In Wake of Bombing
March to Protest French Terrorism
By EDWARD EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Tens of thousands of
jews marched for the third consecutive day to
protest the bomb attack on a Paris synagogue
last Friday night in which three people were
killed and 33 were injured. It was the worst
anti-Semitic attack since the end of the war
and the first to have caused fatalities. It
capped a series of anti-Semitic attacks last
weekend for which a neo-Nazi group, the
European National Fascists, claimed
responsibility.
Tens of thousands of non-Jews, trade
unionists, students and politicians
representing the .entire spectrum of France's
political and social life, joined the Jewish
demonstrators. The outpouring of solidarity
and the universal rage over the attack
prompted many observers to note that the
French Jewish community has never been as
strong as it is now and the anti-Semitic and
neo-Nazi groups as small and as isolated.
President Valery Giscard d'Estaing has
personally taken over the police investigation
and Prime Minister Raymond Barre and
Interior Minister Christian Bonnet have
ordered special units of France's riot police to
guard all Jewish schools, synagogues and
institutions. Police guards armed with
machineguns are conducting an around-the-
clock patrol near all Jewish institutions and in

words he spoke within minutes following
the bombing of a Paris synagogue last
Friday night, another bomb explosion
rocked Paris Sunday as French police
continued their search among right-wing
militants for those responsible.
AN ANONYMOUS telephone caller
claimed responsibility for the blast in a
message to the French news agency,
Agence France Presse, declaring the
explosion to be the work of the
Revolutionary Nationalist Movement,
the extreme-rightist group whose leader
was one of 13 persons arrested following
the Friday night explosion.

According to police here, a Dutch attack upon a Moroccan Jew cut by a

for wearing a skull cap. Meanwhile, 50

French synagogue was defaced with
graffiti and swastikas painted on its
walls during the night.

CBS Snubs Proposed Dialogue;
Miller too Busy to Get Involved
Sinwne Veil
Ham's Poll
Israel Viewed
By ROCHELLE WOLK
NEW YORK (JTA) -
CBS-TV network officials
and playwright Arthur
Miller said that they would
turn down a request from
two Auschwitz-Birkenau
survivors for time to air a
dialogue between them and
Miller, author of the tele-
vision drama, Playing for
Time, which was broadcast
on the CBS network last
week.
The survivors are Marc
Berkowitz of New York City.
N.Y., and Alex Dekel of New
York City, both in their late
forties. As children, they were
business areas, such as the textile center,
where there are large Jewish concentrations.
Jewish defense groups, some belonging to
the Jewish Defense Organization and some
self-improvised, are also standing guard over
Jewish schools, synagogues and other in-
stitutions throughout the country.
Everywhere in Paris and in major French
provincial cities young Jews, some carrying
walkie-talkies and steel bars, are guarding
institutions and entire city areas. They stop
suspicious-looking cars and frisk passersby
and motorists. Others say they plan to "seek
revenge" for the synagogue bombing.
JEWISH ANGER is so in-
tense that Jewish demonstrators
tried to storm the Presidential
residence, the Elysee Palace, and
the Ministry of Interior, and
came close to clashing with
French riot police. Tourists or
passersby who seemed to con-
form to the image of neo-Nazis
those with short-cropped hair and
wearing conservative dark suits
were harassed or beaten up.
Some were seen fleeing, with
blood over their faces.
Simone Veil, president of the
European Parliament, who was a
former government minister,
marched in one of the demon-
strations. She was surrounded by
an angry crowd which reproached
her for "supporting the gover-
nment." It took riot police close
to 20 minutes to extricate her and
her two companions, philosopher
Bernard Henri-Levy and artist
Marek Halter, and escort them to
safety.
All along the Champs Elysee,
in the Place d'Opera and in the
vicinity of the Presidential
Palace, hundreds of demon-
strators waved Israeli flags
throughout the day and late into
the night, with people shouting
"Israel shall live," and "Death to
the Nazis." The demonstrators
and almost the entire French
Jewish leadership blamed the
government, Giscard d'Estaing,
Barre and Bonnet for Friday
night's tragedy.
THE GOVERNMENT has
promised Chief Rabbi Jacob
Kaplan and Baron Alain de
Rothschild, president of the
Representative Council of Jewish
Organizations In France (CRIF),
that 200 police cars and three full
companies of riot police a total
of some 600 police will hen-
ceforth be assigned to special

Josef Mengele's medical ex-

"deceptions" and "dangerous
fictionalizing" in Miller's version
of the story of Fania Fenelon, a

Bab-El-Waad is the opening on
the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Road, the
old Jaffa Road. At this point the
high mountains around
Jerusalem suddenly become the
rolling hills that gradually slope
to the coastline at Tel Aviv and
the ancient city of Jaffa At Bab-
El-Waad is located the remains of
a building once used as a guest
house centuries before the
current road existed At one time
the journey from Jaffa to
Jerusalem took two days on foot
or horseback. Travelers along the
trail would make an overnight
stop at the guest house before
continuing through the moun-
tains to Jerusalem, or through
the hills to Jaffa.

The Lod-Ramlin area was
formerly the center of Arab
rationalism prior to 194* In the
1948 War for Independence, the
area was taken in a lightning
attack led by Moshe Dayan. The
capturing of this valley was
important not only because of its
location in the center of the
country, but also because in cap
turing the area, the strong Arab
nationalism there was dissipated.

tina, etc. All individuals assigned
to this center are unmarried and
live here for approximately five
months. The mornings at the
center are spent in Hebrew study,
while the afternoons are spent
studying tha Israeli culture.

year at the University of South
Florida. Performances are
scheduled for Oct. 23-25 and Oct.
29 Nov. 1 in the University
Theatre.
"Spokesong," a play with
music by Irish writer Stewart
Parker, premiered at the Dublin
Theatre Festival. It was
produced in America at the Long
Wharf Theatre in New Haven
and off-Broadway at the Circle in
the Square.
The play centers around Frank
Stock, the owner of a bicycle shop
which was started in Belfast by
his grandfather. Stock sees the
bicycle as a humanizing factor in
a world filled with machinery
designed to de-humanize. He sees
cars as deadly in a very literal
sense they are hiding places
for bombs, they explode. The
Belfast City Council, however,
does not agree. They plan to run
a major road right through
Frank's bicycle shop unless it
is destroyed first by IRA bombs.
There is also a love triangle
between Frank, a very outspoken
young woman nam*-u Daisy and
Julian. Frank's adopted brother,
a cynic to whom the past is
meaningless.
The original music for
"Spokesong" was written by
Jimmy Kennedy, who has
written such famous lyrics as
"Red Sails in the Sunset." "The
Isle of Capri" and "South of the
Border."
The USF production is
directed by Jack Belt. The
costumes are designed by
Margaret Hall, and the scenic
designer is William A. Lorenzen.

France as Poseur
For the first time in a long time, the very fabric
of French civilization is under scrutiny because it is
being torn apart by the forces of neo-Nazi terrorism
against the Jewish community.
At issue is not so much that the terrorism is
occurring as that the French establishment is so
passive in response to it. Indeed, there are charges
that neo-Nazi elements exist within the official in-
stitutions of the state, and that these elements are
the very source of what seems to be the indifferent
manner in which the establishment is moving to meet
the challenge to France as a democratic society.
For a country that purports to judge the rest of
the world by its sometimes astigmatic view of its
own civilizational achievements, and that never
wearies of waving the flag of liberte, egalite,
fraternite, the history of bigotry in France in general,
and anti-Semitism in particular, is frightening.
The current wave of anti-Semitic outrages
recalls the Dreyfuss affair and the fight of Emile Zola
to force the French to examine themselves
realistically.
Then there was the more than enthusiastic level
of collaboration between French police and the Nazis
against the Jewish community during World War II.
At one point, in 1942, French police happily rounded
up thousands of Jewish children in Paris to be
shipped off to concentration camps an act neither
requested by nor supported by official Nazi orders.
There is no doubt that the current wave of out-
rages is the result of the French government's
similarly enthusiastic anti-Israel policy formulated
since the days of le grand Charles.
If France indeed expects the world to continue
accepting the abstract notion of the grandiose
quality of French kultur on its face, then it must
institute an immediate about-face in its official at-
titudes.
Evangelicals and Jews |
Many Jews are perplexed over how to consider
Evangelical Christians, particularly those who are
now so vocal on right-wing issues. Their call for a
"Christian America'* threatens the Constitutional
guarantee of separation of church and state a
necessity for a pluralistic democratic society which
has permitted the American Jewish community to
flourish. Yet their position on "moral" issues such as
abortion, homosexuality and the Equal Rights
Amendment, while opposed by the majority of the
Jewish community, are not so different from that
espoused by Orthodox Jews.
At the same time, the Evangelicals are the very
Christians who support the drive to convert Jews to
Christianity. Orthodox Jews and Jews living in small
towns are the ones most upset by these activities.
But we have still another anomaly. Evangelical
Christians are among the most ardent supporters of
Israel, partly for religious reasons, since it is an
element of their doctrine that Jews must be in control
of Israel before there can be the Second Coming. The
Rev. Jerry Falwell, head of the Moral Majority,
supports Israel, including its settlement policies on
the West Bank.
This support was dramatictJly shown recently
when Evangelical Christians from 20 countries
dedicated a "Christian Embassy" in Jerusalem. It
was established as a reply to the withdrawal of the 13
embassies from Jerusalem in the wake of the
Jerusalem law.
Perhaps the response to Evangelicals by Jews
should be to act towards them as they act toward us:
join with them when there are grounds for agreement
and oppose them vigorously on the issues where we
differ.

Old Teachings Plague Us Agaii
I HAD been talking about
World War II as one of those rare
wars in history in which human
values were at stake. I began
with Marathon, the successful
Greek battle against a Persian
invasion in 490 BCE. a campaign
that chroniclers love to define as
the first known struggle in the
cause of democracy.
One student said that he had
registered recently because he
was 19, but that if called upon in
a draft, he would not serve. What
did World War II achieve, he
asked, to justify my claim that
human values depended upon its
outcome?
HIS ARGUMENT went some-
thing like this: In that war, our
enemies almost immediately
became our allies; while our
allies, notably Russia, just as
quickly became the enemy.
Look, he urged me, at Europe
today. He pointed to the bom-
bing of a synagogue in Paris last
Friday night as symbolic of the
recrudescence of European anti-
Semitism. He emphasized the
EEC's new "peace initiative" in
the Middle East predicated on
selfish oil needs and the willing-
ness to see Israel destroyed as
the price of satisfying its greed.
In return, I said that World
War II had not been fought
either to destroy anti-Semitism
or to establish a Jewish nation in
Palestine. These, I said, were
merely ancillary and un-
fortunately only temporary by-
products of the war.
BUT I could not deny his
charge that the John Wayne
idealism that sparked the *, J

deny that the coining draft i.;

In any ca, I warned him, if i

lessly like Socrates, he'd betu

he went, he replied, had nothii
to do with my rose-colored vi
of World War II's idealism an
the dear commercialism of th
next war. He raised the issue i,
last Friday night's bombing J
Paris a second time.
He wore a giant cross of goll

asked him why the Paris bom-
bing obsessed him. Surely. I said]
he was not Jewish.
I HOPED for an outburst
along the lines that being Jewish
had nothing to do with his ang
reaction that so contemptibli
thing as the bombing of a synal
gogue had occurred, indeed, witlf
the fact that anti-Semitism is
revolting thing.
Instead, he snickered. His tone
was clear: how could I be .

about the bombing and antiJ
Semitism, feeling assured that i
a consequence I would be syii

World War II and his decision,

Two Chief Rabbis Under Heavy Fire
Friday, October 10,1980
Volume 2
30TISHRI6741
TWO chief rabbis have
come under heavy fire from
various non-religious and legal
sources for their alleged in
terference with the judicial
process in the broadening in-
vestigation of Religious Affairs
Minister Aharon Abu Hatzeira
and senior officials of his
ministry who have been accused
of financial misconduct. They
were also rebuked, indirectly, by
Justice Minister Moshe Nissim,
himself an Orthodox Jew.
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren and Sephardic
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef raised
the storm of protest when each
asserted, in separate press in-
terviews last week, that the
institution of state's evidence
was contrary to halacha, Jewish
religious law. Their statements
were seen as an attempt to
prevent a key prosecution wit-
ness, Deputy Mayor Yisrael
Gottlieb of Bnei Brak, from
testifying against Moshe Gabbai,
a top aide to Abu Hatzeira who
was arrested last week and
remanded in custody by a Tel
Aviv district court.
GOTTLIEB had agreed to
testify for the State in order to
avoid possible criminal
proceedings against himself He
was quoted by one newspaper as
saying that "If the rabbis say I
mustn't talk then I won't talk."
But other newspapers reported
that he has refused to commit
David
"-^-^aa.
Landau
Goren andYosef have rejected
the charge of deliberate meddling
in the case. They insisted that
they were duty-bound to
pronounce the halachic position
when reporters asked them about
it. They are strongly backed by
the national Religious Party of
which Abu Hatzeira is a member
and which, allegedly, received
misappropriated funds.
The most significant, albeit
oblique attack on the chief
rabbis, was delivered by Nissim.
An official statement released
before Yom Kippur by the
Justice Minister's office noted,
"The Minister takes a serious
view of any public statement that
could have the effect of in-
fluencing the course of a police
investigation or the consideration
of the prosecutor The
decision whether to make use of a
state's witness must be taken
solely on the merits ... and
without interference by ex-
traneous officials or other par-
ties," especially when "such
interference comes in the midst of
an investigation."
THE STATEMENT noted
that the device of the .'.
sparingly in Israel since ihe|
inception of the State.
In New York last week, Rabbi]
Roland Gittelson. president of]
ARZA-Association of Keform
Zionists of America, released a|
statement demanding a thorough
investigation of the Abu Hatzeira
affair and accused the two chief
rabbis of a "shameful at-
tempt ... to block the judicial
process through the cynical
application of halachic
minutiae." Gittelsohn observed.
"When Jewish law is misused to
shield people in high places and
to protect the vested interests of
Israel's political-religious
establishment, the Jewish
tradition is perverted by those
who claim to be its champions."
The latest development in the
Abu Hatzeira case has intensified
the always present friction
between the secular and religious
elements in Israeli society. The
secular parties Labor, Mapam,
the Citizens Rights Movement
and others have decried the
chief rabbis' intervention with
varying degrees of intensity. The
NRP has lined up behind the
chief rabbis. Its Knesset faction
chairman, Yehuda Ben-Meir,
declared last week that the NRP
and all Orthodox Jewry backed
the right of the chief rabbis u>
speak out on halachic issues at
any time.

News in Brief
Former Nazi Wagner Kills Self
RIO DE JANEIRO A
former Nazi officer, accused of
complicity in the murder of
250,000 Jews and Poles at the
Sobibor extermination camp in
occupied Poland in 1942-43, com-
mitted suicide last Friday night
at his home in the town of
Atibaia, about 50 miles from Sao
Paulo.
Gustav Franz Wagner had
emigrated to Brazil in 1950 and
lived quietly under his own name
until Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesen-
thal identified him from a news-
paper photograph taken at a
birthday party for Hitler near Rio
de Janeiro in 1978.
Israel, West Germany, Poland
and Austria sought to extradite
the 69-year-old former officer in
SS elite guard. Wagner turned
himself in in 1979 after federal
police announced that they
wanted him in connection with
extradition requests but the
Supreme Court rejected the
extradition requests on the
grounds that the statute of
limitations on war crimes had
expired.
Wagner, who denied taking
part in the extermination of the
camp inmates, told Brazilian
officials, "I only obeyed orders."
Officials said he tried to commit
suicide four times since he was
discovered living in Atibaia.
WASHINGTON Dis
cussions will be resumed "for-
mally" on West Bank-Gaza
autonomy starting on an un-
specified date next week in
Washington, the State Depart-
ment said. The announcement
appeared to contradict official
Egyptian reports that the talks
will be resumed here Oct. 14.
TEL AVIV Police investi-
gating the booby-trap explosion
that killed three people and
injured six in the Givatayim post
office here believe it may have
been the result of a criminal ven-
detta even though the Palestine
Liberation Organization claimed
that "Palestinian warriors" were
responsible.
Funeral services were held
Monday for two postal clerks,
Aharon Amiga, 53, and Avraham
Joseph, 54, who were killed when
a parcel containing a wired hand
grenade exploded, wrecking part
of the post office. Amiga was the
father of nine children and
Joseph the father of eight. The
third fatality was a woman whose
name has not been released.
JERUSALEM Prime
Minister Menachem Begin has
given his approval to the return
from exile of two West Bank
mayors to allow them to appeal
against their expulsion, a
military spokesman announced
here.
The two mayors, Mouhamad
Milhem of Halhoul and Fahed
Kawasme of Hebron, were
deported last May after Pales-
tinian terrorists killed six Jewish
yeshiva students in Hebron. The
Israeli authorities charged the
two banished mayors with incite-
ment against the Jewish State.
According to the announce-
ment, Begin's decision opens the
way for the two mayors to appear
before a special military appeals
to&nl. The Supreme Court
recently criticized the govern-
nnt for refusing to let the two
{"yore appeal to the military
ooaro prior to their expulsion.

ment in the aftermath of Friday's
fatal bombing of a synagogue in
Paris and the rash of rightwing
terror in France, West Germany
and Italy.
Galinski charged that the
French authorities were too soft
in dealing with anti-Semitism. He
has been warning for some time
against right-wing and left-wing
terrorism in Europe. West Ger-
man police have uncovered
terrorist plots against him and
other Jewish leaders.
NEW YORK Independent
Presidential candidate John
Anderson has blamed the series
of attacks on the French Jewish
community, which culminated in
the bomb blast outside a Paris
synagogue Friday night, on "in-
difference" to bigotry and hatred.
Anderson, in a statement
issued by his Washington cam-
paign headquarters to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, said that he
and his Vice Presidential running
mate, Patrick Lucey, "are sad-
dened and angered by the recent
spate of terrorist activities
directed at the Jewish com-
munity of France."
While extending his con-
dolences to the victims and their
friends, Anderson stressed that
"beyond the sadness lies a sense
of anger at the intolerance,
viciousness and evil that pro-
duces such events and at the
indifference with which such
events are all too often greeted."
WASHINGTON Repub-
lican Presidential candidate
Ronald Reagan rejected the
statement by one of his leading
supporters, fundamentalist
Baptist minister Jerry Falwell,
that only the prayers of
Christians are answered by God.
But the GOP standard-bearer
first denied that Falwell had
made the statement.
The incident took place in
Lynchburg, Va., last weekend
where Reagan delivered a
political speech at Falwell's
Liberty Baptist Church. He told
eporters later that he did not
lgree with Falwell's view "since
ooth the Christian and Judaic
religions are based on the same
God the God of Moses."
He added, "I'm quite sure
those (Jewish) prayers are heard.
But then I guess everyone can
make his own interpretation of
the Bible and many individuals
have been making differing inter-
pretations for a long time."
PHILADELPHIA The de-
naturalization trial of Wolodymir
Osidach has been adjourned until
Oct. 15 due to his hospitalization
with chest pains. The 76-year-old
Osidach, who is accused of con-
cealing his collaboration with
Nazi forces occupying the
Ukraine in order to enter this
country and obtain citizenship,
has had a history of heart
problems.
Before the trial adjourned last
week in Federal District Court
here, the prosecution had com-
pleted its case which included
eye-witness testimony on
Osidach's role as police chief in
the Ukrainian village of Rawa
Ruska.
The defense, which opened its
case Sept. 25, maintains that
Ukrainian police were only
responsible for keeping order in
the non-Jewish part of Rawa
Ruska.
"Iask the question.Who is the architect of
the peace treaty between E&rot and
Israel?And the answer is, the President
of the United States, Mr. Jimmy Carter."
-Prime Minister Menachem Begin
Some people have forgotten.

security measures for the Jewish
community. But the Jewish
community and many govern-
ment opposition leaders feel,
however, that these measures are
too little and too late.
The country seems to be in a
state of shock and there is a
nationwide demand for speedy
and energetic action. The feeling
jf solidarity with the Jewish
community is such that France's
two major trade unions, the CGT
and CFDT, called for a
nationwide strike Tuesday as a
gesture of solidarity with
France's Jews. Work in factories,
offices and public transportation
will come to a standstill for two
hours.
Representatives of all social
classes and political parties
voiced support of former Prime
Minister Michel Debre's
statement: "No one can or will
forget what took place in Paris
Friday night." Newspapers
carried front page headlines.
"Abominable," declared France-
Soir. "The Assassins are Among
Us," thundered Quotidien de
Paris.
TWO DAYS after the bomb
explosion, Rue Copernic, where
the Reform Rue Copernic Temple
is located, looks as if it had been
the target of an air raid attack.
Bumed out cars litter the streets;
buildings in a 100-meter area are
wrecked, their windows shattered
and their walls blackened by
smoke. Local residents say that a
day after the bombing they could
still smell the stench of smoke
and burned bodies.
The Reform synagogue,
located in one of Paris' most
fashionable residential areas, was
filled with worshippers who came
to attend both the Sabbath
services and Simhat Torah
services. At 6:20 p.m., the
worshippers suddenly heard a
blast. The synagogue's front gate
was blown off, the ceilings caved
in, and the windows were
shattered. Only a handful of
people inside were injured. Most
suffered slight wounds from glass
shards and wood splinters.
The synagogue's rabbis, Dr.
Michael Williams, an English-
man, asked them to remain calm
and to remain indoors. Later he
said that he feared a possible
ambush outside the synagogue
and wanted to send someone out
to reconnoiter the area. On the
street, eyewitnesses said they
first saw a 20-meter high flame
leap into the air. Immediately
afterwards they heard the blast
and saw cars lifted into the air by
the force of the blast, windows
shatter and flames spreading all
over the street.
THE JANITOR of an adjacent
building said, "Within seconds I
could see dead bodies lying
around and other people burning
in their cars." One of the dead
was identified as Aliza Shagrir,
42, an Israeli film editor who was
in Paris for a two-week holiday
with her 17-year-old son. She was
walking to the home of a friend to
meet her husband when the bomb
exploded. She died on the way to
the hospital.
A 14-year-old girl driving a
moped had the skin of her face
peeled off. An elderly woman had
her legs severed. Most of the
other dead and injured were
either passing by the synagogue
or milling outside.
Within minutes of the attack, a
crowd gathered at the scene.
Jews from all over Paris who had
heard the news on the radio
arrived at the synagogue to join
the worshippers. Bonnet, who
arrived on the scene shortly after
the blast, drew the wrath of the
crowd. People shouted, "Shame,"
"Resign." A press photographer
shouted at Bonnet, "My mother
died in a concentration camp, and
now the same thing happens
here." Rabbi Williams shook hit
fist and cried out, "Shame on
France and on all Frenchmen.
Shame on you. Shame for what
happened."
SEVERAL PEOPLE wept
openly as Bonnet pledged, "This
thing will not repeat itself. I
swear it to you." He also ap-
pealed to the Jewish community
to keep calm: "I feel tonight like
a young Jew, and I can imagine
what you are going through. This
is why I beseech you not to give
in to violence and not to reply in
kind. Trust the government and
the legal authorities," he begged.
The principal Jewish leaders
were also at the scene. Rothschild
was on the verge of tears. He
appealed directly to Giscard
d'Estaing to take "the ex-
traordinary measures needed."
He warned that Jewish youth will
have to guarantee the com-
munity's security themselves.
But directly after the blast
tempers were so high that both
Rothschild and Jewish elder
statesman Jean Pierre-Bloch
appealed for calm.
x
Bloch, a former minister and
prominent resistance fighter is
known as an "activist." His son,
Gaullist Deputy Jean-Pierre, is
reputed to be the head of the
Jewish Defense Organization. On
Friday night, they and Chief
Rabbi Kaplan, pleaded for calm.
"Let us not start a cycle of blind

when the Sephardic community
rallied behind Abu Hatzeira,
charging that he was being
scapegoated by the Ashkenazic
establishment which dominates
Israeli politics. Sephardic Jews
outnumber Ashkenazim in
Israel's ethnic mix but feel they
are under-represented in political
affairs.
Abu Hatzeira is of Moroccan
origin and his father, Rabbi
spiritual leader of Moroccan
Jewry. About 1000 supporters of
the Religious Affairs Minister
paraded in Jerusalem today
carrying the Minister on then*

flowers and singing traditional
songs. They angrily charged that

the press and that the entire
matter reflected the anti-
Moroccan attitude of the
authorities.
violence," they said.
IN SPITE of those pleas,
demonstrations began late
Friday night at the Etoile. The
crowds marched down the
Champs Elysee. Israeli flags
appeared by the hundreds. In the
Jewish Quarter, other Jewish
youths gathered. They could be
heard complaining about police
laxity and incompetence. Small
defense squads were formed. The
first cars that tried to enter the
area early Saturday morning
were stopped by the new Jewish
defenders, their passengers were
scrutinized and their trunks were
inspected.
A group of Jewish youths
drove to a disco, "Bus
Palladium,'1 reputedly a meeting
place for rightwing activists, but
found the police waiting for them.
Saturday morning began with
a huge meeting at the synagogue
itself. Over 10,000 people were
massed there. Ms. Veil, herself an
Auschwitz survivor, appeared
shaken. Francois Mitterrand, the
Socialist Party leader and
probable contender for the
presidency next spring, showed
up accompanied by most of his
senior advisers. The Israeli
Ambassador sat in the front row.
FROM THE synagogue the
crowd marched again to the
Etoile and from there to the
Champs Elysee toward the
Presidential Palace and the
Interior Ministry. The crowd
grew rapidly and as many more
continued to join the demon-
strators, police had a difficult
time preventing the marchers
from approaching the govern-
ment building.
Three young people were
allowed through the police cordon
and met with one of Giscard
d'Estaing's aides who told them
that "the President is deeply
moved. He has given orders that
everything should be done to
apprehend the criminals."
Outside the government
building people screamed and
pushed. Ms. Veil, who marched
with the crowd from the
synagogue, was harangued and
insulted. Fights broke out
continuously. Passersby
suspected of being rightwingers
were punched and pummeled. A
man, mistaken for neo-Nazi
leader Marc Fredriksen, was
beaten up. It turned out that he
was a Norwegian tourist who
spoke no French.
MEANWHILE, French police
have begun to implement
government orders to protect
Jewish institutions. Riot police
equipped with machineguns are
stationed in front of every
synagogue in Paris. In
Strasbourg, the street on which
the synagogue is located has been
cleared of all vehicular traffic and
all parked cars have been towed
away. At the same time, hun-
dreds of detectives are going
through the files of rightwing
organizations.
Hundreds of people have been
arrested since Friday night and
have had their homes searched.
However, according to police, no
clues have been found as to the
identity of those responsible for
the synagogue bombing.
The police department's trade
union secretary held an im-
promptu press conference
yesterday and disclosed that one-
fifth of the members of the
outlawed neo-Nazi organization.

the Iranians, they said.
According to the experts, Iraq
had been preparing for the war
for many months, militarily and
politically. Baghdad moved to
improve its relations not only
with the Soviet Union which had
deteriorated since the Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan, but also
with the Western-oriented Arab
states, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
They said Iraq has three goals
in its war on Iran: to acquire
supremacy in the Persian Gulf
area; to depose the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini; and to take
over the Arab-populated, oil-rich
area of Khuzistan southern Iran.
That would give Iraq full
control over the Shatt el Arab,
the waterway formed by the
confluence of the Tigris and
Euphrates rivers, easy access to
the Persian Gulf and a sub-
stantial increase in its oil
producing capacity. The
Khuzistan fields have a potential
of five million barrels a day.

Alignment said Israel's dilemma
was how to cause the fall of the
Khomeini regime and yet
promote an Iranian victory that
would prevent the strengthening
of Iraq. Amit said Israel should

consider possible moves in that
direction.
Yehuda Ben Meir, of the
National Religious Party, also
spoke of possible Israeli
initiatives toward the resumption
of relations with Iran. He said
Israel was a natural source of
assistance to Iran since it could
supply that country with spare
parts and other equipment of
American manufacture which are
still in use by the Iranian army.
Yosef Rom of Likud said
"Israel's first interest was its
own security and therefore any
action in that direction is
positive." However, Rom was not
sure that arms sales to Iran were
feasible under present cir-
cumstances or whether the
Khomeini regime was interested.
Former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban of the Labor Alignment
said the Iraqi-Iranian war gave
Israel the opportunity to point
out to the world that the Arab-
Israeli conflict is not responsible
for turmoil in the Middle East.
"IF ISRAEL ceased to exist,
the Soviet troops would not with-
draw from Afghanistan,
Khomeini would not release the
American hostages. Iraq would
not stop the war, and the price of
oU would not drop one penny,"
Eban said.
Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres stressed that Israel must
not become involved in the
Persian Gulf war. He said the war
could change the map of the
Middle East and touch off a new
arms race in the area.

Harris Poll
Public Opinion Views Israel More Favorably Today
Continued from Page 1
and that they regard the
Egyptian-Israeli peace
process, with U.S. partici-
pation, "as beacons of hope
in the Middle East."
The poll, which probed at-
titudes on virtually every aspect
of the Middle East situation, wa9
conducted last July among a
1,506 cross-section of the
American adult public and a
separate 1,030 cross-section of
Jewish adults nationwide. All the
respondents were interviewed in
person.
THE SURVEY was un
dertaken for Edgar Bronfman
chairman of the Seagram Co.
Ltd., who is acting chairman ol
the World Jewish Congress. The
results were made available to
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
The 106-page survey, with 46
tables, revealed many am-
biguities, with majorities sup-
porting certain propositions but
also supporting others that rai
counter to them.
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin remained a controversial
figure. Certain of his policies are
criticized, but he is given high
marks for his contributions to the
peace process and, to some extent
benefits in public opinion from
the heavily negative attitudes
toward such other Middle East
figures as the Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini of Iran and Palestine
Liberation Organization chief
Yaair Arafat.
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt is the best known and
most highly regarded of Arab
leaders among all Americans.
President Carter is in deep
trouble with Americans for his
overall performance but is given
a slightly better though still
negative rating on the job he had
done in handling the Middle East
crisis. Among Jews, Carter is
given an 88-10 percent overall
negative job rating and a 59-39
percent negative mark for his
work for peace in the region.
ACCORDING to the survey,
the shift in public attitudes
toward Israel in a positive
direction is due in part to such
relatively recent events as the
seizure of American hostages by
Iran and the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan. In 1976, a 74-12
percent majority viewed Israel in
a positive light. In 1980, an 81-12
percent majority shared that
view.
Among non-Jews, a 56-33
percent majority said they would
be "very upset" if Israel were
overrun by Arabs in another war
compared to a 50-36 percent
majority in 1976 and a 44-37
percent majority who felt that
way in 1975.
"Underlying the results of this
survey," the Harris organization
said, "is a deep sense of urgency
that peace can be found between
the Israelis and Arabs in the
region. There is a strong sense
that outisde the gates of the
traditional and long-standing
Arab-Israeli conflict are larger
enemies in the region who would
be the direct beneficiaries of
another Arab-Israeli war."
THE POLL showed a 75-15
percent majority in favor of the
U.S. sending planes, tanks,
artillery and other weapons to
Israel, up from a 66-23 percent
majority in 1976. A substantial
76 percent of the public believes
Israel is "very much dependent
on the U.S. for military aid
today." But "when put in ex-
treme terms, 'if the government
of Israel should become so un-
bending that the chance for peace
in the Middle East grows much
worse,' a 44-37 percent plurality
feels 'the U.S. should threaten to
withhold economic and military
aid to the Israelis.' "
According to the survey,
however. "When asked if such
withholding of economic and
military aid 'meant the Arabs
would have military superiority
in the case of another war,' then
by 50-25 percent most Americans
would oppose such a withholding
of aid."
Polled on another aspect of the
support issue, a 63-19 percent
majority opposed the proposition
that the withdrawal of military
support for Israel should be a
trade-off for Arab oil at lower
prices. "It is evident throughout
the survey that the Arab cause
has been done much damage in
this country by the believed link
between oil price increases and
continued U.S. support for
Israel," the Harris report said.
THE POLL showed "areas of
reservation and dissatisfaction
with Israel and its current
leaders." By 48-38. percent, the
public thinks that "Israel seems
to feel the U.S. will back them, no
matter what they do." By 44-42
percent, it feels that "Israel if
friendly to the U.S. mainly
because it wants our military
supplies." But a much higher, 61-
26 percent majority, felt that way
four years ago.
A 44-28 percent majority
agrees with the charge that
"Israel is wrong to think that the
Jewish lobby in the U.S. is so
powerful that it can keep them
from making the compromises
necessary to achieve peace."
Harris reported that "It is
significant that the cross-section
of American Jews rejected this
charge only by a very narrow 41-
39 percent. Jews with incomes of
$35,OOO-$50,OO0 agree with the
charge by 48-36 percent, and
those with incomes of $50,000
and over agree with it by 52-30
percent."
The poll reported that a 67-17
percent majority of the public
rejects the claim that "Israel
thinks it can control the U.S.
Congress" and a 72-13 percent
majority dismisses the
proposition that Israel does not
belong in the Middle East. A 55-
23 percent majority rejected the
view that "Israel should give
back all the territory it gained
from the war of 1967," up from a
49-25 percent majority who felt
that way in 1976.
"VASTLY outweighing these
annoyances with Israel is a whole
set of positive views about
Israel," Harris reported. An 86-8
percent majority thinks that
"Israel is a small, courageous,
the West Bank to let the
Palestinians have a homeland,
Israel makes peace impossible ir.
the Middle East." That view had
a 32-30 percent plurality in 1976.
On the other hand, a 40-26
percent majority believes that "If
the West Bank becomes an in-
dependent Palestinian state,
other extremist Arab states such
as Syria, Libya and Iraq would
use it as a launching pad to
destroy Israel."
But Americans, by a 71-12
percent majority, agree that
"The Palestinian people are now
homeless and deserve their own
independent state, just as much
as the Jews deserved their own
homeland after World War II."
By 72-11 percent, Americans
agree "there must be a way to
guarantee Israel's security and
also give the Palestinians an
independent state on the West
Bank."
Of the respondents, 56-16
percent felt that Israel ought to
agree to a Palestinian state on
the West Bank if it can be
assured of security from attack.
"Jews reject this proposition by
only a very close 41-39 percent,"
Harris reported.
ON THE issue of Jerusalem, a
52-26 percent majority of the
public and a 72-14 percent
majority of Jews oppose "placing
Jerusalem under international
control." A 52-22 percent
majority of the public and an 82-7
percent majority of Jews oppose
"giving East Jerusalem back to
Arab control."
But a 63-17 percent majority of
the public and a 66-21 percent
majority of Jews favor
"establishing a new system of
government for Jerusalem, under
which Israelis would have control
of Jerusalem but with the
governing body of the Holy City
being made up equally of a
Jewish borough which would
elect representatives of the
Jewish section and an Arab
borough which would elect
representatives of the Arab
section, with citizens of each
section and Christians, Arabs
and Jews having access to all
parts of Jerusalem.
The survey showed that Israeli
leadership enjoys a majority
support of Americans but
Begin's policies "lag a full 20
points behind when compared
with backing for the State of
Israel." By 69-16 percent, the
public feels the current Israeli
leadership is reasonable about
working for peace. Among Jews,
87 percent feel that way.
NO MORE than 38 percent of
the public express a great deal of
confidence in Begin compared
with 54 percent who feel that way
about Sadat. Among Jews, 61
percent express high confidence
in Begin "although this drops to
only 42 percent among those
Jews in the highest income
brackets," Harris reported.
However, a 77-7 percent
majority of the public credits
Begin with showing at Camp
David that "he is capable of
making concessions that can lead
to a peace settlement when he
agreed to give back the Sinai to
Egypt." A 90-4 percent majority
of Jews concur in that view.
A 42-38 percent majority of the
public agreed that Begin "is right
to claim that Israel has prior
historical right to control the
West Bank since Jews lived there
in Biblical times." Baptists

IN ADDITION to other "cruel
insensitivities," they described
the characterization of Mengele
in the television play as "a farce"
and an "outrage."
"After 33 years of pain and
sorrow, we want to come out and
express what happened to us.
Seeing this opened wounds that
never will be healed," they said.
Along with the denial of air
time, CBS officials reiterated
that the network had never in-
democratic nation which is trying tended to offend the Jewish
to preserve its independence."
A 68-20 percent majority
agrees that "the Arabs are
determined to destroy Israel, so
Israel is justified in building
itself up militarily to defend
itself." By 66-13 percent,
Americans also agree that "Israel
is trying to keep from having tc
give up territory and make
concessions until it is reasonably
sure that the Arabs want to
negotiate a peace settlement."
The poll found that a 62-23
percent majority of the public
feels that "Israel is right not to
agree to sit down with the PLO
because the PLO is a terrorist
organization and wants to
destroy Israel." Nonetheless, a
66-13 percent majority of the
public and a 53-34 percent
majority of Jews feel that "if the
PLO would recognize the right of
Israel to exist instead of pledging
to destroy Israel, then they
should be able to join the peace
talks about the future of the
West Bank."
WITH RESPECT to the
Palestinian problem, the poll
reported that a 39-29 percent
majority of the public feels that
"Israel has mistreated the
Palestinian refugees and that is
wrong." up from a 36-29 percent
plurality in 1976. By 60-26
percent, most Americans feel
that "by refusing to come up
with a
community in either the casting
of the controversial Palestine
Liberation Organization sym-
pathizer, Vanessa Redgrave, in
the role of Fenelon or in the
presentation of Playing for Time.
"On the contrary, it is our
belief that this production will
make a lasting contribution that
the terrible events of the Nazi era
will not be forgotten," the CBS
official said.
A SPOKESPERSON for
Miller told the JTA that the
playwright "prefers not to get
involved or discuss the idea" of a
dialogue. "He is starting a new
project and important as the idea
is, he cannot get involved. He
doesn't have the time," the
spokesperson stated. Miller, in
the midst of rehearsals of bis new
Broadway play, said he had "no
comment" on the allegations that
Mengele's character was
distorted in Playing for Time.
Berkowitz said he watched the
television film from a hospita
bed where he is under treatment
for a neurological condition
inflicted upon him by Mengele's
medical experiments. Claiming a
lack of authenticity in the film, he
told the JTA in a telephone
interview, "Maybe this can be
done when it pertains to ancient
times. But when something is
still before your eyes like pictures
in a camera, you don't need
Berkowitz, whose arm bears
the Auschwitz tattoo number
A7738, carries a copy of a cer-
tificate signed by Mengele,
stating that he was experimented
on by the infamous death camp
doctor.
He said he obtained the
document from the Polish
government. He said that he and
his twin sister were among some
400 children, mostly twins, who
were selected for inhuman
"medical" experiments.
BERKOWITZ and his sister
were liberated from Auschwitz by
Soviet forces in December, 1944
along with five other pairs of
twins who survived. Berkowitz
described Mengele's medical
experiments section of the camp,
not referred to in the television
film, as a "human zoo."
Dekel described himself to the
JTA as "a human guinea pig for
Mengele" when he was a child in
Auschwitz. He was liberated
while on a death march from the
camp. The tattoo number B14844
is still on his arm.
According to Dekel, "Miller's
message was we're all human
beings, even Nazis, and he made
heroes out of butchers to prove headquarters in New York CM

fears he expressed about a Jewish
Jerusalem.
THE WHOLE twisted history
of Jews and early Christianity as
delineated in the most anti-
Semitic passages of the New
Testament seized me as a prin-
ciple of religious faith that, in the
name of God. it is righteous to
condemn and hate and engage in
ceaseless war upon the entire
Jewish people forever.
Suddenly there, in that class-
room, it seemed to me how vain
and absurd were all the Brother-
hood-type enterprises in which
some Jewish organizations
engage as they participate in
dialogue after dialogue with the
enemy that will never give up the
hatred and the war.
No, I said to the student, I can
not expect the church to do any-
thing about the truth.
THE FRENCH role in the
Iraq-Iran war is nauseous.
French Foreign Minister Jean
Francois-Poncet, in an address
the other week before the General
Assembly of the United Nations,
attacked Israel's policies in Jeru-
salem and on the West Bank as
"impediments to the search for a
peaceful settlement in the Middle
East."
He charged that Israel's
"attacks on Lebanon's
sovereignty and territorial in-
tegrity and on the mission and
authority of the United Nations
force in that country" are a
further danger to peace.
Said Poncet: "The friendship
that links France to Lebanon and
my country's role in UNIFIL
make this action all the more ab-
horrent to France."
THUS FRANCE, that excres
cense of arrogance on the back-
side of the European continent,

international integrity and
morality and to sway public
opinion through the filter of the
anti-Semitism that has forever
been integral to its national life.
It is an anti-Semitism in-
distinguishable from its national
religious identity. As such,
historically, France is to be
equated with Germany under the
Nazis, which adopted a religious
identity as defined by the
prophet, Adolf Hitler. Just as
there was no governmental
authority in Germany under the
Nazis to cry out against the
excesses visited upon the Jews
there, so do we hear a deafening
silence today in the official ranks
of the Quai d'Orsay as French
Jews are daily rocked by one
Fascist outrage against them
after another. And why should
there not be a deafening silence,
when the Fascists are in the very
ranks of the Quai d'Orsay itself?
Understood in these terms, we
can begin to understand the
enormity of the horror that it was
the French who first moved the
European Economic Community
into its new anti-Israel orbit,
although it is only fair to say that
the rest of Europe needed little
prodding to join in.
Now the EEC, with a French
hand on the wheel of its rearward
shot into past history, demands
Israeli territorial concession after
concession as the price for its
continued support of Israel as a
nation plus, of course, recog-
nition of the "legitimate rights"
of the Palestinian people.
WHAT THIS means in the end
is the deleifitimization of Israel
about which the French could
care less at the same time that
they preach about the inadmls-
sibility of expanding hegemony
through conquest, thus rational-
izing their repudiation of Israel
de jure.
But it remains to be seen if the
French will offer similar lectures
to the world in the case of Iraq,
its principal client for whose soul
it appears to be vying with the
Kremlin, and whose forces at the
beginning of the week were some
75 miles into Iran.
Meanwhile, with such scurvy
official attitudes encouraging
them a.-- a statement of national
French policy, the terrorist at-
tacks upon Jewish inst itutions in
France can be expected to
conl inue.
Why not at home, when France
brOM talk the world just how
wicked and immoral the Jewish
state is? And when the French
read their Bibles in the candle-
light of ancient, superstitious
mumbo-jumbo and learn just how
deceitful, treacherous and con-
temptible in the eyes of their God
the Jewish people themselves
are?
Shekel is New Currency
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
banks and the Stock Exchange
reopened last Friday after being
closed for three days to allow the
official transfer of the currency
from the Pound to the Shekel.
The Shekel, which is equal to IL
10, is worth about 17 cents in
U.S. currency.
Although Israelis were
greeting each other with shekel
tor. a switich on maze! tou.
economists do not believe the
new currency will help stem
inflation unless other strict
measures are taken.
THE INTRODUCTION of the
Shekel was announced last
February, but when the day
arrived, Israelis this week did not
appear to be ready for it. Most
had none of the new currency,
had not changed their check
books and were unsure what
financial regulations might be
imposed with the introduction of
the Shekel.
The Pound will still be ac-
cepted as currency, although 80
percent of the bank notes and 35
percent of the old coins have
already been withdrawn from
circulation. Checks made out in
Pounds will be accepted for
another 10 days without any
surcharges.

Gan this week for the extended new diamond 'Bourse.' The 12,000 sq. ft. 'Bourse' is a feature
of the enlarged 28-story twin tower Diamond exchange for some 650 diamond firms from
Israel and abroad and is said to be the world's largest single diamond trading facility.
IsraeFs major export, it is estimated that IsraeCg gem polished diamond exports in 1980 will
reach $1.5 billion. Moshe Schnttzer tcenter), president of the Israel Diamond Exchange and

Agudath Israel Supports Bilingualism
I
While supporting newly proposed federal
bilingual education regulations, the Commission
on Legislation and Civ ic Action of Agudath Israel
of America urged the U.S. education community
to recognize differences in culture as well as
language.
Testifying at hearing? convened bv the U.S.
Department of Education, \gudath Israel's
representative, Dr. Irwin Goldstein urged the
government to recognize that bilingual education
is not an automatic program for new immigrants
only, but that other groups retain their primary
language because of cultural and ethnic factors
prolonging their English language handicap.
Dr. Goldstein cited as an example the many
Yiddish-speaking youngster? in yeshivos whose
parents may have been in this country for many
years, but are still not proficient in the English
language. He said that many youngsters think as
well as speak in Yiddish, which would make them
prime candidates for bilingual education
programs, adding: "The testing of youngsters in
their native tongue should consider the language
used in thought as well as speech."
Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, president of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations, is
among seven leaders who have urged the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee to recommend
ratification of the Genocide Convention and four
other human rights convenants.
In calling for Senate passage of the con-
ventions, the religious spokesmen declared,
"Continued non-ratification prohibits the United
States from participating in some of the most
important international forums for the protecting
of human rights at a time when it is demonstrably
in the nation's interest and purpose to strengthen '
international law in the field of human rights."
The group, of which Rabbi Schindler is the only-'
Jewish representative, said that until the
covenants and the Genocide Convention are
ratified, "the United States will continue to,
remain out of compliance with the principles and i|
intent of the Helsinki Accords." The Accords will
be reviewed in Madrid this November.
Edward Kuznetaov, one of the five Russians
exchanged for two Soviet citizens convicted in
New Jersey of spying on the USSR., former
Prisoner of Conscience, and ardent Jewish
emigration activist imprisoned for his desire to
live in Israel, will address the opening night
session of Women's American ORT's 13th
national board conference in Houston, Tex., on
Oct. 20.
At the time of the exchange, Kuznetaov had
served nearly nine years of a 16-year sentence for
hie part in an aborted attempt in June, 1970 to
seize a Soviet airplane and fry to Israel.
Kutnetsov's book. Prison Diaries, was
published by Stein and Day, and he has just
completed his second book about life in a Soviet
Gulag. Kuznetaov now lives in Israel and is
actively engaged in working for the release of
three prisoners still incarcerated for their parts in
the escape attempt.
Yitzhak Hen Aharon former Histadrut
secretary general and cabinet minister will spend
the month ol October traveling iround the
country on bi half of the American Histadrut

Ben-Aharon will make a tour of the leading
University labor educatior centers and will
address and meet with faculty student? trade

11:10 a.m. Road to Haifa
We passed two prisons located
at important intersections along
the road to Haifa. These prisons
were formerly British police
stations which the British gave
to the Arabs in 1948. Therefore,
the Arabs controlled most of the
major intersections in 1948.
Also located on the road to
Haifa, the Via Mares (the road
along the sea), is the town of
Netanya. Netanya was named
after Nathan Strauss, a philan-
thropist who helped this area
develop. Netanya is located on
the sea only 13 kilometers (ap-
proximately eight miles) from the
old 1967 border with Samaria.
Benjamina is another one of
the many towns along the Via
Mares. Like many towns in this
area, it was named after one of

constitutional aims could be
attributed to his organization.
Hoffmann and his supporters
engaged in military training in an
old castle near Nuremberg.
Hoffmann was brought to trial
for illegal wearing of uniforms.
But the prosecution was un-
successful. At a second trial he
was found guilty and fined 8,000
Marks. The sum was easily
raided by the right-wing National
Zeitung, the most widely cir-
culated neo-Nazi publication in
West Germany. Eventually,
Hoffman was tried for violating
the law against possession and
use of firearms and was found
guUty.
IN 1978, the then Bavarian
Interior Minister Alfred Seidl,
said in reply to a question in the
Bavarian Parliament that his
ministry did not consider
Wehrsportsgruppe Hoffmann to
be a danger to constitutional
order and to the state. Hoffmann
and his group continued their
military exercise openly and
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) Links between the
Palestine Liberation Organization and Wehr-
sportsgruppe Hoffmann, the largest neo-Nazi
paramilitary organization in West Germany, were
reported here in Die Welt. The daily said that
West German security agencies are informed on
these contacts.
Wehrsportsgruppe Hoffmann was held respon-
sible for the bomb explosion at the Munich
Oktoberfest Sept. 26 in which 12 persons were
killed, although its leader, Karl-Heinz Hoffmann,
and five associates were released from custody for
lack of evidence. One of the 213 people injured in
the Munich outrage, a 17-year-old boy, died in the
hospital. Four others are reported to be on the
critical list.
ACCORDING to Die Welt, the paramilitary
group has a record of association with the PLO
going back several years. The paper also reported
that members of the Hoffmann group drove
German trucks to Palestinian terrorists in
Lebanon. A convoy of similar trucks driven by
neo-Nazis was seen on a highway in Bavaria
shortly after the Munich outrage.
According to Die Welt, PLO terrorists and neo-
Nazis have organized public meetings in recent
years. The National Zeitung, the largest neo-Nazi
newspaper in West Germany, published in
Munich, has consistently supported the PLO. A
neo-Nazi activist, Udo Albrecht, 40, was arrested
four years ago with PLO papers.
When apprehended, Albrecht had 80,000 Swiss
Francs in his possession and a bank withdrawal
receipt for 14,000 Francs. The German authorities
established that the money was given to him by
PLO officials for arms purchases. Albrecht was
also accused of recruiting neo-Nazi Germans for
PLO raids on Israel. He is presently in a prison
near Bonn.

began publication of a periodical,
Kommando.
The Bavarian police dismissed
their action as a "Punch and
Judy Show." The Social
Democratic opposition in Bavaria
criticized the government's
i failure to take action.
Last January, Federal Interior
Minister Gerhard Baum banned
the organization. A police raid on
, its headquarters yielded a
quantity of military materiel
including an old tank. But the
group's activities continued. A
police raid in the wake of the
Munich bombing, turned up more
miilitary equipment and ex-
plosives in member'8 homes. But,
according to the Prosecutor's
office, they were not related to
the explosion in Munich.
THE Wehrsportsgruppe
Hoffmann has a membership of
about 400, making it the largest
neo-Nazi para-military
organization in the country.
During the past few months, its
| gangs frequently clashed with
'police while trying to disrupt
demonstrations and meetings of
left-wing organizations.
Hoffmann has been accused of
seeking to destroy the democratic
'system by violence. He has
I summed up his ideology as
.follows: "We do not want the
power in the state but a powerful
state ... A democracy is im-
potent. Only a dictatorship led by
the right man can do anything for
the people."

The course will meet on two
Tuesdays a month at 8 p.m. in

they learned as children in
Religious School and now wish a
refresher course on an adult
level."
The series will touch on many
facets of twentieth century
Conservative Judaism. Jewish
history, custom, practice
literature and culture will be
discussed in their historical
perspectives and in con-
temporary terms. A reading list

USF to Present 'Spokesong'
Warfare in Belfast and an
idealistic young man who feels
threatened by modern man's so-
called progress are the subjects of
"Spokesong," Theatre USF's
first production of the 1980-81
year at the University of South
Florida. Performances are
scheduled for Oct. 23-25 and Oct.
29 Nov. 1 in the University
Theatre.
"Spokesong," a play with
music by Irish writer Stewart
Parker, premiered at the Dublin
Theatre Festival. It was
produced in America at the Long
Wharf Theatre in New Haven
and off-Broadway at the Circle in
the Square.
The play centers around Frank
Stock, the owner of a bicycle shop
which was started in Belfast by
his grandfather. Stock sees the
bicycle as a humanizing factor in
a world filled with machinery
designed to de-humanize. He sees
cars as deadly in a very literal
sense they are hiding places
for bombs, they explode. The
Belfast City Council, however,
does not agree. They plan to run
a major road right through
Frank's bicycle shop unless it
is destroyed first by IRA bombs.
There is also a love triangle
between Frank, a very outspoken
young woman nann id Daisy and
Julian, Frank's adopted brother.
a cynic to whom the past is
meaningless.
The original music for
"Spokesong" was written by
limmy Kennedy, who has
written such famous lyrics as
"Red Sails in the Sunset," "The
Isle of Capri" and "South of the
Border."
The USF production is
directed by Jack Belt. The
costumes are designed by
Margaret Hall, and the scenic
designer is William A. Lorenzen.

By PAULA S. ZIELONKA
Carl and Paula Zielonka took
their children, Stephen. 12. and
Caryn, 9'i. on a United Jewish
Appeal family Mission to Israel
this past summer. It was Carl
and Paula's third trip to Israel
and their children's first. Paula, a
superb note taker agreed to share
their experiences with our
readers. This is the second in-
stallment covering this trip.

8:30a.m.-YadVashem,
Jerusalem
Shalmi Barmor, our speaker
last night, led us through the
garden statuary, the Avenue of
Righteous Gentiles, and the
Museum. Having him as a guide
we could not dwell in any one
area of the museum or have time
for discussion. I just hope that
they did understand one thing
how the Holocaust is related to
the importance of Israel.
11:30 a.m. Mount Herd.
Jerusalem
The children wanted to see the
grave of Yoni, the only casualty
of the Entebbe raid. After
hearing Colonel Shaham speak
and seeing the movie
dramatization of the raid, this
grave, among the hundreds there,
was of one individual they seem
to feel that they knew. Another
grave they were anxious to see
was that of Golda Meir. Un-
fortunately, we had taken too
long at Yad Vashem and did not

6:15 p.m.-Shabbat
at the Wall. Old City
Shabbat at the Wall is an
amazing spectacle. Men are
praying in groups, according to
their sect or synagogue. Each
group prays in its own way and
at its own pace. Men in long
black coats with round fur hats
daven in one section, the section
closest to the Old Temple. Others
sit or stand in groups
davening, rising, sitting, praying
and singing either in unison or at
each individual's own rate.

Not as much activity occurs on
the women's side, although the
lines of women facing the wall
and praying deepens as the sun
begins to set and Shabbat ac-
tually arrives.
Once the sun sets, the young
men from the Yeshiva come down
the hill, dancing four and five
abreast until they reach the
enclosure around the Wall. They
then form a close-knit single line
and snake dance while swaying
and singing. Many others join in

praying In the Old City Z

joy and with a feeling of thank

9:30 p.m. Shoresh
After our Shabbat meal some
of the adults and children have
begun dancing. Caryn's face is so
joyful that I am happy just
watching her face glow.
July 5
9:30 a.m. Services at Shoresh
At services, the Torah portion
tells how important inheritance
especially inherited property, was
to the Israelites who came to the
Promised Land from Egyptian
slavery. According to Larry
Rubenstein, who led the services
the Bible very thoughtfully and
intricately shows that keeping
the land that God had given us
was of prime importance.
After services, Carl goes on an
optional trip with Ya'acov Aloni
(Yoni), one of our guides, through
the land of Benjamin, the West
Bank. The children want to relax
and swim, and I need to clean
some clothes; so we remain at
Shoresh. The need of a break out-
weighs my desire to learn and to
see more.

July 6
8:30 a.m. -Bab-EI-Waad
Bab-EI-Waad is the opening on
the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Road, the
old Jaffa Road. At this point the
high mountains around
Jerusalem suddenly become the
rolling hills that gradually slope
to the coastline at Tel Aviv and
the ancient city of Jaffa. At Bab-
EI-Waad is located the remains of
a building once used as a guest
house centuries before the
current road existed. At one time
the journey from Jaffa to
Jerusalem took two days on foot
or horseback. Travelers along the
trail would make an overnight
stop at the guest house before
continuing through the moun-
tains to Jerusalem, or through
the hills to Jaffa.
8:45 a.m. Lod-Ramlin area
The Lod-Ramlin area was
formerly the center of Arab
nationalism prior to 1948. In the
1948 War for Independence, the
area was taken in a lightning
attack led by Moshe Dayan. The
capturing of this valley was
important not only because of its
location in the center of the
country, but also because in cap-
turing the area, the strong Arab
nationalism there was dissipated.
9:30 a.m.. KfarSaba
Absorption Center
Before arriving at the Absorp-
tion Center at Kfar Saba, we
traveled through the fertile
Sharon Valley, located between
the Mediterranean Sea and the
Judean Hills. This valley has
long been noted for its beautiful
orange groves.
The main street of Kfar Saba is
named Herzl, as in many towns
in Israel. The Absorption Center
located here houses 260 people
who have immigrated to Israel
from all over the world USSR,
Canada, U.S.A., Mexico, Argen-
tina, etc. AU individuals assigned
to this center are unmarried and
live here for approximately five
months. The mornings at the
center are spent in Hebrew study,
while the afternoons are spent
studying the Israeli culture.
