NEW YORK - The American Jewish Congress last week blamed inaction by the world's pilot's, airline managements and the U.S. Congress for the Arab, terrorist hijacking'of a West German plane and the death Jews Picket Soviet Dancers by BILL COHEN CHRONICLE SPECIAL REPORTER Several hundred Columbus residents learnecT about the plight of Soviet Jewry Nov. 1, as representatives of Jewish organizations picketed the Beryozka Dance Company that was performing at the Ohio Theater. About a dozen protestors handed out "programs" to those entering the theater, but inside each one was a plea for letters ^President Nixon, urging him to pressure 'the Soviets into stopping "the harassment and oppression- - of - Soviet Jews.'' • The leaflet denounced what was termed "the outrageous exit tax imposed on educated Jews seeking to emigrate." Mark Mellman, who visited the U.S.S.R. several months ago, said 130 families were recently' allowed to leave Russia without paying the exit tax, but he added, "This is really just a propaganda ploy on the part 1 of the Soviets for the most part." "I'd say conditions are much worse than they were last year," Mellman said. "We have the exit tax. It's still being enforced - up to $36,000 for someone with a PhD to leave the country." "They earn about $140 a month.lie^ddedV'They can never pay that, kind of money." Mellman also said that during the summer, seven or eight Soviet Jews went on trial for possessing Jewish books or applying for visas to go to Israel. According to Mellman, they were sen¬ tenced up to five years in "starvation, labor camps." - . Mrs. John Resler, chairwoman ' bf the Columbus Committee on Soviet Jewry, said she thinks the Russians'are "letting up a little bit."] i "They want to see what ' public opinion is going to say," she said. "They're concerned about the trade' treaty that's coming up for passage at the beginning of the year, but there is no reason to believe that they are going to take the head tax off or let more Jews go". According to Mrs. Resler, in the Soviet Union, "there is absolutely no sign of Jewish culture." Later, ,a group of fun¬ damentalist Christians started their own picket line in front of the theater, protesting what they said was persecution of Christians in the U.S.S.R. The Christian protest was more ideological, however, than the Soviet Jewry demonstration. Signs carried by the -Christians said "Communism reigns in terror - Christianity in love" and "Christians tortured by communists." of an airline agent during an air getaway by bandits in Houston, Tex. "Libya, Algeria, Lebanon and other points of terrorist infection would not be so hospitable if they were made to pay the price of ostracism by all decent nations", the organization declared, demanding that Lufthansa and other airline pilots and managements -"announce immediately that they will no longer fly to any country that gives refuge to air terrorists or allows them or their cause to benefit from this use of blackmail". In a statement, Howard M. Squadron, chairman of the American Jewish Congress national Governing Council, asserted: "We demand that the air terrorists be made to stand trial in Libya that the Arab fanatics they released be returned by Libya to Ger¬ man custody and "made accountable for the-cowardly murdersthey perpetrated at Munich. Soviets Release More Jews Without Exit Visa Tax WASHINGTON (WNS) -In what appears to be an easing of the exit visa restrictions, the Soviet government has granted exit visas to David and Esther Markish, the son and widow of the late Soviet Jewish I,, writer, Peretz Markish^ .pr: David Korn, chairipa'n, of the Soviet , Jewry ■ - Committee^ ■ of the Jewish CommunitojCouncil of Greater Washington,), reported that the I^trtushes were told to leave uw Soviet Union by Nov. 6. ,.]I\''['l , ,,',-• In New York, the^aiioriaf'' Conference on Soviet Jewry reported that the two daughters of the late Solomon Mikhoels, head of Moscow's Yiddish State Theatre, have been granted exit visas.

Of U.S. government responsibility, Mr. Squadron asserted: "This newest air assault, with its attendant threat to an American traveler, makes all the-more bitterly disappointing the failure of the U.S. Congress during its last session to enact legislation that would have provided at least some elements of sanction against offending countries. 'Moreover, as we join .other Americans in grieving for the Eastern Air* Line agent killed by ' afyned bandits making their getaway from Houston, we remind the Congress that the anti-hijacking legislation that failed would have provided increased security at the nation's airports. 'AU who played a part in the resistance, to this legislation bear a measure of culpability for each new ~~ air terror". Jewish Scholar Blasts War Praises Those Who Refused By BILL COHEN CHRONICLE SPECIAL REPORTER Americans who have refused to fight in Vietnam "deserve an award"„- not prison or exile - according to Rabbi Abraham Heschell, who spoke Oct.' 31, at Denison University. The famous professor of Jewish Philosophy and Mysticism t at the Jewish Theological Seminary ;said that because "any! act of this war is murder"..."the deserters should be heroes. Whom should I obey, the Ten Commandments or General Abrams?" \, Heschell, who fouiraed Clergy and Laymen Con¬ cerned about Vietnam^'iij 1964, charged that the war has been "absurd from.the beginning". He added, "the country has gone nje^ugina. You think only anjadjyidual can go crazy?", -jHe£c§ell said he gave the, first major speech calling for7 amnesty in 1968, and he sajfl' he "begged" HenttT Kissinger in'lWShto considW givirjg;<anihe^t*2-to' draft' resisforslaritftdeS&ters. •' Heschell;>".who" was also active in the civil rights movement of the 1960's, quoted Jewish tradition as saying: "To kill one human being is like killing all human beings." He said American life has been "demoralized and dehumanized," and he ad¬ ded, "The majority of Americans don't care if there is a war as long as our boy's aren 't there." Heschell charged that stopping communism "was a pretext" for U.S. in¬ volvement in Vietnam. "Poqr little Vietnam going comrriunist won't* shift the balance of<power," he said. "I think communism, would be a disaster for the U.S., but whether it would be one for Vietnam, I don't know," Heschell added. Heschell said that as a result of the American "big investment" of 50-thousand -dead and 700-thousand in¬ jured in the war, the only accomplishment has been that "die Americans are the most hated people in Viet¬ nam." Heschell said he in¬ fluenced Catholic priest Daniel Berrigan to join the anti-war movement. Berrigan was later jailed for destroying draft records in Catonsville, Maryland. Heschell said, however, he does not agree with > Berrigan's way of protesting the war. He said the Jewish tradition teaches respect for law. "I could not, in good conscience, play havoc with the law if it doesn't compel me to commit a great sin," Heschell explained. fywkkTawb} Sewtce Awua£ Wteeiwg 9a Suwtoy . . .'.4..
