New Upsurge
Mass Arrests of Arab
Youths in Old City

By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
A new upsurge of violence
in the Old City and in the
West Bank has resulted in
mass arrests of Arab youths
who took to the streets to
mark the 39th anniversary
of the November 29, 1947
resolution of the United Na-
tions General Assembly to
partition Palestine into
Jewish and Arab states.
The unrest erupted as passions
continued to run high over the
fatal stabbing of yeshiva student
Eliahu Amdi in the Old City Nov.
15 which was followed by nine
days of attacks on Arabs and their
property by local Jews infuriated
by the murder. Three Arabs have
been charged in Amdi's murder.
WHILE MOST of the distur-
bances involved Arabs, a firebomb
was thrown, apparently by Jews,
at an Arab-occupied house near
the Dung Gate, the entrance to
the Western Wall area. Two cars
were set on fire at the Hebrew
University Mt. Scopus campus. A
third attempt at arson was foiled.
A group of Arab students at-
tempted to force their way to the
Temple Mount which was cordon-
ed off by police. A Moslem guard
who tried to intervene on behalf of
the students was arrested. Arab
shopkeepers were forced to close
their doors under pressure from
young Arab militants. Students
managed to temporarily shut off
Saladin Street, the main street in
East Jerusalem. Five were
arrested.
In the West Bank, Arab youths
hurled rocks at Israeli vehicles
and set up road blocks. Security
forces dispersed the
demonstrators and confiscated
anti-Israel propaganda material at
A-Najah University in Nablus.
WHILE Jerusalem police set un
a special team to investigate the
chain of events that led to anti.
Arab violence after the murder of
Amdi, prominent Palestinians met
in the Moslem quarter to discuss
ways and means to protect Arab
lives and property. The meeting
v as called by the Supreme
Moslem Council, the highest
religious authority of Arabs in
East Jerusalem and the West
Bank.
It was attended by two Arab
Knesset members, Mohammad
Miari of the Progressive List for
Peace, and Toufik Toubi of the
Hadash (Communist) Party.
Several Palestinian moderates
also attended, including Hafez
Toukan, the Israel-appointed
Mayor of Nablus, and Anwar El-
Khatib, who was Governor of
Jerusalem before Israel seized the
divided city in the 1967 Six-Day
War. But extremists seemed to
dominate the meeting. Moslem
clergymen called for a boycott of
any Moslem involved in the sale of
property to Jews. Another pro-
posal was to establish an Arab
civil guard in East Jerusalem to
protect Arab residents of the Old
City and their property.
E. Donald Shapiro, one of the
country'8 leading authorities
on legal issues in medicine, has
been appointed Visiting
Distinguished Professor of
Law at Bar-Ran University in
Israel. Shapiro, who is cur-
rently the Joseph Solomon

Law at New York Law School
and a Supernumerary Fellow
of St. Cross College at Oxford
University, served as dean of
the New York Law School from
197S to 198S.
Sharansky Says
Israel Soft on Soviets
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Anatoly Sharansky has accused
Israel of failing to campaign
publicly for Soviet Jews because it
does not want to irritate the
Soviet Union and is overly con-
cerned about "rocking the boat."
He said Israel's "quiet approach"
to trying to promote Jewish
emigration actually helped
Moscow keep the doors shut.

Kirkpatrick Says
Israel Has Reason To Aid Contras
Friday, December 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 3
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) -
Jeane Kirkpatrick, the
former U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations, main-
tained here Monday that
"Israel has every reason of
its own to aid the Contras,"
the Reagan Administration-
backed rebels trying to
overthrow the Sandinista
government of Nicaragua.
But she added that Israel
played only a "marginal
role" in the Iran arms sales
deal.
Kirkpatrick made her com-
ments at the opening session of
the "Jeane Kirkpatrick Forum"
at Tel Aviv University, so named
for her championship of Israel at
the UN. At a press conference
earlier, she discussed the troubles
facing the Reagan Administration
from the sale of arms to Iran and
Jeane Kirkpatrick
the diversion of the proceeds to
the Contras in possible violation of
the law as it stood at the time.

the Sandinistas are "sworn
enemies of Israel" who have
"forged ties of blood" with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion. "The first Embassy to open
in Nicaragua after the Sandinistas
took over was that of the PLO,"
Kirkpatrick claimed.
She said the small Jewish com-
munity in Nicaragua was forced
into exile and even if the struggle
in Central America was not
Israel's fight. Israel had the right
to aid the Contra underground.
And if the U.S. turned to Israel
for advice, Israel had to do so to
the best of its ability, she said.
Israel, while acknowledging a
role in the shipment of U.S. arms
to Iran at the request of the
Reagan Administration, has firm-
ly and repeatedly denied any in-
volvement in or knowledge of the
transfer of monies from the sale
to the Contras.
U.S. ATTORNEY General Ed-
win Meese, at a Nov. 25 Wliite
House press conference im-
plicated Israel directly in the
transfer, saying that "represen-
tatives of Israel" transferred pro-
fits from the Iranian arms deal to
Swiss bank accounts maintained
by the Contras.
Kirkpatrick said "I do not
believe the relationship between
Israel and the United States will
suffer because of the events sur-
rounding Iran and the hostages."
The Reagan Administration
said at one point that the arms
deal was an effort to free
American hostages being held by
pro-Iranian groups in Lebanon.
At other times it insisted it was
not trading arms for hostages but
was attempting to send a "signal"
to Iran that it wanted to improve
relations with Tehran and to
establish links with Iranian
"moderates" who might eventual-
ly replace the Islamic fundamen-
talist regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini.
KIRKPATRICK defended
President Reagan in her press
conference remarks and appeared
to hold others in his Administra-
tion responsible for Reagan's dif-
ficulties. The President bore
"ultimate responsibility," the
former envoy said, but direct
responsibility rested on Secretary
of State George Shultz, White
House Chief of Staff Donald
Regan and Meese.
She said the affair had shown
Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir chats with bus driver
Yaakov Saada during a visit to the Hadassah- University
Hospital in Jerusalem shortly after Shamir assumed office in the
rotation of Israel's coalition government. Saada was vnjured by
terrorist grenades last month during an attack on young soldiers
and their families just outside the walls of the Ola City.
"shocking levels of disagree-
ment" between Reagan and his
senior advisers. Shultz, appearing
before the House Foreign Affairs
Committee in Washington Mon-
day morning, upheld the Presi-
dent's overall policy in the Middle
East but reiterated that he had
opposed arms to Iran and that he
knew "zero" about the transfer of
funds to the Contras.
"I have a sense that at a certan
critical point, the President was
sort of pushed on the stage, out
front, and given the burden of try-
ing to explain and defend policy,
that his principal advisers were
sort of bringing up the rear,"
Kirkpatrick said. "They had in-
itiated a policy in which they had
failed."
AT ANOTHER point she said
she was "amazed" to learn that
senior Administration officials
were responsible for the sale of
arms to Iran via Israel, and the
flow of funds to the Contras.
In reply to a question, she said
she was not a candidate for the
Vice Presidency in 1988. She
hinted, however, that she might
replace Shultz should he resign.
President Chaim Herzog of
Israel, who attended the opening
of the Tel Aviv University forum,
praised Kirkpatrick as a "great
American and true friend" of
Israel. "We are happy that your
long-term and courageous con-
nection with Israel now receives a
permanent stamp," he said, refer-
ring to the naming of the forum in
her honor.
'Games' Parties
Escape Prosecution
BONN (JTA) The State
Prosecutor in Darmstadt has
dropped proceedings against
unknown parties responsible for a
ghoulish parlor game which sends
pawns representing Jews to Nazi
death camps, because no dues to
their identity have been found
after nearly a year of investiga-
tion, it was announced last week.
A spokesman for the Prosecutor
said it is likely that the games
were manufactured in the United
States. If so, it might take years
to gather evidence, by which time
the perpetrators would benefit
from the statute of limitations.
Copies of the board game were
mailed anonymously to 70 schools
all over West Germany at the
beginning of the year. The parcels
were postmarked in Darmstadt.

Violence Poses Dilemma of Israel's Legitimacy
The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shamir's
Unity Government is meeting as a
Ministerial Defense Committee these days
to discuss the continuing violence on the
West Bank. As of early this week three
Arabs have already been killed by Israel
Defense Forces soldiers a 14-year-old boy
near Nablus and two 22-year-old students at
the Bir Zeit Unive "ty.
Obviously, a time jomb is rapidly ticking
away in this occupied region. It does little
good when Maj. Gen. Ehud Barak, the com-
mander of the central front, explains the
three deaths by declaring that in both in-
stances soldiers followed the approved pro-
cedure when the Arab rioting got out of
hand.
Approved procedure includes these steps
to be taken against Arabs involved m
violence: orders to cease; followed by firing
of weapons into the air if the orders are not
carried out; followed finally by firing at the
feet of rioters who have disregarded the
first two orders to emphasize that IDF or
border patrol personnel mean business.
An Unpleasant Parallel
But none of this explains how bullets aim-
ed at the feet of rioters in the end inflicted
fatal wounds on the three Arab youths. Nor
will these procedures ever do any good as a
means of appeasing Arab residents on the
West Bank. It may well be that nothing will
do any good to settle the volatile air of Arab
discontent, and as Israeli frustration mounts
in the matter of maintaining civil order, in-
creasingly oppressive measures are likely to
mount as well.
It is not a pleasant parallel, but the deter-
mination of the ruling South Africa govern-
ment to maintain its apartheid policies is in
the end bound to fail as it enforces these
policies against growing black civil disobe-
dience and increasing pressure from abroad
to put an end to it.
None of this suggests that the parallel
holds in entirety. Israel is a legitimate na-
tion, and its government is legitimate within
specified geographic boundaries. Within
these boundaries, there are Arabs who con-
tinue to question this legitimacy by acts of
violence. Abroad, there are forces, for exam-
ple the Palestine Liberation Organization,
determined to put an end, not just to Israel's
legitimacy, but to its facticity as a nation.
Rut of Official Policy
In Israel's struggle to keep Israeli Arabs
as an allegiant part of the country's total
population, it has every right to defend itself
against disobedience that includes
everything from rioting to the murder of
Israeli citizens.
And in Israel's armed struggle against ter-
rorism from abroad, it has every right to
counter acts of warfare with acts of warfare
of its own.
It is in the occupied territories where pro-
blems arise where the questioned
legitimacy of Israel's claims on the West
Bank and in Gaza shifts the focus on Israel,
right or wrong, from a nation of order to one
of oppression. Just as the South African na-
tion, once regarded as a legitimate govern-
ment, has no right to deny blacks their
democratic rights, Israel must come to more
realistic terms with the destiny of the ter-
ritories than shape some of the fantasies

controlling its policies in the territories
today.
^The fact is that every responsible Israel
government leader knows tnis but too
many of them remain in the rut of official
policy that suggests that the Arabs there
must be made to accept Israeli occupation as
an unalterable fact.
Time Bomb Ticking
For example, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said the other day that Israel must br-
ing Arab youths into service in the IDF;
otherwise, how would they ever be expected
to acquire a sense of citizenship within the
nation as a whole? And Minister of Com-
merce and Industry Ariel Sharon has
declared that the only way to counter Arab
rioting in the territories is to increase
Jewish settlement there.
Rabin's suggestion seems proper enough
on its face. But if Arab youths are disaf-
fected, indeed totally rebellious against the
thought of allegiance to Israel, then bringing
them to service in the IDF could be irrele-
vant as a solution to the problem, if not
downright dangerous.
So far as Sharon's recommendation is con-
cerned, it has been the backbone of Prime
Minister Shamir's West Bank policy since
his first prime ministership as an extension
TH6 srecrmxfi
*n?S<
of the policy of his predecessor, Menachem
Begin. And what good has that done?
The fact is that the violence escalates daily
in the territories. Some real movement in
the direction of solving the problem must be
made. And soon. Unfortunately, the current
international obsession with Iranscam, in-
cluding Israel's role in it as an agent of the
Reagan Administration, preoccupies the
leaders of both governments to the exclu-
sion almost of all other business.
Meanwhile, the West Bank time bomb
keeps ticking away.
U.S., Israel Urged
'Come Clean' on Iran, Contra Rebel Funds
Friday, December 12,1986
Volume 16
10KISLEV5747
Number 34
By WINSTON PICKETT
Tom Dine, the
director of the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee, has urged Israeli
and American leaders to
"come clean" in divulging
every possible detail about
the controversial arms sales
to Iran and the
U.S.-supported Contra
rebels fighting to overthrow
the Sandinista government
in Nicaragua.
Speaking to supporters of
AIPAC during a fund-raising sw-
ing through northern California,
Dine stated that it is in the best in-
terest of U.S.-Israel relations to
answer the questions that Jews
and non-Jews alike have begun to
pose.
"Did Israel sell arms to the Con-
tras with the authority of the
President of the United States?"
Dine asked during one talk to 600
AIPAC supporters at the Fair-
mont Hotel in San Francisco.
"Did it circumvent American
law or manipulate American
foreign policy? By selling arms to
Iran, has Israel helped Iran's
leader, Ayatollah Khomeini,
spread his Islamic revolution?
These are serious questions, and
ones which require serious
answers."
BUT DINE, who stated that
"the truth hurts, but is better to
get it out in the short run," said he
is confident that Israel's Knesset
will get to the bottom of that coun-
try's involvement. "With an
unfettered press and a parliamen-
tary system, the truth will
ultimately win out," he said.
Regarding U.S. actions, Dine
said he hopes a bipartisan Con-
gressional committee soon will be
formed. Describing the Reagan
Administration's involvement as
"the most tangled web of national
and global interests I've seen in
my 20 years on Capitol Hill," the
former Congressional aide said he
is most concerned with how the
crisis will affect the conduct of
foreign policy.
Furthermore, he noted, "in the

Administrations
involvement as 'the
most tangled web of
national and global
interests I've seen in
my 20 years on Capitol
Hill,' the former
Congressional aide said
he is most concerned
with how the crisis will
affect the conduct of
foreign policy.
disarray, some people close to the
President are dividing administra-
tion members into loyalists and
those "who are disloyal to the
President, and this is extremely
unfortunate."
The main problem with this
"siege mentality," Dine said, is
that one of the major architects of
the U.S.-Israel policy, Secretary
of State George Shultz, who "has
been critical in advancing
U.S.-Israel relations in the last
two years," may be forced to
resign.
DINE SPECULATED about
the consequences of a prospective
Cabinet shakeup. He noted that
with Vice Admiral John Poindex
ter fired as the National Security
Council (NSC) chief, and with the
appointment of Frank Carlucci as
the new NSC chief, "we may be
seeing a lightly pro-Arab tilt in the
offing."
Carlucci, who worked for
Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger during the Nixon Ad-
ministration and early in the
Reagan Administration, was a
"strong supporter of arms sales,
especially AWACS, to Saudi
Arabia," Dine explained.
In the event that Shultz is forc-
ed to resign, Dine said,
Weinberger, a strong supporter of
arms sales to the Saudis, may
become a major foreign
policymaker, possibly even
Secretary of State. "No matter
how pro-Israel Reagan is, the
President has to have people in
the State Department whose sup-
port of Israel is unfaltering," Dine
declared.
REFERRING TO last year's
$3 billion foreign aid package, to
the Free Trade Agreement of
1984, and to the "strategic
cooperation" that now exists bet-
ween the United States and
Israel, Dine stated that it has been
nothing short of "amazing, in a
time of budget deficits, what the
Reagan Administration has done
to be supportive towards Israel in
terms of military and economic
assistance.
"Clearly, this whole affair is
potentially tragic when you con-
sider the extent of the bilateral
relations between Israel and the
United States that have been nur-
tured over the years."
It is precisely the un-
precedented cooperation between
the two countries that may be en-
dangered by the unfolding con-
troversy of arms sales to Iran and
diverted funds to the Nicaraguan
rebels, Dine said while noting that
Congress will be acting on foreign
aid appropriations as early as
March. "It's critical that both the
U.S. and Israel clear the air now
before foreign and military aid
comes up for a vote," he said.

Gov't. Insists
Israel Had Nothing To Do With Arms To Contras
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israeli leaders have voiced
strong assurances that
Israel has nothing to do with
the transfer of funds from
American arms sales to Iran
to the Contra rebels in
Nicaragua/ But some
Knesset members persisted
in their charges that Israel
was involved and assailed
Israeli arms sates abroad in
general. The sales were
defended by Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir told
reporters here that Israel has in-
formed the U.S. government and
hopefully American public opinion
that there was no link between the
government of Israel and the
Contras.
"Israel has never helped or
assisted the Contras in Central
America," he said. He hoped that
the investigations to be carried
out in the U.S. will reach the same
conclusion and lay the matter to
rest.
VICE PREMIER and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres
categorically denied that Israel
reaped financial gains from the re-
sale of American weapons to Iran
with the specific approval and at
the request of the Reagan Ad-
ministration. He insisted, at a
gathering in Pardes Hanna, that if
any money paid by Iran reached
the Contras, it was without
Israel's knowledge.
"Representatives of Israel"
were alleged by U.S. Attorney
General Edwin Meese at a White
House press conference recently
to have transferred $10-$30
million of the money paid by Iran
for the arms to a Swiss bank ac-
count maintained by the Contras,

backed rebels trying to overthrow
the Sandinista government of
Nicaragua.
President Reagan, who claims
he was not informed that Iranian
money was going to the Contras,
said in an interview with Time
magazine November 26 that
"Another country was facilitating
those sales of weapons systems"
and "They then were overcharg-
ing and were apparently putting
the money into bank accounts of
the leaders of the Contras."
REAGAN DID not name the
other country. White House Press
Secretary Larry Speakes said that
Reagan was not implicating Israel
because he knows nothing about
the secret bank account set up for
the Contras in Switzerland.
MK Chaika Grossman of Mapam
charged that Israeli instructors
were helping the Contras and
Israeli arms dealers were supply-
ing them with weapons. She said
she based her information on a re-
cent visit to Nicaragua where she
met with Sandinista officials.
The Knesset struck from its
agenda two motions to debate the
sale of arms by Israel to Third
World countries. MK Matityahu
Peled of the Progressive List for
Peace said Israel was ashamed of
its arms customers and they were
ashamed of Israel, a reference to
the virulently anti-Israel regime
of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini in Tehran.
PELED SAID that was why the
arms deals were kept secret until
they leaked out abroad. He said
the Israeli arms industry was
overgrown and therefore hungry
for new markets.
Rabin, speaking for the govern-
ment, conceded that the defense
industry had to export to survive
but he noted that the proportion
of Israeli weapons being used in
the Iran-Iraq war was insignifi-
cant compared to those of the
Soviet Union and other powers.
Rabin also vigorously denied
that Israel was providing military
aid to the Contras. Israel supplies
neither arms, money nor know-
how and has not authorized
anyone else to supply arms,
money or know-how or any other
aid, to the Contras, he said. He
reiterated that all Israel has done
was to deliver American weapons
to Iran at the request of the
American administration.

Renee and Martin Harnick Kick Off Bonds
Chanukah Celebration In Parker Plaza
Martin and Renee Harnick of
Parker Plaza in Hallandale, have
accepted Prime Minister Plaque
from Arthur Marcus, Director of
South Broward State of Israel
Bonds. The Harnicks are
Chairmen of the Bonds Chanukah
Celebration, scheduled for Tues-
day evening, Dec. 23,8 p.m. in the
Plaza Room, at 2030 S. Ocean
Drive. As a kick-off gesture, they
purchased a VRI (Variable Rate
Issue) Bond ($25,000) that yields
minimum rate of interest of 7.50
percent, payable twice annually,
keyed to the Prime Rate.
Renee says she and Martin were
both weened on Yiddishkeit, and
were actively involved with Israel
Bonds since its inception in 1951.
She was president and helped
form the Sophie Tucker Hadassah
Chapter in Florida. They were
members of Temple Beth Torah in
North Miami Beach. She served as
former president of Brown Light
Cancer Unit of Pap Institute, is a
member of ORT and other

tin Harnick is responsible for the
invoking of the Grandfather
Clause for Pharmacists, enabling
them to take Florida State
Boards. Renee received the first
Chai Award from Israel Bonds,
presented to her by one of Israel's
leading generals.
Their many trips to Israel have

High Court Rules
It Won't Hear Nazi's
Appeal Against Extradition
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) -
The Supreme Court has
refused to hear an appeal by
Nazi war criminal Karl Lin-
nas against deportation to
the Soviet Union where he
was convicted and sentenc-
ed to death in absentia for
participating in the mass
murders of Jews and others
at a concentration camp in
Tartu, Estonia, during
World War II.
Linnas, 66, was charged by the
Justice Department's Office of
Charles Allen, Jr.
Special Investigations with lying
about his wartime activities when
he came here in 1951 from Ger-
many under the Displaced Per-
sons Act of 1948. He became a
U.S. citizen in 1960. The Justice
Department said he will be
deported to the USSR, the only
country that will accept him.
ACCORDING TO the charges,
Linnas joined a Nad execution
squad in 1941 when Germany oc-
cupied Estonia, the purpose of
which wss to exterminate
"undesirables," mostly Jews. He
is accused of commanding firing
squads that killed men, women
and children forced to kneel
before mass graves and of per-
sonally shooting several inmates
at the Tartu camp.
The Supreme Court decision
was hailed by Jewish organiza-
tions, Holocaust survivor groups
and political figures.
Brooklyn District Attorney
Elizabeth Holtzman, who as a
New York Congresswoman spon-
sored legislation that allows
deportation of Nazi war criminals,
congratulated the OSI "for its un-
tiring efforts to bring Linnas to
justice. Our country should no
longer be a sanctuary for this
brutal killer. The Second Circuit
called Linnas 'a man who ordered
the extermination of innocent
men, women and children kneel-
ing at the edge of a mass grave."
I AM particularly pleased by the
Supreme Court's action because
Linnas claimed that the law I
wrote to prevent the United
States from providing haven for
Nazi killers, the so-called
Holtzman Amendment, was un-
constitutional. Linnas mocked
U.S. justice by arguing that he
should be deported to the Esto-
nian Consulate, the New York Ci-
ty headquarters of the former
government of Estonia. I urge the
102 Jews Exit
NEW YORK (JTA) Only
102 Jews were allowed to leave
the Soviet Union last month, it
was reported by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry. Of this
total, 32 went to Israel, according
to the Conference. In November,
1985, 128 Jews left the USSR.
Department of Justice to take
swift action to deport Linnas."
Eli Rosenbaum, World Jewish
Congress general counsel and
former OSI prosecutor, said: "It's
really a tribute to the work of OSI
and the work of Elizabeth
Holtzman, without whom this
would never have been possible,
and also to the fine work of U.S.
Attorney Rudolph Giuliani, who
personally argued the appeal in
the Second Circuit Court of
Appeals."
Rosenbaum said that "there
was an unconscionable delay for
19 years in commencing legal pro-
ceedings" and that "at long last,
the day for which we have waited
25 years has arrived. Karl Lin-
nas's final appeal has been heard
and he will be deported at last."
ABRAHAM FOXMAN,
associate national director and
head of the International Affairs
Division of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, called the
deportation of Linnas "more than
an act of justice. It is a warning to
present and future generations
against the horrors of genocide
and a reminder that apathy and
indifference helped make possible
the Holocaust."
Charles Allen, Jr., who began
investigations of Linnas in 1962
and interviewed him several
times, both by phone and in per-
son st his Greenlawn, N.Y., subur-
ban home, said that Linnas had
even then "expressed no
remorse" for his wartime ac-
tivities. Allen said that Linnas had
then threatened him and his fami-
ly with "liquidation" for being "a
Jew Communist Bolshevik" while
screaming hysterically.
Allen said that Linnas had
shown anger and anxiety that the
charges had surfaced in the
media. However, Allen told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Lin-
nas "talked fully, very volubly, ad-
mitting he was a member of the
guard unit" at the Tartu concen-
tration camp, as well as a member
of the Estonian National Army, a
collaborator group.
ALLEN WROTE about Linnas
in his 1963 book, "Nazi War
Criminals Among Us," and in
"The Basic Handbook of Nazi
War Criminals in America,"
published in 1985. Allen said that
Linnas had been living quietly in
Long Island since 1959.
Linnas was found guilty by the
U.S. District Court, Eastern
District, in July, 1981, a decision
he appealed before the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the Second Circuit
in January, 1982. That court
unanimously affirmed the appeal
for denaturalization. He then
tried to have the Supreme Court
strike down the second court's
ruling.
In June, 1982, the OSI filed
charges against Linnas, and hear-
ings were heard on these charges
in December, 1982 and January,
1983 before the New York Im-
migration Court in New York Ci-
ty. He was ordered deported on
May 29, 1983. Linnas appealed
the deportation decision to the
Board of Immigration Appeal
(BIA) in July, 1983.
On July 31, 1984, he was found
deportable by the BIA, which
remanded his case to the immigra-
tion judge over the question of
U.S. refusal to recognize
Estonia's incorporation into the
Soviet Union. "Notwithstanding
this move, both the BIA and the
State Department ruled that such
consideration did not debar his
deportation," said Allen.
LINNAS HAS been held since
April at the Metropolitan Correc-
tional Center in New York, a
detention facility for those
awaiting sentencing.

Christmas in Schools
Leaves Jewish Children Alienated
NEW YORK The
celebration of Christmas in
public schools often leaves
non-Christian children feel-
ing unnecessarily alienated,
according to an American
Jewish Committee
pamphlet.
Marilyn Braveman, director of
education of the AJC, and author
of the pamphlet titled "The
December Dilemma," calls on
school boards, principals, teachers
and parents to cooperate in
developing non-devotional holiday
programs in which all children can
participate.
The pamphlet offers the follow-
ing guidelines:
Holiday celebrations should
not occupy an unduly large por-
tion of school time.
School plays should be chosen
carefully to avoid overtly religious
material or scenery.
Religious music should not
dominate holiday concerts, which
also should feature folksongs or
seasonal music.
Decorations and exhibits
should not include expressly
religious themes.
TEACHERS AND ad-
ministrators, the pamphlet con-
tinues, have a special obligation to
be sensitive to all students' feel-
New Generation
Of Orthodox
Jews Assailed
STAMFORD, Conn. (JTA) -
U.S. Orthodox Jewry is now able
to provide "alternative leader-
ship" to American Jewry in lieu of
those leaders who have abandon-
ed Jewish tradition, according to
Rabbi Moshe Sherer, president of
Agudath Israel of America.
Speaking here recently at the
opening of the Orthodox organiza-
tion's 64th national convention,
Sherer hailed the ascendancy of a
new generation of Orthodox Jews
committed to the Torah and ac-
tivism on its behalf.
ings regarding their religious
beliefs. Teachers should avoid-
singling out students who choose
not to participate in certain
celebrations for religious reasons,
the pamphlet adds, and they
should not be asked to explain
their religious beliefs. However,
the pamphlet notes that if
students should choose to discuss
their religious beliefs or to display
religious articles to the class (for
example, in show and tell"), then
they should be listened to
respectfully.
Legally, the pamphlet adds, the
U.S. Supreme Court has barred
organized school prayer, bible
readings and performances of
hymns or other religious music in
a devotional context in public
schools.

Christmas Capitalism
The Packaging of Fievel Mousekewitz
Friday, December 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 7
-------.---------1-------------------1----------,-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------;------;-------------------.----------------1-------
By ANDREW MUCHIN
What's a nice Jewish car-
toon character like Fievel
Mousekewitz doing in places
like these?
The rodent star of Steven
Spielberg's new animated film,
"An American Tail," is the
centerpiece of two major
Christmas sales promotions, both
apparently with Spielberg's
blessing.
At more than 7,000 McDonald's
restaurants across the United
States, Fievel is pictured on four
facsimile-stocking Christmas tree
ornaments, each given free to pur-
chasers of a $5 book of gift
certificates.
THE BOOKS also contain a
coupon for $5 off a $25 Fievel doll
at 801 Sears department stores
nationwide. Sears has exclusive
rights to sell merchandise based
on the movie's characters, accor-
ding to James Podany, director of
marketing communications for
Sears Roebuck and Co., Chicago.
Sears is placing the characters
on a variety of children's products
as a draw for sales during the
Christmas season, however,
Podany insisted that Fievel is not
pictured on any Christmas-related
items such as a wreath or tree
ornament.
The use of an identifiably
Jewish character to boost
Christmas sales is incongruous to
say the least, isn't it? "I think it's
ill-advised" and "tacky," said Dr.
Eliot Spack, executive, director of
the Coalition for Alternatives in
Jewish Education. He noted that
he was expressing his own opi-
nions, not his organization's
policy.
HOWEVER, he said that the
Fievel campaigns did not pose ma-
jor assimilation problems for
Jews. "I'm not personally worried
that we're going to lose thousands
of Jews over it," he said, explain-
ing that children won't easily
identify the mouse as Jewish,
since Fievel is an uncommon
Jewish name.
He chalked up the Fievel promo-
tions to capitalism. "Chanukah
and Jewish linkages have clearly
been exploited for many years" in
the promotion of Christmas and
non-religious events, he added.
Spokespeople for the companies
involved, in interviews with JTA,
denied any tackiness or incongrui-
ty in the use of Fievel.
Podany of Sears said the Fievel-
centered campaign appears at
Christmas-time only to concur
with the release of the movie.

Herzog's Trip to Germany
Brings Shamir Under Fire
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has
come under fire from his
Likud Herut colleagues for
supporting President Chaim
Herzog's scheduled state
visit to West Germany next
year.
The Herut Party Secretariat
adopted a resolution at a stormy
meeting in Tel Aviv over the
weekend demanding that the
party's Cabinet ministers oppose
the trip and prevail upon Herzog
to cancel it. Shamir was not at the
meeting.
THE TRIP, announced last
month after Herzog's return from
a two-week tour to Australia, New
Zealand and Southeast Asia, has
been attacked in both leftwing
and rightwing circles. They say it
could be interpreted as a symbolic
forgiveness of the Germans for
their Nazi past.
Herzog has argued that his
three-day stay in the Federal
Republic will focus on the
Holocaust. He plans to attend a
memorial service at the site of the
Bergen-Belsen concentration
camp. His trip will reciprocate the
visit to Israel last year by West
Germany's President Richard von
Weizsaecker.

Meanwhile, Herzog's Southeast
Asia visit is having repercussions
in Malaysia, where he did not go,
and Singapore, where he was
greeted by anti-Israel demonstra-
tions. Malaysia is an Islamic coun-
try which does not have
diplomatic relations with Israel.
Singapore has, but is strongly in-
fluenced by its Islamic neighbors,
Malaysia to the north, Indonesia
to the west and south and Brunei
to the southeast.
CHARGES OF "Zionist in-
terference" in Malaysia's internal
affairs were raised in that coun-
try's English-language weekly
Watan last week. It reported on
an "Anti-Jew Day" speech by
Mustapha Ali, the Islamic Party
youth leader. He charged that the
U.S.-based Asia Foundation is a
"front" for American Jews and
demanded that its office in Kuala
Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, be
closed. He was quoted as saying,
"Our determination is to destroy
the Jews and also to stop all cam-
paigns that are carried out by non-
Jews who wish to obstruct the ex-
pansion of Islam."
The Straits Times, an English-
language daily in Singapore,
reported that Mustapha Ali also
charged that Singapore policy was
influenced by a Jew, Alex Josey,
the biographer of Singapore
Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew,
whom he formerly served as press
spokesman. Lee warmly welcom-
ed Herzog to Singapore last
month.
More Violence
In Jerusalem
JERUSALEM (JTA) Anti-
Arab violence and vandalism con-
tinues in the Old City. A Molotov
cocktail was thrown at an Arab-
occupied house in the Moslem
quarter, causing slight damage
but no casualties. Several more
blazing gasoline bombs were
found in the neighborhood, near
the Shuvu Banim yeshiva where
stabbing victim Eliahu Amdi had
been a student.
Inc., both of Universal City,
Calif., acknowledged that Fievel
is Jewish and even receives
Chanukah gifts in the film, but he
said the film is less a Jewish story
than one of immigration that
fosters universal American values
such as the "melting pot."
"No one thought of it with a
religious significance," he said of
the many Jews, including himself
and Spielberg, among the leader-
ship of Amblin and Universal.
"We would probably be as sen-
sitive as anybody," he added.
But might not children who see
the film and then see the
character pushing Christmas sales
get the wrong impression of
Judaism? "I really don't think so,"
he said. "I don't think anybody
here thought of it as being as
much of a Christmas promotion as
a (generally ecumenical) holiday
promotion." According to Terri
Capotosto, media relations
manager for McDonald's Corp.,
Oak Brook, 111., the movie
represents American values of
inter-cultural understanding,
hope and family heritage.
MOREOVER, both Capotosto
and McDonald's customer rela-
tions repesentative Chris Garrity
noted that families can participate
in the Fievel promotion without
gettng involved in Christmas.
Scenes from the movie decorate
the packages of McDonald's meals
for children from Nov. 24-Dec. 24,
which each week is accompanied
by a different Fievel storybook.
She said she didn't see anything
wrong with placing Fievel on the
Christmas tree ornaments, and
added that McDonald's
employees, including Jews, had
Tofu Latkes
For Chanukah
Latkes, also known as potato
pancakes, are a traditional
Chanukah dish usually served
with applesauce or sour cream.
Because they are fried in oil, these
latkes commemorate the miracle
of the temple oil which burned for
eight days following the victory of
Judas Maccabeus in 165 BCE.
But who said latkes must be
made from potatoes?
David Mintz, well-known
creator of Tofutti(R) brand non-
diary frozen dessert and recogniz-
ed Tofu Whiz, recommends his
special recipe for Tofu Latkes this
year:
1 lb. tofu
4eggs
Vi cup flour (or for crunchier
latkes, Vt cup matzo meal)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch garlic
Oil for fryinsr
Combine tofu and eggs in
blender. While blending, add
flour, lemon juke and seasonings
to the mixture until smooth. Then
heat the oil. For each latke, drop
two tablespoons of mix into frying
pan and cook until golden brown
on both sides. Remove latkes to
warm platter. Repeat with two
more tablespoons of mix until
done. Should make one dozen
medium-size latkes.
Variation: Add, by hand, about
% cup frozen chopped spinach or
broccoli to the mixture onee blend-
ed. Heat the oil and proceed as
above.
discussed the issue at length, con-
cluding that Fievel transcended
any one ethnic group.
But she said, "We certainly
apologize if someone has misinter-
preted (the Fievel ornaments). .
We obviously wouldn't do
anything that would offend
anybody."

Covenant of Peace Award of the Synagogue
Council of America to Isaac Bashevxs Singer
(center) in the presence of Israeli Ambassador
Meir Rosenne, who introduced the Nobel
Laureate to the Synagogue Council of
America's annual dinner in New York last
month. Rabbi Baumgard, the SCA president,
called for greater Jewish unity and coopera-

his dinner address. Rabbi Baumgard is also

Mercedes Admits
It Employed Nazi Slave Workers
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) The Daimler-
Benz Corp., manufacturer of the
prestigious Mercedes-Benz car,
formally acknowledged that it
employed thousands of slave
laborers during the Nazi era in a
report prepared for it by an
historian, Prof. Hans Pohl, just
released here.
The report, however, makes no
reference to possible reparations
for the surviving slave laborers or
their families. According to the
report, some 5,000 slave laborers
were employed by Daimler-Benz
in 1941 and the number rose to
18,000 in 1943, most of them
recruited from among concentra-
tion camp inmates, including large
numbers of Jews.
The slave laborers received no
compensation whatever and, near
the end of the war, were so badly
treated that they could not work.
The company ordered the report
last year after it was criticized for
the way it handled claims by
former slave laborers. Daimler-
Benz rejected them initially on
grounds that they had neither
legal nor moral standing. But
later it signaled readiness to
discuss the matter with Jewish
and other organizations represen-
ting former slave laborers.
Taba Arbitration Begins at Geneva Talks
By TAMARLEVY
GENEVA (JTA) Israeli
and Egyptian delegations ex-
changed documents ratified by
their respective governments at a
brief meeting Monday to set in
motion the arbitration process to
settle their border dispute over
Taba.
The meeting took place at a villa
in the village of Genthoux, about
10 minutes' drive from Geneva.
The international arbitration
panel held its first meeting, large-
ly ceremonial, at the Geneva
Town Hall Wednesday morning.
Swiss Keep
Eye on Syrians
By TAMAR LEVY
GENEVA (JTA) Syrian na-
tionals, including diplomats in
Switzerland, are having a hard*
time getting around. The Swiss
government has given strict in-
structions to the police to keep a
watchful eye on their movements
through Switzerland.
The government's orders stem
from Syria's involvement in an at-
tempt to smuggle explosives
aboard an Israeli airliner at
Heathrow Airport in London last
Apr. 17. Britain broke diplomatic
ties with Damascus after evidence
of Syrian complicity emerged in
the trial of Nezar Hindawi, the
Jordanian national convicted of
the crime.
AS A RESULT of the Swiss ac-
tions, even Syrians holding
diplomatic passports have been
subjected to police action. One
Syrian employed at a United Na-
tions Agency in Geneva has been
stopped several times at the air-
port here and questioned at
length, causing him to miss his
flights.
The delegations returned to Gen-
thoux for further talks on pro-
cedural matters, which were ex-
pected to be finished by Thursday.
The panel will then adjourn and
reconvene in Geneva in five
months.
Robi Sabel, head of the Israeli
delegation, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the at-
mosphere at the initial talks was
friendly and cordial. The arbitra-
tion panel consists of three
distinguished international
jurists. Judge Gunnar Lagergren
of Sweden presides. His
associates are Dietrich Schindler
of Switzerland and Pierre Belief
of France.
The Israeli and Egyptian
delegations will each be assisted
by counsel from outside the Mid-
dle East. Israel has selected Prof.
Eli Lauterpacht, a British expert
in international law, to present its
claim to the Taba strip. The Egyp-
tian claim will be argued by Sir
Ian Sinclair, a former legal ad-
viser to the British Foreign
Ministry.
Soviet Union Appears
To Be Making
Overtures for Israel Ties
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Soviet Union appears to be
making overtures toward Israel in the course of quiet con-
tacts at senior diplomatic levels which have been going on
for some time, according to an article in Haaretz by Akiva
Eldar.
AT MEETINGS in recent weeks, the Soviets seemed
interested in a trade-off whereby they would renew discus-
sions on the establishment of Consular relations with Israel
and on the problem of Jewish emigration in exchange for
Israel's agreement to Soviet participation in the Middle
East political process, including an international con-
ference for Arab-Israeli peace, Haaretz said.
The contacts began early in October after then Premier
Shimon Peres met with Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze in New York, The USSR reportedly is
reassessing its Middle East policy, and, according to
reports from Israeli Ambassadors in several European
capitals, Soviet diplomats have expressed regret over
breaking relations with Israel in 1967.
THEY HAVE also indicated it was a mistake for
Moscow to rely solely on Syria with respect to its interest in
Middle East developments. According to Haaretz, the
USSRis aware of Israel's concerns.
In all their discussions, Soviet officials have called at-
tention to television programs and theatrical presentations
in the Soviet Union devoted to Jewish themes as a sign of
their willingness to reexamine Soviet attitudes toward
Israel, Haaretz reported.

Israel Advised:
Reject U.S. Requests for Inquiries
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Cabinet meeting in clos-
ed session, heard its first
full report on the U.S.-Israel
arms shipments to Iran. Ac-
cording to a Cabinet com-
munique, Premier Yitzhak
Shamir made a statement
which was followed up in
detail by Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin.
The Cabinet convened as a
Ministeral Defense Committee,
the proceedings of which are
classified according to law. No
details of the briefing were releas-
ed but Israel Radio reported later
that several Ministers complained
over the delay in advising the full
Cabinet of the affair.
MEANWHILE, David Libai, a
legal expert and chairman of the
Knesset s Comptrol Committee,
said that any American request to
send an investigatory team to
question Israeli citizens and of-
ficials in connection with the Iran
arms deal should be rejected
because it would amount to an in-
fringement on Israel's in-
dependence and authority.
Libai may have been referring
indirectly to Shamir's statement
to editors here that if U.S. panels
investigating the affair wanted to
question Israeli officials, such a
request would be considered on its
merits.
Libai, interviewed on television,
said the U.S. could request Israel
to investigate individuals on its
behalf, but Israeli authorities
would then have to decide what in-
formation to relay to Washington.
For Israel to accept an American
investigation on its own soil would

Damascus-based terrorist
organization. Its members will be

be a dangerous precedent that
could "institutionalize" a threat
to Israel's independence, he said.
HE DREW a distinction bet-
ween the Iran arms sale investiga-
tion and the case of Jonathan
Pollard, the American civilian
Naval analyst convicted of spying
for Israel. In that instance, Israel
permitted American investigators
to come here to question Israelis
thought to have been involved
with Pollard. It was an "excep-
tion" he said because the Israeli
government as such had not been
responsible for Pollard's
espionage.
Israeli officials continued to in-
sist that they were ignorant of the
transfer of proceeds from arms
sales to Iran to the Contras, the
Reagan Administration-backed
rebels of Nicaragua. "Represen-
tatives of Israel" were implicated
in the possibly illegal transfer by
U.S. Attorney General Edwin
Meese who alleged that they
deposited between $10-$30 million
in a Swiss bank account maintain-
ed by the Contras.
But Israeli officials, who
acknowledged supplying arms to
Iran at the request of and with the
specific approval of the U.S., said
that Israel would have been
betraying its own vital interests if
it had knowingly acted to con-
travene the Congressional ban on
arms to the Contras which was in
effect at the time of the
transaction.
A REPORT published in The
New York Times said emerging
evidence in the affair shows a
significant role played by Saudi
Arabia in the arms shipments to
Iran and the transfer of funds to
the Contras, indicating that the
Israelis involved may have played
a leas central role.
The key Saudi figure was Adnan
Khashoggi, a multi-millionaire
businessman. While he brought
two Israeli licensed arms dealers,
Yaacov Nimrodi and Al Schwim-
mer, into contact with Manucher
Ghorbonifar, a well-connected Ira-
nian arms dealer, in 1986, the ties
to Iran were forged more by Saudi
Arabia than by Israel, according
to the Times account
Meanwhile, Nimrodi, a former
operative of Moaaad, the Israeli
secret service, issued a statement
in London aimed at clarifying his
association with the affair, "in the
wake of Western and Israeli press
reports."
NIMRODI, who presently lives
in London, said he executed only
one small deal, at the behest of the
highest American authorities, the

Inouye Says Iran Sales
Shouldn't Hurt U.S.-Israel Ties
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D.,
Hawaii) said here that the
Iran arms sales affair need
not damage U.S.-Israel rela-
tions, though he thought it
possible that Israeli officials
would be asked to testify
before Congressional com-
mittees investigating the
matter.
"I don't see how Israel could
have said no ... if the govern-
ment of the United States asked
for its help," the Senator com-
mented to reporters after a
meeting with Premier Yitzhak
Shamir. He was referring to the
Israeli shipment of weapons to
Iran which Israeli leaders insist
was done with the approval of the
U.S. and at its behest.
HE OBSERVED that even if
the request did not come from
President Reagan directly but
from a member of his National
Security Council, "Israel would
have naturally assumed it came
with the President's approval.
Israel could hardly have telephon-
ed the President of the United
States to ask him if this indeed
was the case," Inouye said.
The Senator, who will become
chairman of the key Appropria-
tions Committee when the new
Congress convenes in January,
reportedly discussed the Iran af-
fair with Shamir, including the
possibility that Israeli officials
may be asked to testify before
Congressional committees.
Shamir told reporters that
Israel has received no such re-
quest to date but indicated it
would not be viewed askance.
"EXAMINATIONS and inter-
rogations are not necessarily a

Jerusalem, The murder has resulted in a con-
tinuing state of violence between Arabs and

sole purpose of which was to help
obtain the release of an American
hostage, the Rev. Benjamin Weir,
who was being held by a pro-
Iranian group in Lebanon.
"After U.S. hostages were
taken ... a meeting was held in
the office of a high-ranking Israeli
government official where the
idea was raised that I use my con-
tacts worldwide and in Iran to try
to find a way to free the hostages.
All this was to be on the basis of
humanitarian aid alone to a
friendly and allied nation that was
in trouble," Nimrodi's statement
said.
He said he acted with others,
and as a result, Weir was released
on September 19, 1985. Nimrodi
said President Reagan told the
truth when he said the arms ship-
ment to Iran was so small that it
could be carried in a single cargo
plane with room to spare.
"EVERYTHING I did was in
the nature of a national mission,
without any reward or profit,"
Nimrodi said. He expressed disap-
pointment that no Israeli leader
has come forward to refute media
allegations that he raked in large
profits from the deal. All he
received was the thanks of then
Premier Shimon Peres when Weir
was freed, he said.
After Weir's release, "the
American authorities reched the
conclusion that they could pursue
their efforts in the future without
my help" and they continued
negotiations with Iran on their
own, Nimrodi said. "At that time
my friends and I were requested
to cease our activities in this mat-
ter. I withdrew from the matter
completely, and was not involved
in any further development."
Officials here stressed that
Israel believed throughout the af-
fair that the American Ad-
ministration was entirely behind
it. They indicated that they could
not believe that U.S. Marine
Corps Lt Col. Oliver North, an
aide to President Reagan's Na-
tional Security Adviser, Vice Ad-
miral John Poindezter, had acted
on his own authority in the Iran
arms deal and the transfer of
funds to the Contras. North was
fired by Reagan. Poindexter
resigned.
THOUGH MEDIA reports have
claimed Israel was sending arms
to the regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran long
before the U.S. became involved,
Nimrodi insisted that "Since the
fall of the Shah (in 1979) I have
not executed a single deal with the
Khomeini government, directly or
indirectly."
Sen. Daniel Inouye
sign of lack of confidence ... At
any rate, I am sure that very soon
everything will be clear and
everyone will see that Israel acted
properly," he said.
Inouye also reportedly discuss-
ed with Shamir a bill he is spon-
soring along with Rep. Robert
Kasten (D., Wis.) to reduce
Israel's interest burden on debts
to the U.S. The bill "should
become a reality soon," he told
reporters. Israeli sources said that
if it does indeed pass through Con-
gress it could save Israel more
than $300 million a year in in-
terest payments.

High Court Says No
To 'Convert' Label for Some Jews
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
A Supreme Court panel has
ruled unanimously that the
Interior Ministry may not
inscribe the word
"converted" on the iden-
tification card of a person
converted to Judaism.
The decision, hailed in liberal
and secular circles and angrily
condemned by the Orthodox
establishment is seen likely to
revive the bitter debate over the
Who is a Jew issue because it in-
volved a conversion performed by
a Reform rabbi in the U.S. The
court ruling is considered a land-
mark because it makes clear the
supremacy of civil law in Israel.
THE RULING was handed
down by a panel of three justices
Supreme Court President Meir
Shamgar, Menahem Eylon and
Miriam Ben-Porat. Eylon, in an
addendum to the ruling, stated
that the word "converted" on an
identification card was contrary
to" religious law. A number of
leading rabbis agreed with him on
halachic grounds, though others
have ruled differently.
A storm is centered on Interior
Ben-Gurion
Centennial
In Finland
JERUSALEM (JTA) More
than 2,000 people, most of them
Gentiles, attended a David Ben-
Gurion centennial gathering in
Helsinki, Finland, last week under
the auspices of Jewish National
Fund world chairman Moshe
Rivlin. The chairman, back from a
tour of Scandinavia, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency Sun-
day that the interest in JNF's
work among non-Jews in all the
Scandinavian countries was
phenomenal especially in view
of the small Jewish communities
in those countries.
In Norway, he said, another
mass rally took place with a Ben-
Gurion-JNF theme. In Denmark,
Rivlin was welcomed at the Royal
Palace and discussed with a clear-
ly fascinated Crown Prince
Frederik Israeli methods of af-
forestation and land reclamation.
Rivlin said the Prince was both in-
formed and interested in matters
of ecology and quality of life in
Israel.
Minister Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz of
the Orthodox Shas Party whose
resignation was demanded here
by Orthodox leaders. The court
acted on an appeal by Shoshana
Miller against the Interior
Ministry. Miller was converted to
Judaism in 1982 by Rabbi David
Klein of Colorado Springs, Colo.,
and immigrated to Israel three
years later, claiming citizenship.
THE INTERIOR Ministry
refused to register her as a Jew.
But when she appealed to the
Supreme Court last year, Peretz
agreed to register her as a con-
vert. He explained to the Knesset
at the time that to register her
simply as Jewish without the
qualifying- "converted" could
mislead other citizens and officials
as to her standing under Jewish
law. But Miller continued to press
her appeal.
THE IRE of the Orthodox
establishment focused on Peretz
for registering Miller as Jewish
even with the qualification that
she was a convert. Ashkenazic
Chief Rabbi Avraham Shapiro
said in a statement that "The
Chief Rabbinate opposed the
(Peretz) proposal all along ... in
our view, a Reform conversion is
just a joke because it does not re-
quire acceptance of mitzvot. It is
impossible, indeed immoral, to ac-
cept such a convert whom a large
part of the Jewish people does not
accept as a Jew."
Religious Affairs Minister
Zevulun Hammer of the National
Religious Party stated that the
Orthodox position is that halacha,
not secular law, must determine
Jewish identity.
The Committee for the Purity of
the People, an Orthodox group, in-
sisted that Peretz resign because
only conversions by Orthodox rab-
bis are valid in Israel. Political
sources said that Shas was not
likely to leave the coalition
government over the Miller case.
BUT OTHER observers said it
was difficult to imagine that
Peretz could comply with the
court order by endorsing Miller's
status as a Jew without qualifica-
tion. Shas circles said the party's
Council of Torah Scholars would
meet to decide the party's position
and specifically, what action
Peretz should take. The Council is
chaired by former Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
The secular Shinui Party called
on Peretz to resign rather than
consult with his party's Torah
sages. As a Minister in the
government he is obliged to be
guided by the high court, not by a
body or religious scholars, Shinui
said.
Meanwhile, the Progressive
(Reform) movement in Israel said
it would follow up its court victory
by introducing six more test cases
of converts denied registration as
Jews.
RABBI MOSHE Zemer of the
Progressive Movement hailed the
court decision as "a stage in our
straggle for recognition and full
rights" in Israel. Miller told
reporters after the court ruled in
her favor that she had a "most dif-
ficult year, a real nightmare,"
waiting for the decision. "I want
to live here as a Jew, not as
something else," she said.
In addition to its ruling, the
Court ordered the government to
pay 2,500 Shekels (about $1,600)
in legal expenses.
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Interior Minister Yitzhak
Peretz, who must comply
with a Supreme Court rul-
ing to issue a Jewish iden-
tification card to a woman
converted by a Reform rab-
bi, or resign, said last Thurs-
day (Dec. 4), that he would
appeal the high court's deci-
sion in the case.
A three-justice panel, headed by
Supreme Court President Meir
Shamgar, ruled unanimously that
the Interior Ministry may not in-
scribe the word "converted" on
the ID card of a convert to
Judaism.
It acted in the case of Shoshana
Miller, who was converted to
Judaism in 1982 by Rabbi David
Klein, a Reform rabbi in Colorado
Springs, Colo. Miller immigrated
to Israel in 1985, claiming the
automatic citizenship granted
every Jew.
PERETZ, who heads the Or-
thodox Shas Party, said in an in-
terview that he would seek a
rehearing of the case before a
panel of five justices. The
Supreme Court usually agrees to a
rehearing on issues considered to
be of major public interest. Peretz
said this issue has "major
ramifications."
He himself has come under at-
tack from other Orthodox rabbis
for granting Miller Jewish status
on her ID card, even with the
qualification "converted."
Justice Menahem Eylon, a
member of the panel, stated in an
addendum to its decision that the
qualifying "converted" was con-
trary to halacha. Many Orthodox
rabbis agree with him on that
point but refuse to countenance
Jewish status for a person con-
verted by a non-Orthodox rabbi.
PERETZ BLASTED the
American Reform rabbi who con-
verted Miller for "misleading"
her. "I believe she came with a
fiure heart and a willing soul to
ink her life to that of the Jewish
people," but "Reform rabbis
plunged her into difficulties by
converting her un-halachically,"
Peretz said. "They would have
done her a kindness had they
directed her to go to a Rabbinical
Court."
As a result of being "led
astray," and given the publicity
surrounding the case, Miller will
never be able to marry in Israel or
in an Orthodox synagogue abroad,
Peretz said. He said that he would
argue at a rehearing that allowing
non-halachic converts to register
as Jews in Israel would amend the
standing law on marriage and
divorce which gives Orthodox rab-
binical courts exclusive
jurisdiction.
Bonn Seeks Arms Sale to Saudis
BONN (JTA) West Germany is actively soliciting
Saudi Arabia to buy arms here and is likely to sell the
Saudis eight modern submarines in the near future.
ACCORDING TO government spokesman Friedhelm
Ost, a West German shipyard has already offered the
underseas craft to the Saudis. Ost said, however, that the
stage has not been reached where the government will
have to approve the sale.
That decision will be made if the Saudis decide to ac-
cept the multi-billion Mark deal, he said.

No- Date Set
Vanunu To Remain in Custody
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Mordechai Vanunu, accused
of passing State secrets con-
cerning Israel's alleged
nuclear weapons arsenal to
a foreign newspaper, will re-
main in custody pending a
hearing on the Prosecutor's
request that he be held in
jail until the end of his trial,
Jerusalem District Court
Judge Zvi Tal has ruled. No
date has been set for the
hearing.
Tal also rejected a request by
Vanunu's attorney, Amnon
Zichroni, to hold the hearing in
public. The trial, when it begins, is
expected to last about six weeks.
Seven witnesses will appear for
the prosecution and five or six for
the defendant, according to
Zichroni. Most of them will be
from abroad and probably will
testify as character witnesses.
VANUNU, a former technician
at the Dimona nuclear facility, is
accused of giving a British
newspaper information alleging
that Israel has been manufactur-
ing nuclear weapons for 20 years
and now possesses a sufficient
number to rank sixth among the
world's nuclear powers.
The charge sheet against him
was formally submitted to the
District Court, and it appears less
than likely that Vanunu will face
the death penalty.
The charges cite two sections of
the Criminal Code. Section 99
assistance to an enemy in time of
war provides the death penalty
or life imprisonment for "a person
who, with intent to assist an
enemy in war against Israel, com-

33 Cases of AIDS Recorded
In Israel As Test Centers Open
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Health Ministry has set
up seven blood testing
centers around the country
to check for AIDS Ac-
quired Immune Deficiency
Syndrome which can be
transmitted through blood
transfusions. To date, 33
cases of AIDS have been
diagnosed in Israel, of which
17 were fatal according to
Ministry figures.
Dr. Moshe Mashiach of the
Health Ministry said 20 of the
diagnosed patients were homosex-
uals, 10 were hemophiliacs, one an
intravenous drug user, and two
others were infected by transfu-
sions of contaminated blood-
Blood donated for transfusions
has been screened for AIDS since
the beginning of the year.
SO FAR, 10 samples were
found to have the AIDS antibodies
and the donors have been located
and asked to undergo further
tests. Mashiach pointed out that
the presence of the antibody does
not necessarily mean the carrier
posure to it.
Apart from homosexuals, few
persons have availed themselves
of the free blood testing service.
The government's Special AIDS
Policy Committee, which initiated
the program, has recommended
that the testing center; accept
anyone producing an identifica-
tion card without need for referral
by a doctor.

Tribute to Irving J. Meyers
Irving J. Meyers has been an in-
vestor in Israel, when it was
Palestine, and continues his sup-
port over the years. Held in high
esteem in the community for his
past, present and future commit-
ment, he will be honored and

Award at a Night for Israel, to be
held Sunday evening, Dec. 21, at 8
p.m. in Hollybrook's Clubhouse,
900 Hollybrook Drive, Pembroke

Guest artist will be Eddie Bar-
ton, well-known humorist. The
prosecution will not request the
death sentence because, while
Israel remains technically at war
with several Arab states, there is
no actual warfare in progress.
The charge sheet also cited Sec-
tion 113 of the Penal Code which
provides life imprisonment for "a
person who delivers any secret in-
formation without being authoriz-
ed to do so and with intent to im-
pair the security of the State. It
provides up to 15 years' imprison-
ment for anyone who "obtains,
collects, prepares records or holds
possession of any secret informa-
tion ... and thereby intends to im-
pair the security of the State."

Death Penalty Plea
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
families of Jewish victims of Arab
terrorists are demanding the
death penalty for any Arab con-

murder. They met with senior of-

and vowed afterwards to continue
their campaign for capital
punishment.
How To Describe
Chanukah To Our
Non-Jewish Friends
By RABBI
SAMUEL SILVER
Temple Sinai
Delray Beach
The Jewish holiday of Chanukah
commemorates history's first
struggle for religious freedom.
The war took place 165 years
before the time of Jesus. Judea
was then part of a kingdom which
came under the control of a Greco-
Syrian king named Antiochus.
Like Russia today, the regime
permitted its conquered people to
live but banned any kind of wor-
ship except that prescribed by the
monarch. His brand of paganism
called for the worship of idols, in-
cluding one of himself.
Every nation under Antiochus
acquiesced, except Judea. Enrag-
ed, Antiochus sent his armies
against Jerusalem and planted his
images in the holy temple itself.
Against this desecration a hardy
group of rebels arose led by Mat-
thathias, a Jewish priest and his
five sons who came to be known as
Maccabeans.
For three years the battles rag-
ed. The fighting Jews held off the
mightiest armies on earth.
Although they began with a hand-
ful their forces grew. Miraculous-
ly, the Jews were victorious! They
routed the enemy and repaired to
the temple where they conducted
a ceremony of re dedication.
Chanukah is Hebrew for
rededication.
Ever since, the Jewish people
have celebrated the holiday for
eight days. Worship services and
sermons in the synagogue glorify
the idea of religious liberty, the
gift of the Maccabees to posterity.
In the home and synagogue, a
candelabrum (Hebrew: menorah)
is the centerpiece of the obser-
vance. On the first night, a candle
is lit, amidst prayers thanking the
Almighty One for inspiring
spiritual heroes to make sacrifices
for a noble cause. On each night
thereafter, an additional light is
kindled. The crescendo of light
symbolizes the enlargement of
forces engaged in a sacred
endeavor.
Chanukah is a gift-giving holi-
day. But, as at all Jewish festivals,
gifts are also given to the poor.
Contributions to charity are a fix-
ture for all Jewish observances.
Christians might have good
reason to share in the celebration
of Chanukah since the Maccabees
saved the idea of monotheism
which some 160 years later in-
spired the birth of a daughter
faith, Christianity.
The Chanukah saga is recorded
in several books of that post-
Biblical literature known as the
Apocrypha. The Books of the Mac-
cabees describe in detail the way
in which the weak overcame the
strong. It is a story which has
been duplicated other times as
well. Witness the triumph of a
handful of colonists under George
Washington against the British.
Witness the incredible way a
handful of British aviators held off
the Nazi hordes. Witness the vic-
tories of the modern Maccabees in
the resurrected state of Israel,
against forces which outnumbered
them 200 to 1. The story of the
Maccabees (also known as the
Hasmoneans) has also been cor-
roborated by archeological finds.
In the tenth chapter of the Book
of John, in the New Testament we
read about Jesus' observance of
Chanukah, which is also known as
the Feast of Lights.
Christians and Jews will join, as
they observe their separate
holydays, in prayers that the Holy
Land and its environs will at long
last enjoy the blessings of perma-
nent peace.
Chanukah is not a holiday when
Jewish children absent
themselves from school (as they
do on the High Holydays,
Passover, Pentecost and
Tabernacles).
The first sound of the word,
Chanukah, is the gargling gut-
tural like the "ch" in the German,
"ich," or the "x," in "Mexico."
Also known as the Festival of
Lights, Chanukah in 1986, begins
Friday night, Dec. 26. In 1987, it
begins Tuesday night, Dec. 15.

10-Day Adjournment
Defendants in U.S. Arms to Iran Await Trial
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) A
Federal judge in Manhattan
has granted a 10-day ad-
journment of all pretrial
proceedings in the case of
defendants charged with
conspiracy to sell American
weapons to Iran.
The ruling followed a request
by the prosecution that the case
be reevaluated in the light of re-
cent disclosures of the U.S. Ad-
ministration's role in the arms
deal. One defendant has been add-
ed to the indictment, bringing the
number of defendants in the case
to 18. The trial is scheduled to
begin Feb. 2.
THE U.S. ATTORNEY'S of-
fice in Manhattan, which is pro-
secuting the case, is presumably
considering dismissal of the
charges as a result of reports that
the Reagan Administration con-
doned and orchestrated arms
sales to Iran through interna-
tional arms dealers in patterns
strikingly similar to those spelled
out in the indictment and papers
filed in this case.
At a previous hearing, Assistant
U.S. Attorney Lorna Schofield
said the recent disclosures has
"no bearing whatsoever" on this
case and the U.S. Attorney's Of-
fice would pursue the prosecution.
But in remarks in court last week,
Schofield backed off from her
previous position.
She said her office needed 10
days to reassess the case in light
of the new evidence which
emerges almost daily of the
Reagan Administration's deep in-
volvement with arms sales to Iran
during the past 18 months.
"We feel it is our responsibility
to evaluate what, if any, bearing
recent disclosures may have on
this case," Schofield told Federal
District Judge Leonard Sand.
THE PROSECUTORS in this
case have clearly been among

those placed in a somewhat un-
comfortable position as the story
of the Administration's role in the
Iran affair unfurls. Admittedly,
the U.S. Attorney's Office was
unaware of the Administration's
covert policy to supply arms to
Iran. But at the same time, the
Justice Department and the U.S.
Customs Service set up secret
bank accounts and arranged a
complicated sting operation to set
up the defendants in this case,
who are now accused of breaking
the same laws President Reagan
personally authorized others to
break.
Attorney Neal Hurwitz for
defendant Israel Eisenberg, an
Israeli, told Sand, "I was led to
believe when called on that Ms.
Schofield had indicated that Mr.
(Rudolph) Giuliani (the U.S. At-
torney in Manhattan) is conduc-
ting a full reevaluation of con-
tinued prosecution of this mat-
ter." Hurwitz said that Schofield
had stopped short of saying in
court that her office was consider-
ing dismissing the charges.
The hearing was originally
scheduled to argue a motion to
dismiss the indictment for reasons
of lack of jurisdiction in New
York, entrapment, and prejudicial
pretrial publicity.
SAND ORDERED all
arguments suspended until Dec.
11, noting that it would be unfair
to the defendants to allow any
more time because all but one are
being held against their will under
the conditions of their bonds.
Defense attorneys also voiced
concern over reports that key
documents in the Iran affair had
been destroyed. Judge Sand
issued an order to the U.S. At-
torney's Office to convey to all
branches of government that "no
person empowered by the U.S.
government or any agency is to
destroy, conceal, or alter any
document, which relates to the
shipment or arms to Iran either
directly or via another country."
