What Did Arens
Say About Him?
A sharp dispute has devel-
oped between Israeli
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens and writer Lucinda
Franks over remarks she
attributed to Arens in a
New York Times Magazine
article, which Arens insists
he never made.
According to Franks,
Arens called U.S. Defense
Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger "a prime candidate
for psychoanalysis" and
suggested that he had
"hang-ups" over the fact
that he had a Jewish
Arens, who saw a copy of the
article shortly before its public-
ation, was quoted by Times Jeru-
salem correspondent David
Shipler as saying, "I would have
been insane to say these things,
even if I thought them. And I
don't think them."
Shipler reported that Arens
telephoned Weinberger to assure
him that he had never made the
statements reported by Franks.
Arens' spokesman, Nachman
Shai, and later Arens himself,
called the Times Jerusalem
Bureau to discuss portions of
Franks' article.
Denying the attributions, he
declared. "I have a great deal of
respect for him (Weinberger) and
the way he does his job. There
has been a great deal of improve-
ment in Israeli-American rela-
tions, and Caspar Weinberger
(played a crucial role in that
improvement," Shipler reported
from Jerusalem.
vigorously that he had offered to
return disputed territory to
Egypt if the Egyptian Defense
Minister would meet with him, as
reported by Franks. "This was
never my opinion, never my posi-
tion. This is totally mis-
construed," Arens said.
But Franks, a former reporter
for The New York Times, who
won a Pulitzer Prize in 1971 as a
reporter for United Press
International for a five-part
series on the radical Weatherman

About Weinberger?

group, is standing by her attri-
butions. Shipler reported that she
told him in a telephone interview
from New York that her notes
confirm what Arens said.
Her husband. Manhattan
District attorney Robert
Morgenthau. who accompanied
her at her meeting with Arens in
Jerusalem last December, offered
further corroboration. Shipler
about Weinberger referred to the
time the Defense Secretary
visited Israel and was accom-
panied by Arens. then Israel's
Ambassador to Washington, to
the Yad Vashem. the Holocaust
According to Franks, Arens
told her that Weinberger "has a
lot of hang-ups about his Jewish-
ness. When we went into the hall
where all the names of the
concentration camps are etched
in stone, we told him that since
his grandfather was Jewish, he
would be considered a Jew ac-
cording to the Nazi racial laws.
We watched his face for a reac-
tion, and there was none."
Arens told Shipler. "These are
just outrageous Nobody was
idiotic enough there to tell him
that this (the Nazi laws) would
have any reference to him. It is
ridiculous." According to
Franks. Arens made the remarks
while driving with her and
Morgenthau from a Christmas
Eve ceremony at Bethlehem.
MORGENTHAU confirmed
her account, asserting that "I
heard him say it. I was sitting in
the car with him. I was surprisi 4
that he said it. But he did say it.
there's no doubt about that .
He never said anything about its
being on background."
Confronted with Morgenthau's
confirmation, Arens told Shipler.
"I'm telling you it's outrageous.
Absolutely wrong," the Times
corespondent reported.
Arens also denied Franks'
assertion that he had told her
Defense Minister Arens
that Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres was "worse than he ap-
peared." Shipler reported that
the Defense Minister insisted. "I
never thought that and therefore
I never said it."
Franks conceded later that this
quotation was in error. She said
that according to her notes, what
Arens said was that Peres was
one of the few politicians "who
appears worse than he is."
Shipler reported. Edward Klein,
editor of the Times Magazine,
attributed this error to an
"editing transposition" but said
that "in all other respects I stand
behind her story."
According to Franks' article,
the offer to return disputed terri-
tory to Egypt was made by
Arens' aide. Shai. Shai told
Shipler that Franks had
misunderstood Israel's position
on the issue and that he had
never told her Israel would give
up the territory if the Egyptian
Defense Minister would agree to
meet Arens.

Baiter. The latter two are among
20 activists who recently signed a
petition to the Presidium of the
Supreme Soviet asking that they
be allowed to emigrate to Israel.
The Zunshains, who had pro-
tested in a July, 1983 petition to
the Presidium of the Supreme
Soviet against the refusal of the
authorities to allow them to
emigrate to Israel, have been
waiting since 1980 to do so.

ADL Reports Conflicts, Bigotry
The Florida Office of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has reported
that ADL's monthly con-
ference calls with Florida
Hillel directors revealed
concern over a conflict with
Passover in the scheduling
of final examinations at
Florida State universities.
According to the report, issued
here by the Miami office of the
Anti-Defamation League. "ADL
brought the matter to the atten-
tion of Barbara W. Newell,
chancellor of the State University
system. Her memo to university
presidents reads:
" 'I ask that you make all
reasonable effort to assure that
observers of Passover will not be
penalized for missing exams
scheduled during this period, and
that make-up exams or other
procedures be established which
will not overly inconvenience
those who observe Passover.'
THE ADL has also entered the
breach in another calendar
conflict when it was learned that
the Florida Board of Dentistry
refused an out-< f-state com-
plainant's request for an alter-
native examination date, since
the upcoming written and clinical
examinations fall on the first two
days of Shavuot.
"We thought that the issue
had been resolved in 1979,
following an ADL complaint on
behalf of another observant Jew.
who could not take the exam,
then scheduled on a Saturday."
explained Arthur Teitelbaum,
Southern Area director of ADL.
He added that "a Seventh Day
Adventist was also a separate
complainant at that time."
Said Teitelbaum: "After much
wrangling, the Dentistry Board
gave an alternative exam. At
ADL's request, the Board also
established a policy to
'reasonably accommodate' the
needs of religiously-observant
IN BEHALF of the current
complaint, the ADL is making
"formal representation to the
legal counsel for the Florida
Department of Professional
Regulation, which supervises the
Board of Dentistry."
In other, unrelated matters
throughout Florida, ADL's Palm
Beach Regional Office continues
to expose deep-rooted social
discrimination in the Palm Beach
area. An investigation of the
Junior Assembly of Palm
Beach's exclusion of Jewish
children from dance classes
resulted in the JA reversing its
policy. In reaction to the issue,
the Palm Beach County Com-
munity Relations Board has
requested the Flagler Museum,
which housed the dance classes,
to refuse the use of their facilities
by discriminatory groups. Also.

Shultz Warns
Reagan Won't Budge on Jerusalem
(JTA) Secretary of State
George Shultz has stressed
that President Reagan
would not move the U.S.
Embassy in Israel from Tel
Aviv to Jerusalem even if
Congress passed a law re-
quiring it. "The President
is very much opposed to it
and will not move that Em-
bassy,'" he said in an ap-
pearance on the NBC-TV
Meet the Press program.
But Shultz would not predict
whether Reagan would veto such
a bill. Instead, he stressed that if
the bill was adopted by Congress,
no matter what the President did
it would still "be very bad for the
United States."
HE SAID that "it would be a
gigantic aggravation to im-
portant religions, particularly
Moslem, the Islamic religion, and
it would thereby damage the
interests of the U.S. It would
damage our ability to be effective
in the peace process."
However, Shultz added that he
has the "impression" that
"people in the Congress are more
and more having second
thoughts about this and are
looking around for some way in
which they might defuse this
The Embassy issue was also
discussed on the CBS-TV Face
the Nation program on which the
topic was the "Jewish lobby,"
two days before the primaries in
New York State where former
Vice President Walter Mondale
and Sen. Gary Hart (D., Colo.)
made their support for the
Embassy move a major cam-
paign theme in their quest for the
Democratic Presidential nomina-
ON THE CBS program, the
Rev. Jesse Jackson, another
Democratic Presidential aspirant
who opposes his two rivals on the
Embassy move, said that to
"shift the Embassy at this point
would be a dangerous and
He said that Sen. Daniel Moy-
nihan (D., N.Y.), by introducing
the bill to move the Embassy,
"threw a sucker punch" that
Hart and Mondale "could not
dodge." But, he said, the Em-
bassy issue should not be the
"litmus test" for support of
"Our country loves Israel,"
Jackson said. He said the U.S.
should support Israel's right to
exist with economic and military
aid, but at the same time it
should also "challenge the Arabs
to end their holy war against
TO DO SO, Jackson said, the
U.S. must talk to the Arabs, in-
cluding the Palestine Liberation
Organization. But he denied that
he has ever made support for
talks with the PLO the "litmus
test" for his suport of whoever
wins the Democratic nomination.
Sen. Alan Cranston (D., Calif.),
also appearing on Face the
Nation, said it was "ridiculous"
that the Embassy issue has
become a major one, although he
noted that he supports the Moy-
nihan bill or a reported compro-
mise that would make the Con-
gressional action non-mandatory
on the President.
Cranston, who earlier dropped
out of the Democratic primary
race, said the U.S. supports
Israel because it "is a demo-
cracy," the only one in the
Middle East.
Hyman Bookbinder, the
Washington representative of the
American Jewish Committee,
another guest on the program,
said the Embassy issue is a
"legitimate" one, but it is not a
"litmus" but one of many issues.
"The Jewish community cares
very much about Israel," Book-
binder stressed. "We make no
apologies for caring very much.
We are not embarrassed about
being identified with this issue.
But we are an American group
that loves America, and we want
to see a good, strong America
and we work on a whole range of
Cranston noted that "the in-
fluence of Jews in America is an
example of democracy at work.
Jews have been subjected to dis-
crimination in our society as have
Blacks and Hispanics and women
and others, and the fact that they
are making progress, that they're
able to represent their views, is
an example of democracy at
FORMER Democratic Sen.
James Abourezk of South
Dakota, national chairman of the
American-Arab Anti-Discrimina-
tion Committee, said that polit-
icians are "pandering" to the
views of Jews on the Jerusalem
issue because they "are assuming
that Jewish voters are totally
stupid. I think that is a wrong
assumption." But Abourezk
accused Jewish organizations of
completely following Israeli
policy, a view with which Book-
binder disagreed.
Jackson revealed that since his
return from Damascus where he
secured the release of captured
U.S. Navy pilot Lt. Robert
Goodman, he has received letters
from Israelis asking for his help
to secure the release of their rela-
tives in Syria. He said he has
made requests of the Syrian gov-
He did not specify whether he
was talking about five Israeli sol-
diers believed held captive by the
Syrians or Syrian Jews trying to
emigrate from Syria. Jackson
said he has also been in contact
with the Soviet Embassy here to
aid imprisoned Jewish activist
Anatoly Sharansky.

Page 4 The JewiahFloridian of South County / Friday, April 13,1984
Some Reagan Administration critics are
saying that the President pushed for a
school prayer amendment to the Con-
stitution now in order to pay his debt to the
ultra-Conservative forces in the Republican
Party whose support he would like to have
again in this election year.
They say that Mr. Reagan didn't really
expect the amendment would pass through
the Senate; now that it has failed, he can
walk away from the incident feeling that he
hadn't really done any harm but was
merely politicking.
If that is true, then the President is
guilty of having committed an especially
dastardly thing. We do not hold with these
critics. We prefer to think of his effort
merely on its face. In our view, on its face,
the school prayer amendment was bad
Every religious persuasion in the nation
had much to fear were the amendment to
have passed. This was especially true for
minorities. For the Jewish community,
which argued so strenuously against the
amendment, their children will be spared
the embarrassment and sectarianism which
could have prevailed had the Senate not
defeated the proposal.
But we prefer to believe that all religions
will benefit. The fact is that the church-
state separation principle, unique to
American life, has served the nation well
since its inception. Indeed, the principle
has served us so well, that we are prone to
forget why it was established in the first
Spiritual Intimidation
A brief review of European history is all
that is needed to remind us of the basis for
the Founding Fathers' wise decision.
Public school prayer has potentially
dangerous implications that could have led
to a separation of students on a religious
basis. But the far broader impact would be
a return to the era of the zealot, whose
devotion to God as he sees it drives him
ultimately to impose that devotion on all
others, including institutions, as well.
In the implementation of public school
prayer, were the amendment to have
passed, it is precisely the zealot whom all of
us would have had to fear. For it is the
zealot's personal view of God as he sees it
that would have constituted im-
plementation of the amendment.
Such an amendment would do little to
help all people develop a better un-
derstanding of religious and cultural
diversity. Such an amendment would have
opened the door to spiritual "nourishment"
by intimidation.
An Object Lesson
The career of the French legendary
figure. Charles de Gaulle, does not inspire
either admiration or kindly words from
those who recall the roie of France in World
War II. For Jews especially, fa grand
Charles is a figure of frank hostility.
For it was Charles de Gaulle who, in the
wake of the 1967 Six-Day War, imposed a
cruel and senseless embargo upon trade
with Israel, thus ending a brief era of
Franco-Israel friendship that, up until
then, had been heartwarming.
In fact, some observers trace the new
spate of anti-Semitism in France today to
this hardening of attitude toward Israel
that De Gaulle fathered.
Still, from a specifically French point of
view, De Gaulle achieved many things. One
of them was a reduction of the multitude of
political parties in his country that tore the
governing process apart and made it
virtually impossible for anything like
proper French rule.
This is an achievement from which
Israel, itself, may well learn a valuable
lesson. The early elections slated for July
23 demonstrate once again, if demon-
stration is indeed necessary. that coalition
government in Israel is a hazard that it
should not continue to suffer. For coalition
government, especially in the face of such a
multitude of parties as exist in Israel, in
._ Amendment
fact boils down to government by in-
The number of compromising deals that
a coalition leader must make, from David
Ben-Gurion to the president premier,
Yitzhak Shamir, is staggering. With the
current crises in the economy and in
Lebanon, yet one more political crisis is
hardly necessary.
Still, such is the system to,18"*11*1*1,
early elections were inevitable. Charles de
Gaulle can, by emulation, teach Israel
much. As, incidentally, can the electoral
system in West Germany where a
minimum five percent of the total vote is
needed before splinter political entities can
claim seats in the Bundestag. A similar
system would be a boon for the Knesset.
De Gaulle and the Bundestag may be
strange role models for Israel, but it would
be hard to find better ones in this instance.

We 're Super I
Over $190,000 Raised
On Sunday, April 1, the South
County Jewish Federation held
its annual "Super Sunday phone-
a-thon on behalf the United
Jewish Appeal-Federation
Campaign. It was held at
Congregation Anshei Emuna,
Delray Beach. And what a
"Super" Super Sunday it turned
out to be.
With over 400 volunteers in the
community involved, an unpre-
cedented $190,000 was raised
during the 12 hours of intensive
phone calling. This compares to
SI30,000 raised in 1983, a better
than 45 percent increase. About
2,000 gifts were received in 1984
compared to 1,866 gifts the year
before. Several thousand addi-
tional dollars are anticipated in a
mass mailing that took place

Much hard work went into the
organizing of this event and the
success was due primarily to the
dedication of the Super Sunday

This year an effort was made to
combine the expertise and
resources of the four South
Florida Federations so that
Super Sunday '84 would be the
best publicized ever. This turned
out to be the case. The Jewish
Federations of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale, Palm Beach and
South Broward, in addition to the
South County Jewish Federation,
cooperated in an effort to "blitz"
the media. Television, radio and
newspapers all conveyed the
General Chairperson Massry
was elated. "Never in my wildest
dreams did I expect to raise the
kind of money we raised that day.
It has made all my hard work and
that of my committee worth-
while. It is truly heartwarming to
know that so many Jews in our
South County community really
care what happens to other Jews.
Mrs. Hertz, an associate chair-
person and last year's general
chairperson said, "that perhaps
ever: more important than the
money we raised on April 1, is
what we saw exhibited a
community spirit unparalleled.
This exemplifies the spirit of
Super Sunday."

Asked whether the 1975
Helsinki Accords, which U.S. and
Kumpean leaders hoped would
provide certain guarantees on
human rights in the Eastern Bloc
countries, had proved to be a
failure, t he candidates replied:
MONDALE: "The process
behind the Accords resulting
from the Helsinki Final Act has
not failed. Continued discussion
bet ween the Soviet Union and the
West is not only healthy, it is
necessary. Unfortunately, the
Soviet Union doesn't seem to be
willing to adhere to the principle
>f human rights and for this
reason, internatkmal progress in
the field of human rights has not

"As President, then. I would

J" the absence of dialogue.
Consequently, we must continue
to participate in follow-up confer-
ences to the Helsinki Accords
such as the Madrid Conference."
Jackson: "Yes (Helsinki has
^n a failure). Because our
relationship with the Soviet
yn'on has deteriorated, and
because we are without a plat-
rm fr the relations between the
two countries, we have no lever-
age with the Soviets.

obligations of the United States
to strongly pursue and advocate
the issue of "human rights."
HART: "The Soviet failure to
comply should not be interpreted
as a failure of the Helsinki
process. If anything, it has
allowed the U.S. and other
countries to focus their attacks
on Soviet human rights viola-
tions. Even bearing in mind the
many obstacles facing attempts
at assurance of compliance, we
have to maintain vigilant efforts.
As President I would use all the
powers of that office to remind
the Soviet leadership of our
constant attention to this issue.
"The U.S. should continue to
participate in follow-up confer-
ences on the Helsinki Accords.
Any perception on the part of the
Soviets that we are inconsistent
in our belief in the legitimacy of
an international monitoring role
will be a sign that the U.S. is not
truly committed to basic human
rights as a primary tenet of our
foreign policy."
Mondale said that as
President, "I would reinforce our
support of human rights prin-
ciples by introducing the subject
(of Soviet Jewish emigration) at
all bilateral meetings between the
U.S. and the USSR."
Hart said, "I would call for a
discussion on Soviet Jewish
emigration issues and individual
cases at all levels of official
contact between the two govern-
ments, whenever appropriate."
Jackson said that the issue of
Soviet Jewish emigration
"should be raised within any
broad- based discussion between
the U.S. and the USSR."

5.000 Protest
As SS Totenkopf Unit Gathers
who perished in the KriataUnacht
and who introduced into the
church hand-made sculptures
bearing Stars of David.
The Mayor of Oberaula is Hans
Joachim Schmuecker, a member
of he Social Democratic Party
(SPD). He told the Jewish Tek
graphic Agency that "until no*
no one here raised the matter of
putting up a commemorate
tablet (to Oberaula's Jews)
we try our best to keep the'locai
Jewish cemetery clean," he said
About 5,000 people mar-
ched through the Hessian
town of Oberaula to protest
the reunion taking place
there of veterans of the SS
"Totenkopf" (Deaths
Head) Division, a unit
which with a notorious
history of slaughtering
Jews and others during
World War II.
The marchers, who outnum-
bered the inhabitants of Oberaula
by nearly 2-1, chanted "Nazis
Out" and laid a wreath at the site
of the former synagogue which
was destroyed during the 1938
The protestors included
members of the Young Socialists,
the Green Party, the West
German Communist Party and
about 100 Jews, many of them

had a two-fold purpose: to
protest against the Oberaula
authorities for renting a
municipally-owned hall to the SS
alumni and their families,
masquerading as the "Ilman
Lake Travel Club," and against
the Bonn government for its
failure to outlaw HIAG, the
umbrella organization of SS
veteran groups in West Ger-
many. Under German law, all
successor organizations to the
Nazi SS and SA are supposed to
be banned.
The march took place Saturday
as an estimated 200-400 SS
veterans were holding their
annual reunion under heavy
police guard which included
about 350 riot police armed with
water cannons. The marchers
were angry but peaceful and no
i disturbances or confrontations
took place.
A wreath of yellow flowers in
the shape of a Star of David was
placed at the synagogue site, now
part of a private estate. Once,
about 100 Jews lived in Oberaula,
but today there is no marker to
testify to their former existence.
LATER IN the day, the
demonstrators held mass
meeting at which strong anti-
Nazi speeches were delivered and
the government was urged to ban
HIAG. That organization was
not even listed in the annual
official report on far rightwing
groups which pose a threat to
democracy in the Federal
Republic. The ommission, by
Interior Minister Friedrich Zim-
merman, was publicly approved
by Chancellor Helmut Kohl.
The "Totenkopf veterans
themselves protested that their
gathering was not political, just a
get-together of "old chums" nd
their families. One of them, Kurt
Meier, a member of the Free
Democratic Party (FDP), a
partner in Kohl's coalition
government, insisted he was not
a Nazi, "old or new," but in fact a
"liberal." According to Meier, he
and his colleagues learned of Nazi
atrocities only after the war.
But documented history tells a
different story. The hard core of
the "Totenkopf" Division was
made up of 6,500 members of the
SS "Totenkopfstandarten" who
served as guards at various
concentration camps. They were
trained by the first commander of
Dachau. Theodor Eicke. who was
also the first commander of the
"Totenkopf" Division.
division was SS Obersturmbann-
fuehrer Friedrich Hartjenstein.
commander of the Auschwitz-
Birkenau death camp complex in
1944 and later of the Natzweiler
of Fbsscver
concentration camp.
In 1940, the "Totenkopf"
Division massacred 100 British
prisoners of war at Le Paradies in
Flandre, France. In 1943, units of
the "Totenkopf" participated in
the annihilation of the survivors
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising,
an operation that took the lives of
56,065 men, women and children.
The divisions commander at that
time, Gen Paul Hausser, was a
founder of HIAG in 1949.
Also in 1943, the "Totenkipf"
Division was responsible for the
slaughter of 20,000 inhabitants of
Charkow, most of them Jews.
The selection of Oberaula, a
town of about 3,500 for this
year's reunion of the division,
was kept a secret to avoid
counter-demonstrations such as
had occured in past years in other
towns where SS alumni gathered.
After the hall rental was
disclosed, the town authorities
were flooded by requests from
anti-Nazi groups all over Ger-
many and Europe and from
abroad, to cancel the Nazi
gathering. These were ignored.
Eppo Freiherr Van Doernberg,
the local chairman of Kohl's
Christian Democratic Union
(CDU), was especially active in
promoting the reunion at
Oberaula. He reportedly pressed
the town council to rent the hall.
Doernberg's grandfather, the
late Alexander Von Doernberg,
served as an SS Oberfuehrer and
received the highest SS award,
the SS Ehrendegen. He was also
a special Ambassador of Hitler

Shamir Sends Mubarak Warm
Message on Accord Anniversary
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir
sent a message of warm greetings to President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt to mark the fifth anniversary of the
signing of the Israel-Egypt peace treaty. Shamir etf
pressed his hope for "development" of the relations
between the two countries and also expressed his con-
fidence that the treaty would be a "cornerstone" for
broader Middle East peace.
SHAMIR'S AIDES said his message was especially
significant because it follows some harsh statements by

studying the way hornets build

the insects possess specialized
mechanisms which enable them
to detect gravitational forces.
In one experiment, special
containers with hornets were
placed on a horizontal centrifuge
which produced centrifugal forces
as it rotated. Despite these addi-
tional forces and changes in
direction, the hornets were able
to detect minute changes in the
gravitational force.

more predictable than bees,

Interview: Jumblatt Sees Israel Policy as 'Fiasco'
Walid Jumblatt, the 35-

known for his ambivalent
attitude towards Israel,

policy in Lebanon as a com-

Sunbelt States Home
For More Than One-Third
Of Jews in U.S.
Belt states of the South and
West are now home for one-
third of all American Jews,
according to a demographic
study, "Jewish Population
in the United States,"'
appearing in the just pub-
lished 1984 American
Jewish Year Book.
A shift toward the Sun Belt
continued in 1983 even though
the total American Jewish
population, at approximately
5.728.000 remained virtaullv un-
changed from 1982.
CALIFORNIA recorded the
biggest increase 13.265 for
a total of 789.260 Jews. Texas
gained 4.000 Jews, bringing its
statewide Jewish population to
77.100. Arizona posted a 3.000
increase, pushing its total to
49.000. Alabama. Florida.
Georgia, and Louisiana were
other Sun Belt states that
showed increases in the numbers
of Jewish residents.
"The South and West now
account for 34 percent of the
country's Jewish population,"
reported Alvin Chenkin, of the
Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds, author of the
Year Book article.
New Jersey. Pennsylvania.
Illinois, and Indiana recorded the
greatest losses of Jewish popula-
tion during the year. Mr. Chenkin
pointed out that they are states
in the Northeast and North
Central regions, where two-thirds
of all American Jews are
currently resident.
THE STATES with the largest
Jewish populations, as of 1983.
were: New York. 1.869.190;

Herzog Invites Queen Elizabeth
To Come for Official Visit
President Chaim Herzog
has invited Britain's Queen
Elizabeth to visit Israel.
The invitation was made at
Windsor Castle, where the
Queen and President met
over luncheon.
Since overseas royal visits
have to be cleared by the British
government, the Queen was
unable to confirm her acceptance
of it. Last week she visited
Jordan. 18 years after being
invited there by King Hussein. It
is believed that she was also
informally invited to Israel, when
former President Ephraim Katzir
called on her eight years ago.
unable to signify her acceptance
of the invitation, there is no
doubt that a royal visit to Israel
would be popular with the British
public. Numerous newspaper
editorials have complained at the
fact that there has never been a
royal visit to Jerusalem even
though the Queen has officially
visited three Arab states.
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher has also been invited to
Israel, and has accepted in
principle. This emerged from a
meeting which she and Herzog
had last Friday at 10 Downing
Street, the Premier's residence.
Mrs. Thatcher, a long-standing
friend of Israel, last visited it
before becoming Prime Minister.
The visit to the Queen markec
the climax*oi the five-day visit
here by Herzog and his wife,
Aura, as guests of the Jewish
community. (The couple were
greeted tumultuously by l.OOC
guests at a dinner organized by
the Board of Deputies of British
Jews and the Joint Israel Appeal.
Meanwhile, Herzog's visit here
has been a media and political
success. The British public has
been won over by his strong
British connections his Irish
birth, his distinguished war
record, his ownership of an
honorary British Knighthood,
and his reputation as an author
and distinguished military com-
mentator on the BBC.
The friendship shown to
Herzog is in sharp contrast with
the animosity engendered here
last year by Israel's seizure of
Beirut and the Sabra and Shatila
massacres of Palestinians by
Israeli-backed Christians. The
Jewish community, too, has been
deeply heartened by Herzog's
their promises and have generally
managed to keep the areas under
their control free from Pales-
tinian infiltrations.
ONCE ISRAEL carried a great
deal of weight in Lebanon. Now
itonly wields a relatively minor
influence outside south Lebanon
where the Israelis are in control.
The fault, according to Jumblatt.
is Israel's and Israel's alone.
Former Premier Menachem
Begin and former Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon bear most
of the responsibility, but Sharon
is mainly to blame for the
reversal of Israel's influence in
Lebanon, he stated.
Israel's political and military
establishments are also to blame.
Jumblatt asserted in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
When I look at Israels leaders. I
seem to see a reflection of our
own living mummies, men like
(Pierrel Gemayel and (Camillel
Chamoun. relics of another era
with their fixed ideas and vested
interests. It is not a question of
age but of mentality and when I
look at Israel's leaders I seem to
see our own."
Jumblatt and this corres-
pondent met toward the end of
the Lebanese reconciliation talks
here at a small lake-side inn away
from the luxurious palace where
most of the other leaders had
stayed. For 10 days, he had
bitterly opposed, at times, his
traditional enemies. the
Gemayels. but had also worked
hard to try and reach some sort of
agreement and put an end to the
10 years of near constant
bloodshed and fighting.

referred to as "godfathers" in-

Regarding Israel, the Druze
leader stressed that its main
mistake was its reliance on force,
and practically on force alone.
"Israel's experts only seem to
know one method, one system
alone: force." he observed.
"They send military columns,
trucks, tanks, armored cars
across the Awali (river).
Sometimes they even reach
Khalde (a village only six miles
south of Beirut). But. so what?
No one really cares. People are no
longer afraid. We get used to
everything, even fear, and people

windows any longer when the
Israeli columns pass. Force is
simply not effective any longer.

"The Lebanese have seen so
many things, each more horrible
than the other, that little scares
them now. And by using force,
what can Israel do? Occupy the
south? Move back into Beirut?"
Jumblatt, usually dressed in a
leather jacket and close-fitting
blue jeans, is dressed in a suit for
the occasion and even sports a
tie, flamboyant red, as befits
some say. the leader of the
Lebanese Socialist Party, the
most left wing formation in the
country although it is still very
much to the right of center.
The Druze leader works
generally, including in Lausanne,
without the large staff of experts
and advisers which surround the
other leaders. His main advisers
are his cousin. Khaled, and a
former reporter Marwan

and radio, Jumblatt is
remarkably well informed.

men in power are, and how
decisions are made. He thinks

Reform Movement Publishes
Guidelines On Jewish Practices
The Central Conference of
American Rabbis (CCAR). the
association of Reform rabbis, has
announced publication of Amer-
ican Reform Responsa. the first
complete collection of responsa
published by the CCAR in its 94
years of existence.
The 560-page volume contains
172 responsa. written over the
years by the CCAR Responsa
"Committee. Rabbi Walter Jacob,
editor of the collection, is the
present committee chairman. In
the introduction, he declared that
"we have looked at Halacha
(Jewish Religious Law) in a
different and. we believe, more
creative way than other Jewish
groups. We have not looked to
the Orthodox for approval:
rather, our responsa have
linked the past to the present and
sought to make Halacha
meaningful to new generations."
Responsa are answers written
by noted rabbis, usually based on
Jewish law and tradition, to
formally posed questions con-
cerning Jewish practices. The
entries to the new collection
range from practical questions on
the Reform approach to
marriage, divorce. funeral
practices, bar mitzvahs. adop-
tion, euthanasia, artificial in-
semination, and similar complex
issues in modern Jewish life down
to lesser-known details of Jewish
ritual law.
JACOB ALSO wrote that
"guidance has been sought in
almost every area of life; the
approach to the questions is
realistic: patterns which seemed
fixed by tradition have been
shown to be more flexible than
ever imagined, by thorough
study of their development.'
He also wrote that "permissive
answers predominate, but they
are often accompanied by
cautionary strictures." He com-
mented also that some of the
writers of responsa refer to
Jewish Law and tradition more

early Reform thinkers, while well-
educated in Halacha. chose to
emphasize the Reform move-
ment's rejection of Halacha as
binding on Reform Jews.
The implications of that
rejection, which remains true for
Reform Jews at present, were
raised by the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency with Rabbi Elliot
Stevens, CCAR administrative
secretary. Unlike equivalent
rulings in Orthodoxy and
Conservative Judaism, Reform
responsa lack the force of law and
accordingly the Reform responsa
collection constitutes simply a
set of guidelines, which the in-
dividual Reform rabbi can accept
or reject. Stevens points out.
The question of referring to
traditional Jewish law in for-
mulating Reform Jewish prac-
tice, as well as the flexibility of
Reform Jewish thought, it was
pointed out. are clearly indicated
in the first two responsa in the
collection. Both deal with the
Reform Jewish approach toward
traditional practices once
discarded by Reform Judaism.

Israel Bettan in 1956, is firm in

A Rabbi
The following is brought to
floridian readers by the South
bounty Rabbinical Association.
if there are topics you would lihe
\ur Rabbis to discuss, please
tbmit them to the Floridian.
Rabbi Dr. Louis L. Sacks
Congregation Anshei Emuna
Pesach and Shovuoth the Exodus from Egypt and the
Revelation on Sinai's peak are the two major pivotal foci
around which Judaism revolves. The liberation from physical
bondage and the redemption from moral and spiritual
degradation are two aspects of one redeeming reality. The daily
' counting of the 49 days separating the physical and spiritual
redemption manifests the indivisible nexus uniting into one
organic whole the two major epocal phenomena of our martyred
but gloriously exalted odyssey.
Four of our Talmudic sages are engaged in a most luminous
discussion as to what verse in the Torah constitutes the most all-
| embracive imperative principle of Judaism.
The first sage, the towering giant Rabbi Akiba, living in the
shadow of Roman tyranny, asserts "Love thy neighbor as
thyself for I am the Lord" as the basic concept in the Bible. We
evince our love for G-d through reverencing the "Image of G-d"
innate in every human being who as a child of G-d is of supreme
Religion is not merely what it does for us but it is also what it
I impels us to do for others. To become sensitively aware of the
divine ties binding us together; to deepen our sense of belonging
ind fellowship and above all to develop a compassionate heart
beating with empathy constitute essential commands in
Another sage, Ben Zoma, posited the Shma as the cardinal
| comprehensive concept in Yiddishkeit "Hear O Israel the
! Lord is our G-d, the Lord is One." The unity of G-d postulates
the oneness of the cosmos, the universe, the oneness of
humanity, Israel and.the harmony inherent in each individual;
the Fatherhood of G-d culminates into the brotherhood of man.
A third sage, Ben Nanas, advanced the verse in Genesis "For
in the image of G-d was man created." This implies the inherent
dignity of man and his inviolate rights of life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness which are divinely ordained. Our
democratic processes are founded upon this principle of
reverence for the individual and of equality of opportunity. The
inalienable rights enunciated in the Declaration of Independence
are rooted in the undeniable assumption that there is a spark of
divinity within us all and that we are not specks of dust or cogs
in a colossal machine self-evolved and self-operative.
Finally Ben Pazi educes the verse in Numbers "One sacrifice
shalt thou offer in the morning and the other in the evening" as
the fundamental one in Torah. The need of Sacrifice, of supreme
effort, of translating and concretizing our glowing and lofty
ideals and affirmations into our daily lives, is a supremely
urgent need. Of what use are our exalted verities, our pious
resolutions when we are not prepared to offer sacrificial devotion
in implementing them?
Ever since Sinai, humanity has espoused the most sublime,
eternal values but they have remained floating and dangling in
mystical clouds. We have not taken religion seriously, not

Terrorist Attack
48 Felled in Jerusalem Shoot-Out
Forty-eight persons were
felled by a terrorist guns-
and-grenades attack Mon-
day morning on King
George Street near Jaffa
Road, Jerusalem's busiest
intersection. All were
rushed to hospitals, but by
Monday evening most had
been discharged after treat-
ment for slight wounds.
Of the 14 remaining hospital-
ized, the condition of one person
was described as "very grave"
and four others were being
treated for serious wounds.
Two terrorists were ap-
prehended at the scene. One of
them, shot and severely wounded
by armed civilian passersby, died
in a hospital. A third terrorist,
who escaped in a car, was
arrested by police at a roadblock
on the outskirts of the city.
PREMIER Yitzhak Shamir
pledged in a brief statement that
"the assailants and those who
sent them will not go un-
punished." Responsibility for the
attack was claimed by the
Damascus-based Democratic
Front for the Liberation of Pales-
tine, headed by Nayef Hawat-
Authorities do not rule out the
possibility that the terrorists
planned to seize the Ministry of
Tourism which is located near the
scene of the attack and to take
hostages there. Hawatmeh's
organization in Damascus
claimed in fact that hostages
were taken, but this was
dismissed aa nonsense by the
The attack was the third
terrorist assault on civilians in
Jerusalem in three months. Four
persons were killed and 46
wounded when a bomb

near the Bay it Vegan suburb. In
late February, 21 persons were
injured when booby-trapped
hand grenades exploded outside a
shop on Jaffa Road.
cribed as men who spoke English
with Arabic accents. Two of them
entered a menswear shop on King
George Street shortly before 10
a.m., local time, carrying plastic
bags. According to the
shopkeeper, they were trying on
jeans when, on a shouted signal
from outside, they burst out of
the changing cubicles brand-
ishing weapons.
One held a gun to the head of a
shop assistant while the other
raced into the street hurling hand
grenades indiscriminately. The
second man then ran out of the
shop and opened fire at random
on passersby and neighboring
The wounded, lying every-
where on the sidewalk, were
carried off in ambulances. Most
were taken to Bikur Holim, the
nearest hospital, and others to
Hadassah and Shaare Zedek
hospitals. Observers said it was
remarkable that more people
were not hurt and that most of
the victims were not seriously
MAYOR Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem linked the attack to
the diplomatic attention
currently focused on the city
because of legislation before the
Congress that would require
President Reagan to move the
American Embassy in Israel
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Kollek, addressing a group of
visiting mayors and other
municipal officials from the U.S.
and other countries, said the
Embassy issue had revived
speculation about the possibility
of peace talks between Israel and

LONDON (JTA) A high-
ranking Egyptian official on a
formal visit to Nigeria has told
the country's rulers that they and
other Black African countries
should not reestablish diplomatic
relations with Israel, the World
Jewish Congress reported.
Egypt's Minister of State for
Foreign Affairs, Butros Ghali,
was reported to have pressed this
view on the Nigerian government
during his visit there, according
to a broadcast of the domestic
service of Radio Nigeria. Ghali
was quoted as saying that Egypt
was using a "carrot" in its efforts
to bring about Middle East
peace, and that Nigeria could use
the "stick."
Arabs Must Act Now
Herzog Sees 'Golden Opportunity'
President Chaim Herzog of
Israel said here that the
Camp David accords
present "a golden oppor-
tunity for the Palestinian
Arabs for the first time in
their history" to take their
own fate into their hands.
"Sooner or later" they will, he
said in an address to the annual
dinner of the Anglo-Israel Asso-
ciation. He said he based his hope
on the "growing sense of
disenchantment" among Arab
leaders on the West Bank and
Gaza with both Palestine Liber-
ation Organization chief Yaair
Arafat and King Hussein of
HERZOG, accompanied by his
wife. Aura, arrived here for a five-
day visit as guests of the Anglo-
Jewish community. In his
speech, he paid tribute to Israel's
debt to Britain, noting that even

their struggle for independence

TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
soldiers and Arab civilians were
injured Thursday as unrest
spread in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip on the eve of "Land
Day" which the Palestinian pop-
ulation marks Friday. A hand
grenade wounded three Israel
soldiers slightly and injured
seven local residents near the
Jebeliya refugee camp on the
outskirts of Gaza.
respect for the principles and
values of British civilization."
But the Israeli Chief of State
was critical of some aspects of
British policy in the Middle East.
"There is at times a tendency to
ignore the basic facts of life in the
Middle East and an unwil-
lingness to break away from
traditional approaches," he said.
He suggested that many who
deal with the Arab-Israel conflict
suffer from "a lack of pers-
pective. Their whole picture is
out of focus. The correct propor-
tions are absent."
cited a tendency to over-
enphasize the Arab-Israel
conflict. If that conflict was
resolved, the main centers of
bloodshed, warfare and insta-
bility in the Moslem and Arab
worlds would still persist, he
With respect to Camp David,
Herzog said it would be tragic for
the Arabs to allow that oppor-
tunity to slip away as they had
with all previous opportunities.
Had Jordan and the Palestinian
Arabs already entered the auto-
nomy negotiations, provided for
by the Camp David agreements,
"the Palestine Arabs would now
have been living in a regime of
full autonomy and we would
by now have been in the phase of
negotiations on the final status of
the territories," he said.
The Israeli President lunched
with Queen Elizabeth II at
Windsor Castle Monday. He
invited the Queen to visit Israel,
and it is considered most likely
that his official invitation will be
accepted, at least in principle,
even if no date is set.
THE QUEEN has been
visiting Jordan, and there has
been comment in the media here
that while Jordan is the third
Arab country she has visited, she
has never been to Israel despite
the tradition of friendship bet-
ween that country and Britain.
The ommission is blamed by
some on the traditionally pro-
Arab bias of the Foreign Office.
Because the Qeen is a consti-
tutional monarch, decisions on,
and timing of, her overseas visits
are made by the government
