Dayan Hints at Using Nuclear Option
If Arabs Seek Israel's Destruction
TEL AVIV (JTA) Former Foreign Minister
(loshe Dayan hinted strongly over the weekend that
srael possesses a nuclear option and would not hesitate
p use it if faced with destruction by combined Arab
brces. Addressing the Political and Social forum, a non-
iartisan discussion group, Dayan stressed .that Israel
las always said if would not be the tint tetroduce
luclear weapons into the region.
But Israel never said that it
miss the timetable, Dayan
clared He observed that the
Lrabs have some 7,000 tanks
ihich i hey could use against
Israel on the eastern front.
|hould Israel be in danger of
lestruction, "it will be, to the
of my evaluation, in a
sition to tell the Arabs: 'if you
ant to destroy us, we are
apable of destroying you as
|rell.' be said.
SPEAKING ON the future
of the West Bank, Dayan main-
tained that Israel cannot give up
the right of deploying its troops
along the Jordan and in specific
areas of Judaea and Samaria as
agreed to at Camp David. "If the
Arabs are able to move into these
areas without the permission of
the Israeli army, we would be
allowing the dismantling and dis-
integration of the State of
Israel," he said.
Dayan, who resigned from
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin's government last October
and is an independent MK, also
spoke of the economic situation.
He proposed a joint plan of eco-
nomic cooperation between Israel
and diaspora Jewry.
But such a plan would not be
possible if the ideological gap be-
tween Israel and the diaspora
continues, he said.
Hurwitz, who also addressed the
forum, said that more taxes
would not solve the inflation
problem because they would lead
only to more price hikes. What is
needed, he said, is a strong
government capable of effecting a
radical change in the present
structure of Israel's economy. He
referred to the imbalance between
production and service workers.
The service sector is by far larger
than warranted, he said.

purely Israeli point of
view, the most disturbing
aspect of the latest reliable
reports on the development
of an "Islamic Bomb" by
Pakistan is naturally the
deep involvement in the
project of the un-
predictable and mercurial
Libyan dictator, Colonel
Having earlier tried and
| failed to purchase a nuclear
1 bomb "off the shelves" from
China for eventual use against
Israel, Qaddafi offered unlimited
financial backing to Pakistan
which embarked on a nuclear
project after India had suc-
cessfully tested her own atomic
device in 1974.
ALTHOUGH Bhutto was still
Prime Minister at the time, the
Islamic dimension of the project
was there from its inception.
During his trial by the military
regime of Gen. Zia, which sub-
sequently executed him, Bhutto
declared: "We all know that
Israel and South Africa have full
nuclear capability. The Christian,
Jewish and Hindu civilizations
have this capability. The
Communist powers the Soviet
Union and China also possess
it. Only the Islamic civilization
was without it, but the position
was about to change."
A detailed reconstruction of
how Pakistan has been
developing her nuclear capability
was provided recently in a well-
research television documentary
on BBC's Panorama program
and in Strategic Survey 1979.
IN A chapter entitled
"Pakistan's Quest for the
Bomb," the Survey recorded that
"by late 1978 and early 1979 it
became evident that she was
building an uranium enrichment
facility using the gas centrifuge
process to produce weapon-grade
The recent Panorama program
presented by Tom Tibbenham,
showed how this was done. It

Meltzer stated, "We were so

Nazi Increase
Not Worrisome
There is "reason for
concern" over the in-
creased number of neo-Nazi
incidents and the greater
readiness on the part of
rightwing extremists to
achieve their political aims
by violent means, Interior
Minister Gerhard Baum
told a press conference
marking the release of the
annual report of the West
German security services.
He added, however, that
the activities of extreme
rightwing groups do not
constitute a danger for the
democratic system in the
Federal Republic.
According to the report, there
were in 1979 69 neo-Nazi
organizations with a total of
21,000 members. The biggest
organization is the National
Democratic Party with 9,500
members (compared with 10,100
members in 19781.
measures taken by state
authorities during 1979 caused a
decrease in violence perpetrated
by Nazis, a decrease which con-
tinued through the first months
of this year. The Interior
Minister mentioned the ban
imposed at the start of 1980 on
the neo-Nazi paramilitary Wehr-
sportgruppe Hoffman, but added
that the authorities should
remain on the alert.
On Palestinian terrorism in
West Germany, the report listed
several cases of unsuccessful
attempts by the Fatah organiza-
tion (which is the most influential
group in the Palestine Liberation
Organization) to kill Jewish
personalities or to blow up
various targets in the Federal
Republic and in West Berlin.
It also said that, as a revenge
action against the arrest of a
Fatah terrorist in West Ger-
many, Palestinian terrorists
bombed the West German Em-
bassy and the Lufthansa Airline
office in Beirut.
THE REPORT failed to
mention that several Palestinian
terrorists, who were arrested and
sentenced in West Germany,
wore released after the represen-
tative of the PLO in Bonn

make matters worse, the
I'M weather in Chicago was
hardly inviting. It seemed to
sense that I was a stranger, an
intruder, with no family, friends,
or job, and, after the first week,
no money. I learned to count my
pennies and to relish a handful of
peanuts. But then, in the grip of a
major depression, Chicago could
hardly be expected to have any
great concern over one more
human being among its 3 million.
I thought of hopping a freight for
home or a warmer climate, but
knew that a winter freight ride
could be both uncomfortable and
HUNGER and despair became
my lot as I walked the streets of
the Loop, looking for a job. At
night I slept or shivered on
a bench in Grant Park or under
the Michigan Avenue bridge.
Sheets of newspaper wrapped
around my middle under my
overcoat were poor- substitutes
for a woolen blanket or a feather
comforter such as I had at home
as a boy. And the pride that kept
me from begging did not ease
my hunger pangs. But I was not
alone. The unemployed, hungry,
and homeless men on Chicago's
streets were legion. I got to know
many of them by their first

they were called "pearl divers" in
street jargon. But nothing was to
be despised that offered hours in
a warm room, two hot meals a
day, and enough change to rent a
cheap room north of the Loop or
west of the Chicago River on
Madison Street "skid row."
According to a story going
around, an unemployed man who
knew a pearl diver pushed him off
the Clark Street bridge and ran to
the restaurant where his victim
had worked, to apply for his job.
But an observer who had wit-
nessed the incident got to the
restaurant first! Considering the
times. I am inclined to believe the
AS I walked along Van Buren
Street, my eyes searching
restaurant windows for "Help
Wanted" signs, a paint can rolled
onto the sidewalk in front of me. I
looked up to see a man whose
arms were loaded with paint
cans, rags, brushes, and a
miscellaneous collection of
painter's exotica. Standing at the
curb was a badly weathered Ford
pickup half loaded with ladders
and scaffolding.
I picked up the can, put it on
the truck, and helped him load
the rest.

said. "How about a cup of cof-

thought. He needed a shave, but
didn't look shabby for it. His
dark eyes were kindly, set deep
under heavy eyebrows and en-
cased in crinkles. He had an unlit
cigar butt pressed deeply into the
corner of his mouth. As I
remember, he didn't remove it
even to drink his coffee.
He must have noticed me
looking at the "Special" signs
along the restaurant wall.
"Hungry?" he asked. "Want
something to eat?"
I DON'T remember my reply,
but in a few minutes I had a bowl
of rich vegetable soup and an
order of Boston baked beans with
brown bread before me. I was
hungry for companionship, too,
and soon was telling him about
my experience on the train to
Chicago. As I speared the last
bean in the pot, he asked
abruptly. "Want a job?"
"Sure do!" 1 replied. "But I'm

I can't promise you steady

out his hand. I shook it, and the
bargain was sealed.
I soon learned that be brought
just so much money with him
each day for lunch. He had spent
that money on me, that day in
Pixley's: that's whv he had
settled for a cup of coffee. He had
a large family, business was poor,
and. to my surprise it was
contrary to my stereotype of
Jews he was not a particularly
good businessman. Many of his
customers owed him money, and
he had to scrape to get together
my wages each Friday. He closed
his shop on Saturdays.
THE FEW weeks before the
Christmas holiday season passed
quickly. The Friday before
Christmas 1 found an extra two
dollars in my was
money he could ill afford to give
me. 1 spent part of it to pay for
my Christmas dinner at the
Central YMCA. Afterward I
went to one of the writing desks
supplied with paper, envelopes,
and pen. I wrote my father for the
first time in weeks.
My new employer's shop was
on Dearborn Street, just a little
south of Van Buren. Each
working day at noon I would
walk the short distance to
Woolworth's on State Street. A
hot dog on a warm bun with
mustard and piccalilli cost ten
cents. For a nickel more I would
wash it down with a glass of
foamy Hires root beer.
After eating I would go upstairs
to the music center. There 1 and
other teen-agers would listen to
Uncle Bob of radio fame as he sat
at the piano and plugged popular
songs. Every once in a while he
would get a little upset and say.

Unity in Jerusalem
Meeting simultaneously with the UN-sponsored
women's forum in Copenhagen is a group of 20
prominent American and Canadian women leaders
now gathered in Jerusalem.
The UN group in Copenhagen, despite the best
efforts of some of the more level-headed souls at-
tending, is the ring for Round 2 of an anti-Israel.
Zionism equals racism attack sponsored by the
Palestinians. Round 1 was five vears ago in Mexico
Both these events walked away from their
deliberations tainted by the grim reality that a
genuine examination of women's problems world-
wide took second place to a vicious politicization of
their agenda.
In contrast, the Jerusalem meeting is en-
couraging dialogue among women representing the
three major religious denominations with historic
ties to the City of Jerusalem.
A- Rep. Shirley Chisholm ID.. N.Y.I said.
This conference is an excellent opportunity to
move beyond the political realities of turmoil and
conflict which plague many countries in the Middle
East, and toward a genuine sharing of experiences
and common efforts."
The Copenhagen slugfest was divisive. The
Jerusalem gathering hopes to unite.
Meeting Our Pledge
In response to requests from Israel's Prime
Minister Begin to meet our share of the 525 million
of Israel Bond dollars needed, the Miami com-
munity has been quick to respond with payments

Gary R. Gerson. general campaign chairman of
the South Florida Israel Bonds campaign, notes
that peace in the Jewish State doesn't come cheap.
Israel is forced, because of its peace treaty with
Egypt, to remove many development towns,
military installations and factories from the Sinai
area to the Negev. This relocation process is very
costly, and the world Jewish community must help
with their purchases of Israel Bonds.
Hence. South Florida is now pledged to the sale
of S225 million in Israel Bonds before the end of the
With inflation in Israel running at nearl 133
percent, and with a defense budget of 35 percent

the Israelis are desperately in need of aid to build
their agricultural projects, roads and various busi-
ness industries.
Our pledge must be made good.

themes as starvation, disease.

were smuggled out of the camp.
Some of these drawings are in the
possession of the Jewish Museum

Abe Stolar. his wife and son
stood on the tarmac at Moscow

Their personal belongings ha'd

the last moment, they were
turned back.
In the five years since then
there has been no adequate, no
satisfactory explanation. As a
native-born American citizen.
Abe Stolar holds an American
passport, but the State
Department has either been
unable to do anything or has in
the past been unwilling to make
too big a fuss

these years, and perhaps that

Platform Plank
GOP Affirms 'Strategic
Importance' of Israel
(JTA) Republican plat-
form writers in Detroit who
drafted their Middle East
plank based its philosophy
on U.S. aid for economic
ami military programs to
all states in the region to
offset Soviet inroads and
radicalism in the area.
Reports reaching here on the
work of lhe Mideast subcom-
mittee, headed by Rep. Jack
Kemp ill New York, also indicate
ihat it favors a ban on Palestine
Liberal ion Organization involve-
ment in the peace process and
stresses that "the sovereignty,
security and integrity of the
Slate "I Israel" are "of utmost
importance to the U.S."
REPUBLICANS affirm our
fundamental and enduring com-
mitment to this principle,'' the
preliminary plank's language
about Israel says. "We will
continue to honor our nation's
commitment through political,
diplomatic, economic and
military aid."
The plank states further. "We
fully recognizev the strategic
importance of Israel and the
deterrent role of its armed forces
in the Middle East and the East-
West military equation."
With respect to Jerusalem, the
plank says. "Republicans believe
that .Jerusalem should remain
undivided with continued free.
open and unimpeded access to all
religious and holy sites of all
religions." It does not mention,
however. Israeli sovereignty" over
all of Jerusalem, nor does it refer
to moving the U.S. Embassy to
Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
RECOGNIZING the general-
izations of support with respect
to Israel but the absence of
specifics, such as those on
Jerusalem, friends of Israel in
Detroit are understood to be
seeking amendments to reinforce
support of Israel. Among these,
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
was informed, are inclusion of
language stating that Jerusalem
is under Israeli sovereignty, that
Israel is entitled to "secure and
defensible borders." that United
Nations Security Council Reso-
lutions 242 and 338 continue to
underpin the peace process and
that previous U.S. commitments
to Israel, such as the guarantee
of oil supplies, will be continued.
Former New York State Su-
preme Court Justice Richard
Rosenbaum of Rochester, a
Republican National Committee-
roan and a member of the New
ork State Executive Committee
supporting the nomination of
Gov. Reagan: his pres-
idential Mideast platform.
Ronald Reagan, told the JTA
that he is seeking to include such
elements in the Mideast plank.
"We don't want to make
promises to kid the people." he
said. "At the same time, we do
want to have clear language that
says in detail insofar as possible,
the principles to which the
Republican Party is firmly com-
mitted that assure Israel the
Middle East's only democracy
we stand with her unwaver-
THE LONG draft says that
the "first signs of Soviet suc-
cess" in Moscow's attempts to
"gain decisive leverage" in the
Middle East by taking advan-
tage of "upheavals" there "are
already evident in the recent
proposals by European countries
to include the PLO in the West
Hank autonomy talks. Repub-
licans believe that the
restoration of order and stability
to the region must be premised
upon an understanding of the
inter-relationship between Soviet
and radical Palestinian goals.
"Our long and short term
policies for the area must be
developed in consultation with
our NATO allies. Israel, Egypt
and other friends in the area.
With respect to the ultimate
peace settlement, Republicans
reject any call for the involve-
ment of the PLO as not in
keeping with the long term
interests of either Israel or the
Palestinian Arabs. The im-
putation of legitimacy to an
organization not yet willing to
acknowledge the fundamental
right of existence of the State of
Israel is wrong.
"REPEATED indications,
even when subsequently denied,
of the Carter Administration's
involvement with the PLO, have
done serious harm to the
credibility of U.S. policy in the
Middle East and have en-
couraged the PLO's position of

Anderson Delights Israeli Hosts
Independent Presi-
dential candidate John
Anderson delighted his
Israeli hosts when he de-
nounced the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization and
declared that U.S. pressure
on Israel was no Way to
achieve peace.
Earlier, the Republican
Congressman from Illinois,
on a four-day visit to
Israel, told reporters that
the U.S. should ban arms
sales to Arab countries
which refuse to cooperate
in the peace process.
ANDERSON was the guest of
honor at a dinner given by
Justice Minister Shmuel Tamir
on iK'half of the government at
the King David Hotel. In the
course of his speech, he called on
those who believe that the PLO
has moderated its position to
provide proof of that.
"After what happened at
Misgav Am and Hebron, and
following El Fatah's reaffirma-
tion of its charter calling for the
dissolution of the State of Israel,
the burden of proof becomes
even more difficult," he said.
He took exception to state-
ments by American politicians
an apparent reference to the
GOP Presidential nominee,
Ronald Reagan that Israel is
an "asset" to the U.S. This, he
claimed, was offensive because
"an asset was an object to be
manipulated, to be used, to be
handled for the convenience of
others." Anderson preferred the
term "valued strategic partner"
for the U.S. and to safeguard
Western interests.
HE ALSO took an indirect
swipe at the Carter Adminis-
tration when he said peace in the
Middle East could not be
achieved either by exerting
pressure on Israel or creating
tension between the U.S. and
Israel. He reaffirmed his support
for the Camp David accords,
deplored those who belittled the
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty
and stressed "the immense
regard America has for President
(Anwar) Sadat's courage and
boldness in seeking a settlement
with Israel."
John Anderson
Following meetings with
Israeli leaders, Anderson told
reporters that the U.S. is
"giving away a card if we engage
in unrestricted sales of arms to
Arab Countries without getting
some concessions first, such as
that they will cooperate in an
effort to achieve Middle East
peace and indicate a willingness
to join the U.S., Egyptian,
Israeli (autonomy) discussions
now under way."
He also castigated the West
European nations for saying at
their summit conference in
Venice last month that the PLO
should become a party to the
Mideast peace talks. After
meeting with Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir. Anderson said
he was "now more confident
than ever that Israel is dedicated
to seeing a successful conclusion
to the Palestinian autonomy
ANDERSON toured the West
Hank and visited the Jewish
settlement of Maale Adumim.
Meanwhile. Mayor Elian Freij of
Bethlehem declared that he
would not meet the American
Presidential hopeful because he
supports Israeli policies of
settlement and annexation and is
ignorant of Palestinian rights.
Freij said he had been ap-
proached by Anderson aides ^o
try to arrange a meeting. Ander-
son got a similar snub from King
Hussein of Jordan.

Dutch Nazi
Art Dealer Gets Ten-Year Term
Rotterdam district court imposed a 10-
year prison sentence and a $50,000 fine
on millionaire art dealer Pieter Menten
gfter he was found guilty, for the second
time, of participation in the mass
murders of Jews and others in Pod-
Ihorodze village in Poland while serving
Iwith the Nazi SS during World War II.
SHORTLY AFTER the sentence was
pronounced, Menten collapsed into a
diabetic coma and was taken to the
intensive care unit of a hospital at
Bussum near Amsterdam. Menten, who
suffers from diabetes, was not in court
when the sentence was pronounced but
heard about it on the radio at his home
in Blaricum, near Bussum, where he was
under house arrest. He was not
obligated to attend the court session.
Menten's second trial began in May.
He had been convicted in an Amster-
dam court in December, 1977 of the
same crime but that verdict was over-
turned by the Supreme Court and sub-
sequently a new trial was ordered.
Menten, 81, had pleaded not guilty. The
prosecution demanded a 20-year sen-
tence but presiding Judge Pieter
Schipper pronounced a 10-year term in
view of Men ten's advanced age.

Right-Wing FactionsTake'Credit
For Attacks on Jewish Persons
London Chronicle Syndicate
PARIS A report just issued on anti-Semitism in
France reveals that extreme right-wing factions have
taken "credit" for some 60 attacks on Jewish persons or
property during the last five years.
The factions included the French National Liberation
Front, the French Combatants against Jewish
Occupation and the New Forces Party.
The report, by Shimon
Samuels, the European director
of B'nai B'rith's Anti-
Defamation League (ADD, said
that in 1980 "not a week has
passed without the appearance of
an article in a major publication
analyzing the conundrum of
French Jews; French and Jews
(and) French or Jews?'
Jewish double-allegiance vis-a-vis
their Government's dis-
criminatory policy on Israel, anti-
Semitic graffiti in Metro stations,
and street billboards abound and
desecrations of synagogues and
cemeteries are almost a daily
Discussing the emergence of
the "New Right" since the eclipse
of the "New Left" in France in
1968, the report pointed out that
the "New Right" has been
organized into two intercon-
nected groups.
One, the Group for the
Research and Study of European
Civilization (Grecel, formed in
1968, is led by the writer, Alain
Benoist, and has about 5,000
The other, the Club d'Horloge
(Clock Club), was founded in
1975 by graduates of the pres-
tigious National School of
Administration (ENA) who
today occupied important
positions in Government
ministries and were influential in
the political bureaucracy.
THE "Figaro Magazine," the
week-end color supplement of Le
Figaro, has become the "voice-
box" of the New Right since the
daily newspaper was taken over
by Robert Hersant, who now
owns more than 20 percent of the
French press.
"In 1940." the report said,
"Hersant waa the leader of the
racist-fascist 'young Front'
established by the Nazi occupant
on the Champs Ely sees.
"He was at that time,
virulently anti-Semitic and,.
though Grece has not openly
Mpound an anti-Jewish line, its;
glorification of Aryan racist
elitism is small comfort to French |
"This led to a serious physical
confrontation when 50 Jewish
youths of the Jewish defense
organization protested at a Grece
meeting at the Palais de Congres
in December 1979."
The report said that "French
governmental policy has con-
tinued to become increasingly
anti-Israel in its fawning upon
Arab oil sheikhs, its arms sales,
opposition to Camp David,
recognition of the Palestine
Liberation Organization .-. and
championing of a Euro-Arab
dialogue predicated upon 'a com-
prehensive settlement in the
Middle East.' "
THE REPORT then referred
to changing trends in French
public opinion. A July, 1976 poll
showed, it said, that 40 percent of
the public supported Israel; 4
percent the Arabs; and 24
percent were indifferent.
According to a "Paris Match"
poll in May, 1980, there was 18
percent public support for Israel;
10 percent for the Arabs; and 40
percent were indifferent.
Commenting on the rising
"indifference" factor, the report
said that until 1973 this was in
Israel's favor, but since then,
"Israel is perceived as an
According to the report, the
"12 Hours for Israel" rally in
Paris in April was a massive
manifestation of the French
Jews' relationship with Israel
and their political opposition to
their Government's policy.
"Almost 150,000 Jews," it
said, "heard an emergent young
leader, the lawyer Henri Hajden-
berg, declare to the media that
Jews were a lobby to be reckoned
with in the Presidential elections
in 1981.

history, has shocked the com-
munity's establishment and
heated up the debate in the press
on Jewish double loyalty and the

that "in the light of the growing
intensity and brutality of
resurgent anti-Semitism in
France, there is need for pro-
fessional documentation of data
and research into the inter-
national links between anti-
Semitic organizations in France
and the rest of Europe and the
United States."
A leaflet, carrying a swastika,
an anti-Jewish slogan in French
and a Nebraska post office box
number, was distributed last
month in the 17th arrondisse-
ment of Paris.
Within a week, the ADL had
provided the background in-
formation on Gary Lauck's
NSDAP neo-Nazi organization,
based in the United States and
West Germany, which was
responsible for the leaflet.
This material was used in
official representations on the
THE REPORT referred to the
annual rally of European neo-
Nazis organized by the Vlaamse
Militante Orde in Tour d'ljzer,
near Diksmuide, Belgium, at the
beginning of July and said that
"the delicate fabric of European
democracy is gravely threatened
by economic, social and political
"The common denominator in
France, as elsewhere, has not
changed. It is Jew-hatred,
whether in the guise of Leftist
anti-Zionism, Rightist anti-
Semitism or the Arab com-
bination of both."
The report said in conclusion
that French and European Jewry
was girding itself in an in-
creasingly difficult situation and
that it will be well served by the
galvanizing force of the ADL,
with 67 years of experience in
active counteraction against the
forces of anti-Semitism.

that, Saudi Arabia has not

CotnmeDtmg on the many
strong condemnations of the
ami- Semitic character of the
Oberammergau Passion Play
that appeared in critical reviews
in the German press following the
play s opening last month. Rabbi
Marc H. Tanenbaum. AJCs
national director of Interreligious
Affairs, expressed the belief that
"this %irtually unanimous
repudiation of anti-Jewish ideas
and images in this traditional
Passion Play by the most influ-
ential public opinion media in
Germany suggests that a major
educational achievement has
been realized in the struggle to
uproot the poisonous weeds of
anti Semitism in certain
traditions of medieval Christian
folk culture
The American Jewish Commit-
tee for the past three decades has
tned to persuade the citizens of
Oberammergau to abandon the
script written in 1850 by a local
priest, the Rev Joseph Alois
Daisenberger. which has been
used for more than a century, and
substitute one by the Rev Fer-
dinand Rosner. a Benedictine
priest, written in 1T50. In the
almost three and a half centuries
since the village began the
Passion Play tradition, it has
been performed in at least five
different versions
OVER THE years, rep-
resentatives of the AJC have
consulted with leaders of the
Oberammergau community and
with German government.
Catholic and Protestant church
leaders In the hopes of bringing
about positive changes in the
1980 production that would
conform with the best of con-
temporary scholarship. they
made four trips to Oberam-
mergau in the past two years
Four .AJC leaders attended the
opening performance of the play
last month, and reported on their
return that, despite a number of
significant changes in the script,
the present production could not
help but nurture and incite
hatred and contempt for Judaism
and the Jewish people.''
Among the many German
publications that supported this
view was the Suddeutsche Zei-
tung of Munich, regarded
generally as the most dis-
tinguished daily newspaper in
Bavaria. An article by Hannes
Burger in the issue of May 24
The I960 revision has cut
many of the controversial
paaaages, as the American
Jewish Committee's analysis
recognized. But the stubbornness
of the Oberammergauers and
their unwillingness to cooperate
with their Critics have allowed
only a half-hearted revision. No
clarifying passages or scenes
have been added; the true
motives of the Jewish authorities
are still not stated; the Jewish
law is still misrepresented, as are
the political circumstances;
Pilate remains a noble soul amid
the Jewish fanatics."
"HOW CAN one eliminate
hatred from the play," the Sud-
deutsche Zfitung queried, "as
long as the agenda of Christiana
and Jews are ignored, and as long
as Oberammergau looks on the
play ma no one's business but its
own, yet wants to keep it the
world s leading Pasaion Play?

tinued, "the people of Oberam-

The Schongauer Sachrichten
of May 27 also stressed the anti-
Semitism within certain
traditions of Christianity, stating
in an article of May 27 that
Daisenberger s text rests on the
anti-Semitic interpretation of the
Gospels in centuries past."
Bunt* IUustherte added that
Vatican II rejected the idea (of
Jewish collective guilt in the
death of Jesus), but Oberam-
mergau is not yet telling the
story accordingly."
SEVERAL OF the German
publications referred to the fact
that the American Jewish Com-
mittee had urged the citizens of
Oberammergau to replace the
Daisenberger script by the one
written by Rosner. The latter
depicts the events leading up to
Jesus death as a struggle be-
tween good and evil rather than
stressing the alleged collective
guilt of the Jews.
The Suddeutsche Zeitung
. wrote: Perhaps the likeliest way
to save the Oberammergau
tradition would be to develop the
Rosner text more satisfactorily
and try it out again during the
1984 anniversary season
Although the play is produced
traditionally every tea years, at
the beginning of a new decade, a
special performance is planned in
1984. which will mark the 350th
anniversary of ita first per-
formance in 1634, in fulfillment of
a vow made during a plague
epidemic the year before.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
The Future of U.S. Jewish Community
'60s to a current level of around
1990 the
prophets who saw a serious
decline in the American
Jewish population ten
years ago were wrong, and
those with the temerity to
foresee a decline ten years
hence will also be wrong,
according to Prof. Egon
Mayer, the sociologist.
But having said that, Mayer
ventured to tell the biennial con-
vention of the American Jewish
Congress here what the
American Jewish community
might look like in the 1990s
"who will be the Jews, what will
be the shape of the community,
what will be some of its prob-
lems, and how we can prepare for
solving them."
Mayer, who teaches sociology
at Brooklyn College, provided a
caveat, however: "Our pro-
jection about the future can be
only as accurate as our know-
ledge of the present, and I fear
that is not very accurate."
HOW MANY Jews are there
in the U.S.? The best estimate in
1970. he said, gave the figure of
5.400.000 people in Jewish
households, "plus an additional
4U0.O00 non-Jews in those
households. The latest figure
reported for 1980 is 5.860.900 in
Jewish households."
In short. Mayer said, "it
appears that in the past ten
years, we have not lost Jews, at
least as far as the existing
methods of counting are con-
"How many Jews there will be
in 1990 is, of course, difficult to
say. But I think it is important
to note the stability of the
population during a decade of
tremendous social turmoi in the
Jewish and general societ;
He pointed out that the
decade oi the '70s saw the inter-
marriage rate go above the one-
third figure, "a decade during
which 80 percent of college-age
Jews, men and women alike, had
gone to college, and a decade
during which the so-called
typical housewife' had become
THERE ARE more married
women, even with children, who
are in the labor force than there
are women who tend only to
hearth and home." he declared.
Mayer recalled that Eliyahu
Bergman predicted in 1977 that
by the year 2076. America's
Jews may number as few as
10.420. "If Bergman were
correct, then between 1970 and
1980 the American. -Jewish

population should have declined
by about half a million people,
and by 1990 it should decline by
another half million," he sai.
"Since there is no evidence of
such a dramatic decline for the
past decade, I would brave the
guess that when we meet again
in 1990, we will still be speaking
of about six million Jews in the
"However," he went on, "they
will be quite different in com-
position from the Jews of today.
About three-fourths will have
had the benefit of a college edu-
cation with maybe a third of
these having gone on to obtain
advanced graduate degrees."
IN TERMS of the socio-
economic patterns of the com-
munity, this decade "will wit-
ness the decline of the entre-
preneur as the modal Jewish
occupation and the rise of the
professional bureaucratized
In terms of age. Mayer
estimates that the under-30
group will shrink from the
current 44 percent to about 39
percent, while the 30-65 age
group will increase from about
41 percent to 46 percent, and the
over-65 group will increase from
about 13 percent to about 15
'Ill other words," he ex-
plained, not only will all of us
grow older, but more of us will
be older than younger."
From these figures. Mayer
allowed himself some guesses as
to trends within the Jewish
"FOR EXAMPLE," he said,
"in the area of Jewish education,
we have found that the number
of Jewish children in Hebrew
schools has dropped from a high
of around 600.000 in the early
400,000. Because by
children of the post-war babies
should be reaching Bar-Bat
Mitzvah time, we may expect
if educators don't throw in the
towel in the meantime that
there will be once again a boom
in Hebrew shool enrollment."
Mayer called attention to con-
temporary developments which,
he said, could not have been pre-
dicted ten years ago. In the area
of Jewish education, "Jewish
studies programs on college
campuses were truly a rarity m
1970. In 1972, when B'nai B'rith
published its first catalogue on
such programs, it listed a total
of 329 schools with 40 ofering
either a major and/or a
graduate degree in Jewish
"By 1979, the number of col-
leges had increased to 337. and
the number offering a major or
graduate training in Jewish
studies had increased to 130."
Mayer noted that "one of the
great ironies of the decade of the
'70s was the reversal of the con-
ventional wisdom about the
college campus as the great
rauldron of Jewish acculturation.
While it has undoubtedly
clayed that role for a great
lumber of young Jews, it has
ilso begun to play the very
>pposite role for a great many
oungJews who had their first
serious encounter with Jewish
cholarship, not in a yeshiva and
lot in a synagogue but on an
American secular college
campus," he said.
reversal "cannot be easily under-
estimated when we look at such
direct spinoffs as the chavurot
(religious fellowship) movement
and the pressure for equalization
of the status of women in syna-
gogue life.

south, and it was from there that
he sent back information as to
