'Unprecedented9 Crime
Don't Belittle Genocide, Kohl Says
Chancellor Helmut Kohl, in
his strongest public state-
ment on the Nazi era, called
the crime of genocide
against the Jews a crime
"unprecedented in history,"
declaring "we should keep
alive the memory of the full
extent of that terrible past"
and "will oppose any at-
tempts to dismiss them
from our thoughts or belittle
The Chancellor's remarks, at
a luncheon Tuesday (Apr.
7) in honor of the visiting
President of Israel, Chaim
Herzog, was seen as a warning
Chancellor Kohl
against attempts by some
West German scholars to
equate the Nazi extermination
of Jews with other crimes in
modern history and by neo-
Nazis to rewrite history by
claiming the Holocaust never
"THE PERIOD of genocide
is the darkest chapter in Ger-
man history," Kohl said. "We
Germans have to live with the
terrible truth that in the days
of National Socialism the Jews
were subjected to unspeakable
suffering at the hands of the
Germans ... It is part of our
self-image that we keep alive
the memory .. ."

Angry Words
Shake Unity
Labor and Likud leaders
argued angrily last week
over whether their unity
coalition government should
be broken up because of
sharply divergent views on
an international conference
for Middle East Peace.
Much of the controversy
centered on Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres who was on a two-day
official visit to Spain where,
among other things, he sought
support for an international
conference. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir told reporters here
that Peres had exaggerated
the importance of his trip and
maintained that an interna-
tional conference would bring
"no salvation and certainly no
approach to Middle East peace
with King Juan Carlos of
Spain and Prime Minister
Felipe Gonzalez. But Shamir
noted that "Spain will not
even participate in such a con-
ference should it take place,
nor does it depend on Spain if
such a conference is convened

Gerda and Wolfgang Wassermann
Dedicate Two Soundproof Rooms
At Hadassah -Hebrew University
Medical Center In Jerusalem
Two soundproof rooms for
the Audiology Department of
the Hadassah-Hebrew Univer-
sity Medical Center were
dedicated in Jerusalem this
week by Wolfgang Wasser-
mann in honor of his wife
Gerda's "special birthday."
Present at the ceremony was
Ruth Popkin, the National
President of Hadassah; Debbie
Kaplan, the National
Treasurer of Hadassah; and
National Board Members Jane
Zolot and Ruth Kaslove; pro-
minent Hadassah leaders of
Broward County in Israel to
celebrate Hadassah's 75th an-
niversary; and members of the
staff of Hadassah.
Mrs. Popkin told those pre-
sent that Mr. Wassermann had
been keen to celebrate his
wife's "special birthday" with
a gift to Hadassah. "Thank
you for making Hadassah the
recipient and expression of
your love and devotion to each
other," she said.
Haya Levy, Director of the
Speech and Hearing Unit in
Hadassah, told those present
that the Hadassah Unit was
known internationally because
it had developed new techni-
ques for the early detection of
hearing disability in newborn
infants as well as new early in-
tervention techniques. In addi-
tion, more than 6,000 patients
came for speech and hearing
evaluation each year.
Marian Lewin-Epstein,
Donor Recognition Chairman
of the Hadassah Council in
Israel, who presided over the
ceremony, told the Wasser-
manns how important the
soundproof rooms they were
dedicating are to the
thousands of Jerusalemites
who are tested in the Unit each
Replying, Mr. Wassermann
said: "This special gift for my
wife's birthday could only go
to the Hadassah Hospital, an
institution that cares for
human beings in Jerusalem,
the eternal capital of the
Jewish people."
Prayers were recited by
Hadassah Hospital Chaplain
Rabbi Yaakov Rakovsky.
At the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical
Center in Jerusalem, two soundproof rooms
for the Audiology Department are dedicated
by Mr. Wolfgang Wassermann, ofHallandale,
in honor of his wife Gerda's "special birth-
day." In the picture, Wolfgang Wassermann

peace and self-determination."
But he made clear that West
Germany and Israel differ on
approaches to Middle East
Bonn strongly supports an
international conference to
resolve the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, the Chancellor said. "We
welcome the fact that the idea
of an international negotiating
forum is gaining increasing ac-
ceptance in Israel. The posi-
tions are still far apart, but
there are encouraging signs,"
he said.
He also reiterated Bonn's
long-standing support for the
right of Palestinians to self-
HERZOG, responding, said
Israel's realities were all too
often poorly received. He cited
the participation of Israeli
Arabs in the political process,
the daily contacts between
Israelis and Egyptians and the
heavy traffic between Jordan
and Israel over the Jordan
River bridges.
Alluding to possible West
German softness on interna-
tional terrorism, Herzog warn-
ed: "Terrorists are united.
Their victims are not. Ter-
rorists know no boundaries
nor do they respect sovereign-
ty. Israel will not compromise
with terrorists and will hit at
the sources of international
terrorism, of which the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion is a major element.'
Herzog and Kohl met
privately before the luncheon.
Their meeting was described
by both Israeli and German
sources as "very construc-
tive," though differences re-
main on the peace issue and
on possible West German arms
sales to Arab countries still
technically in a state of war
with Israel.

or not."
Shamir added that "There is
great exaggeration in presen-
ting the entire trip (by Peres)
as if it were intended for this
issue." Last Saturday night
(Apr. 4), before Peres depar-
ture for Madrid, Shamir startl-
ed observers here by stating
publicly that he hoped the
Foreign Minister would "not
succeed" in his mission.
Likud Minister-Without-
Portfolio Moshe Arens accused
Peres of making his own
foreign policy. "He should
realize that under our system
of government, ministers must
act in accordance with govern-
ment policies," Arens said.
Laborite Minister Ezer
Weizman, who was acting
Foreign Minister in Peres'
absence, said the unity govern-
ment should dissolve itself im-
mediately because of irrecon-
cilable differences between its
partners and seek a new man-
date from the electorate.
"HOW MUCH longer
should we go on with the main
parties following divergent
paths on the question of peace
ui the Middle East?" Weizman
asked at a meeting with
reporters in Nazareth. But
Finance Minister Moshe
Nissim of Likud told Israel
Radio that the differences over
an international conference
were not sufficient reason to
break up the government.

Israel's S. Africa Ties
Come Under U.S. Jewish Scrutiny
NEW YORK American
Jewish leaders have begun
to grapple with the uncom-
fortable issue of Israel's
military trade with South
Africa, a subject obscured
by strict secrecy, distortion
by Israel's enemies and by
the minuscule amount of
factual information actually
Few governments like to
discuss their military exchange
with the racist regime of South
Africa despite evidence that
military exchanges with Western
countries continue on some levels
while tapering off in past months.
Israel is no different. With the
government facing intense
pressure from the U.S. Congress
and from American Jews to cease
military trade with South Africa,
there is little said publicly on the
AT LEAST part of the
American Jewish leadership has
taken an active role in the anti-
apartheid movement in this coun-
try, on the picket lines and in
divestment campaigns. Some
even risked arrest for civil disobe-
dience at South African installa-
tions throughout the country. But
many Jewish leaders have chosen
to remain silent or at least
discreet about Israel's military
trade with South Africa.
"The inconsistency is troubling
American Jews," Allan Kagedan,
an American Jewish Committee
policy analyst said. "On the one
hand, they are anti-apartheid
morally. On the other hand, they
support Israel who sells arms to
South Africa. But no one is willing
to publicly defend Israel arms
sales to South Africa."
A sampling by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency of American
Jewish leadership revealed a real
reluctance to discuss openly
and sometimes on the record
what they know of Israel's
military trade with South Africa.
But the same leaders indicated
that they have told the Israeli of-
ficials privately that they should
not ignore the growing anti-
apartheid sentiment in the
American public and Congress
and should not lag too far behind
the pro-sanction mood of Western
AMERICAN Jewish leaders
emphasized the privacy of Israel's
security, survival and sovereignty
to decide with whom and what it
trades. On the other hand, the
same leaders said they feel it is in-
cumbent upon them to let Israel
know that its South African policy
is affecting them negatively in
their efforts to deal with other
domestic and foreign issues.
A pervasive argument by some
Jewish leaders agaunst the trade
is that Israel's military relations
with South Africa are increasingly
straining Jewish-Black relations
in this country and providing an
excellent excuse for black African
countries not to resume relations
with Israel.
Elan Steinberg, World Jewish
Congress executive director, said
although the military trade has
been distorted, it has affected at-
titudes in the anti-apartheid com-
munity. "There is a perception
that Jews and Israel are not in the
forefront of anti-apartheid," he
The distortion of and dispropor-
tionate attention focussed on
Israel's trade with South Africa
was one of the great propaganda
coups of Israel's enemies in the
past decade. American Jewish of-
ficials are sensitive to the singling
out of Israel for criticism when
other Western, Arab and Soviet-
bloc countries provide far more
valuable and critical support for
the South African regime.
ON APRIL 1, the State Depart-
ment is scheduled to submit a
report to the President containing
an account of countries receiving
U.S. foreign aid which are supply-
ing military materiel to South
Africa. Countries which continue
the military exchanges could risk
forfeiting their U.S. foreign aid,
in Israel's case $1.8 billion. One
Israeli expert on South Africa,
who asked not to be identifeid,
said the Congressional legislation
has turned Israel's military rela-
tions with South Africa from a
moral issue to a realpolitik issue.
Malcolm Hoenlien, executive
director of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, was among
other officials who said they are
concerned that this legislation has
singled out Israel and one or two
other countries and would effec-
tively overlook the major trading
partners of South Africa who are
also U.S. Allies.
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum,
AJCommittee director of interna-
tional affairs, said, "I hope the
report to the President will give
an overview which will talk about
the UK, Soviet Union, Japan and
others to keep it in perspective.
Israel is not the primary culprit in
sustaining South Africa."
Kagedan said the legislation is un-
fair because it would not poten-
tially hurt 20 other countries
which sell much more to South
KAGEDAN, Tanenbaum and
others said they believe a large
volume of weapons is flowing
from the West to South Africa
despite the mostly "symbolic'
Western arms embargo. "The
same standard should apply to
Israel as everyone else, no more,
no less," Tanenbaum said.
Kagedan said, "There is a sense
on the part of Israelis that
Western nations are immensely
hypocritical on sanctions."
Within Israel, the policy on

and the military industrial com-
plex for sources of foreign income.
By 1981, Agenda noted, Israel's
arms exports rose to $1.3 billion
or 40 percent of Irael's exports.
This reliance, according to Agen-
da, partners Israel with
repressive regimes around the
military trade with South Africa
has been under review for about
six months. Although a small
group of intellectuals headed by
Yossi Beilin (Labor), political
director general of the Foreign
Ministry, argue the trade is
counterproductive foreign policy,
the Israeli expert said the majori-
ty still advocates continuing the
military trade.
The advocates of trade argue
that it brings in much needed
foreign capital and provides
valuable research and develop-
ment opoortunitie8 for Israel.
Many also argue tha severing rela-
tions with Pretoria could threaten
the security of South Africa's
119,000 Jews.
There are also reports that
South Africa has threatened to
reveal the details of the coopera-
tion if Israel severs relations,
"there is tremendous resentment
in Israel over what is seen as at-
tempts to blackmail and
manipulate Israel South
Africa revels in pointing out the
similarities between itself and
Israel," the Israeli expert said.
KAGEDAN said, "The South
African government has an in-
terest in projecting itself
associated with Israel. It helps
(Prime Minister Pieter Willem)
Botha to appear to the U.S. as
another Israel."
One expert said the official
military transfers from Israel to
South Africa are now virtually
non-existent. But according to
some sources, private arms
dealers have taken up the slack of
arms sales and some forms of
military trade continue. Israel's
stated position is that it is adher-
ing to the 1977 United Nations
arms embargo. Although press
reports and information from
trade monitoring agencies on the
military exchanges have never
been confirmed by Israel and are
difficult to corroborate, experts
interviewed by the JTA said there
are four major areas of military
exchanges between the two

March 1985, the Washington Post
reported that South Africa bought
up to 35 percent of Israel's $1
billion per year arms exports.
Israelis training South

sophisticated mid-air refueling

changes have been reported on
frequently but never confirmed.
THE ISRAELI expert said
there is clearly a dramatic reduc-
tion of the Israel-South Africa
conventional arms trade in the
past decade as a result of signifi-
cant development of South
Africa's domestic arms industry
and the availability of new
markets to the Israelis.
THE MOST outspoken op-
ponents of the military trade in
the American Jewish community
come from the New Jewish Agen-
da (NJA). In a draft of a position
paper. Agenda attributed the
trade relationship to Israel's
dependence on military exports
But tha Agenda paper also
stated repeatedly that Israel
should not be singled out for
criticism among South Africa's
other major trading partners.
Rabbi Balfour Brickner, vice
president of the American Israel
Civil Liberties Coalition and
spiritual leader of the Stephen
Wise Free Synagogue in New
York, said the trade with South
Africa is "a source of embarrass-
ment for American Jews which is
causing them to silently walk
away from their heretofore un-
qualified support for Israel."
Israel should have halted the
military exchanges long ago,
Brickner said. But pressure from
American Jews was not enough.
Only pressure from Congress will
instigate a change in Israel's
South Africa policy, he said.
"I DON'T THINK the trade is
in Israel's best interest,"Brickner
said. "Interest has to be measured
in terms other than dollars.
Israel's South Africa policy could
erode American Jewish support
for Israel."

'Never Give Up/
Shultz Says At Seder
At a Seder with refuseniks in Moscow on
Monday, wearing a white yarmulke,
Secretary of State Shultz encouraged Rus-
sian Jews that they should "never give up,
never give up" in their quest for emigration
to freedom. The encouragement is welcome,
but there can be little hope in it all by itself.
Yes, Mr. Shultz did tackle the dissident
issue with Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze just as soon as the two men
sat down to talk. But no one would imagine
that it was central to their discucssion.
A lot of things peripheral to whether or
not Jews in significant numbers will be per-
mitted to leave the Soviet Union are, from
an outsider's point of view, far more impor-
tant. If the United States and the Soviet
Union can come to an understanding on
them first, then it is also possible that a
significantly large Jewish exodus will follow.
Arms Control Priority
But it does not work the other way
around. Failure to solve the other issues
now separating Washington and Moscow
will mean that no such exodus is likely to oc-
cur at all.
For one thing, there is arms control. For
example, the Soviets have long held an ad-
vantage in short-range missiles those
missiles capable of operation within a 300 to
600-mile range. In fact, the United States
has no such arsenal at all.
Even if Shultz and Gorbachev were able to
arrive at a meeting of minds on all other
aspects of the arms race, which is in itself
highly unlikely, it can not be expected that
the United States would give in to the
Soviets that their advantage in short-range
missiles be frozen, for it is precisely these
missiles that would be critical in the defense
of Europe given a final understanding on the
Reagan Administration's insistence on the
zero option plan.
This is, however, only one consideration
that will continue as a sticking point
whether or not Mr. Shultz and Mr. Shevard-
nadze arrive at same mutually agreeable
arms control understanding in their talks.
The other is the highly-charged American
outrage over the bugging of the U.S. Em-
bassy in Moscow. The amount of emotion in-
vested in this outrage is embarrassing to
anyone who knows anything about the es-
pionage practices common to the nations of
the world.
Clearly, the Reagan Administration has
manufactured the incident in order to push
the Iran-contra story off the front pages.
But absurd or not, our problems with the
Soviets in their mania for secrecy outdo
even Mr. Reagan's mania in this, and the
anger over what has been discovered at the
U.S. Embassy not only Russian bugging
devices but charges of espionage against
U.S. Marines stationed there to protect it
may well break the back of Mr. Shultz's
frustration in the arms control standoff and
result in another failed meeting. Given such
an agenda, it would be a fantasy to expect
concomitant Soviet announcements about
Jewish emigration in massive numbers.
Israel's Mixed Signals
These considerations apart, there is Israel
itself. Last week in Madrid, Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres was told by the
Spanish Foreign Minister that it is impossi-
ble for Spain to know just where Israel
stands on peace in the Middle East, par-
ticularly an international conference that
would include Israel, the Arabs except for
the PL0, just which ones, no one says and
the five permanent members of the United
Nations Security Council.
On Peres' way to Madrid, Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir said he hoped Peres would
fail, at the same time declaring that Gaza
and the West Bank would remain Israeli ter-
ritory "forever."
Abroad, Peres says he's for a conference.
At home, he loads his stand with conditions.
This week, it seems as if the Unity Govern-
ment coalition is doomed. Both Labor
(Peres) and Likud (Shamir) are predicting
victory at the polls in the event of an early
national election. No wonder the Spanish
diplomat was confused.
But it is essential that the confusion be
cleared up if sense is to be made of Israeli
policy in the future. For an international
conference would spell the participation of
China and the Soviet Union. Even Mr. Peres
vows that one of his conditions for such a
conference would be the resumption of
diplomatic relations with the Soviets and the
establishment for the first time of such rela-
tions with the Chinese, who have never in
the past recognized Israel.
Should Israel refuse such a conference, as
Mr. Shamir threatens, then is it conceivable
that a solid Jewish emigration from the
Soviet Union would resume forthwith, the
U.S.-Soviet struggle on the arms issue
apart? Mr. Shultz s plea to the refuseniks at
their Seder on Monday to "never give up,
uxaom fo**H cxrr
never give up," is noble indeed. But the suc-
cessful resolution of so many seemingly
unrelated questions is necessary well before
anybody can even begin to consider the odds
on the outcome of his entreaty that hope for
Soviet Jewry's future must remain
Examining Markets
Weapons Needs Created An Industry
If you are building a trade
relationship in the 1980's, you
have to examine available
markets. And if you have any
sense of what is going on in the
world at all, you have to con-
clude that the only way truly
to build a trade business is to
examine the international
market opportunities.
So, if you are a nation as op-
Ksed to an individual, you
ve to take it one step fur-
ther. For nations, unlike in-
dividuals, are possessed of cer-
tain inventories the day they
go in business.
THEY HAVE natural
resources, most of which will
have to be developed. There
are certain skills indiginous to
their populace which must be
exploited. To deviate from this
will bring ruin to a country.
When the United States
began to emerge as a nation, it
found itself able to feed the
populace through mostly sub-
sistance farming. The set-
tlements had begun in the
east, and the soil and water
were able to produce lush
crops in Pennsylvania, parts of
New England and the nor-
thern rim of the south.
It was not until the push
west, where the lands of the
midwest were tamed, that
America could become a farm-
to-market nation and eventual-
ly a world provider of food.
Food, agriculture for export
remains our number one
staple. No one can feed the
world like the United States.
been slower to develop their
natural resources and find
markets for them. The
western powers showed the
Arabs what wealth lay under
their sand, and the seeds of
OPEC were sown. Most na-
tions are not that lucky. They
do not have vast reserves of a
product that simply has to be
sucked out of the ground to
make them wealthy.
The nations of Africa and
Asia, those with the great
natural resources, have been
mercilessly exploited by the
west. Their lands have been
raped, they have been forced
to torn the4r land mass to ex-
port cash crops instead of
developing it to feed their own.
When the colonial powers left,
they left behind a legacy of
poverty, untrained people and
the blueprint for starvation.
Israel has no natural
resources. No coal, no oil, no
vast land areas. The land of
Israel had been decimated by
centuries of misuse by a tran-
sient population with no feel
for the land or its origin, and
with no national zeal to create.
None of that. None until, of
course, the Jewish people
returned to the land.
THEN THE nationalistic
zeal came on in a rush,
agitated from outside and
blown into reality by a world
ready to deny the Jewish peo-
ple their homeland once again.
But the Jewish people of the
new-born state had other
ideas. They were to take their
land and develop it into a
viable place to live, to cultivate
and eventually to create world
For natural resources, they
had the brains of their people.
So, from this they developed
agricultural techniques which
caused the desert to bloom.
They created an export
market in fruits, flowers and
vegetables that does business
in Europe against land and
food five times the abundance
of the tiny nation.
In High-Tech, they have
created machines and
technology that staggers the
imagination. They have
developed ideas for their own
survival and for export.
IN THIS time, they have
had to fight a war on an
average of every eight years.
They have won them all. It
hasn't been easy. Early on, the
world decided that they would
not sell Israel the weapons so
vital to its defense against the
hostile neighbors who kept
fomenting these wars.
Unable to obtain the needed
merchandise of war, the dead-
ly products that would allow
her to continue to live, Israel
did what she had done with her
land. It created its own in-
dustry. It developed a group of
weapons specifically designed
for the warfare into which it
was forced.
These were weapons that
were light and portable, so
that they could be moved easi-
ly to wherever they were to be
threatened. Simple weapons,
so that a basically civilian
reserve force could operate
them on little training.
Weapons with great durabili-
ty, because it would not have
the time or the money to
stockpile vast amounts of
ISRAEL HAS survived. The
world has taken note. And
while much of the heavy duty
weaponry comes from the
United States most of it im-
proved by Israel after its ar-
rival much of it continues to
be produced domestically. The
weapons and systems are good
ones among the best in the
world. A world which loves
arms. A world which has an
absolutely insatiable appetite
for more and better weapons.
So, into this arena, this in-
credible international
marketplace, Israel has
jumped with both feet. It has
simply followed the lead of all
nations. It has examined possi-
ble markets for its goods and
ships that which will sell to
those who would buy. It did
not create the arms business.
It did not even get into it
necessarily by choice. But
there it is.

Jordan Minister Repeats Belief
In Int'l. Confab Including UN
Jordan's Prime Minister Zeid
Rifai stressed here that Jordan
still views an international
conference that includes the
five permanent members of
the United Nations Security
Council as a means to
negotiate Middle East peace.
"We're not talking about
peace between Jordan and
Israel," Rifai said after he and
Foreign Minister Taher Masri
met with Secretary of State
George Shultz at the State
Department last week. "We're
talking about a comprehensive
settlement of the Arab-Israeli
HE SAID this includes the
problem of the Golan Heights
with Syria, southern Lebanon
and the Palestinian problem
"which is at the core of the
Middle East conflict."
Rifai was apparently giving
a different explanation for Jor-
dan's need for a peace con-
ference than that stated by
King Hussein since last year
when he said on a visit to
Washington that he wanted an
international conference as an
"umbrella" for negotiations
with Israel.
Shultz indicated, as he did
when he met with Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir here
last month, that the U.S. is
considering an international
conference if it would lead to
direct negotiations. He stress-
ed that it is up to the parties
themselves to agree on the
method of negotiations.
Shultz praised King Hussein
for his efforts to improve the
economic situation in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. He said
the U.S. is seeking a way to
provide an extra $10-$30
million for this effort.

Cautious Reaction
To Rumors of Renewed Emigration
Israel's Need for War Weapons
Opened New Int'l. Industry
Israeli officials and Kremlin-
watchers reacted cautiously
to reports that the Soviet
Union may be prepared to
permit the emigration of
some 12,000 Jews over the
next 9-12 months and that
they will be able to fly from
Moscow to Tel Aviv, via
Rumania, by-passing the
traditional transit point in
Sources at the Prime
Minister's Office insisted that
nothing had been finalized and
observed that the number of
visas allegedly promised by the
Soviet authorities was tiny
compared to the 400,000 Jews
who are reported to be seeking
AT THE Foreign Ministry,
however, officials stressed
that every Jew allowed to
leave the Soviet Union is an
achievement. While hopeful
that changes in emigration
policy may be on the way, the
officials cautioned that the
reports which surfaced in New
York Sunday and Monday
have not been confirmed.
President Chaim Herzog,
prior to leaving on an official
visit to Switzerland and West
Germany, was optimistic. He
said reports from Moscow,
together with other indica-
tions, pointed to a real change
in Soviet attitude for which
Israel should be prepared.
A spokesman for Premier
Yitzhak Shamir flatly rejected
suggestions of a connection
between Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev's apparent new
policies and Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres' support for an interna-
tional conference on Middle
East peace in which the Soviet
Union would participate.
"Definitely not," the
spokesman said, adding that
the Premier remains
unalterably opposed to an in-
ternational conference.
said the main achievement of
talks held in Moscow between
Western Jewish leaders and
ranking Soviet officials was
the institution of flights to
Israel via Rumania. Rabbi Ar-
thur Schneier, president of the
Folk Honored
Twenty-seven actors,
playwrights, directors, com-
posers, set designers and
choreographers in the Yiddish

the Congress for Jewish

winners who received a
statuette of the late Abraham
Goldf&den, father of modern
Yiddish theater included
Jackie Mason, star of "The
World According to Me," and
some of the stars of "The
Stranger's Return,"
"L'Chaim," "Kvetch,"
"Flowering Peach," "Rags"
and "The Rise of David Levin-
sky." Polish Consul General
Andrez Alszowja accepted a
citation for the Yiddish State
Theater of Poland.
Appeal of Conscience Founda-
tion, told the Jewish
Telegraphic in New York that
he had negotiated the new pro-
cedure last month in Moscow
and Bucharest.
The Foreign Ministry cited
talks held in Moscow by Edgar
Bronfman, president of the
World Jewish Congress, and
Morris Abram chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations and of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Abram told the JTA that
they had a "candid discussion
on the subject of Soviet Jews
in all of its aspects" with
Soviet officials and were op-
timistic. He added that
"events of the next few mon-
ths will tell whether the op-
timistic mood in which we
returned is justified."
According to Schneier, the
flight via Rumania will bring
Soviet Jews to Israel in
greater numbers. They will not
be able to obtain U.S. visas as
they have done in Vienna until
now. An estimated 80 percent
of Jews leaving the USSR via
Vienna have opted to go to the
U.S. rather than Israel
although they carry Israeli

Those moralists who wring
their hands at a Jewish state
trading in guns had better look
to the world first. To eschew

Israel severely in world

domestically, would ensure the
demise of the state.
LET US remember the arms
embargoes on Israel. Let us
remember the weapons with
which the Israelis were forced
to fight for independence and
survival. So, today, they are
arms builders to the world. It
is only natural that the United
States would turn to them in
an in-kind of arms deal.
Now, as the moralists are
gathering on the horizon to
trash Israel again, let us
remember that it was born in-
to an imperfect world.
Israel will work to make that
world a bit more perfect, but in
order to do that, it has to be
here. In that case, the Uzi

Ties 'Never Closer'
Says Rosenne on Eve of U.S. Exit
Meir Rosenne, who in
June will return to Israel
after four years as Am-
bassador to the United
States, maintained last
week that relations between
Israel and the U.S. "have
never been closer" despite
the Pollard spy case.
The discovery that Jonathan
Pollard, a civilian Navy in-
telligence analyst, was spying
for Israel will not have a "long-
lasting effect" on relations,
Rosenne said in response to
auestions at a luncheon of the
verseas Writers, an
organization of diplomatic
HOWEVER, he stressed
this will be so only if those in-
volved in the espionage opera-
tion are uncovered and the
U.S. is convinced that the
operation was unauthorized.
Rosenne noted that 15 mon-
ths ago, when Pollard was ar-
rested, many were not con-
vinced that it was unauthoriz-
ed, but now everyone knows
that "unauthorized operations
may take place sometimes."
This was an apparent
reference to the Iran-Contra
The Ambassador said that
Israel's cooperation with the
U.S. in the Pollard case has
been "unprecedented." In
discussing the close relations
between the U.S. and Israel,
Rosenne said it was a two-way
street. He noted that while
Israel receives a great deal of
financial aid from the U.S.
$3 billion in grants for
economic and military aid this
year the U.S. knows Israel
is a reliable ally which has pro-
vided it with much technical in-
formation from captured
Soviet equipment over the
AT THE same time, "there
can be no identity of views on
foreign policy between Israel
and the United States,"
Rosenne stressed. He explain-
ed that the U.S. is a global
power while Israel is a small
country that since its existence
has been surrounded by coun-
tries that want to destroy it as
well as constant acts of ter-
rorism against Israelis at home
and abroad.
The envoy, who plans to
return to Jerusalem for
another post with the Foreign
Ministry, also discussed the
peace process, Soviet Jewry
and relations with the USSR,
South Africa and Israel's rela-
tions with American Jews.
"We are very much in-
terested to sign a peace treaty
with all the Arab countries,
Rosenne said. "We are ready
to start negotiations with any
Arab country that is ready to
do likewise.' He added that
anytime Jordan is ready to
negotiate, so is Israel "without
any preconditions."
But when he was asked
about Jordan's demands for an
international conference,
Rosenne said he could not
discuss this since the Israeli
unity government is divided
about this issue.
ASKED AT'HJT President
Carter's statement after his
recent meeting with Syrian
President Hafez Assad that
Syria is ready to negotiate
with Israel through an interna-
tional conference, Rosenne
pointed to the memoirs of
former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger.
He noted that Kissinger
reported that he had a long
discussion with Assad in 1974
in which they agreed about
everything for a Geneva con-
ference. But when Kissinger
asked Assad what date he
preferred, Assad said it did not
matter, since he would not
Rosenne also reiterated the
Israeli position that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion cannot participate in any
peace negotiations.
ASKED FOR his personal
views, Rosenne said the Camp
David Accords, signed in 1978,
"can be the basis" for advanc-
ing the peace process because
it provides for negotiations
between Israel, Egypt, Jordan
and Palestinians to negotiate
"the future status of the
He said if the accords had
not been condemned by all the
Arab countries the five-year
autonomy period for the West
Bank and Gaza would now be
over, as well as the period,
three years after autonomy
started in which the negotia-
tions were to have begun.
Rosenne, who was Am-
bassador to France before
coming to Washington, said
part of the blame for this
failure is due to the West
European countries which con-
demned the Camp David
ed the U.S. for its efforts in
the peace process but stressed
that "the United States cannot
replace any Arab state in the
peace process." He said "any
attempt to replace the parties
will be counterproductive."
Ambassador Rosenne
He noted that the major dif-
ferences between Israel and
the U.S. have arisen when
there has been a peace pro-
posal that did not include the
Arabs as one of the
Rosenne stressed that Israel
wants the U.S. to have good
relations with the Arab coun-
tries, but not to supply them
with weapons. "Israel is op-
posed to any sale of weapons
to any country that is in a state
of war with Israel," he said.
On Israel's relations with the
Soviet Union, Rosenne would
only say that a Soviet delega-
tion is expected in Israel soon
and "we hope that an Israeli
delegation will be able to go to
the Soviet Union in the
HE SAID that it was still
unclear whether there has
been any change in Soviet
emigration policies. He said
there are 380,000 Jews, in-
cluding 11,000 multiple
refuseniks, who have applied
to leave the USSR.
On South Africa, Rosenne
stressed that Israel has always
opposed apartheid. He said
Israel accepted the 1977 UN
Security Council resolution
barring any arms sales to
South Africa, but like other
countries interpreted this to
mean existing contracts would
be honored.
He added that Israel has a
special obligation to the
120,000 Jews in South Africa,
who have always supported
Israel. He noted that many
South African Jews have been
jailed in the struggle against
Rosenne said that the "link"
between Israel and Jews in the
U.S. and elsewhere is firm. He
said American Jews have a
right to criticize Israel, but on-
ly Israel is responsible for its
own security.

Incidents Between Blacks,
Hasidim Fire Brooklyn Tension
Police in the Crown Heights
section of Brooklyn "are doing
their utmost to ensure that it
will be a comfortable, peaceful
summer" following tensions
which have been heightened
there in recent weeks over in-
cidents between blacks and
Hasidim, according to a police
spokesman who spoke to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
following a march Saturday by
black protesters through the
Crown Heights neighborhood.
Problems in Crown Heights
reached a crescendo because of
a firebombing Feb. 26 of a
black woman's house in the
neighborhood, in which a
witness claimed to have seen
two white men dressed in what
looked like Hasidic garb flee-
ing the scene. The woman
whose home was firebombed
claimed to have heard them
say, "Burn, burn, burn,"
before allegedly vanishing into
the dormitory of a nearby
POLICE, the spokesman
said, are being educated there
on the "ethnic awareness of
both groups," and there is con-
stant communication between
the police community affairs
department and community
clergy and political leaders of
Crown Heights, he said.
The local clergy informed
their congregants not to par-
ticipate in Saturday's march,
the spokesman said. The local
Hasidic leaders cooperated
with the police in ensuring that
the masses of Hasidim would
not be lined up along the route
of the demonstration.
The police were notified of
plans for the march over two
weeks ago at a church meeting
called by a local black political
figure, according to the police
the Brooklyn neighborhood
that is home to the world head-
quarters of the Chabad
Lubavitch movement rebutted
on Sunday recent media ac-
counts of ethnic tensions in
their community, which focus-
ed on a march on Saturday
afternoon of blacks through
the streets of the ethnically
mixed neighborhood.
Although the number of pro-
testers in Saturday's march
was estimated to be between
400-500, police said the
number varied between 200
and 500 depending on the time
of the march. One police
spokesman said it was difficult
to give an exact number of
those joining the protesters, as
it kept changing as the mar-
chers swung to different
streets and passersby or
residents of the houses along
the route joined them or left.
The spokesman in the police
community affairs department
said there is definitely tension
in the area on both sides, ad-
ding that "the complaints that
we get in the police depart-
ment are exactly the same
from both sides of the fence."
Crown Heights is a racially,
ethnically mixed neighborhood
where it is estimated that
presently about only 10 per-
cent of the neighborhood is
Jewish. The Lubavitcher
Hasidim have lived in the
neighborhood since the early
1940's, when the Lubavitcher
Rebbe, Menachem Schneer-
son, came there from Europe.
THERE ARE also small
numbers of other Hasidic
groups living in the
neighborhood, although the
Chabad Lubavitch Hasidim
outnumber them in the Jewish

York officers lined the route

ment. We've urged the Hasidic

police department and patrol
their own area. They'd have
radio contact with the police.

majority are independent.

and a police helicopter hovered
slowly above, as the
demonstrators staged a noisy
but peaceful march Saturday
in response to what they claim
is police bias toward the
Jewish community.
Chanting "No Justice, No
Peace!" the demonstrators
drew attention to a private
security patrol run by the
Crown Heights Jewish Com-
munity Council, as well as to
the firebombing, but enlarged
their claims to embrace a host
of issues in the torn Brooklyn
community. Among the
placards carried was a banner
saying "We Lost, We Lost,
We Lost," referring to the
deaths of several black and
Hispanic individuals killed in
what they claim are incidents
of police aggression.
THE JEWISH community,
on the other hand, has pro-
tested the deaths of two
Hasidim in what appears to
have been ethnically-
motivated incidents.
Black anger has been
directed at the private security
force run by the Lubavitch
community, which blacks claim
is a vigilante group. It is com-
posed of only Hasidic
members, "Lubavitch-paid,
not trained by police, and per-
form to the best of their abili-
ty, sometimes crossing over
what might be called the valid
legalities," the police
spokesman said.
"They've made arrests, held
people at times," the
spokesman said, adding that
"some have been valid, some
have been inappropriate. In
this precinct, we have an
organized civilian patrol

Slepak Ends 17-Day Fast
Friday, April 24, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 11
"Do not forget our fight,
that is the message to all no
matter what is your
This was the appeal made by
Alexander Slepak Sunday as
he ended a 17-day fast on the
steps of the Capitol in support
of the struggle of his parents,
Vladimir and Maria Slepak,
and other Jews to leave the
Soviet Union.
Slepak, ended his fast at a
ceremony on the Capitol steps,
one day before the 17th an-
niversary of his parents' ap-
plication to emigrate from the
USSR. He lost 20 pounds dur-
ing the fast.
MORE THAN 100 persons
attended the ceremony and
heard similar appeals from
Elie Wiesel, the writer and
Nobel Peace Laureate; Jeanne
Kirkpatrick, former United
States Ambassador to the
Soviet Union; and represen-
tatives of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ), the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews, and the U.S.
Committee to Free Vladimir
They stood behind a banner
which quoted Vladimir Slepak
as saying: "If you turn your
eyes from us, even for a mo-
ment, we will cease to exist."
Wiesel, a Holocaust sur-
vivor, stressed that "nothing
is so terrifying to a prisoner or
to an exiled person than to feel
that no one cares."
Slepak, a 35-year-old
medical student at Temple
University, Philadelphia, said
that "with all my heart I want
to believe" in Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev's promises
of democratization and
"glasnost" (openness). But,
"we want the deeds and not
the words," he declared.
HE NOTED that his father,
who had also fasted in front of
the Soviet Presidium in
Moscow, was attacked by
Soviet police Saturday and
told he was under house arrest
and would be beaten and ar-
rested if he tried to leave his
apartment. But on Sunday, he
was allowed to leave the
The elder Slepaks are
scheduled to attend a seder at
the U.S. Embassy in Moscow
Monday night where they are
expected to meet with
Secretary of State George
Shultz. The Secretary visited
briefly with Alexander Slepak
last week and took pictures of
his two children to show the
Slepaks who have never seen
their grandchildren.
Kirkpatrick said that "We
would be concerned with the
Slepaks if they were the only
Soviet citizens denied their
rights... They are not unique.
SHE SAID glasnost "has
still not altered the plight of
the Jewish community" which
is denied Jewish schools and
Jewish history books and the
right to freely practice its
religion. She said the Soviet
Union still imprisons Hebrew
teachers, attacks Zionism and
continues to lead the effort in
international forums to brand
Zionism as racism.
"If it (the Soviet Union) uses
its great force against its own
citizens how can we
possibly expect that it will not
use that force against any peo-
ple, any country that is weaker
than it," she said. She added

that no one who is "concern-
ed" about peace and arms con-
trol cannot be concerned about
the Soviet violations of human
ecutive director of the UCSJ,
also noted that "a nation that
makes war on its innocent
citizens, a nation that cannot
keep its solemn international
agreements even in human
rights, can hardly be trusted to
keep any other kind of agree-
ment. So it is a measure of how
fearful our own society can
become when we hear expres-
sions of hope and relief based
only ojj soothing Soviet pro-
paganda and the release of a
handful of our enslaved
He stressed that while there
is talk of openness, "restric-
tions on the right to emigrate
are ominously being
Kills Woman
terrorist firebomb which killed
an Israeli woman and severely
burned her husband, their
three children and a family
friend in their car on a road in
the West Bank Saturday night
raised tensions to a fever pitch
between Jewish settlers and
the local Arab population. It
triggered a new confrontation
between settlers and security
forces, with possible political
repercussions for the shaky
Labor-Likud unity coalition
The victims were Ofra
Moses, 35, who was trapped in
the car and burned to death;
her husband, Avraham, 37;
their children, Tal, 5, Adi, 8,
and Nir, 14; and their friend,
Yosef Lallo, 14, all of whom
were hospitalized with first-
degree burns.
The bomb struck the car on
the way from the Moses' home
settlement of alphe-Menashe
to Petach Tikva. Shortly after-
wards, furious Jewish settlers
descended on the largest near-
by Arab town, Kalkilya,
smashing windows and
vehicles, stoning the mayor's
home and setting fire in fields
and orchards. The settlers
justified their attack on
grounds that the security
forces failed to protect Jews.
A curfew was imposed on
Kalkilya, Hable and another
small village in the area Satur-
day night and remained in ef-
fect until late Sunday after-
noon when Ofra Moses was
buried in Petach Tikva.
Three rows of citrus trees
were uprooted by military
bulldozers Sunday on the road
where the attack took place.
The official reason given was
to clear away a possible am-
bush site. The citrus grove was
apparently owned by Arabs.
Barnes Honored
United Israel Appeal honored
former Rep. Michael Barnes of
Maryland at its annual
meeting April 7. Barnes was

gress in helping to obtain near-

tlement grants from the U.S.
