Telegraphic Agency has obtained the latest working
paper on the draft resolution on Palestinian rights which
would serve as the basis for the debate opening here
Thursday (Aug. 23).
ACCORDING TO the new working paper, which is
being circulated between members of the Security
Council, the PLO and its supporters do not ask
specifically for the creation of a Palestinian state, as they
did in the original working paper of two weeks ago. The
new operative section of the Kuwaiti-inspired draft
resolution, reads:
"The Security Council affirms: A. That the Pales-
tinian people should be able to exercise its inalienable
rights of self-determination, national independence and
sovereignty in Palestine in accordance with the United
Nations charter and relevant resolution of the Security
Council and the General Assembly;
"B. THE RIGHT of Palestinian refugees wishing to
return to their homes and live at peace with their neigh-
bors to do so and the right of those choosing not to return
to receive compensation for their property."
The new working paper also omitted from the
preamble a reference to the PLO as "representatives of
the Palestinian people." Meanwhile, sources said that the
Aug. 23 Security Council meeting on Palestinian rights
might be postponed.

Former Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin launched an
all out political war against
his long-time rival, Labor
Party Chairman Shimon
Peres. In a new book,
whose first two chapters
were to be published last
week by Maariv, Rabin
accuses Peres as "con-
stantly undermining" his
rule, at all costs. Details of
the new book were pub-
licized by Israel Television.
Rabin wrote that Peres was
determined to become Prime
Minister, and for that goal,
everything was permissible,
including leaking to the press of
state secrets. According to
Rabin, this reached a climax
when the local press publicized
the story of a secret visit by
Soviet emissaries.
regarded the leak with grave con-
cern, and ordered an inves-
tigation among civil servants.
When no one was found respon-
sible for the publication, Rabin
summoned both Peres and
Deputy Prime Minister Yigal
Allon, who suggested that they
all undergo a lie detector test to
see if any of them was Responsible
for the leak.
"Peres became as white as the
wall," wrote Rabin. "He said he
did not find it suitable for a
minister to undergo such a test,
and said he would refuse to do so
in principle. Allon and I ex-
changed glances, and I knew
there was no need to have a test,"
Rabin wrote.
Rabin, in the book, entitled
Service Record, disqualified
Peres from serving as Israel's
Prime Minister on the grounds
that he was never a soldier. Rabin
recalled that he did not consider
Peres the suitable candidate for
Defense Minister in his Cabinet,
but was forced to appoint him by
the implied threat of the ex-

* Daf Yomi
seudo Messiahs
.or' not*: This the third and final installment on the
fessiah in Judaism.
There have been many men who have claimed to be the
liverers of Israel, divinely appointed to establish the promised
pessianic Kingdom. Some were victims of their own intense
sire and delusions; others were impostors seeking to exploit
naive and credulous.
Though cautioned by the early rabbis, as noted in Talmud
nhedrein 97b, "Let despair come to those who make
culations," the quest for the annointed one continued
liroughout the ages. A number of "Messiahs" did appear. Some
ught to accomplish the restoration of Israel to its native land
ough penitence, fasting and prayer; others called for arms.
me were pretenders who assumed the roles of religious
formers. They introduced innovations, some calculated to
bvert the very principles of Judaism. While their influence
s generally limited and of short duration, some succeeded in
tracting substantial groups of followers.
These "Messiahs" began to appear towards the end of the
asmonean Dynasty at the time when Rome began to send
ies to crush the independent state of Judea. The historian,
ephus, writing in the First Century C.E. tells about these
s, "Another body of wicked men also sprung up, cleaner in
eir heads, but more wicked in their intentions, who destroyed
e peace of the city no less than did these murderers the Sicarii -
litical fanatics). For they were deceivers and deluders of the
pie, and under pretense of divine illumination, were for in-
vations and changes; and prevailed on the multitude to act
e madmen, and went before them into the wilderness,
etending that God would there show them signs of liberty."
osephus, De Balle Judaico 13-4, Antiquities of the Jaws, XX
IN THE YEAR 44, Joeephus reported a false Messiah,
tieudas, who proclaimed himself a prophet. He urged the
ople to follow him to the Jordan where he would perform the
racle of dividing the river. He led a band of 400. They all met a
rible fate at the hands of a troop of horsemen sent after them
the Roman Cuspias Fadus.
A short time after this tragic event, a Messiah from Egypt
ithered 30,000 followers. He Ted them to Mount Olive which
ces Jerusalem. He had promised that once there he would
ommand the walls of Jerusalem to give way and that they
Duld come tumbling down. Then they would all enter the city
pgether and possess it. Instead, Felix, the procurator, sent his
oldiers after them. Many were killed but the prophet escaped.
Several years after that, the Romans were wreaking
struction upon Jerusalem when still another Messiah en-
ounced that God had commanded the people to follow him into
be temple where they would receive miraculous signs for their
eliverance. Those who followed him died in the flames.
We also learn from Josephus that Menachem, a warrior, the
Dn of Juda, the Galolean and grandson of King Hezekiah,
Dclaimed himself to be the Messiah. During the war with
Dme, Menachem and his followers attacked the Masada,
aptured weapons and then marched on Jerusalem. They
vetpowered the troops of Agrippa II and captured the fortress
THERE ARE no records of Messiahs from the time of the
struction of the Temple in 70 C.E. until Bar Kokhba led a
evolt against the Romans in Judea in 136 C.E. He was in charge
1 both the economy and the army. He regarded himself as "the
avior come down to the Jews like a star from heaven." The
it Rabbi Akiva saw in him the promise of help from above
ad said, "This is the king Messiah." For three years Bar Kokh-
fought off the Romans. Then he was killed in the battle of
Maimonides reported that he had heard that a
iracle-working Messiah had appeared about 1060 either in
yons, France or Leon, Spain.
Then in 1626, Shabbetai Zevi was born. His father wanted
educate him to become a Talmudist, but at an early age he
ame interested in Kabbalah. He was fascinated by its
During this period extravagent ideas about the coming of
Messianic era, and the redemption of the Jews, were cir-
iated by Christian scholars. Many Christians and Jews ac-
pted these pronouncements. In fact, Manassah B. Israel is
ported to have used this belief as a motive for his plea to
romwell and the English Parliament to readmit me Jews to
SHABBETAI ZEVI, meanwhile, was steeping himself in
e mysteries of the Kabbalah and practicing asceticism and
rtification of the body. He lived thus until he felt purified and
ly to be used as a messenger by God. He began to think of
self as the Messiah and to gather believers.
Sometime between 1663 and 58, he met a preacher, Abraham
la-Yakini, who delighted in mystification. He forged a
inuscript in Arabic characters, entitled it, "The Great
isdom of Solomon," and gave it to Shabbetai. It read, I,
braham, was confined in a cave for 40 years, and I wondered
eatly that the time of miracles did not arrive. Then I heard a
proclaiming, "a son will be born in the year 5386 (1626) to
ordecai Zevi; and he will be called Shabbetai. He will humble
dragon ... he, the true Messiah, wiD sit upon my (God s)
one." (The Jewish Encyclopedia- Funk and Wagnatt Co.,
Shabbetai Zevi succeded in attracting an immense
flowing. Prayers were said for him in synagogues all over
"ope, Asia, and Africa. His initials S Z were posted on theu-
alls. Adherents sent him large sums of money.

Letters to the Editor
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Having read several articles by
Rabbi Thedore Brod, I wish to
say how pleased 1 am. Infor-
mative, intelligent writing
(especially from one so learned
and steeped in religious history
and the culture of all our peoples)
are so greatly appreciated.
As one who had for years been
starved for Jewish news, saying
thank you is not enough.
Keep up the good work and
continue the rabbi's teachings.
Very truly yours,
EDITOR.The Jewish Floridian:
Please discontinue sending me
The Jewish Floridian until I
return to the USA. I am in the
Air Force and have just been sent
to Europe for three years.
However, if anyone in the
Tampa Jewish community
wishes to send a nice Jewish boy
a Passover or Chanukah care
package, my new address is: Sgt.
Leonard L. Bass, 40 CAMS Box
1214, APON.Y. 09293.
Editor's note: Sgt. Bass, we're
printing this in the hope that you
will receive lots of mail and
packages. Come on Tampa, we
can't let Sgt. Bass down!

there, Jacob Popper

)RDING to Popper and
six of their Jewish col-
also received the letter,
letter is believed to be
to RFE's broadcast of
ews with Trifa in May.
Klizabeth Holtzman (D.,
chairman of the House
fy Committee, has been
gating circumstances that

okesman in her office, it

of Grass Lake, Mich.,
^naturalization hearings
within the next 60 days. He is
accused of playing a leading role
the January, 1941 Bucharest
pogrom. As president of the
National Union of Christian
Rumanian Students, the youth
arm of the fascist Rumanian Iron
Guard, he allegedly committed
atrocities that resulted in the
murder of some 1,200 to 12,000
scheduled for July 30, but the
government requested and
received a 60-day continuance.
Rumania, currently seeking Most
Favored Nation status, has
indicated its willingness to co-
operate with U.S. efforts to
obtain further evidence there,
according to a Justice Depart-
ment official.
In June, Noel Bernard, director
of the Rumanian Department for
RFE, met with Holtzman and
with Dr. Charles Kremer of New
York to discuss Trifa's RFE
broadcasts. Kremer, 82, has been
seeking justice for Trifa for over
20 years.
Trifa, head of the Orthodox
Episcopate Church of America,
had been interviewed on RFE on
May 1 for 45 minutes by Liviu
Floda, using the pseudonym
"Brancusi," a Rumanian Jew
who has worked for RFE for
many years. The subject of
Trifa's discussion was the 50th

church, founded in 1952, is under
the aegis of the Russian Ortho-

choice of Trifa came under fire
not only because he is an alleged

also because his church was not

was discussing, according to
As a result of his meeting with

Subsidies Slashed
Prices Up Steeply in 50 Percent Rise
The prices of basic foodstuffs
rose by an average of 50 percent
as the government slashed its
subsidies on these items. Finance
Minister Simcha Ehrlich said
there would be no further subsidy
slashes this year, but there would
be two more within the next 12 to
15 months and they would bring
the government to its desired
goal: stabilizing subsidies at no
more than 30 percent of the cost
of these basic items.
The government announced
immediate relief payments for the
poorest sections of the
populacethose living on welfare
and national insurance
payments. Ehrlich also said there
would also be a special cost-of-
living increment paid to all
salaried and wage-earning people
next month in advance of the
scheduled October payment.
BUT HISTADRUT has called
for a nationwide two-hour protest
strike against the subsidy
slashes. Histadrut Secretary
General Yeruham Meshel claimed
that the new economic steps
would turn hundreds of
thousands of workers into welfare
cases because they would no
longer be able to make ends meet.
The government's move was
welcomed in economic circles and
by the Manufacturers
Association on condition that
it was to be part of a broader
program to prune the national
budget and thereby avoid
printing money which has no
Ehrlich pledged that it indeed
was. He told an interviewer that
the Cabinet would shortly be
presented with Treasury plans
for an additional cut of IL 3
billion in the state budget
(although economists have been
urging a slash of IL 4 or 5
that Prime Minister Menachem
Begin proposed to sell govern-
ment-owned land to private
developers and thereby achieve
two goals: raise funds for the
public coffers and reduce the
spiralling price of apartments.
The Finance Minister ex-
plained that the subsidy slash
was in fact a followup of the
infamous "decide not to decide"
nocturnal Cabinet meeting of
nearly a month ago. That
meeting, Ehrlich said, while it
had decided not to remove all
subsidies at once, had empowered
a ministerial committee to
embark upon a phased cutback of
subsidies of which last night's
action was the first phase.
Some examples of the price
hikes are: a "regular" brown
bread, up from IL 2.59 to IL 3.50;
a challa, from IL 3 to IL 4.80;
sliced white bread, from IL 4.50
to IL7.80; a liter of milk, from IL
5.10 to IL 7.60: a bottle of oil,
from IL 8.30 to IL 12.50; cottage
cheese, from IL 5.30 to IL 8.5;
and frozen chicken, from IL 40
per kilo to IL 58. Treasury ex-
perts said the rises would
produce a 3.5 percent increase in
the cost of living. But in-
dependent experts put the figure
considerably higher.
A television team worked out
that the subsidy slashes would
cost an average family, which
buys one bread, one chicken, one
cottage cheese and one liter of
milk each day IL 900 a month.
Rumania to Open Confab

Historical Perspective of Jerusalej
~- __-* ,nfmfiranl And With t h<. ,t..... .
Miriam Lengyel today is a
painter, ceramist, gardener and
college student, to name but a
few of her many facets. The
widow of Joseph S. Lengyel,
former cantor of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom, Mrs. Lengyel
has lived in Tampa for 25 years.
Born in Berlin, she managed to
leave Germany as Hitler was
coming into power, arriving in
Jerusalem when she was 18 years
old. She served in the Haganah,
the Israeli Army and the Israeli
government before coming to the
United States in 1956.

The dispute over the fate of
Jerusalem rages on relentlessly.
Israel's refusal to give up the
Holy City as its capital is based
on its historical, religious and
moral right to retain it, while the
Arabs claim the city, or at least
the Eastern section as rightfully
theirs. Also, the Vatican focuses
its attention on the Holy City
and would like to see it inter-
Yet upon what facts is the
Moslems' claim based? Mecca
welfare of the sacred shrines
under Israeli administration. Yet
where was the papal outcry over
the destruction of Jewish sanc-
tuaries under King Hussein's
jurisdiction? There was none
His Eminence remained mum.
Should perhaps the century-old
prejudice against the Jews play a
part in his consideration? Israel
has proven its respect and regard
for all denominations as this
plays an important part in Judaic
ethics and has insured freedom
of religion for all.
In order to reinforce Israel's
claim, I shall give a brief resume
of Jerusalem's history through-
out the centuries, including the
present. It will clearly prove
Israel's bond with the City of
David, and also show how the
city fared under Moslem and
Christian occupations, which will
make it obvious why Israel
should retain Jerusalem.
Jerusalem the beautiful, the
fairest of all cities, for which men
battled over centuries, and
perished. You have been cap-
tured, raped and plundered again
and again. Your holiness has
been defaced under the pretext of
religion. Jerusalem, the city of
gold when the sun sets over the
Judean hills. Jerusalem, the city
of silver when the full moon
plunges your white stone dwell-
most significant and
decisive one the first ever to be
fought for freedom of religion,
and in 165 BC the lights in the
temple in Jerusalem were kindled
again in honor of Javeh. The
two decades which followed this
glorious victory raised the Jews
to a pinnacle of glory, such as
they had not known since the
days of Solomon; and then
abruptly plunged them into the
abyss of Roman vassalage. From
135 132 Hadrian banned the
Jews from Israel, and Jerusalem
was again destroyed and its holy
temple replaced by an elaborate
shrine to Jupita, and the city
became known as Adelia
always was, and still is the sane- mgS inrv0 pUre silver, and your
tuary of Islam. Their relationship
to Jerusalem is solely based on
Mohammed's dream, in which
envisioned himself in Jerusalem,
experiencing the presence of
Allah, which prompted the erec-
tion of the Mosque of Omar on
the rock upon which once the
Holy Temple of the Hebrews
proudly stood. Perhaps the
Arabs' claim is based on his-
torical events? Hardly, since
history does not record any
special Arabic roots in this city.
Also a political claim would be
invalid since Jerusalem did not
belong to Jordan, except for a
short period from 1947-1967,
during which time the Arabs
showed little reverence to the
sacred places in their care.
The Jews, however, have their
roots deeply implanted in Jerusa-
lem, as far back as the dynasty of
David. Their religious ties go
back to the first Tabernacle
David placed on the Rock, upon
which King Solomon erected the
Holy Temple in honor of Javeh
on which ruins the Mosque of
Omar stands.
AS FOR the Vatican, His
Eminence the Pope wishes to see
the Holy City internationalized
under the pretext of religion, and
the pretense of fear for the
ancient walls rise majestically
against the dark sky with the
Tower of David extending
towards heaven.
Although the city was founded
about 3000 BC, wave after wave
of destruction and repair, has
made correct historical recor-
dings of events impossible. Only
with the entrance of David the
recorded history of this mag-
nificent city began. His demo-
cratic rule lasted from 1004 965
BC, during which he planned a
temple as a sanctuary for Jah-
weh, the God of the Jews, where
he could dwell amongst his
people. Yet it was King Solomon
who was destined to construct
the temple, and with it Jerusalem
became the Holy City, the capital
of Judea the capital of ancient
and modern Israel. The mag-
nificent temple was Solomon's
greatest achievement, as he
provided his people and all
generations to follow with a lode-
stone for its religion that was to
ensure its survival through every
disaster vicious deliberation
could visit upon it. And from here
on the Jews and Jerusalem
became inseparable. This period
of Jewish history justifies
Israel's claim to the Holy City.
Miriam Lengyel
"If I forget Thee, <>h Jerusa-
lem, let my right hand forgw
it-, cunning. If I forget Thee,
let my tongue cleave to the
i oof of my mouth if I
prefer not .Jerusalem above
my chief joy."
AS IT is impossible to record
Jerusalem's sad history in a few
sentences. I shall confine myself
to dates and events relevant to
the purixise of my writing to
prove that Israel should retain
Jerusalem, administer it wisely
and justly, with religious freedom
and prosperity for all.
Jerusalem was conquered from
the Israelites by Nebuchadrezzar,
and destroyed in 586 BC. After
nearly three generations of exile,
the Jews returned in 538
(Joshua), and it took more than
one decade to restore the city.
Yet when the temple was finally
rebuilt and dedicated, it could not
compare with King Solomon's
temple. Its holy altar was
doomed to be torn down again in
168 BC by the Greeks, who
erected a shrine for Zeus in its
place. The remnants of Jews left
over after fierce battle were
forced into paying homage to the
Greek gods.
At that time a priest. Mat-
tilias, lived in Modin, a small
town to the north of Jerusalem.
This priest, refusing sacrifice to
Zeus, killed one of his tor-
mentors, a Greek officer, and fled
with his five sons, who started
the fateful maccabian war. which
eventually led to the overthrow of
Greek sovereignty. After Mal-
tatias was slain in battle, his
third son, Jehuda Hamaccabi
(The Hammer) took over, and led
his army to victory. This battle
Hebrew Month of Contemplation
When the month of Elul, in our Hebrew
calendar draws nigh, an awakening spirit is
aroused in the minds and hearts of Jews, unlike
the mood of the relaxing summer which will soon
be drawing to its exit. On its heels, days will
become shorter and nights lengthen, within which
we become more conscious of a beckoning sur-
This significant reference is the approach to the
ushering in of the season of Penitence and in-
volving the mercy of God. Elul is regarded as a
spiritual refuge, based upon the guidelines of the
physical cities of refugee in ancient times, "The
Arei Miklat."
For the spiritual inadequacies the Jew needs a
"City of Refuge," including those on the highest
rungs of spiritual attainment. "Cheshbon
Hanefesh" taking stock of all our endeavors is
very compelling during this month of con-
templation. This spiritual inventory cannot be
done by an outsider; it is a deep, penetrating
searching of the soul, wherein each individual
makes a true survey of all events in the past year.
Rosh Chodeeh Elul always consists of two
days, with the first day of Rosh Chodesh serving
as the 30th day of the month of Av. Thus, the
month of Elul always consists of 29 days. Since
Elul is the last month of the year and directly
precedes Rosh Haahanah the Day of Judgement

for all the world's inhabitants, it is therefore
observed in repentance and with recitations of the
traditional penitential prayers. From ancient
times these have been days of reconciliation
between God and Israel. Moses ascended the
mountain on Rosh Chodesh Elul and stayed there
for 40 days, until the 10th of Tishrei. On that day
be brought down the second tablet given to Israel
as a mark of renewed divine favor.
In some places it is customary to rise during
the final hours of the night for the recitations of
Selichot. One could still hear the voice of the
Shamash throughout the very orthodox Jewish
community: "Arise, arise, ye faithful children, to
the service of The Lord."
Beginning with the second day of Rosh
Chodesh, the Shofar sounds are blown daily, its
sounds arousing trepidation in the heart. "If a
Shofar is blown in the city, shall the people not
tremble?" (Amos 3)
However, Erev Rosh Hashanah the shofar is
not sounded, so as to distinguish between the
Shofar blowing of Elul, which originates in
custom, and the shofar blowing of Rosh
Hashanah, which is prescribed by the Torah.
Another custom prevalent in the days of Elul is
sending Holy Day greetings to family and
friends. With the coming of Rosh Hashanah, is it
our fervent prayer for guidance and strength from
the Lord our God. V'Shalom Al Israel"

Writing in the New York
Times, Eugene Kennedy, a pro-

Carter's energy address as con-
taining "a wind of uncertain

Kennedy describes Carter as
"the parson" who speaks
solemnly "of oil and sin" and
who, in an effort to eradicate the
sad image of his slipping
executive powers, "mounts the
pulpit to blame the people for the
miscarried innocence of his own
calling: they are to blame for the
fact that he has never understood
American people "rightfully mis-

crisis in the presidency, whether
or not he will be able to carry on

whether or not he should be per-

fiercely so.

would be the better part of

that the reason so many different

Jewish pioneers after World
War II, when Palestine became a
British mandate.
It was under the British
mandate that Jerusalem's
troubled up-to-date history
began The city fared badly under
British administration. The
economical situation was
hopeless, sanitary conditions
deplorable. Officially there was
freedom of religion, yet de facto
frequently the access to syna-
gogues and the Wailing Wall, the
only remainder of the holy
temple, was denied the Jews by
the Arabs with full consent of the
British administration. The Holy
City was plagued by unholy
demonstrations, by explosions
and slaughter, and her streets
were splattered with blood.
Chaos marked the reign of
Britain. The city was kept in bad
repair, no money was wasted by
this administration except to
divide the city with barbed wire,
enclosing the Jews in undeclared
ghettos an easy prey for
British and Arab raiders. Tension
between Jews, Arabs and British
became unbearable until at last in
1947 the British mandate was
terminated, and the State of
Israel came into being.
DURING the War of
Independence, the eastern part of
Jerusalem was captured by
Jordan with the help of British
officers and British military
equipment. The gates of the old
city were cemented shut, and
thus the Israelis separated from
their Holy City and denied
worship at their sacred shrines.
Although access to the old city
was promised the Jews by the
United Nations under the ar-
mistice agreement, the city
remained inaccessible. Yet
churches, monasteries and
mosques were turned into Arab
strongholds, from which deadly
bazooka barrages were launched,
aimed at the civilian population,
not even sparing the famous
Hadassah hospital. The Arabs
could do so safely in the
knowledge that although the
Israelis would retaliate, they
would avoid hitting those
churches and mosques at all cost,
because the destruction of sanc-
tuaries of any kind would be
contrary to Judaic ethics. In
spite of those constant bombard-
ments and the heavy loss of life
amongst the civilian population,
the Jewish sector of Jerusalem
prospered, while the Jordanian
part remained impoverished.
In June 1967 Jerusalem
became eventually united again,
after the striking Israeli victory
in the memorable Six Day War.
At the outbreak of this war Israel
had pleaded with King Hussein
to keep Jerusalem free of battle
alas, this plea fell on deaf ears.
When finally those cement walls
dividing the Holy City came
tumbling down, the destruction
of Jewish property under Jor-
danian occupation came to light.
The ancient Jewish quarter was
obliterated, the synagogues
devastated, the cemetery on Mt.
Olive desecrated, and its markers
used as latrine stones. Also
churches and cloisters were in
poor repair. Yet no words of
protest were heard from the
ordinarily outspoken United
Nations, nor a reprimand from
the Vatican. Where was the papal
outcry over the deliberate
destruction of godly property?
As a matter of fact, mankind
turned away in silence.
During the past 10 years
Jerusalem under Israeli adminis-
tration became a beautiful city,
bustling with life, economically
sound and prosperous, with
opportunities for Jews and Arabs
alike. All places of worship have
been restored and made acces-
sible to everyone. (If King Faisal
swore not to worship in the
Mosque of Omar as long as
Jerusalem was under Israeli
sovereignty, it would be his
JERUSALEM became a
cultural and scientific center from
which the entire Middle East
could prosper. Its beautiful new
Hadassah Hospital, embedded in
the Judean Hills, is famous not
only for serving Jews and Arabs
alike but for drawing the sick
and ailing from all over Europe to
seek healing from the hospital's
famous physicians, dedicated
nurses and ultra-modern equip-
ment and techniques. Also, the
old hospital on Mt. Scopus,
which saw the massacre of an
entire generation of young
physicians and medical staff by
the Arab Legion in conjunction
with the British Army, has been
rebuilt. Obviously, Jerusalem
could become a radiant city, and
set an example for the rest of the
world and become once more the
Holy City King David fashioned
her to be, if Jerusalem just would
be left alone. Yet, unfortunately,
politics and international in-
trigues won't let the Holy City
My arguments, reinforced by
the foregoing brief historical
report, should have made it
obvious by now that Israel is
capable of restoring Jerusalem to
its greatness, and guarantee
freedom of religion, education
and commerce for all its citizens,
and therefore should retain
Jerusalem as her capital. It
should be obvious by now that
Israel's claim to the city, based
on historical, religious and moral
grounds is fully justified.
Yet as strong and valid as my
arguments may be, they may be
futile in a society whose morals
and ethics have been perverted
by the gods of the Mighty Dollar
and the Almighty Oil.

Minister of Defense.
Peres noted that the element of
revenge was sometimes much
stronger in political autobiog-
raphies than the historical record,
"but I am sure that the truth will
come out one day ."He added:
"I am at peace with myself. My
memory is intact."
Rabin alleged in the book that
"53 hours after the Air France
airliner was hijacked to Entebbe
(Airport in Uganda in July,
1976), Peres had not fulfilled the
minimum requirement of a
Defense Minister, to ascertain
from the commanding officers the
military options "
BUT PERES had a totally
different version: "I am happy
that on the eve of the operation,
Rabin joined in the decision to
carry out the raid, and the
Cabinet approved it."
On the illicit Rabin Washing-
Yitzhak Rabin
ton bank account, which finally
brought him down, Rabin wrote
that six months before the ac-
count was exposed, a "well-
known" Israeli journalist had
informed one of his aides that
certain circles in the Labor Party
knew of the account and planned
to use it to discredit him. These
circles even sent an investigator
to Washington. Rabin ignored
the warning, and this was, he
wrote, his "tragic mistake."
Peres said he thought the book
would do its author a great deal
of harm, and indicated that
Rabin must realize that if Peres
ever became Prime Minister, he
Egyptian Visas in Demand
has been a sudden spurt in the
number of Egyptian visas for
Israelis who wish to visit that
country, it was reported by the
Israeli Foreign Ministry special
office for visas to Egypt.
The office said it had received
59 visas in one batch. Until now,
visas dribbled in in ones or twos.
that the increase in the number of
visas is the result of talks held
earlier between Foreign^Minister
Minister of State for Foreign
Affairs Boutros Ghali. During a
meeting between the two men at
Day an's home, the Israeli
Foreign Minister expressed
disappointment with the slow
pace of visa approvals by Egypt.
Hundreds of Israeli visa ap-
plications were being held up in
Cairo, Dayan told Ghali. The
Egyptian official, who was in
Israel to participate in the
autonomy talks, told Dayan that
the delay was due to bureaucratic

verbal battle with a declaration in
Yediot Achronot that it should be
remembered Rabin was ousted as
Prime Minister not because of
any action by Peres but because
of the discovery of the Rabin
bank account in Washington.
The controversy revived the
situation of 1976 when the issue
of the Labor Party's leadership
was also Peres versus Rabin.
Some sources said Allon might
emerge as the central figure in
the Labor Party because of the
bitter public clash between Rabin
and Peres.
Observers agreed that the
Rabin charges had left Israelis
bewildered and wondering who
was running Israel and who could
run Israel. Israelis were troubled
by an ailing, though recovering
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin, and an ailing Cabinet in
which personal and ideological
rifts repeatedly sparked fights
between the ministers,
situation publicly criticized by
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan
last week.
Even the Labor Alignment
opposition, seeking to capitalize
on the disarray in the ruling
Likud and even maneuvering to
move up the elections in that
hope, was obviously split by
internal disputes.
THE ISRAELI public had
scarcely absorbed Dayan's
sweeping charges of incom-
petence in the Begin government,
when the Rabin blasts were pub-
licized by television. Rabin, in
Bucharest, was not expected to
be back in Israel for several days.
Asked by telephone about Peres'
counterblast, Rabin refused to
comment on any aspect of his
charges against Peres.
The Labor Party leadership
held a closed meeting and the
leaders decided to impose a total
news blackout on their dis-
cussions. It was learned,
however, that some of Peres'
supporters wanted Rabin ousted
from the party leadership, and
ousted immediately. Their argu-
ment was that the situation was a
tumor that must be cut out and
the sooner the better.
But other Labor leaders said
the party should try to dampen
the dispute rather than let it
grow in ferocity. Some of the
leaders expressed deep regret
that Rabin chose this time to cast
aspersions at the party when it
was making excellent progress in
emerging from its crisis.
THE NEWEST rift came after
months of efforts by Labor
leaders to rehabilitate the party
after it lost power in 1977 to
Likud after uninterrupted control
from the start of the State. The
party appeared to have accepted
Peres' leadership.
Even Allon, who had been con-
sidered a candidate for the
party s leadership, soon accepted
Peres as a leader. But Rabin
remained silent until the tele-
vision report made clear his total
rejection of the Peres party
Rabin's supporters, coming to
his defense, cited a statement in
the memoirs of Moshe Sharett,
who served as both Foreign
Minister and Prime Minister,
that he lacked confidence in
Peres. But the main criticism of
Rabin involved not ideology but
his personal attack on Peres.
OTHER speculation centered
on Dayan, with some observers
saying that his criticism of the
present government suggested he
was ready for another major
move, including the possibility of
his rejoining the Labor Party, or
a bid to lead a new party which,
given the rifts in the two major
parties, might emerge as a strong
political grouping.
Meanwhile, many Likud
ministers said they felt that the
Rabin-Peres squabble could not
have come at a better time, in
view of Dayan's stinging
criticism of the government.
Some felt that the Labor
Party's preoccupation with its
own Pandora's Box of troubles
would prevent it from being a real
threat to the Likud government.
Mapam, a partner in the Labor
Alignment, was maintaining a
careful watch on the develop-
ments arising out of Dayan a
criticisms and Rabin's book.
