No Guarantees
Outrage Continues Over
UN Flags for Arafat
- Israel has again con-
demned the United Na-
tions' decision to provide
safe conduct for PLO leader
Yasir Arafat and his men to
leave the embattled city of
Tripoli under a UN flag and
said it would not give a
guarantee of safe passage
to the terrorists.
Asked if Israel would prevent
Arafat and his 4,000 men from
leaving, Cabinet Secretary Dan
Meridor told reporters, "Israel is
not going to answer that ques-
tion." Speaking after a Cabinet
meeting, Meridor said Greece had
asked for security guarantees for
its ships evacuating the Palestin-
ians, but Israel would not provide
such guarantees.
THE ISRAELI government
last week asked UN Secretary
General Javier Perez de Cuellar
to cancel any arrangement that
may have been made to give
Arafat and his men safe conduct
from Tripoli under the UN flag.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir said
"it is inconceivable" that the UN
"should provide the terrorists
with any assistance or facilities
whatsoever" in light of the "hor-
rendous crime perpetrated by
Arafat's terrorists" in Jerusalem
last Tuesday.
Four people were killed, and 36
were injured in a bus bomb blast.
Claims of responsibility for the
tragedy emanated from both the
faction supporting Arafat and
PLO dissidents who have been
battling Arafat loyalists in
northern Lebanon. Shortly after
the disaster, Shamir declared:
"Our hands will reach the mur-
derers and we shall strike them
until this wickedness disappears
from the face of the earth."
Grenade Rocks Jerusalem
Israel army series 26 grenade ex-
ploded on Saladin Street, East
Jerusalem's main shopping cen-
ler, causing no casualties or dam-
agc. Hut the incident served to
intensify an ongoing police in-
wstigation prompted by the dis-
covery of five booby-trapped
hand grenades near Arab and
Christian religious institutions
over the weekend.
The grenades were found on
Ml. Zion. Beit Tzfafa and on
Saladin Street. Another was
found in the Jewish quarter. An
anonymous telephone caller,
claiming to be a spokesman for
an organization called "Terror
Against Terror," told the Army
Radio station Friday that his
group was responsible for the
grenades on Mt. Zion and Beit
Later, a shop was set afire in the
Christian quarter of the city. Pol-
ice admit they are in the dark as
to the perpetrators. One guess is
that Jewish extremists are res-
ponsible, but Arab provocation is
not ruled out.
Begin Finally Goes Home
JERUSALEM (JTA) After 102 days of self-
imposed isolation, former Premier Menachem Begin
quietly moved from his official residence to his new home
Saturday night in an almost clandestine operation.
Begin was driven from the Prime Minister's home in a
limousine after dark. Only a few passersby and several
photographers witnessed the move. Photographs of Begin
published in Yediot Achronot showed him clean-shaven,
indicating that the skin ailment which plagued him has
improved. _______^^^

Hussein States Basis
For Peace Pow-Wow
Rev. Orautl
(JTA) King Hussein of
Jordan has reiterated that
his conditions for negotia-
tions with Israel continue
to be "Palestinian partici-
pation and support," ap-
proval of other Arab states
and the prospect that the
talks "will get somewhere."
Hussein, who was asked on
ABC-TVs "This Week with
David Brinkley" about the Is-
raeli Cabinet declaration that it is
time for him to join the peace
talks, made clear he also needs
the approval of the Palestine
Liberation Organization led by
Yasir Arafat.
"We will continue to do busi-
ness with the PLO which
represents the people of Pales-
tine, their hopes and
aspirations," he said. Asked
which PLO, he replied "The PLO
that is recognized over the
years." He ruled out the Syrian-
backed group that has been
fighting Arafat's loyalists in
Tripoli "Any organization that
is subservient to the will or
policies of any Arab state or any
force in this world is not anyone
that we would recognize," he
removal as head of the PLO
would help the peace process, the
King replied, "No I do not believe
it would." Hussein warned that if
the Israelis try to prevent Arafat
and 4.000 of his terrorists from
leaving Tripoli aboard Greek
ships it would be a "terrible
disaster and a very tragic crime."
Yehuda Blum, Israel's Ambas-
sador to the United Nations,
appearing on CBS-TV's "Face
the Nation," would not say
whether Israel would try to
prevent Arafat's departure to
North Africa. Blum would only
restate Israel's ODDosition to the
King Hussein
use of a UN flag on the ships
transporting the PLO. "It is
preposterous and inconceivable
that the United Nations should
be placed at the disposal of a
terrorist organization," he said.
He said it could not be con-
sidered a humanitarian act since
it was "preposterous to associate
Arafat with humanitarianism.
After all it was Arafat who last
week took responsibility for
bombing the civilian bus in Jeru-
salem." UN Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar said that
the authorization of the use of the
UN flag to provide safe conduct
for Arafat and his men "was on
purely humanitarian grounds."
HUSSEIN, who was in-
terviewed from Amman, said the
conditions in the Mideast are
very dangerous with the threat of
a superpower confrontation.
While declaring that Jordan has
always been "committed to the
cause of establishing a just and
durable peace," he said he saw no
signs of Israeli moves towards
"So far, I haven't seen any
Israeli action that would indicate
that Israel is willing to change its
policies and approach," he said.
He charged that instead Israel is
committed to establishing "facts
and obstacles" through its settle-
ment policy on the West Bank.
Hussein maintained that UN
Security Council Resolution 242
is a basis for Mideast peace which
he said would be a full peace in
exchange for full Israeli with-
drawal from the occupied
territories. But while calling the
Israeli settlements "illegal," he
would not say whether a peace
agreement would require their
removal. He only said the settle-
ments would a major issue in the

gle though they still criticize his
stress on diplomacy.
Meanwhile, a new curfew was
clamped on downtown Nablus
after a grenade was thrown at an
Israeli border patrol. The m .,
did not explode. A Molo.
tad waa thrown at a mil?'
vehicle at the Askar ^
camp near Nablus. There ITS
casualties or damage. "
Doctors are fighting to
save the lives of victims of
the bomb blast which de-
stroyed a crowded Jerusa-
lem bus killing four persons
and injuring 46.
The dead are Nurit Pol-
lack, 14; Eti Adi, 11;
Yehuda Kaplan, 77; and
Lasslo B. Danisky, 50, all
of Jerusalem.
Among the injured, 28 are still
undergoing treatment at the
Shaare Zedek Hospital and Had
assah Hospital's Ein Kerem
facility, the hospitals nearest the
scene of the explosion. Ten are
reported to be badly hurt, and
one is listed in critical condition.
According to hospital sources,
the most serious problems are
burns, multiple cuts, eye injuries
and respiratory damage. Nearly
all of the victims suffered hearing
problems, and many have pun-
ctured eardrums due to the inten-
sity of the blast. The bus was
reduced to a charred skeleton.
POLICE investigating the
outrage. .iave rounded up
suspects for questioning. All but
four have been released. The Pal-
estine Liberation Organization
has claimed credit for the car-
nage. The claims have come from
both the faction supporting PLO
chief Yasir Arafat and PLO dissi-
dents who have been battling the
Arafat loyalists in northern Leb-
Fifth Victim Reported Dead
JERUSALEM (JTA) Esther Pollack, 16, one of
the 46 people injured in last Tuesday's bus bomb last,
died of her injuries over the weekend, thus bringing the
death toll to five. Her sister, Nurit Pollack, 14, was one of
the four killed when the bus exploded. The other three
killed were Eti Adi, 11, Yehuda Kaplan, 77, and Lasslo B.
Danisky, 50. All were from Jerusalem.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has
lashed out at the PLO and vowed
that the deaths and injuries
would be avenged. Winding up a
political debate in the Knesset,
Shamir declared: "Our hand will
reach the murderers, and we shall
strike them until this wickedness
disappears from the face of the
earth." He said it was regrettable
that some still call Arafat a
"moderate," adding that Israel
was under no illusions and knows
well that its enemies are filled
with hatred and lust for murder.
The bus bombing shocked the
country because of the large
number of victims and the sight
of mangled bodies and also
because Jerusalem has been rela-
tively free of terrorist acts in
recent years. This was the worst
since 1979 in terms of deaths and
MAYOR Teddy Kollek warned
that this latest incident must not
lead to a deterioration in relations
between Jews and Arabs in the
city. He recalled, on a Voice of Is-
rael Radio interview, that there
have been many outrages of this
was no way to prevent them. But
he ruled out any restrictions on
the freedom of movement of
"The moment you limit the
movement of Arabs on buses it
will become more dangerous,"
Kollek said. "Would you ask
everybody who boards a bus
whether he is an Arab or not?
Can you check it? It*s an impos-
sibility." The Mayor also warned
against acts of reprisal on local
Arabs, especially because many
such terrorist attacks in the past
were the work of outsiders.
The local media noted that
there was complacency among
the populace which is not as alert
as it once was to suspicious-
looking objects on buses and in
the streets. The feeling has been
that the PLO has o'. recovered
from the blows it si stained in the
Lebanon war and is too preoccu-
pied with internal strife to engage
in terrorist activities inside Isra-

terrorist organizations have

The Jewish Fhridian of South County
Shamir Explains
New Agreement Focuses on Syria
I Premier Yitzhak Shamir
Lid the Knesset's Foreign
[Affairs and Security Com-
Imittee that there was a
significant difference be-
tween the U.S.-Israel
agreements reached during
his talks with President
Reagan in Washington and
the memorandum of under-
standing for strategic co-
operation the U.S. and Is-
rael intitialed in 1981 which
never became operative.
The discussions in Washington
revolved around means to deter
Syria, not the Soviet Union, and
in that respect differed from the
memorandum of two years ago,
Shamir explained. He assured the
committee that the government
was not concealing any details of
his talks in Washington.
HE SAID the American air
strike against Syrian positions in
Lebanon resulted from the crisis
in that country, not any secret
U.S.-Israeli agreement for joint
military action.
Shamir made those points to
the committee to dispel concern
in some coalition and opposition
circles that the agreements the
Premier and Defense Minister
Moshe Arens reached with the
Reagan Administration may
have drawn Israel into a commit-

Underground Spirit NeededShamir
of the I rgun's de-
mier Yitzhak Shamir told a meet-
ing of veterans of the pre-State
Irgun Zvai Leumi that peace on
Israel's borders would be assured
by a renewal of the old under-
ground fighting spirit. His state-
ment was greeted with un-
abashed enthusiasm. Shamir had
turn a leader of the Stern group
which broke away from the
The meeting marked the 40th
claration of "rebellion" against
the British Mandatory author-
ities. The audience had hoped
that former Premier Menachem
Begin, who led the Irgun, would
appear at their rally, but he failed
to do so. He was in the process of
settling into his new apartment
in Jerusalem after having moved
from the Prime Minister's official
residence earlier in the day.
Shamir took Begins place at the
tnent to undertake military ac-
tions in the furtherance of Amer-
ican rather than purely Israeli
interests in the region.
Charges of U.S.-Israeli collu-
sion aimed against the Soviet
Union were the substance of a
non-confidence motion by the
Hadash (Communist) party in
the Knesset. It was over-
whelmingly defeated. Only the
four Hadash MKs supported the
measure. The Labor Alignment
and Shinui abstained.
Wilner accused the government
of making itself a servant of
American policy and anti-Com-
munist ideology for which it was
"ready to sacrifice tens of
thousands of young Israelis and
to endanger the State of Israel."
Justice Minister Moshe Nissim
replying for the government,
repudiated Wilner's contention
that neither Syria nor the USSR
posed a threat of aggression. He
said it was clear that Syria is
preparing for war and therefore
cooperation with the U.S. should
be welcome.
Nissim stressed that the agree-
ment with the U.S. did not call
for military commitments bv Is-
rael. On the other hand, Israel
and the U.S. have joint interests
in the region and it would be fool-
ish and unacceptable not to take
advantage of this identity of
interests to strengthen Israel and
deter the aggressors, he said.
Labor MK Haim Barlev, a
former Chief of Staff, said the op-
position had no confidence in
either the government's or the
Hadash formulas. Cooperation
between Israel and the U.S. is
very important in areas such as
intelligence, technology, opera-
tional lessons and political co-
ordination. "But joint maneuvers
and exercises of the Israeli army
and the American armed forces"
are not "relevant" to any of the
issues at hand, he said.
LABOR MK Yaacov Tzur,
member of the Knesset Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee,
maintained that if war is the only
way to get the Syrians out of
Lebanon, the government should
not hide this fact from the people.
His Labor colleague, Amnon Lin,
suggested that Syria might agree

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Friday, December 23,1^3
A Closer Look
Arthur Goldberg's call for the creation of
an international juridical commission to
catalogue the losses suffered by former
Jewish inhabitants of Arab countries
deserves a closer look. The former U.S.
diplomat and Supreme Court Justice made
the call while addressing the recently
concluded three-day conference in London
of the world Organization of Jews from
Arab Countries. While Palestinian Arabs
argue of being displaced from their homes,
little international attention is focused on
the flip side of the coin, the displacement of
Jews from their homes in the Middle East.
It is estimated that about 800,000 Jews
lost their homes in Arab countries, which is
roughly the same amount of Arabs
displaced as a result of the Arab-Israeli
conflict. Goldberg says that such a
definitive report by a distinguished panel of
Jewish and non-Jewish jurists, would be
essential if appropriate redress were ever to
be made for the dispossession of the former
Jewish population of the Arab world.
Goldberg has intimate knowledge of the
Middle East dispute since he was one of the
original authors of the United Nations
Security Council Resolution 242 which calls
for a just solution to the refugee problem in
that region. He said Resolution 242 was
phrased in such a manner not only to take
into account the mass Arab flight from
Palestine, but also the Jewish exodus from
Arab lands. It is time that the international
community address this issue with as much
vigor as they seem to address the issue of
Palestinian refugees.

The document attacks him for
distributing "anti-Soviet
literature" and belies claims on
behalf of "the rights of the
Jewish people" with phrases
exposing the way in which these
rights are perverted by the
regime. Citing confiscated
materials which date back nine
years, it implicates other Moscow

Ivan Fyodorovich Martynev, a
non-Jewish Russian scholar,
protested mounting anti-Semitic
propaganda in the Soviet Union
by renouncing his academic title
in an open letter to the Presidium
of the Soviet Academy of
Sciences. An historian who held
the Soviet equivalent of a PhD,
he called on his colleagues to
condemn anti-Semitic publica-
tions and discriminatory prac-
tices against Jewish scientists.
He specifically cited the writings
of Middle East "specialist" Lev
Korneyev, who makes the
preposterous claim that
"Zionists" are responsible for the
Holocaust dead and that the
figure of six million is a gross
exaggeration. Korneyev, he said,
should be expelled from the
scientific community as a

A new law heightens the
double standard applied to Soviet
political prisoners Instituted in
the Russian Republic on October
1, it provides up to five additional
years for those who oppose labor

applicable to all prisoners, the
measure codifies a practice that
has been increasingly employed
against Jewish and human rights
activists in moves reminiscent of
Stalin's time. POC ANATOLY

Defendants charged with
political "crimes" are also
vulnerable to increased haras-
sment. A Nov. 17 report by Radio
Free Europe-Radio Liberty docu-
ments a case in which one dissi-
dent was deliberately denied
counsel of his own choosing while
Soviet legal experts condemned
an inadvertent denial given a
non-political defendant. The
recent trial of POC IOSIF
BEGUN is another example:
prevented from picking his own
lawyer, Begun was serviced by t
court appointed attorney, whose
"help" he had rejected.
Advised by authorities to leave
the Soviet Union or be sent to
prison, Leningrad activist
mediately requested an exit visa
from the local OVIR. A recent
article in the periodical Ogonytk
accused him of "studying and

A revealing interview with
Anti-Zionist Committee Chair-
man David Dragunsky was
conducted by Usamah Da bul. a

attempt to deflect outrage

Friday, Dacamber:
Meet Avraham Nov
Editor*. Note: These stories
bout Yoseftal and Kaplan, two
neighborhoods in Kfar Saba
which the South County Jewish
Federation has been paired with
under Israel's Project Renewal
Program will appear throughout
the upcoming year. Project
Renewal is a joint effort between
the Jews of the Diaspora and the
Israeli Government to help less
fortunate Jews in Israeli society.
Avraham Nov wanders
through people's lives with a
song on his lips and a flute ever
ready in his hand.
Nov's path to heaven, no
doubt, is through his music. Nov,
a mystical figure of alight-build
with a high forehead and deep-set
eyes, teaches music to the chil-
dren of Kfar Saba, specifically
the youth of Yoseftal and Kap-
At both Remez, the secular ele-
mentary school, and Etzion, the
religious elementary school, Nov
reaches the children with the
sound of flutes, drums and key-
boards. His music cuts through
the barriers built by children with
problems. "Even children who
have difficulties in the class want
to play," Rina Sella, Remez prin-
cipal, said in an interview. "He
succeeds," she added. "They play
very good after two months.
They play 15 songs," she added.
"We don't believe it."
Before Nov started teaching
there about two years ago, Ms.
Sella said, the children just sang.
I went with Avraham Nov to
Remez the day before Succos
began. Since this is Israel, a two-
hour teacher strike postponed the
musical festivities until 10 a.m.
But it was Succos. The chil-
dren kept themselves busy
decorating the Succot in the
courtyard. With an American
roaming around with a camera,
the children behaved like any
children in the world. "Tslem oti,
Tslem oti. Tslem oti," the chil-
dren chanted. There was no need
for an interpreter to understand
what these children wanted. The
only thing that made these chil-
dren happy was the click of the
camera. "Rehga. Rehga, Rehga,'
one girl called as I walked by.
'One minute, one minute, one
minutt." she was saying in He-
brew while trying to convince me
to take her photograph.
For two days I traveled with
Avraham, going to the commu-
nity center in Givat Eshkol where
he and his assistant led a mass of
children in playing the flute.
Givat Eshkol is a neighborhood
next to Yoseftal and Kaplan.
After we went to Remez we
traveled to Samaria the West
Bank. The West Bank is not far
from Kfar Saba. In fact, it is
within walking distance.
Before the 1967 Six Day War.
Kfar Saba, specifically Yoseftal
and Kaplan, stood just l'/j miles
from an Arab village which was
then in Jordan.
Traveling with Avraham posed
only one problem. He speaks
little English. I speak less He-
brew. But we were able to com-
municate even without his music.
As we drove to Ariel the
largest settlement in Samaria
Avraham explained the beauty of
Eretz Yisrael. "Arabic," Avra-
ham would say as he pointed off
to the side of the road or some
village off in the distance.
"Jewish," he would later say as
we passed a Jewish settlement or
a grove of trees planted by Jews.
"Arabic, Jewish, Arabic,
Jewish," the words constantly
fell from his lips as we drove
onward. "Brown, Green, Brown,
Green," he would add to explain
what he meant.
The brown, desolate desert
represented what was Arabic.
The green grass and trees showed
what the Jews had done with the
land. This was Avraham's land.
He relished in what the Jewish
settlers had done with the land.
You could see his disdain for
- f~- V^i

4 :. itfa
what the Arabs had not done.
After meeting with new stu-
dents and their Ariel
where he was starting music les-
sons, Avraham and I drove back
to Tel Aviv. The night is color
blind. No longer could you see the
difference between the green and
the brown The drive was peace-
ful. As we drove on often in
silence since our mutual
vocabulary had run out, we could
see the lights from the distant
Not speaking the native lan-
guage is so frustrating. There is
much more to Avraham, but it is
beyond my reach for now. As I
learn to speak Hebrew I will learn
more about this mystical man.
And when I learn more, so will

1 A Rabbi
The following is brought U
\Floridian readers by the South
\County Rabbinical Association
:;// there are topics yofi would likt
lOW Rabbis to -discuss^ please
'^.submit them to the'Floridian.
Rabbi Louis Sacks
Twentieth century man is a lonely creature and our generation
is a lonely one. The sociologist describes it: the psychiatrist
analyzes it: and the teacher of religion must deal with it.
Together, the students of human nature, in our age of "The
Lonely Crowd," agree in the words of the Torah that "it is not
good that man should be alone."
When these words were recorded in the Book of Genesis there
was only one Adam in this world. Today there are one to three
billion people in the world.
In spite of the over-flowing multitude of people, man is lonely
because statistics are not society and as Francis Bacon has
stated "a crowd is not company and faces are but a gallery of
pictures." Man created in the image of God and intended to be
"little short of divine" is dwarfed by existential loneliness as he
is reduced to a statistical number and stripped of his human
The world has through our technological skills been con-
tracted into our neighborhood, yet man is lonely because the
conquest of space does not imply the eradication of mental,
racial, religious, prejudicial barriers nor the lifting of iron
curtains. Men are undoubtedly nearer to each other but not
closer. In our atomic age with the shattering threat of inter-
continental missiles, man trembles in his loneliness.
- Moreover we must be aware that when God said, "it is not
good that man should be alone" he said it about Adam who then
had a paradise all to himself. Wallowing in the luxuries of the
Garden of Eden, and feasting on the fruit that was "delightful to
behold and good to eat."
A lonely paradise can be a depressing hell. Things never take
the place of people or ideals or commitment to God and Torah.
Amidst all the abundance of our materialistic civilization with
its glitter, gaiety, and gadgetry too many of us, also, find
ourselves isullen and lonely, bored and frustrated, despondent
and disillusioned, "tired of livin' and afraid of dyin' ".
In one year Americans spent over 13 billions of dollars on
liquor in an attempt to overcome loneliness but in the realization
that highballs can't cure lonely hearts nor promiscuity drive
away loneliness nor can external remedies heal internal
There" are no panaceas nor miracle drugs nor quick cures in
overcoming loneliness. Nothing short of a radical reorientation
to cope will be effective. "And I wiD give unto you a new heart,
and a new spirit will I place within you ." The lonely heart
must be replaced by a "new heart" a heart palpitating with
love for when love enters loneliness departs. The terrified and
lonely Adam was transformed by love into the courageous father
of the race, the Biblical progenitor of all mankind. .He was no
longer alone there was love within him. For to Adam,
paradise without love was a wasteland and a wasteland with
love became a paradise. Paradise is what it is because love
blooms in it.
"Love thy neighbor as they self." If this were not only pious
preachment but practical performance, then our generation
would not be characterized as "The lonely crowd."
Man need not be alone. Love dispels loneliness. Iden-
tification with our glorious tradition our association with the
spiritual giants spaning 4,000 years Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Joseph, Moses, Aaron, David etc., etc. will banish solitude
and ultimately and most importantly consciousness of the
presence of God one heavenly father provide eternal
May we in our cosmic loneliness be buoyed up by the Psalmist
who, though walking through the valley of the shadow of death,
feared no evil, for God was with him and who from the inner
crevices of his heart and soul proclaimed the comforting words,
" I have set the Lord before me always."
