Sharon Draws Borderline;
Infraction Means War
JERUSALEM (ZINS) Defense Minister Ariel
won said last week in a television interview that Israel
I established "red lines" whose crossing by Arab states
nld trigger armed Israeli reaction. These included pro-
.tion or possession of nuclear weapons, the movement
[Syrian troops into Southern Lebanon, the movement of
iq's troops into Syria or Jordan, or the movement of
yptian troops into the Sinai demilitarized zone.
IN THE EVENT of such Syrian or Iraqi movement
aron said, "Israel would find itself at war immedi-
>ly." Sharon was not specific about Israeli reaction in
i case of Egypt, but he said that "we made it very clear
we will not be willing to accept any violation of the
ement large or small."
He said, "that Israel was proceeding with the Sinai
dlout, but had taken precautions to avoid disaster if
jt reading of Egyptian intentions proved erroneous. The
fsumption guiding Israel now, however, was that Egypt
ncerely wants peace, he said.

a keynote speaker lor this event
two years ago and is the leading
authority on Soviet Jewry in the
United States.
Bayer is Director of the Inter-
national Commission of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council
which is the coordinating body
for over 100 local Jewish Com-
munity Councils and Federations
and 11 national Jewish Commu-
nity Relations Agencies. He has
special responsibility for Soviet
Jewry Advocacy but is also
engaged in the range of interna-
tional concerns including Jews in
Arab countries, Latin America,
Ethiopian Jews, unprosecuted
Nazis and Holocaust education.
He was National Executive of
the American Jewish Conference
for Soviet Jewry from 1968 to
1971 and was in the forefront of
mobilizing American response to
the first arrests and trials of im-
migration activists in 1970. Mr.
Bayer has visited with Refuse-
niks in the Soviet Union several
times, in Moscow, Kiev, Lenin-
grad and Vilnius. He was one of
the American organizers of the
first and second World Confer-
ence of Jewish Communities on
Soviet Jewry held in Brussels in
1971 and 1976.
He has been involved in the
commission on the Holocaust ap-
pointed by President Carter in
1979 and is a special advisor to
its successor body, the United
States Holocaust Memorial
Council. He was a member of the
steering group of the World Ga-
thering of Jewish Holocaust Sur-
vivors which met in Israel in
June. 1981.
Lou Lefkowitz, Chairman of
the Community Relations
Council stresses the importance
of continual activity and pressure
concerning the freedom of three
million Soviet Jews. "It is so
easy to get tired since we must
keep this issue alive year after
year after year. And yet, if we
were virtually imprisoned within
the Soviet Union, we would
expect our fellow Jews worldwide
never to let us down and never to
tire. I hope to see our entire
Jewish community in attendance.
I promise them that Abe Bayer is
an informative and inspiring
speaker. It will be a most worth-
while evening."

Maior Gifts Dinner to be Held Jan. 23

James Baer, President of the
outh County Jewish Federation
ounces that Albert Segal will
in his Sanctuary home the
jor gifts dinner for donors over
0.000onJan.23.
[ This division is jointly spon-
by the Federations of
fwood, Lauderdale, Palm
tch and South County.
Segal will host division
nbers from these four Federa
as well as the National
lan of the U J A who will be
I sttendance.
I Walter Fiveson, Division
ian for South County said,
i delighted that Al Segal has
t only contributed over
"D.000 to theFederation-UJA
npaign this year but that he
1 been gracious enough to open
home to this event. I would
to see at least four or five
Albert Segal
men in this division from South
County for this year."
Segal was co-founder and
chairman of the board of Pic 'N
Pay Stores Inc., a chain of over
500 retail shoe stores throughout
the United States. He has
recently retired from that
position.
A lite-long resident ot cnar-
lotte, N.C., he was Campaign
Chairman and President of the
Charlotte Federation. He is a
past member of Temple Israel of
Charlotte Board of Directors and
a member of the Mobile Mystic
Shrine Masons of North Carolina.
Segal is currently a member of
the National Campaign Policy
Board of the UJA. He has made
10 trips to Israel to personally
inspect conditions over the past
15 years. He has particular in-
terest in the inner-city poverty
areas. In response to this need, he
recenth/ contributed $100,000 to
the Project Renewal, a special
campaign focusing on these
deprived neighborhoods. That
gift was separate and above his
annual gift to the general
campaign.
Segal said, "If everyone could
see with his own eyes the needs of
Israel, he would open his heart
and his pocketbook to the utmost
extent of his means. I have been
blessed with prosperity, and I
want to share that with my fellow
Jews in Israel. I hope that by es-
tablishing this new division of
over $100,000 givers, we can
inspire others to come forth and
respond to the very human needs
of Jews in need- It is so much
easier just to give your money
and keep quiet. I have joined this
major gifts division and I have
opened my house to its dinner be-
cause I feel that if we make a
little noise, if we let people know
what others are trying to do,
maybe we can move some
hearts."

Kirkpatrick Views on Israel jMay Embarrass Reagan
By DAVID HOROWITZ
UNITED NATIONS In
what appears to be one of the
sharpest condemnations of the
PLO. as well as criticism of lead-
ing Americans within the Ad-
ministration possibly also who
have been flirting with Israel's
enemies, Ambassador Jeane
Kirkpatrick surprised many here
at the UN with a feature story
appearing in the current issue of,
The New Republic under the
caption. "Dishonoring Sadat'
and subtitled. The PLO Is Not a
Peace Partner."
Judging by the revelatory con-
tents of the article and its out-
spokenness, one may wonder
whether or not it had the prior
approval of the President and the
Secretary of State. One thing is
certain: it is something both
Reagan and Haig should ponder
seriously.
"It is shocking, so soon after
his (Sadat's) death.'* Kirkpatrick
concludes, "influential Ameri-
cans should be proposing solu-
tions (the Saudi Peace plan?) that
would take us down the pathway
Sadat scorned. It is especially
shocking that they should sug
gest negotiating with the deadli-
est enemies of peace in the area.
These individuals should he
aware that the path they propose
will only add to the Soviet
Union's capacity to foment
troubles. Powerful forces hostile
to U.S. interests and Israel's sur-
vival are at work today dimin-
ishing Sadat's legacy
EXPRESSING some concern
that the death of Sadat may
significantly alter the shape of
the world and lead to the balkani-
zation of the Middle East, the
eloquent and dynamic Ambas-
sador devotes the greater part of
her exposition to the peril which
the Soviet-supported PLO poses
to the region.
As for the assumption made by
some that there is unity among
the Arabs, she says "nothing
could be more mistaken. Arab
nations remain divided among
themselves and frequently within
their own borders as well: Iraq is
enmeshed in a seemingly endtoaa
war with Iran. Libya's Kaddafy
has stepped up his violent cam-
paign to spread Islamic radical-
ism through North Africa and the
Middle East. Syria, whoa* 28.000
troops more often disturb the
peace in Lebanon than enforce it,
is threatened internally by pres-
sures from fundamentalist Sunni
Moslems and also by intense
hostility from Iraq. Lebanon,
meanwhile, has almost suc-
cumbed to the complicated and
violent struggles among
Maronites and Moselms. Syria
and Israel, the PLO and the Had
dad forces protecting the
Christian and Shiite enclave in
the South. The Government of
Morocco is challenged by the
violent demands of the Polisario.
In 1979. the regime in Saudi
Arabia was the object of an at-
tempted coup by an unholy alii
ance of religious extremists and
political radicals. Even more than
Saudi Arabia. Jordan has felt the
destabilizing effects of radical
policies introduced into the area

Three MK's Move Near Yamit
Aim to Block Sinai Evacuation Next April
By URI BENZIMAN
JERUSALEM (JTAI -
Three members of the 120-mem-
ber Knesset have recently taken
up residence in or near Yamit. the
main township in the Rafah
region of northeast Sinai which
Israel will evacuate next April.
They are Geula CohenandHanan
Porat of the Tehiya faction and
Rabbi Haim Druckman of the ex-
treme rightwing of the National
Religious Party. A fourth MK.
Tehiya leader Yuval Neeman.
says that he too is contemplating
the move.
The declare purpose is to ex-
press in this way their opposition
to the puliout from Yamit and the
rest of the Rafah region, sched
uled for next April under the
terms of the Israel-Egyptian
peace treaty As such, these MKs
are breaking no law or violating
no regulation. Nevertheless, their
move raises questions of pub-
ucethics and parliamentary
responsibility
UNDER THE Members of
Knesset immunities law: Rights
and Duties" enacted in 1961. a
Knesset member "shall not sub-
ject to either civil or criminal
process, and will be immune from
any legal action against him. in
regard to his vote, or his opinion,
or any action he has taken
either inside the Knesset or out-
side the Knesset if that vote,
that expression of opinion, or
that action was a part of the way
in which he fulfils his role as a
member of the Knesset.''
This deliberately wide and
catch-all formulation gives effec-
tive protection to MKs against
any attempt to prosecute or sue
them because of their political ac-
tivities. The legislature intended
and indeed succeeded in
providing its members with well
nigh perfect freedom to function
as representatives of the public.
It enabled them to describe their
political activities even if such
activities would be illegal if done
by others as "part of the way
in which he fulfils his role as a
member of the Knesset.''
So far Cohen. Porat and
Druckman have not violated any
law. The Yamit-Rafah area is
open to free movement and
normal access and the three MKs
followed the normal procedures in
setting up homes there in empty
houses. Moreover, their decision
to leave their homes and take this
symbolic step of resettling them-
selves and their families in Yamit
can most certainly be defined as
" part of the way in which they
fulfil their roles as members of
the Knesset." Their purpose,
after all, is to make a legitimate
demonstration of their political
views.
BUT THE ethical and demo-
cratic problems arise not out of
strict legalism. but out of the fact
that the Knesset itself, by an
overwhelming majority, has
resolved that this area is to be
evacuated as part of the peace
with Egypt. Furthermore, the
anti-withdrawal, anti-peace
treaty views of these three MKs
were very recently put to the ul-
timate democratic test that of
the ballot-box and found to
represent only a very small pro-
portion of Israeli public opinion.
Tehiya won three seats in the last
election.
It is therefore most relevant to
ask of these three MKs: What is
the moral basis of their act of
demonstration against the imple-
mentation of the peace treaty?
But the problem is more
serious and more down-to-
earth than a mere ethical debate
Though the three MKs have
not broken any law, they have
dearly given inspiration and en-
couragement to others who. it
appears, do intend to break the
law and take illegal actions in
their struggle against the
evacuation

No thanks. I don't want tact to conflict with my views'
Ogastasal
nationalism. Nearly Iran teeters
on the brink of anarchy And,
of course, the threat of Soviet ex-
pansion hangs over the entire re-
gion ..."
Ambassador Kirkpatrick refers
to the "decades since the
establishment of Israel," noting
that "the Palestine issue has un-
dergone a subtle change. A myth,
she charges, "has been built on
the foundation of the genuine
problem of Palestinian refugees:
the myth that the Palestinian
problem is a barrier to the inte-
gration of the Arab homeland.'
Alongside this myth has
developed the extraordinary be-
lief that only the presence of
Israel stands in the way of
achieving Arab unity and inte-
gration, and peace and stability
in the Middle East This is
patently false..."
"IN THIS Arab world where
faith and politics are linked," she
continues in her castigation of
Israel's enemies, "traditionalists
and radicals. Saudis and Libyan
can unite in hostility against tatl
State of Israel whose right tol
exist they deny, whose very exis-1
tence they refuse even tol
acknowledge, whose name theyl
refuse to utter, calling Israel in-1
stead the 'Zionist entity' or thai
deformed Zionist entity.' Not oak I
has Palestinian nationalism dm
come centrally identified with I
Pan-Arab nationalism, but tatl
PLO, using fair means and fouU
has won wide acceptance as tail
spokesman for Palestinian rights I
and interests. The PLO preaches I
a brand of Palestinian nl
tionalism and radical politics that I
links the struggle for the destruc-1
tion of Israel to the triumph all
violent, Soviet-sponsored revohil
tionaries in Nicaragua, El Salva-
dor, Africa, the Middle East -
indeed, everywhere. Moreover, |
the PLO has linked the destruc-
tion of Israel to the Soviets' I
global agenda. No wonder the j
Kremlin has now added to its I
supply of military hardware for
the PLO the prize of full diplo-1
ma tic status."

All these, she believes, would
justify, in terms of international
law, Israel's demand for "re-

State determined on national
suicide would pursue this (with-

COHEN PREDICTS that if
the whole of Sinai is returned as
scheduled, the Egyptians will
immediately embark on a major
diplomatic initiative, strongly
and widely supported in the in-
ternational arena, to pressure Is-
rael over Judaea and Samaria.
Israel will then be bereft of its
main "card" the strategic
chunk of Sinai still in its
possession. Moveover, she says,
the withdrawal will weaken Israel
strategically and morally and
will thus serve as an eventual
"enticement to war."
Says Cohen: "I believe that
non-withdrawal is not only vital
but also possible. If the
government doesn't want it, then
the will of the people must force
the government to change its
stand ... If the government tries
to use its right to force, we shall
use our force of right and I
believe that we can triumph. ."

ment against withdrawal.

THIS LATTER consideration
is now under threat, however, be-
cause the anti-withdrawal move-
ment has made common cause
with dissatisfied Yamit residents
still haggling with the govern-
ment over levels of compensa-
tion. These residents are now
threatening that they will join
the movement, and refuse to
leave, unless the government
agrees to substantially raise their
compensation sums.
The compensation issue is
complex: Rafah area fanners get
more than Yamit urban shop-
keepers, on the grounds that it
costs more to start a new farm in-
land than to open a new shop.
The shopkeepers or some of
the do not accept the justice of
the argument. At any rate, the
"mutual exploitation" (in the
words of one key official) between
anti-withdrawal activists and
disgruntled Yamit residents is
plainly worrying the government
here in Jerusalem.

HIGH GOVERNMENT
sources concede that they face an
agonizing dilemma. The anti-
withdrawal movement is gather-
ing strength and adherents from
dat to day; yet the majority feel-
ing in the Cabinet is that the
government should not force a
showdown at this early stage, six
months before the Apr. 26 with-
drawal deadline. That would only
play into the movement's hands,
the sources explain.
Better, than, if there must be a
showdown and a use of force,
to confine it to the immediate
week or two before the with-
drawal deadline. The national
trauma of withdrawal will be
deep enough; there is no point
extending and deepening it
over a period of many months,
the sources say.
In addition, the government
sources indicate, by April most of
the authentic Rafah Raea resi-
dents will have taken their com-
NEW YORK A noted
international strategy ex-
pert argues, in a new
American Jewish Com-
mittee Task Force report,
that unless the United
States regains military
credibility, its foreign poli-
cies are doomed to failure
and the prospects for peace
will diminish.
Prof. Walter Laqueur, chair-
man of the International Re-
search Council of the Georgetown
University Center for Strategic
and International Studies, is the
Principal author of "U.S. Defense
osture," prepared by a Task
Force on U.S. Defense Posture,
one of six Task Forces on the
1980s set up by the American
Jewish Committee during its
76th Anniversary year.
Prof. Laqueur relates in the
booklet that opponents of defense
spending question whether the
billions allocated to armaments
do indeed provide security for the
U.S., maintaining that such ex-
penditures fuel inflation and
waste resources that could be
used for more productive pur-
poses or social welfare.
BUT "the issue is not quite so
straightforward," Prof. Laqueur
counters, pointing out that in an
earlier period when U.S. defense
spending was very high until
about 1968 the country's in-
flation rate was at its lowest.
He adds that "a liberal, Key-
nesian argument" could be made
for heavy arms expenditure since
even socially wasteful invest-
ments be it digging holes in
the ground or building tanks"
could revive a slack economy.
Prof. Laqueur also takes up the
arguments of those who do not
oppose a stronger defense in
principle but believe it can be
done more cheaply or who fear
that arms races lead to war, along
with the arguments of those who
believe there is a tendency to
overstate the dangers facing this
country.
But most wars are not caused
by arms races, he asserts, but
rather by changes in the balance
of power. He offers Iraq aa an ex-
ample, pointing out that Iraq had
been hostile to Iran for years but
attacked only when Iran had
been weakened by domestic tur-
bulence.
"THE REAL and crucial issue
now facing America," Prof.
Laqueur continues, is not what
allies spend or do not spend on
armaments but whether we "con-
front real dangers or figments of
the imagination."
There is no doubt, he asserts,
that Soviet military power has
increased, while U.S. military
spending has been declining.
While it is true, he continues,
that the Russians have trouble
keeping their European empire
under control, he denies the claim
of other scholars that the global
drift toward the Soviet union is a
myth.
The Russians have managed to
expand their sphere of influence,
and their Warsaw Pact is in
better shape than NATO, he in-
sists, aa European responses to
Soviet pressures and threats
To the argument that "the
Soviet Union is no longer the
only, probably not even the main
danger facing the U.S.," and that
the main conflicts in the 1980s
are likely to be political rather
than military, Prof. Laqueur
replies that while military capa-
bility can never replace foreign
policy, "it is also true that with-
out this prerequisite no effective
foreign policy can be conducted."

Growing Problem
::
::
Jewish-Hispanic Rift
In cities across America where there is signifi-
cant Jewish and Hispanic representation, the public
relations impulse is to suggest that both com-
munities are finding newer and stronger ties between
them every day.
But the truth is, as some American Jewish
Committee research shows, that the ties are few and
far between. For one thing, there is the upcoming
phenomenon in the '80's of what AJC's research pin-
points as group identity vs. individual merit.
Translated, this means the increasing struggle,
on the one hand, between groups in the United States
that regard themselves as minorities and that de-
mand special handicap points to help them make it in
the general culture; and, on the other, individual
Americans who prefer not to be offered such handi-
cap points in the form of, say, equal access-equal
opportunity legislation but rather to compete on the
basis of their individual talents.
Paradoxically, Jews are themselves a minority,
a fact which too many non-Jews seem inclined these
days to forget; and, against a backdrop of their
minority experience in America at the end of the 19th
and beginning of the 20th Century, they see their
achievement in the national fabric in individual
terms. In short, nobody helped them because they
were Jews and to the disadvantage of others as a
result. Quite the contrary, they made it in the face of
enormous religious prejudice against them.
The AJCommittee's research shows that ancil-
lary to the phenomenon of individual merit vs. group
identification is the growing Hispanic demand for
quotas to assure the mobility upward of the Hispanic
community as a group. As longtime victims of
American discrimination against them, Jews are
opposed to quotas.
Seen in these terms, Jews must view with in-
creasing alarm both demands of the Hispanic com-
munity as central to their well-being: a) quotas; and
b) acceptance via supportive discriminatory
-legislation against the majority of Hispanic group
identity as if it were an individual social force.
None of which helps the public relations view
that things between both communities are all sweet-
ness and light.
Sharon Has Tough Job
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon will be in Wash-
ington on Nov. 30 to speak with the Administration
about the details of the projected strategic relation-
ship between Israel and the United States. In a
sense, those talks are already dead.
Operation Bright Star, the military exercises in-
volving United States and Egyptian forces in
Egypt's desert, does not include Israel as a third
partner to the maneuvers.
In Miami this week, two members of a six-mem-
ber delegation from Israel, Likud MK Sarah Doron
and Labor MK Shlomo Hillel, told us that the Rea-
gan Administration apparently regards their country
as a "stepchild" in the new world of American for-
eign policy in the Middle East.
Doron and Hillel, and the other members of the
delegation headed by Moshe Ahrens, chairman of Is-
rael's Foreign Affairs Committee, are crisscrossing
the United States this week to meet with major Jew-
ish community leaders in order to voice these and
other concerns over the growing tilt by U.S. policy
planners toward Saudi Arabia to the clear disad-
vantage of Israel.
What Doron and Hillel reported to us is what we
have been suspecting all along: Capitol Hill moguls
say the right things about Israel, but they im-
plement few of them. In the clutch, the palm goes to
the Saudis.
Jewish Floridian
Urge Call-In Radio to Clean Up Act
" "......""" ss&x-Ktas
"Racial and -"- thet
MONTEREY, Calif. -
The American Jewish Com-
mitteee is calling on the
radio industry to look into
the "growing problem" of
inflammatory racial and
religious remarks on call-in
programs.
Testifying here before a meet-
ing of the Radio Code of the Na-
tional Association of Broad-
casters. Hyman Bookbinder,
AJC's Washington representa-
tive, stressed that AJC did not
advocate interference in the
freedom of broadcasters to con-
duct such shows.
HOWEVER, he continued, the
agency does believe that "steps
are needed to prevent misuse of
:he airwaves by anonymous, mis-
informed, trouble-making indi-
viduals." He urged the radio in-
dustry to adopt these guidelines:
Moderators must be aware of
the "dangers inherent in this
,ype of program," be sensitive to
group-hostility signs," know
how to cut off or rebut defama-
tory statements at once, and be
prepared to challenge the accu-
racy of any extremist assertion
on any subject.
Whenever possible, the
moderator should have in the
studio or on an open telephone
line a "knowledgeable, fair ex-
pert" to help conduct the pro-
gram when a particular subject is
under discussion. If the subject is
controversial, there should be an
expert on each side. Such guests
should be identified and their cre-
dentials noted.
Since entirely open-ended
shows are the most difficult to
control and correct, it is better to
stay with one subject at a time
and to announce the subject as
much in advance as possible.
Once the topic is determined, the
moderator should brief himself on
it thoroughly. When the modera-

tor feels uncomfortable handling
a particular subject by himself,
he should make special efforts to
get one or more expert guests.
It should be standard policy,
clearly enunciated by the
moderator, that abusive, bigoted
callers will be cut off at once.
Stations should explore the
possibility of having all callers
identify themselves, at least to
the station.
.The practice of screening calls
in advance to determine the
callers' intentions should be en-
couraged and developed.
No desire to have an exciting,
controversial show can justify
deliberate baiting of a caller in
order to encourage shocking
comments.
Broadcasters should explore
the possibility of using measures
comparable to those used in
the print media aimed at
evaluating, "correcting." re-
butting, or commenting on con-
troversial statements made on
call-in programs, particularly
when "important distortions"
have been revealed.
Either existing advisory
panels of citizens or special ones
created for the purpose should
monitor call-in shows and be
available for orienting modera-
tors to particular intergroup rela-
tions problems.
THERE IS concerned about
call-in shows, Bookbinder said,
because of the "intergroup rela-
tions dangers inherent in call-in
programs that are not produced
or moderated by persons sensi-
tive to the problem."
Bookbinder explained that
AJC had received complaints
about these shows over the years,
and as a result had supported a
pilot study to investigate the
contents of such shows.
Prof. Dennis T. Lowry of the
Temple University School of
Communications conducted the

Number U
Following is a Middle East Memo
position paper by the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations.
From the wonderful folks who brought you the
1973 oil embargo .
The most alarming result of the Reagan "vic-
tory" in the AWACS fight is not the Saudi deci-
sion to raise its oil prices by $2 a barrel, or its ac-
tion in cutting back oil production to end the oil
glut, or its success in helping OPEC get its act to-
gether, the better to bold up the oil-consuming
nations. (The additional cost to the United
States of the Saudi price increase, and thus to the
U.S. balance of payments, will be approximately
S9 million a day. or $3.28 billion a year, which
means the Saudis will be able to pay for the
largest arms package in history in a little over
two years from their latest oil price hike.)
Nor is it even the so-called "peace" plan of
Prince Fahd. which President Sadat called
"nothing new" and which Prime Minister Begin
described as "a plan how to liquidate Israel in
stages."
What is most troubling is the compulsion of the
Reagan Administration to approve every action
the Saudis take and every statement the Saudis
utter. Having invested every ounce of his prestige
and power to get the handful of votes needed to
win the Senate majority, President Reagan now
feels obliged to justify his action by defending
every move the Saudis make.
THUS, when the price of oil rose to $34 a bar-
rel, the White House comment was that "its ef-
fect will be to moderate the oil bLls we might
otherwise have to pay, making oil less expensive
in real terms than it is today." When the Saudis
announced they were cutting back oil production
by 500,000 barrels a day, the Administration was
silent. And when the smoke had cleared after the
AWACS battle, the Administration was able to
announce it had found virtue in a Saudi peace
plan that contradicts the Camp David process in
every detail.
Psychologists call this neurosis "over-identifi-
cation" or "introjectaon. As far as the Reagan
Administration is concerned, the Royal House of
Saud can do no wrong. For if Saudi ARabia

One of the most unique exped-
iences of my life was serving a
I congregation in Ann Arbor,
I Mich, that co-owned a religious
I structure with an Episcopal
I Church. Neither congregation
[rented from the other. Rather
they formed a third corporation
which held the property for the
benefit of both the Jewish and
Christian congregations. This ar-
rangement was entered into not
out of any phony sense of
ecumenism. It merely occurred to
two small congregations that if
they shared a building, they
could cut their expenses in half
and use their limited assets for
more meaningful programming.
There was no attempt to create
any common religious denomina-
tion. Both congregations
respected the unique religious
character of the other. In the pro-
cess I think both sides learned a
lot about themselves. This ar-
rangement, has been happily
shared for the last six years.
The other day I was reading
the Temple Bulletin which re-
printed an article by the Rever-
end Doug Evett, the priest of the
Episcopal Church, which origi-
nally appeared in his Church
Bulletin.
I feel that Doug's article gives
us all pause to reflect. I pass it
along to vou.

Baer Appointed President
Of Florida Region
At the General Assembly of
(the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions held this past week in St.
Louis with over 2,000 Jewish
I communal workers participating,
Junes B. Baer was appointed
President of the Florida Region
of the Council and was elected a
member of the National Board of
that organization.
The Council of Jewish Federa-
I lions is comprised of over 220
Federations in the United States
and Canada. It is the central co-
ordinating organization
representing Federations that
raise one-half of a billion dollars
per year on behalf of Israel and
American Jewish organizations.
The Florida region of the
Council of Jewish Federations is
comprised of 11 Federations
throughout the State that raise
over 40 million dollars per year.
Robert Aronson of the New York
office of the Council said, "James
Baer is not only recognized state-
wide as a community leader but
is well known on the national
scene as well. I believe that he
will repiesent Florida interests in
the Council in a most effective
way. I know that he will greatly
enrich our regional board."
Rabbi Bruce S. Warshal, when
James B. Baer
contacted by the Floridian said,
"Jim may be the hardest worker
that I have ever had the privilege
of dealing with in Jewish life. I
am delighted to see that our
national institutions take note of
him."
noble work of the day. Sermons
will be preached, songs sung,
prayers prayed, but the real
question is "Who's got the
kids?" (By the way. this favor
was initiated by the Sisterhood of
Temple Beth Emeth.)
"It has been long enough now
that St. Clare's and Beth Emeth
have shared this space (more
than 10 years Beth Emeth has
worshipped here, and we have
owned the building together since
December of 19741 that we tend
to take it for granted. Yet it is, of
course, something extraordinary.
Not simply in kinds of romantic
or sentimental ways, though we
are saying something about our
theology (that is, I think, that
the revelation of God is not
restricted to Christianity). More
in some deep sense of how good
we have been for one another.
"Through the determination of
some unique people; Bob Creel
and Shell Berry, and Steve Boat-
wick and Paul Vanek, and others,
St. Clare's and Temple Beth
Emeth decided to trust one
another. Part of what has come
out of that decision has been a
wonderful kind of energy, and
freedom from some kinds of fear.
Because we protect each other we
are greatly more free to be about
who we are. Beth Emeth has
grown and prospered greatly in
the last two or three years. Freed
from excessive building costs
they have been able to concen-
trate on their congregation. St.
Clare's has greatly matured as a
parish. We have cast off some of
the crippling feelings of being too
small and too weak to be about
this or that. Having for example,
our operating expenses greatly
reduced, we have been able to
work hard at education, and the
young, and have done well with
special offerings.
"We, of course, stand for
things larger than that. Our
common symbols are a reminder
to all who drive by that religious
intolerance and moral absolutism
will not do. Our sharing of the
property expresses the conviction
that things held too close inevi-
tably wither. Our own common
multi-use of the building is a re-
minder that people who receive
freedom from property taxes
have a responsibility to return as
much as possible to society.
"But today I am especially
taken with the idea that the de-
termination to trust someone else
is a lot more than a nice, or even
sort of Christian thing to do. It is
a source of a great deal of energy,
the creator of hope, and of course
in the end the only way for hu-
man beings to make a go of it.
"Not a bad thing, 1 think, in a
time when there has been let
loose much meanness in the
land."
.. .And Ahead to Update '82
I am so excited about the many
things that Women's Division
has done and is trying to accom-
plish this year, that I thought it
would be a good idea to bring all
of you up to date.
This is a year of firsts! This
summer we started planning a
special division for career women.
We had over 40 women in atten-
dance at our first meeting last
month.
The Shalom South County
Welcoming Committee was
initiated this September and to
date has had two suppers for ap-
proximately 60 new people in our
community. We have made them
feel welcome and have informed
them of the many Jewish organi-
zations for men and women in
South County. Many of our new-
comers have joined one or more of
these groups as well as partici-
pating in our Federation ac-
tivities.
As you have read in previous
Floridians, we had a Presidents
Coffee that was attended by the
presidents of the majority of
Jewish women's organizations.
We wanted them to know first
hand of the many services Feder-
ation provides locally so we took
them on a mini mission. The cul-
mination of this day is our Up-
date '82 Issues for Jewish
Women where we will honor
the presidents of all the women's
organizations in South County.
This powerpacked day has been
received so favorably by the com-
munity that a waiting list had to
be started three weeks before the
event.
We have a new division in
women's campaign. It is our Lion
of Judah Division which
represents a minimum gift of
$5,000. Thus far, we have more
than doubled the number of peo-
ple giving at this level.
The Advance Gifts, Paceset-
ters, Keynoters and Pioneer Di-
vision luncheons with their re-
spective minimum gift of $1,000,
$500, $300, and $150 have been so
successful in the past that they
will be continued.
Margie Baer
I cannot stress enough the im-
portance of EACH gift made to
Federation. Every gift is a major
gift if we are giving to the best of
our ability.
We must look into our hearts
and ask ourselves is our gift a
meaningful gift in relation to our
ability to give?
The chairmen from the various
divisions will soon be setting up
their committees. Please do not
be bashful and wait to be called.
Please call the Federation and
volunteer for the category in
which you wish to give.We have
only just begun, and we need
you.

Another FDP Bundestag
member, Helmut Schaefer, said
after Fahd's visit that the res-
trictions on arms sales should be
modified in the economic inter-
ests of the Federal Republic. He
said weapons deliveries to non-
NATO countries are necessary in
certain cases in order to contri-.
bute to the balance of power and
to good relations with West Ger-
many's friends. Schaefer's re-
marks are believed to reflect
Genscher's views.
The SPD-FPD joint body is
expected to formulate proposals
within the next few weeks to be
taken up by both coalition
factions separately. Observers
said President Reagan's victory
on the AWACS deal would
probably make it easier for Sch-
midt to get parliamentary sup-
port for arms sales to Saudi
Arabia.
THERE is, however, strong
opposition within the SPD.
Annemarie Renger, Vice Presi-
dent of the Bundestag and a
devoted friend of Israel, declared
over the weekend that the arms
sale to the Saudis will not go
through.
Returning from a visit to Jeru-
salem, Renger said that Premier
Menachem Begin had promised
her that Israel would welcome
Schmidt with all due respect
should he accept a long standing
invitation to visit Israel. Schmidt
has deferred the visit because of
differences with the Israehs over
a peace settlement in the Middle
East. The West German Chan-
cellor was the target of bitter per-
sonal attacks by Begin during
the Knesset, election campaign
last spring. Renger said Begm I
stuck was based largely on a
misinterpretation of remarks
made by Schmidt when he re,
turned from a visit to Saudi
Arabia earlier this year.
"I have explained the real in-
tentions of Schmidt to begin and
Stave been given the impression
hath* (Begin)iswimngtethnj
the matter over," Renger said.
She noted that "Begin a man
whose family was killed by the
NaZ He will do everything in
power to avoid any danger for
his country," she said.

"This was stated to us repeat-
edly," they said, in Washington
last week, where they met with
members of the Senate Armed
strategic relationship between
Israel and the United States, the
U.S. commitment to the cause of
Israel, the need to strengthen the
partnership between the two
countries.
"Nevertheless." said Doron,
"the United States has unques-
tionably embarked on a policy of
throwing its lot in with the Sau-
dis. No one in Washington would
deny that. And they have come
up with no answers to our
warning that this new friendship
between Washington and Riyadh
can only lead to a weakening of
the Camp David peace process to
which Israel and Egypt are com-
mitted."
Added Hillel: "This shift in
American emphasis in fact puts
Egypt's President Mubarak in a
difficult situation, not just us.
What is worse, it serves to ob-
scure even more the very risky
sacrifice that Israel has made in
the cause of peace under the
Camp David agreement. We are
giving up all of the Sinai. No one
seems to want to remember any
of that."

Behind Resurrection of Fahd's Peace
Israeli Team Here to Fight Fahd Peace Proposal
Two members of a dele-
gation of six Israelis who
arrived in the United States
last week to launch a
groundswell of public
opinion against the Prince
Fahd peace plan for the
Middle East were in Miami
this week to speak with
Jewish community leaders
about the progress of their
mission.
Sarah Doron, a Likud and Lib-
eral Party Member of the Knes-
set, and Shlomo Hillel, a Labor
MK, told The Jewish Floridian
that while they were in Washing-
ton, they heard all the right
things on Capitol Hill. "But we
didn't feel reassured," they said.
AS DORON and Hillel see it.
the United States is headed on a
course of building up Saudi
Arabia as its new foreign policy
pillar in the Middle East. "But
that pillar is based on sand,"
both delegation members sgreed.
"For one thing," said Hillel,
"there is the question of the stag-
gering rise in the amount of arm-
aments going to the Arabs these
days and not alone from the
United States, but also from Eu-
rope and the Soviet Union."
And Doron declared that it was
less a matter of the amount of
armaments than the technical
quality of these armaments. "So
far as this is concerned," she
said, "for the first time, Israel
finds itself in the position of
losing its No. 1 status as undis-
puted technological leader among
the military forces in the Middle
East."
DORON DENIED that it is
the sale of the five AWACS
planes to Saudi Arabia that spell
the- difference. "They won't be
delivered for another five years.
More important is the commit-
ment to ship new F-15's and
collateral enhancement equip-
ment for these jets to the Saudis,
including the Sidewinder.
Hillel said he was reasonably
certain that the shipments had
already begun.
Question: Why should these
shipments make such a tactical
difference to Israel's disad-
vantage if U.S. foreign policy
with respect to Saudi Arabia is
being buik on a pillar rooted in
sand?
The reply is instant and
unanimous: "The United States
does not take seriously, the
experience in Iran. The forces
militating against the Saud
Forces Committee and Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
Also with the national leadership
of both the Republican and
Democratic Parties.
And in their meetings with
Secretary of State Haig. National
Security Adviser Richard Allen
and President Reagan's personal
adviser Edwin Meese, they heard
this refrain over and over again
THEY TOLD us all the right

campaign to unseat the Pahlevi
dynasty in Teheran. The United
States appears mainly to think in

so far as a steady flow of oil to the
West is concerned
"BUT THE destabilizing of
Saudi Arabia will surely have
just as devastating an impact on
Israel. The more the United
States supplies the Saudis and
other 'moderate' Arab nations
with advanced sophisticated
weaponry, the greater the possi-
bility of Saudi destabilization."
Hillel defined "moderate Arab
nations" as "those willing to sell
petroleum for one dollar less per

By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Saudi Arabian
Crown Prince Fahd's eight-
point plan for a Middle
East peace which lay mori-
bund after it was first pro-
posed in August, now has
emerged as an international
issue which could harm the
Camp David process as well
as United States relations
with both Israel and Saudi
Arabia.
Part of the blame for this de
velopment is being placed on the
Reagan Administration which,
after rejecting the plan last
August, publicly said in late Oc-
tober that there were positive ele-
ments in the plan although some
of the eight points were items
that should await negotiations. ,
By the end of last week, thej
Administration was refusing all
comment on the Fahd plan ex-
cept to say "we are committed
and will continue to be com-
mitted to Camp David as the
only basis for continued nego-
tiations" toward peace.
BUT THE Administration's
original statements, coming in
the wake of Senate approval of
the sale to the Saudis of five
AWACS surveillance planes and
F-15 enhancement equipment,
added to Israel's belief that there
was a tilt in Washington against
Israel and toward the Arabs.
On the other aide. Prince Saud,
the Saudi Foreign Minister, has
announced that the Saudis will
seek United Nations General
Assembly rnrinieaniiii for the
Fahd plan and then aek the
Security Council to sponsor an
international conference in which
the Soviet Union would be in-
cluded
The I', Saudi move adda u
Reagan Administration concert
that the Arabs will box them
selves into a position where they
will be unable to retreat from
support of the Fahd plan, a situa-
tion similar to what happened a
few years ago when they anointed
the Palestine Liberation
Organization aa the only spokes-
man for the Palestinian people.
The Reagan Administration.
which had argued that the 98.6
billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia
was need to bring the moderate
Arab states into the peace
process, now faces a major con-
frontation with these states at
the UN.
In addition, the participation
of four West European countries
Britain,France, Italy and The
Netherlands in the force that
will patrol the Sinai after Israel's
final withdrawal next April is in
doubt. Lord Carrington, the Brit-
ish Foreign Secretary, while in
Riyadh, not only praised the
Fahd plan and echoed the Euro-
pean Economic Community
(EEC) position that the FLO
should have an enhanced role in
peace negotiations, but also criti-
cized the Camp David peace
process.
CARRINGTON may tilt
toward the Arabs more than, for
example, does French President
Francois Mitterrand, but as
chairman of the EEC's Council of
Ministers, Carrington was also
representating the Common
Market while in Riyadh. This led
Premier Menachem Begin to de
clare that Israel would veto the
participation of any country in
the Sinai force that rejected the
Camp David process.
Begin, meanwhile, was
reportedly gratified by Secretary
of State Alexander Haig's state-
ment last week declaring that the
U.S. considers the Camp David
process the only means of nego-
tiating peace in the area. The Is-
raelis are now expected to press
for greater U.S. involvement in
the autonomy negotiations.
Meanwhile, observers here are
still trying to assess why the
Reagan Administration decided
to make a public statement on
the Fahd plan only a few days af-
ter the AWACS sale was ap-
proved. Many believe that the
Administration, which had
argued that the Saudis would be
helpful in the peace process as a
result of the arms sale, wanted to
show that the Fahd plan was
proof of ru argument.
OTHERS POINT to the sur-
prise announcement during
Mitterrand'a recent visit to the
U.S. that the West Europeans
are corandermg joining the Sinai
force Some believe that an ex-
pression of approval for the Fahd
plan may have been the price the
Europeans exacted.
Both the Europeans, who
voiced support of the plan much
earner, and the Reagan Ad-
ministration, in finding positive
elements, pointed to implied
recognition of Israel What really
sat the Israelis off waa President
Reagan's remarks. "We couldn't
agree with all the points, nor
could the Israelis,'' Reagan said
"But it waa the first time they
had recognized Israel m a nation.
It a a beginning point of
nations "
What President Reagan and
others were referring to wss point
seven of the Fahd plan which said
"confirming the right of coun-
tries of the region to live in
peace." As former Foreign Min-
ister Abbs Eban pointed out here
last week, the Fahd proposal doss
not recognize the State of Israel,
nor do the Saudis call for nego-
tiations. Rather they rule out
talks with Israel.
BEGIN LABELED the Fahd
proposals a plan for the "liqui-
dation" of Israel, noting that it
called for a complete withdrawal
to the pre-1967 borders and the
establishment of a Palestinian
state, with Jerusalem as its
capital. The Saudis confirmed
that the PLO would rule this
state.
It is surprising that since the
memory of the late Anwar Sadat
has been brought into recent
debates on the Mideast, par-
ticularly the AWACS ssltl
Saudis, it has not been i__.

Question: Why is the letter
"Shin" found on both the left
side and on the right side of the
tefilin box which is placed on the
head?
Answer: It is claimed that the
letter "Shin" stands for the first
letter of "Shaddai" which is one
of the names for the Almighty.
One of the main purposes of don-
ning the tefillin on weekdays is to
keep the awareness of the Al-
mighty's presence active in the
mind of the Jew. Thus the "Shin"
of the head piece, the "Deled"
which comes about by the shape
of the ties of the tefillin band
around one's fingers, and the
"Yud" which is represented by
the knot of the tefillin of the arm-
piece, spell out the name of the
Almighty (i.e. "Shaddai").
Qeeatioa: Why is it that one of
the "Shin" letters on the head
piece has four strokes while the
other has three strokes?
Answer: Similar to the letters
of the Tan Commandment
plaques, the Shin of the tefillin It
considered to permeate through
the whole thickness of the tefillin

By Saudi Move to Bring

When the war in Europe ended,
Silverman responded to a call for
lawyers to help with the war
crimes trials. He volunteered and
assisted in bringing to justice the
German troops responsible for
the infamous "Malmedy in-
cident" in which an American
Infantry unit was massacred af-
ter surrendering to the Germans.
After the war, he and his wife,
Dorothy, started a business
which has since grown to be one
of the largest private leasing
companies in the United States.
Although they have leased
everything from fork lifts to ma-
chine tools, most of their busi-
ness is currently in computer-
related equipment. Still a family
business, North American

New York City, now includes
their two daughters, Carol, and
Joan, their son, Lorin, son-in-law,
Ben, and daughter-in-law, Patty.
"A Jewish Chapel at West

country which Jews have demon-

be a symbol, too, of the religious
harmony and liberty for which
this country has always stood. It
is a cause that is close to my
heart," Silverman said.

the United States had been
taken by surprise by the pro-

"We are committed and con-

sis for continued negotiations,"

berg said.
He had no comment on the
Fahd proposal, a position the
Reagan Administration has
taken all week following the
strong Israeli negative reaction
to UJ. expressions of interest in
some parts of the plan.
ROMBERG confirmed that

criticize the statements attacking
the Camp David accords by
Carrington in Riyadh
The four countries are con-

Romberg said the United

a site overlooking the historic
West Point Parade Grounds, be-

West Point has a long, un-

uating class consisted of two offi-
cers, one of whom was Cadet ,
Simon Magruder Levy, who was '
recognized for heroism during the
Battle of Maumee Rapids during
the late 1700's and, as a result,
was selected to attend West
Point. Although Jews have
always been an integral part of

never had their own, separate

By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Moshe Arens,
chairman of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Secur-
ity Committee, declared
here that Saudi Arabia's
eight-point peace plan was
unacceptable because it
was aimed at the "dis-
memberment of Israel."
Arena, who heads a six-mem-
ber Knesset delegation sent to
the U.S. to oppose the plan pro-
posed by Saudi Arabian Crown
Prince Fahd, emerged from an
hour-long meeting at the White
House to say that the Saudi plan
was not a "little step" forward as
one newspaper headline quoted
him aa saying, but a "step
sideward."
HE SAID the plan was a tac-
tical switch by the Saudis which
was in a way more dangerous to
Israel because it gave Riyadh the
appearance of being moderate.
Arens, who conceded that he
spoke by telephone to Premier
Menachem Begin in Jerusalem,
said Begin understood that he
had been misquoted after the
Knesset delegation met for 90
minutes with Secretary of State
Alexander Haig.
At that time, Arens said that
Fahd's seventh point, which calls
for all countries in the region to
live in peace, seemed to go "just a
little way" toward recognition of
Israel. But he stressed that the
Saudis still have a "long way" to
go in order to join the Middle
East peace process.
He said to do this they would
have to show a willingness to
: negotiate directly with Israel and
"learn how to pronounce the
name of Israel." Fahd's seventh
point does not mention Israel
directly but speaka of "the
countries of the region."
WHILE MAKING these re-
marks, Arens denied that he was
at odds with Begin who has re-
jected the plan totally, calling it a
means for Israel's liquidation in
stages. Arens said the plan in-
cluded demands and conditions
which are "totally unacceptable
to Israel."
While he did not list them, the
Fahd plan calls for Israel's com-
plete withdrawal to its pre-1967
borders and the establishment of
a Palestinian state with East
Jerusalem as its capital.
After the Knesset group's
meeting with White House
Counsellor Edwin Meese and Na-
tional Security Adviser Richard
Allen, Arens said he rejects the
Fahd plan completely and denied
he had seen some good in it. At
the same time, he stressed that
Israel is willing to have "direct
negotiations" with the Saudis at
any time either in Israel or Saudi
Arabia.
AREN8 SAID that in the
group's talks with Administra-
tion officials it was "clear" that
there is a difference between Is-
rael and the U.S. on the Saudi
plan. He said the Knesset group,
which includes three Likud mem-
bers and three members of the
opposition Labor Alignment, ex-
plained Israel's position to the
American officials and expressed
concern about what they per-
ceived as a change in the U.S.
attitude in recent weeks. He did
not elaborate on this.
Arens stressed that the group
also explained Israel's concern
over new armaments to the
Middle East from the Soviet Uni-
ion, Western Europe and "now
the U.S." He said Israel feared
this new increase in armaments
to Arab countries may cause Is-
rael to lose its military "edge" in
the region. He noted that when
the 62 F-15 jets the U.S. sold
Saudi Arabia in 1978 receive the
enhancement equipment ap-
proved in the recent $8.5 billion
arms sale, the Saudis will have
military "hardware" equal to Is-
rael's F-15s.
Asked about the recent Israeli
overflight of Saudi Arabia, Arens
stressed that Saudi Arabia
fought in every war against Is-
rael and has never signed an arm-
istice with the Jewish State. He
noted that the Saudis have
massed troops and military
equipment only 150 miles from
Israel's border.
Neo-Nazis Said to Have Clear Base
BONN (JTA) Federal
Justice Minister Juergen Sch-
mude said recent developmenta
have "definitely \refuted" asser-
tions that repeated extreme
rightwing violent attacks were
just independent cases. On the
contrary, he observed, it becomes
very clear that neo-Nazi groups
have managed to put on a care-
fully-planned infra structure with
branches in all parta of the coun-
try and with contacts with
similar groups abroad. _
SCHMUDE strongly defended
the decision of federal authorities
to take over the investigation in-
to the case of neo-Nazi weapon
depots, which were found in the
state of Lower Saxony.
Schmude's statement .issued by
the press service of the ruling So-
cial Democratic Party (SPD), of
which he is a member, follows a
fierce debate in Bonn over who
was politically responsible for
playing down neo-Nazi activities.

Odious Comparisons
Yellow Star Coming Back in Vogue;
Trivializes Experience of the Holocaust
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) A
court room in Nuernberg
and the front yard of that
court building have been in
recent days the scene of a
strange show: young peo-
ple, mostly between 20 and
30, carrying yellow patches
on their breasts, thus im-
plying they were persecu-
ted by the West German
state authorities as Jews
had been in the Nazi era.
The people participating in
that show are squatters and
demonstrators. who have
strongly protested in recent
months against housing
problems and other grievances.
Ten of them have gone on trail
here for their part in violent
demonstrations which took place
in Nuernberg on March 5, 1961.
They are charged with breach of
public peace, attacking policemen
and other such activities.
THOUGH THE protest move-
ment in which the young people
have been involved is highly con-
tested, there can be no discussion
that the nature of the conflict has
nothing comparable with the
atrocities committed against the
Jewish population of Europe
during the Third Reich. Neither
can there be any doubt that the
young demonstrators were never
obliged to identify themselves in
public by carrying any sign
whatsovar.
The protest action at the
beginning of the proceedings and
through recent days was typical
of what has become a common
place in Weat Germany:
trivializing the experience of the
Holocaust, drawing absurd com-
parisons to current events and
Israel Repeats
Nuclear Plea
UNITED NATIONS (JTA(
Israel renewed its call for es-
tablishing a nuclear-free zone in
the Middle East through
negotiations by the states of the
area.
Addressing the General As-
sembly, which started a debate
on Israel's attack on Iraq's
nuclear facility June 7, Yehuda
Blum, Israel's Ambassador to
the United Nations, declared:
"Israel believes that the most
effective way to prevent the
spread of nuclear weapons to the
Middle East is through the
creation of a nuclear-weapon-free
zoos in the region, modalsd on
the Tktololco Treaty, which is
based on the initiative of Latin
American states and on direct
negotiations among them''
Franz-Josef Strauss
treating the Nazi era as a normal,
relatively harmless phenomenon.
More than a year ago, in the
midst of a high-tempered nation-
wide election campaign, the
Christian Democratic Union,
which is the biggest political
party in the country, argued that
its candidate for chancellor was
handled by his opponents as the
Jews were under the Nazis.
CLEARLY, the Bavarian
leader, Franz-Josef Strauss (who
eventually lost the race to the
incumbent Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt), was not only very
sharply attacked, but partly even
libeled, as it unfortunately
happens in such campaigns. But
to compare that with notorious
Nazi anti-Jewish cartoons and
other such items produced by Jo-

Morris and Mollie
Brownstein To Be Honoi
Morris and Mollie Brownstein
of Delray Beach will be honored
on Sunday, Jan. 31, 1982 by
Temple Emeth and The State of
Israel for their leadership of The
Israel Bond Campaigns for the
past four years.
Announcement of this event,
which will be bald in Temple
Emeth, 5780 W. Atlantic
Avenue, Delray Beach, was made
by Edward Roeenthal, President
of Temple Emeth.
The Brownsteins, former resi-
dents of Minot, N.D. and
Chicago, 111. were active in frater-
nal and community activities for
many years. Mr. Brownstein
(Morris) was President of The
Minot Hebrew Congregation for
several yean as well as President
of The Dakota Council of B'nai
B'rith. He is a graduate of North
Dakota State College and was
engaged in business for over 40
yean. He served with the U.S.
went on television and appeared
on newspapers' front page pic-
tures Significantly enough, no
public outcry could be registered.
The first body which issued a
protest note was the tiny Jewish
community of Nuernberg.
It simply called on the young
demonstrators to refrain from de-
faming the real victims of the
Holocaust. Another strong
protest was issued by the chair-
man of the Jewish community of
West Berlin, Heinz Galinski. It
said, "Whatever has been done to
inform young people on the Nazi
past, it was in a large number of
cases manifestedly not enough."
Meanwhile, the accused at the
court room have removed the yel-
low patch. Some of their support-
ers outside the building have not.
The show is still going on.
THE CENTRAL Council of
the Jewish Community of West
Germany has issued a ""on*
warning on rightwing political
violence, saying that recent dis-
coveries of weapon depots and a
gun battle between police and a
neo-NaziJgang in Munich snow
thatcthel phenomenon has been
largely overlooked.
The Council noted that
organized neo-Nazi groups in
West Germany maintain close
contacts with similar groups
abroad, as recent investigations
by police and other security
organs have established. It called
on German public opinion to pay
due attention to the emergency of
violent rightwing extremism.

At several meetings between
leaders of the American Jewish
Committee and leaders of the
Hispanic community, differences
also surfaced regarding some
aspects of the U.S. immigration
policy. Except for Puerto Ricans,
who are Americans by birth and
therefore not subject to immigra-
tion restrictions, Hispanics con-
stitute the largest group of both
legal and illegal entrants to the
U.S.
Jewish and Hispanic leaders
disagree on the measures needed
to curb illegal migration, al-
though both support a generous
U.S. immigration policy and ad-
vocate amnesty for un-
documented workers already in
this country an amnesty which
was granted late last month by
President Reagan.
ANOTHER ISSUE on which
Jewish and Hispanic leaders are
in disagreement is the goal of
bilingual education. Jews reject
the proposals of some Hispanic
Kroups that their children con-
tinue to be instructed in Spanish
in all subjects, even after they
have learned English. Jewish
organizations endorse the use of
native languages primarily as a
vehicle for teaching English.
They also back ten extension of
the Voting Rights Act, which
recognizes literacy in Spanish.
There are also some U.S.
foreign policy issues toward
which Hispanics and Jews have
different attitudes. However, dif-
ferences on these issues exists
within both communities as well.
The position of all major Jew-
ish organizations with regard to
affirmative action is that mem-
bers of racial, religious and ethnic
groups have in the past suffered
from discrimination and cultural
deprivations.; therefore the
present society has an obligation
to seek to overcome the evils of
the past. However, the sole
criterion for admissions and pro-
motion opportunities in employ-
ment and education must be on
the basis of individual need, they
insist.
ALL JEWISH groups in com-
munity relations activities, na-
tionally and locally, have made it
clear they reject the proposition
that race, color or ethnicity is a
qualification or disqualification
for any post. They argue that in-
dividual merit is the touchstone
of equality of opportunity. They
regard quotas and proportional
representation in hiring, upgrad-
ing and admission of members of
minority groups as inconsistent
with the principle of non-discri-
mination.
Experts in the field of sociolo-
gy are of the opinion that the
growing emphasis on group iden-
tity instead of on individual merit
or need, when social and other
services are allocated, constitutes
a major challenge to American
Jews. They visualize that group
status and identity will play an
increasingly important role in de-
fining the nature of American so-
ciety in the 1980s, as will the ef-
forts by various groups to
achieve political objectives.

217 U.S. Firms Join Isratech '81 Show
A total of 217 American companies in-
cluding General Dynamics. General Electric and
Westinghouse are taking part in Isratech '81, a
showcase for Israeli progress in electronics,
medical engineering, solar energy and other high-
technology areas that opened in Jerusalem.
. The exhibition has as its theme "Israel Your
Key to Profitable Business Ventures.'' Emphasis
is on the advantages Israel offers to American
and other foreign investors a highly-skilled
labor force, world-renowned research institutions,
duty-free entry into the European Common
Market and a generous system of grants, loans
and tax incentives. Some 200 Israeli manufac-
turers are represented in the exhibition.
A new multinational foundation to combat and
counteract anti-Semitism in Western Europe has
been established by the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith and two B'nai B'rith European
districts to oversee the activities of ADL's Euro-
pean office in Paris.
The agreement, setting up the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith European
Foundation, was signed by Maxwell E. Green-
berg, ADL's national chairman: Joseph Domber-
ger of Munich, president of B'nai B'rith's Con-
tinental District 19; and Werner M. Lash of
London, president of B'nai B'rith Great Britain
and Ireland District 15.
Oscar van Leer of Amstelveen, The Nether-
lands, was named as the first chairman of
ADLEF, which will be headquartered in The
Netherlands.
Gert White, of Springfield. N.J., was reelected
chairman of the Women's American ORT
National Executive Committee at the
organization's 26th national biennial convention
held recently in New York. Mrs. White will serve
as the 145,000-member organization's second
highest officer until October, 1983.
Mrs. White is a member of the Executive
Committee of the American ORT Federation and
the World ORT Union, and serves on the Board of
Trustees of the Bramson ORT Technical Institute
in New York.
The feeling that, in recent months, attempts
have been made to "still the voices of the Ameri-
can Jewish community," as well as to arouse anti-
Semitism, were expressed at the annual Covenant
of Peace Awards Dinner of the Synagogue
Council of America held in New York.
Sol G. Chaikin, president of the International
Ladies Garment Workers Union, and one of four
persons receiving the Covenant of Peace Award of
the S('A. said that there was "deep resentment"
ovtr the attempts to quiet those who wished to
express themselves on the AW ACS issue, an
issue which he termed as a "matter of vital im-
portance to the peoples of the U.S. and the Middle
And Rabbi Walter S. Wurzburger, president of
the Synagogue Council, called upon "religious
leaders of all denominations" to warn their ll
followers against the "menace of resurgent anti [I
Semitism. which, unfortunately, can be detected
even in the United States."
Sen. Bob Packwood (R., Ore.) was honored by
the National Council of Jewish Women at its 1981
Joint Program Institute in Washington this
week. NCJW National President Shirley I. Levit-
on presented the National Council of Jewish
Women's Social Action Award to Sen. Packwood
at the closing luncheon of the four-day advocacy
training institute on Thursday.
The Action Award was created to honor men
and women "whose dedication and commitment

political channels and legislative action." Former
Award recipients include Hubert H. Humphrey,
Bayard Rustin, Martha Griffiths, and Walter
Mondale.
A course in Cardio- Pulmonary Resuscitation
(CPR) life saving technique is being offered by
Magen David Adorn to the Israeli public, with
special emphasis on families of heart attack
patients, to enable them to cope with sudden
seizures. Statistics show that 70 percent of heart
attack fatalities occur in the first six minutes,
often before the ambulance arrives, and a family
member starting CPR immediately can make the
vital difference between life and death.
The sessions, which are being given in a
number of MDA Emergency Medical Clinics
throughout Israel, include lectures by a physician
as well as films, slides and demonstrations of
closed-chest massage and other methods of resus-
citation. Graduates of the CPR course are able to
assist all victims of cardiac arrest, whether from
heart attack, drowning, accident trauma or other
cause.
At a private briefing of the World Jewish
Congress, Rumania's Chief Rabbi Dr. David
Moses Rosen reported that the anti-Semitic
incidents occurring inRumania last year had come
to an end.
Dr. Rosen, speaking at a meeting in New York
with the American Section of the WJC, referred
to the anti-Semitic phenomena of a year ago,
which included the circulation of an anti-Semitic
tract in Bucharest that, among other things,
accused Rabbi Rosen of being an agent of a uni-
versal Jewish conspiracy.
Those developments were "a terrible shock for
us, he stated. In response to these manifesta-
tions, Rabbi Arthur Schneier. chairman of the
WJC American Section, went to Rumania to
with President Nicolae Ceausescu..

Palestinian Extremist
Doesn't Counter PI
Merely Takes New
VIENNA (JTA) The
Palestinian extremist group of
Abu Nidal. Al Asifa, known for
its terrorist activities in Austria
and other European countries,
does not represent a counter-
position to the PLO's basic
' course but is rather one shade of
the armed fight against Israel, an
Israeli scientist told the Austrian
newsmagazine Profit.
"Abu Nidal is well-known only
in Austria," Daniel Dishon,
historian and orientalist at the
Shiloah Center for Middle
Eastern and African Studies of
the University of Tel Aviv, said,
'within the PLO, he is only a
ninor figure. The PLO as a
ederation is weak. Strong are the
separate, often rivaling factions."
ASKED WHETHER Abu
Nida's group was a member of
the PLO, Dishon said that formal
membership in the organization
was not clearly defined. "In the
widest sense, every faction
belongs to the PLO that accepts
the Palestinian charter. If you
look at it like that, the group of
Abu Nidal belongs to the PLO,"
Dishon said.
"If you restrict membership

Negev Air Force Bases
Open in Advance of Complet
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
two Israel Air Force bases in the
Negev being built by the U.S. to
replace two being abandoned in
Sinai were formally declared
operational here, even though far
from completion.
The first Israeli squadron flew
into Uvdat airfield north of Eilat
late yesterday. The Ramon air-
field near Mitzpe Ramon will be
taken over shortly. The new air-
fields, plus a third being built by
Israeli contractors at Tel Mai-
ns t a near Beersheba, are to
replace the two major air bases of
Eitam and Etzion in Sinai which
are to be handed over to the
Egyptians for civilian use only,
by next April, the date of Israel's
final withdrawal from Sinai under
the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.

Haddad Changes Mil
Withdraws Resigi
And TIeases'Israeli*
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli military and J
authorities were reportedly pleased when Ma]- ^J
dad rescinded his resignation as commander of W
tian militia in south Lebanon only 48 hours after
nounced it over the "Voice of Hope" Christian
station.
Haddad gave no reason for his surprise de
quit or for his equally sudden decision not to. He I
that both moves were made "entirely for local soutni
anese reasons." His militia, supported by Isr**J
largely armed by it, is regarded here as a buffer pjf
ing Palestinian terrorists from infiltrating across
northern border.
According to Haddad, President Elias Sarkiscjl
anon had expressed regret at his initial ann0V1*L|
that he would leave his post. Haddad said he pi^
reorganize the civilian and military command utiu
he controls which, he said, will be known as ''Fl*V*l

Israeli hospitals.
