'Palestinians' List Goes To Reagan
The State Department
stresses that if the United
States meets with a joint
delegation it will be to bring
about direct negotiations
between Israel and the
"We are prepared to meet with
a group of Jordanians and Palesti-
nians if such a meeting would
clearly point toward that goal,"
Robert Smalley, a State Depart-
ment spokesman, said. "The
ultimate objective is to bring two
delegations together, an Israeli
one on the one hand and a joint
Palestinian-Jordanian delegation
on the other."
SMALLEY'S comments came
as he confirmed that Jordan has
sent the U.S. a list of Palestinians
from which the State Department
will decide whether any are accep-
table as the Palestinian members
of the joint delegation.
The Jordanian action was
revealed over the weekend by
King Hussein in Amman.
Secretary of State George Shultz
said in Australia that the U.S. has
received the names, "and we are
in the process of evaluating
them." Neither Shultz or Smalley
would reveal any of the names.
Smalley said he did not know
whether the Palestine Liberation
Organization had played a part in
selecting the list. But according to
reports, Hussein had received a
list from PLO leader Yasir
Smalley reiterated that the U.S.
would not accept members of the
PLO on the delegation. He quoted
Shultz who, at a press conference
last May during Hussein's visit to

legal proceedings in Israel's
history. The defendants, all Or-
thodox Jews, including Gush
Emunim militants, had strong
support from religious and
rightwing nationalist elements in
Israel and among Jews abroad.
They claimed that whatever ac-
tions they engaged in were in
defense of Jewish lives and pro-
perty because the government
allegedly failed to protect Jewish
settlers from Arab terrorists.
But the judges, Yaacov Bazak,
president of the court, Zvi Cohen
and Shmuel Finkelstein, refused
to buy that argument. They re-
jected a defense motion to admit
as evidence examples of what the
accused said was a deterioration
of security for Jewish settlers in

During June, only 36 Soviet Jews received exit
visas. Meanwhile, three additional Hebrew
language activists were arrested.
Analysts believe the Soviet authorities are
testing the reactions of world Jewry, while at the
same time using the issue of Soviet Jews as an ad-
ditional "card" to be used in the process of negotia-
tions with the U.S. (Since U.S. negotiators, respon-
ding to humanitarian and Jewish pressures, are
bound to bring up this human rights issue at one

sumption. Most of Israel's oil
comes from Egypt, Mexico and
Norway. During the years that
Israel held the Sinai peninsula, it
developed substantial oil fields at
Abu Rodeis and Alma (Ras
Kanissa), but it gave up these oil
fields along with the Sinai when
Egypt agreed to a peace accord.
Currently, Israel spends some
$1.5 billion annually for imported
oil, which is one of the major fac-
tors in her economic woes.
The new three-year venture
with the American investor
group, according to Isramco of-
ficials, will be the first thorough
and systematic search in Israel,
covering the entire northern por-
tion of the Negev region, and will
cover a license area of some two
million acres. In addition to
seismic data provided by the
government, the group will con-
duct its own seismic tests.
Oil exploration in Israel has

wells have been drilled in the
country's history, compared to
more than 5,000 in the U.S. last
year alone. Israel has also been
limited to drilling shallow wells,
since the cost of drilling to deep
levels is much higher a deep
well could cost as much as $20
million. Yet, Israeli geologists
have been convinced that chances
for finding oil were better at deep
levels. The large outfits, those
who could have invested in exten-
sive drilling, have been reluctant
to do so in Israel for fear of an-
tagonizing the Arab states with
whom they deal.

defendants were put on trial.
TEN OF THEM were convicted
earlier on the basis of plea-
bargained confessions and are
either serving sentences or have
completed their time. Two others,
Israel Defense Force officers, are
to be tried separately and are
presently free on bail.
Plea bargaining played a part on
the convictions of some of the re-
maining 15 defendants. A charge
of attempted murder was reduced
to causing grave bodily harm in
the June, 1980 car bombings
which maimed two West Bank
Arab mayors and blinded an
Israeli Druze border policeman
when he tried to defuse a bomb in
the car of a third Arab mayor.
One of the accused in that case,
Yitzhak Novik, said in court that

During the past few weeks, we
have noticed, numerous Jewish
publications around the country
carried Rabbi Irving Greenberg's
latest work, entitled "Will There
Be One Jewish People By the
Year 2000?" It consists of four
segments: the first deals with the
"Demographics of Separation";
the second goes into "The
Denominational Politics of
Separation"; the third offers "A
Critique of Separation"; and the
fourth suggests "What Is To Be
It would not do justice to Rabbi
Greenberg and his excellent
treatise either to try abridging
segments from it, or to offer
criticisms when the original has
not been offered to the reader.
But we ask for your patience
we feel that come September, this
publication, along with the
Federation in South County and
the community as a whole, will
suggest, through action, an
answer that might have as much
impact as Rabbi Greenberg's ex-
position of the problem .
The hostage crisis of last month
overshadowed and slowed
down what was building up as
an accelerating "peace process"
campaign, starring King Hussein
of Jordan (who would still like an
arms sale concluded in addition to
$250 million in aid from the U.S.)
Undoubtedly, both partners in
the Israel government coalition
agree that an opportunity to talk
with Hussein should not be miss-
ed; the disagreement is on what
role "the Palestinians" should
play. This means, any way one
looks at it, under what formula
will Yasser Arafat (of late, once
more, a buddy of the king) and his
PLO will come into the picture.
There is every reason to believe
that the PLO, even more than Jor-
dan, is more interested in getting
de facto recognition from the U.S.
than in making some compromises
with Israel.
Understandably, however, the
very mention of peace is like
dangling the most tempting bait
in front of the noses for
Americans in general, and for
U.S. officials (and the State
Department more than anyone) in
York points out, rightly, that a
"formula" suggesting the
"Palestinians" to be included con-
sist of members of the Palestine
National Council is nothing but a
red herring. The argument that
the PLN is not the same as the
Palestine Liberation Organization
is totally fallacious, and is a feeble
and transparent attempt to get
around Israel's insistence that it
will not talk with the PLO. The
PLN is dominated by Yasser
Arafat's factions within the PLO.
with other PLO factions con-
stituting the rest of the
425-member council.
Can the experts bt- wrong?
Following the hostage crisis, most
analysts either warned of
deterioration or said it already <
curred in relation! between the
U.S. and Israel. They also
reported a loss in public support
here for Israel.
Yet the Washington Jtwish
Week, on July 11, reported that
lM)th State Department officials
and those in the Israeli Embassy
asserted that "strange as it might
sound" relations were even better
than before (the hostage crisis).
One of the possible explanations
offered for this: the polls taken
during the crisis reflected merely
I temporary attitude or reaction,
which then shifts back to the
previous position.
The latest economic measures
instituted in Israel are too com-
plicated to explain here (though
you may have seen some valiant
efforts to do so in the JTA
releases by Gil Sedan or Hugh
Orgel). Even the Israeli dailies, in
the past two weeks or so, have
been devoting some 80 percent of
their space to explaining them to
their Israeli reading public and
vet many Israelis say they cannot
understand them. (which
might explain why the Histadrut
gets such a good response when it
calls for a general strike, while at
the same time the polls show as
many as 52 percent support the
government measures .)
However, a couple of vignettes,
in the modern style of the Chelm
stories, certainly are in order:
First, Israel definitely
discriminates against its Jewish
citizens in many ways and the
latest instance is in the $300
travel "ransom" charge. Any
Israeli Arab who wishes to avoid
paying this charge simply travels
to Jordan, and takes his flight to
Europe or the U.S. from there .
For some reason, travel to Jordan
is not considered by Israeli as go-
ing abroad?!
Second, reports MA'ARIV,
while thousands in Israel were
gritting their teeth and cursing as
electric power supply was more
off than on, and traffic lights were
not operational, elevators were
stuck and meat was spoiling in the
refrigerators while all this was
occurring due to "job action" by
the workers of the Israel Electric
Corporation (government-owned),
dozens of I EC employees (respon-
sible for shift operations) were
sunning themselves at a dominoes
game in a fancy hotel on the beach
in Netanya, as part of what is call-
ed, under the benefit package,
professional in-training. Some 200
such employees were scheduled to
take part in these "in-training
courses" last week in two fancy
hotels (at company expense, of
course), on a program which in-
cludes three hours of lectures per
day .
Suicide Car Bomb Attacks
Kill 12 Lebanese, Wound 2
Israeli soldiers were slightly
wounded in the first of two suicide
car-bomb attacks in the south
Lebanon security zone last week
which killed 10 Lebanese civilians
and two soldiers of the Israel
backed south Lebanon Army
(SLA). The drivers of both cars
were killed instantly.
The Israeli soldiers were wound-
ed when a Peugot ij04 car, ap-
parently driven by a woman, ex-
ploded at the border check post at
Ras Bayda on the coastal road.
The post is staffed by the SLA.
According to Israel Defense Force
sources, the Israeli soldiers were
there as instructors. Ten minutes
later, a car driven by a man was
stopped by SLA guards on the
road to Hasbiya in the eastern sec-
tor of the security zone. The
driver left the car to have his
papers examined.
Suddenly, he raced back to his
vehicle and triggered an explosion
which killed the soldiers and

Asked about proposals to cut off
U.S. funds if the conference
becomes politicized, Reagan said
this is impossible since the money
the U.S. appropriated for the con-
ference has already been spent.
The delegation headed by
Reagan is the official U.S. delega-
tion to the conference which will
be run like all UN meetings with
each country having one vote. She
said that because it is an offcial
delegation, all policy decisions are
made by the Reagan Administra-
tion similar to U.S. participation
in other. UN bodies.
AT THE SAME time, last
Wednesday, members of Non-
Covernmental Organizations
(NGOs), which include many
Jewish organizations, met in
Nairobi and discussed at some
1,000 open informal workshops on
issues affecting women.
The 10-day NGO meeting
overlaps the official 12-day UN
conference which began July 15
and ends July 26 at the Kenyatta
International Conference Center.
Although NGO conference
delegates cannot vote at the UN
conference, they obviously hope to
influence some of the issues.
Reagan said her delegation will
probably have daily meetings with
the American NGO delegates.

Peres said.
He praised the "most important job" the WJC is at-

ble feat was being performed to save Jews from Ethiopia,
this community responded in an almost incredible unison to
a call by its leaders (and by this newspaper) and opened
their hearts and checkbooks.
The danger which confronts Jews in another area in
the Soviet Union is in some ways even more serious.
True, only a relative few are in imminent danger of being
beaten or tortured to death, although even that is happen-
ing; but the danger of a slower extinction, and the absence
of a "quick and easy" remedy to be found through raising
money, make this problem the toughest Jews are facing
It is difficult to fathom why there is not a much greater
hue and cry among our people for they have already
demonstrated that they are caring people. In any case, here
is an opportunity. We are providing our readers with more
than 100 names of refuseniks, and asking you to act. Your
Jewish commitment is on the line, just as is the fate of
Soviet Jews. Will you respond?
EDITORIAL N.Y. Times July 14, 1985
Even as its air force again claimed an eye for an eye in
Lebanon last week, Israel's judicial arm declared private
vengeance by Jews against Arabs to be terrorism and
murder. At considerable political cost, this hard-pressed
democracy will jail some of its most dedicated pioneers and
decorated soldiers to proclaim the sanctity of life and law.
Such an assertoin of legal limits even in the midst of a
terror war deserves wide admiration. But for the right
reason: Israel's concern for justice for the Arabs under its
administration is no mere magnanimity. It is a vital act of
self-definition, an effort to add moral armor to Israel's
military strength.
Afer a trial of 13 months, an Israeli court convicted three
Jewish settlers of murder and 12 others of crimes ranging
from manslaughter to belonging to a terrorist organiza-
tion. The defendants were not from some militant fringe.
They included revered army officers and West Bank
pioneers who justified their plots against Arab students,
politicians and a Moslem holy shrine as self-defense.
Many Israelis think of them not as terrorists but as an
underground, necessary to avenge or deter Arab assaults
on Jewish settlers. And now that the trial is ended, the
clamor for clemency will become a potent political issue,
dividing an already tense coalition cabinet. The Govern-
ment will be asked now it dares to jail its sons so soon after
releasing 1.150 convicted Palestinian terrorists in ex-
change for three Israeli prisoners.
Even a light punishment, however, would not obliterate
the symbolic value of last week's verdict. All too often
Israelis complain that they are judged by a double stan-
dard, held to higher norms than are their enemies. To their
everlasting credit, that is also how they judge themselves.

South African Jewish community
is becoming increasingly concern-
ed about the strong vocal opposi-
tion to the South African govern-
ment by American Jewish groups,
which it fears could endanger that
community, a leader of South
African Jewry warned here.
"We appeal to them (American
Jewish organizations) to exercise
restraint and to realize that their
actions and expressions must in
no way jeopardize the integrity or
safety of our community," Dr.
Israel Abramowitz, former chair-
man of the South African Jewish
Board of Deputies, said in an ad-
dress to the B'nai B'rith public af-
fairs forum Friday. "Our local
community interests must be
taken into account."
ABRAMOWITZ, president of
B'nai B'rith in South Africa,
stressed he neither supported nor
spoke for the South African
government. But he said he was
reflecting the views of the South
African Jewish community.
He charged that South African
Jewi believed there was an
"obsessional preoccupation" with
South Africa in the U.S. and much
of the anti-South African
manifestations here were made
for purely American political
While no one denied the
"inalienable right" of American
Jewish organizations to speak out
on any issues, Abramowitz said.
South African Jews questioned
"why are they literally falling and
stumbling over themselves in
their zeal and enthusiasm to get
on the bandwagon of condemna-
tion and protestation."
HE ALSO questioned why
American Jewish organizations
believed it was speaking for world
Jewry and why Jewish groups felt
that they had to lobby Congress
on this issue. He implied that
many of the groups
demonstrating against South
Africa wanted a violent change
rather than the peaceful change
supfiorted by the South African
Jewish community.
While Abramowitz had no
prescribed course for American
Jewish groups to follow, he
strongly urged them to maintain
contact and consultations with
South African Jewish organiza-
tions, which, he stressed, valued
their ties to world Jewry. He said
he was very pleased that K nai
B'rith president Gerald Kraft
would be visiting South Africa
this week.
As for the position of South
African Jewry, "we are obliged to
maintain a cautious stance,"
Abramowitz said. He said there
was always the danger of an anti-
Semitic backlash.
AT THE same time, he pointed
out many individual Jews have
been in the forefront of the human
rights struggle in South Africa.
The South African Jewish Board
of Deputies has also increasingly
spoken out on these issues, most
recently adopting a resolution op-
posing apartheid.
The resolution was adopted not
"in search of any accolades, nor to
please certain quarters of the
community, nor to meet the re-
quirement and pressures of
overseas and international Jewish
bodies," Abramowitz said. "We
have done so because we believe it
is the correct thing for a Jewish
community to do in line with
Jewish ethical and moral
Abramowitz added that the
resolution will also help meet the
charge that "Zionism is racism."
He said that the black community
in South Africa has been influene

ed by Arab propaganda and fre-
quently criticizes the Jewish com-
munity for its strong ties to Israel.
Abramowitz said that while
there is a "tremendous amount of
concern and anxiety" in the
Jewish community about the
future, most are optimistic that
change will come peacefully. He
complained that he has seen little
from the critics in the U.S. about
the reforms being made by the
South African government.
However, Abramowitz stressed
that the Jewish community's
future is tied to that of the white
community in South Africa and
what is happening in Zimbabwe
leaves it uneasy. There, a Jewish
community of 7,500 has shrunk to
a few hundred, he said.
The 119.220 Jews in South
Africa make up 2.6 percent of the
white population and .04 percent
of the overall population,
Abramowitz said. He said the
Jewish community is a "declining
community" and the population
would have decreased sinttj

Ethiopian Jews In Israel Protest]
Against Having To Undergo
Formal Conversion Ceremony
Ethiopian Jews in absorption
centers all over the country pro-
tested angrily Sunday against the
insistence by the Chief Rabbinate
that they undergo a formal con-
version ceremony immersion
but not symbolic circumcision.
The protestors declared this de-
mand constituted a grave insult
and questioned their authenticity
as Jews. They noted they endured
severe hardship and suffering to
get out of Ethiopia and find their
way to Israel. They are being
singled out as no other Jewish
emigre group and it is demeaning
to have their Judaism doubted,
they said.
MANY OF the immigrants
refused to attend their Hebrew
classes Sunday and others refused
to report for work. Activists said
the protests would continue for
three days. The Rabbinate claims
ir is only marginal, artificially fan-
ned by "certain" activists.
It is not clear how widespread
the protest is among the Ethio-
pian Jews, most of whom arrived
here through "Operation Moses"
between November. 1984 and
January, 1985 when the airlift
from Sudan was suspended
because of premature disclosure.
Last week, Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu declared
that he and his colleague,

much," says Bookbinder. While
occasional criticism had also come
from such figures as Philip Klutz-
nick, former world president of
the WJC, and his successor,
Edgar Bronfman, these, too, had
not swayed American Jews.
Americans in general, and
American Jews in particular,
were less critical of Israel's incur-
sion into Lebanon than were
Europeans, though this might not
have been obvious from the
American press.
leading papers as the New York
Times, the Washington Post and
the Los Angeles Times have
begun to reflect the general disen-
chantment with most of the Arab
world and the increasing admira-
tion felt for a stable, democratic
Israel. While still, and traditional-
ly, critical of Israeli policies, the
New York Times has referred to
Israel as an "ally."
There is a strange reluctance in
Government circles to discuss the
differences with Israel which per-
sist the status of Jerusalem, the
building of new settlements on the
West Bank. Ironically, it is
Israel's economic plight that pro-
vokes the greatest expressions of
concern and criticism.
Though the Israelis find this
highly irritating, and there are
brave words from Jerusalem that
Israel will not succumb to political
or economic pressure from
Washington, the truth is that
America's concern arises from a
genuine fear for Israel's survival
as a democratic state, able to aid
the free world.
From Secretary of State George
Shultz to his most junior official
there comes the same message:
"Israel is in grave danger of immi-
nent collapse as a viable power if
she does not rectify her
catastrophic economic position."
ONE LEADING official told
me: "Shultz is an economist, and
he takes a personal interest in
Israel's economic plight: nothing
appears to concern him more at
the moment. Every day, when he
arrives in the office, he asks for an
updating of the situation in
Jerusalem. He is not altogether
happy with what he hears. He
feels that the Israelis could do
more to become solvent. He really
worries about them."
Shultz has surprised the pundits
by becoming one of Israel's closest
friends, despite his former close
connection with major Arab
business interests. One Pentagon
official explained: "We fear that if
Israel fails to win the battle
against raging inflation, she will
have to make cuts in her ar-
maments. This in turn would af-
fect her fighting capabilities and
thus weaken us as well."
Before visiting the State
Department for talks with top of-
Joseph Sisco
ficials, I met two of the depart-
ment's most senior, and most
shrewd, former figures: Joseph
Sisco, who was Undersecretary of
State, and William Quandt, now
with the prestigious Booker In-
stitute, whose reports once great-
ly influenced President Carter.
Both spoke of the changes that
had taken place in the depart-
ment's perception of Israel's role
in the Middle East.
SISCO, in particular, was
delighted that the State Depart
ment was no longer the home of
Arabists eager to please the
Neither man, however,
prepared me for the profound
change in State Department at-
titudes that had occurred since my
last visit. Listening to one influen-
tial official, I had to remind myself
that he was not a spokesman for
the Israeli Embassy Israel was
"the only real democracy in the
Middle East," the only "reliable
and stable ally." The same views
were repeated so often and by so
many different officials that it
became abundantly clear that a
dramatic, almost revolutionary,
perception of Israei had crystalliz-
ed in the State Department.
There were other signs of the
relationship's intimacy. One of-
ficial spoke frankly though,
alas, not for publication of the
precise role the United States had
played in rescuing Ethiopian
Jews. Another described how
closely America was monitoring

INVARIABLY, the answer was
the same: the Jewish State had
proven its democratic spirit and
reliability, while the Arabs, even
the most moderate and well-
meaning among them, had caused
considerable disappointment.
Saudi Arabia had not backed the
peace process sufficiently; Egypt
had not fulfilled its promise to
return her Ambassador to Tel
Aviv; Syria had persistently
torpedoed any peace move and
was collaborating with the Rus-
sians; Lebanon was indulging in
barbarous and unpredictable
behavior; and even that favorite

when Reagan and Congress are

passed with barely an opposing
voice. More significantly, and of
greater benefit, the Administra-
tion made every possible conces-
sion to provide Israel with the uni-
que advantages of a free-trade

of South County is reproducing the entire list and
the guidelines, below.
In addition, the Federation's Community Rela-
tions Council has called on every organization and
individual in the community to mobilize efforts on
behalf of the three most recently arrested, by sending
telegrams to the Soviet authorities asking for their
release and permission to join their families in
The three arrested in June are: LEONID

Aleksander Rekinkov
Ulitzsa Pushkinskaya 16-A
Moscow 103009
Minister of the Interior, USSR
Vitaly Federchuk
Ulitzsa Ogareva 6
Moscow 103009
Cables should read something like these ex-
amples: "PLease drop all charges against Leonid
Vovosky and let him leave for Israel" or:
"Teaching Hebrew, the language of the Jewish
People and of the State of Israel, is not a crime.
Please release Yevgeny Koifman."
With the High Holy Days approaching, in mid-
September, it is now time to start sending holiday
greetings to the refuseniks. Ideally, concerned per-
sons would start a letter-writing campaign that
would be ongoing but at the very least everyone
should make a serious effort to send Rosh Hashana
greetings to the refuseniks.
Your Rosh Hashana greeting may be in English,
Hebrew or Russian but remember that many
refuseniks have not yet learned any Hebrew (and
may know little or no English). A sample Russian
greeting (boxed) with its English translation is
reproduced below. You might also wish to send the
refuseniks a copy of the calendar of Jewy,
holidays reproduced below.
1. Write regularly Writing to
Soviet Jews is meant to be an
ongoing, morale-boosting under-
taking, as well as a means of sen-
sitizing Soviet authorities to the
concern we have for an in-
dividual's treatment. Don't be
discouraged by the lack of response
or infrequent response from a
Soviet Jew; they want your mail,
and there may be good reasons for
sporadic replies or no reply.
2. Letters should be personal,
warm and sympathetic, providing
solidarity and kinship. Indicate
that the family has come to the at-
tention of the writer who would
like to correspond with them
regularly. You may wish to
discuss topics of mutual interest
i.e., family, birthday greetings,
etc. In general, letters should not
be "anti-Soviet," and political
polemics should be avoided. Let-
ters should not mention names of
special organizations working for
Soviet Jewry.
3. Initially, avoid using overt
Jewish symbols in cards, such as
the Star of David, or overt men-
tion of Israel in letters. This will
increase chances that your letter
will be delivered. The response you
receive unit set the tone for further
correspondence. Some Jews will
write openly about their condition
while others prefer to deal in
4. The writer should inquire
about health, birthdays, anniver-
saries, etc. Send cards to
celebrate these events with the
Soviet family. Cards should also
be exchanged for the Jewish
holidays, i.e., Rosh Hashanah
"Shana Tova" greeting cards.
Snapshots of family gatherings
and home observances, such as
lighting Chanukah candles, etc.,
should also be exchanged with
Soviet Jews.
5. Letters may be written in
English, Russian, Yiddish or
Hebrew. Many people read and
write at least one or two of these
languages. In your first letters,
ask which languages would be
most convenient in future
6. Postage can be varied, i.e.,
letters, postcards, registered
mail, etc. You never know what
gets through. Most letters,
however, should be sent
registered, air mail, return-receipt
requested. If you have not receiv-
ed a signed receipt after two mon-
ths, contact your post office to file
an official complaint. To better
keep track of undelivered mail,
letters should be numbered and
records kept. You might want to
xerox copies of letters important
to you, and sent twice.
7. Remember, feedback is im-
portant; writers should keep the
mail they receive and inform the
CRC as to the progress of the cor-
respondence. (In coordinating
community involvement across
the nation, NJCRAC is in cons-
tant contact with the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry and
other sources of information in
the United States and elsewhere.)
8. Copies of letters of more than
routine interest, i.e., news about
visa refusal, ah illness, harass-
ment, etc., should be forwarded to
Geri Gellert, CRC Director, 336
Spanish River Blvd., Boca Raton,
FL 33431.
9. If, in the course of exchang-
ing letters, requests are received
for material or financial
assistance, please check before
answering to help evaluate the
situation at the time. If you would
like to telephone your Russian
"penpal," call for suggestions and
procedures Mrs. Gellert will
refer you to the appropriate peo-
ple at NJCRAC
10. Be sure to answer all letters
received from Jews promptly. Con-
tinue to write even if no response
is forthcoming since your first let-
ter might not be delivered.
11. At some point, you might
consider traveling to the Soviet
Union to visit the Refusenik that
you correspond with. Many have
done so. In thinking about such
travel, please consult with Mrs.
Gellert before making definite
12. Although mail is usually
delivered when addressed the
American way. the standard Rus-
sian way to address a letter to the
Soviet Union is:
(Zip Code)
Postage rates for mail going to
the Soviet Union are as follows:
Postcard $ .33
Airgram .36
Airmail Letter .44
Registered Mail 3.60
Return Receipt .70
(registered mail only)
14. Should the family seek and
be granted permission to leave,
contact should be maintained
when the members arrive in
Israel. Moral support, even
through the mail, can ease the
transition for new UUm.

But the then Justice Minister,

said that he had perceived a

following the Bitburg incident,
and he alleged that the Pentagon
had refused to allow Israel to test

Concern has also been voiced at
the White House's insistence on
selling sophisticated arms to the
Jordanians and on providing them
with more financial aid. This anx-
iety was reinforced when Hussein
brought off a diplomatic coup by
apparently persuading Reagan

therefore, an accessory after the
fact (if not before it). But because
he is clean-shaven, looks plausible,
speaks English after a fashion and
was not directly involved in ac-
tually killing anyone, he assumed
the role not only of a "moderate,"
but of an arbiter and savior.
And, in order to keep his face
before the cameras, Berri milked
the drama for all it was worth,
releasing this hostage one day,
and that hostage the next. Most
bizarre of all was his parading of
AllynConwell as "spokesman" on
behalf of the hostages.
NO ONE who has not been sub-
jected to the sort of torments suf-
fered by the hostages has a right
to comment on their conduct, but
I think I may be forgiven for sug-
gesting that Conwell's behavior
was less than heroic. He may, on
his first appearance, have been ac-
ting under duress, but he must
have been aware that a fellow
passenger had been bludgeoned
into sensitivity and shot dead for
the crime of being an American,
and if no one expected him to de-
nounce his captors for the
murderous thugs they are, he
could have used the opportunity to
keep his mouth shut and not in-
dulge in an instant appraisal of
Middle Eastern problems.
Again it might be argued that
he had no such option and that he
was being manipulated by Berri,
who was exploiting the fears and
miseries of innocent men to ad-
vance his political aims. But
weren't the media doing the same
to enlarge their viewing figures?
The newsmen on the spot have
their every instinct trained to
catch every moment of drama as it
takes place, and to get their
stories out whatever happens; and
they work under such pressure
and, not infrequently, such
hazards that they have no time
to reflect on the consequences of
their work.
BUT WHAT of the men who
take their editorial decisions in
the calmer atmosphere of New
York or London, or their
overseers in the boardrooms? Can
they still be unaware that televi-

of Philosophy, associate adjunct
professor of biology at the Univer-
sity of California, San Diego and a
UCSD Cancer Center researcher.
He is co-author of a paper describ-
ing these findings which appears
in the June 20 issue of Nature.
HTLV-I is of interest to resear-
chers because of its strong
association to adult T-cell lym-
phoma (ATL), a rare form of
cancer which occurs at a higher
rate in certain communities in
Japan and the Caribbean. More
than 90 percent of the Japanese
Collaborators in this study are ATL patients are infected by the
Zvi Ben-Ishai (PhD), of the Ram-
bam Medical Center in Haifa,
Israel; and Fred Jensen (DVM), of
Cytotech, Inc. in San Diego, Calif.
"WE NOW have a population of
12,000 individuals who can be
monitored," said Haas. "We hope
to learn more about where this
virus comes from, how it is spread
and what the repercussions of in-
fection are. We also hope to clone
the Falasha HTLV gene to con-
duct laboratory studies."
As immigrants to Israel, the
Falashas are under close medical
supervision by the Israeli public
health system, so data could be
collected over the years to come,
Haas explained.
The HTLV virus was first
isolated in 1980. Three distinct
subtypes of the virus are known:
HTLV-I, linked with adult T-cell
lymphoma; HTLV-II, about which
little is known; and HTLV-III,
associated with Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
HTLV-I virus, and a similar
percentage of the Caribbean pa-
tients carry the virus.
Haas stresses that no proof ex-
ists that HTLV-I virus causes
cancer or any other disease. It is
not associated with AIDS. It ap-
pears to require prolonged, in-
timate contact or contact with an
infected individual's blood for
transmission. Antibodies to
HTLV-I have also been found in
healthy individuals.
The possible link between some
viruses and certain types of
cancer, including ATL, has been
an area of increasing interest to
scientists in recent years. By
following the Falashas, scientists
may answer some important ques-
tions about how a virus invades
healthy cells and causes them to
become cancerous; and why some
infected individuals are not af-
fected by the virus.
THE FALASHAS are an an-
cient Ethiopian tribe which is
believed to have migrated from
Israel to East Africa after the
destruction of the First Temple in
Jerusalem in the Sixth Century
BCE. They have been persecuted
for hundreds of years by the
Moslem and Christian Ethiopians
and led an impoverished existence
in primitive, disease-ridden moun-
tain communities where the life
expectancy, is 39 years for
women, 43 years for men.
In recent years, their persecu-
tion intensified and thousands
died. Thousands more fled to
Israel. They are not allowed to
leave Ethiopia and must under-
take a strenuous, clandestine
journey to escape to Israel, so
most of the relocated Falashas are
young and healthy, according to
Since they are now receiving
medical attention in Israel and
their standard of living has been
improved, they should provide
valuable information about the
progress and transmission of the
HTLV-I virus, he said.

Foundation Launches Project To
Reinforce Jewish Identity
pilot project designed to
reinforce Jewish identity in

munities of Scandinavia and
France was announced here
by the Memorial Foundation
for Jewish Culture.
According to Philip Klutznick,
Foundation president, the pro-
gram will be targeted for persons
25 to 45 years of age since they
are the "least involved in Jewish
communal life in Scandinavia and
France, yet they possess con-
siderable potential for the future
of Jewish life there."
The project was announced at
the beginning of the meeting of
the Foundation's Executive Com-
mittee here by Fritz Hollander of
Stockholm, co-chairmen of the
Commission of Dispersed Jewish
THE GOAL of the project.
Klutznick said, "is to create a con-
tinuing group dynamic and inter-
change that will help the par-
ticipants deepen their knowledge,
understanding and commitment
to the Jewish community so that,
ultimately, they can be integrated
into the existing Jewish communi-
ty and assume leadership roles."
The project will take the form of

dispersed Jewish communities,
the vital need is for adequately
trained and deeply motivated per-
sonnel. Here the Foundation has
already achieved notable success.
"IN OSLO and Helsinki, rabbis.
trained in Israel with Foundation
help, have in a short time revived
and transformed both the
religious and general Jewish life.
Oslo had not had a full-time rabbi
in almost 20 years. Israel-trained
Rabbi Michael Melchior came and
opened the first Jewish
kindergarten in Oslo since the
Holocaust, revitalized the after-
noon Hebrew school and reac-
tivated the Jewish youth groups.
In Helsinki. Rabbi Ove
Schwartz has reorganized the all-
day elementary Jewish school, in
which close to 85 percent of all
Jewish youth in the community
are enrolled. Rabbi Schwarz serv-
ed not only as Helsinki's Jewish
spiritual leader but also as its
shohet, mohel, Jewish educator
and youth worker."
Service to dispersed Jewish
communities is one of the three
new directions the Foundation is
taking, Klutznick announced. The
other two new directions are in
the area of informal Jewish educa-
tion and the stabilization of the
Jewish family.
IN THE AREA of informal
Jewish education, the Nahum
Goldmann Fellowship will provide
an intensive experience in Jewish
learning and living at a three-
week summer institute in Europe
for the cultural advancement and
leadership development of a
carefully selected group of
outstanding young Jewish men
and women in Europe. Goldmann
was a founder and president of the
In its third new direction, the
Foundation announced that it will
develop a pilot program to reach
"unaffiliated American Jewish
families" through Jewish family
life education. The Foundation
will seek to implement a set of
programmatic recommendations
developed by Professor Samuel
Heilman of Queens College, utiliz-
ing appropriate "marketing"
techniques to penetrate these
types of Jewish homes.

the Air Force filed an appeal with

which upheld the Air Force ban.
COLPA then filed an appeal
from the circuit court ruling with
the Supreme Court, which is now
considering whether to accept the
case, Dennis Rapps. COLPA ex-
ecutive director said.
He also reported that a Defense
Department Study on Religious
Practices in the Armed Forces
recommended that uniformed per-
sonnel not be allowed to wear yar-

THE STUDY was required by
legislation passed last year by
Congress under sponsorship of
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R.. I'tah) and
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D.. N.Y).
Allen Rothenberg, COLPA presi-
dent, said the COLPA officials
would meet at a date yet to be
determined with Hatch and
Solarz. Rothenberg said the pur-
pose of such a meeting would be to
determine a possible legislative
solution to the problem.
Rothenbeg said that Nathan
Lewin, COLPA vice president,
and David Butler, COLPA board
member, are representing
Goldman in his appeal to the
United States Supreme Court.
Rapps said the legal issue is
whether or, not in the absence of a
specific statute providing for
wearing of a yarmulke on duty,
the First Amendment's guarantee
of the free exercise of religion re-
quires the Defense Department to
permit the wearing of yarmulkes
on duty by observant Jews.

He considered the presence of

favoritism toward the defendants.
Although bail was denied, the ac-
cused were allowed to mingle
freely with family and friends.
They were allowed to talk to
reporters during recess and had
access to telephones.
A minor scandal occurred last
month when the defendants, be-
ing transported from the cour-
thouse to jail, were permitted to
take a swim in the Mediterranean
enroute. The police officer in
charge was severely reprimanded
and demoted.
THE SENTENCES were being
awaited with keen anticipation.
Life sentences are mandatory for
the men convicted of murder and
tough sentences seem likely for
the others. But most Israelis
doubt any of the convicts will
serve more than token time.
Israel's release last May of
1,150 Palestinian and other ter-
rorists serving sentences for
murder and other serious crimes
- in exchange for three Israeli
soldiers held by Palestinian ter-
rorists in Damascus touched off
demands for the immediate
release of the accused Jewish ter-
rorists. The issue became hotly
, political.
Mideast Not Prominent
Agenda Item During
Reagan-Gorbachev Talks
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir does not believe the
Middle East will figure pro-
minently on the agenda of
President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev when they hold their
summit meeting in Geneva
in November.
Shamir noted, in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, that the Reagan Ad-
ministration has run into serious
difficulties in its efforts to revive
the peace process on the basis of a
joint Jordanian-Palestinian
negotiating team.
HE DID NOT appear to agree
with some non-governmental
observers who believe
Washington must make progress
in the Middle East before the
Geneva summit in order to resist
Soviet pressures to involve
Moscow in the diplomatic process
But according to Shamir, there
are too many obstacles to pro-
gress. "There are differences bet-
ween the PLO and Jordan, within
the PLO itself and between the
Arabs and the Americans," he
The basic Arab aim is to pro-
mote direct dialogue between the
U.S. and the Palestine Liberation
Organization, whereas the Ad-
ministration's goal is to pave the
way for direct talks between the
Arabs and Israel, Shamir pointed

refused to say whether Israel
would have any say in selecting or

The U.S. has said it will accept
members of the Palestine Na-
tional Council, who are not
members of the PLO, on the
delegation. But Israel considers
all members of the PNC as
members of the PLO.
Smalley could not give any time
limit for the U.S. decision to be
made. He said the U.S. hoped the
negotiations between Israel and a
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation
could begin this year.
If the U.S. approves members of
the Palestian delegation, Richard
Murphy, Assistant Secretary of
State for Near Eastern and South
Asian Affairs, would head the
U.S. delegation for talks with a
joint Jordanian-Palestinian
delegation. Murphy is not ex-
pected to go to the Mideast until a
decision is made on the list of
The Arabs, including Jordan,
balk at this. They insist on an in-
ternational peace conference on
the Middle East which would in-
clude not only the so-called
moderate Arab states but the
regional hardliners and the Soviet
Union as one of the five par-
ticipating permanent members of
the United Nations Security
Council, Shamir said.
HE SAID he has no idea
whether Richard Murphy, the
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State
for Near Eastern and South Asian
Affairs wiuld be coming to the
region this month as planned.
Murphy's trip reportedly has
been postponed because the U.S.
has not been given a list of Palesti-
nians who would form part of the
joint delegation with Jordan. To
be acceptable to the U.S. and to
Israel they must have no known
connection with the PLO.

Reagan Urged To Stand By Pledge
To Oppose Attacks On Zionism
Five Jewish women, four of
them heads of major
American Jewish organiza-
tions, sent a telegram to
President Reagan stating
that they "have just learned
that a resolution may be
proposed" at the United Na-
tions Women's End of the
Decade Conference in
Nairobi, Kenya, "defining
Zionism as an obstacle to
development, like racism
and apartheifl."
Bernice Tannenbaum, chair-
man of the World Zionist
Organization-American Section
and its delegate to the conference,
said the telegram, which had been
sent by the five Jewish women
leaders who had met with Reagan
at the White House last August,
urged the President to reaffirm a
commitment personally made to
the five leaders that the U.S.
delegation to the conference
would walk out in the event that
an anti-Zionist resolution is
IN THEIR telegram, the
Jewish women urged Reagan "to
instruct the U.S. delegation to
walk out of any session if such a
resolution should be presented
and to state that under the cir-
cumstances the U.S. will not
finance this UN program.'" The
U.S. delegation to the conference
in Nairobi will be led by Maureen
Reagan, the President's daughter.
The statement released by the
White House on August 16, 1984
said: "The President made clear
today that the United States will
actively oppose any conference
agenda item which deviates from
important women's issues and
calls for the discussion of non-
germane, political issues, in-
cluding any agenda item that
could be used as a vehicle to
defame Israel .
"In particular, the President
noted that the United States will
oppose any agenda item at the

The study, presented here

although Austrians admittedly
still score high when polled on
their attitudes toward specific
characteristics of

and anti-parliamentananism. But
the study insisted, these attitudes
too are declining, although only

generation of historians, cited
figures showing that significant
numbers of Austrians hold views
which were part of Nazi ideology.
He noted that 40 percent of the
population believes there are bet-
ter and worse nations; 15 percent
still contend that Austria needs
more territory for "lebensraum";
and 21 percent would prefer
political decisions to be made by a
single, competent politician rather
than the long, complicated
