Brenner Named Chairman Of
$15,000 Phis Dinner
Henry Brenner has been
named Chairman of the $15,000
and above Dinner for the 1983
Federation-UJA drive by Abby
atUvine, General Campaign
The SI5.000 and above Dinner
is a new level that has been
formed this year in the Federa-
tion -UJ A drive. The dinner will
be held at Brenner's home in the
Hamlet in Delray Beach.
Brenner has been a member of
the Board of the South County
Jewish Federation since its in-
ception and has been Chairman of
the Hamlet Division. He has also
een a leader in the Jewish com-
ttnity of New York City.
Brenner was recently high-
lighted in Jewish Week, the lead-
ing Anglo-Jewish newspaper in
New York as "the father of mo-
bilization." Mobilization was the
drive in New York City that ev-
entually became the nationwide
Super Sunday program of the
United Jewish Appeal.
Brenner was formerly founder
^nd President of NPD-HTI, a
large market research firm and at
present is consultant to five other
such firms. He continues to serve
Henry Brenner
as an advisor to the Greater New
York City campaign, where he
lives five months of the year.
Brenner was one of the
founders of the community
synagogue in Sands Point, New
York where he was a former Pres-
ident and is a Board Member of
several major Jewish organiza-
tions including the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee
and the New York Federation of
Reform synagogues. He was re-
cently named one of the founding
fathers of advertising research by
the Advertising Research Found-
ation. .
In accepting the position as
chairman of the $15,000 and
above Dinner he commented
"this is the year that we have to
make dramatic break-throughs
for Israel. This is the year that we
must call upon all committed
Jews to increase their pledges by
at least 50 percent if we are to
meet the pressing needs of Israel
during a time of great economic
adversity caused by. the Lebanon
situation. I am personally de-
lighted that we have formed this
new level of giving so that we can
encourage people to give with all
their hearts and with all of their
Jewish commitment.".
In commenting upon the ap-
pointment James Baer, President
of the Federation said, "I know
no other person in South County
more respected than Henry
Brenner. I know, that with his
leadership, this new division will
be a complete success."

Mubarak Hangs Tough
Denounces Israel's 'Beating
the Drums of War'
President Hosni Mubarak,
in an address marking the
inauguration of this year's
Parliamentary session, has
issued a sharply-worded
denunciation of Israeli
policy in Lebanon and
warned Israel that its ac-
tions would have "grave
At the same time, however, he
reiterated Egypt's commitment
"to every convention and every
agreement" to which his country
was party.
Although the President an-
nounced no specific measures
against Israel is the wake of the
massacre by Phalangist militia-
men of Palestinian refugees in
Beirut, the stinging tone of his
address underscored the strain in
relations between the two coun-
tries which has increased drama-
tically in recent weeks. Egypt has
officially blamed Israel for the
massacre and recalled its Ambas-
sador from Israel.
"THE ISRAELI policy has
done a lot of harm to the cause of
peace and stability in the area,"
he declared to the legislators. Re-
ferring to what he called Israel's
illusion of military might that he
said was shattered by Egypt in
1973, Mubarak declared that
"once again it is beating the
drums of war." This was a ref-
erence to the Yom Kippur War.
"It is imperative for the Israeli
government to understand that
this policy that they are adopting
will have the grave repercussions
and that they will definitely
backfire on them, and that this
policy will never annihilate the
people of Palestine or eliminate
the right of the Palestinians to

(JTA) Secretary of State
George Shultz, terming the
Middle East dispute the
"most complex of interna-
tional conflicts, warned
that world peace cannot be
achieved unless and until
"this terrible regional con-
flict is settled." He called
on all parties concerned to
accept President Reagan's
Middle East peace plan.
Addressing the United Nations
General Assembly, Shultz stated,
"I call on all concerned to accept
President Reagan's challenge and
hasten the realization of true
peace in the Middle East."
The Secretary of State said
that Israel's just requirement for

tertwined with fulfilling the
legitimate rights of the Pales-
tinian people.
world which need and deserve
peace, Israel surely holds a pre-
eminent place. Of the peoples of
the world who need and deserve a
place with which they can truly
identify, the Palestinian claim is
undeniable," Shultz declared.
"But Israel can only have
peace in a context in which the
Palestinian people also realize
their legitimate rights," he said.
And "similarly, the Palestinian
people will be able to achieve
their legitimate rights only in a
context which gives Israel what
it so clearly has a right to de-
mand to exist and to exist in
peace and security."
Commenting on the dispatch of
U.S. Marines to Beirut, Shultz
said the Marines together with
troops from Italy and France
"are helping the Lebanese
government and armed forces as-
sure the safety of the peoples of
that tormented capital." He said
the marines are in Lebanon "to

Texan's Vision
He Drills for Oil by the Good Book
TEL AVIV A Christian oil
man from Texas is drilling a well
in Israel based on readings in the
Bible and backed up by belief,
technology and hard cash.
The story began during World
War II, when fighter pilot An-
drew C. Sorelle, Jr., was strafing
a German truck convoy in Nor-
mandy. His American Air Force
Thunderbolt was hit by a Ger-
man 88-mm shell and went out of
"I knew I had lost my air-
craft," the recipient of the Silver
Star and Distinguished Flying
Cross remembers. "I knew I was
going to die. What happened
next, I am told, could not have
"Just a few feet from the
ground, that battle-torn old plane
snap-rolled. Instead of barrel-
rolling, nose down, it was sud-
denly making a steep climbing
THE PLANE continued to do
the impossible, and Andy Sorelle
arrived intact back at his base.
"After I turned off the ignition
switch, I sat quietly in a superna-
tural hush. In that silence, God
became real to me."
That experience changed
Sorelle from a non-religious hell-
raiser into a believer. Now 61, he
spent years "wondering why God
saved my life, when I saw so
many good guys get killed. I felt
I had a destiny, that God saved
me for a purpose. I think I now
know what it is."
In 1968, Sorelle and his wife
visited Israel as part of a 13-na-
tion tour. "Before that, I had
never thought about Israel, but I
became hooked, and I wanted to
do something for the country.
The only thing I knew, being
petroleum engineer and in the oil
business, was that Israel needs
oil and maybe I could help."
Several years later, he came to
Israel to do an oil exploration job.
"We surveyed most of the coun-
try, and found a few weak pros-
pects, but nothing we wanted to
drill. Then they asked us to go
down to the Sinai. We stayed
there a few weeks, mapped five
very promising sites and asked
for a license."
BUT THAT was in November,
1977, and a week later, Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat made his
historic trip to Jerusalem. "They
began the peace negotiations and
asked us to wait. We waited for
two years, and then they gave the
Sinai back to Egypt, with the oil
fields and the promising sites.
"There's a scripture in the
Bible where God says. They that
bless Israel, I will bless.' Wdl,
we'd tried our best. But that
seemed like the end of our ven-
ture in Israel."
It wasn't. Two years later, a
\ college friend of Sorelle's came to
him with a map of the twelve
tribes of Israel. "There's a pas-
sage in the Old Testament,
Deuteronomy 33:24," noted
Sorelle, "where Moses, talking
about the blessings of the twelve
tribes, said Asher would dip his
foot in oil. Well, on that map, the
leg of Asher started in Lebanon,
the heel of the foot was drawn in
Haifa, and the toe in Caesarea.
"I suddenly realized that the
only area we had not surveyed in
Israel was between Haifa and
f Caesarea, along the coastline. So

followed by seismographic and
geological readings, confirmed
Sorell's belief that the Caesarea-
Haifa stretch was "one of the
most interesting geological pros-,
pects ever to be mapped in Is-
He points out that he is drilling
not far from Megiddo, the pro-
phesied site of the battle of Ar-
mageddon. "The Bible says that
Israel will be attacked by, and
rapidly defeat, the Russians, who
will be coming after 'spoil,' which
means something of great value.
They wouldn't come for cucum-
bers and tomatoes. So there's got
to be something big here, and
that's oil. An oil discovery in Is-
rael would certainly make its ene-
mies mad.
"Everyone knows what Golda
Meir said, that when Moses
crossed the Red Sea, he turned
the wrong way. Well, I don't be-
lieve he did. It simply wasn't
God's time for Israel.
"When you study the Bible,
you see that God told the Jews
He would scatter them through-
out the world because of their
disobedience, they would be per-
secuted and downtrodden, and
then He would gather them to-
gether again and Israel would be-
come a nation once more.
"There was another prophecy
which said Israel will be blessed
above nations. That certainly
hasn't happened. But it will. The
reason I love the Bible is that it's
the only thing I've found to be
completely truthful and accurate,
and I know the prophecies will be
tious, and he has gathered people
around him who share it.
Manager of operations at the well
is Victor Kenneth Lambert, one
of the top oil men in the world
who can handle very deep wells.
"I wouldn't be here if I didn't
believe it was God's will," ex-
plained Lambert. "We've had a
lot of problems, but before the
birth of anything great, there's a
lot a pain and tribulation."
Geologist Jack Sherman ad-
mits: "To be honest, as a geolo-
gist I was skeptical at the idea of
drilling according to the Bible.
But there are unique things
about this well that I can't ex-
plain. We've nearly lost the well
on 14 separate occasions. When-
ever we've been stuck, there has
been some concentrated prayer,
and a day or two later the trouble
has cleared up. I'll tell you some-
thing. I'm beginning to read the
Bible more than ever before in my
When things were looking par-
ticularly gloomy, Mrs. Sorelle
lost a solid gold bracelet while
swimming in a turbulent sea near
the well site. A week later, when
it should have been buried
fathoms deep, Sorelle found it in
the water, sticking out of the
sand in a sort of "V," as in vic-
"It was such a powerful sign.
Every time we felt we were at the
end, God would answer our
prayers. Sometimes," Sorelle
conceded wryly, "He waits until
the last split second. But He's
Editor Runes
Dead at Age 80
Dagobert Runes, founder and
editor-in-chief of the Philosophi-

a long illness. He was 80 years
old. Runes was world renowned
for his philosophical contribu-
tions, the author of 24 books and
editor or numerous works, in-
cluding those of Albert Einstein,
Bertrand Russell, Jean Paul
Sartre and John Dewey.
Born in Zastavna, Austria-
Hungary, Runes immigrated to
the United States in 1926 after
receiving his PhD from the Uni-
versity of Vienna of 1924. He
served as the director of the In-

Israel Terrible Suffering,
Carter Tells 'Time' Mag
Former President Jimmy
Carter believes that "If Is-
rael were to annex the West
Bank it would be, in effect,
rejecting Resolution 242 as
a basis for peace" in the
Middle East. That, accord-
ing to Carter, "would re-
move any vestige of legiti-
macy from the Israeli claim
that they are searching for
a peaceful solution" and
would "probably terminate
the Israeli-Egyptian trea-
in the course of a four-hour inter-
view with senior editors of Time
magazine in Plains, Ga., in con-
nection with the publication next
month of "Keeping Faith," a per-
sonal account of his years at the
White House. Lengthy extracts
from the book, published in the
Oct. 11 issue of Time, are a day-
1 by-day Summary of the Camp
David meetings in September,
1978 between Carter, Israeli Pre-
mier Menachem Begin and Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat of Egypt.
IN THE interview, published
in the same edition, Carter con-
fessed he was "pro-Sadat." He
said he found the late Egyptian
leader "completely open, coura-
geous, generous, far-sighted .
willing to ignore details to reach
an ultimate goal of peace ."
In Carter's view, "There is no
doubt Begins purpose all the
time (at Camp David) was to cut
a separate deal with Egypt. He
disavowed that intention, but all
his actions, all his words indicat-
ed that. Begin was the most re-
calcitrant of all the Israelis at
Camp David. I almost never had
a pleasant surprise in my deal-
ings with him. ."
SPEAKING OF recent events,
Carter told Time, "I was shocked
and repulsed by the attacks on
the Palestinians in Lebanon. The
bloodshed was grossly out of pro-
portion to any threat to Israel on
the northern border."
Later in the interview, he ac-
cused Begin of "a tendency to
treat the Palestinians with scorn,
to look down on them almost as
subhumans and to rationalize his
abusive attitude toward them by
categorizing all Palestinians as
terrorists." He added: "I do not
think Begin has any intention of
ever removing the settlements
from the West Bank and that is a
very serious mistake for Israel."
According to Carter, a Mideast
settlement "compatible with the
Camp David accords" would re-
quire "Israel's withdrawal of her
armed forces and military gov-
ernment from the West Bank and
Gaza; some modifications of the
1967 borders to enhance Israel's
military security; specified Is-
raeli military outposts with de-
militarization of the West Bank;
a legitimate homeland there for
the Palestinians, one hopes with
a link to Jordan. ."
CARTER SAID, "The Palesti-
nians deserve full autonomy and
an end to human rights viola-
tions," but "I would not say they
have a right to an independent
state, but to a political entity
that is an identifiable homeland.
The only logical place for it is on
the West Bank."
On Jerusalem, he thought the
city should remain "undivided
with unimpeeded access to holy
places by all worshipers." He ob-
served, however, that "Jerusalem
is not only part of Israel, it is part
of the West Bank and its ulti-
mate status should be determin-
ed through negotiation" as pro-
vided for by Resolution 242.
The former President offered
his assessment of various Middle'
East leaders. He said President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt had
been one of Sadat's closest assoc-
iates and confidants. "I have
never detected any inclination in
Mubarak to do anything contrary
to what Sadat have done had he
Hussein of Jordan to be "person-
ally courageous but an extremely
timid man in political matters."
He attributed that to the weak-
ness of Jordan as a nation which
was "a contrivance, arbitrarily
devised by a few strokes of the
pen." Hussein "is frustrating be-
cause he has not been courageous
at times when political courage is
needed," Carter said.
He described the Saudis as "a
force for moderation and stabili-
ty" in the region but admitted he
was "frustrated that they did not
have the confidence to say pub
licly, 'Let us support Sadat and
Camp David. We approve of Jor-
dan and the Palestinians negotia-
ting just to see if Israel is acting
in good faith.' That has not hap-
pened yet," Carter said.
Speaking of Israel in his book,
Carter wrote: "I consider this
homeland for the Jews to be com-
patible with the teachings of the
Bible, hence ordained by God.
These beliefs made my commit-
ment to the security of Israel un-

inquiry set up to investi-
gate Israel's role, if any, in
the massacre of Palestinian
civilians by units of the
Lebanese Phalangist mili-

The members of the panel were
appointed by the President of the
Supreme Court, Chief Justice
Yitzhak Kahan, as provided
under the 1968 Commissions of
Inquiry Law. Kahan, 69,anddue
to retire in a year, designated
himself chairman. He named as

General, and Gen. (res.) Yonah

el's crack Golani Brigade and
later served as commanding
general of the central command.

even the most skeptical that the
inquiry will be conducted fairly
and thoroughly. Kahan and
Barak are distinguished jurists,
regarded as "judges' judges"
whose entire outlook is judicial
and divorced from any other con-
Barak, 46, served as Attorney
General in the late '70s, begin-
ning under a Labor government
and remaining in office after
Likud took power. He played a
key role in the Camp David nego-
tiations of September, 1978 as a
legal advisor to the Israeli nego-
tiating team. Efrat, 56, now
heads a fuel transportation com-
pany. A lifelong soldier with an
outstanding record, he has never
been involved in politics.
Beirut Formally United With
Removal of City's 'Green Line'
Beirut was formally unified
with the removal of the last
obstacles which have
divided the Lebanese capi-
tal along its "green line"
enforced since the civil war
started some seven years
And with the departure of the
!ast Israeli soldiers from the in-
ternational airport, and the
arrival there of the first batch of
800 U.S. Marines to bolster the
Lebanese army, the first civilian
aircraft to land there since the
Lebanon campaign began three
months ago, touched down there.
Another 400 American marines
landed from the sea on beaches in
the town now cleared of mines.
THE MOST forward Israeli
soldiers now hold a line running
()uth of the airport, outside the
Beirut city limits, and swinging
northwards in open areas to meet
the Beirut-Damascus highway, a
stretch of which is still held by
Israeli forces.
There appear to be some differ-
ences of opinion between Israel
and the U.S. about the number of
PLO fighters who remained in or
slipped back into Beirut after the
evacuation or expulsion of the
bulk of the PLO.
According to Israeli sources,
some 2,000 PLO fighters were in
the city when Israel reentered
west Beirut in force. But the
Americans claim that only a few
hundred were in the town.
IN OTHER parts of Lebanon,
some 5,000 PLO fighters are sold
to be now in the Bekaa valley,
with several thousands more sta-
tioned in Tripoli in northern
Lebanon. Those in the Bekaa
valley are dispersed among the
Syrian army units and disposi-
tions, sniping at Israelis, laying
mines and shooting at Israeli
position. The PLO forces receive
intelligence and logistics aid from
the Syrian army.
U.S. Marines Will
Withdraw Without An
Eye on Israeli Moves
(JTA) The State De-
partment has asserted
that the withdrawal of
Syrian and Israeli forces
from Lebanon is not a
condition that must be met
before U.S. Marines will
leave Lebanon.
The Department's deputy
spokesman, Alan Romberg, ex-
plained that "during the limited
period of time "the multinational
force will be in Lebanon, "the
U.S. expects that the Israelis and
he expected Syria and Israel to
leave Lebanon during the period
the multinational force was help-
ing the Lebanese government
regain its ability to preserve its
own security.
The President said the Marines
would leave once the Lebanese
government feels it is "in

open the possibility that the
Lebanese might not feel in charge
until foreign forces have left their

sion's composition was an-
nounced. The officers pointed out
that the decision for the Israeli

Sept. 15 and later to send the
Phalangists into the Shatila and

massacres occurred, were both
taken on the highest political
An army spokesman has con-
firmed that a meeting took place
last week between these officers
and Sharon but vigorously
denied a report in the London
Sunday Times that it had turned
into a "near mutiny." The Times
story was co-authored by the
newspaper's Jerusalem corre-
spondent, David Blundy, and
Hirsch Goodman, military corre-
spondent of the Jerusalem Post.
The Post, which published the
Times story reported that its de-
tails were known to Goodman
and other Israeli reporters last
week but could not be published.
pers and the State radio corre-
spondent, Shmuel Tal, said that
the Times' report was "over-
dramatized and exaggerated."
But it was generally acknowl-
edged that some officers'
demanded that Sharon resign.
The meeting, held at an undis-
closed location outside Tel Aviv,
lasted six hours. It was described
as "highly emotional but
nowhere near a mutiny." Officers
who had criticized Sharon
sharply earlier in the day were
said to have modified their tone
in his presence.
According to the reports,
Sharon attacked the officers for
demanding the resignation of a
minister and advised them to
resign their own commission if
they wanted to enter politics.
Sharon, in a radio interview
last week, said he might resign if
the inquiry commission proved
that Israeli soldiers had taken
part in the west Beirut massacre.
Not even Israel's harshest critics
have ever contended that was the
case. The Israelis were faulted for
allowing the Phalangists to enter
the refugee camps.
Sharon insisted that the gov-
ernment did not have the slight-
est suspicion of what would ensue
because it regarded the Phalang-
ists as a disciplined military

Soft Drink Plant in Rome
Suffers Anti-Semitic Assault
ROME (JTA)A Coca Cola bottling plant whose
chief stockholders are two Jewish brothers went up in
flames following a bomb explosion. Anti-Semitic graffiti
was sprayed on the walls of the building in Ora, near
Bolanzo. Firemen who fought the blaze for nearly two
hours estimated the damage at several thousand dollars.
The walls were smeared with swastikas, stars of David
and the words "Juden" "Long Live Hitler," "cursed
Jews" and "Coca Cola equals Israel." The bombing was
the latest in a series of isolated attacks on Jews and Jew-
ish property in Italy since the massacre of Palestinians in
West Beirut last month. A bomb destroyed the entrance
to the main synagogue in Milan several nights ago. A
week earlier, the Michelangelo Hotel in Milan refused to
cater a Bar Mitzvah party because the local waiters union
said it was too dangerous.
Labor Cancels Threat
As Inquiry Slated
An extraordinary ses-
sion of the Knesset was
cancelled when the Labor
Alignment withdrew its call
for urgent debate. The op-
position party acted after
the government announced
that it will establish a judi-
cial commission to investi-
gate the west Beirut mas-
sacre of Sept. 16-17 and Is-
rael's role, if any, in it.
Labor's move to call off the
Knesset debate was also appar-
ently in response to the Likud
Party's cancellation of a pro-gov-
ernment rally it had planned to
stage in Tel Aviv Saturday night
to counter last Saturday night's
massive anti-government demon-
stration there. The Cabinet's
unanimous decision to reverse its
previous opposition to a full scale
probe of events in west Beirut
drew commendation from Presi-
dent Yitzhak Navon.
NAVON, who was the first
high-ranking Israeli to call for an
investigatory commission, said
he was "very pleased" by the de-
cision, even though it should
have been made sooner. He ex-
pressed hope that this move
would reduce tensions in Israel
and cause the level of verbal vio-
lence to subside.
At the same time, Navon urged
President Amin Gemayel of
Lebanon to launch an investiga-
tion of his own into the massacre
of Palestinians by units of his
Christian Phalangist party. He
said there were alarming signs
that the Lebanese were trying to
cover up the truth. Navon spoke
during a visit to the Druze village
of Julis on the occasion of the
Moslem feast of Id-Al.
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon,
the prime target of Israeli
protests over the events in west
Beirut, expressed full support for
the commission of inquiry into
both the political and military
acts by Israel before and during
the episode. Addressing a
memorial service for Yom Kippur
War dead. Sharon said, "There is
nothing more important than the
moral value and power of the
people of Israel in the land of
Israel. An investigation should
>e carried out in depth and
oboby should escape such an in-
estigation, either on the political
or military level."
Sharon added: "I personally
. believe in and recognize the
conception of ministerial respon-
sibility. To investigate yes.
But to put this at the very center
of our lives no." Sharon's refe-
rence to ministerial responsibility
was seen as an allusion to public
demands, after the Yom Kippur
War that Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan resign.

The Facts Say Otherwise
Answering questions from the press the other
week, President Reagan categorically denied that he
was attempting to destabilize the coalition govern-
ment of Prime Minister Begin. Said Mr. Reagan: If
Mr. Begin truly represents the people of Israel, then
he is going to continue to do business with him.
There is in fact no other way, he said, because the
United States expects to continue to do business
with the State of Israel as a valued ally.
On its face, this comes across like Gang Busters.
Until, that is, you study another one of the
President's remarks. Said he: The United States has
never engaged in any activity intended to destabilize
the leadership or government of another sovereign
( But this is pure fiction. From the political turmoil
of Iran to the agonies of Central and South American
countries, from the sabotage in which we engaged in
Southeast Asia to our covert activities on the con-
tinent of Africa, our own government has long been
active in the arena of governmental destabilization.
The result of all of this is either that Mr. Reagan
simply does not know our own history, or else he is
g guilty of telling an absolute untruth. In any case, it
makes a shambles of his comment on the
Administration's intentions in Israel specifically and
the Middle East generally. The bald fact is that
President Reagan and the new Bechtel Corp. State
Department under the hand of Secretary of State
George Shultz are dedicated to ousting the gover-
nment of Menachem Begin.
The Pitfall is Gear
Enter former President Jimmuh Carter. If there is '
any amendment that truly should be added to the '
United States Constitution, it ought to be one that
limits former Presidents to be seen only rarely and to
be heard not at all.
In Mr. Carter's case, that would be a welcome
thing, but no such luck. Now that two years have
passed since the American people sent him back to
Plains, Ga., the former Commander-in-Chief is about
to give birth to a book telling everyone why they
were wrong to send him back to Plains, and how ab-
surdly inefficient all his successors are. He needs the
advance publicity, and so he's set his mouth in mo-
Unfortunately, it does not end there. Mr. Carter
also has much to say about Israel, a nation with
whose destiny his Administration is inextricably
linked. The bonding glue is Camp David, where Mr.
Carter sure is getting himself stuck in his own
cement these days.
In next week's Time Magazine, after telling
one and all how saintly was the slain Anwar Sadat,
he pontificates on just what kind of an impossible
person Prime Minister Begin is. The curtain speech t %
to this little operetta is that Israel, after all, was
meant to be by God's design, and that the people of
Israel should not be confused with the government of ;':
In effect, according to Jimmuh, one may wish that f
Prime Minister Begin would disappear somehow, and |
so long as he does not oblige the world, we must suf- |
fer his follies, but we must never forget that Prime
Minister Begin is not Israel.
We would not mention this in and of itself because |
it is not worth mentioning. Remember? Former
Presidents should be seen only rarely and heard not
at all. Still, Mr. Carter's assessment of Mr. Begin is
precisely what President Reagan is doing these days I
though in his question-and-answer session last
week he averred otherwise: Both men en corn-age our \
own nation to distinguish between the people of Is-
rael and the government whom they elected.
If this is not an attempt at destabilization, we
don't know what is.

Arrogance of an Archbishop's Lecture
THE OTHER day, I waa dis-
cussing with a friend some finan-
cial problems about which I
believed she had considerable
knowledge and experience. Sug-
gesting that there was something
unique and symbolic in my
dilemma, I sighed in what I
thought was a playful tone and
asked: "Why me?"
The "why me?" refrain has
long been a private joke between
us, which we both have used for
years now to act out a sense of
frustration over one predicament
or another and to pretend in a
self-pitying way that only we,
and we alone, were being singled
out for calamity.
I have no idea how this thing
really began, or when, but it cer-
tainly had been pleasant up to
now. Only this time, the joke
didn't work. This time, she said:
"Oh, you poor persecuted Jew,
I AM reminded of a letter that
the Czech novelist, Franz Kafka
who was Jewish, wrote to one of
his secret lovers, Milena
Jesenska. in which he talked
about anti-Semitism and why,
among other reasons, marriage
between them was out of the
question, if only because of the
difference in their religions.
In the letter, Kafka examined
her observation about him that
he suffered the typical anxious -
ness of Jews." Said Kafka:
"And then Milena still talks
about anxiouaness, gives me a
blow on the chest or asks (what
so far as sound and rhythm are
concerned, comes to the same
thing in the Czech language):
'Jste zid 'Are you Jewish?'"
MILENA, in her own letter
which stimulated Kafka's
response, merely used "anxioua-
ness" and "Jews" as equivalents.
When she had asked him if he
were Jewish, in effect she meant
whether this was why he had,
from the beginning of his life,
complained of being anxious.
But Kafka deliberately misun-
derstood her point to make a far
more important one. His final ob-
servation in the letter to Milena
is the crux of the whole thing and
a powerful insight into anti-
Semitism in general, especially
because part of Kafka's genius
gave him the capacity to make
physical equivalents of emotional
"Don't you see," he asked
Milena, "how in the Jste the fist
is withdrawn to gather muscle-
strength? And then in the zid
(comes) the cheerful, unfailing,
forward-fly ing blow?''
In effect, argued Kafka, an
anti-Semitic remark is a physical
assault. And that is precisely
how I felt when my friend aban-
doned the years of banter be-
tween us about "why me?" and
when she suddenly called me a
"poor persecuted Jew."
IT WAS a remark not made, or
so my friend said, from any
motive other than "profound
affection." But it was the
"cheerful (italics mine), unfailing,
forward-flying blow" Kafka
talked about in his letter to
Milena that I saw instead. It was,
in the end, a physical assault.
I am reminded of this incident
because of an article the other
week by Miami's Archbishop
Edward A. McCarthy which, of
course, the Sunday Herald was
thrilled to feature if only because
' its scurrttousnMs is- disguised by
- a grudging patina of make-
believe Jesuitical scholarship. I
have been mulling the article over
in my mind since then, wondering
how to write about it without be-
coming scurrilous in return. My
talk with my old friend was pre-

Contradictory Trends in Modern Zionism
Friday, October 15, 1982
Volume 4

Number 34
The 'Shloshim' of Dr. Nahum Goldman fell
on Oct. 1. The great Jewish and Zionist lead-
er died at the age of 87 on Aug. 30, and he
was buried on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem on
Sept. 2.
Dr. Goldman served as president of the
World Zionist Organization from 1956 to
1968 and was founder president of the World
Jewish Congress. It was he who achieved the
Reparations Agreement with the Federal Re-
public of Germany in September, 1962.
Modern Jewish history and
Zionism, the great renaissance
movement of the Jewish people,
have shown two somewhat con-
tradictory trends. On the one
hand there has been the under-
standable urge to put an end to
the Jews' exceptional vicis-
situdes, the inferiority forced
upon them, their lack of a
country of their own, their per-
secution, and to give them living
conditions like those of other na-
tions, that is to say, equality of
rights wherever they live as
minorities and a Jewish state for
those who prefer their own coun-
These desires found their most
eloquent spokesmen in modern
Zionism, above all in Theodor
Herzl, who knew very little of
Jewish history and was brought
to Zionism by the sufferings of
the Jews. On the other hand, an-
other school of thought was
Dr. Goldmann
emerging that regarded the new
achievements of the Jewish peo-
ple, their recently attained equal-
ity of rights and most of all their
state, not as ends in themselves
but as essential prerequisites for
transforming the specific ideas
Non-party and non-conformist, Goldman
lived in Europe and in America, never
settling permanently in Israel His opinions
generated stormy debate throughout his life,
and he continued to express his controversial
views until shortly before his death in

people's outstanding leaders, we herewith

graphy, 'Sixty Years of Jewish Life' (Holt,
Rinehart and Winston, 1969).
and values of Jewiah culture into
reality. This hope waa most
strikingly enunciated in the ideas
of AhadHa-Am
THE MORE I reflect on the
Jewish past and present now, to-
ward the end of my career, the
more convinced I become that the
future can only be realized in a
synthesis of these two trends: to
enjoy equal rights and yet to re-
main different; to possess a state
of our own whose preeminent
duty nevertheless must be to be-
come the spiritual center for Jews
scattered all over the world. This
dilemma was unknown to earlier
generations; they remained Jews
whether they wanted to or not.
They were persecuted; they had
to live their separate lives, and
they had the heroic strength to
remain true to Judaism.
Today the question is funda-
mentally different. Not only are

Englewood, N.J. in 1974. This is
a copy of the introductory page

even though it was written seven

The story of Israel is still
tragedy. A nation that rose like a
phoenix out of the ashes of Hell is
still beleagured by the forces of
destruction on its borders and by
a world that with few excep-
tions looks on, at best indiffer-
ently, and for the most part with
pronounced hatred and gloating.
The story of Israel is tragedy
because a people who, more than
any other people in history, have
paid in blood and horror for their
right to live as human beings, are
still faced with more blood pay-
ments before that right is wholly
theirs. Compounding the tragedy
* is the bitter possibility that this
nation, founded on the deepest
principles of reverence for human
life, may yet have to give and
lake lives to preserve its
However, in the tragic rhythm

Filling in Background
Israeli Jets Destroy Syrian Missiles
Iz Siege I to Chair
Defray Beach Campaign
Israeli aircraft destroyed
a Syrian SAM-9 anti-air-
craft missile launcher in
Lebanon earlier this week.
A military spokesman said
the attack was at Deir el-
Beida, east of Beirut and
just north of the Beirut-
Damascus highway. But
government sources in-
sisted it was not in retalia-
tion for the ambush in the
same vicinity in which six
Israeli soldiers were killed
.nd 22 wounded.
The sources said the missile
launcher was knocked out in the
context of standing policy to
destroy such weapons whenever
the Syrians introduce them into
Lebanon in contravention of
agreements. They warned,
however, that Israel would not
pass over the ambush in silence.
Israel would respond to the "one-
sided breach of the ceasefire" at a
time and place of its choice, the
sources said.
THE AMBUSH occured near
Aleh village, a mountain resort
east of Beirut. Israeli forces
placed a curfew on the town while
they combed the area for terror-
ists. It was lifted later. Army
sources said that a number of
suspects had been detained in the
Aleh area for questioning.
The Cabinet met briefly, ap-
parently to discuss the ambush.
The ministers sat as a ministerial
defense committee, the delibera-
tions of which are classified, and
no statements were issued. The
meeting was attended by Chief of
Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan and other
senior officers.
Negotiations are continuing,
meanwhile, for the withdrawal ol
all foreign forces from Lebanon.
U.S. special envoys Philip Habib
and Morris Draper are acting as
mediators in the discussions in-
volving Israel, Lebanon and
Syria. Draper was due here for
meetings with Israeli ministers
and other officials. Habib was in
Damascus over the weekend and
flew from there to Washington.
He is expected to report that
Syria is ready to pull its forces
out of Lebanon.
ONE OF the difficulties is Is-
rael's insistence that the PLO
remnants leave Lebanon before
Israeli and Syrian forces depart.

The Syrians are balking.
Israel Radio quoted "official
sources" here as saying that the
ambush "proved" how vital it
was to get the PLO out of
Lebanon. The sources did not
blame Syria directly for the
attack although it occurred less
than two miles from the ceasefire
line separating Israel troops from
Syrian and PLO forces.
Army sources said the ambush
appeared to have been carefully
planned. The second of two
civilian buses transporting Israe-
li soldiers east from the Beirut
area came under bazooka rocket
and small arms fire from sur-
rounding hills. According to the
army, the attackers apparently
were familiar with Israeli move-
ments, were probably aided by
local townspeople and received
support from PLO bases beyond
the Syrian lines.
The army said that of the 22
wounded soldiers, 11 were ser-
iously hurt, and the rest
sustained only slight wounds.
The ambush was the second
attack on Israeli troops in the
Aleh area since last Friday night.
The earlier one amounted to no
more than an exchange of fire
with no casualties reported.

Israel Protests Meet With PLO in Bonn
BONN (JTA) Isra-
el was disclosed here to
have protested to the West
German government
against a meeting last week
between Peter Corterier,
the West German Vice For-
eign Minister, and the rep-
resentative in Bonn of the
Palestine Liberation Orga-
nization, Abdullah Frangi.
But a West German govern-
ment spokesman said that while
the Corterier-Frangi meeting
took place in the Foreign
Ministry office, it did not consti-
tute a change of West German
policy or represent an official rec-
ognition by Bonn of the PLO.
MEANWHILE. Frangi and a
PLO spokesman on a visit here
were given an enthusiastic
reception by
members of the Bundestag, rep-
resenting various parties. Media
reports and commentaries on the
state-run television networks
reflected a general mood of satis-
faction over Israel's "involve-
ment" in the Beirut massacre.
"Our victims behave very
much like we did," a young Ger-
man said in a television inter-
view. A leading church leader
1 commented, "Our victims pro-
duce yet more victims."
However, the West German gov-
ernment dissociated itself from
allegations by Frangi that Israeli
soldiers in Lebanese uniform
carried out the massacre in
Beirut. A government spokes-
man said the government had no
evidence whatever to substanti-
ate such a charge.
Last week, the West German
government published a very .
strong condemnation of Israel
over the Palestinian massacre in
Beirut and called for an indepen-
dent investigation of the killings.
At the same time, the govern-
ment left open the possibility of
inviting PLO Chief Yasir Arafat
to come to Bonn for talks with
government officials.
SEVERAL thousand demon-
strators protested in Bonn
against the massacre in two Bei- f
rut refugee camps and warmly
applauded Frangi when he
equated Israel with the Nazis.
Many of the demonstrators were
members of the Young Guard of
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt's
Social Democratic Party. The
Young Guard is known for its
anti-Israel attitude.

willingness to recognize Israel in
order to build upon the wave of
worldwide sympathy generated
by the events in Lebanon, Mu-

". If the Palestinian people
were to have the insight and fore-
sight, then they would be able to
capitalize on the international
sympathy and try to translate
this into tangible and positive ac-
tion that would finally lead to the
emancipation and liberation of
the Palestinian people."
The President warned that
"Israel cannot go on occupying
and threatening the Lebanese
people and threatening to inter-

that the recent massacre
"showed that occupation breeds
only atrocities, crime and blood-

Against Approval of Muslim Congress
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has for a
second time asked the
United Nations to investi-
gate the World Muslim
Congress to determine its
eligibility to be accredited
as a Non-Governmental Or-
ganization in view of evi-
J^dence indicating it was re-
"sponsible for distributing
anti-Semitic propaganda.
The first request was dismiss-
ed by Virgi- 'a Sauerwein, chief of
the Non-Guvernmental Organi
izations Unit, after the World
Muslim Congress denied respon-
sibility. She informed ADL Aug.
14 that the UN had been "unable
to find any basis" for taking
Sauerwein, ADL national direc-
tor Nathan Perlmutter sent evi-
dence which he said presents a
prima facie case that the Karachi-
based World Muslim Congress
was responsible for mailing two
racist, neo-Nazi books
."AntiZion" and "The Sue Million
|Reconsidered" to members of
the U.S. Senate and the British
I Parliament.
Such activity, Perlmutter
pointed out, would "violate the
UN Charter," as well as specific
resolutions adopted by the UN
Economic and Social Council to
which the World Muslim Con-
gress is accredited.
The ADL evidence included
the following:
An affidavit from a former
aide to Iowa Sen. Roger Jepsen,
detailing a conversation with the
press attache of the Pakistani
Embassy in Washington who i-
dentified the sender of the books
received by Sen. Jepsen and
other senators as the World
Muslim Congress;
The wrappers in which the
books were sent bore a postmark
designating the World Muslim
Congress as sender, with Karachi
as the mailing address;
Correspondence from
Greville Janner, a British MP,
attesting to the fact that he had
received the books last year in an
envelope with the same World
Muslim Congress postmark;
A letter to ADL from a
British journalist, John Merritt,
stating he was informed by the
Minister of Information at the
Pakistan Embassy in London in
July, 1981, that the postmark on
the envelopes containing the anti-
Semitic mailing to members of
Parliament was that of the World
Muslim Congress.
William Grimstad, wrote "The
Six Million Reconsidered" and
"AntiZion," ADL said. Grimstad
was at one time managing editor
of White Power, a swastika-in-
scribed neo-Nazi publication, and
White Patriot, put out by the Ku

ally settled by immigrants from Iran and Kurdistan, the town

Klux Klan. ADL records show
that in registering with the U.S.
Department of Justice in 1977 as
a foreign agent of Saudi Arabia,
Grimstad admitted he had re-
ceived $20,000 from the Saudis
"in appreciation" for
Later, however, according to
ADL records, Grimstad denied
that he had received the money
from Saudi Arabia and claimed
that it had come from some
anonymous donor whose identity
he did not know.
"The Six Million Reconsider-
ed" contains the claim that the
Nazi massacre of Jews in World
War II was a "myth" perpet-
rated by Jews themselves.
"AntiZion" is a 200-page collec-
tion of alleged quotations, de-
scriptions and summaries of anti-
Semitic views attributed to
various personalities.
The entry for Adolf Hitler de-
scribes him as a German "states-
man" and "visionary" and states
categorically: "There were no
Jews killed in gas chambers."
THE WORLD Muslim Con-
gress edition of "AntiZion" is a
reproduction of one published by
the Noontide Press of Torrance,
Calif, which purveys racist and
anti-Semitic books and publica-
tions, ADL said. Noontide is con-

Ernest I. Japhet, chairman of Bank Leumi
le-Israel, hails American Hadassah as a vital
partner in the upbuilding of Israel Occasion
was a dinner at the Knesset hosted by the
Bank for the National Board of Hadassah,
the American women's Zionist organization,
at its convention in Jerusalem. Japhet noted
that in 1982 Bank Leumi was celebrating its
80th and Hadassah its 70th year in the
service of the Zionist movement. Mrs. Frieda

Rosalie Schechter, national secretary of
Israel Judged Fourth Military Power
Israel, with a population of only 4 million, is the
fourth strongest military power in the world after
the U.S., the Soviet Union and China, said
analysts at the International Institute for
Strategic Studies. Per capita, the Jewish State is
the world's most heavily armed nation and
spends more proportionately on defense than any
other country, including the superpowers the
analysts report.
Last year, Israel's defense expenditure totaled
$7.34 billion or $1,835 for every man, woman and
child, the International Institute said. Israel is
the only Middle East country with its own
defense industry and builds its own tanks, planes
and other weapons.
The Institute, a center for military studies, lists
Israel's armed forces at 136,000 men and women.
But with mobilization, it can field 450,000 trained
personnel within 24 hours in a unique citizen's
army of veterans. "They have developed
equipment that even the Americans don't have,"
the Institute noted.
The World Jewish Congress in Geneva has
called for unreserved condemnation of Pakistan's
refusal last April to admit a humanitarian
European parliamentary delegation solely
because it was led by a Jewish member. Earlier,
the Pakistani representative had proposed that
the General Assembly resolution purporting to
equate Zionism with racism should be the subjeC
of a study.
The issue of racial discrimination was a major
item on the agenda of the current session of the
UN Sub-Commission on the Prevention of
Discrimination and Protection of Minorities. The
WJC, represented by its European Branch
director, Daniel Lack, told the body, "We would
be failing in our duty if we did now draw the
attention of the members of the Sub-Commission
to the revival of the age-old scourge of anti-
Semitism and more particularly racist and
anti-Semitic terrorism."
A police chief, a state attorney general, and the
founder of the Guardian Angels will be among the
speakers at a conference on youth violence to be
held Oct. 14 at Rutgers University in New
Brunswick. N.J. The conference is being spon-
sored by the New Jersey Area of the American
Jewish Committee, the Community Relations
Service of the United States Department of
Justice, and the Northeast Region of the National
Conference of Christians and Jews.
Participants in the conference will include
probation officers, county school superin-
tendents, pre-trial judges, police officers, and
staff members of community and family-service
organizations. The major aim of the meeting, said
Phillip Saperia, director of AJC's New Jersey
Area and one of the conference coordinators, will
be to "identify programs that can either prevent
youth violence or deal with youth offenders in a
constructive manner."
The conference, is an outgrowth of a con-
sultation on youth violence held last spring at:
national AJC headquarters in New York.
The Conference on Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany announces that the filing
deadline for applications to the Claims Conference
Hardship Fund will expire on December 31, 1982
The Hardship Fund was established primarily foi
such Jewish victims of Nazi persecution who
emigrated from Eastern European countries after
1965. Applications may also be filed by such
persecutees who prior to December 31, 1965
resided in countries outside Eastern Europe and
did not file timely claims under the German
Indemnification Law.
The Claims Conference assumed the respon-
sibility for the administration of the Hardship
Fund, which is funded by the German Federal
Government and distributed under German
Government Guidelines.

States permanent representative to the United
Nations, Sunday received the HIAS Liberty

and Jewish philanthropist, served as luncheon
The Liberty Award, the highest honor awarded
by the worldwide refugee and migration agency,

Edwin Shapiro, HIAS president.
Harold Friedman, who has served as president
of HIAS and of the American ORT Federation,

Award tin recognition of "his outstanding
humanitarian service for the past quarter-
century." The presentation to Friedman was
made by Leonard Seidenman, HIAS executive

(JTA) The Washington
representatives of two Jew-

against bringing back

defeat of the effort in the
Senate as a victory over

THE EFFORT by Sen. Jesse
Helms permitting officially sanctioned
prayer in public schools to a bill
raising the national debt ceiling
ended when the Senate by a 51-48
vote rejected a move to end a
week-long filibuster by op-
ponents of school prayer.
Sen. Edward Zorinsky (D.,
Neb.) was the only one of the
Senate's six Jews who voted with
the minority in an attempt to
break the filibuster.
Saperstein and Pearl, in a
thank you letter to the Senators
who led the filibuster, expressed
the hope that the vote would end
attempts of the religious end new
rights groups to curtail constitu-
tional freedom and limit the ju-
risdiction of the Supreme Court
and other federal courts in cases
involving school prayer. But
Helms said he would reintroduce

gress was able to prevent the
courts from declaring the law un-
constitutional, as the Helms'bill
provided, then freedom of speech,
press and assembly were as much
in danger as the separation of
church and state.
But they stressed the proposal
was also "wrong because it would
have brought back government-
sanctioned and sponsored prayer,
violated the religious rights of
children and teachers, trivialized
prayer and have a traumatic
impact on any children who did
not want to pray with those
words, in that manner."

Shamir, Cheysson Said to Have
'Open and Cordial' Meeting
Israeli Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir met with
Foreign Minister Claude
Cheysson of France for one
hour last week. Their en-
counter, at the United Na-
tions Plaza Hotel, was de-
scribed later as "open and
But according to a spokesman
for Shamir, the Israeli Foreign
Minister accused France of being
more negative toward Israel than
any other European nation, de-
manded that it change its policies
' toward Israel and warned that
pursuit of a one-sided Middle
. East policy would, in the final
- analysis, only harm French inter-
' ests. According to the spokes-
man, Cheysson did not reply di-
rectly to the charges.
CHEYSSON WAS the first
foreign diplomat with whom
Shamir met at the start of his
three-week visit to New York to
attend.the current session of the
UN General Assembly. Shamir
addressed the General Assembly
last Thursday evening.
His spokesman said the Israeli
Foreign Minister spoke openly
about Israel's displeasure with
recent French Middle Eastern
policy, especially as regards the
Lebanese crisis. Shamir told
Cheysson, the spokesman siad,
' that any actions taken by France
in pursuit of its Middle East
policy without consultation with
Israel or understanding of Isra-
el's positions were doomed to
He said France's negative
attitude was displayed whan it
was the only Western European
country to vote in the Security
Council for sanctions against Is-
rael during the Lebanese war.
While the French diplomat did
not respond directly to these and
other charges, he said that
France would not support radical
anti-Israel moves at the UN, such
as any attempt to suspend Israel
from the world organisation,
Shamir's spokesman said.
ACCORDING TO the spokes-
man, the massacre in west Beirut
was not the main subject of the
Shamir-Cheysson dialogue. He
said Shamir explained Israel's
position and told Cheysson that
m Israel's view, the situation in
Lebanon is now progressing, and
Beirut is no longer the interna-
tional terrorist center it was.
Cheysson was reported to have
said that France wants all foreign
forces to leave Lebanon and to
find a solution to the Palestinian
problem. He also expressed his
country's positive attitude
toward President Reagan's Mid-
dle East plan announced on Sept.
1. Shamir said Israel will leave
Lebanon, but first there must be
security arrangements in the 40-
kilometer zone of Lebanon north
of the Israeli border.
Cheysson replied that this was
a legitimate concern of Israel and
suggested that one way Israel's
security could be assured would
be to have a multinational force
stationed in the zone. Shamir
rejected that idea, saying Israel
was not interested in a multina-
tional force and preferred to have
an arrangement with the Leba-
nese army.

Remembering Munich
It Was 10 Years Ago That Eleven Died
Italy's Trade Unions Boycott
Israeli Ships and Airline
The month of September is
remembered in the world of
sports as "Black Septem-
ber." On Tuesday, Septem-
ber 5, 1972 which corres-
ponds to Sept. 14 this year,
according to the Hebrew
calendar) PLO terrorists
massacred 11 Israeli ath-
letes and coaches in Munich
during the Olympic Games.
The tragedy, which occurred
just four days before the begin-
ning of the Jewish New Year of
5733, was one of the worst acts of
savagery in the bloody history of
PLO terrorism. The entire West-
ern world was aghast at this
atrocity. The huge Olympic
stadium was the scene of grief
and mourning the day after as
80,000 people from 120 nations
father to pay homage to the slain
I. AU flags were at half-mast.
AFTERWARDS there was a
pitiful attempt on the part of the
International Olympic Commit-
tee, headed by Avery Brundage,
to keep the 1972 Games going
with sad encouragement from the
Israeli Olympic contingent which
felt that despite their loss in
players the Games had to con-
tinue and survive.
The feeling on the part of both
the International Committee and
the Israeli contingent was that a
handful of terrorists would not be
allowed to disrupt the "Olympic
spirit.'" The Israelis felt, further-
more, that stopping the Games
would fulfill the objective of the
terrorists in their massacre of the
Israeli 11.
Attempts were made earlier
this month to get the various
news wire services and TV net-
works to commemorate the tra-
Kedy. To their credit, the ABC-
TV network did have Hugh
Downs on his ''20-20" program
do a feature on Munich 10 years
later. Here and there around the
country newspapers recalled the
incident and some publications,
like the Philadelphia Daily News,
really did an excellent job in re-
calling the event.
THE STORY of what tran-
spired is forgotten, or becomes
hazy, in the course of time. It
should be recalled that the initial
attack on the Olympic Village
where the Israelis were housed
occurred in the early hours of
Sept. 5.
The surprise attack was not
entirely complete. Moshe Wein-
berg, a 33-year-old wrestling
coach, apparently managed to
hold the door to one of the apart-
ments closed against the killers
long enough for a substantial
number of his fellow athletes to
escape. Weinberg was killed, and
his body was thrown out of the
apartment by the terrorists. A
second Israeli, Joseph Romano,
33, a weight lifter, was fatally
wounded and died a few hours
The terrorists took nine Is-
raelis as hostages and demanded
a jet plane take them and the Is-
raelis to an Arab capital and a
guarantee of safe passage to an
airport where the plane would be
awaiting them. The killers also
demanded a pledge from Israel
that it would release some 200
Arab terrorists who were in
AFTER 24 hours of fruitless
negotiations between the terror-
ists and German authorities, the
Germans agreed to the terrorists'
demands that they be flown out
of the country. What followed
was what Mayer Georg Krena-
witter of Munich was later to de-
scribe as "an awful carnage. I will
never forget it as long as I live,"
The German authorities con-
ceived an ill-fated plan of action
They tried to ambush the terror-
ists at Furstenfeldbruck where a
jet supplied by Lufthansa was
According to the accounts by
Krenawitter and the Bavarian
Minister of Interior, Bruno Merk,
who witnessed the events, a gun-
battle broke out durjng which one
pilot was wounded.
Four of the five terrorists were
killed or committed suicide and a
fifth was gunned down by police.
Before they died, two of the ter-
rorists killed their hostages. At
the end of 24 hours, 17 people had
died; the 11 Israeli athletes, one
German policeman and the five
THE 11 WHOSE lives were
snuffed out were, in addition to
Weinber6 and Romano, David
Berger, 28, an American who had
competed in the Maccabiah
Games as a representative of the
U.S. and who had settled in Is-
rael in 1969 with the intention of
representing the Jewish State in
the Olympics; Andre Spitzer, 45,
a weightlifting instructor; Yosef
Guteureund, 41, the wrestling
referee; Yacov Springer, 51,
weightlifting instructor; Zeev
Freedman, '.8, a weightlifter;
Eliezer Haltin, 28, a wrestler;
Mark Slavin, 18, a wrestler who
had "escaped" from the Soviet
Union only three months prior to
the Olympics; Amitzur Shapira,
32, the track coach; and Kehat
Schorr, 53, the coach of Israel's
highly regarded team of marks-
Could the massacre have been
forestalled if the German
authorities did not act the way
they did, or if then Israeli Pre-
mier Golda Meir had acceded to,
the demands of the terrorists, if
the terrorists had accepted the
offer of the Munich police chief to
become a substitute hostage for
the Israeli 11, or if there had been
tighter 'security at the Olympic
village? History is filled with
such ifs. Who was, in the last
analysis responsible for the
IT MIGHT be well to recall the
words by Dr. Gustav Heine-
mann, who was the President of
the Federal Republic at the time.
Speaking at the memorial service
he declared: "Those countries
who do not put a stop to the
criminal activities of the terror-
ists bear the real responsibility"
for the massacre.
These words ought to be, must
be, remembered. For 10 years
later, almost to the day, the man
who engineered the massacre,
PLO Chief Yasir Arafat, arrived
at the Vatican and had a private
audience with Pope John Paul II.
This is an irony of history, but an
irony that should give pause to
those who speak of peace but
confer with assassins.
ROME (WNS) Two Israeli
container ships were stranded
Sept. 23 in the Livorno port and
76 passengers on an' El Al flight
had to fend for themselves at the
Rome airport because of a boy-
cott by the powerful federation of
Italy's three major trade unions
as an aftermath of the massacre
of Palestinian refugees in two
camps near Beirut.
Normal airport service to
transport El Al passengers from
the landing point of the planes to
the airport terminal and in
handling of luggage of pas-
sengers has been suspended until
October. A spokesman for one of
the three unions said the union-
ized workers "refuse to furnish
sort of assistance to these
flights, with the purpose of boy.
cotting contacts with Israel."
One result of the boycott was
to leave Israeli ships with no
facilities for loading or unloading
cargo. The first ships hit by the
boycott were the "Zim Tokyo"
and the "Zim Marseilles."
There was no indication how
long the ship boycott would last,
or what would happen to han-
dling of El Al flights to Rome af-
ter October, but the union federa-
tion said it would meet
soon to consider widening
boycotts against Israel on a na-
tionwide scale. The unions in-

Soviet Jewish Activist Arrested
Kuchubievsky, of Novosibirsk, a
veteran emigration activist, was
arrested Sept. 12 and charged

known to be false which defame

penalty of three years imprison-

Watt Says
U.S. Might Stop Being Friendly
(A Seven Arts Feature)
During the summer dog days,
Interior Secretary James G.
Watt lit a fuse of emotion by
warning American Jews that if
the liberals among them decided
to oppose his efforts to reduce
U.S. dependency upon foreign
crude oil energy, Washington
might stop being such a good
friend of Israel.
Instead of sending this threat
direct to American Jews or even
through the State Department,
Mr. Watt communicated it to
Moshe Arens, Israel's ambassa-
dor to the U.S. Thus did he com-
pound a stupidity.
Eventually, Mr. Watt went
into a huddle with Jewish com-
munity relations people and
downgraded those he called "fat
Japs" but also referred to certain
fellow-Americans as "vultures,"
Judas goats," and "garbage."
Or the boorish stunt of Agricul-
ture Secretary Earl Butz six
years ago may come to mind:
President Jerry Ford had to give
Mr. Butz his walking papers after
Catholics and Americans of
Italian descent protested that
cabinet officer's folly of remark-
ing about the Pope's views on
birth control that "he no plays
the game, he no make da rule."
Now let's grant that Jim Watt
doesn't strike with a club. He
uses a scalpel. For example, after
assuring us that his critics aren't
credible, he passes the judgment
that there are only two kinds of
people in this country liberals
and Americans. Or when he finds
members of groups protecttive of
the environment coming at him,
he dismisses them as "hired
guns," adding that "for the most
part, their agenda is for member-
ship, dollars, and headlines."
These "hired guns" include the
Wilderness Society, National
Wildlife Federation, National
Audubon Society, Humane Soci-
ety of the U.S., and the Izaak
Walton League. Some report
their membership rolls burgeon-
ing thanks to the Watt attacks.
All are keenly aware of ecological
preservation alarms sounded by
such distinguished scientists as
the late Dr. Rene Dubois and
Rachel Carson. They love the
land, its gifts of beauty, its
physical treasures, its capacity as
refuge from city smog and
frenzied pace of living.
A coalition of Americans op-
posed to the rape of such natural
bounty recently sent to Wash-
ington a petition signed by
1,100,000 people the largest
such appeal ever addressed to
Congress urging Watt's
In the face of this and scores of
other complaints, Mr. Watt
retains his composure, laughs off
the effort to have him known as
"the fox guarding the chicken
coop," and recites with passion
his conception of his duty: "One
of the charges Jesus Christ has
given us is to occupy the land
until He returns." Watt acknowl-
edges he has no exact date in
mind for the Second Coming, but
Soldiers, Reservists
Call For Withdrawal
group of anti-war reserve officers
and soldiers calling themselves
the Yeah Gvul (Three's a Limit)
organization, have presented a
petition signed by 1,000 persons
requesting Premier Menachem
Begin and Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon to recall all Israeli
soldiers from Lebanon.
The petition, which the organi-
zers said contained the signature
of 150 Israel Defense Force of-
ficers, including two lieutenant
colonels, and hundreds of reserve
and regular soldiers, said: "There
is no military solution to the
Palestinian problem ... we
swore to defend the State of
Isreal and not a new order in a
country which is not ours."
meanwhile he's busy undoing the
history of 50 years of good works
for environmental advance, be-
ginning with Teddy Roosevelt
and G if ford Pinchot and extend-
ing down to the dismal present.
Many members of President
Reagan's all-Republican Task
Force On The Environment
lament Watt's stewardship. They
are saddened by the move to
enable corporations to lease pro-
perty in and around our national
parks, the destruction of wilder-
ness land, and potential harm to
the fishing industry by offshore
drilling for oil, regression in the
battle for clean air and control of
toxic substances.
Many are shocked by the ef-
forts to gut the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency by
Anne M. Gorsuch, that unit's di-
rector. Mrs. Gorsuch enlisted the
help of the Mountain States
Legal Foundation when, as a
young Colorado legislator, she
sued the agency she now heads in
her determination to buck the
Clean Air Act. Mr. Watt used to
be President and chief counsel of
the Mountain States Legal Foun-
dation. That unit, with agents
from Shell and Exxon, was the
brainchild of Joe Coora, Colorado
beer tycoon who has helped to
bankroll the John Birch Society.
This dismal recitation may help
you understand why Ann Gor-
such recently hired a friend, Don
Ferguson, at $221 a day, as a
public relations expert charged
with the responsibility of
polishing the blurred image of
what's left of the Environmental
Protection Agency.
Meanwhile, guess who the peo-
ple are working to reduce U.S.
dependency upon foreign crude
oil energy. They include members
of every Jewish community
relations agency in America.
Their research and action for
energy conservation is exem-
plary. Engaged in this enterprise
are Jewish liberals, the cause of

W. Germany's Chancellor Kohl:
Post-War Generation Leader
BONN Helmut Kohl
is now Chancellor of the
Federal Republic of Ger-
many. The Christian
Democratic leader was
elected on Oct. 1 in a "con-
structive no-confidence
vote" that toppled Helmut
Schmidt, the Social Demo-
crat who has been Chancel-
lor since 1974.
Kohl, 52, ia the sixth and
youngest Chancellor in the 33-
year history of the Federal Re-
public of Germany. He is viewed
a member of the "new genera-
tion" in West German politics.
Since he was only 15 when World
War II ended, he is close to being
a member of the postwar genera-
tion. As Chairman of the con-
servative Christian Democratic
Party, Kohl worked hard to at- r
tract youthful voters and
modernize the image of the party
that governed the country during
the first 20 years of its existence.
In the past six years, the party's
membership has more than
doubled, from 300,000 to 700,000.
In 1976, as CDU Chancellorship
candidate, Kohl won a 48.6 per-
cent plurality of the popular vote
not enough to unseat Sch-
midt's coalition of Social and
Free Democrats.
Germany's youngest Chancellor
caps a career of impressive suc-
cesses. He was the youngest
deputy elected to the Rhineland-
Palatinate state parliament; in
1969, he became the youngest of
Germany's State Prime Minis-
ters; and in 1973, he became his
Chancellor Kohl
party's youngest national 'chair-
man, succeeding Rainer Barzel.
Kohl was born in Ludwigsha-
fen, Rhineland-Palatinate, on
April 30, 1930. He studied law
and political science at the uni-
versities of Frankfurt and
Heidelberg, where he received his
PhD in 1958. He is married and
the father of two children.
Kohl is the fourth Christian
Democratic Chancellor of the
Federal Republic. The first Chan-
cellor, Konrad Adenauer, led the
CDU to victory in four elections.
It was Adenauer who set the
country on its course of commit-
ment to and cooperation with the
West. Other Christian Demo-
cratic Chancellors were Ludwig
Erhard, the father of the German
"economic miracle," and Kurt
Georg Kiesinger. Willy Brandt
and Helmut Schmidt have been
Social Democratic Chancellors
and the SPD, in coalition with
the Liberals or Free Democrats,
has been governing the country
since 1969.

He Won't Negotiate
With Israel's Begin
The policies of the United '
States toward Israel have
been strongly criticized by
King Hussein of Jordan
and Palestinian Liberation
Organization Chief Yasir
Arafat in separate inter-
Hussein, in an interview pub-
lished in the international edition
of Newsweek magazine, but not
in the domestic edition, accused
the Israeli government of respon-
sibility for the massacre of Pales-
tinian civilians at the Shatila and
Sabra refugee camps in west
Beirut. He charged that it was an
Israeli plan to encourage a "neg-
ative reaction" to President Rea-
gan's peace initiative outlined on
Sept. 1.
"THE ISRAELIS have a long
history of this type of thing,"
Hussein said. "Maybe we all
needed this kind of shock to
realize what is happening and
what has happened for a long
period of time." Hussein said,
"Israel created these atrocities
with American arms and Ameri-
can aid. I think that the United
States should reassess its atti-
tude toward a monster that it has
helped to create."
Arafat, meanwhile, in an inter-
view on the CBS-TV "60
Minutes" program, charged the
U.S. with complicity in the mas-
sacre of the Palestinians at the
refugee camps. "What has been
done in Beirut and in Lebanon
was not an Israeli aggression,"
the PLO leader said. 7IThi8 is an
American conspiracy against the
Arafat added that he would be
willing to conduct a dialogue for a
Palestinian homeland with "All
the democratic Jews who are
living in Israel and outside Is-
rael." He said he would open a
dialogue with the Reagan ad-
ministration provided it dropped
its conditions for such a dialogue
which include PLO recognition of
Israel's right to exist and accept-
ance of United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338.
AT THE same time, Lebanese
President Amin Gemayel said the
first step toward the restoration
of Lebanese sovrerignty and in-
dependence is the withdrawal of
Israeli military forces from pre-
dominantly Moslem west Beirut
"We have to recover our sov-
ereignty in our capital, and from
the capital, we could begin dis-
cussions for the withdrawal "of
all foreign forces from Lebanon,
Gemayel said in an interview on
the ABC-TV "This Week With
David Brinkley" program.
"Lebanon needs to recover its
sovereignty and independence,"
he said. "You can't reach this
goal without obtaining the with-
drawal of the Palestinians, the
Syrians and the Israelis from
The interview was Gemayel's
first with a U.S. television net-
work since being sworn into office
to succeed Elias Sarkis to a six-
year term. Gemayel, a member of
the Christian Phalangist Party,
was elected after his younger
brother, Bashir, was killed along
with 25 other Phalangist Party
members in an explosion in the
party headquarters in east Beirut
just days before Bashir was to be
sworn into office as the new Pres-
ident of Lebanon.
in the televised interview from
Beirut, said it was still too early
to discuss a peace treaty with Is-
rael because such an agreement
would first have to be discussed
among Lebanese government of-
ficials and then approved by the
Lebanese Parliament. "But what
I can assure you is that I am for
real peace," Gemayel said. "We
need to reach a real peace, not an
artificial peace."
In a related development.
President Reagan was urged to
cut off military and economic aid
to Israel by leading officials of
the United Presbyterian Church
as a demonstration of the Ad-
ministration's concern over Is-
raeli government policies in
In a letter to Reagan sent by
James Costen, moderator of the
Church's General Assembly, and
its stated clerk, William
Thompson, the officials urged the
President "to take the necessary
actions to halt military and eco-
nomic aid to Israel until such a
time as the government of Israel
is prepared to withdraw not just
from west Beirut but from all of
Lebanon and to start meaningful
negotiations for a diplomatic
solution to the problems of the

the Jews not forced to remain
Jews; on the contrary, every
single one of them is confronted
with a hundred temptations and
incentives to become less and leas
Jewish. Materially-inclined Jews
find satisfaction in the unlimited
possibilities opened to them by
their economic and political pro-
gress; the idealistically minded
can commit themselves to the
struggle for lofty ideas in this
difficult, hard, bitter era that is
not without a certain splendor.
Today the teak is to find entirely
new incentives for being Jewish.
Through long experience we have
learned to remain Jewish in bad
times; now we must learn some-
thing harder: to remain Jewish in
good times.
THIS APPLIES to the State
of Israel just as much as to the
Jewish minorities in the Dias-
pora. The danger of becoming
satisfied with what we have al-
- ready achieved, with the glory of
statehood, the impressive mili-
tary victories, the role we play in
the world, small as it is, with our
representation on international
bodies, appointing ministers, be-
ing called "Your Excellency,"
and exchanging ambassadors, is
a very serious danger for Israel
today, twenty years after the
birth of the state.
Everything in history haa its
price. The greater the success,
the higher the price and the
greater the danger. My genera-
tion secured victory in the
epochal struggle for civil rights,
but if we are honest with our-
selves and do not flinch from
facts, bitter and alarming as they
may be, we face a paradox. I am
convinced that the existence of
the Jewish people, including the
Jewish state, will be in greater
danger than it ever was through-
out all the centuries of perse-
cution and suffering if we rest on
the laurels our successes have
brought us.

Behind The Headlines
Arab-Jewish Relations
The delicate relations
between Arabs and Jews in
Israel suffered another
blow last week as thou-
sands of Israeli Arabs
staged a general strike, the
first in six years.
Six years ago, the Arabs in Is-'
rael declared a general strike in
protest against the confiscation
of land in the Galilee for mainly
Jewish development projects. Al-
though the Arabs persisted in
noting "Land Day" every Mar.
30 since then, they are careful not
to strain relations with the Jew-
ish majority and refrained from
holding strikes.
sacre of Palestinians at the Sabra
and Shatila refugee camps in
west Beirut, the moderate ele-
ments among the Israeli Arabs
were pushed aside or else joined
hands with the radicals.
The rage against the massacre
swept through all the segments
of the Arab population. It was
not accidental that the decision
to call a general strike last week
was taken unanimously at a
meeting of Arab mayors which
was hosted by Mayor Ibrahim
Nimer Hussein of Shefaram, a
Undoubtedly, the orotests
which engulfed the country fol-
lowing the massacre provided the
legitimacy the Arab population
needed to take to the streets.
Although no one said so outright,
there was a strong feeling among
the Arabs that any protests and
demonstrations the Jews could
stage, the Arabs could do better.
THE TRUTH, however, is
that the Arab pains over the car-
nage were much deeper than
those felt by the Jews. The in-
habitants of the refugee camps in
Lebanon are members of Israeli
Arab families. As the names of
the victims began to reach Israel,
many families went into mourn-
ing. :
In addition, while Israeli Arabs
generally refrained from overly
vocal protests against the war in
Lebanon partly because of
shock and partly because 6f fear
of challenging the Jewish majori-
ty in time of war, the massacre
caused the Arabs to lose all their
The general strike took on
violent overtones, especially in
Nazareth, which, with 50,000
residents, is the largest Arab
town in Israel proper. Police had
to use force, including firearms,
to disperse the demonstrators
there. When it was all over, 49 ci-
vilians had been wounded, one of
them seriously, and 30 policemen
were wounded.

inquiry commission to investi-
gate what was said to be ex-
cessive force, but the police de-
partment instead appointed a de-
partmental inquiry commission,
standard procedure in cases
where firearms are used against
Arabs also clashed with police
elsewhere in the country and
demonstrations spread for the
first time to centers where there
are small numbers of Arabs, such
as Haifa and Jaffa, although in
those places there were no reports
of anyone being hurt. The end re- ,
suit of the day of demonstrations
was a widening rift between
Arabs and Jews, particularly be-
tween Arabs and the Jewish gov-
The government as a whole
was fairly silent about the unrest
among the country's 680,000
Arab citizens. Interior Minister
Yosef Burg and Premier
Menachem Begins advisor on
Arab affairs Binyamin Gur-Arye
merely said they shared the grief
of Israel's Arabs over the massa-
cre. President Yitzhak Navon
said he understood the Arabs'
feelings, but urged them to re-
strain themselves.
THE RAKAH (Communist)
Party is the immediate benefi-
ciary of the renewed crisis. The
party, which is predominantly
Arab, was subjected to serious
criticism by Israel's Arabs
during the war in Lebanon be-
cause of the Soviet Union's
failure to come to the aid of the
PLO. But in the aftermath of the
Beirut massacre, Rakah realized
that it could act to change its
tarnished image, and it rose to
the challenge.
Communist organizers worked
feverishly to help stage the
demonstration and many Arabs
who had shunned the party pre-
viously now rallied around its
flag. One of the demonstrators
wounded in the general strike
was Am in Zayyad, 14, the son of
Nazareth's Communist Mayor
Tawfik Zayyad.
The Communists, who lost a
seat in the Knesset to the Labor
Alignment in last year's election,
are not losing any time in prepar-
ing for the next election. They are
honing a more militant anti-gov-
ernment stand in an effort to
counter the criticism by Israeli
Arab nationalists that they have
been too moderate. If Rakah con-
tinues to pursue this policy it
stands a good chance of displac-
ing the nationalists among the
Neo-Nazi Laws
BONN (JTA) Justice
Minister Juergen Schmude of the
Social Democratic Party has
drafted legislation to tighten
laws against neo-Nazi activities
in West Germany. His legisla-
tion, which has been discussed in
a Bundestag subcommittee and
presented to the press, calls for
empowering state prosecutors to
bring to trial any person who
denies publicly that the Holo-
caust occurred or that the Nazis
committed genocide.
It would also ban the import
and distribution of Nazi emblems
and other propaganda material in
the country. But the legislation
does not include a ban on the dis-
tribution and sale of Nazi books
and records which orginated in
Nazi Germany, such as Hitler's
Mein Kampf. A proposed ban on
such material was dropped fol-
lowing protests by scientists and
academicians that it would curb

Phalangist Admits Role in Massacre
By JTA Report
TEL AVIV A Phalangist
officer has admitted on Israel
Television that he had partici-
pated in the massacre of Pales-
tinians in the Sabra and Shatila
camps in Beirut and said he
planned to kill more Palestinians.
The 24-year-old officer, identi-
fied only as Michael, said the Is-
raelis could not have stopped the
slaughter in the camps." Nothing
could have stopped it. We were
determined to kill as many of
them as we could," he said.
He admitted to having killed
about 15 himself explaining that
"the Palestinians devasted our
country and tortured and mur-
dered our people for years. I
myself was cruelly tortured once.
We shall continue to kill the Pal-
estinians until we get them out of
our country."

Rustln Says Israel
Bears Responsibility
NEW YORK Declaring that
Israel had fallen into a "very ugly
trap" when it entered west Bei-
rut, a leading Black civil rights
leader said that "Israel does in-
deed bear a degree of responsibil-
ity" for the massacre of hundreds
of Palestinian civilians at the
Shatila and Sabra refugee camps
in the Lebanese capital.
But in an address to some 125
leaders of the United Jewish Ap-
peal women's campaign advisory
board of Greater New York, Bay-
nard Rustin maintained that the
degree of responsibility is not be-
cause of any direct Israeli in-
volvement in the massacre, but
because, when Israeli forces
moved into west Beirut following
the assassination of President-
Elect Bashir Gemayel of Lebanon
in September, they took upon
themselves the responsibility to
maintain order and security for
the population.
205 New Settlements
During Past 5 Years
JERUSALEM A total of

report to the World Zionist Orga-
nization Executive by Matityahu
Drobless, co-chairman of the
WZO's settlement department.
Drobless predicted that be-
tween the next World Zionist
Congress, scheduled to be held in
Jerusalem Dec. 7-14 and the one
after that, approximately 10,000
more families will be living in set-
tlements. World Zionist Con-
gresses are held at four year in-
tervals. Drobless said more set-
tlement efforts should be made in
Synagogue Bombed
In Milan
ROME A bomb was hurled
from a passing car in front of the
main entrance of Milan's chief
synagogue last Friday morning.
The building was damaged but
there was no injuries. Several
hurs later, news agencies received
anonymous phone calls from a
group calling itself "Communist
Fire Fighters" which claimed
responsibility for the incident.
The Milan Jewish community
issued a statement in which it
accused the Italian press of being
indirectly responsible because of
its anti-Israel stance.
Begin, Sharon Popularity Holds
Premier Menachem Begin and
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon
have sustained relatively small
declines in popularity since the
west Beirut massacre despite
intense criticism leveled against
them in Israel, the lastest public
opinion poll shows.
The poll, conducted for the
monthly magazine Monition by
the Dahaf Research Institute,
found Begin's popularity rating
down from 82 percent to 72 per-
cent since the beginning of Sen-
tember. Unfavorable opinion rose
in that period from 15 to 27 per-
cent. Sharon dropped in the polls
from 78 to 64 percent favorable.
His unfavorable rating increased
from 17 to 35 percent.
The poll indicated that if elec-
tions were held now, Likud would
win 55 Knesset seats, six fewer
than it now holds, and the Labor
Alignment would gain five seats
for a total of 43. Likud would still
be the majority party and would
be able to govern with the six
seats of the National Religious
Party making up its loss.

Anti-Jewish Attacks
Still Continue
(A Seven Arts Feature)
The American Jewish com-
munity was deeply shocked by
news reports on the eve of the
Rosh Hashanah holiday that a
horrifying barbaric massacre of
Palestinian men, women and
children had occurred in the
Shatila and Sabra refugee camps
in West Beirut. The wanton and
savage killing of innocent people
strikes to the heart of Jewish
consciousness for it is the Jews
who for centuries have been
suffering from massacres and
While the massacre received
the widespread attention it de-
serves from the international
community, it is also with
sadness that the Jewish New
Year brought again to the surface
the ugly scenario of international
terrorism striking against Jews
in Paris and Brussels. Again
another year goes by and Jews
continue to be targets indiscrim-
inately by Palestinian terrorists
who spill unremorsefully in-
nocent Jewish blood on the
streets of European cities.
In Paris, some 50 people, in-
cluding 45 non-Jewish students
were wounded by an explosion
which blew up the car of an Israe-
li diplomat on New Year's Eve.
In Brussels, a man fired a sub-
machinegun at worshippers
leaving the city's main syna-
gogue on the first day of Rosh
Hashanah. Jews throughout the
world prayed this year behind
police cordons with snipers ready
to protect them from further ter-
rorist attacks.
1 From all records of the Beirut
tragedy, and from statements by
some officials, Israel was at least
morally responsible for the
massacre at the refugee camps.
There is no evidence or proof that
Israel was physically involved in
the slaughter. However in the
case of wanton attacks against
Jews in western Europe by Pal-
estinian terrorists, these heinous
crimes can be traced back phy-
sically to the PLO and those who
were either trained by them or
who accepted their terrorist ide-
ology. The lesson that needs to be
driven home time and again is
that the identifiable terrorism of
the PLO and their ilk must be
stopped by all legal means avail-
able to governments which are
now paying homage to Yasir
Arafat. Laws, after all, are made
to be enforced, not ignored.
