Peres: We
Know Nothing
Of Contra Aid
Alleged war criminal John Demjanjuk told a
Jerusalem court at the opening of his trial last
week that he was not the sadistic Nazi guard
responsible for the death of hundreds
thousands of Jews in World War II.

Demjanjuk's Lawyer:
You Absolutely Have the Wrong Man
The trial of alleged Nazi war
criminal John Demjanjuk
was formally opened in
Jerusalem District Court
last Wednesday (Nov. 26)
and, after a 40 minute hear-
ing, was adjourned until
Jan. 19.
Hie Ukrainian-born former resi-
dent of Cleveland, Ohio is charged
with responsibility for the deaths
of tens of thousands of Jews and
others at the Treblinka death
camp during World War II where
he is alleged to have served as a
guard, known to inmates as "Ivan
the Terrible," because of his un-
mitigated brutality. According to
the charges, he personally
operated the gas chambers.
AT THE hearing, Demjanjuk
and his American lawyer, Mark
O'Connor, repeated the defense
contention of mistaken identity.
"I am not Ivan the Terrible whom
they want to hang," a visibly ner-
vous Demjanjuk told the court.
The official charges against the
accused are war crimes, crimes
against humanity and crimes
against persecuted people. Asked
how his client pleaded, O'Connor
said "We cannot deny that such
terrible things were done in the
camps, and we would therefore be

statement released here, shortly
after midnight last Wednesday,
local time, differed in several par-
ticulars from the statements made
several hours earlier by U.S. At-
torney General Edwin Meese at a
White House press conference.
Meese said that some $10-130
million of the money Iran paid for
arms received from the U.S. were
deposited by 'representatives of
Israel" in Swiss bank accounts set
up by the Contras. He said the
money was the amount Iran paid

Bonn Expels Five Syrians, Berlin Judge Sentences Two
BONN (JTA) The West
German government last Thurs-
day, (Nov. 27), ordered the expul-
sion of five Syrian diplomats,
froze economic aid to Syria and
said that its Ambassador's post in
Damascus will remain vacant. The
sanctions remained short,
however, of an outright break in
diplomatic relations.
A government spokesman,
Friedhelm Ost, said the court's
findings in the trial of two Palesti-
nians sentenced last Wednesday
for bombing the German-Arab
Friendship Society in West Berlin
last March clearly indicated that
Syria had "violated the basic rules

A U.S. spokesman for the
American, British and French
commanders who nominally exer-
cise occupation authority over the
western part of the divided city
said that an unspecified number of
Syrians stationed in East Berlin
will be banned from the western
part of the city.
A West Berlin judge last
Wednesday sentenced Ahmed
Hasi, 35, to 14 years' imprison-
ment, and Farouk Salameh, 40,
received a 13-year sentence. Hasi
is the brother of Nezar Hindawi
who was convicted in a London
court in October and sentenced to
45 years in prison for attempting
to smuggle explosives aboard an
El Al airliner at Heathrow Air-
port last April 17.
Presiding Judge Hans Joachim
Heinze issued a warrant for the
arrest of Haythem Saed, a senior
Syrian Air Force intelligence of-
ficer, after finding evidence of
Syrian complicity in the bombing.
The evidence was based on the
pre-trial confessions of the two
defendants. Saed, also known as
Abu Ahmed, was implicated at
Hindawi's trial. The Syrian con-
nection with the attempt to blow
up the Israeli airliner led Britain
to break diplomatic relations with

How Israel Was
Tied to Arms Flow
Some $10-$30 million of
the money Iran paid for
arms received from the
United States were
deposited by "represen-
tatives of Israel" in Swiss
bank accounts set up by the
Contras, the forces fighting
the Sandinista government
in Nicaragua, Attorney
General Edwin Meese
revealed last week.
Meese said the money was the
amount Iran paid over the $12
million cost of the weapons which
were transferred from the
Department of Defense.
at the White House after Presi-
dent Reagan announced that Vice
Admiral John Poindexter, his Na-
tional Security Adviser, asked
that he be allowed to return to the
Navy and that Marine Corps Lt.
Col. Oliver North has been fired
from the National Security Coun-
cil staff.
Meese said that North, who was
involved in the secret negotiations
with Iran, knew of the funds
transfer from the beginning and
that Poindexter knew of it
"generally" but not its details.
The President did not know
anything about it until he was in-
formed by Meese, according to the
Attorney General. He said it was
discovered when the Justice
Department went over the
documents of the Iranian negotia-
tions and found some
HE SAID no other U.S. official
knew about the fund transfer,
although Robert McFarland, the
former National Security Adviser
who conducted the secret negotia-
tions with Iran, found out about it
last spring.
He said the negotiations on the
cost of the arms were conducted
by representatives of Israel and
Iran with no Americans present.
During the course of his brief-
ing, Meese confirmed for the first
time publicly Israel's participation
in the negotiations with Iran. He
said the negotiations were sug-
gested by Israel, and "all the
shipments in which the United
States was involved were made
through Israel." He maintained
this did not violate any U.S. law.
Meese said Israel made two
shipments of arms to Iran on its
own, one in August or September,
1986 and one in November, 1985.
The second shipment was sent
back by Iran. The U.S. "condon-
ed" both shipments after the fact,
Meese said.
he has repeatedly said, "I believe
our policy goals toward Iran were
well-founded. However, the infor-
mation brought to my attention
yesterday (Nov. 22) convinced me
that in one aspect, implementa-
tion of that policy was seriously
The President left before Meese
explained what the flaw was. The
Attorney General said that the
transfer of funds took place this
year before the current fiscal year
began Oct. 1 at a time when Con-
gress had not authorized any
funds for the Contras to be used
for military supplies. Meese said
his investigation is continuing as
to whether any laws were

appoint a special review board to
study the role and procedures of
the National Security Council. No

Jews Were Targeted
When Hungarians Staged Rebellion
Thirty years ago, on
November 4, 1956, some
200,000 Hungarians began
"LISTEN TO ME, Rakosi. We

Hungary, apart from its own
rulers, Turkish sultans, Austrian
emperors, Tartar khans, and
Polish princes. But, as far as we

Soviet tanks smashed the
13-day revolution against
Stalinist oppression. No
fewer than 20,000 of the
refugees were Jews,
representing about a fifth of
the Hungarian Jews who
had survived the Nazi
Holocaust a decade earlier.
Paradoxically, though, many of
those against whom the revolution
was directed were themselves
Jews. Matyas Rakosi, Hungary's
tyrannical dictator, was one of a
Jewish foursome who ran its af-
fairs. His colleagues were Erno
Gero, the economic overlord;
Mihaly Farkas, in charge of
security; and Jozsef Revai, the
chief cultural commissar.
NINE OF the 25 members of
the Hungarian Communist
Party's first Central Committee
were Jews, most of whom had
spent the war in Moscow and
reentered Hungary in the wake of
the victorious Red Army.
The hated political police,
against whom the revolution
vented much of its wrath, was
commanded by Gabor Peter, a
former tailor, and included many
other Jews among its
It was these people who had
staged the Stalinist show trials in
Hungary. But in the Hungarian
trials, anti-Zionism did not
assume as much central impor-
tance as, for example, in
Czechoslovakia, where it was used
to incriminate many Jewish Com-
munists who had, in fact, been
fierce anti-Zionists.
Yet even in Hungary, the
Jewish issue was never far in the
background. When the Kremlin
was urging the unpopular Rakosi
to step down prior to the revolu-
tion, Lavrenti Beria, the Soviet
security boss, told him:

Revisionism To
Nebraska businessman was
unable to add "revisionist" in-
fluences to a Holocaust con-
ference held earlier this month at
the University of Nebraska at Lin-
coln, the Jewish Press of Omaha
William Curry of Columbus,
Neb., had sent two checks to the
university: $1,000 to place a full-
page ad doubting the existence of
the Holocaust in the Daily
Nebraskan student newspaper;
and $5,000 to pay for like-minded
The newspapers had planned to
run the ad, but reversed its deci-
sion after a presentation on revi-
sionism by Jeffrey Santis, ex-
ecutive director of the Anti-
Defamation League/Community
Relations Council, and two Lin-
coln residents.
Wrote Daily Nebraskan stafi
member Todd von Kampen in a
column preceding the conference:

now and then to remind ourselves
that (the Holocaust) is a cold, hard
fact and to guard against those

Nation Wants Reagan To Come Clean
The nation is bending backward not to ex-
perience another Watergate and another
failed presidency. They want President
Reagan to own up to his role in the scandal,
to clean house and to get on with America's
affairs. Mr. Reagan has such an overwhelm-
ing margin of admiration among the people
of the country that they prefer to overlook
some of his "top secret handling of the Iran
For the moment, Mr. Reagan is dead set
against owning up to anything. From his
point of view, ne has done nothing wrong,
and he doesn't quite see what everyone who
has criticized him thus far, Republicans and
Democrats, all of whom over the Thanksgiv-
ing weekend he labeled "sharks" out for his
"blood," appear to be upset about.
But in due time, the President will have to
acknowledge what he still persists does not
exist wrongdoing, the bending of laws,
the flouting of Congressional powers he
frankly usurped.
Agony in Israel
As we said in these columns last week, the
odd thing is that a similar agony is being ex-
perienced in the highest echelons in Israel.
There, former Prime Minister Shimon Peres
is under fire. A loyal ally, he has stoutly
defended Mr. Reagan as a courageous
leader who did whatever was necessary to
bring American hostages out of Lebanon.
In his defense, Mr. Peres reminded Israel
of that country's deal last year with terrorist
groups a massive exchange of some 1,100
Arabs in Israeli prisons for a handful of
Israeli "prisoners of war" held in Arab
hands. In Mr. Reagan's dealing with Iran, he
said, there was no difference.
Fighting against terrorists and terrorism,
he said, can never mean that the lives of
fellow countrymen capable of being saved
should be sacrificed on the altar of the stern
principle of no deals ever.
Scapegoat Needed
Mr. Peres' circuitous reasoning apart, the
fact remains that the Reagan Administra-
tion's investigation of what occurred now
seems to be turning ominously toward a
clear impulse to pillory Israel. There are, ad-
mittedly, two parts to the Iranian fiasco.
One involves Israel as an agent for
American interests going beyond the
country's call of duty to do a favor for its
American friends.
Exalted though this sounds in these
terms, there is the more sordid business of
Israeli arms sales to Iran going as far back
(as we know now) to 1981. And so it was
"doing what comes naturally" when Israel
volunteered its services in Mr. Reagan's
covert attempt to trade weapons for
American hostages, including the recent
Nicholas Daniloff case.
The second part of all of this has to do with
what happened to the money that Israel
transferred into a Swiss back account after
the consummation of the deals, with the
U.S. as ultimate account-holder. The latest,
wildest revelations have had to do with at
least part of these funds in turn being
transferred to the contra rebels in
Nicaragua. It is these revelations that pro-
duced the firing of Admiral John Poindexter
and a National Security aide, Oliver North.
ol South Btowird
President Reagan swears he knew nothing
about any of this. The Israelis swear the
same. But American investigators have snif-
fed out the names of prominent arms dealers
in Israel, including the 1948 War of In-
dependence hero, Al Schwimmer, more
recently of Israel Aircraft Industries. He
and others are said to have personally pro-
fited handsomely on the U.S. arms deals to
Iran with Israel as intermediary.
What Israel Must Do
If this is true, then Israel finds itself
precisely in the same place that President
Reagan occupies in the United States. Top
government officials in both countries deny
that they knew what others in this complex
chain of events may have been doing for dif-
ferent reasons. The contra allegation ousted
Poindexter and North.
The alleged charge against Schwimmer
and others in Israel is of a different order
these were not public officials. Still, public
officials responsible for the highly secret ac-
tivities entered into with theUnited States
should have known what everybody in the
chain was doing. They say they did not.
In the end, while the people of the United
States seem prepared to overlook Mr.
Reagan's role in all of this, their search for a
scapegoat at least for the moment appears
to be focusing on Israel and the alleged pro-
fit of a few Israelis at the expense of the
American agony. This is bad business
Already, U.S. Sen. Christopher Dod has
spoken out against this, declaring that he
will not permit the pillorying of Israel.
But the public relations impact here can
become a disaster of some considerable size
nonetheless. Needed is that Israel should
turn its attention toward these alleged pro-
fiteers and deal with them as sternly as the
United States intends to deal with those in
the Reagan Administration who have not
only once again "misspoke," but this time
also misbehaved.

Israeli society is at a turning
point where its fate is hang-
ing in the balance. It can
descend into European-style
fascism if the present ten-
sions and divisiveness con-
tinue to fester, or it can
become a truly democratic
society if the Zionist ideals
of the nation's founders are
Knesset member Shulamit
Aloni, leader of the Civil Rights
Movement (CRM), who expressed
this view, does not mince words.
For more than 20 years she has
been in the forefront of the fight
for civil rights and a free
democratic, pluralistic society
devoid of religious constraints and
nationalist extremism. But now
she says, actually warns, that
Israel will not be able to survive if
it is not a just and democratic
"A LOT depends on whatever
happens in the Labor Party,"
Aloni asserted in an interview
here. "There are forces in Labor
that pull the party to the extreme
right and toward the politics of
the mob. The Labor Party must
veer away from populism and stop
being apologetic .. (T)he Israeli
public is ripe for that."
Aloni, who was in New York to
attend a conference at the United
Nations on international
economy, said that her own party
is likely to increase its representa-
tion in the Knesset in the next
election from its present four
members to six. "We will be ready
to support those elements in
Labor that shun the influence of
the right, the sober elements,"
she said.
According to Aloni, the seeds of
fascism in Israel have been grow-
ing steadily in the last decade,
especially since the Likud and its
leader, Menachem Begin, came to
power in 1977. "Israeli society is
now divided between an irra-
tional, nationalistic, religious
right, with messianic racist at-
titudes toward the Arabs, and an
extreme, anti-Zionist left that
blames Israel for all evils," she ex-
plained. "In the middle are the
Likud and Labor, with the rightist
elements in the Likud and the lef-
tist elements in Labor pulling to
the extreme fringes."
treme right as the Kach and
Tehiya Parties and the Gush
Emunim movement, and the ex-
treme left as the Hadash (Com-
munist) Party and the Progressive
List for Peace.
Aloni sharply criticized the role
of American Jewry in influencing
events in Israel. Her criticism was
especially directed at the liberal
and progressive elements of
American Jewry who have lost
hope that Israel can become a pro-
gressive nation and say that they
are "fed up with Israel." Instead
of taking this negative approach,
these Jews should come forward
and raise their voices about
whatever is wrong with Israeli
society, she argued.
"American Jews should stop
viewing Israel as the Church or
the Vatican of the Jewish people,"
she declared. "They must unders-
tand that in order to survive,
Israel must be a pluralistic socie-
ty, with freedom of expression
and freedom of assembly and the
due process of law. If American
Jews view Israel as their Vatican,
then forget about democracy."
also critical of the American
Jewish leadership. "I don't know
who elected them as leaders of
American Jews," she said. "They
are happy to come to Israel and
rub elbows with important people.
They're supporting Israel, and
I'm for it, but they should raise
their voices and denounce
discrimination against minorities
and religious coercion in Israel,
and support the underwriting of a
constitution and a bill of rights in
Aloni asserted that religious
coercion in Israel is a major deter-
rence to Reform and Conservative
American Jews who want to come
and live in Israel. "Moreover,"
she said, "why should Russian
Jews want to come to Israel?
Many of them are mixed couples
who will not be recognized as
Jews by Israel's Orthodox rabbis.
Their children will not be able to
marry Jews, and they will be iden-
tified in official documents as
A lawyer by profession, Aloni
has been using her expertise to
fight the religious establishment
in Israel by creating new alter-
natives for those who do not want
to use the religious authorities in
matters such as marriage and
divorce. "As a result of the cruel-
ty and extremism of the rabbinical
courts in Israel, many Israelis
have lately decided to ignore the
religious establishment," she said.
ACCORDING TO Aloni, hun-
dreds of Israelis, including her
own son Udi, have recently mar-
ried by signing "marriage
covenants under the law of con-
tracts." Many could be married by
the rabbinical courts, but out of
conviction and protest against
religious coercion couples have
elected to be married by a lawyer
rather than a rabbi, she said.
For many in Israel, Aloni is an
admired leader. Many others,
however, especially those in the
religious establishment and the
right, view here as an "enemy."
For years, Aloni has been fighting
religious intolerance. In recent
years, she has become a victim of
that phenomenon.
"I have been getting a lot of
threatening letters and telephone
calls," Aloni disclosed. "I have
been threatened with mutilation
and rape. Maybe because I am a
woman, many of the letters in-
clude sexual references and
curses. People call my home in the
middle of the night, warning me
and my family.
"AM I afraid? Maybe, some
times. But I am not going to stop,
I am not going to give up. I am op-
timistic. I believe there is a vitali-
ty in Israeli society, a desire to be
better, because otherwise we will
be destroyed."

On Arms Deals
Premier Yitzhak Shamir declined
to comment Monday on reports
that Israel sold arms to Iran. At
the same time, he told the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee that the mat-
ter of former nuclear technician
Mordechai Vanunu's disap-
pearance from London Oct. 1 has
been cleared up with Britain and
the misunderstanding has been
laid to rest. His statement was
substantiated by Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres.
Shamir told the committee it
was the government's prerogative
to be silent on the alleged Iranian
arms shipments which was not an
issue for public debate.
President Reagan acknowledg-
ed last week that the U.S. had
sent very small quantities of arms
to Iran in an effort to improve
relations with the country.

support for "action, not words"
for Jews and the Jewish
homeland. "You have to be on the
side of the State of Israel and
wherever Jews are persecuted,"
Klarsfeld declared.
Edgar Bronfman, president of
the WJCongress in praising
Klarsfeld at the meeting, also ex-
plained the role of his organiza-
tion's campaign to expose
Waldheim's Nazi past. He
answered the question he said he
has been asked frequently, "Why
did you do what you did?" regar-
ding Waldheim, by saying "There
is a moral imperative here."
Bronfman drew a parallel bet-
ween-the relentless campaign of
the WJCongress for facts about
Waldheim's wartime activities
and the Jewish directive to
remember and retell, as ex-
emplified by the Passover
"THE HAGGADAH enjoins us
to tell the story of the Exodus
from generation to generation,
world without end. We have
before us the greatest example of
man's inhumanity to man and
I suggested that his, too, should
be passed on from generation to
generation. I am convinced that
what we did for the Waldheim
story was exactly that: to keep
telling the story from generation
to generation." The Waldheim af-
fair, he added, "cannot be swept
under the rug."
Bronfman described Klarsfeld
as "one of the great ladies of all
time." He said her role "is not so
much punishment for the guilty as
making sure that this doesn't hap-
pen again. To feel as deeply as she
did about the great injustice that
was done" is a historical contribu-
tion to justice.
The WJCongress meeting
followed elections to its American
Section. Rabbi Wolfe Kelman was
named chairman, succeeding
Frieda Lewis, who was honored
for her service; and Menachem
Rosensaft was named chairman of
the executive committee. Kalman

dent, presented Klarsfeld with a

Polish Gov't. Aims To Restore
Dying Vestiges of Jewish Culture

and Jewish leaders have begun
preparations for the massive 45th
anniversary observances in 1988
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in
1943. This was disclosed by Stefan
Grayek, president of the World
Federation of Polish Jews and
himself a Warsaw Ghetto sur-
vivor. Grayek, who is now an
Israeli citizen and frequently
visits his homeland, played a ma-
jor role in the 40th anniversary
ceremonies in Warsaw in 1983.
Grayek said that plans for the
1988 ceremonies are now well
under way and that the events will
evoke a strong and universal
response. He also noted that par-
ticipation by Jewish delegates
from all over the world is ex-
pected to substantially exceed the
1983 attendance and that Israel is
expected to be totally supportive
of the ceremonies.
were confirmed by Zbigniew
linger, head of the Congress
Department of Orbis, the Polish
National Tourist Office. An af-
fable and capable official, linger
had done a noteworthy job in
organizing the two-week program
three years ago and is quietly en-
thusiastic about prospects for the
45th anniversary.
There have been no formal rela-
tions between Poland and Israel
since the Six-Day War, but mutual
friendship exists. Groups of
Israelis in substantial numbers ar-
rive every other week to tour
Warsaw, Cracow and other cities
and to make poignant pilgrimages
to the former concentration
At the same time, the Polish
government has decided to under-
take an exchange of "represen-
tatives of mutual interests."
Three Polish officials were sent to
Tel Aviv in September to handle
visas and consular duties and com-
mercial and cultural matters. And
their Israeli counterparts, in turn,
arrived in Warsaw to reopen the
Israel Embassy building closed
since 1967.
GRAYEK WAS optimistic
about this turn of events. "I've
long prayed for this moment," he
said, "and I deem it an important
step on the road to full diplomatic
relations in my lifetime."
A heartening factor is the ap-
parent decrease of PLO influence
in Poland since this reporter's last
visit in 1983. The Arabs living in
Warsaw are from Libya, Iraq and
Lebanon, but the number permit-
ted entrance has been curtailed,
especially the corps of Arab
students who three years ago
seemed to be everywhere and are
now much less in evidence.
"There are only 1,890 Poles
listed as observant Jews in the en-
tire country, with perhaps four or
five times that number who rare-
ly, if ever, enter a synagogue"
said Michael Bialkowics, director
of the Jewish Religious Union in
Warsaw. This is a far cry from the
3.5 million before World War II.
And yet, the Polish government
seems intent on preserving the
vestiges, and on restoring the
desecrated places, symbols and
monuments of an annihilated peo-

The small courtroom was filled
mainly with Justice Ministry of-
ficials and the media. The prisoner
spoke in his native Ukrainian,

client was unfit to stand trial at
this time because of an injury sus-
tained when the prison van skidd-
ed on the way from Ramie prison
to Jerusalem, was rejected by
court President Judge Dov Levin.
He said he was willing to hear
Demjanjuk's complaint in his
private chambers but would not
admit it to the trial proceedings.
Another complaint, voiced by
O'Connor, was that he has been
forced to appear in court without
the assistance of an Israeli lawyer.
He underscored this by apologiz-
ing repeatedly for his "imperfect
knowledge of Israeli law."
O'Connor was given special
dispensation by the Justice
Ministry several months ago to
plead in Israeli courts. An Israeli
lawyer was to be appointed to
assist him on points of law.
O'CONNOR TOLD reporters
after the hearing that he had
spoken to six attorneys referred
to him by the Israel Bar Associa-
tion but none was prepared to
give his time, "a year or year-and
a-half," according to O'Connor, to
serve at the trial.
"Certainly, I cannot pay the
fees of Israeli lawyers who have
asked for $400,000 or $600,000
fees," O'Connor said.

his U.S. citizenship in 1981 for ly-

suspect extradited to Israel and

since Adolf Eichmann who was
executed in 1962.

Trade Rep Says:
'People Won't Knock on Your Door'
Clayton Yeuter, the
United States Trade
Representative, believes
that if Israel wants to in-
crease its exports it must
find "market niches" for
itself as has South Korea
and Taiwan.
The challenge for Israeli firms is
to "find a niche that's a profitable
one and one in which they can
meet the competition, where
they'll not be overwhelmed by the
much larger firms that exist in the
United States or elsewhere," he
told reporters at a press con-
ference in his office.
20 from Israel where he spent a
week discussing the Free Trade
Agreement between the U.S. and
Israel which was signed
September 1, 1985. This first an-
nual consultation on the FTA,
which will alternate between
Jerusalem and Washington, was
held with Trade and Industry
Minister Ariel Sharon. He also
met with other officials, including
Premier Yitzhak Shamir and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres.
"Israeli exporters have not been
as aggressive as those in certain
Asian countries like Korea and
Taiwan," Yeuter said. He said he
advised the Israelis that "There's
a competitive world out there. The
market isn't going to come to
them. People aren't going to
knock on the doors in Tel Aviv
saying 'please sell me something.'
The Israeli exporters are going to
have to be out beating the bushes
and knocking on doors in the
market places of the world."
But Yeuter believes Israel can
do it. He said that Israel has
"sophisticated people, well-
educated" and a "skilled labor
force." However, he noted that
since Israeli wages are higher
than in Korea and Taiwan it can
not compete in labor intensive
products. Instead, it should seek
to export "relatively high tech,
sophisticated products," he said.
THE U.S.-ISRAEL Free Trade
Agreement calls for a series of
elimination and reduction of
tariffs between the two countries
by 1995. Yeuter said it is too early
to make an assessment of the
agreement's success but he
believes it can have only a positive
effect since "once trade barriers
are reduced trade expands."
"Israel will be the greater
beneficiary" of the agreement
because the smaller trading part-
ner always benefits more, Yeuter
said. But he stressed the U.S. also
benefits. "To the degree that
Israel becomes a larger winner
than the United States, that's
fine, as long as we are both win-
ners," he said.
In 1985, Israel for the first time
exported more to the U.S. than it
imported. It exported $2.2 billion
to the U.S. and imported $1.8
billion. For the first sue months of
1986 Israel exported $1.2 billion
and imported $896 million.
One of the questions I'm always
asked is: "Why do you choose lo
play Klezmer music''" The answer
is simple. Klezmer music is pan of
my musical inheritance. Klezmer
touches deep and profound feelings
relating to my heritage.
Other Jewish people who hear it
experience the same feelings. It
touches them in ways no other music
does. Which is why I play Klezmer
music-to serve the community by
playing music that brings together

Zionism today.
It all started with a dream...
Zionism emerged from the deep yearning of a
people to return to their Biblical homeland. A people,
dispersed by time and terror, seeking a new national
movement incorporating aspirations so often
challenged by pogroms and torturous times.
It was these aspirations for freedom that were so
similar to those that gave birth to America. And their
fulfillment was the creation of the State of Israel, in
a way that resonates strongly in the hearts of all
Americans. And in the million who have joined
the Zionist Movement.
Is the Zionist Movement
the way?
Without an organized movement in
which Jews are publicly identified, there
can be no democratic action. Not for
peace, nor for the many monumental
accomplishments of recent years.
The resettlement in Israel of
1,800,000 immigrants from over
100 countries. The vast educa-
tional program for many
hundreds of thousands of
youngsters in Israel and in

tiation of the struggle to
rescue Soviet Jewry,
Ethiopian Jewry, and
Jews in peril through-
out the globe.
You can continue this endeavor as part of a mean-
ingful American Jewish community by lending voice
to the Zionist Movement. By standing up and being
counted. This is the American way. the way for the

'End Collaboration'
General Assembly Condemns
Israel's Ties to South Africa
(JTA) The General
Assembly has condemned
by a large margin Israel's
"increasing collaboration
with the racist regime of
South Africa" and demand-
ed that Israel terminate "all
forms of collaboration" with
the Pretoria government.
The vote last week was 102-29
with 26 abstentions. The anti-
Israeli vote, singling Israel out for
alleged military and economic
cooperation with the apartheid
government of South Africa, was
one of eight resolutions condemn-
ing all aspects of South Africa's
apartheid policies.
ISRAEL IS singled out for con-
demnation on this issue by the

Health Minister Shoshana Arbeli-
Almoslino welcomed the Chief
Rabbinate Council's ruling that
heart transplant operations are
permissible under certain condi-
tions according to religious law.
A leading heart surgeon com-

means that Israel is now among
the world's enlightened countries.
The Hadassah Medical Center
here announced preparations for
the first heart transplant surgery.
The hospital indicated that it is
fully qualified and equipped for
the procedure but had delayed on-
ly because it wanted to comply
with rabbinical directives.
THE CHIEF Rabbinate ruling
came after weeks of discussion
between the 12-man Rabbinate
Council and a panel of doctors.
The issue was the definition of
death, as applied to the donor of
the heart or other vital organs.
Many rabbis had long insisted
that death occurs only when the
heart stops beating, regardless of
the fact that hearts can be kept
beating by artificial means after
the brain ceases to function. Now
apparently the Chief Rabbinate
accepts the medical definition of
death, which is death of the brain.
Shlomo Goren, the former
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi, said in an
article published in the Jerusalem
Post, that death occurs when the
part of the brain responsible for
breathing has ceased to function
for a minimum of seven minutes.

that Israel's ties with South
Africa constitute "a serious threat
to the international action for the

West European countries, joined
Israel in voting against the resolu-
tion. Israeli diplomats noted that
last year only 19 countries joined
Israel against a similar resolution,
while this year 28 countries sup-
ported Israel.
The anti-Israeli vote was sharp-
ly condemned by Ambassador
Meir Joffe of the Israel Mission,
who blamed the Arabs and their
suporters for "hypocrisy." He
said that while the Arabs
themselves trade with South
Africa, they push for the condem-
nation of Israel. "This is part of
their political war against the
Jewish State," he declared.
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, charged
at the opening debate on apar-
theid recently that the General
Assembly is guilty of "omission
and distortion of the facts" both
of Israel's alleged cooperation
with Pretoria and the extent of
the Arab oil trade with South
NETANYAHU disclosed that
Israel recently sent an official let-
ter to the UN Special Committee
Against Apartheid, reiterating its
opposition to apartheid and
declaring its willingness to par-
ticipate in international efforts to
end the practice of apartheid in
South Africa.
The anti-Israel vote coincided
with the 11th anniversary of the
General Assembly resolution
equating Zionism with racism.
One of the arguments the Arabs
used, when they pushed for the
adoption of the Zionism-equals-
racism resolution, was that Israel
was a major supporter of South
Africa's apartheid government.

County Main Library's newest
work of art will be celebrated with
a reception for the artist at 7 p.m.,

The public is invited to meet
Yaacov Agam, internationally ac-
claimed artist, during the dedica-
tion of his work "Color and
Rhythm, a Visual Orchestration."
The piece exemplifies Agam's
"kinetic" approach to art, by
which he allows the viewer to ac-
tively experience the formation of
art through changes in physical
On a surface of triangular
aluminum segments, the multi-
colored images of the wall relief
appear to change as the viewer
moves. The sculpture also il-
lustrates Agam's concept of reali-
ty as a constant "becoming,"
rather than a limited statement.
The sculpture, measuring ap-
proximately 28'x4', is on exhibit
on the first floor of the library.
"Color and Rhythm" was
selected by the county's Art in
Public Places Board, which con-
sidered proposals from 204 artists
tor the library commission.
Agam, who studied at the
Besalel School of Art in
Jerusalem, is one of the
originators of the kinetic move-
ment in the arts and is an impor-
tant contemporary representative
of this school.
A resident of Paris, Agam is a
native of Israel.

Peres Vows
Gov't. Knew Nothing of Funds Shunted to Contras
Continued from Page 1
over the $12 million cost of the
weapons, which were transferred
from the Department of Defense.
Meese referred several times to
"representatives of Israel" in that
connection and promptly cor-
rected himself after referring
once to "representatives of the
Israel government"
Peres, who was Prime Minister
when the transactions with Iran
occurred, addressed the Knesset
in response to seven urgent agen-
da motions on the issue, severely
critical of the government.
Several were introduced by leftist
factions, which were the most
vociferous in their condemnation.
But there was strong criticism as
well from Labor and Likud MKs.
Only Yuval Neeman, leader of the
ultra-nationalist Tehiya Party un-
conditionally supported the
government's position.
FLAYING HIS critics as
"hypocrites ... who presume to
speak in the name of a lofty
morality," Peres strongly defend-
ed the Reagan Administration's
objectives which, according to
Meese, were to end the Iran-Iraq
war, reduce Iranian support of
terrorism and free American
hostages held by pro-Iranian
groups in Lebanon.
"In life," Peres said, "there are
often agonizing conflicts and con-
tradictions between equally press-
ing moral claims," and in the Iran
affair, Israel acted "solely out of
moral consideration." He cited as
a parallel Israel's decision last
year to free 1,150 terrorists and
other security detainees in ex-
change for three Israel Defense
Force prisoners of war in the
hands of terrorists in Lebanon.
He said he had nothing but ad-
miration for President Reagan,
who "does not rest for one mo-
ment" in his efforts on behalf of
American hostages. "Israel was
asked to help secretly, and it was
glad to do so," Peres said. There
was no question of "American
pressure," he said.
HE DISMISSED the idea that
the arms Israel sent Iran at the
behest of "the friendly U.S. Ad-
ministration" could tilt the
balance in the Gulf war. The of-
ficial government statement
described them as "defensive
arms and spare parts." According
to Peres, $12 million worth of
arms was insignificant compared
to Iran's massive supplies from
other countries. China alone, he
said, sent Iran some $3 billion
Foreign Minister Peres
worth of military equipment.
Peres said he himself was "as
disgusted as anyone" by the
regime of the Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini in Tehran, which has
assailed Israel in the most violent
terms ever since it took power in
1979. At the same time, Peres
stressed that Israel has "no
obligation to Iraq" which he
charged has become "a center for
the PLO" and could send "dozens
of divisions" against Israel at any
time in the future.
Peres disclosed that he spoke to
U.S. Secretary of State George
Shultz by telephone last Tuesday
(Nov. 25) and also to Meese,
though he did not say when. He
observed that neither had accused
Israel of "intrigues in
Washington." He also insisted
that Israel had no pecuniary in-
terest in the arms deal. It did not
make "a single penny" and did
not act out of any self interest, he
MEESE SAID at his press con-
ference that "all shipments in
which the United States was in-
volved were made through
Israel." But he said Israel had
made two shipments of arms to
Iran on its own, one in August or
September, 1985 and one in
November, 1985. He said the U.S.
"condoned" both shipments after
the fact and that the second ship-
ment had been sent back by Iran.
He did not elaborate.
Peres defended the govern-
ment's failure to inform the
Knesset or even a subcommittee
of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee about the
arms shipments. He said he had
faced a clash between moral im-
peratives: democratic supervision
Case of Holocaust Revisionist
May Be Reactivated in Canada
Brunswick (JTA) The
case of Malcolm Ross, the
author of booklets alleging a
worldwide Jewish con-
spiracy and denying that the
Holocaust happened, may
*. be reactivated because of a
fresh complaint.
Dr. Julius Israeli, the original
plaintiff in the case, has lodged a
new complaint with New
Brunswick Attorney-General
David Clark, asking that Roes be
charged with promoting hatred
against Jews.
Israeli, an Orthodox Jew living
in Newcastle, about 100 miles
from here, argues Ross should be
charged with disseminating hate
propaganda, because of several
articles Ross published in local
newspapers in New Brunswick
IN ARTICLES published in the
Northumberland News and the
Miramichi Leader last month,
Ross writes why he published his
allegedly anti-Semitic books,
where the public can buy them,
and how he came upon his beliefs.
Israeli believes that it is enough
to reactivate hate charges against
Earlier this fall, Clark decided
not to charge Ross with pro-
moting hatred against Jews after
a year-long investigation by the
Moncton police force and the At-
torney General's office.
Clark explained that two of
Ross's books did not fall within
the definition of hate literature
and that a third probably did.
quickly decided to reconsider that
decision after several journalists
in New Brunswick were able to
get copies of the book, "Web of
Deceit," from local libraries. Only
a few days later, however, Clark
announced his original decision
not to charge Ross would stand.
of the executive and betrayal of an
ally's secret. Had it been Israel's
secret alone, it would have been
brought to the knowledge of
Knesset members, Peres said.
But the mood in the chamber
was angry. Haim Ramon, the
ranking Laborite in the Knesset
Finance Committee, castigated
the government's arms transfer
policy. He spoke of "the darkest
regimes in South America" as
Israel's customers for weapons
and noted that Israel was "still
selling arms to Somoza when the
Sandinistas were at the gates of
Managua." He was referring to
the late Gen. Anastasio Somoza-
Debayle, the Nicaraguan dictator,
ousted by the Sandinista-led
revolution in July, 1979.
YOSSI SARID of the Civil
Rights Movement (CRM) said that
by selling arms to Iran, Israel had
"given direct encouragement to
the most extreme element in the
Middle East" and it was "an en-
couragement of terrorism."
Elazar Granot of Mapan
demanded, "How do you know
that these arms have not reached
the Hezbullah?" a reference to the
pro-Khomeini Islamic terrorist
group in Lebanon.
Mordechai Virshubsky of Shinui
called the arms deal "a blow to the
good name of Israel and to its na-
tional security."
The post-midnight government
statement followed an urgent
meeting between Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, Peres, Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin and their aides last
Tuesday night (Nov. 25).
It was apparently decided that
Israel must respond to Meese's
allegations about its transfer of
funds to the Contras in time for
U.S. television prime time
The statement said: "Israel con-
firms that it helped transfer
defensive arms and spare parts
from the U.S. to Iran, this in
response to an American request.
The payment for this equipment
was transferred directly by an Ira-
nian representative to a Swiss
bank according to the instructions
of U.S. representatives. These
funds did not pass through Israel.
"The government of Israel was
surprised by the announcement to
the effect that part of these funds
were transferred to the Contras.
This matter is not connected at all
to Israel, and the Israeli govern-
ment had no knowledge of it. Ob-
viously Israel was not and is not
prepared to serve as a conduit for
such a transfer."
wondering whether Israel's denial
of a key part of Meese's statement
would heighten tensions between
Jerusalem and Washington. The
Reagan Administration, for the
moment, is embattled and on the
defensive and there is no knowing
what revelations may emerge in
the course of Congressional hear-
ings and the Justice Department's
own investigation of the arms
sales and transfer of monies to the
President Reagan, who address-
ed the press briefly before Meese,
admitted he had not been inform-
ed of "one aspect" of the im-
plementation of his arms sales
policy, which "was seriously flaw-
ed." He announced that his Na-
tional Security Adviser, Vice Ad-
miral John Poindexter, had
resigned and that his aide, Marine
Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North, has
been dismissed from the National
Security Council staff.
North, believed directly involv-
ed in support of the Contras and
of rebels seeking to topple the
Marxist government of Angola,
was a key figure in the Iran arms
deal and transfer of funds to the
Attorney General Meese

Alarming Divorce Rate
Orthodox Jews Are Studying, Doing Things About It
Orthodox Jews alarmed by the
increasing rate of divorce among
their co-religionists are both stu-
dying the problem and doing
something about it. In 1970, York
University sociologist Leo Davids
formed, with his brother-in-law,
Dr. Yehudi Shields, the Jewish
Marriage Education Committee in
Toronto. Committee members
lead a Jewish Marriage Prepara-
tion Course in various locations in
A roughly parallel recognition
of the problem and a program for
U.S. Orthodox Jewish marriages
was reported to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in a
telephone interview with Dr.
Jacob Wiener, a coordinator of a
Jewish Family Study group on
divorce. The study group was
formed about two years ago under
auspices of the Association of Or-
thodox Jewish Scientists, head-
quartered in Brooklyn.
Wiener, training manager in the
Department of Social Services of
New York City, said a report on
the findings of the AOJS commit-
tee would be completed and ready
for distribution in three or four
DAVIDS SAID that the Cana-
dian group at first emphasized en-
couraging husbands and wives in
deteriorating marriages to follow
the Jewish laws of family purity.
While emphasis on Taharat
Hamiahpocha remains, the course
has come to delve into other
aspects of marriage, such as
finances, communications and in-
law relationships. Wiener agreed
that counseling efforts could not
be restricted to a single element of
marriage, no matter how

Laureate for 1986, also expressed
concern that Israel might become
a scapegoat in the current crisis in
Washington. "Israel's name was
mentioned today (Nov. 25) too
many, much too many times,"
Wiesel noted, referring to the
events surrounding the resigna-
tion of Vice Admiral John
Poindexter as National Security
Adviser and a statement by At-
torney General Edwin Meese
charging that Israeli represen-
tatives deposited money paid by
Iran for arms in Swiss bank ac-
counts set up by the Contra rebels
in Nicaragua.
Wiesel presented in the course
of the dinner the Bonds' Interna-
tional Elie Wiesel Remembrance
Award to Sigmund Strochlitz, a
prominent businessman and
Jewish leader, who, like Wiesel

STROCHLITZ and Wiesel have

Wiesel is chairman. The dinner
last week was also sponsored by
the Elie Wiesel Holocaust

Fund in Washington.
The award presented to
Strochlitz was a bronze statue by

engraved quotation from Isaiah

riage, and now serve as resource
persons for the Canadian commit-
tee. They point out that problems
develop when a bride and groom
choose to live a more religiously
observant life than their parents.
The Samuels said that the com-
mittee of course helps Jews plann-
ing marriage, as well as Jews in
early stages of their new relation-
ship. It identifies what parts of
the marriage are custom, and
therefore subject to "negotiation
for the sake of family peace, and
which are not."
Sociologist Davids attributed
the current breakdown in Jewish
family life to several problems.
One is physical isolation of many
newly-married couples from
parents, older relatives and
friends, a situation which forces
them to depend on "their own
wisdom, life experiences and
financial resources." He explain-
ed that stress in such marriages,
which "used to be shared, is now
borne alone."
women now frequently must work
outside the home. This generates
increasing demands on their
energy, time and inner resources,
as well as imposing unique strains
on the marital relationship, he
Davids indicated he had no illu-
sion that marriage preparation
courses will solve the problem of
increasing divorce among Cana-
dian Jews, Orthodox and non-
Orthodox. But he said he was
heartened that Canadian Or-
thodox leaders are recognizing
that the laws of family purity do
not automatically preserve the
marriage bond, and that Canadian
Jewish community leaders realize
that just being Jewish also does
not preserve those bonds. Wiener
Davids asserted that a Jewish
community is "derelict" if it fails
to note the marriage problem and
"try to come to terms" with it.
Italian Jewish Congress Ends on Strong Note
12th Quadrennial Congress
of the Union of Italian
Jewish Communities (UIJC)
ended on a strong note of
unity and with a newly
discovered capacity to
"speak out" on the part of
Italy's 40,000 Jews.
That capacity, and the com-
munity's new spirit of fraternal
collaboration with the Vatican will
be put to its first major test in the
weeks ahead by the UIJC's une-
quivocal stand against the 1985
accord between the Education
Ministry and the Catholic
Episcopal Conference which in-
troduced the teaching of the
Catholic religion in the Italian
school system at all grade levels.
That was one of the issues which
dominated the three-day Con-
gress. It is especially pertinent
now. This week a joint commis-
sion of four Jewish represen-
tatives and four members of
Parliament will attempt a final
draft revision of the UIJC's con-
cordat with the Italian State to
replace the original 1930 version.
TULIA ZEVI, a Jewish jour-
nalist and the first woman presi-
dent of the UIJC, won reelection
by a landslide at the Congress. In
her opening speech she expressed
"serious concern" over the
teaching of Catholicism in the
public schools. She stressed that

constitutional grounds and the

Settlers Vow Unrest
If Land-for-Peace Is Policy
- While the Middle East
peace process appears to be
on hold, the future of the
West Bank and Gaza con-
tinues to be a major topic of
argument in both Israel and
the United States.
In the U.S. especially, even in
the Jewish community, the
assumption is that a solution re-
quires Israeli withdrawal at least
from part of the West Bank.
But Elyakim Haetzni, a member
of the Kiryat Arba Municipal
Council and a leader of the Judaea
and Samaria settlement move-
ment, is in the U.S. to stress that
if the Israeli government would
agree to withdrawal, thousands of
Jewish settlers would refuse to
"I will remain," he said in a talk
recently at the American Enter-
prise Institute, a Washington-
based think tank.
HAETZNI, a lawyer and
founder of Elisha (Citizens for
Judaea, Samaria, Gaza, Jerusalem
and Golan), said any Israeli
withdrawal would be "illegal" and
that any Israeli leader who agreed
to such a step would be a
If the Israeli army were to try to
evict the Jewish settlers there
would be no "bloodshed" between
Jews. Instead, he said, the settlers
would engage in "civil
Haetzni was joined at the AEI
by Ehud Sprinzak, a senior lec-
turer in political science at
Hebrew University who is cur-
rently a visiting professor at
American University here.
Sprinzak said Haetzni
represents what he calls the
"radical right" in Israel. The "bad
news" is that this group
represents "a very significant and
influential stream in Israel's
political culture" with the support
of 20-25 percent of Israelis, Sprin-
zak said.
HE SAID the radical right was
the most "dynamic camp" in
Israeli politics. He said they have
a particular appeal to the youth,
who recognize that these people,
unlike others, believe what they
In addition, Sprinzak said that
non-political Israelis have been en-
couraged to move to the West
Bank by the offer of inexpensive
housing. Once there they become
quickly involved in supporting the
views of the radical right.
Sprinzak said the radical right is
made up of five elements. The
first and most important is Gush
Emunim, which spearheaded the
settlement movement. The second
is the Tehiya Party, which enjoys
the support of 7-8 percent of
Israelis, according to Sprinzak.
Kahane's Kach group, he said.
The fourth group are "extreme
rabbis and intellectuals" who
speak like Gush Emunim but think
like Kahane, Sprinzak said.
He said the final group is made
up of Trade and Industry Minister
Ariel Sharon and his followers in
Likud. He said they remain in
Likud in hopes that Sharon can
become Prime Minister.
Sprinzak said the radical right
, has grown since 1977 and the
signing of the Camp David Ac-
cords, which they opposed. He at-
tributed this to the lack of a Likud
leader who baa the personal
authority to make international
agreements and then tell those op-
posed, "You are not going to tell
me how to defend Israel.'
Haetzni did not directly reply to
Sprinzak's analysis, although he
called the Camp David
agreements a "sellout"
But he made a strong defense of
the Jewish right to live in Judaea
and Samaria. "It is difficult to
understand the difference bet-
ween Jaffa and Hebron or if you
like Ramie and RamaUah," he
said. He noted that Israel cap-
tured Ramie and Jaffa in 1948 and
Hebron and Ramallah in 1967.
HE SAID that as Israel did
when East Jerusalem was
liberated in the Six-Day War, "we
should have made it dear in '67
that Judaea and Samaria are the
real goal of our return to the Land
of Israel. This is the place where
the Bible took place."
"Do we live in the time of the .
Bible or do we live today?" Sprin-
zak responded. He said that he
and many other Israelis do not
want to live like the rest of the
Middle East, but in a democracy,
something which he suggested the
radical right does not want.
Haetzni said that while he
favors annexing Judaea and
Samaria, he would not do so until
a quarter of a million Jews live
there. About 70,000 Jews do now.
Then he said he would favor
autonomy for the Palestinians liv-
ing there. He said the more Jews
in the area "the less anxiety, the
less nervous" the Jewish settlers
will be and the more self-
government the Palestinians
could have.
BUT SPRINZAK said that
Jews and Arabs living side-by-side
does not guarantee friendship. He
noted that in the West Bank there
is Jewish vigilantism and Jewish
terrorism for the first time in 40
Asked if Arabs on the West
Bank under his plan would be
allowed to vote for the Knesset,
Haetzni said he would agree to
that when Jews could vote in Jor-
dan. He noted that Jordan allows
no Jews and no one challenges
Haetzni pointed out that there'
are several towns called Hebron in }
the U.S. "Imagine if the mayor'
there or the central government
would decide that Jews there can-
not buy land or buy a home or
open a shop or live in Hebron," he
said. He added that in the
"Original Hebron" that was the
HE GAVE a long legal argu-
ment for Israel's right to the West
Bank and Gaza. He noted that
both the Balfour Declaration and
the British Mandate listed
Palestine as what is now Israel,
the West Bank and Jordan. But
Britain broke off Eastern
Palestine in 1922 to give to King
Abdullah and in the 1939 White
Paper forbade any Jewish settle-
ment in Judaea and Samaria as
well as immigration. He said the
new Israeli government dissolved
the White Paper, which meant-
that settlement in the West Bank
was no longer illegal.
In addition, Haetzni stressed
that after conquering the West
Bank in 1948, Abdullah passed a
new law that the Arabs on both
sides of the Jordan are "one peo-
Jle." Noting that the majority of
ordanians are Palestinians,
Haetzni said that there is already
a Palestinian state.
He said that fear of what would
happen if Jordan had added to it
the 1.3 million Palestinians in the
West Bank and Gaza is one of the
reasons that King Hussein could
not answer the invitation to
negotiations during the two years

Violence Poses Dilemma of Israel's Legitimacy
The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shamir's
Unity Government is meeting as a
Ministerial Defense Committee these days
to discuss the continuing violence on the
West Bank. As of early this week three
Arabs have already been killed by Israel
Defense Forces soldiers a 14-year-old boy
near Nablus and two 22-year-old students at
the Bir Zeit Unive "ty.
Obviously, a time jomb is rapidly ticking
away in this occupied region. It does little
good when Maj. Gen. Ehud Barak, the com-
mander of the central front, explains the
three deaths by declaring that in both in-
stances soldiers followed the approved pro-
cedure when the Arab rioting got out of
Approved procedure includes these steps
to be taken against Arabs involved m
violence: orders to cease; followed by firing
of weapons into the air if the orders are not
carried out; followed finally by firing at the
feet of rioters who have disregarded the
first two orders to emphasize that IDF or
border patrol personnel mean business.
An Unpleasant Parallel
But none of this explains how bullets aim-
ed at the feet of rioters in the end inflicted
fatal wounds on the three Arab youths. Nor
will these procedures ever do any good as a
means of appeasing Arab residents on the
West Bank. It may well be that nothing will
do any good to settle the volatile air of Arab
discontent, and as Israeli frustration mounts
in the matter of maintaining civil order, in-
creasingly oppressive measures are likely to
mount as well.
It is not a pleasant parallel, but the deter-
mination of the ruling South Africa govern-
ment to maintain its apartheid policies is in
the end bound to fail as it enforces these
policies against growing black civil disobe-
dience and increasing pressure from abroad
to put an end to it.
None of this suggests that the parallel
holds in entirety. Israel is a legitimate na-
tion, and its government is legitimate within
specified geographic boundaries. Within
these boundaries, there are Arabs who con-
tinue to question this legitimacy by acts of
violence. Abroad, there are forces, for exam-
ple the Palestine Liberation Organization,
determined to put an end, not just to Israel's
legitimacy, but to its facticity as a nation.
Rut of Official Policy
In Israel's struggle to keep Israeli Arabs
as an allegiant part of the country's total
population, it has every right to defend itself
against disobedience that includes
everything from rioting to the murder of
Israeli citizens.
And in Israel's armed struggle against ter-
rorism from abroad, it has every right to
counter acts of warfare with acts of warfare
of its own.
It is in the occupied territories where pro-
blems arise where the questioned
legitimacy of Israel's claims on the West
Bank and in Gaza shifts the focus on Israel,
right or wrong, from a nation of order to one
of oppression. Just as the South African na-
tion, once regarded as a legitimate govern-
ment, has no right to deny blacks their
democratic rights, Israel must come to more
realistic terms with the destiny of the ter-
ritories than shape some of the fantasies

controlling its policies in the territories
^The fact is that every responsible Israel
government leader knows tnis but too
many of them remain in the rut of official
policy that suggests that the Arabs there
must be made to accept Israeli occupation as
an unalterable fact.
Time Bomb Ticking
For example, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said the other day that Israel must br-
ing Arab youths into service in the IDF;
otherwise, how would they ever be expected
to acquire a sense of citizenship within the
nation as a whole? And Minister of Com-
merce and Industry Ariel Sharon has
declared that the only way to counter Arab
rioting in the territories is to increase
Jewish settlement there.
Rabin's suggestion seems proper enough
on its face. But if Arab youths are disaf-
fected, indeed totally rebellious against the
thought of allegiance to Israel, then bringing
them to service in the IDF could be irrele-
vant as a solution to the problem, if not
downright dangerous.
So far as Sharon's recommendation is con-
cerned, it has been the backbone of Prime
Minister Shamir's West Bank policy since
his first prime ministership as an extension
TH6 srecrmxfi
of the policy of his predecessor, Menachem
Begin. And what good has that done?
The fact is that the violence escalates daily
in the territories. Some real movement in
the direction of solving the problem must be
made. And soon. Unfortunately, the current
international obsession with Iranscam, in-
cluding Israel's role in it as an agent of the
Reagan Administration, preoccupies the
leaders of both governments to the exclu-
sion almost of all other business.
Meanwhile, the West Bank time bomb
keeps ticking away.
U.S., Israel Urged
'Come Clean' on Iran, Contra Rebel Funds
Friday, December 12,1986
Volume 16
Number 34
Tom Dine, the
director of the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee, has urged Israeli
and American leaders to
"come clean" in divulging
every possible detail about
the controversial arms sales
to Iran and the
U.S.-supported Contra
rebels fighting to overthrow
the Sandinista government
in Nicaragua.
Speaking to supporters of
AIPAC during a fund-raising sw-
ing through northern California,
Dine stated that it is in the best in-
terest of U.S.-Israel relations to
answer the questions that Jews
and non-Jews alike have begun to
"Did Israel sell arms to the Con-
tras with the authority of the
President of the United States?"
Dine asked during one talk to 600
AIPAC supporters at the Fair-
mont Hotel in San Francisco.
"Did it circumvent American
law or manipulate American
foreign policy? By selling arms to
Iran, has Israel helped Iran's
leader, Ayatollah Khomeini,
spread his Islamic revolution?
These are serious questions, and
ones which require serious
BUT DINE, who stated that
"the truth hurts, but is better to
get it out in the short run," said he
is confident that Israel's Knesset
will get to the bottom of that coun-
try's involvement. "With an
unfettered press and a parliamen-
tary system, the truth will
ultimately win out," he said.
Regarding U.S. actions, Dine
said he hopes a bipartisan Con-
gressional committee soon will be
formed. Describing the Reagan
Administration's involvement as
"the most tangled web of national
and global interests I've seen in
my 20 years on Capitol Hill," the
former Congressional aide said he
is most concerned with how the
crisis will affect the conduct of
foreign policy.
Furthermore, he noted, "in the

disarray, some people close to the
President are dividing administra-
tion members into loyalists and
those "who are disloyal to the
President, and this is extremely
The main problem with this
"siege mentality," Dine said, is
that one of the major architects of
the U.S.-Israel policy, Secretary
of State George Shultz, who "has
been critical in advancing
U.S.-Israel relations in the last
two years," may be forced to
the consequences of a prospective
Cabinet shakeup. He noted that
with Vice Admiral John Poindex
ter fired as the National Security
Council (NSC) chief, and with the
appointment of Frank Carlucci as
the new NSC chief, "we may be
seeing a lightly pro-Arab tilt in the
Carlucci, who worked for
Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger during the Nixon Ad-
ministration and early in the
Reagan Administration, was a
"strong supporter of arms sales,
especially AWACS, to Saudi
Arabia," Dine explained.
In the event that Shultz is forc-
ed to resign, Dine said,
Weinberger, a strong supporter of
arms sales to the Saudis, may
become a major foreign
policymaker, possibly even
Secretary of State. "No matter
how pro-Israel Reagan is, the
President has to have people in
the State Department whose sup-
port of Israel is unfaltering," Dine
REFERRING TO last year's
$3 billion foreign aid package, to
the Free Trade Agreement of
1984, and to the "strategic
cooperation" that now exists bet-
ween the United States and
Israel, Dine stated that it has been
nothing short of "amazing, in a
time of budget deficits, what the
Reagan Administration has done
to be supportive towards Israel in
terms of military and economic
"Clearly, this whole affair is
potentially tragic when you con-
sider the extent of the bilateral
relations between Israel and the
United States that have been nur-
tured over the years."
It is precisely the un-
precedented cooperation between
the two countries that may be en-
dangered by the unfolding con-
troversy of arms sales to Iran and
diverted funds to the Nicaraguan
rebels, Dine said while noting that
Congress will be acting on foreign
aid appropriations as early as
March. "It's critical that both the
U.S. and Israel clear the air now
before foreign and military aid
comes up for a vote," he said.

10-Day Adjournment
Defendants in U.S. Arms to Iran Await Trial
Federal judge in Manhattan
has granted a 10-day ad-
journment of all pretrial
proceedings in the case of
defendants charged with
conspiracy to sell American
weapons to Iran.
The ruling followed a request
by the prosecution that the case
be reevaluated in the light of re-
cent disclosures of the U.S. Ad-
ministration's role in the arms
deal. One defendant has been add-
ed to the indictment, bringing the
number of defendants in the case
to 18. The trial is scheduled to
begin Feb. 2.
fice in Manhattan, which is pro-
secuting the case, is presumably
considering dismissal of the
charges as a result of reports that
the Reagan Administration con-
doned and orchestrated arms
sales to Iran through interna-
tional arms dealers in patterns
strikingly similar to those spelled
out in the indictment and papers
filed in this case.
At a previous hearing, Assistant
U.S. Attorney Lorna Schofield
said the recent disclosures has
"no bearing whatsoever" on this
case and the U.S. Attorney's Of-
fice would pursue the prosecution.
But in remarks in court last week,
Schofield backed off from her
previous position.
She said her office needed 10
days to reassess the case in light
of the new evidence which
emerges almost daily of the
Reagan Administration's deep in-
volvement with arms sales to Iran
during the past 18 months.

those placed in a somewhat un-
comfortable position as the story
of the Administration's role in the
Iran affair unfurls. Admittedly,
the U.S. Attorney's Office was
unaware of the Administration's
covert policy to supply arms to
Iran. But at the same time, the
Justice Department and the U.S.
Customs Service set up secret
bank accounts and arranged a
complicated sting operation to set
up the defendants in this case,
who are now accused of breaking
the same laws President Reagan
personally authorized others to
Attorney Neal Hurwitz for
defendant Israel Eisenberg, an
Israeli, told Sand, "I was led to
believe when called on that Ms.
Schofield had indicated that Mr.
(Rudolph) Giuliani (the U.S. At-
torney in Manhattan) is conduc-
ting a full reevaluation of con-
tinued prosecution of this mat-
ter." Hurwitz said that Schofield
had stopped short of saying in
court that her office was consider-
ing dismissing the charges.
The hearing was originally
scheduled to argue a motion to
dismiss the indictment for reasons
of lack of jurisdiction in New
York, entrapment, and prejudicial
pretrial publicity.
arguments suspended until Dec.
11, noting that it would be unfair
to the defendants to allow any
more time because all but one are
being held against their will under
the conditions of their bonds.
Defense attorneys also voiced
concern over reports that key
documents in the Iran affair had
been destroyed. Judge Sand
issued an order to the U.S. At-
torney's Office to convey to all
branches of government that "no
person empowered by the U.S.
government or any agency is to
destroy, conceal, or alter any
document, which relates to the
shipment or arms to Iran either
directly or via another country."

Kirkpatrick Says
Israel Has Reason To Aid Contras
Friday, December 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 3
Jeane Kirkpatrick, the
former U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations, main-
tained here Monday that
"Israel has every reason of
its own to aid the Contras,"
the Reagan Administration-
backed rebels trying to
overthrow the Sandinista
government of Nicaragua.
But she added that Israel
played only a "marginal
role" in the Iran arms sales
Kirkpatrick made her com-
ments at the opening session of
the "Jeane Kirkpatrick Forum"
at Tel Aviv University, so named
for her championship of Israel at
the UN. At a press conference
earlier, she discussed the troubles
facing the Reagan Administration
from the sale of arms to Iran and
Jeane Kirkpatrick
the diversion of the proceeds to
the Contras in possible violation of
the law as it stood at the time.

the Sandinistas are "sworn
enemies of Israel" who have
"forged ties of blood" with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion. "The first Embassy to open
in Nicaragua after the Sandinistas
took over was that of the PLO,"
Kirkpatrick claimed.
She said the small Jewish com-
munity in Nicaragua was forced
into exile and even if the struggle
in Central America was not
Israel's fight. Israel had the right
to aid the Contra underground.
And if the U.S. turned to Israel
for advice, Israel had to do so to
the best of its ability, she said.
Israel, while acknowledging a
role in the shipment of U.S. arms
to Iran at the request of the
Reagan Administration, has firm-
ly and repeatedly denied any in-
volvement in or knowledge of the
transfer of monies from the sale
to the Contras.
U.S. ATTORNEY General Ed-
win Meese, at a Nov. 25 Wliite
House press conference im-
plicated Israel directly in the
transfer, saying that "represen-
tatives of Israel" transferred pro-
fits from the Iranian arms deal to
Swiss bank accounts maintained
by the Contras.
Kirkpatrick said "I do not
believe the relationship between
Israel and the United States will
suffer because of the events sur-
rounding Iran and the hostages."
The Reagan Administration
said at one point that the arms
deal was an effort to free
American hostages being held by
pro-Iranian groups in Lebanon.
At other times it insisted it was
not trading arms for hostages but
was attempting to send a "signal"
to Iran that it wanted to improve
relations with Tehran and to
establish links with Iranian
"moderates" who might eventual-
ly replace the Islamic fundamen-
talist regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini.
President Reagan in her press
conference remarks and appeared
to hold others in his Administra-
tion responsible for Reagan's dif-
ficulties. The President bore
"ultimate responsibility," the
former envoy said, but direct
responsibility rested on Secretary
of State George Shultz, White
House Chief of Staff Donald
Regan and Meese.
She said the affair had shown
Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir chats with bus driver
Yaakov Saada during a visit to the Hadassah- University
Hospital in Jerusalem shortly after Shamir assumed office in the
rotation of Israel's coalition government. Saada was vnjured by
terrorist grenades last month during an attack on young soldiers
and their families just outside the walls of the Ola City.
"shocking levels of disagree-
ment" between Reagan and his
senior advisers. Shultz, appearing
before the House Foreign Affairs
Committee in Washington Mon-
day morning, upheld the Presi-
dent's overall policy in the Middle
East but reiterated that he had
opposed arms to Iran and that he
knew "zero" about the transfer of
funds to the Contras.
"I have a sense that at a certan
critical point, the President was
sort of pushed on the stage, out
front, and given the burden of try-
ing to explain and defend policy,
that his principal advisers were
sort of bringing up the rear,"
Kirkpatrick said. "They had in-
itiated a policy in which they had
AT ANOTHER point she said
she was "amazed" to learn that
senior Administration officials
were responsible for the sale of
arms to Iran via Israel, and the
flow of funds to the Contras.
In reply to a question, she said
she was not a candidate for the
Vice Presidency in 1988. She
hinted, however, that she might
replace Shultz should he resign.
President Chaim Herzog of
Israel, who attended the opening
of the Tel Aviv University forum,
praised Kirkpatrick as a "great
American and true friend" of
Israel. "We are happy that your
long-term and courageous con-
nection with Israel now receives a
permanent stamp," he said, refer-
ring to the naming of the forum in
her honor.
'Games' Parties
Escape Prosecution
BONN (JTA) The State
Prosecutor in Darmstadt has
dropped proceedings against
unknown parties responsible for a
ghoulish parlor game which sends
pawns representing Jews to Nazi
death camps, because no dues to
their identity have been found
after nearly a year of investiga-
tion, it was announced last week.
A spokesman for the Prosecutor
said it is likely that the games
were manufactured in the United
States. If so, it might take years
to gather evidence, by which time
the perpetrators would benefit
from the statute of limitations.
Copies of the board game were
mailed anonymously to 70 schools
all over West Germany at the
beginning of the year. The parcels
were postmarked in Darmstadt.

Christmas Capitalism
The Packaging of Fievel Mousekewitz
Friday, December 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 7
What's a nice Jewish car-
toon character like Fievel
Mousekewitz doing in places
like these?
The rodent star of Steven
Spielberg's new animated film,
"An American Tail," is the
centerpiece of two major
Christmas sales promotions, both
apparently with Spielberg's
At more than 7,000 McDonald's
restaurants across the United
States, Fievel is pictured on four
facsimile-stocking Christmas tree
ornaments, each given free to pur-
chasers of a $5 book of gift
THE BOOKS also contain a
coupon for $5 off a $25 Fievel doll
at 801 Sears department stores
nationwide. Sears has exclusive
rights to sell merchandise based
on the movie's characters, accor-
ding to James Podany, director of
marketing communications for
Sears Roebuck and Co., Chicago.
Sears is placing the characters
on a variety of children's products
as a draw for sales during the
Christmas season, however,
Podany insisted that Fievel is not
pictured on any Christmas-related
items such as a wreath or tree
The use of an identifiably
Jewish character to boost
Christmas sales is incongruous to
say the least, isn't it? "I think it's
ill-advised" and "tacky," said Dr.
Eliot Spack, executive, director of
the Coalition for Alternatives in
Jewish Education. He noted that
he was expressing his own opi-
nions, not his organization's
HOWEVER, he said that the
Fievel campaigns did not pose ma-
jor assimilation problems for
Jews. "I'm not personally worried
that we're going to lose thousands
of Jews over it," he said, explain-
ing that children won't easily
identify the mouse as Jewish,
since Fievel is an uncommon
Jewish name.
He chalked up the Fievel promo-
tions to capitalism. "Chanukah
and Jewish linkages have clearly
been exploited for many years" in
the promotion of Christmas and
non-religious events, he added.
Spokespeople for the companies
involved, in interviews with JTA,
denied any tackiness or incongrui-
ty in the use of Fievel.
Podany of Sears said the Fievel-
centered campaign appears at
Christmas-time only to concur
with the release of the movie.

The Herut Party Secretariat

THE TRIP, announced last

been attacked in both leftwing
and rightwing circles. They say it
could be interpreted as a symbolic
forgiveness of the Germans for
their Nazi past.
Herzog has argued that his
three-day stay in the Federal
Republic will focus on the
Holocaust. He plans to attend a
memorial service at the site of the
Bergen-Belsen concentration
camp. His trip will reciprocate the

Meanwhile, Herzog's Southeast
Asia visit is having repercussions
in Malaysia, where he did not go,
and Singapore, where he was
greeted by anti-Israel demonstra-
tions. Malaysia is an Islamic coun-
try which does not have
diplomatic relations with Israel.
Singapore has, but is strongly in-
fluenced by its Islamic neighbors,
Malaysia to the north, Indonesia
to the west and south and Brunei
to the southeast.
CHARGES OF "Zionist in-
terference" in Malaysia's internal
affairs were raised in that coun-
try's English-language weekly
Watan last week. It reported on
an "Anti-Jew Day" speech by
Mustapha Ali, the Islamic Party
youth leader. He charged that the
U.S.-based Asia Foundation is a
"front" for American Jews and
demanded that its office in Kuala
Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, be
closed. He was quoted as saying,
"Our determination is to destroy
the Jews and also to stop all cam-
paigns that are carried out by non-
Jews who wish to obstruct the ex-
pansion of Islam."
The Straits Times, an English-
language daily in Singapore,
reported that Mustapha Ali also
charged that Singapore policy was
influenced by a Jew, Alex Josey,
the biographer of Singapore
Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew,
whom he formerly served as press
spokesman. Lee warmly welcom-
ed Herzog to Singapore last
More Violence
In Jerusalem
Arab violence and vandalism con-
tinues in the Old City. A Molotov
cocktail was thrown at an Arab-
occupied house in the Moslem
quarter, causing slight damage
but no casualties. Several more
blazing gasoline bombs were
found in the neighborhood, near
the Shuvu Banim yeshiva where
stabbing victim Eliahu Amdi had
been a student.
Inc., both of Universal City,
Calif., acknowledged that Fievel
is Jewish and even receives
Chanukah gifts in the film, but he
said the film is less a Jewish story
than one of immigration that
fosters universal American values
such as the "melting pot."
"No one thought of it with a
religious significance," he said of
the many Jews, including himself
and Spielberg, among the leader-
ship of Amblin and Universal.
"We would probably be as sen-
sitive as anybody," he added.
But might not children who see
the film and then see the
character pushing Christmas sales
get the wrong impression of
Judaism? "I really don't think so,"
he said. "I don't think anybody
here thought of it as being as
much of a Christmas promotion as
a (generally ecumenical) holiday
promotion." According to Terri
Capotosto, media relations
manager for McDonald's Corp.,
Oak Brook, 111., the movie
represents American values of
inter-cultural understanding,
hope and family heritage.
MOREOVER, both Capotosto
and McDonald's customer rela-
tions repesentative Chris Garrity
noted that families can participate
in the Fievel promotion without
gettng involved in Christmas.
Scenes from the movie decorate
the packages of McDonald's meals
for children from Nov. 24-Dec. 24,
which each week is accompanied
by a different Fievel storybook.
She said she didn't see anything
wrong with placing Fievel on the

added that McDonald's

Tofu Latkes
For Chanukah
Latkes, also known as potato
pancakes, are a traditional
Chanukah dish usually served
with applesauce or sour cream.
Because they are fried in oil, these
latkes commemorate the miracle
of the temple oil which burned for
eight days following the victory of
Judas Maccabeus in 165 BCE.
But who said latkes must be
made from potatoes?
David Mintz, well-known
creator of Tofutti(R) brand non-
diary frozen dessert and recogniz-
ed Tofu Whiz, recommends his
special recipe for Tofu Latkes this
1 lb. tofu
Vi cup flour (or for crunchier
latkes, Vt cup matzo meal)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch garlic
Oil for fryinsr
Combine tofu and eggs in
blender. While blending, add
flour, lemon juke and seasonings
to the mixture until smooth. Then
heat the oil. For each latke, drop
two tablespoons of mix into frying
pan and cook until golden brown
on both sides. Remove latkes to
warm platter. Repeat with two
more tablespoons of mix until
done. Should make one dozen
medium-size latkes.
Variation: Add, by hand, about
% cup frozen chopped spinach or
broccoli to the mixture onee blend-
ed. Heat the oil and proceed as
discussed the issue at length, con-
cluding that Fievel transcended
any one ethnic group.
But she said, "We certainly
apologize if someone has misinter-
preted (the Fievel ornaments). .
We obviously wouldn't do
anything that would offend

Israeli soldier marches past on a patrol dur- mobs against Arab residents
A new upsurge of violence
in the Old City and in the
West Bank has resulted in
mass arrests of Arab youths
who took to the streets to
mark the 39th anniversary
of the November 29, 1947
resolution of the United Na-
tions General Assembly to
partition Palestine into
Jewish and Arab states.
The unrest erupted as passions
continued to run high over the
fatal stabbing of yeshiva student
Eliahu Amdi in the Old City Nov.
15 which was followed by nine
days of attacks on Arabs and their
property by local Jews infuriated
by the murder. Three Arabs have
been charged in Amdi's murder.
WHILE MOST of the distur-
bances involved Arabs, a firebomb
was thrown, apparently by Jews,
at an Arab-occupied house near
the Dung Gate, the entrance to
the Western Wall area. Two cars
were set on fire at the Hebrew
University Mt. Scopus campus. A
third attempt at arson was foiled.
A group of Arab students at-
tempted to force their way to the
Temple Mount which was cordon-
ed off by police. A Moslem guard
who tried to intervene on behalf of
the students was arrested. Arab
shopkeepers were forced to close
their doors under pressure from
young Arab militants. Students
managed to temporarily shut off

East Jerusalem. Five were

chain of events that led to anti.

lives and property. The meeting

Knesset members, Mohammad

Several Palestinian moderates
also attended, including Hafez

Israel Soft on Soviets

Israel of failing to campaign
publicly for Soviet Jews because it
does not want to irritate the

Vanunu To Remain in Custody
Mordechai Vanunu, accused
of passing State secrets con-
cerning Israel's alleged
nuclear weapons arsenal to
a foreign newspaper, will re-
main in custody pending a
hearing on the Prosecutor's
request that he be held in
jail until the end of his trial,
Jerusalem District Court
Judge Zvi Tal has ruled. No
date has been set for the
Tal also rejected a request by
Vanunu's attorney, Amnon
Zichroni, to hold the hearing in
public. The trial, when it begins, is
expected to last about six weeks.
Seven witnesses will appear for
the prosecution and five or six for
the defendant, according to
Zichroni. Most of them will be
from abroad and probably will
testify as character witnesses.
VANUNU, a former technician
at the Dimona nuclear facility, is
accused of giving a British
newspaper information alleging
that Israel has been manufactur-
ing nuclear weapons for 20 years
and now possesses a sufficient
number to rank sixth among the
world's nuclear powers.
The charge sheet against him
was formally submitted to the
District Court, and it appears less
than likely that Vanunu will face
the death penalty.
The charges cite two sections of
the Criminal Code. Section 99
assistance to an enemy in time of
war provides the death penalty
or life imprisonment for "a person
who, with intent to assist an
enemy in war against Israel, com-
mits an act calculated so to assist

33 Cases of AIDS Recorded
In Israel As Test Centers Open
The Health Ministry has set
up seven blood testing
centers around the country
to check for AIDS Ac-
quired Immune Deficiency
Syndrome which can be
transmitted through blood
transfusions. To date, 33
cases of AIDS have been
diagnosed in Israel, of which
17 were fatal according to
Ministry figures.
Dr. Moshe Mashiach of the
Health Ministry said 20 of the
diagnosed patients were homosex-
uals, 10 were hemophiliacs, one an
intravenous drug user, and two
others were infected by transfu-
sions of contaminated blood-
Blood donated for transfusions
has been screened for AIDS since
the beginning of the year.
SO FAR, 10 samples were
found to have the AIDS antibodies
and the donors have been located
and asked to undergo further
tests. Mashiach pointed out that
the presence of the antibody does
not necessarily mean the carrier
posure to it.
Apart from homosexuals, few
persons have availed themselves
of the free blood testing service.
The government's Special AIDS
Policy Committee, which initiated
the program, has recommended
that the testing center; accept
anyone producing an identifica-
tion card without need for referral
by a doctor.

How To Describe
Chanukah To Our
Non-Jewish Friends
Temple Sinai
Delray Beach
The Jewish holiday of Chanukah
commemorates history's first
struggle for religious freedom.
The war took place 165 years
before the time of Jesus. Judea
was then part of a kingdom which
came under the control of a Greco-
Syrian king named Antiochus.
Like Russia today, the regime
permitted its conquered people to
live but banned any kind of wor-
ship except that prescribed by the
monarch. His brand of paganism
called for the worship of idols, in-
cluding one of himself.
Every nation under Antiochus
acquiesced, except Judea. Enrag-
ed, Antiochus sent his armies
against Jerusalem and planted his
images in the holy temple itself.
Against this desecration a hardy
group of rebels arose led by Mat-
thathias, a Jewish priest and his
five sons who came to be known as
For three years the battles rag-
ed. The fighting Jews held off the
mightiest armies on earth.
Although they began with a hand-
ful their forces grew. Miraculous-
ly, the Jews were victorious! They
routed the enemy and repaired to
the temple where they conducted
a ceremony of re dedication.
Chanukah is Hebrew for
Ever since, the Jewish people
have celebrated the holiday for
eight days. Worship services and
sermons in the synagogue glorify
the idea of religious liberty, the
gift of the Maccabees to posterity.
In the home and synagogue, a
candelabrum (Hebrew: menorah)
is the centerpiece of the obser-
vance. On the first night, a candle
is lit, amidst prayers thanking the
Almighty One for inspiring
spiritual heroes to make sacrifices
for a noble cause. On each night
thereafter, an additional light is
kindled. The crescendo of light
symbolizes the enlargement of
forces engaged in a sacred
Chanukah is a gift-giving holi-
day. But, as at all Jewish festivals,
gifts are also given to the poor.
Contributions to charity are a fix-
ture for all Jewish observances.
Christians might have good
reason to share in the celebration
of Chanukah since the Maccabees
saved the idea of monotheism
which some 160 years later in-
spired the birth of a daughter
faith, Christianity.
The Chanukah saga is recorded
in several books of that post-
Biblical literature known as the
Apocrypha. The Books of the Mac-
cabees describe in detail the way
in which the weak overcame the
strong. It is a story which has
been duplicated other times as
well. Witness the triumph of a
handful of colonists under George
Washington against the British.
Witness the incredible way a
handful of British aviators held off
the Nazi hordes. Witness the vic-
tories of the modern Maccabees in
the resurrected state of Israel,
against forces which outnumbered
them 200 to 1. The story of the
Maccabees (also known as the
Hasmoneans) has also been cor-
roborated by archeological finds.
In the tenth chapter of the Book
of John, in the New Testament we
read about Jesus' observance of
Chanukah, which is also known as
the Feast of Lights.
Christians and Jews will join, as
they observe their separate
holydays, in prayers that the Holy
Land and its environs will at long
last enjoy the blessings of perma-
nent peace.
Chanukah is not a holiday when
Jewish children absent
themselves from school (as they
do on the High Holydays,

High Court Says No
To 'Convert' Label for Some Jews
A Supreme Court panel has
ruled unanimously that the
Interior Ministry may not
inscribe the word
"converted" on the iden-
tification card of a person
converted to Judaism.
The decision, hailed in liberal
and secular circles and angrily
condemned by the Orthodox
establishment is seen likely to
revive the bitter debate over the
Who is a Jew issue because it in-
volved a conversion performed by
a Reform rabbi in the U.S. The
court ruling is considered a land-
mark because it makes clear the
supremacy of civil law in Israel.
THE RULING was handed
down by a panel of three justices
Supreme Court President Meir
Shamgar, Menahem Eylon and
Miriam Ben-Porat. Eylon, in an
addendum to the ruling, stated
that the word "converted" on an
identification card was contrary
to" religious law. A number of
leading rabbis agreed with him on
halachic grounds, though others
have ruled differently.
A storm is centered on Interior
In Finland
than 2,000 people, most of them
Gentiles, attended a David Ben-
Gurion centennial gathering in
Helsinki, Finland, last week under
the auspices of Jewish National
Fund world chairman Moshe
Rivlin. The chairman, back from a
tour of Scandinavia, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency Sun-
day that the interest in JNF's
work among non-Jews in all the
Scandinavian countries was
phenomenal especially in view
of the small Jewish communities
in those countries.
In Norway, he said, another
mass rally took place with a Ben-
Gurion-JNF theme. In Denmark,
Rivlin was welcomed at the Royal
Palace and discussed with a clear-
ly fascinated Crown Prince

forestation and land reclamation.
Rivlin said the Prince was both in-
formed and interested in matters

Minister Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz of
the Orthodox Shas Party whose
resignation was demanded here
by Orthodox leaders. The court

Ministry. Miller was converted to
Judaism in 1982 by Rabbi David
Klein of Colorado Springs, Colo.,
and immigrated to Israel three
years later, claiming citizenship.
refused to register her as a Jew.
But when she appealed to the
Supreme Court last year, Peretz
agreed to register her as a con-
vert. He explained to the Knesset
at the time that to register her
simply as Jewish without the
qualifying- "converted" could
mislead other citizens and officials
as to her standing under Jewish
law. But Miller continued to press
her appeal.
THE IRE of the Orthodox
establishment focused on Peretz
for registering Miller as Jewish
even with the qualification that
she was a convert. Ashkenazic
Chief Rabbi Avraham Shapiro
said in a statement that "The
Chief Rabbinate opposed the
(Peretz) proposal all along ... in
our view, a Reform conversion is
just a joke because it does not re-
quire acceptance of mitzvot. It is
impossible, indeed immoral, to ac-
cept such a convert whom a large
part of the Jewish people does not
accept as a Jew."
Religious Affairs Minister
Zevulun Hammer of the National
Religious Party stated that the
Orthodox position is that halacha,
not secular law, must determine
Jewish identity.
The Committee for the Purity of
the People, an Orthodox group, in-
sisted that Peretz resign because
only conversions by Orthodox rab-
bis are valid in Israel. Political
sources said that Shas was not
likely to leave the coalition
government over the Miller case.
BUT OTHER observers said it
was difficult to imagine that
Peretz could comply with the
court order by endorsing Miller's
status as a Jew without qualifica-
tion. Shas circles said the party's
Council of Torah Scholars would
meet to decide the party's position
and specifically, what action
Peretz should take. The Council is
chaired by former Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
The secular Shinui Party called
on Peretz to resign rather than
consult with his party's Torah
sages. As a Minister in the
government he is obliged to be
guided by the high court, not by a
body or religious scholars, Shinui
Meanwhile, the Progressive
(Reform) movement in Israel said
it would follow up its court victory
by introducing six more test cases

RABBI MOSHE Zemer of the
Progressive Movement hailed the
court decision as "a stage in our
straggle for recognition and full
rights" in Israel. Miller told
reporters after the court ruled in
her favor that she had a "most dif-
ficult year, a real nightmare,"
waiting for the decision. "I want
to live here as a Jew, not as
something else," she said.
In addition to its ruling, the
Court ordered the government to
pay 2,500 Shekels (about $1,600)
in legal expenses.
Interior Minister Yitzhak
Peretz, who must comply
with a Supreme Court rul-
ing to issue a Jewish iden-
tification card to a woman
converted by a Reform rab-
bi, or resign, said last Thurs-
day (Dec. 4), that he would
appeal the high court's deci-
sion in the case.
A three-justice panel, headed by
Supreme Court President Meir

scribe the word "converted" on

Miller, who was converted to
Judaism in 1982 by Rabbi David
Klein, a Reform rabbi in Colorado

to Israel in 1985, claiming the
automatic citizenship granted
every Jew.
PERETZ, who heads the Or-
thodox Shas Party, said in an in-
terview that he would seek a
rehearing of the case before a
panel of five justices. The
Supreme Court usually agrees to a
rehearing on issues considered to
be of major public interest. Peretz
said this issue has "major
He himself has come under at-
tack from other Orthodox rabbis
for granting Miller Jewish status
on her ID card, even with the
qualification "converted."
Justice Menahem Eylon, a
member of the panel, stated in an
addendum to its decision that the
qualifying "converted" was con-
trary to halacha. Many Orthodox
rabbis agree with him on that
point but refuse to countenance
Jewish status for a person con-
verted by a non-Orthodox rabbi.

Peretz said. "They would have
done her a kindness had they
directed her to go to a Rabbinical
As a result of being "led
astray," and given the publicity
surrounding the case, Miller will
never be able to marry in Israel or
in an Orthodox synagogue abroad,
Peretz said. He said that he would
argue at a rehearing that allowing
non-halachic converts to register
as Jews in Israel would amend the
standing law on marriage and

Israel Advised:
Reject U.S. Requests for Inquiries
The Cabinet meeting in clos-
ed session, heard its first
full report on the U.S.-Israel
arms shipments to Iran. Ac-
cording to a Cabinet com-
munique, Premier Yitzhak
Shamir made a statement
which was followed up in
detail by Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin.
The Cabinet convened as a
Ministeral Defense Committee,
the proceedings of which are
classified according to law. No
details of the briefing were releas-
ed but Israel Radio reported later
that several Ministers complained
over the delay in advising the full
Cabinet of the affair.
MEANWHILE, David Libai, a
legal expert and chairman of the
Knesset s Comptrol Committee,
said that any American request to
send an investigatory team to
question Israeli citizens and of-
ficials in connection with the Iran
arms deal should be rejected
because it would amount to an in-
fringement on Israel's in-
dependence and authority.

indirectly to Shamir's statement

investigating the affair wanted to
question Israeli officials, such a
request would be considered on its

tion and the case of Jonathan

permitted American investigators
to come here to question Israelis

government as such had not been

Israeli officials continued to in-
sist that they were ignorant of the
transfer of proceeds from arms
sales to Iran to the Contras, the
Reagan Administration-backed
rebels of Nicaragua. "Represen-
tatives of Israel" were implicated
in the possibly illegal transfer by
U.S. Attorney General Edwin
Meese who alleged that they
deposited between $10-$30 million
in a Swiss bank account maintain-
ed by the Contras.
But Israeli officials, who
acknowledged supplying arms to
Iran at the request of and with the
specific approval of the U.S., said
that Israel would have been
betraying its own vital interests if
it had knowingly acted to con-
travene the Congressional ban on
arms to the Contras which was in
effect at the time of the
A REPORT published in The
New York Times said emerging
evidence in the affair shows a
significant role played by Saudi
Arabia in the arms shipments to
Iran and the transfer of funds to
the Contras, indicating that the
Israelis involved may have played
a leas central role.
The key Saudi figure was Adnan
Khashoggi, a multi-millionaire
businessman. While he brought
two Israeli licensed arms dealers,
Yaacov Nimrodi and Al Schwim-
mer, into contact with Manucher
Ghorbonifar, a well-connected Ira-
nian arms dealer, in 1986, the ties
to Iran were forged more by Saudi
Arabia than by Israel, according
to the Times account

secret service, issued a statement

Inouye Says Iran Sales
Shouldn't Hurt U.S.-Israel Ties
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D.,
Hawaii) said here that the
Iran arms sales affair need
not damage U.S.-Israel rela-
tions, though he thought it
possible that Israeli officials
would be asked to testify
before Congressional com-
mittees investigating the
"I don't see how Israel could
have said no ... if the govern-
ment of the United States asked
for its help," the Senator com-
mented to reporters after a
meeting with Premier Yitzhak
Shamir. He was referring to the
Israeli shipment of weapons to
Iran which Israeli leaders insist
was done with the approval of the
U.S. and at its behest.
HE OBSERVED that even if
the request did not come from
President Reagan directly but
from a member of his National
Security Council, "Israel would
have naturally assumed it came
with the President's approval.
Israel could hardly have telephon-
ed the President of the United
States to ask him if this indeed
was the case," Inouye said.
The Senator, who will become
chairman of the key Appropria-
tions Committee when the new
Congress convenes in January,
reportedly discussed the Iran af-
fair with Shamir, including the
possibility that Israeli officials
may be asked to testify before
Congressional committees.
Shamir told reporters that
Israel has received no such re-
quest to date but indicated it
would not be viewed askance.

rogations are not necessarily a

sole purpose of which was to help
obtain the release of an American
hostage, the Rev. Benjamin Weir,
who was being held by a pro-
Iranian group in Lebanon.
"After U.S. hostages were
taken ... a meeting was held in
the office of a high-ranking Israeli
government official where the
idea was raised that I use my con-
tacts worldwide and in Iran to try
to find a way to free the hostages.
All this was to be on the basis of
humanitarian aid alone to a
friendly and allied nation that was
in trouble," Nimrodi's statement
He said he acted with others,
and as a result, Weir was released
on September 19, 1985. Nimrodi
said President Reagan told the
truth when he said the arms ship-
ment to Iran was so small that it
could be carried in a single cargo
plane with room to spare.
"EVERYTHING I did was in
the nature of a national mission,
without any reward or profit,"
Nimrodi said. He expressed disap-
pointment that no Israeli leader
has come forward to refute media
allegations that he raked in large
profits from the deal. All he
received was the thanks of then
Premier Shimon Peres when Weir
was freed, he said.
After Weir's release, "the
American authorities reched the
conclusion that they could pursue
their efforts in the future without
my help" and they continued
negotiations with Iran on their
own, Nimrodi said. "At that time
my friends and I were requested
to cease our activities in this mat-
ter. I withdrew from the matter
completely, and was not involved
in any further development."
Officials here stressed that
Israel believed throughout the af-
fair that the American Ad-
ministration was entirely behind
it. They indicated that they could
not believe that U.S. Marine
Corps Lt Col. Oliver North, an
aide to President Reagan's Na-
tional Security Adviser, Vice Ad-
miral John Poindezter, had acted
on his own authority in the Iran
arms deal and the transfer of
funds to the Contras. North was
fired by Reagan. Poindexter
THOUGH MEDIA reports have
claimed Israel was sending arms
to the regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran long
before the U.S. became involved,
Nimrodi insisted that "Since the

not executed a single deal with the

ed with Shamir a bill he is spon-
soring along with Rep. Robert
Kasten (D., Wis.) to reduce
Israel's interest burden on debts
to the U.S. The bill "should
become a reality soon," he told
reporters. Israeli sources said that
if it does indeed pass through Con-
gress it could save Israel more
than $300 million a year in in-
terest payments.

Israel Had Nothing To Do With Arms To Contras
Israeli leaders have voiced
strong assurances that
Israel has nothing to do with
the transfer of funds from
American arms sales to Iran

Knesset members persisted
in their charges that Israel
was involved and assailed
Israeli arms sates abroad in
general. The sales were
defended by Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir told
reporters here that Israel has in-
formed the U.S. government and
hopefully American public opinion
that there was no link between the
government of Israel and the
"Israel has never helped or
assisted the Contras in Central
America," he said. He hoped that
the investigations to be carried
out in the U.S. will reach the same
conclusion and lay the matter to
VICE PREMIER and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres
categorically denied that Israel
reaped financial gains from the re-
sale of American weapons to Iran
with the specific approval and at
the request of the Reagan Ad-
ministration. He insisted, at a
gathering in Pardes Hanna, that if
any money paid by Iran reached
the Contras, it was without
Israel's knowledge.
"Representatives of Israel"
were alleged by U.S. Attorney
General Edwin Meese at a White
House press conference recently
to have transferred $10-$30
million of the money paid by Iran
for the arms to a Swiss bank ac-

backed rebels trying to overthrow
the Sandinista government of
President Reagan, who claims
he was not informed that Iranian
money was going to the Contras,
said in an interview with Time
magazine November 26 that
"Another country was facilitating
those sales of weapons systems"
and "They then were overcharg-
ing and were apparently putting
the money into bank accounts of
the leaders of the Contras."
REAGAN DID not name the
other country. White House Press
Secretary Larry Speakes said that
Reagan was not implicating Israel
because he knows nothing about
the secret bank account set up for
the Contras in Switzerland.
MK Chaika Grossman of Mapam
charged that Israeli instructors
were helping the Contras and
Israeli arms dealers were supply-
ing them with weapons. She said
she based her information on a re-
cent visit to Nicaragua where she
met with Sandinista officials.
The Knesset struck from its
agenda two motions to debate the
sale of arms by Israel to Third
World countries. MK Matityahu
Peled of the Progressive List for
Peace said Israel was ashamed of
its arms customers and they were
ashamed of Israel, a reference to
the virulently anti-Israel regime
of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini in Tehran.
PELED SAID that was why the
arms deals were kept secret until
they leaked out abroad. He said
the Israeli arms industry was
overgrown and therefore hungry
for new markets.
Rabin, speaking for the govern-
ment, conceded that the defense
industry had to export to survive
but he noted that the proportion
of Israeli weapons being used in
the Iran-Iraq war was insignifi-
cant compared to those of the
Soviet Union and other powers.
Rabin also vigorously denied
that Israel was providing military
aid to the Contras. Israel supplies
neither arms, money nor know-
how and has not authorized
anyone else to supply arms,
money or know-how or any other
aid, to the Contras, he said. He
reiterated that all Israel has done
was to deliver American weapons
to Iran at the request of the
American administration.
Splinter MK
Successor Sworn In
Zucker, 34, a political scientist
and leader of Peace Now, was
sworn in as a member of the
Knesset last Monday, represen-
ting the Citizens Rights Move-
ment (CRM). He replaces
Mordechai Bar-On who resigned
his seat recently.
Bar-On quit voluntarily, saying
he did not want to stand for
reelection but wanted his suc-
cessor to gain parliamentary ex-
perience before the next elections.
In addition to Zucker, the CRM

Bonds. The Harnicks are
Chairmen of the Bonds Chanukah
Celebration, scheduled for Tues-
day evening, Dec. 23,8 p.m. in the
Plaza Room, at 2030 S. Ocean

purchased a VRI (Variable Rate
Issue) Bond ($25,000) that yields
minimum rate of interest of 7.50
percent, payable twice annually,
keyed to the Prime Rate.
Renee says she and Martin were
both weened on Yiddishkeit, and
were actively involved with Israel
Bonds since its inception in 1951.
She was president and helped
form the Sophie Tucker Hadassah
Chapter in Florida. They were
members of Temple Beth Torah in
North Miami Beach. She served as
former president of Brown Light

tin Harnick is responsible for the
invoking of the Grandfather
Clause for Pharmacists, enabling
them to take Florida State
Boards. Renee received the first
Chai Award from Israel Bonds,
presented to her by one of Israel's
leading generals.
Their many trips to Israel have
given them much insight and in-
spiration to recommit themselves
to the success of this Bond event,
for the growth and development
of Israel.

High Court Rules
It Won't Hear Nazi's
Appeal Against Extradition
The Supreme Court has
refused to hear an appeal by
Nazi war criminal Karl Lin-
nas against deportation to
the Soviet Union where he
was convicted and sentenc-
ed to death in absentia for
participating in the mass
murders of Jews and others
at a concentration camp in
Tartu, Estonia, during
World War II.
Linnas, 66, was charged by the
Justice Department's Office of
Charles Allen, Jr.
Special Investigations with lying
about his wartime activities when
he came here in 1951 from Ger-
many under the Displaced Per-
sons Act of 1948. He became a
U.S. citizen in 1960. The Justice
Department said he will be
deported to the USSR, the only
country that will accept him.
ACCORDING TO the charges,
Linnas joined a Nad execution
squad in 1941 when Germany oc-
cupied Estonia, the purpose of
which wss to exterminate
"undesirables," mostly Jews. He
is accused of commanding firing
squads that killed men, women
and children forced to kneel
before mass graves and of per-
sonally shooting several inmates
at the Tartu camp.
The Supreme Court decision
was hailed by Jewish organiza-
tions, Holocaust survivor groups
and political figures.
Brooklyn District Attorney
Elizabeth Holtzman, who as a
New York Congresswoman spon-
sored legislation that allows
deportation of Nazi war criminals,
congratulated the OSI "for its un-
tiring efforts to bring Linnas to
justice. Our country should no
longer be a sanctuary for this
brutal killer. The Second Circuit
called Linnas 'a man who ordered
the extermination of innocent
men, women and children kneel-
ing at the edge of a mass grave."
I AM particularly pleased by the
Supreme Court's action because
Linnas claimed that the law I
wrote to prevent the United
States from providing haven for
Nazi killers, the so-called
Holtzman Amendment, was un-
constitutional. Linnas mocked
U.S. justice by arguing that he
should be deported to the Esto-
nian Consulate, the New York Ci-
ty headquarters of the former
government of Estonia. I urge the
102 Jews Exit
102 Jews were allowed to leave
the Soviet Union last month, it
was reported by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry. Of this
total, 32 went to Israel, according
to the Conference. In November,
1985, 128 Jews left the USSR.
Department of Justice to take
swift action to deport Linnas."
Eli Rosenbaum, World Jewish
Congress general counsel and
former OSI prosecutor, said: "It's
really a tribute to the work of OSI
and the work of Elizabeth
Holtzman, without whom this
would never have been possible,
and also to the fine work of U.S.
Attorney Rudolph Giuliani, who
personally argued the appeal in
the Second Circuit Court of
Rosenbaum said that "there
was an unconscionable delay for
19 years in commencing legal pro-
ceedings" and that "at long last,
the day for which we have waited
25 years has arrived. Karl Lin-
nas's final appeal has been heard
and he will be deported at last."
associate national director and
head of the International Affairs
Division of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, called the
deportation of Linnas "more than
an act of justice. It is a warning to
present and future generations
against the horrors of genocide
and a reminder that apathy and
indifference helped make possible
the Holocaust."
Charles Allen, Jr., who began
investigations of Linnas in 1962
and interviewed him several
times, both by phone and in per-
son st his Greenlawn, N.Y., subur-
ban home, said that Linnas had
even then "expressed no
remorse" for his wartime ac-
tivities. Allen said that Linnas had
then threatened him and his fami-
ly with "liquidation" for being "a
Jew Communist Bolshevik" while
screaming hysterically.
Allen said that Linnas had
shown anger and anxiety that the
charges had surfaced in the
media. However, Allen told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Lin-
nas "talked fully, very volubly, ad-
mitting he was a member of the
guard unit" at the Tartu concen-
tration camp, as well as a member
of the Estonian National Army, a
collaborator group.
ALLEN WROTE about Linnas
in his 1963 book, "Nazi War
Criminals Among Us," and in
"The Basic Handbook of Nazi
War Criminals in America,"
published in 1985. Allen said that
Linnas had been living quietly in
Long Island since 1959.
Linnas was found guilty by the
U.S. District Court, Eastern
District, in July, 1981, a decision
he appealed before the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the Second Circuit
in January, 1982. That court
unanimously affirmed the appeal
for denaturalization. He then
tried to have the Supreme Court
strike down the second court's
In June, 1982, the OSI filed
charges against Linnas, and hear-
ings were heard on these charges
in December, 1982 and January,
1983 before the New York Im-
migration Court in New York Ci-
ty. He was ordered deported on
May 29, 1983. Linnas appealed
the deportation decision to the
Board of Immigration Appeal
(BIA) in July, 1983.
On July 31, 1984, he was found
deportable by the BIA, which
remanded his case to the immigra-
tion judge over the question of
U.S. refusal to recognize
Estonia's incorporation into the
Soviet Union. "Notwithstanding
this move, both the BIA and the
State Department ruled that such
consideration did not debar his
deportation," said Allen.
LINNAS HAS been held since
April at the Metropolitan Correc-
tional Center in New York, a
detention facility for those
awaiting sentencing.

Mercedes Admits
It Employed Nazi Slave Workers
BONN (JTA) The Daimler-
Benz Corp., manufacturer of the
prestigious Mercedes-Benz car,
formally acknowledged that it
employed thousands of slave
laborers during the Nazi era in a
report prepared for it by an
historian, Prof. Hans Pohl, just
released here.
The report, however, makes no
reference to possible reparations
for the surviving slave laborers or
their families. According to the
report, some 5,000 slave laborers
were employed by Daimler-Benz
in 1941 and the number rose to
18,000 in 1943, most of them
recruited from among concentra-
tion camp inmates, including large
numbers of Jews.
The slave laborers received no
compensation whatever and, near
the end of the war, were so badly
treated that they could not work.
The company ordered the report
last year after it was criticized for
the way it handled claims by
former slave laborers. Daimler-
Benz rejected them initially on
grounds that they had neither
legal nor moral standing. But
later it signaled readiness to
discuss the matter with Jewish
and other organizations represen-
ting former slave laborers.

Swiss Keep
Eye on Syrians
GENEVA (JTA) Syrian na-
tionals, including diplomats in
Switzerland, are having a hard*
time getting around. The Swiss
government has given strict in-
structions to the police to keep a
watchful eye on their movements
through Switzerland.
The government's orders stem
from Syria's involvement in an at-
tempt to smuggle explosives
aboard an Israeli airliner at
Heathrow Airport in London last
Apr. 17. Britain broke diplomatic
ties with Damascus after evidence
of Syrian complicity emerged in
the trial of Nezar Hindawi, the
Jordanian national convicted of
the crime.
AS A RESULT of the Swiss ac-
tions, even Syrians holding
diplomatic passports have been
subjected to police action. One
Syrian employed at a United Na-
tions Agency in Geneva has been
stopped several times at the air-
port here and questioned at
length, causing him to miss his

Soviet Union Appears
To Be Making
Overtures for Israel Ties
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Soviet Union appears to be
making overtures toward Israel in the course of quiet con-
tacts at senior diplomatic levels which have been going on
for some time, according to an article in Haaretz by Akiva
AT MEETINGS in recent weeks, the Soviets seemed
interested in a trade-off whereby they would renew discus-
sions on the establishment of Consular relations with Israel
and on the problem of Jewish emigration in exchange for
Israel's agreement to Soviet participation in the Middle
East political process, including an international con-
ference for Arab-Israeli peace, Haaretz said.
The contacts began early in October after then Premier
Shimon Peres met with Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze in New York, The USSR reportedly is
reassessing its Middle East policy, and, according to
reports from Israeli Ambassadors in several European
capitals, Soviet diplomats have expressed regret over
breaking relations with Israel in 1967.
THEY HAVE also indicated it was a mistake for
Moscow to rely solely on Syria with respect to its interest in
Middle East developments. According to Haaretz, the
USSRis aware of Israel's concerns.
In all their discussions, Soviet officials have called at-
tention to television programs and theatrical presentations
in the Soviet Union devoted to Jewish themes as a sign of
their willingness to reexamine Soviet attitudes toward
Israel, Haaretz reported.
