in 2001. Anti-Semitic attacks made up
more than 60 percent of the total.
In addition, there were 992 acts of
racist intimidation or threats, of which
731 were anti-Semitic in character.
Raffarin said he is particularly con-
cerned by a blase reaction to racist and
anti-Semitic attacks, adding that the
French state itself is "not innocent" of
this charge.

Jewish Agency
Aids Children

New York/JTA — The Jewish Agency for
Israel distributed $5,000 each to children
who lost a parent in a terrorist attack.
The agency's terror victim's fund is
allocating a total of $2.5 million to some
400 children. The money was raised by
the United Jewish Communities' Israel
Emergency Campaign. The grants given
were distributed in the form of a check
to adult children or a savings account
deposit for minors.

Israeli-Palestinian
Security Talks

Jerusalem/JTA — Senior Israeli and
Palestinian security officials reportedly
held their first talks in months.
The head of the Israeli army's south-
ern command and the head of
Palestinian security in the Gaza Strip
met on March 27, the daily Ma'ariv -
reported. The report said the talks took
place as part of efforts to ease violence
in Gaza. The Palestinians asked that
Israel halt targeted assassinations of
wanted Palestinians and incursions into
Palestinian areas. Israel insisted that
Palestinian security forces take actions
to end terrorist attacks.

Holy Sites
Bill Proposed

Washington/JTA — U.S. Christian
leaders are backing a congressional reso-
lution that says holy sites in Israel and
the Palestinian territories should remain
under Israeli protection.
The Senate bill, introduced by Sen.
Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., and backed
by the Christian Coalition and the
Zionist Organization of America, calls
for holy sites to be protected from dese-
cration and open to visitors of all faiths.
A similar bill is expected to be intro-
duced by Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., in
the House of Representatives.

No Israeli Forces
In Western Iraq

Jerusalem/JTA — There were no Israeli
forces in western Iraq, a senior Israeli
army officer said.
Maj.-Gen. Amos Gilad, appointed to
serve as a "national commentator" dur-
ing the Iraqi conflict, said media
reports that Israeli army commandos
entered western Iraq before the out-
break of the war to look for Scud mis-
sile launchers are wrong.
"There are no Israelis," Gilad said on
Israel Radio. "The United States does
not want Israelis in this war and Israel
has declared that it is not part of the
war, and has acted accordingly"

opposition to the war in Iraq.

the Jewish Theological Seminary of
America, told the New York Times he
ordered the rabbinical school's public
relations department to issue a retraction
of anti-war comments he had made dur-
ing a March 20 prayer service.
"I did not think that I should go on
a crusade while the war is on," he said.
