Jewish Radicals from U.S. Meet Vietnamese in Paris; Donate Funds to Replace Trees

A group of American Jewish radicals met with members of the North Vietnamese delegation to the Paris peace talks, a North Vietnamese spokesman told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here today. Members of the group included Mike Tabor, leader of the “Community of Micah,” a Washington-based activist group; Rabbi Michael Robinson, chairman of the Jewish Peace Fellowship; and Mitchell Krucoff, president of the Middle Atlantic Federation of Temple Youth, a Reform group.

The North Vietnamese spokesman said the group donated funds to replant trees in North Vietnam “which have been burned down during the aggressor’s defoliation campaign.” The spokesman refused to indicate the size of the contribution. He added that the Jewish activists expressed sympathy for the “North Vietnamese fight for independence and against imperialism” but expressed no desire to visit North Vietnam.
