New YorldJTA — Arab countries
called an emergency session of the
U.N. General Assembly to make
demands on Israel.
Arab states seeking to stop Israel
from building its security barrier plan
to propose a resolution to condemn
the Jewish state for not complying
with a resolution adopted last month
calling on Israel to dismantle its West
Bank security fence.
The new resolution also will call on
the International Court of Justice in
the Hague to assess the fence's legality,
according to Arye Mekel, deputy per-
manent representative of Israel to the
United Nations.
Mekel said Israel is "working very
actively on the highest levels," espe-
cially with European states, to urge
countries to vote against the resolu-
tion or pressure the Palestinians to
remove the Hague portion.
"It will introduce a new element
into the Middle Eastern equation,
namely the ICJ, which would only
make it more difficult to make any
progress in the peace process," Mekel

mentary-style film violated free-speech
rights, but the decision against screen-
ing the film came after new appeals
were made against it.

and found no evidence to support
charges sounded in Bakri's film,
including one that the Israeli army
dug a mass grave in the camp.

Turkey. Television ads began recently
in the New York area, and ads also
appeared in the New York Times and
the International Herald Tibune.

an unpublished report that found ris-
ing anti-Semitism among Muslims in
The Vienna-based European Union
Monitoring Center on Racism and
Xenophobia, which commissioned the
report, decided not to publish it,
claiming the data was flawed.
However, critics said the
Monitoring Center was not pre-
pared to deal with the sensitive sub-
ject of anti-Semitism among
