Israel Consul Visits Here
"If a consensus of opinion were
taken in Israel today, there would
be two points clearly shown: 1.
No divided Jerusalem and 2. No
Palestinian State."
These were the words of Consul
Yuval Metser, consul of in-
formation of the Atlanta office of
the Consulate General of Israel.
Even in the area of the West
Bank Settlements, there would a
consensus regarding their im-
portance."
Consul Metser added that
autonomy of the West Bank is
open to negotiation, but there are
certain items which are NOT
negotiable namely: That were
there to be a "West Bank State"
it could not have its own foreign
policy, legislation or foreign
defense. For those areas, the
West Bank State" would have
to look to Israel. But within that
framework, there is a very large
area to negotiate, stated the
visiting Consul. "Sovereignity is
negotiable. The right to be there
is not negotiable.
"Israel is being labeled as
intransigent. Even a disaster in
South America would today be
blamed on Israel," he said.
Speaking from his own
knowledge, the Consul said the
tons of material about Israel is
being sent to the press, but it is
not getting into print unless it is
unfavorable.
Speaking of the economy, he
For Libya
emphasized that today it is the
exports of jewelry, electronics
and metal work which are leading
in Israel. "From exporting $50
million in 1950 to $7 billion in
1980 is quite an economic growth.
Still," he said, "it is the
dependence on foreign resources
for raw materials which holds
Israel back."' He continued by
saying that Israel's only natural
resource was creativity.
"Today's taxes in Israel
average over 35 percent with a
maximum of 80 percent." This
refers to the personal income tax.
The economic situation is such
that the Foreign Ministry is still
not committed to opening an
office in Miami and continues to
run only one office in the
southeast, in Atlanta.
Consul Metser had lunch with
some of the leaders from the
Jewish community and used the
opportunity to clear up Israel's
position regarding three issues
presently under discussion,
autonomy of the West Bank,
Jerusalem and the West Bank
settlements.
Another point which Consul
Metser wanted to set straight
was the matter of Israelis leaving
their country in great numbers.
"It just is not true," he stated.
"That rumor has been verified as
false by the American Embassy.
But like so many tall tales, it just
continues to go on."

JERUSALEM (JTA)
Prime Minister
Menachem Begin's senior
aide said here that the
Prime Minister's Office
"will be moved to East
Jerusalem a"nd I hope it
will be soon."
Mattiyahu Shmuelevitz,
director general of the
office, told a radio in-
terviewer that Begin
wanted the move to be
ratified by a Cabinet
decision, and that had not
yet been done. But "I hope
there won't be any ob-
stacles" to moving the
office, he added.
SHMUELLEVITZ noted that
work began six years ago on
building a complex of govern-
ment ministries at a site in East
Jerusalem. "We cast our eyes on
one building which is in a very
advanced stage of construction,"
he said.
According to press reports
here, U.S. Ambassador Samuel
Lewis told Begin before the latter
suffered from a mild heart attack
last month that he would not call
on him if his office was moved to
East Jerusalem.

Tempers Flare as Sadat
Labels Begin 'Depressed9
By DAVID LANDAU
AND GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The recent sharp ex-
changes between President
Anwar Sadat and Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
over Jerusalem is souring
relations between the two
countries. Sadat said, in an
interview with Yediot
Achronot Friday, that he
would not visit Israel at
this time as previously
planned because of
"personal critical com-
ments" by Begin. He said
he would reconsider only
after "Begin calmed
down."
The Egyptian leader said,
however: that he would invite
President Yitzhak Navon to
Cairo to address the People's
Assembly (Parliament) in
reciprocation for Sadat's speech
to the Knesset in November,
1977. Sources close to Navon
indicated that the President
would accept such an invitation if
it was extended formally but only
if the government approved.
They also made it clear that
Navon would consult closely with
Begin before making such a trip
and would coordinate his address
in Cairo with the Prime Minister.
BEGIN, who is convalescing
at his home from a mild heart
attack, reacted strongly last
Tuesday to Sadat's assertions in
a Headers Digest interview that
Israel, and Begin specifically,
was responsible for the deadlock
in the autonomy negotiations.
Begin replied that the
negotiations could be completed
successfully if the Egyptian
President would "stick to the
Camp David accords."
According to diplomatic
practice, it is Sadat's turn to visit
Israel since Begin was last in
Egypt. Sadat told Yediot
Achronot that he has shelved his

Leading Jewish Republicans Hail
Reagan's Choice of Bush as Veep
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
DETROIT (JTA) Jewish Republicans who
have been in the forefront of the campaigns of Ronald
Reagan and George Bush for the highest office in the
land have enthusiastically hailed Presidential nominee
Reagan's choice of Bush as his running mate and predict
that this combination is sure to triumph in the national
elections next November.
Carter Aide Foreign Agent?
WASHINGTON -
UTA) Richard Shadyac,
a Washington lawyer
reported to have been ap-
pointed by the Carter-
Mondale Reelection Com-
mittee to head an Arab-
American drive on behalf
f President Carter's re-
election, has been disclosed
to be registered with the
Department of Justice as a
foreign agent lobbying on
ehalf of the Libyan
government.
Shadyac, a Maronite Christian
of Lebanese descent, is registered
as chairman of the Arab-
American Dialogue Committee
which is identified as a lobbying
organization for Libya. It has
listed expend*1"1*8 of more l,
$217,000 since last March, part of
it political contributions to
certain Congressmen and
Senators.
ACCORDING TO press
reports, a spokesman for Carter
campaign committee Chairman
Robert Strauss denied that
Shadyac was associated with the
committee or that he had ever
been formally offered a job with
it. Shadyac could not be reached
for comment.
The Jewish Telegraphic
Agency reported that Shadyac
was picked by the Carter-
Mondale committee to head the
Arab-American committee to re-
elect Carter and Vice President
Walter Mondale.
Shadyac himself confirmed to
the JTA that "there are three-
and-a-half million Arab
Americans in the United States
now, and with luck I would say
that 85 to 90 percent of them will
vote for Carter."

Industrialist Gordon Zacks of
Columbus, Ohio, who was an
early supporter of Bush's
primary campaign for the
Presidential nomination and
served as his national vice
chairman of finance and deputy
chairman of his national political
campaign, told, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency:
FOR THE sake of the
country, the free world and the
State of Israel, Ronald Reagan
has selected the most qualified
candidate. I commend his
judgment. I am confident that
the ticket of Reagan and Bush
will go on to victory in
November."
Los Angeles attorney Albert
Spiegel, who, with financier
Theodore Cummings, also of Los
Angeles, has been among
Reagan's chief supporters, said
he was pleased with the choice of
Bush as the Vice Presidential
candidate. Noting that the
Jewish community in general is
liberal on certain issues, Spiegel
said "Bush's position on issues is
closer in his feelings to the
(Jewish) community than some
others who were under con-
sideration for Vice President."

Volunteer Mileage Deduction Bill
H.R. 5409, the volunteer I
Mileage Deduction BUI, in-
troduced by Congresswoman
Barbara Mikulski and Sen. David
Durenberger in the U.S. House of
Representatives and Senate,
respectively, is now before the
U.S. Congress.
H.R. 5409 (and the similar S.
1869) addresses the crisis which
programs relying on volunteers
are now facing. Under current
law, volunteers driving their cars
for charitable purposes or for
veterans' organizations are
entitled to deduct 8 cents per mile
less than half the 18.5 cents
per mile permitted for business
purposes.
Due to the rapidly increasing
cost of gasoline, volunteer
programs across the country are
losing some of their volunteer
drivers. Without this new
legislation, which would allow
volunteers to deduct 18.5 cents
per mile, massive cutbacks in
volunteer programs could occur,
thus severely curtailing vital
services basic to the functioning
of our society.
Writing to your U.S.
Representatives and Senators,
urging them to support the
Volunteer Mileage Deduction Bill
(H.R. 5409 in the House, and S.
1867 in the State! might help
insure the passage of this bill.

Rabbi Rosenthal at Congregation Kol Ami Religious School
Congregation Kol Ami
Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal has
arrived in Tampa to assume the
pulpit at Congregation Kol Ami.
He will be the first permanent
rabbi for this congregation.
Habbi Rosenthal is a May
graduate of the Jewish Thelogical
Seminary in New York and is
originally from California. His
wife, Judy is from Alabama.
They are making their home in
Northdale with their two
children, Rachel, 2'A, and Adam,
6 months.
Congregation Kol Ami's
Membership Committee will be
hosting a series of coffees for
prospective new members during
August.
New members are the
tifeblood of any congregation,"
said Membership Chairperson
Robert Levine. "Our committee
felt that a number of intimate
and personal evenings in
members' homes was the best
way to introduce unaffiliated
individuals and families to the
wide range of benefits available
to members of Kol Ami."
Congregation Kol Ami has
experienced rapid growth since
its inception three years ago. It is
a liberally oriented Conservative
synagogue which endeavors to
provide for the religious, cultural
and social need of members who
encompass a wide variety of
religious backgrounds.
In addition to holding Shabbat
evening services on the first and
third Friday evenings of the
month at 8 p.m. at the Com-
munity Lodge at Waters and Ola,
the Congregation has active
Chavurot (Frienship Circles), a
Sisterhood, Men's Club, and
provides a Religious and Hebrew
School for its youth.
A full calendar of activities is
"Our goal is nothing less than
providing our youth with the
finest Jewish education
possible."
With these words, Dr. Helene
Silverman. chairperson of Kol
Ami's Education and Youth
Committee, initiated the
congregation's 1980 Religious
School Enrollment Drive.
Congregation Kol Ami, a
Conservative synagogue located
in north Tampa, offers a complete
Religious and Hebrew School
program for children of varied
ages, abilities and backgrounds.
The pre-school, kindergarten
and primary grades 1 and 2 meet
on Sundays between 10 a.m. and
noon. Children in public school
grades 3 through 7 are enrolled in
an additional Hebrew language
component which meets on
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4
to 6 p.m., as well as on Sunday
mornings. Special arrangements
are provided for seventh graders
who cannot attend regular week-
day sessions due to conflicting
school hours.
The congregation's Rabbi and
School Committee are committed
to innovative and exciting
educational techniques. They are
endeavoring to make Kol Ami's
Religious School not only
culturally and religiously
enriching, but also happy and
exciting as well. An energetic and
committed school faculty is
currently being assembled. Last
year's highly successful
curriculum is being updated and
improved in order to take ad-
vantage of new materials and
educational theories.
In addition to formal
classroom study, a number of
informal
programs
and
are
family oriented
being considered
for the coming year. Among
these will be class services,
holiday celebrations, and a
Shabbaton (overnight).
All of Kol Ami's religious
school students are eligible for
Mar or Hat Mitzvah at the age of
13 and the completion of a
designated course of study. The
congregation is pleased that it is
able to offer individualized and
personalized tutoring for all Bar
and Bat Mitzvah candidates.
Parents interested in quality
Jewish education for their
children (and not presently
members of a congregation) are
invited to call Rabbi Leonard
Rosenthal (962-6381) or Dr.
Silverman (949-3985) for further
information about the school and
affiliation with Congregation Kol
Ami.
Rabbi Rosenthal
planned for each month ot the
year. These include educational,
religious, and cultural programs.
In addition, the congregation's
rabbi is available to all its mem-
bers for a variety of pastoral
services.
Shortly, the congregation
plans to begin construction on
the first phase of its permanent
facility to be located on Moran
Road, one block east of Dale
Mabry. A staffed interim office
will soon be opened.
Any unaffiliated individual or
family who desires further in-
formation about Kol Ami and its
activities is invited to attend one
of its prospective member coffees
which will be held on Wednesday,
Aug. 6; Tuesday, Aug. 12;
Tuesday, Aug. 19; and Wed-
nesday, Aug. 20. There is no
obligation. For more information

responding to recent media
coverage of open opposition to
Begins policies, hailed Begin as
"a statesman who *3 motivated
by a sincere desire for peace, and
deplore those who assail his
leadership and undermine his
efforts."
RABBI SHOLOM GOLD,
past president of Young Israel
Rabbis and IRCSI co-chairman,
said that the committee's
foremost concern is the Jews who
ve in Israel and stressed that
autonomy is a stepping stone to
* creation of a Palestinian
"Me, which constitutes a clear
danger to the life and Kmb of each
ndevery Jew in Israel."
Though Gold would not
comment when asked about
territories already returned by
Israel to Egypt, he did say "that
y further return of territories
Places Israel in dire jeopardy."
He also reiterated the need for
* on the committee to
WMicue a legal ruling from the
'"mud. later codified by nb>
b"c authorities, to protect the
lnd from conquest by
"dangers."
The new and old legally
"tabhshed settlements in
Judaea and Samaria are not
obstacles in the way of peace, but
rather are the frontline of defense
for the State of Israel, he con-
tinued.
THE COMMITTEE
proclaims, "Jerusalem will for all
times remain the indivisible,
eternal capital of the Jewish
people, will never be divided, nor
will the flag of any other nation
fly from its ramparts," and calls
on the American government to
resist pressures from countries
hostile to Israel when negotiating
sales of military equipment which
could be used against it.
Rabbi Zevulen Lieberman, of
Congregation Beth Torah of
Ocean Parkway, who said he
represents the Sephardk com-
munity in that area of Brooklyn,
and is an active member of the
IRCSI, said the organization
comprises 376 members who are
communal leaders in the "old
tradition" and whose purpose is
to guide the American Jewish
community in their concern for
the "safety, welfare and
protection" of the three million
Jews in Israel.
"We are not a political lobby
group or pressure group," he
continued, saying that he hoped
the committee's views would be
made known through the press.
THE PRESIDENT of Young
Israel Rabbis of America, Rabbi
Chaim Wasserman, claimed that
recent announcements by pro-
minent members of the Jewish
community opposing current
Israeli policy has only
confused American Jewry and do
not represent the majority. He
said the task of today's Jewish
leaders is to direct these "con-
fused people."
Rabbi Isaac Pupko, of
Congregation Beth Torah
Damesek Eliezer, chairman of
the IRCSI, reminded the
audience that today was the first
day of the Jewish month of Av,
marking the traditional nine days
of mourning for the destruction
of the Second Temple and other
tragedies which have befallen the
Jewish people.
Another registered agent for the
Libyan government who also
reports to Shahati is Billy Carter,
the President's brother. Billy
Carter arranged for Shahati to
appear on the ABC television
Good Morning America program.
Shadyac and Billy Carter have
attended social events with
Shahati here.
Billy Carter registered last
week with the Justice Depart-
ment as an agent for the Libyan
government after the Depart-
ment filed papers in Federal
District Court charging that he
had violated the Foreign Agents
Registration Act by failing to
report services that he had
rendered to the Libyan govern-
ment since 1978. Carter
reportedly admitted receiving
more than $'200,000 in payment,
two all-expense paid trips in
September 1979, as well as four
gold bracelets, a saddle worth
more than 92,000, a serving
platter, a suit of clothes and a
ceremonial sword.

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Fndy.July25,
Begin Still Rambunctious
His war of words with Egypt's President Sadat
won't stop him or, rather, should we say that
Sadat's war of words with him won't stop Prime
Minister Begin's resolve. Neither, apparently, will
his heart attack.
The Prime Minister is set on moving his office
to East Jerusalem. And so are several other
ministries, according to their own announcements
this week.
Using the time-honored diplomatic tactic of
pressure and intimidation, U.S. Ambassador to
Israel Samuel Lewis has already declared that he
will refuse to call on the Prime Minister in his new
quarters. We would like to cringe with fear in order
to oblige him.
But neither Ambassador Lewis nor the VS.
must presume that the 56 American Jewish leaders
who signed their name to a document that expresses
their opposition to Mr. Begin's policies concerning
East Jerusalem, the West Bank and settlements
there speak for anyone other than themselves.
ZOA Chief Makes Sense
We join with Ivan J. Novick, president of the
Zionist Organization of America, who has declared:
"If public opinion has a growing doubt about
Israel's commitment to peace, if it has difficulty in
understanding the dangers posed by a separate
Palestinian state, and if the link between Israel's
security needs and the issue of settlements is not
understood, we cannot blame it only on Arab
propaganda.
"I question Jewish leaders (the 56 who signed
the statement) who charge American Jews for being
'too emotional' ... I will not apologize to certain
sensitive Jews who believe that it is unbecoming
if my Christian neighbors see the extent of my
emotionalism because of my love for the Jewish
people and concern for its future."
So spoke Novick of the meaning of Jerusalem
to Israel and to us all. So spoke he of settlements
and our nation's creeping embrace of the Palestinian
cause.
Too Long in Coming
In our view, Prime Minister Begin's move has
been too long in coming. It should have been made
in June, 1967, when Jerusalem was finally unified.
We live in a period of American history where
emotionalism brought to political action moves
mountains.
Witness the illegal Cuban refugee influx, now
resumed against stated Carter Administration
rulings that the influx must cease that Cubans
must wait their turn along with everyone else who
wants to come to the United States.
Witness the nightly arrival of countless
Haitians. Witness the Black community, whose
leaders do not disown the few leaders of violent
dissent that unsettles an entire city.
All, all of them are emotional. Are a people with
ties to Jerusalem three and more thousand years old
to be no less so? Is their cause merely to be the
object of repeated intimidation, now crowned by
Ambassador Lewis' threat in the name of the
United States that he will refuse to call on Prime
Minister Begin should the Prime Minister move his
quarters to East Jerusalem?
More, a good deal more of this kind of Jewish
commitment typified by Prime Minister Begin's
resolve is needed if the growing anti-Israel tide is to
be stemmed.

Carter Good or Bad for Jews?
IS IT good or bad for the
Jews? This rhetorical bit of
speculation is time-honored. It is
also filled with a kind of bitter
humor best illustrated by the
proposed debate on the elephant
and the Jewish question. At the
same instant that it deals with so
grave an issue as the survival of
an ancient people, it is also self-
derisive.
It puts into proper focus the
fractional proportion of Jews to
the rest of mankind, and it
wonders, all silently of course,
whether the answer, yes or now,
is in the end important.
Jews have had to be cynical
about the possibility of their
survival if they were at all serious
about the need to survive, no
matter what the cost or the
circumstance. Really, the odds
are against them; and so, humor
is a formidable force in the ar-
senal of their millenial self-
defense. It is the secret behind
their eternal beating of the odds.
I AM brought to this
speculation by the Democratic
national convention in August
now that the Republicans have
had their own and nominated
Ronald Reagan. Is it good or bad
for the Jews? not that Gov.
Reagan has been nominated, but
that Jimmy Carter will most
likely be nominated, too.
The answer comes in the form
of a dull ache made even .*

Three of the men who want to
be elected President in November
seem to have experienced a
"born-again-Christian" phase in
their lives.
Jimmy Carter, who still finds
time to teach Sunday School, has
made it clear from the early days
of his political career that he is
proud to be a Southern Baptist
and a bom again Christian.
RONALD REAGAN'a father
was an "Irish-American
Catholic," his mother was a
member of the Christian Church,
the candidate himself says he
made a conscious decision to
accept Christ when baptized in
the Church of Christ as a young
boy, and now attends a
Presbyterian church in Bel Air
Calif.
John B. Anderson waa brought
up in the Evangelical Free
Church of America and is
reported to have had a conversion
experience when only 9.
None of this trio of presidential
aspirants has had as much
trouble about walking the high
wire separating church and state
as John F. Kennedy had in 1960.
But Mr. Anderson has been
embarrassed about the haunting
fact that in 1981. 1963, and 1965,
he indicated support for a con-
stitutional amendment
proclaiming that this nation
"devoutly recognizes the
authority and law of Jesus
Christ, Saviour and Ruler of
nations, through whom are
bestowed the blessings of
Almighty God."
JOHN ANDERSON wishes
with all his might now that he
escaped getting caught on that
flypaper. Some congressmen still
call him "Saint John the
Righteous." and he continues to
say that "God is my campaign
manager." But he had forth-
"ghtly declared that his
religion, that of the Evangelical
Free Church of America, has
increasingly become a very
private thing, nor is he trying to
create the image that religion is
consuming him and is a part of
his campaign.
Abe Lincoln, with courage and
dignity, gave perhaps the best
presidential campaign answer to
pietistic snoopers who came to
him pressing their own religious
preferences on him.
Lincoln said he lacked
allegiance to any specific creed
but would unite gladly with that
Church which assented to the
substance of the law declaring
"Thou shah love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart and aJJ
ttay soul and all thy mind, and
thy neighbor as thyself," a
Deuteronomic and Levitical
pledge which sent his inquisitors

Reagan Raps Carter
Foul-Up at UNations
ft*:*

Lili Kaufmann Named
To National Committee
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
DETROIT (JTA) Republican Party
presidential nominee Ronald Reagan charged, in his
acceptance speech, that the Carter Administration
"handed a major propaganda victory" to Israel's
enemies by its foul-up in the anti-Israel resolution
adopted by the United Nations Security Council last
Mar. 1.
In the prepared text of the speech, Reagan said, in a
caustic reference to President Carter and the resolution
which the President repudiated two days after the U.S.
voted in its favor:
"AN ANNAPOLIS graduate may be at the helm of
the Ship of State, but the ship has no rudder. Critical
decisions are made at times almost in Marx Brothers
fashion, but who can laugh?
"Who was not embarrassed when the Administra-
tion handed a major propaganda victory to the enemies
of Israel, our staunch Middle East ally for three decades,
and then claimed that the American vote was a
mistake,' the result of a 'failure of communications' be-
tween the President, his Secretary of State and his UN
Ambassador? Who does not feel a growing sense of
unease as our allies, facing repeated instances of an
amateurish and confused administration, reluctantly
conclude that America is unwilling or unable to fulfill its
obligations as leader of the free world?"
Lili Kaufmann has accepted a
position of the National Com-
mittee on Leadership
Development of the Council of
Jewish Federations.
Mrs. Kaufmann explained the
National Committee's purpose as
providing emerging, intermediate
and advanced community leaders
an opportunity to further their
understanding of the organized
Jewish community via enchanced
content and leadership skills
development.
She plans to work closely with
Tampa's Jewish communal
leaders who are active in the
Tampa Jewish Federation
Leadership Development
program.
Mrs. Kaufmann has served as
co-chairman of the Tampa Jewish
Federation Leadership
Development group one;
Division co-chairman of the
Women's Campaign; member,
Women's Division Campaign
Cabinet and the Leadership
Development Cabinet. She is a

To Iraq Not
Dangerous
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
French Ambassador Marc
Bonnefous has sought to assure
worried Israelis that the supply
of nuclear reactors and enriched
uranium by France to Iraq would
not lead to the development of an
Iraqi atomic bomb. He said in a
television interview that Paris
had received "adequate bilateral
and international guarantees" on
this matter.
Bonnefous was interviewed at
his Jaffa residence as hundreds of
Israeli and diplomatic guests
mingled in the garden for the
Bastille Day celebration. The
"boycott" of the event an-
nounced by Transport Minister
Haim Landau did not catch on.
DEPUTY PRIME Minister
Yigael Yadin and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir were
there for the government and
Labor Party chairman Shimon
Peres for the opposition. All of
them said they distinguished
between the French people and
the principles embodied in
Bastille Day on the one hand, and
the policy of the present French
government on the other.
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin, home from the hospital,
termed the uranium supply to
Iraq "very serious." Israel TV
said the Prime Minister would
convene a top-level consultation
at his home to decide what ac-
tions Israel could take to counter
the supply. Peres asserted that a
determined and well organized
Israeli political campaign against
the supply could yet have fruitful
effects.
'Annie Get Your Gun'
"Annie Get Your Gun," Irving Berlin's famous Broadway
musical, presented by the Tampa Community Players in
residence at the Jewish Community Center, Tampa, will
conclude its Tampa run this Saturday and Sunday, July 26 and
27.
The play premiered May 16, 1946, and exceeded everyone's
expectations. It became the only long-running show of the
season (1,147 performances), as well as Irving Berlin's most
successful score. This is the show that transformed Ethel
Merman from a singer into a major stage personality.
This Wild West classic of musical theater contains many
popular hits, including: "The Girl That I Marry," "Moonshine
Lullaby," "I Got the Sun in the Morning" and "There's No
Business Like Show Business."
The Saturday performance begins at 8:15 p.m., and the
Sunday performance is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased

56 U.S. Jews Rap Begin Gov't;
Endorse Peace Now Movement
By GIL SEDAN i
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Fifty-six prominent
American Jews issued a
statement here calling for
"peace and security
through territorial com-
promise on the West
Bank" and warning
against "extremists in the
public and within the
(Israeli) government,
guided by religious and
secular chauvinism, who
distort Zionism and
threaten its realization."
The statement, a sharp
criticism of the territorial policies
of Prime Minister Menachem
Begin's government and the
philosophy behind them, en-
dorsed the position of the Peace
Now Movement and was seen as
an indicator of strong support
among American Jewish leaders
for the movement.
THREE OF the signatories are
past chairmen of the Conference
of Presidents of Major American ,
Jewish Organizations. They are I
Rabbi Joachim Prinz (1965-67).
Rabbi Alexander Schindler (1976-
78), and Theodore Mann (1978-
30). Mann's term expired July 1.
The Conference of Presidents,
with a constituency of more than
30 national Jewish organizations
in the U.S., speaks for American
Jews on matters of concern to
them, particularly the well-being
of Israel and U.S. Middle East
policy.
Prof. Leonard Fein, of
Brandeis University in Waltham,
Mass., one of the organizers of
the petition, told a press con-

issue refer to this article on 56

ference here that all of the
signatories were well-known as
strong supporters of Israel. He
made it clear that the group drew
a distinction between support for
Israel, which is unequivocal, and
support for Begin government
policies with which they
disagreed.
"WE ARE trying to make a
clear distinction between Israel
and certain policies of Israel,"
Fein said. Participants at the
press conference said they felt
they expressed a widespread
feeling among American Jews.
They said they had the im-
pression that the majority of
American Jews attending the
annual Jewish Agency Assembly
now in session here would agree
with their statement.
According to Fein, many of
those who signed are par-
ticipating in the assembly.
Others who were approached said
they could not sign because of the
positions they hold.
One of these was Max Fisher,
chairman of the Jewish Agency
Board of Governors. Fisher
declined to tell the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency whether or
not he would sign but told the
petitioners later that he would
not because of his position.
MANY OF the signatories of
the statement issued here also
signed an advertisement sup-
porting .the Peace Now
Movement which appeared in
English-language Jewish
periodicals throughout the U.S.
on June 15. The latest petition
was published under the heading
Our Way is Not Theirs." the
slogan first used by Peace Now.
The statement warned against
extremists in the public and
within the government, guided be
religious and secular chauvinism,
who distort Zionism and threaten
its realization," saying that
"they advance the vicious cyle of
extremism and violence, which
nurture each other.'
The statement continued:
"Their way endangers and
isolates Israel, undermining the
ethical basis for our claims to a
life of peace and security. Their
way leads to divisions within the
Jewish people, alienates friends
of Israel, and strengthens the
extremists among our enemies.
Their way undermines consensus
within Israel over the reasons for
fighting and dying. Theirs is the
way of obtuseness and violence.
Their way leads to a dead end.
"IN ISRAEL the Jewish
people has sought to guarantee
its physical survival, to build a
sovereign Jewish society, and to
create a spiritual center for the
Jewish people. Peace is necessary
for the full realization of this
dream. Our way is the way of
peace and security through
territorial compromise on the
West Bank.
"Our way is the way of co-
existence and of tolerance. Our
way seeks to unite the Jewish
people around its Jewish and
humanist heritage. At this time,
all those whose way is our way
must stand up and be counted.
We must build a wall to block
violence and must return to
mainstream Zionism."

Bread Rises 110 Percent
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The price of bread went up
Monday by an average of 110
percent, with the government
cutting its subsidy for this
product considerably. The large
increase was held off for many
months, due to the opposition of
Prime Minister Menachem .
Begin, who was against the price I
hike of such a basic food product
which is used mainly by low
income and large families.
It is the first time in nine
months that the price of bread
was raised which in terms of

meant a considerable loss to the

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian
of Tampa:
I would like to express some of
my feelings in connection with
the statement by Howard
Squadron, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
Jewish Organizations.
The 56 American Jews had a
right to express their opinion.
Unfortunately, their statement is
one-sided.
All of us were very excited
about Sadat's initiative and we
all had hope for a lasting peace.
Only a small minority felt ap-
prehensive that giving back
everything to Sadat and too soon
is not necessarily a wise move.
Regrettably, now the facts are
supporting their position. Since
the Camp David agreement, all
the giving is done by Israel, and
Egypt is benefiting without
giving anything in return.
The 56 prominent intellectual
American Jews are complaining
about.Begin and Israel's politics.
It would be more appropriate and
effective for them to press Sadat
and Egypt to fulfill their commit-
ments.
Too many American Jews are
too eager to criticize their own
and are much too tolerant to
others.
The world places too many
demands on Israel. Let our
American Jewish leaders express
their views without subjecting
Israel to further public political
pressures.
JUDITH N. PRESSMAN
4110 San Juan Street
Tampa
EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian
of Tampa:
Howard Squadron. new
chairman of the Conference of the
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, has every
right to deplore the statement of
the 56 American Jews who criti-
cized policy of the Begin govern-
ment. It is possible that as the
president he has less leeway than
some of those who signed. It is
significant, however, that the
signers were not the "intel-
lectuals" that so often have been
associated with some of the peace
movements in Israel such as
"Peace Now." but the acknow-
ledged leaders of the American
Jewish community who have
been in the forefront of fund
raising activities in behalf of
Israel as well as other areas of
leadership. It is particularly sig-
nificant that Ted Mann, the out
going president, was a signer of
the statement. It was his fin
statement since leaving that
office.
In fact, when one looks at the
people who signed the statement
he sees that they are the rream of'
the responsible American Jewish
leadership. The fact that
Squadron has the right to
deplore" the letter does not
necessarily mean that he j.
correct.
The fact is that the letter was
not a "broadside" against the
Begin government. It was i
responsible written statement
which took to task the policy of
continued settlements under the
Dresent circumstances, nd
specifically singled out the Gush
Emunim who brazenly ignore the
policies even of the Begin
government in their quest to
settle in the West Bank.
No one is calling for Israel to
let down her security defenses,
but Israel cannot continue to
establish-settlements in the West
Bank without security reasons at
this time. Some of the leading
military people in the Israeli
armed forces have affirmed that
many of these outposts in the
West area are not necessary for
security.
No one disputes that
historically Israel may have the
right to settle any part of what
the present government calls
Judea and Samaria. But to
exercise that historic right at this
time of sensitive negotiations
does not help Israel along the
path to peace.
It is true that the PLO and
other terrorist organizations will
be unimpressed by any sign of
restraint on the part of Israel, but
Israel's friends, including the
Jews of the United States, are
concerned about such matters. It
is not our enemies that concern
us with their reactions; it is our
friends, and our friends start with
ourselves.
One may respectfully disagree
with the people who signed the
statement, but one cannot deny
their love of Israel, their concern
for its security and their record of
willingness to put their lives in
service of Israel. In short, one
cannot diamiss. as Howard
Squadron has done, a group that
looks like a Who's Who of
responsible American Jewish
leadership. Those people who
criticize policies of the present
Israeli regime are not doing it in
order to give Sadat an advan-
tage, as your editorial states.
They are doing it out of the love
of EreU Yisrael and Am Yisrael
(the land of Israel and the people
of Israel). They have served
Israel well in the past and they
are serving her no less well in the
present by stating their honest
position on these matters.

Mitla Passes, there is no need
Sadat feels to talk with the
Israelis about peace until after
the November election is decided.
The plain fact is that Sadat
understand that Mr. Carter at
this moment is more a political
candidate than President of the
United States. As such, he is
hardly likely to pressure the
Israelis at a summit. Since it is
pressure he is interested in, not
peace, why should he bother?
Carter, whose Middle East
diplomacy is predicated as much
on his zealous Christianity as it is
on petroleum, never hesitated
from the beginning to bring to
the region all the wit and
sagacity of an Iranian Ayatollah.
From the beginning, he has
been a New Testamentarian
whose preachments about the
Jews ineluctably draw him more
readily to Ishmael than to Jacob.
The Camp David accords, Mr.
Carter's greatest achievement in
office, are twisted by that bigoted
inclination.
NOW THAT Sadat has begun
to drop his disguise, now that he
is openly acting according to the
vile gospel he preached in his
1978 Autobiography, it is clear
that President Carter finds
himself, restrained by the ex-
pediency of a national election
campaign, unable to embrace the
real Sadat; although that is
precisely what he would like to
do.
The President is ready to
swallow it all: the tearing away of
the West Bank, the amputation
of Gaza, the ousting of a Jewish
political presence in Jerusalem.
But he can't not now.
Mr. Carter's policies have been
offensive enough to Jews, at least
to thinking Jews. But to do what
the Egyptian leader has done,
finally to drop the last remnants
of his own disguise, to embrace
the real Sadat, he must wait until
after November. These days,
instead he must show us the
multitude of his teeth. He must
offer us his soporific, saccharine
sermons, his Brotherhood Week
homilies on Israel. He must make
schizophrenics of us all,
recounting the achievements of
his presidency in the script of
Camp David at the same time
that we are forced to suffer the
bankruptcy of their failures.
AFTER NOVEMBER, when
H#*lection is no longer an issue,
when he no longer has to
scrounge for votes, watch out.
After November, he and Sadat
will have their way with the Jews
the intransigent Jews, about
whom Mr. Carter's New
Testament has even more vile
things to say than that they are
intransigent. After November, it
will be Ishmael triumphant.
President Sadat apart, after
November, when it is too late,
will begin the replaying of the
1972 Watergate script, with Mr.
Carter's subterranean con-
nections to Araby emerging as

TAGIN Crowns Daggers
By RABBI THEODORE BROD
The word Tagin is Aramaic; in Hebrew it is called
Kiturim. These are decorative Crowns which are placed on
seven of the 22 letters of the Alphabet in the Torah, Tefillin
and Mezuzah (Menuchot 29).
The Taga is compose of three flourishes or strokes, each
stroke resembles a small letter ( f ) Zayin. The word Zayin in
Hebrew means a dagger. The Scribe (Sofer) places it on the
upper left hand corner of the letter on the points (ends of the
upper horizontal bar). The stroke is thick on top with a thin
line extending downward to the letter. The center stroke is
higher than the two end strokes. The seven letters which
generally recive the T
tgir-mw
Also the finals. Nun and Tzadi receive Tagin (Menuchot 29th).
The Torah is the Divine Blueprint for the good life. The
constitution of Judaism has been built on the Torah the
interpretations of its concepts, values and laws, through the
Talmud and Reaponsa literature. From generation to
generation, we must retain and strengthen the basic values and
interpret them for the contemporary scene in light of historical
circumstances. The center of everything Jewish being the
synagogue.
The Jewish sanctuary was the temple in Jerusalem,
ministered by a hereditary class of Kohanim and Levitea;
animal sacrifice was the form of worship. After 586 B.C., when
the First Temple was destroyed and the Jewish leaders were
carried into Babylonian exile, the ancient form of worship could
no longer be used. Only in Jerusalem could the temple be
rebuilt, but the city was now under the rule of the conqueror
who would not allow rebuilding.
In order to assure the continuity of the faith, the Jewish
community in Babylonia would gather together in the House of
Assembly (in Greek, Synagogue) and would listen to a lesson
from the Torah. Thus the synagogue became the survival
vehicle. Later in our history, the synagogue became also a
house of worship taking the place of eacrifices.
The thrust of religion is to provide answers to the ultimate
questions of humanity so that all people can be brought
together as children of the common Creator. It is through
dedication and commitment of individuals in their synagogues
that the corporate aspects of our living and decision-making
ro guided towards the creative life.
When one is called up to make the blessings over a portion
{the Torah that is read on Mondays, Thursdays, Shabbat and
Holidays, he cannot but notice the Crowns (Tagin) on the
etters of the Torah. What are they and why did the Sofer
'Scribe) place it on specific letters?
According to tradition, there existed a book called "Sefer
HaTagin" which described the strokes on the letters which
wero placed on the 12 stones that Joshua set up in the Jordan
g laur erected in Gilga (Joihua 4:9-20). We have a Baraita
which relates the history of the "Safer HaTagin."
The book waa found by the high priest Eli (1100 B.C.E.)
*ho gave it to the Prophet Samuel, who gave it to Palti, the
son of Laish, to Achitophel, to Prophet Elijah, to Elisha, to ine
Prophets and Jehoida the Priest, who placed it in a casket and
buried it under the threshold of the temple. During the Baby-
lonian exile, it was brought to Babylon by the prophet Ezekiel
(586 B.C.E.).
When King Cyrus gave permission to return to their
homeland, Ezra the Scribe brought the book back with him to
Jerusalem. It finally was handed down from Rabbi Akiba to
Rab (235 C.E.).
In the Talmud (Sotah 20b), the Taga is mentioned as a
requirement on the letter Dalit. The Vitry Machzor of Rabbi
Simcha (1208 C.E.), a disciple of Rahi, copied the "Sefer Ha-
Tagin." The scribes were scrupulous in maintaining the form of
the letters as revealed to Moses, inasmuch as they feared any
change.
Torah written by a scribe who omits the Tagin becomes
Pusil (Invalid) -Magen- Avruhum to Shulchun (Aroch 36:3).
Maimonides disagrees and does not invalidate the Torah Scroll.
He considers the Tagin as a decoration, a beautiful fulfillment
of the Mitzvah of writing a Torah (Yad-Sefer Torah 7:9).
However, Ashkenazi Jews do not agree with Maimonides, they
hold that a Torah Scroll without Tagin is Pusil (Invalid).
The Kabbalah places great significant mysticism on the
meanings of the Tagin. It is a teaching of the great secrets and
mysteries of the universe. When combining the letters with the
Tagin, one can form the Divine Name by which heaven and
earth were created. It is not only the creative power but the
revelation of future events. Hillel the Elder warned against
using the Tagin in everyday writing of other books.
"He who makes a common use of the Taga (Crown) of the
Torah shall waste away, because one who uses the Shem Ha-
Meforash (Tegragrammaton) has no share in the world to
come." (Aboth 4:7). He probably aimed these words at the
Essenes who were using the Tagin in their books in-
discriminately.
Another explanation of the Tagin is that they are "Ittur
Soferim" (decorations of the scribes). The intention being to
decorate and ornament the Torah with "crowns." At one time,
all the letters of the Hebrew alphabet had Tagin. In the last
300 years, the Tagin have been omitted on the remaining
letters and remain only on the seven letters mentioned. (Orah
Chayim 36:3)
From old Machzorim, books which not only contained the
prayers and hymns for various Holy Days but frequently gave
the text of the entire Torah, we can see how the Tagin were
placed on the letters at that time, noting the variations made
by the scribes.
In conclusion, may I leave you with this thought:
An Israelite that had done wrong is still an Israelite
(Sanhedrin 44a). The word Yisroel (Israelite) is an acronym for
the Hebrew words, "Yesh Shishim Ribooy Oysios Latorah."
(There are 600,000 letters in the Torah.) A Torah that is
missing even one letter cannot be used until it is repaired. The
sanctity of the entire Jewish people depends upon each in-
dividual. Yet if one has sinned he still remains a member of our
Jewish heritage.
SHABBAT SHOLOM
Lance's old bank in Georgia, Mr.
Carter's preferential loan
treatment in that bank, his
brother's role as a foreign agent
for Libya, whose rank and
widely-publicized anti-Semitic
remarks are tempered by the
I'l.O rationale that he is not anti-
Semitic, only anti-Zionist.
Not to mention the most recent
outrage, the appointment of
Richard Shadyac. a Washington
Arab of Lebanese descent, as
head of the Arab American drive
in behalf of the reelection of the
Carter-Mondale ticket. Shadyac.
it just so happens, is a foreign
agent for Libya, just like Billy
Carter himself.
At least in this respect, even if
one discounts all those pretty
words Gov. Reagan said about
Israel at the GOP convention in
Detroit, the question. Is it Kood
or bad for the Jews?, must be
answered affirmatively so far as
the Reagan candidacy is con-
cerned.
I SAID in the beginning that
there will be no difference bet-
ween the two so far as Israel is
concerned once the campaign is
over. But there is an exception,
and it is one of degree. In the
event the Governor is elected he
will want to be reelected in 1984,
given thai his age is still not a
major issue; and if it is, his object
will be to name and elect his
successor.
Reckoned in these terms, he
will perforce be less brutal about
pressuring Israel into an endless
series of concessions that can
only lead to her extermination.
There will be reason for Gov.
Reagan to go slower in the same
direction.
President Carter will suffer no
such restraints, especially if the
Araby connection in his personal
life does not catch up with him. If
it does, then things will be even
worse than before.
IMPOSSIBLE? Perhaps. Still,
when Adolf Hitler announced the
program of his political agenda in
Mein Kampf. everyone said
impossible. When Anwar Sadat
did the same, including his
admiration for the Hitler agenda
which he incorporated into his
Autobiography and his own
master plan, he was invited and
welcomed to Jerusalem with
incredible pomp, given that his
master plan is a new "Final
Solution" for the Zionist
question.
President Carter has written
nothing of this extensive order
yet, except secret memos to his
inner circle demanding that they
sign loyalty oaths to him the
real reason behind the Cyrus
Vance resignation. And the more
recent resignation by Hodding
Carter, who refused to participate
in such dictatorial shenanigans.
Once he has the Jewish vote,
why is it the impossible that such
a man, such a master at
dissimulation and disguise, will
refrain from slitting the Jewish
throat?
Terrorists
Arrested
TEL AVIV Security forces
have arrested five Israeli Arabs
from the western Galilee village
of Makkar on suspicion of
membership in a terrorist
organization responsible for acts
of sabotage and bombings during
the last four years. The arrests,
made last week, were disclosed
here. The case is one of the few in
which Israeli Arabs ware in-
volved in establishing a terrorist
cell.
According to security sources,
the group's activities included
planting bombs in Acre in 1977,
planting bombs in a Nahariya
supermarket, in Karmiel, in
Haifa and in a bus near Acre
during 1977 and 1978, causing

B'nai B'rith Women Protest Court Rule
B'nai B'rith Women has expressed indignation
over the Supreme Court June 30 ruling on
Medicaid-financed abortions and sent a national
alert to directors of its 16 regions in the United
States to initiate action on this issue.
"The Supreme Court ruling is clearly a giant
step backwards in equalizing the status of
women," BBW President Grace Day said, "It
place in jeopardy the health and welfare of a
large segment of our population.
"As Americans and as women, we at B'nai
B'rith Women want to express our indignation
over the Supreme Court ruling," Day said.
"While proponents will allege that it is not anti-
abortion per se, the fact that it will affect poor
women only should alert us that a devious tactic
has indeed been used to deny abortion to those
who cannot afford it."
A team of scientists at the Hadassah-Hebrew
University Medical Center has found that hard-
to-treat multiple allergies can be cured by a drug
that is commonly used for the relief of migraine
headaches.
The drug, proxibarbal, is a non-sedative
barbiturate. It acts by inducing enzymes which
destroy the allergenic mediators, histamine and
serotonin. The scientists, Prof. Felix Gad Sulman
and Dr. Moshe B. Goldgraber, had noticed that
migraine patients receiving this drug reported
that their allergies subsided along with their
headaches.
The drug was administered to 30 patients
suffering from multiple allergies based on
sensitivity to cow's milk, dairy products, meats,
eggs, fish, pollen, house dust, molds, feathers,
wool, hair dyes and drugs. For 22 of the 30
patients, allergic symptoms disappeared or were
considerably alleviated, with no side effects.
Previous treatment by the traditional desen-
sitization method had been unsuccessful.
Dr. Harry M. Orlinsky, professor-emeritus of
Bible at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute
of Religion, is the new president of the American
Academy for Jewish Research.
He is the ilmt member of the Hebrew Union
College faculty to head the 50-year-old academy,
which is regarded as the foremost organization in
the United States whose members are engaged in
advanced Jewish scholarship.
Dr. Orlinsky succeeds Dr. Salo W. Baron,
professor emeritus of history at Columbia
University, as president of the academy.
One of the world's leading authorities on the
Bible and biblical translation, Dr. Orlinsky has
been a member of the Hebrew Union College
faculty since 1944. He is a former president of
the Society of Biblical Literature.
A promising new system for producing animal
feed and useful chemicals from microalgae grown
in sewage is being explored by scientists at Bar-
Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel.
The experimental project uses sunshine as its
main energy source rather than electricity, as
most other systems do. After extracting the
chemicals, which have traditionally been
manufactured from petroleum through costly
processes, the residue has been found to be very
rich in protein that can be used in place of soya
bean and fish meal for animal feeding purposes.
According to Dr. Zvy Dubinsky, who heads
the project, the new system in which algal
culture does not compete with conventional
agriculture for water and fertilizer "may be
economically competitive with other land uses in
hot, arid countries. In addition, it can prove to
be an important way for Israel and other
countries to save currency now being spent on
imported animal feed."
Jacob Laib Talmon, professor of modern
history at Hebrew University, and one of the
world'8 leading historians has died in Jerusalem
after an illnesss. He was 64.
Prof. Talmon's major field was totalitarian
ideology. A leading European journal recently
listed Prof. Talmon among the 20 leading
historians of this century.
Born in Poland June 14, 1916, Prof. Talmon
came to Israel in 1934. He was educated at the
Hebrew University, the Sorbonne and the
London School of Economics. A much sought
after teacher, Prof. Talmon was a visitng fellow
at St. Anthony's, St. Catherine's and Wolfson
Colleges at Oxford and the Institute for
Advanced Study.
In response to the critical shortage of qualified
personnel in the area of geriatric nursing care in

nursing in September as part of the new million-
dollar Emunah Women of American Community
College in Baka, Jerusalem
The Sally and Alta Solomon School for
Geriatric Nursing, the first institution of its kind
in Israel, will help fill the current void in the area
of geriatric health services in Israel and open up
greater opportunities for professional ad-
vancement for young women from culturally
deprived and economically disadvantaged
backgrounds. The school is being established in
conjunction with Shaare Zedek Hospital, where
students will do held work and practice in-
ternships.

Kissinger Backlash i
Jewish GOP'ers Support
Continued from Page 1
Gerald Ford would not be his
running mate and that Bush
would Reagan said of his erst-
while primaries rival that Bush
can support the platform across
the board."
IN HIS campaign for the
presidential nomination, Bush
had expressed strong support for
Israels security, but he would
not advocate moving the U.S.
Embassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem. The GOP platform
says. "Republicans believe
Jerusalem should remain an
undivided city with continued
free and unimpeded access to all
holy places by people of all
faiths."
Bush, who was a presidential
hopeful during the Republican
primaries but who was defeated,
made it clear during his bid that
he was a staunch friend of Israel.
In one of his strongest
statements on the issue, he told
some 40 Jewish leaders at a
meeting sponsored by the
American Jewish Committee last
October that Israel must be kept
strong and its security must
never be traded for oil.
Bush, a former Ambassador to
the United Nations, also said he
continued to believe that the U.S.
has "special relations" with
Israel. He also affirmed that he
opposes any negotiations with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, claiming that the
U.S. credibility as an ally would
diminish if it reversed its position
on the PLO.
AN INDICATION of the
Republican leadership's close
attention to Jewish voters,
primarily in the crucial New York
State elections, was evidenced by
the selection of New York State
National Committeeman Richard
Rosenbaum of Rochester to be
the first of 12 delegates who
spoke as seconders of Reagan's
nomination.
Officials of the American-Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC). who were active at the
Republican convention and will
be also at the Democratic con-
vention in New York next
month, said their survey showed
that the 1,994 delegates at the
GOP convention here, 93, close to
five percent, were Jewish.
In interviews with Jewish
delegates by the JTA, who were
available after Reagan's selection
of Bush, most comments
welcomed the GOP team. In
general, many had backed Rep.
Jack Kemp of New York.
According to sources that
closely followed the convention's
nuances, a major reason for the
collapse at the last-minute of
Reagan's effort to have Ford as
his running mate was Ford's
insistence that if the Reagan-
Ford ticket won, Henry Kissinger
would again be Secretary of
State.
REAGAN, fully aware of the
intense opposition to Kissinger in
the GOP's far right-wing, led by
I Sen. Jesse Helms of North
Carolina, felt he could not accept
Ford's condition for joining hian.
Reagan was quoted as saying, "I
cannot barter away the
1 presidency."
Many Jewish delegates had
also strongly supported Ford
even though in his ad*
ministration in 1976, with
Kissinger as Secretary of State,
the U.S. threatened a
"reassessment" of its support of)
Israel at a time when it felt Israel
jwas not being "flexible" in
I Washington's effort for an Arab-
Israeli settlement.

Foreign Minister Genscher
the Conference of Presidents, had
with Begin late last week in the
Prime Minister's home.
During the meeting, Squadron
said, "the Prime Minister
repeated his deep commitment to

elements that are essential to
reaching such an agreement."
He said Begin was recovering
physically and was "vigorous
and alert in our conversation."
PARIS Former Syrian
Premier and one of the Baath's
historic leaders, Salah Bitar, was
shot dead early this week in the
heart of Paris. A lone gunman
shot him in the back of the neck
as he was entering his office.
Bitar's killing took place only
three days after a PLO com-
mando tried to murder former
Iranian Premier Shapur
Bakhtiar, killing one French
policeman and a woman neighbor
in the process.
The 68-year-old Bitar was shot
in the neck as he was putting his
key into his Paris office a few
hundred yards off the Arch of
Triumph. The killer walked away
and got lost in the lunch-time
crowd.
Bitar had founded the Syrian
Baath Party together with
Michel Aflakin 1942.
NEW YORK Grigory
Geishis, 20, of Leningrad, was
arrested last week on charges of
draft evasion, it was reported
here by the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) and by
the Union of Councils for Soviet
Jews (UCSJ) in Waltham, Mass.
Two other young Jews, Boris
Kalendarov and Igor Korchnoi,
are currently serving two-year
sentences on similar charges, the
two organizations reported.
Geishis will be held in prison "as
a measure of restraint" until hi
trial, scheduled to take place in
two months.
Geishis, who was expelled from
the Communications Institute in
Leningrad on the day he applied
for an exit visa to Israel in
October, 1978, was refused per-
mission to emigrate because of
his mother's alleged access to
classified information.
He told the draft board that he
cannot serve in the Soviet army
because he wants to leave the
country. He also said that con-
scription would make him privy
to "state secrets" and would
prevent him from emigrating to
Israel.
NEW YORK Funeral
services were held Tuesday for
Hans Joachim Morgenthau,
teacher, author and one of this
nation's leading experts on inter-
national relations. He died Satur-
day at 76.
In recent years, Dr. Morgen-
thau was active in the Soviet
Jewry movement and in op-
position to American policy in
the Middle East. He was chair-
man of the Academic Committee
on Soviet Jewry where he had
campaigned for the release of
Anatoly Sharansky and other
Jewish activists and Soviet dis-
sidents in the USSR.
Born in Coburg, Germany on
Feb. 17,1904, he received degrees
from the Universities of Munich
and Frankfurt. He was admitted
to the Bar in Germany in 1927
and practiced law for three years.
TEL AVIV Israelis are
upset by the International
Amateur Wrestling Federation's
acceptance of a Palestinian team
"Falastin" as a non-
national associate eligible to
compete in the Moscow Olympic
Games.
But they are divided over
whether an Israeli presence in
Moscow might have blocked
recognition of the Palestinians.
Labor MK Orah Namir, who
heads the Knesset's Sports Com-
mittee, observed that Palestine
Liberation Organization Chief
Yasir Arafat is paying an official
visit to the Olympic Village in
Moscow only eight years after
PLO terrorists massacred the
Israeli team at the Munich
Olympics.
Charging that the world has
forgotten the horrors of the
Munich Massacre, Namir an-
nounced that she would convene
her committee to consider
possible Israeli reactions to the
recognition of the Palestinian
wrestlers.

TEL AVIV The Jasmin, the
first Israeli freighter to call at an
Egyptian port, docked at
Alexandria Friday to discharge
four containers, two of them with
general cargo and the others with
fresh apples and apricots. Her
arrival marked the beginning of a
bi-weekly cargo service between
Israel and Egypt operated by the

The event created no stir in
Alexandria, although it was sym-
bolic of the normalization of
relations between Israel and
Egypt which, many Israelis com-
plain, is proceeding too slowly.
Israel freighters have been
passing through the Suez Canal
for the past year, but none with
cargo for Egypt. The Jasmin tied
up between two Egyptian
freighters, the Cleopatra and the
Emir Fahed.

Bill to Legalize Homosexuality
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Cabinet will vote next week
on a bill which would legalize
homosexuality between adults
by free choice.
Justice Minister Shmuel Tamir
submitted the bill to the
Cabinet's weekly session Sunday.
The vote was postponed due to
objections raised by Interior
Minister Dr. Yosef Burg.
UNDER THE bill, the existing
law which declares homo-
sexuality a criminal offense,
would be abolished. That law was
enacted in Mandatory times,
stating that sexual relations be-
tween men are a criminal offense
which can be punished with up to
10 years imprisonment sentence.
However, this sanction has not
been exercised since the 1960's
following a ruling by the High
Court of Justice which in effect
nullified the law.
The new bill legalizes homo-
sexuality regarding sexual
relations between adults and
only if both parties have agreed
to engage in such relations.
FORCED homosexual
relations, as well as relations with
children and youth, would be
considered rape under the new
bill.
Tamir explained the need for
such legislation in that there was
no justification at this day and
age for the State to interfere in
affairs which are solely a matter
between individuals.
The new bill met stiff op-
position by Interior Minister Dr.
Yosef Burg, who argued that if
passed, "Israel would become a
world center for homosexuals."

Prime Minister has indicated on
several occasions that he would
like to address the Egyptian
Parliament to explain Israel's
political positions. His visit has
failed to materialize because of
repeated Egyptian delays in
extending the invitation. Sadat
said several months ago that he
would not advise Begin to come
to Cairo because it would "cause
anti-Israel feelings in the
Egyptian public."
! SADAT EXPANDED his
views on Jerusalem in the Yediot
Achronot interview. He favored a
unified city with a single mayor,
either Jewish or Arab, heading
one municipal government. He
proposed municipal autonomy for
East Jerusalem where an Arab
flag would be raised over the
town hall. He said Israeli flags

Mi inwhile, Israeli political
and security circles alleged that
Egypt has recently adopted
extreme positions with respect to
implementing the peace treaty
and has, in effect, taken stands
that are contrary to its
aggrements with Israel. Those
views were reported in Haaretz
Friday.
SOURCES AT the Prime
Minister's Office said, however,
that it was too early to tell
whether there has been a definite
deterioration in relations with
Cairo. They said Israel was
keeping a close watch on Egypt's
implementation of its agreements
with Israel.
The sources decline to com-
ment on Sadat's latest interview.
They said they did not know of
any specific plan for Sadat to vist

invitation to him still stands.
