Her Tears Greeted Dr. Kissinger's
Report on 65 Prisoners of War
JERUSALEM (JTA) Pre-
mier Golda Mcir announced on
television Feb. 27 that out of 80
Israeli soldiers missing on the
Syrian front, 65 were named as
prisoners of war on the list that
the U.S. Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger brought from Damas-
cus on Feb. 27.
She said 62 of the POWs are
Israeli soldiers and three are
"Arab citizens" of towel. A later
The 18 Israeli soldiers not
named are still listed as missing.
MRS. MEIK said there was evi-
dence that some of the missing
men were killed in combat and
pledged that efforts will be made
to determine the fate of the rest.
In the meantime, she said, the
army has informed the families
of the POWs and the missing men
of their fate.
"The people of Israel lived with
deep concern for the fate of the |
POWs from the moment it was,
informed of their captivity until!
the message that they were alive,"
Mrs. Meir said.
"However, the joy was mixed
with sorrow," she added. "We all
participate in the agony of those
families whose sons are not on
the POW list."

Catholic Prelate Backs
Jerusalem as Capital
TORONTO (JTA Archbishop Philip Pocock, Roman
Catholic Archbishop of Toronto, urged the acceptance of Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel in which places that are sacred to
defferent religions should be guaranteed as open to anyone.
The leader of the Roman Catholics here told a dinner audi-
ence of 400 at Beth Sholom Synagogue several days ago. "Wo
should rejoice that after so many hundreds of years of exile
the Jewish people have at last found a homeland."
BUT HE added, "We must have in our hearts a deep svm-
pathetic understanding of displaced Arabs and of all refugees."
Pocock, who was guest speaker at the dinner to launch
Brotherhood Week sponsored by the Canadian Council of Chris-
tians and Jews, stated that he was not speaking as the archbishop
but as a "Christian man."

30 Jewish Activists Planning
Protest Rounded Up By KGB
By FRAN NEVTN9
A group of Soviet Jewish ac-
tivi U told western reporters last
week that Moscow security police
(KGB) had rounded up 30 Jews
who were en route to the Com-
munist Party's Central Committee
building to protest a drop in the
rate of Soviet Jewish emigration
for the first two months of 1974.
The Jews, who were carrving a
petition protesting the 20 per cent
emigration decline, were detained
outside their homes March 1. oth-
er Jews who had no connection
with the petition and planned pro-
test, but were on their way to
shop, were also picked up. it" was
The lightning KGB action was
cojidinated with the early March
detention of aoproximately 40 oth-
er Jtwish activists from all over
the USSR. The KGB has not an-
nounced whether those detained
will be charged.
Jewish sources said the deten-
tions followed months of intensive
harassment by the secret police
which included cutting off tele-
phones, intercepting mail, and
making preventive arrests.
The Soviet Jews detained were
about to demonstrate against a
drop in emigration to Israel be-
cause during the first two months
of 1973. seme 5,000 Jews were per-
mitted to leave the USSR for Is-
rael but during January and Feb-
ruary of 1974, the figure

The Meaning of Purim
We celebrate Purim this week. The holiday begins
with the reading of the Megillah, the story of Esther (Thurs-
day evening) and continues Friday.
The two-day festival is as a result of the historical turn
of events that Purim was observed in Hasmonean times as
the Day of Mordecai on the 14th of Adar. (II Mace. 15:36).
But the Jews of Shushan celebrated their deliverance
from the tyrant Haman on the 15th of Adar as chronicled
in Esther 9:18.
In the context of the Jewish calendar of festivals, Purim
is only a minor holiday, but Jews throughout the world cele-
brate it joyously as a symbol of God's protection of Israel.
Repeatedly, the holiday takes on added significance,
perhaps because throughout our history there always seems
to be a Haman lurking on the horizon ready to deal Jews
and their faith the ultimate death blow.
In our own time there is the Kremlin. And there is the
Arab enmity as demonstrated by the treachery of the Yom
Kippur War and King Faisal's virulent anti-Semitism.
All of this comes but a generation after perhaps the
greatest of the tyrants, Adolf Hitler, who succeeded in ex-
terminating fully one-third of World Jewry.
Purim refers to "puru," or "lots," which Haman cast in
order to determine the month in which his destruction of
the Jews was to take place.
The holiday is celebrated by the eating of sweets and
ths giving of money to the poor to demonstrate our grati-
tude that repeatedly, we have been saved from the jaws
There is nothing in our experience these days to dem-
onstrate that Purim has lost any of its urgent and symbolic
meaning for ub. # I i t
Troubled Political Waters
What amounted to Golda Meir's resignation Sunday
and then her renewed attempt to create a working coalition
government is a measure of the troubled political waters
in which Israel finds herself in the wake of the Yom Kippur
War and the Dec. 31 national elections.
Both the war and the elections seem to have been "in-
conclusive" in the sense that Israel's victory was not a
clear mandate to dictate terms of peace. On the contrary,
she has been required to make most if not all of the
concessions, and still there is no peace.
As for the elections, Mrs. Meir's inability to put to-
gether a government has been the result of strife in her
own Labor Party; opportunism on the part of the Religious
Party whose price for participation neither Mrs. Meir nor
most anyone else has been willing to pay; and her determi-
nation, perhaps misplaced, to keep the increasingly suc-
cessful Likud opposition from assuming an active role in
What the resolution of this political stalemate will
bring is hard to predict: a "caretaker" government until
new and more conclusive elections can be held, giving in
to Religious Party demands, offering Likud the active role
it seeks as Defense Minister Moshe Dayan has made a
prerequisite to his return to the cabinet?
This is a particularly trying time for Israel a time
made doubly hard by the bitter aftermath of the war.
Another Voice Heard
The Near East Report makes an excellent point. In
1972, Sen. James Abourezk (D., S. Dak.) emphasized his
Lebanese extraction and offered himself as a perfect middle

Buckley's Voice Turns Strident

F. Buckley's massive financial ties I
to rck music radio stations.
In general, rock radio stations j
are more than just noisy enter- |
tainers of teen-age blocks of wood j
who have not yet discovered that |
they were disgorged from the ]
womb at birth who do not yet
see a difference getween where
they once were prenatally and
where they now are postpartum.
IT IS no secret that rock radio
stations are in the very center of
a recording financial empire that
molds musical "taste" of the de-
fenseless young according to its
own best interests, purveys drugs
and establishes social values
dreamed up by Goebbels types
who run around in the guise of
Artists and Repertoire men.
It is also no secret that Mr.
Buckley, who has never so much
as said boo about this filthy indus-
try, makes a heap of cash from
his ties to it.
SINCE READING that report
I have found it nothing less than
astonishing that he should be so
quiet about it when, otherwise,
he is always lacing into one de
cadent American phenomenon or
another in the preachy tones of
his Yale prophetese.
Still, I maintain a healthy re
gard and even a genuine admira
tion for Mr. Buckley, if not al
ways because of what he says,
then primarily for how he says it
It is true that sometimes hi
subordinate clauses ramble or

Someone must assure us that

NEW YORK In the spreading strain of political kidnappings,
one notes that in this area the United States is not leader but follower.
The Hearst kidnapping is modeled both on the Tupamaro ultraleft
operations of Latin American urban guerrillas and the Habash-led radi-
cal Arab terorists.
The Reg Murphy kidnapping in Atlanta is a lesser right-wing off-
shoot of the same infection.
THE VIRUS of political fanaticism travels in both directions, left
ind right. The disease they have in common is the use of the media,
both as target and vehicle, for what is in essence propaganda by terror.
The striking thing about the Hearst kidnapping was its sophisti-
cated tactic. The daughter of a wealthy, famous publishing family,
California based but national in its media scope, is seized in a dra-
natic swoop. Tupamaro-style, involving stolen cars, gunplay and vio-
There follow protracted "negotiations." in the form of taped pleas
'o her family by the girl, along with military communiques by the
leader of the kidnapping band.
NOTE THE grandiose character of the whole thing. All political
-evolutionaries since Giuseppe Garibaldi have seen themselves as in
>ne sense or another, field marshals and heads of state.
The man signing himself "Cinque" in the Hearst case is no excep-
tion. His language is military, as if to say that this is no kidnapping
for profit, or ^ fly-by-night, bumbling individual operation, but part
)f a self-conscious political movement which sets itself up as a military

Both the hnguage and intent are grandiose. So are the sums In-
olved in the "goodwill" demands. So is the name of the organization
-the Svmhinnese Liberation Army.
THE ROBIN Hood aspect is more interesting. By asking for a huso
sum to be spent in welfare distribution scaled down from the
original hundreds of millions to $6 million, but still large-the kid-
napers' aim is to dramatize their humanitarian concern and thus sain
sympathy and recruits for their cause.
This theatric media role is one of holding up the rich to give their
booty to the poor. There is a certain appeal to this, especially for the
naive and unwary among the discontented, even among the comfortable

lovely Spanish lady and children's

Vihiifi read that some building*
were refusing the JWF the right
to sclicit help for our needy com-
munity programs and the ab orp-
tion of immigrant, to Israel from
Rus.'ia and other unfriendly coun-
tries, I-was saddened and shocked.
I remembeied reading the his-
tory of the JewLh war 70 A.D.
when Jerusalem was destroyed by
the Romans and in order to defray
part of t;ie expense of the war,
the Romans soid into slavery
thousands of men, women, boys
and girls to the Greek slave trad-
In Alexandria the Jewi.h com-
niu-i:y in.,;ant!y, when learning of
this tragic event, organized and

EDITORS NOTE: In the Mar. 1

Perry opined that "this is no
time to belittle the efforts of
P'-esident Nixon and his Sec
Kusher, recording secretary.
Elected to the board of gover-

Michael Einhorn, Sydney Holtz-

The following remain on the
board for two years: Dr. Howard

publish Mr. Perry's opinion, as
we are Mr. Pollock's, althoueh
we are inc'ined to wonder just
what "Jewish service" a per-

The Premier expressed thank",
to Kissinscr for his efforts to ob-
tain the POW list and to arrange
for an exchange of prisoners. She
said that Israel is Dreoared to ex
change the Syrian POWs it holds
in exchange ror Israel POWs at
"any moment." She also express-
ed Israel's willingness to do its
utmost for a disengagement agree
nient on the Syrian front.
FOLLOWING THE television

same announcement over the
State Radio. Her speech was fol-
lowed by an army spokesman
who read the full names of the
62 POWs and the three civilian
guardsmen. The names were read
&i an alphabetical order, making
people in too many Israeli houses
hold their breath in a prayer that
their relatives are on the list.

Life and the worid around us never remains static. Constant
changes force us to adapt and readapt to new situations. When we
feel most secure we're possibly heading for a trauma.
During a time of prosperity, as it reaches a peak, we can almost
be sore that a recession will follow. How often does the bubble burst
just as we are feelins happy and content? The manner in which we
adjust to these situations is a measure of our maturity.
How secure and prosperous was Israel becoming before Yom
Kippur? There was fu-1 employment, great capital investment in the
Stats, increased tourism, and for the first time in its history, the people
had a feeling that all was well.
Then came that fateful day!!!
Now, five and a half months Inter, there is dissension, the govern-
ment is without power because it lacks a majority, inflation has caused
economic hardship. 300.600 men are no longer productive because the:
must serve in the army, and the country and its people are melan-
Israel survived the Yom Kippur War geographically, politically,
and physically, but great wounds remain wounds that hopefully
can be hea;ed in time with proper care and treatment.
When one falls ill, sometimes more important than the medication,
is a show of affection and attention by others, As Jews, this is our
task. We have an obligation to aid and assist our people. We now have
th? orportunity during the height of our campaign to give most gen-
erously financially and help in '.his humanitarian cause. It now be-
comes an obligation to vi-it Israel as a way of showing our feelings and
support for our people. We must give thorn the feeling of our oneness
and love. We must not allow the suffering of feeling alone and out-
cast- in the word.
Now as in no other time, we must feel the need to h"ln and we
can tranmit this feeling by giving generously and by understanding
.in I what transpires in lime of sorrow.
Our Jewish brothers today weep for their dead. We must give
them the will and encouragement to redevelop and rebuild.
That is how I see it.

As promised, here is a report
on Greater Hollywood area Jewish j
vouth organizations. United Syna-1
cogue Youth (USY) is the na- ]
tional conseivative Jewish youth !
or"anization. The aim of the USY
program is to bring about a mean-
ingful and fully reciprocal en-
counter of Judaism, the Jewish
people, and the Synagogue on one
side, and the Jewish teenager on
As a result of this encounter,
the Jewish teenager will experi-
ence the Jewish way of living
through study, action and fellow-
hip, leading to personal fulfill-
ment and growth while meeting
his/her spiritual and social needs.
Secondly, a significant contribu-
tion to the synagogue, community,
society and the Jewish people is
The major concepts of USY are:
1) Living as a Jew 2) Developing
H strong and lasting attachment to
the Jewish People and the State
of Israel 3) Developing a deeper
sense of loyalty to the synagogue
1) Experiencing the Mitzvot (Com-
mandments) 5) Study 6) Pre-
pa.ing for positive Jewish living
in college and fortifying moral
jnd religious faith during those
years away from home. There are
many sub-concepts under these ti-
USY is an excellent opportunity
for Jewish youth to learn Judaism
whether it be in formal Judaical
.asses, at conventions, weekend
retreats, or whatever. It is an op-
portunity to live as a Jew. USY
offers the greatest opportunity for
eenageis to share many social
.ictivities and experiences.
A weekend rarely goes by with-
out at least one South Florida area
USY group having a dance, movie
night, weekend retreat, coffee
house, or other varied programs.
Contiary to some thinking, ail
USY programs are not Jewish irj
content, but offer the oportunity
to be with other Jewish kids.
There are two Hollywood syna-
gogues which have USY programs:
Temple Beth Shalom. 4601 Arthur
St.. and Temple Sinai. 1201 John-
Both offer USY programs begin-
ning with Kadima for 5th and 6th
graders, Junior USY for 7th. 8th
and 9th graders, and Senior USY
fcr 10th, 11th and 12th graders. If
you a.e interested in joining
either group, you may contact
Youth Directors Mrs. Karl (Shir-
ley) Cohen at Beth Shalom or Mar-
tin Listowsky at Temple Sinai,
at Temple Sinai at 923-1577.
You may also write United Syn-
agogue Youth. 218 East 70th St..

brochures which include- "USY I
Aims and Objectives."

Golda Had Hard Time Putting it Together
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Pre-

work here trying to form a
minority government which most
political pundits believe would
not last out a four-year term and
may in fact collapse within a few
I months, necessitating new elec-
Mrs. Meir hoped to present her
cabinet to President Ephraim
Katzir and then to the Knesset
A KNESSET vote of confidence
was not at all certain and lack
of it would bring down the new
government before it got started.
The Premier's most immediate
problems lie within her own
Labor alignment. She also had
to bargain with the Independent
Liberal Party which, after the
National Religious Party's defec-
tion last week, became her chief
coalition partner. The ILP was
expected to receive two port-
folios against the single one held
by Tourism Minister Moshe Kol
in the outgoing government.
The Premier apparently still
hoped to persuade Defense Minis-
ter Moshe Dayan and Transport
Minister Shimon Peres, leaders of
the ex-Rafi faction, to participate
in her new cabinet.
BUT THE chances that they
would reconsider their decision
not to serve dwindled. At a meet-
ing of the party's Central Com-
mittee, many Rafi supporters
argued that their faction should
abstain in the Knesset vote of
confidence in the new govern-
ment and force new elections.
The NRP was also expected to
decide whether to abstain as one
of its leaders. Yitzhak Rafael,

confidence in the government as

coalition, raising the govern-
ment's 58 Knesset votes to 61, a
majority of one.
Mrs. Meir refused on the
grounds that to include the
vehemently secular Mrs. Aloni
in her cabinet would foreclose
any chances of the NRP's joining.
Political observers were quick to
point out that Mrs. Meir also
harbored an intense personal
dislike for the outspoken Mrs.

Ties With Israel
UNITED NATIONS (WUP)
Sana Hassan, daughter of Mah-
moud Hassan, a former Ambassa-
dor to the U.S., has presented a
comprehensive plan for an Egyp-
tian-Israeli peace in a manner
which favors neither the Egyp-
tians nor the Israelis.
Miss Hassan's blueprint, ap-
pearing in the form of a detailed
feature article published under
the title. "An Egyptian's Vision
of Peace," in the Feb. 10 issue of
the New York Times Magazine
has created much interest among
officials and delegates here at
the UN especially so since it
is an Egyptian Ph.D. candidate in
the government department at
Harvard who is the seemingly im-
partial author of the blueprint.
"THE DISENGAGEMENT aft
er tthe October war." says Miss
Hassan, "has brought us for the
first time to the threshold of a
lasting peace. Yet everything de-
pends on whether we seize the
chance now, or, as we did after
167, wake up to the realization
that we missed that elusive op-
portunity There is no doubt
that the problems of working out
a viable peace exist. But they are
not insurmountable, nor should
they prove very formidable for
the Jewish people who have had
the courage, initiative and crea-
tive imagination to transform the
State of Israel from dream to
Miss Hassan poses a number of
questions. For example, she asks:
"How can the average Egyptian,
who has never set eyes on an
Israeli and is filled with distrust,
fear and hatred, be expected to
have a change of heart before
learning from his own experience
with Israelis that good relations
"Likewise, how can an average
Israeli, who has been fed images
of a hostile Arab eager to push
him into the sea, change his prej-
udices before he has through
tourism, commerce, joint work
projects been given an oppor-
tunity to interact with Arabs?"
COMMENTING ON these ques
tions, Miss Hassan concludes "that
good relations are possible." This,
she stresses, "has been demon-
strated by the bridge between
Jordan and Israel which is open
thanks to the courageous initia-
tive of Moshe Dayan, and by his
friendly, if fleeting, contacts be-
tween Israeli and Egyptian sol-
diers on the front lines after the
As to the honest feelings of
many Egyptians, Miss Hassan
cites one of Egypt's foremost
novelists and playwrights as hav-
ing written the following in an
essay circulated prior to the Oc
" 'But we are not satisfied with
two wars and two defeats, no, we

^HE QUESTION of whether
the "taiMl-Egypt disengage
he possible violation of the accord
ken) accord and particularly
will lead to unprecedented
lirect U.S. intervention in the
Jiocast has exercised not only
political observers in Washing-
on but political observers
ii i; i......r .....romi i '..
iroughcut the world and ob-
:vers in Jerusalem, too.
The question presents itself
iven if one accent's the declared
fOrition of U.S. Secretary of State
lenry A. Kissinge.- and the Nix-
bn Administration that the
B.S. far from seeking opportuni-
:es for intervention abroad is
bent on avoiding new overseas
SOME OBSERVERS feel that
the accord, born as it was out of
iissin-rerian diplomacy and ie-
plete a? it is with secret and
Bemi-secret undertakings and
agreement made by, to and
Ithrough the U.S., will willy-nilly
llead America into intervention
I perhaps not direct military in-
tervention but certainly unprece-
dented political and diplomatic
Here in Jerusalem, the accord
I is not seen in this way.
Obviously the war and its aft-
lermath and Kissinger's consistent
personal efforts have led to Is-
rael's much greater reliance on
the U.S. pehaps even sub-
servience to (this, only time will
tell) militarily, economically,
BUT THE disengagement with
Egyrt is not thought of as the
inevitable precursor of even more
massive U.S. penetration into Is-
rael's freedom of action and de-
The disengagement is thought
I of. above all. as a carefully con-
structed and balanced testing
ground of Egypt's intentions
and hence of Israel's future poli-
(cles and reactions, and thus ulti-
mately of the chances of full
peace being eventually a'tained.
When all Israel's leaders stress
roreatedlv that the diceneaee-
ment accord will be proven by
its execution, these are not mere
idle words designed to gain time
| or win over public opinion.
THEY EXPLAIN the basic aim
[that Israel had in a-rreeing to
[the substantial withdrawal in*
lv-'ved. and the cession of Egyrt
[of important politico-military ad-
[vant:>aos such as the sieee of
the Third Army and the control
[of the Suez Canal.
Obviouly Eevnt culd soon
I Tiolate the terms of the accord,
as she violated the 1970 stand-
ttii] eneinee-ed by Kissinger's
predecessor, William P. Rogers.
But for Israel, such a viola-
tion would not mean primarily
redoubled intervention of the
U.S. in the affairs of the region
j although this may well hap-
pen. (The U.S. would certainly
[be responsible for apportioning
[blame for the violation and Kis-
[ singer has said it would act ac-
fenrdin? to its findings on who
i was to blame.)
FOR ISRAEL. Egyptian viola-
tion would mean in simple
terms that Egypt does not in-
tend to reach full and lasting
peace, that it sought to achieve
the disengagement merely to ex-
tricate itelf from military dis-
comfort, that its ultimate aim
continues to be what Nasser said
it was: the eradication of the
Jewish State as a political entity
in the Mideast.

'Cruelty, Savagery' of Inquisition
'pHE MOST awesome institution of the Cath-
olic Church was the Holy Office of the In-
quisition. It exercised its all-powerful power in
the name of the Prince of Faith in order to
maintain a Church which Jesus did not found
and to attain a universal temporal-spiritual state
under the aegis of the Holy See.
The Holy Office had branches throughout
the Spani>h Empire and was not abolished in
Spain until 1834 although its demise in the New
World ended in the 1820s.
REV. JOHN A. O'Brien, author-in residence
at Notre Dame, comments on the "incredible
c uelty and savagery" of the Inquisition in his
book. "The Inquisition" (Macmillan Publishing
Co., $6.93, 23 pp.).
The inquisitors who brought "faith" to their
tasks were few. Catholicism honors as martyrs
those who clung to their faith and were thrown
to the lions. The Church, writes O'Brien, at-
tempted to accomplish through the inquisition
what the Roman Empire was unable to achieve
and was condemned for attempting.
The book does not exculpate the heinous
institution. Indeed, the author permitted his
.......iHM :.i IN it'll'.......il........ M*' Mi In, I,
moral indignation to surface when narrating tne
accounts of this blot on Church history.
THE ACCOUNT of the treatment of the
Jews is told forthrightly. There is no attempt to
whitewash, as did Henry Kamen and other "white

classic remark, "Holy Writ is intended to teach

Punishment for Hijackers Overdue
^ I'll.I. ANOTHER way to save fuel during the
energy emergency would be raising sanctions
ngainst nations taking in skyjackers. Think how
much precious petrol would stay in the barrel
if honorable airline operators and threatened
pilots would rise up at last and refuse to haul
passengers and freight into capital cities knuck-
ling under today's air pirates!
Those who have followed carefully, but in
mounting dismay, the activities of the skyborne
brigands now see the rulers of Kuwai* temporiz-
ing in the cases of the five Arab terrorists who
slew 31 innocents in Rome and another in Ath-
ens in the December outrages.
HIE KUWAIT action in defying Rome's re-
quest for extradition of the pirates constitutes
one more proof that sky travel will continue
hazardous while Arab government officials go on
giving the killers of travelers and the snatchers
of hostages time to let world opinion cool and
Beholding these acts of law lefiance, how
can Americans still on the fence wherein the
Middle East war potential Is concerned go on
heaping blame on Israel and misrepresenting
the Palestine refugee problem?
Clergymen who continue to issue appeals
on behalf of belligerent Arab nations must find
it difficult to relate their advocacy of justice to
their willingness to overlook the crimes com-
mitted by air terrorists.
A RECENT round-up by John Sibley of The
Times recorded two incidents in 1968, six in
1969, four in 1870, two in 1971, four in 1972. and
seven in 1973. Arab teirorists are obviously re-
sponsible in most of these escapades. Boasts by
the Palestine Liberation Organization usually
follow the attacks. And time after time, the per-
petrators of tht sorties e;cape punishment.
H is especially disheartening to recall that
the International Civil Aviation Organization,
meeting in Rome not long before the infamous
December murders, there voted to condemn Is-
rael for intercepting an Arab airliner in the
tense days before the Yom Kippur War, but
failed to speak out against Arabs who skyjack
As a specialized agency of the United Na-
tions, the International Civil Aviation Organiza-
tion cannot impose sanctions. But even in tak-
ing the step it did condemning Israel while
blinking Arab piracies the agency reflected
the biases we have come to expect from the UN.
THE UNITED States is in excellent position
to take the lead in efforts to curb skyjacking. It
is now almost a year and a half since any out-
law succeeded in snatching a plane in our coun-

NO CEASE FIRE
The Yom Kippur War has left a harvest of great human
distress in its wakesuffering and deprivation which can
only be alleviated with compassion, care and a massive
infusion of funds.
While the guns stay silent, the roar of unmet needs is
deafening. Programs for new immigrants...tools of learn-
ing for eager students...homes for deprived families...
services for the aged and infirm.
Already, fulfillment of these needs has been impaired.
Vital programs have been suspended for lack of support,
and others have yet to see the light of day.
Meanwhile, there are lives to be saved, built, rebuilt. For
the Israeli soldiers the fighting may be over. But for us,
it has barely begun.
