national conference on the
history and culture of Polish
Jews, held at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem,
seemed to give important im-
petus not only to research on
the role of the Jews in Polish
history but also to the future
relationship between Poland
and world Jewry, including
ties between the Polish and
Israeli governments.
This was indicated in
statements made by some of
the 80 Polish scholars present
as well as by an official an-
nouncement, at the closing
event of the conference, read
on behalf of Polish leader Gen.
Wojciech Jaruzelsi. The an-
nouncement incorporated the
first public acknowledgment
by the Polish government that
its former anti-Jewish and
anti-Israel policies were in er-
ror, including the severing of
ties between Poland and Israel
following the Six-Day War of
The announcement approv-
ed by the Polish State Council
on the eve of the opening of
the Polish Jewry conference at
the Hebrew University, was
read at the conference's clos-
ing dinner by a member of the
council. Prof. Jozef Gierowski,
former rector of the Jagiello-
nian University in Cracow and
currently head of its Research
Center on Jewish History and
Culture in Poland. The an-
nouncement said that the
Polish government condemns
all forms of anti-Semitism and
pledges to intensify research
on the history of the Polish
Jews and their contribution to
the development of all areas of
Polish life. Gierowski also said
he viewed the conference held
at the Hebrew University as a
critical point in the establish-
ment of mutual understanding
and cooperation between
Jewish and Polish researchers.
The conference was organiz-
ed by the Hebrew University's
Center for Research on Polish
Jewry, in cooperation with the
Institute for Polish Jewish
Studies, at Oxford University.
In addition to the Polish par-
ticipants, the conference the
first of its type to deal com-
prehensively with the
1,000-year history of Polish
Jewry brought together
researchers from the U.S.,
Britain, West Germany,
Israel, France and Canada,
some 160 scholars in all.
Among other prominent
figures who attended the clos-
ing event of the conference
were Stefan Kwiatowsky,
head of the Polish interest sec-
tion in Israel, and Zbigniew
Brzezinski, former U.S. Na-
tional Security adviser in the
Carter Administration.
More Mideast Shuttle Diplomacy
Following a less than
trumpeted trip to the Middle
East, shuttling back and forth
between Israel and her Arab
state neighbors, Secretary of
State George Shultz met with
Jordan's King Hussein in Lon-
don for three hours.
American aides indicated
that Shultz would likely return
to the Mideast in a continuing
effort to move the peace pro-
cess along.
Officials and journalists who
accompanied Shultz on his
trips to Arab capitals reported
that Arab attitudes have
hardened toward an Israeli-
Palestinian settlement because
of the continuing unrest in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Since he arrived in Israel,
Shultz visited Damascus, made
two trips to Amman and con-
ferred in Cairo with President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.
Each evening he returned to
Jerusalem and gave separate
briefings to Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, leader of the Likud
faction, and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres, the Labor Par-
ty leader, who remain at log-
gerheads over the American
initiative and the peace pro-
cess in general.
Shultz was trying to wrap up
a Middle East peace package
along the lines said to have
been agreed to in principle by
King Hussein and Peres at
their once-secret meeting in
London last April.
The keystone is an interna-
tional conference, which Hus-
sein insists upon as a prere-
quisite for negotiations with
Israel and which Peres and his
Labor Party support, though
not necessarily in the form en-
visaged by the Jordanian
But Shultz must determine
first whether Hussein has
since backtracked from the
whole idea. He must also deal
with Shamir on his return
from Cairo. He conferred with
Peres before leaving for Am-
man and reportedly told the
foreign minister that he has a
"package" in place that is an
all-or-nothing proposition.
Its several components can-
not be split up, the secretary of
state reportedly said. These
are an international "open-
ing," discussion of interim ar-
rangements or autonomy
for the Palestinians in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
and negotiations for a perma-
nent settlement.
According to Shultz,
Mubarak supports this
f>ackage. Peres told reporters
ater mat Shultz's mission had
reached the stage where all of
the questions have been asked
and now the replies must be
American officials indicated
that Shultz remains confident
he can come up with a formula
that will narrow the dif-
ferences between Shamir and
Hussein with respect to in-
terim measures in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip that
could be taken before negotia-
tions on the "final status" of
the territories.
Shultz has been very careful
to avoid phrases such as "ter-
ritories compromise" or "land
for peace," which are
anathema to Likud. Instead,
he has been stressing United
Nations Security Council
Resolution 242, which was the
basis for the 1978 Camp David
accords that Shamir now
Peres has pointed out that
Resolution 242 does in fact call
for territorial compromise,
though it uses the term
"withdrawal from ter-
ritories," coupled with securi-
ty for Israel, which is open to
various interpretations.

Woman Named In
Vanunu Trap
identity of the mysterious
blonde woman who lured
former Israeli nuclear techni-
cian Mordechai Vanunu out of
Britain in September 1986, to
eventually face trial for es-
pionage and treason in
Jerusalem, was disclosed in
the Sunday Times of London.
The Sunday Times is the
newspaper to which Vanunu,
once employed at Israel's
nuclear facility in Dimona,
gave facts and figures about
Israel's alleged nuclear
weapons capabilities.
His nemesis, according to
the newspaper, was Cheryl
Bentov, 28, the American-born
wife of a former major in
Israeli military intelligence.
The Sunday Times claimed
that Bentov, working for
Mossad, the Israeli secret ser-
vice, introduced herself to the
lonely, nervous Vanunu in
London, as "Cindy."
He traveled with her to
Rome on Sept. 1 and was kid-
napped there by other Israeli
agents and taken to Israel
against his will. The paper's
account contradicts the Israel
government's denial that it
was involved in anything il-
legal on British soil.
The trial of Vanunu, which
began last year, is continuing
in a Jerusalem court closed to
the press and public.
Norwegian soldiers serving
with the United Nations In-
terim Force in Lebanon were
seriously injured when they
wandered into a mine field in
the southern Lebanon security
zone, north of Marjayoun. One
soldier lost a leg.
Rescue efforts were
hampered by shots fired from
unknown sources. According
to UNIFIL, that was "stan-
dard practice" on the part of
the rival guerrilla and militia
groups in southern Lebanon.
The rescue was hazardous in
any event. It took more than
six hours for medical teams to
extricate the more seriously
injured of the two soldiers,
who was lying well within the
mine field.
A 'landmark agreement between the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Council and Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust institu-
tion, to exchange information and materials has been signed in
Jerusalem. The agreement is expected to forge a close link between
the world's only two national Holocaust institutions. William J.
Lowenberg, left, vice, chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Council, and Dr. Yitzhak Arad, chairman of Yad Vashem, sign
the agreement.
BONN West Berlin
authorities are investigating
the deputy director of the
Berlin Document Center and
several dealers of antiquities
and military memorabilia on
suspicion of theft, embezzle-
ment and receiving stolen
goods in connection with the
disapperance of thousands of
files on leading figures in the
Nazi regime, City Justice
Department Spokesman
Volker Kahne announced.
A West Berlin newspaper
had reported that over a
period of several years at least
80,000 documents had been
stolen from the Berlin center,
which is the central archive for
all documents on members of
the National Socialist Party
and is maintained by the
United States. The newspaper
also charged that "huge sums"
were collected by groups
which used the documents to
blackmail prominent per-
sonalities who feared that
their past Nazi connections
might be exposed.
Kahne said justice
authorities suspect that tens of
thousands of original
documents on file in the facili-
ty were sold but said the
authorities had no concrete in-
formation on extortion
A spokesman for the federal
government in Bonn mean-
while noted that agreement in
principle existed between the
Federal Republic and the
United States on the transfer
of the documents to the
Federal Archives in Coblenz.
The spokesman said a prere-
quisite for the agreement was
a pledge by Bonn to complete
the copying of all original
documents onto microfilm,
which then would be placed at
the disposal of the U.S.
may seek the extradition of
convicted Palestinian ter-
rorist Mohammad Mahmud
Issa, who entered Canada a

Sephardic Jews may well
have been the first white set-
tlers to set foot on the Carib-
bean island of Jamaica. An-
thropologist Carol Holzberg
says they preceded the arrival
of the African slaves.
Always insignificant
numerically, Jamaican Jewry
has grown smaller in recent
years. No more than about 300
Jews are left on the island,
representing 0.025 percent of
the population. Holzberg
believes the community's end
is in sight.
In "Minorities and Power in
a Black Society: The Jewish
Community of Jamaica (North-
South Publishing Co., $17.95),
Holzberg traces the develop-
ment of a wealthy, powerful
minority that has wielded con-
siderable influence over the
island's affairs.
Holzberg ascribes the
longevity of the community to
communal solidarity; the ex-
istence of synagogues, special
schools and burial societies;
and the maintenance of
specific rituals and
Intermarriage, however, has
had an impact. The author,
now teaching at the University
of Massachusetts, claims the
many mixed marriages and
conversions over the cen-
turies mean that most of the
descendants of the original
Sephardim have assimilated
within Jamaican society.
As a result, there are black
and even partly Chinese
"Jewmaicans' today. Inter-
breeding has been such that at
a B'nai B'rith dinner in 1975,
Holzberg writes, 18 of the 25
couples in attendance were the
products of intermarriages.
Furthermore, since the
departure of Jamaica's last
rabbi in 1978, the "acting rab-
bi" has been a man who
technically is not even Jewish.
Ernest de Souza, the secretary
of the United Congregation of
Israelites, was born before his
mother converted to Judaism.
He married a Christian who
did not convert until three
years after their marriage.
Holzberg says that strict Or-
thodox Judaism in Jamaica has
been abandoned. Few Jewish
families usher in the Sabbath
with a candle-lighting
ceremony or a festive dinner
at home, and most
"Jewmaicans" do not observe
kashrut. She relates that at a
1974 B'nai B'rith dinner held
to honor de Souza and another
prominent Jew, the chicken
was garnished with strips of
The Dwindling Saga of
Jamaican Jewry
Despite all this, Jamaican
Jews take their Judaism very
seriously. "They see
themselves as different from
the non-Jewish population by
virtue of their collective
history, enduring support for
Israel and their tendency to
employ their own as
secretaries, accountants,
lawyers, company managers,
engineers and the like. If
possible, they shop for
groceries at the Jewish-owned
supermarkets, they have their
hair done by the Jewish hair-
dresser," Holzberg explains.
Apart from relying on co-
religionists for mutual
assistance, "Jewmaicans" feel
themselves to belong to a com-
munity characterized by what
she describes as "overlapping
social networks and snared
kinship ties."
x Holzberg notes that the
United Congregation of
Israelites, in Kingston, the on-
ly functioning synagogue on
the island, is the most impor-
tant institution that binds
"Jewmaicans" into a coherent
community. It is, she writes,
"the primary symbol of the
presence of a distinct and
viable Jewish community."
"Jewmaicans" came
originally from the Iberian
peninsula. In the mid-17th cen-
tury, after the British con-
quest, there was already a
thriving community there. At
no point did the Jewish popula-
tion ever exceed 2,000.
Jewish traders in Jamaica
fared well, prompting Chris-
tian merchants to demand that
they be restricted to the
wholesale trade. The Bpitish
governor ignored their plea,
believing that his Jewish sub-
jects were too valuable to be so
Nevertheless, Jews were
barely tolerated in Jamaica,
suffering social discrimination,
exclusionary legislation and
special taxation. Although
they were granted the vote by
an Act of Parliament in 1740,
they were denied the franchise
by the Jamaican Assembly,
and they attained full civic and
political equality only in 1831.
Holzberg points out that the
emancipation of Jamaican
Jewry, far from being trig-
gered by humanitarian con-
cerns, was more likely than
not a function of economics.
Simply put, it made no sense to
keep them down.
Indeed, "Jewmaicans" have
been involved in manufactur-
ing, commerce, agriculture,
banking, land development,
and politics.

"Jewmaicans" were in-
strumental in the discovery of
bauxite, a clay-likeore, (a
mainstay of the economy) and
were pioneers in the produc-
tion of cement, pulp and paper,
glass, drugs and matches.
The Gleaner, Jamaica's

by Sephardic Jews, Jacob de
Cordova and his half-brother,
Joshua. It still partly owned by

But for all its achievements,
the comunity is in a state of
decline. It holds more funerals
than weddings, and Holzberg
says that "the days of a truly
powerful Jewish community
are numbered."
Factors responsible for this
are the low birthrate, inter-
marriage, conversion and a
law requiring non-naturalized
residents to pay an annual fee
for permission to work.
Emigration has also taken
its tolls, she adds. Between
1966 and 1976, 200 Jews im-
migrated to the United States,
Britain, Canada and Australia.
Some families left in search
of better educational oppor-
tunities for their children.
Jews also have cited reasons
such as political uncertainty,
deteriorating economic condi-
tions, crime and reverse

Passover Means Balance
Temple Sinai
In a great comic line, a the Sea of Reeds,
playwright has a gal blurt out
'This country belongs to the
people who inhibit it!
Jews are inhibited too, We
are urged to avoid extremes.
Moderation is the key call of
the Jewish faith.
Joyousness is fine. Total
frivolity is a no-no. So, at a
wedding we have fun. But the
glass-breaking is designed to
curb the fun before it sinks to
aimless boisterousness.
Mourning for a departed one
is understandable. But mourn-
ing must not become morbidi-
ty. Hence you say the Kaddish,
which speaks not of death but
of the debt we owe the
Almighty One for the gift of

If Judaism were to dwell on
the melancholy, Passover
would be a day of mourning,
for it commemorates hundreds
of years of slavery.
Passover does call for a
remembrance of bondage. But
it is a happy time because our
faith urges us to stress the
triumph and not just the
At the Seder, that un-
paralleled potpourri of prayer,
food, blessings, rodomontade
and evocations of history, we
have a number of instances in
which the idea of moderation is

reminds us of the tears of the
slaves, but in order to check
lugubriousness, it also reminds

We retell the story of Egyp-
tian brutality. But we also
recall the saga of liberation. At
the Seder we eat a sandwich.
What's in it? The sweet and
the bitter. The charoses, the
sweet, represents the
sweetness of freedom; the
maror illustrates the bit-
terness of servitude.
We who enjoy freedom must
do what we can to offset the
bitterness of those who are
shackled, whether physically
under Hitlers or culturally
under Kremlinites.
The 'f50itself exemplifies
that balance. It is a symbol of
the mortar which the Jews had
to make. But it's sweet to con-
vey the lesson that there's
nothing more satisfying than
liberation, whether it be from
bodily bondage or from a bad
habit in which we enslave
Passover is a simcha time.
It's a holiday of jubilation. But
before we say farewell to
Passover, we counterbalance
the exhilaration with a touch
of solemnity as we gather to
say Yizkor.
Like other holidays,
therefore, Passover has a
message of the extraordinary
commonsensability of our
traditions. The message is:
avoid extremism. Synthesize
the gay and the grave, the sad
and the joyful. Introduce
equilibrium into your daily life.
Don't let the merriment pass
over to irresponsibility. Don't
permit the serious to pass over
to unrelieved grimness.
A happy and meaningful
Passover to all.

in Israel showed up for work.
Arab was killed by army gun-
fire in Burin village near
Nablus and another Arab died
at a Haifa hospital from
wounds he suffered during a
clash with the Israel Defense
Force in Jenin.
The latest deaths brought
the number of Palestinian
fatalities to 78 since the distur-
bances began in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip last Dec.
The territories were
relatively quiet but increasing
unrest was reported in Arab
villages in Israel. The Palesti-
nian flag was raised twice at
Barta'a village near Hadera, a
violation of Israeli law.
Palestinian flags were
drawn on the walls of a school
in the nearby Arab town of
Urnrn el-Fahm and the village
of Jatt. Police detained four
residents of Meghar village in
lower Galilee on suspicion of
stoning a police officer during
a soccer match.
Meanwhile, acts of violence
against Palestinians were
under investigation by the
military authorities. Four
Israel Defense Force soldiers
and an officer were released
from custody. They were
shown on a CBS-TV news
videotape beating and kicking
two handcuffed Palestinians
during an interrogation at a
military prison near Nablus.
The decision to free them
was made following consulta-
tions between Gen. Amram
Mitzna, whose command in-
cludes the West Bank, and the
chief military prosecutor, Am-
mon Strachnow. The pro-
secutor will decide whether to
press charges.
Mitzna had summoned his
field commanders to view the
video tape, which had been
widely shown abroad.
Charges are being pressed
against three IDF soldiers ac-
cused of burying four Palesti-
nians alive following a riot at
Salem village in the West
Bank Feb. 5. They were
covered with earth by a
bulldozer whose driver
reportedly refused to obey an
order to run them over. The
Palestinians were rescued by
local villagers after the
soldiers left.
A Jewish settler from
Halamish in the West Bank,
suspected of killing two Arabs
in Abud village was released
on bail by a Jerusalem
magistrates court. The suspect
said he fired his rifle in self-
defense when he was attacked
while trying to remove a
Jewish settlers staged a
motorcade demonstration in
Tel Aviv, snarling traffic on
Dizengoff Street, a main shop-
ping strip. They warned
against any plan for an Israeli
evacuation of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip and urged the
government not to "surrender
to the shower of stones."
It is not as hard as you think,
nor as complicated. The little
effort entailed will yield you
and your family great
Many a family, which would
like the pleasure of observing
the Passover at home, fail to
do so because of the self-
consciousness of the father.
He is sure that he cannot run
the Seder as his father did
before him. The result is that
thousands of Jewish homes are
devoid of the cheerful ring and
heartlifting warmth, not to
mention the stirring idealism,
that the proper observance of
the festival will bring.
It would be a pity if Passover
were to "pass over" your
home without the home obser-
vance which enables you to
relive the fight for liberty ex-
perienced by our forefathers
and without the ceremony
which strengthens the bond
between you and the other
members of your family.
Here are some tips which
will help you make a family
Seder successful.
1. Make sure everyone has a
Haggadah. There are many
beautiful Haggadot now on the
market and you have a wide
2. Don't feel that your Seder
must be too formal. You may
interpolate into the various
parts of the service your own
comments. You may ask
others to do the same. Keep
the service moving along, but
don't feel that it must have the
same formality as a synagogue
service. The Seder is a unique
mixture of the solemn and the
3. Study the Haggadah
before the night of the Seder.
Decide in advance which parts
you can do in Hebrew and
which in English. But be
familiar with the text before
you sit down for the ceremony.
4. Rotate the reading of the
parts of the Haggadah among
those at the table. Some will
read in English; others in
Hebrew. Some will sing the
songs in one style; others will
use another melody. The very
melange of the Hebrew
dialects and the variations in
the manner of reading por-
tions of the service will il-
lustrate the diversity of Jewish
life and add a special flavor to
the proceedings.
5. Have the guests recite as
many of the blessings as possi-
ble in unison, and even certain
segments can be read in unison
so as to engage the atten-
tion of everyone and make
each one feel that he is par-
ticipating in the service.
6. As for the Afikomon, take
the time to conceal the matzah
carefully in advance. Tell the
children at the beginning of
the Seder that there will be an
Afikomon hunt which will take
place after the service and
then give prizes to those who
find that matzah. The prizes
ought to have some Jewish
Traditionally, Passover is a
time when you can derive both
merriment and inspiration
from the great saga of the Ex-
odus. Don't lose the opportuni-
ty of introducing the Passover
spirit into your own home.
Both you and your children
will feel amply rewarded for
the little effort entailed.
Don't say you can't conduct
a Seder. You can!

Palestinians Lynch Suspected Collaborator
Bank Arab youth was killed in
the Jenin refugee camp and
another was seriously wound-
ed when patrolling Israeli
soldiers opened fire on Palesti-
nians who were attacking with
rocks and iron bars.
The soldiers reportedly were
unable to disperse the mob by
other means.
Israel Defense Force
soldiers also destroyed two
houses in Jenin that belonged
to two known participants in
the lynch killing in nearby
Kabatiya village of an Arab
employee of the Israeli Civil
Administration in the West
An angry mob of about 1,000
villagers had set fire to the
house of the victim and killed
him, hanging his body from an
electric utility pole.
The victim, Muhammad
Ayed A-Ragheb, 29, worked
for the traffic department in
Jenin and was licensed to
carry a weapon. He opened
fire on the attackers with a Uzi

West Bank Arabs Reject Shultz Plan
The United States plan for
Arab self-rule in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza is un-
satisfactory, according to
Arab activists here.
"What the U.S. keeps
forgetting is that the Palesti-
nian question does not end at
the borders of the West Bank
and Gaza strip, but' extends
much further," warned an
editorial in Al Fajr, the
leading proO-PLO daily
newspaper in East Jerusalem.
"There is the problem of
refugees living in other Arab
countries who have a right to
come and live in their
homeland ... there is the right
of every Palestinian to return
to their homes within the 1948
The "Unified National
Leadership of the Uprising in
the Gaza Strip" has likewise
rejected the U.S. plan. In a
statement published in the
Haifa Arab newspaper Al-
Ittihad, the group declared:
"The PLO is the sole
legitimate spokesman for the
Palestinian people and our
goal is the establishment of an
independent Palestinian state
under its leadership," the
statement asserted. It also
demanded that Israel free all
rioters arrested since
December, and allow the

The" State Department an-
nounced that the United
States intends to give Israel $3
billion in fiscal year 1989 after
consideration of a decrease.
Deputy Secretary of State
John Whitehead explained
that the department looked in-
to reducing aid to both Egypt
and Israel, the two countries
that receive the most U.S.
foreign aid, because of
budgetary constraints.
As in 1987 and 1988, Israel
is designated to receive $1.8
billion in military aid and $1.2
billion in economic aid in 1989,
all in the form of grants. The
1989 funding level was approv-
ed by Congress last year, when
it concurrently set foreign aid
levels for 1988 and 1989.
Egypt is to receive $2.3
billion in both 1988 and 1989,

Whitehead said "some
thought was given to" the
reduction, "though there
would be very little sympathy"
in Congress.

the Israeli authorities because
of his support for Arab

13 others.
Kabatiya village was placed
under curfew and 20 residents
were detained for questioning.
The shooting and apparent
lvnching was the worst inci-
dent of inter-Arab violence
since disturbances began in
the administered territories
more than two months ago.
Arabs employed by the civil
administration have been
threatened in leaflets widely
circulated in the territories
and in broadcasts by the
terrorist-operated "Free
Jerusalem" radio station in
Syria. Other Arabs suspected
of collaborating with Israel
have been murdered or attack-
ed, but this lynching was the
first reported.
A-Ragheb was assaulted by
virtually the entire village. His
house was reportedly besieged
for five hours before he panick-
ed and fired on the mob. It was
not clear whether he was burn-
ed to death and then hanged or
was hanged alive and elec-
trocuted by contact with high
tension wires. His body was

had shot them. IDF troops sur-
rounded Kabatiya but were
not in the village at the time of
the shooting.
The IDF troops refrain from
entering Arab villages if possi-
ble to avoid friction with the
local inhabitants. They used
tear gas to break up riots that
erupted in Jenin after
residents of a nearby refugee
camp stoned passing vehicles
and burned tires on the road.

White Supremacist Trial
Sedition and Conspiracy
prosecution's chief witness
against the 14 white
supremacists on trial in Fort
Smith, Ark., testified that the
death of an ally in 1983 spur-
red a plot to kill a federal judge
and special FBI agent.
James Ellison, 47, former
leader of The Covenant, the
Sword and the Arm of the
Lord, said that Gordon Kahl, a
Posse Comitatus tax protester
who was killed in 1983 in a
shootout with law enforcement
agents, was declared the "first
hero of the second American
revolution" at a 1983 meeting
of right-wing paramilitary
Their murder plot was
halted when a van carrying
weapons to be used in the plot
was involved in an accident.
The testimony of Ellison, an
unindicted co-conspirator, is
considered critical to the
government's case against the
14 defendants, 10 of whom are
charged with conspiring to
overthrow the U.S. govern-
ment in a plot that allegedly in-
volved robberies,
counterfeiting and attempts to
kill federal officials.
Of those 10, one of them is
also charged, along with four
others, in a separate con-
spiracy to kill Judge H.
Franklin Waters and special
FBI agent Jack Knox. Waters,
chief federal district judge in
western Arkansas, was sup-
posed to have presided over
the trial of a couple who har-
bored Kahl after he killed two
federal agents.
The indictment puts Ellison,
who is serving 20 years in
prison for racketeering and
conspiracy to manufacture
automatic weapons, at
meetings where two con-
spiracies are alleged to have
been conceived.
At the proceedings, he said
he had agreed to cooperate
with the government after he
received a promise of new
identities and relocation for
the two women he considers
his wives as well as for his nine
Ellison founded the now-
defunct CSA, a paramilitary,
survivalist community that
adhered to the "Christian
Identity" movement, in 1971
near Bull Shoals Lake, Ark.
When federal and state
agents raided the camp in
1985, they found weapons
stockpiles that included sub-
machine guns, grenades, ex-
plosives and an antitank
rocket, as well as targets that
were cutouts of law enforce-
ment officials with Stars of
David on their chests.
They also found cyanide,
which prosecutors at the trial
say was intended to poison the
water supplies of New York
City and Washington, DC. The
plotters allegedly thought the
poisoning would prompt
unrest that could have led to a
race war and eventual over-
throw of the U.S. government.
Assistant U.S. attorney
Steven Snyder said that
William Wade, one of the five
people accused of plotting the
murder of the judge and FBI
agent, had harbored Kahl on
his Arkansas property in 1983.
Snyder said that Wade and
his son, Ivan, also on trial, ask-
ed Ellison for his help with the
backing of CSA in avenging
Kahl's death. Ellison testified
that Ivan Wade had said that
federal agents murdered Kahl
and then burned down the far-
mhouse where he died in order
to hide evidence of their act.

changing and suggestions
relative to hearing impaired
problems are an integral part
of each meeting.
The "Loop," attached to
microphones at the podium,
encircles seats in the first six
rows of the meeting. Over the
ear, hearing aids with
telephone hearing at-
tachments have the "T"
switch volume turned up all
the way to block out all distur-
bing noises, and enable one to
hear everything being said.
During the meeting, such
developments as the new THX
system installed for the hear-
ing impaired at recently open-
ed movie theaters are an-
nounced. The new type of
hearing aid with remote con-
trol, announced for President
Reagan, is also being research-
ed and will be mentioned.

(JTA) Inspired by the cold
winter that killed some of the
nation's homeless, mayors of a
number of American cities are
seriously considering a march
on Washington to dramatize
the need for federal funding of
human services.
Estimates of America's
homeless run from 30,000 to
three million. You have seen
the pictures of homeless
But children with homes are
suffering, too, from the na-
tional child care crisis.
Few realize that more than
seven million children under
age 13 spend the day alone
because their parents cannot
afford day care. And while
Canada, with a population
about one-tenth that of the
United States, is setting aside
$4 billion to double its number
of child care spaces over the
next seven years, Washington
has not even provided
guidelines to ensure the safety
of children in day care centers.
Nor are there federal provi-
sions for the licensing and
training of child care
By 1995, three of every four
of this proud nation s 34
million school children will
have mothers in the labor
force, according to the
Children's Defense Fund.
Defense? A short time ago,
Washington spent an
estimated $250,000 for 12
hours of a Strategic Defense
Initiative test. It is much
easier to find money to put
lethal firepower in the heavens
above than to appropriate ade-
quate funding for the vital
needs of our children here on
Fault for the child care crisis
lies not in Washington alone.
On a state and local level, the
average pay for garbage col-
lectors and school ianitors is
often higher than that of day
care staffers.
President Reagan has signed
an executive order aimed at
"preserving" family life in
America. While we're waiting
for more news on that score,
consider these facts: The U.S.
Census Bureau reports that
one in every five U.S. children
lives with one parent nearly
nine in every 10 of them with
their mothers. Many of these
mothers have to work outside
their homes. Indeed, more
than half of the mothers with
preschool children are in the
work force.

Arabs Counter Closure
Of PLO Mission
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) The Arabs states officially re-

'Wedding Of The Century' Proves True Love Can Last Forever
Nearly 200 couples renewed
their wedding vows on Valen-
tine's Day at "The Wedding of
the Century," hosted by Cen-
tury Village in Pembroke
Pines. The couples' combined
years of marriage totaled
7,224 years.
"We're more in love now
than ever before," exclaimed
Rose and Seymour Wilk, who
after 43 years of marriage say
their formula for true love is
"to never go to bed angry.
Besides," they explain, "mak-
ing up is so much fun!" Mr.
Wilk wore the same Army hat
he wore at their original wed-
ding, and his bride hand-made
her own hat and dress for the
Held between the senior
community's shuffleboard
courts and Olympic size pool,
the event was attended by
about 1,000 family members
and friends. Co-hosts were
Chuck Zink, who was televi-
sion's host "Skipper Chuck" in
the 1950's and 60's, and Geoff
Charles of WNWS Radio.
Ann and Vincent Brink were
married the longest of the
group, 61 years, and the bride,
holding up the original garter
she had worn at their wedding,
proudly announced, "It s
stretched out, but so am I!"
Later she shared her secret for
wedded bliss: "Do whatever
ou want, but always make
im think it's his idea."
The wedding reception
featured dancing, champagne
punch, and live entertaine-
ment, with prizes given to the
couple married the longest and
brides who wore their original

Terrorists Active In Lebanon
Israel Defense Force soldier
was slightly wounded when his
vehicle came under fire in the
southern Lebanon security
zone. The incident occurred
north of Beaufort Castle, the
ruins of a 12th-century
Crusaders' fortress that was a
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion stronghold before the
1982 war in Lebanon.
Elsewhere in the security
zone, four Islamic guerrillas
were killed and three soldiers
of the Israel-backed South
Lebanon Army were wounded
in a clash that followed a guer-
rilla attempt to storm the SLA
SLA sources said fire was
aimed at them from a nearby
post of the United Nations In-
terim Force in Lebanon
patrolled by Irish troops.
A military spokesman an-
nounced, meanwhile, that an
Israel Navy patrol boat sank a
motorized rubber dinghy car-
rying terrorist infiltrators
from Lebanon. The terrorist
craft was blown out of the
water, the spokesman said.
The incident, which occurred
south of the Lebanese port of
Tyre, was the latest of an in-
creasing number of attempted
seaborne attacks on Israel,
none of which has succeeded.
The Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, a ter-
rorist group headed by George
Habash, claimed responsibili-
ty. It said three of its men
managed to swim to shore and
two were missing.

Israels' Moral Conscience
Friday, March 11, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 13
Several years ago a police of-
ficer was forcea to shoot a
traffic violator who had, in
anger, pulled a gun from his
glove compartment. Upon
spotting the gun, the officer
drew his revolver and killed his
would-be assailant. I
remember the event well
because I struggled with the
officer's choice. Was he right .
to shoot first, assuming the
murderous intentions of the
suspect or should he have
waited to ascertain the situa-
tion and risk getting killed
Many people grapple with
scenarios like the one above,
hoping to synthesize their own
moral expectations with their
instincts for self preservation.
Many wonder, when is killing
murder and when is it self-
defense? To answer this ques-
tion, each of must define the
word "moral." From reading
the Bible and speaking with
those who specialize in this
area, I have come to define the
term as follows: Immorality is
a deliberate and malicious act
to deny the life of oneself or
another. I suppose the con-
verse definition would imply
that a moral deed is one which
enhances and nourishes life.
The State of Israel has been
accused of handling the unrest
in the Occupied Territories in
an immoral fashion. In light of
the above definition I disagree
with this criticism. Israel is a
tiny country, not a super-
power, surrounded by hostile
forces and inhabited by an ag-
gressive population, which to
this day refuses to recognize
the existence of the state.
Palestinians refer to Israel not
by name but simply as the
"Zionist presence." No
Palestinian leader has yet to
stand up to talk peace with
Israel. Any Arab leader who
has, was murdered. No
Palestinian leader has re-
nounced his claim to the entire
land of Israel. Thus, after five
defensive wars and tens of
thousands dead, Israel knows
what it must do in order to
Israel must be defensively
strong. It must devote massive
amounts of its resources for
the securing of its borders. It
must not falter when internal
forces rise up to instigate a
Civil War. But physical
strength is not enough. Israel
must protect itself against a
weakening of its moral fiber. It
knows that its definition as a
State is inextricably linked to
the Biblical injunction "Be a
light unto the nations." The na-
tion as a whole is profoundly
aware of the pain of oppres-
sion, being slaves in the
Biblical era and refugees in the
20th century. Tens of
thousands have marched for
peace in Israel. Each soldier is
commanded to restore order
by peaceful means whenever
possible. When this is not
feasible, they are ordered to
resort to physical deterence. It
would be immoral to be passive
in the face of violent attack.
Sure, mistakes are made.
Sure, there are excesses
(beatings, bulldozers) in the
heat of confrontation. Let's
remember that the soldiers on
the line are only 18 years old.
They sometimes get scared,
angry and jittery, but they are
always disciplined for their er-
rors. Israel, even in war, con-
tinues to hold itself
In the name of morality, we
would expect the police officer
to defend himself. In the name
of morality, we should demand
that Israel defend itself
against a constant mortal
Temple Beth El, Boca Raton
The State of Israel is now in
the midst of a catastrophic
defensive war ... the seventh
defensive war since its
emergence, Phoenix-like, from
its Holocaust horror.
In the current defensive war
for its very survival ... an in-
ternal uprising rather than an
external terrorist one ...
To The Editor
those who lack the proper
historical perspective are
perpetuating a grievious sin
against Israel and
righteousness by gratutiously
chiding Israel in its defense
Turning the other cheek
after the initial one has been
maimed and bloodied will lead
to, G-d forbid, the destruction
of Israel's third com-
monwealth ... the sole bastion
of democracy in the Middle
Let us quell the brutish ag-
gressor, rather than stone the
defensive victim desperately
struggling for survival and
righteous peace ...

Israel Outlaws
Sexism on Job
Knesset enacted legislation

place and protecting women
employees from sexual
The legislation, considered a
landmark for Israel in this
field, also provides maternity
leave for new fathers. In addi-
tion, a father may obtain paid
leave to take care of a sick
child. Similar laws exist in
Sweden and several other
European countries, but they
are a rarity world-wide.
The law also makes sexual
harassment on the job a
criminal offense and will make
available legal aid to assist a

Leading Clergy
Agree on Peace Plan
Leaders of two U.S. rabbinic
organizations agreed that
Israel should be willing to
trade territory for peace with
the Arab states.
Rabbi Binyamin Walfish, ex-
ecutive director of the Rab-
binical Council of America (Or-
thodox), said that he no longer
disagrees with the Israeli
Peace Now movement's call
for territorial compromise. He
was referring to a statement
of support by Rabbi Wolfe
Kelman, executive director of
the Rabbinical Assembly
They, along with Rabbi
Joseph Glazer, executive direc-
tor of the Central Conference
of American Rabbis (Reform),
were discussing relations bet-
ween the three branches of
Judaism as well as other
Jewish issues at a forum spon-
sored by the Hebrew Institute
of Riverdale, New York.
They responded to audience
questions of their choosing.
"We should give up territory
for the sake of peace and for
the sake of Jewish lives," said
Walfish, adding that he and
Kelman did not necessarily
agree on how much land Israel
should relinquish.
Kelman said the Conser-
vative movement's dominant
mood "would be pro-
negotiations to the 1948
borders. Remember, there
were debates then. The majori-
ty of the Jews accepted the
partition plan and would ac-
cept it again."
But, added Kelman, "I don't
feel outrage at the Israel
Defense Force ... They were
the defenders, not the in-
itiators" of the violence in the
. tecritories.

can be a rocky road
