Addressing the Women's Plea' for Soviet Jewry on Human Rights Day' last week, Warren Eisenberg, director of the International Council of B'nai B'rjth, said that in recent years Jews have been held hostage to productive relations between .the United States and. the Soviet. Union.. "When! theyshow signs pt progress, emigration flows; when'the relationship cools, emigration is dammed up," Eisenberg said. Noting that the emigration ■ of Jews from the USSR had virtually ceased, slowing from more.than50,00Oin 1979- to less than 10,000 for 19,1,' Eisenberg said as bad as this was, it was made worse by flagrant persecution and anti-Semitism in the^Soviet Union. , ■'''-' He pointed out that' although Soviet President Leonid Brezhnevs* took a stand against anti-Semitism' at the 26th Communist Party congress last February, "He cynically opposes the most basic Jewish right to be identified with a national homeland." Eisenberg added that of the 105 identifiable cul- • tural groups in the USSR, only Jews suffer cultural and" religious deprivation, a behavior he described as "unconscionable."

The draft resolution was a watered down version of .earlier drafts which suggested the imposition of sanctions against Israel" in the event of its non-compliance with the request tc^res- cind the annexation. The final version only- notes that the Security Council would meet "to consider" imposing necessary measures on' Israel.

All daily,life on the Golan Heights, both of the Israeli resident, and the Druze inhabitants, is with Israel," Blum said. ,At the' conclusion of his speech Blum appealed to Syria "to start negotiations with us directly with a .view to achieving an agreed settlement on all outstanding issues between our two coun- ' tries, including the question of the 'international boundary.!!- ,. The Security Council voted later that afternoon on ,-a draft resolution calling on , Israel to"rescind jts annexation of the Golan Heights.' The resolution stated: "The Security , Council", having consideredthe letter of 14 December, 1981 from , the Permanent Representa- * tive of the Syrian.- Arab Republic, . ' , "Reaffirming";that the acquisition of territory by force is inadmissable, ■"'' "1) decides that the Israeli' , decision to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administra- -tion in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights is; null fand void; ' ., " '. .

August, 1949, continue to ap-- ply to the Syrian territory the Middle East issue. The Syrian draft demands that - Israel-rescind its decision, calls the Israeli action "null and void" and asks for . Security Council sanctions against Israel in case of noncompliance. Most of the nearly 14,000 members of the Golan Heights Druze community, who comprise two-thirds of the total-population of. the. region, began observing a three-day strike to protest the virtual annexation of the. Heights by the imposition of Israeli civil law there. While some 7,000 Jews living in 30 villages in the region continued-to express, their pleasure at the government move, the army was on a higher state of alert in what army sources de-. - scribed as "routine higher defense.precautions.". __ The. actual effect _of-the vnew Golan Heights law ,, means that the- previous military rule there has now . , been; replacedjiy ,the ciyjl^ law administered throug--* out the rest of Israel.
