There was the added consideration of the distance

The reason for this secrecy was that most of the

existence and presence are the

We Condemn the Violence
We join the many Jewish organizations and
leaders across the nation and in Israel that condemn
the violence perpetrated against Arab residents on
the West Bank
The death of the yeshiva students in Hebron
last month was a tragedy that can not be forgotten.
But the bombing attacks on the Arab mayors do
not erase the tragedy, and they can not be forgiven.
Far from strengthening Israel's presence on the
West Bank, the violence only serves to weaken it.
Furthermore, when we condemn Palestinian
violence as bestial and unspeakable, we condemn all
violence. Condemnation of violence can not be
selective. It is a repudiation of inhuman behavior.
These assessments must hold true for the
Jewish extremists responsible for this week's at-
tacks, as well.
There will be those who are afraid to repudiate
the attacks on the basis that they were launched in
the cause of Israel's survival. We do not doubt the
extent of the danger to Israel's survival. Disaf-
fection with Israel's cause grows daily, especially in
Europe, whose revolting pragmatic politics brings
new anti-Israeli betrayals every day.
But the extremist bombings do not strengthen
Israel's cause. In our view, they weaken it. Israel's
survival must depend on other thingsparticularly
the iron determination not to submit to her am-
putation and even execution by demands from her
"friends" for never ending concessions.
At the very least, Israel must be as efficient in
ferreting out those responsible for this week's
violence as she has been in the past in her defense
against outside enemies. The enemies within,
Jewish though they may be, are no less dangerous.
Consulate for Miami
For a long time now, pressure has been
mounting for the establishment of an Israel Con-
sulate in Miami. We can understand the original
consular structure as established by the State of
Israel to represent its nationals and its interests in
the southeastern part of the United States.
But to continue not to have an Israel Consulate
in Miami seems to us to be a grievous omission. It
downgrades the efficiency and the cross-sectional
representation of Israel's consular corps.
It fails to take into account the phenomenal
growth of the Jewish community of South Florida
during the past 30 years, including its substantial
Israeli contingent, whose philanthropic and
organizational contributions to the Jewish State are
Until Miami has a full-fledged Israeli Cop jlate
here, both will suffer an unworthy and une >lain-
able dearth of diplomatic representational prest-nce.
Turning on the Tears
There seems to be a flood of crocodile tears by
West Bank And Gaza Strip leaders over the
resignation of Ezer Weizman as Israel's Defense
Minister. It was a 'major loss for mutual un-
derstanding between Jews and Arabs." they
moaned. Others expressed the fear that the
moderate viewpoint would no longer be heard in the
A similar display took place when Moshe
Dayan resigned as Foreign Minister last year. It is
probably true that Dayan and Weizman, both

'Tin Drum'Marches to Fearful Tune
ONE WEEKEND evening
almost a year ago, I stepped into
a Munich theatre to see a movie
called Tin Drum. Now, the movie
is making the rounds here in
South Florida, and I have gone to
see it again.
It is even better the second
time around. The film is based on
the 71m Drum by the German
novelist, Gunter Grass, whom I
consider one of the foremost
literary artists in the world
today. The book is part of a
trilogy, which includes Hun-
dejahre ("Dog Years") and Katz
und Maus ("Cat and Mouse").
The trilogy documents the af-
termath of World War I as it led
to the Hitler madness and then
the aftermath of that madness
following the destruction of
Hitler's Thousand-Year Reich.
Tin Drum is the work of the
director, Volker Schlondorff,
which won an Oscar for the best
foreign-language film of the year.
But Oscars are misleading. Too
often, they praise pap, although
not in this case. Award-winner or
not, the film's excellence speaks
IT IS ONLY a coincidence that
the "hero" of the novel, if such he
be, is also called Oskar, a tyke of
five or six years of age when the
Nazis begin to strut their stuff-
As in his other novels in this
trilogy. Grass uses Danzig as the
setting for his work, the free
Polish city which, together with
Memel. constituted the twin
poles of the Polish corridor, and
which Hitler annexed coin-
cidentally with his attack on
Warsaw to launch World War II.
For Grass, Danzig is symbolic
a microcosm of east and west
and, in a larger sense of global
mankind, at least as global as our
sensibilities permitted us to see
things before the post-war rise of
the Third World to enlarge our
view of the realities of this planet
IT WAS in Danzig that
Germans and Poles lived side-by-
side in an uneasy cultural and
political relationship. It was
Danzig that, as a free city, had to
survive in its integrity if
mankind itself was to survive.
But Danzig falls to the Nazi
beast, and mankind falls with it
because mankind, since the birth
of Oskar in 1924, has refused to
take a stand against the beast.
The fall of the city is hence the
fall of man himself in punishment
for his profound moral lapse.
The date of Oskar's birth is, of
course, patently significant, for it
was on February 24, 1924 that
the trial began of the leaders of
the Hitler Putsch in Munich,

Assimilating into the mainstream

nd Russian Russians."
This analysis was presented
here by Ezra Mendelssohn, senior
cturer at the Institute of
contemporary Jewry and
Russian Studies at the Hebrew
Jniversity and a visiting
professor of history at the
|University of Michigan.
MENDELSSOHN was one of
(several guest speakers at the
(Conference of Problems of Soviet
I Ethnic Policies examining the
Istatus of Jews in the USSR and
[the impact of anti-Semitism. The
[forum, held at New York's
(Columbia University, was

jBlaustein Institute for the
(Advancement of Human Rights.
(Columbia University Program on

University Program on Soviet
Nationality, and the Greater New
York Conference on Soviet
Speaking to about 150 people.
Mendelssohn presented an
historical perspective of Czarist
and Soviet anti-Semitism. Under
the Czars, although conditions
were favorable for "collective
Jewish expression." tolerance for
individual Jews was very low as
they were perceived as an "alien
element in backward peasant
society." he said.
Jews also found themselves in
the middle of intense nationalist
competition, especially in the
Ukraine, "the hotbed of anti-
Semitism in the pre-World War I
period," which led to both social
and religious anti-Semitism.
Also. Mendelssohn observed,
during the late 19th and early
20th centuries. Russia was going
through great political and social
flux a condition never con-
sidered conducive for minority
advancement and or ac-

Prime Minister Mena-

that he will serve as De-

placement of former De-

man is resolved. Begin's
interim appointment of

served for the last three years.
Begin promptly announced that

Shamir, who took office in
March, would be shifted to the
defense slot and that Energy

of Likud's Liberal Party, would

opposition from the Democratic
Movement which said Modai

Agriculture Minister Ariel
Sharon who presented himself as
the most suitable candidate for
Defense Minister and threatened
to resign if the post went to
Shamir. He accepted the interim
appointment of Begin.
Sunday's Cabinet session was
marked by sharp exchanges be-
tween Sharon and Begin.
Sharon, a Yom Kippur War hero
and the Cabinet's most out-
spoken hawk, claimed that if
Shamir became Defense Minister
and Modai Foreign Minister,
Begin would have "abandoned
the security of Israel."
Begin retorted thai he did not
consider it necessary to have a
military man M Defense
Minister and noted that in many
countries, including Britain and
the U.S., that office traditionally
is held b) a civilian.

Begin met with an NRP
delegation Friday and ap-
parently reached an under-
standing with them. Although
Begin himself threatened to
resign last week unless the
Cabinet crisis is resolved, he
changed his mind.
He reportedly told the NRP
members that if he quit now,
bringing down the Likud
government, the next govern-
ment might be headed by the
Labor Alignment which could
mean, according to Begin,
handing the West Bank over to
the Arabs to form a Palestinian
state. "My hands will not spill
this blood," he said. Meanwhile,
the Labor Party charged the
Begin government with en-
dangering national security.
"The security and the very exis-
tence of the State have become
toys in the hands of a quarrel-
some and unstable government,"
the Labor Party said over the
weekend. "It is not a matter of
conflict between the opposition
and the government but real
concern for our existence," the
party communique said.

400 Attend Press Club
'Arab-Night' in Washington
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The National Press Club's
"package" agreement with the
Arab League, which includes the
Organization in its membership,
was completed here with an
"Arab Night" extravaganza
attended by some 400 persons.
While the guest list was not
available, the Jewish Telegraphic
Agencv was informed by club
staff members that about half the
attendance was made up of
members of the Arab embassies
in Washington and Arab
THE JTA was told that Drew
von Bergen, the club's president,
had the only list and "he's gone
away for a few days." The Arab
league's information officer,
Morwan Kanafani. who identified
himself as a Palestinian, told the
JTA that "all the embassies" of
the League's member states in
Washington were represented,
except Kgypt. Among those from
the Carter Administration
present was Paul Costello.
assistant press secretary U> Mrs.
During the night, four
telephone bomb threats were
received at the Press Club but no
trace of the caller was reported.
Police dogs were used to search
the club's ballroom during the
day and during the night but
nothing was found.
In the street outside the Press
Club building, four men picketed
the event, the only sign of
protest. One of them, who
identified himself as Mike Meir
and said he represented only
himself, charged that the Arabs
were "buying" the press club.
