Alleged Crimes in Ukraine
May Lead to Deportation
Deportation could be the final
step for a 71-year-old man who
"actively participated in beatings
and executions of unarmed |
Jewish civilians" in the Ukraine
during World War II, according
to federal authorities. The
allegations were made against
Michael Derkacz by the Justice
Department in Federal District
Court in Brooklyn as it began a
civil suit to revoke his citizen-
Derkacz, a retired window
washer from Queens, N.Y.
became a naturalized American
citizen five years after he entered
the United States in 1949 by
having "willfully misrepresented
and concealed his service" in the
Ukrainian police unit, the Justice
Department charged.
DEPORTATION to the Soviet
Union, where Derkacz' alleged
crimes occurred, is a possibility if
the proceedings to strip himself
of his U.S. citizenship are suc-
Allan Ryan, Jr., director of the
Justice Department's Office of
Special Investigation currently
investigating about 300
suspected war criminals, reported
that the Derkacz case is the tenth
in which this special unit has
tried to revoke the citizenship of
a war criminal.
When reached at his home,
Derkacz called the Justice
Department's allegations "an
honest-to-God lie" and claimed
that he "protected the people
(Jews) from-the Germans."

parliament overwhelmingly
approved legislation last week
declaring united Jerusalem to be
the nation's capital, defying
international protests that the
law threatens to derail the
Mideast peace process.
The bill was adopted 69-15,
with three abstentions, after
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin s coalition and the Labor
Party, the largest opposition
group, combined to defeat two
dozen amendments.
ISRAEL has considered
Jerusalem its capital since the
foundation of the Jewish state in
1948, and it annexed the Arab-
populated eastern sector to the
rest of Jerusalem after seizing it
from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast
No country has recognized
Israel's claim, however, and all
but 13 nations maintain their
embassies in Tel Aviv.
Venezuela, one of those 13,
announced last week it was
moving its embassy from
Jerusalem to Tel Aviv in order to
remain neutral.
The United States says the
future of Jerusalem must be
decided in Middle East peace
negotiations, not by Israel alone,
and most nations follow that line.
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat called the vote an act
"against the spirit and workings
of Camp David," but refused to
say whether Egypt would
suspend negotiations with Israel
on Palestinian self-rule. Egypt
had said earlier it was con-
sidering such a move.
ISRAEL has rejected any
suggestion that the city not be
under its complete control, and
has gradually tightened its grip
on East Jerusalem by moving
government offices there and
building Jewish housing projects.

judgment of military leaders and
Congress was that a men-only
system best serves national
Pointing to studies that show
that women volunteer in suf-
ficient numbers to fill the
positions open to them, the
report stated it was thus not
necessary to draft women. The
report said that since a draft
would be based on a random
selection from the pool of
registrants, in time of national
emergency when men would be
needed quickly for combat, an
equal number of men and women
would have to be called up.
Moreover, sexually integrated
units would create great dif-
ficulty for military planners with
respect to combat deployment,
according to the report.
THE REPORT also referred to
the impact registering and draft-
ing women would have on the
family unit and maintained that a
decision on this question is
properly within the purview of
Dennis Rapps, executive
director of COLPA, who is
serving as an attorney for the

would continue to work

The Silent Terror
It takes a heap of guts to throw a hand grenade
at a group of youngsters as they are boarding a bus
to go off to summer camp. Yet that is what a
Lebanese terrorist did in Belgium on Sunday.
This must. be seen in the context of the
"debate" for a Palestinian state which the General
Assembly of the United Nations just staged, and
which resulted in a resolution calling for just about
everything except the outright extermination of
Why not that? Because no mention of Israel
was necessary. The resolution's demands for with-
drawal, secession and concession on Israel's part are
so sweeping that they amount to the same thing.
There will, of course, be no mention in the
Communist and Third World Parliament of Puppets
of the terrorist outrage in Belgium on Sunday.
The New Expediency
But what of the Europeans, who through the
last 2,000 years of their history have been killing
Jews en masse as a matter of course, with but a
momentary pause in their pattern since the end of
World War II?
What about the Europeans, who are by now
bored with a life devoid of Jew-killing and who have
joined ranks once again in their common cause? Will
there be no word from them?
We write these words on the eve of the General
Assembly vote on the latest Palestine resolution,and
it is a safe bet that the resolution will pass by the
crude consent of crude Communist and Third World
It is a less safe bet, but certainly likely, that
the European Economic Community members will
say "nay" because the. resolution fails to mention
Israel's right to exist. But this is mere cosmetics.
In the scheme of things today, Israel is the
heavy for a Western world that has so obviously
and pathetically failed to learn a single lesson from
the betrayal of Czechoslovakia at Munich. And so
the terrorist children who were off to Camp in
Belgium need no mention either not from the
likes of those in the ranks of the New Expediency.
A Medieval Legacy
Was it worth all the effort to try to change the
anti-Semitic character of the Oberammergau
Passion Play?
A series of recent developments both in Ger-
many and in the United States argue that the effort
to revise the 1980 production has in fact resulted in
a number of quite substantial positive develop-
First, a survey of the West German is,
radio, and TV just completed by the An :an
Jewish Committee discloses that there has 1> "a
virtually unanimous repudiation of the am i vvish
ideas and images in the Obeiammergau Passion
Play by the most influential public opinion media in
Second, as far back us January, 1980, the U.S.
Army Chaplain Corps in Europe informed the AJC
by letter that it was "now extricating chapels and
chaplains from selling tickets to the Passion Play"
for all American military personnel in Europe.
And finally, a number of major U.S. travel
agents, university alumni groups, and churches are
distributing widely our studies detailing the anti-
Jewish themes in the Passion Play in order to
immunize tourists against its prejudicial virus.

through such education programs they will work

Volume 2 Number 16
In a major policy statement
Ivan J. Novick, president of tht
Zionist Organization of America,
charged that certain American
Jewish leaders and organizations
have unwittingly been victimized
by a "semantic propaganda cam-
paign" which is not only anti-
govemment, but is in fact anti-
Israel in its end result.
Said Novick, it is time that
the American Jewish community
take a long, deep and penetrating
look at what has been happening
around and within us. We must
not permit false issues to deceive
us. discourage us or disunite us."
SPEAKING before a dis-
tinguished audience of Israeli and
American officials and leaders
and representatives of all maw
Israeli media, in Zoa House-Tel
Aviv, Wednesday, June 25,
Novick stated: "If public opinion
has a growing doubt about
Israel's commitment to peace, if
it has difficulty in understanding
the dangers posed by a separate
Palestinian state, and if the link
between Israel's security needs
and the issue of settlements is
not understood, we cannot blame
it only on Arab propaganda.
"I question Jewish leaders who
charge American Jews for being
too emotional." When Israel is
threatened, when the Jewish
position is in jeopardy, when
Jerusalem is at stake, when Eretz
Yisrael is surrounded by a sea of
hatred, I become emotional,"
said Novick.
He added, "To me this is an
emotional issue. I will not
apologize to certain sensitive
Jews who believe that it is un-
becoming if my Christian neigh-
bors see the extent of my
emotionalism because of my love
for the Jewish people and concern
for its future.
"Il is regrettable," said
Novick, "that certain Jewish
organizations, professionals and
leaders, spend so much time
debating "false issues' instead of
working to interpret them to
others Israel should not be
expected to change its policies,
either to make the work easier for
its friends, to accommodate the
media or to capitulate to State
Department policy.'" Said
Novick, "We should respect the
independence of the Jewish State
and should not permit ourselves
to be used as tools to attack it.
"I BELIEVE free people of the
democratcy of Israel alone have
the right to determine their vital
interests with respect to security
and peace. There is no need for
Jews to stifle their opinions, said
Novick, "but these should be
conveyed in a responsible way
that will produce positive results.
There is little difference between
the harm done Israel by
American Jews attacking Israeli
policy in the public media and
Israeli leaders and personalities
who express their views which
are misconstrued and misunder-
stood by an uninformed
American public or capitalized
upon by unfriendly elements."
Novick issued an appeal to
those who criticize Israel to be
aware of the reaction in the non-
Jewish world. Said Novick,
"What glee there must be in the
Arab world! What sarcasm must
there be in the Soviet orbit! What
sinister pleasure must be exper-
ienced by certain elements in the
State Department, as Jews in the
U.S. or in Israel seek to outshout
each other on the state of the
public platform! Is this the best
we sophisticated Jews can do?
Continued Novick, "I do not
ask for silence. I only ask for
statesmanship, self-discipline,
more awareness of the con-
sequences of what is being said
and the consequences of what
happens when every word is
examined, taken out of context,
Ivan Novick
blown out of proportion' and
effectively utilized to inflict a
damaging impression of the
Jewish State, its government and
its people. I do not speak of
issues, nor do I speak of parties
or personalities. I speak only of
good common sense, and a sense
of responsibility."
In a sharp challenge to the
"Peace Now Movement'* in the
United States and in Israel,
Novick said. "Your basic premise
is not only faulty but it is also
used to do Israel immeasurable
"YOUR very slogan 'Peace
Now' implies that there are those
Jews who seek peace and all
others are anti-peace. You
criticize the government of Israel
that its policies make the 'work of
rejectionists easier' and I ask
are your actions conducive to
influencing them to be more
accommodating? You suggest
that Israel's policy impedes any
eventual agreement with the
Palestinians' and I ask do you
see in the recent Al-Fatah PLO
statement a readiness to accept
Israel regardless of the party in
power? You call upon Israel to
conduct negotiations with any
Palestinian body that renounces
terrorism' as though you were in
a position to produce such Arab
negotiators prepared to accept
the path of peace."
Said Novick. Those who
suggest that any Israeli govern-
ment, any Israeli leader or any
Israeli political party does not
eek true peace, not only under-
mine Israel's image, but do harm
to all the Jewish people.
In the United States, I hear
voices that call for dissent.' We
have heard them before. It ap-
pears that to be sophisticated,'
Jews must lie more 'objective' in
dealing with issues which even
affect their well-being. I reject
the notion that dissent tests our
ability to view problems with
intelligence and proper per-
spective. I reject the notion that
dissent' is the burning issue'
before the Jewish people. As
Jews, we do have a self-interest
that cannot be denied, but I
suggest that this coincides with
the values that are shared with
most of our fellow citizens. All of
us believe in a strong America
that will remain a free America, a
nation and people respected by a
world that seeks peace.
"INSTEAD of dissent,' I urge
that we place our emphasis on
what unites ua as Americans, as
Jews and as Zionists. Thus, we
have many urgent concerns:
the Jewish people in

especially in the Soviet Union
and now in Iran

Maxwell House* Coffee
Is After Shopping Relaxation.
Shopping for a "good buy" has be-
come one of America's favorite pas-
times. It's always fun to find new
things, see the new fashions and
perhaps pick up something new for
the house or family.
Another favorite pastime is to come
home from shopping, kick off the
shoes and relax with a good cup of
coffee. Maxwell House* Coffee. The
full-pleasant aroma and great-
tasting, satisfying flavor is
the perfect ending
to a busy shop-
ping day. Espe-
cially when
relaxing with
a close friend. The good talk. The
good feelings. The warmth are some
of the things that go along with
Maxwell House* Perhaps that's why
many Jewish housewives don't 'shop'
for Maxwell House? They simply
buy it. It's the "smart buy" as any
balabusta knows!
So, no matter what your prefer-
ence instant or ground when
you pour Maxwell House? you pour
relaxation. At its best... consis-
tently cup after cup after cup.

Fridy, An
Ritual Circumsicion Permitted
A Manhattan hospital,
which had refused the
Orthodox father of a new-
born son his request for a
ritual circumsicion by a
mohel in the hospital,
permitted the rite to be
performed in response to a
court mandate described as
the first time a court has
ever ordered any American
hospital to permit that rite.
The problem for the Orthodox
father developed when his wife
gave birth to the boy by
Caesarean section on July 3 in
Lenox Hill Hospital. Because of
complications following the
delivery, the couple was told that
the mother would be required to
remain in the hospital beyond the
eighth day of the infant's life
when, according to Jewish Law,
the rite must be performed.
religiously critical for the
Brooklyn parents when hospital
officials, citing a hospital rule
banning performance of medical
procedures by anyone other than
a staff doctor or one affiliated
with the hospital, said a ritual
circumciser (mohel) could not
perform the rite in the hospital.
The infant could not be taken out
of the hospital for the rite
because a state law forbids the
return of an infant to a hospital
nursery once the infant is
removed from the hospital.
The father, who requested
anonymity, is an attorney who is
a member of the National Jewish
Commission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA). When it
became apparent, from the
hospital's negative reaction, that
court action might be needed, the
father met with Dennis Rapps,
COLPA executive director, and
State Assemblyman Sheldon
Silver (D., Manhattan), who is
also a COLPA member, Rapps
told the Jewish Telegraphic
The father called Silver and
Rapps Tuesday evening, July 8,
reporting he expected to have by
11 a.m. the next day the
seventh day of his son's life a
definitive statement from
hospital officials required by the
legal proceedings.
WHEN THE father informed
the two COLPA members at
noon Wednesday that the
hospital officials remained
adamantly opposed, the COLPA
attorneys immediately began
preparation of an order to the
hospital to show cause why it
should not permit a mohel to
perform the rite in the hospital,
plus a supporting petition.
Rapps explained that the
papers had to be filed to require
hospital officials to appear in
court to justify their refusal.
Because of the time factor, Rapps
said, he knew that he and Silver
would have to submit their legal
documents promptly to Special
Term Part II of the State
Supreme Court in Manhattan,
the customary court for initiating
such actions.
Seeking the name of the justice
who would be presiding in Special
Term Part II on Thursday the
eighth day they learned it
would be Acting State Supreme
Court Justice Herman Cahn.
They also learned Cahn had been
assigned to sit in small claims
court that Wednesday evenine.
THE COLPA attorneys met
with Cahn that evening and
described their problem. Cahn
directed that the Lenox Hill
Hospital be notified immediatley
that he would hear the father's
petition the next morning. He
also ordered Silver and Rapps to
appear in the clerk's office of the
court on the next day
Thursday at 9:30 a.m. to file
their papers, which was done.
An hour later, Silver and
Rapps and the attorneys for the
hospital presented their positions
to Cahn. He ruled that the hos
pital must admit the mohel,
basing that ruling on a provision
of the New York State Public
Health Law which requires pro-
tection of both the civil and
religious rights of patients.
Rapps noted that only four
New York City hospitals have
such bans on ritual circumcisers.
For the other hospitals, a list is
maintained of ritual circumcisers
who are medically qualified.
CAHN ISSUED his order at
2:30 p.m. the same day. The
hospital attorneys immediately
sought a stay of Cahn's order,
which would have made the issue
academic, or. in legal language,
moot, since a stay would have
meant that the ritual cir-
cumcision could not have been
performed in the hospital that
day the eighth.
The appeals court, after
hearing arguments from 5 p.m. to
6:15 p.m.. denied a stay. The
hospital attorneys then called the
hospital to inform hospital of-
ficials that the operation by a
mohel would have to be per-
mitted under court order. The rite
was performed at 7 p.m. that
evening of the eighth day by a
mohel with whom the father had
made prior arrangements.
Rapps, asked what would have
happened if the hospital request
for a stay had been granted, said
that arrangements had been
made for the father to take the
child out of the hospital to have
the rite performed at a nearby
synagogue, those arrangements
also having been made in ad-

Jews in Wake Of
Attack on Teen-Agers
Jewish communal insti-
tutions throughout
Belgium have been granted
special round-the-clock po-
lice protection following
Sunday's attack against a
group of Jewish teen-agers
in Antwerp which resulted
in the death of a 15-year-
old boy and the wounding
of 17.
The attacker, a man
carrying Moroccan travel
documents, hurled two
grenades at a group of 40
children waiting to board a
bus for summer camp.
PARIS-BORN David Kohane,
whose parents had just driven
him to Antwerp Community
Center and were still present
when the attack took place, was
killed on the spot. Close to 20
children were wounded, 17
seriously, and six of them are
still in a critical condition. Most
of the parents, members of the
Agudat Israel and generally
employed in the diamond in-
dustry, saw the attack and then
helped chase the assailant.
When pinned down by the
parents and Belgian police who
had joined in the chase, the man
said: "I want to be judged
within the framework of the
Arab-Israeli conflict. They
(apparently meaning the
Israelis) kill our children as
well." The man. believed to be
Lebanese, was carrying i

ment, a group of internationally
eminent women, including
several political figures, artists,
authors and actresses, signed a
statement that appealed to the
participants at the international
women's conference in Copen-
hagen to end politicization of the
conference and to "preserve its
universal character.''
Among those who signed the
statement were Simone de Beau-
voir, Louise Nevelson, Madeleine
Renaud, Beverly Sills and Bella
Abzug. Other women, from the
United States, included Colleen
Dewhurst, Betty Friedan,
Shelley Winters, Ann Jackson,
Ann Meara, Jacqueline Grennan
Wexler, Bess Meyerson, Eugenie
Anderson and Reps. Beverly
Byron (D., Md.), Marjorie Holt
(R., Md.) and Margaret Heckler
The statement, which was
released to the media on an inter-
national basis, was initiated in
France by a group of women
aware that certain agenda items
would overshadow the original
intent of the conference and turn
the event into an. explosive
political forum. Among the
countries represented in the list
of signatories were Australia,
Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada,
Costa Rica, Denmark, Federal
Republic of Germany, Ecuador,
Finland, Great Britain, Italy,
Japan, Mexico, Norway,
Panama, Portugal, Uruguay,
U.S. and Venezuela.
THE APPEAL "to all par-
ticipants," stated: "This con-
ference provides us with the
opportunity to make known our
views on questions which pre-
occupy women: social life,
equality, education, health and
employment. We know that
actions are envisaged to use this

diverting it from its initial aims.

this encounter. It is to be hoped

In addition, the National
Coalition of American Nuns

"to women of all faiths to join

it is supposed to be an op-
portunity for women to dialogue
about the women's agenda."
The appeal, signed by Sister
Margaret Traxler and Sister Ann

Coalition's executive board and
delegates to the conference,
added, in part: "NCAN deplores

In the Knesset debate. David
Glass, chairman of the Law

"But when the wheels began to

on its negative political impact.
The Laborites and Begin s

Passion Play Windfall For Ticket Scalpe
~.iic frw Qiihstantial reform of ,,... k_ ,

West Germany's run-away
hit this summer, a windfall
for ticket scalpers and
black marketeers and an
apparent vindication of
Oberammergau's Mayor
Ernst Zwink who opposed
changes in the text to re-
move anti-Semitic material
on grounds that the play in
its present form was a
commercial success.
The controversial production,
depicting the suffering of Jesus,
has been performed in Oberam-
mergau at the beginning of every
decade since 1680 and is of major
economic importance to that
Bavarian village. Long regarded
as a source of blatant anti-
Semitism, blaming Jews
collectively for the crucifixion,
the text has been toned down
American Jewish Committee, the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith and other Jewish
and non-Jewish sources, it is still
rampant with anti-Jewish bias,
rooted in a tradition of hostility
and contempt toward Jews and
Zwink was elected mayor two
years ago on a platform rejecting
calls for substantial reform of
the text. Lately, he has noted
that the success of the current
version proved that the text
should not be tampered with.

Q: Who picked up the telephone
before Alexander Graham Bell did?
A: Johann Philipp Reis.
Reis is listed in THE BOOK OF FIRSTS as
number one to publicly demonstrate the
telephone He did this in front of a group of
scientists in 1861fifteen years before Bell got
a patent Because of illness and a lack of funds.
Reis was unable to capitalize on his invention.
Bell knew of his work as d:d Edison who even
toyed with Reis' ideas On March 22. 1876.
twelve days after Bell's first intelligible speech
transmission, the NEW YORK TIMES ran an
editorial entitled The Telephone'. The editorial
was all about Philipp Reis. Not one word about
Bell. Even the U.S. Government brought suit
against Bell for: "claiming the invention of
something already widely known to exist-in the
form of the Reis 'telephone' and also with
somehow concealing the latter from the Patent
Office's expert examiner in that field'.' Bell of
course, survived the lawsuits and the challenges
but physicists built a monument to Reis as the
inventor of the telephone (Better he should
have won the lawsuits.)

Swiss Cemetery
Is Desecrated
GENEVA-(JTA)-The old
Jewish cemetery of Carouge in
Geneva has been desecrated here.
Several tombstones were
overturned and sprayed with
slogans "death to the Jews,"
"your dead shall never rest in
peace" and "Hitler's lesson has
not been forgotten." The word
Jude and large swastikas were
drawn on many of the tomb-
The Geneva police department
was alerted by an anonymous
phone caller who said; "The
Nazis are still active. Go and see
the cemetery in Carouge."
THE POLICE department has
opened an investigation, but a
department spokesman said that
it was too early to determine who
desecrated the cemetery. The
police think it may be a political
act, but do not rule out that it
may have been committed by
emotionally disturbed people.
While the Swiss police want to
minimize the importance of the
incident, Israeli circles in
Switzerland connect this act with
the desecration of the Jewish
cemetery in Basel two months
Glass said the Knesset should
make every effort to complete
the legislative process. He
acknowledged that many
Knesset members are unhappy
with the entire initiative but said
there was no point in delaying
the bill. '
Although Begin stressed that
the bill represented the con-
sensus in Israel, many MKs and
others who support its principles
deplored its timing as unneces-
sarily provocative.
ONLY 77 of the Knesset's 120
members were on hand for the
vote. A large number of Labor
MKs absented themselves to
avoid the dilemma of supporting
a measure they considered
untimely or which violated party
discipline. But many Laborites
voted in favor of the bill which
had the official support of the

Luxembourg Minister Reminds
EEC Israel Has Right to Exist
rights was still the basis for a
Middle East settlement.
Foreign Minister Gaston
Thorn of Luxembourg, speaking
on behalf of the European Eco-
nomic Community. (EEC), has
said that the two basic realities in
the Middle East situation are the
State of Israel and the rights of
the Palestinian people and that
these must be reconciled.
Thorn spoke on the third day
of the General Assembly's special
emergency session to consider
the Palestinian problem. His
remarks were in sharp contrast to
the extreme anti-Israel state-
ments heard in the debates so far.
He said that the EEC has fol-
lowed "with great anxiety" the
turn of events in the Middle East
and that they believe it is more
necessary now than ever before to
take an active role in bringing a
solution to the Middle East
month's Venice declaration by
the heads of state of the nine
EEC member countries. He said
that all nations have the right to
live within secure borders. He
said that the Palestinian problem
was not one of refugees and that
the Palestinians had a right to
self-determination. The nine
member states of the EEC, he
added, are convinced that no
peaceful solution can be achieved
in the Middle East without
Israel's withdrawal from all
occupied Arab territories.
Thorn said the EEC also
believed that any resolution
placed before this General
Assembly session should refer to
Security Council Resolution 242
which though flawed because
it failed to recognize Palestinian
He said, however, that the
draft resolution currently under
preparation here by the Arab
states and their supporters "did
not appear to be one that will
contribute to a peaceful
solution." He said that the EEC
nine would decide how to vote in
accordance with the principles he
had enunciated. He added that
the precondition of peace was a
climate of confidence that
avoided all forms of extremism.
DIPLOMATS and observers
here said they believed the EEC
countries will abstain when the
resolution is introduced in the
General Assembly.
Addressing the emergency
session Soviet Ambassador Oleg
Troyanovsky sharply attacked
Israel and the United States and
warned that as a result of Israel's
"aggressive" policies, the Middle
East has become "a tinder box"
which could endanger world
He charged that the U.S.
"veto" in the Security Council
had prevented the UN from
adopting policies that could end
the suffering of the Palestinian
Arabs. Instead, Troyanovsky
said, the U.S. has repeatedly
supported Israel in its policy of
aggression and territorial ex-
HE ACCUSED Israel of
plundering the territory of its
Arab neighbors for 30 years.
Israel's settlement policy on the
West Bank could lead to the
increase of the Israeli population
there to 150,000, he said, and the
Israeli authorities have wrongly
intensified the process of "legal-
izing" Jerusalem as the "un-
divided" capital of Israel.

U.S.-Saudi RelationsBurgeon
i .. .L!___i-__.____^nJ^ i/th! nnu.'___----------* tallfQ fthnUt &
London Chronicle Syndicate
Saudi Arabia is the world's
leading oil producer and
exporter. Oil accounts for
over 99 percent of the
country's exports. Proven
reserves are estimated at a
staggering 173 billion
barrels one quarter of all
proven world reserves.
Those kinds of figures
have an impact on U.S.
policy. Relations between
America and Saudi Arabia
have been close since the
1940s, when U.S. oil
companies first helped to
dpvelop the Saudi market.
But in recent years, the
relationship has expanded to the
point where over 40.000
Americans work in Saudi Arabia
today. Over 400 American firms
have established themselves in
the Kingdom.
FROM THIS extraordinary
concentration of the world's oil
supplies flows so much of U.S.
policy toward Saudi Arabia, the
Arab-Israeli conflict and the
Middle East.
This has been demonstrated in
many ways, most recently during
the screening on American
television of Death of a Princess,
the documentary which the
Saudis regarded as offensive. The
controversy which surrounded
the movie seemed to dominate
U.S. editorial writers and
commentators for days as a wave
of fear spread throughout the
United States that the Saudis
might retaliate by cutting back
their oil production.
It is reflected in the State
Department's annual human
rights report on Saudi Arabia.
Even before Death of a Princess.
the Saudis made no secret of their
deep resentment of any external
criticism. As a result, they
always received kid glove
treatment in the reports. "By
origin tribal," the most recent
document said. "Saudi Arabian
society is basically egalitarian
and individualistic. Saudis have a
finely drawn and intensely felt
traditional sense of justice.''
IT IS also reflected in the-
burgeoning U.S. Saudi military
relationship. Oil wealth has had a
tremendous impact in enabling
the Saudis to sign massive
military contracts with the
United Slates Officials here in
Washington estimate that these
contracts have totaled more than
$20 billion in recent years, much
of it going to develop a solid
infrastructure of airfields, roads,
port facilities and com-
munications networks.
There are more than 1.000
American military and civilian
defense officials in Saudi Arabia,
along with an additional 2,000
employees of private U.S. defense
contractors. Americans are
largely in charge of training and
maintaining the Saudi army,
navy and air force.
It was Saudi Arabia's desire
two years ago to purchase 60 F-
15 fighter bombers the most
advanced in the U.S. Air Force
which resulted in probably the
most controversial U.S. arms sale
in American history. The Senate
approved the Carter
Administration's "package" sale,
which also included planes for
F-gypt and Israel, by a vote of 54-
to-44. But the battle scars remain
to this very day.
THE FIRST of those F-15's is
not scheduled to reach Saudi
Arabia until sometime next year,
but the Saudis are still pressing
now for some advanced "extras"
which the Carter Administration
had refused to authorize as part
of the original sale.
According to U.S. officials, the
Saudis are asking U.S. approval
of the accessories as a "test case"
last thing Carter needs right now
is another fight with Congress.
Privately, the White House is

increasingly nervous about
stability in Saudi Arabia,
although the latest U.S. in-

What aroused everyone in
Washington was the December,
1979 takeover of the Grand
Mosque in Mecca. After looking
into the incident as closely as
possible, the American
Intelligence community con-
cluded that some 250 ultra
conservative Saudi Moslems
were involved.
The best thinking among the
Americans was that militants
were anxious to protest the ef-
fects of modernization on Saudi
Arabia. Most were said to be
Saudis, with some Egyptian and
Yemenites also participating.

known to Saudi internal security

Young Mamby he's 32 years
old has become the super light-
weight of the world rather late in
his boxing career. Although he is
strong and feels like a kid of 19,
for a fighter, 32 is considered
passe. Nevertheless, Mamby in
his recent defense of his title,
fighting on the under card to the
Holmes-LeDoux heavyweight
championship held in Min-
neapolis, wallopped the daylights
out of his opponent. At this
writing he has a record of 29
wins, 12 losses and five draws.
MAMBY HAS been fighting
16 years, two as an amateur and
the other 14 in the pro ranks. He
said that he'll continue to pursue
his career so long as "God
permits me." He is a firm believer
in the Almighty and feels that his
destiny is wrapped up in what the
man upstairs wants him to do.
A veteran of the Vietnam War,
where he served one year and six
days, he can give you the exact
minutes and seconds, Mamby is a
believer in fate. I pointed out to
him that a heavyweight
champion was slated to fight an
exhibition match in Israel in the
not too distant past, and he
cancelled out at the last minute
because of a flare-up on the
Lebanese border. Mamby said:
"I can see where he would be
frightened off by that sort of
thing, but after surviving
Vietname for over a year, I'm
willing and ready to go to Israel
to defend my title. Just get me a
nice Jewish competitor over
there, or bring in a fighter who is
ranked highly in my weight, and
I '11 be glad to perform my duties

The young fighter explained
that he is a Jew by conversion.
"First my mother converted, and
then my father converted, and
subsequently I was brought into
the faith. I attended Hebrew
school in The Bronx on Boston
Road. All my classmates were
Black, and we were taught by an
Elder who was attached to the
late Rabbi Matthew's synagogue.
I learned how to read Hebrew,
and I started the studying of the
Bible in Hebrew," the pugilist
HE ATTENDED, as a youth,
the synagogue every Sabbath
and was brought up in, what he
terms, a kosher home. To this
very day, he does not mix meat
and dairy food at any given meal.
He remembers very well that his
mother observed this tradition
very cautiously, and he still
maintains the belief, to an extent,
in kashruth. He does not eat any
pig products or shell fish.
"I don't attend services with
any regularity, mainly because
I'm not located near a synagogue
where I live uptown,' Mamby
explained. "I once walked quite a
distance to attend High Holy
Day services, but I was turned
off by the fact that the gentleman
at the door wanted me to pay to
"I felt and feel now that people
should be free to attend any
denomination without having to
pay to enter. If I want to make a
contribution to a synagogue
and / or a chuch, I would do it out
of faith and desire, not out of
I TRIED to explain to Mamby
that since attendances at
synagogue are heavy only on the
High Holidays, the temples have
to adhere to the practice of
charging for tickets to the ser-
vices. Mamby just wouldn't buy
this type of thinking.
Why did Mamby's success
come along so late in his career?
He believes that had he per-
mitted himself to be exploited as
a Jewish fighter he might have
made it much sooner. He
definitely refused to be shown off
as a Jewish pugilist, particularly
in Miami where there is a
plethora of Jewish boxing fans. It
was suggested that he wear chai
necklaces and a Magen David on
his trunks, and he refused to do
Consequently, it is his belief
that he was held back by his
refusal to exploit his Judaism,
something several fighters, white
and Black, have done, albeit they
are not anywhere near the Jewish
individual that our current super
lightweight champion is. He's a
pleasure and a delight to talk to,

Groups Want
Citizenship Revoked
A number of Jewish
organizations have asked
the U.S. Supreme Court to
uphold a decision revoking
the citizenship of a former
Nazi death camp guard
who admitted lying about
his wartime past.
A friend of the court brief, filed
jointly by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, the
American Jewish Committee, the
American Federation of Jewish
Fighters. Camp Inmates and
Nazi Victims, and the National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council pointed out
that Feodor Fedorenko. in failing
to disclose his service as a
Treblinka camp guard had
avoided an investigation that
would have almost certainly
barred him from this country
INSTEAD. Fedorenko. a
resident ot Florida, was able to
live in this country for 29 years,
avoiding being called to account
for his Treblinka activities.
During the time that
Fedorenko was a guard at
Treblinka.' Seymour Reich.
chairman of ADL's Civil Rights
Committee, quoted the brief as
saying, "three quarters of a
million Jews were killed. We
speak for these Jews and submit
that a just result in this case is
vita! to insure that their memory
and the horror of Treblinka and
the Holocaust are not forgotten."
A U.S. district court judge in
Florida ruled in 1978 that
Fedorenko could keep his
citizenship despite his coverup
which occurred twice, once when
he applied for a visa to enter the
U.S. in 1949 and the second time,
in 1970. when he applied for
FEDORENKO claimed he
didn't know Jews were being
killed at Treblinka and denied
testimony by six Israeli sur-
vivors that they had seen him
torture and shoot prisoners there
during his one-year service as a
guard. He said he had been a
farmer in Poland from 1937 to
1942. when he went to Germany
to work as a laborer for the
duration of the war
The lower court's decision was
re\ t-rsed by the U.S. Fifth Circuit
Court of Appeals, which ordered
that Fedorenko's citizenship be
revoked. He then appealed to the
Supreme Court, where the case
will be argued in the court's fall
In a statement accompanying
the brief. ADL said the "case
presents a serious challenge to
the capacity of the United States
government to fulfill its im-
migration and naturalization
functions, as well as to the
process by which Nazi war
criminals are brought to justice."

that platforms are meaning-

Ime reporters felt support for
Israel in platforms was the usual
stance for electioneering pur-
poses. "No news in that," one
said. "Wait until next winter,"
another remarked. "It will be
news if the President, new or old,
backs up the platform." But the
major question remains: If the

attacked should it not be in-
formed when Israel is defended?
THE 93 JEWISH delegates
among the 1,994 delegates at the
Republican convention were
divided like the others over Vice
Presidential candidates. For
example, in the Connecticut
delegation, Robert Katz, of
Bridgeport, favored New York
Representative Jack Kemp, while

backed George Bush. A sig-
nificant fact about the size of the
Jewish number of delegates is
that it formed about 4.5 percent

The right and liberal wings of
the Republican leadership were
both represented at the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee's
reception for Jewish delegates
and others at the Detroit Plaza
Hotel. Of the approximately 350
that attended there were at least
a dozen Senators and a score of
Representatives. The chief at-
traction included Elizabeth
Taylor, accompanied by her
husband, Virginia Senator John
Warner, and Mrs. Strom Thur-
mond, wife of the conservative
South Carolina Senator who
could not attend.
Another guest was Philadel-
phia's Arlen Spector, who may
make it this time to the U.S.
Senate. In his previous state-
wide Pennsylvania races he lost
in 1978 for Governor to incum-
bent Richard Thorburgh, and in
1976 for Senator to John Heinz.
This time, pollsters say, Spec-
tor's chances against former
Pittsburgh Mayor Peter
Flaherty, a Democrat, are ex-
cellent. They are campaigning for
the seat being vacated by Repub-
lican Richard Schweiker, a friend
of Israel. David Garth, a master
at political strategy, is helping
Spector's campaign.
Spector, a district attorney in
Philadelphia for eight years and a
counsel for the Warren Commis-
sion that probed President Ken-
nedy's assassination, will be
Pennsylvania's first Jewish
Senator if he wins. He is on the
board of Orthodox Mikvah Israel

During the GOP convention,

Since the Republicans have never
before held their national con-
clave in Detroit, and since
Reagan was their unquestioned
leader, one suspected that the top
honor would go to one of three
mentioned. But no, indeed.
The Monthly Detroit, a slick
200-page magazine selling for
$1.50 a copy, devoted the cover of
its July issue to "Max Fisher
Power Broker." It showed him
smiling, spectacled, thinning
gray hair and wearing a white
shirt, blue tie and white handker-
chief in the breast pocket of his
dark suit befitting the con-
servative style of the globally
known benefactor who achieved
riches in gas and oil in a typical
"made in America" story that
Detroit's Junior Leaguers, like
Bev Curtis of Detroit's plush
Grosse Point suburb, proudly
told visitors, including the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency's
INSIDE, under a two-page
spread entitled "The Power
Broker," by Kirk Cheyfits, the
magazine reported in big type
beneath another head photo of
Fisher backgrounded by the
American flag: "Max Fisher was
a poor kid from Ohio. Now his
wealth is in nine figures. He
advises Presidents and Prime
Ministers, directs corporations,
raises millions for charities and
politicians. He's a member of the
permanent government."
The magazine describes "the
permanent government" as "that
elite band of wealthy men and
academics whose steady in-
fluence on national affairs
continues virtually undisturbed
by the temporary changes in
leadership occasioned by elec-
tions or shifts in political power.
In Fisher's case, Detroit's
mayors, Michigan's governors
and America's Presidents come
and go but Max Fisher remains a
constant force in the affairs of the
Detroit Renaissance Inc.,
which led Detroit's- big busi-
nesses to favor the vast changes
from the warehouses and slums
on Detroit's riverfront to the
magnificent complex known as
Renaissance Center, where the
convention took place, was
Fisher's idea in 1970. He
organized it and became its first

Bull, President Nixon's Appoint-
ments Secretary, used to watch
the power brokers come and go
through the Oval Office. "Of
course, I know Mr. Fisher," Bull
said. "And it's always Mister
Fisher. I think he is probably the
most prominent Republican in
the country."

Mel Larsen, Michigan's
Republican Party chairman,
speaking of Fisher's role in the
past 18 years, said: "We've been
very fortunate to have him in-
volved in the Republican Party
because if you look at the most
prominent, influential individuals
across this country, Max Fisher
has to be right in the top."
Incidentally, and to some
incomprehensibly, titles on the
Detroit magazine's cover also
had a guideline to "Bishop Trifa:
Prelate or Persecutor?" He is
covered in eight pages in which
the "lonely, persistent effort" by
a now 83-year-old New York
Jewish dentist, Charles Kremer,
is basically credited for the
federal case to strip U.S. citizen-
ship from Trifa, who has been
accused as having been a key
leader of the viciously anti-
Semitic Rumanian Iron Guard
that massacred hundreds of Jews
in Rumania during World War
II. Ironically, the magazine
prominently noted that Richard
Nixon, when Vice President,
invited Trifa to deliver the
opening prayer to the U.S.

^ ._- .,_____,._u. July 14 started eating kst tha prisoners w. ;_ ^ .

Israel will ask the United
States Embassy in Tel

... State Dep't. Says
No One Was Aware
(JTA) The State
Department said here that
the decision to receive a
group of Palestinian
protestors on the grounds
of the U.S. consulate in
East Jerusalem last week
was made by the Consul
General there and that the
U.S. Ambassador in Tel
Aviv, Samuel Lewis, may
not have been aware of it
or approved it in advance.
Responding to questions about
the incident, the Department's
chief spokesman. John Trattner
said. "The Consulate General in
Jerusalem was approached
recently by prominent West
Bank residents who asked that
an American representative of
the staff see a group of people
who were worried about the
humanitarian aspects of con-
ditions in Nafta prison." a prison
in Israel for persons held on
charges of terrorist activity.
"A group of approximately 40
persons" who came to the
consulate "was somewhat larger
than expected. When the group
arrived at the consulate
yesterday, they were permitted
to enter the grounds at Nablus
Road." He said the group
remained in the garden where
they talked with a consukr
representative and after giving
him a petition they departed.
Trattner said, "We are not
aware of a protest by the Israel
government." He said he didn't
know if the Ambassador in Tel
Aviv was asked about the
meeting or approved it.
He said the consulate in East
Jerusalem makes its own
decisions, including any in-
volving a group of people
presenting a petition. He ob-
served that "there wasn't time to
call Tel Aviv, and even if there
were. I'm sure the Consul
