Shamir Names Deputies
As Government Nears
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prime Minister-designate Yitz-
hak Shamir won unanimous approval for his new right-
wing government from the Likud Central Committee and
expressed confidence it would serve out a full term, despite
its narrow base.
But the coalition the Likud leader has put together with
the Orthodox and right-wing parties could founder in the
Knesset.
Shamir read out a list of Likud ministers identical to
those serving in the present transitional government.
He did not specify their portfolios. But David Levy may
be given the rank of vice premier and foreign minister.
Moshe Nissim's name was third on the list, indicating
most likely that he will hold the rank of deputy prime
minister.
Moshe Arens, foreign minister in the transitional regime,
is likely to be named defense minister in the new
government.
Ariel Sharon is expected to be appointed minister of
construction and housing. Yitzhak Moda'i will be the new
finance minister, the portfolio held in the unity government
by Labor Party leader Shimon Peres.
But Shamir, who officially informed President Chaim
Herzog late Friday afternoon that he had succeeded in
forming a government, faces residual disaffection within
Likud that could lose him his-two-vote edge in the
120-member parliament.

In Spite Of Threats
Exodus
Continues
By SPECIAL REPORT
Moscow Emigration of
Soviet Jews, Exodus II, con-
tinued unabated this week as
the Supreme Soviet Congress
delayed a decision on whether
to implement an implied threat
by President Mikhail S. Gorba-
chev.
The USSR parliament put
off, probably until September,
the codifation of an emigration
law required before President
George Bush will recommend
to the Senate that it grant
Most Favored Nation trading
status to the Soviet Union.
Gorbachev, citing tremen-
dous Arab pressure, shocked
Bush at the final press confer-
ence of the Washington Sum-
mit by saying he would have to
reconsider the granting of exit
visas to Soviet Jews unless
Israel guaranteed they would
not be resettled in the territor-
Moscow considers the
annexed portions of East Jeru-
salem as part of the territor-
ies. Israel says that well under
one percent of the Jews arriv-
ing in the Soviet Union move
to the territories, but neutral
sources say the figure climbs
to 10 percent if Jerusalem
annexations are included.
Some Israeli sources say
emigration may mount to near
20,000 this month if all the
European nations promising
to assist in Exodus II move
forward with their plans for
additional escape routes.
In Washington meantime, a
coalition of Democrats and
Republicans said the Congress
would not waive the Jacksor
Vanik Amendment to trade
with the Soviet unless Gorba-'
chev also substantially
changed his stance on Lithua-
nia and other Baltic countries
seeking independence.

WASHINGTON (JTA) Nine Soviet Jewry activists
failed to convince the regional manager of the Soviet
national airline Aeroflot to begin direct flights to Israel.
Rabbi Avraham Weiss, who led the group, even tried to lay
down cash for a ticket to Israel, but was politely told he
could not do so.
BONN (JTA) A group of prominent Germans, inclu-
ding scholars and industrialists, have proposed erecting the
first monument in Germany to the memory of Jews who
perished in the Holocaust. It would be located in the rebuilt
heart of a united Berlin, on the site of the chancery from
which Hitler ruled the Third Reich.
WARSAW (JTA) An international council will hold its
first meeting this month to chart the future of the
Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum at the site of the death camp,
which more than any other has become a universal symbol
of the Holocaust.
Technion Will Compete
In New Race To Moon
NEW YORK (JTA) What
floats in air, utilizes the rays of
the sun, can travel in outer
space and has a sail the size of
10 baseball fields? The solar
sailboat to the moon, of course!
Scientists and students from
various countries worldwide
are taking part in an unprece-
dented race to launch three
solar sailboats to the moon ,in
commemoration and celebra-
tion of the 500th anniversary
of Columbus' discovery of
America in 1492.
Called the Columbus 500
Space Sail Cup, the race is
being funded by the U.S. gov-
ernment to stimulate space
exploration and education
worldwide, as well as to mark
the quincentennial of Colum-
bus' momentous discovery.
Israel's Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology is
vying for the right to repre-
sent Europe. The Columbus
500 Space Sail Committee will
select three winners repre-
senting the Americas, Europe
and Asia. More than 40 institu-
tions worldwide will partici-
pate in the competition.
According to Professor
Giora Shaviv of the Technion
team, the Technion craft, if it
is selected, will encompass an
area of 10,000 meters and
weigh no more than 500 kilo-
grams.
The solar-powered "boat"
will be activated by remote
control upon its launch into
orbit and reach the moon
within two to six months of
lift-off.
The sail-crafts will be
launched in 1992, and if they
succeed, will become the first
carriers to land on the moon
without the benefit of rocket
boosters.
UCLA Students Fight
Chabad Dorm Takeover
LOS ANGELES (JTA) -
Residents of a Jewish student
housing cooperative picketed
the Los Angeles headquarters
of Chabad to protest what they
see as a takeover of their
residence to convert it into a
shelter for homeless men.
Some 40 residents and sup-
porters of the Westwood Bayit
marched in front of the nearby
Chabad building, chanting
"Save our Bayit/' and "Hell
no, we won't go!"
Chabad attorneys said that
the Hasidic movement
acquired legal title to the Bayit
last December, following a
period of financial difficulties,
health department violations
and physical deterioration at
the 20-bed residence on
UCLA's fraternity row.
The Westwood Bayit was
founded in the early 1970s by
university students seeking a
Jewish environment, kosher
food and coed living arrange-
ment near the UCLA campus.
It currently has 18 residents,
who claim that the house was
signed over to Chabad without
proper legal authority.
Lawyers on both sides have
been arguing over the cont-
ested agreement for over a
month, but matters came to a
head when Rabbi Boruch
Shlomo Cunin, West Coast
director of Chabad, arrived at
the Bayit with a van full of
helpers to remove furniture
and rugs from ground-level
rooms.
Resident students protested
and police were called to fore-
stall a shoving match, wit-
nesses said.

Also, the court rejected a

religious groups to reconsider
its April 17 decision allowing

Rights Movement, demanded
that he appear before the legis-
lature to give his account of
the matter.
"With such serious allega-
tions, a police investigation is
not enough," Cohen main-
tained.
The allegations include
offering the Jerusalem Religi-
ous Council $1 million to
appoint Deri's brother Yehuda
rabbi of the Ramot neighbor-
hood of Jerusalem, and a son
of former Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef rabbi of
the Har Nof neighborhood.
Yosef is the spiritual mentor
of Shas and supported Deri's
swift rise in the party.
Deri is also alleged to have
offered ministerial funds to
the town of Or Akiva, with
which Miami is "twinned" in
Operation Renewal, if it would
waive part of the $500,000 tax
owed by carpet manufacturer
Avraham Shapiro.
that might be banned by local
laws. An example would be
drinking of Kiddush wine by
minors not old enough to con-
sume alcohol legally.
In light of the court's refusal
to rehear the case, Jewish
groups such as Agudath Israel
of America and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith will now examine vari-
ous state laws to see if they
can be strengthened to protect
religious practices.
Mark Stern, legal director of
the American Jewish Con-
gress, said both court decisions
threaten religious liberty,
although he would not say
whether the greater threat is
government interference in
religious practice or govern-
ment "allowing itself to aid
religion."
Bush Defends Veto
On UN Resolution
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Bush defended the
U.S. decision late last week to
kill a Security Council resolu-
tion that would have sent a
three-member U.N. delegation
to investigate the recent
upsurge of violence in the
administered territories.
The situation leading up to
the U.N. vote was com-
pounded by the "outrageous
guerilla attack launched
against Israel," Bush said at a
joint news conference with
Soviet President Mikhail Gor-
bachev.
He was referring to the
aborted seaborne attack by
heavily armed terrorists from
the Palestine Liberation Front
on two Israeli beaches packed
with Israeli vacationers over
the Shavuot holiday.
The U.S. vote against the
resolution, which was sup-
ported by the 14 other mem-
bers of the Security Council,
blocked its adoption. The
United States is one of five
permanent Security Council
members with that veto
power.
The resolution, introduced
by the Arab bloc, called for a
three-member commission of
the Security Council to investi-
gate the "policy and practices
of Israel, the occupying
power" and the "deteriorating
situation" in the Israeli-
administered territories and
East Jerusalem.
The delegation was to report
back by June 20, after which
the council would reconvene to
discuss "ways and means of
ensuring the safety and pro-
tection of the Palestinian civili-
ans" in the territories.
It was proposed May 25 in
Geneva, where the Security
Council convened for a special
session to hear Palestine Lib-
eration Organization leader
Yasir Arafat address the
upsurge of violence in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip
after a lone Israeli gunman
shot seven Palestinian wor-
kers to death May 20 near the
Israeli town of Rishon le-Zion.
The United States originally
expressed support in Geneva

But few if any details oi the
inquiry's findings will be publi-
shed for security reasons.
The IDF Chief of Staff, Gen.
Dan Shomron, and the heads
of the intelligence and naval
branches of the military
briefed the Cabinet on the IDF
general staffs inquiry.
The Cabinet noted in its offi-
cial communique that "the
IDF, the Israeli police and
other security forces saved
thousands of lives from tra-
gedy. "Protecting the coast is
not an easy task. Therefore,
there is room to be proud of
the security forces' opera-
tion."
The IDF nevertheless con-
cedes that luck played a large
hand in foiling the attack May
30, the Shavuot holiday, when
thousands of Israelis dotted
the beaches, enjoying the
warm, pleasant weather.
The only blood that was shed
in the aborted attack belonged
to the attackers, four of whom
were killed and 12 captured by
security forces before they
could inflict any casualties or
damage.
But some ministers were
highly critical of the IDF's
decision not to evacuate the
beaches immediately upon.
learning of the impending
assault by terrorists belonging
to the Palestine Liberation
Front, led by Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas.
Several ministers, admitting
they are not military experts,
said they nonetheless failed to
understand why bathers were
allowed to remain after the
first reports were received of
terrorist activity.
Last week, former defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin told
Israel Radio that intelligence
reports received about five
months ago indicated that
Abbas was in Libya planning a
seaborne assault on Israel. It
was not known, however,
when or where it would occur.

Exodus Continues
Continued from Page 1
American Jewish leaders did
not hesitate to voice their
concern over the Soviet
leader's unprecedented
announcement.
"It is not an issue at this
time," White House spokes-
man Marlin Fitzwater said.
"But certainly the President
will have to review the mat-
ter" if exit permits are halted.
Fitzwater said that Bush had
made clear in signing a trade
agreement with Gorbachev
that he would not send the
agreement to Congress for
ratification until the Supreme
Soviet adopted new legislation
codifying the Soviet's more
liberal emigration policies.
At the State Department,
spokeswoman Margaret
Tutwiler said there was "noth-
ing said in private conversa-
tions" during the summit that
"indicated in any way that the
Soviets would not live up to
their commitment" to allow
Jews to emigrate.
After Gorbachev made his
surprise threat, Secretary of
State James Baker said, "We
unconditionally support the
concept of Soviet Jewish emi-
gration."
In New York, Natan Shar-
ansky held a special news con-
ference to express his outrage
over the Soviet leader's
remark. He was in New York
for two days to raise funds for
Soviet Jewish resettlement in
Israel.
Peace Now Says
Police Biased
TEL AVIV (JTA) Peace
Now activists have accused the
police of taking "illegal meas-
ures" to discourage demon-
strations, such as the one it
held in Tel Aviv to protest the
stalemated peace process and
mourn the May 20 massacre of
seven Palestinian day laborers
near Rishon le- Zion by a lone
Jewish gunman. The police
contend that Peace Now orga-
nizers did not observe the
ground rules governing mass
demonstrations.
A crowd estimated at
between 15,000 and 50,000
marched from the Tel Aviv
Museum to Malchei Yisrael
Square in front of the City Hall
under the slogan "Stop Killing
and Begin Talking."
Speakers at the rally
accused right-wing and nation-
alist political leaders, religious
leaders and judges who impose
light sentences on Jews con-
victed of killing Arabs of "giv-
ing the green light to murder."
Board Denies
British
Anti-Semitism
LONDON (JTA) The
Board of Deputies of British
Jews, put on the defensive by
charges that it deliberately
played down anti-Semitic inci-
dents, stated categorically this
week that "there is no con-
certed anti-Semitic campaign
in Britain." Dr. Lionel Kope-
lowitz, president of the board,
which is the representative
body of British Jewry, admit-
ted, however, that "anti-
Semitic incidents have
increased."
Shamir
Defiant
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir responded defiantly to
Soviet President Mikhail Gor-
bachev's threat to cut off Jew-
ish emigration from the Soviet
Union unless Israel guarantees
the immigrants will not be
settled in the West Bank or
Gaza Strip.
Speaking in Tel Aviv to the
Israel Association of Industri-
alists, Shamir said Israel
would not agree to the crea-
tion "of ghettos or pales of
settlement, either for olim or
for old-timers." By "pales of
settlement," he meant the
areas of Czarist Russia to
which Jews were once
restricted.
Shamir observed that the
Soviet Union itself no longer
"tells people where they may
or may not live," and he said
that Israel, as a democratic
and free society, would cer-
tainly not "impose restrictions
upon any category of resi-
dent."
But Simcha Dinitz, chairman
of the Jewish Agency Execu-
tive, urged the Israeli govern-
ment to "set aside all other
considerations, including ideo-
logical considerations" in the
interest of getting "as many
Jews as possible" out of the
Soviet Union "in the shortest
possible time."
Dinitz, whose agency assists
the government in bringing
immigrants to Israel, pointed
out that "regrettably, the key
to Soviet aliyah is not in Sha-
mir's hands, but in Gorba-
chev's."
The Jewish Agency's long-
standing policy, he stressed,
has been not to "spend a single
cent" of funds raised by the
United Jewish Appeal "in set-
tling either new immigrants or
veteran Israelis in the territor-
ies.'
He suggested the govern-
ment might do well to adopt
the same approach, given the
"worrying import" of Gorba-
chev's statement.

Viewpoint
Supreme Court
Decisions Worrisome
It may be too early to evaluate a pair of
Supreme Court decisions this week which
affect the separation of church and state in
the USA.
An 8-1 decision granting religious clubs
the same right to use public school facilities
as other extra-curricula organizations could
be the opening wedge towards allowing
public prayer back in, but there's little in
the stated opinions of the justices to sup-
port that premise.
And a verdict that Oregon can prosecute
American Indians for using what they
consider religious objects in their religious
practices doesn't seem to realistically
threaten such practices as the drinking of
ceremonial wine in Jewish ceremonies.
Certainly, though, Jewry must carefully
monitor the evolvement of state reactions
to the two decisions. Indications are that
many non-fundamentalist Christian groups
will join Jewish organizations in not merely
protesting the decisions, but in guarding
against too broad an interpretation of
them.
Arafat's Inaction Speaks Loudly
The abortive Palestinian terrorist attack
on the beaches near Tel Aviv has succeeded
in dramatically shifting world opinion on
the Israeli-Arab conflict.
PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat's failure to
condemn the onslaught against Israeli civil-
ians by a major division of the Palestine
Liberation Organization shook Arafat's
claim that he has renounced terrorism and
only seeks peace.
Coming shortly after the solitary action
by a deranged Israeli in gunning down
Arab laborers, the attempted assault
mounted from Libya strengthened Israeli's
hesitancy in ever talking to the PLO.
While the United States may not now
terminate dialogue with the PLO, it can
more strongly reject Arab attempts to
secure American pressure against Israel in
setting ground rules for furthering the
peace process.
Bush, Gorbachev Gain Delay
The Supreme Soviet Congress may well
have taken both Presidents Bush and Gor-
bachev ofi the hook in its postponement in
considering a USSR emigration law which
has been demanded by the United States.
Bush took a gamble in saying he would
recommend waiving Jackson-Vanik even
though the Soviets failed to yield on their
crackdown on Lithuania. And Gorbachev
took an even greater chance when he
threatened to slow down, or even halt, the
outflow of the Jews if Israel doesn't pledge
not to settle any in the territories.
But with a delay until September, Gorba-
chev will have more time to settle relations
with the rebellious Baltic republics, and
Israel will have more months to demon-
strate that it is not encouraging settlement
in the West Bank or Gaza.
Both Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Jewish Agency head Simcha Dinitz have
valid points in their response to the Soviet
demands on limiting the settlement of olim.
Rather than emphasizing their ideological
differences, both men should point out to
the world how few Soviet Jews are opting
for the territories.
An even stronger obligation for both
world Jewry and the State of Israel is to
maintain the rights of Jews to settle any-
where in their own capital of Jerusalem. On
that point, there can be no compromise.

Vatican Council II -
25 Years Later
NEW YORK (JTA)-In the
coming weeks and months, a
spate of conferences and insti-
tutes will be held in many
parts of the United States,
Europe, Latin America and
Israel to mark the 25th anni-
versary of the adoption of
Nostra Aetate, the Vatican
Declaration dealing with
Catholic-Jewish relations.
That historic declaration,
adopted overwhelmingly on
Oct. 28, 1965, by 2,500
Catholic leaders from through-
out the world at Vatican Coun
cil II, transformed Catholic
Jewish relations
Cynics and extremists who
oppose involvement in
Catholic- Jewish relations
point only to current problems
and avoid or deny the progress
that has been made. Despite
its limitations, Nostra Aetate
has resulted in maior changes
in Catholic attitudes towards
Jews and Judaism, and even
toward Israel.
In contrast to the Baltimore
Catechism of 1937, which was
virtually a manual in teaching
anti-Semitism, the majority of
Catholic textbooks used in par-
ochial schools today are free of
any anti-Jewish references.
Similar improvements have
taken place in Catholic liturgy,
sermons, mass media, Catholic
teaching in seminaries, col-
leges and universities. Don't
take my word for it; the evi-
dence is available for any fair-
minded person to see and
judge.
Critics will resist believing
this, but we have also seen the
beginning of meaningful
changes in Vatican and
Catholic attitudes toward
Israel and Jerusalem.
At a conference in which I
took part four years ago
between the Vatican and
International Jewish delega-
tions, the Vatican's officials
wrote into our joint communi-
que "There exist no theologi-
cal objections to the existence
of the sovereign state of
Israel; only unresolved politi-
cal problems stand in the way
of full normalization of diplo-
matic relations between the
Holy See and Israel."
Earlier this year, the Ameri-
can Catholic hierarchy adopted
a statement on the Middle
East in which they did not
question the right to Israel's
sovereignty over a unified Jer-
usalem, but focused their conc-
erns on assurance to free
access to all holy places.
When I was in Rome as a
delegate observer to Vatican
Council II, there was a "con-
spiracy." It was a powerful
conspiracy between a number
of ultra-conservative Catholic
bishops several of them
explicitly anti-Semitic who
joined forces with Arab pre
lates and Egypt's President
Gamal Abdel Nasser, who
tried to defeat Nostra Aetate.
They believed that any Vati
can declaration that conde-
mned anti-Semitism and said
positive things about Jews and
Judaism would be either a
reversal of Catholic theology
or a political victory for Israel.
A monumental struggle was
carried out by friendly
Catholic cardinals and their
Jewish allies, and the pro-
Jewish forces finally prevailed.
The late Cardinal Augustin
Bea. Vatican Secretariat presi
dent, Cardinal Lawrence She-
han of Baltimore, the entire
American Catholic hierarchy
and numerous European and
Latin American bishops were
the moral heroes in that just
cause.
This 25th anniversary year
is an important time to take
stock of the progress made and
the major work still to be done.
Above all, it is a time to
acknowledge that without the
commitment, dedication and
very trying work of both
Catholic and Jewish leaders in
Rome from 1962 to 1965, there
would have been no Nostra
Aetate, and probably very lit-
tle to celebrate in Catholic-
Jewish relations today and
tomorrow.

national relations consultant to the

Sephardim Will Receive
Major Spanish Award
By DAVID KANTOR
MADRID (JTA) Spain is
awarding one of its most pres-
tigious prizes, the Prince of
Asturias Prize, to world
Sephardic Jewry, the descend-
ants of the Jews expelled from
Spain 500 years ago.
The award was announced
by the Principality of Asturias
Foundation in the northwest
city of Oviedo, near the Bay of
Biscay.
Presentation is made there
annually by the Prince of
Asturias, the son of King Juan
Carlos and Queen Sophia, who
is accompanied by his parents
on the occasion.
According to the foundation,
which was established in
Oviedo in 1980, the prize is
granted for solidarity, and can
be awarded to an individual,
group or institution in any
country of the world.
While it recognizes efforts to
transcend national boundaries
in the interests of the brother-
hood of man, it is also awarded
for struggles against poverty,
sickness or ignorance, and to
individuals or groups which
open new boundaries of know-
ledge.
Decision to award the prize
to Sephardic Jewry, whose
expulsion from Spain will be
commemorated in a series of
national events in 1992, was
seen as an effort renew the
Spanish dialogue with the Jew-
ish people and improve rela-
tions with Israel.
Spanish radio and television
carried announcements of the
award. The Israeli Embassy in
Madrid and Jewish community
centers all over the country
were soon flooded with con-
gratulatory telephone calls.
Prize consists of a document,
a distinctive symbol in the
form of a sculpture by Joan
Miro, and 5 million pesetas,
the equivalent of nearly
$50,000.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Tor ah Portion
The spies return from Canaan bearing a cluster of grapes.
And they came unto the valley ofEshcol, and cut down one
luster of grapes (Num. 13.23).
, SHELAH
SHELAH At Kadesh, in the wilderness of Paran, the children
of Israel asked Moses to send forth scouts to reconsider the land
of Canaan. When Uod consented, twelve spies were dispatched,
one from each tribe, with specific instructions. Forty days later,
the spies returneu bearing the fruit of the land, as evidence of its
fertility. But most ol them came back with a pessimistic report:
the natives of Canaan were mighty men, the cities strongly
fortified. It was a lana that "eateth up the inhabitants thereof
(Numbers 13.32). 01 all the spies, only Joshua, the son of Nun, of
the tribe of Ephraim. the Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, of the tribe
of Judah, declared there was nothing to fear from the natives of
< anaan. The Israelites, frightened by the fearful majority report,
cried tearfully: "Were it not better for us to return into Egypt?"
/Numbers 1J,.3). Cod grew wrathful at this lack of confidence in
Him, and would have destroyed the entire congregation, were it
not for Moses' intercession. However, He vowed that before the
Israelites might enter the Promised Land they would wander in
the desert for 40 years, until the entire rebellious generation
those above 20 years of age should perish.

U.S. Court
Can Decide
PLO Case
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Palestine Liberation
Organization suffered a legal
blow when a U.S. court in New
York said it had the right to
rule who was responsible for
tossing a crippled American
man into the Mediterranean
Sea in 1985.
Leon Klinghoffer, a wheel-
chair-bound Jewish man from
New York, was shot and
thrown off the Achille Lauro
cruise ship by members of the
Palestine Liberation Front
who had seized the cruise ship
in the Mediterranean.
The front, a PLO constituent
group headed by Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas, has also been
linked to a failed terrorist
attack May 30 on beaches out-
side of Tel Aviv.
The ruling, by U.S. District
Court Judge Louis Stanton in
Manhattan, marks the first
time a federal court has
accepted jurisdiction to rule on
international terrorism inci-
dents. A trial date has not
been set.
Neo-Nazi Ban
Lifted In Berlin

mission confirmed Thursday
that the Allied powers for the
first time since 1969 have not
renewed the longstanding
restrictions on the extreme
right-wing group.

housed, the museum will fea-
ture artifacts, photographs of
the camp and its residents, a
theater showing actual film

Kibbutz Youth:
'No" To Drugs
BEERSHEBA (JTA) A
report on substance abuse at
kibbutzim in the Negev indi-
cates some use of illicit "soft"
drugs as often as once a

youths who were "going
steady" were more likely to
use "soft" drugs, which
include marijuana and hashish.
But the overall results of the
study, which was made in the
past five months, are optimis-
tic. It found that over 74 per
cent of young people on Negev
kibbutzim reported never hav-
ing used illegal drugs.
The study was conducted at
Ben-Gurion University of the
Negev by Dr. Richard Isralow-
itz, a New Jersey native who

South Africa And The Jews: Lesson To Learn
By ARNO HERZBERG
Union, N.J. (JTA) For
many weeks, headlines blared
the news that Nelson Mandela,
leader of the black African
National Congress, was freed
after 27 years of captivity by
the white regime, and that a
new and benevolent govern-
ment would bring to South
Africa a new dawn of racial
harmony. Too many were too
glad.
The South African Board of
Deputies, the central organiza-
tion of Jews, hailed Mandela's
release and the lifting of the
ban on the ANC, and expre-
ssed hope that the measures
would "create an atmosphere
for the establishment of gen-
uine democracy for the benefit
of the country and all its peo-
ples."
South African Chief Rabbi
Cyril Harris assured his listen-
ers that he had been very
impressed by the steps taken
by the government.
In Israel, Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens was full of
praise. Replying to two
motions in the Knesset to
invite an official ANC delega-
tion headed by Nelson Man-
dela to visit Israel, Deputy
Foreign Minister Binyamin
Netanyahu assured his listen-
ers that the suggestion would
be considered in a positive
light.
In London, Dennis Goldberg,
the only white man jailed with
Nelson Mandela, raised the
flag of the ANC to celebrate
Mandela's release. Liberals all
over the world took heart.
And then came the bomb-
shell.
Whenever there is an oppor-
tunity to stir the brew of inter-
national relations, we should
know that Yasir Arafat will be
close at hand. He showed up in
South Africa, threw his arms
around Mandela and kissed
him on both cheeks.
"Like us. he is fighting
against a unique form of colo-
nialism and we wish him suc-
cess in his struggle," said Man-
dela, adding. "If the truth
alienates the powerful Jewish
community in South Africa,
that's too bad."
years of captivity to right a
wrong; a woman like Helen
Suzman who for years was the
only voice in Parliament to
argue against injustices
against blacks.
Forgotten is that friend of
Mandela who, 30 years ago,
helped him when he was on the
run from the security police.
Cecil Eprile has now written
an open letter to Mandela urg-
ing him to reassure Jews thats
he is not anti-Semitic. He did
not get an answer. Forgotten
is all the assistance and the
help anti- apartheid policies
received from Jews all over
the world. I wonder whether
we will ever learn to mind our
The day before Mandela was released from
prison, demonstrators burned the Israeli flag and
carried posters saying, "Jews are sucking the
country dry," "Hitler was right," and
"Communism is Jewish."
He was only echoing the
"that's too bad" of another
black leader, Archbishop
Desmond Tutu, whom New
York Mayor David Dinkins
selected as a speaker for his
New York inauguration. "If I
am accused of being anti-
Semitic," said Tutu, "tough
luck. My dentist's name is Dr.
Cohen."
All of sudden, the tables
have turned. All of a sudden,
the situation has changed
beyond recognition. Forgotten
are the sacrifices the Jews
made to fight apartheid. For-
gotten is a man like Dennis
Goldberg, who endured 22

The Jews in South Africa are
now sandwiched between two
camps. On the one hand, they
must watch out for the uncon-
trolled transfer of power to the
black majority, and will have
to rely on President F.W. de
Klerk's assurance that the
position of the white minority
will not be subject to majority
rule.
In the end. their future will
depend on the outcome of
negotiations between blacks
and whites. They will have the
same fear of nationalization
and redistribution of wealth
that all other whites will have.
On the other hand, they
must also watch for the una-
voidable backlash of the white
right wing, which is telling the
Jews that they are responsible
for the collapse of apartheid
and for the country's libera-
tion.
The day before Mandela was
released from prison, demon-
strators burned the Israeli flag
and carried posters saying,
"Jews are sucking the country
dry," "Hitler was right," and
it
onxwiwi eerier Bourootsic mVc
South Africa's N
"Communism is Jewish."
That the Israeli flag was
burned by that mob in Pretoria
is significant. It means that
there are forces at work within
South Africa which consider
Israel their worst enemy. It
would be good if President
Bush and Secretary of State
James Baker would take note
of it.
Those two object to the rela-
tions Israel has with South
Africa, which are purely an
outgrowth of commitments
made years ago and which are.
by all accounts, extremely
exaggerated.
American governments, on
the other hand, have ignored
for many years the oil deliver-
ANOELA
ies Arab countries make to
South Africa. Without them,
South Africa's economy would
be at a standstill and their
government would have been
forced long ago to capitulate to
the sanctions the Dis-United
Nations have promulgated.
It is obvious that these oil
deliveries are of extreme
importance to South Africa.
For this reason, any mention
of the source of oil deliveries is
subject to a heavy fine and
seven years' imprisonment.
To reveal where all that oil is
coming from would expose the
Arabs in all their hypocrisy for
all the world to see. But who
talks about that?
