Leningrad Refusenik Irina Jacobson
Given Permission to Leave Russia
SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) Leningrad refusenik
Irina Jacobson has received permission to leave the Soviet
Union. Jacobson, the widow of the famed choreographer
Leonid Jacobson, worked with the Kirov Ballet Theater
until her husband's death. Irina Jacobson, a refusenik
since 1980, will be leaving the Soviet Union with her 28-
year-old son, Nikolai, on Sept. 10.
The Cabinet
flatly rejected suggestions
attributed to the Reagan
Administration supporting
the idea of a demilitarized
independent Palestinian
state on the West Bank and
the Gaza Strip.
The cabinet acted after hearing
a report on the talks by Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon with Ad-
ministration officials in Wash-
ington. According to the report,
one of the ideas suggested to
Sharon was the proposal for such
a Palestinian state.
Observers said the report
seemed to confirm Israeli fears
that the Reagan Administration
was considering new ways to
break the impasse over the au-
tonomy talks called for in the
Camp David accords. It appeared
that the Reagan Administration
apparently has not yet formalized
specific ideas to get the stalled
autonomy talks resumed but the
understanding here is that the
wind is blowing in a direction
"not in accordance with the
Camp David accords."
was informed that the Reagan
Administration hoped to use the
Israeli success in Israel's "Peace
for Galilee" operation in Lebanon
to convince Premier Menachem
Begin's coalition that Israel was
militarily powerful enough to
deal with any problems a Pales-
tinian state might pose.
But the consensus at the Cabi-
net session was that not even a
demilitarized Palestinian state
was a subject for negotiations.
As one minister put it, "How
long would that state remain de-
Sharon reported that Secretary
of State George Shultz, with
whom he met last Friday, reiter-
ated the United States commit-
ment to Israel's security but re-
portedly gave "wide ranging in-
terpretations" to the Camp Da-
vid accords.
When Sharon repeated to
Shultz Israel's opposition to a
Palestinian state, Shultz report-
edly replied that the United
States, too, opposed the creation
of "an armed and dangerous
state." That comment by Shultz
was understood here as a hint
that the Reagan Administration
was moving toward acceptance of
an independent demilitarized
Palestinian state.
spoke of the need to make an ef-
fort to induce Jordan to join in
the Mideast peace talks, as an
Arab country "which should
have a vital role in the Camp Da-
vid process." Shultz was under-
stood to have said he felt
bringing Jordan into the talks
was still possible. This remark,
too, was interpreted in Jerusalem
as a hint of a possible United
States effort to bring new part-
ners into the peace process, pre-
sumably on Israel's behalf.
Premier Menachem Begin said
that if the Americans, or Egypt,
for that matter, sought to intro-
duce basic changes in the Camp
David accords, Israel would con-
sider itself free of its obligations
under those accords. This was
considered by observers as a hint
that Israel would no longer
regard itself as limited in acting
to annex the West Bank and the
Gaza Strip.
Begin told the Cabinet meeting
that the Egyptians were trying to
bring into the autonomy negotia-
tions a document which had been
rejected by then President Carter
at the talks at Camp David from
which the Camp David accords
emerged. It was generally agreed
in Jerusalem that Israel would
not lose out if the autonomy talks
were adjourned indefinitely, aa
the Egyptians have threatened.
PLO Gone Reagan's 'Fresh Start' Plan Rejected by Israel
With 15.000 PLO guerrillas expelled from Beirut -
but with another 15,000 still in Lebanon and thousands
of Syrian troops still in the Bekaa Valley, President
Ronald Heagan decided it was time to propose a new
plan to try to achieve Arab-Israel peace.
He sent a letter to Prime Minister Menachem Begin
last week and went on nation-wide TV to spell out a
plan to freeze the number of Israeli settlements on the
West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and seek Jordan's aid
in helping to govern the West Bank so that the Pales-
tinians could achieve self-rule.
Prime Minister Begin's Cabinet, at a hastily-called
emergency meeting on the following morning (Sept. 2),
rejected the plan out of hand as a "deviation of the
Camp David Peace Accords." Casper Weinberger, U.S.
Defense Secretary, was in Israel to detail specifics of
Reagan's proposals in a meeting with Begin at the
northern city of Nahariya.
Meanwhile Yasser Arafat, who was among those ex-
pelled from Beirut, was welcomed with open arms in
Greece where the government has been tolerating a
wave of anti-Semitism. One of his top aides said that
President Reagan's plan sounds good for the PLO. And
Jordan's Ambassador to the U.S. said the "Fresh
Start" proposed by Reagan has some "positive as-
pects'" but refused to indicate whether Jordan would
join the U.S., Egypt and Israel in peace talks.
Most Arab emissaries said the Arab answer would
probably be made at this week's Arab League meeting
at which Arafat is expected to be among those in atten-
dance. The PLO, according to reports, may create a new
headquarters in Syria or in Tunisia.

Liberal Era Ending
Will U.S. Stop Old Immigration Policy?
Copyright Baltimore Jewish Times

American immigration
reform has not exactly been
a burning issue for most
Jews these days. When the
subject has come up at all
in ordinary conversation,
opinion has often tended to
polarize at one or another of
two rather simplistic ex-
tremes: either "fling the
gates open" or "slam the
gates shut."
The latter opinion seems
to gain favor the closer one
comes to Florida or Cali-
fornia and their environs,
where Jews, in common
with many other Ameri-
cans, have joined in raising
the alarm over recent heavy
influxes of Hispanic illegal
aliens from the Caribbean
and Mexico.
Jewish organizations, by and
large, have been moving warily
as a debate over immigration
both legal and illegal has been
heating up. The Simpson-Mazzoli
Bill, a sweeping immigration re-
form plan, passed the Senate last
week and was widely expected to
receive quick approval in the
House. The issues raised could
not be boiled down to the easy
open or-shut gates rhetoric. In-
stead, nitty-gritty compromises
about precisely how wide the
gates should be open or shut
and what to do about the
people who slip under or around
the gates, have had to be ham-
mered out, sometimes with signi-
ficant trade-offs-among, oootend-
ing interests.
ON THE surface, Jw*h inter-
ests seemed little threatened by
proposals to cork up U.S. bor-
ders. Few, if any, Jewish illegals
have been coming into the coun-
try. The infamous McCarran-
Walter Act, with its quotas
favoring immigrants from north-
ern Europe, was finally repealed
in 1965. Soviet Jews have been
admitted here with the status of
refugees from oppression; thus
they have been exempt even from
existing quotas. Others have
come in under special provisions
for family reunion.
But public and congressional
reactions to some elements of
Simpson-Mazzoli raised some
warning signals in the situation,
arousing thoughtful observers
from what some have character-
ized as a Jewish complacency
about immigration. Not only the
current debate, but also the
entire matter of Jewish attitudes
towards immigration deserves a
close look.
In the post-Holocaust period, a
widespread conviction developed
among Jews that the Jewish peo-
ple would find it in their long-
Iterm best interests to support the
most generous and liberal immi
cd Igration policy for America. The
i, (concept of an "open door" or
?;J"open gates" policy achieved a
g 'status close to folk wisdom in the
Jewish mind. The popular litany
HAD THE pre-Holocaust
? i American immigration laws been
j more liberal and humane, had
5i FDR been a true friend of the
" Jews, had America lived up to its
claim to be a refuge for the op-
pressed, had the American Jew-
ish leadership in the 1930s and
1940s put the interests of their
European brethren above their
own ambitions for acceptance as
"true" Americans then, per-
haps, the Holocaust might not
have happened as it did, or might
not have claimed all of the many
millions who perished.
Sources of Jewish liberal views
on immigration may be traced
even further back in Jewish lore:
"Remember that thou weast a
bondman in the land of Egypt,"
is the refrain in Deuteronomy
that recurs throughout the Pass-
over seder. "If there be among
you a needy man, one of thy
brethren within thy gates, in thy
land which the Lord thy Goo
giveth thee, nor shut thy hand
from thy needy brethren; but
thou shalt surely open thy hand
unto him, and shaft surely lend
him sufficient for his need in that
which he wanteth."
The humane, poetic appeal of
this concept is being questioned
by some Jews today. Not merely
in cocktail party chatter chal-
lenging the status of black Hai-
tians as brethren, but also among
serious students of American
THIS IS not 1938 but 1982.
America is no longer the expan-
sionist society that it was in the
18208 when a large influx of peo-
ple was welcomed to populate
open spaces. We do not have the
great industrial city and port city
In the post-Holocaust period, a widespread conviction has developed
among Jews that the Jewish people would find it in their longterm best in-
terests to support the most generous and liberal imigration policy for
expansions which developed in
the 1880s and continued to open
up great opportunities even after
World War II.
Can the Jewish conscience
burdened with the memory of the
Holocaust assent to anything
less than the most generous and
liberal immigration policy with-
out becoming, well, un-Jewish?
On the other hand, must our
compassion for the oppressed
peoples of the world require of us
hat we accept the idea of Cuban
jails being emptied out by Fidel
Castro at our expense? In seeking
n just policy for U.S. immigra-
tion, must we agree to the ab-
sorption of Mexican, Haitian and
Asian poverty? At what point
does generosity deteriorate into
national suicide?
THE CLIMATE for a dis-
passionate debate over an opti-
mum immigration policy is far
from ideal right now. But per-
haps there is never an ideal time.
The current furor over Haitian il-
legals was preceded by equally
angry, and lingering, dissension
over Cubans, Mexicans, Domini-
cans and various Asians. And the
inflamed discussions about the
influx of illegals from south of the
U.S. border have not left Ameri-
can Jewish interests totally un-
Unencumbered by a Jewish
conscience, Joseph Nocera (an
editor of the highly regarded
Texas Monthly) published a pro-
vocative, though not unsympa-
thetic article about current Sov-
iet Jewish immigration in the
May edition of Harper's Maga-
zine. He raised a hard question
that some thoughtful American
Jews and the Israeli govern-
ment, for its own reasons have
also been asking.
Why is a Soviet Jew with a
visa for Israel regarded by the
U.S. as a refugee from oppres-
sion. Why is he entitled to enter
this country with virtually no
wait, no anguish and no messy
paperwork, while almost no other
class of people in the world is now
accorded this status?
STATED IN more currently
relevant, and emotionally loaded,
terms, the question might be
posed this way: Why is a Soviet
Jew with a visa to enter Israel,
which very much wants him,
classified as a refugee from op-
pression when a black Haitian
with a visa for nowhere is regard-
ed as an illegal alien?
Nocera does not really be-

bail, because he was afraid to
leave jail. Rauca was arrested
here June 17 for allegedly taking
part in the wartime slaughter of
10,500 Jews in the Kovno ghetto
in Lithuania. He was arrested at
the request of the West German
government, which wants him
extradited to be tried on the mass
murder charge.
ON JUNE 21, he was granted
bail, which his attorney, William
Parker, said he could afford, but
he chose to remain in jail, rather
than leave and stay with friends
until the extradition hearing. He
decided not to leave jail for fear of
endangering both them and him-
self. No information has been
made available as to why Rauca
is so fearful for his safety that he
prefers to remain in jail.
At the hearing sought by rep-
resentatives of the West German
government and the Canadian
Jewish Congress, arguments
were submitted that Rauca posed
a threat to the safety of the com-
munity and that there was a risk
he would jump bail and not ap-
pear at the extradition hearing.
Justices John Uris, Darrel
Heald and G. S. Cowan, in up-
holding Justice Griffiths' deci-
sion to allow Rauca to be free on
bad pending the deportation
hearing, ruled there was "no
evidence" that Rauca "poses a
menace to the public" and that
"sufficient safeguards may be
buUt to ensure his appearance" at
the Sept. 20 hearing.
that the hearing by Griffiths and
the appeal hearing which upheld
freedom on bail for Rauca was
not a pointless set of legal actions
because, under Griffiths' initial
ruling, Rauca could leave the jail
whenever he chose to do so.
The appeals court concurred
with Griffiths' ruling which held
that the Canadian Bill of Rights
recognizes specifically "the right
to reasonable bail and pro-
vides that no one charged with a
criminal offense should be de-
prived of the right to bail or in-
terim release without just cause."
Griffiths ruled that Rauca was
"a good Canadian citizen" and a
hard working citizen since he ar-
rived in Canada in 1960 and had
no criminal record in Canada.
David Mates, a Winnipeg at-
torney active in the Canadian
Jewish Congress, said Rauca s
arrest marked the first time Can-
ada had acted to help extradite
nn alleged war criminal.

Dr. Goldmaitn's Passing
In his last years as an elder statesman of world
Jewry, Dr. Nahum Goldmann made a wide variety of
controversial remarks about Israel that won him the
praise of some Jewsand the animosity of others.
! But Dr. Goldmann, who died on Sunday at age 87,
was no stranger to controversy throughout his life. It
was Dr. Goldmann, who after devoting the lion's
share of his younger years to Jewish survival in the
Hitlerian holocaust, and who played a leading role in
the founding of the State of Israel, later spent his en-
ergies debating with David Ben Gurion over who was
a Zionist.
Ben Gurion believed that no Jew who refused to
make aliyah was a Zionist. Dr. Goldmann, quite
simply, cried "Bunk!"/
In his declining years, even but a few months ago,
Dr. Goldmann expressed his growing concern that
Israel had taken a "wrong turn" away from the loft-
ier principles of its ree merge nee out of the ashes of
the Nazi era.
Whatever position Jews may take about Dr. Gold-
mann now that he is gone, there will be unanimity on
at least one issue. He was as surely an architect of
the modern Jewish State as any other Zionist, a man
who helped Jews, both Israeli and non-Israeli, sur-
vive their holocaustic experience and rise once again
to positions of world prominence and prestige.
Arafat's 'Victory'
Yasir Arafat's departure from Beirut suggests
that his posturing before the world press about bis
"magnificent victory" can not be long sustained as a
series of incidents worth reportingnot even by that
press, whose corrupt reporting of the war in Lebanon
now leaves it in the lurch.
Arafat has been defeated, at least in Lebanon, and
he knows it. If he did not know it when he agreed to
leave, surely he knew it on his way to Tunis via
Greece, when he had time to mull over his last re-
quest, refused by the Israelis, that he be allowed to
leave Beirut with all the diplomatic honors accorded
a statesman.
If nothing else, old Yasir sure tried to pull off yet
another piece of stagecraft, and he failed. Diplomatic
honors? For what? The PLO chief's main claim to
fame these days is that he held out longer against the
Israelis than any other Arab nation, or combination
of nations, or forces in the past.
Of course he did. He was holed up smack in the
middle of civilian centers the Israelis were loathe to
destroy. Such cowardly tactics deserve no diplomatic
honors. Not even the corrupt world media, with their
bastions of fiction-writers and photographers pur-
porting to be reporters, will be able to make much of
this Yasir Arafat "victory."
Not, at least, for the moment.
Tourism Minister Predicts
Post-War Rise in Travel to Israel
NEW YORK- ham Sharir. Israel's Minister of
Tourism, predicted that once the
Lebanese crisis is peacefully re-
solved which, he said, is a "mat-
ter of a few weeks,"' American
tourists will be able to go on
pakcage tours to Egypt, Israel
and Lebanon."
Addressing some 120 travel
agents from the New York area at
a reception at the Regency Hotel
here, the Israeli Minister said
that in fact in recent weeks the
Lebanese-Israeli border has been
.qpen lor. tourists frc.i both eoun-
He said that American tourists
can come now and "visit the
pyramids in Egypt, then come to
visit the Holy Places in Israel,
and from there continue to enjoy
the casinos of Lebanon."
Sharir said, however, that the
war in Lebanon, which started
June 6. has reduced the number
of American tourists to Israel by
about five percent this summer
compared with the same period
last year. He said that many
would-be tourists were scared be-
cause of the war in Lebanon and
wrongly thought that Israel was
an unsafe place to visit
One of the remarkable
things about the Israeli mi-
litary operation in Lebanon
is a story little reported and
commented on. The Israeli
peace with Egypt has held.
This peace treaty is a
cornerstone of American
Middle East policy. It is
the first peace between Is-
rael and a former Arab
enemy. The Israeli entry
into Lebanon subjected it
to the severest of tests.
Would Egypt react to
Lebanon by breaking its
peace with Israel? Cairo
took the position of denun-
ciation without renuncia-
tion. Egypt has denounced
the invasion but did not
renounce the peace treaty.
In Cairo, foreign ministry offi-
cials express anger at Israel.
Egypt has joined France in UN
resolutions critical of Israel. But
Egyptian ministry officials say
that the country will not abandon
the peace process.
IN CAIRO, Western officials
report no apparent erosion yet in
President Hosni Mubarak's sup-
port. But they also comment that
Mubarak must do three things to
He must master Egypt's
economic morass enough to show
improvement in living condi-
tions. Under Sadat, Egyptians
criticized their own economy as
benefiting primarily Egypt's
upper and wealthy class.
He must maintain internal
security enough to control the
country without resorting to
what one official described as the
brutality under both Sadat and
He must preserve the peace
with Israel without eroding
Egypt's sense of dignity. Egypt's
leaders must not see the peace
agreement as making them a
mere tool of Israel, nor must they
seem to be a dinghy bobbing in
Washington's wake.
ONE STRONG inducement for
Egypt to continue the peace pro-
cess is American foreign aid. U.S.
aid to Egypt this year will be
around one billion dollars, and is
divided roughly as follows:
$250,000,000 of it goes for
food. American agricultural sales
help keep starvation from
Egypt's door.
$350,000,000 of it goes to
finance the purchase of American
equipment and technology.
$300,000,000 of it goes into
the construction of seaport facul-
ties, sewers, water supplies, Ude-
phone systems, cement plants.
$100,000,000 of it goes into
health services, agriculture
development, research, family
In the years immediately fol-
lowing Camp David, U.S. foreign
aid to Egypt greatly expanded.
Early foreign aid policy had ob-
vious directions: Do it visibly,
and do it rapidly. The Egyptian
people were to have an immediate
sense of benefit in daily life from
cooperation with Uncle Sam.

Egyptian choice of economic

telephone system is improving.

coast near the Sudanese border.
Egypt will not allow permanent
American forces to be stationed
there, but facilities will be avail-
able to the new American Rapid
Deployment Force for military
response in the Persian Gulf, if
needed -
All of this military and eco-
nomic effort in Egypt has result-
ed in a large expansion of the
American Embassy. Incredibly
enough, the U.S. Embassy in
Cairo is the second largest Amer-
ican diplomatic mission any-
where in the world. Only the em-
bassy in London is larger.
IT RAISED interesting but
disturbing parallels with Iran
and the fall of the Shah. Are we
building a massive American
presence in Cairo just as in the
late 1970s we had similarly built
in Tehran?
Embassy Cairo denies the
parallel. Admittedly, the U.S.
sells a lot of military equipment
to the Egyptians. There is a mili-
tary presence to train Egyptians.
The economic AID program is
large. All of this requires a large
and growing administrative ap-
paratus to run it. But the total
U.S. presence in Cairo is much
smaller than it had been in
Teheran. There is leas constuc '
tion and fewer Americans com-
panies on the ground in Egypt.
There are an estimated 3,000
Americans in Embassy Cairo.
With dependents, military, and
corporate representatives, the
total of Americans in Egypt is an
estimated 10,000. Under the
Shah, Americans in Iran were
some 40,000.
There is evidence in Cairo of
bitterness toward both Israel and
the United States over the inva-
sion of Lebanon.
ONE OF Egypt's foreign
policy goals today is reaccept-
ance by Arab states and readmis-
sion to the Arab League in the
wake of the peace treaty with Is-
rael. But Egyptian officials have
said that they feel ''had" and
"used" by Israel as a result of the
Camp David accords in the wake
of the invasion into Lebanon.
Egypt has "frozen" the normali-
zation process with Israel.
President Hosni Mubarak cri-
ticizes Israel publicly in speeches.
He repeats the critique in meet-
ings with Westerners.
One unexpected result of the
Lebanese fighting has been a
sharp improvement in Egypt's
relations with the PLO.
APART FROM talk about
Lebanon, there appears to be a
wide perception in Egypt that ..
peace with Israel has been good,
even very good for the country. "

saying that five years ago before
the peace there was not as many

Parenthetically, a reporter
cannot help but note that five
years ago the Cairo traffic

impossible as a t present.
The plain facts of Egypt's cir-
cumstances today are staggering.

Repairing War's Ravages
For the 200 members of U J A
prime Minister's Special Mis-
sion, it is a poignant introduction
to the human toll of Operation
peace for Galilee. From the steps
of an El Al jumbo jet, they go di-
rectly to the Chaim Sheba Medi-
cal Center near Tel Aviv, where
the victims of wsr military and
civilian, friend and foe are be-
ing treated and saved.
In a semi-private room in
building 16A, a small Lebanese
child lies in one bed, an Israel De-
fense Forces soldier in the other.
Building 16A is a new opera-
tion for Sheba Medical Center,
housing intensive burn patients.
It was opened during the first
weeks of Operation Peace for
Galilee, when the hospital's plas-
tic surgery department could not
handle the volume of cases.
The Lebanese child is one of 18
children brought to the Israeli fa-
cility 10 days earlier when their
bus, on a fruit-picking expedi-
tion, rolled over a mine planted
by Syrians the night before. Nine
other children on the bus were
The soldier is a newcomer; he
arrived only the night before
from the fighting thst resulted in
the capture of Beirut Airport.
Escorted by Dr. Moshe Modai,
Deputy Director of the medical
center, the American visitors see
other patients with burns over 80
percent of their bodies. "They
will recover," he says, explaining
that Sheba has bum treatment
facilities equal to any in the
world. Unfortunately, Israel has
had too much experience with
this type of injury.
"Five years ago, anyone with
as much as 50 percent burned tis-
sue on their body was doomed,"
he says. "Today, we are saving j
and rehabilitating patients with
80 percent burns and some-1
times even more." The treatment
involves skin grafting and physi-'
cal therapy to work the new tis-
sue into living, pliable skin.
The wards and promenades are
crowded with adult Arabs from
Israeli villages. Some are related
to the Lebanese patients. Others
have "adopted" them espe-
cially the children
And there is a steady stream of
visitors from Lebanon to injured
relatives at Sheba Medical
Center. Usually they stay a few
days, then return to their home
only to come back a short time
later. The hosDital is able to pro-

president in the early 1970's there
were 30 million Egyptians.
When Hosni Mubarak became
president in the early 1960's,
there were 44 million Egyptians.
In 1982 the Egyptians w ill
spend over $5 billion for food -im-
ports. Food subsidies in the cu r-
rent financial year will come to
one fourth of Egypt's GNP: from
22 per cent to 28 per cent. The
cost of Egyptian defense, accord-
ing to the International Institute
of Strategic Studies, will run ap-
proximately 50 per cent of
Egypt's GNP. Therefore, three
quarters of the entire GNP will be
spent on just the twin items of
defense and food.
For Hosni Mubarak and some
Egyptian leaders, an economy in
such straits can only be a recipe
for revolution either Com-
munist or Islamic. More conflict
with Israel by denouncing a
peace treaty over Lebanon is not
the way for Egypt to correct it.
Dani and Roni speak optimistically about the future of Mission
participants. Pictured above: Abner Levine, General Campaign

The Americans visit the or-
thopedic surgical division. There,
they watch Rani and Dani racing
their wheelchairs. The two young
men have become great friends at
Sheba Medical Center and,
although they did not know each
other previously, it becomes ap-
parent they have much more in
common than rhyming names.
Both are 22. Rani was bom in
Ashdod; his father came from
Tunis and his mother from
Egypt. Both of Dani's parents
came from Tunis; he is a Jeru-
salemite. Both are officers in the
IDF, Rani an infantry lieutenant
and Dani a tank corps captain.
Rani was leading a patrol when
one of his men stepped on a land
mine. Dani's tank was struck by
a missile.
Their paths will probably di-
verge when they leave the hos-
pital. Rani tells the Mission
members he wants to go to a.uni-
versity and study agriculture.
Dani says he may study later,
but right now he would like to
"raise a little hell" before he set-
tles down.
The Mission participants are
led to the bedside of Dr. Edo
Katz, a 32-year-old physician who
was on the medical department
staff of Sheba Medical Center un-
til he was called up for reserve
service in Operation Peace for
He was hit with an artillery
shell, losing his right leg close to
the hip and so much blood that,
as Dr. Modai tells the group out
of Dr. Katz' hearing, "he was
given a day to live when he was
brought in. B'jt he made it. He is
looking forward to rejoining the
staff and we're looking forward to
having him."
Dr. Modai brings the Ameri-
cans to the Mass Casualty Cen-
ter, a fortress-like under-ground
bunker, with yard-thick walls re-
inforced with steel. A staff of 50
doctors and 50 nurses most of
whom live on the hospital
grounds can be mustered
within 10 minutes.
The average treatment time in
the center, before patients are
transferred to operating rooms or
other divisions of the hospital, is
20 minutes to half an hour, the
group learns; the center can han-
dle about 1,000 casualties in a
normal 12-hour shift. "But thank
God," they are told, "we've never
had a volume like that."

France, Egypt Have Own Peace Plan Cabinet Votes to Halt m At Flights
effort to launch a joint
Franco-Egyptian Middle
East peace plan got under-
way here at a 90-minute
meeting between Egyptian
Minister of State for For-
eign Affairs Boutros Ghali
and French Foreign Minis-
ter Claude Cheysson.
The essence of the effort, Ghali
told reporters after the meeting
at Quai d'Orsay, is to find "an
overall political solution" to the
Palestinian problem. Ghali said
that the expulsion of the PLO
forces from Lebanon was not a
solution to the Palestinian prob-
lem, which is the right of the
Palestinian people to self-deter-
ACCORDING to both French
and Egyptian sources here, the
Cheysson-Ghali meeting was
characterized by a "remarkable
degree" of understanding by
both sides of the steps required to
achieve a comprehensive settle-
ment of the M ideast crisis.
Although both sides refrained
from detailing the elements of
what was dubbed "a renewed
Franco-Egyptian diplomatic ini-
tiative" on the Mideast in general
and the Palestinian problem in
particular, it is believed that both
countries will soon publish an up-
date version of their joint drati
resolution submitted to the
United Nations Security Council
on July 2.
The draft, which was criticized
by Israel, calls on Israel and the
PLO to mutually recognize each
other, thus providing the founda-
tion for the long-range solution of
the Palestinian problem.
The Unites States rejected the
draft when it was presented to
the Security Council, but sources
in Paris express the hope that the
U.S. will reconsider the draft, at
least in its updated version, in
view of "the new voices coming
these days from Washington."
THIS REFERRED the recent
declarations by Secretary of
State George Shultz and Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger,
both of whom have stated that a
solution of the Palestinian prob-
lem is a priority issue.
Ghali told reporters here that
"certain aspects of the (joint
France-Egyptian) plan must now
be brought up to date" and that
the governments of both coun-
ties "are coordinating their
views. We are quite flexible and
must consult with the United
States and other countries con-
He added he felt Washington
was reassessing its Mideast
policy and that Egypt would seek
to explain aspects of the crisis to
the Reagan Administration.
Egyptian and French diplo-
matic sources say one aim of the
joint draft resolution is to save
face for the PLO after its defeat
in Lebanon. While Egyptian
diplomats emphasize that the ex-
pulsion of the PLO forces from
Lebanon was a "short-sighted"
approach, French diplomats pre-
fer to tread more gingerly in as-
sessing the situation.
THE FRENCH are more sen-
sitive to the evacuation process,
which they consider to be fragile,
because their troops are in Leba-
non as part of the international
force along with American and
Italian troops overseeing the
withdrawal of the terrorists. The
French, therefore, use more
moderate language when dis-
cussing what they call the "post-
Beirut options."
Nevertheless, Cheysson, in an
interview published in the daily,
Sud Ouest, stated: "We believe
that negotiations must be held
with the Palestinians, and for
these negotiations the only
known partner is the PLO. The
Americans do not say that, or are
not in a position to say that, be-
cause of their commitments to
However, Cheysson noted an
important development on the
part of the U.S. with the stance
taken by Shultz. The U.S. Secre-
tary of State said in an interview
on NBC-TV's Meet the Press
program that the Camp David
peace process can be interpreted
in many ways and that the Pales-
tinians should have a role in de-
termining the conditions under
which they live. This was seen as
a reference to some form of Pales-
tinian participation in the peace
negotiations process.

PLO as the "only known part-
ner" for the negotiations with the

of Jewish leaders who met with
Secretary of State George Shultz
and members of his staff for more
than two hours in Washington
last Thursday afternoon urged
the United States to influence
Jordan to join the Middle East
peace process and to help "find
Palestinians who represent their
people" to negotiate with Israel.
Julius Berman, chairman of
the Conference of president of
Major American Jewish Organi-
zations, who headed the 13-mem-
ber delegation, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Shultz
was most interested in hearing
the views of the Jewish leaders.

the statement President Francois
Mitterrand made. In meeting
with Israels Labor Party leader
Shimon Peres, Mitterrand called
for the "participation" of the
PLO in the Mideast peace
process as "one element, among

later, the President said France
would continue to seek a state for
the Palestinians, but refrained
from saying that the PLO is the
"sole representative" of the
Palestinian people.
The updated Franco-Egyptian
draft resolution will probably fo-
cus on an effort to modify
Security Council Resolution 242
by replacing the characterization
of the Palestinians as "refugees"
as is now contained in Resolution
242. The joint draft is also likely
to call for some sort of PLO "par-
ticipation" in the peace process,
although it is not clear what the
dimensions of this "participa-
tion" would be.
Meanwhile, French and Egyp-
tian diplomats are waiting for
further clarifications from the
U.S. on the views expounded by
Shultz and Weinberger before
they make public their updated

The last formal hurdle to
the Cabinet's decision to
ban Sabbath flights by El
Al has been removed with
the Knesset Finance Com-
mittee vote 11-10, to halt
the flights. The ban goes
into effect Sept. 1. El Al
planes will be grounded
from dusk Friday to dusk
Saturday and on other re-
ligious holidays.
Premier Menachem Begin
agreed to the shutdown under in-
tense pressure from Aqudat Is-
rael, a member of his coalition.
Representatives of El Al had
warned that the shutdown would
cause the struggling airline to
lose an estimated $40 million an-
nually, a loss that could mean the
end of El Al.
AS SOON as the Committee's
decision was made public, El Al
workers shouted abuse at Trans-
port Minister Haim Corfu. Hun-
dreds of El Al employes assem-
bled at Ben Gurion Airport, de-
claring they continue to cam-
paign against the ban. Workers
committees from industries
promised solidarity with the El
Al workers.
Corfu said after the Finance
Committee's meeting that the
airline might not suffer severe fi-
nancial loss despite the shutdown
on the Sabbath and religious hol-
idays. He did not specify how
this would be possible. Corfu said
the airline workers are opposed to
the decision because their income
would be reduced since they
would no longer work on Satur-
"If they wish, they can still
operate El Al on a profitable ba-
sis," he said, "and it will be one
of the better work places also in
the future."
But Labor Alignment Knesset
member Gad Yaacobi, chairman
of the Knesset Economic Com-
mittee, said the decision on the
ban was the result of religious
coercion. He added that the move
to halt Sabbath flights was a bad
mistake and that it will be regret-
ted for a long time to come.

Black Basketball Player Williams
Tel Aviv Team Star Says He's Convert
For the second time in three
years, the Maccabi Tel
Aviv basketball team has
experienced the conversion
of an American-born Black
player. Earl Williams,
formerly a member of the
Detroit Pistons, arrived
this week in Israel and told
the press he had become a
member of the Jewish faith
and had taken as his Jewish
name Eliezer Ben Abra-
In 1978, Aulcie Perry, a player
from New York, who had played

cabi team, became a convert after

court) in Brooklyn, headed by a
Rabbi Chaim Rabinowitz. Perry's
conversion became a hot religious

Dries van Agt, the Dutch For-
eign Minister, said in The Hague
that he had asked the Dutch Em-
bassy in Brussels to check re-
ports the Hitler opus had been
reprinted in Belgium and was on
sale in supermarkets in Flam
in Belgium. A reprint was cei
cated in The Netherlands in
on grounds that material advo-
cating racism and xenophobia
were illegal.
Dutch authorities were report-
ed to be afraid that the reprints,
believed to be on sale in Flemish
Belgium, might get into the

but Belgian Justice Ministry

ion on whether to prosecute the

being the reason for the search
for the publisher.

THE DISPUTE led to warn-
ings from the Agudat Israel that
it might leave Premier Mena-
chem Begin's coalition if Perry's
naturalization certification was
not rescinded by the Interior
Ministry, controlled by another
coalition partner, the National
Religious party.
The athletic-related issue arose
from a rule that each team in the
Israeli National Basketball Lea-
gue (NBL) may bring in one non-
Israeli player of Jewish birth and
one of non-Jewish birth.
When a non-Israeli i player of
non-Jewish birth, as in the case of
Perry, became a convert, his ac-
tion made room for acceDtance bv

raeli player, in Perry's case, an

THE TEL AVIV team there-,
upon imported Williams, who has
since been a star player. Israeli
sports experts said they had
assumed that now that Williams
has converted to Judaism, he
leave a spot on the team for a
non-Jewish player. In fact, Wil-
liams conversion left an opening
which was filled by Jack Zimmer-
man, who was graduated from
Dayton (Ohio) University and
played international contests
with the Maccabi Tel Aviv team
last season.
Israeli cage teams also may,
for international competition,
add a player who need not be
Jewish. But he can play only in
international contests, not in
local ones.
Williams has turned out sur-
prisingly to be a highly aggres-
sive player, whose tactics have
offended many Israeli cage fans.
Williams has a tendency to bait
opposition players. Some of the
more mild-mannered Tel Aviv
fans find such tactics contrary to
their ideas of "smart basketball."
. IN AN international game last
year, with a leading team in
Greece, Williams struck an oppo-
sition player, touching off a riot
that involved the whole Maccabi
Williams' aggressive style,
both on and off the court, has
surprised former NBL coaches
who have had the opportunity to
work with the new convert and
who are startled to learn about
his conversion. "This can't be the
Earl Williams I used to know
when I was affiliated with the
Detroit Pistons during Williams'
stay there," said one former as-
sistant coach. "It just doesn't sit
right with me."
Sports observers noted with
interest that the Maccabi five not
only lead the NBL every season,
but also have managed to lead
the League in conversions of non-
Jewish players. There is a fJiird
convert, Jim Boatwright, a form-
er Mormon from Utah.
The Hapoel Tel Aviv team, tfie
Tel Aviv Maccabi team's fierce*''
competitor, which initially ble\
the whistle on the question of
Perry's conversion, also was dis-
closed this week to have a con-
vert as a player. Lavon Mercer,
the star Pivot player of the Ha-
poel team, has undergone conver-
sion and is now a Jew. Mercer has
been an NBL star for the past
three seasons.
Now That His War Is Over^\
Haddad Fears
Israel Cools Off
Maj. Saad Haddad, commander of the Christian militia,
who helped Israel keep its border with southern Lebanon
clear of PLO terrorists for the past seven years, expressed
concern that he will now be abandoned bv both Israel and
Lebanese President-elect Bashir Gemayel.
In an interview with Israel Radio, Haddad said that
since the war began in Lebanon June 6, he had met only
once with Israel Defense Minister Raphael Eitan, and no
Israeli political leader sought to meet or consult with him,
unlike before the fighting started when he was alwaya- ^
called upon by Israeli leaders.
HADDAD SAID he had wanted to assist Israel in its
advance through southern Lebanon, and had even been
allowed to move his tanks and armed soldiers forward
with the Israelis, but his forces were halted at Damour,
south of Beirut, apparently at the request of Phalangist
leader Gemayel.
Haddad seemed to feel that he might now be abandoned
by Israel, which will seek to work only through Gemayel.
who might in turn seek to reduce any apparent depen-
dence on Israel for his own political purposes. "Bashir is
my friend, and we work together," Haddad told Israel
Radio. "But I am a soldier, not a politician. He is a politi-
cian with ambitions."
THE CHRISTIAN MILITIA commander said, "I am
sure I have done my best and done my duty. I did not be-
tray my friends or my country. But I am now somewhat
worried that Israel may take the wrong steps. I care for
israel as well as my own country. You cannot forget the
past seven years."
Haddad added that it appears to be the fate of many
Lebanese leaders to live abroad when their duties to their
own country are ended. "Maybe I should retire and go live
in Israel," he said wistfully. "I have no political ambi-
tions. I don't want to be a president. I know only soldier-

was deposited in front of the'
Vienna apartment of Chief Rabbi
Akiba Eisenberg. He and his wife
were not home when the device
detonated. Only the apartment
door was damaged.
In mid-June, a similar bomb
attack was made on the home of
Simon Wiesenthal, head of the
Nazi Documentation Center in
Vienna. Wiesenthal and his wife
were home at the time but neither
was hurt in the blast.
Two weeks later, a bomb deto-
nated at the apartment of
Alexander Giese, a television
journalist, but no one was hurt.
Two weeks ago, a bomb exploded
in Salzburg in front of a clothing
shop owned by an Austrain Jew.
A few days later, another bomb
went off in front of another shop
in Vienna of the same company.
fin Salzburg, the bombers left
leaflets at the store which said,
, "Do not buy in Jewish stores."
* LAST WEEK, a memorial for
victims of the Holocaust in
Vienna was desecrated with
swastikas. A Jewish-owned bank
in Vienna was hit by a Molotov
cocktail. Last Friday, a bomb
which failed to go off when its
trigger mechanism malfunction-
ed was found in a Vienna park.
An explosives expert in the
Viennese police department said
the failed bomb was by far the
most powerful in the series. He
said all of the bombs were either
pressure devices or iron tubes
filled with gunpowder and alarm
clock triggers. Police suspect all
the bombs were made by the
same individual or group.
What police called a "comedy
of crime" got considerable atten-
tion in Austrian media. Norbert
Burger, leader of the rightwing
National Democratic Party
(NDP), called a press conference
to announce he would make
known the identity of one of the
wanted terrorists. The Police im-
mediately took Burger into
.ustody for interrogation. A few
nours later. Ekkehard Weil, 33,
wanted in West Germany as a
neo-Nazi, was arrested.
INTERIOR Minister Erwin
Lane said he believed Buger had
made his public gesture out of
fear that police would have found
Weil at the home of an NDP
functionary. Lane said Austrian
police had proof that Weil, who is
wanted internationally for terror
acts in West Germany, has been
in Austria for more than a year,
housed and supported by NDP
members. Weil is also suspected
of a bank robbery in Austria two
years ago.
Police said that Weil and
another arrested suspect, Attila
Bajetec, 23, a Hungarian appre-
hended last Sunday, have denied
any connection with the bomb-
ings. But police officials said they
have ample evidence against both
Weil and Bajetic.
The threat against the Satmar
Rebbe, Moshe Teitelbaum, was
made known to Austrian authori-
ties last week. Teitelbaum had
been vacationing in the Austrian
mountain*. Police responded by
tightening security measures at
Semmering, Teitelbaum's vaca-
tion place. Last Sunday, the
Satmar Rebbe left for his home in
WITH ONE exception, which-,

Initially, the police had pur-
sued the theory that the bombing
efforts were the work of Palestin-
ian terrorists. But after the'
arrests of Weil and Bajetec, the
police indicated they were fairly

BEIRUT Pieces of a Syrian
MIG-25 "Foxbat" were seen fall-

Jounieh north of here when
Israeli jets shot down the MIG,
the Israeli military command
said in Tel Aviv Tuesday.
According to Israel, the plane
was on a Syrian photographic
mission in Lebanese airspace.
The Voice of Lebanon Radio
said that the MIG 26, supplied to
the Syrians by the Soviet Union,
crashed into a building in Rabieh,
which is just seven miles north-
east of Beirut. The pilot waa seen
parachuting to safety.
The radio said that Israeli war-

Argov said he is suffering a total

an impairment of one of his

and his powers of concentration
and memory are unpaired.
Argov, Israel's Ambassador to
Britain, was shot in London June
4. The terrorist attempt on his
life precipitated the "Peace for
Galilee" operation.
Doctors Aharon Beler and
Alexander Magore said all the af-
flictions were the result of brain
damage suffered during the at-
tempt on Argov's life. However,
the doctors said the envoy's in-
tellectual capacities have im-
proved remarkably. Argov was
able to hold conversations for
about 15 to 20 minutes at a time,
they said. He is undergoing reha-
bilitation through psysiotherapy
and drug therapy and there is no
longer any danger to his life, the
doctors reported.

the first such group to visit

Mouhanna, dean of the faculty of
philosophy at the University of

President of the Supreme Court.
Some members of the delega-
tion told Shamir that they sup-
ported a peace agreement be-
tween Israel and Lebanon. But
Walid Khazan, one of President-
elect Bashir Gemayel'a advisers,
said it was up to the new govern-
ment to decide this issue.
Gemayel, himself, made a similar
statement last week after he waa

that it is now possible to advance
along the road to peace now that
the PLO has been destroyed mi-

Liberal Era Ending
Will U.S. Stop its Traditional Immigration Policy?
Continued from Page 3
grudge Soviet Jews their entry
into the United States. What he
really wishes to address, from a
basically liberal point of view, is
the generally recognized muddle
in U.S. immigration law and
enforcement. The Simpson-
Mazzoli Bill has been aimed at
controlling illegal immigration, a
generally agreed upon objective
among liberals and conservatives
alike right now. But it is also in-
tended as a reform of existing
regulations for legal immigration.
That's why the recent political
give-and-take among contending
interests has been taking place.
The New York Times, which
. editorialized in favor of the pas
sage of Simpson-Mazzoli without
substantive tampering, says it*
provisions are "adjusted as deli-
cately as a clock." Introduced h>
Sen. Alan Simpson (R., Wyq.)
and Kep. Romano Mazzoli
(D., Ky.|, the bill was voted out
of committee in the Senate witb
only one dissenting voice, that o.
Sen. Edward Kennedy
(D., Mass.). He unsuccessfully
introduced several amendments
further liberalizing amnestypro-
visions and extending due pro-
cess for illegal immigrants such
as the Haitians.
ON THE RIGHT, Sen. Jesse
Helms (R., N.C.) introduced
amendment* intended to sharply
reduce amnesty and legal re-
course provisions for the illegals.
His amendments also failed. The
full Senate eventually voted to
grant somewhat broader amnesty
to millions of illegal aliens, grant-
ing permanent resident status to
those who came before 1977, and
temporary residence for those
who arrived after 1977 and before
1980, with the possibility of up-
grading the latter status to per-
manent residence after three
years. Permanent residents may
apply for citizenship after five
The measure also contains con-
troversial provisions for creation
of a national work eligibility card,
penalties for employers who hire
illegals, and increased enforce-
ment at U.S. borders.
Some Jewish groups, notably
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, are strongly op-
posed to such matters as employ-
er penalties and worker identifi-
cation cards, and they side with
civil rights and Hispanic groups
in opposing them. What concern-
ed a broader coalition of Jewish
groups was Title II of Simpson-
Mazzoli, which received con-
siderably less publicity than the
controversial amnesty and
employment measures. Title II
imposes a ceiling of 425,000 on
legal immigration. It retains spe-
cial provision for family reunions
and for refugees from oppression.
A THREAT TO the status of
Soviet Jews coming here as
well as to others who might be
classified as refugees arose
when Sen. Walter Huddles ton
(D., Ky) introduced an amend-
ment which would have included
all immigrants legal and il-
legal, a? ell as refugees under
that rigid ceiling of 425.000.
There was a certr n glib appeal
to the Huddleston proposal. Un-
employment is running at about
9.8 percent nationally. It would
not be (he first time economic
distress was being blamed on
foreigners. But if people like
Huddleston were sincerely con-
cerned about jobs being lost tc
foreigners, observers thought
that they ought to have focused
their attention on illegal
migrants, rather than lumping
together two different kinds of
people. Refugees are trying to
escape from persecutir- immi-
grants either wis'i to be reunited
with their familu or to seek bet-
ter opportunities in a new land.
The Senate defeated the
Huddleston amendment. Unless
the House unexpectedly turns
ugly, it is generally believed that
Simpson-Mazzoli will pass there
as well, without major changes.
Had the Huddleston amendment
or something like it passed, po-
tential new Soviet Jewish move-
ment might have been caught up
in an American immigration
RIGHT NOW the flow of Jews
outside the USSR has been slow-
ed to a trickle by the Soviet gov-
ernment. Even so, Soviet Jews
have been choosing to come to
the United States in much great-
er proportion than those going to
Israel.-Even an attempt to, in ef-
fect, coerce the Soviet Jews into
using their visas for Israel by
denying them support from
HI AS (the Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society) unless they had
close relatives in the U.S. fail-
ed to deter them from their deter-
mination to come here. They
turned to the anti-Israeli Satmar
Chassidic organization for help.
Since Soviet Jews have been
opting to come to the U.S., an in-
crease, in their numbers would
have undoubtedly complicated
the entire U.S. immigration
equation in the event of the im-
position of a rigid immigration
cap for all classes of people such
as Huddleston proposed. Family
reunion cases might also have
been affected, especially if the in-,
flux of illegals continued un-
checked. One could even conceive
of the Soviet Union manipulating
Jewish emigration in order to sow
dissent here.
Several Jewish organizations,
including the American Jewish
Committee, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, HIAS,
and the Council of Jewish
Federations joined a broadly-
based network called Citizens
Committee for Immigration Re-
form which specifically opposed
the Huddleston Amendment.
That was relatively easy because
its imposition of a single, rigid
numerical ceiling threatened con-
stituents of almost all religious
and national interest groups.
short of endorsing Simpson-
Mazzoli, though, partly because
no one could be sure what the bill
might look like in its final form,
partly because unanimity did not
exist insofar as broad amnesty
provisions, the establishment of
sanctions against employers or
the establishment of worker iden-
tification cards was concerned.
An American Jew, confronted
with today's immigration morals,
may very well find himself
plagued by a special dimension of
conflict, there is, of course, the
tragic Holocaust history. There is
also acute awareness of today's
painful economic realities yet
those who barred the Jews from
entering in the 1930s also cited
economic distress as a reason.
There is, further, a certain
ambivalence developing about
the Soviet Jews who have been
settling here.
A thoughtful Jew may find
himself forced to ask two ques-
tions: "What's a just policy?"
and "What's good for the Jews?"
Then he may find himself con-
fronted by a third: "Are the an-
swers to the first two questions
compatible with one another?"
FOR DR. Irving Greenberg,
director of the National Jewish
Resource Center in New York,
the only supportable policy for
Jews must be the most liberal
policy. He characterizes Jewish
resistance to this as "a conflict
between two psychological
realities: our Jewish memory and
our contemporary complacency."
Anyone possessed of a Jewish
memory, he observes, must re-
cognize in the arguments for
limiting immigration "literally
the same language that was used
in the 1930s." Besides economics,
there are references to the "poor
quality" of the immigration and
an underlying view of the new-
comers as "outsiders."
"Anybody with a Jewish mem-
ory who hears this language has
to shudder," Greenberg says.
HE BELIEVES Jews ought to
be in the forefront of demanding
liberal immigration policies. But
he recognizes that such a position
has its price: "The Jew will have
to trade off a little less social and
economic affluence and a little
less security in the neighborhood
in return for the extra security
that this pluralism is the key to
our permanent acceptance in
America, as opposed to being
scapegoated and turned on."
Greenberg's position is
founded upon a fundamentally
optimistic view of America's ca-
pacity to absorb those who wish
to come here. "Simply flinging
open the doors would obviously
be self-defeating," he observed.
"But we are considerably short of
that. Obviously, given the
chance, all of Haiti and Central
America would like to move here.
Rut I think the fear that they are
about to swamp us in premature.
I think it's an underestimation of
the capacity of the American eco-
nomy and society. When we get
to such a dangerous point, we
need controls: but we're not at
the swamping stage. Our eco-
nomy can still handle lots of
these people."
Leonard Seidenman, executive
director of United HIAS, is re-
ceptive to a generous but limited
immigration policy. "We are con-
cerned with the fact that America
can't absorb all of the oppressed
people of the world. That's
important, because all of them
want to come if they can. We can
work within the concept of some
kind of selectivity, but we need a
structure set up that works
favors a policy in which "a sub-
stantial annual determination" is
set and "the figure won't be
taken from the sky but has to be
Seidenman faults Joseph
Nocera in his Harper's article for
failing to take account of the act-
ual legal status of Soviet Jews.
"Just because you have a coun-
try to go to doesn't render you
not a refugee," he observed.
The situation for Soviet Jews
is that in order to leave on an Is-
raeli invitation, they must re-
nounce Soviet citizenship. They
come out of the Soviet Union on a
travel document which is not a
passport not a document you
can return on. More specifically,
the Jews have had to pay a sub-
stantial fee to renounce Soviet
citizenship. Thus, they are state-
less, and therefore Well within the
internationally accepted defini-
tion of a refugee, and equally well
within the category of persons 1
eligible for special entry into the ""^"
United States as refugees under a
1980 law. They cannot return to
the country of origin."
tion" that Nocera identified n>
garding the country which issues
a visa not being the place that the
refugee is bound for, has plenty
of precedent in history. Raoul
Wallenberg, during World War
II, got people out_of Nazi-con-
trolled countries under the "fir,
tion" that they were going to
Cuba and other Central American
nations which had no intention of
taking them and where they had
no intention of going.
"The important point"
Seidenman says, "ia that the
Soviets are violating the Helsinki
Accords, which they signed, and
which allow for free immigration
and family reunification."
PBOF David Sidorsky of Col-
umbia University in New York, a
specialist in political philosophy
and ethethical theory, as well as
an active leader in Manhattan
West Side community affairs,
approaches the question of immi-
gration from a somewhat dif-
ferent perspective. Some classify
Sidorsky among the "neo-conser-
vatives," although he might
challenge that label.
"AN OPTIMUM policy," he
says, "is one which is concerned
with the dynamics of a culture,
the recognition of resources with-
in that culture, the recognition of
what America wants to stand for
in the world, the recognition of
the political situation, the recog-
nition of what an urban-sub-
urban society can adjust to in
terms of volatility."
Sidorsky is not content with
the liberal position that the
American infrastructure is still
capable of absorbing just about
anyone who can get here. "That's
true," he says, "but at what
price?" While America contin-
ues to be a very dynamic society,
it is no longer dominated by what
he calls an "immigrant ethos."
"John Lindsay (former mayor
of New York City) used to say,
'New York is a great city for wel-
coming people. People come to
the city and the city is an educa-
tor. It educates you to be able to
make it. Then, if you make it, you
move to the suburbs,' Sidorsky
recalls. w
The concept of the city as an
educator in an immigrant ethos,
he continued, means that the
landlord serves as one kind of
educator he educates you to
pay your rent and not drink it up,
or you'll be homeless. The grocer
is another educator: you pay
your bill or you don't eat. The
boss also educates you: you come
on time or you lose your job.
"THESE ARE the urban tdu-
cators in an immigrant ethos.
There is a city. It's tough. Its a
sweat shop. And for a million il-
legal immigrants in New t'ork
City who don't qualify for wel-
fare, it's that way today," Sidor-
sky says.
"But in a welfare ethos," he
continues, "it's different. A per-
son from Alabama, by coming to
New York, can raise his income
40 percent. just by moving.
With low rent, he can double it.
The landlord doesn't educate
him. In a welfare system if hi*
teenage daughter has a child, she
may get her own apartment. The
hard education is no longer in
Can the two cultures welfare
and immigrant coexist?
"They do. A million illegal
aliens are living in New York,
none of them eligible for welfare.
They're working. Some, of
course, are working the drug
trade! But not all. Also. New
York has another million people
on welfare. So this creates an in-
teresting problem. I don't believe
you can have sustained unnuK."

a workfare ethic," he concludes.

(JTA) President Reagan
has sent to Congress the
report required under the
War Powers Act for em-
ploying United States
marines in Beirut in con-
nection with the continuing
evacuation of PLO forces
from that city.
State Department spokesman
John Hughes explained that "the
War Powers Resolution calls for a
report to Congress whenever
United States forces equipped for
combat enter foreign territory. It
also requires a report when
United States troops are intro-
duced into hostilities or into a
situation where imminnent in-
volvement in hostilities is clearly
indicated by the circumstances
... A report is required when
either or both of these situations
HE ADDED: "The War
Powers Resolution does not
require that the report cities a
specific subsection of the resolu-
tion; rather, it requires that the
Congress be provided full infor-
mation concerning the circum-
stances necessitating the intro-
duction of United States forces,
the authority under which such
introductions are placed, the es-
timated scope and duration of the
involvement, and other informa-
tion relevant to Congressional re-
"The report which the Presi-
dent transmitted today fulfills
the requirement of the law by
providing the Congress full infor-
mation concerning the circum-
stances of the deployment in
Hughes stated that "the Presi-
dent's judgment as to the possi-
bility of hostilities was based
upon careful consideration of the
facts and circumstances in-
volved. As indicated in the
report, the arrangements worked
out by (special Presidential
envoy Philip) Habib were design-
ed to insure that the multination-
al force will be able to perform its
functions without interference,
and particularly the agreement
between the United States ana
Lebanon expressly rules out
combat responsibilities for our
HUGHES SAID that there
had been a careful plan of safety
arrangements for the multina-
tional force and with the French
advance contingent in Beirut for
several days, the United States
had had an opportunity to see the
implementation of the safety as-
He stated "the departure plan"
for the PLO forces "so far has
been implemented successfully
without interference, so, baaed on
all these factors, the President
concluded that while isolated acts
of violence cannot be ruled out,
there was no reason to expect
that United States forces would
become involved in hostilities."
Hughes said some 800 United
States marines went into
Lebanon on time and took up
their positions very quickly with-
out incident. A group of 663 PLO
terrorists left Beirut by sea for
Syria. He said the decision to
send the PLO men by sea instead
of land was not naked to reports
of fighting in Lebanon. He said,
"It is simply that the parties
themselves, for a variety of oper-
ational and technical reasons on
the ground, elected to go by sea."
United States had received a re-
quest to assist in the rebuilding
of Lebanon, Hughee stated that
"the thinking here is to consider
such a requeat. I do not think
there has been a formal requeat,
but there have been consulta-
tions. The United States has
been very interested in this hu-
manitarian endeavor. We do not
have a final assessment of the
amount that will need to be chan-
neled into short-term and longer-
term reconstruction in Lebanon"
Hughes said "much of the
technical and financial resources
for reconstruction will come from
the Lebanese private sector but
we do foresee a continued need
for assistance from other coun-
tries, from various private
sources and international agen-
cies, aa well aa the United
Regarding a statement by
former Undersecretary of State
George Ball in the New York
Times, that Israel, "the aggros
aor," should pay the coat of re-
building Lebanon, and the U.S.
"should deduct the cost of that
help from our annual subsidy to
Israel," Hughes said there would
be no official response to that
HUGHES SAID, "It seems to
me that both the President and
the Secretary (of State) have
made clear that Israel is a true
and valued friend and that one
would consider Israel's needs as
Israel's needs and not link them
to whatever else might be done to
other countries in the area."
Hughes added that "in its rela-
tions with each country, the
needs of each country should be
looked at as individual needs."
Hughes was asked whether
United States naval ships were
accompanying PLO evacuation
vessels to "protect them from
attack from Israel. He replied
that the evacuation plan indicat-
ed that U.S. ships would, if re-
quested, escort the commercial
vessels taking the PLO men out
Hughes said, "On the basis of
our extensive discussions with
the Israeli government concern-
ing the evacuation from Beirut,
we have every confidence that
ieverything will go smoothly, as it
has so far, but as a matter of
common prudence, we have been
asked to assure safe passage of
the evacuees while en route to
their destinations and provision
of United States naval escort is
part of that request by the
parties involved." He said there
were no objections from Israel to
this procedure.
