ROME (.JTA) Two
18-year old youths have
been arrested for attacking
a synagogue here with
Molotov cocktails last
Thursday night. The target
was a small synagogue on
the Via Garfagnana, near
Piazza Bologna, a neigh-
borhood inhabited by Lib-
yan Jews since 1967. There
were no casualties or
damage.
But the incident raised ten-
sions anew in Rome's Jewish
community, coming only 17 days
after the machinegun and gre-
nade attack on the main synago-
gue which killed a two-year-old
child and wounded 33 men, wom-
en and children.
POLICE IDENTIFIED the
suspects as Riccardo Renzoni and
Luca Franco. They are charged
with "possession of arms" and
"hurling inflammable material."
An anonymous telephone caller
told the Rome daily // Messag-
gero that the attack was carried
out by "The Metropolitan Com-
munist Front We hit the
Zionist headquarters on Via Gar-
fagnana, occupying the nearby
area," the caller said.
According to unconfirmed re-
ports, the police have not yet de-
termined whether the assailants
belong to a leftist group or
whether they are neo-fascists.
Eye witnesses said a group of
youths hurled Mototov cocktails
at the synagogue at about 8 p.m.
local time when the building was
empty. They reported seeing
" plainclothesmen" shoot several
times at the attackers.
A few minutes later the group
was seen in the nearby Via Reg-
gio Calabria where they hung a
banner stating, "We will destroy
the Zionist headquarters."
THE BANNER contained a
hammer and sickle and the init-
ials, "MCF." Another Molotov
cocktail exploded, damaging a
parked car.
Chief Rabbi Elio Toaff of Rome
rushed to the synagogue. He told
reporters, "The anti-Semitic
seeds that were sown are bearing
their first fruits." Later, Raffa-
ello Fellah, the Rome representa-
tive of the World Sephardic Fed-
eration, told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency: "It matters lit-
tle whether the terrorists are
from the right or left What
matters is that there seems to be
an organized design to hit Jewish
institutions."
The fatal daylight attack on
the main synagogue near the
banks of the Tiber Oct. 8 was the
climax of a series of violent anti-
Jewish acts in Rome. Only the
night before, four bombs explod-
ed in a supermarket in a heavily
Jewish populated neighborhood.
The group that claimed responsi-
bility called itself the "Anti-Be-
gin Proletarians."
SEVERAL DAYS before the
attack on the main synagogue,
the Libyan Jewish quarter was
the scene of an anti-Jewish dem-
onstration outside a Jewish social
center.
Grossman New Campaign
Director for Federation
James B. Baer, president of
South County Jewish Federation,
announces that Harvey Gross-
man has accepted the position of
campaign director for the Feder-
ation.
Raised in Miami, Grossman is
a graduate of Miami Dade Com-
munity College. After receiving a
scholarship in the Overseas Pro-
gram, he left for Israel in 1968.
He attended Tel Aviv University,
School of Pyschology, and re-
ceived a Bachelor of Arts in
Clinical Pyschology. Additional-
ly, Grossman completed three
years of graduate work.
Following his education he did
vocational and rehabilitation
counseling in Israel as well as de-
veloping a private practice. He
remained active in the Overseas
Program to help others adjust to
the Program and life in Israel. He
also taught at Tel Aviv Universi-
ty for one year.
Grossman worked in underde-
veloped areas in Israel as a social
worker-counselor. He and his
team helped underprivileged
Eastern Jews in youth clubs and
schools.
He spent a total of 8 years in
Israel and was so enriched bv his
experiences there that they
Harvey Grossman
couldn't be forgotten or set aside
upon returning to the United
States.
Grossman comes to his posi-
tion at the Federation from the
staff of Israel Bonds where he
was a field representative in
charge of the Israel Bonds South
County Campaign.
Organized Racist
Activity Turns Violent Over the Years
HOUSTON (JTA) -
Organized racist and anti-
Semitic groups have in-
creasingly turned to vio-
lence in the past few years,
according to a 90-page
report made public by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
The ADL report, titled "Hate
Groups in America: The Record
of Bigotry and Violence," focused
on the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazi
organizations and such hate-
mongenng fringe groups as the
Christian Patriots Defense
League; the Covenant, the
Sword, the Arm of the Lord; the
National States Rights Party
(NSRP). and the Aryan Nations
organization.
SEYMOUR REICH, chairman
of the ADL's national civil rights
executive committee, who pre-
sented the report to ADL's na-
tional executive committee meet-
ing here, said the document is a
comprehensive study of violence-
prone hate groups.
The study, Reich said, exposes
the extremists' organizational
and ideological links, and details
their record of violence, lawless-
ness, intimidation and threats of
force since the late 1970s, which
includes: assaults and conspira-
cies against blacks, Jews and
other minorities, sometimes in-
volving firearms and bombs; es-
tablishment of paramilitary
camps and training courses to
teach adherents weapons train-
ing, demolition and guerrilla war-
fare tactics; and use of inflamma-
tory hate language directed
against minorities, including
calls to arms and warnings to ad-
herents to prepare for civil strife
or race wars, allegedly in self-de-
fense.
"If America is to meet the
challenge of violence by organ-
ized bigots," Reich asserted, "all
institutions of American society,
including law enforcement offi-
cials, schools, churches and busi-
ness and labor organizations
must unite against them."
ONE OF the "most disturb-
ing" elements of the tread to
violence, Reich said, is paramili-
tary training that takes place in
camps operated by Klan or-
ganizations and other extremist
groups, such as the Christian
Patriots Defense League.
These clandestine facilities, the
report said, provide instruction in
weapons and killing techniques.
The operators of these camps fre-
quently speak of the "coming
race war in the United States.
A typical Klan paramilitary
operation has been conducted in
rural areas of East Texas, ac-
cording to the report, which cited
a special camp near Houston,
which was exposed in 1981, for
training youths in handling of
weapons. The Texas Emergency
Reserve, the paramilitary arm of
the Klan in Texas, received train-
ing in tactical maneuvers, mili-
tary drills, map reading and
weapons proficiency.
ANOTHER illustration of the
extremists' use of paramilitary
training is provided in a "sur-
vival" camp run by the Cove-
nant, the Sword, the Ann of the
Lord, according to the report.

Soviets Behind hem?
Neo-Nazi Demonstrations
Spread to Streets of Moscow
SAN FRANCISCO -
Sources inside the Soviet
Union report that the open
street demonstrations by
Nazi and neo-Fascist
groups that were first wit-
nessed in Moscow have now
begun spreading to other
regions of the USSR.
Celebrations of Hitler's birth-
day were held in Moscow's
Pushkin Square on Apr. 20 and
21. Though unofficial demonstra-
tions are not tolerated by the
Soviet police, reports state that
the 400 participants, many in
Nazi regalia, were not dispersed
by the authorities. To further
substantiate accusations of gov-
ernment complicity, sources
report that students at Moscow
schools were warned a month in
advance to avoid Pushkin Square
on these dates.
"ALMOST EVERY Jewish
activist in Moscow expressed fear
and confusion," said David
Waksberg of the San Francisco
Bay Area Council on Soviet
Jewry, who met with Moscow re-
fuseniks in June. 'While there
was no consensus regarding the
significance of the Nazi demon-
strations, there was agreement
KGB Detains
Jewish Activist
In Moscow
NEW YORK (JTA) So-
viet KGB officers detained a
Jewish activist from Moscow,
lnna Speranskaya-Shelmova,
after they searched her apart-
ment for seven hours last week,
according to reports reaching
here from the Soviet capital. The
KGB officers confiscated 100
items, including tape recorders, a
radio, several copies of the now-
banned samizdat journal, "Jews
in the USSR," and 450 rubles
(about $630). Police also seized
two documents related to Dr.
losif Begun, a friend of
Speranskaya-Shelmova.
Begun, a former Soviet
Prisoner of Conscience and a
refusenik since 1971, who hap-
pened to be visiting Moscow and
walked into her apartment as it
was being searched, was also de-
tained by the KGB. Whatever
money Begun had in his pockets
was also confiscated, according
to the reports. Begun was
banished to Siberia in the late
1970's for his Hebrew-language
activity. He now lives in the town
of Strunino, 60 miles from his
former home in Moscow.
that it was very bad news for the
Jewish community."
An article in Possev, an
Eastern European magazine in-
cluded this account: "The dem-
onstrators had two uniforms:
green shirt, a narrow black tie,
black pants, and a black jacket,
or, black pants and a black
leather jacket. Allegedly, one
man was dressed in full dress
Waffon-SS uniform. There were
approximately 400 participants,
most of them in the 18-25 age
bracket.
"It is rumored that many of
them are children of high Com-
munist Party officials. There
were few policemen present and
the demonstrators were not
scattered or dispersed. A few
were detained when they threw
leaflets from the roof of the
Soviet Novosty news agency
building. They were released
almost immediately while their
comrades screamed Heil Hitler."
IT HAS now been learned that
similar demonstrations have
taken place in Kurgan, Sver-
dlosk, Leningrad, Yuzho-Uralsk,
and two towns in the Ural
mountains.
The November demonstration
in Kurgan involved over a
hundred high school students
who wore swastika armbands and
carried placards demanding more
meat and other foodstuffs. Dem-
onstrators were turned over to
school authorities for discipline.
In the town of Sverdlosk, at
the official celebration of the 1917
Bolshevik revolution, a group of
fascists threw burning debris on
demonstrators passing below.

Begin's Plan for Military Parade
Boils Over Into Controversy
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM-(JTA)Israel's Independence Day is
more than six months away, but a controversy is already
boiling over Premier Menachem Begin's desire for a
military parade next Apr. 18 to celebrate the 35th an-
niversary of the Jewish State. Opinion is split along party
lines.
Sources close to the Premier say he wants a parade to
boost national morale and create stronger identification
between the people and the army. Opponents argue that
the cost would be prohibitive and the display of armed
might would allow Israel's enemies to accuse her of
militarism.
BEGIN HAS pointed out that Independence Day
military parades were the rule rather than the exception
during the 30 years when the Labor Party governed the
country. Labor Party Secretary General Haim Barlev, a
former Chief of Staff, said he thought Israel was mature
enough to dispense with such spectacles. Barlev stressed
that he spoke for himself, not his party. Former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin, a Labor MK, said he saw no reason to
oppose a parade.
Treasury circles have been quoted anonymously as
saying a parade would cost about 400 million Shekels
which Israel's staggering economy can ill afford. Begin
wants the parade in Jerusalem. Mayor Teddy Kollek, a
Laborite, is opposed for both national and urban reasons.
A Begin aide, Deputy Minister Dov Shilansky, accused
the Laborites of wanting to deprive Begin of the honor of
taking the salute at a parade that will be televised
nationally and overseas. The opponents hotly deny this.
Gemayel Bitter About Pressure
CAIRO (JTA) Lebanese President Amin Gema-
yel, in his meeting with Egypt's Foreign Minister in Rome
last week, bitterly criticized Israel for pressuring his
country to conclude a peace treaty with the Jewish State,
according to a report in Egypt's semi-official news daily
Al-Ahram.
ACCORDING to Al-Ahram, Alkireport received by
President Hosni Mubarak from Egyptian Foreign Min-
ister Kamal Hassan Ali on the meetings in Rome quotes
the Lebanese president as accusing Israel of applying
"foolish pressures which demonstrate a total lack of
foresight."
Gemayel reportedly charged that Israel was attempting
to achieve "full normalization of relations on the basis of
ensuring the security and interests of Israel alone."

Go vernment Disma yed
Gemayel's Speech Angers Officials
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
_ Government officials are
frankly dismayed by the
speeches delivered by Le-
banese ***!**JF&
Gemayel at the United Na-
tions, first to the General
Assembly and later to the
Security Council.
The Israelis appeared taken
aback by Gemayel's assertion
that the withdrawal of Israeli
forces from Lebanon was the first
prerequisite of peace in his coun-
try, his endorsement of Palestin-
ian self-determination "in then-
land, Palestine," and his warning
that "the Israeli-Palestinian
war" was threatening the 1949
armistice between Israel and Le-
banon.
OFFICIALS HERE expressed
hope that Gemayel's remarks
were intended for home con-
sumption and for the Arab world.
Some saw the speeches as a
means of cajoling Syria into re-
specting Lebanon's indepen-
dence. But it was noted that
while in the past Gemayel went
out of his way to recognize Is-
rael's security needs in Lebanon,
he offered no such recognition in
his UN speeches.
According to officials here, Is-
rael helped restore Lebanon's
sovereignty and independence
liut is being repaid with "ingrati-
tude by Gemayel."
Israel was also rankled by
Gemayel's appeal that the United
Nations Interim Force in Leba-
non remain there for the time be-
ing. The Security Council subse-
quently voted to extend the
UNIFIL mandate for another
'Zs three months.
ISRAEL HAS made it clear
that it does not regard UNIFIL
us capable of preventing terrorist
infiltration of south Lebanon and
wants the Lebanese army to take
over security responsibility in
that region on terms to be worked
out in negotiations with Israel.
Non-Israelis Testify
Before Commission
>
JERUSALEM Two British
doctors and an American nurse
testified before the commission of
inquiry investigating the west
Beirut massacres. They were the
first non-Israeli witnesses to ap-
pear before the panel. All were
volunteers working at the Gaza
Hospital in Beirut where Pales-
tinians from the Shatua and
Sabra refugee camps were treated
, -> for wounds.
Their testimony covered
events in the camps from
Wednesday, Sept. 16, just before
the Israeli army occupied west
Beirut, until Saturday, Sept. 18,
by which time Christian Phalan-
gist units had been ordered out of
the camps by the Israelis. The
massacres occurred Thursday
and Friday, Sept. 16 and 17.
The witnesses were Dr. Su
Chai Ang, a Malaysian-born
British subject, Dr. Paul Morris,
and nurse Ellen Segal from the
U.S., who is Jewish. They said
they had not witnessed the mas-
sacres directly but saw many
Palestinian men, women and
children brought to the hospital
suffering from wounds, begin-
ning on Thursday night.
Ang testified that about 30
corpses were placed in the hos-
P'tal morgue, most of them
women and children.
Israel's disappointment with
Gemayel stemmed, in part, from
his assertion to the Security
Council that "The withdrawal of
Israeli forces constitutes the
fundamental objective called for
by your resolutions. This objec-
tive must be achieved."
He was referring to the
repeated resolutions by the Se-
curity Council during the Leban-
ese war last summer that Israeli
forces leave the country. They
were ignored by Israel.
Gemayel also said that "Leba-
non similarly awaits the simul-
taneous withdrawal of all non-
Lebanese forces existing within
its territory." But he referred by
name only to Israeli forces,
implying that their presence was
the chief obstacle to the restora-
tion of peace in Lebanon.
GEMAYEL observed that the
Security Council's resolutions,
adopted with "such wonderful
unanimity," had not resulted in
"the liberation of Lebanon, and
they did not put an end to the
continuing and recurrent in-
vasions. "The latter appeared to
be a veiled reference to Israel's
occupation of south Lebanon for
several months in 1978 and the
frequent incursions of Israeli
troops into Lebanon in pursuit of
Palestinian terrorists since then.
Gemayel barely mentioned Is-
rael in his 20-minute speech to
the General Assembly. But Jeru-
salem was clearly unhappy with
his statement, "As we wish to
live in peace and freedom in our
land, so should the Palestinians
live in peace and freedom and
self-determination in their land,
Palestine."
The opposition Labor Party
has declared that Gemayel's
comments at the UN should
prompt the government "to wake
up from its hallucinations" and
return to the "national objec-
tives" which have guided Israel's
security policy since the
establishment of the State.
The Laborites said it was now
clear "beyond any doubt" that
those who sent the Israeli army
to war with the hope of changing
the political map and achieving
peace with Lebanon have "made
a terrible mistake."

Western 'Rendez-Vous' May Become Another Munich
No doubt about it: Munich is just around
the corner. This time, it is the Israelis who
are being sacrificed. Or so we think, just as
at Munich it was thought that nothing
would be lost beyond Czechoslovakia itself.
This time, it is the West in the Middle
East, preparing its own rendez-vous with
destiny by turning a cold shoulder to its
once presumably-prized fledglings in Tel
Aviv.
The Europeans are skilled at that sort of
thing. They have a long history, thousands
of years of it, that has given them the
capacity to betray others, only to find they
have betrayed themselves, but never
learning a lesson from their propensity for
sel f-des tructi ve folly.
But we Americans are less skilled. And
so the finesse of our betrayal of Israel is far
more crude not that the results will be
any different.
What motivated us in the beginning in
this enterprise was a naive morality
spawned in the duplicitous maw of the
world's media: Israel in Lebanon was
dastardly, and so needed punishment.
But now it is something else. Now, it is
the pressure of the depression that
motivates our law-makers on Capitol Hill
to make things more difficult in the days
and years ahead for Israel as it seeks future
military appropriations in Congress.
Men like Congressmen Steven Solarz
(D., N.Y.) and John LeBoutillier (R., N.Y.)
cross party lines to express their fears in
this regard. The question is just whom do
these solons who worry Solarz and LeBou-
tillier think they will be punishing?
Of course, Israel. But that is just the
beginning. The duplicitous media in their
mendacity do not, for example, tell the
whole story: what the Israeli operation in
Lebanon has in fact wrought so far as
freedom in Lebanon itself is concerned, let
alone what the Israelis have achieved in
humbling the Soviet Union and its terrorist
clients, the PLO. Nor do they tell the story
of what benefit has accrued to the U.S. in
the area of intelligence as a consequence of
the I sraeli operation.
Yet, because of the depression, warn
friends of Israel on Capitol Hill, the future
seems bleak. Solarz said the other day
before a gathering of Conservative Jewish
spiritual leaders and laymen: "During the
past year, there has been a significant
erosion for Israel both around the country
and in the Congress."
"There is going to be a real bad time
coming in America and in Congress; I can
feel it in my stomach," warns LeBoutillier.
"Too many of my colleagues are less
concerned about Israel" these days.
And so, the fat's in the fire for a barbecue
of Israeli interests. The hosts are
Munichersall.
Treaty Turning Sour
Not even the most pessimistic observer
could have anticipated that the Israeli
peace treaty with Egypt would go sour so
quickly But there is evidence of this all
over the place. From the beginning, it was
clear that the treaty, based on the virtually
unconditional return of the Sinai to the
Cairenes, was little more than an exercise in
diplomacy. It could not last, especially
when that prince of peace, Anwar Sadat
himself, began cu-agfring his heels once the
first hunks of the Sinai came back to him.
Now, under Mubarak, what Sadat
wrought, his successor exalts as a signal to
fthe Arab world that the shotgun marriage
with Israel is over.
Example: Our correspondent in Cairo,
Judith Kohn, reports that the Egyptian
press these days is. if our readers will par-
don the pun, irrepressible in all matters
Israeli. The other day, reporting the Israeli
inquiry into the Sabra and Shatila mass-
acres, the Egyptian daily. A I-Ah ram, said
of it that "the accused is cross-examining
itself." And, speaking of Prime Minister
Begin, a cartoon shows the Prime Minister
carrying a poster that reads: "Speaking to
the world, the Israeli leader asks, 'Are you
pleased?'"
Example: Last week referring to the
peace treaty, Egypt's Foreign Minister
Kamal Hassan Ali called it "a strategic
choice," which is to say, not a commitment,
but a diplomatic tactic.
And so, the tatters show so much more
dramatically in November than anyone
would have imagined last April, when the
last of the settlers in the Sinai at Yamit had
to be forced out of their settlements by
Israeli troops.
What can we expect, say, New Year's
Eve?
Christian Embassy Hits Target
stmmmmmmmm
HUGE
INTERNATIONAL Christian
Embassy in Jerusalem is saying
some important things these
days to which Western leaders
and Christians generally ought to
pay careful attention. Jan van
der Hoeven, spokesman for the
Embassy, issued a statement the
other week that gets to the very
heart of the war in Lebanon.
Says Van der Hoeven: "Be-
hind all the misleading headlines
and conflicting political argu-
ments, a force is at work that
Christians, sooner or later, will
have to reckon with Islam .
"The war against Israel, first
and foremost, is a religious war
being waged by the spiritual
principality of Islam. This same
force is also actively at work
against Christians in Lebanon.
Islam wars against the Jewish
sovereign state and also against
the only democracy in the Arab
world that has a strong Christian
presence Through Syria and the
FLO occupation, Islam at-
tempted to gain a permanent
stronghold in Lebanon."
IN FACT. Van der Hoeven re-
minds us. the jihad cry of the
Arabs in the 1967 Six-Day War
was. "We will kill the Saturday
people and then the Sunday peo-
ple." This means that the war
against Israel is in reality the
first stage in an ultimate war
against Christianity itself.
Furthermore, not even Chris-
tian Arabs themselves fully real
me either the true spiritual or po-
litical purpose of the Arab
sheikhs. They tend, says Vad der
Hoeven. "to react more often as
Arab nationalists than as Chris-
tiana."
So many Christian Lebanese,
for example, tend today to forget
the horror of their persecution at
the hands of the Palestine
Liberation Organization. Now
that they have been liberated by
the Israeli operation in Lebanon,
they are more vocal about an Is
raeli withdrawal than about the
withdrawal of either the PLO or
the Syrians on the ground that
tiie latter two are. after all. Arab.
BUT SYRIA'S President
Assad is a Muscovite client And
there is little doubt that the PLO
in its highest echelons is more
Marxist than Moslem, but it
manipulates Moslem anti-Jewish
and anti-Christian sentiment in
its own cause.
Neither for the Syrians nor for
the PLO is pan-Arabism as com-
pelling an issue as Communism.
And so. Van der Hoeven argues.
Christians generally and Chris-
tian Arabs specifically are falling
right into the PLO propaganda
trap. Lebanon's President Amin
Gemayel included
DOM this mean lnat Van der
Hoeven and the Christian I

bassy in Jerusalem have no ax of
their own to grind? Hardly. Their
support of Israel is as conditional
as is the support of any American
fundamentalist preacher's.
The Van der Hoeven state-
ment, for example, sees the Leba-
nese war. indeed the whole Jew-
ish return to Israel as a sovereign
state, in terms of biblical pro-
phecy and hence in support of the
New Testament view.
"PEOPLE GET irked," he
says, "at the suggestion that
God's justice and judgment have
something to do with this Israeli
action (the war in Lebanon).
Even many Christians do not see
. Although He abhors war,
God has nevertheless furthered
His purposes throughout history
by means of war. He judged His
own nation Israel by means of the
sword, and used the same sword
to help His chosen nation over-
come its enemies in times of favor
and obedience. Such a time has
come now."
I can not speak for God as
easily as Van der Hoeven does.
And so he has no problem in add-
ing the usual Christian reference
to Isaiah translated to suit Chris-
tian ideology: "Isaiah 29 prophe-
sies that Lebanon will become a
'fruitful field' and a blessing to
the whole Middle East through
renewed evangelical outreach .
No wonder the powers of ev il ant
trying to bring everything
against this glorious plan of
God! May we not be so fool-
ish as to rely on the media more
than on the revealed Word and
purposes of God. lest we find our-
selves one day lined up against
the very One in who (sic) we said
we trusted."
And if the Jews are finally
back in Israel, let us never forget
why they were not in Israel for
the preceding 2,000 years: "Be-
cause of disobedience, Israel was
dispersed and the nations allowed
to occupy the Land for a time
But always there was the promise
of return, and we have seen this
miracle occur in our own lifetime.
How can Christians be so dis-
honest as to deny the clear Word
of God in this matter?"
BUT THESE theological con
struct s apart, quaint and
curiouser than the Mad Hatter.
Van der Hoeven asks pertinent
questions and makes telling
points. His reference to the grow-
ing dependence upon the media
for information combines the two
in a powerful condemnation:
"The media made things worse
(in Lebanon). Pictures of Israeli
actions in Lebanon have been
one-sided: Where were the
journalists when the PLO des-
troyed Oamour in 1976, killing
thousands of Christians? Where
were they when Lebanese Chris-
tians held thanksgiving services
for the liberation that came
through Israel? Where were the
cameras when cheering Lebanese
greeted Israeli forces along their
way to Beirut?"
And, by contrast between Is-
rael in Lebanon and the actions of
other countries and military
forces elsewhere. Van der Hoeven
wonders just "how 'monstrous'
were the Israelis" in fact. "Dur-
ing World War II." he recalls,
"the Allied Jforces did not merely
target the'$S command centers
and apartment buildings used
and lived in by the Nazis They
flattened tntirt German cities
But Israel's pilots were in
structed to target PLO centers
only.
"THE ALLIED Army did not
bother to drop leaflets over
Dresden, Hamburg and other
German cities before they
bombed their civilian populations

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Page 5
W
People Focus
By GEM ROSENBERG
I recently spent a fascinating
afternoon talking with Susan
Levine, proprietor of "The Burn-
ing Bush," Palm Beach County's
first and only Israeli import
store. Susan had a very interest-
ing story to share, one which I
feel would be of interest to our
readers.
Susan moved to Florida a year
and a half ago from Washington,
D.C. upon her marriage to Rabbi
Joel Levine. Prior to becoming a
Floridian, she owned and
operated four temporary employ-
ment agencies in the Capitol, area.
When she married Rabbi
Levine, she wanted very much to
purchase a pair of distinctively
unique Israeli sabbath candle-
sticks as a symbol of their new
beginning. Her search, however,
was to no avail, for Susan could
not find locally the type of can-
dlesticks she wanted. She
shopped the many Temple Sister-
hood gift shops that were
geographically accessible, and al-
though she saw many beautiful
sets, none captured the unique
flavor she envisioned for her new
home. It was then that she
planted the seed of a dream that
was a year and a half later to be-
come "The Burning Bush."
Susan realized that what was
lacking in this area was a store
selling exclusively Israeli items.
Her exposure was such that she
was well aware of the wealth of
talent in Israeli artists and
craftsmen, and decided to some-
how bring this beauty to the
population of Palm Beach Coun-
ty.
She accompanied her husband
when he led a group of people on
a trip to Israel in March 1982, at
which time she managed to ar-
range a meeting with a repre-
sentative of the Israel Ministry of
Trade. The gentlemen with whom
she spoke was quite helpful and
informative, sharing the names of
various suppliers of the merchan-
dise she would want to purchase
if she opened a retail store in the
U.S.
Upon returning home she and
her husband discussed the idea at
length, researched it, and in July
she was back in Israel on a buy-
ing trip! Interestingly enough,
many of her sources for her pur-
chases came from word of mouth.
She talked to people in res-
taurants and throughout Israel,
and people referred her to
talented craftsmen and artists in
Kibbutzim, in small villages, and
in various cities.
"The Burning Bush" officially
opened on Oct. 1 in the Cross
County Mall in West Palm
Beach. It retails Israeli glass-
ware, jewelry, ceramics, litho-
graphs, a complete line of
mosaics, gift ware, and religious
articles such as candlesticks, (of
course!) menorahs, kiddushcups,
etc. Almost all the merchandise
is hand-crafted, and each one is
individually outstanding. There
is something in the store to
please everyone's taste and
pocketbook, (prices start at $6).
"My gratification comes from
knowing that there is nothing
like this store in the area; we're
providing something good for the
community. It is also good for
the Israeli economy, as all our Is-
raeli suppliers are paid in Ameri-
can dollars. Additionally, it's
good for me 1 love it! Holding
a menorah hand-carved from
Jerusalem stone inspires me
knowing I'm holding a piece of
Israel in my hand. I'm pleased
that the store reflects the ex-
quisite and unique talents of our
people in Israel," said Susan.

UNRWA Admits Beirut School Was PLO Center
VIENNA (JTA) -
The head of the United Na-
tions Relief and Works
Agency acknowledged in a
report here that its Siblin
Training Center, a voca-
tional school near Beirut,
had been misused by the
Palestine Liberation Orga-
nization which forced mili-
tary training and indoctri-
nation of 781 students over
a period of two years.
Olaf Rydbeck, Commissioner-
General of the Vienna-based
agency, said this was a blatant
violation of the school's regula-
tions and purpose and announced
that its principal has been sus-
pended and that disciplinary
action has been taken against
him and other faculty members.
RYDBECK'S REPORT essen
tially confirmed charges by Is-
raeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, in an address to the UN
General Assembly last month,
that UNRWA had become "a
tool to preserve the refugee
camps in which idle people were
subjected to incitement and
coercion in the service of terrorist
organizations." Rydbeck had vi-
gorously denied the charges at
the time.
One immediate reaction to his
disclosure was the reported de-
mand by the U.S. Ambassador to
the UN, Jeane Kirk pa trick, that
the U.S. withhold a *15 million
donation to UNRWA pending a
full inquiry. UNRWA was estab-
lished 35 years ago specifically to
aid Palestinian refugees in camps
in Israel and other countries. It
has been financed by donations
from UN member-states.
According to Rydbeck"s re-
port, the Siblin Center allowed
armed PLO instructors to live in
the school facilities, store arms in
a basement that was made off
limits to UN employes and sent
radio messages from it. In addi-
tion, the PLO conducted military
classes for young men and wom-
en studying trades. The report
noted that diplomas were with-
held from vocational graduates
until they had served a year with
the PLO.
RYDBECK'S REPORTS said,
"The agency is satisfied that its
training center in Siblin was mis-
used. The center's premises were
evidently used to provide sys-
tematic military training to the
center's students," an obvious
violation of UNRWA regula
tions.
The report added: "It was
clear for around two yearn prior
to 1982 a parallel program of or-
ganized military training by the
PLO has been carried out within
the center's premises which is
totally incompatible with the
agency's status and functions."
Satsky Elected Senior Vice
President OfBB International
Henry J. Satsky of Delray
Beach was elected senior vice
president of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional at its 31st biennial conven-
tion held this week in Toronto.
For the 500,000 member or-
ganization, it marked the first
time the conclave was held in
Canada. Some 2,000 members
from 46 countries throughout the
world attended.
Abba Eban, former deputy
prime minister of Israel and
former ambassador to both the
United Nations and the United
States, was the keynote speaker.
I Jeane Kirkpatrick, United States
i ambassador to the United Na-
tions, also addressed the world
gathering.
"I feel privileged to have the
opportunity to serve B'nai B'rith
in this meaningful capacity"
Satsky said," and during my
term of office I will be meeting
with heads of state throughout
the world in my unending quest
to fulfill the goals and principles
of the world's largest Jewish serv-
ice organization.'.'
Satsky has served B'nai B'rith
for over four decades. For the
past four years, he has held the
position of international vice
president. Previously, he was
president of Northern New Jer-
sey Council, was the founder of
Food Industry Lodge, and was
Henry Satsky
national chairman of both the
Century Club and President's
Club fund raising.
In October of 1980, he was the
recipient of B'nai B'rith's most
prestigious honor, its Gold Me-
dallion Award.
Satsky is chairman of the
board of Riteway Rentals, Inc., in
East Brunswick, N.J. and is cor-
porate director of labor relations
of Wakefern Food Corporation in
Elizabeth, N.J.
Married to the former Isabel
Blitzman, the couple has threi
children, Diane Satsky Dondet

Marie's Story
The Other Side of the Fence
By JOAN SILBERSTEIN
METULLA, ISRAEL -
Metulla could be a hilltop village
in Switzerland. The green valley.
The sun-warmed scent of apples
from foothill;orchards. The red
rooftops on the gracious homes
lining the main street, looking
like chalets. Small hotels and
pensions, in the European man-
ner, for tourists and vacationers.
Over all, a sense of abiding peace
The illusion passes. Metulla is
a border town in Israel's embat-
tled north, a slender fingertip be-
tween Syria and Lebanon. Point-
ing to a cross-hatched wiring
unique to boundaries that divide
nation from nation, this one
the Good Fence beckons and
invites ... And this is the story
of Marie, who walks through its
gateway every morning into Is-
rael and walks back again every
night.
Marie lives on the other side of
the fence, in Lebanon. For eight
years, since the Lebanese Civil
War in 1974-75, her Arab Chris-
tian village was a tragic mirror
image of Metulla, shelled con-
stantly by PLO katuyshas. But
with no army to retaliate or pro-
tect the people or minimize ter-
rorist raids, men and boys disap-
peared, women were raped,
houses were plundered .
Even here, on the other side of
the fence, sitting in an office she
cleans even now, when the
seige of terror has been lifted
the memories continue to haunt
her. They come out jaggedly,
rapid Arabic translated stolidly
into English. My photographer
catches every expression in
Marie's eyes. Pride. Hurt.
"Eight years ago," she says,
"I came to the Good Fence. I
came to the Israelis for help.
Blood all over me, cut up from
shrapnel from the terrorists. The
Israelis took me to their hospital,
they took care of me."
She gets up from her chair,
comes to stand directly in front of
me, a 53 year old woman, solid of
body. She has borne four chil-
dren, two sons and two daugh-
ters. She has grandchildren. She
lifts the hem of her simple black
dress to show me, woman to
woman, the shrapnel scars on her
legs and thighs, then pushes at
her sleeves to expose the bum
marks on her arms.
"They did that. The PLO. If
the Israelis didn't stop them,
they might have killed us all. For
eight years, we were suffering all
the time. Their bomb ruined our
house. We were in the shelter. My
husband's brother was hit, and
afterwards they had to amputate
his legs. It was a nightmare."
Marie smoothes the hem of her
skirt, sits down again opposite
me. As she talks, she twists a bit
of grey cleaning rag in her hands,
then spreads it out flat and
presses it down hard on her lap,
as if to push the painful memories
away. "We had no money," she
goes on. "Our land was there, but
we couldn't work it. The PLO
wouldn't let us. How could we
live? How could we eat? We came
here, my husband and I, with our
children, to the Good Fence. The
Israelis, they were the only ones
who would help us. Now my hus-
band works in the orchards and
one of my sons works in a garage
in a kibbutz near by. I have my
cleaning to do, the offices and the
childrens' kindergarten. I am a
person here. A human being."
Her eyes fill. Abruptly, she
leaves the room for a moment, re-
turns. In her hand is a rolled pan-
cake, resembling a crepe. She
holds it out to me.
"I made it this morning. Taste
it.
Cabinet Says Israel
Ready to Discuss Taba
I taste. Devour it. Delicious.
"You know where the flour
comes from? From Israel. And
where does the money come from
to pay for the flour? From Israel.
My bread, my life I get from
Israel."
The translator's voice stops.
Marie's hands are calm now,
gathering up her bit of cleaning
rag. Her eyes are on me.
The interviewer in me searches
for the next question. The woman
in me knows there is none: it's all
been said.
At the same moment, we get
up and walk toward each other.
Kiss on both cheeks. Embrace.
Le-hi-tra-ot, we tell each other.
We will meet again. Salaam, in
Arabic. Peace. Shalom, in He-
brew. Peace.
Outside, the Good Fence be-
hind me, the Swiss-like hilltop
village comes back into focus.
The sense of abiding peace feels
more like promise now than illu-
sion.

An NSPA official, Michael
Allen of Chicago, drew nation-
wide attention when he claimed
that John Hinckley, Jr., the
would-be assassin of President
Reagan, had been a member of
the organization. Allen alleged,
however, that Hinckley was ex-
pelled in 1979 because "he
wanted to shoot people and blow
things up."
Among the factors contribut-
ing to the trend toward increased
violence by hate groups, Reich
cited what he called "a sense of
frustration of a small minority of
whites in the face of changing
race relations, leading some to
seek the simple answers offered
by extremist movements." In
some cases, "the extremists have
exploited frustration and resent-
ment, turning them into hate and
then violence," the ADL official
said.
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Cabinet Sunday in-
dicated that Israel is ready
to resume negotiations with
Egypt over the Taba re-
gion, a small parcel of land
near Eilat which has been
in dispute between the two
countries since Israel com-
pleted its withdrawal from
Sinai last April.
But the Cabinet also made it
clear that Israel wants the Taba
negotiations to be conducted si-
multaneously with a discussion
of other subjects of mutual inter-
est to the two countries, meaning
the autonomy talks and the nor-
malization process.
ISRAEL ALSO demands the
immediate return of the Egyptian
Ambassador, Saad Mortada, who
was recalled from Tel Aviv last
month in an expression of Cairo's
anger over the massacre of Pales-
tinians in the Sabra and Shatila
refugee camps in west Beirut.
The Cabinet devoted much of
its weekly session to a discussion
of Israeli-Egyptian relations. The
ministers were briefed by Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir who re-
ceived a letter from his Egyptian
counterpart, Kamal Hassan All I
calling for immediate resumption I
of the Taba negotiations.

tanks destroyed by Israel and the 200 captured during thel
war in Lebanon from reserve tanks they had held inl
emergency stores, according to Maj. Gen. Moshe Bar-,
Kochba, commander of the armored corps.
In an address on Israel Radio, on the occasion of Tankl
Day, he said that more than 900 of the Syrian tanks of a]
total of some 1,400 are now stationed in Bekaa valley inl
eastern Lebanon, an area which the Syrians consider|
essential to their national defense.

wholesale. But the Israelis did
warn the civilians of West Beirut
to dear out of PLO-controlled
areas as their fight was only with
the terrorists. With such an-
nouncements, the Israelis lost the
advantage of surprise and sus-
tained greater harm to them-
selves."
Van der Hoeven appears to ar-
rive at some pessimistic conclu-
sions, mainly that "whatever the
Asraelis do, nothing can satisfy
their critics. England can fight
the Argentinians to the bitter end
in the Falklands and withstand
IRA terrorists in Ireland. No one
calls for sanctions or her expul-
sion from the United Nations.
But woe unto Israel if she moves
into Lebanon to single out .
Soviet-trained terrorists that
(sic) have not only destroyed
. many innocent Jewish lives, but
Ithave terrorized Christians and
I other Lebanese people, un-
checked, for eight years."
Seemingly disturbed by his
pessimism, he wonders somewhat
naively: "Is it possible that an
unconscious, hidden streak of
anti-Semitism is blinding many
from the clear teaching of scrip-
lure?"
THE QUESTION is naive
because the anti-Semitism of
which he speaks has been
lovingly nurtured for 2,000 years
by a Christianity intending to
bring Judaism to heel. Now that
Lie, and happily some other
* Christians, begin to see the
absurdity of that plan of the devil
in retrospect, he should not
expect anti-Semitism suddenly to
stop functioning as a force. The
Christians did their work all too
well for that kind of a miracle.
But the ultimate role of Chris-
tianity in the Israel-Arab im-
passe is not a matter for pes-
simism to Van der Hoeven at all.
the Jews were dispersed "be-
cause of disobedience," they have
returned because of God's grace.
And so. do such Christians
who argue that they are merely
trying to be just and fair to the
Palestinian Arabs, in the end
,.rea|l> .believe the Bible, or have
they fallen prey to the political
delusions of the Arab Pales-
tinians ao much so that they
no longer hear the living voice of
the Word of God?"
.-^Van der Hoeven's answer is
^t, of course, Christians do not
ar the voice or heed the word.
In failing to support Israel.
Uinsuans "fight against His
Uod si plan. The end result is
inat God's people, the Jews, are
made to pay the price again."
IT IS as difficult for me to ac-
cept that the Jews are "God's
People as it u forme to accept
vn der Hoevens notion that,
"y, Saudi Arabia is not a
noderate" Arab nation (a
[western grand delusion these
wysl because Saudi Arabia "is

was surely no less oppressive. In-

nat the Jews had been to blame
or the Islamic invasion in the
ir-! place and needed to be

No. there are other naons to
approach So ,__ .

Still, Van der Hoevens state-
ment is important because it gets
right at the hypocrisies of the
West and Western leadership so
far as Israel is concerned. It ar-
gues that by turning their backs
on Israel today, they merely
postpone facing a frontal Arab
assault tomorrow on the very
core of Western life and its insti-
tutions.
WERE I to modify this view at
all, I would merely add that the
accuracy of Van der Hoeven s
view depends upon whether or
not Communism succeeds in the
Middle East first. If the Yasir
Arafats of that part of the world
have their way, and the West is
doing everything in its power to
help them succeed, then it will
not be the Crescent of Islam we
must fear there ultimately but
the power of the Hammer and
Sickle.
Israel Seen Emerging
As Protector Of
Palestinians in Lebanon
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Israel appeared to be
emerging as the protector
of Palestinian refugees in
south Lebanon against ef-
forts by the Lebanese gov-
ernment to get rid of them.
Economics Minister Yaaov
Meridor has told the
Knesset that Israel would
see to it that the refugees
have adequate shelter this
winter, regardless of oppos-
ition from the Lebanese
authorities.
He said Israel was encouraging
the refugees to accept tents pro-
vided by the United Nations Re-
lief and Works Agency and would
help them build more permanent
structures if they wished. These
would replace the structures des-
troyed in the Lebanese war last
summer. The Lebanese govern-
ment is demolishing refugee
houses in the Beirut areas on
grounds they were built illegally.
MERIDOR ALSO pledged
that the Israeli army would pro-
tect the refugees from Lebanese
moves against them as long as
the army remains in Lebanon. He
said he had met with a top Leba-
nese "personality" last July who
had made it clear that the
Lebanese government wanted all
Palestinians out of the country
and therefore refused to approve
the building of permanent or
semi-permanent shelters for
them.
Residents of the Ein Hilwe
refugee camp near Sidon burned
down the first UNRWA tents,
demanding permanent shelters.
They stoned UNRWA workers
erecting the tents but a spokes-
man for the agency said work
would be resumed
Meridor spoke in reply to
charges by the Labor Alignment
that the government had failed to
act last summer to provide the
homeless refugees with shelter
before the winter cold set in.
Mapam MK Yair Tsaban said Is-
rael could have acted then with-
out interference from the Leba-
nese.
MERIDOR'S solicitude to-
ward the refugees was seen by
some observers as an effort to
undo the damage caused earlier
this year by his alleged comment
that the Palestinians should be
"pushed eastward." In the
Knesset the minister accused
UNRWA of tardiness in erecting
the tents.
Egypt Asks for Resumption
Of Negotiations Over Taba's Status
By JUDITH KOHN
CAIRO (JTA) Egypt has requested the im-
mediate resumption of negotiations with Israel over the
status of Taba, it was reported in the press here.
According to the semi-official news daily Al-Ahram,
Egyptian Foreign Minister Kama! Hassan Ali has asked
Washington, in a letter to U.S. Secretary of State George
Shultz, to play an active role in the negotiations over the
disputed territory south of Eilat, whose situation Ali is
said to have described as critical.
THE MESSAGE reportedly charged that Israeli
measures in Taba violated the provisions of a framework
concluded last April for resolving the dispute.
Preparations for the opening of a large hotel in the area
are currently underway.
Ali told reporters last Sunday that he had sent a similar
letter to Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, setting
out the Egyptian position on the territorial dispute.
In related developments, Egypt has warned "Sonesta,"
the company that will operate the new hotel, that Egypt
would consider its operations in Taba a violation of in-
ternational law, it was reported in the news daily Al-
aomhuriya Claims Deadline

Jewish Family Life Education
Program At JF&CS
Jewish Family and Children's
Service of Boca Raton is develop-
ing a program of Jewish Family
Life Education under the direc-
tion of Dena Baraah. MSW.
Groups will provide support to
people who are experiencing nor-
mative life crises, with an em-
phasis on learning new coping
skills. The groups will be led by
professionals and designed to
enable individuals to learn more
about themselves through the
small group discussion method.
Family Service agencies have
been working toward improve-
ment of family functioning for
years, primarily through counsel-
ing. More recently, people have
begun to recognize prevention
and growth as viable objectives
of a family service agency, and
not just an ideal to be explored
when and if treatment needs are
met.
As a part of Jewish Family
Life Education, Jewish Family
Service is sponsoring a six week
group for teenagers whose par-
ents are divorced. This group will
be held at Temple Beth-El of
Boca Raton, beginning Nov. 15.
It will be led by Gerry Weinberg
er. Ph.D. and Dena Baraah,
MSW.
Groups planned for the future
will deal with Parenting, Inter-
marriage, and Widowhood.
In addition to groups, Jewish
Family Service provides profes-
sionals who speak to various or-
ganizations and clubs. "Sex and
the Single Jew" was a recent pre-
sentation at the Hillel Founda-
tion at Florida Atlantic Universi-
ty. Future lectures may deal with
Single Parenting and Cults.
Jewish Family Service of Boca
Raton will be working closely
with local Rabbis to provide sti-
mulating and educational pro-
grams for everyone in our com-
munity. "The staff at Jewish
Family Service is very excited
about the Jewish Family Life
Education program and hopes
that people will avail themselves
of these services," said Dena
Harash.

20 Years After His Execution in Israel
>*
By SIMON GRIVER
It is twenty years since
Adolf Eichmann was
executed and about double
that period since the "final
solution" that he organized
got into its lethal full
swing. Few trials have ever
attracted as much attention
as Eichmann's. The
Nuremburg trials, immedi-
ately after the Nazi defeat
in 1945, were compelling
but then the guilt was not
concentrated on one man,
and a rather ordinary man
at that.
Moreover, the Nazis at
Nuremburg were tried more
generally for war crimes,
unlike Eichmann who in the
Jewish state was accused
by the Jewish people of
genocide.
PERHAPS THE only other
man in the dock to ever provoke
as much political .con troversyw as
Albert Dreyfus. But while it was
Dreyfus' obvious innocence in the
face of the anti-Semitic French
establishment that stood out, it
was Eichmann's glaring guilt,
obsessive anti-Semitism and the
extent of his crime that captured
and chilled the imagination.
If Dreyfus, the assimilated Jew
who was made a scapegoat aftei
the military defeat by Prussia in
1870, represented the inability of
the European establishment to
accept their Jewish citizens, then
Eichmann symbolized the ruth-
less means by which Europe was
to root out its undesired Semites.
Ironically, while Dreyfus, the
loyal Frenchman, was ignorant of
Jewish culture. Eichmann
learned Yiddish and Hebrew so

U.S. Troop Numbers in Lebanon
To Be Decided After Exodus
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration will not decide
whether to increase the
number of U.S. marines in
Lebanon until the opera-
tional method is decided
upon for the withdrawal of
Israeli and Syrian troops
and Palestine Liberation
Organization forces.
This was stressed by Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger in a
Pentagon press conference and at
the State Department by spokes-
man John Hughes. Hughes said
that once the plan for withdrawal
is developed the U.S. "would
have to see what the role for the
multinational force would be in
that plan, if it indeed changes."
the multinational force of 3,800
persons expanded to about
30,000 with a wider range of res-
ponsibility in the country.
HUGHES SAID that Presi-
dent Reagan would have to see
whether the multinational force
as it now exists could perform the
mission assigned to it, if one will
be, under the withdrawal agree-
ment and then decide whether to
increase the U.S. forces.
Morris Draper, Deputy Assis-
tant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs,
who is a special envoy for nego-
tiations on Lebanon, began talks
with the Lebanese government
on withdrawal today. He is ex-
pected to go to Israel next and
then to Syria.
According to reports from Bei-
rut, Lebanese Prime Minister
Shafiq Al-Wazzan, who along
with President Amin Gemayel
observed Eichmann's trial, was
one of many who commented on
the Nazi's Jewish looks. "Put a
little hat on his head, and he
could be a member of a kubbutz,''
he noted at the time.
WHEN EICHMANN was
dramatically kidnapped from his
Argentinian home and brought to
Israel in May, 1960, there was
widespread condemnation of the
act. An editorial in the New York
Times characterized reactions:
"No immoral or illegal act justi-
fies another. The rule of law must
protest the most depraved
criminals."
Tribune, suspected there was
more to Eichmann than met the
eye. "Eichmann seemed petty,
certainly not of the stature of a
Goering, but there was that look
of fox-like slyness."
Hannah Arendt, writing for
the New Yorker, coined the
famous phrase the "banality of
evil." But Gideon Hausner,
Israel's Attorney General at the
time, who conducted the prosecu-
tion, fiercely attacks Arendt's in-
terpretation. Hausner agrees that
Eichmann looked like a "bank
teller," but feels Arendt was
being a trendy intellectual who
distorted the truth for the sake of
finding an outlook that deviated
from the accepted one and thus
offered food for thought through
its originality. The truth, accord-
ing to Hausner, was that Eich-
mann was an organizational
genius in his implementation of
the "final solution."
The three Jerusalem judges
agreed with Hausner. The world,
by and large, also agreed. The
Soviet bloc were happy at the
verdict, but condemned much of
the "ludicrous" evidence which
had suggested that their own cit-
izens had helped in exterminating
Jews. The Arab world filled their
magazines with articles claiming
that six million did not really die
and that the holocaust was a "big
lie."
THE WEST followed the trial
closely and learned not only of
the horrors of the concentration
camps but how its leaders knew
and yet did nothing. However,
twenty years of surveys in
America and Europe show that
today's youngsters have inade-
quate knowledge about the holo-
caust. Events like last year's ga-
thering of holocaust surviviors
have helped in publicizing an his-
torical episode that people prefer
to avoid.
A major embarrassment to the
government that seized Eich-
mann was that there were
hundreds of newspaper articles in
Israel assuming the German's
guilt while the matter was still in
court. The press discussed how
Eichmann should be disposed of
long before the inevitable verdict
was reached.
Many, including Martin
Buber, opposed the execution of

As the man who made the final
decision to seize Eichmann,
Israeli Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion took the butt of
criticism. Ben-Gurion's argument
was that the major purpose of the
trial would be educational, to
remind a world that had already
forgotten the scope and gravity
of the crime committed by the
Nazis. Editorials like that carried
by the New York Times soon dis-
appeared when the extent of
Eichmann's acts was revealed.
The gruesome stories told by
witness after witness of Eich-
mann's cruelty cannot be recon-
structed here. Even evidence
from imprisoned fellow Nazis
spoke of his vindktiveness. But
the most macabre aspect of the
trial was Eichmann's "man in the
street" manner. Writer Harrj
Golden recalls the shock of Eich-
mann's initial entry to the Jeru-
salem court in Beith Ha'am in
April, 1981: "There was a gasp.
A gasp not in horror but because
this was such a common, or-
dinary man."
, EICHMANN'S defense ex-
ploited this image of unexcep-
tionality by claiming that he was
a cog in a bureaucratic wheel,
who merely accepted orders.
There was little substantial cor-
roboration of this and much to
suggest the opposite. Many, like
Robert Bird who covered the trial
for the New York Herald
Adolf Eichmann
Eichmann. Some pointed out
that the Jewish State had nevjr I
executed anybody before (and*
has not since). Others were not so
much liberal as vengeful, citing
the obvious, that one death paled
in comparison to the pain suffer-
ed by six million.
REFERENCE was made to
the legendary example of Zeus
who punished Prometheus for
stealing fire by tying him naked
to a mountainside to be eaten
alive by the vultures during the
day and have his organs grow
back at night so he could suffer
the agony anew the following
day. This might not be possible.
but at least, some suggested,!
Eichmann could be made to
stand trial in country after coun-
try where he had set up death
camps.
In any event. Eichmann was
hanged at Ramie prison at mid-
night on May 30, 1962, following
the decision of President Yitzhak
Ben-Zvi not to grant clemency.
Eichmann's ashes were taken
aboard an Israeli naval vesseli
and strewn out at sea. Like tri
people he killed, he would have no
grave to mark his burial, and ap-
propriately it was the Israeli
military, defenders of the people
he tried to liquidate, that bore his
remains on their final journey.
