TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Yigael Yadin, a world
famous archaeologist who
also achieved prominence
in Israeli military and
political affairs, died
suddenly last week at
his home in Michmoret,
north of Netanya. He was
67.
Yadin served as Chief of Staff
of the Israel Defense Force from
1949-52 and was a deputy
Premier in the government of
former Premier Menachem Begin
from 1977-81.
The cause of death was not
immediately announced. His
brother, the actor Yossi Yadin,
said Yigael telephoned him to say
he was feeling ill and wanted to
be driven to the Hedera hospital.
"I told him to get dressed while I
went to get the car. But I was
then told he had collapsed on the
lawn. We called a doctor and
rushed him to the hospital where
doctors made every attempt to
save his life, but in vain, his

Farrakhan 's Dilemma
Muslim Attracted, Repelled By His Fears About 'Jewish Power'
By LAWRENCE HARMON
BOSTON (JTA) -
Black Muslim leader Louis
Farrakhan believes that
the 'awesome power" of
the Jewish community
might one day be used
against him and that it
was a similar concern for
the physical safety of
Presidential candidate
Rev. Jesse Jackson which
led him to issue his now
famous threats against the
American Jewish com-
munity.
During a 45-minute interview
here, Farrakhan. 50. described in
careful, measured phrases his
visions of the Black and Jewish
communities.
"I have no misconceptions
about the awesome power of the
Jewish community, of their
willingness to use that power
against any object of their
disapproval." the Nation of
Islam leader stated. "I think I'm
very high on the Jewish list of
ones with whom they have great,
strong disapproval so I imagine
the power that is at their disposal
will be used negatively against
THE MUSLIM leader, who
remained seated calmly through-
oat the interview, I almost
morbid m his assessment of the
tensions which had <*lrrj be-
tween Black and the Jewish
elements throughout the
Democratic presidential
primaries. "I don't know how far
that will go. If that will
ultimatelv mean the loss of my
life." he said.
Farrakhan rejected the charges
of anti-Semitism which have been
leveled against him by newspaper
columnists and leaders of Jewish
organizations.
"I wul never agree that I am
anti-Semitic because I am not."
Farrakhan asserted. He decried
what he perceives as increasing
uiessuie on Blacks to danowe
hiin and his leadership. "I under-
stand now that Louis Farrakhan
is almost the litmus test for any
Black person who wants to have
the support of the Jewish
community. That they must
forthrightly. strongly condemn
Louis Farrakhan."
ALTHOUGH mainstream
Black and Jewish organisations
are now renewing old ties.
Farrakhan has apparently for-
feited the opportunity for
dialogue. Last April. Nathan
Perimutter. Minn*l director of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B rith. rejected a meeting
with Farrakhan on the principle
that the Black Muslim leader's
public statements "have created
an atmosphere far more
conducive to fear and divisive-
ness than to rational discourse."
Farrakhan was propelled into
national prominence foUwoing a
March 11 broadcast in which he
called Hitler a "great man."
although "wickedly great." and
also allegedly threatened the life
of Washington Post reporter
Milton Coleman who disrlosed
that Presidential candidate Rev.
Jesse Jackson had referred to
Jews as "Hymies" and New York
as "Hymietown."
Farrakhan indicated that
following his March 11
statements he became concerned
when he learned that he was
being described on New York talk
shows as the "new Hitler" or
"Black Hitler."
"I WANTED some rabbis.
Jewish leaders, to sit and talk."
he said. Farrakhan also stated
that some progress has been
made between Boston-area Black
Muslim leaders and Jewish
communal leaders, but stressed.
"I'm not begging for a meeting
Israel's Potential Impresses Two
Israel Bond Industry Delegations
Head of Burger King Led
35-Member Restaurant Group
The potential of Israel is
amazing." according to J. Jef-
frey Campbell, the President and
Chief Executive Officer of the
Burger King Corporation, who
led a recent 36-member Israel
Bond Restaurant Delegation
which spent eight days in Israel.
There is a role for America to
play here and as a non-Jewish
American. I fed a tremendous re-
sponsibility to Israel." Mr.
Campbell added
The delegation, one of 10 in-
dustry and labor delegations to
Israel assembled by the Bond
Organization this year, included
executives of ****"g restaurant
chains, independent operators
and restaurant suppliers. Burger
King currently operates some
3,000 units in 26 countries.
"Among the lessons." he said.
"that the United States could
learn from Israel is the of
common purpose which Israelis
have, which is based on service in
the armi
duty. That i

; dared that the delegation was "in
iawe" at what its members saw in
Israel and "were Mltea at
what has been done in 36 yean."
He said that rhfcigataai partic-
ipants saw many products which
_ are suitable for home center re-
T tailers in the United States and
j that Israelis were inadequately
* aware of the tremendous poten-
tiaJ for their products in the
United States.
In the course at their viaJt. par-
ticipants in this delegation placed
a number of orders with Israeli
manufacturers and made many
suggestions on how exports of
Israeli hardware and related pro-
ducts can be increased.

planned through the local bond
office with coordination on the
national and international level.

with Jewish leaders. I don't have
any need, nor do the words that
they speak against me excite me
or frighten me. I'm far above
what they say or their power,
which is waning in the world. I
ask (for dialogue) out of a human
concern, not out of fear."
Farrakhan also criticized Sen.
Edward Kennedy 'D.. Mass.).
who denounced the Black Muslim
during s speech in New York.
Kennedy, who condemned Jewish
Defense League founder Rabbi
Meir Kahane in the same speech,
stated. "We cannot pretend that
we do not see or hear when Louis
Farrakhan predicts a race war by
1966 or implies that Jewish
editors and writers distort the
news, or threatens the life of a
Black reporter for doing his job.
or refers to Hitler as a 'very great
man' or ssaafl the hand of
Colonel Qaddaffi
Farrakhan characterized
Kennedy's criticism as
paternalistic" and responded to
each point of the speech.
RACE WAR Farrakhan said,
is "a scenario that is inevitable if
nothing substantive and
meaningful is done" for the Black
community.
"I did my that race war could
come inside America by 1966
because I do fed that if Mr.
Reagan is reelected and his
policies continue, that Blacks will
continue to suffer, and the youth
will express the anger and
frustration and hopelessness of
our people (and) will lash out." he
said.
Concerning his verbal attacks
on Washington Post reporter
Milton Coleman. Farrakhan
stated. "Milton Coleman was not
doing his job as a reporter by
reporting a remark that was
made off the record, unless Mr.
Coleman s job was to deliver
Jesse l Jackson) up into the hands
that were bent on destroying his
candidacy.'' Farrakhan denies
threatening Coleman s life.
Farrakhan also reiterated his
earlier defense of the "Hitler con-
troversy." "In the 30years of my
preaching. I never mentioned his
name until I was accused of being
a Black Hitler." he stated. "I
said he was great, but I said that
he was a wicked killer, and I did
not want to be compared with the
wicked killer of the Jewish
people."
THE MUSLIM leader still
insists that the controversy is a
question of semantics. "Hitler
was indeed a great man but great
is not synonymous with good,"
he said.

DAY
:
Last month, the Nation of
Islam spokesman again found
himself the center of controversy
following a visit to Libyan
strongman Col- Muammar
Qaddaffi. Farrakhan rejects the
terrorist label for Qaddaffi. and
referred to him in glowing terms
throughout several speaking
engagements in Boston. He
expressed no regrets for his
meeting with the Libyan leader.
"... If I could shake the hand
of Mr. Reagan, who has cut back
school lunches for children, who
has cut back on social programs,
who has cut back on education
. then I don't think anybody's
hand on earth is too unclean for
me to shake." he said. Farrakhan
met briefly with the President
last year following his parti-
cipation in a mission to Syria
with Rev. Jackson, which
culminated in the release of
captured U.S. pilot Robert
Goodman.
THE ENIGMATIC Farrakhan
is a native Bostonian He stated
that he got along "exceedingly
well" with his Jewish neighbors
and was a welcome guest at the
tables of his Jewish friends. He
also had warm words for a Jewish
violin teacher with whom he
studied at the South End School
of Music. "I used to read The
Jewish Advocate," Farrakhan
stated at the outset of the inter-
view.
After converting to Islam in
1955. Farrakhan became a
devoted follower of Nation of
Islam founder Elijah Muham-
mad. He held leadership
positions at mosques in Boston,
New York and Chicago until
1978. when he broke with the
Muhammad dynasty and formed
his own group, also called the
Nation of Islam.
No Muslim in America exceeds
Farrakahn's reputation for
oration, explosive power and
sheer, physical presence.
FARRAKHAN preaches that
"Black people are now the choice
of God" and that modem
Zionism has distorted the
"conditional prophecy" which
promised the land of Israel to the
Jews. The displacement of the
Palestinians, he believes, "is the
beginning of a serious problem in
the Middle East which is now
bringing America, England,
Russia and the world into that
final battle called Armaged-
don."
Farrakhan, on several
occasions, indicated his willing-
ness to speak to Jewish
leadership, but it remains to be
seen which, if any, segment of the
community will find it prudent to
speak with him. "We believe that
those promises that God made to
Abraham are fulfilled today in
the Black people of America,"
stated the man who seems at
once so attracted to and repulsed
by the Jewish experience.
Pin-Ups
To POC's
AMSTERDAM (JTAI -
Mrs. Irma Wolf of Amsterdam
has found a novel way to ease the
hardships of Jewish activists and
other dissidents in Soviet prisons
and labor camps. She mails them
picture postcards of scantily clad
young women.
The pin-ups may raise the
spirits of the prisoners. But their
purpose, according to Wolf is to
barter with guards for urgently
needed extra food and other
items that they cannot purchase
or receive from outside. The cards
also show the prisoners they are
not forgotten, Wolf says.

News in Brief
Soviets Detained President Katzir
1 nday, July 13, 1984 The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
By JTA Services
TEL AVIV Israelis had
anxioua hours after Israel Radio
reported that former President
Ephraim Katzir had been de-
tained by Soviet authorities in
Leningrad Sunday.
Telephone calls to his hotel and
other locations in Leningrad
yielded no information. But
Israeli officials finally tracked
him down at his Moscow hotel at
noon Monday. Katzir declined to
say anything of his experience by
phone, other than that he was
well and leaving the USSR Tues-
day on an Aeroflot flight to Paris.
Katzir, a biochemist who was
President of Israel from 1973-78,
went to the Soviet Union for a
scientific meeting. According to
Israel Radio he was visiting a
family of refuseniks in Leningrad
when he and other visitors were
detained, apparently by the
KGB.
Blum Leaves UN Post;
Will Return to School
NEW YORK Yehuda Blum
ended six years as Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Nations
in June by bidding farewell to his
friends at a series of dinners and
luncheons.
His U.S. colleague, Jeane
Former President Katzir
Kirk pa trick, gave a dinner in his
honor last Wednesday night.
Blum attended a farewell
luncheon the next day given by
the American Jewish Committee
for the American-Jewish press.
That night he held a reception at
his Fifth Avenue official resi-
dence to say "goodbye" to New
York and UN reporters.
Visibly at ease, Blum told re-
porters at the AJCommittee
luncheon that he will return to
teaching at the Hebrew Univer-
Temple Beth El School Children
Donate To Federation
Recently, the South County
[Jewish Federation received a
heartwarming gift of $550 toward
the 1984 UJA-Federation
Campaign. The money was
donated by the children of the
[ religious school of Temple Beth
I El. $425 was slated for South
County'8 sister city in Israel,
Kfar Saba, as part of the Project
Renewal Program. The balance of
the gift was given to the regular
I campaign.
In a letter to the Federation,
iRobin L. Eisenberg, Director of
[Education for Temple Beth El's
[religious School, stated that "an
[integral part of our Religious
School program is teaching the
value of Tzedakah, giving to
others. Our school of 400
(students has collected a signi-
ficant sum of money during the
st school year for this project.
ie Tzedakah Council, repres-
enting each class, has chosen
your organization as one of the
recipients."
Upon hearing the news,
General Campaign Chairman,
Gladys Weinshank, was abso-
lutely delighted. In a return reply
to Eisenberg, Mrs. Weinshank
thanked the students of Temple
Beth El. She indicated in her
letter that "Judaism teaches us
that Tzedakah ranks among the
most important mitzvot that we
can perform." She went on to say
that "you and your staff are
certainly getting that message
across to your young charges.
You are providing the building
blocks necessary for our young
people to become the committed
Jews of tomorrow."
The gift will be added to the
Federation coffers for the 1984
Campaign and will be used to
help Jews in the South County
area, as well as Jews in Israel and
in 34 countries around the world.

Victims of Anti-Semitism
Awarded $500,000
WASHINGTON A New
York Federal Court has awarded
$550,000 in compensation and
punitive damages to the family of
Yaakov Elkon of Long Island,
N.Y. who for two years suffered
"a wave of violence, intimidation
and harassment" motivated by
anti-Semitism.
The judgement was issued
against Brad Barry, also of Long
Island, accused of harassing Mr.
and Mrs. Elkon and their chil-
dren. It was handed down upon
Barry's default after an extensive
inquiry into damages suffered by
the Elkons.
The civil law suit was filed in
May, 1983. The Elkons were
represented by the Jewish Advo-
cacy Center of Washington, D.C.,
a non-profit organization that
offers its counsel free to victims
of anti-Semitism.
The court held Barry respon-
sible for a series of violent and
vulgar anti-Semitic acts against
the Elkon family. According to
the complaint, the Elkon's home
was defaced with swastikas and
anti-Jewish slogans; fires were
set on the Elkons property;
windows were shot out and
broken; firecrackers were thrown
into the house; and obscene and
anti-Semitic statements about
Mrs. Elkon were spray-painted
on a public street.
Experts Find Arab
Boycott Has Failed
BRUSSELS Seventy ex-
perts from 15 countries attending
a two day seminar here on "Free-
dom of Trade with Israel" have
concluded that the Arab boycott
aimed at injuring Israel's
economy has failed to achieve
that goal but that it is essential,
nonetheless, to pursue as vigor-
ously as ever the anti-boycott
measures taken by the United
States and Western European
governments.
The participants in the seminar
included members of parlia-
ments, lawyers, businessmen,
economists, representatives of
chambers of commerce, Jewish
organizations and officials of the
ministries of finance and foreign
ministries of several countries.
At the conclusion of the
seminar, a balance sheet was
drawn up of the actions under-
taken to combat the boycott
since the Arab oil embargo in
1973.
Israel's Income Drops
As Revenues Plummet
JERUSALEM The govern-
ment's income from various taxes
declined by 16 percent in June,
continuing a trend "of several
months, it was reported here. The
country's foreign currency
reserves also dropped by $49
million last month.
Economists hold the dwindling
tax revenues responsible in part
for the large scale printing of
money by the Treasury and
galloping inflation, currently
running at an annual rate of 350-
400 percent. The main decrease in
tax revenue was from income
taxes which were 26 percent
lower last month than in June,
1983.
The foreign currency reserves
stand at a dangerously low $2.9
billion. The decline was slowed
down after the State transferred
some $150 million from abroad.
The diminution of reserves has
been attributed to recent panic
buying of foreign currency by the
public who fear drastic economic
austerity measures after the July
23 Knesset elections. Last month
alone, individuals purchased
about $250 million from the State
which is 3-4 times the amount of
such purchases in June, 1983.

Like Farrakhan,
Jesse's A Black Separatist
Jesse Jackson may have repudiated the
vicious anti-Semitic statements of Louis
Farrakhan, but he is careful to observe
that he has not repudiated the man.
To begin with, we have cause to
wonder how Jackson can be honest about
his repudiation of the statements. After
all, Jackson himself, made sufficient stir
earlier this year with his own anti-Semitic
inuendos about "Hymies" and
"Hymietown."
Is it possible that, for a person of such
mentality, the Farrakhan running com-
mentary about Judaism as a "dirty
religion" and Israel as a "criminal state"
is really so reprehensible?
But more important, Farrakhan
foresees a vast racial war within four
years that will pit blacks against whites
in an Armaggedon of blood. In effect,
Farrakhan is a black separatist. Does this
mean that Jackson, in refusing to remove
himself from this man, is a separatist,
too?
We surmise that he is. Jackson's
apparent decision to make a separate
groups out of blacks and other minorities
whom he will cause to bolt from the
Democratic Party, and from the
traditional political processes of this
nation in general should he fail to achieve
his objectives at the upcoming
Democratic Convention in San Francisco,
puts him in the Farrakhan corner on this
issue, too.
Nor is there any solace in the fact that
Jackson does not foresee such a separatist
bolt until after the Presidential election
itself. In fact, it only seems to make his
own view of the black future in America
more commensurate with Farrakhan*s in
the first place.
Passion Play Poison
1
Why all the talk about the Passion
Play in Oberammergau, Germany? Why
do the American Jewish Committee and
the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith spend so much energy on this
event which occurs on a single summer
every ten years?
The answer is simple. As Dr. Marc
Tanenbaum, an official with the American
Jewish Committee, points out, we can't
take solace in the fact that
Oberammergau is after all an isolated
village in Bavaria. And so why should it
matter that a play featuring the spectacle
of ancient Christian anti-Semitic
sentiments about Jesus is once again
being given its infrequent run?
The fact is that between now and
September, says Tanenbaum, an
estimated 150.000 Americans will see the
play there. They will join a total audience
of some half a million Europeans, mostly
non-Germans.
Furthermore, a recent study of Passion
Plays in the United States underwritten
by George and Arlene Hecht of Sarasota
shows that at least a dozen American-
produced Passion Plays hit the boards
also. Many of these are traveling road
companies.
Finally, the study by a young rabbinic
student, Samuel Weintraub. demonstrates
that most of these American plays are
based entirely on the Oberammergau
fantasy. And they appear in Florida,
Georgia, South Dakota and New Jersey,
among other places.
This means that the poison of
Oberammergau flows through the veins of
mainstream America. It is important that
Christians of good-will should understand
the content of these productions in terms
of their vicious anti-Semitism.
UDOKjMGi FOR.-TCRRpR.ISTS
OTA
Arens Calls for War on Terrorism
Continued from Page 1
against Western society. To force
ourselves into a defensive pos-
ture, to exclude the option of
taking the offensive, is as suicidal
in the case of terrorism, as it
would be in any form of warfare."
THE ISRAELI official seemed
to be agreeing with Secretary of
State George Shultz who told the
conference's opening session that
"it is time to think long, hard and
seriously about more active
means of defense about
defense through appropriate pre-
ventive or preemptive actions
against terrorist groups before
they strike." Shultz did not spell
out what he meant by preventive
or preemptive action.
Arens made several sugges-
tions to the audience of some 500
diplomats, legislators, scholars,
jurists and journalists. He said
that the "cloak of legitimacy"
around Palestine Liberation
Organization offices in many
countries must be removed and
their status as diplomatic
missions removed.
He accused the governments of
Libya, Syria, Iraq, South Yemen,
and Iran of using their foreign
legations to support terrorism
while enjoying diplomatic immu-
nity. "The nations of the free
world should jointly warn these
governments that shielding ter-
rorism behind the facade of
legitimate diplomatic activities
will no longer be tolerated,"
Arens declared.
He recommended that "... a
multi-lateral agreement to estab-
lish a collaboration between the
military forces of the free world
should be established, in order to
launch operations against terror-
ists in cases of emergencies
arising from terrorist action."
ARENS PRAISED the state-
ments by Shultz to the confer-
ence is which Shultz said the first
thing to understand is that
"terrorism is a form of political
violence directed against the
democracies against our most
bask values and often our funda-
mental strategic interests."
The lessons for civilized na-
tions, Shultz stated, is that "we
must respond to the terrorist
threat within the rule of law, lest
we become unwitting accomplices
in the terrorist's scheme to
undermine civilized society."
States that sponsor terrorism
use it as a weapon of warfare, to
gain strategic advantage where
they cannot use conventional
means, Shultz observed. He cited
Libva. Iran, North Korea, and
the support given the PLO and
other terrorist gangs by the
Soviet Union as examples of
state-supported terrorism.
Noting the Soviet link among
international terrorist groups,
Shultz charged, "The Soviets use
terrorist groups for their own
purposes, and their goal is always
the same: to weaken liberal
democracy and undermine world
stability."
DIFFERING opinions were
voiced at the conference on how
to form an organizational um-
brella to strike against terrorism.
Yitzhak Rabin, former Israeli
Premier whose Cabinet author-
ized the mission to Entebbe in
1976, stated there is "an urgent
need" for a new voluntary inter-
national organization of govern-
ments "that accept the principle
of fighting terrorism."
Such an organization would be
headed by a high U.S. official and
have headquarters in Washing-
ton, Rabin suggested, and this
organization would not exclude
"a combined operation by the
member states" in combatting
terrorism. He added that such a
body would conduct intelligence
and counter-intelligence activity;
create effective defenses and pre-
ventive measures against
terrorism; provide aid and "coor-
dinated political activity against
countries that initiate or assist"
terrorist acts.
On the other hand, Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger
suggested in his speech that the
United Nations "might well be
called upon" as the body to deal
with terrorism, rather than
creating a new international
organization for this purpose.
U.S. AMBASSADOR Jeane
Kirkpatrick took exception to
Weinberger's view and said she
did not view the UN General,
Assembly as the organization to
deal with terrorist matters
because a great many UN
members support groups such m
the PLO and the Southwest
Africa peoples' organization
which she called '* terrorist |
groups."
Sen. Daniel Moynihan, (D.,|
N.Y.). urged the Reagan Ad-
ministration to join other I
countries in forming a "special!
agency devoted to stopping the I
spread of international!
terrorism." He added that h|
doubted the U.S. would support]
such a proposal, and sug
the U.S. and other members getl
together voluntarily "to help]
defend one another."

000 Jam Meeting To Hear Jerry
Friday, July 13, 1984 The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 5
By ARTHUR J. MAGIDA
Copyright Baltimore Jewish Tim**
The three pickets out-
side the Convention Center
were about as young as
many of the diners who
trooped into a third-floor
meeting room of the glass-
and-steel building for
b rea kf ast- cum exhortation
by one of America's better
known fundamentalist
preachers, Jerry Falwell.
The groups differed, at least
externally, in two different ways.
With their bouffant hair-dos,
summertime three-piece suits and
"glory hallelujah" enthusiasm,
those inside were about as neat a
bunch of kids as you're likely to
find these days. They also carried
dog-eared copies of the Bible
the New Testament, that is.
THE THREE kids outside
were dressed a bit more casually,
and not every hair was in place.
They were carrying something,
too: a hand-painted placard that
read, "Preach Love, Not Hate."
If Jerry Falwell had been an
ordinary clergyman, the pickets
would probably have been back
in bed: 7:30 in the morning is not
time for any reasonable person to
be marching about on the streets
for any cause. But if Falwell were
an ordinary man of the cloth,
more than 900 people would not
have jammed into Rooms 307,
308, 309 and 310 of the Conven-
tion Center for more than two
hours of orange juice, ham and
eggs, coffee and uplifting
spirituals about the Kingdom to
come, admonitions about the
ways of the world, and cheerful
news about the spiritual resur-
gence of America.
This was no ordinary early
morning revival meeting and it
was no ordinary breakfast. This
was the Fourteenth Annual
Mayor's Breakfast.
SPONSORED BY a local af-
filiate of the Fellowship Foun-
dation which sponsors the Presi-
dential Prayer Breakfast in
Washington each year, the
invitation to the breakfast bore
Itne official imprimatur of the
Office of Mayor of the City of
Baltimore, a graphic device that
cheated to at least one local
tWi8h official that the brkfa8t
had the formal support of the
lty.
"We were more upset about
e apparent mixing of church
d state than about Falwell's
olitics. Many Christians were
re. uPet about Falwell's
"ties than about the church-
te question."
The previous 13 Mayor's
yer Breakfasts were fairly ho-
affairs. All had just about
" ignored by local news
pie. But Jerry Falwell was not
ordinary man and just about
eryone in Baltimore media was

He's no ordinary clergymanas pickets outside

on hand. So was the Mayor, who
seemed to be having a good time.
He had the crowd with him, all
900 of them, especially when he
said he was glad he hadn't
listened to his closest advisors
and left town at the last minute,
ostensibly to do something about
the Colts.
"BUT I thought," said the
Mayor, "there's religious
freedom in this country. I just am
glad I didn't make a wrong deci-
sion. I'm glad I decided to stand
behind something I believe in."
Two people got standing
ovations that morning before
they said a word: the Mayor and
Jerry Falwell. "It's not necessary
for all of us to agree with each
other," said Falwell, "but it is
necessary for all of us to tolerate
each other."
Interesting words from a man
who has said that Jews "are
spiritually blind" and that "God
answers the prayer of any
redeemed Jew (meaning one who
believes in Jesus) or Gentile and I
do not believe that God answers
the prayer of any unredeemed
Gentile or Jew.
"Every day," said Falwell,
"America is a better place to live.

magazines. 'I hate to admit it,' he
said, 'but your side is winning.

finished Falwell.

popular during the Second World
War.

reports, the ferry was intercepted
on the basis of information that
one or more terrorists were
aboard bound for Beirut.
A REPORT in Jerusalem by
the Miami Herald Wire Services
said Tuesday that among the
four passengers detained was
Carlos Ilich Ramirez, alias Carlos
the Jackal, the notorious interna-
tional terrorist.
According to the report, Israel
has persistently refused to give
the International Red Cross
permission to see the four
detainees.
In London, The Standard
newspaper is said to have been
among those sources claiming the
capture of Carlos by the Israelis.
At the same time that Israel
refuses to identify the detainees,
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
is reported to have declared that
he does not believe the report. "I
think if such a thing were true, I
would have known about it," he
told inquiring reporters.
But London Standard said:
"The man thought to be Carlos

Among other things, Carlos is
notorious for having master-
minded the kidnapping of 11
OPEC oil ministers in Vienna in
1975. He is also believed to have
been behind the 1972 massacre of
11 Israeli athletes at the Olympic
Games in Munich.

Hawkins has been a strong and
consistent friend of the State of
Israel and a vocal advocate on
behalf of children and families in
this country.

Israel includes her early endorse-
ment of the resolution to
disapprove the sale of AWACS
aircraft to Saudi Arabia. She is
already on record in opposition to
the sale of Stingers and other
sophisticated armaments to
Jordan. Mrs. Hawkins voted for
increased foreign aid and is co-
sponsor of S.2031. the bill that
would require the United States
Embassy in Israel to be located
in Jerusalem.

Senate's Children's Caucus which
has held hearings on a variety of
issues including Latchkey
children, gifted M talented
children and accident prevention.

the missing children act, a bill
that would establish a national
hotline and provide federal
assistance to parents trying to
locate their missing children. In
addition, she is working towards
improving and expanding the
system of shelters and service for
victims of domestic violence.
Senator Hawkins was also a
featured speaker at the plenary,
addressing the assembly on "The
Congressional Agenda and the
Jewish Agenda."

cannot be altered.
In the long run quotas will
work to the detriment of the
black community also. Many
blacks understand this, and some
have openly opposed the use of
quotas. Quotas denigrate the
ability of the individual black to
make it on his or her own merit.
When I was in Yale Law School
back in the 1950's, the blacks in
my class were there because they
qualified by the same academic
standards applied to the rest of
the class. They were held in high
esteem because they were not the
recipients of society's largess.
Today the very competency of
the black graduate of Harvard
Medical School or Yale Law
School is put in doubt by those
who would want to help the Black
community. There is the ever
present niggling feeling that one
cannot respect the individual
attainment if that individual
were judged by a different
standard.
These are painful reflections
for me. My wife and I have been
involved in civil rights since the
late 50's. We participated in the
original sit-in led by Jim Farmer
of CORE in the early 60's.
(Actually the sit-in was devised
in the early 40's by Bayard
Rustin, but that is "ancient"
history to the modern civil rights
movement). Together Lynne and
I have physically put our lives on
the line for equality in the United
States. At a later date in
Cleveland I was vice president of
the Congress of Racial Equality
Chapter there and I was an active
civil rights lawyer. I write not
from the vantage point of a
conservative, but from a life long
history of reaching toward
equality for all people.
I worked many years so that
the question of religion or race
would not appear on an applica-
tion to a university. Now the new
social wisdom is to clearly
indicate what race or minority
you belong to so that you need
not be judged by your individual
worth but can fit comfortably
into a group consideration.
The reaction to the Supreme
Court decision is most curious.
Writing in the Miami Herald,
Arthur S. Miller, Professor
emeritus of law from George
Washington University wrote
that the decision widdled away at
civil rights. Ignoring the fact
that Justice Byron White, who
wrote the opinion for the court,
was a John F. Kennedy
appointee, Miller wrote that the
"appointees of the disgraced
Richard Nixon" perpetrated this
decision. Miller is rankled by the
fact that the Supreme Court does
not legislate his ideas of social
justice.
I can remember that as a law
student during the 50's I was
often disturbed that the Supreme
Court at that time did not move
faster on civil rights issues. The
decisions of the great Justice
Felix Frankfurter were at that
time a constant reminder to me
that beyond a certain point we
cannot rely upon the courts to
legislate social progress. The
justices of the Supreme Court are
not elected. The true repres-
entative of the will of the
majority should be the legisla-
ture. If the citizenry is unhappy
with the social wisdom as
perpetrated by the legislature it
has the ability to change those
who are legislating. The electoral
process is a check upon our
politicians that we do not have
upon the Federal courts.
In the Memphis case involved
in this quota decision the facts
involved only statutory
construction, rather than consti-
tutional construction. This
means that the only relevant
information was the legislative
tive history, including explicit
statements made by Hubert
Humphrey, is very clear in not
mandating quotas. If the Court
were to have upheld the quota
system in the present case, it
would have been a blatant
example of legislation by the
judiciary rather than by the
legislative branch of our govern-
ment. This may sound like an
academic argument, but it may
be the most important issue
arising from this case. Our checks
and balance system in our
government, although rarely
thought about, is the major
foundation of our liberties.
George Will put this issue in
vivid relief when he challenged
the legislature to do what people
have asked of the judiciary:
"Many members of Congress and
civil rights organizations are

What A Splash!
Anyone passing by the Hawaiian Inn on a weekday morning of late is bound to
hear the sounds of happy children, many more children, in fact, than one would
expect to f.nd at any South Florida hotel in the month of June A^d for ^od
reason ... e
When the Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish Community Center moved to its new
six and a half acre homesite on Spanish River Boulevard, construction began on a
number of recreational facilities. However, just a few weeks prior to the start of the
summer camp season, it was learned that the Olympic size pool would not be readv
for quite some tune, leaving 120 children without a swimming facility in the heat of
the summer. That s when Florida East Coast came to the rescue.
A Boca based commercial properties and management company, Florida East
Coast Associates owns and operates The Hawaiian Inn, located on Federal Highway
in Boca Raton. And thanks to their overwhelming generosity, the children enrolled
in the Adolph and Rose Levis JCC s Camp Maccabee have use of The Hawaiian Inn
pool for two hours each morning, free of charge.
Camp Maccabee transports their little ones each day from the Baer Jewish
campus, less than a mile from the charming, thatched roof hotel, to receive swim
instruction and take a cool, refreshing dip.
Children arrive in successive groups, sit quietly until the group in the pool has
finished ila session, then proceed to sit side by side on the shallow ledge until they
receive further instruction. Children are supervised at all times by individual group
counsellors and certified swim instructors.
The children and staff of Camp Maccabee and the Adolph and Rose Levis
Jewish Community Center have expressed their deep appreciation to FEC for
granting them use of The Hawaiian Inn pool for as long as it's needed. And a
spokesman from Florida East Coast recently commended Camp Maccabee Director
Sarah Landa and her staff on their excellent organization and the admirable decorum
of the campers, sending along a message to children and counsellors alike: "It's a
real pleasure to have you as our guests!
The Hawaiian Inn pool area is made available without charge to clubs and
organizations for pool parties, picnics or meetings. Call for further information-The
Hawaiian Inn, 2899 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, 395-7172 or Florida East
Coast Associates, 301 Crawford Blvd., Boca Raton, 368-6600.
Camp Maccabee counsellors and campers enjoy a

cool, refreshing dip at The
Florida East Coast Associates.. .A Matter of Interest
Ihe Hawaiian Inn, a property purchased for
syndication by Florida East Coast Associates just a
little over a year ago, has already brought more than
* fo percent return after tax to its investors. The
substantial tax write offs enjoyed by Hawaiian Inn
investors, a primarily Jewish interest, result from the
expert structure of the purchase and sale contract
ueveioped by Florida East Coast as well as first year
improvements to property under FEC management.
The Hawaiian Inn is just one of many high return
"ivestrnent properties in the Florida East Coast
porttouo. Such properties have become increasingly
popular among investors, regardless of financial
pro tue, because they afford fully sheltered cash flows
e. tax free distribution and cash on cash return on
investments).
According to John Eric Mitchell, President of
norida East Coast Equities. Inc., benefits of
^vestments in a syndication can be enjoyed by
ndividuals with a variety of investment goals
ZTmK tho who desire the benefits of a real
esute holding but might be unable to afford whole
*ne?p' tho8e w wish to reduce risk by
tw I their funds over evel properties and
"3e who might wish to avoid responsibility for
management of their investment property.
inFI-Mlda Ea8t Coa8t Asociates, a unique company
svnH ^Pects, differs remarkably from public
syndicators as well as other local brokerages by the
ery natufe of its corporate structure.
Here's how:
few~ E.C was ^e first and remains one of the very
rmric _.e8tate comPanies in the area to become
l.!*red. Wlth the NASD-SEC. As a DPP Broker-
upon 7 i< rei8tered representatives. FEC imposes
mor.it ",. stringent requirements and constant
not l,?n h inluding month*y reporting of activity)
of registr "t" f th8e 8vndicator9 operating outside
Benefit to investors: FEC's accounts must be
expertly managed and constantly up to date. By
subjecting itself to such stringent controls, FEC
must conduct its business in a highly professional
manner ensuring the investors' security.
FEC is not solely dependent upon the
syndication of properties. Property management and
development are the firm's primary functions,
providing stable cash flow regardless of the inevitable
highs and lows in the real estate market.
Benefit to investors: Florida East Coast will offer a
property for syndication only when the ideal
investment is found, never because of internal cash
flow requirements; therefore, their properties pose far
less risk and tend to generate far greater return on
the dollar. Furthermore, by personally managing its
investments, FEC is able to maximize the potential
of its properties, and in fact seek management
intensive investments, thereby providing the highest
possible cash flow to investors.
The principals of Florida East Coast bring a
wealth of knowledge and an outstanding track record
to their clients. John Mitchell, President of FEC,
recognized the need for syndication in commercial
realty when traditional financing could no longer be
found and market fluctuations caused marked
insecurity in the investment community. Mitchell saw
a logical solution in bringing together groups of
investors to share the returns and diminish the risks.
His success was overwhelming. The Boca based firm
became the fastest growing realty-investment
company in Palm Beach County and the pioneer of a
new era in the Florida real estate market.
Benefit to investorsBecause FEC is locally
based and personally responsible for the management
and operation of over 35 local properties, the
principals are constantly aware of what's happening
in the local market, unlike public syndicators who are
not exposed to uncommon properties and who are not
knowledgeable about their day to day activities.
Acutely aware of local market conditions, FEC can
accurately determine the best time for purchase or
sale, enabling them to capitalize to the fullest extent
on market conditions. FEC's active involvement in
realty and property management assures investors of
attention to detail and quality as well as complete
and thorough analysis of critical factors prior to each
purchase.
Because of the company's involvement in a variety
of commercial properties, as both a brokerage and
management corporation, FEC is able to increase the
profit potential of their properties by increasing the
visibility of those properties in the consumer market.
For example
As owner-manager of The Hawaiian Inn, FEC
hosts fantastic promotional events on the hotel
grounds which perpetuate press coverage and
consumer traffic. An Egg Hunt for the benefit of The
Child Protection Team brought 500 people to the
hotel grounds and received nine articles in the local
press; an ON TV Championship Fight Party brought
an additional 300, and FEC's granting of pool usage
to 120 grateful summer campers brought even more
attention to the hotel.
As a realty brokerage firm and managers of
hotels, mini storage complexes, rental apartments
and condos, FEC is able to offer relocation services to
the many Boca based corporations, further increasing
the income generated by their properties.
Florida East Coast Associates is a company in a
class by itself, functioning far beyond the
expectations of its investors. We must respect
individuals whose success in business is derived from
working to benefit their clients as well as their
community.
Florida East Coast Associates is located at 301
Crawford Boulevard, Boca Raton: Phone-368-6600.

Friday Evenings 8:15 P.M. at Cason Methodist Church
corner of Swinton Ave. and N.E. 4 Street
While most Israelis living in
the U.S. tend to remain unin-
volved in Jewish community life,
in Boca Raton there are two
notable exceptions Dr. Ury
Kalai and his wife Dr. Delia
Kalai.
Both Kalais are very much in-
volved, as a matter of philo-
sophical and moral commitment.
Ury is among the founders of the
new Jewish Community Center
and serves on its Board of
Trustees, and is an active sup-
porter ot the South County
Community Day School. Dalia
is a Boa d member of the South
County Jewish Federation.
Before coming to the U.S.
some 12 years ago, Ury Kalai, a
fifth-generation 'Sabra,' had little
concern with being Jewish. This
is true of many Israelis, for whom
being Israeli, perhaps, is more
than enough to contend with .
Here, however, he has come to
feel that "involvement is a
matter of Jewish survival." In
Israel, Ury was totally secular
"I never worshipped at all"
while now the Kalais are
members of Congregation B'nai
Torah, and their children attend
the Jewish Community Day
School.
Dr. Ury Kalai, an otolaryn-
gologist (head and neck surgeon),
witnessed Israel's War of Indep-
endence in 1948 as a teenager in
besieged Jerusalem, where he
was bom. In the next 25 years he
took part in the three major wars
the country fought for its
survival. During the last the
Yom Kippur War in 1973 he
jeopardized his residency at
Tufts University in Boston to go
back to serve. He served as a
doctor in Safad, where most of
the casualties were brought from
the Golan Heights; but as a
former tank commander, he also
filled in during armored-combat.
When he returned to the U.S.
after the war, Ury Kalai special-
ized at Johns Hopkins, and went
into private practice in
Baltimore. (The residency chief in
Tufts, himself a Jew whose
children attended a yeshiva
school, had told Ury: "I can't
afford to have someone jump up
and leave every time there is a
war in the Middle East.") The
Kalais moved to South Florida
three years ago because of their
preference for a climate closer to
that of Israel's.
The commitment to
community involvement, in
Ury's case, is a family tradition
and inherited value. His great-
grandfather was one of the
founders of Petah Tikva the
first village in Palestine. His
father was a noted scholar and
educator in Jerusalem, who
wrote, edited or translated 40
books, and who served as a
supervisor of secondary educa-
tion. The Kalai family was one of
the first to "break out" of the Old
City to live in what later was to
become "West Jerusalem."
However Ury found that he could
not practice community involve-
ment in Israel. Without
permitting criticism of Israeli
party politics to turn into a
denunciation of the country, he
points out that a major fault of
Israelis is a fanatic allegiance to a
party, which often blinds them to
national priorities. Numerous
encounters over the years with
partisan bureaucrats had left
many scars, and culminated in
his decision to settle in the
U.S.A. He became an American
citizen in 1977.
In an environment where his
commitment was not under
repeated assault, Ury Kalai was
able and ready to express it. In
Baltimore he not only took part
in community life, but received
an award for achievement on
behalf of Israel Bonds. And as he
and his wife were raising a
family, their identity began to be
characterized as "Jewish" rather
than "Israeli," and by an
increasing concern with Jewish
values and the prospects of their
survival.
Dr. Ury Kalai
"Jewish survival," says Ury
Kalai, "can be accomplished only
by developing positive avenues
for Jewish consciousness. To
preserve our heritage, it is neces-
sary to feel that being Jewish is
the best thing for us to be, not
something we just happened to
be born into."
The immediate challenge to the
growing community in this area
is to get all its members involved,
in activities about which they will
feel good, and not ones based on
financial ability to take part in.
"Give people the feeling that you
want to do for them, not merely
come to them and ask them to
give," Dr. Kalai suggests. With a
glad note he adds: "Divisiveness
has always been our People's
worst enemy both Temples in
Jerusalem were destroyed
because of this, and we haven't
really learned but fortunately
this threat has not appeared in
this community, and let us hor*
it stays this way *
In his spare time though one
wonders if he has any Ury
Kalai likes to scuba-dive. He
chalks up some achievements in
this area too: during the 60's he
discovered an old ship which
sank off the coast of Israel south
of Haifa. Some of the artifacts

Chiles Condemns Mail Interception
By Soviet Union
ALEKSANDR YAKIR, son of
long-term refuseniks EVGENY
and RIMMA YAKIR, was
arrested in Moscow on June 18,
and faces charges of "draft
evasion." If tried and convicted,
he could receive up to three years
in prison. Now in his late
twenties, Aleksandr has been a
refusenik for almost half his life.
His family applied to leave for
Israel in 1973.
Moscow's NATALIA
VOLSHONOK was detained near
the French Embassy when she
tried to present an appeal to the
French Government to help her
family leave the Soviet Union.
The French protested to the
Soviet Ambassador in Paris.
Having sought permission to
emigrate to Israel almost eight
years ago, the Volshonoks were
rebuffed by authorities who
claimed that Natalia's husband,
MARK, had not returned his
Communist Party card. Prior to
the family's application for an
exit visa, Mark, who had worked
as a translator of Italian, had
resigned from the Party and
turned in his card.
By a vote of 403 to nothing, the
House of Representatives passed
a measure instructing
Postmaster General William
Bolger to raise the issue of Soviet
interference with mail before the
1167 nation Universal Postal
Union Convention currently
meeting in Hamburg, Germany.

Gilman (R-NY), House

journey to Perm, INNA BEGUN
Lwas refused permission to see
1I0SIF because "he did not
complete his work quota." She
was told no visit would be
allowed until "October 14."
Begun was denied his right to
buy food at a camp store and
transferred to solitary confine-
ment.
n'??spite his Protestations,
LEKSANDR PANAREV was
Irafted on June 9 and sent to a
Iransit camp in Murmansk.

Soviet authorities placed new
restrictions on contact with
foreigners by making citizens
hosting overnight visitors liable
to fanes of up to $60 if they fail to
register the guests with police.
Effective July 1, the new law
appears to be a continuation of
Yun Andropov's attempts to
streamline internal control.
Aimed at officials as well as the
general public, the measure
stipulates fines of up to $120 for
violations by the former.
Leningrad-born poet Joseph
Brodsky wrote in The New York
Times on May 16: "I wish to
thank all those who in the course
of the past 12 years have been
trying to make it possible for my
parents and me to see one
another again. Now these efforts
to help must stop. In May, the
Soviet consul in Washington
refused to verify my most recent
invitation to my 80-year-old
father, and on April 29, 13
months after my mother, he died
of heart failure in Leningrad."
Brodsky emigrated from the
Soviet Union in 1972.
Sen. Lawton Chiles, D-Fl., has
joined in sponsoring a Senate
resolution calling for United
States' action against the Soviet
Union's practice of intercepting
international mail.
Such interception is a violation
of the Universal Postal Union
Convention.
Sponsors of the proposal
(Senate Concurrent Resolution
121) base it on these concerns:
1. the USSR is involved in an
attempt to cut the lifeline
between Soviet citizens and then-
family and friends outside the
country;
2. the Soviets have been
obtaining hard Western currency
through interception and return
of letters and parcels mailed to
that country and by requiring
prepayment of duty and heavy
surcharges on alleged illegal
packages, not in accordance with
UPU provisions;
3. the Soviet Union is evading
compensatory payments for
non- delivered mail by invoking
obscure UPU provisions.
The Senate resolution, similar
to one pending in the House of
Senator Lawton Chiles
Representatives, urges President
Reagan, acting through the
Secretary of State, to take up the
problem with Soviet authorities
and calls for the U.S. Postal
Service delegation to the UPU
Convention to present the issue
before the 167 member nations
during this year's conference.
"The interception of mail is of
great humanitarian concern to
ethnic and religious groups
behind the Iron Curtain," Sen.
Chiles said. "Many view the
search and seizure of parcels and
letters as one more step in poli-
tical and religious persecution of
dissidents in the USSR and its
satellites."
