Saad Haddad, commander of the
Christian militia in south
Lebanon and Israel's long-time
ally, was flown by helicopter to
his home village at Marjayoun
after several days of treatment at
the Rambam Hospital in Haifa.
Haddad was admitted to the
hospital on Dec. 30 suffering
from what his doctors described
as "exhaustion." That was the
condition officially announced on
the frequent occasions in recent
months when Haddad was
hopitalized. According to wide-
spread media reports he is ter-
minally ill with cancer. But no
medical authority has confirmed
His family was at his bedside
throughout his latest confine-
ment at Rambam Hospital. His
only other visitors were a res-
tricted number of Israeli political
and military leaders who have
had close contact with him in
recent years. They represent both
the present Likud government
and its predecessor Labor-led
Haddad had long been branded
a deserter and renegade by the
Lebanese government. When he
assisted Israeli forces in the
occupation of south Lebanon hi
the 1978 Litani campaign, he was
stripped of his rank in the Leba-
nese army. But a special court in
Beirut last week officially
restored his rank and all honors
and seniority as a military officer.
Open House Set For Day School

Community Day School is plan-
ning its annual open house Mon-
day Jan. 23 at 8 p.m.
Prospective parents will have
an opportunity to view the class-
rooms and Burt Lowlicht, Prin-
cipal, will describe the program
and philosphy of the school. A

Plans for the academic year
1984-86 include expansion of the
preschool program and the
formation of new classes in

Adolph and Rose Levis
Adolph and Rose Levis of Del-
Aire have established a fund of
one million dollars toward the
construction of the new Jewish
Community Center facility to be
located on US 441 in Boca Raton.
The Jewish Community Cen-
ter, which is an agency of the
South County Jewish Federation,
will be part of a larger Jewish
Campus encompassing the South
County Jewish Community Day
School, the Jewish Family and
Children'3 Service as well as the
Federation offices. Congregant
housing for the elderly will also
be part of this complex.
Marianne Bobick, President of
the Federation, said, "What is
most inspiring about this million
dollar gift is that no one solicited
Adolph and Rose Levis. Al came
to me with the offer of the million
dollar fund because he knew that
the facility and its services were
greatly needed in the South
County Jewish community. I
know for a fact that all of his
philanthropy is self motivated.
No one has to solicit Al Levis."
Mrs. Bobick continued, "In
gratitude for this most generous
gift the Jewish Community Cen-
ter will be named the Adolph and
Rose Levis Jewish Community
Center. The Levis JCC will oper-
ate on the James and Marjorie
Baer Community Campus on
Spanish River Boulevard begin-
ning in late spring of this year,
until the permanent facilities are
built on U.S. 441."
Al Levis came to South
County originally from Phila-
delphia, where he was an active
campaigner for the Allied Jewish
Appeal. He also built a wing and
medical care facility for the Up-
town Home for the Aged.
Levis is a self-made busi-
nessman. He created and devel-
oped "Slim Jim," the popular
meat snack food which requires
no refrigeration, and is therefore
able to be distributed nationally.
He personally worked in the
smokehouse to develop the
fermentation process to give the
snacks the tangy flavor which
caught the imagination of the
American public. He sold his
business to General Mills in 1967.
Levis attributes his interest in
Federation work to the profound
affect that a National Mission to
Israel in 1969 had upon him.
"That experience leaves me with
an inspired feeling to this very
day. It was a very special,
unforgettable mission for major

Experts Say '84 Will Bring
Suicide Squads Here
NEW YORK Interna-
tional terrorism is likely to
increase, and there is a real
prospect that "kamikaze-
style" bombings like those
at the U.S. Embassies in
Beirut and Kuwait will be
carried out in this country,
experts at an all-day confer-
ence on terrorism have
The day-long meeting, held in
mid-December, was sponsored by
the Institute for Studies in Inter-
national Terrorism of the State
University of New York in asso-
ciation with the American Jewish
Congress, it took place at
Manhattan's Graduate Center of
the City University of New York.
PHIL BAUM, associate exe-
cutive director of AJCongrees
and Co-chairman of the confer-
ence, announced at the meeting
that his organisation will press
for federal legislation that would
enable the U.S. government to
apply "significant sanctions" ag-
ainst countries that support
terrorism or harbor terrorists.
Baum said such proposed
legislation would permit the
government "to act unilaterally if
necessary" in taking such action,
"given the paralysis of the inter-
national community, particularly
the United Nations, in taking ef-
fective action against terrorism."
Participants in the conference
agreed that the failure of the
international community to fully
recognize terrorism as criminal
behavior has encouraged the
growth of terrorist activity in the
last decade. Countries like Libya
and Iran were singled out as
sponsors of terrorism and
responsible for its mushrooming
NEW YORK Sen Daniel
Patrick Moynihan, one of the
participants, warned that terror-
ist-suicide bombings are likely to
3ccur in this country. "I think
the prospect of 1984 being the
vear they bring the war to our

shores is real," he declared. "We
should assume it and not be sur-
prised by it."
SEN. MOYNIHAN asked
rhetorically whether "the inat-
tentiveness of the West, and of
the United States in particular,
to considerations of the law, has
contributed to an international
political climate that allows other
states to assume that they will
not be held accountable to
standards of civilized and peace-
Other participants in the
conference, which included
government officials, media
executives, business leaders and
investigative specialists, joined
Sen. Moynihan in condemning
the view that terrorism, when
linked to a political goal, is some-
how different from other forms of
John Norton Moore, professor
of law at the University of Vir-
ginia Law School, termed such a
view "simple nonsense." He as-
serted that no goal can be used to
justify attacks on civilians. Prof.
Moore said such attacks "are
contrary to international law."
He termed "a myth" the
"romanticized notion" that civil-
ized nations must deal with the
cause of terrorism or define
terrorism before responding to
HE CHARGED that terrorism
does not aim to alleviate political
"There is a struggle for law, for
authority, and it is necessary to
show that terrorism is impermis-
sible," Prof. Moore said.
In a similar vein, Allan Gerson,
special assistant to the U.S. Am-
bassador to the United Nations,
deplored the "subversion of lan-
guage" that enables terrorist
movements to "concentrate on
blurring issues and on system-
atically concealing their true
identity and purposes until, like a
Trojan horse, they are able to
penetrate our defenses." Mis-
conceptions about terrorism, he
said, included the notion that a
rigorous and objective definition
of terrorism is impossible.
"THEY WOULD tell you one
man's terrorist is another man's
freedom fighter," he said.
"Hence, consensus about what is
and is not terrorism is impossible
and we are left suspended in a
kind of intellectual and moral
"A terrorist act occurs,"
Gerson declared, "when the
terrorist, seeking concessions
from a state, international insti-
tution, multinational corporation
or similar body applies violence
against individuals or entities
that have no direct connection to
the dispute." He added that
terrorists are not interested in so-
cial progress and are not
"frustrated idealists" but will
"make alliances with common
criminals and homicidal
Gerson accused the UN of
abetting the "subversion of lan-
guage" associated with terrorism
by providing a vehicle in which
"extremists and terrorists, whose
acts flout the letter and spirit of
the UN charter, find justification
in UN resolutions that endorse
the 'use of all necessary means at
their disposal" to achieve "self-
determination and liberation."
DESPITE THE difficulties of
combatting acts of terrorists,
particularly those prepared to
suffer death in kamikaze-like at-
tacks, the specialists at the
conference agreed that effective
steps can be taken to cope with
the threat. Terrell Arnold, deputy
director of the Office for Combat-
ting Terrorism, U.S. Department
of State, declared that a funda-
mental key to averting terrorist
acts is to "provide a very low
level of success rate."
Emphasis was given by a
number of participants to more
effective high-level intelligence
gathering. International net-
works of shared information to
enable democracies to anticipate
tprrorist attacks were urged by
Professor Moore. He also called
for Western nations to eliminate
statutes of limitations on
terrorist acts and legalize civil
suits for damages brought by
victims against terrorists and
Prof. Moore said that nations
have the right to take action
against other governments
responsible for terrorism.
Possible actions range from
sanctions to military force and
should be proportionate to the
size of the terrorist threat and tc
the damage done by the terror-
ists, he suggested.
SEN. MOYNIHAN cited
economic sanctions and action by
the World Court as two of the al-
ternatives available that would
enable nations to avoid the
extremes of "doing nothing or
going to war" to punish terrorists
and their sponsors.
Inspector Donald Moss, com-
mander of the public security
section of the New York City
Police Department, warned of the
need for a "balanced response" to
terrorism. He said that "crisis
management techniques" already
developed by experienced
security specialists can help
maintain civil liberties and
prevent the destruction of
existing democratic institutions
in the battle against terrorism.
He noted that in recent years,
conspiracy statutes, originally
designed to combat organized
crime, have been used successful-
ly to prosecute terrorists.
Sen. Moynihan echoed the
need to combat terrorists while
maintaining traditional freedoms
and stressed the importance of
better counterinteUigence. Amer-
icans are "just going to have to
learn to do counternteUigence
with terrorist groups more ef-
fectively," he said.
In the face or a growing terror-
ist threat, he advised, "Don't
panic. Don't let yourself be
blackmailed. Don't buy hostages
A SESSION on the mass
media brought some disagree-
ment among representatives of
the media and their critics. Barry
Rosen, former State Department
press attache and a hostage in
Iran three years ago, charged
that by allowing itself to be
manipulated and exploited by the
Iranian terrorists whose "main
purpose was propaganda through
media coverage, the media had
become an involved party and
injected themselves in the nego-
tiations between the U.S. gov-
ernment and the terrorists a
task that should have been left to
"real diplomacy" which can only
be done in a quiet, long-term ne-

Likud MKs in Plea
Call for Freeze on New Settlements in Territories
By JTA Services
Likud MKs presented an urgent
agenda motion in the Knesset
calling for a freeze on new settle-
ments in the occupied territories.
Yitzhak Berman and Dror
Seigerman, members of Likud's
Liberal Party wing, said their
proposal was motivated solely by
the precarious economic situation
and the need to drastically reduce
Berman and Siegerman are
regarded as mavericks who often
deviate from the Likud party
line. Seigerman said that unless
the Knesset presidium agrees to a
debate on their motion, it would
be presented as a regular bill. He
said he was confident that a
majority ot the Knesset would
support such a bill.
The controversial issue is
surfacing at a time of growing
concern in Likud circles over a
possible coalition crisis. Rumors
a week ago that Finance Minister
Yigal Cohen-Orgad was consider-
ing a settlement freeze for econ-
omic reasons drew a storm of
protests from llerut hardliners
and a threat by the ultra-
nationalist Tehiya Party to quit
Joint Chiefs Chairman
Finally Cornered in Israel
TEL AVIV Gen. John
Vessey, chairman of the U.S.
Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived here
for a three-day visit to familiarize
himself with Israel's military in-
stallations and defense opera-
tions. He is not scheduled to hold
uny substantive talks. He arrived
here atler meeting with Lebanese
President Amin Gemayel in
Beirut where, according to Leb-
anese sources, Vessey expressed
American support for efforts to
build up Lebanon's army and
achieve foreign troop withdrawal.
Some Israeli papers hinted
that Vessey was not particularly
enamoured about visiting Israel.
The Jerusalem Post said he had
"evaded invitations" for many
months and was one of the main
op|M>nents of using Israeli
hospitals for the U.S. servicemen
wounded in the October car
bombing of Mari-ne head-
quarters in Beirut.

NEW YORK The United
States Ambassador to the United

The envoy said that the efforts
to expel Israel from the UN dur-
ing the last two years were
"turned back" to a large degree
by extensive U.S. lobbying
among member-states and pub-
lic, as well as private warnings
that the U.S. will withdraw from
the world organization should the
efforts to expel Israel succeed.
Kirkpatrick said the United

Coalition Enlarged by One Seat
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
narrow parliamentary majority was enlarged by one seat
when former Welfare Minister Aharon Abu-Hatzeira
returned to the Knesset last week, having completed a
three-month jail term for embezzlement. He heads the
three-man Tami faction.
POLITICAL CIRCLES are waiting to see whether
Abu-Hatzeira will reclaim the Cabinet portfolio which he
placed in the hands of his associate, Aharon Uzan, after
his conviction. There was no indication from Shamir
whether he would allow the Tami leader to return straight
from jail to the Cabinet table.
Shamir's coalition commands 64 Knesset mandates
but its effective strength was reduced to 62 in recent
months because of Abu-Hatzeira's incarceration and the
absence of former Premier Menachem Begin who has been
confined to his home and has not attended parliament
since he announced his resignation last summer.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Once upon a time there were
Arab nations who made lota of
money selling overpriced oil to
the United States. These Arabs
made so much American money,
they deposited billions of dollars
in American banks. The Amer-
ican banks had so much money
on hand, they made loans to
other countries like Brazil, Mex-
ico, Argentina, Zambia just to
name a few.
What a wonderful thing for
American banks to be able to find
a place to loan all the Arab
There is one little problem,
however. Brazil, Mexico, Argen-
tina and Zambia, just to name a
few, spent the money and can t
seem to pay back the loans on
time. So they said to the Amer-
ican banks, loan us more money
so we can pay the loans back, be-
cause if you don't, we can t make
the payments. In America, we
call this default. That means
there is no way for the American
banks to get their money back.
Now let us pretend that Saudi
Arabia wanted to withdraw all of
its money out of American banks.
In America, we call this default.
That means there is no way for
American banks to pay back this
Does the Arab world know
this? You bet they do. Does this
affect American foreign policy.'
Is that why the Saudis get
AWAC's and anything else they
want? You bet it does. Is that
wny ttechtol, an Arab multi-
national organization, has infil-
trated the Presidential cabinet?
Is that why the U.S. forced Israel
out of Beirut to appease the
Saudis? Now you get the idea. Is
that why President Nixon, Ford,
Carter and Reagan have all
suspended arms shipments to Is-
rael for one reason or another?
Let's all be naive and pretend
that none of this is true. Let's
pretend that the foreign loans are
in no danger of default. Let's
pretend that the American banks
are able to survive a total Saudi
Now we have a happy ending.
A free U.S. supporting a free Is
rael. A free U.S. declaring the
PLO a terrorist band of murder
ous butchers who take pride in
claiming responsibility for the
murders of women and children.
But this is not a fairy tale and
the U.S. will pressure Israel and
compromise lives for money.

JERUSALEM (JTA) Drug addiction is high in
Israel, and there is a correlation between drug usage and
social circumstances, according to the findings of a public
committee which has been studying the problem for the
past five years.
PKOF. KALMAN MANN, chairman of the com-
mittee, said at a press conference here that there are some
4,000-6,000 addicts in Israel. About 50 percent of un-
derprivileged youths use drugs compared to 3-5 percent of
users among youths who are students or gainfully em-
ployed, the study found.
Mann said drug addiction in Israel is not epidemic,
but it could spread, and therefore the seriousness of the
phenomenon should not be underestimated. The com-
mittee did not recommend severe penalties for the use of
drugs, but neither did it suggest liberalization of the use of

If there are topics you would like
our Rabbis to discuss, please
submit them to the Floridian.
With the recent onset of the secular new year much has been
written about George Orwell's 1948 novel, 1984. The vision of
the world portrayed in that story has evoked many fears since
its publication. It speaks of a totalitarian government that has
complete control over its citizens and tells of the dread con-
sequences of revolting against that control. Actually, the novel
is but another portrayal of the attempts of the human being to
gain the powers attributed to God. Those attempts are not new,
but go back to the very roots of human life.
When God appeared to Moses He declared "My Name is the
Eternal, I am the One, I am God, you are human." The ex-
perience of Moses contains a message that is very essential to
Jewish teaching. If you want to have a world in which we are
able to live then we must realize that the human being is just a
human being and that God is God. The moment that God at-
tempts to become a human being is the moment that God fails
and the moment that the human being attempts to be God is
that moment that human being fails. If each realizes his role,
God on His part and the human being on his part we've got it
1984 is here. The scientists have moved that doomsday clock
one minute closer to midnight because they feel that within the
power of the human being is the ultimate ability and wish for
destruction. The world in which we live is filled with a sense of
omnipresence of government. The 1984 of George Orwell is not
really so far off, in fact, it is here. Man must be warned that the
clock moves closer.
Were it that we could go to the world with a message. I would
hope that message would be one of the treasures of Jewish ideas
which teaches is that God, thank God, is God and man, thank
God, is merely human. That is the way it was and that is the
way it should be. May the year 1984 erase from our memory the
visions contained in the book 7984. May it be a year of seeking
peace, of compromise, and of human understanding, a year of
moving the "doomsday clock" further away from midnight.
May the year 1984 be one in which we all recognize that the
human being is human and God is God.

MEET THE RABBIS / RABBIS ARE HUMAN, TOO
7 sessions of Vk hours each will be conducted by a different rabbi
from the South County community. The rabbis will present
autobiographical material and explain some of their personal and
professional goals and objectives and relate to you the human side
of their lives. In an open forum the audience will engage in dialogue
affording them the chance to ask questions and gain insight into
the lives of these seven men.
Amongst the seven rabbis will be those from each movement; Or-
thodox, Reform, Conservative. A retired rabbi, a non-pulpit
rabbi who is both a lawyer and the Executive Director of Federa-
tion; a newly married young rabbi; a newly married slightly older
rabbi. In other words, the rabbis will bring with them a range of
background, perspectives and positions which should make this
class a lively and unique addition to the format of the Academy.
