(JTA) The old saw about
two Jews and three opin-
ions doesn't fit the results
of the Democratic primaries
in New York, Connecticut,
Massachusetts and Florida
that followed the U.S. vote
for the anti-Israel
resolution on Mar. 1 in the
UN Security Council.
While the balloting in Illinois
was considerably less clear-cut, in
the other four states Jewish
anger with the Carter Adminis-
tration was strikingly evidenced
and forecast trouble for the
President in primaries ahead in
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland,
Michigan and California unless
Presidential policy and State
Department follow-through
bolsters diplomatic support for
the lone democratic country in
the Middle East.
"THE LESSON out of the
volatility of the Jewish electorate
' is a clear lesson for November
that the Democrats would be
making a mistake by taking Jews
for granted and Republicans no
less a mistake in writing them
off," said Nathan Perlmutter, the
national director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, following Sen. Edward
Kennedy's victories in New York
and Connecticut.
A well-placed political observer
summarized the New York and
Connecticut results as being "a
great victory for supporters of
Israel." He said, "It showed
American Jews and their friends
are willing to express themselves
against imposition of decisions
by outsiders on Israel and a
strong indication of opposition to
the Carter policy in the Middle
A Boston Catholic academic
lost his usual cool to exclaim:
"Thank God for the Jews: they
showed us the way finally to
stand up to the Carter adminis-
tration's follies domestically and
internationally." Another
analyst said: "It is now an issues
campaign. The security of Israel
is a national matter. The true
concern in the Jewish community
for Israel is joined by the general
mood of concern over the
deterioration of the Carter policy
in foreign affairs."
munity was manifested im-
mediately after the Mar. 1 vote.
The President's disavowal of the
"Jerusalem" aspects two days
later was found inadequate and
unacceptable. The anger
deepened and spread after Sec-
retary of State Cyrus Vance told
both the House and Senate that
the administration would not
rescind its vote by a statement in
the United Nations and that the
resolution was in line with U.S.
But it would be a mistake,
observers noted, to see the
President's defeats as based on
the anti-Israel resolution.
"National disquiet" is how his
setbacks were generally seen by
political specialists, who pointed
to what Americans perceived as
domestic and global failures in
"This was the first time
Democratic voters made some
connection between their obvious
dissatisfaction with the state of
the nation and the process of
deciding on their 1980 Presi-
dential nominee," the Washing-
ton Star, owned by Time, Inc.,
"What they had been saying
heretofore was that they may
have lacked confidence in Car-
ter's stewardship but viewed the
alternative of Sen. Ted Kennedy
as unthinkable."

clared: "There was more at work

Israeli army personnel were on

holed up there.
The terrorists had entered

An Early
Afl part of the secular program
at the Jewish Community Day
School, the children frequently
take field trips. The staff decided
that it would be informative and
exciting for the children to
d\ elop a taste for classical music
at an early age. To implement
this, they are planning to take all
the children to a performance of
the opera "La Boheme" on April
25 and to hear the F.A.U. Sym-
phony on June 4.
Prior to the field trips, the
children are learning the
vocabulary appropriate to
fostering an appreciation of the
performances. The parents will
drive groups of the children to
each destination. These two per-
formances will be part of an on-
going program of cultural events
for the JCDS students.

Cut Out The Twitching
The State Department made a valid point when
it said that United States foreign policy will not
change as a result of Sen. Edward Kennedy's upset
victory over President Carter in the New York
Democratic Presidential primary Mar. 25.
"If each post-election analysis were to create an
involuntary reflex on what we do, we'd be twitching
every week," State Department spokesman Hodding
Carter told reporters the day after the New York
But the real message that the Carter ad-
ministration's foreign policy establishment should
get from the New York vote is that there has been too
much "twitching" in the State Department and the
White House.
Sure. New York Jews were expressing their
anger at the U.S. vote in the United Nations
Security Council Mar. 1 for an anti-Israel resolution
despite the President's repudiation of the vote two
days later. But Jews like others were also upset by
the inability of the administration to deal with in-
flation, and many said this was their chief reason for
voting for Kennedy or sitting out the election.
When it came to the UN vote, many saw this as
a signal that U.S. policy was shifting in the Middle
East toward a definite pro-Arab tilt. The Carter
administration has spared no effort in trying to
change this perception.
But what the President or Vice President Walter
Mondale or Mrs. Rosalynn Carter says one day is
contradicted the next by a statement from Secre'.ry
of State Vance or some other State Depart :u?nt
official. This transmission of confusing signals not
only occurs on the Arab-Israeli conflict but in other
areas of foreign policy dealings with the Soviet
Union, Iran, Cuba and elsewhere.
What Jews and all Americans want is a clear,
consistent policy, not twitching.
Gov. Graham Overlooks College Needs
DURING THE last few weeks.
I have been logging a lot of
telephone time talking to Florida
state legislators and the
Governor's office about the 1960
budget for higher education.
The legislature opened its
session Tuesday, and funding for
colleges and universities is high
on the agenda. In fact, even out
of session, education on every ,
level is always high on the
agenda and not just in state
legislatures either.
THAT OLD saw about the
weather applies to education, too.
Everybody talks about it. but
that is as far as anyone gets.
Nobody ever does much more
than cosmetic to help solve its
problems. There are few subjects
to which more sanctimonious lip
service is paid and equally few
which are sloughed off at the
public trough with greater
alacrity as being unworthy of the
time spent on so much debate.
I suspect that one reason for
this is the highly personal view
everyone takes, including
politicians in both the best and
the worst sense of that word, on
just what education is and ought
to be.
Figures can be a very sub-
jective thing. They can reflect our
interpretation of history and
rationlize our insights into the
shape of the future. I can explain
in no other way the conflicting
sets of figures and statistics I
have received from state officials
on Florida's fiscal plans and
educational innovations for 1980.
generalized interest in academics.
I am on the faculty at Miami-
Hade Community College, the
nation's largest, where some
pretty unusual things are taking
place these days for an in-
stitution that has a singularly
exciting record in the arena of the
unusual from its earliest days.
Reckoned in terms of Gov.
Graham's 1980 budgetary
proposal for community colleges,
the fact is that he had made none.
The Governor has simply
overlooked the financial needs of
the state's community colleges as
a system and of Miami-Dade
Some officials privately
concede that the oversight was a
boner brought about by the
$125,000 inquiry in 1979 into the
status of Florida's colleges and
just what to do with the findings
of the inquiry commission.
A POPULAR consensus is to
do nothing about the findings,
but instead to give the Governor,
say, a two-year trial period in
which to demonstrate the
cabinet's active concern for
matters of education to overcome
its abysmal record in these
matters in the past.
The real issue here, which most
people would rather not talk
' about, is that, apart from some
cheery words for its
achievements, there is only a
vague understanding of the role
of the community college system
in the 1979 inquiry. Four-year
colleges and universities, with
budgetary needs of their own,
obscure the debate with such
matters as these:
The powers of the State
Board of Education, composed of
the Governor and members of the
cabinet (for whom the two-year
trial period to prove their mettle
is now being debated):
The Board of Regents, and
particularly its iron-handed role
in the destiny of the state's
flagship universities;

The Voice of Sadat to His People
Peace Now Demonstrators
Chant Demand for Begin
To Quit as Premier
TEL AVIV (JTA) One of the sections read in
the Passover Haggadah is Dayenu, which can be trans-
lated as "we are content" or "we had enough." The Peace
Now movement took the second meaning here in at-
tempting to form a Dayenu Chain from Haifa to the
Presidential residence in Jerusalem calling for Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's resignation.
SEVERAL THOUSAND persons lined the 100-mile
route from Haifa to Jerusalem carrying such signs as
Begin, Go to the President" (to offer his resignation),
"We have had enough of you," and "Don't Miss the
Peace Now leaders issued a statement charging that
Begin was following a policy that would lead to "per-
petual war." But some Likud leaders said the demon-
stration was a threat to democracy. They said a govern-
ment resigns because it loses a vote in the Knesset, not
because of demonstrators along a highway.
HAIFA Anwar Sadat
makes a good impression in his
television appearances. No
orator, he nevertheless comes
across well, and conveys good
will and sincerity. The world
accepts him as a man who can be
trusted, this on the basis of his
utterances for world public
What does Sadat tell his own
people, for domestic con-
sumption? Little attention has
been paid to a wide-ranging
interview with him which ap-
peared not long ago in the Cairo
weekly magazine, October.
Without commentary or at-
tempts to interpret, I present
translations of portions of that
interview which I have selected.
HE WAS asked how it is
possible to transform those who
were enemies one day, into
friends forever on the next day.
In reply he declared that real
friendship is not achieved
overnight by decisions or
proclamations. It is a long, slow
process. He knows that some
Israelis are suspicious of Egypt.
On the other hand, there are

HE TOLD of an Israeli
journalist who stood on a bridge
over the Nile and watched the
sluggish flow of the waters
beneath. He could detect motion
only by the slow movement of a
floating piece of paper. The Nile
flows very, very slowly. The
Israeli said he was used to
greater speed, and he found the
slow pace in everything terrible.
We must bear in mind that we
live in two different worlds, the
Egyptian paresident added.
He told of Egyptians who had
visited Israel and were disap-
pointed by the smallness of
everything. The agricultural
plantations were tiny, by
Egyptian standards. The
distances between places were
insignificant in short, two
different sets of standards.
Egyptians also found it dif-
ficult to understand what Israel
calls its democracy the many
parties and sects and the
multiplicity of opinions and
criticism, so that the observer
gets a confused picture and
doesn't know what is offical
policy and what is opposition.
Are the Israelis deliberately
trying to confuse everybody?
That's their way of doing things,
Sadat told his people. It may be
difficult for us to understand, but
we must be patient and tolerant.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
400 Attend Lecture on Middle East Troubles
The congregation of Beth El in
Boca Raton demonstrated its
care and concern for Israel and
her welfare. Over 400 people came
to hear a lecture about the Middle
East and its troubles. They
wanted to know about every-
thing: the Palestinian dilemma,
autonomy talks with Egypt, the
American hostages in Iran,
Israeli and American differences,
the settlements, etc. The high
quality of informative questions
that followed the lecture proved
not only that the people were well
informed, but that they were
genuinely concerned for Israel
and her welfare as well.
Question: What would happen
if the autonomy talks fail?
Ben Gad: The talks will not
fail, because Israel and Egypt
will not let them fail. Sadat and
Begin know quite well that any
failure to achieve a compromise
on the West Bank would result in
defeating their own purpose and
would strengthen, on the other
hand. Russian and Arab
"rejection front" influence in our
area. Both men not only want to
avoid the victory of the Russians
and Arab radicals, but also feel
that they have already gone too
far for the sake of peace and
cannot retreat now.
Question: Will the Shah of
Iran's appearance in Egypt
create troubles for Sadat?
Ben Gad: Sadat enjoys the
tremendous support of his
people. The Shah's refuge in
Egypt was suggested by Sadat
and accepted by the Egyptian
parliament. Sadat is strong
enough in his country to allow
himself to take even seemingly
unpopular steps.
Question: What about the
troubles inside Syria?
Ben Gad: Assad, the Syrian
president, is under severe in-
ternal pressure today and op-
position to his regime is in-
tensifying. It this pressure con-
tinues to intensify, he may begin
military operations on the Golan
Heights in order to attract Syrian
public attention to the Israeli
border. The main opposition to
Assad stems from the "Moslem
brotherhood," which claims that
the Alawites, Assad's sect, as a
small minority, have no right to
rule the Sunnite Moslem
In addition to this, Assad's
opponents blame him for failure
on almost every front. He failed
to regain the Golan Heights
lost in 1967 when he was a
minister of defense he created
a heavy burden on Syria by
sending one-third of its army to
the endless war in Lebanon, he
failed to establish and solidify the
Eastern Front and he failed to
end or at least to decrease
corruption in his country. One of
those accused of corruption is
none other than Assad's brother,
Kif'at Assad.
Question: The I'l.O seems to
be gaining more recognition in
the world. What does this mean?
Ben Gad: Even if all the world
would recognize the PLO, that
does not mean that Israel would
agree to a Palestinian state on
the West Bank. Moreover, if
Western European countries
make the mistake of recognizing
the PLO, they would act against
peace prospects in our area. Their
appeasement of the Arabs will
not serve their interests either.
The Arabs, like most others,
respect people who stand straight
and do not surrender to their
Question: Why does Israel es-
tablish settlements on the West
Bank and provoke all the world?
Ben Gad: The Likud govern-
ment of Menachem Begin in
Israel claims that if the Arabs
have the right to settle in Israel,
Jews should have the same right
to settle anywhere on the land of
their forefathers.
Question: What about the
autonomy differences? Isn't
everything clearly defined in the
Camp David Agreements.
Ben Gad: Israel and Egypt
differ on the meaning of the term,
autonomy." Egypt understands
that autonomy for the Pales-

The Security Council resolu-
tion 242 of Nov. 22, 1967, is a
good precedent to the Camp
David Agreements. According to
Lord Caradon, the British
Ambassador in UN in 1967 and
the author of that resolution,
resolution 242 was written in am-
biguous terms on purpose, in
order to make it agreeable to all
parties involved.
Question: How should
America act to facilitate the
release of the hostages in Iran?
Ben Gad: I am not in a
position to give the American
government advice on what and
how to do. We have to bear in
mind that Iran is very vulnerable
today, and it is wise for her not to
push the Americans too far.

Q: Who was the first American
scientist to win a Nobel Prize?
A: Albert Abraham Michelson.
Bom in Prussia in 1852. Michelson
came to America as a youngster with
his parents. After graduating from
the U.S. Naval Academy in 1873,
and serving several years as an of-
ficer, he changed careers and began
teaching and experimenting. His
work in helping to measure the
speed of light won him the Nobel
Prize in 1907the first American
scientist to be so honored!

Holocaust, on West Ger-
man viewers was powerful
but not lasting, according
to the results of public
opinion polls taken shortly
before the January, 1979
screening, directly after-
wards and one year later.
In November, 1978, two
months before the NBC
television production was broad-
cast in West Germany, 53 per-
cent of the population favored
ending the prosecution of Nazi
war criminals and 31 percent
wanted it to continue. In Feb-
ruary, 1979, one month after the
screening, which had been
watched by 63 percent of the
national television audience, the
polls indicated that 51 percent of
the viewers wanted prosecutions
continued against 45 percent who
wanted them ended.
BUT ONE year later, the
numbers opposed to prosecution
rose to 57 percent while those in
favor fell to 34 percent. The polls
did not indicate any reasons for
the quick evaporation of support
for Nazi war crimes trials.

Jewish vote." but "Kennedy
would have won even if not one
Jewish voter had made it to the
polls in New York."
Both the New York Times/
CBS and the Associated Press
NBC election day polls showed
Kennedy won by a large enough
margin among Catholic voters to
offset a narrow Carter margin
among Protestants. The Times
also stressed that "many people
seemed to be voting against the
President more than for Sen.
Similarly, the Baltimore Sun
observed that the shift from a 2-1
Carter victory in Illinois to an
approximate 2-1 Kennedy
triumph in New York "cannot be
explained simply by pointing to
the big Jewish vote in New York
City or the region's traditional
liberalism. Illinois, after all, has
ethnic Chicago and downstate,
just as New York has the Big
Apple and upstate. No. We have
to look deeper The American
people are brutally face-to-face
with two unwanted realities: a
hyper-inflation beyond the
nation's recent experience and a
humiliating erosion in the U.S.'s
ability to control world events."
Statistically, a Jewish
Telegraphic Agency canvass of
polls showed some curious
results. Jews are generally
regarded as among the most
habitual of voters, but in over-
whelmingly Democratic New
York many did not vote, a sign,
some said, of dissatisfaction with
the candidates. CBS estimated
New York City's eligible vote in a
primary is 57 percent of the
state's total Democratic count
and that the Jewish vote is about
one-third of that state-
HOWEVER, CBS noted, tbfi
Jewish vote in the Kennedy
Carter contest was about om
fourth of the total. The Washing-
ton Post and ABC agreed witn
that estimate, but NBC put it *'t
about 38 percent higher than
the estimated normal. Of the Nev
York Jews who voted, the CBS
New York Times poll estimate '8
percent were for Kennedy and 21
percent for Carter.
The fact Jews voted 4-1
against Carter, it was noted,
means that "the grass-roots
Jews" did not go along with the
appeals of top Jewish leaders in
the Administration and some
Congressmen who had endorsed
the President. New York State
has about 2,141.745 Jews in a
general population of 17,748,000.

Florida's Jewish vote was ap-

Jewish voting in Illinois was
unclear. A CBS analyst, for
example, said its sample was in-
adequate to provide percentages.
Illinois, which has 267,525 Jews
in a general population of
11.243,000, gave Carter a 61-22
percentage victory. The Jewish

generally, but overwhelmingly
for him among those who decided
to vote and stay in the Demo-
cratic primary.

Seminary Denies Women Rabbinic Duty
A program to enable
women to be trained at the
Jewish Theological
Seminary of America for
religious ministry duties,
but not for the rabbinate, in
Conservative Judaism has
been announced by Dr.
Gerson Cohen, JTS
The decision to offer the new
program so new that details of
eligibility, curriculum and degree
remain to be worked out by a
faculty committee was dis-
closed about four months after
the JTS Faculty Senate tabled a
resolution calling on the
seminary to admit women as rab-
binical candidates. The vote on
Dec. 20 was 25 to 19.
COHEN, reporting he had
announced the new program to
the Faculty Senate on Mar. 25,
said that as of the date of his an-
nouncement, applications were
being accepted and that the first
students would enter the new
program in September.
A JTS spokesperson told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
no applications had yet been
received but pointed out that the
new program had just been
The chancellor called the new
program one "distinct from the*
rabbinical school, on the one
hand, and from the graduate
school, on the other. It is in-
tended to train professional
religious leadership to deal with
newly perceived spiritual needs of
the community." The spokes-1
person said one of the matters
still to be determined was an
appropriate name for the new
COHEN SAID the curriculum I
for the new program "will bei
comparable in duration, breadth |
and depth to that of the rab-
binical school, and the ad- >
missions criteria will be no less
stringent." He noted that the
program "will include critical
study of traditional texts, and
courses will be offered in liturgy,
homiletics, and pastoral coun-
seling, as well as in Jewish
philosophy, history and
literature. In addition, courses
offered in other seminary schools !
will be open to the students."
However, he said, "there will
doubtless be certain special
emphasis appropriate to the
purposes of this program."
He said there was a shortage of
qualified personnel in the Con-
servative movement and that the
new program would open "a rich
new source of able personnel"
because it will provide training
for women "to function in the
religious roles for which their
individual talents qualify them."
COHEN declared that the
tujfrn of religious ministry for I
which graduates of this program
will be qualified is presently
scarce or non-existent in our
community. Those who complete
the course will receive a
professional degree in divinity
from the Seminary, and will be
prepared to teach, to preach, to
guide young people, and to
counsel their parents and grand-
During a plenary session of the
JTS faculty and student body
last Jan. 15, Cohen said that "all
of us" who felt the time had come
to accept women as rabbinical
candidates "now have the task of
creating a climate of opinion
which will make such change
Referring to women who had
indicated they wanted to be
admitted as rabbinical can-
didates, Cohen said that he hoped
those women "will find the
courage to serve the Jewish com-
munity in para-rabbinic func-
tions, thus helping to teach the
community the importance of
accepting them in new roles, and
welcoming their contributions."
ASKED BY the JTA for a
clearer description of the
religious functions for which the
new program will train its ap-
plicants, Cohen said that "in
recent years we have had
examples that there are ways of
leading a congregation in other
than an ordained capacity." He
said Carol Glass, who had been
an assistant to Rabbi Arnold
Goodman at Adath Jeshurun
Synagogue in Minneapolis, "did
not perform weddings or lead the
congregation in prayer, but she
provided spiritual leadership."
The spokesperson said that
Ms. Glass had led youth groups,
met with young married groups
and taught adult education
courses at the Minneapolis syna-
gogue. The spokesperson also
disclosed that the new program
will be open to students with
bachelor's degrees and will
require four years of graduate
study. She said that while JTS
officials expected women to
apply, men who were qualified
and sought admission would be

Cohen also said that graduates of

based on a report and recommen-

himself as chairman, in favor of

Land Day Observed Amid Tension
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
authorities took tough measures
here to prevent disorders as much
of the country's Arab population
observed the fourth anniversary
of "Land Day" in an atmosphere
of mounting tension over West
Bank settlements and the
government's recent decision to
establish Jewish religious in-
stitutions in Hebron. That town
and several others on the West
Bank were gripped by sympathy
strikes and East Jerusalem was
also shut down.
"Land Day" is a day of protest
and mourning by Israeli Arabs to
mark the clashes of March 30,
1976, between local villagers and
Israeli security forces. Six Arabs
were killed after demonstrations
protesting the government's
seizure of Arab lands in the
Galilee degenerated into riots.

fatalities occurred four years ago
and in Laggiyeh, near a

the rally drew 3,000 protestors,
among them several Knesset
members of the Communist and
Sheli factions.
While the local Arabs were
permitted to attend the
gatherings, the villages were
cordoned off by roadblocks to
prevent outsiders from entering.
Security forces were under strict
orders to bar West Bank political
figures from the Arab areas of

The tension was first felt last

courtyard of an East Jerusalem
house calling for protests against

Crowds listening to

At Hearings on Middle East
Jewish organizations have
refused invitations to tes-
tify at "hearings" on the
Middle East being con-
ducted by the National
Council of Churches (NCC)
because they believe the
Protestant organization
has demonstrated a pro-
Arab bias which will pre-
determine the outcome of
the hearings.
One of the Jewish or-
ganizations, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, said it
will not testify before the NCC
because of "the clear and con-
sistent pro-Arab and pro-PLO
stance which has marked the
NCC attitude for many years. "
Another group, the American
Jewish Committee, said it
decided not to participate in the
hearings "in the interest of
Jewish unity" after it learned
that all other Jewish organiza-
tions had refused to take part.
THE NCC had invited 17
Jewish organizations to take part
in the hearings scheduled in New
York and in Washington as a
prelude to a three-week fact-find-
ing tour of the Middle East by
the NCC's recently reconstituted
Middle East Panel.
The ADL statement was made
in Palm Beach, Fla., where the
agency's national executive com-
mittee met last Nathan
Perlmutter, ADL's national
director, said the decision was
made after "painstaking delib-
erations" which concluded that
the hearings have a "pre-
determined outcome."
He said the ADL decision was
made "reluctantly and with deep
regret" particularly since the
ADL has had a long relationship
with the NCC. "We have shared
barricades on many battlefields
for human rights and inter-
religious and interracial friend-
ship and understanding," Perl-
mutter said.
IN A REPORT prepared for
delivery to the ADL's executive
comnmtee meeting, Nat
Kameny, chairman of the
national program committee, re-
viewed the NCC's "disturbing
and troubling record of pro-Arab,
pro-PLO leanings." Among the
examples cited are: various
programs and seminars "con-
sistently unfriendly to Israel";
"experts" used by the NCC for
guidelines who, for the most part,
the ADL said, are former mis-
sionaries in Arab lands with a
conditioned bias; anti-Israel
resolutions and a recent NCC
press kit which the ADL said
seeks "to undermine and reverse
Christian support of Israel."
Kameny noted that while NCC
"has always claimed" an even-
handed approach in the Mideast
"when votes are taken in the
NCC governing board on reso-
lutions affecting Israel the views
of pro-Arab. pro-PLO spokesmen
nearly always prevail."
He said that instead of
testifying the ADL will spell out
its differences over NCC's at-
titude and stance in a memoran-
dum to be distributed to church
leaders throughout the United
States. "It is our hope to provide
the factual background on Israel
and the Middle East needed for
informed and sensitive Christian
dialogue on a grassroots level,"
Kameny said.
ever, while not testifying at the
hearings has sent the NCC a copy
of the statements it would have
made to the panel. "The AJCom-
mittee decision was announced
by Rabbi A. James Hud in. its
assistant national interreligious
affairs director, and Inge Lederer
Gibel, program specialist in the
Interreligious Affairs Depart-
"Since its founding in 1906, the
AJCommittee has been deeply
committed to the democratic
process as a means of sharing
concerns and as a means of
seeking to influence our fellow
Americans," the statement by
Rudin and Gibel said.
"Unfortunately, others in the
American Jewish community feel
strongly in the opposite direction
in relation to the NCC Panel.
Because of the paramount im-
portance we give to the principle
of the unity of the Jewish people,
we are not prepared to undermine
that unity, especially at a time
when hostile elements both here
and in the Middle East are at-
tempting to weaken the State of
Israel. Thus, we feel obligated to
maintain that solidarity at this
critical time."
statement to the NCC, Rudin and
Gibel noted that the AJCommit-
tee testimony planned for the
hearings makes "plain our strong
disagreement with both the
substance and the format of the
panel's work up to now." They
said that "the issues as presently
formulated by the NCC Panel
and the assumptions they rep-
resent hardly reflect the actual
sentiment and convictions of the
majority of American Christians
and Jews."
The AJCommittee also ex-
pressed concern "with the format
of the hearings that allots an
equal amount of time to
legitimate and representative
Jewish groups which have a large
and broad-based constituency as
well as to those groups and
Jewish individuals who represent
only themselves, who have been
publicly repudiated by the Amer-
ican Jewish comunity for over 30
years. For the NCC Panel to
devote substantial time and
attention to such discredited
individuals is akin to having Carl
Mclntire and Billy James Hargis
appear In-fore a Panel as
authentic representatives of
American Protestantism."
The NCC Panel was created
last November when the NCC
general board refused to adopt a
proposed resolution which would
have charged Israel with
violation of human rights and
called for suspension of all U.S.
aid to the Jewish State. The
decision by the NCC to send a
fact-finding group was at the
time hailed as a "constructive,
responsible and statesmanlike
approach for dealing with the
Middle East issues," by Rabbi
Marc Tanenbaum, director of
interreligious affairs for the
IN ISSUING their statement,
Rudin and Gibel stressed that
they acted after consulting with
AJCommittee executive vice
president Bertram Gold, who is
currently participating in the
AJCommittee's Board of Gover-
nors' meeting in Egypt and
Israel, and with Tanenbaum, who
is in Thailand as a member of the
International Rescue Com-
mittee's efforts to supply food to
starving Cambodian refugees.

allocations going back five and
six years.
Miami -Dade Community
College insists that, although
other colleges in the system may
have failed to make their needs
known, M-DCC has not failed to
do so. And, while it is not willing
to dispute the Governor's
statistics for 1980 community
college allocations, it emphasizes
that these allocations are for the
entire system and that they
remain as projected 90 far as the
Miami institution is concerned
somewhere in the neighborhood
of 5 percent over the previous
year's funding. All it wants the
college says, is equal treatment
with the state's other institutions
of higher learning.
opinion apart, my own interest
focuses on the rationale of some
state officials who privately own
up that Miami-Dade's reading of
the Governor's budget is
essentially correct. M-DCC's
student enrollment, they declare.
is down. Why should not the
school's allocation reflect this
in diminished budgetary needs?
My own view is in accord with
the 1979 state commission's
inquiry into the status of
Florida's colleges that recom-
mended that college budgets be
based on an individual school's
programs and quality of per-
formance rather than on student
I noted at the outset that
Miami Dade Community College
is not only the nation's largest
such institution, but that it is a
place where some pretty unusual
things occur. Most recently, one
of these is the placing of some
4,000 students in the previous
academic period on suspension
for poor scholastic performance.
This is an astonishing step for
a community college to take,
whose theoretical principle of
function is rooted in the open
door policy buttressed by equa'
access/equal opportunity
criteria criteria that argue that
disadvantage*! persons in social
strata most frequently
discriminated against on
economic and ethnic bases are
entitled to every academic benefit
of the doubt.
To suspend students in this
category for poor scholarship is
courageous beyond question. It
suggests that equal ac-
cess/equal opportunity is not
automatic carte blanche to a
successful college experience. It
focuses the spotlight of critical
attention on the function and
performance of the lower levels of
public education which ill served
these students academically, and
certified them as potential college
candidates, thus inspiring them
with false hopes and with a false
sense of what college is all about.
It must, of course, here be
added that not all those
suspended are EA / EO victims,
but many are, and it is they who
are more likely to cry foul for that
very reason.
MIAMI DADE holds out an
open hand to those who can and
are willing to struggle to achieve,
but is now saying "no" to those
who have been led to believe that
a college degree is as socially
automatic as high school
graduation has been made to be.
Much more must come from them
in the future.
Above all, the Miami-Dade
Community College decision in
this regard is a step in the
direction of the very quality
education that our national, state
and community leaders always
talk about but never mean
because it is not politically wise
to mean it. Reckoned in terms of
the M-DCC decision to strive
toward quality education, the
state's bovine policy that has
heretofore predicated allocation
on student population punishes
the college for a decline in
enrollment for reasons of a
growing selectivity in the name
of quality.
Persons here who have over the
years watched M-DCC grow up
and make its contribution to the
community must let their sen-
timents In) known that the in-
stitution's energized interest in
quality education is to be
congratulated and rewarded, not
punished. An open door to higher
education means just that
open. It ought not mean

GLS Without
'Right Machinery'
To Deal With
Iran Situation
Monhe Da\an
Israel's former Foreign Minister Moshe Day an told a
gathering of the Tiger Bay Club at the Fontainebleau-
Hilton on Miami Beach Sunday night that the United
States does not have the "right machinery" to deal with
the kind of situation as it is currently confronting in Iran.
"I don't think that you are short of military power,"
Dayan declared, telling the more than 1,000 guest that "I
don't think you are weak. But the United States could
strengthen its credibility abroad."
THE UNITED STATES may have the capacity to
launch a lightening nuclear war, he said, but it lacks the
capacity to solidify agreements with other nations abroad
to use their military facilities and "take military action
when necessary" in more conventional forms.
Under these circumstances, he said, "Our airfields
will be your airfields. Our seaports will be your seaports,
and even our so-called Phantom will be your Phantom."
In a reference to the Shah of Iran's asylum in Egypt,
Dayan noted that President Sadat's decision was "not
just an act of generosity ... It also was a first class
political move" that proved Sadat's strength as an in-
ternational leader.

message. U.S. President Jimmy
Carter referred to the work of the
President's Commission on the
Holocaust, which reported its
findings in September. A second
body is now being set up. with
the task of implementing the
proposals submitted by the com-
mission and approved by the
President. According to Carter,
this will involve an "appropriate
memorial to the six million Jews
and the millions of other victims
of Nazism during World War II."
IN THIS most disturbing
statement, the Holocaust is re-
defined to include the sum total
of all the atrocities committed by
the Nazis during World War II
and there were many.
The Holocaust in this view is
no longer a unique historical
event, the result of a quasi-
religious ideology which saw in
the Jewish people a demonic force
ruling the world and con-
sequently tried to annihilate it.
but a hold-all term for "the
inhumanity of man to man,'' and
similar meaningless generaliza-
tions. Not only were the six
million Jews murdered by their
enemies; they now stand in
danger of having their unique
martyrdom obliterated by their
The trouble is that this is done
with the best of intentions by the
only country that now stands by
the Jewish people on many vital
fronts, and by an American
President who is the first to have
undertaken a number of im-

commission and the acceptance
of its report, as well as the
growing recognition of Holocaust
Remembrance Day {Nissan 27)
by the American public, stands
out as symbols of American iden-
tification with the Jewish con-
tents of the Holocaust. The total
misunderstanding of the event as
evidenced by Carter's statement
is therefore doubly painful.
The idea of widening the scope
of the Holocaust did not originate
in Carter's mind. When, on
Holocaust Remembrance Day
last year he spoke of the 11
million victims of the Holocaust
six million Jews and five
million others he was echoing
Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal.
among others. At that ceremony,
candles were lit, one of them by
an Armenian representative.
Now, apparently, the Armenian
tragedy is out. and all victims of
Nazi brutality are in.
Between the spring of 1979 and
his State of the Union speech, the
five million non-Jewish "victims
of the Holocaust" became the
"millions of victims of Nazism."
The change is cosmetic only; the
content remains.
THE NAZIS did indeed
murder millions of non-Jews
considerably more, in fact, than
five million Their policy towards
Poles, Czechs. Serbs and others
has rightly been called genocide:
the planned destruction of a
nation's identity, the selective
mass murder of its intellectual
elite, the destruction of religious
life, its culture and economy, and
the enslavement of the rest. But
there was no plan of total
physical annihilation the
Nazis needed the Slav nations to
build the Third Reich's Kultur.
The Jews were a different
matter: they were not considered
subhuman Aryans, aa were the
Poles. They were not human at
all. Rather, they were a satanic
force that had to be utterly
destroyed. Jews had no choice of
resistance or submission as
others had; they were killed for
the crime of having been bom.
Their destruction was a sacral
Even the method of their
murder after 1941, gassing, was
different: Only a few thousand
gypsies and a small number of
Soviet prisoners of war shared
the fate of the millions of Jews.
The place of the Jews in the Nazi
world was unique, and was
related to the unique history of
the Jewish people and their his-
torical relationship to the non-
Jewish world.
THERE IS no contradiction
between this uniqueness and the
universal implications of the
Holocaust. The Holocaust could
be defined as the planned total,
physical destruction by modern
industrial means of an ethnic or
national group. There are near
parallels, such as the fate of
Armenians and gypsies, and
there is a general mass brutal-
ization, now defined as genocide,
to which it is related.
The importance of the Holo-
caust does not lie only in the fact
that it could be repeated in one
form or another towards Jews
or others but that it stems
from a unique historical relation-
ship of the Jewish people to the
peoples of the world.
The Holocaust has caused
moral questions not only,
perhaps not even primarily, for
the Jews. It has brought out a
major hiatus of moral issues for
