel."

Is Syria
Arming Militants?

Jerusalem (JTA) — Adding fuel
to government charges that Syr-
ia actively supports terrorist
groups, the Israel Defense Force
chief of staff told a parliamen-
tary committee that the Islam-
ic fundamentalist Hezbollah
movement has received large
supplies of arms via Syria.
Appearing before the Knes-
set Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, Lt. Gen. Amnon
Shahak said Hezbollah, which
has been waging an armed
struggle with Israeli forces in
southern Lebanon, had received
improved Katyusha rockets
from Iran, as well as Iranian-
produced 240mm shells.
Lt. Gen. Shahak added that

it was clear that Syria was sup-
porting terrorist actions.
"We witnessed that a terror-
ist organization with head-
quarters in Damascus took
responsibility for the [June 26]
terrorist ambush in the Jordan
Valley" in which three Israeli
soldiers were killed, Lt. Gen.
Shahak said.
Earlier this month, Israeli
warplanes blasted a site in east-
ern Lebanon that was a base for
Fatah-Uprising, a Syrian-
backed group that claimed re-
sponsibility for the June 26
attack.
Before setting out for the
United States, Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
reiterated his claim that Syria
was supporting terrorist actions.
He said he hoped to secure
U.S. action, including possible
sanctions against Syria, to pres-
sure Damascus to stop its sup-
port for terrorist groups.

Israeli Court
Convicts Hijacker

Jerusalem (JTA) — The Beer-
sheba District Court has con-
victed an Iranian Air steward of
hijacking a domestic airliner to
Israel last fall.
The court reportedly found
the Iranian guilty of air piracy.
Sentencing was to be announced
at a later date.
The steward surrendered to
Israeli authorities and request-
ed asylum after hijacking a do-
mestic Iranian Air flight to an
air base in southern Israel last
September.
The crew and all 176 passen-
gers returned to Tehran some
36 hours after landing in Israel.
The steward said he had com-
mandeered the plane because of
what he described as the "un-
bearable situation" in his home-
land.

Organ Donation
Investigated

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
Health Ministry has created a
committee to look into a report
that some hospitals are illegal-
ly distributing organs used in
transplants.
The committee, named at the
request of Health Minister
Tzachi Hanegbi, is scheduled to
present its findings by Sept. 1.
The panel's establishment
comes after a report in the Is-
raeli daily Ma'ariv that donors,
most of them poor Palestinians,
have been selling one of their
kidneys to wealthy Israelis or
foreigners.
The report said the illegal ac-
tivity was taking place at Rabin
Medical Center-Beilinson Hos-
pital and at Herzliya and Assu-
ta hospitals.
