Oh, Dreidel,
Dreidel, Dreidel

Los Angeles/JTA — The names of
some teams in a Muslim football
tournament in California are causing
controversy.
Jewish leaders are protesting after
some of the teams in the Jan. 4 tour-
nament chose names such as
Intifada, Soldiers of Allah and
Mujahadeen, or Holy Warrior.
"A lot of the kids on our team are
from Palestinian origin," the
Associated Press quoted Tarek
Shawkya, the captain of the Intifada
team, as saying. "We are in solidarity
with people in the uprising. It's
about human rights and basic free-
doms."
Rabbi Bernie King, who lives in
Irvine, where the tournament is
being held, said the team names
undermined those who worked to
have closer relations with Muslims.

Bloomington/JTA — Students at
Indiana University set an unofficial
record for dreidel spinning.
As the school's fight song played
over loudspeakers in the background,
713 dreidels were spun for 10 seconds
at Indiana on Sunday, a record pending
confirmation by the Guinness Book of

Rough Times
Down Under

Sydney/JTA — Anti-Semitism in
Australia rose to record levels.
The country suffered through its
highest number of anti-Semitic
harassments on the street, as well as
graffiti and threatening e-mails, for
the year ending Sept. 30, according
to Australia's central Jewish group.
"There is plenty of evidence that
the Middle East situation was used
as a' tool to express anti-Semitic
hatred," said Jeremy Jones, president
of the Executive Council of
Australian Jewry.

Jewishness Hurt Me
Says Finn At U.N.

Helsinki/JTA — A Finnish diplomat
said his Jewish background helped
prevent him from being chosen as
U.N. secretary-general in 1972.
Max Jakobson, who was his coun-
try's representative to the United
Nations from 1965 to 1972, made
the comments in the Finnish Jewish
_newspaper HaKehila.
Instead, the post went to Kurt
Waldheim of Austria, whose contro-
versial actions during-World War II
— he served as a Nazi intelligence
officer in the occupied Balkans —
were later revealed.
