The Annual Meeting was very
special to outgoing President
Hope Barnett, and the surprise of
the evening was when Les Bar-
nett honored her with a special
gift of the creation of a philan-
thropic fund in her honor.
Noting the tremendous
amount of time and effort put
forth by his wife on behalf of the
community, Barnett remarked
that the creation of the fund was
important to insure the perpetua-
tion of her work.
The philanthropic fund to be
designated for the Young
Leadership Development Pro-
gram is extremely important to
both Les and Hope. Their dedica-
tion to the Jewish community be-
gan in that Program many years
ago and instilled a deep sense of
commitment and knowledge in
both of them as well as many
others who have been through
the Program.
The philanthropic fund, to be
known as the "Hope Cohen Bar-
nett Young Leadership Develop-
ment Fund," will be a component
fund of the Foundation for the
benefit of Tampa. The income
from investment of principal will
annually be allocated to the
Young Leadership Committee, a
standing committee of the
Federation, to be used for special

According to Joel Breitstein,
Executive Director of the
Foundation and Endowment
Consultant to the Tampa Jewish
Federation, this represents
Tampa's first "designated"
philanthropic fund. A "desig-
nated" philanthropic fund ear-
marks the purpose 'or which in-
come or principal of a gift should
be used. As such it allows a donor
to endow a program or project

that is of particular interest to
him or his family.
"This is not a substitute for
annual campaign giving" Breit-
stein added, "but rather a sup-
plement to help provide funding
for important programs and
projects both for our local Jewish
community and abroad."
Breitstein further stated that
there are a myriad of community
needs and dreams that could be
given life by establishing this
kind of endowment gift. A
philanthropic fund can be estab-
lished by making a gift of cash or
other property, and it can be
added to at any time. For exam-
ple, anyone who is interested in
young leadership development
could contribute to the Fund al-
ready established by Barnett's
initial gift.

Test of Patience
U.S. May Give Up on PLO, Too
(JTA) Israeli Ambas-
sador Moshe Arens indi-
cated that while Israel be-
lieves that the negotiations
over the removal of the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization terrorists from
west Beirut cannot go on
"indefinitely," the decision
on whether Israeli troops
will move into the Lebanese
capital may depend more
on whether the United
States loses patience with
PLO stalling than on Is-
"Even though we may be con-
vinced that the PLO is not nego
tiating seriously," there are three
partners to the negotiations
Lebanon, the U.S. and Israel,
Arens said in an interview oni
ABC-TVs This Week with
David Brinkley" program. "We
have to get to the point where the
United States also comes to the
conclusion that the negotiations
are going no place," the Israeli
envoy said.
Caspar Weinberger, in an ap-
pearance on NBC-TV's "Meet the
Press." said the U.S. would not
approve an armed invasion of
west Beirut or anywhere else.
"We are trying to avoid that," he
said. "That's why we are spend-
ing so much time in the negotia-
Both Arens and Weinberger
refused to say whether an August
1 date, reportedly mentioned by
President Reagan's special envoy
Philip Habib who is conducting
the negotiations in Beirut, was a
deadline for the talks. Arens said
that if there was a deadline, it
would serve no-purpose in stating
it publicly. Weinberger said the
date was probably the minimum
time required for the PLO to
leave Beirut and for the Israeli
and Syrian troops to begin their
evacuation of Lebanon.
On the ABC program, the
Lebanese Ambassador to Wash-
ington, Khalil Itini, said that he
had been given reliable informa-
tion that "a final agreement
should emerge in the next few
days, if not the next two days."
BUT SENS. Christopher Dodd
(D.. Conn.l and Carl Levin (D.
Mich.), who were interviewed
from Tel Aviv on the same ABC
program, said the PLO was stall-
ing. Dodd said that Yasir Arafat,
head of the PLO. was playing for
the time in order to gain political
The two Senators, who were
scheduled to meet Israeli Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, said
they would urge him to give
Habib more time. Levin said that
Israel should not go into wst
Beirut but that if force is needed
to remove the terrorists, the
Lebanese army should do it.
Dodd noted that in their talks
in Lebanon they found that
everyone wanted the PLO out.
He ntoed that there was a hatred
for the PLO and pointed out that
the destruction of Lebanon did
not start with the Israeli action in
June but had been going for
seven years because of the PLO's
involvement in Lebanon.
AS FOR the use of U.S. troops
in Beirut, Weinberger stressed
that the negotiations are now
centering on bringing them into
the country at a "minimum risk"
to the Americans, probably mar-
ines from the Sixth Fleet. He said
that their only purpose will be to
see that the PLO leaves the coun-
try and that should only take a
few days. He denied that by do-
ing this, the U.S. would be help-
ing to "salvage" the PLO.
"Our special objective in all of
this has been to try to restore
Lebanon to its sovereignty so
that its borders are secure and so
that it can't be used either as a
platform for attacks on other
countries or be invaded on a con-
stant state such as has been the
case for the past few years,"
Weinberger explained. He said
that the U.S. troops would not
remain until Lebanon regains full
sovereignty, something he con-
ceded would take a long time.
But Dodd, a member of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, who supported the possi-
bility of U.S. troops before he
went to the Middle East last
week, said he opposed it now. He
said he found in Lebanon so
many different factions among
the PLO and the Christians,
"more factions than combina-
tions to the Rubic Cube," he now
feels the U.S. force will now be
the target of some groups. He
also expressed the fear that the
U.S. would have a prolonged stay
in Lebanon and end up as "yet
another force" in the complicated
LEVIN, a member of the
Senate Armed Services Commit-
tee, said that he believes that if
negotiations were successful, a
limited U.S. operation could be
carried out.
But Sen. Charles Percy (R.,
III.), chairman of the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee, said in
an interview on the CBS-TV
"Face the Nation" program that
opposition was rising both in
Congress and the American hin-
terland to Israel's actions in
Lebanon. He predicted that Is-
rael's incursion into Lebanon
could tum out to be its "Viet-

all look forward to seeing you perform around town.
Carol and Kenny Osiason recently spent a wonderful two
weeks in England. They stayed in London for seven days but
spent four of those days viewing the tennis matches at Wim-
bledon (just outside of London). They said that watching that
caliber tennis, so close up, going on at all times on the 18 courts
at Wimbledon, was just awe inspiring.
The other week they rented a car and drove through the
English countryside (taking their life into their hands having to
adapt to driving on the opposite side of the street!). They toured
Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cotswald (known for its medieval
settings). Stonehenge. and Bath La city settled by the Romans
in 43 AD. at which time they built these elaborate baths which
still exist.) this trip was especially interesting to Carol who is
the co-owner of "The Swinging Set" tennis shop!
Dr. Myron Uman. of Potamac, Maryland, was recently in
Tampa visiting his mother. Mrs. Morrice Uman. During his

Childhood from the University of South Florida spoke on
elements of a good preschool program and ways in which the
JCC Pre-school specifically works to meet the needs of young
children. Dr. Hanley was recently a member of the team from

ime Running Short Official Declares
A senior Israeli official
tamed somberly after a
fabinet meeting that "time
\ pressing, time is running
hort." He noted that the
Cabinet ministers, who de-
foted their discussion to
he conflict in Lebanon,
fare keely aware that the
Iresent situaion cannot go
In indefinitely" and that
Israel, moreover "will not
olerate a war of attrition"
leveloping in and around
According to the official, the
eneral Cabinet feeling was that
negotiations dealing with the
^acuation of Palestine Libera-
on Organization forces from
feet Beirut "are not progressing
i they should, they are not mov-
; ahead as had been hoped."
HIS TONE seemed more
omber than at any time since the
sent negotiations in Beirut
egan three weeks ago, under the
essure of Israel's siege around
he western part of the city.
The senior official noted
ointedly that U.S. mediator
Philip Habib had predicted a
freakthrough and had now to ex-
lain why it hadn't happened.
This was not the first time
iabib's optimism had proved
^nfoudned, the official said.
Also unfounded, as far as Is-
ttfl could tell, was the public as-
ertion over the weekend made
Py Lebanese negotiator (and
ormer Premier) Saeb Salaam
^hat the PLO had withdrawn its
rlier demands for a residual
olitical and military presence in
eirut. Salaam had announced
the supposed PLO concession on
TV, but, said the Israeli official,
there was no subsequent tangible
ridence to support his state-

Defense Force and the PLO, the
senior official warned that Israel
would not countenance a "war of
attrition." He stressed that for
the past several days it was in-
variably the PLO that initiated
the artillery exchanges. Israel, he
added, was reacting with re-
straint: it Was not utilizing the
force or firepower at its disposal.
An army spokesman an-
nounced that 28 Israeli soldiers
had been wounded in heavy artil-
lery exchanges. Casualties were
reported to be heavy on both
sides as PLO forces inside west
Beirut pounded most of the
Christian areas in east Beirut.
If the Cabinet concluded that
diplomacy was leading nowhere,
it would consider other alterna-
tives to get the PLO out, the
senior official continued. This
certainly need not mean blanket
bombing "as the West did
during World War II to Dresden
or Hamburg. We have a different
morality ..." Other military op-
tions were available, he noted.
HE SAID there might well be
another Cabinet meeting later in
the week. Meanwhile this
seemed to be his implication
the Cabinet had once again de-
cided to give time to diplomacy,
while not letting up on the mili-

Ben-Avraham ZakakaDead at 87
Yefet Ben-Avraham Zakaka,
leader of the Samaritan com-
munity in Israel, died last Friday
in his home in Holon. He was 87
years old. He was burried in the
Samaritan cemetery in Kiryat
Shau. His father, Avraham
Zadaka, was the first Samari to
leave Nablus in 1905 to settle in
Jaffa, bring the Samaritan com-
munity into close contact with
the Jewish community for the
first time and laying the founda-
tion for the Israeli-Samaritan
community in Jaffa as an off-
shoot of the main community in
Nablus. Yafet Zakaka broke with
Samaritan tradition when he
married a Jewish woman in 1924.
This has become a practice fol-
lowed by many other Samaritans.

Media TestedWanting
The immense power of the advertising medium,
with its ability to sway and mold public opinion, is
hardly a point to dispute. The fact that a political
candidate's prospects, for example, may depend
upon a successful media campaign is indicative of
this power.
So it was disturbing to discover that a full page
advertisement used by an organization calling itself
"Concerned Americans for Peace has duped several
leading newspapers in the U.S. by placing an ad with
the names of six relief organizations which had never
consented or authorized to have their names listed as
supporters of the ad's message.
The ad ran in the July 11 editions of the Washing-
ton Post, New York Times, Boston Globe, Atlanta
Journal-Constitution, and several other newspapers
of equal stature. It condemned Israel's actions in
Lebanon and said in bold letters, "The People of
Lebanon Innocent Victims of a Senseless War." Be-
sides listing outrageous figures for those killed,
wounded and left homeless in Lebanon, the ad said,
"No cause could be so righteous as to dictate the des-
truction and devastation of an innocent people and
their country."
Just days later, representatives of the six or-
ganizations whose names appeared on the advertise-
ment, addressed a letter to the New York Times. The
officials of CARE, the American Friends Service
Committee, the American Red Cross, the Church
World Service, the U.S. Committee for UNICEF,
and Save the Children Federation said they were
"dismayed" that their names had been associated
with an anti-Israel advertisement and they had not
consented to have their names used in the ad. They
explained that such association of their organization
with anti-Israel ads as non-governmental relief
agencies could obstruct their ability to provide aid
and remain neutral to the fighting.
As it turned out, the address listed at the bottom
of the ad. a Los Angeles post office box number, had
never been rented to any organization by the name of
Concerned Americans for Peace. The advertising
company which placed the advertisement seemed
ambiguous in explaining iust who paid them for it.
The Los Angeles Times, for its part, escaped this
charade by double checking with the organizations to
confirm if they had authorized the use of their names
on the ad.
The paper dropped the names of the agencies after
failing to verify their authorizations. The other news-
papers, with their huge responsibility to the Ameri-
can public, would do wisely to double check with or-
ganizations in similar ads in the future. It harms the
newspaper's credibility, the relief agencies' ability to
provide aid and moreover, stymies the ability of the
American public to arrive at a clear and unbiased
opinion of the circumstances surrounding the events
in Lebanon.
Shamir Warns Against Giving
PLO a 'Political Reward'
WASHINGTON (JTAI Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir of Israel warns against trying to give the Palestine
Liberation Organization a political "reward" in order to get it
to leave Beirut. "Let no one confuse these terrorists with the
Palestinian Arabs," he said this week at a luncheon of the
overseas writers, an organization of diplomatic reporters. "Let
no one attempt out of a mistake or twisted sense of obligation
to reward the PLO with some political achievement."
While the foreign minister did not specify what he meant by a
reward, his remarks were apparently aimded at the efforts to
get the United States to drop its promise to Israel not to
negotiate or recognize the PLO.

anxious moments.
Yet. the new man on the block
at State offered a carefully ba-

fighting between Israeli forces

rorists was uppermost in many
minds. Mr. Shultz treaded the
line of senatorial questioning in a
way reflecting wide experience
and careful planning.
HE REFERRED to the legi-
timate needs and problems of the
Palesinian people" as "a central
reality of the Middle East." At
the same time, he said he recog-
nized that Israel is the closest
friend of the United States in the
Middle East, adding that no one
should dispute America's tradi-
tional commitment to the
security of Israel and U.S. readi-
ness to assure Israel the necessa-
ry means to defend itself. "The
rightness of Israel's preoccupa-
tion with matters of security can-
not be disputed," he said.
So far. who can complain?
Nonetheless, doubts are cer-
tain to persist. Ever since Mr.
Haig's dramatic departure from

dent Reagan's call on Mr. Shultz

a strong consensus has developed
that the U.S. is now beyond the
plateau of vigorous regard for the

upset by the heightened pitch for
even-handedness in our Middle
East policy in the Carter era now
are convinced there is more than
a strong tilt Arabward. Time

"The press, to my great sor-

ence sponsored by the Jewish
Community Relations Council of
New York. "They reported whit
they did not see. They were given
lots of bits and pieces, but they
did not see the picture as a

doubts and criticism voiced by
some American Jews over Is-
rael's operation in Lebanon were
an outgrowth of a sentiment that
had been stimulated by the media
here before the operation began.
"BEFORE THE war we were
not in the best shape in public

Zak said. He observed that
"there may be some misunder-
standing between us and Ameri-

But Zak predicted that once

AN EXAMPLE is described
by former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger in his well-
written and interesting second
volume of memoirs, "Years of
Upheaval." Kissinger reports on
the PLO's willingness to accept
Jordan as a Palestinian state in
return for the overthrow of King
In mid-1973, Richard Helms,
then U.S. Ambassador to Iran, I
wrote Kissinger that one of his
aides had been approached by an
associate of PLO chief Yasir
Arafat seeking a dialogue with
the U.S. on the propositions that
"Israel is here to stay" and Jor-
dan should be the place for a Pal-
estinian state.
"I considered King Hussein a
valued friend of the United
States and a principal hope for
diplomatic progress in the re-
gion," Kissinger wrote in his
memoirs. "Our aim should be to
strengthen his position, not to
encourage a group that avowed
its determination to overthrow
him in its first communication
with us."
Helms that the PLO should be
told that while the U.S. was in-
terested in hearing ideas from the
Palestinians on how to promote a
Middle East peace through nego-
tiations, "the overthrow of
existing governments in the Arab
world was not acceptable; we are
committed to the survival of the
Kingdom of Jordan."
Kissinger said that 10 days
later the U.S. received a similar
approach from the PLO through
King Hassan of Morocco. Then
on Oct. 10, four days after the
Yom Kippur War had started,
Arafat in a message to the U.S.
predicted that Israel would rout
Syria and Egypt and said the
PLO wanted to participate in the
subsequent negotiations. "The
score' it had to settle was with
Jordan, not Israel," according to
Gen. Vernon Walters had a

meeting with a PLO representa-
tive in Morocco on Nov. 3, the
first and only by the U.S., ac-
cording to Kissinger. He was in-
structed by Kissinger to tell the
PLO that the Palestinian prob-
lem was not an international con-
cern but an inter-Arab one.
"IT WAS up to the PLO to
straighten out its relationships
with other Arab states with
one proviso: We would partici-
pate in no maneuver aimed at
Jordan; the PLO's real option
was reconciliation with the Has-
hemite Kingdom not its over-
throw," Kissinger wrote.
"What applied to Jordan was
even more true of Israel. Walters
was to make clear that the United
States would oppose any threat
to the survival of Israel and any
challenge to its legitimacy." The
only result of the Walters meet-
ing with the representatives, ac-
cording to Kissinger, was to
achieve its original purpose of
preventing radical assaults on
the early stages of the post-Yom
Kippur War peacemaking.
This account demonstrates not
only the PLO effort to use recog-
nition of Israel as a tactical bar-
gaining point as was seen during
the Israeli siege of west Beirut,
but as Israelis have often
stressed, a Palestinian state on (

Herodion: The Judean Desert's 'Newest' Attraction
Royal palace, refuge for Jewish
insurgents, haven for recluse
monks, the Judean desert's
"newest" tourist attraction is
actually some two thousand
years old. Due to intensive de-
velopment work recently under-
taken by the Jewish National
Fund (Keren Kayemeth Leisrael),
an even larger flow of visitors
both local and foreign will be
drawn to a locale which may be
called the younger sister to
Masada: Mount Herodion.
Originally designed by King
Herod the Great as a govern-
mental center and his eventual
burial place, Heordion's history
continued long after the death of
its builder. During the Jewish
uprising against the Romans in
70 BCE the uprising which
made Masada famous and dur-
ing the Bar Kochba rebellion
sixty years later, it served as the
headquarters for the Zealots until
they were overcome by Roman
legions. Left in ruins for hun-
dreds of years, it then became a
refuge for Christian monks and
hermits during the fifth and sixth
centuries, and traces of their
monastery have been uncovered.
Dominating the surrounding
hill country of the Judean desert
just west of the Dead Sea with
Arad and the Negev to the south,
the curious cone-shaped moun-
tain fortress was excavated by
Franciscan monks in 1962-67.
Following the Six Day War in
1967, Israeli archeologists and
the Jewish National Fund have
taken over the restoration efforts.
What they have uncovered to
date matches with astonishing
accuracy the descriptions in the
chronicles of the ancient Jewish
historian Josephus Flavius:
He built a fortress and
called it Herodion after himself.
He enclosed the top with round
towers, filling the enclosed space
with a magnificent palace .
and had wealth lavished on it
without stint. He furnished
the ascent with 200 steps of the
whitest marble; the mount was of
considerable height, though en-
tirely artificial ... in its com-
pleteness the stronghold was a
town, in its compactness a
(TheJewuh War
Book I, 421)
Herod was among the last of
the Judean monarchs who
reigned during the second Jewish
Commonwealth. Although he
was a courageous soldier and
energetic administrator, Herod's
loyalty to the occupying Roman
rulers was complete and absolute
and he used his great diplomacy
personal charm to remain consis-
tently in their good graces. He al-
lowed no opposition to his rule
and was ruthless in the pursuit of
his goals, often at the expense of
the Jewish people and their tradi-
Despite this dubious reputa-
tion, however, Herod is remem-
bered for the scope of the build-
ing program he undertook which
saw the rebuilding of the Temple
and the Temple Mount in Jeru-
salem, and the king's palace
there. Additional palaces were
erected in Caesarea on the
Mediterranean, at Jericho, and at
Masada where he intended to im-
press Roman visitors with a show
of opulence and luxury.
In 25 BCE Herod built
Herodion in the desert some
fifteen kilometers southeast of
Jerusalem. A natural hill was
heightened by heaping debris on
it, erecting on its top the four
round towers and the circualr
wall which give Herodion its dis-
tinguishing features. Within the
wall were built several magnifi-
cently decorated palaces, a vast
rectangular courtyard and a
Roman bathhouse. Earthworks
surrounded these buildings,
making the entire structure ap-
pear from the distance to be a
cone with its peak lopped off.
Only after climbing the 200 steps
were the splendors of the palace
visible. An elaborate aqueduct
system brought water from
sources eight kilometers away,
and a number of other buildings
and an ornamental pool were con-
structed at the base.
Upon Herod's death in 4 BCE
he was buried in this desert show-
place as he had planned

HAIFA Long after
the guns have fallen silent,
and Lebanon sets about re-
building its independence,
free at last from occupation
by terrorist gangs, Israeli
soldiers and civilians alike
will tell and retell some of
the stories behind the war,
stories that did not make
headlines but were part of
the crazy quilt pattern of
the conflict. Stories like:
Denise Dehan, 37, of Kiryat
Malachi, was in the hospital
giving birth to her daughter, but
she insisted on leaving immedi-
ately thereafter to attend the
funeral of her oldest son. Mottie,
who had been killed in action.
Lebanese farmers, who for
years had to tolerate the oppres-
siveness of the terrorist gangs in
their neighborhood, lined up to
donate blood for wounded Israeli
soldiers, and money for the Israel
war effort.
ISRAELIS were urged to send
gift packages for their soldiers at
the front. They did, and included

of them volumes of poetry.
One of the major grouches of
the soldiers during the first week

Beaufort Castle, towering on a
high crag, had for years rained
deadly fire down on towns and
cities in northern Israel. It was a
prime target, and the Israel Air
Force subjected it to a bombing
which appeared to have flattened
everything on the mountain. But
when Israel soldiers picked their
way through the ruins and oc-
cupied the rubble, whose PLO oc-
cupants had all been killed and
wounded, they discovered that
the UN observation post nearby
had been totally unharmed,
despite destruction on all sides,

To Begin at the JCC
"Do you have problems with
your back? Would you like to
prevent any future troubles that
may occur? Are you interested in
an easy-going exercise program?"
If you answered yes to any of
the above questions, the Jewish
Community Center has a new
program with you in mind! Under
the direction of Jerome Cristina,
the JCC Physical Education De-
partment is pleased to introduce
the "Healthy Back Class."
Beginning Monday, Sept. 13,
the class will meet every Monday
and Thursday from 5:16-5:45
p.m. for 10 weeks.
The program is designed to be
one which each person can, and
should, stay with for life. Al-
though the class meets twice
weekly, participants are encour-
aged to practice their exercises at
least five days per week.
Pre- and post-session flexibil-
ity tests will be conducted to
measure improvements made
during the course.
The main objective of the
Healthy Back Class is to teach
lower back pain sufferers the
correct exercises needed to help
alleviate the problem. Proper
lifting techniques and posture
will be stressed. Relaxation tech-
niques will also be taught.
Although the exercises consist
of extremely light physical work
any individual with serious
medical problems (heart,
vascular, etc.) is urged to consult
with their personal physician
before taking part in the class.
The 10 week Droeram begins
Sept. 13 at 5:15 p.m. Cost is S26
for JCC members, $32 for non-
members. For more information,

Why Israel Can't Permit PLO to Stay in Lebanon
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following analysis has been com-
piled as a policy backround report by the Israel Minis-
try of Foreign Affairs Information Division in Jeru-
salem and made available to The Jewish Floridian by
the Israel Consul General's Office in Miami.
Israel is fighting against
the PLO, not the Pales-
tinian Arabs. Israel has al-
ways aspired to reach a
peaceful settlement with
the Palestinian Arabs on
the basis of mutual respect
and through direct negotia-
tion, the only way peace
has ever been made. The
root cause and substance of
the decades-long, Arab-Is-
rael conflict has been the
persistent refusal of the
Arab states (with the re-
cent exception of Egypt) to
make peace, on this or any
other basis.
Since 1964. the PLO has been
the symbol and the spearhead of
this pan-Arab policy, in the wake
of which the Middle East has
seen so much warfare, suffering
and wasted human and material
resources over the years.
THE FIGHT against the PLO
permits no compromise because
the PLO wants it that way: The
PLO's central aim has always
been, and remains to this day, the
total liquidation of the State of
Israel as the legitimate, interna-
tionally recognized expression of
the Jewish people's elementary
right to nationhood. The PLO
has never renounced that aim. It
has made it clear in its Covenant
and in countless statements by
its leaders, that it will stop at
nothing to attain that goal. In
the face of that attitude, the con-
cept of compromise becomes
meaningless. One cannot come to
terms with those whose terms in-
clude one's liquidation.
The PLO threat, therefore, is
political no less than military. So
long as the PLO. with its leader-
ship, its central organizational
structure and even a skeleton
staff, exists, it will try. by dint of
its very raison d'etre, to bring
about the dismantling of Israel.
That has been and remains its
political aim.
Recent pronouncements by
PLO leaders attempting to
project a more moderate image
are obviously tactical in charac-
ter the unreliable utterance of
desperation. If given the chance,
the PLO will try again in the fu-
ture to achieve its avowed aim by
any means that come to hand: by
terror, by direct attack, by incit-
ing or otherwise causing Arab
governments to become involved
in military clashes and all-out
wars with Israel, by intimidating

Palestinian Arab leaders so as to
keep them from entering into
peace talks with Israel, or by so-
called diplomatic means.
BEREFT NOW of meaningful
armed strength, as a result of Is-
rael's Operation Peace for Gali-
lee, the PLO will, if permitted,
content itself for the time being,
with "mere" political status and
the leeway this will provide it for
continuing its maneuving against
Israel. Meanwhile it will rebuild
its numerical, logistical and
armed strength until it is once
again in a position to resume the
battle "on all fronts." For such
an effort it needs a base, no mat-
ter how narrow. "Political
status" would give it precisely
that needed base.
The PLO debacle in Lebanon
presents all who have suffered
from the PLO menace and form
international terror with an un-
parelleled opportunity to root out
this force for destruction. The op-
portunity, and the responsiblity,
are not Israel's alone.
Lebanon has been subjected,
for years, to devastation, waste,
suffering and death. It has been
deprived of its independent exis-
tence as a sovereign state. Many
countries have suffered at the
hands of PLO terror mostly
through the terrorist activities of
underground organizations
working hand-in-glove with PLO
headquarters in Beirut. All these
nations have an abiding interest
in seeking this scourge removed.
NOBODY IN the Arab world
is keen to take in the PLO.
Neither Syria, nor Jordan, nor
Egypt, nor Saudi Arabia, nor any
other Arab country seems ready
to assume the obvious risks in-
volved in harbouring the mem-
bers and facilities of this trouble-
some organization. That is why it
ensconced itself in Lebanon in the
first place when, in 1970, King
Hussein expelled it from Jordan:
The Lebanese government was
not strong enough to resist. And
that is why the PLO is now so re-
luctant to leave Lebanon. It is
experiencing great difficulty in
finding an alternative base for its
To allow this festering sore to
remain in Beirut, or anywhere
else on Lebanese soil, would sim-
ply keep the wound open and al-
low it to fester still more. The
PLO seeks to continue its nefari-
ous activities in the only place in
which it has been able to operate
in the past twelve years. Israel
will not allow this to happen. The
enlightened world and Lebanon
itself have every interest in keep-
ing the PLO from re-establishing
itself in Lebanon.
In line with their usual prac-
tice, thousands of PLO men have
entrenched themselves in the
heart of residential West Beirut.
Once again, this has created
acute danger to the safety of the
Lebanese as well as Palestinian
men, women and children from
behind whom these PLO forces
are sending out volleys of artil-
lery and small-arms fire against
the Lebanese and I sraeli forces in
East Beirut and beyond. Con-

tion of the rules of warfare should
be strong and universal.
ISRAEL, keenly aware of the
implications of this situation, is
anxious to avoid harming inno-
cent civilians. With this in mind,
the Israel Defense Forces have so
far refrained from entering West
Beirut to root out the terrorists,
giving diplomacy a chance to re-
move the terrorists through
negotiation. Israel has, moreover,
repeatedly warned the civilian
population of West Beirut to
leave the city, so as to be out of
the line of fire. Hundreds of
thousands have heeded Israel's
call, many moving south into the
area now controlled by the Israel
Defense Forces; in numerous
cases, indeed, these are people re-
turning home to towns and vil-
lages in southern Lebanon from
which they had previously been
driven by the PLO.
Every effort must be made to
prevent harm from coming to the
civilian population still remain-
ing in West Beirut. However, to
do so without thoroughly rectify-
ing the untenable situation
which, over seven years, has
brought Lebanon to the brink of
Shamir Denies Coolness

of Israel denied that he found a
coolness toward him by President
Reagan when he met with him at

State Department) in the after-

with Secretary of State George
Shultz, including a working
"Of course there are some diffi-
culties" between the United
States and Israel. Shamir added.
But he stressed as he had this
morning that the two countries
had "identical goals in Lebanon."
Pool reporters who attended
the picture-taking session at the
opening of the meeting at the
White House said there was none
of the usual friendly small talk
that normally marks those occa-
sions. The reporters noted that

with potholes from the heavy
shelling. Along the way. we saw
the first signs of war: blackened
cars lying in ditches, houses re-
duced to rubble, while others,
white flags hung on their roofs,
appeared unscarred. Off the road,
farmers had gone back to work in
their fields and banana groves,
which had been left largely un-
l ramp led by the Isareli forces.
Despite the unfamiliar terrain,
our military escort, equipped
with large-scale topographical
maps, seemed certain of himself.
Asked how long the IDF would
remain in Lebanon, Bawly said
the occupation would be short:
"We don't want to be here. We
are here because we had no other
Some 45 kilometers up the
coast we entered Sidon, a city of
some 70,000 people which 2,000
terrorists had turned into a PLO
military center and staging area,
according to IDF spokesmen.
The outskirts of Sidon had re-
mained virtually undamaged, but
as we reached the central district
we saw how much havoc the war
had wrought. Many buildings
were reduced to rubble.
OTHERS WERE pockmarked
from shelling. Not all neighbor-
hoods were hit and some build-
ings in the main plaza, including
a few high-rises, were only lightly
damaged, an indication that the
bombing and shelling had not
!>een indiscriminate. We moved
cautiously in the city which, des-
pite the large presence of IDF
troops, was not yet secure.
Only that morning, PLO ter-
rorists had taken over a mosque,
threatening to kill their civilian
hostages. Firing and shelling
could be heard in the distance.
Next to a large, now destroyed,
building that had housed an edu-
cational center, IDF clean-up
crews, using a crane and winches,
were busy removing crates of
weapons found in the basement.
The cache held over 50 tons of
Soviet-made arms, including
Strella and Saggar-type missiles,
Kalashnikov rifles, mortar
rounds, and ammunition. The
boxes were marked with Russian
or Chinese lettering, and many
showed Tripoli (Libya) as the
port of embarkation, thirty such
caches were found in Sidon alone.
"THE PLO would drive
around the city in their Russian
jeeps sounding their sirens and
waving rifles," said Halil Andris,
a Lebanese Moslem who owned
the office building next door to
the PLO arsenal. Asked how he
felt about Israel's action, Andris
answered, "We don't hate the Is-
raelis. We are glad the PLO are
out of Sidon." Andris added that
he hoped in the near future Leba-
non could run its own affairs, un-
der the leadership of President
"This was not a spasmodic
act," said Col. Bawly as we drove
through Sidon. "What we did
here was the result of a lack of
action after a year of repeated
warnings that Israel could not al-
low an intolerable situation to
continue," he stated.
"We could not let 60,000 set-
tlers in our northern settlements
be sent to the shelters or evacu-
ated every time the PLO decided
to fire on them." Bawly shook his
ON THE STREET, despite the
physical damage in Sidon and the
grisly reports emanating from
Beirut of wanton civilian killings,
we saw no evidence of such
casualties. Most of the civilians
had found refuge in their base-
ment shelters or the nearby hills,
having been warned in advance
by leaflets dropped from Israeli
planes to leave the town. Prior to
the ground assault by the IDF,
advance fighting units called out
to the remaining residents to
gather on the beach to avoid be-
ing injured.
A talk with one of the evacu-
ees, an elderly Danish woman
married to a Palestinian from the
nearby Ainhilwe refugee camp,
supported this account. We saw
her in a grove outside Sidon
where several hundred refugees
had gathered waiting to be relo-
cated III permanent quarters.
"About three hours before the
Israelis attacked Ainhilwe, they
warned us by megaphone to get
out. Most of us did," she said.
THE WOMAN did not hide
her dislike for what the Israeli
forces did to her camp, which was
a stronghold for the terrorists,
according to an IDF spokesman.
"But they have treated us well
since then," she said, referring to
the daily delivery of essential
human needs.
"It is true that there were some
civilian victims among the
casualties," acknowledged
Bawly, whose sensitivities to the
plight of the Lebanese were evi-
dent throughout our visit. "But
not nearly approaching the
figures issued from Beirut."
Bawly's estimate, based on i
formed sources, was in the hu .
dreds, not thousands.
"Israeli soldiers go to great
lengths, often at their own risk,
to avoid hurting noncom-
batants," he said. "But if some-
one can show us how to prevent
such suffering when terrorists
use civilians as hostages and
shields, we are more than willing
to learn."

Bernardin's Appointment Hailed
The American Jewish Committee is hailing the
designation of Archbishop Joseph Bernardin as
Archbishop of Chicago, and praising the Arch-
bishop's "history of friendship and constructive
cooperation with the Jewish community" and
"commitment to Catholic-Jewish understand-
In a letter to Archbishop Bernardin from Rabbi
Marc H. Tanenbaum, AJC's national director of
interreligious affairs, the human relations agency
notes "with especial warmth and appreciation"
an address the Archbishop gave at a 1975 AJC
meeting, "during which you made such important
affirmations about the Nazi holocaust, the State
of Israel and Palestinian rights, the cause of
Soviet Jews and other oppressed people, and the
imperative need for our collaboration in social
justice and humanitarian causes."
"We are confident," the letter continues, "that
you will bring that same spirit of commitment to
Catholic-Jewish understanding and solidarity to
your ministry in Chicago."
Edwin Shapiro, president of the Hebrew Immi-
grant Aid Society, has been elected a vice presi-
dent of CARE.
Since 1979, Shapiro has represented HI AS as a
board member of the non-profit relief agency,
whose world headquarters are in New York.
In 1981, CARE provided aid valued at more
than a quarter of a billion dollars to needy people
in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the
Middle East. In Israel, CARE furnishes a variety
of aid services, among them vocational training
for the handicapped and the young, and food pro-
grams for the needy, including ill and retarded
When American Christian broadcasters at the
"Voice of Hope" radio and TV facilities in
southern Lebanon found they had an increasing
number of shells to duck in the latest conflict in
the Middle East, station manager Chuck Pollak
responded by expanding radio broadcasts from 19
to 24 hours a day and initiating overseas short-
wave services.
Manager Pollak was unperturbed, even
challenged, by the PLO's intensified attempts to
knock out the popular station, which under the
call letters WORD entertains, inspires and in-
forms the local population with country and rock
music, Bible readings and news reports. He sums
it up: "Fundamentally, we have God on our

behind the operation, founded by High Adven-
ture Ministries, an evangelical organization in the
United States, to send a a message of solidarity
and faith to Lebanese Christians. The radio
broadcasts, which began two and a half years ago,
and TV broadcasts, launched shortly after, are
finding appreciative audiences.

Dr. Robert Gordis, president of the JWB Book
Council, announced the publication of the new 19-
page annotated bibliography of works of both
fiction and non-fiction.
"Approximately 14 percent of the Jewish pop-
ulation is over the age of 65," Dr. Gordis said.
"Many of these people are visually impaired.
These and others whose eyesight is diminished
require reading material in large type."
Compiled by Helene L. Tuchman, the publica-

Rabbi Schulem Rubin, newly-elected chairman
of the Council of Young Israel Rabbis, has an-
nounced plans by the group to provide "organized
support and direction for the expanded efforts of
the lay leaders of the Young Israel movement."
Rabbi Rubin, who is the spiritual leader of the
Young Israel of Pelham Parkway, New York, and
was elected to the chairmanship at the convention
of the National Council of Young Israel in June,
pledged to support the new initiatives of the
Young Israel movement in the fields of adult
Jewish education and Kashruth, and in Young Is-
rael's expanded programs to reach youth on the
college campus.
Rabbi Benjamin Blech, of the Young Israel of
Oceanside. was elected vice chairman of the rab-

leader of ancient days, Joshua. These are the New
Jewish New Year stamps.
One of the communities marking its 100th year
is Rosh Pinna, for which an IS 2.50 stamp has
been issued. Often called "the mother of the
Upper Galilee settlements," the community can
trace its roots back to 1878, during Turkish rule
In that year, a number of families from Safed
settled on the site of the Arab village of Jauni.
In 1882, Rosh Pinna was firmly established
when a group of Rumanian immigrants joined
these pioneers.
Kenneth J. Bialkin, national chairman of the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, has told
Costa Rican President Luis Alberto Monge that
the American Jewish community "applauds and
supports his country's dedication to democracy."
President Monge met late last month with rep-
resentatives of ADL and the American Jewish
Committee at the League's headquarters in New
Bialkin praised Costa Rica's willingness to
embrace a strong relationship with Israel and de-
scribed the recent return to Jerusalem of the
Costa Rican embassy as "a courageous political
action, a signal and wave of the future."

Full Text of Letter to Israel's Ambassador Arens
The text of the letter Interior Secre-
tary James Watt sent to Israel's Am-
bassador Moshe Arens, as provided to
the press by Thomas DeRocco, the
Interior Department's Deputy Direc-
tor of Public Affairs, stated:
It was a delight spending some time
with you Sunday evening at dinner.
Your remarks were extremely well de-
livered and interesting.
I appreciate the opportunity of dis-
cussing with you the need for a strong
energy self-reliant America.
If we do not reduce America's de-
pendency upon foreign crude energy,
there is a great risk that in future
years America will be prevented from
being the strong protector and friend
of Israel that we are and want to be.
If the friends of Israel here in the
United States really are concerned a-
bout the the future of Israel, I believe
they will aggressively support the
Reagan Administration's efforts to
develop the abundant energy wealth of
America in a phased, orderly and en-
vironmentally sound way. If the liber-
als of the Jewish community join with
the other liberals of this nation to op-
pose these efforts, they will weaken
our ability to be a good friend of Israel.
Your supporters in America need to
know these facts.
I look forward to opportunities to
speak to groups of your supporters in
this nation so that I might share with
them the truth of what this Adminis-
tration is trying to do for America.
Does he really believe there is
nothing wrong with the idea that
the way to reach them is through
a communication to the Embassy
of Israel?"
WATT SAID in a telephone
interview with The New York
Times that "The letter does not
threaten anyone." He said he
stands by it because "Its inten-
tions were right and it was pro-
perly worded."
The Washington Post quoted
him as saying, "There's no threat
intended. To have a threat, you
have to say we'd do something if
they (American Jews) didn't do
something." His message, he
claimed, was, "If you don't sup-
port this, the Reagan Adminis-
tration is going to go ahead doing
what's right whether you support
it or not."
The Secretary, appearing over
the weekend on Mutual Radio's
"The Larry King Show," a call-in
talk program, explained that his
letter to Arens was a follow-up to
a friendly discussion he had had
with the envoy at an Israel Bonds
dinner last month at which the
Ambassador was the principal
THE LETTER came to light
when it appeared last week in the
Washington Times, a recently es-
tablished daily of strong conser-
vative views. There was no indi-
cations how the newspaper ob-
tained the month-old letter.
Watt, himself an ultra-conser-
vative, had been a controversial
figure since his appointment by
Reagan as Secretary of Interior.
He has been under attack by
many politicians and conserva-
tionist groups for alleged despo-
liation of publicly owned land for
private commercial exploitation.
His critics represent the political
spectrum from main line conser-
vatives through moderates and
The latest controversy sur-
rounding Watt stemmed from his
recent decision to make one
billion acres of outer continental
shelf available to oil and gas de-
velopers and his plans to permit
oil and gas exploration and
drilling in Federal wilderness
New Hardships
For Israel's Universities
Lebanese conflict has produced
new hardships for Israel's uni-
versities, such as the mobiliza-
tion of faculty members and stu-
dents, a curtailment of scientific
research and new financial
burdens resulting from cuts in
the nation's civilian budget, ac-
cording to Gen. Shlomo Gazit,
president of Ben Gurion Univers-
ity of the Negev in Beersheva.
Gazit, the former head of
Israeli intelligence, who is in the
United States on behalf of the
Israel Bond Organization, told a
group of the American Associ-
ates of the university that the
day the war began "we felt the
impact in Beersheva. On the first
day, most of our male students
and faculty under 40 were
mobilized, leaving behind mostly
women and Arab students."
GAZIT SAID that Israeli in-
stitutions of higher learning face
"an extremely difficult period in
the coming months. "As one
example, he cited new military
regulations, extending by three
months those serving in the mili-
tary, and 60 to 70 days the new
service requirement for the Re-
serves. "This will seriously affect
the study program of many of our
students, "he said.
He further mentioned reduc-
tions in the government's civilian
budget by three to five percent,
which Gazit said for Ben Gurion

the mobilization of some faculty
members and graduate students
will be a "set back" for the uni-
versity advanced peacetime re-
search projects in such fields as
agriculture, engineering, energy
and industrial technology.
University's Efforts Help Build
Robert Arnow, president of the
American Associate of Ben
Gurion University, stressed that
these scientific projects are help-
ing to turn "the barren wilder-
ness of the Negev into a produc-
tive and comfortable environ-
ment. Since the Negev represents
Israel's largest remaining uncon-
quered frontier, our efforts con-
stitute a vital part in the building
of peace in this part of the
the university's educational,
cultural and research programs
had already pioneered new solar
energy advances, irrigation and
agricultural technologies, that
produce lush fruits and vegeta-
bles with salty water, drought re-
sistant plants and food and
fodder crops which flourish in
arid soil.
In his presentation, Gazit said:
"We have felt this war much
more directly. Ben Gurion Uni-
versity has already had six
casualties six boys killed in
action, three students and the
rest the sons of our faculty and
staff. We have many other young
boys who are wounded in the
hospital, most of them lightly,
but some more difficult cases.
This has very much affected
everyone at the university."
Gazit indicated that the uni-
versity was setting up special
machinery to personally work
with and assist those now serving
in the Israel Defense Force so
that they could be prepared for
makeup exams and classes that
they have missed during their
military service. He further
stated that the university has de-
veloped a joint commission in
cooperation with the military to
find "flexibility" for those young
people who have to serve addi-
tional time in the army, so that
they can begin their academic
year without too great a loss of

participant in the
International Conference
on the Holocaust
and Genocide
June 19.1962
In June Hans and Use Juer-
gensen journeyed to Israel to
attend the International Con-
ference on the Holocaust and
Genocide, which was sponsored
by Israeli and American Univer-
sities. The conference was held at
the Tel Aviv Hilton.
The conference was planned
to bring together what has been
learned about the past in order
that more people can have a fu-
ture.' These were introductory
words by Dr. Israel Chamy. ex-
ecutive director of the conference.
Juergensen. professor of
humanities at the University of
South Florida and special consul-
tant to the United States Holo-
caust Memorial Commission, was
invited to deliver a lecture at the
conference. His paper was on the
rise of anti-Semitism in German
higher education in the 19th Cen-
tury. In the lecture he said,
while we understand the
economic and sociological
conditions which resulted in the
rise of Hitler between 1920 and
caust Conference of Philadelphia.
All the time they were in Israel
the Juergensens felt the ever con-
stant nagging concerns with
what was happening in Lebanon.
All of the people that they spoke
to were in favor of the incursion
into Lebanon, but when the
fighting took them beyond the 28
kilometers, controversy began.
Many Israelis are now in favor of
negotiating with the PLO and
they are questioning the new
settlements on the West Bank.
"There must be compromises out
of the violence, barriers must be
lifted, something must be done."
Juergensen said, "realities don't
allow you to be that pure. Israel
has its faults." With all the con-
flict and all the unrest, Israelis
still feel that Israel is the only
place to live.

with more that 200 participants
from around the world, and a
very rich experience. Those par-
ticipating were historians,
psychologists, psysicians. theo-
logians, authors, educators, so-
ciologists, and a poet. Dr. Juer-
gensen was invited to read one of
his poems "Yad Vashero." from
his book "Journey Toward the
Roots." during the session on
Nuclear Weaponry.
The conference was not
without its complications. The
Turkish government pressured
the Israelis into barring the
Armenian delegation, because
they were going to discuss the
conflict of 1915. Since the feeling
was very strong that if the
Armenians were allowed to at-
tend, difficulties would arise
making it more difficult for
Turkish Jews and the Iranian
Jews, who must exit Iran
through Turkey ,
Elie Wiesel. president of the
conference was faced with the
dilemma of postponing the con-
ference or changing its locale.
With this pressure from the Isra-
el Ministry of the Interior, he
withdrew as did many other
scholars and sponsors, including
Frank Reynolds of the American
Broadcasting Company
Professor Franklin Littell. pro-
fessor of religion. Temple Univer-
sity, gave the keynote address

conference. He was part of the
military government in Germany

began questioning why nothing
was done about the Holocaust.
