said, "the big question ia, who ia

The electiona may be held six

- Agreement to Bar Soviets
by the news media." Admitting
to some ethnic problems, he feels
they will soon disappear. Just
five months ago the first Oriental
Jew was elected chief of staff. He
is Baghdad-born, Moahe Levi.
Shlomo Gazit lives in Beers heba
at the main campus of Ben
Gurion University, which houses
about 6,000 students. There ia a
satellite campus at Sde Boker,
where Ben Gurion lived his last
20 years and ia buried.
Two research institutes are
located at Sde Boker. The Jacob
Blaustein Desert Institute, which
ia primary at the university,
deals with desert problems in the
scientific and technical field.
About 120 scientists are dis-
covering how to enhance life and
living in the desert.
The second institute is the Ben
Gurion Archives and Research
Institute where his personal
library and papers are collected.
The study continues about the
man, Ben Gurion, about Zionism,
and about modern Jewiah
history. Several dozen scholars
use this center aa the base for
their research.
Former Vice President
Walter Mondale urged that
the United States forge an
"effective strategic agree-
ment with Israel to restrain
the Soviets and their prox-
ies" in Lebanon.
Addressing a meeting of the
Conference of Presidents of Ma-
jor American Jewish Organiza-
tions here, Mondale, a candidate
for the Democratic Presidential
nomination in 1964, blasted the
Reagan Administration's Middle
East stance and charged that the
administration has no policy in
Lebanon. He claimed the Admin-
istration harbored ''illusions"in
the region.
He listed these as the belief
that Saudi Arabia is a moderat-
ing force; that King Hussein of
Jordan will enter negotiations
with Israel; and that Israel's
withdrawal from Lebanon would
be followed by Syria's withdraw-
al from that country.
"WE HAVE troops in Leba-
non but no policy there," Mon-
dale declared, stating what he
believed American goals there
should be. The U.S. should not
accept Syrian domination of that
country, he said. It should not
tolerate wanton attacks on the
Marines. It should work for a
compromise between the various
factions to broaden the govern-
ment of President Amin Gemayel
and then forge an "effective stra-
tegic agreement with Israel to re-
strain the Soviets and their
Mondale charged that in the
paat year the Reagan Adminis-
tration has pressured Israel alone
on the issue of Lebanon and
"took the heat off Syria." The
result, he said, is that Syriau
troops are still in Lebanon and
PLO Chief Yasir Arafat is back
there as well.

Top JNF Executive Predicts Israel's
Agricultural Dominance By Year 2000
A vision of Israel in the year
2000 as the granary of the Middle
East, thanks to the revolutionary
use of desert conditions and ex-
tensive land reclamation for agri-
culture, was projected by Dr.
Samuel I. Cohen, executive vice
president of the Jewish National
Fund of America.
In a report issued to more than
100 JNF national and regional
executives attending an annual
fundraising conference. Dr.
Cohen stated that by 2000, Israel
will be well on its way to
becoming an "economically inde-
pendent oasis of peace."
Citing the extensive land-
reclamation achievements of the
Jewish National Fund, which will
be 99 years old in the year 2000,
Dr. Cohen based himself on
current statistics and trends. He
predicted that by 2000 over 235
million trees throughout Israel
will have been planted, adding to
the cover of green and network of
forests now dotting the country.
JNF's afforestation program,
which is unique in the world, has
until now been responsible for the
planting of 160 million trees in
the once-desolate land. Planting
continues at the rate of almost
five million trees per year.
Dr. Cohen said JNF land-
reclamation programs, which
prepare desert and rocky terrain
for agricultural and settlement
use, as well as conserve wood-
lands and wilderness areas, have
as of this year recorded 160,000
dunams (40,000 acres) reclaimed.
He projected that an additional
400,000 dunams (100,000 acres)
will be reclaimed in the next 17
Stating that JNF is now in-
volved in Israel in more projects
and programs than at any other
time in its eight-decade history,
Dr. Cohen said that in addition to
afforestation and land-
reclamation, JNF continues to
clear the way for access roads
linking settlements in Galilee, the
Negev and Arava.
"A key aspect of JNF work,"
Dr. Cohen said, "is settlement
site preparation. This includes
leveling and grading soil and
creating the infrastructure for
construction. As of 1983, JNF
has prepared the land for almost
1,000 communities and popula-
tion centers throughout Israel.
The accelerated pace in the next
17 years will achieve an addition-
al 1,600 sites prepared for new
In recent years, Dr. Cohen
noted, JNF has, in cooperation
with other government agencies,
been responsible for developing
new recreation and camping
Mrs. Alan Brandes
Elizabeth Peacock and Alan
Brandes were married Sept. 4 at
the Tampa Airport Marriott
Hotel. Judge James Lenfesty
officiated. A luncheon followed
the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of
Rev. and Mrs. Houston R.
Northcutt and the late Ernest
Anderson Peacock, Jr. of Tipton-
ville, Tn. and is the grand-
daughter of Mrs. Ernest Ander-
son Peacock. She attended
Emory at Oxford College and
graduated from Memphis State
-3 University with a BS in educa-
o tion. This past summer she
; completed her MA Ed at the
! University of South Florida.
The groom is the son of the late
Mr. and Mrs. Mac Brandes of
New York and the grandson of
Adele Rosenkranz, Tampa. He is
the nephew of Mr. and Mrs.
Stanley W. Rosenkranz, Tampa.
He attended Jacksonville
University and is an executive of
the Southland Corporation.
Matron of honor was Diane
Buchanan-Andrew, and the best
man was the grooms uncle,
Stanley W. Rosenkranz. Dr. Alan
Kaplan, Miami, brother-in-law of
the groom, served as usher.
The bridal couple honey-
mooned at Sanibel Island and
will make their home in Tampa.
"Perhaps no area," Dr. Cohen
stated, "holds greater promise
for Israel's future development
and growth than the vast Negev
There," he continued. "JNF is
involved in agricultural and en-
vironmental research projects
that utilize desert characteristics,
such as abundant sunlight and
geo-thermal water and economic
irrigation methods to improve
agricultural yield and the quality
of life in this region of severe
climactic conditions."
The JNF, Dr. Cohen said, is
working, with scientists in
following up advancements made
in solar energy, preparing ponds
for growing sea food, perfecting
hot houses and using saline water
for plants and crops exported
"JNF has created the basis for
a Negev that is becoming the
winter vegetable basket of Euro-
pe," Dr. Cohen declared. "JNF's
involvement in all these promis-
ing advances should help Israel
become the granary of the Mid-
east and a viable, economically
independent oasis of peace by the
year 2000."

appear before the Presidents

highly favorable to Israel. He
said he believed the U.S. should
move its Embassy from Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem because Jerusalem
is Israel's "undivided capital."
HE SAID he did not believe
Jewish settlements on the West
Bank are illegal, asserting that
the fate of the settlements will be
determined only when negotia-
tions are resumed within the
Camp David framework.
Mondale also expressed oppo-
sition to the sale of sophisticated
weapons by the U.S. to Arab
countries because the introduc-
tion of such weapons will only ac-
celerate the arms race in the Mid-
dle East. If the Arabs are sold
sophisticated weapons, the UJ
has to provide Israel with ami

On Friday we celebrate
the special holiday of
Simchat Torah. What is so
special about it? It is the
only holiday which sur-
passes every limit of joy
and delight, a day of extra-
ordinary simcha for all men
alike. Simchat Torah is
outstanding in its unique
feature of dancing and
parading with the Torah
scrolls by one and all.
What comes to mind at those
unique moments is the famous
saying of Saadya Gaon (9th
Century): "Our people is a people
only by virtue of the Torah."
Indeed, what makes us all one
people? What is the common
denominator of Ashkenazic and
Sephardic Jewry? What ties the
Jew of Morocco with the Jew of
Western Europe.
THE LANGUAGE of the two
segments is different, the
mentality is different, the life-
style is different. Yet we are all
one united people. By virtue of
what? By virtue of the Torah that
has its applicability to every Jew
all over the world, regardless of
his particular locality.
It is only this sameness that
makes us all one united people.
No wonder that the conclusion of
the annual cycle of the Torah-
reading in the synagogue cons-
titutes the most happy occasion
for abundant delight by every
member of the Jewish people.
It must, however, be added
that Simchat Torah is not only a
day of great joy in the plain sense
of the term. For it dresents also a
Dr. Jehuda Melber
great challenge, a clarion call
summoning every Jew to a
stronger attachment to the
THE GREAT Chasidic Rabbi
of Kotzk (19th Century) said once
to his followers on Simchat
Torah: "You dance so enthusias-
tically with the Torah, indicating
your great happiness about the
Torah. But that is not enough;
the question has to be asked: Is
the Torah equally happy with
you? Is your demonstration of
delight only a one-way road, or is
it a two-way road? Is it a mutual
happiness for both parties?"
Indeed, this question has to be
asked in all its sharpness and
poignancy on Simchat Torah of
this year. Is the Torah really
happy with us and our situation?
Or is there enough reason for the
Torah to be unhappy about us?
Do we abide by the Torah-
teaching to give her gladness
over our conduct, or do we
deviate from so many of her com-
mandments to make her gloomy
over our negligence?
That is the great challenge
which confronts us on this special
day of Simchat Torah In short,
the slogan must be called out: Be
happy with the Torah, but let the
Torah also be happy with you.
IT IS interesting to note that
the Torah ends with the Hebrew
letter / (in the word Yisrae/).
Conversely, when we roll the
Torah scroll back and start at
once the Biblical reading all over
again, the first Hebrew letter is 6
(in the word Bereishit). Taking
together these two letters l-b we
arrive at the wonderful combina-
tion of the Hebrew word LeB
which means Heart.
This comes to teach us a
tremendous lesson: that the
cardinal principle in Judaism is
to stimulate and develop our
heart to triple love: Love thy
God, love thy Torah, Love thy
people wholeheartedly.
Nothing substantial can be ac-
complished in our realm without
love of the heart, without com-
plete devotion and dedication to
the sublimest degree of sanctifi-
On this day of Simchat Torah
Friday, we are duty-bound to re-
member our brethren in Soviet
Russia, who under the most ad-
vene conditions gather together
in the only synagogue of Moscow
particularly on Simchat Torah in
amazingly large numbers in order
to demonstrate their loyalty to
the Torah and to the Jewish
people, to show the world that
the inner Jewish flame can never
be extinguished, because am
yisam yisratl chai the Jewish
people is an everlansting entity.
Let us learn from them to
emulate their devotion in our free
country, to practice our religion
with pride and dignity. Let us all
gather together at all houses of
worship on Simchat Torah to
intensify our allegiance to the
Torah and to our History.

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Friday, 8eptembar 30,19^
Let's All Pitch in To Save Our Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is uppermost in
our minds these days for two reasons. One
is the status of disrepair into which Our
Lady of Freedom has fallen over the years.
A South Floridian, Nicholas Morley, has
been named by President Reagan to lead a
campaign throughout our state to help
raise the funds necessary to restore the
Statue of Liberty to help preserve her as
the great symbol of our nation's freedom to
oppressed peoples everywhere and to
Americans as well, who live and enjoy the
benefits of freedom in their daily lives.
A second reason for our concern is that.
for nigh onto a century, the Statue has been
the welcoming site for many immigrants
throughout the world who came to our
nation's shores. From almost the earliest
days of American history, the Statue of
Liberty has cast its shadow across Ellis
Island in the Hudson River, where today a
museum celebrates their voyages here and
the magic moment of their entry into the
excitement of becoming an American.
It was the Statue they first saw. where,
on her foot, was emblazoned a poem in-
scribed in 1903, The New Colossus,"
calling to the tired and hungry, yearning to
be free, to come to her open arms.
That poem, composed in 1883, was the
work of the American Jewish poetess,
Emma Lazarus, to help raise funds for the
Bartholdi Pedestal Fund the building
fund for the Statue's then-new pedestal
November, 1983 will be the centennial
anniversary of Emma Lazarus' com-
In recalling this centennial event, we
must not forget the Lady herself. Through
her poem. Emma Lazarus helped raise
funds for the new pedestal. Today, we must
help raise funds to "Save Our Statue." Let
us all pitch in behind Nicholas Morley and
put Florida on the map of this SOS cam-
Reagan Must Speak Out
Anatoly Sharansky, the Soviet Jewish
Prisoner of Conscience who has become the
symbol of the struggle of Soviet Jewry,
marked the midpoint of his 13-year sen-
tence on Sept. 15. He continues to languish
inside the notorious Chistipol Prison,
subjected to inhuman conditions, deprived
of fundamental rights such as visitation
privileges and correspondence with family
members, all on the trumped-up charges of
treason against the Soviet Union.
The silence at this point from the Soviet
Union is expected. To let Sharansky out of
prison, or even out of the Soviet Union,
would mark a grave peril to their closed
society, exposing the harsh cruelties to
which it has subjected not only Sharansky,
but many other Jews during the past years.
President Reagan has stated repeatedly
that the Administration has raised the
issue of Soviet human rights when senior
Administration officials have conferred
with Soviet officials.
Publicly, the Administration appears to
be acting on empty words. Since it has
come to office, the Reagan
Administration's policy of quiet diplomacy
in the field of human rights has left many
Americans feeling that little has been
The current level of Soviet Jewish
emigration is at an all-time low, and any
indication of an increase in emigration from
the Soviet Union, in light of the Korean
airline downing, appears limited. But the
Administration must continue to play a
significant role to help the Sharanskys, and
it could start with public revelations of its
specific efforts for Soviet Jewry.

The Recent March on Washington
Friday. September 30.1963
Volume 5
23 TISHRI 5744
Number 32
Have we witnessed
progress or just change?,
one may reasonably inquire
in sifting through the dif-
ferences of the March for
Jobs and Freedom in 1963
and the March for Jobs,
Peace, and Freedom in
Criticism there was in abund-
ance for the effort by the New
Coalition of Conscience to make
more of Martin Luther King's
historic dream of 20 years ago by
means of staging a commemora-
tive, new March on Washington.
On that electrifying march in
1963, the focus was sharp, the
goals vital but limited, and the
spirit of unity notable Above all,
there was a modern Moses to
infuse the assembly with elo-
quence, magic, courage, love, and
irrefutable logic.
THIS TIME around, the
agenda was diffuse and multi-
farious. Not just the expansion of
equal opportunities for jobs and
dear access to places of public
accommodation were the goals,
as in 1963, but the promotion of
the causes of environmentalists
and gays, and advocacy of
women's rights and nuclear
freeze were rolled into one huge
In 1963, the statesmanship and
genius of such giants as A. Philip
Randolph. Roy Wilkins, Whitney
Young, Bayard Rustin, and Dr.
King himself energized the
march. This time, much of the
organizing burden feU on the cap
able shoulders of Correta King

been delineated, let us try to (kill ^a""1-
with the question raised earlier:
has there been change since 1963
or real progress? And let us add
that, if we are able to record true
advancement, what is the outlook
for the still unrealized sectors of
Dr. King's dream?
Progress? The 1963 march
gave great impetus to civil rights
gains: 1964 saw passage of laws
barring discrimination in jobs
and in places of public accom-
modation; the Voting Rights Act
followed in 1965; Fair Housing
Legislation was placed on the
books in 1968. Reluctantly, some
sectors of industry and some
labor unions made concessions.
Many of the walls of segregation
fell in the field of education.
Progress: Dick Gregory put it
succinctly when he said in Wash-
ington: "Twenty years ago, we
came here and asked other folks
to take care of business; today,
we can take care of business on
our own."
But again, it was in the 1960s
that setbacks were registered.
The nation was torn by the tor-
ment in Vietnam. Assassinations
stained the white pages of our
history books: President Ken-
nedy in 1963; Bobby Kennedy in
1964; and Dr. King himself in
1968. Riots and other forms of
violence ripped through the King-
spun fabric of non-violence.
IN MORE recent years, new
factors fuel the fires of anger and
doubt and discontent. Millions
who champion the prime cause of
ending the arms race threatening
planetary destruction are
branded as soft on Communism
and insulted by a President who
refers sarcastically to "the so-
called peace movement" and ac-
cuses nudear freeze proponents
of indulging in theatrics.
Change without progress?
When we turn to employment
figures, we find some nine to ten
million Americans jobless even
when we count those in military
service as employed. Finally, but
slowly, the public, and even the
White House, begin to realize
that there is such a blight as
hunger in America. Hunger and
poverty. When the 1963 March
on Washington took place, 50
percent of this nation's black
families were under the poverty
line, while only 13 percent of 1
white families were. Today, black
families on the poverty lists
number 35 percent while the
figure for white families is just
about where it was 20 years ago.
Civil rights? Yes, huge gains.
But hunger, joblessness,
poverty, despair plague millions.
This is a sad record of disabilities
for the world's wealthiest nation,
preoccupied with trying to teli far
less prosperous countries how to
manage their affairs.

The post of Assistant

(Eastern and South Asian
Affairs is crucial as far as
Itj.S. policy towards Israel
land the Arab world is con-
cerned. The person who

BUT WITH Joseph Sisco's

Islot in the late 1960's at the start
of the Nixon Administration, a
|new tradition developed to find
oore "balanced" specialists to
that role. The "Arabists"
vere avoided as Israel and its po-
litically active friends pressed
hard to find more "friendly
Thus following Sisco, Alfred
Uherton became Assistant Sec-
retary. He was another official
vith extensive experience in
baling with Israel. He was fol-
lowed by Harold Saundera, who
dso could not speak Arabic and
vho, at one point in his career
vhile serving on the National Se-
curity Council, at the start of the

But with the appointment of
54-year-old Richard Murphy to

l&aU: Department once again has
reverted to the tradition of
having a real Arabist in charge of

|And that has naturally aroused
pome concern.

Murphy, the current Ambassa-
dor to Saudi Arabia, had never
been to Israel.
Because of Murphy's back-
ground he speaks Arabic Flu-
ently, was the first U.S. Ambas-
sador to Syria after the two coun-
tries resumed diplomatic ties in
1974 and has spent much of his
career in the Arab world Israe-
li officials and American Jewish
political activists quickly ex-
pressed some concern that he
might not be very sensitive to Is-
raeli positions.
But Shultz actively sought to
ease those concerns. He said he
had come to know and deeply
admire Murphy both before be-
coming Secretary of State and
since. In a clear reference to Is-
raeli officials and pro-Israel sup-
porters in the United States,
Shultz said: "People who don't
know him and get to know him
will see as I have the superb
qualities that he brings to his
SENIOR White House politi-
cal aides, especially sensitive to
Israeli concerns as the U.S.
enters into a new presidential
election season, have actively
embarked on what they call a
"damage control" campaign to
ease Israeli concerns. For one
thing, they have raised the
.example of Shultz himself as
becoming a pleasant surprise to
Israel, given his feared Bechtel
Israel, of course, was deeply
worried that Shultz's big busi-
ness experience with Bechtel
would negatively affect his atti-
tude toward Israel. But Shultz
has managed to overcome that
obstacle and to develop good,
strong ties with several Israeli
policymakers, especially with
Defense Minister Moshe Arens.
The White House and the State
Department are now telling Is-
raeli officials and American
Jewish leaders that Murphy, too,
will be a pleasant surprise. "Just
give thim a chance," one Admin-
istration official said.
In the process of trying to ease
these, concerns, they have re-
called that Murphy, while in
Syria, played a very active,
behind-the-scenes role in improv-
ng the plight of Syrian Jewry.
The Administration is not alone
in spreading that story. Others
have confirmed it, including
Democrat Congressman Steven
Solan of New York, who is
Jewish and one of Israel's
strongest supporters on the
House Foreign Affairs Commit-
HE RECALLED that Murphy
played a crucial role in winning
the exit permits for a dozen
Syrian Jewish girls to come to
the United States in the mid-
1970s to get married because no
eligible Jewish men were left in
Other U.S. officials said
Murphy also had invited Syrian
Jews to the U.S. Embassy in
Damascus, and had raised their
concerns directly with high-
ranking Syrian officials. In the
process, Solarz and these other
American Jewish leaders who got
to know him personally (there
were not very many others)
emerged with a high degree of
respect for him.
State Department officials
have only the highest regard for
Murphy. One official caUed him
"bright, able and balanced.
Another said: "He's going to
surprise a lot of people in Israel.
Murphy started his new as-
signment in early September
even before winning "
Senate confirmation. No serious
opposition to his appointment
occurred on the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, although
he was questioned "enousV
about sensitive aspects in U.S.
policy. Before being confirmed,
Murphy headed the bureau as
Assistant Secretary-designate.
Who exactly is Richard
Murphy? He was born in Boston
on July 29, 1929. He received a
BA from Harvard in 1951 and
another degree from Cambridge
in England two years later. He
joined the State Department in
1955 after serving two years in
the U.S. Army.
HIS FIRST foreign assign-
ment as a diplomat was in Salis-
bury, Rhodesia. His experience
with the Arab world started to
develop after that. Between 1958-
60, he studied Arabic and region-
al Arab affairs intensively, first
at the Johns Hopkins University
School of Advanced Internation-
al Studies in Washington (the
same graduate school where Am-
bassador to Israel Samuel Lewis
received his MA) and later at the
U.S. Government's Arabic
language Training Institutte,
then in Beirut, Murphy, over the
years, has also learned French
Between 1960-63, he served in
Aleppo, Syria, as an economic of-
ficer. From 1966-68, he was in
Amman, Jordan, as s political of-
ficer. In 1968, he was awarded the
State Department's superior
honor award. In 1979, he was
promoted to the rank of career
His diplomatic career really
started to take off in the early
1970's, Saudi Arabia waa actual-
ity his fourth ambassadorial as-
signment, having served as Am-
bassador for Mauritania from
197174; to Syria from 1974-78;
and to the Philippines from 1978-
HIS SWITCH from the Philip-
pines to Saudi Arabia in 1981 was
unexpected. It followed the firing
of the then-U.S. Ambassador to
Saudi Arabia Robert Neumann,
an outspoken political appointee
who was hostile toward Israel.
The Reagan Administration, em-
barrassed by Neumann's remarks
about Israel and then-Secretary
of State Alexander Haig during
the height of the Saudi AW ACS
debate, urgently needed to find a
non-controversial, respected pro-
fessional for the Saudi slot: their
choice was Murphy.
In between his foreign assign-
ments, Murphy also played im-
portant roles in Washington on
Middle East issues. He was
country director for Arabian
Peninsula affairs between 1970-
71 and assistant executive direc-
tor for personnel in the Near
Eastern Affairs bureau from
1968-70. Thus, he is no stranger
to the ways of bureaucratic
Washington and its famous bare-
knuckles infighting. That exoeri-
I ence should come in handy in the
1 months ahead as he takes on his
new assignment.
U.S. Middle East policy is di-
rected from the top meaning
Reagan, Shultz and special envoy
Robert McFarlane. But the gov-
ernmental bureaucracy, everyone
recognizes, is still very impor-
tant. Murphy, therefore, may not
be well-known in Israel right
now, but you better believe he
will be soon enough.
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D., Mass.) will receive an honorary
Doctorate at the annual dinner of the American Associates,
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. He meets with co-
chairmen, Bobbie A brams and Aron Chile wich, to discuss
plans for the Oct 5 event at the Pierre an New Yorh.

HAIFA (JTA) An ar-

lintly by Haifa University and
ihe University of Marburg in
Vest Germany has unearthed the
mains of a Canaanite settle-
tnt dating from approximately
1100-2900 BCE at Tel Acco, near
icre north of Haifa bay.

ity's archaeological department,

have existed in the Soviet armed
forces (and Luttwak recognizes
that they did and do exist), they
are now under control. Luttwak
believes that in the last ten years
the Soviets have effected enor-
mous improvements both in their
military hardware and in their
battle planning.
According to Luttwak, the
Soviets not only have impressive
military equipment of immense
destructive power, they also have
armaments for which no
equivalent as yet exists in the
trench-diggers and ribbon-
bridges; the latter were put to ef-
fective work in the Egyptian
crossing of the Suez Canal in
1973 during the Yom Kippur
War. Luttwak says that while the
Russians were at one time behind
the Americans in helicopters, the
Soviets are now on a par with this
brand of weaponry.
On the issue of the ramifica-
tions of the various Arab-Israeli
wars, Luttwak does not share the
same conclusions as Cockburn
does. Luttwak denies that Soviet
equipment was found wanting in
the confrontation with Israeli
"They tell us more about Is-
raeli skills than about the quality
of Soviet equipment." Western
armies, says Luttwak, would not
have found it so easy to develop
the projectiles and strategy
which destroyed so many
Russian tanks.
IN HIS analysis of Soviet
military production, Luttwak
suggests that the West not be
fooled by allegations about
Russian inefficiency. The Ameri-
cans might have a slight lead in
ordnance, says Luttwak, but that
is more than offset by the faster
Soviet production cycles.
Luttwak is concerned that the
experience of Soviet armies in
Hungary and Czechoslovakia not
be used as a paradigm of future
Soviet strategy. He agrees with
Cockburn that the Russians per-
formed very poorly in both
theaters and that had either the
Hungarians or the Czechs fought
back, the Soviets would have lost
many men.
The example of Afghanistan,
according to Luttwak, shows that
the Russians have improved
tremendously since their actions
in 1966 and 1968 in Hungary and
Czechoslovakia. In fact, the inva-
sion of Afghanistan demon-
strated a Soviet capacity for
boldness in planning and execu-
tion that were uncharacteristic of
traditional Russian partterns of
military thinking. This means
that Russian military men have
opted for a new kind of flexibility
in their grand strategies.
portant insights derive from his
perception that the Soviet
Union's expansionist future is a
function of its volatile political
and ethnic make-up. Using the
example of ancient Rome,
Luttwak paints a scenario which
sees the Russians eventually
gobbling up those countries ad-
jacent to it in order to protect its
own vital life lines.
This problem is compounded
by the fact that within 20 years,
if demographic trends continue,
the Russians will be a minority in
their own country. The Asian
populations will have become the
dominant group in Soviet so-
ciety. This change in the ethnic
strands of Soviet society will
contribute to the disequilibrium
of the country.
It is interesting to note that
neither Cockburn or Luttwak
consider as decisive factors the
intelligence information on
Soviet weaponry supplied to the
United States by Israelis.
It is, of course, impossible to
test the validity of either the
Cockburn or the Luttwak thesis.
That would require testing para-
meters too horrific to conceive
namely, global war between the
United States and the Soviet
Union. Hopefully, the debate will
remain on the academic level.
Shultz Blames Syria
For War in Lebanon
(JTA) The Reagan
Administration fired off its
sharpest criticism to date of
Syria's role in the current
Lebanese crisis which
Secretory of State George
Shultz charged was block-
ing efforts for a national
reconciliation in that coun-
Shultz, appearing before the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee and later before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
accused Syria of failure to honor
its commitment to pull its troops
out of Lebanon, of permitting
armed Palestinian groups to
enter the regions recently
evacuated by the Israeli army
and thereby of responsibility for
the continued presence of Israeli
troops on Lebanese soil.
SYRIA, the Secretary of State
declared, is using its influence in
Lebanon to obstruct national
reconciliation and "indeed .
has instigated political op-
position within Lebanon and
armed several factions engaged
in military actions against the
legitimate government.
Shultz appeared before the
Congressional foreign policy
panels to support a resolution
that would allow U.S. Marines to
remain in Lebanon for another 18
months. This is a compromise be-

tween the Administration which
wants a free hand in Lebanon
with no time limit and many
members of Congress who have
insisted that the President in-
voke the 1973 War Powers Act
which would give Congress
authority to order the Marines
out of Lebanon in 60-90 days.
The Secretary defined the U.S.
role in Lebanon as helping to
create "a kind of equilibrium"
that would encourage a ceasefire
leading to political accom-
modation and the ultimate with-
drawal of all foreign forces from
Lebanon. He warned that to pull
out the Marines now would
jeopardize those objectives.
French Foreign Minister Claude
Cheysson for saying several days
ago that France, a participant in
the multinational force in the
Beirut area, dissociated itself
from the U.S. decision to allow
the Marines to call for air and
naval support if they were en-
dangered by gunfire from anti-
government forces.
"The French Foreign Minister
made what I would consider a
very flamboyant statement,"
Shultz said. He contended that
Cheysson seemed "to position
himself between what he
described as the U.S.-Israeli
forces and the Sovist-Syrian
forces. I don't think it was a
particularly helpful statement,
very frankly."

Robert McGuire that linked the
shooting to three other prior
shooting incidents last June of
which Yeshiva University stu-
dents were the apparent targets.
In the earlier shootings, which
took place in and around the
campus of the Yeshiva Univer-
sity, shots were fired on June 7 at
the front building on the univer-
sity's main campus; on June 9 at
the Jewish Memorial Hospital;
and on June 22 at a luncheonette'
frequented by university stu-
dents. Several students were
injured in the June 22 attack.
The recent shooting occurred on
the Cross-Bronx Expressway
heading east toward the Bronx
Whitestone Bridge to Queens
where the five students who were
in the car live. According to a po-
lice official, a lone gunman armed
with an automatic or semi-
automatic rifle using "high
velocity" bullets, trailed the stu-
dents from the campus where
they had been participating in
try-outs for the high school
hockey learn.
THE GUNMAN, police said,
followed the students and then
pulled ahead of their car and
stopped on the Castle Hill exit
ramp, un estimated 3'/i miles
from the school's campus. He
waited for the car carrying the
students and fired three shots,
one of which hit the lead car,
killing its occupant, 37-year-old
Lucille Rivera of Woodhaven,
Queens, then fired at the stu-
dents' car, hitting one of them,
17-year-old Donald Spilky of Far
Rockaway, Queens, in the knee.
The third bullet hit a retaining
wall, police said.
Deputy Police Commissioner
of Public Information Alice
McGillion confirmed the
sequence of events and said that
it was feasible that the car trailed
the students from the Manhattan
campus and then pulled onto the

McGuire said.
conference that ballistics tests
have determined that the bul-
lets used in the shooting were
fired from the same rifle used in
two earlier incidents. There were
no spent bullets from the June 7
shooting at the main building of
the university that could be used
to make a positive determination,
but police feel it was from the
same weapon.
Questioned on whether the at-
tacks were anti-Semitic, McGuire
said, "We can speculate that the
shootings were anti-Semitic, that
they were done by people who
had problems with Yeshiva stu-
dents, by gangs in the area, or by
a disgruntled employe."
The theory of a disgruntled
employe was central to the in-
vestigation initiated following
the first shooting at the campus.
But according to a source at the
Yeshiva University, the theory
that the incidents were related to
an employe fired three weeks
prior to the June 7 incident for
stealing refrigerators, has been
dropped after the individual was
given a polygraph test and in-
vestigated extensively.
THE SOURCE said the police
are working on the "premise"
that the attack is anti-Semitic,
but that the attack is not the
work of an organized group or
gang because no one has called to
claim responsibility for the at-
tacks, the source said. McGillion
said, "The police do not consider
this attack the act of a rational

rences. More than a dozen uni-
formed police officers have been
assigned to cover the four-block
campus while there are 30 detect-
ives investigating full time in the

initiated its own security ar-
rangements by allocating
$250,000 to hire Wells Fargo se-
curity guards and increasing
campus security, which doubled
the number of security guards at
the university. But the university
is reluctant to provide specific
numbers on how many security
guards it employs.
There have been no reports of
parents pulling their children out
of Yeshiva University divisions
because of the rash of shootings.
"No parent has called and said he
is not sending his kid here be-
cause he will get shot," the uni-
versity source said. "No one has
done this."
There has also been an out-
pouring of support from the His-
panic community and the Jewish
community. The American Jew-
ish Committee said it has joined
with a variety of other racial, reli-
gious and ethnic leaders, to es-
tablish a fund for information
leading to the apprehension and
conviction of the perpetrators.
The AJC fund totals $5,000 at
latest reports.
