Representative Dan Mica b'as
issued the, following statement
concerning the sale of AWACS
spy planes to Saudi Arabia. "I
want to reiterate today my
strong and continued opposition
to the sale of AWACS planes to
Saudi Arabia and the sale of any
military equipment to that
country that will enhance the use
of F-15's that are presently in
their possession. I will not vote
for any measure that will send
sophisticated military equipment
to Saudia Arabia or endanger the
security of Israel. In fact when I
recently visited with the Presi-
dent regarding the budget, I was
the only Congressman present
who voiced opposition to the Ad-
ministration's actions regarding
these sales."
Mrs. Rose Rifkin, Chairperson
of the Community Relations
Council Special Task Force to
oppose such a sale has indicated
Representative Mica's statement
is received by Christians and
Jews alike in South County with
great pleasure. She stressed that
Congressman Mica was one of
the original members of the
House to protest the sale and was
a co-signer of the famous Febru-
ary 25 letter to Secretary of State
Haig in opposition to the sale.
"Representative Mica's articu-
Dan Mica
late leadership and courage to
ipeak out in Washington is
reflected in his stand on both the
AWACS sale and in his opposi-
tion to the sale of enhanced mili-
tary capabilities for the F-15
fighter planes," Mrs. Rifkin
stated. She also indicated that a
full campaign to inform our
elected representatives of our op-
position to the AWACS sale is
now in force.
Thousands of South County
residents, both Jews and non-
Jews have written to the Presi-
dent, two Senators and to Repre-
sentative Mica expressing their
concern over the administration
decision.
The White House has post
poned formally presenting its
decision to the Congress, but it is
expected that such request will
be presented after the June 30 Is-
raeli elections or even possibly in
the Fall. Both Houses of Con-
gress must defeat the request in
order to prohibit the sale of this
military equipment to Saudi
Arabia. Mrs. Rifkin stresses that
continual communication with
our Representatives is necessary
over the'next three months.
The addresses of our elected
officials are as follows:

Federation/UJA Mission to Israel
Campaign Reaches $1,310,000
Rabbi Bruce S. Warshal, Exec-
live Director of the South
unty Jewish Federation has
a ted that he has received
th response from the article
l appeared in the last edition
uke Fbridian announcing the
iober 11-22 Federation-UJA
ission to Israel.
| Warshal indicated that the
deration has reserved 20 rooms
i this national UJA mission and
at within the first week of an-
fiuncement, he has already made
vations for nine couples. He
kges those interested in partici-
pling in this mission to contact
i at the Federation office while
is still available.
Warshal indicated that the trip
will highlight unusual features
that are not provided in the usual
commercial trous of Israel. The
Mission will provide access to
military installations in the Sinai,
soon to be returned to Egypt, and
to other strategic centers.
The Mission will study absorp-
tion centers where participants
can talk with new Russian immi-
grants. Members of the Mission
will be involved with the Project
Renewal Neighborhood Program,
Israel's program to rehabilitate
blighted neighborhoods. The
group will be briefed by high level
government and military officials
throughout the trip.
mem*
The entire country will be seen
from the Negev to the Allenby
Bridge and Jericho to the Good
Fence on the Lebanese border.
Highlights of the Mission will be
the time spent in Jerusalem and
the visit to Masada, the
mountain fortress which was the
last outpost against the Romans
until its fall in the year 73 CE.
All accommodations will be de-
luxe and will include meals. The
Mission will cost $1,000 per
person. A family gift of $2,600 for
a couple or $1,300 for a single
person to the 1982 UJA-
Federation campaign will be
required of all participants on the
Mission.
Norman I. Stone, General
Chairman of the 1981 UJA-Fed-
eration campaign announces that
the campaign has reached
$1,310,000.
Stone commented, "This figure
represents an increase of almost
50 percent over our 1980 cam-
paign of $900,000. We never set
formal campaign goals because
we want to work as hard as we
can to collect as much money for
Israel and American Jewish in-
stitutions as we can; however, an
informal goal within the minds of
many of our leaders was to hit the
magic figure of $1.3 million dol-
lars. We did it, and we feel ex-
i ceedingly proud."
James B. Baer, President of
the Federation commented to
The F(ortdan,fWAhaVe had over
6,000 contributors in this cam-
paign and almost 1,000 workers.
It would be impossible for me to
publicly thank all of the Jews of
South County who were respon-
sible for this heroic effort. Yet I
must single out our campaign
leadership and praise Norman I.
Stone, our General Campaign
i Chairman, Milton Kretsky, and
Sydney A. Altman, our Co-
chairmen of the Men's and Fami-
ly Division; Rita Bagus, Chair-
person for the Women's Division
and my lovely wife, Margie, who
was Associate Chairman for the
Women's Division. This was a
fantastic leadership team and it
, was my pleasure working with
them."

Fedorenko Seeks to Go Back to Soviet
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
IT__ation proceedings began
(New Haven, Conn. Monday
it Feodor Fedorenko of
bury, who was a guard in
[Nazi death camp of Treblinka
i World War II. Fedorenko,
alized in 1970, was stripped
|his citizenship last January on
unds that he had lied about
i wartime activities when he
i for admission to the U.S.
|IM9.
I ACCORDING TO his attor-
Bri,m Gildea, Fedorenko,
iwas born in the Ukraine, has
jlied to the Soviet Union for
anent resident status. His
wife and two sons presently live
in the Ukraine and he has visited
the Soviet Union several times
since 1973. There are no charges
against him in that country,
Gildea said.'
Fedorenko lost his citizenship
after the Supreme Court rejected
his appeal against a lower court's
finding that he had entered the
U.S. under falce pretenses. When
he applied for an American visa
under the Displaced Persons Act,
he falsely stated that he had
spent the war years as a farm and
factory worker after his capture
by the Germans in 1941.
In his appearance at the pro-
ceedings, it was revealed that he
has applied to return voluntarily
to his native Russia.
His attorneys say he has
sought permission from the
Soviet Embassy in Washington
to go back to the Ukraine, where
he was born and has a wife and
two sons whom he left behind
before World War II.
IT IS understood that the
Soviets have agreed to consider
Fedorenko's application. It is
expected that it might take them
six months to a year to make a
decision.

That Old Conspiracy
A B'nai B'rith report indicates that leaders of
the Soviet Union are attempting to cover up the
problems affecting the workers in Poland by blaming
Jews and Zionism. As usual, no distinction is made
between them. Nor do the Soviets even attempt to
explain why the blame is deserved.
Traditional anti-Semitism both in Poland and
Russia, furthermore, makes the charge stick.
Instead of dealing with the needs of the workers in
the USSR and in Poland, the heirs of Josef Stalin are
again looking for a conspiracy, not a solution.
The sad thing is that, in both countries, the
workers* own prejudices are helping their oppressors
rather than forcing their oppressors to help them.

Florida Court Asked to Act
On Yom Kippur Jury Case
NEW YORK The
American Jewish Congress
has called on the Supreme
Court of Florida to reverse
a first-degree murder con-
viction which carries an
automatic death penalty
on grounds that the jury
was chosen on Yom Kip-
pur, the Jewish Day of
Atonement.
In rejecting a defense motkw
U> postpone the jury 9electioi
because of the Jewish holiday,
the court deprived the defendant
of his constitutional right to a
jury selected from a fair cross-
section of the community, the
Congress argues in a friend-of-
the-court brief in the case oi
Florida v. Paul William Scott.
AN ESTIMATED nine per
cenfl of the population of Pain
Ik-ach County, where Scott was
tried, is Jewish. Scott, 24, is not
Jewish
The American Jewish Con-
gress brief cited a 1975 U.S. Su-
preme Court decision in Taylor v.
Ix)uisiana. which held that a
defendant in a criminal case was
entitled to a jury chosen from a
fair cross-section of the com-
munity. "The selection of Scott's
jury on Yom Kippur. a day when
Jews observing the commands of
their religion would not have
appeared for jury service,
violated Scott's constitutional
rights." the brief said.
The AJCongress brief also
cited a 1979 Supreme Court
decision, in Duren v. Missouri,
holding that the requirement of a
fair cross-section jury was
ignored if (1) the group alledged
to be excluded was a "distinc-
tive" group in the community:
(2> if the representation of this
group in venires from which
juries were selected was not fair
and reasonable in relation to the
number of such persons in the
community: and 13) if this under-
representation was due to
systematic exclusion of the group
in the jury selection process.
ON EACH of these grounds,
the lower court's refusal to post-
pone the jury selection violated
the defendants rights, the Con
gress said in its brief
Clock Running Down
Reagan Urges Israel Exercise Restraint
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM
(JTA) Israel was ex-
pected to reply affirmative-
ly to an urgent message
-from President Reagan to
Premier Menachem Begin
Tuesday calling on Israel to
refrain from any overt
measures against Syria's
deployment of SAM-6 anti-
aircraft missiles in Lebanon
while the U.S. attempts, by
diplomatic means, to defuse
the situation. Foreign Min-
ister Yitzhak Shamir,
meeting with Ambassadors
from the European Econo-
mic Community (EEC)
countries, made it clear
that Israel was still relying
on political options.
Other political sources
repeated the official position that
Israel would try to avoid a mili-
: tary confrontation with Syria but
would not acquiesce to the de-
ployment of the missiles on Leb-
anon's central mountain range.
Begin said that Syria had placed
additional missiles on the Syrian
Lebanese border over the week-
end but did not say on which
side. He said there were three
SAM-6 batteries new inside
I.abanon.
REAGAN's message was
delivered personally by U.S. Am-
bassador Samuel Lewis. Begin
interrupted a meeting with the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee to receive
him and then read the message to
the committee. He appeared
pleased with its contents, indi-
cating that the U.S. accepted in
principle Israel's demands that
the missiles be withdrawn from
Lebanon.
Lewis told reporters after his
meeting with Begin that there
has been no progress so far on the
diplomatic front but he did not
think the situation was "desper-'
ate." He said the U.S. would con-
tinue to do its utmost to resolve
the matter, including contacta
with the Soviet Union which is
presumed to have influence in
Damascus. Lewis said he had no
information to confirm reports
that the Syrians have placed
more missiles in Lebanon.
The missiles were deployed
after Israeli fighter planes shot
down two Svrian helicopters over
central Lebanon last week as a
warning to Syria to hah its at-
tacks on Christian forces. Syria
insists that they will not be with-
drawn.
ACCORDING TO reports
from Beirut today, Syria has
asked the U.S. to put pressure on
Israel to end its attacks on Leba-
non. Diplomatic sources in Beirut
said that Syria will not change its
position despite hectic efforts b
the U.S. Embassy in Damascus
Reagan's message arrived I
when the feeling here was that
"time is running out" fordiolo.!
matic means to be effective L
opinion is divided on what oth
measures to take. Begin stressed]
that the Reagan Administration
is the most friendly toward Israel
in recent years, implying that
Israel should comply with the
American request to exercise
restraint. But committee!
chairman Moshe Ahrens seemed I
less optimistic when he emerd
from the meeting.
"It is very difficult to predict I
how the Syrians behave," Arena
said, noting that President Hafez
Assad is beset with internal diffi-
culties. He would not say how
long he thought Israel should wit
for diplomatic efforts to succeed (
before it took matters into u J
own hands. But LaborMKYual
Sarid said he saw prospects that
the missiles would be removed I
without resort to military means.
German Society Chief
Says He Supports Begin
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Asher
Ben Satan, president of the
Israel-West German Friendship
Society, and former Israel Am-
bassador to Bonn, told a press
conference here the Society fully
supported Prime Minister
Menachem Begin's sharp
criticism of West German Chan-
cellor Helmut Schmidt Sunday.
He said the society in Israel
would urge its sister Society in
Germany andlhe "very many" in'
Schmidt's own party who dis-
agree with his new policy line "to
lift their voices in protest."
BEN-NATAN said Schmidt's
"open flirtation with the Arabs
could jeopardize the delicate rela-
tionship between West Germany
and Israel."
He said he thought the change
in policy was "economic expedi-
ency energy expediency on
which he is trying to base a new |
policy.''
But he thought it was also put]
of a "wish to turn their bach]
completely on the past, to am
what has been has been. We ham
paid for it enough now leave an
alone.
"Now we have to make M
German policy, and a Germtai
policy alone, and nothing from
the past can influence that policy j
anymore.
"This is actually the gist of j
what Schmidt is saying, and itid
a view held by a sizeabkl
proportion of the German peopkvj
Human Rights Joins Budget Block
Two days after he was elected
President of a nation usually
described as a democracy and, by
constitution, guaranteeing basic
civil rights to all its citizens.
Ronald Reagan tossed a political
ball out on the court with an
ominous bounce. He said: "1
don't think that you can turn i
away from some country because
.iere and there they do not agree
with our concept of human
rights."
It didn't take Alexander Haig
long to pick up the Reagan ball
and run with it. He attacked
yesterday's American humar
rights policy as one having "the
practical consequence of driving
authoritarian regimes, tradition-
ally friendly to the West, into to-
talitarian models."
BUT THAT was just the be
ginning of the Administration',
devaluation of human rights aa i
cornerstone of our foreign policy
In a move compatible wit!
placing in charge of our Depart
ment of Energy a man who aims
to liquidate that department, the
President has made Ernest
Lefever Assistant Secretary of
State for Human Rights.
This new guardian of an Amer-
ican treasure accuses the
previous administration of
trivializing the human rights
concept. We have larger fish to
fry. We must put the human
rights file in the bottom drawer
1 now and cuddle up to nations
that offer us good trade opportu-
I nities. These are nations that are
(likely to aid their military
strength to ours. They may lean a
(bit to the authoritarian side but.
by golly, they'll have no truck
with Communism; and that's
what counts most of all.
You can sell this concept to
millions of Americans today, but
millions of others who take the
trouble to analyze the Reagan
Haig-Lefever evaluation of the
role of human rights in our rela-
tions with other nations are un-
derstandably dismayed. Early in
January, when President-elect
Reagan made a gift of a gun to
President Jose Lopez Portilkt of
Mexico, he must have recognized
a plea for Washington's con-
tinuing dedication to human
rights in Portillo's advice. A
friendly President of Mexico was
urging a friendly President-elect
of his nation's northern neighbor
to be extremely cautious in
approaches to El Salvador.
WHEN YOU come bearing a
gun, or an armory of guns today,
you may bolster a paramilitary
regime; but if. at the same time,
you fail to recognize the Central
American's hunger for freedom
and for economic and social bet-
terment, you may fall into the
trap of inspiring in the symapthy
for Marxist guerrillas.
Oh. nonsense, the new forces in
Washington reply. Hasn't
Unman Rll/htli reminded us that the greatest
threats to human rights cone
from the messianic touliunu
regimes whose brutal grip brooki
no opposition? And can't you gat
it through your heads that then)
is a vast difference between a to-
talitarian rule and an authoriUtt*
an government?
Put your trust in the authori-
tarians like Cuba's Batista or Ni-
caragua's Somoza of yesterday or
today's Bolivia's Meza or Argen-
tina's Videlas or Chiles
Pinochet, and you'll be agreeably
surprised to behold theire-a
alight with promise of frp0*
justice, mercy, and love for to*

tss to sell sophisticated

tl's Arab foes.

d what observers said was

Jer on the leaders of two of the

rtrs. He charged that they
.. interested only in selling
apons to the Arabs at the
rhest possible price and buying
from them at the lowest
isiblecost.

Sets Schmidt, Giscard Ears Ringing
SCHMIDT came in for the
moat scathing invective He was
accused by Begin of willfully
seeking to forget German crimes
against the Jewish people.
"There is no remnant of heart,
morality or memory," Begin
charged with reference to Sen-
midt's recent remark that
Germany has a "moral commit-
ment" to the "Palestinians who
escaped or fled from the West
Bank."
According to Begin, "From a
moral point of view, Schmidt's
statements certainly rank as the
most callous ever heard. It seems
that the Holocaust had con-
veniently managed to slip his
mind and he did not make
mention of a million and a half
small children murdered, or
entire families wiped out."
Begin accused the entire
German nation of applauding
when Jews were murdered as
long as Germany was victorious.
"But now we hear of a commit-
ment to those who strove to
complete what the Germans
started in Europe." Begin said, a
reference apparently to the
Palestinians. "Schmidt must
have concluded some very
lucrative business deals in Saudi
Arabia which affected his
memory," Begin said.
WITHOUT naming names,
but in a clear reference to Sch-
midt, Begin said he knew full well
who had been present "in a
curtain movie theatre with Hitler
Ito view the barbarous execution
in 1944 of German officers who
failed in a coup attempt. They
were hung by piano wires to
make their death slow and
torturous.
"I am not the only one who
knows who was present, by
I invitation, during the screening
I of that film and who applauded it
with the rest of the audience."
Noting that Jews had been
persecuted for their love of
lucre," he added, "If you want to
, see unbridled greed and avarice,
go see discard d'Kstaing of
Frame and Helmut Schmidt of
Germany. The French have
conveniently forgotten all the
k)fty ideals of their revolution,
and the Germans want to forget
their unforgiveable crimes. All
they care about is how to sell
arms at high prices and buy
cheap oil. That is the full extent
of their ethos and morality."
(Schmidt, on his visit to Saudi
Arabia this week, reportedly
backed away from a multi-billion
dollar arms deal with the Saudis
that he had favored, on grounds
that West Germany could not at
this time rescind its 1971 decision
not to sell arms to countries in
"danger Zones" such as the
Middle East.)

South County Celebrates Israel Independence Day
An estimated 1,000 people from South County joined together on May
3 to celebrate Israel Independence Day. Gathered on the steps of Boca
Raton City Hall they heard Mayor William Konrad issue a formal proc-
lamation on behalf of the City recognizing Israel Independence Day.
Led by the Color Guard of the Jewish War Veterans, the group then
proceeded to walk approximately a mile to the Sanctuary and grounds of
Temple Beth El on S.W. 4th Avenue. The march was highlighted by the
presence of many children from the three religious schools in South
County representing Temple Beth El, Congregation B'nai Torah and the
South County Jewish Community Day School.
All assembled enjoyed a festival program which included a profession-
al musical group plus the Kings Point Glee Club, under the direction of
Iz Siegel and the adult choir of Temple Beth El as well as presentations
from the Day School and Congregation B'nai Torah Children. Master of
ceremonies for the morning was Ed Rosen thai, President of Temple
Emeth of Delray Beach.
James Baer, President of the South County Jewish Federation
presented the address of the morning stressing Jewish responsibility
and the vital role that Israel plays in the security of worldwide Jewry.
In part, Baer commented, "If there had been an independent free
Israel 40 years ago, there may not have been a Holocaust. And yet,
today, while we celebrate here, our brothers and sisters in Israel are still
spilling their blood trying to hold onto their little piece of land and their
freedom." Baer then called upon all assembled to be active in the cam-
paign to stop our government from selling AWACS, a sophisticated
American spy plane to Saudi Arabia. "The rescue at Entebee could
never have taken place because the AWACS would have detected these
planes that made the rescue before they were airborne, yes, before they
were airborne. The danger to Saudi Arabia having these planes is ob-
vious and even more awesome, when we recall that during post wars
Saudia Arabia has given fighter planes and other assistance to Syria and
other Arab states in their fight to eliminate Israel."
Finally, Baer commented, "Independence a great feeling, and we
have the luxury of celebrating two independence days because we are
Americans as well as Jews. We also have the responsibility as Ameri-
cans and Jews to do our part every hour and every day to see that our
freedom and Israel's freedom will continue forever."

Haig Says Israel) 'Understandable'
B, DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -'
(JTA) Secretary of State
Alexander Haig told news
paper editors that whik
concern being expressed b>
Israel over the Reagan Ad-
ministration's proposed
multi-billion dollar arms
package to Saudi Arabia
was "understandable."
some of it is a "reflection of
a lot of misinformation and
exaggeration in terms of
the capabilities of the
system.'*
Haig was not specific but
apparently his remarks were in
line with the briefing given
reporters by a senior White
Mouse official, who stressed that
U.S. military and civilian person-
nel would be needed to maintain
and operate the AWACS
THE OFFICIAL, who was not
identified, said that 30 I" S Air
Forte personnel and about 410
American civilians hired by
Boeing and other defense con-
tractors. wiD be needed to fly.
operate and maintain the five
AWACS the Administration
wants te sell to Saudi Arabia.
But the Administration still has
not made clear what the eventual
role of the American personnel
will be when the Saudis take
complete title to the planes.
Haig s remarks were made in
response to questions following
his address to the American
Society of Newspaper Editors at
the Washington-Sheraton Hotel
Haig did not refer to the sale to
the Saudis of the AWACS nor to
enhancement equipment for the
62 F 15s already sold to the
Saudis during his speech which
dealt with the direction of Ameri-
can foreign policy in general
under the Reagan Administra-
tion
Haig said no decision has been
made on sending the arms
request to Congress He urged
everyone to first look at "the
technical arrangements and
modalities for transferring the

NOTING THAT the Carter
Administration had assured Con-
gress, when it approved the sale
of the F- 15s to Saudi-Arabia in
1978. that there would be no
further sales to enhance the of-
fensive capabilities of the plane.
Haig said this assurance was
given at a time when the
strategic situation in the Middle
East was fundamentally very
different from the present
situation
He said that since then there
has been the overthrow of the
Shah s regime in Iran, the Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan, and
whole new security threats to the
area When, it was noted, that
arms were provided to the Shah
of Iran, the US argued that this
would stabilize the region and
hold down the price of oil. Haif
replied tersely that the Reagar
Administration would not hav
responded to the situation in Iran
as did the Carter Administration.
He did not elaborate.
Haig also said that when the
Saudis made their new arms
request last year, the Carter Ad
ministration "reassessed" the
situation and agreed to supply
the arms except for a "nuance of
difference on aerial surveillance."
HE SAID the Carter Ad-
ministration agreed to follow the
Reagan Administration to make
its own judgement and did not
send the request to Congress
because it wanted to make a joint
effort with the new Republican
Administration, which rejected
the idea, preferring to make its
own proposal.
On another matter. Haq
stressed that the plight of Sovie
Jews and others oppressed in the
USSR was a top concern of the
Reagan Administration. He said
that at the Madrid conference or
the Helsinki accords the U.S. was
seeking to persuade the Soviet-
to release Jewish refuseniks now
in prisons or labor camps. He
said that, thus far. the U.S. has
been "notoriously unsuccessful"
in budging the Soviets from their
"intransigence." but added
nevertheless there has been suc-
cess but not much.

Fischer added: "Particularly
at this tense moment, I do not
want to make any detailed
comment about what has been
happening other than to urge
that all involved in these recent
dangerous events observe the ut-
most restraint so that tensions
can be decreased."
Fischer's only explanation for
his statement was that there had
been news reports indicating that
the U.S. supported Israeli actions
in Lebanon. He would not
comment on the reported state-
ment by Israeli Premier
Menachem Begin that Washing-
ton and Jerusalem agreed that
there should be a return to the
status quo in Lebanon.
FISCHER HAD said that Sy-
ria's capture of two Christian
held strongpoints on the Leb-
anese central mountain range
was a change of the status quo
that concerned the U.S.
He also declined to comment
on suggestions that Israel's
escalation of its air raids in
'Lebanon could be seen in the
context of the recent statement
by National Security Adviser
Richard Allen that Israel was
justified in the "hot pursuit" of
terrorists into Lebanon.
It became clear to observers
here that the State Department
was divorcing itself from reports
that Israel's latest moves in
Lebanon had the blessings of the
U.S. According to Fischer, the
U.S. is "seeking a return to
normal" in Lebanon, and there is
"no way Lebanon can become
normal unless all parties exercise
restraint."
With respect to the Soviet role,
while Fischer denied that Mos-
cow was being singled out, his re-
marks obviously were a signal to
the USSR which has been
supplying Syria and the
Palestinians and which has
reportedly threatened to exercise
its friendship treaty with Syria.
"The violence in Lebanon has
gone on far too long," Fischer
said in urging all governments to
help calm the situation there.

We Won't Give Into
Christian Annihilation
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA)
Israel warned Syria late
last week that it "will not
acquiesce in the Syrian
attempt to take over
Lebanon and annihilate the
Christians there." The
warning, in the form of a
Cabinet communique, was
issued shortly before Israel
disclosed that its aircraft
had shot down two Syrian
helicopters over central
Lebanon.
Premier Menachem Begin an
nounced the downing of the
second helicopter in the course of
a radio interview in which he said
Israelis, as Jews, had a moral
commitment to prevent the
slaughter of a people or religion
by another nation and that it was
also in Israel's "clear national
interest" to prevent the Syrians
from gaining control of the
central Lebanese mountain range
from which they could shell
Junia, the only Lebanese port
open to Christian forces.
AT THE same time came the
revelation that Syria had moved
Soviet-made surface-to-air
missiles into central Lebanon,
thus posing a threat to Israeli
control of the air over Lebanon.
The missiles are the very same
used by Syria and Egypt when
President Anwar Sadat's forces
launched their surprise attack on
Israel and the Yom Kippur War
of 1973. The missiles took a dead-
ly toll in Israeli planes.
According to Begin, if the
Syrians control the mountain
range, known as the Sannine,
they could move southwards and
attack Israel together with
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion terrorists. He said the
Syrians have not listened to
American appeals to halt the
fighting in Lebanon and that
President Hafez Assad refused to
receive the U.S. Ambassador to
Damascus.
The State Department has ex-
pressed "concern" over the
Syrian capture of two strong-
points in the Lebanese mountain
range previously held by Chris-
tian forces and described it as "a
major change in the status quo."
At the same time, however, it
refused to condemn the Syrian
action.
Begin said Israel decided to
counter the Syrian thrust wh*n
the Syrians began to employ fceu-
copters against the Christians.
"We do not want war with
Syria," he said, "or a confronta-
tion with the Syrians" but "there
are risks We cannot just
stand aside while the Christians
are being slaughtered and the
dangers to Israel itself are
ijrowing."
CHIEF OF Staff Gen Rafael
Eitan confirmed that Syria's use
of helicopter gunships and troop
carriers could seriously affect the
capacity of the Christians to de-
fend themselves., and therefore
the Syrian escalation represented
a direct threat to Israel's
security. The warning to Syria
was issued following telephone
consultations among various
ministers on the deteriorating
situation in Lebanon.
Deputy Defense Minister
Mordechai Zipori later amplified
the communique. He said on a*
radio interview that it signified
that Israel would continue to
press for international diplomatic
support to end the fighting in
Lebanon. "I am glad to note tha'
our" appeals have had som
positive response for the first
time from many countries,
mainly from the U.S.," he said.
Katyusha rockets were fired
into Upper Galilee from Palestine
terrorist positions in Lebanon.
No casualties or damage were
reported, but Israelis in border
villages were forced to spend the
night in bomb shelters. The
rocket attack apparently was
retaliation for Israel's heavy air
strikes against four Palestine
Liberation Organization bases
well inside Lebanon. They were
the second air raids in two days.
A MILITARY spokesman
acknowledged, meanwhile, that
Israeli fighter planes shot down a
Syrian helicopter near the
Lebanese Christian village of
Zahle that has been under siege
by Syrian forces. Zipori said in
his radio interview: "The Syrians
have recently introduced a new
dimension in their fight against
the Christians a dimension
against which they (the Chris-
tians) have no defense. That is,
various Winds of helicopters
which are wreaking havoc among
the Christians."
With respect to the downing of
the helicopter, Zipori said "the
significance is simple. We have
announced many times we have
an obligation towards the
Lebanese Christians and we will
not abandon them to be
slaughtered."
Asked if such Israeli inter-
vention did not create the danger
of a Syrian-Israeli confrontation.
Zipori replied. "There is always
the danger but Israel has warned
and warned again that there will
be no Syrian air activity in the
skies over Lebanon."
ZIPORI SAID one of Israel's
objectives in Lebanon was to
ensure that an entity would
develop there which might be
prepared to discuss peace with
Israel. He said the Syrian attacks
m Christian concentrations in
.he Sannine mountains near
Zahle which overlook the Beka
valley on the east and the Chris-
tian-held coastal region on the
west were intended to destroy
such an entity.
The escalation of fightin
Lebanon has brought the gove
ment under pressure from sens
army officers and from settlers i
the northern region to step
Israel's involvement. Theoffki
want to impress on Damascus I
existence of a "red line"
Lebanon beyond which ,
Syrians will not be permitted i
go. The settlers demand strt
action against terrorists in (
Lebanon.

ton, the leader of the cult

Rioted in the daily press, Ben
D| Carter announced, "Even
!* government sends soldiers
Nice forces to evict us, we
P*give in."
jjjanized tn the Black ghettos
"go. Detroit and other
f"can c't'es in the late 60's, a
group of Black Hebrews
attempted to settle in
a Black African state
deport the entire group
we first members of the
sect arrived in Israel, they were
officially welcomed, and some
were granted status as temporary
residents.
However, as more and more
members illegally joined the first
arrivals, neighbors of the sect
began to complain of their bizarre
life-style. Word began to filter
out associating the group with a
strange anti-Semitic philosophy,
concocted, according to some in-
vestigators, in order to give the
cult a sense of cohesion and
isolation.
AMONG THE charges against
the Black Hebrews are cruel and
unusual punishments, which
allegedly are used to keep mem-
bers from leaving the sect:
mainly from fear of being charged
with racism, the government of
Israel avoided confronting the
problem of the group's presence
in Dimona and other Negev de-
velopment towns until protests,
brought by their neighbors and
continuing illegal immigration of
sect followers, caused the ap-
pointment of the Glass commis-
sion to investigate the entire
matter.
After long and presumably
thorough study, Glass, a
National Religious Party MK,
and his colleagues dismissed
charges of abuse and threats as
"apparently unfounded." and
found Carter and his followers
more moderate and reasonable
than much of the negative pub-
licity they had received.However,
critics of the Glass committee
maintain that Carter merely
changed his stance in order to
impress the liberal American-
born Glass and that the commit-
tee's 1 17 page report never seri-
ously dealt with the claims of
former cult members, who insist
that they were kept in the group
against their will. Skeptics
believe (Mass has merely exacer-
bated the problem by lending
credibility to a charlatan.
On the other hand, short of
mass deportation, the Glass
report is the first serious sugges-
tion of how the government can
deal with the problem of the
group's indubitable existence.
The only effect of the govern-
ment's non-policy up to now, it
would appear, has been to out-
rage legitimate Black visitors to
Israel who have been suspected
of being members of the group
and treated accordingly, and
infuriate neighbors of the cult
who complain that the over-
crowded conditions of the group
have made their areas unliveable.
PERHAPS THE biggest
problem with the Glass report is
that it tends to accept the group
on its own terms. To establish a
policy framework, it would be
neccessary to verify the true
identities of the group members
and determine if any of them, as
has been contended, are wanted

Hilda Ann Robinson, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Robinson
of Boca Raton, will be awarded a
bachelor of arts degree at the
87th annual commencement
exercises of the Jewish Theolog-
ical Seminary of America in New
York City. Ms. Robinson, a grad-
uate of St. Andrews High School
in Boca Raton, expects to be

later this month from Columbia

criminals, fugitives from justice
in the United States, or otherwise
clearly unacceptable as legal resi-
dents.
Second, an effort should be
made to offer group members an
alternative to continued depend-
ence on the cult. Those who wish
to settle elsewhere, in Israel or
abroad, should be clearly offered
that option. Finally, it wouldn't
seem reasonable to accept at face
value Carter's promise that he
and his followers will suddenly
become loyal law-abiding Israelis
as soon as they are granted the
right of their own settlement. If it
has managed illegally to migrate
more than 1.000 members despite
all efforts of vigilance of the au-
thorities to date, the group must
now be willing to accept, not
dictate, the terms of their resi-
dence vis-a-vis the State.
The greatest fear generated by
the cult is that they may. if ther.
leader commands, commit mass
suicide as did the Jonestown
group in Guyana. This seems far-
fetched and outlandish; however,
a mass deportation of the cult
would almost surely result in
severe repercussions among the
Blacks of the United States and
>ther groups. Since they have
been living in Israel for almost 12
years, it would seem to be merely
common sense for the govern-
ment to take responsibility for
their future. And why should
they be expelled at this late stage
in the game?
BAYARD RUSTIN, the
highly-respected Black
spokesman, led a special commis-
sion of Americans to Israel to in-
vestigate the matter, after meet-
ing with Carter (who now calls
himself Ben Yisrael) and his
followers, Rustin described the
group as "indigestible" and
warned that they may be a "time-
bomb." Nevertheless, there is
really no inherent reason why the
Black Hebrews couldn't become,
with time, a positive and produc-
tive force within Israeli society
and a model of Israeli readiness
to ignore the color-line.
This also depends on empa-
thizing with and understanding
the Black Hebrews themselves.
Certainly no one can blame them
for wanting to escape the poverty
and degeneration of the slums of
Chicago. There must be a great
sense of despair behind their wil-
lingness to follow Ben Ammi. Yet
jthere is also a great hope in their
desire to live with human dignity
in the Promised Land.
In staying here for more than
12 years in very trying circum-
stances, the members of the
Black Hebrew cult challenge the
government to provide them with
a fair handling of their problem.
If well-intentioned individuals
within the group were systema-
tically encouraged and on the
other hand the cultish aspects
were diluted as much as possible,
there still could be good
prospects for the Blacks of
Dimona. Otherwise, the situation
could move from confrontation to
an open collision course and from
there it is anyone's guess how
this strange and complex story
might end.
