200.000 March In Paris
French Non-Jews Lead
Anti-Semitism Protest
PARIS (JTA) Close to
200,000 people marched
through the center of Paris in
an unprecedented display of
solidarity with French Jews,
following the brutal desecra-
tion of the historic Jewish
cemetery in Carpentras four
days earlier.
President Francois Mitter-
rand was one of the marchers,
the first time since the end of
World War II that a president

But the revulsion apparently
was not universal.
Only hours before the Paris
march, another 32 tombstones
were desecrated in the Jewish
cemetery in Clichy, a northern
quarter of Paris.
Anti-Semitic slogans were
daubed with red paint on the
graves and the cemetery walls.
Six headstones were painted
with Nazi emblems. Police

Haifa Vandalism Suspects Caught
Jewish men have been
detained for the desecration of
two Jewish cemeteries in
Haifa, in which 305 graves
were spray-painted with
rabidly anti-Jewish graffiti.
Police initially arrested a
41-year-old man with a history
of mental aberrations as the
prime suspect in the crime.
The second man, described as
a resident of a Haifa Bay town,
is a friend of the first suspect.
However, the police have not
ruled out an intifada-related
motive for the spray-painting
of violently anti-Jewish slo-
gans on tombstones at the

Vicious desecrations of two
Treasure Coast synagogues
have sickened and outraged
congregants and residents of
two small, otherwise quiet
communities and prompted
calls by the Anti-Defamation
League for stiff penalties
should the violators be caught.
ADL officials believe the
incidents may be a sign of
increasing turf wars between
hate groups competing for
members and trying to prove

Spray-painted swastikas and
slogans such as "Six million
more," "Satan is a kike," and
"Adolph Hitler lives," were
discovered last week on two
St. Lucie County synagogues
located about 10 miles apart.
"Extinction is your evil
reward" was among the say-
ings sprayed on the walls of
Congregation Beth Israel in
Port St. Lucie. Five ugly mes-
sages and swastikas dese-
crated the white stucco walls
of Temple Beth El, in White
City, just outside Fort Pierce.
No other incidents have been
reported in the state, said
Arthur Teitelbaum, southern
regional director of the ADL.
But Teitelbaum called the
incidents "serious," and said
two state laws passed within
this decade will put the perpe-
trators in serious jeopardy.
The ADL has posted a $1,000
reward for information lead-
ing to the arrest and convic-
tion of the vandals.

The House of Worship Pro-
tection Act of 1982 elevated
such crimes from a misde-
meanor to a third-degree
felony. The penalties can be
increased to a second-degree
felony carrying up to 15 years
imprisonment under the 1989
Florida Hate Crimes Act.
"When arrests are made we
intend to press for vigorous
prosecution and deterent sen-
tences. We want the perpe-
trators of these crimes to
spend some time in jail," Tei-
telbaum said.
The ADL has been closely
monitoring a rise in hate group
activity in the Treasure Coast
area for several years, said
Louise Shure, ADL's Palm
Beach County regional direc-
"We suspect they (the dese-
crations) are related because
the messages were very simi-
lar," Shure said.
Although police have not
arrested any suspects, Shure
said the desecrations may have
been the work of the American
Front, which is associated with
the California-based White
Aryan Resistance Movement
of Tom Metzger and the Skin-
head movement.
David Lynch, the 19-year-old
eastern states chairman of the
American Front is based in
Fort Pierce. Lynch reportedly
went to police headquarters
following the recent desecra-
tion to deny his group's
involvement. When he saw the
TV cameras, he reportedly
went home and changed into
his Nazi uniform.
Lynch told reporters he felt
Jews were responsible for the
desecrations and countered
the ADL's $1,000 reward with
a $1,000 offer of his own.

Reunification Of Germany And The Jews Today
sonal assessment on a future
reunification of Germany cer-
tainly corresponds to the view
of many Jews who continue to
live in this part of the world.
During my long involvement
in Jewish community affairs
and political issues connected
to the well-being of the Holo-
caust survivors and their off-
spring among people who once
contributed to our extermina-
tion, I never wanted to belong
to one of those many parties
Jews like to form and adhere
Parties are good for a demo-
cratic Israel, but in the Dias-
pora I believe there should be
only one party: it is the party I
belong to and it is called "Git
far Yidden" (Good for the
Jews). But this often causes
evaluations and assessments
that are shortsighted and not
always good for the world.
Improvement of the world,
however, has always been part
of our mission and heritage as
Borderlines drawn by war-
fare against ethnic and geo-
graphical facts and realities
always caused more wars and
misery. Drawing of borders
after World War I without
logic and with an utter lack of
sensitivity for the history and
developments in Europe since
the fall of the Roman Empire,
bore the seeds of the cata-
strophe that was to follow
after only 20 years.
In 1975, the president of the
Knesset, Israel Yehashyahu, a
wonderful Jew originally from
Yemen, went on an official
visit to the German Federal
Republic and to Berlin. He
brought to Berlin as a gift, a
drawing showing the fall of the
Berlin Wall as exemplified by
the eternal reunification of
Jerusalem. That was the mes-
sage that we brought to our
German friends. And in spite
of all the bitterness, we rejoice
that the Berlin Wall is finally
gone. Even if the Wall were

the symbol of punishment for
the well-being of the world
that depends on peace and
freedom everywhere, it could
not stand there forever.
To my view, the Jews have
nothing to fear from a unified
Germany. Hitler so devastated
the Jewish populations in the
two Germanies, that the Jews
are only a tiny minority. There
are only about 32,700 Jews in
West Germany; 500 in East
Germany and 10,000 in
Austria. Before World War II,
there were 240,000 Jews in
Germany and over 200,000
Jews in Austria.
As far as the Jews in the rest
of Europe are concerned, I can
only say that anti-Semitism
today is for instance, much
stronger in France, even in
Great Britain, not to speak of
the Soviet Union. On trie con-
trary, the now democratic
republic of (East) Germany has
now, after the fall of its pro-
Arab Communist regime that
never wanted to recognize its
responsibility for what hap-
pened to the Jews in Nazi
Germany, a much better atti-
tude not only to the Jewish
State but to the understanding
of the past and accepting Ger-
man guilt towards our people.
The recent act by the new
democratic parliament in East
Germany accepting German
responsibility for the Holo-
caust and seeking forgiveness
from the Jewish people is a
dramatic example of the new
climate in East Germany.
In addition, though I have
always personally opposed
payment of reparations as a
means of "buying out' guilt for
the Germans, Israel needs
funds badly at this time and we
can be sure that no Germany
of any kind in the future is
oing to oppose the Jewish
A strong and united Ger-

Israeli diplomacy to call Ger-

near future, I do not expect at
Fear of a Fourth Reich
seems to me utterly unjusti-
fied. The German myth is
dead. So are the circumstances
that brought it into being and
fomented it. What does a
United Germany mean? Some
60 million West Germans will
absorb 16 million East Ger-
mans and will share with them
their wealth and their eco-
nomic achievements. Germany
is already one of the strongest
countries in the world from an
economic point of view.
To absorb East Germany
will cause some difficulties,
but the unified state will
emerge stronger than ever.
The new united Germany will
create some fears on the part
of Japan, the United States
and the rest of Europe because
nobody can tell now where
Europe is going and if a Euro-
pean Community is going to
emerge after all, and what
shape it will have.
But the Jews do not have tu
fear a united Germany. The
pogrom they started in towns
on the Rhine during the First
Crusade ended in 1945 after
the annihilation of nearly all of
the Jews of Central Europe,
the heart and core of our peo-
ple. Nothing is left, and history

Increased lobbying in Washington by
pro-Palestinian church groups is not a
direct result of the occupation of a building
in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem by
150 observant Jews.
Yet there is little doubt that the move by
the settlers just before Easter fueled the
attention given to the 125 individuals try-
ing to stop or reduce American aid to
The very effectiveness of AIPAC, the
primary pro-Israel lobbying organization,
has made it a target of anti-Israel forces.
Members of Congress thus far have
resisted, but not ignored, the more vocal
pro-Palestinian voices.
It is incumbent on members of our
community to reassert to our own delega-
tion in the House and Senate that Jews are
united in their support of assistance to
Israel, in maintaining Jerusalem as the
undivided capital of the Jewish State and in
encouraging the free emigration of Jews
from the Soviet Union to Israel.
These common interests and goals far
surpass the differences which exist among
Israelis and among American Jews. Let no
one confuse dialogue with disaffection.

They were trying to describe
the experience of April 26,
when some 20,000 traditional
Jews assembled reverently in

group came together to cele-
brate the completion of the

Talmud, the Daf Yomi Siyum
Habima Slated

BONN (JTA) The national
Israeli theater, Habima, is to
perform in East Berlin next
month, becoming the first
Israeli group to stage a play in
East Germany.
The play scheduled to be
preformed in East Berlin,
"Else," has been written by
the Israeli author Motti Ler-
ner. It is based on the biogra-
phy of Else Lasker-Schuler, a
Jewish writer who was born in
Wuppertal in 1869 and later
moved to Berlin.

From the 16th century until
World War II, Eastern Euro-

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "A good way off shall they pitch round about the tent of
(Num. 2.2).
BAMIDBAR "And the Lord spoke unto Moses in the
wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the
second month, in the second year after they were come out of the
land of Egypt, saying: 'Take ye the sum of all the congregation of
the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers houses,
according to the number of names, every male, by their polls;
from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to
war in Israel: ye shall number them by their hosts, even thou and
Aaron' (Numbers 1.1-3). Exclusive of the Levites, who were not
numbered, the total sum of men of military age was 603,555.
There follows a description of the Israelites' encampments during
their journeys through the desert: there were four major camps,
each of three tribes; one under the flag of Judah, one under the
flag of Reuben, one under the flag of Ephraim, and one under the
flag of Dan. The Levites camped separately near the sanctuary;
among the Levites, each clan had a particular service to render in
regard to the sanctuary.

Betar Clash
With Nazis
PARIS (JTA) Riot police
intervened to break up a street
brawl between young neo-
Nazis and a group identified as
members of Betar, the revi-
sionist Zionist youth move-
ment linked to the Herut wing
of Likud.
The neo-Nazi youth, mem-
bers of French royalist and
Catholic fundamentalist
organizations, attempted to
demonstrate in a religious
parade around a young girl
attired as Joan of Arc, but
were restrained by police.
Other youngsters waving an
Israeli flag hurled a crowbar
through the window of a
nearby bookshop that special-

According to witnesses, the

attackers, who were by then

you did not include the admin-

Hamilton. "But it would be a

A Palestinian student
sparked an angry protest at
San Francisco State Univer-
sity last week when he
arranged for the student gov-
ernment swearing-in to start
with a song equating fascism
with Zionism.
Six students, four of them
Jews, angrily walked out of
the annual event at SFSU's
Student Union minutes after
the anti-Zionist song began.
The performance by the
singing trio Al-Awda (Arabic
for "The Return") had been
arranged by Hatem Bazian,
the newly elected president of
the student government.
The group sang the lines
"Israel has blood on its hands"
and "Fascists and Zionists
sure act the same," with the
refrain "free Palestine now."
Marchers included concen-
tration camp survivors wear-
ing their striped prison uni-
forms, some with Stars of
David pinned to their chests.
There were many schoolchil-
dren, many non-Jews and a
sprinkling of North Africans
and blacks who joined the
demonstration, which became
a denunciation of racism in all
its forms.

West Bankers
Act On Intifada
Bank (JTA) The residents of
this all-Jewish township of
13,500 are angry, frustrated
and all too ready to take the
law into their own hands.
They are sick of the Palestin-
ian uprising in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, which marked
the end of its 29th month.
The problem is that intifada
not only shows no signs of
ending, it is getting worse.
According to police statis-
tics, at least 161 vehicles
owned by Ma'aleh Adumim
residents were stoned last
month. That was up from 100
vehicles in March.
The people of this township,
located due east of Jerusalem,
blame the Israeli security
forces for inadequate protec-
"The army and the police
failed to restore order, so we
did," said Amos Tertman, the
mayor here.
