'Unclean Women'
Ordered Not To Attend Funerals
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israeli women
are outraged by a ban imposed by the rabbis
of Migdal Ha'emek against women attending
funerals on grounds that they may be
"unclean" and therefore responsible for the
abnormally high number of deaths in that
town recently.
Women attending a funeral there last week
were ordered by officials of the burial society

Report Says
Black 'Hebrews' Cause Wide Concern
PALM BEACH Two
American "Black Hebrew"
sects, both claiming to be
"true descendants" of the
Biblical Israelites, are caus-
ing widespread concern
because of their anti-
Semitism and anti-white
racism, according to a
report issued here by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
The report, made public at a ses-
sion of the League's National Ex-
ecutive Committee meeting Feb.
12-14 at the Breakers Hotel here,
documents the activities and
background of the Miami-based
Yahwehs and the African Hebrew
Israelite Nation of Jerusalem,
headquartered in Chicago.
BOTH SECTS claim that their
lineage goes back to Abraham,
who they say was black. They re-
ject the legitimacy of the State of
Israel, proclaiming themselves to
be the rightful inheritors of
Jerusalem and the Holy Land. The
Chicago group seeks to establish a
presence in Israel.
Burton S. Levinson, national
chairman of ADL, said that
neither is in any way connected
with the thousands of black Jews
of Ethiopian origin who have been
resettled in Israel and are fully ac-
cepted as Jews.
Levinson cited these examples
of the anti-Semitism and racism of
the Yahwehs and the African
Hebrew Israelite Nation of
Jerusalem.
The Yahwehs insist that
blacks are the real "Chosen Peo-
ple" and label Jews as "im-
posters" who represent the
"Synagogue of Satan."
Yahweh leader Moses Israel
charges that whites are "muta-
tions of the original black man"
and are "evil, wicked liars and
murderers" who practice "false
white Christianity."
The literature of the African
Hebrew Israelite Nation of
Jerusalem describes Jews as "sin-
ful, white Jewish dogs."
An official of the Chicago
group interviewed last December
by Spotlight, the publication of
Liberty Lobby, the leading anti-
Semitic organization in America,
called for an "alliance" between
his organization and "whites in
America ... to end Zionism."
The leader of the African
Hebrew Israelites, Ben Ami
Carter, has stated that he main-
tains a "close dialogue" with
LouisFarrakhan, the anti-Semitic
leader of the Nation of Islam; Far-
rakhan, who has called Judaism a
"dirty" religion, has said that he
and Carter have "shared beliefs."
THE ADL REPORT said that
the leaders of both black Hebrew
groups claim to be either the
Messiah or God and invoke the Old
and New Testaments in an at-
tempt to support their anti-
Semitic and black supremacist
views.
Each of the two sects is said to
have several thousand followers,
largely recruited from poor urban
neighborhoods. Their leaders de-
mand strict obedience and loyalty
and have advocated that their
followers commit mass suicide
should they be threatened by
authorities.
The Yahwehs, a multi-million
dollar organization with
businesses and real estate in
Florida's Dade and Broward
Counties, operate from a head-
quarters in Miami called the Tem-
ple of Love.
According to the ADL report,
they claim to have set up
"temples" in 22 states and the
District of Columbia since their
founding in 1979. Rallies in New
York, Kansas City, St. Louis and
Chicago in recent years have
drawn audiences ranging from
1,500 to 3,000 persons.
The Yahweh leader is a 52-year-
old Oklahoman who used to sing in
asserted that the "white man with
his tricks must be removed" and
has gone on to threaten American
black leaders who do not subscribe
to his beliefs. One of his newslet-
ters states that "Yahweh is warn-
ing all blind, false black leaders

Israel Denies (Again)
Role in Transfer
Of Funds to Contras
Friday, February 13, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
By DAVID LANDAU
GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel flatly denied Sunday
that it had any role in or
knowledge of the transfer of
funds from the U.S.-Iran
arms deal to a Swiss bank
account maintained for the
Nicaraguan rebels known as
contras.
The statement was in response
to allegations in a Senate commit-
tee report that funds for the tran-
saction were placed in an "Israeli
account" in Switzerland from
which it was transferred to
another Swiss bank account con-
trolled by retired U.S. Gen.
Richard Secord who handled aid
to the Contras at a time when
Congress banned such aid.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
received over the weekend copies
of the report of the Senate Select
Committee on Intelligence releas-
ed earlier in Washington.
SHAMIR'S SPOKESMAN,
Avi Pazner, said in a prepared
statement that the monies from
the Iran arms deal were paid "by
the Iranian representative direct-
ly into the account specified by the
Americans and no sum of money
transferred by the Iranians re-
mained in Israel's hands or went
through Israel or its
representatives."
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, in an Army Radio inter-
view, categorically denied that
Israel had sent weapons to the
contras. But the newspaper
Maariv quoted senior security
sources as saying that after in-
tense lobbying by Lt. Col. Oliver
North, a National Security Coun-
cil aide subsequently dismissed,
Israel agreed in October, 1986 to
send a shipment of several hun-
dred Soviet-made rifles to the
contras.
According to Maariv, the ship-
ment was recalled before it reach-
ed its destination because the Iran
arms deal had been exposed.
Maariv on Friday published
what it said was the number of the
account at the Credit Suisse bank
in Geneva where the U.S.
deposited funds from the Iran
arms sales for diversion to the
contras.
THE NEWSPAPER claimed
that the account, No. IS 386430,
was registered under the name
"Lake Resources" and served for
transferring money to suppliers of
various services, including the
Israel Defense Ministry. The ac-
count was administered by Secord
and North, Maariv reported.
The immediate reaction here to
the report by the Senate Select
Committee was that it was lacking
in important details because
several key American witnesses
had refused to testify.
The Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee is ex-
pected to take up the matter later
this week. Committee chairman
Abba Eban said that the commit-
tee would have to investigate all
aspects of the Iran arms deal to
determine exactly what Israel's
role was in the affair.
Israel has maintained from the
outset that it acted solely as an in-
termediary at the specific request
of the Reagan Administration to
help secure the release of
Americans held hostage by pro-
Iranian elements in Lebanon.
ACCORDING TO Defense
Ministry sources, members of the
U.S. National Security Council
asked Rabin several times that
Israel sell arms to the contras, but
Rabin absolutely refused. The
Maariv report quoted senior of-
ficials as saying that "Oliver
North drove us crazy with re-
quests to supply weapons to the
contras."
The first American request was
directed to Rabin when he visited
Washington in May, 1986 by Col.
North, then a member of the NSC.
Others were present at the
meeting and minutes were taken,
Maariv reported.
Rabin is reported to have turned
down the request a second time
when he was in Washington in
September, 1986. At that time,
North made a specific request to
transfer captured Soviet weapons
to the contras. Minutes were also
taken at that meeting.
Rabin replied that he would not
transfer weapons to the contras
but would be willing to consider
the transfer to the U.S. of cap-
tured Soviet weapons to do with
them what they pleased, Maariv
reported.
THE REPORT went on to sa>
that North claimed the Congres-
sional ban was about to be lifted
which it was in October, 1986. He
agreed that the transfer to the
contras would be done through
him and not directly by Israel.
He noted that Israel was known
to possess many Soviet rifles, and
North asked that they be given to
him to be sent to the contras.
Rabin asked for payment for the
weapons, but North pleaded he
had no funds.

accepted if Israel knew at the time
tha( North was transferring funds
from the Iranian arms purchases

tras. But Israel did not have this

knowledge and Rabin and others
at the meeting, among them the
Prime Minister's adviser on
counter-terrorism, Amiram Nir,
accepted North's statement. For
two weeks, North called Nir
almost daily to have him urge
Rabin to transfer the rifles.
Rabin finally agreed, and the
rifles were loaded aboard a ship at
Eilat. Israel did not accept pay-
ment. The ship sailed for a

destination determined by North

reaching its destination, accor-
ding to the report published in
Maariv last week.
The Maariv report on the Swiss
bank account said it played a cen-
tral role in the first and second
Nimrodi.
ABOUT $1 MILLION were
deposited in the account, ap-
parently for 504 TOW anti-tank
missiles transferred from Israel to
Iran. The Maariv report said it
was unclear why this money was
received by the Americans. Senior
sources here said this and other
aspects of the deal's financin re-
main "unexplained blank spaces."
The matter resurfaced after
Washington and Jerusalem decid-
ed at the end of December, 1985
to halt the deal. But Israel took
the initiative to revive it, at the in-
sistence of Nir. He proposed to
the Americans that they attempt
to exchange Shiite prisoners held
by the Israel-backed South
memorandum for the resumption
of contacts with Iran for Presi-
dent Reagan. Reagan approved it
on January 17, 1986. The
memorandum concerned the
direct supply of American
weapons to Iran with Israel serv-
ing only as a point of transship-
ment and as so-called "special
envoys."
NIR'S TRIP WITH American
emissaries to Iran in May, 1986
was approved in advance by
Shamir, Peres and Rabin after
consultations with security of-
ficials, Maariv said.

deal totalled about $6.9 million of

laws of family purity made them unclean, and
their presence at funerals together with men
was therefore undesirable. They were allow-
ed to visit the grave only after the men had
left. These included not only friends but the
daughters, granddaughters and sisters of the
deceased woman.
Tova Lichtenstein, adviser on women's af-
fairs to the Minister of Religion, protested the
ban. "Men and women were created in the
image of God and should be treated equally,"
she argued. Rabbi Pinhas Peli, a professor of
Jewish studies at Ben-Gurion. University, in
an Haaretz interview Tuesday, accused the
Migdal Haemek rabbis of "a primitive and
paganist approach."
ACCORDING TO the rabbis, they were
responding to the large number of deaths
recently. "The public demanded that we do
something about all these disasters, and since
it is written in the Zohar that women's atten-
dance at funerals can cause disasters, we
decided this was the best course of action,"
Grossman said.
The Zohar, a 13th Century mystical work, is
the principal book of the Kaballah.
Masha Lubelsky, secretary general of
Na'amat, the Labor Zionist women's
organization, wrote to Religious Affairs
Minister Zevulun Hammer Monday deman-
ding an end to this "new fanatical norm."
Knesset member Shulamit Aloni of the
Citizens Rights Movement called for the
dismissal of the Migdal Ha'emek rabbis.

Our Readers Write
Critics of Condom Ads Miss the Point
'New' Protocols of Zion Goes
From Kuwait Selling in Paris
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
In reference to your story of
Feb. 6, those Jews and others who
object so vehemently to condom
ads, finding them in "poor taste,"
are apparently identifying them
with promiscuity, street sex and
homosexuality. Do they realize
that AIDS can enter their lily
white lives and immaculate homes
via other pathways besides sex
and drugs?
Innocent families may well be
affected by equally innocent
means, such as kids with AIDS
biting and scratching other kids or
persons who are carriers of the
disease but unaffected
themselves.
Granted, the condom per se is
hardly the total cure or preven-
tive, but if such simple mechanical
devices can help in any way to
save lives, their use must be
encouraged.
Haven't we Jews throughout
history been the enlightened ones,
and don't we bend the rules where
health and self-preservation are
concerned?
So let's be done with nit-picking
and face the music, which means
knowing the facts that we are
faced with an epidemic of such
proportion as to make the Bubonic
Plague and the Flu epidemic of
the 19th Century look like running
noses.
Let us instead put our shoulders
to the wheel and quickly put
health and sex education into the
curricula of our schools,
Jewish Leaders
To Study
Convent
At Auschwitz
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) West
European Jewish leaders
are due to meet this month
with a high-ranking Catholic
delegation to try to find a
compromise solution to the
future of the Carmelite con-
vent erected on the site of
the Auschwitz death camp.
The meeting, which will be held
in Geneva, is to be attended by
four Cardinals: Cardinal Fran-
ciszek Macharski, who heads the
Crocow Diocese; Cardinal Jean-
Marie Lustiger, Archbishop of
Paris; the Archbishop of Belgium;
and the Cardinal of Lyon who
nominally heads the French
Catholic Church. It will be the se-
cond such meeting since last
summer. '
JEWISH COMMUNITIES in
Western Europe, and particularly
in Belgium and France, are pro-
testing against the very presence
of the convent on the site where
more than three million Jews
were murdered. The Catholic
Church, on the other hand, claims
that the presence of the convent
and the prayers of the dozen
Catholic nuns who live there
should be seen as an act of
penitence for World War II
crimes.
A three-man French Jewish
delegation left Paris for Poland at
the invitation of Macharski, whose
See covers the Auschwitz camp
site. Macharski also attended the
first Geneva conference on this
subject, and two weeks ago visited
Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
The delegation consists of

school. Only then will we be doing
something constructive for
ourselves and for future
generations.
Anything less than this, in the
schools where children are a cap-
tive audience, is just whipping a
runaway horse with a feather.
DR. LUCILLE GOLDMAN

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
In a recent issue, you reported
on the free distribution of Jewish
Braille Institute Talking Books of
Jewish interest. Congregation Kol
Yisroel Chaverim gladly
cooperated with the Jewish
Braille Institute which is the prin-
cipal sponsor of this important
service to the blind.
It has come to our attention that
a mistaken inference may have
been made from the wording of
the release that funds for the pro-
ject are made available through
Congregation Kol Yisroel
Chaverim. Our Synagogue has
nothing to do with the funding of
this service, and we salute those
kind-hearted benefactors who
have made this project possible
through the Jewish Braille
Institute.
Our Synagogue is always
available to publicize significant
Jewish efforts that can make
Judaism more meaningful to all
our people. This has been our pur-
pose in bringing the JBI Talking
Books to the attention of your
readers. We did not mean, in any
way, to give the wrong impression
about the funding.
The Jewish Braille Institute is
to be congratulated for providing
this Jewish service to the blind.
Thank you for your cooperation
and understanding.

PARIS (JTA) A new version of the Protocols of
the Elders of Zion, the "classic" of anti-Semitic literature,
is currently on sale in Paris. The French edition was
printed in Kuwait shortly after the Yom Kippur War and
includes a foreword explaining that its "publication is now
considered necessary, even imperative."
THE BOOK IS ON VIEW in several bookshops in
predominantly Arab areas in the north of the city and is
sold for 60 Francs ($10), a relatively low price for its size.
Several Jewish organizations reportedly plan to lodge
formal complaints as the Protocols infringe on French
legislation which makes it illegal to spread racial hatred or
contribute to religious prejudice.

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Rep. Sala Galant Burton (D.,
Calif.), one of two Jewish women
members of Congress, died Sun-
day of cancer. She was 61 years
old.
Burton was elected to the house

and 1986. When she was unable to

Shamir Wants
Lavi Data
For Trip Here
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
visit to Washington this
month has imposed a
deadline on senior defense
establishment officials to
come up with recommenda-
tions about the future of the
Lavi, Israel's second
generation jet combat
aircraft.
The officials are studying
several American alternatives to
the Lavi proposed by U.S. Assis-
tant Secretary of Defense Dov
Zackheim when he was here last
month. The Reagan Administra-
tion expects a firm decision from
Shamir when he meets President
Reagan at the White House.
A TEAM OF experts from the
McDonnell Douglas company, a
leading American manufacturer
of military aircraft, was here last
weekend to promote alternatives
to the Lavi. They reportedly
presented the Israelis with a
choice between the F-16, F-18 and
the Harrier, all advanced flying
machines.
These are under study, and a
report will be submitted to
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
within the next few days, to serve
as a basis for the case Shamir will
present in Washington.
The U.S. has been pressuring
Israel for a year to abandon the
American-financed Lavi on
grounds that it is too expensive to
produce. Israelis have disputed
the Pentagon's cost projections.
Menahem Eini, head of the Lavi
project, has estimated that each
Lavi fighter will cost some $18
million, plus 51 percent for spare
parts. An F-16 would also cost
about $18 million, but spare parts
would be between 65-80 percent
above the base price, Eini said.
to the 100th Congress, the House
passed a resolution allowing her
to be sworn in at her home. The
oath was administered the next
day by Rep. Don Edwards (D.,
Cal.), chairman of the California
delegation.
Burton was bom in Bialystok,
Poland, and fled with her parents
to the United States in 1939 ahead
of the Nazi occupation of Poland.
She said she learned from this ex-
perience that "politics is
everybody's experience.'"
She grew up in San Francisco
and represented a San Francisco
district in Congress. In the House,
Burton continued advocating the
liberal policies of her late hus-
band. She was also a strong ad-
vocate for the cause of Soviet
Jewry.
Tony Award-winner Judd
Hirsch and his co-star Cleavon
Little, make their long-awaited
South Florida debut when they
premiere Herb Gardner's Tony
Award-winnnig Best Play of 1986,
"I'm Not Rappaport," on Tues-

ciana Playhouse in Palm Beach.

U.S., Israeli Delegations Discuss Building of VOA Transmitter in Negev
Former National Security Ad-
viser Robert McFarlane took
an overdose of Valium pills
early Monday morning just
hours before he was scheduled
to appear before the Tower
Commission, the panel ap-
pointed by President Reagan to
investigate the role of the Na-
tional Security Council in the
sale of arms to Iran, the part
Israel played in the sale and
the diversion of funds through
Swiss banks to aid the contra
rebels in Nicaragua. Police
ruled the overdose a suicide
attempt.

which $6.7 million was transfer-
red to the Defense Ministry which
later paid $3 million to the U.S.
and at least $500,00 to Ghor-
banifar. An additional $600,000
was paid to "moderate" elements
in Iran, and $1 million was
transferred to the U.S. Swiss
bank account.
The report of the Senate Select
Committee said that according to
testimony and documents it
received, Israel had a strong in-
terest in promoting contacts with
Iran and reportedly permitted
arms transfers to that country as
a means of furthering its
interests.
A series of intelligence studies
in 1984 and 1985 cited in the com-
mittee's report indicated Israel
shipped non-U.S. arms to Iran as
early as 1982 and Israeli mid-
dlemen were used to arrange
private deals. According to the
report, Poindexter's testimony
confirmed the intelligence studies.
The report cited Secretary of
State George Shultz's objections.
He is quoted as having warned the
then National Security Adviser,
Robert McFarlane, that Israel's
agenda regarding Iran "is not the
same as ours" and that an in-
telligence relationship with Israel
on Iran "could seriously skew our
own perception and analysis of the
Iranian scene."

To Expand

Hapoalim is seekng to expand its

said it plays a major role in financ-

American export credit institu-

of American-made equipment by

By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
and American delegations have
successfully completed a week of
private discussion here for con-
struction of Voice of America
(VOA) radio transmitters in the
Negev, with Israel apparently
winning its point that major con-
tracts go to Israeli firms.
Yorma Alster, director general
of the Communications Ministry,
expressed satisfaction with the
agreement Sunday. Walter
Roberts, who headed the
American delegation, said more
than $300 milion would be in-
vested in the project, at least half
to be spent in Israel.
"It may very well be more than
50 percent will go to Israeli
firms," Roberts said. After legal
advisers complete drafting work
within a few weeks, Washington
will call for bids from Israeli con-
struction firms only.
The transmitters and antennas
will be built in the U.S. and ship-
ped to Israel for construction at
the Negev site. According to
Roberts, some of the electronics
work will also be done by Israeli
firms. Actual construction should
begin within a year.
The relay station, which Israel
agreed several years ago to ac-
commodate on its solid, will
transmit broadcasts of the VOA,
Radio Free Europe and Radio
Liberty. The latter two, based in
Western Europe, beam their pro-
grams to Eastern Europe.

Navy Intercepts Ship Bound from Cyprus to Lebanon
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Israel Navy intercepted a mer-
chant ship bound from Cyprus to
Lebanon last Friday (Feb. 6) and
seized 50 El Fatah terrorists on
board. A senior Naval officer said
Sunday that the action clearly
averted a series of terrorist at-
tacks and sabotage attempts
against Israel.
The 400-ton Maria R., which
flew the Honduran flag and is
owned in Lebanon, was enroute
from Larnaca to Khalde in
Lebanon. It was halted about 65
miles from the coast because it ap-
peared to be carrying far more
people than the normal crew for a
ship of that size.
THE EGYPTIAN captain of-
fered no resistance and allowed
Israeli sailors to board and search
his vessel. They questioned the
eight-member crew and the
"passengers," all of whom were
found to be carrying forged
passports. The latter acknowledg-
ed being members of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, several
of them officers in El Fatah.
They said they were carrying
medical supplies for refugee
camps in Lebanon. But no medical
material was found in the vessel.
The terrorists were transferred to
a Navy craft and brought to Israel
for further questioning. There
Students
Arrested
In Gaza
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Three Gaza high school students
were arrested Monday night for
allegedly splashing acid on a
group of girl students who refused
to join an anti-Israel demonstra-
tion. Twelve girls were
hospitalized.
The three reportedly confessed
to the incident which occurred
Sunday and divulged the names of
accomplices. The police are now
searching for them.
The students had demanded
that the girls join a demonstration
against the recent deportation of
Mohammad Yussuf Dahlan, 26,
alleged leader of the El Fatah
youth movement in the Gaza
Strip, and the fatal shooting of a
young Arab by Israeli security
forces during a riot in the Gaza
strip town of Kahn Yunis where
Dahlan lived.
As unrest continued in the ter-
ritory, enraged Jewish settlers
blocked the main highway Mon-
day at the Deir el Balah intersec-
tion to protest stone-throwing at
Israeli vehicles. They removed
barricades only after Gen. Yitzhak
Mordechai, commander of the
southern region, personally
intervened.
was no announcement about the
crew, but it is assumed the ship
was allowed to proceed.
"Assuming there are some five
members in a terrorist squad, this
has foiled a number of sabotage
attempts against Israel," the
senior Navy officer said. Israeli
officials believe that the Navy has
forestalled at least 20 sabotage at-
tempts in the last two years by in-
tercepting terrorists at sea.
ISRAEL INSISTED Sunday
that it has not established a
blockade of the Lebanese coast.
But it is watching the sea lanes
between Cyprus and Lebanon.
Last month, the Israel Navy stop-
ped two Cypriot car ferries at sea,
en route to the Lebanese port of
Junieh, on suspicion that ter-
rorists were aboard.
The seizure of 50 terrorists in-
dicated that Cyprus has become
an embarkation point for PLO
people attempting to reach
Lebanon.

ffable Consul General
Timor Has Lived Exotic Life in Eight Countries
By ALISA KWITNEY
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Like a character out of a
ohn Le Carre spy novel,
amim Timor, the new
onsul General of Israel in
iami, looks like your
verage, affable family man
til you discover that he
is lived in eight exotic
untries, lived through a
piege, been attacked by ter-
orists and seen a govern-
ment fall.
And that's not even all the
naterial that goes into the real-
lfe past of this soft-spoken man
who fought in Israel's War of
ndependence.
BORN IN 1924 in Jerusalem,
.he sixth generation of his family
be born there, Timor is a
nember of what some used to call
'the Israeli aristocracy": Jews
vho moved from Spain to
erusalem long before the State of
srael was born.
"I'm not longing for those old
ays in Jerusalem," says Timor.
We lived close, among ourselves
W- it was a very small community.
Ve all lived in the Jewish quarter
>f the old city, and to get there we
lad to pass through the Moslem
fcection.
"We lived under the constant
hreat of attack," recalls Timor.
'Whenever anything was publish-
ed about Jews from Poland or
tussia coming to Palestine,
mything that would strengthen
he Jewish presence there, there
vere threats, and they used to
lave mini-pogroms, stabbings,
tettacks.
"The British were supposed to
)rotect us, but didn't. In 1938 it
tot so bad, my family had to move
o the New City."
DESPITE THE stabbing of a
jyoung Israeli and his brother in
the Arab souk late last month,
rimor does not believe that
Jerusalem is more dangerous now
than it was back when he was a
iboy.
"Then they attacked us simply
because we were weak," says
Timor. "It's much, much safer
now in Jerusalem. In those days,
we were a minority. We don't de-
pend on British or Arab police
anymore but on our police."
Would he ever consider letting
Jerusalem become an interna-
tional city for the sake of peace
with the Arab nations?
"It wouldn't work," contends
Timor. "When Jordan had
Jerusalem, all Jews, not just
Israelis, were prohibited access to
holy places. And why should we,
who have always been persecuted
by the Christians and Moslems, do
this for them? Jerusalem is not
negotiable."
KAHAMIM TIMOR lived
through the siege of Jerusalem
during the War of Independence,
which may help explain why he
feels so strongly about not giving
the city up.
"Families literally starved. We
fought our way through so con-
voys of food could be brought in.
We were rationed to one pint of
water per person a day, and that
pint of water was for everything.
The water was from cisterns
which collected rainwater we
had no pipelines in the old
Jerusalem.
"Each family had its own supp-
ly, and that was locked and ration-
ed, which kept us from dying of
thrist, like the Arabs thought we
would."
"I lost many good friends," says
Timor.
One of Timor's good friends
who survived was Yitzhak Navon,
who was active with him in the
underground army of resistance,
the Haganah. Sixteen when he
.. we don't depend on British
or Arab police anymore ...'
joined, Timor smuggled messages
and arms, as well as keeping
lookout while the adults trained.
AT THE age of 18, Timor joined
the fighting corps as a full soldier.
His wife, whom he met not long
after the War of Independence,
was also a soldier, a sergeant in
the Central Command.
"Who would have thought that
we would fight so long for our in-
dependence?" asks Timor. "We
thought back then that in two or
three more years we would be
through with the fighting, we
would be a nation like other
nations."
IN 1956, Timor took up his first
foreign post as Israel Vice Consul
in Addis Ababa, where he served
twice.
"Ethiopia was very challeng-
ing," recalls Timor, who speaks
Amharic, the principal language
of Ethiopia, in addition to the
other seven languages listed in his
official biography.
"The-then president of Israel
begged me to do all I could to
meet with the Falashas and help
them come to Israel and study if
they wanted to, to help them in
any way I could."
"The Falashas thought for cen-
turies that they were the last rem-
nant of the Jewish nation," says
Timor. "They have all the same
major traditions, such as Yom
Kippur, Shabbat, and the Tehara
(rituals concerning the purity of
women.)"
"THEY WERE known in
Ethiopia for their beautiful and in-
telligent women. Those who had
the money wanted a Falasha wife
if she converted.
"When they stayed in their
ghettos, no one would touch them.
But if they went to school, or to
engage in commerce, they disguis-
ed themselves. Out of fear of be-
ing molested or forced, the
Falasha women would sometimes
tattoo blue crosses on their
foreheads.
"In America, people change
their last names (to make them
less Jewish-sounding.) It's the
same sort of thing," adds Timor.
If the Falasha community was
known about in Israel as far back
as 1956, why was there no large
scale Aliyah from Ethiopia as
there was from most other coun-
tries with Jewish communities?
"For many years the Rabbinate
did not arrive at a decision about
whether or not the Falashas were
Jews. Unlike the Yemenites,
another isolated Jewish communi-
ty, their links to Judaism could not
be traced. They had been out of
contact with the rest of the Jewish
world," explains Timor.
THERE HAS BEEN specula
tion that the Falashas were
originally part of an envoy from
King Solomon's court, sent to ac-
company the Queen of Sheba. Said
Timor:
"Also the Ethiopian govern-
ment of the-then emperor, Haile
Selassie did not want to let them
go and set a dangerous precedent
that members of a given minority
could just leave Ethiopia. If not
for the Rabbinate, ways and
means to bring the Falashas over
to Israel would have been found."
Whether or not the Falashas
should be converted to Judaism
before being fully integrated into
Israeli society, a question that
upsets the Falashas, who see
themselves as "original Jews,"
Timor says that he "cannot have a
personal opinion," but sees
"nothing wrong with converting
them to be on the safe side."
"ZAIR WAS difficult," says
Timor of another African country
where he served. "I was there at a
time when the tribes were
fighting each other. I presented
my credentials as Ambassador to
President Kasaboovoo, the first
and last elected president of Zair,
on the afternoon of Nov. 24. In the
evening, four hours later, Mobutu
had his coup d'etat."
But no post could have been as
difficult as Cyprus.
"Cyprus was a very tough
assignment," admits Timor. "Ar-
chbishop Macarious, the head of
the Greek church, was the head of
state as well. Cyprus was infested
with PLO agents on the one hand,
and on the other, before the Camp
David agreement, Cyprus was the
only place which served as a
bridge between Israel and the
Arab countries."
"REPRESENTING Israel
abroad is not an easy thing. There
are risks involved," says Timor.
"I was attacked by the PLO in
Cyprus. They put a bomb in my
house, and through sheer luck my
wife and daughter were on the far
outer side. The bomb exploded,
ripped the house in two, but they
escaped."
Timor's other two children were
still on their way back from
school, and Timor, whom the ter-
rorists tried to ambush and
assassinate, had taken another
route to the Israel Embassy that
day in April, 1973.
"I stayed on one and a half more
years in Cyprus as Ambassador,"
continues Timor. "After the
building was repaired, we lived in
the same apartment, to prove that
we are not afraid of the PLO."
Timor's wife and children never
complained, he says.
SO HOW does a man who has
served in places as remote and ex-
citing as Kinshasha and Lome-
Togo feel about accepting a post
in Miami?
"I had other offers, but I chose
this post. It is a challenge," says
Timor. "For a change, I have
come to a place where most of my
work is linked with Jews. I would
like some experience with the
U.S. Twenty-five years ago I
might not have come, but I want a
term of experience here."
"Florida has the fastest grow-
ing Jewish population in the
United States," adds Timor, "and
Miami is the gateway to Latin
America. I want to use my ex-
perience in Latin America to
establish contact with the Carib-
bean and Central America."
"I'm not accredited to the U.S.
government, but you could say
that I'm accredited to the Jewish
Federations," Timor points out
with a laugh.
WHAT LIES ahead for this
much-traveled man? Home
maybe.
"In three years I'll go back to
Israel, unless the Israeli govern-
ment wants me to do another job,
or I choose to do something else.
For the moment, my plans are to
go back to Israel," says the man
who claims that if he were young
and had it all to do over again, he
would become a farmer in the Ju-
dean hills or the Galilee.
So, for all the farmers who
dream of exciting travels, it may
be nice to know that a man who
has had 32 years of diplomatic ser-
vice in eight posts dreams of stay-
ing put.
Secret Deal
To Release 4
Hostages?
Continued from Page 1
issue. If anyone has an offer to
make, let him approach Israel in
an orderly manner," Peres said,
adding that Israel does not accept
ultimatums.
The reported offer by Berri to
exchange the flyer, an Israel Air
Force navigator captured by
Amal after his plane was shot
down over Lebanon last October,
raised speculation here and
abroad that a deal could be made
whereby the hostages and the
flyer would be released for the
jailed Palestinians without Israel
or the U.S. seeming to surrender
to terrorist demands.
BUT THE RELEASE of 400
convicted Palestinians would cer-
tainly have severe political reper-
cussions in Israel. The exchange
of 1,150 Palestinian and Shiite
prisoners, many convicted ter-
rorists, for three Israeli soldiers in
1985, raised a public outcry.
The government has all but
acknowledged it was a mistake
and indicated it would not be
repeated. Israeli officials insist
there has been no pressure
whatever from the U.S. for Israel
to deal with the kidnappers of the
Americans, all faculty members of
the University College in Moslem
west Beirut.
But Davar reported from
Washington Monday that secret
negotiations have been underway
for the past few days between the
U.S. and "countries in the
Mideast" in an effort to free the
hostages.

Chinese Scholar at Yeshiva U.
Prof. Gao Wangzhi of the Institute for Research on World
Religions of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences meets with
scholars at Yeshiva University in New York during the course of
his research into the Jewish community of Shanghai. The
Shanghai community is particularly well known in the Jewish
world because of the more than U00 students, faculty members,
and rabbis of the Yeshiva of Mir who escaped Nazi persecution at
the beginning of World War II, making their way across
Lithuania, through Russia and Siberia to Kobe, Japan, and
finally to Shanghai. Prof. Gao, shown here with Dr. Leo Land-
man, dean of the University's Bernard Revel Graduate School, is
conducting his research during a year-long visit to the United
States sponsored by the Appeal of Conscience Foundation.
Sexist Texts Banned in Nursery
JERUSALEM (JTA) On
the premise that sexist attitudes
are inculcated at an early age, the
Education Ministry has banned
story books from nursery schools
which depict girls as weaker than
boys, passive, and dependent on
boys to rescue them from
difficulties.
Haaretz reported that a
Ministry directive has advised
nursery school teachers not to tell
tearful boys that they are crying
"like girls." According to Shim-
shon Shoshani, director general of
the Education Ministry, "girls in
all stages of education achieve less
than boys, and the reasons are
educational and social not
biological."

labels in having become a swing
vote on critical constitutional
issues addressed by the Court. He
has drafted the Court's opinions
in landmark decisions, including
Roe v. Wade in 1973, which bar-
red laws prohibiting abortion.
A NUMBER of other national
personalities will speak to interna-
tional issues and American
domestic matters that are high on
the American political agenda and
are of prime concern to the
organized American Jewish
community.
SENATOR Paul Simon of Il-
linois, a member of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, will ex-
amine how the Senate can meet
what many see as a threat to the
Federal judiciary in the filling of
judicial vacancies during the next
two years by President Reagan.
Simon led the opposition in the
Senate last summer to the
nominations of Daniel Manion and
Jefferson Sessions.
Also addressing the issue will be
Prof. Walter Dellinger of Duke
University Law School, who
serves as an advisor to Sen.
Joseph Biden, chairman of the
Senate Judiciary Committee.
A member of the Senate Select
Committee investigating military
assistance to Iran and the
Nicaraguan Contras, Sen. Paul S.
Sarbanes will assess United
States foreign policy in the Middle
East after Iran. An Israeli
perspective will be offered by
Nimrod Novik, a key political ad-
viser to Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres.
IN ANTICIPATION of a major
debate in the Congress over
escalating sanctions against
South Africa, Ambassador Her-
man W. Nickel, former U.S. Am-
bassador to South Africa, and
Rep. Howard L. Wolpe, chairman
of the House Foreign Affairs Sub-
committee on Africa, will debate
whether escalating U.S. sanctions
against South Africa could con-
tribute to the dismantling of
apartheid.
Whether recent actions by
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
represent isolated public relations
gestures or fundamental policy
departures, and their impact on
Soviet Jewry, will be examined by
a panel of leading authorities on
the Soviet Union including
Thomas W. Simons, Jr., Deputy
Assistant Secretary of State for
European and Canadian Affairs;
Morris Abram, chairman, Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations;
and Eliyahu Essas, a former
Refusenik, once characterized as
the unofficial rabbi of Moscow,
who now resides in Jerusalem.
In joint program planning ses-
sions, the NJCRAC will take ac-
tions on these issues and other
priority concerns. These debates
will lead to the 1987-88 Joint Pro-
gram Plan which sets forth the
consensus of the Jewish communi-
ty relations field on the priority
concerns of the field.
THE CHARGE that the
American Jewish community has
become a single-issue community
will be explored by NJCRAC
Chair Michael A. Pelavin of Flint,
Mich., in his address to the
Plenum.
The four-day conference will
also include a series of concurrent
forums on the role NJCRAC
membership agencies should play
in responding to religious
pluralism in Israel, the positions
they should take on proposals for
welfare reform in the United
States Congress, and the debate
over the direction of the American
women's movement.
Workshops led by lay and com-
munity leaders have been organiz-
ed to provide Plenum participants
opportunities to share successful
program ideas and techniques for
increasing Jewish voter registra-
tion, promoting tourism to Israel,
and working with the Hispanic
community, state legislatures, the
media and interfaith groups.

At the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Tribute to
Natan Sharansky (center) in Los Angeles, at-
tended by over 2,000 toell-wishers, special
guest Simon Wiesenthal (left) flew in from
try
Vienna, and Jane Fonda (right) served as
mistress of ceremonies. Sharansky was given
the Center's 1987 Humanitarian Award.
Giant Among Men'
Sharansky Gets Wiesenthal Award
LOS ANGELES (JTA) "He com-
mands no armies, he holds no elective of-
fice. Yet his weapon, truth, has made the
mightiest of powers stand in fear." This
was how Natan Sharansky was described
by William Belzberg, a member of the
Board of Trustees of the Simon Wiesen-
thal Center, at a dinner where the former
Prisoner of Conscience was awarded the
Center's 1987 Humanitarian Award.
More than 2,000 government and community
leaders, celebrities and international personalities
attended the tribute. It was Sharansky's first ap-
pearance in the western United States.
A vital Sharansky, largely responsible for her
husband's freedom, was honored in absentia by the
Wiesenthal Center with its Woman of Valor
Award.
IN PRESENTING the award, Rabbi Marvin
State Dep 't.
Hier, dean of the Center, said, "One. day when
historians chronicle this period they shall write
that it was a woman'%s staff that split the sea, a
woman's voice that the Pharaoh heard, a woman's
sacrifice that humbled him to say, let him go let
him go."
Accepting his award as well as Avital's, Sharan-
sky spoke of his experiences in the Soviet Gulag,
the need for relentless public pressure on behalf of
Soviet Jewry, and the recent death of Soviet dissi-
dent Anatoly Marchenko. He urged that everyone
should continue to speak out for the remaining
close to 400,000 refuseniks who are still confined
within the Soviet Union.
The dinner was co-chaired by Alan Casden,
Rosalie Zalis and Belzberg, members of the
Wiesenthal Center Board of Trustees. The event
was emceed by Jane Fonda, who spoke of her work
on behalf of Soviet Jewry, and her particular
friendship and concern for Prisoner of Conscience
Ida Nudel. Mayor Tom Bradley of Los Angeles
described Sharansky as "a giant among men."
Won't Ask Israel To Free Terrorists
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
The State Department in-
dicated that it would not ask
Israel to release Palestinian
terrorists in exchange for
four university professors
kidnapped in Beirut.
"We would not call on third
countries to do anything but to
stand firm in the face of terroist
demands," Department
spokesman Charles Redman said.
Redman was commenting on a
report that a previously unknown
group, calling itself the Islamic
Holy War for the Liberation of
Palestine, claimed it had kidnap-
ped the four professors three
Americans and an Indian national
on Jan. 24 and would kill them
unless Israel released 400 Palesti-
nians from jail within a week.
Israeli Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin said Sunday that the
U.S. had not made any request of
Israel. Rabin said Israel would not
become "an international bank of
prisoners for any of the terrorist
groups who can go out tomorrow
High Court Presses Officials
To Act on Converts to Judaism
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Supreme Court has ordered the
Interior Ministry to show cause
within 45 days why it refuses to
accord Jewish status to persons
converted to Judaism by Reform
rabbis, despite a court order to do
so in the case of Shoshana Miller.
The show cause order was
issued by Justice Gabriel Bach on
the appeal of a married couple in
Kibbutz Mishmar Ha'emek who
were converted to Judaism by a
Reform rabbi in Brazil before they
immigrated to Israel in 1985.
The couple was wedded after
converting and was given Israeli
citizenship under the Law of
Return. But the Interior Ministry
has consistently refused to
register them as Jews. They said
they were told by Ministry of-
ficials that their application would
have to await the outcome of the
Miller case.
Miller, an immigrant from the
U.S. who was converted by a
reform rabbi four years ago, was
denied registration as a Jew. She
appealed to the high court which
ruled in her favor and ordered the
Interior Ministry to issue her an
identification card as a Jew,
without qualification.
Rather than comply, Interior
Minister Yitzhak Peretz of the
ultra-Orthodox Shas Party,
resigned last month. The Ministry
was taken over temporarily by
Premier Yitzhak Shamir who in-
dicated he would postpone issuing
Miller an ID card as long as legally
possible. Shas has threatened to
quit the unity coalition
government.
Black 'Hebrew' Sects Cause
Wide Concern, ADL Reports
Continued from Page 2-
allegedly murdering two tenants
who refused to vacate a building
purchased by the organization.
The Yahwehs' leader has stated
that should the indicted member
be convicted, he will be excom-
municated from the sect. Both
cases are pending.
In the section on the African
Hebrew Israelite Nation of
Jerusalem, the ADL report gives
details on the Chicago-based
group which claims to have
members in major cities in the
United States as well as in
Liberia, Ghana, Kenya and Israel.
The sect was founded in the ear-
ly 1960s by Ben Ami Carter, a
former Chicago foundry worker
and truck driver. Carter, 47,
claims to be an ordained rabbi and
is referred to by his followers as
"messiah," "divine prince of
princes," "father," and
'master."
IN PREACHING that his
group represents the "true"
Jews, Carter claims that the
"Promised Land" belongs to the
black people of the world. The
group's stated goal is to bring all
blacks to Israel and, to make
room for them, Carter has
demanded the return of the
"false" Jews to their countries of
origin, such as Poland, Russia and
Morocco. One of his "princes" has
written that "the Holocaust was a
lie perpetuated by Jews."
The ADL report notes that
beginning in 1969 the group sent
members to settle in Israel and
that the effort resulted in conflicts
with Israeli religious and secular
authorities, who have determined
that the sect's followers are not
genuine members of the Jewish
faith.
Some have been denied entry to
Israel and in 1986, Israel expelled
members of the sect who had been
charged by the U.S. government
with racketeering and fraud.
SINCE THE mid-1970s, the
ADL report said, Carter's
followers have engaged in a con-
certed anti-Israel campaign in the
United States. In January of this
year, the group staged a
demonstration in Washington,
displaying banners reading,
"Zionism the Big Lie" and
"Israel Zionist Terrorism."
Four members of the Chicago
cult were convicted in September
1986 of operating a multi-million
dollar ring that rafficked in
stolen airline Tickets and
passports and were sentenced to
prison terms rangii.i; from 10 to
30 years. One of those imprisoned
was "Prince" Asie. Ben Israel,
who calls himself the sect's "inter-
national ambassador "
The ADL report, which was
prepared by the Research Depart-
ment of the Civil Rights Division
headed by Justin J. Finger, noted
that the two sects' contention that
blacks are the "chosen People"
and that Jews are not true descen-
dants of the Biblical Israelites is
strikingly similar to claims by the
white, racist "Identity Church"
movement. This pseudo-Christian
movement contend* that white
Anglo-Saxons, not Jews, are the
"true Israel" and God's "Chosen
People."

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Histadruth Ivrith of America has

Abraham Friedman Prize for
Hebrew Culture in America to Dr.

of Hebrew literature at Columbia
University here, and president of
the American Academy for
Jewish Research.
&
and kidnap Americans, Germans
or anyone else with the address
for ransom being those who have
been caught as terrorists and are
in prison in Israel."
Redman stressed that U.S.
policy is not to make concessions
to terrorists. "We are not going to
encourage third countries to do
so," he said. "Those who take
hostages need to be fully aware of
that."
Redman denied that Israel had
released Shiite Moslem prisoners
in July, 1985 in return for the
freedom of 39 American hostages
held in Lebanon after the hijack
ing of a TWA plane on June 14,
1985. He said Israel had planned
earlier to allow the prisoners to
return to their homes in south
Lebanon and the hijacking "had
delayed the process." This is the
same explanation given by the
Israel government at the time. It
denied any link to the hostages.
