Shamir on Tour Of *T TZZ'201**
Argentina, Uruguay
Be A Gala Evening
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has left on a 12-day
official visit to Argentina
and Uruguay in face of
criticism from many quar-
ters in Israel over the Likud
government's apparent
friendship with rightwing
dictatorial regimes.
Shamir's reply was that Israel
is not free to choose its friends
according to the nature of their
intirnal politics. He noted that he
was invited to Argentina by
President Renaldo Bignonone
and to Uruguay by President
Gregorio Alvarez to meet with
them and their foreign ministers.
HE POINTED out that he has
visited a number of Latin Ameri-
can states in the past, including
Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia,
Ecuador and the Dominican
Republic with regimes that vary
from democratic to authoritarian.
The Foreign Minister stressed
that he would not be discussing
arms sales to Argentina and Uru-
guay since that was outside his
province. But he promised that in
Argentina he would try to find
out what happened to the many
Jews who have disappeared after
Israel Must Return to Old Borders,
UN Resolution Declares
- The General Assembly passed
a resolution by a vote of 113-4
with 23 abstentions declaring
that "a comprehensive, just and
lasting peace in the Middle East
cannot be established without the
unconditional withdrawal of
Israel from the Palestinian and
other Arab territories occupied
since 1967, including Jerusalem."
The United States, Canada,
Costa Rica and Israel voted
against the resolution, which is
non-binding, at the Assembly
session last Friday.
The measure, which made no
reference to Israel's right to
exist, also asked the Security
Council to "recognize the in-
alienable rights of the Palestinian
Arab people, including the right
to self-determination and the
right to establish its independent
Arab state in Palestine." Under
the terms of the resolution, the
Council would take steps to bring
about the creation of such a state.
THE AMERICAN delegate,
William Sherman, criticized the
resolution as an attempt to pre-
judge the nature of a Mideast
settlement. He added, however
that the Assembly measure rep-
resented "the beginning of a
more generalized effort at ac-
commodation" because it did not
condemn past U.S. initiatives
such as the Camp David accords
and President Reagan's Mideast
In another action, a call for all
UN member-states to support
preparations for an international
conference on Palestine next
August passed by a vote of 123-2
with 17 abstentions. Israel and
the U.S. voted against it.
The conference, to be held in
Paris at the headquarters of the
UN Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization, was de-
nounced by Ambassador Yehuda
Blum of Israel as "another act of
narcissistic excess." He said both
resolutions "deliberately ignore
the inalienable rights of Israel
and the Jewish community."
police and security forces arrests
in recent years.
He admitted that this was a
very delicate subject and he
preferred not to expand on it
before his departure. The Labor
Party has issued a statement
criticizing Shamir's trip to
Argentina. He pointed out that
the military junta in Buenos
Aires was responsible for the
disappearance of thousands of
Argentine citizens, including
hundreds of Jews suspected of
"I AM AWARE of this
problem and I will do my best,"
Shamir said. He told reporters at
Ben Gurion Airport that he was
also aware of the growing im-
portance of Latin America in
world politics and the world eco-
According to some reports
here, the Jewish community in
Argentina had asked Shamir to
reconsider his visit to their
country because of the current
tensions there. Shamir said he
planned to spend time with local
Jewish communities wherever he
goes and would also preside over
a meeting of Israeli Ambassadors
in the region.

News in Brief
Teller Advises Two Nuclear Reactors
By JTA Report
physicist, Dr. Edward Teller, has
advised the Israeli governent to
build both nuclear reactors as de-
terrents against attacks and a
nuclear power plant for the na-
tion's energy needs.
Teller offered these recommen-
dations during a lecture on "Per-
spectives on the Energy Prob-
lem" at the Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity of the Negev. The "Father of
the Hydrogen Bomb" was in Is-
rael last week to advise the
government on its energy needs.
Any contemplated nuclear
facility would most likely be lo-
cated in the Negev region and re-
lated to the existing desert re-
search projects currently being
conducted by Ben Gurion Uni-
versity as part of the Univer-
sity's overall program of helping
to build the region, which consti-
tutes Israel's largest underde-
veloped land mass, a university
spokesman said.
"If you in Israel want to build
nuclear reactors, I think you
should as a precaution against
aerial bombardment," Teller
said. He suggested that the
government develop an under-
ground nuclear power station.
Mission to Visit Honduras;
No Arms Deal Signed
TEL AVIV Defense Minis-

for the Central American country
next month but denied reports
that he had signed any arms sales
deals with Honduran officials
during his brief stay in
Tegucigalpa, the capital, last
According to Sharon, the mili-
tary mission to Honduras is part
of a general program to
strengthen Israel's military co-
operation with Latin American
Sharon told reporters that he
had not met with U.S. officials in
Washington during his latest trip
because no such meetings had
been planned. "I did not request
any meetings before leaving for
America, and neither did I re-
quest any meetings during my '
stay in the U.S.," he said.

Chanukah, Christmas, Bigotry: TIw Fight for Freedom
The democratic process in America is
long and involved. Things occur slowly, in-
cluding progress toward human freedom
and justice. This may make many of us
impatient, but our history demonstrates
that progress through change, when it
finally takes place, is far more permanent
than it would be otherwise.
That is precisely what happened twice
in Miami last week, as the struggle toward
human freedom and justice ground its
wheel slowly one more turn one more time.
In West Miami, the battle over an
official display of a Menorah, Star of David
and a dreidel the city's tribute to
Chanukah stood side by side outside
City Hall with a Christmas display.
It may be argued that the struggle to
mount religious displays on public
property creches and Christmas trees
has been a losing battle and a bruising
battle, as well, over the years. And so why
should the Jewish community not enjoy
equal treatment on Chanukah? Doesn't
that make the sense of alleged Jewish
"isolation" from the rest of the community
on this holiday season less acute?
The problem is best exemplified by the
dull-witted display of that giant cross every
Christmas at the top of the Dade County
Court House, and we don't see how similar

Political leaders are often judged by
the way their opposition talks about them.
In the case of Miami's Kenneth Myers,
even those who on occasion did not agree
with him when he was a Florida State
Senator serving in the Legislature in
Tallahassee rarely if ever spoke of him in
terms other than laudatory.
It is a mark of the esteem in which
Sen. Myers was held that when he decided
not to run again, there was a general feeling
of disappointment, not only in the elec-
torate, but among his colleagues as well,
both from the north and the south of the
state, who recognized and admired the high
quality of his performance.
Now, Sen. Myers' former constituents
in South Florida have honored him by the
establishment of the Kenneth M. Myers
Bayside Park in Coconut Grove. They have
thus done more than feel regret that he is
no longer serving us in the State Senate;
they have expressed their gratitude for his
enlightened leadership in Tallahassee while
he was there.
This sort of living monument to a
distinguished community leader too often
comes toward the end of one's creative
years. But Sen. Myers again defies the
stereotypes. He is still a young man with
an enviable reputation for past per-
formance and who holds out every promise
of continued active service in the future.
The son of a pioneer Miami family at the
head of which stand distinguished national
and community leaders in their own right,
Stanley and Martha Myers, he demon-
strates that the apple has not fallen far
from the tree.
The Kenneth M. Myers Bayside Park
frames all of these things into a happy
portrait of dedicated service and a grateful
Miami's reaction to it.

Chanukah displays (naturally, not on the

more appropriate.
And it took a Jewish West Miamian,
one David Wineberger, to say so to
stand up to the jeers and criticism of his
simple statement: "the government has no
business getting involved with religion."
Will Wineberger prevail in the end?
Perhaps not this time, especially judging
by the Federal court ruling in Colorado last
year that gives approval to Christmas dis-
plays on public property on the basis
that Christmas is after all a commercial en-
terprise! But, as we have said, it is a step in
the ultimate direction of shaping our nation
within the context of its own laws govern-
ing human freedoms.
Ditto for the case in the environs of
Miami Beach, which last week caused the
Bal Harbour Club, the head of a miniscule
hydra of bigotry and prejudice, finally to
drop its anti-Semitic exclusionary practice
of barring Jewish membership in the club
and of the purchase by Jews of home sites
in Bal Harbour on the basis that Bal
Harbour home-owners must first be bone

Catch-22 situation if ever there was one.
Did Phil Skolnik, a Jewish Texan who
filed a $ 10 million dollar anti-discrimination
in housing suit against the Bal Harbour
Club, thus forcing the club finally to give
up, in fact bring the club to heel? We doubt
it. After all, the Bal Harbour Club was do-
ing what came naturally to its white only,
Gentile constituency for three and a half
decades and more. And the Federal govern-
ment in 1968 ruled that housing discrimin-
ation was unconstitutional.
How did the club get away with its
anti-Semitism all those years? Well, that is
less important than that Skulnik and
another couple, Vincent and Elaine San-
tucci, finally forced the club to acimow-
ledge it must change its ways.
But don't expect it to happen over
night. The wheels of justice do grind
slowly. But permanently, we hope.
Norman Mayer's Message of Pain
FOR ONE brief moment last
week, Norman Mayer held the
attention of the nation. Out of a
sense of deep frustration and
resentment, that is exactly what
Mayer wanted as, presumably, he
also held hostage the safety of
the Washington Monument.
But this was no ordinary
criminal action. Mayer was not
seeking the national attention to
focus on himself. It was not an
ego trip on which he had em-
barked to demonstrate that he
too can perform a deed worthy of
mass media attention.
WHAT MAYER wanted was
to emphasize his feelings about
the Administration's nuclear
arms policy and how it affects the
nuclear arms policy of the Soviet
Union. And hence, too, how it
affects the world.
No one would listen to him,
Mayer knew, as an anonymous
Miami Beach custodial worker.
And so, he committed his act of
rebellion. In the name of his
cause. Mayer threatened to blow
up the Washington Monument,
where he died hours later in a hail
of police bullets.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Reagan's Tactic: Inspire Fear
In Ranks of Labor, U.S. Jews
At the core of President
Reagan's proposal for the
West Bank (Judea and
Samaria) and Gaza is the
assumption that he can
count on certain fears ex-
pressed by Israel's Labor
opposition and many
Americans regarding the
preservation of the Jewish
character of Israel. These
fears are usually couched in
terms of "saving" Israel
from having to absorb the
1.1 million Arab inhabi-
tants in these territories.
Thus, Ronald Reagan presents
himself as the true benefactor of
Israel in opposition to Prime
Minister Begin who is depicted
by the administration as ob-
sessed with security and Biblical
delusions. Little is said about Is-
rael's need to control the
strategic hinterland of both Jeru-
salem and Tel Aviv. Nor are we
told that whatever the eventual
status of West Bank Arabs, Is-
rael will never allow this territory
to become a "home" for the mil-
lions more Palestinian emigre
Arabs residing in the surround-
ing countries. Most Americans
probably don't realize that the
West Bank is not much larger
than the greater New York
metropolitan area.
policy seeks to ensure that
neither Judea, Samaria nor Gaza,
in whole or in part, will again
come under Arab sovereignty.
Reagan accordingly can be ex-
pected to accelerate emphasis on
the presumably unwanted Arab
inhabitants in these territories.
How ironic that the bane of the
American Left, Ronald Reagan,
is becoming their darling where
Israel is concerned.
Few admit that his current ini-
tiative is intended more to
placate Arab sensitivities than to
bring peace. Yet the Reagan plan
rests on presumed fears that Is-
rael per se is less secure with the
absorption of the territories in
question. In an America increas-
ingly disillusioned with Reagan's
overall performance, Reagan may
come to see his fortunes riding in
part on the image he can project
as a true benefactor of the Jewish
State even as he seeks to displace
the only democratically elected
government in the region.
Indeed, he might even hope to
gain a sympathy vote by stand-
ing up to "big, bad Israel." For
such reasons, a closer examina-
tion of the assumptions under-
lying Reagan's attack on Israel's
settlements policy is certainly in
IN OUR own security interest,
1 we should wish to see a secure Is-
rael in Western Palestine and a
deepening of its democratic roots
as well. Israel must remain a po-
tent ally. As such we should
avoid threatening calls for the es-
tablishment of a Palestinian
Arab "homeland" in her very
midst. We should not be
frightened into believing that Is-
rael's progressive aspirations are
not sustainable with absorption
of the West Bank. Democratic
solutions are possible to the Arab
population "threat" on this terri-
The Arab inhabitants of the
West Bank are Jordanian citizens
and, therefore, enemy nationals
vis-a-vis Israel under the rules of
war. Their political status is thus
best left for determination in the
context of Israeli-Jordanian
peace negotiations as envisioned
in Camp David. At such time, the
West Bank Arabs could exercise
one of several options.
They might wish to retain Jor-
danian citizenship in co-existence
with increasing numbers of Is-
raelis living around them. Al-
ternately, they might opt for Is-
raeli citizenship but of course,
would have to bear the responsi-
bilities entailed, including some
form of national service. As with
an equal responsibility for na-
tional service, the transfer of so-
cial service responsibilities from

Jewry Rally sponsored by the

ation with the South Palm Beach

her husband, two children and
Speaking in perfect English

the over 500 people assembled
that our cultures were so dif-
ferent that it is almost impossible
for an American Jew to under-
stand the plight and the sorrow
of their Russian brothers and
She told of the human suffer-
ing of her friends she left behind.
Besides those who are in prison,
she talked of the plight of those
who were just waiting, her
friends with higher education
who are not allowed to work. She
spoke of one engineer who, since
he applied for the right to make
Aliyah to Israel, is now working
as a janitor. Another friend is a
PHD in history who subsists on a
night watchman's salary. She
stressed that these people merely
live from day to day with very
little hope. She indicated that we
are their only thread of hope left.
Mrs. Kranc told of the return
of religion amongst her fellow
Russian Jews. When she grew
up, she knew nothing of her
religious heritage, but she
returned with the help of other
Jews who clandestinely study
She stressed that all nationali-
ties are somewhat oppressed in
the Soviet Union, but they do
have ethnic festivals and
religious academies. Only the
Jews are allowed nothing. "We
lost connection with our roots
because of this. Refusniks have
helped many people, including
me, to know that we are Jews,"
said Mrs. Kranc.
She stressed that it is truly
dangerous to study Hebrew with
other Refusnicks; while she did
she was constantly afraid
because the KGB had them all
under surveillance.
In her final appeal to those as-
sembled, she asked all American
Jews to tell their politicans, tell
the world that the Jewish com-
munity of the Soviet Union needs
their help. She finished what was
a very emotional evening with
this plea for our continued in-
terest and involvement in the
plight of Soviet Jewry.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Friday, December 24,
Academic Conference for Hebrew University
The most electrifying ex-
perience for the people of South
County took place at TemDle
Beth-El on the evening of Dec. 8.
Two "Giants" from Israel spoke
about the world anti-Semitism,
its impact on world Jewry and
the situation in Israel today.
The speakers were former
Ambassador Simcha Dinitz who
is presently a vice-president of
Hebrew University and senior
fellow of the University's Ins-
titute for International Relations,
and Professor Yehuda Bauer who
is head of the department for
Holocaust studies and Academic
Chairman of the Institute's
International Committee.
Professor Bauer dealt with the
existence of anti-Semitism during
the earliest period in history.
Today, some of the most vicious
attacks come out of the Soviet
Union. In 1971 a book was
written by a Russian called
"Beware of Zionism." Vast
numbers of this book impugn
"The Hebrew Bible" as the
blackest book in the world, and
condemn the parasitic existence
of Jews who are committed to
destroying civilization. The
infamous "Protocols of the
Elders of Zion" are still in great
demand in Russia and although
Russia has only 1.7 million Jews,
its most violent attacks are upon
"Why? Hbw can one fight it
without knowing the reasons for
it?" said Professor Bauer.
For some of those answers, a
"Research Center" for the study
of anti-Semitism has been created
at the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, with "some support
coming from some members of
established Christianity.
There exists today an Institute
of Historical Review which denies
the Holocaust, and many profes-
sors circulate this propaganda to
their history classes. The great-
est dangers come from the intel-
lectuals who write the books and
promulgate these lies.
In the UN, the attack on Israel
is an attack on Jews, and
although the language is classic
anti-Semitism. it is being
repeated by the Third World
people in whose countries there

This is Rubin Tebeleff's second
year working for the South
County Jewish Federation in the
Fairways of Boca Lago. Tebeleff
was very active in Washington,
D.C. on the Board of his local
synagogue, on the Board of Di-
rectors of the Boys Club of
Washington, as a member of the
Big Brothers Club, and as presi-
dent of the Georgetown Branch
of the Optimist Club.
Since moving to Boca Lago,
Tebeleff has spent three years on
the Board of Directors, and one
year as president of the Fairways
Joining Rubin Tebeleff as Co-
Chairmen of the Fairways, is
Gerson "Gary" Bernstein. Bern-
stein and his wife Rose have been
spending half the year at Boca
Lago since 1977, while still
spending time at their home in
West Hartford, Conn. Extremely
active up north, Bernstein is still
involved as Vice President of the
Hartford Jewish Federation. He
is also a member of the board of
Hartford Jewish Community
Center; Hebrew Home and Hos-
pital; and the Paul and Bees
Sigel Hebrew Academy. He was
an incorporator of the Mt. Sinai
Hospital in Hartford and a Co-
Chairman of the Hartford branch
of American Friends of Boys
Town Jerusalem.
Bernstein was given the Man
of the Year award at the Paul and

"Why anti-Semitism?"
questioned Professor Bauer.
Where does it come from? If
everyone hates us we must be
guilty? Although the Jewish
people are no better and no worse
than other people we are
different. We are the heirs of a
great tradition that is different.
The concept of one God and the
equality of all human beings has
been a revolutionary concept.
Who is the target? He who is
different. In 1982 anti-Semitism
is related to this hypothesis.
The Lebanese Crisis triggered
the latest anti-Semitism as did
the distortions in the media. We
must be aware that anti-Zionism
is anti-Semitism and the
Research Center at Hebrew
University will provide the
weapons, the tools to fight it. One
hundred scientists, Christians.
Jews, media people, theologians
and social scientists, will
establish the roots to study and
analyze, to train students, to
conduct seminars which should
have an impact on the world.
"We must recognize that the
danger is there," said Professor
Bauer, "and we must do some-
thing to change it."
Ambassador Dinitz spoke of
the dangers facing Israel today.
The Peace for Galilee War was a
complex and complicated war. It
was the first one that Israel did
not fight in desert and hills. They
had to fight in Lebanon but not
against the Lebanese people.
The PLO used the civilian
population as shelters for them-
selves, as an umbrella to cloud
their sinister design. The world
allowed the PLO to continue their
operations but the Israeli soldier
often 18, 19, or 20 years old had
to make on the spot value
judgments about shooting where
civilians were concerned. Very
often this was at the risk of their
own lives and to date there have
been 450 casualties.
In the world's view suddenly
Israel became the Goliath and the
PLO the David; the media un-
truths and distortion fueling the
fire of hatred.
As for the Shatilla and Sabra
incident, Ambassador Dinitz said
t'lut mavbe their judgment erred
in allowing the Christian Phal-
angists in, but the world casting
moral judgments on Israel is
excessive; the Israelis are judg-
ing themselves. The proportion of
media venom is so outrageous
that a newspaper pictured a Star
of David made out of burnt
Ambassador Dinitz went on to
tell about a talmudic scholar,
Professor Auerbach who was
asked to write about his request
to write about his request for an
immediate inquiry into Shatilla
and Sabra. When he submitted
his piece, it was rejected by Time
magazine because it was not
critical of Israel. There has been a
concerted effort to distort in the
media, but one commentator he
noted, that wrote and spoke the
truth, was George Wills.
"Wars do produce some poli-
tical opportunities," said Dinitz.
With the PLO militarily
defeated, it might be possible to
solve the Palestinian issue with

Israeli Child Voices
Theme Of Our Mission
I am one of the fortunate eigh-
teen South County-ites to have
participated recently in Study
Mission No. 1 led by James and
Margie Baer.
During a visit to a Youth Vil-
lage outside of Tel Aviv, each of
us was assigned a guide. This
children's center, greatlv sup-
ported by Federation, houses 280
children who, because of various
problems, cannot live at home.
My guide, eleven year old
Annette, gave me the red carpet
tour of the premises. With great
persona] pride she showed me the
beautiful dormitories, well
staffed buildings, and introduced
me to some of the teachers.
Annette informed me that all the
boys and girls have respective
chores and are responsible for the
upkeep of the grounds, etc. She
enabled me to see all facets of a
superbly run sleep-away school.
As a former educator, it was
obvious to me that these children
were educationally well equipped,
coupled with a strong sense of
security. They were a fantastical-
ly happy group of boys and girls,
manifesting no signs of having
come from disadvantaged homes
thanks to the proper atmos-
phere created by teachers, the
principal and other personnel.
Thus, they are exceptionally well
prepared to embark on their mili-1
tary stint at the age of eighteen.

and handing it back to me she
stated, "You kip (keep) it, so you

Her final words are ringing in
my ears for they are indeed the

clients found to have domestic
violence problems.
Friedman said the study data
i ho wed that abuse of children
was higher than abuse of spouses
for both Jewish and non-Jewish
families. He said 6.1 percent of
violence-affected Jewish families
were found to have problems of
abuse of their children, compared
with 15.8 percent of non-Jewish
families. The data showed that
1.6 percent of the Jewish families
with domestic violence had in-
stances of abuse of siblings,
presumably by each other, com-
pared with 4.1 percent of non-
Jewish families with domestic
violence problems.
The data also showed that 1.4
percent of the Jewish families'
had instances of abuse of parents,
compared with 2.1 percent of the
non-Jewish families. The spokes-
person said this apparently re-
ferred to abuse of elderly parents
by grown children with whom
they lived.
that the study did not find much
statistical difference in incidence
of domestic violence between
white versus non-white family
clients, and no difference between
poor and well-to-do parents.
Friedman concluded his report
by asserting there is an "enor-
mous" amount of ignorance
about abuse of spouses and esti-
mated the incidence of such
abuse of wives was probably
about 25 percent more than the
roughly one in 20 reported for the
1,800 Jewish families with such
domestic problems-

ful relations with the Jewish
State of Palestine. These two
states have enough economic
matters to manage in common to
warrant establishing a confedera-
tion, with the Jordan River as its
living artery.
St 01 others would claim that
the petro-industrial complex,
with its growing power base in
the Western democracies, will
work against such a solution to
the problem of Palestine because
of its ties to Arab oil and money.
Since the Saudis pay protection
money to the terrorist PLO, it
will be argued, any plans for the
area must first be cleared
through the PLO command.
Despite what Europeans say,
however, the United States
should display leadership for
peace and security. We should
not be deterred from supporting a
constructive evolution in Pales-
tine because of inordinate fears
about not being able to continue
to recycle petrodollars back to
America through the various
feudal entities in Arabia. We can
indeed have both peace and
money, on condition that we
don't flinch.
IN SUM, Israel can absorb the
West Bank, grant autonomy to
its Arab inhabitants, and safe-
guard its Jewishness too. Unlike
the outright expulsion that some
in Israel have advocated, this can
furthermore be done with civility
and according to democratic pro-
cedures. It would be a mistake for
Americans to oppose Israel's na-
tional enterprise in the highlands
of Western Palestine surrounding
Jerusalem because of erroneous
or loose assumptions. If Reagan
wishes to oppose expanded Is-
raeli settlement on the West
Bank because of a rational petro-
dollar or "Arabist" view of the
U.S. national interest, so be it.
Rut let him not think that such a
perspective is necessarily in the
best interests of the Jewish
Israel's enterprise is not "im-
perialism" or "manifest destiny"
as practiced in our own past, but
rather security in its most pro-
found sense the geopolitical
integrity and stability of one still
small but great ally. Yes, Israel's
settlements policy is also good
for America.

Iraq-Iran War Unsettles Arab World
Continued from Page 5
as to establish a clone of his own
fundamentalist regime in Bagh-
dad. And Saddam Hussein has
failed to secure Iraqi domination
over the Shatt el Arab waterway.
Similarly the attempts by each
country to foment internal
rebellion in the other has so far
failed. Approximately 55 percent
of Iraq's population are Shiite
Moslems. As in most other Arab
countries with Sunni leaderships,
they constitute the under-privi-
leged sections of the population.
Saddam Hussein's fear has been
that the Shiites might heed Kho-
meini's clarion call to rise and
overthrow their Sunni Baathist
IN A successful bid to stave oft
this threat, the Baathist regime
has bent over backwards to
placate them. Five Shiites are
now represented in the Baghdad
cabinet. Some $49 million has
been poured in to restore and give
face-lifts to the formerly
neglected Shiite shrines in Iraq.
Evidence suggests that at the be-
ginning of the war Shiite troops
were used as cannon fodder
against Iranian artillery. Now the
Baghdad regime is lavishly com-
pensating bereaved Shiite fami-
lies with houses, land, cars and
liberal pensions that the State's
coffers can ill afford.
The policy seems to have
reaped benefits. With the notable
exception of the radical Da'wa
party which was responsible
for the massive car bomb explo-
sion outside Baghdad's Planning
Ministry last August Iraqi
Shiites have made clear that their
allegiance is determined by na-
tional rather than religious sec-
tarian considerations.
Although the Kurds in Iraq are
not as numerous as the Shiites,
they have managed to weaken
the Iraqi war effort by frequently
engaging Saddam's troops in
mountain skirmishes. Observers
believe that the recently dis-
closed clandestine talks between
Baathist officials and Jalai Tala-
bani's Patriotic Union of Kurdis-
tan were designed to free Iraqi
troops from patrolling trouble-
some Kurdish areas, so enabling
them to confront the Iranian
threat from the Northeast and a
likely winter offensive near Basra
in the South.
THE MAIN Kurdish bodies
however the National Party
and the Islamic Party remain
tenaciously allied to Iran, accept-
ing Iranian financing despite the
fact that the Ayatollah has just
wiped out the Iranian version of
the KNP. The Iranians have also
managed to forge a new Iraqi dis-
sident militia the National
Democratic and Patriotic Front
in Northern Iraq.
The war is showing greater
India Refuses
signs of strain on the Iraqis. The
fact that Baghdad requested (and
received) $30 billion of aid from
Saudi Arabia and has just ap-
plied for a $500 million loan from
the EEC indicates a dire shortage
of financial resources.
No similar requests have been
made by Iran. Iraq's population
of 13.5 million is only a third of
Iran's and traditionally used to a
higher standard of living. Thus
cutbacks and food shortages are
more acutely felt. If Khomeini
maintains the political and mili-
tary pressure it can only work in
the long run in his favor.
For this reason Tehran has
rejected any attempts at con-
ciliation. The official Iranian de-
mands include payment by Iraq
of $150 billion as war reparations.
This has little chance of being
i met even if Saddam expressed
{ willingness to meet it.
TO THE Saudis and the Gulf
States the threat from Iran is of
greater immediate concern than
any other Middle East problem.
Besides cultivating the exiled
Iraqi Shiite leader
Hojatoleslam Mohammed Baqir
Hakin who is already being
branded as Iraq's "forthcoming
Khomeini" the Ayatollah has
already set his crusading sights
on Bahrain.
He claims that its historic Per-
sian attributes necessitate its in-
corporation in a Greater Iran.
Riyadh fears that the impover-
ished Shiite masses of Qatar,
Kuwait, the UAE and even East-
ern Saudi Arabia may be within
persuasive range of Khomeini's
rhetoric. The aphorism
hysterically chanted by Tehran's
Revolutionary Guards "the
forces of Islam recognize no
borders" is emerging as a
threatening reality.

Franco-Israeli Cultural and Edu-

The talks were unilaterally sus-
pended by France last June. The

poned but gave no date for recon-
