Massacre Inquiry Criticizes Begin,
But Says Sharon Should Resign
JERUSALEM The commission of
inquiry report into the massacre at the
Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Bei-
rut was released Tuesday, and it found
Prime Minister Menachem Begin guilty
of "indifference" to the slaughter last
September in which, say the Lebanese,
328 persons were confirmed killed and
991 are still listed as "missing."
THE THREE-MEMBER commis-
sion, constituted last October following
worldwide condemnation of the massacre
and strong public reaction in Israel itself
against Israel's involvement in Lebanon,
also suggested in Tuesday's report that
the Lebanese Army and the United
States representative then in Beirut may
have shared indirectly in the responsi-
bility.
But, noted the report, it was the com-
mission's duty to examine Israel's role
only, and not to question either the
Americans or the Lebanese on what
they did or did not do.
The report, speaking of Prime Minis-
ter Begin, said that he and the head of
the Mossad, Israel's intelligence service,
whose name is secret, "bear some re-
sponsibility" for the events of Sept. 16-
18, but it recommended that neither be
dismissed.
THE COMMISSION said of Begin
that his "lack of involvement in the en-
tire matter casts on him a certain degree
of responsibility." It wondered about his
unquestioning acceptance of the Minis-
ter of Defense (Ariel Sharon)and the lat-
ter's "optimistic and calming reports .
that the entire operation was going on
without hitches and in a most satisfac-
tory fashion" Continued on Page 5-

Great excitement is antici-
pated for the Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Ap-
peal "Super Sunday," this Sun-
day. Feb. 13, at the offices of
Thomson McKinnon Securities,

peal Campaign will be asked to

volunteers will also be contacting
new arrivals in our community
who have not been approached to
participate in the annual cam-
paign.
Approximately 50 percent of
the money raised will go directly
to support our local and national
agencies. Beneficiary agencies of
the annual campaign are: the
Tampa Jewish Community Cen-
ter, the Tampa Jewish Social
Service, the Hillel School of
Tampa B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation at University of
South Florida, River Gardens
Home for Aged, Florida Govern-
ment Affairs Office, and the Jew-
ish Floridian. The additional 50
percent of the funds raised will go
to meet human needs and social
services in Israel.
Karpay and Rosenthal have
announced that "Super Sunday"
T-shirts will be provided to ail
volunteer workers and each
worker and their family are in-
vited to participate in a "Thank
You" dinner to be held in the
auditorium of the Jewish Com-
munity Center beginning at 6
p.m. The pizza and salad dinner
will be topped off with what else
a "Super Sundae."
"We urge the community to
answer their phone on Feb. 13 to
answer the call to life," Rosenthal
and Karpay concluded.

Histadrut Hears
Hot Words
TEL AVIV (JTAI Verbal
violence that nearly escalated to
a physical clash marked a debate
here over whether the Hevrat
Ha'Ovdim. a Histadrut holding
company, should continue to par-
ticipate in the construction of
housing for new settlers on the
West Bank.
The Hevrat Ha'Ovdim Council
met to consider the issue after
Histadrut decided reluctantly
last week to continue construc-
tion work on the West Bank in
order to avoid unemployment for
its members. The matter was re-
ferred to the trade union federa-
tion's Central Committee which
was urged to take a final stand
within two months.
But disorder reigned at the
Council meeting where Ram
Cohen, representing the small
leftwing Sheli faction, accused
Likud, a minority within His-
tadrut. of following an expan-
sionist policy on the West Bank.
Histadrut must have nothing to
do with such a policy. Cohen said.
He maintained the construction
work on the West Bank was at
the expense of urgently needed
housing for poor people in Israel.

Well, our friend Julia Flora is at it again! This lovely
woman, who is in her eighties, seems to have more vim. vigor,
and pep. than most anyone I know. Last year we told you about
the golf tournament that she had won at Palma Ceia with
Rhoda Karpay. During the spring baseball season, she rarely
misses a little league game that her grandsons. Paul and Charles
Kothenberg play in. that is except when she is chasing after
their little brother. Sam Rothenberg who isn't old enough to be
out there on the field yet. These three are sons of Marysue and
rred Kothenberg. WeU. this month. Julia has branched out into
modeling! More than 300 women gathered recently at Palma
Cea Golf and Country Club to see a fashion show which was a
miniature theatrical production. The program was compiled of
music, dancing, and clothing in various hues, to demonstrate
color analysis. A large screen onstage framed a background of
ever-changing seasonal slides. The star of the show was
definitely Julia Horn. She modeled two outfits, to much ap-
plause by the unsuspecting audience. Though tuxedo clad
escorts were on the stage to offer their arms in assistance to
Julia, she would have nothing of it. I mean, when you are born to
boogie, why let anyone stand in your way, huh, Julia'" Good
for you we think you are marvelous!

By FRANCI RUDOLPH
Due to the very favorable
response to this article last year,
the Tampa Jewish Federation's
Women's Division felt it would
be timely and appropriate to
print this again during the midst
of our very critical 1983 cam-
paign. For many of our potential
givers, it responds to your ques-
tions about why a Women's
Division.
A woman asks me: "Why is
there a Women's Division?" I
respond: "You and your husband
are dues-paying members of a
synagogue-temple: why then is
there a sisterhood and why do
you belong to it?"
A woman asks ma: "Why
should I be part of Woman's
Division, when my husband gives
a gift to the TJF?" I respond:
"You and your husband are
patron members of the Tampa
Museum. Why, then, are you a
member of Friends of the Arts,
paying dues and supporting its
fundraisers?"
A woman asks me: "Way
should I give to Women's Divi-
sion, when I'm already contri-
buting with my husband?" I
respond: "You and your husband
are contributors to the Florida
Gulf Coast Symphony in addition
to being season ticket .holders.
When then do you give to the
Tampa Symphony Guild, paying
dues and otherwise supporting it
financially?"
A woman asks me: "If all our
money is really earned by my
husband, and I have no separate
income, why should I support
Women's Division?" I respond:
"Your husband contributes to
the Annual American Cancer
Society drive when solicited.
When then, do you pay dues to
the Sword of Hope Guild and
support their fundraisers?"
"Well," these women reply,
"I'm beginning to see your point.
But all of these organizations are
still different. There are
education and social aspects as
well as definite impact on the
community with those other
guilds. There is an opportunity to
become involved beyond simply
giving money or soliciting it."
"Well," I respond, "There is a
lot more to Women's Division
than Campaign. The Tampa
Jewish Federation Women's
Division 'Auxiliary' or 'Guild'
(for those women who need those
titles to better understand what
the organization is truly about) is
a vital women's organization in
our community."

By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) France is
, planning to send additional
troops to Beirut to reinforce the
multinational force. The decision
was reportedly taken as a result
of the recent attacks against
members of the French contin-
gent. In the latest of a series of
such incidents, two Frenchmen
were wounded in the city's sea-
front.
Defense Minister Charles
Hernu has asked the Foreign Le-
gion command to prepare for the
dispatch of several companies
which will join the 1,654 French
"Women's Wednesday," an
intensive day of workshops run
by professionals on topics of
relevance to Jewish and non-
Jewish women alike in today'a
society with lunch and-or dinner
and with a stimulating keynote
speaker. Last year's session waa
a tremendous success offering
such workshops aa: "Developing
Personal Potential." "Time
Management.'' "Stress Manage-
ment." "Job and Volunteer
Opportunities for Women,"
"Financial Planning." etc. Thia
year. "Women's Wednesday" is
scheduled for December 2.
Exciting plans for an inform-
ative, provocative day and
evening are being planned.
In addition, all of the Women's
Division Campaign evente last

Be Sure You Answer
The Phone On Suner Sunday
Super Sunday is scheduled for this week-
end, Feb. 13. On that day, each one of us
will be called upon to help in the work of the
Tampa Jewish Federation through its 1983
United Jewish Appeal-Israel Emergency
Fund.
On that day, each one of us will be asked
to show that we care for the destiny of
Israel. For the fate of Jewish political
prisoners in Russia. For untold numbers of
American Jews in communities scattered
across the country who need help, whether
in the form of a hot meal, a low-rental
housing unit, or one of the many other
social services of our Jewish agencies
dedicated to these important programs.
All of that is for this weekend, Feb. 13.
Our suggestion is that you plan to sign
up as a Super Sunday volunteer. Super
Sunday headquarters on Sunday, Feb. 13
will be at Thompson McKinnon at the
Mack Center. Why not help out, when the
TJF-U JA of the Federation will be tele-
phoning Tampans throughout the com-
munity in a direct appeal to them to assist
in its programs?
One way would be to act as a phone
volunteer. You can choose the session or
sessions you prefer to assist in this gigantic
telephone project Feb. 13. Your calls to
potential gift-givers may very well help
make the difference between, say, just a
successful and a smash campaign.
What we need in Tampa, across the
nation and throughout the world Jewish
community is a smash campaign.
The important thing is to participate by
giving of your time. TJF-UJA needs you
now. Volunteer now. And remember, when
the phone rings, ANSWER THE CALL!
Make it a Super Sunday.

Ran Shows His Own Great Line
WHEN PRESIDENT Reagan
was told about the heroic exploit
of Capt. Charles Johnson, he im-
mediately called up the marine
officer who single-handedly
turned back a wave of mean,
nasty, rotten Israeli tanks just
outside of their lines in Beirut.
As the phone rang overseas,
the President's heart thumped
with both pride and annoyance
all at the same time. Just as the
Captain picked up the phone, the
President decided he'd better
show only his pride. A secret leak
of the transcript of the call has
given me a most fortunate word-
for-word accounting of this
immortal conversation.
Ron: This is the President.
Congratulations.
Chuck: The President of what?
I'm just a Wisconsin farm-boy
who did my duty. Hie, 'scuse me.
Ron: (Aside to Caspar Wein-
berger). What a hayseed. He says
he doesn't know me. Someone
ought to let him have it smack in
the keister. And he has the hic-
cups. Sounds like indigestion
to me. Are they eating too good
over there?
Cappy: Do you want him
demoted? Or maybe have him as-
signed as special agent to Gen.
Sharon representing the Penta-
gon? But I should warn you that
I'm recommending him for spe-
cial commendation before you
decide.
Ron: (Waving his hand for
silence). The President, Chuck
... Of the United States .
President Reagan.
Chuck: Oh Lordy, my
oologies, Sir. We have been in-
ructed. sruced that is, not to talk
to those Israelis or anyone else of
importance 'roun' here. Least-
ways anyone who thinks they're
important. I thought you might
be one of them. My 'pologies.
Ron: Good show, Chuck.
Chuck: Sir?
Ron: (His hand on the phone,
aside to Weinberger). He's a
smuck.
Cappy: The word is shmuck,
Mr. President. There's a sh there,
like in keep quiet.
Ron: (He removes his hand
from the phone to address Capt.
Johnson). Good show. (Speaking
slowly). I said that was a good
show.
Chuck: Thank you, Mr. Pres-
den. I mean Residen. I jus' tole
em like it was. If they wanted to
pass, they'd havta go over my
dead body.
Ron: Great script. Chuck. It
reminds me of an old movie of
mine. Did you ever see "King's
Row"? Remember Ann Sheridan?
(The President stands thought-
fully, suddenly saying nothing.
After a moment. Secretary Wein-
berger digs a finger into his ribs.)
Cappy: Tell him he acted for
the good of our country.
Ron: You acted for the good of
our country, Chuck.
Cappy: And that those Jews
there will have to learn who is
boss.
Ron: Captain, I tell you that
was a great script. Better than
anything I ever had handed to
me to play. Even better than
"King's Row." Did you see
"King's Row?" With Ann Sheri-
dan? What you did was to let the
Israelis, our good friends and
allies, know that at times there'll
naturally be differences between
us. And that they must respect
these differences.
Chuck: I was just doin'
duty as I, hie, saw it.
Ron: Oh, great line, Chuck,
great line. Nobody ever handed
me a line like that. But you need
some lessons in elocution. Have
the hiccups, my boy?
Cappy: Say he's in the great
tradition of the Marine Corps.
They shall not pass Damn
cut,
the torpedoes, that sort of thing.
Ron: Captain, I must be frank
to say that your great perfor-
mance there was in the great tra-
dition of our great Marine Corps.
They shall not pass Damn
the torpedoes, that sort of thing.
Our nation is rightly proud of
you. Captain. Secretary Wein-
berger is standing here by my
side, and he wants you to know
that he's recommending you for a
special citation.
Chuck: Jus' doin' dootee.
Ron: (Aside to Weinberger, his
hand on the phone). No one ever
let me at a script like that one.
He's got the hiccups again,
and his speech sure needs shar-
pening up. (Pauses. Gets angry).
Maybe John Wayne or even Gre-
gory Peck had scripts like that,
standing up to three tanks that
way. Never me.
Cappy: Say he contributed to
your Middle East peace initiative
of Sept. 1.
Ron: Captain, I'm obliged to
say you contributed to my Mid-
dle East peace initiative of Sept.
1, standing up to three tanks that
way. The nation thanks you.
Chuck: Oh yeah? Thank ya,
Mizzer Reziden. even if not sure
I unnersan'.
Ron: (Aside to Weinberger).
He's not sure he understands. I
think that's what he said. Maybe andVhat was the best,
it's not indigestion. Maybe he's
been doing more than just eating
too good.
Cappy: And maybe you need a
sudden emergency call from
Moscow so you can end this thing
and hang up. No sense crawling
to the kid.
Chuck: All I did. Sir. was to let
em know that no Jew was goin'

i [Begin Criticized
in
Lebanon since
But Commission Tells Sharon to Resign
Continued from Page 1-
It said that it had to reject
(gin's suggestion that "such a
anger (as the eventual mas-
el was entirely absent from
i mind." The report noted:
"We are unable to accept the
Iprime Minister's remarks that he
i absolutely unaware of such a
anger" It also declared: "It
should have been foreseen that
danger of a massacre existed
the Phalangist8 were to enter
camps without measures
eing taken to prevent them from
ommitting acts such as these."
Bracketed wtih Begin and the
[head of Mossad was Foreign
Iviinister Yitzhak Shamir, in
West Germany at the time of the
Irelease of the report Tuesday,
who was expected to cut his trip
; day- Both Begin and Shamir
Iwere characterized as being not
{"unaware of such a danger (a
|massacre if the Christian Phalan-
Igists were permitted into the
|refugee camps)."
EYE-OPENER in the report
Iwas the accusation against De-
Ifense Minister Ariel Sharon that
[he "bears personal responsibility.
[In our opinion, it is fitting that
Ithe Minister of Defense draw the
[appropriate personal conclusions
." and resign his portfolio.
According to a Kol Yisrael re-
ort. Sharon has already been of-
fered a new post as minister in
charge of Judea and Samaria.
But according to the radio report,
Shamir refuses to resign and re-
jects the findings of the commis-
| sion of inquiry as invalid.
The three-man commission,
Ianticipating Sharon's reaction,
J noted that Sharon should be fired
\fcy Begin if he refuses to resign.
The commission of inquiry's
[findings and recommendations
I do not carry the force of law.
THE REPORT'S conclusions
|al>out Sharon set up a furious re-
Jsponse in the government here.
(The National Religious Party, an
[important element in Begin's
Likud coalition, joined by the
Liberals, immediately called for
the ouster of Sharon. But the
ultra-Orthodox Agudat Israel
and the less powerful Tehiya fac-
tion (right-wing) appeared to
want the Defense Minister to
htay on. The Cabinet adjourned
J shortly after the publication of
j'.he report without any official re-
action to its recommendations
and promising to comment on the
| report Wednesday.
Maj. Gen. Yehoahua Saguy,
I Israel's chief of Military Intelli-
gence, was also called upon to re-
sign or be dismissed for "indif-
ference and lack of concern." He
| *as further accused of "a shut-
, "ng of eyes and ears" to the im-
I Plications of sending Christian
rrnalangists into the pre-
] oominantly Moslem camps.
Of Lt. Gen. Rafael Eytan, chief
J aff of the Israel Defense
forces, the report noted that it
*as forced to "grave conclusions
*ith regard to the acts and omis-
sions" of Eytan in the massacre.
since Eytan is retiring in April
under anv circumstances, it made

i** as "sneaons" that the

Jwld have expressed reserva
j bout sending them in. The
"Pot added:
Gen. Sharon
"We find that the Chief of
Staff did not consider the danger
of acts of vengeance and blood-
shed being perpetrated against
the population of the refugee
camps in Beirut." It said, "He
(Eytan) did not order the adop-
tion of the appropriate steps to
avoid this danger, and his failure
to do so is tantamount to a
breach of duty that was incum-
bent upon the Chief of Staff."
Maj. Gen. Amos Yaron, com-
mander of the IDF in Beirut at
the time of the massacre, should
in the eyes of the commission of
inquiry be barred from high com-
mand positions for at least three
Gen. Eytan
years. And Maj. Gen. Amir
Drory, commander of the IDF in
Lebanon, was accused of not per-
sisting with the measures he had
taken to stop the slaughter in the
refugee camps when he found out
about it.
In other parts of the report, the
commission insisted that no one
in responsible high position in Is-
rael's government or in the mili-
tary was directly responsible or
wanted or intended harm to any
of the occupants in the refugee
camps. If there were any errors,
they were of omission rather than
of commission.
Foreign Minister Shamir
IN ADDITION, the report
absolutely absolved Maj. Sa'ad
Haddad, commander of the
Christian Phalangists in south-
ern Lebanon, of any personal
complicity in the massacre.
On the other hand, the report
noted that all Israeli leaders
involved should have understood
"that the combatants in Lebanon
belittle the value of human life far
beyond what is necessary and
accepted in wars between
civilized people, and that various
atrocities against the non-
combatant population had been
widespread
1975."
While the report absolved
Haddad, it blamed the killings on
Lebanese militiamen,
presumably members of the
Phalangist group. At the same
time, it observed that "it is the
duty of the occupier to do all
it can to ensure the public's well-
being and security," noting that
at the time of the massacre,
Israeli forces surrounded the
Sabra and Shatila camps.
IN A SPECIAL note on Gen.
Sharon, whose dismissal the
commission recommended, the
report said that Sharon was
responsible for "failing to
prevent or reduce the danger of a
massacre These blunders
constitute the non-fulfillment of
the duty with which the Defense
Minister was charged."
At the same time, it expressed
concern that Sharon's decision to
let the Lebanese into the camps
"seemed so unimportant that the
Defense Minister did not see fit
to inform the Prime Minister and
receive his assent."
Returning to Begin, the report
declared that "For two days after
the Prime Minister heard about
the Phalangist entry, he showed
absolutely no interest in their
actions in the camps." The report
noted that Begin himself had
justified Israel's entry into West
Beirut last September as neces-
sary to prevent communal blood-
shed in the wake of the
assassination of Lebanese Presi-
dent-Elect Bashir Gemayel, then
head of the Phalangist militia.
And the report suggested that
if Begin had shown more concern
about a possible bloodbath, it
might have motivated Sharon
and Eytan to take preventive
action.

UJA Collects More Than $357 Million in 1982
NEW YORK, N.Y., The
United Jewish Appeal collected a
cash total of $357.5 million in
calendar year 1982 to help pro-
vide humanitarian programs and
services to the people of Israel
and Jews around the world, ac-
cording to UJA National Cash
Chairman Bernard Borine.
Borine stated that the 1982
cash collection total represents
an increase of $56.3 million or
18.7 percent over the $301.2
million transmitted to UJA in
1981 by 638 campaigning com-
munities throughout the United
States.

Hillel School Faculty Focus
By NINA SINSLEY
Librarian, Hillel School
"Why don't you feature the
faculty in one of your articles?
Let the community know more
about them." It is true that Hillel
School faculty have been part of
Tampa Bay's Jewish community
over the years and their ties to
the community take on a variety
of forms.
If you had a pre-schooler who
attended classes at the Jewish
Community Center six or more
years ago, chances are Janet
Steuart was the teacher. Many of
Janet's students today at Hillel
School she first met during her
more than two years at the JCC.
Janet teaches Science full-time
and helps students develop
award-winning State Science Fair
projects. Her unique specialty
this semester is a JCC course
she's teaching on Sundays titled
"Experiments You Can Eat."
Another former kindergarten
teacher, Ricki Lewis, has been
one of the guiding forces of
"Shalom Tampa," the "Welcome
Wagon" for Jewish new-comers.
Presently Ricki's students at
Hillel are in Hebrew and Judaic
studies. Some are also enrolled in
the JCC's music program, a spe-
cial interest of Ricki's. During
recent years, her husband, Mark
Lewis, served as president of
Beth Israel Synagogue and on
several agency boards.
In addition to her teaching
duties at Hillel, Rose Tyson
manages to find time to chauffeur
son Sam to the JCC, create ex-
quisite quilts and teach Hebrew
to adults in a Center-sponsored
course.
Reuven Robbins has organized
shabbatons and holiday cele-
brations that many lucky fami-

A new accounting firm, Burke,
Angelo & Kinemond, has com-
bined the expertise of three
certified public accountants.
John W. Burke, a CPA and at
torney, has 10 years public ac-
counting experience. He previ-
ously was associated with Arthur
Andersen & Co. and was director
of taxes for a local accounting
firm. John and his family are
members of Congregation Kol
Ami and the Jewish Community
Center.
The new firm, in the Freedom

New York. Besides being the
founder of the firm, Sidney S.
Green is one of the founders of
Israel Bonds. It seems that in
1950 Green was one of 30 Ameri-
cans who attended a conference
with Israeli Prime Minister Da-
vid Ben-Gurion. That conference
was the beginning of the Israel
Bond program and Sidney S.
Green has been actively associ-
ated with Israel Bonds ever since.

opened The Calligraphy Studio at
2007 N. 15th St.
Garner, a professioal calli-
grapher for several years will
provide individualized
calligraphy for awards, certifi-
cates, memorials, invitations and
gifts.
Calligraphy, dating back to 10
A.D., is the art of beautiful
writing. All work done by The
Calligraphy Studio is done by
hand. "There are many forms of
typesetting that can imitate
calligraphy," Gardner said, "but
nothing takes the place of hand
done work."
Gardner is a graduate of
Georgia State University with a
degree in marketing and a mem-
ber of Congregation Schaarai
Zedek. The Calligraphy Studio
number is 248-5058.

After the Bar Mitzvah of a Hil-
lel student he remarked to me
that it warmed his heart to see
both Jewish and non-Jewish
faculty at Shabbat services. It
seems to Rabbi Berger that the
faculty is not just superb at
pointing out strengths and de-
ficiencies of students, but at im-
plementing programs that cater
to the needs of each child. He
continued, "It seems that each
child is a unique individual."
Talking with fourth grader
Shana Hilk, I learned another
perception of the faculty. She
said, "They relate to what you
like to do."
Robyn Pegler summed it up,
"They're fair, they smile at us
and laugh with us."
So, as a response to that earlier
request I guess that one of the
best parts of being faculty at Hil-
lel School is being "family."
Jewish people through the
human support programs of the
Jewish Agency, the Joint Distri-
bution Committee and other
beneficiary agencies," Borine
said.
"We are proud of the fact that
our dollars are now working to
fund humanitarian programs and
services for Jews in need
throughout the world."
Borine said that, this sum in-
cludes $23.5 million for the Israel
Special Fund which was launched
last July to help provide addi-
tional funding for social welfare,
education and health programs
and services threatened by
reductions or curtailment in the
economic wake of "Operation
Peace for Galilee."
Also included, the UJA Na-
tional Cash Chairman reported, is
$1.9 million to help reduce the
substantial debt incurred by the
Jewish Agency in recent years
when it was forced to borrow at
high interest rates to make up for
shortfalls in cash forwarded from
community campaigns.
$19 million was transmitted to
Project Renewal, the sweeping
economic, social and cultural re-
habilitation program created
three years ago to improve the
quality of life in Israel's older im-
migrant neighborhoods. This
sum represents an increase of
$5.1 million or 36.6 percent
the $13.9 million collected !
earlier.
Borine noted that the 1
million collected in 1982 inch
$309 million from the \%
regular campaign, an increase!
$26.1 million or 9.2 percent i
the $283 million collected
1981. Cash for capital projecu!

In his statement of

Borine, a UJA National
Chairman, projected an "a
cash effort for 1983, with
mented programs and sei
that will respond to
Jewish needs."
The accelerated 1983 cash i
gram aims at total redemptio

Barbie Trial Will Be Long Ordeal
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Klaus
jarbie, one of the moat notorious
Jazi war criminals still alive, was
eturned Sunday night to Lyon,
he French city where he served
Gestapo chief during World
Var II- He will go on trial for his
Die in the deportation of
thousands of French Jews, the
nurder of French resistance
der Jean Moulin and other
primes which earned him the title
butcher of Lyon" 40 years ago.
Barbie, 69, was handed over to
French authorities after his ex-
.ulsion from Bolivia, a country
iihere he found haven shortly af-
the war and obtained citizen-
ship in 1952 under the alias Klaus
Mtmann. Upon his arrival in
France aboard a military plane he
ras flown by helicopter to Lyon
here an investigating magis-
trate formally charged him with
primes against humanity. If
ound guilty, he faces life im-
prisonment.
ALTHOUGH French courts
entenced Barbie to death in ab-
entia in 1946 and 1954, capital
punishment has since then been
Jabolished in France and the death
(sentences have been voided by the
[.[.mile of limitations. Mean-
while, he is being held in Montluc
[Prison in Lyon.
Legal experts say that Barbie's
Itrial will start in a year, at the
[earliest, as hundreds of witnesses
lhave to be heard and tons of
documents have to be studied.
Legal experts also say that his
trial will have to be based on his
anti-Jewish activities since his
responsibility in the arrest, tor-
ture and murder of resistance
fighters in also voided by the
statute of limitations and could
be challenged in court.
The "butcher of Lyon" is ex-
pected to appoint West German
lawyers sepcializing in the de-
fense of former Nazis, as his at-
torneys.
French individuals interviewed
on radio and television networks
generally said they strongly
favor Barbie's arrest and trial.
Moulin's widow said, "What
Barbie deserves is death. I hope
someone will manage to kill
him."
THE ISRAELI Justice Minis-
try said Monday in Jerusalem
that it has not yet received a
formal request from France to
supply evidence or witnesses for
Barbie's trial. Officials said that
once a request is received, the
necessary information could be
prepared in a few days.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir stated: "I am satisfied
that one of the known war
criminals will be brought before a
tribunal in France and justice will
be done and he will be punished
for the crimes he committed dur-
ing the war."
Although Barbie's where-
abouts have been known at least
Israelis Show Strong Opposition To
Arms Sales to Dictatorships
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
I public opinion poll published by
the Jerusalem Post shows strong
bipartisan opposition to Israeli
arms sales to countries governed
b; dictatorships.
The poll shows that 35.2
| percent of the respondents are
rugainst selling arms to "racist
and dictatorial regimes." The
< breakdown by party of persons
holding that view was 36.4
percent pro-Labor and 34 percent
| pro-Likud.
Respondents who favored arms
| jales only to democratic regimes
i amounted to 27.9 percent of
whom 32 percent were pro-Labor
and 26 percent pro-Likud. A total
of 9.4 percent was undecided.
Likud A total of 9.4 percent was
Among them 8.4 percent were
proI,abor and 7.2 percent pro-
Likud.
Asked if Israel should take into
account the kind of regime it sold
arms to. 27.5 percent of the
. respondents said Israel should
PSell to any country, irrespective
of the kind of government it had.
In that category, 32.8 percent
were pro Likud and 23.2 percent
pro-Labor.
Howard B. Greenberg

Questioned specifically about
arms sales to Argentina, 53.8
percent responded positively.
29.1 percent were opposed and
17.1 percent were undecided.
That sampling was not told
before they answered the
question that Argentina is ruled
by a military dictatorship.
Israel, Hungary
Join in Pate
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Paris correspondent of Maoriv
reported that Israel and Hungary
have concluded a cartel agree-
ment for the sale of agricultural
products almost entirely goose
liver to France. The paper said
that Hungary exports to France
some 800 tons of goose pate,
while Israel sells about 250 tons a
year, but obtains a higher price.
Under the new agreement,
both countries will unify their
prices and market their product
under joint agreement. Israel is
said to be one of the worlds
major producers of goose liver.

since 1972 when Nazi hunters
Serge and Beate Klarsfeld identi-
fied Altmann as Barbie from old
photographs, requests for his ex-
tradition to France were rejected
by the Bolivian authorities.
The former Gestapo officer
lived and apparently prospered in
La Paz under the protection of a
succession of rightwing military
governments. But the new
civilian government of Bolivia
ordered his arrest last month on
charges of fraudently obtaining
$10,000 from a State-owned com-
pany.
BARBIE WAS stripped of
citizenship he obtained under a
false name, and, with extradition
requests pending from France
and West Germany, he was
ordered expelled, apparently to
avoid prolonged hearings by the
Bolivian Supreme Court, the out-
come of which was uncertain.
His pending indictment for
crimes against humanity is said
to involve responsibility for the
deaths of at least 11,000 persons
including Jews and members of
the French resistance. He headed
the gestapo in Lyon from 1942-
1944.
One document, found in Ger-
man archives after the war,
shows that he personally organ-
ized the arrest of 41 Jewish chil-
dren, aged 3-13. All were de-
ported to the Auschwitz death
camp. He also rounded up
thousands of local Jewish
refugees and had them sent to
Drancy, the notorious transit
camp on the outskirts of Paris,
from where they were deported to
death camps in East Europe.
BARBIE WILL BE the first
major Nazi war criminal to be
tried in Western Europe, outside
of Germany, in nearly a genera-
tion. But Barbie's trial could re-
open old wounds and stir up a
hornet's nest in France. Barbie
claims that Moulin, the French
wartime resistance chief he is ac-
cused of murdering was alive
when he handed him over to the
Vichy authorities.
Barbie also claimed recently in
La Paz that many prominent
Frenchmen were involved in the
betrayal and arrest of Moulin
whose death caused the complete
reorganization of the top echelons
of the resistance.

Begin Tells Ministers
Turn Down Anti-American Rhetoric
Rodeph Sholom Sisterhood]
Valued Volunteer Js Shakm
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Premier Menachem
Begin ordered his ministers
to tone down the angry
rhetoric between Israel and
the U.S. over an incident
last Wednesday when an
American marine officer
confronted an Israeli tank
squad south of Beirut. But
government sources stres-
sed that this would
"depend on the Americans"
allowing the tension over
the incident to die down.
Summing up an angry Cabinet
debate, Begin overruled several
ministers who had suggested
strong public action by Israel to
emphasize that it was in the right
in the tank incident. Some of
them urged Begin to make an
official statement or send a public
letter to President Reagan.
BUT BEGIN said such steps
would needlessly exacerbate the
tension and would play into the
hands of those in the U.S.
Administration who want to
foment trouble between
Washington and Jerusalem.
According to Begin, it was those
elements who deliberately exag-
gerated the incident for their own
purposes. Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon reportedly supported
Begins "play it cool" approach.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir appeared conciliatory when
he told reporters, before his
departure on a brief visit to West
Germany, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg that he hoped the incident
will not affect the friendly rela-
tions between Israel and the U.S.
"These accidents in Beirut are
very regretable. I think they will
not change the character of the
friendly relations with the United
States." he said, adding that
neither country needed or wanted
such incidents. He was referring
'to the episode last Wednesday
when a marine officer, Capt.
Charles Johnson, halted a column
of three Israeli tanks and,
brandishing a loaded pistol,
warned that they could advance
only over his dead body.
The incident occurred near the
Beirut airport. Israel insists the
tanks were on a routine patrol in
their legitimate area of
operations at the time and that
the Americans later conceded
this.
BEGIN AND other ministers
expressed distaste Monday over
reports in the Israeli media citing
Israeli sources to the effect that
Johnson had been intoxicated
when he confronted the tanks.
But Cabinet sources said the
ministers, regardless of their
differences over how to handle
the incident, were united in their
anger and resentment against the
Administration for allegedly
exaggerating it.
Much of the blame was heaped
on Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger who. it was felt here,
deliberately over-reacted to the
affair in order "to besmirch
Israel."
Officials and military officers
France Agrees to Sell Iraq
Missiles Like Those in Falkland*?
PARIS (JTA) France has agreed to sell Iraq 20
Exocet missiles similar to those used effectively by
Argentina against the British Navy during the Falkland
Islands war and six Super Standard combat planes to
deliver them, according to the usually well informed
French weekly Le Canard Enchaine.
DIPLOMATIC SOURCES confirmed the report saying
it fitted in with France's overall pro-Iraqi and pro-
Egyptian policy. The Iraqi-Iranian war was one of the
subjects which Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
discussed with President Francois Mitterrand when they
met here last Thursday.
Mubarak, Egyptian diplomatic sources said, hopes
Western Europe will "make itself clearly heard" in
Washington and urge President Reagan to act rapidly to
try and secure a settlement in the Middle East. The
sources said Mubarak feels encouraged by his meeting
with Reagan but believes that European pressure would
help speed up American diplomatic action.

assert that when American and
Israeli officers and diplomats
inspected the demarcation line
shortly after the incident, it was
confirmed that the tanks were in
their own territory and that the
marine captain had to leave his
forward post to confront them.
They said that colored barrels
erected since then to define the
demarcation line proved this.
The tank incident has drawn
sardonic comment from Israeli
army officers who say it "ranged
from the ridiculous to the
unhappy to the absurd." They
seem to take offense at the fact
that Johnson has become what
they call derisively America's
new "folk hero" who "single-
handed repulsed three Israeli
tanks by brandishing his pistol."
IN AN IRONIC twist, the
Israeli tank commander involved
in the incident, identified only as
a Lt. Col. Rafi, was slightly
wounded Monday when two
explosive charges detonated near
a patrol he was leading in the
Shuafat area, in the vicinity of
the confrontation with the
marine. A military spokesman
said the attackers fled westward
toward the area patroled by the
multinational force made up of
the marines and French and
Italian contingents.
Meanwhile, Maj. Saad Had-
dad. commander of the Christian
militia in south Lebanon and Is-
rael's principal ally, blasted the
U.S. at a press conference in
Metullah Friday. He claimed the
marines were incapable of halting
Palestinian terrorist attacks on
Israeli troops in Lebanon and
charged that "the marines are
there for political purposes" and
"to protect the PLO."
Haddad, who many Lebanese
officials regard as a renegade,
also charged that President Amin
Gemayel "does not have the
power to force" the Syrians to
leave Lebanon. He scorned the
Lebanese regular army as a
"collection of soldiers even the
best of weapons will not im-
prove."
Elsewhere in south Lebanon,
fierce fighting was reported
between Druze villagers and
Christian militias in and around
Aley on the main Beirut-Damas-
cus road. According to reports
from Beirut, the Druze are helped
by the PLO.

head injuries caused by a rock
thrown through the windshield of
a military vehicle she was riding
on the night of Jan. 29. The
victim. Esther Ohana of Beit
Shaen, was hit when the vehicle
driven by a senior army officer,
was passing through the
Dahanya Village on the Beer-
sheba-Hebron highway. The rock
was thrown from behind the wall
of a nearby school. The army
damped a curfew on the village
and ten suspects were arrested
for questioning.

But No Pre-Conditions
Begin Urges Hussein to Attend Parley
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
__ Premier Menachem Be-
gin has invited King Hus-
sein of Jordan to join in the
Middle East peace process.
He insisted, however, that
the invitation was being
extended within the frame-
work of the 1978 Camp Da-
vid accords from which
there must be no de-
viations, no contradictions
and no additions that
would change its meaning.
Begin addressed the closing
session of the Prime Minister's
1983 Israel Bond Organization
conference here. He said there is
no nation in the world which
yearns for peace more than the
people of Israel. But, he added,
the Jewish people have an in-
alienable right to live in Israel "in
all its parts."
PRESIDENT Yitzhak Navon,
addressing the conference dele-
gates earlier at a meeting in the
Presidential residence, observed
that PLO chief Yasir Arafat tells
the Western press and diplomats
he is willing to live in peace with
Israel but says just the opposite
in his messages to the Arab peo-
ple.
Navon said that in reading the
Arabic press he found that the
PLO leaders adhere faithfully to
their charter which calls for the
elimination of Israel.
On the subject of Israel's peace
treaty with Egypt. Navon said
that while President Hosni
Absentee
Voting
Absentee voting for the Tampa
Municipal Election is now avail-
able in the office of the Supervis-
or of Klections on weekdays from
R:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. for voters who

Election Day, March 1. The Elec-
tions Office is in Room 107 of the
Hillsborough County Court-
house.
Absentee voters who prefer to
have a ballot mailed to them
should call 272-5850 as soon as
possible.
To qualify to vote by absentee
ballot, the voter must have regis-
tered by the deadline of Jan. 29
and be unable to get to his as-
signed polling place without the
help of another person. This elec-
tion is for voters residing within
vihe City of Tampa pniy.
Completed absentee ballots
must be received in the Elections
Office by 7 p.m. election night if
they are to be counted with the
elm ion returns.
Tampa elects its city officials
every four (4) years. The ballot
for this election will contain races
for mayor and for five (5) city
council seats. The incumbents in
the remaining two (2) city council
seats are unopposed for re-
election.
There will also be two (2) refer-
endums on the March 1 ballot.
The first referendum proposes to
reduce from seven (7) to three (3)
the council seats which are
elected citywide and make the re-
maining four (4) seats elected
n>m districts. Only council
v|"em,.)ers elected citywide would
be eligible to serve as chairman
and chairman pro-tern of the city
council. If approved, this change
would become effective in 1987.
The second referendum pro-
"des for exceptions to the cur-
rent competitive bidding require-
ments in specified circumstances
and also corrects a legal citation
incorrectly referenced in the city
charter.
Mubarak supports the peace pro-
cess, the Egyptian press is con-
ducting an anti-Semitic cam-
paign which includes cartoons
that could have come from Julius
Streicher's Nazi press.

ing next April and has urged all
other Jewish organizations to do
the same.
Dr. Israel Kugler, president of
the Jewish labor fraternal order,
cited among other things the
Workmen's Circle's support of
the Polish Solidarity movement,
outlawed by the regime of
Wojciech Jaruzelski. He said the
invitation was extended through
"a Polish government puppet
front the Jewish Cultural Far-
band."
"AS SUPPORTERS of Polish
Solidarity who have witnessed
the repressive measures ex-
hibited by the Jaruzelski regime,
we cannot and will not permit
ourselves to be expoited. Nor do
we wish to see kindred Jewish
organizations equally exploited
for the hypocritical purposes
such participation would mask,"
Kugler said.
He noted that the Jeruzelski
government "and predecessor
Polish Communist governments
have a long history of anti-
Semitic actions which drove out
the remnant of surviving Polish
Jews, purged members from its
own political ranks just because
they were Jews, and revived the
notorious Grunwald movement
to use anti-Semitism against the
free trade union movement
Solidarnocz Solidarity."
Kugler said his organization
would support "all legitimate
commemorations" of the Warsaw
Ghetto uprising "in those coun-
tries where democracy is prac-
ticed." It is supporting the
American Gathering of Holo-
caust Survivors in Washington
Apr. 11-14.

of a generous donation from one of its participants, Betty Oslin. This
is the third time Betty has given a gift to the project. Rene Miller, JCC
business manager, accepted the gift on behalf of Sharon Mock, acting
director. Betty, who has long been associated with the project, feels
she is fMiying back some of which she has received here at the JCC. "In
these hurtl times, it's little enough to do / wish I could do more."

NEH Planning Grant to JEW
NEW YORK, NY. Soviet
Jewish immigrants in six cities
now have a better understanding
of American society as the result
of a pilot project conducted by
JWB and funded by a planning
grant from the National Endow-
ment for the Humanities.
Titled '' Beyond Resettlement:
A Model Program Interpreting
American Society for Soviet Jew-
ish Immigrants," the project in-
volved Soviet immigrants who
have been in the U.S. from two to
four years and JWB-affiliated
Jewish Community Centers in
New York. Los Angeles. Chicago.
Philadelphia, Cleveland and San
Francisco.
The six cities were selected be-
cause they have the largest influx
of Soviet Jewish immigrants in
the U.S. The JCCs were chosen
l>ecause over the past eight years
they have demonstrated an
ability to mobilize their com-
munity's resources to provide re-
settlement and acculturation
programs and services to the new
Americans.
The planning grant was
awarded to JWB by the National
Endowment for the Humanities
to accomplish two things: 1) to
help the immigrants become ac-
culturated to their new American
environment, and 2) to teach
Americans about the Soviets.

TnBrShevat
On Sunday, Jan. 30, Rodeph
Sholom's Religious School cele-
brated Tu Bishevat with a
morning of rotating workshops,
singing, dancing, cooking,
eating, storytelling, and seed
planting. Parsley seeds
planted to be harvested for the
seder table karpas, as well as
marigold seeds, which will bloom
to adom the bima for Spring.
Larry Wasser of the Jewish
National Fund, brought a film,
"From Sand to Land," which, he
explained, showed that JNF
money went for more than trees.
Religious school youth and
students then presented Mr.
Wasser with their collection for
trees to be planted in the Rodeph
Sholom forest near Safed. This
was especially significant as
Rabbi Berger will lead a group of
congregants from Rodeph
Sholom to Israel in April to help
celebrate Israel's 36th, double
chai, year of independence. The
thought of their own congregants
planting trees excited the chil-
dren so much that Mr. Wasser
had to promise to send the reli-
gious school a collection box for
each child in an effort to plant as
many trees as possible before the
April trip-
The festive morning was con-
cluded with Cantor Hauben
leading the parents and children
in "Hatikvah," after whkh all
exited outdoors with little gift
packages of Tu Bishevat fruits
and the entire school planted a
tree donated especially for this
occasion by incoming president,
Lou Morris.

a-ael Charges U.S. Exaggerated Incident
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Lrael has accused the
fnited States of exagger-
Lng an incident in which a
[arine officer brandishing
I loaded weapon prevented
Israeli tank squad from
jvancing toward a marine
neck point on the southern
itskirts of Beirut.
I The State Department said it
ewed "such incidents very seri-
fsly," and Defense Secretary
B9par Weinberger toTd the
ouse Armed Services Commit-
that it was his "continuing
nrrv" that such incidents could
icalate and cause "serious loss
[life"
BUT ISRAEL officials insist
lat the alleged confrontation
[as of minor consequence and
fccurred because the marine
ficer was unfamiliar with the
femarcation line between the
bne patrolled by the marines and
Lat in which the Israel Defense
|orce operates. They expressed
er at what they termed Amer-
an "over reaction.'
According to the Pentagon
sion of events, Marine Capt.
Jharles Johnson approached an
dvancing column of three Israeli
^nks near a marine checkpoint
; the Beirut University's science
culty at Reihan. The lead tank
Jllegedly halted within "a foot"
ff the officer who asked to speak
the squad commander. The
btter. an Israeli Lt. Col. not im-
hediately identified, dismounted
er several minutes and asked
) speak to a superior officer.
When the Israeli tanks indi-
cated they would continue to ad-
Lame, the marine officer leaped
In top of the lead tank, loaded
pmi cocked his 45 pistol (some
version* said, hy tarried rifle)-
biJ warned that the tanks would
advance only "over my dead
Ixidy After several minutes, the
Israeli tank column withdrew.
EINBERGER was quoted
aying that Capt. Johnson, com-
pander of L Company, would re-
live a commendation for
travery
The Israelis deny that a gun-
nt confrontation occurred.
hey said the marine officer ap-
arently was unaware that the
aks were operating legitimately
n the zone which Israeli and
American officials had agreed
nly a day earlier was within the
sraeli sector. They denied as well
hat the tank column was at-
npting to approach or pass
hrough the marine checkpoint.
Israeli officers and marine
fficers, accompanied by the Mil-
" sy in Beirut toured the area of the
incident and redetermined the
lemarcation line. But the Israelis
fnarged that the marines had
neglected to follow procedures
Wned at avoiding confrontations
*uch as have occurred between
Israeli and marine forces in
recent weeks.
THOSE PROCEDURES, in-
Riding a telephone "hot line"
tetween marine headquarters
*nd the Israeli command post,
were agreed to at a meeting
rter this week between Col.
Thomas Stokes, commander of
JJ* 1,200 man marine contingent,
ton. Amir Druri, Commander of
e Israeli forces in Lebanon, and
jj special envoy Morris
Arrangements were also made

wrs on both sides to avoid future
misunderstandings. But the tele-

meeting of officers never took
.. and Col. Stokes refused to~
,n Israelis officers on a tour of
demarcation line, the Israelis
mpla,ned. For that reason, ap-
j*ritly, local commanders such
j-apt Johnson were unfamiliar
^hits precise location.
The line runs several hundred
yards east of an abandoned rail-
road track which parallels a high-
way where Israeli patrols make
regular sweeps in search of am-
bushes from which Palestinian
terrorists have been harassing
Israeli military traffic in recent
weeks causing some casualties.
The marines and Lebanese army
units jointly occupy the Beirut
University campus which consti-
tutes a "bulge" into the Israeli
zone. The Israelis said they
agreed to this as long as Leba-
nese army soldiers are present to
prevent the possible use of the
buildings by the PLO.
THE ISRAELI version of the
events was confirmed by Phila-
delphia Inquirer staff writter Da-
vid Zucchino who claimed in a
dispatch from Beirut that he had
witnessed the incident from
about 400 yards. According to
Zucchino, the Israeli tanks were
circling within their zone and not
approaching the marine outpost.
Capt. Johnson approached the
tank column and conferred
briefly with an Israeli officer after
which the tanks left the area Zuc-
chino reported.
("Israeli soldiers patrolling
near the site of the incident paid
little attention to it, and the
marine commander here, Col.
Thomas Stokes, did not mention
it at a news conference more than
six hours later," Zucchino wrote.)
But in Washington, acting
Secretary of State Kenneth Dam
summoned the Israeli Charge
d'Affaires, Benjamin Netany-
ahu, "to discuss this incident
and the gravity with which we
view it," State Department
deputy spokesman Alan Rom-
berg told the media.
ROMBERG SAID, The re
currence of challenges to the ma-
rines by Israelf Defense Forces Is"
unacceptable. We view such inci-
dents very seriously because they
endanger the safety of the troops
involved and hamper the peace
keeping efforts of the multina-
tional force" which the marines
constitute along with French and
Italian units.
According to Romberg, "Our
information is that U.S. marines
halted three Israeli tanks which
had attempted to cross into terri-
tory within the operational re-
sponsibilities" of the multina-
tional force.
The Israel Embassy denied
that "there was any attempt to
cross the American lines or to
challenge the marines there
was no such attempt."
According to the Embassy
statement, "After completion of
the patrol, a U.S. marine officer
approached the Israeli unit and
claimed that it should not be in
this area. The Israeli command-
ert explained that he was operat-
ing in territory previously agreed
upon and left."
The Israeli officer in charge of
the sector described the incident
as "absurd." I sraeli officials were
reported to have spoken sarcast-
ically of Johnson's action. They
were quoted as describing it pri-
vately as a "John Wayne oper-
etta" or a scene from a "wild west
film." They expressed surprise at
the official publicity given to
what was "only a storm in a tea-
cup."
BUT WEINBERGER, at his
appearance on Capitol Hill, called
the incident "basically damaging
to the President's efforts to
secure peace in the whole area."
He said Capt. Johnson acted with
"total correctness and extreme
courage," adding, "I've asked
that he be commended."
Stokes gave his version in a
press interview several hours
after the press conference at
which he had reportedly failed to
mention the incident. He said
Johnson "went down on the road
by himself to trv to tell these
folks (the Israelis) to turn
around and go home. He stood in
the road as the tanks came up
and the Israeli (lead) tank came
within one foot of him, at pretty
high speed and then slammed on
the brakes."
He said Johnson demanded to
speak to the Israeli commander
who emerged from his tank after
a few minutes and said he had
orders to go to the railroad
tracks. Stokes said Johnson told
the Israelis that he was ap-
proaching a Lebanese army
checkpoint and that the Lebanese
had orders not to let the Israelis
through.
According to Stokes' version,
the Israeli officer said, "I'm
coming through" and Capt.
Johnson said at that point, "No
you're not. The only way you're
going to get there is to come
through me."
Lebanon Said To Be Offering
Much Smaller Than 28-Mile Zone
JERUSALEM- (JTA) -
The Israel, Lebanese and
American negotiating
teams continue to meet to
seek agreement on the
withdrawal of foreign forces
from Lebanon and security
arrangements.
Natanya has been the scene of
subcommittee meetings to
discuss specific agenda items,
but no progress has been
reported. A new stumbling block
arose when the Lebanese
reportedly differed with Israel
over the size of the security zone
to be established north of the
Israeli border. Israel has been
insisting on an area 28 miles deep
which would keep its northern
towns and settlements out of
range of terrorist rockets and
artillery.
Reports confirmed in the media
here said the Lebanese propose
a much smaller zone. The Leba-
nese are also opposed to Israel's
demand that its own troops man
early warning outposts in south
Lebanon after the bulk of its
30,000-man force is withdrawn
from that country.
Meanwhile, Col. Thomas
Stokes, commander of the 1,200-
man marine force in Beirut flatly
denied that Palestinian terrorists
who have been harassing Israeli
troops in recent weeks were
operating from the zone patrolled
by the marines.
"I don't know where they are
coming from, and I don't think
the Israelis do either," Stokes
told a press conference at marine
headquarters at Beirut airport.
"Nobody has given me any in-
formation to make me believe
this is where they're coming
from," he said.
Israeli officers have charged
recently that the marines have
been lax in allowing Palestinian
terrorists to infiltrate their lines
to attack Israeli military traffic
on a highway that runs parallel to
the marine's zone of operations.
Israeli patrols sweeping the area
in search of terrorist ambushes
have had several confrontations
with marines.
Stokes said this was not likely
to recur since a telephone
"hotline" has been set up bet-
ween marine headquarters and
the Israeli army command post.
The "hotline" was agreed to at a
meeting last week between
Stokes. Gen. Amir Drori, com-
mander of Israeli forces in
Lebanon and U.S. special envoy
Morris Draper.

Rabbi Leon Kronish, (left), national campaign chairman of the

cabee was a campaign of welcoming Israeli soldiers to meet
with leaders of Jewish groups and to explain the Jewish State's
military moves in Lebanon. The award is shown being
presented by IDF Chief of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan at the Israel
Bonds Prime Minister's Conference held in Jerusalem last

JNF Appoints Ben-Meir
To Development Post
NEW YORK Dr. Alon Ben-
Meir has been appointed national
director for regional development
of the Jewish National Fund.
Previously, he was JNF's Central
States regional director based in
St. Louis, Mo.
In announcing the appoint-
ment, Dr. Samuel I. Cohen,
executive vice president of the
JNF, noted the dramatic growth
of JNF's operations in recent
years. "There is now an increased
urgency for even greater co-
ordination and supervision of our
regional offices and of our fund-
raising activities in the U.S. for
the JNF's crucial afforestation
and land development programs
in Israel, and I look forward to a
long and fruitful association with
Dr. Ben-Meir." Dr. Cohen said.
In his new position, Dr. Ben-
Meir will be in charge of fund-
raising for the JNF's offices
throughout the United States.
An expert in manpower training
and leadership development, he
will also organize training pro-
grams for lay leadership, as well
as for the JNF professional staff.
In addition to his new position
Dr. Ben-Meir will serve as liaison
and coordinator of the National
Leadership Council, the recently
