Emigration and Refuseniks
Since 1970, when Jews began
to leave the USSR in significant
numbers, nearly a quarter of a
million Jews have emigrated. In
1979, a record 51.303 Jews left
the Soviet Union, compared to
29,000 the previous year and
35,000 in the previous record
year, 1973. Such a response to the
concerns of the world Jewish
community raised hopes that the
long-range Soviet policy had
eased. However, a severe drop in
emigration in 1980 (a mere 700 in
August) has heightened our
concern for the growing number
of refuseniks and the desperate
plight of the Prisoners-of-
Conscience.
Other disturbing changes in
emigration policies include a new
requirement that applicants for
visas show invitations only from
"first-degree" relatives in Israel.
This has been construed to
recognize only parents or children
and. hence, many invitations
have been disqualified.
Applications are being rejected
in increasing numbers: 900 in
Odessa between July and
October. 1979; 300 "first-time"
refusals in Kharkov in a 3 month
interval; 200 in Kiev in a single
week. These rejected applicants
technically are not "refused" but

Our warmest congratulations to Karen Sue Kline, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Kline, on her recent engagement to
Edward Seidel, son of Mr. and Mra. Tom Seidel of Claymont,
Delaware.
Karen is a graduate of Plant High School and works at
Tampa General Hospital as a nursing assistant. Edward works
with Vision Enterprises.
A May wedding is planned at Congregation Rodeph
Sholom.
A rousing round of applause goes to George Karpay who
was chosen "Tampa Home Builder of the Year." Home Builders
put up nominees for this auspicious award and then a committee
selected one winner, based on his outstanding contributions to
the home building field and in other community activities. At
the December meeting of the Home Builders Association,
George was surprised with the announcement of his winning and
the presentation of a beautiful trophy, which is now on display
in his office at the model home of Timberlane. Son Barry had
the honor of making the presentation and presenting a slide
history of George's 30 years in the field of home building. We
think your honor is just marvelous, George many
congratulations!
Many of you know Dale Johnson, senior counselor at the
Jewish Community Center, but do you all know what a magnifi-
cent singing voice she has? Few of us have ever had the pleasure
of enjoying her talent but now you can. In connection with
the JCC School of Music, Dale will begin teaching private voice
lessons. She received her education at the Toronto Conservatory
and at the University of South Florida. Dale has done many
radio performances and has worked at lyric and ensemble
theatres. So for those of you who have always dreamed of having
your raw singing ability really trained and shaped into singing
talent, now is your chance. Call Pate Pies at the JCC for more
information.
Elliott and Lillyan Osiason were thrilled to have their new
grandson. 3 month old Ian Matthew Rawn visit with them for 10
days over the recent Thanksgiving holiday. Traveling with Ian
from his home in Atlanta were his mom and dad, Margie and
Hugh Rawn. We hope that you enjoyed your first Tampa visit,
Ian!
Anne Thai, executive director of Tampa Jewish Social
Service turned television star, was the guest on "Women's Point
of View" last Saturday on Channel 8. Anne was interviewed by a
panel on "The Non-traditional Family."
Food, Glorious Food! At the recent November meeting of
the evening chapter of Women's American ORT, the chapter
really paid tribute to their stomachs. First, they enjoyed an
Oriental cooking demonstration by Bonnie Eleff of Pampla-
mousse. Those in attendance were able to sample each item pre-
pared by Bonnie, plus she shared all of the recipes with the
group. In addition, the evening was devoted to a holiday food
auction. Goodies made by ORT members were auctioned off at
reasonable prices, enabling "Student Health" to benefit at the
same time. It was a truly delicious meeting!
During the Thanksgiving Wednesday service held at the
Franklin Street Mall under the sponsorship of the Council of
Downtown Churches, Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal of Congregation
Kol Ami delivered a "Prayer for Country and World." The
service was directed by Reverend John S. Lyles, Pastor of First
Presbyterian Church, who prior to the service said, "The
dramatic redevelopment of the downtown business sector and all
of the construction now underway has tended to focus every-
one's attention on bricks and mortar. The Council hopes that
this Thanksgiving program will help to redirect attention to the
people element of downtown."
Best of luck to Midge Pasternack who just began her new
position as chairman of SACS (Senior Arts and Crafts Shop).
She will head the group which, in cooperation with the City of
Tampa Recreation Department and the JCC, advises and plans
for the only non-profit, volunteer-run senior citizens crafts con-
signment shop in the County. She hopes to develop an outreach
program that will bring "the shop to the shoppers." SACS is
located in the Tampa Recreation Center on North Boulevard.
Single parenting is becoming more and more prevalent in
today's society, and the Jewish Community Center is ready to
meet the needs of those who fit into the category. Pate Piea is
starting a "Single Parent Group" to provide a comfortable
setting for these persons to talk about changes in relationships,
discuss parenting alone, its problems and joys, and to just
socialize with others who have something in common with them.
However, Pate needs some names so she can really shape this
idea into a working, productive concept. Call her at the Jewish
Community Center if you are interested in being a part of what
promises to be a most informative and fun experience.

State Dep't. Says
U.S. Considers Aid to Jordan
By HKDKN SILVER
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) The U.S. is con-
sidering the delivery of ad-
ditional spare parts and
ammunition to Jordan as a
result of the current tension
along the Syrian-Jordanian
border, but no decisions
have been made yet, the
State Department said.
State Department spokesman
John Trattner made clear that
the deliveries would be in ad-
dition to "what already is in the
pipeline." observing that Jordan
is a friend whose security is
important to us."
HE NOTED also that "we
have a long-time military supply
relationship with Jordan." He
mentioned that "after con-
sultation with Uongress, we have
contracted with Jordan for the
sale of 100 M-60 A-3 tanks,
delivery to start in 1982."
Trattner's remarks were in
effect a reiteration of what State
Department sources said last
Friday with respect to the build-
up of Syrian troops on the
Jordanian border. The State
Department confirmed on Friday
that Jordan, Syria and Israel
were among the countries con-
tacted on this situation.
Asked if the U.S. had con-
tacted the Soviet Union to urge
Syria to pull back its forces,
Trattner said that he would not
comment on diplomatic contacts.
The Soviet Union is the principal
supplier of military equipment to
Syria.
TRATTNER SAID: "Actions
which raise tensions in tW
region of the world created) '
ditional tensions. We are i
ching the situation very closely
and we call on aU involved tn
exercise restraint and caution
We also said Friday that Jordan
is a friend whose security
important to us.
"We have a long-time military'
supply relationship with Jordan
We have been consulting with
them about the Syrian build-un I
on Jordan's border. We don't
exclude further deliveries u>
Jordan of spare parts and am-
munition but no decisions have |
been made on that.''
Trattner added. Our cenlraj
aim is to do everything possible
to help prevent more instability I
in an already troubled area In
that regard, we hope the con.
tinuing efforts of Saudi Arabia
to ease the tensions will be'
successful."
Frank Walus, once stripped of his U.S. citizenship for allegedly hiding a past as a Nazi Gestapo
agent, leaves District Court in Chicago last week after being cleared of any chance of
reprosecution. Walus, 58, was convicted in May, 1978 on civil charges of misrepresenting
himself while applying for citizenship. (Wide World laser photo).
Justice Dep't. Gives Up on Walus Case
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Justice Department said
that k would not seek a retrial of
suspected Nazi war criminal
Frank Walus after an appeals
court reversed a lower court order
to revoke his American
citizenship. Walus, 58. a resident
of Chicago, was found guilty by a
U.S. District Judge in Illinois of
having concealed his Nazi ac-
tivities when he applied for
citizenship.
During a four week non-jury
trial in 1978, testimony by 12
witnesses, including six from
Israel and the rest from
Czestochowa and Kielce in
Poland, identified Walus as a
member of the Gestapo who
committed acts of violence
against Jews and others in those
towns during World War II.
WALUS, who is German-born
but lived in Poland since the age
of 10, contended that the Nazis
had pressed him into service as a
farm worker when they invaded
Poland in 1939 and that he spent
the war years near Ulm. Ger-
many, about 1.000 miles from the
scene of his alleged crimes.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Seventh Circuit, which had
granted Walus' appeal for a new
trial last February, reversed the
district court order on grounds
that documentary evidence
discovered in Bavaria and
corroborated by six witnesses,
confirmed that Walus spent the
war in Germany.
MHMHili^H
Allan Ryan Jr., chief of the
Justice Department's Office of
Special Investigations, said, in a
joint statement with U.S.
Attorney Thomas Sullivan of
Chicago, that "The striking
absence of corroborating
evidence and indeed the un-
deniable weight of evidence
tending to indicate that Walus
spent the war years as a (arm
worker in Germany compels the
conclusion that we could not
responsibly go forward with the
ret rial."
RYAN SAID the government
would recompense Walus for out-
of-pocket expenses incurred in his
defense but not his attorney fees.
Holocaust Observer's Biography
Appears in Montreal Edition
By JANICE ARNOLD
MONTREAL (JTA) The first biography in
English of Arthur Zygielbaum, the Polish Jewish labor
leader who tried to alert the Allies to what was to become
known as the Holocaust, has been published by the Work-
men's Circle in Montreal.

baum," is written by Montreal playwright Aviva Ravel
and represents a collation of existing Yiddish materials on
Zygielbaum, including his personal memoirs and poetry
Proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the
building of a monument to Zygielbaum in the pre-
dominantly Jewish Montreal suburb of Cote St. Luc.
The Jewish Labor Bund, the Jewish Community
Federation of Greater Montreal and the Workmen's Circle
in New York assisted in the publication of the book.
Zygielbaum committed suicide in 1943 while serving as a
representative in the Polish government-in-exile m

How to Teach the Holocaust
I Teachers constantly struggle
kith "How to Teach the
Holocaust.'' Teaching it in the
(eiigious school presents the
dditional problem of not just
ching it as an historical
appening, but also as a part of
he development of the Jewish
ople today. Just as we are re-
1 during the Passover
er that it is as if each one of us
brought forth from the land
i Egypt, so it is the aim of the
eligious school teacher to see
it an understanding and a
eling are also imparted to to-
iv s students.
Ninth grade students at
on n re gat ion Schaarai Zedek
eligious School wrote essays
owing the viewing of the film
Hie Camera of My Family, Four
Generations in Germany, 1845-
iM5." Mrs. Nathan Bryn,
Isacher of this class, and herself a
urvivor of the Holocaust, felt
he achieved far more than her
pal with the students.
Through Mrs. Bryn and the
Wigious school director, Joan
^Itschuler, excerpts from their
ssays are presented.
"If we are to survive we must
make one clear distinction bet-
ween us and the Jews of Ger-
many. We must know the past to
know the future. That is if we
know how to react to past situa-
tions we will know what to do in
the future,'* wrote Brett Laming.
Regina Dobrovitsky wrote, "For
me it's a new feeling that cries
out, 'Hey, that's my people
you're talking about, my second
family, my nation'!" "Too often
people think that if you sit back
and let things cure themselves it
will be allright. Instead you must
act," was expressed by Brad
Tobin.
"I can not believe that Jews
back then did not have the good
sense to leave Germany," were
the words of Andy Rosenkranz.
Robin Bloom wrote, "I think that
some day I would like to search
for my families past...Sometime I
wish I had known some of my
relatives...I wish I had more
relatives." "It was a very touch-
ing movie," wrote Roger Jacob-
son, "an I thought that it was
related to my family." Ilene
Kelman indicated a different type
of feeling, "This film allowed me
to see the way that old pictures
can open up the past. It's almost
eerie to look at old pictsres and
see my sister and aunt and
grandmother...at the same age,
they could pass for each other. "
' I will always feel some kind of
hatred, even though I don't hate
any specific thing. But movies
like this one about the Holocaust
bring out the hate in me," wrote
Jeannie Lazarus. "It must have
taken a lot of strength to look
back at photos, memories of the
past," Lila Polur thought, "and
realize what had happened to i
each person as an individual and
the family as a whole."
"I experience total frustration
when thinking of the aid that was
not offered from this country,
which is said to be interested in
the welfare of everyone," was the
view of Amy Stern. The thoughts
of Troy Atlas sum up the class
reaction, "But Jews have the
desire and the will power to
survive and no matter what
downfalls they meet, the Jews
will still live on."

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Friday, Decent,
Chanukah, 1980
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, of the American
Jewish Committee, has observed that there can be no
more appropriate theme for Chanukah, 1980 than
"eight lights for human rights." We agree.
Chanukah commemorates the victory of Judah
the Maccabee over the massive armies of the Syrian
Empire, and then the rededication of the Holy;
Temple in Jerusalem which the Syrians had defiled.
It is also true that the Maccabean victory was
the first successful triumph in the struggle for
human rights, particularly for freedom of conscience
and pluralism, in the history of mankind.
In line with Rabbi Tanenbaum's suggestion, we
can only hope that Chanukah, 1980 will heighten the
consciousness of the Jewish people, and that of many
others, to rekindle the Maccabean spirit in today's
troubled world.
To clarify the theme in modern terms, it might
be worthwhile to speculate on what might have
happened had the Syrians defeated the Maccabees. It
is conceivable that Judaism might have perished
and with it therefore Christianity and Islam, too.
The Rabbi is on target when he says that, in-
| stead of cursing the darkness, let Chanukah be a time
to light a candle for life and hope.
Weizmann Institute Honorees
In the last twelve months, a remarkable number
of Weizmann Institute scientists have been honored
by the international scientific community.
Their research contributions range from matters
geophysical to those genetic; across remote atomic
worlds and those urgently medical. They bring fresh
understanding and data as to the forces that en-
courage harmony. And for nature gone wild, keys to
cure and prevention four of the laureates are
cancer investigators and immunologists.
The awards pay tribute to creative scientific
thinking and experimentation carried out by them
over many years decades in some instances at
the Institute's famed laboratories in Rehovot, Israel.
They hail originally, these seven, from many
spheres and places Bialystock, Leipzig, Tomas-
zew. Tel Aviv, New York. Jerusalem, and a village
called Alytus in yesterday's Pale. They number
scientists who fathered the Institute, heading up its
earliest faculties and departments 30 years ago, as
well as members of a new generation in Israel that
was trained by them.
Their achievements will be hailed by the South
Florida community at the Dec. 14 gathering of the
Institute on Miami Beach at the Fontainebleau
Hilton Hotel. For continuing the course set in 1944
by the Institute's 13 American founding fathers,
they are helping it maintain itself as Israel's unparal-
leled ambassador among the nations. Their scientific
investigation does honor to an ancient people come
home, stirred by the spirit of free inquiry.
Pledges and Performance
Ronald Reagan will become President of the
United States Jan. 20, 1981 with perhaps having
made stronger campaign commitments to Israel than
any of his predecessors. He has stressed that he
believes the United States not only has a moral
commitment to the Jewish State, but that he con-
siders Israel an ally and a strategic asset in the
Middle East. .
Reagan, like the man he has just defeated.
President Carter, enters the White House with little
foreign policy experience. That is why it is so un-
fortunate that top-ranking members of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee like Jacob Javits (R..
N.Y.i. Frank Church (D.. Idaho! and Richard Stone
(D.. Fla.) were also defeated in this election

PRESIDENT CARTER failed

because he had his eye on history, i
A man so inclined is not likely to
make history. Obsession with the
future is but one step removed:
from trying to control the future
in order to guarantee one's place
in it.
Such a man. and in the
presidency Carter was one of
them, will hardly commit himself
to an action, any action, that in
his opinion would win him
thumbs down by a jury assigned
to evaluate his role in history. He
is addicted to the hocus-pocus of
the poll-taker.
RICHARD NIXON was such a
man. too. if of a different order.
Nixon's determination to control
his future assessment in history
was so overwhelming that he
engaged in criminal activity in

and sing the carols about the,

court interference.
The two-year fight by the
American Jewish Congress, the
American Civil Liberties Union
and concerned South Dakota
citizens ended early in November
when the Supreme Court voted 7

issue. Only Justices William J.
Brennan Jr.. 74. and Thurgood

reasons offered by those fighting
to keep the public schools free of
religious holiday observances.
This probably brings to an end
the long struggle aimed primarily
at protecting the faith sen-
sibilities of non-Christian
children in the public schools in
the holiday season.
IN ITS appeal to the court, the
American Jewish Congress
contended that the Sioux City

JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Attorney General,
Prof. Yitzhak Zamir, an-
nounced Monday that he
has decided to bring
charges against Minister of
Religious Affairs Aharon
Abu Hatseira on account of
taking bribes from three
religious institutions in
Bnei Berak. The Attorney
General informed Prime
Minister Begin, Abuh and
Knesset Speaker Yitzhak
Berman of his decision
taken after long weeks of
meticulously studying
eight separate police files
against the minister.
The next stage in the legal
process against the minister will
be in the Knesset's House Com-
mittee, where Zamir will ask for
I he removal of Abuh's immunity.
House Committee Chairman
Moshe Meron (Likud Liberal)
said Monday night he hoped to
keep the committee's delib-
erations short to avoid further
protraction of the case, which had
already caused the suspected
minister so much pain.
KNESSET SPEAKER
Berman said his own view, based
on past experience of immunity
hearinga involving Knesseters.
was that the House Committee
should consider solely whether
the government was in M ay
persecuting the suspecteu Knes-
Beter or otherwise interfering
with his role as a Knesseter or
with the work ol the Kneaset as
si. h. The House Ct mmitree
should not. said Berman, enter
into the merits of the ease in
question
But that is not a universally
accepted view \aunal lie-
ligious Party faction Chairman
} ehuda Ben-Meir a committi
member, said Monday night he
believed the committee BOUSt
examine the basis ol the Attor-
ney General's request for remov ;il
of immunity" and see if there is
a/i/-/.' case
Ben-Meir urged the public to
Warn a lesson' from the fact
that Abuh was to be charged (if
his immunity is eventually
removed) on only one bribery
issue though the press over
the past months had "accused
him of practically every crime
under the sun."
BEN-MEIR said he was not
minimizing the gravit of the sus-
pected offense. He was merely
pointing out that many other
issues cited during Abuh's "trial
by press" had not been con-
sidered by the Attorney General
worthy of basing a charge upon
them.
Ben-Meir noted, too, that the
bribery charge seemed to be
based on the evidence of state's
witness. Yisrael Gottleib. the
NKP official and former Mayor of
Bnei Berak. Abuh's attorneys
have sought to argue all along
and are expected to argue in
court too, that Gottleib's
evidence is insufficiently credible
or that Gottleib himself is insuf-
ficiently trustworthy.
The Attorney General called a
press conference, where he dis-
tributed the charge sheet, signed
by State Attorney Gabriel Bach,
and explained his decision.
HE SAID he had turned down
police recommendations to bring
charges based on five separate
files against Abuh. A sixth, in-
volving suspected election bribes
in Ramie in 1978, was also found
lacking after long consideration.
The two remaining files con-
n.inirinnH and allegations
during 1978 and 1979 from three
separate Bnei Berak Torah insti-
tutions in return for inflating his
ministry's allocations to these
institutions.
Charged with Abuh are his
senior aide. Moshe Gabbai
both men are to be arraigned for
taking bribes and Shmuel
Daskal, of Vishnitz Yeshiva, and
Amram Daskal. of the Yemenite
Heritage Institute, who are
charged with giving bribes.
A third institution involved is
the Spinka Yeshiva in Bnei
Berak, whose director, Hermun
Fruchter, is apparently to be
a state's witness alongside
Gottleib.
ACCORDING to the charge
sheet. Gottleib did the arranging
of the deals, and transmitted the
moneys to the aide, Gabbai, after
having reached the various
agreements in conversations with
the minister. Moreover, Gottleib
reported directly to the minister
on the completion of the various
deals.
Among the sums cited in the
charge sheet is one of IL 125.000
(from the Vishnitz institutions)
and another of IL 225,000 from
the Spinka institutions (both of
these are Hassidfc courts in Bnei
Berak).
"Sources close to Abuh" were
cited Monday night by Kol
Yisrael as being "surprised" that
the Attorney General had
decided to press charges on the
basis of the evidence at his
disposal. Abuh was said to be
confident that his innocence
would eventually be proven. He
was said to feel a victim of "the
greatest manhunt" this country
has ever witnessed.

In Buenos Aires
Catholics, Jews Under Right-Wing Attack at Latin Conference
NEW YORK, N.Y. -
Catholics and Jews came
under attack at a recent
anti-Communist congress
held in Buenos Aires.
According to Rabbi
Morton M. Rosenthal,
director of ADL's Latin
American Affairs Depart-
ment, "elements of Fas-
cism, neo-Nazism and anti-
Semitism were manifest"
among the 200 delegates to
the Fourth Congress of the
Latin American Anti-Com-
munist Confederation
which met in early Sep-
tember.
The Confederation is an af-
filiate of the World Anti-Com-
munist League which. Rabbi
Rosenthal said, has been
penetrated by activists
financed by Saudi Arabians
who have joined forces with
"diverse elements of the inter-
national ultra-right." These, he
said, are linked with Liberty
Lobby, the Washington-based,
ultra-right and anti-Semitic or-
ganization led by Willis A. Carto,
and to MSI, the principle neo-
fascist party in Italy.
RABBI ROSENTHAL noted
that the Argentine newspaper.
Iax Prensa. reporting on the con-
ference, said that an accredited
delegate had told a Brazilian
Orthodox Rabbi Calls
UAHC Chief 'Scurrilous'
NEW YORK- (JTA)-
The Rev. Jerry Falwell,
head of the Moral Majority,
has rejected charges by
Rabbi Alexander Schindler
that right wing religious
fundamentalist groups
foster the growth of anti-
Semitism in the U.S. He
called the assertion "false
and absolutely without
foundation."
At the same time. Rabbi
Abraham Hecht. president of the
Rabbinical Alliance of America,
called Schindler's charge "both
scurrilous and inane." He said
that As one who has met and
cooperated with the Moral
Majority I can safely state that
the ominous threats created by
Schindler's fantasy are totally
unfounded and devoid of proof."
SCHINDLER. president of the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations (UAHC). referred to
the "chilling power of the radical
right" in an address in San Fran-
cisco where the UAHC Board
was meeting. He observed that it
was "no coincidence that the rise
of the right-wing Christian fun-
damentalism has been accom-
panied by the most serious out-
break of anti-Semitism in Amer-
ica since the end of World War
II."
Falwell. in a statement from
his headquarters in Lynchburg.

Majority movement have helped
to create a climate which has led
to anti-Semitic incidences in the
United States" was "false and
absolutely without foundation."
"I do not have to prove to
Rabbi Schindler or anyone else of
my longstanding friendship for
the Jewish people in America and
around the world, and my strong
and continuing advocacy of the
cause of Israel." Falwell said.
HE NOTED that two weeks
ago. he received an award from
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
of Israel "in recognition of many
years of service to Israel and the
Jewish people everywhere." The
award, from the Jabotinsky
Foundation, was also given to 99
other prominent Americans. But
one of the awardees. Sen. Frank
Church (I).. Idaho), refused to
accept his because Falwell was
one of the recipients. Sen. Carl
Levin (D.. Mich.) also criticized
the award to Falwell.
In a blistering statement.
Hecht asserted that, contrary to
Schindler's view that the right-
wing Christian groups are a
disaster for America and the
security of American Jewry,
"these leaders are men of in-
tegrity, sharing many traditional
beliefs of the Jewish people .
values (which) have long ago
been rejected out of hand by
Schindler and his ilk "
Commenting on Schindler's
view that there is a link between
right-wing Christian groups and
the increase in anti-Semitic acts.
Hecht said. "This equation is as
valid as stating that inflation is
caused by the affluence of the
Jew." He added that Schindler's
"irreligious policies are a much
greater threat to the existence
and future of the Jewish people
than any other religious group in
America, past, present or
future."
journalist, "the Jews are respon-
sible for Marxist infiltration of
the continent, the moment will
soon come when we will exter-
minate all of them."
Rabbi Rosenthal said passage
of a resolution denouncing
Catholic clergy in Latin America
came as a surprise to Argentine
observers. The Congress called
on Latin American governments
to expel from their territories "all
Marxist Jesuit, neo-colonizers."
.The Jesuits were accused of
organizing rural guerrilla move-
ments under the pretext of evan-
gelization. Rabbi Rosenthal said.
During the conference, Lt. Col.
Luis Canedo Reyes, an aide to the
chief of staff of the Bolivian
armed forces, urged that the
Archbishop of La Paz. Jorge
Manrique. be expelled because of
opposition to the military junta
which recently seized power in
Bolivia.
THE CONGRESS, ADL
reported, also criticized President
Carter for allegedly aiding Marx-
ism through his human rights
policy and hailed Argentina
Bolivia and other Latin American
nations for their "courageous
stand" against American
"intimidation."
The strident tones of some of
the resolutions and the
statements by individual dele-
gates apparently proved em-
barrassing to the government of
Argentina, which hosted the
Congress, Rabbi Rosenthal said.
Although retired Argentine
Gen. Carlos Suarez Mason pre-
sided at the opening session, he
was not present at the press con-
ference. Informed sources in
Argentina said that the extreme
statements made by some Con-
gress delegates had not met with
the approval of Argentine
authorities.
Northrop Wants to Build Lavie
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel is considering a1
proposal by the Northrop Co., the American aircraft
manufacturer, for the joint development and production
of its projected second generation jet interceptor, the
La vie. The plane would replace the Kfir, the first combat
aircraft designed and manufactured in Israel.
THE NORTHROP proposal would have the Lavie
based on the latest type F-5 jet equipped with the
originally-contemplated Lavie engine. According to the
American firm, Israel would save up to $300 million in
development costs and a half million dollars per aircraft
on the production line.

Murder in Paris
Spreading Anti-Semitism Alarms Jews

EDWIN EYTAN
| PARIS (JTA) -
*nch Jewry is in a state
[alarm after an unknown
^an murdered the Jew-
j owners of a Paris travel
lency that specialized in
0 to Israel. The
ailant walked into the
Hjce of IT-Tours and fired
Ut bullets from an auto-
fric pistol, fatally wound-
Edwin Douek, 53, the
loprietor. His wife,
[ichele, 29, was killed in-
lintly, and a clerk was
ffhtly wounded. Edwin
buek died of his wounds
ler in a hospital.
[The incident was the first
Ital attack on Jews in
_nce since the Oct. 3
^mbing of the Rue Coper-
synagogue which took
ur lives. Police immed-
iately took precautionary
measures to protect major
Jewish institutions.
ROTHSCHILD BANK, only a
block away from the scene of the
shooting, was cordoned off. Care
were not permitted to park on ad-
jacent streets. Other Jewish-
owned businesses usually
associated with Israel were
placed under round-the-clock
guard.
The first news reports of the
shooting said the killings occured
in the course of a robbery. But no
money or valuables were taken
from the travel agency, a fact
confirmed by eye-witnesses who
said the gunman, whose raincoat
concealed his weapon, made no
attempt to rob the premises. He
simply opened fire without
saying a word and fled. Some eye-
witnesses said he appeared to be
an Arab.
The chief of the French
criminal police, Marcel LeClerk,
said the authorities are convinced

the murders were politically
motivated and committed on
behalf of an Arab country or a
terrorist organization opposed to
the Camp David agreements.
THE POLICE suspicions were
based on the fact that the weapon
was an Italian-made Beretta 7.65
automatic pistol equipped with a
Czech-made silencer. The bullets
were of Czech manufacture, the
police said. They noted that the
same type of weapon and equip-
ment was used in the murder of
the Syrian leader, Salah el-Bittar,
last July 21 and in the attack last
summer on former Iranian
Premier Shapur Bakhtiar. The
killer abandoned the pistol in a
Paris street.
But a member of the Israeli
Knesset, Assaf Yagouri, who was
visiting Paris at the time, dis-
agreed with the police theory. He
claimed the killings were the
work of "an anti-Semitic or-
ganization." Yagouri said his
own investigation and con-
sultations with the "appropriate
sources" convinced him that the
Doueks were the victims of anti-
Semites.
THE COUPLE was well
known in the Jewish community,
and news of their murder touched
off a near panic in some Jewish
quarters.
Meanwhile, the police conceded
that it will be difficult if not im-
possible to track down the
assassin. They said he probably
left the country immediately
after the shooting. Police sources
also admitted that the special
protection of Jewish institutions
cannot be continued indefinitely,
and the guards will eventually
have to be removed.

Weizmai^ Seeks Political Base in New Party to be Led by Dayan
By YITZHAK SH ARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) For-
mer Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman. who voted against the
Likud-led government on a
motion of no-eon fidence in the
Knesset, and who has been
ousted from the Herut Party, is
actively seeking a new political
base.
He insisted that it would not
be a coalition of loosely tied
dissenters such as those who
formed Yigael Yadin's
Democratic Movement for
Change which proceeded to
diM integrate after an impressive
electoral showing in 1977. It
would be. he said, a real alter-
native to the Labor Party and
Likud, and. if Weizman has his
way. it will be headed by former
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan.
ACCORDING TO Weizman.
Dayan is the political figure best
fitted to be Israel's next Prime
Minister. He is a man of out-
standing personal achievements
and great vision, better accepted
in the world at large and in the
Arab world in particular than any
other Israeli. Weizman siad.
Weizman's bombshell his
apparent writing off of any future
for himself in Likud and his
selection of Dayan rather than
himself to lead Israel out of its
many difficulties touched off
an orgy of speculation in political
quarters here. Only the evening
before. Weizman dined with
Dayan and they apparently
discussed the polit teal situation.
They have in common the fact
that both served in Prime
Minister Menachem Begins
coalition Cabinet and both quit
at different times largely
because ot dissatisfaction with
iiegin's domestic and foreign
policies. Both voted against the
government.
Ml 1 DAYAN ddaftai he left
the Cabinet in October. 1979thai
would serve out his term a< an
dependent \1K and not Beek
selection. He n in an
tervievt that he is no- presentl)
lannin a party or to take
irt m political in the
'. have no in-
i ntion to run for the Knc-M t in
'ie next elections, Dayan said
I "there might be another
.luation tomorrow
Manj observers batfeve thai
without a man of Dayan sstatun
ireetige to lead it. a nev
olitical movement would gei
owhere. Weizman would not saj
luring his interview who else ht
td in mind to make up the new
arty. Then an those who an
iterested and those who are
>t." he said
He observed that his people
ed not come from the existing
litical spectrum. "There are
uers who wish to see better
vernment, for the good ot tr.i
pie and the State," he said
A new party is not an d but
the means to lead the country tc
a better way."
SOME NEWS medii
speculated that former Justic
.nister Shmuel Tamir migh
in a Weizman group. Other,
suggested Finance Minister
Yigal Hurwitz who has been
reported on the verge of resigning
from the Begin government. But
most commentators observed
that whatever the composition of
the new party, there can be none
without an ideological consensus
to bind it. Lack of ideological
steadfastness is believed to have
been the cause of the DMC's
rapid demise.
If Weizman has not indicated
the ideological complexion of his
proposed movement he has been
outspoken in faulting Likud and
particularly, Begin. "This
government has failed to turn the
peace process the most
magnificent event in recent
history into a major lever to
alleviate the Jewish nation and
i srael in the economic and social
"Instead," Weizman claimed,
"this government regards peace
as almost a tragedy. The Finance
Minister has presented the peace
as a negative factor in our
economy. Peace, if properly
handled, should have brought
more Jews here and more in-
vestors Defining peace as a
source of our economic hardships
is misleading. It brings a feeling
of no-contidence and no-
confidence brought Labor's
downfall and will bring Likud's
downfall." he said.
WITH RESPECT to Begin.
Weizman said, "I am in good
relations with 118 members of the
Knesset. I am the 119th. The one
missing is Begin. 1 am sorry for
that. If Begin heads the Likud in
the next elections it would be a|
mistake. I am not going with|
him."
Weizman said. "I am for
advancing elections. We were not
elected to return the entire Sinai.
We were not elected to bring 130
percent inflation. Let's go to the
nation and see where we stand."
He also supported autonomy on
the West Bank and Gaza St rip
'We have signed an accord by
which the situation there will be
changed. My concept of
autonomy is simple: everything
except an army and foreign
policy. Palestinian entity? Yes.
Let us do what we have signed at
Camp David and after three or
live years we shall see what to do
next.''
Sharon Gets Tough
With MK's On
Aide He Booted
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Ariel Sharon, the controversial
Minister of Agriculture, was at
the center of a mini-drama at a
Cabinet meeting Sunday. In a
rare move, the ministers refused,
for the third consecutive week, to
approve Sharon's proposal that
Men Shamir be appointed
director of the Lands Authority
in place ol Yaacov Aknin. whom
Sharon has fired.
The move is rare because in
general ministers do not interfere
in appointments made by their
colleague! But in this case,
tl I linnet members are
understood to feel that Aknin
a Herut loyalist and. by many
accounts, an efficient civil ser
van! has b.rn shabbily dealt
with.

Sharon said.
"1 don't need to lake orders

Ugh exchange between a
minister and a civil servant

more with Prime Minister Begir

RELATIONS between Sharon
and Naor have long been sour,
with Sharon suspecting Vior of

The Cabinet voted to defer the
Shamir appointment, and Sharon
vowed to bring it up again next
week.
But this was not the end of
Sharon's gruff performance at
she Cabinet. He attacked Chief of

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Miketz
i
MIKETZ Joseph had been in prison for two full years when
he was called out to explain Pharaoh's dreams.
Pharaoh had dreamed of seven fat cows being swallowed
by seven lean cows, and of seven fat stalks of grain swallowed by
I seven lean ones. Joseph explained that seven years of plenty
j would be followed by seven years of hunger. Joseph then
: suggested that Pharaoh appoint a wise man to store away food
: during the good years ahead.
Pharaoh was pleased with this plan and appointed Joseph
i ruler over all his people.
Joseph was 30 years old when he became Pharaoh's prime
i minister. He managed well and when the famine came, people
from every country thronged to Egypt to buy food, and among
them Joseph's own brothers. He recognized them at once, but
they did not know him, and he ordered them to bring their
youngest brother Benjamin on their next journey to Egypt
This they did, and Joseph had a silver goblet secretly
: placed in Benjamin's grain back. "The man who has stolen my
goblet," said Joseph, "will by my slave!" When the goblet was
discoverd, Joseph insisted that Benjamin remain with him as his
servant. (Genesis 41.1 44 17

it did not want to hear. No
wonder then that President
Carter, ever mindful of his public
image, mulling dispiritedly over
the results of the latest preferen-
tial polls, rapidly acquired the
reputation of a milk sop.
There is much in this for
Ronald Reagan to study. His
appeal during the campaign was
to a freshness of approach, a
rejection of the old faces, the
power-brokers who have been in
Washington from time im-
memorial, whisking from one
administration to another
regardless of party affiliation,
proposing their unchanging ideas
and their very special interests.
His appeal was to minority
groups, including women, too
long excluded from the white,
male-dominated fortress of
national decision-makinir
Especially in the case of women,
he rode upon the rough road of
anti-KRA declarations at the
same time that he reaffirmed his
bcliel in the principle that there
shall be no discrimination based
upon sex.
REAGAN'S appeal was in the
end an attack upon the
-
Georgians, the Carter mob that
promptly insulated Mr. Carter
from mainstream and even grass-
roots America and that gave him
a view of contemporary Real-
potttik that would have served
him far better in the land of Oz.
Reagan, we were meant to
believe, would bring in new faces,
new ideas, long-suffering minor-
ities who never had a chance at
bat.
His inauguration is still well
more than a month away, and
already we see that President-
Klect Reagan has not learned the
lesson of Jimmy Carter's defeat.
He has not yet stepped into the
office, and already we know he
will not be an immortal. The
minions of candidates for his
cabinet choices are the same old
Nixon-Ford brokers. In their
ranks were women, to whom he
should have paid particularly
special attention, but they were
only grudgingly listed and then
only at the bottom of the pecking
order of power. Hlacks did not
tare any better. As for Jews,
whom Mr. Reagan courted so
avidly, now they arc forgotten.
Replacing the Georgians in a
new fortress are the Califormans
and. one step removed, the old
failures of another era.
NCCJ Says Baptist Smith is Dangerous
MEW YORK Dr. David
flit, president of the National
tlerence of Christians and
k. has issued a response to
ey Smith's remark in a recent
on in which he is quoted as
|inng that Jews have "funny-
nking noses."
In a statement given to the
Irom his New York
dquarters Hyatt said:
Once again Americans are
eked by a public comment
a Christian religious leader
it reflects the kind of latent
ti-Semitism that exists in this
It's those kinds of snide
narks that, if left un-
dlenged. plant the virulent
cancers that lead to Holocausts,
apartheid laws and social
repression, sanctioned by an elite
few.
"NCCJ CALLS upon all
Americans, especially our
political leaders led by President
Carter and President-Elect
Reagan, to rise in unison against
that kind of racist slur.
"Dr. Smith should keep his
anti-Semitic feelings to himself,
and certainly not use the pulpit
to promulgate his brand of
bigotry and anti-Semitism. It is
unconscionable and immoral for
him to use his position as head of
the Southern Baptist Convention
to fan the flames of prejudice.

remark from his recent sermon,
'Why did God choose the Jews? I
don't know why. I think they've
got funny-looking noses myself. I
don't know why. That's God's
business,' was reported in the
Dallas Morning News on Nov. 13.
'HIS EARLIER remark in
Dallas in August that "God
Almighty does not hear the
prayer of a Jew' was theologically
primitive, and this is a throwback
to the cruel and vicious way of
thinking that spawned the Ku
Klux Klan and the Nazi
movement.
"As a Catholic and a Christian,
1 find his comments repugnant,
outrageous and dangerous. They
must not be allowed to go
unanswered. Dr. Smith ap-
parently forgets that Jesus
1 Himself as a Jew. Moreover, he in
.no way speaks for the Christian
community as a whole.
"Indeed, his attitude toward
Jews, if his remarks are an in-
dication, are not only anti-
Semitic and anti-Christian, as
well, but they violate the spirit
and teachings of Jesus.
"THE DALLAS press reports
of Dr. Smith's remarks, taken in
context, indicate he thought he
was being humorous and
lighthearted and that he loves
his Jewish friends.'
Hut the implication of what
he said was insensitively
derogatory and a gross and
terrible put-down, sadly un-
worthy of any Christian or Jew
with ecumenical understanding,
let alone the president of
America's most numerically
dominant Protestant group."
IN THE Sen. Percy trip to
Moscow, we see a frank state-
ment to the Russians that SALT
II is dead a position that
Reagan espoused prominently
during his campaign for the
presidency. But it is a position
that the Democrats, while they
still possessed overwhelming
dominance in the Congress,
embraced just as well, except for
President Carter himself, and so
the Reagan view on SALT II is
hardly either new or daring.
Similarly, Sen. Percy, aa the
President-Elect's emissary, has
already let Mr. Reagan's Jewish
supporters know that the bravi
Reagan words about the PL(
and a Palestinian state were jus

as a frankly expedient politica
campaigner's grandstanding

Once the post-campaign dust ha--

brokers are reinstated and th

It is an inauspicious beginning,
the President-Elect s. His oppor
tunity is rare: considering his

duck President, a man if he wil!
be his own man. with nothing u
lose except the lreeuom to choose
as h s.es it With nothing to-iose
but his place in history were his
choices to beiunirupired.
And yet, Mr. Reagan is already
embarked on the old ways, quite
as if he were not a lame duck and
all that being a lame duck offers
as advantage. He is looking to
assure his place in history by
treading lightly upon the present,
and -therefore relinquishing it in
the future.

Earthquake Relief for Italians
B'nai B'rith International has announced it will
contribute SI,000 to the people of Italy for relief
aid in the wake of the devastating earthquake
that has taken the lives of thousands and left
hundreds of thousands homeless.
Jack J. Spitzer, B'nai B'rith president, said in a
statement from Hong Kong that additional funds
will be forthcoming from B'nai B'rith sub-
divisions outside the United States. The Jewish
service organization has members in 42 countries
throughout the world.
Spitzer said, "It is only fitting that in this
Thanksgiving season that those of us who are
fortunate enough to have the means and
wherewithal to contribute reach out to those in
desperate need."
There are strained relations between U.S.
Ambassador to Israel Henry Lewis and the
American Consul in the old city of Jerusalem,
Thomas Waukitch, according to Ha'orett. Lewis
deplores the pro-Arab policies of the Consul,
which finds expression not only in his meetings
with the Arabs, but also in his statements to
Congressmen and Senators visiting in Israel.
The U.S. Consul in the old city of Jerusalem is
independent of the Embassy in Tel Aviv. He files
his reports directly to the State Department in
Washington. After some very strong intervention
on the part of the Embassy in Tel Aviv, the State
Department has now directed Waukitch to send
copies of his reports to the Embassy in Tel Aviv,
but he still retains his autonomy and in-
dependence from Ambassador Lewis.
The American Jewish Committee's Long
Island Chapter, expressing concern about
"discrimination practiced by certain private
social clubs,'' has called upon the representatives
in the New York State Legislature from Nassau
and Suffolk Counties to give "careful scrutiny" to
the discriminatory impact of any legislation i
calling for reduction of property taxes levied upon
private golf courses to preserve the State's open I
spaces.
A proposal to this effect was introduced in the
New York State Assembly last May but with-
drawn at that time when a variety of questions
were raised about its potential effects.
In a letter to Long Island's 30 State legislators,
Edward Labaton, chapter president, noted that
private social clubs on Long Island and in New
York State were reported to discriminate agains*
Jews, Blacks, women and other groups in ad
mission and membership policies.
"Our primary concern,'' Labaton said, "is that
the State not sanction, even tacitly,
discrimination practiced by certain private social
clubs."
The Maccabean Award of the New York Board
of Rabbis will be given to Congressman Benjamin
S. Rosenthal on Dec. 9, by the New York Board of
Rabbis.
Board President Rabbi Judah Washer,
pointing to Rosenthal's efforts on behalf of the
consumer, said that Rosenthal, in his position as
chairman of the House Subcommittee on Com-
merce, Consumer and Monetary Affairs, has
made the rights of consumers the critical focus of
his work. His advocacy on behalf of the consumer
has resulted in the passage of legislation
establishing the rights of consumers and the laws
that will help to protect these rights.
Congressman Claude Pepper, chairman of the
House Select Committee on Aging, is urging the
American Bar Association and the Justice
Department to end age discrimination "once and
for all" in the appointment of Federal judges.
Pepper has called on the ABA to revise its
practices of almost never recommending persons.
over 60 for initial appointment to the Federal
judiciary, and the Attorney General's customary
practice of proposing candidates baaed on this
ABA criteria.
The House of Representatives recently passed,
341-9, a sense of the House resolution which took
note of the age discriminatory appointment
procedures relating to judges. The resolution calls
upon the Bar Association and the Justice
Department "to take all measures necessary to
end discrimination against potential lifetime
Federal judges who do not qualify solely as
result of arbitrary age barriers." The Senate
approved a counterpart measure earlier this year.
A contingent of American citizens, all sur-
vivors of the World War II Holocaust, is expected
in Israel in June, 1981 for the World Gathering of i
Jewish Holocaust Survivors. The Gathering is
expected to attract over 20,000 survivors from
Israel and around the world.
The Gathering will be held under the patronage
of the Prime Ministery Board. Chairpersons, both
survivors, are American author Elie Wiesel and'
president of the European Parliament, Simone
Veil.
A group of well-known social scientists par-
ticipating in an all-day consultation on anti-
Semitism at the headquarters of the American
Jewish Committee in New York have called for
more intensive research into the history, politics
and psychology of religious hatred.
One leading Jewish historian Prof. Ismar
Schorsch. of the Jewish Theological Seminary
stated that while the Holocaust could never be
forgotten, constant preoccupation with its
horrors has helped create the impression that the
history of the Jews was one of unrelieved
misfortune instead of a series of ups and downs.
In s week of ceremonies that began on Sunday,
New York's Park Avenue Synagogue has opened
its new school building located at the corner of
87th Street and Madison Avenue. The five-story
school building was two years in construction and
almost eight years in the planning and fund-
raising stage.
The new building is dedicated to the memory of
one-million Jewish children who perished in the
Holocaust. Distinguished representatives from
the worlds of academics, literature, and politics
will address the synagogue's congregation at the
dedication ceremonies.

justification of the harassment to
which they are subjected by the
Soviet bureaucracy. Their
l>ersecution is a major violation
of human rights. The refuseniks
known to the West have per-
sisted in their efforts to obtain
exit visas, in some cases for 10
years or more, despite repeated
rebuffs, harassment, arrests,
interrogations, dismissal from
their jobs, charges of
parasitism" (because they have
lost their jobs!), interception of
mail, disconnection of telephones,
and expulsion from educational
institutions (which makes
students immediately eligible for
military conscription, which in
turn Catch 22! provides a
"state security'' pretext for
denying their applications for 10
years).
Many, perhaps thousands, of
other refuseniks are unknown
because they have sought, in
anonymity, a refuge from such
persecution.
Prisoner s-of-Conscience:

has come an upsurge of arrests,

required its signatories (which
include the USSR) to facilitate
the free movement of people and
ideas, to expedite the reunion of
families, and, in general, to
respect and protect human rights
and individual freedom.
A special U.S. commission,
established by Congress to ]
monitor the Helsinki Accords,
has played an important role in
documenting and publicizing
Soviet violations. The first
review conference on the Helsinki
pact, held in Belgrade in 1977.
adjourned without formally
censuring any nation.
A second review conference is
convening this month in Madrid,
affording a further opportunity
to bring to world attention the
massive evidence of human
rights violations by the Soviet
, Union.

Iraq-Iran War Dampens UN's Palestine Day
By YITZHAK RABI
| UNITED NATIONS -
^1 As a result of the
nuing war between
and Iran and the
re of administrations
["Washington, Palestine
ek here, which began
i the marking of Pales-
Day last Friday, has
j subdued, if not over-
iked altogether, accord-
ing to diplomats and ob-
servers here.
"This is very bad timing for a
Palestine celebration," one diplo-
mat opined. "For one thing, the
prestige of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization has reached a
new nadir as a result of the war
between two Moslem countries
that have adopted the Palestin-
ian cause. For another, the Arab
world is presently divided, as it
has not been for a long time. The
Arab states are in a state of con-
fusion and disarray and the un-
certainties concerning a new
American Administration and its
Mideast policy are only contribu-
ting to the confusion."
THIS IS THE third con-
secutive year that the United
Nations is celebrating Palestine
Week. The celebration of the
week starts each year on Nov. 29,
which is officially designated by
the UN as Palestine Day. But
shut Nov. 29 this year was
Saturday, the celebration was
moved one day ahead to Friday,

Ultra-Conservatives
Want Reagan
Pro-Israel Stand
ARLINGTON, Va. -
(JTA) The leaders of
three ultra-conservative
groups have urged Pres-
ident-Elect Ronald Reagan
to implement the pro-Israel
positions he took during
the election campaign
"through your appoint-
ments in the foreign affairs
and defense fields.'
The mailgram message, ad-
dressed to Reagan at his
Washington, D.C. headquarters,
a copy of which was sent to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency in
New York City, was signed by
Jerry Falwell. president of the
Moral Majority, Edward
McAteer, president of the
Religious Koundtable based in
Arlington, and Paul Weyrich.
president of the Committee for
tin- Survival of a Free Congress.
The three groups supported
Reagan's election.
THE IK MKSSAGE affirmed
the importance of increased
understanding and action among
Bible-believing Christians and
Jews tor a return to morality and
enlightened national policies in
America." It observed in that
context that "From our religious,
moral and strategic perspective,
Israel supremely represents our
values and hopes for security and
peace in the Middle East."
The signatories reminded Rea-
gan that he has "on many oc-
casions publicly recognized the
importance of Israel to our
national security." They ex-
pressed concern, however, that
"Unfortunately, many of those
vying for positions (in foreign
affairs and defense! hold views
which are incompatible with your
policy perspective on Israel.
Nevertheless, we have full con-
fidence and trust that you will
exercise good judgement
regarding such critical ap-
pointments."
The Moral Majority and other
right-wing evangelical groups
that supported Reagan are
known to be upset that he is
reportedly considering several
prominent Republicans who
ervad in the Nixon and Ford
Administrations for key
positions, including those of Sec-
retary of State, Detense Sec-
retary and Secretary of the
Treasury.

Reagan Will be Friendlier to IsraelJavits
BOSTON Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R., N.Y.) predicted to
delegates at a convention here
that Israel's interest would be
bettor served, at least in the short
run, by the policies of the in-
coming administration of
President-Klect Ronald Reagan
than if President Carter had been
reelected.
Speaking at the final session of
the 82nd anniversary National
Biennial Convention of the Union
of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America, Sen.
Javits also told the 300 delegates
that "the difference between
Reagan and Carter Ls that
Reagan will put a greater em-
phasis on security, improving
Israel's ability to defend itself,
I hus making Israel more useful to

described as "now a dead end."
LONDON Michael Foot.
newly-elected leader of Britain's
opposition Labor Party, has
made a strong call for friendship
between Britain and Israel here
and especially between Socialists
in both countries. Addressing a
dinner of the Labor Friends of
Israel, he offered his first
comments on Middle East
matters in many years.
It was intended to reassure
.SVn. Jacob.)arils
Labor's influential pro-Israel
lobby that although he is a left-
winger on economic matters, he
does not share the anti-Israel bias
of several other left-wingers.
Nevertheless, he made clear that
he would steer an even course
between Israeli and Arab
positions. He described the
Palestina conflict as one between
"two rights," adding that such
conflicts can be more dangerous
than those between a right and a
wrong.
JERUSALEM Prime
Minister Menachem Begin has
banned a political gathering of
Israeli Arabs that was to be held
in Nazareth on Saturday. Acting
on his authority as Defense
Minister. Begin maintained that
the purpose of the planned
meeting, known as the "Arab
Congress." was to identify with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization which is an illegal
body under Israeli law.
The organizers of the Congress
flatly denied the charge and said
that they would consider "all
legal means" to fight the ban.
This could include an appeal to
the Supreme Court and regional
gatherings in all Arab centers in
Israel. Begin acted under the
emergency regulations dating
from the British Mandate which
are still applicable under Israeli
law.
PARIS Israel's Foreign
Minister It/hak Shamir stressed
here that Israel "does not accept
the premises of the Venice
Declaration" the joint statement
issued by the nine member states
last summer calling for the with-
drawal of Israeli troops behind
the 1967 lines and PLO par-
ticipation in the peace process.

to rely on the Camp David
agreements and is prepared "to
make further concessions and

German Jew Critical of Pope
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) The chairman of the West Ge
man Jewish community, Werner Nachmann, ha
criticized Pope John Paul II for not giving enous
support to the Egyptian-Israeli peace talks.
In an interview published in Die Welt, a few dav
after he led a delegation of 30 prominent. West Germs
Jews in a meeting with the Pope in Mainz, Nachmann aQ
regretted that the Vatican has failed to officially recogniz
the State of Israel or to send a top-ranking envoy td
Jerusalem.
ASKED ABOUT the Pope's remarks to the Jewisll
delegation that there was a need for all people to be reconl
ciled in Jerusalem, Nachmann said: "I hope that what thi
Pope meant was that Jerusalem with its holy places a
today accessible to all religions. I hope that the Popl
meant he wishes peace will come and prays for it, that the
present situation will be kept untouched."
In its meeting with the Pope, the Jewish delegation
had asked the Pontiff to support the present situation ir
Jerusalem, noting that never in its history was access tc.
the holy places by people of all faiths more free than it is]
now. During the meeting, the Pope refrained from men-
tioning Israel.
