The Amranim brothers are

been singing together since child-
hood, and are now specializing in
concerts of authentic folk music
of Yemenites, Bukharians, Per-
sian Jews and other ethnic
groups now living in Israel.
Since 1966 the Amranim have
successfully completed tours
throughout Europe, Canada and
the USA, Mexico and South
America. They were featured per-
formers in the Israel Govern-
ment's annual Shalom Revue and
have often been praised as good

As popular folk artists, the
Amranim have performed at

lathan Perlmutter de-
nt "any injection of anti-
into an American pub-
Ite, on any issue, is ab-
horrent and should be promptly
and resolutely condemned."
Perlmutter also expressed
"deep concern'' that many letters
singled out Israel for alleged
interference in U.S. foreign policy
formulation at a time when Saudi
Prince Bandar was in Wash-
ington energetically lobbying for
the AW ACS sale.
Furthermore, the ADL official
said, those critical of Israel or
Jews "ignored the pre-AW ACS
campaign waged by what Presi-
dent Eisenhower once called the
military-industrial complex' and
the efforts to promote the sale by
large American corporations with
links to financial interests in
Saudi Arabia."
THE ADL survey revealed
that the 72 Senators had received
approximately 166,000 pieces of
mail, of which some 15,000 spoke
of Israeli "interference," and
3,300 contained anti-Semitic
references. "The volume, tone
and language of the 3,300 letters
suggested that they originated
mostly with fringe elements
rather than with mainstream
Americans," the survey noted.
Since the dates of the letters

A t CJF Assembly
Soviet Jewry Listed as Most Important U.S. Priority
rescue of Soviet Jewry is the pre-
eminent task of this generation of
American Jews," Theodore
Mann, chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, told
the more thatn 2,500 representa-
tives from the United States and
Canada attending the 50th Gen-
eral Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations.
In the near future, Mann said
he expects relations between the
U.S. and the Soviet Union to im-
prove, particularly with respect
to trade, and here is the chance
for American Jews to seek
assurance that the Reagan Ad-
ministration will link the issue of
Soviet Jewish emigration to any
WHETHER OR not American
Jews are able to take advantage
of this opportunity depends on
two factors, Mann observed. "We
have got to be certain that the
Administration is attuned to our
issue and will give it prominence
in its negotiations with the
Sovtot"Union," he said, and "the
America"* Jewish 'community
must be seen by the Soviet Union
as an important and influential
part of the American electorate."
Continuing, Mann said that
"Our political power depends
upon a perception in Washington
that we are united on a certain
issue" and that this is an issue
"of overriding concern to the
community." Representatives
and Senators, as well as the Pres-
ident, must "believe that millions
of Americans really care about
the safety of these two or three
million Jews left in the Soviet
Union," Mann said.
He noted that emigration
dropped last month to a decade
low and that "there have been
more arrests in the last five
months than in the last five
Metropolitan New Jersey, out-
lined four recommendations for
action by American Jews: Jews
and non-Jews must be mobilized
for one million signatures on
petitions to be presented to
Soviet President Leonid Brezh-
nev concerning the plight of
Soviet Jews; "emergency confer-
ences" need to be held to
publicize the desperate situation
of Jews in the USSR and it is im-
perative that there be a record at-
tendance at the Women's Plea for
Soviet Jewry, planned for next
month in communities around
the country; it is important that
there be visits to Soviet Jews by
well-informed American Jewish
leaders, along with regular letters
and telephone calls to boost the
morale of refuseniks; and there
must be political action.

Worsening Plight of Falashas Must be Serious Fowl
worsening plight of 25,000
Ethiopian Jews Falashas
was the focus of serious concern
at the 50th anniversary General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations (CJF). The
five-day gathering which drew
more than 2,500 delegates from
200 Jewish Federations in the
U.S. and Canada, ended here last
A resolution welcomed "the
expanded programs of the gov-
ernment of Israel and Jewish
Agency" to effect the immigra-
tion of Ethiopian Jews to Israel
and their integration and ab-
sorption into Israeli society. "But
the numbers reaching Israel only
emphasize how difficult and
desperate the situation is," the
resolution stated.
Ethiopian Jews are in "danger
of physical and spiritual disin-
tegration" and there is an
"urgent need for all agencies con-
cerned to make greater efforts to
ameliorate their plight," the CJF
resolution said.
IT NOTED that over 1,000
Falashas have reached Israel
since 1979 and "have adjusted to
that country in a remarkably
constructive and speedy" man-.
ner." However, "We continue to
call for a level of action that is
commensurate with the danger
and the urgency of need. The sit-
uation is desperate and calls for
rescue efforts of the highest pri-
ority," the resolution said.
At an earlier session, Daniel
Shapiro, chairman of the Nation-
al Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Councils (NACRAC)
Committee on Ethiopian Jews,
told participants at a forum on
"Ethiopian Jews A Commu-
nity in Peril" that Israel was
doing all it could to assist. "It is
a difficult and sensitive issue"
but "I am convinced that Prime
Minister (Menachem) Begin is
making a strong effort to save
them," Shapiro said.
A representative of Begins
government told the forum that
the Prime Minister himself
oversees the Falasha operation.
He read a telegram from Begin
which urged "discretion" on the
issue which could "literally en-
danger the lives of people." Be-
gin's message gave assurances
that in Israel "There is no indif-
ference. We lave no stone un-
turned in our absolute devotion
to his life saving cause and the
efforts is not barren."
A guest at the forum was an
Ethiopian Jew living in Israel.
Identified only as Abraham, ap-
parently to protect his family in
Ethiopia, he described the condi-
tions under which Falashas live.
He also gave an account of their
absorption process in Israel
where many must be taught the
basic rudiments of modern day
life in addition to learning
Hebrew and training for job

Weise told how, after many
difficulties, particularly with the
dictatorial governor of the more
accessible Gandar province who
refused to allow him to meet with
Black Jews there, he finally
reached a remote Falasha village.
He brought them the first news
of the outside world that they
had since 1974, Weise said.
"They were joyous. They took
out their Bible ... we told them
the Jewish world had not forgot-
ten them," he said.
"We spoke with indivkhu

State Dep't. Won't

DAS A Takes Credit
Rule Out Palestine State For Assist in Timerman Release
(JTA) The State
Department said that while
the United States does not
advocate the creation of a
Palestinian state, it does
not rule out that such a
state could come into ex-
istence through negotia-
"I do.n.'t think, you -have.-found
any United States Administra-
tion in recent years that ad-
vocated a Palestinian state," De-
partment spokesman Dean
Fischer said in response to ques-
tions from reporters. "But that
does not necessarily mean that it
should be ruled out of nego-
tiations. I do not think that any
American Administration could
put itself in that position."
retary of State Alexander Haig
meant to imply, when he told a
Congressional committee that
Saudi Arabia's proposal for a
Palestinian state with East Jeru-
salem as its capital was "espe-
cially unacceptable" to the Unit-
ed State that it ruled out nego-
Fischer said Haig had pointed
out that most of the eight-point
Saudi plan was unacceptable be-
cause it laid down conditions that
should be negotiated. He said
Haig was saying that a Pales-
tinian state was "unacceptable
unless and until it is negotiated."
Fischer added the peace process
is the "appropriate" means for
deciding this and other issues.
Fischer also said the United
States had made it "clear" to Is-
rael that it does "not condone"
over-flights of Saudi Arabia, such
as the one by Israel in which the
Israeli planes left after being con-
fronted by Saudi aircraft.
"WE FEEL that no action
should be taken in that region
that could raise tension," he said.
But when he was asked about Is-
raeli surveillance flights over
Lebanon, he stressed his state-
ment was strictly confined to
Saudi Arabia. Fischer added that
the United States remains
"hopeful" that Palestinian Arabs
on the West Bank and Gaza Strip
will join the Israeli-Egyptian
peace process.
Fahd Trip to U.S. Delayed
Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi
Arabia, who had been expected to
visit Washington next month,
may not come here until next
year. This became apparent when
State Department deputy
spokesman Alan Romberg said
the U.S. and the Saudis were
"working on a mutually conveni-
ent date" for Fahd's visit. It
could take place "after the first of
the vear," he said.
boon after the Senate approved
the sale of five AW ACS surveil-
lance aircraft and enhancement
equipment for F-15 jets to Saudi
Arabia, a Saudi newspaper an-
nounced that Fahd would visit
Washington Dec. 1. But Rom-
berg stressed today that the re-
port was "erroneous" since a
mutually agreeable date has not
been set.
A State Department source
said later that neither the U.S.
nor the Saudis were holding up
the visit but that they only have
not been able to agree on a date
that was convenient both to the
Reagan Administration and
Saudi Arabia.
Nehemiah Resnizky, immediate
past president of the DAI A, the
central agency for Argentine
Jewry, has asserted here that the
DAIA, in cooperation with the
then Israeli Ambassador Ram
Nirgad intervened with the
Argentine government after the
arrest of publisher Jacobo
Timerman arid that the inter-
vention "was the initial impulse
of the movement that finally
brought about Timerman's re-
Resnizky made the statement
to a meeting of the Plenary
Council of the World Jewish,
Congress American section.
Timerman was arrested in 1977
and kept in prison, where he re-
ported he was regularly tortured,
and was kept under house arrest
for 18 months, before being
stripped of his citizenship and
put on a plane to Israel, where he
now resides.
RESNIZKY asserted that
after his release, Timerman, "for
reasons of his own, launched a
defamation campaign against the
Jewish leadership in Argentina."
in articles and in his book,
"PrisonerWithout A Name, Cell
Without a Number." Timerman
has since made similar charges in
Resnizky said Timerman's
charge that the DAIA failed to
denounce anti-Semitic activities
reported on in La Opnion,
Timerman's newspaper, waa
simply untrue and that
Timer-man's charge that the
DAIA waa "not ready to discuss
publicly the meaning of Zionism"
was also false
Resnizky said, contrary to
Timerman'a charges, that the
DAIA "had ignored the
publisher's arrest, "we mobilized
ourselves," in cooperation with
Nirgad, "from the very moment
of Timerman's arrest," in a
"relentless effort to achieve
Timerman's release and to pre-
serve his personal security."
CRITICS OF Timerman's
charges of widespread anti-
Semitism in the Argentine
government have raised the
matter of Timerman's association
with David Graiver, a dubious,
Argentine Jewish financier who
had helped finance La Opinion.
Graiver died in a mysterious
plane crash.
Resnizky asserted that DAIA
officials "were aware of the fact
that the anti-Semitic groups that
tried, in 1977, to exploit the
Graiver case would also try to
make Timerman the target of
their anti-Jewish hatred. We be-
lieved that, in addition,
Timerman was entitled to our
help and protection for having
defended Jewish interests and
opposed anti-Semitism" in La
In charging Timerman with
defaming the Argentine Jewish
community and its leadership,
Resnizky declared that "the third
day after Timerman's detention,
I personally was received by the
then chief of the army and
today's President, General Viola,
to whom I conveyed officially the
preoccupation of Argentine
Jewry regarding the freedom and
personal security of Timerman."
In further rebuttal of
Timerman's charges, Resnizky
declared that "we have made
pubUc our identification with the
State of Israel and the Zionist
movement, stating unequivocally
that for Jews there is no differ-
ence between anti-Zioniam and
HE SAID, "we conveyed to

Weinberger spoke after the
La national director, Nathan

high responsibility" to
categorically repudiate the in-
ection of anti-Semitism and its
crony, dual loyalty" into the
Middle East debate. Perhnutter
suggested this should be done
just as former President Dwight
Eisenhower publicly denounced
.Perhnutter said in his opening
remarks that Eisenhower's de-
nunciation has dealt McCarthy-
ism "a severe bbw from which it
never recovered."
"The President scored for
Americanism, scored against
bigotry," Perhnutter said. "I
commend his example for emu-
lation today."
"LET ME say quickly but
firmly: a vote against AW ACS

vote for AW ACS end enhance-
ments had no more resonance as
being anti- Israel or an ti-Jewish
than a vote against the package,"
the ADL leader declared.
He continued, "What
disturbed us, however, was ths
injection into the debate of non-
relevant, even mean-spirited in-
nuendo. When s former President
of the United States," a reference
to former President Richard
Nixon, attributes opposition to
the Prime Minister (of Israel) end
American Jews, "this tack,
plainly said, pulls the cork, lets
loose the genie of anti-Semitism,
its crony, dual loyalty "
Declaring that a speech to a
Jewish group on Israd-U.S. re-
lations demanded "special
seriousness at this time." Wein-
berger emphasized that the two
nations' long-term friendship was
based on shared values.' He
said that when these values are
called into question, it does not
mean a change in U.S. policy. He
noted that there was room for
disagreements, "but it is not the
sign of any policy reversal."
said that just as "explicit recog-
nition" of Israel was part of the
Administration's policy so, too,
was the issue of Israel's "non-
negotiable security." The Ad-
ministration, Weinberger said,
would not embark on any actions
in the Mideast that risk ths
security of Israel or its capacity
for self-defense.
But he added that U.S. at-
tempts "to break out of the stale-
mate" in the Mideast may
require the U.S. and its aBies to
take risks. He did not say what
risks U.S. allies in the region
would have to take.
Weinberger said it is important
for the Israelis to understand this
position as to avoid any "drastic
action" by the Jewish State. He
said this also holds true to other
U.S. allies in the Mideast. Wein-
berger concluded by citing Rea-
gan as an "underestimated"
man, who holds s deep "emotion-
a) commitment" and desire for

NEW YORK- A signifi-

broken away from the main
bodies and, joined by
known Nazis, are planning
more drastic action than
the standard Klan cross

That is one of the findings of s
six-month long investigation by

into current Klan activities. Also
reported were:
Dissatisfaction with
"moderate" Klan leadership,

Reports from informed
sources, the Committee asserts,
indicate that a similar situation is
developing in Alabama, where
Klansmen contemplst* forming

and German officials have ex-
pressed deep disappointment
over the failure so far of the 10
member states of the European
Economic Community (EEC) to
agree on the text of s declaration
approving the participation by
member states in the Multina-
tional Force and Observers
(MFO) which is to patrol Sinai
after Israel completes its with-
drawal next April. The U.S. will

The declaration requires
unanimity. But Greece, the new-
est member of the EEC, remains
opposed to the formula proposed
by the other nine EEC partners
which would refer to the Camp
David agreements in one part
and to other documents, such as
the EEC's 1980 Venice Declara-
tion on the Mideast, in another.
THE NEW Greek government
heeded by Socialist Premier
Andreas Papandreou supports
the Venice Declaration but is op-
posed to the Camp David ac-
cords. The Venice Declaration
calls for the association of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion in the peace process.
Israel has said it would dis-
qualify any country from partici-
pation in the MFO that does ao
on the basis of any formula other
than Camp David. Britain,
France, Italy and Holland have
indicated a willingness to provide
units for the Sinai force but offi-
cial commitments depend on
EEC approval.
British and German officials,
meeting here in the course of the
regular Anglo-German consulta-
tions, said a new round of consul-
tations with Israel and the U.S.
would be necessary if Greece does
not drop its opposition. They said
another attempt would be made
to convince the Greeks to accept
a formula containing references
to Camp David. "If this does not
produce the desired results, new
ways will be explored," a British
diplomat said.

Two Good Resolutions'
The General Assembly of the Conference of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds just ended in St.
Louis has come up with two pretty good resolutions.
One of them places Soviet Jewry at the top of the list
of American Jewish priorities.
Another one points to the urgent plight of Falasha
Jewry in Africa.
The two resolutions both aim at saving Jews. The
difference is that Soviet Jews are favored. They are
Asnkenazic. They are Western. They are White.
They represent a cultural and intellectual Jewish af-
finity They are educationally and civilizationally ad-
vanced. It is they, among other Europeans, whom
the founding Zionist fathers had in mind when they
envisioned the establishment of a new Jewish state
to become Israel.
The F alas has are not favored. They are African.
They are Black. They represent a cultural and intel-
lectual Jewish curiosity. They are educationally and
civilizationally of an entirely different world. No
founding Zionist father could have had them in mind
when they envisioned the establishment of a new
Jewish state to become Israel.
Still, are they not, by their own allegiance and suf-
fering at the hands of oppressors today, Jews? We
are told that the answer is yes, but the question is
how many of us feel this in our hearts. Indeed, the
F alas has, themselves, accuse Israel of not feeling
this way and of remaining deaf to their pleas for de-
The import of the two resolutions at the CJF As-
sembly is to reawaken our sensibilities to this pro-
found problem. Soviet Jews spurn their visas to
Israel, and we are implored to take them to our
hearts. Falasha Jews beg us to take them out of the
land of their bondage and bring them to Israel, and
we ignore them.
Perhaps the CJF resolutions will spur us to correct
our inadequate handling of this African Jewish
Book to be Studied
A new book, The New Fascists, is a product of the
work of Prof. Paul Wilkinson of Aberdeen University
m England. Wilkinson traces the links between the
Palestine Liberation Organization and neo-Nazi
groups going back as far as 1969.
PLO groups including instructors and propa-
It was in that year that Nazi leaders, at a secret
meeting in Madrid, pledged to support "Fatah and
There are countless paradoxes in the marriage. By
definition, the neo-Nazis are ultra-right wing. By
definition, the PLO, argues Prof. Wilkinson, "boast
of their intimacy with the Communist world as a
Still, that does not stop the Nazis. It never did.
After all, Hitler's Axis established alliances with the
Japanese and with the Italians, both of whom Hitler
considered as racial inferiors. Furthermore there is
the pact the Nazis signed with the Russians one year
before all hell broke loose on the Easter Front.
What Wilkinson's new book does is to shed new
light on the growing links uniting terrorist acts
across the globe for example, the relationship be-
tween Al Fatah and the Swiss Nazi Party; the trial in
Yugoslavia in 1975 involving three West German
Nazis who were intercepted on their way to a PLO
training camp.
All of which is by way of urging responsible
Western leadership to quit proposing the Pales-
tinians as suitable partners for Israel in a new Mid-
dle East peace accord. Talk about the paradox in
Nazi marriages of convenience. It should not be for-
gotten that the Arabs, themselves, were pretty good
at ideological marriages of convenience in World War
II. They supported the Nazis full tilt.

Hollings Calls Metzenbaum "Senator

Howard Metzenbaum (D., Ohio) was
called the "Senator from B'nai B'rith"
during a debate on the Senate floor. The
remark was made by Sen. Ernest
Hollings (D., S.C.) during a heated
debate over legislation supporting
voluntary prayer in public schools. The
Senate adopted the measure which would
prevent the Justice Department from
blocking programs of voluntary prayer
or meditation in public schools.
While Hollings was speaking in
support of the measure, Metzenbaum
and several other Senators interrupted to
challenge him. "The questioning will
now be done by the Senator from B'nai
B'rith," Hollings said.
METZENBAUM immediately re-
plied, "I resent, the remark of the Sen-
ator from South Carolina, and he will ad-
dress me as the Senator from Ohio." The
custom of the Senate is for Senators to
address each other by naming the state
which they represent.

that Premier Menachem Begin s
recent attacks on kibbutzim and
other officials' attacks on the

Korn, a leader in the World

the only "counterweight against

on the ideals of kibbutzim and on
the principles of the early

ADDRESSING a meeting here

to have a larger periphery" of
Jews through the world who will
show solidarity with the kib-
butzim and Histadrut in Israel

often attacks pioneering groups
in the Jewish state."

He stressed that the eight-

aimed at Israel's destruction. He
said most of the points represent
demands that the Saudis sought
to impose on Israel. While Arens
did not outline what these de-

for Israel's complete withdrawal
to the pre-1967 borders and the
establishment of a Palestinian
state with East Jerusalem as its
capital. i
ARENS SAID that the point
in the plan which affirms "the
right of all countries of the region
to live in peace" could be inter-
preted, as the United States has,
as demonstrating a willingness
by Saudi Arabia to accept Is-

Family and Men's Campaign,
announces the appointment of
Sidney Pearce as chairman of the
Palm Greens Condo 1 Drive and
Morris W. Morris and Ben
Karpen as co-chairmen of the

In making the appointments,
Kretsky said, "Last year, under
the leadership of these three
capable people, we had a most
successful Palm Greens Cam-
paign. This year we expect an
even greater effort. Knowing our
leadership in Palm Greens, I feel
very confident."
Jews Stand United in Action
HOfel Director
University of Miami
A beautiful, petite, young girl
came to HiOel two weeks ago
after a long 24-hour Shabbat vigil
for Soviet Jewry. All of us were
exhausted having been up since
early Friday through Saturday
Something unusual
surrounded her a special glow,
perhaps a certain radiance. I
discovered quickly I was right.
Only two days earlier, she arrived
in Miami from Argentina, where
she had been imprisoned for four
years for no reason, other than
being a Jew.
The drama of the long day had
been brought into painful focus
by this introduction. My heart
broke. I could only extend my
hand, a kiss on the cheek, a warm
mazel tov and welcome!
THE YOUNG man who intro-
duced me to hia new friend had
had the same experience only leas
than a year ago, when he too was
released from Argentina jails.

came clearly focused: How was I'

Not long ago, a girl dropped by
to ask me if she was "a bad Jew"
for doubting or questioning her
belief in God. "Absolutely not," I
answered, encouraging her to
question, look for answers, and
then to build a stronger base for
her faith. I also stressed that
Judaism differs from Christianity
in one (among other) respect-that
to be a Christian (for fun-
damentalists especially) all one
has to do is to believe in Jesus as
the Messiah. To be Jewish, one
has to do, to act. Belief for us, is
important, but doing is essential,
JEWS CAN argue beliefs,
disagree, and still stand on firm
ground as Jews. Unity in belief is
far )eas important for Jews than
oneness in action.
I have twin brothers. When
they were in nursery school, I re-
member clearly that if they were
separated in different rooms, and
one fell down or was hurt in one
room, the other one hurt also, and
either felt the pain as well, or
knew immediately that some-
thing was wrong with his
We Jews are like this, or
should be. When one of us is
hurting in one part of the world,
we who are safe, must feel their
pain and rise to their cause. Our
action or inaction can mean, as I
was made so painfully aware, life
or death for our fellow Jews.

director of the MFO, Ray Hunt of
the U.S., and Norwegian Gen.
Frederick BuU-Hansen who will
be its military commander. They
described to him their prepare
tions for deploying the force on
March 20 in accordance with the
provisions of the Egyptian-Is-
raeli peace treaty.
THE U.8. is committed to pro-
vide more than half of the 2,500
member MFO. The composition
of the remainder is not certain,
pending final decisions by
Britain, France, Italy, Holland,
Australia and Canada to contri-
bute personnel. Hunt said those
countries could make a very use-
ful contribution to the MFO if
they decide eventually to join it,
particularly with sophisticated
communications and air and sea
But Hunt told reporters after
meeting with Shamir that the
MFO would be able to perform its
duties even without the partici-
pation of the other Western
powers. He said there would be
three battallions an American
one based at Sharm el-Sheikh and
one each from Fiji and Colombia.
Uruguay has also undertaken to
contribute troops.
Meanwhile, Israeli and
Egyptian military officers, carto-
graphers and legal experts are
busy drawing the future interna-
tional border line between Israel
and Egypt after the evacuation of
Sinai is completed. It will corres-
pond to the old international
border dating from the Ottoman
Turkish rule. The experts are re-
ferring to maps and documents
from that era.
Israeli sources said the border
would be marked by more than
100 boundary stones set up at
equal distances from Eilat in the
south to Rafah in the north.

and "unconscionable." He told the dinner guests
that the United States had developed weapons
superior to those of the Soviet Union, but that

Dr. Robert H. Belmaker, director of research of

Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry.
He is the first Israeli to be so honored.
Dr. Belmaker is a leader in research on the use
of lithium to help persons suffering from manic-
depression, which has been a subject of research
at the Jerusalem Mental Health Center for over
ten years. In the past two years, JMHC has made
significant progress in another area, investigating
chemical compounds known as peptides, as an aid
to children afflicted with MBD, minimal brain
dysfunction. Dr. Belmaker chaired symposia on
both these topics at the recent World Congress of
Biological Psychiatry in Stockholm.
The possibility of a religious dialogue between
Jews and Muslims is "profoundly complicated"
because of the unique linkage between religious
faith and political power in Islam, according to
Henry Siegman, executive director of the
American Jewish Congress.
In making the assessment, the AJCongress
official acknowledged that his appraisal would
not please those who see the religious area as a
"promising" one for discourse and interaction be-
tween Jews and Muslims, similar to that under-
way between Jews and Christians.
But while voicing his "regret at issuing such a
gloomy" forecast, he noted that it was, neverthe-
less, a "realistic" one, based on "fundamental
truths about Islamic theology."

HIAS Denies Charge
No Policy to Outflank Jewish Agency
HI AS flatly denies a charge bv
Jewish Agency Executive Chair-
man Leon Dulzin that it was ob-
structing the Agency's policy of
not rendering assistance to
Soviet Jewish emigres who
choose to settle in countries other
than Israel after reaching Vienna.
Dulzin made the accusation in
a report to the Jewish Agency
Executive in Jerusalem last week
after a brief visit to the transit
facilities for Soviet Jews in
Vienna. He claimed that HI AS
was "violating the agreement" it
had with the Agency not to
extend its services to Soviet Jews
seeking to immigrate to the
United States unless they have
very close relatives in the U.S.
ACCORDING to a Jewish
Agency spokesman, Dulzin
accused HIAS of "fighting not to
save Jews but to preserve its own
existence." He charged that the
century-old international im-
migrant aid agency was "strug
gling wildly with the Rav Tov or-
ganization over the pitifully few
Jeiifm^ttyrently-leBVUig the Soviet
Dulzin characterized Rav Tov
aa "agents of Satmar" and
"enemies of the State of Israel
and collaborators with its
enemies." The Satmar is an anti-
Zionist Hasidk sect which
refuses to recognize the
legitimacy of Israel on religious
In a statement to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Edwin
Shapiro, president of HIAS, de-
clared: "The HIAS position with
reference to the new Jewish
Agency plan for Soviet Jewish
migrants was established by our
executive board on August 24
and confirmed by the HIAS
board on September 20.
"IT IS unfortunate that the
Jewish Agency action, presented
without notice on August 17, has
proven a failure. Though HIAS
found it repugnant to its 101
year-old tradition to deny assis-
tance to any Jewish migrant in
need, we have, through coopera-
tive counseling with the Jewish
Agency in Vienna, worked to
increase the flow to Israel.
"We, with a board of 202
American, Canadian and Mexic-
an Jewish leaders, regret the ac-
cusations of the executive officer
of the Jewish Agency. We cate-
gorically deny that we have
contributed to the plan's failure
or cooperated in any way with the
anti-Israel Rav Tov organization.
However, any time we can
prevent the success of an organi-
zation with such an anti-Israel
policy, we will do so. We feel that
through cooperation, the Jewish
Agency and the organized
American Jewish community can
have strength.
"Through unfounded and often
malicious statements, we can
only reach an area of divisiveness
instead of the goals for the rescue
of our brethren in the USSR and
the strengthening of the State of
DULZIN SAID in his report
that the Soviet authorities were
exploiting the situation in Vienna
to justify their closure of the
gates of emigration. He noted
that in recent days only "individ-
ual Jews were reaching Vienna
from the USSR.
The Jewish Agency chairman
insisted that "We will not give
up" the struggle for immigration
to Israel and against HIAS. He
said a meeting of the Council of
Jewish Federations would con-
vene in the U.S. to discuss
"urgently" the HIAS issue.
Frank Strauss, director of
communications of the CJF in
New York, told the JTA today
that a meeting was held yester-
day on the situation in Vienna
but no conclusions were reached.
He said it was attended by Mor-
ton Mandel, president of the
CJF; Irving Bernstein, executive
vice chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal; Edwin Shapiro,
president of HIAS.

He was Roger N. Baldwin,
tracing his maternal and pater-
nal ancestry back to passengers
on the Mayflower, seeking free-
dom in a new land. When he died
recently at 97, he left a heritage
of shining devotion to the
onerous and often unpopular task,
of fighting to maintain the
strength and sanctity of the Bill
of Rights. If we forget his exam-

times, frightened people have

rights of extremists, including
Ku Klux Klansmen and members
of the American Nazi Party, to

hated swastika in Skokie, Illi-
Baldwin's creed was epito-
mized by his declaration that
"our nation's security lies in our
liberties; and if we sacrifice our
liberties, then what do we have to
fight for?" When he founded the
American Civil Liberties Bureau
(now Union) in 1917, he was a
prime champion of pacifism who
served nine months in jail for re-
fusing to register for the draft.
How closely be hewed to the
line of protecting the rights of all

simultaneously to defend Klans-
men daring; to assembly in
Catholic Boston while working to
convince doubters that Catholics
had the right to teach in the
public schools of Akron, Ohio.

ALLAGANY WAS referring

rael's complete evacuation of oc-
cupied Arab territory end the
establishment of a Palestinian
state with its capital in East
Jerusalem. According to a radio
report from Riyadh, a spokesman
for Fahd said the Crown Prince
disassociated himself from
Allagany's reference to recog-
nizing Israel.
Turning to the autonomy talks
which concluded in Cairo after
two days, Begin said the
Egyptians had once again called
for the inclusion of East Jeru-
salem Arabs among the eligible
voters for administrative council
under the autonomy plan for the
West Bank.
In addition, Begin said, Egypt
also demanded judicial and legis-
lative powers for that council. He
said he would never accept either
proposal, but affirmed that the
talks would continue until agree-
ment is reached.
THE PREMIER said there
was no hurry to conclude the
autonomy talks before April, the
time set for Israel's final with-
drawal from Sinai. He stated that
there is no linkage between
autonomy and withdrawal and
affirmed that withdrawal would
be completed as scheduled.
Begin also said he would not
initiate a tripartite summit with
President Hoani Mubarak of
Egypt and President Reagan, al-
though he would be prepared to
attend if be were asked to. He
laid there was no need to attend a

only be required to make con-
Turning to the two outspoken
doves in the Knesset commtttew,
Yoesi Sarid of the Labor Align-

these two to do the job." Re-
sponding, Sarid said: "Mr.
Premier, considering the con-
cessions you made at Camp

Israel Should Not Demandvan der Stoel
Minister Max van der Stoel said
that "Israel should not demand"
that the European Economic
Community (EEC) countries
abandon their Venice declaration
of June, 1960 as a condition for
participation in the Multinational
Force and Observers (MFO) in
Sinai. At the same time, he said
"we cannot link our possible
participation in the Sinai force
with the condition that Israel
ahould wholeheartedly approve
the Venice declaration."
The Venice document calls for
the association of the Palestine
Liberation Organization in the
Mideast peace process. Israel has
rejected it as a basis for
negotiations and has also said it
would disqualify any nation that
refers to a formula other than the
Camp David accords as the ra-

Van der Stoel spoke to report-
ers here in connection with the

Slate Senate Minority Leader
Manfred Ohrenstein has hailed

City and Community State Bank

Ohrenstein, who for the past
eight months has spearheaded s
drive to deny the representatives
of the Arab countries their bid,
called the vote a victory for New
York State.
Blum, Israel's Ambassador to

that the eight-point plan pro-

Saudi Arabia was neither a
"peace" plan nor the Saudis' own
"There is every indication that

not by, certainly with the
cooperation of the PLO," he told
some 400 members of the Nation-
al Council of Jewish Women
(NCJW) attending the organiza-

TEL AVIV Persistent
rumors that Labor might join Li-

Svernment were decisively put
am by Labor Party Chairman
Shimon Peres. He told a press
conference here that before Labor
could even consider such a move,
the basic guidelines of the
present government would have
to be changed and this Premier
Menachem Begin absolutely
refuses to do.
According to Peres, Begins
only interest in a national
coalition would be to humiliate
the Labor Alignment by making
it a junior partner. It is not his
intention to call on Labor to help
overcome the country's intracta-
ble problems which, Peres said,
developed or were worsened by
the faulty measures taken by Be-
gin and his Likud colleagues.
The only national coalition in
Israel's history was formed after
the Six-Day War when the ruling
Labor Party joined forces with
the opposition, including Begin's

dedicated commitment to Jewish
education as the instrument to
create a Jewish renaissance in

NEW YORK An Israeli ed-
ucator who attended a five-day
Congress on Jewish Education in
Latin America held in Rio de
Janeiro last week said here that
he found Latin American Jewry
at the threshold of a Jewish re-
naissance based on Jewish edu-
cation and the centrality of Israel
to Jewish life.
Dr. Eli Tavin, head of the
World Zionist Organization's
Department of Education in Je-
rusalem, said the Congress
demonstrated "the determined
efforts of Latin American Jewry
to achieve a robust and creative
Jewish life based upon Jewish
knowledge and understanding, a
positive Jewish identity and
strong personal and communal
ties to and identification with the
State of Israel."
He said, in his report released

Shock at UNations
Kittani Elected President I General Assembly Rap8
UN degeneration wma never so
shockingly bared as with the
election of the Iraqi delegate, Is-
mat Kittani, as president of the
General Assembly. The UN is
supposed to be committed to
peace, but Iraq has a penchant
for aggression and war.
Iraq is the only country in the
world which is currently engaged
in two wars. She is still at war
with Israel and. strikingly, she is
the only Arab combatant which
has refused even to sign an ar-
mistice with the Jewish State.
Indeed, Iraq rejects the very
existence of Israel and regards
the letter's name aa anathema.
Israel is never referred to by Iraqi
authorities except in the con-
temptuous form of the "Zionist
Last autumn. Iraq unlsseherl
an invasion of Iran and is still en-
gaged in striving to destroy the
Iranian military and to carve out
a colonial area for herself, includ-
ing oil refineries.
TO SELECT the Iraqi delegate
as president of the General
Assembly is like choosing Mus-
solini's representative to head the
I sagos of Nations after fascist
Italy's conquest of Ethiopia
Some have tried to minimize the
rmrefts? by pointing to Kittani's
charm, intelligence and sophisti-
Kittani himself, however, un-
dercut the apologetics and sharp-
ly illuminated the spreading cor
ruption that gnaws at the UN
core. He boldly announced that
his election "speaks well for the
reputation and the standing cf
the Government of Iraq and what
it stands for in the international
codmi unity.
Whet compounds the gross ob-
scenity i the fact that the
General Assembly over which
Kittani is presiding will probably
go down in UN annals for its ax-
oected anti-Israel tirades. On the
current agenda is an Iraq
backed resolution censuring Is-
rael for the destruction of Bagh-
dad'* nuclear reactor. That oc
aired incidentally, Nov. 11.
If others welcomed the elimina-
tion of the reactor as s Middle
East Holocaust rescue operation,
the UN resolution calls for the
application of sanctions by the
Security Council.
Expulsion of Israel from the
General Assembly was first
seriously proposed in the summer
of 1979 at a conference of the non-
aligned, comprising 92 members,
held In Havana. With the PLO
acting as the driving force, the
so-called "Final Declaration" of
Havana formally called for
Israel's "exclusion from the in-
ternational community."
ON THE eve of the General
Assembly last year (Sep. 30,
I960), the 42-member Islamic
conference meeting in Fes,
Morocco, resolved to press for
Israel's removal from the UN.
But the split in Arab ranks flow-
ing from the Iraq-Iran war made
the decision "premature," in the
polite- language of Islamic diplo-
In January, 1981, the anti-
Israel drive was resumed with the
Islamic summit conference in

at a meeting of the non-aligned in

The statement carried a ring-
ing cautionary warning: "Such
action, if it is pressed, would have
the gravest consequences for
U.S. participation in the General
Assembly and for the future of
the UN itself."
The General Assembly has
adopted a resolution strongly
condemning Israel for its raid on
Iraq's nuclear reactor last June 7
and called on all states to stop
ths shipment of arms to Israel.
The vote was 109-2 and 34 abs-

JTA Feature Service
dim of the development towns
and the kibbutzim the fault lies
with the collectives which failed
to absorb any considerable
number of the new immigration
from Morocco and Iraq. Their
desire for exclusivity because of
the nature of the life they live
may be understood, but the
result is that, aside from a few
rare exceptions, the kibbutzim
are reservations of almost pure
Ashkenazi estates. This has
nothing to do with racialism; the
kibbutzim are above that. But
they themselves have chosen
Sociologically, too, the kibbutz
is not what it started out to be. A
breakdown of kibbutz population
shows that only about 19 percent
are engaged in agriculture, 18
percent in industry, and while the
kibbutz hires labor from outside
or advertises for "volunteers" to
come help them out, no less than
some 50 percent of the members
are engaged in what can be
termed services, public and
personal. An employer of labor
cannot demand that his employ-
ees love him, especially when
there is a marked and obvious
contrast in standards of living.
Furthermore, whereas in 1945
the kibbutz members accounted
for 6.4 percent of the Jewish pop-
ulation, today they are only 2;8 s
percent of Israel Jewry, and they
have difficulty retaining their
own young people on the kibbutz.
When the Labor Party mobilized
swarms of propaganda teams
from the kibbutzim who
descended on the cities and towns
of the country on the eve of elec-
tions to "teach" the benighted
city dwellers what was good for
them, the resentment was almost
to be expected. There were too
many who remembered that
under successive Labor Govern-
ments the kibbutzim had enjoyed
benefits and favoritism far out of
proportion to their numbers.
is If is very likely that aoroe of
fche unpopularity which the kiB-
hutzim cannot understand is due
to envy. Those who have not yet
reached the better life begrudge
those who have. By keeping
themselves aloof, socially, the
kibbutz members have not helped
things along.
And so public resentment has
mounted against the pretentious-
ness, the elitism and the haughti-
ness of the kibbutzim. In this
backlash, unfortunately, sight
has been lost of the constructive
achievements of the past, and the
positive social and educational
values which the Kibbutz can
atill teach to society here.

HE SAID that if there is any
reaction at all from Christian
churches to these attacks on
Jews it is cool, analytical and
aloof. He noted that even the
statement by the Council of
Christian Churches condemning
anti-Semitism lacked any expres-
sion of solidarity with Jews. He
attributed that attitude to the
fact that the Jewish people and
Israel are no longer seen as a sign
of hope but as a troublesome
In addition, Soetendorp said,
the churches view Judaism main-
ly as an interesting object ot

HAIFA During a pre-Rosh
Hashana interview Prime Minis-
tar Menachem Begin, in answer
to leading questions, criticized the
kibbutzim tor what he called their
haughty and superior attitude.
No wonder the inhabitants of the
development towns and im-
migrant centers dislike them, he
said, as they sit around their
swimming pools, like million-
aires. The allusion was to Labor
Party television programs which
interviewed kibbutz members at
their swimming pools.
The criticism was of course too
sweeping, and hence not alto-
gether fair. It might have been
forgotten, had not the kibbutz
movement decided to mount a
massive public relations cam-
paign in reply. The result has
now become a great national con-
troversy, and not all the voices
are being raised in defense of the
Even the critics do not hesitate
to credit the kibbutzim for their
great achievements in the early
days of national settlement.
Those who drained the swamps of
the Emek, or set up the towers
and stockades of the Galilee and
the Negev, those who pioneered a
new way of life which com-
manded the admiration of the
entire world, have earned their
place in the annals of the Zionist
movement and of Israel. But
those who have followed cannot
hide the fact that the kibbutz of
today is quite a different place,
except perhaps for a few of the
new and still struggling set-
In their indignant replies to
Begin, the kibbutz spokesmen
repeat that they can't understand
why people hate them so much.
And they are getting their replies
in full in the press and on radio
and television. The lack of popu-
larity of the kibbutz today may

kibbutz members themselves are
to blame.
The kibbutz members have
prided themselves on their
elitism, and on their superior way
of life. They may be absolutely
correct, but that is hardly a way
to win popularity. A foreign vol-
unteer working on a kibbutz told
his radio audience that when he
greets a kibbutz member in the
morning and smiles at him, the
chances are that the kibbuttnick
will not answer and will stride on.
