Citrin pointed out that "the

follow us is extricably linked to

ening commitment to our sense of
Jewishness and spiritual identi-
"ISRAEL WILL increasingly
become an operational source
through which we crystallize and
catalize our heritage of Judaism
for ourselves and transmit that
heritage to our children.'
As a concrete example of this,
Citrin noted the need to become
more intimately and more
directly involved with the Jewish
Agency "to promote our joint
goals and objectives." This, he
emphasized, "points to in-
creasing involvement of our
Federations, who seek to parti-
cipate in facilitating aliya for
those constituents who want a
new life in Eretz Israel, and for
seeking strengthened and more
effective linkage with Israel as a
central resource for Jewish edu-
However, he stressed, "for all
that Israel is and will be in our
lives it is not and cannot be a
substitute for our own increased
commitments to creative Jewish
continuity at all levels in our
communities. Our ability to use

term, will be related to what we
can do for ourselves and with
ourselves in Jewish education
and in our home environments."
termed "a Jewish communal
partnership of concern with Jews
of oppression," Citrin said, to
sustained applause, that Soviet
Jewry "has been uppermost" on
the agenda of the CJF.
He recalled that the CJF was
well represented at Brussels III
Conference last spring in Jeru-
salem when, "with Jews and non-
Jews from all parts of the world,
.we called upon the Soviet
government to open its gates and
open its hearts to let our people

situation central and up front on

The "partnership of concern"
also involved efforts on behalf of
the Jews of Ethiopia. "We must
state categorically and em-
phatically that we are proud of
the efforts of Israel and the
Jewish Agency to bring to Israel
in 1983 the largest number of
Ethiopian Jews ever to arrive in
one year and. this, at huge
sacrifice and risk in human
terms, including physical
danger," Citrin declared, but
without disclosing the number.
FOCUSING ON the American
scene, Citrin dealt with the
problem that he said has become
one of "increasing concern" over
the last 20 years: "the mobility of
Jewish America." He pointed out
that just as North America is on
the move, so is Jewish America,
"even more so. Significant
portions of our people will not
reside as adults in communities
where they were born. In fact, in
the quest for livelihood, profes-
sional growth, career or personal
achievement, many will have
moved once, twice, three times
and even more."
Continuing with this theme,
Citrin noted that "mobility and
'continental citizenship' has
obvious advantages but a price is
paid in rootlessness and defection.
I am talking about our rooted-
ness with families, with friends
and familiar surroundings
rootedness in a Jewish lifestyle
and at-homeness, which we tend
to take for granted."
He warned that unless Jews on
the move are sought out,
welcomed and made to feel
comfortable and can have ready
access to Jewish life in their new
communities, "they will be prone
to drop out." To avoid this,
Citrin said the Federations must
convey to Jews on the move that
"the Jewish community cares
about them and their well-being
and offers them access to Jewish
institutional life, to the
synagogue, to the Jewish school,
to the Jewish community cen-
ters" and ,tO all other available
mtv ices.

Atlanta who was greeted both at
the beginning and at the end of

'Grave Mistake'
Brzezinski Opposes
Israel Collaboration
GENEVA (JTA) Zbiegniew Brzezinski, who was
National Security Adviser in the Carter Administration,
believes military collaboration between the U.S. and
Israel in the Middle East would be a monumental geo-
political error.
HE TOLD the Swiss daily La Tribune De Geneve, in
an interview published here, that such military
collaboration aimed at changing the balance of power in
Lebanon or to punish those responsible for terrorist acts
"would be a grave mistake on our part."
Brzezinski maintained that "This would signify that
Washington is abandoning its role as mediator in the
region to become an engaged protagonist. The European
countries will, in such a case, dissociate themselves from
the U.S. and the Soviet Union will no longer remain
passive in the face of such a coalition," he said.
HE NOTED that Moscow has kept a low profile in
Lebanon so far, even though it backs Syria.
Brzezinski characterized the existing relations be-
tween the U.S. and Israel as bad. "If currently, and in the
short term, the interests of both countries may coincide,
in the long term the Israeli policy may prove disastrous
for the United States," he said. He added that he believed
Israel was utilizing its rapprochement with Washington
to distract the U.S. from a comprehensive peace agree-
ment in the Middle East which is currently at an impasse.

of illegal possession of weapons
and other war materiel.
Younis had been accused spe-

the attack on the community
center. The murder weapon used

IDF Plane Down
Third Israeli Strike Scores in Lebanon
TEL AVIV In less
than one week, Israel
struck again\ on the
Syrian-held mountains east
of Beirut. According to Kol
Yisrael, as many as 18 war-
planes struck a half-dozen
villages in their 45-minute
This was the first retaliatory
strike this month against targets
in Lebanese territory held by Sy-
rian forces. Israel promptly ac-
knowledged that one plane was
downed by ground fire, although
Syria claimed two planes. The
pilot ejected and parachuted
safely in to an area held by the
Lebanese army.
THE PILOT was later picked
up by an Israel Air Force heli-
copter. In Beirut, reporters said
that Syrian arms fire was di-
rected at the pilot parachuting to
earth, but he escaped "in good

mile from Beirut airport, where

by Arab terrorists on Oct. 23,
when some 230 Marines perished.
Marine spokesman Wayne
Jones insisted that neither the
Marines nor the U.S. Navy had
been informed in advance of Is-
rael's intention to strike. Accord-
ing to Israeli command spokes-
men here, the air strike "came in
response to a long series of at-
tacks and attempted attacks
against Israeli occupation forces
in Southern Lebanon."

tary Dan Meridor, Israel is not
seeking war with Syria, "but will

Military sources said the
targets were some seven kilo-
meters east of Rayak in the
Baalbek area of the Bekaa valley.
According to the Israelis, the
bases were utilized by the Iranian
"Guardians of the Iranian Revol-
ution" and by an allied pro-
Iranian Shiite Moslem group
headed by Hussein Mrussawi
who was said to have been in the
area at the time of the attack.
THE NOV. 16 attack was the
first by Israel since its jets
blasted terrorist bases in Leb-
anon immediately after the Nov.
4 bombing in Tyre which took the
Uves of 29 Israeli service person-
nel and 31 Lebanese. Officials
here suggested that the Israel
Defense Force held off further re-
taliation because it was awaiting
punitive action by the United
States for the deaths of 230 Mar-
ines and sailors in Beirut last
The Americans reportedly had
asked Israel to pinpoint the bases
from which the attacks were
launched. But when the U.S.
failed to act up to now, the Israel
Air Force was ordered to destroy
the bases, officials here said.
They said the Israeli action
was in line with the policy of re-
taliation for any assaults on Is-
raeli personnel in Lebanon and
that such raids would continue as
long as necessary. Military sour-
ces here said that care was taken
to ensure accuracy in the air
strike to avoid harming Syrian
army units deployed close to the
target area.
SENIOR ARMY officers told
Israeli military correspondents
that the IDF did not believe that
Syria is planning an imminent
attack on Israel, though the pos-
sibility could not be ruled out
completely in the future. The of-
ficers seemed to be trying to de-
escalate tension in the region and
play down the recent contention
by some government ministers,
including Deputy Premier David
Levy, that a Syrian attack was
an immediate possibility.
Meanwhile, Israeli aircraft
were reported to have flown re-
connaissance missions over the
Beirut area and further north,
over Tripoli where Palestine Lib-
eration Organization dissidents
backed by Syria and Lybia were
said to have overrun the last
stronghold of PLO chief Yasir
Arafat in the Badawi refugee

Israel Clearly Delighted
That French Have Retaliated
Israeli officials were
clearly delighted by news
that French carrier based
aircraft struck terrorist po-
sitions in Lebanon last
week. But their satisfaction
was muted and the govern-
ment, officially, said
rnvately, however, govern-
ment sources noted that the
French air strike had a direct im-
pact on Shiite Moslem terrorists
and sent an unmistakable signal
to Syria. The Israelis regard
these particular terrorists as an
especially dangerous group.
Hitting them "will literally save
lives in the future," the sou
said, indicating that It
regards the French attack
both punitive and preemptive.

The deal started to take shape
1981 when world oil markets
;re beginning to recover from

volution in Iran. The Israelis
previously relied on Iran for
early half their oil requirements.
But the fall of the Shah forced

Israel had already turned to
Mexico and Egypt for 40 percent
and 25 percent of its needs,
respectively; it had a United

reading: "Destination free but

On May 24, the George B.
Sphikas reached the sea lanes off
the Sullom Voe Harbor but was
told that it would not be granted
entry. While further telex
messages were exchanged by the
parties concerned, the ship
steamed around slowly. Finally,
on May 30 it was told to leave the
area, with its tanks still empty.
. IN REFUSING to load her,
the British oil authorities were
following guidelines first issued
on January 31 by the then
Energy Secretary, Tony Benn.
At the time, Benn had been
asked in Parliament how he was
dealing with the threat to oil
supplies caused by the cessation
of Iranian exports. He replied:
"The Government will expect oil
companies exporting North Sea
crude to do so in the markets of
our partners in the International
Energy Agency and in the
European Community. This
expectation in no way cuts across
the maintenance, to the extent
possible, of any existing patterns
of trade outside those regions."
Although Benn had not named
Israel, he had effectively ex-
cluded it because Israel was not a
member of either of the organiza-
tions he mentioned and was not
an existing customer. He did not
exclude Finland which, although
belonging to neither the IEA nor
EEC, was an existing customer.
Ironically, although this ruling
was issued to deal with an inter-
national oil shortage, it was to
remain the basis of British oil
export policy even though the oil
market has since been tran-
sformed from famine to feast.
THE POLICY was restated as
recently as last month when the
question was raised at a London
meeting between Peter Waker,
the present Energy Secretary,
and his Israeli counterpart,
Yitzhak Modai.
Birith officials strongly deny
that it is intended to discriminate
against Israel, pointing out that
although other countries are
affected by it only Israel con-
tinues to protest publicly. They
also point out that Britain sells
Israel coal.
Benn told this correspondent
that he was aware, when first an-
nouncing the guidelines four
years ago, that Israel would be
excluded but he had first
ascertained that the U.S. had
guaranteed Israel's oil supplies.
Despite British assurances, Is-
rael's oil purchasing agents
believe that the elaborate formula
for refusing to supply Israel is
intended to protect major British
oil companies with stakes in the
Arab world, primarily British

Friday, December;
Assad Must Meet Rumsfeld
Syria's President Hafez Assad has had
an appendectomy, says one report. Assad
has had a heart attack, says a second
report. But one fact is certain: He has
managed, thus far, to elude President
Reagan's special envoy, Donald Rumsfeld.
He has not had to stare the envoy straight
in the eye and say no to him. This was
certainly the case in the past, and Assad
felt no compunctions about doing just that.
Why the difference?
One reason may be that, despite all the
Soviet beefing up of his forces and Assad's
frank assertion that Lebanon must
ultimately become Syria's, international
pressure against all this posturing and war-
maneuvering of his is apparently growing
that even he feels.
The terrorist bombings of the U.S.
Marine compound in Beirut, followed by
the terrorist bombing of the Israeli com-
mand post in Tyre, are likely to have
caused Assad to pause for some second
thoughts about his overbearing position.
Not the least of the inspiration to be a
mite more temperate can be traced to the
retaliatorv strikes by the Israelis, three
times as of the beginning of the week, and
the French for the terrorist bombings.
However much Syria may plead its in-
nocence of these atrocities, it is hardly
likely that such pleas can be taken on their
face entirely, especially at a time when
Assad is backing the war of annihilation
against Yasir Arafat in Tripoli.
So that Assad knows that he is being
called to account, and will continue to be
called to account for his posturing in
Lebanon if not by the French again, then
certainly by the Israelis again and again, as
Defense Minister Moshe Arena vowed
Sunday following reports of the third
Israeli strike, which was the second within
less than a week's time.
Whether or not the United States does
more than merely permit its planes to fly
reconnaissance over Beirut, the pressure is
nevertheless on. Assad is sure to un-
derstand that he can not interminably hide
behind his appendectomy-heart attack,
whichever it may be. At some one point, he
must see Rumsfeld and say something that
makes sense.

What exactly can the
United States do to help Is-
rael help herself get out of
her current economic diffi-
culties? There are some
very specific steps which
the Reagan Administration
might accept beyond the
appropriation of additional
economic and military
Israeli officials, over the past
two years, have been pushing the
concept of a free trade area be-
tween the United States and Is-
rael. That would remove all trade
barriers between the two coun-
tries. Israeli officials are con-
fident that such a step would help
to promote Israeli exports to the
United States. That, in turn,
would go a long way in narrowing
the negative trade balance which
Israel has with America.
In 1982, for example, the
United States exported some $2.3
billion worth of products to
Israel. Trade in the opposite di-
rection came to $1.2 billion. For
the first seven months of this
year, Israeli exports to the U.S.
totaled some $768 million as
opposed to $1.1 billion in U.S.
exports to Israel.
BUT THE concept of a U.S.-
Israeli free trade area is still
problematic because it would
be a "first" for the United States.
Over the years, the thrust of U.S.
trade policy has been to develop
"moat favored nation" trade
agreement with various coun-
tries. That means that the U.S.
treats these MFN countries
equally as far as customs, duties
and tariffs are concerned.
But a free trade area between
the U.S. and Israel would elevate
Israel into an even more favored
category. That, in turn, would
put pressure on the U.S. to
extend similar treatment to other
countries, as well.
In the Reagan Administration,
there is some support for moving
in that direction on a worldwide
basis, given the basic "free
trade" orientation of most senior
policymakers. "They are free
traders," said Dan Halperin, the
Israeli Embassy's dynamic
Economic Minister.
But in the real world of Wash-
ington politics, he recalled,
things are never all that simple.
Remember, these talks with
Israel already have been under-
way for over two years long
before former Finance Minister
Yoram Aridor made his ill-fated
proposal for the "dollarization"
of the Israeli economy.
IN SHORT, there are all sorts
of domestic American industries
which are strongly resisting any
such opening of the U.S. market
to foreign competition whether
it be from Israel, Japan or any-
where else. In the process, they
are raising the spectre of even
more serious American unem-
ployment. Their lobbying has
been intense.
On the opposite side are the
free traders who recognize that
American consumers will benefit
from lower cost imported goods
if they are at the same or even
of higher quality than their
American made competition.
In the U.S. defense industry,
the competition has been very
wen. Most U.S. firms are de-
termined to prevent any serious
foreign inroads in the lucrative
Israel, like other Western al-
lies, including Britain, France,
West Germany and Italy, has
bean very actively seeking to
obtain some of those contracts.
There have been som successes,
but progress has been much
slower than most Israeli officials
would have liked.
AS AN immediate outgrowth
of the Israeli-Egyptian Peace
Treaty, then Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman and Defense Sec-
retary Harold Brown signed a
March, 1979 Memorandum of
Agreement designed to make Is-
rael's entry into the U.S. defense
market somewhat easier. Israel
had sought the same access
afforded to other Western allies.
The Pentagon, as a result of that
agreement, was finally author-
ized to make purchases from Is-
raeli defense contractors.
But there have been manv
snags along the way. What Hal-
perin and other senior Israeli offi-
cials would very much like to see
happen now is a faster pace in
concluding deals involving Israeli
defense companies, especially in
areas of high technology where
Israel has achieved some
dramatic openings through its
own combat experience.
The Israeli electronics :om-
pany, Tadiran, for example re-
cently won a $40 million contract
with the U.S. military for the sale
of advanced radio and communi-
cations equipment. In the
process, it beat the price of E-
Systems of Texas by some 20 per
cent. What exactly did that
With the exception of E-Sys-
tems, everyone won. Tadiran ob-
tained the contract; for Israel,
that represented a sizeable inflow
of foreign currency. For the U.S.
Army, there was a lower price for
a similar quality product; that, in
turn, means a saving to Ameri-
can taxpayers.
There is also another impor-
tant benefit for both Israel and
America from these direct sales.
They make Israel less dependent
on U.S. foreign aid. For every
dollar that Israel can earn
through sales in the U.S. there is
less need for direct cash assis-
tance through the worldwide for-
eign aid legislation recommended
by the Administration and
enacted into law by Congress
whether they be grants or loans.
Israel's battle-tested products,
moreover, have prov to be of
good quality.
E SYSTEMS, by the way. was
not exactly a good loser. In its
latest finanical statement, it ac-
knowledged that it had lost the
contract to the Israeli firm. But it
did not cite Tadiran's 20 per cent
lower cost. Instead, it charged
that the U.S. Government was,
promoting Israeli defense exports
for political purposes. The impli-
cation was clear to E-Systems
stockholders: complain to wJ
ington about this foreign cor
tition which is supposedly m
ladiran has complained to
Systems about the alletati
which also clearly implied
the Tadiran product was not
good as that of E-Systems.
A free trade area and increas
Israeli defense exports to th.
United States Halperin J
were rea ly the hope of the futun
for Israel s embattled economy.
He insisted that Israel wast
giving any serious thought
proposals that it seek
moratorium on repayment ofoj
standing U.S. loans. In practk
terms, that was simply out oft
question. For one thing
pointed out, the U.S. budget,
process alone makes that cou
of action a non-starter.
ISRAEL, which has never del
faulted on any outstanding I
currently owes the U.S. abo>
billion in loans, mostly exL
since the 1973 Yom Kippur'
But for the U.S. to forget a
those loans, the Congress wo.
first have to pass legislation i
propriating every outa
loan dollar in a new
Thus, if the entire Israeli
were to be waived, Con^.
would have to pass an $8 bill
budget allocation, and the Pr
dent would have to sign that i
law. In the process, Israel's in
national credit rating wo
From Israel's own point
view, therefore, Israel is sir
better off letting the Cor
pass additional aid grants to!
repay earlier debts. It would hav
the same effect without the pod
ical costs.
The $910 million in economic I
grants expected to win approval I
in the pending foreign aid legisli-1
tion for Israel will not even fully I
cover the more than $1 billion [
loans which Israel is duetorepij|
the U.S. this year.
Aridor's plan to dollarize tkl
economy intrigued many US of-1
ficials, although they suspected]
that it was politically unrealistic.
They are now waiting to see whit
his successor, Yigal Cohen-1
Orgad, comes up with.
BUT ONE thing is clear: there I
is considerable good will in
Washington, both in the Admin-
istration as well as in Congress]
The American Government
wants to help. U.S. officials
have warmly welcomed the
painful austerity steps Israel ha
just taken. The Americans al-
ways like to help th >se who fint|

Day School Vignettes
In August, our family left
Baltimore, Maryland to resettle
in Boca Raton. I prepared myself
mentally for extreme loneliness
since my husband had to remain
behind in his teaching position as

Assistant Professor both at
Johns Hopkins as well as Chief of
the E.N.T. Department at Sinai
Hospital. By the time he joined
us and opened his practice in
Delray in mid-September, the
children and I were on our way to
being very well adjusted. Other
than an acute attack of "Oriole
Melancholy" (the 1983 World
Series Champions!), I attribute
this swift, comfortable feeling to
two things.
The first being the nature of
Boca Raton a continuously
growing town, welcoming new-
comers from around the world
everyday. However, more im-
portantly, there is a place where
Jewish families gather daily that
has been pivotal in making me
feel that this is my home physi-
cally, socially and spiritually
Every morning, I bring my
children to school and I stay for
the double flag raising ceremony
(American and Israeli flags).
After that parents are invited to
attend morning minyan, which
lasts about 15 minutes. Fol-
lowing the prayers, bagels and
coffee are served and people
either stay to chat or they rush
off to work. It was that extra half
hour in my daily schedule for
about three weeks which opened
up a very positive view of my new
life in Florida.
It occurred to me that this was
"The Unofficial Underground
Agency" of Boca whose job was
to settle Jewish immigrants. I
was invited immediately to
attend welcome meetings for the
synagogues, Hadassah, Federa-
tion. National Council of Jewish
Women, and ORT. I tapped the
resources of my new minyan
buddies to find out where to take
aerobic dance and piano lessons,
where to find a pediatrician,
where to sign my son up for the
soccer league, where to gel my
hair cut, and how to locate a
Kosher Chicken!
It was at the Jewish Com-
munity Day School that I met
other recent arrivals to Boca with
whom I had a lot in common.
Lucille Scherenzel, who came
here last year from Paris, France
told me that she has a number of
French friends in town with
whom she enjoys the chance to
speak in her native tongue.
However, when she has feelings
that need to be shared, she seeks
out her friends from the Day
School, although she may
stumble over the English. "You
belong to the same family and

Patty Kaufman moved to Boca

She came with her two children
while her husband remained up
North for an extra three months
closing up his business. She was
quick to volunteer, "1 never went
through the depression I ex-
pected. The Day School has
provided me with friends who I
consider close, within a very
short time." Patty has also
joined a very successful Hebrew
Ulpan course, meeting once a
week for the Day School parents.

Hebrew studies.
Leah Bregman, originally from
Spain, but in Boca for the last 15
months, told me, "We were
always looking for a school like
this. We want our children to feel
their heritage. When the claw

cient to take away the "new kid
on the block jitters." This calm
which settles over the new
parents, is quickly interpreted by
their children, allowing the
"Happy Mom-Happy Child
Cycle to start rolling.
I am sure that I still have a
vast amount to learn about my
new community. But, the most
important step has been taken -
that is, making friends, because
otherwise, Boca Raton would be
just another spot on the map.

terrorists. John Silken will act as the opposition
spokesman on defense.
ACCORDING TO the British office of the World

President Chaim Herzog of
Israel has warned that the
growing military power of
Syria creates "a very dan-
gerous situation." He said
that the Soviet military
build-up of Syria poses a
threat not only to Israel
and Lebanon but to Jordan
as well.
Addressing the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations at a
meeting at the Regency Hotel
here, Herzog, on a 10-day viait to
the U.S., said that as a result of
the massive arms supply to Syria
in the last year "The Syrian army
became one of the largest armies
of the world," with some 4,000
tanks at its disposal.
HERZOG ALSO said that
there is in Syria "the only Soviet
fighting unit outside the Soviet
bloc" and the Syrians are
equipped with the sophisticated
Soviet made SAM-5 missiles.
Regarding the downfall of
Yasir Arafat, leader of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization,
Herzog said he was asked by
some people if he is not sad to see
this "moderate" leader disap-
pear. "No. I am not sorry to see
Arafat go," the President said,
noting that Arafat was a "mur-
derer" who sought the destruc-
tion of Israel.
He added that it is hoped that
the Palestinian people will "wake
up" to the new realities in the
Mideast and will open a dialogue
with Israel.
HERZOG WAS guest of honor
at a reception given by Naphtali
Lavie, Israel's Consul General in
New York last week. The recep-
tion, at La vie's residence, was
attended by diplomats, Jewish
leaders and representatives of the
Coatinued from Page 1
He stated that Jews can
contribute to prevent a global
disaster and to provide guidance
toward peace because "we have a
secret; that secret is our
memory" of what has happened
before. But that memory carries
with it a responsibility to
transmit it as a guide toward a
sane world. And this, he said, in
turn, requires a deepening of
Jewishness, otherwise that
memory becomes lost. The
continuity and transmission of
this memory is in essence what
the CJF General Assemblies are
all about, Wiesel declared.

dents Conference, Herzog flew to

^Marshall Was Afraid
But Ben-Gurion Read Israel's
Declaration of Independence
When I went in 1948 to
inspect the damage done by
the Egyptian bombing
which marked the opening
of the Arab war on the new
State, I remember thinking
that if we were now res-
ponsible for our destiny,
the rational question will be
whether in a few days or a
few weeks we would have a
destiny to shape. For we
had no planes to match
their planes, no artillery, no
tanks. Yet none of us at the
time had any doubt about
the outcome.
A few days earlier, I had re-
ceived an urgent message from
Gen. George Marshall. He was
United States Secretary of State
at the time, and he urged me des-
perately not to go ahead on May
14, 1948 with my declared inten-
tion of proclaiming independence.
I had had similar messages from
several other governments and
distinguished individuals, some
friends, some not so friendly.
MARSHALL WAS a friend,
but because he thought we would
be quickly destroyed by the over-
whelmingly superior forces of the
Arab States. He begged me to
wait for a more favorable political
Yet Marshall could not know
what we knew what we felt in

tenth anniversary of his death is currently being
marked throughout the world Jewish community.
our very bones: that this was our
historic hour. If we did not live
up to it, through fear or weakness
of spirit, it might be generations
or even centuries before our
people were given another
historic opportunity, if indeed we
would be alive as a national
group. However grave might be
the repercussions of the decision
to declare our independence, 1
knew that the future would be
infinitely worse for my people if
we did not do so.
We decided to go ahead and
proclaim our independence as
planned. Let me add that there
was absolute unanimity among
all my colleagues in the 13-
member National Administration
(the body which became the
Provisional Government of Israel
the moment the Proclamation
had been read and signed).
I remember that these
thoughts were in my mind when,
on my way home from the late
afternoon Independence Day
ceremony, I watched the people
dancing in the streets, cele-
brating the historic act to which
we had all put our hand. I did not
dance with them, though I felt
with them the emotion of the
moment. It was something to see
the sheer joy on their faces,
the light in their eyes, the
exuberance of their movements,
all caught in a surge of ecstasy.
THEY WERE right to dance, I
thought, even though I was all
too aware, as many of the dancers
must have been aware, of the
dangers that faced us and the
sacrifice we would suffer in
defending the statehood we had
just gained.
It had been the same, I
reflected, some five and a half
months earlier when on
November 29, 1947, the United
Nations passed their Parti-
cipation resolution calling for the
end of the Mandate over
Palestine and the establishment
of independent Arab and Jewish
States. I returned to Jerusalem
to find the streets alive with
rejoicing and celebration. I
rejoiced, too, but I was much
concerned with the morrow; the
attacks did in fact come the next

time difference it reached New

House. Under Truman's guidance, the United States became
the first nation officially to recognize Ben-Gurion's declaration
of independence and the integrity of Israel as a new-born State
among the countries of the world.
enormous superiority of arms.
But I also knew what Marshall
did not know, that our will would
prove stronger, not because we
were more militaristic than the
Arabs, but because we would be
fighting for a cause and also
because defeat for us would mean
national destruction. For the
armies of the neighboring Arab
States, it was largely a battle for
spoils. Failure for them would not
mean the loss of their countries,
nor an end to their existence as
national entities.
GoldaMeir Recalls
Life of Unbroken Achievement
There are two categories
of people: one type of per-
son for whom no speeches,
articles or endless words
will be of any help, or add a
single deed to those they
performed in their lives.
But there is a second cate-
gory: men whose lives have
been one unbroken chain of
action and achievement.
In the face of such deeds, what
value is there to the words that
come to describe them? I imagine
that all trying in the next few
weeks to say something about
David Ben-Gurion will be faced
by the same dilemma.
Others like myself were lucky
to have had the opportunity of
not only following Ben-Gurion's
actions. Indeed many of those
who watched his endeavors know
them, sense them, lived them.
But I had a special privilege,
together with others: to be close
to Ben-Gurion for a long period,
personally to see his great and
fundamental achievements.
I WAS sufficiently close in
Golda Meir was herself a Prime Minister of Israel in
fact, at a most critical time in Israel's history, when on
Yom Kippur morning in 1973, Egypt launched an attack
and crossed the Suez Canal into the Sinai Peninsula, then
occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War of 1967. This ar-
ticle was delivered by Mrs. Meir as an address on the oc-
casion of David Ben-Gurion's 85th birthday.
order to learn much. I will not
enumerate all the aspects, but a
few of them, it seems to me, have
become the general heritage of
our movement and of the nation
as a whole.
When Ben-Gurion, together
with his few comrades, set out to
achieve the impossible, they did
not choose the easy way. It seems
to me that it was a characteristic
trait of Ben-Gurion not to adopt a
decision to do something because
it was easy, because it involved
no hazard. This is one of the
things that he taught all of us, at
least this is what I learned from
him: for the Almighty's sake, no
It was customary to say super-
ficially of Ben-Gurion that he
regarded public opinion and
foreigners with contempt. To my
mind, that was not the case. I
never heard from Ben-Gurion

listeners heard the crump ot a
bomb landing near the im-
provised Tel Aviv studio from an
Egyptian bomber.
AS SOON as I finished my
broadcast, I went to inspect the
bomb damage, knowing in my
heart that no one outside Israel
could possibly feel as we did, that
we had to seize the historic
moment and that despite the
odds we would win. It is probably
Clausewitz who talked of the
conflict of wills in warfare: the
stronger of the two wills wins.
I knew, with Marshall, that we
would be vastly outnumbered,
and that we. would face an
It is also true, as Marshall
indicated, that we had only a
partisan force to fling against the
regular armies of the Arab states.
that we have no link with the
outside world and nothing to
learn from it. Ben-Gurion's doc-
trine was that the world exists,
and we have to do all in our power
to win its understanding, its
sympathy. For, in the final
analysis, the attitude of people
from the outside, of foreign
countries and movements, will be
influenced not only by our words,
not only our explanations, our
capacity and effort to explain the
justice of our cause. It is the
deeds we perform for the people
of Israel that will be decisive.
ONE SHABBAT, towards
evening, at the end of 1947, per-
haps early in 1948. Ben-Gurion
called me on the telephone:
"Come, I want to chat with you
about something." Generally
speaking, such telephone calls for
a chat were quite rare. Naturally,
I went to see him. I ascended the
two floors to his home on Sderot
Keren Kayemet. The electric
light had not yet been switched
on. It was twilight.
Ben-Gurion was walking up
and down in his big room saying:
"What's going to happen? There
is going to be a war. Now I know
our defense strength, what we
have, and much more what we
don't have. AU the Arab armies
will bee us. What will be?"
It was, perhaps, the first time I
ever saw him so troubled by the
burden of responsibility. And

then he mentioned the name of a ?
person who we all know was
afraid. Ben-Gurion told me two
things: that person does not yet
know how much one needs to be
afraid. And he said something
else: You should know, one re-
quires much courage to be afraid.
I ALSO remember that when
We were members of the Jewish
Agency Executive, he suddenly
announced and when Ben-
Gurion makes an announcement,
that's it! that he was dropping
all routine matters and intended
[ to study right through to the end
all about the Hagana, its
I strength, what it has, who are its
people, what they do, how they
are trained everything. He
knew what we were heading for.
I remember that in August,
1946, after the Black Sabbath
(when all the leaders of the
Jewish institutions were arrested
by the British), Ben-Gurion re-
mained in Europe. It was a
miracle that he agreed to our
plea: remain there, if you come
here you will only enlarge the
population in detention at
Latrun. Stay away, and you can
do something. When he did
return, and we drove to the
Agency Executive session, he
said with such a surety and such
a clarity, almost specifying the
date there will be a war. He
had given the word a year before-
hand to a group of Jews in Amer-
ica. He told them in three years'
time there would be war, and
listed what we needed in order to
be prepared for it.
I saw him on that Shabbat,
and, perhaps for the first time, I
understood that one must not
regard with contempt those men
who are afraid. Each of us, in
certain situations, is a bit afraid.
I want to say that I learned to
respect many who admit that
they have fear in their hearts, at
any rate those men who have fear
in their hearts and overcome it
and despite that fear do what is
necessary in my eyes that is
what makes them important peo-

On that evening, when Ben-
Gurion told me that one requires
much courage to be afraid when
there is something to be nfrW r.f
it was the first time I heard it put
that way by Ben-Gurion himself.
BEN-GURION told me more
than once, the same night, in the
year 1947, of the UN Assembly
vote for partition, that he did not
rejoice. He did not rejoice be-
cause he did not see it as the end
of something. And that was cor-
rect. For I wish to say that Ben-
Gurion was never a plasterer.
That trade was not his. Perhaps a
quarrier, hewer of stone, but
never one to plaster over. There
was never the element of letting
things slide.
So it was when we decided on
Aliyah Beth (illegal immigra-
tion), or when we resolved to
break the 1930 White Paper
policy (of restricted immigra-
tion) ; when we set out by night to
establish outposts; when we
engaged in our struggle against
the British; when we decided on
two things ostensibly contradic-
tory to go to war, to volunteer
for the British army in the war
against Hitler; and, at the same
time, to resolve to fight the
British as if there were no war in

A new stamp of the Jewish National Fund in Jerusalem was
issued in mid-November to commemorate the tenth anniversary
of the passing of David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime
Minister and Minister of Defense. The new stamp, bearing a
portrait of Ben-Gurion drawn by Oswald Adler, is colored ochre
and brown and issued in sheets of 22 stamps with three dif-
ferent tabs. Two variations of the stamp are being issued: one
without nominal value and the other with a face value of 10

our conclusion was unanimous

Bronfman Visits in Spain
Edgar Bronfman, president of
the World Jewish Congress,
arrived in Madrid for a two-day
visit with Spain's Jewish com-
munity and political leaders, the
WJC reported here. It is the first
meeting on Spanish soil between
a WJC president and the head of
government since the beginning
of the Franco era almost 50 years
Bronfman was invited to pay
an official visit to Spain by Prime
Minister Felipe Gonzalez when
they met in New York last June
during the Prime Minister's state
visit to the U.S. At the same
time, Samuel Toledano, president
of the Federation De Comunida-
des Israelites de Espana, the cen-
tral representative body of
Spanish Jewry, extended an in-
vitation to the WJC president to
address the body.
