U.S. Anti-Boycott Law Enforced
Over the past several months,
a number of American companies
have been fined for violations of
the law, passed in 1978, against
the Arab boycott of American
companies doing business with
Israel. The companies' offenses
included failure to report boycott
requests and the supply of infor-
mation about their business
relations to Arab countries.
Last October, in the largest
case of its kind, the Minnesota
Mining and Manufacturing (3-M)
Co. agreed to pay $137,000 for a
total of 230 alleged violations by
the company and nine of its
foreign subsidiaries. As part of
the settlement, the firm agreed to
strengthen its anti-boycott
procedure. Also in October,
Zamilco International Inc. agreed
to pay a fine of $32,000 for sup-
plying information about the reli-
gious background of its employ-
ees to Bahrain. In 1978, Zamilco
responded to a Bahrain question-
naire with the following
statements: "The principals of
this organization are all
Moslems. They have never had
any interests in the country of
Israel and the same policy will
apply as long as this company
In January, the following fines
were announced: ITT GrinneU
Corporation agreed to pay a
penalty of $50,500 for failure to
report 101 boycott requests in-
volving the sale of goods between'
ITT GrinneU and the Arabian
American Oil Company (Aramco)
in Saudi Arabia. The W. A. Baum
Co., agreed to pay a penalty of
$6,000 for furnishing prohibited
information in response to a
boycott request from Abu Dhabi
and failing to report the request.
In July 1979, the company signed
a distributorship agreement with
parties in Abu Dhabi stating
"there is no Israel interest, influ-
ence, labour or ownership in the
W.A. Baum Company, Inc." The
Raytheon Company agreed to
pay a penalty of $5,000 for sup-
plying information about its bu-
siness relations to the Arab
League's Central Boycott Office
in Damascus.
The increasing interest of Arab
universities in exchange pro-
grammes with American in-
stitutions has caused concern
over the application of the Arab
boycott in such agreements. In
view of this, the University of
Washington's recently
authorized exchange programme
with Saudi Arabia's King
Abdulazis University includes a
clause that prohibits the Saudis
from discrimination on the basis
of race, sex, age, religion and-or
national origin. The university's
officials have noted that the
contract will be terminated if the
Saudis violate or do not approve
the non-discriminatory clause.
Critics of anti-boycott
legislation often claim that trade
relations with the Arab states
will suffer as a result. Despite the
existence of American anti-
boycott legislation, 1980 sta-
tistics are expected to show the
continued position of the United
States as Saudi Arabia's leading
supplier of goods and services, by
maintaining a market share of
twenty percent of all Saudi
foreign purchases. In the first six
months of 1980, Saudi purchases
from the U.S. amounted to more
than $2.7 billion.
Moral Majority's Falwell Says
Members Not Anti-Semitic
NEW YORK (JTA) The Moral Majority, which
is headed by the Rev. Jerry Falwwell, has declared that
"One cannot belong to Moral Majority Inc. without
making the commitment to support the State of Israel in
its battle for survival and to support the human and civil
rights of Jewish people everywhere. No anti-Semitic in-
fluence is allowed in Moral Majority Inc."
That statement was contained in a full page ad-
vertisement in The New York Times explaining "how
Moral Majority Inc. stands on today's vital issues." The
paragraph on Israel said:
"WE SUPPORT the State of Israel and Jewish
people everywhere. It is impossible to separate the State
of Israel from the Jewish family internationally. Many
Moral Majority Inc. members, because of their theo-
logical convictions, are committed to the Jewish people.
Others stand upon the human and civil rights of all
persons as a premise for support of the State of Israel.
Others support Israel because of historical and legal ar-
"Regardless, one cannot belong to Moral Majority
Inc. without making a commitment to support the State
of Israel in its battle for survival and to to support the
human and civil rights of Jewish people everywhere.

Immigrant Absorption
in the 80s
JERUSALEM Its a long
way from the tent camps of the
1940s to the absorption centers of
the 1980s, but today's immi
grants to Israel face many of the
same problems as the olim of a
generation ago.
They come to a nation that is
still developing, a nation of
immigrants from a dozen dif-
ferent cultures and backgrounds
all trying to blend together in a
concept called Israel.
Today's immigrants. like
yesterday's, come needing help
and information about the
culture, structure, and texture of
life in the Jewish state. They
need financial assistance, perma-
nent housing, and employment
They need a place where they can
find temporary shelter, to ease
the transition from immigrant to
Beit Giora. in Jerusalem, is one
of those places. Called a hostel, or
Moon, the facility is designed for
olim who come to Israel with ade-
quate education and useful skills.
Unlike an absorption center, a
hostel dees not offer the more
intensive services such as full
time Hebrew classes
"Most of the olim hare corns
with a working knowledge of
Hebrew", explained Orna Fhui,
the manager (mmahelet) of the
hostel. "Most have trades of
professions that should lead them
to employment within a
relatively short time. But ab-
sorption is difficult even for those
olim who are better equipped to
get into the Israeli mainstream
than those from the Soviet
Because of the severe shortage
of housing in Israel, most
newcomers spend more than a
year at Beit Giora, some as long
as two years. The hostel
originally was designed for
temporary residency of no more
than six months and has had to
adjust to inflationary economic
conditions. Jobs are not easy to
find, even for Beit Giora s
comparatively skilled im-
migrants, especially in light of
recent budget cuts and hiring
freezes in many sectors of Israel's
social and government services.
"One young man from America
came with the certain knowledge
that he would have a position as a
social worker in Beit She mesh.
but due to the economic
austerity, that job is no longer
available," Orna explained with
visible empathy. "This young
man, like so many of the olim
here, is an idealist. He is more
patient than seems possible.
We're trying to find him another
job, with the help of the Ministry
.f Absorption, but it's not going
to be today or tomorrow. It's
unhappy and frustrating, yet the
quality of these olim is such that
i hey understand the situation
and work with it to the best of
leir ability. Right now. we
I aven't got much to give them in
tne way of permanent housing
solutions or employment except
our best efforts."
Orna and her staff try to
maintain Beit Giora as a place of
security in the world of frustra-
tion experienced by immigrants
to a new land. A cultural director
introduces the newcomers to
history, tradition, economics,
sociology and every major aspect
of life in Israel. There are
programs on dance, literature, art
archaeology and music. There are
trips for the olim to various sites
of interest in Jerusalem and other
parts of Israel. They meet native
Israelis and "old" newcomers,
people who have recently
completed the absorption
process. Sometimes these
meetings take place in the hostel,
but more often they are held in
the community, in the homes of
new Israeli citizens.
Once a week, ohm can meet
with a social worker from the
Jewish Agency, or with employ-
ment, housing, and financial
counsellors from Israel '
Ministry of Absorption. They
also have the opportunity to
bring their needs and problems to
the attention of Orna at any time.
"I try to see every one of the
ohm in my office, in the halls,
in the dining room, or the library
every day," Orna said. "One
oleh may feel more comfortable
talking to one of the others of my
ten-member staff. It may be the
secretary, the maintenance
manager, the cook, the cultural
director, the guards, or the
cleaning crew. Maybe one of the
other staff people is there just
when an oleh needs someone So,
they talk to the staff and the staff
people come to me I think of
each of them as a manager.
Together, as a small but close
team, we keep each other sensi-
tive to the needs of the olim. We
can, in most cases, find out what
the problems are and solve them
as quickly as possible."
"It's true that we never have
enough professional help
social workers. employment
counsellors and the like. We're
understaffed. We don't always
have enough of various materials
and our heating system is not
exactly reliable. But each
member of my staff cares about
the olim and does his or her
utmost to try to help them
through this difficult transition
The hostel is named for Giora
Josephthal who. as head of the
Jewish Agency's Department of
Aliyah and Absorption in the
1940s, devoted his energy and
concern to developing methods of
welcoming and absorbing olim so
that they could become part of
Israel as quickly as possible. It
was Josephthal who brought
immigrants to Israel out of the
"tent camps" and into the first
hostels. The tradition of special
assistance for newcomers that he
helped to found during Israel's
early years as a nation still
flourishes in Beit Giora and other
hostels throughout the country.
The priority of aiding im-
migrants through transition is as
vital today as it was thirty years
ago. Beit Giora. along with other
hostels and absorption centers
throughout Israel are staffed and
maintained by the same part-
nership that made the absorption
of more than a million-and-a-half
immigrants in three decades s
reality, the people of Israel and
the Jewish Agency, through
contributions to the United
Jewish Appeal.
Beit Giora isn't, and was never
meant to be, paradise. Yet,
despite serious economic bur-
dens, underfunding and un-
derstaffing. and the increasing
difficulty in finding permanent
homes and employment, hostels
like Beit Giora are providing an
essential service for thousands of
immigrants struggling to start
new lives.

directed toward achieving
campaigns that produce funds at
each community's capacity level.
"With the 1980 national
campaign breaking through the
$500 million barrier and the 1981
campaign showing significant
gains, our communities are
clearly capable of that kind of
peak performance. We are

Jewish Day School Passover Events
This year Passover falls on the
evening of Saturday, April 18.
On that evening Jews around the
world will join together with their
families for the celebration of the
Pesach seder.
In St. Petersburg, the students
of the Pinellas County Jewish
Day School are still preparing for
this momentous, holiday
evening. As soon as Purim
passed each student was given a
Hagadah. The "four questions"
were memorized in time for Rosh
Chodesh Nisan, the beginning
of the Jewish month of Nisan
during which the Feast of the
Matzohs arrives. The rest of the
hagadah, which includes an ac-
counting of the Exodus from
Egypt, hymns of praise and
thanksgiving, was also taught.
Next week, all these activities
climax at a
morning of
model seder on the
April 17 at Meno-
-ah Center. The model seder will
provide the students an oppor-
tunity to meet with ladies and
gentlemen who can contribute
much to their own upbringing.
The residents can provide the
children with stories of Jewish
custom and experiences that
have been garnered in the course
of a lifetime. For the residents,
hopefully, the children should be
a strong source of nachat.
7:30 p.m. on April 11 marks
the evening of the Pinellas

From the
Passover: Festival of Freedom
In the Hebrew Union College
Library8' Rare Book- Room, there
is a collection of miniature
Hebrew Bibles and Jewish
prayerbooks no larger than a
persons thumb. As a former
guide to this magnificent facility,
I was often asked, "Why did the
Jews print such small books?"
The answer reflects Jewish
history. In numerous countries at
countless periods of time, the Jew
was .not granted religious
freedom. The Synagogues, the
prayers, and customs of our
people were all part of a secret
world, discretly kept away from
Christian and Islamic neighbors.
Therefore, my answer to the
question: "They printed small
Jewish prayerbooks and Hebrew
Bibles so that they could hide
them in their pockets on the way
to the Synagogue You see in
many countries at most times,
Jews were not allowed to carry a
prayerbook in public!"
Consider the following: No Jew
voted for Disreali as Prime
Minister of England because the
Jews of England were not
allowed to vote in the 1800s.
Until a year 1789, Jews of Europe
were forced to live behind 12 foot
Ghetto walls. As late as 1860,
Jews were accused and convicted
and punished for "Blood Libel",
using Christian blood to make
Matzoh! "Avodin Hoyeenu:
Achshav Bnai Horin Slaves
were we: now we are free men!"
I wonder whether we ap-
preciate the freedom we enjoy in
America, I wonder if we marvel
at the miracle of being able to
practice our Judiasm and attend
our Synagogues without harm or
harrassment. I question whether
our children appreciate the many
blessings of Irving in a land of
On this Passover, let us
remember the suffering of our
ancestors, and recount for
ourselves the countless blessings
we share as Jews living in a land
of freedom, and at a time of
creativity and self-expression.

Reagan Assassination Attempt.
Main Issue is Violence
Once again, the nation is rocked by violence in
its highest quarters. The assassination attempt on
the life of President Ronald Reagan leaves us
We are grateful that the President has survived.
We are saddened by the tragic impact of the shooting
on Mr. Reagan's press secretary, James Brady, as
well as on the lives of the law enforcement officers
who were also victims of John Hinckley, Jr., now
charged by police as the would-be assassin.
A wrinkle in Hinckleys background is his
alledged anti-Semitic connections with Posse
Comitatus, an organization founded by a Williair
Dudley PeUey admirer, whose Silver Shirts struck
fear in the hearts of Jews in the mid-1930's.
But these are side issues, as is the charge that
the Secret Service should have been more careful in
keeping tabs on people like Hinckley, who was
arrested last October in Nashville, Term, for posses-
sion of three pistols and a cache of ammunition dur-
ing a stopover there by President Jimmy Carter.
The main issue is the violent nature of American
civilization, the staggering growth of crime to which
President Reagan had alluded just moments before
his shooting in an address to an AFL-CIO gathering
in the Washington Hilton. The main issue is the
breakdown of our law enforcement system.
The main issue is that, so far, people are angered
by this but not angered enough. Not as angry as
the President's daughter, Maureen Reagan, who
called on the nation Tuesday for an aroused public
opinion once and for all to launch an all-out war
against the violence to which, today, we are all
This is the main issue. We are, as we say, grate-
ful that the President has survived and will be back
at work before long. But the main issue must not be
forgotten. It must be pursued.

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
I am a 14 year old and already bit parents are pressuring
me to be a doctor or lawyer. Why do ao many Jewish parents do
that? I would like to be a muaician and I am quite good.
Throughout our long Jewish heritage and tradition, the
importance of an education and the mitzvah of doing a good
deed have always been treasured.
Thus, many Jewish families are pleased for their children to
be in the medical or legal profession. I am confident that if you
have a special talent and are serious about perservering in
career in music, your parents will be proud.

volved in helping Jews trouble. I sometimes resentparUOi
the Jewish religion which show men as superior
Thank you for the letter. I think, however, it it important to
realize that Judaism does stress the crucial importance of the
mother in influencing the entire Jewish family. For example
Jewish law recognizes the religious belief of the mother
critical in determining the religion of a child. The importance ol
woman in the leadership in the State of Israel and throughout
Jewish history is evident. You may wish to discuss this interest-
ing topic in your confirmation class.

Is El Salvador Spain All Over Again?
Letter to the Editor
El Salvador, Central

Bloodied and ravaged by un-
ndingcivil war?
\ow that a new regime has

bur ambassador to El Salvador,
Robert White, has been removed
om his wobbly post, changes in
\merican policy are probable.
Jut that does not mean that the
lorn- record of skirmishes to the
jeai'h between forces of the left
fnd right are about to end.
Consider the comparison of El
ftjvador's havoc today with that
Spain a half century ago. As
the Spanish Popular Front,
[imposed of syndicalists, com-
Mnists, socialists, and repub-
licans, was aided by the Soviet
[nion. so today the Marxist-led
utrrillas of El Salvador are
caving stockpiles of weapons
from Russia and Cuba. And just
fes ihe fascist Falange of Spain,
trailing Madrid's right wing
bmc <>f Francisco Franco, re-
tiivi-d the strong support of Hit-
ler's Nazis and Mussolini's

fascists of the world are cheering

Jriesta and religious teachers

fcpposing the guerrillas. Catholic
jraders now put the onus for
inch of the bloodshed on the
laltalions of the right. Ever since
llthbishop Oscar Arnulfo
iomero was assassinated in
March. 1979, priests who, along
lith the archbishop, were work-
ng vigorously for the poor and
for peace, have made it clear that
their cause is not that of the
radical right in El Salvador.
American interest in this
Central American struggle
reached a high point in De-
cember, 1980, when three
American nuns and a Catholic lay
leader again bent on aiding the
poverty-stricken Mestizos
were raped and killed in a rural
area of F.I Salvador.
Some with great knowledge of
the sorry history of that nation
may question a few of the state-
ment s set forth in a full-page ad-
vertisement published in The
New York Times on Feb. 3 under
the heading, "Let The People of
El Salvador Decide." But here
again, in marked contrast to
what we experienced in the
Spanish debates of the 1930s, you
will find the names of more than
40 Roman Catholic bishops,
nuns, priests, and other prom-
inent American Catholics en-
dorsing the protest against 50
years of military dictatorship and
appealing for world support for
the campaign to restore justice
and peace to a small nation
haunted by unending warfare.
WITH THESE developments
in mind, we realize that the Rea-
gan administration faces a chal-
lenge of great magnitude as it
approaches the situation in El
Salvador. Deposed American
Ambassador White was heavily
criticized for pressing the

They have declared that con-
sideration for human rights in
San Salvador must not be per-
mitted to get in the way of vital

against further penetration by
russia and its allies.
So while President Jose Lopez
Portillo of Mexico urges Presi-
dent Reagan not to intervene in

human rights there, and while the
danger of intensifying civil war
heightens daily, we stand on an

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian
Your article in the last edition
of the Jewish Floridian relating
that "Anti-Semitic Acts
Increase" caused me great
consternation. This increase is a
well known fact, not only locally,
but worldwide. The inability of
the Jewish community to do
more than bemoan the existence
of this ugly situation grieves me.
Please allow me to explain.
The first step in dealing with
any problem is understanding its
scope. Why, may I ask, do we see
this mushrooming of violent
rightwing groups throughout the
world at this time? Being tagged
a Jew or Black hater is anathema
to most Americans, more now
than ever before. Archie Bunker
types are held in proper perspec-
tive by a much more enlightened
public. Why, then, the recent
proliferation of powerful pockets
of the violent right? Simple!
Groups such as these are not
created spontaneously; they are
deliberaly financed and nurtured.
i FBI files have long ago shown
that the Black riots of the "60s
were carefully organized and or-
chestrated by Cuban trained
'Rap Brown' types.
The Communists have cleverly
learned that to have their leftists
combat the silent middle majori-
ty is counterproductive and self
defeating, and have therefore
learned to finance and develop a
rightwing, so that both extremes
can attack each other and or the
center in order to wage a good
vicious internal conflict.
Consider the language used
recently by the USSR Defense
Minister Ustinov. "Terrorism,"
the Defense Minister wrote, "is
the weapon of Neo Fascism. The
West is doing their best to whip
up in the world an atmosphere of
mistrust, fear and hostility be-
tween peoples, while the Soviet
Union follows a well considered
constructive course of peaceful
co-existance and relaxation of in-
ternational tension and disarm-
ament." It's a shame Minister
Ustinov, that you never give the
West exact passages from the
USSR text.
Tp murder a Catholic, and
claim a Protestant did it to
assassinate a Black leader and
claim the Klan did it is that
the strategy?
Look my friend, virtually no
hands and a revolution is started!
Let us not be beyond looking
amongst ourselves.
Recently, in one of the promi-
i nent Jewish periodicals, a Jewish
writer said "Anti-Semitism is a
Christian imperative." All we
need is a "good" depression in
this country all the other
factors are moving into place.
What can deter their success?
A powerful FBI and CIA to in-
filtrate and investigate how much
Moscow and Arab money is
pouring into these neo-Fascist
groups. This is the kind of sur-
veillance that the Jewish commu-
nity can never abide. So, we are

White House," when Henry
Kissinger was Secretary of State,
Saudi Arabia was "relatively
constructive" and "at least
benignly respectful."
He said, however, that the
Camp David accords had "dis-
rupted that somewhat" and
indicated that it would be up to
historians to determine if that
was caused by "American mis-
management and incompetence
or something deeper."
When D Amato persisted in
asking Haig if he would raise the
matter of the peace process with
the Saudis, the Secretary of State
replied "Not in the context of
your question."
SEN. DENNIS DeConcini (D..
Ariz.) asked Haig if the Ad-
ministration is supportive of the
Camp David accords. In a tone of
surprise, Haig responded, Ab-
solutely; I hope I didn't leave
any doubt about it. The peace
process is a consequence of the
Camp David accords. We are do*
engaged in it from two aspects -
the autonomy talks (for the West
Bank and Gaza) and the peace-
keeping force" in Sinai.
Haig said that among the
differences in approach between
the Reagan and Carter Ad-
ministrations in the peace
process was that "We are not
going to have a myopic pre-
occupation with the Arab-Israeli
conflict exclusively." He was
alluding to the Administration's
view that the overriding priority"
is to stem Soviet intervention in
the Middle East.

Finally, a long-sought need is
being fulfilled Your Jewish Com
munity Center is going to have a
library! Many who frequent the
JCC have expressed an interest
in, as well as having a need for, a
room where they may read,
browse or check out books. A
room that would serve our
purpose is ready and awaits
being used for just such a pur-
pose. It is the beautiful room
receently redecorated and refur-
bished by friends of Maurice and
Thelma Rothman in honor of
their milestone anniversary, and
will be a most delightful setting
for our library.
We ask that everyone kindly
check their stock of books, an<
offer us those they would like to
contribute. We prefer books by
Jewish authors or possibly those
of Jewish content or interest. In
this manner, you can help us fill
our shelves.
Secondly, we are in need of es-
tablishing a small fund. We must
have some funds to be able to
start this project, and a small
sum from many would be suffi-
cient. Won't you please help':

Community Center of Pinellas

Robert Rolde (left) makes contri-
bution to Mr. Margolis of Camp
Contribution to Camp Kadima
Scholarship Fund
"I remember the positive and
wonderful effect that Jewish
camping had on me as a youth"
These are the words of Mr. L.
Robert Rolde who for many years
on an annual basis has given a
generous contribution to the
Camp Kadima Scholarship Fund.
Mr. Rolde further elaborated that
as a youth he could not afford to
go to Camp, and that through the
generosity of Jewish orga-
nizations and individuals he was
able to do so. Mr. Rolde this year
contributed $3,000 towards the
Camp Kadima Scholarship Fund
and requested that if possible
there should be at least $3,000 in
matching money so that no
Jewish child should be turned
away. Mr. Rolde is seen here pre-
senting a check to Fred Margolis,
Executive Director of the Jewish
Community Center of Pinellas
County. Mr. Margolis stated that
"It is only through the help and
assiswance of people like Mr.
Rolde that we have been able to
continue not only the excellent
high quality programs for Camp
Kadima, but for programs for the
entire community as well".
Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Richman
have made a generous donation
to the Camp Scholarship Fund in
Mr. Rolde's honor, and Mr. Rich-
man said "I hope that the rest of
the community will follow Mr.
Rolde's example and match his
donation at whatever level
Camp Kadima is the Jewish
Community Center of Pinellas
County Day Camp, which has
been in existence for over 23
years and serves children from
two and a half to 15 years of age.
Its diverse programs and acti-
vities has earned it an excellent
reputation in the community.
The Scholarship Fund for the
Camp is geared to give Jewish
children the opportunity to
attend camp. For further in-

Pinellas County Jewish Youth
Involved With Crime
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service has encountered con-
tinued incidents of Jewish youth
involved with illegal possession
wd sale of drugs; forgery; theft;
delinquency and even assault.
Often the youth is isolated or
rejected by other family mem-
bers. In response to the growing
mnumbcr of cases over the last
(,,w years, an ongoing liaison has
been established between Jewish
Family Service and the local
^correctional and court facilities to
.provide alternative care and
treatment for youth currently in
| a jail setting.
Murray M. Jacobs, board pres-
I ident. explained that the efforts
of the legal volunteer profes-
sionals such as Myron Mensch
and Henry Elkind, often help
secure the release of youth to a
hospital or mental health setting
for rehabilitation.
According to Mr. Bernstein,
Iagency director, many times the
[youths have an underlying drug
dependency, emotional problem
Henry Elkind
or vocational need which is
tackled by the social service staff
and a professional volunteer
committee. Mr. Bernstein ex-
pressed his gratification to
agency staff to find that many
youth have responded well to the
rehabilitative treatment plan and
gone on to live productive lives.

vices is a major beneficiary

Anti-Semitic Twist to the Dreyfus Affair
In a letter to the Toronto Globe
and Mail, Irvin Steinberg,
National Commander of the
Jewish War Veterans of the
USA, strongly protested the false
and slanderous statements, made
by author Mavis Gallant, con-
cerning Jews in the American
military during the nineteenth
century. These remarks were
made in an interview, published
February 28, 1981, in the
Canadian newspaper, on Ms.
Gallant's new book on the
Dreyfus scandal.
Interviewer Phyllis Grosskuth
raised the issue of Dreyfus'
unique position as a Jew in the
French army. Mavis countered,
"There were 500 Jews out of an
army corps of 10,000. That's high
. for a tiny Jewish
population," but Mavis con-
tinued, "There were no Jews in
the British army, none in the
In his letter, Commander
Steinberg set the facts straight.
At the time that Dreyfus was
being unjustly accused in France,
5,000 Jews were serving the U.S.
army in the Spanish-American
War according to a survey by the
American Jewish Historical
Society. One index to the number
of Jews who served was the 4,000
furloughs for the High Holy
Days granted by the War
Department in 1898. Another is
the special tribute paid by Theo-
dore Roosevelt to the Jews
serving in his Rough Riders.
Another is the number of medals
Jews won for bravery.
Steinberg further pointed out,
"Jews have served American
vVith distinction since the
Revolutionary War. Indeed the
Jewish War Veterans, the oldest
active organization of veterans in
the U.S., was formed in 1896 by
76 Civil War Veterans to counter
the same kind of slander which
Mavis Gallant expressed. "

Toronto Artist Source
Of Hate Literature
Flooding W. Germany
Russell Guest Speaker
Ernst Zundel, a 42-year-old
commercial artist residing
in Toronto, is the principal
author, publisher and
distributor of the tons of
neo-Nazi, anti-Semetic
literature seized by West
[German police in mass
] raids on the homes of
[known neo-Nazis and right-
wing extremists. According
to Jhe German authorities,
f the racist material out-
llawed in the Federal
I Republic originated mainly
I in the U.S. and Canada.
Zundel, who operates out of a
I studio in an old house at the edge
I of Toronto's downtown business
district, has been turning out
Nazi hate literature for 18 years.
I He writes much of the material
I which is published in 14 lan-
guages and circulated in 45
countries around the world.
Zundel is the author of seven
books. One. titled The Hitler We
Loved and Why, was published
in Reedy, W. Va., under the name
of Christoef Friedrich.
ZUNDEL ALSO founded the
organization called "Concerned
Parents of German Descent." It
appeared following the telecast of
the American-made TV docu-
drama Holocaust in 1979. But
Zundel is believed to have little
following in Canada's German
community. His literature, mass
mailed to members of
Parliament, provincial legislators
and the media, is generally
The major theme of Zundel's
output is that the Holocaust is a
Zionist hoax. But this has not
been deemed a violation of
Canadian laws against incite-
ment to racial or religious hatred.

B'nai B'rith joint committee on

dition to practicing law, he was
elected to the Florida State

a Judge, City Attorney for
Gulfport, and assistant State
Attorney in 1969, and was elected

Project Home Start
Project Home Start is one of
the most innovative attempts at
' helping families of young Jewish
children to join together and en-
joy the Jewish holidays. This
I project, which can be subscribed
to by families of Jewish children
ages three to seven, is designed
to meet the needs of all Jewish
homes. Seperate versions are
I available for Orthodox, Con-
servative and Reform household.
Home Start is unique and it is
fun. The publishers will send each
subscriber packets of games,

two years. During 1981-82 those
holidays are: The Fall Holidays
(Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur,
Sukkot and Sim hat Torah),
Passover and the Sabbath.
The program is being marketed
locally by the Pinellas County
Jewish Day School, 301 59th
Street North, St. Petersburg,
33710. It has the support of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, which has given the
school a special grant for market-
ing of Home Start. Home Start
has won the William J. Shroder
Award at the 1980 General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations. It has been
published by the American Assn.
for Jewish Education.

provide "hotline facilitators" on
call to answer questions and, if
requested, visit homes to assist
families with understanding the

1 Volunteer Grandparents Still
| Sought for Jewish Youth
According to Robin King,
project director of the Adopt-A-
Grandchild program, senior
volunteers are still needed to
offer their time for meetings once
a week to assist troubled youth
from single parent families.
Placements are available in a
group setting at the Jewish Day
School the Public School Setting
and Latchkey Program; as well
as direct relationships with
children in need.
The youth range in age be-
tween eight and 15, and des-
perately need the ongoing
commitment of elderly volunteers
to serve as "foster grand-
parents." In addition to offering
assistance with homework and
hobbies, the volunteers assist
children with developing a posi-
tive self-image and help mold
feelings of self-respect necessary
for a positive lifestyle. Volunteers
receive ongoing professional
training and financial assistance
with mileage expenses.
Any interested volunteers may
contact Mrs. King at 446-1005.

undee was not merely the
tsture to the PLO, symbolized
the display of its flag in
Lndee's Council chamber, but
the fact that it coincided with
unprecedented displays of anti-
Jewish prejudice in Dundee.
There are only about 20 Jewish
families in Dundee, and there is
no previous record of anti-Semitic
outbreaks since the community
was founded over a century ago.
The fact that the "twinning"
did not go unopposed was ini-
tially due to the leader of Dun-
dee's tiny community, Dr. Albert
Jacob. His outspoken and single-
handed protests were "rewarded"
three weeks ago by the appear-
ance of anti-Semitic daubings on
the home of his 81-year-old
The shock was redoubled last
weekend when more Nazi
symbols appeared on Dundee's
synagogue. The perpetrators,
however, performed an unwitting
service to the Jewish and Israeli
cause. On landing in Dundee,
Janner asked his pro-Arab
colleague, Ross, as well as James
Cowans, the Lord Provost, to
inspect the daubings.
IT WAS A graphic illustration
of Janner's arguments about the
affinities between anti-Zionism
and anti-Semitism. Directly at-
tributing the outbreak to the link
with the PLO, Janner told the
protest meeting: "When you

Carlson won the Republican

by Mark Siljander, a Michigan
State Representative, who
received 18,055 votes. Siljander
will run in a special election

Anti-Semitism Reported Strong
public opinion poll showing
that anti-Semitism is still
strong in West Germany
has been confirmed by
security services which re-
ported that anti-Semitic in-
cidents have increased
alarmingly in the country
over the past year.
According to a public opinion
poll conducted by sociologist
Badi Panahi. 50 percent of those
surveyed have negative feeling?
about Jews, and one-third have
very strong anti-Semitic
prejudices. Just before this poll
was published in Stern magazine,
a government survey published
in Der Spiegel news magazine
showed that 18 percent of West
German voters believe "German}
had it better under Hitler."
THE POLL published in Stern
said that 27 percent of West
Germans believe "some races are
predisposed to be more immoral
than others"; 14 percent believe
"you have to keep in mind that
Jews exercise a damaging in-
fluence on Western Christian
culture"; 56 percent did not share
this view; 16 percent rejected it
'moderately." and 10.5 percent
reject it "weakly."
