U.S. to Resume
Issuing Soviet Visas
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) The U.S. Embassy in Moscow will
resume processing visas for Jews and other refugees leaving the
USSR, but is requiring most of them to obtain private funding if
they wish to leave before Oct. 1.
State Department figures show that 3,400 Soviet citizens had
begun applying for permission to immigrate to the United States
when the embassy stopped issuing visas July 8. The private
funding requirement will be waived for the 400 refugees in the
most difficult circumstances.
The embassy had announced July 8 that it no longer had
sufficient funds to continue the refugee program, mainly
Ixvause of a surge of visa requests from Armenians.
I'nder a budget agreement with Congress, the State Depart-
ment could not seek any new funds until Oct. 1, the start of the
1989 fiscal year.
But last week, members of Congress wrote President Reagan
protesting the embassy's decision to stop issuing visas. They
argued that the move "sends a terrible signal to those seeking
freedom all over the world and could give the Soviets the
opportunity to claim that it is America, and not the Soviet
Union, that is impeding emigration."
Jewish organizations have also protested the embassy's
decision.
To defuse the crisis, the State Department agreed late last
week to transfer $600,000 to Moscow from its $119.5 million
worldwide refugee budget for fiscal year 1988.
The embassy plans immediate processing for 400 Soviets who
are in "emergency" situations: those who have received permis-
sion to leave, sold their homes and left their jobs.
The embassy said it would seek the "timely departure" of an
estimated 3,000 others seeking to leave on U.S. visas, but it
would not specify a timetable.
About 150 Jews have left the Soviet Union on U.S. visas so far
this year. Last year. 84 Soviet Jews left the Soviet Union on U.S.
visas, while 28 left in 1986. Phil Saperia. H1AS assistant
executive vice president, said. HIAS assists virtually all Soviet
Jews entering this country.

In-Depth Look at the Texan
In the Boston-Austin Connection
By DAV11) FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D.-
Texas), whom Massachusetts
Gov. Michael Dukakis named
as his vice presidential running
mate, is considered to have
been largely sympathetic to
the concerns of the Jewish
community during his 18 years
in the Senate, although he has
supported arms sales for Arab
countries.
The 67-year-old Bentsen is
considered a supporter of the
close relationship between the
United States and Israel, as
well as an advocate for Soviet
Jewry. But he has not been in
the forefront of these issues.
His leadership role in the
Senate has not been in foreign
affairs, but in economic
matters, especially taxation.
He is chairman of the Senate
Finance Committee.
Bentsen has a mixed record
on foreign aid, occasionally
voting against such legislation,
although his opposition is seen
by sources as being more
against aid in general, rather
than the amount going to
Israel.
He did not co-sponsor the bill
in the Senate to create the
U.S.-Israel free trade agree-
ment, but voted for the bill
when it was approved over-
whelmingly by the Senate.
Bentsen co-sponsored the
legislation to close the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
offices, supported Senate rati-
fication of the Genocide
Convention and is a co-sponsor
of the current bill, awaiting
Senate action, to implement
the convention by making
genocide a federal crime.
In 1984. Bentsen was co-
sponsor of the Senate resolu-
tion to move the U.S. Embassy
in Israel from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem. He also supported
the bill to allow persons in the

Meese Cleared in Pipeline Deal
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Independent counsel James
McKay has cleared outgoing
Attorney General Edwin
Meese of any possible wrong-
doing stemming from his asso-
ciation with purported plans to
bribe the Israeli Labor Party
not to destroy a proposed pipe-
line from Jordan to Iraq.
The findings were contained
in a report on McKay's far-
reaching inquiry into Meese's
activities as attorney general.
A key section of the report
probes whether any of Meese's
activities in connection with
the proposed pipeline were
"rewarded by unlawful grat-
uities" from E. Robert
Wallach, a longtime Jewish
friend from San Francisco.
McKay found that the
attorney general, upon
learning from Wallach about
"a promised covert payment
to the Israeli Labor party, took
no action to terminate United
States government involve-
ment in the Aqaba pipeline
project or even to notify other
United States government
authorities of the possible
existence of an illegal
scheme."
But the special prosecutor
concluded that "there is no
direct evidence," apart from
memoranda sent by Wallach,
that "a bribe was or would be
offered to any official of the
Israeli Labor Party."
MacKay noted that a memo
sent by Wallach to Meese
suggested that Israel receive
$65 million to $70 million a
year for 10 years at the conclu-
sion of the pipeline's construc-
tion to guarantee security.
The pipeline scheme origi-
nated in 1983. when Bechtel
Great Britain Ltd. proposed to
Iraq and Jordan that a pipeline
be constructed from Kirkuk.

The Uprising and Economic Repercussions
By ARNO HEE2BEEG
UNION. NJ year 1987 was rood for the
Israeli economy. Inflation was
confined to a IS-year low of
16.S percent, compared to the
more than 500 percent at its
frightening peak in 1984
Currency reserres bad accu-
mulated at a rrammsMr pace.
L nempioyroent was reduced.
Consumers no longer were
under pressure to get rid of
shrinking shekels quickly.
There were clouds on the
horizon, and many problems
would hare to be solved, but
the outlook wasn't so bad.
Then in December came the
nots in the Gaza Strip and the
West Bank. They have lasted
now more than half a year, and
have brought on a whole set of
hitherto unknown problems
and expenses.
The costs to the government
and the public have accrued so
much that the Israeli economy
has conceivably been thrown-
back for years to come The
intifada. Arab word for the
uprising, has so far cost a
staggering 1780 million, and
it's not over.
In general, the unrest in
Gaza and the West Bank has
not reached the goals set by an
elusive underground leader-
ship, except that the Pales-
tinian problem has become
part of the international
agenda and Israel's image has
been severely damaged.
The leaders of the revolt
could not prevent all workers
from going to Israel, just as
there were limits to their
command that ordered Arabs
to boycott Israeli goods, refuse
to pay taxes, stop dealing with
the military government and
to tear up the identity cards
that Arabs needed in order to
move around and receive
certain services.
Nevertheless, whenever
these demands were met by
the rank and file, it amounted
to a great annoyance, and the
repercussions were there for
all to see.
Even if laborers from the
territories came to work inside
Israel, they come at irregular,
wholly unpredictable intervals,
upsetting work schedules and
hampering production.
About 40 percent of the
territories' work force, or
more than 100.000 workers,
are employed in Israel, inside
the green line.
Of those, 50,000 work in
construction, 20,000 in
industry, 21,000 in the service
sector and more than 13,000 in
agriculture.

importing workers from
Europe and Southern
Lebanon.
In the end. the link that until
now bound the territories to
Israel and provided income for
thousands of Arab families will
be broken, and the Israelis will
have to cope with a sizeable
unemployment in the occupied
lands which, before the riots,
was rather negligible.
On the other hand, the
importing of workers from
abroad might create other
social problems.
Whenever countries try to
curtail severe labor shortages
by importing workers on a
large scale, they have to deal
with problems of integration
and meeting alien customs.
Arab laborers working
inside Israel go home at night.
The imported foreign workers
will become part of the Israeli
scene, and Israeli authorities
will have to be aware of this
difference. Until now. the
economic link to the occupied
territories was quite profitable
for Israel. Exports to the terri-
tories from Israel exceeded
imports for a number of years.
The exchange of goods gave
work to many Israelis and
Arabs. It created ties which
now seem in danger of being
broken. Israeli banks have
closed their branch offices in
the territories after thousands
of Gaza residents withdrew
their accounts.
Threats to property and to
the lives of employees have
changed the relationship with
local Arab customers or
contractors. A sizeable reduc-
tion in the economic activities
between Israel and the terri-
tories will be unavoidable.
Arabs will try to replace
Israeli sources of goods and
services with the help of other
Arab states which, so far, have
been supplying words of assis-
tance instead of the required
dinar*.
That situation might change,
however, as sizeable support
begins arriving from sources
like the "Popular Committee
for the Steadfastness of the
Uprising,'' which collected
more than 500.000 dinars
($1.38 million).
King Hussein of Jordan
decreed that one day's pay be
deducted from all government
workers and placed in a fund
for the support of the families
of the dead and wounded, and
those in detention.
Saudi Arabia, the paymaster
of the PLO. will continue to
open its purse and supplement
its contributions to the "Pales-
tinian case." For the last 10
years, Saudi Arabia paid an
average of $85.5 million to the
PLO. King Fahd wants "to
liberate Jerusalem" at all
costs.

Demographics Bode 111
for American-Jews
NEW YORK American
Jews concerned about the
Jewish community's future
must face up to the strong
likelihood that the community
will soon be considerably
smaller, older, and more
assimilated if present demo-
graphic trends continue.
This is the central argument
of a booklet. "Basic Trends in
American Jewish Demo-
graphy." just published by the
American Jewish Committee.
The "basic trends" dealt with
are birth rates, marriage age
and marriage rates, intermar-
nage. aging, and conversion.
The booklet was written by
U.O. Schmelz. professor of
Jewish demography and statis-
tics. Institute of Contem-
porary Jewry of the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, and
Sergio DellaPergola. senior
lecturer at the same institu-
tion.
Among the trends they cite
are these:
American fertility rates
have been steadily declining;
the fertility of Jews has been
"consistently and signifi-
cantly" lower than the fertil-
ilty of U.S. whites overall, and
absolute numbers of births will
likely decline still further in
the near future because of the
small size of the "baby bust"
generation born in the 1960s
and 1970s. Present fertility for
all U.S. whites is below
replacement level, and all
surveys indicate that Jewish
fertility is lower still.
Taking issue with scholars
who are optimistic about
Jewish fertility, the authors
say that the optimism is based
both on the "completed
fertility of middle-aged Jewish
women, which reflects the
higher levels of earlier times
but not current levels," and on
the stated expectations of
"groups of Jews including
young and never-married indi-
viduals." The authors add that
"reliance on the fertility
expectations of very young
respondents has proved impru-
dent."
"Since about 1970 the
marriage patterns of the U.S.
white population have
changed: age at first marriage
and the proportions of never
marrieds have risen for both
sexes, and divorce has also
increased." And, while data on
Jews is "fragmentary,"
existing information "indi-
cates increased proportions of
never-marrieds among young
U.S. Jews and belated
marriages do not compensate
for the conspicuous decrease in
younger marriages." Recent
data on Jews "also show a
rapid increase in the propor-
tion of divorced individuals
and of one-parent house-
holds."
"Since the 1960s there has
been a steep increase in out-
marriages (both mixed
marriages, where no conver-
sion takes place, and conver-
sionary marriages) of Jews in
North America Moreover,
it is to be feared that all
Jewish-organized collections of
data underestimate the
frequency of the phenomenon
and overestimate the Jewish-
ness of the out-married house-
holds Examination of all
available data leads to the esti-
mate that Jews contracting
mixed (i.e.. non-conversionary)
marriages constitute nearly 30
percent of all recently married
Jews in the U.S. Conver
sionary marriages constitute
only a minority of out-
mamages ."
Although information on
the children of out-marriages
is limited, available data indi-
cate that only a small minority
of the children of non-
conversionary marriages are
identified as Jews, and "mixed
marriages in one generation
entail greater percentages of
mixed marriages and increas-
ingly smaller percentages of
Jewish children in the
following generations." "On
the whole, out-mamage set
to operate toward a long
reduction of the Jewish p
lation."
Because of the low J.
fertility rate, the Jewish p
lation contains a larger pr

Territorial Service Protest
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The protest group Yesk Gvul (There?
Limit) accused Attorney General Yosef Hansh of "intimidation
because he ordered a police investigation of a pamphlet it hai
distributed.
Yesk Gvul opposes compulsory mililtary service in the admin>
tered territories for Israel Defense Force reservists.
Harish wrote to the national police asking for an investigati-
of the pamphlet, titled Pinkos Skerut (Army Service).
According to Harish, the booklet contains "on the face of it i
call to refuse legally-sanctioned orders."
Yesk Gvul spokesman Yishai Menuhin said Harish's act
amounted to an attack on freedom of speech.
The group is especially incensed because Harish sent a copy 4
his letter to the police and to the General Security Services, th.-
Shin Bet, Israel s internal security agency.

Justice Department
Appeal is Likely
Friday, July 22, 1988/yhe Jewish Floridian Page 3
Mail-Bomb Indictments
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Justice Department is
likely to appeal the U.S.
District Court decision
preventing it from shutting
'down the Palestine Liberation
Organization's observer
mission at the United Nations,
Capitol Hill sources said.
One congressional source
said she was "reasonably satis-
fied" that the Justice Depart-
ment wouid be following a line
of appeal, after speaking with
John Bolton, head of the
Justice Department's Civil
Division, and members of his
staff.
Bolton met with William
Bradford Reynolds, head of
the Justice Department's Civil
Rights Division and counselor
to Attorney General Edwin
Meese, and Charles Fried, the
U.S. solicitor general.
Sources said the officials
displayed a "general willing-
ness" to file an appeal,
although they made no final
decision. Fried was asked
whether he objected to an
appeal and he indicated he did
not.
The department now has
until late August to file an
appeal.
Amy Brown, a spokeswo-
man for the Justice Depart-
ment, declined to comment on
the status of any decision,
except to say that it is not
unusual for those officials to
meet to discuss the issue.
Sources said that the State
.Department, which has main-
tained that the PLO mission
'falls under U.S. treaty obliga-
tions, opposes an appeal.
As was the case earlier this
year when the administration
had to decide whether to
enforce closing the office by
the March 21 deadline, the
White House is caught in the
middle.
In his decision, District
Court Judge Edmund Palmieri
said that no member of
Congress, in approving a 1987
bill mandating that all PLO
offices in the United States be
closed, "explicitly stated that
the Anti-Terrorism Act was
intended to override any inter-
national obligation of the
United States.ff
Palmieri argued, however,
that when Congress approved
the legislation, there was no
indication it meant to violate
the 1947 UN Headquarters
Agreement, which obligates
the United States "to refrain
from impairing the function"
of the PLO mission.
One source complained that
Palmieri did not discuss the
treaty's reservations clause,
which allows the United States
to control the flow of "aliens"
into this country, which was
invoked in the mid-1980s to
expel about 100 officials from
the Soviet mission at the
United Nations.
A second congressional
source said it was "incredible"
for Palmieri to say that the
intent of Congress was
unclear. He added that it
would be easier to appeal the
decision than to pass a new bill
specifically citing the treaty,
adding that lawmakers consid-
ered that option "insulting."
At the Justice Department's
March 11 news conference,
Charles Cooper, assistant
attorney general in the depart -
ment's Office of Legal
Counsel, said that "Congress
clearly and unambiguously
stated its intent" in the legisla-
tion to close all PLO offices in
the country.

LOS ANGELES (JTA) -
An American couple living in
Israel have been indicted by a
federal grand jury in a case
linked to the mail-bomb deaths
of an Arab activist and a
suspected Nazi war criminal.
The couple, Robert and
Rochelle Manning, who both
hold dual American and Israeli
citizenship, have been charged
with mailing an explosive
devise with intent to kill.
Rochelle Manning, 48, was
arrested last month as she
arrived with her two children
at Los Angeles International
Airport, while Robert
Manning, 36, remained in the
family home at Kiryat Arba.
The Jewish settlement near
Hebron is known as one of the
most militant in the West
Bank.
According to federal offi-
cials, the Mannings conspired

Smith Leads Bloc
*
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Rep. Lawrence Smith (D-Fla.)
introduced a resolution in the
House of Representatives to
block the proposed $1.9 billion
arms sale to Kuwait. The bill
has 113 co-sponsors.
Smith and other members of
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee were to meet with
Kuwaiti Prime Minister and
Crown Prince Sheik Saad
Abdulla as-Sailim as-Sabah.
Saad met earlier with Presi-
dent Reagan, who pledged
that he would fight for the
package, which includes
40 F/A-18 fighter planes, 300
Maverick "G" missiles, 2,000
Sparrow missiles, 120 Side-
winder missiles, 40 Harpoon
missiles, 400 laser-guided
bombs and 200 cluster bombs.
The sale will go through
unless both houses of Congress
vote to block it by the end of
August. The Senate has not
yet introduced a resolution
against the sale, but it voted to
ban the sale of Maverick "G"
or "D" missiles to Kuwait
through Sept. 30, 1989.
At a news conference, Smith
particularly criticized Saudi
Arabia and Kuwait for
"playing one dominant power
off of another." He cited the
Arms Control and Disarma-
ment Agency's 1987 report
that shows that from 1982 to
1986, Kuwait purchased $230
million in U.S. arms while
purchasing $220 million from
the Soviet Union and $420
million from France.
Over the same period, Saudi
Arabia bought $6.1 billion
from the United States, $6.8
billion from France and $1.2
billion from Great Britain,
Smith quoted the report as
saying.
Sixth Fleet in Haifa
TEL AVIV (JTA) A five-vessel battle group 7,000
seamen of the U.S. Sixth Fleet have been stationed in Haifa
Bay to carry out joint training exercises with the Israeli navy.
The American unit consists of the 80,000-ton aircraft carrier
Eisenhower, the cruiser Belknap, which is the flagship of the
Sixth Fleet, and three missile-carrying destroyer escorts.
The battle group is under the command of Vice Adm. Kendall
Moranville, commanding officer of the Sixth Fleet.
He described the joint exercises as "routine, scheduled several
months ago as a result of an agreement by the United States and
Israeli governments for combined training by the two fleets."
tion," to the head of the
Prowest Computer Corp. in
Los Angeles. When the
"invention" was plugged into
an electric outlet, it exploded,
killing Patricia Wilkerson, a
secretary at the company. No
motive has been given for the
alleged crime.
At the same time, six
present and former members
of the Jewish Defense League
have been subpoenaed by the
grand jury in the case, JDL
officials told reporters.
Several of the subpoenaed
JDL officials charged that the
grand jury was on a "fishing
expedition" to smoke dut
evidence linking the Mannings
to three other bomb cases in
the United States, all dating
back to 1985.
Arab Activist
And Suspected Nazis
Victims in the three, so far
unsolved cases were:
Alex Odeh, regional
director of the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination
Committee, who died when a
' bomb exploded in his office in
Santa Ana, Calif., on Oct. 11,
1985. The Los Angeles Times
quoted FBI officials as saying
that the Manning couple and
three other persons living in
Israel are suspects in the Odeh
slaying.
Tscherim Soobzokov, an
alleged wartime member of
the Waff en SS, who was killed
in August 1985 by a bomb
planted in his home in
Paterson, N.J.
Elmars Sprogis, an
alleged wartime police chief in
Latvia, who escaped injury
when a bomb exploded in
September 1985 outside his
house in Brentwood, N.Y.
The Mannings, as well as
other suspects living in Kiryat
Arba, were described by
federal officials as former JDL
members and currently ardent
followers of Rabbi Meir
Kahane, head of the extremist
right-wing Kach Party in
Israel.

Questionable Truce
Iran's announcement that it accepted a
United Nations resolution calling for the end
of the eight-year-old Iraq-Iran war does not
signal the immediate end of either fighting or
tension in the Persian Gulf.
Indeed, Iraq's first response was to intensify
its aerial attacks on Iran. And both sides want
the other branded as the aggressor, and each
seeks compensation.
The two adversaries try to outdo one
another in anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist state-
ments and actions. Iran's remaining Jewish
population is in constant danger, and Iraq is
close enough to Israel to be a considerable
danger in the event of future Israeli-Arab
military encounters.
The United States tilted strongly towards
Iran after the Soviet Union offered to provide
protection for Kuwaiti tankers in the Gulf. The
American decision to reflag Kuwaiti tankers
appears to have helped even the odds in the
war between a numerically stronger Iran and
Iraq, equipped with more modern armaments.
It is in Israel's best interests, and probably
also in those of the United States, that neither
side be given additional assistance. Whether
an even-handed stance is possible is yet to be
seen, but should be carefully watched by both
Jerusalem and Washington.

Viewpoint
Mourning in the
Desert of Terror
One of the mourning rites associated with
Tishah B'Av is that synagogue lights are
dimmed light being provided by candle,
instead in commemoration of the "darkness
which has befallen Israel."
True. The ninth of the month of Av marks
the destruction of the First and Second
Temples in Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E. and 70
C.E. respectively. The day also denotes other
Mishnah-related calamities:
Whether or not more recent tragedies
actually occurred on Tishah B'Av is incidental
to the tradition that has grown up around the
observance as a day of mourning.
Today, we note the ongoing but mitigated
disturbances in the administered-
territories. We note the lack of unanimity
among the political factions and blocs within
the Israeli government. And, tragically, we
note that Israel remains isolated as the lone
democratic oasis in the desert of terror that is
the Middle East.
While the fasting and abstention that is
associated with a customary memorialization
of the day may not be universal. Tish B'Av is
marked by Jews world-wide as the solemn day
of lamentation.
We all mourn for that which is lost. And we
continue to mourn for what might be with
peace in the Mideast.

Saluting Romania's Chief Rabbi
By RABBI MARC H. TAN'KNBAl'M
NEW YORK (JTA) One of
the most remarkable Jewish
leaders in the entire Diaspora
is Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen of
Romania. Two weeks ago he
observed the jubilee year of his
ordination as rabbi and his
fortieth year as spiritual
leader of the Jewish
community of Romania.
After many years of profes-
sional and personal contacts
with the chief rabbi, I have
only admiration for his
ehochma (knowledge and
wisdom) as the religious
teacher and guide of his
Jewish community
But above all. I join thou-
sands of others in saluting
him for his remarkable
courage and tenacity in his
relations with the Communist
government of President
Nicolae Ceausescu and the
Romanian society.
It is not an easy role to be a
devout Orthodox Jew in an
officially atheist country. Nor
is it simple to maintain reason-
ably good relations with a
society that has been saturated
with centuries of anti-
Semitism.
The Romanians knew that
Chief Rabbi Rosen has excel-
lent contacts with Israel and
world Jewish communities,
especially in the United States.
Since Romania was eager to
realize most-favored-nation
staus with the Amer:an
government, they pen<-:
"used" Rabbi Rosen to tr.
build good will with Amer
Jewry, and through therr, .
the United States.
That, in turn, gave R
Rosen leverage to dem.v
among other things, an erxi
anti-Semitic press and <>
attacks on Romanian Jew.-
well as his own person.
That he has not
survived but prevailed
keeping together a shnnr
Jewish community is in it*
tribute to his intelligence
political skills. We wish
and his gifted wife many n
years of good health
strength
Lehman and Pepper Re-Elections
Veteran Congressmen William Lehman and
Claude Pepper were returned to the House of
Representatives automatically last weekend
when no candidates filed against them.
Under Florida's election laws, neither man
will appear on the ballot in either the primary
and general elections. The voters thus will be
deprived of indicating their pride in the type of
leadership Representatives Lehman and
Pepper have evidenced.
Both men have well established records of
support for items ranging from Soviet Jewry
and the State of Israel to mass transportation
and adequate health care for senior citizens.
Lehman's earlier service on the Dade School
Board and Pepper's many years in the I
States Senate made both men formi i
figures in the House from the first day of their
service.
Each of the two victors also is a repre>
tive of the progressive wing of the Demcxn
Party on civil rights issues and other matters
of social justice. On the question of fur. pi
policy, particularly concerning the Amer
role in Central America, Lehman and Pepper
differ as do their respective constituent
On balance, they are able public servant-*
who fill the model role of representative n
ably.
To each, congratulations are in order

Political Ennui and
The Jewish Vote
Friday, July 22, 1988/The Jewish Floridian Page 5
H
By DANIEL B. SYME
Now that the primaries are
over and the ofttimes comic
and carnival atmosphere done
with, it is time to remind
ourselves that elections are a
serious business. Those who
can command our votes will
soon have the capacity to
change our lives as Americans
and as world citizens.
Yet most American voters
are inherently lazy.
Frequently our intellectual
flabbiness allows potential
leaders of genuine substance
to fall by the wayside. By the
time election day rolls around,
many of us profess surprise at
the paucity of "top level"
choices.
Part of the problem is the
system itself too many
speeches to analyze, debates to
view, position papers to study.
Candidates' appeals are delib-
erately reduced to the simple
messages they know we want
to hear:
"I will not raise taxes.
Period!"
"Quality education for your
children will be one of my
highest priorities."
"We must win the war
against drugs and stop crime
in our streets."
"Every American must
have a job and decent place to
live."
"Israel is our greatest
friend in the Middle East. The
security of the Jewish state
will be one of my highest prior-
ities."
If we are honest with
ourselves, we will acknowl-
edge that these are the things
we remember most as we
enter the voting booth recol-
lections tempered, of course,
by the candidates' most
glaring gaffes and misstate-
ments. For better or worse,
that's the reality.
With all its flaws, the system
has worked fairly well over the
years. Most of the time, Amer-
ican voters reiect extremes
and generally elevate to office
candidates who have a healthy
respect for democratic values.
But this election may be
different. I have a gnawing
fear, fed by casual comments I
hear all around the country,
that the 1988 contests are not
being taken as seriously as
they must be. I am deeply
concerned lest the Jewish
community become victim to
this ennui.
We Jews, whatever our
party preference, are active
participants in the election
Crocess. We have voted in
irge numbers, and the impact
of our ballots has often made
the difference, particularly in
states with large number of
electoral votes the states
were most Jews live. Politi-
cians take us seriously, for we
are a key factor in their quest.
In 1988, however, a growing
body of evidence leads me to
believe that the Jewish
community and Jewish voters
might be "sitting out" the
1988 Presidential and
Congressional elections,
reflecting an uncharacteristic
apathy about the next occu-
pant of the White House and
the Senate and House with
which he will have to work.
One red flag has been raised
by Graham Allison, dean of the
Kennedy School of Govern-
ment at Harvard University.
Allison warns that the down-
trend in voter turnout that set
in after 1960 will continue in
1988.
In 1960, says Allison, 62.8
percent of eligible voters went
to the polls to choose between
John F. Kennedy and Richard
Nixon, by 1984, only 53
percent exercised their vote in
Ronald Reagan's triumph over
Walter Mondale. And, says
Allison, this November "up to
90 million people of voting age
are expected to shun the ballot
boxes, assuring that the
United States will remain last
among industrialized democra-
cies in voter participation."
Other groups are working
assiduously to advance their
own agendas. According to
People for the American Way,
the radical right is alive and
well, raising huge sums of
money through direct mail,
compiling its "hit list" of
congressmen targeted for
defeat in November, regis-
tering voters sympathetic to
its goals and making sure that
every one of its adherents will
have transportation so they
can vote in every primary and
in the general election.
The same is true of the
Moral Majority, anti-
abortionist groups and other
single-issue constituencies. A
spokesman for one of these
groups has stated publicly that
he is not interested in having
everyone vote. If he can muster
his forces, he asserts, then the
lower the turnout, the better
for his group's goals.
Alarmism is premature. But
I wish to pose two questions to
the Jewish community.
Where are our voter regis-
tration programs and sites?
What steps are we taking to
enable the elderly, the infirm
and those without transporta-
tion to vote on election day?
We had best get moving -
and fast on college
campuses, at synagogues,
Jewish centers, federation
offices and local community
relations councils. Whatever
our party preference, we Jews
must vote, lest we find
ourselves wringing our hands
in dismay on the first
Wednesday in November at
what might have been.
Let it be known that the
Jewish community was there
in force whatever the result.
We have no other responsible
choice. The freedoms we
cherish and the values we
espouse will either be bols-
tered or crippled by what we
do now. Election day is only
four months off.

"Exclusivity" Bows
To Civil Rights
By ROBERT E. SEGAL
BOSTON (JTA) Sex bias
in business-oriented private
clubs has been hit head-on by a
unanimous vote of the
Supreme Court.
Both the New York State
Club Association and
columnist George Will are
grieving over this latest civil
rights advance.
But thousands of Americans
who comprehend the close
relationship between member-
ship in private clubs and the
probability of gaining boosts
up the business ladder sense a
triumph in the court's ruling.
The New York State Club
Association is not happy with
the court's action. It was the
state Club Association that
had asked for the overturn of a
1984 New York City law
prohibiting discrimination in
business-oriented private
clubs.
George Will bewails the new
anti-bias ruling as a wallop to
the First Amendment's guar-
antee of freedom of associa-
tion.
The new scenario calling for
a few hundred well-tailored
women to exult in their right
to park their briefcases next to
the briefcases of men in the
same class gives him night-
mares. "Do we really want to
trash remaining notions of
privacy?" he whines.
Discrimination in business,
social, and artistic circles has
cry against such practices was
heard even in the early 19th
century, when James Russell
Lowell resigned from the pres-
tigious Boston Town and
Country Club wherein literati
assembled.
The occasion was the refusal
of admittance to the cele-
brated black writer, Frederick
Douglass. Picking up his hat to
leave, Lowell declared: "I am
an unfit companion for those
who are too good to associate
with Frederick Douglas."
The present-day well-
organized Jewish community
has fought energetically to
point up and diminish bias in
business-oriented clubs and
associations.
Campaigns against discrim-
ination experienced by Jews in
the middle and upper echelons
of banking, insurance and
utility industries have success-
fully been fought by Jewish
agencies trying to achieve
passage of fair employment-
practices legislation.
Aware of the close relation-
local country clubs that until
then made it a practice not to
admit Jews, and I simply
declined the invitation."
Later, when he joined a
downtown club in which busi-
ness was much on the minds of
members, he did so only with
the understanding that other
Jews would become members
also.
The leaders of the Junior
Chamber of Commerce found a
fight on their hands a few
years ago, and eventually
opened membership to women.
Rotary didn't need much
urging to bring women on to
their rosters.
A few years ago. battles
against discrimination in Elks
Clubs were launched on behalf
of blacks. In this and similar
instances, the tough prospect
of losing liquor licenses
controlled by the states
convinced those in power to
open the doors on a color-blind
basis.
Lawyers who aspire to court
positions and folks running for
ship between the prospects of Political office have developed
advancement in corporations
being somewhat dependent on
finding acceptance in well-
established clubs, those
devoting constant effort for
change can cite convincing
case histories.
One involves the experience
of Irving Shapiro, who rose to
the Du Pont company's
topmost rank. "As soon as my
designation to this position
an acute sense of the impor-
tance of checking out of clubs
practicing religious and racial
discrimination.
In finding reason to rejoice
over the Supreme Court deci-
sion with which these
comments began, I recalled a
sorry chapter in the history of
my alma mater.

Emigration Increase
NEW YORK iJTAi A
total of 1,493 Jews were
allowed to leave the Soviet
Union in June, but only 150 of
them, or 10 percent, went to
Israel, according to figures
^ased by the Soviet Jewry
Research Bureau of the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry.
The June total represents an
increase of 434 over the
number of Jews allowed to
leave the month before. It is
697 Jews more than the
number allowed to leave
during the same month last
year.
The emigration tally for the
first six months of 1988 stands
at 6,078, compared to 3,104
Jews allowed to leave during
the first half of 1987.
The National Conference
figures for June contrast
slightly with those released
over the weekend by the Inter-
governmental Committee for
Migration in Geneva. It
reported that 1.470 Jews left
the Soviet Union, of whom 127
went to Israel.
According to a spokesman
for the National Conference,
the Geneva figures do not
include the 23 Jews who
traveled to Israel via
Bucharest. Romania.
The Geneva figures also
included a half-year emigra-
tion total of 6,930, consider-
ably higher than the National
Conference figures.
FBI Probes Israeli Firms
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation is probing two Israeli
companies for possible ties to
Melvyn Paisley, a former Navy
official who has been impli-
cated in the current U.S. mili-
tary procurement scandal.
The companies, Mazlat Ltd.
and Pocal Industries, were
listed on a search warrant that
gave the FBI authority to seize
evidence from Paisley's home
in McLean, Va. The Israeli
companies are the only foreign
ones among 11 cited in the
warrant.
Sam Reich, president of
Pocal Industries in Scranton,
Pa., said in a telephone inter-
view that he was "very
surprised" that his company's
ties to Paisley are being inves-
tigated.
He said Pocal is a small
company, with about 50
employees, adding that "we
never, never had any commer-
cial or any business relation-
ship" with Paisley.
The New York Times quoted
the warrant as seeking
evidence that Paisley, an
assistant secretary of the
Navy from 1981 to 1987. has
worked for Pocal or helped it
obtain contracts.
Another of the 11 companies
being investigated is Martin
Marietta Ordinance Systems
Inc., which recently placed a
Pentagon bid along with Pocal
and its larger Israeli affiliate,
Soltam Ltd. of Haifa, to build
120mm mortars.
New Settlement Inaugurated
By ( ATHRINE GERSON
JERUSALEM (JTA) A new settlement in the West Bank,
to be known as Shima, was to be inaugurated officially this week.
It is the first settlement to be consecrated since the Palestinian
uprising began seven months ago.
The settlement will be built on what is presently a Nahal or
paramilitary agricultural outpost south of Mount Hebron.
Defense Ministry sources said it will be the last settlement
built in the administered territories before the Knesset elections
on Nov. 1.
Shima will replace Assael, one of six settlements the Labor-
Likud national unity government agreed to build in the West
Bank when it took office in 1984.
The Assael project was abandoned because of Palestinian
claims to some of the land on which it was to be built.
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
Jewish Ageucy official
defended Israel's new policy
with respect to Jews leaving
the Soviet Union, but said he
did not believe it would solve
the dropout problem.
Uri Gordon, head of the
agency's immigration and
absorption department, said
Soviet Jews do not know
enough about Israel or
Judaism, and cannot learn as
long as there are no diplomatic
ties between Jerusalem and
Moscow.
According to Jewish Agency
sources, during the first three
months of this year, every Jew
who emigrated from the city of
Kharkov with an Israeli visa
went to the United States.
The dropout rate from Kiev.
Odessa and Minsk was 95
percent, and agency officials
told reporters they doubted
the situation would improve in
the near future.
Gordon said he approved of
the Cabinets decision which
stated that Israel would issue
Israeli visas only to those Jews
committed to settling in Israel
when they leave the USSR.
To ensure that policy, Soviet
Jews will have to pick up their
visas at the Israeli Embassy in
Bucharest, Romania, from
where they will be flown
directly to Tel Aviv.
The policy is aimed at
reducing the dropout phenom-
enon Jews who leave the
Soviet Union with Israeli visas
but settle in Western coun-
tries, chiefly the United
States.
Gordon urged Israelis to
write letters to Soviet Jews
describing life in Israel, so that
the potential emigres will not
think only in terms of settling
in the United States.
He also said efforts should
be made to take advantage of
the more liberal policies of
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorba-
chev to teach Soviet Jews
more about their heritage
Resettled Refuseniks
Several hundred Russian
Jews, who have emigrated to
Israel recently came together
at Tel Aviv University for The
Reunion of Former Prisoners
of Zion and Refuseniks.
A highlight of the program

Hamadei Admits
Smuggling Explosives
Friday, July 22, 1988/The Jewish Floridian Page 7
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) An Arab
accused of air piracy and
murder admitted in a Frank-
furt court that he smuggled
explosives into West Germany
n two occasions.
But Mohammed Hamadei, a
Lebanese national, claimed he
did not know what the explo-
sives were to be used for when
he brought them into the
untry as a favor for
Lebanese friends.
He insisted he is innocent of
any other crime.
Hamadei is wanted by the
I'nited States in connection
with the June 1985 hijacking of
a TWA airliner in Beirut and
the murder of one of its
passenger*, U.S. Navy diver
Robert Dean Stethem of
Waldorf, Md.
West Germany did not
romply with an American
extradition request, possibly
out >>f a fear for the life of a
West German national, Alfred
Cordes, who was kidnapped
and held hostage in Beirut last
year. It was decided to try
Hamadei here instead.
The kidnapping in Beirut
was believed to be the work of
Hezbollah, the extremist
Shiite militia in Lebanon.
Hamadei denied any connec-
tion with Hezbollah.
Hamadei is being tried here
as a juvenile for the time
being, because allegedly, he
was under age at the time of
the hijacking.
But the prosecutor has ques-
tioned the authenticity of
Lebanese documents attesting
to his age. His actual age
remains to be determined.
Hamadei complained in
court that West German inves-
tigators pressured a confes-
sion from him by threatening
extradition to the United
States where he might face the
death penalty.
Rebuilding Beita Homes
H< )l ISTON (JTA) An American-Israeli fund has been set up
to finance the rebuilding of Arab-owned homes in the West Bank
\ illage of Beita. site of an April clash between Arab villagers and
vish settlers that left 16-year-old settler Tirza Porat dead.
The Israeli army blew up fourteen of the village's houses,
although an army report found Porat died from a bullet fired by
a fellow settler and not from Arab stoning, as was initially
reported.
(>rtfanizers of the Rebuild Beita Fund, including Rabbi Allen
Freehling of Los Angeles. Rev. William Van Etten Casey of
Brighton. Mass.. Rabbi Balfour Brickner of New York and
coordinator Abbie Lipshultz of Houston, said their hope is that it
may be a step toward establishing better Israeli-Palestinian
communication."
literature in Yiddish Translation
AMHERST, Mass. (JTA) A 24-page catalog, which is being
distributed to major university and research libraries by the
National Yiddish Book Center, features over 300 out-of-print
Yiddish translations of world literature.
The items, most of which were translated during the first half
of the twentieth century, represent 14 original languages.
Some major Yiddish writers translated many of the titles,
including Isaac Bashevis Singer, who supported himself in
Warsaw in the early 1930's by translating into Yiddish novels
like Thomas Mann's "The Magic Mountain" and Erich Maria
Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front."
The Center, which published the catalog with help from a
grant from the Albert A. List Foundation of New York City and
from the Center's 13,000 members, has collected some 750,000
Yiddish books since 1980, when the non-profit organization was
founded by young students and scholars.

Sentences in Two Controversies

JERUSALEM (JTA) Two
Israeli courts have ruled on
controversial issues. A Ramla
district court judge imposed a
stiff sentence on four Israeli
leftists who violated a law
against having contacts with
terrorist organizations.
The Supreme Court, mean-
while, made a strong state-
ment on respect for human life

jail for killing an Arab youth.
In Ramla, Magistrate

By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin warned that the intro-
duction of ground-to-ground
missiles by the Arab armies
gives "a new dimension" to
the Arab-Israeli conflict and
poses a direct and serious
threat against Israel.
Addressing more than 600
Jewish business and communal
leaders at a State of Israel
Bonds luncheon at the Plaza
Hotel here, Rabin said that the
recent purchasing of ground-
to-ground missiles by several
Arab countries, and the use of
these missiles by Iraq to attack
Iranian civilian centers, is only
part of the escalating arms
race in the Middle East.
According to the defense
minister, the Arab countries
have spent between 40 and 60
billion dollars in the last year
for new arms purchases and
the maintenance of their
armies.
Syria's tank force alone.
Rabin disclosed, is three times
that of France, and twice more
than Britain's.
Rabin charged that the
Soviet Union continues to be
the main supplier of arms to
Israel's enemies.
The military threat of the
Arab armies excluding
Egypt against Israel is one
of "three levels of threat to
Israel's security," Rabin
noted.
The other two, he said, are
the terrorist threat and the
current uprising in the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Rabin said the continued
violence in the territories is a
war "against the very exist-
ence of Israel, and it is a
danger to its security and well-
being."

Peace Group Lauds PLO
Cancer-Stricken Kids
Come to Summer Camp
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Jewish children with cancer,
about half of them from the
United States and Canada and
the other half from Israel, will
take part again this summer in
typical Catskill Mountains
summer camp activities.
The program, called Camp
Simcha, is one of several
projects of <"hai Lifeline, a
non-profit agency created to
provide help to Jewish children
with cancer and other life-
threatening illnesses.
Chai Lifeline was founded in
1986 by Rabbi Pinchos
Horowitz, a Hasidic rabbi who
has a congregation in
Brooklyn's Boro Park section.
The program does not yet
have its own facility, but hopes
to eventually purchase one in
the Catskills. In the meantime,
Horowitz arranges for the chil-
dren to participate at exisitng
boys and girls camps, which
maintain kosher dining stan-
dards.
The children, aged sue to 18,
pay no fees. El AJ airlines has

and is doing so again this
summer.
least 1,000 Israeli children
with various forms of cancer.
In North America, there are
between 2,500 and 3.000
cancer-sick Jewish children.
Camp Simcha is the only
summer camp program
anywhere under kosher
auspices for children stricken
with cancer. The camp experi-
ence provides them with a
combination of fun. sun and a
scenic environment, plus
learning, meeting new friends
and experiencing an atmos-
phere of hope.
"We are essentially a life-
time for both children and
parents." Horowitz said.
"After an exhausting year of
doctors, hospitals and" hope-
fully remission, the whole
family really deserves a
breather."
In the first year, the two-
week program provided for 20
Camp Simcha children. Last
year, 30 youngsters took part,
and this summer, Horowitz
said, the program expects to
host 50 to 60 campers.
Since its inception, Chai
Lifeline had added a variety of
services. One is a tutorial aid
program for homebound and
child's educational level. Major
emphasis is placed on keeping
up the child's level of Jewish
studies.
Another Chai Lifeline
project is a hospice program,
created to help terminally ill
patients and their families
develop a plan of care that best
suits their needs

victims and their families, aa
well as a medical referral and
information service. Meals for
homebound patients and
bereavement groups are two
more programs.
Chai Lifeline has no organi-
zational ties and therefore no
organizational sources of
income. It depends on indi-
vidual and corporate contribu-
tions.

Israel to be
Arab Target
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
- The Arabs are planning a
major diplomatic offensive
against Israel during the
upcoming 43rd session of the
United Nations General
Assembly.
According to diplomatic
sources here, the Arab coun-
tries and the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization will step up
their anti-Israeli rhetoric
during the three-month
session of the annual conclave,
and will press the world body
to pass harsher resolutions
against Israel in view of the
continued unrest in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
Diplomats said that the
number of countries who will
support critical resolutions
against Israel may increase
sharply in the upcoming
assembly, because of the
uprising in the territories that
began Dec. 9.
Israel has been under fire
not only from its arch enemies
hut also from traditional
friends such as the European
countries.
"It is going to be a very
difficult session for Israel, no
doubt," a member of Israel's
mission to the United Nations
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
"We are aware of the fact
that the European countries
are critical of Israel's policies
in the territories, and this is
going to be reflected in their
Sept. 20. Thousands of diplo-
mats and high-ranking offi-
cials, including scores of
heads-of-state and premiers
from all over the world, will
attend the meetings at the
glass palace on the west bank
of Manhattan's East River.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres is expected to head the
Israeli delegation, which will
include in addition to the
five permanent members of
the Israeli mission to the
United Nations eight addi-
tional delegates for the dura-
tion of the assembly.
Ambassador Yohanan Bein
is the acting chief delegate of
Israel, a post he assumed
following the resignation
March 30 of Ambassador
Benjamin Netanyahu, who is
now a candidate on the Likud
list for the next Knesset.
The diplomatic sources
predicted that the distur-
bances in the territories will
intensify with the opening of
the General Assembly session
in New York.
"The PLO knows the impor-
tance of keeping the issue of
the unrest in the territories on
the mind of the international
community, and there is
nothing better to achieve this
goal than increasing the
violence in the territories
while the leaders of the world
are gathered at the UN to
discuss the world's problems,"
one of the sources said.

Fascist Manifesto Remembered
By RUTH E. GRUBER
ROME (JTA) Fifty years
ago, on July 14. 1938. a group
of fascist scientists published a
racist manifesto that became
the official rationale for anti-
Semitism in Italy.
It marked a major step by
Benito Mussolini to align
fascist Italy with Nazi
Germany. The manifesto was
an Italian version of the
Nuremberg Laws.
It affirmed the existence of
biologically superior and
inferior races. The Italians, so
went this myth, were pure
Aryans. Jews, therefore, were
not part of the Italian race
and, by definition, inferior.
At the time, there were
about 50,000 Jews in Italy,
almost completely assimilated.
Their contributions to the
nation, especially in scientific
fields, were far out of propor-
tion to their numbers.
Within months after the
manifesto was published, the
regime promulgated race laws.
Jews were forbidden to inter-
marry with Italians. They
were forbidden to practice
many professions, to serve in
the armed forces or to hold
public office.
Jews were limited in the
amount of property and other
holdings they could own. The>
were forbidden to go to vaca-
tion resorts, employ Aryans,
own radios, publish books or
even to have their names listed
in the telephone directory.
Beginning in December
1938. a long list of scientists
and university professors were
dismissed from their jobs
because they were Jews.
This grim anniversary
occurs at a time when the
Jewish community has warned
of a possible new wave of
anti-Semitism in Italy. This
time, Jews are being made
scapegoats for widespread
displeasure with the way
Israel is dealing with the
Palestinian uprising.
The events in the Middle
East, however, may be no
more than a pretext for those
who harbor anti-Semitic preju-
dices to publicly indulge them.
What caused the explosion
of anti-Semitism in Italy in the
late 1930s?
sure brought to bear by thi
Nazis, or that he wanted to
claim an Aryan dignity for our
people so that the Germans
would not consider us
inferior."
Unleashing a violent
campaign against the Jews
may well have been motivated
by a deep inferiority complex.
But there was no single
turning point.
The manifesto of July 14,
1938, "was consistent with all
that had gone on before. The
seeds were already there," the
newspaper said.
II, the world has wondered
about Wallenberg's fate.
Revered in the West as a hero
of the Holocaust, he was
arrested by the Red Army in
Budapest in 1945, after having
saved tens of thousands of
Jews from deportation to Nazi
death camps.
For 12 years the Soviets
maintained stony silence. Then
they claimed Wallenberg had
died in prison of a heart attack
in 1947, two years after his
arrest.
But numerous reports have
surfaced over the years that he
has been seen alive in Soviet
custody. The Swedish govern-
ment's official position is that
Wallenberg is alive. If so, he
would be 75.
The Soviet authorities,
however, have not budged
since 1957, when they
proclaimed him dead. But with
Gorbachev pledged to open the
"blank pages" in Soviet
history, there seems to be a
chance that Maxwell's appeal
will be treated more seriously
than similar approaches in the
past.
One source of optimism is
the declining political standing
of veteran Politburo member
Andrei Gromyko, the former
Soviet foreign minister, now
president of the USSR.
It was Gromyko who person-
ally announced Wallenberg's
supposed death 31 years ago,
and he has long been regarded
as "the stopper in the bottle"
in this affair.
Should he finally be swept
from high office, a possibility
raised at the recent
Communist Party conference,
the way might open for a
genuine investigation of the
Wallenberg episode.

Women Candidates to Benefit
From Sacrifice Slate
Mubarak Awad:---------------------
No Thoreau or Gandhi
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Herat and Liberal partners in
the Likud bloc reportedly
reached agreement to break a
pledge to one of Likud's
smaller constituencies for so-
called safe spots on their 1968
election slate.
The idea is to free a safe spot
or two for their own members,

Under Israel's election
system, citizens vote for

Parties win a share of Knesset
seats determined by the
percentage of totai votes they

Each party ranks its candi-
dates on a slate, so candidates
at the bottom of the list are
unlikely to get elected.
According to an Israel Radio
report. Likud will demand a
sacrifice from Ometz. a tiny
splinter faction headed by
-mer Finance Minister
Yigael Hurvitz. once a Likud
Liberal.
Hurvitz. a minister without
portfolio in the present coali-
tion government, will not be
asked to relinquish the No. six
spot. But his No. two man.
Zalman Shoval. will be reas-
signed to a slot near the
bottom of the list.
This reportedly was
arranged in a private confer-
ence between David Levy and
Haim Corfu, representing
Herat, the largest component
of Likud, and Moshe Nissam
and Yitzhak Modai. repre-
senting the Liberal faction.
But Shoval, a onetime
Knesset member for the now
defunct Rafi faction and a
longtime close advisor to the
late Moshe Dayan. claimed be
was not told of his demotion on
the party list, and he professed
disbelief.
"Surely they cannot afford
to break their solemn agree-
ment with us." he said.
As the Likud Knesset slate
now stands. Herat will have 31
candidates among the top 45;
the Liberals will have 12; and
Ometz and the Tami faction,
represented by a former reli-
gious affairs minister. Aharon

MacKay on Multi-Issues
Kenneth "Buddy" MacKay.
three-term congressman from
Ocala is the Reubin Askew-
endorsed candidate for
the U.S. Senate seat being
vacated by Lawton Chiles.
His tenured track record in
the Florida House of Repre-
sentatives from 1968 until
1980 was acknowledged when
he was honored seven times by
the Tallahassee press corps as
Florida's "most valuable
member."
On fiscal matters. MacKay
serves as chairman of the
Democratic Budget Group
which he formed in 1982 as a
freshman legislator. He has
continued to work to initiate
other newcomers into the
"closed shop" he found in
Washington.
Beyond learning budgetary
constraints. MacKay earned a
reputation of being represen-
tative of a "national Democrat
from the South."
"I'm not a boll weevil on
social issues," he maintains.
"But Democrats must learn
fiscal discipline and move the
party more toward the center,
center-right on fiscal issues."
The distinction he makes vis
a vis the social agenda has
been noted by the Americans
for Democratic Action. In its
1987 ADA Voting Record,
MacKay received a "64
percent liberal quotient,"
denoting his solid support for
traditional Jewish-agenda
issues.
In specific issues, MacKay
says he is closely aligned with
urban areas. "I have been
accused," he said, "of being a
senator from Dade County."
In that respect, MacKay has
demonstrated his concern for
urban problems with his votes:
for catastrophic health care for
the elderly; for welfare
reform.
On the issue of choice or
abortion rights. MacKay is
aligned with the pro-choice
groups primarily because
"This is a church'state issue
and I believe government
ought not to be involved in it."
An attorney in private life
(estate and probate concentra-
tion), MacKay says he "invo-
luntarily retired from politics"
from 1980 to 1982 when, as an
underdog, he ran for the U.S.
Senate and trailed Dick Stone
and Bill Gunter. While initially
eyeing the gubernatorial race
in 1990 when Gov. Bob
Martinez's term will conclude,
MacKay reconsidered his polit-
ical plans when Askew
dropped out of the senatorial
campaign.
With his record secure in
Washington. MacKay said he
is "really up to speed on
federal issues" and chose
instead to shoot for the world's
most exclusive club. If not
successful, MacKay will revert
back to private life and the
practice of law. This, he says,
"is a make or break
campaign."
Notwithstanding an early
vote to sell arms to Saudia
Arabia as a buffer-defense
against the menace from Iran.
MacKay is a stalwart
supporter of Israel. He is
unequivocal that "I would not
vote that way now." Instead
his focus is on creating a new
"equation that is not now on

Limor Livnat. who also placed
low in the internal elections,
can now expect to be 43 or 44
on the ticket.
But a question mark hangs
over the Hurvitz candidacy,
because he is embroiled in
legal proceedings over the
collapse of companies ran by
his two sons.
The elder Hurvitz guar-
anteed their loans and is now
being sued by the Bank Leumi
for several million dollars.
There is speculation he may
be forced into bankruptcy, in
which case he would withdraw
his candidacy for the Knesset.
The Labor Party, mean-
while, is delighted at the spec-
tacle of Likud breaking its
pledge to one of its consti-
tuents.
Some Laborites may
contemplate the same sort of
breach with respect to the
three men of Ezer Weizman's
Yahad faction, who have been
promised safe seats on the
Labor slate.

Electric Feud Generates Heat
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli politicians feuding with th-
government-owned Israel Electric Corp. are generating mor-
heat than light. Bui the utility, an easy target in an election year
is fighting back.
The latest round was touched off by power outages. A leak\
boiler at the Hadera generating plant forced a temporar.
reduction of wattage.
The politicos seized on this to accuse the IEC of "lack of
foresight," and demanded the resignations of its top manage
ment. They also dredged up a 50-year-old issue, dating from tht
first hydroelectric plant built on the Jordan River by Pinna-
Rutenberg.
It was agreed at the time that employees of what was then tht
Palestine Electric Corp. would receive free power. They still do.
and the politicians accuse them of wasting electricity.
The utility retorts that if the "perk" were revoked, there
would be havoc in a vital industry.
Mandated Married Names
The requirement that married couples in the Federal Republi
use a common family name is not a violation of the Basic Law
according to a decision by the Federal Constitutional court in
Karlsruhe (Baden-Wurttemberg).
The court found that the adoption of a common surname di>i
not violate the individual rights of spouses who had to give ui
their name at marriage. The requirement is appropriate an<:
necessary to "make the togetherness of family members visibl.
outwardly as well." the court declared.

NEW YORK. NY Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of the
best-selling books, "When Bad Things Happen to Good
People" and "When All You've Ever Wanted Isn't
Enough," will be the visiting rabbinic resident at The
Jewish Theological Seminary of America during the 1988-
89 academic year.
As rabbinic resident, Kushner will advise rabbinical
students on the practical aspects of the rabbinate.
Israel Identifies 'Gifted' Children
TEL AVIV (JTA) One percent of all school children in
Israel have been identified as "gifted" and are enrolled in
special classes to make the most of their talents, the
Education Ministry reported.
The youngsters especially proficient in the sciences or
arts were discovered as a result of tests administered by
the Szold Institute, which the Education Ministry commis-
sioned for the purpose.
Aliyah Via The High Seas
TEL AVIV (JTA) Alexander and Luba Berman, a
Soviet Jewish couple who received exit visas, are not
taking the plane or train to Israel. They plan to sail there in
an 18-foot yacht, due to leave Riga, on the Baltic Sea, on or
about July 25. The Bermans plan a leisurely cruise around
the Mediterranean by way of Gibraltar before docking in
Haifa a few months from now.
500 Rabbis Convene In Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) About 500 rabbis and Jewish
community leaders from 30 countries gathered here for a
conference in celebration of Israel's 40th anniversary.
The conference marks the first official visits to Israel by
the chief rabbis of two Communist countries, Hungary and
Yugoslavia, as well as rabbis from Austria, Greece and
Argentina.
Jewish communities in Japan, India and other parts of
the world are also represented.
Dutch Won't Sell Israel Subs
AMSTERDAM (JTA) The Dutch government said it
will not grant export licenses for two submarines Israel
wants to order from the RMD Shipyards in Rotterdam.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the reason is that
Israel is considered a country at war and the Netherlands,
in principle, denies military equipment to countries at war.
Kollek Planned Bastille Day Boycott
JERUSALEM (JTA) Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jeru-
salem and senior Israeli officials were scheduled to boycott
the Bastille Day reception held at the French Consulate
here.
They were protesting the French practice of holding
separate receptions for Jewish and Arab dignitaries on
their national holiday, which a spokesman called "an
apartheid policy by France."

Completes Course
Waldheim Had No Case
By
ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) World
Jewish Congress President
Edgar Bronfman said in a
brief statement that Austrian
President Kurt Waldheim
withdrew his slander suit
against him because of a lack
of evidence.
"It is obvious that Waldheim
dropped the suit because he
has no case,"Bronfman said.
Waldheim had initiated a
lawsuit after Bronfman,
speaking at a WJCongress
meeting in Budapest on May 5,
1987, said that Waldheim was
"part and parcel of the Nazi
killing machine."
Bronfman's statement was
in response to the annouce-
ment made by a Waldheim
spokesman that the Austrian
president had written the
Vienna public prosecutor's
office listing three reasons for
dropping the suit against
Bronfman.
The reasons included what
Waldheim called the U.S.
Justice Department's refusal
to provide legal assistance to
Austrian courts preparing the
case, and his desire "to contri-
bute to calming down and
reconciliation."
The third reason, according
to the letter, was the fact that
an international commission of
historians and private under-
takings including a mock-
trial television special broad-
cast on cable television
"have determined my personal
innocence.
In New York, World Jewish
Congress executive director
Elan Steinberg said that his
organization's findings
continue to "coincide with the
conclusions of the historical
commission, which found that
Waldheim lied consistently
about his past, was unques-
tionably a member of pre-war
Nazi organizations and person-
ally assisted Nazi war crimes."
Waldehim served as an intel-
ligence officer in a unit of the
German army during World
War II that participated in the
transfer of Greek Jews to
concentration and death
camps, and in the execution of
Allied prisoners, among other
war crimes.
NEWPORT. Rhode Island
(JTA) The Maccabi, the first
Israeli yacht to compete in the
28 years of the Singlehanded

Shelter was born in England
and emigrated to Israel in
1971. He joined the Israeli
Merchant Navy and immedi-
ately began training as as
officer. His present position is
chief officer.
Shelter recently completed a
solo 1.800 mile qualifying sail
and also met the criteria set
for the Singlehanded Transat-
lantic Race by its organizers,
the Royal Western Yacht
Club. His acceptance was
considered a major achieve-
ment for Israeli sport.

Hammer to Drill
For Israel's Oil
FEDERAL DISCOUNT PHARMACY
By HUGH OBGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
long search for ofl in Israel will
continue, and for the first
time, it will involve offshore
drilling as well.
Oil magnate Armand
Hammer announced at a news
conference that he had signed
a $25 million deal with Israel's
Energy Ministry and would
begin building Israel's first
offshore drilling rig on a plat-
form some 10 miles off the Tel
Aviv coastline.
The platform, to be operated
by Hammer's Occidental
Petroleum Co.. is expected to
begin operation by the end of
the year.
At a news conference.
Hammer said Occidental's oil
geologists indicate there could
be a billion barrels of oil under
the sea floor in Israeli waters
at a depth of about 17.000 feet.
The offshore well he
proposes to dig will be the
deepest ever in Israel's long
and mostly fruitless search for
oil.
Hammer signed a three-year
contract with the government
giving Occidental exploration
rights on 1,850 square miles
undersea and 4,350 square
miles in the N'egev.
It will cost $25 million of
which the Israel government
will pay 34 percent, according
to Energy Minister Moshe
Shahal.
Hammer, a Russian-born
American Jew, is a frequent
visitor to Israel. He is here
now to celebrate his 90th
birthday and to dedicate
projects funded through his
philanthropy.
Hammer, who says he feels
more like 40 than 90. was to
attend a $10,000 birthday
party here sponsored by the
Tel Aviv Foundation for Arts
and Culture.
He was to lay the conerstone
of a $2 million Jewish-Arab
community center in the run-
down Ajami quarter of Jaffa.
Hammer raised more than
$1.5 million for the project,
which was initiated by the
foundation.
The oil magnate will also
dedicate a new wing of the
Assaf Harofe Hospital near
Saraf in southern Israel.
Hammer, who was trained
as a medical doctor, built his
fortune on the basis of art
treasures he was allowed by
Lenin to take out of the Soviet
Union immediately after the
Bolshevik revolution in 1917.
Lenin's gesture was in appre-
ciation for medical treatment
Hammer provided the revolu-
tionaries.
Since then, he has been on
friendly terms with every
Soviet leader and has played a
major role in many behind-the-
scenes arrangements on behalf
of Soviet Jews.
Hammer visits Moscow
regularly. Referring to his
recent meeting with Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
Hammer said, "It won't be
long before (Premier Yitzhak)
Shamir or (Foreign Minister
Shimon) Peres is received in
Moscow. I am working toward
that end."
But he indicated this would
not happen until after Israel's
elections in November.
Hammer!Begin Meet
Armand Hammer visited for a half-hour with ex-Prime
Minister Menachem Begin at his Jerusalem home. Hammer
is one of the few outsiders whom Begin entertains at his
apartment, which has become his veritable hermitage since
he quit office in 1983.
Hammer told reporters that he urged the former premier
to begin writing his memoirs soon, and that he had found
Begin in good health.
Transplant Centers
Established
By HUGH OBGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Health Ministry has given two
Israeli hospitals permission to
open liver-transplant centers
as soon as possible, while
suspending the certification of
another.
Permission was granted to
the Hadassah University
Hospital in Jerusalem and
Beilinson Hospital in Petach
Tikva, which belongs to Kupat
Holim, the Histadrut health
care agency.
Rambam Hospital in Haifa,
which last yea? became the
first and only hospital in Israel
licensed to perform the deli-
cate surgery, will no longer do
so.
Rambam Hospital shut down
its facility earlier this year
when the head of its liver-
transplant center, American-
trained Dr. Yigal Kam,
returned to the United States.
Kam, regarded as one of the
world's leading liver-
transplant surgeons, will open
a transplant center in Denver,
Colorado. It was on the
strength of his reputation that
Rambam Hospital received its
original certification.
The hospital's license has
been stamped "frozen"
pending the return of Kam.
who has officially taken a
year's leave without pay.
Kam had complained of a
lack of cooperation from other
Israeli hospitals and of the
shortage oi organ donors, in
part due to religious beliefs.
Hadassah and Beilinson
hospitals have promised to
cooperate in their liver-
transplant endeavors. A
computer center is being set
up at Beilinson to register
donors and match their tissues
with potential recipients. It
will be linked to the Hadassah
transplant center.

Rabbis Come Up Short in Counseling
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) A
New York clinical psychologist
believes that most rabbis,
regardless of denomination,
are not sufficiently trained to
provide congregants with
effective family counseling on
marital problems.
Practicing what he preaches,
Dr. Irving Levitz of Wood-
mere, N.Y., led an innovative
workshop recently for
Orthodox rabbis on "The Trou-
bled Marriage: When
Congregants Seek Your
Help."
The workshop was part of a
one-day mini-conference spon-
sored by the alumni of Yeshiva
University's Rabbi Isaac
Elchanan Theological
Seminary.
Levitz, a professor at the
university s Wurzweiler
School of Social Work, prac-
tices psychology privately at
an office in Woodmere. His
wife, Myra, a psychiatric social
Chances Good for
E. German Reparations
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) The chances
are good for a speedy agree-
ment with East Germany to
make available reparations for
Jewish persecutees of the Nazi
era, World Jewish Congress
President Edgar Bronfman
said.
Bronfman spoke in West
Berlin after meeting with
Heinz Galinski, chairman of
the Central Council of Jews in
West Germany. He described
as "historic" what he said was
an East German decision to
pay reparations.
Belated Perspective:
Austrians View
Pope Visit Positively
VIENNA (JTA) The
Austrian Jewish community
considers the visit here by
Pope John Paul II last month
to have been "positive" and as
good as could have been
expected.
That assessment was given
by the president of the Jewish
communities of Austria. Paul
Grosz, in an interview with the
Austrian news agency APA.
The positive evaluation
contrasts sharply with the
reaction of Jews when the
pope visited Austria the last
week of June.
At that time, they expressed
shock and anger over the
Sope s failure to mention
ewish suffering when he
spoke at the site of the
Mauthausen concentration
camp, and his reference to
Austria as a "victim" of
Nazism rather than as the
collaborator it was.
After the pope met with
Jewish community leaders
here on June 24, Grosz and
Austria's chief rabbi. Paul
Eisenbeng, described the
encounter as "disappointing."
But Grosz now told the
Austrian news agency that the
papal visit was seen by the
Jewish community as "extra-
ordinarily positive."
The initial reactions were
somewhat limited, he said,
because the pope did not
answer questions of Jewish
concern directly but rather
"circumspectly."
Bronfman is expected to
meet with East German
Communist Party boss Erich
Honecker later this month to
discuss the issue.
The Communist regime until
now has consistently rejected
reparations payments to Jews
on the grounds that it bears no
responsibility for what
happened to them during the
Nazi era. The East Germans
describe themselves as early
"anti-fascists" who allegedly
resisted the Nazi regime.
Most observers believe the
East Germans' sudden willing-
ness to consider reparations
stems from a desire to win
Jewish good will, especially in
the United States. They seem
to think American Jews exert
enough influence in Wash-
ington to gain for their
country the coveted most-
favored-nation trade status.
Bronfman's discussions with
Galinski also reportedly
touched on the scandal of the
late Werner Nachmann, who.
as chairman of the Central
Council until his death- last
January, allegedly embezzled
millions of dollars provided by
the Bonn government for
reparations to former Jewish
persecutees.
The Nahum Goldmann
Museum of the Jewish Dias-
pora recently marked its 10th
anniversary. The museum
examines the historical roots
of Jewish survival by utilizing
10th Anniversary: Museum of Diaspora
displays produced by artists
and craftsmen and audio-
visual media to present Jewish
life, culture and spiritual
values in various periods and
parts of the world. Though
dealing with history, the infra-
structure of the museum's
permanent exhibit is thematic
and dedicated to the principal
factors of Jewish survival
throughout the history of the
Diaspora.
Temporary exhibits present,
mainly in photographs, the life
and history of the various
Jewish communities around
the world. These pictures
constitute the mainstay of the
museum's computerized photo
archives.
As part of the tenth anniversary celebration of Beth Hatefutsoth,
the Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel
Aviv, Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel, right, was honored as an
honorary fellow. The presentation was made by museum presi-
dent, Arye Dulzin.
The museum's Seminar I'nit
organizes study days and
seminars for students and
young people from the Dias-
pora in more than 10
languages. Visitors can also
use the computer which
contains information on
Jewish communities, the
origin of Jewish family name-
sand the genealogical history
of various Jewish families.
Soon to be completed is the
Abraham and Edita Spiegel
Family Building which will
house a permanent exhibit of
the last 200 years in the life
and history of the Jewish
people in the Diaspora.
worker, works with him in his
private practice.
Levitz told the 40 Orthodox
rabbis at the workshop that
the role of spiritual leaders in
the marriage of congregants
must not start and stop with
their performance at the
wedding ceremony.
The rabbi's role should begin
with pre-marital counseling,
Levitz said, to avoid potential
problems for future
newlyweds.
Levitz who served as a pulpit
rabbi before deciding to
become a practicing psycholo-
gist, told the workshop that a
rabbi must be able to assess a
family problem and determine
the most effective way of
being helpful.
For that role, the rabbi,
"needs to be a good listener,
non-judgmental and know-
ledgeable about the dynamics
of marriage and family life."
Levitz told the 40 rabbis at
the workshop that engaged
couples frequently fail to give
adequate consideration to "the
full spectrum of family life
from finances to family rela-
tions, dual careers, raising of
children and mode of religious
observance."
Theoretically, the rabbi,
sepcially the Orthodox rabbi, is
in "an ideal position to be
helpful," Levitz said. "He
usually is a good friend of both
the bride and the bridegroom
and their families. He is not a
stranger to them."
Thus, the rabbi can raise
many of the issues with the
twosome, "senstively
engaging the couple in an
insightful dialogue.'
Levitz explained that the
idea for the workshop emerged
after university officials real-
ized that candidates emerge
from the rabbinic seminary
"thoroughly trained in Jewish
law but lacking adequate
training for family coun-
seling."
Following his many years in
clinical practice and his
previous experience as a pulpit
rabbi, Levitz came to the
conclusion that rabbis/'need to
be brought up to date about
current knowledge which we
now have about the family."
Furthermore, he said, rabbis
need to be sensitized to the
different ways congregants
indicate their need for help.
Many rabbis cannot assist in
some problem areas because
they do not receive appro-
priate training. Specifically,
Levitz said, "there are no
formally structured classes at
RIETS (the rabbinic seminary)
to prepare rabbinical students
to preform such services as
rabbis."
One approach Levitz advo-
cates to prevent problems
from arising "is a requirement
that couples planning
marriage pledge to participate
in effective programs of pre-
marital counseling."
Premarital counseling
requires that the rabbi not only
be sufficiently trained to iden-
tify potential problems, but
also to know equally well his
limitations as a counselor.
The discussion was a real-
istic one, Levitz said, because
the participating rabbis "know
what I know they did not get in
their rabinnical training."

In 1985. Bentsen was one of
a group of senators who unsuc-
cessfully urged President
Reagan not to visit the mili-
tary cemetery in Bitburg.
West Germany, where
members of the Waff en SS are
among those buried.
Perhaps Bentsen's most
controversial vote, as far as
the Jewish community is
concerned, came in June 1986.
when he voted to uphold
Reagan's veto of a joint
congressional resolution
rejecting a weapons sale to the
Saudis.
The Senate failed to override
the veto by one vote, and the
sale went ahead. Bentsen wu
the only Democrat to switch
his vote.
In 1984. he opposed the sale
of Stinger missiles to Jordan
and Saudi Arabia, and in 1985.
he co-sponsored the resolution
to deny advanced weapons to
Jordan until it begins peace
negotiations with Israel.
But in 1987. he was not one
of the 68 senators who signed
a letter opposing the sale of
1.600 Maverick missiles to the
Saudis, which eventually
caused Reagan to remove the
missile from the arms
package.
Most recently, he was not
among the 21 senators who
signed a letter, initiated this
month by Sen. Dennis DeCon-
cini (D-Ariz.), urging the
administration not to submit a

Old City to Get
New City Hall
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
new $65 million city hall will be
constructed in Jerusalem,
uniting under one roof all the
departments of the munici-
pality, which are now
dispersed around the city.
Part of the project's funding
will be provided by the Reich-
mann family of Toronto,
billionaire financiers who are
the developers of the Battery
Park project in Manhattan.
Two members of the Reich-
mann family, Albert and
Edward, joined President
Chaim Herzog and Mayor
Teddy Kollek in laying the
foundation stone for the new
city hall, the Reichmanns' first
major undertaking in Israel.
The new municipal building,
together with another major
venture being financed by a
Diaspora Jew the recently
announced Mamilla Project, to
be built by Ladbrokes-Hilton
executive Cyril Stein of
Britain will mean a total
reshaping of a substantial part
of the pre-1967 border area of

On domestic issues, Bentsen
voted for a constitutional
amendment that would have
permitted prayer in the public
schools. He has supported
women's right to choose to
have abortions, voting against
an amendment that would
have forbidden the District of
Columbia to use district or
federal funds to pay for abor-
tions.
"Lloyd Bentsen's long
congressional career indicates
considerable understanding
and sympathy for many issues
of particular interest to the
Jewish community the U.S.-
Israel relationship, Soviet
Jewry, the genocide treaty,"
said David Harris, Washington
representative of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee.
"While there may be some
concern about some of Sen.
Bentsen's votes with respect
to arms sales to Arab countries
that remain technically at war
with Israel, overall we view
him as a friend with whom we
have enjoyed a close working
relationship."
David Brody, Washington
representation of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. observed that Bentsen
has been a strong supporter of
Israel and has had good rela-
tions with the Jewish
community in Texas.
He said the senator stressed
in a recent letter to consti-
tuents that by supporting
Israel, the United States
"advances the cause of peace
in the Middle East."
Brody said Bentsen also has
emphasized the need to take
strong measures against
terrorism. And the senator has
pushed for an energy policy to
lessen dependence on Middle
East oil.

American Journalists Defend Coverage
4 k
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA)
Joseph Lelyveld, foreign
editor of The New York Times,
was groping for an analogy to
defend his paper's coverage of
events in Israel.
In Bangladesh, for example,
^ is not uncommon for a ferry
to sink, with a consequent
ivy loss of life. Such a
mishap is only reported cursor-
ilyouily in The New York
On the other hand, Lelyveld
aid, last fall a ferry sank in
English Channel and many
pie died, although many
than the usual toll who die
such ferry mishaps in Bang-
ui esh. For the West it was an
iiu'ommon event.
"And we covered it as if it
were a plane flying into the
Empire State Building," Lely-
veld said.
Lelyveld was part of a panel
f prominent print and televi-
-ion journalists who gathered
ist month at the American
wish Congress to discuss
nd defend their media's
i] proach to reporting on the
Palestinian uprising in Israel.
In controlled and carefully
thought-out words, the panel
l.olvveld; James Walker,
respondent for ABC-TV's
"Nightline"; Tim Russsert, a
producer and vice president of
NBC News; and Eric Breindel,
editorial page editor of The
v York Post tried to
i \plain their own, as well as
their media's attempts, to
: -''sent unbiased and balanced
verage of the intifada, or
Arab uprising.
^Ji. (though admittedly
wandering a little bit from
e West Bank," Lelyveld
contended that uncommon
occurences in unexpected
places, in regions of interest to
the paper's readers, dictate
a paper's policy.
"To argue that we should be
giving less space, or a propor-
tional amount of space to
Israel as Sri Lanka, just
doesn't make much sense for a
newspaper published in New
York, whose readers are, in
the main, much more
concerned about what happens
in Israel than what happens in
south Asia, and in a country
where American policy is
much more closely involved in
what happens in the Middle
East than what happens in
south Asia."
Lelyveld said that he person-
ally spends an "amazing
amount of time" writing
letters of response to irate
readers whose specific ques-
tions make it impossible to
send form letters.
Lelyveld a New York
native whose father, Rabbi
Arthur Lelyveld, was presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Congress conceded that
"yes, we do tend to magnify it
out of proportion, and I guess
we do it shamelessly."
But he reminded the audi-
ence that the process of
focusing on Israel went two
ways.
"A lot of complaints, I think,
are complaints that were
never made when the news
from Israel was very good,"
Lelyveld said. "Nobody has
ever asked us to defend, as I
recall, why we give five times
as much coverage to Israel as
we do to Nigeria or to Indone-
sia or Pakistan, countries with
hundreds of more people."
Regarding the process of
television journalism, Walker
explained the complicated
machinations of setting up the
week-long "Nightline in the
Holy Land" series of broad-
casts.
_ That programming, he said,
for which they sought to
achieve balance, was fraught
with problems, which were
apparent from their second
day their in April. Even the
timing, said Walker, was off.
"It would have been better to
have gone in February,"
because both sides were not
yet so divided.
By the time of the broadcast,
however, Walker said that
vacillations were about all they
could depend on. with Israel
Television planning to carry
the program, then not;
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
intending to participate, then
not; Palestinians offering to
participate or be audience
members, then withdrawing.
Walker said a bus was sent to
Gaza to bring back about 300
Palestinians to be in the audi-
ence. The bus, guarded by
Israeli troops, returned with
one passenger.
Walker, who interviewed a
Palestinian man who said his
family had been forced in 1948
to flee their ancestrial home,
said he checked and double-
checked the story of the man,
who spontaneously unearthed
a long-hidden well he knew
from childhood.
He said it was particularly
difficult talking to pregnant
women who were tear-gassed
and who were "miscarrying
right and left."
Moreover, he added, are the
problems of covering a war.
"As a correspondent, you're
always trying to dodge being
shot at."
Walker said he came away
from the Israeli-Palestinian
problem "feeling that the situ-
ation was hopeless."
Breindels's argument was
that the media's coverage is
fair. "I don't think the Amer-
ican media has been biased
against Israel," he said, "I
think that Israel pays the price
for being a democracy."
He cited how the Israeli
government press office trans-
lates all its news, the good and
the bad, into four languages
daily for worldwide consump-
tion; how it conducts tours of
the West Bank and Gaza, and
how army personnel grant
interviews.
Russert spoke of viewer
response to terrorist incidents,
and the surprises they found.
He said people rejected the
philosophies of the terrorists
when they were able to see
them for themselves.
He spoke of the TWA
hijacking in which Navy diver

Perceptions Vary;
As Does Perspective
Anti-Israel Bias and Reportage
t
By MORRIS J. AMITAY
Despite the usually
thoughtful expressions of
Secretary of State George
SchultS, his State Department
at lower levels still demon-
strates its long-standing anti-
Israel bias in a number of
ways. Most recently this took
the form of gratuitous public
advice given to Israel on how
to deal internally with the
matters of arson and illegal
aliens. These are surely
"Tsbjects about which our own
government would probably
regard as internal. But no
matter when it comes to
Israel, there seems to be few
activities not subject to the
scrutiny and criticism of the
State Department spokesmen.
First, there were the well
publicized appeals to Israel
and subsequent "deploring" of
its deportation to the United
States of Mubarak Awad.
Without even debating
whether he was in fact advo-
cating non-violent or violent
unlawful actions against
Israel, Awad, a U.S. citizen,
had long overstayed the dura
'ion of his temporary visa for
Israel. Every nation retains
the right to send illegal resi-
dents back to the country from
which they came and in which
they are citizens. Why the
White House and State
Department felt constrained
to apply a different standard
to Israel is disturbing, particu-
larly when this "visitor" was
urging others to commit, at
the very least, acts of civil
disobedience. By way of juxta-
position, where was the State
Department's single word of
criticism when 27,000 (twenty-
seven thousand) expatriates
were deported from Kuwait in
1986?
More recently, with Israel's
precious few forests set ablaze
by Arab arsonists, State
Department spokesman,
Charles Redman, felt
constrained to tell Israel that
the maintenance of law and
order requires "proper
training" referring to Israel's
"shoot on sight' policy in
dealing with these arsonists.
Perhaps next time Redman
will suggest that Israel rely on
"Smokey the Bear" to prevent
forest fires.
Our "chutzpah of the
month" award goes not to the
State Department but, not
surprisingly, to the Wash-
ington Post. On the very same
Saturday in June when The
New York Times front page
featured a demonstration by
thousands of Armenians in the
Soviet Union, accompanied by
a photograph the Post's front
page, neglecting this startling
development entirely, instead
had a two column story,
complete with photograph,
headlined "Israel's War on
Vegetables."
No this was not an April
Fool's issue. Not content with
its usual exaggerated reports
of Israeli "violence" against
innocent (rock and firebomb
throwing) civilians the Post
opened an entirely new assault
on Israel. At first blush, it
appeared that Israeli author-
ities were now committing
herbicide against innocent
tomatoes and zucchinis and
no less than twenty-one other
fruits and vegetables actually
mentioned in the story. Even
upon closer examination, the
article's yield of news was
sparse indeed. Essentially, the
story was that a Palestinian
Arab was brought in for ques-
tioning regarding a new busi-
ness he had set up selling
agricultural supplies the
inference being that Israel was
stifling Palestinian agricul-
tural autonomy. He was not
held overnight, nor were there
any allegations by anyone of
brutality or violence directed
against him or his colleagues.
Yet there was the Post
reporter's account of Israeli
soldiers "storming" his house
and "hauling" him off to jail
while his wife and children
looked on "in horror." While it
is difficult to understand how
this episode could have been so
vividly described by someone
who wasn't there, it is under-
standable given the Post's
anti-Israel slant on its
reporting from Israel, as well
as its editorial policy.
While thousands demon-
strating in Russia apparently
were not considered as news-
worthy by the Post's editors,
Israeli "okra-busters" rated
front page news. Perhaps
Washington Post readers
would be better off getting
their news on the Middle East
from the Old Farmer's
Almanac.
By JEFF RUBIN
Unified American Jewish
support for an alliance
between the United States and
Israel has helped
influence U.S. foreign policy,
according to S. Robert Lichter,
a communications analyst and
fellow at the American Enter-
prise Institute (AEI). "The
most troubling element of the
[recent] public opinion polls
may not be the wavering of the
general public's feelings on
certain elements of support for
the Israelis [such as a majority
favoring direct negotiations
between Israel and the PLO]
but the split now emerging in
the American Jewish
community...."
If that split widened it could
have a political result, said
Samuel Lewis, U.S. Ambas-
sador to Israel from 1977 to
1985 and now president of the
U.S. Institute of Peace. Lewis,
Lichter, and Jeane Kirkpa-
trick, former U.S. Ambas-
sador to the U.N. and an AEI
senior fellow, were among the
participants in a recent AEI
panel on Israel and America.
News coverage of the Pales-
tinian Arab uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip hits
American Jews and non-Jews
differently, said Lewis. "My
hunch is that most Americans
who either are not Jewish or
intimately involved with Israel
as we are hardly know the
difference" between the
uprising and riots in the Phi-
lippines, South Korea or else-
where
"It's a big world out there
with a lot of nasty people
doing nasty things to each
other and it doesn't have much
effect on your basic view of
Israel. Israel is an ally, it's a
democracywe don't know
much about it but as long as
Reagan thinks it's a good thing
it probably is. So I think
there's a little bit too much
anguish in the Jewish
community about the impact
on America as a whole of these
events."
But that does not contradict
Lichter's view, Lewis added,
because "in the long run if the
American Jewish world
becomes divided and sharply
weakened in its support over
Israel's behavior, then the
American political world will
begin to follow suit."
Kirkpatrick worried that
"the question of whether
Israel has a legitimate claim to
the land on which it exists has
entered the public discussion
?iuietly...in a way it had not
ive years ago."
Not only at the U.N. and in
the Arab world is there an
explicit denial of Israel's right
to exist, but beyond that, "we
see the denial of Israel's exist-
ence," Kirkpatrick main-
tained. "And the question of
the existence of Israel...has
slowly become attached to the
rights and wrongs of the
Israeli-Palestinian fight.
"When we hear reports of
PLO meetings...or of Pales-
tinian demands for 'Palestine,'
accompanied by questions
from some outsider about
what is Palestineis it the
West Bank and Gaza or where
are the boundariesthere is
never an answer to the ques-
tion..."
Slowly, almost indiscrimin-
ately, as that question enters
the discussion, so does the
nearly subliminal question,
"what is Israel?" said Kirkpa-
trick.
This helps explain why
reports out of the U.N. and
elsewhere give cross-border
attacks on Israel little atten-
tion, but treat Israeli retalia-
tion as if it were a matter of
international consequence, she
said. If Israel's legitimacy is at
issue, so is its right to defend
itself.
Two other factors, the "mili-
tarily curious" doctrine of
proportionate response and
the tendency of Americans,
"particularly in liberal political
culture, to assume that attacks
by anyone on the status quo
have a kind of moral
standing...[are] dangerous to
Israel's well-being and
survival," Kirkpatrick said.
She does not see a solution
to the conflict, and fears that a
continuation of the uprising
and Israel's responsecould
erode that country's standing,
especially because of Ameri-
cans' difficulty in accepting a
problem without a solution.
Lichter suggested that news
coverage of the uprising would
not prove to be the Arab-
Israeli equivalent of the 1968
Tet offensive in Viet Nam.
Then a concentrated period of
intense and negative news
media coverage did produce a
massive opinion change.
Insteadbarring a major
disasterreportage on the
uprising could leave basic
support of Israel little changed
while contributing simultane-
ously to increased but "com-
partmentalized" sympathy for
the Palestinian Arabs.

Enlistees in Israel Volunteer Corps

By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewiak Floridian Staff Writer
ESTHER and Len Wolfer
of Coral Springs have a strong
feeling for Israel.
Some people, they say, apply
that feeling to their check-
books. Others visit Israel via
tour guides and luxury hotels.
Some join archeological digs.
Esther and Len Wolfer
joined a growing movement of
Diaspora Jewry which is
lending its collective hand to
Israel, working on kibbutzim,
helping out on army bases,
hospitals or wherever volun-
teer services are needed. The
Wolfers spent their summer
with about 300 other Ameri-
cans in the Volunteers-for-
Israel program. Thirty-three
South Floridians joined the
venture.
Still, Esther Wolfer, left
most friends and neighbors in
Coral Springs, where she
assists her husband in his auto-
motive electric air-
conditioning wholesale
company.
"I'm sorry to say that our
contemporaries are not this
Jewishfy aware to give up
services of themselves," says
Esther, born and raised on
Miami Beach as Esther Mazor.
"They give checks. But to give
of their own self is something
else, to think of saying,
Instead of going on vacation
to Italy or the Caribbean, let's
go to Israel.' They should show
support, which Israel desper-
ately needs at this time
because tourism is very low."
THE Wolfers were assigned
to Kibbutz Beit Alfa, located in
the Jezreel Valley.
Len "nobody calls me
Fanner John" Wolfer, helped
in the chicken coop, planted
red grapefruit trees and filled
honey jars.
"It wasn't a rest vacation,"
said Len, "but I don't know
when I've had a more enjoy-
able vacation. Esther and I
have gone away skiing and to
the islands to relax. We've
gone away sightseeing, but
what we brought back were
books or pictures of buildings.
We now have friends that we
can communicate with and I
think that's more."
Esther got involved with the
Volunteers-for-Israel program
soon after it was established in
1982. War had broken out in
Lebanon and Israeli emissaries
came to the United States
seeking volunteers to aid with
non-combat duties on army
bases and kibbutzim. "There
were soldiers who were
needed on the front so that's
when people went to the bases
to help out," she recalls.
NEITHER come from a
family of Zionists, Esther says.
But they have been involved in
the Jewish community in
Broward County. Esther is
vice president of education for
Women's Division, Fort Laud-
erdale Federation-UJA. Len is
on the board of Jewish
Community Center of Fort
Lauderdale. They say their
interest in Israel has grown
steadily since their first visit in
1976.
Two to three times a month,
the volunteer program sends
U.S. recruits to Israel, usually
in groups of between 15 and
20. But for the June 19 trip,
called Unity II (Unity I was in
March), prices were greatly
reduced and 300 Americans
went on the mission.
"Particularly since
December, the publicity has
been negative on Israel and we
wanted to show there's no
reason to be afraid to go to the
country," says Esther.
THEY worked from Sunday
until Friday afternoon. The
trip included living arrange-
ments and three meals a day
They ate and worked and soci
alized with the regular kibbutz
niks. "Best fruits and vege
tables I've ever tasted,'
Esther said of the food.
Their daughter, Beverly, a
student at George Washington
University, stayed on in Israel
to take a two-month Ulpan
course at Hebrew University,
where she will intensively
study the Hebrew language.
Stuart, their 17-year-old son,
who will enter his senior year
at J.P. Taravella High School
in Coral Springs, wasn't home
either to talk about his experi-
ence this summer on Kibbutz
Kfar-Blum, located in the
northern part of Israel near
Kiryat-Shmoena. Stuart went
to Laredo, Texas, to join other
youths on the American
Jewish Society project doing
construction work for disad-
vantaged communities.
LEN, a graduate of North
Miami Senior High, also got a
chance to do some scuba diving
in Eilat on their day off.
"Better than anywhere I've
been," he says.
The Senior Victim's Advocate
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jeu-uh Florxdxan Staff Writer
Dorothy Ascher is a victim's
advocate.
The people Ascher helps are
senior citizens victimized by
crime. Ascher empathizes and
assists and eases the feelings
of violation.
Ascher is 87-years-old, a
widow, and lives in a single
room in mid-Miami Beach.
She works because she loves
people. But the job keeps her
going. It also helps boost her
social security checks to make
ends meet. Never a driver, she
spends $25 a month on bus
tokens from the paycheck
she receives as a part-time
employee of the Senior Crime
Watch and Victims Assistance
Program, an arm of Jewish
, Family Service.
Ascher's employer says she
offers that "extra beyond-the-
phone-call caring. Because of
that, she was recently the first
recipient of the Jewish Family
Service's Ruth Gross Award
for Outstanding Service.
"I was thoroughly embar-
rassed and terribly surprised,"
Ascher said about the award, a
plaque. "I do not like publicity
and I don't think I deserve it. I
Dorothy Ascher
feel I owe something to my
work, not that my work owes
something to me. I don't think
there's a happier woman in
Miami than 1 am."
Part of Ascher's work is to
review police reports of crimes
against senior citizens. Ascher
writes the victims letters
alerting them to the services
her program offers. Often she
goes a step farther.
"I have a little old lady who
lives in a little apartment in
South Beach," Ascher says.
"And just as she was opening
the door of her apartment, she
was mugged. Her handbag
was taken and she was thrown
to the street."
The woman told Ascher she
Summer Catch:
Band Bares its (Filet of) Soul
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewiik Floridian Staff Writer
FOUR boyhood friends from
Miami Beach combined
musical talents this summer
and one month after they were
formed got their first "gig,"
gremiering at the Wet Paint
afe on Lincoln Road last
weekend.
By day, Jordan Lash, 20,
works at a Bal Harbour Shops
restaurant, busing tables to
earn money for college. But at
night, he is living his dream as
drummer for Filet of Soul.
The name of their band came
about as suddenly as the deci-
sion to become a rock quartet.
Lash was talking to lead
guitarist Sean Edelson and
told him he'd like to have the
word "soul" in the name.
Edelson said, "You don't
mean like Filet of Sole? And
we started cracking up. And
that was it," Lash recalls.
The band is rounded out by
bass guitar player Matt
Cougan and Israeli-born
Emanuel Mayer on rhythm
guitar and lead vocals.
FOR this weekend they have
their second gig lined up at
The High Volt at the Grove
Cinema.
"I'm psyched. I'm ready. I'm
excited. Should be great. It's
going to be a great show. I
know it," said Edelson.
The four youths all
graduated from Miami Beach
Senior High School, where
most of them played in the
school's popular rock
ensemble. Lash and Edelson
are both attending the Berklee
College of Music in Boston.
Mayer, 21, is studying
mechanical engineering at the
University of Florida. But they
all have visions of musical
stardom. And if they're not
stars, that's OK too.
"I don't have to be a star. I
just want to play guitar,"
Edelson exclaims.
EDELSON took business
courses at Florida State
University for a few years
before transferring to the
music school, although his
business skills helped this
summer as he pounded the
pavement with tapes of Filet
of Soul to arrange perform-
ances.
"There's a good chemistry
between the guys," says
Mayer. "We're productive
with our time. We don't
argue." What they do is prac-
tice six hours daily.
On stage the group plays
some original music mixed
with hits from the 60s and 70s
anything from the Beatles
to the Grateful Dead.
The group's style differs
from the heavy metal sound
popular with youth today,
Edelson says. "They're all into
hard rock. I'm pretty much
blues-oriented."
LIKE Edelson, Lash also
wants to become a profes-
sional musician. That is
opposed to being just a
drummer. "A drummer just
sounds like I play the drums,"
Lash explains. "A musician is
a part of music as a whole."
Being in a rock and roll band
"wouldn't be bad," Lash says.
"But my aspiration is to be a
jazz drummer. Jazz is more of
a dynamic well-thought music.
I think it takes a little more as
a musician to play jazz. Don't
get me wrong, he adds. "Led
Zeppelin is one of my favorite
groups. But jazz to me is a
little more creative."
LASH has only been playing
the drums for four years.
Before that, he says, he would
sit in class and "air drum,"
that is, mimic songs of drum-
mers. "And finally I told my
folks that I'd really like a drum
set." Done. "The rest is
history," he says.
didn't have any food left in the
house and was frightened to go
out by herself. Ascher visited
the woman and found her
refrigerator was indeed
empty. She convinced the
woman to go to the store.
"So she put on her shawl and
I walked with her to Wash-
ington Avenue and we got all
the things she wanted. And all
the way there and all the way
back, I talked with her. I told
her she must not be scared.
She shouldn't carry a purse.
She should pin her keys to her
bra strap, her money to the
other side. And when we got
home she put her arms around
my neck and she kissed me and
she said, 'God bless you. I'm

not going to be afraid
anymore.''
A housewife until she
became a widow 23 years ago,
Ascher worked a number of
jobs, including 10 years with
the U.S. Census Bureau and as
a surveyor for Gallup Poll.
When she came originally
to Miami she found work with
the various branches of Jewish
Community Centers. Ascher
worked with senior citizens,
offering a conversation, caring
and a card game.
Just as young professionals
are wooed by competitive
corporations, Ascher's dedica-
tion made her a desireable
employee. She was asked to
become a part-time worker for
the Crime Watch and Assis-
tance Program, soon after it
started in 1981.
Ascher is the oldest of 18
senior citizens employed by
the program. They make about
$5 an hour.
"I think the program is
unique because it's using
seniors to help seniors," said
Doug Mayer, 36, the
program's director. Mayer has
found himself in battle several
times to secure money for the
program, which he says is
unique in the services it offers
to senior citizens.
I ne program receives about
$200,000 annually from six
different grants and is non-
sectarian. Mayer's most recent
battle ended in victory when
he convinced the Miami Beach
City Commission not to cut
$5,000 from it's $20,000 alloca-
tion to the program. "But I
ally needed, at minimum,
.other $5,000," he sighs.
Another grant of $50,000
provided by the federal Justice
Assistance Act is going to be
cut off after September, and
Mayer fears that he reluc-
tantly may have to release
about three or four of his
senior employees.
"One of the reasons it's an
important program," Mayer
says, "is it provides employ-
ment for older people. Most of
them need it just to have a job,
a place to go to feel like they're
needed and contributing to
society. It's one of the things
that keeps Dorothy Ascher, at
87, sharp. There aren't many
people at her age who are that
vital. I believe the reason is
she's kept active through her
employment."
The program serves about
3,000 to 4,000 clients a year. It
offers crime prevention
programs, sponsoring police
officers who will address a
condo group, church, syna-
gogue or social club, and
provides counseling for crime
victims.
Clients are over the age of
60 and those who fall within
low-to-moderate financial
income guidelines are eligible
to receive free installation of
dead bolt locks, screens,
smoke detectors and door-
viewing holes.
The program restores some
peace of mind to the elderly
who have been burglarized"
says Mayer. Once they have
had a break-in their last
bastion of security and safety
has been violated, Mayer says.
For budget-tight programs
such as the crime prevention
program, Ascher offers even
more than her scheduled paid-
for employment.
"I don't count hours or
time." says Ascher. "When
people want or need me, I go."
A report on the 1988 session of the Florida state
legislature, presentations by bidders on the develop-
ment by the private sector of the old police station site
and an update by Florida Power and Light Company are
on the agenda of the Miami Beach Chamber of
Commerce's monthly meeting Thursday, July 28, noon,
at the Alexander Hotel.
Chamber president Stuart Blumberg said that Sen.
Jack Gordon (D.-Miami Beach), who has been honored
twice as the Chamber's "Man of the Year," will
summarize successful" legislation affecting Miami
Beach and its surrounding communities.
The 61-piece Ramat Gan Teenage Student Band performs "Stars and Stripes Forever" under thr
baton of Miami Beach Mayor Alex Daoud, a frequent visitor to Ramat Gan. The group performed
at the Colony Theater as part of their visit to the Beach, official sister-cityof Ramat Gan. Earlier
the students and their conductor, school superintendent and other officials were guests at a
Sabbath morning service at Temple Emanu-El.
Podiatric Awards
The Florida Podiatric
Medical Association recently
honored Dr. Sheldon Willens
and Dr. Richard A. Strauss at

tees of the American Podiatric

At the convention, Willens

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "Beyond the Jordan, in the land ofMoab, took Moses upon him
to expound this law"
(Deut. 1.5).
DEVARIM
DEVARIM The first few verses introduce the entire book of
Deuteronomy, which contains Moses' address to the Israelites in
Transjordan after the defeat of the Amorites and Bashan. In this
speech Moses summarizes the Torah as a whole. He reviews the
causes that had led him to appoint judges and officials: "How can
1 myself alone bear your cumbrance. and your burden, and your
strife? And I charged your judges at that time, saying. 'Hear
the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between
a man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. Ye shall
not respect persons in judgment; ye shall hear the small and the
great alike' (Deuteronomy l.lt-17).
Moses goes on to review the incident of the scouts sent to spy on
Canaan, and the consequences of their pessimistic report. He
reminds the Israelites how they had skirted Edom, Ammon, and
Moab; and mentions the peoples who had formerly inhabited
those regions. Finally, he recounts the story of the conquest of
Transjordan, and the partition of the area between the tribes of
Reuben, Gad, and half of the tribe of Manasseh.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law Is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamlr, published by Shengold. The volume is available
at 75 Maiden Lane, New York, NY. 10038.)

Library to Use
* Liberty' Name
By LEON COHEN
MILWAUKEE (JTA) -
I lespite weeks of protest by
i Jews and non-Jews alike.
new public library being
planned for the village of
Grafton, Wis.. will be named
after the I'.S.S. Liberty.
The Grafton Library Board
Oil Junt' 80 to accept
i 'nations for the construction
if the library which stipulate
thai it l>e named after the U.S.
surveillance ship that
was attacked by Israel during
the 1967 Six-Day War.
Israel called the attack an
iccident, apologized and paid
reparations.
Veterans of the ship have
charged the attack was delib-
erate. The charge has been
accepted by a number of anti-
Semitic and anti-Israel organi-
zations, who use it to discredit
Israel and attack U.S. support
of Israel.
Demanding the name as a
^condition of their donations
were brothers Benjamin and
Theodore Grob, local industri-
alists who donated $400,000,
and the Kapco Co., a Grafton
manufacturing firm that
donated $5,000.
Supporters of the name,
including village president
James Grant, have said the

Area Deaths
William D. Singer
William D. Singer, 87,
founder of one of the earliest
burger chains, Royal Castle,
and a former president and
campaign chairman of the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion, died on July 13 at Mount
Sinai Medical Center, where
he was a founding member.
Singer opened his first Royal
Castle in Miami in 1938. When
he sold the chain, 31 years
later, there were 175 Royal
Castles in three states.
Holder of a Miami Herald
Spirit of Excellence Award as
an outstanding community
leader, Singer was a member
of a group of businessmen who
wrote the Metro-Dade charter
in 1957.
He was founding chairman
later named chairman in
perpetuity of the Public
Health Trust, the governing
body of Jackson Memorial
Hospital and the University of
Miami Medical Center. The
trust enabled the then-
financially unstable Jackson
Memorial Hospital to seek
funding from sources other
than the county.
From 1957 to 1960, as a
member of the Florida Road
Board, he fought for the local
expressway system. During
his tenure more roads were
built in his district, South
Florida, than in the entire
state, including the Julia
Tuttle Causeway, the Henry
Kinnev tunnel in Fort Lauder-
dale, and the Palmetto
Expressway.
Singer was one of the 17
signers of the articles of incor-
poration for and a Life Trustee
of Mount Sinai Medical
Center.
His charitable and civic
activities also included chair-
manship of the United Fund,
forerunner of the United Way;
presidency of Temple Israel of
Greater Miami; and member-
ship on the Judicial Council of
Florida and the Council of 100.
Singer is survived by his
wife of 25 years, Ida (nee
Beck). Previously he was
married to Esther (nee Gold-
berg) for 41 years until her
death in 1963. They had three
children: son Lawrence, who
lives in Miami with his wife
Harriet; and daughters
Dorothy Jacobs, who with her
husband, Marvin, lives in New
Orleans, and Marlene Stone,
who resides in Washington,
D.C. with her husband,
Senator Richard Stone. He is
also survived by stepdaughter,
Judy Beck Gardiner and
stepson Jeffrey Beck, both
New York City; brother, Peter
of Miami; sisters, Marion Gold-
stein of Hollywood and Pearl
Olkes of Coral Gables; nine
grandchildren and 11 great-
grandchildren.
Services were held at
Temple Israel with burial at
Graceland Cemetery.

killed. That murder, the only
one of the incident, was
carried out away from the
cameras, disproving the accu-
sation that the cameras incite
the violence, he said.
Russert addressed himself to
the controversy over NBC
correspondent Martin
Fletcher's reporting that
Israeli government officials
had authorized the murder of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization's number two
man, Abu Jihad.
Fletcher's admission that he
got the information from a
government source was
perfectly understandable, said
Russert. "Everybody in this
room knows there is a divided
government in Israel."
Prosecutor's Nazi Theme
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) The public
prosecutor in Trier, who made
a habit of singing the Nazi
"Horst Weasel Lied" in local
restaurants, has been given
low-profile assignments out of
the public eye.
But Heinz Galinski,
chairman of the Central
Council of Jews in Wesi
Germany, has demanded to
know why it was decided not
to take legal action against
him for violating laws banning
Nazi propaganda.
Galinski has protested to
Hans Seeliger, state prose-
cutor for Rhineland-
Palatinate. Seeliger said there
were no grounds to prosecute,
because his Trier eollaajj
sang at "closed" gathering
not in public.
The matter was brought d
light by the news media, whjJ
observed that the prosecutor/
an employee of the JustiJ
Ministry, was singing one
the most noxious song* of
Nazi era.
Horst Wessel was a Brow
Shirt thug killed in a stre
brawl. Tne Nazis made a
martyr of him. The song that
bears his name has a lyric that
calls for spilling Jewish Mood.

U.S. to Resume
Issuing Soviet Visas
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) The U.S. Embassy in Moscow will
resume processing visas for Jews and other refugees leaving the
USSR, but is requiring most of them to obtain private funding if
they wish to leave before Oct. 1.
State Department figures show that 3,400 Soviet citizens had
begun applying for permission to immigrate to the United States
when the embassy stopped issuing visas July 8. The private
funding requirement will be waived for the 400 refugees in the
most difficult circumstances.
The embassy had announced July 8 that it no longer had
sufficient funds to continue the refugee program, mainly
because of a surge of visa requests from Armenians.
Under a budget agreement with Congress, the State Depart-
ment could not seek any new funds until Oct. 1, the start of the
1989 fiscal year.
But last week, members of Congress wrote President Reagan
protesting the embassy's decision to stop issuing visas. They
argued that the move "sends a terrible signal to those seeking
freedom all over the world and could give the Soviets the
opportunity to claim that it is America, and not the Soviet
Union, that is impeding emigration."
Jewish organizations have also protested the embassy's
decision.
To defuse the crisis, the State Department agreed late last
week to transfer $500,000 to Moscow from its $119.5 million
worldwide refugee budget for fiscal year 1988.
The embassy plans immediate processing for 400 Soviets who
are in "emergency" situations: those who have received permis-
sion to leave, sold their homes and left their jobs.
The embassy said it would seek the "timely departure" of an
estimated 3,000 others seeking to leave on U.S. visas, but it
would not specify a timetable.
About 150 Jews have'left the Soviet Union on U.S. visas so far
this year. Last year, 84 Soviet Jews left the Soviet Union on U.S.
visas, while 28 left in 1986, Phil Saperia, H1AS assistant
executive vice president, said. HIAS assists virtually all Soviet
Jews entering this country.

In-Depth Look at the Texan
In the Boston-Austin Connection
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D.-
Texas), whom Massachusetts
Gov. Michael Dukakis named
as his vice presidential running
mate, is considered to have
been largely sympathetic to
the concerns of the Jewish
community during his 18 years
in the Senate, although he ha*?
supported arms sales for Arab
countries.
The 67-year-old Bentsen is
considered a supporter of the
close relationship between the
United States and Israel, as
well as an advocate for Soviet
Jewry. But he has not been in
the forefront of these issues.
His leadership role in the
Senate has not been in foreign
affairs, but in economic
matters, especially taxation.
He is chairman of the Senate
Finance Committee.
Bentsen has a mixed record
on foreign aid, occasionally
voting against such legislation,
although his opposition is seen
by sources as being more
against aid in general, rather
than the amount going to
Israel.
He did not co-sponsor the bill
in the Senate to create the
U.S.-Israel free trade agree-
ment, but voted for the bill
when it was approved over-
whelmingly by the Senate.
Bentsen co-sponsored the
legislation to close the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
offices, supported Senate rati-
fication of the Genocide
Convention and is a co-sponsor
of the current bill, awaiting
Senate action, to implement
the convention by making
genocide a federal crime.
In 1984, Bentsen was co-
sponsor of the Senate resolu-
tion to move the U.S. Embassy
in Israel from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem. He also supported
the bill to allow persons in the

Meese Cleared in Pipeline Deal
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Independent counsel James
McKay has cleared outgoing
Attorney General Edwin
Meese of any possible wrong-
doing stemming from his asso-
ciation with purported plans to
bribe the Israeli Labor Party
not to destroy a proposed pipe-
line from Jordan to Iraq.
The findings were contained
in a report on McKay's far-
reaching inquiry into Meese's
activities as attorney general.
A key section of the report
probes whether any of Meese's
activities in connection with
the proposed pipeline were
"rewarded by unlawful grat-
uities" from E. Robert
Wallach, a longtime Jewish
friend from San Francisco.
McKay found that the
attorney general, upon
learning from Wallach about
"a promised covert payment
to the Israeli Labor party, took
no action to terminate United
States government involve-
ment in the Aqaba pipeline
project or even to notify other
United States government
authorities of the possible
existence of an illegal
scheme."
But the special prosecutor
concluded that "there is no
direct evidence," apart from
memoranda sent by Wallach,
that "a bribe was or would be
offered to any official of the
Israeli Labor Party."
MacKay noted that a memo
sent by Wallach to Meese
suggested that Israel receive
$65 million to $70 million a
year for 10 years at the conclu-
sion of the pipeline's construc-
tion to guarantee security.
The pipeline scheme origi-
nated in 1983, when Bechtel
Great Britain Ltd. proposed to
Iraq and Jordan that a pipeline
be constructed from Kirkuk,
Iraq, to the Jordanian port of
Aqaba.
