New Film
Vanessa Outraging
Everybody Again
Vanessa Redgrave, whose
staunch support of the Palestine
Liberation Organization pro-
voked a controversy last year
when she was cast as a Jewish
prisoner in a Nazi concentration
camp in the CBS-TV production
of "Playing for Time," is now in-
volved in promoting two anti-
Zionist films, the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith
According to Justin Finger, di-
rector of the ADL's civil rights
division, Redgrave is promoting
a propaganda film entitled
"Occupied Palestine," which was
premiered in October at the San
Francisco Film Festival, and is
preparing another film that
accuses "Zionists" of being Nazi
In the late 1970s, she produced
and played a leading role in "The
Palestinian," in which she was
shown dancing in a PLO camp,
holding a rifle over her head.
Finger said that financing for
the new film has been provided
by the Crown Prince of Kuwait,
other Kuwaiti "petrodollar ty-
coons" and Palestinians. The
Kuwaiti and Palestinian financial
assistance, he said, was solicited
during a Middle East tour made
by Redgrave to promote "Occu-
pied Palestine."
Finger said that the premise of
Ms. Redgrave's new film an
alleged conspiracy between Zion-
ists and Nazis during World War

Cheating Would be 'Disaster'
Egyptians See Peace With Israel
Undiminished in Future of Necessity
CAIRO (ZINS) The peace
treaty President Sadat initiated, how-
ever imperfect and incomplete, still ap-
pears to be very much alive, according to
the editor of the ruling Egyptian Na-
tional Democratic Party's weekly Mayo,
Ibrahim Sa'adeh. In a remarkable article
last week, he warned those who ad-
vocated "cheating" the Israelis and
reneging on Egyptians commitments
once Sinai is restored, that this would be
an unmitigated disaster for Egypt.
Sa'adeh writes that any attempt to
go back on the treaty after April would
bring down international opprobrium on
Egypt, shatter its credibility in the
world, destroy its ties with the U.S. and
its access to the most modern American
arms, and necessitate grovelling to the
Soviet Union for replacements. Israel, on
the other hand, Sa'adeh continued,
would emerge as Washington's most
trusted ally in the region, and would
probably feel free to reoccupy Sinai
without encountering any major in-
ternational criticism.
On the other hand, Dr. Osama el-
Baz, political director of the president's
office and one of Mubarak 'sclosest aides,
said in Cairo recently that there will be
no "radical change" in Egypt's peace
policy after Sinai is returned.According
to the Israeli daily Ha'aretz, the em-
phasis should be on "radical" rather
than "change." After next April, Egypt
can take on an increasingly forthright
position on contentious issues such as
Palestinian State and the Fahd plan that
it prefers to softpedal for the moment,
and this could precipitate a crises in rela-
tions with Israel.
U.S. and Israel
Serious Concern Over
Future Relations
(Jerusalem), and
(JTA) The future of re-
lations with Washington was a
subject of serious concern here
following Premier Menachem
Begin's unprecedented attack on
the Reagan Administration for
suspending the U.S.-Israel stra-
tegic cooperation agreement. But
there were indications that both
sides would like to cool the situa-
The status of the agreement
remained uncertain. Begin ac-
cused the Administration of
"abrogating" it to "punish" Is-
rael for its annexation of the
Golan Heights a week ago and
declared that this made the pact
"null and void."
The Cabinet did not formally
ratify Begin's statement but, ac-
cording to a close aide "no one
expressed any reservations or ob-
jections" at Sunday's session.
Cabinet Secretary Arye Naor told
reporters later that the Premier's
statement has the "validity" of a
Cabinet decision even though not
formally endorsed. It was
learned, however, that discussion
was cut short because Begin was
in severe pain from his recent hip
Division Over Begin's Statement
Nevertheless, the Cabinet ap-
pears to be divided over Begin's
caustic statement to U.S. Am-
bassador Samuel Lewis, later
made public, an unprecedented
departure from normal practice.
Some ministers told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency privately
that they were pleased with
Begin's performance because the
Administration's "punishment"
of Israel was "disproportionate"
and intended to please and ap-
pease the Arabs. One Minister
contended it would galvanize
American Jewish support behind
There had been an uncomfort-
able awareness here last week
that the organized American
Jewish community was less than
enthusiastic over Israel's Golan
law. But there were also strong
feelings here that Begin had
"gone too far" in his bitter cata-
loguing of Israel's grievances
against the U.S.
Several of the more moderate
Ministers are reported to have
complained privately that Begin
has been repeatedly confronting
the Cabinet with faits accomplis.
The U.S.-Israel memorandum of
understanding on strategic co-
operation was approved in ad-
vance of its signing November 30
at a hurried Cabinet meeting in
Begin's hospital room. Begin has

Dial A Bus Program Curtailed: Volunteers Sought
Riders of the Chai Dial-A-Bus
have received letters informing
them that the program will be
drastically changed as of Jan. 1,
The changes, which will call for
no operation of the bus program
during January and February
and a new plan to be in operation
beginning in March, resulted
from the 1961 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign not meeting its
11,000,000 goal. The final cam-
paign totalled $870,000. Of this,
*375,000 was allocated to local
The Chai Dial-A-Bus program
began in 1975. Originally, the bus
was donated by National Council
of Jewish Women, and the opera-
ting costs were to be borne by
Tampa Jewish Federation. Over
the years, the costs of operation
have increased from $5,000 to
this year's projected $16,000.
Volunteers from NCJW operate
the Dial-A-Bus office (located in
the Jewish Community Center)
dairy from 9 to 12. While the
request for ooeratina funds this
year was $16,000, the allocated
amount was $8,000. Tius has
brought about the present sus-
pension and re-evaluation of
"The details of the new plan
have not yet been worked out,"
according to Gary Alter, execu-
tive director of Tampa Jewish
Federation. "One possible plan is
for the bus to operate two to
three days a week with a pre-
scheduled route which would take
passengers to a specific area of
the community on certain days."

The Modern
Jewish Woman*
TJF Women's Division

Many people believe that the
Women's Division is preoccupied
solely with fundraising activities.
In reality, the scope of Women's
Division programs has broadened
in recent years to include Jewish
education as a top priority.
Today it is essential that our
priorities go beyond fundraising.
Our activities must become a
means to strengthen Jewish
education. Indeed, we must
provide an education in being
Jewish. We must give the chil-
dren of Israel the opportunity to
complete high school and univer-
sity. We must give our own chil-
dren the chance to understand
the unique meaning of being a
Jew. And we must continue our
own educational development so
that we can grow as women, as
leaders and as Jews.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division in an effort to
keep its members informed in-
tends to have educational
seminars, workshops (such as the
recently successful "Women's
Wednesday" workshop) and
ongoing articles in the Jewish
Floridian. The following is such
an article.
"In generations past, a Jewish
girl's life was relatively free of
options. She moved from girl-
hood to womanhood, apprenticed
to her mother as part of an ex-
tended family in which she
learned enough to enable her to
replay her mother's role. Some
Jewish woman did, it is true, go
into business; many worked out-
side the home; some received a
secular education. But their lives,
while not entirely monochromat-
ic, did not offer the wide range of
choices open to today's woman.
The Jewish woman aspired to be
worthy of her husband's praises
extolling her as an "eshet hayil"
(a woman of valor) before the
Friday evening kiddush. If, in her
dreams, she wished to play a re-
deeming role, it was much more
likely to be that of Queen Esther,
carrying out Mordeccai's orders,
than that of Deborah the Judge,
leading her people in war as in
Many of today's Jewish
women are less likely to be satis-
fied with the role of "woman of
valor," combining business
acumen and home-making skills
with practical wisdom and a
concern for the poor. The modern
Jewish woman is more likely to
regard as inequitable that division
of labor, according to which the

wife attends to all the physical
needs of the household, while the
husband "sits among the elders
of the land." Queen Esther no
longer reigns supreme in the
hearts of young Jewish women.
More and more of them are ad-
miring Vashti's spunk instead.
Questioning the traditional
picture of ideal Jewish woman-
hood is not entirely new. One
might cite the power struggle be-
tween Abraham and Sarah over
Hagar, or the complaint of the
daughters of Zelophehad
regarding discriminatory inheri-
tance laws, as the first faint rum-
blings of Jewish feminism. But
these and other isolated instances
do not really constitute a major
strand in Jewish tradition. In the
past, protest has been either so
isolated as to be ineffectual, or so
rechanneled as to become part of
the normative approach. Thus, in
mishnaic times Beruriah's
sarcastic use of the rabbinic
injunction against excessive
conversation with women did not
become a force for change; and in
this century Sarah Schnirer
channeled her dissatisfaction
with the situation of Jewish girls
into the very Orthodox Beth
Jacob movement. Organized
dissent is a recent phenomenon.
Jewish feminism in its present
form is essentially an outgrowth
of the American women's move-
ment. Betty Friedan's The
Feminine Mystique (1963), and
other works urging women's lib-
eration, the bra-burnings and
similar "violent" protests of the
late 1960s and early 1970s all
of these had their impact on
Jewish women's views of their
role in Jewish life. Such women,
both here and abroad, had their
satisfaction with their assumed
role as housewives and mothers
shaken. Indeed, as a group,
I Jewish women were in the fore-
front of the new feminism,
though Jewish women have tra-
ditionally been taught that they
must be good nurturers, ever
ready to sacrifice themselves for
husband and children.
Such questioning was not
lightly undertaken, nor was its
outcome predictable. One might
have expected a weakening of
commitment among Jewish
women to a Judaism which, as
Betty Friedan and other Jewish
leaders of the feminist movement
pointed out, had men daily bless
God for not having created them
women. One could scarcely have
hoped for a sincere grappling
with Judaism and, through this,
heightened sense of commitment.
For traditionalists, unsympa-
thetic to feminist demands, it is
hard to view challengers of
established and sanctified Jewish
mores as anything other than
threats to the very fabric of
Jewish existence. Yet concern
with feminism did give rise to a
specifically Jewish brand which,
while questioning many
traditional Jewish assumptions,
was frequently accompanied by
growing respect for Judaism and
Jewish values."

Well, our friend. Morris Weisman is in the news again. He
has danced his way into a lady's heart and they recently became
husband and wife. Madelon Newell and Morns tied the knot at
the Arthur Murray studio, in Tampa. Among other things, our
very active friend Morris is the public relations director Tor the
Tampa Arthur Murray studio, so when the director asked him if
they could put on the wedding at the studio, they readily agreed.
Archie Skop, who is a notary public, officiated at the ceremony.
Best man was Philip Starr and Matron-of-Honor was Moms'
daughter, Joan Weisman. Morris and Madelon met at the Social
Circle for Senior Citizens at the Jewish Community Center,
about a year ago. Obviously, they really hit it off and we
think it is just marvelous! The Weismans plan an island cruise
in the near future, for their honeymoon. Lots of love and happi-
ness to both of you.

help them in their holy
The rebellion started! One day
Ithe soldiers of Antiochus arrived
I in the village of Modin where
Mattathias, the old priest, lived.
I When the Syrian officer built an
[tltar in the market place of the
| village and demanded of Mat-
Itithias to offer sacrifices to the
|Greek gods, he replied, "I, my
I sons and my brothers are deter-
(mined to remain loyal to the
[covenant which our God made
[ith our ancestors!"
Thereupon, a Hellenistic Jew
hpproached the altar to offer a
Isacrifice. Mattathias grabbed his
|sword and killed him. His sons
land friends fell upon the Syrian
officers and men and killed many
of them. Having chased the rest
|away, they destroyed the altar.
Mattathias knew that
[Antiochus would be enraged
I when he heard what had hap-
|pened. He would certainly send
Ian expedition to punish him and
| his followers. Mattathias, there-
for.', left the village of Modin and
| fled together with his sons and
I friends to the hills of Judea.
All loyal and courageous Jews
[joined them. They formed
I legions and from time to time left
their hiding places to fall upon
the enemy detachments and out-
posts, and to destroy the pagan
altars that were built by order of
I Antiochus.
Before his death, Mattathias
| called his sons together and
urged them to continue to fight in
the defense of God's Torah. He
asked them to follow the counsel
of their brother Simeon the Wise,
and in waging warfare their lead-
er should be Judah the Strong.
Judah was called "Maccabee," a
word composed of the initial let-
ters of four Hebrew swords "Mi
Komocho Bo'eilim Hashem,"
"Who is like unto Thee, O God."
Antiochus sent his General
Apolonious to wipe out Judah
and his followers, the Maccabees.
Though greater in number and in
equipment than their adver-
saries, the Syrians were defeated
by the Maccabees. Antiochus
sent out another expedition
which also was defeated. He
realized that only by sending a
powerful army could he hope to
defeat Judah and his brave fight-
ing men. An army consisting of
more than 400,000 men swept the
land under the leadership of two
commanders, Nicanor and
Gorgiash. When Judah and his
brothers heard of that, they ex-
claimed, "Let us fight unto death
in defense of our people and our
Torah!" The people assembled in
Mizpah (where Samuel the pro-
phet of old had offered prayers to
God). In one of the battles
Antiochus' army was composed
of one hundred thousand infantry
men, twenty thousand horsemen,
and thirty two trained war ele-
phants. They all had armor and
helmets and were veterans of
previous wars. When the sun
rose and shone upon the glit-
tering array of armor, the reflect-
ed light dazzled the eye for miles
"Determined to fight on to the
last man, Judah and his valiant
warriors attacked the enemy, but
not before they had prayed to
$e*tU*A .Muter
"It was a desperate battle, but
Judah and his men fought on
bravely. They destroyed one
battalion after another, but there
seemed no end to the swarming
mass of the enemy. Suddenly
Elazar noticed a war-elephant
that was more elaborately deco-
rated than the others, and
heavily guarded. There the king
must be riding, thought Elazar.
'If I slay him the victory will be
ours.' With no thought for his
own life, Elazar rushed in the
direction of the elephant. He
fought his way through the
guard, until he reached the deco-
rated elephant. He slew the
elephant and its distinguished
rider. But here the heroic Elazar
also lost his life, being caught be-
neath the crushing weight of the
elephant as the huge beast col-
lapsed from its wounds." After
this series of battles the war was
Now the Maccabees returned
to Jerusalem and liberated it.
Entering the Temple they cleared
it of the idols placed there by the
Syrian vandals. Judah and his
followers built a new altar and
dedicated it on the twenty-fifth of
the month of Kislev, in the year
The golden Menorah having
been stolen by the Syrians, the
Maccabees made one of a cheaper
metal. When they wanted to
light it they found only a small
cruse of pure olive oil with the
seal of the High Priest Jochanan
on it. It was sufficent to light
only for one day. By a miracle of
God, it continued to bum for
eight days, until new oil was
made available. That miracle
proved that God had again taken
his people under His protection.
In memory of this, our sages ap-
pointed these eight days for an-
nual thanksgiving and for light-
ing of the Chanukah candles.
Happy Chanukah to one and all!

raising events."
Super Sunday is an annual
national fundraising appeal
designed to reach a large number
of contributors in the shortest
period of time. Last year, more
than 25,000 volunteers in 100
communities raised $19.1 million
for humanitarian programs in
their local communities, among
the people of Israel and for Jew-
ish communities in need through-
out the world.

Necessity of Annexation
The Jewish Ploridian of Tampa
Friday. December 25, lfr

Never mind the United Nations. As a rubber
stamp of the Third World, and Araby in particular, it
has nothing else to do but sit around thinking of
ways to condemn Israel. But the United States?
That is about as hypocritical an act as has come from
Washington and the Reagan Administration since
the attack on the Osirak reactor in Baghdad.
We are talking about Israels annexation of the
Golan Heights last week.
While Communist goon squads in Poland, fired
by the furnaces of the Kremlin, moved in to crush
Solidarity last week, the United States promised to
join the rest of those one-issue folks at the United
Nations in a condemnation of Israel for the Golan
annexation. Mr. Reagan is pretty tough with his
words on Moscow, but when it comes to action.
suddenly he grows craven.
Not so in the case of Israel. And so we ask the
President. what else was Israel supposed to do?
There was Syria's President Assad, only the week-
end before, vowing that Syria would never talk peace
with Israel, no matter what, not in a hundred years.
There was the Reagan Administration, with an eye
on next April, when Israel leaves the last bit of the
Sinai Peninsula, already talking tough about getting
tough on Israel about autonomy before then.
There was the European Economic Community,
after the Claude Cheysson statement in Jerusalem
about the EEC's decision to hold fire on its Venice
Declaration of 1980 and on giving up on the so-called
Fahd peace plan alternative to Camp David, sudden-
ly taking the whole thing back.
There was the whole Western world preparing to
gang up on Israel for more concessions, more conces-
sions, ever more concessions otherwise the Israelis
and their hapless Prime Minister are endlessly "in-
transigent" and so what were the Israelis sup-
posed to do?
One-Way Schizophrenia
Our sweet things at the State Department had
the proper words for it. The Golan Heights'
disposition must be subject to ultimate negotiation
a buzz word for Israeli concession. But Israel has
forever been saying it would never give up the Golan.
Doesn't anybody listen? And even if Israel wanted to
return the Golan, to whom would it return that tiny
peace of geography? You can't talk turkey with
Syrians who call you an "entity," who don't even
recognize your existence.
We are not about to go into the critical strategic
significance of the Golan. Or about how Syria used to
use it to spy on Israel and then lob shells onto Israeli
settlements across the border. We have done that
often enough before.
The issue, it seems to us, is this one-way schizo-
phrenia. The symptoms are simple. Israel must act
responsibly and according to the law. Nobody else
has to. Just look at that silly collection of entities at
the United Nations. Starting with the Kremlin.
You'll never hear any of them tell Syria that, if
they want their territory back, they must sit down
and talk to the Israelis about it. You'll never hear it
in Washington, either.
Rabbi Mark Tanenbaum
Human Rights and Chanukah
Eight lights for human rights. No
more appropriate theme could be found
for Chanukah 1981, which began last
Sunday night with the lighting of the
first candle.
Chanukah commemorates the
victory of Judah the Maccabee over the
massive invading armies of the Syrian
Empire, and then the rededication of the
Holy Temple in Jerusalem which the
Syrians had defiled. The story of
Chanukah is a superlative Bible narra-
tive, but its meaning today is profound
and universal.
In effect, the Maccabean victory
was the first triumph in the struggle for
human rights, particularly for freedom of
conscience and pluralism in the history
of mankind. Had the Syrians defeated
the Maccabees in the epic struggle for
the right of every group to be itself, in
its own terms, Judaism might have
perished, and quite conceivably,
Christianity and Islam would never have
emerged. That's how fateful Chanukah
was for the whole human family.
Chanukah, 1981 hopefully will
heighten the consciousness of the Jewish
people and that of many others, to re-
kindle the Maccabean spirit in today's
troubled world, to refuse to stand by
idly, to capitulate to modern -dav tyrants
the fanatic Ayatollah Khomeinis and
Muammar Quaddafis of the world
who desecrate the dignity of human
beings created in the sacred image of
God by denying religious and political
freedom and by their unconscionable
executions and terrorist acts.
Instead of cursing the darkness,
Chanukah is a time to light a candle for
life and hope.

Reagan Shoots Himself in the Foot
State Dep't One-Noters
Speaking of the Golan Heights annexation, no-
body says a word about the failure of the mission of
special presidential emissary Philip Habib, who
came home with his tail between his legs the other
week, mumbling little nothings that referred to the
ceasefire in Lebanon and how it was still holding.
What Habib never managed to do was to get
Syria to move those missiles out of place that it
brought into Lebanon last summer, and about which
the Israel."- have issued warning after warning that
their patience with the shuttle diplomacy gig must
ultimately wear thin.
Besides which, the ceasefire still holding? The
massive buildup of Soviet arms in Lebanon under the
control of the Palestine Liberation Organization
continues relentlessly a buildup in absolute vio-
lation of the ceasefire agreement.
Bearing this little tidbit in mind, we must look
with bitter amusement at the State Department's
statement after the annexation bombshell that the
Golan's disposition is a matter of ultimate nego-
tiation For whom does that citadel of anonymous
authority speak anyway? Whoever elected any of
them to anything?
ALL THE little strumpet* ot
atademia are racing to set down
their anti-Israel sentiments in the ,
mendacious, monopolistic media
alongside those of the quack pet-
rocartelists posing as jour-
nalists as they stroke the hands
that feed them.
And so Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights is "brazen."
Or else, "it has set peace back."
What peace? Why. the peace ac-
cording to the IS State Depart-
ment out of Moscow, or
Damascus, or Riyadh, or Cairo.
It is all of apian: get Israel.
ONE OTHER thing about
ments is
that they eh cowardly. It is not
just the academics th>- journal-
ists and the media moguls pulling
string who are cowardly

when you find them. What else
but cowardly do you call principle
reduced to a whimper before the
practice of powerl What else do
you call selling wheat to the
Soviet Union no matter what
happens to l,ech Walesa'.'
Or entering into negotiations
for gigantic transfers of U.S. beef
to the Muscovites, at the s>une
time that, alter brand lahin* the,
great American iron fist over the
latest Soviet caper, you slink
away like a cur, whispering sweet
nothings that, after all, the Sovi-
et Union has a "sphere of influ-
ence" in Eastern Europe. Be-
sides, our farmers and cattlemen
need the business.
OR VOTING with the craven
Security Council to condemn
Israel at the so-called United Na-
tions that would like nothing
better than to see Israel erased
from the face of the earth the
same Security Council and
I Nations that wouldn't be
moved to go on record with an
equivalent statement of condem-
nation when the Russians mar-
ched into Afghanistan.
Mr. President,
but be sure to slug tiny Israel on
your strategic advance to the
-ear Be rare to putt out all of the
stops sanctions, threats of
"agonizing" reappraisals of the
relationship. Even tear up what
was little more than a cosmetic
memo of military understanding
with Israel in the event of a
Soviet power play in the Middle
East an understanding signed
only Nov. 30, less than a month
In the end, whom do these ac-
tions hurt? Granted, they hurt
Israel. But they also hurt the
U.S. On whom else would we be
able to rely in that entire region
for technical and military' savvy'.'
And for ideological consistency?

U.S. Votes Against Israel
The U.S. joined with the 14
other members of the Security
Council in adopting a resolution
demanding that Israel "should
rescind forthwith its decision" to
apply Israeli law to the Golan
Heights, seized from Syria in the
1967 Six-Day War. The resolu-
tion, drafted by Syria, declared
the annexation "null and void
and without legal effect." It also
called on the Security Council to
consider "appropriate measures"
should Israel fail to comply with
the terms of the resolution.
In a separate action, the UN
General Assembly voted 121-2
with 28 abstentions to adopt a
resolution condemning the an-
nexation of the Golan Heights
and calling for sanctions against
Israel. The U.S. joined Israel in
voting against that resolution.
Israeli political analysts agreed
that while Israel had expected
the U.S. to support the Security
Council's resolution, and was
prepared for harsh words from
Washington, suspension of the
strategic cooperation agreement
came as a stunning surprise. Is-
raeli policy makers had been con-
vinced that the American re-
action to the annexation of the
Golan Heights would be confined
to verbal pyrotechnics and would
not include practical punitive
One immediate consequence of
the breach with Washington was
demands within Begin's Herut
party that the government
renege on its commitment to
complete Israel's evacuation of
Sinai next April or at least
threaten to do so. They contend-
ed that would be a fitting
response to American punitive
measures. According to the
Labor daily Davar, that view is
shared by some Cabinet

et anti-Jewish propagandists and
extreme left-wing groups.
The "Occupied Palestine" film,
according to Finger, "is a slick,
so-called documentary that villi-
fies Israel and misrepresents

Although Redgrave does not
appear in the film, nor does it

is being advertised as "Presented

ductions," and in addition to
Kuwait, she has traveled to
Syria, Jordan, Abu Dhabi and
Saudi Arabia to promote it.

No. 373 Post Commander Mary
The House adopted by a 222-184
vote a bill authorizing $5.7 billion
in foreign aid of which one half
goes to the Middle East.
The bill provides for Israel, in
the current fiscal year that began
Oct. 1 and for 1983, the same
amount it received last year
$1.4 billion in military assistance
and $785 million in economic aid.
All of the economic aid is a grant
and $500 million of the military
assistance is a direct credit,
meaning it is forgiven.
Egypt's appropriations will be
the same in the next two years as
in the 1981 fiscal year. This in-
cludes $900 million in military
assistance, of which $100 million
is forgiven, and $750 million in
economic assistance, all of it a
THE BILL deleted all appro-
priations for Syria. An amend-
ment adopted here provided up to
$7 million to aid in the rehabilita-
tion of Lebanon. The bill also
specified that $11 million in each
year can be used for special re-
quirements in the Middle East,
such as regional cooperative agri-
cultural, health, energy and edu-
cational projects. Of this amount,
$4 million can be used for
projects that would promote re-
gional cooperation between Israel
and Egypt with other Middle
Eastern countries.
The voting saw a reversal of
the party positions that charac-
terized previous votes on foreign
aid in which Republican opposi-
tion had prevented adoption of a
foreign aid bill since 1979. Rep.
Peter Peyser (D., N.Y.), noting
that he has voted for all previous
foreign aid bills, said that he
opposed this bill in protest
against the Reagan Administra-
tion's cuts in domestic programs.
He noted, however, that even if
the bill had been defeated,
countries such as Israel would
receive their appropriations in
the continuing budget resolution.
waited for the Republicans to
cast their votes before voting
themselves, supported the bill by
125-98, but for many Democrats,
it was the first time they had cast
votes rgainst foreign aid. The
Republicans, traditionally op-
posed to foreign aid and able,
with the help of conservative
Democrats, to defeat such
measures in past Congresses,
supported the authorization bill
by a vote of 97-86.
The Republican reversal came
after President Reagan sent
House Republicans a special
appeal, and Secretary of State
Alexander Haig met with them
later. The House bill was worked
out by the Administration and
the Democratic-control-led For-
eign Affairs Committee. i
A House-Senate conference
committee will have to work out
differences between the House
measure and an earlier Senate bill
which authorizes $5.8 billion in
foreign aid. The funds for Israel,
Egypt and other Middle Eastern
countries are not expected to be

Vatican Radio and
Newspapers Rap Israel
For Its Action on Golan
ROME (JTA) The two
official organs of the Vatican
its radio station and the news-
paper Osservatore Romano
sharply criticized Israel for
annexing the Golan Heights at a
time when "government and
public opinion were focused on
events in Poland." The broadcast
and print media used virtually
identical language. They accused
Israel of introducing "a new fac-
tor of perturbance and tension in
the Middle East situation."
By contrast to the Vatican's
position, the Italian govern-
ment's reaction to Israel's move
was mild. The official statement
spoke only of the government's
"concern." Parliament rejected a
demand by the Communist Party
and other leftwing factions to
withdraw Italy's offer to par-
ticipate in the international
peacekeeping force in Sinai.
Campaign Tops $400,000
Led by the Pacesetter Division
of the Tampa Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal 1982 Cam-
paign, the results of early
solicitations have resulted in a 48
percent increase for the same
contributors in 1981.
George Karpay, General Cam-
paign chairman, reported this
week that $407,000 has been
pledged to the 1982 Campaign,
representing 51 contributors.
"This is the largest amount ever
realized this early in the cam-
paign and we have every reason
to be optimistic that all con-
tributors will follow the lead set
by our Pacesetter Division,"
Karpay stated.
Karpay also announced the
appointment of Herb Swarzman
as chairman of the Heritage
Division. The Heritage Division
is responsible for contributors
between $1,000 and $4,999.
Swarzman, treasurer of the
Tampa Jewish Federation, has
served as Campaign Division
chairman in previous campaigns.
He is an active member of
AIPAC and very involved in
local Republican Party activities.
Dr. Norman Rosenthal was ap-
pointed to chair the "Super Sun-
day" telethon event that will
mark the official opening Of the
1982 Campaign on January 17.

Hope Springs Eternal
TIBERIAS The black
basalt rocks scattered all about
give ample evidence of a volcanic
history here in the Tiberias area.
That there is still plenty of fire
and life deep down in the earth is
indicated by the gaseous hot
waters which come bubbling up
at numerous springs from a
depth of two kilometers down.
The water emerges at a heat of 60
degrees Centigrade (about 140
degrees Fahrenheit).
For centuries and reaching far
back into the times of antiquity,
the Tiberias Hot Springs have
drawn visitors seeking cures to
their ailments, and a rich tradi-
tion has been built up in the area.
About fifty years ago a slow-
paced modernization of the
facilities began, but only in the
East few years have the Springs
egun to emerge as a major at-
traction. The reason: energetic
private enterprise.
The THS operate two separate
bathing complexes: the health
baths, where medical attention
and special treatments are pro-
vided, and more recently, the
Young Tiberias bathing complex,
a large pool, part indoors and
part out, where the potent but
partially diluted waters are open
to all without medical certificate.
The health baths are under
medical supervision. The water,
which would be too hot for en-
durance, is tempered down to 46
degrees C (about 113 F), and then
to 38 C (about 100 F), for the
baths. Obviously one can not re-
main in the water very long. De-
tailed chemical analyses list all
the salts and minerals which are
to be found here, but one scientist
summed it all up by describing it
us flu or in a ted. brominated,
borated water. The vapors which
rise from the baths and pools are
strongly sulphurous in odor.
Radioactivity in the water was
subject of a doctorate thesis at
the Technion almost 30 years
The supply is endless. What
emerges from the depths, without
any encouragement, is much
more than can be used, and the
surplus is simply diverted into
the waste water channel and car-
ried off to the Jordan River,
below the Sea of Galilee.
There is no attempt to compete
with Lourdes, but the fact that
"miracle" cures have been
achieved. After supervised treat-
ments of from one to three weeks,
patients have been known to
throw away their crutch**.

Considering that some 300 mflf
lion people in the western world,
and 60 million in the United
States, suffer from one form or
another of the rheumatic or
arthritic diseases which respond
to the salt and sulphur springs, it
is obvious that there is an enor-
mous potential here. Spas and
health baths are commonplace in
Germany, Switzerland, Romania
and elsewhere in Europe, but still
new and strange to Americans.
In the old original domed
building, known as Solomon's
Bath, is a small marble lion, a
Roman relic, which has for cen-
turies attracted barren women. A
dip in the hot pool, and a short
period sitting astride the lion has
brought fertility to countless
women, tradition says.
The water is unsuitable for
drinking, but a special faucet is
provided for those who insist on
taking a gulp. Above is a quota-
tion from the Rambam citing the
water's laxative qualities.
It is no longer a secret that
among the Arab tourists who
cross the river each year as of the
Open Bridges policy, are many
from various parts of the Arab
world, who come to the baths for
treatment of what ails them.
Not every, tourist, on a short
visit, has the time to take the
treatments, but the recently
opened Young Tiverias Pool af-
fords the unusual pleasure of a
dip in warm water, 32 C. (90 F.).
It is 75 percent mineral water,
and 25 percent pure lake water,
but the odor and taste and feeling
are distinctive. One needs not be
too critical about the medical
value of the languid swim or re-
laxation in these waters. At least
one goes away refreshed, at once
rested and invigorated, and with
the feeling that one has had a
healthy experience, and it's the
personal feeling that counts after
all, isn't it?

librarian, is shown with one of the
posters which advertised the
Jewish Book Fair held at HUlel
School during the past month.
Terrorists' Trial Opens
BRUSSELS (JTA) The trial of two Palestinian
terrorists charged with killing a 15-year-old Jewish boy
and wounding 12 other youngsters and adults in front of a
Jewish youth center in Antwerp July 29, 1980, opened in
that city's Criminal Court.
ONE OF the terrorists, Said Al-Nasser, 26, is
charged with murder after he admitted to police that he
threw two hand grenades at the crowd of Jewish young-
sters who were waiting to take a bus to a summer camp.
The other terrorist, Mohammed Hassan, 27, is
charged with complicity. The two terrorists face life
sentences if convicted, which in Belgium means they may
be released after 20 years.

Study Says PLO
LONDON-(JTA) A study of
the international status won
recently by the Palestine
Liberation Organization con-
dudes that the PLO's claims of
success are exaggerated and that
"the substance of its relations
with individual states is far more
complicated than the PLO in-
The study by the Institute of
Jewish Affairs, (IJA), research
arm of the World Jewish
Congress, concedes that the
PLO's campaign for worldwide
diplomatic recognition has had
some success 'in spite of its
^unchanged national covenant and
the continued militant state-
ments of its leaders."
However, the PLO's successes
in the Soviet, Union Greece and
Japan are far less substantial
when analyzed in the context of
these states foreign policies, the
UA says.
Commenting on the Soviet
Union s recent announcement
that it was giving the PLO's
Moscow office full diplomatic
status, the institute writes:
'Direct negotiations with
f Brezhnev for a man like PLO
Chief Yasir Arafat, who does not
represent a state and who was
therefore received only by the
unofficial Soviet committee of
solidarity with Asian and African
countries. certainly represents
an upgrading. Turning an office
into a diplomatic mission is an
impressive change, but in terms
>f substance this move has meant
little: it has involved no change
in Soviet or PLO policy."

Volunteer drivers are being

gations Rodeph Sholom and

For the two months when serv-
ice is suspended during revalua-
tion, January and February, the
Tampa Jewish Federation and
Tampa Jewish Social Service are
asking for volunteers to utilize
their own automobiles to tran-
sport those individuals requiring
transportation assistance for
medical purposes. Families are
also asked to assist with their
relatives during this interim
Dale Johnson, a member of the
Tampa Jewish Social Service
Staff who works with senior citi-
zens, commented, "There are
alternatives available today
which did not exist when the Chai
Dial-A-Bus program began.
There is the CAA van (Com-
munity Action Agency), the only
difference being that it tran-
sports people all over the city and
sometimes the rides are long.
Also, the CAA van takes resi-
dents of the Jewish Towers shop-
ping two days a week, Tuesday
and Thursday."
."The Jewish Community
Center has another van for senior
citizen transportation, but is ex-
clusively for senior citizen
projects and outings and is al-
most in daily use for that pur-
pose," according to Johnson.
Millie Woolf, who was the ini-
tial co-chairman of the Chai Dial-
A-Bus project with Sue W. Brav,
was quite surprised when in-
formed that the service would be
completely halted for a two
month period. "Some of the
reasons Dial-A-Bus was started
have been offset by the CAA
(Community Action Agency).
Today, there are alternatives
which didn't exist seven years
ago. This whole area of senior cit-
izen transportation needs to be
reevaluated. Possibly fare in-

Israel Caught By Surprise
Israel's fierce reaction was pre-
cipitated by developments at the
United Nations, which has been
anticipated, and in Washington,
which caught the Begin govern-
ment by surprise. On Friday, the
State Department announced
suspension of the memorandum
of understanding signed
November 30 by Defense Secre-
tary Caspar Weinberger and
Sharon. Specifically, next
month's scheduled meeting of the
coordinating council set up to
implement the memorandum will
not be held.
Department spokesman Dean
Fischer announced that, in
addition, the U.S. will not hold
further discussions with Israel on
promoting U.S. purchases of de-
fense (roods and services in Is-
rael, an arrangement by which
Israel would have earned some
$200 million.
Also suspended was
authorization of Israel to use
some U.S. foreign aid funds to
buy Israel-produced goods and
the possibility of other countries
using American funds to buy
military hardware and other
items in Israel. At the same time,
however, Fischer stressed that
"the United States continues to
be concerned with the security of
Israel" and that no scheduled
arms shipments to Israel are
being delayed.
As justification for these
actions, the State Department
noted that the U.S. had earlier
"stated that we do not recognize
Israel's action (on the Golan
Heights) which we consider to be
without international legal ef-
fect" and "inconsistent with both
the letter and the spirit of (UN
Security Council) Resolutions
242 and 338."

Dutch Delegation in Moscow
A seven-member
Dutch parliamentary dele-
gation visiting Moscow has
challenged Soviet authori-
ties over the severe curtail-
ment of exit visas granted
to Jews seeking to
emigrate. They were given
stock answers, obviously
prepared in advance, in
which the authorities con-
tended that few Jews are
seeking visas and those de-
nied them are privy to offi-
cial secrets which precludes
their leaving the country.
The delegation, which included
the chairman of the three par-
liamentary coalition factions,
went to the Soviet Union to dis-
cuss European arms reduction.
But they raised the question of
Soviet Jews with members of the
Supreme Soviet and of the Com-
munist Party Central Committee.
The replies they received were
THEY WERE told that only
3,000 Jewish applicants art
awaiting visas; mat only SL
percent of the applications ,. "
jected because the aDolicanu Z
either indispensable to the SovS
economy, have knowledge Tf
security matters or have crunin,
records. ^^
The Dutch pariiamentariani
were told that many Jews occunv
prominent positions where Suu
security is involved, for exampU
in the Defense Ministry and tL
the refusal to grant them exit
visas applies to all Soviet citizens
in similar positions.
Before leaving for the USSR
the members of the delegation
signed a petition calling for the
liberalization of emigration for
Jews. The petition, which has a
target of one million signatures
was later presented to the Soviet
Embassy in The Hague.
IT WAS learned that the dele-
gates got the impression in their
talks with Soviet officials that
the crackdown on visas is linked
to the fact that most Jews who
apply for visas to go to Israel
actually go to the United States
after leaving the USSR.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And Joseph was the governor over the land And
Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down to him." (Gen. 42.6).
MIKETZ Two years later, Pharaoh dreamt a dream in two
slightly different versions. The dream terrified the king of
Egypt- but none of his sages could explain it satisfactorily.
Pharaoh's butler remembered Joseph's masterly interpretations
of dreams, and informed Pharaoh. Joseph was brought before
Pharaoh and explained the dream as forecasting seven years of
plenty that were to come to the land of Egypt, only to be suc-
ceeded by seven years of famine. He advised Pharaoh to appoint
a wise overseer to collect wheat during the years of plenty and
distribute it during the years of famine. Pharaoh appointed
Joseph himself to this post as his viceroy.
As Joseph had forecast, the Egyptian stores of wheat were
in great demand during the seven years of famine. Among those
who came to buy wheat in Egypt were Joseph's older brothers.
Joseph recognized them, but they did not know him. Joseph so
contrived that the brothers came to Egypt a second time,
bringing Benjamin, Joseph's full brother with them. Joseph
received them cordially, but then he made it seem as though
Benjamin had stolen a goblet and insisted that he stay behind as
a servant. The brothers refused to abandon Benjamin, and all
decided to return to Joseph's home.

l a television appearance, Haig
tressed the "vital importance of
or obligations to the people of
irael and guarantees to the sur-
ival of that state. Nothing has
hanged," Israeli newspapers
eported that Washington is try-
ig to contain the crisis with Is-
ael. They noted, however, that

berger's remarks, also in a TV
ippearance, were much tougher
on Israel than Haig's.
Former Premier Yitzhak Rabin
ixpressed suspicion over U.S. in-
entions in an Israeli Radio inter-
ii'w. Rabin, who was visiting the
J.S. when the Knesset adopted
he Golan law, claimed Wash-
ington was trying to use that act
s a pretext for deviating from
he Camp David framework. He
Jharged that the U.S. might now
eek to bring the Palestine
Liberation Organization into the
leace negotiations.
Vatching Egypt's Reaction
Israel is also closely watching
Egypt's reaction to the latest
vents. Former Egyptian
"remier Mustapha Khalil told
'edio Achronot in an interview
mblished that if Israel rescinds
ts Golan law, Egypt would make
6very effort to convince Syria to
oin in peace negotiations with
srael. Khalil, who heads Egypt's
tiling political party, is a deputy
if President Hosni Mubarak al-
though he holds no executive
office in government.
He told the Yediot Achronot
[correspondent in Cairo that
Egypt's relatively moderate re-
action to Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights was aimed at
preserving the peace process. "If
we had reacted stronger we would
have harmed the peace. It is our
goal to turn this peace into a
model and a precedent for any
Arab state which would like to
join," Khalil said.
He dismissed Israeli fears that
Egyptian policy would harden af-
ter Israel's evacuation of Sinai is
completed next April. "This is
your famous sensitivity," he
said. "We too have developed a
sensitivity which stems from
your lack of confidence in us."
Khalil added: "I am ready to
pledge, in the name of Egypt, if
Israel abolishes the new law,
Egypt will undertake upon her-
self to act toward negotiations
between Israel and Syria."

Argov, Israeli Ambassador to
Britain, clashed with Eric Heffer,
one of the most powerful politi-
cians in the British Labor Party,
who had savagely attacked the
election campaign of Israel's
ruling Likud bloc.
The clash took place after a
speech by Israel's Labor Party
leader, Shimon Peres, to a fund-
raising dinner of the British La-
bor Friends of Israel. Peres was
the key speaker but his remarks
were largely overshadowed by
Argov's defense of Premier
Menachem Begin against
Heffer's attack.
HEFFER HAD harked back
to the tumultous scenes at some
of Begin's election rallies which
had been prominently scretmed
on British television. He called
them frightening signs of the in-
tolerance being encouraged by
the present Israeli government.
Argov, who had been scheduled
to give merely a brief message of
greetings from his government,
passionately rejected Heffer s
complaints, and asked him
whether he would like foreigners
to judge Britain as a whole by
some of the scenes which he had
recently witnessed on television
Even before Argov's interven-
tion, the dinner, at the House of
Commons, had been marked by
the political strains between the
British and Israeli Labor Parties^
Peres had started his own speech
bv playing down differences be-
tween Israel's government and
opposition over foreign policy
and bitterly attacked the policies
of Britain and its European
Heffer. however, said that
while he supported Israel he
could not support Begin, whom
he called "not very helpful, to put
it in the mildest terms."
MICHAEL FOOT, leader of
the British Labor Party, also
showed his distaste for the Begin
government. In a message
printed in the dinner brochure, he
said that Labor Parties in Britain
and Israel faced the same kind of
domestic opponents:
"They seem wedded to a
furious anti-Socialist market
economy which could spread
devastating results."
In his speech, Peres scoffed at
the policies by British Foreign
Secretary Lord Carrington and
his European partners and reiter-
ated his own belief in linking the
West Bank with Jordan.
Expressing confidence in the
Camp David peace process, he
said he hoped that autonomy for
the Palestinians would begin to
become a reality "at least in
the Gaza Strip" before next
April's scheduled Israeli with-
drawal from the rest of Sinai.
HEFFER, who spoke after
Peres, said British Labor was
"praying" for Peres' party to re-
turn to power and also supported
Palestinian self-determination.
Thus, while Peres was in reality
speaking for Begin, Heffer was
effectively speaking for Carring-
ton. Clearly, something has
changed in the once intimate
links between the Labor Parties
of Israel and Britain, when both
were in power.
The change was made more
poignant by the fact that Sir
Harold Wilson, under whose long
leadership that friendship
flowered, presided at the dinner.
A weary and sick man, the former
Prime Minister kept his own re-
marks to a bare minimum. His
silence was more eloquent than

Text of Begin's Statement
The following is the text of Pre-
mier Menachem Begins
statement to U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis which was read out
after the Cabinet meeting by
Cabinet secretary Arye Naor:
Three times during the past six
months the U.S. government has
punished Israel.
On June 7 we destroyed the
Iraqi nuclear reactor Osirak near
Baghdad. I don't want to men-
tion to you today from whom we
received the final information
that this reactor was going to
produce an atomic bomb. We had
no doubt about that. Therefore
our action was an act of sal-
vation, an act of national self-de-
fense in the most lofty sense of
the concept. We saved the lives of
hundreds of thousands of ci-
vilians, including tens of thou-
sands of children.
Nonetheless you announced
that you were punishing us
and you revoked a signed and
sealed contract that included
specific dates for the supply of
(war) planes.
Not long after, in a defensive
act after a slaughter was com-
mitted against our people leaving
three dead (including an Ausch-
witz survivor) and 29 were in-
jured we bombed the PLO
headquarters in Beirut.
U.S. liar, No Moral Right
You have no moral right to
preach to us about civilian
casualties. We have read the his-
tory of World War Two and we
know what happened to civilians
when you took action against an
enemy. We have also read the
history of the Vietnam war and
your phrase 'body count.' We al-
ways make efforts to avoid hit-
ting civilian populations, but
sometimes it is unavoidableas
was the case in our bombing of
the PLO headquarters.
Nonetheless you punished us:
you suspended delivery of F-15
planes. A week ago, at the in-
stance of the government, the
Knesset passed on all three read-
ings by an overwhelming
majority of two-thirds the Golan
Heights law. Now you are once
again boasting that you are
punishing Israel.
What kind of expression is
this punishing Israel? Are we a
vassal-state of yours? Are we a
banana republic? Are we youths
of fourteen who, if they don't be-
have properly, are slapped across
the fingers?
Let me tell you who this
government is composed of. It is
composed of people whose lives
were spent in resistance, in fight-
ing and in suffering. You will not
frighten us with punishments. He
who threatens us will find us deaf
to this threat. We are only pre-
pared to listen to rational argu-
ments. You have no right to pun-
ish Israeland I protest at the
very use of this term.
You have announced that you
are suspending consultations or
the implementation of the
memorandum of understading on
strategic cooperation, and that
your return to these con-
sultations in the future will de-
pend on progress achieved in the
autonomy talks and on the situa-
tion in Lebanon.
You want to make Israel a
hostage of the memorandum of
understanding. I regard your
announcement suspending the
consultations on the memoran-
dum as the abrogation (by you)
of the memorandum. No a word of
Damocles is going to hang over
our bead. So we duly take note of
the fact that you have abrogated
the memorandum of understand-
The people of Israel has lived
3,700 years without a memoran-
dum of understanding with
Americaand it will continue to
live without one for another 3,700
years. In our eyes it (the U.S.
suspension) is an abrogation of
the memorandum. We will not
agree that you should demand of
ua to allow the Arabs of East
Jerusalem to take part in the
autonomy elections and
threaten us that if we don't con-
sent you will suspend the
You have imposed upon us
financial punishments and have
(thereby) violated the word of the
President. When Secretary (of
State Alexander) Haig was here iaw p'^^by ihe Knesset. To re-

ing them with anti-Semitic pro-
paganda. They will stand by our
side. This is the land of their fore-
fathersand they have a right
and a duty to support it.

Some say we must rescind the

equipment. This is therefore a
violation of the President's word.
18 it customary? Is it proper?
You cancelled an additional $100
million. What did you want to
doto hit us in our pocket?
In 1946 there lived in this
house an English General by the
name of Barker. Today I live
here. When we fought him you
called us terrorists and we
carried on fighting. After we
attacked his headquarters in the
requisitioned building of the
Kind David Hotel, Barker said:
This race will only be influenced
by being hit in the pocketand
he ordered his British soldiers to
stop patronizing Jewish cafes.
Ugly Campaign Of
To hit us in the pocketthis is
the philosophy of Barker. Now I
understand why the whole great
effort in the Senate to obtain a
majority for the arms deal with
Saudi Arabia was accompanied
by an ugly campaign of anti-
First the slogan was sounded
Begin or Reagan? and that was
nice because it meant that who-
ever opposes the deal is sup-
porting a foreign Prime Minister
and is not loyal to the President
of the United States. And thus
Senators like (Henry) Jackson
(D. Wash.), (Edward) Kennedy
(D. Mass.). (Bob) Packwood (R.
Ore.) and of course (Rudy)
Boschwitz (R. Minn.) are not
loyal citizens...
Then the slogan was sounded:
'We should not let the Jews
determine the foreign policy of
the United States.' What was the
meaning of this slogan? The
Greek minority in the U.S. deter-
mined the Senate decision to
withhold weapons from Turkey
after it invaded Cyprus.
No one will frighten the great
and free Jewish community of the
scind their faith.
We do not need to go to the
stake: we, thank God, have
strength enough to defend our
sovereignty and to defend our
rights. If it was up to me (alone) I
would say we should not rescind
the law. But as far as I can judge,
there is in fact no one on earth
who can persuade the Knesset to
rescind the law which it passed
by a two-thirds majority.
Mr. Weinberger (Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinber)-and
later Mr. Haig-said that the law
contravenes (adversely affects)
Resolution 242. Whoever says
that has either not read the
resolution, or has forgotten it or
has not understood it.
The essence of the resolution is
negotiation to determine agreed
and recognized borders. Syria has
announced that it will not con-
duct negotiations with us, that it
does not and will not recognize
us-and thus removed from
Resolution 242 its essence. How,
therefore, could we contravene
242. As regards the future, please
be kind enough to inform the
Secretary of State that the Golan
Heights law will remain valid.
There is no force on earth that
can bring about its rescision.
As for the contention that we
surprised you, the truth is that
we did not want to embarrass
you. We knew your difficulties ...
it was indeed President Reagan
who said that Mr. Begin was
right that had Israel told the
U.S. about the law (in advance)
the U.S. would have said no. We
did not want you to say noand
then for us to go ahead and apply
Israeli law to the Golan Heights.
As regards Lebanon, I have
asked that the Secretary of State
be informed that we will not
initiate a war, but if we are at-
tacked by the terrorists or the
Syrians we will launch a counter-
(JTA) The State
Department has warned Is-
rael that the change in the
status of the Golan Heights
would "violate in-
ternational law." De-
partment deputy spokes-
man Alan Romberg said
the United States' position,
had been made clear to the
Israeli government.
Romberg said that "Our view
has been and remains that any
unilateral change in the status of
the Golan Heights or any of the
territories occupied by Israel in
the 1967 (Six-Day) War would be
contrary to the UN Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338
under which Camp David and all
Middle East peace negotiations
since 1967 have been based."
The spokesman did not know
what effect the Israeli action
would have on the Camp David
process, although he noted that
(iolan was not included in the
Camp David accords. He also
could not give any reason for Is-
rael acting on the Golan at this
i time.
IN JERUSALEM the head of
the Egyptian delegation to the
working level autonomy talks
expressed "deep regret" over Is-
rael's move to annex the Golan
The Egyptian official, Taher
Shush, said that the new Israeli
law on the Golan Heights, is a
contravention of international
law, the Geneva conventions and
the Camp David framework.
Haim Kubersky, head of the
Israeli autonomy team, disputed
Shash. He maintained that
the autonomy talks were not
the torum to deal with this
matter and observed that the Is-
raeli delegates would not use it to
speak out on such matters as
Egypt's relation with its neigh-
bor Libya.
But the U.S. representative at
the working level deliberations,
Watt Claverius, supported the

Israel Hit
For Sharp
Deeds on Bank
(JTA) Ziad Abu-Eain, a
22-year-old West Bank
resident accused of partici-
pation in a bombing which
killed two boys and injured
36 other persons in Tiberias
in 1979, has been formally
ex tradited to I srael.
Deputy Secretary of State
William Clark, who had been
studying the legal aspects of Is-
rael's extradition request, signed
a surrender warrant. American
authorities in Chicago, where
Abu-Eain has been held in prison
since his arrest by the FBI in
August, 1979, turned him over to
Israeli officials. The extradition
is the first since Israel and the
U.S. signed an extradition treaty
in 1963.
CLARK SAID, in his written
statement, "I have concluded
that our treaty with Israel and
compelling law require a con-
clusion that Abu-Eain be ex-
tradited. We have been formally
assured by the government of
Israel that the crimes charged
against Abu-Eain murder,
attempted murder and iimtug
bodily harm with aggravating in-
tent are common criminal
charges which will be triad in an
ordinary civilian court."
Abu-Eain, who had been living
with relatives m Chicago whan he
Oct. 13, the U.S. Supreme Court
declined to review his case, let-
ting stand a lower court's ruling
that extradition was permissable.
This left the final decision in the
case to the State Department.
Abu-Eain a resident of Ramal-
lah, was supported by Arab-
American groups and others
friendly to the Palestinian cause.
Arab Ambassadors in the U.S.
made representations to the
State Department on his behalf.
Israel pressed vigorously for ex-
WHEN IT appeared that the
State Department was taking an
inordinately long time to decide,
San. Dan Quayle (R., Ind.) intro-
duced a sense of the Senate reso-
lution urging immediate ex-
tradition on grounds that the
accused could be freed shortly on
a writ of habeas corpus. This
drew a rebuke from the State De-
Department deputy spokes-
man Alan Romberg quoted Clark
a* saying that for the Senate to
seek to "influence" the De-
partment's decision is "a* im-
proper" aa it would have been to
try to influence the case whan it
came before the Supreme Court.
Clark make that statement in a.
letter to Senate Marjority Leader
Howard Baker (R., Term.) after
Quayle introduced hia resolution.
The Labor Alignment sharply
criticized the government for
what it called "unjust over-reac-
tion" to the wave of anti-Israel
protests and sporadic incidents of
violence on the West Bank in re-
cent days. Victor Shemtov of
Mapam, acting chairman of the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee, has sum-
moned Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon to appear before the com-
mittee to explain the new policy.
THE LABOR MKs are dis-
turbed by the harsh punitive
measures by the Israeli military,
which include blowing up houses
of families whose members are
accused of participating in acts of
violence. One house wss de-
molished in Hebron because a
youthful member of the family
tossed a Molotov cocktail at a
passing bus. The gasoline bomb
caused no injuries or damage.
Such measures ware reserved
for more serious incidents of
violence in the past. Shemtov ob-
served that "collective punish-
ment will cause a further deteri-
oration of the situation in the ad-
ministrated areas. It will tarnish
Egyptian view. He said \mA

AMNON Rubinstein of Shinui,
a prominent constitutional

that it not only flouted Reso-
lution 242 but could be construed
as flouting the Camp David ac-
cords which are based on that
