Shamir vs. Peres: the images, the issues
Jewish Chronicle
Often in America we hear
the complaint that there is
no difference between the
two major political parties,
that southern Democrats
and Conservative Repub-
licans are exactly the same,
as are the liberals in both
Whatever the truth is in
that complaint, that is
certainly not the case in Is-
rael, which faces national
elections on July 23. The
parties range from the ul-
tra-nationalist right to the
communist left; from the
religious parties to citizens'
rights parties.
The two major parties, or
rather coalitions of parties,
Labor and Likud, reflect
Israel's diversity. That
diversity can be partic-
ularly noted in the two
parties' leaders.
A key Israeli official,
whose name cannot be dis-
closed, gave the Chronicle
his personal evaluations of
the two Prime Minister
"Yitzchak Shamir
(Likud)is a very secretive,
almost introverted man
who is quite stubborn and
strong in his beliefs. He has
no charisma, no eloquence
as a public speaker and, in
fact, was forced into public
life by Menachem Begin
either as his handpicked
successor or merely to
blunt the popular appeal of
Ariel Sharon," stated the
inside source.
"His strengths are that
he is meticulous, extremely
well organized and a hard
worker who inspires hard
work in others. He is un-
wavering and steadfast."
Shamir's history would
back up the official assess-
ment. Since the days when
he headed Lehi, a group of
underground militants that
split from Menachem

been famous for his

militant Lehi (Stern

party in 1967 after a recon-

After Moshe Day an's
death, in 1981, Shamir rose
from Speaker of the
Knesset to Foreign Mini-

heir to pick up the party
reins, even though he is a
marked contrast in style to
Begin. While Begin had
political flair, Shamir is
respected for his quick, in-
telligent grasp of complex
problems and for his cool
nerve as well.
Because of his lack of
flamboyance, Westerners
often regard Shamir as
more moderate than Begin,

Israelis view Peres'
candidacy as now or never,
since his leadership has
resulted in two previous
losses to Likud.
His zero-for-two record
can be interpreted two
ways: his detractors claim
his political survival is a
symptom of his appetite for
power; his supporters call it
courage and tenacity.
Like Shamir, Peres, 61,
was born in Poland and
came to Israel as a small
child. His leadership
talents were evident at an
early age. While still a
youth, he was a co-founder
of Kibbutz Alumot. In
1948. at age 25, he was
named head of Israel's
naval forces and at the
tender age of 29. he became
director-general of the
Defense Ministry. A con-
fidant of Ben Ciurion, he
joined B-G when the break-

lit measure-. 28 by 21 feet and was
Iciade of unhewn stones, as
ordained by the Torah.
"I do not claim that this altar
is the altar Joshua built, but I do
claim that we have here a highly
important ritual center." Zartal
told reporters. "The indications
this discovery gives fit in with
the Biblical traditions."
Zartal added: "It is the first
time in archaeological research
that an Israelite ritual center has
been uncovered with a full scale
burnt offering altar that can
teach us how our religion
committee and the entire state."
It is perhaps understandable
that survivors of the hijacked bus
should be less enthusiastic than
Sarid about the findings of the
Zorea Commission. Yehudit
Schwartz, one of them, said that
after she had suffered 12 hour of
fear in the bus, she wasn't about
to "condemn the manner in which
two terrorists had been killed."
A similar reaction came from
Moshe Portuguez, whose 19-year-
old daughter, Orit, waa killed
when an Israeli commando unit
stormed the bus. "While we are a
law-abiding land," he stated.
"the terrorists must understand
that they have no chance of sur-
viving a hijacking. If there was a
death penalty for terrorists, no
one would take the law into his
own hands. But since, in fact,
such a penalty is never imposed.
I see no reason to condemn the
behavior of those who killed the
Such attitudes exist despite a
concerted attempt by the educa-
tional authorities, in conjunction
with the Israel Defense Forces, to
make youngsters approaching
their callup realize the impor-
tance of civilized behavior even in
time of conflict. Many classroom
discussions take place on what is
called taharat haneshek, "the
purity of arms."
One incident frequently dis-
cussed in those classes took place
in the Jordan Valley in the late
'60s. An Israeli army unit was
pursuing a band of terrorists.
They followed the Arabs to a
cave, but standing at the
entrance to the cave was preg-
nant Bedouin woman who swore
that no one was hiding inside.
While she tried to convince them
this was the case, a terrorist crept
up behind her and. with several
short bursts of fire, killed four
Israeli officers. The terrorists
were subsequently killed in
battle, but the woman was
allowed to leave unharmed.
This, the new recruits are told,
is how Israeli soldiers must act.
and. indeed, it is the way they
have acted in Lebanon over the
last two years. Instead of
shooting first and asking
questions later, on many
occasions Israeli soldiers have
held their fire in a attempt to
save civilian lives. As a result,
many additional casualties have
been suffered.
Some youngsters don't buy
this approach. "Unless Arab
teenagers are learning about
taharat haneshek, there k* no
reason why we should," the
young skeptics say
To be sure, there are quite a
number of people who demand
that. Israelis maintain higher
moral standards than their
neighbors, whatever the conse-
quence. But even they are dis-
concerted by the" holier than

"Look," one of them told such
a critic, "you have to adjust your

When you live in an upper
middle-class suburb, you can

rusalem district court judge im-
posed an 18 month prison sen-
tence on Noam Yinnon of
Moshav Keshet on the Golan
Heights, plus a second 18 month
sentence which was suspended.
Yinnon is the first of the 27 al-
leged members of a Jewish
terrorist underground who were
indicted last month to go on trial.
His case was tried separately
from the others after the State
prosecutor agreed to a request by
the defense attorney to drop
charges of attempted murder.
The underground, based on the
West Bank, has been implicated
in a series of violent crimes
against Arab civilians during the
past four years and the planned
bombing of five Arab-owned
buses in East Jerusalem which
was foiled by Israeli security
forces on April 27.
Yinnon was convicted of un-
lawful possession of explosives
and transporting explosives,
offenses which carry a maxium
penalty of 10 years in prison. But
the presiding judge accepted the
defense contention that Yinnon
did not know and did not imagine
that the explosives he carried
would be used to take lives. Ac-
cording to the charge sheet, the
explosives were used to manufac-
ture powerful bombs which were
planted in the Arab buses and
timed to detonate at the peak of
rush hour on April 27. The judge
said he was convinced that
Yinnon sincerely regretted his
But he denied a defense motion
to postpone sentencing for a week

Every Jew of Spanish-
Portuguese origin in Antwerp,
Venice or Constantinople, or in
any other city of exile, recognized
instantly that when "The Lady"
was spoken of, it was Dona
Gracia Naai who was meant. It
was a title of respect for a
remarkable figure of the High
Renaissance, who was easily the
most famous Jewish woman of
her time.
"La Senora" was an expression
of admiration and love for a
fellow refugee who never forgot
her own people. She was wealthy
and she waa powerful, an
accomplished businesswoman,
whose name was known through-
out Europe. But she always rem-
embered and the world did not
let her forget that during one
of Judaism's darkest periods of
despair, a strong bond united her
to the thousands of homeless,

Dona Gracia Naai did not like
crowds. She preferred to keep her
shades drawn when traveling.
Crowds reminded her of her
Portuguese childhood, of the
mobs that streamed excitedly to
the marketplace whenever an
auto-da-fe was held, of the rabble
that attended the trials and ap-
plauded the verdicts. Those
verdicts inevitably led to piles to
straw, dark curling smoke and
the stench of burning flesh that
permeated the countryside. Dona
Gracia knew well the danger of
being one of the "damned."

They are stand-up comics,
complete with microphones in

that tickle the funnybones of
their audiences, whether they are
performing before an all female
crowd at the Bellyroom in the
Comedy Store in Hollywood, or
before what Weinstock dubbed as
a "gracefully aging crowd," at
UCLA Hillel.
They have been friends since

is characteristic aplomb: "What
kind of a name is Lotus?" "I
made it up," Weinstock snapped
They now appear frequently on
double bills as opposite in
appearance as in comic philo-
sophy but with two key
similarities that strongly support
Weinstock's contention that they
are really "the opposite sides of
the same brain." Both view
comedy as an arena for their
feminism and their Jewishness.
Remarkably, neither woman
attributes her comic view of life
to childhood deprivation or a
"classroom cut-up mentality."
Levine, in her late 30s. recalls
being labeled, "the smart one,"
as a child growing up in Fairfield.
Conn. Her parents, whom she
describes as "intellectuals." were
nonreligious. although they made
several perfunctory attempts at
exposing Levine to Judaism,
including sending her to day
"I lasted one day," she
reminisced in her office at
Universal Studios, where she also
is a successful producer and
comedy writer. "The teacher
wouldn't accept my criticism ol
the book we were reading. I
didn't go back."
Set on becoming an actress.
Levine joined the Methodist
Youth Fellowship as an adoles-
cent, to be with her friends,
budding performers. "My
parents objected." she confessed,
She attended her first
synagogue service at Radcliffe
College, where she majored in
theater, but her strong feelings of
"Jewishness," as she calls it, did
not surface until several years
later, while she was living in
Cologne, writing comedy routines
for the German equivalent of the
American television show,
"German television relies quite
heavily on American comedy
writers for material." she
explained," because Germans
know absolutely nothing about
comedy." She remembered a
German publicist, one of the first
to interview her, who said, "Tell
me when you say something
funny. I want to be sure and
write it down."
Yet for the first time in her life.
Levine. who had never given
serious thought to her heritage,
was confronted with anti-
Semitism. "The papers were full
of confessions of ex-Nazis." she
remembered, "with no one
raising strong objections about
how the Jews had suffered."
But the incident that "hit
home." the one she remembers
vividly more than six years later,
was the remark made by a
German colleague while excusing
a fellow German's miserly
behavior. "He can't help it. His
grandmother was Jewish."
Levine credits that incident
with her renewed interest in
Judaism. When she returned to
the States to continue to polish
her comedy writing and perform-
ing skills, she began seriously to
explore her Jewish roots.

of anti-Semitism remains as fresh

when it happened.

She became Maury Hay den (or

As Maury she was a successful

comedienne, with an act that
landed her on the Johnny Carson
show. "I faked my way through
it," she remembered during an
Lotus Weinstock
interview in her apartment in
North Hollywood. "I wasn't

If there were regrets, or a set-
back in her career, Weinstock
refuses to dwell on them, prefer-

natural to hear her say: "The

"I wrote the Ten Commandments

Jew. Isaac Moiseyevich Brodsky.
He was short, slightly built, in
his early forties, with bad eye-
sight wearing very thick glasses
which were constantly slipping
off his small nose. Brodsky had a
shock of thick black hair, small
brown eyes, and very seldom
smiled. He wore a small Van

second balcony. I remember
counting the 70 steps as I was
going up. The next day Comrade
Nikolai Matveyevich asked me
how I liked the play. I thanked
him for making it possible for me
to have such a wonderful expe-
rience. I would never forget it.
And I never did.
My work became more and
more time consuming. I began to
appreciate how much was being
accomplished in this vast and
growing establishment.
.From time to time high
ranking leaders from Kiev,
Poltava and Moscow came in for
a day to review the progress
being made and make inspec-
tions. They spent several hours
behind closed doors with Petrov
and Brodsky. Once during such
an inspection period Petrov
called me in behind those closed
doors and introduced me to the
visitors. I was elated to have
been singled out for what I
considered a great honor.
Now as I reflect on the oppor-
tunity given to me by Petrov, the
experience of working with him,
having him for a good friend and
meeting so many different kinds
of people, sometimes seems like a
dream. But the reality is that
those events helped shape my
ideas, actions and goals.
A Psalm of Life
Tell me not, in mournful
Life in but an empty dream I
For the soul ie dead that
And things are not what they
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Waa not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow
. Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than today .
Let us then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing.
Learn to labor and to wait.

What do we do there? We hold
a short Shabbat service or Jewish
holiday services in one of the
rooms that constitute the Chapel
In addition we sometimes
study the Bible or discuss some
religious issue or Israel or some
phase of Jewish life. We also
provide the holiday delicacies for
the inmates such as latkes for
Chanukah, Moment aschen for
Purim, a Seder plate for
Passover, bliiues for Shavuot,
etc. '
One of the women brings her
chalil (recorder), another brings
her guitar to accompany me as I
lead Shabbat or Yom tov or
Israeli or Chasidic songs.
It often turns out to be a time
for informal group therapy, there
the Jewish inmates pour out their
woes, the trials and tribulations
of prison life. In addition, we
usually bring Jewish reading
material books, Hadassah and
B'nai B'rith magazines.

The following officers were
installed at a meeting of the
Interfaith Council of Greater
Hollywood held on Wednesday,
May 30 at Temple Beth El.
Reverend Wayne Martin,
President; Rabbi Robert Frazin,
1st Vice President; Sal Oliveri,
2nd Vice President; Joyce

Strangely, there is Jewish
observance outside our monthly
service: one of the women is a
vegetarian and is therefore able
to keep kosher. The Jewish
women usually light Chanakah
candles. Also, at one time, the
Chaplain made it possible for
them to light Shabbat candles. In
addition, the Chaplain at the
prison co-operates in making
possible a "milchig" (dairy)
breakfast after Yom Kippur.
Strange how these people have a
need for God and something that
reminds them of their Jewish
ness. It isn't easy to be a
minority of 3 or 4 amidst some
400 inmates.
I consider myself fortunate to
be able to service these people.
Sometimes my responsibilities
carry me to meetings or tele-
phone calls with the families of
inmates. Once I had to contact
the "powers that be" in Tal-
lahassee to allow an inmate who
had lost both her parents in an
airplane crash to attend the
funeral out of state and to sit
"Shiva" upon her return to the
The girls have ways of
surprising me. Once one of them
brought tomato seeds and we
planted them on Tu B'Shevat,
the New Year of the Trees. Some-
times poetry is written and read.
It's almost always a highly
spiritual experience. Often it's
sad as I wonder how such intel-
ligent women landed in this
prison. But mostly I came away
with the feeling expressed by
Jacob in the Book of Genesis
"Surely the Lord is in this place
and I didn't know it."
The following is a letter
Federation recently received from
one of Broward Correctional
Institution's inmates.
"You should know what our
Rabbi Richter and his helpers
from the Federation mean to us
here at BCI-especially to me, I
have been here for seven years
cut off from the world outside,
except for those who make an
effort to reach in and hold onto
me. I have been separated from
my children, both of my beloved
parents and also my beloved
Uncle during these years, as well
as the usual sufferings that one
must endure in prison and
through it all, my Rabbi was here
for me and with me and that has
been a great comfort! All of the
others the Christians have
people coming to them to give
them support, comfort,
companionship, and keep them a
part of the outside world so they
know they aren't forgotten. It is
attractive to others to be
taken under their wing in loving
kindness and in fellowship. But
we here at BCI need not seek
outside of our own because we
have our own! Thank
