Jews Warned
Of Tampa
Tampa, Florida Friday, May 29, 1981

Weigh' Your Opposition To AWACS
I(JTA) A high Pentagon
official is warning Ameri-
can Jews to "weigh" their
opposition to the sale of
sophisticated weapons to
Saudi Arabia against the
broader interest of Ameri-
can support for a strong
i Israel.
Speaking at a luncheon session
I on the opening day of the two-
,|,i v 22nd annual policy confer-
ence of the American Israel Pub-
I lie Affairs Committee (AIPAC),
Fred Ickle, Undersecretary of
Defense for Policy, said that the
proposed sale of AWACS re-
oonnaissanoe planes and en-
hancement equipment for F-15
fighter planes to the Saudis was
"part and parcel of the policy to
increase stability in the Middle
BUT WHEN he completed his
speech, Bernice Tannenbaum, an
AIPAC official and a former
Hadassah president, said the
members of AIPAC felt that the
"entire Saudi package does not
enhance stability in the Middle
At one point in his talk, Ickle,
who is also a member of Inter-
bureaucratic AWACS Task
Force, implied that at various
times only parts of the arms sales
package were objected to and
that members of AIPIC, in par-
ticular, only opposed the
AWACS. But members of his au-
dience immediately shouted,
"No, no, the whole package."
Ickle urged the audience to
withhold judgment until the
Reagan Administration com-
pletes the proposal for the sale of
the AWACS and the F-15 en-
hancement equipment, a position
that the Administration has also
been urging on Congress. He said
once the details are announced,
the members of the AIPAC
might still oppose the sale but he
promised, "You'll have plenty of
time to make your views heard."
ICKLE SAID that the U.S.
main concern in the Middle East
was the Soviet threat there and
the attempt by the USSR to
drive the U.S. from the region. In
addition, he stressed that Saudi
Arabia needs the military equip-
ment to protect its oil fields from
threats that could come from
Iraq, Iran, South Yemen or other
nearby areas.
But Ickle declared that the
Reagan Administration was
pledged to maintain Israel's
qualitative military edge in the
region and to improve Israel's
economy. He said President Rea-
gan considered Israel a strategic
asset and that the Ad-
ministration wanted Israel to
continue the effort for peace
started by the Camp David
But he stressed it would not be
a peace "dictated" by the United
States, "certainly not by the
Soviet Union" and "above all,
"not a peace treaty on terms
dictated by terrorist or-
ganizations and in particular the

Combined Annual Meeting
Autonomy Offer
Ebon Wants Arab Dialogue
Former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban offered the Palestinian
people a dialogue and urged full
autonomy for them on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip but firmly
rejected any Israeli negotiations
with the Palestine Liberation
Our stand is clear: No to the
I'l.O. yes to the moderate Pales-
tinians." Eban told a group of
political reporters here Sunday to
whom he spelled out the differ-
ences between Labor Alignment
policies and those of the Likud-
led government.
Eban, who many expect will be
named Foreign Minister should
Labor win the June 30 Knesset
elections, agreed on at least one
point with Likud hawk Moshe
Arens. chairman of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
ARENS SAID Sunday that
the outcome of the Palestine
National Council conference in
Damascus and the resolutions it
adopted proved the futility of the
European view that the Palestine
Liberation Organization was
moderating its position.
Eban said that the sharply
worded anti-Israel resolutions in
Damascus proved that Israel was
correct in objecting to the Euro-
pean Economic Community's
(EEC) Middle East initiative
which calls for PLO "associa-
tion" in the peace process.
He asserted that "Europe has
not shown any rigor in its
dialogue with the Palestinians.
Instead of according recognition
to the PLO on the basis of the
"LO's extremist policies, at-
titudes and tactics! the European
community should have refused
any such recognition. It should
have argued that its refusal was
based upon the unacceptable
ideology and terrorist policy of
the PLO. Therefore, Europe has
undermined its own bargaining
Power if it ever wants to bring
about a change in the Palestinian
FOREIGN Ministry circles
said last week that they had been
told by certain European
countries which they decliried to
name that the outcome of the Da-
mascus conference would
"surprise Israel" by its modera-
tion. Arens said that the anti-
Israel resolutions that emerged
from the Damascus gathering
should surprise no one.
He suggested that the Damas-
cus conference might have
provided "a lesson for some of
the European community, or for
the British who have seemed to
be living under the delusion or
illusion that the PLO could
moderate its position, that it was
only a matter of being nice to
them ..."
Eban told reporters that the
gap between Labor and Likud
was wider than that between any7
opposition and coalition
anywhere in the Western world.
"The choice is between a line
which makes Israel breathe into
her lungs a million and a quarter
Arabs, despite their will, and the
line which refrains from returning
to the pre-1967 borders but
without imposing Israel's per ma
net rule." He called for speedy re-
sumption of the autonomy talks
with Egypt, with the aim of
granting the Palestinians full
BEYOND that, Eban said, the
principle of territorial com-
promise should be added as
another option on top of the
Camp David agreements. He
rejected criticism of Labor's
proposed "Jordanian option" on
grounds that Jordan has shown
no sign of wanting to negotiate
with Israel. "One cannot expect
an Israeli political party to tailor
its political platform according to
the wishes of an Arab country,"
Eban said.
He added, however, that the
Palestinian problem cannot be
solved without taking into con-
sideration the position of factors
east of the Jordan River, just as
one cannot reach a peace
arrangements with Jordan
without solving the Palestinian
problem. Eban observed that a
position of territorial compromise
would be more readily accepted
by world public opinion than the

Hope Expressed For Mutti-National Force
(JTA) Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir believes an
agreement is possible in
Cairo between the United
States, Israel and Egypt on
the multinational force to
police Sinai after Israel's
withdrawal is completed
next April. Shamir said the
parties "will try perhaps to

complex negotiations on the
multinational force.

in the days ahead." He said
Israel and Egypt were "both pro-
ceeding in a constructive spirit
... I find that both aides desire
to proceed with these negotia-
tions quite independently of re-
gional developments whether in
Lebanon or anywhere else."
Sterner said he was "very
pleased" with what had been
achieved to date, in his two days
of talks here and in earlier meet-
ings he held in Cairo. These
included a two-hour session with
President Anwar Sadat Sunday.
Sterner will head the American
team in the tripartite talks at the
Mena House Hotel in Cairo.
Israel's delegation will be chaired
by Foreign Ministry Director
Genral David Kimche, and the
Egyptians will be led by Foreign
Ministry Undersecretary Osama
El-Baz, a key figure throughout
the peace process. The Israeli and
Egyptian teams will include mili-
tary men and legal aides.

Among the problems that this
raises are: discipline within the

Sterner was reluctant to
discuss details of the negotia-

Blossom Leibowitz, chairman of the Russian Resettlement
Program for Tampa Jewish Social Services, reports that last
month, through the hard work and ferverent interest of a
number of individuals, over one-half of the Soviet Jewish com-

English and in Russian. Through this moving experience, many
were able to learn the history and symbolism of the Passover
celebration, an insight, for some, never before experienced.

chairman Sarah Pullaro. Working' with Sarah and Juliet were
enthusiastic residents including Bert Green, who was in charge
of table decorations, Syd, Fridkin, Mandy DeJesus, Helen
Adams. Helen Males, Gert Kern, Jack Shunter, and Freda

preciation, for the many staff and volunteers who work con-
stantly and diligently to make the Jewish Towers the most
successful residence that it is, through presenting tokens of
recognitiion. In addition, the marvelous singing group, The
Towerettes, entertained at the reception. It was indeed a

prelude to that Apocalyptic mo-
ment when the Torah Decalogue
became the possession of man;
when the domain of Heaven
merged with the dominion of
man, in an eternal and in-
dissoluble bond. I mean when the
Jewish People really experienced
"Gilluy Shechina," revellation of
G-d, the highest peak which man
can reach.
Too few of us have paused long
enough to comprehend the fullest
meaning of the word Revelation.
To reveal, means, to uncover that
which is hidden. We see it with
our eyes. But to reveal also
means to tell something im-
portant to another person. We
hear it with our ears and under-
stand it with our minds. And
thus, the Torah described in
simple yet pulsatory words em-
braced by all religions and by all
nations in the world. Its rever-
beration has been felt for thou-
sands of years while the worlds'
future shall depend on mankinds'
adherence of these hallowed in-
Following Israels' reply of
"Naaseh YNishma We shall do
and shall hearken," we behold the
following: "V'chol Ha-Am Roim
ee H-akolos-And All the people
saw the thunderous voice."
Strange you may say. But Israel
experienced with their eyes, that
which others experience only
with their ears. Furthermore,
they understood with their minds
that which others see only with
their eyes. So you must under-
stand, that to see and to hear
Revelation, is a unique and
blessed plateau of religious
experience and of spiritual
achievement. For to recognize
and to understand that is a
revelation of G-d is indeed the
ecstatic peak of religious ex-
perience and of religious grati-
fication. It is no longer a faith
with doubts and uncertainty, hut
the faith that is based on cer-
tainty, love and confidence.
Once Israel received the Torah,
as a real historical experience,
with the physical senses of seeing
and hearing, there could be no
uncertainty about its validity or
binding nature. No matter, that
later cynics, agnostics and
atheists doubt the historicity of
this event. No matter, that
anthropologists weave fanciful
(ales about the narrative of the
Torah and its laws. No matter,
that Bible critics behold scripture
as a mere patchwork of the
writings of unknown authors
from unknown places, religious
Jews fervently declare "Yisroel
YOrysay Chad IIu" Israel and
its sacred Torah are one. (as G-d
is One)
Israel's commitment to the
Torah for more than three thou-
sand years is more than sufficient
proof of its historical truth. And
the Torah validates our very
survival. We bear witness to the
events of history, and history
bears witness to the eternal
reality of Israel. The History of
the Jewish people is not a fanciful
tale. It is not a myth, but a series
of real events-punctuated by the
Hand of G-d which reappears
ever so often to validate theis
Covenant of Old.
Imagine, a student of history
some 500 years hence, who will
read a factual account of Israels
1948 War of Independence, of the
1956 confrontation, and of the
historic torrid week of Shavouth
in 1967. Can you really imagine
his reaction to the account of the
Six Day War? Perhaps he and
others will say that it just could
not have happened that way.
la this a figment romantic
imagination? Was it possible that
one little country against the
apparent whole world? An army
of 100,000 against an array of
millions of Arab soldiers? A tiny
nation of two and half million
against seven countries whose
combined population was more
than forty million. Perhaps
historians and anthropologists
will try to disect these events at-
tributing them to myths,
imaginations, and cultural reli-
gious deceptions imposed on
Well, it did happen as did the
tragic Holocaust. But, alas, the'
world looked on aghast at best. It
did happen in our time, and were
a witness while we remained
silent. None came to Israels' aid,
though all spoke of peace feebly.
I do not think it will take 500
years before these events are
forgotten. Some of them are
already disputed as well as even
refuted to their truth. Perhaps,
we shall be lucky if our children
and grandchildren will also
believe our stories. Already there
are some who assume that the
atrocities of World War II and
Israel's Yom Kippur War are
grossly exaggerated.

No War Unless We're

(JTA) Premier Mena-
chem Begin said that Israel
would not go to war against
Syria unless Israel is at-
tacked. He made that re-
mark in an address to a war
veterans rally shortly after
a meeting-with U.S. special
envoy Philip Habib who re-
turned to Israel after
further talks in Damascus
and in Riyadh, Saudi
Arabia in his continuing ef-
fort to resolve the Israeli-
Syrian missile crisis.
Emerging from his meeting
with Habib, Begin gave reporters
the impression that the crucial
moment is at hand. He said he
would "convene the appropriate
authorities" meaning ap-
parently the Cabinet or the
Ministerial Defense Committee
to take "the appropriate
decisions." It was inferred from
this that Habib has presented a
Fr0sh Nova

package proposal which he was
asking Israel to accept.

future plans would depend on the

reported the "elements" of the

the request of the Lebanese
government; Christian militias to

Re-Entry Program For
Women Celebrates
Successful 1st Year
The Re-entry Program for
Women at the University of
Tampa has successfully com-
pleted its first year.
Over 50 women have now par-
ticipated in the Re-entry Pro-
gram, taking courses in account-
ing, art history, English compo-
sition, economics, history, litera-
ture, sociology and creative
writing. As predicted, these adult
women are highly successful as
students, most receiving A's and
B'sfor their work.
The feedback on the program
and its support services has been
gratifying. These are typical
comments received:
"I was glad to know I could
succeed in a business course!"
"The Women's Re-entry Pro-
gram has come to symbolize for
me the ideal setting for continu-
ing education. It embodies teach-
ing combined with caring, learn-
ing combined with fellowship,
and rhetoric combined with
"The program gave me confi-
dence. The support from teachers
and students is the best I ve ever
The aspects of the program
most praised were: small classes,
supportive instructors, studying
with other adults, renewing
study skills, individual attention
arid advising, the creation of
better self-images, and the en-
couragement to take one's educa-
tion seriously and pursue goals.
Summer plans include an
accounting course, which is
underway, and a public speaking
course beginning June I. Women,
are particularly encouraged to;
study speech, since fear of and;
lack of training in this area-
prevent many women from-
taking advantage of personal and-
professional opportunities.

focusing on women in the 19th
century), and introduction to
The program has been sup-
ported by two national grants,
and anticipates receiving a third.
Donations from persons in the
community who share concern for
the well-being of women have
enabled the program to establish
its own scholarship program.
With these forms of financial
success, the Re-entry Program
plans to expand and to continue
offering high quality education
and support services to women
who wish to continue college

its ancient capital. And would never leave.
Those were the days when the world regarded
the Davidic victory as a breathtaking and noble
achievement. Those were the days prior to the 1973
Arab oil crunch.
In 1981, on occasion of the 14th anniversary of
the reunification of Jerusalem, the status of the city
is under international dispute, and Israel's erstwhile j
admirers the European nations, the United States
are no longer either admirers or necessarily
friends. There is open talk about internationaliza-
tion, about giving Jerusalem a Free City status,
about modeling its future according to the status of
the Vatican in Rome.
But Israel's future must be Israel's present. Is-
rael recalls the ancient pledge: "If I foget thee, O
Jerusalem ." [srae! is not prepared to forget.
In a world that has a growing capacity to rewrite
history, Israel -and the Jewish people must stand
firm on Jerusalem. Not even the recent move legally
to establish Jerusalem as Israel's capital city, which
Israel should have made back in June, 1967, and
which in 1980 enraged the-Arab petropowers and
their clients, will move Israel and the Jewish people
to withdraw from this symbolic commitment to Zion.
Prime Minister Menachem Begin said sometime
ago that Jerusalem is neither negotiable nor a sub-
ject for any further debate. Jerusalem is de facto and
de jure and ever shall be the light of the Jewish peo- .;
pie wherever they live. From Jerusalem shall come :
forth Torah. That is the ancient seer's vision of the
The future is now.
Britain's Perverted Role
A newly-declassified British document shows
that Great Britain "restrained" Jordan from reach- 1
ing an agreement with Israel in the year after the
Jewish State was established in 1948.
The Minister of Amman, Sir A. Kirkbaide, is
quoted as having told then-Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin that "King Abdullah was personally anxious
to come to an agreement with Israel ... it was our
restraining influence which has so far prevented him
from doing so."
Behind the dirty dealing was Britain's fear of
losing its power and prestige in the Middle East
fear that "the Israelis might drag the Arab states
into a neutral bloc and might even attempt to turn us
out of Egypt."
The horror of this document, which when it was
written showed unutterable contempt for the pros-
pect of peace and prosperity between Israel and the
Arabs, reminds us now of Britain's Lord Carrington.
Carrington is an avowed disciple of doing
business with the Palestine Libertaion Organization,
which he hopeslto pursue actively with The Nine
when, in his six-month tenure as president of the
European Economic Community, it meets again
shortly to do a replay of its 1980 Venice Declaration
on this very same subject the PLO and "peace" in
the Middle East.
Lord Carrington sees nothing wrong with the
PLO. In his book, they are not terrorists. We
suggest that Carrington instead turn his sights on
Belfast, Ireland, and take up the proposition that the
Irish Republican Army is not terrorist either. In
Belfast, Britain sings another tune. Why not do
business with the IRA, if Israel is expected to do
business with the PLO? After all, what's sauce for
the goose ought to be sauce for the gander.

ALL OVER again, it's the old)
story about the chicken and the
egg. One will never know which
came first whether it was the
wretched outcome of the Yom
Kippur War that catapulted the .
Arabs into a superior Middle
Eastern position. Or whether,
war. .or not, they were already on
their way toward achieving a uni-
fied petrodiplomacy designed to
bring the industrialized nations
into a slavish dependency upon |
their oil. And hence, to a ready',
willingness to see Israel go down '
the tubes.
In any case, it was Roger
Tamraz, the Lebanese graduate
of Harvard Business School and
a tour of duty in the U .S. with the
Merrill Lynch stockbrokers' firm,
who called the shots immediately
after the Yom Kippur War.
Arabs have all the monev in the
world, that the expertise of the
Jewish public relations experts
on Madison Ave. were about to
be bought with some of it, and
that before long the Israeli super-
man image would fade and give
rise to a new global Arab supre-
macy instead.
Whether or not the Tamraz
plan of operation in fact bore fruit
is beside the point because the
end he foresaw, Arab supremacy,
has turned out precisely as he
predicted it. The development
was virtually contiguous with the
brilliant victory that the Israelis
finally scored in the 1973 war
against Egypt, and the hu-
miliating peace agreement they
were forced to sign in order to
help save Egyptian face a
strange role for the victor.
It was this agreement that
paved the way for the revisionists
of history, paradoxically Anwar
Sadat among them, to recast the
war as a brilliant Arab victory
and as the initial giant step
toward castrating the erstwhile
Israeli, superman. Paradoxical
because, among all the Arabs, it
is Sadat alone who later entered
into what is supposed to be a per-
manent peace agreement based
on the Camp David accords.
ALL OF these considerations
are paramount to an understand-
ing of the Israeli-Syrian dilemma
today. In the Yom Kippur War, it
was not the Israeli high com-
mand but the U.S. State Depart-
ment that instructed Israel when
it should call a halt to its military
operations in the field. (That was
what the face-saving gesture was
all about.)
In the current struggle be-
tween Syria and Israel, once
again it is American foreign
policy that has overridden Is-
rael's national decision-making
processess this time to dictate
whether or not the Israelis should
opt for war at all and, if yes, just
The question of just when is
central to Israels military cam-
paigns in the past, all of which,
with the exception of the 1973
war when Egypt took the initia-
ls have relied on the element of
therapeutic surprise.
The Habib shuttle these past
tew weeks has not only destroyed
this element; to say the least, it
has given Syria every op-
portunity to make advance
preparation for war. particularly
in concert with the Soviet Union.
WHAT THIS says about Is-
rael is that it has been down-
graded as a nation. From the
1948 War of Independence to the
Yom Kippur War in 1973, the Is-
raelis achieved a legendary record
of military successes and a con-
comitant chorus of western
world praise, part of it rooted in a
sense of guilt about the Holo-
caust, part of it encouraged by
the universal desire to see the
underdog survive and prevail.
There is little doubt that the
Realpolitik governing the
voracious western appetite for oil
has contributed heavily to this
downgrading process. But Prime
Minister Begin's most recent
military posturings his
repeated threats to move when it
is clear that without a Reagan
Administration okay he can not
move have also contributed to
While, in the past, the Arabs
have been the Middle East's
traditional mice that roared, Is-
rael was never among them,
loday, by virtue!of these Begin
posturings, his country joins the
Arab brood in muscle-flexing
contests designed purely for pub-
lic demonstration.
DOES THIS mean that Israel
is little more than an America

Such growth in power (in
excess of $20 billion since the Oc-
tober '73 war) has made Saudi
Arabia the seventh largest pur-
chaser of arms in the world. With
the addition of the current arms
package, Saudi Arabia will have
the ability to oppose an expan-
sion effort from forces with more
than twice its real offensive
power. The same holds true for
aggressor status and superiority
becomes the rule when the
AWACS are in operation
The AWACS (Airborne Warn-
ing and Control System) is a
modified Boeing 707-320B air-
craft equipped with a 30-foot
rotary radar' dome antenna. It
can travel at speeds ranging from
410-600 mph with an endurance
orbit of 11 hours. AWACS can
maintain an altitude of 30,000
feet and require a crew of 17
highly skilled operators. Cost:
130 Million Dollars.
It's mission capabilities in-
clude mobile field surveillance,
jamming resistance, control,
command, communication,
weather, long range, high and low
surveillance of airborne vehicles

AWACS can detect in excess
of 600 targets and can define at
least 240 at any given moment in
terms of size, altitude, identity,
speed, and post and future
vectoring. All moving objects can
be plotted and assigned ETA
(estimated time of arrival) status
instant instantaneously.
AWACS has the ability with
two units airborne in Saudi terri-
tory to have complete surveil-
lance coverage of all territory in
the Middle East from Israel to
Iran to Oman. Each AWACS can
"see" a radius of 260 miles pro-
viding friendly forces with imme-
diate access to the movements of
all aggressor forces as small as
a car moving along the highway.
As another example ... if one
AWAC was hovering over the
Empire State Building, it could
survey all movements from air-
ports in Philadelphia, New York
City, Boston, Washington, Pitts-
burgh, Richmond, Virginia, as
well as all boats at sea to the
Compromise of the AWAC's
secrets would be a dangerous
blow to American security. The
U.S. cannot afford to ignore the
lessons of Iran. Sensitive
equipment (F-14s, Harpoon and
Phoenix missiles) was comprom-
ised there. Saudi territory is no
more stable than Iran. Can we
afford to make another mistake?
"If the Soviets should gain
access to the AWACS they could
move ahead", in the opinion of
the Director of the CIA, "Some
five to seven years in certain
technologies. More immediately,
they could learn how to jam any
U.S. or NATO AWACS version
rendering us defenseless."

quire American assistance in

The Saudi regime is unstable
and faces numerous threats as
shown in last year's takeover of
the grand Mosque. There is
popular resentment against the
concentration of power in the
hands of the Saudi royal family.
The tribal National Guard and
Saudi Army are a primary threat
to the Saudi regime coming from
its own feudial policies and from
conspiracies based in rival Arab
Additionally, Saudi Arabia has
never adopted the Camp David
Accord. Saudi Arabia funds ter-
rorists organizations millions.
PLO- 200 million: Fatah 42 mil-
lion: Saudi Arabia has pledged to
grant the PLO an annual sum of
$85 million in the future. Saudi
Arabia actively boycotts Egypt
due to its efforts to seek peace
with Israel.
Saudi Arabia has this year
renewed its pledge to wage a
"Jihad" (Holy war) against
Israel, and declared that all its
forces will be at the disposal of
the Arab states in this fight.
Thus, as we know, during a
conflict Saudi Arabia extends its
mechanical and human resources
to forces in battle with Israel.
Had AWACS been in the air
during the Entebbe Rescue from
Uganda, the Saudis would have
been able to pick up Israeli air-
craft movements and relayes
intercept information to its allied
force the same holds true
during the U.S. attempt to rescue
Americans held hostage in Iran.
Is this the climate some of the
most sophisticated U.S. military
equipment should be introduced
Israel's major strength in its
defense has been its ability to
fight a preemptive war attack
by surprise. The AWACS will
preclude Israel's ability to fight
for its defense. An Arab surprise
attack, in coordination with
Syria, Jordan and Iraq will soon
be possible if AWACS are
deployed to cover all of Israel's
The range and detection capa-
bilities of the AWACS, combined
with the 62-F-15 Fighter bombers

previously mentioned make
Saudi Arabia the most potent
force along Israel's eastern front.
Some say that due to an elapse
in time since the Camp David
Accord, the Saudis are pressur-
ing the US to make a move in
light of Soviet movements and
petro blackmail in this light,
the Saudis want to test the U.S.
resolve to push for a solution ac-
ceptable to the Arabs. This ma-
noeuver also allows the Saudis
the greater visibility in thejU.S.,
thus enhancing their invisible
position in the resolution
question of Middle East ap-
Nevertheless, the sale of offen-
sive equipment will not lesson the
internal threats to Saudi Arab
and will be ineffective in coun-
tering Soviet encroachment in
the Middle East. If the U.S. was
interested in simple monitoring
efforts, why hasn't it made
gestures to NATO forces in that
The AWACS sale will en-
danger American secrets and
technology the AWACS sale
will threaten the security of
Israel. The sale of the Saudi arms
package will not reduce the cost
of oil as this price is fixed by the
Saudis as they deem necessary
for them no one else.
By the U.S. acquiescing to this
Saudi effort, we will look weak
internationally. Thus the sale of
advanced missiles and FAST
packs, AWACS and other en-
hancement capabilities plus
hundreds of Americans commited
to a minimum of a 20-year main-
tenance effort, fails to serve the
interests of the United States,
Israel and Middle East Peace.

Lisa Meyer Valedictorian
Lisa Meyer
When Lisa Ellen Meyer steps forward at
graduation as Valedictorian of Ix-to High School,
it will be with a great deal of self satisfaction .
I .isa set her goal early to be "the top" and she has
worked hard toward that end. Her high academic
milking (her average is 4.56) has come while
working (as a kitchen helper in a reataurant),
being a teacher's aide at Congregation Schaarai
Zedek Religious School, being vice-president of
SchZFTY and being production manager of her
Junior Achievement Company.
The daughter of Carole Wolfe and Arnold
Meyer, Lisa has excelled in the ranks of Junio'
\i hievement receiving both an Arthur Anders*.:
& Co. Scholarship and the Stephen I-eslie Peter
Scholarship. She also won 1100 in sales nmi
petition She received one of eight executive
awards as production manager of her company.
Odyssey [novations, she was able to accept the
award for best product. Their product was
candleholders made from small ashtrays.
This future Chemical Engineer will attend
Georgia Tech this Fall and hopes to join the
school's co-op education program. In I.eto she has
been treasurer and president of Mu Alpha Theta,
math honorary society, treasurer of Miss Leo.
service club, treasurer of the International Club
and business manager of the Quill Magazine staff.
Lisa is a member of National Honor Society,
.iiia Club. Quill and Scroll and this year has been
an act ive part of the Senior Council. She has been
on the Math Howl Team for three years and has
been captain of the team this year. She has been a
member of the Student Council her Junior and
Senior years. She has also been a member of the
Spanish I lonor Society for two years.
In SchZFTY, Lisa has been executive vice
president and attended theSKFTY Institute and
Leadership Training program at Camp Coleman
which she hopes to do again this year. In previous
wars she has been a vice-president and
corresponding secretary of SchZFTY.
Chemistry has always been my strong point
but I've also always done well in math," Lisa
said. "I've been encouraged to go into en-
gineering and become either a chemist or a
chemical engineer."
During her senior year, Lisa has spent six
hours a week in the Hillsborough County Gifted
Program working in a laboratory. For this she has
received Honors Science credit.
When Lisa goes to college in Atlanta this fall.
she will join her sister Wendy, an Fmory Uni-
versity student who was a honor graduate last
year. And it looks like younger brother, Jeff, is
follow in the family tradition for he is on the I^to
Math Team and last year was named Out
standing Member of the Math League at Webb
Junior High.
That made it a clean sweep for that award by
the three Meyers students.
Brad Hass Valedictorian
Brad II Haas, Valedictorian of Plant High
School, has a hard time listing all of the awards he
has earned in academia during his high school
) ears The son of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Haas. Brad
is not merely following in the footsteps of his
sister Robin who was valedictorian of Plant High
in 1978, or that of his sister Kara who was val-
edk-lorian of her graduating class in 1976 at Blind
Brook High School in the town of Rye. NY. With
all ol : hat to tollow. Hrad is still making a path all
his own.
Voted "Most Intelligent" by his senior class,
Hrad will graduate with a 5.033 average (on a
four-point scale!) He is listed in Who's Who in
\merican High Schools this year and was a na-
tional finalist in competition sponsored by the
Nal ional Society of Professional Engineers.
Hrad has been selected as one of the four stu-
dents from Hillsborough County to attend the
Dallas gathering in June for the American Acad-
emy of Achievements. Known as the "Golden
Plate' Award, this "Salute to Excellence" week-
end brings together top students from all over the
county together with top American business and
industrial leaders. Each student is sponsored by
local businessmen and the Hillsborough students
are the guests of George Jenkins and Hugh
In the Fall Hrad will be a student at Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology which he chose
over Cal Tech, .because Cal Tech is too far
away," Brad said. He plans to major in engineer-
ing, but might switch to physics, he isn't sure.
"But then there is also the possibility of pro-
fessional school," Brad adds.
This past year Brad was president of AZA's
North Florida Council and in the local AZA chap-
ter he has been treasurer, secretary and vice-
president. He's been a member of the National
Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honorary
Society) and "I Dare You'' Honor Society for the
las) three years He was on the Math Bowl Team
for t hree years and was captain in his senior year.
He was vice president of the Quiz Bowl in his
sophomore year.
Brad was Captain of the Plant Bowling Team
in the 10th grade and on the Tennis Team in the
1 Ith grade. He has been a member of the Gold
and Black Honor Society for two years, the
Spanish Honor Society, the Junior Classical
League and for three years he was part of
Strength Through Unity."
He is a National Merit Commended Scholar
and received the Golden Panther Award in
Hrad N. Haas
Mathematics at Plant this year. In the Tampa
Times Honor student competition, Brad won one
of four $500 college scholarships.
Besides his regular class work. Brad has been
part of the Hillsborough County Schools Gifted
Community Science Lab Program in which he
participated in Computer Manipulation of Pilot-
Radar Responses at the FAA Tower at Tampa
International Airport. But Brad is quick to add
that he was not allowed to talk to pilots in the air.
As part of the Lab program, he also worked for
the U.S. Geological Survey Department and at
t he Learning Center for (lifted Children.
For all you trivia buffs, this is the fourth con-
secutive Plant High Valedictorian from Congre-
gation Schaarai Zedek. In '78 it was Robin Haas,
in 79 Tom Barkin, '80 Beth Osiason and now '81
Brad Haas. Rumor has it that for the next several
years there are Schaarai Zedek students who are
contenders to be named top student. And there is
one more member of the Haas family. Felice is in
the eighth grade at Coleman Junior High.

Recalling the Unification Of
Israel's Ancient City of Zion

thich has for centuries occupied

iteral meaning of the word,

Unlike the other three, the
Jewish Quarter has undergone a
lumber of upheavals in the past
[uarter of a century that brought
, close to being wiped out alto-
ether. Its origins go back to the
period after the fall of the Second
femple in the year 70 of the
bmmon Era, when only the
Vestem Wall, Kotel, of the sane-
luary was left. Jews started
building their houses on the slope

Jhiring certain periods, it con-
listed of only a handful of
families, and at other times it
flourished and spread far beyond
fhe confines of the quarter. The
teak was reached towards the
end of the 19th century, when the
population numbered about
J5.000, more than half the total
.opulation of the entire Old City.
During this time most of the
public buildings and synagogues
ere erected.
The very fact of a minor popu-
lation explosion, however,

development of new quarters
eing built outside the city walls,
baused Jews to start leaving the
llewish Quarter. During the
^urbulent last years of the British
nandate the population dwindled
< 18.000.

dren hadto leave their homes and
move to the Israeli sector of the
city. The bleakest period on the
history of the quarter had begun.
When Jerusalem was reunited
in June, 1967 after the Sue-Day
War, a third of the Jewish Quar-
ter was found to be in ruins. All
synagogues were completely
desecrated, public buildings
vandalized. Those buildings still
standing were not fit for habita-
tion, even though 4,000 Arab res-
idents of the city were living in
them, without any public ser-
THE COURSE of action to be
taken was obvious. It was impos-
sible to leave the quarter as it
was. It was unthinkable to
abandon it. The quarter had to be
rebuilt, and the Israel Govern-
ment created a special body to do
the job: the Company for the Re-
construction and Development of
the Jewish Quarter in the Old
City of Jerusalem.
A weighty name, but nothing
compared to the weight of the
task before it. Shalom Gardi,
chief architect of the company,
surrounded by blueprints and
seated under the vaulted ceiling
of the Rothschild building, one of
the first to be reconstructed,
describes the three problems hi3
team was faced with.
First, there was the architec-
tural-aesthetic approach to be
followed in rebuilding the
quarter. It would have been a
simple matter to lay out a grid of
parallel and intersecting streets
and put up modern apartments
and shops. But the quarter forms
part of the overall pattern of the
Old City, and its network of
alleys and the physical texture of
its buildings are one with those of
the other quarters.
The characted and atmosphere
of the quarter are determined by
the play of light and shade re-
sulting from winding alleys and
covered passages, indoor court-
yards and small squares. The ar-
chitecture abounds in arches,
domes and vaults all shapes
that require expertise in con-
struction. While living quarters
obviously had to be up to
present-day standards, it was
clear that all the traditional
elements of the Old City architec-
ture had to be preserved no
small challenge to the planning
THE SECOND problem was
providing modern engineering
facilities, such as sewerage,
drainage, water pipes, electric
and telephone cables, and TV
cables from a central antenna. All
these have been laid under-
ground, at great expense, thus
avoiding unsightly modem intru-
sions into the traditional
countenance of the quarter.
Thirdly, there was the problem
of archaeological finds. The area
has been settled ever since the
eighth century BCE. but the
density of its population in recent
centuries had made excavations
impossible. It was clear that re-
construction could not be under-
taken without letting the archae-
ologists avail themselves of this
one-time chance to unearth the
secrets of the past. The results of
their digs have been no less
exciting to the layman than to
the diggers themselves, and
include a city wall dating from
the Iron Age, patrician resi-
dences of the Upper City, the
Cardo, a main thoroughfare built
by the Romans, and parts of an
enormous Byzantine church of
the six century CE.
As many as possible of the
finds will be incorporated in
basements of the new and recon-
structed buildings of the quarter,
and will be open to the public,
and this, of course, constitutes an
added complication and challenge
to the planners.
quarter has been planned as a
residential area (as it has been in
the past) for 2,600 persons (630
families). In addition, some 1,500
study in religious and education-
al institutions. The Jewish
Quarter has great traditional
value for Jews, and is close to one
of their holiest shrines, the
Western Wall. Thus a large
tourist flow is to be taken into
account, resulting in a high pro-
portion of commercial floor area
and appropriate street layout.
The houses of the quarter are
terraced along the slopes of the
mountain, many of them facing
the Temple Mount with its view
of the Dome of the Rock and the
Western Wall. Beyond them is
the skyline of the Mount of
Olives and Mount Scopus.
Apartments are grouped around
courtyards, and are stacked in a
roughly pyramidal of habitat
shape, leaving room for many
patios and roof terraces. The
houses are served by a network of
narrow winding alleys that some-
times come to a dead end, safe-
guarding the privacy of the resi-

The whole quarter is closed to
vehicular transport. Collection of
refuse, transport of goods and
similar services are performed
with the aid of specially designed
electric carts, adapted to the
needs and physical limitations of
the quarter. A route system has
been laid out for these vehicles, to
allow them to negotiate slopes,
turns and the like.
Historic Reunification
Took Place 14 Years Ago
On the morning of
June 5, 1967, Jordanian
forces began shelling West
Jerusalem, and advancing
in and around the Jeru-
salem area. Within 48
hours, a successful Israeli
counterattack sliced
through Jordanian lines
and recaptured East
For the first time in 19 years,
Jews again prayed at the
Western Wall the last remnant
of the temple built by King
Solomon. The entire nation sang
Jerusalem of Gold, the song
which was written before the war,
and expresses the tremendous
longing for the-city. Barricades
were dismantled, and Jeru-
salem's Jews and Arabs came
into contact once again. On June
28, the government officially an-
nounced the city's reunification.
Yom Yerushalayim was estab-
lished according to the Jewish
calendar as the annual com-
memoration of this reunification.
"We earnestly stretch out our
hands to our Arab brethren in
peace," said then-Minister of
Defense Moshe Dayan on June 7,
1967. "We have returned to Jeru-
salem never to part fro her
Since Jerusalem's reunifi-
cation. Israel has expended
considerable resources on pre-
serving and restoring the tra-
ditionally beautiful appearance of
the entire city. In the Old City,
! new sewers saved part of the Via
Dolorosa from collapse. Similary,
decaying overhead arches atop
many streets have been saved
and restored. Thousands of tons
of accumulated debris have been
removed from the inner city, and
the outer wall is being repaired to
its original splendor. The ma-
liciously-destroyed Jewish
Quarter is being renewed to its
former glory, rebuilt with pains-
taking authenticity in order to
preserve the uniqueness of the
area. Rehabilitation work and
new construction alike through-
out the city have been carefully
designed to blend in with and
preserve Jerusalem's natural
character and beauty.
The city's Arabas have greatly
benefited from reunification. Is-
rael has provided them with
responsive government, greater
political freedom than they have
ever known, and economic,
educational and health improve-
ments. Their housing, water
supply, employment standards
and standard of living have made
tremendous advances.
Since 1967, for the first time in
thousands of years, full freedom
of access exists for all human
beings regardless of race or reli-
gion, who wish to visit the Holy
City. Today, in part because of
Israel's "Open Bridges" policy,
anyone can come to Jerusalem.

How Effective is Germany's Answer to Neo-Nazism?
The Federal Republic
of Germany, like the rest of
Western Europe, is con-
by increasingly
neo- Nazism and
right-wing ex-
How prepared is
it to answer the challenge?
The justice system in Ger-
many, it has been suggested
allegorically, haa had much
better vision in its left eye than in
the right one. More than at any
other time since World War II,
reality demands that this
deficiency be corrected and
there is an indication that the
determination exists to do just
IT MUST be remembered that
we are talking about a nation re-
sponsible for murdering six mil-
lion Jews, a nation which in 1933
had 500,000 Jews, and today has
only some 30,000. We are talking
;ibout a nation once ruled by
Hitler's insane racism, which
blamed Jews for all evil in the
world, for Germany's defeat in
World War I, and for its in-
flation, as well as for the world
economic crisis and the Bolshevik
Revolution, supposedly a Jewish
ma chi nation.
The ideological imprint of
Nazism on the national mind was
so strong, so deadly and so
persistent that its residues still
survive, providing the foundation
for activities by the heirs of that
dark era. The goal of the neo-
Nazis Loday is to finish the task
Hitler set for the Third Reich.
Since this aim seems unattain-
able through the normal political
process, terrorism is their an-
Neo-Nazi incidents have risen
from 136 in 1974, to 206 in 1975,
|:I19 in 1976. 616 in 1977, 992 in
197k, and 5.400 in 1979. Most of
them involved desecration of
Jewish cemeteries and painting
swastikas in public places.
GERMAN lawmakers, aware
I when they drew up their con-
| siitution that anti-Semitism and
other forms of bigotry and hatred
I did nut disappear with the demise
of the Third Reich, provided
[certain legal mechanisms. For
example, Article (Freedom of Ex-
Ipression) of the Basic Law of the
I Federal Republic of Germany
H949I states: "Everyone shall
I have the right to freely express
land disseminate his opinion in
I speech, writing and pictures .
land goes on to say: "These
rights are limited by the
I right of inviolability of personal
Article 18 (Forfeiture of Basic
plights) declares: "Whoever
houses freedom of expression of
opinion ... in order to combat
pree democratic basic order, shall
porfeit these basic rights." (Inci-
Wentally, such provisions are in
pull harmony with the philosophy
I11' the German philosopher.
Immanuel Kant, who holds that
[freedom should be restricted to
pi" extant that it may interfere
|with the rights of others.)
Ideas, of course, cannot be out-
lawed no matter how malevolent
phey may be, but their dis-
semination can be halted as a
[way of thwarting building blocks
por neo-Nazi ideologies. Accord-
ingly, the Penal code outlaws the
jspread and use of former
I National Socialist organizational
(propaganda and artifacts.
THE LAW, however, has loop-
Iholes. It can be evaded, for ex-
ample, by maintaining that the
prohibited Nazi propaganda
aterial is imported. Indeed, the
?eo Nazi weekly National
Wrung has for years been pub-
ishmg articles by American and
Wner foreign "experts" who
Present "scientific" evidence that
fhere was no Nazi death
machinery during World War II.
To stop this practice, the ruling
Social Democrat Party and its
coalition partner, the Free
Democrats, have reached agree-
ment on a draft law prohibiting
the import of neo-Nazi
propaganda material into the
Federal Republic.
If enacted into law, as ex-
pected, the dissemination of
literature denying the existence
of gas chambers under Hitler
would become more difficult. It
would also ban propaganda
material provided to the neo-
Nazis by the Palestine Liberation
Organization, which has
maintained close contact with
right-wing extremists in West
While the general public often
talks and writes about extreme

League's European Affairs
rightist organizations and neo-
Nazis as if they were inter-
changeable, the Federal Govern-
ment carefully differentiates be-
tween them. Interestingly
enough, while extreme rightist
organizations have decreased
! during the past two years both in
numbers of separate groups and
their memberships, neo-Nazi
rosters have increased.
| AN EXAMPLE of significant
j membership decrease is to be
found in the largest right-wing
extremist organization in Ger-
many, the National Democratic
Party (NDP), whose membership
dropped from 28,000 in 1969 to
8,000 in 1980.
The rise in neo-Nazi member-
ship can perhaps explain the in-
crease of incidents which are
more anti-Semitic in character
than acts commited by other
right-wing groups whose activi-
ties are targeted more against
foreign laborers e.g., Turks,
Greeks and Spaniards.
Statistically, the following
picture emerges. In 1977, there
were 83 extreme rightist
organizations with 17,800 mem-
' bers, as contrasted with 17 neo-
Nazi groupings with 900 mem-
bers. In 1978, the extreme right-
ist organizations had declined to
67, with a membership of 17,600,
the neo-Nazi groupings had risen
, to 25, with a membership of
Statistics also indicate that 76
percent of all right-wing incidents
have been committed by neo-
Nazis, even though they com-
prise less than 10 percent of the
total of the extreme right.
crease in neo-Nazi activities has
been a discernible increase in
criminal proceedings against the
perpetrators instituted between
1975-79. Available statistics for
1979 are incomplete, but at the
end of 1978 preliminary pro-
ceedings had been initiated in 600
cases as compared to 317 in 1977.
Sentences were passed in 141
instances as compared with 91 in
1977. In the first half of 1980.
1 according to the Federal Minister
of Interior, sentences against
neo-Nazis were up 43 percent as
compared with the first half of
Even with an organization out-
lawed and its members sentenced
to jail, the task of eradicating
extremism is not fully completed.
The underground, supported by
the well-financed and organized
community of international
terrorism, always manages to go
on functioning.
Among Che legal means avail-
able to combat extremism is the
prohibition by the Federal Re-
view Board for Publications of
printed materials judged harmful
to young people, who are the
prime target of neo-Nazi
recruiters. This year, alone, 48
publications have been banned.
Considering that the combined
monthly circulation for all right -
I wing publications is about
i 190,000 (mostly pamphlets and
i magazines), and that under-
ground circulation is more diffi-
cult to stop than sales through
regular outlets, there is still a
long way to go.

Begin Denies There's 'American Plan' to Resolve Crisis
(JTA) The Cabinet met
in special session for two
hours to review the latest
proposals presented by
U.S. special envoy Philip
Habib to resolve the missile
crisis between Israel and
Syria. Cabinet Secretary
Arye Naor told reporters
afterwards that decisions
were taken "which increase
the prospects for a peaceful
resolution of the crisis." He
gave no details.
Premier Menachem Begin was
scheduled to meet with Habib
later to inform him of the
Cabinet's decision and then to
make a statement to the press
after the meeting. Begin and
Habib met shortly after the
American diplomat' returned to
1 Israel from talks in Damascus.
He also visited Riyadh, Saudi
Arabi, last weekend in an ap-
parent effort to enlist the Saudis
to exert their influence on Presi-
dent Hafez Assad of Syria for a
paceful solution.
THE PRIME Ministers Office
repeated that there was no
"American plan" or any other
that calls for a cessation or
limitation of Israel Air Force
flights over Lebanon. A spokes-
man insisted that no such idea
was even raised in Begin's talks
with Habib.
But Israel Radio broadcast
what it said were "elements" of
the proposals Habib has carried
in his round of shuttle diplomacy
between Jerusalem and Arab
capitals. They included cessation
by Israel of operational flights
over Lebanon as distinguished
from high altitude intelligence-
gathering flights which would be
allowed to continue, according to
Israel Radio.
It was intimated that the
restriction applied only to eastern
and northern Lebanon and that
Israel would remain free to
continue its operational missions
against Palestinian terrorists in
South Lebanon.
Begin also for the first time
spoke openly of the presence of
Soviet advisers to Syrian troops,
together with platoons of 3,600
Syrian tanks, prepared to do
battle in Lebanon.
Mordechai Zipori said that he
had no information of any of-
fensive deployment of Syrian
forces in Lebanon. He told the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee that the
Syrians may want war but at this
state their military build-up was
defensive in nature.
He said the Syrians have re-
inforced their anti-aircraft
batteries and armored units and
were fortifying their positions in
the Sannine mountain range. But
according to Zipori, the Syrians
are no longer using helicopter in
offensive operations against
Christian forces in the Lebanese
Meanwhile, a United Nations
source in York said that Israel
and Syria have agreed to a six-
month extension of the United
Nations Disengagement Ob-
server Force on the Golan
Heights. The 1,250-man force
made up of contingents from
Austria, Finland, Canada and
Poland has been supervising the
disengagement agreements
entered into by Syria and Israel
in May, 1974.
Israel Wants Rollback, Evron Says in D.C.
(JTA) Ephraim Evron,
Israel's Ambassador to the
United States, declared
here that Israel will do
everything that "is
humanly possible" to
achieve a peaceful solution
t the crisis in Lebanon, but
warned Israel "cannot tole-
rate" the security threat
posed by the Syrian anti-
aircraft missiles.
"AH we ask Syria is to go back
to the situation that existed
before the hostilities that were
launched by them in early April,"
Evron told the more than 1,000
persons attending a dinner at the
22nd annual policy conference of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
THE ISRAELI Ambassador
declared that "Israel has always
maintained that the territorial in-
tegrity and sovereignty of Leba-
non should be upheld and
respected." But he said Israel
"can not sit by and watch" Leba-
non be occupied by another
country or used as a terrorist
base against Israel, or watch the
Christian population there being
"annihilated" and "do nothing."
In addition to AIPAC mem
bers from across the country, the
audience which heard Evron
included members of the House
and Senate, representatives of
Jewish groups from other
countires, a large contingent
from the Israel Embassy, two
Israel Knesset members, and
three officials from the Egyptian
Those on the dias included
representatives from the White
House and three Assistant Secre-
taries of State. Lawrence Wein-
berg, president of AIPAC, noted
that American support for Israel
has always been "broad-based
and bipartisan."
THE MAJOR issue for the
delegates was the Regan Admin-
istration's proposed sale to Saudi
Arabia of AWACS and enhance-
ment equipment for the 62 F-15
fighter planes previously pur-
chased. Weinberg, while praising
the Administration's general
attitude toward Israel, said the
AIPAC members were "dis-
mayed and in total opposition" to
the arms package.
Evron touched only briefly on
the proposed sale, saying he
hoped the Administration "will
reconsider the idea." He said the
sale will not enhance the security
position of the United States and
will eventually pose a "very
serious security problem for
The same position was taken
by the other two major speakers,
Senators Roger Jepsen (R., Iowa)
and Bill Bradley (D, N.J.). They
stressed that the sale would not
only threaten Israel but would
also not be in the best interest of
the United States.
of the situation in Lebanon and
said such sales would make
Israel's enemies less amenable to
reach peace with Israel and em-
bolden them to take such moves
as Syria has done in Lebanon
Jepsen stressed that while the
U.S. should try to improve rela-
tions with Arab countries, it
would not be at Israel's expense.
He argued that the proposed sale
to the Saudis did not include a
promise from them that they
would recognize Israel, end their
subsidy to the Palestine
Liberation Organization, drop
their boycott of Egypt, or move
to support the Camp David
Jepsen praised the Reagan Ad-
ministration for expelling the
Libyan Embassy staff. He said it
should also have closed down the
PLO information office here. He
said if the law does not allow the
U.S. to do this, the law should be
here. Rep. Jack Kemp (R., N.Y.)
pledged that "there will be no
sale" of AWACS or enhancement
equipment to Saudi Arabia as
long as the Saudis do not support
the Camp David process, as long
as they "embrace the PLO" and
as long as they are waging a jihad
against Israel.
Kemp stressed that, it is the
Soviet Union that is the
greatest threat to peace in the
Middle East." He said there is a
need for an American ground
presence in the region to meet
that threat and added that such a
presence might encourage the
countries in the region to go on
with the peace process

A new era could be dawning for Israel's disadvantaged youngsters.
Through Youth Aliyah.
The one best hope for scores of thousands in need of special care
and residential training. To get them off the streets. To help them take
their rightful place in the Jewish future.
The need is growing. With so much of the quality of life in Israel at
stake, Youth Aliyah programs should be expanded to meet it.
But there will be fewer places for those youngsters this year. Two
thousand will be turned away. Told to wait. To roam the streets. Or
scramble for unskilled work.
Why? Who is holding up the dawn of the new era for Israel's most
precious human resource? Who is blocking the light?
We are. Because we have not heard the cry in the hearts of these
youngsters and responded, through our community campaign, with
the fullness of our hearts.
The new era cannot begin, the light of the dawn cannot emerge...
unless we provide the means to fill those empty places and
create thousands more, this year and in the crucial years ahead.
Your pledge to the 1981 regular campaign is a gift of light unto our
