Begin Calls for New
Knesset Elections
Saul Schechter
From JTA Services
JERUSALEM: Stunned by
the resignation of his Finance
Minister Yigael Hurvitz and the
loss of his party's majority in the
Knesset, Israel's parliament,
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
called for the election of a new
parliament on July 7.
The opposition Labor Party
demanded a May 12 election.
The Knesset was expected to
vote on the issue after a
resolution to dissolve the Knesset
is introduced and debated.
Begin's Cabinet had decided on
the July 7 date as "the most con-
venient" for the election at which
the Labor Party is expected to
score a heavy victory. Labor
Party deputy Israel Peleg said:
"We believe a long campaign is
wasteful."
However, Eli Zilber, a
spokeman for the committee of
Cabinet ministers who favor the
July 7 date, said: "We are trying
to finish the government's
work." It is believed that this
work includes the building of two
more settlements in the West
Bank territory.
Coalition Majority
Whittled Down
Begin's coalition has survived
more than 20 no-confidence votes
in the Knesset since its victory
over the Labor Party in May,
1977. But its Knesset majority
has been steadily whittled down
by defections of individual
ministers and entire factions. In
November, it defeated a no-
confidence motion on the issue of
inflation by a mere three votes.
its slimmest margin to date and
the consensus in political circles
is that it could not withstand
another challenge on economic
issues.
Hurwitz's departure was pre-
cipitated by such an issue a
pay raise for teachers which he
opposed as inflationary but
which was supported by a
Cabinet majority yesterday. It

and the growing needs in the

must also meet new immigrant
needs in Israel and sustain
Jewish life around the world."
Saul Schechter reported that if
there is a shortfall in the cam-
paign goal in 1981, Federation
might be forced to cut, back on
budgets to agencies, therefore
cutting basic life giving services

PineUas Profile
Sylvan
Orloff
Sylvan Orloff
Where our thoughts are yesterday are where we are today.
Where our thoughts are today is where we shall be tomorrow.
Much of the success of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County is the result of the groundwork and foundation laid by
Sylvan Orloff, the first president of the Federation of Pinellas
County. Like a father who planted fruit trees so his children may
UiKfit of the fruit. Sylvan Orloff sowed seeds that are now and
will forever bloom for the benefit of all those who come after
him.
Sylvan was taught to care about Jewish survival back in St.
I'aul. Minn., where he grew up. His father Sam, an immigrant
I rum Russia, und his mother Ruth were both active in Jewish
community affairs, kept a Kosher home, and gave their children
a thorough Jewish education. Sylvan still strongly recongnizes
the value of a Jewish education as a means of perpetuating and
strengthening our people.
When Sylvan graduated from the University of Minnesota,
Ins work look him to Des Moines. Iowa where he met his wife
.Kan. whose Jewish upbringing and education was similar to
his. After their marriage, the Orloffs became a vital part of the
Des Moines Jewish community. Sylvan was a member of the
Idi.inl of Trustees of his synagogue and the Jewish Welfare
Hoard. True to his belief in the value of a Jewish education,
Sylvan served as President of the Bureau of Jewish Education
while in Des Moines.
The Orloffs moved to Pinellas County eight years ago, when
S> Ivan's business. Mitchellace, expanded here. Since their
arrival. Sylvan and Jean have become respected and admired
invmlwra of the community, and have continued working for the
survival of the Jewish people. The Orloffs are members of Con-
greguliun Beth Shalom in Clearwater. Sylvan is Past President
uf the synagogue and Past President of the Jewish Welfare
Fund. I Ie was a driving force behind the formation of the Jewish
l-'iderution of Pinellas County and served as its First President
from 197-1-7G. As such, he is a lifetime member of the Federation
Hoard of Trustees. Sylvan has also served as the chairman of the
llig Gifts Division of the Combined Jewish Appeal Campaign.
The Orloffs have five children: Ldni, Esther, Louis, Bruce,
and Ruth, all of whom have been to Israel and continue -in th
l radilion of their parents. The Orloffs" devotion to the survival
ol Israel has taken on a personal dimension since their daughter
l.oiii attended school in Israel, married an Israeli, and made
Israel her home.
The Orloffs have five grandchildren; Nadav and Noam, who
e in Israel, und Jessica, Michelle and Marc. As of this
iling. the Orloffs are in Israel visiting their children and
w ail ing the birth of their sixth grandchild. We wish them much

Letter to the Editor
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
1 want to express my thanks to
Maureen Rosewater, Womens
Division, and Federation for my
stroke of good luck as the reci-
pient of Prize No. 2 at the
Federation Mini-Mission Day in
December.
The Womens Community
Education Day today, was great.
I really enjoyed it, and I learned
some frightening truths at the
workshop on Cults. The work-
shop on leadership training was,
in my estimation, well conducted,
and very helpful to newer initi-
ates as well as workers of long
standing. Thanks again.

Called Women's League
Shabbat (Sabbath), the observ-
ance marks the founding of the
largest synagogue women's
organization in the world, with
over 200,000 members, by
Mathilde Roth Schechter in
January, 1918.
In honor of the occasion, the
Executive Board of Sisterhood
will participate in Sabbath
services at Beth Shalom on
Friday night, January 30, at 8
p.m.
"Action-oriented from the
beginning. Women's League has
a 62-year record of outstanding
achievements," Mrs. Goldie
Kweller, National President, said
in an anniversary statement. "In
an age of feminism and women's
liberation, we can be proud that
for more than six decades we
have been an independent
women's organization that
operates within a framework of
traditional Jewish values."
The purposes of Sisterhood, as
stated when Women's League
was founded are as follows: 'To
serve the cause of Judaism by
strengthening the bonds of unity
among Jewish women and by
learning to appreciate everything
fine in Jewish life and literature,
to instill the beauty of our an-
cient observances in the hearts of
children ... to cherish the
ceremonies of Sabbath and the
holidays ... to teach their
significance intelligently."
Karin Bornstein, Sisterhood
president of Beth Shalom, said
we in our Sisterhood have had the
opportunity to incorporate values
of Jewish tradition with
programs for education, service,
social action, Israel and world
Jewry. She issued an invitation
to the entire congregation and
guests to join Sisterhood
members in worship on Women's
League Shabbat.
Rabbi's
By RABBI STANLEY BBAV
"Ein shalom, ein yeshua" Without Peace, No Salvation
is a Jewish pacifist's translation of our tradtional wisdom
demanding that we "Seek peace, and pursue it. {Psalm
34:15) Judaism is more than the pursuit of Peace (or "amity"
in the new JPS rendering), but most Jews need reminding that
Judaism without a "gut" pacifism based on the inspiration of
our Hebrew prophetic heritage risks being sterile and vapid.
Shalom in its depth implications is a primary element of true
Jewishness in any of its legitimate expressions.
To too many of us. Peace is only something vitally needed in
Eretz Israel. Where will our kinsmen there be, unless Sadat and
Begin are ultimately successful? Or unless their successors, as
they must, will make Peace something genuine in the Middle
East?
Those of us whose pacifism however doctrinaire derives
from Jewish ideals and experience, have not only our Jewish
brothers and sisters to win over from their current stance of "We
Jews, too, are fighters." There are also our fellow Americans
(and of how many other nationalities?) who are firmly convinced
that we must "keep our powder dry" (and never think of
converting what is wasted on. armaments so prodigally into
funds for a more just and equitable society).
An then, out there, is our larger fraternity of mankind with
scarcely a thought to giving up violence, bloodshed, cruelty (or
even "sovereignty") on the road to even their most understand-
able economic, social and political aspirations!
Jewish pacifism is essentially-a personal option or, to us who
espouse it, a spiritual compulsion and imperative. But it is, in
its aims, no less than the world's salvation, as well as the fulfill-
ment of Judaism's noblest dream.- It may if we advocates get
busy enough be the road to rejuvenating our rehgion.
We and our successors may have a long row to hoe, but who
can say that our work is not cut out for us?

An Inauguration Prayer
We extend our congratulations to President
Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush on
their inauguration As our new chiefs of state,
we wish them every success.'
The times ahead are fraught with peril. The
return of the 52 American hostages Tuesday should
not hul us into believing otherwise. Both at home
and abroad, the American way of life is being chal-
lenged as never before.
It will take all of their running to meet these
challenges. Particularly President Reagan must bear
the burden of many agonizing decisions in the years
ahead.
We join all American citizens of every per-
suasion in praying for the kind of effective leadership
that will spruce up our international image,
strengthen our determination as a people, and
commit us to guarding the nation's precious
heritage.
Let's Hear it in Yiddish
At a time when there are unrelenting prognos-
tications foretelling the doom of the Yiddish
language and Yiddish culture, there are two Yiddish
stage productions being presented in South Florida.
Obviously, the producers are banking on the fact
that all those prophets of gloom simply are wrong.
One of the things we observe about these pre-
dictions is that concerned Jews, particularly those
with facility for the Yiddish language, all too readily
agree.
Well, here is an opportunity to strike a blow in
the cause not of doom but of survival and renewed
vigor. Going to Yiddish theatre in South Florida is
one way of making certain that the productions will
be a success and of holding out promise for more
such productions in the future.
More important, it is a way of contributing to
the survival of the Yiddish language and Yiddish
culture, and even to their renewed vigor.
It is also a way of having some darned good fun
as we exercise the old mama losken.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
ABOUT
"JEWS FOR JESUS"
Vhatb
'Jews for Jesus"?
"Jews for Jesus" is the popular
name for "Hineni Ministries,
Inc.," an organization supported
ind run by evangelical Christians
or the purpose of attempting to
onvert Jewish people to a belief
n the tenets of fundamentalist
Christianity.
Are the "Jews for
Jesus" Really Jews?
As s professional proselytizing
M-ganization. "Jews for Jesus" is
staffed by trained missionaries.
Many of these people are former
Jews who were themselves
onverted by missionaries, or
eople of Jewish ancestry whose
rents or grandparents may
nave converted. Others are
Gentiles who wear "Jews for
Jesus" t-shirts and give out
Jews for Jesus" literature
because converting Jews is their
jrofesion and / or their personal
-eligous crusade.
What Do "Jews for
Jesns" Believe?
What the "Jews for Jesus"
organization claims to believe is
that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah
and that it is possible for a Jew to
become a Christian without
giving up his or her Jewishness.
What Is Wong With That?
When the "Jews for Jesus" tell
Jews that they can become
Christians without giving up
their Jewishness, they do not
mean that they can fully believe
in the tenets of Judaism and
Christianity simultaneously,
since this is plainly impossible.
What they mean is that Jewish
converts to Christianity can still
bserve some of the forms of
lewish life if they wish
igbting candles on the eve of
the Sabbath, visiting Israel,
wearing a skull cap, celebrating a
Passover Seder, etc. But in the
hands of the "Jews for Jesus."
each of these most sacred Jewish
acts end symbols is perverted
and distorted. Each is given a
new Christobgical meaning
which negates, distorts, or
ignores its actual origins and real
significance. Thousands of years
of unbroken Jewish tradition are
casually cast aside by these mis-
sionaries who tell prospective
converts that theirs are the real
meanings of the Jewish customs
and ceremonies, meanings that
have been hidden from the
Jewish people by their rabbis and
teachers.
Haw DM "Jews for Jesas"
Get Started?
"Jews for Jesus" is the brain
child of Martin Rosen, who
founded the organization in 197a.
Rosen, who is in his late 40a.
converted to Christianity in 1993
Shortly thereafter he enrolled in
the Northeast era Bible Institute,
a fundamentalist Christian
divinity school, and received
ordination as a Christian minister
m 1966. Rosen derided to make
the conversion of other Jews to
Christianity his Ufa's work and
spent the next 17 years working
on the staff of the American
Board of Missions to the Jews, r
long-established, well-funded ano
generally ineffectual missionary
operation which also operates
under the name Bath Sar Shalom
(House of the Prince of Peace)
By the early 70s. Rosen had !
grown frustrated wxh the staid,
bureaucratic and relatively
straigh-forward evangelism of
the ABMJ. Inspired by the
example of the cults which ware
proliferating in the San Francisco
area where he waa stationed.
Rosen urged the ABMJ to adopt
the cults' more aggressive
proselytizing methods and focus
its efforts primarily on young
people, whom he saw as the
segment of the Jewish com-
munity most vulnerable to a high
intensity conversion appeal.
When the ABMJ refused, Rosen
quit, disnged his name to
"Moishe" and went into the mis-
sionary business for himself.
"Jews for Jesus" was the result.
Who Supports
"Jews for Jesus"?
Despite its rhetoric of concern
for "Jewish" identity, an official
"Jews for Jesus" document
("What Evangelical Christians
Should Know About Jews for
Jesus; A Confidential Report:
Not to be Distributed to Non-
Christians") makes the or-
ganization's true identity and af-
filiation quite clear. To quote
from the document: "We define
ourselves as evangelical fun-
damentalists and we seek the co-
operation of individuals and
Christian bodies meeting this
description.
Accordingly "Jews for Jesus"
solicits contributions and con-
tinuously and intensively from
evangelical Christian individuals
and organizations through mail
solicitations, engagements, and
through paid appearances by the.
"Jews for Jesus" performing
groups (the Liberated Wailing
Wall, Israelight. the New
Jerusalem Players and the Lion's
Lambs). Sympathetic local
churches and church agencies
also provide more direct kinds of
support for the "Jews for J<
organization.
Are the
"Jews for J<
Threat to the
Jewish Community?
"Jews for Jesus" is very much
a "hit-and-run" organization.
The "Jews for Jesus" method is
to inundate a city with mis-
sionary workers, stand on street
corners, hand out thousands of
throwaway broadsides, raise as
much money as possible from
sympathetic Christians in Iocs!
churches and then disappear.
While such tactics may not
lend to mass conversions, they do
serve to unsettle the Jewish
Community (as they are meant
to) and to create serious strains
in local Jewish-Christian
relations.
The real problem with "Jews
for Jesus" is that, in their
deliberate distortion of the
Jewish way of life and their per
version of the most sacred
symbols and the most important
spiritual beliefs of Jsws, Rosen
and his group do more than
merely offend. They also give
direct aid and comfort to all those
in our society who seek to per-
petuate anti-Jewish stereotypes
and thereby denigrate the Jew
and his religion.
The willingness of some more
conventional Christian bodies go
give the "Jews for Jesus"
material and moral support must
therefore give pause to thought-
ful Jews and to Christians who
sincerely desire to remove the
stain of anti-Semitism from post
Holocaust Christian belief and
practice.
Do All Christians
Support the Efforts
of "Jews for Jesus"
and Other Groups
Like Them?
No. In a letter to its 600
member congregations in 1977,
the Long Island Council of
Churches accused "Jews for
Jesus" of "engaging in sub-
terfuge and dishonesty" and with
"mixing religious symbols in
ways which distort their essential
meaning." Professor Tommaso
Federici, a consultant to the
Vatican, has called for an out-
rights end to proselytism of the
Jews, as has Dr. Krister Sten-
dahl, dean of the Harvard
Divinity School, and as recently
as 1973. more than 90 local
councils of churches throughout
the country, involving Roman
Catholics. Protestant and
evangelical leaders, including Dr.
Billy Graham, forth rightly
rejected efforts to single out the
Jewish community, and
especially Jewish young people,
as special targets for evangelism.
While some fundamentalists
seem willing to rationalize or
overlook the ethical questions
raised by Rosen's particular
brand of evangelism, there are
unquestionably many other
Christians, both evangelical and
liberal, who reject the deceptive
and denigrating tactics of groups
like "Jews for Jesus." Un-
fortunately, most Christians
know about these groups only
from the self-serving and mis-
leading publicity put out by the
groups themselves.

Terrorism Turned To Kindly Acts

In the summer of 1978,
L-rorists planted a bomb in
he luggage rack of a bus

through the Jeru-
suburb of Bayit
[egan.
As the bus reached its

message God was trying to get
across to us. And our collective
answer was that we were not
doing as much as a community as
we had the potential to do. Sud-
denly, everyone seemed to be
voicing the need to do
something."
l)o it they did. Within a short
time, a wide range of voluntary
services was established under
the guidance of Chayil's general
co-ordinator, British-born
Barbara Co wen.

.the bus incident," she said.
"There were people who for years-
were helping to set up brides
financially, visiting the sick,
helping mothers with new-born
babies.
There were people visiting the
soldiers in hospitals every Friday
to make sure they had all they
might need for a pleasant
Shabbat.
"What we now realized was
that if all the chesed in our com-
munity could be organized into a
central network, with those who
had the skills and experience
helping others be of service, the
results could be so much more
effective."
Chayil has a service which
involves sending volunteers into
the homes of those who, because
of age, illness or childbirth, are
unable to cope, as well as a
meals on wheels" service. It
operates a car pool for emergency
trips to hospitals and health
clinics, and it has a committee of
volunteers who visit hospitals,
the housebound and the elderly.
LOCAL RABBIS provide a
confidential family advice service
through Chayil, and a free-loan
society provides funds and, in
cases of need, outright grants to
local residents. A bookbinding
circle provides employment and a
chance for the elderly to make a
contribution.
"We have a man who lives
alone and who is unable to get
out of bed by himself," said a
director of Chayil. "Students
from Boys' Town come twice a
day to help him get up and
around. Yeshiva students do
repairs and build sukkot for
many of the elderly in Bayit
Vegan.
"Sometimes the need is for
simple companionship, for an
elderly person living alone to
know that someone will be
popping in for a visit and a chat.
It is such a small thing, but for
someone;

fneumdnia.' she said- '''And:then
and one. of my six children came

three weeks before Pessah and I
was desperate.
"I still don't know who con-
tacted Chayil, but before I knew

"In the mornings, married

arrived to help out.
"They kept this up for a month

don't know what I Would have

A Department official later

the Department handled 33 en-

in fines and compliance actions,
while 21 companies received
warning letters. In 76 cases,
activity ended after no violations
were established and about 126
warning letters were issued for

Dr. William Sanford LaSor, Pro-
fessor Emeritus of Old Testa-
ment at Fuller Theological
Seminary in Pasadena. Calif.,
and a Wd'"g fundamentalist
theologian, defended the Evan-
gelicals' position on this issue.
"Whatever our differences

some of us those differences an*
substantial, we should arm*
them out openly in the public

LaSOR DISAGREED with t
phrase in the proposed NJCRAC
position paper which called
certain political activism by
Church groups "profoundly vir>
lative" of the spirit .of the Consti-
tution. He argued that, for more
than a century, liberals have
dominated Church thinking in
America, and for most of this

Four More Years of Jimmy Carter
It Would Have Meant More Humiliation for Israel
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) In the dosing
weeks of its four mainly
dispute-ridden years of re-
lations with Israel and its
friends, Carter Administra-
tion policy-makers reverted
publicly from a form of
even-handedness'
towards Israel-Arab affairs
during the presidential
election campaign to re-
newed backing of the
Rogers Plan proposal* of
1969.
In addition to adherence to the
plan that calls for Israel to return
to its 1967 borders and abandon
Jerusalem, Carter Administra-
tion aides went further. To ac-
complish this purpose, they now
again goad Israel's American
triends to lessen their support for
the Middle East's only democ-
racy and cast aspersions on its
freely-elected government.
THIS APPARENT swing
i.irk to old perceptions indicates
what a second Carter term might
have meant for Israel. Evidence
is in the post-election U.S. atti-
tude in the United Nations; the
comments of State Department
spokesmen; the personal remarks
of the U.S. Ambassador to the
UN, Donald McHenry; the views
of former Ambassador to Egypt,
Hermann Eilts; and the outline
of U.S. psychological operations
towards Israel offered by Dart-
mouth Prof. Ian Lustkk, who
worked in the State Department
on Middle East issues in 1979-
1980 and accurately reflect U.S.
policy as it has been carried out
moat of the Carter term.
In a post-election address at
the dinner given last month by
friends of Israel to AFL-CIO
President Lane Kirkland, Presi-
dent Carter characteristically
lauded Israel's devotion to
political democracy and hailed
the Camp David agreements.
But he omitted such element;
aaBBnaanaewi
Ambassador McHenry,
as the unity of Jerusalem, op-
position to a Palestinian state
and dealing with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, and
Jewish life and Israeli security
related to the West Bank. Gaza
Strip and the Golan Heights.
This presentation essentially was
in keeping with the Lustick
formula of limited support for
Israel a formula the President
outlined in Clinton, Mass. in
1977.
THE ADMINISTRATION'S
vacillating treatment of Israel in
its fourth year is illustrated by
pre-election and post-election
developments. On Mar. 1, the
U.S. voted in the UN Security
Council for Israel to abandor
Jerusalem, but in the subsequent
Congressional storm, much like
after the Soviet-U.S. agreement
Oct. 1, 1977, Carter repudiated
the U.S. vote, but the State
Department never changed it
formally at the UN.
After that, the Administration
did not cast any votes against
Israel in the Security Council
until mid-December after the
Presidential elections when
the U.S. voted along with the
other 14 members of the Security
Council on a resolution calling
upon Israel to allow two West
Bank Arab mayors to return to
their homes after they had been
deported by Israel following the
terrorist ambush attack last May
in Hebron in which six yeshiva
students were killed.
Immediately after the vote
took place. McHenry delivered a
statement that might well go
down as the quotation of the
year: "Cynics may claim that we
would have voted diffrently
before Nov. 4. but I can't be hos-
tage to cynics ." The resolution on
the mayors was one of six anti-
Israel resolutions the Security
Council passed the same day.
Through it all. the U.S. dele-
gation allowed Israel to be mere i-
bail} brow-beaten.
THERE WAS also an element
of vacillation on the part of the
U.S. when Secretary of Slate
Edmund Muskie addressed the
Security Council on Aug. 20
when that body voted to censure
Israel for proclaiming united
Jerusalem as its capital and
urged all states that had em-
bassies in the holy city to with-
draw them.
Muskie told the Council that
the resolution "is illustrative of a
preoccupation which has
produced this series of un-
balanced and unrealistic resolu-
tions on Middle East issues. It
fails to serve the goal of all faiths
that look to Jerusalem as holy."
He urged that "debates and
resolutions that are not germane
to the peace process and even
harmful to it should stop.
Elsewhere in southwest Asia, and
in southeast Asia, warfare is a
present reality. The aggressor
nations make no effort to find
peace Yet this Council is con-
tinuously drawn to the Middle
East, where authentic work for
peace is underway."
BUT MUSKIE. instead of
vetoing the measure as his words
seemed to indicate he would,
instead abstained.
When Jordan's delegate en-
gaged in anti-Semitic abuse of a
kind not expressed by any
government in any international
forum since the time of the Nazis,
the U.S. delegation was silent.
Only Israel's envoy responded to
it.
The focus of blame for Middle
East problems constantly is put
on Israel. In an interview pub-
lished Dec. 12 in the Kansas City
Jewish Chronicle. McHenry said
Israel's policies provide "am-
munition" to Israel's enemies.
"We don't believe Israel's actions
on settlements, on Jerusalem, in
southern 1-ebanon. in the repres-
-i\ e ad ions in the West Bank are
in the interests of Israel, the
interest of peace."
He rejected Israel's role in the
I S. strategic interest. T don't
UM the language 'strategic
ally.' he said.
.McHenry. 44. who leaves office
Jan. 19. presumably to take an
academic post, called for debate
in America about Israel's
pnlkies. "There is a frequent
tendency among supporters of
Israel in the U.S. to take a
position that comes very close to
my country, right or wrong' ",
he said. His words, some noted
here, come very close to calling
on Americans to denounce Israel.
THE WINTER issue of
Fonign Policy magazine, pub-
lished by the Carnegie Endow-
ment for International Peace,
contained two attacks on Israel.
Under the title, "Saving Camp
David," Eilts hinted Israel de-
ceived the U.S. at Camp David.
On the Jerusalem issue and
settlements, Eilts said "the
Americans had misunderstood or
had been misled."
Agreeing moat of the way with
McHenry about the PLO. Eilts
said "only through open U.S.
contacts with the PLO leadership
will it be possible to guage
whether the PLO would be
willing and able to participate re-
sponsibly in broader peace
negotiations." Eilts added that
"in return, the PLO must re-
nounce terrorism." He did not
mention adherence to Security
Council Resolutions 242 or 338. -
He regards Camp David as
having given Israel too much
despite its return of all the Sinai
to Egypt. "At some point in the
future." Eilts noted, "the U.S.
may find it prudent to shelve
quietly the Camp David impri-
matur, which has become a psy-
chological barrier to broader
Arab participation." Although
"such a decision should be made
only with Egypt and Israel." the
implication is that Israel should
l>e leaned on to give more.
LUSTICK PLAINLY called
for the U.S. to treat Israel with
disdain. "A policy of steady,
public, and convincing disassoci-
ation from Israel's policies in and
toward the West Bank and Gaza
would help create" an "interna-
tional political context suppor-
tive of those elements in Israel
that already are or will become
aware of the necessity to reach a
political accommodation with the
Palestinians." He did not iden-
tify those elements.
"A policy of disassociation
rather than mediation or .1
pressure," he said, "would help
the growing numbers of those
both in Israel and in the U.S.
Jewish community, who are
striving to frame Israel's choices
in a way that focuses attention on
the long-term costs of fulfilling
maximalist ideological com-
mitment."
Under the policy of "disassoci-
iitkin. Lustick wrote, "the U.S.
would continue current very high
levels of military and economic
aid to Israel but would publicly,
concretely and regularly express
its opposition to settlements,
land expropriation, deportations,
seizure of water sources, annexa-
tion of East Jerusalem, or any
other aspects of the occupation of
the West Bank and Gaza reflect-
ing Israeli ambitions that go
beyond insuring order and
security."
LIKE OTHER Administration
articulations legitimizing the
PLO. Lustick suggested altering
Camp David's provisions because
the peace processes "weaken U.S.
credibility in the Arab world,
and "an atmosphere develops in
which Syria. Saudi Arabia and
the PLO become less convinced
of the possibility of a political ac-
commodation with Israel.'

Amsterdam court sentenced him
to 15 years imprisonment. But
the Supreme Court quashed that
verdict on technicalities and
referred the case to The Hague

When the latter upheld the

Court again overturned it and
sent the case to the Rotterdam

BONN Several outspoken
friends of Israel have launched a
campaign here opposed to arms
sales to Saudi Arabia by the
West German government. They
include Bundestag Vice Presi-
dent Anne-Marie Ranger, a
leading member of the ruling
Social Democratic Party (SPD),
and a small group of parlia-
mentarians from the Free Demo-
cratic Party, the SPD's coalition
partner.
Under fire is the recently
adopted position by Bonn that
Saudi Arabia is not an "area of
tension" and therefore may be
removed from the government's
self-imposed ban on selling
weapons to countries in such
areas which are not members of
the North Atlantic Treaty Or-
ganization. That position,
recently enunciated by Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich Gen
scher, was seen ss part of a cam-
paign to prepare public opinion
for the sale of 300 highly sophis-
ticated Leopard II tanks to Saudi
Arabia.

By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK procedures for processing Soviet
Jewish emigrants that, if suc-
cessful might reduce the number
of Soviet Jews who choose to
settle in countries other than
Israel, are announced by HI AS.
Addressing a press conference
at HI AS headquarters here,
Gaynor Jacobson, executive vice
president of HIAS, said that
under the new plan Soviet Jewish
1 emigrants would spend only two
days in Vienna, their first stop
out of the Soviet Union, instead
of eight to ten days ss heretofore.
THOSE WHO opt for settling
in Israel will fly there from
Vienna. The others, according to
the new plan, will go to a hotel
north of Rome where, during up
to a week's stay, they will receive
expert "joint counseling" from
representatives of HIAS, the
Joint Distribution Committee
and the Jewish Agency.
The counseling will consist of
providing up-to-date informataoi
about life in Israel and the oppor
tunities Israel has to offer to the
individual Soviet emigrant.
"Those with dose relatives in
the U.S. or other countries will be
helped to be reunited with then-
families," Jacobson explained.
"For all the other emigrants, a
conscientious snd sensitive effort
will be made to help them choose
to go to Israel."
BUT JACOBSON said in
response to a question from the
j Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the new procedures do not indi-
cate a shift in policy on the part
of HIAS and that any Soviet Jew
who insists on going to the US.
willbeassitedbyHIAS.
Jacobson said he hoped that
under the new procedures, two-
thirds of future Soviet Jewish
emigrants would choose to settle
in Israel and one-third in the
U.S., Canada, Australia and
other countries. At present, the
figures are exactly the reverse, ha
said.
He sdded that he believed the
ixpert counseling to Soviet Jew*
in Rome, which is to begin in a
few weeks, "will help many
refugees make better informed
choices than in the recent past."
Israel, he said, "has s great
leal to offer, especially for people
in certain professions. Beyond
this, Israel possesses a religious
and cultural environment that
Jews from the Soviet Union have
never been permitted to enjoy."
JACOBSON ALSO announced
at HIAS through local
iwish community organizations
ind Jewish Federations was
ncouraging American Jews
(espeTally recent arrivals) with
close relatives in the Soviet
Union to send "setters of
Invitation" to their kin desiring
to leave the USSR.
"In recent times, an average of
500 Soviet Jewa a year has come
to 'the U.S. in this manner,"
Jacobson reported, "and we
believe larger numbers will arrive
here if there is an increase in invi-
tations from close relatives.
