ONCE AGAIN, OUR PRESIDENT
HAS MADE US PROUD.

When the Prime Minister of Malaysia declared,
at an Islamic Summit, that Jews ran the world by
proxy, President Bush took him to task for his
outrageous and despicable comments. President
Bush told the Prime Minister his comments were
"wrong and divisive."

His actions were praised by Jewish leaders across the political spectrum.

Israel Loosens
Restrictive Grip

German Commander
Backs Hate Comment

Jerusalem/JTA —Israel eased some
restrictions this week on Palestinians in
the West Bank. Blockades on Palestin-
an cities were lifted, with the exception
of Nablus and Jenin.
Public transportation for Palestinians
also will be expanded, and some per-
mits for private cars will be issued.
The moves come after Israeli defense
officials called for loosening restrictions,
and amid meetings between top-level
Israeli and Palestinian officials to restart
diplomatic talks.

Berlin/JTA — A German army officer
was fired after he praised a lawmaker
for making comments seen as anti-
Semitic.
Reinhard Guenzel was dismissed after
he wrote a letter of support to Martin
Hohmann, who compared the role of
Jews in the Russian Revolution to the
Nazis' actions in World War II.
Hohmann initially refused to retract
his remarks, but ultimately took them
back after threats of a lawsuit from
German Jewish leaders and criticism
from fellow members of his Christian
Democratic Party and from German
media.

Abe Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, said, "We commend President

Russian-Israeli
Oil Deal OKd

George W Bush for his forceful denunciation of anti-Semitism." Rabbi David Saperstein of the

Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism said, "President Bush has set a powerful example to be

followed by those around the globe who seek an end to terror."

Jerusalem/JTA — Russian oil will flow
through an Israeli pipeline.
The deal was announced this week as
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon
returned to Israel from a three-day visit
with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The oil will flow through a line run
by the Eilat-Ashkelon Oil Pipeline
Company, the firm said. The oil will
travel from Russia to Asia.

This is not the only time President Bush took such a principled and moral action against anti-

Semitism. In 2001, Bush was the only world leader refusing to send a representative to a

U.N.-sponsored conference on racism in Durban, South Africa because of virulent anti-Semitism.

And, earlier this year, Bush visited Auschwitz —Birkenau State Museum and wrote in the guest book,

"Never Again and Never Forget."

Our President has been a forceful and outspoken opponent of anti-Semitism all across the globe.

We thank him for speaking out when so many others have remained silent.

Washington/JTA — Henry Kissinger
joined Washington
officials to remember
Yitzhak Rabin.
The Israeli
Embassy in
Washington hosted a
memorial for the late
Israeli prime minis-
ter, who was assassi-
nated on Nov. 4,
Rabin
1995.
"He was, to roe, a symbol of the
complexities and the commitments
involved in the fate of Israel," said
Kissinger, the former U.S. secretary of
state who worked closely with Rabin
when he was Israel's ambassador to the
United States and then prime minister
in the 1970s.

`Gold Train'
Evidence Emerges

New York/JTA — Attorneys represent-
ing survivors in the Hungarian "Gold
Train" lawsuit filed an amended corn-
plaint.
It includes new evidence that bolsters
claims that the United States "modified
World War II policies and auctioned
priceless Jewish valuables to cover up
widespread looting by senior military
officials and to fill in budget gaps that
arose in the restoration program follow-
ing World War II," attorneys in the
class-action lawsuit said in a news
release.
The Gold Train carried a shipment of
Jewish property seized by the Nazis that
fell into U.S. hands at the end of
World War II. Its cargo included every-
thing from rings and watches to gold
teeth.

Pressure Builds
On Foundation

New York/JTA — The Ford
Foundation came under new scrutiny
in Washington for finding anti-Israel
groups.
Following a JTA investigative series,
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., told a
foundation official that the group
