Rosenne called Sunday for
cutting off commercial rela-
tions with countries, such as
Saudi Arabia, which provide

cerns, there is little the United

Rosenne said.
Casey, who spoke after
Rosenne, was asked about the
Saudi funding. He said the Saudis
support the PLO "for reasons of
fear, intimidation and pursuing
their own foreign policy objec-
tives. He added that "there is only
a limited degree that we can in-
fluence them in those matters
where they see their vital in-
terests involved."
IN HIS speech, Rosenne
strongly denounced those he held
responsible for the spread of ter-
rorism today. "The responsibility
lies with those in democratic
states that thought that Israel
would be the only victim," he said.
"Now they see their vital in-
terests involved."

Eitan Proposes Israel Return to South Lebanon
Rafael Eitan
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Tension and violence have
escalated in south Lebanon
amid a new flurry of
Katyusha rocket attacks on
Israel. Two soldiers of the
United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL)
and one soldier of the Israel-
backed South Lebanon Ar-
my (SLA) were killed in
skirmishes with unidentified
gangs.
A diplomatic row broke out bet-
ween Israel and the Irish con-
tingent of UNIFIL. And former
Israeli Chief of Staff Rafael Eitan
proposed that Israel reoccupy
south Lebanon up to the Litani
River.
A number of Katyusha rockets
were fired from north of the
security zone, most of them falling
short. At least one is believed to
have exploded in Israeli territory
without causing casualties or
damage. Israel Defense Force
units searched both sides of the
border for the impact points. They
were hampered by rain and high
winds.
BUT THE rocket that burst in a

juring three pupils and a teacher.

of Sharka, according to Uri

Initiatives' Discussed
But Peres Declines To Say What They Are
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres said last week that in
his talks with Vice Presi-
dent George Bush and
Secretary of State George
Shulz he discussed
"initiatives" for moving the
stalled Middle East peace
process forward.
But Peres refused to reveal
what these initiatives were during
a press conference at his hotel:
"Quiet diplomacy is really essen-
tial to discussing some new oppor-
tunities on the road to peace."
The Premier had another meeting
with Shultz last Wednesday and
visited the Pentagon before flying
to New York later in the day.
PERES SAID he believed that
new initiatives should come from
the Arabs. But he stressed that
the United States is coordinating
the suggestions that are being
made. The initiatives discussed
with the Reagan Administration
are in the "early stages" and have
to be checked with "some of our
neighbors." Peres said
But he stressed the current

"setback," caused when King
Hussein of Jordan ended in
February his year-long effort of
trying to bring about a joint
negotiating position with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, should not be allowed to "put
an end to the peace process."
When Peres was asked whether
Israel should now try to negotiate
with PLO leader Yasir Arafat, the
Premier replied that Hussein
learned that Arafat was more in-
terested in keeping his organiza-
tion together than in negotiations.
After his talks at the State
Departemnt with Shultz. Peres
stressed that he believes that
peace will be achieved. "I don't
have the slightest doubt about it."
he said.
AT THE press conference later,
Peres said Israel was concerned
about the belligerent rhetoric
from Syria as well as the Syrian
military deployment on the Golan
Heights. He stressed that Israel
was not going to engage in a conti-
nuing escalation of rhetoric
because this only exacerbated the
situation. As to whether Syria
was threatening any military ac-
tion, Peres said this depended on
its President. Hafez Assad.
Peres maintained that Israel
was interested in improving the
"quality of life" for the Arab
residents of the West Hank and
noted that some previous restric-
tions had been lifted. He
Israel was doing what it could to

from Jordan. He noted that all

ON OTHER issues. Peres said
he believed that the dispute with
Egypt over Taba would be settled
soon. He said that the peoples of
Israel and Egypt prefer the pre-
sent situation of peace between
the two countries "far better"
than the former state of
belligerency.
He stressed Israel is opposed to
the U.S. proposal to sell $354
million in missiles to Saudi
Arabia. "We didn't change our
position" of opposition to the sale
of arms to countries in a state of
belligerency with Israel, he said.
He did not mention Israel's deci-
\ :
siort not to actively campaign
against the sale.
Peres said his government was
still committed to the manufac-
ture of the Lavi jet fighter despite
a Pentagon report that the plane
is not economically feasible at this
time. He said the first plane will
be ready in September.
Peres said Israel is waiting for
all the information on charges
that former United Nations
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim participated in Nazi
war crimes before making any
judgement. He said it was up to
Waldheim to answer the questions
raised about his World War II ac-
tivities in Yugoslavia.

News in Brief
Greens Wrestle With Anti-Semitism
Friday, April 11, 1986/The Jewish Floridian Page 3-A
By JTA Services
BONN The opposition Green
Party is wrestling with a schizoid
image manifestations of blatant
anti-Semitism by some members
and avowed opposition to anti-
Semitism by others.
The dichotomy came to the fore
|ast week at an anti-Israel
demonstration at which par-
ticipants carried placards defam-
ing Jews and in a blatantly anti-
Semitic cartoon in a newspaper
published by the Green Party in
West Berlin.
The cartoon drew angry pro-
tests from the Jewish community
and several organizations which
found it reminiscent of the style of
Der Stuermer, the newspaper of
the Hitler era which caricatured
Jews as vile monsters.
The cartoonist, identified only
as "Michael," offered no apology.
He claimed he was unaware his
drawing bore any resemblance to
Der Stuermer's depiction of Jews
and advised his Jewish colleagues
in the party not to be over-
sensitive. But many Greens take
the incident seriously and have
vowed to fight any anti-Semitic
tendencies in the party's ranks.
Israel, Austria Given
Access to UN Files
UNITED NATIONS The
files on Kurt Waldheim, stored at
the United Nations archives were
made available to Israel and
Austria on Wednesday, Israeli
and UN officials said Monday.
Israel requested access to the
files last Friday and Austria made
its request Monday. Waldheim.
who served as UN Secretary
General from 1972-81 and is runn-
ing for the presidency of Austria
in next month's elections, has
l**n widely accused of having
participated in war crimes while
serving as a Wehrmacht officer in
the Balkans during World War II.
The request by Austria was
made by that country's Am-
bassadors to the U.S. and UN,
Thomas Klestil and Karl Fischer,
respectively, in a leter sent Mon-
day to UN Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar. A UN of-
ficial said arrangements have
been made for dealing with the re-
quests. According to the official,
representatives of Israel and
Austria will be allowed to make
copies of the files.

Cf?a8u!sraells Want
coalition to Continue
TEL AVIV A majority of
sraehs want the Labor-Likud uni-
b- .coall,'on to continue on the
"B8,s of the rotation of power
agreement under which Premier
Shimon Peres will turn over his
office to Likud leader Yitzhak
Shamir next Oct. 13, according to
a public opinion poll taken by the
Hanoch and Rafi Smith Research
Center, published Monday.
But the same poll found that
Israelis, by a 61-29 percent
margin, saw reasons that would
justify breaking up the coalition.
Among the respondents, 54 per-
cent favored the rotation of power
agreement, up from 47 percent in
a poll conducted last August.
Nineteen percent would like to see
the coalition continue under the
leadership of Peres, down from 24
percent in August.
Only five percent preferred a
narrow coalition headed by Peres,
down from six percent in August.
Maryland Legislature
Honors Refusenik Begun
WASHINGTON The
Maryland House of Delegates in
Annapolis last Thursday issued a
proclamation honoring Soviet
Jewish refusenik Iosif Begun "for
his ability to endure extreme cir-
cumstances and duress."
Delegate Marilyn Goldwater (D.,
Montgomery) had proposed the
proclamation in the lower house of
the Maryland legislature at the
suggestion of Jon Cohen, a senior
at the University of Maryland,
College Park.
Cohen has petitioned John Toll,
president of the university, to
grant Begun an honorary doc-
torate in Hebrew studies in absen-
tia at the university's May com-
mencement. House Speaker Ben-
jamin Cardin (D., Baltimore), who
enabled the petition to be brought
up on the crowded House calen-
dar, also urged that an honorary
degree be granted.
Begun, a 54-year-old engineer,
was one of several Moscow
refusenik Hebrew teachers when
he was arrested for anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda in 1982.
He was sentenced to seven years
in prison and five years internal
exile.
"In America, Hebrew teachers
get tenure," Cohen noted. "In the
Soviet Union, Hebrew teachers
get 10 years."
El Al Begins Service
To Toronto
TORONTO El Al, Israel's
national airline, inaugurated ser-
vice to Toronto on Mar. 31 amid
the tightest security precautions
ever taken at a Canadian airport,
much of it sensed rather than
seen.
Several hundred passengers lin-
ed up three hours before take-off
time for the direct flight to Tel
Aviv to undergo the meticulous
searches of their baggage and per-
sons that has made El Al the
acknowledged leader in security
measures among the world's
airlines.
Two armed Royal Canadian
Mounted Police officers watched
the lengthy procedure. But there
were many non-uniformed securi-
ty personnel on hand, both Cana-
dian and El Al's armed guards in
plainclothes. Neither El Al nor the
Canadian authorities would con-
firm rumors that nine guards arm-
ed with Uri suhmachineguns were
stationed at the ramps and on the
runway.
'I Run Israeli Cabinet,' Peres
:a_.
Says At 'Photo Opportunity
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres does not apparently have the desire for exercise
displayed by so many American governmental leaders.
At a "photo opportunity" during his meeting with Vice
President George Bush at the White House last Tuesday,
Bush was heard telling Peres about his tennis game.
Bush asked Peres whether he plays tennis, and when
the response was negative he asked the Premier if he jogs
or does any other exercise since he looks so fit. "I run the
Israeli Cabinet," Peres replied.

LaRouche Movement
Needs Stopping Now
Lyndon LaRouche launched his political
career as a leftwing non-entity in the
Socialist Workers Party in America. Today,
he is an ultra-rightwing danger who has just
upset the Democratic Party in Illinois, more
specifically Adlai Stevenson III in his run for
the state's governorship, by two unexpected
victories.
Today, LaRouche is bidding to invade the
Democratic machines of many states in the
hope of spreading his racist and anti-Semitic
hatreds.
LaRouche has written that "It is not
necessary to wear brown shirts to be a
fascist ... It is not necessary to wear a
swastika to be a fascist ... it is not
necessary to call oneself a fascist to be a
fascist. It is simply necessary to be one."
Is He a Kook?
Is this man a kook? That is a dangerous
question. Other kooks in history have turned
out to be Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini or
Nikolai Lenin.
At one time or another, LaRouche or
publications he has directed have blamed
world problems on Jewish groups and the
Jewish "criminal mind," the Rockefeller
family. Henry Kissinger and the British
Royal Family.
One reason for the LaRouchite win in Il-
linois, according to reports from that state,
is that the two hand-picked Democratic Par-
ty candidates had "foreign-sounding"
names. Another reason was that the elec-
torate was largely apathetic, uninformed
about the real LaRouchite politics, and
disgruntled with the Democratic Party
machine. A third reason for the victory was
that the electorate had already been sub-
jected to a political meat tenderizer in the
form of anti-Semitic harangues by Chicago-
based Black Muslim leader Louis
Farrakhan.
'Putsch' May Overtake Us
In his kind of atmosphere and context.
LaRouchism can take hold in many sections
of the country and is, in fact, according to
media reports, already doing so. People who
are jobless or in danger of losing their
farms, or faced with diminished social ser-
vices and benefits, or involved in inter-
ethnic competition for jobs, or concerned
about nuclear warfare are often ready for
quick-fix solutions. They seek ready answers
about who is to blame for the anxiety-laden
state of world affairs and for the drift to
chaos.
Unless steps are taken quickly, the Beer
Hall putsch in the Munich of 1923 which

Dr. Wise: His 80th Year
A truly distinguished educator enriches
the life of South Florida with his presence
among us. He is Dr. George Wise, who is
celebrating his 80th birthday. To show him
their feelings of admiration, many South
Floridians and institutions here have
already gathered together to wish him many
happy returns of the day.
Lying ahead is a two-day retreat next
Jewish Floridian
week staged by the University of Miami,
where Dr. Wise's considerable role there as
a former director of its Center for Advanced
International Studies will also be honored.
And the Greater Miami Jewish Federation
is planning a reception in Dr. Wise's honor
on Monday featuring a chief Israeli military
correspondent.
But local and even national events will not
end this 80th birthday celebration. In Israel,
there will be a four-day affair in May at Tel
Aviv University to pay homage to this
distinguished educator. At a separate func-
tion in Tel Aviv, a street in the city will be
named in Dr. Wise's honor.
Israel, of course, knows Dr. Wise well -
not only as a distinguished educator, but
also as an equally successful industrialist.
He was, of course, a founder and president
of Tel Aviv University, where he remains a
chancellor for life, and where he will always
be remembered by the George S. Wise
Faculty of Life Sciences and the Florence
and George S. Wise Observatory.
In addition to his energetic participation
at this university, Dr. Wise for many years
served as chairman of the Board of Gover-
nors of Hebrew University and as president
of the American Friends of Hebrew Univer-
sity. He also holds an honorary Doctor of
Philosophy degree from Bar-Ilan
"MMwwimim
University.
No wonder so many people and places
queue up now to do him honor on his 80th
birthday, including our own community. The
good works of Dr. Wise are many, and all of
us who are grateful for them, and for him,
want to make sure that they can say an ar>
propriate Thank You.

Jewish Activist in U.S.
Says Soviets Must Change Exit Polity
Friday. April 11. 1986

Number 15
The leaders of the Soviet
Union now recognize that
there can be no rapproche-
ment with the United States
unless they restore the pro-
cess of emigration for Jews
seeking to join their families
in Israel.
This assessment was made at a
news conference here by Eliahu
Essas. one of the most prominent
Jewish activists in Moscow until
he was permitted to emigrate to
Israel with his family in January
after waiting 13 years. Essas. 40.

spects for a change in Soviet
policy to permit resumption of
emigration on a scale similar to
that of 1979, when 51.000 Jews
were granted exit visas. Essas
said two conditions had to be met:
"(1) Jews in the free world must
demonstrate that they have not
forgotten their Jewish brothers
and sisters in the USSR, and (2)
there must be no Cold War. con-
frontationist tactics, which poison
the air."
He added: "A new framework
of East-West relations must be
created within which the leaders
of the USSR can find a way to
resolve the "Jewish question.' I
believe they are ready to move on
this issue, but they will do so only
if public opinion in the West con-
tinues to demand a solution, and
only if tensions between Moscow
and Washington are eased.
"There can be no progress
toward human rights in the Soviet
Union including the right of
repatriation to Israel in an at-
mosphere of tension and Cold

ESSAS NOTED that Soviet
leaders no longer claimed that all
Jews who wished to leave the
USSR had already been given per-
mission to emigrate. "In my judg

to leave and that they are sup-

Essas. a self-taught Hebrew
scholar who became widely known
in the Soviet Union as one of the
first activists to publicly advocate
the right of Soviet Jews to learn
Hebrew and practice their religion
openly, first requested permission
to emigrate in 1973.
His application was denied and
his home was raided several
times, his books on Jewish religion
and culture were confiscated and

Hawkins Praises Jewish Voters,
Says Arab Lobbyists Well-Paid'
By ERIC MOSS
Paula Hawkins, Florida's
Republican Senator,
describes Jewish voters as
"better informed than the
average voter" and claims
that Israel is the Jewish
community's most impor-
tant issue. She offered her
feelings on these and other
matters in a private inter-
view on Miami Beach.
Hawkins was in South Florida
to address a fund-raising dinner
for the Friends of Yeshiva
University.
"I've always treated people like
individuals." the Senator said,
responding to a question about
"Jewish bloc" voting patterns, ad-
ding that to her, it doesn't make
any difference if a person is
Jewish or Scandinavian. "I think
I that the better informed the
voter, the more apt they are not to
[act in bloc."
ISRAEL IS of primary concern
to the Jewish people from whom
Hawkins receives input. "Of the
I people I know," she said, "Israel's
I right to exist is their number one
[concern. That's the most impor-
I tant thing."
Her long-standing and highly-
[publieized support for Israel was
I not an easy decision, according to
[her husband, Eugene, an
I engineering consultant who occa-
sionally chimed in to add to the
I Senator's comments.
What was the decision-making
[process that led to her pro-Israel
Iposture?
"I wanted to do the right
hing," the Senator said simply.
I'There are groups that represent
(every side of every issue, and
ometimes there are more than
vo or three sides, and they're all
veil represented. They come to
i you, and you get as much in-
formation as you can from each
fide, and you decide what's
Pght."
PRO-ARAB lobbyists have
ried to influence her, she pointed
vHSkSSHS:
Sen. Paula Hawkins (R., Fla.) was scheduled to undergo
surgery Tuesday to alleviate pains in her back since being
struck on the head by a television backdrop four years ago.
The four-hour operation was slated for the Duke University
Medical Center in Durham, N.C.
out. "They're well-paid and well
represented," she said, adding
that many important and outstan-
ding people who are anti-Israel"
pressured her to modify her
stance. "It's not the right way to
go. Israel's our only true, reliable
friend. It's a two-way street, they
help us an awful lot. We should
just keep that in mind and do what
we can to nurture that
relationship."
Has there been any backlash
from more conservative political
leaders, or those representing ma-
jor oil interests?
"Oh sure. That's the price you
pay," the Senator said, adding
that, occasionally, her husband is
called into the fray. "They may
not get through to me, but they
can find him, the Senator's hus-
band, at his business phone."
According to Eugene, no large
Jewish groups supported the
Senator's position at first. "Her
decisions were made on her own,
independently," he said. Her need
to identify with Israel was simply
self-evident, he added.
CONCERNING prayer in
public schools, the Senator favors
the moment of silent meditation
compromise over Bible-reading or
any other overt form of worship.
"I have nothing against a moment
of silence, but I'm not going to say
what the child should say. I
believe parents fulfill their role by
teaching the child their heritage
and making them aware of their
traditions and how important a
moment of silence is in building
faith.
"No one," she added, "should
be afraid of that moment of
silence."
Does she believe allocating
federal funds to public schools
that allow Bible-study clubs after
school blurs the line between
church and state?
"No, not at all," she replied. "I
don't know that many schools that
do it in the first place. It's a pro-
posal more than an actual
reality."
Schools, she explained, are used
as day care centers anyway, even
though many believe schools
shouldn't be responsible for tak-
ing care of children after hours.
"But we do it," she said. "I in-
troduced legislation saying we
should. Children have to be safe
after school hours, and we're not
facing reality if we don't have
someplace for them to go."
It is at such "day care centers"
that pressure for Bible-study is
often quite strong.
IN HOMES where both parents
work, children after the first
grade are left on their own until
the parents return, she believes.
For this reason, a latchkey pro-
gram providing after-school child
care for a flat fee of $18 per week
is in the offing.
"That doesn't cover costs, but
the federal government is putting
up the rest of the money. It's a
kind of subsidy. We teach them to
play checkers, to do their
homework. It's not a curriculum,
it's more activity-oriented. Some
criticize using federal property for
this, but I think it's a good thing,"
she said.
Sen. Hawkins expressed no sur-
prise that the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith ranks
Florida fourth in the nation in
anti-Semitic incidents reported.
Does this fact, combined with the
traditionally strong Ku Klux Klan
presence throughout the state, in-
dicate a trend? Is Florida an anti-
'I have nothing against
moment of silence' at school.
Semitic state, despite a large
Jewish population?
"No, I've never witnessed
that," she said. "A very strong
Jewish influence is felt in most
large cities in our state. Jackson-
ville has a really outstanding
United Jewish Appeal office now,
and that's something new. I hope
that's all a thing of the past. I
don't blink my eyes at anti-
Semitism, but I don't run into it.
That doesn't mean we shouldn't
be vigilant."
AFTER President Reagan's
visit to the cemetery at Bitburg,
Sen. Hawkins feared some form
of anti-Semitic backlash. "I was

Reagan's Jewish Liaison
Says Reagan's Record Strongly Pro-Israel
Christian fundamentalists
are an important ally.
Max Green, President
Reagan's point man on the
Jewish front, in an inter-
view with The Jewish Flori-
dian, has disputed claims
that Americans are becom-
ing more anti-Semitic, and
stated that "most people" in
the American Jewish com-
munity "realize the Reagan
Administration is one of the
most pro-Israel administra-
tions ever."
Green, 41, was in town to ad-
dress a Greater Miami Jewish
Federation meeting.
Officially, he is associate direc-
tor of the White House Office of
Politican Liaison. His job, as he
describes it, is to involve himself
in issues related to foreien and
defense policy, such as President
Reagan's Strategic Defense In-
itiative (SDI), South Africa, Cen-
tral America, the Middle East and
Soviet Jewry.
IN ADDITION, Green has what
he calls "constituency respon-
sibilities" mainly to Jews.
"With respect to the Jewish com-
munity," he said, "my respon-
sibility is two-fold: first, to make
the case that the administration's
domestic and foreign policies are,
for the main, in the best interests
not only of all Americans, but of
American and world Jewry. Se-
cond, I try to articulate the con-
cerns of the American Jewish
community to appropriate ad-
ministration officials."
How does he actually get the
message across to the
administration?
"I don't call up the President
and articulate it over the phone,"
Green said. "What I do is talk to
people within the administration
who are in policy-making roles
and discuss it with them. People in
the National Security Council, for
example, or the State Depart-
ment, or people in the White
House."
Church and State, Soviet Jewry
and the Middle East policy are the
three most important issues to
American Jews, according to
Green. "At least, these are the
ones I hear about the most," he
said.
GREEN BELIEVES "One of
the reasons why I think chur-
ch/state was a matter of such
great concern to the Jewish corn-
unity in the 1984 elections is not
just a question of whether there
should be prayers in schools," he
said. "Jews were concerned that
the movement behind the effort to
restore prayer in schools,
specifically the fundamentalist
Christian movement, was, in some
sense of the term, anti-Semitic."
"Over the last few years,"
Green added, "more Jews are
beginning to appreciate the fact
that the movement is not anti-
Semitic, the theology is not anti-
Semitic, and that the movement is
one of the Jewish community's
most important pro-Israel allies.
As the true nature of the fun-
damentalist Christian movement
becomes apparent, the church-
state issue will become less impor-
tant to many American Jews."
Concerning the Presiden' 's
remark about America being a
"Christian nation," Green feels
the quote was taken out of context
and misconstrued.
THAT SPEECH in Dallas in
1984 was terribly
misrepresented," he said. "I've
read it and re-read it and there's

Cancel Planned Trip to Middle East
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
- Sens. Gary Hart (D.,
Colo.) and Bennett Johnston
(D., La.) cancelled scheduled
visits to the Middle East last
week, which were to include
a stop in Israel, after the
Reagan Administration urg-
ed that members of Con-
gress "reassess" their
travel plans to the region.
A State Department official
told a press briefing for foreign
reporters that the advisory to
Congressional officials was in
response to recent threats by Li-
byan leader Muammar Khadafy
that he would launch a wave of
terrorism against Americans in
the region.
BUT THE Administration's ad-
visory amounted to a "weakening
of the American resolve to resist
terrorism," according to a state-
ment issued by Kenneth Bialkin,
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
Bond Confab
NEW YORK (JTA) Some
400 Jewish leaders from 86 com-
munities in 16 countries took part
in the week-long international
Israel Bond 35th anniversary con-
ference in Israel which began
Mar. 30. The gathering made
plans for the organization's ex-
panded 1986 campaign.
Sen. Gary Hart
"The interruption of foreign
travel is exactly what terrorists
want and the surrender to ter-
rorist threats gives them the vic-
tory they seek," Bialkin asserted.
Hart announced that he was
cancelling his trip to Israel, Egypt
and Jordan after he was advised
by Administration sources that
the visit would "divert limited
security resources." The State
Department acknowledged that it
had advised Congressional
members and their staffs to
"reassess" whether their trips to

the Middle East were necessary at
this time, but denied having
directly requested that such visits
be cancelled.
THE OFFICIALS who briefed
foreign reporters said that "we've
all heard the threats issued by Col.
Khadafy, and we have suggested
to them that we think real careful-
ly about whether travel to the
region at this time is essential or
whether they would consider
postponing it."
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman, however, at an
earlier briefing, stressed that the
Administration's request only
related to visits by members of
Congress and that no general
travel advisory had been issued.
Redman said that "a fairly large
number" of Congressmen and
staff members had planned to
travel to the Middle East during
the Easter recess.
Hart planned to fly to Israel on
a trip that was to include Egypt
and Jordan. Johnston, who was to
travel with Hart to Israel on the
first leg of the separate Middle
East tour, also cancelled his plans.
Six members of the House of
Representatives, however, were
reported visiting the Jewish
State.
BUT HART said he had con-
cluded that in light of the security
situation, a visit would be "inap-
propriate" at this time. "It is im-
portant to demonstrate our com-
mitment to our strong friends and
allies in the Middle East, par-
ticularly in light of Col. Khadafy's
recent threatening statements,"
Hart said in a statement.
"But our primary concern
should be for the safety of our
Embassies and all American per-
sonnel in the region. It is para-
mount that our security resources
be totally dedicated to increasing
the maximum possible protection
for American citizens in the Mid-
dle East."

of the U.S. naval action
against Libya in the Gulf of
Sidra last month.
Reagan also "expressed his
support for the ideas and in-
itiatives of Peres, as expressed in
his talks in Washington, and pro-
mised that the U.S. will support
the efforts to complete the
negotiations between Israel and
Egypt (over the Taba border
dispute and normalization of rela-
tions) and will press for a
breakthrough in relations bet-
ween Jordan and Israel." an
Israeli spokesman said.
HE SAID that Peres, who was
in Washington for meetings with
Vice President George Bush.
Secretary of State George Shultz
and other Administration of-
ficials, conversed with the vaca-
tioning Reagan for about 10
minutes from his suite at the
Regency Hotel here.
Peres thanked the President for
his call and reiterated Israel's sup-
port for the Gulf of Sidra action.
He told Reagan. "You were brave
and right (about Libra) and the
people of Israel stand behind
you." the spokesman reported.
Peres said in Washington that
he had discussed certain
"initiatives" with Shultz for mov-
ing the stalled Middle East peace
process forward, but that it was
premature for him to disclose the
nature of the initiatives. Reagan,
who received a report of Peres"
talks with Shultz and Bush, was
referring to those initiatives in his
telephone conversation with
Peres.
THE ISRAELI Premier was
guest of honor last Wednesday
night I Apr. 2) at the 50th anniver-
sary dinner of the World Jewish
Congress at the Waldorf-Astoria
Hotel. At a brief press conference
just before the dinner. Peres told
reporters that Israel may ask the
United Nations :. release tbe file
and secret documents relating to
the war-time activities of its
former Secretar. General Kurt
Waldheim.
The WJC and other Jewish
organizations have been urging in-
cumbent UN Secretary-General
Javier Perez de Cuellar to make
public the documents, which they
believe will confirm other
1 evidence that Waldheim has a
Nazi past. The documents
originated with the now long
defunct United Nations War
Crimes Commission.
Peres toW the WJC dinner
guests. "I must say I did not know
the UN holds some secret
documents. I don't see any reason
why an organization like the UN
should keep anything secret."
THE WJC reported earner that
it has received a formal 11 ibm at
from the Israel government for all
of its documents and other

son m the three fires that swept
through matza factories in recent
weeks. Several hundred thousand

were destroyed in the fires.
Vice President Bosh
The request was made so that
Israel could begin its own in-
vestigation of Waldheim's past,
the WJC said.
In his address to the WJC din-
ner. Peres appealed to the Soviet
Union "to open the gates" for the
emigration of Soviet Jews to
Israel to reunite with their
families. "We do not hate the Rus-
sians. All we are interested in is
Israel's security and the fate of
the three million Jews in the
Soviet Union." the Premier said.
He called on the USSR to change
its policy in the Middle East.
On the issue of Middle East
peace. Peres said the economic
situation in the region is a major
factor in any plans to reach a
peace settlement. He noted that
as a result of the continued decline
in the price of oil. many Arab
states have lost tremendous
amounts of money. Arab oil pro-
ducers have lost some $100 billion
in oil revenues, while Europeans
and Japan have gained an
estimated $70 billion.
Peres suggested that the Euro-
peans and Japan should consider
investing "a small portion of this
gain in the political infrastructure
and stability of the Middle East."

Sharansky, Avital To Visit U.S.,
With Nations That Coddle Terrorists Sa*Soviets Wont stP Them
Continued from Page -A
Among others Rosenne blamed
for the growth of terrorism are
(j,ose who seek to claim there are
bad- terrorists such as Abu
Nidal and "good" terrorists such
as Yasir Arafat; those who have
refused to extradite terrorists;
Western states that have "accord-
ed virtual diplomatic status to the
PLO and permitted PLO offices to
function." as well as "states like
Syria. Libya, Iran, that organize,
direct and support proxy terrorist
forces."
The Israeli envoy urged an end
to appeasing the terrorists,
especially by the West Europeans,
and called for the closing of all
PLO offices. "No one should try
to pacify a terrorist organization
such as the PLO by granting it the
privilege of being a party to any
political or diplomatic negotia-
tion," he said.
IN ADDITION, Rosenne called
for "a total ban on landing rights
in the democratic countries for the
airplanes of states like Libya,
Syria, Iran and Iraq that en-
courage terrorism."
Both Casey and Rosenne noted
that cooperation between Israel
and the U.S. had increased on in-
telligence gathering against ter-
ronsp: Casey said this coopera-
tion had also increased between
the U.S. and its West European
April Fool's
Jokes Backfire
Bv HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Two April Fool's day
pranks, one by a soldier in
the Israel Defense Force in-
telligence corps and the
other by Israel Radio jour-
nalists, caused severe em-
barrassment to the IDF and
the Defense Ministry and
touched off a panic among
Israelis who have accounts
in Swiss banks.
Th. soldier, not immediately
identified, was promptly sentenc-
ed to 35 days in a military jail for
perpetaun^ a hoax that Nabih
Berri. ieader of the mainstream
Suite faction in Lebanon, had
been gravely wounded in an
assassination attempt last
roesdaj
Why the soldier thought this
was "funny" could not be ascer-
tained. But his joke had fairly
serious consequences. The report
of the fake assassination attempt
appeared on official IDF sta-
tionery. The army passed it on to
the Defense Ministry which im-
mediately sent a copy to Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin who was
appearing before the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Lommittee.
Rabin accepted the report as
authentic and commented on it to
jhe committee. The media obtain-
ed a copy, and the report was
broadcast by Israel Radio along
* a lengthy commentary by
ne its Arab affairs experts on the
""plications of the alleged
assassination attempt. The hoax
was discovered only later, and
Kaoin personally ordered the
Perpetrator punished.
Meanwhile, it is not clear what
Punishment may be meted out to
we Israel Radio journalists who
"i-oadcast a report that the Israeli
and Swiss governments had sign-
fa a secret treaty under which the
s>wiss agreed to disclose the
numbers of bank accounts held by
lsraehs in Swiss banks.
Israel Radio telephones were
""mediately flooded with calls.
allies. "What we have done very
badly is develop a concerted
diplomatic action, economic and
political sanctions to evoke a
penalty on the states which par-
ticipate in state-sponsored ter-
rorism," he said.
"Many of our friends and allies
are rather slow on that," Casey
said. "We can only hope and
believe that the recent outrageous
character of terrorist attacks in
all countries will stimulate
cooperation of that kind."
Earlier, Kenneth Bialkin, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Amercian
Jewish Organizations, told the
conference participants that they
can make their own contribution
to the anti-terrorism fight by
traveling. He said this would be a
sign that "you are not intimidated
by the threat of terrorism."
AIPAC president Robert Asher
said that those who wanted to en-
sure their safety could fly El Al to
London, Paris or Israel.
IN HIS address, Casey, who
rarely speaks in public, charged
that Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev has "intensified" the
Soviet effort to secure
"bridgeheads" to extend Soviet
influence in the Middle East, Cen-
tral America and Africa. He said
his Mideast "bridgeheads," which
include Syria and Libya, were
aimed at surrounding Israel and
the moderate Arab states so as to
eventually deny the West its supp-
ly of Mideast oil.
Casey said that the U.S. and
Israel have "a shared vital in-
terest in arresting this pattern of
Soviet expansionism." He said the
U.S. has tried to convince its
friends in the Middle East that
"Middle East radicals, dedicated
to weakening the West and Israel,
are also dedicated to the destruc-
tion of moderate and pro-Western
regimes in the Arab world."
He stressed that one reason for
pressing ahead with the Mideast
peace process is "to deny the
Soviet Union a lever for entry to
the Middle East."
Continued from Page 1-A
Labor or Likud.
"For us in the USSR, the
Knesset was the symbol of the
Jewish nation's unity," Sharansky
said. "This may disappoint some
people But our link was not to
Labor or to Likud but to the entire
nation. Just as Moses of old was
entrusted by God to convey to
Pharaoh the message 'Let My
People Go,' so, too, today, the
Knesset is entrusted with convey-
ing the same message to Gor-
bachev and the modern-day
Pharaohs."
He stressed that it was impor-
tant therefore for the Knesset to
devote time to a discussion of the
condition of Soviet Jewry. It
would be a great boost to the
morale of Jews inside the USSR,
he said.
The reception at the Knesset
was Sharansky's first public ap-
pearance since the tumultuous
welcome he received when he ar-
rived in Israel two months ago.
For the past month, he and his
wife were vacationing in northern
Israel, out of the public eye. This
gave rise to rumors that he was ill.
BUT HE ppeared quite fit at the
reception though Avital was ab-
sent, reportedly not feeling well.
He recently underwent a series of
medical examinations and tests by
Dr. Mervyn Gotsman, a promi-
nent Jerusalem cardiologist. In
fact, Sharansky's only health pro-
blem appears to be dental. His
teeth deteriorated during nearly a
decade in Soviet prisons and labor
camps and he recently started an
intensive course of treatment at
Hadassah Hospital's dental clinic.
Friends of Sharansky said the
couple plans to visit the U.S. in
May and will meet with President
Reagan at the White House and
with members of Congress, and
with Mayor Edward Koch in New
York. Afterwards, they will tour
the U.S. to address Soviet Jewry
groups all over the country, the
friends said.
It will be Sharansky's first trip
to the U.S. His wife was there
many times during his nine years
in prison to mobilize official and
public support for his release.

Peres Urges
New "Marshall Plan' for Mideast
Bv YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Premier Shimon Peres
warned here that "the
whole Middle East can burst
into flames" unless the
looming ''economic
catastrophe" in the region is
averted.
"The economic issue is becom-
ing the most urgent issue in the
Middle East." Peres asserted at a
meeting with Israeli reporters and
later at a meeting with the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations at
the Regency Hotel. The Prime
Minister claimed that Egypt. Jor-
dan. Syria and Lebanon are
heading toward an economic
disaster and their foreign curren-
cy reserves are at an alarmingly
low ebb.
"WE HAVE to try to be ahead
of the storm before the whole area
bursts into flame." Peres said. He
said economic stability in the
region is necessary to create a
political atmosphere to reach a
peace settlement.
Peres said that in his talks in
Washington, he discussed a "Mar-
shall Plan" for the Middle East
which, he suggested should be
sponsored by the European coun-
tries and Japan. Peres said the
Europeans and Japanese have
gained some $70 billion as a result
of the continuing decline of oil
prices, while the Arab oil-
producing countries lost in the
process an estimated $100 billion
in oil revenues.
"I found the response in
Washington to the plan positive
and responsible." Peres said. At
his meeting with Israeli reporters
he expressed satisfaction with his
visit here and his talks last Tues
day with top Administration of-
ficials. He said the Administration
is firmly behind Israel's efforts for
economic recovery and economic
independence.
PERES SAID that he thought
it was "unprecedented" that
Secretary of State George Shultz
received a large delegation of
Jewish leaders, members of the
"Task Force" to help Israel gair.
its economic independence. Shultz
received the group in
Washington.
The Administration was alsi
forthcoming in its efforts to help
Israel's economic growth by
agreeing to increase American
purchases of Isreli goods and ser-
rieaa, Peres said. He said the Ad-
ministration was receptive to
Israel's request that the L'.S. in-
crease purchases in Israel for :ts
forces in Europe
The Prime Minister also said the
major topic of discussion in
Washington was how to rekindle
the peace process with Jordan
after the stalemate which
developed following the
breakdown of talks between King
Hussein of Jordan and Palestine
Liberation Organization chief
Yasir Arafat.
Sweden's New Prime Minister
To Raise Wallenberg Question
By MAI RICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) The
new Swedish Prime
Minister. Ingvar Carlsson.
is to raise the case of miss-
ing diplomat. Raoul
Wallenberg, as well as a
number of other human
rights issues when he pass
an official visit to Moscow
next week. Swedish
diplomats said here.
Carisson will visit the Soviet
L'nion ;r. answer to an invitation
originally extended to his
predecessor. Olof Palme, killed by
a gunman in Stockholm last
month. Diplomats say that Palme
roo. had he lived, would have ask
cd the Russians about
Wallenberg, imprisoned in
Moscow 41 years ago after saving
thousands of Hungarian Jews
from the Nazis.
DESPITE LACK of recent
evidence that Wallenberg is still
alive, politicians from all the par-
ties in the Swedish Parliament
have said they expect their new
Prime Minister to challenge the
Russians about his tragic fate
Carlsson is also expected to raise
Jewish emigration and other
human rights matters with his
hosts.
Pierre Schorri. the Swedish
Foreign Minister, has raised the
Wallenberg issue with Moscow
three times in recent years, most
recently in January.
Sweden's determination to raise
the Wallenberg iame has been
reinforced by the international in-
terest it has acquired at "recent
years. ijmlwJiwri by BB being
granted honorary ritinfr'aSip bv
the U.S.. Canada and Israel.
ALTHOUGH the Soviet
Foreign Ministry invariably
repbes that Wallenberg died in
the Lubyanka Prison in July.
1947. the Swedish government
dahns evidence that he was in
prison many years later, and
maintains what it calls "a working
hypothesis" that he is still alive.
"We have now reached such a
good set of relationships between
Israel and the U.S. that it is
almost hard to imagine." Peres
said. He described in glowing
terms the warmth he encountered
from President Reagan during
their telephone conversation last
Wednesday evening and from
other U.S. officials. He praised
Shultz in particular, calling him
"an extraordinary human being
and friend of Israel."
ASKED ABOUT the growing
scandal around former UN
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim's alleged Nazi past.
Peres confirmed that if necessary.
Israel will request the release of
the file on Waldheim held by the
UN. The Prime Minister,
however, was reluctant to discuss
the Waldheim affair at length,
saying it is not a top priority on
his agenda.
Asked by the -lew a ti
Telegraphic Agency about the
threat from Syria to peace in the
region. Peres said that Israe
should refrain from escalating the
rhetoric. At the same time, he
said, constant vigilance is re-
quired with respect to Syria's in-
tentions toward Israel.
On the state of relations with
the Soviet Union. Peres said "un-
fortunately there is no change of
Soviet policy in the Middle East."
He charged that the Soviets con-
tinue to supply arms to Israel's
enemies and get themselves in-
volved with "the most dangerous
elements in the area."
Peres also had a meeting with
President Arturo Del Velle of
Panama who is also visiting New
York. Del Velle. who is Jewish,
told Peres he is a descendant of
Marranos. secret Jews who left
Spain in 1492.
Peres left for Israel last Thurs-
day night.

Rabbis Arrested
In Demonstration Against Soviets
By JUDITH KOHN
. WASHINGTON (JTA) -
I Representatives of the Reform,
Iconservative and Orthodox rab-
Ibinical bodies were among 21 rab-
Ibis and lay leaders from across the
Icountry arrested last Thursday in
\t peaceful demonstration for
ISoviet Jewry. The protest, which
listhe most recent in a nearly year-
lold series of arrest rallies outside
the Soviet Embassy here, ap-
Ipeared to mark a new phase in the
(nationwide Soviet Jewry move-
Iment following the release in
iFebruary of the celebrated Jewish
(prisoner of Conscience Anatoly
ISharansky.
For the first time since the civil
Idisobedience strategy was
(adopted here last May, the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
I Jewrv. the main "establishment"
Soviet Jewry organization with
membership agencies throughout
the country, effectively endorsed
the arrests by supporting the rab-
binical groups.
THE PREVIOUS protests here
have been sponsored by the
Washington Board of Rabbis, in
coordination with the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews, the
other main umbrella Soviet Jewry
organization. Over 130 have been
arrested in Washington since last
May by violating a District of Col-
umbia code that prohibits
demonstrations directly in front
of the Embassy building.
Together with demonstrators in
San Francisco and New York,
over 1,000 people have been ar-
rested to date, some 500 of them
rabbis.
The National Conference had
long withheld endorsement of the
Greece, Israel Sign Agreement
ATHENS (JTA) Greece and Israel signed a new
I scientific and cultural cooperation agreement, the Foreign
I Ministry announced last Thursday. The three-year pro-
gram provides for exchanges in the fields of education,
[science, culture, the media, youth activities, and sports. It
[was signed by Ambassador Spyros Chrysospathis, the
I Foreign Ministry's Cultural Affairs Director, and Am-
bassador Yehezkel Barnea, Israel's diplomatic represen-
Itative in Athens.

arrests, maintaining that break-
ing the law was neither necessary
nor justified, especially when the
U.S. Administration is already
sympathetic to the Soviet Jewish
plight.
But disappointment over
Moscow's failure to follow
through on signals that it would
ease its emigration restrictions,
and its continued harassment of
Jewish activists, led many of the
member agencies to call for an
"acceleration" of the campaign,
William Kaiserling, Washington
director of the National Con-
ference, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
AT A PRESS conference held
by the demonstrators before
Thursday's protest, Kaiserling
also announced the initiation by
his organization of an "agressive
public education effort" to ensure
that Jewish emigration and
human rights are on the agenda of
any future talks between Presi-
dent Reagan and Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev.
He said the "pre-Summit II"
campaign will be chaired by Elie
Wiesel and will host recent Soviet
emigres to Israel Ilya Essas
here this week, to be followed by
Sharansky in May if his health
permits. On a very tentative agen
da being worked out for Sharan-
sky by a group of representatives
from various Soviet Jewry
organizations is the annual
"Solidarity Sunday" rally for
Soviet Jewry, to take place this
year on May 11.
Those arrested included Rabbi
Alexander Shapiro, president of
the Rabbinical Assembly of the
Conservative movement; Rabbi
Jack Stern, president of the Cen-
tral Conference of American Rab-
bis, the rabbinical association of
the Reform movement; and Rabbi
Joshua Shapiro, vice president of
the Rabbinical Council of
America, representing Orthodox
Judaism.
REPRESENTATIVES of the
lay groups associated with all
three movements also par-
ticipated. Some 20 others, in-
cluding Reconstructionist Rabbi
Ira Schiffer, took part from across
the street but were not arrested.
The demonstrators were led away
by police one by one as those not
yet arrested remained blowing
shofars and then dancing as they
chanted Hebrew songs. Like those
arrested before, the group of 21
was expeced to be released pen-
ding trial.

Hawkins Describes Jewish Voters
As 'Better Informed' Than Average
Continued from Page 5-A
afraid for awhile. I was nervous,
but it seemed to subside."
The Senator was surprised at
how many legislators were ig-
norant of the President's plans to
speak at the burial place of former
S.S. troops. "It was during a
recess, so the Senate wasn't in
session. I called the Vice Presi-
dent and also Bob (Sen. Robert)
Dole (R., Kans.), who was on an
airplane coming back from
someplace. I kept finding people
and they'd say, 'You're kidding!
He's what?'"
According to the Senator, no
one knew presidential aide
Michael Deaver was actually
behind the Bitburg visit. "It had
been fanned by Deaver, advanced
by Deaver, and consummated by
Mike Deaver, so it was kind of
hard to reverse." Nevertheless,
she hoped the President would
have selected an alternate site,
"right up to the last moment."
"But," she said, "it's like my
friend (Sen.) Rudy Boschwitz said,
"It's over. 'It's over. Yesterday's
paper.' Rudy tells me that every
day."
HAWKINS HAS assembled a
"kosher kitchen cabinet" of in-
fluential Jewish supporters
around the state to whom she
turns for advice on salient issues.
"We have a lot of very close
friends allied to the Jewish com-
munity." she said. They include
Norman Braman. Miami car
dealer; Leonard Bell, a Palm
Beach County businessman; Son-
ny Mandel, an Orlando
businessman active in the Central
Florida UJA; Dick Brody, an at-
torney from Jacksonville; Herb
Katz, a Fort Lauderdale resident
active in the American-Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC); and Herb Schwarzman,
from Tampa.
"It's statewide," she said, "not
concentrated in any one area. I
meet with them often, when they
come to Washington or when I
come to Florida for a weekend."
ARE THERE any unique situa-
tions she's experienced as a
woman legislator?
"I have to go to the Senate gym
before it opens," she confided.
"It's kind of hard with only two
ladies, and the other lady doesn't
want to go to the gym. So, I go by
myself before it opens. Part of my
therapy is to exercise every day."
(Sen. Hawkins' health is a
source of major media attention
these days.)
In general, how are women on
Capitol Hill faring?
"I don't know, but this one's do-
ing okay," she said, "and (Sen.)
Nancy (Kassebaum) is doing okay,
so the women senators are fine.
There are no issues that we can't
work together on."
Latest Taba Talks Deadlocked
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
latest round of talks between
Israel and Egypt over arbitration
of the Taba border dispute ended
in deadlock in Cairo, and not
without rancor.
The chief Egyptian negotiator,
Nabil Al-Arabi, accused Israel of
foot-dragging. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir retorted by flay-
ing the Egyptian media for, as he
put it, presenting an "anti-peace"
image of Israel.
The chief obstacles are the
terms of reference for the arbitra-
tion panel and the composition of
the panel itself. It would consist of
three arbitrators one Israeli,
one Egyptian and a third party
jurist who would be selected by
the other two. The Israelis and
Egyptians have been unable to
agree on the third party.
The talks have been going on for
some six weeks, alternating bet-
ween Cairo and Herzliya. With
the stalemate unlikely to be
broken, the negotiating teams are
expected to refer the dispute back
to the top policymaking levels in
their respective countries.
That could lead to renewed ten-
sion in the Labor-Likud unity
coalition government. Labor has
generally been flexible on the
Taba issue. Likud prefers taking a
tough line with the Egyptians.

lFKpe From the Holocaust. By
Kenneth Roseman. New York:
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, 1985. 179 pp.
$6.95 (paper back).
This book is designed to help
Ivounesters learn about the
Eclust. It is part of a "Do It
Yourself Jewish Adventure
ISeries."
. The first five pages address the
Ireader as a young medical student
in Berlin in" 1933. The stage is set
for a series of choices to be exer-
|ased by the reader, each of which
i to a different outcome as set
Iforth in the ensuing pages. For
i choice selected, the reader is
directed to a particular page
_hich then poses other choices.
lEventually, the choices lead to a
Jfinal page which indicates the out-
(come of the previous decisions.
By using this unusual technique,
the author helps his teen-age
Ireaders to understand the situa-
tion which confronted European
IJews during the Holocaust.
(However, he strikes a false note in
that most of the endings are hap-
Ipy ones. The medical student

native endings involve death at
the hands of the Nazis. While this
result may make the book
palatable for teen-agers and is
true to its title which stresses sur-
vival, it does not reflect the dire
outcome which overtook six
million Jews. Nevertheless, the
book succeeds in attaining its ob-
jective. It introduces young
readers to the Holocaust by pro-
jecting them into the situation and
helping them to learn about
Jewry's greatest tragedy.
The Blood of His Servants. By
Malcolm C. MacPherson. New
York: Berkley Books, 1986.
298 pp. $3.95 (paper back).
This is the true story of a Dutch
collaborator with the Nazis named
Pieter Menten. Prior to World
War II, he did business in Poland,
selling merchandise from the
Dutch East Indies in exchange for
Polish commodities such as
timber. He was enormously suc-
cessful, and he used his great
wealth to accumulate a fabulous
art collection. During the war, he
joined the SS and represented the
Nazis in taking control of art held
by Jewish dealers.
He took part in the Nazi
atrocities, personally killing a
number of Jews. As the war was
ending, he used his connections
with high Nazi officials to take a
four-car train laden with antiques
and art treasures from Poland to
Holland.
Menten lived openly for a
number of years after the war, but
the survivor of a family killed by
Menten worked relentlessly to br-
ing him to justice. After several
trials and appeals, Menten was
finally sentenced to ten years in
prison. By that time, he was 81
years old which means that it took
a long, time for his past to catch
up with him.
From one point of view, this can
be considered a success story,
since a criminal who identified
himself with the Nazis was even-
tually captured and imprisoned
for his crimes. From another point
of view, it is a sad story in that
this killer evaded capture for so
many years and lived far beyond
three score and ten before paying
for his crimes.
Regardless of whether it is a sad
story or a success story, the
author emphasizes the dogged
pursuit and finds satisfaction in
the positive outcome of that deter-
mined effort to capture and con-
vict a brutal collaborator with the
Nazis.
Creativity. Holocaust,

in Wuerttemberg, Past and
Present. By Herman Dicker.
New York: Sepher-Hermon
Press, 1984. 234 pp. $18.50.
There is a sadly mistaken notion
that every word written by every
Jew is deathless and deserves to
be preserved for posterity. An
arch illustration of that benighted
idea is "Creativity, Holocaust,
Reconstruction," which includes
such trivia as the fact that in the
1880's, the director of an orphan

asylum in Wuettemberg, Ger-
many expanded the garden for the
children in his home. Similar
minutia clog the pages of this dull
and tiresome narrative.
The book deals with Jewish life
in Wuerttemberg, beginning with
the 19th Century and concluding
with the period after World War
II. The record of some early
Jewish customs is preserved and
the reaction of the Jews of Stut-
tgart to the Nazis is described.
Very few Wuerttemberg Jews
survived the Holocaust. Stuttgart
had 4,500 Jews in 1933. In 1952,
there were 500 members of the
Jewish community. This surpris-
ingly large number included many
Jewish Displaced Persons (DP's)
who managed to survive the
Holocaust and who found
themselves in Stuttgart when
they were liberated.
The author concludes with the
contentious view that the 30,000
Jews who live in Germany today
need to keep battling for
democracy in the country which
spawned the killers of six million
Jews. There are others, of course,
who wonder how any Jew can con-
tinue to live in Germany.
The actual narrative has 138
pages, followed by 20 pages of
notes, 14 pages of pictures, 27
pages of individual biographies,
29 pages of appendices and 13
pages of glossary, bibliography
and index. One table, 16 pages
long, gives the name, residence,
occupation, and family status of
every individual Jew who
emigrated from Wuerttemberg
between the years from 1848 to
1855.
A sad statistical table tells us
that 8,337 Jews were deported
from Baden-Wuerttemberg and
that 6,357 of them were killed by
the Nazis. Perhaps the most poig-
nant data are contained in a table
which indicates that in 1942 and
1944, only 4.7 percent and 4.8 per-
cent of the German-Austrian
quotas for immigration to the
United States were filled.
While the book offers some in-
formation of general interest to
those who wish to learn more
about the Holocaust, its appeal is
largely confined to those whose
relatives came from Wuert-
temberg. Perhaps they will have
the patience to plow through this
poorly written book.

Demjanjuk Ordered Back in
Custody; 'Sufficient Evidence' Cited
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Accused war criminal John
Demjanjuk was ordered
remanded in custody for a
further 15 days by
Jerusalem Chief Magistrate
Aharon Simcha, sitting in a
make-shift courtroom at the
Ayalon Prison in Ramie.
Demjanjuk, 65, the former
Ukrainian extradited to Israel
from the United States in
February, is suspected of being
the notorious prison guard, "Ivan
the Terrible," at the Treblinka
concentration camp during the
Holocaust.
Simcha said that there was suf-
ficient evidence to warrant
holding Demjanjuk in prison pen-
ding his trial. His statement came
after he had asked police pro-
secutor Alex Ish-Shalom to com-
ment on media reports that the
Treblinka prison guard known as
"Ivan the Terrible" had been kill-
ed during an inmate uprising at
the death camp.
ISH-SHALOM described the
reports as imaginary, saying that
no single person had come for-
ward with proof that he himself
had taken part in the killing of the
prison guard or had been an actual
eye-witness to his alleged death.
"It is all hearsay evidence
and we have adequate proof to the
contrary that Demjanjuk is in-
deed the notorious Ivan," the
police official asserted.
Demjanjuk, asked if he had
anything to say, protested that
the proceedings were being car-
ried out in Hebrew and that he
had to rely on interpretation. The
judge promised him that a transla-
tion of the full transcript of the
proceedings would be made
available to his attorney.
DEMJANJUK'S attorney in
the U.S., Mark O'Connor, was
present in the courtroom but did
not participate in the hearing, as
he has not yet received permission
to plead before an Israeli court.
The Israel Bar Association has
agreed to O'Connor's active ap-
pearance in court in view of his
lengthy service for his client
before U.S. courts, and the fact
that it might be difficult to find an
experienced Israeli lawyer ready
to defend a man charged with war
crimes against Jews. The Justice
Ministry is to act shortly on
O'Connor's request to represent
his client in court.

Waldheim
Could Not Have Been Blind to Deportations
Continued from Pace 1-A
Heeresgruppe E, to later deporta-
tions of Greek Jews from the
Aegean Islands.
THE REPORTS are part of the
mounting allegations against the
former United Nations Secretary
General asserting that he had lied
about his past war-time activities.
The conservative presidential can-
didate has vehemently denied the
charges and said in a weekend in-
terview that the defamatory cam-
paign against him has finally
collapsed.
New Az and Profit both said,
bawd on research in Greece, that
it was impossible for Waldheim to
have known nothing of the ghet-
tos and transports. The publica-
tions' reporters had questioned
local witnesses in Salonika and in
the small nearby village of Areaki,
where the staff headquarters of
Heeresgruppe E was situated dur-
ing the war.
"It was impossible that he did
not know anything." said Leon
Benmajor. the 70-year-old presi-
dent of the tiny Jewish community
of Salonika. Another woman.
Hella Kunjo, an 80-year-old
Karlsbad resident married to a
Greek Jew, added: "He must be
crazy."
THE DEPORTATION of
almost 50,000 Jews from Salonika
was a major operation. At least
one-fourth of the population of
that Greek town was first forced
to wear the large yellow Star of
David, then rounded up in ghet-
tos, moved to a central camp, and
then in railroad cars to the con-
centration camps of Auschwitz,
Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen.
According to the reports, this
completely changed the character
of Salonika, where the Jewish
population had not lived in seclud-
ed quarters but was spread all
over the town. After the deporta-
tions, shops, stores and offices in
the town were deserted, and trade
almost broke down.
Waldheim has always contended
that he had not known anything
about those deportations until
earlier this year when his unit was
connected with them in the media.
He argued that the headquarters
where he served on the staff of
General Alexander Loehr had
been off in the mountains, and he
had been unable to take notice of
Ghoulish German Parlor Game
Sends Jews Back To Death Camps
BONN (JTA) A grotesque, ghoulish parlor game
in which pawns representing Jews are sent to death camps
by the throw of dice, has resurfaced in West Germany and
the authorities seem determined to find the persons
responsible.
Copies of the game sent recently to schools and other
institutions were postmarked in Darmstadt. The Hesse
public prosecutor has instituted proceedings against in-
dividuals still unknown.
THE GAME IS called Jude Aergtv Dich Xicht (Jew. do
not get angry). It first appeared in 1984. drawing expres-
sions of outrage from the Jewish community and public
figures here and abroad. A man and a woman accused of
devising the game were brought to trial. But a court in
Zweibruecken. Saarland, acquitted them for lack of
evidence. The Jewish community called the verdict
"beyond understanding."
This time, the Hesse authorities have assured Jewish
leaders they will do everything possible to bring those
responsible to justice. Like the original game, the new one
consists of a board with six pawns, each representing one
million Jews. The players cast dice to move the pawns to
squares labeled with the names of notorious death camps.

anything.
THE TWO Austrian reporters
found that the staff building was
situated well above Salonika with
a scenic view of the city and no
obstacles in between. Large
transports must have been visible
from the headquarters structure,
they argued in the reports.
Inhabitants of Arsaki, which has
been renamed Panorama, told the
reporters that since not very
many of them were willing to
work for the Germans, townspeo-
ple would come up to do the cook-
ing and cleaning. They must have
reported about the goings-on
down there, they added.
Another witness, who was
quoted in both the Profit and New
Az reports, was a Greek col-
laborator with the Germans who
is still not accepted among the
local population. Asked whether
the German officers, whom he
described as noble and educated
men. had known something about
the deportations, he said. "Of
course they knew. Every small
child would know, every dog,
every cat."
Local newspapers at that time
also mentioned the deportations.
The Greek paper. New Europe,
wrote. "Finally the cleaning has
begun. Since yesterday the Jews
are leaving our town. They were
our enemies, and this we do not
mind. No one minds if he gets rid
of an enemy or of a disease.*'
THE NEWS publications also
said that while Waldheim's unit
was not directly involved in the
deportations from Salonika, it had
been directly informed about the
action by Adolf Eichmann. Accor-
ding to Neue Az and Profit,
Eichmann was in Salonika in
February, 1943 to give orders for
the deportations. At the meeting,
an officer from Abteilung IC was
present, the publications said.
Despite not having played a role
in the deportation of Jews from
the Aegean Islands in 1944 BoS
publications quoted military
documents released in Freiburv
West Germany, where the East
Aegean commander ordered the
Heeresgruppe E to begin the
deportation of all Jews who hari
no Turkish citizenship.
It was Waldheim's task to deal
with such reports, Profit charged
Neither Waldheim nor Herbert
Warnstorff, who, as Lieutenant
Colonel was then the commandine
officer of Abteilung IC, remember
those reports.

^past winter were disap-
SJl Thirty five of the 144
ranes of glass that make up the
Lous windows were removed
for repairs. They have now been
reinstalled in a delicate operation
lasting from Mar. 3 to 12.
The story began last September
when, after a quarter century as a
symbol of hope to millions, the
windows had to be repaired.
Jerusalem's climate and
Shockwaves and tremors from the
shelling of the medical complex
during the Six-Day War had
created tiny punctures in the
glass, which over the years had
spread into cracks. Therefore
workmen removed the panes of
glass with all the delicacy of the
surgeons at work in Hadassah's
nearby operating rooms.
The two "window surgeons"
are Alain Pierret, 54. and Michel
Buisson, 20 years his junior, who
had come specially from France to
do the job. They had been dispat-
ched by Jacques Simon, the son-
in-law of Charles Marc, who had
originally constructed the win-
dows according to Chagall's
directions.
For Pierret this was a return
visit. He had been one of the ar
tisans who installed the same
panes 25 years ago. "We're more
used to restoring medieval glass
windows," he said, "which are on-
ly half a millimeter thick. The
Hadassah windows are eight
times thicker or just over half
an inch but they're still very
fragile."
The last repair job on the win-
dows was in 1967 when shrapnel
destroyed four of them during the
Six-Day War. Marc Chagall was
alive then. He cabled the Medical
Center, saying: "Don't worry
about the windows. Worry about
Israel. I'll make you new win-
dows." And he was true to his
word. Following his death,
however, the windows have
!>ecome irreplaceable.
Many people were worried that
removing them and sending them
to Paris for repair and back to
Jerusalem for reinstallation might
cause the windows to be
destroyed. But those fears have
proved to be groundless. The
panes are back in place, and the
windows have been restored to
their original role as the jewels in
Hadassah's crown. Visitors to the
synagogue can now enjoy them
fully.
