MRIs Detect Cancer
New York/JTA — MRIs detect breast
cancer caused by gene mutations
occurring in some 2 percent of
Ashkenazi women better than mam-
mographies, according to a new study.
The study involving the mutation
to the BRCA genes, which have been
linked to breast and ovarian cancers
in Ashkenazi Jewish women, was pub-
lished last week in the Journal of the
American Medical Association.
According to the Human Genome
Project in Washington, some 2 per-
cent of Ashkenazi Jews carry one of
the BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 mutations
that have been linked to the cancers.
A 1997 study into the risk of breast
and ovarian cancers among Ashkenazi
Jews found that, by the age of 70, a
woman with the mutations has a 56
percent chance of getting breast can-
cer and a 17 percent chance of getting

Freeze Settlements: Bush
New York/JTA — President Bush
called on the world community to
end its support of "corrupt"
In remarks in front of the U.N.
General Assembly in New York, Bush
also called on Israel to impose a freeze
on settlements in the West Bank.
"Israel should impose a settlement
freeze, dismantle unauthorized out-
posts, end the daily humiliation of
the Palestinian people and avoid any
actions that prejudice final negotia-
tions," Bush said. "And world leaders
should withdraw all favor and support
from any Palestinian ruler who fails
his people and betrays their cause."
Group Wants Laws Passed
New York/JTA — Stronger legislation
and prosecution are necessary to com-
bat the resurgence in anti-Semitism in
Europe, a European group said.
The European Commission against
Racism and Intolerance, which is part
of the Council of Europe, called on
its 45 member nations to "ensure that
criminal law in the field of combating
racism covers anti-Semitism."
The commission wants govern-
ments to penalize intentional acts of
public incitement to violence, hatred
or discrimination; public insults and
defamation; threats against a person
or group; and the expression of anti-

The program encourages students

"The U.N. General Assembly has

New York/JTA — Israel believes a
Palestinian effort to bring the West
Bank security barrier issue to the
U.N. Security Council will fail.
Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom
said that he does not believe the
Palestinians have the nine votes neces-
sary to force a U.S. veto of a resolu-
tion condemning the construction of
the security barrier.
"It looks now like the Europeans
are very much fatigued, very tired
with the Palestinian efforts, and won't
give them the hand," Shalom told a
meeting of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations in New York. The
Palestinians hope that by forcing a
