JERUSALEM (JTA) Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has accused the Reagan Administration of
"clearly violating" its own repeated pledges not to link
economic aid to Israel with political differences between
Jerusalem and Washington. "We regard this very
gravely, indeed We will certainly take action to try to
stop it," Shamir said in a television interview over the
HE SAID that the Administration's opposition to a
move in the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee to
increase military and economic aid to Israel stems from
hopes and efforts to get the Arabs to accept President
Reagan's Middle East peace proposals. The Foreign
Minister stated that this attitude "can only be regarded
as an unfriendly act."
The Foreign Minister said the reasons given for
American hesitation to increase aid hurt Israel more than
the actual state and level of the assistance.
Shamir confirmed that during his recent talks in
Washington there had been no hint of such an
Administration move. Israel must now seek to explain its

Slepak Returns Home
From Exile in Siberia
TORONOTO (JTA) Vladimir Slepakof Moscow,
known as the father of the Jewish emigration effort in the
Soviet Union and one of the leading Jewish refuseniks,
returned to his home last Saturday from exile in Siberia
where he had served a five-year sentence for "malicious
hooliganism," Genya Intrator. chairman of the Canadian
Committee for Soviet Jewry, reported.
SLEPAK'S WIFE, Maria, received a three-year sus-
pended sentence, at the same time her husband was
sentenced, for the dame offense. Her sentence was sus-
pended for medical reasons, Intrator said. Although
Ms. Slepak did not have to go to Siberia, she nevertheless
spent the five years in exile with her husband near the
Chinese border in Tzochto-Changil.

espite the interruptions he was able to
f>mplete his prepared speech. But
Embassy aide Dan Ashbel fared less well in
Marburg where he appeared before
Protestant students in a building owned by
their church.
Hours before Ashbel's arrival, several
thousand youngsters marched through the
city carrying anti-Semitic banners and pro-
claiming their support for the Arab cause.
Later, they occupied the meeting hall and
refused to let Ashbel speak. Police were on
hand but did not intervene. The meeting
was moved to a private home where some
70 students gathered to discuss Middle
East problems with the Israeli diplomat.
BOTH INCIDENTS were typical of a
pattern that has developed in West Ger-
many since the war in Lebanon.
Ambassador Ben Ari has been prevented
from speaking on several other occasions.
Meanwhile, Frankfurt police have
accused the Cologne-based WDR television
station of deliberately organizing a neo-
Nazi demonstration to protest a recent re-
broadcast of the American-made Holocaust
series. According to the police, WDR paid
the neo-Nazis to demonstrate in a crowded
street for the benefit of its cameras. A
WDR spokesman has denied the charge.

Mobutu Enraged'
Was Shamir Successful in Zaire?
Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir described his
three-day visit to Zaire as
"historic" when he re-
turned from that central
African nation. It was the
first official visit by an Is-
raeli Foreign Minister to
Zaire since it broke diplo-
matic relations with Israel
in 1973, during the Yom
Kippur War.
Formal ties were resumed six
months ago. and Israeli officials
were saying that Shamir's visit
bridged the nine-year rupture "as
if it never existed."
Only one formal agreement
was concluded, however, during
Shamir's stay in Kinshasa. It is a
framework for economic coopera-
tion, signed last week. Israel will
provide professional and or-
ganizational guidance in the field
of agriculture.
ISRAEL WILL also grant
military assistance to Zaire. But
it is understood that the two
countries will not sign a broad
military agreement beyond the
military protocol signed by De-
fense M inister Ariel Sharon when
he visited Zaire a year ago.
Officials stressed that Israel
will not sell Zaire Soviet
weaponry captured during the
war in Lebanon last summer.
They played down reports in the
Israeli media that President
Mobuto Sese Seko had angrily
rejected such an offer. According
to some Israeli correspondents
who accompanied Shamir,
Mobutu "raKed" at the reports in
i hi- Israeli media, and because of
them he refused to accept
weapons captured from the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion and the Syrians.
The returning Israeli corres-
pondents also reported that
Shamir's visit aroused great in-
terest in neighboring African na-
tions particularly because the
Foreign Minister was accom-.
panied by a large entourage of Is-
raeli businessmen and industrial-
ists offering investment projects.
This underlined the potential
economic benefits that could de-
velop from the restoration of
diplomatic ties with Israel, the
correspondents reported.
visit triggered partisan political
disputes in Israel. The Labor
Party demanded that Shamir
"tell the entire truth" about his
visit to Zaire and dismissed the
"rosy" reports by the Foreign
Ministry. While government cir-
cles described the military con-
nection between the two coun-
tries as "a very promising one."
and Shamir spoke confidently of
an Israeli "comeback" in Black
Africa, Laborites contended that
Mobutu has reservations over a
defense pact with Israel and fully
supports the PLO.
Mobutu apparently does not
want to worsen his relations with
the Arab countries, already
strained by his resumption of
diplomatic ties with Israel. He
reportedly did not raise the issue
of the PLO in his talks with
Shamir. But at a State banquet
for the Israeli visitor, Zaire's
Foreign Minister, Kamanda Wa
Kamanda. suggested that the
PLO has a role to play in solving
the Palestinian problem.
Kamanda is expected to pay a re-
turn visit to Israel in the next few

both want peace in the Middle East. And to get peace
Israel must be strong and self-confident," Shamir said.
He denied that America was unhappy with Israeli policies
and actions in Lebanon.
"The U.S. welcomed Israel's plans and proposals for
Lebanon when these were first outlined to them," he said.
Shamir denied reports of any forward movement on the
part of the PLO and Syria concerning withdrawal of their
forces from Lebanon. "There has been no progress in their
attitudes," he said.

week. The program provides

D'Amato also told a Zionist

Brandeis Award Banquet here
that the Senate subcommittee
also recommended that a greater
chunk of the aid during fiscal
year 1983 be in the form of a
grant rather than a loan, as was
the case in fiscal 1982.
THE SENATOR told the 300
banquet guests that during fiscal
year 1982. assistance totaled $1.4
billion of which $550 million was
in the form of a direct grant to
Israel. "The President had re-
quested a funding level of $1.7
billion for similar assistance
during fiscal year '83," D'Amato
said. "According to the Presi-
dent's proposal, $1.2 billion
would have been in the form of a
loan while the remaining $5
million would have been provided
through grants."
Trade Minister Meets
With Africa Delegates
To Strengthen Ties
Gideon Patt, Israel's
Minister of Industry and
Trade, who was here at-
tending the GATT (General
Agreement on Tariffs and
Trade) ministerial confe-
rence, met with delegates of
four Black African coun-
tries which have no diplo-
matic relations with Israel.
He said after his meetings that
the delegates told him they hoped
Israel will strengthen its com-
mercial and industrial ties with
their countries. Patt said they
hinted that the trade contacts
might very well hasten the re-
sumption of diplomatic relations
with Israel and expressed hope
that Israel would provide their
countries with its commerical,
trade and industrial know-how.
PATT SAID he told the dele-
gates that the failure of the
recent Organization of African
Unity (OAU) conference in
Tripoli demonstrated the gap
existing between the interests of
the Arab and the Black African
The four delegates, in turn,
said that as a result of the failure
of the OAU'8 conference to re-
solve differences in the perspec-
tives of the Arab and Black
African members of the organiza-
tion, the Black African states will
have to reconsider their policy
toward the Arab states and that
this might have a positive in-
fluence on the resumption of
diplomatic relations with Israel.
The delegates were bitter

about the fact that the OAU had
been turned by the Arabs into a
political forum for their ob-
jectives and partisan needs in-
stead of working within the or-
ganization to assist in developing
Black Africa. Patt said.
Black African nations broke
their diplomatic relations with
Israel at the time of the Yom
Kippur War, under Arab
pressure and promises from Arab
nations that they would provide
the economic wherewithal that
Israel had been providing from
many years. Israel presently has

Jewish Self-Criticism
In the spirit of Chanukah, the 30th
World Zionist Congress is meeting in Israel
now, and reports from Jerusalem show just
how unsettled Jews are today. Largely,
there is the uncomfortable feeling that the
Israeli operation in Lebanon has exposed
them to criticism from other nations of the
world for their seemingly uncritical support
of the Jewish state.
Whether or not Israel deserves
criticism for its campaign in Lebanon is a
question we have talked about in these
columns frequently in the past. Our single
consideration now is rather to observe with
growing embarrassment just how uncom-
fortable Jews are and that this discomfort
apparently lies like a pall over the agenda
of the World Zionist Congress in Jeru-
This is a pity. Predominantly, for
example, it gives strength of heart to the
Reagan Administration as it stand deter-
mined to persuade Congress not to increase
United States military and economic aid to
Israel beyond the $2.5 billion
We do not suggest that the President
and his aides would be persuaded very
much to change their mind were the atmos-
phere in Jerusalem different. It more
probably is true that nobody on Capitol
Hill really cares about the deliberations in
Jerusalem one way or the other. And that
there is not too much concern for just how
American Jews feel about the Administra-
tion's anti-Israel actions these days either.
But the fact is that the timidity of
heart Jews feel about Israel and Lebanon
will be used against them as a bottom line
argument when the Administration finds
need for one at some future time. On that
certainty, we can bet.
None of this means that Jews, like
anyone else, do not have the right to dis-
sent. Rabbi Alexander Schindler, of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations,
said as much in Denver this week before a
Reform Jewish gathering. He argued that
Jews who dissent are not guilty of treason
either. There is no doubt that he is correct,
but that to have raised the question of
treason was an unfortunately excessive
example of zeal one which may bite all
our backs someday by those bent on mis-
chief against us.
Editor's Note: Our new corres-
pondent in Israel, Miss Yakir
(photo attached/, was born
Adrianne Hendrix in Columbus,
0. She converted to Judaism at
Ohio State io 1973 and is now a
I citizen of Israel, married to a Jew
of Spanish-Iraqui descent.
Today is my wedding day. I
am full of excitement but I am
also pensive. For six years I have
been living in Israel, without see-
ing any of the family I grew up
with when I was Adrianne Hen-
drix in Columbus, Ohio. But I
have a family here: my kibbutz
A kibbutz is a communal farm
and industrial settlement in
which all the members work to-
gether to support the settlement
as a whole, taking no salaries and
sharing in the labor, child care,
cooking, laundry and other tasks.
Families live in individual apart-
ments and children are cared for
in "children's houses" during the
day (and on some kibbutzim at
night, too). Parents and young-
sters eat together in a communal
dining room or in their apart-
My thoughts flash back to my
first days in Israel, when I was
petrified because I didn't know
the Hebrew language. After my
arrival at Ben-Gurion Interna-
tional Airport, two airport atten-
dants sensed my problem and
helped me get on a bus to Tel
Aviv, where I would board
another bus for Kibbutz Ein
Zurim. I was met by Rafi, the
director of the "Ulpan," or inten-
sive Hebrew studies program,
which I would be joining in a few
After I unpacked my things in
my new room, Rafi escorted me
to the dining room. Actually,
during that week we would be
eating outside in an enormous
thatched hut, to celebrate the
holiday of Sukkot, the Feast of
The following morning, at 6
a.m., I was awakened by the
sound of Rafi whistling down the
path to the Ulpan building, which
housed 30 students from 18 dif-
ferent countries. Rafi had come to
intriduce us to our housemother,
Aya, and our Ulpan teachers,
Hadassah and Esther. Aya fitted
each of us with work clothes, in-
cluding shoes. Hadassah. and
Esther gave us a brief description
of what to expect from our Ulpan
program. Rafi gave us our work
We would attend Hebrew
classes four hours a day and work
in the kibbutz four hours a day. I
would be working in the kitchen
for two weeks, and then I would
be rotated to various other parts
of the kibbutz, including the
orchards, laundry, turkey coops,
cowsheds, dining hall and chil-
dren's houses. The members of
the kibbutz are also rotated from
job to job. This ensures equality
among the members. Everyone is
expected to do some "dirty"
In my second week on the kib-
butz, each Ulpan student was as-
signed a family, which would be
our adopted family during our
five-month stay. I was "adopted"
by the Achitov family, which has
six children, ranging in age at the
time from one year to 18 years
old. Having only one natural
brother, I was excited about hav-
ing six brothers and sisters.
The Achitov family is of Ger-
man-Polish extraction. My being

My attachment to the Achitol

best friends, also became part J

Ulpan ended, I could not heart
leave. I continued to work a...
volunteer, receiving room J

ficulty that I finally left Kibbu
Ein Zurim in order to study a I

Rtght-Wing Lebanese Says
Treaty With Israel Should Be Signed
Ettienne Sacre, leader of
the ultra-rightwing
"Guardians of the Cedars"
movement in Lebanon,
declared here that Lebanon
should not only sign a
formal peace treaty with
Israel but also a treaty of
mutual defense, and fully
backed Israel's terms for
withdrawing its forces from
Sacre, a Maronite Christian
also known as Abu Arz, demand-
ed that all Palestinians be forced
to leave Lebanon and claimed
that the Syrians and the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion "are now already coining
back to Beirut."
He refused to condemn the
massacre of Palestinians in the
Shatila and Sabra refugee camps
in west Beirut last September,
calling the killings a Lebanese
reaction to "eight years of bloody
fighting and killings" which
culminated in the assassination
of Lebanon's President-Elect
Bashir Gemayel, leader of the
Christian Phalangists.
DURING HIS two-day visit to
Israel, Sacre and his associates
were received by Premier
Menachem Begin and met with
officials of the Foreign Ministry
and members of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs Committee.
The far-right movement he
heads was founded in 1973 as a
military and political force aimed
at ousting all foreigners from
Lebanon. The movement is de-
scribed as a small, tightly knit
unit amonK the various Christian
militias of which Gemayel's
Phalangists are the major force.
Sacre attacked Lebanon's in
rumbent Moslem Prime Minister,
Shafik A-Wazzan, as a member of
the "old guard of corrupt
politicians" and denounced him
for making anti-Israel state-
ments. He endorsed the Israeli
position that negotiations with
Lebanon on the withdrawal of
foreign forces should take place
"on a very high level, in Beirut
and in Jerusalem, leading not
only toward peace but toward a
defense treaty."
SACRE AGREED with Israel
that the withdrawal of the PLO
and the Syrian army should
precede withdrawal by Israeli
forces. "Otherwise the Syrians
and the PLO will come back to
Beirut, and they are now already
coming back to Beirut."
He said he would like to see all
Palestinians out of Lebanon be-
cause "They abused Lebanese
hospitality and posed a
demographic problem for the
country. Let them go to the Arab
countries. They are rich and
empty,'' Sacre said.

Jumblatt narrowly escaped aa

was driving in west Beir

EDITOR: The Jewish Floridian;
With the revival of anti-
Semitism disguised as Anti-
Zionism now running rampant,
we, who well recall the anti-
Semitism of the 1930s and the
1940*8. including that which we

in World War II. thought the fol-
lowing quotation of Sam
Levenson to be of interest to all
your readers.

Boca Lago Grows With 3 New Leaders
The 1983 Federation-UJA

and bounds at Boca Lago, as
three new leaders are appointed.

tional Fund, the Weitzman

Starting his first year as
chairman of the Palms, Weiner
showed a very positive attitude
going in when he said, "It is my
objective to at least double the
1982 donations. With God's help
and health, it will be done!"
Returning as chairman of the
Glades this year is Marvin
Nusbaum. Nusbaum was
chairman of Glades in 1980 after
he moved to Boca Lago with his
wife Barbara in 1979. Nusbaum

about his new position, when he
says "It's a job that has to be

excellent results."

American Jewish Congress
is announcing a campaign
to compel major U.S. cor-
porations to reveal the ex-
tent of their efforts to influ-
ence American foreign
policy particularly in the
Middle East when such
lobbying does not advance
the interests of the com-
pany or its stockholders.
The Jewish public affairs or-
ganization is sponsoring share-
holder resolutions asking
management officials of 23 major
companies to report on the nature
and cost of lobbying efforts dur-
ing the 1981 debate on the sale of
AW ACS planes to Saudi Arabia.
Announcement of the program
was made by Howard M. Squa-
dron, president of AJCongress.
THE LOBBYING inquiry will
cover corporations that have
been identified as actively lobby-
ing in favor of the sale of the sur-
veillance planes to the Saudis
during last year's controversy.
The companies include such
giants as American Airlines,
Ford, Eastern, Greyhound, Hal-
liburton and Mobil.
Holders of substantial
amounts of stock in each com-
pany have submitted identical
resolutions to management ask-
ing it to report to stockholders on
the following:
What concrete steps were
taken to influence congressional
debate and public opinion on
AW ACS last year;
The estimated amount of
company funds spent on
AWACS lobbying during 1981
and lobbying on general Middle
East issues during the past year;
What part of these lobbying
expenses will be claimed as tax
deductible because they are
legitimate business expenses;
Projected management
plans for additional lobbying
activities on Mideast matters in
the next 12 months;
How lobbying on Mideast
issues has advanced the interests
of the corporation.
"WHAT WE are questioning
is an unusual lobbying effort that
ultimately resulted in approval of
the proposed AWACS sale," ex-
plained Will Maslow. general
counsel of the American Jewish
Congress, who is directing the
campaign. "It now appears that
the AWACS sale was saved from
Senate defeat by massive, unpre-
cedented corporate lobbying."
He contended that many of the
corporations involved had no
stake in the sale of the AWACS
or had no business links to Saudi
Arabia. They involved them-
selves in the lobbying, he ex-
plained, "because they were led
to believe by the Administration
and others that appeasing the
Saudis on the sale was critical to
the U.S. economy. This resulted
in the most far reaching effort by
American companies to influence
foreign policy since World War
Maslow said corporate efforts
to influence public opinion on for-
eign policy issues "usually con-
stitute a waste of corporate
funds," especially since the In-
