NEW YORK (WNS) - Leading Jewish organizations urged governments around the world to take decisive action against terrorists and called for punishment of nations which provide refuge to terrorists. At a recent press conference, Kenneth Bialkin, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued a statement; saying that the Palestinian terrorist war "against the travelling public requires urgent action by the international community. The indiscriminate terror in Rome and Vienna reflects a barbarism and a primitive mentality which cannot be reached by reason or the ruleof law." He outlined nine steps that must be taken to end the scourge of terrorism: • "Serve notice that support by the PLO and other ', Palestinian terror groups must end.
