South County Women
Presidents Visit Day School
Recently, the presidents of the
South County women's organi-
zations visited the South County
Jewish Community Day School
on a day-long tour of Jewish
institutions. The presidents ate
lunch with the children. It is
difficult to ascertain who was
more impressed, the children, or
the presidents.
Second grader. M indie Alpert
wrote of her experiences:
"Indies came in and we sang
songs. Eden and Lori told a story
about what they liked about
Rosh Hashana. Some ladies
asked me how I liked it here. I
said I liked it a lot. Actually I
said I love it. They asked me
some more stuff, but I forgot."
I helped some people open their
Capri Sun (juice) even though 1
had a broken thumb. Mrs.
Knsclberg brought the people.
They were really nice especially
the ladies that sat next to me.
Joshua dram/ wrote:
"Hello." I am going to tell you
about the day all the presidents
of Jewish Clubs in Boca came to
our school. The day was October
5, the year that 1 attended this
school. It was a regular day but
after art. we didn't have lunch.
We sang to the presidents. We
had a lot of fun singing, well, at
least I did. After we sang, we had
lunch with the presidents. I sat
next to the National Council of
Jewish Women's president. I told
her that the school and all the
people were nice and reasonable.
They asked if the school was
giving me enough work, and I
said yes. Then all the presidents
left. That's what happened on the
day the presidents came to visit."
Fourth grader Julianne
Greenherg commented:
"I enjoyed President's Day
very much. I enjoyed it because
the women talked with us and
they said we were smart. I acted
very mature I was happy when
they said that Corky was very
smart because he is my father
The ladies looked so pretty.
They were very- smart too. I asked
them a lot of questions and they
asked me too. One of the
questions was. "How do I like
the school? "I replied,"! liked the
school very much. It is a wonder-
ful school."

l whole matter was the low
M of political dialogue estab-
hhed by the Administration that
wally impuned the loyalty of
i American Jew. Concerning
. I pass along the following
from the Ntw York
Ms of Nov. 1:
A sordid matter lingers from
the AWACS fight. It was
poignantly raised by Senator
William Cohen, who opposed the
deal but finally voted for it. The
Maine Republican, a Unitarian
with a Jewish father, said it was
better that American Jews lose
the contest than suffer the con-
sequences of winning.
Other Senators were less deli-
cate in expressing the same
lament. Mark Hatfield of Oregon
said talks with constituents had
exposed" "latent and anti-
Semitism" David Durenberger
of Minnesota said, "I have never
experienced anything like this in
my life, in terms of basic preju-
dice." Joseph Biden of Delaware
said, "I hive a feeling that
American Jews are being made a
scapegoat." New York's Daniel
Patrick Moymhan said, "There's
been a pattern of argument .
that, should this not go through,
it will lead to the kinds of things
you describe."
Who dared evoke such loath-
some emotion? Mr. Moymhan
was quite right to describe a
"pattern"; no one directly
shouted "blame the Jews" for
losing a vote or a Saudi contract.
But too many in this struggle
were ready to arouse or exploit
base resentments. Too many
made passionate concern for Is-
rael's safety appear sinister, dis-
loyal to America.
"It is not the business of other
nations to make foreign policy,''
said President Reagan, even as
he opened the capital's doors for
a Saudi prince. And if the over-
tone isn't clear, listen to its
elaboration by former Senator
James Abourezk: "This turned
out to be major battle between
the President of the United
States and a foreign lobby ....
Hell, Reagan beats his American
opposition a lot easier than that."
And if even that innuendo is
unclear, hear it from a master of
the art: "It it were not for the in-
tense opposition by Begin and
part of the American Jewish
community, the AWACS safe
would go through," said Richard
Nixon. "This fact will greatly
affect the consequences if the sale
fails to go through."
Let people of honor, starting
with the President, remove this
stain on our politics.

the AWACS sate, but so did most
other Americans, and Israels

security was only one reason to
object. Jewish lobbyists waged a
vigorous campaign; indeed, they
began before the Israeli Govern-
ment joined the challenge. But on
the other side, promoting the
deal, was an equally vigorous
lobby of weapons makers, oil
companies and Saudi agents and
traders. Neither side had any
special claim on the "American
interest." Neither lacked for
foreign" entanglements.
In fact, Kmerican Jews are not
slavish apologists for every Is-
raeli policy. Many have been
critical of the bombings of Bagh-
dad and Beirut and Israeli poli-
cies in the West Bank. But even
when Jews stand united, there
can be no tolerance for dark
mutterings about disloyalty and
coded complaints about their in-
Jews have as much right to
read concern for Israel into their
view of the national interest as do
Greek Americans opposing aid to
Turkey or black Americans
demanding opposition to South
Africa's racism. Such exertions,
whether or not they are per-
suasive, do not weaken America.
On the contrary, there can be no
strong foreign policy that ignores
the combined yearnings of
domestic interests.
Those who would frighten any
group out of the debate erode the
rights of all. Those who summon
the demons of anti-Semitism
against an understandably
jittery people do the devil's work.
It is they who betray America.

AWACS Victory a Mandate?
There is little point in dwelling over the Senate
approval of the sale of the AWACS to Saudi Arabia.
It is done. The question now is what lies ahead
beyond the danger that Israel says the sale poses to
its military security.
Many things have occurred in rapid fire order
since the sale to suggest that the danger to Israel's
military security is being expanded into a danger to
Israel's political security, as well.
Mainly, there have been statements by both
President Reagan and Administration spokesmen to
the effect that the Prince Fahd peace plan, which was
proposed by the Saudi leader in August and prompt-
ly rejected here at the time, is now being re-
considered in the form of "enrichment" to the Camp
David peace process.
In the Senate AWACS vote last week, President
Reagan has shown himself to be a successful wheeler-
and-dealer, an arm-twister of singularly monumental
proportion reminding us of the Lyndon Johnson
presidency. In our view, he must now bring this
talent of his to bear on reassuring Israel about his re-
assessment of the Fahd plan.
Does the reassessment include a new Reagan
position on what he accepted during his campaign as
the "indivisibility" of Jerusalem? Does it include a
new attitude toward talks with PLO Chief Yasir
Arafat whom he has branded as a terrorist?'
Mr. Reagan, early on in his presidency offered
his belief that Israeli settlements are "entirely
legal." If he has suddenly discovered new merit in
the Fahd peace proposal, does this mean he has also
changed his mind on this and agrees that Israel
ought to return to its pre-1967 borders?
The Danger of Alienation
These and other questions are of pivotal im-
portance by themselves. They take on monumental
significance in the wake of the Reagan AWACS
victory. Once and for all, the President must speak
out loudly on whether or not he suddenly interprets
the victory to be a mandate, as Prime Minister Begin
believes, to "liquidate Israel."
We are still far from coming to the conclusion
that the President has joined this camp of Arab
opinion. On the contrary, what we are fearful of is
that Mr. Reagan, anxious to conclude a comprehen-
sive peace in the M id die Fast, thinks he can take the
Arabs at face value. This was the very same mistake
that former President Carter made with the Russians
a mistake to which he confessed when Soviet
troops invaded Afghanistan.
A similar mistake by President Reagan on Arab
intentions would prove disastrous for Israel.
Doubtlessly, the Israelis know it, and what their own
contingency plans are to meet such naivete on the
President's part might prove even more disastrous
for all concerned peace, Israel, the United States,
Jews throughout the world.
President Reagan must be super-careful not to
paint the Israelis into a desperate corner. From
alienation can come nothing worthwhile.
Jewish Firm To
Build Hotel
Jewish-owned Geneva-based
firm, Aprofim, has been awarded
a contract to build a $266 million
luxury hotel in Abuja, the new
federal capital of Nigeria. The
firm, headed by Niasim Gaon,
who ia also president of the
World Federation of Sephardic
Jews, ia managed by an Israeli,
Yitzhak Ormiron.
The contract was signed with
the National Insurance Corp. of
Nigeria. The hotel, to be known
as the Nicon Noga Hilton, will
have 1,000 rooms and a confer

American Jewish leaders
have registered their
serious concern over the
possible effects of the sen-
ate's approval of the
Reagan Administration's
$8.5 billion weapons sale to
Saudi Arabia on the pros-
pects for peace and
stability in the Middle
They stressed, at the same
time, that the Administration
now has the responsibility and
obligation to sea to it that the
Saudis abandon their consistent-
ly hostile and obstructive posture
toward the peace process within
the Camp David framework and,
above all, to assure and maintain
Israel's military aupeiamity in
the region. Many Jewish leaders
also deplored the injection of
anti-Semitism aa an issue in the
bitter debate over the arms pack-
age deal.
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, declared:
"We hope that the White House
success in the (Senate) vote will,
aa the President promised, result
in a strengthening of our
country's position in the Middle
East. We hope too that the Saudi
royal family will respond by join-
ing in the quest for peace.
"If the Saudis do not take such
actions, the arms deal will prove
once again the futility of ap-
peasement. It will encourage
those forces in the Arab world,
enemies of peace, who insist that
acting against American in-
terests is the surest guarantee of
American support. For the
Reagan Administration, it will
have turned out to be a Pyrrhic
victory," Squadron said.
Maynard Wiahner, president of
the American Jewish Committee,
ieclared: "We deeply regret that
the Senate did not vote to block
the proposed AWACS arms
package sale to Saudi Arabia in
view of the dear Congressional
and public concern as to the risks
involved. We appreciate that,
whatever may have been differ-
ences of views regarding this
issue, the Administration has
always made clear its full com-
mitment to the security of Israel
and the Camp David process in
its search for peace in the Middle
"We now urge the Administra-
tion to demonstrate that commit-
ment in tangible form, to make
available to Israel the means to
counter the risks to her security
created by this sale. We also urge
the President to make clear to the
Saudis that they are now ex-
pected to demonstrate in tangible
form their intention to aid the
President in his efforts to forward
the peace process."
DANIEL THURSZ, executive
vice praaidant of B'nai B'rith In-
ternational, asserted that Senate
approval of the sale "only magni-
fies onr unmwu over peace and
stability in the Middle East." He
declared that "The time haa coma
for President Reagan to call upon
Saudi Arabia to respond by sup-
porting the American-Egvptian-
Israeli peace process and stop-
ping its fiwanM-tati and military
support" of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization's terrorist
The B'nai B'rith leader also
urged the Reagan Administra-
tion to reassure Israel, "Amer-
ica'a only stable and reliable ally
in the Middle East," by provid-
ing it with the resources to
protect itself and ensure its
Maxwell Greenberg, national
chairman of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, said "We
hope that the approval of the
arms package for Saudi Arabia
will contribute to American
interests as forecast by its
proponents. At this point, the
Saudis must display their good
faith. They can do so by partici-
pating in the Camp David peace
process and by ceasing and
detif*i"g from their financial
and moral support of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization."
"Reports of anti-Semitism as an
element in the AWACS debate
have confused and poisoned our
discourse. We know, respect and
value President Reagan's
dedication to fair play and abhor-
rence of bigotry and anticipate
that he will disavow those who
have either misguidedly or
viciously used it."
Henry Siegman, executive di-
rector of the American Jewish
Congress, observed that "The
sale was approved solely on the
premise that Saudi Arabia ia an
ally and friend of the US and
shares our country's concerns in
the Middle East. This thesis
must now be proved. Anything
less than Saudi support of the
Camp David process and an end
to its funding of the PLO would
make a sham of the Administra-
tion's assurances. America has
fulfilled its pledge to deliver these
powerful and sophisticated weap-
ons. Whether Saudi Arabia ia
genuinely motivated toward
peace will now be put to the
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of Ameri-
can Hebrew Congregations,
stated that "In winning the
AWACS vote, President Reagan
haa assumed two serious obliga-
tions. First, he must use his
powers of persuasion to press the
Saudis to do what they have so
far refused to do cooperate
with American policy by sup-
porting the Camp David process
and abandoning the terrorist
PLO and all those who seek to
scuttle the peace Second, he
must move to repair the harm
done by those of his supporters
who questioned the loyalty of the
opposition and falsely made the
issue a contest between Reagan
and Begin. The surfacing of anti-
Semitism that haa resulted from
this tactic must be dealt with
firmly and promptly by the Pres-
ident himself."
RABBI Walter Wunberger,
president of the Synagogue
Council of America, noted that
notwithstanding the sharp
differences of opinion in the
course of the arms i
debate, "there was total uni
ity that concern for the securid
of thei State of Israel U not orjil

mvot of American policy w

Kreitnian, its executive vial
president, sent a telegram tol
President Reagan today call
upon him "in this critical jun"|
cture to assure the futurel
security of Israel and give tan I
gable evidence of this support
through the granting of appro-
priate armaments and economic
aid and assistance." They aUol
called on the President "to do
everything within your gnat
power to urge Saudi Arabia to
support the peace process."
Ivan Novick, president of the I
Zionist Organization of America,
noted that President Reagan hat
emphasized that Saudi Arabia ii
a "moderating force" in the Mid-1
die East. "If this is an accurate
assessment, then we can look for-
ward with considerable an-
ticipation that the family of Saud
will confirm these assumptions
by taking tangible and viable
. steps to distinguish Saudi Arabia
aa a moderate. '
United States has often been
asked by Saudi Arabia to prove
our good intentions. Now that
the sale of our most sophisticated
and secret weapons will go far-
ward, it ia the United States that
should expect from Saudi Arabia
that it prove its good intention*

I must take issue with Rabbi
Warshal's statements in his This
and That column in the issue of
Friday, September 18. He states
that he is a life-long Democrat
who voted for President Reagan.
President Reagan and Secre-
tary of State Haig's strong insis-
tence on the sale of AW ACS to
Saudi Arabia is a slap in the face
to Israel and to American Jewry.
Rabbi Warshal should know that
oil rules the world and that
decency and justice are no longer
factors in our country's decisions.
Does Saudi Arabia really need
the AW ACS? Is her safety and
security threatened. Isn't she
part of the Arab cabal that has
vowed not to rest until Israel is
destroyed. Is she not providing
money to the PLO, the terrorist
force of the Arab countries.
Hasn't Israel stated the AWACS
in Arab hands will make every
corner of Israel vulnerable.
You do not speak highly of
Menachem Begin. This puzzles
me. Begin is the greatest thing
that happened to Israel. He has
devoted a lifetime with one goal
in mind. A secure and strong
State of Israel. In his youth, he
was a terrorist who fought for an
ideal. "Israel." He suffered
severe privation, was a hunted
man, yet his strong determina-
tion in fighting the British was a
major force in their leaving in
The life of Israel is at stake.

has in the Middle East. Libya,
Iraq, Yemen, Syria are under
Soviet influence. Russia is bent
on gaining control of the Persian
Gulf and the entire Middle East.
Only Israel, the Hecon Light of
that area stands in her way.
On what basis can you state
that Reagan is pro Israel. He is
surrounded by a cabinet of mil-
lionaires with vast interests in
oil. His domestic programs to
date favor the wealthy. The dan-
ger is ever present that if it is a
question of oil or Israel, oil will
Rabbi Warshal, your strong
confidence in President Reagan
surprises me. Your likewarm feel-
ings towards Begin amazes me.
Let's lend our efforts towards one
goal, "a safe, secure and success-
ful State of Israel." For if she
falls, how safe are any of us.
Defray Beach
Warshal comments that in his
column of September 18, he was
decidedly less enthusiastic about
Reagan and more accepting of
Begin than Mr. Ostrich indicates
in his letter. Concerning Begin,
Rabbi Warshal wrote in that
column, "In fact, I respect what
one writer called his "incurable
candor." Menachem Begin is
probably one of the most honest
politicians walking the face of
this earth. I do not always agree
with him, and on internal Israeli
domestic issues, I rarely agree
with him, but it is hard not to re-
spect the man." Rabbi Warshal
does agree with the writer con-
cerning the rest of his comments.

The Conference on Jewish
Material Claims Against Ger-
many called upon all Jewish vic-
tims of Nazi persecution, who
may be eligible to receive grants
from the Claims Conference
Hardship Fund, to file their
applications not later than
December 31. More than 30 mil-
lion D.M. were paid out already
to eligible claimants.
The Hardship Fund is intended
primarily to handle applications
from such Jewish victims of Nazi
persecution who left Eastern
Europe after 1965 when the dead-
line for filing claims under the
German indemnification laws ex-
pired. Other persecutees who
failed for very valid reasons to
file timely indemnification claims
in past years may also apply to
the Hardship Fund.
The Claims Conference
assumed the responsibility for
the administration of the Hard-
ship Fund, which is funded by
the German Federal Government
and distributed under German
Government Guidelines. The
Guidelines limit individual
payment to D.M. 5.000 (five

to denounce its poisonous nature,

Wiesel declared that those who
were murdered in the Holocaust
"must not be killed again" by
forgetting them. He called on
survivors and liberators to "dedi-
cate ourselves not only to the
memory of those who suffered
but to the future of those who are
suffering today.''
IJews Warned Against
lapping Evangelicals
The theme of the conference is
a quotation from Wiesel, "For
the dead and the living, we must
bear witness." That theme of re-
membrance was also sounded by
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig, who welcomed the con-
ference to the State Department.
"We can bear the memory of the
Holocaust only if we strive to
prevent its reoccurrence," he
BUT HAIG also issued a more
pointed warning for today.
"Genocide succeeded because the
defenders of individual rights
allowed themselves to be
divided," he said, "because they
sought refuge in an illusion, in
weakness. They failed to fight for
their own principles."
Haig noted his visit to Yad
Vashem in Israel. "The Jewish
people have not lost their hope in
God, in themselves, in mankind,"
he said.
The ceremony opened under
the flags of the 14 nations par-
ticipating in the conference. Is-
rael was represented by veterans
of the World War II Jewish Bri-
gade. Three concentration camp
survivors carried in a Nazi flag
that flew over Dachau when it
was liberated. Miles Lerman, co-
ordinator of the conference, called
it a "flag of evil" and ordered it
folded and placed on the floor,
symbolically at the feet of the
Wiesel in his talk, stressed that
the conference must demonstrate
that war, the ultimate injustice,
cannot "be considered as a solu-
tion to any problem for war is
the problem."
and others was the fact that the
Nazis were defeated by a "unique
alliance of nations, gigantic
armies, transcending geopolitical
and ideological borders." Wiesel
noted that, by participating in
the conference, the victims and
their liberators, "rising above
politics, above the usual recrimi-
nations between East and West,"
may get the world "to pay more
attention to what hangs as
threats to its very future."
In addition to the United
States and Israel, the countries
represented were Belgium,

Ministers Exchange Some Sharp Words
But General Feeling is That Peace Process Must Continue
Egyptian I Foreign \ Minister
Hassan Ali during a three-day
visit to Israel, reassured that
Egypt, after the death of Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat, remains un-
changed in its commitment to the
peace process.
Ali declared that nothing has
changed in Egypt, except for the
sadness and sorrow over Sadat's
assassination. The very fact of
his visit here, which was sche-
duled before Sadat was killed
Oct. 6, was the best proof of
Egypt's policy and should serve
to dispel all doubts.
Ali was welcomed by Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon and spent
the afternoon in conference with
Sharon and his aides at the
'Defense Ministry on issues con-
cerning Israel's final withdrawal
from Sinai next April. Ali also
met with Premier Menachem
Begin and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir in Jerusalem for
wider ranging discussions on as-
pects of the peace process, in-
cluding normalization and auto-
nomy talks.
A NUMBER of public state-
ments and other issues clouded

the atmosphere of Ali's visit,
including his own statement! in an
interview that Israeli obduracy in
the autonomy talks had been a
contributory factor in Sadat's
assassination. Israeli sources
said Shamir intended to "clarify"
this statement with the Egyptian
Similarly, Egyptian sources
made it clear that Cairo took a
dim view of Shamir's assertion
that "Jordan is Palestine" and
can be ruled either by King
Hussein or by the Palestine
Liberation Organization. "For us
it is not important who rules this
state," Shamir said in an Israel
Radio interview.
This plainly echoed Sharon's
long-held view that Israel would
be better off if PLO chief Yasir
Arafat ruled in Amman, rather
than the ostensibly more mod-
erate and Western-oriented
Hashemite House of Hussein.
Sharon recently repeated his
belief that Israel made a "historic
error" in 1970, when, at the
request of President Nixon, it
mobilized in order to aid Hussein
who was fighting off PLO sub-
version and a pro-PLO Syrian
Asked about the prospect of
Soviet domination of an Arafat-
run Palestine-Jordan, Shamir
said "Israel cannot intervene in
the internal conditions of a
neighboring state.
Ministry retorted with a sharply-
worded statement branding
Shamir's remarks as a violation
of Camp David. "Egypt con-
siders this declaration a violation
of the concept of full autonomy as
expounded in the Camp David
agreements," the statement said.
It also blasted Israel's ongoing
settlement-building on the West
Bank. In a separate interview
with Israeli newspapers,
Egyptian Minister of State
But roe Ghali singled out the

Another factor clouded Ali's
visit was tough reaction that

Israel 'Regrets' AWACS Sale Approval
Israel has expressed
"regret" over the Senate's
approval of the sale of
AWACS reconnaissance
aircraft and other advanced
weaponry to Saudi Arabia
and said the deal repre-
sented "a new and serious
threat" to Israel which it
would have to "overcome."
The statement was released
following a special meeting of the
Cabinet convened by Premier
Menachem Begin to assess the
situation after the U.S. Senate
upheld the $8.5 billion arms
package which Israel had
vigorously opposed. It noted
pointedly President Reagan's re-
peated commitments to maintain
Israel's qualitative military
superiority in the Middle East
and to establish strategic co-
operation with Israel.
" WE HOPE these words ol
the President will be realized,"
Begin said after reading the Cab-
inet's statement to reporters. He
released the text of a letter he re-
ceived from Reagan in which the
President said, "I reiterate my
pledge that America continues to
be committed to Israel, to main-

Israel's Arms Buying

LONDON (JTA) Israel';
per capita defense expenditure*
rose sharply this year and re-
mains by far the highest in the
world except for oil-rich Saudi
Arabia. The sum spent for de-
fense in 1981 was $1,836 for every
man, woman and child in the
Jewish State, up from $1,333 in
1980. The Saudis spent $2,664
per capita. The United States, in
contrast, will spend only $759
and Britain $512 for each of their
Saudi Arabia's 1961 defense
spending of $27 billion is bigger
than that of any country in
Western Europe except Britain.
Its increase alone since last year
amounted to about $7 billion,
equal to Israel's entire 1981 de-
fense spending.
These figures were published
recently by the International
Institute For Strategic Studies in
its annual military balance
sheets. They showed that Israel
also leads the world in its defense
budget's portion of her gross na-
tional product. Although it has
fallen to 23 percent from 35 per-
cent last year and a staggering 50
percent in 1976, it remains at a
level unmatched anywhere else.
The Soviet Union and Syria
come next. Their defense bills
range from 12 to 14 percent of
GNP. Most other countries are in
low single digits.
In its introduction to the mil-
itary balance, the Institute said it
saw no slow-down in arms ex-
ports to the Middle East and oth-
er areas of the Third World from
the Soviet Union, United States
or Europe. "The sales of very
high performance aircraft con-
tinue to provide a form of
diplomatic currency in the Near
East with a number of countries
seeking primarily high per-
formance American aircraft." the
report said.
The net effect, the Institute
observed, is to raise questions
over the ability of some states to
assimilate weapon systems. The
military balance identifies no
fewer than 60 major arms deals

added, "This Administration has
a permanent interest in working
with Israel on a broad basis on
strategic problems. These efforts
serve our common interest."
The Cabinet statement was
drafted by Begin himself. Several
ministers reportedly felt that Is-
rael should not, at this early
stage, refer to Reagan's pledges
of arms aid and strategic co-
operation on grounds that it
might imply that Israel was re-
conciling itself to the AWACS
deal and was seeking compen-
Begin replied, according to
Cabinet sources, that there was
no point "playing broigtz"
(anger) with the U.S. He said the
Cabinet expressed precisely what
it felt, feared and hoped.
The statement also took a con-
ciliatory tone toward those Sen-
ators who supported the
Administration on the AWACS
sale and those who opposed it but
switched sides at the last minute.
It expressed appreciation to the
48 Senators who cast their votes
against the deal. The statement
regret over the Senate's decision
on the proposal by the Ad-
ministration for the double arms
deal to Saudi Arabia. (Saudi Ara-
bia is) a country which is in a
state of war with Israel, oppose*

finances terrorism in our region.
"The debate in Washington
was long. Friends of Israel, re-
gardless of origin or political out-
look, fought the just struggle
bravely and nobly. We express
our appreciation for their efforts.
We are mindful too that many of
those who supported the deal and
of those who shifted from oppo-
sition to support admire Israel's
standing and Israel's policy in
the Middle East and in the free
world and harbor warm feelings
in their hearts for our nation and
for our country."
France Shows Film
Indifference to War
PARIS (JTA) French
State Television has shown for
the first time a 12-year-old film
"The Sorrow and the Pity" which
describes the average French-
man's reaction, or as many say
"lack of reaction," to the Nazi
occupation of France and the de-
portation of most of the country's
Though the film was shot in
1969 by top European director
Max Ophuls, France's three tele-
vision channels refused to show it
and most country-wide distri-
butors banned it from mass au-
dience cinemas. One of the first
decisions of the new television
management, appointed after
last May's Socialist victory, was
to acquire the film for national
programming in prime time.
The four-hour film describes
with the help of war-time news
reels France's disinterest in the
Nazi occupation and its con-
sequences. The movie-n

Sex Study Shows
Israelis Said to Have
Less Know-HowBut
They're More Liberal
HAIFA In one of the first-
ever national studies of Israeli
sexual attitudes, students in
Israel's four medical schools were
found to be "significantly less
knowledgeable; in sexual mat-
ters" than their American
In addition, the Israelis were
found to be "more conservative
in most attitudes regarding
sex" than American students.
However, when researchers
eliminated all but heterosexual
relations from their questioning,
the "majority of our (Israeli)
students seemed rather liberal."
The study was carried out by re-
searchers in the Technion Facul-
ty of Medicine.
"This apparent discrepancy
might be explained by differences
between countries in definitions
of liberal and conservative,"
noted Dr. Zwi Hoch. who super-
vised the survey.
THUS ISRAELIS were "con-
servative" in American terms in
relation to such things as homo-
sexuality. But when it camt to
heterosexual relations, they were
liberal. For example, only 6.4 per
cent of the male medical
students, and none of the fe-
males, said they were still virgins
when they began their studies A
similar survey in the U.S. found
some 15 per cent of the males,
and 35 per cent of the females
still virgins at a comparable
period of their lives.
Among its other findings, the
survey noted:
Some 21.8 per cent of the
medical students had used abor-
tion "as a contraceptive
Seven per cent of the students
9 per cent fo the men and 3 per
cent of the women, said they had
experienced homosexual rela-
tions. Only 3.4 per cent had ex-
perienced such relations more
than once.
A very low percentage of
Israeli students had ever had re-
lations with prostitutes only
about 12 per cent, compared with
a figure of some 75 per cent in the
United States.
American and Israeli medical
students were in agreement on
one factor, the possible influence
of extramarital sex on a mar-
riage; 46 per cent thought it
would have a negative effect on
narriage, 19 per cent thought it
uld strengthen -a marriage.
with the rest undecided.
THE NATIONAL study was
conducted by researchers in |
Technion s Faculty of Medicine
in order to help set up a human
sexuality course more suitable for
the specific needs of Israeli medi-
cal students. Students at the
Technion faculty, Hadasaah,
Ben-Ourion University, and Tel
Aviv medical schools took part.
Data on background, sexual ex-
perience, knowledge and at-
titudes were analyzed and com-
pared to findings of similar
studies in other countries.
According to a report in the
Israeli medical journal Harefuah,
most Israeli senior medical
students were "unmarried,
Ashkenazi males, with a small
proportion of females, Jews of
Asian or African origin,
Moslems, and Christians. Sex
education during childhood
originated mostly from peers and
literature, but was almost com-
pletely lacking in school."
Most of both saxes had dated,
gone steady, and had frequent
sexual intercourse with at least
two partners, according to the
Mubarak Said to Assure
Peres on Jerusalem's Unity
Party Chairman Shimon Peres,
returning from a one-day visit to
Cairo, said that President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt assured him
he intended to carry on the peace
process with Israel initiated by
the late President Anwar Sadat.
He also said that Mubarak made,
it clear that he does not want to
see Jerusalem divided.
Peres, who headed a Labor
Party delegation to the Egyptian
capital, said, "Mubarak assured
us, m the clearest possible
manner, that he continued
Sadat's policy of working for an
undivided Jerusalem, though the
various ethnic groups in Jerusa-
lem should be allowed to give ex-
pression to their own interests."
He said the delegation was also
given assurances that the peace
process would be broadened after
Israel completes its withdrawal
from Sinai next April.
Peres came under attack from
Geula Cohen, a leader of the
ultra-nationalist Tehiya Party
which opposes the peace treaty
with Egypt and is demanding
that Israel abandon its commit
ment to withdraw from Sinai.
Cohen accused the Labor Party
leader of "mintseding ttxipnhhY "
She claimed that "As everybody
knows, both Anwar Sadat and
Hosni Mubarak really wanted
and still want to divide sover-
eignty in Jerusalem."
Pares and his dslegstion laid i
wreath on Sadat's grave and pak
a condolence visit to the late
President's widow, Jihan Sadat.

The Decline of Socialism
HAIFA One of the greatest
disappointments of Israel's
Labor Party (second only to its
loss in the election), has been the
almost complete collapse of its
program of support from fellow-
Socialist parties in other coun-
tries. From tune to time leaders
of American trade unions used to
be brought to the country as evi-
dence of such support. Socialist
leaders elsewhere, seeking power
in their own countries, were often
eloquent in their praise of Israel
where a Labor Government
seemed to be firmly entrenched.
The anti-Zionism of the old
Jewish Socialist Bund in eastern
Europe was conveniently over-
looked, even when the Russian
Bund joined the Communists;
the Polish Bund retained its pure
Socialist and anti-Zionist stand
until it was wiped out by the Nazi
invasion. The bitter anti-Zionist
of Ernest Bevin. Britain's Labor
leader come to power was seen
as a temporary aberration. It
could also be maintained that

tional message on it. Rabbi Merle

was able to determine that Anya
had scribbled the Hebrew word
"Shalom" next to her name.

Germany's Socialist Chancel-
lor Helmut Schmidt trod a care-
ful path, but in a revealing state-
ment declared that his country
had to be mindful of its "moral

That a German head of State
could speak of Germany's "moral
obligations" to those who first
taught the world the use of inter-
national terrorism as a political
weapon, was a shock to many in
Israel who when they thought
that if Germany had moral obli-
gations it referred to something
else entirely.
The surprising upset in the
French elections brought joy to
the Israel Labor Party. It was
predicted that the "traditional"

Socialist Party, phis the personal

country, would now transform
France into one of Israel's best
friends in Europe. But Socialism

VIENNA Austrian police have arrested a Pal-
estinian who they believe planned and organized the
killing of Vienna City Councilman Heinz Nittel and the
attack on the synagogue in the Austrian capital. Accord-
ing to the Interior Ministry, police in Salzburg arrested
Bahij Younis, 28, who was carrying a Jordanian passport.
A search of his home produced a number of hand-
guns, hand grenades, and several Arab passports. Police
believe he is one of the top organizers of the extremist
Palestinian groups, Al Asifa, headed by Abu Nidal.

29, where two persons were killed and 18 injured, two
terrorists were apprehended. They claimed to be members

In both terrorist acts, Radjai said, he received in-

Greek Minister Says U.S.
Must Deal With Palestinians
WASHINGTON (JTA) Prime Minister An-

with the Palestine Liberation Organization if it wants to
achieve peace in the Middle East.
Papandreou, appearing from Athens on the ABC-TV

status of the PLO office in Athens to a diplomatic mission
in order to stress this point. He said that just as Israel has
the right to a state of its own, so do the people of Pales-

Jewish Quiz Box
I JTA Feature)
Question: Why is a Jewish
father required to redeem his first
born son, the first born of the
child's mother, by giving the re-
demption fee to a Kohen (of the
priestly family of Aaron)?
Answer: Basically, this is an
outright commandment men-
tioned in the Bible (Numbers,
Chap.8). A variety of reasons are
offered to explain this require-
ment. First, this stems from the
general requirement to under-
stand that everything we achieve
comes from the Almighty. That
is why it is required to offer the
first fruits of the harvest, the
first bom of certain animals, etc.
to the Almighty. Thus the first
born son of the family must be
recognized as belonging to the
Almighty. However, when it
comes to humans the tradition
did not want us to actually relin-
quish our children and so a
method of redemption was set up
so it would be possible to redeem
the first born males. Second, ori-
ginally all first born males were
assigned to duties in the holy
temple. They were the priests.
Later, the priestly family of
Aaron was substituted for the
first bom of the population to be
the priests. This still did not ex-
cuse the first bom males of the
general population from becom-
ing priests and so the redemption
ceremony was instituted to re-
lieve them of this requirement.
Third, a historical element is in-
troduced. At the end of the en-
slavement period in ancient
Egypt, every first born of the
Egyptians was fatally smitten
while the first born of the
Hebrews were spared. The re-
demption ceremony of the first
born males today reminds us of
this saving grace and asks us to
redeem our first bom males as a
token of our appreciation to the
Almighty for having spared the
first bom at that time. Some
trace the meaning of this require-
ment to the story of Jacob and
Esau of the Bible where Jacob
actually bought the right to the
status of being a first born from
his brother Esau (Midrah B mid
bar Rabbah, Chap. 4). The
ceremony thus insures the right
of being the first bom to the son
who demonstrates its value to
him by the fee rendered from the
father to the priest as a represen-
tative of the Almighty.

need plan should cover everything
associated with a funeral. Guaranteed
Security is the complete pre-need plan
that assures you that your own spe-
cific desires are respected and that
there are no unexpected or additional
financial obligations for your family.
Are you aware that mosf pre-need
plans do not cover all funeral expenses?
Guaranteed Security does. It covers
more than just the funeral expenses,
it also provides price protection for
outside charges including the rabbi,
limousines, transportation, cemetery
charges and even certified documents.
Find out how you can transfer to
Guaranteed Security and get full
credit for your existing pre-need
plan. Call any of our chapels for
an appointment with a pre-need
