Me I luff ic Verdict
Brings Rioting
Violence erupted in the
city of Miami two weeks
ago, in the aftermath of the
verdict in Tampa that a
jury there had acquitted
four Miami police officers
on trial on charges that
they had allegedly mur-
dered Miami insurance
executive Arthur
McDuffie last December
while trying to arrest him
on a traffic charge.
The all-white jury returned the
verdict in the change of venue
trial within several hours of
beginning its deliberations.

Idozens wounded, including police

Hospital Emergency services
were filled to overflowing with
victims of gunshot wounds,
stabbings and hit-and-run
drivers. Surgeons and physicians
in attendance declared that manv

smoke filled the skies over Miami
from buildings set on fire in the

city. Robbing and looting broke
out almost simultaneously.
Along the 1-95 Expressway going
north toward Broward County,
there was sniper fire directed at
passing automobiles. Snipers
also were shooting in the inner

Blame 'Holocaust'
For i\co-i\a zi Rise
BONN (JTA) Interior
Minister Gerald Tandler of
Bavaria raised a heated con-
troversy when he stated in
Munich that the screening of the
American television film
Holocaust in West Germany last
year was largely responsible for a
dramatic rise in neo-Nazi ac-
tivity Tandler presented that
vw in his annual report to the
constitutional body charged with
controlling political extremism.
He attributed neo-Nazism to
anti-Semitism, denial of Nazi war
crimes and glorification of the
Hitler era. The number of anti-
Semitic incidents reported in
Bavaria in 1979 was 279 com-
pare! to 127 in the previous year.
One-third of the incidents oc-
curred in Munich and Nurem-
berg, the Minister said. However,
he observed that despite the

member of the Social Democratic
Party opposition in the Bavarian
State Parliament, said Tandler's
claim that the Holocaust film
caused an increase in neo-Nazi
activities was a "monstrosity."
Whoever tries to explain the
phenomenon in such a manner is
in fact trying to veil the real
reasons, he charged.
Holocaust was screened on
national television in January,
1979 and according to polls had a
dramatic influence on the
estimated 25 million viewers. But
while the film ended West
Germans' silence and indifference
toward the Nazi persecution of
Jews, later polls snowed that the
effects quickly wore off.

Second Soviet Jewish Family Arrives
The second Soviet Jewish family recently
arrived in South County. They were welcomed at
the Palm Beach Airport by Spencer Gellert,
executive director of the south County Jewish
Family and Children's Service, and Mirra Best, a
member of the South County Jewish
Federation's Soviet Resettlement Committee.
Arriving were Arkady and Rimma Livshits
with their two sons, Yevgeny, 8'/, and
Vyacheslav, 2'/i. Arkady is a civil engineer, and
Rimma is a bookkeeper. Yevgeny, who is called
Gene, is enrolled in the South County Jewish
Community Day School. Vyacheslav, who is
called Slava, is at home with his mother.
Spencer Gellert said, "Alighting from the
airplane, they were absolutely beaming with joy.
Although they do not speak English, their
warmth and excitement enveloped the greeters.
Actually. Rimma does speak a very rudimentary
English. Gene, their 8'i-year-old, greeted me by
saying in English with a Russian accent, 'Hello,
my name is Yevgeny, what is your name?'
"We are looking forward to this family in-
tegrating very easily into our American Jewish
community. While they were in Italy, they went
to the synagogue and showed us beautiful
postcard pictures of the synagogue."
The Livshits family will be housed in a cottage
home provided by the Federation next door to
the Friedyland family, the other Soviet Jewish
family who arrived in South County two months
ago. After the necessary papers are obtained.
Arkady and Rimma will enroll in a CETA
English language program. The family will also
be tutored at home by tutors coordinated by the
National Council of Jewish Women.
Marianne Robick, chairperson for the Jewish
Federation's Soviet Resettlement Committee,
indicates that volunteers are still needed to work
with arriving Soviet Jewish families in the areas
of transportation, tutoring and hospitality.
Those interested should contact the South
. County Jewish Federation office.

The establishment of the

Jerusalem in 1925 was extremely
significant, both symbolically
and practically, for what was to
become the future State of
Israel, according to chapter
Its growth over the in-
tervening years to its present
four campuses in Israel and its
student body of over 15.000,
representing 40 countries, and
its faculty of over 2.000, have
established it as one of the major
educational institutions of the

Us benefit to the State of
Israel is derived not only from

academicians, but also from the
practical results of providing
leadership in the fields of the
humanities. social sciences,

A Federation of Arab Institu-
tions in the Americas was formed
in 1968 and has met through the
years, most recently, last year in
Iraq. It has been designated by
its Latin American members as
the official link between the Arab
world and Arab population of
Latin America.
The Federation has encouraged
an Arab consciousness among
Latin Americans, but has also
woven an intricate web of eco-
nomic ties between Arab-
descended citizens of Latin
American countries and Arab
States. The Federation has taken
a stand that "the PLO is the
legitimate representative of the
Palestinian People."
EVEN MORE disturbing is
the Latin Americans' recognition
of their dependence on Arab oil
and their willingness to
change foreign policy to lessen it.

BRAZIL, the most aggressive
pursuer of Arab business, spends
$10 billion annually on oil, 85
percent of it coming from the
Arab world. Yet Brazilian
contracts with Arab States have
offset this loss to the tune of
several billion dollars. The most
frightening development in this
economic trade has been

scribed the trade-off this way:

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Understanding the Refugee
As Jews, we are perhaps more aware of the
meaning of the word, "refugee," than most other
peoples in western civilization. We have been
refugees, at one time or another, for thousands of
years. And even when we were not, our permanent
homes, wherever we chose to make them, which often
meant wherever we were permitted to make them,
took on the psychological set of a wayside inn.
History has repeatedly taught us to be prepared
to be plundered and have to pass on.
With this ancient and sophisticated relationship
to the status of refugee that is a part of our very
fiber, we understand in the best way possible, in the
gut sense, the plight of the new wave of Cubans who
seek refuge in the United States, more specifically
South Florida, from the oppression of the Castro
To seek freedom in America is a tradition since
the founding of the nation, indeed since the founding
of the colonies a century and a half before that.
The Need for Law
No people in our recent history has been
welcomed with more widely opened arms, more
assistance and encouragement in the emigration
process than the Cuban people. Even today, when
the ragtag flotilla of boats continues to bring
refugees to South Florida in desperate contravention
of the national rules and regulations being hammered
out in Washington, not to stem their tide but to
control it so that their emigration is in accordance
with American law and not Castro's meddling, once
they are here the Cubans are welcomed.
We raise this issue in our columns as an
American issue, not a specifically sectarian Jewish
issue. Most of the Jews who wanted to leave Cuba
did so long ago. beginning in the first great wave of
refugees in the mid-1960s. There are few Jews in
Cuba today, and their number among the newest
wave of emigres is surely miniscule.
We raise this issue because the emigration
process from Mariel itself, not the luckless Cubans
seeking to leave there, frustrates American law and
overheats the social machinery of the South Florida
community, where the new arrivals want almost
uniformly to make their home.
Those who oppose the influx of Cubans on an
ethnic basis are a separate problem in
un Americanism.
The focus of the problem is Fidel Castro himself,
whose manipulative methods trading on the tragedy
of Cuban refugees have encouraged the flouting of
American law. It is against this mischievousness
that we object. It is to be hoped that all Ameri< ins.
including Cuban Americans, object to this, as d.
Stilling the Violence
The violence that tore Miami apart last weekend
and early into this week can be understood but not
The Arthur McDuffie verdict seems impossible
on its face. Someone must have murdered him:
surely. he did not murder himself.
Clearly what is needed is a deep-seated overhaul
of our system of justice that gave rise to this
miscarriage of the law. What is needed is a more
careful screening of candidates who present them-
selves for the position of police officer. With greater
attention to this McDuffie might not have been
We observe with admiration the way in which
the Community Relations Board of Dade County
went into action over the weekend in an effort to help
stem the tide of violence.
In these activities, the Greater Miami Rab-
binical Association has also played a role, and the
organization's statement, along with those of other
responsible organizations and leaders, is one that
ought to be heeded.
Perhaps most empathic of all were the words of
Arthur Duffies own griefstricken mother on Miami
television, who pleaded with the rioters to "cut it
out.'' Needed, she said, is "God in us." Her son. she
declared, would still be living and working in the
community today were "God in us."
We agree. It is a good basis on which to move
forward t and to rectify the wrongs that gave rise to the
McDuffie tragedy in the first place.
Nightmare of McDuffie Verdict
IF THE Arthur McDuffie cm*
has not been national cause
celebre up until now, it surely will
be in the weeks and months
I was satisfied with the Johnny
Jones decision in Miami, the case
declaring the former Dade
County school superintendent
guilty of lining his own pockets

his Napes. Fla. vacation home.
I AM NOT satisfied with the
McDuffie decision. In fact, I am
incensed by it. and those who
judged that a change of venue
was necessary if the policemen
involved were to get a fair
hearing on the charge that they
had beaten a Black man to death
in the process of arresting him
must now live with the thought
that what they really
encouraged in Tampa was an
unfair hearing, an acquittal by a
community that would not have
to bear either the moral con-
sequences or the violent social
realities of the fall-out that the
acquittal has already given rise
accept the Jones
But both cases, McDuffie and
Jones, are part of the process of
trial by jury. If I acknowledge
that trial by jury is a just and
indispensible building block in
the American juridical process,
then it is unreasonable to con-
clude that the process worked in
one case and not in the other.
It can not be, I must conclude,
that truth has triumphed in one
instance and been brutalized and
subverted in the other.
THE TROUBLE is that what
is involved here are personal
predilections. I have given myself
the privilege of sitting in on both
cases as an uninvited juror. I

Private Club Bias Won't Go Away
Say a fellow belongs to a
private club that won't admit
Jews, blacks. Haitians, and
Jehovah's Witnesses. Then say
the same fellow, when tax return
time rolls around, claims
exemption lor the $25 or $50 or
$500 he paid in dues. Does the
private club still have the all-
clear signal''
If 22 of New York City's 43-
member City Council have their
way. the answer may be "no,"
and all-clear" will turn to
"murky." For the Gotham
council people have designed a
proposed ordinance under which
the private club would have to
answer to the law if more than 20
; ercent of its members deducted
their club dues as business ex-
penses on their tax returns. The
prime argument is that tots of
business is transacted at the
private clubs along the bar.

Government estimates,

Jews and are anxious to leave the
country or as the status of "boat
refugees" from Indochina, or of
the refugees from Cuba.
Even Soviet Jews, once they
land on Israeli soil, cease to be
classified by the U.S. govern-
ment as refugees, since Israel
eagerly accepts them and offers
them citizenship immediately
upon their arrival.
THE NEW Refugee Act of
1980. passed by Congress and
signed into law by President
Carter on Mar. 17, changes the
definition of the term "refugee."
It significantly broadens the
criteria for designating refugees.
It may open a new avenue for
Arabs seeking to enger the U.S.
as refugees.
The new legislation leaves it,
however, to the President to
specify who could qualify as a
refugee. Under the present
turbulent situation in the world,
when many Indochinese live and
starve as refugees on sinking
"refugee boats," when thousands
in Cuba risk their lives to escape
on small boats to the U.S., when
about 10,000 Haitians flee from
their native land to this country,
it is questionable whether Carter
will decide to admit as refugees
Palestinian Arabs who live in
safety in Israel or in any of the
Arab countries.
One key provision of the new
law increases the number of
regular flow of refugees allowed
to enter this country from the
current total of 17,000 to 50,000
fro the fiscal years of 1980, 1981,
and 1982. The new legislation
continues the provision of the
previous law giving the authority
to the Attorney General to issue
"parole visas" to more than
17,000 refugees into the U.S., if
special circumstances made this
procedure necessary.
HOWEVER, it transfers the
parole authority from the Attor-
ney General to the President, and
outlines a detailed procedure for
consultation with Congress
before it can become operative.
About 14,000 Indochinese and
more than 3,000 Soviet Jews
have been entering the U.S. every
month now under the parole
provision. The Congress was told
by Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance, prior to his resignation,
that 234,200 refugees will be
admitted in 1980.
Jewish leaders are welcoming
the new law which establishes a
comprehensive policy for the
admission of refugees and for
effective government aid in their
resettlement in the country. They
are, however, disturbed over the
fact that in the House of Rep-
resentatives not in the Senate
the tendency was to allow
either branch of Congress to veto
the President's parole decision.
This was stipulated in the
House version of the bill, but the
stipulation was left out
of the final text. The
House version of the bill would
have also returned the quota of
admission of refugees to 17,000 a
year for 1983 while the Senate's
version called for a reevaluation
of the situation in 1983 with no
predetermined limit set._________

The Hebrew word for peacock!
The first of Columbus' crew to set foot in the
"New World'" was Luis de Torres, a Jewish
crewman, a master of languages and one of
Columbus' trusted friends. Thinking that any
natives they might meet may be descendants of
the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Columbus sent
de Torres ashore first, to find out if the natives
were friendly and whether they spoke Hebrew
or some other known language of the day
The beauty and richness of the land captivated
de Torres imagination and he prevailed upon
Columbus to let him settle there In writing
to his friends back home de Torres used the
Hebrew word for peacockTUKKI to describe
a new bird he encountered And through
usage, the American bird came to be called a
Turkey (probably because there is no known
Hebrew word for Gobble Gobble).

The Jewish Flpridiany[SouthQounty
Oil Co. Misleads
American Public
NEW YORK Mobil Cor-
I portation haa misled the
American public by claiming that
settlement of the Palestinian
issue is the key to solving the oil
crisis and to counteracting Soviet
expansionism, according to the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
I B'rith.
The ADL charge came in
response to recent Mobil ad-
vertisements in the New York
Times, the Washington Post, the
Washington Star, the Wall Street
[journal, the Christian Science
I Monitor and elsewhere. ADL said
the firm had substituted "illusion
for reality" by implying that oil
will flow if Israel would
"capitulate" and accept an in-
dependent Palestinian state.
NOT ONLY would this fail to
solve the energy problem,"
declared Abraham H. Foxman,
ADL's associate national
director, "but it would have
precisely the opposite effect: it
would increase danger to the U.S.
because a Palestinian state would
inevitably thrust a Soviet
surrogate like a dagger into the
heart of the Middle East."
Foxman added that "Mobil
should be telling its readers that
the area's endemic instability
makes our first order of business
greater energy independence.
Instead, it feeds the public the
opiate of a Palestinian solution as
the key to energy stability and
Citing Mobil's contention that
the Arab world, fearful of the
Soviets, "remains uncertain
about U.S. reliability and in-
tentions" as a result of the
Mideast impasse, he *said:
Indeed the Arabs wonder about
U.S. reliability, as do many other
nations on the globe. But not for
the stated reasons."
THE REAL reasons, ac-
cording to ADL, stem from the
perception that America allowed
the Shah of Iran "to go under
uithout lifting a hand" and
because many nations "see the
Soviet Union in-owing stronger

Saudis to use oil for political
purposes only to have the Saudis
rebuff them time and again."
Oil prices went up drastically,
Foxman added, due to "control

in demand by the industrialized
world. If there were no Arab-

News in Brief
Drinan Hopes His Voice Will
Continue to be Heard
Robert Drinan (D., Mass.) will
retire from Congress at the close
of its current session next
January, but he intends to con-
tinue raising his voice on behalf
of Israel and Soviet Jewry "in
every possible forum" following
that retirement, he has informed
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Fr. Drinan is abiding by the
papal decree directing him not to
seek reelection to a sixth term as
a congressman. As a committed
Jesuit priest, his associates re-
ported, he has no choice but quit
public office even though he has
served his constituency with
obvious satisfaction.
Now 60 years old, Fr. Drinan
entered Congress in 1971 and has
been from the beginning con-
sistently outspoken in support of
Israel's security and measures to
relieve the plight of Soviet Jewry.
TEL AVIV Recently-cap-
tured terrorists claimed under
interrogation that they were
briefed and dispatched on their
mission by the El Fatah office in
Cairo which Israelis believed was

process with Egypt began. El

Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion. Its Cairo office is located on

'No Excuse 'for Break
In Talks, Begin Declares
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prime Minister
Menachem Begin said that there was no justification for
the Egyptian postponement of the autonomy talks. He
described the move as an "extreme turn-about in the
Egyptian policy." He said that the Egyptians were
merely using the announcement in Jerusalem that the
Knesset had approved a bill declaring united Jerusalem
the capital of Israel as an excuse for postponing the talks.
"THERE WAS nothing new in this resolution," said
Begin. "I myself read a similar statement in the ears of
President Sadat when I visited Alexandria last July."
Begin added that the autonomy negotiations should
continue, but this depends on the positive attitude of all
INTERIOR MINISTER Yosef Burg, who heads the
Israeli committee to the autonomy talks, described the
Egyptian on-again-off-again position on the talks as
He added that "this is a sign of instability" and
wondered whether it was connected with internal
problems or merely a way of exerting pressure on Israel.
The Rabbinical Assembly,. the
international association of Con-
servative rabbis, opened its 80th
annual convention at the Concord
Hotel here with the controversial
issue of the ordination of women
high on the agenda-
Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, exec-

organization, referred to it in his
opening address when he urged
the 600 delegates to approach the
subject in a balanced way that
respects the sensibilities of the
traditionalists who oppose or-
dination of women but would
recognize "that the liberal also
has a conscience."
The debate is expected to be
enlivened by the lobbying activ-

comes true in the form of the raid
on Entebbe. He begins a second
book with the more terrifying
possibility of terrorists with
access to nuclear weapons. This
concept also becomes reality for
the good doctor.
Sartain teams up with a CIA
chief and a gorgeous Israeli
secret agent to stop Carlos, the
mastermind of Entebbe and the
Munich Olympics attack. Also
known as the Jackal, it is Carlos,
the world's most dangerous ter-
rorist, who plots the varied
scenarios which lead to the
ultimate climax.
Indeed there is enough sex,
violence, torture, intrigue and
danger to satisfy the lover of

Unanimous Resolution
Knesset Condemns Ambush
The Knesset unanimously
adopted a resolution condemning
the terrorist ambush that claimed
the lives of six Jews in Hebron.
But the stormy debate over
responsibility for the incident
and future policy on the West
Bank, underlined the deep
divisions within the Knesset and
the public at large which have
surfaced as a result of the Hebron
The moderates scored a victory
.when the Knesset's Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee
postponed a crucial vote on an
appeal against a Cabinet
majority decision to establish
two Jewish religious schools in
COMMITTEE chairman
Moshe Arens, a Herut hard-liner,
objected vehemently, apparently
because he was convinced that
the appeal against the decision
by Deputy Premier Yigael
Yadin's Democratic Movement
would be rejected. But he was
foiled by Pessach Grupper of
Likud's Liberal Party wing who
intimated that if Arens forces the
issue, the Liberals would vote
with the opposition.
The Knesset debate was
marked by bitter charges and,
counter-charges hurled by right-
wing extremists, moderates and
leftists. The exchange was
triggered by Labor MK Haim
Barlev who observed that the
Hebron killings could have been
avoided had the government
implemented its own decision to
evacuate a group of Gush
Kmunim women who have been
occupying a former Hadassah
clink in Hebron for the past year.
Barlev referred to the weekly
"procession" by religious
militants from the Machpela
Cave synagogue to the former
clinic to demonstrate their
solidarity with the squatters. He
called this a needless provocation
at a time when Israel should seek
to minimize friction between
Jews and Arabs.
Cohen of the ultranationalist
Tehiya faction responded that if
the women were a provocation,
the entire Zionist enterprise was
a provocation. The shouting
match that ensued ended only
after Knesset Speaker Yitzvak
Berman ordered Cohen ejected
from the chamber.
Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman, target of a fierce at-
tack from religious and
nationalist militants for alleged
laxity in dealing with West Bank
Arabs, defended the Military
Government's policies in the
territory. He called for a careful,
non-extremist policy in the
Weizman conceded that
political considerations, par-
ticularly those connected with
the peace process and the current
round of autonomy talks, guided
Israeli policy on the West Bank
to some extent. But he firmly
denied that this had "cost lives."
He urged that the pursuit of
peace should continue to be the
basis of all Israeli actions.
THE KNESSET resolution
called for the restoration of law
and order in the territories to
ensure peaceful co-existence
between Jews and Arabs. The
resolution expressed condolences
to the families of the Hebron
victims and wished the wounded
a speedy recovery.
*io' 4 Btjrh Club
j Yehuda Ben-Meir, a National
> Religious Party hard-liner,
1 demanded legal measures that
would place actions by the
Military Government beyond the
jurisdiction of the Supreme
Court. He was referring to a
temporary injunction granted by
the high court yesterday barring
the deportation of West Bank
political figures without due
The injunction was issued on
the appeal of the Palestinian
Council of National Guidance,
which was set up as the leading
body of the Arabs in the ad-
ministered territories, after the
mayors of Hebron and Halhoul
and the Moslem religous judge of
Hebron were summarily deported
following the Hebron killings.
Linn of Likud's La'am faction
urged the deportation of every
member of the Council and of the
principals of any school on the
West Bank whose students
participate in anti-Israel
demonstrations. But Weizman
made it clear that the Military
Government is not planning any
future deportations at this time.
The polarization was evident in
the public sector today, in a
"battle of ads" published in
major newspapers. One ad-
vertisement enjoined Barlev to
remember the 1978 Haifa Tel
Aviv coastal road massacre by
noting that "There were no
women from the Hadassah
building at that time."
The same ad also claimed that
the former Chief of Staff was
responsible for a "national
disaster" the impact of which is
still felt today. The reference was
to the breaching of the "Barlev
Line" on the Suez Canal by
Egyptian troops in the initial
stages of the 1973 war. -
ANOTHER advertisement
was aimed at Weizman. "Can you
say with all frankness and trutk
that our hands have .w*T
blood?" it
that,our hands have not *j5

vertiaement signed by
Blitzer, who said she "

McHenry Suffers Prestige Setback
London Chronicle Syndicate
prestige of UN Ambassador
Donald McHenry within the
Carter Administration was
dramatically weakened when
then-Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance and other senior U.S.
officials overruled his choice of
his deputy for a key State
Department liaison post to the
United Nations.
McHenry's defeat was seen by
well-informed observers here in
Washington partially as a result
of his activist role in pressing for
c. U.S. vote in favor of the ill-
fated Mar. 1 UN Security Council
Resolution condemning Israel.
That vote was later repudiated
by President Carter and Vance.
Administration and
Congressional sources confirm
that Dick McCall has been named
to replace Charles William
Maynes as Assistant Secretary of
State for International
Organizations. Maynes is leaving
the State Department to become
edtior of Foreign Policy quar-
MCCALL, the respected staff
director of the Senate Foreign
Relations Sub-committee on
Foreign Assistance, spent several
years working for former Sen.
Gale McGee of Wyoming and the
late Sen. Hubert Humphrey of
Minnesota, both of whom were
very pro-Israel.
McHenry had pressed un-
successfully to have his deputy,
Richard Fetree, named to the
Hut because several top White
House and State Department
officials felt that the President
and the Secretary of State had
not been well served by both
McHenry and Maynes during the
deliberations leading up to the
controversial UN vote, they
concluded that it might be ad-
vantageous to bring someone
from the outside to the sensitive
sources, they wanted someone
with a different perspective on
U.S.-Israeli relations and other
critical issues.
l'etree's largely Third World-
first orientation and his other
foreign policy views were
regarded by top White House
and State Department
policymakers as very similar to
those of McHenry, Maynes and
former UN Ambassador Andrew
What was needed,'' one inside
source said, "was someone who
would approach the UN dif-
ferently so that President Carter
and Vance might avoid similar
embarrassments in the future."
In the Senate, McCall has been
an active supporter of foreign aid
programs to Israel. According to
his Senate colleagues, he is well-
liked and "effective." Pro-Israel
Senators and staffers
unanimously praised the ap-
pointment which still must be
confirmed by the Foreign
Relations Committee and the full
Senate. No opposition is ex-
MENT, which clearly
represents a setback for
McHenry, has led to some
speculation already about how
the two men might work together
in the months ahead.
The McCall victory comes on
the heels of President Carter
naming Alfred Moses as the chief
White House liaison to the
American Jewish community-
Moses, a former leader in the
American Jewish Committee,
also brings to the Administration
a different perspective on U.S.-
Israeli relations.
White House officials point out
in the aftermath of the anti-Israel
vote at the UN that Edward
Sanders had resigned his White
House liaison job to the Jewish
community early in February. In
addition, other officials with a
non-Arabist perspective on U.S.
policy were also absent from
Washington during the
^rpi"i,Mn,tic Dattle leading up to
the UN vote.
Special Middle East
Ambassador Sol Linowitz was in
The Hague participating in
Palestinian Autonomy
negotiations with Israeli and
Egyptian representatives. David
Korn, the State Department's
.country director for Israel, was
on vacation during the week
before the vote.
WITH THE bitter memories of
the UN fiasco still fresh in their
minds, top U.S. officials con-
cluded that someone like McCall
was preferable to Petree.
McHenry's prestige also
suffered when he urged the State
.Department to vote in favor of an
early, hardline Tunisian draft
resolution at the Security Council
condemning Israeli involvement
in southern Lebanon. McHenry
was sharply overruled by
Washington and instructed to
inform Security Council members
that the United States would
veto that resolution as it initially

Menten Goes on Trial Again
The second trial of Pieter
Menten, whose first conviction
and sentence on war crimes
charges was quashed by the
Supreme Court in 1978, opened in
a Rotterdam district court.
Witnesses from Israel, Poland,
the Soviet Union and the United
States are expected to testify
against him. -
Merit en's new trial is the
culmination of two years of
tortuous legal maneuverings by
the defense and prosecution in
which rulings by one court were
overturned by another. But the
80-year-old millionaire Dutch-
bom are dealer who served with
the Nazi SS during World War II
still stands accused of mass
murders, mostly of Jews, in
Podhorodze village in the
Lemberg district of Poland in
July. 1941.
court found him guilty on that
charge in December. 1977 and
. I '< ,.
sentenced him to 15 years im-
prisonment. He was acquitted of
charges of mass murder in Urycz
village. Although the court
considered his guilt probable,
there was insufficient evidence
for conviction.
Menten appealed to the
Supreme Court which threw out
the Amsterdam verdict and
referred the case to The Hague
district court. The latter ruled
that Menten could not be
prosecuted because of immunity
allegedly wanted him in 1952 by
the" then Minister of Justice,
since deceased. The public
prosecutor appealed in turn to
the Supreme Court which then
referred the case to the Rot-
terdam court.
Menten produced medical
evidence that he was mentally
unfit to stand trial. This was
upheld by a vote of 2-1 by a
special panel of doctors.
BUT THE Rotterdam court
subsequently overruled that
finding. Menten has been under
house arrest for the past two
years at his country villa. His
original lawyer, Louis van
Heyningen, has resigned and the
court appointed a new defense
attorney, Eduard Boehl tsJ

BUT WHEN it is empowered
to judge white against Black, as
just now occurred in Tampa, the
impulse is to take revenge upon
those forces that gave rise to the
polarization in the first instance.
The jury ruled McDuffie guilty
for simply being Black, which it
was not their job to do. They
were telling the bureaucrats that
they are tired of egalitarianism
and welfarism, which lie at the
root of our nation's racial and
ethnic polarities.
The danger in their verdict is
that it gave carfe blanche to the
police to put an end to the Arthur
McDuffies everywhere: Just run
from us Boy, and you've had it.
The verdict was a bugler's call to
a battle that can never be waged

It was a monstrous verdict, not
only on its own terms, but
because of the new forces it has
unleashed in the effort to achieve
racial and ethnic harmony. It
judged not McDuffie's murder,
but the vitality of Cubans and
Puerto R icans and Mexicans who
come in increasing numbers to
these shores. And Blacks, whose

everything in our power to make

national biennial contention in Washington last week. With him on the dais are (left to right)
Phil Baum, associate executive director; Henry Siegman, executive director; Howard M.

Nazi Run in Primary Disturbing
"Troubling," was the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith's reaction to the near-nomination
of a Nazi leader running for Attorney General in
the North Carolina Republican primary.
Commenting on the 56,000 votes polled by
Harold Covington in last week's primary, Justin
J. Finger, director of ADL's Civil Rights
Division, said. "Although it was likely that only a
few of those who voted for Covington are Amer-
ican Nazis, there is something terribly wrong and
dangerous when that many pull a voting lever for
a candidate who heads an organization that
fashions itself after Hitler's Germany, which
waged war against America."
Covington, 26, had as his major campaign
plank to free the Klansmen and Nazis charged
with murder in deaths arising from a shootout
last fall in Greensboro, North Carolina. He is the
successor to Frank Collin, former head of the
Nationalist Party of America, who was recently
jailed on a morals charge.
The foreskins of infants circumsised under
Jewish law will be used as a tissue culture for the
mass production of Interferon anti-cancer vac-
cine, the Weizman Institute of Science, which
developed the technique, has announced. Until
now, the major obstacle to the mass production of
Interferon, a biological derivative discovered 23
years ago which attacks viruses, notably those
known to be associated with certain cancers, has
been the high costs of "growing" it from human
tissue cultures. It meant that a course of Inter-
feron therapy could work out as high as $15,000,
and as a result it was largely confined to experi-
mental treatment.

When the Eichmann trial was held in
Jerusalem in 1961, there was no television in
Israel and no facilities to film it. The Israeli
government reached an agreement with an Amer-
ican company, Capital Cities, to film the trial. The
record was made on videotape, and after every
session an edited version was sent by air to TV
stations around the world.
When the four-month trial ended, Capital Cities
kept a set of the edited highlights in New York,
and further tapes were retained by the Israeli
police, who later passed them on to the Israel
State Archives. After a few years, Capital Cities
gave their copy to the Anti-Defamation League of

A team of Tel Aviv University scientists
headed by Prof. Arie Braunstein has developed
portable power packs operated on solar energy
which are 20 to 30 percent cheaper than con-
ventional portable power units. The units are
valuable both for military and private use in any
area where conventional power is unavailable
for communication instruments, electrical power,
charging of batteries, water-pumping and
The units have been in use and tested during
the past four years and have been found to be
reliable, require no fuel, are non-pollutant, take
only minimal maintenance, are simple to run. and
are generally more economical arid compete
favorably with generators with conventional
engines or turbines which require fuel.
The design of the power packs gives maximum
storage of daylight power for nighttime use and
for heavily-cloudy days. The solar power pack
consists of a matrix of solar cells and panels, and
a switch which regulates the charging of the
battery and the flow of power.

Utilemma of Eighties'
Pessimism Is Growing
yankelovich told the American

bi Americans about the nation's
conomic future had brought on
owing pessimism about our
Ewn personal lives, but that in
Lme we would make a "con-
itruetive adaptation to new
Speaking on "National
Jrowth: The Dilemma of the
Eighties'' at a session of the
UC's 74th annual meeting,
fankelovich, president of the
opinion research firm of
fankelovich, Skelly and White,
ointed out that Americans were
till in a "working-through"
process and "have yet to find new
Strategies for coping, based on
owered economic expectations."
"THE PUBLIC is still
weighing the virtues and
rawbacks of economic ex-
pansion versus a high 'quality of
life," and they are not sure what
oncessions or sacrifices must be
ade to enlist one side or
knother," he went on. "The
[working-through' process
fconnotes the need for a certain
nount of time to think through
pit process."
Yankelovich, one of the
ountry's leading social scien-
tists, added that Americans
ould be expected to have a
variety of responses "anger,
fconfusion, disbelief, denial,
barely suppressed panic,
kapegoating, grasping at
straws, depression, exaggeration,
fatalism, instability of attitudes
psaying one thing one day,
another the next), lack of realism,
and I'ollyanna-ish wishful
thinking that everything will
Iturn out to be for the best"
and that they needed both time
to investigate, evaluate, and
debate today's circumstances,
and political leadership to "define
the terms of the debate and
propose real choices and
priorities for the future."
lie pointed out that these were
dot pathological or abnormal
esponses," but rather temporary
thuman responses to unan-
ticipated and threatening
lhanges in one's life" and "signs
bf the huge amount of effort it
lakes lor people to keep panic at
pay when they first feel
threatened and before they have
nade a constructive adaptation
fo new circumstances."
HE ADDED that theworking-
prough process was dynamic,
ot static, and implied that when
Ihe "sound and fury of the
ktruggle" had abated, people
vould digest the implications of
pew realities and find appropriate
Strategies for dealing with them.
rResolution and consensus will
then replace ambivalence,

Yankelovich listed several
Specific issues that had created
[public anxiety and confusion"
er the matter of restraint
versus expansion:
Energy "The public is
Actively engaged in the process of
forking through to a realization
hat the energy shortage may, in
. be real. At one level of
Consciousness people know full
well that there is an energy
problem and that it is costing
them money at the gas station
nd in their home heating bill.
3ut they don't know how real it
ff and they don't know what to
' about it."
Role of technology
ankelovich pointed out that
public attitudes toward
pchnology had traditionally been
T>gnly favorable, and remained
today, but noted a falling off
rom the unqualified confidence
technology of the immediate
ost-war period. This slippage, he
pdded, was coming from the best
JUcated and youngest segments
Responsibility of govern-
ment "One of the most fun-
damental changes in national life
over the past several decades has
been the decline of confidence in
government," he stated, adding
that Americans had developed a
paradoxical attitude toward
reducing waste as a method for
cutting taxes without cutting
back favorite programs.
"Indeed," he cautioned, "the
public would oppose any major
cutback in services in a wide
range of areas."
t The moral issue Yan-
deklovich defined this as "the
view that shortages and limits
may be 'good for you' because
they discourage waste, encourage
efficiency, and lead people to
pursue simpler, more frugal, and
less materialistic lives," he added
that "Americans speak en
tusiastically about the benefits of
a simple, non-materialistic life,
but they have yet to fully in-
corporate these benefits into
either their day-to-day behavior
or their practical planning for the
AJC meeting that he saw the
need for three major precon-
ditions for forming "a new
consensus on economic growth":
1. "First and perhaps most
important, the country must feel
the necessity for making hard
choices, and these choices cannot
be abstract or theoretical. People
must believe that decisions will
have a direct, immediate, and
significant impact on their lives,
and that such choices cannot be
2. Effective leadership that
guides the public toward
resolution. "The way leaders
manage events and conditions
often shapes the public
response,'' he added. "It is in-
cumbent on the national,
leadership to explain in com-
pelling terms why choices are
necessary and to chart new
directions. If sacrifices are called
for, leaders will also have to
present solid evidence that the
burdens will fall equally on all
groups in society."
3. The public, he said, "must
be given the opportunity to
confront and think through the
real choices," adding that people
"in the current climate of
mistrust often sense they have
lost control over their lives."
They feel more like subjects than
citizens, he said, yet some
decisions are so important and so
central to the security and
stability of the average citizer
that "the public must be given
the time to challenge, probe, and
question the proposal being
"If average Americans are
being asked to play, they must
have a chance to make the rules,"
he said. "They will not accept
someone else's judgment that
they have to sacrifice."

Murdered Students9 Friends
Describe Them as 'Normal'
dozen friends of two of the
yeshiva students murdered in
Hebron, as well as four of the
injured, held a press conference
to stress that their friends were
not militants but "normal"
young people who had gone to
Israel to study and live there.
"Our purpose in convening this
conference is to give flesh and
bones to otherwise cold statis-
tical facts," declared Tuvyah
Gross, national youth leader of
Bnei Akiva to which all of the
young people belonged. Many,
including Zvi Glatt, who was one
of the six killed in Hebron, had
worked with Gross since he had
been a local Bnei Akiva leader in
"THESE KIDS were vibrant,
warm, concerned, gifted typical
American kids," Gross said. He
said talking about them "is our
way of venting our anger, frus-
tration and pain. And by making
them more than just names in a
list, we hope to personalize them
and memorialize them."
Gross said that "hopefully"
the attack will demonstrate "to
the American public that the
PLO and their ilk threaten all of
us and our way of life, here and
around the world." He added
that "there can be no com-
promising with baby-slayers and
butchers of innocent, peaceful
students, coming home from
their Sabbath prayers."
In addition to Glatt, who
would have been 21 on June 13,
the group spoke of Shmuel
Marmelstein, 19, of Montreal,
who was also killed, and four of

in God in American youth and
dreamed of eventually opening a
high school in the diaspora.
"Just one month ago, Zvi
organized a Passover service at a
United Nations liaison base for
both Israeli and UN soldiers,"
Gross said.
One of the participants, Moshe
Pack, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that he
received a letter from Glatt the
day he learned of his death.
"Everything, truly everything
which happens for the best. ."
Glatt wrote.
"Everything, even death, is
not just good, but very good.
Even death, which seems to be
evil, reveals itself as being truly
good and part of the goodness of
IN A RELATED develop-
ment, about 1,000 high school
and college students from seven
yeshivas in the New York metro-
politan area gathered on East
65th Street and Park Avenue
near the headquarters of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion for a quiet "Vigil of Remem-
brance" for the six dead yeshiva
students. The rally was held a
few hundred feet from the town-
house headquartering the PLO at
the request of the police. A large
number of police surrounded the
demonstrators and guarded the
PLO offices.
The vigil was sponsored by
Bnei Akiva and the Yeshiva
University Student Council. The
demonstrators carried placards
denouncing the PLO as "mur-
derers," "butchers" and "bar-
barians." They also carried
posters with the pictures of the
six victims.
Meanwhile, Rabbi Louis Bern-
stein, president of the Religious
Zionists of America, sent a
telegram to President Carter
urging him to publicly condemn
the murder of American citizens
in Hebron and that this condem-
nation be carried through the
United Nations.
The Jewish National Fund
moved more earth during the
fiscal year just ended than during
any other single year ever. This
earthy, prosaic statistic is
pronounced with love by the
JNF's chairman. Moshe Rivlin,
to illustrate JNF's key role in
changing the face of the country.
The earth, millions upon
millions of cubic meters, was
shifted mainly in the "Pithat
Shalom" area in the southwest,
where 10 new settlements are
being prepared as the "fallback
position" for the soon-to-be-ceded

dunes and literally shift them
physically, to restructure the
topography and facilitate farm-
To judge by-the Pithat Rafah
experience (the kibbutzim and
moshavim there are also prepared
by the JNF), the farming can
quickly become lucrative and
In view of the tight political
schedule, the work at Pithat
Shalom is proceeding, says
Rivlin, literally around the clock
in three shifts. In scope, time
and volume, therefore, he says, it
is an impressive performance
"even by international criteria."
To shore up the newly-exposed
farmlands and prevent a reen-
croachment by the sand, the
earth-moving is followed by> the
planting of miles of wind-
While the Pithat Shalom
project is certainly the focus of
JNF's efforts at this time, it does
not exhaust the JNF's capacities.
During the same 12-month period
under review. April, 1979 to
April, 1980. JNF opened up some
100 kilometers of roads in the
Galilee, most of them access
roads to the new "mitzpim"
(lookout settlements) that the
government and the World
Zionist Organization are setting
up on strategic high land in the
THE BASIC aim is to attract
young Jewish settlers and
thereby bolster the Jewish
presence in the Galilee, which,
over recent -years, had been
becoming more and more
homogeneously Arab.
There were "no incidents,"
Rivlin notes, "no scandals." Not
one inch of privately owned
Arab land was touched against
the owner's will. And, equally
important, the new roads and
new settlements whose basic
infrastructure is another JNF
responsibility are not a visual
blight upon the delicate scenery
of the Galilee.
"We are changing the scene
without harming the scenery,
the JNF chairman observes. The
mitzpim are beginning to be
settled now, he continues,
"though not at the pace that we
would like to see."
Taken together, these two
major projects carried out
simultaneously with the JNF's
ongoing work at dozens of local
sites represent, says Rivlin, "a
supreme challenge to our
operating capacity, a challenge
that we are successfully
equipment and its operators are
sub-contracted, but JNF has
maintained its policy of owning
at least .25 percent of the
machinery itself. This has meant
massive purchases of expensive
"iron monsters" abroad. The
supervisory staff, moreover, and
the planners and landscapers, are
all JNF personnel.
"They are genuinely enthused
with the Zionist ideal," says the
chairman of this team of
dedicated professionals. He notes
that their pay is invariably less
than that of the men working for
the private contractors. The
JNF's forestry department
perhaps better known than the
earth-movers is not resting on
its laurels either. This year's
planning calls for 6,000 acres of
wasteland to be planted with
During recent years, Rivlin
notes, the JNF forests have
begun changing the ecology of
the country and the life-style,
especially the recreational life-
style, of the people. On last
Independence Day. for instance,
an estimated one million Israelis
spent the holiday picnicking in
the woods, where the JNF has
installed scores of landscaped
"active recreation" centers, with
rustic-design exercise apparatus
that adults can use and enjoy
while the children play in the
mock forts, bridges and streams.
JNF's policy now is develop
these recreation areas in close
coordination with the local
authorities. In the old days, the
groves were planted by out-of-
work immigrants whom the JNF
employed more out of charity
than out of long-term planning
and design.
Today, however, every park
and forest is calculated to serve a
specific hinterland, and the
nearby towns and villages are
asked to share in the planning
and the maintenance. One result
has been a marked decline in the
incidence of vandalism against
the JNF facilities. Local people
are beginning to take pride in
their parks, says Rivlin, and look
after them.
Looking ahead, the JNF
chairman points to two major
recreational projects: a "desert
park" already being created at
Timna, north of Eilat, in an area
of 70 square kilometers; and a
rural tourism development
around Mount Meron in the

services for the National United

She visited Poland as part of a

Eastern Europe and Israel. On
her return she wrote of her ex-

Excerpts from the article which
was distributed to other
American Jewish papers are

not destroyed by the Nazis, our
guide said .
On to Auschwitz ... We
walked toward the camp itself.
Looking up I saw a familiar
scene: the barbed wire fence, the
watch tower, the railroad tracks
and the saying over the entrance
way, "Arbeit Macht Frei (Work
Makes Man Free). Why was
everything so familiar to me?
Had I been here before? Only in
books and movies and night-
We entered the camp. There
was no gate to close behind us.
The Nazis were gone.
Here was all the evidence that
was needed; what we had come to
see. The human hair. The stacks
of eye glasses. The shoes. The
piles of suitcases stacked with
abandon as the Jewish bodies of
men, women and children had
been stacked.
Suitcases with neatly printed
names. addresses and
destinations. But there was no
destination beyond Auschwitz

too closely? 1 might find my own
there and the names of friends
and relatives.
It was snowing. Somehow the
harshness of the weather was
fitting. We wanted to feel cold.
We wanted to suffer. It would
never make us one with the Jews
of Auschwitz. It would never
allow us to feel their pain, their
sense of desperation, their
loneliness, their death. Nothing
would. But it brought us closer to
their spirits.
More than one and a half
million Jews met their deaths in
Auschwitz. The visit to Ausch-
witz was over. It was time now to
travel the few miles to Birkenau,

Chimneys that provided no heat.
We walked through the snow-

Birkenau to lay flowers on two of
the 19 plaques which describe the
horrors of that place. Two
plaques in Hebrew and Yiddish.
The 19 plaques were covered
with snow. Only Sam Abramaon,
our Polish expert from UJA who
had been to Birkenau before,
knew where to find the Yiddish
and Hebrew plaques. We wiped
away the snow, placed our
flowers on the ground and
