What Lies Ahead For Gen. Sharon
By GIL SEDAN
RUSALEM (JTA)
Iriel Sharon officially
juished the post of De-
Minister, but it is too
to tell whether he will
Ige weaker or stronger
this latest crisis in his
)oyant and fiercely
,-ersial career.
Iging from demonstrations

i of inquiry into the Beirut
! camps massacre recom-
W his resignation or dis-
Sharon's supporters

. Hut public opinion polls
[shown repeatedly that not
ny people are sorry to see
WHEN SHARON first ran for
political office on his own, the
independent Shlom Zion ticket in
the 1977 Knesset elections, his
faction won only two seats. But
that result is no measure of his
political power today which
resides within the governing
Likud coalition.
Sharon's close supporters are
intensely loyal. His press adviser,
Uri Dan, expressed confidence
Sunday that the deDarting
Defense Minister eventually will
achieve the highest office. "Those
who refused to see Arik (Sharon's
nickname) as Chief of Staff, had
to see him become Defense Min-
ister. Those who refused to see
him as Minister of Defense will
have to accept him as Premier,"
Dan said.
But Sharon seems to have a
talent for creating enemies. His
uncompromising language and
his self-righteous defense of the
conduct for which he was con-
demned by the inquiry commis-
sion "They are spilling my
blood," he has proclaimed
repeatedly in recent days have
been deplored by many. He has
succeeded in alienating former
army comrades. Few if any of his
opponents have been converted
to supporters.
AMONG HIS aides and subor-
dinates, few have managed to
work with him for very long.
Some of his closest advisers have
left, disenchanted. But within the
army where the hierarchy is clear
and unequivocal, Sharon still
commands considerable support.
Even his critics conceded that
he is a man of action, an author of
events. The trouble, they say, is
that he does the wrong things.

Mitterrand to Launch
Confab on Anti-Semitism
PARIS (JTA) President Francois Mitterrand will
convene an international conference which will study the
best ways to prevent anti-Semitism, racism and discrimi-
nation in the world.
The President reportedly has asked a small group of
intellectuals to prepare an agenda and draw up a list of
possible delegates to the meeting.
OF Spokesman Kimche Declares
[srael Welcomes Deployment of Lebanese Troops
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
senior Israeli official said
that Israel welcomes the
deployment of the Leba-
nese army in the greater Lebanese army took control of
Beirut area where an Israeli Christian cast Beirut, previously
necessary to combat Palestine
Liberation Organization elements
which have reinfiltrated the
region.
THE ROADBLOCK incident
occured only hours after the
patrol rammed through a
roadblock manned by
Lebanese regulars last
week.
David Kimche, Director
General of the Foreign Ministry,
played down that incident in
remarks during a half-hour
session of the I sra el-Lebanon-
J-J-S. negotiations held in
Netanya. Kimche, who heads the
Israeli negotiating team, said
Israel army patrols in the area
were not aimed against the
Lebanese army but were
polked by the private militia of
the Christian Phalangist party.
An Israel army spokesman
claimed that "the Lebanese army
erected a roadblock near Monte
Verde, east of Beirut, and at-
tempted to prevent an IDF patrol
from passing through." He said
the patrol, commanded by a full
colonel, "burst through the road-
block and continued on its way
eastward. There was no exchange
of fire."
The spokesman stressed that
the IDF had no intention of
discontinuing the patrols in the
area which he described as "a
routine part of the ongoing
security activities in the region."
Observers have expressed
surprise that a "routine" patrol
would be commanded by an
officer of the rank of colonel.
THEY SUGGESTED that the
incident was a "probing action"
by Israel to test the respond of
locally deployed forces. The
confrontation between an Israeli
tank squad, commanded by a Lt.
Col. and an American marine
captain, recently in south Beirut
was part of the same pattern,
they said.
During the brief negotiating
session at Netanya the subject
was raised of the expansion of the
area in south Lebanon controlled
by Israel's principal ally, Maj.
Saad Haddad. The Israeli
delegation stressed that Had-
dad's movements were not in-
tended to exert pressure on the
Lebanese negotiators.
Haddad's Israel-equipped
militia, known as the Christian
Free I^ebanon Forces, now oc-
cupies most of south Lebanon
from the Israel border to the
Litani River. Haddad expressed
surprise over the furors created
by the entry of his forces into
Sidon, Lebanon's fourth largest
city, and other towns in the
region in recent days. "We have
always had a presence in Sidon,"
he said.
HADDAD'S MILITIA staged
a military parade through Sidon
and followed it with a parade
through the town of Nabatiya
where he received a lukewarm
welcome. He also sent his forces
marching through Jib Jinnin
village. Haddad said he plans to
establish a large military base in
Nabativa.

Advised Use of "Death Squads'
How Klaus Barbie Orchestrated Nazi Activities in South America
By CHARLES ALLEN, JR.
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Klaus Barbie (Nazi Party
card No. 4,583,085; SS car
No. 272,284) was picked up
from the U.S. Army's
Counter Intelligence Corps
in 1948 and used by the
Central Intelligence
Agency, which absorbed
the activities of the CIC, as
a "contract agent" for
nearly three decades.
During the same period he
contracted work with the CIA,
Barbie acting at the strategic
direction of a post-World War II
SS underground. Die Sninne (The
Spider) was also a "consul-
tant" to Latin American military
dictatorships enjoying the sup-
port of the United States.
IN THAT capacity, Barbie
advised those repressive regimes
on the use of "death squads"
and other forms of political
terror. Barbie had been directed
to go to Latin America where he
was to organize "forces" and
"spheres of (fascist) influence."
He arrived in Bolivia in May,
1951.
According to ABC-TV News
network, one Robert Wilson, a
self-admitted international jewel
thief, knew Barbie in Bolivia.
Wilson alleged that Barbie
"freely confessed" his war crimes
as well as his involvement with
the CIA. According to Wilson,
Barbie claimed he visited such
American cities as New Orleans,
and San Francisco during the
course of his work with the CIA.
Barbie travelled freely on a
Bolivian diplomatic passport.
The CIA refused comment
In Bolivia, Barbie found a
most accommodating atmos-
phere in which to carry out his
work, for years the Bolivian
economy had been dominated
60 percent by German invest-
ment interests and the large
German colony there. As far back
as the 1920's, officers of the
German General Staff

own sources, quickly organized
"coordinated" activities with the
large Nazi concentrations in Ar-
gentina, Brazil, Chile and Para-
quay where fascist military dic-
tatorships reigned.
In Bolivia, Barbie trained a
secret police force and national
police along the lines of the
gestapo he ran in France during
the Holocaust.
He was granted Bolivian
citizenship in 1957. His name was
linked to several notorious politi-
cal killings in 1964, 1972 and
1976. Barbie enjoyed the full
backing of the government of
Col. Hugo Banzer Suarez which
in the 1970's blocked all attempts
to extradite Barbie for his war
crimes in Europe.
BANZER PROVIDED Barbie
with a uniformed bodyguard, and
promised, in his words, "to
protect Sr. Barbie from arty
attempts to kidnap him from
members of the communistic
French resistance": the Associ-
ated Press reported widely in
1972.
Just before his recent return to
France for his war crimes there,
Bolivian sources told the AP
(January 26, 1982) that the new,
liberal regime in La Paz would
soon bring charges against Bar-
bie "for having organized and
advised a network of mercenaries
and para-military for using them
to silence foes of past military
AJComm. Tries
Solution
NEW YORK The
American Jewish Commit-
tee is seeking to help solve
serious problems of anti-
Semitism facing the Jewish
community of Guadalajara,
Mexico.
Sergio Nudelstejer, director of
AJC's Office for Mexico and Cen-
tral America, has reported that
he has discussed the activities of
extreme right-wing groups that
frequently distribute anti-Semitic
propaganda with Bernardo Weit-
zner, president of the Central
Jewish Committee, the leading
body of Mexican Jewry, located
in Mexico City.
In the past few months, Nudel-
stejer revealed, the Guadalajara
Jewish community has suffered
two serious attacks. The first was
a bomb placed near the syna-
gogue, which was discovered and
deactivated. The second was an
attack on the Jewish cemetery, in
which a number of tombstones
were destroyed.
THE SECOND largest city in
Mexico, Guadalajara has become
the center of groups distributing
vicious anti-Semitic material,
Nudelstejer stated. One of the
journals distributed, called
Replica, is issued by the Federa-
tion Anti-communista Mexicana
(Mexican Anticommunist Feder-
ation), a facist, anti-Jewish group
in contact with similar organiza-
tions worldwide.
regimes.
According to my sources, Bar-
bie participated as an advisor for
the hunt for the Argentinian
revolutionary, Che Guevara,
who, along with Fidel Castro,
was a leader of the Cuban revolu-
tion. Guevara was tracked down
in the mountains of Bolivia and
murdered by the Bolivian
military.
"THE WHOLE operation was
vintage SS." my source told me.
"Bolivian internal security forces
swept peasant villages, interro-
gated and tortured the inhabit-
ants, set up elaborate informer
systems in the towns and cities."
Torture and murder are
nothing new in Latin American
politics, any more so than other
parts of the world. But there were
certain "refinements" which Bar-
bie systematically introduced
along with fellow Nazi war
criminals in Latin America.
"He showed them how to do
the Nacht und Nebel thing," my
source stated.
The Nacht und Nebel Erlass
was the infamous 1941 "Night
and Fog Decree" of Hitler di-
recting that any "persons endan-
gering German security" were to
be seized without any semblance
of due process and "made to dis-
appear into the night and fog"
without a trace. Ultimately/the
gestapo became the major ex-
perts of this terrorist device. In
Latin America, especially in Ar-
gentina, this technique resulted
in thousands of "disappeared
ones."
BARBIE WAS IN constant
communication 'and organized
fascist undertakings with the fol-
lowing wanted war criminals."

the "Butcher of Riga" where he

Fedorenko ordered deporttj
Feodor Fedorenko, the former Nazi guard at the Treblinb
concentration camp, and for some time in recent years ih*
owner-manager of a Fort Lauderdale motel, has lost his appeal
to be deported.
The two-step legal battle to denaturalize and then to deport
Fedorenko began six years ago when the U.S. State Dept. firs
charged that Fedorenko, now 75, lied about his World War II
activities to obtain a visa in 1949 and citizenship in 1970.
The U.S. Supreme Court unheld a ruling depriving Fedorenko
of his citizenship and ordered him deported. This was appeal*
anditiwas this appeal that was denied last week by U.S. Imrrn
gration Judge Gordon Sacks in Buffalo.
Though Fedorenko. who came from the Ukraine, is reported to
have a wife and children still living in Russia, his counsel said
that the man will probably fight to stay in the U.S.
Fedorenko, who lived in Miami Beach before coming to Fort
Lauderdale, is now living in Connecticut.

Israel Army's moral standards upheld
. Commission of Inquiry, established at the
Quest of the Israeli Government last September, in its
ort. had closing remarks which were ignored by
actically all the print and TV news reports of the
Edtngli hy the Commission which included Chairman
itzhak Kahan, president of the Supreme Court; Prof.
jiaron Barak, Justice of the Supreme Court, and Yona
t, major general, reserve.
The closing remarks began with this sentence:
|"iii the witnesses' testimony and in various
cuments, stress is laid on the difference between the
J battle ethics of the Israel Defense Forces and the
[tile ethics of the bloody clashes and combat actions
j the various ethnic groups, militias, and fighting
cesin Lebanon."
IEditorially, The Wall Street Journal had this
Immenl on the Commission's report:
"The report on the Sabra and Chatilla massacres is a
narkable document that could only have been
jduced under a democratic government ruled by the
process of law. No doubt the international cam-
Cign to vilify Israel will make full use of the com-
[ission's findings that Israeli Defense Minister Ariel
haron and high Israeli military officers bear indirect
sponsibility for the slaughter of Palestinian refugees
i Lebanese).
["Hut the point to remember is that only a liberal
fcmocracy would allow an open indeed government-
bpointed inquiry to ferret out the truth, and only a
punlry with Western values such as Israel would try
to make sure such an atrocity never happens again.
"The report clearly fixes direct responsibility for the
massacres on Lebanese Phalangists. It states that
there was no conspiracy or plot' between Israel and the
Phalangists to allow the latter to commit the atrocities.
"What's important to remember in this debate is
that there has been no inquiry into the massacre at
llama. Syria, last year; it's unknown whether the death
toll was closer to 5,000 or 20,000. There was no inquiry
into the massacre of thousands of Palestinians by
Jordan in 1970. There was no Palestinian inquiry into
the massacre of Lebanese Christians in Damur in 1976,
nor was there a Lebanese Moslem inquiry last year
after the assassination of Bashir Gemayel. There has
been no Phalangist inquiry into Chatilla and Sabra; on
the contrary, the Phalangists still deny responsibility."
Additional closing remarks in the Inquiry Com-
mission's report noted:
"In the IDF wars in Lebanon, many civilians were
injured and much loss of life was caused, despite the
effort the IDF and its soldiers made not to harm
civilians. On more than one occasion, this effort caused
IDF soldiers additional casualties."
United Jewish Appeal Musical Rally,
IDF Lt. Danny Tadmore told of his tank brigade's
operations in Lebanon. He told the audience that Israel
dropped thousands of leaflets giving civilians 24-hour
notice that PLO military targets would be hit the next
day. He said: "Never before has an army given its
enemies 24-hour notice of its intentions, alerting the
enemy to be prepared. And this is what caused many of
our own casualties. And those PLO targets had
guerrillas with rockets and machine guns emplaeed on
civilian rooftops, even on top of a hospital."
The Commission's closing remarks continue:
"During the months of the war, IDF soldiers wit-
nessed many sights of killings, destruction, and ruin.
From their reactions to acts of brutality against
civilians, it would appear that despite the terrible
sights and experiences of the war and despite the
soldier's obligation to behave as a soldier, IDF soldiers
did not lose their sensitivity to atrocities that were
perpetrated on non-combatants either out of cruelty or
to give vent to vengeful feelings .
"It seems to us that the IDF should continue to
foster the consciousness of basic moral obligations
which must be kept even in war conditions, without
prejudicing the iDF's combat ability and basic
ethical and human values must be maintained in the
use of arms."
The Commission noted in conclusion that the report
has "importance from the perspective of Israel's moral
fortitude and its functioning as a democratic state that
scrupulously maintain the fundamental principles of
the civilized world."
The Wall Street Journal's conclusion indicates that
the civilized world "should reaffirm our commitment
that liberal democratic values are worth fighting for."

'Butcher'\ Barbie WHL Put All of France on TrialAnd US., Too
In many ways, the return of Klaus
Barbie to France becomes that country's
unique Watergate. The trial of the
infamous Nazi extradited from Latin
America and returned to the source of his
murderous mischief during World War II is
fast shaping up as a French psycho-drama
with profound moral implications far
beyond Barbie himself.
The trial will reach into the very heart of
the French people and tear aside the
ponderous draperies of rationale that, for
40 years, gave a people the sense that they
were the victims of Barbie and others of his
invading Nazi ilk able to do little to resist
their actions.
Except, of course, for the fabled French
Maquis, the underground resistance
movement that, we have been told these 40
years, not only gave fits to the Vichy
Government in the south of France, but
that also fought the Nazis in "occupied"
France as an equal partner with the United
States and Great Britain in the war against
Hitler Germany.
The trial, many French fear, will tell a
different story. What may well emerge is an
undertow of native French anti-Semitism
that Jews, at least, have long since (and
long before) recognized as a fact of the
reality of French existence. An anti-
Semitism that helped Barbie and his ilk
more than hindered them.
And what may also emerge is that the
forces of the Maquis were far less extensive
in number or exploit than the mythology
suggests that has surrounded the French
resistance movement almost from the
moment that the Maginot Line, another
illusion of French manufacture, collapsed in
one fell swoop.
This, then, is what Barbies battery of
lawyers will be telling France when he
finally goes to trial: there were more
Frenchmen for the "Butcher of Lyons"
than against him.
Our Misdemeanors
But if France can be expected to take its
lumps in the Barbie trial, so too will the
United States. It was Serge Klarsfeld. the
French lawyer with his wife, Beate.
as a Nazi-fighter, who as early as in 1972
uncovered the whereabouts of Barbie in
Latin America. And it was Klarsfeld who,
the other week, finally undraped the ugly
tale of America's complicity in secretly
getting Barbie out of Europe in the 1950's
to freedom.
Indeed, it was Klarsfeld who told the
equally ugly story that, for at least five
years after World War II, Barbie worked as
a paid employee of the Central Intelligence
Agency.
And, this week, it was Klarsfeld who
revealed that the United States knew of
Barbie's whereabouts in Latin America all
along. And never did a thing to extradite
him.
In this country, Americans will have
their own moral dilemma to face as a nation
so far as Klaus Barbie is concerned.
Weinberger's Obsession
Now that the confrontation has died
down between some Israeli tanks and
Charles Johnson, a U.S. Marine stationed
in Beirut, it is high time that the American

    Jewish community gathered its courage to
    say what it thinks.
    And that is that the villain in the whole
    affair was Secretary of Defense Caspar
    Weinberger.
    Many unreasonable things have been
    said about Israel on Capitol Hill during the
    past few years well preceding the
    tensions arising out of the attempt
    honestly to implement the conditions of the
    Camp David accord of 1979.
    But most of those who have said them,
    dupes though in some cases they may be,
    have at least had the courage of their
    convictions to express regrets at what they
    honestly believed to be an about-face in
    Israel's moral rectitude and documented
    commitments.
    Not so with Secretary Weinberger. There
    is literally not a thing that Israel can do or
    say that will meet with his approval. From
    the moment he signed an Agreement of
    Understanding that would have made
    Israel a more obvious partner with the
    United States in the defense of the Middle
    East against Soviet incursion, Secretary
    Weinberger chafed at the bit to have the
    agreement undone.
    His opportunity came within 48 hours,
    and the agreement has since been
    consigned to the trash heap of Reagan
    Administration business.
    It is Weinberger who has downgraded
    Israel's strategic importance to the United
    States in the face of the obvious Middle
    East realities to the contrary. It is
    Weinberger who developed the insidious
    concept that Uiere js no relatiQnahip
    between the government of Prime Minister
    Begin and the people of Israel a
    masterstroke of diplomacy designed not
    only to disenfranchise Prime Minister
    Begin, and therefore Israel as an American
    ally, but to suggest that until Begin goes,
    Israel is nothing but a detriment to peace in
    the Middle East.
    Though Weinberger signed the
    Agreement of Understanding with then-
    Secretary of Defense Ariel Sharon, it was
    Weinberger who set Capitol Hill buzzing
    with the underground commitment to oust
    Sharon (and, of course, Begin) before
    returning Israel to his "good graces."
    The Reagan Administration may by now
    know that the Weinberger masterplan for
    Israel, its diminution and return to the pre-
    1967 borders, will not wash. Perhaps
    Sharon is gone as Defense Minister, but he
    is not really gone. And, were Mr. Begin to
    call for new elections, he would not only not
    lose, but win by a wider margin of power
    than he holds at this moment.
    Still, Secretary Weinberger sits astride
    Capitol Hill like a recalcitrant shadow, less
    than subtly injecting his venom against
    Israel to everyone over whom the shadow
    lies like a deathly pall. Though the truth ot
    the John Wayne acting job of Marine
    Johnson is now widely known, that he
    confronted the tanks within Israeli
    jurisdiction in Beirut, neither Weinberger
    nor the Reagan Administration publicly
    admits to their error, and Weinberger in
    fact pursues his determination to cite
    Johnson for heroism. Perhaps the person
    who must go is closer to hand than even
    Secretary Weinberger thinks.

    the views of the government of
    Israel to various audiences.
    This brunch will mark the
    highlight of the Century Village
    Campaign.
    After Ouster
    What Lies Ahead For Former Minister
    Continued from Page 1
    tenure as Defense Minister were
    the war in Lebanon and his unre-
    lenting campaign of massive
    Jewish settlements in the oc-
    cupied territories.
    Sharon is a career soldier. At
    the age of 20, in Israel's War of
    Independence, he was wounded
    in the battle for Latrun. While he
    was hospitalized, he abandoned
    the idea of becoming a farmer and
    was determined to return to the
    battlefield.
    RIGHT NOW, he is deter-
    mined to remain in the Cabinet,
    although a majority of his fellow
    ministers it has been reported
    would like to see him out.
    Sharon is honestly convinced
    that he has been wronged by the
    inquiry commission and intends
    to fight its findings. He disagreed
    vehemently with its conclusions
    that Israel was indirectly
    responsible for the massacre and
    that he was personally culpable
    for not making an effort to avoid
    it.
    Until now, Sharon has won all
    of his personal battles. He has
    known a few setbacks but was
    always triumphant in the end.
    One of the few heroes to emerge
    from the Yom Kippur War, he
    expected to be appointed Chief of
    Staff. When that post was denied
    him, he entered the political
    arena.
    HE WAS the prime mover be-
    hind the alliance between the
    Liberal Party and Herut which
    produced first the Gahal faction
    and later Likud. He joined
    Premier Menachem Begin s first
    government as Minister of Agri-
    culture. But he soon became a
    key member of the coalition,
    getting himself appointed chair-
    man of the Ministerial Settle-
    ment Committee from which he
    pushed for massive Jewish set-
    tlement in the territories.
    When Defense Minister Ezer
    Weizman resigned in 1981, Be-
    gin 's reluctance to name Sharon
    his successor was a bitter pill.
    But the general swallowed it
    quietly.
    After Begins reelection in
    June, 1981, with a reduced Knes-
    set margin, Sharon presented
    him with a virtual ultimatum and
    was named Minister of Defense.
    THE WAR in Lebanon last
    summer was the result of his own
    long preparation. He was deter-
    mined from the outset not only to
    destroy the Palestine Liberation
    Organization but to change the
    political infrastructure of Leba-
    non.
    During the war, he was ac-
    cused of presenting the Cabinet
    with faits accomplis, but so far as
    is known, none of his fellow
    ministers rebelled. Nevertheless,
    as the Israel army pushed deeper
    into Lebanon, dissatisfaction
    within the government and in the
    army grew.
    When Sharon ordered the siege
    of west Beirut round-the-clock
    heavy bombardment of the city
    from land, sea and air one
    young officer, Col. Eli Geva,
    publicly expressed the anger and
    misgivings felt by some members
    of the officers corps and within
    the ranks. Geva asked to be
    relieved of his divisional com-
    Not since David and Goliath has
    something so tiny made it so big.
    *
    It's Tetley's tiny little tea leaves. They've been making it big in
    Jewish homes for years. Tetley knows that just as tiny lamb
    chops and tiny peas are the most flavorful, the same is true for
    tea leaves. That's why for rich, refreshing tea, Tetley bags
    are packed with tiny little tea leaves. Because tiny is tastier!

    Super Sunday
    Committee Growing
    Sandy Goldstein, Super
    Sunday Cabinet Member, has
    appointed Byron Turnoff and
    Robin Eisenberg to the Super
    Sunday Committee.
    Their responsibility will be to
    assist Mrs. Goldstein in the clas-
    sifying of telephone calls pre-
    mand which had been slated to
    enter the city. He was relieved
    and subsequently discharged
    from the army.
    AFTER THE massacres in the
    Shatila and Sabra refugee camps,
    a number of senior officers
    threatened to follow Geva's
    example unless an investigation
    was ordered. Both Sharon and
    Begin bitterly opposed a judicial
    inquiry but backed down under
    severe public pressure, and the
    commission was appointed.
    The commission's report forced
    his resignation as Defense
    Minister.
    vious to Super Sunday and wrap-
    up following Super Sunday.
    With the growth of Super
    Sunday's committees, the project
    is involving more of the ever-
    growing South County's Jewish
    population.
    Letter to the Editor
    EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
    Maybe I'm a minority of one,
    but I don't think support of Jew-
    ish Federation and UJA should
    depend on whether one agrees
    with one or another policy of Is-
    raeli government or whether one
    likes Begin and Sharon. Genuine
    concern for well-being of Israel
    and its people, not merely its
    existence, and the welfare of Jew-
    ish community seem good
    enough reasons in themselves.
    What bothers me is unconcealed
    partisanship and outright em-
    brace of present Israeli leadership
    by some campaign spokesmen.
    That individuals have every right
    to their private opinions is un-
    questioned, but to couple na-
    tional appeals with partisan poli-
    tics seems divisive and counter-
    productive. People of Israel have
    eloquently demonstrated their
    unbridled freedom and acquitted
    themselves admirably. Tzedaka
    commands us to share our
    bounty with them and those in
    need.

    Now It's OfficialSharansky Hunger Strike Is Over
    By JTA Report
    NEW YORK Imprisoned
    Soviet Jewish activist Anatoly
    Sharansky, currently completing
    the fifth year of a 13-year sen-
    tence at the notorious Chistipol
    Prison, has ended his nearly five-
    month hunger strike to protest
    the denial of mail and visits from
    members of his family, privileges
    allowed to other prisoners, the
    Student Struggle for Soviet
    Jewrv and the Union of Councils
    of Soviet Jews confirmed here.
    According to the SSSJ and the
    UCSJ, this information was re-
    vealed in a letter Sharansky
    wrote dated Feb. 7 and received
    by his mother, Ida Milgrom, in
    Moscow, that he had resumed
    eating on Jan. 14. Since then, the
    letter said, he has been receiving
    food with vitamins and slowly re-
    gaining some weight. But
    Sharansky wrote that he con-
    tinues to suffer from severe heart
    pains and is unable to participate
    in the half hour of daily exercise
    in the prison courtyard, which is
    the only exercise the inmates re-
    ceive, the Soviet Jewish groups
    reported.
    Sharansky ended his hunger
    strike, which he began on Sept.
    27, after he received two heavily
    censored notes from his mother
    who in January tried in vain to
    see personally. According to pub-
    lished reports, Mrs. Milgrom was
    denied access to her son because
    Sharansky was still on a hunger
    strike.
    Viet 'Boat People'
    Mark'Year of Pig'
    TEL AVIV The "Year of
    the Pig" was celebrated in Israel
    this week. It was marked by the
    330-member Vietnamese com-
    munity the "boat people"
    who fled the Communist regime
    in Vietnam and were granted
    refuge by Israel in 1977 after
    being denied haven by their"
    neighbors in southeast Asia.
    The Vietnamese held a party at
    the community center in Azor, a
    town near Tel Aviv where they
    live. They greeted their new year
    with traditional dancers in their
    natives costumes and a feast of
    Vietnamese dishes, some of
    which have acquired a Middle
    Eastern flavor. Of the 450 Viet-
    namese who landed in Israel six
    years ago, about 120 have left for
    other countries. Those who re-
    main have found employment
    chiefly in the restaurant and
    hotel trades.
    Tax Law to Apply
    To Emigres-Rosen
    TEL AVIV Rumanian Chief
    Rabbi Moses Rosen, making a re-
    versal from an earlier statement,
    asserted here that the new
    Rumanian law requiring all emi-
    grants to reimburse the govern-
    ment for the free secondary and
    higher education they had re-
    ceived, would in fact be applied to
    those Jews seeking to make aliya.
    "Just as I announced then
    (last November) the positive ap-
    proach of the authorities in
    Bucharest, I feel obliged to report
    ... on the change that has taken
    place in Rumania and that the
    new law also applies to Jews,"
    Rosen told reporters.
    The publication of the new
    directive last November caused
    widespread consternation among
    Jews around the world. The Rea-
    gan Administration has re-
    peatedly warned that the educa-
    tion tax could affect Most
    Favored Nation Trade status to
    Rumania on the grounds that the
    new law violates the terms of the
    Jackson Vanik Amendment to
    the Foreign Trade Act which
    links trade with Communist bloc
    nations to their emigration poli-
    cies.
    The criticism and response
    were expressed to more than 400
    delegates from 11 national and
    111 community organizations as-
    sembled at the four-day annual
    plenum of the National Jewish
    Community Relations Advisory
    Council (NJCR AC).
    Fairbanks maintained that the
    Reagan plan had "challenged the
    parties to the conflict to meet at
    the negotiating table" and that
    "Arab leaders are now talking
    about how to make peace with Is-
    rael not whether."
    Begin Beats Back
    Non-Confidence Moves
    JERUSALEM Premier
    Menachem Begin's coalition de-
    feated three non-confidence mo-
    tions in the Knesset. The vote
    was 64-56 against the motions
    submitted separately by the
    Labor Alignment, Shinui and the
    Hadash (Communist) Party de-
    manding that the government re-
    sign because of the findings of
    the commission of inquiry into
    the Beirut refugee camps rats-
    sacre.
    The heated debate, which pre-
    ceded the voting, was one of the
    rare occasions when all 120 Knes-
    set members were present and in
    their seats. Former Premier Yitz-
    hak Rabin led off for the opposi-
    tion Labor Party. He argued that
    the government should resign be-
    cause it had ministerial responsi-
    bility for the grave faults dis-
    closed
    port.
    by the commission's re-
    Envoy Denies Reagan
    Undercuts Camp David
    CLEVELAND Ambassador
    Richard Fairbanks, the Adminis-
    tration's special negotiator for
    the Middle East peace process,
    denied that President Reagan is
    "seeking to impose a peace or
    dictate a settlement." He spoke
    in response to charges made by a
    Notre Dame University Mideast
    expert. Prof. Alan Dowty, that
    Reagan's Middle East initiative
    of last Sept. 1 was "leap-frog-
    ging" the Camp David peace
    process.
    Pines of Defray North
    Goes Over The Top
    At the conclusion of their
    "Israeli Breakfast," held on
    Sunday. February 13, Pines of
    Delray North residents had ex-
    ceeded last year's contributions
    by 43 percent and are well on
    their way to achieving this year's
    goal.
    Chairmen Charles and Lillian
    Ostrow. Co-chairmen Benno and
    Lillian VVetzstein and their hard-
    working committee created a
    lovely breakfast in the North
    Club House. Nearly 200 people
    attended the event. The King's
    Point Glee Club, led by Iz Siegel.
    entertained the group with
    beautiful music and Kabbi Sam
    Silver of Temple Sinai was guest
    speaker.
    The Ostrows and Wetzsteins
    will continue with their commit-
    tee to bring the 1963 Pines of
    Delray North's Campaign to a
    rousing conclusion.

    CRC Chairman
    Communicates With State Dep't On Soviet Jews
    By GEM ROSENBERG
    The Community Relations
    Council of the South County
    Jewish Federation is the co-
    ordinating body for social action
    in this community. It represents
    a unified Jewish voice to the rest
    of the nation and the world. In
    the past, the CRC has been
    viewed as the body organizing
    various holiday and commemora-
    tive events, as well as responding
    to urgent needs in Israel.
    However, the CRC handles a
    multitude of other important
    issues affecting Jews in South
    County, throughout the United
    States, and internationally. The
    following letter was sent to
    Marianne Bobick, Chairman of
    the CRC from the United States
    State Department in response to
    Jewish Family and
    Children's Service Programs
    Jewish Family & Children's
    Service of Boca Raton has been
    developing a program of Jewish
    Family Life Education under the
    direction of Dena Harash, MSW.
    The aim of JFLE is to provide
    lectures, workshops and groups
    as a means of educating and pro-
    viding support for people in our
    community. Jewish Family Serv-
    ice has a staff of professionals
    who are involved in the JFLE
    program.
    In the past few months, pro-
    grams have been presented at the
    llillcl Organization at Florida
    Atlantic University, Women's
    American ORT, Brandeis
    Women, Beth El Single Parents
    Support Group, and the South
    County Kosher Meals Program.
    Jewish Family Service is coor-
    dinating a community-wide pro-
    gram on Cults, in conjunction
    with the Community Relations
    Council of South County Jewish
    Federation, on Sunday, March 6
    at 7:30 p.m. at B'nai Torah Con-
    gregation in Boca Katon. It will
    feature ex-Moonie Helen Fried-
    man who is presently coordinator
    of the Task Force on Cults of the
    Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
    tion.
    In March, Jewish Family
    Service is offering a 10 week
    workshop on Systematic Train-
    ing for Effective Parenting
    (STEP) under the leadership of
    Nancy A. Feldman, MSW.
    In response to the changing
    times and the effects social
    changes have had on family rela-
    tionships, today's parents have
    an increasing interest in finding
    more effective ways of relating to
    their children. This interest has
    led to the development of STEP,
    a realistic and sensible approach
    to parent-child relationships.
    STEP is open to the community-
    Interested parents should con-

    Dear Ms. Bobick:
    . I am writing in response to
    your letter of December 21 to the
    President concerning the case of
    Feliks Kochubievskiy, who was
    recently sentenced to imprison-
    ment in a Soviet labor camp.
    The Department of State is
    familiar with Mr. Kochu-
    bievskiy's unfortunate situation.
    He, his wife and mother-in-law
    have been attempting to
    emigrate from the Soviet Union
    to Israel since 1978. He was
    reportedly arrested in September
    1982 for his continuing efforts to
    found a USSR-Israel Friendship
    We sll round the Seder table each year, and celebrate The Exodus
    through traditions passed down to us over thousands of years. These
    traditions have become so much a part of our heritage they are
    Inscribed In the Haggadah for all the world to see: the malzoh. the
    "MaNtehtanah. the Aphikoman. the recitation of the plagues, the
    chant of Dayenu. and on and on through the night, closing with
    Chad Gadya'.'
    At each Seder, however, there are other kinds of traditions...
    IxadiUons which are just as strong. |ust as cherished. They arc our
    personal family traditions. I nwritten and unsung, they are as much a
    part of our Seders as the hard-boiled eggs and bitter herbs. And
    among these, one of the most popular traditions Is the wine that is
    used throughout the Seder evening That is Manischewilz. of course
    In millions of homes, it just wouldn t be Passover without a bottle of
    Manlschewilz Kosher Wine. It Is a wine that spans the generations
    and. somehow, symbolizes the continuity of the family Seder. Faces
    may change, we grow older, some-
    times there is a new youngster
    to ask the "MaNlshlanah ... but
    always there is the Manischewltz.
    It holds a traditional and hon-
    ored place at our Seder table.

    Society in Novosibirsk, USSR,
    an organization which would
    parallel the already long-
    established Israel-USSR Friend-
    ship Society in Israel. As you
    pointed out, in December he was
    tried and convicted of
    "dissemination of fabrications
    slandering the Soviet state and
    social system" and was sen-
    tenced to two-and-one-half years'
    confinement in labor camps.
    The United States Govern-
    ment has consistently expressed
    its concern to the Soviet Govern-
    ment over the obstructions which
    are encountered by those seeking
    emigration from the USSR.
    Denial of such basic rights as
    freedom of movement and family
    reunification are matters of
    international significance, which
    we have raised with the Soviets
    both in bilateral talks and in
    multilateral fora such as the
    CSCE Review Conference at
    Madrid. We have similarly taken
    every appropriate opportunity to
    call for an end to Soviet im-
    prisonment of those whom the
    regime regards as political dissi-
    dents. We have stressed the
    importance of these basic human
    rights issues in the context of
    overall Soviet-American
    relations.
    Unfortunately, the Soviet
    Government has not been
    responsive to our efforts, nor to
    those of other concerned Western
    governments and independent
    human rights organizations.
    Despite their nominal assent to a
    number of international
    covenants affirming fundamental
    rights and freedoms, the Soviets
    persist in maintaining that in-
    carceration of "criminals" on
    essentially political grounds is an
    exclusively internal policy
    matter. They likewise contend
    that emigration is strictly a
    domestic issue, and they reject
    any U.S. attempts to present
    views on behalf of those, like Mr.
    Kochubievskiy, who seek to
    emigrate to a third country such
    as Israel. While we condemn such
    arbitrary and inhumane
    behavior, and have often made
    this known to Soviet officials, we
    lack the ability to alleviate
    prisoners' circumstances in any
    direct fashion, such as securing
    the release of specific individuals.
    We appreciate your interest in
    Mr. Kochubievskiy. The Depart-
    ment of State will continue to
    follow his situation closely and
    will attempt to assist him in
    every appropriate way. We are
    determined to persist in our
    efforts in support of all those who
    are unjustly imprisoned in, or
    denied the right to emigrate
    from, the USSR.

    Sunny Costa Rica
    Where 3,000 Jews Appear To Be Thriving Today
    By KIM MULLER-THYM
    Copyright Bain more Jewish Times
    Reprint by Special Arrangement
    As our minibus charges
    through crowded streets of San
    Jose, Costa Rica's capital, our
    driver honks at slowpoke vehicles
    and pedestrians who line the
    streets waiting for public trans-
    portation. Dusk is descending on
    the city. People in our little bus
    are in a panic. It's Friday, and we
    are too late to return to the hotel
    to change into more appropriate
    clothing and make it back in time
    for Shabat services.
    "We can't possibly go to
    services like this. This is a shul
    where men and women sit
    separately to wear pants
    would be an insult."
    "But we have no time. And
    they are expecting us. What an
    insult that would be, if we didn't
    show."
    BACK AND forth. The ex-
    change heats up. Then several
    blocks ahead, the brilliant
    stained glass Star of David
    looms, welcoming Jews to ser-
    vice. The decision is made: we
    park the bus at the entrance and
    send in our best dressed emissary
    to explain the situation. A syna-
    gogue elder soon returns and
    graciously invites us to join serv-
    ices.
    In we traipse, selfconsciously.
    Inside the somewhat plain, two-
    story, stucco building, we are
    surprised to find a warm, wooden
    interior, with a lovely, hand
    carved bima at its center, a
    shirting silver candelabra at each
    of its corners.
    From upstairs we watch the
    congregation pour in, filling all
    the seats. About 60 or 70 men sit
    towards the front of the sanc-
    tuary, most wearing suits, a few
    with teleisim, and all with yar-
    mulkes. More than 200 teen-agers
    sit in the central portion, the
    boys on one side and the girl on
    the other.
    THEY ARE dressed casually
    in designer jeans and polo shirts,
    automatically putting us more at
    ease about our own apparel. We
    are told this is a special teenage
    service that takes place every
    other Friday evening, and we are
    invited downstairs to feel more a
    part of the family atmosphere.
    Leading the services is a young
    man of Bar Mitzvah age who
    chants all the prayers in Hebrew.
    The congregation follows the
    KIM MULLER-THYM herewith reports on
    a familiarization tour she has just taken to
    Costa Rica. Why? Because, she says,
    Israel and Costa Rica are fast becoming
    friends. It was Costa Rica President Luis
    Alberto Monge who decided to move his
    government's embassy back from Tel
    Aviv to Jerusalem Then, Israel gave
    Costa Rica $7 million and a promise to
    encourage American Jews to visit there.
    This, says Muller-Thym, is a first step
    toward introducing Americans to Israel's
    sunny new friend.
    services closely. The young peo-
    ple sing out exuberantly, filling
    the large space with their joy.
    Their enthusiasm is due in
    large part to an Israeli teacher,
    who seems to be orchestrating
    the services from the boys'
    section. He is one of the most
    popular instructors at Weizman
    Institute, where 98 percent of the
    Jewish children study through
    twelfth grade. Apparently he
    exudes such love of Judaism that
    the students in return love him
    and Judaism.
    THE CONGREGATION has
    no rabbi at present. "We are a
    synagogue of 2,000 rabbis,"
    quipped one member. About 60
    members, most of them under 20,
    are qualified to lead services. The
    community performs no divorces
    and no conversions (these are
    said to be done in Israel, accord-
    ing to Orthodox law) and the
    same elderly spiritual leader per-
    forms all the marriages.
    However, the congregation does
    boast a shochet and a mikvah.
    Mxer services, we are invited
    for an Oneg Shabat. Two long
    tables are set up with white table
    cloths and plates of homemade
    cakes and cookies and bottles of
    fruit juice and Manischewitz
    wine. No one touches a thing
    until the blessing is complete.
    Then hundreds of little hands
    scramble for the counter. What
    they can't consume, the children
    entrust to amused parents,
    standing. along the wall.
    Laughter and conversation
    abound.
    THIS IS the heart of Costa
    Rica's Jewish community,
    consisting of 3,000 people, or 400
    families. It is a group that thrives
    economically and politically and.
    at the same time, is fiercely de-
    termined to maintain its own reli-
    gious traditions and social
    cohesiveness.
    Both younger and older gener-
    ations are very close-knit. As a
    teenager at the Oneg Shabat re-

    you're doing. There are few
    secrets." She speaks near perfect
    English with an American ac-
    cent, thanks to several vacations
    in the States.
    One problem with such a close
    network of friends, she says, is
    that later they have little interest
    in dating one another. Many go
    out of the country to South
    America, Panama and Israel to
    find mates. Panama, with a large
    Jewish community, is trying
    hard to unite its youth, while
    Jews in other Central American
    countries have become almost
    totally assimiliated.
    DESPITE THIS inconven-
    ience of finding mates elsewhere,
    the community has little trouble
    with intermarriage maybe one
    a year at most, and even those
    couples tend to raise their off-
    spring as Jews.
    Only about ten percent of the
    community keep kosher, mostly
    young couples. Not everyone
    goes to synagogues. Yet Jewish
    values are instilled deeply enough
    for intermarriage and assimila-
    tion not to be major problems
    at least not yet. The community,
    encircled socially and
    geographically in one area of San
    Jose, is admittedly tight and
    closed
    Ninety-nine percent of Costa
    Rica's Jews are Ashkenazim. The
    Sephardim and Dutch Jews who
    came at the turn of the century
    from Aruba, Curacao and Spain
    i.avc Iwcome so assimilated that
    th-y no longer see themselves as
    lows In the 1920s, about 30 to 40
    Jews came from Poland, most of
    them from the two small towns of
    Jelskov and Kosnitz, while a few
    came from Warsaw and Turkey.
    THEY HAD no idea where
    Costa Rica was; they simply
    ended up there on their journeys
    west because it was easy to enter
    without a visa and because it was
    cheap to live. They came not
    speaking a word of Spanish and
    with no money but they knew
    each other and supported each
    other. Many became peddlers and
    established the credit system in
    Costa Rica. Once established,
    they sent for their families.
    They settled in San Jose,
    where they made a cemetery and
    set up kashrut facilities; they
    export kosher beef. In 1936 they
    established -the Zionist Israel
    Center (Centra Israelita Sicuistal
    which acts essentially as a
    national Jewish federation,
    coordinating all social services,
    fundraising and education for the
    community.
    The third wave of Jewish
    immigrants came in 1946 and
    1947. These World War II
    survivors swelled the Jewish
    community. Today they consti-
    tute the majority. The commu-
    nity can now boast many active
    groups.
    THEY INCLUDE the Zionist
    Israel Center, which is now affi-
    liated with the Federation of
    Central American Jewish com-
    munities and the World Jewish
    Congress; a central Zionist B'nai
    B'rith lodge and unit, a Zionist
    youth movement (Hancar Haz-
    ioni) and a women's welfare orga-
    nization (Sociedad de Damas Is-
    raelites de Beneficencia).
    A Jewish periodical in Spanish,
    Baderej, established with the
    help of the Federation of Central
    American Jewish Communities,
    was published and circulated for
    several years; it may be regener-
    ated in the near future.
    The Jewish community has
    flourished in Costa Rica's en-
    lightened society, which knows
    little discrimination. "I didn't
    even know what discrimination
    was until I went to the States,"
    said Manuel Rodriguez, who
    went to military school in FW
    ida.
    A Catholic, he fcrew up in .
    Jewish neighborhood. where
    most of his friends are Jews
    "only here we don't call them
    Jews. We call them Polish, iust
    as we identify all people by their
    place of origin." When the Poluh
    Pope was elected, Costa RictM
    were really confused.
    MANUEL RODRIGUEZ, ,
    self-employed businessman u&A
    former amateur tennis champion
    of Costa Rica, says he fully sup.
    ports his country's recently
    intensified friendship with Israel
    It's a bond "that makes sense
    because we have so much in
    common," he says, "We art
    both little, democratic countries
    caught in the middle of much
    bigger, stronger countries. The
    difference is that Israel defends
    herself and we don't. That's why
    we need friends like Israel and
    the United States."
    Israel has also promised to
    consider buying coffee, depend-
    ing on the taste, price and cost of
    shipping. Israel is also increasing
    its number of scholarships for
    Costa Ricans to study in Israel.
    Costa Rica is the only western-
    style parliamentary democracy in
    Latin America; if for no other
    reason, Turgeman, implies, it
    deserves the friendship and
    support of Israeli and American
    Jews.
    As Zelda Bloom, a member of
    our delegation and director ol
    B'nai B'rith's national tour
    Department, put it. "Jewish
    organizations have often stopped
    tours to countries unfriendly tt
    Israel. That's all the more reasor

    From Denial to Fulfillment
    By GINNI WALSH
    United Jewish Appeal
    Special Correspondent
    It was the eighth time Gila
    waited expectantly in a hospital
    bed after giving birth. The
    results of the other deliveries
    were seven healthy children. But
    this time as Gila waited to hold
    her infant, the medical team was
    discussing how to break the
    news.
    The doctors and nurses were
    struggling with some painful
    questions: How do you tell a
    mother that she has just brought
    a genetically defective child into
    the world? How do you deal with
    ; the shock, the despair, the cry of
    "Why me? Why did this happen
    to me?"'
    Shulamit Shalvit. a social
    worker from the Jerusalem
    Developmental Child and Family
    Center, was on hand to cope with
    all of the first agonizing reac-
    tions: "Gila knew immediately
    that something was wrong. But
    the father wanted to wait a few
    days before putting a name on
    what the problem was."
    To Gila and her husband, the
    name of the problem Downe's
    Syndrome did not mean much
    at first. Within a few days, they
    were denying that this label could
    possibly mean their child would
    be mentally and physically
    retarded permanently.
    "Denying is normal," says
    Shalvit. "The parents are suf-
    fering terribly at a time like this.
    It is no time to make decisions. A
    decision made about the child
    during those first days is not
    pure. I know parents who placed
    their children in institutions
    immediately, and they have lived
    to regret it."'
    The center does all it can to
    encourage parents to keep their
    handicapped children at home. It
    offers parental counseling, exten-
    sive therapies for the children,
    and kindergartens designed to
    meet the special needs with a
    variety of different handicaps.
    Most importantly, it offers moral
    support and factual information
    to guide parents.
    Anne Bilowet. one of the
    center's kindergarten teachers, is
    encouraging: advancement that
    can be made with these children
    today is incredible. "We've
    learned, for example, what a
    Downe's Syndrome child can
    achieve when we work with him
    or her from birth."
    With a loving glance towards
    the two- and three-year-old tod-
    'dlers, she concludes quietly and
    proudly: "With these children,
    we're setting the foundation. I'm
    sharing in the most important
    time of their lives."
    Mothers like Gila have to be
    taught exactly how important
    these beginning years are. Gila,
    after those first days of pain and
    denial, found healing and af-
    firmation in that learning
    process.
    "We taught her that her new-
    l>orn would move at a different
    tempo," says Shavit. "That there
    are rules for how the child should
    w fed and held, special techni-
    ')u Above all, that there are rewards
    - very different from the satis-
    fy ;!!<>n with a so-called normal
    fluid but very special."
    The center, a pioneering
    launched in 1967 by the
    American Jewish Joint Distri-
    bution Committee with funds
    from I .1A-community cam-
    paigns, now reached out into the
    towns around Jerusalem.
    Development towns like Beit
    bhemesh. where damaged chil-
    dren were traditionally just kept
    *'th their families, with no
    stimulation and no chance for
    advancement. Some, whoae
    retardation might have been
    m'nimal. ended up severely
    retarded.
    For 94 special children in Beit
    Shemesh today, since UJA-Pro-
    ject Renewal funds brought the
    Jerusalem center's services into
    the town, the picture is brightly
    changed. They are no longer

    every small new motor skill
    learned, is a source of joy and

    According to Director Asher
    Ornoy, the center's approach is
    outside of Israel, he states, "are
    only diagnostic. The fact that we
    diagnose and treat means that
    we're really fulfilling the main
    goal of medicine."
    Counseling pregnant women
    against irrational fear of birth
    abnormalities is a key function at
    the center. "My main role is to
    calm down anxiety and reduce
    the number of unnecessary
    pregnancy terminations," says
    Ornoy.
    The philosophy is clear: life is
    precious, should be wanted

    grow.
    Demand for the center's
    services is beginning to outstrip
    its capacity, but plans for ex-
    pansion have been suspended.
    Funded from the Ministry of
    Health, which has had respon-
    sibility for the Jerusalem facility
    and 12 similar programs in Israel
    since 1978, has been cut back in
    the wake of Operation Peace for
    Galilee. Future growth now
    hinges on the success of the
    United Jewish Appeal Israel
    Special Fund.
    For Gila, three years after the
    birth of her Downe's Syndrome
    baby, the hurt and anxiety are
    past: the promised rewards
    mount with each sign of slow,
    new progress in her special eighth
    child. The anxiety has now
    shifted to the center's devoted
    staff, who wait and wonder if
    they will be able to offer that life
    gift to all the other mothers and
    afflicted children who will need
    their unique and loving care.
    Barbie's Activities in Holland
    Will Be Added to French Charges
    By HENRIETTE BOAS
    AMSTERDAM -
    (JTA) The activities of
    Klaus Barbie in Holland,
    including the deportation of
    1300 Jewish youths to their
    deaths at the Mauthausen
    concentration camp, will be
    added to the charges
    against him when the
    former Gestapo chief in
    Lyon goes on trial in that
    French city for "crimes
    against humanity."
    Paul Brilman. a Dutch public
    prosecutor who specializes in the
    cases of Nazi war criminals, will
    assist the French prosecuting at-
    torneys. He will provide details of
    Burble's crimes during the eight
    months in 1941 when he worked
    for the gestapo in Nazi-occupied
    Holland. Barbie.who headed the
    Gestapo in Lyon from 1942-44,
    has been charged with the depor-
    tations of thousands of French
    Jews and the torture and murder
    of members of the French resis-
    tance, including their leader,
    Jean Moulin.
    BARBIE WAS expelled from
    Bolivia, a country where he found
    haven after World War II, and
    was turned over to French
    authorities last weekend. He is
    presently imprisoned in Lyon.
    The Netherlands State Institute
    for Documentation on World War
    II has evidence that Barbie was
    responsible for the deportation of
    Jews trom Holland in June, 1941,
    before the deportations of Dutch
    Jews began en masse.
    The youths involved included
    200 German Jewish refugees who
    had been confined to the Jewish
    "working village" set up at
    Wieringermeer, north of Amster-
    dam. They were evacuated and
    billeted with Dutch Jewish
    families in a residential area of
    Amsterdam.
    According to the documents,
    Barbie obtained the addresses of
    t hose families from the local Jew-
    ish Council which was led to be-
    lieve that the youths were to be
    returned to the "work village."
    ALL OF THE homes were
    raided. The Nazis seized not only
    the refugees but the sons of the
    families they were staying with,
    about 300 youths in all. and
    shipped them to Mauthausen.
    None survived.

    Bilirakis Urges Better
    Treatment For Soviet Jews
    WASHINGTON Congres-
    sman Michael Bilirakis (R-
    Tarpon Springs) called on the
    leaders of the Soviet Union to
    comply with international law
    and basic human rights in their
    treatment of Soviet Jewry.
    Bilirakis. one of the first fresh-
    man House members to join the
    Congressional Conference on
    Soviet Jewry, said Soviet restric-
    tions on Jews were violations of
    the basic rights of all people to
    have freedom of choice.
    "It's not a question of
    Republican versus Democrat or
    Conservative versus Liberal. It's
    just a simple case of right versus
    wrong when our fellow human
    beings are not allowed to live
    freely with all of their basic
    human rights." Bilirakis said at a
    reception which called for Soviet
    leaders to permit more
    emigration by Soviet Jews.
    For a brief period, the Soviet
    Union had relaxed its emigration
    policies toward Soviet Jews,
    reaching a peak in 1979 when
    51.320 Jews were allowed to leave
    the country. Since then, Soviet
    altitudes once again have har-
    dened. In 1981. 9,447 Soviet Jews
    were permitted to emigrate and
    in 1982 the number shrank to
    2.692. the lowest point in nearly a
    decade.

    tourism dollars those countries
    friendly to Israel.
    TO REINFORCE this friend
    ship. President Luis Alberto
    Monge moved the Costa Rican
    embassy from Tel Aviv back to
    Jerusalem only two days after
    being elected. (His predecessor
    had moved it to Tel Aviv.)
    President Monge told his cabinet
    they could dispute anything in
    his administration but this. He
    was supported unanimously.
    Monge had been the Costa
    Rican Ambassador to Israel from
    1963 to 1964. As such, he had
    resided in Jerusalem. Also, his
    second wife, Doris Yankelewitz,
    is Jewish and their daugher,
    Lena. 16, has been brought up a
    Jew; all of which doesn't raise an
    eyebrow in egalitarian Costa
    llica.
    Hut there are other reasons,
    more subtle, more hidden, for
    making a "Jewish Connection"
    with this little country.
    ONE REASON, not officially
    espoused, but suggested by Dr.
    Hernie Rubinstein, a guest at the
    presidential reception, is the
    highly flammable political situa-
    tion in Central America.
    What if the political situation
    in Central America gets out of
    hand,*' Dr. Rubinstein worries.
    "What would happen if Nica-
    ragua, breathing down our necks,
    and El Salvador ready to explode
    any day, it is hard to tell what
    will happen to our country. If
    terrorists or revolutionaries ever
    took over, we would be the first
    to get it. We would become what
    do you call it scapegoats.
    "Nicaragua is by far our
    biggest threat. With their politi-
    cal brainwashing, they send
    propaganda over the radio irfto
    northern Costa Rica all the time
    and the peasants listen. Nica-
    ragua gets all its military advice
    and arms, and even its teachers
    and textbooks from Cuba. This
    could have a dangerous influence
    in our country, especially now,
    when the economy is suffering
    We definitely need all the
    triends we can iret."

    talked about because of its
    negative implications comes
    from Harry Wohlstein formerly
    national chairman of the Security
    Department, and today a private
    attorney. "We have to be careful
    as Jews,"' he says.'' We have a lot
    of affluence and a lot of influence
    in the government which could
    easily be resented."
    Wohlstein is wary of having
    too many Jews in office at once.
    Indeed, when he was asked to
    head Security, he declined at
    first, because a fellow Jew had
    already accepted the prominent
    position as health minister.
    "POLITICS ARE a new ex-
    perience for us. We only got our
    first major political appointment
    less than ten years ago," he says,
    adding that since then quite a few
    Jews have served in office as
    finance minister, vice minister of
    finance, coordinator of higher
    education, as well as ministers of
    country's security and health
    and today, they wield con-
    siderable weight in the country's
    upper echelons.
    Complicating the Jewish
    image, several Jews have
    recently become involved in
    illegal activities, such as tax
    evasion, fraud, and briberies, all
    of which have been covered by
    the newspapers. Wohlstein says
    that "at least six Jews have been
    indicted for using their political
    influence to gain grants. New
    money is supplanting our morals.
    And these incidents are giving a
    bad name to our community.''
    At the same time the Jewish
    community has received several
    bomb and kidnapping threats.
    THE THREATS have come to
    nothing and were probably in-
    spired by a handful of PLO
    students at the University who
    was angered by Israel's invasion
    of Beirut. Although the threats
    are probably empty, guards now
    stand duty around the clock at
    the synagogues and the Hebrew
    school, and an underlying sense
    of uneasiness pervades the com-
    munity.
    Also, Jews have not been
    totally free of problems in the
    past. Traditionally the country
    has been a little wary of new-
    comers an attitude that af-
    fected Jewish settlement. In
    1937. the Refugee Economic
    Corporation bought land with the
    idea of making a settlement for
    central European Jews. The
    government decided it was illegal
    for a foreign country to buy land
    for settlement purposes.
    In 1941, legislation was in-
    troduced to nationalize all foreign
    businesses, which could have
    destroyed all Jewish enterprise
    and the community as well. The
    law luckily, was never enforced.
    Three years later, another unsuc-
    cessful attempt was made to ban
    addling, which would have hurt
    the economic security of many
    lews.
    AFTER WORLD War II with
    tin influx of European Jews, the
    Costa Rican government un-
    derwent a revolution that led to
    an investigation of the status of
    all .Jews in Costa Rica As a
    result, all visas issued to Jews
    prior to the revolution were
    cancelled. Again nothing came of

    the legislation. In 1952 the Junta
    demanded a law restricting all
    businesses to native Costa
    Ricans. an anti-Semitic campaign
    that put Jewish homes and insti-
    tutions in jeopardy.
    With the 1963 election of Jose
    Figueres, however, one of the
    country's most popular
    presidents, the situation for Jews
    began to improve. Since then,
    there have been no anti-Semitic
    incidents ... at least not until
    recent bomb threats. But these
    are the handiwork of a few
    radicals. The atmosphere other-
    wise in Costa Rica is most
    hospitable towards Jews.

    In general, Jews have it good"
    in Costa Rica. They are free to
    express themselves religiously
    and politically. They are affluent
    enough to wear European suits
    and designer jeans and send their
    children to Israel and the United
    States. They live in a country
    where people are easy-going and
    relaxed in their attitudes, and
    where freedom of religion and
    expression are protected at all
    costs. It is little wonder that the
    young Jews who venture to visit
    Israel and the United States
    return to live in Costa Rica.

    Costa Rica Embassy Move \
    Of 'Historical Importance'
    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica
    - (JTA) Costa Rican
    President Luis Alberto
    Monge has told a group of
    American Jewish leaders
    here that his decision to
    transfer Costa Rica's
    embassy from Tel Aviv to
    Jerusalem was one of
    "tremendous historical
    importance."
    The President told the group of
    more than 100 who were here
    Jan. 23-30 on a "mission of
    appreciation" for the transfer
    that the diplomatic move, taken
    last year, supports "the
    sovereign right of Israel, like all
    other nations, to determine its
    own capital."
    THE WEEK-long mission
    grew out of an initiative taken by
    the Anti-Defamation League of
    B'nai B'rith and was sponsored
    by five U.S. Jewish organi-
    zations.
    Addressing the Jewish leaders
    at a dinner last week, Monge said
    he was gratified that Costa
    Rican Israeli ties are deepening
    and added that the two nations
    share an adherence to "many
    human values im,d
    preserving world peace ana
    improving conditions for th.
    human race." "*
    Since 1948. the Costa Rw
    leader went on, Israel has becom,
    "a formidable example for th!
    entire world of technical, cultural
    progress, economic development
    and spiritual greatness." He
    added: "I love respect and
    admire the people of Israel and
    Jewish communities throughout
    the world."
    Others at the dinner meeting
    held at San Jose's Cariari Hotei
    included Israeli Ambassador
    David Tourgeman. Costa Rican
    government officials and
    members of the nation's Jewish
    community.
    RABBI MORTON Rosenthal
    director of ADL's Latin Ameri-
    can Affairs department, and one
    of the leaders of the mission
    along with David Blumberg,
    former international president of
    B'nai B'rith, told Monge that the
    group had come to Costa Rica
    "primarily to express our ap-
    preciation to you, your govern-
    ment and the people of Costa
    Rica for your support of the state
    of Israel."

    By MORTON I. TEICHER
    Jewish Floridian Book Review Editor
    Jewish Floridians know very
    little about Jews in other parts of
    the South. In this respect, as in
    so many others, we are closer to
    our kin in northern urban areas
    than to those in the South. A
    breach in this wall of ignorance
    was made in 1974 with the
    publication of "The Provincials:
    A Personal History of Jews of the
    South," by Eli Evans, himself a
    native-born Southern Jew who
    followed the well-worn path from
    South to North.
    That year also saw the appear-
    ance of a less well-known book on
    the same subject by Harry
    Golden, called "Our Southern
    Landsmen." Golden moved from
    North to South as did Lewis Sch-
    mier, the editor and author of this
    latest effort to remedy our lack of
    knowledge about Southern Jew-
    ry-
    SCHMIER, a professor of his-
    tory at a small Georgia college,

    members of the Southern Jewish
    Historical Society, established in
    1977. The Society holds annual
    meetings on the Southern Jewish
    experience and helped to sponsor
    this book.
    Schmier has written an in-
    troductory chapter, telling us
    about Wessolowsky, and a con-
    cluding chapter describing the
    state of our knowledge about
    Southern Jewry. While he failed
    to provide a bibliography, he uses
    footnotes to list many items of
    interest to those who would like
    to find out more about the Jews
    of the South. However, he is
    highly critical of these publica-
    tions, dismissing them as
    "random collections" or as the
    products of "ill-trained laymen."
    The major part of the book
    consists of 24 letters written by
    Wessolowsky to Rabbi Edward
    B. Browne, the publisher in
    Atlanta of a weekly newspaper
    called "The Jewish South." The
    paper appeared from 1878 to
    1882. Wessolowsky was associate
    editor for three years, resigning
    in 1881 when the paper moved to
    New Orleans. His letters, written
    for "The Jewish South," were
    sent in 1878 and 1879 during the
    course of two trips which
    Wessolowsky made to 60 dif-
    ferent places in Alabama, Missis-
    sippi, Missouri, Arkansas,
    Louisiana, Tenneessee and
    Texas.
    THE PURPOSE OF his trips
    was to get subscriptions for the
    newspaper and to promote B'nai
    B'rith, of which Wessolowsky
    was an officer and an ardent
    advocate. He was interested in
    furthering Jewish unity, seeing
    B'nai B'rith and "The Jewish
    South" as a means of bringing
    together the small groups of
    Jews, scattered throughout the
    South. His letters report on the
    Jewish condition which he noted
    in his travels.
    A keen observer, he held
    strong opinions, praising those
    places where Jews had a temple,
    a B'nai B'rith lodge and Jewish
    education for the children and
    roundly criticizing those commu-
    nities which failed to provide
    these elements of Jewish life.
    His letters are witty and
    detailed. They capture a time and
    places which are but dim
    memories, now restored to our
    awareness by this delightful
    book.

    LUCY S. DAWIDOWICZ, also
    a professor of Jewish history, has
    enlarged an essay she wrote for
    the American Jewish Year Book
    into this short history of Ameri-
    can Jews from 1881 to 1981. The
    initial year marked the
    assassination of the Russian Czar
    which was followed by pogroms
    and large scale migration of Jews
    to America. The ensuing century
    was filled with great events that
    affected American Jews, most
    notably the Holocaust and the
    establishment of the State of Is-
    rael.
    Breathlessly, Dawidowicz
    sketches these events, super-
    ficially speeding from one to the
    other. Her preface promises a
    "more comprehensive book to
    come."
    The original essay was a
    sufficient precursor of the book to
    come. To turn it first into this
    small book and eventually, into a
    larger book is excessive churning.
    IT IS HOPED that in the new
    book, Dawidowicz will place the
    American Jewish Committee in
    proper perspective. Important as
    that organization is, she writes as
    though its history and that of
    American Jewry are one and the
    same. Also, the new book should
    avoid her monstrous neologism,
    "pogromize" which should be
    deeply buried in the same
    oblivion as that other popular
    non-word, "prioritize."
    Finally, it would be a good idea
    for Dawidowicz to learn about
    Southern Jewish history from
    Schmier and his colleagues. This
    could expand her over-emphasis
    on New York Jewry, and it could
    correct, her dubious opinion that
    there exists "seething anti-
    Semitic prejudice beneath the
    surface of Southern society."

    U.S. COMPLICITY IN BARBIE'S ESCAPE
    NEW YORK (JTA) The Anti-Defamation League ol
    B nai B rith has called upon the Senate Select Committee on In-
    telligence "to pursue vigorously" reports of American com-
    plicity in the post-World War II escape by Nazi gestapo chief
    Klaus Barbie, the recently apprehended "Butcher of Lyons"
    now awaiting trial in France.
    TERRORISTS IN RUE COPERNIC
    BOMBING NABBED IN SPAIN
    PARIS (JTA) Spain announced that it had arrested
    several right wing terrorists who might be responsible for the ex-
    plosion in the Rue Copernic Synagogue here in October, 1980,
    which killed four persons and wounded 32 and raised a storm of
    protest and outrage throughout the world.
    French police say, however, that they still believe that the
    Rue Copernic explosion was carried out by a Palestinian dis-
    sident group.
    ADL SETS UP DORE SCHARY AWARDS
    NEW YORK (JTA) A program of Dore Schary Awards
    for film and video production of college and university students

    B'rith to honor the memory of the film maker who was affiliated
    with the ADL for more than 40 years.
    SHARANSKY ENDS HIS HUNGER STRIKE
    NEW YORK (JTA) Imprisoned Soviet Jewish activist
    Anatoly Sharansky, currently completing the fifth year of a 13-
    year sentence at the notorious Chistipol Prison, has ended his
    nearly five-month hunger strike to protest the denial of mail and
    visits from members of his family, privileges allowed to other
    prisoners. The Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) and
    the Union of Councils of Soviet Jews (UCSJ) confirmed the
    news.

    had received, would in fact be applied to those Jews seeking to
    make aliyah.
    FRANCE PLANS 'ANTI-HATE" MEET
    PARIS (JTA) President Francois Mitterrand will convene
    an international conference which will study the best ways to
    prevent anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination in the world.
    Mitterrand told a seminar of intellectuals convened by 'he
    French Ministery of Culture that the special "anti-hate" con-
    ference will be held in Paris before the end of the year. The Presi-
    dent reportedly has asked a small group of intellectuals to pre-
    pare an agenda and draw up a list of possible delegates to the
    meeting.
    ISRAEL FREES ABOUT 100 PRISONERS
    FROM SOUTH LEBANON DETENTION CAMP
    TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel freed about 100 prisoners from
    the Ansar detention camp in south Lebanon. But according to
    press reports, the camp has become a hotbed of Palestine
    Liberation Organization activity.
    The prisoners were released in what officials described as a
    ihinning-out process. About 5,000 Palestinains and Lebanese
    remain in the camp, however. They have not been granted
    prisoner-of-war status.
    Israeli newspapers reported that the PLO is maintaining tight
    discipline among the inmates and has turned the camp into an
    effective training ground and school for the PLO. Senior PLO
    members are said to be in command of the camp's various sec-
    tions.

    Haddad Extends Control in South Lebanon
    By FRANK WUNDOHL
    SI DON, Lebanon -
    JTA) Maj. Saad Had-
    dad, leader of the Israel-
    backed Christian Free Leb-
    anon Forces, has extended
    the area controlled by his
    militia to virtually all of
    south Lebanon from the Is-
    rael border to the Litani
    River, an area far larger
    than the border strip he
    originally controlled.
    At the invitation of the Israel
    Defense force. Haddad held an
    impromptu press conference in
    this Lebanese seaport, the coun-
    try's fourth largest city, for
    members of the American Jewish
    Press Association-United Jewish
    Appeal mission traveling in Leb-
    anon. They were assembled in the
    courtyard of the IDF compound
    here, flanked by a dozen freshly
    painted Sherman tanks provided
    Haddad's forces by Israel.
    WITH AN IDF spokesman,
    identified only as Maj. Shlomo,
    standing by, Haddad, responding
    to questions, told the American
    Jewish journalists that the pres-
    ence of the tanks represented "a
    redeployment of forces." He was
    referring obviously to his pro-
    nouncement, made hours later,
    that he was broadening his base
    of operations.
    The IDF spokesman said, "We
    think it's time for him to help us
    do our job." He added, "It's a
    question of principle. We must
    try to get them (Haddad's forces)
    to take care of Israel's northern
    border because it is good for all of
    us." He said Haddad had demon-
    strated an ability to unite Leban-
    on's diverse elements to "stop
    killing each other and work
    together against the PLO."
    Haddad said he was "not too
    optimistic" about the withdrawal
    of foreign troops from Lebanon.
    "The political situation is too
    complicated. I don't think the
    Syrians will pull out," he said. He
    cited the introduction of new
    Soviet-made SAM-5 missiles as a
    sign the Syrians are not consider-
    ing an imminent withdrawal from
    Lebanon.
    been cleared by the Israeli
    commission of inquiry of any
    involvement in the west Beirut
    refugee camps massacre. But he
    refused to comment on the forced
    resignation of Defense Minister
    Ariel Sharon. "This is i^jj.
    problem," he said.
    Asked about the discovery 0f
    some 15 more bodies in anj
    around Sidon, Haddad observe^
    "Many people still have weapons
    I hope such things will stop, it j.
    not to the benefit of anyone in
    Lebanon that this vendetta gn
    on. This is a real crime."
    Wide Use of 'Holocaust'
    Term Deplored
    NEW YORK A sharp *
    tack on those who distort and
    abuse the term "holocaust,"
    without its historic Jewish refe-
    rence, was made by Azaria
    Rapoport, special adviser to the
    Embassy of Israel in Washing-
    ton.
    Appearing before a conference
    of 150 members of the National
    Executive Committee of the
    American Gathering of Jewish
    Holocaust Survivors, Rapoport
    said that the forthcoming April,
    1983 American Gathering in
    Washington "will demonstrate
    who the victims and who the
    culprits of the Holocaust are."

    Israel-Phalangist Relations Deteriorating
    By DAVID LANDAU
    JERUSALEM (JTA)
    - Israel's relations with
    the Christian Phalangists
    I in Lebanon have deterio-
    ! rated of late, and Jerusalem
    seems to be concentrating
    now on increasing the po-
    wer and influence of its ally,
    Maj. Saad Haddad, leader
    of the Christian militia, in
    I south Lebanon.
    Pundits here and abroad are
    uncertain whether this is a ploy
    j (o prod President Amin Gemayel,
    leader of Phalangist party, to
    accept Israel's terms for a with-
    drawal and security agreement or
    whi-lher it means the Israelis
    have given up on the Gemayel
    government and are following a
    contingency plan.
    THE CONTINGENCY, predi
    I rated on the failure of the Israel-
    j|.el>anon-U.S. negotiations, now
    in their seventh week with little
    progress to show, is for Israel to
    secure its northern border by
    inilaterally establishing a secu-
    rity zone in south Lebanon with
    he help of Haddad. This plan,
    I observers say. has been in the
    making since the end of last year
    [and recent events give it some
    credibility.
    The growing sense of estrange-
    Iment from the Phalangists,
    imel's ally against the Pales-
    tinians and Moslem leftists,
    teems lo stem from a feeling here
    that I hey could have exerted
    I mo re pressure on Gemayel to
    [i oik hide an accord with Israel.
    The rift with the Planangists
    surfaced about three weeks ago
    lafter Defense Minister Ariel
    I Sharon returned from what he
    [described as a tough meeting
    [with the veteran Phalange leader,
    I Pierre Gemayel, in Beirut. The
    I elder Gemayel is the father of
    lAmin and of the late Bashir
    I Gemayel. I^ebanese President -
    Ielect, who was assassinated last
    ] September.
    SHARON TOLD the Cabinet
    Ithal he had warned Pierre
    Gemayel that Amin Gemayel
    kould hardly be expected to
    ;overn I/>hanon if he took his
    orders from Syria and Saudi
    [Arabia. Israel has been charging
    blicly that the Syrians and
    \iudis were pressuring the Leb-
    anese President to resist the kind
    if accord Israel demands with
    banon.
    Sharon's report to his Cabinet
    >lli agues leaked to the press and
    taken as an insult by the
    'halangist leader. Later the same
    peek. Pierre Gemayel delivered a
    tinging attack on Israel, ac-
    ting Jerusalem of collusion
    litli Syria to partition Lebanon
    It o spheres of influence.
    The situation is aggravated by
    continuing bloody fighting
    ftween the Phalangists and
    Iruze villagers in the Shouf
    fountains district ot Lebanon an
    Tea under Israeli occupation.
    naron reportedly warned Pierre
    kmayel that Israel would with
    h>w its forces unilaterally to the
    kilometer security none north
    its border, leaving the Phal-
    hgists and other Christian
    [ctions to fight it out with the
    Jze and Moslem militias
    hauled by Israel.
    I SHARON ADDED fuel to the
    t>y remarking that President
    i'tnavel should apply "to his
    prmn friends" tefput an end to
    tailing of Christian east
    positioned behind Syrian lines.
    Responding to one minister's
    question, Sharon said the Israel
    Defense Force would certainly
    not intervene in what was "a
    matter between the government
    of Lebanon and the government
    of Syria."
    The Phalange-run "Radio Free
    Lebanon" accused Israel for the
    first time of openly aiding the
    Druze. "Israeli forces are
    preventing our forces from
    confronting attacks mounted
    against us by Druze Socialists in
    A ley." the radio said. A lev, once
    a popular mountain resort, lies
    astride the main Beirut-Damas-
    cus highway. The Phalange radio
    report indicated that the Druze
    have overrun the town.
    At an Israel Lebanon-US.
    meeting at Khalde, Antoine
    Fatale. head of the Lebanese
    delegation, said his government
    held the IDF responsible for what
    wuu haorjeninK in Alev. The IDF
    holds the Aley area and is there-
    fore responsible for the Druze
    success and the Christian retreat
    from the town, Fatale said.
    Reagan's Remarks Confusing?
    Complete differences of opinion with Israeli of-
    ficials appearing cool were evidenced last week after
    President Reagan said that the United States is
    "prepared to take all necessary measures" to
    "guarantee" the security of Israel's northern borders
    once the Israeli army withdraws from Lebanon. His
    remarks seemed to imply that for the first time he
    would be willing to send U.S. troops to help protect
    the Israeli-Lebanese border from Palestinian
    bombardments or raids.
    After the speech American officials were quick to
    maintain that the president's promise did not
    represent a new commitment by the administration,
    and there was confusion over what he really did
    mean. In Jerusalem, Israeli leaders said that U.S.
    guarantees could not substitute for direct security
    arrangements with Lebanon, and Prime Minister
    Menachem Begin stated, "We are going to stick to
    our demands for security arrangements."

    How Barbie Escaped
    Freedom?
    By CHARLES ALLEN, JR.
    . NEW YORK (JTA) -
    Klaus Barbie, the Gestapo
    "butcher of Lyons," re-
    cently extradited from Bo-
    livia to France on charges
    of conducting mass
    murders and deportations
    of French Jews and mem-
    bers of the resistance
    movement during the
    Holocaust was aided in his
    escape from Europe in late
    1949 and early 1950 by the
    Vatican, the U.S. Army's
    Counter Intelligence
    Corps (CIC) and the In-
    ternational Red Cross.
    This correspondent has pieced
    together froin various docu-
    ments, including the State De-
    partment's Barbie's movements
    since bis first utilization by the
    CIC in 1947 until his expulsion
    from Bolivia 36 years later
    BARBIE TOOK the so-called
    "monastery route," an under-
    ground railroad, so to speak, for
    scores of wanted Nazi war
    criminals. The route was known
    to the U.S. embassy in Rome
    which did nothing to stem the
    flow of wanted war criminals
    from Europe, most of them
    originating in the American-oc-
    cupied zone of Germany.
    The northern starting point of
    the "monastery route" was in
    Bavaria and the Austrian fron-
    tier, then dipped south to the
    Italian Alps, dropping further
    south to way-stations leading to
    exits from the ports of Genoa or
    Naples.
    My information shows that
    Barbie, disguised as a monk, was
    secreted from monastery to
    monastery along route. He went
    to Milan and then to Genoa and
    from there to Franco Spain, then
    to Portugal which was ruled by
    fascist Premier Antonio de
    Oliveira Salazar, and then by
    ship to Latin America where his
    first country of call was Peru, not
    Bolivia. There is some evidence
    indicating that Barbie went first
    to Argentina, i
    CORROBORATION of my
    findings came dramatically a
    week ago from Dr. Erhard
    Dabringhaus, a 65-year-old
    faculty member of Wayne State
    University in Detroit. Dabring-
    haus served as Barbie's case of-
    ficer in the CIC in Germany in
    1948. He exclusively told NBC-
    TV News and the Detroit
    Free Press that Barbie had
    been secretly employed as an in-
    former by the CIC in 1948 for the
    then astounding sum of $1,700 a
    month.
    Barbie provided information
    about other fugitive Nazis then in
    Europe, Dabringhaus said, con-
    firming in detail what the Paris-
    based Nazi-hunters, Beat* and
    Serge Klarsfeld, had revealed as
    long ago as 1972 about Barbie's
    utilization "by the American
    secret service agenc t."
    The Klarsfelds also cited a
    1969 "secret" West German
    government report that said:
    "... the Barbie family arrived in
    Bolivia in May, 1951 .
    rumor(ed) with foreign
    (Vatican) passports." On
    Wednesday, Feb. 9, Italy's
    largest daily newspaper, Paese
    Sera, interviewed Dabringhaus
    and asked whether Barbie had
    escaped by the "monastery
    route" of the Vatican.
    DABRINGHAUS said for at-
    tribution: "That's right. How did
    you know that? He was passed
    along (by the American CIC) to
    the 'monastery route,' probably
    disguised as a priest, went down
    along the Austrian and Italian
    Alps, down to Genoa and from
    there through Franco Spain and
    on to safety to Peru."

    escape of Barbie as well as

    genocidists came in a hitherto
    "Top Secret" 36-page set of State
    Department documents which
    have come into my possession,
    largely by way of my Freedom of
    Information requests over the
    past five years.
    It is an internal memorandum,
    classified "Top Secret" and dated
    May 14, 1947. Copies are shown
    to have been sent to the head of
    the "American Legation in
    Vienna" and to the then U.S.
    Secretary of State, five-star Gen.
    George Catlett Marshall. The
    State Department has refused to
    discuss this report.
    THE TITLE of the "Top
    Secret" report is "Illegal Emigra-
    tion Movements In and Through
    Italy." Its author was Vincent La
    Vista, an international lawyer
    then (1947) military attache to
    the American embassy in Rome
    and already a skilled intelligence
    diplomatic State Department of-
    ficer.
    The "La Vista Report," as it
    became known in American intel-
    ligence circles, broke down into
    precise detail more than 22 per-
    mutations of SS, Nazi Party, eth-
    nic collaborators who were
    knowingly guided safely through
    the Vatican's"monastery route."
    The La Vista Report also noted
    in detail the names and political
    backgrounds of the high-ranking
    members of the Roman Catholic
    hierarchy who master-minded the
    war criminals escape routes along
    which Barbie successfully fled.
    One of the termination points
    before exiting Italy to the sunnier
    climes of Latin America was the
    notorious pro-fascist cleric, Msgr.
    Alois Hudal, Bishop of Elia, resi-
    dent of Collegio Teutonics de
    Santa Maria dell Anima in Vati-
    can City.
    HUDAL PERSONALLY had
    welcomed many SS escapees.
    Hudal defied public criticism of a
    high cleric's intercession in behalf
    of wanted Nazi mass murderers:
    "I am neither police nor cara-
    binieri," he said in 1947. "My
    Christian duty is to save whoever
    can be saved."
    Hudal s background, address
    and telephone numbers along
    with the fact of his "directing"
    the escapees from the Munich-
    Augsberg-Austrian region are
    carefully recorded in the docu-
    mented pages of the "Top
    Secret" La Vista Report.

    The State Department report
    stated: "The Vatican of Course is
    the largest single organization
    involved in the illegal movement
    . the Vatican's justification for
    this illegal traffic is simply the
    propagation of the Faith. The
    Vatican)'s) desire to infiltrate not
    only European countries but
    Latin American countries as well
    . with people of all political be-
    liefs as long as they are anti-
    Communist and pro-Catholic
    Church."
    REFERRING to yet another,
    earlier report (dated December
    16, 1946), this "Top Secret"
    document went on to state that
    "the Vatican at various times
    and under certain conditions
    utilize the International Red
    Cross" in order to obtain "Red
    Cross Documents" (or passports)
    for Nazi escapees.
    "The Free Committee of
    Austria," the State Depart-
    ment's "Communication to the
    U.S. Secretary of State" said,
    was a staunchly anti-Com-
    munist" group "operating under
    the protection of the Vatican"
    and "knowingly" used Red CroJ
    passports "sometimes with and
    sometimes without" the Intern-1
    tional Red Cross's knowledge.
    Barbie, charged with 4,OO0J
    murders and 8,000 deportatiooif
    of French Jewish men, women!
    and children, used on Interu-I
    tional Red Cross Documeal
    (passport) to effectuate his [
    cape from Europe to Lttal
    America, according to investipl
    tors.
    The State Department's 'Toil
    Secret" report referenced an un-l
    named source in the "WeKaitl
    Units" of the Vatican's "Refugwl
    Bureau" who is quoted as having!
    admitted to the U.S. State D|
    partment: "There is a defuihil

    Pressuring Israel is dumb
    By THOMAS A. DINE
    The Reagan administration
    has been pursuing a policy
    premised on and obsessed with
    conflict with Israel. Officials in
    Washington are dreaming that
    they can impose dramatic
    changes on Israeli policy or even
    force a new government on Israel.
    This foolish attitude has
    | produced grave errors in U.S.
    [policy-
    American behavior has contri-
    buted substantially to a
    dangerous erosion of Israeli-
    American relations. The adminis-
    tration places all the blame on
    Israel, but much could be done on
    | this side of the water to salvage
    the moral and strategic bonds
    ["that are vitally important to both
    [countries. The turning point
    {created by Israel's commission of
    [inquiry into the Beirut massacre
    [should be exploited to begin that
    [salvage operation.
    High Arab officials visiting
    {Washington have been treated
    {royally among them, in the
    jast several weeks, the Kings of
    [Morocco and Jordan and the
    [President of Egypt. Saudi
    srinces are the object of par-
    ticular devotion and genuflection.
    1!> contrast, visiting Israeli
    officials are given the cold
    shoulder, and Prime Minister
    Menachem Begin is not even
    lllowed to come for his semi-
    wnual beating-
    The president's own opinion of
    Israel is said to be favorable. I
    elieve this. Yet, in two years in
    tffice he has not taken a single
    major initiative which would
    easonably be described as
    1'lping to improve the relation-
    ship. I say that as someone who
    initially welcomed the president's
    Middle East initiative of last
    summer.
    Although the administration
    lc-nies that it considers massive
    pressures an appropriate way to
    Meal with an ally like Israel, it has
    fact invoked more sanctions
    it a longer time period than
    Lny preceding administration.
    Including suspending for over a
    year now the agreement on
    Strategic cooperation; refusing to
    rpmplete the sale of F-16s which
    it- own specialists have con-
    irmed are necessary to offset the
    missive quantities of arms going
    to various Arab countries;
    holding up approval of tech-
    nology transfers for the Lavi
    aircraft; and, most importantly,
    sending and then leaking to the
    press menacing notes to the
    prime minister of Israel implying
    that the entire relationship may
    be in question. In recent days,
    the administration has begun
    hinting darkly that still more
    sanctions lie ahead.
    The administration's behavior
    is convincing an important
    minority in Israel that the United
    States is not a reliable ally. Some
    Israelis are actually saying they
    must be prepared to go it alone.
    This loss of confidence is
    destructive to the long-term
    interests of both countries and it
    could, if things get worse, force
    Israel to consider what it will do
    if it is completely isolated while
    the Arabs continue their military
    buildup.
    Moreover, key elements of the
    administration's approach are
    unacceptable, not just to the
    Likud government, but to the
    great majority of Israelis of all
    parties.
    It's time for the administration
    to open its eyes to the realities of
    the Arab world, instead of being
    blinded by the myth of
    "moderation." Syria has terri-
    torial ambitions in Lebanon and
    the administration has not
    produced any evidence that
    Damascus intends to leave.
    Instead, in recent days, the
    Syrian army has expanded its
    presence. Jordan's King has not
    even agreed to sit down with
    Israel's leadership to fulfill the
    promise of Camp David. Yet,
    according to news reports from
    the Arab world, the administra-
    tion has promised him our most
    sophisticated weaponry, 97
    percent of Judea and Samaria,
    guarantees of a settlement freeze,
    political control of East Jeru-
    salem, and (according to Ameri-
    can press accounts) equipment
    for a secret Jordanian rapid
    deployment force.
    Saudi Arabia has opposed
    direct Arab talks with Israel,
    including discouraging King
    Hussein to come to the peace
    table, as well as pressuring Leba-
    non not to sign realistic agree-
    ments with Israel. Peace in the
    Middle East requires major
    changes in the Arab world, and
    American interest is not served
    by supplicating the Arabs and
    blaming the Israelis.

    Thomas Dine is executive di-
    rector of the American Israel
    Public Affairs Committee, the
    leading pro-Israeli lobbying
    organizations.
    It is time for the United States,
    and especially the Reagan
    administration, to lift its eyes
    from the leaser problems of the
    Middle East, many of which have
    little real consequence for the
    U.S., and to return to the essen-
    tial strategic realities of the re-
    gion which affect vital American
    interests.
    Israel's air force and navy are
    the dominant forces in the
    Eastern Mediterranean, and
    Israel freely offers to the United
    States many forms of defense co-
    operation including vital air and
    naval bases which are central to
    the U.S. national security in-
    terests.
    Some of the President's ad-
    visers seem to have lost sight of
    the main objective of his policy,
    that "the paramount American
    U.S.. Israeli
    Officials Meet
    By DAVID FRIEDMAN
    WASHINGTON (JTA)
    American and Israeli officials are
    meeting "on the ground" in Leb-
    anon to try to avoid future in-
    cidents such as the one when a
    Marine Corps Captain brandish-
    ed a weapon at three Israeli
    tanks, a State Department
    spokesman said.
    The spokesman, Alan Rom-
    berg, refused to say anything
    about the incident except to de-
    clare that he stood on the state-
    ment he made that the incident
    was an Israeli challenge to the
    marines. He would not comment
    either on Israel's denial that its
    tanks were attempting to cross
    American lines.
    Rut Romberg indicated that
    the two conflicting statements
    demonstrated that there is a
    "misunderstanding" of an agree-
    ment between the Israelis and
    marines on the demarcation line
    between the area held by Israel
    and the zone patroled by the
    marines.
    Romberg said it was not useful
    to discuss the past, nor was the
    problem a "legal issue." He said
    the issue now is one of "trying to
    prevent incidents" in the future.
    The spokesman also would not
    comment on a report in the Phila-
    delphia Inquirer by its reporter
    who was 400 yards from the scene
    of the alleged clash and challeng-
    ed the U.S. version of the in-
    cident. Romberg said the view
    from 400 yards "is not something
    we would respond to."
    interest in the Middle East is to
    prevent the region from falling
    under the domination of the
    Soviet Union." In the past 24
    months, Israel has driven two
    Soviet clients the PLO and the
    Syrians out of a major Arab
    capital and saved Lebanon for
    the United States and the West:
    relinquished the Sinai, helping to
    cement the bond between the
    United States and Egypt; offered
    to provide air and naval facilities
    to the U.S. armed forces, while
    Saudi Arabia and other Arab
    countries have declined to
    cooperate; and delivered a major
    blow to the reputation of Soviet
    arms, on which Moscow's in-
    fluence in much of the world
    depends. Yet, to listen to some of
    the president's advisors, all of
    this is insignificant compared to
    the urgent need for new security
    arrangements in southern
    Lebanon.
    When a partnership is
    strained, it is not enough for one
    side to call on the other to make
    all the changes. Nor is it con-
    structive to focus obsessively on
    the differences, and to ignore the
    common interests. Much can be
    done in Washington, now, to
    improve a relationship that is
    much more significant for the
    long-term interests of the United
    States than many of the coun-
    tries being so ardently pursued
    today.

    Habib had taken
    back with him to the Mid-
    dle East.
    Reagan said that because of
    the "difficulty in getting the
    present forces of the PLO, the
    Syrians and the Israelis out of
    Lebanon," he would be "willing
    to go along" with an "increased
    redeployment" of the marines.
    But he stressed that such a move
    would have to come about in con-
    sultation with the Italian.
    French, and British, who along
    with the U.S. make up the multi-
    national force (MNF) in Lebanon
    as well as other countries that
    might join the MFN.
    The President's remarks were a
    slight change in Administration
    policy which up till now has
    maintained that it would consider
    increasing the number of marines
    and their areas of deployment
    only after an agreement on the
    withdrawal of foreign forces was
    reached. But Reagan stressed
    last night that "I think it will be
    well worth it" because it is "too
    great an opportunity to finally
    bring peace to the Middle East
    for us to let this go by."

    Rabbi
    Comments:
    The following is brought to Flori-
    dian readers by the South County
    Rabbinical Association. If there
    are topics you would like our
    Rabbis to discuss, please submit
    them to the Floridian.
    Rabbi Ted Feldman
    Once, many centuries ago, a student was coming from his
    teacher's house, riding leisurely on his donkey and felt happy
    and filled with pride because he had learned much that day in
    class. By chance he met an extremely ugly man who greeted
    him, "Peace be upon you, sir."
    Instead of politely returning the greeting, he said to the man,
    "How ugly you are! Are all your fellow citizens as ugly as you?"
    The man answered, "I don't know, but go tell the craftsman
    who made me, 'How ugly is the vessel you have made.' "
    How often do human beings jump to conclusions such as this
    student, missing an appreciation that all things are the product
    of our Creator? It seems almost to be a human trait to spend
    time categorizing others into neat little packages that do no
    justice to the totality of being. Our culture today dictates to us
    the virtues of physical beauty often at the expense of neglecting
    that which is deeper and more lasting.
    At some level it is truly simple to make the human being
    physically beautiful. The beauty that comes from the inside is
    truly more difficult to attain but ultimately more worthwhile.
    The student in the story made grievous errors. Aside from
    rudeness, he made an assumption that this man's ugliness was
    beyond God's world. In addition, he failed to take into account
    the potential inner beauty and strength that this man may have
    possessed. The man's retort was, indeed, moat powerful. If there
    were any complaints about how he looked the student needed to
    direct those to God.
    The beauty of God's world is that everything is not the same
    and that there is an awareness about the varying dimensions of
    life. In Jewish liturgy there is a blessing, a praise of God, that is
    to be recited when viewing someone who does not seem to fit
    into our category of beautiful. It reads: "Blessed are You, O
    Lord our God, King of the Universe, who varies his creatures."
    It is with the awareness of this blessing that the student should
    have approached the stranger on the road. It is with this
    awareness, I would hope, that all of us would approach the
    virtues of beauty and remember that that which is more abiding
    lies below the surface, All of God's world is a celebration of His
    creative powers. It is ours to rejoice in that creation.

    Warning About Terrorism
    Loss of Jewish Identity Greater Threat
    By DAVID FRIEDMAN
    WASHINGTON -
    (JTA) Yehoshofat Har-
    kabi, one of Israel's leading
    experts on Palestinian ter-
    rorism, has warned that the
    loss of identification among
    Jews is a greater threat to
    world Jewry and Israel
    than terrorism.
    "Terrorism is not major
    problem for Israel," Harkabi, a
    Hebrew University professor,
    said in a discussion on interna-
    tional terrorism in the final day of
    the four-day biennial meeting of
    the Board of Governors of the
    World Jewish Congress. "You
    cannot destroy a state by terror-
    ism."
    BUT HARKABI warned that
    there is a problem in maintaining
    Jewish education. He said where
    once identification was cemented
    by religion, it is now based on
    support of Israel. But he added
    where Israel had been a "source
    of pride" to Jews around the
    world, it is now "embarrassing
    them."
    Harkabi said now was the time
    to seek a settlement with the
    moderate Arab countries. He said
    if this does not occur, the radical
    Arab states which realize they
    cannot destroy Israel will now
    turn their attention to seeking to
    radicalize the moderate Arab
    states. He said they believe that
    if this can be accomplished they
    will have a united Arab world
    against Israel.
    It is better to make a realistic
    "compromise" now than "wait
    for the showdown in the future,"
    Harkabi said.
    BUT HARKAP* and Frank
    Perez of the State Department's
    Office for Combatting Terrorism
    agreed that terrorist attacks
    against Israel and Jews will rise
    again as a result of the Palestine
    Liberation Organization's defeat
    in Lebanon. They both said the
    recent attacks against Jews and
    Jewish institutions in Europe
    were not done by the PLO but
    Palestinian splinter groups.
    In introducing the discussion,
    Kalman Sultanik, a WJC vice
    president, said that anti-
    Semitism is not a "passing
    phase" He said no country lacks
    m***-
    anti-Semitism no matter the size
    of its Jewish population nor the
    make up of its political and
    economic structure.
    He said it is in the democratic
    countries where anti-Semitism is
    most seriously manifested be-
    cause "any statements of demo-
    cratic governments that criticize
    Israel play in the hands of anti-
    Semitism."
    IN A discussion of anti-
    Semitism, Dr. Stephen Roth, di-
    rector of the London-based Insti-
    tute of Jewish Affairs, said that
    "after the events of the past nine
    months, we have a right to be
    alarmed but not alarmists."
    He said that according to
    figures computed by the Insti-
    tute, which is operated by the
    WJC, there was a record 104 ter-
    rorist attacks against Jews in
    1982, half of them in West Euro-
    pe. He said 25 persons were
    killed, and 400 were wounded. In
    more than 75 percent of the cases,
    the terrorist acts were committed
    by Palestinian Terrorists occa-
    sionally helped by local gangs,
    Roth said.
    Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg of
    Englewood. N.J., a WJC vice
    president, said that while most
    Jews believe anti-Semitism is
    "more menacing today than it
    has been since the end of World
    War II," he expressed belief "the
    comforting probability is that the
    institutions of American demo-
    cracy will withstand future
    shocks and that anti-
    Semitism, despite Jewish fears, is
    not likely to burgeon in the
    United States."
    He said the major threat to
    Jewry is that unless major popu-
    lation trends are soon reversed,
    "American Jewry will soon lose a
    million people, or perhaps more
    by the end of the century."
    Hertzburg declared that the
    American Jewish community
    "cannot afford such losses. Such
    large energies will be mustered in
    the efforts of self-preservation."
    Governor Graham Declares
    February As ZOA Month
    The Governor of the State of
    Florida, The Right Honorable
    Bob Graham, has issued a State
    Proclamation establishing the
    month of February as "Zionist
    Organization of America
    Month." This was done to recog-
    nize the efforts of the ZOA in
    promoting a positive image of the
    Jewish community in Florida and
    the solidarity of this community
    with the State of Israel.
    The proclamation will be read
    from the pulpits of every syna-
    gogue during the month of Feb-
    ruary to alert the Jewish commu-
    nity to remain strong and af-
    firmative in their feelings to-
    wards Israel. This is being done
    to negate the adverse and totally
    biased media coverage by some of
    the mass communication forces
    in this state.
    The Zionist Organization of
    America is the oldest national
    Zionist organization whose voice
    has constantly been heard by
    American leaders in behalf of Is-
    rael.

    CRC Chairman
    Communicates With State Dep't. On Soviet Jews
    By GERI ROSENBERG
    The Community Relations
    Council of the South County
    Jewish Federation is the co-
    ordinating body for social action
    in this community. It represents
    a unified Jewish voice to the rest
    of the nation and the world. In
    the past, the CRC has been
    viewed as the body organizing
    various holiday and commemora-
    tive events, as well as responding
    to urgent needs in Israel.
    However, the CRC handles a
    multitude of other important
    issues affecting Jews in South
    County, throughout the United
    States, and internationally. The
    following letter was sent to
    Marianne Bobick, Chairman of
    the CRC from the United States
    State Department in response to
    Jewish Family and
    ildren's Service Programs
    Jewish Family & Children's
    Service of Boca Raton has been
    developing a program of Jewish
    Family Life Education under the
    direction of Dena Barash. MSW.
    The aim of JFLE is to provide
    lectures, workshops and groups
    as a means of educating and pro-
    viding support for people in our
    community. Jewish Family Serv-
    ice has a staff of professionals
    who are involved in the JFLE
    program.
    In the past few months, pro-
    grams have been presented at the
    Hillel Organization at Florida
    Atlantic University, Women's
    American ORT, Brandeis
    Women, Beth El Single Parents
    Support Group, and the South
    County Kosher Meals Program.
    Jewish Family Service is coor-
    dinating a community-wide pro-
    gram on Cults, in conjunction
    with the Community Relations
    Council of South County Jewish
    Federation, on Sunday, March 6
    at 7:30 p.m. at B'nai Torah Con-
    gregation in Boca Katon. It will
    feature ex-Moonie Helen Fried-
    man who is presently coordinator
    of the Task Force on Cults of the
    Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
    tion.
    In March, Jewish Family
    Service is offering a 10 week
    workshop on Systematic Train-
    ing for Effective Parenting
    (STEP) under the leadership of
    Nancy A. Feldman, MSW.
    In response to the changing
    times and the effects social
    changes have had on family rela-
    tionships, today's parents have
    an increasing interest in finding
    more effective ways of relating to
    their children. This interest has
    led to the development of STEP,
    a realistic and sensible approach
    to parent-child relationships.
    STEP is open to the community.
    Interested parents should con-
    tact Jewish Family & Children's
    Service at 395-3640.
    We sit round the Seder table each year, and celebrate The Exodus
    through traditions passed down to us over thousands of years. These
    traditions have become so much a part of our heritage they are
    Inscribed in the Haggadah for all the world to see: the matzoh. the
    MaNishtanah: the Aphlkoman. the recitation of the plagues, the
    chant of Dayenu. and on and on through the night, closing with
    Chad Cadya:-
    At each Seder, however, there are other kinds of traditions...
    traditions which are |ust as strong, just as cherished. They are our
    personal family traditions I nw riltcn and unsung, they are as much a
    part of our Seders as the hard-boiled eggs and bitter herbs. And
    imoim these, one of the most popular traditions Is the wine that is
    used throughout the Seder evening. That Is Manischcwllz. of course.
    In millions of homes. It just wouldn I be Passover without a bottle of
    Manischcwllz Kosher Wine. It Is a wine that spans the generations
    and. somehow, symbolizes the continuity of the family Seder. Faces
    may change, we grow older, some-
    times there Is a new youngster
    to ask the MaNishtanah"... but
    always there Is the Manischcwllz.
    It holds a traditional and hon-
    ored place at our Seder table.

    her letter inquiring about newly

    I felt it important that our
    readers be privy to this level of
    communication.
    United States Department
    of State
    Washington, D.C. 20520
    Ms. Marianne Bobick
    Chairman, Community Relations
    Council
    South County Jewish Federation
    2200 N. Federal Highway Suite
    206
    Boca Raton, Florida 33432
    Dear Ms. Bobick:
    . I am writing in response to
    your letter of December 21 to the
    President concerning the case of
    Feliks Kochubievskiy, who was
    recently sentenced to imprison-
    ment in a Soviet labor camp.
    The Department of State is
    familiar with Mr. Kochu-
    bievskiy's unfortunate situation.
    He, his wife and mother-in-law
    have been attempting to
    emigrate from the Soviet Union
    to Israel since 1978. He was
    reportedly arrested in September
    1982 for his continuing efforts to
    found a USSR-Israel Friendship
    Society in Novosibirsk, USSR,
    an organization which would
    parallel the already long-
    established Israel-USSR Friend-
    ship Society in Israel. As you
    pointed out, in December he was
    tried and convicted of
    "dissemination of fabrications
    slandering the Soviet state and
    social system" and was sen-
    tenced to two-and-one-half years'
    confinement in labor camps.
    The United States Govern-
    ment has consistently expressed
    its concern to the Soviet Govern-
    ment over the obstructions which
    are encountered by those seeking
    emigration from the USSR.
    Denial of such basic rights as
    freedom of movement and family
    reunification are matters of
    international significance, which
    we have raised with the Soviets
    both in bilateral talks and in
    multilateral fora such as the
    CSCE Review Conference at
    Madrid. We have similarly taken
    every appropriate opportunity to
    call for an end to Soviet im-
    prisonment of those whom the
    regime regards as political dissi-
    dents. We have stressed the
    importance of these basic human
    rights issues in the context of
    overall Soviet-American
    relations.
    Unfortunately, the Soviet
    Government has not been
    responsive to our efforts, nor to
    those of other concerned Western
    governments and independent
    human rights organizations.
    Despite their nominal assent to a
    number of international
    covenants affirming fundamental
    rights and freedoms, the Soviets
    persist in maintaining that in-
    carceration of "criminals" on
    essentially political grounds is an
    exclusively internal policy
    matter. They likewise contend
    that emigration is strictly a
    domestic issue, and they reject
    any U.S. attempts to present
    views on behalf of those, like Mr.
    Kochubievskiy, who seek to
    emigrate to a third country such
    as Israel. While we condemn such
    arbitrary and inhumane
    behavior, and have often made
    this known to Soviet officials, we
    lack the ability to alleviate
    prisoners' circumstances in any
    direct fashion, such as securing
    the release of specific individuals.
    We appreciate your interest in
    Mr. Kochubievskiy. The Depart-
    ment of State will continue to
    follow his situation closely and
    will attempt to assist him in
    every appropriate way. We are
    determined to persist in our
    efforts in support of all those who
    are unjustly imprisoned in, or
    denied the right to emigrate
    from, the USSR.
    Sincerely,

    Now It's OfficialSharansky Hunger Strike Is Over
    By JTA Report
    NEW YORK Imprisoned
    Soviet Jewish activist Anatoly
    Sharansky, currently completing
    the fifth year of a 13-year sen-
    tence at the notorious Chistipol
    Prison, has ended his nearly five-
    month hunger strike to protest
    the denial of mail and visits from
    members of his family, privileges
    allowed to other prisoners, the
    Student Struggle for Soviet
    Jewrv and the Union of Councils
    of Soviet Jews confirmed here.
    According to the SSSJ and the
    UCSJ, this information was re-
    vealed in a letter Sharansky
    wrote dated Feb. 7 and received
    by his mother, Ida Milgrom, in
    Moscow, that he had resumed
    eating on Jan. 14. Since then, the
    letter said, he has been receiving
    food with vitamins and slowly re-
    gaining some weight. But
    Sharansky wrote that he con-
    tinues to suffer from severe heart
    pains and is unable to participate
    in the half hour of daily exercise
    in the prison courtyard, which is
    the only exercise the inmates re-
    ceive, the Soviet Jewish groups
    reported.
    Sharansky ended his hunger
    strike, which he began on Sept.
    27. after he received two heavily
    censored notes from his mother
    who in January tried in vain to
    see personally. According to pub-
    lished reports. Mrs. Milgrom was
    denied access to her son because
    Sharansky was still on a hunger
    strike.
    Viet 'Boat People-
    Mark "Year of Pig'
    TEL AVIV The "Year of
    the Pig" was celebrated in Israel
    this week. It was marked by the
    330-member Vietnamese com-
    munity the "boat people"
    who fled the Communist regime
    in Vietnam and were granted
    refuge by Israel in 1977 after
    being denied haven by their'
    neighbors in southeast Asia.
    The Vietnamese held a party at
    the community center in Azor, a
    town near Tel Aviv where they
    live. They greeted their new year
    with traditional dancers in their
    natives costumes and a feast of
    Vietnamese dishes, some of
    which have acquired a Middle
    Eastern flavor. Of the 450 Viet-
    namese who landed in Israel six
    years ago, about 120 have left for
    other countries. Those who re-
    main have found employment
    chiefly in the restaurant and
    hotel trades.
    Tax Law to Apply
    To Emigres-Rosen
    TEL AVIV Rumanian Chief
    Rabbi Moses Rosen, making a re-
    versal from an earlier statement,
    asserted here that the new
    Rumanian law requiring all emi-
    grants to reimburse the govern-
    ment for the free secondary and
    higher education they had re-
    ceived, would in fact be applied to
    those Jews seeking to make aliya.
    "Just as I announced then
    (last November! the positive ap-
    proach of the authorities in
    Bucharest, I feel obliged to report
    ... on the change that has taken
    place in Rumania and that the
    new law also applies to Jews,"
    Rosen told reporters.
    The publication of the new
    directive last November caused
    widespread consternation among
    Jews around the world. The Rea-
    gan Administration has re-
    peatedly warned that the educa-
    tion tax could affect Most
    Favored Nation Trade status to
    Rumania on the grounds that the
    new law violates the terms of the
    Jackson-Vanik Amendment to
    the Foreign Trade Act which
    links trade with Communist bloc
    nations to their emigration poli-
    cies.
    Envoy Denies Reagan
    Undercuts Camp David
    CLEVELAND Ambassador
    Richard Fairbanks, the Adminis-
    tration's special negotiator for
    the Middle East peace process,
    denied that President Reagan is
    "seeking to impose a peace or
    dictate a settlement." He spoke
    in response to charges made by a
    Notre Dame University Mideast
    exDert. Prof. Alan Dowty, that
    Reagan's Middle East initiative
    of last Sept. 1 was "leap-frog-
    ging" the Camp David peace
    process.
    The criticiain and response
    were expressed to more than 400
    delegates from 11 national and
    111 community organizations as-
    sembled at the four-day annual
    plenum of the National Jewish
    Community Relations Advisory
    Council (NJCRAC).
    Fairbanks maintained that the
    Reagan plan had "challenged the
    parties to the conflict to meet at
    the negotiating table" and that
    "Arab leaders are now talking
    about how to make peace with Is-
    rael not whether."
    Begin Beats Back
    Non-Confidence Moves
    JERUSALEM Premier
    Menachem Begins coalition de-
    feated three non-confidence mo-
    tions in the Knesset. The vote
    was 64-56 against the motion
    submitted separately by thi
    Labor Alignment, Shinui and the
    Hadash (Communist) Party manding that the government re-
    sign because of the findings o(
    the commission of inquiry into
    the Beirut refugee camps rots,
    aacre.
    The heated debate, which pre-!
    ceded the voting, was one of the
    rare occasions when all 120 Knei-
    set members were present and in
    their seats. Former Premier Yiu-
    hak Rabin led off for the opposi-
    tion Labor Party. He argued that
    the government should resign be-
    cause it had ministerial responsi-
    bility for the grave faults dis-
    closed by the commission's re-x
    port.

    attended the event. The King's
    Point Glee Club, led by Iz Siegel.
