The three-day Arab summit
meeting in Amman ended last
Wednesday in a clear-cut
political victory for its host,
King Hussein of Jordan.
The Hashemite monarch,
who has never been accused of
audacity in expressing
moderate views among his
peers, this time placed on the
table his plans for an interna-
tional peace conference as an
instrumentality for negotia-
tions with Israel.
And he won endorsement for
it, even the grudging approval
of President Hafez Assad of
Syria, long a bitter foe of any
approach to peace with Israel
and until recently one of Hus-
sein's severest critics.
The king was able to claim at
the end of the summit that it
had brought to the Arabs unity
of "word, stand and goal." In-
deed, the participants ex-
hibited a skill rare in inter-
Arab diplomacy of burying, or
at least white-washing, their
traditional differences. Even
such arch-enemies as Assad
and President Saddam Hus-
sein of Iraq exchanged smiles.
Observers may have
wondered beforehand why
Hussein, ruler of a desert
kingdom with serious
economic difficulties, took the
risk of holding a summit that
may well have been a dismal
failure, and of raising such
delicate issues as an interna-
tional peace conference. Had
the gambit failed, his ability
for diplomatic maneuvering
would have been greatly

in the timing. The participants

The stream of anguished let-
ters, telegrams and telephone
calls pours in every day from
all over the world. Some days,
there are as few as ten; other
days, as many as 140. Each is a
desperate cry for help from an
AIDS victim in search of a
Some do not bother to write
or call. They simply take the
first available flight to Israel
and turn up at Kaplan Hospital
or the Rokach-Hadassah
Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
"Some are terminal cases,
most are in an advanced stage
of the disease," says Dr.
Yehuda Skornik, of Rokach-
Hadassah. "We have patients
from almost every continent
from Europe, from the United
States and Canada, from
South Africa. And more are
arriving every week."
These life-seekers have
heard from others, or via the
gay press and AIDS informa-
tion networks, of a new, ex-
perimental but highly promis-
ing AIDS treatment called
AL-721, which was developed
at the Weizmann Institute in
Rehovot and which is now be-
ing tested at Kaplan Hospital
and Rokach-Hadassah Medical
AL-721 is a buttery lipid
compound derived from the
humble egg yolk. Patients
spread it on toast or crackers
or they can mix it into a juice

says one doctor, "but we can
fix that").

They are simply sent home
with a supply of AL-721 in
20-gram pots which they keep
in the refrigerator and take
All the Israeli doctors ask is
that patients remain under
close medical supervision and
send them regular clinical
reports for evaluation.
But the efficacy of this total-
ly natural, non-toxic, seeming-
ly simple nutrient is sufficient-
ly dramatic to have generated
a firestorm of hope among peo-
ple who had lost all hope.
Of the 60 AIDS victims who
have been treated with AL-721
over the past year, 48 have
shown a very considerable im-
provement in their general
well-being, sometimes within a
few days of embarking on the
They have lost much of the
lassitude associated with
AIDS, fevers have been reduc-
ed, other symptoms have
diminished. And they have suf-
fered no side effects.
More importantly, clinical
tests show that in the face of
the treatment, the deadly
virus loses much of its "infec-
tivity" in other words, its
power to spread from one cell
to another.
But AL-721 is not "and
please, please be emphatic
about this," says Dr. Skornik,
a cure for AIDS, "there is,
as yet, no cure for AIDS and it
would be wicked and irrespon-
sible to claim otherwise."
Dr. Skornik and his col-
leagues, however, readily, con-.
cede that AL-721 may prove to
be an important breakthrough
in the desperate search for an
effective AIDS treatment.
But the Israeli doctors see
their own work as just one part
of an enormous, fiendishly dif-
ficult jigsaw puzzle.
While the Israeli treatment
reduces the ability of the AIDS
virus to spread, other resear-
chers can now concentrate on
tackling the problem of reviv-
ing the patient's devastated
immune system in order to
combat the myriad ailments
which typically ravage an
AIDS victim.
"It is the same story with all
these dreadful diseases," says
Professor Meir Shinitzky, who
discovered and developed
AL-721 at his Department for
Membrane Research at the
Weizmann Institute. "There is
no single, magic bullet. The
cure, when it comes, will be a
team effort.
"We are encouraged by the
results we have achieved so
far," he says, "bu* we have to
test it on many more patients
before we can evaluate it effec-
tively. I would guess that a
cure, and a vaccination, for
AIDS is still three to ten years
Professor Shinitzky, 42,
stumbled on the AIDS treat-
ment almost by accident. From
the early '80s, he and his
researchers had been working
on a product designed to
restore lost function in aging
tissue, particularly brain
They had discovered that a
lipid compound extracted from
egg yolk reduced the level of
cholesterol in human tissue (as
opposed to cholesterol in the

Jewish Times Jerusalem
bloodstream) and caused a
decrease in the "rigidity" of
cell membranes, which is a
system of the aging of cells.
The AIDS connection came
from a study conducted ten
years ago at the University of
Virginia, where researchers
found that certain viruses need
a high level of cell cholesterol
in order to be infective. The
AIDS (or HIV) virus is one of
"Once we realized that,"
says Professor Shinitzky, "we
decided to concentrate all our
efforts on developing a treat-
ment that would reduce the
cell cholesterol level in AIDS
The initial results were pro-
mising and, inevitably, a world
frantic for a means of dealing
with a threatened AIDS
epidemic seized on the "Israeli
egg yolk treatment." The
stampede of patients began
soon after.
But Professor Shinitzky and
his medical colleagues are
determined that they will not
be stampeded. They cannot
begin to help everyone seeking
their treatment for the simple
reason that supplies of AL-721
which are produced at the
Weizmann Institute are
limited, and Israeli patients
come first.
Moreover, supplies will re-
main limited until the treat-
ment has been thoroughly
tested and evaluated. The
Weizmann Institute has sold
exclusive rights to produce,
develop and market AL-721 to
a Los Angeles-based company,
the Ethigen Corporation (until
recently known as Praxis
The company has obtained
FDA approval for the use of
AL-721 on an experimental
basis and is planning a large-
scale, controlled study on
AIDS victims in the United
States and Israel.
If the results are as good
and early tests indicate that
they will'be AL-721 will be
marketed commercially early
next year.
According to Professor
Shinitzky who has studied at
the University of Illinois in Ur-
bana, the National Institute of
Health in Bethesda, Maryland,
and the Duke University
Medical Center the interna-
tional medical fraternity has so
far shown only cautious in-
terest in the treatment.
"They don't relate to
something so unsophisticated
and simple," he says wryly.
"They prefer something more
abstract, more esoteric, more
elusive than an inexpensive
substance extracted from egg
Dr. Skornik, however,
believes that medical interest
in AL-721 will quicken once
the Israeli research data is
published and the American
trials are completed.
In the meantime, the Israeli
doctors struggle to treat as
many patients as possible
within the limits of their
restricted supplies and
Dr. Skornik, 47, frets about
the fact that for reasons of
scarcity, he is able to treat on-
ly patients in advanced stages
of the disease.
He is anxious to test AL-721
on victims in the early stages
of the disease and, perhaps
even more important, on peo-
ple who are carriers of the
AIDS virus but whose health
has not yet been impaired by
Kaplan Hospital and the
Rokach-Hadassah Medical
Center may not, according to
guidelines laid down by
Israel's Health Ministry,
charge patients a cent for
treatment because AL-721 is
still experimental.
While some patients do
make a donatiop to the AL-721
research program, others, ac-
cording to Professor Shinitzky
"forget even to say thank
So far, Professor Shinitzky
has developed AL-721 for the
ludicrously low sum of $10,000
all from his modest depart-
mental budget and he ad-
mits to a twinge of envy when
he reads about Elizabeth
Taylor and her showbiz
superstar friends raising
millions of dollars for the fight
against AIDS.
But he plods on in the hope
that his AL-721 "baby" might
one day prove to be a vital ele-
ment in the race to head off an
AIDS epidemic. And he still
hopes to return to his
research, now shelved, into ag-
ing and that other scourge of
modern man, drug addiction.
One way or another, Meir
Shinitzky is determined to put
the much-maligned egg yolk
back on the map.
'Mea Culpa' Over Waldheim Nomination
Former Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky of Austria has admit-
ted he erred when he proposed
Kurt Waldheim for the office
of United Nations secretary
general in the early 1970s.
The World Jewish Congress
reports that Kreisky told a
packed lecture audience at a
Vienna concert hall that he
had failed to gather detailed
information about Waldheim's
Nazi past.
Kreisky, a leader of the
Austrian Socialist Party and a
non-practicing Jew, served as
chancellor from 1970-83.
Waldheim was elected presi-
dent of Austria in July 1986,
having served as UN secretary
general from 1972-82.
He hinted that the United
States and the Soviet Union,
which both supported
Waldheim for secretary
general, knew more about his
past than he had.

AIDS In Israel
The great AIDS panic that has swept through most of the
world has not yet reached Israel. But it is probably on the
So far, 40 cases of AIDS have been diagnosed in Israel
and 33 of these victims have died. A further 239 people
have been diagnosed as carriers of AIDS antibodies.
The Israel Health Ministry recently set up a committee to
prevent the spread of AIDS. Among the suggestions so far
are that volunteers from abroad coming to work on kibbut-
zim should be screened for AIDS, as should army con-
scripts and pregnant women.
In swinging Tel Aviv, where AIDS consciousness is
higher than other parts of the country, public health of-
ficials have opened an information hotline and are now
preparing literature and lectures on the subject for local
Haviva Avi-Guy, who holds the city council's public
health portfolio, recently suggested that condom
dispensers be installed in the restrooms of all cafes and
other entertainment spots in the city (condom sales in
Israel doubled from 400,000 packages in 1985 to 800,000
last year, and are expected to double again in 1987).
Avi-Guy's suggestion, however, has so far been stymied
by fierce opposition from three religious council members,
who consider that such a move would represent an endorse-
ment of pre-marital sex and immorality. They also point
out the continued rabbinical ban on the use of condoms.
The council is meanwhile working on a plan to provide
regular AIDS screening for Tel Aviv's 400 known male and
female prostitutes.
According to a 1986 survey of 70 prostitutes who "work"
the city's Tel Baruch beach area, 5 percent of the women
and 20 percent of the men were found to be AIDS carriers
statistics similar to those found in Los Angeles and San
Dr. Donald Silverberg, head of Tel Aviv's Public Health
Department, says only a small percentage of AIDS victims
in Israel are known to have become infected as a result of
drug use.
But this figure, he fears, will grow, creating a major pro-
blem, if AIDS-infected addicts turn to prostitution to sup-
port their drug habit.
A proposed AIDS clinic, however, has raised hackles all
over the city. One proposed site was mysteriously burned
down and neighborhood residents have given loud and clear
expression to their opposition.
Israel's religious community has also shown a growing
concern about the possible spread of AIDS among the
observant. .

AIDS Activism in America
The drugs that have been
manufactured to relieve the
symptoms and pain associated
with the dreaded disease AIDS
come with names such as AZT,
AL-721, DNCB, lentinan,
aerosol pentamidine, fu zheng,
coenzyme Q BHT, naltrexone
and nbavirin.
And while they all have suc-
cess and failure stories attach-
ed to their treatment records,
one thing seems certain; these
drugs are the focus of a wide
range of emotions, not the
least of which are skepticism,
desperation, hope and
frustration. i
"People who have AIDS will
grasp at any straw," said one
Jewish homosexual. "Even if
the supposed cure has not been
perfected. I don't know of any
person who wouldn't be willing
to try something new.
"I know half a dozen gay
people who would be willing to
go anywhere and do anything.
They know their lives are
hanging by a string, and if
they know that the string can
be strenthened to a rope to
hang on to, they'll try just
about anything.
"Also people with AIDS are
usually perfectly willing to be
experiments. They have, of
course, self-saving purposes in
mind, looking for anything
that will help them, whatever
the treatment is. Yes, there is
skepticism, but it's overridden
to try anything at any cost."
According to a San
Francisco-based publication
called AIDS Treatment News,
the great frustration over
AL-721 is that the FDA hasn't
approved it for use yet in this
country, even though it is be-
ing used in Israel. It's no
secret that many gay
Americans have made the trip
to Israel and that many gays in
this country have obtained and
used the drug. Indeed, in one
of its issues, the newsletter re-
counted a story of a gay man
who near death, visited Israel
and returned to the U.S.

Florida Religious School Students
Participating In Poster Contest
Sponsored by
International Kosher Foods and Jewish Life Expo
Students from Florida's religious schools are being given
the opportunity to enter a special poster contest sponsored
by the International Kosher Foods and Jewish Life Expo.
According to Irving I. Silverman, Expo Director and
president of Nancy Neale Enterprises, the contest, named
"Foods and Themes from the Bible" is an excellent way for
youngsters to express their Jewish heritage.
The Expo, being held at the Miami Beach Convention
Center December 4-7, is a total immersion in Jewish life
and culture, and Silverman wants the children, as well as
their parents and teachers, to join together at the Miami
Beach Convention Center to bask in the Yiddishkeit.
"They'll be tasting delicious and different kosher foods,
listening to all kinds of Jewish music, seeing Jewish books
and toys and games. The Expo is the total Jewish learning
experience. It's a wonderful way for youngsters to
demonstrate what they've learnt in class" Silverman says.
An entire section of the show is being set aside to display
kosher foods and Jewish life products from around the
world. Companies from Israel, France, Germany and Den-
mark are scheduled to participate.
Feldheim Publishing and Nefesh Ami have donated
prizes to be awarded to religious schools atended by winn-
ing contestants. The contest is open to students in two
separate categories: 7 to 10 and 11 to 18.
Rabbi Sol Schiff, Executive Vice President of the Rab-
binical Association of Greater Miami says "... At a time
when our young people are looking for excitement in
philosophies alien to Judaism, the Expo will give them an
opportunity to see for themselves the rich selection of
Jewish culture."
For further information regarding the contest, please

Expo, 4400 North Federal Highway, Suite 210-13, Boca
Raton, Florida 33431. You can telephone the Expo toll-free

Presidential Visit Makes Points
Chaim Herzog marked the
first state visit by a president
of Israel to the United States
by reciting the traditional
Jewish prayer of
"shehecheyanu" at a White
House ceremony preceding his
hour-long meeting with Presi-

state for human rights and
humanitarian affairs; Rozanne
Ridgway, assistant secretary
of state for Europe and
Canada; Rep. Dante Fascell
(D., Fla.), chairman of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee; and Sen. Daniel
Moynihan (D., N.Y.).
Theodore Ellenoff, AJCom-
mittee president, said the of-
ficials were highly supportive
of the mobilization plans, and
indicated that the demonstra-
tion should not be "modest."
Fascell showed strong interest
in attending, stating "his pas-
sionate belief in human liber-
ties," Ellenoff said.
The rally, to be held from 1
p.m. to 4 p.m. that Sunday,
will call on the Soviets to per-
mit the emigration of all Jews
who seek it, and to allow those
that want to remain in the
Soviet Union to practice their
religion without reprisal, he
dent Reagan Tuesday.
"At this moment as I stand
here as the president of a coun-
try born of the prayers of a na-
tion over the centuries and a
2,000-year-old struggle
against adversity, and view
this event in true perspective
against the background of our
long history, I cannot but give
expression to the age-old
Jewish prayer," he said.
Herzog then recited in
Hebrew and English, "thanks
to the Almighty for having
kept us alive and maintained
us to reach this time."
The ceremony was held in
the East Room of the White
House because the heavy rain
here precluded the traditional
South Lawn welcome for
foreign heads of state.
Reagan also noted the
"historic" occasion, pointing
out that Israel was observing
its 40th anniversary and
reminding the audience that
the United States was the first
country to extend it diplomatic
Both presidents pointed out
that this occasion coincided
with the anniversary of
Kristallnacht, on Nov. 9 and
10, 1938, when Jewish
synagogues, schools, homes
and stores were attacked by
the Nazis in Germany. Reagan
also spoke of the "obscene"
resolution equating Zionism
with racism adopted by the
United Nations General
Assembly on Nov. 10, 1975.
Reagan observed that in
1938, there was no Israel to
protect Jewish interests, but in
1975, Israel and the Jewish
people were defended at the
United Nations by Herzog,
then its ambassador there, as
well as by the United States
ambassador, who at the time
was Daniel Patrick Moynihan,
now a Democratic U.S.
senator representing New
Later, in an address to a
joint session of both houses of
Congress, Herzog thanked the
American legislators for adop-
ting a resolution urging the
United States to support ef-
forts to get the United Nations
to rescind the "Zionism is
racism" resolution. A similar
resolution was adopted in
Australia before his state visit
Both when Herzog entered
the House of Representatives
chamber and when he finished
his address, he was greeted
with tumultuous applause
from an audience made up of
senators and representatives

Beach-Bred Professor 'Rewrites' Bible
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
IF THE BEST detectives
are the ones who can figure
out 'whodunit' from clues
which have been present all
along, then Biblical scholar
Richard Elliot Friedman, who
has recently written the book,
"Who Wrote The Bible?" may
be one of the best detectives of
all time.
Friedman, a professor of
Hebrew and Comparative
Literature at the University of
California at San Diego, has
re-examined the Bible, which,
according to Jewish tradition
was written by Moses, and, ac-
cording to popular scholarly
theory, was written and edited
by some four different sources.
Scholars have long pointed
to clues in the Bible which sug-
gest an author other than
Moses descriptions of
events which Moses could not
have described, such as his
death, the presence of
"doublets," or two different
versions of the same story, as
in the beginning of Genesis,
and the use of different names
for God in the different
Other scholars have
restricted themselves to
postulating a writer in ancient
Israel, (the 'E' author, who
calls God 'Elohim'), a writer in
Judah, (the author of the 'J'
document, which refers to God
as 'Jehovah') a 'P' or Priestly
author and a fourth author for
the book of Deuteronomy.
Friedman has gone further.
In a telephone interview from
his California office, Friedman
says he used "a mixture of ar-
chitectural, archaeological,
biblical and Talmudic
sources," along with the
writings of the Jewish
historian Josephus, who wrote
at the time of the second Tem-
ple. Friedman has suggested
two names, one for the author
of Deuteronomy and what is
known as the Deuteronomic
history (the books of Joshua,
Judges, Samuel 1 and 2 and
Kings 1 and 2) and one for the
redactor or editor who put the
Bible together into the form
we know it today.
"The prophet Jeremiah or
his scribe, Baruch Ben
Neriyah, one or the other is
editor and part author of seven
books of the Bible," says
Friedman, basing his theory in
f>art on the similarity of
anguage in the book of
Jeremiah and in Deuteronomy.
produced in two editions, the
first in Jerusalem at the time
of king Josiah and the second
in Egypt shortly after the time
of the exile. My research leads
me to believe that it was the
same person, and here
Jeremiah was in Jerusalem at
the time of Josiah and in
Egypt during the time of ex-
ile/' Friedman explains.
Jeremiah's "family
pedigree" as a descendant of
the priesthood "indicates he
had access to the sacred texts"
of Israel's history, which he
assembled together and
edited, according to Friedman.
While other biblical scholars
have conjectured that a
Deuteronomic historian or
school of historians assembled
the texts, no one has ventured
to name an individual as the
actual author and editor
"If it wasn't Jeremiah, it had
to be someone living at the
same time, in the same place,
writing in the same style and
agreeing with him on
everything," Friedman
Such a person might be
Baruch Ben Neriyah,
Jeremiah's scribe, who left
behind him one of the Bible's
most tangible clues as to
authorship a clay stamp
reading "belonging to Baruch
Ben Neriyah the Scribe" in an-
cient Hebrew lettering.
"We may be looking at the
signature of one of the authors
of the Bible, Friedman asserts.
"It's an extraordinary thing
like finding 'Moses Loves Zip-
porah' carved in a tree."
Even more extraordinary,
perhaps, is Friedman's asser-
tion that he may have pin-
pointed the person who took
various writings of the 'J'
and 4E' authors.and wove
them together with the 'P'
document to produce the Bible
as we know it today.
"Ezra is the editor of the
Torah, the person who put it
all together," contends
'We may be looking
at the signature of
one of the authors ,
extraordinary. .'
"In the books of Ezra and
Nehemiah it is written that
Ezra shows up in Babylon with
a book, holds a big assembly at
the water gate, and reads the
Torah to the people, who hear
things they have never heard
before," recounts Friedman,
who dates this event at around
450 BCE.
"It is clear from the text
that what he read were the
five books of Moses, basically
what you and I have now. This
is the first time that it is made
clear that they have the whole
Torah, the same book you
fashioner of the Torah," Fried-
man says that his was "one of
the great literary
achievements of all time."
What makes Ezra's achieve-
ment also one of the most
ironic of all time, according to
Friedman, is that he combined
"two books meant to be alter-
natives to each other, and sew-
ed them together so brilliantly
that everyone accepted it for
2,000 years. We're only now
figuring out what he did."
The 'P' or priestly docu-
ment, he explains, was written
as an alternative to other
writings which often depicted
Moses brother Aaron, from
whom the priesthood claimed
descent, in an unflattering
Another assertion which
Friedman makes in his book is
that the priestly writings, long
thought to have been written
during the time of the second
temple, actually may have
been authored "hundreds of
years earlier than that. The
priestly material must have
been written during the time

ment on the theory that the
tabernacle mentioned in the
Bible existed and was housed
in the first temple, as seems to
be implied by the priestly
writings. The tabernacle was
destroyed when the temple
was burnt down.
"You wouldn't write 'Wor-
ship only at the tabernacle' if it
' had already been destroyed,"
Friedman contends, pointing
to the fact that the priestly
writings often refer to the
Other evidence which sug-
gests the impossibility of
Moses having personally writ-
ten the five books ascribed to
him. Friedman says the fact
that Moses, who lived around
the 13th century BCE almost
certainly spoke and wrote a
different Hebrew from the 7th
century BCE Hebrew in which
the books are written supports
his thesis.
LINGUISTIC analysis over
the past 15 years has made
such deductions possible,
although Friedman admits
that "we know nothing about
Moses' Hebrew. But even if I
never saw a page ^of
Shakespeare, I would know he
never said 'Far out, man
totally,' which is 20th Century
California English,' says the
Miami Beach-bred Friedman.
Friedman, who has been
likened to a detective unravel-
ing a mystery by many book
reviewers, once studied to
become a rabbi.
"I studied in the Conser-
vatie Rabbinical Seminary for
three years," he reveals. "I
considered becoming a rabbi."
"I was drawn to scholarship
though, and that was 1971
Jrecisely the period that
udaic Studies was growing up
(as a discipline) in colleges all
over this country."
Of his decision to choose a
more secular form of biblical
scholarship, Friedman says
simply that he "had an option.
Before, if you had intellectual
Judaic interests, you became a
The man who once con-
sidered the rabbinate has more
than a detective's appreciation
of the mystery of who wrote
the Bible.
"For a time, most biblical
scholars have been just taking
the Bible apart, and that's why
there is a lot of criticism of
Biblical scholarship," he
"But what's important now
is that we're at the point
where we can put it all
together, where we're not
reading 'J' or 'P,' but we're
reading the Bible."
will never be the same, says
Friedman, for now "we have
this added awareness of how
we come to it, a real apprecia-
tion of the complexity of the
events which came to produce
this book. It's like reading the
Bible in a poorly lit room and
then someone turns the lights
Friedman speaks with en-
thusiasm of the "richness" of
the text "written by over 100
authors." but some may argue
that proof that Moses did not
write the Bible is proof that
destroys not only the book's
mystery, but also some of its
power to inspire.
Asked if finding out that
Moses did not write the Bible
and discovering who may have
been the text's actual authors
and editors is like finding out
how a magician does his trick,
Friedman replies that "it
hasn't had that effect on me."
"People who have read the
book and written me have ac-
tually expressed how it enrich-
ed the experience. The Bible
has always existed in an unreal
world that's why biblical
films always are so bad."
FRIEDMAN'S book, which
supplies political and
sociological background for
the possible authors of the Bi-
ble, dispells some of that sense
of unreality.
But it does not necessarily
have to dispell faith in the
nature of the Bible as a sacred
text, he insists.
"I'm not denying that the Bi-
ble is from God. Many people
seem to think that to say die
five books of Moses were not
by Moses is to say that they
were not revealed or inspired
by God," Friedman reveals.
"But a Biblical scholar sheds
no light on that at all. That's a
matter of faith. You can con-
tinue to believe that the five
books of Moses are from God
what you cannot believe is
that they were from Moses."

The summit endorsed Hus-

total backing of Iraq in the
Persian Gulf war. The move
represents a sharp reversal of

Col. Moammar Gadhafi of
Libya, is the only Arab leader
to have supported the regime
of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-

assented in the condemnation

In that context, the interna-
tional peace conference was a
far less urgent matter. The
Israel government remains
sharply divided on the issue.
Moreover, Hussein was forced
to agree that the Palestine
Liberation Organization must
participate, which makes the
prospects of a conference even
more remote. But there was no
mention of a Palestinian state
in any of the resolutions
adopted at the summit, a score
in Hussein's favor.

healthy and a firm believer in
In its survey, the AIDS
Treatment News reported that
110 respondents indicated that
they had used AL-721, and
that about 50 percent found
the treatment helpful while 15
percent indicated it was not
helpful and 35 percent said
they were uncertain.
"My thinking is that people
are mostly skeptical about any
new treatment," said John
James, publisher of AIDS
Treatment News. "They really
aren't as eager as you might
think to go out and try
something new. Of course if
they're within a few days of
death, they'll try anything.
But most people with AIDS
are healthy enough in the early
stages to begin studying and
doing their own research on
what's best for them. And I
find that generally people are
very skeptical."
"My thinking in general is
that the federal government is
still extremely remiss," said
Daniel Najjar, founder of the
National Jewish AIDS Project.
"They should be testing as
many drugs as possible. They
should be rushing new
treatments in through the
system. AL-721 is just an ex-
ample of how slowed up and
backed up their system is.
"New medications get
reported through the AIDS
grapevine very quickly," Naj-
ar continued. "AIDS activists
have been pleading with the
federal government to put into
trial anything they can. There
is absolutely no excuse for

rights activist who was

four years since his diagnosis,
Miller said he's adjusted his at-
titude in an attempt to live

"Personally, I've condition-
ed myself to accept any good
treatment that is shown not to
have any bad side effects,"
Miller said. "Sometimes the
side effects are worse than the
disease. I'm at a relatively
healthy level at this point. But
I could see how if a person got
really bad, they might start
grasping for medications. I
really don't like to take
medications to begin with.
"Some people" he con-
tinued, "are diagnosed in one
day and they go crazy. It's like
initial shock and they want to
take every oW that's out
there. For me, irs been more
of a roller coaster. Sometimes
I'm emotional and I don't want
to talk about AIDS anymore,
and other times I'm fighting it
like hell. I'm a little skeptical
about drugs, so I try to avoid
them. And I think that if I ever
got to the point of really suf-
fering, I'm not going to main-
tain myself. I'd rather work
myself into a heart attack."
Or as Steve, a gay Jew who

The fourth annual Ballin
Shabbat Lecture will be held at
Temple Beth-El in Hollywood
on Friday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m.
This lecture is sponsored by
Temple members, Louis and
Betty Ballin and will feature
Mr. Ze'ev Chafets, one of
Israel's leading authors and
political commentators. The
subject of his lecture will be
"Heroes and Hustlers In-
side the Real Israel," which is
based on Mr. Chafets' latest
book, Heroes and Hustlers,
Hardhats and Holymen: Inside
the New Israel, which was
published in 1986.
This book is organized
around the disparity between
mythological Israel and the
real one. It is an essentially af-
fectionate and respectful
report on a nation with more
internal contradictions and
characters than any place else
on earth.
Here is a close-up look at
politics in Tel Aviv, life in the
army, Israeli rednecks, life
with a rock'n' roll band on the
road (including the front lines),
the impact of the Holocaust on
young Israelis, the player-fan
relationship Israelis nave with
the Diaspora, the stories of
some weird immigrant groups,
the view of Jerusalem from a
prowl car, the impact of the
brawling 1984 election, the life
of Israeli glamour girls, and
how the law of return helped
Israel win a European basket-
ball title and more. Here are
the real people of the real
Israel in a penetrating,
iconoclastic, and often
hilarious report of the place
the author calls "a good coun-
try in a bad neighborhood."
