Kerry To. Get Shoah Records

Prague/JTA — Sen. John Kerry, D-
Mass., will be given records about his
relatives who were killed during the
Holocaust. The presumptive
Democratic nominee learned recently
that his paternal grandmother's
brother and sister, both Jewish, were
killed by the Nazis.
During a visit to New York, the
chairman of Prague's Jewish commu-
nity, Tomas Jelinek, presented the
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
with copies of the original transport
lists for Otto and Jenny Loewe.
Jelinek said he had decided to track
down the records in Prague after
learning from U.S. media reports
about Kerry's Jewish roots.

Operation Safe Bus

New York/JTA — A U.S.-based
interfaith group will provide Israel
with security equipment for public
buses.
Responding to the threat of sui-
cide bombings on Israeli public
buses, the International Fellowship
of Christians and Jews will outfit
1,000 security guards with explosives
detectors and other equipment,
including baggage-screening devices.
The $7.2 million project will cover
Israel's 6,000 public buses, and indi-
vidual donors can "secure a seat" for
$24:

ship, has died at 55.
U.S. officials confirmed the death
from natural causes of Abbas, whose
Palestine Liberation Front engineered
the 1985 hijacking during which ter-
rorists shot Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-
year-old Jewish man in a wheelchair,
then dumped him into the ocean as
his wife watched.
Abbas, who was captured by U.S.
forces in April 2003, later called the
killing a "mistake," though he
claimed Klinghoffer was "provoking"
other passengers.
Though Abbas was said to have
renounced terrorism, he told the
Palestinian newspaper Al Quds in
1998 that the "struggle between us

Jerusalem/JTA — A major terrorist
attack planned against Purim revelers
in Jerusalem- Was foiled.
According to the Shin Bet securi-
ty service, a raid on a Palestinian ter-
ror cell in Ramallah prevented a sui-
cide bombing in Israel's capital.
Further details were not immedi-
ately available, but the reported
arrests allowed Israel to lower a high
alert in Jerusalem that had caused
massive traffic jams as incoming cars
were searched by police.
