.ECTIONS less than
two months.away, the govern-
ment and opposition each blamed
the other for the alarming rise
last month which was much
higher than Treasury and bank
officials had forecast. Finance
Minister Yigal Cohen-Orgad said
the increase was largely due to
the failure of Histadrut to agree
to an economic package deal.
Histadrut and Labor Party
spokesmen charged that failure
of the government's economic
policy was responsible for the
runaway inflation. Finance
Ministry sources said the
increase was also due in part to
the government's efforts to
balance Israel's foreign trade
deficit and foreign currency
short-fall, efforts which they
claim are showing success.
The record inflation rate for
April apparently forced the
government to reverse its earlier
rejection of Histadrut demands
for payment of a special cost-of-
living allowance with May
salaries, due on June 1. Deputy
Premier David Levy said that
Cohen-Orgad has agreed, at his
urging, to an advance payment.
But by the time the workers
receive the payment, their
salaries will have lost one-fifth of
the original value.

After Long Alliance
Friday, June 1. 1984/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Herat, Liberal Parties At Beginning of End
I Herut and the Liberal
Iparty appear to be on the
[verge of ending their 20
/ear-old alliance over
lerut claims that the
liberals are over-
tepresented on the Likud
Election list.
The Herut Secretariat gave the
Liberal Party until this week to
accept fewer slots among the top
40 candidates Likud will present
to the voters on July 23. Herut
has proposed that the Liberal
representation be reduced from
16 to 12 "safe" seats with
another four candidates between
the 40th and 60th spots where
election to the Knesset is less
likely barring a Likud landslide.
THE HERUT formula would

Va'amat' magazine, recently held in Jerusalem. 'Na'amat' is

reduce liberal representation
from 19 to 16 potential MKs.
According to Herut sctivists,
secret polls have shown that if
the Liberal Party stood for elec-
tion on its own it would win no
more than two Knesset seats.
Neither party has been tested
independently at the polls since
they entered into partnership in
1966, first as Gahal and later
Likud. But each claims it can do
well alone.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
reportedly objected to the Herut
ultimatum. He met with Liberal
ministers Moshe Nissim and
Gideon Patt in an effort to
resolve the crisis. Shamir was
said to have told them he did not
want to see Likud split. The
liberal Party Executive was
expected to convene later to
discuss the issue.
Deputy Premier David Levy
said on a television interview that
there was strong sentiment
within Herut to announce imme-
diately that the party would
stand alone in the upcoming
elections. But the Herut leader-
ship decided to give the Liberals
another chance, he said.
THE LIBERALS for their
part, flatly rejected a Herut offer
of a total merger. Liberal spokes-
men said this was a Herut ploy to
take over Liberal Party assets
and declared there was "no way
that the Liberal Party would
cover the debts of Herut."
The Liberals also let it be
known that they are negotiating
with former Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman for the creation of
a large centrist party with the
potential for at least 10 Knesset
mandates. Such a party could
hold the balance of power in a
future coalition government.
Weizman, who quit Herut
some years ago over policy dif-
ferences with then Premier
Menachem Begin, resumed poli-
tical activity recently when he
announced that he would stand
for election in July at the head of
a new party, Yahad (Together).
HE DECLINED to comment
on the possibility of an alliance
with the Liberal Party. He said
he would welcome in principle a
strong centrist liberal bloc. "This
is what I expected Likud to be
but since it did not fulfill the
expectations, we formed Yahad,"
Weizman said. He said he would
wait until the last minute before
publishing Yahad's election list,
a hint that a deal with the
Liberals may be in the making.
Some Liberals are upset over a
split with Herut. David Admon,
chairman of the party's Tel Aviv
branch, said, "I am not
concerned over the agreement
with herut but I am concerned
that if Likud does not continue,
we shall lose the government."
The Herut Central Committee
has scheduled a meeting to decide
whether or not to go to the polls
in July without the Liberals.
Begin, who has been in virtual
seclusion since his resignation
last August, has taken no posi-
tion on Likud's internal crisis. In
one of his rare interviews, he told
a Voice of Israel Radio reporter
that it was up to the party's
institutions to decide the issue.
split in Likud may well spell
defeat for the government party
in July. But the opposition Labor
Alignment has troubles of its
own, not much different in nature
from those of Likud.
The Labor Party is interested
in making room for newcomers to
the Alignment such as the
Independent Liberal Party, the
Black Panthers and a few MKs
who have defected from the
National Religious Party.
In order to secure safe seats for
them, it is asking its long-time
Alignment partner, Mapam, to
sacrifice some of its own spots.
According to the Laborites, the
burden should not rest solely on
them. But the Mapam Central
Committee decided last week
that it would oppose any changes
in the election line-up.

Sakharov's Birthday
Was Not Happy
The South Florida Conference on Soviet
Jewry reminds us that Monday, May 21,
marked the birthday of Nobel Peace Prize
recipient Andrei Sakharov. It was not a
happy birthday. Sakharov has been on a
hunger strike since May 2. The Soviets,
on his birthday, revealed that the
distinguished scientist was transferred
from Gorky, the site since 1980 of his
perpetual exile, to a "clinic."
Why did Sakharov go on a hunger
strike? For months, he tried to obtain
permission from his Soviet oppressors for
his wife, Elena Bonner, to travel abroad
for medical treatment. She has suffered
three heart attacks in the past year, and
furthermore needs treatment for a serious
eye ailment. As usual, the official answer
has been Nyet.
Andrei Sakharov spoke out on behalf of
human rights when he could, and he
campaigned for the plight of Soviet Jews
as a member of the Helsinki Watch
Committee. It is for this reason for his
faith based on the belief that all mankind
has the right to be free that Sakharov
was silenced and sentenced to his
perpetual exile.
A distinguished American rabbi, active
professionally in human rights at the
American Jewish Committee, Marc H.
Tanenbaum, this week wondered whether
perhaps the furor that the Soviet
authorities have created by their boycott
of the Los Angeles Olympics "was not a
cynical effort to divert world attention
and pressure from the tragic plight of
Sakharov and his wife."
Rabbi Tanenbaum notes that about a
week ago he previewed a full-length TV
film due for premiere on HBO in
September. The film is based on the
heroic lives of Sakharov and his wife. In
it, speaking of Stalin, the renowned
scientist, this man who has been willing
to risk all and speak out for freedom, says
of the Soviets: "They are not different
from Stalin, only smarter."
Sakharov is slowly dying now. So is
Elena. They may well be gone in a matter
of days. The human rights community of
the world, the scientific community, the
community of humanity must never
forget them.
Women in Pulpit
Conservative Rabbis Ordain Sturdy 'No'
N.Y. (JTA) Conser-
vative rabbis voted late
last Wednesday at the
84th annual convention of
the Rabbinical Assembly
to reject for a second year
in a row the application of
Reform-ordained Rabbi
Beverly Magidson to
become America's first
woman Conservative rabbi
by convention vote, but
changed circumstances in
the Conservative move-
ment has made that issue
academic and no future
RA convention is ever
likely to vote on that issue
Despite the backing of the KA
membership committee and that
of many Conservative leaders,
Magidson, of Clifton Park, N.J.,
received 230 votes in favor to 99
votes against her application, 22
votes short of the required 75
percent of the convention
majority needed to affirm her
application. At last year's RA
convention she failed in her bid
by fewer votes.
another Reform-ordained woman
rabbi, Jan Kaufman of Washing-
ton, D.C. has been approved by
the appropriate RA committees
for consideration for convention
action. But her application was
tabled. Both she and Magidson
were ordained in 1979 by the
Hebrew Union College, the
Reform seminary branch in New
York City.
Ordination into the Conser-
vative rabbinate is by two
means: attendance at the move-
ment's Jewish Theological Semi-
nary of America (JTS) rabbinical
school, which leads to ordination
for successful applicants; or
admission by a 75 percent vote of
rabbis present and voting at an
RA convention.
A chronic shortage of rabbis
Yemen-Born Kessar Will
Take Over as Histadrut Chief
TEL AVIV (JTA) Yisrael Kessar, a 53-year-
old Yemen-bom Jew, was appointed by the Histadrut
Executive Committee as the new Secretary General of
the trade union federation. He was also named
chairman of the Hevrat Ha'ovdim, the Histadrut
holding company and will head the Lavon Institute, the
research institute of Histadrut.
KESSAR, who was brought to Palestine from
Yemen by his parents at the age of two, succeeds
Yeroham Meshel who is retiring after nearly 10 years as
the head of Histadrut. Meshel had been grooming
Kessar for some time to take over the office. The
younger man served previously as Deputy Secretary
General and head of Histadrut's trades union
department. He also served for a time as Histadrut
Jewish Floridian
for Conservative pulpits has led
the RA in past years to accept
more than 500 applicants for RA
membership and Conservative
rabbinical status notably from
Reform and Reconstructionist
seminaries. But until Magidson
made her unsuccessful bid for RA
membership at the 1983 RA con-
vention in Dallas, all of the
candidates voted on for RA
membership and status as Con-
servative rabbis had been men.
The vote reflected, in part, the
objections of Conservative rabbis
who believe that the only route to
the Conservative rabbinate
should be via the JTS rabbinical
school. But until last October,
women had been barred from
admission to the school since its
IN OCTOBER, after years of
heated debate, in which three
recent successive RA conven-
tions endorsed admission of
women to the JTS rabbinical
school, the JTS Faculty Senate
yielded and agreed to do so,
starting with the 1984-85 class in
the fall.
Another basic source of op-
position to women rabbis in the
Conservative movement, on
halachic principle, comes from a
strong group of rightwing RA
members and supporters in the
active rabbinate, who came in a
body to the RA convention which
ended last week to oppose the
admission vote on the two women
Reform rabbis. Those conser-
vative rabbis and scholars were a
major force over the years in
keeping the JTS rabbinical
school closed to women but are
now conseered a weakened force
in the movement.
The changed circumstances
which make an RA vote such as
last week's ever unlikely again is
not merely the fact that more
than 20 women have been en-
rolled in the JTS rabbinical
school for the coming fall term,
but, the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency was reliably told, one of
the members of the school's
entering class has earned suf-
ficient JTS credits so that,

ethnic slurs against the Jewish
people, defended the following
remarks made by his right hand
man, Muslim Leader Rev. Louis
Farrakhan: "I say this to the
Jewish people. If you harm Jesse
Jackson, I warn you in the name
of Allah, this will be the last one
you do harm." Rev. Jesse Jack-
son in defense of Rev. Farrakhan
stated that they reflected black
anger at assassinations. That
Jews went to the gas chambers
silently instead of fighting.
Mayor Kenneth Gibson, of
Newark, in a letter to Nathan
Perlmutter, National Director of
the Anti-Defamation League,
stated that he as a Negro was
ashamed of the ethnic slurs made
by Mr. Jackson and at his in-
sensitiveness to the Holocaust.
He deplored the lack of interest
^>n the part of world leaders while
six million Jews were being
slaughtered in a most brutal and
fiendish manner. He called for a
meeting of Jewish and black
leaders to restore the historical
relationship that once existed
between them.
He emphasized that Jesse
Jackson did not speak for the
black people. Neither does Mr.
Farrakhan. He gave Mr. Perl-
mutter permission to publicize
his letter.
Jesse Jackson and his ilk must
^e exposed. The blacks must not
me under the spell of this
abble rouser. He is not a friend
of the Jews as evidenced by his
association with Arafat and the
PLO. His presidential campaign
is financially supported by Arab
petro dollars. Ethnic slurs have
no place in a Democracy.

Senator Chiles Speaks Out Against
Soviet Union's Human Rights Violations
Sen. Lawton Chiles, D-FL.
participated in a press briefing
regarding the preparatory
conference of the International
Parliamentary Group (IPG) for
Human Rights in the Soviet
Union which was held in Paris
May 26-27.
At the briefing Chiles made the
following statement:
"One of the key goals of the
IPG will be to focus on
compliance by the Soviet Union
in permitting the free exercise of
religion. We want to hold the
Soviet Union accountable to the
Helsinki Accords which provide
that each participating nation
will respect the freedom of the
individual to profess and practice
his religion according to his own
"We have long been aware that
the Soviet Union is an anti-
religious state and that religious
persecution takes place. Many of
us. as individual legislators, have
tried to assist with specific cases
of harassment that are brought
to our attention
"By banding together as an
international body of elected
parliamentarians we will be
better able to turn the world
spotlight on the failure of the
Soviet Union to abide by the
Helsinki Accords in terms of reli-
gious tolerance. And we will be in
a position to press our respective
governments to make this a
priority agenda item in our rela-
tions with the Soviet Union.
"Around the world there is a
religious renewal going on. The
response to this in the Kremlin
has been a stepped-up campaign
against religious believers in
patent violation of the rights
assured in the Helsinki Final Act.
We hope that the IPG can serve
as a focal point to counter this
"The Soviet campaign against
religion strikes at all elements of
religious life in that country:
Christianity. Judaism and Islam.
Senator Lawton Chiles
Often the campaign is harsh and
direct, including police raids,
destruction of churches,
imprisonment and even physical
attacks on clergymen. In other
instances it is more subtle,
involving efforts to force church
leaders into subservience to the
goals of the Soviet State. Some
denominations face more extreme
repression than others but all
face a government seeking to
thwart religious practice.
"The Jewish religion in the
Soviet Union faces a very dif-
ficult time. The opportunity for
Jews to practice their religion is
severely curtailed. There are only
about 60 synagogues in a country
which has the third largest
Jewish population in the world.
There is no existing Jewish
Central Body, no Jewish
periodicals or religious literature,
and training of rabbis is
"Efforts to overcome these
prohibitions through religious
study groups have met with
disruption, surveillance and
threats of arrest.
Volunteers For Israel
Day after day most people
spend their time without
changing their routine in any
significant way. They dream of
new and exciting things to do
anything that will refresh their
mind-body-soul. Looking for an
outlet? Volunteer to work in
792-6700 on Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday, and Friday between
the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 pjn.
"The Soviets refuse to allow
Jews to emigrate, refuse to
permit the practice and study of
their religion and have in effect
made anti-Semitism the policy of
the USSR.
Christianity suffers equally in
the Soviet Union. Protestant
groups, especially those that
refuse to register with the State,
are subject to intense persecution
which has continued unabated
since implementation of the
Helsinki Accords. Numerous
unregistered Baptists have been
arrested in the past several years.
Meetings of Pentecostals,
Adventists and Baptists are
raided. Some are placed in
psychiatric hospitals a Soviet
euphemism for imprisonment.
"Adherents to these religious
groups are often denied employ-
ment and access to higher educa-
tion. And in some cases, children
have been removed from their
parents' homes and placed in
State orphanages to be raised as
atheists. Those denominations
experiencing significant growth
in membership have been singled
out for the most severe repres-
"The important role of the
Cat hoik Church in the Polish
Solidarity Movement has meant
a renewed campaign against the
four million Roman Catholics in
the USSR and the Baltic States.
The Soviets have interfered in
operations of a Cat hoik seminary
and have attempted to prevent
religious festivals and proces-
sions of the faithful. Since 1960
five Catholic priests in Lithuania
and Latvia have been victims of
mysterious violent deaths.
"Lidiya Vins, the former
Secretary of the Council of
Churches of Evangelical
Christians-Baptists, has written,
'Counting on the apathy and
indifference of the West,' Soviet
atheists 'are directing an assault
on the Christian faith.'
"It is an assault on all religious
faiths. The purpose of IPG and
the message we hope to deliver is
that we are not apathetic and
indifferent. We shall continue to
sound the alarm and press in
every forum for the Soviets to
meet their clear responsibility
under the Helsinki Accords to
allow religious freedom."
Israel is calling for able bodied
men and women ages 18 to 66
years to volunteer to work as
civilians up to 30 days in the
Israeli Defense Forces
Volunteers take over main-
tenance duties that would have to
be done by "Reservists" whose
early return to civilian status
results in the production of goods
and services that normally would
wait until they complete their
tour of duty. Every day a
volunteer serves helps the Israeli
economy and the morale of the
people who realize that their
brethren in the diaspora have not
forgotten them.
Briefly the program is for
people .who can do physical
manual labor, work five full days
Sunday to Thursday and one half
day on Friday, sleep in army
barracks, eat meals in army mesa
halls, wear army work uniforms
and shoes, have the option to
visit Israeli famflim or
Kibbutzim on Shabbat, be taken
on sightseeing tours and above
all know that your contribution
of physical effort is an experience
not to be forgotten.

times a month the year round.

Israel Creates Sense of Trust
Once in a while a story crosses
one's desk that humbles and
warms a person's heart. Just
such a tale happened in the Boca
Raton Israel Bond office recently.
Leo Brink was standing in line
in a bank in Delray Beach. He
carried under his arm a tome on
Israel. Mr. Brink is an Israel
scholar and has written many
works on education, philosophy,
religion, and other related
subjects. Ahvays willing to share,
and eager to educate, when May
Weiner of Delray Beach asked
about the book. Leo handed it to
Leo and May had never met;
but. Lee. who has just completed
two successful terms as the
Delray Beach Area Israel Bond
Chairman, didn't let this oppor-
tunity go by. He suggested that
Mrs. Weiner purchase an Israel
Bond. Inspired by Leo's
enthusiasm and knowledge, Mrs.
Weiner wrote out a check for the
purchase of an Israel Bond ... a
wonderful ending to a chance
encounter of two strangers who
have a feeling of love and concern
for Israel.

Statewide Conference Receives
Praise From Local Participants
Friday, June 1, 1984/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
Recently, over 300 Florida
Jews gathered in Orlando to
participate in the bi-annual
Conference of the Florida Aaao-
ciation of Jewish Federations.
The conference was sponsored in
cooperation with the Council of
Jewish Federations, United
Jewish Appeal and CJF-UJA
Women's Division.
The stimulating weekend,
chaired by Maxine Schwartz of
Miami, provided a smorgasbord
of workshops dealing with such
topics as: Women's Division,
campaign, missions, Soviet
Jewry, public relations, the
Jewish family, the elderly,
leadership development, Jewish
education, project renewal and
government affairs.
Among the dignitaries that
addressed the plenary were:
Governor Bob Graham; past
president of Israel, Navon; Tom
Dine, Director of AIPAC; Elaine
Bloom, Director' of Govemmnt
Affairs Committee for the Florida
Association of Jewish Federa-
tions, and Irving Kessler, Execu-
tive Director of the United Israel
James B. Baer, Chairman of
the Florida Association of Jewish
Federations and past president of
the South County Jewish
Federation, expressed delight at
the caliber of the conference and,
that South County was so well
represented. "This conference is
on a par with national confer-
ences. Many of those who
attended felt that it far exceeded
similar national conferences
because so many top level people
produced such an exciting, all-
encompassing program," said
Mr. Baer.
Of significant interest to South
County Jewish residents, was an
award given to Jim Baer from the
Council of Jewish Federations at
the conference. Its inscription
stated "deep appreciation for his
distinguished leadership and
community service as Chairman
of the Florida Association of
Jewish Federations." It was
noted that through Mr. Baer's
efforts, a cohesive working rela-
tionship was developed between
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and the United Jewish
Appeal. Consequently, Florida
has become a role model for other
state organizations.
Martin Citrin, President of
CJF, was unabk. to attend the
Orlando weekend, but asked that
the following message to Mr.
Baer be shared at the conference:
It is a privilege to have you
serve in the capacity of Chairman
of the Florida Association of
Jewish Federations. You have
aproached this responsibility

community and a resolve to

people and a reinforcement of our
Jewish awareness. As a repre-
sentative of Young Leadership, it
would be our sincere hope that all
young leaders in our community

experience," commented Dr.

Former Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman spelled out
the positions of his new
Yahad (Together) Party on
key issues, the most
serious of which, he
stressed, is to rescue
Israel from economic
disaster. Addressing the
Foreign Press Association
here, Weizman maintained
that neither Likud nor the
Labor Alignment can win
sufficient votes in the July
23 elections to govern
His party, which he belives can
win up to 20 Knesset mandates,
would provide the crucial extra
weight that would allow either of
the major political parties to form
a strong, stable government. It
would give them the philosophy
and direction to get the country
"back on its tracks again,"
Weizman said.
WEIZMAN, who quit Likud
several years ago over policy dif-
ferences with Premier Menachem
Begin, charged that Likud has
railed in the economic field. Any
future government, he said,
would have to amend the tax
structure and encourage people
to work.
Weizman's political program,
as outlined, is a departure from
the traditional Herut policy.
Israel must learn to live with its
Arab residents and its Arab
neighbors, Weizman said, and
toward that end he said he was
ready to talk to any and all Arab

Israel," Weizman said.
He maintained that Israel
must get out of Lebanon as soon
as possible. He said he had
always opposed the conduct of
the war in Lebanon. While there
might have been justification to
invade south Lebanon up to the
45 kilometer line in June, 1982,
Israel made a grave mistake by
thinking it could impose a regime
to its liking on a neighboring
country, he said.
Israel should recognize that Syria
has legitimate interests in
Lebanon and an Israeli with-
drawal should not be made
contingent on a Syrian
withdrawal. The Syrians
probably will not withdraw, but
they have always in the past
recognized the "red lines"
beyond which they would not
move and it is possible to reach
an unofficial agreement with
Damascus, he said.

T AU Students Recount a Night of Terror
Aboard Hijacked Bus to Ashkelon
April 12, began as an average
dav for Tel Aviv University
students Ze'ev BUtsenshoan and
Judith Schvartz. It ended in lOVi
hours of fear aboard a bus
hijacked by Arab terrorists.
Ze'ev, 26, a third year economics
and accountancy student and a
trained paramedic, was the only
passenger to converse with the
four hijackers, who allowed him
to move freely about the bus and
attend to the wounded.
A modest, soft-spoken indiv-
idual, Ze'ev carefully related the
events of the hijacking, from
which he still experiences
moments of fear and anger.
"Judith, my girlfriend, and I
were going to visit her parents in
Ashkelon, which we do regularly
once a week. We arrived at the
Tel Aviv central bus station
around 5:45 p.m., but missed two
buses because one was full and
the other was taking an indirect
route. We boarded the third bus
- Number 300 and everything
seemed totally normal. We both
fell asleep and I woke up when we
reached the Ashdod junction
around 7 p.m. Then it all
happened so suddenly."
According to Ze'ev, two men
came forward, both holding
knives. One pointed his weapon
at the driver's neck, the other
guarded an armed soldier sitting
near the front of the bus. Two
other men, also carrying knives,
watched the rear of the bus. They
had with them, he said, one hand
grenade, a bottle of acid and two
RPG bombs in a black attache
case which they threatened to
explode in the event of trouble.
Just before the bus reached
Ashkelon, a pregnant woman,
who later alerted the police,
begged to be let off and was
allowed to leave the vehicle. The
driver was then tdrtPtd- drive tt
the direction of Khan Yunia, a
town south of Gaza.
"The hijackers, none of whom
looked older than 25, seemed
under terrible pressure," he
continued. "They were screaming
at one another and were very
nervous. One of them kept
stabbing an empty seat with his
knife, which really frightened us.
When we arrived at the turnoff
for Khan Yunis, they ordered the
driver to ignore the sign and
continue straight on the road
toward the Egyptian border. By
that time, two police cars wee
chasing us. Shots were fired at
the bus and tires and finally we
came to a halt in a ditch. At that
moment, the bus driver opened
the doors and sprang out, but
they were quickly shut before
anyone else could escape."
For almost one hour, Ze'ev
tned to persuade the leader of the
^up to allow him to help three

1 this. His answers
Moat of the passengers were
elderly people, women and new
immigrants, according to Ze'ev.
At one point, two people went
hysterical with fright, he related.
In order to calm them and
prevent mass hysteria, he gave
them tranquilizers he had bought
for his own use. Apart from that
incident, there were no disturb-
ances. "I waa very impressed
with people's behavior," he said.
"I am not sure why everyone was
so quiet it was probably out of
fear. I myself waa unable to sit
still for too long without getting
very nervous. I felt I had to keep

When the final showdown
came and Israeli soldiers stormed
the bus, it all happened too
quickly to remember accurately,
he said. "I was at the back of the
bus at the time; I remember
hearing Hebrew and gun shots. I

pulled out of a back window and
was relieved to find Judith
already safe outside."
Judith, 22, came to Israel nine
years ago from Argentina and is
now finishing a pre-university
program at TAU. She said she
was confused at first, that night
on the bus, until she realized
what was happening.
"It was a terrifying experience,
but towards the end I began to
feel better. For some reason, I
knew we would get out alive.
When we were finally rescued, I
felt as if someone had given me
life back as a present."
Both Judith and Ze'ev say
they are over-cautious on buses
now and pay close attention to
travellers. They are convinced
that extra security is needed on
public transport.
"In some ways, I have had
experiences which compare with
that night, when I was a medic
during the Lebanon war," said
Ze'ev. "But I have never been in
a situation where I have felt as
defenseless and vulnerable as I
did then. I kept wondering if we
would ever get out alive, if they
would blow up the bus. I didn't
feel hatred for the terrorists
themselves, but for their way of
doing things. I kept asking
myself, 'Who gave them the right
to board that bus and disrupt our
journey and our lives?' The fact
that they were good to us during
the crisis didn't make me feel
better about them."
Ze'ev said he believes that
every person experiences one
such crisis during his lifetime.
With this thought in mind, he
and his girlfriend said they feel
calmer now when taking the 300

Warned in the past not to meet
refuseniks in her home, Nudel
asked local authorities to restore
the town's synagogue to its

rently used as a sports center. "If
there were an adequate syna-

said, "they would not have to

Leningrad officials tried to
isolate local refuseniks by
"inviting" some of them to with-
draw their visa applications in
exchange for better jobs and a
return to "normal" Soviet life.
In response to recent searches
of Jewish homes in Odessa, a
delegation of Swiss rabbis lodged
a formal protest with the Soviet

Chief Rabbi of Zurich, Mordechai

acts violate international

The Senate will consider its
own foreign aid bill early next
month and there is already a
move there to increase the aid to
Israel by $100 million, Dine said.
He stressed in his briefing that
relations between Israel and the
U.S. are "very strong" on the
legislative level and that "things
that are taking place in U.S.-
Israel relations now were
unthinkable only a few years
DINE SAID the good-will
toward Israel in the House was
further demonstrated recently
when an amendment to the
foreign aid bill introduced by
Rep. Nick Rahall (D., W.Va.)
which would have cut appro-
priations for development of the

agreed on strategic cooperation
between the U.S. and Israel.
Representatives of both countries
are presently engaged in nego-

governments are "tight lipped,"
the negotiations are progressing,
Dine said.
THE AIPAC official also
spoke of pending legislation to
recognize Jerusalem as Israel's
capital and to transfer the U.S.
Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
This matter enjoys broad bi-
partisan support in both houses
of Congress, he said. But it is a
"controversial" issue and the
Administration is opposed.
Nevertheless, Dine said,
AIPAC will continue to press the
matter and will push for legisla-
tion even "if it takes a couple of
Congresses to pass such a
controversial issue."
Dine predicted that U.S.-Israel
relations will grow even stronger
toward the end of this year "in
kind, not only in rhetoric. We are
going to keep up the
momentum," he said.
