U.S. Cannot
Close Mission
NEW YORK (JTA) A federal judge said here that the
United States cannot close the Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion's observer mission to the United Nations.
The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Edmund Palmieri was
a setback to the efforts by the Justice Department to shut down
the PLO mission.
U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese ordered the office closed
by March 21 under the 1987 Anti-Terrorism Act, which was
adopted by Congress late last year and signed by President
Reagan on Dec. 22.
The PLO ignored the order and the Justice Department
promptly sued in U.S. District Court to have the order enforced.
Steven Obus, chief of the civil division of the U.S. District
Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, had no
initial comment on the ruling.
He told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, however, that District
Attorney Rudolph Giuliani was studying it and would consult
with the Justice Department before deciding whether to appeal.
The Justice Department has 60 days to appeal. The process
would take the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals and eventually
to the Supreme Court.
Judge Palmieri found that the 1947 Headquarters Agreement
establishing U.N. headquarters in New York "leaves no doubt"
that the United States is obligated "to refrain from impairing
the function" of the PLO mission.
The judge also said that the legislative history of the
Anti-Terrorism Act does "not manifest Congress' intent to
abrogate this obligation."
He concluded that the Anti-Terrorism Act does not supersede
the Headquarters Agreement, although restrictions on PLO
activity within the United States are appropriate, aside from
application to the U.N. mission.
Under the Anti-Terrorism Act, the United States also closed
down the PLO's information office in Washington last year.
Journalist Indicts
Red Cross
German television journalist
has accused the International
Red Cross of doing little
during World War II to help
Jews in concentration camps,
and of facilitating, as a result
of negligence, the escape of
Nazi war criminals after
World War II.
The charges were leveled by
Heiner Lichtenstein, corre-
spondent for a West German
television network, who is also
author of a book attacking the
Red Cross. His allegations
were published in La Suisse
and La Tribune de Geneve.
Asked to respond, Fritz
Steinman, spokesman for the
Geneva-based International
Committee of the Red Cross,
defended the humanitarian
agency's conduct during and
after the war.
"If three war criminals did
get away, hundreds of thou-
sands ux innocent vvai victims
got documents from the ICRC
which saved their lives,"
Steinman said.
He said Geneva University
historian Jean-Claud Favez
will publish a book this fall
about the ICRC's work on
behalf of war prisoners. He
said the ICRC opened its
secret archives to him, which it
has never done before.
In his book, Lichtenstein
charged that although it has
claimed otherwise, the ICRC
in Geneva was well aware of
Nazi atrocities during the war.
He said rumors were circu-
lating in 1941 of genocide in
Nazi deaths camps, but the
Red Cross "closed their eyes."
Lichtenstein also charged
that in 1945 when it was poss-
ible to help concentration
camp inmates, the ICRC
neglected Jewish prisoners
from Poland or Germany in
favor of those from the Allied
A reception in celebration of the reunion of Boca Raton resident Dr. Galina VUeshina and
her husband, Pyatras Pakenas, was cohosted in Washington B.C. by Florida U.S. Senator
Bob Graham and Rep. E. Clay Shaw, the day after the Soviet refusenik landed at Dulles
International Airport. The couple had been separated for eight years, following Dr.
Vileshina's emigration to the U.S. with her daughter, Laura. Until the eve of the Moscow
summit, Soviet authorities had denied Pakenas' application to leave 18 times. During that
time Dr. Vileshina steadfastly campaigned for permission to have her husband join her here,
supported by Senator Graham and Rep. Smith. Celebrating the reunion with Dr. Vileshina,

Jerusalem To Get
New City Hall
new $65 million city hall will be
constructed in Jerusalem,
uniting under one roof all the
departments of the munici-
pality, which are now
dispersed around the city.
Part of the project's funding
will be provided by the Reich-
mann family of Toronto,
billionaire financiers who are
the developers of the Battery
Park project in Manhattan.
Two members of the Reich-
mann family, Albert and
Edward, joined President
Chaim Herzog and Mayor
Teddy Kollek in laying the
foundation stone for the new
city hall, the Reichmanns' first
major undertaking in Israel.
The new municipal building,

Diaspora Jew the recently
announced Mamilla Project, to

Plans call for the construc-
tion of the city hall complex at
the end of Jaffa Road, opposite
the New Gate of the Old City,
preserving the British-built
main offices of the munici-
pality and the facades of other
architecturally valuable build-
ings in the area.
Ron International Ltd., a
Reichmann-owned subsidiary,
will undertake construction
and will loan the city $30
million for 20 years. The sale
of properties now housing the
city offices will pick up any
slack in funding.

Doubletalk From The PLO
During the recent Algiers
Summit, a paper written by
Bassam Abu Sharif, one of
Yasser Arafat's principal advi-
sors and spokesman for the
PLO, was distributed to
foreign correspondents. At
first glance, the paper seems
to be a departure from the
traditional PLO line. This time
an apparently moderate style
and content seem to have
replaced the usual extremist
positions. Upon close inspec-
tion and careful evaluation,
however, things are not what
they appear to be.
Firstly, the paper is not
binding. It is not even a state-
ment of the PLO Executive
Committee. Only the PLO's
supreme body, the PNC
(Palestinian National Council),
has the authority to determine
the organization's official posi-
tion, and that has not changed.
The true philosophy of the
PLO, as reflected in both its
actions and its national cove-
nant, has remained unchanged
and unamended since 1964.
For quite some time, the
PLO, in addition to its general
efforts to obtain the support of
world public opinion for its
positions, has sought to obtain
United States recognition and
to enter into direct dialogue
with the U.S. government.
Haled El-Hassan, one of
Arafat's closest advisors, reit-
erated this PLO objective in an
interview with the Washington
With this goal in mind,
prominent individual PLO
spokesmen, including Arafat
himself, have from time to
time made positive-sounding
statements for Western ears.
The appearance of this docu-
ment in English rather than in
Arabic the medium of the
PLO and the Arab states
highlights this overall attempt
to disguise the extremist
message of the PLO making it
palatable to Western sensibil-
ities. In addition to their super-
ficial nature, such utterances
have also often been reversed
soon after they were said.
Simultaneously, other
declarations are made, usually
contrary reiterating
the PLO's commitment to the
'armed struggle' and the elim-
ination oflsrael and
terrorist operations likewise
Regrettably, calls to inten-
sify acts of violence were made
virtually alongside Bassam
Abu Sharif s paper. Flyer No.
19 of the Committee for the
Uprising designated June 22
as a 'Day of Burning,' and
called for the destruction of
Israeli agricultural and indus-
trial property. On May 8,
Filastin Al-Thawrah printed
an article expressing the hope
that the PLO-Syria rapproche-
ment will enable an intensifica-
tion of the 'Armed Struggle'
from Lebanon, and that
Jordan will join the Pales-
tinian-Syrian eastern front
against Israel. On the eve of
the Algiers Summit, the PLO
spokesman, Ahmed Abdel
Rahman, was quoted as
saying, in the official PLO
organ Filastin Al-Thawrah;
'The defeat of our enemy is
possible. Therefore, the Arab
military option must be
resumed, and the eastern front
revived.' In the last year,
terrorist groups have made
more than 20 attempts to infil-
trate into Israel primarily
from the North with the
intention of either taking
hostages or engaging in mass
killing. The most recent
attempt, intercepted in time
by the IDF, took place near the
Israeli village of Kfar Yuval.
It is important to look care-
fully at what Bassam Abu
Sharif says. He states that the
PLO accepts resolutions 242
and 338, but only in the
context of other UN resolu-
tions. Linkage with other reso-
lutions such as those
requiring a return to the 1947
partition lines, and libelous
equating of Zionism with
racism would consequently
empty 242 and 338 the only
resolutions mutually accepted
by Israel and the Arab states
of substance and undermine
the peace process.
As for participation in direct
negotiations, Abu Sharif's
paper is an indication that for
the first time the PLO might
be willing to give the residents
of the territories a role in the

peace process, by agreeing to
allow them to elect their repre-
sentatives. Yet he, nonethe-
less, leaves no doubt that he
expects the results of the
referendum to point to the
PLO, and indicates that
Jordan is not the answer. His
implication is clear: there is no
room for a Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation.
Bassam Abu Sharif is
thereby seeking to deny a role
to what is the most viable
option in Arab-Israel peace
Finally, Abu Sharif does not
state that the 'armed struggle'
is to be set aside, not even
during the period of negotia-
tions. On the contrary, he adds
an implict warning: that terror
will continue, if Israel does not
accept the conditions
presented in his paper.
Bassam Abu Sharif's deletion
of an explicit commitment to
abandon terror immediately
raises questions as to the
sincerity of his proposals. The
PLO has floated moderate-
sounding ideas before.
However, the PLO's propen-
sity for double-talk is not new.
Sadly, even this statement
conciliatory in tone, but
extremist in substance is
sparking other PLO leaders
such as Abu Nidal to ostracize
and even threaten Abu-Sharif.
Hence, the PLO, in its rhetoric
and in its action, is as uncom-
promising and as violent as
Therefore, a Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation remains
the only negotiating partner
likely to give the peace process
any chance for success.

Brandeis Regional Office
Moves To Boca
Brandeis University's
Southeast regional operations
moved to Boca Raton as of
July 1.
In announcing the move
from its previous location in
Bay Harbor Islands, Miami
Beach, Laurence H. Rubin-
stein, the senior vice president
for development and alumni
relations, noted that the dyna-
mics of South Florida's demo-
graphy have created great
opportunities to win friends
for Brandeis in Broward and
Palm Beach Counties. Rubin-
stein points out that 60
percent of South Florida's
Jewish population now lives in
Broward and Palm Beach
The new location is at
Powerline Road and Camino
Real, in the middle of the area
of population growth
extending from Fort Lauder-
dale and up through the Palm
Beaches. "We are very optim-
istic about the prospects for
Brandeis in light cf this
move," explains Nicholas
Simmonds, who directs Bran-
deis' development activities in
southeastern U.S.
Simmonds stressed that the
move to Boca should not be
construed as the end of the
Brandeis presence in Miami.
"We will continue to be very
active in Dade County," he
In November 1986, Brandeis
embarked on a $200 million
capital campaign to be
completed in 1991. As of April
1988, the campaign had
reached $104.3 million, a
figure made possible, in part,
by a fund-raising event in
Palm Beach this past
February, which netted $16.6

Klaperman Elected
To Second Term At SCA
NEW YORK Rabbi Gilbert Klaperman was elected to
a second one-year term as president of the Synagogue
Council of America which comprises the rabbinic and
congregational branches of Conservative, Orthodox and
Reform Judaism, serving over four million congregants in
the United States.
Klaperman has served Orthodox Congregation Beth

Hadassah Travels To Israel For 40
Over 100 Hadassah presi-

small, and other leading
members of Hadassah,
between Wilmington, Dela-
ware and San Diego, Cali-
fornia, have recently returned
from a tour of Israel as part of
Israel's 40th anniversary cele-
brations. Over 30 husbands
and children accompanied the
leaders on the Hadassah Presi-
dential Mission to Israel.
The Mission was led by
Hadassah's national president,
Ruth Popkin, and was chaired
by Roslyn K. Bracher, national
travel chairman.
"Despite the situation, we
found Israelis justly proud of
the miracles achieved during
the past 40 years," said
The Mission went all over
Israel. "We found life going on
normally," said Roz Brecher,
adding "Israel is a shopper's
paradise now."
The Mission spent a week in
Jerusalem and, Brecher said,
the stores stayed open at night
for them.. With shopkeepers

Americans visiting Israel and

and peaceful it is.
When the Mission visited the
Knesset, Speaker Shlomo
Hillel spoke to them about the
history of Jewish-Arab rela-
tions. "Neither side can get
100 percent of what they
want," said Hillel. "We have
to have negotiations and
concessions from both sides."

Death in the Middle East
Death was the common denominator in the
Middle East and the Persian Gulf as warfare
declared and undeclared erupted anew all
over the region.
A single missile ended the lives of 290
civilians as an American cruiser, fitted with
the most sophisticated electronic equipment of
any warship in the world, made a tragic error.
Iran and Iraq continued to kill thousands of
soldiers and civilians alike in a war which
already has lasted longer than World War II,
and one in which unguided rockets and chem-
ical weapons are the rule, not the exception.
Dozens of Palestinians die as the pro-Arafat
and pro-Syrians clash in the camps near Beirut
and elsewhere in Lebanon. American hostages
are threatened with execution by the pro-
Iranian terrorists and more Hezbollah fanatics
cry, "Death to the United States. Death to
At the same time, Arab protests in the
territories administered by Israel go on, with
far fewer deaths than elsewhere in the
spreading war zone. Outside of the Anglo-
Jewish press, the fact that Jordan attacked
Israel during the Six-Day War and lost control
of East Jerusalem and the West Bank which it
had seized itself in the 1948-49 war, seems
never to be remembered.
Even the most rabid anti-Zionists in this
country and around the world will be hard
pressed still to say that the Palestinian ques-
tion is at the root of all conflict in the Near
But say it they will. And few will be the
journalists who note the disparity in the
deaths recorded in these past days. Instead,
they rush to judgment on the judicial orders
which permit the PLO to maintain its mission
at the United Nations, minimizing the
terrorist nature of the organization itself.
This is not the time for Israel's supporters to
be apologetic, nor even to "play it cool." Our
voices should and must be heard, loudly and
Electoral Reform Progresses
Electoral reform has been an issue in Israeli
politics ever since 1955, when the late Prime
Minister David Ben Gurion gave his backing to a
proposal for reform. Since that time, many in
Israel have been critical of the existing system of
proportional representation, pointing to the prolif-
eration and disproportionate influence of small
parties in the Knesset. These critics feel that the
large parties' constant need to court coalition
partners has caused much paralysis in Israeli
Recently a bill that would change the system of
Knesset elections over to a mixed system of
proportional and constituency elections passed its
first reading by a comfortable majority. There is no
chance for the bill to become law before the present
Knesset adjourns at the end of July, but the vote
constituted the greatest progress made to date by
the proponents of electoral reform.

Awad: Sleight-of-Hand Artist
NEW YORK Two weeks
ago, I received an unexpected
telephone call from Mubarak
Awad, the self-proclaimed
Palestinian apostle of non-
"I would like you to convert
me to Judaism," he said.
Immediately he added, "I have
no interest in the Jewish reli-
gion. I need to become Jewish
in order to get back to Jeru-
We then had a civil exchange
during which I told Mr. Awad
that Judaism welcomes
authentic converts, but rejects
"instant converts." No respon-
sible rabbi in the world would
preside over such a cynical and
offensive act.
Mr. Awad changed the
subject and talked unambigu-
ously about his so-called non-
violent political agenda.
"We want a Palestinian
state next to a Jewish state,"
he said, and without hesitating
added, "But that's just for the
moment. It is a temporary
transition. What we really
want is secular democratic
Palestinian state in which we
Arabs will be the majority.
There will be no Jewish flag,
no Star of David, and no
Hatikvah national anthem."
"Just the way the Arab-
Muslim majority have treated
the Christians in Lebanon," I
After more conversation, I
concluded that Mubarak Awad
is a political sleight-of-hand
artist who has used non-violent
rhetoric and symbols to cover
his real program of violent
aggression against Israel.
The media celebrates him
uncritically as a disciple of
Mahatma Gandhi and Martin
Luther King. I doubt very
much whether Gandhi and
King would have acknowl-
edged the real Mubarak Awad
as a legitimate disciple of their
non-violent philosophy.

delegates to the party's national platform
committee meeting decided to reject calls by
the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his
supporters for creation of a Palestinian state.
Governor Michael Dukakis made it clear
that he will not tolerate such a plank, and the
Jackson camp appears to have backed off from
a threatened floor fight at the convention in
Dukakis' assertion that the United States
embassy should be moved from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem has won expected applause from
supporters of Israel and denunciations from
her detractors although it was not made a
formal part of the platform.
Plainly, a challenge has been given to Vice
President George Bush and the Republican
party, both to be forthcoming vis a vis Israel in
the GOP platform and to evidence action in the
ramaining months of the Reagan-Bush Admin-
At the same time, American Jews must
make it abundantly clear that their votes are
not for sale to the highest bidder on a single
issue. The principles of economic stability,
social justice and a clear foreign policy in all
parts of a world will weigh heavily on our
individual judgments when we go to the polls
in November.

Slowing Aging
HAIFA Attempts to slow
human aging are likely to
begin within ten years, say
scientists at the Technion
Israel Institute of Technology,
who have already succeeded in
retarding aging in simple
round worms by introducing
vitamin E.
With their research indi-
cating that vitamin E is most
effective in retarding aging
when introduced during the
early stages of the worm's
growth and development,
scientists at the Technion
believe that any intervention
in the human aging process
would probably have to be
done early in life.
Anniversary of Annexation
JERUSALEM (JTA) A general strike gripped
East Jerusalem on the 21st anniversary of its
annexation by Israel. But expected rioting did not
materialize, due in large meaasure to the massive
police presence.
Police Minister Haim Barlev said this repre-
sented a failure for the underground leadership of
the Palestinian uprising. Their "Communique No.
20," circulated earlier, urged public disorder on the
anniversary date.
But it also gave security forces plenty of time to
prepare for trouble.
"Jerusalem is unified and will remain unified,"
Barlev declared. He said that in addition to taking
security precautions, the police and the munici-
pality were trying to make personal contacts with
various Arab leaders to convince the people that in
the long run, violence does not pay.

Gaza Strip and Islamic Fundamentalism
S. AH M. Gka'emi, an Iranian-American
doctoral student in politics in Washington,
D.C., wrote this article for "Security Affairs,"
a publication of the Jewish Institute for
National Security Affairs. The article is
reprinted with permission.
The past months of continuous rioting
in the Gaza have shown the world yet
another potent domain of Muslim radi-
calism. Even in the midst of the violence,
Gaza's Islamic college held elections for
its women's student council and they
yielded 75% of the votes and thus full
control of the council to the Islamic
Bloc. Indeed, Gaza's Islamic revolt came
as a surprise only to those who overrated
the Gazans' contentment with Israeli
administration or wishfully thought the
PLO. which admittedly has been trying
to catch up with events, is a bastion of
threatening revolution.
Islamic College boasts an attendance of
nearly 5,000 students and has become an
epicenter of extremist Islamic activities.
The recent women's student council
election results were previously matched
in 1986 when general student council
elections revealed that 75% of the ballots
were cast for Muj'amaists.
The fanatical actions of the funda-
mentalists, starting with assaults on
Palestinians deemed as collaborators,
were initiated by the Muj'ama but are
now chiefly perpetrated by "Jihadists."
The emotional attachment by these dis-
enchanted youths to Islam, as a reaction
to nationalism's impotence, is initially
displayed with the donning of religiously
prescribed clothing. Non-conforming
Gazans are harrassed by the militants,
while merchants who sell liquor or
"In Gaza, where not one Shiite resides. Islamic Jihad
made one of its initial marks just before the rioting
with ... a leaflet that surprised the Israeli more by its
source than its message."
There are no Shiites living in Gaza, but Islamic fundamentalism is increasing particularly
among the young. This store specializes in "religiously correct" clothing.
The first blunt indications of Gazan
fundamentalist activism appeared over
four years ago with the emergence of the
Muj'ama or "Community". In many
ways operating like a secret society, the
Muj'ama was for many disenchanted
Ganza youths an alternative to the stag-
nant position of the conservative Muslim
Brotherhood as well as ineffective na-
tionalist groups.
Yet more radical than the Muj'ama
is the Khomeini-inspired "Islamic Jihad
for the Liberation of Palestine." In Gaza,
where not one Shiite resides. "Islamic
Jihad" made one of its initial marks just
before the riots with the mass distribu-
tion of a leaflet that surprised the Israelis
more by its source than by its message.
Four years earlier, in July 1983.
Gazans had received another flyer in the
aftermath of a shooting incident at
Hebron's Islamic college in the West
Bank. The message described the Jews a
"progeny of monkeys and pigs" while it
called for an "Islamic struggle for the
return of rights." Hebron, after all, was
the town where Khomeini T-shirts could
be purchased in the open Arab market-
place as late as 1985. Indeed, in the
summer of 1986. the Orthodox Israeli
monthly "Counterpoint" lamented that,
"Needless to say, Iran's Khomeini also
has significant backing in the area."
"Islamic Jihad" inspired youths such
as the 22-year-old Gazan who is serving
a life sentence for murdering two Jews in
the Strip. The young terrorist's testimony
in court was basically an enunciation of
the tenets of Islamic fundamentalism:
"We attach greater importance to death
than to life, either we liberate our country
or we die." Indeed, in the Muslim
fanatic's mentality, either outcome

dary educational institution in the entire

Western musical tapes are physically
attacked. Even Western-style weddings
are broken up by chanting fanatics.
Other acts of intimidation and terror
have included acid attacks, knife slash-
ings, firebombings and even the destruc-
tion of mosques deemed not built along
Islamic guidelines. The fundamentalists'
vengeance led them even to steal weap-
ons from the Israeli army for use against
"collaborators" first, then Jews. For this
crime a Muj'ama leader was convicted
and sentenced to 31 years in prison;
however, he was released, after serving
only two years, as part of a prisoner
exchange in 1985. The Muj 'amaists were
thus left free to "muscle the Koran",
especially in the refugee camps.
Congregational prayers offered in
mosques on the Islamic sabbath of
Friday have become political rallies. Just
as in Iran, the mosques of Gaza are
practically indoctrination centers where
sermons serve as manifestos and the
clergy as a vanguard.
Indeed, the Gaza Strip, which is one of
the most densely populated areas on
earth with nearly 5,000 persons per
square mile, is a dominion that neither
the Egyptians or Jordanian authorities
want to administer. The only exception
has been the introduction of a five-year
development plan for the West Bank and
Gaza by King Hussein, for which the
monarch began begging Washington,
the EEC and the Gulf Arabs in Novem
ber 1986 for $ 1.2 billion. But even in this
plan is the goal of keeping the Pales-
tinians out of his kingdom. In fact, the
Hashemite ruler wishes to concentrate
on the seemingly less-politicized rural
areas, in which case it would be a giant
leap from the $28,000 that Jordan allot-
ted for West Bank agriculture in all of
Amman's 19-year-long rule there.
For the Israelis' part, the relatively
impressive attempts to enact certain so-
cial welfare programs in Judea Samaria
and the Gaza Strip are particularly
boasted about in relation to the status of
the administered Palestinian women. A
1986 report by the United Nations Asso-
ciation of Israel, for example, concluded
that "the increasing participation of
women in the labor force, the rise in their
educational level, and the establishment
of five universities and their accessibility
to women, have led to a change not only
in the perception of women regarding
their role in society, but also to a change
in the attitude of society regarding the
capacity of women to participate in
public life." Hence, while right-wing
Israelis were correctly arguing that the
Arabs could not be pacified through
social welfare, liberal Israelis have been
surprised at the sight of younger Pales-
tinian women donning veils and chant-
ing "Allah is greatest."
While some observers feel that the
Gaza disturbances were part of a general
Israeli plan to drive the Arabs out, some
senior Israeli officials are anticipating
with anxiety the worst yet to have come
from the fundamentalists. Parallel to
these largely privately-expressed fears is
a growing Israeli mood to vacate Gaza
before it is too late. After all. in the words
of prominent Israeli-American journalist
Helen Davis, "Unforgiving, uncom-
promising Islamic Jihad now promises to
make the jaded PLO 'ook like a teddy
bear's picnic."
Leaders Call For
International Conference
HANOVER (JTA) The European Community
resolved to work for a United Nations-sponsored
international peace conference to resolve the
Middle East conflict.
That policy statement was issued by the heads of
state and government of the 12 E.C. member-
states on the second day of their summit meeting
here. It was drafted by the E.C. foreign ministers.
The statement declares that "the status quo in
the occupied territories cannot be sustained,"
apparently a reference to the Palestinian uprising
against Israeli rule in the West Bank and Gaza
The 12 nations pledged to continue to work "on
the basis of their established positions toward
the early convening, under United Nations
auspices, of an international conference, which is
the suitable framework for the necessary negotia-
tions between the parties directly concerned, and is
essential to bring about a comprehensive, just and
lasting peace in the region.
"The 12 will support all initiatives to this end,"
the communique said.
The forum at which the statement was issued
was the periodic gathering of European leaders to
consider collective positions on international prob-

Rome Rabbi
ROME (JTA) Delivering
new warnings on the resur-
gence of racism and anti-
Semitism in Italy, Rome's
chief rabbi told a newspaper
here that he is virtually a
prisoner in his own synagogue,
protected by armed guards
and armed escorts whenever
he travels.
In an interview published by
Corriere delta Sera, Rabbi Elio
Toaff spoke of the hate mail
that arrives every day. And he
reiterated the charge he made
earlier that the official catholic
News media is as culpable as
the secular press for distorted,
inflammatory reporting on
events in the Israel-
administered territories. He
believes the coverage has
given rise to anti-Semitic inci-
dents in Italy.
While Toaff again charged
that parts of the Catholic
media are anti-Semitic, he also
praised a document issued by
the Conference of Catholic
Bishops that expressed deep
concern over the incidents,
condemned anti-Jewish atti-
tudes and warned Italians to
beware of anti-Semitic feel-
The bishops' statement was
in direct response to xoait's
charges. Toaff said in the
interview that he was espe-
cially appreciative that the
bishops made clear that there
is a distinction between Italian
Jews and policies carried out
by the government or political
parties in Israel.
Nevertheless, the problem
remains serious. "There are
too many signs that racism has
never disappeared, that it has
smoldered under the ashes (of
fascism). Even idn 1938, it
began on the quiet and
exploded a few years later, and
Jews were not the only
victims," he said.

Former Ambassador To U. N. Tells A.D.L.
We Should Stand With Israel
Today, Israelis confront the
two radicalisms of the Middle
East: the Moscow-based,
Moscow-linked P.L.O. and
Hezbollah, whose capital is
Teheran. That neither of these
groups can finally live with
each other does not diminish
the fact that their alliance
today enhances the threat to
Israel or that Israel must deal
with that alliance.
The government of Israel is
also confronted with three
other significant problems:
Problems deriving from
Arab nationalism which have
been very carefully cultivated
and manipulated by the P.L.O.
Syria, Jordan, Egypt, the
Saudis, and all the Arab world
in fact, have been drawn into

friends who see any associa-
tion with Israel as a negative
factor in the achievement of
their diplomatic and economic
objectives. They are not neces-
sarily prepared to secure fair
play for Israel or to be
concerned about Israel's situa-
tion even when the life of the
state is at stake.
The American dogma to
which I have already referred,
that all problems can be solved
and all people can be counted
on to seek solutions in good
faith. I share these hopes
but my study of modern
history suggests otherwise.
I do not believe there is a
solution to Israel's problems
today. That is a terrible thing
for an American to say.
Certainly an international
conference is no solution.
People know that Israel's
neighbors will not engage in
direct negotiations for peace.
Instead, they kill anyone who
proposes to make peace with
Israel, like Bashir Gemayel or
Anwar Sadat.
I have my own view:
anybody who takes such a
conference seriously should be
sentenced to serve one full
year at the United Nations. I
say quite flatly and I'm a
cautious person about making
predictions there will be no
conference even if Israel
accepts the propositions in
their current form. Unless
Israel is prepared to put the
settlement of her borders
entirely in the hands of a
group of adversaries, there
will be no international confer-
The Soviet Union has made
it clear that it will not accept a
conference in which the inter-
national group that is, the
Permanent members of the
ecurity Council serve only
as an umbrella for direct nego-
tiations between the parties.
This is what we hope. The
Soviets have said from the
beginning that is not good
enough. I do not believe the
Soviets will attend any inter-
national conference at which
decisions are not made by
majority vote or in which
every permanent member does
not have a veto. They want to
be part of the decision-making
process and their clients, the
P.L.O. and Syria, want them
to be.
If Israel accepts the terms
that are offered today, those
terms will shift. And if Israel
accepts second terms, they will
shift again. And it will finally
prove impossible for any
Israeli government, no matter
how it is constituted, to keep
its footing in that shifting
This diplomacy is reminis-
cent of the revolutionary
1960s. Those tactics rely on
violence to create provocation,
on anti-reason to shock and to
enhance violence. They seek to
dramatize and to provide an
almost entirely mythological
history to justify their claims.
It is a fact that today small
bands of violent men have
discovered by the skillful use
of propaganda and violence
and international media it is
possible to win power against
overwhelming numbers. They
begin with terror and move on
to a revolutionary situation.
Violence is used by all so-
called national liberation
movements today in their
efforts to polarize populations

"Israel has been progressively deprived
of legitimacy in the eyes of a very large
number of people in the world...
and destroy governments. The
demands of the revolutionaries
are widely believed to have a
kind of moral superiority and
the efforts of governments to
survive are taken to be a proof
that they are repressive and
incapable of dealing creatively
and humanely with their own
people. Under that logic, the
violence of revolutionaries is
legitimate, while the violence
of government is repression.
In the United Nations we
have seen developed an instru-
ment against Israel. It works
like this: against that which
was called colonialism, armed
struggle was legitimate. This
was extended to include what
was called racism, against
which armed struggle was
legitimate. Finally, against
that which is called Zionism,
armed struggle is legitimate.
Israel has been progres-
sively deprived of legitimacy in
the eyes of a very large
number of people in the world
today, deprived of its rights
even the right to self-defense.
What can Israel do? There
are limits. I do not think Israel
can do very much about the
United Nations.
What can Israel do about
Gaza, about the West Bank? It
can offer as much autonomy to
the people there as possible. It
can offer as generous a policy
as devoid of harassment and
petty irritations as possible. It
can correct right now a few
harassments in the process. It
can disengage Israeli occupa-
tion forces to the maximum
extent consistent with main-
taining order and preventing
the territory from falling to
the hands of P.L.O. terrorists
and Hezbollah murderers. It
can prepare for a long siege.
The violence played out on our
television screens is a very
important part of this attack. I
have thought a good deal about
this. What do you do if you
believe in freedom and you
know that provocateurs and
practitioners of violence are
deliberately creating political
melodramas to delegi-
timize you, night after night?
I have decided, tentatively at
least, that Israel would prob-
ably be justified under current
circumstances in barring tele-
vision coverage of the distur-
bances in Gaza and the West
Bank. Print journalists could
be permitted on the scene and
should be able to satisfy
reasonable standards of free
speech and free press without
providing a global stage to
political melodramatists.
What can Israel's American
friends do? First, we can
understand that the survival of
Israel is at stake and that we,
as well as Israel, are targets. If
you read the literature and
speeches of Yasir Arafat, the
Ay a toll ah, Qaddafi, one thing
you learn is that the United
States is attacked almost as
often as Israel and not just
for supporting Israel. Israel is
also attacked for supporting
We really are in this
together and we ought to be
clear about this. We can
remember that internecine
violence is a norm in this and
in many other regions so we
can lower our own level of
concern when it tends to
become hysterical. We can
remember, too, that many
millions of Jews died in this
century because neither they
nor almost anyone else
believed Adolf Hitler's clearly
stated intentions. Surely it is
not necessary for the Jews of
Israel to be sacrificed to
western liberals' need to
disbelieve the horrible.
Finally, I think we can stand
with the government of Israel
not just because it is in our
interest, though it is not just
because Israel is part of our
civilization, though it is but
because Israel has demon-
strated a right to exist and to

The Economic Repercussions of The Intifada French
Cause Alarm
year 1987 was good for the
Israeli economy. Inflation was
confined to a 15-year low of
16.5 percent, compared to the
more than 500 percent at its
frightening peak in 1984.
Currency reserves had accu-
mulated at a reasonable pace.
Unemployment was reduced.
Consumers no longer were
under pressure to get rid of
shrinking shekels quickly.
There were clouds on the
horizon, and many problems
would have to be solved, but
the outlook wasn't so bad.
Then in December came the
riots in the Gaza Strip and the
West Bank. They have lasted
now more than half a year, and
have brought on a whole set of
hitherto unknown problems
and expenses.
The costs to the government
and the public have accrued so
much that the Israeli economy
has conceivably been thrown-
back for years to come. The
intifada, Arab word for the
uprising, has so far cost a
staggering $780 million, and
it's not over.
In general, the unrest in
Gaza and the West Bank has
not reached the goals set by an
elusive underground leader-
ship, except that the Pales-
tinian problem has become
part of the international
agenda and Israel's image has
been severely damaged.
The leaders of the revolt
could not prevent all workers
from going to Israel, just as
there were limits to their
command that ordered Arabs
to boycott Israeli goods, refuse
to pay taxes, stop dealing with
the military government and
to tear up the identity cards
that Arabs needed in order to
move around and receive
certain services.
Nevertheless, whenever
these demands were met by
the rank and file, it amounted
to a great annoyance, and the
repercussions were there for
all to see.
Even if laborers from the
territories came to work inside
Israel, they come at irregular,
wholly unpredictable intervals,
upsetting work schedules and
hampering production.
abroad might create other
social problems.
Whenever countries try to
curtail severe labor shortages
by importing workers on a
large scale, they have to deal
with problems of integration
and meeting alien customs.
Arab laborers working
inside Israel go home at night.
The imported foreign workers
will become part of the Israeli
scene, and Israeli authorities
will have to be aware of this
difference. Until now, the
economic link to the occupied

About 40 percent of the
territories' work force, or
more than 100,000 workers,
are employed in Israel, inside

industry, 21,000 in the service
sector and more than 13,000 in

Europe and Southern
In the end, the link that until
now bound the territories to
Israel and provided income for
thousands of Arab families will
be broken, and the Israelis will
have to cope with a sizeable
unemployment in the occupied
lands which, before the riots,
was rather negligible.
On the other hand, the
importing of workers from
territories was quite profitable
for Israel. Exports to the terri-
tories from Israel exceeded
imports for a number of years.
The exchange of goods gave
work to many Israelis and
Arabs. It created ties which
now seem in danger of being
broken. Israeli banks have
closed their branch offices in
the territories after thousands
of Gaza residents withdrew
their accounts.
Threats to property and to
the lives of employees have
changed the relationship with
local Arab customers or
contractors. A sizeable reduc-
tion in the economic activities
between Israel and the terri-
tories will be unavoidable.
Arabs will try to replace
Israeli sources of goods and
services with the help of other
Arab states which, so far, have
been supplying words of assis-
tance instead of the required
That situation might change,
however, as sizeable support
begins arriving from sources
like the "Popular Committee
for the Steadfastness of the
Uprising," which collected
more than 500,000 dinars
($1.38 million).
King Hussein of Jordan
decreed that one day's pay be
deducted from all government
workers and placed in a fund
for the support of the families
of the dead and wounded, and
those in detention.
Saudi Arabia, the paymaster
of the PLO, will continue to
open its purse and supplement
its contributions to the "Pales-
tinian case." For the last 10
years, Saudi Arabia paid an
average of $85.5 million to the
PLO. King Fahd wants "to
liberate Jerusalem" at all
Until now, this "liberation"
has been a slogan. But the
intifada has hardened Arab
positions, and has made them
conscious of the political and
economic fallout from the
stones and Molotov cocktails
that are thrown or the fire-
bombs that are planted.
They have become bolder,
not just asking for an end to
the occupation and the crea-
tion of an independent Pales-
tinian state, but including in
their demands Haifa and Tel
Aviv, a code for the destruc-

It is the old story of Arab
negativism and nihilism. In the

Netanya An Unusual Tourist's Treat
promise of relaxation and
comfort at a moderate price
lures tens of thousands of
Israelis and Europeans each
summer to Netanya, a holiday
resort on the Mediterranean.
But Americans, for some
reason, persist in missing the
golden beaches and shady,
cliff-top promenades that lend
Netanya its character.
Lying on the Mediterranean
just a half-hour north of Tel
Aviv, Netanya is one of
Israel's larger cities, with a
population just under 100,000.
Yet the resort neither
bustles like Tel Aviv, nor
resembles the quiet dormitory
towns of nearby Kfar Sava and
Petach Tikva.
Netanya instead offers
wholesome, unpretentious
enjoyment and facilities for all

4Hate Crime'
President Reagan has signed
into law a bill that imposes
federal criminal penalties for
damage to religious property.
The bill, originally proposed
by Rep. Dan Glickman (D-
Kan.), imposes fines up to
$250,000 and/or 10-years'
imprisonment for anyone
convicted of causing more than
$10,000 in damage to a reli-
gious institution or cemetery,
or causing serious bodily
injury to anyone trying to
exercise his or her religious
"We've sent a clear message
to organizations of hate that
racist and racial religious
violence will not be tolerated,"
Glickman said after both
houses of Congress approved
the bill.
Still pending in the Senate
Judiciary Committee is
another "hate crimes" bill,
which would require the
Justice Department to gather
statistics and report annually
on crimes against persons or
property because of race, reli-
gion, ethnic origin or sexual
That bill, sponsored by Rep.
John Conyers (D-Mich.), was
adopted by the House in May
by a 383-29 vote.
Testifying in support of the
legislation last week at a
hearing of the Senate Judic-
iary Subcommitte on the
Constitution, Alan Schwartz,
director of research and evalu-
ation for the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, said
that keeping such statistics
"would be a major step
forward in accurately gauging
the dimensions of hate crime
He added that it would also
"promote public awareness of,
and professional sensitivity
toward, hate crimes and
encourage victims and commu-
nities to feel that they can
respond effectively to counter
such activity."
The ADL's most recent
study revealed that hate
crimes increased by 17 percent
in 1987 over 1986.

preferring a more sedate vaca-
tion, Netanya presents a
promenade on the cliff above
the beach, with exotic flow-
ering bushes, comfortable
benches and balmy breezes
even on the hottest days.
The town boasts a large
population of British and
American pensioners and
some of the country's most
active immigrant associations.
Sun and sea enthusiasts
prosper in Netanya, as break-
waters keep the rougher
waves away from the shore,
allowing swimmers to enjoy
large areas of calm sea and
clean, white-gold sands.
Surfers, meanwhile, can still
mount the waves beyond the
stone barriers.
The town's main square, full
of Mediterranean-style
evening strollers, is studded
with restaurants, ethnic
eateries, fish and seafood,
Eastern European cooking
and fast food ranging from
hamburgers and pizzas, to
felafel and humus.
Netanya offers several
kosher restaurants, and all the
hotel dining rooms serve
kosher food.
The variety of these hotels
can satify everyone from the
luxurious, though small, Four
Seasons overlooking the
northern part of the beach, to
numerous four- and three-star
hotels further south.
For the ultra-Orthodox, the
Kiryat Sanz hotel, a 15-minute
walk from the Four Seasons, is
part of the Hasidic community
of Klausenberg.

Israel Fires
Could Be Arson
Since January, 450 fires
have devastated nearly 30,000
acres of planted forest, natural
woodland, pastures and
grazing areas in Israel. In
addition, orchards, poultry
houses and barns have been
These fires have caused
serious ecological harm that
will take much time and effort
to reverse and the loss of
property, livestock and poultry
has placed a heavy economic
burden on the farmers of the
More than 40 percent of
these fires and more than 80
percent of the more recent
blazes were apparently
started by extremist Arab
Evidence of arson has come
from several quarters. The
Iraqui news agency quoted
PLO Chief Yasir Arafat as
stating that the fires are part
of the intifada (anti-Israel
uprising). A recent flyer,
distributed by PLO-affiliated
elements in the territories,
called upon Arab residents to
cause a "Day of Burning."
Also, a large number of fires
broke out simultaneously
within certain areas and, addi-
tionally, some 35 arsonists
were spotted and appre-
As early as six decades ago,
forests and property of Jewish
settlers were also targeted for
such attacks.
In a speech before Arab,
Bedouin and Druze farmers,
Israeli President Chaim
Herzog called upon Jewish and
Arab farmers to unite against
"the menace to the land" and
expressed the hope that "the
day will come when the
igniters of the forests and the
disseminators of hatred will
Virginia Celebrates
Religious Liberty
More than 80 religious, busi-
ness and political leaders have
signed the Williamsburg
Charter, a new document
which celebrates the First
Amendment's guarantee of
religious liberty.
The signing ceremony, held
in historic Williamsburg, Va.,
marked the 200th anniversary
of Virginia's ratification of the
U.S. Constitution and the
state's call for a bill of rights.
Among the signers were
Michael Pelavin, chairman of
the National Jewish
Community Relations Advi-
sory Council; Samuel
Rabinove, legal director of the
American Jewish Committee;
and Joshua Haberman, presi-
dent of the Foundation for
Jewish Studies.
Thomas Neumann, execu-
tive vice president of B'nai
B'rith International, signed it
earlier at the U.S. Capitol, and
Elie Wiesel, the Nobel laur-
eate, is expected to sign it at a
later date.
The weekend of activities,
dubbed the "First Liberty"
Summit, was organized by the
Williamsburg Charter Founda-
tion, which is officially recog-
nized by the Commission on
the Bicentennial of the United
States Constitution to study
the role of religion in the
United States.
Artifacts Finish Tour
Artifacts from the Holo-
caust's most notorious death
camp, Auschwitz, have
finished their first-ever, 14-
city U.S. tour. Sponsored by
the United Jewish Appeal, the
exhibition was organized in
Poland by the Auschwitz State
Museum and originally
brought to the United Nations
by the Polish People's
Republic to commemorate
Human Rights Day in
December, 1985.
"Auschwitz: A Crime
Against Mankind" features
photographs and documents
from the death camp; personal
items that belonged to the
victims, such as shoes,
eyeglasses and suitcases; and
articles from the camp,
including barbed wire, shaved
hair and oven parts.
UJA National Chairman
Morton A. Kornreich notes
that "people from all parts of
the country .. have been
exposed to something they
might see only at the sites of
destruction in Poland itself, at
Yad Vashem in Israel, or Holo-
caust memorials ..."
Survivors and children of
survivors worked alongside
Jewish and Christian clergy,
members of Polish civic associ-
ations, and federation leaders
to present the exhibit.
As Martin F. Stein,
chairman of the UJA Board of
trustees said, "It is important
for everyone, especially the
young, to know that the Holo-
caust really happened, that it
was horrific and that it could
happen again."

ministerial committee on the
health care crisis reported
some progress toward
resolving the issues that have
kept government and Hista-
drut hospitals in a state of near
chaos in recent months.
It was the first time any
movement was reported by the
committee, which has been
meeting daily since it was
established at the beginning of
Its members, Premier
Yitzhak Shamir and Finance
Minister Moshe Nissim of
Likud, and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres and Health
Minister Shoshana Arbeli-
Almoslino of Labor, have been
deadlocked along party lines.
They agreed that public
sector hospitals those run by
the state or by Kupat Holim.
the Histadrut health care
agency should receive a
special supplementary budget
to reduce the waiting time for
elective surgery, which is now
as long as two years.
The doctors have been
demanding second shifts in the
operating theaters. But until
now, Finance Minister Nissim,
backed by Shamir, has refused
to pay them additional wages
for the extra duty.
Alternative means to
compensate the doctors were
discussed at a meeting of the
ministerial committee with
Histadrut Secretary General
Yisrael Kessar and Naum
Fassa, head of Kupat Holim.
They agreed that each
hospital would decide itself
how to reimburse the physi-
cians from special funds they
would receive to pay for the
second shifts.
Histadrut accepted the
proposal as a one-time solution
that would set no precedents
for future situations involving
the public sector.
Meanwhile, a judicial
commission set up to deal with
the overall question of the way
health care is provided in
Israel will hold its first
meeting this week.
Kashrut Appeal
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Conservative movement in Israel
will appeal to the Supreme Court unless the Jerusalem rabbinate
reverses its decision not to renew the kashrut certification of the
movement's youth hostel on Agron Street here.
Rabbi Pesach Schindler, director of the World Center for
Conservative Judaism, told The Jerusalem Post that the center
adheres to the kashrut and Sabbath laws.
It has had a kashrut certificate from the local rabbinate for the
14 years since it opened. The suden withdrawal occurred with no
The only reason seems to be that the Orthodox rabbis just
found out that the hostel was affiliated with Conservative
Judaism. Apparently it is the affiliation, not violation of the
kashrut laws, that prompted the action.

Rep. Smith's "Adopted" Refusenik On His Way
Yakov Rabinovich, a Jewish
refusenik who had been
"adopted" by Florida
Congressman Larry Smith,
has ben granted permission to
emigrate from the USSR after
10 years of refusal by the
Soviet government. Rabin-
ovich is now in Vienna
awaiting immigration papers
to allow him to join his family
in the U.S.
Congressman Smith, who
had continually pressured
Soviet authorities to allow
Rabinovich to leave, called his
release "a victory for the
cause of human rights in the
Soviet Union."
Rabinovich first applied for
permission to emigrate in
1978. His wife and two chil-
dren were allowed to leave in
1980, but he was denied
permission to join them on the
basis of his alleged "access to
state secrets." At the time, he
was employed as a ship-
building engineer but subse-
quently was fired and, until he
emigrated, worked in a factory
which manufactures shoe-
making equipment.
Since Rabinovich's separa-
tion from his family, his
daughter married and had a
child and his son graduated
from Brandeis University.
Cong. Smith called on the
community to "continue to
build an impenetrable front
line in the battle for human
rights in the Soviet Union. We
must be vigilant," he said, "in
pressuring the Soviet govern-
ment to extend the most
fundamental human rights to
our brothers and sisters who
continue to be held hostage."
