On Israel's 38th Anniversary
'The ties binding the State of Israel to ihe Jewish People are not
motivated by immediate needs or tangible gains but out of a sense
of common purpose and destiny.' David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973).
Ben-Gurion Nursed
The State Into Being
The simplicity of David Ben-
Gurion's grave belies the impact
of his life on the affairs of
mankind. More than any other
single person, it was Ben-Gurion
who brought the Jewish people
out of the wilderness of exile into
its ancestral homeland. Yet, at his
request, the tombstone at Kibbutz
Sde Boker in his beloved Negev
desert bears one brief epitaph:
aiak artzah 1906 ("immigrated to
Israel in 1906").
Though he was Israel's first
prime minister and his nation's
most influential politician for
several decades, the act of aliyah
remained in his own eyes the most
important deed of his life.
Thus it was in 1906 that David
Grien, with only a small knapsack
on his back, left his native Plonsk
in Russian-ruled Poland. He was
20 years old at the time and the
sixth child of Sheindle and
Avigdor Grien. His father was a
lawyer; his mother had died in his
infancy. As a teenager, the young
David became obsessed by the
dream of Zionism and determined
to settle in Eretz Yisrael.
HIS FIRST experience in the
land of his dreams was the dusty
port of Jaffa. Ben-Gurion did not
like its squalor, and he continued
on foot across the swamps and
sand dunes that today have
become the metropolis of Tel
Aviv. He eventually arrived in the
small village of Petah Tikvah,
where he found housing in a
workers' hostel and hired himself
out as a field worker.
After several years of work in
the Lower Galilee and Zichron

the humanitarian provisions
of the Helsinki Accords.
Testifying recently before the
U.S. Commission on Security and
Cooperation in Europe, Dr.
William Korey, director of inter-
national research for B'nai B'rith,
said the Helsinki pact obligates its
signatories including the Soviet
Union to "expedite in a positive
and humanitarian manner the
handling of applications for reu-
nion of families."
Korey testified that the Gor-
bachev regime's apparent public
acceptance of the baisc thesis of
the Helsinki Accords the
linkage between human rights and
security matters differs
markedly and alarmingly from
Soviet government actions.
HE POINTED out that Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev told the
recent Communist Party congress
that "resolution in a humane and
positive spirit of questions related
to the reuniting of families, mar-
riage and the promotion of con-
tracts between people and
organizations is a fundamental
Drinciple of an all-embracing
Dr. William Korey
system of international security."
Nonetheless, Korey said the
Soviet government has con-
sistently harassed, imprisoned,
and abused Soviet Jews wishing
to leave the country to be reunited
with family abroad. According to
"By 1984, the number of Soviet
Jews permitted to leave was less

than 1,000. Contrast this amount
with the 51,000 who emigrated in
1979. Soviet authorities contend
the bulk of Jewry who had wished
to leave have done so. The facts
are otherwise. More than 380,000
Soviet Jews have applied for
emigration visas. At least 11,000
other Soviet Jews have been
refused permission to leave."
plight of the refusenik is par-
ticularly excruciating. "Someone
who wishes to leave is often faced
with a loss of his job, deprivation
of academic standing, vilification
and social ostracism, imprison-
ment, and physical attack.
"This harassment," said Korey,
"stand in stark and glaring con-
trast to obligations under the
Helsinki Accords assumed by the
signatories. The Soviet govern-
ment seems to have ignored a
crucial provision of the accords
which specifies that the rights of
applicants for exit visas are not to
be modified."
Vatican Ties With Israel Next Year?
The Vatican has decided
to establish diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel and this
could happen within a year,
according to Rabbi Marc
Tanenbaum, director of in-
ternational relations of the
American Jewish Commit-
tee who has maintained
close contacts with Catholic
leaders since he attended
Vatican Council II as an
observer 20 years ago.
Tanenbaum based his forecast
on recent conversations he had
with cardinals and other church
officials in the U.S., Europe and
South America. "The question is
not whether it will happen. The
question is when and how it will
happen," he says.
In the past few weeks, at least
two cardinals told him that "the
decision has been made by the
Pope and the Vatican Secretariat
of State" to formally recognize
the Jewish State, Tanenbaum
reported. He did not identify the
the main synagogue in Rome on
Apr. 13, the first Papal visit to a
Jewish house of worship in
history. Although he made no
statement on the issue of
diplomatic ties with Israel on that
occasion, the visit raised specula-
tion that such a move by the
Vatican is imminent.
According to Tanenbaum, one
possible step would be to appoint
an apostolic delegate to Israel.
Currently there is what Catholic
and Jewish leaders regard as "de
facto" Vatican recognition of
Israel whose diplomatic represen-
tatives in Italy have full access to
Vatican officials. Formal recogni-
tion would involve an exchange of
Tanenbaum explained why the
Vatican has refrained from
recognizing Israel since its
establishment in 1948. There are
unresolved disputes over Israel's
boundaries, the rights of Palesti-
nians in the Israel-administered
territories and the Vatican's long-
standing view that Jerusalem
must be an international city, not
the capital of a Jewish State.
THERE IS ALSO, Tanenbaum
noted, the "genuine fear" of
Rabbi Tanenbaum
reprisals against Christians in
Moslem-dominated Arab states
should the Vatican recognize

Most of us do not think of life insurance as a means of making a
gift to a charitable institution.
But once the fundamental purpose of insurance has been achieved -
adequate family and estate protection it should be considered.
As a gift device, life insurance is:
Private and confidential
Workable into an annual or lifetime budget
One method of making a much larger gift than had even been imagined
Life insurance gifts are relatively easy to make. Here are some
You can buy a policy and designate the Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Community Foundation as the beneficiary and/or owner Or you
can stipulate that the Foundation receive only a percentage of benefits
(80-20, 50-50, etc.)
You can turn over a policy you already own and name the
Foundation the beneficiary and/or owner.
You can make the Foundation a secondary beneficiary. The
Endowment Fund will receive the insurance if the primary beneficiary
You can provide for a gift to the Foundation and also insure
income for life for your survivor.
EXAMPLE: Mr. Gold names the Fund as beneficiary of his policy, but he
also enters into an agreement with the Endowment Fund whereby the
Fund will provide annuity payments to his wife as long as she lives.
If you buy a policy and name the Foundation the irrevocable
beneficiary, you may then deduct all premium benefits.
If you turn over an existing policy:
1. You can deduct the current replacement value. (The Fund may wish
to continue the payments, or you may wish to do so: If you do, as pointed
out above, the premium payments are deductible).
2. If it is a paid-up policy, you get the full replacement value as a

Chaplaincy Serve Unaff dialed In South County
Friday, May 16, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page_3
'Filling The Need For Human Contact9
The para-chaplain recounted a
story of a fearful elderly man
bedridden at the Delray Com-
munity Hospital. "I took his
hand," said Shirley Phillips, "and
he pulled me down, almost on top
of him." Instantly, Phillips
recognized the fright on his face,
the desperation for human con-
tact. He couldn't speak, but as she
calmed him, he would respond to
her by blinking his eyes. "I know
you are frightened about being
here. We have a lovely rabbi.
Would you like to see a rabbi?
Would you like to have prayers
said for you? He blinked "yes,"
while continuing to shake.
"When I came out of that room,
I was spent. ... At least that day,
I had truly helped someone."
Phillips' story is typical of the
many now emanating from the ex-
panded para-chaplaincy program
implemented by Rabbi Joseph
Pollack through the South County
Jewish Federation.
Rabbi Pollack assumed director-
ship of the program in May of
1984. Coverage of both the Delray
Community Hospital and the Boca
Raton Community Hospital soon
proved too much for one chaplain.
The position was even more dif-
ficult because the hospitals did not
identify the Jewish patients for
the chaplain.
The Rabbi explained that the
majority of Jewish patients admit-
ted to the two hospitals were not
affiliated with a synagogue and
consequently, might have been
deprived of a rabbi's spiritual sup-
port when they needed it most. A
solution, as he perceived the situa-
tion, might be a para-chaplaincy
program with special training
focusing on the special needs pa-
tients have beyond those handled
by the medical staff.
Comprehensive training ses-
sions for an all-volunteer staff of
para-chaplains began later in
1984. Instruction was provided by
rabbis, psychologists,
psychiatrists, social workers and
hospital medical staff. Eight
graduates emerged from the first
training session. Twenty-three
volunteers completed the most re-
cent session in January of 1986.
Rabbi Pollack said that despite
the training program, visiting the
sick remains an individual thing,
and each person deals with pa-
tients or their families in a dif-
ferent way. "It's an awesome
responsibility, dealing with the
psyches of individuals who can be
hurt as easily as helped. One has
to develop a sensitivity to the
spoken words and the unspoken
body language of the person being
Phillip and Anne Warshafsky of
Delray Beach trained in 1984 and
work at the Delray Hospital every
Wednesday afternoon. "The rab-
bis cannot visit so many patients.
We are able to fill a void. The pa-
tients, many of whom are never
visited at all, are grateful for a
visit," said Phil Warshafsky. He
recalled a woman who was leaving
the hospital after a three-week
stay. "I'm going home tomorrow,
and it's because of you. You made
me feel so good." Now, when
Warshafsky sees her in the street,
she remains appreciative. "It's
not because its Phil Warshafsky,
it's because of the program."
Three teams of two para-
chaplains visit the Delray Hos-
pital each Monday, Wednes-
day and Friday. The hospital lists
patients bv religion and

synagogue affiliation. The teams
copy the names of the unaffiliated
and then take responsibility for a
floor. When the para-chaplains
are confronted by situations
beyond their capabilities, such as
deeply troubled patients or ter-
minal patients, they refer these
names to Rabbi Pollack.
The Boca Raton Community
Hospital provides listings of af-
filiated and non-affiliated patients
for Rabbi David Schwartz, a
retired rabbi from Williamsport,
Pa., who assists Rabbi Pollack
with the Chaplaincy program. At
present, Boca Raton Hospital
policy mandates that only ordain-
ed clergy visit the hospital. In the
past the hospital has had problems
with individuals posing as clergy,
who were there instead to act as
missionaries and fundraisers.
In addition to hospital visits, the
para-chaplains visit several local
nursing homes (even providing
shut-in visits in addition to Shab-
bat and holiday services).
Cooperation with the Hospice pro-
gram in Boca Raton and Jewish
Family and Children's Services
are other facets of the Chaplaincy
Future plans for the program
include expansion of the shut-in

program to provide visits to
private residences, and radio pro-
gramming to provide Shabbat ser-
vices for these people. According
to Rabbi Pollack, $25,000-$26,000
is being sought to institute these
services. He said that another rab-
bi will be needed, as well as
materials and special video tapes.
To date, video tapes have been
made available to the hospitals
with High Holiday and Hanukah
services to be shown on closed cir-
cuit television.
Yet, there is nothing more im-
portant about the program than
the personal contact it permits, in-

Profile of Rabbi Joseph M. Pollack
'Fate Takes 31 Years To Come Full Circle'
Rabbi Joseph M. Pollack
brought more than 20 years
of business and manage-
ment skills to the rabbinate
with him when he was or-
dained at age 44.
"What we do with our
lives helps to shape our
future," the Rabbi said. For
him, "each step seemed to
follow from the other," until
"fate..." finally guided
him to the goal which his
father had envisioned for
Last Tuesday, on the an-
niversary of his Bar-
Mitzvah, as he read his Haf-
torah, Rabbi Pollack recall-
ed his father's two main am-
bitions for him one, to of-
ficiate at his own Bar-
Mitzvah as a Hazzan, and
two, to get a smicha (ordina-
tion). He said that his father
lived only to see him preside
at his Bar Mitzvah as a can-
tor. Leon Pollack died one
and one-half years later.
Rabbi Pollack drifted for
several years after his
father's death. He gave up
religious studies, and, later,
he was not able to handle
college in those pre-war
days when work oppor-
tunities were scarce and
finances were inadequate.
At age 21, he married
Anne Mohrer, who worked
with him in a store fixture
business. They returned
from their honeymoon to
find their employer had
gone into bankruptcy. They
had no money.
The Rabbi's Many Careers
The ensuing years found
Joe Pollack feverishly try-
ing to earn a living, for
Anne and for their growing
family. "I did everything

retirement in 1976. Many of
those years in the Transit

that the work he did over
the years, "contributed to
what I do today." He cited
his position with the Transit

industrial relations. As a
hearing officer, he dealt
with people who had pro-
blems men with behavior
problems and many on
drugs and alcohol. He also
served as a chaplain for
several organizations, in-
cluding the Shalom Society,
an organization of Jewish
Transit workers, and the
Gonen Society for Jewish
Police Officers.

Then, at his wife's urging,
Joe began slowly to pursue
the road to the rabbinate. In
1949, at age 33, he started
to sing again as a cantor. A
year later, he began studies
to become a mohel (one who
performs the circumcision),
and at age 39, he started to
study for the rabbinate.
It was a reawakening of
feelings instilled in him by
his father, he said. With his
wife's urging, self-
fulfillment had begun and
culminated in ordination in
October of 1960.
Still, it was not until 1953
that he was able to assume a
full-time position as a can-
tor, first in Baldwin, N.Y.
and later in Queens Village,
N.Y. through 1975.
Meanwhile, in 1974, the
Pollacks purchased a vaca-
tion home in the Deerfield
Century Village complex. In
1976, he decided to retire.
Shortly thereafter, he
received a letter from Rabbi
David Berent of Temple
Beth Israel in Deerfield, re-
questing assistance in of-
ficiating there. From 1976

No Limits?
It's time to take another look at Joseph Sobran, the syndicated
far-right columnist whose opinion pieces appear in some 67 major
newspapers throughout the country.
Last year during the Bitburg affair, Sobran attacked the
American Jewish community for opposing the Presidential visit
to the German war cemetery. He derided Jews for their concern
about Bitburg noting that "you would think (President Reagan)
had called Elie Wiesel 'Hymie.' He called Martin Peretz, owner
of the New Republic a "bearded Jewish McGovernite" and he
described a party given in honor of the magazine as being "as
Jewish as Fiddler on the Roof." Sobran also stated that his view of
Nazi war crimes was that "bygones were bygones." As for the
State of Israel, Sobran despises it and the "Jewish lobby" which
applies "political pressure" on its behalf.
In short, young Sobran has quite a record when it comes to
Jews (not to mention women, blacks, Italians and others he enjoys
smearing). Still, his latest syndicated outburst deserves special
mention because in it Sobran demonstrates that he is not merely
someone who doesn't much like Jews. He also gives evidence of
adhering to a classic, almost European-style anti-Semitism.
Sobran's subject was the Pope's visit to a Rome synagogue, a
spectacle that clearly dismayed the columnist. Sobran was offend-
ed by the Pope's "capitulation" to the Jewish view that Christian
Europe has 2,000 years of persecution of Jews to live down. Not
so, writes Sobran. "Millions of Jews chose to emigrate to Chris-
tian Europe. They lived there for centuries." He concedes that
European gentiles were "sometimes hostile to Jews" but then
suggests that such Christian anti-Semitism pales compared to
Jewish bigotry toward Christians.
Sobran then sets out to prove that Jews have always treated
Christians badly. For instance, he says that "some rabbinical
authorities" held "that it was permissible to cheat and even kill
gentiles." (Really, Sobran, which "rabbinical authorities"?) He
says that Jews have always thought of Christians as "stupid";
that they deride Jesus Christ; and that they have practiced 2,000
years of anti-Christianism. He contends that the only reason we
hear more about "Christian anti-Semitism" than about Jewish
racism is because "Christians have been self-critical." Jews are
The most novel aspect of Sobran's diatribe is his amazing view
that "Christian philo-Semitism" is more significant than Chris-
tian anti-Semitism. The proof of that, he says, is "the long Jewish
presence in Christian Europe.. ."
Interesting. There was, in fact, a long Jewish presence in
"Christian Europe" which basically ended when 6,000,000 Euro-
pean Jews were sent to gas chambers. (That was during that
Holocaust which Sobran dismisses as just another "bygone.")
However, for some 1,900 years before the Nazi period, Jews in
Europe were victims of thousands of pogroms and anti-Semitic
outbursts. Some of these attacks had their origins in secular or
state-sponsored anti-Semitism. Many more (like the Crusades and
the Spanish Inquisition) were religiously inspired attacks on
Jews. There were openly anti-Semitic popes, Martin Luther, the
founder of Protestantism, became an unabashed anti-Semite who
called on Christians to attack Jews. Pope John Paul II knows that.
That is why he visited the Rome synagogue. Sobran knows that
too. He just doesn't give a damn.
It is hard to know how best to respond to a guy like Sobran.
After all, neither American Jews nor most American Christians
have much experience with his type. America is a country without
a widespread anti-Semitic tradition. For Americans, Sobran is a
throw-back to another time, another place. The one question
worth asking is why respectable magazines like the National
Review and the American Spectator, and good news chains like
the Hearst press print his stuff. Isn't anything beyond the pale
anymore? Is every bigot who can string a sentence together en-
titled to a place on an editorial page? Aren't the newspapers that
run Sobran's views giving them tacit endorsement by not spiking
a particularly offensive column? There are dozens and dozens of
good provocative columnists to choose from. Why run this guy?

Israel cannot give up the northern two-thirds of
the West Bank, "because only by holding the
passes of Samaria can vou have time to mobilize."
said Tehiya Party founder and Knesset member
Yuval Ne'eman. And without time to mobilize, the
state can be destroyed.
It is not generally realized that "there are two
Israels. The pre-mobilization Israel is very weak"
a state of 3.5 million Jews protected by a small
standing army, Ne'eman said in a recent
Washington-area speech. On its borders or not far
beyond are hostile Arab states with 1.2 million
men under arms.
Only by being able to mobilize men up to 50 years
of age more than 10 percent of the total Jewish
population and waging war with the leadership
and technical ability born of fighting with its back
to the wall, has Israel triumphed. If Syria and
Egypt had been able to launch the 1973 Yom Kip-
pur War from the pre-1967 borders instead of from
the Golan Heights and Suez Canal, Ne'eman said,
Israel might not have had the 48 hours necessary
to absorb the blows, mobilize and counter-attack.
Even now, a civilian car can drive from the Jor-
dan River bridges to Tel Aviv in an hour-and-a-
half, he said. "I suppose a Jordanian or Iraqi tank
driver could do it in three hours they don't know
the way." Regardless of ideology, Ne'eman said,
"that's the basic worry."
So the question is, should Israel stay as con-
queror or as settler, returning to what was part of
western Palestine before 1948 and part of Eretz
Yierael for millennia? Ne'eman and Tehiya
now with five seats in the Knesset in opposition to
the Labor-Likud national unity government
believe Israel should increase the number of set-
tlers in the territories from the current 50,000 to
at least 100,000 as soon as possible.
A military presence alone would not suffice, he
said. Referring to the U.S. base in Cuba, Ne'eman
argued that "Samaria is about a million times
more essential to Israel than Guantanamo is to the
United States. Without it we could be annihilated
before we were able to complain to the UN."
A leading physicist and former Minister of
Science and Technology, Ne'eman was in
Washington for a conference on nuclear terrorism.
He noted that "in such scenarios, Israel is a prime
target." Even without hypothetical threats, the
Middle East already spawns many conflicts.
Ne'eman cited Arab world clashes, including the
Iraq-Iran war, the coup in South Yemen, the civil
wars in the Sudan and Lebanon, Libya's incursion
into Chad, and the war between Morocco and the
Algerian-backed Polisarios as proof that Israel
cannot rely on "a promise and a signature." It can
give "peace for peace," but not "territory for
An opponent of the Egypt-Israel treaty,
Ne'eman said that "we made a deal they couldn't
keep." Jerusalem returned the Sinai peninsula to
Cairo for the promise of normal relations. "But no
Egyptian ruler could do that and survive ..
Egypt cannot normalize relations," he asserted,
since in the Arab world, "anti-Israel hate is still
the only unifying thing."
Tehiya stayed out of the unity government "to
have a free hand, and prod the Likud to implement
the program of settlement," Ne'eman explained.
A recent poll, completed after the riotous Herut P-
arty convention this year, gave Ne'eman's group
10 seats. Such a showing would make it the third
largest party after the Labor alignment and the
Herut-Liberal coalition of Likud.
Ne'eman lamented the damage the Arab baiting
by Meir Kahane has done to the "nationalist
right." He said that Kahane's approach not only
dehumanizes Arabs a technique which Jews
have experienced and must oppose but also
gives ammunition to critics of the right.
However, he noted that over 500,000 of the 1.3
million Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza Strip
hold refugee papers and argued that under any
peace, agreement they should be absorbed by Arab
countries the way Jews from Arab lands have been
absorbed by Israel. But "the rest will stay and hold
onto their Jordanian passports."

The End of Deterrence
Another Word On 'Star Wars'
Friday. May 16,1986
Volume 8
7 IYAR 5746
Number 20
It is not just the current arms
negotiations that appear
uncertain but the doctrine that
has kept the world on edge, and at
nuclear peace, for 40 years now:
Deterrence. Where once a defense
against nuclear weapons was con-
sidered simply unworkable, and
almost all strategic thinking about
The Bomb centered on how to
deter its use, now the emphasis
shifts to the defense, and more
military planners assume that
nuclear weapons will be used.
Assumptions in military strategy
have a way of turning into reality.
That possibility is a lot more
unsettling than the diplomatic
jousting in Geneva.
When Ronald Reagan first
unveiled Star Wars like a Coming
Attraction, he made it sound like
the end of war, not the world:
"What if free people." he asked
on March 23, 1985, "could live
secure in the knowledge that their
security did not rest upon the
threat of instant U.S. retaliation
to deter a Soviet attack, that we
could intercept and destroy
strategic ballistic missiles before
they reached our own soil or that
of our allies?"
It may have sounded like the
millennium had arrived till one
wondered how Americans would
feel if positions were reversed and
the Soviets were able to perfect
such a defense. To turn around
the President's rhetorical ques-
tion, "What if the Soviets could
operate secure in the knowledge
that their security did not rest
upon the threat of instant retalia-
tion to deter an American attack,
that they could intercept and de-
stroy strategic ballistic missiles
before they reached Soviet
targets?" Imagine the American
Paul Greenberg
reaction. It might not be entirely
different from the slightly
hysterical reaction of the Soviets
to American plans for a Star Wars
There was never a clear line bet-
ween offensive and defensive
weapons in military strategy and
in the nuclear age. the best of-
fense may be a defense. The side
with an effective defense may be
the one most tempted to take the
offense, confident that it is in-
vulnerable. The doctrine of
/ua^'J A,89ured Destruction
t P 8nort) ha8 been a Power-
ful deterrent in the past, and as it
fades, so does deterrence.
Not that the United States is
the only superpower developing a
strategic defense initiative. Any
such impression is a tribute to
Soviet disinformation and
American gullibility. The United
States may actually be playina
catch-up m this department. Ever
since the 1960s, Soviet scientists
have been researching exotic
defenses against nuclear weapons
high-energy lasers, particle-
beam weapons, radio-frequency
weapons, kinetic energy weapons.
. The Soviets are no slouches at
science. Don't let the state of their
consumer economy fool you. What
their military wants, their
military tends to get.
Nor have the Soviets confined
their researches to the lab. The
latest slogan in Red Square, and
therefore everywhere in the stan-
dardized world of Soviet politics,
is: Stop the Militarization of
Space! But the. Soviets began
militarizing space some time ago.
Since 1971, they have been laun-
ching killer satellites that, without
achieving full orbit, could still
destroy American reconnaissance
In 1984, the Soviets conducted
about 100 space launches, an
estimated 80 percent of them for
military purposes, while the U.S.
was launching about 20 in all. The
Soviets may be on the verge of a
space-based missile system; two
new boosters under development
capable of lifting thousands of
tons into space should be ready by
the latter part of this decade.
Soviet space stations could serve
as combined observation posts
and firing centers. And these are
but a few of the ominous
developments of Soviet science,
which somehow always seems to
have a military application.
The technology of both sides
may be outracing thought about
its strategic implications; and
some of that technology is beginn-
ing to make deterrence sound old

17,000 Have Paid With Lives for Israel's Independence
Israel celebrated its 38th an-
niversary of independence on
May U.
A children's playground
deep in the Jerusalem
Forest. A symposium on the
subject of cotton-growing. A
Torah scroll in a southern
synagogue. An annual prize
for fostering Arab-Jewish
relations. The common
denominator of these
diverse items and hundreds
of others is their dedication
to a fallen soldier of Israel:
each bears the name of a
son, brother, husband or
father who died while defen-
ding his country.
It is safe to say that no nation
honors and commemorates its
dead as do the people of Israel. A
people with a traditional respect
for human life ("he who saves one
soul is as if he saves a whole
world"), whose annals are filled
by exile, pogrom and the
Holocaust, is bound to be par-
ticularly sensitive to life, suffering
and death. And in a country
which, since its inception, has
known several wars and no real
peace, there has been ample op-
portunity to demonstrate this
SINCE November, 1947, some
17,000 of the nation's sons and
daughters have paid with their
lives in "official" wars, isolated
incidents or terrorist attacks. The
respect rendered them and the
finesse of feeling toward the
bereaved first become evident by
the manner in which their death is
communicated to their families.
There is no impersonal telegram
or letter.
A specially-trained army
representative, usually a member
of the peer group of the deceased,
plus two or thre civilian
volunteers, one of whom is often a
bereaved person himself, first
check the medical status of the
parents or widow and question
neighbors about any special pro-
blems which may exist within the
family. Only after all the relevant
facts become known to them, do
the bearers of the sad tidings ap-
proach the survivors.
Israel honors its sons in a varie-
ty of ways. The Commemoration
Unit of the Department of
Rehabilitation at the Ministry of
The details of the battle are not apparent, but the
message is clear. This unique torch is a symbol of
remembrance for Israel's fallen soldiers.
Defense has been publishing two
series of books: "Yizkor," with
systematic biographies of all who
have fallen, and "Scrolls of Fire,"
containing the prose and poetry,
scientific writings, paintings,
photographs and other creative
works of the boys whose lives
were cut short.
"When I peruse these books,"
said Prof. Urbach, a bereaved
father, who is president of the
Israel Academy of Science and
Humanities, "I see what the peo-
ple of Israel has lost."
deputy department director, is
working on a literary memorial
called "On Behalf Of and On the
Way to the State." The book deals
with the pre-state fallen during
the years 1860-1947: those who
fell in active service with the
Jewish Brigade, Hashomer, Nili
Etzel and the like, and those who
lost their lives in incidents such as
the explosion on Ben Yehuda
Street and those who perished on
the way to Israel from Yemen,
Syria and Europe.
More than 700 group and in-
dividual monuments stand as
silent witnesses to a nation's long
memory. Numerous settlements
bear the names of defenders.
Mishmar Hashiva commemorates
the seven who fell in 1947 accom-
panying a food convoy to besieged
Jerusalem. Halamed Hay
remembers the 35 defenders of
Gush Etzion. Public parks, books
on various subjects, buses to
transport handicapped children, a
high school club of radio hams:
each brings home the message
that a young person, strong, and
often wise beyond his years, lived
in the community, attended the
local school, read, played and
died before his time.
Through the years, family and
friends have published a total of
some 3,200 memorial books of
writings by and about their dear
ones. Kibbutznik Yehuda Ben
Horin who. during the Six-Day
War lost both of his sons on the
same day, recently presented the
Tel Aviv University with a gift of
a 1,700-volume library he
gathered on the subject of grief.
In Israel's close-knit society,
every soldier is considered kin. It
is thus fitting that one of the most
important and joyful holidays, In-
dependence Day, is immediately
preceded by Remembrance Day.
THE VERY dear price for
Israel's existence is marked in of-
ficial commemorative ceremonies

Amal Nasr-El-Din
Israeli Druze, in Likud Party, Unique Among Members of Knesset
Amal Nasr-El-Din is a
man of unusual political opi-
nions. Indeed, he is unique
among Knesset Members in
so far as he is the only non-
Jewish deputy in the Likud,
representing the Herut fac-
tion, which is associated
with strident and militant
Jewish nationalism.
But Nasr-El-Din sees no con-
tradictions in being a Druze and a
member of the Herut movement.
"The Druze living in Eretz Yisrael
signed a covenant with the Jews
even before the state was
established in 1948," he says.
"Therefore, the aims of Israeli
Druze and Jews are the same. We
share common hopes and fears.
And so it is no problem for me to
identify with all aspects of Herut
ideology and all of the move
ment's policies."
INDEED, Nasr-El-Din's views
on virtually every topic concur
with the more moderate wing of
the Herut leadership. He believes
in the Jewish right to settle in all
parts of Judea, Samaria and Gaza
and does not want to see Jorda-
nian sovereignty over any part of
the West Bank. He does not ad-
vocate outright annexation of the
administered territories but
wants to see the introduction of
autonomy as outlined in the Camp
David accords signed with Egypt.
The Golan Heights is a subject
close to his heart because the
15,000 Druze who live there are
popularly seen in Israel as a
disgruntled group who support
Syria. "This is not the case," he
stresses. "Ask them off the record
whether they prefer Israeli or
Syrian rule, and I can guarantee
each person will tell you that they
prefer Israel. But they are scared
to speak out publicly because they
fear that one day Israel will give
back the Golan as they gave back
Sinai. We must reassure them
that the Golan Heights will always
be a part of Israel."
Nasr-El-Din himself comes from
Daliyat el-Carmel, a village near
Haifa which is the largest Druze
settlement in Israel. Born in 1928,
he is a lifelong member of the
Herut movement, having served
as chairman of the local Druze and
Arab branch of the Herut party
and one of their representatives
on the local workers' council,
before he entered the Knesset in
1977. He is chairman of the local
Association of Families of Fallen
Soldiers and is particularly proud
of the prowess of Druze soldiers in
the IDF.
THE MK regrets that Israel's
Arab minority is unable to serve
in the IDF, but feels that under
the circumstances this is not
possible. "Israeli Arabs see
themselves as part of the Arab
world," he states, "and unfor-
tunately many Israeli Arabs iden-
tify with the PLO. Clearly it
would not be appropriate for them
to serve in the Israeli army."
Nevertheless, Nasr-El-Din
asserts that Israeli Arabs, Druze
and other minorities are equal
citizens of Israel as written in the
Proclamation of Independence.
"We minorities are equal," he ex-
plains, "except for the Law of
Return which allows only Jews to
emigrate here. But then, the Jews
are entitled to their state in their
ancestral homeland. That is only
Nasr-El-Din agrees that Arab
and Druze municipalities and

Edward Bobick Looks to the Next Generation
Edward Bobick has served as
Chairman of the Tuition
Assistance Program for the Day
School during the past three
years. "The importance of
educating the next generation of
American Jews is of the utmost
importance for the survival of
world Jewry," he says.
Bobick is also a firm advocate of
the Federation's policy to provide
a Jewish education for every child,
regardless of financial ability.
The busy attorney, who spends
countless hours each week with
the day school, had high praise for
Day School Chairman, Arnold
Rosenthal. He spoke of the
privilege it is to work with a per-
son so devoted to Jewish educa-
tion and the Day School.
In recognition of his devotion to
the Day School, Bobick was
presented with the Award for
Distinguished Service to the
South County Jewish Federation.
Peter Weisman Aids School With Legal Assistance
Peter Weisman, a former trial
lawyer and a former professor of
law in Washington, D.C., was ask-
ed to intercede when the question
of the legality of Federation's
games operation erupted.
As the parent of a second
grader at the South County
Jewish Community Day School,
Weisman knew that the games
operation comprised a substantial
part of the school's growth
budget. He also knew that this
was a critical transition period for
the school "a seedling school en
route to becoming a major
With the assistance of attorney
Richard Lubin of West Palm
Beach, the defense was shaped.
The resultant ruling vindicated
the Federation and the Day
School from any wrongdoing and
the Games were declared
"perfectly legal."
Weisman insisted much of the
credit for the successful deter-
mination belonged to the
dedicated Federation leadershp
who impressed the court ably with
facts. "With this kind of dedica-
tion, both the Day School and the
Jewish community at large will
become noted nationally."
Weisman was also the recipient
of an Award for Distinguished
Service to the South County
Jewish Federation.

More Answers To Common
Questions On Estate Planning
Editor' Note: We continue our
column with commonly asked
questions in regard to estate
Craig Donoffis past president of
the Greater Boca Raton Estate
Planning Council and practices
law in Boca Raton. This column is
edited by Marvin A. Kirsner on
behalf of the Jewish Community
Foundation's Legal and Tax
Q.: My daughter has been
divorced twice and is a spend-
thrift. She trusts everyone and is
very naive. How can I protect her
and my estate after death?
A.: You will have to leave your
estate in a trust fund for the be-
nefit of your daughter. The terms
of the trust will provide a monthly
income for her and that the
trustee can invade the trust p-
rincipal for her health and sup-
port. Make sure you name an ob-
jective and independent trustee
who knows how to handle
investments and your daughter.
Consider a bank and a close
relative to be trustee.
Q.: I want to make a Florida
will. Is there such a thing as a
checklist for drafting a will?
A.: Your will is the product of
careful planning and reflects your
desires for disposition of your pro-
perty. The following checklist
stresses important steps to take
when drafting your will:
1. Calculate your net financial
2. Identify yourself and the date
of the will.
3. Name a personal
4. Make specific gifts and iden-
tify the people/institutions who
will receive them.
5. Make general bequests.
6. Divide and distribute the
residuary estate.
7. Compensate for the possibili-
ty that a designated beneficiary
might not outlive you.
Q.: I would like to disinherit my
son. I only see him when he needs
or wants my money. Must I in-
clude him in my will?
A.: No. in Florida, children are
not entitled to inherit an estate if
you don't want to provide for
them. You cannot disinherit your
spouse unless you have a prenup-
tial agreement.
Q.: Is estate planning necessary
A.: Many people have taken the
attitude that the unlimited marital
deduction enacted in 1981 is the
total answer to all their estate
planning needs. Many, therefore,
fail to consider what happens
when the surviving spouse dies.
The possible resulting large tax
liability can hurt your children
and/or other heirs. To protect
these heirs, each spouse should
consider making use of the unified
credit provisions of the Act. They
might leave a portion of their
estate to someone other than their
spouse or to a trust which can give
that spouse income but leaves
those assets to their heirs. In addi-
tion, before they make use of the
larger annual gift-giving abilities
enacted in 1981, they should be
very careful not to give away so
much of their assets that their
standard of living might suffer.
While each situation is different,
everyone should discuss these con-
cerns and possible divisions of
their estates in this manner with
their attorney.
Q.: I would like to know
whether I need an attorney to
prepare mv Last Will and Durable
Craig Donoff
Family Power of Attorney?
A.: The answer is YES. It is
almost impossible for you to be
able to prepare the above
documents by yourself. Form
books usually create problems and
never accomplish their purpose.
Consult a lawyer and ask him
what he will charge you.
Q.: I have a bank account with
$65,000 in it. It is in my name "in
trust for" my husband. Does it
avoid probate upon my death?
A.: Yes. You have established a
Totten Trust, which avoids pro-
bate upon your death. Your hus-
band will receive the money upon
your death by presenting a death
certificate. If you become disabl-
ed, he will not be able to get to the
money. Consider a Durable Fami-
ly Power of Attorney, which will
give him the right to use the
money if you become disabled.
Q.: My assets are all in my
name. My husband has had a terri-
ble stroke and has lost his
memory. We have a condo and
have enough to live on with sav-
ings and social security. However,
if I had to put my husband in a
nursing home, it would drain me
of everything I own. How should I
prepare myself?
A.: Consider putting all your
assets in your individual name in a
Living Trust. If the assets were n-
ot transferred to you within two
years of your husband going into a
home, then your husband's social
security and welfare would
support him.
Q.: What annual gift tax exclu-
sions are available to a donor of a
A.: A donor can give up to
$10,000 ($20,000 if the donor's
spouse joins in the gift to a third
party), in cash or other property,
to each donee in each calendar
year free of gift tax. However, to
qualify for exclusion, the gift must
be one of a "present interest,"
i.e., one in which the donee has
unfettered immediate use, posses-
sion and enjoyment.
Q.: Does a Power of Attorney
terminate upon disability?
A.: A Power of Attorney which
is not a "Durable Power of Att-
orney" terminates upon disability.
A Durable Power of Attorney, by
its very definition, survives and
continues and is not affected by
subsequent disability or incapacity
of the principal.
Q.: I recently put all my
securities, worth $135,000, in my
name and my son's. It this a tax-
able gift?
A.: Generally, when property is
purchased with the funds of one
party and the property is titled
jointly, a completed gift is made.
An exception to this is the titling
of property jointly between hus-
band and wife (which because of
the unlimited marital deduction is
not a taxable event) and the titling
of joint bank accounts.
Released Terrorists Renew Activity
TEL AVIV (JTA) Many of
the terrorists who were released
in the POW deal last year
among the 1,150 terrorists freed
in exchange for three IDF soldiers
have returned to terrorist ac-
tivities and have been involved in
serious acts of sabotage, accor-
ding to a security source quoted
by Davar Sunday.
The source noted that some 600
of these terrorists reside in East
Jerusalem and Judaea-Samaria.
They organized while they were
still in prison.
The source was critical of the
deal by which they were released,
saying that anyone who thinks it's
possible to keep tabs on 600
released terrorists is deceiving
the public, since such terrorist ac-
tivity can't be detected in ad-
vance. However, the source said,
the security forces know about
this activity and are dealing with
Some of the released terrorists
have been arrested for taking part
in terrorist activity and a few
have been deported. The security
source said that the involvement
of the released terrorists had been
discussed at the highest political

collecting these letters and com-
memorative envelopes, and has
recently published them, because,
as he says, "Jews everywhere owe
Israel's fallen the same debt." In
his publication, Dr. Smalheiser
recalls that the practice of lamen-
ting the deaths of warrior heroes
goes back to biblical times when
David grieved over the deaths of
Saul and Jonathan:
"And they wailed and wept and
fasted until even, / for Saul and
Jonathan and his son, and for the
people / of the Lord and for the
House of Israel / because they
were fallen by the sword."
Smalheiser traces the develop-
ment of the themes in the com-
memorative covers, which range
from the acceptance of death to
the proud celebration of military
victories to the expression of a
hunger for peace a reflection,
he believes, of a similar develop-
ment in the popular mood in

'Holocaust Didn't Happen,'
Why Remembering Is Important
Gail Rigler, a member of the
Board of Directors of the Second
Generation of Holocaust Sur-
vivors, was helping to set up an
exhibit on the Holocaust in the
Rotunda of the Cannon House Of-
fice Building when she was ap-
proached by a woman.
"Why are you all doing this ex-
hibit?" Rigler quoted the woman
as saying. "We all know the
Holocaust never happened."
"And that's exactly the reason
why we are all here today," Rigler
said at a ceremony marking the
opening of the exhibit which runs
through Friday, "to explain not
only that it did happen but that it
needs to get remembered."
The need to remember was also
stressed by the other participants
in the ceremony, Carol Lister,
New York regional director of the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, and Rep. Charles Schumer
(D., N.Y.), who sponsored the
''If the Holocaust is
remembered, if the Holocaust is
never forgotten, it will not happen
again," Schumer said. He noted
that this was the first time a
Holocaust exhibit had been
displayed at the Capitol and it
opened just one week before Yom
Hashoah was observed on
The exhibit includes posters
depicting pictures and other
documents from the entire Nazi
period, 1933-1945 provided by the
It also includes pictures taken
by American soldiers who
liberated the camps at Dachau,
Flossenburg, Buchenwald,
Ohrdruf and Mauthausen, which
are part of the archives of the
Center for Holocaust studies in
Brooklyn, N.Y. Tuesday (Apr. 29)
was the 41st anniversary of the
liberation of the Dachau concen-
tration camp by American forces.
Rigler, who represented the
Center, said the pictures were
taken by "individual soldiers who
felt the need to document what
they had seen, to prove that the
atrocities indeed did take place."
Schumer said that it is hoped that
long after the exhibit, its memory
"stays with members of Con-
gress" as well as visitors to the

Ben-Gurion Nursed Israel into Being
Continued from Page 1
Ya'acov, Ben-Gurion came to
Jerusalem, joining the editorial
staff of the Labor newspaper
Ahdut. The following year, he
went to Turkey for university
studies, hoping to influence the
Turkish establishment into sup-
porting the Zionist cause. But, in
1917, the Turkish rule of Palestine
was defeated by the British, and
the subsequent Balfour Declara-
tion made Jewish statehood seem
In that same yer, Ben-Gurion
married Paula Munweis, a New
York nurse, while on a fundrais-
ing visit to America. After a spell
in the British office of the Poalei
Zion labor organization, Ben-
Gurion returned to Eretz Yisrael
to be elected secretary general of
the newly formed Histadrut Trade
union Movement in 1921. He held
this post for 14 years, as the
Histadrut became the political
force that was to mold Israel's
economy, and then served as
chairman of the Jewish Agency
Executive from 1935 to 1948.
WHEN THE UN voted to parti-
tion Palestine, it was Ben-
Gurion's initiative that led to the
decision to declare independence
on the day of partition. The
following year saw elections to the
first Knesset with Ben-Gurion of-
ficially becoming Prime Minister.
He also held the post of Minister
of Defence and thus helped nur-
ture the Israel Defence Forces in-
to the formidable fighting force
that it was to become.
Ben-Gurion remained Prime
Minister until December, 1953,
when he retired to settle in the
desert at Sde Boker. In 1955, he
was recalled to government,
resuming the role of Prime
Minister in November. He remain-
ed in office until 1963, when he
once again resigned.
In retirement, Ben-Gurion re-
mained involved in the controver-
sies of the Mapai party he was in-
strumental in founding. He broke
with his party in 1965, forming his
own Rafi party along with Moshe
Dayan, Shimon Peres, Yitzhak
Navon and Teddy Kollek.
Although living in Sde Boker, he
retained his Knesset seat and re-
mained active until his death in
Peres Says He Wants
Legal Info on Waldheim
Premier Shimon Peres said
Sunday he has instructed
the Justice Ministry to col-
lect all information pertain-
ing to the allegations con-
cerning Austrian Presiden-
tial candidate Kurt
Waldheim's war-time ac-
tivities as a Wehrmacht of-
ficer and to conduct a
thorough legal analysis of
the charges against the
former UN Secretary
"We are not a newspaper, we
are not an institution," Peres
declared in an address to students
from development towns meeting
at the Hebrew University. "We
are a government. We must give
an answer both serious and
substantiated. And if indeed the
legal material which we collect
and analyze proves that Kurt
Waldheim served in the Nazi army
and acted against partisans or
Jews, we shall draw from this all
the appropriate conclusions."
WALDHEIM, whose Presiden-
tial campaign has been dogged by
allegations that he participated in
Nazi war crimes, missed victory in
the election Sunday and will face a
run-off election on June 8.
Waldheim, the candidate of the
conservative People's Party,
received 49.66 percent of the vote
against 43.66 percent for his
Socialist rival, Kurt Steyrer. A
vote of 50 percent or more is re-
quired to avoid a run-off.
Israel has remained cautious in
the Waldheim matter, although it
did request and received last
month a file on Waldheim from
the archives of the UN War
Crimes Commission. Waldheim
has denied participation in
atrocities against Yugoslav par-
tisans, although he conceded
knowledge of such actions by the
Nazis. He died knowledge of the
deportation of Greek Jews from
Salonika and elsewhere while he
was an intelligence officer in the
Israel Defense Force radio
reported Monday that if
Waldheim is elected President of
Austria, the Foreign Ministry will
delay the dispatch, of a new Am-
bassador to replace Michael Elit-
zur, the present Ambassador in
Vienna, who is due to end his term
of service there this summer.
This, the radio report said, would
be done to avoid the presentation
of Israeli credentials of a new Am-
bassador to a head of state with a
past linked to the Nazis.
MEANWHILE, several hun-
dred youths demonstrated outside
the Austrian Embassy in Tel Aviv
Monday, pointing out that they
were protesting on the eve of Yom
Hashoah against the election to
the Austrian Presidency of a man
with an alleged Nazi past.
Perhaps Ben-Gurion's most bit-
ter disappointment was that so
few Jews emigrated to Israel, par-
ticularly from the United States.
At first adamantly opposed to the
notion that the Diaspora had a
future after Israeli independence,
he grudgingly accepted the status
quo, whereby Diaspora Jewry saw
its principal role as lending Israel
financial, political and moral
Gurion is often censored for not
having respected the culture of
the Oriental Jews. This stems
from the fact that he frequently
referred to the hundreds of
thousands of immigrants who
poured into Israel as "dust." This
seemingly derogatory term was
meant in a poetic sense, alluding
to winds blowing the exiles back
to their homeland.
"Most important, Israel is not
just an Eastern nation or a
Western one," he once said. "It is
both. In itself, it invites the two
great streams of the Jewish peo-
ple: the Ashkenazim, whose tradi-
tions are Western, and the
Sephardim whose cultural links
are with the East. Here is another
task of Israel: to marry the East
with the West and thus again to
serve as an example of unity and
brotherhood to all mankind."
Ben-Gurion envisaged the idyllic
with apocalyptic overtones,
although he was not a religious
man. But clearly he was no idle
dreamer. If Theodor Herzl con-
ceived Israel, it was Ben-Gurion,
the leader of the Labor move-
ment, who nursed the state into
being with painstaking devotion.
No other single individual has
more influence in the formation of
the State of Israel.

AIPAC Decision Not
To Lobby Against Saudis
When the American-
Israeli Public Affairs Com-
mittee (AIPAC) decided last
March not to lobby against a
proposed missile sale to
Saudi Arabia, the un-
doubted relief it brought the
Administration was match-
ed by vexation from some in
the Jewish community.
Failure to oppose an arms sale
to a country that bankrolls the
PLO and Syria and refuses to en-
dorse Israel-Arab peace negotia-
tions sends a wrong signal both to
the Administration and to the
Arab world, the critics say.
Others have agreed with the
AIPAC reasoning that expending
energy on a battle against arms
already in the Saudi arsenal and
which Israel itself has not con-
sidered sufficiently threatening to
warrant a bitter campaign against
their sale, would unnecessarily
cause tension with the Ad-
ministration just when
U.S.-Israeli relations are at an un-
precedented high.
INSTEAD, they say, attention
must be focused on the important
battle ahead protecting aid to
Israel for fiscal year 1987 from
the unpredictable swings of the
Congressional deficit-cutting
For one Jewish organization
preoccupied with U.S. and Israeli
defense, the AIPAC move was a
step in its direction. The Jewish
Institute for National Security Af-
fairs (JINSA), a conservative
group that advocates a strong
American defense, has long main-
tained that some battles against
arms to Arab countries are better
left unfought.
A main argument for selling
weapons to the Saudis has often
been the need to show U.S.
"evenhandedness" in the Middle
East in order to lure Arab coun-
tries into the peace process,
JINSA's newsletter, Security Af-
fairs, observed in a recent issue.
But it added that to really pur-
chase Saudi loyalty would take "a
lot more (weapons) than we have
to sell."
editorial maintained, "There are
other, more realistic reasons to
sell some weapons at some times:
we do not want to see the fall of
the Saudi royal family; we do not
want the oil fields in radical
hands; we do want the Saudis (and
others) to defend themselves in
the event of an Iranian attack; we
don't want to use U.S. troops ex-
cept as a last resort."
"Our overall position on arms
sales is that you can't say they're
all bad," Shoshana Bryen,
JINSA's executive director, said
in an interview.
On the other hand, she stressed,
there should be pressure for the
adoption of measures ensuring
that those weapons remain in the
right hands.
Take the shoulder-fired Stinger
missiles included in the current
Saudi package. "I would go one
step beyond AIPAC and I would
be looking for that guy who would
put a rider on the sale," said
The possession of Stinger
missiles in Saudi Arabia, she
stressed, does not hold out the
danger to Israel that the same
weapons pose in Jordanian hands.
The problem with Stingers, she
said, is that "the Saudis have a
tendency of losing things."
TO ENSURE that arms destin-
ed for the Saudis do not end up
elsewhere, as they have in the
past, a rider on the Saudi package,
said Kryen. might include the con-
ditions under which the arms
would be stored in Saudi Arabia
and who can have access to them.
Perhaps it would involve keeping
the Stingers under the guard of
U.S. military personnel.
The strategy of challenging
every Arab arms sale in its entire-
ty, maintained Bryen, resulted in
the 1981 sale to the Saudis of
racks and refueling tankers for
Saudi F-15 fighter jets part of
the controversial AWACS
package tlat represent a far
greater threat to Israel's security
than the AWACS planes.
"We said the mistake in the
AWACS was in the Jewish com-
munity," Bryen said. "It was our
opinion then and still is that there
was no way ever to have defeated
that sale."
RATHER THAN fight the un-
winnable battle which lost to
the Administration by just a few
votes after months of bitter cam-
paigning AIPAC and Jewish
organizations here would have
done better to support a move by
the late Sen. Henry Jackson (I).,
Wash.) to limit the sale to
AWACS alone, Bryen maintain-
ed. The Carter Administration
prevented the defeat of its propos-
ed sale of F- 15s to Saudi Arabia in
1978 only by promising that they
would carry solely defensive
The bomb racks and fuel
tankers have already been
delivered to the Saudis, while the
AWACS are scheduled to be sent
following submission to Congress
of the President's certification
that the Saudis have provided
"substantial assistance" to the
United States in promoting peace
in the region.
The condition was adopted by
Congress m 1985 on the basis of
Presidential commitments. Sen.
Alan Cranston (D., Calif.), who is
leading the Senate fight against
the Saudi arms sale, had said he
will oppose delivery of the
AWACS as well.
JINSA'S differences with
AIPAC on strategy notwithstan-
ding, the organization, which just
celebrated its tenth anniversary,
in many ways reflects the growing
emphasis in both the Jewish com-
munity here and among U.S.
policy-makers on mutual defense
interests in the Middle East as the
basis for a strong U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship a shift helped along by
a Republican Administration that
views its interests in
predominantly East-West terms.
JINSA's officers include its vice
president Morris Amitay, a
former director of AIPAC, and its
secretary, Stephen Rosen,
AIPAC's director of research and
The seeds of JINSA were sown
with the Yom Kippur War of
1973, which led a group of conser-
vative American Jews to conclude
there was a dual need for a
defense-minded Jewish organiza-
tion: to persuade the Jewish com-
munity of the necessity of a strong
U.S. defense, and to press the
case for Israel as a U.S. strategic
asset inside the American defense
THIS WAS a time when resent-
ment is said to have been fester-
ing in the military over a perceiv-
ed hostility by many Jewish
legislators toward the budgetary
needs of the Pentagon at a time
when massive quantities of
American weapons were being
shipped off to the Jewish State.
"It developed that so many of
our Jewish compatriots, whose
hearts had bled, as ours had, at
the slender thread by which the
fate of Israel was decided in those
crucial days and weeks (of Oc-
tober, 1973) those very same
people, all too many of them
had not been as supportive as they
should have been of the
strengthening process of the
United States military forces in
the many years preceding 1973,
and many of them had a kind of
mindset which was very difficult
to change," said Herbert Fierst,
JINSA's chairman of the board, at
a recent 10th anniversary dinner.
The dinner featured the presen-
tation of JINSA's fourth Henry
Jackson Distinguished Service
Award, named after the late
Democratic Senator from
Washington who is remembered
as a major spokesman for national
defense issues and a strong sup-
porter of Israel.
THE AWARD, whose three
previous recipients were Jackson,
former U.S. Ambassador to the
United Nations Jeane
Kirkpatrick, and Rep. Jack Kemp
(R., N.Y.), was presented this
year to Sen. Rudy Boschwitz (R.,
Minn.), a member of JINSA's
Board of Advisors.
Also honored at the dinner was
JINSA's first president and cur-
rent U.S. Assistant Secretary of
State for Human Rights, Richard
"The fact is that whereas
around ten years ago the word
defense caused people to look at
you askance, that isn't the case
any more, and there's increased
recognition in the Jewish com-
munity of the United States of the
need for a strong American
defense," Schifter observed.
Without a doubt, JINSA has
established itself in Washington.
With a membership of some
15,000 and a network of valuable
contacts in the Pentagon, it will
soon be represented in the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations.
ITS BIG events are the annual
"fly-ins" of members for assorted
defense-related tours and brief-
ings with military officials, and an
annual trip to Israel for American
admirals and generals.
In a general sense, the group is
a like-minded complement to the
less-focused National Jewish
Coalition, a recently-formed
Jewish organization that grew out
of a group of Republican Jews

Israel Defense Soldiers Wounded
Israel Defense Force soldiers
were wounded, none seriously, in
a clash in the eastern sector of
south Lebanon last week in which
two terrorists were killed.
Military sources said the inci-
dent occurred when an IDF patrol
spotted what its commander
described as apparent infiltrators
moving with stealth near Shouba
village in the foothills of Mt.
The patrol opened fire and fire
was returned causing the
casualties. Equipment and food
supplies found near the bodies of
the dead men indicated that they
were on either a terrorist or an
intelligence-gathering mission.
The sources said IDF units have
recently foiled several infiltration
attempts by the Syria-supported
Palestine Liberation Organization
dissidents led by Abu Moussa.
Meanwhile, the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA)
reported that five of its men were
wounded in a clash with terrorists

this summer is "Camp Maccabee
your ticket to a summer of fun"
and, judging by the response of
the community it's the hottest
ticket around. .
With two months to go to the
opening, Camp Maccabee is com-
pletely filled for its first four-week
session, and only limited spaces
are available for the second
This Summer's Camp Maccabee
offers the most dynamic and
diversified program ever:
New this year is a boating pro-
gram at Tradewinds Park;
Tumblebees will be coming to
Campus to do a gymnastics pro-
gram; Separate Music and Drama
specialties have been added to the
Program; The Swim Program will
feature the finest Instructors
Special events will abound, with
the Fantasy Fun Factory on June

Again, this Summer, Camp
Maccabee has planned to have an
Israeli shaliah to enhance its Sum-
mer Program and give our campe-
rs the opportunity to learn more
about Israel and Israeli culture
through informal talks, programs,
music, and games.
Camp Maccabee is more than a
ramp, more than a brief adven-
ture. It's a special world designed
for the child. It's a world of
freedom insulated in positive rein-
forcement, a world of fun mixed
with responsibility; and it's very
much a world of companionship
and doing things together as well
as one of individual achievement.
Camp Maccabee is a ticket to a
summer of fun and through the
pages of "The Floridian" we will
give you a first-row seat for all the
fun and activity happening on the
Baer Campus. Watch for more
news in the issues to come.

by the Anti Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, makes Nebraska the
12th state to enact such legisla-

Israel Wants Renewed Autonomy Talks
Israel is interested in
renewing its talks with
Egypt on autonomy for the
Palestinians in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip and to
bring other participants into
the negotiations, Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
said here Saturday at a
special press briefing for
Israeli correspondents.
He said the other participants
could include Jordan and Palesti-
nian representatives who are not
associated with the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Shamir made a brief stopover in
New York enroute to Central
America for a four-day visit. "I
believe that the most realistic ap-
proach to advance peace in the
Middle East is by resuming
negotiations in the framework of
the Camp David accords," Shamir
said in reply to a question by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
HE ADDED, "Camp David is
the only tangible achievement for
peace so far in the Middle East."
He noted that Israel has invited
Jordan to negotiate for peace
without pre-conditions. "As far as
we understand Jordan, she is
reluctant to join in negotiations on
Yitzhak Shamir
her own. She seeks partners for
those negotiations. Unfortunate-
ly, we can't provide partners,"
Shamir said.
He said, nevertheless, that he
thinks the peace process is still
alive in the Middle East because
talks between Israel and Egypt
are still taking place and there
are, as well, "contacts with
Thatcher Scheduled To Visit
Israel At End of the Month
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher of Britain is tentatively scheduled to visit Israel
May 24-27. It will be the first visit ever by a British Prime
Minister to Israel. Thatcher will hold talks with Premier
Shimon Peres and other officials.
Shamir said in reply to ques-
tions that there will definitely be
"a problem" if former United Na-
tions Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim is elected in Sunday's
Presidential elections in Austria.
Waldheim is accused of participa-
tion in atrocities as a Wehrmacht
officer in the Balkans during
World War II.
SHAMIR SAID there would be
a problem with Israel's relations
with Austria should Waldheim
become that country's President.
"We don't like to interfere in
other countries' elections but
when it comes to the Nazi pro-
blem, we as a Jewish State cannot
be indifferent," he said. "It is
clear that there will be a problem
if Waldheim is elected but I don't
want to say now what we will do.
When the results are in, we will
Shamir described the relation-
slip between Israel and the U.S. as
one of "trust and understanding
and friendship." The Likud
leader, who will replace Shimon
Peres as Premier under the rota-
tion of power agreement next Oc-
tober 14, said he did not anticipate
any "meaningful changes" in
Israel's foreign policy when he
becomes Prime Minister.
He noted in that connection that
he is bound by the coalition agree-
ment and the basic guidelines of
the unity government. He said he
expects that the rotation of power
will take place as planned.
SHAMIR'S FIRST stop on his
Central America tour was in Hon-
duras where he opened the Israeli
Embassy in Tegucigalpa. Unitl
now, Israel was represented by a
non-resident Ambassador. The
new Embassy represents an
upgrading of diplomatic relations
between Israel and Honduras.
He also met there with Presi-
dent Jose Ascona Hoyo. Shamir
then visited Guatemala for a
discussion of economic coopera-
tion with President Vinicio Cerezo
Arevalo and other officials. His
final stop was in Costa Rica, to at-
tend the inauguration of Presi-
dent Oscar Arias Sanchez. Israel
has always had close relations
with Costa Rica which is one of
the few countries that moved its
Embassy from Tel Aviv to
Donny Maseng, international singing sensation, wiU perform

South County Jewish Federation.
PERES MEANWHILE received the President of
Uruguay, Dr. Julio Maria Sanguinetti, who arrived here
from Cairo last Thursday accompanied by his wife and a
large party of Uruguayan Cabinet ministers and members
of parliament. Mrs. Sanguinetti heads the Uruguay-Israel
Friendship Society.
The South American leader, here on a five-day State
visit, conferred with Peres on Friday. He and his wife were
guests at a dinner given in their honor by President Chaim
Herzog Thursday night. Sanguinetti observed on that occa-
sion that there is no prospect for peace in the Middle East
as long as the parties directly involved deny Israel's right
to exist and its right to secure, recognized borders.

There has been a dramatic
decrease in the criticism of Israel
by the People's Republic of China,
and there are even unofficial rela-
tions between China and Israel,
but there has been no change at
the official level regarding possi-
ble establishment by China of for-
mal diplomatic relations with
The assessment was presented
by Dr. Yitzhak Shichor of the
Hebrew University's Department
of East Asian Studies at an inter-
national workshop on China and
Japan held at the university's
Harry S. Truman Institute for the
Advancement of Peace.
THE CHINESE press is now
reporting about events in Israel
more objectively and with less
hostility than previously, he said.
There has also been a change in
*hat they say about Israel's right
'" exist, he noted.
This was never denied in the
Past, but now Chinese officials are
supporting this right openly and
even talking about a just, all
round solution to Middle East pro-
blems, which will also take Israel
into consideration, said Shichor.
Shichor also noted that China
has recently become the greatest
supplier of weapons and military
spare parts in the Middle East,
and one of the reasons for China's
lack of interest in diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel is that it does not
want to harm the military and
strategic relations which have
been so carefully cultivated with a
number of countries in the Middle
DR. BEN-AMI Shillony of the
Hebrew University's Department
of History surveyed Japan's at-
titude toward Israel and the Mid-
dle East. Not having any great
power ambitions, Japan is in-
fluenced by three main factors
with regard to the Middle East: its
dependence on Middle Eastern oil,
its pro-Western orientation, and
its view of the Soviet Union as its
main potential enemy.

He was asked to assume a
similar position at Temple Beth

Raton, through which position he
had the opportunity to meet Rabbi
Bruce Warshal, executive director
of the South County Jewish

Warshal urged him to fill the
Chaplaincy vacancy. In May of

fashioned. Strategic thinkers
begin to consider the use of
nuclear weapons in new and im-
aginative ways; the once sharp
line between conventional and
nuclear strategy begins to fade. In
Soviet military theory, the line
may not have been that sharp to
begin with, since Russian
strategists have never abandoned
their basic approach to war no
matter what weapons are involv-
ed. They are still disciples of
Clausewitz and his theory that
war is but a form of diplomacy and
maybe vice versa.
The same trend can be seen
among Western theorists; a rece-
nt issue of Foreign Affairs in-
cludes one article ("When Deter-
rence Fails") that argues in favor
of replacing deterrence as the
essential goal of nuclear strategy
with "war termination," since a
nuclear war is now probable
enough that thinkers must shift
their attention from preventing
nuclear war to stopping it once it
breaks out. Another article in the
same issue ("Nuclear Strategy")
argues that "we must disenthrall
ourselves of the dogma of consen-
sual, mutual vulnerability the
notion that unrelieved
vulnerability of the U.S. and the
Soviet Union to each other's
nuclear forces is essential for
halting the competition in offens-
ive arms, and is the best
guarantee against the outbreak of
nuclear war."
Instead, the author argues for
"technological development to
make effective defensive systems
possible for the United States and
our allies." The very basis of the
old deterrence the mutual
vulnerability of both sides,
whether consented to or not is
fading fast in the minds of
strategic thinkers, which means it
may soon fade in practice.
That's a pity. However terrible
the mad prospect of Mutual
Assured Destruction, it has
managed to keep the nuclear
peace for these 40 years. The
potentialities and possibilities of
nuclear horror are now being
explored in new "defensive" ways
that may make the offensive use
of such weapons more likely. No
one in particular is to blame; the
seemingly inevitable, headlong
rush of technology has simply car-
U.S. Optometrists Start Drive
For First Optometry School
Israel has no university-related
School of Optometry. True, there
are some 450 persons in Israel
providing vision care (excluding
ophthalmologists), despite the
absence of an optometric law. One
hundred are American, British, or
Canadian-trained, and 100 are
European-trained, but 250 of
those providing vision-care have
no formal training.
"It was in light of these facts
that the American Friends of
Israel Optometry approached Tel
Aviv University to request that
they undertake the joint venture
to establish Israel's first
university-related School of Op-
tometry," stated Dr. Milton Eger,
a retired optometrist living in
Deerfield Beach. Eger is vice
president of American Friends of
Israel Optometry and former
editor of the Journal of the
American Optometric
Dr. Irwin Borish, Benedict Pro-
fessor of Optometry at the
University of Houston and Dr.
William Baldwin, Dean of the Op-
tometry School at the same
university, joined Eger in presen-
ting Optometry's case in Israel.
They were pleased when Tel Aviv
University, Israel's largest in-
stitution of higher learning, made
a commitment to establish a four-
year diploma program leading to a
Master's degree, if American op-
tometry could endow the pro-
gram. Before the first students
are enrolled, $500,000 in cash
must be raised, with $2 million be-
ing raised before the first
students graduate.
American Friends of Israel Op-
tometry have joined forces with
the American Friends of Tel Aviv
University to develop an interna-
tional fund-raising campaign
among worldwide optometry and
the optical industry.
Dr. Eger announced the ap-
pointment of local optometrists
who have agreed to spearhead the
fund-raising efforts in South
Florida: Helping Dr. Eger
organize the campaign in South
Florida are Dr. Jack Solomon of
Fort Lauderdale and Dr. Michael
Margaretten of North Miami
"It is my hope that the local
community of Jewish op-
tometrists will recognize the op-
tometric needs in Israel and come
forth with their support. Of
course, the School would welcome
contributions from anyone,"
stated Dr. Eger. "We have the op-
portunity to guarantee proper vi-
sion care for all of Israel's future
On May 18, Israel Independence
Sunday, Dr. Paul Klein and his
wife Regina will host a reception
for Dr. Borish, the world-
renowned pioneer in optometric
education. Guests will hear a first-
hand report on the establishment
of the School of Optometry at Tel
Aviv University.

the effort toward the establish-
ment of the school should call

ned the world into the next phase
of the arms race, the next room of
the nightmare and it may prove
a far less stable environment.
There are now fewer supposed
certainties (such as the
assumption that the use of nuclear
weapons must mean the end of the
world) and more terrible choices,
possibilities, breakthroughs. The
next stage of thought about what
was once unthinkable is not likely
to be held back either by the
strategic Luddites whose
answer is simply to ban or freeze
nuclear weapons nor old-style
thinkers who still contend that
nuclear strategy begins and ends
with deterrence.
The old balance of nuclear ter-
ror was simple compared to the
new Rube-Goldberg mix of offen-
sive and defensive systems now
taking shape in the minds of scien-
tists and strategists, and
therefore soon enough in the
world. It may still be possible to
maintain deterrence but that goal
will be much more complicated in
a Star-Wars world. Some strategy
of survival besides deterrence
needs to be invented, and soon.
Albert Einstein used to say that
nuclear fission had changed
everything in the world but the
way men thought about it. A new
way of thinking about nuclear war
is clearly in the offing; a new way
of thinking about nuclear peace is
needed to cope with it, before it is
too late.

villages receive less funds than
their Jewish counterparts.
However, he claims that this is
because Arab and Druze mayors
and leaders are not entirely com-
petent in administering those
funds. "The gap is closing quick-
ly," he says. "Today, Arab
villages receive perhaps 20 per-
cent less than Jewish villages.
And we are educating the Arab
leadership all the time. In five
years time there will be budgetary
Nasr-El-Din says he has never
felt any anti-Arab discrimination
from within Herut and claims that
that movement's reputation for
chauvinism is a myth. "On the
contrary," he stresses, "Herut is
the party that is most generous
towards the Arabs. That's a well-
known fact. Herut gives the
Arabs ten times the money that
the Labor party does for projects
like schools and community
centers, because we know how im-
portant these facilities are."
NASR-EL-DIN has a penchant
for statistics that are convenient
multiples of ten. For example, in
recalling the Lebanon War in
1982, he justifies the govern-
ment's decision to advance to
Beirut but is critical of the fact
that a pact was not signed with
the right-wing Druse Arsalani
"Jumblatt represents only 10
percent of the Lebanese Druze,"
claims Nasr-El-Din. "Yet he has
90 percent of the weapons.
Jumblatt is Syria's man. But
Israel could have armed the Ar-
salanis, and together with the
Jemayals they could have kept
control of Lebanon."
This is the lone criticism that
Nasr-El-Din will make of Herut's
deeds and policies. To many of his
fellow Arabs and Druze he is an
exception, although he claims that
many Arabs and most Druze sym-
pathize with his stand a claim
that is unfortunately impossible to
verify with statistics.
