September 28, 1996 | MATEA GOLD and JODI WILGOREN, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The little group had been struggling with words for more than an hour and Vivian Lincoln still wasn't sure what she wanted to say. She began slowly: "I grew up in Harlem. . . . When I got out into outer society, I became angry because of prejudice, because of being treated unfairly because of my color. It took me a long time to understand it. "Racism and violence," the 49-year-old Mission Hills woman said, "sort of go hand in hand," one fueling the other. Those around her began to nod.

The recent clashes between Muslim and Croat forces have demonstrated the reprehensible brutality that Croat military formations have displayed continually from the very beginning of this conflict. The junta in Zagreb will use any ugly means to further its pernicious onslaught in the Balkans, whether it be by bullying or the use of death squads. The massacre in the village of Ahinici is not an isolated event. This has been ongoing since 1991, when Croats "ethnically cleansed" the Serb population of Slavonia, a large area east of Zagreb.

The article is framed in primarily negative and disjointed themes. Three principles define a community: ideology, individuals and institutions. The American Jewish community is undergoing a transition mirroring these three factors. Ideologically, American and world Jewry is dealing with the implications of the disintegration of the communist world and the re-emergence of nationalism. The implications of this phenomenon raise new questions regarding the status and security of Jews in many nations.

I am writing on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Community Relations Conference of Southern California to express our strong disapproval of statements made by Ezell. The CRCSC is a coalition of 95 organizations in Southern California which have come together to address racial, ethnic and human relations, as well as governmental and civil issues. We are saddened by the events of recent weeks in which Salvadorans and a priest have been attacked or threatened in Los Angeles by international terrorists.

"History Returns to Haunt the Present" by Dr. Rita Rogers (Commentary, March 1) came as a breeze of fresh air in the midst of a stale stench of misinterpretations and lies about the Yugoslav conflict. Her objectivity is commendable, especially in time of prolonged anti-Serbian hysteria in the U.S. media. It strikingly stands out from attempts to accuse Serbs of all evils. The newest example: prejudiced and ill-intended allegations (based on a false and clearly misleading tip) that the freshly invented "Serbian Liberation Front" was responsible for the World Trade Center blast only a day before the arrest of the suspect, a Muslim fundamentalist.

Thank you for the informative Opinion article by Yossi Melman ("Hamas: When a Former Client Becomes an Implacable Enemy," Dec. 20). The Hamas ideology excludes the possibility of a Jewish state in Israel and its charter, published on Aug. 18, 1988, states that "the liberation of all of Palestine from the sea to the river is the most revered strategic goal." From Israel's perspective, the temporary deportations of 415 members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, as reaffirmed by the Supreme Court of Israel, was an appropriate response.

In response to "Kohl Warns Against Delay of European Unity Effort," June 18: European fears are well-founded. When you consider that the Danes who voted against unification (a new term for anschluss ) might have a family member still alive who experienced the special treatment meted out to their nation, that fear is founded on reality and fact. Even more telling is the fact that Germany is currently engaged in a proxy war in the former Yugoslavia. Regardless of the news coverage in The Times, that is a point of concern to Europeans; it is grounded in the reality of a past, and still contemporary history.
