Insurance Commissioner
Gunter to Speak at BEF
Insurance Commissioner Bill Gunter
In Argentina:
If you are a doctor, lawyer, CPA or businessman
... if you own a home, car or boat, be sure to at-
tend the next Business Executive Forum meeting
on June 25.
It may be the most important business meeting
you'll attend all year.
Florida Insurance Commissioner Bill Gunter will
tackle the issue of the skyrocketing costs of liabili-
ty insurance, which carries serious ramifications
for South Broward residents and professionals.
The escalating costs and diminishing availability
of commercial property and liability insurance now
threatens mainstreet business and professional
practices in Florida.
Commissioner Gunter will address these issues
at the Wednesday, June 25, Business Executive
Forum. The BEF cocktail hour will begin at 5:15
p.m. at Emerald Hills Country Club, 4100 North
Hills Drive in Hollywood.
Gunter's political career dates back to 1966
when he was first elected to the Florida Senate.
He later won re-election bids by overwhelming
margins. As a state senator, Gunter was the key
leader in a successful effort to broaden the state's
constitutional initiative provision and a vocal sup-
porter of Florida's "government in the sunshine"
Elected to the United States Congress in 1972,
representing Florida's Fifth Congressional
District, Gunter served on the House Agriculture
Committee and on the House Science and
Astronautics Committee, becoming deeply involv-
ed with the nation's agriculture problems and
space program.
In 1976, Gunter was elected Treasurer-
Insurance Commisssioner of Florida. Two years

Reign of Terror Ends; Nightmare Continues

Part One Of
A Three-Part Series)
tina's night of terror and carnage
is over at last but the nightmare
goes on. The dawn of democracy
has brought no end to the agony of
the relatives of the
"desaparecidos," the 9,300
(documented) to 30,000
(estimated) individuals, mainly
youths, devoured by the Moloch of
the junta during its 1976-83 reign
of terror.
These "disappeared persons,"
Argentina's contributions to the
20th century's chamber of hor-
rors, were pulled from their beds
at gunpoint in the dead of night,
snatched off the streets into un-
marked cars, hauled off from their
offices. Never heard from again,
Uiey have no graves, not even uti:
marked ones. Their bodies were
thrown into the sea from
helicopters, burned to ashes in
crematoria, and cast, mutilated
and dismembered, into lime pits.
The Jewish commnity,
traumatized by the reign of ter-
ror, now seeks, like the majority
of Argentinians, to put the past
behind it, fearing that disinterring
the human rights atrocities might
endanger the fragile democratic
regime of President Raul Alfon-
sin. The community, however, is
still rent by bitter conflict over
what it did and did not do for the
victims of the terror, in particular,
the Jewish desaparecidos.
While these charges and
counter-charges have come into
the open in Argentina since the
reinstitution of democracy in that
country, the information the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency has
learned regarding the heroic
rescue of Jews during the reign of
terror via an "underground
railroad" organized by Israelis
stationed in Argentina has not
been made public.
An estimated 10 percent of the
desaparecidos were Jews a pro-
portion higher than the Jews' one-
and-a-quarter percent in the
population. They included what
the junta called "ideological
criminals," people in psychology,
the social sciences, journalism,
teaching and over 100 children
of desaparecidos. Entire chapters
and all the local emissaries of
Haahomer Hatzair, the Socialist
Zionist youth movement, disap-
peared. Most of the counselors
and almost the entire youth move-
ment in Cordoba disappeared.
Since the reign of terror began
in 1976, a group of women has
been marching every Thursday in
front of the Presidential Palace in
Buenos Aires to demand an ac-
counting on the fate of their disap-
peared children. They are known
as the "Madres," the Mothers of
the Plaza de Mayo.
Renee Epelbaum. a widow in
her 60s, is one of their leaders.
Her three children are among the
desaparecidos; none have ever
been heard from or about since
their abduction. Luis, who had
been a medical student concerned
about his country's poor, was kid-
napped in August 1977 at the age
of 25. The younger children
Claudio (then 23), a poet and musi-
cian who was studying law to be
able to defend prisoners of cons-
cience, and Lila (then 25) were
kidnapped three months later
from Uruguay. Their mother had
sent them there to try to ensure
their safety.
She is one of six mothers and
one grandmother appearing in a
recently released documentary on
"Las Madres: the Mothers of the
Plaza de Mayo," which premiered
at the Film Forum here. The film
was produced and directed by
Susana Munoz, an Argentina-born
Jew who was active in a Zionist
youth movement, and lived in
Israel from 1972-79, and Lourdes
Epelbaum, in an interview with
the JTA during her recnt visit to
New York in connection with the
film, said that Jewish
desaparecidos "were not kidnap-
ped as Jews, but it helped. The
police were more suspicious of

Shavuot: Concept of the 'Chosen People'
By Rabbi Harold Richter
President, South Broward Council of Rabbis
Director of Chaplainty, JFSB
SHAVUOT, which begins on Thursday evening June 12, and is celebrated
on June 13 and 14 is known in our prayerbook as "Zeman Matan Torateinu,"
the Season of the Giving of the Torah.
G-d says to us, "If ye will hearken to My voice, and keep My covenant,
then ye shall be Mine own treasure (segulah) from among all peoples." (Ex-
odus 19:5) The acceptance of the Torah put us in the category of
"chosenenes8." But while traditionists prize the idea, some groups of Jews
have partially or totally discarded the Chosen People concept.
In the post-Holocaust era, they say, it smacks of racism and even though
they may not verbalize it they feel the concept is not unlike Hitler's
malevolent "Master Race" preaching. Others have re-interpreted the idea of
choseneness to mean, as one medieval philosopher explained: "We chose G-d
by choosing to accept the Torah, hence He chose us."
All in all, we are faced with the questions, "Are we still chosen? What
gives us the right to feel that we are more chosen than other peoples? Is it a
democratic idea? Is G-d fair?
To answer we must say that to be 'chosen' is not always a great gift.
Tevye, in "Fiddler on the Roof asks in a soliloquy to G-d, "Why don't you
choose someone else for a change?" Realistically choseness implies service.
We chose G-d and the Torah to be of service to G-d and the world to be a
"Light to the nations." And truly, it is not always a desirable role
As G-d's instrument we sometimes become the object of derision and tor-
ment. So we ask those who still believe in the choseness of Israel, "What
keeps us chosen?" Or to be more exact: "Why do we still have the feeling that
we're chosen, whichever way you interpret the idea?"
To answer this we might tell a non-Hasidic Hasidic tale: In the wilds of
Africa there was a tribe of people who held to the custom of dowery, except
that the bridegroom gave tne dowery instead ot tne bride, n one wanted to
marry, one would give a water buffalo to the bride's father for a very plain
woman, two buffaloes for one with some measure of beauty and three buf-
faloes for a very beautiful bride. Now in this locale there was one woman who
didn't seem to measure up even to the one-buffalo standard. Most people con-
sidered her unattractive, hardly worth even one water buffalo. Then one day a
stranger came to the village. He eyed this woman whose father felt she would
probably remain an old-mud and said that he would give the father seven buf-
faloes to marry his daughter. The father gladly accepted but, together with
the other villagers felt that this stranger is some sort of a fool, if not extreme-
ly naive. The stranger married the wallflower-girl and quickly left town to live
with his bride in his own village.
About three years later the stranger and his wife returned to her native
village. Strangely, when the people saw her they gasped. She was now strik-
ingly beautiful. They couldn't believe their eyes. Some of the people approach-
ed the fortunate husband and asked, "How did you know how beautiful she
really was? The man retorted, "I kept reminding her that she was a seven-
buffalo woman?"
In a like manner G-d always reminded us that we are a "seven-buffalo
people." In our adherence to the mitzvot and in our undying devotion to men-
shlichkeit, G-d always let us know how precious we are to Him. This is what
truly energized us and made possible our survival. You ask, "Is this fair?" To
this we may answer, "Let others also choose G-d and they will likewise
become chosen."

20 Women to be Ordained Rabbis This Month
By Ben Gallob
NEW YORK (JTA) The total
of American women rabbis is ex-
pected to reach 130 in June when
20 women will be ordained as
Reconstructionist, Conservative
and Reform spiritual leaders, ac-
cording to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency's annual survey.
The Reconstructionist move-
ment ordained seven women as
rabbis in graduation ceremonies
last week at Congregation
Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia.
Six women were ordained as
Reform rabbis also last week at
graduation ceremonies at Temple
Emanu-El in Manhattan. Six
women are to be ordained as
Reform rabbis in ceremonies on
June 7 at the Isaac N. Wise (Plum
Street) Temple in Cincinnati.
The JTA reported previously
that Nina Bieber Feinstein of
Diilas, Texas, had met all
scholastic requirements for or-
dination as a Conservative rabbi,
the second Conservative woman
rabbi in American history.
Feinstein was ordained at
graduation ceremonies here on
May 11 at the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America (JTS), site
of the Conservative rabbinical
school. Amy Eilberg of Bloom-
ington, Indiana, was the first
Cosnservative woman rabbi. Or-
dained in 1985, she was appointed
as a chaplain at the Methodist
Hospital in Indianapolis where she
continues to serve.
The names of the seven women
graduating from the Reconstruc-
tionist Rabbinical College (RRC)
Judy Gary of Richmond, Va.;
Gail Glicksman of Philadelphia;
Laurie Levy of Elkins Park, Pa.;
Sue Levy of Abington, Pa.; Avis
Miller of Washington, D.C.; Joan
Sacks of Chicago; and Sheila
Weinberg of Philadelphia.
At the New York school of the
Reform movement, the Jewish In-
stitute of Religion, six women will
be ordained as Reform rabbis.
They are: Judith Cohen-
Rosenberg of Brooklyn; Ellen
Greenspan of Scarsdale, N.Y.;
Margaret Holob of Tustin, Calif.;
Shira Milgrom of Berkeley, Calif.;
Nina Mizrahi of New York City;
and Paula Winnig of Milwaukee.
The sue women to be ordained as
Reform rabbis by the Cincinnati
school, the Hebrew Union College
(HUC) are: Eve Deena Ben-Ora of
Scottsdale, Ariz.; Ellen Sue Levi
of Buffalo, N.J.; Ruth Langer of
Pittsburgh; Margaret Jane Meyer
of Cincinnati; Linda Jean Motzkin
of Los Angeles; and Julie Sue
Schwartz of Cincinnati.
The first class of 20 women can-
didates in the rabbinical school of
the JTS was admitted two years
ago, in the climax to a battle
JWB Convention Discusses
Future of Jewish Life
TORONTO (JTA) "The kind
of future of the Jewish family we
have will determine whether our
grandchildren will be Jewish,"
Rabbi Reuven Kimelman, a
Brandeis University professor,
told North American and world
Jewish communal leaders at the
recent opening plenary of the
1986 JWB Biennial at the
Sheraton Convention Centre
Almost 1,000 Jewish communal
leaders from throughout the
United States and Canada and
representatives from Israel,
Europe and South America at-
tended the five-day convention
last week.
"As the family goes, so goes
Judaism," Kimelman told the
delegates. "There is no Jewish in-
stitution more brittle than the
family. The family is the
barometer of private Jewish
health. But there can be no
private health without public
"The implicit message of
modernity was that Judaism
should become a private thing. In
public, Jews were expected to
emulate the dominant culture.
The result was that Jews imposed
upon themselves a dichotomy bet-
ween the private and public
As Jews wnet more public "they
became visibly less Jewish,"
Kimelman said. "Since social and
economic achievement was gained
in the public arena, success was
correlated with a lack of visible
Jewishness. As we played out
more and more of our lives in the
public arena we became less and
transmit our
to the next
less able to
The result, he said, "was that as
a Jewish community became
socially and economically in-
tegrated it disintegrated
Jewishly." Kimmelman warned,
"If this process were to continue
here our coffins would be sealed
by the time all of America's Jews
have four American-born
The Holocaust and the State of
Israel have "created a post-
modern Judaism," he said. "The
Holocaust taught Jews that their
visibility does not increase their
vulnerability. On the contrary, the
lack of Jewish visibility in posi-
tions of power, in a pluralistic
culture, is what renders them

Jews. For them, every Jew must
be a Communist."
The junta, she continued, was
"deeply anti-Semitic." Jews in
prison received three or four
times the measure of torture as
non-Jews. This has been substan-
tiated by Amnesty International,
former prisoner Jacobo Timer-
man, and, most recently, by Nobel
Peace Prize winner Adolfo Perez
Esquivel, who was himself im-
prisoned and tortured for 14
Epelbaum told the JTA that the
DAI A, the representative body of
Argentine Jewry, was not active
in intervening with the authorities
on behalf of Jewish desaparecidos
(who became non-persons) and
prisoners (whose incarceration
was on record) a charge the
DAIA emphatically denied in its
1984 document on the subject.
Rabbi Marshall Meyer, who
served until recently as spiritual
leader of Congregation Beth-El of
Buenos Aires, was a founding
member of the Permanent
Assembly for Human Rights, and
visited prisoners in jail. In a re-
cent interview with the JTA in
New York, where he now serves
as rabbi of Congregation B'nai
Jeshurun, he criticized the DAIA
for not speaking out forcefully on
human rights atrocities in
Both Epelbaum and Meyer told
JTA that the DAIA urged Jewish
communities outside the country
to keep silent about the horrors.
Epelbaum said she was told that
World Jewish Congress affiliates
did so because of the WJC policy
that they cannot intervene when a
local affiliate, in this case the
DAIA, opposes it. WJC secretary
genera] Israel Singer told the JTA
that the WJC spoke out anyway.
Meyer also revealed the scope of
the unofficial rescue work the
Israelis were doing in Argentina
during the reign of terror: runn-
ing a latter-day "underground
railroad" to get Jews at risk out of
the country. Israel's Ambassador
until 1980, the late Ram Nirgad,
and his staff "worked tirelessly
night and day, and saved hun-
dreds of Jews," he said. "He was
involved with every case." Meyer
described the operation: when a
Jew was kidnapped, the next
thing the security forces would do
was get a hold of his or her ad-
dress book and seize all her or his
friends and acquaintances. Nirgad
and his people, therefore, quickly
compiled a list of names of all the
friends and colleagues of a disap-
peared person, who were at grave
"We went from doorv to door,
from house to house," he con-
tinued, "persuading parents to let
their children go with us. They
had to leave at once." Meyer
would not disclose the route out of
Argentina or the immediate coun-
try of destination. Dov Schmorak,
who took over Nirgad's job until
1985, told the JTA last year that
he and the DAIA made secret ar-
rangements with the government
and security forces who would let
certain prisoners go if the Israelis
would get them out. The Israelis
often went in the middle of the
night to the prisons, took the
released Jews to the airport, and
got them out of the country.
"They rescued several hundred
Jewish prisoners this way," the
JTA was told.

Call after 5 p.m.
within the Conservative movment
over such admission of nearly a
decade, a battle led by the Rab-
binical Assembly, the association
of Conservative rabbis. Both
Eilberg and Feinstein were
members of that initial class.
Women had been permitted to
take JTS rabbinical school
courses, after being informed that
taking such studies would not
qualify them for rabbinical status.
Both Eilberg and Feinstein
qualified for graduation and or-
dination through transfer credits
and credits earned in the JTS rab-
binical school which became valid
for ordination after the first class
with women was admitted.
Since the rabbinical schools of
the HUC-JIR, the JTS and the
RRC all have women studying for
the rabbinate, the supply of such
rabbis is certain to grow. The JTA
was informed tha the number of
women attending the JTS rab-
binical school as of the close of the
1985-86 academic year was 30, in-
cluding 11 who enrolled in
September, 1985. One of the 11
dropped out.
There are 26 women currently
enrolled in the Reconstructionist
Rabbinical College.
Most of the 110 women who
have been ordained as rabbis since
such ordination began more than
ten years ago were placed in posi-
tions as assistant rabbis. Some
have since been advanced to posi-
tions as associate rabbis. A
minority of the women rabbis
have taken administrative and
teaching positions.
Some of the women rabbis have
been named to "solo" pulpits, a
designation for a rabbi in a con-
gregation too small to need more
than one rabbi.
The program of ordaining
women as rabbis began in 1972
when Sally Preisand was ordained
as a Reform rabbi. She served as
assistant rabbi, then associate
rabbi at the Stephen Wise Free
Synagogue in New York City,
before resigning to accept a pulpit
at Temple Beth El in Elizabeth,
N.J. She then became rabbi of
Monmouth Reform Temple in Tin-
ton, N.J., her present post.

Save Taxes Today
Invest in the Jewish Community
Recent financial developments and the existing tax laws make
it easy to become a philanthropist and to enjoy significant per-
sonal rewards. Consider the following:
The stock market has provided many of us with unprecedented
gains and a unique opportunity to make a lasting gift to the com-
munity at very little cost. For example, you may have significant-
ly appreciated securities which you have held for at least six mon-
ths. According to local tax attorney Gene Glasser, "the current
law allows you to contribute this stock to the Jewish Community
Foundation and receive a maximum tax deduction for the ap-
preciated value."
In addition, when you give these appreciated securities to the
Jewish Community Foundation you pay no capital gains tax.
You can use gifts such as these to create your own personal
philanthropic fund or trust with the Jewish Community Founda-
tion of South Broward. Different types of funds can be tailored to
your needs and desires. For example, the yield earned by the re-
investment of these funds can be designeated by your either for
charitable purposes or can be returned as income to you or your
Because these endowment funds continue to earn income, gifts
to the Jewish Community Foundation live on after you, providing
benefits for generations to come.
The Jewish Community Foundation is our promise for the
"The endowment fund can provide financial security for the
community. It is our reserve for emergencies," said Dr. Philip
Levin, chairman of the Foundation. "No family or business would
operate without a back-up or savings account. So, too the Jewish
community must have a reserve.
"It can provide resources to seed new programs and maintain
existing services in the lean years. It enables us to plan for tomor-
row," Dr. Levin added. "The endowment fund guarantees that
the work we begin today through our annual UJA/Federation
campaign can be continued by generations that follow us."
The time is right for considering an endowment gift. Act now
while you can take advantage of financial gains and maximum tax
benefits under current laws.

Jackson-Vanik Is
Key to Helping
Free Soviet Jews
By Morris J. Amitay
While visits by foreign dignitaries, celebrities and heads of
state are anything but unusual in Washington, Natan Shcharan-
sky's recent visit here generated an unusual interest and excite-
ment. Having fought an empire and won, Shcharansky emerged a
hero his grace, humor and unbroken spirit were praised in
Washington by journalists, politicians and the White House.
What was particularly noteworthy to the future of Soviet Jewry
were Shcharansky's repeated statements of support for the
Jackson-Vanik Freedom of Emigration amendment, which was
adopted by the U.S. Congress over a decade ago.
This legislation, which tied increased U.S. Soviet trade with a
freer Soviet emigration policy (applying not only to Jews), has
been criticized by some members of the Jewish community and by
U.S. companies seeking to expand their ties with the Soviet
Union. Shcharansky's statements underscore the fact that this
act of Congress is a powerful weapon in obtaining the release of
more Soviet Jews. His call of support for this amendment coin-
cides with an abysmally low level of Jewish emigration, but also at
a point when the Soviets need U.S. technology and trade to
modernize their society. With the U.S. tightening restrictions on
the transfer of high-tech strategic items to Russia, Gorbachev will
have to increasingly seek U.S. trade if he is to demonstrate
economic progress to his people.
By continuing to deny the Soviet Union most-favored-status un-
til its emigration policies improve, the United States will have a
valuable negotiating tool when the hard bargaining begins. Given
the usual Soviet behavior, cynical and self-serving, the situation
probably will change only when it is advantageous to the Soviets
to improve it. It is mystifying, therefore, why we should be willing
to unilaterally surrender this weapon. But it is heartening that
Shcharansky is urging that the Amendment be retained. Surely
his judgement is based on so much sad experience.
A recent interview in a relatively obscure defense journal with
the Commander-in-Chief of the Jordanian Armed Forces was a
much greater cause for pessimism than the more publicized televi-
sion network appearances of King Hussein.
Gen. Ben Shaker, Jordan's senior military officer and long-time
close advisor to the king, let the cat out of the bag when answer-
ing questions about Jordan's forthcoming arms purchases and
modernization plans. Shaker, as the "moderate" head of the army
of a "moderate" Arab nation, made statements during this inter-
view that are most disturbing:
"The number of aircraft we required was hardly adequate for
defense, let alone the conduct of offensive air operations against
targets within Israel despite what the Jewish lobby in the
United States would have us believe."
And just in case anyone missed the point, Ben Shaker added,
"Israel received every piece of equipment that they ask for from
the Americans. We cannot hope to compete with them in this field
and therefore we must be prepared to oppose their numerically
superior forces with highly-trained and committed troops."
Nowhere in this particular interview was there a single
reference to potential conflict with Syria. The conclusion was un-
mistakable that Jordanian modernization of its armed forces was
to face west against Israel.
While Jordan should undoubtedly be concerned about Syria's
aggressive designs, you couldn't get that from the interview. If
Jordan, widely reported to be eager to make peace with Israel, is
sending this kind of signal, it only underscores the difficulty of
Israel's achieving real peace with her neighbors.
Terrorism: The Syrian Connection
Both Secretary of State George Shultz and
Deputy Secretary John Whitehead assert that the
United States "has no reason to doubt" that Syria
was behind the April 17 attempt to blow up an El
Al passenger plane over Europe. There is, essen-
tially, no room for doubt. Nezar Hindawl, a Jorda-
nian charged with the crime by British authorities,
says that he was trained in Damascus, was issued a
Syrian passport and was escorted to London by a
Syrian intelligence officer on a Syrian plane. He
also says that he met with and was personally
briefed by the Syrian ambassador to Great Britain,
Luftalah Haydar, prior to embarking on his mis-
sion of murder. He also states that his brother,
Ahmad Nawaf Mansour Hasi, was acting as a
Syrian agent when he took part in the April 5 bom-
bing of a Berlin nightclub that took the life of an
American soldier. West German authorities agree.
Hindawi's confession is tantamount to finding a
smoking gun in the possession of the Syrian
government. For years, Syrian involvement in in-
ternational terrorism has been well known.
Damascus openly backs the Abu Musa wing of the
PLO and the Abu Nidal faction. Its Iranian and
Lebanese Shi'ite operatives in Lebanon appear to
have been behind the suicide bombings that killed
hundreds of Americans, French and Israelis in
Lebanon since 1983. However, until now there has
been no single piece of evidence as damning as the
Hindawi confession.
The question now arises as to what the United
States and our allies are going to do about it.
Secretary Shultz, speaking on the Today show,
refused to acknowledge that Syria's involvement
in terror is as blatant as Libya's. He detects a dif-
ference between the Libyan government, which
"bragged about terrorism" and the Syrian govern-
ment, which denies responsibility for the El Al at-
tack. There is no difference. First, Hafez Assad
recently told West Germany's foreign minister
that his government would continue to encourage
terrorism against Israel. Second, rhetorical
denials don't count for a thing. If 390 airline

passenger, including many Americans, had died in
the April 17 incident, no one would argue that
Syria should bear no consequences because
despite the evidence it disclaimed responsibility.
Most murderers deny participation in the act. If
the evidence says something else, then so what.
The main difference between Libya and Syria is
that Syria is a far more dangerous nation than
Libya. Not only is it militarily strong but it is back-
ed by the Soviet Union to an extent far beyond the
backing Moscow provides Libya. Moreover, Syria
is not a fringe state in the Arab world. It is a major
Middle East player and is often viewed as Arab na-
tionalism's capital.
There is another complicating element. The
Syrian-Israeli border may be on the verge of new
hostilities. Damascus has been issuing war threats
and has moved 25,000 troops from Lebanon to
bases on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
Hafez Assad says that his goal is to take the
Heights away from Israel as a first step on his
march south to Haifa. Israel, for its part, is trying
to calm the situation. It certainly does not want a
war with Syria. And the United States does not
want to see a Syrian-Israeli war either.
None of these considerations argue for U.S.
timidity in the face of Syrian terrorism. The
United States government has said that nations
backing terror will pay the price. The Syrians have
now been caught redhanded. They, and not their
junior partners in Libya, have been exposed as in-
ternational terror's kingpins. This, then, is no time
for Washington to issue disclaimers for the
Syrians. The Administration should, instead,
utilize this opportunity to let Damascus know that
it is playing a very dangerous game. If it continues
to instigate and support terrorism, it will face
serious consequences. Syria, like Libya, is not

Columnist View Is Distorted
Friday, June 6,1986
Volume 16
Number 18
By M.J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
Washington Post columnist
William Raspberry wants the
United States to get "back to
basics" in the Middle East. For
him, the key "basic" is an obvious
one: "the homelessness of the
Palestinians." As far as he is con-
cerned, Palestinian
"homelessness" is the cause of in-
ternational terrorism. Even fur-
ther, he asserts that it was "the
action taken by a guilt-ridden
world to make a home for the
Jews (that) left the Palestinians
There is so much wrong with
Raspberry's formulation that it is
difficult to know where to begin.
First, perhaps, is his mistaken
view that a "guilt-ridden world"
established Israel. On the con-
trary, Israel was established by
the Jews of Palestine who after
60 years of developing their
ancestral homeland declared in-
dependence 38 years ago.
The State of Israel like all the
other newly independent states of
the post-colonial era was
established by its own people. In-
dependence was won after a
decade-long struggle with the col-
onial power, Great Britain (which
backed the Arabs), and after hurl-
ing back invaders from a half-
dozen Arab states. A "guilt-
ridden world" embargoed arms to
the Jews and quietly readied
obituaries for the still-born Jewish
nation. It didn't turn out that way
but only because of Jewish
military power, not thanks to
anyone's sympathy.
The problem with Raspberry's
view is that it denies Israel
legitimacy as a nation. It
relegates Israel to that small (in
fact, non-existent) category of na-
tions created by guilt. Israel can
then be denied the respect given
to countries like India, Algeria,
and those in most of Africa which
threw off the colonial yoke. In-
stead it can be dismissed as the
creation of colonialists, a view
which contradicts history and
trivializes the deaths of the 6,000
Israelis in the 1948-1949 War of
Another thing wrong with
Raspberry's thesis is his accep-
tance of the idea of Palestinian
homelessness. Raspberry does not
seem to know that the majority of
Palestinian Arabs never left
Palestine. Palestine which
never existed as a separate
political entity is a geographic
area that includes all of Israel, the
West Bank, the Gaza strip, and
the Kingdom of Jordan. Jordan
was only separated from Palestine
by a British edict in 1922 but was
before that and remains a
part of Palestine. It is in those
four areas Israel, the West
Bank, Gaza, and Jordan that
the overwhelming majority of
Palestinians live.
It is true that the Palestinian
Arabs do not have an independent
state of their own. However,
Palestinian Arabs inside Israel
have the full rights of citizenship
there. West Bank and Jordanian
Palestinians are citizens of Jordan
and are represented in the Jorda-
nian parliament. They were
denied the right of statehood
when the Arab states rejected the
United Nations Partition Plan of
1947 which called for a Palesti-
nian state alongside Israel and
forfeited a chance at self-rule
when they rejected the 1978
Camp David plan which promised
West Bank autonomy. Israel,
which accepted both the Palesti-
nian state of the partition plan
and Camp David, should not be
blamed for mistakes made by the
But the most blatant error in
Raspberry's thinking is his belief
that the condition under which
Palestinians live produces inter-
national terrorism. Can he really
believe that Muammar Khadafy or
Abu Nidal acts out of concern for
the Palestinian people? And if he
doesn't, then how can he believe
that "solving" the Palestinian
problem will make terrorism go
away. The simple fact is that it
won't. Much terrorism in the
Arab-Israeli context is, in fact,
conducted by radicals who want to
block a political settlement.
The only way to deal with ter-
rorism is to implement protective
security measures at home and
abroad. Embassies arid other U.S.
offices abroad should be made as
secure as possible. On those occa-
sions where terrorists succeed in
pulling off an act of carnage, the
United States should respond as
President Reagan responded to
Khadafy. As far as the Palesti-
nians are concerned, their, pro-
blem must be dealt with. They
have been given a raw deal by
history and by virtually all the
players in the Mideast, starting
with their own leaders. Still, a
solution must be found that allows
them justice and Israel its
legitimate rights' including securi-
ty. That solution is certainly not
being advanced by terrorism.

Smith Meets Shcharansky
Friday, June 6, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
After an emotional luncheon
celebrating the release of Soviet
dissident Anatoly "Natan"
Shcharansky, Congressman Larry
Smith (D., Fla.) promised to "keep
up the struggle" on behalf of all
the refuseniks who still remain in
the Soviet Union. "To truly honor
this courageous man," said Smith,
"we must not forget the
thousands of others who have yet
to see the light of freedom."
"Today is a great occasion filled
with joy and happiness for all
freedom loving people," the
Florida Congressman exclaimed
after meeting Shcharansky at a
luncheon on Capitol Hill. "His
warm reception here indicates
that there is a genuine concern
about the fate of Soviet refuseniks
and prisoners of conscience. We in
Congress are committed to keep-
ing the pressure on the Soviet
Union to open their gates and let
the Soviet Jews go."
The luncheon, sponsored by the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee and the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee (of which Smith
is a member), followed a special
ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda
where Shcharansky was welcom-
ed by congressional leaders. He
was the first private citizen
honored with a ceremony in the
"Today Shcharansky said that
'English has become the language
of liberty the U.S. has made it so.'
Let us vow to keep that language
free of empty rhetoric and to
redouble our efforts on behalf of
those who remain behind the Iron
Curtain. Today we welcomed
Natan Shcharansky to the United
States as a free man. Tomorrow
let's hope to welcome thousands
more," Smith said.
"His release was won not only
by the efforts of .the Congress and
others in government, but also by
the fight waged by Americans

cluded Smith. "I commend both

Yaacov Ruina, an Israeli soldier
missing in Sinai since the war of
attrition in the early 1970's, has
raised hope that scores of other
Israeli soldiers and sailors missing
in action over a period of nearly
two decades will be accounted for.
Kuina's body was returned to
Israel this week. An Israeli
delegation sent to Egypt to locate
MIAs said it was found in a grave
in an Egyptian military cemetery.
Gad Navon, the chief army
chaplain, and his aides flew to the
site and identified the soldier,
reportedly by his dogtags.
The delegation returned here
with more information about
soldiers missing since the Yom
Kippur War in 1973. They said the
Egyptian authorities extended
maximum cooperation. Ruina's
however, was oniy the sixth body
returned from Egypt since 1974.
Navon said Israel is using highly
sophisticated methods of iden-
tification and hoped that more
bodies will now be identified.
The missing include soldiers
who fought in the 1967 Six-Day
War; sailors who went down with
the Israeli destroyer Eilat, sunk
by the Egyptians; and the 69 crew
members of the Israeli submarine
Dakar, which was posted missing
in January, 1968, probably in
Egyptian waters.

TEL AVIV (JTA) The Israel
Defense Force beat God by a
57-17 percent margin when
respondents to a survey were ask-
ed to comment on the Biblical
quotation "The Guardian Angel of
Israel slumbers not, nor sleeps."
Only 13 percent thought the
State of Israel was the guardian
angel and 10 percent suggested it
was the people of Israel. The
United States came out poorly.
Only 2 percent saw its role as
Israel's guardian, a tie with those
who said it was a case of every
man for himself.
The survey, which found Israelis
optimistic about peace and confi-
dent in the country's security
situation, was part of a research
project on national security and
public opinion conducted by Tel
Aviv University's Jaffe Center for
Strategic Studies.
A total of 1,172 Jewish adults
was polled. Kibbutz members
were not included. No less than 96
percent of the respondents were
confident that Israel will continue
to exist and 86 percent saw no
danger of another Holocaust.
While most thought Israel's
security situation today is not
quite as good as it was prior to the
1982 invasion of Lebanon, they
were sure it would improve.
Three-quarters of the
respondents thought that Israel
could successfully repel a combin-
ed attack by all of its Arab
neighbors; 94 percent were sure
Israel would win a war against
Syria alone; and 92 percent
thought Israel would win the war
against terrorism. A substantial
69 percent was convinced that
Israel could sustain weakened
support from the U.S.
On politically controversial mat-
ters, 47 percent favored the status
quo in the administered ter-
ritories; 23 percent favored an-
nexation; and 30 percent would

UJA Secures Auschwitz Exhibition
Inited Jewish Appeal recently an-
bunced that it has signed an
rreement with the Polish
overnment to provide for a two-
nationwide tour of Holocaust
tifacts and other documents
nder UJA auspices.
I The agreement, which was a
Lajor goal of UJA National Chair-
Ian Alex Grass, was achieved in
bsociation with the World Jewish
sngress and provides for a tour
materials from the Auschwitz
ate Museum.
JThe exhibition is called,
lAuschwitz: Crimes Against
lankind." It consists of 80 items
tch as suitcases, human hair,
ven parts and 135 photographic
inels. The exhibition was on
tsplay at the United Nations this
[inter in commemoration of
fuman Rights Day, and was seen
70,000 persons. The exhibition,
Fhich was organized in Poland by
lie Auschwitz State Museum and
he Internationa] Auschwitz Com-
mittee, tells the tragic story of the
Luschwitz death camp in Poland
rom 1940 until its liberation by
lllied troops in 1945.
I The agreement, however,
[presents two further advances
the ongoing UJA effort to en-
ire that the realities of the
Jolocaust are never forgotten so
to prevent the possibility of a
I "Unlike the exhibition as
psplayed at the UN," Grass said,
the display from now on will be
tcompanied by a catalog com-
letely revised for us in which the
folish government recognizes the
entrality of the Jewish tragedy in
ie Holocaust. That is, the Polish
svernment agrees that while
Jthers died in the Holocaust, it
[as an organized, methodical
[t me add, evil program to kill
the Jews in Europe. Six million
ews died including one million
lildren only for the fact that they
?ere Jewish.
"Second, this exhibition will be
rought to communities across
ie U.S., and placed in museums
rid other public areas so that all
Americans, Jews and non-Jews
specially those too young to
emember the Holocaust, will
low it really happened, that it
^as horrific and that it could
appen again."
'By sponsoring this exhibi-
|on," Grass added, "we are

Jewish suffering."
Grass added that in addition
many Americans would unders-
tand more about Israel and its im-
portance to all Jews when they
recognize that Israel rose from
the ashes of the Holocaust to
guarantee all Jews a home if they
need it.
Negotiations that led to the
agreement were supported by the
American Gathering of Holocaust
Survivors, the New York Jewish
Community Relations Council and
other groups. The UN Center for
Human Rights, which co-
sponsored the exhibition earlier
this year, will continue as sponsor
while it is on tour.

the fully revised catalog, educa-
tional and other materials to help
Americans understand what
Grass called "a fundamentally in-
comprehensivle scheme to
eliminate the Jewish people."

Israel's Population
Reaches 4.3 Million
Israel has a population of roughly
4.3 million, 82.3 percent Jewish,
according to figures released
recently by the Central Bureau of
Statistics as the nation began its
39th year of independence.
The population includes 3.5
million Jews; 580,000 Moslems;
102,000 Christians and 73,000
Druze and others. Non-Jews
represent 17.6 percent of the
population. But their birthrate is
growing by 2.7 percent annually
compared to 1.6 percent for the
Jewish population.
The population grew by about
700,000 over the past decade,
500,000 of whom are Jews. The
Jewish population doubled in the
last 20 years and since the
establishment of the State in 1948
has increased more than five fold.

Association of 110 Rabbis," Rabbi
Klein said. Having been a member
for almost ten years, I have par-
ticipated in its activities and serv-
ed for the past two years as its
"What shall be my objectives
and aims? One I intend to
develop a program to forge the
membership into a strong bond of
common interest in our communal
goals. Two I will stress rabbinic
input into communal affairs such
as UJA, Bonds for Israel, Jewish
education, and attempt to
stimulate the interest of the unaf-
filiated in joining synagogues and
"Three I will create programs
and hold joint meetings between
the Jewish community and its
counterpart, our non-Jewish
neighbors, to promote better
understanding and cooperation in
civic affairs and inter-religious
communication. Four as we are
not a political organization, we
shall try to be independent and
stand above the political texture
of American life.
"Five I see the State of Israel
as the fulfillment of Jewish hopes
and prayers, the support of which
will receive my deepest concern in
lending full-hearted attention to
its struggle for economic vitality
and political security, as we raise
our voices against those forces
who by terror and violence design
to destroy the peace and security
of Israel. Six like my
predecessors, I shall join with my
colleagues against the forces of ill
will, the cults who prey on the
young and old in their missionary

Rabbi Carl Klein
endeavors, and shall promote an
educational program to make both
the Jewish and Christian com-
munities aware of the harm they
do to the established religious

impossible to learn Hebrew, but
also impossible for a Jewish child
to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Soviet Jewry Action Plan Being Formulate
American Jewish community's ef-
forts to mount an intensive public
campaign in behalf of Soviet
Jewry this year, when Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev visits
the United States, were discussed
at recent meetings in Detroit and
They were part of a series of
regional conferences on Soviet
Jewry and Summit II sponsored
by local groups, with the coopera-
tion of the National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory Coun-
cil (NJCRAC) and the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
The conferences are a compo-
nent of a national campaign for
Soviet Jewry, coordinated by the
NCSJ, which is intended to ensure
that the issue is in the forefront of
the agenda when President
Reagan meets with Gorbachev at
the White House. The national ef-
fort is headed by honorary chair-
ir.nji Elie Wiesel.
The Hartford gathering,
organized by the Greater Hart-
ford Jewish Federation Communi-
ty Relations Committee, featured
an apperance by Alexander
Slepak, the son of long-time
Soviet Jewish refuseniks Vladimir
and Masha Slepak of Moscow
Slepak, who is studying medicine
at Temple University in
Philadelphia, spoke soon after see-
ing his father appear in a film clip
used in a new videotape on Soviet
Jewry dedicated to Anatoly
In a moving reference to his
father, Alexander said, "I want
him out. I want him next to
Shcharansky. They started their
struggle together, they have to
finish together." The videotape,
entitled, "Shcharansky: The
Struggle Continues," was produc-
ed by the United Jewish Appeal
for the NCSJ, and was given its
first pubic viewing at the
Slepak noted that gatherings
like these bring hope to Soviet
Jews in his homeland. "I am free
now because you fought for so
long, and brought up our case at
international meetings. Please
keep working for the Slepak fami-
ly and the thousands of other
The reasons the Soviets might
find it in their interest to free
Soviet Jewry were explored by
keynote speaker Dr. Robert
Freedman, dean of the Graduate
School of Baltimore Hebrew Col-
lege. He noted that last year the
Soviets sent signals about the
possible resumption of diplomatic
ties with Israel and the possible
renewal of the Jewish emigration
movement when they feared suc-
cess for the Middle East peace
process. Now, however, Middle
East peace is on hold and
U.S.-Soviet relations are more
"And now that they want trade
and technology from the United
States we have leverage again for
Soviet Jewry before the Summit,"
Freedman said. "President
Reagan must be able to point
through the window of the White
House during the Summit and say
'the American people do care
about Soviet Jewry'."
The conference in Detroit
featured appearance by two
Michigan Congressmen, both of
whom had visited the Soviet
Union. Rep. Sander Levin (D.)
who met with refuseniks during a
trip to the Soviet Union last year,
read from a letter to him by Lev
Shapiro of Leningrad asking for
his help in emigrating. The letter
was brought out by his colleague
Rep. William Broomfield (R.), who
had just returned from a trip to
the Soviet Union.
Broomfield met with Gorbachev
and said he believed that "we may
be close to a breakthrough on the
question of freedom for Soviet
Jew." Broomfield, the ranking
Republican on the House Foreign
Affair? Committee, travelled to
the Soviet Union with the commit-
tee's chairman, Florida

Traveling to Israel...?
Let's Deal With Facts!!!
FACT 1: A million and a half visitors travel to Israel annually
435,000 American in 1985.
FACT 2: Never in the history of Israel have Americans ever
been evacuated. Israel is recognized as a safe and recommended
place to visit by the State Department.
FACT 3: None of the current terrorist events have taken place
in Israel. The fact of the matter is Israel has never been as calm
and relaxing as now!
FACT 4: Every single area, city, and street is highly recom-
mended to visitors and citizens alike to walk day or night. Can you
say the same about downtown Los Angeles?
FACT 5: We do admit, our intentions and efforts to make our
airport, country, and streets safe were primarily for the benefit of
our own citizens, but they also allow foreign tourists to take ad-
vantage and enjoy the secure atmosphere as well.
FACT 6: The reputation of our outstanding security measures
in our airlines and airport goes back a long time, and has not
recently been escalated because of the world situation it's
always like this.
FACT 7: In the past 15 years there has never been a hijacking
or major incidence on any airline flying directly to Israel.
But the best evidence I can offer you that Israel is exciting,
beautiful, and SAFE is the FACT that 40 percent of the visitors
to Israel will return within the first year.
