CRC Told About
Arab Propaganda
"Large amounts of Arab money are being spent on a
huge propaganda campaign in the United States,"
declared Alan Shapiro, associate director of the B'nai
B'rith Anti-Defamation League of South Florida, to
members of the Community Relations Committee of the
Jewish Federation of South Broward.
Shapiro said that the Arabs are spending more than $45
million to "pollute the U.S. airwaves with anti-Jewish and
anti-Israel propaganda. ADL sees this propaganda as a
threat to the U.S., support of Israel and we all must fight
it," he added.
ACCORDING TO Shapiro, the ADL is combating Arab
propaganda through various means, including the
production of taped radio programs called "Dateline
Israel." The 15 minute show is produced 26 times per year
and is currently heard on several South Florida radio
stations, including WWWL, WAXY and WGBS.
'DATELINE ISRAEL' brings the truth about the
Jewish State to American citizens," Shapiro noted, "and
it demonstrates Israel's accomplishments in all fields. We
are still trying to air the show on more local radio stations
and also throughout the state.
Shapiro said that local residents of South Broward
should call a radio station after hearing "Dateline Israel"
and favorably comment on the show. He also noted that
stations which do not air the show should be called and
asked why not?

Carter Signs First Law To
Limit Foreign Boycotts
NEW YORK President
Carter signed into law the first
American anti-boycott bill and
commended the "cooperative
effort between the business com-
munity, Jewish leaders, the
Congress and the Executive
branch" which shaped the bill
"as a model for what can be
accomplished in even more
difficult areas when reasonable
people agree to sit down together
in good will and good faith."
He said he was "confident that
the divisive issues in the Middle
East, which give rise to current
boycotts, can be resolved equally
satisfactorily through a similar
process of reasonable, peaceful
cooperation."
IN A statement following the
bill signing ceremony, Burton M.
Joseph, national chairman of the
Anti-Defamation League*'and co-
chairman of the ADL-Business
Roundtable negotiations, said:
"We are grateful to the
President and the Congress for
ending the 25-year effort to free
American businessmen from the
restraints imposed by foreign
boycott activities. We are proud
of the role the Anti-Defamation
League and The Business
Roundtable played in drafting
the guidelines which formed the
basis for the new anti-boycott
law. It is a law which expresses
the will and conscience of the
American people in their deep
commitment to freedom of trade
and freedom from
discrimination.
Joseph, representatives of The
Business Roundtable and other
Jewish agencies were among the
witnesses of the bill signing
ceremony in the Rose Garden of
the White House. Government
officials included Vice President
Walter F. Mondale. Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance, Zbigniew
Brzezinski, national security
advisor, Undersecretary of
Commerce Sidney Harman,
Sens. Harrison A. Williams Jr.
and Adlai E. Stevenson, Reps.
Benjamin S. Rosenthal,
Jonathan Bingham and Stephen
J. Solarz, as well as other
members of Congress.
PRESIDENT Carter in his
remarks upon signing the bill
said that his concern about
foreign boycott "stemmed from
our special relationship with
Israel, as well as from the
economic, military and security
needs of both our countries. But
the issue also goes to the very
heart of free trade among all

Pittell Sets Goals for Cash
Robert Pittell. M.D., Cash Collection
Committee chairman, has set his goals
towards turning pledges to the Combined
Jewish AppealIsrael Emergency Fund
campaign into cash payments.
Pittell said that, "Our task is not finished
until we convert the good intentions ex-
pressed in the form of pledges to our
Combined Jewish Appeul Israel
Emergency Fund camapign into the vitally
needed cash needed to sustain our network
and Jewish educational programs."
CITING THE "ever increasing demand
for more and better services in all areas,"
Pittell stressed that "without the cash
needed to maintain and build upon our
services and programs, we will be faced with
some cruel choices on which areas to cut back
in our local programs.
"Do we cut our services to our growing
older adult population who benefit from
Douglas Gardens, the JCC, or from the
transportation and nutritional programs
ii......it........iiiiiiiiiiiiin.........iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniii.......i.............mi.....i........."mi.....iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. offered through our agencies?
"Do we dare think of cutting the services
offered to troubled families and individuals
and to our large number of new Americans
from Russia at the Jewish Family Service?
"SHOULD WE think of cutting our
programs offered by the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation, when our youth are being
courted by bizaare cults and demanding
higher quality Jewish educational programs?
"Do we cut back on funding for our
Community Relations Committee at a time
when the Arab nations are spending $45
million a year on anti-Israel and anti-Semitic
propaganda?
"Of course we could not consider cutting in
any of these areas," said Pittell. "The
situation in Israel requires our continued
support through cash."
PITTELL POINTED our that the
"uncertain political situation and increased
political pressure on Israel have combined to
increase its economic burdens, thereby
increasing the need for strong continued
support on the part of the South Broward
Jewish community.
South Broward Israel Mission Scheduled Oct. 16
)ct. 16-26, are the dates to
femember for the community-
ide mission to Israel sponsored
the Jewish Federation of
outh Broward, according to Dr.
i Meline, Mission chairman.
)r. Meline said that this year's
ourney to the Jewish State will
"more exciting than any
Previous visit" because of the
Ipecial sightseeing plan and
riefings being prepared
specially for South Broward
participants by the United
Jewish Appeal Missions
department.
HE INDICATED that in ad
Jition to a comprehensive view of
Israel, with expert tour guides,
Mission travelers will have:
leetings with top Israeli
government and Jewish Agency
pfficials, a special ceremony, in-
depth visits with new im-
ligrants, a major theatrical
it, home hospitality and
special visits for members of the
medical-dental professions.
"This is a unique opportunity
for South Broward residents to
see Israel as more than an or-
dinary tourist," Dr. Meline
declared. "Anyone can go to
Israel, but a mission under the
auspices of our Jewish
Federation is a special treat
which should not be missed," he
added.
Dr. Meline said the Mission will
depart Fort Lauderdale airport,
connecting at Kennedy airport
with a non-stop El Al flight to
Tel Aviv. The voyage will include
four nights at the Tel Aviv
Hilton, six nights at the
Jerusalem Hilton and a special
overnight stay in Northern
Israel. All accommodations will
be deluxe.
"COST FOR the Mission will
be $675 per person, inclusive of
meals." noted Dr. Meline. "In
addition, all participants will be
expected to make a minimum gift
to the 1978 Combined Jewish
Appeal Israel Emergency Fund
campaign in the amount of
$1,200, per family plus a $300
woman's gift to the Women's
Division of the Jewish
Federation. Individual travelers
will be expected to make a $1,200
minimum commitment," he
explained.
Four optional extensions are
available to Mission participants
to London, Rome, Amsterdam or
additional days in Israel. For
complete details on the Mission
to Israel and its European ex-
tensions, the Federation or Dr.
Meline may be contacted.
All inquiries should be made
soon as spaces for the trip are
filling quickly and all reser-
vations, with deposit, must be
received no later than Aug. 15.
A highlight of the 1976 South Broward Mission to Israel was
the Bar Mitzvah, at the Western Wall, of Israel Budasoff, (left)
with Federation Vice President Moses Hornstein participating.

Gay Rights! Afterthought
The Jewish Floridian has waited to let the dust settle
in the struggle over the Gay rights ordinance before
making any comment. This is not to suggest that the
picture is already sufficiently clear repeal of the Dade
County ordinance extending guarantees of non-
discrimination to homosexuals occurred only a few weeks
ago.
Further to complicate matters, it appears that the
struggle is now going national.
Nevertheless, some of the issues involved have
already fallen into sufficient perspective, so far as we are
concerned, and what they suggest is that the original anti-
discrimination ordinance written by Sen. Harry Cain when
he was a member of the Dade County Commission in 1968
should never have been revised by the present commission
in the first place.
From a total community point of view, it is our belief
that homosexual affectional and sexual preferences are not
the moral issue or the human rights issue for legislators
either to guarantee or to deny.
From the religious point of view, we regret the at-
tempt on the part of those who saw the Gay rights
struggle as a human rights struggle and who, in their zeal
to prevail, made it a Jewish struggle, as well.
As we see it, the parallels they drew to the Holocaust
and to anti-Semitism generally in order to arouse the
sympathies of Jewish voters were and still are spurious
and with little intellectual or historic foundation.
In this regard, we take exception to the positions of
our own columnists who have supported retention of the
revised anti-discrimination ordinance on the basis of these
opportunistic appeals to emotion.
We also regret the fact that rabbis in the South
Florida community took sides in the struggle, which has
resulted in divisive communal feelings. Ditto for the
Jewish organizations and agencies that involved them-
selves in the struggle, adding their support to the con-
fused notion that the repeal referendum was a Jewish
issue.
An Important Distinction
We propose no set of feelings one way or another so
far as homosexuality itself is concerned. Nor do we pose as
judges of others. In fact, it will be recalled that The Jewish
Floridian was, to our knowledge, the first publication in
the South Florida community, as early as last year,
specifically to open its news and opinion columns to
Jewish Gays and their pleas for support for the establish-
ment of a Gay synagogue here.
For weeks, our Letters to the Editor forum was filled
with dozens of reader responses, pro and con. Our studied
opinion of that experience substantiates our conclusions
here. The Jewish Gay plea for support for a Gay
synagogue was one of the opening salvos in the sub-
sequent Gay rights ordinance victory.
Now that the ordinance has been repealed, it is clear
that the struggle will be resumed locally and nationally.
As individual Americans, it is anyone's privilege to
become involved in political and/or ideological
movements, the Gay rights movement included.
But it is our position that there is no justification for
organized Jewish community involvement in this
movement. Furthermore, should the Gay synagogue issue
be raised again, it will be our position that there is no
justification for the establishment of such a synagogue.
Syrian Jewry's Plight
We agree with the Committee for Rescue of Syrian
Jewry.
In view of the Carter administration's outspoken
policy on human rights around the world, we wonder why
it has failed to speak out on the plight of Syrian Jewry.
Syria is the only country in the world which main-
tains a total ban on Jewish emigration while non-Jewish
Syrians are readily able to emigrate.
The 4,500 Jews in Syria have suffered long enough
under Syria's flagrant disregard of the University
Declaration of Human Rights.

Saudis' Time Magazine Budget
ALONG WITH every other
American, I notice with some
considerable envy that Saudi
Arabia has just announced a $10
billion budget surplus as of June
Radio Riyadh reports that 68
percent of a projected $41.4
billion upcoming expenditure of
funds will go for social and
economic development.
The largest single allocation
will be $9 billion set aside for
defense, presumably again?!,
those nasty Israelis. Another $6
billion is being allocated for con-
struction of roads, railways and
airports.
THESE ARE generalized '
figures based on revenues of
$41.4 billion as opposed to ex-
penditures of $31.5 billion.
It is refreshing to read about a
country that earns more than it
spends. As an American, and I
Mindlin
tIIIIIIIII
minis
have already admitted it, the
Saudi budget causes some con-
siderable envy in me enough,
in fact, that I am inspired to take
a closer look at the figures to see
if the whole story is really being
told.
Of the $31.5 billion outlay.
Radio Riyadh only accounts for
some $15 billion. What does the
country intend to spend the
additional $16.5 billion on?
AT LEAST one case in point is
the June 6 edition of Time
Magazine, Pages 44-52, that the
Saudi budget fails to mention.
None of these pages is numbered
except by extrapolation. The
type face and layout are slightly
different from Time's usual
format. Each of the unnumbered
pages is accompanied by a seal:
an intimidating set of crossed
Arab swords with an unlikely
palm tree growing out of then-
juncture and the statement, 'A
report by the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia."
Pages 44-52 are a panegyric to
Saudi Arabia's increasingly close
relationship with western
civilization.
We are no longer meant to
think of Saudi Arabia as an
anomalous medieval desert
bastion blessed by the gods with
a limitless supply of oil that now
has the west, so to speak, over a
barrel and drinking to the tune of
its creaking spigot.
NO, Saudi Arabia is also
becoming contemporaneous,
civilized, industrialized, skillful
in the ways of a wise western
world and, above all, educated.
The Citizen
"Saudi Arabia's present uni-
versities are also being ex-
panded," says the report, "and
three new ones will be
established. The University of
Riyadh's enlarged new campus
will have ten million square feet
of teaching space more than at
Harvard."
I suppose it's that old envy
again, and this time it urges me
to remark: "Umm, at least

Yes, it Was a Jewish Vote Issue
Friday, July 1,1977
Volume 7
15 TAMUZ 5737
Number 12
So you didn't think that
referendum on June 7 was a
Jewish concern? Well, it was if
nothing else, it was that statis-
tically.
The statistics also show very
plainly that it was not the
concern of the Orthodox rab-
binate as advertised. Or that of,
Rabbi Irving Lehrman who came
down on the side of the Save Our
Children campaigners at a press
conference.
NOT THAT many Jews dis-
agreed with Rabbi Lehrman's
statement that "Jewish tradition
is constant in its rejection of
homosexuality as a legitimate
alternative lifestyle." It was that
more agreed by their 60
percent vote against repeal of
what was popularly labeled "the
gay rights ordinance" with the
liberal majority of Reform rabbis
and community Jewish leaders
like Marshall Harris that the
issue was more importantly one
of human and civil rights.
Be it ever so eroded by circum-
stances in recent years, the
tradition of civil rights and civil
liberties advocacy by American
Jews remains constant and no
other distinguishable ethnic
group in our society can make
that claim.
IT happened again on June 7 in
Dade County, U.S.A. Almost 70
percent of the vote was cast to
repeal the controversial ordi-
nance.
Only 61 of Dade's precincts
showed a majority the other way,
and 51 of them were among the
74 I select as "Jewish" precincts
in the analyses of voting patterns
I have presented here on
numerous post-election oc-
casions.
Edward.
Cohen
A closer study of Miami Beach
indicates that some of the
precincts we still label "Jewish"
may have been changed because
of the Cuban influx on that island
in recent years, but that will only
bolster the fact that Jews still
vote consistently on the side of
liberalness with comparatively
few exceptions.
AND EVEN in those precincts
in the South Beach area where
the Lubavitch-Lehrman-Bryant
influence seems to have taken
hold, the majorities for repeal
were extremely slim.
The Lubavitch-Orthodox
influence against what has been
the traditional American Jewish
position on issues of First
Amendment concerns is not only
on the question of homo-
sexuality.
In 1972 all but one Jewish
precinct voted against a proposal
to introduce an amendment to
the Constitution permitting
prayer in the public schools and
that was the one of greatest
Lubavitch concentration on
South Beach.
AS JUANITA Greene wrote in
her post-election analysis in The
Miami Herald, the patterns in
this latest referendum generally
followed those of the 1972 vote on
the constitutional amendment to
allow prayer in the public
schools.
While other factors helped
I determine the voting this time -
the hysteria and fear engendered
by scare ads and active inter-
vention of the conservative reli-
gious bodies among them it
nevertheless points up the failure
of Jewish secular leadership in an
, area where that leadership once
I was dominant.
There is a new generation that
has arisen which appears not to
know of the American Jewish
striving for survival and first-
class-citizen status through the
struggle for civil rights.
IT IS A generation which
needs as much education in
American Jewish history as it
does in the proper way to wind
tfillin. It needs to be reminded, as
we need the constant reminder of
the Passover story, that the rabbi
who stands up for prayer in the
public school and for second class
citizenship for any minority,
stands against the traditions of
the American Jewish community.
The work of the Community
Relations Council on behalf of
Soviet Jewry is important. That
is no excuse for continuing to
neglect its role of educating the
Jewish community especially
those newly let loose from the
ghettos of the mind on its
traditional self-serving role of
defending civil rights and
liberties in America. The June 7
vote was a Jewish vote, and we
would be wise to heed its message
that there is a perceptible
diminution of that vote.
(A personal note: When
this column appears, I expect
to be in Milan, Italy, and will
be unable to h eep you advised
on the state of the nation, let
alone our community, until
the first week in August, when
I return. It is a vacation I
believe we mutually deserve).

nations. I am therefore par-
ticularly pleased today to sign
into law the 1977 Amendments to
the Export Administration Act,
which will keep foreign boycott
practices from intruding directly
into American commerce."
Declaring that "the new law
does not threaten or question the
sovereign right of any nation to
regulate its own commerce with
other countries, nor is it directed
toward any particular country,"
Carter said "the bill seeks to end
the divisive effects on American
life of foreign boycott aimed at
Jewish members of our society. If
we allow such a precedent to
become established, we open the
door to similar action against any
ethnic, religious or racial group in
America."
Carter credited the legislation
"to the hard work of Sens.
Stevenson and Proxmire,
Congressmen Zablocki,
Rosenthal, Hamilton, Bingham,
Solar/., Whalen, the Chairman of
the Senate Foreign Affairs Com-
'mittee Foreign Relations
Committee, and to many others.
It owes just as much to the
patient perseverance of The
Business Roundtable, the Anti-
Defamation League, the
American Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress, as
well as other groups."

JDC Spokesman Reports Upsurge In Leo Mindlin
Jewish Education in Europe Saudis' Time Magazine Budget
"There are today more pupils in
Jewish day schools in Western
Europe than at any time before or
since World War II," noted
Stanley Abramovitch, Education
director of the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee,
which funded in part the Jewish
Federation of South Broward's
Combined Jewish AppealI srae'
Emergency Fund campaign.
Addressing more than a dozer
religious leaders and Jewish
educators in the offices of the
JDC, Abramovitch added:
"Most day schools have a
waiting list. They could increase
their enrollment if they had more
space."
KEY ISSUES, he said, are the
need to improve and enlarge
educational facilities, increase
funds for maintenance and
overcome the critical shortage of
qualified Jewish educators.
In France, largest of the Jewish
communities in Western Europe,
Abramovitch reported significant
progress. About 7,000 children
attend full time Jewish day
schools. The Fonds Social Juif
Unifie. the Consistoire, Alliance
Israelite Universelle, Ozar
Hatorah, Lubavitch and ORT are
expanding and improving their
programs, he said.
The upsurge in Jewish
education has penetrated wide
sections of the French leadership,
Abramovitch said. The FSJU
and the Jewish Agency have
agreed to set up a multi-million
dollar fund to double the
enrollment in Jewish day schools.
A number of new schools have
been opened by groups and by
individuals from North Africa,
many of them with the aid of
Ozar Hatorah. These include new
schools in Nice and Marseilles,
yeshivas in Heggenheim and
Rancy and yeshivas for
university students in
Strasbourg and Marseilles.
THE ALLIANCE has two
schools and teacher training
programs. ORT has a number of
vocational schools and is starting
a new program in Toulouse called
"Torah Umlacha," professional
training and Jewish education.
The Lubavitcher education
program has expanded the girls
school outside Paris. The
Maimonides School in Paris has
launched a multi-million dollar
rebuilding project and other
schools are either remodeling,
rebuilding or erecting new
facilities.
Reports Widespread Interest
Throughout Western Europe
Abramovitch reported that the
same heightened interest in
Jewish education was evident
throughout Western Europe.
Stockholm has a primary day
school with 175 students with the
graduates going on to govern-
ment secondary schools.
Copenhagen has the oldest
Jewish day school in Europe. Ten
years ago the Jewish community
of about 6,000 was worried abou
the constant drop in enrollment,
Abromovitch said. "The
enrollment stands today at its
highest ever in the last twenty-
five years, 390 children."
THE COMMUNITY has a
corps of teachers, all of them
Danish born, who were trained in
Israel. The Chief Rabbi is ab>o
Danish born. So is his assistant
who was trained in Israel on a
Rothchild-Joint Distribution
Committee scholarship.
Two schools in Brussels have a
combined enrollment of 760
students and both are expanding
their premises to accomodate still
more. The schools in Antwerp are
also expanding.
The primary school and kin-
dergarten in Amsterdam have
moved into a new building ans a
secondary school is waiting for
its own new building to be
completed.
IN SPAIN the cornerstone was
laid for a new school building in
Madrid. The Barcelona com-
munity operates a primary day
school in a rented building.
In milan, Italy, there are about
1,000 pupils in the Jewish school,
of a Jewish population of 9,500.
Another 800 attend Jewish
schools in Rome, which has
16,000 Jews. The smaller
communities, Florence, Turin,
Livorno and Genoa, still
maintain small day schools
despite a declining Jewish
population and a shortage of staff
and funds.
Jewish Education Holding Own
In M oelim Lands
Referring to Jewish education in
North Africa and the Middle
East, Abromovitch reported that
Jewish education was more than
holding its own. In Morocco he
said the Jewish school had and
enrollment of close to 5,000
students in a stable population.
EVEN THOUGH the Jewish
population remains stable, he
said, the school population is
bound to decrease year by year as
the graduates of secondary
schools leave Morocco and there
are few Jewish births to replenish
the school population. There are
three school groups, all sup-
ported by the Joint Distribution
Committee, functioning in
Morocco, the Alliance Israelite
Universells, Ozar Hatorah and
the Lubavitch.
The small community of
Tunisia, some 6,000 Jews, still
has 800 children in Jewish
schools, maintained mainly by
the Lubavitch.
In Iran the Jewish day schools
have a combined enrollment of
about 8,500 almost equally
divided among the Ozar Hatorah
schools, the schools of the
Alliance Israelite Universells and
the Iraqi and community schools.
When the Iranian Government
nationalized the elementary
schools several years ago it
guaranteed the status of private
schools. The Jewish schools have
thus maintained their autonomy.
REPORTING ON Jewish
education for Russian tran-
smigrants in Rome, Abramovitch
said that the JDC ORT has
expanded the program of English
studies and increased the time
being devoted to Jewish
education. The JDC, in
cooperation with the Jewish
Agency in Israel has opened a
club for lectures, films and
discussions on Jewish topics and
has opened a library with
Russian language books on
Jewish topics.
Also, a full time day school has
been proposed for children up to
the age of 17 in Ostia, outside
Rome. The curriculum will in-
clude English language in-
struction and a full program of
Jewish studies so that the
children can be in a school setting
while their families wait for as
long as four to six months until
the various emigration processes
to the United States and other
countries are completed.
When the full time Jewish day
school gets into full swing,
Abramovitch said, the JDC will
bring in a team of educators from
Israel who will be assisted by
volunteer university students
from the United States.

Flagler Federal
Opens New Branch
Flagler Federal Savings and
Loan Association celebrated the
grand opening of its new
Hollywood office on Wednesday,
June 22. The new office is Flagler
Federal's fifteenth and is located
at the Hollywood Mall, two
blocks west of 1-95 on Hollywood
Boulevard.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and
entertainment by Don Goldie's
Dixieland Band launched the
morning activities.
The ribbon, made up of $20
bills, was given to local nonprofit
organizations.
The special two-week promotion
was marked by free ice cream
cones at Baskin-Bobbins next to
Flagler Federal, gifts for new
accounts such as international
cheese packages, fondue and
crepe makers, baskets of gourmet
cheeses and wine and a weekend
for two at Marco Island.
Ted Wertheimer will manage
the branch. He is a twenty-five
year veteran of the saving and
loan business.
Special grand-opening hours for
the new Hollywood office are
Monday through Thursday, 9
a.m. to 4 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to
8 p.m.: and Saturday, 10 a.m. to
1 p.m.
The instrumental music for this
occasion was made possible by
funds supplied by the Recording
Companies of America through
the Music Performance Trust
Funds,a public service
organization created under
agreements with the American
Federal of Musicians. The grant
was obtained through the
auspices of Performing Arts of

law because the crossed Arab
swords with the unlikely palm
tree growing out of its juncture
presumably gets neatly around
that and so sh/ly fills the maga-
zine's greedy coffers by decep-
tion. How does Time make them
kosher?
They begin with a picture of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
holding forth a hand of friendship
to King Abdulaziz al Saud
aboard the USS Augusta in
February, 1945, a sort of
Alexander Knox loving it up with
Peter O'Toole. Who did not love
Franklin? How can we do any
less today?
SOMETHING must have
happened in the intervening 32
years to frustrate the promise
proposed in the photo that is
sepia-toned to sentimentalize the
anguish that always enshrouds
unfulfillment, again presumably
those nasty Israelis, whom
Franklin would not have liked
either.

according to Robert Arquilla,
NAHB president.
Hence, how can we not love the
Saudis, too?
Particularly when in Pages 44-
52 there is a special message to us
here in our own community
relating to how Saudi Arabia
helps "medium and small firms,
as well as the majors" in the
U.S., including $1 million in
orders to a small Florida-based
firm, which of course goes un-
named.
HOW MARVELOUS are the
wonders that the Saudis have
been pumping out of the depths
of their oil-laden lands. Not only
do they help themselves; they
help us, too, who haven't seen a
balanced budget, let alone a S10
billions surplus, in Lord knows
when. Under these circum-
stances, forget the cost of gas.
How can it possibly matter?
My own obsession with all of
this is just how much of that un-
accounted for $16.5 billion in
expenditures Pages 44-52 of the
June 6 edition of Time Magazine
cost the Saudis. For certainly, all
of that balderdash was a paid
advertisement, whether so
marked or not.
But as to things budgetary, it
must have been no mean sum,
and since Radio Riyadh the other
day was waxing so eloquent on
the Saudi exchequer, how come
they failed to list this mighty
work, too?
Never mind the outlays for
defense. Forget the cost of roads,
railway and airport expansion
programs. I can pretty much
figure this stuff myself.
I WANT to know how much
Time skimmed off the top of the
barrel for all that oil they let the
Saudis spread across Pages 44-52
of their June 6 edition.
Not that it was any skin off
Time's back to publish so mighty
a fabrication, since like
everything else in the magazine,
Pages 44-52 are a wondrous work
of fiction, "vast and trunkless
legs of stone" that "Stand in the
desert Half sunk, a
shattered visage.'"

What West Faced At Belgrade
Among recent U.S. studies
of Soviet international stra-
tegies is- "Soviet Shadow Over
Africa," published by the
Center for Advanced Inter-
national Studies at the
University of Miami. Its
authors are Walter F. Hahn,
of the Institute for Foreign
Policy Analysis, Cambridge,
Mass.; and Alvin J. Cottrell of
Georgetown University's
Center for Strategic and
International Studies. This is
the second in a three-part
summary of the Hahn-Cottrell
report reproduced in To The
Point International and sheds
light on just what the West is
facing in its Soviet adversary
at the Belgrade conference.
Soviet-Russian writers contend
that the former metropolitan
powers "continue to dominate
the resources of the emerging
states.'' In fact, Moscow charges
that the exploitation by the West
has not diminished "but in-
creased in many instances." In
castigating the West for its
alleged expolitation of the
developing nations, the Soviet
Union singles out the multi-
nationals, driven by the desire for
super-profits, who unleash not
only economic wars, but "real hot
wars" whenever they think their
interests are in jeopardy.
The Russians currently see the
struggle of the emerging nations
as in a "new phase." The critical
factor, in the Soviet Union's
opinion, is recognition by all
developing states that the
growing scarcity of oil and raw
materials gives them leverage
over the West, while the Soviet
Union and the "socialist com-
munity" provides an "economic
partner" alternative while
Russian power imposes con-
straints on the West's freedom of
action.
THIS BELIEF in the inevita-
bility of conflict between the
Industrial consumer nations of
the West and the raw material
producing countries of the Third
World is a logical feature of
Marxist thought.
In Moscow's preception, the
"basic contradictions in the old
Anolysk
system of economic relations
between imperialism and the
developing countries were clearly
manifested in unprecedented
foreign trade and monetary-
financial conflicts countries."
Clearly, the Soviet Union is
doing all it can to intensify this
conflict. The Russians remind
their audiences that trade in raw
support in creating a "new world
economic order" which "provides
for a radical restructuring of
world economic ties, eliminating
unequal exchanges, insuring
equitable participation of the
developing states in resolving
monetary-financial problems,
establishing control over the
activity of multinational cor-
porations, a fair redistribution of
material, financial and technical
resources," says Tass, the official
Soviet news agency.
They have singled out Africa
as a particularly promising
spearhead against Western
AskaBe
ByaBehaipean
By ABE HALPERN
Question: I have read with great interest your
answer to the question of the significance of
number three as it appears so many times in our
Liturgy and Scriptures. Can you enlighten me as
to whether there is any significance to the number
seven which is also mentioned many times in our
Liturgy and Scriptures?
Leo J. Cohen
Tamarac, Florida
Answer: Number seven is the most prominent
number in the Hebrew Bible. It appears more
than five hundred times.
The Legends of the Jews by Louis Ginzberg has
the following sentence: "The significance of the
number seven in Jewish legend may be seen by
referring to the index..." (vol. 6, p. 9) The index
contains more than four hundred references to the
number seven.
THE QUESTION arises, is the significance of
the number seven due to the fact that it appears
so many times in the Bible, Liturgy and Legend,
or is this fact due to some other significance of the
number seven apart from its prominence in our
Scriptures? Which came first, the chicken or the
egg?
The first reference to number seven appears at
the end of the creation story. "And on the
seventh day God finished the work which He has
been doing, and He ceased on the seventh day
from all the work which He had done. And God
blessed the seventh day and declared it holy,
! because on it God ceased from all the work of
creation which He had done." (Genesis 2:2,3)
All authorities agree that the institution of the
Sabbath is part of the cosmic plan and therefore
intended for all humanity. The Sabbath con-
secrates work and hallows man's life. The Sab-
bath is specifically a Jewish contribution to
human civilization.
ISRAEL ZANGWILL said, "The Sabbath is
the hub of the Jew's Universe; to protect it is a
virtue; to love it is a liberal education."
Isaac Nissenbaum said, "The Sabbath is the
vessel that contains the soul of Judaism."
Abraham Joshua Heschel, in the prologue of his
book on the Sabbath, equates time with the
spiritual values of life, and space with the
material things. "To understand the teaching of
the Bible one must accept its premise that
time... has a significance and sovereignty of its
own...
"JUDAISM IS a religion of time aiming at the
sanetification of time... The meaning of the
Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space.
Six days a week we live under the tyranny of
thing of space; on the Sabbath we try to become
attuned to holiness in time. It is a day on which
we are called upon to share in what is eternal in
time, to turn from the results of creation to the
mystery of creation; from the world of creation to
the creation of the world." (The Sabbath, Its
Meaning for Modern Man pp. 3-10)
In addition to the weekly cycle culminating with
the Sabbaththe seventh day of
creation following are just a tew of the many
items governed by seven relevant to Judaism and
modern Jewish life.
The Passover Festival. "You shall observe
the Feast of Unleavened Breadeating
unleavened bread (Matzot) for seven days as
I have commanded you..." (Exodus
23:15)
The seven week period between Passover
and Shavuot. Forty-nine days, 7x7.
At a wedding ceremony, following the
placing of the ring on the bride's finger and
the recitation of the traditional "Harey aht"
etc., "Behold you are consecrated to me with
this ring according to the law of Moses and
Israel," seven blessings are pronounced.
At a traditional wedding ceremony the
bride circles the groom seven times.
The Menorah, the seven branched can-
delabrum which burned perpetually in the
tabernacle in the wilderness and in the First
and Second Temples is the official emblem of
the State of Israel. After the destruction of
the Second Temple, the Menorah was taken
to Rome by Vespasian and is portrayed on
the Arch of Titus.
The Menorah became one of the most
familiar symbols, and is frequently found in
Synagogue decorations, on tombs, etc. The
South Broward Jewish Federation uses it on
its letterhead and other printed material.
"In Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism), the
Menorah symbolized the tree of life and its
seven branches were held to represent the
plants, the firmaments, and the days of
creation." (The Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Religion, p. 258)
There are seven qualifications for choosing
judges. Jethro counselled Moses to use the
following criteria. They should be men who
are possessed of 1) wisdom, 2) fear of God,
3 (modesty, 4) hate of covetousness, 5) love of
truth, 6) love of humanity, and 7) a good
name. (Legend of the the Jews by Louis
Ginzberg, vol. 3, p. 68)
All authorities agree that it is not certain when
and how the seventh daythe Sabbathbecame
the holy day of Israel. Nor have I been able to
locate a source clarifying the significance of the
number seven other than what I quoted above. If
any reader of this column has any additional
information please communicate with me and I
will share the information in a future column.
It is interesting to note that the opening sen-
tence of the Hebrew Bible in the original Hebrew,
consists of seven words. "B'raisheet barah
Elohim et hashamayim v'et haaretz" (In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth).
(Genesis 1:1)

economic interests.
According to the official
government newspaper, Izvestia,
"the situation which has
developed in Africa has called
into question the continued
existence of the Continent as a
materials, particularly fuel in
recent years is the epicenter of
the crisis shocks and the weakest
link in the system of capitalist
international economic relations.
MOSCOW encourages the
developing nations to pursue the
"non-capitalist road" and lessen
their dependence on the in-
dustrial West by nationalization
of their resources and redirection
of their economic alignment
patterns. The Soviet Union
assures the Africans of its
storehouse of cheap raw
materials for the imperialist
monopolies." Although the U.S.
is still trying to "keep Africa a
raw material reserve and market
outlet for the monopolies and...
extend political domination to
the Continent using neo-
colonialist methods.. .it is not so
easy for the imperialists to
achieve their objectives.
THE RUSSIANS have thus
sought to encourage all raw ma-
terial-producing countries to
institute measures along the lines
so successfully followed by the oil
producers. Soviet spokesmen
have called, in particular, for
developing countries generally to
resort to nationalization of their
resources and cration of cartels to
control prices. They have noted
with approval that nations are
following the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries'
(OPEC) example, raising the
prices on their exports of
minerals and agricultural raw
materials and food items.
Within the framework of
analysis, their observation that
the Third World constitutes a
huge deposit of mineral resources
and other natural wealth takes on
special meaning with respect to
Africa: "Africa holds a leading
position in the world both in
reserves and output of many
kinds of raw materials...The
deposits of the minerals in Arica *
are indeed unique." *
A Pravda article pointedly em-
phasized the stakes for the U.S.
"In U.S. imports, the share of
strategic raw materials imported
from Africa amounts to 100
percent of the industrial
diamonds. 58 percent of the
uranium, 44 percent of the man-
ganese, which is used in the steel
smelting industry, 36 percent of
the cobalt essential for aircraft
engines and high-strength alloys,
33 percent of its oil and 23 ,-
percent of its chromium used in
the manufacture of armor, air-
craft engines and gun barrels."
ACCORDING to a leading
authority on Soviet-African
affairs. E. A. Tarabin, in a
projection of annual deliveries of
African raw materials to the
West by 1980, the Wests depen-
dence on Africa for certain raw
materials will increase.
He predicts, for example, that
deliveries of chromites (from
South Africa and Rhodesia) will
increase from 1.9 million tons in
1970 to four million tons in 1980:
of iron ore (from Liberia, Mauri-
tania and South Africa) from 57.8
million tons in 1970 to 80 million
tons in 1980; of copper (from
Zambia, South Africa and Zaire)
from 1.28 tons in 1970 to 2.5
million tons in 1980.

SYNOPSIS Of THE WEEKLY TOR AH PORTION
Balak

"And Balaam saw Israel and said: How
goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, thy dwellings, O Israel"
(Num. 24.2-5).
BALAK Hearing of the Israelites' victory over the
Amontes, Balak, king of Moab, became frightened.
Jointly with the elders of Midian, he sent messengers to
Balaam, the son of Beor, urging him to curse Israel
Balaam was both a soothsayer and a prophet, and it was
believed that his curse would lead to the defeat of the
Israelites. But Balaam, hearkening to the voice of God
twice refused to accompany Balak's messengers on the
hostile mission. Finally God said to Balaam: "Go with the
men; but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that
thou shalt speak' (Numbers 22.35). En route to Balak, an
angel warned Balaam. When he arrived, he had Balak
build seven altars and make appropriate sacrificial of-
ferings preliminary to Balaam's cursing Israel. But when
the tune came, Balaam gave the Israelites his blessing
instead of his curse. This reversal was repeated three
U1T16S.
Moabite and Midianite women seduced some of the
Israelites, persuading them to worship the idol Baal of
Peor. As a result, a plague broke out in the Israelite camp.

been reserved for the Air Force.
THIS LED to friction between
the various branches of the
Armed Forces frictions which
might be understandable, but
must not be permitted to make a
chink in our armor (especially
since the Air Force was treated
more than considerately when it
was decided to equip it with the
expensive MRCA fighter plane.
But these difficulties are no
longer spoken of at the Bonn
Ministry of Defense. What is
spoken of, however and with
some justification is the fact
that the Army has at last
achieved its advance into the
third dimension owing to the
introduction of the new
helicopter.
There can be no doubt that a
helicopter is at a considerable
advantage vis-a-vis a surface-
bound anti-tank system. The
chopper operates at an altitude of
between one and ten meters, it
can hover over a specific point,
take aim and fire and then change
its position very swiftly.
ITS maneuverability permits it
to make use of every contour of
the terrain in escaping radar
detection. Its speed of 200 kph
lends it superiority over any
tank.
The PAH-1 can be directed by

Hearing Loss is not
a Sign of Old Age
Chicago, IIIA free offer of spe-
cial interest to those who hear but
do not understand words has been
announced by Beltone. A non-
operating model of the smallest
Beltone aid of its kind will be
given absolutely free to anyone
answering this advertisement.
Send for this non-operating
model, put it on and wear it in the
privacy of your own home. While
many people with a hearing loss
will not receive any significant
benefit from any hearing aid, this
non-working model will show you
how tiny hearing help can be, and
it's yours to keep, free. The actual
aid weighs less than a third of an
ounce, and it's all at ear level, in
one unit.
These models are free, so we
suggest you write for yours now.
Again, we repeat, there is no cost,
and certainly no obligation. Thou-
sand have already been mailed, so
write today to Dept. 9870, Beltone
Electronics Corp., 4201 W. Vic-
toria, Chicago, III. 60646.
wherever the enemy is massing
its armored spearhead.
The anti-tank helicopter can
traverse even fairly long
distances at about eight times
the speed of any motorized unit.
With it the strategy of flexible
response gains in credibility.
ALAS, this is a costly bird. If
the defense of the Federal
Republic of Germany were a
purely national matter there
would be no objection to the fact
that the new Army weapon has
been developed and financed by
the German taxpayer.
Begin to Meet
Carter in
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS-(JTA)-Dr. Eliahu
Ben Elissar, a close associate of
Likud leader Menachem Begin,
said at a press conference here
that Begin will go to Washington
in July for talks with President
Carter and will raise new ideas for
solving the Middle East conflict.
"Up till now diplomatic ini-
tiatives generally stemmed from
Washington or Cairo. From now
on Jerusalem will launch new
diplomatic initiatives," Elissar
said. But he refused to say what
those initiatives might be.
HE FORECAST that the
Geneva peace conference would
reconvene later this year,
probably in November or Decem-
ber. He said that a Palestinian
delegation would be barred from
participating in any form
whatever.
Elissar, who is regarded as a
Likud spokesman, is in Paris on
what he called a semi-private
visit. He said Likud would try to
communities throughout the
world and planned to convene a
world conference of Jewish com-
munities shortly for that pur-
pose.
The Likud victory in Israel's
parliamentary elections has
disturbed many prominent
members of the French-Jewish
community.
ONE OF them. former
Socialist Minister Daniel Mayer,
has resigned from the board of
the bi-weekly publication of the
French Zionist Federation, 1m
Tern Retrouve, (The Re-Found
Land) and announced that he will
discontinue the column he has
been writing for the last six
years.
"People read my column to
know my views, but what should
I do if the new Israeli govern-
ment adopts policies which I con-
demn? To pay no attention is out
of the question. To denounce
such possible policies would
strengthen Israel's enemies who
could say that even an uncon-
ditional pro-Israel supporter
opposes such or such a move,"
Mayer wrote in his final column.
In this case, too. Defense
Minister Georg Leber was unable
to prevail on the NATO partners
to standardize their weapons
although everybody is speaking
of standardization as a must.
The production of the
helicopter will of course secure
German jobs. But it would have
been economically more sound for
ithe Alliance as a whole and for
each individual NATO country to
have agreed on a standardized
helicopter system. But national
egotism has once more won the
day.
AT THE same time the
American Seventh Army is being
equipped with its own anti-tank
helicopter, which can fire French-
made remote-controlled rockets,
each worth 35.000 deutschmarks.
In view of this, it would be
understandable for the Bundes-
tag's Budget Committee to have
doubts about the viability of the
PAH system, estimated to cost
well over four million deutsch-
marks.
