Beginning on July 15, a new
Kahlii will assume the pulpit at
B'nai Torah. Rabbi Theodore

Rabbi Feldman attended Roose-
velt University in Chicago where

chology. Following his college
education, he attended the Jew-
ish Theological Seminary, from

he has been involved in many
facets of community and organi-
zational life. He is immediate

Senators Swamped
By Hate Writing
young Senate aide picks up
a nondescript package
which had just been de-
livered by mail. The plain
brown wrapper bears no re-
turn address; the postage
stamps are from Pakistan.
He removes the wrapper,
revealing two books, one
titled Anti-Zion, by
William Grimstad, the
other an anonymous vol-
ume, The Six Million Re-
considered. There is no
covering letter.
This scene was repeated all
over the United States last
January when district offices of
members of the U.S. Senate mys-
teriously received the two
volumes, all in packages
dispatched from Pakistan.
THE SENATORS' aides easily
identified the unsolicited materi-
als as anti-Semitic hate mail.
Anti-Zion is a compendium of
anti-Jewish writings put together
by Grimstad, an American neo-
Nazi and Ku Klux Klan propa-
gandist. The Six Million Recon-
sidered is dedicated to the propo-
sition that the Nazi Holocaust

ings and traced them to a
Pakistan-based international
Muslim organization, the World
Muslim Congress, which receives
funding from and is closely iden-
tified with Saudi Arabia's ruling
establishment. The same organi-
zation was identified in 1981 as
the source of a similar mailing
last summer to members of the
British Parliament.

provided through the Saudi-
founded World Muslim League.
Based in the holy city of Mecca,
the World Muslim League was
created in 1962 through a Saudi
Government grant as a principal
instrument of its policy to put all
Islamic institutions-including
those outside the country
under its own auspices. In addi-
tion to the World Muslim Con-
gress, the World Muslim League

centers, mosques, universities,
associations and similar institu-
tions outside Saudi Arabia.

did more than raise the question
of a Saudi responsibility, how-
ever indirect, for the dissemina-
tion of hate material. It also cast
doubt on the propriety of such
activity by an advisory group to
the United Nations. The World
Muslim Congress is accredited to
the United Nations, where it en-

Leadership Award
In reporting the awarding of
the James and Margie Baer
Young Leadership Award to
Margaret Kottler in the last edi-
tion of the Floridian, the article
indicated that the Fund was ini-
tiated by friends of James and
Marjorie Baer in their honor.
More correctly, the article
should have reported that the
Fund was established by their
parents, Melvin and Lucille Baer,
their brothers and sisters Robert
and Aviva Baer and Allan and
Terry Baer.
The Fund is a public fund and
accepts continuing contributions
by friends. It's purpose is to an-
nually recognize the outstanding
young Jewish Leader in South
County and to subsidize that per-
son's attendance at the Council of
Jewish Federation's General As-
sembly, the national conference
of Jewish communal lay leaders.
Arabia, coming from leading
opinion molders within the Saudi
A Saudi Arabian newspaper
Al-Nadwu. for example, quoted
ihe following statement about
Jews made by an official of Muh-
ammad Ibn Saud University last
July: "Their vices and corrupt
ways were noted as far back as
the Koran." The official, Marwan
Muhammad Ali, went on to
castigate Jews for ten alleged
negative characteristics, among
them: "arrogance," "hard-
hearted cruelty," "discrimination
and exploitation,' warmonger-
ing," "miserliness and envy.''
Saudi newspaper, Al-Jazira,
alleged that "The Jewish religion
is nothing but a collection of
criminal racist principles, sowing
cruelty, blood-lust and killing in
those who believe in it."
Consistent with these kinds of
anti-Jewish sentiments is a state-
ment made by the president of
the World Muslim Congress
some years ago. According to
Dawalibi: "The Arabs would
prefer a thousandfold to become a
Soviet republic than a prey to
world Jewry."
The World Muslim Congress is
based in Karachi, Pakistan,
where it was founded in 1949. For
the first two decades of its
existence, it was led by the late
Hajj Muhammad Am in al-Hus-
seini, Mufti of Jerusalem and the
leader of Arab terrorists who
raided Jewish settlements in Pal-
estine in the 1930's. During
World War II, in broadcasts
beamed to the Middle East from
Berlin, where he then lived, he
urged Arabs to join the Axis
powers. He was also instrumental
in organizing a Yugoslav Muslim
SS division which fought along-
side the Germans.
FOLLOWING al-Husseini's
death in 1974, the World Muslim
Congress presidency was taken
over by his associate, al-Dawa-
libi, a former prime minister of

demise in that country in the
mid-Sixties, moved to Saudi
Arabia and became an official ad-

Filling in Background
U.S. Awaits Word from Beirut to Come In
(JTA) The United States
will be sending up to 1,000
troops to Lebanon to help
in the evacuation of the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization and to ensure
the establishment of a
strong central government
in that country.
The offer, first revealed by
Israel Kadio, was confirmed by
deputy White House press secre-
tary Larry Speakes in Los
Angeles where President Reagan
had been vacationing. But
Speakes added that a request
must be made from the Lebanese
government for U.S. troops
before they would be sent.
PRESIDENT Reagan has
already deployed a battalion of
some 800 U.S. troops joined with
participation by ships of the U.S.
Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean
to help in the evacuation of the
estimated 6,000 Palestine terror-
ists who remain entrenched in
West Beirut.
While there has been discus-
sion that the proposed agreement
would involve the Marines,
White House officials in Califor-
nia said personnel from other
military branches could not be
ruled out. But White House offic-
ials said any presence of
American military personnel
"would be limited in size and

mayors and state legislators,
Reagan confirmed U.S. willing-
ness to help in the evacuation of
Palestinians from Beirut. While

Part in Escorting PLO Out
French troops will probably
take an active part in as-
sisting the Palestinian
evacuation of Beirut,
French sources said here. A
French task force might
join American marines who
will supervise the Palestin-
ian withdrawal from west
Beirut and ensure their safe
departure from Lebanon.
Foreign Minister Claude Che.\
sson said that no agreement has
been reached yet and termed
these reports "premature." Other
officials, who did not want to be
named, said, however, that the
talks on French participation in
the Palestinian evacuation are

French National Assembly, that

Chief Yasir Arafat in Beirut and
meetings with Israeli, Syrian.
Jordanian and Saudi Arabian
in Beirut denied this evening that
the PLO has agreed to the evacu-
ation and to the stationing of
American troops in Beirut.
Reagan said there has yet to be a
formal request from the Lebanese
government, he added that he
has "agreed in principle to con-
tribute a small number of U.S.
personnel, subject to certain
conditions." He did not say what
those conditions were.
AT THE State Department,
spokesman Dean Fischer refused
to comment on the troops offer,
referring all questioners to the
Speakes briefing.
Meanwhile, Fischer revealed
that Secretary of State Alexand-
er Haig, who had been involved
in the Mideast negotiations dur-
ing his weekend vacation in West
Virginia has ended that involve-
ment. Fischer said that Haig,
Reagan and Secretary of State-
designate George Shultz have
agreed that until Shultz is con-
firmed by the Senate and sworn
in, Deputy-Secretary Walter
Stoessel will serve as acting
Secretary of State.
However, Haig will have a
transitional office in the State
Department for 45-60 days,
Fischer said, although he did not
know if the Secretary would use
the office personally. He said it
would be staffed by Haig's aides,
including Sherwood Goldberg,
his executive assistant, and
Muriel Hartley, an assistant to
the Secretary. Reporters noted
that when Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance resigned in the
Carter Administration, he left the
Department the next day and
had no such office.

everything possible to help en-

urging Israel to lift its blockade
of west Beirut. "We have a deep
concern about the human dimen-
sions of the conflict," he said. He
said, adding that the Department
has been restored to west Beirut
although not electric power.
Fischer stressed that though
seeking to maintain the ceasefire
and trying to bring about a
peaceful solution to the conflict,
"we are trying to prevent actions
that endanger the lives or welfare
of innocent civilians." He noted
that Peter McPherson, Adminis-
trator of the Agency for Interna-
tional'Development, is coordinal-
ing the U.S. relief assistance to
Lebanon in cooperation with in-
ternational efforts.
Fischer also noted that the
U.S. voted for the UN Security
Council resolution which was
aimed at the protection of the
civilian population in Lebanon
and the restoration of all services.
In concluding, Fisher stressed
that the U.S. urges "all parties in
the conflict to respect the rights
of all civilians.

Israel Feels 'Optimistic'
Now That U.S. Will
Contribute Troops
The optimism generated
here by President Reagan's
agreement in principle to
"contribute a small contin-
gent" of American troops
to assist in the withdrawal
of Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization forces from west
Beirut was not dissipated
by the resurfacing of obsta-
cles still holding up a final
Israel's Cabinet held a long
session in the morning, and
ministers emerged saying they
were hopeful of a peaceable solu-
tion to the problem of the be-
leaguered PLO forces trapped by
the Israel Defense Force in west
Beirut. There was no substantive
official statement issued and a
lop Israeli aide. Foreign Ministry
i Director General David Kimche,
was reported to have gone to
Beirut to report to U.S. envoy
Philip Habib on the Israeli Cabi-
net stance.
AS REPORTED earlier in the
week, the two obstacles that still
seem to impede a settlement are:
the PLO's demand that it keep a
political office in Beirut, and the
PLO's demand that two small
Palestinian army units stay in
Lebanon, in the areas under
Syrian control, and withdraw
only at a later stage, together
with the Syrian and IDF forces.
The Prime Minister's spokes-
man. Uri Porat, reiterated the
Cabinet's Sunday decision reject-
ing both of these demands.
Nevertheless observers here con-
tinue to believe that if these are
the sole remaining problems to be
resolved, solutions will somehow

against sending American

affect Reagan's offer of a
contingent of U.S. Marines
. to help Palestine Liberation
I Organization forces evacu-
ate west Beirut, State De-
partment spokesman Dean
Fischer said.
Fischer confirmed that Reagan
received Brezhnev's letter which
he said Soviet Ambassador
Anatoly Dobrynin gave acting
Secretary of State Walter
Stoessel at the State Depart-
ment. Fischer refused to provide
any details of the letter or to say
what the U.S. response would be,
except that it would not affect
ihe offer of American troops.
that the Foreign Ministers of
Syria and Saudi Arabia are com-
ing to Washington but no date
has been set for their visit. He
said they are being sent by the
Arab League and that the Ad-
ministration and the ministers
are trying to find a "mutually
convenient early date" for them
to come here, in other matters,
Fischer said the U.S. is in daily
contact with Israel on the
humanitarian aspects of the
situation in Lebanon. He said the
U.S. was "pleased" to note that
central services such as elec-
tricity and water have been re-
stored to west Beirut.
Fischer had no comment on the
closing down of Bir Zeit Univer-
sity on the West Bank by the Is-
raeli military authorities today.
But he said the ouster of the
Mayor of the West Bank town of
Jenin by the Israelis this week
"was regrettable." He observed,
"The (municipal) elections in
197b represented the only recent
expression of the popular will on
the West Bank."
Committee that their party
would not support IDF military
action against west Beirut if
these two PLO demands were the
only remaining obstacles and the
main body of the PLO agreed to
leave the city without a fight.
ONE IDEA that has been
aired during the week was for the
PLO to set up its desired political
office in the north Lebanon town
of Tripoli, thus remaining on
Lebanese soil but not in the much
more sensitive spot, Beirut.
The situation of another prob-
lematic issue the PLO's de-
mand for a partial IDF pullback
from Beirut in the first stage
was not known. Israel has said it
will not pull back until the PLO
withdrawal from Beirut has been

conceal their reluctance to ap-
prove a direct French role in the
proposed Beirut withdrawal.
Jerusalem has been deeply disap-
pointed by Paris' stand during
the war in Lebanon, and its ef-
forts to save the PLO.
But the Israeli officials recog-
nize that the U.S is extremely re-
luctant to send its troops into
Beirut without a broader "mul-
tinational" framework. Since
France, with its own strong and
traditional interests in Lebanon
is apparently eager to play a role,
Washington plans on a French
batallion alongside the U.S.
forces, giving the venture its
"multinational" character.
^ Israel Radio reported after a
Cabinet meeting that the French
are seeking a UN aegis for their
proposed role in Beirut. This no
doubt would make Israel even
more dubious about the French
Meanwhile, it has become clear
that the exiting PLO men would
head firstly to Syria to the
port of Latakia if they are taken
off by ship and from there
would presumably spread out
among the Arab states. Israeli
officials note wryly that most
Arab states have expressed out-
right reluctance to receive the
ousted PLO men.

Clark's the Man
To Watch Now
An editorial in the Suddeutsche Zeitung pub-
lished in Munich makes some excellent points about
the "resignation" of Secretary of State Alexander
The editorial reasons that Haig's resignation is
not capricious; it is a resignation in the face of a
difficult balancing act." presumably President
Reagan's top-sider Edwin Meese and Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger.
But the Suddeutsche Zeitung is less concerned
about these well-known speculations than what the
arrival of Shultz on the Administration scene will
mean. It is, for example, a fact that Shultz is not a
foreign policy expert. His field, if he has any at all, is
economics. Our own view is that Shultz would surely
not be president of the mult i-billion dollar annual
gross business Bechtel Corp. were this not so.
And so, the Suddeutsche Zeitung concludes:
"He (Shultz) is facing a security adviser who has the
President's absolute trust and who was able to put a
damper on Weinberger first and then push Haig out
of office."
The upshot of all of this is that "Washington's
new strongman is William P. Clark who, until
recently, did not know the name of South Africa's
Prime Minister, but who is able to articulate the
demand of America's conservatives for the
reconquest of supremacy."
Ergo: More than Shultz, the man to watch is
Clark, the Weinberger-Haig stopper. Ominous
though that sounds, we agree with the seers of
A Trip to Israel Now
One hopes that the war in Lebanon may be
winding down. Even now, the end appears in sight.
But at no time during the fighting, was there any
reason for tourists to Israel to change their vacation
plans and not come.
It is true that longshoremen at the Piraeus in
Athens have declared a boycott of Israeli ships. The
Athenian port city, with its close proximity to Israel,
therefore poses tourist problems for vacationers
bound for the Holy Land.
There have been other minor problems as well,
including Israeli charter ship operators of tours and
cruises emanating from Greece.
Apart from this, the fact is that within Israel, all
is calm and tranquil and vibrant. Visitors from all
over the world arriving in Israel for the summer are
finding a country that is peaceful and hospitable.
Only last week, rabbis throughout the United
States devoted their Sabbath sermons to the theme
of "Israel, Right Now," with worshippers being
asked to visit Israel this summer, not only as a
vacation, but also to demonstrate their unity with
and support for the people of Israel.
Whether you heard one of these sermons or not,
the message is clear. A trip to Israel now is no dif-
ferent from before. With one exception, it is always
informative, fun and a means of identifying yourself
with your ancient Jewish heritage.
The exception is that, this summer, you are
telling the enemies of Israel that you are a part of
Israel and that nothing can intimidate you away
from showing this solidarity.
World Jewish Congress President Edgar M.
Bronfman calls for prevention of nuclear
holocaust in remarks to a Special Session on
Disarmament on June 25 at the United
Nations. In his speech, marking the first
time an international Jewish organization
addressed the General Assembly, Bronfman
told the assembled delegates that the charge
that Zionism is racism is an abomination.
Jacobson Reports Emigration's Decline
Charlotte Jacobson, chairman of the Soviet
Jewry Research Bureau of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, says that only 182 Jews
arrived in Vienna, with Israeli visas, from the So-
viet Union during June. This figure, Jacobson re-
ports, is a 96 percent fall from the nearly 4,500
Jews who received exit visas in June, 1979, a peak
year for Jewish emigration, and represents the
sharpest decline since effective emigration began
in 1971.
"The situation for Soviet Jewry is desperate."
Jacobson says. "Every refusenik is under seige as
the Soviet authorities wage a calculated cam-
paign to smother Jewish emigration an activ-

Following careful evaluation of the emigration
statistics for the first half of this year, Jacobson
implored U.S. officials to "place the Soviet Jew-
ish issue high atop its agenda in future negotia-
tions with the Soviet Union."
It is 47 years since Menachem Begin s gradua-

recent visit to New York, he got a souvenir of it.
Last year in Jerusalem, he asked a favor of Jerzy
Kuberski. then-Poland's Minister of Religious
Affairs: Could he get a copy of Begin's academic
transcript? Kuberski promised to try. Kuberski
several weeks ago entrusted the transcript to
Rabbi Philip Hiat of the Union of American He-
brew Congregations, who was visiting Poland in
connection with the UAHC's cultural exchange
program with Polish institutions.
When Rabbi Hiat returned to New York, he de-
livered the transcript to his boss, Rabbi Alex-
ander M. Schindler. a close friend of Begin's. In a
private meeting. Rabbi Schindler surprised the
Prime Minister by handing over the transcript.
Reform Rabbis have deferred for further study
a statement that would have accepted the chil-
dren of a mixed marriage as Jewish if either the
father or mother is a Jew.
At their 93rd annual meeting in New York,
members of the Central Conference of American
Rabbis debated this statement for three hours,
which resulted from a two-year study by their
Committee on Patrilineal Descent, chaired by the
Central Conference of American Rabbis Presi-
dent. Rabbi Herman E. Schaalman of Chicago.
The Patrilineal statement that was presented
for action said. "Where only one of the parents is
Jewish, the Jewishness of a child is derivable
from the Jewish parent, and is expressed by par-
ticipation in Jewish life."

Letters to the Editor
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I have just returned from a trip
to Israel where I spent some time
in the Golan Heights area. Being
there your skin crawls with the
fear of the closeness of the hostile
borders. Almost every street in
the area's Kibbutzim has its own
underground shelter. There is
clanger present every minute.
Terrorist attacks continue,
bombs have been lobbed across
the border. Since the 1981 cease-
fire, there have been numerous
incursions and people have been
maimed and killed. The forces
that were to keep the area neu-
tralized were completely ineffec-
Israel has repeatedly said it
wants not an inch of Lebanese
land. The only requirement that
Israel asks is security security
so this tiny country can delegate
all it's efforts in making life more
tenable, instead of spending so
much of it's gross national
product on war material.
In the 1930's and early 1940's
we fought a war against Hitler,
who proclaimed in "Mein
K.i nip I" that he would establish
the "Perfect Race" by ridding the
world of its racial pollution,
namely the Jews. He set up his
gas chambers and proceeded with
Ins genocide, while the world
looked on. It was almost too late
before the world realized that
Hitler meant what he said. We
were left with no alternative,
either we must destroy Hitler and
his ideology forever, or be
destroyed ourselves.
Today we are once again in a
similar position. His name now is
Arafat. In his writings and in his
speeches he states categorically
that the Jews must be exter-
minated-yes-they must be driven
into the sea, this instead of the
gas chambers. But death is death
by whatever means.
Israel cannot exist with this
cancer at its borders. Even the

Arab countries know that Arafat
is a threat to their own viability.
Jordan fought a "war" against
Arafat and his terrorists forcing
them to flee into Syria. The Syr-
ians forced them to retreat into
Lebanon, where the government
was so weak and fragmented that
it could not stem the flow of
Arafat's terrorists. Today Arafat
has established his state within
the state of Lebanon. He has
built up a tremendous cache of
arms, and has established a
training ground for terrorists
from all over the world.
Israel over the years has
warned the world time and time
again that it has no alternative.
Arafat and his terrorists must be
once and for all completely
destroyed or Israel will die.
Israel is a viable and legitimate
state, recognized by all the coun-
tries of the world except for the
few Arab states. It should be in-
cumbent upon the United Na-
tions to establish a "safe border"
on all sides of Israel.
Israel needs its manpower to
help make life better in its own
country. It doesn't want to, and
cannot afford to be, on a conti-
nuous war economy. It wants to
live and grow in peace with its
neighbors. What other country,
when forced into war, has re-
turned to the defeated, so much
of the spoils of victory? Israel has
shown the world, not by words
but by deeds, that it wants only
peace, a peace only obtainable
with secure borders.
Time is running out. Instead of
backing away from our obliga-
tions, let us stand fast and iden-
tify the enemy. Eradicate the
cancer before it is too late.

NEW YORK. NY, June 24-
Jerry Wolf, 24, formerly of
Hollywood, Florida, was killed in
action on June 9 while serving
with the Israel Defense Forces in
Wolf made aliyah to Israel in
197K. According to a close friend,
Sumner Kaye, Executive Direc-
tor of the Jewish Federation of
South Broward, Florida, Wolf
first visited Israel when he was a
"After that, he never stopped
talking about living in Israel,"
Kaye said. "He would talk about
having a sense of Jewish purpose,
of tilling the soil. Unlike many
Americans who choose to live in
Israel's cities, Jerry chose life on
an agricultural moshav."
The American-born Israeli
made his home in Mashav Neir-
bonim, near the Mediterranean
port city of Ashdod, where he es-
tablished deep ties to the land as
a farmer, and also developed a
close freindship with a sabra his
own age, Shochar Guy.
Together, they entered milita-
ry service for a three year tour of
duty which they were to have
completed in August, 1982. Sho-
char Guy was killed in battle on
Tuesday, June8.
Shane and Bob Wolf, Jerry's
parents, had visited Israel sever-
al times on United Jewish Appeal
missions and knew Shochar Guy
well. They were mourning for
their son's best friend when they
were informed the next day of
Jerry's death.
Wolf's parents, his 22-year-old
brother. Jay. and 19-year-old sis-
ter, Dara, flew to Israel June 12
for funeral services. Wolf and his
friend were buried at Moshav
Neirbonim^JBfChe earth they had
worked astarmers.
The South Broward Jewish
community was in shock on hear-
ing the news of Wolf's death.
Many local families have visited
Israel, and the young man's
parents iflffe long been active in
annual UJA-Community cam-
paigns. "Jerry's death, like the
deaths of all the young men,
.crikes at our heart," one family
friend said in expressing the
community's reaction.
The Wolf family has requested
that expressions of sympathy be
in the form of donations to the
United Jewish Appeal.

Mica, Chiles Support Israel's Action In Lebanon

Two prominent Florida mem-
bers of Congress, Congressman
Dan Mica and Senator Law ton
Chiles, have come forward with
statements in support of Israel's
actions during the present crisis.
Congressman Dan Mica re-
cently spoke on the floor of the
House of Representatives in
Washington, D.C. regarding the
present situation in the Middle
East. Mica expressed his feelings
concerning the developments in
that part of the world, adding his
hope for a resolution of the crisis.
He reminded his colleagues of the
events that led Israel to take the
actions she has taken, and urged
both his colleagues and the U.S.
to assume a patient and
diplomatic posture. It is his
opinion that premature judge-
ments regarding the current
crisis may only harm the delicate
task of restoring peace in the
Middle East.
Senator Lawton Chiles, in a re-
cent letter to President Reagan,
expressed deep concern over the
current situation in Lebanon. The
letter was also signed by thirteen
U.S. Senators who share Senator
Chiles' views on this issue.
Senator Chiles discussed the
source of Lebanon's instability
since 1976. referring to its Civil
over Lebanon or to terrorize Is-
Both Congressman Mica's and
Senator Chiles' statements give
evidence to the fact that there are
some legislators who do under-
stand the full scope of the Middle
East situation. Some do care
enough to gather the facts prior
to making any determinations, as
opposed to the many legislators
who give credence to the distor-
tions of truth perpetuated by the
Congressman Mica
War of 1975-1976. He stressed
that this country has been the
victim of PLO and Syrian mili-
tary occupation since that time
and that the situation can only
continue to undermine our long-
term interests in promoting
stability in the Middle East.
The Senator stated that a solu-
tion to this crisis must include a
withdrawal of all foreign military
Senator Chiles
forces from Lebanon, a restora-
tion of unity and full indepen-
dence for that country, and the
removal of the PLO's ability to
conduct military and terrorist
activities against Israel. Ameri-
can diplomatic initiatives were
strongly supported in the re-es-
tablishment of sovereignty of the
central government of Lebanon,
as well as in dismantling the
PLO's ability to exercise control

Project Renewal Redisidents Moblize For Peace
Project Renewal neighbor-
hoods in Israel are pockets of
poverty primarily inhabited by
Jewish immigrants from North
Africa and Middle East Arab
When "Operation Peace For
Galilee" emptied Project Re-
newal neighborhoods in Israel of
the men serving as project
managers and professional staff,
those neighborhoods remained
full. Full of giving.
The women, children and
elderly men left behind mainly
immigrants from North Africa,
Asia and the Middle East who
had only recently been initiated
into the rites of democratic
process through Renewal pro-
grams and services spontane-
ously mobilized one of the most
impressive and warmly human
crisis-support actions in Israels
civilian history.
Even with their manpower
gone to war, the residents of Re-
newal neighborhoods, linked to
American Jewish communities
through United Jewish Appeal-
Federation Campaigns, had a
structure for community action.
Even without their established
leaders present, they could
mobilize for giving. Throughout
the intensive early days of the
action in Lebanon, they assumed
responsibility, asserted leader-
ship, and effectively applied
organizational and managerial
skills only recently acquired.
In Afula, within a matter of
hours, women and children from
the Renewal neighborhood filled
trucks to the brim with packages
they collected from soldiers'
families. The trucks were speeded
northwardfull of cigarettes,
candy, changes of socks and hur-
riedly written notes wishing for
the men's safety, peace for all,
life. This set a pattern for dozens
of Project Renewal neighbor-
hoods. Youngsters began collect-
ing bundles and letters, con-
tinuously bringing them to cen-
tral points, loading them onto
waiting trucks and sending them
off "special delivery to the front
In Nahariya. where outlying
factories suffered millions of dol-
lars worth of damage from shell-
ing immediately preceding Is-
rael's move into Lebanon, the
Project Renewal office was
quickly turned into a public
kitchen by Renewal volunteers.
According to an eyewitness ob-
server, "you literally have to
clamber over cheese and sardine
tins to get in to what has become
a major food distribution center
for soldiers en route to the front."
Youngsters from Hatzor's Re-
newal neighborhood set up a
roadside stand to serve coffee,
soft drinks, sandwiches and
cakes to the long convoys pass-
ing by. One high school student
was on duty when an older
brother he had not heard from for
a week stopped there, by pure
chance, for a cud of coffee. The
soldier's brother continued on to
the frontto do his duty. The
younger boy remained at his
roadside postto do his.
Renewal volunteers from Haifa
met soldiers in a much more
painful context. They went to
Ramban Hospital to visit the
wounded. The battle scarred pa-
tients were not their own hus-
bands, fathers, sons; they were
simply family, that larger family
that is all Israel. The visitors
came to show they cared, to offer
to do anything the families
needed: babysitting, shopping,
cooking, cleaning.
Not far from Ramban Hos-
pital, residents of Tirat Ha-
Carmel organized a concert in
their Project Renewal community
center. Performers donated their
time and talent; all proceeds
went to the Soldiers' Fund.
Beit She'an. itself repeatedly a
target of terrorist attacks and
shelling, was overwhelmed with
donations from neighboring Re-
newal areas. Among the gifts
were two television sets, costly
and highly prized in Israel.
In Netanya, members of the
Project Renewal neighborhood
committee stationed themselves
at the entrances to grocery
stores. As each person arrived
they asked for a cash donation.
No one refused. Every person
gave cash on the spot.

Aviv, one of the most crowded
and long suffering of the Renewal
neighborhoods, the Project Re-
newal neighborhood committee
set an example by donating
10,000 shekels (about $450) and
soon raised an additional 20,000
shekels (about $1.000).
At Amishav in Peta Tikva, 50
women who were themselves be-
ing helped by Renewal, learning
to read and write in the special
"Tehila" program, discovered
they too could give. They baked
cakes, sold them, and turned the
money over to the peace effort.
At Or Yehuda, children walked
from door to door, reaching out to
every family. They asked for
books, games, sweets, art sup-
pliesanything to calm children
their own age and keep them
busy. Then, taking nothing for
themselves, they personally de-
livered the gifts to the children of
the town of Shlomi, shelled by
And in Tel Mond, where 70
percent of the people in the Re-
newal neighborhood are without
telephones, a volunteer message
center was immediately set up
and continues to be manned 24
hours a day. When word comes
from a soldier for his family, a
runner goes to his apartment and
knocks on the door. "Your son
Raffi called. He is safe and well."
"Your husband Abraham sends
his love to you and the children."
And even, in a lighter vein:
"Take care of the little puppy.
Remember to feed him."
In essence, Project Renewal
has become the address for giv-
ing in Israel during this current
crisis. As an outstanding exam-
ple, one elderly woman brought
her whole month's pension check
into the Renewal office in Or
Akiva. "All I ask," she said, "is
that you give it to the navy."
Sharply tested under crisis
conditions, the 350,000 people of
Israels Project Renewal neigh-
borhoods are emerging with greai
dignity and a heightened sense o
their own value and capacity u
give. They are making one great
leap that has always been the
basic human goal of Renewal:
they are vigorously and effective-
ly entering the mainstream of Is-
raeli life.

ed with refugees from the south
who find shelter whereever they
can. The citizenry has armed

machine guns; whenever, they
venture on the street, they rou-
finely carry their weapons.
THE DANGER, according to
Mike, come not so much from the
encircling Israelis as trom the
arious Lebanese Moslem and
Christian factions and trom the
Palestinians. The Lebanese are
ambivalent about the Israelis:
they dislike the Palestinians for

ful, ones prosperous country
since their arrival in Lebanon
alter having been expelled from
Jordan by King Hussein in 1970.
Before bombing the southern
Lebanese cily ol Sidon, the
Israelis dropped leaflets telling
the populace to gather on the
beaches to escape the bombing.
The Lebanese appreciated that
ire. They believe Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin

wants a stable government in
Lebanon; so do the Lebanese.

as if they were a law unto them-
selves, he continues. "They walk

this," he demonstrates, sitting
up ramrod-straight in his seat
and moving his shoulders
haughtily from side to side.
Where are their women and chil-
dren? "Oh. they are with them,
just as bad."
In fact, Mike is friendly with
some Palestinian teens who at-
tend his school. Every Saturday,
they must report to a paramilita-
ry camp outside Beirut for riflery

them for the day. Their instruc-
tors are Russians or Russian-

Soviet-made. ......
How Thousands of PLO
Fighters Have Suddenly
"The Palestinians hate the
Jews," Mike says "The worst in-
sult you can say to a Palestinian
is t hat he is like a Jew. an Israeli.
One ol our teachers. an
American, told a class of boys,
becauss they were being noisy,
that they were acting like a
bunch of Israelis. The next day,
he got a warning from the Pales-
tinians that he'd better leave the
country quickly.
"The Palestinians are very
cruel to the Israeli soldiers they
capture." Mike continues. They
torture the soldiers, which
bothers Mike. "On Beirut televi-
sion, they showed an Israeli pilot
and his face was all bloody. They
showed an Israeli soldier, his
body half in and half out of a car
trunk, with a Palestiniar sitting
on the trunk. The announcer said
the soldier was alive when they
did this."
BUT THE Palestinians are
"very weak now," Mike adds.
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion leader Yasir Arafat is
thought to be in hiding some-
where in Beirut, after having
escaped from the PLO headquar-
ters via a series of underground
tunnels. The Lebanese hope the
Palestinians will all pick up and
move to Syria. "Only Syria, with
its strong army, may be able to
control them," he muses.
Where are all the Palestinian
guerrillas captured by the Israeli
troops'.' Ask Israeli soldiers you
happen to meet. Ask Israeli offic-
ials you corner. The answer is the
same: they shrug, they don't
know. Presumably, thousands of
PLO fighters have disappeared
into thin air.

So has her husband, an equally
spry grandlather. In fact, their

jaunt up to Metulla, the north-
ernmost settlement in Israel,

"OH," SHE informs you casu-

loads of them well, five, six

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Friday, July 23,1982
Spotlight On Gerald Lewis Give-Aways Enthrall D.C.
During his first term in office,
Florida Comptroller Gerald
Lewis was instrumental in the
passage of legislation which au-
thorized state-chartered banks
and trust companies to use up to
five percent of capital accounts to
invest or purchase bonds from
the State of Israel. One year ago,
Lewis helped amend Florida's
savings and loan code to allow
those financial institutions to
increase the investment in Israeli
bonds to 10 percent.
Lewis, a member of Temple Is-
rael in Tallahassee, was elected
Florida's 26th Comptroller in No-
vember 1974 and has served as
the state's chief financial officer
since that time.
By virtue of his job as Comp-
troller, Lewis serves as a member
of the Florida Cabinet and is one
of the highest ranking elected of-
ficials in Florida. With the Gov-
ernor sitting as chairman, the
Cabinet acts as an executive
board with responsibility for
managing a number of state
agencies. In addition, the Gov-
ernor and Cabinet serve as the
Hoard of Kxecutive Clemency
which reviews all death sentences
and requests for pardons and re-
ductions in prison sentences. Tht
Governor, Comptroller anc
Treasurer serve as the State
Hoard of Administration
handling the investment ol
certain state funds.
During his two terms as
Comptroller, Lewis has gained
recognition nationally for his ef-
forts to make Florida a well-
known, international financial
center and for his fight against
securities fraud.
The responsibilities sheltered
under the Department of Bank-
ing and Finance which Lewis
heads are extremely crucial to the
state. As Comptroller, Lewis
must account for the state's $14
billion budget each year; ensure
that Florida's state-chartered fi-
nancial institutions are operated
in a safe and sound manner; ad-
minister the Florida Securities
Act, which is designed to protect
investors; regulate consumer fi-
nance companies; and coordinate
the return each year of $5 million
in abandoned money to the right-
ful owners.
Kirkland Issues
Statement on Mid-East
AFL-CK) President Lane
Kirkland today issued the follow-
ing statement on the situation in
the Middle Fast
Israel's military action in Leb-
anon is entirely justified. No
nation is required to suffer daily
terrorist attacks on its popula-
tion without striking back at the
source of those attacks.
Lebanon's national existence
was destroyed years ago by Syria
and the PLO, which together
occupy 60 percent of its land. De-
nunciations of Israel for invading
this territory are pious claptrap.
Terrorists have no right to sanc-
tuary anywhere.
In the absence of effective in-
ternational guarantee that would
protect Israel's northern borders,
and in the face of continuing PLO
terrorism within Israel, that na-
tion has the right to act in de-
fense of its own security. To the
extent Israel has now crippled
the PLO's terrorist capabilities,
it has served the interests of all
the democracies, for all of them
are targets of PLO-linked terror-
In initiating a cease-fire with
Syria which the PLO refuses
to observe Israel has demon-
strated the limited character of
its objectives. It deserves the
sympathetic support, not the
carping and scolding, of the
Keagan Administration.
A Birmingham, Alabama
native, Lewis was educated at
Harvard College where he re-
ceived his bachelor of arts degree
in 1955. Following graduation, he
served two years active duty with
the Army as a paratrooper. He
attained the rank of Captain and
commanded a special forces
Green Beret Unit in the U.S.
Army Reserve and the Florida
National Guard.
After completing his military
service Lewis returned to Har-
vard and earned his law degree.
Lewis moved to Florida in 1960
and practiced law in Miami.
In 1966, Lewis was elected to
the Florida House of Representa-
tives and served there two terms.
In 1970, he was elected to the
Florida Senate.
Lewis serves on the Interna-
tional Law Committee of the
Florida Bar, the Board of Trus-
tees of the Conference of State
Hank Supervisors and the Board
ol Directors of Miami's Down-
town Development Authority.
He is a member of the Dade

Washington has been en-
thralled in recent weeks by
the largesse of the Saudi
Arabians. The Saudis, who
have admitted that they
get more money from their
oil revenues than they
know what to do with, ap-
pear to have targeted this
nation's capital as one of
their favorite charities.
First there was the announce-
ment that Sheikh Mohammed
S.A. al-Fassi had donated
$50,000 for the city's summer job
program. Mayor Marion Barry
was so overwhelmed that he pro-
claimed last May 6 as a day in
honor of the young Saudi and
praised Fassi for his "substantial
contributions toward increasing
understanding and goodwill
among all nations."

rical article, to complain about

Then there is Wolf Trap. The
Washington area was shocked
earlier this year when the Filene
Center where the federal park in
Vienna, Va. held its summer con-
certs burned down just as the
summer season was being
planned. People, businesses and
organizations throughout the
area have been donating funds so
that the center can be rebuilt and

did obtain a modular structure
composed of fabric panels
stretched between aluminum
arches which was being used as a
storage facility in Dubai and will
be used temporarily until a
permanent building is con-
structed. It was the Saudis who
brought the structure to the at-
tention of Wolf Trap, according
to Robert Keith Gray, chairman
of the foundation's board of di-
The problem then was that the
cost for bringing the structure
here was prohibitive, $100,000.
But then it was announced that
Saudi Arabian Airlines will pay
for the freight which is being
shipped on an Air France 747
cargo jet.
The Saudi grant came as a
result from Nancy Thurmond,
wife of Sen. Strom Thurmond
dation board member, to Nouha
Alhegelan, wife of the Saudi Am-
bassador Faisal Alhegelan, who
is a "good friend" of Mrs. Thur-
"I THINK the Saudi Arabians
are well aware of events in the
U.S.," Mrs. Thurmond toldtLr
Washington Post. "They saw
this as an avenue for getting in-
volved. I don't think there was an
ulterior motive behind it. R
creates a better understanding
between the two countries. It was
a gesture of good will."
But Dr. Michael Berenbaum,
executive director of the Jewish
Community Council of Greater
Washington, said that these gifts
were "an example of the vast
economic power Saudi Arabia en-
joys. Lest we be overly moved by
this largesse, we should be re-
minded that over the past nine
years the Saudis increased the
price of oil. What they are giving
us is petty change on the billion}
of dollars the American peop/e
have paid to Saudi Arabia for
their oil."
There is no doubt that the Sau-
dis have gotten good public rela-
tions values for their donations.
It is easier for them to donate
$150,000 than to really prove
friendship for the United States
by providing the moderate acts
for which the U.S. government
likes to credit them.
These donations are "petty
change" when one considers the
billions given to the Palestine
Liberation Organization for their J
terrorist acts, for example. What
is nee'ded is not charity, but proof
that the Saudis want to work for
peace in the Middle East, by sup-

fW News in Brief
Bonn Wants Three Munich Terrorists
ByJTA Services %
BONN A West German
lawyer has asked the Justice
Minister to seek the extradition
of three Palestinian terrorists
reportedly captured by Israeli
forces in Lebanon recently. The
three, believed to have partici-
pated in the 1972 massacre of Is-
raeli Olympics athletes in
Munich, would not be given a fair
trial in Israel, according to attor-
ney Wilhelm Schoettler.
Schoettler represented the Pal-
estinians when they were briefly
imprisoned in Germany several
years ago and claims to have
power of attorney to action their
behalf. He said extradition was
also justified by the fact that
their alleged crimes were com-
mitted on German soil.
Schoettler is known here for his
rightwing political views. But he
insisted he is not a member of the
neo-Nazi National Democratic
Party or of any neo-Nazi group.
He said that if extradition fails,
he would go to Jerusalem to
defend the Palestinians if they
are tried before an Israeli court.
Knesset Confirms Naming
Of Ben Porat to Cabinet
voted 52-45 to confirm the ap-
pointment of Mordechai Ben-
Porat as a Minister-Without
Portfolio in Premier Menachem
Begins coalition Cabinet. The
vote followed a stormy debate
during which Labor Alignment
dove Shulamit Aloni denounced
the war in Lebanon and Likud
MK Koni Milo lashed out at the
foreign news media and Israel
television for allegedly distorting
the war news to put Israel in a
bad light.
Ben-Porat and former Finance
Minister Yigal Hurwitz had com-
prised the Telem faction, founded
by the late Moshe Day an. They
dissolved it voluntarily and
joined the coalition. This restored
Begin's one-seat Knesset major-
ity which he lost several months
ago by the defections of Likud
MKs Amnon Lin and Yitzhak
Peretz. The government is
reportedly now negotiating with
the ultra-nationalist Tehiya fac-
tion to bring it into the coalition
as well.
Rightwing Groups Rise
In Strength, Bonn Says
BONN Internal security
services have reported a sharp
rise last year in the number of
extreme rightwing organizations
operating in West Germany and
in their membership which was
placed at 10,300. According to
security sources, 1981 was the
first year since 1989 that the far
right has managed to increase its
Officially, only 19 groups with
a membership of about 1,150 are
classified as "neo-Nazi." But that
number does not include about
600 members of the outlawed
Wehrsportsgruppe. Hoffmann
and the Peoples Socialist Move-
ment. The security services do
not classify the rightwing Na-
tional Democratic Party (NDP)
as neo-Nazi but most West Ger-
man political leaders do and the
NDP is referred to as neo-Nazi by
most newspapers.
The security services are most
concerned by the growing pro-
pensity for violence among neo-
Nazis and rightwing extremists.

Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, acting on behalf of the
American Jewish community,

Under Fire of WJCongress
Zionist Organization Executive
has sharply attacked Nahum
Goldmann and Philip Klutznick,
two past presidents of the World
Jewish Congress, for their state-
ment in Paris calling upon Israel
to lift its siege of Beirut and for
mutual Israeli-Palestinian recog-
nition. The same statement was
also made by former French Pre-
mier Pierre Mendes-France.
In a communique issued here,
the WZO "rejected the harmful
and unnecessary interference in
Israel's internal affairs by Gold-

nor the organizations they once
headed. They speak only for

Kreisky Opens His Arms
To New PLO Envoy
VIENNA Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky confirmed that Abdullah
Frangi, the Palestine Liberation
Organization's diplomatic repre-
sentative in Bonn, will become
the PLO's diplomatic envoy in
Austria as well. "He shall get his
accreditation," Kreisky said.
The announcement was un-
expected inasmuch as the
Austrian government appeared
in no hurry to receive a replace-
ment for the former PLO repre-
sentative, Ghazi Hussein, who
was declared persona non grata
and outsted from the country last
summer for his alleged involve-
ment in an arms smuggling at-
tempt at the Vienna airport. -
Frangi had been considered as
a possible successor for several
months but Kreisky himself said
there was no rush to fill the post.
Bir Zeit University
Closed for Three Months
JERUSALEM Israeli mili-
tary authorities closed down Bir
Zeit University on the West
Bank following demonstrations
on the campus earlier in the week
at which more than 100 students
were arrested. Bir Zeit, 10 miles
north of Ramallah. is considered
an intellectual stronghold of sup-
port for the Palestine Liberation
Organization. It has been closed
down several times in the past
after anti-Israel demonstrations
by the student body.
The university was ordered
closed for a period of three
months because of student
protests against the Israeli occu-
pation despite repeated warnings
by the West Bank civil adminis-
tration and the army, the author-
ities said. It had been reopened
only a few months ago after the
faculty heads promised that the
students would stay in their
classrooms and refrain from dem-
onstrations. Israel's invasion of
Lebanon is believed to have trig-
gered the latest protests.

Dawalibi had also been "loaned"
by King Khalid to Pakistan's
Prime Minister, Muhammad Zia
ul-Haq, for the drafting of
Islamic legislation, part of
Pakistan's current Islamicization
Under Dawalibi, the World
Muslim Congress, in addtion to
its United Nations status, has
engaged in dialogues with Chris-
tian bodies. Inamullah Khan,
secretary-general of the Con-
gress, conducted such discus-
sions with the staff of the World
Council of Churches in February
1981, in Geneva. The following
Mar. '20, Dawalibi had an
audience with Pope John Paul II,
during which they reportedly
spoke about advancing Christian-
Muslim dialogue.
In October, 1981. Dawalibi
stated in Paris that such
dialogues were necessary because
"international Jewry is undoubt-
edly behind the persistence of
misunderstanding (between
Muslim and Christian) and has
disseminated deviation among
Christian clergymen ... It is an
indisputable fact that the Jews
have succeeded in penetrating
the highest offices in the church."
AIM. HAS taken steps to shed
on the previously-unexposed
anti-Semitic side of the World
Muslim Congress. U.S. Secre-
tary -General Javier Perez de
Cuellar was urged to initiate an
investigation to see whether the
World Muslim Congress is still
eligible for NGO status. In its
letter, ADL noted that by
resolution of the UN's Economic
and Social Council, the "aims and
purposes" of NGO's must con-
form to the UN Charter, and that
as a matter of UN policy, the
Secretary-General was asked to
"exclude all those organizations
whose aims or practices tend to
contribute to the propagation of
Nazi ideology and racial and-or
religious discrimination."
With regard to the World
Council of Churches and the
Vatican, ADL's sharing back-
ground information about the
World Muslim Congress so that
they become aware that they
have been meeting with an orga-
nization which promotes anti-
Jewish bigotry.
Another issue emerging from
ADL's investigation into the
World Muslim Congress is the
behind-the-scenes role played by
Saudi Arabia and others in the
Arab world in the funding and
promotion of Holocaust re-
visionist propaganda. While
the full picture has not yet un-
folded, certain facts are known,
THIS WAS not the first time
William Grimstad. the author of
the books sent to the senators,
has been connected with the
Saudis. In 1978, ADL revealed
that he had filed a Foreign Agent
registration form with the U.S.
Justice Department reporting a
$20,000 payment from the Saudis
"in appreciation for my 1976
book Anti-Zion and intended for
use in similar humanitarian
educational projects." Grimstad
subsequently changed his mind,
declaring that it was all a misun-
derstanding; it wasn't the Saudis
who had paid him the $20,000, he
claimed, but some anonymous
donor whose identity he did noj.
An article in the June, 1978,
ADL Bulletin, spelled out Grim-
slad s connections. He was
a former managing editor of
White Power, the official publica-
tion of the neo-Nazi National
Socialist White Peoples Party.
An earlier edition of Anti-Zion
was published in 1973 in Wash-
ington. DC, by the Aryan Press ,
under the title, The Jews oil.
Trial. A later edition of the book'
was published by Noontide
Press, the publishing house in
Los Angeles controlled by Willis
Carlo, head of the Washington-
based far-right anti-Semitic orga-
nization, Liberty Lobby.
Although the edition of the
second book received by the sen-
ators, The Six Million Remniid-
./< tisements in various U.S. and
British hate publications identify
Grimstad as its author. The book
was originally published by His-
torical Review Press in England.
The firm is headed by a Hritisifj
right-wing extremist, Anthony
Hancock, who has been linked
with various British neo-fascists,
including the National Front and
the League of St. George. His
printing company specializes in
the publication of anti-Semitic
and neo-Nazi literature. A subse-
quent edition of The Six Million
Reconsidered was published

the mailing to U.S. senators was

What seems to be unfurling is
an anti-Jewish propaganda ef-
fort. It is being conducted from,
Pakistan, but the Riyadh connec-
tion cannot be ignored. Despite
the attempt by some to portray
the Saudis as "moderate." their
anti-Zionist proclamations have
been shown to exhibit the rawest
anti-Semitic tendencies, and this
fits in with the current
machinations of the World Mus-
lim Congress.

shaping up
as one of the most
crucial races nationwide. Incum-

Weicker is running for a third
term and is drawing challenges

who has had a consistent and
outspoken record of strong sup-
port for Israel, is being chal-
lenged by Frescott Bush, brother
of Vice President George Bush,
for the OOP nomination, and by
Rep. Toby Moffett (D.) in the
general election. Despite recent
good public statements, Moffett
is remembered for his 1980 meet-
ing with Yaair Arafat, his mixed
record on foreign aid, and par-
ticularly his vote (one of only 321
in favor of a $200 million cut in
aid to Israel in 1976. In a late
June poll by a Hartford TV sta-
tion, Weicker and Bush came out
even in a GOP primary, and
Weicker led Moffett narrowly in a
general election matchup. Mof-
fett easily beat Bush in a two way
race. These results buoyed the
Weicker camp as thev pushed
toward the July 23 GOP conven-
tion, where Bush will have to re-
ceive 20 percent to gain a place on
the September primary ballot.

Morris J. Amitay served
as executive director of

tee (AIPAC) from De-
cember, 1974 to Octo-
ber, 1980 following con-
siderable experience
with the Department of
State and the U.S. Con-
gress. During his five
years as a senior legis-
lative aide in the
Senate, Mr. Amitay
took the lead in organ-
izing Senate initiatives
affecting Israel and So-
viet Jewry. Previously
he had worked as a leg-
islative assistant in the
House of Representa-
tives. He is curently
practicing law and
lobbying in Washington
with offices on Capitol
Hill and was recently
described by Washing-

Democratic Sen. Lawton
Chiles is a good bet to retain his
Senate seat for a third term, as
the (iOP has failed to muster a

Chiles should be able to beat any

Richard Lugar, a member of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, is facing his first reelec-
tion fight against a strong Demo-
cratic opponent, Rep. Floyd
jFilhian. Fithian decided to
challenge Lugar on the basis of
the Reagan economic program's
impact on Indiana. While gener-
ally supportive of foreign aid leg-
islation, on the two major contro-
versial issues of sales of sophis-
ticated weapons to Saudi Arabia,
Lugar supported the sales both in
the Foreign Relations Committee
and on the Senate floor. Fithian,
who has a mixed record on for-
eign aid, voted against the sale of
AWACS and F-15 enhancement
equipment last year in the House,
and was active in his opposition.
At this time Lugar is the clear
I favorite.
In Maine Democrat George
Mitchell, who was appointed to
fill out Muskie's unexpired term,
is being challenged by Republic-
an Rep. David Emery, a four
term Congressman. Mitchell,
who is of Lebanese-American ex-
traction, has been very support-
ive of strong U.S.-Israel relations
in his two years in the Senate. He
actively opposed the sale of
AWACS and F-15 enhancement
equipment to Saudi Arabia and
voted in favor of foreign aid leg-
islation. Emery also opposed the
AWACS package but has not
been supportive on foreign aid
legislation or on any other initia-
tive favorable to Israel. Early in
the race, Emery was the heavy
favorite to easily defeat Mitchell.
Recently, however, Mitchell has

Blum Reaffirms Israel Has No
Desire to be Lebanon's Occupiers
Yehuda Blum, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, said that Israel had
no intention of becoming an
occupying force in south
Lebanon once it completed
its military operation.
"Israel stands for the ter-
ritorial integrity and sovereignty
of Lebanon," Blum told reporters
following a meeting with Jewish
community leaders attending the
national commission conference
of the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith here.
rael had "no territorial ambitions
whatsoever in Lebanon." How-
ever, Blum would not speculate
on the future status of southern
Lebanon once the operation,
dubed, "Peace for Galilee," has
been completed.
Questioned whether Israel has
overreacted in its response to the
terrorist shelling of Israel's
northern settlements and the re-
cent shooting of Israel's Am-
bassador to Britain, Blum asked
rhetorically what the level of re-
action should be in retaliation to
terrorist attacks.
Blum touched on a similar
theme in an address last month
to the United Nationals Security
Council prior to its adoption of a
resolution calling for the with-
draw! of Israeli forces from
Lebanon "forthwith and uncon-
ditionally." The (Council) also
called on all parties involved to
observe the resolution unani-
mously adopted thereafter calling
for the cessation "immediately
and simultnaeously" of all mili-
tary activities with Lebanon and
across the Israeli-Lebanese bor-
IN HIS address to the Council
.he envoy chastised the Council
for "evincing not the slightest in-
terest" in terrorist actions per-
pertrated by the Palestine
(Liberation Organization. "How
many Israelis have to be killed by
error is is for this Council to be
(ersuaded that the limits of oUr
endurance have been reached?"
he asked.
"Israel cannot expect this
body even to deplore PLO bar-
barism against Israel's civilian
population, let alone take any
steps with a view towards curb-
ing that barbarism."
Blum offered "highlights" of
PLO terrorism from April, 1979
up to the shooting of the Israeli
Ambassador, Shlomi Argov. He
pointed out that since the cease-
fire was agreed to across the Is-
raeli-Lebanese border last July,
17 people have been killed and
241 wounded in a total of 141 ter-
rorist acts, "all of them
originating from Terrorist bases
inside Lebanon.
