[Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County
lies ahead for us in the
rttempt an answer on a
ride scale would be folly. I
[prophet and do not know
ure shape of America, of
or the world, or the
ges varying circumstances
ose upon us. What I do
Is that as an organized
nity, we must be in a
to respond effectively
Itelligently to whatever
land to lay such plans as
lost likely satisfy the
ges that come our way. To
bre is to indulge in
s: to do less is to renege
responsibility.
Federation is the
ed body of the vast
ly of American Jewry. As
M Decade
such, it attempts to speak on its
behalf and with one voice. That
does not mean that within its
structure there will always be
unanimity far from it. We have
our varying opinion and
ideologies, but we are united in a
basic premise all of us most
want to make Jewish life here and
everywhere rich and meaningful.
To this end, we will want to
strengthen Jewish life in Pinellas
county we will want to secure a
strong, vibrant, and healthy
Israel we will want to assist
Jews in all parts of the world and
last but not least, we will want
pinellas county to enrich its
human and material potential so
that it gives to all its citizens a
maximum measure of access to
its inherent potential, and in the
world at large remain a vigorous
advocate of human rights.
Priority Education
Progressive assimilation is our
chief enemy and the raising of
knowledge; an awareness of the
glories of Jewish history as well
as of the ever-present dangers of
anti-Semitism which once
resulted in the Holocaust.
We will face an erosion of
funding for a variety of reasons.

I been instructed to
their efforts to the
la of the conference
not succumb to
;rsion by outside
to politicize the
fence over the issue of
tinian women. The
with which the U.S.
it ion is to concern
are better health
lices, expanded
Lion and increased
^yment.
R. Landa, immediate
(resident of the National
of Jewish Women
and a member of
;nt Carter's Advisory
Committee for Women, has been
named to the U.S. delegation.
Landa said that the official U.S.
position is "to keep the con-
ference focused on the sub-
stantive issues" and "to discuss
them from the perspective of
women of the whole world."
THE PROBLEM of the
Palestinian women's issue comes
as result of the United Nations
General Assembly voting on a
document calling for the addition
of three issues to be discussed at
the conference: apartheid,
Palestinian women and refugees.
As these additions were agreed
upon by the General Assembly,
the removal of any one is also
under its jurisdiction. According
to Landa, the Assembly will not
convene before the conference,
and even if it did, its members
would probably not agree to
combine the Palestinian women's
issue with that of refugees in
general.
The Palestinian document
itself was prepared by the
Economic Commission for
Western Asia, a section of the
United Nations Economic and
Social Council that has admitted
the Palestine Liberation
Organization into full mem-
bership and has excluded Israel.
AT A State Department-
sponsored meeting late last
month in Washington, Chiae
Herzig, co-president of the
Women's Division of the
American Jewish Congress,
spoke on behalf of the Leadership
Conference of National Jewish
Women's Organizations
Referring to the document which
used language condemning
Israel, Herzig said, "not only
Israel but the rights of women
everywhere are victimized by
these tactics."
She continued by pointing out
that "delegates subject to Arab-
Soviet influence will come

UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) The Security
Council resumed its debate
on Jerusalem and heard
various Arab speakers
denouncing Israel and
warning that Israel's
intentions in regard to
East Jerusalem can
provoke a war between the
Jewish State and the whole
Islamic world.
Abdalla Yaccoub Bishara, Ku-
wait's UN Ambassador, warned
that if Prime Minister Menachem
Begin of Israel moved his office
to East Jerusalem it would set off
a religious confrontation between
Islam and Judaism. It would be
like the religious wars of nine
centuries ago, he said. He
claimed that there could be no
peace in the Mideast until
Moslem rule is returned to
Jerusalem.
THE KUWAITI envoy also
warned that the flow of oil to the
West is in jeopardy unless the
Palestinian problem is resolved.
He called on the U.S. government
to make clear its position on
Jerusalem.

a member of the powerful
?n Relations Committee
chairman of the important
sub-committee on Near-
fern and South-Asian affairs.
In a short talk before his
supporters. Stone likened the
campaign to a marathon race, in
that there were so many can-
didates and the campaign
spanned so many months.
According to Stone, who has a 96
percent attendance record in the
Senate, the major issues this year
are inflation, unemployment,
energy and the crisis in Iran. In
an exclusive interview with The
Jewish Floridian, he was asked if
he thought that OPEC policies
were linked to a settlement be-
tween Israel and Egypt. The
Senator stated that in his opinion
OPEC operated primarily on a
commercial basis, with politics
added as trimming.
J

Senator Richard Stone
If we combat OPEC on that
commercial basis, the politics
would "take care ot itself," he
said. The Senator believes that
"we must stimulate additional
production of oil and gas in non-
OPEC countries, and that the
United States must have a
meaningful energy conservation
program."
When asked about the further-
ing of oil development in Israel,
Stone was optimistic. He
revealed that a recent geological
survey done in Israel by a
retiring chief geologist for Exxon
indicated the probability of major
oil reserves both on and off shore.
Senator Stone expressed con-
fidence that the Israelis would
help supply the United States in
gratitude" for U.S. support of
Israel.
Sen. Stone has been a member
of the Senate since January, 1975
and has worked diligently for an
open government. In fact, he had
his Senate office door removed to
symbolize his commitment to a
"government in the sunshine."
Stone grew up in Miarnj, and
graduated from Harvard
University and the Columbia
University School of Law. He is
married to the former Marlene
Singer and has three children,
Nancy, Amy, and Elliot. The
Stone family resides in Miar/i'.

'Future Rests in Understanding One Another'
Continued from Page 1
We must attempt to halt this
erosion and confront our people
with their ongoing respon-
sibilities.
We will be more highly mobile
and, therefore, accepted com-
munal relationships will suffer
considerable strain. This means
that Federation will have to be
more flexible even as our local
community organizations will
have to be able to' respond more
quickly to circumstances that
change more rapidly than ever
before.
Federation should continue to
give to its religious affairs
committee a growing importance,
primarily in the realm of in-
terfaith relations.
With Dignity and
Shalom B'Bayit
In doing so, one is not only, or
even primarily, struck by the
characteristics and element
which set us apart different
synagogue affiliations, mem-
bership in the preponderance of
dedicated men's and women's
community organizations much
more so, one is struck by that
which is shared and common to
all ... The desire to live in
dignity and peace with the family
of the Federation; the need for
identity and respect as in-
dividuals and as members of
particular community groups;
the aspirations for a better future
for ourselves and our children.
These ideals and values must
bind us as human beings, as
citizens of a common Federation;
as Jews; as Americans.
All Jewish organizations make
much of our differences, of our
uniqueness. of our distinc-
tiveness in this county, whether
in the context of geographic
regionalism or in the context of
cultural pluralism, or national
and to take a global perspective one thing very clear-1 cannot be a
in terms of how such interests
serve the Jewish community in
general.
Federation The Instrument
of the Total Community
As a professional represen-
tative in this county, I feel very
strongly that our future as a
community rests in our ability,
not so much to reconcile our
differences, be these related to
geography or ethno-cultural
group affinity, but, far more
importantly, to respect, to know
and to understand one another,
and, as a result, to accommodate
one another with all the integrity
we can command. If we are to be
successful in the latter, it is
essential that we remove the
barriers which divide us as a
community and that together we
assist one another in achieving
our fullest potential, whether as
individuals or as community
groups.
For me. Federation means that
everyone in Pinella- County is
afforded the opportunity to
participate to the fullest potential
in the further development of this Hi"T" ine "? ouJ
Federation. We all know that this d V"" TZZ&'iZf "P 5
ot us to respect and even to
celebrate one another's
professional who attempts to deal
with all of the problems of the
cultural groups in Pinellas. To
attempt to do so would be to
shortchange you and others.
What I will do and I give
you my guarantee of this is to
the very best of my ability, make
our Federation the instrument of
the Jewish community of
Pinellas, the catalyst from which
will flow a ceaseless amount of
effort directed to the continued
expansion of our services and
growth of our community.
All Jewish Group.
Must Grow
Turning to my mandate where
I operate directly as executive
director, I am not restricted
nor would I accept such a
restriction to providing
support and my assistance only
for the agencies of Federation. A
much more important dimension
of my mandate is that of
promoting and ensuring a climate
in w hich a 11 of the Pinellas Jewish
groups can grow and flourish.
Within the context of our
to or end in the dominance of one equally enriching. All commu^.
group's majority, in the sub- members much look upon the
ju gat ion of our personal iden-
in the assimilation of all
is not the case today. Major
effort has to be expended during
the next few years. We have to
develop a true feeling and spirit
of community which Will enable
us as a Federation to face the
challenges of the future. This
spirit of community can only be
made to thrive by ensuring that
we do not threaten one another's
identity, whether such identity
may be of religious or
organizational differences or of
other circumstances.
The last few decades have been
referred to as having belonged to
the "me too'' generation The
fragmentation this attitude has
brought about, will not serve us
well in a world which increasingly
is forced to recognize the com-
plexity and interdependency of
uniqueness. The Jewish story
does not inevitably have to lead
titles,
different cultural groups in our
society. If it should, much of the
life's breath of this county will
have been stilled. We would end
up in a Jewish cultural wilderness
in which we would be condemned
to wander, forever shamed and
forever marked as not having
been worthy of our inheritance.
Multi -Organization
Society
If. on the other hand, we
assume the heritage of our
historical development as a
nation, if we accept that the
nature of our society is that of an
immigrant society to which
inhabitants have come from all
corners of the globe to celebrate
life, each in their own way, then
we cannot but help recognize
ourselves in the faces of our
fellow men and acknowledge one
another in a spirit of
brotherhood. Pinellas, as a multi-
organizational society, could
become the envy of the state, if
only we cared deeply for one
another.
The differences in your ranks
are enriching. The differences in
the Pinellas County society are
differences as assets, as a hua,
resource capital to build upon
the future.
To all thoae who have ben I
recently elected to the board A
the Jewish Federation of Pinellail
County. I extend m,
congratulations for the respect
and trust given to you by thj
members of your community
Your responsibility is a sacred]
trust not only to thoae who have I
nominated and elected the board I
but also to the generations oi
Jews who will come after you 1
harvest what you sow.
I consider it a great honour to
have the opportunity to soon I
commence work with Madam 1
President Reva Kent and her
colleagues in an organization
which I am sure will reflect and
effectively apply itself to the |
concerns of the community.
I have always had great ai,
miration for thoae who car
enough to accept positions on
Federation boards, for their I
participation shows courage in [
spite of diversity, faithfulness to
ancient values and traditions,
and concern for the human I
condition of Pinellas County.
American-Soviet Conspiracy?
Deny Plan to Halt
W. German N-Activity
NEW YORK -
Allegations that the
Brazilian Jewish com-
munity is involved in an
"American Soviet con-
spiracy" to disrupt the
West German-Brazilian
nuclear technology-
document. Foxman said, was
that of Brazilian Senator Robert
Saturnino. who called it a
"ridiculous effort at intimidation
of those who oppose the nuclear
accord."
In addition, the newspaper
Folha de Sao Paulo carried an
article in its opinion column
declaring that attempts to im-
events and developments. The agreement have triggered nlirate ih. tJkh m;7J

and given our alligiance to. We
cannot cast our identities off like
garments or check it at the
border as old-country baggage.
But while we make much of our
diversity, we so seldom give
thought to our commonality as a
community, a people. And yet.
this is what has struck me more
than anything else when I study
thfl community dimension of this
county.
When 1 regard the aspirations
of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas, I perceive a sensitivity
to blend all community concerns
with those of the wider
Federation, whether in its
national or international
dimension. No doubt, this
sensitivity has been honed by
centuries of trials and
tribulations which the world
community of Jews has been
subject to. In some quarters, it
might be argued that this sen-
sitivity is a mere self-defense
mechanism to make community
survival possible. Whatever the
motivation, I would wish thai
more groups, if not all groups in
Pinellas and in the American
society, would be able to tran-
scend their narrow self-interests
too attitude to the problems
which confront us as members of
this and of the world Jewish
community.
I am concerned that we will
stop short of the ideal unless we
are able to make major
breakthroughs with reference to
effecting meaningful attitudinal
change.
We need to realize, however,
that the word "care" is the
bottom line of Federation
aspirations. Too often. I find it
sad to say. the world "allocation"
is considered to be the bottom
line.
I know that we have enough
cares within our own community
at home and abroad. The safety
and security of Israel our
historic home the intolerable
treatment of our fellow Jews
living under Soviet domination,
the precariousness of viable
Jewish community life in many
countries, the prevalence of anti-
Zionist forces in many corners of
the globe. These and other
Jewish facts of life would be
sufficient reason for a total
preoccupation with our own
concerns
In saying this, I wish to make

Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has revealed.
The charges against the Jews
were contained in a "confidential
document" issued by the
Brazilian government's Ministry
of Mines and Knergy, according
to the respected, middle-of-the-
road newspaper. Jornal de
Brasilia.
THE GOVERNMENT
document. the newspaper
reported in its June 6 edition,
attacked prominent Brazilian
scientists and political leaders
who oppose the nuclear accord
and singled out Jews as a "social
group that most actively com-
bats" the agreement. The
document further charged that
the anti-nuclear accord campaign
"had its origins with the U.S.A.
andU.S.S.R."
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's
associate national director and
head of its International Affairs
Division, said that, according to
information reaching ADL's
Latin American Department, the
newspaper story touched off a
furor in the press throughout the
country and among Brazil's
Jewish community.
The Jornal report said the
document, dated February 13.
I9K0, emanated from the
Ministry of Mines and Energy's
security and information branch
md was circulated among of-
ficials of Brazil's electric power
companies
days of Nazi Germany.
According to ADL. the
president of the Jewish Con-
federation of Brazil. Jose
Meiches. went on record
saying that whether or not the.
report is "official, its is incor ._
and inappropriate to identify the
Jewish community as the social
group most actively opposing the
nuclear program. The
representative bodies of the
Jewish community do not have,
and have never had. any official
or unofficial position on this
matter."
MEICHES ALSO denounced
those who desire "to create in-
ternal friction in Brazilian
society, particularly with the
Jewish community,"
To U.SL Mideast Policy
Stone Offers Amendments
WASHINGTON When
conferees from the House of
Representatives and Senate met
late in June to work out a final
version of next year's foreign aid
authorizations bill, they were
looking at several amendments
important to U.S. policy in the
Middle East.
The amendments were offered
by U.S. Sen. Richard Stone
(D.,Fla.| and accepted by the
Senate July 17. Because the
House version of the bill doesn't
contain the same language, it is
up to the conference committee to
decide whether the amendments
should become law.
THE FIRST one revokes
permission for General Electric to
sell eight gas turbine engines
that would have been installed in
four naval frigates being built for
Iraq in Italy. These frigates
would have helicopter gunships
on board and would operate in
the Persian Gulf and Straits of
Hormuz.

ever against acts of terrorism and
that our commercial sales policy
be fully cpnsistent with such
pronouncements. The grantir.gof
an export license for this sale
works exactly the opposj^e to all
of these goals."
BECAUSE THIS license was
issued without the knowledge of
the State Department or
Congress. another Stont
amendment passed which"
requires more extensive
notification of such licenses in the
future.
Another of the Senator's
amendments clears the way for
sales of military equipment to
Somalia under more favorable
terms, if that country grants
greater access to its military
facilities to the United States
The amendment would give the.
U.S. greater leverage in its
current negotiations with
Somalia over base rights.
Finally, the Senate agreed to
an amendment that allows

The Volunteer Committee has
helped in locating emergency

as office and clerical duties that
keep the agency aflow.

The fourth of July,
Independence Day, is a
good time to remind
ourselves of the principles
for which this country
stands: Freedom and
democracy. When all the
rhetoric is taken away,
Americans, Jews and non-
Jews, have supported the
State of Israel because of
Jewish State shares with
the U.S. common values
of democracy and justice.
Another Harry Truman?
History Has Final Say
There is a good possibility that Prime Minister
Menachem Begin will achieve a level of importance
in Israel's history that President Harry S Truman
achieved in the history of the United States.
We do not press the point. Begin's place is a
matter of speculation; Truman's is already assured.
But both men grasped the helm of their
country's rule under unusual circumstances
Truman on the death of President Roosevelt; Begin
in a stunning upset of the almost monolithic rule of
a seemingly bankrupt Labor Party that could not
overcome the fact that it was in power during
Egypt's successful sneak attack in the Yom Kippur
War of 1973.
Each man was pilloried while in office. Indeed,
Prime Minister Begins latest heart attack occurred
in the Knesset on Monday, just shortly before the
Chamber beat back a vote of no confidence in his
Likud coalition.
It was Truman whose stature emerged after he
left office his capacity to make unpopular
decisions, to call the shots as he saw them no matter
what the cost to his popularity.
The Maccabee Battle
This is precisely characteristic of Prime
Minister Begin today in a world whose "free"'
leaders and frank dictators have turned on Israel in
a frightening tidal wave of hatred. Less and less, do
we see this hatred as an aspect of OPEC's oil
stranglehold on the West. More and more, do we see
it as a return to the classical Western view of Jews
and Judaism in which, for the first time since the
carnage of World War II, there is clear anti-
Semitism at the core of the demand that Israel
withdraw, Israel become diminished, Israel concede,
Israel give up, Israel disappear off the face of the
earth.
Jerusalem, of course, is central to this the
Western view that it was okay for Moslems to hold
sway in Jerusalem, but Jewish ascendancy there is
verboten. It is precisely this attitude that the
Moslem East encourages in the West if for entirely
different reasons that the West is delighted to
oblige it.
It is precisely this attitude against which Prime
Minister Begin speaks out so eloquently, and it is
precisely for this reason that the world's leaders
can't wait to see him out of office.
Pilloried at home for the nations economic
woes and for his steadfast refusal to knuckle under
to Western-led intimidation and to preside over the
death of his country, Begin sounds more and more
like old Harry and acts more and more like him
every day.
It remains for history to have the final say.

On American Illiteracy
I JOIN those who mourn the
death of Harper's. I divorce
myself from the bulk of the mor-
ticians and the long list of their
causes explaining the magazine's
demise.
For many years now, to be
precise eight. I have been carry-
ing around an October, 1972 issue
of Harper's in my bag. I don't
know why that edition precisely.
It contains a delightfully satiric
piece on George McGovern by
Germaine Greer and part of a
novel then in progress by John
Barth.
THERE ARE. of course, other
goodies. But so has every other
Harper's in my memory con-
tained gems of achievement in
thought and creativity. And
that's what gets me about the
morticians and their list of causes
explaining the death of the
magazine. None of them men-
tions its excellence as the prin-
cipal reason for its demise.
I don't doubt that the nation's
financial precariousness has also
played a hand in the bleak pub-
lishing condition of its literary
enterprise. Or that the changing
profile of reader interest em-
braces newer and more spicy
horizons than magazines the likes
of Harper's ever had to offer.
But more to the point is ex-
cellence that has never wavered
and an endemic illiteracy seizing
us as a people that puts pub-
lications like Harper's into a
diminishing category of elitist
reader interest.
IT IS NOT that Harper's is
elitist in itself; it is that literacy
in our nation is becoming elitist
by default. Most of us can read
"c-a-t" and the like, but we are
tuned to a different form of com I
munication a communication
that is instant. Television, the
visual image, prepares for us'
what we ought to see and how w<
ought to see it.
Television, the visual image,,
chews it up for us, predigests it' I
feeds it to us in a way that I
suggests that information today
is a kind of junk food which we
experience like every other form I
of instant gratification to which
our computerized, electronic |
world is heir.
Understood in these terms,'
there is no need for us to be ablei
to read on a more complex level1
than "c-a-t." But what Harper,
served us up each month required
slow and patient reading, a sense
of joy in the slowness and
patience of language, careful con-
sideration of thoughts, and the
long and gratifying process,
thereafter of the mulling over of a
host of conclusions.
IN WHAT Harpers published,
there were not intermediary func-j
tionaries to do our readingT
thinking, concluding for us. It
required a disciplined, educated
mind: it required literacy
The obituary for Harper't is
not really for a publication so
much as it is for the American
people who have opportunities
today for becoming literate
beyond anything that could be
imagined 130 years ago when
Harper's first appeared on the
national scene.
And yet there was a need for
the magazine in 1850, the year of
its founding, when presumably
there were fewer opportunities for
literacy than there are today. By
definition, the demise of Har-
per's in 1980 shows that there is
no need for it today. The con-
clusion is morbid: opportunity
for literacy is irrelevant to its
achievement, precisely as the
history of man's intellectual
development clearly demon-
strates. Think, for example,
Abraham Lincoln.
INDEED, opportunity in this
context is no more than a code
word for our "modern" attempt
to apply the parameters of in-
stant gratification to the areas of
literacy and intellect precisely as

The Spotlight also makes ex-

of Congress particularly from
the Congressional Record but
without attribution to attract
a conservative readership and
enhance its bid for a respectable
image.
Simultaneously, it
disseminates an array of racist.
anti-Semitic propaganda
reflecting the prejudices of its
publisher. Liberty Lobby, a
Washington-based far-right
extremist organization. It is this
effort to camouflage the true
bigotry of its pages and to
deceive its readers that make The
Spotlight more insidious than
other publications of its kind -
and distinguishes it from the
cruder, more blatant hate sheets

LIBERTY LOBBY, headed by
Willis A. Carto, a long-time anti-
Semite and its founder and
treasurer, began publishing The
Spt>tlight in September, 1975. It
is distributed weekly by sub-
scription only, and readers are
urged to help increase dis-
tribution by ordering more than
one subscription. Subscribers do
not of course have to be members
of Liberty Lobby. According to
its Statement of Ownership.
Management and Circulation, the
1979 average weekly paid cir-
culation of The Spotlight was
Carlo's articles appear under
his own name and also under
several different pseudonyms. A
professed admirer of Hitler, he
made the following statement in
the 50s in a letter to an
associate: "Hitler's defeat was
the defeat of Europe. And Amer-
ica .. the blame must be laid at
the door of the international
Jews.
In his writings, he attacks
international bankers" a code
term for Jews and brands as a
lie the fact that six million Jews
perished at the hands of the
Nazis in the Holocaust.
CURTIS DALL. former sonin
law of Franklin D. Roosevelt
serves as Liberty Lobby's chair-
man and front man, while Carto
runs the organization. Like
Carto, Dall is a long-time anti-
Semite, whose hostility to Jews,
Zionists and Israel is expressed
in speeches, releases and pub-
lications. Books and pamphlets
by Dall bearing such titles as
"F.D.R., My Exploited Father-,
in-Law," "Israel's Five Trillior^
Dollar Secret" and "Who Con-
trols Our Nation's Federal
Policies And Why?" are dis-
tributed by Liberty Lobby and
advertised in The Spotlight.
Since it began publication. The
Spotlight has regularly featured
articles denying the reality of the
Holocaust and lionizing the so-
called revisionist authors of anti-
Holocaust books and pamphlets
Piece after piece declares that the
Nazi Holocaust was a fabrication
of the Zionists and the "Zionist
controlled press." that The Diary
of Anne Frank was a fraud, that
Auschwitz was merely a factory
for the manufacture of synthetic
fuel, that famous "gas chamber
victims" are alive and well, that
torture was used to make Ger-
mans "confess." and that bodies
were cremated to control typhoid
epidemics.
Attacks of this nature cul-^

'that the Institute for Historical
Review, a hitherto unknown
organization, was to sponsor a
"first-ever Revisionist Con-
vention," to be held in Los
Angeles the following Labor Day
weekend.
AT ITS conclusion, a
resolution was released declaring
"the whole theory of 'the
Holocaust" has been created by
and promulgated by political
Zionism for the attainment of
political and economic ends ."
An announcement was also
made that the Institute "would

by Frank Tompkins (one of

we do in all the areas of our con-
temporary hedonistic experience.
Clearly, it is an attempt that
has tailed, causing us to abandon
the search for literacy and intel-
lect and to substitute for them
the junk food of electronic in-
formation.
We have failed because we are
impatient with the slow and
demanding process of the intel-
lectual, non-hedonistic experience
and because neither intellect nor
literacy can be born out of the
modern gadgetry of technological
industry, computers for example,
to which we look for all our
panaceas. Only information can
be born that way, but it is a very
different thing. Information is
the lowest level of a finely-honed
mind.
NEITHER ARE literacy and
intellect a matter of a college
degree; too many college
graduates are among the most
illiterate people I have ever
known. Literacy is a state of
mind, an inquisitiveness, a rest-
less desire to learn and to un-
derstand.
There are doubtless things that
life's experience can sharpen. But
ultimately, they are nourished by
the written word studied in tran-
quility. The staccato report of a
TV news analyst delivered as an
antiphonal chorus to the clatter
of teletype machines is as foreign
to learning and understanding as
Americans have become to
magazines like Harper's.
I said before that the death of
Harper's is an obituary for the
American people. The bell tolls
for us.

Sarah Weddington, co-chairman
of the U.S. delegation along with
the U.S. Ambassador to the UN,
Donald F. McHenry, called the
document "very one-sided" and
added that the U.S. delegation
"will work with other delegations
jn opposing other resolutions
based on the language and
analysis in that document."
THE CONFERENCE s
divided into two sections: one
^composed of official delegations

Tountries as well as Non-
governmental Organizations
with consultative status at the
UN. The other is a forum, open to
anyone who wishes to attend.
The forum meets concurrently
with the governmental section
and provides the particpants
with workshops, exhibits and
discussions where anyone is free
to speak on any of the issues. It
does not, however, issue any
formal resolution or statements.
At present there are 700
American women registered for
the forum with several weeks still
remaining before the conference
begins. Among these are
representatives of various Jewish
organizations including NCJW,
Hadassah, American Jewish
congress and the American
Jewish Committee. Jewish

countries are also planning to

interests and to the average
citizen's detriment. In the
demonology peddled by Carto
and his organization, families like
the Rockefellers and policy-plan-
ning groups like the Trilateral
Commission are made to figure in
The Spotlight as conspirators,
behind whom, readers can infer,
stand the Jews.
LIKE CARTO and Dall, The
Spotlight asserts it is not anti-
Semitic but "anti-Zionist" a
disclaimer belied by its contents
and features. It carries advertise-
ments for pamphlets com-
municating its messages e.g.,
one attacking sex education,
published by the Christian De-
fense League, an avowedly anti-
Semitic group and another titled
"Zionist Lobby Exposed," by
Edward Fields, an anti-Jewish
activist-propagandist for three
decades and editor of the
National States Rights Party's
Thunderbolt.
The Spotlight also features ads
for anti-Semitic books and
pamphlets issued by Liberty
Library, an arm of Liberty
Lobby. Examples include
"Imperium" by Francis Parker
Yockey, a tribute to "the German
Revolution of 1933" dedicated to
Hitler, with an introduction by
Carto; "America First," a 40-
page anti-Israel diatribe blaming
the Jews for American involve-
ment in both World Wars; and
"The Dispossessed Majority" by
Wilmot Robertson, which is both
anti-Semitic and racist.
Also advertised in The Spot-
light and distributed by Liberty
Library are a number of books
denying the Holocaust: The
Hoax of the Twentieth Century
by A. R. Butz; The Myth of the
Six Million (anonymous); and
Debunking the Genocide Myth
by Paul Rassinier.
A SIMILAR series of Holo-
caust denials released by Noon-
tide Press, a Carto -influenced
"front" in Torrance, Calif., is also
promoted in Spotlight's pages
together with such anti-Semitic
classics as The Protocols of the
Learned Elders of Zion, The Plot
Against the Church by Maurice
Pinay, and The Plot Against
Christianity by Elizabeth Dilling.
The Sept. 10, 1979. Spotlight
carried a full-page advertisement
for Noontide's The Six Million
Reconsidered by William Grim-
stad, former managing editor of
White Power, a neo-Nazi
publication. Grimstad has
worked as a paid lobbyist for the
Saudi government.
The real danger of The Spot-
Ugh t lies in its effort to create an
image of respectability by high-
lighting issues of interest to
political conservatives while
simultaneously and sys-
tematically promoting anti-
Semitism and racism. Its self-
righteous logo asserts that it is
"The Newspaper You Can
Trust." To be sure, readers can
trust The Spotlight to
promote hate.

Agudath Israel Battles Against ERA
The regional Commission on Legislation and
Civic Action of Agudath Israel is spearheading
efforts to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment.
Under the leadership of its chairman, Rabbi
Chaim Dov Keller, the commission is working
with other opponents of the amendment, in-
cluding Phyllis Schlafley, the leader of the
national "Stop ERA Movement." The combined
efforts "resulted in a 102-71 vote in the Illinois
Mouse (it Representatives in favor of the ERA,
but fell five votes short of the majority of 107
needed for approval," according to Agudath
Israel.
Rabbi A. Stanley Dreyfus, of Brooklyn, N.Y.,
was installed as director of placement for the
Reform movement of Judaism and will serve as
successor lo Rabbi Malcolm Stern, who recently
retired from the position after 16 years of service.
The ceremony waa the concluding item of
business at the convention in Pittsburgh of the
Central Conference of American Rabbis, which
met last week for its 91st annual convention at
the William Penn Hotel.
The 68th annual convention of the National
Council of Young Israel, which ended in Ellen-
ville, N.Y., commended Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begin for his "courage" in moving the
Prime Minister's offices to the Old City of
Jerusalem.
The Young Israel delegates, representing over
160 branches and over a quarter of a million
members across the United States, reaffirmed
that "Jerusalem is and shall remain the eternal,
undivided capital of Israel," and called upon the
Carter Administration to recognize that fact by
relocating the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Congressman Dante Fascell (D.,Fla.) has
joined in signing a letter to Soviet Chairman
Leonid Brezhnev urging the Russian leader to re-
examine the cases of Jewish dissidents Iosif
Mendelevich, Yuri Federov, and Aleksie Mur-
zhenko.
The three are the last of the so-called Leningrad
Group who attempted to seize a plan 10 years
ago to escape the USSR by air after repeatedly
being refused exit visas for Israel. Seven others
have already been released.
Mendelevich is an Orthodox Jew. He refuses to
eat any non-kosher foods. His daily diet is
inadequate, and his health is rapidly
deteriorating. Federov and Murzhenko are
suffering from a variety of illnesses including
chronic bronchitis and tuberculosis.
"The review of these cases and the release of
the prisoners would signal to the nations of the
world that the Soviet Union has reaffirmed its
commitment to the Helsinki Final Act," Fascell
said.
The world's first true digital camera, integrated

Special $500 individual scholarships, to assist

students four in Israel and four Jewish
refugees in the United States have been
established as an enduring memorial to the late
Judge Murray I. Gurfein, it was disclosed by
Gaynor I. Jacobson, executive vice president of
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS).
Judge Gurfein, who died December 16, 1979 at
the age of 72, was president of HIAS, the
worldwide Jewish migration agency, now
celebrating its Centennial anniversary, in 1956-
1957 and 1960 through 1967.
Judge Gurfein was a prominent jurist.
Publicly, he is best remembered for his decision,
made while he was serving as Judge of the United
States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, to
reject the Nixon Administration's attempt to bar
the New York Times from publishing the famed
"Pentagon Papers" in 1971.
Emunah Women of America has lodged an
official protest with the government and the
General Services Administration for its sudden
action in dissolving the "Diamond Agreement"
between Israel and the United States without
"justification or cause."
In issuing the protest, Emunah National Vice
President for Public Affairs Toby Willig noted
that the abrupt termination of the "Diamond
Agreement," which enabled Israel to purchase
industrial diamonds at preferential prices, would
almost certainly create great economic upheaval
in a country where diamonds are the greatest
export industry.
"This inexplicable action by the General
Services Administration," charged Mrs. Willig,
"will cripple Israel economically and increase her
budget deficit. No reason has been offered for the
premature dissolution of the agreement, which
makes the action all the more incomprehensible."
Barbara K. Wiener, of Milwaukee, Wis., has
been elected 1981 national chairwoman of the

ship Cabinet.
The results of the recent election were an-
nounced by Paula Dubrow of New York City,
chairwoman of the Nominating Committee and a
member of the Cabinet Executive Committee.
Ms. Wiener, a current vice chairwoman and
member of the Executive Committee of the
Young Women's Leadership Cabinet, is

"a disaster."
Hauser, who has been
prominent in Republican politics
for a number of years, expressed
her views in an interview with Al
Krlick, associate editor of the
Jewish Exponent of Philadelphia.
She stressed that she was
speaking as an individual and not
as a representative of any
organization. Chairperson of the
Foreign Affairs Committee of the
American Jewish Committee and
a member of its Board of Gover-
nors, she was in Philadelphia to
address an A J Committee dinner.
SHE SERVED as U.S. rep-
resentative to the United Nations
Human Rights Commission
during the Nixon Adminis-
tration. In her present capacity,
she assists in formulating
positions for Reagan, the ap-
parent Republican Presidential
nominee, on such issues as the
UN, the Middle East and human
rights.
"Mrs. Hauser is convinced
that the foreign policy drift' on
the part of the U.S. is dangerous
to the State of Israel and to the
entire Western world," the
Exponent reported. "She con-
siders the Camp David accords
and the peace treaty between
Israel and Egypt as the onear of success in the Carter Adminis-l
t rat ion's foreign policy, but!
believes that this achievement]
has been dampened by an 1
inability to follow it up.
"A consistent U.S. positional
such issues as the Palestine lib-
eration Organization might ban'
brought forward a more moderated
Palestinian entity, she believes,"'
the Exponent said.
"INSTEAD OF clearly stating I
opposition to the PLO until it
changed its covenant and terror I
tactics, the U.S., according to
Mrs. Hauser, has sent conflicting
signals, convincing the most
extreme elements in the Mideast
that there is no reason to change
their position."
The Exponent quoted Hauser
as saying that "The current
settlement policy (of Israel) is a
disaster. It is provocative. You
just can't establish Jewish settle-
ments in places like Nablus and
Hebron. The sooner Begin is
replaced the better. His policies
are not accepted by Israelis; they
are dangerous policies."
She was quoted as saying
further, "Israel is a relatively
insignificant issue in the prob-
lems of the Western world.
Where is Israel if the West goes
down?"

this, he said, "does not constitute
under any circumstances a claim
to legitimize conquest, annexa-
tion and aggression." He urged
the Council to adopt measures
that would put an end to ''the
usurpation" that Israel under-
took day after day in "our
Jerusalem."
The Council resumed debate
despite the lack of a draft
resolution. Diplomats here said
negotiations on a draft
resolution, which will allow the
U.S. at least to abstain rather
than invoke a veto are still un-
derway.
MEANWHILE, a resolution
expected to be brought before the
United Nations denouncing
Israel's position on a unified
Jerusalem was criticized by the
State Department. "We do not
believe that the debate is
warranted by developments on
the ground or that it is likely to
serve a useful purpose," Depart-

Resolution
SIGTUNA, Sweden The
delegates to the annual meeting
of the International Council of
Christians and Jews have
adopted a resolution condemning
the recent Middle East statement
by the leaders attending the
European Economic Community
conference in Vunice.
The resolution, adopted June
19, was sent to the leaders of the
countries attending the Venice

President Carter and Secretary of

President Dr. David Hyatt, who
also is president of the National

weeks ago, Reston said. "We
believe there should be future
negotiations to determine the
final status of that city. In ab-
sence of such negotiations, we do
not believe the issue can be
resolved by the Security Council.
We approach the prospect of i
debate and a vote on a resolution
with those considerations in
mind."
In Jerusalem, it was reported
that the transfer of the Prime
Minister's Office and Cabinet
office from West to East
Jerusalem is not imminent.
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
is reported to have told this to
the U.S. Ambassador Samuel
Lewis after a wave of press
speculation that the move was
imminent, which has drawn
sharply negative reactions from
abroad.
The timing of the press reports
was seen here as especially awk-
ward in view of the Security
Council debate on Jerusalem.
There is now speculation here
unconfirmed by official sources
- that the U.S. indicated to
Israel it would not veto a hostile
resolution on Jerusalem unless
any plans for the imminent
transfer of the Embassy were
shelved.

Concessions to Israel's Death Mandated in Venice
By KLAUS BERING
Stuttgarter Nachrichten
I President Carter has strongly
Ljected to any major move on
i Middle East by die European
ommunity. So just before the
|EC summit in Venice last
With, it looked like the Nine
ere no longer going to frame a
sh declaration on the subject.
Many pundits were expecting
be heads of state and govern-
ent of the Common Market
countries to make a major joint
statement on the Middle East.
After Mr. Carter's objection,
they seemed more likely to ap-
prove what might more ac-
curately be termed an outline of
their common viewpoint.
WHAT IS more, it could
hardly amount to more than the
lowest common denominator of
individual member-countries'
views on the Middle East.
The Nine have long put paid to
Britain's view that the EEC
ought to concentrate on a
revision of UN Resolution No.
242, passed by the Security
Council in November, 1967 and
so far the only basis for Middle
East peace bids approved by all
UN members.
The resolution states that all
countries in the region have a
right to territorial integrity and
independence, but in the eyes of
the Palestinians and Arab states
that support them it has aserious
shortcoming.
THIS DRAWBACK is that
the resolution merely calls for a
just settlement of the refugee
problem and makes no mention of
claims to self-determination.
On the basis of earlier EEC
declarations, the Arabs felt they
had reason to assume that the
Nine were considering an
amendment to the UN resolution
to include the Palestinians' right
to self-determination.
This view was evidently shared

came from Atlanta. Georgia to
share in the festivities.
by President Cuter who, at the
beginning of last month, an-
nounced his intention of vetoing
any such draft resolution.
He rightly fears that any step
in this direction would jeopardize
the progress of the peace talks
between Israel and Egypt begun
at Camp David.
NOW THE talks are in
deadlock over self-government
for the Palestinians, the impetus
provided by the Camp David
talks has in any case petered out.
This has doubtless come as a
bitter disappointment to Mr.
Carter, who will have wanted to
bill Camp David as his major
foreign policy achievement this
election year.
The latest round of unrest in
the occupied West Bank region,
where Israeli settlers are a
constant thorn in the Arabs'
flesh, is a further contribution
towards the fomenting of conflict
in the region.
So it is hardly surprising that
the U.S. President is anything
but keen to see a European
Middle East settlement bid st
present.
For its part, Europe has no
wish to disrupt the difficult
progress towards peace. It insists
that all it wants to do is lend
assistance (although Israel has
long since declined the offer).
ISRAEL'S FOREIGN
Minister Yitzhak Shamir reckons
past EEC resolutions on the
Middle East were motivated
mainly by the desire to ensure
long-term oil supplies.
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin has called on the European
Community to read the PLO
Charter, which calls for the
destruction of Israel.
The Nine have since :
at Venice the stand on the MkkUa
East they had taken in London In
June, 1977.
AL the 1977 meeting of
European Council, or EEC
summit, the heads of state and
government of the Nine
welcomed all peace bids based on
UN Resolution No. 242 sad
stipulated a number of other
demands.
THE ACQUISITION

declared impermissible,

The right of all states to

aa were the legitimate rights I
the Palestinians in drafting a just
and lasting peace settlement.
A few lines later, mention
made in a subordinate clause of
the need to consider a homeland
for the Palestinian people.
Two years later, in the
declaration on the Middle East
by a conference of EEC Foreign
Ministers in June, 1979, this
point was singled out for in-
clusion as the final item in the
catalogue of Common Market
demands.
SO THE essentials of the
Nine's reiteration of the
European Community viewpoint
were already apparent before
EEC leaders met in Venice.
They added fresh criticism of
Israeli settlement policy and a
response to Israel's plan to fully
integrate Jerusalem, including
the former Jordanian east of the
city, in the State of Israel.
The Arab world had great
expectations of the declaration to
be made by the EEC summit, but
at the moment these expectations
are unfulfilled.

Shamir Raps Weapons to Jordan
JERUSALEM In the first
public Israeli criticism of
reported U.S. intentions to sell
sophisticated new weaponry to
Jordan, Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir said here Monday
such sales would upset the
military balance and encourage
Jordan in its refusal to enter the
peace process. Shamir made the
remarks in an interview on Radio ;
Luxembourg.
In recent days, Israel has made
quiet representations to,
Washington in the wake of.
reports that the U.S. will sell
King Hussein sophisticated night
warfare equipment and new
tanks. Shamir spoke of
"aggressive" weaponry in the
proposed deal and said it would
"strengthen Jordan's resolve to
adhere to the 'Rejectionist Front'
of Arab states which do not
conceal their aggressive designs
against Israel.
"All sale of such arms to
Jordan and other rejectionist
states upsets the strategic
balance in the area." Shamir said.
JERUSALEM President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt strongly
repudiated the Palestine Libera-,
tion Organization and revived his
proposal that autonomy for the
Palestinian Arabs should be
implemented in the Gaza Strip
first before it is applied to the
West Hank.
In an interview on Israeli
television. Sadat said he has
instructed Foreign Minister
Kamal Hassan AM to raise the
Gaza-first proposal when the
autonomy talks resume. Ali.
Interior Minister Yosef Burg
who is Israels chief negotiator on
autonomy and U.S. special
Ambassador Sol Linowitz are
scheduled to meet in Washington
early next month to set a date for
resuming the talks.
Sadat also said that he would
have liked to invite Prime
Minister Menachem Begin to
Cairo to address the Egyptian
Peoples Council (parliament) but
refrained from doing so in order
to protect the popularity Begin
still has among the Egyptian
people.
MONTREAL Rabbi David
Feuerwerker. a well known
Jewish scholar, died Friday night
at the Jewish General Hospital
after a series of heart attacks. He
was 68 years old.
Messages of sympathy from
Pope John Paul II. French Pres-
ident Valery Giscard d'Estaing
and from the French Jewish com-
munity poured into Montreal
during the weekend. A funeral
service will be held today in front
of his home and then the body,
accompanied by his wife and five
children, will be flown to Israel
for burial.
The Swiss-bom Feuerwerker
was a war hero and university
professor who served as spiritual
leader of North America's
French-speaking Jews.
TEL AVIV Police still have
no clue to the whereabouts of
eight-year-old Oron Yarden, kid-
napped in Tel Aviv two weeks
ago. The search and investigation
are continuing while well-inten-
tioned persons and perpetrators
of hoaxes raised hopes that
rapidly faded into despair.
An anonymous telephone caller
to Abie Nathan's "Voice of
Peace" radio station said Oron
would be returned the next
morning, but that turned out to
be a hoax. Last Thursday, Israel
Radio broadcast a tape of the
voice of one of the kidnappers
who spoke to Oron's parents by
telephone shortly after the child
disappeared. Thousands of
persons telephoned the police
claiming they recognized the
Yitzhak Shamir
voice, but no tresh leads turned
up.
The child was kidnapped by
unknown persons on June 8. His
parents paid the IL 2 million de-
manded by the kidnappers on
June 10, but their son was not
released and nothing has been
heard from the kidnappers since
then.
INITED NATIONS -
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim exr ressed "great
concern" here over news reports
that Prime Minister Menachem
Begins office and the conference.
room of the Israeli Cabinet are to
be moved to East Jerusalem.
In a statement issued by a UN
spokesman, Waldheim declared,
"If this decision is confirmed, it
will inevitably affect the status of
Jerusalem and therefore be in
contravention of resolutions and
decisions of the General
Assembly and Security Council.
Any such action will further
heighten tension in the area and
render more difficult the search
for a comprehensive, just and
lasting settlement in the Middle
East."
JERUSALEM Israel is
putting up no preconditions to
the resumption of the stalled
autonomy talks, and it expects
Egypt to do likewise, chief nego-
tiator Yosef Burg announced here
Monday. Burg spoke to newsmen
after a brief meeting of the
Ministerial Autonomy Com-
mittee under Prime Minister
Begin, and prior to his departure
en route to Washington where he
is to meet with Linowitz and Ali.
His reference was apparently
to recent Egyptian statements
demanding Israeli pledges on
settlements and on the Jerusalem
bill.
He also aired reservations over
Sadat's restated proposal to
focus on "Gaza-first."
"At this moment," the Israel
Minister said, it would be
"harmful" to separate out the
Gaza issue from the "Camp
David entity" as a whole.
LONDON While the PLO is
gaining in political respectability,
an increasing number of non-
Arabs have reportedly been
passing through its terrorist
training schools.
The Daily Telegraph, quoting
western intelligence sources,
gives details of foreigners who
last year underwent terror
training courses at a camp in
Hamouriya, Syria, run by Al-
Fatah, Yasir Arafat's
organization.
The camp, south of Damascus,
is said to have hosted four West
Germans, six members of the
Italian Red Brigades, four
members of the Japanese Red
Star Army, three members of the
Spanish Basque ETA terrorist
organization, 28 members of the
Argentine Montoneros group. 12
Brazilians, 30 Armenian Turks,
and 170 Iranians. There were also
180 recruits from various African
countries and 32 Asians, many of
them from the Philippines.

two of his customers were injured
when an explosion ripped
through a grocery shop in fl
Brak. One of the injured was J

of Jerusalem but caused no]

when the station was empty.
KFAR TABOR Local Jew
ish and Arab mayors met in this
Galilee town in an effort to
improve relations between their
communities in northern Israel.
But the discussion degenerated
rapidly into heated exchanges
and no formula for co-existence
was reached.
Mayor Micha Goldmann of
Kifar Tabor, who organized the
meeting, attempted to restrict
the agenda to municipal prob-
lems. But Mayor Tawfik Zayyad
of Nazareth, a Communist
member of the Knesset, injected
a bitter political note. He said the
Arabs of Galilee never challenged
the fact that the region was an
integral part of Israel. But. he
charged, when Israelis speak of
developing Galilee, they actually
mean its Judaization pushing
out the Arab population.
