and Betty Stone as co-chairmen
of the Lion of Judah Division.
A $5,000 minimum contribu-

Mrs Baer said, "The symbol of
the Lion of Judah represents
strength and integrity. The
strength of the commitment of
these women will help the cam-
paign to fulfill its goal. I am tre-
mendously excited with the
quality of leadership. Betty and
Mildred led the way last year
when the Lion of Judah Division
was established. Now with Edith
as a co-chairman, I am sure that
this year will surpass last year's
percent of increase." i
Prior to the establishment of
this division, there were eight
women giving in this category.
At the close of last year's cam-
paign there were 22 women at
this level of giving. With the 1983
campaign now beginning, four
new women have already been
added to the Lion of Judah

Shamir Foresees Tough Negotiations
Israeli Foreign Minister

he expected to have
"tough" negotiations on
"many important issues"
when he met last week in

tration officials.
He said the main topic of dis-
cussion in his meetings with Ad-

situation in Lebanon and the ar-

BERMAN addressed a press

not disclose the contents of their
talk, however, and refrained from
making any comments on the in-
ternal political situation in Israel,
particularly the many calls for
the resignation of Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon.
Timerman's Son in Jail
TEL AVIV (JTA) Daniel Tinerman, son of
Jacobo Timerrnan, the former Argentinian journalist
imprisoned for several years by the Argentine authorities,
has been sentenced to 28 days in an army prison for refus-
ing to serve inside Lebanon, on grounds of conscience.
Daniel Timerman, 31, who said he had served in Leb-
anon for one week but had been "shocked by what he had
seen," stated that he was fully prepared to serve any-
where within I srael.
HIS FATHER said that is was strange that in a coun-
try where a young man or woman could get out of army
service on grounds of religion, his son could not refuse to
serve on grounds of conscience. He said he had left Argen-
tina to avoid such practices.
Julius Berman
Berman insisted that Ameri-
can Jews were, as always, deeply
committed to the security of Is-
rael and took pride in Israel's
democracy. The commitment to
Israel's security went beyond
personal and political divisions,
he said. "There is no split, no rift,
no division of the love for Israel,"
Berman declared.
He said he had told Begin that
the Jewish people in particular
were deeply distressed by events
in Lebanon, specifically the mas-
sacre of Palestinians in two west

6 Withdrawal Points-lf War m Lebanon Is Not To Be in Vain
The Cabinet last week
spelled out the conditions
for the withdrawal of Is-
rael's forces from Lebanon.
In a six-point resolution it
adopted after a four-hour
meeting, the Cabinet de-
'' I srael continues to strive for a
peace treaty with Lebanon. The
government of Israel proposes to
open negotiations immediately
for the evacuation of all foreign
forces from all Lebanese terri-
tory. The first to leave Lebanon
will be the terrorists, who, even
after the evacuation of their or-
ganizations and headquarters
from Beirut, are still concen-
trated in the Bekaa and in the
northern part of the country.
"The Syrian army and the IDF
will leave Lebanon simultaneous-
ly. All Israeli prisoners, the miss-
ing, and the bodies of the fallen
will be handed over to the IDF
before the evacuation. Prior to
the evacuation, security arrange-
ments will be established which
will guarantee that Lebanon will
not again revert to becoming a
base and launching ground for
aggressive acts of hostile forces
against Israel."
CABINET secretary Dan
Meridor told reporters after the
Cabinet meeting that a peace
agreement with Lebanon was not
a precondition for the withdrawal
of all foreign forces from Leba-
non. However, during the Cabi-
net meeting Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon insisted that a peace
agreement should not be viewed
as a gift given by Lebanon to Is-
rael but as a mutual defense pact
needed by both countries to as-
sure their security.
He charged that the United
States was hampering Israel's ef-
fort to achieve a peace treaty by
trying to prevent direct contacts
between the governments of Is-
rael and Lebanon. Sharon had
made a similar charge three days
earlier when he told a meeting of
former members of the Irgun: "If
there is an element which today is
hindering the move towards an
I srael-Lebanon peace agreement,
it is the United States."
He charged that the U.S. was
thus acting in its own interests,
adding: "I do not want to elabor-
ate at the moment." Sharon's at-
tack on the U.S. was seen as the
sharpest yet by a government of-

Stunned and Angry
Italians Shun Condolences
( And DAVID LANDAU (Jeruaalem)
Italy's stunned and angered Jewish community
mourned the victims of last week terrorist attack on
worshippers outside of Rome's main synagogue as a police
dragnet sought the perpetrators who killed a two-year-old
child and wounded 37 other persons, many of them
The synagogue, where
thousands of Jews gathered
for a prayer vigil
remained under heavy
guard and security was
tightened around synago-
gues and other Jewish
institutions in Italy. Mes-
sages of condolence and
condemnation poured in
from all over the world, in-
cluding statements from
the Vatican and the top
Italian leadership.
BUT ITALY'S Jews would not
be mollified. They blamed the
outrage directly on the audience
granted by Pope John Paul II
last month to Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chief Yasir
They also denounced President
Sandro Pertini and Foreign
Minister Emilio Colombo who re-
ceived Arafat and the harsh criti-
cism of Israel by the Italian
media following the massacre of
Palestinians in west Beirut.
Many Jews saw this as an ill-dis-
guised campaign of anti-Semi-
tism which created a climate for
violence against Jews. State-
ments by Israel's two chief rabbis
and by the Cabinet in Jerusalem
seemed to confirm that view.
The terrorists struck at noon,
Rome time, Saturday, hurling
hand grenades and firing
machineguns into a crowd of
some 500 people attending Sab-
bath and Simchat Torah services
at the main synagogue, an histo-
rical landmark in the old Roman
AMONG THE 50 children in
the crowd, two-year-old Stefano
Tache was killed instantly and
his sister was seriously wounded,
Eyewitnesses described the ter-
rorists as five to seven men of
"Mediterranean" type. Descrip-
tions such as "dark skinned" and
"swarthy" were given.
Police set up road-blocks
throughout the city. According
to unconfirmed reports Saturday,
three suspects two men and a
woman were arrested for ques-
tioning. But the search con-
Italy's Premier Biovanni
Spadolini and several ministers
rushed to the scene of the attack.
By then, most of the victims had
been taken to nearby hospitals.
But blood still spotted the side-
, walk outside the synagogue
which was littered with prayer
books, prayer shawls, eye glasses
and other personal belongings of
the victims.
PERTINI AND Spadolini ex-
presset shock and anger over the
attack and sent messages of
sympathy to the Jewish commu-
nity and Chief Rabbi Elk) Toaff.
They pt raised the police would
do all in their power to track
down and arrest the killers.
The Pope sent a telegram to
the Papal Vicar of Rome asking
him to relay to the Chief Rabbi,
the leaders of the Jewish commu-
nity, the victims and their fami-
lies his "firm condemnation for
his criminal act, all the more
serious because it took place in
the house o worship of the Jew-
ish community."
But the nv-ssages of sympathy
were met with stoney anger by
the 15,000 J.:w8 of Rome who
have pulled invisible shutters
around them and preferred to re-
main isolated in their grief.
"Words serve little purpose, and
the facts of the utmost gravity
are unfortunately what they are,"
Ravvi Toaff declared.
HE ACCUSED the Interior
Ministry of ignoring his pleas for
more police protection for Jewish
institutions, especially after the
Sept. 30 attack on the Jewish
community center in Milan. Both
Pertini and Spadolini had warned
after that incident against allow-
ing anger over the Beirut massa-
cre to lead to acts of anti-
Semitism. But Toaff said his re-
quests for more protections were
treated as "inopportune" by the
Italian authorities. i
TJ*e Jewish community polite-
ly but firmly turned down a visit
by Pertini after the tragedy and a
government offer to hold an offi-
cial funeral for the dead child. No
Italian authorities were repre-
sented at the burial rites.
The self-imposed isolation of
Rome's Jews from the rest of the
city was a form of bitter reproach
for what they perceived to be the
use of actions by the Israeli gov-
ernment in Lebanon which
most Jews fully supported as
an excuse for anti-Semitic on-
slaughts. Posters with messages
of sympathy and solidarity from
Rome's City Hall were ripped

down almost as soon as they were
put up near the synagogue.
THIS WAS a response to
Rome's Communist Mayor, Ugo
Vetere, who led several pro-PLO,
anti-Israel marches through
Rome in recent weeks. Those
demonstrations were seen as
incitement not only against the
government of Premier Menach-
em Begin and Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon but against Jews in
Similarly, Jews rejected mes-
sages of sympathy from Italian
trade unions, several branches of
which had demonstratively re-
fused to service El Al planes at
Rome's airport and Israeli ships
at Italian ports after the Beirut
They treated with contempt
messages of sympathy from the
PLO representative in Rome,
Nemmer Mam mad; a message
from Arafat to Pertini expressing
condolences to the Italian people
and the families of the victims in
the name of the PLO; and a mes-
sage from the Rev. Hilarion
Capucci, the Melchite archbishop
who served a prison term in Is-
rael for smuggling arms to Pales-
tinian terrorists while he was
serving as head of his church in
Jerusalem a decade ago.
BUT THE most serious reper-
cussions of the latest tragedy
may be in the realm of relations
between Jews and the Vatican.
The audience the Pope granted
Arafat Sept. 14 was viewed as a
legitimization of an international
terrorist and arch-enemy of Israel
by the leader of the Roman
Catholic Church. The Israeli gov-
ernment and Jews the world over
had tried strenuously to prevent
it, but to no avail.
The Israeli Cabinet made
oblique references to it in a state-
ment issued Sunday condemning
the Rome synagogue attack. The
statement deplored "encou-
ragement (given terrorism) in
words and deeds by (Italian gov-
ernmental and other circles."
Asked to identify those "circles."
Cabinet secretary Dan Meridor
told reporters, "Take a look at
Arafat's itinerary these past few
weeks." He was clearly hinting at
the PLO leader's meetings with
the Pope, President Pertini and
other Italian statesmen.
Israel's two Chief Rabbis,
Shlomo Goren and Ovadia Yosef,
were more direct. Ashkenazi
Chief Rabbi Goren, in a state-
ment Saturday night, called the
Rome synagogue attack "the re-
sult of incitement by the media,
begun by the Pope's granting an
audience to the master-butcher,
the head of the PLO ... He (the
Pope) welcomed him with a right
royal arm." According to Goren,
the Papal audience was "intend-
ed to influence public opinion
against the Jews."
YOSEF, the Sephardic Chief,
Rabbi, charged that "The
(Italian) leaders are responsible.
The Pope gave a reception for the
chief assassin and so did the
President of the country.''
The Israeli Foreign Ministry
issued a statement Saturday say-
ing all Israelis shared the grief of
the bereaved families. The
"criminal act perpetrated by ter-
rorists demonstrates once
again the base nature of those
who plot against Jewish worship-
pers on their festivals. It is time
for the enlightened world to unite
against terror and no longer sur-
render to it," the Foreign Minis-
try said.
There was a reaction to the
Chief Rabbis' condemnations
from Terrence Cardinal Cooke,
head of the Archdiocese of New
York, who termed the attack on
the Pope "absurd" and "slander-
ous." Expressing "outVage" over
the Rome attack, Cooke declared:
"We call upon religious leaders
in our own community not to be
engulfed by vengeful and absurd
words of slanderous recrimina-
tion. Now is the time for words
and works of peace, not vio-
lence." He exalted the Pope as "a
solitary symbol of peace."
IN ROME, the recently form-
ed Christian-Jewish Friendship
Association sent telegrams to the
Jewish community and the fami-
lies of the victims offering coop-
eration for any eventuality.
"With profound sadness and
anger we participate in your in-
describable pain for this massa
ere," the message said.
"We wish to solicit the
churches, the- politicians, the
press, the Interior Ministry,
Town Hall and unions to give
forth less rhetoric and instead
examine their consciences: All of
the aforementioned are re-
sponsible for having created a cli-
mate of resentment among citi-
zens, permissiveness toward ter-
The European branch of the
World Jewish Congress made a
similar declaration to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in Rome
Sunday. "In solidarity with the
Jewish community of Rome and
with the families of the victims to*
whom it extends its heartfelt
sympathies, the World Jewish
Congress European Branch ex-
presses its determination,
together with the Union of
Italian Jewish Communities to
press instantly for immediate and
effective measures by govern-
ments to combat international
terrorism whose racist and clear-
ly anti-Semitic nature threatens
democratic society itself.
"It solemnly warns all general
and religious authorities of the
clanger of appeasing terrorist
action and of the risks inherent in
giving any form of political
recognition to those whose lan-
guage is that of hatred and
violence against Jews and other
minority groups," the WJC
statement said.

Whereas we protest that world
public opinion applies a double
standard toward us, we as Jews
apply double standard toward
ourselves," Berman said. "We as

what he called the shocking
hypocrisy of world opinion which
rushed to blame Israel for the
Beirut massacre whereas it kept
silent about those directly
responsible for the act and
ignored for years similar inci-
dents in Beirut and in Syria. He
said American Jewry was deeply
gratified by the decision of the
Israeli government to set up a
commission of inquiry into the
events in Beirut.
He said the decision to hold the
investigation would improve Is-
rael's deteriorating image in
American public opinion and the
situation would improve with
Ben Bella Says Arabs
Will Never Accept Israel
Ahmed Ben Bella, the for-
mer president ot Algeria
who was imprisoned for
many years under the
regime of Houari
Boumedienne, said in a re-
cent interview with the
French periodical "Politi-
que Internationale" that
the Arabs will never accept
the Zionist fact.
"I am an Arab, and Palestine
does not only concern Palestin-
ians; it concerns all Arabs. Even
if the Palestinians are forced to
accept some kind of solution, the
Arabs in general will never accept
the State of Israel," he said.
ASKED IF some territorial
compromise was possible, Ben
Bella replied that acceptance of
the Zionist being would imply a
legitimacy to a non-Arab entity
in the Mideast.
"The Zionist State by its inter-
nal logic," said Ben Bella, "pre-
supposes economic, political and
cultural control over the entire
region. For us this is synony-

meetings were not publicized," he
disclosed, "at the requests of the
4Foreign Ministers."
He said that in his meetings he
was surprised to find "a better
atmosphere" from the one he had
expected. "It has become evident
to me that a lot of the criticism
toward Israel (because of the
Lebanese crisis) has subsided,"
Shamir said.
He asserted that a great deal of
the anti-Israeli criticism was
based on "unreliable media
'reports.'' He said that when he
confronted the diplomats with
the facts, many of them were
"somewhat defensive" and said
part of their information was
based on reports in the Israeli
press or Israelis writing abroad.
"THERE ARE elements in Is-
rael who do not consider the in-
terests of Israel when the criticize
Israel abroad," Shamir said in his
bnefing, contending that no
other nation is criticized abroad
by its own citizens as is Israel.
Asked about a report by col-
umnist Jack Anderson that he is
the major advocate in the Israeli
- government to favor renewed ties
with the Soviet Union, Shamir
said Israel is interested in having
t>es with all countries, including
the Soviet Union. He pointed out,
towever, that the Soviets broke
these relations with Israel during
the Six-Day War, and since they
initiated the break they are the
0n8 to restore the ties between
the two countries.
mous with sterilization and a loss
of identity that no self-respecting
Arab could accept."
Ben Bella, released from an
Algerian form of house arrest
only a year-and-a-half ago, said
that while individual Arab
leaders might go to Jerusalem to
conclude some form of peace with
Israel there would always be a
Moslem who would arise "to
liquidate traitors."
"stranger" and "cancer" to de-
scribe Israel, Ben Bella predicted
that the Israel problem would be
solved in about 20 years.
Quoting Israeli statistics re-
garding immigration and emigra-
tion, Ben Bella noted that i*>
1981, 22,000 Jews had left Israel
while only 11,000 had entered the
country. The Arab population
was already 750,000 and growing
faster than the Jewish one.
The former Algerian President
pointed also to the technological
gap which once separated Jews
and Arabs. "The Arabs are be-
ginning to have their own tech-
nicians, scholars, their own
brians," said Ben Bella.
Asked whether this line of
thinking did not justify an Israeli
pre-emptive strike against the
Arabs, Ben Bella said: "That's
the classical threat. We are con-
stantly told: Watch out the
Israelis have nuclear weapons,
they will blow up everything.
They have a Massada complex
. Well, I'll tell you what I
really think; if there is not other
solution, let the nuclear war take
place and let us be finished with
it once and for all."

"What is critical is to tone down
the heat of the debate. The worst
is over," he said, adding "It is
very important not to repeatedly
have confrontations with the
U.S. government over every little
However, Berman insisted that
Reagan's Mideast plan was not
constructive and weakened the
American position as an honest
mediator in the Middle East. He
contended that as a result of Rea-
gan's proposals, the Arabs were
now negotiating with the Ameri-
can position rather than with Is-
HE SAID that Reagan had
promised American Jewish
leaders before the 1980 elections
that he would always support a
unified Jerusalem under Israel's
rule. His new plan is a deviation
from that promise, Berman con-
tended. Reagan, announcing his
proposals Sept. 1, said the future
status of Jerusalem was to be de-
termined by negotiations.
Berman claimed there was an
American Jewish consensus on
five major points: "Israel cannot
return to its pre-1967 borders and
we will strongly oppose any effort
that will require it to go back to
those indefensible frontiers; We
will oppose any change in the
long-standing American policy of
refusing to deal with the PLO; A
unified Jerusalem is the capital of
Israel; An independent Palestin-
ian state on the West Bank and
Gaza will be a dagger pointed at
.the heart of Israel; American
Jews will continue their efforts to
ensure continued American sup-
port for Israel."
Begin also had a meeting with
GrevUle Janner, MP, president of
the Board of Deputies of British
Jews. Janner told reporters later
that his delegation wanted it
understood that all Israeli ac-
tions had a direct effect on Jew-
ish communities abroad. "At this
noment it is very difficult to say
a good word for Israel without
being shouted down," he said.
JANNER SAID he told Begin
that "although Israelis tended to
regard events here as matters
totally of their concern, when
there is massive concern in the
world over Israel's action, this
has an almost immediate reflec-
tive impact on the Jewish com-
munities of the world and on peo-
ples' attitudes towards the com-
munities and toward the Jewish

hope, pray and work that the
world draw from this tragedy to
seek an end at last to terrorism
and to the anti-Semitism that
feeds it," Wishner said.
Hyman Bookbinder, the
AJCommittee's Washington rep-
resentative, and Rabbi Joshua
Haberman, president of the
Washington, D.C. Board of
Rabbis, signed a message hand
delivered to the Italian Ambas-
sador, Rinaldo Petrignani It
said, in part:
"WITH DUE regard for the
precious principle of withholding
judgment about who is guilty of
this heinous crime until the
criminals are identified and
apprehended, we feel compelled
to express our conviction that
contributing to this crime has
been the hostile, intemperate
reporting by the Italian media of
recent Middle East developments
and the extraordinarily friend-
ly hospitality extended recently
to the acknowledged leader of
anti-Jewish terrorism, PLO
chairman Yasir Arafat."
IDF Soldiers
In Good Shape
sentatives of the International
Red Cross who were allowed by
the Syrians to visit three Israeli
soldiers who were captured by
Syria during the war in Lebanon
report that the men are in good
physical condition. They said the
soldiers confirmed they had re-
ceived letters and parcels from
their families in Israel, and they
have written home.
But Israel army spokesmen
have expressed concern at the
lack of information about other
iIsraelis believed held in Syrian
prisons, about whom no details
have been provided by the
Syrians and who have so far not
been visited by Red Cross repre-
sentatives. This refers to another
six soldiers listed as missing in
action in the fighting with Syrian
forces in eastern Lebanon.
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, also con-
demned the Rome attack aa "an
explosion of hate without a trace
of humanity. But spare us ex-
pressions of sympathy from gov-
ernments and religious leaders
who only a few weeks ago ap-
plauded and comforted in this
very same city (Rome) terror-
ism's personification, Yasir Ara-
fat. He would appreciate such
hypocrisy: for Jews it is sore
Ivan Novick, president of the
Zionist Organization of America,
also denounced the Pope for
receiving Arafat. "Those who
capitulate to terrorism, be they
spiritual leaders, officials of Italy
or world powers, must assume
their share of guilt for giving
acceptability to terrorism in con-
tradiction of all that is holy and
humane," Novick said.

of the Jewish Committee, in a
telegram to President Pertini,
said Saturday's act of terrorism
came "on the heels of your own
embrace of terrorism's arch
architect (Arafat), in addition to
the anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli
actions of the Communist-domi-
nated trade unions (that) helped
create the climate, the climate
which has brought Italy to this
moment of deep sorrow."

Following Italian Jewry's Lead
Let no political or religious leader utter now
hypocritical words of sadness for the victims of
last week I machinegunning on the steps of Rome's
beautiful and historic synagogue in the heart of that
city's ancient ghetto.
Let their messages be heaped with scorn upon the
ashes of the condolences offered the Jewish com-
I munity there by the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization's Yasir Arafat. From the very Vatican to the
sweaty halls of Italy's labor unions, from the
mechanical grinders of public opinion in Bonn and
London to their mendacious counterparts in the
White House in Washington, let the words of
sympathy die unborn as spittle from the viper.
For everywhere, the object is the same: to separate
the people of Israel from the government of Israel; to
separate the Jews of the world from the people of
Israel. Then, it is the hope of the hypocrites, Israel
will Ue back in lassitude and pass away.
No Gentile can feel separated from what happened
in Rome last week. All bear the burden of their
responsibility back to the beginning of Jew-hatred.
For what their ancestors said of Jews yesterday, they
say again today. And what they say today, their
children will repeat tomorrow.
Neither is this, simply. a perspective of history we
offer as backdrop for the agony of the death and the
suffering experienced by Jews outside of the
synagogue in Rome last week as they emerged
from prayer. It is a'jo an explanation rooted in the
events of the past months involving the war in


Those preachers of Jew-hatred the respectable
preachers in the media and in government. no less
than the at least frank preachers in the ranks of the
terrorists themselves did not enter into debate
against the war on its own terms. No, they took up
the ancient gauntlet of their ancient anti-Semitism
with a deft and practiced hand instead, a hand honed
in the lessons of their religious belief.
They created an international climate of opinion so
callous and indifferent to reason and truth, that they
encouraged the worst among their ranks to be
beastly. It is they who encouraged the acts of
murder. It is they who pulled the triggers on the
steps of the ghetto synagogue in Rome.
Those critics who today seek to separate the people
of Israel from the government of Israel, where it is
said that rank anti-Semitism lies behind much of the
world's view of the war in Lebanon, criticize this
charge as the angry and even senile belief of an old
and embittered man: Menachem Begin.
If nothing else occurred on the steps of the syn-
agogue in Rome nothing other than the
tradgedy itself it is that the critics are once and for
all themselves shown to be the hypocrites, if not the
most virulent of the hate-mongers, that we have long
declared them to be. And that Menachem Begin is
The little child will have died in vain on those
synagogue steps if finally the critics and all the
hypocrites are permitted to separate the people of
Israel from the government of Israel. And to
separate the Jews of the world from the Jews of Is-
Let the torrent of words flow unabated. And
unheeded. The Italian Jewish community, by its cou-
ageous silence and its contempt for the words of con-
dolence, points the way. Let us follow.

"When the fate of Israeli-American relations
hangs in the balance, it is doubly important that
each and every eligible American Jew express his

November." declared Harold M. Jacobs, presi-
dent of the National Council of Young Israel, in
urging all American Jews to register for the up-
coming elections.
Noting that every Congressman and one-third
of the Senators who voted on the AWACs sale
proposal last year is now standing for reelection,
the Young Israel leader said that "political pro-
fessional will be watching this November to see if
the Jewish community will put its votes where its
friends are. It is vitally important for the Jewish
community to reward our friends in Washington
with meaningful political support at the polls, and
to withhold support from those who voted against
our interests."

The three members of
the commission of inquiry
that is beginning its inves-
tigation of Israel's role, if
any, in the west Beirut
massacre, represent in
many ways, a cross-section
of Israeli society.
Chief Justice Yitzhak Kahan,
President of the Supreme Court,
who chairs the panel, is devoutly
Orthodox and an old-time settler,
having come to Palestine before
World War II. Of the two men he
appointed to the commission. Su-
preme Court Justice Aharon
Barak is of secular background
and a post-war immigrant; and
Gen. (res.) Yonah Efrat is a
native-born Israeli and career
army officer.
KAHAN, born in Brody.
Galicia, was graduated from the
Jewish gymnasium (high school)
and from the law school in Lwow,
Poland. At the age of 22, he was
qualified as a "magister of law"
and also held an economics
degree. He settled in Palestine in
1935 and was licensed to practice
law there in 1940.
In 1950. he became a magis-
trate in Haifa and three years
later a district court judge in that
city. He was appointed to the Su-
preme Court in 1970 and was ele-
vated to its presidency early this

BARAK, 46, was born in
Kovno, Lithuania. He escaped
death in the Holocaust when, at
the age of 8, he was smuggled out
of the Kovno ghetto in a sack. He
settled in Palestine in 1947, com-
bining law studies with military
service. He was graduated from

Bara< received a doctorate in
law in 1363 and was elected Dean
of the *.aw School in 1974. He
rose to national prominence a
year lattt when the then Minister
of Justice, Haim Zadok, asked
him to serve as Attorney Gen-
eral. During his three years in
that post he earned the reputa-
tion of a tough prosecutor, hand-
ling cases involving such promi-
nent personalities as Asher
Yadlin, MK Shmuel Rechtman
and former Premier Yitzhak
Rabin and his wife, Leah.
In 1978, shortly after his ele-
vation to the Supreme Court,
Premier Menachem Begin ap-
pointed Barak to the Israeli dele-
gation to the Camp David nego-
tiations. He played a key role
there drafting the accords with
President Carter and Egyptian

the army in 1977 after serving as
commander of the central com-
mand and enrolled in a univer-
sity. At present he is manager of
a government-owned -oil trans-
port company.
Efrat always shied away from
publicity and was little known
outside of army ranks. His repu-
tation among soldiers was one of
great professional skills and im-
peccable integrity.

Angry Confrontation
Begin Coalition May Feel Severe Jolt
The two leaders of the
National Religious Party's
"young guard" Educa-
tion Minister Zevulun
Hammer and Deputy For-
eign Minister Yehuda Ben-
Meir have become
embroiled in an angry con-
frontation with the Gush
Emunim movement which
could have serious political
consequences for the NRP
and eventually for Premier
Menachem Begin's coali-
tion government.
The Gush Emunim, the hard
core of the government-backed
settlers on the West Bank,
launched a bitter attack on Edu-
cation Minister Hammer follow-
ing a television interview last
week in which Hammer acknowl-
edged that his political views
were moderating as a result of the
war in Lebanon. He said he had
come to realize that kedushat
ha'am (the holiness of the nation)
was as important as kedushat
ha'aretz (the holiness of the
land). He also spoke of the need
to respect Palestinian rights.
HAMMER, a staunch sup-
porter of West Bank settlements
in the past, stressed that he still
wholeheartedly upheld the right
of Jews''to settle in all parts of
"Eretz Israel" but seemed to
equivocate on the ultimate politi-
cal status of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. In a subsequent TV
interview, he backtracked but re-
fused to mouth the Gush
Emunim formula that "Judaea
and Samaria" must remain per-
manently under Israeli sov-
There was a furious reaction
from the Gush Emunim. Rabbi
Moshe '.evinger, leader of the
Kiryat Arba-Hebron settlers,
charged that Hammer had "be-
trayed" the cause for which he
was elected and demanded that
he resign from the Knesset.
Hammer was also attacked by
NRP rightwinger Rabbi Haim
Druckman, a Knesset member
and Gush Emunim leader.
Several Gush Emunim settle-
ments on the West Bank inform-
ed Hammer that he was now
persona non grata in their midst.
BUT THE Education Minister
was strongly defended by his col-
league, Deputy Foreign Minister
Ben-Meir. Although Ben-Meir
has often supported the Gush
Emunim position, he publicly
blasted them this week for advo-
cating "endless war" for Israel
and a policy which would mean
that "we would police the world
with the blood of our children."
He said it was the Gush Emunim
rather than himself and Hammer
who had deviated from the
principles of religious Zionism.
Both Hammer and Ben-Meir
have long been considerably more
hardline on foreign policy mat-
ters than the NRP's elder states-
man, Interior Minister Yosef
Burg. Burg, for his part, was
sharply critical of Begin when the
Premier initially resisted the
creation of a formal commission
of inquiry to investigate Israel's

JDC Nears $1 Million
Mark in Assistance
To War-Torn Lebanon
Donations of over $325,000 in
cash and an estimated $700,000
in gifts-in-kind have brought the
total committed to Lebanon relief
by the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee to an es-
timated $1 million, according to
Henry Taub, JDC president.
The executive vice president of
the overseas relief agency, Ralph
Goldman, who recently visited
JDC programs in Lebanon, re-
ported that the JDC had the
"cooperation of Lebanese and
Israeli authorities," and that
"the major concern now is the
provision of suitable winter
shelter and clothing for the
homeless." He described the
problem as being "of such pro-
portions as to require an interna-
tional response by governmental
and voluntary agencies."
Goldman noted that in recent
weeks JDC had delivered 20 tons
of winter clothing collected in
Jerusalem, had "helped inoculate
60.000 children under age three
against polio and distributed
5.000 packets of Oral Rehydra-
tion Solution, as treatment for
PREVIOUSLY, he observed,
JDC had distributed 3,000 foam
rubber mattresses and 900
cartons of cooking and eating
utensils, 6,000 woolen blankets,
6,000 sets of underwear, 17 tons
of powdered milk for babies, baby
bottles, baby clothes and anti-
biotic syrup for children.
Goldman said JDC purchased
medical supplies, including five
kidney dialysis units, to resupply
and help reopen hospitals and
medical c'inics in southern Leb-
anon. He said JDC was also
funding the construction of a pre-
fabricated building on the
grounds c i' the Sidon Govern-
ment Hospital to serve as a treat-
ment center for malnourished

More than $350,000 in Israel
Bonds have been purchased as a
result of High Holy Day Appeals
on Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur in Palm Beach county
synagogues; according to Jerry
Lesher. Chairman of the Palm
Beach county Bond campaign.
Lesher also reported that more
than $50 million in Israel Bond
were purchased nationally, an
increase of 40 percent over last
year's appeals.
Rabbi Leon Kronish of Miami,
Chairman of the Israel Bond Or-
ganization's Rabbinic Cabinet,
said about the appeal: "Our
theme this year, was 'Voting for a
Strong Israel Economy and a
United Jerusalem.' Jewish con-
gregants throughout North
America expressed their over-
whelming support for the
economic development of Israel
and the united capital of Israel
through a record amount of holi-
day Bond purchases."
Rabbi Kronish expressed "the
deep gratitude of the Israel Bond
Organization and the National
Rabbinic Cabinet to our many
colleagues throughout North
America whose inspiring sermons
and wholehearted cooperation
helped make this year's High
Holy Day Appeals one of the
most successful in the 32-year
history of Israel Bonds.

Major Differences
'Protracted' Negotiations on the Fire
Israeli officials predicted
"tough and probably pro-
tracted" negotiations for
me withdrawal of all for-
eign forces from Lebanon
after U.S. special envoy
Philip Habib returned to
Washington to report to
President Reagan and spe-
cial envoy Morris"'Draper1
returned to Beirut after a
lengthy meeting with Pre-
mier Menachem Begin and
fense Minister Ariel
Sharon in Jerusalem.
An official statement issued by
Begins office after the meeting
with Draper said Israel and the
U.S. agreed in principle that Is-
raeli and Syrian forces should
pull out of Lebanon simultan-
eously, either in stages or all at
once. But American sources here
would not confirm this and re
fused to take a public position on
any of the substantive issues.
IN FACT, there appeared to be
substantial differences between
the Israelis and Americans on
such key matters as the tuning of
the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization pull-out from Lebanon
and arrangements for a security
zone north ot Israel's border to
ensure that the PLO would not
return. Those differences and re-
ported Syrian resistance to the
principle of simultaneous with-
drawal apparently gave rise to
the feeling here that the talks will
be hard and long.
Israeli sources reported that
Draper told Begin that President
Hafez Assad of Syria rejected the
idea of simultaneity on grounds
that the Syrian army had entered
Lebanon in 1976 at that coun-
try's request with the backing of
the Arab League as a peace-keep-
big-Joree, .whereas Israel's army
invaded the country. Assad
would not agree, therefore, that
the two armies be "equated" with
respect to their withdrawals.
The Israeli sources also listed
two other problem areas. Begin
demands that the PLO be
removed as the first step in ad-
vance of the Israeli and Syrian
pull-outs. There are an estimated
5,000 PLO combatants deployed
behind Syrian lines in the Bekaa
Valley in eastern Lebanon and
between 1,000-1,500 others in the
northern coastal city of Tripoli.
BEGIN CITED the ambush
attack that killed six Israeli sol-
diers and wounded 22 near Aleh
village east of Beirut as further
proof of the urgency of getting all
PLO forces out of Lebanon.
But Israeli sources have in-
dicated privately that the U.S.
does not seem to support Begin's
demand for a prior withdrawal by
the PLO. There are signs that
Israel might soften its stand if

concrete arrangements can be
made to ensure that the PLO and
the Syrians leave Lebanon at the
same time.
Begin does not subscribe to the
view expressed by Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir in New
York earlier that the PLO would
automatically withdraw from
Lebanon if it is deprived of
Syrian protection against the
superior forces of the rightwing
Lebanese Phalangists.
Begin suspects that the Sy-
rians and pro-Syrian forces in
Lebanon, notably the Christians,
belonging to the clan of former
Lebanese President Suleiman
Franjieh, might try to set up
PLO enclaves in northern Leb-
anon after the Syrian and Israeli
armies departed. The PLO and
its backers would then be in a
position to influence Lebanon's
internal politics, the Israelis fear.
THE SECOND major problem
is Israel's demand for a security
zone of some 40 kilometers depth
north of the Israeli border to
make sure the PLO never returns
to that region. Shamir has al-
ready informed United Nations
Secretary General Javier Perez
deCuellar that Israel opposes ex-
tension of the UNIFIL (United
Nations Interim Force in Leb-
anon) mandate when it expires.
Israel also opposes the replace-
ment of UNIFIL by a multina-
tional force.
Israel would clearly like to see
the Lebanese army take respon-
sibility for the security zone, pre-
ferably through Israel's closest
Lebanese ally, Maj. Saad Had-
dad, who heads the Christian
militia in south Lebanon.
Israeli officials are also speak-
ing of an open border between
Israel and Lebanon, even in the
absence of a formal peace treaty
between the two countries. Al-
though a peace treaty was one of
the stated objectives of Israel's
campaign in Lebanon, it is not
now a realistic prospect in view of
recent developments. But Israeli
authorities want to continue to
have free access to Lebanon to
monitor conditions at first hand.
THE ISSUE of south Lebanon
has not yet been thrashed out be-
tween Begin and Sharon and the
two American special envoys.
But there are signs that the U.S.
does not go along with Israel's
wishes there. According to re-
ports from Washington, Habib
will not return to the Middle East
for the time being unless a new
crisis erupts.

postures. Any individual or
group who would dare gamble
with that irreplaceable jewel,
whether in the interest of some
illusory political gain or the
momentary titilation of the
flagellation post, had better hope
he never has to face his maker.
TO SAY all this is in no way to
belittle the dimensions of the
tragedy that took place in Beirut,
or the incredible manner in which
the government initially con-
fronted it. Let the totally inde-
pendent commission of inquiry

were, though it bears pointing
out that neither of the latter two
did resign, even as their adminis-
tration presided over the most
traumatic episode in the history
of the state, the loss of 2,600 of
Israel's brightest and best in the
Yom Kippur War.
A nation deep in mourning but
still wary of the passions of the
moment waited for the Agranat
Commission to speak its peace
before delivering its own verdict.
come the present situation as a
sense of proportion. To concede
that Lebanon is a place where
massacre has been a way of life
for at least seven years is not to
excuse Israel's involvement,
however substantial or tenuous,
that might prove, in the events of
Sept. 16-18 in Beirut. But it is
also not to declare the end of the
world at hand. What the murder
of three million Cambodians and
the "yellow rain" poisonings of
tens of thousands of Afghanis
and Laotians have not yet
wrought, will surely not be
wrought by Israel's proximity to
a scene in which one group of
Arabs killed another group of
Arabs in settlement of some old
and new scores.
Nor does it suffice to say that
those in the West who ignored
terror and massacre in Lebanon
for so long and recently couldn't
wait to extricate their forces from
the country for fear of one of
them contracting a fatal hangnail
are hardly in a position to sit in
judgment on Israel. That wfll not
mitigate any failings in carrying
out the responsibility Israel as-
sumed when it undertook to fill
the vacuum created in Beirut by
the departure of the multina-
tional forces.
AGAIN, however, there is a
need to be mindful of the hisr
torical context of the Lebanese
tragedy and to be especially
vigilant against that most dan-
gerous of all syndromes emo-
tional self-indulgence. If there is
one thing Israel with its crushing
economic, military and security
burden and large, unfinished
social tasks can least afford, it is
an open-ended emotional binge.
As a function of pure remorse,
it might be understandable
within limits but there is de-
veloping around it the menacing
vacuity that personified the ex-
cesses of the American "pro-
testors" of the late 60s and early
70s which did so much to under-
mine that nation's will and values
and to prepare the ground for the
catastrophic events that followed
in Southeast Asia.
The enemy may well be smell-
ing blood in Israel for the first
time. What he has failed to win
through wars, terror, the oil wea-
pon, boycott and a billion dollar
propaganda siege Israel's ex-
tinction a reborn Jewish death
wish may yet present him with as
a gift.
