Klutznick Says Arab
Oil Dictates Policies
By Special Report
TORONTO Saudi Arabia's un-
willingness to increase oil produc-
tion to meet the rising demands
of Western markets is an "eco-
aomk decision" unrelated to the
Arab-Israeli political conflict,
Philip M. Klutznick, a former pres-
ident of B'nai B'rith, told the or-
ganization's policy-making board of
The Saudians. with the largest
known oil reserves, are finding it
difficult to invest their huge oil
income profitably, and with the
U.S. dollar depressed in value
"King Faisal believes his oil re-
serves are worth more in the
ground than delivered to the pur-
chaser," Klutznick said.
ADDRESSING THE board's mid-
year meeting, Klutznick, a former
ambassador with the U.S. Mission
to the United Nations, said that
"militant states" such as Egypt,
Libya and Iraq, finding it a useful
propaganda ploy, have been "press-
ing Faisal to use the oil crisis as
a political bargain weapon" in the
Middle East dispute.
But the oil shortage would exist
"oven if Israel did not," Klutznick
The B'nai B'rith board, in a reso-
lution on the energy crisis, urged
that the United States "resist pres-
sures to alter its policy toward
Israel" because of Arab threats to
withhold increased oil production.
"The U.S. and the entire West
can ill afford to rely on volatile
and unstable governments" for
their energy sources, the resolu-
tion asserted.
The overriding long-term issue,
Klutznick said, was that of an "en-
ergy crisis" rather than a "short-
term problem of limited oil pro-
THE UNITED States and other
Western nations "have delayed too
long" in seeking alternative energy
sources to replace severely limited
oil reserves "that are essential to
the petrochemical industry and
must not be depleted as a source
of heat or illumination," Mr. Klutz-
nick said.
He said that gasification of coal,
conversion of solid waste into heat
energy and other technological
means of achieving alternatives to
oil require greater public aware-
ness and accelerated research.

sions last June broadly prohibiting

Chief Rabbis Stress Importance
Of Bond High Holiday Drive
Myrna Amsel Named to Direct
'Operation Outreach9 Program
With the approach of the New
Year 5734, Milton M. Parson,
executive director of the Israel
Bond Organization in South Flor-
ida, has received a message from
the Chief Rabbis of Israel stres-
ging "the importance of the Is-
rael Bond campaign during the
forthcoming High Holidays."
Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren and
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said in
the letter to the major Jewish
communities in the United States:
"This important activity com-
prises the most important factor
in the development and fortifica-
tion of the Nation of Israel, which
continues to be built before our
very eyes, at a time when our
brothers are gathering here from
all parts of the world and in
which Jewish life is being re-
newed, rooted, as it should be, in
the glorious tradition of Israel."
IN CITING the commandments
of the Torah, Chief Rabbis Goren
and Yosef described Israel Bonds
as loans, "the highest form of
charity, as specified by the Ram-
bam and in the Shulchan Aruch."
They called participation in the
Israel Bond campaign "a great
privilege" and those who par-
ticipate "partners in the work of
bringing nigh our complete re-
demption through acts of right-
eousness, as it is said 'Keep the
law and act in righteousness be-
cause my redemption is nigh to
come and my righteousness, to be
They voiced a wish for Jews
throughout the world: "May the
blessings of health and the hap-
piness of good works be vouch-
safed to all our people in all
lands and may the New Year
bring redemption and peace to
Israel and to all mankind."
The 1973 Israel Bond High
Holiday synagogue appeals will
be held at nearly every congrega-
tion in Dade and Broward Coun-
ties. Tom Cohen, a founder of
Israel Bonds and Florida chair-
man for community development
for State of Israel Bonds, is chair-
man of the High Holiday appeals.
Myrna Amsel, a national com-
munity consultant on services to
the armed forces and veterans of
the National Jewish Welfare
Board, has been appointed to
head the newly created outreach
program for Greater Hollywood
of the Jewish Community Centers
of South Florida.
The announcement was made
by Dr. Norman Atkin, president
of the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion, at a meeting of its Execu-
tive Board recently.
"Operation Outreach" is the
first step being taken by the
Jewish Community Center Pro-
gram Development Committee
which was formed last month un-
der the auspices of the Social
Planning Committee of Jewish
Federation. It is aimed at a long-
range goal of Center program-
ming in the Hollywood area.
Miss Amsel has stated that she
envisages a broad program of
services by the JCC's based on
the needs of many members of
the community as well as on the
creative thinking of the leader-
ship of the Hollywood Jewish
"One of the basic premises of
the program," she said, "is that
there is a need for social con-
tact among Jews of various age
groups. This contact could be in
a social, learning or action situa-
tion and it is likely that more
than one area will be used for
the various age groups.
'Older adults, for example,
have a great need for social con-
tact with their peers as well as
with other age groups, but they
also have a need to be useful.
Thus, in addition to a purely so-
cial environment, a program for
this age group might include a
social welfare project in the com-
munity, classes, and discussions

Listowsky Accepts Post at
Temple Sinai, Hollywood
Barnett Bank
of Hollywood
Tyler Street at 19th Avenue Phone: 925-8200
Marty Listowsky, M.S.W., has
accepted a position as full-time
Youth Director at Temple Sinai,
Hollywood, Rabbi David Shapiro
and Jerry Raticoff, chairman of
the temple's Youth Commission,
have announced.
Mr. Listowsky, who received his
Master of Social Work degree from
Barry College and his religious
training at Yeshiva University, has
been affiliated with the Dade
County Board of Public Instruc-
tion, the Central Agency for Jew-
ish Education and Temple Emanu-
El of Miami Beach. He obtained his
social work experience with the
Jewish Family and Children's Serv-
ice. Dado County Juvenile Court,
the Veterans Administration Hos-
pital and the YM-YWHA.
Mr. Listowsky, who has been
extremely successful in turning
Jewish "Jesus Freaks" back to
their own heritage, feels that the
present generation of teens has the
potential to be the most construc-
tive and influential of any in
modern times, "if young people
are offered honesty, sincerity, a
feeling of belonging and especial-
ly given a sense of personal worth,
they cannot help but respond posi-
tively," he says.
Temple Sinai will open its doors
and its heart to Jewish youth, of-
fering outstanding programs for
the coming year. Weekend re-
treats, trips, Saturday evening
events, coffee houses, sports pro-
grams, karate classes, encounter
groups, Jewish identity sessions,
Shabbaton'im and a Youth Pil-
grimage to Israel, are some high-
lights of the religious and social
As part of his Jewish klcnity
program, Mr. Listowsky will in-
ate "Yavneh '73the Answer
to Key '73," a cour>e of study
geared to shatter the influences of
the "Jesus Freak" movement, in-
termarriage, the drug scone and
other alien forces pervading the
Jewish environment
Learning will take place by in
volving students in experiencing
Judaism rather than just reading
about their religion in a sometimes
stagnant classroom setting. Kosher
cooking seminars. Jewish arts and
crafts, Jewish Strings (a guitar
class teaching Hebraic melodies as
a teaching tool), a Jewish repre-
tory theater group, 'Dating-Court-
ship-Marriage" courses, family
Shabbat retreats and creative syna-
gogue services are the means
whereby teenagers will learn about
their heritage, enjoy it and keep
its traditions happily.
In conjunction with creative
services. Temple Sinai invites its
young people and their friends to
participate in a meaningful and
traditionally enriched Rosh Hasha-
nah and Yom Kippur service to be
led by its USY chapter. A "Succah-
tmi" is planned for the first night
of Succoth; Jewish youth will live
the Succah experience by eating
sleeping and joining in Jewish
identity rap sessions in Temple Si-
nai's Succah.
A Simchat Torah celebration
filled with "Ruach" will climax the
holiday programs: but it will be
only the beginning of an enriching
year's activities.

Only the 'Style' Has Changed
It will never be more than a matter of pure speculation
us to why Charles Bray III, special assistant to Secretary
of State William P. Rogers, decided to leave the State
Department at the precise moment that P/esident Nixon
announced the resignation of Rogers and the appointment
of Dr. Henry Kissinger as Rogers' successor.
But historically, the State Department has always
been a bastion of anti-Israel feeling.
President Truman's diaries and papers emphasize this
beyond the shadow of a doubt particularly Truman's
description of the effort the State Department made in
1948 to dissuade him from giving U.S. sanction to the
United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine.
Now that Bray has owned up to the fact that he sim-
ply dislikes Dr. Kissinger's "style." one can only wonder
what "style" is a euphemism for.
And a euphism it most assuredly is, redefining as it
does the State Department's attitude toward Israel in par-
ticular and probably Jews in general.
Nothing has changed since Truman wrote about these
matters. Only the amenities are different. "Style" embraces
a multitude of sins probably best defined by Washington
columnist Joseph Alsop, who wrote in The Jewish Floridian
of Aug. 31:
"If we are to be bluntly honest, some people found it
hard to imagine a Secretary of State of the United States
who was the son of a poor Jewish refugee family with a
detectable foreign accent."
The Shoe of Bigotry Fits
Since the days of Sputnik I, we have been brain-
washed into accepting the blanket superiority of the Soviet
Union in a wide variety of areas that has tendeu to make
us a nation of political and social depressives.
Nothing has been able to mitigate that trend in us,
not even our beating the Russians to the moor
The fact is that these incredibly superior Soviets are
still a bunch of agricultural and technological deficients
that's why these days they're armous to be so palsy with
If more evidence is needed to s'aow them as a gen-
uinely retrograde civilization, that they are more than
just agricultural and technological deficients, then their
behavior during the World University Games is a case in
point. We do not argue that anti-Semitism has disappeared
from the face of the globe.
But western history since World War II has made anti-
Semitism a most unfashionable form of social expression.
Even those who are anti-Semites tend to be a good deal
less frank about it than even before. (See editorial, "Only
the 'Style' Has Changed," above.)
In short, anti-Semitism today is the coin of the hard-
core bigot, who stands alone against a tide of human
determination to grow up. It is a fact that in the face of
this development anti-Semitism seems once again to be
taking an honored place as part of official Soviet policy.
That's what the deplorable Russian mistreatment of
Israeli athletes at the Moscow games was all about. If this
says that the Soviets stand with the hard-core bigots,
then the shoe fits, doesn't it?
They Didn't Expect Outcry
What of the Muscovite charge that there was no anti-
Semitic treatment of Israeli athletes? That the whole thing
was a "Zionist fabrication?"
The answer lies in that incredibly superior civilization
we were talking about, which for all its superiority is
essentially unaware that anti-Semitism is these days a
political liability, not an asset.
What else could they come up with when confronted
with the worldwide outcry against their behavior an out-
cry they did not anticipate and that now gives them cause
for concern that the 1980 Olympics scheduled for Moscow
is in jeopardy?

qgy toward the end that science '
might justify criminal subversion j

Warns Dr. Szasz: when you get
doctors to justify the actions of '
dictators, or to declare as "in-
sane" the avowed enemies of dic-
tatorship, you are taking a giant
step toward the destruction of hu-
man freedom.
To explain his position. Dr. j
Szasz makes repeated reference
to Dr. Arnold Hutschneckcr, a
psychotherapist with a long list
of books to his credit on the sub-
ject of "human engineering.'"

FOR DR. Hutschneckcr. "hu-
man engineering" would include
mandatory psychiatric work-ups
on candidates for public office.
Szasz takes issue with Hutsch-
neckcr because work-ups of this
sort could conceivably be used
not only to protect the public
from bad eventualities (Water-
gate, for example) but to insulate
the public from good ones

CARACAS. Venezuela Every few years I return to Latin
America to make some soundings of what has happened since
my last trip. This is my third visit to Venezuela fthe first two
were in 1964 and 1967). Herewith a few reflections on some of
the directions in which this crucial continent is moving.
There are four main directions today, represented by Argen-
tina. Peru, Chile and Venezuela.
ONE IS Peronism. with its replay of the past and it? re-
awakening o." voices in the corridors of power which we thought
had deadened and been stilled by time. Most observers had pro-
nounced Peronism dead and safely buried. They wore wrong.
After 1C years of exile Juan Peron has been embraced again
by enough Argentinians to give bis new regime a viable popular
base. His earlier method was to ally himself with the trade
unions, which ho knit into a formidable fore?. The "descamisa-

cause Argentina's later leadei I d to appeal to the political
imagination, partly beci c the; lefl a vacuum of social welfare
and social justice.
HE IS SHOWING him If wilier than in the past. He largely
ignores the struggle between the left and the right in hi- \n
party, builds fences to the traditional power groups and the
army. He risks social chaos, as every adventurer-dictator does.
But he has always enj iding over danger, on the edge
of chaos, and this time he ma) manage it.
Here in Venezuela. ipporters of fo/mer dictator Perez
Jimenez have taken heart at the example of Peron's return, and
there are four or five leadei f rival factions each claiming ;o

other Latin American countries is to break away from traditional

which was crushed undi Soviet tanks in Prague.'and whi h
makes an appeal on a continent that has had little actual experi-
ence with communism.
THE YOUNG members oi the Movement Toward Socialism
(MAS) group are reluctant to recognize that Allende's alliance
in Chile has plunged the nation into economic scarcity, political
hatred and deeply polarized struggle. They feel that their own
movement would be different wouifi have less truck with
traditional communism, would have a richer economy to organize
and would be more humanist. V\ nether they are wrong or right
is a question that lies in the womb of the future.
Fourth, the Vcnezualan democratic society is the fourth
and very lonelymodel for Latin America. But about it I
shall have more to write in future pieces.

GOVERNMENT interference
By BOB KtKBtL, Executive Director,
Jewish Welfare Federation of Greater Hollywood
We will >oon be entering a new year 5734. This gives us the
opportunity to reflect on what we have done in the past, the errors
we have made and the advances that have taken place, and a chance
to look ahead to see what our hopes and aspirations for the new year
arc and what our expectations may be.
In 197.'* we raised the largest amount ever in our Jewish Welfare
Federation-Israel Emergency Fund Campaign. Alter all the pledges
are in the final amount wiil be approximately SI.2 million. What is
important is not only how much we raise, but what we plan to do
with the money, how it is to be allocated. We are now in that process
as the committees study the priorities of Israel, overseas agencies,
rational needs and local requirements.
During this past year we have had a number of successful pro-
prams but we have alo had a number of marginal successes and fail-
ures. In any community where there are pressing priorities and where
new programs develop rapidly, there is bound to be a spectrum of
good and not so good.
Our Teen Trip to Israel is an example of a number of these as-
Our celebrations of Israel's 25th birthday were most successful,
siasm and the feelings of the teen-agers upon their return. However,
planning was too late and because of this not enough young people
went. We had 27 participating, which is good, hut if there could have
been 40 it would have been even better. In the planning for the Teen
Trip questions were raised concerning whether to spend three or four
weeks in Israel. The community decided on three weeks in Israel and
one week in Italy. The teens saw this as a mistake: once they were
in Israel they wanted to stay a longer period of time. So you see,
there are positives and negatives.
Our celebrations of Israels 25th birthdap were most successful.
Our Judalca program had its positives and negatives.. We are learning
to work much more closely with the existing synagogues, with the
Browanl Board of Rabbis, and with youth and education directors. It
is most important to the development of a sense of community that
we take into consideration the involvement of both the professional
and lay leadership of that community.
For the coming year much more of this cooperation should be
Bought and developed. This seems to mr to be the most important role
that Federation can play. Federation should not be a threat to any-
existing organi7.ition or institution. It is the responsibility of all of
us to work together to make this the best community possible.
May the coming year be one of progress, cooperation, goodwill
end harmony.

Keeping Up With
The Dow-Joneses
'The problem is," he stated,
looking intently beyond his audi-

his innei' eye, "how to awaken
people to the reality that Israel is
not just a word. The high-rises of
Hollywood and Hallaniiale could,
by themselves, raise two million

ten cents.
"You would think that, if for no
other reason, selfishness would

The words are Sidney Holtz-

every fund-raiser in whom the
phrase "I give up North" triggers j
instant and intense frustration.
And Mr. Holtzman, who received !
a plaque inscribed "In apprecia- !
tion for devoted and effective serv- !
ice as division chairman of the
1965 United Jewish Appeal" (for
the over-the-counter division of the

to Jewish philanthropic endeavors
all his life, he cannot comprehend
the indifference of fellow Jews
who have a "let the other guy do

ridors and heard every excuse

to why a contribution was not pos-
But both Holtzmans retain their
unflagging conviction that with-
out the people of the United
States, Israel would perish, and
each is ready to walk still another
mile if at the end of it lies a
This year Sidney Holtzman
again undertakes the not always
satisfying job of vice chairman of
Hollywood Beach high-rises for
the 1974 UJA JWF campaign. He
brings to it four years as chairman
of the Jewish Theological Semi-
nary, three years as chairman of
the Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies, a Scroll of Honor from
the Israel Bond Orzanization, a
lifetime membership on the board
of the City of Hope, and a dedica-
tion to the precepts of .Maimonides.
Born in the Pinsk area of Rus-
sia, he immigrated to this country
at the age of 11 and grew up in
a household where Yiddish was
the common tongue. He became
involved in Wall Street as a
market maker, a pursuit he re-
luctantly gave up when asthma
dictated a change of climate.
"I never dreamed I would be
forced to retire," he said; "I
thought I would work until I died.
And I liked what I was doing so
much it didn't even seem like
work. But life in Florida is good.
1 swim a little, read a little, play
bridge from time to time."
He also attends meetings of
B'nai B'rith (he is a member of
the Herzl Lodge) and the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee, and he is
on the board of Temple Sinai. In
New Yoik he was active with the
Zionists, and he is an honorary
trustee of the East Mid wood Jew-
ish Center of Brooklyn.
The Holtzman prognosis for
peace in the Middle East is not
cheery; "I can't see how a dem-
ocracy like the United States can
be forced to embrace the Arab
states," he commented. "But the
need for oil can force America
to take a more conciliatory at-
"The Arabs, however, are more
interested in money than they are
in their fellow Arabs, and I can't
see their doing anything that
would permanently ailienate this
country. And five years from now
the Alaskan pipeline should be
able to take up any slack in case
the Arabs cut back. But I can't
foresee Middle Eastern peace in
even ten years."
At the local Mr. Holtzman de-
cries the decentralization of the
Jewish community. "We need one
large Hebrew School, for in-
stance," he says. "To me it makes
no sense that each temple is fund-
ing a separate school. And a com-
munity school would attract the
more than 65 per cent of non-af-
filiated Jews."
But his most profound lament
is reserved for the doors that will
close when the new campaign gets
underway. He calls the people be-
hind those doors "non-thinking
Jews." And since he is a very
thoughtful man, who has a better

Adult Education
Temple Sinai's Adult Education
program began Sunday night with
the first of four "Evenings With
the Rabbi."
The informal programs which
will be held in private homes, will
afford congregants the opportunity
to engage in dialogue with their
rabbi in a relaxed setting for dis-
cussing the concept of these four
Rabbi Kingsley said. "Many peo-
ple never get to know me as a
person, nor do they have the op-
portunity to share their feelings
with me during the somewhat
structured atmosphere of the Sab-
bath service.
While I encourage dialogue
during Torah study on Saturday
morning, the environment is still
too formal for some. We hope to
build a few bridges of communica-
tion this way, while also deepen-
ing levels of Jewish learning."
Adult Education courses planned
for the year include a mini-course
in "Critical Issues Facing Reform
Judaism," as well as courses in
Jewish Thought. Customs and
Ceremonies, Jewish Music, and He-
Richard Siegel, the synagogue's
religious school director, and Can-
tor Irving Shulkes will share the
teaching with Rabbi Kingsley.
NCJW Cited For
National Programs
"For its massive voluntary ef-
forts for over 80 years ." reads
the Distinguished Service Award
presented to the National Council
of Jewish Women by the National
Conference on Social Welfare at
its recent Centennial Forum in
Atlantic City, N.J.
Mrs. Eleanor Marvin, NCJW na-
tional president, accepted the
award from Mrs. Alexander Rip-
ley, president of the NCSW.
Specifically cited during the of-
ficial presentation were the
NCWJ's nationally recognized
study "Windows on Day Care ]
published in 1972. and the cur- !
rent "Justice for Children" report
and action program being carried
on across the nation by its 100,000
volunteer members.
The National Council of Jewish
Women was the only organization
so honored by the Forum.
Jewish Community Leaders
Pledge Larger Gifts in '74
ican Jewish community leaders un-
animously committed themselves
to greater gifts to the 1974 United
Jewish Appeal at an earlier point
in the campaign than ever before,
Paul Zuckerman, UJA general
chairman, has announced.
The Jewish leaders, represent-
their commitments during a pri-
vate dinner meeting at the home
of Israel Ambassador Simcha Dinitz
here Aug. 29.
Their purpose, stated Zucker-
man, was to declare in a dramatic
manner the urgency of human-
itarian programs in Israel. These |
UJA-funded programs are de-
signed to aid the continuing influx
of Soviet Jewish immigrants and
to help immigrants of earlier
aliyahs who have not been able to
break the poverty barrier.
"I am delighted that the leaders
of the American Jewish community
have once more reaffirmed their
unwavering support of the hu-
manitarian programs in Israel
which depend so heavily on the
partnerahip of the Jews of the
United States," said Ambassador
Dinitz, who reported on the status
of immigration to Israel and re-
viewed the social and economic
situation in his country.
"Even though we have just con-
cluded another record-breaking
campaign, the importance of the
tasks we have committed ourselves
to is so great that we cannot relax.
Jew ish families need our help, and
we must face the fact that the hu-
manitarian programs we support
must be funded in 1974," Zucker-
man declared.
"Every day new arrivals enter
Israel. They have shown unbeliev-
able courage and determination in
getting out of the Soviet Union.
They are seeking a life for them-
selves and their families as Jews,
and in freedom. And they depend
on us to make this possible," the
UJA general chairman said.

American Fancies To Experience
SoYief Immigration, Resettlement
NEW YORK The United Jew-
ish Appeal, in conjunction with
tho Jewish Agency in Israel, has
begun a special program to en-
able American Jewish families to
experience directly the immigra-
tion and resettlement processes of
Soviet Jews seeking new lives in
Israel. Paul Zuckerman. UJA gen-
jieral chairman announced.
"Participating I ami lies will share
at first-hand with Russian Immi-
grants the inspiration of initial re-
ception at Vienna, the flight to Is-
rael, and the very real problems
which occur during the difficult
period of early abcorption in a
new society," Mr. Zuckerman ex-
"We hape that the families will
grasp the meaning of this historic
immigration in all its complexity
the dislocations, the anxieties,
the hope, the achievements and
problems as well as the emotional
stress and financial cost. We want
them to bring thai understanding
back with them and communicate !
jt dramatically to their com-
munities," Mr. Zuckerman said.
One of the major problems in
the UJA campaign is to interpret
the culture shock of moving from
one society to another and parti-
cularlyas in the case of Russian
Jewsleaving a closed, repressive
state for a free, democratic one.
In order to help cieate such an
, understanding, and have it spread
throughout the American Jewish
community, families arc being
selected to "live in" with Russian
Jewish families from the first
moment of their step into freedom
in Vienna as they arrive from Rus-
sia through to a point in Israel
when the absorption process is
well under way.
Families to participate in the
week-long programs are being
selected by Federations and Wel-
fare Funds throughout the coun-
try on the basis of community lead-
ership and the ability to under-
stand and express the human rela-
tionships they will encounter.
Each family experience will in-
clude living through the day-to-day
experience of arriving immigrants
from the Soviet Union, as well as
stays in absorption centers, and
visits to Ulpanim, job retraining
centers and places of employment
and homes ot recently arrived im-
The first two families selected
for this special program departed
for Vienna during the last week in
August and the first week in Sep-
tember. They were Ralph and Fran
ces Stein and their children. Ron-
ald and Sharon, of Morristown.
N.J.: and Milton and Harriet Perl-
mutter and their children. Frank.
Genesia and David of Newark.
Admit KLM Pays
Ransom, Dutch Told
Dutch government was urged on
Aug. 30 to answer accusations ap-
pearing in the Jerusalem Post that
Dutch airline KLM pays ransom
fooney to Arab terrorist groups to
revent the hijacking of its planes.
The demand was made in Par-
iament by a member of the
"Democrats 1906" Party, Johan
Imkav. who asked Dutch Foreign
Affairs and Justice Ministers to
"declare whether there is any
truth to the report."
KLM ON Aug. 29 vigrously de-
nied any such payment, and said
that the report "coincides with the
Israeli government's offensive
against the International Civil

(In Paris, the French govern-
ment controlled airline. Air
France, issued a communique in
which it "formally denied the al-
legations of certain Israeli news-
papers that it paid ranso.-n money
to Palestinian organizations to pre-
vent the hijacking of its planes")
MEANWHILE spokesmen for
Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, and
the British BOAC denied they
ever made payments to Arab ter-
rorist organizations.
In Vienna, the newspaper Newue
Zeit, said on Aug. 29 that Europ-
ean airlines have shown a "real
I sense lor business" if they really
did pay millions of dollars to pro-
I tect their planes against hijack-
ing. Although these payments have
; a tang of immorality, they are at
least one way to protect innocent
passengers, the newspaper said.
The payments, moreover, would
explain the sharp attitude of Arab
terrorist organizations against ac-
tions of single fanatics, because
hijackers by "Palestine lone-wolfs"
would bring the "Arab liberation
movements" into discredit as "sin-
cere business partners."

on that occasion because "one of
the major psychological dynamics
in Nixon's life is his high level
of worry about death" resulting
from his relationships with his
brothers as a boy his two

reminded him of how lucky he

which Nixon himself referred in
New Orleans, where he drew an
embarrassingly revealing parallel
between his own emotional con- '
dition and the Duke of Welling-
ton, who suffered a seizure of
melancholia after defeating Na-
poleon at Waterloo.
Common to them too are the
conflicting signals thai have char-
acterized his life emotionally and
peated determination to make
peace with the press that "mis-
represents" him, with "errant stu-
dents who maliciously accuse him
of anti-democratic elitism, with a

his inevitable lecturing down to

rationalizes the excesses of Wa-

THAT BOTH Legh and Mazlish
are right about Nixon's condition

own book. "My Six Crises," in |.
which he is frank to describe his
wide emitional swings ranging t
from exhilaration to depression

that indicts him almost beyond
the point of salvation.
One would think that these con-
siderations should have been
enough to discourage Nixon sup-
porters from crowing over the
Eagleton disaster following the
Democratic convention a year ago.
The likelihood is that their
Democratic opponents simply
didn't know enough either about
the Hutschnecker episode in par-
ticular or Mr. Nixon's general in-
clinations toward depression to ,
make political hay of it.
But does all this say that Legh,
Mazlish and, ultimately, Hutsch-
Becker are right in urging psy-

Why is it that Jews are not
permitted to eat bees and yet
they eat honey that comes from
the bees?
A number of answers are given
in rabbinical literature. Kir-t it
is claimed that the bees actuali>
do not make the honey. They sim-
ply collect the material from one
>Ource and deposit it elsewhere.
Second, even if they do process
the honey in some way, it is
claimed that the product is not a
part of the bee. Some authorities
assume that honey is permitted
because the land of Israel is de-
scribed as a land of "milk and
honey." This last point is not

Hebrew's Not So Hard to learn
T A SYMPOSIUM held' in 3fftisaT?rM- a few
weeks ago. attended by Jewish writers and
tist from America, Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg,
president of the American Jewish Congress,
iarned that the lack of a common language,
between American Jews and Israel posed a
kreat barrier to understanding.
But why can't American Jews learn a little
Hebrew? To be sure, learning Hebrew is not
supposed to be easy. There is the story of Eddie
[Cantor years back of the Jew who sent his child
in eheder to learn Hebrew.
SIX MONTHS later, he found all the time
tthc kid was being taught the kaddish. "Why do
von spend all the time teaching him kaddish?"
he parents asked mclamed. "1 am not getting
Ii-i ady to die.'" "You should live so long until he
fccarns it." said the mclamed.
But learning Hebrew is not as difficult as
II that. A while back. Edmund Wilson, one of
m top intellectual writers of this country, died.
fie was not1 a Jew. IfcUook up the study of H-
brew late in life in order to help study the Dead
Sea Scrolls.
What Edmund Wilson had was a strong mo-
tivation. He was eager to study the scrolls, so
he learned. When you really want to learn some-
thing, study changes from hardship to pleasure.
That is the principal thing needed in learning a
language or anything. When we have passion,
we shall learn. One doesn't need genius or a
high I.Q. One needs a high P.Q. (passion quo-
IN ISRAEL, there is also a simple method
of learning Hebrew. Get around. Don't be a
recluse. Meet people. Ask them their names. Vou
meet the Prime Minister. Ask her her name. She
will tell you it's Meir. Look in your little diction-
iry and you will see Meir means shine. Meet Mr.
Allon. His name means oak tree. Meet Dayan
and you have the word for judge.
Whit could be simpler?

How a Stubborn Visionary
Proved (he Experts Were Wrong
f\ evert vJ5cc7i/
Putting Halt to Parochial Funds
ORTLY AFTER the Supreme
Court declared unconstitu-
il Pennsylvania and New
k laws helping to keep paro-
1 schools alive, the director
s:>eclal projects for the Na-
Catholic Education As on. Father Frank H. Brede-
made a perceptive comment.
"Ultimately our schools depend
on the will and ability of the
parents to support them." he
-rDespite maneuvers by Gov.
Rockefeller, pledges by President
Nixon, recommendations of a
awfully selected Presidential
Scho.d Finance Commission; de-
spite the assiduous lobbying ef-
forts of Catholic and Jewish pro-
ponents of government aid for
private schools, the candle of
hope for such financial assistance
has now been pretty well snuffed
f THUS FAR, Father Bredewig
and perhaps i handful of other
educators and political leaders
trying to get tax money for re-
ligious schools seem to b" the
only persons grasping the deeply
ingrained sentiment about this
volatile issue. We cannot have
religious freedom in this land
piling from liberty and. at the
Mmi time take funds from tax-
payers to provide sectarian indoc-
trination for on'.-, two or a dozen
religious groups.
Speaking for himself and five
of the other nine Supreme Court
justices, Judge Lewis F. Powell
Jr.. in his opinion striking down
the New York plan of mainten-
ance for parochial schools and
the Pennsylvania program reim-
bursing parents of parochial
schools for a part of t!ie tuition
costs, said:
"The state has singled out a
class of its citizens for a special
economic benefit. Whether that
benefit be viewed as a simple
tuition sub-idy, as an incentive
to parents to send their children
to sectarian schools, or a reward
for having done so, at bottom
its intended consequence is to
preserve and support religion-
oriented institutions."
THIS TIME, it is not a Warren
court that may be maligned and
cursed for upholding often-as-
sailed constitutional guarantees.
And even though Chief Justice
Burger dissented (along with a
Kennedy-appointee. Judge Byron
R. White, and the most recently
appointed jurist, Judge William
H. Rehnquist) the willingness of
a Nixon apointee, Judge Harry
A. B'ackman. to go along with
the Powell decision, dramatizes
the independence of thought at-
tending the deliberations and
makes it hard for foes of liberal
jurists to pinpoint their criticism.
There have been cogent rea-
sons for parochial schools to
exist in the United States sine"
1814. There are powerful points
to be made for private Jewish
schools to flourish. But these
separate units of learning appear
certain now to find no financial
relief in the taxpayer's dollar.
Tax deductions for parents of
such schools, tax rebate propos-
als, a variety of voucher plans
all these and related schemes
will henceforth find the going
slow if not impossible.
This comes at a time when the
Jewish day school movement in-
tensifies. The financial burden is
|T WAS just 20 years ago, in
1 August. 1953. that the first
successful harvest of cotton be-
gan at an experimental farm in
the Bet Shean Valley of Israel.
Behind this simple historical fact
is one of Israel's most exciting
success stories.
In the early days of Jewish
colonization some of the settlers
tried planting cotton. They were
unskilled at it. suffered from
crop pests, and did not have
enough water. Out of their fail-
ure came the axiom: cotton could
not be grown successfully in
IMMEDIATELY after inde-
pendence, Israel was visited by
Sam Hamburg, a plantation
owner who had made a success
growing cotton in California. He
was impressed with the possibili-
ties. The climate was the same
as in Suithern California. Even
the soil was similar, he insisted.
His recommendations were ig-
nored however. The experts knew
that cotton could not be grown.
Had it not been tried?
Hamburg begged for a small
area of land on which he could
conduct an experimental plant
ing at his own risk, and he was
given about 12 acres in the Jor-
dan Valley. He named it Havat
Shmuel Samuel Farm. He
brought his own seeds from Cali-
fornia and tried six varieties.
The first crop was due in 1951.
but it was totally destroyed by
the boll worm.
Stubbornly he tried again the
following year, and with the sup-
port of the Ministry of Agricul-
ture demonstrated that the crop
could grow in this country- Since
ancient records had reported cot-
ton in Palestine in ancient times,
it was no joke to say that for
the first time in 2.000 years Jew-
ish farmers were successfully
growing cotton in the Holy Land.
The "experts" learned their les-
son, and took over. Acreage was
increased annually. By 1957
12,000 acres were under cultiva-
tion. It was found that cotton
could be grown under almost any
conditions. It grows well in ev-
ery part of the country, north and
south. It is grown under condi-
tions of irrigation, but some
strains are successful even with-
out irrigation. There have been
further pest attacks, but they
have been beaten back.
TODAY MORE than 100,000
acres are devoted to cotton, and
the most modern cotton picking
and ginning methods are used.
Practically all of the fibers used
in Israel's flourishing textile in-
dustry are grown within the coun-
try, and there is enough left for
export as well. Some foreign tex-
tile plants prefer it to the Egyp-
tian long staple cotton.
It's an old .-tory in Israel. The
experts said it couldn't be done,
but some crazy guy insists on
proving the experts wrong. There
are a couple of such mad men
i.i the country now trying to grow
coffee. The experts say they
don't have a chance but they're
trying anyhow.
Kramer Wins Grand Prize for Film c
STANLEY KRAMER has returned from the
Soviet Union after receiving the Grand Prize
at the eighth Moscow film festival for his pro-
duction of "Oklahoma Crude," termed by the
Soviet critics as a symbol of the struggle of the
individual against international capitalism. This
is the first time that an American film was hon-
ored with a prize at the Moscow competition.
Kramer himself previously attended twice as a
guest and juror.
"Oklahoma Crude" is a non-controversial love
;tory of two down-to-earth, hardbitten characters
entwined in wild-catting oil exploitation on the
eve of World War I.
THE THEME is singular and simple, but
the story of 31-year-old Marc Norman, developed
by the author and director with relentless power,
utterly brutal and frank, leaves the audience with
two unforgettable performances by Faye Duna-
way and George C. Scott in earthly Rabelaisian
horseplay for the supremacy of sexes.
Pitted against the larger-than-life portrayals
of the unlikely couple is British thespian John
Mills as the girl's gentle, all-too-tender father
protecting the shrew against her obstinacy and
irrational outbursts of anger and finally paying
for her with his life.
Kramer previously has been the recipient of
the Irving Thalberg Award. He has netted more
than 100 "Oscar" nominations, including three
each for The Defiant Ones," "Judgment at Nur-
emberg" and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner."
but never has won the coveted Academy Award.
Maxime Rodinson Jewish Marxist With the Heart of a Fedayeen

ulAXIME RODINSON and his publishers proclaim
the fact that he is a Jew. We cannot refute that
Statement. We recall at Villar's plea that although he
could defend himself from his enemies, he required
aid to protect himself from his friends. Rodinson is
the author of "Israel a Colonial Settler State?" (Monad
Press. S1.75 120 pp.. of which 25 are an introduction
hy a Peter Bitch).
~f An earlier book by Rrvdinson. "Israel and the
\ Arabs." had been reviewed by me for the Miami Her-
f aid in 1969. I reported in that review that this French
! Jew. in the 1950s, had justified the Prague trials of
j. alleged Israeli spies and Stalin's anti-Jewish cam
!< paigns. He had also been a teacher in a Moslem high
j school in Lebanon, an official in Syria, and an avowed
| Communist. He was a member of the French Comnui-
liist Party until 1958. but now "is an independent Marx-
ist scholar and writer."
IN HIS latest tirade against Zionism and Israel.
-he quotes men such as Gamal Abdul Nasser, a Leba-
nese Comnumi-t, and other Arabs for proof that Israel
in tin
is imperial!*4 and is part of a worldwide Imperialist
system. For the French Marxist, facts have as much
importance as they did for Goebbels and Streicher. He
He writes that Ahad Ha'am "wanted only to form
a 'spiritual center' in Palestine He states that Herri
converted. He calls Palestine "Arab lands," although
Palestine had belonged to the Ottoman Empire, and
Turks are not Arabs. Although he admits that prior
to 1948. Jewish lands were purchased legitimately,
often at excessive prices, he never admits that 80 per
cent of the land that passed to Israel under the UN
Resolution of Partition were public lands which never
belonged to any Arab or individual.
He blithely ignores the facts that Jews lived in
Palestine uninterruptedly ever since 135 CE. and that
for the past 150 years, according to the Encyclopedia
Brittanica and other non-Jewish sources, the Jews
were the largest segment of the population of Jeru-
THE SEMANTICISM of a Marxian is revealed in
the following: "There is no such thing as colonialism
and imperialian as such. What there is is a series of
social phenomena in which numerous analogies with
one another can be found, but also infinite nuances,
and which have come to be referred to labels.
Knowing the man, one can readily comprehend
why a pro-Arab Communist smears Israel as does
Ca,tro when he calls the U.S.A. by the same names,
lack Luria wrote that Rodinson "thinks in categories
like colonialist, racialist, imperialist, socialist, and
Third World." Luria labeled Rodinson as "A Jewish
Marxist with the heart of a fedayeen."
