Division Plan Gala Luncheon
Jewish Community Center
Membership Vice President
Do you know what has been
happening at the Jewish Com-
munity Center? Have you heard
about the excitement at the north
end of town? If you can't answer
yes to both of these questions you
are missing a great opportunity.
To meet the needs of the Jewish
population, we are building a
north site on Congregation Kol
Ami's property in CarroUwood.
This new facility will allow us to
expand our services to the com-
munity. Now the Jewish popula-
tion in both north and south Tam-
pa will have a convenient place to
meet and socialize.
In its continued growth the
Jewish Community Center is bet-
ter than ever. Services have been
expanded. We now offer pro-
grams for infants, pre-schoolers,
elementary age children, tweens,
teens, adults, and senior adults at
both ends of town.
One new service we are really
excited about is the cooperative
effort between the Jewish Com-
munity Center and Workout
Great programs, convenient
locations, and you are the ingre-
dients for a strong Jewish com-
munity. Please, if you have not
been to the Jewish Community
Center recently, drop in for a
visit. Now there truly is
something for everyone. With
your support the Center will con-
tinue to expand its services and
meet the needs of the Tampa
Jewish community.

West Point Jewish Chapel
Receives Defense Dept. Award
To Sponsor Interagency Conference
- The West Point Jewish
Chapel has received a
significant honor, the
United States Department
of Defense's "1986 Award
for Design Excellence."
The Chapel's architect, Max
Abramowitz, internationally ac-
claimed for such buildings as the
United Nations and Lincoln
Center, accepted the award from
William Howard Taft IV, the
Assistant Secretary of Defense.
Also accepting the award was
Rabbi Marc Abramowitz, rabbi cf
the Chapel, the first Jewish
military chaplain ever assigned to
West Point, and Stanley Fafinski,
chief, engineering division of the
New York District, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
A panel of architects from the
American Institute of Architects,
engineers from the American
Consulting Engineers Council and
landscape architects from the
American Society of Landscape
Architects selected the $7.5
million Chapel for this highly
distinguished honor.
The Chapel is faced with rough-
hewn granite, providing power-
ful, monumental presence, while
also in keeping with the tradi-
tional military Gothic architecture
of West Point.
The building also provides a
clear religious presence. The
Tablets, made of bronze and etch-
ed with the symbols of the Twelve
Tribes, adorn the facade of the
towering sanctuary. With more
than three million visitors to West
Point annually, the Jewish Chapel
is becoming one of the nation's
highest attended Jewish sites.
The 15,000-square-foot Chapel
was designed to serve a multiple
of functions. Foremost, the
250-seat sanctuary provides a
place of worship for the Jewish
cadets, officers and other
members of the West Point
The Chapel also contains a
gallery-museum which is presen-
ting an ongoing series of exhibi-
tions employing both art and ar-
tifacts that portray Jewish par-
ticipation and contributions to
The construction of the Chapel
was financed by private contribu-
tions from thousands of in-
dividuals of all faiths throughout
the nation.

pa confronts.
Doug Cohn, President of the
Tampa Jewish Federation, com-
mented tnat "Franci and Joyce
have tremendous skill and exper-
tise in training and organizing
enlightening workshops." Cohn
added, "The selection of Dr.
Reisman by the committee il-

Hassan, Hussein and the Palestinians
Two dramatic events recently
took place in the Middle East
peace process: the Peres-Hassan
summit, and a change in the policy
of Jordan's King Hussein towards
the Palestine Liberation
Organization and the Israeli-
administered territories. The im-
pact of the Hassan-Peres meeting
was largely symbolic; it may or
may not catalyze a new Arab-
Israel dialogue. King Hussein, on
the other hand, took a number of
concrete measures that produced
immediate change.
By meeting openly, Morocco's
King Hassan and Israeli Prime
Minister Peres demonstrated, as
Anwar Sadat first did in 1977,
that the real road to Middle East
peace is through open dialogue.
The meeting also symbolized the
growing tendency towards Arab
recognition of Israel as a
legitimate political entity to be
dealt with through the normal
diplomatic process and not
through political and military
But the substance of the
meeting, such as it was, tended to
emphasize the distance between
Arab and Israeli positions concer-
ning the Palestine question. While
Saudi Arabia's positive reaction
was encouraging, King Hussein's
display of fence-sitting was
disheartening and Syria's
response severing relations
with Morocco and, along with
PLO factions, threatening Hassan
was alarming.
Since May, King Hussein has
been implementing a complex new
"carrot and stick" policy in his
dealings with the Palestinians.
The "stick" was used on the
Arafat-led mainline PLO. The Jor-
danian king closed all 25 Fatah of-
fices in Jordan in early July. He
also banned all pro-PLO
newspaper editors on the West
Bank from visiting Jordan. The
"carrot" is being offered by Hus-
sein in the form of economic and
other benefits to the West Bank
and Gaza population. On July 16
the king announced a far-reaching
new plan to pour $150 million per
annum into the territories in the
form of investments. He also of-
fered to supply Palestinians from
the Gaza District with Jordanian
passports. And he let it be known
that he "forgave" West Bank
leaders who had cooperated with

Terrorist Bases
Hit Again
For the second time in 24
hours, Israeli Air Force jets
hit terrorist bases in south
Lebanon. The sites attacked
were near the town of
Ba'albek in the Bekaa
Valley. An attack Sunday
was carried out south of
Sidon. Monday's attack was
the seventh since the begin-
ning of the year.
The Israel Defense Force
spokesman reported that all
planes in Monday's attack return-
ed safely and the pilots said they
had scored direct hits on the
bases. The targets were described
by the IDF as the headquarters of
Fatah terrorists loyal to PLO
chief Yasir Arafat and of
breakaway rebels backed by Syria
and led by Saed Muss.
policy intiative but one that
Israel should remain cautious and
passive about. They pointed out
that Hussein himself was pro-
ceeding icrementally: he seeks not
negotiations with Israel, but
rather an evolution in the political
mood in the territories, as a possi-
ble prelude to a genuine political
initiative some time later.
Precisely such a step-by-step
plan dovetails with current Israeli
and American efforts to en-
courage foreign investment in
"quality of life" projects, and a
general economic liberalization,
on the West Bank. It could also be
an expression of Hussein's fears
that, unless he does something,
Likud-led settlement activity on
the West Bank will alter the
demographic picture there and
create new Palestinian refugees
to be resettled in Jordan.
Still, the inter-Arab cards are
stacked against the Jordanian
king. Hussein has not dared open-
ly to renounce the 1974 Rabat
Arab Summit decision that
declared the PLO the represen-
tative of Palestinian Arabs. In-
deed, King Hassan, who is Arab
Summit and Islamic Conference
chairman, pointed to the need for
Israel to negotiate with the PLO
(nor Jordan) as one of two major
demands he made of Prime
Minister Peres.
As for persuading the Palesti-
nian Arab population itself, Hus-
sein has a long way to go. Virtual-
ly all the professional associa-
tions, trade unions, press and
university staff and students in
the West Bank are pro-Arafat and
pro-PLO. It could take years for
Hussein to make up for his own
extended deference to the PLO's
leadership role on the West Bank.
Syria could also present pro-
blems. Undoubtedly, the timing of
Hussein's initiative was dictated
in part by a Jordanian-Syrian con-
fluence of anti-PLO interests.
Syria has pursued Arafat
relentlessly since 1983; it backs its
own hybrid PLO dissidents; and in
early July it sent 500 troops into
Beirut to keep Arafat's cohorts
from reestablishing themselves
there and thus, indirectly, eroding
Syria's own influence in Lebanon.
But Syria and Jordan are using
Arafat as a whipping boy for
diametrically opposite reasons.
Were Syria to perceive genuine
Jordanian progress towards a
U.S.-backed condominium with
Israel on the West Bank, it would
probably turn upon Hussein
Syria's violent reaction to the
Hassan-Peres meeting was above
all a warning to Hussein lest he
dare go the same way of open

dialogue. By late July, Hussein
was again pursuing an attempt to
arrange rapprochement between
Syria and Iraq in order to bolster
the underpinnings of his shaky
alliance with Syria.
Hussein admits he has no money
for his ambitious West Bank aid-
and-influence project. The United
States is hard put, given
Washington's current budget-
cutting mood, to supply even 10
percent of Hussein's needs. Saudi
Arabia is a likely backer, but the
drop in oil income has also hurt
Riyadh's coffers. The Saudis
might easily insist on an American
quid pro quo in terms of new
weaponry, in return for their ac-
quiescence in aiding Hussein.
Egypt's attitude towards the
Hussein initiative was not entirely
clear in late July. President
Mubarak has consistently backed
a PLO role in the peace process,
and in a policy speech on July 20
he continued to do so. He also
welcomed the Hassan-Peres
meeting, and may hope to exploit
Hussein's initiative merely to
pressure the PLO towards
greater conciliation.
Lastly, the reaction of the
Arafat-led mainline PLO itself
was not clear. Certainly Hussein
has set the PLO reeling; it is at its
lowest ebb in terms of power and
influence since the expulsion from
Beirut in August 1982. Arafat can
be expected to step up his efforts
to retrench the PLO in Lebanon
but here both Syria and Israel will
oppose him.
He will undoubtedly want to
demonstrate a PLO presence on
the West Bank, but his removal
from Jordan will only make this
harder. However, he could take
heart from Hassan's endorsement
of the PLO's centrality to the
peace process, even as he joined
the extremists who condemned
the Moroccan king.
This raises the possibility that
Arafat will be tempted to opt for a
new wave of terror on the interna-
tional scene. His more extreme
colleagues in the PLO Executive
Committee will push in this direc-
tion. This could be directed
against Morocco, Jordan and
Syria as much as Israel, the U.S.
and Europe, although a Fatah
rapprochement with an increas-
ingly belligerent Syria cannot now
be ruled out.
Meanwhile, the Syrian-PLO
reaction to Peres' dramatic sum-
mit meeting with King Hassan
virtually guarantees that, at best,
King Hussein will maintain his
cautious, incremental pose,
however much he as Hassan
hinted in a speech to the Moroccan
people after the summit envies
an Arab king who dares meet
openly with Shimon Peres.

South Africa: The Moral Dilemma
London Chronicle Syndicate
Late last year, concerned
South African Jews from all
walks of life gathered in a organizations.

launch Jews for Social
Justice (JSJ). Now, with a
manifesto opposing racist
legislation, police brutality
and use of military in the
townships, JSJ is planning
debates with a range of
cultural and political
groups, Jewish and
It is not tied to any political
mast, but has already had a
message of support from the
United Democratic Front (UDF),
an umbrella organization
representing some 650 South
African trades union, community
and other groups.
At a time when Johannesburg's
Jews, like those elsewhere in
South Africa, are having to decide
whether to stay put, get stuck in
or get out, Jews for Social Justice
represents a small breakthrough.
It is a clarion call to conscience
that says Jews, as a body, must
stand up and be counted in the
"struggle for a just and
democratic South Africa."
AS ONE member saw it: "We
want to teach the Jewish com-
munity about what is going on in
the townships, and we want to
restore the respect of blacks lost
by the community's involvement
with the state and Israel's links
with South Africa."
Many younger Jews are seeing
exodus as the only way out of in-
stability. While figures probably
do not vastly outweigh those for
the whites in general, they have
been trickling out to Israel (where
there are said to be 15,000),
Canada, Australia and the U.S.
since the Sharpeville crisis of 1960
and the 1976 Soweto uprising.
But while back-packing talk is
common, the community is unlike-
ly to follow its Zimbabwean
counterpart, which dropped from
8,000 souls to 1,400 in just five
years, unless things get a lot
Most Johannesburg Jews are
doing nicely. In the affluent

THE CITY'S Jewish population
of 80,000, out of a South African
total of around 115,000, is
undeniably visible. Jews are pro-
minent in commerce and industry,
medicine and the law. The so-
called Kugels and Bagels
Jewish Yuppies are a con-
spicuous fixture on the social
Predominantly of Lithuanian,
Orthodox origins and often fierce-
ly Zionist, the Jews are culturally
homogeneous and impressively
organized with a network of
synagogues, Jewish day schools
and care agencies for the poor.
The South African Zionist Federa-
tion and Board of Deputies play a
central, unifying role, covering
the entire spectrum of educa-
tional, cultural and welfare
But such strengths contrast
against widespread political
apathy and confusion. A growing
voice says that it is both morally
unacceptable and politically short-
sighted to continue "looking the
other way."
If the present is anything to go
by, the future will see increasing
friction between an establishment
trying to walk an increasingly
slippery tightrope and a disen-
chanted minority for whom the
Jewish community, even Judaism
itself, holds no answers.
COUNTLESS individuals have
hit the headlines: businessman
Tony Bloom, chairman of the
Premier conglomerate, who was
part of a delegation to visit the
banned African National Con-
gress (ANC) in Lusaka last year;
lawyer Arthur Chaskalson, who
has been leading the defense in
the Delmas treason trial.
But mindful of white, right-wing
anti-Semitism and black anti-
Zionism, and never encouraged to
mix with other groups, the
establishment has tied its fate,
economically at least, to that of
the whites.
There is certainly concern about
the direction of any post-
apartheid government, yet
dialogue with black leaders is
limited. One notable exception
concerns Zulu Chief Gatsha
Buthelezi, an ardent fan of Israel,
but anathema to many radical
political activists.
Lay leaders say that attempts to
meet Bishop Desmond Tutu and
UDF members have come a crop-
per over Zionism. Blacks would
deny that their dislike of Israel
was anti-Semitism and would say
the Jews had shown little will-
ingness to talk.
THE BOARD of Deputies,
which manages "domestic" af-
fairs, has traditionally shied away
from any communal political
stand, trying not to alienate sec-
tors of opinion. Then last year
came a breakthrough of sorts, a
Congress resolution condemning
apartheid. Critics point out that
this followed the government's
own rejection of "racial
discrimination" and was tanta-
mount to government support.
But the Board had accepted that
apartheid was a moral, if not
political, issue.
The Board's chairman, Prof.
Michael Katz, said, "On purely
political matters, we do not have
any viewpoint. But where there is
a matter that has a moral or
humanitarian dimension, we have
felt the right and obligation to
take a stand."
Parrying claims that the Board
remains silent on the daily
shootings and detentions, he reels
out protests against the dismantl-
ing of the Crossroads squatter
' camp and submissions to Parlia-
ment on the now-abolished laws
prohibiting inter-racial sex.

The rabbinate, compared to the
bishopric, has also been cautious.
On Yom Kippur, Chief Rabbi Ber-
nard Casper welcomed govern-
ment moves to dismantle legisla-
tion which "entrenches
discrimination and exploitation."
But, he says, "The Jewish com-
munity has not played a major
role in trying to change the
system of life. They have been
more concerned with maintaining
their own Jewish life. They have
tended to look inwards."
Individual rabbis, Reform and
Orthodox, have been more
prepared to stick their necks out.
Rabbi Ady Assabi, spiritual leader
of the Reform Temple Shalom
congregation, said, "Individual
Jews have threatened to get me
out because of my outspokenness.
But I say that Jews either go or
fight the struggle. They can't af-
ford to sit on the fence."
RABBI Ben Isaacson of Johan-
nesburg's Independent Har'El
community, went further.
Religious leaders who tolerated
the shooting of children in silence
had blood on their hands, he said.
Lay leaders were guiding Jews to
"It is a blatant lie that Jews
have supported the cause of
blacks. One day they will have to
answer. Racism is seen as kosher
so long as it does not apply to
Jewish involvement in
mainstream national politics re-
mains patchy and oppositional,
largely because of history.
Although Jews have been in South
Africa almost as long as the
whites, the colony was not opened
up to all religions until the British
occupation of 1806.
Anti-Semitic fascism marked
the edges of the now ruling Na-
tional Party (NP) during Hitler's
rise. Many future leaders were in-
terned as Nazi sympathizers. And
Jews were banned from member-
ship of the Transvaal and Orange
Free State branches until
post-1948. (Anti-Semitic out-
bursts in general now seem
isolated and uncoordinated.)
WHILE THERE are only four
Jewish members of Parliament
all Progressive Federal Party
(PFP) Jews have assumed a
high profile in local politics, filling
16 of the 23 PFP seats on Johan-
nesburg City Council, along with
the post of mayor. But despite
traditional liberalism, there is a
tendency now to adopt the Na-
tional Party as the agent of
gradual reform.
The recent municipal by election
in the 35 percent Jewish Belle
Vue/Judith's Paarl pitted two
Jewish candidates against each
other, with the PFP's Tony Leon
winning by only 39 votes. Emo-
tions ran high. Many religious
voters were seen at National Par-
ty tables, while unknown elements
defaced NP posters with
Holocaust slogans.
Outside institutional politics,
countless individuals are active
throughout the trade unions, the
UDF and such groups as Black
Sash and the End Conscription

of past Jewish activism. Joe

But radical Jews are often
harder to identify and thus do lit-
tle to enhance the community's
image in the eyes of blacks. Many
activists have shrugged off their
Jewishness, not so much because
of Jewish self-hatred as through
disgust at the establishment's at-
titude to apartheid.

reacted by disowning those involv-
ed in radical opposition and refus-
ing to accept that they have failed
to demonstrate the relevance of
Judaism to questions which some
say matter most.
Lorraine Bernstein, chairman
of the broad-based South African
Union of Jewish Students, is
aware of the friction which dual
loyalties can cause. "We try to
show that being a Jew in South
Africa is not being a hermit," she
said, adding that students were
criticized for demanding the
release of jailed ANC leader
Nelson Mandela during a Sharan-
sky rally.

Dear Friends,
As many of you know, I am
located at the Menorah Manor in
St. Petersburg. They give me
wonderful care and the meals are
delicious. They have an in-
teresting daily program con-
sisting of lectures, classical music,
Jewish topics, live entertainment,
and parties. Since I've been here,
many of my friends have visited
and I am very grateful to them. I
hope more people will come by to
see me as I highly treasure my old
acquaintances. My vision is not
too good anymore and I might not
recognize you so please tell me
your name when you greet me.
Over the years I have given my
time and funds to help our com-
munity, our nation, and our belov-
ed Israel. I have always been in-
spired by our beautiful and noble
Jewish heritage and I have tried
to guide my life by the principles
of Judaism. I am grateful to the
Jewish Community for their
recognition of my efforts by
bestowing on me awards, plaques,
and trophies. I only hope that
these awards will inspire others to
carry on this important work.
Over the past 70 years I have
contributed to and worked for
these organizations: Congrega-
tion Rodelph Shalom, Congrega-
tion Beth Israel, the Hebrew Free
School, the JCC, the Jewish
Federation, UJA, Israel Bond
Drive, Jewish War Veterans, the
Scottish Rite, American Legion,
DAV, Community Chest,
Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem,
River Garden Home for the Aged,
Hillel House at U. of F., the Hillel
School, and others. I received
over 100 awards of appreciation. I
also served our country in WWI in
the U.S. Army and in WWII in the
Coast Guard Reserve.
I can tell you many stories of my
experiences. Now I would like to
share with you an incident that
gives me great pride. Forty years
ago I was chairman of the House
Committee at Rodelph Shalom.
The interior walls were dingy and
yellow. I took care of this matter
by buying the paint and hiring the
necessary men and I supervised
the entire project. We desperately
needed to air condition the ShuJ
and there was very little money in
the treasury. I formed a commit-
tee and we raised $35,000 to get
the air conditioning installed
before the High Holidays.
In closing, I would like to invite
all of you to visit me at Menorah
Manor. The short time I have left
is very precious to me and I would
love to share it not only with my
old friends, but also with the new
friends I hope to meet
Thank you,

(The following is an excerpt of a
sermon given by Arthur Shop at
Congregation Rodeph Sholom on
Aug. 8)
Dear Friends,
Allow me to comment on a pro-
gram that was held on May 7 as
pfcrt of the Yom Hashoah remem-
brance program.
On that night, as part of the
"Lest We Forget" program refer-
ring to the tragedy of the
Holocaust, we were subjected to a
sermon by Rabbi Steven Jacobs,
Sr., Rabbi of Temple Emanuel of
Birmingham, Alabama, who gave
us one of the most depressing,
pessimistic, degrading sermons
that one has ever been obliged to
listen to.
While listening to Rabbi Jacobs'
morbid, crass, and irritating
remarks telling us that the Jews
were a dying people, with no hope,
no future, and no life it was all
that one could do to keep from
shouting out to him and saying
No! we are not a dying people. We
are a living people, vibrant and
alive. A people with life and vigor
and with hope for a bright future,
here in America and in our
beautiful state of Israel.
The Rabbi must know that we
have contributed much in the past
and we shall continue to con-
tribute much in the future.
There are many new initiatives
for peace for Israel and for the
Middle East. Prime Minsiter
Peres's meeting with King
Hassan of Morocco, Abba Eban's
meeting with the Russians, King
Hussein's constant moves
towards peace with Israel, and
now the Pope visiting a
synagogue in Rome. Progress is
being made slowly but surely.
What we need from our Rabbis
is an uplifting of our spirits for a
brighter future for life not for
Rabbi Jacobs should tell us of
the great accomplishments of our
people and of Israel's contribu-
tions to alleviate the struggles of
many of the Third World coun-
tries. He should tell us to keep liv-
ing not dying.
Yes, we have lost a lot but we
have gained a nation, a country
that we can call our own and one
which has given a haven to our
wandering people around the
We do not relish the loss of one
child, of one Jew, of one father or
mother, but if such was our fate at
Meast we have an Israel.
Commentators on nationwide
TV have reiterated that in order
to have a lasting peace let the
Arabs and the PLO recognize
Israel's right to exist and stop
all of their terrorist activities.
Then the United States and all
peace loving nations would join
Israel in establishing a fair and
everlasting peace.
Rabbi Jacobs did not once men-
tion Israel, its people, or its hopes
and aspirations. A rabbi of his
stature and capabilities should
have encouraged every Jew, every
Jewish child, and every Jewish
organization to continue its work
and support for a growing Israel,
for higher Jewish education, for
Jewish survival, and for Jewish
global support for peace. That
should have been his message.
The future of the Jewish people
is bright and an inspiration to all
people everywhere. Although sue
million of our Jews have died
there are over 15 million living,
vibrant Jews like you and me,
alive and striving for a bigger and
better world for tomorrow. This
should have been his message on
Yom Hashoah.

USF Archeologist Discovers Mysterious Artifacts At Excavation Site
The discovery by a University
of South Florida scientist of an-
cient pagan artifacts in a Jewish
home dating from the fourth cen-
tury C.E. has sparked an ar-
cheological mystery.
Dr. James Strange, dean of
USF's College of Arts and Let-
ters, and his associate, Gary Lind-
strom, found a miniature horned
bull, a tiny altar and a bowl, all
cast in bronze, while searching for
relics in Sepphoris, the ancient
capital of Galilee.
"This is the first time all three
items have been found together.
And it is extremely rare to find
them in a Jewish house," Strange
said. "I never would have
predicted this."
Strange said the discovery of
the artifacts came near the end of
the all-volunteer excavation work
at the site near Nazareth. The
Sepphoris project came on the
heels of Strange's participation in
the successful attempt to produce
by natural means markings on a
shroud similar to those found on
the Shroud of Turin.
The archeologist said the bull,
altar and bowl were found near
the bottom of a 12-foot deep,
rubble-filled cistern in the remains
of a Jewish house. Strange said
the archeologists were certain the
home belonged to a Jewish family
because of the earlier discovery of
ritual baths beneath the house.
Strange explained that these
baths were used by the in-
habitants as part of a ceremony
where Jews would ritually cleanse
their bodies and spirit in order to
be more acceptable to God on the
Sabbath and other holy days. The
USF scientist said the ar-
cheologists at Sepphoris found
several rooms adjoining the ritual
bath, including one which
featured niches carved out of the
stone wall, where clothing may
have been stored during the bath.
Strange said part of the
mystery associated with the
discovery of the idol and the af-
filiated pieces is that while the
surrounding rubble dated from
the fourth century C.E., the
bronze relics are much older,
possibly dating well beyond the
first century B.C.E. The ar-
cheologist said another puzzling
aspect of the find is that the ar-
tifacts were laid gently in the
cistern, and not tossed out.
Strange said there .ire a couple of
possible explanations as to how a
pagan idol came to be discovered
in a Jewish house.
The USF scientist said the
bronze set could have been found
at some other location and
brought to the house by a child,
who wasn't aware of its religious
"Or," he continued, "it could
have been a keepsake, possibly
that of a gentile servant, that had
been handed down through the
Strange said the bull, altar and
bowl could have been hidden by
the Jewish family when they
received word in the mid-fourth
century AD that Roman troops,
under orders from the Christian
Caesar Callus, were marching to
the area.
Strange explained that Sep-
phoris had long been the most im-
portant and powerful city in the
area and the mixed population of
Jews, Christians and pagans
benefited from a good relationship
with Rome. But Callus, the ar-
cheologist said, made some
economic changes that dissipated
the city's influence and the
citizens revolted.
Strange said Gallus sent troops
into the area to ruthlessly crush
opposition by destroying the cities
and towns, including Sepphoris.
The archeologist said Gallus was
known as a "Christian fanatic,"
and the residents of the Jewish
house may have hidden the idol in
order to avoid additional persecu-
tion from the Roman soldiers.
Since the city was destroyed, it
is assumed the homeowners never
had the chance to recover the
keepsake from the cistern. He
said the destruction of Sepphoris
was so complete that fires scorch-
ed the area and even melted glass
in many of the homes.
He also said continued excava-
tion of the remains of Sepphoris
may help solve the mystery of the
bull, altar and bowl. The three
pieces have been given to the
Department of Antiquities of the
Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem
to be cleaned and for eventual
"They won't be cleaned so they
look like new," Strange explain-
ed, "they will remain green, but
they will clean off the outside

20 Years Experience
These Artifacts were discovered by USF ar-
cheologist James Strange during a recent trip
to Israel. The miniture bull and altar, along
with the bowl, are pagan idols thai were found
in the remains of fourth century C.E. Jewish
He said the relics were in ex-
cellent shape and had a good bit of
metal remaining in the core after
all these centuries. In addition to
the bull, altar and bowl, the
volunteers at the site found
substantial quantities of bones
and pottery.
The 40 volunteers that accom-
panied Strange to Sepphoris were
from various areas in the United
States, including Florida, Califor-
nia and Maine. They were tutored
in archeology and were given
hands-on experience in exchange
for their labor at the dig site. Ten
residents of the Tampa communi-
ty were members of Dr. Strange's
1986 volunteer archeological
team. They were Maurice Curtis,
Edgar Ellis, Steven Fishman,
Terry Hood, Richard Mathias,
Beverly Moss, Barbara Pilcher,
Carolyn Strange, Joanna Strange,
and Katherine Strange.
Plans are being made to resume
the excavation work at the site
from June 12 to July 17, 1987. In-
terested volunteers should call Dr.
Strange's office, 974-2804, and
speak to Susan Calhoun. The
volunteers will be eligible for class
credit through USF's Weekend
College program. The program is
designed to offer college credits to
persons who wish to participate in
such programs abroad.

Discussion of the political scene
in South Africa properly begins
with the self-evident stipulation
that apartheid is racist and
If you are a black citizen of
South Africa, you cannot vote in
national elections; you must
generally use separate public
facilities; you are not allowed to
own real estate in 87 percent of
your own country; you are told
with whom you may socialize, and
where you can look for a job. If the
government wants to resettle you,
it can do so at any time for any
The "homelands" resettlement
drive has forced half of South
Africa's blacks into overcrowded,
unproductive segregated Ban-
tustans, areas with no industrial
base that are so overpopulated
hardly any viable agricultural land
remains. Drinking water is unsafe
and sanitation deplorable. Since
the Bantustans are little more
than detention camps, many
Africans migrate to urban centers
as "illegals" subject to arrest.
Forty percent of black children
are estimated to be malnourished
and ten percent suffer from (ex-
treme protein deficiency).
In 1984, Pretoria's Constitution
granted Parliament chambers to
Asian and "colored" communities
but not to blacks.
On the positive side, black, col-
ored and Asian trade union
membership has grown from
160,000 after legalization in 1979
to 750,000 today and blacks' real
income has risen substantially in
the last 25 years, higher than in
any other African country. The
U.S. State Department says that
more positive changes have taken
place in South Africa in the last
five years than in the previous
Hotels, parks and theaters are
being integrated, and the pass
laws controlling where blacks can
live and work were recently
revoked. Other reform com-
mitments that are going to be
translated into legislation include
guaranteeing blacks freehold pro-
perty rights.
Paul Johnson, British historian
and former editor of the New
Statesman, recently wrote in
Commentary: "There is .. over-
whelming evidence that South
Africa has been moving away
from apartheid ... It is quite clear
that P.W. Botha ... is convinced
that apartheid has to go and has
been dismantling it almost by
stealth to avoid panicking the bulk
of the regime's followers."
Nevertheless, apartheid re-
mains in force today. We, as Jews,
with a collective memory of cen-
turies in European ghettos and
who have experienced the
singular evil of racism, feel a
special personal responsibility to
insist on its dismantling.
But this is not to suggest closing
our eyes to what may emerge once
apartheid is gone. Political morali-
ty demands that the values that
see us abhor apartheid also
measure the society that will
follow. We must distinguish bet-
ween those who will work for a
humane, democratic, pro-Western
South Africa and those who are
totalitarian, anti-humane, anti-
democratic, anti-Israeli and anti-
It is in this context that the
African National Congress (ANC),
so frequently discussed as an
alternative to the Botha Govern-
ment, merits a close, unsentimen-
tal look.
The question can be fairly ask-
ed, what has all this to do with
As a revolutionary national
liberation movement oriented
toward Moscow, the ANC has
long echoed Soviet attempts to
undermine the legitimacy of
Israel. Moreover, perhaps not sur-
prisingly, the ANC is a strident
supporter of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization.
In 1970, the ANC denounced
"Israel's aggressive expan-
sionism" as "supported to the hilt
by the ruling circles of the U.S.
and their allies" and urged "all
peace-loving non-aligned states
... (to) immediately sever state
relations with Israel..."
An article in the September,
1971, issue of Sechaba, the mon-
thly ANC magazine headlined,
"Zionism, South Africa and Apar-
theid a Paradoxical Triangle,"
was adapted from a pamphlet
with the same title published by
the Palestine Research Center, an
affiliate of the PLO.
-In September, 1980, ANC
president Oliver Tambo spoke in
Paris at an International Con-
ference on Solidarity with the
Struggle of the Namibian People,
sponsored by the World Peace
Council, a Soviet front. He said:
"... I would like to assure our
comrades in the liberation strug-
gles ... and the PLO ... that
their struggle is ours our fight
is carried on in the knowledge of
the degree of intimacy and
political, military and economic
alliance that has been developed
between racism and Zionism."
At the 60th anniversary
meeting of the South African
Communist Party (SACP) in 1981,
Tambo stated: "Today, in the anti-
1 800 432 3708
imperialist struggle, we have won
new allies like the struggling, peo-
ple of Palestine. We have thrown
up new enemies of peoples, like
those who murder civilians in
In July, 1982, during the
Israeli military action against
Lebanon-based PLO terrorism,
ANC chief United Nations
observer Johnstone M. Makatini
denounced Israel for its "flagrant
and unprovoked aggression
against Lebanon" and its "at-
tempted extermination" of the
Palestinian people. He referred to
Prime Minister Begin's policies as
"Zionist Nazism."
Witnesses who had been
associated with the ANC testified
before the U.S. Senate Judiciary
Committee Subcommittee on
Security and Terrorism in March,
1982, that the ANC cooperated
with the PLO and that some
members trained in the USSR
with PLO cadres.
In 1983, a controversy
erupted at the State University of
New York at Stony Brook involv-
ing Professor Ernest (Fred) Dube,
who taught a course on "The
Politics of Race." Dube, an ANC
representative at the United Na-
tions serving on the ANC's Na-
tional Educational Council, taught
that Zionism is a form of racism
and suggested as a term paper
topic the theme, "Zionism is as
much racism as Nazism is
racism." Dube spoke at a "Teach-
in on Palestine" in New York in
December, 1983, sponsored by the
November 29 Coalition, a pro-
PLO organization of radical leftist
and Arab-American groups. In an
interview published in the July-
August 1985 issue of Palestine
Focus, a publication of the
November 29 Coalition (now
renamed the November 29 Com-
mittee for Palestine), Dube said
that "what the Zionists did to the
Arabs in Palestine was exactly the
same that the whites did to us" in
South Africa.
-At the ANC National Con-
sultative Conference in June,
1985, Oliver Tambo stated: "In
1973, the Arab armies succeeded
to inflict a major defeat on Zionist
Israel for the first time in a
quarter of a century, forcing U.S.
imperialism to seek new measures
to protect its client state in the
Middle East."
The ANC, the PLO and the
South West Africa People's
Organizations (SWAPO) were
observers at the second annual
United Nations North American
Regional Non-Governmental
Organizations (NGQ) Symposium
on the Question of Palestine, in
July, 1985, under UN auspices in
New York. The symposium, held
to plan an anti-Israel propaganda
campaign in the U.S. and Canada,
was replete with anti-Israel and
pro-PLO declarations that often
straddled the fine line between
criticism of Israel and its sup-
porters and outright anti-
- The ANC and the November
29 Committee for Palestine
cosponsored a meeting in New
York in April, 1986, on the sub-
ject, "Israel-South Africa: The
Apartheid Connection?" Similar
meetings have since been held in
many other American cities.

throw the South African govern-
ment, is a "national liberation

Party (SACP) for 30 years.
- The ANC is oriented toward
the Soviet Union and its East Bloc
allies, who have furnished it with
arms, funding, military training
and other liogistic support.
- Oliver Tambo, who has head-
ed the ANC since 1964 when
former president Nelson Mandela
was sentenced to life imprison-
ment for acts of sabotage, is a
member of the Presidential Com-
mittee of the World Peace Council
(WPC), a leading Soviet-

Communist Party.
The ANC is a member of the
Afro-Asian People's Solidarity
Organization (AAPSO), described
in 1983 by the U.S. State Depart-
ment as a Soviet-controlled front.
Sechaba, the ANC magazine,
is printed in Communist East
Moses Mabhida, General
Secretary of the South African
Communist Party, speaking at the
SACP 60th anniversary meeting
in 1981, said: "Our Party .. fully
supports the same program of
liberation as the African National
Congress for the seizure of power
and black majority rule."
In 1982, seven members of
the ANC national executive com-
mittee were identified in sworn
testimony before the U.S. Senate
Subcommittee on Security and
Terrorism as SACP members.
The 30-member national ex-
ecutive committee now has 12 to
15 members said to be affiliated
with SACP.
The ANC supports the Soviet
Union on foreign policy issues.
Tambo told the June, 1985, ANC
National Consultative Con-
ference: "... the democratic,
anti-feudal and anti-imperialist
revolution in Afghanistan had
been saved, with the support of
the Soviet Union."
In a message to the same con-
ference, the SACP Central Com-
mittee stated:
"... The SACP pledges to
do its utmost to ensure that your
decisions are carried into the field
of struggle and implemented."

ANC spokesmen were
featured speakers at banquets
sponsored by the Communist Par-
ty newspaper, People's World,
held this spring in California.
The fall of South Africa to such
a Soviet-oriented and Communist-
influenced force would be a severe
setback to the United States,
whose defense industry relies
heavily on South Africa's wealth
of strategic minerals. If America's
defense industry were handicap-
ped, our allies' security would also
be at peril. A recent Commerce
Department report noted that
South Africa possesses 83.6 per-
cent of the world's chromium;
80.8 percent, platinum; 70.8 per-
cent, manganese; and 47.7 per-
cent, vanadium.
In the event of a Communist-
influenced or controlled revolu-
tion, South Africa's dependence
on income from the expert of
strategic metals would perhaps
result in continued sales to the
West. However, if South Africa's
strategic metals were controlled
by a regime favoring the Soviet
Union, American vulnerability to
making political concessions to
Moscow would increase
Moreover, should South Africa
be controlled by a regime suppor-
tive of the Soviet Union, sea lanes
and "choke points" around the
Cape of Good Hope through the
Red Sea, trade routes to the South
Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and
from the Persian Gulf would be at
During the last three decades, it
has been made painfully clear to
the American Jewish community
and to all supporters of human
rights, that while tyrannies can be
overthrown, at times the regimes
replacing them may be even
Some examples: In Cuba, the
authoritarian Batista was replac-
ed by Castro's Communism; in
Iran, the undemocratic Shah's fall
brought to power the tyrannical
Ayatollah Khomeini; in
Nicaragua, the corrupt Somoza's
ouster saw the Communist San-
dinista regime rise to power. And
in Vietnam, the boat people are
our times' searing reminder of the
spawn of Communism.
As Freedom House has
stated,"... South Africa bears
the major onus for the bloodshed.
Oppressed by the system of apar-
theid imposed on them by the
white minority, the Africans are
fighting back in whatever ways
are possible."
The ANC and the South African
Communist Party are not the root
causes of the upheaval in South
Africa. Communists exploit and
manipulate economic and political
desperation and oppression for
their own purposes. South Africa
is a tinder box; the Communists
are poised to strike the match.
Yet there is still time for other
agents of change to take hold and
a number of them exist today in
South Africa. Those partisans of
democratic alternatives can take
heart at the recent outcome in the
Philippines, in which a democratic
force, Corazon Aquino, emerged
One example of assistance to a
democratic alternative is the two
month training program in
political, economic and social self-
sufficiency for concerned leaders
from the black township of
Soweto currently taking place at
the Afro-Asian Institute in Tel
Aviv, Israel.
Israel's labor federation, the
Histadrut, a staunch opponent of
apartheid, runs the Afro-Asian In-
stitute. The training program
focuses on unionizing South
Africa's black workers, develop-
ing black civil infrastructures,
organizing black women and
teaching social work.
Israel has repeatedly condemn-
ed apartheid and has expressed its
willingness to join other countries
in efforts to end racist policies
through economic sanctions
agaisnt South Africa.
The writer Thomas Mann wrote
at the conclusion of his epic novel,
"The Magic Mountain":
"Out of this universal feast of
death, out of this extremity of
fever, kindling the rain-washed
evening sky to a fiery glow, may it
be that Love one day shall
The same question applies to
violence-ridden South Africa. The
survival of freedom in South
Africa will be possible only if the
forces of violence on the far left
and of racial violence on the far
right are defeated by the
democratic forces of moderation.
Israel And The Soviet Bloc
Israel will resume
diplomatic ties with Poland
and Hungary before such
ties are formed with the
Soviet Union, according to
political sources here. The
sources noted that ties with
Poland at the lowest
diplomatic level of "interest
sections" in Warsaw and
Tel Aviv are expected to
be established this month
followed by similar relations
with Hungary.
Poland's resumption of
diplomatic contacts with Israel
was initiated by Warsaw,
although this move apparently
received the green light from
Moscow, according to Israeli ex-
perts on Poland. That green light
was given which, the experts
noted, explains the delay in the
implementation of the agreement
in principle which was reached
several months ago in talks bet-
ween Israeli and Polish diplomats
in Bonn.
THE TALKS in Bonn followed
those between Shamir and the
Polish Foreign Minister at the
United Nations General Assembly
in New York last autumn. Official-
ly, Holland will continue to repre-
sent the diplomatic interests of
both countries.
As for relations between
Hungary and Israel, the two coun-
tries have had relatively
developed contacts for some time.
Hungary, for example, has for the
past three summers been a
popular destination for Israeli

which includes real dried fish as
well as several gold ones. Miriam

Laventhol and Horwath feels
strongly about supporting the
State of Israel since it is the only
democracy in the Middle East and
an extremely important strategic
ally of the United States.

Belling has tried to open the pages

The Orthodox have closed ranks
with the amalagamation in March
of the Johannesburg-based

Cape counterpart. While a long-

realize they cannot afford
fragmentation in the face of an
aging, declining population.
The Reform movement, which
accounts for less than one-fifth of
South Africa's Jews, is confronted
with financial problems and dif-

Unique Interfaith Fellows Program Flourishes At School
of Graduate Studies Of Hebrew Union College
They come from across the
United States; in fact, they come
from as far away as Japan. They
come from divinity schools, from
theological seminaries, from Bap-
tist congregations and Catholic
parishes. They are priests, nuns,
ministers, of different ages, dif-
ferent races, different faiths
but they all come to the Cincinnati
campus of Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion for
one common purpose: to be train-
ed as scholars in advanced areas
of Judaica and Hebraica as par-
ticipants in the College's unique
Interfaith Fellows Program.
The Interfaith Fellows Program
of HUC-JIR's School of Graduate
Studies awards masters and doc-
toral degrees in specialized areas
including Bible, Ancient Near
Eastern languages, Hellenistics,
Jewish religious thought and
philosophy, and rabbinics.
What brings many of Chris-
tianity's most dedicated and
talented scholars to Hebrew
Union College? Their realization
that an understanding of the roots
of Christianity is gained only
through a thorough knowledge of
the Hebrew Scriptures, rabbinic
literature, and Jewish history.
During their stay at HUC, the In-
terfaith Fellows live on campus,
attend classes and religious ser-
vices together with the rabbinic
students, and participate in all
aspects of College life.
An associate professor of Old
Testament at Northwestern
Lutheran Theological Seminary, a
1966 graduate of the Interfaith
Fellows Program, writes "My so-
journ in the Camp of Israel at

Chabad Lubavitch Presents An Evening
With The Lubavitcher Rebbe
On Monday, Aug. 26, at 9:30
p.m., parts of Tampa will have the
opportunity of viewing live via
satellite, a public address by the
foremost Jewish spiritual leader
Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.
The 20th day of the Hebrew
month of Av this year, Monday,
Aug. 25 will mark the 42nd an-
niversary of the passing of the
late Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneer-
son, the Rebbe's father.
Rabbi Levi Yitzchak was a
renowned Chassid, a brilliant
Talmudic scholar, and one of the
foremost Kabbalists of recent
times. He served for many years
as Chief Rabbi of what is now
known as Dnepropetrovsk, in
Soviet Russia.
With enormous self-sacrifice,
despite the oppression of the com-
munist regime, Rabbi Levi Yitz-
chak devoted himself to helping
his brethren with all their
material and spiritual needs. The
He passed away there, on the 20th
of Av, in 1944.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi
Menachem M. Schneerson, is con-
sidered to be the most
phenomenal Jewish personality of
our time. In his years as leader of
world Jewry he has set into mo-
tion massive social and educa-
tional programs which con-
tinuously touch the lives of
millions of people around the
world, Jews and non-Jews. Under
his Leadership the Chabad-
Lubavitch movement has become
the most dynamic force
The Interfaith Fellows Program
was begun in 1947 by HUC's then-
president, Dr. Nelson Glueck. His
words describe the program's pur-
pose, and its goals:
When these ministers have com-
pleted their studies at the College
and have gone out into their
ministry or into the academic
world of their own divinity
schools, our hope is that they will
teach the Christians of America
that which the rabbinical students
must teach the Jewish of America,
and what we must all teach one
another namely, that the
human heart is big enough to em-
brace all men and that the divine
spirit is within all of us.
Since the program's inception,
more than 60 Christian fellows
have earned a PhD at the School
of Graduate Studies. These
graduate students take from HUC
an approach to education, and to
life, that is broad in scope and in
insight. Alumni include an
associate professor of Old Testa-
ment at Duke Divinity School, a
member of the Faculte de
Theologie at the Universitie de
Montreal, a professor of Jewish
studies at the Catholic Theological
Union, a professor of Old Testa-
ment at the Conservative Baptist
Theological Seminary, and the
president of the Ancient Biblical
Manuscript Institute in Clare-
mont, California.
Father Reinhard Neudecker, a
1978 graduate of this special pro-
gram, is pursuing his career at the
Pantifieio Institute Biblico in
Rome. He writes, "I feel as if I am
living in the Diaspora now. But I
hope there will be a returning (to
Cincinnati), because without the
contact with Jewish scholars and
with a good library, I will not be
able to meet the tasks and expec-
tations arising in Rome."
Dubbed the "Jesuit Rabbi" by
his colleagues in Rome, Father
Neudecker was ordained a priest
in the Society of Jesus in 1969,
and studied rabbinics at HUC for
nearly seven years before joining
the Biblical Institute in Rome in
1978. During his years there, he
has seen the number of students
in his courses and seminars grow
from a handful to hundreds, all
eager to deepen their understan-
ding of Jewish religious thought
and of the relationships between
Judaism and Christianitv.

"The School of Graduate
Studies has emerged from the
scholarship and resources of the
HUC-JIR rabbinic program," Dr.

awareness among our own people,
but also to contributing

"The vitality of Reform Judaism
indeed of all liberal religions
requires that we maintain and
augment historical perspectives
as well as factual knowledge," he
added. "Our Interfaith
Fellowships have provided for the
training of scores of Christian

and colleges of their own faiths,
and bring a totally new dimension
and perspective to their work as a
result of having received their

Experiences of Volunteers for Israel
Bar Mitzvah
There is only one bus a day that
goes to Kibbutz Malkeya in the
Galilee from Haifa. It services all
the Kibbutzin and Arab villages
along the route.
What would have been a hum-
drum ride turned out to be a very
exciting one. The beauty of the
land, the orchards, the farms, the
fish ponds, the forests all came in-
to view as the ride progressed up
the mountain. The bus driver sen-
sing our excitement became our
tour guide pointing out different
places of interest. For example: in
the easternly direction, you can
see the Hulah Valley, then the
Golan Heights, and in the north
east Mt. Hermon. Lebanon was on
the other side of the fence next to
the road we were traveling on.
Jackie, our hostess met us at the
bus stop. As we walked the
kilometer to her home, we
wondered about our accommoda-
tions; will we be comfortable in
our new environment; what would
we do; where do we eat; what kind
of people live on the kibbutz; what
is their relationship with one
another; their cultural and
demographic backgrounds?
We could not believe our eyes as
we approached the home of Bob
and Jackie (Bob is a psychologist
and Jackie is a bio-chemist). The
homes in the area were modern
town houses painted white with
red shingles on the roofs. The
landscaping of grass, flowers and
trees made the surroundings
similar to that in any fully land-
scaped neighborhood in the
United States.
The interiors were equally as
beautiful. The first floor had a
den, small kitchen, a dining room
living room combination, and a
patio. The upper floor had two
bedrooms and a second patio. Was
this the way a kubbutznik lives or
were we dreaming? The reality is
that some Kibbutzim are more ad-
vanced than others. We were
lucky to be guests at Kibbutz
families and 360 children plus
volunteers live in Malkeya. The
original group came from Iran in
1948. They took over an abandon-
ed British Army Camp on top of
the mountain. As of 1986,
members come from 12 countries.
Their life style is enviable, the
family unit is a cohesive one.
Parents hugging and kissing their
children, the children responding
in a similar fashion. Families in
America have lost this touch of
one for all, all for one.
Children start early with
responsibilities. They have to
work a certain number of hours a
year, to fulfill their obligation to
the kibbutz. Shelly, the daughter
of our hosts (16 years old) worked
in the fields. Saturday is Kibbutz
visiting day no invitations, just
knock on the door and say "Shab-
bot Shalom.''
Education is important to the
Kibbutz, not only for the children
but for the adults as well. Malkeya
had their own primary school staf-
fed by teachers who live there and
a centrally located high school
shared with other kibbutzim. The
high school teachers are also Kib-
butzniks. The adult's education in
college is financed by the Kibbutz.
Members have many profes-
sional backgrounds. There are
PhD's, college professors, a con-
servative Rabbi, psychologists,
agronomists, economists, civil,
mechanical and electrical
engineers, an orthonologist,
nurses, computer technicians, a
micro biologist, poets (with
published works), etc.
The Kibbutz produces cattle for
beef, chickens for meat (as com-
pared to egglayers) one half
million per year, 60 tons of kiwi
(this is being enlarged), 2,500 tons
of different varieties of apples,
285 tons of plums, fish from the
fish ponds, pears, wheat, corn,
cotton, and educational games.
It's a tall order to achieve so
much production with a limited
membership. Volunteers are,
therefore, welcome. Current
volunteers came from Denmark,
Ireland, Sweden, Scotland and
Sixteen female soldiers lived on
the Kibbutz as part of their army
training. Their period of service
ended while we were there. As a
final gesture, they presented a
show for the members. The
details, the songs, dances and
scenery were all taken care of by
the soldiers.
After a short furlough, they will

The success of Malkeya is based
upon the cooperation of its
members as dedicated workers
and their participation in the
democratic administration of its
internal affairs.
Our heartfelt thanks to Jackie

perience life on a kibbutz.

Ask Your Congressman. ..
Dear Congressman Gibbons:
Drug abuse has become a tragic
national menace. It seems that
even increased narcotics enforce-
ment and interdiction efforts are
being overwhelmed. Florida,
because of its geographical loca-
tion and many miles of shoreline,
has become a port of call for drug
smugglers and is being swamped
with illicit drugs. Can't we do
Dear S.P.:
The answer to your question is
yes we can do more and will! The
problem of drug abuse in this
country is far too serious to
The most severe human costs
are indicated by drug-related
emergency room admissions and
deaths. The numbers have in-
creased dramatically in recent
The economic and social costs of
drug trafficking and addiction to
this country are staggering as
well. The price of narcotics abuse
amounts to more than $100 billion
annually in increased health care
costs, lost productivity, and
related crime and violence.
That is why I introducedJegisla-
tion to help fight drugs. My bill
would reimburse state and local
governments for the costs of drug
investigations when such in-
vestigations result in convictions
and new revenue for the Treasury
of the United States.
The need for such legislation is
evident. State and local govern-
ments provide the bulk of the
work in drug investigations. Since
convictions are often based on
federal tax avoidance, the federal
government reaps the benefit.
However, since there is no current
reimbursement mechanism, nor
are there often sufficient funds in
the budgets of the other two levels
of government, some drug in-
vestigations cannot go forward
because of a lack of funds.
My bill would redress this ine-
quity and make the states and
local governments full partners in
our national war on drugs.
The U.S. House of Represen-
tatives, recognizing that narcotics
enforcement efforts need
strengthening, is compiling a
package of tough legislative in-
itiatives that will be brought to
the Floor on Sept. 10.
I believe my legislation would be
a significant addition to this
legislative war being waged on
Florida has been a pathfinder in
developing and applying economic
remedies to the problem of crime
and I will work to see that the rest
of the nation follows our lead.
