the adoption of a resolution
calling on the Security Council to
impose sanctions against the
State of Israel.
This was but one of several
sessions the Assembly devoted to
the Israel and Palestine Arab
issue to the exclusion of all other,
more pressing business.
NOR DID the Security Coun-
cil, whose function it is to protect
the peace and the integrity of
member nations, do anything
that day or later about the brazen
Libyan campaign of conquest in
Chad. As Col. Muammar Qadaffi
sent in more Soviet T-54 tanks
and Tupelov bombers to crush
remaining pockets of resistance,
the Security Council spent the
day discussing and sympathizing
with the two West Bank Arab
mayors expelled by Israel for en-
couraging anti-Israeli terrorism.
The Council's profound deli-
berations were crowned by
adoption of a resolution on which
U.S. Ambassador Donald F.
Mcllenry, no longer restrained
by the Carter administration's
anxiety not to alienate Jewish
voters before the election, en-
thusiastically voted for censure
of Israel.
Unremarked was the irony in
the vote for the resolution by the
British representative on the
Council an irony that lay in the
fact that he was censuring Israel
for acting in accordance with
regulations promulgated by the

Neurogar IV is said to revitalize
the peripheral nerves leading to a
target muscle, creating the
blocks between sensory and
motor nerves. It is especially
applicable when the patient
cannot voluntarily or is unwilling
to activate muscles.
The advanced Neurogar
system is effective in easing the
pain of rheumatism sufferers,
creating new muscular
facilitation for post-operative
patients, and even aiding stroke
victims to the extent that
movement is achieved despite
paralysis. The efficiency of these
units for muscle rehabilitation, it
is claimed, is being proven in
sports medicine with athletes
here utilizing them for the ef-
fective treatment of pulled
muscles. Victims of fractures are
said to be able to activate the
broken members immediately
after removing their casts with
the application of Neurgoar
during all phases of treatments.
The Israeli developed system,
it was also noted, will usually
obviate the needs for pills and
injections which are often
poisonous or habit-forming for
many patients.
A VARIETY of clinical studies
of treatment with Neurogar are
available based on clinical and
statistical research of patients in
Israel and abroad.
Mass-produced at the Agar
plant on the shores of the Sea of
Galilee, in coordination with
Prof. Florella M agora of the
Dept. of Anestheseology, and
Joseph Tannenbaum of the Dept.
of Bio-Medical Engineering of
Hadassah Hospital, the units are
already in use in thousands of
hospitals, clinics, and patients'
homes throughout the world.
Neurogar IV operates on a
simple 4AA Alkaline battery on
one electric channel and weighs
220 grams (7.7 ounces). The
personal pain relief Neurogar III
instrument weighs 100 grams. It
is distributed in the United
States by Inter-Med Industries

Duesseldorf court where nine former SS officials have
been on trial for more than five years on charges of com-
plicity in the murders of 250,000 inmates of the Maidanek

prosecution and defense some time next month.
BUT FIRST, the judges and attorneys flew to
Warsaw on Jan. 5 to hear testimony from the final wit-

was obviously agitated. As
secretary of Kibbutz Sufa
(storm) at the edge of the Sinai
desert, he had a lot on his mind
on a recent November afternoon
when participants in the UJA
Young Leadership Cabinet
"Hashiveynu" mission came to
visit..
In slightly less than a year, he
and the sixty-eight other kibbutz
members would have to leave,
abandon the fields and orchards
they spent nearly six years
developing, and start an entirely
new community in the Negev. As
part of the Camp David accords,
the land they had worked and
farmed would soon be returned to
Egypt. The site of their new
kibbutz, along what will become
the Egyptian border, was still
barren. Only a single lane asphalt
road ending abruptly in the vast
empty Negev indicates that here,
someday soon, there will he a new

to arrive at an equitable set-
tlement for the loss of their
property. Some will accept
compensation and find new
homes. Others may relocate to
new settlements in the Negev.
For the kibbutz members there
is no option. Either they must
move to the new site or leave the
community with nothing to show
for their years of effort.
Sufa is a young kibbutz. The
average age of the members is
only twenty-four. Most came to
the.community directly from the
army. Primarily, they were city
dwellers, young people who
sought to experience the pioneer
spirit that built Israel. A few
were raised on older, more
established kibbutzim. They
came to the Sinai because they
wanted to be involved in starting
a new community, just as their
parents had done. Together they
made it work. They took a few
buildings and the beginnings of
fields developed by the military
after the Six Day War, and
turned them into a growing
civilian settlement.
Today, they have young strong
orchards, although the trees are
still a few years away from
bearing a sizeable fruit crop.
They are harvesting tomatoes,
flowers and a wide variety of
vegetables. They built a dining
hall, added a community center
and even started construction on
B school building. looking toward
the day when there would be
school-age children on the kib-
butz. Now they will have to leave.
We're very concerned.'' said
Rafi in response to questions
from the mission members.

butz has not yet begun and the

Jewish Agency says that there is
not enough money to put up the
same number of buildings that
we have here. Even if they are
able to complete the kibbutz on
schedule, we will move in without
a dining hall and without a
community center. If they don't
complete it on time, our members
will have to return to the cities to
wait. If this happens, we are not
sure that Sufa will survive as a
community."
"This peace treaty is im-
portant,'' said Karen, a dark-
haired young woman who lived in
Tel Aviv before coming to the
Sinai. "We all support peace with
Egypt and hope that it will last
forever. Hut still, it is hard to
leave behind the tree I planted
four years ago. one I cared for
and nursed until it took root.
When we go. the water will be
turned off and the tree will die."
The Government of Israel and
the Jewish Agency have
promised the members ot Kib-
butz Sufa that they will receive
new facilities, but there is no way
to compensate them for the years
of work that they have invested.
After many difficult seasons of
laboring to make barren land
produce, the kibbutz has begun
to generate income. When
relocated, it will, once again, have

The answer is "snapping" used
to describe the sudden, drastic-
alteration of personality that has
become the American
phenomenon among our youth
and is spreading FAST. This
technique is being used by
destructive cults.
The cults use fear, guilt, hate,
poor diet and fatigue to destroy
the mind. Once the potential
member is hooked, the cult keeps
up a steady barrage of in-
doctrination until conversion is
complete
The destructive cults are
currently involved in a mass
recruiting effort from junior high
school students through college
students.

pject is supervised by the CJF

The prevailing attitude was
"I'm the only Jaw." That waa
what each of the families in
Brandon seem to feel. This
organizing group set out last
spring to find out just how many
people there were in Brandon and
then to find out how many of
those wanted to get together oc-
casionally for special ceremonies
and social events. A card survey
was made to define the interest of
the names they had.
"There were more than a few
who said they did not want to be
known "that way" in Brandon.
We asked if they were receiving
the Jewish Floridian and if not
would they like us to submit their
names. Some indicated that they
did not want a paper by that
name to be placed in their
mailboxes," Kraus said. The
concentration has been on those
60 or so who did signify an in-
terest.
The first activity of the
Brandon Jewish Chavurah was a
Seder held in the TECO social
hall in Brandon. About 18
families attended. That Seder
was the symbol that there was
enough interest to continue with
the group.
In December a Chanukah
party as held at the Mango
Recreation Center. Over 50
people attended and the write up
in the East Hillsborough Tribune
indicated it was a fun time for
parents and children. Vikki
Silverman provided musical
entertainment and games and
latkes made for a full evening.
There have been social events in
members homes between the
special holiday festivities.
"We're 10 to 12 miles from the
Jewish Community Center," said
Kraus, "And it is not always
convenient to attend all the
activities held there." But the
group does clear its meeting
dates with the Jewish Com-
munity Calendar and they try to
be represented at all community .
events.
"We are definitely not in-
terested in forming a
synagogue," states Kraus.
"About 75 percent of our group
all ready have a synagogue af-
filiation." Roos felt the figure to
be closer to half of the active
members belonging to a
synagogue and as low as one-
fourth of the entire list of names
were considered. The group now
numbers 60 families, with about
half that many paarticipating
regularly.
Always on the lookout for new
names, they are listed with the
Brandon Chamber of Commerce
and announce their activities in
the newspaper. "At the
Chanukah party, four new
families attended just from
seeing the notice in the paper. In
addition, we had people come
from Plant City and one family
came from Lakeland," Kraus
added.
To contact the Brandon Jewish
Chavurah, call Stanley and
Sheila Kraus. 689-7204 or Peter
and Renee Roos 689-9236. They
welcome calls from Brandon
residents.

The New Anti-Semitism
Latest reports on the growth of anti-Semitism in
the United States during the previous year are more
than disquieting. But they should not be surprising.
Our own mail bears frequent anti-Semitic
messages to our editorial rooms from perverted
senders. Other pieces of mail bear defacing swastikas
on them, mute testimony to the handiwork of per-
sons along the way, from the innocent sender to our
mailbox, who have managed to deface the mail and
would like to shake us with their hate-filled
messages.
What to do about them? What to do about the
statistics? Silence will not make them go away. Only
knowledge and relentless pursuit of anti-Semites and
anti-Semitism wherever they may be found can deal
with their wicked purpose.
All Those Warnings
All those warnings outgoing Middle East Envoy
Sol Linowitz issued during his farewell trip to Israel
made huge headlines in the press.
Israel must refrain from annexing the Golan
Heights. Israel must refrain from announcing any
more settlements. Israel had best be prepared for
more concessions when the autonomy talks resume
under the Reagan administration. Israel ought to
heed Egyptian President Sadat's warning of his own
that he would take poorly to the prospect of a Reagan
administration tilt toward Israel. And Mr. Reagan
ought to pay attention to that. too.
The warnings have been legion.
Now comes the story of a Linowitz statement that
President Carter's envoy believes Israel has received
no credit worth talking about for all the sacrifices it
has made thus far in the entire Camp David process
in the cause of peace.
Where are the headlines?
Naturally, nowhere.
A Nose for Oil
Wouldn't you know it?
Now, Sen. Charles Percy, who'll be heading the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee when the
Reagan administration takes over on Jan. 20. has
been quoted in Chicago as saying that he does not
support Yasir Arafat as head of Palestinian state.
We understood that he said precisely that in an
interview with Communist Party Chief Leonid
Brezhnev in Moscow. At least, we understood that
until Percy corrected the record about two weeks ago
that he had made his statement not to Brezhnev but
to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko.
Now comes the latest correction of the record. All
that stuff about poor old machinegun-toting Arafat
wanting an eentsy, teentsy. weenie state of his own
to head up and play with, and Percy's agreeing with
Brezhnev that Arafat just ought to have it well,
none of that was correct. Not even in the amended
version (No. 1) that the agreement was with
Gromyko.
In the latest version (No. 2), Percy has told
Chicago Jewish leaders that all he envisioned was
some sort of "Palestinian entity" to be created in the
form of "something less than a state."
By now, who cares? The damage has already been
done. As in all these vicious anti-Israel things in
which politicians and the general press engage these
days, neither truth nor historical accuracy is the
issue.
What is the issue? Well, we've said it a thousand
times in a thousand different ways. In the end, it
always spells oil and, as a good corporation man,
Percy has a sure nose for it.

Hatzeira Inquiry Polarizes Community
ByUZIBENZIMAN
JERUSALEM -
The torrid investigation into
alleged irregularities at the
Ministry for Religious Affairs,
and specifically into the activities
of the Religious Affairs Minister.
Aharon Abu Hatzeira, has
revived almost-forgotten tension
between Ashkenazic and the
Sephardic communities in Israel.
Soon alter the media In-gan
bombarding the public with
major headline stories about the
investigations. Asher Lazimi. a
close friends of Abu Hatzeira.
called a press conference at which
he claimed that the Minister of
Religious Affairs, who is of
Moroccan origin, was being
subjected to discriminatory
procedures stemming from the
very fact that he is Sephardic
Lazimi's "proof" of this
allegation was the police "raid"
on the Ministry of Religious
Affairs, when hundreds of files
were confiscated.
LAZIMI CLAIMED that the
massive confiscation of the
Religious Ministry's documents,
carried out without the prior
approval of wither the Premier or
the Interior Minister, demon-
strated the hostile attitude of the
investigations toward Abu
Hatzeira.
I^azimi's accusations were
followed up by other public
statements and actions that
reflected ethnic solidarity with
Abu Hatzeira
In the Knesset, various
members of different political
parties all of them Oriental
formed an ad hoc lobby. Its aims
seemed to be to express sym-
pathy with the Religious Affairs
Minister and to examine the
possibility of changing the
judicial process in its application
to members of the Knesset.
A group of Sephardic rabbis
met with Prime Minister
Menachem Begin and urged him
to stop the "persecution" of the
Sephardic leadership.
In a number of towns with
large Sephardic communities,
mass receptions were organized
in honor of Abu Hatzeira.
Several Sephardic leaders
from Europe and the U.S. rushed
to Israel to meet Begin and
discuss with him the in-
vestigation and its impact on the
non Ashkenazic population.
Jaques Amir, the Mayor of
Dimona, a member of the Labor
Alignment Knesset faction and
himself of Moroccan origin, called
upon the civil authorities to "cut
down the hand daring
deliberately to hit the esteemed
Abu Hatzeira family Later
Amir denied that he had voiced
this call.
PRESIDENT Yitzhak Navon,
himself a Sephardi. and Begin
immediately reacted to the ethnic-
allegations by calling upon the
Sephardic leadership to stop
them and by assuring the public
that the police had no ethnic
motivations in investigating the I

The specific steps, according to
Galvan, that will be taken in 1981
include "drastically'' modern-
izing the Mexican army, the pro-
duction of remote-controlled
guided missiles and the purchase
of either Israel Kfir or American
F15-F, fighter jets.
The modernization of the
armed forces will be financed by a
Ibudnet of $1,085,000,000, a 38
percent increase over Mexico's
1980 military budget. In real
terms, the increase in spending

Mexico's inflation rate this year

Galvan said.

ol U.S. F-15 fighters visited
Egypt three months ago for

Elect Reagan skirted the issue of
a possible summit meeting be-
tween himself, President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin in an
interview in Time magazine
dealing with U.S. foreign policy
after he takes office next month.
He also was not specific as to
what would constitute an
American "military presence" in
the Middle East but indicated
that the Soviet Union would face
a "possible confrontation" with
the U.S. if it made any "reckless
moves" in that region.
Asked if he planned to follow
Sadat's suggestion of a new
three-way summit meeting,
Reagan replied, "Obviously, I
won't want any retreat there on
the part of our country. I want to
make it plain to both Sadat and
Prime Minister Begin that the
United States does have an
interest in the Middle East. We
should not try to dictate a settle-
ment, but be as helpful as we can
in arriving at a settlement."

BONN The Finance
Ministry has disclosed that 200
shipments of Nazi propaganda
material from abroad were
detected by West German
customs officials last year and
said it was convinced that much
more such material was sent
because the detected shipments
were the result of a limited
number of spot checks made
mainly for statistical reasons.
Replying to a question in the
Bundestag, a Finance Ministry
official said the bulk of the neo-
Nazi material came from the
United States, Canada and
Western European countries.
One shipment contained five
busts of Hitler made in Canada.
The official said the Federal
government intended to co-
operate with other governments
to put a stop to such shipments.
JERUSALEM More visits
to Israel by Egyptian Cabinet
ministers during the next few
weeks will accelerate the pace of
normalization between the two
countries, Israeli officials believe.
Political circles here described
the five-day visit of Egypt's
Minister of Agriculture, Moham-
mad Mahmoud Daoud, as an im-
portant breakthrough in Israeli-
Egyptian relations.
Agriculture Minister Ariel
Sharon will leave for Egypt
shortly to return Daoud's visit,
and Egypt's Minister of Industry
will visit here. According to
political observers, the most sig-
nificant aspect of Daoud's visit
was his meetings in Jerusalem
with President Yitzhak Navon
and Prime Minister Menachem
Begin. Although the Egyptians
stressed that this should not be
construed as recognition of
Israel's sovereignty over united
Jerusalem, Daoud's presence
here in effect ended Egypt's boy-
cott of the Israeli capital.

Bible Distorted
Pope's Encyclical
'Misrepresents'
NEW YORK The
American Jewish Congress
has voiced "surprise and
disappointment" at a
statement in Pope John
Paul Us recent Encyclical
that it says "misrepre-
sents" the Biblical injunc-
tion of "an eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth."
Henry Siegman, executive
director of the Congress, took ob-
jection to a passage in the Pope's
I hi i* in Misericordia. issued on
Dec. 2, which calls the Old Testa-
ment injunction a 'distortion of
justice. He expressed hope that
"the necessary steps will be
taken to clarify and correct this
passage."
IN A LETTER to Monsignor
Jorge Mejia of the Vatican's
Commission for Religious
Relations with the Jews.
Siegman wrote:
"It is with surprise and dis-
appointment that we read a
passage in Pope John Paul IPs
new Encyclical, "Divis in Miseri-
cordia," issued on Dec. 2. which
ascribes to the Old Testament,
sacred to both Jews and
Christians, a "distortion of
justice."
"The passage reads as follows:
'Not in vain did Christ challenge
his listeners, faithful to the doc-
trine of the Old Testament, for
their attitude which was mani-
fested in the words: "an eye for
an eye and a tooth for a tooth."
This was the form of distortion of
justice at that time; and today's
forms continue to be modeled on
it.'
"This passage is entirely in-
consistent with the other
passages in the Encyclical
dealing with the Old Testament
It is also inconsistent with both
the letter and spirit of the
Vatican Guidelines for the
Implementation of Nostra
Aetate' of 1975. which repre-
sented so important an advance
in Catholic-Jewish relations.
THE GUIDELINES urge
that Catholics not set the Old
Testament and the Jewish tradi-
tion founded upon it against
the New Testament in such a way
that the former seems to consti-
tute a religion of only justice, fear
and legalism. with no appeal to
the love of God and neighbor.'
But this is precisely what this
passage seems to do.
"More important, this passage
misrepresents the Judaism of the
time of Jesus, which in fact
understood and interpreted the
Biblical eye for an eye and a
tooth for a tooth' to require
monetary compensation for
injury inflicted on one's fellow
man. Indeed, there is no evidence
that it was ever interpreted in
Judaism to require or to permit
inflicting physical injury. It is
therefore most distressing that
the Encyclical conveys the
impression that lex talionU was
practiced in the Judaism of the
time of Jesus.
"We hope the necessary steps
will be taken to clarify and
correct this passage."
Reagan Won't Have Special
Liaison Officers for Minorities
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA( -
President-Elect Regan will not
have "a Jewish liaison officer" or
such personnel for "Blacks or
other ethnics" after he takes
office, Reagan's transition
director, Edwin Meese III, has
indicated publicly.
Meese was asked, during an
appearance on the CBS-TV pro-
gram "Face the Nation," if the
absence of a Black and "ethnics"
in Reagan's Cabinet "is a signal
that this Administration is not as
interested in their particular
problems as with other
minorities."
Meese replied, "There will be
people representing these groups
in the White House, yes. But
there will not be a single conduit
that all Blacks have to go to this
door, and all Italians have to gt
to this door or any other feeling
like that."
REPORTERS on the TV pro
gram observed that President
Carter has liaison personnel. One
pointed out that he has "an
ethnic liaison person and a Black
liaison, a Jewish liaison and so
forth."
Alfred Moses, of Washington,
is advisor to President Carter on
Jewish matters. He succeeded
Edward Sanders of Los Angeles
who resigned last spring to assist
in Carter's reelection campaign.
Earlier in the Carter Administra-
tion, Robert Lipshutz of Atlanta.
White House Counsel, and Mark
Siegel, a White House aide, per-
formed Jewish liaison functions.
However, representatives of
Jewish organizations frequently
were able to meet with Adminis-
tration officials.
Rabin Follows Peres to
Talks With U.S. Chiefs
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Labor Party chairman Shimon
Peres will meet with top official;
of the outgoing and incoming
Administrations during a 12-day
visit to the U.S.
They include Vice President
Walter Mondale, Vice President
Elect George Bush, Secretary of
State-designate Alexander Haig
and Richard Allen, who will head
the National Security Council.
Peres, who won a substantial
victory over former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin in the leadership
contest at the Labor Party's con
vention last month, was invitee
by the United Jewish Appeal anc
the Israel Bond Organization to
lecture in several American cities.
He is expected to meet with
members of Congress and leaders
of the American Jewish com-
munity.
RABIN, too, will be leaving foi
the U.S., accompanied by his
wife. Leah, at the invitation of
the UJA. They will both deliver
speeches in various parts of the
country.
Peres is expected to discuss the
"Jordanian option" with mem-
bers of the incoming Administra-
tion. He has reportedly kept
abreast of the views of Arab
leaders in the occupied territories
and beyond with respect to in-
volving Jordan in the autonomy
talks. The Labor Party, which
Peres will head in next Novem-
ber's Knesset elections, favors
negotiation with Jordan over the
future of the West Bank.
Rabin is scheduled to appear at
a Washington symposium on
"Israel, the Middle East and the
U.S." initiated by the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith
Allen and Sen. Henry Jackson
(D, Wash.) will also participate.

Sharp Rise in Anti-Semitism
NEW YORK There
was a sharp increase in
assaults and vandalism
against Jewish insti-
tutions, houses of worship,
cemeteries and private
property this year com-
pared to 1979, according to
a nationwide survey con-
ducted annually by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
The findings, which were made
public here by Nathan I'erl
mutter. ADL's national director,
revealed 377 reported anti-
Semitic incidents in 1980 as
against 129 in 1979. These in-
cluded firabombings, swastika
daubing*, anti-Jewish graffiti
and other vandalisms in 29 states
and the District of Columbia.
THE LARGEST number of
incidents. 120. was reported from
New York Slate, with 69 of these
in New York City's five boroughs
apd 39 in Nassau and Suffolk
Counties. New Jersey came next
with 69 reported incidents.
Massachusetts, 34; California.

or mail directed at Jewish insti-
tutions, their officials or private
Jewish citizens that were not
included in the total of ADL's
1980 audit. This class of anti-
Semitic activity has been
separately noted because it was
not part of the 1979 audit, and
there was therefore no basis for
comparison.
"THE SHEER statistics of
anti-Jewish incidents suggest
that there is a high quotient of
anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish
hostility which still exists just
beneath the surface of American
life," the A 1)1,official declared.
The audit was based on reports
from ADL's regional offices
acroaa the country. The data
received by ADL indicated that
20 persons were arrested or
apprehended in 11 of the total of
37" incidents. Of these. 14 were
aged 1" or under.
Two of those arrested in
connection with a fire at a Jewish
temple in Loa Angeles were 24
and 35 years of age and wed
linked by police to the neo-Naal
National Socialist American!
Workers Party. The Ix>s Angeles
episode was the only one in which
charges were brought against

THE INCREASE in the nu>|
ber of tabulated incidents in 1980
may stem partly Irom improved [

last year's audit, which revealed]
129 anti-Semitic episodes is
against 49 in 1978. As a result of
making those findings public, the |

a greater tendency for victims to

Barbara and Gary Alter enjoyed having lots of family
visiting over the recent holidays. In for a couple of weeks from
school was their eldest daughter, Carol, who is a senior in Pre-
med at (ieorge Washington University in D.C. Since she has
been away at school since Barbara and Gary moved to Tampa,
this is still a new city to her with lots of sights, places, and
people to meet and enjoy. Also, daughter Karen and her fiance
Jack Snyder visited from Columbia, South Carolina. Karen will
be attending the University of South Carolina as a business
major, beginning this month. In addition, completing the Alter
family get-together were Gary's mother and his aunt from
SleulHiiville, Ohio Mrs. Shirley Alter and Miss Esther
Fisher. We hope that your holidays were happy ones and that
the New Year brings you all lots of good health, joy, and con-
tentment.
Lauren Harris and Ami Hirshorn report that Congregation
Kol Ami's Kadima recently held its third meeting at the home of
Allison Berger. Everyone there participated in the fun of having
their own "Gong Show." Though each person had an act to
present, we hear that Allison's really took the cake. For lack of
anything belter, Allison got out her Howdy Doody doll and
described him to the audience from his floppy arms down to his
pants that won't stay on! Listen, compared to some of the talent
I liase seen on the real "Gong Show," the Howdy Doody ex-
planation sounds like one of the more talented acts to appear!
Well, the important thing is that the kids had fun and that these
meetings of young people with common commitments continue
to thrive.
SchaMtUvoga Novoko Coda Warn! That's a transliteration
of Happy New Year to You! in Russian. According to the
Uussian Resettlement Volunteers Newsletter published through
Tampa Jewish Social Service, there have been 65 Soviet Jewish
immigrants resettled in Tampa. That's a long way from a
program which resettled seven people its first year, 1976. Con-
gratulations Ui all the volunteers in this program, the Social
Svrv ice which supervises it and the Tampa Jewish Federation
which sponsors it!

Congregation Kol Ami's
Sunday Brunch Chavurah will
meet Jan. 10 from 10:15 to 11:45
at the home of Mimi and Alan
Aaron. This month's discussion
topic will be the recent intrusion
of religious factions into political
issues.
A freewheeling discussion is
planned which will center on the
propriety of religious groups
endorsing political positions and
candidates, and the effect such
endorsements may have on the
Jewish and non-Jewish com-
munities.
Dr. Helene Silverman, Kol
Ami's Education Chairwoman,
said "the purpose of these
monthly meetings is to provide a
forum for informal education
within the congregation. They
are timed to allow parents of
Religious School children to
participate with ease. The
sessions meet during school
hours." These brunches have
always been popular with the
congregation and more meetings
will be announced shortly.

Why do we need health planning? Why do we need
regulations in the health delivery field? Why is it so difficult to
find a good nursing home? At the December meeting of the
Sisterhood of Congregation Schaarai Zedek. Edward Perrine,
Executive Director of the Florida Gulf Health Systems Agency,
and Adrianne Sundheim, president of the Florida Gulf Health
Systems Agency, answered these questions and more at the
luncheon meeting.
Ilelath Systems Agencies review and advise of plans of
your health services. The HSA lobbies in Tallahassee for
legislation, and conducts workshops, seminars, and educational
forums in health-related fields. In addition, HSA task forces
probe into community health problems. As a result of HSA
el forts, the Emergency Medical Services in Pinellas County has
lieen a success. Sisterhood is proud that several members of the
congregation serve on these boards and task forces. Adrianne
Sundheim is serving her third term as president of this agency.
In addition to a delicious lunch. Sisterhood members en-
joyed a most stimulating and interesting talk by Mr. Perrine
and Mrs. Sundheim.
Meet Lee and David Wallace who moved to Lutz about one
year ago after a year in Seminole. Lee and David are originally
Irom Massachusetts. They lived in Randolph, Mass., for 20
years before migrating to Florida (towards the beautiful
weather) for health reasons. Lee is a secretary at the VA
Hospital. Though Dave is medically retired now, he worked as a
sales supervisor for the largest Jewish bakery in New England
Kasanof s (this is the bakery featured in the Cliff Robertson
movie "Charlie"). The Wallaces have three children Sandy,
who is in real estate and insurance in Holbrook, Mass.; Arthur,
who is a music teacher in the Public School system in Brockton,
Mass., and Howard, who is a sophomore at the University of
South Florida. Dave has joined the Brotherhood of Congre-
gation Schaarai Zedek. The Wallaces really enjoy staying at
home but when they do go out they enjoy attending the theatre.
We welcome you to Tampa.

Giant is a Prisoner of Extremism
Continued from Page 1

in Palestine and vigorously
implemented by it.
THE ABSORPTION of the
two principal UN instrumentali-
ties on the single issue of Israel
and the Palestine Arabs at a
critical moment in history under-
lines the failure of the United
Nations to serve the purpose for
which it was created to safe-
guard peace and security in the
world, to fight hunger and famine
and to help improve the lot of the
inhabitants of this earth.
As the two deliberative bodies
of the United Nations which we
like to consider the Parliament of
Man, were diddling their time
away in rancorous criticism ol
Israel, at least a dozen conflicts
were in progress on the face of the
globe men, women and childrer
were being killed, towns anc
cities destroyed and destruction
and devastation spread.
Most of these wars were Ux
distant or too complex to rati
time on the 6 p.m. news; few o)
them probably even reached the
Security Council and, if they did,
were probably disposed of in a
consensus statement telling the
parties involved to get together
and resolve their differences
without bothering the UN.
WE TEND to ignore all wars
as we tend to ignore all unpleas-
ant situations unless they force
themselves upon us. We cannot
ignore the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan because it may be a
prelude to a Soviet push into the
Middle East which might deprive
us of the oil for which we are so
hungry.
We cannot ignore the Iraqi
invasion of Iran which has
already reduced the world's oil
supplies and will hit us hard very
soon when we have to pay a
nickel a gallon more for gas
because OPEC took advantage of
the situation to raise prices. And
we dare overlook the possibility
of So let move into Poland
because we do not know what
might develop out of that.
Some of us may b'' outraged by
some of the. wars going on. like
the Vietnamese extermination
campaign in Cambodia or
Qadaffi's cynical destruction of
the Chadian state, but we know
that the United Nations isn't
going to do anything aobut them.
Sin.e the days of Trygve Lie and
Oag Hammarskjold. the United
Nations has no power, no
authority and no prestige It is
able to function only when the
United States and the Soviet
Union agree on the desired ends
and that is not often.
WHATEVER the great hope;
that led to the creation of tht
Unilid Nut ions and the few. very
few. times that it has nobly ri
to the occasion its vote for the
creation of the State ol Israel was
one of its few great moments
the United Nations today is a be-
fuddled, mindless giant, consti-
tutionally incapable of taking
decisive action, crippled by the
cynicism with which most of its
members regard it and ham-
strung by a large, growing and
incompetent bureaucracy that
has made it the greatest boon-
doggle in the world.
To all intents and purposes, it
has been taken over by elements
which have made it the chief
advocate of the terrorist Pales-
tine Liberation Organization and
the United Nations itself, the
world's most significant font of
anti-Semitism.
There is no debate in the
United Nations except, perhaps,
on trivial or non-political issues.
Its halls resound with invective,
calumny and denunciation, the
argets of which are Israel, the
lewish people and the United
Jtates the latter for refusing

best, passive and acquiescent.
Few states and statesmen dare promise that the United Nations
risk the wrath of the oil sheiks.
The United Nations is not the
world forum it was set up to be; it
is an arena, a bear-pit. and
nothing else. Its agencies, which
have performed creditably in the
past have, with the exception of
UNICEF, the children's agency.
been hopelessly politicized and
leaser forums for endless anti-
Israel diatribes and bitter attacks
on the United States for not com-
pelling Israel to commit suicide.
The great powers use the
instrument of the United Nations
when it is to their advantage and
ignore it at all other times For
the small countires. the General
\ssembly is a bargain basement.
The underdeveloped countries
trade off their support to the
\tal>s against Israel in the hopes
..I getting a break on oil.
The black African stales, most
ol them hungry and under-
developed, give their vi te to the

Communist bloc supports and
encourages all of them in their

THE LIBYAN assault on
Chad may change thi^ constella-
tion. Some African leaders may
come to see ii as a Soviet-backed
Arab attack on black Alrica and
conclude that th- \ra!>s are not
Iriends and allies of the black
nations. This realization may
have been reflected in the General
Assembly vote on sanctions
against Israel since the Arabs
received fewer votes than t!
resolutions customarily receive
The black Africans ma) also con-
clude that the attack on Chad is a
Soviet-Arab move to got com-
plete control of the uranium ore
deposits said to exist under the
sands of the northern Chadian
desert.
But a change in the UN voting
pattern such as this might in-
volve, does not alter the funda-
mental character of the United
Nations nor correct its glaring
faults.
The American taxpayer who
underwrites the farce on the East
River to the tune of $800 million a
year would consider it a worth-
while investment for the main-
tenance of peace. A "Committee
for UN Integrity," its member-
ship drawn from the academic,
arts and science communities of
the Western world and including
a score of Nobel prizemen, has
been established to seek this
needed reform.
ITS MANIFESTO, in the form
of a "Call to Conscience,'
declares that The United
Nations is no longer the guardian
of social justice, human rights
and equality among nations.
Indeed, perverted by irrelevant

U.S.-made marine engines
to Fiat of Italy for instal-
lation in four frigates the
Italian firm has contracted
to build for the Iraqi navy.
Kosenthal stated his intention
in the course of his disclosure of a
report to him from the General
Accounting Office (GAOI that
revealed, he said, "a serious
failure of coordination" between
the Department of State and the
Department of Commerce when
the General Electric Co., manu-
facturer of the engine cores,
applied for a license to export
them to Fiat.
THE CRUCIAL role of the
White House in the engine sale is
apparent from a close reading of
the report," Rosenthal said,
(ieneral Electric shipped two
engines to Italy but, on State
Department instructions not to
export the others in the $11
million deal, it put them in
storage.
The GAO review, initiated at
Kosenthal's request last Sept. 19.
said thai though the engines, in
Kosenthal's words, "clearly were
for military purposes and were
destined for one of four nations
which President Carter had, a
month earlier, identified as
supporters of international
terrorism," the Policy and
Planning Division of the Depart-
ment of Commerce approved
General Electric's application for
an export license, seeing "no
reason to refer to other agencies."
Rosenthal said that "at no
time" did the Commerce Depart-
ment advise the State Depart-
ment's appropriate political
offices of the license application
approval.
According to the GAU,
Rosenthal said, Italian Prime
Minister Francisco Cossiga had
asked then Secretary of State
Cyrus, Vance about General
Electric's application for a license
and "the Secretary had replied
after some checking with
whom it is not known that the
license was approved."
HOUSE AND Senate protests
against the export of the engines,
Rosenthal said, went unanswered
until Aug. 11 when Rosenthal
mi informed by the State
Department that "the Italian
government had made the sale of
the engines an importa.it issue
between Italy and the U.S. for
both political and economic
reasons."

Abram Urges New View
Of UNations' Actuality
NEW YORK Morris B. Abram has told a meeting
of the National Council of Jewish Women at its national
headquarters here that "v^ would be doing the UN a
favor" if the U.S. stopped simply applauding the United
Nations just because the ideal on which it was based is
great.
ABRAM TOLD the women's organization that more
attention should now be focused on just what the UN
actually is.
Abram, a prominent lawyer, former president of
Brandeis University, and a former U.S. representative to
the UN Commission on Human Rights, made his remarks
in response to a question regarding the increased
politicization of UN-sponsored meetings and the probable
violation of its own charter in this regard.
Begin Cabinet Wiggles Out
Of New Test of Strength
JERUSALEM The controversial demand by Israel's
teachers for increases in wages of up to 60 percent nearly
toppled the slender ruling majority and government of
Prime Minister Menachem Begin on Sunday.
Israel's 60,000 teachers be excluded from the austerity
promptly called for protest
meetings at the same time
that Finance Minister Yigal
Hurvitz demanded that the
teachers stick to his new
austerity budget, and that
otherwise he would quit.
Zevulun Hammer, Minister of
Education, promptly declared
that if the teachers' demands
were not met, he would quit, too.
The new pay plan would increase
the salary of teachers with a
college degree and nine years of
teaching experience from $480 to
$630 a month. The current na-
tional average is $630.
THE LATEST DEMANDS
came on the heels of a panel that
sutdied teachers' demands after a
major strike lasting 52 days two
years ago. Should the teachers
decide to strike again, they may
well succeed in toppling the
Begin coalition.
Facing the Hurvitz-Hammer
double-barrelled threat, the
Cabinet Sunday said neither yes
nor no to the teachers' demands.
Instead, it set up a committee to
study the pay sttruggle. The
decision to sidestep the issue
gives Prime Minister Begin only
a temporary respite.
Not only is his coalition threat-
ened by the teachers' demand to
budget, but there is strong
pressure being brought to bear on
the Cabinet following the minis-
ters' rallying Sunday to yet
another issue the cause of
Interior Minister Yosef Burg.
BURG IS being charged with
having put a damper on the
investigation into his firing last
week of Police Chief Herzl Shafir
after Burg accused Shafir of
turning Israel into "a police
state," whose crime-fighting
methods are considered exces-
i sively stringent by some critics.
The Cabinet has unanimously
endorsed the Shafir firing, but
Yossi Sarid, an Opposition Mem-
ber of Parliament, has declared
that Burg ordered Shafir to wait
until after the general elections
scheduled for next Novembe
before pressing for his invest iga
i tion into still other alleged ir-
regularities in Burg's ministry
involving Abu Hatzeira, who is
under suspicion that he has chan-
neled public funds for religious
nstitutions.
Hurvitz has threatened to quit
the Begin coalition if the Cabinet
accedes to the teachers' demands.
He has declared that the line
must be held against th< 131 per-
cent inflation rate that scored a
record high in 1980 and that
teachers are no exception to his
anti- inflation rule.


Wiener Library Moves to Tel Aviv University
By ELISSA ALLERHAND
TEL AVIV Even as Europe
has bean witnessing a new wave
of neo-Nazi and anti-Semite
t*mr, the Wiener Library,
widely considered the world's
ding and most comprehensive
center of literature and informa-
tion on anti-Semitism, the Holo-
caust, and Fascism, has been
moved to TeJ Aviv University,
expanding substantially the
number and scope of users of the
La>rary and affording a new
boost to the study of a subject
which again and still demands
world-wide attention and alarm.
The Library, which has been
called a chamber of horrors."
reflects only too concretely and
substantively the growth,
astoundingly monstrous
dimensions. and insidiously
systematic methodology that
calculated and organized anti-
Semitism can reach.
THE LIBRARY comprises
over 60.000 books, reference
works. pamphlets and
periodicals: one million
newspaper clippings; 1.500 eye-
witness accounts of Nazi per-
secution from diaries, un-
published memoirs and in-
terviews: 40.000 documents
relating to the 13 Nuremberg
Trials and the Etchmann Trials:
the vast Protocols of the Elders
ofZion literature: dossiers on war
criminals, and about 5.000
documents relating to the Jewish
question from the records of the
Gestapo, the Chancellery of the
Nazi Party, and the German
Foreign Office.
In addition, the Library also
includes an extensive collection
of literature on social, economic
and political aspects of modern
Jewry and continues to advance
the dual directions of collating
information on present day anti-
Semitic manifestations as well as
on modern day Jewish com-
munity developments. Subject
matter includes such categories
as international problems since
1945. East-West relations,
human rights, communist anti-
Semitism, neo- Nazism. neo-
Faseism, Arab propaganda
offices. minorities. refugees.
Jewish institutions and
organizations, as well as ex-
pansion of its original topics of
Nazism and anti-Semitism.
The collection was established
in the autumn of 1933 in Amster-
dam by Dr. Alfred Wiener, a Ger-
man Jewish scholar, journalist.
bibliophile, and man of affairs,
who recognized the early Nazi
phenomena for what they were
and devoted himself to collecting
thorough documentation, making
it known to the outside world,
combatting the Nazi machine,
and recording for history proof of
the otherwise incredible horror as
well as the lessons to be learned.
When it became dangerous for
the library to remain in Amster-
dam, it was moved in 1939 to
London, where it opened, co-
incidental] y. on the day that the
war broke out. It has remained in
London since then and has
developed into an extensive and
respected research and infor-
mation center, for several
decades headed by Dr. Alfred
Wiener, who died in 1964. and
whose director today is Prof.
Waiter Laqueur. a distinguished
scholar who is also on the faculty
of Tel Aviv University.
CONSIDERED a unique and
authoritative source of material,
the Library was intensively used
during World War II. in fact,
practically taken over by the
British Ministry of Information.
The success of BBC counter
propaganda derived largely from
its solid grounding in the
comprehensive and reliable in-
formation that had been gathered
by Dr. Wiener.
The Library's resources have
been used during and since the
War by the British. US. and
Allied Governments: the United
States War Crimes Committee in
preparation for the Nuremberg
Trials; by legal authorities and
courts: by the news media; by
scholars and research students
from all over the world; and by
prominent authors on the sub-
ject. The Library has been of-
ficially commended by the
British Government and by the
U.S. Libary of Congress, and Dr.
\N lener received the Grand Cross
from German President Theodor
Heuss. Dr. Wiener had at-
tempted repeatedly during his
lifetime to have the Library
moved to Israel. A complete copy
in microfilm of all documents will
remain in London.
Among the many sobering
items in the Library that serve as
a stark and chilling reminder of
the lengths to which Nazi
propagandists were prepared to
take their precepts was a
children's game called Juden
Raus! ("Jews Out!), the object
of which was to round up Jews,
pawns wearing Medieval Jewish
hats, as quickly as possible for
elimination.
Dinitz Says
Haig is an Old Friend of Israel
ByHUGHORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Simcha Dinitz. Israel's
former Ambassador to the
United States, described
U.S. Secretary of State-
designate Gen. Alexander
Haig as a friend of Israel
who had shown sympathy
for Israels case in nego-
tiations with the U.S.
about the freeing of the
Egyptian Third Army
when it was entrapped near
the Suez Canal during the
Yom Kippur War.
Speaking on an Israel Radio
interview. Dinitz said that Haig s
intervention prevented a crisis in i
Israel-US. relations at that time.
"Gen. Haig always showed a
keen understanding of Israel's
security needs and posture- im-
mediately after the war. when the
bte Golda Meir (then Israeli
Premier! came to Washington
and had some very tough talks
with the President and especially
with Dr. Kissinger the subject
matter was the freeing of the
Egyptian Third Army from
Israeli forces then surrounding it
the conversation ended not in
any very great accord. It was
Gen. Haig who intervened at the
very end of the talks with a view
to improve the situation and
showed a great understanding
toward us. to prevent a crisis."
Dinitz said.
HAIG WAS serving at the
time as a deputy to Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger
Dinitz said Israel could expect
President-Elect Reagan to con-
tinue President Carter's policies
towards the Camp David accords
and the autonomy negotiations
as there is always a basic con-
tinuity of policy after changes in
the U.S. administration. But he
warned Israelis not to be sur-
prised if there were some changes
in emphasis once the new ad-
ministration settles in.
I must caution that while
every succeeding administration
undertakes what the previous one
has implemented, especially in
foreign policy, we have to under-
stand that within the same
framework different policy and
different emphasis can take
place." he said.
Dinitz said the new adminis-
tration would, for the first time,
seek a solution to the Palestinian
question apart from the Palestine
Liberation Organization.

West Bank Settlements

The New York mayor said he
thought the world had not been
made sufficiently aware of the
price Israel was ready to pay for
peace. "One of the problems is
that Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat is a very personable and
articulate person who makes a
great impression. But Prime
Minister Begin is a righteous
prophet in the Biblical sense, and
historically nobody has ever liked
a prophet look at Jeremiah."
Koch said. "Begin knows ha is

By GIL SEDAN
AND HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Former Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan is continuing
to press his view that Israel
should unilaterally imple-
ment its autonomy plan on
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, a proposal rejected
by the Knesset last week
when he presented it as an
agenda motion.
During a television interview,
Dayan contended that the auto-
nomy talks between Israel,
Egypt and the U.S. have reached
a dead end. He also hinted that
the West Bank mayors would
accept autonomy even though
they oppose it publicly and insist
on nothing less than a Pales-
tinian state.
"The achievements during 18
i months of talks have been very
small even if you use a powder
puff to cover up the faults,"
Dayan said. "The Palestinian
Arabs and the Jordanians will
not join the negotiations."
, HE SUGGESTED instead

The 1980 list also includes the United Nations,
j "because the sounds emanating from its General I
Assembly are clear evidence that there is, indeed,
I life after death."
The November elections were cited "because in i
a world in which so many nations are ruled by j
assassins, themselves the successors of assasins,
or by winners of single-name balloting, tljei
American elections are an exquisite example of I
the tedium and the excitement, the hype and the
authenticity, the small despairs and the big hopes
of democracy."
The Rue Copernic bombing was included
"because the explosion was heard around the
world, its reverberations serving as a reminder j
that anti-Semitism remains a violent, scourging,
clear and present danger."

Helen Suzman, M.P., has been tendered a lun-
cheon in her honor by the Executive Board of the
New York Board of Rabbis. Mrs. Suzman, who
for many years was the only voice heard in the
South African Parliament raised against the
government's official policy of racial apartheid,
was feted by the Board "for the years of leader-
ship she has provided to the cause of human
rights in the Republic of South Africa."

comed Mrs. Suzman and presented her with an

duced Mrs. Suzman.
Israel must double its gross national product so
that its economic strength may match its military
might, the chairman of the Knesset Security
Committee, Moshe Arens, told the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations.
In a briefing to the Conference following a two-
week visit to the United States, during which he
met with Congressional leaders of both parties, as
well as with members of the Reagan transition
team, Arens said it was "essential for Israel to
take advantage of its strong economic potential."
"We have the talent to double our GNP from
$3,500 per person to $8,000 per person," Arens
said. "But to achieve this goal, which would
enable us to be as strong economically as we are
militarily, we need greater economic assistance
from the United States, more support from
American Jews and stepped-up investment of
American companies in Israeli industry."
B'nai B'rith Women has called for stringent
new national gun control measures to control the
rising crime rate in our country and the use of
weapons by dangerous individuals.
The renewed plea from the Jewish women's
service organization, with over 120,000 members
throughout the U.S. and Canada, came in the
wake of the fatal shootings of noted Washington
physician and author Dr. Michael Halberstam
and rock musician John I^nnon.
that Israel withdraw its forces on
the West Bank and Gaza to the
locations specified at Camp
David and that local government
be handed over to the elected
ipayors.
"The mayors and Arab leaders
with whom I have met intimated
to me publicly they will continue
to claim that my proposals do not
satisfy them. They will say they
do not want crumbs, that they
want a Palestinian state with
Israeli recognition of the Pales-
tinian state with Israeli recog-
nition of the Palestine Liberation
Organization." Dayan said.
"But the impression I received
with all of those I have talked to
was that if we can negotiate
properly, we can reach an agree-
ment on implementation of my
plan," Dayan stated. He declined
to name the Arab personalities
with whom he had spoken but
said they were forced to oppose
his plan in public and to publicly
support the PLO. "They were all
elected to their present offices
and are allowed to perform
responsible municipal functions.
There is therefore no other forum
with whom Israel can discuss
local self-rule," Dayan said.
KBG Breaks Up Jewish
Study Groups in Moscow
NEW YORK The National
Conference on Soviet Jewry has
released information just
received that in Moscow on Dec.
9, eight KGB officers, two in
uniform and six plainclothesmen,
and a woman representing the
Moscow municipality, forced
their way into a Jewish studies
group being conducted by long-
term refusenik Ilya Essas.
The group was threatened with
the accusation of holding an
"illegal" religious gathering, and
was told they could be indicted
for "violating laws on Separation
of Church and State and of
Church and School." The names
of those present were recorded by
the security forces.
THOSE WITHOUT their
internal passports were taken
into custody, but released after
their identities were confirmed.
Before leaving, the officers con-
fiscated books of Jewish content,
including a copy of the Qemorah,
published in Russian before the
Revolution.
The 34-year-old Essas, who has
been a refusenik since 1973, and
whose parents are in Israel,
expressed "great concern" about
this new turn of events.
In a related act of harassment,
on the morning of Dec. 16, the
KGB entered an informal nursery
school for refusenik children and
ordered all present to leave. They
said the premises were to be
closed until the evening.
Hebrew self-study groups,
which have functioned for years,
have also become the target of
the KGB. Informal study groups
taught by veteran refuseniks Yuli
Kosharovsky, Vladimir Shak-
hnovsky and Lev Gorodetsky
were recently disrupted, and the
participants also threatened with
prosecution.
ACCORDING to Burton S.
Levinson, NCSJ chairman,
"Soviet authorities, having
moved to virtually halt emi-
gration, seem to be organizing
what could be a major crackdown
against those who wish to study
Jewish culture and religion. They
want to discourage such efforts.
It would appear that the USSR is
hardening its attitudes towards
Jewish activists, an effort which
demands the attention of public
and official opinion in other
countries."
