Campaign Lift-Off'86
Throughout the ages, Jewish, survival has always depended on Jews taking care of Jews. The theme of our
campaign captures the connection between Jews of different generations and disparate origins:
Local Jewish community
organizations emerged
before the Civil War. In the
early years of this century,
mass immigration brought
forth new institutions for
immigrant aid. A large
population infused
American Jewish com-
munities with vitality and
encouraged development of
numerous educational,
health and social services.
Gradually, American Jewry
became prosperous and self-
confident enough to reach
out to help Jews abroad.
The condition of Jews in
devastated Europe after the
First World War, and later
European refugees fleeing
Nazi persecution, inspired
enormous effort from
American Jewry, largely
through the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
In 1939, the JDC and the
United Palestine Appeal
joined to create the United
Jewish Appeal which con-
solidated fundraising for all
overseas needs.
The rise of Israel created
a new kind of challenge.
Upon achieving in-
dependence, Israel welcom-
ed hundreds of thousands of
refugees from Europe and
the Arab lands. Israel
automatically became the
focus of the institutional aid
set aside for refugee needs,
but on a much vaster scale,
and in greater concentra-
tion than anything attemp-
ted before. Helping the
refugees in Israel, which the
United States Jewish Ap-
peal does through the
United Israel Appeal/Jewish
Agency for Israel, became
an opportunity to par-
ticipate in the rebirth ol the
Jewish homeland. The ef-
fort caught the imagination
of Jewish people
Our present system is the
product of a gradual evolu-
tion, with the needs of
American Jews and Jews in
Israel constantly readjusted
and balanced for the
ultimate good of all.
The campaign is more
than a drive to collect
money, central though that
is. A campaign educates the
community about its own
needs and involves people
who might otherwise not be
aware of those needs. It
calls forth leadership and
starts people thinking and
planning for the future. It
builds up the community
and creates links with other
communities. It strengthens
our conviction that we are
one people, with one
destiny, and gives us the
means to act on that belief.

They commandeered a car after

from Vienna.

Israeli Ambassadors, attended the
funeral of 11-year-old Natasha

A personal representative of the
Pope attended a Roman Catholic

U.S. May Require Further Cooperation
As the Pollard Spy Case Unfolds
Washington has left open the
possibility that further coopera-
tion from Israel may be necessary
as the legal process in the
Jonathan Pollard spy case unfolds
in the U.S. This is the interpreta-
tion by observers here of the
statement released by the State
Department following the return
to Washington of the team of U.S.
investigators sent to Israel last
month to question persons who
allegedly had contacts with
The case therefore was not clos-
ed by the American statement. Its
wording, implying that the U.S.
expects ongoing cooperation from
Israel, was insisted on by State
Department legal advisor
Abraham Sofaer, who headed the
American team.
It is awkward for Israel,
observers say, because while
Jerusalem was indeed anxious to
return to the U.S. sensitive
documents it obtained by
unauthorized means, it is not will-
ing to contribute directly to the
conviction of Pollard in an
American court.
According to these observers,
Israel and the U.S. Justice
Department as well would prefer
that the 31-year-old Navy
counterintelligence analyst plead
guilty to lesser charges than es-
pionage. Such a plea would relieve
Israel of any further role in the
legal process and would avoid a
long, unpreposessing trial with in-
tense media coverage focussed on
Israeli authorities, meanwhile,
have dismantled the Liaison
Bureau for Scientific Affairs, the
obscure unit of the Defense
Ministry that apparently was in
the intelligence-gathering
business and allegedly used
Pollard. Raphael Eitan, the
former chief of Mossad who had
served the last three Prime
Ministers of Israel, was removed
as head of the disbanded unit. He
has not, however, been dismissed
from government employ.
Eitan allegedly recruited
Pollard and was his "handler"
during the 18 months in which the
civilian employee of the navy, who
is Jewish, supplied Israel with
secret information for pay. Eitan
was one of the persons questioned

There is no information here on
the reasons for a last minute hitch

Moshe Shahal for its demise and

pany, said in a statement that it
was impossible to run a govern-
ment company without the sup-
port of the responsible Minister.
The canal, which was to utilize
the water power generated by the
more than 1,000-foot drop from
sea level of the Dead Sea to pro-
duce cheap energy, was launched
when the Likud government was
in office and Yitzhak Modai, now

Klaus Barbie Trial Postponed
PARIS (JTA) The Supreme
Court has postponed the trial of
Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie
which had been scheduled to open
February 3. France's highest
court recently announced the
postponement of the trial after it
overturned a lower court decision
and after it ruled that the 73-year-
old former Gestapo officer could
be charged with crimes against
French resistance fighters as well
as crimes against Jewish civilians
who he ordered deported to death
Legal experts said the trial
could begin next March or April,
at the earliest, after the upcoming
legislative elections.
Although the postponement is
not linked to the elections, many
believe that the government
wanted to avoid a possible
political scandal during the pre-
election period. Barbie's lawyer,
Jacques Verges, has said that he
intends to shed light on the
betrayal of France's wartime
resistance leader, Jean Moulin, to
the Nazis. Verges has implied that
other resistance leaders informed
the gestapo of Moulin's
whereabouts for political reasons.
Some French newspapers
predicted that Barbie will never
be put on trial because of his poor
health. The Nazi war criminal is
under treatment for a variety of il-
lnesses at the Montluc Prison in
Lyon where he has been detained
since his expulsion from Bolivia in
February, 1983.
The Supreme Court recon-
sidered Barbie's case at the re-
quest of a number of surviving
resistance fighters. Barbie was
formally charged by investigating
Magistrate Christian Riss with
crimes against humanity.
A Lyon court confirmed his in-
dictment, ruling that the arrest,
deportation and repression of the
resistance fell under the definition
of war crimes, which are covered
in France by a statute of limita-
tions. Under French law, Barbie
could not be tried for such crimes
more than 40 years after he com-
mitted them, the Lyon court
Now that the Supreme Court
has reversed the lower court, the
file will go back to the Public Pro-
secutor's Office in Paris which will
interrogate Barbie once again and
prepare a new indictment. In view
of the hundreds of thousands of
documents which must be examin-
ed and the intricate legal pro-
cedure this could take months.
Barbie, known as "the butcher
of Lyon," was sentenced to death
in absentia in 1952 and again in
1954 by French military courts in
Lyon for crimes against
resistance fighters. The death
sentence expired with the statute
of limitations.
The Supreme Court ruling was
based on its findings that the
lower court had no jurisdiction to
distinguish between crimes
against humanity and war crimes.
The prosecution, which generally
expresses the government's
views, had asked the court to
overrule the lower tribunal.

Shahal said that given the
economic situation, the canal was
doomed, though he would propose
that the government freeze the
project so that it might be resum-
ed when the economy improves.
Shahal also insisted that it is time
to explain to world Jewry the
reasons for the failure.
He suggested that the canal
company write personal letters to
each of the contributors who pur-
chased $100,000 worth of Israel
Bonds to launch the project. Ac-
cording to Shahal, most of them
would understand the economic
realities and would not insist on
the immediate refunding of their
loan. Those who want repayment
should receive it because the
honor of the government is at
stake, Shahal said.
The management of the Israel
Bond Organization said it was
unlikely that the loans will be
repaid earlier than the original
timetable. If the project is ever
revived, the contributors would
still deserve the right to be
honored as the founding fathers of
the canal, the Israel Bond
Organization management said.

Why We Mtut Help
We undertake this commitment
because it is our way of par-
ticipating in the rebirth of the
Jewish homeland. Our role is to
provide for the absorption of im-
migrants, to help fund new com-
munities, neighborhood rehabilita-
tion, youth, vocational and
humanitarian programs. The peo-
ple of Israel are counting on us to
fulfill our responsibility to join
them, as one people, in shaping
the Jewish destiny. They are
already doing their share.
Israel's current position has
been achieved at enormous cost in
lives and resources. Peace with
Egypt the giving up of the Sinai
cost $17 bllion; maintaining an
effective defensive capability
costs many billions each year. To
simultaneously sustain its na-
tional life and assure its very sur-
vival, Israel has had to borrow at
high rates of interest. In an an-
nual national budget of $22 billion.
approximately one-third is spent
for defense and one-third for debt
service the highest per capita
debt burden in the world. The re-
maining third is what the country
lives on health, education,
welfare and municipal services for
4.1 million people.
Last year, the government had
to slash its budget for social ser-
vices, reducing the very programs
that could have helped the people
suffering most from economic
pressures. Unemployment has hit
development towns, especially in
Project Renewal neighborhoods.
Dozens of established rural set-
tlements face bankruptcy because
of a changing agricultural
economy. There is increased
pressure from disadvantaged
families to enroll their chilrden in
Youth Aliyah schools. New im-
migrants, including recently ar-
rived Ethiopian Jews, will find it
difficult to find sufficient
1984-1985 CAMPAIGN
How Our Money Is Raised...
Where Our Allocations Go,
Homecoming and Home Making
During our 1986 Campaign,
Israel will enter the second phase
of helping recently arrived Ethio-
pian Jews become part of Israeli
society. They will be moving from
the shelter of absorption centers
to furnished apartments and mak-
ing the transition from initial ad-
justment to the more difficult pro-
cess of acculturation job re-
training and individual placement.
The process will take about 18
months, almost a year longer than
the absorption of immigrants
from other countries.
At present, absorption centers
are full. Hotels, hostels and con-
valescent homes have been press-
ed into service, with rents far
higher than costs at Jewish
Agency-owned centers. Perma-
nent housing is another problem.
Because Ethiopian Jews need jobs
and supportive services, they
must live near established centers
of population, precisely the areas
where housing is in short supply.
Ethiopian families are smaller
than the Agency had expected,
and more individual apartments
must be found.
In addition, many more Ethio-
pian children than anticipated
have reached Israel without their
parents. As it did for the children
of the Holocaust and young
refugees from Moslem lands,
Youth Aliyah will serve as the
first home in Israel for these
young Ethiopian Jews
The task of absorbing Ethiopian
Jewry got a brilliant initial start
with the generous support of
American Jews, who contributed
to the UJA more than $60 million
for that purpose. Now we have to
finish the job through our regular
The 1985/86 Jewish Agency
budget calls for an extra $45
million to be spent on the absorp-
tion of Ethiopian Jews, another
$15 million for their vocational
training and $9 million more for
the accommodation and education
in Youth Aliyah villages.
This huge expenditure must be
financed through increased in-
come derived from fund raising
and cash collection in Jewish com-
munities abroad and through a
painful $8-million cut in other
Jewish Agency programs.
The budget of the Immigrant
and Absorption Department ex-
cluding resources allocated for
Ethiopians dropped from $53
million to $50 million this year. All
programs have been trimmed by
10 to 20 percent, with social ser-
vices and counseling being reduc-
ed at a time when new immigrants
need more advice than ever on
coping with Israel's economy.
An additional $10 million
could increase services for olim
and ensure proper workers and
employment officers could be
hired. Rent/subsidies could be
increased to help new im-
migrants leave absorption
centers for permanent

Campaign Message
By Dr. Saul Singer
Federation President
Dr. Howard Barron
Campaign Chairman
The campaign theme
One People, One Destiny
expresses the essential unity
of the Jewish People, the
shared commitment of the
American-Jewish community
and our brethren throughout
the world.
The annual campaign is the
primary vehicle for support of
an international system of
organizations and institu-
tions. It contributes to the
maintenance and creation of
vital programs and services
for Jews everywhere.
Reflecting time-honored
Jewish traditions of Tzedakah
and community life, the pur-
pose of the campaign is not to
provide funds for support of
Jewish communal and social
institutions, but to provide an
organzational framework
within which members of the
Jewish community can con-
tribute their time, energy,
knowledge, and money for
the common good. It is a
medium for recruitment and
training of Jewish communal
leadership, a focus for
educating a generation in
Jewish tradition and respon-
sibility, and a testing ground
for new ideas and methods
for inspiring a dynamic and
fulfilling Jewish way of life.
A successful campaign is
more than the achievement of
a specified dollar amount. It
is the steady and gradual
building of community
understanding of need and
purpose. It spurs the signifi-
cant involvement of people
and facilitates maximum giv-
ing in relation to the
resources available in the
community. It is a vehicle for
the community to develop
pride, indentify and attend to
its needs, provide for its
future and forge a significant
relationship with other
American Jews, the com-
munities both self-
sufficient and distressed
abroad and the Jews of Isarel.
It is the finest expression of
Jewish Identity and solidari-

An additional $3.75 million
would enable Youth Aliyah to

could give Youth Aliyah

Settling the Land
The budget of the Rural Settle-
ment Department fell to $67
million from $70 million in 1985
and $73 million%he two previous
years. Development plans had
called for establishing seven
rurual communities in 1985/86.
Settlements were planned for the
Galilee to strengthen a regional
network of small communities
projected as the hub of Israeli
high-tech production. And farm-
ing villages were mapped out in
the Negev and Arava to continue
the redemption of arid soil
through agro-technology and drip
Now, only four settlements can
be started: two in the Galilee and
two in the Arava, at a cost of $3
million. Other priorities include
working with 12 of the 50
economically distressed moshavim
closest to bankruptcy and bring-
ing another 14 settlements to the
point where they will need no fur-
ther help from the Jewish Agency.
Attention must also be given to
long-range planning for set-
tlements where agriculture has.
reached its peak and where em-
phasis may be placed on regional
industry or on tourism.
An extra $10 million could
help a further dozen establish-
ed communities avoid
bankruptcy, or break ground
for 14 vitally needed new set-
tlements in the Negev and
Galilee. Israel's future vitality
depends on shifting population
growth from the crowded
center to the north and the
Hope Through Neighborhood
The fact that Project Renewal's
budget remains at $48 million
while other departments have suf-
fered cutbacks, testifies to the
high priority Israel gives this part-
nership program to close its social
gap. Each neighborhood has dif-
ferent needs for which its twinned
community abroad is responsible.
While most of the twinning rela-
tionships are active and on-
schedule in their fund raising, in a
few others there is a shortage of
cash. Some neighborhoods are ap-
proaching the fourth or fifth year
of their involvement in Project
Reenwal, yet still lack basic
physical facilities to implement
already planned social programs.

Tax Commandos
Attack Tax Evaders
Several years ago, as inflation bloomed in Israel and an increas-
ing number of people sought to evade the growing burden of in-
come tax and other levies, a special unit called "tax commando"
was established in Israel's internal revenue service.
In recent months the Tax Commando finally came into its own,
as the fighting arm of Israel's treasury department, which decid-
ed to tackle various sectors of the tax-paying population
suspected of not really being tax-paying.
Among the first to be tackled were the owners of the popular
falafel kiosks and stands, who in many cases proved to have failed
to report millions of shekels in revenue. Next came caterers who
provided lavish affairs for weddings and bar-mitzvah celebra-
tions, which every Israeli wondered how so many of them could
afford given the country's dire economic straits. More recently,
the operations were directed against entertainers singers,
musicians, comedians and so on.
Finally, now veterans of tax warfare, the tax commando has
been directed against tougher targets. First in Jerusalem's ultra-
Orthodox quarter, after inspectors for the Value Added Tax were
attacked by resentful merchants, and most recently in B'nai
Brak, which in the past came to be called "The Vatican" among
the income tax officials (meaning it is "holy," not to be tampered
with ...)
The operation in B'nai Brak uncovered evasions of taxes to the
tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, in addition to dozens of
stores and businesses which were not even on record as doing
business. Needless to say, these operations were conducted with
suitable police protection.
One interesting aspect of the B'nai Brak operation was in the
marketplace of a section called Pardes Katz, where the
shopkeepers and stand owners were not surprised: they knew of
the inspectors' arrival beforehand. Said one of the policemen
backing up the operation, "they have an excellent intelligence
system here..."
One of the methods used by the tax commando throughout the
country in recent months has been to set up roadblocks at major
intersections, equipped with a computer terminal linked to the tax
office's mainframe. Drivers are stopped and checked against the
data in the computer, and if found to owe unpaid taxes their
vehicles are impounded (under the appropriate court paperwork)
on the spot, unless they come up with the money owed.
This system has proved quite effective in tax collection, but has
also claimed a number of victims who had paid their taxes but had
not yet had the information fed into the computers ... It turns
out that because of the heavy workload, the clerks charged with
updating the computer data often fall behind sometimes by
several weeks.
The Jerusalem Post carried an item written especially by Jon
Kimche of London, describing documents and maps found in the
British Ministry of Defense which show that a map drawn up in
1915 on which the Egyptians currently base their claim to Taba
had been purposely falsified to alter the Palestine-Egyptian
border at the time. The map had been drawn by the famous
Arabist T.E. Lawrence, placing the border where the British
wanted it.
Egypt has been using the dispute over Taba, a small strip of
beach south of Eilat, as an excuse for cooling off relations with
Israel over the past two years, and for "freezing" up the process
of applying the Camp David peace agreement.
Recently, a thaw in relations (which came to be known as the
Cold Peace) seemed to be in the offing as the Egyptians invited a
delegation of Israeli directors-general (of Cabinet departments) to
visit Cairo, in order to discuss the full range of Israel-Egypt rela-
tions. However, when the delegation got there it became evident
that the Egyptians preferred to stick only to the Taba issue.
The Egyptians have been insisting on establishing an arbitra-
tion body, which will act like a court in the dispute, so that no real
negotiation or compromise would be possible. Israel, on the other
hand, wants the issue negotiated first, with arbitration (mutually
agreed on) to come only as a final resort.

moved several SAM-2, SAM-6,
and SAM-8 surface-to-air missiles
close to the Syrian-Lebanese
border. The new anti-aircraft
emplacements will make it much
more difficult for Israel to con-
tinue its surveillance flights over
Lebanon flights necessary to
monitor PLO and Shi'ite terrorist
infiltration in that country.
Initially, Israeli reaction to the
Syrian move was vehement. Army
chief-of-staff Moshe Levy noted
that shortly before the 1982
Israeli invasion of Lebanon a
similar Syrian missile deployment
had resulted in Israeli airstrikes
against the SAMs.
Speaking on television, Levy
said that Israel "requires freedom
of flight over Lebanon because
there is no government there that
is capable of ensuring what every
sovereign state must assure in its
territory. And if there are ter-
rorists there, we must maintain
the capacity to attack them and
know where they are."
Privately, many Israelis conced-
ed that Syria's decision to move
the missile batteries to the border
came after the Israeli fighter
pilots downed two Syrian MIGs in
Syrian airspace on Nov. 19. At
that time, Israeli officials stated
that the Syrian planes had behav-
ed in a threatening manner. But
Member of Knesset Abba Eban,
chairman of the Knesset's
Defense and Foreign Affairs
Committee, now says that Israeli
pilots made a mistake in shooting
down the Syrian planes. Accor-
ding to the New York Times (Dec.
17), he believes that the Syrian
missile deployment "apparently is
a reaction to an erroneous act on
our part." He says that there is lit-
tle Israel can do about the
Israel could, however, attack
the emplacements a course
which may become necessary if
Syria shoots down an Israeli
reconnaissance plane. Never-
theless, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin says that he does not expect
a war. "In today's reality, given
the existing lines between Israel
and the confrontation states, I can
see no political reason that would
justify Israel's initiating a war,"
he said.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister
Shimon Peres said in Lod that he
attributed Syria's military moves
to Hafez Assad's "striving to at-
tain leadership in the Arab world
and to realize the age-old Syrian
dream of 'Greater Syria.' He
said that Assad will seek
"strategic balance" with Israel
until he believes that strategic
superiority is within reach. At
that point, the fragile calm that
exists between Israel and Syria
could evaporate.
Not every Israeli shares the
view that Syria's movement of the
SAMs was provoked by the
dogfight on Nov. 19. Military com-
mentator Ron Ben-Ishai, writing
in the Dec. 16 Yediot Achronot,
said that "one can argue about
whether the decision to shoot
down the two Syrian MIG-23's ...
was correct" but it would be a
"mistake to believe that this was
the only reason the Syrians
deployed the missiles" on the
Lebanon border.
He pointed out that the anti-
aircraft missiles require sites
which are dug out in advance.
Syrian preparations for the
deployment "began far prior to
the recent dogfight." He said that
Syria's objective is not retaliation
for a single incident but "to limit
Israel's freedom to fly over most
of Lebanon. The dogfight was on-
ly an excuse ...
"The main motive behind
Syria's move is political. The
Syrians consider Lebanon their
exclusive zone of influence, and as
long as Israeli planes fly over
Lebanon without interference,
their control there is not total."
He noted that there is also the
"military motive preventing
Israel from obtaining essential in-
formation on the movement of
terrorists and the Syrian
Ben-Ishai added that Israel has
to view the Syrian move as
serious. Jerusalem cannot forgo
the information it obtains from its
reconnaissance flights over
Lebanon. On the other hand, it
understands that taking out the
missile batteries would entail
serious dangers for Israel in-
cluding, perhaps, Soviet military
involvement or a Soviet-backed
Syrian attempt to use SAM-5's to
threaten Israeli planes flying over
That explains why Israel now
seems to be downplaying the
signifance of the "missile crisis."
Neither Israel nor Syria wants
war. Rabin spoke for the Israeli
leadership when he said that there
"is no reason to panic." Israel will
do everything it can v probably
with the help of the United States
to help Syria climb down from
the brink.

Indicting the PLO
Editor, Near East Report
On March 1,1973, eight "Black
September" PLO terrorists seized
hostages at a reception at the
Saudi embassy in Khartoum, the
capital of Sudan. The terrorists
immediately issued a set of
demands which included the
release from San Quentin prison
of Sen. Robert Kennedy's killer,
Sirhan Sirhan. They also demand-
ed freedom for imprisoned
members of the German Baader-
Meinhof gang and for a group of
Al Fatah terrorists being held in
Twenty-four hours later their
demands unmet the terrorists
selected three of their Western
hostages for special treatment.
They were U.S. Ambassador Cleo
Noel, U.S. Charge d'Affaires
George C. Moore and Belgian
diplomat Guy Eid. The three were
ordered to write farewell letters
to their families, beaten beyond
recognition, and then methodical-
ly murdered.
The terrorists then surrendered
to Sudanese authorities who
released two of them for lack of
evidence. The other six were
sentenced to life imprisonment
but their sentences were quickly
commuted. By November, 1974,
they were back with their PLO
That might have been the end of
the story. But it wasn't. It quickly
turned out that the murders of
Khartoum were not the random
acts of Black September but were
acts of premeditated murder
which may have been ordered by
none other than Yasir Arafat.
Four weeks after the murders, the
Washington Post (April 5, 1973)
was the first to report that Arafat
was in Black September's com-
mand headquarters in Beirut
when the order to kill the three
diplomats was issued. The Post's
David Ottaway wrote that "it was
not clear whether Arafat per-
sonally .. gave the order to
carry out the executions using the
code word 'Cold River." But there
are reports that Arafat was pre-
sent .. when the message was
sent and that he personally con-
gratulated the guerrillas after the
Today, almost 13 years later,
declassified communiques releas-
ed under the Freedom of Informa-
tion Act point to Arafat's direct
involvement in the murders. Ac-
cording to Neil C. Livingstone, co-
author of the just-published
ttghttng Back: Winning the War
Against Terrorism, a confidential
State Department cable sent to
Washington from the U.S. Em-
bassy in Khartoum on March 7,
1973 stated that the terrorists
"did not murder Ambassador
Noel and Moore ... until receiv-
ing specific code word instruc-
tions" from the PLO's Beirut
headquarters. Even more damn-
ing is the alleged existence of a
tape recording on which Arafat is
heard issuing the order to kill the
diplomats. The former director of
the Central Intelligence Agency
(and current United Nations Am-
bassador) Vernon Walters said
recently that it was "common
knowledge at the time ... that a
tape existed."
Based on this evidence new
and old serveral influential
Washington organizations are
seeking to indict Arafat for the
murders of the two American
diplomats. According to the Los
Angeles Times, Attorney-General
Edwin Meese has received the
"new allegations" about Arafat's
role in the killings. His indictment
is, again according to a Times arti-
cle, "under active consideration."
In practical terms, an indict-
ment of Arafat by the United
States would seriously cramp the
PLO leaders' style. It would make
it impossible for him to visit the
United Nations an New York
without fear of arrest. An
outstanding arrest warrant by
Washington might also make it
difficult for him to travel in
Western Europe without risk of
extradition to the United States.
International airports would also
be off-limits to him.
But, even more significant,
would be an indictment's symbolic
value. Author Livingstone writes
that an Arafat indictment would
be "an affirmation to the world
that the United States does not
take lightly the murder of its
public servants and citizens" and
that "terrorists do not go un-
punished ..." He says that it
would also "strip away (the
PLO's) carefully cultivated face of
respectability" and expose it and
its terrorist allies as "ti/ie criminal
gangs they really are." He points
out that "an indictment of Arafat
would not represent an indict-
ment of the Palestinian people."
Rather, it would remind the
world, including the Arabs, "that
law must prevail over violence ..
and that Palestinian interests are
best served by people who unders-
tand this."

Classic Holocaust

The Destruction of the Jewa. By Raul Hilberg. Holmes and

Reviewed by Monty Noam Penkower
Rare are the works which dominate an area of scholarship like
Raul Hilberg's The Destruction of the European Jews. Ever since
that volume's appearance in 1961, specialists in Holocaust studies
have come to rely on its exhaustive research and methodical
analysis of the German bureaucratic process which ultimately
achieved the murder of European Jewry during World War II.
Publication now of a revised and definitive edition, in three hand-
some volumes, bears testimony to one man's singular
Step by step, Hilberg unfolds the manner in which four Nazi
hierarchies civil service, military, business, and party fused in-
to "a machinery of destruction." Relentlessly, administrative
gears separated Jews from the rest of society through legal
definition, expropriation, and concentration, pursuing all the
while an emigration policy to make the Third Reich Judenrein. Ir-
revocable annihilation commenced in mid-1941 with mobile killing
operations in occupied Soviet Russia, proceeded to deportations
across Nazi-held Europe, and reached its climax in the un-
precedented establishment of six death centers in Poland.
These sober volumes indict an entire nation, which overcame
any considerations of morality or cost to the war effort. Expul-
sion and exclusion, regularly practiced heretofore against Jews
by Christian and secular rulers, gave way to murder for the one
people guilty in German ideology of birth itself. This momentous
shift in history, Hilberg reveals, perforce drew upon every sector
of German life; fresh documentation here on railroad transport
buttresses his earlier conclusion. Collaborators played their part
Rumania's government excelling on occasion but efficient,
even zealous, Nazi bureaucrats proved most instrumental in im-
plementing their Fuehrer's demonic obsession.
More could be said about opportunistic administrators eager for
power, as in the Foreign Office's Abteilung Deutschland. Readers
will have to look elsewhere for information on, among other
things, Nazi educational propaganda, the post-January 1945
death marches to the German interior, and the reasons why Him-
mler halted the gassing apparatus at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Hilberg's low estimate of 5.1 million Holocaust victims is open to
debate, as well.
Those who stood by without intervening are discussed in the
chapter on rescue, an expanded account enhanced by new ar-
chival material about U.S. wartime intelligence and the possibility
of bombing Auschwitz. Important outside forces like the Interna-
tional Red Cross, the Vatican, and the neutral states are given
scant attention, but the focus on Washington and London
demonstrates their complicity in Jewry's destruction. Indeed, a
discussion of heroic activities by Raoul Wallenberg and Charles
Lutz in Hungary, by young Jewish Palestinians operating out of
Turkey, or by Jewish individuals in Switzerland and Sweden, for
example, would have highlighted the fact that definite
possibilities for checking the tempo of slaughter did exist. Absent
was an Allied will to save. Confronted by indifference and
political expediency in the Western councils of war, Jewish free
world organizations (the criticism of them levelled here not-
withstanding) remainded fundamentally powerless.
Most problematical is Hilberg's conclusion that "the Jewish vic-
tims caught in the strait jacket of their history plunged
themselves physically and psychologically into catastrophe."
Reliance on German sources and limited attention to Jewish
history lead to the charge that European Jewry, which had
"unlearned the art of revolt" while in the Diaspora, complied to
the end with Nazi directives.
Aside from a human tendency to deny imminent danger and to
remain passive when devoid of hope witness the quiescent
behavior by Polish and Russian prisoners-of-war or by millions of
foreign laborers on German soil, Jews faced a hostile environment
in and outside Axis-held Europe. German deception, unavailable
havens, the real threat of collective responsibility, and a natural
inability to comprehend the irrationality of the hitherto in-
conceivable all compouded the Jewish tragedy. Remarkably (a
few instances receive mention here), people hid and sought
escape, various Jewish Councils and youth movements defied the
"Final Solution," and uprisings took place in ghettos and three
killing centers. And in several ways other than armed revolt,
many Jews resisted the Nazi attempt at dehumanization and
adhered to their basic values de profundis.
It is the domain of the perpetrators which this classic brilliantly
illuminates. The fruits of a scholar's dedicated commitment force
a deeper appreciation of Justice Robert Jackson's opening theme
at the postwar Nuremberg trials: "The wrongs which we seek to
condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant and so
devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored
because it cannot survive their being repeated." A world witness
since then to genocides and nuclear threat, as well as sensational
treatment, and even denial, of the Holocaust, ignores this wisdom
at gravest peril. For Raul Hilberg's seminal contribution, all
pledged to tie standard of human decency will be forever in his

Transformation: What's
Happened to Jesse Helms?
By David Friedman
of the most interesting
developments this past year in
Washington was the transforma-
tion of Sen. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.)
from someone considered un-
friendly to Israel to a strong sup-
porter of the Jewish State. In fact,
Helms, like several other conser-
vative Senators and many in the
Christian Right, believes Israel
should maintain control of the
West Bank.
Helms explains his new position
in an article in the upcoming
winter issue of "Policy Review,"
the quarterly published by the
Heritage Foundation, the
Washington-based conservative
think tank. Entitled "A Baptist
Deacon Reflects on American
Policy Toward Israel," Helms
notes that when his wife, Dorothy,
visited Israel in 1972, at the time
he was first running for the
Senate, she slipped a prayer on a
piece of paper into the Western
Wall that he should win. He won
the election and the next two.
But more to the point, the
Helms article describes his first
visit to Israel last spring at the in-
vitation of Sen. Chic Hecht (R.,
Nev.) to join Hecht and his
brother, Marty, in the dedication
of a new synagogue at the Hebrew
University campus on Mount
Scopus in honor of Hecht's
96-year-old father.
"We decided to follow in the
footsteps of the patriarchs," star-
ting in Hebron and visiting Judaea
and Samaria, Helms recalls. "This
area called the West Bank is the
heart of ancient Israel, the very
land that the Bible is all about."
Helms goes on to note: "It is
ironic that modern Israel is cram-
med along the seashore, where in
biblical times, the Philistines and
Canaanites lived; while biblical
Israel, the homeland of the Jews,
is the very territory which the
U.Sl State Department wants the
Jews to leave."
But Helms also argues that
Israel needs the territories for
security. He criticizes the U.S.
position of returning territory for
peace and leaving the West Bank
under Palestinian authority in
association with Jordan.
"There is no piece of paper suf-
ficiently strong to uphold regional
arrangements that do not meet
the dictates of common sense," he
wrote. "The animosity of the
neighboring Arab countries does
not spring from concern over the
present inhabitants of the so-
called West Bank, or the fact that
Israel exercises administrative
and military control over that ter-
ritory. The animosity springs
from the fact that Israel proper
exists. Concessions on the West
Bank territory would only whet
the appetite of animosity, not ap-
pease it."
Helms sees the strategy of King
Hussein of Jordan in the current
peace process as aimed at "impos-
ing indefensible boundaries on
Thus, Helms neither supports
the Administration's peace pro-
cess nor does he think its efforts
to bring* about negotiations is
desirable. "It is not enough to say
that Israel would never agree will-
ingly to conditions that would
result in its annihilation," he
stresses. "The United States
might pressure Israel into
agreements that otherwise would
not have been accepted."
Helms takes his argument fur-
ther and notes that as a result of
the Egyptian-Israel peace treaty,
the U.S. has doubled its aid to
Israel and tripled aid to Egypt.
"The contributions to these two
countries are a barely disguised
attempt to buy peace to repay
Israel for the massive costs of
meeting the Camp David agree-
ment, and to give Egypt a basis
for standing up to the rest of the
Arab world," he argues.
Helms, who has continually op-
posed all foreign aid, adds that
this high level of support to Israel
results in compromising "the reci-
pient's freedom of action." He
charges that this "is just the way
that the State Department wants
it. They seem to want servile allies
eating out of our hand, rather
than allies that make a positive
contribution to cooperation on
major policies."
The U.S. must not set precondi-
tions that would make Israel's
security dependent on Arab good-
will nor provide U.S. funds to
Arabs to ensure that goodwill,
Helms stresses.
"Certainly, the just rights of the
Arab inhabitants to their homes,
their properties, their culture and
their religion must be upheld," he
"No one can imagine that the
Arab Palestinians would meet the
fate that Jews met in Syria, Jor-
dan, Iraq, Egypt or Morocco. It
would not be difficult to design a
just settlement that does not in-
clude sovereignty or 'association
with Jordan.' And if mere justice
is not enough for some disaffected
individuals, political rights can
easily be exercised to a fuller
degree in East Palestine, i.e.
Supreme Court Refuses
To Hear Nazi's Appeal
Supreme Court recently refused
to hear an appeal of a deportation
order from John Demjanjuk, a
Ukrainian-born war criminal
charged with the murder of
900,000 Jews at the Treblinka
death camp during Wold War II.
The court's action is separate
from a pending petit in for review
of an extradition request from
Israel for Demjanjuk. Israel has
sought his extradition for two
years based on a 1963 extradition
treaty it has with the U.S.
If the extradition order is im-
plemented, Demjanjuk would be
the first Nazi war criminal ever
extradited to Israel for trial and
could face the death penalty if
found guilty of war crimes. Israel
tried and executed war criminal
Adolf Eichmann in 1961 after he
was captured by Israeli agents in
Buenos Aires.
Demjanjuk, a 65-year-old
retired automobile worker from
Cleveland, was stripped of hff
U.S. citizenship in 1981, after be-
ing charged by the Justice Depart-
ment with having lied about his
past activities when he entered
the U.S. in 1952.
A District Court in Cleveland
confirmed his identity as the
brutal death camp guard known
as "Ivan the Terrible" to the in- .
mates of Treblinka where he
allegedly tortured Jews and
operated the gas chambers.
He was identified by Jewish sur-
vivors of Treblinka and by a
former SS man, now a West Ger-
many resident, who knew him at
the Polish death camp. His
lawyers have contended that their
client is a victim of fraudulent
evidence manufactured by the
In a related development, a
scheduled benefit dinner in a Buf-
falo, New York suburb to aid the
defense fund of Demjanjuk was
cancelled on account of poor
weather conditions, according to
the chairman of the group spon-
soring the dinner.
Zenon Botnarskyj, identified as
the chairman of the Western
Branch of the Americans for
Human Rights in the Ukraine,
told a Buffalo newspaper that the
fundraiser will be rescheduled,
although he said a date had not
yet been set.
The benefit had been publicized
exclusively within the Ukrainian
community as a "Ukrainian din-
ner" at which drawings for prizes
will be held. The monies were to
be earmarked for the "John Dem-
janjuk Defense Fund." Literature
promoting the dinner described
Demjanjuk as "an innocent man"
being "persecuted" by a
"Kremlin-penetrated" U.S.
Justice Department. The fun-
draiser was to be held in the Buf-
falo suburb of Cheektowaga at the
Ukrainian Holy Trinity Orthodox
Church Hall.
Rabbis Finish Jail Sentence
rabbis, enroute home from prison
after serving 12 days of a 15-day
sentence for demonstrating
within 500 feet of the Soviet Em-
bassy, renewed their protests
there last week, but were not ar-
rested again.
Still clad in prison garb, the rab-
bis read aloud a letter at the Em-
bassy addressed to Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev. A voice on an
intercom informed them that the
letter should be mailed. Police
made no attempt to arrest the rab-
bis even though they were again
within the area near the Embassy
that is forbidden to
The five rabbis were convicted
of violating the District of Colum-
bia statute prohibiting such
rallies. They chose to do time
rather than accept a suspended
sentence, probation and a fine as
the 37 other rabbis and Lutheran
minister Rev. John Steinbruck,
who were tried and convicted of
the same offense, did. One hun-
dred thirty-two persons have been
arrested in the seven planned ar-
rest rallies that began last May.

Technion prepares more than 70
percent of all the working scien-
tists and engineers in Israel and
is the nation's only comprehensive
univeristy for advanced
technological and scientific educa-
tion and research.
Bloom stressed that "the Israel
government's reductions in finan-
cial support for higher education
are hurting the Technion, but
Israel's national interest is the
major casualty of these budget
cuts at the university."
A few years ago, the govern-
ment covered 75 percent of the
university's operating budget; due
to the continuing economic crisis,
it fell to 66, 60, and now is slightly
more than 50 percent. He em-
phasized that the percentage of
the American Society for Tech-
nion's participation in the univer-
sity's operating budget has doubl-
ed in the last three years, a signifi-
cant increase. But this has not
been enough to meet the short-
fall. The university was forced to
reduce the size of its entering
class by 15 percent this autumn
despite an increasing shortage of
engineers in Israel's economy.
Although the expansion of
science-based industries and pro-
ducts for export is key to the
State's economic recovery, the
Israel government predicts a
shortage of more than 5,000
engineers in Israel by the year

'Good Faith and Credit' Recounts
Zionist History From 1939-1973
The Big Event
Gottlieb Hammer, a Miami
Beach resident, is the author of a
nev book, "Good Faith and
Credit," published recently by
Cornwall Books of New York,
London and Toronto. The
300-page book is a graphic, lively
and compelling account of the
events preceding the establish-
ment and subsequent develop-
ment of the State of Israel from
1939 to 1973.
Hammer, a founder of the Weiz-
mann Institute of Science and
former executive vice-chairman of
the United Israel Appeal, is
credited with negotiating the first
million-dollar bank loan for the
Jewish Agency American Sec-
tion. The loan was based solely on
good faith and credit of the
American Jewish community;
there was no other collateral.
For more than 30 years Ham-
mer, a native of Brooklyn and a
graduate of Long Island Universi-
ty, arranged for more than $1.5
billion in loans for Israel from
banks and insurance companies
all based on the same "good faith
and credit" and with all loans
repaid in full and not a single
defautl, postponement or loss.
Hammer's memoirs begin in the
Spring of 1939, a crucial period
for world Jewry. Hammer then
relates his experiences for the
next 35 years, both as a partici-
pant and a very interested
observer, in the founding and
growth of the State of Israel.
From the opening of the Jewish
Palestine Pavilion in 1939 at the
New York World's Fair to the end
of the Yom Kippur War in 1973,
Hammer's book provides a wealth
of source material that is of in-
estimable value to future
historians of this period.
Arthur Hertzberg, professor of
religion at Dartmouth College and
vice-president of the American
Jewish Congress, in the book's in-
troduction, writes: "Hammer was
the principal agent of the Zionist
movement in persuading major
banks of New York to accept such
intangible guarantees (as "good
faith and credit"), and to lend the
immediate cash which was critical
to the war effort in Israel.
"The running of guns and the
finding of supplies," Hertzberg
continues, "is an even more
dramatic part of the story. Hun-
dreds of North American Jews,
and some non-Jews, took part in
this effort... A defeat in the ef-

fort for supply would have had ins-
tant disastrous effects on the for-
tunes of Israel on the battlefield."
Hammer's book depicts the
maturation of the American
Jewish community as it responded
to the emergence of the Jewish
State. It also presents to the ris-
ing generation of Jewish com-
munity leaders a graphic picture
of the origins and development of
the issues that so deeply concern
them today. The book is enlivened
by personal anecdotes of such
noted Jewish leaders as Chaim
Weizmann, David Ben-Gurion,
Golda Meir, Abba Hillel Silver and
Meyer Weisgal.
In addition to his service as ex-
ecutive vice-chairman of the
United Israel Appeal, Hammer
was president of Zim American-
Israel Shipping Company; chair-
man of the New York Advisory
Board of Bank Leumi; and is a
founder, member of the Board of
Governors and honorary vice-
chairman of the Weizmann In-
stitute of Science. He recently
was named governor emeritus of
the Institute.
Hammer and his wife, Sarah,
are now full-time residents of Bay
Harbor Island. The Hammers
have three children and five
grandchildren. He currently is
busily engaged as a consultant
and financial advisor.
"Good Faith and Credit" is
available at local bookstores at
$17.95 per copy. It is also
available by writing to Cornwall
Books, 440 Forsgate Drive, Cran-
bury, N.J. 08512.
Marvin Kalb, the award-winning diplomatic correspondent
for NBC News, and Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer of Congregation
B'nai Jeshurun in New York are the headline speakers at the
Women's Division major event on Feb. 19 for the 1986
Federation-UJA Campaign. Kalb is a widely-regarded and
respected commentator on international affairs while Meyer
received Argentine's "Order of the Liberator San Martin" in
1984 from President Raul Alfonsin. Meyer helped found the
Jewish Committee for Human Rights in Argentina. Approx-
imately 1,000 women are expected to attend the February af-
fairs. All of the women attending the luncheon will be mak-
ing their Federation-UJA pledge prior to Feb. 19. For more

Soviet Jewry Update________________________
Soviet Report Termed Disinformation; Speculative
By Kevin Freeman
report that an official of the
Soviet Embassy in Washington
told a representative of a Jewish
organization that he believed
Moscow will restore diplomatic
relations with Israel in February
and dramatically increase the
number of Jews allowed to leave
for Israel was greeted with skep-
ticism and even anger in some
quarters by those closely
associated with the Soviet Jewry
According to these officials, the
report in The New York Times
concerning a luncheon meeting
between an official of the Simon
Wiesenthal Center of Los Angeles
and a low-level Soviet official was
a compendium of Soviet disinfor-
mation and hopeful speculation.
In Jerusalem, Israeli Premier
Shimon Peres told the Editor's
Committee of the Daily Press at
its annual luncheon that he knew
nothing of the reported meeting in
Washington. He said that over the
past two or three months there
had been undertakings which
he did not describe by "respon-
sible" Soviet representatives in
conversations to consider the
question of family reunification.
Peres said this was "not a very
precise commitment, but it is an
interesting one nevertheless." He
said other conversations which
took place on a lesser level seemed
designed more for image better-
ment than any practical purpose.
The Premier went on to say that
Israel would object to Moscow
playing a role in Mideast peace-
making unless it reestablished ties
with Israel.
He thus made the issue of Soviet
Jewry and the Soviet's Mideast
role conditional upon diplomatic
ties with Israel, and not upon a
change in policy on Soviet Jewry.
The meeting between the Soviet
official, whose identity was not
disclosed, and the Wiesenthal
Center representative, whom the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency was
told was Martin Mendelsohn, the
Center's legal counsel in
Washington, was initiated by the
Soviets. Mendelsohn, contacted
by the JTA, refused to discuss any
aspect of the meeting or Times
Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean of the
Center, said the Soviet official
was eager to put across two
specific points. These were that he
"thinks" there will be full
diplomatic relations between
Israel and the Soviet Union in
February, before the Communist
Party Congress that month, and
that Moscow is going to allow
many more Jews to leave than are
permitted now.
Soviet Jewish emigration levels
are running at far lower levels
than during 1979, a peak year for
emigration when more than
51,000 Jews were allowed to
emigrate. The Soviets, according
to reports, are seeking an im-
provement in relations with Israel
as a means for entering the
Mideast process.
Failure of the Soviets to renew
diplomatic relations with Israel
and the continued harsh treat-
Israel's Chief Rabbis Are Seeking to Visit Russia
two Chief Rabbis, Avraham
Shapiro (Ashkenazic) and
Mordechai Eliahu (Sephardic)
may become the first chief rabbis
of the Jewish State to visit the
Soviet Union. Shapiro recently
told The Jerusalem Post that they
have already made tentative in-
quiries. He said he has discussed
the proposed trip with the new
Finnish Ambassador in Israel who
represents Soviet interests here
and plans to discuss it with other

Yelena Bonner Visits Synagogue
BOSTON (JTA) Yelena Bon-
ner, wife of Soviet dissident scien-
tist Andrei Sakharov, recently
visited a synagogue in Newton,
Mass. during Sabbath services
and expressed hope that "all the
Prisoners of Zion will be free as
well as all my friends of different
nations and religions."
She seemed to include her hus-
band, a Nobel Laureate in physics,
who is in exile in Gorky for his
outspoken criticism of Soviet
violations of human rights, in the
category of "Prisoners of Zion."
He is considered by many Israelis
to be a "Prisoner of Zion" because
of the help he has given Jews who
are unable to leave the Soviet
Union, she said. Sakharov's fami-
ly are of the Russian Orthodox

Jewish and father Armenian,

nor does she consider herself a
Jew. "My upbringing gives me
deep respect toward all beliefs, all
religions," she said. She is in the
U.S. for medical treatment. The
Soviet authorities allowed her 90
days' leave to seek treatment in
the West for eye and heart
ailments with the proviso that she
would not talk with reporters.
She came to Newton, a town in
western Massachusetts where her
son, Alexei Semyonov, and
daughter, Tatiana Yankelevich,
live. She visited Congregation
Mishkan Tefila, a Conservative
congregation, at the invitation of
its rabbi, Richard Yellin. She
spoke from the pulpit. Her
remarks were translated by her
In expressing hope for freedom
for those refused exit from the
USSR, Bonner referred to "My
many personal friends, like
Anatoly Shcharansky, I hope will
be reunited with their relatives."
She said she accepted the invita-
tion to the synagogue "especially
because there is anti-Semitism in
the world, I find it impossible not
to come to a synagogue."
It was not clear whether her
public remarks violated the condi-
tions imposed by the Soviet
authorities, under threat that she
would not be permitted to return
to the Soviet Union to re-join her
husband. Rabbi Yellin permitted
journalists to be present but in-
sisted they did not take notes in
the synagogue. He excluded

sional capacity because they

levels. Chief Rabbi Adolf
Shayevich of Moscow said on an
Israel Television interview from
Paris that he wanted to visit
Israel and would if he was invited.
According to Shayevich, Soviet
Jews who want to leave the USSr
only need patience. "In the end,
all who want to come will come,"
he said.
Shayevich was in Paris with two
long-time Soviet apologists, Gen.
David Dragunsky and Samuel
Zivs. All three are members of the
so-called "Jewish Anti-Zionist
Committee of the USSR." The
three had come to Paris to try to
explain the official Soviet stand on
Jewish issues in the aftermath of
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's
visit to Paris last fall and his
meeting with President Reagan in
Geneva last month.
ment of Jews in the Soviet Union
have been two of the stated public
reasons for Israel's reluctance to
allow the Soviets any role in an in-
ternational peace conference on
the Middle East.
There have been, in past mon-
ths, speculative reports of immi-
nent decisions to be taken in
Moscow leading to an easing of
the situation of Soviet Jews and
restoration of diplomatic ties. But
officials conceded that they await
firm indications from Moscow of
substantive moves toward Israel
and Soviet Jews.
"We can only assume that the
Soviets are floating those rumors
in an attempt to keep the Soviet
Jewry movement here and around
the world off balance," said Alan
Pesky, chairman of the Coalition
to Free Soviet Jews, the umbrella
agency for 85 organizations in the
Greater New York area.
"The Soviets have focussed
solely on the issue of emigration,"
said Pesky, who added that "not a
word has been said about the
harassment or imprisonment of
Jewish activists on trumped-up
According to the Times, Hier
said the Israelis speculated that
the Soviet diplomat was unlikely
to have spoken as he had with the
Jewish representative except
under instructions. Hier also said
the disclosure could be "a new and
significant development."
Dr. Gerald Margolis, director of
the Center, said in a telephone in-
terview with the JTA that he, too,
viewed the Soviet pronouncement
as "a major signal" since the
meeting was initiated by the
Soviets. He also said, in response
to a question, that "we had no
signals over protracted conversa-
tions that this information was to
be kept in confidence."
Hebrew Teacher Given Exit Visa
Mesh, a 33-year-old Jewish ac-
tivist and Hebrew teacher in
Odessa, has received permission
to leave for Israel, the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
recently reported.
Mesh, who first applied to leave
the Soviet Union in 1977, will go
to Israel with his 9-year-old son
Marat and wife Marina. Mesh's
brother and mother live in Israel.
A former boxer in the Soviet
Army, Mesh has been refused per-
mission to leave, ostensibly for
"security reasons" because of his
army service, the NCSJ reported.
For the past year Mesh has been
under pressure by local
authorities and had been threaten-
ed he would be placed on trial for
his activities.
Mesh has been the object of a
continuing campaign, expecially
by Dr. Joel Levin, a plastic
surgeon in Miami who has par-
ticipated in boxing bouts to bring
Mesh's case to public attention.
Mesh is a friend of Yakov Levin,
a Hebrew teacher in* Odessa ar-
rested and sentenced to three
years in a labor camp last
November as part of an intense
KGB effort to destroy the unof-
ficial Hebrew study network in
the Soviet Union.
Mesh refused to testify against
Levin and other Odessa Jewish ac-
tivists. He was interrogated

New Techniques Save Severe War-Wounded
By Yitzhak Ben
Special to the Federation
JERUSALEM If Israeli ar-
my veteran Eli Ophir had been
wounded during the Yom Kippur
War instead of the conflict in
Lebanon, he would not be shaking
anyone's hand today. Because of
Israeli medical advances since
1973, however, Ophir is up and
about, working and even driving a
"His hand was totally smash-
ed," his doctor said as Ophir, 38,
shook hands with this writer.
"The fingers were all hanging on
shreds of skin."
Ophir was on his way back to
reserve duty in Lebanon after a
weekend at home, when a remote-
controlled mine exploded under
the truck carrying him and about
25 other soldiers. His right arm
was mangled, his neck dislocated,
and the right side of his face, in-
cluding his eye, blown away.
Ophir is typical of the kind of
cases Israeli doctors have had to
treat all too frequently as a result
of six wars in less than four
decades. They consequently have
to be on the alert for worldwide
medical breakthrough that they
can adapt to the needs of the coun-
try's war wounded. The lessons
learned by American physicians
from the war in Vietnam, for ex-
ample, have advanced Israeli
treatment of trauma.
Dr. Haim Stei, chief of or-
thopedic surgery at Rambam
Medical Center in Haifa, says that
Israel's unique circumstances
have enabled its doctors to take
these and other lessons one step
further. Since the evacuation
distances for the wounded are
short, "extremely ill patients
reach our casualty services alive,"
Stein explains. As a result, Israeli
hospitals have developed
sophisticated treatment of multi-
system injuries multiple frac-
tures combined with soft tissue

conventional cast for almost a
year, his hand would have ceased
to function, perhaps permanently.

Rosenne declared there has
been "no change" in the Soviet at-
titude toward Israel but noted
"some change" in the position of
Poland. He said that Poland
recently announced it would open
an "interest section" in a third
country's embassy in Israel. While
this is the "lowest form" of
diplomatic recognition, it raises
some hope that the Polish govern-
ment ultimately will raise the level
of its relations with Israel to that

Rosenne urged his audience to
"continue the struggle for Soviet
Jews so that they are not forgot-
ten, so that the Russians will
know they cannot improve rela-

continue to persecute Jews, and
so that those in the Kremlin who
understand the importance of im-
proving the USSR's human rights

their positions."
English Woman Donates
Marrow to Save Israeli
Special to the Federation
JERUSALEM It's 2,500
miles from Southall, Middlesex,
England to Hadassah-Hebrew
University Medical Center in
Jerusalem, but to 11-year-old
Ehud Dror of the Galilee that
journey meant the whole world.
Susan Hunt, a 36-year-old
secretary and mother of three,
became the first bone marrow
volunteer to come to Israel when
the members of Ehud's kibbutz
family at Beit Hashitta sponsored
her to help stem the spread of the
leukemia Ehud has had for five
years. Neither Ehud's parents,
bothers or sisters were compatible
donors, nor had there been a mat-
ching donor in Israel. Mrs. Hunt
was found through England's An-
thony Nolan Trust, a foundation
named for an English child who
did not get a suitable matched
donor in time. Mrs. Hunt's
medical record was kept in the
computer after her initial attempt
eight years ago to match her mar-
row with Anthony Nolan's. When
the appeal to help save Ehud went
out, the computer found that
2,500 miles away, and completely
unrelated, she was the perfect
match. The odds on finding a
perfect match in an unrelated
donor are roughly one in 300,000.
Mrs. Hunt left her family,
friends and job to rush to Ehud in
Israel. "I've never been out. of
England before," she said from
her bed in the Hadassah-Hebrew
University Medical Center, "but I
didn't give it a second thought.
After all, I've got three children of
my own. And now that I've
donated my bone marrow, I'd do it
again anywhere in the world."
A lifelong Church of England
member, it was her holiday gift to
a small child who now has a
chance to live.
'Order' Members Found
Guilty by Seattle Jury
SEATTLE (JTA) Ten members of The Order, a
violent anti-Semitic and white supremacist group based in
the Northwest, were convicted last week of racketeering
charges that included murder, armed robbery and
counterfeiting as part of their plot to kill Jews, deport non-
whites and overthrow the government. The verdict in the
trial, which began in September, was reached after the jury
deliberated for two weeks.
EACH OF THE nine men and one woman convicted of
violating the 1972 federal Racketeer Influenced and Cor-
rupt Organizations (RICO) Act was found guilty of at least
two offenses. The 10 who were on trial were among 23
members of The Order indicted in April on similar charges.
Eleven made plea-bargain arrangements and never stood
trial, another was convicted of the murder of a highway
patrol officer, and one is still at large.
The jury heard from 370 witnesses and received ap-
proximately 1,500 pieces of evidence to support the pro-
secution's contention that the purpose of The Order was to
overthrow the "Zionist-controlled government. The Order
was charged with the 1984 murder of Alan Berg, the
Jewish radio personality who was outspoken in his condem-
nation of anti-Semitic and rightwing individuals and
device, originally developed in the
1930s to lengthen children's
limbs, consists of metal rods con-
nected to a frame. The rods, sup-
ported by the frame, are firmly
anchored in the healing bones to
immobilize the bones so that they
can set properly.
The primary advantage of an
external fixator over a normal
cast is that it affords medical staff
much easier access to the wound;
they can then treat it promptly as
the need arises.
The external fixator has been
modified in Israel to make it more
convenient and less expensive.
Doctors began using it during the
Yom Kippur War, but did not
utilize it extensively for severe
limb injuries until 1976.
Burn Treatment
In the past several wars,
plastic surgery has played an in-
creasingly large role in treating
the wounded. In the Yom Kippur
war, a soldier with third-degree
burns on 70 percent of his body
was unlikely to survive. Since
then, however, Israeli doctors
have learned from the innovations
of surgeons in China. Doctors at
Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek
Hospital and researchers at the
Hadassah-Hebrew University
Medical Center have developed an
improved technique for growing
skin tissue.
First, the surgeon peels off the
dead tissue not all at once, but a
little each day. Skin from human
cadavers is used to provide a tem-
porary covering for the injured
area, and such skin needs to be
replaced periodically.
In the meantime, the surgeon
Lakes thin skin grafts from unin-
jured areas. Israeli scientists have
found a way' to generate new
layers of skin from the patient's
skin cells, so that eventually the
grafts are large enough to cover
the burn area with good tissue.
One significant advantage of this
method of treatment is that it
eliminates or minimizes the need
to use skin from a cadaver, a prac-
tice opposed by Orthodox Jews.
According to Bernard Hir-
showitz, professor of plastic
surgery at Rambam Medical
Center, burns constitute "one of
the most devastating traumas
that the body can suffer." To
replace the cells, the patient must
consume large quantities of pro-
tein and calories. These needs are
provided at Rambam by the
hospital's own "egg-rich-diet,"
which entails drinking 10 to 12
egg-enriched milk shakes a day
a daily intake of about 35 eggs.
Prof. Hirshowitz points out that
"because these severely burned
patient requires enormous
amounts of energy for the healing
of his burns, we have not en-
countered any raised cholesterol
blood levels or side effects."
Injured soldiers whose faces
are damaged, like Ophir, also need
to have reconstructive and plastic
surgery. This work is done at the
oral surgery department and its
maxillo-facial rehabilitation unit.
In essence, the maxillo-facial unit
is a highly complex makeup
department where human masks
are made out of silicon and
acrylics be they artificial noses,
ears, or eyes.
Although techniques and
materials have improved the past
few years, says Dr. Schlomo
Taicher, head of the maxillo-facial
unit at Hadassah, the major ad-
vance since the Yom Kippur is his
unit's increased involvement and
cooperation with other
Israel's difficult security situa-
tion continues to be a stimulus for
medical innovations. As one doc-
tor commented, "I have two kids
in the army. That's reason

Fighting Starvation: Just Make the Desert Bloom
NEW YORK (JTA) A remedy
to curtail starvation among
millions of people in the Third
World countries is being explored
in Israel: desert development.
Training for this task is now going
on at the Jacob Blaustein Interna-
tional Center for Desert Studies,
where students and scientists
from around the world are seek-
ing ways to make deserts bloom.
The Center for Desert Studies at
the Ben-Gurion University Sde
Boker campus, a branch of the
Blaustein Institute for Desert
Research, has for the past year,
its first, been holding workshops,
seminars and conferences on arid
land research, development and
settlement, Dr. Shabtay Dover,
executive director of the Blaus-
tein Center, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
The Center, he said, provides a
wide range of information and
knowledge on "how to develop an
arid zone, how to provide services
in sparsely populated areas," and
how to change the ecosystem of
desert areas to make them fertile
and life-supporting.
This is the technical element in
the fight against starvation. But
there is also a social element in-
volved in the transformation of
deserts, and that is to assure that
the identities and cultures of the
local indigenous inhabitants are
not destroyed in the process. In-
Mormon Center Under Fire
From Secular Jews
controversial Mormon educational
center now under construction
next to the Hebrew University
campus on Mt. Scopus poses a
threat to secular Jews no less than
to the religious community, a
member of the Hashomer Hatzair
Kibbutz Baram recently told a
press conference here.
Dr. Elli Ben-Gal, a member of
the kibbutz which is affiliated with
Mapam, maintained that the pro-
blem is not entirely religious but a
threat to the entire Jewish com-
munity, even though it is the Or-
thodox who have mounted a deter-
mined campaign to kill the pro-
ject. Ben-Gal appeared at the
press conference convened by the
Public Committee Against the Mt.
Scopus Mormon Mission.
"We, the secular Jews, are the
target population of the mis-
sionaries," he said. "Students will
go to study there (the Mormon
center) because fees will be
cheaper or because they might be
offered scholarships by Brigham
Young University of Provo, Utah,
the educational institution of the
Mormon Church, headquartered
in Salt Lake City.
It was learned, meanwhile, that
the government is under con-
siderable pressure from the pro-
Mormon lobby not to interfere
with the project. Public figures in
the U.S. reportedly have sent let-
ters to the Prime Minister'f Office
urging Israel not to take any
measures which could be inter-
preted as a restriction on freedom
of religion in Israel. The groups
here opposed to the center fear
possible missionary activity.
The creed of the Mormon
Church, officially known as the
Church of Jesus Christ of the Lat-
ter Day Saints, requires all
members to devote one or two
years of their lives to missionary
work. The Church says it does not
undertake such work in countries
where it is prohibited by law.
There has been a Mormon
presence in Jerusalem for many
years. Abba Eban, chairman of
the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee, has defend-
ed the Mormon position. He said
he knew of no attempts by any
Mormons to proselytize Jews. If
the center is halted, a 20-year ef-
fort to establish Jerusalem as an
open city for all faiths may be
ruined, Eban said.
The Mormon project is also for-
tified legally. It has the approval
of national and local authorities
and has obtained the requisite
building licenses from the govern-
ment and the Jerusalem
In a related matter, the govern-
ment recently defeated, as ex-
pected, an Agudat Israel Party
motion of non-confidence on the
controversy involving construc-
tion of the Mormon university
center in Jerusalem, but not

ejected from the Knesset
Only five religious MKs sup-
ported the motion, presented by
Aguda MKs Rabbis Avraham
Shapiro and Menachem Porush.
They were joined by Eliezer
Waldman and Gershon Shafat of
Tehiya and Avraham Werdiger of
Morasha. Other members of
Tehiya and Morasha abstained.
It was clear from the outset that
the two-member Aguda faction
would receive almost no support
for its motion, and that the coali-
tion was in no danger. Never-
theless, Aguda's two MKs and
others from the religious parties
maintained a raucous cacophony

rundown neighborhoods. They
also raised money to send a young
Haifa girl to the U.S. for a life-
saving operation.
But the sea did not reward their
kindness. High waves whipped by
winds howling across Haifa Bay
swept away the landing stage and
gangway, making it impossible for
the men to rejoin their ship. Many
were invited by Haifa families to
spend the night. Others were pro-
vided with beds at a nearby Israel

because it had tabled a non-

"governement discipline law
(1962) is unclear on this precise
point because Aguda, while a part-

The wording of the law refers
only to coalition parties which
have Cabinet ministers, and for-
bids them to present a non-

According to Shapiro, the
Brigham Young University
Center under construction on Mt.
Scopus opposite the Temple
mount was "neither a church nor
a university" to neither of
which institutions he objected. It
was a center whose purpose was
to lead Jews away from their
faith, he said.
Shapiro is understood to have
gone ahead with the non-
confidence motion at the specific
behest of his spiritual mentor, the
aged Hassidic Rebbe of Gur, Rab-
bi Simna Binum Alter. Other
spiritual leaders have been less
certain about forcing a coalition
crisis over the Mormon center.
Rabbi Eliezer Shach of B'nei Brak
is reported to have instructed
Shas' four MKs to stay out of the
chamber during the vote.
Shahal, in his reply, said
Shapiro was voicing non-
confidence "in the wrong govern-
ment." It was, he said, the
previous Likud-led government
that had given all the required
licenses and approvals for
Brigham Young University to
construct its center.
Shahal referred to the Cabinet
decision to establish a ministerial
committee under Religious Af-
fairs Minister Yosef Burg to
monitor the center's activities,
and he vowed that the existing
anti-missionary legislation would
be applied instantly and forcefully
if any attempts at proselytizing
come to light. He also said that
with all the licenses having been
issued, it was too late to cease
Aguda and the other religious
parties are demanding that the
work stop while the Burg

that option and insist that the
work proceed at the site.
tegrating the ecological and the
social elements is basic in the fight
against starvation, said Dover,
who is also associate director of
the desert research institute.
For example, Navaho Indians
from Arizona were taught how to
utilize spring water to irrigate and
grow their own food. "The main
success was that it enhanced their
self-sufficiency and their pride" in
that they no longer had to rely on
government food stamps and can-
ned food donations, Dover said.
A group from Thailand, financ-
ed by the United Nations Food
and Agriculture Organization,
spent two months at the desert
studies center to study Israeli
technology and how to raise algae
as fish food in artificial ponds.
Another two groups, from Kenya
and Peru, were recently at the
Center to learn how to trap run-
off water from desert flash
rainstorms for commercial
Two scientists from the Peo-
ple's Republic of China's own
desert research institute came for
six weeks to work with the
Center's desert ecology group.
And currently, a scientist from
Nigeria is studying how to heat
homes with solar energy.
Despite the impressive number
of students and scientists from
Third World countries, most of
the visitors to the Center are from
Western Europe, Canada and the
United States, Dover said. While
he feels that it is "fruitful" to
have these technologically ad-
vanced scientists and students for
consultations and exchange of opi-
nions, Dover said that "the
original idea was to have more
students from the less developed
countries because we feel that our
research is relevant to countries
in which desert development is
Countries like Australia and the
United States have desert
regions, but they don't feel com-
pelled, nor do they find it
necessary to develop their
deserts, Dover said. On the other
hand, Third World nations in the
Middle East, North Africa, and
Asia have the imperative need to
cultivate their deserts but they
lack the technological skill, he
noted. Israel, however, has the
combination of technological
know-how and a history of having
transformed its own desert areas
into fertile land.
"We believe that our knowledge
should be transferred to those
countries," Dover said, and that is
a primary aim of the desert
studies center.
Other projects in which both the
Center and the Blaustein Institute
are involved include integrating
desert development with the set-
tlement of nomads. "We believe
that in an era of desert develop-
ment, there is no place for
nomadism," Dover said. He noted
that Bedouin society in the Negev
is now in transition "and we are
helping them to become in-
tegrated in die develpment of the
desert and yet keep their own
identity and culture as much as
The Social Studies Center of the

Also at the Institute is the Mar-
co and Louis Mitrani Center for
Desert Ecology, a unit concerned
with the effects of desert develop-
ment and industrialization on the
desert ecosystem. "We must
develop industry and tourism in
the desert as well because
agriculture is not the natural solu-
tion for the desert," Dover said.
In response to this need, the
ecological unit has 12 scientists
researching three basic areas:
ecophysicology, aimed at protec-
ting desert plants and animals;
understanding the position and
function of the desert ecosystem

One result cited by Dover is in
the town Ramat Horav where a
large chemical industry produces
toxic wastes. "We found a way to
segregate toxic material and to
neutralize the water so the water
can be used for irrigating or-
namental plants around sand
dunes," Dover explained.
While the main purpose of the
Blaustein International Center for
Desert Studies is outreach and im-
plementation of projects research-
ed there, Dover revealed that "we
don't put too much effort to con-
tact the people in the less
developed countries mainly
because of the political obstacles.
In many cases we don't have
political relations with these coun-
tries and in other cases they are
defined as our political enemies."
But the Center does reach Third
World nations, Dover said,
"because we publish our work in
international journals and we lec-
ture in many international
meetings," such as a recent con-
ference in Tucson, Arizona, where

According to Dover, the Israeli
government has offered generous
support for the International

despite Israel's difficult economic
situation. If the economic situa-

research and include units on
human physiology and genetic
engineering of desert plants and

For more than 70 years, the
American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee has been taking
care of Jews worldwide whenever
they are in trouble and wherever
they are in need.
Today, the JDC operates in 33
nations, with primary emphasis
on Israel, which receives more
than 30 percent of the budget, and
in Eastern European and Moslem
17 Synagogues
Now Sanctuaries
Jewish Agenda (NJA) has
reported that an ongoing study
had indicated that, as of last Dec.
1, 17 Reform and Conservative
synagogues had declared
themselves to be sanctuaries for
Central American refugees.
The NJA also reported that, in
addition, the synagogues are
located throughout the United
States. The NJA said the study
found that Jewish involvement in
sanctuary aid developed from the
arrests of 12 sanctuary workers
last January in Tucson, Arizona.
Paul Tick, co-chairperson of
NJA's Central America Task
Force and coordinator of the
study, declared that "before the
arrests only two Jewish congrega-
tions had made public sanctuary
He said many of the synagogues
which have become sanctuaries
were initially contacted by and
have worked with NJA members.
He said when the NJA realized
there was "enormous interest" in
the subject, the NJA published a
brochure, "Jews and the Sanc-
tuary Movement."
Tick said the brochure has infor-
mation about sanctuaries, the
history of sanctuaries "and how it
relates to the Jewish community
and what Jews can do."
Asked what makes sanctuary
for refugees from Central
American countries a Jewish
issue, Tick said that "throughout
history Jews themselves have
been homeless and in exile.
Periods of persecution have forc-
ed countless generations (of Jews)
to live in fear." .
He noted that "just one genera-
tion ago, most of toe world denied
Jewish refugees a sanctuary,
while a third of the Jewish people
perished in the Holocaust. The
State of Israel is the way we, con-
temporary Jews, have provided a
safe haven for ourselves."
Mark Epstein, the other co-
chairperson of the NJA Task
Force, said "the concept of sanc-
tuary has expanded to include a
variety of sevices as well as hous-
ing refugees. Synagogues we
surveyed are tutoring, providing
material aid and financial
assistance to churches that have
taken in refugee families."
lands where large numbers of
Jews live in poverty. These are
often "remnant" communities
with many elderly left/behind by
the more able and/the more
mobile. The human red in these
areas is very great. An Romania,
for example, where 10,000 Jews
receive food, clothing and winter
fuel packages, JDC assistance
could mean the difference bet-
ween life and death.
In Israel, JDC's involvement
with the community center move-
ment and community schools is a
creative and effective response to
the continuing economic and
cultural gap. Through the com-
munity school program, school
facilities are used to give
residents a chance to enrich their
lives with a variety of classes and
social programs. JDC-sponsored
programs also serve the elderly
and play an important role in en-
couraging voluntarism in Israeli
JDC's budget for 1985 was
$49.5 million.
In addition to overseas needs,
annual UJA/Federation Campa-
ings fund a number of local pro-
grams and services through
allocated campaign proceeds.
With more money, federations
could improve the level of needed
social and humanitarian services
for a growing and mobile
American Jewish community.
A Record of Pride: A
Challenge for Today
Over the years, UJA/Federa-
tion Campaigns have affirmed the
unity of Jewish people. We have
helped Israel generate numerous
imaginative programs of educa-
tion and human renewal.
We have maintained education
and relief programs for Jews
around the world and strengthen-
ed Jewish communities at home.
Now we share the privilege of
helping one more part of our
Jewish family take its place in the
Jewish homeland. The respon-
sibility for meeting this and the
totality of Jewish needs around
the world rests largely on our an-
nual UJA/Federation Campaign.
Only capacity giving will match
the challenge. We can do no less,
for in our geneation, as in every
generation, we are accountable to
one people, one destiny.

and to present a check of $50,000
for a wing in Beth Hayeled
Childhaven in Gilo, Jerusalem.
"I can't tell you the happiness it
gave me to see 168 smiling, happy
children. These children are or-
phans. They lost their parents by
war or illness," explained
Pearlman. "Beth Hayeled
Childhaven has given them a safe,
healthy and happy environment.
The children have surrogate
parents who care for them as if
they were their own."
Although Pearlman has no
children of her own, she believes
she is a most fortunate woman, as
these 168 children have given
meaning to her life. Both she and
her husband Samuel, emphasize
that giving is part of both their
lives, and sharing with others has
been their path to a happy life.
