understood U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz's decision
to allow "substantive talks"
between representatives of the
United States and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith said the
United States is "living up to
its commitments." Both the
American Jewish Congress
and the American Jewish
Committee said Shultz acted
"correctly." The Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions called the decision a "vic-
tory" for Shultz.

PLO seemed to have accepted

tions for dialogue, nearly all

Shultz, "our object is peace." (AP/Wide World Photo)
the groups released state-
ments demanding that PLO
leader Yasir Arafat be made to
match his "magic words" with
"Yasir Arafat has now met
the technical requirements for
a dialogue with the United
States,' said Warren Eisen-
berg, director of the Interna-
tional Council of B'nai B'rith.
But, he added, "the PLO has
to show through deeds that it
has finally come to terms with
Israel's existence and intends
to pursue the path of peace
and eschew violence."
Morris Abram, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations, said at a news
conference that Secretary of
State George Shultz believed
"honestly" that Arafat had
met U.S. demands for dia-
logue, as outlined in a 1975
U.S. Memorandum of Agree-
ment with Israel.
But Abram implied that the
United States should ask even
more of the PLO, and he went
so far as to spell out one of
those deeds.
In a statement drafted at a
meeting with representatives
of the 46 Conference of Presi-
dents constituent organiza-
tions, Abram said that the
PLO should be made to repudi-
ate its National Covenant.
"There can be no progress

future acts of terrorism are
traceable to the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, the
United States will expect
those involved to be expelled
from the PLO, the State
Department's top specialist on
the Middle East said.
In such a scenario, the
United States "will expect the
PLO leadership to disassociate
itself from the terrorist act
and to take disciplinary action,
"including expelling those
involved from the organiza-
tion," said Richard Murphy,
assistant secretary of state for
Near Eastern and South Asian
affairs. He spoke on ABC-TV's
"This Week with David Brink-
ley" program.
President-elect George Bush
reiterated that position when
he told a news conference that
opening a dialogue with the
PLO does not mean the United
States is softening its opposi-
tion to terrorism.
"I don't care whether it
comes from a faction of the left
No Tolerance for Terrorism
or from the center or right or
wherever. I don't think that
we should indicate any willing-
ness to be tolerant of terror-
ism from the PLO," Bush said.
But it appears that the
United States will not hold the
PLO accountable for continued
violence in the Israeli-admini-
stered territories, as it will in
other parts of the world.
Another top State Department
policymaker drew a distinction
between acts of terrorism and
the year-old Palestinian up-
rising in the territories.
"The intifada when it
emerged was not a byproduct
of a PLO decision; it reflected
a reaction to prolonged occu-
pation. So the reaction of peo-
ple to occupation is not going
to cease immediately,"
Michael Armacost, under-
secretary of state for political
affairs, said on CBS-TV's
"Face the Nation."
Also speaking on the CBS
program was Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres, who
left the door open to talks with
PLO members who are not
"shooting or killing."
Peres said he is "ready to sit
with every Palestinian, no
matter what his biography
was, if he is not shooting and
killing, if he is ready to talk, if
he represents his people, and if
he seeks peace."
Asked about a possible next
step for Israel to take, follow-
ing the PLO's move to re-
cognize Israel, Peres said that
his country must first see that
Arafat's renunciation of ter-
rorism is sincere. "Let's wait a
month, a couple of months,
and see if this is really going to
happen," Peres suggested.
A key obstacle to Israel
believing Arafat is sincere may
be whether it considers the
PLO accountable for continued
Palestinian violence in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Peres said he includes
such violence as traceable to
Arafat. "We see to include it,
because for us, if a baby is
being killed or wounded by a
stone, what does it matter
what is the name?"
He presented a challenge to
the PLO on the West Bank. "If
the Palestinians would stop
violence right away, yester-
day, the whole feeling, the
whole emotions in Israel would
be entirely different."
Peres said he believes the
PLO has recently moderated
its position. "Until now the
PLO would never say the
expression which is called
'peace' or the expression
which is called 'Israel.' They
wanted Israel without a peace
or a peace without an Israel."
But, he added, "now the
question is: Is that a change in
the language or is that a
change in the position?"
In contrast to Peres, Likud
Knesset member Binyamin
Netanyahu, appearing on the
Brinkley show, seemed to
reject any PLO moderation
outright. "The PLO uses
declarations of peace as a tac-
tic of war," he said. He noted
that Winston Churchill, Great
Britain's prime minister dur-
ing World War II, "refused to
have any dealings with Hitler"

Students Memorialize Holocaust Victims
Redeeming a pledge made in
front of the barbed wire fence
of the Nazi death camp, Bir-
kenau, a group of Dade, Brow-
ard and Palm Beach County
students, participants in this
year's March of the Living,
will dedicate a local memorial
for the six million who per-
ished during the Holocaust.
The students, who were cho-
sen by the Central Agency for
Jewish Education (CAJE),
sponsors of Student Partici-
pants of the March of the
Living, will gather with area
rabbis and cantors Sunday,
Jan. 8, 11:30 a.m., at Menorah
Memorial Gardens, 2100 West
Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale.
The dedication of Memorial
Stele is cosponsored by CAJE
and Menorah Chapels.
The project was initiated by
one of the marchers, Daniel
Ballon, who preserved and
brought back to the U.S. ashes
and soil from the death camps
visited on the students' trip.
The memorial will feature
etched and carved granite
depicting the gates of the
entrance to Auschwitz. The
design and propery were also
provided by Menorah Memo-
rial Gardens.
The students had concluded
their trip to Poland with a visit
to Israel. In remembrance of
this affirmation of life, soil
from the Mount of Olives will
be sealed within the memorial

A Forward Step
Responding to appeals both from President
Herzog and top representatives of world
Jewry, Prime Minister Shamir has formed a
coalition government in Israel.
Both the Likud and Labor party leaders had
to overcome major opposition internally to
achieve the new agreement. But the selection
of the top cabinet posts appears to be the most
representative alignment possible.
While Washington seemed to prefer the
Peres stance in favor of an international peace
conference, neither the Reagan-Bush Admin-
istration nor world Jewry is likely to protest
the final coalition.
There are those who have hastily concluded
that the new Israeli government is unable to
meet the challenges inherent in the PLO's new
political power.
A far better attitude is to give both Shamir's
coalition and President-Elect Bush time to set
their respective agendas. What has waited 40
years can wait a few more weeks.
Reaction To The Inevitable
Would that we were wrong.
For 13 years now, the United States has
stood firm in a principled posture neither to
acknowledge, deal nor negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization. Former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and
later President Reagan laid the foundation
for any potential dialogue by demanding a
troika of prerequisites: that the PLO explicitly
recognize the State of Israel; that the PLO
renounce rather than simply denounce
terrorism in all its forms; and that the PLO
recognize UN Resolutions 242 and 338 as the
bases for a peace settlement.
Finally, a catch-22 scenario. In spite of the
U.S. insistence that PLO Chairman Yasir
Arafat was too much of a terrorist to be
eligible for a visa for entry purposes, Secret-
ary of State George Shultz was forced to open
talks with the PLO because its recalcitrant
titular head finally uttered the requisite
The open sesame salvo may indeed be a
Pandora's box instead.
Like the mythical figure whose action
released into the world untold ills, the verbal
transaction of this week past will surely have
repercussions rippling on shores far from
landlocked Switzerland.
The first and foremost, from this paper's
perspective, is that Israel should be left
even by perception in a singularly lonely
and isolated political locale. While the United
States has reiterated time and again that its
overture was one of contact rather than
substantive negotiations, it appears on the
world screen that Israel is the last player to
make its entrance.
To add to the isolation, Israel is now being
portrayed as intransigent when in fact its
position is one of self-protection.
In an interview last week with The Jewish
Florid in n, Meir Rosenne, former ambassador
from Israel to the United States, suggested
of South Broward
that instead of a three-prong test for the PLO,
as dictated by the U.S., Israel has its own
two-part litmus test to measure PLO sincer-
According to Rosenne, Israel needs to see a
change in the PLO covenant which pres-
ently calls for the destruction of a Zionist
presence rather than a vocal recognition.
And in lieu of a verbal renouncement of
terrorism, Israel demands a cessation of the
violence in the administered territories and
Now, in a clever ploy of diminished expecta-
tions, Arab League spokesmen and other
apologists for the PLO are excusing before
the fact terrorist actions against Zionist
targets. By explaining that Arafat cannot
control radicals within the umbrella organiza-
tion, the chairman may not be held responsible
for any such behavior that does not conform to
the newly revised international persona for
the PLO.
Consequently, Arafat has nothing to lose
according to this thesis. He won't be damned if
he does or doesn't stop the terrorist activities
of his Palestinian cohorts.
That, of course, is not what the United
States is demanding. Ronald Reagan used
language exquisite in its strength: the
renouncement of terrorism must be "perva-
sive and permanent" for the U.S. not to pull
out of these fledgling contacts. We support
that stance, which simply put is that the PLO
must match its words with deeds.
Still to be determined is whether the inti-
fada described by one Arab League as
"ennobling" the cause of Palestinian self-
determination will cease. Still to be decided
is how Arafat will be dealt with by radical
forces within his Oriental world. If his "float-
ing constituency" actually sees him as leading
the vanguard out of the third world of realpol-
itick, then perhaps the moves last week will
have been prescient.
Until and unless all appropriate and demo-
cratic demands are met by those 'former'
terrorists, we cannot but hold out skeptical
hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Would that we were wrong.
U.S. Negative
On Settlements
The State Department reiter-
ated its longstanding position
that the establishment of addi-
tional Israeli settlements in
the administered territories is
"not helpful" in advancing
Middle East peace prospects.
Department spokeswoman
Phyllis Oakley would not com-
ment directly on a Likud-
Labor compromise to build
eight new settlements in the
coming year.
But she said the United
States considers the building
of new settlements as "not
helpful in moving toward the
comprehensive peace settle-
ment that we all desire."

No Swiss Ban on Neo-Nazis
GENEVA (JTA) The Swiss government decided there was
no need to implement a law barring Nazi activity in Switzerland,
because there was no actual threat.
Police Minister Arnol Kholer said after a debate on the subject
that the several neo-Nazi incidents that have occurred in recent
months represent no real danger to democracy.
He said the government would follow these "symptoms"
closely but would take no "exceptional action."

Hebrew Marathon:
A One Day Crash Course
A Hebrew Marathon will be Standing On One Foot."
conducted Sunday, Jan. 8, at
Temple Sinai of Hollywood by
Rabbi Bernhard Presler of the
Sunrise Jewish Center.
The course will begin at 9
a.m. and conclude at 5 p.m.
The marathon is an eight
hour crash course with a basic
vocabulary of 180 of the most
commonly used Hebrew
words. Florence Rosenthal,
adult education chairman of
Temple Sinai said she hopes
the marathon course will spark
additional interest in learning
Hebrew, leading to further
study of the language as well
as increased interest in attend-
ing worship services.
Rabbi Presler was the first
to attempt this program in
South Florida. It is based on
the work of Rabbi Noah Golin-
kin and his book, "While
"Many Jewish adults in the
area have told me that they
would like to learn Hebrew so
that they could follow the ser-
vices in the synagogue on the
Sabbath and on the High Holi-
days but they do not have the
time to take Hebrew lessons,"
Rabbi Presler explains. While
Hebrew is difficult to speak, it
is easy to read once you have
the basis, says Presler. Presler
believes students retain the
most when they are taught in
the crash-course method. The
course is taught with the
assumption that none of the
students have ever seen a
Hebrew letter or word.
Registration for the course
is $18 for Temple Sinai mem-
bers and $25 for non-members.
The fee includes textbooks,
lunch and refreshments. For
information: 920-1577.
