Talking With ThePLO...
Most Organizations
Support Move
By
ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) With
few exceptions, major Ameri-
can Jewish groups said they
understood U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz's decision
to allow "substantive talks"
between representatives of the
United States and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith said the
United States is "living up to
its commitments." Both the
American Jewish Congress
and the American Jewish
Committee said Shultz acted
"correctly." The Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions called the decision a "vic-
tory" for Shultz.
But while agreeing that the
PLO seemed to have accepted
the U.S. government's condi-
tions for dialogue, nearly all
SHULTZ FIELDS QUESTIONS. At a State Department
news conference following President Reagan's declaratiort,
that he had authorized the State Department to enter into a
"substantive dialogue" with the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO), Secretary of State Georae Shultzfolds
reporters' questions. "Our object is not a dialogue," said
Shultz, "our object is peace." (APIWide World Photo)
the groups released state-
ments demanding that PLO
leader Yasir Arafat be made to
match his "magic words" with
deeds.
"Yasir Arafat has now met
the technical requirements for
a dialogue with the United
States, said Warren Eisen-
berg, director of the Interna-
tional Council of B'nai B'rith.
But, he added, "the PLO has
to show through deeds that it
has finally come to terms with
Israel's existence and intends
to pursue the path of peace
and eschew violence."
Morris Abram, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations, said at a news
conference that Secretary of
State George Shultz believed
"honestly" that Arafat had
met U.S. demands for dia-
logue, as outlined in a 1975
U.S. Memorandum of Agree-
ment with Israel.
But Abram implied that the
United States should ask even
more of the PLO, and he went
so far as to spell out one of
those deeds.
In a statement drafted at a
meeting with representatives
of the 46 Conference of Presi-
dents constituent organiza-
tions, Abram said that the
PLO should be made to repudi-
ate its National Covenant.
"There can be no progress
toward peace in the Middle
East if the PLO insists on
adhering to the covenant its
CJF Executive Vice President Carmi Schwartz and Associate
Executive Vice President Donald Feldstein review the over
100,000 signatures received to date on petitions opposing any
change in Israel's Law of Return. The petition drive was
organized by the Council of Jewish Federations in cooperation
with its 200 member Federations. All petitions were packaged
and delivered to Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir by a
team of Federation leaders.
basic political document
which calls on Palestinian
Arabs 'to repel the Zionist and
imperialist aggression against
the Arab homeland' and
demands 'the elimination of
Zionism in Palestine,' said
Abram.
AJCongress said the United
States should demand assur-
ances that PLO terrorism has
ended, that Arafat accept Res-
olution 242 unencumbered by
any other UN resolutions and
that Arafat say to the Arab
world what he has been saying
in the Western press.
Theodore Ellenoff, president
of AJCommittee, added to the
list of demands that the United

WASHINGTON (JTA) If
future acts of terrorism are
traceable to the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, the
United States will expect
those involved to be expelled
from the PLO, the State
Department's top specialist on
the Middle East said.
In such a scenario, the
United States "will expect the
PLO leadership to disassociate
itself' from the terrorist act
and to take disciplinary action,
"including expelling those
involved from the organiza-
tion," said Richard Murphy,
assistant secretary of state for
Near Eastern and South Asian
affairs. He spoke on ABC-TV's
"This Week with David Brink-
ley" program.
President-elect George Bush
rek rated that position when
he told a news conference that
opening a dialogue with the
PLO does not mean the United
States is softening its opposi-
tion to terrorism.
"I don't care whether it
comes from a faction of the left
-No Tolerance for Terrorism
or from the center or right or
wherever. I don't think that
we should indicate any willing-
ness to be tolerant of terror-
ism from the PLO," Bush said.
But it appears that the
United States will not hold the
PLO accountable for continued
violence in the Israeli-admini-
stered territories, as it will in
other parts of the world.
Another top State Department
policymaker drew a distinction
between acts of terrorism and
the year-old Palestinian up-
rising in the territories.
"The intifada when it
emerged was not a byproduct
of a PLO decision; it reflected
a reaction to prolonged occu-
pation. So the reaction of peo-
ple to occupation is not going
to cease immediately,"
Michael Armacost, under-
secretary of state for political
affairs, said on CBS-TV's
"Face the Nation."
Also speaking on the CBS
program was Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres, who
left the door open to talks with
PLO members who are not
"shooting or killing."
Peres said he is "ready to sit
with every Palestinian, no
matter what his biography
was, if he is not shooting and
killing, if he is ready to talk, if
he represents his people, and if
he seeks peace."
Asked about a possible next
step for Israel to take, follow-
ing the PLO's move to re-
cognize Israel, Peres said that
his country must first see that
Arafat's renunciation of ter-
rorism is sincere. "Let's wait a
month, a couple of months,
and see if this is really going to
happen," Peres suggested.
A key obstacle to Israel
believing Arafat is sincere may
be whether it considers the
PLO accountable for continued
Palestinian violence in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Peres said he includes
such violence as traceable to
Arafat. "We see to include it,
because for us, if a baby is
being killed or wounded by a
stone, what does it matter
what is the name?"
He presented a challenge to
the PLO on the West Bank. "If
the Palestinians would stop
violence right away, yester-
day, the whole feeling, the
whole emotions in Israel would
be entirely different."
Peres said he believes the
PLO has recently moderated
its position. "Until now the
PLO would never say the
expression which is called
'peace' or the expression
which is called 'Israel.' They
wanted Israel without a peace
or a peace without an Israel."
But, he added, "now the
question is: Is that a change in
the language or is that a
change in the position?"
In contrast to Peres, Likud
Knesset member Binyamin
Netanyahu, appearing on the
Brinkley show, seemed to
reject any PLO moderation
outright. "The PLO uses
declarations of peace as a tac-
tic of war," he said. He noted
that Winston Churchill, Great
Britain's prime minister dur-
ing World War II, "refused to
have any dealings with Hitler"

Entin To Head TAU Library Fund
Lester Entin of Boca Raton
has been appointed national
chairman of the Presidents
Library Fund for the Ameri-
can Friends of Tel Aviv Univer-
sity (AFTAU). Entin is special
advisor on American affairs to
the university president, and a
vice chairman of the board of
governors.
Melvin S. Taub, chairman of
the board of AFTAU pledged
on behalf of that group, to
raise $2 million through a
nationwide book campaign to
be conducted 1988-89. Taub, a
resident of Boca Raton, made
the pledge at the Tel Aviv
University international board
of governors meeting held in
Israel this past summer.
Dr. Moshe Many, TAU's
president, has alerted Friends
around the world of the need
for funds for books and period-
icals for the university's librar-
ies. TAU, Israel's largest insti-
tution of higher education, has
suffered from government fis-
cal austerity and the reorder-
ing of priorities which has
placed higher education on the
back burner.
"Higher education in Israel
will suffer severely," Lester
Entin explains, "if the librar-
ies of TAU ... does not have
the .. support necessary to
Lester Entin
fulfill its function. Texts must
be replenished; new titles
acquired, up-to-date periodi-
cals maintained. With the
assistance of American
Friends, from Maine to Cali-
fornia, we are going to help."
Entin's involvement with
Tel Aviv University has
included the endowment of the
Sally and Lester M. Entin
Floor of the School of Commu-
nications Disorders of the Sac-
kler Faculty of Medicine.

Students Memorialize Holocaust Victims
Redeeming a pledge made in
front of the barbed wire fence
of the Nazi death camp, Bir-
kenau, a group of Dade, Brow-
ard and Palm Beach County
students, participants in this
year's March of the Living,
will dedicate a local memorial
for the six million who per-
ished during the Holocaust.
The students, who were cho-
sen by the Central Agency for
Jewish Education (CAJE),
sponsors of Student Partici-
pants of the March of the
Living, will gather with area
rabbis and cantors Sunday,
Jan. 8, 11:30 a.m., at Menorah
Memorial Gardens, 2100 West
Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale.
The dedication of Memorial
Stele is cosponsored by CAJE
and Menorah Chapels.
The project was initiated by
one of the marchers, Daniel
Ballon, who preserved and
brought back to the U.S. ashes
and soil from the death camps
visited on the students' trip.
The memorial will feature
etched and carved granite
depicting the gates of the
entrance to Auschwitz. The
design and propery were also
provided by Menorah Memo-
rial Gardens.
The students had concluded
their trip to Poland with a visit
to Israel. In remembrance of
this affirmation of life, soil
from the Mount of Olives will
be sealed within the memorial
urn.
Dr. Lily Ratok, left, is this year's recipient ofNa'amat's Beba
Idelson Prize for her research on women's poetry in Israel.
Named for a former secretary general of Na'amat, the annual

Department for outstanding research on women's contributions
to society in a specific field. Congratulating Dr. Ratok are Afasha
Lubelsky, center, secretary general of Na'amat, and Haviva

TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel is
trying to obtain the release of
four fishermen from Eilat
detained by Egypt for violat-

Red Sea. Israeli military
sources said that according to
their investigation, the Egyp-
tian authorities in Nueiba were
justified in seizing the men and
their boat.
Apparently they were sail-

prior to or during the war.
He also argued that the
opening of a U.S. dialogue
with the PLO has "made peace
much more difficult," by push-
ing away Palestinian Arabs
"who want to look for a real
negotiation, a real coexistence
with Israel."
Finally, on NBC-TV's "Meet
the Press," White House Chief
of Staff Kenneth Duberstein,
the first Jew to hold that post,
said the administration con-
sidered domestic fallout from
U.S. Jews when reaching its
decision to begin talks with the
PLO.
He attributed the minimal
amount of American Jewish
criticism of Secretary of State
Shultz's decision to "an awful
lot of confidence in Ronald
Reagan and George Shultz and
the very special commitment
that there is between this
government and the Israeli
government."

Viewpoint
A Forward Step
Responding to appeals both from President
Herzog and top representatives of world
Jewry, Prime Minister Shamir has formed a
coalition government in Israel.
Both the Likud and Labor party leaders had
to overcome major opposition internally to
achieve the new agreement. But the selection
of the top cabinet posts appears to be the most
representative alignment possible.
While Washington seemed to prefer the
Peres stance in favor of an international peace
conference, neither the Reagan-Bush Admin-
istration nor world Jewry is likely to protest
the final coalition.
There are those who have hastily concluded
that the new Israeli government is unable to
meet the challenges inherent in the PLO's new
political power.
A far better attitude is to give both Shamir's
coalition and President-Elect Bush time to set
their respective agendas. What has waited 40
years can wait a few more weeks.
Reaction To The Inevitable
Would that we were wrong.
For 13 years now, the United States has
stood firm in a principled posture neither to
acknowledge, deal nor negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization. Former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and
later President Reagan laid the foundation
for any potential dialogue by demanding a
troika of prerequisites: that the PLO explicitly
recognize the State of Israel; that the PLO
renounce rather than simply denounce
terrorism in all its forms; and that the PLO
recognize UN Resolutions 242 and 338 as the
bases for a peace settlement.
Finally, a catch-22 scenario. In spite of the
U.S. insistence that PLO Chairman Yasir
Arafat was too much of a terrorist to be
eligible for a visa for entry purposes, Secret-
ary of State George Shultz was forced to open
talks with the PLO because its recalcitrant
titular head finally uttered the requisite
words.
The open sesame salvo may indeed be a
Pandora's box instead.
Like the mythical figure whose action
released into the world untold ills, the verbal
transaction of this week past will surely have
repercussions rippling on shores far from
landlocked Switzerland.
The first and foremost, from this paper's
perspective, is that Israel should be left
even by perception in a singularly lonely
and isolated political locale. While the United
States has reiterated time and again that its
overture was one of contact rather than
substantive negotiations, it appears on the
world screen that Israel is the last player to
make its entrance.
To add to the isolation, Israel is now being
portrayed as intransigent when in fact its
position is one of self-protection.
In an interview last week with The Jewish
Floridian, Meir Rosenne, former ambassador
from Israel to the United States, suggested
1 I he Jewish Tik T

that instead of a three-prong test for the PLO,
as dictated by the U.S., Israel has its own
two-part litmus test to measure PLO sincer-
ity.
According to Rosenne, Israel needs to see a
change in the PLO covenant which pres-
ently calls for the destruction of a Zionist
presence rather than a vocal recognition.
And in lieu of a verbal renouncement of
terrorism, Israel demands a cessation of the
violence in the administered territories and
elsewhere.
Now, in a clever ploy of diminished expecta-
tions, Arab League spokesmen and other
apologists for the PLO are excusing before
the fact terrorist actions against Zionist
targets. By explaining tha"t Arafat cannot
control radicals within the umbrella organiza-
tion, the chairman may not be held responsible
for any such behavior that does not conform to
the newly revised international persona for
the PLO.
Consequently, Arafat has nothing to lose
according to this thesis. He won't be damned if
he does or doesn't stop the terrorist activities
of his Palestinian cohorts.
That, of course, is not what the United
States is demanding. Ronald Reagan used
language exquisite in its strength: the
renouncement of terrorism must be "perva-
sive and permanent" for the U.S. not to pull
out of these fledgling contacts. We support
that stance, which simply put is that the PLO
must match its words with deeds.
Still to be determined is whether the inti-
fada described by one Arab League as
"ennobling" the cause of Palestinian self-
determination will cease. Still to be decided
is how Arafat will be dealt with by radical
forces within his Oriental world. If his "float-
ing constituency" actually sees him as leading
the vanguard out of the third world of realpol-
itick, then perhaps the moves last week will
have been prescient.
Until and unless all appropriate and demo-
cratic demands are met by those 'former'
terrorists, we cannot but hold out skeptical
hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Would that we were wrong.
U.S. Negative
On Settlements
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department reiter-
ated its longstanding position
that the establishment of addi-
tional Israeli settlements in
the administered territories is
"not helpful" in advancing
Middle East peace prospects.
Department spokeswoman
Phyllis Oakley would not com-
ment directly on a Likud-
Labor compromise to build
eight new settlements in the
coming year.
But she said the United
States considers-the building
of new settlements as "not
helpful in moving toward the
comprehensive peace settle-
ment that we all desire."

No Swiss Ban on Neo-Nazis
GENEVA (JTA) The Swiss government decided there was
no need to implement a law barring Nazi activity in Switzerland,
because there was no actual threat.
Police Minister Arnol Kholer said after a debate on the subject
that the several neo-Nazi incidents that have occurred in recent
months represent no real danger to democracy.
He said the government would follow these "symptoms"
closely but would take no "exceptional action."
Tel Aviv U. Profs Elected

States now "urge the Palestin-

the uprising" and "pursue
high-level talks with Israel" to
coordinate strategy on the
peace process.
The Union of Orthodox Jew-
ish Congregations of America,
which said the PLO "may have
met America's technical condi-
tions," said another "neces-
sary action" would be that the
PLO turn over Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas to Italy. He is
wanted there in connection
with the terrorist attack on the
cruise ship Achille Lauro.

1988 Year-End Inventory
and Impact
New York Five of the
ten events most significant to
American Jews in 1988 had to
do with Israel and the Middle
East, according to the annual
compilation prepared by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith. They included the
intifada, the "Who is a Jew"
controversy, and the U.S. deci-
sion to talk to the Palestinian
Liberation Organization.
The remaining five issues
were the growing menace of
neo-Nazi Skinheads, increased
manifestations of anti-Semi-
tism, U.S. passage of the Gen-
ocide Treaty, the increase in
Soviet Jewish emigration, and
the widespread observances of
the 50th anniversary of Kris-
tallnacht.
Israel's 40th anniversary.
Even with the serious prob-
lems facing Israel, it was a
cause for celebration.
The intifada. The up-
rising, which began in Decem-
ber 1987, has had a major
impact on all the parties to the
conflict Israel, Jordan, the
Palestinians.
The U.S. denial of a visa
to Yasir Arafat. Secretary of
State George P. Shultz stood
on principal in opposing the
Arafat visit despite the world
outcry.
The U.S. decision to talk
to the PLO. The U.S., deciding
that Yasir Arafat had met its
set of minimal standards for
talking with the PLO, decided
to do so while maintaining
America's commitment to dir-
ect negotiations, support for
Israel's security, and opposi-
tion to an imposed solution and
an independent Palestinian
state. Whether the PLO will
match words with deeds
including renunciation of its
Covenant and truly ending ter-
rorism remains to be seen.
The increase in Soviet
Jewish emigration. Glasnost,
openness, and perestroika,
restructuring, have had a posi-
tive impact on Soviet Jews.
The number permitted to leave
in 1988 increased 40 percent.
The growing menace of
neo-Nazi Skinheads. This new
breed of young extremists,
shaven-headed, wearing Nazi
insignia, preaching violence
against blacks, Jews and other
minorities, continued to grow
and is now evident in all parts
of the U.S. Their targeting of
vulnerable youth and alliance
with-other hate groups are
additionally worrisome.
Increased manifestations
of anti-Semitism. ADL's 1988
annual audit of anti-Semitic
incidents in the previous year
documented a rise for the first
time after a five year down-
ward trend.
The "Who is a Jew" con-
troversy. Ultra-Orthodox
demands for changes in
Israel's Law of Return could
not only affect some converts
to Judaism seeking citizenship
but also put in question the
legitimacy of Conservative and
Reform Judaism in Israeli
eyes. The issue has stirred the
American Jewish community
like few before it and Ameri-
can Jewish representations to
Israeli leaders have had a sig-
nificant impact.
U.S. passage of the Geno-
cide Treaty. Passage by the
Senate after so many years of
trying was testimony to the
work of one man William
Proxmire.
The 50th anniversary of
KristalXnacht. The widespread
observances of the event
which heralded the beginning
of the Holocaust give hope that
Kristallnacht will continue to
serve as a moral symbol and
lesson.

Armenian-Israelis Aid Quake Victims
Hundreds of Israelis jammed Magen David Adorn clinics
in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa to give blood following
the devastating earthquake in Soviet Armenia. Of some
200 blood donors in the capital, about 25 percent were
Israeli Armenians who live in the Armenian Quarter in the
Old City, one of the largest such communities in the world.
