kjen appointed chairman of the
gew Young Professionals and
Executives Division. In making
le appointment, Dr. Larry
Charme, 1984 Men's Division
chairman, spoke of forming this
inew group within the Men's
Division: "It is now time for the
professional and business com-
nunity to offer their commitment
to the Jews of the South County
Lea. Arnold Berliner is an ex-
tremely dedicated and respon-
sible person. He will help create a
formidable group of young men
who will lead others in their
professions to stand up and be
I counted.''
Berliner graduated from New
York University School of Medi-
cine in 1965. He moved to Florida
in 1973 and presently resides in
Boca Raton with his wife, Toni
ind his two children. Toni

continually active in his local
| Estancia campaign.
Summing up his feelings
Dr. Arnold Berliner
towards the role of the Young
Professionals and Executives in
the 1984 campaign, Dr. Berliner
explained, "The continued
success and growth of Federa-
tion's activities and fundraising
ability is extremely important,
ever more so in these politically
and militarily unstable times.
The health of American Jewry is
the viability of Israeli"
Intelligence Chief Reports
Thousands' of Palestinians
In Beirut, Bekaa
Israel's chief of military
I intelligence services, Gen.
IEhud Barak, estimates that
there are at least 1,000
larmed Palestinian
I terrorists in the Beirut area
and thousands of PLO

[valley of eastern Lebanon.

Barak was quoted as saying
that the army was aware of the
PLO support of the Druze when
it evacuated the Shouf area to re-
deploy along the safer Awali
River line.
The redeployment of the IDF
along the Awali River was the
lesser of two possible evils, the
choice between keeping Israeli
soldiers exposed to danger or to
withdraw knowing that what
might happen in the Shouf area
would not be to Israel's liking,
Barak said.
HE TOLD Bamahaneh: "The
Druze superiority over the
Phalangists in Lebanon did not
surprise Israel. Their superiority,
like Syria's success in increasing
its influence in Ijebanon, almost
without using its full power, was
one of the reasonable possibilities
foreseen by Israel in its with-
drawal from the Shouf."
Barak said the Syrians were
aiding the Druze and their allies
by providing them with supplies,
ammunition and weapons and
even allowing their "satellites" to
fire from Syrian-held territory.
He said he did not think the
Syrians would come to terms
with Israel remaining in its pre-
sently-held area of Lebanon but
would try to get Israel to with-
draw completely, possibly by
encouraging and allowing
terrorists to attack Israeli forces
south of the Awali River.
The intelligence chief conceded
that the aims of the Lebanon war
had not been fully achieved, even
though the PLO had been driven
out of south Lebanon, and large
quantities of their arms had been
captured and their headquarters
in Beirut was dismantled.
Didn't Think PLO
Would Join Druze
Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe
Levy has conceded that Is-
rael had "not taken into
consideration suffi-
ciently" the possibility that
Syrian and Palestine Liber-
ation Organization forces
would join with Druze
forces in the Shouf moun-
tains to fight against the
Lebanese army when it was
decided to redeploy the Is-
rael Defense Force to safer
lines along the Awali River
in south Lebanon.
Interviewed on Israel televi-
sion at the end of Yom Kippur,
Levy repeated that the IDF fully
expected the warring Druze and
Christians to resume fighting
once the IDF left the Shouf area,
although "we had done every-
thing in our power to coordinate
the withdrawal and bring about a
settlement before the predictable
and predictably cruel war
would break out."
But, he added, the details of
the process of renewed fighting
and their nuances were not ap-
preciated, nor was the influence
of the Palestinians and the
"To my regret," Levy said,
"these factors were not taken
into consideration, or not suffi-
ciently absorbed before our rede-
ployment when everybody was
talking about redeployment and
that it should be carried out, and
perhaps its was not convenient to
grasp that this redeployment
would have a price in this
HE RECALLED, however
that "Even in public, I had more
than one occasion to say that the
reinforcement and return of the
terrorists and the increase of
Syrian influence would be among
the results of our redeployment."
Levy added again, "to my
regret, time was wasted (before
making adequate arrangements
to prevent the return of the Pal-
estinians) and no strong enough
attempts were made and perhaps
the illusion was also created that
if we are, constantly, as it were,
on the verge of a settlement, we
will simply continue staying
there, and maybe it was this situ-
ation of lack of decisiveness
which led to a rather worse devel-
A similar admission was made
by Uri Lubrani, coordinator of
Israeli affairs in Lebanon. Ad-
dressing the Economic Club here,
he said Israel had anticipated
that if there was no agreement on
the Lebanese army taking over
the positions evacuated by the
IDF, the Druze would have the
upper hand.
HE SAID Israel believed the
Palestinians would take part in
the fighting but had not reckoned
that their intervention would be
as massive as it was. He said he
thought the IDF would remain in
Lebanon for some months but
their stay should not be reckoned
in years.
Asked why Israel had main-
tained contact with the Druze
even when it was clear the Pales-
tinians would join them, Lubrani
admitted there had been a
dilemma. But Israel was
determined that no Israeli sol-
diers should be harmed during
the redeployment which was
carried out smoothly, without
Levy for his part, stressed that
Israel could and would deal with
any Palestinians who tried to
enter the security zone north of
Israel's borders. He explained
that the new line along the Awali
River was an "open line,"
meaning that Lebanese refugees
could move southwards and Is-
raeli patrols would be active
north of the line.
Arafat made it clear that the
Palestinians want the withdrawal
of the 5,400-member force and are
supporting Syria's stand on this
issue. He was speaking in the
Syrian-controlled port of Tripoli
which he reached by plane from
The Syrians also called for the
withdrawal of the multinational
force and warned the United
States that Syria might "be
forced to respond" should the
U.S. troops in Beirut continue to
fire on the Syrian-backed Druze
militias. The warning was carried
in the state controlled paper Al
Thowra and was later repeated
by a Syrian military spokesman
quoted by Radio Damascus and
monitored here.

Attacked Synagogue?
Suspected Italian Terrorist Arrested
By JTA Services
ROME A 37-year-old Italian
terrorist, Francesco Fiorina,
suspected of having organized
the bombing of the Milan Jewish
community center on the night of
September 22, 1982, has been ar-
rested in Milan. The attack on
the synagogue, which destroyed
its main entrance, occurred nine
days before the attack on Rome's
main synagogue during Sabbath
and Simcha Torah services in
which a two-year-old child was
killed and 37 people were
Fiorina is also wanted on 10
other charges, including two
homicides, a series of burglaries,
a bank robbery and the planting
of an explosive charge at a prison
during which one man was killed
and four terrorist prisoners
The terrorist leader of the
ultra-leftist COLP organization
was captured during a shoot-out
with police in which the police
killed Antonio Gaetano, the
driver of the car in which Fiorina
was riding. An unidentified wom-
an in the car escaped.
Czech Artifacts
To Qo on Exhibit
World War II, the Nazis in occu-
pied Czechoslovakia brought
artifacts from the Jewish com-
munities of Bohemia and
Moravia to Prague for a planned
"museum of an extinct race." By
the end of the war, they had as-
sembled some 94,000 objects
depicting the religious and
secular life of Czech Jewry.
These items are now part of the
some 140,000 artifacts in the
State Jewish Museum of Czecho-
slovakia in Prague. Now, nearly
400 historical and artistic objects
are on loan to the U.S. for an ex-
hibition, "The Precious Legacy:
Judaic Treasures From The
Czechoslovak State Collections,''
which opens Nov. 9 at the Smith-
sonian Institution's Museum of
Natural History.

foliage (sechach) for their sukkot.
The JNF has issued public
warnings refering to the stiff
penalties 200,000 Shekel fines
and prison terms for tree-
vandals. JNF guards and police-
men have taken up watch at
"strategic" spots, especially
wooded areas near large cities,
with a view to preventing or ap-

At the same time, the JNF has
been cooperating with local au-
thorities to provide law-abiding
sukka-builders with foliage cut
by qualified gardeners and fores-
ters in the course of regular (and
necessary) pruning of trees.

Isrssli Druzs
Protest U.S. Role
TEL AVIV A delegatbn of
Israeli Druze leaders met with
U.S. Ambassador Samuel Lewis
here to protest alleged American
intervention against Druze in
Lebanon fighting the Beirut gov-
The delegation, headed by the
spiritual leader of the Israeli
Druze, Sheikh Amin Tarif, con-
tended that U.S. support for
President Amin Gemayel of Leb-
anon was a "one-sided interven-
tion in Lebanese politics."
An Embassy spokesman said
later that Lewis had stressed that
the U.S. was aiding the official,
legitmate government of Leba-
non, not supporting any faction
in that country. While the
meeting was in progress, about
100 Druze demonstrated outside
the Embassy carrying banners
and chanting slogans warning
the U.S. against a "second Viet-
Massacre Anniversary
Encourages Disturbances
TEL AVIV The anniversary
of the massacre of Palestinian
refugees at the Sabra and Shatila
camps was marked by distur-
bances Sunday in the West Bank
and in Israel itself.
In East Jerusalem a general
strike of merchants was called
but its effectiveness was hard to
gauge because it was the first day
of the four-day Moslem holiday of
El-Fitr. Shops are usually closed
during the holiday, anyway.
There were several instances of
stone-throwing at Israeli vehicles
in several West Bank towns. A
central demonstration to mark
the first anniversary of the mas-
sacre was held in Nazareth when
some demonstrators called for
the establishment of a Palestin-
ian state.
Ground Forces Name
Shomron Commander
TEL AVIV Maj. Gen. Dan
Shomron, who commanded the
airborne operation that rescued
hijack victims at Entebbe airport
in Uganda in 1976, has been
named commander of the ground
forces command, a newly estab-
lished branch of the Israel De-
fense Force. Shomron completed
his tour as commander of the
southern front 18 months ago
and had been without active as-
signment since then.

Trying to Split Country
anese President Amin
Gemayel accused Israel and
Syria of using local Quis-
lings and mercenaries to
try to split up the country
between them.
Speaking on French television,
Gemayel, once believed to be pro-
Israel, was as critical about Israel
as he was about Syria. He said
the two countries, "the two
super-powers in the Middle East
(Israel and Syria) want the same
thing: to rule over part of Leba-

name "Laval" for "Quisling.''

by Israel and Syria to do their

Cabinet Studies Lebanon in Gosed Meeting
The Cabinet met in
dosed session Sunday to
discuss the worsening
jjtuation in Lebanon where
fierce fighting continues in
the Shouf mountains and
near Beirut between
Syrian-supported Druze
militias and the Christian
Phalangists backed by the
Lebanese army and its
jmall air force.
Lebanese army aircraft again
bombed what were described as
Druze and Palestinian positions
in the Shouf area and Beirut
Radio claimed that five Syrian
md Druze artillery batteries were
destroyed. Syrian artillery was
reported to have extended the
fighting by shelling areas north
of Beirut where the Lebanese air
force has been operating from a
temporary airfield.
THE CABINET convened as a
ministerial defense committee,
meaning that its deliberations are
classified and the possibility of
"leaks" to the media reduced.
Deputy Premier David Levy pre-
sided at the request of Menachem
Begin who remains confined to
his home with a skin ailment and

Begin formally resigned as
Premier last Thursday but con-

stressed that Begin retains all of

\ taker regime continues.

Meanwhile, an Israeli Druze
leader, Deide Atche, accused "the
propaganda machine of the
Phalangists" of trying to draw
Israel into the battle by claiming
"that there are Palestinians
fighting alongside the Druze" in
the Shouf mountains.
"I really do not believe that,"
Atche said on an Israel Radio
interview. "However, if it were to
be proven, I think our position in
Israel as Druze would be reconsi-
dered toward the Druze com-
munity in Lebanon," he added.
HE DISCLOSED that the Is-
raeli Druze "recently asked an of-
ficial Druze delegation to come to
us from the Shouf mountains to
prove to Israel that there are no
Palestinians or Syrian fighters
alongside the Druze community.
Otherwise, we told them, our
situation in Israel would be
confused as loyal citizens of Is-
rael and members of this society

500-member Dutch contingent of
the United Nations Interim Force
in Lebanon (UNIFIL) will be
withdrawn shortly and will not be
replaced. The Netherlands gov-
ernment had announced several
months ago that it intends to pull
its troops out of UNIFIL because
its role there is unclear.
Dutch troops had been part of
UNIFIL ever since the UN force
was sent to Lebanon following
Israel's invasion of south Leb-
anon in 1978 in what was known
as the Litani campaign. Their
departure will leave UNIFIL's
strength at about 5,000 men sup-
plied by several countries. But
the UNIFIL mandate, extended
periodically by the UN Security
Council, is itself unclear under
the present circumstances.

No Mystery Behind Emerging of Yitzhak Shamir
Supporters of Labor Party Chairman
Shimon Peres made a gallant effort earlier
this week to squeeze their champion into
office as Israel's new Prime Minister, but
odds were as late as Tuesday that the
Foreign Minister, Yitzhak Shamir, would
get the job. In any case, it was presumably
all settled by Wednesday, and we are going
with the notion that the mantle of
Menachem Begin has been placed by now
on the shoulders of Shamir.
There is no mystery behind the reasoning
in this. Political considerations among the
parties in the Knesset apart, the major
issue is how best will the Begin policies
continue. There is no doubt that some
would like to see them come to an end, or at
least modified. These dissenters run the
gamut from Peres himself to President
But Israeli realities are such that the
dissenters are not likely to win the day. It
is also true that there is a strong consensus
in Israel today against a high-profile role in
Lebanon. It is after all the war there that
brought Mr. Begin to his resignation the
fact that in the end even his own coun-
trymen showed sufficient loss of stomach
for the war as to demand that "the boys be
brought back home."
Not only did this sentiment spell finis for
Mr. Begin s premiership; it also hastened
the "sudden" Israeli decision to redeploy
its troops in Lebanon south to the Awali
River to evacuate the Shouf Mountains
at a time when the United States was in
fact urging Israel to stay on.
But none of this can in the least be
construed as a total withdrawal from the
Israeli commitment to the principle that
security considerations were what sent
Israel into Lebanon in the first place and
that Israel will not leave that war-torn
country until these considerations are
assured. There can be little doubt that
Yitzhak Shamir is precisely the tough-
minded leader to guarantee a continued
policy toward this commitment.
UN Back on Stage
True to its reputation, the United
Nations General Assembly got back to
business after the summer vacation
Tuesday on the mini-tidal wave of a
wrangle. This time, we must say with some
considerable satisfaction, it was the United
States that did some tough talking.
Charles Lichenstein, deputy permanent
U.S. representative to the United Nations,
told the Russians at a meeting Monday of
the UN Committee on Relations with the
Host Country, meaning the United States,
that if they were unhappy about the way in
which our country, or more specifically the
States of New York and-or New Jersey, are
handling the decision not to let Andrei
Gromyko land here with an Aeroflot jet
". the United States strongly en-
courages such member states (meaning the
Soviet Union and its flunkies) seriously to
consider removing themselves and this
organization from the soil of the United
In case this was not clearly understood,
Ambassador Lichenstein put it even more
succinctly: "The members of the U.S.
mission to the United Nations will be down
at dockside, waving you fond farewell as
you sail into the sunset."
We know that this is not the stuff of
which true diplomacy is made. Never-
theless, we must confess to experiencing a
considerable amount of satisfaction in it. It
is not often that we tell the Soviets in
public where to get off. After the Flight 007
tragedy, it makes us feel somewhat better.
New Punching Bag
None of which, however, is cause for cele-
bration, for the season is once again upon
us when, on the shores of the East River,
where the "unaligned" Third World and its
Russian master hold sway, Israel is likely
to become a main punching bag again.
Indeed, odds are that some effort will be
made as in the past to challenge Israel's
membership credentials.
But this session, there is something
different in the usual UN Soap Opera mix.
To begin with, there is the tlTs. threat, and
Ambassador Lichenstein's tough words
give it more credence, to withhold its mem-
bership dues should the Arabs, joined by
the Russians and other such responsible
member states, manage to pull it off. This
is a threat of such magnitude as to squelch
the effort even before it can get off the
ground. What would the free-loading, high-
riding foreigners do in New York without
Yankee dollars to feed their exotic taste in
food and other entertainment? They might
simply have to retrench and some of them
even go home.
More important, in the new session, the
stand-off between the United States and
the Soviet Union is for the first time so hot
as a consequence of (1) Lebanon and (2) the
Korean jet tragedy, that there are far more
important punching bags there these days
than Israel to delight the jaundice of the
United Nations delegates.

Although Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir has been
Israel's Foreign Secretary
since 1980, a period in
which Israel completed its
withdrawal from Sinai, and
the country experienced its
sixth war, in Lebanon he
remains something of an
unknown quality to many
people outside the Jewish
Whereas Defense Minister
Mrwhe Arens, not to speak of
previous Foreign Ministers like
Abba Eban and Moshe Dayan,
a*e known and remembered in
government diplomatic circles
abroad and in Jewish commu-
nities, Shamir has a quiet work-
manlike style in which getting
things done seems to supercede
public relations for their own
WHILE A gift for image
building seems a worthwhile as-
set for a budding Foreign
Minister, Yitzhak Shamir ap-
peared to belong to the "old
school" of diplomats who respect
the conventions of traditional
diplomacy, preferring to
maintain international relations
through the recognized diplo-
matic channels.
Rather than go in for the per-
sonal image building, like Dayan,
or conduct diplomatic maneuvers
through leaks to the media, like
Kissinger, Shamir preferred the
norm accepted before the First
World War when statesmen
placed importance on establish-
ing credibility among each other,
conducting their business and
establishing their relationships
away from public attention.
This is not to say that in an era
of mass media the public aspects
of diplomacy, on the one hand,
and diplomatic credibility on the
other, are irreconcilable. Never-
theless, Israel's case for Opera-
tion Peace for Galilee might
arguably have been better under-
stood abroad had it been
projected more effectively. From
this point of view, the lessons of
the Lebanese War are being se-
riously studied in Israel.
experience, Shamir is not publi-
city-seeking As his officials
explain, Shamir's approach has
been to go over the details, read
all the cables, and do everything
to establish solid working rela-
tionships with other foreign
statesmen. The same is also true
of U.S. Secretary of State George
Shultz. And the common
chemistry in the personalities of
the two men probably helped
create a solid basis of mutual
understanding between them.
Shamir has also won the
respect of other statesmen, in-
cluding Italian Foreign Minister
Colombo. And his period as a
senior officer in Israel's Mossad
(Secret Service) has no doubt ad-
ded to the "quiet side" of his
Shamir was born in eastern
Poland in 1915, where he joined
the Be tar youth movement. He
began studying law in Warsaw
but discontinued his studies upon
emigrating to Palestine in 1935,
where he enrolled as a student at
the Hebrew University of Jeru-
salem. In 1937, he joined the
Irgun Zvei Leumi, only to break
away from it to join the Lohamei
Herut Israel or "Stern Group,"
where he occupied leading posi-
tions and lived in constant
ARRESTED BY the British
authorities in 1941 and 1946, he
twice escaped. After the second
escape, from Eritrea, he reached
the French colony of Djibouti by
way of Ethiopia, and was given
political asylum in France,
returning to Israel in May 1948,
upon the establishment of the
Jewish State.
From 1955 to 1965 Shamir was
a senior operative in Mossad.
After he left in 1965, he went into
business, managing various
enterprises, including an Israeli-
French commercial company.
During this time, he was also
active on behalf of Soviet Jewry.
In 1970. Shamir joined the
Herut movement, and in 1973
won a Herut seat in the Knesset.
In 1975 and 1977, he was elected
chairman of the movement's
Executive Committee. In the
Ninth Knesset, in 1977, he was
elected Speaker of the Knesset.'
He had long been considered one
of the possible contenders as suc-
cessor to Prime Minister Begin.
Fluent in French adequate in
English, Shamir is short, usually
smiling and always determined.
SHAMIR'S relations with
Begin have always been reported
as close. Similarly, inside the
Foreign Ministry, relationships
were cordial and respectful

itias is a "sideshow" aimed

Iwould be able to reach an agree

Jumblatt. in an interview on
the CBS TV "Face the Nation'
Program, while attacking Gem-
|yel, also indicated he would be
willing to discuss with the Leba-
|Boe President a political solution
Wm would give more power to
ine various Moslem religious
groups in Lebanon. But he indi-
go that there would have to be
Pwaseftre first and that the Leb-
EU?se,army would have to with-
in* from the Shouf mountains.
, AWallah Bouhabib, Lebanon's
"nbassador to the U.S., appear
5 on the same CBS program,
wared that the Lebanese army
* more Druze in its ranks than
Pumblatt's militia. He also
juroed that more people from
we various religious groups in
l^oanon are in the army than in
"* various militias. Bouhabib
enied that the government was
ontrolled by the Christian Phal-
* saying there were no
lumbers of that political party in
J* government. But former Vice
^dent Walter Mondale. ap-
"T">g on the Brinkley program,
"we U.S. should be doing
we to press Gemayel to bring
JH-nristian groups into the
awmLent whkh' Mondale
. ne has not been doing.
MONDALE, a candidate for
the Democratic Presidential
nomination in 1984, said the U.S.
has to define its role in Lebanon
and should do so in partnership
with Congress. He said the
Marines were sent into Lebanon
last year in the belief that Syria
would withdraw, but the Syrians,
supported by the Soviet Union,
do not want to leave Lebanon.
Mondale, who said the War
Powers Act should be invoked,
said the Marines should be
defended but that they should
not take over the fighting for the
Lebanese army. Gemayel had
stressed earlier that Lebanon
does not want the Marines "to
die for us," but they were in Leb-
anon to help with the process of
national reconciliation.
Gen. Paul Kelly, Commandant
of the Marine Corps, who also ap-
peared on "Face the Nation,"
gave a different interpretation of
the fighting now going on in Leb-
anon. He said the departure of
the Israelis from the Shouf
mountains left a "vacuum"
which the various groups are now
trying to fill and that they were
"positioning" themselves to get
into a better military posture to
negotiate a ceasefire.
HE SAID that Lebanon is now
"on the verge of maintaining a
stable government" and to sug-
gest that the Marines leave
would be "close to criminal."
Kelly stressed that the Marines'
position is defensive, and he
believes that they are being
shelled because they hold
strategic positions at the Beirut
airport and the main east-west
highway and not because they
are a U.S. force.
He said the shelling by U.S.
warships was against those in the
Shouf mountains who had shelled
the Marine positions. He said if
any Syrian troops were hit, aa
Damascus has charged, then that
was because Syrian forces were in
an area where they were not sup-
posed to be. He refused to com-
ment on what the U.S. would do
if the Syrians attacked the U.S.
forces as Damascus has threat-

U.S. policy in Lebanon should be,

Defensive Strikes Ordered;
U.S. Still Hoping
For Quick Ceasefire
(JTA) The Reagan
Administration is ap-
parently hoping that a
White House announce-
ment that the Marine com-
manders in Lebanon can
order defensive air strikes
will result in a quick cease-
fire between the Lebanese
army and Syrian-backed
Moslem groups.
Testifying before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
Nicholas Veliotes, Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs,
said the intensive negotiations
now going on could bring about a
ceasefire within the next 24 to 48
"predictions are always risky,"
State Department deputy
spokesman Alan Romberg said
that "there is a proposal on the
table which should satisfy the
legitimate requirements of all
Romberg would not go on into
details, but he did reveal that
special envoy Robert McFariane
was in Damascus while his
deputy, Richard Fairbanks, was
in Beirut. State Department
sources said that the parties
involved are the various
Lebanese factions who must
come to some kind of ceasefire
agreement that will lead the way
to national reconciliation.
THE OFFICIALS also noted
that Palestinians are also partici-
pating in the fighting against the
Lebanese army. But they
stressed that neither the Palesti-
nians nor the Iranians and the
Libyans who are also lined up
against the government of Pre-
sident Amin Gemayel, are in-
volved in the ceasefire negotia-
Israel is apparently not di-
rectly involved either, and
Romberg refused to reveal any
discussions that have been going
on with the Israelis about the
situation. But it was reported in
Israel that the Gemayel gov-
ernment through the U.S. asked
Israel to use its planes against
the troops firing at Beirut from
the Shouf mountains, recently
evacuated by Israel, and Israel
In this context the officials
said that Syrian approval of a
ceasefire agreement is "es-
sential" since the Syrians back
the various groups, including the
Druze, that are now fighting
against the Lebanese army.
Meanwhile, Romberg stressed
that the decision to allow the
Marine commanders to call up air
strikes if the Marines or the other
troops of the multinational force
are attacked was not a "threat."
He also pointed out that air
strikes are not "automatic" if a
British, French or Italian unit is
attacked. He said it will only be
used if the commander of the at-
tacked MNF force feels it is

Plans Finalized For Campaign
Cabinet Kickoff Meeting
Dr. Larry Charme, Men's Divi-
sion campaign chairman, enthu-
siastically announced the 1984
Campaign Cabinet Kickoff Meet-
ing. This meeting will take place
on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 5 p.m.
at the Federation offices.
In addition to the area and di-
vision chairpersons, General
Campaign Chairman Gladys
Weinshank will be present, and
current Federation President
Marianne Bobick will also attend.
Past President and Executive
Board member, James Baer will
participate in the Cabinet as
special advisor. On Oct. 5, he will
be in Israel on a mission and will
visit Kfar Saba to work in our
Project Renewal Area.
Dr. Charme stated with con-
viction: "'This Kickoff Meeting
underscores the commitment,
over the coming years, that will
be necessary in order to assure
that both our local Jewish com-
munity and Israel will flourish.
By raising Jewish awareness we
become more involved Jews.
With current events unfolding
rapidly, we Jewish leaders must
be better informed and more
courageous. This Kickoff Meet-
ing will act as a catalyst to infuse
the campaign with a sense of
pride and leadership."
Conn. Police Study
Yom Kippur Attack
Conn. (JTA) Police
are investigating a predawn
fire which damaged the
home of a Jewish state
legislator on Yom Kippur in
what authorities said was
the fourth arson attack on
the Jewish community here
in less than six weeks.
The home of Rep. Joan Kemler
and her husband, Dr. Leonard
Kemler, was damaged by a fire
reported shortly before 6 a.m.
The Kemlers and their two chil-
dren fled the house. Firefighters
said the fire was confined to the
outside walls of the first and
second stories of the home.
"It definitely was a case of
arson," said Police Chief Francis
Reynolds. "Accelerants were
used." He said two empty soda
pop bottles were found outside
the home that were apparently
filled with gasoline used to ignite
the fire.
KEMLER HAD been out-
spoken on the three earlier in-
cidents. On Aug. 10, arsonists
destroyed the sanctuary and
study hall of the Young Israel
Synagogue, an Orthodox congre-
Stion. Several days later, a fire
maged the building and several
religious articles at the Emanuel
Synagogue, a Conawvative
congregation of which the Kem-
lers are members. The following
day,' a firebomb was thrown into
the study of the home of Rabbi
Solomon Krupka. the spiritual
leader of the Young Israel syna-
Despite the more than $25,000
in reward money offered for
information leading to the arrest
of the persons responsible tor tne
series of attacks, and the in-
creased police protection and
investigations, no arrests have
been made. The Jewish Defense
League announced recently that
it would initiate armed patrols in
the area.
Help Is Here
Everyone feels frustrated.
Patients are frustrated; they
can't get rid of it. Doctors are
frustrated; they don't know how
to cure it. Even the pharma-
ceutical companies are frus-
trated; they can't develop a
wonder cure. What is it? Herpes.
It really does help to be able to
talk about one's conflicts and
problems in dealing with this
affliction. Now there is a place
where people can share their
feelings and learn to cope with

experienced therapist, Jewish

en him and his officials,
my of whom began their
eign Service careers during
Labor years. According to
avid Landau, diplomatic
spondent of the Jerusalem
st, morale in the ministry
uproved during Shamir's
Dure. This was partly due to
sir's close interest in each
! of major campaigns involv-
[ Israel, in contrast to someone
Dayan, who preferred to be
iformed only of the broad lines
f policy.
The high morale was also due
i Shamir respecting the advice
| his senior officials. Among this
were David Kimche who,
from being the ministry's
or general, is an acknow-
I expert on Lebanon. It was
vho signed the peace accord
i Lebanon on behalf of the Is-
i government.
[How will history see Foreign
nister Shamir? "Given the
ny challenges to Israel from
lbs and others in the interna-
environment, it is too
nplistic to measure his per-
ace according to diplomatic
luevements, comments Yosef
Aharon, chief of the
nistry's bureau and an
Itnowledged Arabist. Shamir
a clear perception of Israel's
interest, and in this
utext he has carefully weighed
" areas in which compromise
be made without affecting
I interests.
SHAMIR, Israel's Middle
*t policy should be based on
twin concepts of peace and
curity. "Where there is
th, there is peace. Peace
be unattainable if Israel is
or perceived to be so,"
"wr has argued. The Likud
be contrasted with the pre-
iw Labor governments in that
Likud has emphasized the
rty end of the peace secu-
I matrix.
[Shamir voted against the
"P David agreement when it
1 brought before the Knesset,
ever, that although there is no
war, the positive sides of the
Egyptian-Israel agreement,
including economic relations,
have not been implemented.
The Lebanese war further
divided the two countries.
Shamir rejects the cliche that it is
natural for Egypt to regain her
place in the Arab world at the
expense of the "unnaturalness"
of relations with Israel.
SHAMIR'S outlook cannot be
grasped, however, without
understanding the primary
regard given to the historical and
religious links between the land
and the people. The relationship
is indivisible and influences his
attitude to other issues.
Thus, Israeli rejection of a
Palestinian state in the ad-
ministered territories of Judea
and Samaria is not only an issue
of the security challenge which
such a state would pose but also
one concerning the indissoluble
links between these biblical re-
gions and Jewish history. The
solution of the "Palestinian pro-
blem" is in Jordan which, Shamir
points out, was born out of Pales-
tine. "The state today, known as
the Kingdom of Jordan," he says,
"is sn integral part of what once
was known as Palestine; its
inhabitants therefore are Pales-
tinian not different in their
language, culture or religious and
demographic composition from
other Palestinians," he added
last year in the influential
journal, Foreign Affairs.
Shamir, like his predecessors,
has noted that so much of the
Arab-Israeli conflict comprises a
war of semantics. "The reintro-
duction of the term 'Palestinian'
and its exclusive application to
Arabs of the 'West Bank' is
therefore a semantic exercise and
a calculated maneuver designed
... to undermine the legitimacy
of Israel," Shamir wrote.
BOTH THE "Palestinian
problem" and the Arab-Israeli
conflict have been elevated to be-
ing "cores" of the instability in
the region. In fact, Israeli diplo-
mats argue, a scientific survey of
the number of conflicts in the re-
chosen by a majority of nearly 60
percent against Deputy Prime
Minister David Levy. This is a
tribute to Shamir, even if the
prestigious daily Ha'aretz noted
that "There is a successor but
as yet there is no legacy."
Following his election, Shamir
announced his readiness at any
moment to return the leadership
to Menacbem Begin. But in the
long run this sounded more like
nostalgic lip service than hard,
realistic policy. It is now Yitzhak
Shamir who is in charge, and his
is indeed a giant of responsibility
now that Mr. Begin has definitely
stepped down.

3 Austrian Soldiers Caught
Smuggling Explosives from Syria
TEL AVIV (JTA) Three soldiers serving with
the Austrian contingent of the United Nations observers
force on the Golan Heights will be tried by Austrian
military authorities shortly on charges of smuggling
explosives from Syria to Palestine iLiberation
Organization members in Israel, it was learned here.
The Austrian Defense Ministry was quoted here as
saying that Austria's UN unit should not be blamed for
the actions of one or two of its members. But the officer in
command will be charged with failure to maintain
discipline, Israel Radio reported.
According to the reports, an Austrian Serge ant-
Major of Turkish origin and two other soldiers were
arrested on suspicion of smuggling drugs. During the
ensuing investigation in their unit, they were found to
have received explosives from Syrian agents in
Damascus. These were concealed in the spare wheels of
UN vehicles and brought into Israel where they were
delivered to and paid for by local PLO members.

Africa and Israel are being barred from the six-day
meeting which opened in New Delhi Sept. 18, according to

World Energy Conference, said South Africa and Israel

Militant Neo-Nazis
Seek Parliament Seats
BONN (JTA) A number of militant neo-Nazi
organizations have banded together to seek seats in the
Parliament of the federal state of Hesse in elections next
month that are seen as a crucial test for rightwing groups.
The neo-Nazis will run candidates under the banner
of "Action for Repatriation of Foreigners" (AAR).
THEY WILL be competing with other parties, in-
cluding the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party (NDP)
which, compared to the AAR seems "moderate."
One AAR candidate is Arndt-Heinz Marx, of Hanau,
a former member of the banned Werksportsgruppe
Hoffman, a violence-prone neo-Nazi group that
masqueraded as a sports club. He participated in a
military training program by the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Lebanon.
Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul, a member of the Social
Democratic Party (SPD) and of the European Parliament
has demanded that the AAR be banned. She said the
Hesse constitution provides sufficient grounds for a ban.
