For those who have been fol-
lowing Vatican diplomacy in
Rome for the past two decades,
the profound transformation in
the Vatican's attitude towards
the entire non-Catholic world
(and not just Jewish or Israeli)
ever since the Second Ecumenical
Council, is obvious, and easy to
observe, from the broad direc-
tives to the very fine details in
whose context the Roman
Catholic Church expresses itself.
IN THE halls of Vatican City,
Israeli visitors will always be
greeted with a smiling Shalom by
Pope John Paul II, as they were
by Pope Paul VI; and Arab rep-
reeentatives will also be greeted
with a friendly Saalam. (The
Pope reads out his "Good Christ-
mas" greeting every year in 30 or
more languages, including

ism's ancestors), to be dealt with

sentatives sometimes fail to per-
ceive that while the forms taken
by Vatican communications will
always be marked by impeccable
civility, the contents will vary ac-
cording to a logical desire to keep
all parties at points of equidis-
jfficially accept
on of the Golan
Pope John Paul II-
tance, clearly defined in previous
documents issued by the Vatican
on the various issues involved.
Thus, there is nothing new in
the Vatican's demand for "a spe-
cial statute with international
guarantees" for Jerusalem. The
Vatican has long ceased demand-
ing and "internationalization" of
the city, but neither is it about to
accept a "unilateral" (or not
"agreed upon") action on Jerusa-
lem's destiny.
Nor can it ol
Israel's annexation
Heights because this means Isra-
el is not "sticking to internation-
al conventions," as waa noted in
the long Vatican prear nmuni-
que released after Foreign Minis
tar Yitzhak Shamir's audience
with the Pope last Thursday.
THE LENGTH of that com-
munique and its prompt appear-
ance in the official Vatican press
organ, Osservatort Romano, are
both signs of the exceptional
importance given to the encoun-
ter. Within the very carefully
chosen and moderate summing-
up of both sides' views in the
Vatican version of the audience,
several points emerge.
The Vatican apparently took in
the "information briefing" on Is-
rael's positions given by Shamir
with good grace, and in return,
made several demands of Israel.
In addition to its request that
Israel make no further "one-sided
moves" of annexation, it is
asking Israel to extend "the
peace negotiation process to all
interested parties" and to im-
prove the quality of its relation-
ship to its Palestinian popula-
The exact words are: "An effi-
cient contribution would be for
the Palestinians in the West
Bank and Gaza to enjoy condi-
tions of serenity in full respect of
all rights."Moderation" is de-
manded of Israel in regard to
Lebanon, to help, along with "all
parties," to give their "contribu-
tions for extending and consoli-
dating the truce that has been
achieved for several months in
that region..."
For those ever on the alert for
fine points in the Vatican's
selection of words, it is noted that
while the Vatican has not yet of-
ficially recognized Israel it freely
speaks of "The State of Israel."
This press release which makes
reference to a "just a and fair
solution" to the Palestinian
problem also "takes into account
the problem of the security of the
State of Israel."
BY THE same token, the bela-
bored preference of one verb over
another in reporting Shamir's
outline of Israel's position of Je-
rusalem reveals the Vatican's
difficulty in accepting Israel's
"onesided" claim on Jerusalem.
The text states that Minister
Shamir "pointed out that the
present situation fa the Holy City
reflects its particular significance
fa the history of the Jewish
people ." The verb "reflects"
was obviously typed into a blank
space left in 'he previously
printed text. Reportedly the verb
actually used by Shamir was
"does justice to."
The communique also takes
note of Israel's concern over "the
massive influx of arms in the
region and the grave problems of
terrorism," of "the safeguarding
and free access to the holy places
of all faiths and their self-man-
agement" and "Israel's efforts to
assure the well-being of the dif-
ferent communities.''
ISRAEL'S "commitment to
reaching a global and just
solution to the conflict while
safeguarding the security of
Israel" and "the efforts and con-
cessions made by Israel" were
published as being airong the
main points of Shamir's .nessage.

Filling in Background
Haig's Quick Stop Yielded More Blah-Blah
Declaring that he came here "pri-
marily to focus on the peace pro-
cess, especially the autonomy
talks," Secretary of State
Alexander Haig plunged into a
aeries of meetings with Israel's
top leaders last week.
He spent two hours in a work-
ing session with Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, followed by a
meeting with Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon and a 2'/i hour
meeting with Premier Menachem
Begin at his home.
At his meeting with Shamir,
Haig presented a long list of de-
tailed questions on Israel's posi-
tions with respect^to autonomy
for the West Bank and Gaza
Strip. Israeli officials had already
prepared a working paper for
Haig setting forth the govern-
ment's views and elaborated
verbally in great detail, according
to reports.
HAIG, who spend two days in
Egypt before visiting Israel, told
reporters on his plane from Cairo
that there was some optimism
that the difference between Israel
and Egypt over autonomy could
be bridged. But he cautioned that
the process would need months of
Haig reportedly said, during
his meeting with Shamir, that
there was "no deadline" for
agreement but stressed the im-
portance of making substantial
progress before Israel completes
its withdrawal from Sinai next

pressure or dictates against any
decision he might take to resume
relations with Israel.
April. Haig made similar state-
ments in Cairo.
He told reporters, on his arri-
val at Ben Gurion Airport, that
working teams of Israel, Egypt
and the U.S. had made "im-
portant progress" until now and
that President Reagan has "con-
cluded the time has come to see
whether or not it is possible to
bring about" a breakthrough.
HAID SAID, after meeting
with Begin, that the Reagan Ad-
ministration would be "making
determinations" on its Middle
East policy in the coming weeks
on the basis of the assessments
he makes of his visit to Egypt
and Israel. "We will go home .

consideration of (appointing) a
high-level negotiator, or we could
consider something different
but hopefully more effective."
It was uncertain whether Haig
planned to return to the region
himself or to have a ranking
American envoy continue the
task. He made it apparent that he
did not intend to present prop-
osals of his own on this trip and
regards it as a fact-finding mis-
sion and a boost to the lagging
autonomy talks.
"We didn't come here with any
formuale. We're here to be a cata-
lyst, a full partner," Haig said.
He said that the U.S., having
been intimately involved in the
talks so far, was fully aware of
the "important differences" that
divide the parties.
He said Washington is "seek-
ing to contribute to the mo-
mentum of progress with a view
toward, hopefully, having an

deadlines, of course."

conversation. They were joined
later by their aides and other
ministers. Haig confirmed re-
ports that he would be sending
Nicholas Veliotes, Assistant
Secretary for Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs and a former
Ambassador to Jordan, to
Amman to sound out the Jor-
danians on the possibility that
they might reverse their negative
attitude toward the Camp David
peace process.
Kol Israel Radio reported that
during the Haig Shamir meeting
the Israelis remained adamantly
negative on the issue of voting
rights for East Jerusalem Arabs
in the autonomy elections. Sha-
mir angrily dismissed a sugges-
tion made by former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin in a position paper
prepared for discussion by the
Labor Party's Central Com-
mittee, that Jerusalem Arabs be
allowed to vote in nearby town-
ships such as Bethlehem but not
to run for election themselves in
West Bank localities.
Shamir said Israel was not
proposing to make any further
concessions. He charged that
proposals by Rabin and other
opposition leaders "weakened our
image." Rabin made it clear that
his views were his own.

Confined to Wheelchair
Incensed Begin Tried to Kill Radio Show
Premier Menachem Begin, still
confined to a wheelchair because
of a hip injury last month, ap-
peared in the Knesset to defend
his intervention to kill a radio
news broadcast critical of De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon. Mo-
tions critical and supportive of
the Premier's action were
presented for debate.
The Kol Israel news item that
aroused Begin's wrath quoted
former Chief of Staff Haim
Barlev, a prominent figure in the
opposition Labor Party, as
saying that ta could not sleep
peacefully while Sharon held the
Defense Ministry post because
Sharon was mentally "un-
balanced." Barlev's remarks were
taken from an interview to be
published in a forthcoming issue
of the Labor Party's monthly
magazine Migvan.
chief of the Prime Minister's
Office, Yehiel Kadishai, to de-
mand an "apology" from Kol Is-
rael for broadcasting the item.
There was no apology but the
item, broadcast at 2 p.m.
Saturday, was not repeated in
subsequent newscasts.
Opposition factions promptly
accused the Premier of censor-
ship. Labor MK Ora Namir and
Mordechai Virshubeky of Shinui
said his intervention threatened
to return Israel Radio to the
"dark days" of the State's early
years when it was a department
of the Prime Minister's Office
and took its editorial orders from
the Prime Minister.
They recalled that Begin, as
leader of the opposition at that
time, bitterly criticized what he
called an anti-democratic state of
Begin told the Knesset that he
agreed that a full-scale debate
should be held on "whether a
State media should be an anti-
government media." He claimed
the issue was not "freedom of ex-
pression" but "freedom to cast
shame and insult."
ISRAEL RADIO and tele-
vision is run by the Broadcasting
Authority, a quasi-independent
agency modeled on Britain's
BBC. Funding and statutory res-
ponsibility fall on the govern-
ment. A supervisory body made
up of public figures is responsible
for content.
In the case of the Kol Israel
item, Begin said he had to defend
Sharon's honor. He noted that it
was Barlev, as Chief of Staff, who
appointed Sharon to command of
the critical southern front with
Egypt in 1969.
Modal Demands Inquiry

appointed by Justice Minister
Moshe Nisaim, who will consult
with both Interior Minister Yosef
Burg (who has responsibility for
the pelice) and Education Minis-
ter Zevuhin Hammer (who has
statutory responsibility for the
, Broadcasting Authority). Modai
wants both the police and the
television news department to be
looked into with a view to pre-
venting in the future publication
of allegations that are later
proved groundless.
In Modai's case. Israel TV has
published as its headline story a
report based on a polka state-
ment that the police fraud squad
was "gathering intelligence
data" about accusations that
Modai had taken kickbacks from
itate oil deals during his term as
vtinister of Energy (1977-81).
Modal claims that the police
statement was inaccurate and
that the TV news desk played it
tendentiously. Two days later,
Attorney General Yitzhak Zamir
and the police issued subsequent
statements totally clearing
Modai by explaining that the
"date"in the hands of the police
contained no substantive mater-
THE "data" was apparently
given to the police by Labor MK

months ago submitted a Knesset
question to the Prime Minister on
the same subject. Modai has said

Over the weekend, Modai criti-
cized Zamir's handling of the af-
fair, charging him with "insensi-
tivity." Modai said in an inter-
view that Zamir need not have
waited 48 hours before publicly
clearing him, since he knew all
along that Hashai's "data" was
On another aspect of the affair,
Modai is still at daggers drawn
with his fellow Liberal minister
and successor as the Energy
Minister, Yitzhak Berman, al-
though Liberal Party leader Sim-
cha Ehrlich has pledged to try
and make peace between them.
Their animosity was on public
show at a Liberal Party Central
Committee meeting. Modai was
warmly cheered and Berman boo-
ed by delegates. But Berman
took the rostrum to say that he
would not forgive Modai for hav-
ing besmirched him on a TV
peak-hour talk show the night
before. Modai hit out at Berman
for his Ministry's having an-
nounced the creation of a com-
mittee to examine Israel's oil-
buying procedure just during the
days when the allegations
against Modai were headline
Berman said the announce-
ment was coincidental and was
not in fact initiated by his Minis-
try, and the actual decision to set
up the committee was taken a
month ago.

25 Persons Injured In
Terrorist Bombing
in West Berlin
West Berlin police arrested
six Palestinians over the
weekend suspected of in-
volvement in the bombing
of an Israeli restaurant
there last Friday night in
which 25 persons were
injured, including a 14-
month-old child reported in
critical condition. The sus-
pects were later released.
The restaurant, Mifgash Is-
rael, is located in the center of the
city. A group calling itself the
Peoples League of Free Palestine
claimed responsibility for the
outrage in an anonymous tele-
phone call to the West German
news agency's Berlin office.
Later, another group, called
the Arab May 15 Organization
for the Liberation of Palestine,
announced in Beirut that it had
carried out the attack. The same
group had claimed responsibility
for bombing the El Al office in
Istanbul Jan. 9.
But according to West Berlin
police, the suspects detained were
believed to be members of the
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine. However, chief in-
3 Policemen
policemen were injured in a clash
in the Israeli Arab village of
Taibe near Kfar Saba, when
income tax inspectors tried to
collect taxes from delinquent
shopkeepers and merchants.
Police took advantage of the en-
forcement activity to round up
people suspected of drug traffick-
ing and illegal activities.
vestigator Manfred Kittlau said
there was no concrete evidence
implicating them and that the
police were considering all possi-
bilities. Heinz Galinski, chairman
of the West Berlin Jewish com-
munity, said the bombing con-
firmed recent warnings that vio-
lence-prone extremist groups of
both left and right were increas-
ingly active in West Germany.
The restaurant, which special-
ized in Israeli and Middle East
cuisine, is owned by Deny Mer-
ger and Naftali Schoenberg, both
Israeli citizens. It was severely
damaged by the bomb.
(A bomb blast caused exten-
sive damage to the Tel Aviv of-
fice of Lufthansa, the West Ger-
man airlines, last Saturday night
and shattered windows in a wide
area around Hayarkon Street
where the office is located. There
were no casualties. Police investi-
gating the incident said it may
have been in retaliation for the
West Berlin bombing).

Solidarity and the Mossad
The new year of 1982 begins overshadowed by
the ominous events in Poland. No responsible citizen
of the 20th century who cares about human rights
and freedom can view with anything but the gravest
alarm this gre_at tragedy of Poland.
The Solidarity reform movement, a genuine
proletarian movement for social justice and civil
liberties, is cruelly repressed by Communist totali-
tarian might. Jewish leaders, believing in the inter-
dependence of the struggle for democracy and human
rights, have joined many religious and ethnic groups
in supporting vigorously Lech Walesa and the
Solidarity movement. Jewish groups with others
have demanded an end to the repressive military
rule, have sought humanitarian aid for the Polish
people, and have called upon the American govern-
ment to help find refuge for Polish refugees.
The Soviet Union's latest belicosity, featuring
charges that it is Israel's Mossad that is behind
Solidarity's struggle against Kremlin-type oppres-
sion, proves the point.
The only bright spot in that grim travesty is
that Solidarity leaders and Polish American spokes-
men have rejected outright that obscenity.
After Auschwitz, even Polish Communists should'

France to Rebuild Iraq Reactor;
Vows Only Low-Grade Fuel
PARIS (JTA) France
said that it will supply Iraq with
low-enriched "Caramel"* uranium
and a low-grade fuel not suitable
for weapons when it reconstructs
Iraq's nuclear reactor which was
destroyed last June by Israel.
Foreign Minister Claude
Cheysson told Parliament that
France has already informed Iraq
that the new equipment supplied
by France will be based on non-
military fuel and that contrary to
Baghdad's demands, formerly
enriched uranium will no longer
be shipped to Iraq. France, which
opposes the spread of nuclear
arms, is formally committed to
reconstructing the nuclear plant
at Tamuz, near Baghdad.
that France has added an addi-
tional condition to rebuilding the
reactor: the new installations will
have to be under the permanent
control of the Vienna-baaed In-
ternational Atomic Energy Com-
mission. France also wants to
post permanently some of its own
experts on the site to make sure
that the Iraqis do not transform
the reactor or try to put it to any
possible use connected with arms
development projects.
In his statement in Parliament,
Cheysson said: "The French
government is ready to pursue its
nuclear cooperation with Iraq but
wants to ensure that all neces-
sary guarantees exist as to its
peaceful and strictly civilian
use.'' The minister stressed that
France intends to use "the most
recent technology''to ensure that
the reactor is not diverted to any
other use.
UJA Issues Statement
on Jews of Poland
NEW YORK, N.Y.-Herschel
Blumberg, National Chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal, today
issued a statement expressing
"deep concern for the well-being
of our brother* and sisters in
Poland" and describing UJA'a
role in supporting human ser-
vices for the Polish Jewish
In a letter to UJA leadership
nationwide, Blumberg stated:
Increasingly in recent weeks the
lay and professional leadership of i
the United Jewish Appeal has
been asked about UJA's role in
support of the tiny and
threatened community of Jews in i
"** allocated from UJA
J^Mafey campaigns are
te^d by UJA to the
"c*n Jvwisn Joint Distribu-
tion Committee which serves
Polish Jewry," he continued.
"The Polish Jewish community
currently numbers approxi-
mately 6,000 Jews, of whom
about 3,000 regularly receive help
from JDC.
"JDC is alert to the needs of
this community and is respond-
ing to them," Blumberg wrote.
"I know we all share deep con-
cern for the well-being of our
brothers and sisters in Poland,"
the UJA National Chairman
stated. "It is a nation that has
given birth to generations of
American Jews and that has)
played a highly significant role in
our history and heritage.
"We pray for the peace of
Poland and all her people," the
letter concluded.
On the premise that "the
American Jewish woman has
been ignored in the standard
chronicles of this country's Jew-
ry," a famous Jewish historian,
Jacob Radar Marcus, has prepar-
ed two volumes to fill the gap.
One la "The American Jewish
Woman, 1664-1960," a 266-page
narrative. The other, "The
American Jewish Woman: A
Documentary History," contains
1.200 pages of letters, wills,
memoirs and biographical

THE BOOKS introduce the
reader to little-known but re-
markable American Jewish wom-
en who are included chrono-
logically and by their fields of
achievement. They include:
Anna Roch Marks, who, with
hired hands and drawn guns,
blocked the Denver and Rio
Grande Railroad when its of-
ficials tried to extend the line
across her land in Eureka, Kan-
Sophie Goldsmith, a 19th Cen-
tury German-born housewife,
who began by sewing basketballs
and wound up running the multi-
million dollar MacGregor sport-
ing goods operation;
Eugenia Phillips of Alabama,
an anti-Yankee political activist
who was jailed by Union troops
during the Civil War;
Florence Prag Kahn. Amer-
ica's first Jewish woman member
of Congress, a Republican from
San Francisco elected to six con-
secutive terms.

most beloved musical recitalists,
whose recording of "Carry Me
Back to Old Virginny" sold more
than two million copies. She and
her husband, violinist Efrem
Zimbalist. converted to
IN THE fight for women's
rights, Dr. Marcus, who is also
director of the American Jewish
Archives, writes about Ernestine
Rose, a widely-known social re-
former, described as perhaps the
nation's most famous Jewish wo-
man in the mid- 19th Century.
Before there was Gloria Stein-
em, there was her grandmother,
Pauline, the first woman elected
to public office in Toledo, Ohio,
who served as president of the
Ohio Suffrage Association. Dr.
Marcus also paid tribute to Betty
Friedan, who, he wrote "perhaps
more than anyone else has helped
emancipate women in the home
and in the office.
The Jewish women include a
remarkable array of political tal-
ent. Along with the internation-
ally-known Emma Goldman,
there waa Belle Moskowiu, ad-
viser to New York Governor Al
Smith, described by the New
York Times as "having wielded
more political power than any
woman in the United States"
Anna M. Rosenberg served aa
Assistant Secretary of Defense
during the Truman Administra-
tion, the highest position in
government yet reached by an
American Jewish woman. Con-
temporary figures include Bella
Abiug; Elizabeth Holtzman, for-
mer Democratic Representative
and now Brooklyn District At-
torney; and Beaa Myerson, one-
time beauty quean who became a
consumer activist and political

founder of the Henry Street Set-
tlement on New York's Lower
East Side, and Golda Meir, who
became the grandmother figure
of Israel and its first and so far
only woman Prime Minister.
IN THE ARTS, Marcus listed
writers, Dorothy Parker, Fannie

among many.
The American Jewish
businesswoman is exemplified by
Jennie Grossinger of the famous
Catakill hotel; and Helena
Rubenstein, who sift a personal
estate of more than 6100 million.
The two volumes ware co-pub-
lished by Ktav Publishing House
of New York, and the American
Jewish Archives of Cincinnati.
Mossad Aids
Soviets Say
NEW YORK (JTA) The Soviet magazine, New
Times, has charged that "the Zionist elements" in Soli-
darity, the Polish trade union movement, were "receiving
aid from Mossad," the Israeli intelligence agency.
According to reports from Moscow, the news magazine
accused Mossad of "trying hard to create chaos in
IT ALSO ALLEGED that Mossad was coordinating
its activities in Poland with the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA). According to New Times. Israel pressed
for strong Western measures against Poland to divert
attention from its annexation of the Golan Heights and to
prevent the return of normalcy in Poland.
The Moscow reports said the Soviet press has quoted
Polish newspaper charges that Jews in the Solidarity
leadership were involved in a "Zionist conspiracy" to
overthrow the Polish government.
Sinai Settlers Claim Victory'
In Battle to Stop Withdrawal
I' Itra nationalists deter-
mined to block Israel's
withdrawal from Sinai next
April claimed a "victory"
after the government
reached a compromise with
Gush Emunim militants in
northern Sinai to halt the
dismantling of buildings
and equipment slated for
transportation to relocation
areas inside Israel.
According to the agreement,
Jewish Agency workers at
Moshav Haruvit will remove
parts of a greenhouse already
taken down but will not disman-
tle any other structures. Hanan
Porat, of the ultra-nationalist
Tehiya faction who has demon-
stratively moved to Yamit, hailed
the compromise as "a great vic-
SQUATTERS in northern
Sinai, mainly yeshiva students,
began reassembling greenhouse

Maryland Seeks Halt to Attacks of Prejudice by Bigots
(JTA) The State of
Maryland and Montgomery
County (Md.) are trying to
stop the growing number of
incidents aimed at Jews,
Blacks and other minority
groups by involving all ele-
ments of the community in
an effort to combat bigotry.
This was stressed as Mont-
gomery County Executive Char-
D.C. Council
To Mark
King Birthday
The Jewish Community Council
of Greater Washington will mark
the anniversary of the birthday of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by
distributing a statement the late
civil rights leader made on Soviet
Jewry during one of the JCC's
daily noon vigils across the street
from the Soviet Embassy here.
The JCC's Social Action and
Urban Affairs Committee mean-
while has issued a statement
honoring King's memory not
only as a civil rights leader but
also as an "articulate spokesman
in the cause of Israel and Soviet
"We honor him as a man of
courage and vision, a man of
great dreams and great actions, a
seeker of non-violence and
peace," the statement said. "His
leadership of the civil rights
struggle is a chapter in American
history from which all of us can
draw inspiration and renewed
strength. We honor him also as a
friend of the State of Israel."
The King statement said: "I
cannot stand idly by, even
though I live in the United States
and even though I happen to be
an American Negro, and not be
concerned about what happens to
my brothers and sisters who
happen to be Jews in Soviet

les Gilchriat received the Torch of
Liberty Award from the District
of Columbia-Maryland Region of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith. The award, present-
ed at a luncheon at B'nai B'rith
headquarters here, commended
Gilchrist for taking the lead to
try to eradicate racially, reli-
giously and ethnically motivated
violence and vandalism in his
county, a suburb of Washington.
"SILENCE condones," Con-
stance Biems, chairperson of
Maryland Gov. Harry Hughes'
Task Force on Violence and Ex-
tremism, said, "to speak out
(against incidents of bigotry)
does not inflame." Biems said
that in appointing the task force,
which includes the three branches
of the Maryland state govern-
ment and county and local of-
ficials, Hughes said he did not
want a report or proposals for
new legislation.
Instead, administrative
changes are being made as the
need is found for them, Biems
said, and the task force is trying
to involve both the public and
government officials in the prob-
lem. She said the task force right
now is trying to alert local of-
ficials to be prepared for the
problem when it begins to recur,
probably in the spring.
Biems had particular praise for
the Baltimore County police
which, she said, are treating such
incidents with the same "sever-
ity" as major crimes, such as
rape and murder. She added that
the participation of Baltimore
County in the investigation of
such incidents includes removing
swastikas and crosses from the
scene and alerting neighbors to
the problem.
member of the National Execu-
tive Committee of the ADL who
presented the award to Gilchriat,
noted that the ADL reported that
anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S.
doubled in 1981 over 1980. But,
he said, in Montgomery County,
where there were 25 racially, reli-
giously or ethnically motivated
incidents in 1980, there were 100
in 1981. including 40 which were
clearly anti-Semitic.
Steinberg also warned against
silence and stressed that Mont-
gomery County, under Gilchrist's
leadership has been trying to in-
volve all sections of the com-
munity in the problem.

Dinitz Warns of Adverse Ethnic Groups Create National Debate
*. -. r,____i^.. nnr Hid the Oil COl
U.S. Action After Apr. 25
cha Dinitz, former Israeli Am-
bassador to the U.S., declared
here that Israel should give top
priority to repairing its relations
with Washington. Addressing
the 25th national convention o)
the Labor Zionist Alliance, the
former envoy, a prominent mem-
ber of the opposition Labor
Party, said the present state of
U.S.-Israel relations is hit
"greatest concern." ,
Dinitz stressed that the focus
of Israeli diplomacy now must b<
to reach a memorandum of agree-
ment with the U.S. that woulc
recommit it to the proposition
that Israel should have secure
and recognized boundaries; that
it rejects a Palestinian state; and
that it continues to support a
unified Jerusalem.
that once Israel completes itc
withdrawal from Sinai next April
it will come under great pressure
to withdraw to its pre-1967
borders on all fronts, to divide
Jerusalem and to allow the estab-
lishment of a Palestinian state
headed by Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir Arafat.
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D., N.Y.)
told the LZA convention that
"not since Suez in 1956 have the
relations between the United
States and Israel been at the
breaking point." He said that
American support for Israel "is
stretched dangerously thin." He
indicated that if new tensions
develop between the U.S. and Is-
Simcha Dinitz
reel, American foreign aid to the
Jewish State could be in
At the final session of the LZA
convention Rabbi Ezra Spice-
handler, Distinguished Service
Professor of Hebrew Literature
at the Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion in
Cincinnati, was elected president.
A SCHOLAR, writer and
active Labor Zionist leader,
Spicehandler .succeeds Prof. Al-
len Pollack, who has announced
that he is making aliya.
Spicehandler, who was a vice
president of the World Union of
Progressive Judaism and is now
a member of that group's govern-
ing board, said "the rise of po-
litical and religious reaction in
both East and West brings with
it a new threat to Jewish physical
survival and Jewish spiritual life.
UJA Cash Flow Reported
By UJA in 1981
NEW YORK The United
Jewish Appeal collected more
than $301 million in 1981 a
peacetime record to help pro-
vide humanitarian programs and
services to Jews in need in Israel
and worldwide, Edgar L. Cadden,
UJA National Cash chairman an-
nounced earlier this month.
Cadden described the record
campaign total as "a watermark
for Jewish humanitarian efforts
in this century."
The $301,179,967 collected, a
14 percent increase over the
$287.5 million collected in 1980,
represents an overwhelming re-
sponse by Jewish communities
around the country to calls for
cash to meet what UJA leaders
called "the greatest cash collec-
tion crisis since the Yom Kippur
In a joint statement of con-
gratulations to Federation presi-
dents, campaign chairmen, cash
chairman and executive direc-
tors, UJA National Chairman
Herschel W. Blumberg and Cad-
den saluted the outstanding lead-
ership and extraordinary efforts
of Jewish communal leaders.
"Your efforts will help relieve
the financial burdens borne by
the Jewish Agency and JDC and
enable them to continue to pro-
vide programs and services for
Jews around the world. You have
demonstrated once again the
dedication and unity so char-
acteristic of Jewish life. We can
all take pride in this great
Cadden noted that these funds
are allocated to UJA from com-
munity campaigns conducted in
211 federated and 466 non-fed-
erated communities in the United
Suites. The National Cash Chair-
man Cadden noted that out of the
$301 million total, $83,391,801 of
the total collected was forwarded
to UJA in the month of Decem-
ber, underscoring the continuing
problem of an erratic cash flow to
the Jewish Agency in Israel and
to the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee, UJA'a
principal beneficiary agencies.
Cadden pointed out that some
major communities have com-
mitted themselves to a monthly
tranamittal of funds in even
amounts to UJA in the hope of
reversing the uneven cash flow
that results from an inadequate
flow of money during the year.
Representative Benjamin Rosen-
thai (D., N.Y.) said that Jews and
other American ethnic groups, by
taking stands on foreign policy
issues that concern them, create a
national debate on these issues,
many of them like the recent sale
of AWACS and other military
equipment to Saudia Arabia
harmful to this country.
If the ethnic groups did not in-
volve themselves in the issues, it
would leave foreign policy to the
arms industry, oil companies, the
New York banks, which lend
money to countries to buy arms,
and the foreign policy establish-
ment within and outside the
government, Roeenthal said.
"To do that would be a disaster
for this country and the demo-
cratic institutions we all believe
in," he told the monthly public
affairs forum of B'nai B'rith In-
ROSENTHAL'S talk was an
attack on the article by Sen.
Charles Mathias (R., MD.) in
Foreign Affairs Quarterly last
summer in which Mathias said,
ethnic groups like Jews, Greeks
and Irish Americans should not
seek to influence foreign affairs.
Instead, Mathias argued, only
the President has the national
constituency needed to take na-
tional interests into consideration
in developing foreign affairs.
"One does not have to be a part
of the Greek or the Jewish, or the
Irish lobbies, as some would call
them, to take serious issue with
any argument that deprives
groups of Americans of a com-
petency and natural right to de-
bate and seek to influence their
government," said Rosenthal, an
18 veer veteran of the House
Foreign Affairs Committee. nor did thej^ompanv
* numerous newspaper aaveru

the recent AWACS debate, yet
they were only supporting the
policy they expected from Presi-
dent Reagan as a result of the
stand he took during last year's
Presidential campaign. Rosen-
thai said that in his nearly 20
years in Congress every Presi-
dent from Kennedy to Reagan
had said during their campaign
"what we want to hear about
BUT HE said that once they
get them into office they become
"Presidential" and become a
"captive" of the "national
security apparatus" which he
described as the State Depart-
ment, the Defense Department
and the intelligence community.
He said the AWACS deal was
proposed because the Air Force
wanted to cut the cost ratio of the
plane and the Saudis are the only
ones with the money to buy
them. But he said, once the
proposal was supported by the
President, it became a test of the
President's ability to conduct
foreign affairs.
Rosenthal said the same thing
happened to Greek Americans
who saw Jimmy Carter as a can-
didate support their stand
against arms to Turkey and then
reverse himself when he became
President. But Rosenthal said
that the Greek Americans were
not subject to the same kind of
"vitriolicattack" as where Jews
during the last few weeks.
Rosenthal said that Mathias,
while ruling out a role for ethnics
in foreign policy did not say any-
thing about the major corpora-
tions who lobby for their views.
He said the role of Mobil in the
AWACS sale was not mentioned
ALSO NOT mentioned he said,
was the role of such companies as
Bechtel, the San Francisco
engineering corporation, which
does millions of dollars of con-
struction work in Saudi Arabia
and for whom Caspar Weinberger
was a Vice President before be-
coming Secretary of Defense.
Meanwhile in Boston, Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D.. Mass.)
made some of the same points in
a speech there. "I reject ab-
solutely the unworthy appeals
which in affect question the
patriotism of Jewish Amerv
cans," he told the New England
Chapter of the .American
Associates of the Ben Gurion
University of the Negev.
"The Administration com-
plains that Jewish Americans
were vigorously expressing their
views. But where were the
Administration's complaints
about the corporations that
lobbied hard for AWACS because
of the business it would bring?
Now why were there no com-'
plaints about Saudi Princes glid-
ing through the halls of Con-
"support for Israel is not an act
of charity; it is a matter of na-
tional security." He said "Israel
has no need of fairweather
friends," a reference to Senators
who at the last moment switched
their vote to support the
AWACS sale. "Neither Israel nor
the United States will be served
by politicians who profess one
thing and do another," Kennedy
said. "And none of us can rely on'
conservatives proclaiming i
biblical allegiance to Israel who
can then be turned around in a
single White House meeting."

'Boy' Gives Birth to Second Child

IrVNntnl Mom
By JTA Services
TEL AVIV A 27-year-old
Israeli woman, who was a boy for
the first five years of her life, has
recently given birth to her second
child, a doctor at Kaplan Hospi-
tal in Rehovot confirmed. Doc-
tors said it was possibly the first
case in medical history of a sex-
changed person giving birth. Her
first baby was born three years
ago and, like the second born a
few weeks ago, was delivered by
Caesarian section.
The unidentified woman was
born with male sexual organs and
named and registered as a boy.
But soon after birth bis parents
noticed some unusual features
and doctors established, after
checks, that the infant had a full
set of female internal organs. A
first operation made her into a
girl at an early age, with a sup-
plementary operation performed
at age 16. The woman married
seven years ago and conceived
after receiving hormone treat-
no immediate confirmation here
of reports that unidentified at-
tackers set off bombs at the Is-
raeli, Argentine and Haitian em-
bassies in Guatemala City. The
State Department and the Israel
Embassy told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that they had no
information on the attacks.
According to the reports from
Guatemala City, guards at the
Israeli Embassy opened fire on
the attackars who fled in a car.
There were no reports of similar
action at the two other embas-
sies. A Guatemala City police
source was quoted as saying
there were no casualties and only
minor damage from the attacks.
It wae not determined whether
the attackers were leftist or
members of ultra-rightwing
groups which have been involved
in political warfare in Guatemala
for the past year.
PARIS Former President
Valery Giscard D'Estaing said
that he plans to visit Israel soon
as a gesture of good will towards
the Jewish State. Giscard, who
during his seven years as Presi-
dent, steered France along an
anti-Israeli and pro-Arab course,
made this pledge st an election
meeting in one of Paris' Jewish
areas. Giscard was speaking in
support of Gaulliat candidate
Jacque Dominati who is running
for the National Assembly in
France's first by-election since
last June's Socialist victory.
The former President did not
say when he plena to visit Israel.
Sources close to Giscard said Is-
raeli Premier Menschem Begin
invited him to Israel when the
two met during Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat's funeral last
French sources said, in the
meantime, that though President
Franco1 is Mitterrand has decided
to postpone his forthcoming trip
to Israel, initially scheduled for
Feb. 10, he will go to Israel before
Israel's final Sinai withdrawal
Apr. 26.
BONN Gustav Richter, a

Richter, 69, was s consultant

his insistence, the Rumanian au-

UN Wrangle Over Golan
Goes On.. .And On...
Combatting Anti-Zionism
SADLY DISEASES have a habit of revisit-
lankind in increasingly virulent strains. His-
[ally, .Jews were persecuted for their religion,
in modern times they have been slaughtered
leing a race. And today we are witnessing the
rgence of anti-Zionism, which only a genera-
after six million Jews died in the Holocaust,
[tes the very existence of a Jewish people and
their right to self determination in the
I of Israel.
j World Zionist Organization, in its capacity
Eder of world Zionism, has now established a
"force to spearhead the fight against anti-
Ism. Chairman of the Department of Infor-
an, Eli Eyal, told a recent gathering of the
tral Zionist Council in Jerusalem that UN
[ution 3379, equating Zionism with Racism,
i libel as weighty as the Damascus blood libel
Ithe Dreyfus Affair. "This libel," he asserted,
Vaksof the final solution."
JT anti-Zionism is a plague that is cunningly
Stant to many of the medicines traditionally
to cure anti-Semitism. Aa Eyal warns,
entification of anti-Semitism with anti-
lism is possible and even appropriate but at
\r times it is harmful."
ie main thrust of anti-Zionism unquestiona-
I comes from the unholy alliance between the
let Union and the Arab world, linked to neo-
}i groups in the West. But while anti-Semitism
always focused on groundless lies, anti-
nsm is built around distortions and half
ths of Zionism as a legitimate liberation move-
it. Anti-Zionism uses classical anti-Semitism,
le at the same time generating a new anti-
litism. The game is the same but the rules are
Vell-intentioned and intelligent people can be
kly tricked if they hear only one side of the
Iry. As Father James McWhirter, a Free
lurch Minister now living in Jerusalem told Is
bl Scene Magazine. "I was an anti-Zionist."
[' I HAD visited the West Bank as a journalist
p the territory was in Jordanian hands. I was
pen round the refugee camps and was outraged
what I saw. I saw only human tragedy, not the
litics that caused these wretched people to be
1 as a whipping post against Israel. And I said
in these Jews for causing such problems'."
such sentiments reflect how anti-Zionism in the
est can either be combatted through persuasion
lead to anti-Semitism.
The main aim of the WZO will be to increase
eness of the nature of the problem and to
i Jews and non-Jews alike an understanding of
)m the battle is against. Too few Jews, let
ue non-Jews possess the knowledge to counter
>us anti-Zionist arguments, which are often
forward by Jews themselves. Many young
its on university campuses feel a valid point
been made when Arabs tell them that they
lot be anti-Semitic because they too are
itic. They are not aware enough to counter
ft the logic of this is that Hitler would not harm
>peans because he too was European.
the face of slick and well-paid Palestinian
?paganda, Zionists cannot and snouiu not
)rally try to avoid difficult issues like the Arab
lgee problem. This does not mean that the
aeli cause is one for apologists Chaim Weiz-
inn's theory that the establishment of Israel
[lowed the line of the least injustice should be
BUT MOST important, the cynical role that
the Arab states have played in aggravating the
Palestinian problem should be exposed. As the
French philosopher, Bernard Henri-Levi, stated
on a recent visit to Israel, "The Arab bourgeoisie,
which prevented the establishment of an indepen-
dent Palestinian state in 1948, used the Pales-
tinians as cannon fodder."
Just as the Jews were scapegoats for the prob-
lemsof their host nations, so Israel is to blame for
the problems of the world. Arab governments use
the "Zionist threat" to paper over internal divi-
sions. In Iran and even in Poland, where no Jews
remain, the Zionists are said to be the cause of
domestic problems. The United Nations Ls pre-
vented from executing its everyday work by
spurious motions condemning Zionist deeds. For
example at women's rights conferences the red
herring of the suppression of Palestinian women's
rights has replaced real issues.
This phenomenon is reflected in the title of an
essay by Prof. Irving Louis Horowitz entitled
"From Pariah People to Pariah Nation." He also
calls anti-Zionism the nationalism of fools and a
chauvinistic movement uniting right and left.
INDEED IN some senses the situation is worse
than it seems. Many governments, most notably
in Latin America, that are amongst Israel's most
ardent supporters, practice abhorrent anti-
Semitism on their own population. A revolution,
as in Iran, or shifting international alliances, as
in Black Africa, can bring popular anti-Semitism
to the fore ard see Israel diplomatically stabbed
in the back. Not that criticism of Israel means
anti-Semitism, but once the denial of its right to
exist is promoted, then the logical conclusion can
only be another holocaust.
The situation that the WZO task force hopes to
counter is a dire one. The western media is riddled
with support for the Palestinian state of the PLO
which would deprive Jews of the right to self
determination and lead to a conflict far bloodier
than Lebanon, which Yasir Arafat until recently
upheld as the desired secular democratic blue-
print for his state. On university campuses Is-
rael's supporters are intimidated and sometimes
banned as "racists and fascists."
THE WZO task force will coordinate with Is-
rael's Foreign Ministry and major Jewish bodies
t hrouirhout the world to fmht on an ongoing basis
a struggle which is global in scope and fateful in
importance. Reactions from Israel's political
leaders has been enthusiastic. Prime Minister
Menachem Begin has expressed aprproval, while
Labor leader Shimon Peres in praising this new
effort pointed out that "only through initiative,
resolve snd publicity can we convince world pub-
lic opinion of the justice of our cause."
To be sure anti-Zionism embodies the deepest
dangers. It paves the way for a new anti-
Semitism, painting anti-Semitic stereo-types in
all fields of society. It undermines the legitimacy
of Israel itself and by suggesting that its moral
foundation is rotten questions the need for its
existence. And most important, it is a tool of the
Soviet Union and its Third World allies in their
struggle against the Western Democracies. In
this sense anti-Zionism fulfills the same role as
anti-Semitism in Germany during the 1930's.
Taking up this sinister challenge is of vital im-
portance for Jewish people everywhere but it also
has fundamental implications for all Western so-
Behind the scene efforts con-
tinued here by members of the
Security Council to formulate a
draft resolution that would be
palatable, or at least acceptable,
to both Syria and the United
States, on the issue of Israel's
annexation of the Golan Heights.
The latest effort is a working
paper initiated by Zsire, a mem-
ber of the Council, which calls on
all countries to refrain from acts
helping Israel in its annexation at
the Golan. Zaire, which re-
portedly opposes the Syrian de-
mand for mandatory sanctions
against Israel, also urges mem-
ber-states in its working paper
"to consider applying effective
and concrete measures," to force
Israel to abrogate its annexation.
MEANWHILE, Arab League
members at the UN were sched-
uled to meet here to formulate a
united stand on a resolution con-
cerning the Golan annexation.
The Security Council has been
hearing various speakers de-
nouncing Israel and calling for
action against it.
Ambassador Gaafar Allagany
of Saudi Arabia told the Council
that it must impose sanctions
against Israel, including manda-
tory economic sanctions. He
warned that Israel's annexation
of the Golan poses serious dan-
gers for peace in the Mideast.

On This and That
Sometimes my heart breaks,
being a Jew. We live in luxuriant
Palm Beach County. We enjoy
one of the highest standards of
living in the world. We have total
freedom to be Jewish to the ful-
lest extent of our desires. And,
sadly, we take this all for
I include myself in this indict-
ment. As much as I am person-
ally involved in Jewish causes,
including Soviet Jewry, the harsh
realities of Jewish existence
throughout the world become
softened by the gentle swaying of
the palm trees that I can contem-
plate while sitting on my patio.
I wear a bracelet with the name
of Vladimir Slepak on my wrist.
Slepak is a Prisoner of Zion in a
labor camp five thousand miles to
the east of Moscow. His only
crime is being a committed Jew
who agitated to emigrate to
Israel. As my bracelet inadver-
tently bangs against the desk or
otherwise intrudes upon my daily
routine, I am drawn back to the
life of fellow Jews in need. And
yet, being human, I continue to
be insensitive to the plight of
Vladimir Slepak and other Jews
who daily depend upon the Jew-
ish community for their salva-
tion. We are human and we tend
to lead our own lives and to get
tired of agitating and expending
energy on behalf of others.
The other day, the following
article on Anatoly Shcharansky
appeared in the New York Times.
Graphically it brought me back
to reality and once again taught
me the lesson of how Jews suffer
solely because they are Jews.
Shcharansky's only crime is
being a committed Jew in the So-
viet Union. Rather than allowing
him to make Aliyah to Israel,
they arrested him on spurious

MOSCOW. Jan. 7 Anatoly
B. Shcharansky, the convicted
dissident, has bean sent back
from labor camp to prison lor
three years for refusing to ac-
knowledge his guilt, his mother
reported today after returning
from her first visit with her son in
16 months.
Before his transfer, Ida Mil-
grom said, her son spent almost
half his time at the labor camp in
a punishment cell on meager food
rations. When he finally col-
lapsed from hunger, she said, he
was hospitalized for 33 days.
Mrs. Milgrom, a small, frail
woman with white hair, described
a harrowing trip of canceled
flights, delayed trains and a five-
mile walk along a frozen stream
with her other son, Leonid, to
reach the Chistopol Prison on the
Volga River, 500 miles east of
Moscow, to spend two hours last
Monday talking to Mr. Shchar-
ansky through a glass partition.
Mrs. Milgrom said her 33-year-
old son arrived at the rendezvous
thin and pale, wearing a padded
jacket and knit hat. "When he
saw us he lifted his arm and
smiled," she said. "I saw the
smile of my son."
Accompanied by Guards
The prisoner was accompanied
by two guards, while Mrs. Mil-
grom and Leonid Shcharansky
were escorted by an official who
monitored the conversation to
insure that it did not stray
beyond the purely personal
subjects permitted visitors.
Mrs. Milgrom said that in late
October, soon altar Mr. Shchar-
ansky was released from the hos-
pital, he was wp*""^ before a
three-man panel that charged
him with "continuing to consider
himself not guilty." He was sen-
tenced to three years in prison,
where conditions are considered
considerably more sUingar* than
at labor camps, and on Nov. 4 he
was transferred to Chistopol.
During his initial three years in
prison, Mrs. Milgrom said, Mr.
Shcharansky suffered from
severe headaches and painful eye
disorders, and these were appar-
ently returning.
Mrs. Milgrom said her son
gsve a harrowing account of his
time at the labor camp. She said
he was repeatedly accused of
trivial violations or provoked into
punishable actions and sent to
the punishment cell, where pris-
oners are fed only once every two
days and then the lowest permis-
sible ration, which includes no
meaf 185 Days in
Punishment Cell
"Each time it was a different
provocation," she said. "One
time he lit Hanukkah candles.
Another time he was ordered to
work in a 'forbidden zone,' where
political prisoners have tradition-
ally refused to work. Then
another time he was assigned a
latrine job which carries extra
rations, only to learn that an old
sick man had been kicked off the
job. Of course he refused to do
In all, Mrs. Milgrom said, Mr.
Shcharansky spent 186 days in
1981 in the punishment cell, with
76 days in one stretch. Finally,
she said, he collapsed and
fainted. Several days later he was
hospitalized and spent 33 days
regaining his strength.
"They used the hospital to
revive him so they can again tor-
ture him," she said. "From the
hospital he was soon back in the
punishment cell, and a month
later he was shipped back to
Mrs. Milgrom said she failed to
notice the time passing during
the conversation and was aghast
when her escort said only five
minutes remained. Her voice
breaking with emotion, she re-
called those last moments: "I
lost control and wept; I couldn't
think of what to say. I said to
him, 'Show me your face,' it may
be the last time I see him. He
took off his hat, his scarf, smiled.
You look better, mamochka,' ha
said. I said we'd come back, but
he said, 'Don't build your hopes,
there may not be another
'Harassment la
In a statement handed to
Western reporters, Mrs. Milgrom
said: "The victimization of my
son continues and the harass-
ment is intensifying. There can
be-no doubt that the persistent
lawlessness and victimization are
intended to break him physically
and morally. If the present situa-
tion continues, it will surely bring
on the total physical dastruc
of a sick man."
Mr. Shcharansky was
victed in 1978 of treason,
Soviet activities and spying
the United States, charges b
he and Washington rejected,
wss sentenced to three years]
prison, retroactive to his arres
1977, and 10 years at hard 1
camps. Hs was transferred

Mountains in April 1960.
