The satellite, dubbed "Ofek

what was described as a "low
elliptical orbit, circling the
globe from east to west once

Ofek is expected to have a

Premier Yitzhak Shamir

Israeli Economy
In Recovery
Israel's economy as a whole
has been able to overcome the
desruptions caused by the
Palestinian uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
But some sectors, heavily
dependent on the large Arab
market, have suffered severe
losses, according to the semi-
annual report of the Bank of
The central bank reported
that the economic slowdown of
the early months of this year
has been reversed.
The economy has adjusted to
the situation in which Palestin-
ian day laborers from the terri-
tories frequently fail to show
up for their jobs, the report
The main reasons for the
slowdown were shrinking
demand and a 40 percent drop
in the number hours worked by
Arab laborers.
But the economy is now sta-
bilizing and some sectors are
Nevertheless, because resi-
dents of the territories have
cut back on their purchases
from Israel, consumer indus-
tries have reported a 40 per-
cent drop in sales.
Especially hard hit are the
medical drug industry which
reported a 25 percent decline,
and the sale of cigarettes,
down an overall 15 percent.
Political Ploy:
Delay In Trade Inquiry
The Office of the U.S. Trade
Representative is delaying
hearings into Israel's treat-
ment of Palestinian workers
until after Election Day, partly
to eliminate potential Jewish
backlash to Vice President
George Bush's presidential
bid, a well-placed trade repre-
sentative source said.
Court Rejects Neo-Nazi's Appeal
BONN (JTA) Neo-Nazi
activist Karl-Heinz Hoffmann
lost his appeal against a nine-
and-a-half-year jail sentence.
The penalty was upheld by a
federal court in Karlsruhe, a
city in the southwestern part
of the Federal Republic.
Hoffmann, leader of a para-
military organization whose
members trained at Palestine
Liberation Organization bases
in Lebanon, was convicted on
June 30, 1986.
A Nurenberg court found
him guilty of forging docu-
ments, illegally possessing
arms and circulating Nazi and
anti-Semitic propoganda.
The cooperation between
Hoffmann and the PLO was
the most concrete evidence yet
of contacts between neo-Nazi
groups and Palestinian terror-
ists. The PLO has never
admitted the contacts,
although they have been
confirmed by the West
German courts.
The decision was made "to
ensure an orderly and deliber-
ative process,' the source
said, but also to prevent it
from "becoming an election-
year issue."
Stephen Silbiger, Washing-
ton representative of the
American Jewish Congress,
accused the trade office of
caving into pressure from the
Bush campaign.
Silbiger said that the Bush
campaign "did not want this to

Mubarak offered that upbeat
assessment during a conversa-

the Anglo-Jewish press, in general, and this
paper in particular, fulfill.
All newspapers of an honorable and credible
tradition provide both usable and necessary
news to aid readers in leading informed lives
and protect the freedoms that make American
life unmatched by any other in the free world.
The Anglo-Jewish press augments these
efforts. As an advocate, Jewish journalism
with an American history of almost 150 years
works to enlighten and protect Jewish life.
The Jewish Floridian has been educating,
informing and entertaining readers for more
than 60 years. We take seriously our obliga-
tion to support the Jewish community within
our own environs and beyond.
In covering events, especially locally, we are
forever cognizant of the responsibility to be
exquisitely even- ..

There is a canard
which begs
debunking; that a
journalist needs to
be distant and dis-
passionate about
the community covered.
We argue that position.
Those affiliated with The Jewish Floridian
have historically taken an impassioned inter-
est in Jewish life. With an intimate interest in
civic and communal and charitable endeavors,
The Jewish Floridian shares a stake in the
Jewish Community.
We stand by that stake and the freedom that
allows it to flourish.
Kaddish For Killing Field
The Soviet Union always offers special focus
as world Jewry celebrates Simcnat Torah.
Although the mandated rejoicing in the Torah
is not tied religiously to the festival of Sukkot,
as is Shemini Atzeret, it does coincide with the
High Holy Day period. As such, the day takes
on multiple meanings especially in Russia.
Routinely, the festival is marked by once-
outlawed festivities in the larger cities. And
we expect the same to be reported next week.
But as precursor, and as testament that
glasnost or openness and perestroika or
restructuring is truly beginning to make a
difference to Jewish life in the U.S.S.R., we
note with mixed feelings the Russian com-
memoration of Babi Yar.
The killing field close in to Kiev was the site
of mass murders of Ukrainian Jews in 1941.
More than 40 years passed before there was
acknowledgment official recognition that
Jews were the focal target in that Nazi-
inspired genocide.
And as the Stalinist penchant to purge
anything Jewish from Russian life undergoes
its own exile, more honest appraisal of Rus-
sian history is allowed to issue forth.
The Moscow observance last weekend at a
Jewish cemetery to mark the death at Babi
Yar had official participation and sanction. It
was reportedly the second year that such a
rally has been permitted.
Although there have developed in the Soviet
Union several chauvinistic and anti-Semitic
organizations in recent time, we take hope in
the increased numbers of refuseniks being
allowed to emigrate.
And, too, we note with poignant satisfaction
that all change even a belated communal
Kaddish indicates some small benefit to our
brethren in the Soviet Union.
Toxic Language; Cooperative Efforts
"Wise men, be guarded in
your words."
That is a teaching in the
"Ethics of the (Synagogue)
Fathers," an instruction that
came to mind as I watched the
summit meeting between
New York Mayor Ed Koch
and Rev. Jesse Jackson.
I don't know what actually
went on between them, but for
me, it suggested that there is
an important lesson to be
learned by many leaders from
family therapy.
The surest way to under-
mine a family or a marriage is
to engage in the unbridled use
of toxic language. Toxic
language poisons the family
atmosphere, and it can just as
surely poison and undermine
relations between racial and
religious groups.
Studies in prejudice instruct
us that the danger of verbal
violence is that frequently it
leads to physical violence.
Without minimizing real
problems, both blacks and
Jews need to be aware that the
strongest cooperation and
respect in the United States
Congress exists between
members of the Black
Congressional Caucus and the
Congressmen who are Jewish.
Predominantly Jewish
voters helped elect black
mayors in Philadelphia, Los
Angeles, Detroit, and Atlanta.
And it is superfluous to recall
the profound understanding
and empathy the late Dr.
Martin Luther King had for
central Jewish concerns, and
the reciprocal trust that the
Jewish people posited in him.
We have had more than
enough examples of hostility
and toxic words. Leaders of
both communities are needed
who are healers, and who
believe in therapy for our
larger human familv.

Tears of Oil Last Temptation of Arafat
King Hussein's bombshell
withdrawal from the "West
Bank" has now been followed
by a smoke grenade tossed
into the Middle East muddle
by the PLO and its henchmen
among the Palestinians in the
territories the "proclama-
tion of independence"
In deliberate mockery of all
principles of true liberty and
real independence, a terrorist
gang is to be anointed as a
govemment-in-exile thereby
posthumously adding insult to
such governments which
during World War II fled the
Nazi onslaught in
Europe. And, with no less than
Jerusalem as its capital, it is
threatening to proclaim itself
as a member oi the family of
nations and no doubt will
demand admission to the UN!
This, it is cynically
proclaimed by PLO
spokesmen, would not be
different from what Israel did
in 1948. Unfortunately,
fantastic as it may sound, it is
not impossible that, in one
form or another, it may occur
as soon as the so-called Pales-
tine National Council a
ragbag of adventurers, crimi-
nals and careerists ranging
from assassins to rogue profes-
sors will have been assem-
bled in Algiers.
More unbelievable still,
there is talk that Yasir Arafat
himself will make the
announcement before the
European Community, now
presided over by Spain, which
invited him to address them.
Is this "The Last Tempta-
tion of Arafat?"
However, macabre such a
joke would be, it is by no
means certain that it won't be
What will it mean for Israel?
One way to counteract what-
ever political advantage it may
reap for Arafat & Company is
to formally annex the terri-
tories and subject them to the
same laws and administration
as the rest of Israel, including
Jerusalem. This, presumably,
is the line favored by Prime
Minister Shamir and his
The alternative would be to
do nothing except try to woo
once again the "blushing
bride" disguished as the King
of Jordan and to look for non-
PLO Palestinians to discuss
The first course of action will
no doubt be met with furious
opposition outside Israel even
among her "friends." The
West Europeans will cry
"foul" and shed tears of oil.
The Americans depending
on their affiliation will claim
that it is most "inopportune"
at election time in the United
States to force an outgoing
government to react to such a
decision or to compel the
incoming one to do so.
In the UN, there will be
scenes unmatched perhaps
even by the rival circuses in
Atlanta and New Orleans
with everybody shouting in at
least six languages. The newly-
won prestige of the UN will
easily be lost again.
The real danger to Israel is

regional arms race, but does
put Israel into the "technologi-
cal race." With the launching,
it has gained an important
prestige advantage, he said.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres agreed that the Ofek
launching was not a military
move. He observed that "the
problem is not one of borders
or the level of our technologi-
cal prowess, but of the tension
and hatred in this region."
'The world of Tomorrow'
The launching cast a spot-
light on another politcal fig-
ure, Professor Yuval Ne'eman
of Tel Aviv University, an
internationally prominent
physicist who is leader of the
ultranationalist party Tehiya.
Ne'eman, who also heads
Israel's space agency,
described the launch as "very
clean, without any problems.
Ne'eman said the test satel-
lite will be followed by a scien-
tific satellite. He said decisions
will be made about which of a

an "implied" recognition of
Israel within the 1947 borders!
Israel's "good friends" may
use this to try once again to
force her to sit at the confer-
ence table with the now
"kosher" PLO.
We can only hope that
nothing will deter those
responsible for Israel's
security from meeting all
series of proposed scientific
experiements will be carried
out by nature satellites.
'This is an important step
which takes Israel into the
world of tomorrow," Ne'eman
said. He noted that satellites
are now a multibillion-dollar
business serving global com-
munications and a wide variety
of other purposes.
Ne'eman also referred to
media rumors of an Israeli spy
satellite. He said they were a
likely conclusion. Considering
"that we have defense and
security problems, they put
two and two together."
He admitted that there is a
"defense aspect" to the satel-
lite launching. That is a matter
to be discussed in the future by
the competent authorities,
Ne'eman said.
The spy satellite rumors
were fueled by the secrecy that
surrounded the launch. Until
Ofek was successfully on the
way to orbit, officials here
refused to comment.
Spy Satellite Too Costly
Ne'eman himself had dismis-
sed the reports as "more like
science fiction tales and far
from reality."
Israel's space scientists say
the theoretical capacity exists
to build and launch a high-
altitude spy satellite, but the
costs may be too much for
Israel to bear.
A low-altitude orbiter would
be cheaper, but of limited
value, the scientists say. It
would cover only a narrow
path, passing over the Middle
East region twice a day, have a
short lifetime and need to be
replaced frequently.
An intelligence satellite at
higher altitudes, set in a sta-
tionary orbit, could observe
regional developments on a
permanent, "real time" basis
and would have would have a
longer life span. But it would
cost billions to build.
Scientists agree that the
problem is financial, not tech-
nological. Israel is especially
strong on the optical computer
image enhancement technolo-
gies required, they say.
According to some obser-
vers, Israel's interest in a mili-
tary satellite to spy on the
Arab states may be an out-
come of the Jonathan Pollard
Pollard, a civilian intelli-
gence analyst employed by the
U.S. Navy, is serving a life
sentence in an American fed-
eral prison for spying on behalf
of Israel.
He sold Israelis material
that American intelligence
gathered on the Arab coutries
but did not share with Israel.
With Pollard out of business,
the Israelis need the means to
improve their own intelligence
Letters To The Editor
It occurred to me that the
enclosed letter from my grand-
daughter, Tobi Fradkin, is so
beautiful and uplifting about
Israel that its inclusion in The
Floridian might be valuable to
the reader.
Tobi is currently an
exchange student in her senior
year at the University of Con-
William Z. Fradkin, M.D.
Shalom From Israel
What can I say. I am over-
whelmed by the country of
Israel. Everything is beautiful
and new and exciting to me. I
feel very proud to be Jewish
here among so many others.
We are busy all the time. I'm
still taking the Ulpan class to
learn Hebrew. I'm doing very
well. Hebrew is a difficult lan-
guage, but I am eager to learn.
I haven't seen much of the
country yet. Only Tel Aviv and
Jerusalem. I'm waiting for my
three week break, before the
semester, starts to travel.
Time is going quickly and I am
missing my family and friends,
but I wouldn't give this experi-
ence up for anything in the
world. I'm meeting Jews from
all over the world and learning
about their lives and culture. I
love talking to the Israelis. We
are not tourists here. We ride
the buses to the markets and
practice the same daily sched-
ules including school, bank,
grocery store, so we really see
how they live.
With all the fighting that
goes on near the border, I can
honestly say that I feel very
safe here.
I have so much to tell you but
this card is small.

Community Endorses
Embezzlement Probe
BONN, (JTA) The leader
of West Germany's Jewish
community said he is not satis-
fied with the investigation of
the Werner Nachmann embez-
zlement scandal.
Heinz Galinski said he
believes the investigation
should be pursued without bias
to expose possible accom-
plices, whether they be Jews
or non-Jews.
Nachmann, who was
chairman of the Central
Council of Jews in Germany
for 20 years until his sudden
death last January, was found
to have misappropriated up to
$20 million provided by the
Bonn government to pay resti-
tution to Jewish Holocaust
Galinski discovered the
malfeasance shortly after he
took office as Nachmann s
Speaking to a West German
radio station in an interview,
Galinski said that family
members and close associates
of Nachmann "must have had
at least some knowledge" of
what happened.
He said he would leave it to
the state prosecution to clear
up the question of accomplices.
"We are all co-responsible in
a moral sense, because we had
too much confidence" in Nach-
mann, Galinski said.
Nachmann, a wealthy indu-
strialist with good connections
in government, was a pillar of
the community. "Nobody had
the slightest suspicion that he
would steal money that was to
go to victims of the Holo-
caust,'' Galinski said.
He praised the West German
media for its unsensational
coverage of the affair and for
not using the scandal to launch
an anti-Semitic campaign.
Galinski said some elements
in the country would try to use
the scandal to incite anti-
Jewish feelings, but they
would do so even if no Jews
lived in Germany and there
had been no Nachmann
Estonia Notes
Jewish Revival
revival of Jewish life is taking
place in the Soviet republic of
Estonia, according to a Dutch
specialist in Eastern European
Writing in the daily Het
Parool, the specialist, Dick
Verkijk, reported that a
Jewish cultural society,
purportedly the first in the
Soviet Union, was established
in Estonia and officially regis-
tered. It is said to have 250
members to date.
The society's first public
event was a gala concert of
Jewish music performed in the
Russian Theater in Tallinn, the
Baltic republic's capital. The
650 seats were sold out within
two hours, Verkijk said.
He said he spoke to two
members of the Executive of
the Jewish society, Samuel
Lazekin and Eugenia Loov.
They told him Hebrew lessons
would start next month.
Verkijk reported that about
5,000 .lews live in Estonia, the
same number as in 1939, when
it was an independent nation.
Most of the Jews who lived
there before World War II
were deported to their deaths
during the Nazi occupation.
After the war, Jews from
Moscow, Leningrad and other
parts of the Soviet Union
settled in Estonia, because the
atmosphere was less anti-
Semitic, Verkijk reported.
He said similar Jewish
cultural societies will soon be
established in the neighboring
Baltic republics of Latvia and
Lithuania, which also are part
of the Soviet Union.
Terrorists Captured In S. Lebanon
TEL AVIV (JTA) Four armed Lebanese terrorists
plotting a bombing in Israel were captured by an Israel
Defense Force patrol in the southern Lebanon security
One terrorist was seriously wounded in the exchange of
fire. There were no Israeli casualties.
The terrorists were identified as members of the
Lebanese Communist Party. The clash occurred on rough
terrain north of Taibeh village, less than four miles from
the Israeli border of the Galilee panhandle.
Winnipeg's Withering Jewish Population
Winnipeg's Jewish community
is aging, diminishing and
moving to the South End of
the city, according to a report
prepared by Touche Ross
Management Consultants for
the Winnipeg Jewish
Community Council's long-
range planning committee.
The report indicates that
Winnipeg's Jewish population
has continued the decline that
begin in the 1960s, though
population loss has slowed
down, compared with the
period between the 1971 and
1981 censuses.
For 40 years Winnipeg's
Jewish population was
stationary, with a population
in the neighborhood of 20,000.
The peak year was 1961. The
population now stands at just
under 14,500, with 27 percent
over 65. This compares with 23
percent in the 1981 census.
Winnipeg, formerly the third
largest Jewish community in
Canada, now is closer to fourth
and possibly fifth place, edged
out by Vancouver and rivaled
by Ottawa.
Israel Population Rises
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's population grew by just over
1.5 percent last year, reaching 4,455,000 at the New Year,
the Central Bureau of Statistics announced here.
Eighty-two percent of the population is Jewish, the
bureau noted.
Nearly 100,000 births were registered during the past
year, of whom 73,000 were Jews.
New immigrants totaled about 13,000 in 5748, about
1,000 more than the previous year.
Soviets Pressed on
Cancer-Ridden Refusenik
case of a Jewish refusenik
suffering from cancer has been
taken up at the highest level in
Moscow by Lord Plumb of
Britain, president of the Stras-
bourg-based Parliament of
Plumb is making the first
official visit to the Soviet
capital by a president of the
parliament. His spokesman,
Lionel Stanbrook, said that he
discussed the predicament of
Georgi Samoilovich with
Andrei Gromyko, president of
the USSR.
Plumb "asked Gromyko for
details about the case of the
Jewish refusenik, who is
suffering from cancer for
which there is treatment only
in the United States," Stan-
brook said.
The soviet OVIR office
informed Samoilovich that he
would not Ik? given a medical
visa for cancer therapy being
offered him at a hospital in
New Jersey. News of the
refusal was reported in Wash-
ington by Pamela Cohen, pres-
ident of the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews.
Samoilovich, 63, was doag-
nosed by a visiting American
doctor as having large-cell
It is essential that Samoi-
lovich undergo surgery not
available in Moscow within the
next few weeks, Lord Plumb's
office said.
Redgrave's Rights Not Violated
British actress Vanessa Red-
grave suffered a setback after
a federal appeals court in
Boston ruled that the Boston
Symphony Orchestra did not
violate her civil rights when it
canceled her performances,
following threats by protes-
It was the latest and prob-
ably the final chapter in the
legal battle between Redgrave
and the orchestra. It started in
1982 after the orchestra
decided to cancel Redgrave's
contract to narrate six per-
formances of Stravinsky's
"Oedipus Rex" in Boston.
The orchestra canceled her
appearance following threats
they received because of Red-
grave's support of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
The 3-2 decision by the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the First
Spy Trial in Recess
trial iff suspected Soviet spy
Shabtai Kalmanovitz is to
recess until December.
His trial opened behind
dosed doors in Tel Aviv
District Court with three
judges: Menahem 11 an,
Shoshana Herman and Zvi
According to defense
attorney Amnon Zichroni, the
first session was devoted to a
"mini-trial" about the validity
of the confession extracted
from Kalmanovitz by the Shin
Bet, Israel's internal security
The defendant claims that
the confession was extracted
from him by Shin Bet agents
using illegal methods.
Kalmanovitz, a Soviet-born
businessman with important
social, political and military
connections in Israel, was
arrested last December for
alleged espionage.
The case has electrified the
Israeli public, because
Kalmanovitz has been at the
center of previous scandals
and has ties to a number of
prominent Israeli officials.
He was reportedly close to
the late Premier golda Meir
and formerly served as an aide
to Samuel Flatto-Sharon, the
eccentric multimillionaire fugi-
tive from French justice who
served as a one-man Knesset
faction from 1977 to 1981.
Circuit said that the cancella-
tion of Redgrave's contract did
not violate the Massachusetts
Civil Right Act.
The court, however, upheld a
$12,000 award to Redgrave as
compensation for a lost role in
a Broadway play. A three-
member panel of the same
appeals court ruled in her
favor in October 1987.
The trial of Redgrave
against the orchestra, in which
the actress sought $5 million in
damages, went beyond a sim-
ple breach of contract case and
turned into a battle of freedom
of speech and the mix of art
and politics.
The orchestra said at the
time it decided to cancel the
contract after it received
letters and calls warning that
there would be picketing and
other protests against Red-
grave, because of her strong
opposition to Israel and her
embrace of the PLO.
Redgrave won the first
round of her legal battle when
a federal jury ruled in
November 1984 that the
orchestra breached the
contract and awarded her
$1 ()(),()()() in compensation and
$27,500 in lost wages.
But in February 1985,
District Court Judge Robert
Keaton dismissed the $100,000
award and ruled Redgrave's
civil rights were not violated.
