PLO Claims 'Credit9
Bombing of Jerusalem Bus Claims 4 dead, 46 Critically Injured
- Four persons were killed
and 46 injured, many
seriously, when a bomb
exploded in a crowded
Jerusalem bus Tuesday
afternoon, virtually
demolishing the vehicle.
The casualty figures were
released at 4 p.m., local
time, about three hours
after the explosion. The
total could go higher.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir vowed
Tuesday night that the perpe-
trators "will not go unpunished."
A statement released by his office
said security forces were
"making every possible effort to

and the state of the economy.
uncover the perpetrators of this
criminal act. They shall not go
Organization claimed credit for
the outrage. Its Cyprus-based
news agency, WAFA, quoted a
Palestinian military spokesman
as saying that a unit of the
"Martyr Chalim" commandos
was responsible for the bus
The PLO claimed it was an
army bus and that 40 Israeli
military personnel were killed.
The bus, a Number 18, which
follows the circuitous route
around the city, was blasted into
the air by the explosion while
waiting at a stop light on Herzl
Boulevard at 12:50 p.m., local
time. Another bus, immediately
behind, was also damaged by the
explosion, and a number of its
passengers sustained injuries.
THE INJURED were rushed
to the nearest hospitals Shaare
Tzedek and the Ein Kerem
facility of Hadassah Hospital.
Many victims were reported
badly burned or profusely bleed-
ing. At least one victim was in
critical condition. Jerusalem
Police Chief Rahamim Comfort
announced that several suspects
had been arrested for questioning
in what was easily the worst
terrorist attack anywhere in
Israel for at least the last two
years. He said a mass search was
underway for the perpetrators.
The bus was enroute to the
Kirya Yovel Section on the
southern outskirts in Jerusalem
and was packed with passengers,
including school children and a
large number of shoppers who
had boarded the bus at the
Mahane Yehuda Marketplace.
The bomb, believed to have
been loaded with nails to cause
maximum injury, exploded in the
center of the bus. The roof was
blown off by the force of the
explosion, all windows were shat-
tered, and parts of the vehicle
were strewn as far as 100 meters
from the site.
"I never saw such a horrible
sight," and eyewitness told
reporters. "I saw body parts tens
of meters away from the bus, a
baby pacifier stained with blood,
torn school books, makeup kits
and a bloodstained chocolate
EXTRACTION of the dead
and injured from the vehicle was
hampered by hundreds of curious
bystanders who converged on the
scene. Many refused to heed
repeated appeals by policy to
allow the work to continue.
Transportation Minister Haim
Corfu went on radio and televi-
sion to urge bus passengers to be
constantly on the alert for any
suspicious-looking packages.
"There is no doubt that a bomb
of that size should have aroused
suspicion on the part of the
passengers," Corfu said. "Public
sensitivity to such objects should
be strengthened," he added.
Herzog Says Returnees Brought
IDF Standards to New Low
President Chaim Herzog
said that he "absolutely
agreed" with former Chief
of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan
who severely criticized the
heroes' welcome which
greeted the return of six Is-
raeli prisoners of war held
by the Palestine Liberation
Organization in exchange
for some 4,600 Palestinian
and Lebanese prisoners
released by Israel.
Eitan, who was Chief of Staff
during the war in Lebanon, told
the Tiberias Rotary Club that the
six POWs "fell into captivity in a
disgraceful way." He did not rule
out court martialing them if the
Israeli Chassidic Festival '83 At Tampa Theatre
For the past five years,
audiences in Tampa have enjoyed
the music, songs and dance of the
Israeli Chassidic Festival
sponsored by the Jewish Com-
munity Center. So many, in fact,
that people were hugging the
walls of the JCC auditorium last
year to see the performance.
This year, things will change.
On this Tuesday night, Dec. 13,
"Israeli Chassidic Festival '83"
will be presented in Tampa
again; however, this time the
performance will be at the Tampa
Theatre. Curtain time is 8 p.m.
A group of 13 top Israeli stars
make their sixth appearance in
Tampa, bringing with them a
festival that is more than a high-
quality concert it is Israel's
most popular and prestigious
musical event, held every year
under the auspices of the Presi-
dent of the State of Israel.
The first Israeli Chassidic
Festival in 1969 was intended to
be a one-time contest for the best

music set to Biblical verses.
However, the overwhelming
response changed the course of
history for this musical event.
Ever since, composers from all
over the world enter their works
in spirited competition. Top
Israeli performers present these
songs to the people of Israel who
select the winners. The festival
attained immortality as its songs
became a part of the daily ser-
vices. Passages of the prayers
which were recited for hundreds
of years are now being sung to
new melodies which originated in
the Chassidic Festival.
"We look forward to this year's
performance with great antici-
pation," said JCC President Leah
Davidson. "Past years have
provided us with a great evening
oi Jewish songs and traditions.
"And we feel that this year at
the Tampa Theatre will be the
start of bigger and better Jewish
programming for the city of
Tickets for Israeli Chassidic

and dessert party with the
army's investigation ot the
circumstances of their capture in
September, 1982, found such
action was called for.
Herzog, talking to reporters
here, said the POWs had
surrendered "shamefully." He
stressed that the Israel Defense
Force had, early on, established
"basic criteria" of soldierly
conduct. "God forbid that we
should fall below those stan-
dards," he warned.
HERZOG, a former general in
the Israeli army and chief of
military intelligence, was an
officer in the British army during
World War II. He became one of
Israel's leading military affairs
commentators and served as its
Ambassador to the United
Nations prior to his election to
the Presidency early this year.
The IDF's standards were set
by Palmach during the War of
Independence in 1948, Herzog
said. "These standards have
brought us safely to where we are
today. We must not acquiesce in
any reduction of them." Later,
Herzog's spokesman. Ami
Gluska, told reporters the Presi-
dent was not recommending
court martials for the six
returned prisoners. That is for
the military to determine, he

Plight Worsens
Blum Describes Agony of Soviet Jewry
(JTA) Israel has charged
that the plight of Soviet
Jews has worsened in the
last year and accused the
Soviet Union of closing its
gates to Jewish emigration
and conducting an anti-
Semitic campaign against
its Jewish citizens.
Addressing the Social,
Humanitarian and Cultural Com-
mittee (The Third Committee),
Ambassador Yehuda Blum of
Israel charged that in the last
year the Soviet authorities "have
shown themselves even more
callous in their attitude toward
the Jews in their midst, more
brazen in their flagrant disregard
of international legal norms, and
more contemptuous of their
international obligations as well
as of the opinion of the civilized
BLUM SAID that while in
1982 the soviet allowed 2.700
Jews to emigrate, in "the current
year, as of 30 September 1982.
fewer than 1,100 have been
granted permission to leave."
He Charged that the halting of
Jewish emigration "has bv no
means meant a relaxation of the
pressures upon Soviet Jew-." He
said that the .Jews in the Soviet
Union are discriminated against
and are denied their religious and
cultural rights, including their
right to study Hebrew and to
have Hebrew textbooks or
publications on Jewish history.
Continuing. Blum said that
Soviet Jews are subject to "the
increasing volume and ferocity oi
the anti-Semitic incitement in the
government-controlled media,
masquerading as anti-Zionism!
which has recently introduced an
ominous new element into the
plight of Soviet Jewry."
THE ISRAELI envoy de-
clared: "In the name of decency
and common sense, we call upon
the Soviet government to put an
end to this ominous campaign of
anti-Semitic incitement. We call
upon the Soviet authorities to
conform their policies and
practices regarding Soviet Jews
to the international obligations of
the Soviet Union as well as to
Soviet law and, in particular, to
end their discrimination against
the Jewish minority."
Turning to another issue, the
plight of the remnant Jewish
communities in Syria and Yemen,
Blum called on the governments
of those countries to allow their
Jewish citizens to emigrate. He
said that Syria "as a rule denies
Syrian Jews the right to
emigrate. Those few who are
granted exit permits, Blum
charged, are forced to deposit
some $5,000 and leave their
families behind in Syria as a
guarantee of their return.
'' We call upon the government
of Syria to fulfill its commit
ments under the Helsinki Accord
by honoring the fundamental
human rights of the Jewish com-
munity there and by permitting
unrestricted emigration for those
who wish to leave," Blum stated.
HE CHARGED that the
human rights of the members of
the tiny Jewish community in
Yemen are "gravely violated."
"They have been forbidden any
postal communications with
relatives and Jewish com-
munities outside Yemen," Blum
said, adding:
"They are not permitted to
leave Yemen, whether tem-
porarily or permanently.
Moreover, the authorities have
denied entry visas to Jews of
other countries who wish to visit
relatives in Yemen." Blum also
said that the Jewish community
in Yemen must be allowed to
receive religious articles from

Shamir Explains New Accord
With U.S. to His Cabinet
JERUSALEM (JTA) The U.S. has undertaken
to conclude the proposed negotiations on a free trade area
with Israel within a few months, Cabinet sources said
Sunday after Premier Yitzhak Shamir briefed the
ministers on his talks in Washington last week.
Shamir dwelt at length on the economic aspects of his
visit. He said Washington's agreement to a $1.4 billion
military aid grant for fiscal year 1985 need not necessarily
be the last word.
IT HAD been understood that if Israel needed more,
more would be available. Israel's original request was for
$1.7 billion. The U.S. also indicated it would favorably
consider upping the military aid total in the years beyond
1985, according to Shamir's briefing.
The Cabinet was told the free trade area, once
operative, could increase Israeli exports to the U.S. by as
much as 30 percent. In addition, there were un-
derstandings reached whereby the U.S. would purchase
goods and services for its armed forces in Israel.
ON THE proposed prepositioning of U.S. military
supplies in Israel, Cabinet sources said that here too the
intention was to negotiate ezpeditiously.
They indicated that iHavorable decisions were taken
regarding medical prepositioning, work might begin on
major medical facilities here within months.

I Am Special, My Name
Is Special, Too
What originally started as a
Religious School classroom pro-
ject became a very special nam-
ing ceremony at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek on Sunday, Nov.
It all began when Annice
Burak, Schaarai Zedek Religious
School's first grade teacher, sent
an information form home with
her students. The form was en-
titled, "I am Special. My name is
Special too!", and included ques-
tions regarding the child's
Hebrew and English name, and
the child's naming ceremony.
Many students completed and
returned their forms, but others
did not have a naming ceremony
for a variety of reasons. What-
ever the reason, the need was
evident. Parents wanted their
children to have a Hebrew name,
and therefore a naming ceremony
was planned at the Religious
School. Plans for the ceremony
grew to encompass students in
many other grades of the Reli-
gious School.
On Nov. 20, Rabbi Frank N.
Sundheim officiated at a naming
ceremony for 24 children in the
sanctuary of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek. All of the
students in prekindergarten
through first grade attended. The
children's Parents and Teachers
hosted a reception afterward.

Escalating War
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir must
now face the tough task ahead of con-
vincing the everyday Israeli that he did not
make any secret commitments with
President Reagan in Washington last week
that means a deeply-involved U.S.-Israeli
military arrangement, including possible
joint action against Syria.
If nothing else were needed, the terrorist
bombing in Jerusalem Tuesday, for which
the Palestine Liberation Organization has
already taken "credit," should be reminder
enough that (1) it is dangerous business for
the United States to be escalating its
military role in Lebanon; and (2) it is
equally dangerous business for Israel to
enter into an active alliance with the U.S. in
that role.
The action of the United Nations in-
volving, once again, saving the "face" of
Yasir Arafat and giving him the op-
portunity, a second time now, to flash V-
for-victory signs even as he leaves the
rubble of defeat behind him should tell
Israel, if Israel needs being told, that the
warring Arab factions in the Middle East
are their own worst enemy.
They need no other enemies, American or
Israeli, to help put their house in order.
What can come from such actions will be
little more than new anguish in
Washington or Jerusalem or possibly in
both cities.
Americans have been the first to suffer
the consequences of not knowing precisely
what the Reagan Administration has in
mind in the Middle East. It would be a
tragedy of incalculable proportion if Israel
were to follow suit.
Chaim Her tog. President of Israel, and Dr. Norman Lamm,
president of Yeshiva University in New York City, go over
notes for a speech that Herzog delivered to an audience of more
than 1,200 students, facwlty members, and administrators at
the University during Herzog's recent visit. In that speech.
President Herzog urged members of the audience to consider
settling in Israel.
THE NEW strategic arrange-
ment between the United States
and Israel is a mixed marriage.
Israel is the reluctant bride still
protesting that she needs no one
to do battle in her cause an is-
sue of particular pertinence since
the U.S. bombing last weekend of
Syrian installations during which
two of our planes were downed.
As for the American groom, he
has yet to discover the depth of
the enmity toward the marriage
within his own family. It is after
all one thing to spout high-
sounding phrases about ethnic
accord and common spiritual
roots. It is quite another to take a
close look at guess who's coming
to dinner.
NEITHER IS this internecine
wariness a one-way street. If in
America we have Caspar Wein-
berger types all over the place
who suffer from varying degrees
of Judeophobia, it appears that
the Israelis experience a similar
malaise about the United States
that is equal in intensity and
merely opposite in direction.
Spanning the metanoia of each
nation, the American Rabbi
Arthur Hertzberg, a former pres-
ident of the American Jewish
Congress, is now warning Israel,
apparently too late, that it must
not become involved with the
United States on the basis of
mutual interests stemming from
the exercise of power.
Argues Herzberg, and I think
it is to some extent an excellent
point that he makes: "The people
in Israel fail to understand that
America loves Israel not because
it is led by tough leaders but be-
cause of the values it represents."
OF JUST which values in Is-
rael America is enamored, I am
not quite as sure as I am sure of
which values Rabbi Hertzberg
has in mind. At this point in our
perilous history, it nevertheless
seems to me that the confusion
deals with perceptions that are
worlds apart.
Rabbi Hertzberg, I suspect,
means Israel of 35 years ago
Israel as a hard-working pioneer,
Israel as idealistic, Israel as agri-
cultural and therefore pastoral
(read for this "biblical"), Israel
as inspired by the divine afflatus:
in short, many of the things we
once were as a nation, or at least
believe we were.
But I also suspect that the
Reagan Administration had none
of these admirable qualities in
mind when it reached its strateg-
ic accord with Prime Minister
Shamir. Surely, the President
was thinking instead of Israel's
military prowess tested over and
over again on the field of battle,
of Israel's unforeseen evolution
as an astonishing high-tech so-
ciety, of Israel as a quality
weapons purveyor of equally
astonishing proportion for its
IT IS these qualities, perhaps,
that led to the retaliatory U.S.
strike against the Syrians last
weekend, despite the denials to
the contrary from both sides of
the new accord, and especially
from Israel who, as the typical
sabra bride, continues to insist
that she needs no one to fight her
But that's the trouble when an
American speaks for Israel, as
Rabbi Hertzberg did. It gives rise
to precisely these kinds of confu-
sions that cannot be easily dis-
missed even when they are ir-
relevant. So what sort of bride is
Mr. Reagan in fact getting?
The answer is: not nearly as
reliable in the virtues of which he
dreams in her as the certain
demeanors of Prime Minister
Shamir and Defense Minister
Moshe Arens suggested during
their talks with the President in
from imprisonment are a case in

To begin with, their surrender
to PLO units was ignominious.
Not only did they not put up a

rael, charging that the POWs had

Eitan is now demanding courts-

IN SHORT, they are in fact
not heroes but a projection in the
public mind of a growing body of
dissenting opinion in Israel that
rejected the war in Lebanon from
the outset, that criticizes national
Israeli policy in the territories
and, for all one knows, that wants
an accommodation with Araby at
any price.
One Israeli military observer,
Eitan Haber, a military
correspondent for Yediot
Achronot, has already com-
mented bitterly that his coun-
try's capacity for pain, its
"threshold of suffering has
dangerously declined."
These are unhappy differences
of opinion that others in the West
are sure to couple with Israel's
more widely-held love for the
material sweets of hi-fi's, new
cars, fancy cameras and the like
so sharply criticized by the new
finance minister, Yigal Cohen
Orgad, just a few weeks ago.
bride, President Reagan may
perhaps take solace from the fact
that, after all,.not all Israelis are
dissenters or even refuseniks of
service in Lebanon. And doesn't
the United States have its own
share of Eastern Establishment
liberals who oppose nuclear war,
missile deployment and the
Maughter of seals and manatees?
rThis, Mr. Reagan surely con-
(eludes, is the price you pay for
Still, it is undeniable that the
spirit that fired David Ben-
Gurion and the other pioneer kib-
butzniks still has not, as yet,
brought the nation into the
Arava. What followed Ben-
Gurion into Sde Boker was a
unversity honoring his name, not
a massive migration from the
fleshpots of Israel's cities into the
desert to do battle in the cause of
planting blooms in the sand.
So that Israel at least appears
to be a mite less determined than
it was in the beginning to fulfill
the Zionist dream in terms espe-
cially foreign to them: as a
pastoral presence of Eden
ONE SENSES in the new
Reagan bride a touch of bitter
experience with the realities of
Israel's political and military
existence as it emerges today -
and to which the United States
ironically contributed in its reac-
tion to Israel's war in Lebanon -
a loss of the new, ol the virginal
that those early pioneers must
surely have felt, and that Israelis
now feel less keenly perhaps be-
cause they are after all the sons
and daughters of those European
Zionist ideologues in the era of
Theodor Herzl. For them, too,
cosmopolites to their very souls,
the pastoral vision is a foreign
Perhaps this is why President
Herzog, recalling the Israel Def-
ense Force's standards back in
the days of the 1948 War for
Independence, nostalgically
declared that "These standards
have brought us safely to where
we are today." The implication is
clear: they must not change. But
seemingly, they are.
Will all this Israeli soul-search-
ing make the Reagan bride a
soldier less assiduous than those
warriors whose exploits from
Suez to Entebbe were party to
the legerdemain that is her prin-
cipal dowry? Many Americans
may join the Judeo-phobes in
deploring the marriage by
arguing that this is precisely so.
BUT FOR us. as Americans
and as Jews, it ought to be clear
that Rabbi Hertzberg's warning
is especially apt, and not because
Americans love Israel's high
ideals, for that is both irrelevant
and dangerous reasoning. It is
apt because Israel must fight
only Israel's wars, not America's.
If Israel is genuinely not an
American surrogate, then there
can be no blame olaced upon Is-
rael for American judgments,
decisions and actions.
With two American jets al-
ready downed by Syrian fire, who
can know what Pentagon finger-
pointing slouches toward Jeru-
salem even now?

(JTA) A controversy
which developed when a
university press stopped
publication of a book on the
Middle East because, ac-
cording to an official of an
American-Arab group, it
was "racist," has been
settled by Assemblyman
Alan Hevesi, president of
the National Association of
Jewish legislators.
Hevesi said John Zogby, field
representative of the American-
Arab Anti-Discrimination Com-
mittee, who made the racism
charge, refused a request to sub-
mit evidence of his charge.
The State of New York Univer-
sity (SUNY) Press discontinued
publication of "The United
States and the Middle East," by
Philip Groisser, because of what
SUNY called "disappointing
sales, Hevesi said.
ZOGBY THEN publicly
claimed publication was halted
because of his committee's pres-
sure on the SUNY press to stop
printing the high school textbook
which he said the Committee
considered "a racist attempt to
introduce propaganda into the
Hevesi, a Democrat who rep-
resents Forest Hills, N.Y., said
he held separate meetings with
SUNY Press representatives and
with Dr. Seymour Lachman, con-
sulting editor for the book and
chairman of the National Com-
mittee for Middle East Studies.
After those meetings, Hevesi
said he had been able to get from
the SUNY Press "a commitment
to republish an updated
manuscript, directed toward the
college level student, subject to
the review and possible recom-
mendations for revisions by the
(SUNY) editorial board." Hevesi
said that arrangement had been
accepted by Lachman.
HEVESI SAID he had become
involved initially in the matter
because of his concern that the
SUNY Press "was making a pub-
lishing decision based on outside
pressures from a special interest
group which, if true, represents a
direct threat to the principle of
academic freedom."
He noted that SUNY officials
had asserted that the decision to
halt publication of the book "was
based solely on economic consid-
erations and not on any charges
of bias or racism as claimed" by
the American-Arab committee.
Hevesi said that if the SUNY
assertion was correct, then
SUNY was "extraordinarily in-
sensitive in announcing its deci-
sion to discontinue publication
within a few weeks of Mr.
Zogby's initial attacks on the
book, and the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee's
continued claim of a great victory
are false."
HEVESI SAID that, on Nov.
10, he invited Zogby "to submit a
detailed memorandum to the
authors of the new manuscript so
that they could consider the
charges of bias and racism" made
by the American-Arab com-
Hevesi reported that in a letter
to him dated Nov. 18, Zogby
"declined to do so and stated 'I
was told months ago by SUNY
Press that they had no plans to
publish any more textbooks. I
find that policy much more ac-
ceptable than any attempt under
pressure to publish a racist one'."
The Assemblyman commented
"Obviously, Mr. Zogby is more
interested in propaganda vic-
tories than in having input into
the revision of the original text."

taken, including the joint poli-
tical military group which
Shamir said would have its first
meeting in January. The meeting
will be in Washington and then
will alternate with Jerusalem on a
semi-annual basis.
Reagan said t\e committee
would discuss si :h things as
combined planning, joint exer-
cises and the stockpiling of U.S.
military equipment in Israel. A
senior Administration official
said later that this list was "illus-
trative but not exclusive."
Reagan stressed that the
"priority attention" by the com-
mittee would be given "to the
threat to our mutual security by
increased Soviet involvement in
the Middle East." He also spoke
of the "common concern with the
Soviet presence and arms buildup
in Syria."
A SENIOR Administration of-
ficial who briefed reporters later
stressed that, there were no plans
for a joint Israel-U.S. attack on
Syria and that the joint com-
mittee could not be seen as a
threat to any Arab country.
Reagan also said the U.S. will
provide more economic and milit-
ary aid to Israel. Shamir said he
hoped the U.S. would take into
account "the great sacrifices
made by Israel" in the peace pro-
cess by abandoning its oil wells in
Sinai and by having to build new
military installations to replace
the ones left in the Sinai.
The senior officials said that no
agreement has been made on the
aid figure, although the U.S. does
want to increase the percentage
of the aid given as a grant rather
than as a loan. This was still be-
ing discussed by Israel and the
U.S. at the State Department
this afternoon.
Another agreement announced
by Reagan was to allow the Is-
raelis to use the $350 million
Congress voted in military aid
funds for developing its Lavie jet
fighter plane in the U.S. and $250
million for development in Israel.
Israel will also be allowed to
spend $200 million of foreign
military aid funds in Israel for its
Sinai redeployment projects. It is
usually required that foreign
military aid funds be spent in the
U.S. Reagan said that Israel will
also be allowed to bid on projects
to supply the U.S. military
REAGAN SAID that Israel
and the U.S. will also discuss set-
ting up a free trade zone. The Ad-
ministration official explained
that this would be similar to the
one Israel will have with the
European Economic Community
in 1989 and will allow Israeli
products to be sold in the U.S.
and U.S. products to be sold in
Israel duty free.
One decision not announced by
Reagan but revealed by the
senior official was that the U.S.
will resume delivery of cluster
bomb artillery shells to Israel
once an agreement is reached
that contains both a definition
and guarantee against violation
of their use. The deliveries were
suspended in July, 1982, a month
after Israel invaded Lebanon.
On Lebanon, Reagan said,
"We affinned our commonly held
goals of sovereign, independent
Lebanon free of all foreign forces
and of security for Israel's north-
ern borders." He said that "we
agree that every effort must be
made to expedite" the May 17 Is-
raeli-Lebanese agreement.

Sober Second Thoughts
6 POWs Suddenly Seem 'Shameful'
Friday. December 9
Some of Israel's leading
writers, editors and mili-
tary commentators are
having sober second
thoughts over the euphoria
that swept the country last
week when six prisoners of
war captured by the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion in Lebanon 14 months
ago, returned home in
exchange for some 4,500
Palestinians and Lebanese
held prisoner by Israel in
Lebanon and in Israel.
These observers of the national
scene, writing in major dailies,
have expressed serious concern
on two counts: first, the frenzied
heroes' welcome given the re-
turned POWs was not warranted
by the circumstances and could
have long-range deleterious ef-
fects on the morale and fighting
spirit of the Israel Defense Force:
second. Israel seems to have
abandoned its long-standing
policy of never surrendering to
terrorist "blackmail."
The prisoner exchange, given
the vast disparity in numbers
returned by each side, was clearly
a moral and political victory for
the PLO. Israel released men the
PLO wanted released, among
them many hard-core terrorists,
and the long-range meaning of
this acquiescence is yet to be
"The practical damage of the
repatriation extravaganza is that
we ourselves encourage the other
side, the PLO or whoever, to raise
the ante, the price to be paid for
the release of prisoners" in the
future, according to veteran jour-
nalist Shalom Cohen writing in
The Jerusalem Post.
MILITARY correspondent
Eitan Haber. writing in Yediot
Achronot Sunday, measured the
extent of the erosion of Israel's
no-surrender policy. The govern-
ment's rationale for the POW
exchange was that the lives of the
six soldiers were in immediate
danger due to the warfare in
northern Lebanon between PLO
dissidents challenging Yasir
Arafat's leadership and Arafat
loyalists who were holding the
Israelis prisoner.
Haber pointed out that lives
have been sacrificed time and
again in the past to uphold the
principle of no-surrender to
blackmail. He recalled the mas-
sacre of children in Maalot when
Israeli troops charged the school-
house where they were being held
hostage by PLO gunmen rather
than accede to terrorist demands:
the similar incident when terror-
ists seized the Savoy Hotel in Tel
Aviv: and the 1972 massacre of
the Israeli Olympics team in
In 1976. Israel carried out the
long distance raid to rescue
hostages held by terrorists at
Entebbe airport in Uganda,
despite the appreciable risk to the
lives of the hostages and
members of the rescue team, one
of the leaders of which. Yoni Net-
anyahu, was killed.
without irony, that the policy
turnabout began under the Likud
government which has consist-
ently taken a harder line toward
terrorism and the Palestinians
than its predecessor Labor
regimes. The "threshold of suf-
fering" of the nation has "dan-
gerous h declined'' over recent
years. "The government and the
army must carefully think about
what they have done." Haber
Other commentators stressed
the anomaly of the public
reaction to the POW exchange.
They pointed out that the
capture of the six soldiers was
hardly a glorious or edifying
episode. The full details of how
they were surrounded by a PLO
unit on the front line in Lebanon
in September. 1982 have never
been released. But one fact is
clear they were not captured
during a fight. No shots were
Retired Brig. Gen. Yaacov
Hasdai summed up the feelings
of many observers in a newspaper
column titled "Joy But Not
Honor." He urged the nation to
make a careful distinction be-
tween the return of heroes and
that of ordinary soldiers who had
the misfortune of falling into
enemy hands.
HAARETZ columnist Natan
Dunevitz noted bitterly that the
country paid far less attention to
tales of glory and heroism in
battle for which the highest
orders of bravery were awarded,
often posthumously. The army
publishes accounts, but there is
no national frenzy of excitement
as there was when these six
young men came home, he wrote.
"Champagne was poured on
their heads as though they were
some winning basketball team,"
Dunevitz continued. He recalled
the far more modest celebrations
that greeted the return of Yom
Kippur War POWs. He disclosed
that the late former Chief of
Staff. Gen. Haim Laskov, had
bitterly criticized even those cele-
brations as damaging to the very
fibre of the army's courage.
Laskov said at the time, ac-
cording to Dunevitz: "Soldiers
who lost their limbs because they
fought back harder than these
prisoners were not accorded such
a welcome Can you imagine
what warping effect this can L.
on youngsters who might have to
stand and fight sometime in the
INEVITABLY, critics seek
scapegoats, and the Israeli
media, particularly radio and tel-
evision, have become the target
of charges that it whipped up the
popular adulation bestowed on
the six returned POWs. Shalom

Post, headlined "Sorry Spec-

According to Cohen, "the ef-
fects on the national psyche, the
exaggeration, synthetic self-
gratification and the make-
believe seen in the celebration did
incalculable harm. The double-
think of turning an unavoidable
surrender to blackmail into a
victory to be celebrated leads to
dishonest obscurantism. A
habitual refusal to face hard facts
is not an asset for this
beleaguered island. We descend
to a level of a TV serial like
Dallas', that of canned myth."
"Unfortunately." wrote Cohen,
"an accusing finger must be
pointed at the media which un-
leashed their professional effici-
ency as impresarios of pathos .
the original culprit was the
Broadcasting Authority ..."
Haaretz faulted the media, es-
pecially Kol Israel Radio, for
setting the tone. The State-
owned radio decided Nov.
24 to cancel its regular
programs for day-long coverage
of the POW return. Yosef Lapid,
director general of the Broad-
casting Authority, rejected the
criticism. Radio and television
merely covered the events, they
did not create or magnify them,
he said.
