Arafat Makes Move
To Diminish Terrorism
Yasir Arafat has instructed his
terrorist corps, Al Fatah, to
halt all military operations
against Israeli and Jewish tar-
gets abroad, Israel has
The Palestine Liberation
Organization leader's move
was confirmed by senior Israel
Defense Force officers, who
briefed the Cabinet.
The report is the first indica-
tion that the PLO is cutting
terrorist activities since Ara-
fat explicitly renounced all
forms of terrorism at the UN
General Assembly session in
Geneva Dec. 14.
The IDF chief of staff, Gen.
Dan Shomron, and other rank-
ing IDF officers said Arafat's
orders have been obeyed. But
at the same time, Arafat
instructed his followers in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip to
continue and intensify the
Palestinian uprising.
The PLO seems to be in a
quandry over continuing
attacks along Israel's borders,
because it does not want to
spoil its newly won dialogue
with the United States, based
in large measure on Arafat's
renunciation of terrorism.
Arafat has told the Ameri-
cans, on the other hand, that
the uprising is not terrorism
and that, in any event, he has
no control over it.
According to the IDF offi-
cers, the situation on the
northern border remains
unclear. They said they would
not be surprised if some Fatah
units joined more radical
Palestinian groups attempting
to infiltrate. The idea is to see
how the United States would
Meanwhile, Defense Minis-
ter Yitzhak Rabin is reported
to have resumed contacts with
non-PLO Palestinians from
the territories to explore the
possibility of a dialogue exclud-
ing the PLO.
According to Haaretz, the
meetings have taken place in
Rabin's Tel Aviv office. The
Palestinians have not been
identified to protect them from
One of the subjects discussed
is the possibility of local elec-
tions in the territories from
which a non-PLO Palestinian
leadership could emerge,
Haaretz military correspon-
ds, met recently with Arafat
supporters, and members of
both the Palestinian Commun-
ist Party and of Hamas,
according to AI Hamishmar.
Hamas, a Moslem fundamen-
talist group, has challenged
the PLO for leadership of
West Bank Palestinians.
The Israelis sought to clarify
one of the main issues, the
"right of return," which none
of the Palestinians seemed
willing to forego, the paper
No PLO Attacks Since November
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Palestine Liberation Organization
has not engaged in military activity or terrorist acts along
Israel's borders since November, the Israel Defense Force chief
of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Shomron, told a Knesset panel.
Addressing the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee,
Shomron said that while the PLO has issued no specific orders to
desist, its "moderation" is visible.
It was the second time in a week that Shomron and other
senior IDF officers spoke of an observable change in PLO
A group of them briefing the Cabinet said PLO chief Yasir
Arafat had instructed his terrorist corps, Al Fatah, to halt
military operations against Jewish targets in Israel and abroad.
The officers said, however, that the situation on the northern
border remained unclear. _______

The PLO has forbidden dis-

Israeli officials are talking to
Palestinians known to be sup-
porters of Arafat.
Al Hamishmar reported
that Deputy Finance Minister
Yossi Beilin, a close associate
of Shimon Peres, met recently
with Palestinians described as
pro-PLO centrists.
They included Hanna Sen-

In addition, the walls were

Charges Filed Against AIPAC
Seven critics of Israel, backed
by an Arab lobbying group,
have filed legal charges with
the Federal Election Commis-
sion against the American
Israel Public Affairs Commit-
tee, 27 pro-Israel political
action committees and 26 of
their officers.
In a 100-page brief, released
to reporters, the complainants
allege that AIPAC illegally
coordinates the PACs' contri-
butions to various political
campaigns. This is the first
time charges have been filed
with the FEC against AIPAC,
the registered pro-Israel lob-
bying group in the United
The effort is being spear-
headed by the American-Arab
Anti-Defamation Committee.
The seven complainants
include George Ball, under-
secretary of state from 1961 to
1966, and former Rep. Paul
Findley (R-Ili.), who has attrib-
uted his 1982 defeat to pro-
Israel activists.
The basic charge against
AIPAC and the PACs is that
they engage in a "campaign of
collusion" by directing PACs
to contribute funds to particu-
lar congressional challengers
and incumbents.
As evidence of collusion, the
complainants cite similarities
in funding decisions by various
PACs, as well as a 1986 memo-
randum from AIPAC staffer
Elizabeth Schrayer that they
say suggests campaign contri-
butions by nine pro-Israel
Responding to the allega-
tions, AIPAC spokeswoman
Toby Dershowitz said,
"AIPAC members proudly
participate in the American
political process and do so
within the law." She added
that AIPAC is "confident that
the FEC will expeditiously
Once the FEC receives a
complaint, it has five days to
advise the target of the
charges to respond, according
to Fred Eiland, a commission
spokesman. AIPAC and the 27
PACs would have 15 days to
do so.
The six FEC commissioners
then vote on whether federal
election laws have possibly
been violated. Four of the six
must vote affirmatively to
spur an investigation, Eiland
If the investigation finds
"probable cause" that election
law has been violated, the FEC
can negotiate a civil penalty
and pursue the case in the U.S.
court system, he said.
AIPAC could not be charged
with violating election laws
unless the complainants
proved that the lobby estab-
lished, maintained, controlled,
financed or administered more
than one of the PACs, David
Ifshin, AIPAC's counsel, said
in a telephone interview.
He said that while there was
direct contact between AIPAC
and the PACs on "isolated
occasions, "that "does not
meet the burden of proof."

Human Rights Conference
Human Rights Promise
The dilemma is as much about ethical attri-
butes as it is about logistics and location.
The Soviet Union has been approved as the
site for a human rights conference in 1991.
The locale has heretofore been in Vienna.
While those who tally counts and measure
substantiative changes in the human rights
arena acknowledge that the USSR has taken
strides to improve its record in those areas,
there are others who suggest that too little has
been done too late to merit such a conference
in the Soviet Union.
The flip side of the argument, of course, is
that since so much has been accomplished
under the current regime of Mikhail Gorba-
chev and his dual policies of perestroika and
glasnost, that the government is entitled to
something of a reward.
Hence, awarding the conference to Moscow.
The middle ground taken by third parties is
that the planned conference may act as a
further catalyst for even more advances in the
field of human rights.
Surely, the Soviet Union's president would
be excruciatingly embarrassed on the inter-
national stage should his nation not play out
its appropriate part given the venue of the
1991 stage.
So, there is little to lose.
President Reagan, in a well-worded caveat,
warned that the United States, for one, would
not be held hostage to a calendar date in the
Soviet Union if that republic did not make
good on the promise of its present thrust.
We concur with that position. It holds open
the window of opportunity without precluding
its closure should subsequent events warrant
doing so.
Unethical Research
West German university officials seem to
have missed the point with their denials that
no Jewish victims' remains are being used in
research when the state television station
reported that tissues and bones of Holocaust
victims were still being utilized for medical
With no official denial of the practice, it
would seem that the mindset which allowed
experimentation on Hitler's hapless victims
has not been expunged from the German
That the bodies' identities are known
some apparently were prominent anti-Nazis
further compounds the insensitivity, even
after 45 years.
Many Challenges for Change
For the Jewish community,
1988 was not the worst of
years, but, it was far from the
best of years.
Some good things happened,
among them the emigration of
some 19,000 Jews from the
Soviet Union and the passage
by Congress of the Genocide
Convention Implementation
But 1988 was haunted by the
"Who Is a Jew" controversy in
Israel, and the turmoil over
Middle East peace. While
Israel's new unity government
may have defused the "Who Is
a Jew" issue for the time
being, it would be naive to
pretend it has gone away.
1989 must see major efforts
by rabbis and lay leaders in
all Jewish religious groups
to find a procedure for conver-
sion to Judaism that could be
adopted by all. The future of
the Jewish people depends on
The other burning issue a
trustworthy peace with the
Palestinians will continue to
dominate in the coming year.
In the wake of the tragic Pan
Am explosion, all Americans
as well as Jews are fiercely
against terrorism. But that
anger does not absolve Israel,
the Palestinians and the Arab
states from putting aside rhet-
oric and negativism and pursu-
ing actively realistic peace init-
If 1989 is to be more peace-
ful than last year, it will
require nothing less than a set
change in attitude among
many people in many places.
B'nai Israel Hopes To Feed The Hungry
Congregation B'nai Israel of
Boca Raton, in partnership
with the California-based
"Mazon" (Hebrew for suste-

"There is more than enough
wealth and more than enough
food in this country to feed
every man, woman and child in
a proper fashion," explained
B'nai Israel's spiritual leader,
Rabbi Richard Agler. "We

A Retrospective: Dealing With Anti-Semitism
During the heat of the presi-
dential campaign, the Bush
camp was subject to allega-
tions of anti-Semitism.
Several persons who infil-
trated the then-vice presi-
dent's Ethnic Advisory Com-
mittee were compelled, quite
appropriately, to resign
because of their ties to a Nazi
past; and Fred Malek, Bush's
man at the Republican
National Committee, voluntar-
ily stepped down when infor-
mation resurfaced that, while
chief of presidential personnel
in the Nixon White House he,
at the behest of the then presi-
dent, asked for a head count of
Jews then serving in the Labor
Department's Bureau of Labor
Some Democrats, including
then-presidential nominee
Michael Dukakis, tried to por-
tray these instances as proof
that Jews do not really have a
home with George Bush or in
the Republican party and that
it is time for Jews to return to
their traditional base, the
Democratic Party.
An objective appraisal, how-
ever, of the record of the Rea-
gan-Bush administration
shows that these views simply
do not square with the facts.
The record demonstrates
beyond doubt that the Reagan-
Bush administration stood fast
against anti-Semitism in what-
ever form or vestige.
I know. I was there. As a
part (and incidentally, a rather
senior Jewish member) of the
Reagan-Bush administration I
was personally involved in
many matters relevant here.

believe, set the record
straight. It was the Reagan-
Bush administration which:"

in the war against terrorism
perpetrated by the PLO.
Under the leadership of this
administration, the PLO infor-
mation office in Washington
was shut down, and that action
successfully defended in court.
