Gift Of The Grape

Jerusalem/JTA — Eating grapes can
reduce the risk of heart disease, Israeli
researchers believe. According to a
Rambam Hospital study published this
month in the U.S.-based Journal of
Nutrition after two years of research,
grapes in powdered form, fed to mice
who had been exposed to high levels of
cholesterol, reduced their risk of heart
attack by 50 percent compared to a
control group. The grapes' salutary
value was ascribed to skin anti-oxidants.

Con Man Fights Deportation

Toronto/JTA — An Israeli Arab who
defrauded Muslims and Islamic organi-
zations, including terrorist groups, is
pleading with Canadian officials not to
deport him to Israel because he fears for
his life. Mohammed Mustaf Ag,bareia, a
39-year-old Nazareth native, is known
as a career con artist who has been
deported from Canada twice before. He
is wanted by authorities in Michigan
and New York and has been convicted
of fraud in England. He lives near
Toronto with his wife and teenage son
and is fighting a third deportation order.

Shabbat In Iran

Tehran/JTA —An Israeli journalist visit-
ed Iran. Orly Azoulai of Yediot Achronot
published an account Monday of a trip
to the Islamic Republic, in what is
believed to be a first for the Israeli press.
She described spending Shabbat with
the 30,000-member Jewish community
of Tehran. "For 30 years, no Jew has
come here from outside Iran," she quot-
ed a worshiper at the 13th Street
Synagogue as saying.

The Charge

Palestinians look at Israel's inde-
pendence declaration on May 14,
1948, as Al-Nakba — the tragedy,
the beginning of deaths, injury,
property destruction, loss of their
homeland and the beginning of five
decades of refugee status and state-
lessness.

The Answer

Palestinians could instead be cele-
brating more than five decades of an
independent state if their leadership
had accepted either the Peel
Commission report of 1937 or the
U.N. partition plan of 1947, both
of which called for the creation of
two states, one Jewish and one Arab
in then British-ruled Palestine.
