PLO: Declare
Palestinian State
JERUSALEM (JTA) Leaders of the various Palestine
Liberation Organization factions have agreed unanimously to
declare an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, according to reports here.
The decision was adopted during a three-day meeting of the
PLO leadership in Tunis. It was reported by Salah Khalaf, a
senior PLO official popularly known as Abu Iyad.
The unified command of the Palestinian uprising in the
administered territories issued a statement urging the Palestine
National Council to declare an independent state. "Communique
No. 27" suggested that such a state be put under international
auspices for the present.
According to Khalaf, the PNC will convene to act on the
matter before the Israeli elections on Nov. 1.
The PNC is sometimes referred to as the Palestinian parlia-
ment in exile. Israelis consider it to be an adjunct of the PLO.
Moves to declare an independent Palestinian state have
gathered momentum since King Hussein of Jordan announced
July 31 that he was severing all ties to the West Bank.
Close aides to Vasir Arafat have endorsed the idea, but the
PLO chairman himself has appeared unwilling to make such a
move without achieving a consensus among the terrorist
organization's rival factions.
PNC meetings aimed at reaching such a consensus have been
repeatedly postponed since August.

Secretary of State George
Shultz cautioned here that the
recent loosening of Soviet emi-

"can change," and urged Jew-
ish leaders to "never let up in

Shultz was being honored by
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society for his work on behalf
of human rights, and Jewish
emigration in particular.
The secretary addressed
about 270 people at a dinner at
the Grand Hyatt Hotel, at
which he received the HIAS
1988 Liberty Award for his
"determined pursuit of free-
dom of emigration for Soviet
Shultz said he accepted the
award with a greater feeling of
appreciation than when he was
honored in 1984 by the
National Conference on Soviet
"I didn't feel good about
receiving that award." he said.
"because our efforts up to that
time had not been very suc-
cessful. But I feel a lot better
now. We have seen results in
human terms.
"Still, we must never let up
in our efforts to help people
leave if they wish, or to live the
kind of life they want to lead
where they are.
"We have to keep working
on it. It can change. So we
must stay with it, and keep
working," he said.
The award was presented by
Ben Zion Leuchter, president
of HIAS. the international
immigrant aid society of the
Jewish people, founded in
Leuchter praised Shultz's
perseverance on behalf of
Soviet Jews and all persons
seeking human rights.
Speaking of Jewish "historic
memory," Leuchter specu-
lated "how different world his
tory would have been, how
different Jewish history would
have been, if this good and
great man had been secretary
of state from 1937 to IM6."
President Reagan dedicated
the cornerstone of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum
with a denunciation of anti-
Semitism and a vow that "the
Jewish people will never stand
alone against tyranny."
Former President Jimmy
Carter, in a message to the
ceremony, said the museum is
a promise that "never again
will the world stand silent,
never again will the world look
the other way or fail to act in
time to prevent this terrible
crime of genocide."
He reminded the audience
that he had created the Presi-
dent's Commission on the Hol-
ocaust in 1979, which even-
tually led to the decision to
create the museum.
He said he was "looking for
ward" to joining Reagan and
his successor at the ceremony
when the museum opens in
late 1990. The museum is on
land donated by the federal
government, but the $170 mil-

Kahane appeared before the
court with his attorney,
Aharon Pappo.
Deputy Attorney General
Dorit Beinish, arguing for the
state, submitted as evidence
bills Kahane introduced in the
Knesset and quotations from
Kach literature.
She said they proved the
party is "racist, contrary to
the democratic character of
the state."
These included proposed leg-
islation that would make inter-
marriage or cohabitation
between Jews and non-Jews a
criminal offense; would separ-
ate Jews from gentiles at
beaches; and would deny non-
Jews the right of appeal to
Israel's supreme court.
"Everything (I say) is based
on halacha and the Bible," said
Kahane. "This is not an
attempt to ban Kahane, but
rather a Judaism which is
thousands of years old."
His lawyer was more circum-
spect, claiming that the media
was biased against Kahane
and therefore took his remarks
out of context.
He insisted that Kach is not
undemocratic "because it does
not question the structure of
elected agencies and the elec-
tions to the Knesset."
The movement "is not racist
because racism can only be
interpreted on a biological and
hereditary background,"
Pappo contended.

When asked how they would

Likewise, 41 percent said
Robertson was anti-Semitic,
and support for the Demo-
cratic candidate increased to a

about Robertson as a vice pres-

Cohen said the results were
consistent with a separate
finding, which showed that
three-quarters of those Jews
surveyed believe anti-
Semitism is a serious problem

On the heels of the warming relations
between Hungary and Israel, it is indeed
welcome news that diplomatic channels with
Poland and the Jewish State are widening, as
When Israel Foreign Minister Shimon Peres

It is a long way in miles and tortured history
since Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek. A
more recent strain is linked directly to the Six
Day War, when as did most of Eastern
EuropePoland cuts its diplomatic ties to
Israel in 1967.
Now, as the world grows increasingly
smaller and economic, political and cultural
networks interlock more tightly, the import of
this move multiplies.

In October, etc.
The first Monday in October saw the open-
ing session of the Supreme Court. What the
court's calendar will see bodes well for the
nation's conservatives.
Since the appointment and approval of
Justice Anthony Kennedy, there is a definitive
swing to the right predicted on issues on this
country's social agenda.
When cases to be determined come before
the court in the areas of civil rights quotas,
Sabbath observances and church/state
abridgement, Jews would be wise to measure
the movement to the right.
While Ronald Reagan is a lame-duck presi-

It would be wise, therefore, to look to this
election year's candidates and realize that
their potential reach goes beyond the grasp of
the White House. This year's elected presi-

Christianity's Historic Obligation
those who have doubts about
the "practical" value of posi-
tive Jewish-Christian rela-
tions, it would be instructive to
study the critical role played
by philo-Semitism in the crea-
tion of the State of Israel.
In his comprehensive book,
"History of Israel," Professor
Howard Sachar observed that
when Dr. Chaim Weizmann
was desperately seeking to win
the support of Great Britain as
"the protectorate over a Jew-
ish homeland," he found his
greatest response among Brit-
ish Protestant evangelicals.
There was, Sachar writes.
"a mystical veneration with
which many devout Anglo-
Saxon (or Welsh or Scottish)
Protestants regarded the Old
Testament traditions, the Chil-
dren of Israel, and particularly
the Holy Land itself."
These believing Christians
included such central personal-
ities as Prime Minister Lloyd
George; Foreign Secretary
Lord Balfour (who wrote the
final version of the famed
Declaration); Jan Christian
Smuts, a Cabinet member of
South Africa; and Lord Pal-
Lloyd George wrote that in
his first meeting with Weiz-
mann in December 1914, his-
toric sites in Palestine were
mentioned that were "more!
familiar to me than those o
the Western front."
These men, states Sachar
"felt deeply Christianity's his
toric obligation to the Jews,'
and that among other rea
sons resulted in the Balfour
Declaration and the mandate
for a Jewish National Home in
In analogous ways, that
Bible-based philo-Semitism
exists widely among millions
of American Christians who
support Israel, with all her
present difficulties. The Jew
ish-Christian dialogue is the
surest force that nurtures
these positive feelings towan
Jews and Israel.

In a letter to DNC chairman
Paul Kirk, Thomas Neumann.
executive vice president
of B'nai B'rith, expressed his
appreciation of the DNC's reit-
eration of the Democratic-
Party's "strong support for
Israel and unwavering intoler-
ance of bigotry and anti-
Semitism." But Neumann con-
tinued, "these words are not
enough. In this case, they must
be backed by action."
.Neumann pointed out that
according to media reports
Barrow called Louis Farrak-
han "one of the greatest, most
outstanding leaders of our
day," and Farrell refused to
sign a Ix>s Angeles City Coun-
cil resolution condemning Far-
rakhan's anti-Semitism.
"Accordingly," wrote Neu-
mann, "B'nai B'rith adds its
voice to the growing calls from
prominent Americans in-
cluding U.S. Representatives
from both parties asking the
DNC to look into Barrow's
allegiance to a preacher of
hatred as well as Farrell's
crass insensitivity to anti-
Semitism, and if warranted,
take the appropriate action."

Valerie Berman, associate
director in ADL's Miami
office, told the delegates meet-
ing recently in Miami that
"early intervention in school-
based intergroup conflict can
head off serious confrontations
between religious, racial and
ethnic groups."
At workshops, ADL
described specific strategies to
be used in schools and conflict
management techniques.
Delegates also heard an
overview of extremist and
youth gang activities in Flor-
ida, as ADL's assistant South-
ern counsel Joan Peppard
noted that 80 percent of those
convicted of crimes of bias are
under 20 years old.
In the last few years, ADL
has been closely tracking skin-
head youth gangs whose ideol-

Semitic and racism. Last May,
in cooperation with law

day, Oct. 23, at 11 a.m.
The facilities, at 151 N.E. 52
St., will be open for touring
following the dedication. Visi-
tors will be able to walk
through a model showcase of
the older adult's "apartment
of the future," fully-equipped
with an adjustable kitchen
sink, electronic recessed tub,
and appliances activated by
voice, light and even move-
ment sensors. A second hands-
on exhibit will demonstrate
how the elderly can live more
independently in their homes
now, with help from some
easy-to-use adaptive gadgets.
The exhibits are part of the
Technology Center, a program
focusing on ways the home
environment can be adapted to
meet the physical and psycho-
logical needs of the elderly,
which is located at the Stein
Gerontological Institute.
Research at Stein is also
bringing advanced computer
technology into the domain of
the elderly, as older adults are
learning to work with personal
computers as communications
devices and memory aids.

Nursing Home Rated 'Superior"
The Office of Licensure of
the State of Florida's Depart-
ment of Health and Rehabilita-
tive Services (HRS) has
awarded the Miami Jewish

Aged at Douglas Gardens

Every year, HRS conducts
an extensive survey of all nurs-

when HRS began its rating
system, MJHHA has been con-
sistently rated superior.
A superior rating is awarded
to those nursing facilities that
not only meet standards, but
exceed them. An HRS team of
inspectors evaluates the facil-
ity for quality of care, deter-
mined in part by a visit with
every one of the residents. The
survey at MJHHA took three
MJHHA serves more than
400 residents at the 17-acre

Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
That is the word Goldie
Goldstein uses to describe her
decision to retire from the
Holocaust Documentation and
Education Center. It's been
almost nine years. She was the
founding director, helped the
program grow and worked
sometimes six days a week
with not a penny in salary.
If the anguish of decision
reduced her to tears in recent
weeks, there are bound, she
admits, to be more tears when
she finally steps down as exec-
utive vice president and volun-
teer director on Jan. 1. Ini-
tially the organization was call-
ed the Southeastern Florida
Holocaust Memorial Center.
Goldstein discussed her
plans and sketched the growth
and future hopes of the center
in an interview, but not before
her staff came rushing forth
with accolades about their
departing leader.
Goldstein returns the com-
pliment and says she is leaving
the center well staffed. Assist-
ant Director Rositta Kenigs-
berg will become the center's
first paid full-time director.
Kenigsburg is the daughter
of Holocaust survivors and is
president of the International
Network of Children of Holo-
caust survivors.
Goldstein, who arrived in
America as a child with her
parents after a trans-Atlantic
crossing from her native
Odessa, Russia, lives in Bay
Harbor Islands with her hus-
band Sol.
IN a letter Goldstein will
read to her board next week,
she says she will list two major
reasons for her retirement.
"First and most important,
is that my husband Sol has
been retired for four-and-a-
half years and has been very
patiently waiting for my
"Secondly," the letter con-
tinues, "the center is growing
so rapidly, that it now requires
a full-time executive director."
Goldie Goldstein
The center has come a long
way from its humble start to
comfortable office space at the
North Miami-Bay Vista Cam-
pus of Florida International
Originally, the center was
given free space in a trailer; it
had only desks and file cabin-
ets. "Not even paper clips and
pencils," she recalls.
But there was a mission. It
began sometime around 1978
when Goldstein was complet-
ing course work to earn a
degree in Professional Studies
at Barry University.
As she was granted her
diploma from then-Barry Pres-
ident Sister Trinita Flood,
Goldstein was told that two
men in the community, Arnold
Picker and Abe Halpern, were
starting a Holocaust center
primarily to take testimony
from Holocaust survivors, pro-
tectors and liberators. Gold-
stein's husband was not well at
the time so rather than take on
the full-time paid position as
director, she offered to volun-
teer her services, considering
the project invaluable.
THE center doors opened in
1980. With seed money
donated by Picker, the first
secretary was hired. Goldstein
began making appeals to
friends, college and university
administrators to get the
basics typewriters, and
office supplies.
While other centers through-
out the United States take
documentaries of Holocaust
victims, Goldstein added a
dimension to the program that
makes South Florida's first
and only such center unique.
It involved a 60-hour train-
ing program for interviewers.
Professors, educators, people
with expertise in interviewing
skills take the candidates
through the intensive course

Rationale Behind
Blocking Parties
Central Election Committee
narrowly upheld the right of
the Progressive List for Peace,
a left-wing pro-Palestinian
Israeli Arab party, to run in'
the Knesset elections Nov. 1.
The committee acted only a
day after it voted overwhelm-
ingly to bar Rabbi Meir
Kahane's extremist Kach
Party from participating in the
elections, on grounds that it
engages in incitement to rac-
Both decisions have been
appealed to the High Court of
Justice, Israel's supreme
Kahane is seeking a reversal
of the ban on Kach, and the
right-wing Tehiya and Likud
parties are suing to remove
the Progressive List for Peace
from the ballot.
The court is expected to ren-
der its verdict momentarily.
Justice Eliezer Goldberg, the
election committee's chairman
who is also a member of the
High Court, cast the tie-
breaking vote in favor of the
Progressive List for Peace.
Opposition to the Progres-
sive List centered on its
alleged rejection of Israel's
role as the state of the Jewish
But the party's attorney
argued that by demanding a
separate Palestinian state
alongside Israel, the Progres-
sive List in effect recognizes
Israel as the Jewish state.
The Central Election com-
mittee's decisions in both cases
stemmed from an amendment
to the Basic Law, which the
Knesset adopted in 1984.
The amendment provides
that a party can be barred
from the Knesset if it rejects
the principle that Israel is the
state of the Jews, if it rejects
democracy; or if incites to race
Justice Goldberg voted to
bar Kahane's party on the rac-
ism charge. He did not go
along with the smaller major-
ity which held it was opposed
to democracy.
He argued that the lawmak-
ers, by singling out racism a
form of anti-democracy as a
disqualifying factor, clearly
implied that the burden of
proof of racism is much lighter
than that regarding other
forms of hostile ideology.
Those other forms. Goldberg
stressed, must be proven to
constitute a real and present
threat to the fabric of society.
His position on the Progres-
sive List was that it has not
been proven to present such a
Informed observers said
Goldberg's argument sought
to confine the effect of the
Basic Law to Kach, and pre-
vent it from becoming a prece-
dent for use against other mar-
ginal or extremist groups,
"however unpopular or crude
their views may be."
Warming Relations
With Poland
NEW YORK, (JTA) Israel
and Poland have agreed to
upgrade their diplomatic mis-
sions in Tel Aviv and Warsaw
and to turn them into inde-
pendent missions. The two
missions are presently operat-
ing under the diplomatic spon-
sorship of the Netherlands.
The agreement was reached
in a meeting between Israeli
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and his Polish counter-
part, Tadeusz Olechowski.
According to an aide to
Peres, it was agreed that the
new level of official ties
between Israel and Poland will
be defined in talks to be held
soon by diplomats of both
In addition, Peres and Ole-
chowski also acknowledged
that a high-level economic
delegation from Poland will
visit Israel in the near future,
to discuss increased economic
cooperation between the two
Israeli diplomats said that
the warming in relations
between Israel and Poland
could be seen as part of a
general trend of improved
relations between the Jewish
state and the East European
All of the Soviet bloc coun-
tries, except Romania, severed
diplomatic ties with Israel fol-
lowing the 1967 Six-Day War.
As part of that apparent
thaw in relations, sources here
disclosed that Abba Eban, the
veteran Israeli statesman and
Knesset member, will leave
next month as the foreign min-
ister's emissary for talks in
Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslo-
vakia and Yugoslavia.
Eban, according to the
sources, will explain Israel's
position in the Middle East and
stress its desire for improved
relations with these countries,
on diplomatic, economic and
cultural levels.
Pentagon OKs Yarmulke
- U.S. Defense Secretary
Frank Carlucci rescinded a
Pentagon directive that would
have allowed military officers
to bar the wearing of visible
religious garb "under unique
circumstances, such as basic
and initial military skills and
specialty training."
The original directive was
issued Feb. 3, to help imple-
ment a bi I signed into law a
few weeks earlier that pro-
tected,, among other things,
the right of Orthodox Jews in
the military to wear "neat and
conservative" yarmulkes, as
long as they do not interfere in
the performance of military
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D-
N.Y.) and Sen. Frank Lauten-
berg (D-N.J.), who sponsored
the bills in Congress last year,
argued in a letter to Carlucci
that the directive "would
undermine, if not eliminate,
the effect of the religious
apparel amendment."
Rabin is
On Force
Israel Defense Force will con-
tinue to exercise "the maxi-
mum force permitted by law"
to quell unrest in the adminis-
tered territories, Defense Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin declared.
He spoke during another
bloody weekend of violence, as
Palestinians marked the end of
the 10th month of their upris-
Three Palestinians were kil-
led in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip in clashes with the IDF.
The violence continued in Jer-
usalem, where police dispersed
Arab women demonstrators
who were stoning security
forces and disrupting traffic.
IDF troops raided dozens of
villages in the territories to
quell violent demonstrations.
Scores of Palestinians were
wounded and many more were
Speaking during a visit to
Beersheba, Rabin said he takes
full responsibility for the IDF's
tough policies, and he main-
tained that they are working.
"The mass demonstrations,
which were the symbol of the
uprising, no longer exist,
because the army has instruc-
tions to suppress them as they
develop," Rabin the defense
minister said.
"The State of Israel must
exercise force in the territor-
ies, the maximum force per-
mitted by law, to face those
inciters. And I believe that this
is so essential that we shall
eventually win with patience."
About 250 Palestinians have
been killed since the uprising
began last Dec. 9, according to
Rabin. He said about 18,000
have been jailed. There are
about 6,000 Palestinians pres-
ently under detention for par-
ticipating in riots, in addition
to some 4,000 imprisoned for
terrorist acts.
Rivlin Brings
JNF Message
Moshe Rivlin, world chair-
man of the Jewish National
Fund (JNF) will meet with
senators, congressmen and
members of the executive
branch, as well as with major
Jewish leaders throughout the
U.S., presenting a series of
addresses on the current wave
of arson plaguing Israel's for-
ests and pastureland. Since
April, over 1,000 fires have
been set, ravaging 85,000
acres of forests and pasture-
lands and destroying one mil-
lion trees at a cost of over $40
Rivlan will also review
JNF's emergency reforesta-
tion efforts, including the "ten
for one" campaign, which calls
for the replacement of every
one tree destroyed by arson-
ists with ten new saplings.
JNF is also appealing for funds
to purchase the latest fire-
fighting equipment: fire
engines, forest observation
towers and communications

the interviewee through mem-
ories of the most brutal
moments of his or her life. The
course itself is given once a
year and begins Oct. 5.
From the small trailer and
one secretary, the center now
nine years later houses
five paid staff including an
assistant director, director of
Documentation and Research,
director of Holocaust Educa-
tion Outreach, a bookkeeper
and a secretary.
"I could have gotten paid
from the beginning but I chose
not to," Goldstein says in
answer to a question. "It was
my service to the community."
Of the several aspects of the
program, Goldstein says she
will most miss Student Aware-
ness Day. Several times a
year, as many as 700 students
from private and public
schools gather at FIU for a
full-day program on prejudice.
GOLDSTEIN vividly recalls
the time a high school student
stood up in front of his peers
after one such session. Tears
were streaming down his face
as he admitted he had been
prejudiced but his attitude had
changed. His peers reacted by
giving the shaken youth a
standing ovation.
Many of the students also
hear from protectors, non-
Jews who risked their own
lives to protect and hide Jews
from Hitler's campaign.
"I hope in my prayers, that
these young people as they
learn about the result of preju-
dice will take this message
home to their family and
friends," Goldstein says.
Since the center has been
opened, over 550 taped inter-
views have been made on
video. These testimonies are
made available to public and
private schools in Dade
Goldstein confides that she
recently met with Miami Arch-
bishop Edward McCarthy and
Sister Trinita Flood to discuss
bringing the Holocaust educa-
tion program into their paro-
chial schools.
Goldstein is planning to
remain on the center's Board
of Directors and says she will
be accessible to staff. She does
have some short and long term
goals, however.
SINCE the Goldsteins have
a weekend home near the
Broward/Palm Beach area, she
says she will work to form a
coordinating agency/clearing-
house for seniors who wish to
volunteer in community activi-
ties there.
As for the Holocaust Center,
Goldstein says she would like
to see a permanent exhibition
center one day. It would
include Holocaust memorabilia
and house tapes and trans-
cripts for community use.
"I also envision thousands of
students learning the truth of
the Holocaust in their schools
because I'm hoping the Florida
state school system will very
soon incorporate Holocaust
education into their curricu-
Meanwhile, the center is still
looking for a free-standing
permanent home hopefully
on FIU's campus.
And meanwhile, the tears
will continue for a few months.
"This was like my baby,"
Goldstein said. "Somebody
said to me when I first got into
this, 'Why do you want to get
into something so depressing.'
"But it's not depressing
when you realize why you're
doing it. It's very uplifting.
Because you know the people
who died didn't die in vain."
U.S. Approves Immunity
The Reagan administration
has granted a limited form of
diplomatic immunity to
roughly 50 officials in Israel's
military procurement mission
in New York.
State Department spokes-
woman Phyllis Oakley
announced that from now on.
the United States will consider
the 250-person mission as an
"annex to the Israeli Consu-
late" in New York.
The 50 represent the Israeli
defense professionals, while
the others are support person-
The officials are being
granted "consular immunity,"
which would protect them
from U.S. prosecution for
activities directly related to
their official functions.
Oakley said such agreements
usually do not apply retroac-
tively. The procurement mis-
sion has been cited in a number
of U.S. government probes,
including a 1986 case in which
eight officials were subpoen-
aed for allegedly exporting
materials for cluster bombs
without U.S. permission.
The mission, an arm of the
Israel Defense Ministry, nego-
tiates contracts with U.S.
defense firms seeking a share
of the $1.8 billion in annual
U.S. military aid to Israel.
"Most other countries that
conduct defense procurement
activities from offices in Wash-
ington do so within their
embassies (there), and are
therefore covered by diploma-
tic immunities and privileges,"
she added.

News that Stephen Mernick,
34, put in the winning bid of
$115 million for the PTL
assets, mostly in Fort Mill,
S.C., surprised the Jewish
community here, where Mer-

a mystery man.

continue to be used for Chris-
tian purposes.
It includes a television stu-
dio, the Heritage USA theme
park, a campground, a church
and private housing. PTL's
debts exceed $130 million.
If the creditors and U.S.
bankruptcy court support the
recommendation of
trustee M.L. Benton, Mernick
must come up with $50 million
by Dec. 1, whe the deal is
closed. The balance is payable
in annual installments until
Mernick's businesses in Can-

Hamilton, Ont. It has ceased
producing tires and Mernick
apparently intends to sell off
its assets.
Mernick is a member of the
Clanton Park Synagogue, an
Orthodox congregation in the
Toronto suburb of Downsview.
At the news conference in
Charlotte, his lawyers read a
statement in which Mernick
said: "While I am not a Chris-
tian, I have a great deal of
respect for the depth of the
religious feeling of the many
thousands of Christians who
have supported the Heritage
Ministries over the years."
According to some obser-
vers, that statement might
indicate that Mernick is invit-
ing bidders to lease or pur-
chase the property for Chris-
