Transcript Of Brown's Interview
On April 12, 1976, Gen. George S. Brown, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was
interviewed by political cartoonist-writer Raanan R. Lurie. In the interview for King
Features Syndicate, Gen. Brown categorized Israel as a military "burden" to the United
States and also called Great Britain, longtime American ally, "pathetic."
Gen Brown's statements have since elicited a storm of international and national
protest reminiscent of his address at Duke University in 1974, when the General alleged
that the American news media and American banks are largely under Jewish control.
At the time. Brown also declared that American Jews exercise undue influence on the
Congress of the United States in behalf of Israel.
President Ford refused to dismiss Gen. Brown for his insulting remarks in 1974. Last
week the President again refused to do more than tap Gen. Brown on the wrist for what
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld later characterized as the Generars "inelegant
Herewith follows an official transcript of the interview:
Jewish Telegraphic Agency ob-
tained the transcript of Gen.
George S. Brown's interview
with Raanan Lurie. As released
by King Features Syndicate,
Brown's remarks are as follows:
Lurie: Speaking about the
Middle East, from a pure
military point of view, would you
say that from the American
strategic-global strategic in-
terests, militarily is Israel and
its forces more a burden or more
a blessing from a pure military
point of view to the United
Brown: Well, I think it's just
got to be considered a burden. I
had this same conversation with
(Sen. Jacob) Javits right after I
got in trouble down at Duke. We
had breakfast and we were
talking, and he said to me,
"Can't you see the great
strategic value of Israel to the
United States?" And I said,
"Frankly, no," which wasn't
what I was talking about at
Duke at all. But my concern
there is that they're a burden.
Now if the trends were reversed.

non and Israel and an in-depth
visit to a border development
Departing the North, the

as new settlements. This will be
followed by dinner and briefing
on Israel's defense needs with an
overnight in a kibbutz.
THE GROUP will depart the

Reaction of Participants
To see Israel is to re-dedicate oneself to the existence of the
Jewish homeland. During a recent mission to Israel, Jews from
throughout the United States gathered together to view the
current economic and social situation facing the country today.
Here are just a few of their comments during a dinner with
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin:
"I don't believe that peace in the Middle East is at hand. It is
not enough to find a bright diplomatic formula to bring about
peace. The establishment of the Jewish state after 2,000 years,
when no one realized that there would be such a State here, is
not just another political development. It's a political
development without any precedent in the history of mankind. I
believe that we have never been in a situation in which Jewish
partnership was needed the way it is needed today and in the
foreseeable future. And since I believe the Jews are an intelligent
people, they know what they are expected to do. And we hope
that, together, there will be no obstacle that we cannot over-
"Being a Jew brings a certain amount of sadness, a certain
amount of pain, but it gives a bonus that most other religions do
not have."
"As part of a resolution tonight, we called on Hillel, but we
only took one line. He said, 'if we weren't for ourselves, who
would be?' But it also says that 'if we are only for ourselves,
what are we?' Like everyone here, I can only but take great pride
in the achievements at Entebbe and of the 'Good Fence.' But to
take pride is very easy for anyone. However, before you can take
pride, you have the responsibility to share in the obligations of
Israel. To do that, you have to stretch your pledge."
"For me, to be a Jew is to maintain a sense of wonderment.
And sometimes that's difficult in the United States. But when
I'm in Israel, I'm enveloped with wonderment."
"Each of us will have our memories and thoughts of this
mission, but I believe that this is the mission and the spirit of
Entebbe. I believe that each of us is a link in the chain of Jewish
history. And I also hope that each of us will have the same hope
and courage to do everything we can to be the strongest possible
links in this chain." ____

organizations, prominent rabbis and guests. Ambassador Herzog
"We are gathered here in New York as others are gathered all
over the world not because of the unusual nature of this festival
but because of the profound significance it has for us. reflecting
as it does the essential civilization of our faith and the meaning
of Jewish life."
Under constant attack in the United Nations. Ambassador]
Herzog could not help comparing the goals and achievements of
Israel with those of his tormentors.
I think of what our civilization and our people stand for and
what our country has done under the most impossible con-
dictions. When I look at those countries and consider the
hundreds of millions of poverty-stricken human beings, the
millions in prison, in concentration camps, the lack of education,
the disease, the malnutrition, and I look at our small an from
the point of view of size insignificant little country, backed by
the Jewish people and all that we stand for in the world today,
consider the civilization that we have created, the pluralistic
society which, despite all its problems, is a model for most of the
world today. I am proud.
"I CONSIDER how we treated our refugees throughout the
ages, particularly over the past 30 years, with reference to what
the Joint Distribution Committee has done. I compare that with
the fate of half a million Arab refugees who are maintained by
public charity, particularly American charity, to this day. and
whose brethren have not got the time to rise from the gaming
tables of Las Vegas and Monte Carlo, where they are gambling
away billions of petrodollars, to look after their own people. I
realize what a civilized people we are. I realize what we represent
and I am proud."
Among the distinguished guests from Israel were Avraham
Harman, President of The Hebrew University and former
Ambassador from Israel to the United States, and Mrs. Harman.
Mr. Harman spoke of the association of three revered leaders of
the Joint Distribution Committee with The Hebrew University:
Paul Baerwald. JDC chairman from 1932 to 1940, for whom
the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work was named. The
Baerwald School, part of The Hebrew University and built by
the JDC. was the first social work school to be opened in Israel.
Mr. Harman said.
Moses A. Leavitt. for whom the library in the Paul Baerwald
School is named The library was also built by the JDC. Mr
Leavitt was Executive Vice Chairman of the JDC from 1947 to
1965. and before that was Secretary.
Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, chairman of the European Executive
Council from 1942 to 1950. the critical years of the Holocaust
and the years of rescue and rehabilitation. The Dr. Joseph J.
Schwartz Program, part of the Paul Baerwald School, provides,
graduate training for community center directors and senior
personnel. The program was started by the JDC which continues
to provide professional guidance and financial support.
Mr Robert Arnow, chairman of the New York UJA-
Federation Joint Campaign cited the importance of the current
campaigns of the United Jewish Appeal and -urged greater
support. The UJA provides the bulk of JDC's annual budget
which this year will exceed $35 million.

I STRONGLY doubt that
Jimmy Carter reads Leo Min
dlin's column not regularly,
anyhow. But Carter seems to
have taken notice of last week's
thesis as I believe many of us
did that "If there's an issue in
the November election it is tone
. ." and made one of the moat
telling points of the campaign
when he cited his selection of
Walter Mondale as his running-
mate as an example of the kind of
people he woould choose for his
Gerald Ford's image as
President, his failure to grasp the
larger issues of our time, is
probably best-described by
veteran Washington reporter
Richard Rovere in a recent
Commentary piece: "But being
an American conservative today
seems to mean that one takes
seriously the pretensions of
Reagan and President Ford, men
I find mean-spirited, narrow-
minded, often downright
THE MAN Ford chose, with
due deliberation, to be his suc-
cessor as President of the United
States in the event of eath or
disablement, is far better
qualified to serve as an alderman
in Chicago's 39th ward.
But Robert Dole is only one
example of Ford's insensitivity.
Not just insensitive to the un-
employment rate, to the quality
of our environment, to the health
needs of the nation and par-
ticularly our older people.
His failure to take action
against Earl Butz for his crude,
racist statements the one
which led to his resignation was
not the first time by any means
is an illustration of that. His
defense of Gen. Brown is another
example of his failure to grasp
the meaning of what is proper
conduct not to say attitude
and philosophy for a leading
person in his administration.
TO HAVE reappointed Brown
after his anti-Semitic statement
was bad enough. To let him
remain as head of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff after gratuitously
insulting Britain and Israel, two
of our allies, is appalling.
The last-minute television and
radio blitz by the Ford ad-
vertisers which features a blatant
distortion of Carter's Playboy
interview only repeats another
Ford practice of the past.
Too many have forgotten that,

IT IS the Ford tone to seek to
diminish the First Amendment in
other ways, as well. I hope the
sharp contrast in positions on the
prayer amendment is nt
overlooked by Jews, in par-
ticular. Jimmy Carter stood
firmly by his convictions that he
would not support such an
amendment which would revive
the shadow of bigotry in the
schools and destroy the
separation of church and state.
President Ford invoked the
memory of that pious hypocrite,
the late Everett Dirksen, to
support it, and his answer in-
dicated not only his ignorance of
the sensitive factors involved,
but of the constitutional record.
In the final debate, Jimmy
Carter set his tone: in choosing a
Supreme Court Justice, he would
emphasize human rights over
property rights: on the economy,
he would give priority to putting
people to work: on the environ-
ment, the issues of conservation
and pollution would be of major
concern; on staffing his ad-
ministration, he gave Walter
Mondale as a sample.
THE FORD tone also is a
matter of record: Lockheed, Penn
Central and the oil interests are
his first concern: the mounting
unemployment and poverty rate
are his answer to the economy; he
is rated "hopeless" by those most
concerned with our environment,
his support of Butz and Brown,
his choice of Dole, tell us the kind
of people he respects.

Ford Meets With Top Leaders
President Ford sought
to explain to a group of
over 150 Jewish com-
munity leaders why his
Administration sells arms
to Saudi Arabia, what it
intends to do to increase
the rate of Jewish emi-
gration from the Soviet
Union and how it is com-
batting the Arab boycott.
He made his remarks in
response to questions from
rabbis and lay leaders
during a closed-door
meeting at the Center for
Holocaust Studies of the
Yeshiva of Platbush after
addressing about 3,000
persons outside the school
last week.

Your Rabbi Sneaks
In the last few years we have
witnessed the appearance of a
plethora of movements, from the
radical left to hashish smoking
hippies, from Jesus freaks to
followers of the guru, from Dr.
Moon to worshippers of the
occult. But what is of major
concern to me is the fact that all
these movements seem to attract
a disproportionate number of
Jews. Indeed, why are Jews so
vulnerable why are young
Jews the most prone to joining
any movement that comes
Today we witness a new
development in the evolution of
cults Transcendental
Meditation. Unlike other move-
ments, whose thrust is aimed
primarily at the young, and
which offer new modes of
religious worship, T.M. claims to
be totally secular in nature and
without any religious overtones.
It is a "religion-less, drug-less
high" guaranteed to turn on the
entire family.
According to the proponents
of T.M., "It matters little
whether you are Jewish,
Christian, Moslem, Buddhist, or
atheist. For $125 we have a
mantra for you." Thus T.M.
neutralizes all pangs of con-
science and reassures its ad-
herents that there is nothing to
fear. After all. we are told, T.M.
does not demand that you
abandon your faith.
But let the facts speak for
themselves. Where does T.M.
really stand on religion?
Despite its claims to
secularism. T.M. is nothing less
than Hinduism in disguise. Its
rites and rituals are permeated
with Hindu words and symbols.
In front of an altar dominated by
the portrait of the Guru Dev, the
initiate makes an offering of
flowers, fruit, and a symbolic
white handkerchief. Candles are
lit, incense is burned, in-
cantations are chanted. Then,
shrouded in mystery, the secret
mantra is transmitted to the new
disciple the mantra through
which he believes he will be able
to rise above the natural laws
which govern other men. The
mantra is his shield, his
protection, the source of his
spiritual insights and strength.
But the gurus of T.M. are
quick to assure you that this is
not a religion, that there is no
conflict between the mantra and
the Torah way of life.
However, what is most
astonishing is the propensity for
so many Jews to adopt these
new trends. We are reaping the
bitter harvest of a generation
which has come of age in a spir-
itual wasteland. If this
generation would only possess
knowledge of Torah, they would
readily comprehend that
meditation itself is one of the
most sublime forms of religious
But meditation for a Jew was
never form of self-indulgence,
nor was the subject of bis
meditation a private, secret
possession. It was his duty to
share every word, every thought
with his friends, with his neigh-
bors, so that through his
meditation, the light of God
might illuminate the world.
Nor were our ancestors
unaware of the importance of
introspective meditation. Prior
to invoking God in prayer, the
great sages of Israel would
prepare themselves for this
sacred moment by meditating,
and then, at the conclusion of
their service to God, they would
once again meditate, so that
their encounter with the
Almighty would achieve the
highest spiritual level.
Consider for a moment the
immensity of the tragedy ... A
nation that stood at Sinai and
spoke to God face to face, is
resigned today to sitting like
zombies meditating upon
mantras, while the words of the
Torah elude them.
It is not our intention to enter
into a detailed discussion on the
merits or demerits of T.M. But it
is our intention to warn our
Jewish brethren not to fall into
the trap of entering an alien cult,
a form of religious worship in the
guise of relaxation, mental
health, etc. There is only one
meaning that T.M. can have for
the Jew, and that is Torah and

Question: Why is the seventh
day of Succoth (Hoshanah
Rabbah) regarded as such an
important day?
Answer: The Talmud (Sukkah
36a) names this day the day of
Chibut Aravah, i.e. the day of
"beating the willow branch" or
simply the day of Aravah. i.e. the
day of the willow branch.
It has also been referred to in
the Midrashic literature as the
"Day of the Hoshanah." the
"Hoshanah" being another name
for the willow.
The mystical tradition of the
Kabbalah claims that the actual
final verdict of judgment reached
on Yom Kippur is sealed on this
Since the willows usually grow
near brooks, i.e. the kind of
willows we use during the festival
of Succoth. the willow becomes a
symbol of the adequate resource

Question: Why do some Jews
stay up the whole night of
Hoshanah Rabbah and recite
portions from the holy literature?
Answer: Since this day is the
last day of judgment for this
period, every effort is exerted to
achieve virtues on this day. The
selection is called Tikkun, just as
it is called on the night of
Shavuoth. Some contend that if
one might be judged guilty for
not having read enough or
learned enough of the holy
literature he makes up for it on
this night. Others read the
Psalms because it is on this day
that King David, who was the
author of the Psalms, is regarded
as the guest of every Jewish
succah. Others contend that this
was the day or the holiday
dedicated to the importance of
the Oral Law, and thus they
study portions of the law to show
their respect for the continuance
of the Jewish heritage through
the Oral Law which consists of
commentaries on the Bible.
Generally speaking. Succoth is
the time when the judgment is
handed down affecting the
amount of rainfall that will come
during the year. The last day of
judgment over this facet of
nature would thus be on
Hoshanah Rabbah and thus this
day assumes critical importance.
Our usual reference to this day
is the day Hoshanah Rabbah
because the willow assumes an
important signifcance on this
day. i.e. "The great day for the
willow," or because many willows
or many prayers are said with the
willow on this day (i.e. "many

Q- What are the reasons for
the Dietary Laws?
A. Dietary Laws is a collective
term for the Jewish laws and
customs pertaining to the types
of food permitted for con-
sumption and their preparation.
These laws concern themselves
with what animals, birds and
fish may be eaten, the way in
which they must be prepared,
and the fact that meat must not
be consumed or cooked together
with milk or other dairy
Throughout the ages many
attempts have been made to
explain these laws. The Bible
itself does not explain them,
although they are closely as-
sociated with the concept of
"holiness." It has been variously
suggested that the underlying
motivation for the dietary laws
are hygienic and sanitary,
aesthetic and folkloric, or ethical
and psychological. The prophet
Ezekiel (33:25), for instance,
equates the eating of blood with
the sins of idolatry and murder.
According to one inter-
pretation of this verse, the laws
are ethical in intent since ab-
stention from the consumption
of blood tames man's instinct for
violence by instilling in him a
horror of bloodshed. The rabbis
of the Talmud generally
regarded these laws as aids to
moral conduct. A halachic
Midrash states: "Let not a man
say, 'I do not like the flesh of
swine'; on the contrary, he
should say, 'I like it but must'
abstain, seeing that the Torah
has forbidden it.' "
The Encyclopaedia Judaica
states that according to some
mystics, the forbidden foods
defile and pollute man's soul and
blunt the intellectual powers.
Maimonides notes that these
laws "accustom us to restrain
both the growth of desire and
disposition to consider the
pleasure of eating as the end of
man's existence." He also
maintained that all forbidden
foods "have some bad and
damaging effect on the body."
Boiling meat in milk seems to
have been part of certain pagan
Reform Judaism, first in
Germany, considered the dietary
laws as "of a mere temporary
ceremonial character and not
essentially religious or moral
laws." One of the exponents of
the Conservative position points
out that the dietary laws achieve
"inner hallowing," demanding
sacrifice, self-discipline and
determination as well as courage
to face the powerful current of
conformity, and "outer separate-
ness," setting Jews apart from
the nations.
Nobel Prize for Literature
Saul Bellow Wins 76
The 1976 Nobel Prize for
Literature was awarded
here Oct. 20 to Saul Bellow,
the American novelist and
academician whose large
body of work epitomizes
the experience of the Jew-
ish intellectual in America
in this century. He lost out
winning the Nobel Prize in
October, 1975 despite in-
dications that he was a
front-runner for the award.
Born in Montreal,
Canada, 61 years ago as
Solomon Bellows, son of
Jewish immigrant parents
from Russia, he changed
his name when he started
publishing his works in the
1940s. He has been a pro-
fessor of literature at the
University of Chicago since
1962 and also taught at the
University of Minnesota
and at Princeton
BELLOW WON the 1976
Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his
latest novel "Humboldt's Gift,"
published last year. He has
received the U.S. National Book
Award three times, the French
Prix International de Literature
in 1965. and the Jewish Heritage
Award in 1968.
His latest book, "To Jerusalem
and Back." published this year,
is a non-fiction personal account
of his impressions of Israel, a
country he has visited on a
number of occasions. Two of his
books, "Herzog." published in
1964, and "Mr. Sammler's
Planet." which won him the
National Book Award in 1971,
have been translated into Hebrew
and were enthusiastically
received by Israeli critics and
Bellow is the first American to
receive the Nobel Prize for Liter-
ature since it was awarded to
John Steinbeck in 1962. The
Swedish Academy's announce-
ment gave Americans a clean
sweep of the Nobel Prizes
awarded for this year.
THE PRIZE for literature
amounts to about $162,000.

then I could see in the long term
where it might be a tremendous
asset, where they would gain
power and could bring about
stability in the area.
Lurie: If Israel would win, for
Brown: But you see, the
problem today is today there's
stability because Israel is strong.
She could whip Syria and Egypt
handily, and there's nobody else
that could check them in that
area, unless the Russians took a
direct hand. By that I mean send
forces in addition to equipment
and advisors. And that's not
likely. It's just not worth the
game at this point. But with all
the money, the wealth that
the Arabs have through Saudi
Arabia with the Trucial
States primarily, and Libya
secondly, to buy weapons, to
train people and they're
breeding at a hell of a high rate
the birth rate is the popu-
lation growth is far greater than
in Israel. And the long term
outlook is that the Arab states
are going to overcome the
deficiency that they've had,
which is leadership and tech-
nology and educated people. And
I just don't see any ... it'
going to take a complete change
in outlook on Israel's part. Up to
this point at least she's main-
tained her position, and I must
say, if I were in her shoes, I
don't know, I'd be in a terrible
dilemma because she's
surrounded by people who'd just
as soon see her pushed into the
Lurie: You don't think they
really want to have a legitimate,
down to earth peace ... the
Arabs. I mean?
Brown: Oh, I don't... I think
they do in the short term. But I
don't in 15-20 years. Because
they have no other option. I
would think that if, for instance,
if Saudi Arabia, which is the key
to the thing because she has the
wealth, could just go on a
nation-building program .
that would keep it totally oc-
cupied for a long time, and then
to help Egypt to get on her feet
economically and what not, they
couldn't worry about Israel. But
they've got a thing that they are
very, very sincere about these
Holy Lands. And some accom-
modation has got to be found
where Jerusalem can be shared
by the religions that, you know,
to whom the area is meaningful.
But I can't see Israel as an asset
to the United States today.
LURIE: And this theory that
paralleling it, for instance, to
France. Once France detached
herself from Israel, the fact is
that France lost any leverage
whatsoever she had with the
Arabs because she put herself
out of the game. Right now, the
United States is the only power,
the only force in the world that
has any leverage whatsoever on

this cease-fire holds through the
end of the month (inaudible),
the Israelis. Therefore they have
tremendous clout with the
BROWN: That's exactly
right. We've got a little with the
Saudis, I think, if we use it
wisely, because of the Saudis'
concern for Communism.
LURIE: Right.
BROWN: You know, I think
genuinely the Saudis are ... As
I said, I think the Saudis are
genuinely concerned about the
Soviets and Communists.
They're concerned about Israel
primarily because of the Holy
Lands. They want entree to
Jerusalem. I think that they
genuinely have a concern for the
PLO and all those other general
problems, but they're not real
heartburn issues with them. At
least that's what I detect from
my limited conversation with
LURIE: Following your way
of thinking, with which I happen
to agree very much about the
Saudis computing the Com-
munist factor, and so on, I
wonder if the Saudis are really
that fanatically in love with the
PLO due to the fact that the
PLO, basically, once they estab-
lish themselves, they will have
another Albania in the Middle
BROWN: Exactly.
LURIE: That's for sure.
Therefore, maybe it's just some
kind of lip service, because
basically I don't think they are
so happy to have this kind of
threat because .
BROWN: Not only that.
Raanan. they might, you know,
if they get some land and estab-
lish a Palestinian state, it's not
going to be a viable thing.
Somebody's going to have to
support them. They're going to
look to the Arabs to support
them .
LURIE: Of course
BROWN: And the fellow with
the money is Saudi Arabia.
LURIE: The rich uncle
BROWN: That's right. Now,
the other concern over there
really is Iran, and the puzzling
question of why she is building
such a tremendous military
force. She couldn't with her
population do anything that
would provide protection from
the Soviet Union, if there is a
real threat there. She's got
adequate power now to handle
Afghanistan and Pakistan, so,
you know, if they were a threat
you could discount that .
she's a little better than a match
for Iraq now. And my gosh, the
programs the Shah has coming.
It just makes you wonder about
whether he doesn't some day
have visions of the Persian
LURIE: Certainly.

the Persian Gulf for nothing.

Middle East is that tremendous
flow of oil. Our dependence on,
what, 17 or 18 percent now, I
guess, of our national con-
sumption. And all of Europe,
Japan. It's just got to continue
to flow, or, the world is going to

LURIE: What about Lebanon
right now, changing into what
we can call by pragmatic terms a
new, very extreme left regime in
a very vital spot?
BROWN: Well, it could, but
I' m not prepared to be quite that
optimistic ... if this cease-fire
LURIE: I'm sorry I'm
pessimistic because I said
it's becoming a left regime.
BROWN: I say ... you're

The Syrians have been very con-
strained in their military effort
and have provided the
stabilizing balance there. If we
get a regime, if something comes
out of this election that is not as
radical as you suspect it might
be, it will have Syrian support.
And maybe, just maybe, they
could carry it off. If it comes out
too radical, I think we're going
to have continued trouble over
there within Lebanon.
It's been amazing to me that
they've been able to fight this
long, on the scale that they have,
and with the tremendous
destruction and disruption of the
country, and have the rest of the
Middle East kind of keep hands
off. The Syrians have sort of
boxed it in order to maintain
some degree of control without
actually getting in and taking
the place over. And the Israelis
have been very restrained. Both
have made statements that the
other understands .
LURIE: Are the Israelis
restrained also because of
American pressure?
BROWN: As far as I know, it
hasn't been necessary to apply
any. I think they're restrained
primarily because this isn't the
provocation over which they are
prepared to go to war. The
lesson of the last war to them
was that the casualties were a
heck of a lot heavier than they're
prepared to take A few years
ago, in some of the earlier wars,
they were quickly decisive. The
casualties were reasonable,
although they don't want to take
This last time they took very
heavy casualties the first four or
five days. And I don't think that
small country wants to sea that
again or can afford to see it.
Politically they can't afford to.
They've got tremendous internal
problems, as you know better
than I. You've been over there.
They're over-extended because of
the tremendous military burden
they have, and I guess if we were
in their straits, we would be, too.

She lived to see its rebirth after Lee's surrender

A momentous autobiography that reveals the soldier
who never forgot his roots as tiller of the soil, the
loner and the political maverick who rose to the
highest echelons of government. This is the story not
just of a hero or symbol, but of a man. And it is far
more inspiring and engrossing than any of the
legends that have preceded it.

Friday, November 5.1976 f ,
a two of AuthoRs make f or VeRy Q006 Reading
MORRIS N. KERTZER, author of What is a Jew?.
humorously recounts the trials and tribulations of
being a Rabbi in Tell Me Rabbi (Bloch, 196 pp., $7.95).
He covers the gamut of congregational life from "Bar
Mitzvah Blues" to "A Seat in Heaven." In over 50
stories, Dr. Kertzer formulates a human picture of the
man behind the pulpit. (Apparently no anecdotes
about women rabbis exist as yet.)
The author indicates that "this book is concerned
largely with the importance of (Rabbis) not being too
earnest about themselves." An amusing and warm
presentation .
YOSEF TEKOAH, former Ambassador of Israel to
the United Nations, has assembled a record of Israel's
stand on the major questions of foreign policy con-
cerning the Middle East and the world community. In
the Face of Nations: Israel's Struggle for Peace
(Simon & Schuster, 284 pp.. $9.95) includes
statements Tekoah has delivered at the United
Nations and various Jewish conferences.
Tekoah deals with the significant issues of self-
determination for the Jewish people. Jerusalem's
status, the relationship between Israel and America,
Susan panoff
the threat of Arab terrorism, and the Palestinian
refugee problem.
HE FACES the member nations and clearly and
unflinchingly discusses Israel's position and status in
the United Nations. Above all, the author adeptly
presents Israel's determination to achieve a lasting
Tekoah served at the UN from 1968 until 1975. He
is presently president of Ben-Gurion University in
This reviewer was intrigued to find that Mr. Tekoah
was born in China and received his law degree from a
university in Shanghai. When I mentioned this to a
family friend who had been in China after World War
II. he told me that he had known Tekoah. then Joseph
Even as a young man, Tekoah was a leader in
Zionist activities among the largely Polish Jewish
community in Shanghai .
Golem: a Jewish Legend (J. B. Lippincott, 39 pp.,
$8.95), a children's book, has received much attention
since its recent publication. Many have praised the
bright, bold color paintings she created expressly for
this story.
She was inspired to do the legend of the Golem as a
picture book after seeing the German film The Golem,
which was made in the 1920s. McDermott studied the
Hebrew alphabet and the meaning of its letters in
Kabbalah. She then integrated the Kabbalistic
phenomenon in her work.
Her retelling of the legend is modem. With pictures,
it presents a different and vivid approach to this story
from Y. L. Peretz's famous version.
HOLLYWOOD "The Sheik of Araby" is the title of Stanley
Kramer's next picture, the veteran movie producer-director told
me during an interview. Kramer currently is completing the
editing of "The Domino Principle." based on Adam Kennedy's
best seller dealing with the individual's fight against a massive
and nameless organization.
Gene Hackman portrays a criminal caught in the whirlpool of
intrigue and set up as the "fall guy" by the secret militant
society. He is surrounded on the screen by Candice Bergen.
Richard Widmark. Mickey Rooney and Kdward Albert.
ELI WALLACH has the key role of General Reser who
masterminds the clandestine activities and who doesn't shrink
back from ruthless assassinations.
"The Sheik of Araby." for a change of pace and mood, will be a
comedy, but according to Kramer, one with a spark of truth in the
disguise of pure fun.
The screen original by Stanford Sherman, and the subsequent
scenario by Frank Waltman. kids around with the feudal Arab
dignitaries who have invaded the capitals of Europe as well as
America with their overflow of money and now are the free-
spenders in the hotels and nightclub-casinos of London. Paris.
Palm Beach and New York.
HOWEVER, the Sheik our main title refers to (hopefully to be
portrayed by Alan Arkinl is awfully poor; he is the only one
among his brethren who possesses no oil wells and has to get
along by the meager sale of a few antique statues or imitation
jewelry, until one day. when the desert earth erupts in a violent
quake and large gushers pour an overflow of oil unto his shabby
sheikhdom. When the "disaster" is controlled, it becomes clear
that our nebbish sheik now owns 70 percent of all the world's oil
reserve. Now the farce accelerates.
Kramer says jokingly that he tries to cast not one but two Jews
in the roles of Arab potentates. In addition to Arkin. there also
will be Gabe Kaplan in traditional Moslem headgear.
The two principals are going to be surrounded by an all-star
cast, very much in the vein of Kramer's "It's a Mad. Mad, Mad,
Mad World." The tune. "The Sheik of Araby." will be in-
corporated into wildly funny happenings .
"THE FRONT." the new Martin Ritt picture written by Walter
Bernstein (both blacklisted during the McCarthy era), takes a
satirical look at the hysteria of the early 1950s ridiculing not only
the House Unamerican Activities Committee but also the lack of
backbone and dignity shown by members of the entertainment
industry, especially studio executives; in this particular case, the
high brass in network television, most of whom apologize that
they wished it didn't happen when they fired "red-tainted"
writers, directors and actors.
Bernstein strongly believes that if those in high places in the
industry had taken a firm stand in the beginning, the witch hunt
could never have become effective.
WOODY ALLEN is portraying the central character of a nitwit
who advances from the cash register in a "deli" to front for a
famous television writer, actually as "Woody Allen" in an im-
possible disguise, though he renders a remarkable performance.
But Zero Mostel as "Hecky," the moon-faced comedian who
commits suicide after having been forced to spy on his fellow-
artists, creates an unforgettable character of pathetic greatness.
Herschel Bernardi contributes the tragic profile of the television
producer who knuckles under the avalanche of threats and vile
innuendos. Mostel, Bernardi and two fellow-performers in "The
Front," namely Lloyd Gough and Joshua Shelley, also graced the
Hollywood blacklist of a quarter-century ago .
ABBY MANN, screenplay author of "Judgement at Nurem-
berg" and "Ship of Fools," currently completing his scenario to
"King." NBC World Premiere movie about the late Martin Luther
King, reveals that he uncovered new evidence about the
assassination of the civil rights leader when researching his
current television epic.
Rep. Walter E. Fauntroy (D., D.C.) confirms that without the
new information supplied by Mann, the House could not have
passed a resolution to establish a Select Committee to reopen the
case and re-investigate the murder of Dr. King .

Weapons Not Available Here
WASHINGTON (JTA) President Ford disclosed
to about 50 editors of American Jewish newspapers at an
unprecedented 35-minute question-and-answer session in
the White House that two of the four weapons systems he
agreed last week to provide to Israel "have not yet been
delivered to our own forces." the Arabs and that a solution by

more to deterrence than to
utilization for war" and that he
also hoped "both sides" would
realize this, a reference to
suggestions from his questioners
that Arab countries, particularly
Saudi Arabia, might now request
. similar weapons. Ford said he did
not believe any significant
requests have been made by
other countries for such systems
and observed that "they could
buy them elsewhere."
He did not amplify that
The President told the editors
that "The list of weapons
requested by Israel is a list gone
over by me personally and is in
the process of implementation by
the Department of Defense."
ASKED IF letters of
notification of the transfer of
equipment will go to Congress
during its current recess or be
delayed until after the new
Congress convenes in January,
Ford replied, "We will certainly
do what is required" under the
relationship between Congress
and the Executive branch.
The arms agreement with
Israel which has aroused
criticism from as yet unidentified
sources at the Pentagon and the
State Department was one of a
variety of topics for the
President's comments in the Blue
Room of the White House.
The President was introduced
by Max Fisher of Detroit, an
industrialist and national Jewish
leader who is chairman of the
" People for Ford Committee.''
HE ADDRESSED the editors
briefly and then took questions
for about 36 minutes. After-
wards, the President mingled
with the editors and answered
several other questions.
He pledged that his "ground
rules" for dealing with Israel and
the Middle East conflict were "no
imposed solution, no insistence
on one-sided concessions," the
"closest consultation" with
Israel and "very substantial
military and economic aid" to
that country.
Ford stressed that "any
settlement in the Middle East
should come in direct
negotiations" between Israel and

Carter Voices Anger
At Soviet Beatings
Jimmy Carter expressed outrage
Oct. 20 at the beatings of 12
Jewish activists by Soviet police
agents after a sit-in Oct. 18 at an
administrative building of the
Supreme Soviet in Moscow to
protest the denial of exit visas.
The Democratic Presidential
candidate expressed himself on
this issue after being informed
about the beatings by Eugene
Gold, chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry. In
his response to Gold, Carter
"I FULLY share your sense of
outrage and I will continue to
speak out against such actions.
Our relations with the Soviet
Union cannot be conducted
without taking into account the
degree to which they comply with
the Helsinki accords."
As President, he continued, he
would ask the Soviet Union
publicly to comply with the
human rights provisions of the
Helsinki accord. "I would put the
matter of freedom and free emi-
gration among the top issues that
would be discussed with the
Soviet Union."
In a related move. Carter sent
a cable to the American Embassy
in Moscow for delivery to
Vladimir Slepak, the veteran
"refusnik" who led the delegation
of Jews at the sit-in and was one
of those beaten by the Soviet in
Moscow to protest the denial of
exit visas.
IN HIS telegram to Slepak,
Carter stated: "I have read with
great concern about the treat-
ment that you and some of your
colleagues suffered recently. As
you know, I have spoken out on
this matter as Governor and
during this campaign and have
referred to your case by name. I

Babi Yar Victims Memorialized by Activists
In an obvious effort to further
eradicate the memory of Babi
Yar, the Soviet secret police
warned Kiev activists shortly
before the 35th anniversary cere-
monies at the site where 100,000
Jews were executed by the Nazis
in 1941, "Do not place your dirty
Zionist flowers at the monument
or you will be imprisoned for
many years."
Responding in an open letter
to Jewish communities through-
out the world, Soviet Jewish
activists wrote:
"The fascists tried to destroy
all the Jews physically and
today's anti-Semites try to wipe
out every memory of suffering
and sacrifice of our people. For
many years now, Babi Yar has
been the only place from the
Holocaust where Jews are not
permitted to pay their respects
to the memory of their
slaughtered brethren. Only
under the pressure of public
opinion in the free world did
Soviet authorities finally agree
to erect a monument at Babi

Mrs. Wormser stated that the
Conference was to be of "im-
portance to the development of
ORT's worldwide vocational
network. The increasing pressure
for quality education in the
United States, with special em-
phasis on vocational education
to prepare students for real life
tasks, and the increased need for
expansion of vocational edu-
cation facilities overseas give our
deliberations in Cincinnati
special relevance and urgency."

300 Jews gathered at the site
outside of Kiev. Several Jewish
sources in the Soviet Union
reported that dozens of Jewish
activists from across the USSR
had been removed from trains
and forbidden to attend
memorial services.
The large majority of Jews
who had traveled to Babi Yar
from cities all over the Soviet
Union were not allowed near the
memorial. Many of them were
detained by the Kiev branch of
the KGB for as much as 12
About two dozen Jews were
permitted to approach and to
rush through a hasty "kaddish."
They were told in advance to
hurry things along "so that
there would be no trouble."
Even then, when a couple of
them went forward to lay com-
memorative wreaths, the KGB
men stopped them and tore off
any inscriptions which referred
to the fact that the victims at
Babi Yar were Jews.

the U.S. was playing a role in
that area.

that he was dedicated to aiding

There is an interesting story
by I. L. Peretz which tells of a
doctor who came to visit his
father, a poor tailor, in a small
shtetle in eastern Europe. On
Saturday morning the father
asks his son to accompany him
to Shul for the prayer service,
but the son presents various
arguments against praying. God
does not need to be told of our
troubles; He knows them. Why
then pray? To tell Him how
great He is? He knows that, too.
And He must find it em-

The old man sank into
meditation for a moment and
then replied, "My son, what you
say is true, you are absolutely

It is interesting to note that
"In Praise of Yiddish," by the
late Maurice Samuel, is an ex-
cellent book for those who wish
to know more about the develop-
ment, origin, character and
flavor of Yiddish. It ia well docu-
mented and I recommend it
highly. The Hallandale Public
Library, under the direction of
Alan Becker, head librarian, has
a large collection of Judaica,
including fiction, and books of
special interest such as "In
Praise of Yiddish." There are
also many reference books, in-
cluding the sixteen-volume set of
the Encyclopaedia Judaica.
