Rev a Kent, President of the Jew-
ish Federation of Pinellas
County.
A Koved Fund has been estab-
lished, where people can memo-
rialize, honor or remember oc-
casions and whose money will be
available to the community for
unbudgeted emergencies. Our
Community Relations Com-
mittee! Let anything happen that
affects the Jewish community
and Gordon Saskin is on top of it.
The Long Range Planning.
Committee, under the leadership
of Charlie Rutenberg has held ex-
ploratory meetings. Three major
issues that the Board must
address are a new and more cen-
tralized community center, a
larger facility for the Jewish Day
School, and proper facilities for
our seniors.
The Jewish Day School, a
dream two years ago, and today
over 30 children receiving a fine
secular and Jewish education
under the professional leadership
of Ed Frankel, and the lay leader-
ship of Michael Phillips.
The Jewish Community
Center; our oldest local institu-
tion, so much was done this year.
Improvements were made in the
physical plant, Outreach
Programs for Senior Citizens
took place at Minorah Center,
programming began at the Golda
Meir Center in Clearwater, and
Camp Kadima had its most suc-
cessful season. Our hats are off to
Jerry Colen. retiring President
and Fred Margolois, Executive
Director.
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service has been responsible fOr
distributing over $750,000 worth
of life sustaining services in
Pinellas and even part of Pasco
County aiding the indigent, and
those with family problems, with
a client age from two to 92.
Michael Bernstein, Executive
director, Murray Jacobs, Presi-
dent of GCJFS, and a large orga-
nization of dedicated people have
been present when anyone was in
need. Your campaign contribu-
tions combined with local, state,
and Federal grants, attests to the
merits of our agencies work.
Last, but always first, our
campaign. No campaign is better
than its leader, and I want to
publically and gratefully
acknowledge the superb work of
Saul Schechter as the general
campaign chairman, and Mau-
Campaign Over $720,000
reen Rosewater, as President and
Campaign Chairwoman of
Womens Division. These expres-
sions of appreciation would not
be complete if I didn't publically
thank my husband Marshall for
his support and understanding,
and for realizing how important
this Federation and the Jewish
community is to me.
My report is complete. Much
remains to be done, and one year
from now, I look forward to tel-
ling you the work has gone on.
Before .1 leave you, I have to
answer a question that is asked of
me persistantly. "Why do you do
all this? I'll*tell you. This work is
my life, my Jewish life. This hope
of bringing reality to Jewish
dreams is the spark of my life.
We, who do our people's work,
year after year, celebrate life by
giving it to others. That is why
we find joy in what we do, and for
this opportunity, I thank you.
Shalom.
Most Successful In
Pinellas History
The Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County's 1981 Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign is over
the $700,000 mark. This amount
is the largest ever raised in the
history of Pinellas County. The
$720,000 shows an increase of
giving over last year's campaign,
but more importantly, it rep-
resents a large number of new
gifts and a broadening of the
campaign base. More and more
Jews in Pinellas County realize
that they must give so that we
can continue our life supporting
services here at home in Israel
and around the world.
Our campaign is the tool
through which we transfer our
caring into dollars. We are given
the chance to express our
commitment to Jewish survival
in tangible way. The bottom line
is giving, whether time, money,
or both. We have proved that the
Jews of Pinellas County want to
be counted. We will not let the
future of the State of Israel slide
by. Because of our caring, we are
able to help the Israeli govern-
ment strengthen the social
services to new immigrants, we
are able to help provide a better
educational system, we are able
to help provide for new housing,
and much much more.
The $720,000 was not raised by
the efforts of a few people. This
amount could never have been
reached without the work and
dedication of the division chair-
persons, who gave so unselfishly
of their time, or without the vol-
unteers who worked so hard and
displayed so much dedication to
Jewish survival.
I am proud to know that when
the people of Pinellas County
recognize the need, they respond
by giving. For this I am grateful
and so are our fellow Jews in Is-
rael and around the world.

gift to the 1981 Combine Jewish
Appeal campaign, please do so
now. Mail your pledge to the

UIA Dedicates Residence for the Elderly
WASHINGTON. DC. The
United Israel Appeal (UIA) to-
day presented Congressman

tative of New York's 22nd
District, with a momento of the
residence for the elderly
dedicated in his honor. The
facility, named "Bingham

Irving Kessler, Executive Vice
Chairman of UIA, in making the
presentation, expressed the
appreciation of the organization's
board of directors and trustees
for the Congressman's leadership
and support in Congress on be-
half of Soviet refugees emi-
grating to Israel. Since 1973,
Congressman Bingham has
sponsored legislation enabling
Israel to receive through UIA,,
more than S215 million to resettle
these refugees. The Refugee Re-
settlement Grants have aug-
mented funds provided by the
American Jewish community,
through the nationwide cam-
paigns of United Jewish Appeal.
Grant proceeds were used to pro-
vide temporary housing, enroute
care, maintenance, health care
and vocational training and re-
training. More than 155,000 refu-
gees from the Soviet Union and
other Eastern European coun-
tries have received assistance.
One of the founders and the
principal beneficiary of UJA,
UIA has provided more than $2
billion since 1970 for immi-
gration, absorption, housing,
education, youth care and other
social needs in Israel. Since 1925
UIA has been involved con-
tinuously in aiding the resettle-

ment of refugees in Israel
through programs of the Jewish
Agency for Israel.
More than 20 percent of Is-
rael's immigrants are 60 years of
age, or older; a high proportion
with chronic illnesses, economic
disadvantages or physical handi-
caps. The Jewish Agency is res-
ponsible for the care and well-
being of these people. Their
assistance includes pensions and
medical insurance, funds for
placement in sheltered work-
shops and rehabilitation units,
and maintenance of a staff of
social workers to assist them in
all aspects of their integration
within the community. In recent
years, the most comprehensive
program has involved the con-
struction of a network of modern
residential homes for retirement
age, new immigrants who arrived
from countries where Jews are in
distress, primarily Eastern
Europe and especially the Soviet
Union. UIA has provided the
funds for the construction and
maintenance of 11 such facilities,
including"Bingham House."
The residential home program,
which was started in 1964, has
been expanded significantly in
the past three years with the con-
struction of five new buildings.
These homes are designed to
enable disadvantaged, elderly
immigrants, most of whom are
without spouses, to live out their
lives in dignity and comfort.
Mr. Kessler explained that
United Israel Appeal had decided
to name the residence in Ash-
kelon as a tribute to the dis-
tinguished U.S. Representative
from New York, Jonathan Bing-
ham, as recognitition of his
commitment and support for
humanitarian causes. The facility
is owned by UIA and ad-
ministered by the Unit for Social
Services, Department of Immi-
gration and Absorption of the
Jewish Agency for Israel. This
modern six story structure con-
taining 120 apartments, offices,
activities rooms, workshops and
a synagogue, was opened in Sep-
tember. 1980.
Ashkelon, which is Israel's
southern-most coastal city, with
a population of 60,000, is situated
at the edge of the Mediterranean
Sea 30 miles south of Tel Aviv. It
is a popular resort for Israelis and
tourists alike. Bingham House is
situated on the shoreline in an
area that will be developed for
tourist and recreationl facilities.
The temperate year-round
climate and the surrounding
environs, consisting of ar-
chaeological ruins, beachea and
national park, combine to create <
perfect environment for
Bingham House.

Dear Jewish Federation o! Flnellaa County,
Becauae you're a new supporter of the Southern Poverty Law Center >M
lta KLAJWATCH project, I'd like to thank you personally and tell you 01t
about my own experiences a* one who has been helped by the Center.
In 1966 I wa elected Sheriff of Macon County, Alabama, the firat black
an to attain that office in the South since Reconstruction. Before paiij,,
of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. ay election would have been impossible.
But due to strong Klan pressure, the civil rights movement of the
sixties caused only moderate gains. Blacka and Jews still remained the
blunt of ugly discrimination. In 1970. when I applied for admission to
a private law achool in Montgomery, my application was rejected because
of my race.
The lawyers of the Southern Poverty Law Center sued on mv behalf and
won the first federal court order to deaegregate a private achool.
obtained my law degree in 1975.
Ny case may seem minor when compared to some others handled bv the
Center. You may have heard about their successful defense of Joan Little,
or the integration of the Alabama State Troopers, or how thev have saved
countless poor Southern blacks from electrocution after convictions by all-
white juries.
But what the Center did for me is just one example of the many important
cases they take that never gain wide public attention. Right now they ire
undertaking a project to keep watch on the Ku Klux Klan And. they filed
a precedent-setting law-suit to enjoin the KXX in Alabama from violating
the rights of citizens.
I hope that my telling you how the Center helped me will reassure you
that your contributions are being put to good use. And because I understand
how urgent and worthwh. their work is, I nope you will continue to support
the Center's efft-rts I: future.

activities. Here are a few selected
items of Klan-Nazi incidents from
around the nation:
PROVIDENCE. R.I. Rhode
Island was founded in the 1660's
by people searching to escape
religious intolerance, but even
this state has not been immune to
acts of organized racism. In late
February, two empty homes
owned by Narragansett Jews
were hit by raw eggs and painted
with swastikas. Another Jewish
resident of Narragansett reported
that he received several anti-
Semitic phone calls. Two build-
ings in Providence were similarly
defaced. A cross was burned in
front of the home of a black
family in Barrington. and a man
dressed in Klan garb harassed
black employees at the Electric
Boat plant in Quonset. That in-
cident is being investigated by
local police.
MERCED. CALIF. Klans

Klansman Phillip Beach and

with spraypainting swastikas
and slogans like "Death to Jew
Dogs" on tombstones in a local
Jewish cemetery. Beach also has
been charged with vandalisjri at a
local Jewish house of worship and
a Jewish delicatessen, and
several years before had faced
charges for shooting out the
windows of a Cadillac owned by a
black man, purportedly because

Life of Polish Jews Illuminated
Jeanne Kallman
Jeanne Kallman is one of those women who is not content to
be involved in the work of one organization, but rather is a
generous volunteer for many charitable groups that work for the
betterment of the Jewish people. Jeanne serves her Hadassah
chapter in various capacities she is the leader of a study
group and is both the Education and Program Chairperson She
is a member of ORT and the Sisterhood of Congregation B'nai
Israel in St. Petersburg. Jeanne is, in addition, an ardent sup-
porter of Pioneer Women, Israel Bonds, and the United Jewish
Appeal. She is also a newly elected member of the Board of Di-
rectors of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County.
Jeanne was born in London, England where her parents
Annie and Harris Cohen, settled after leaving Poland. The
family moved to Toronto, Canada where she was educated and
where she met her husband Samuel. Jeanne received a thorough
Jewish education and was always an ardent Zionist. Sam was a
teacher of Jewish education, and after their marriage the
Kallmans continued to be devout supporters of the Jewish state.
They have visited Israel four times, and in fact, once planned on
making aliyah. They bought a poultry farm in Toms River, New
Jersey, with the intention of learning the business, and then
moving to Israel and using their knowledge there. When Israel
was declared independent in 1948, the Kallmans hosted a party
in Toms River to celebrate, and they still remember the pride
and happiness they shared that day. The Kallmans sent incuba-
tors and whatever other machinery and equipment they could to
Israel, in order to help the fledgling poultry industry there.
While living in Toms River, Jeanne was the President of Pioneer
Women, President of the Teachers Guild, and President of
Deborah Hospital Club, which raised funds for the Deborah
Hospital. Sam was active in the Jewish Community House, and
served as its recording secretary and President of the choir.
Ask Jeanne what her passions are and she will tell you the
I'iano, which she studies and practices whenever time permits,
and her family. Jeanne is one of nine children, all surviving, and
living in Canada, New York, and Florida. The Kallmans are
fortunate to frequently visit and be visited by sisters, brothers,
nieces, nephews, etc. Jeanne and Sam have one son Paul, who
lives with his wife Maxine in North Miami Beach, three grand-
children and one great grandchild.
The Jewish federation welcomes Jeanne as a member of the
Hoard, and looks forward to informed and dedicated par-
ticipation.

NEW YORK (JTA)
Long-lost documents
and artifacts illuminating
1,000 years of Jewish life in
Poland, the cradle of Juda-
ism in Europe, will be
available to scholars and
researchers for the first
time under the terms of an
agreement signed by the
University of Warsaw and
the Union of American He-
brew Congregations
(UAHC).
Polish diplomatic officials,
Jewish scholars and the chairman
of the National Endowment for
the Humanities, Joseph Duffey,
were among some 75 persons who
watched as Prof. Henryk Sam-
sonowicz, rector of the University
of Warsaw, and Rabbi Alexander
Schindler. president of the
UAHC, signed the two-page
agreement at the House of Living
Judaism, headquarters of the Re-
form Jewish congregational
group.
BELIEVED to be the first be-
tween a university in Eastern
Europe and a Jewish religious
body, the agreement will for the
first time provide American
scholars with access to and the
right to copy materials currently
in the possession of the Polish
government, the Catholic Church
in Poland and various Polish uni-
versities.
These materials include works
of art, literature, history, law,
music and philosophy, along with
official Jewish community ar-
chives, such as the records of the
Judenrat of Lublin during the
Nazi occupation.
The agreement also calls for
"joint research" by the Univer-
sity of Warsaw and the UAHC in
specified areas of Jewish scholar-
ship, including "historical prob-
lems of Judaism."
THE AGREEMENT was
worked out during negotiations
in the United States and Poland
among Rabbi Philip Hiat, assist-
ant to the president of the
UAHC; Philip Miller, librarian
at the New York branch of the
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion; and Prof.
Witold Tyloch, chairman of the
Department of Hebrew studies in
the Institute of Oriental Studies
at the University of Warsaw.
Assisting in the negotiations
were representatives of IREX,
the International Research and
Exchange Board, and YIVO, the
Yiddish Scientific Institute.
Hailing the agreement,
Schindler said at a reception fol-
lowing the signing that within a
period of 60 months the Nazis put
to death three million Jews and
destroyed all that had been
created over the course of 1,000
years. "What the Jewish com-
munity left behind will now be
studied by scholars who will have
immediate access to the relics of a
life that is no more but that is
our sacred duty to preserve," he
said.
Schindler displayed fragments
of Torah scrolls and Megilloth
(Scrolls of Esther, read during
the Jewish holiday of Purim) that
had survived the Nazi occupation
of Poland. He said Polish univer-
sity officials in Krakow and War-
saw had presented the scrolls as a
gift to the UAHC. The fragments
will be given, in turn, to a number
of Reform synagogues around the
country "as a memorial to the
vanished communities from
which they come," Schindler
said.
AN EXHIBITION of some
100 different relics of Jewish reli-
gious and cultural life in Poland
will be displayed at Harvard Uni-
versity's Widener Library in
December, during the UAHC's
national biennial convention,
Schindler said. Later, the ex-
hibition will be sent to other
cities, especially those with size-
able populations of Polish-
Americans.
HOW TO BE HAPPY AS A JEW
By RABBI
MORRIS KOBRINETZ
A number of years ago there appeared a revealing book by
John Knight, called "The Story of My Psychoanalysis:- John
Knight, the son of immigrant Jewish parents, lived in a ghetto
attended Cheder (Hebrew School) and aspired to fit into the
polite Gentile society. Somehow he couldn't make it. In his book
he writes, "You cant be happy as a Jew until you stop fighting
being a Jew. You must end the vicious cycle of insecurity;
anxiety; frustration. Instead, you must try to resolve your
conflicts about "being" Jews, and you must make sure your
children find happiness in being Jews."
How do you pursue Jewish happiness? The first link in the
cham of Jewish happiness is the word: Self Acceptance.' What
does this mean? To accept oneself as a Jew, means to stop wish-
ing you were something else. That is what some Jews do. They
have imagmitis.' They try to be social climbers. Accepting one-
self as a Jew involves renouncing any ideas about being someone
else. Be healthy minded, be a real person. Self discovery and self
acceptance are primary.
Jean Paul Sartre, the French existentialist, wrote some
years ago a brilliant book: "Anti-Semite and Jew." He pointed
out that Jews have a common bond that transcends the relig-
ious, or cultural, or national, or ethnic. He further writes: The
Jews have one thing in common with each other. Their situation
I hey live in a community which takes them for Jews. To be a
Jew, Sartre says is to be thrown into the situation of a Jew,'
_. The question is "What kind of a Jew shall he or she be?"
wii w r I rebel "B*""1 *& k. attempt to escape it? Or
shall he or she accept the situation, assume the responsibilities it
imposes and live happily, gracefully, and meaningfully?
This, Sartre says, is the authentic Jew.' The inauthentic
Jews, are those whom others take for Jews but who have de-
cided to run away from an intolerable situation. These follow the
avenue of flight. They have an inferiority complex about being a
Jew, they never accept themselves as Jews. They fear their
actions, mannerisms, names which stereotype them with the
label Jewish.
The inauthentic Jew plays at not' being Jewish and assi-
milate beyond the recognition as Jews. Yet society forces them
to remain fixed Jews and are victims of their own tension and
frustration.
The authentic Jew accepts oneself; ceases pretending what
he-she cannot be; accepts their situation; ceases to run away
from themselves or to be ashamed of their own people. He-she
are the informed Jew,' the educated Jew, the participating Jew
An authentic Jew (quoting from Sartre's interesting words)
may suffer minor discomforts over being discriminated Maybe
he can't get to the club, promotion or the commodation he
requests Let us hear the sermon of Shakespeare: "To thine

The dilemma Jews find themselves in is, how to be haDDv
with their Jewishness. How to accept themselves as Jews and
pursue Jewish happiness. We must feel a genuine sense of
loyalty to the Jewish people. Have a sense of belonging will
neutralize; the anxiety and inferiority. You can't run awayfrom
yourself. Wherever you go, take yourself along.
Where else can one find joy in the Jewish experience and
what does the true Jewish home mean? The proudtradition of
^KuTcJam!ly,,.Jhu,nor' ceremonies, observances on the
Shabbat, Seder, holidays? Yes, there is joy in Jewish life if you
want to seek it. There is Jewish happiness, if you choose to pur-
sue it. you can be happy as a Jew. Accept yourself, know your-
self, and appreciate yourself. *

Jerusalem's Future:
The Time is Now
There is more to the glory of the reunification of
Jerusalem in the Sixth-Day War of 1967 as a fact of
history. There is the statement by then-Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan that Israel had come home to
its ancient capital. And would never leave.
Those were the days when the world regarded
the Davidic victory as a breathtaking and noble
achievement. Those were the days prior to the 1973
Arab oil crunch.
In 1981. on occasion of the 14th anniversary of
the reunification of Jerusalem, the status of the city
is under international dispute, and Israel's erstwhile
admirers the European nations, the United States
are no longer either admirers or necessarily
friends. There is open talk about internationaliza-
tion, about giving Jerusalem a Free City status,
about modeling its future according to the status of
the Vatican in Rome.
But Israel's future must be Israel's present. Is-
rael recalls the ancient pledge: "If I foget thee, 0
Jerusalem .''Israel is not prepared to forget.
In a world that has a growing capacity to rewrite
history. Israel .and the Jewish people must stand
firm on Jerusalem. Not even the recent move legally
to establish Jerusalem as Israel's capital city, which
Israel should have made back in June, 1967, and
which in 1980 enraged the Arab petropowers and
their clients, will move Israel and the Jewish people
to withdraw from this symbolic commitment to Zion.
Prime Minister Menachem Begin said sometime
ago that Jerusalem is neither negotiable nor a sub-
ject for any further debate. Jerusalem is de facto and
de iure and ever shall be the light of the Jewish peo-
ple wherever they live. From Jerusalem shall come
forth Torah. That is the ancient seer's vision of the
future.
The future is now.
Britain's Perverted Role
A newly-declassified British document show;
that Great Britain "restrained" Jordan from reach-
ing an agreement with Israel in the year after the
Jewish State was established in 1948.
The Minister of Amman. Sir A. Kirkbaide, is
quattKl as having told then-Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin that "King Abdullah was personally anxious
to come to an agreement with Israel ... it was our
restraining influence which has so far prevented him j
from doing so."
Behind the dirty dealing was Britain's fear of \
losing its power and prestige in the Middle East
fear that "the Israelis might drag the Arab states !
into a neutral bloc and might even attempt to turn us
out of Egypt."
The horror of this document, which when it was
written showed unutterable contempt for the pros-
pect of peace and prosperity between Israel and the
Arabs, reminds us now of Britain's Lord Carrington.
Carrington is an avowed disciple of doing
business with the Palestine Liberation Organization,
which he hopes!to pursue actively with The Nine
when, in his six-month tenure as president of the
European Economic Community, it meets again
shortly to do a replay of its 1980 Venice Declaration
on this very same subject the PLO and "peace" ir
the Middle East.
Lord Carrington sees nothing wrong with the
PLO. In his book, they are not terrorists. We
suggest that Carrington instead turn his sights or
Belfast, Ireland, and take up the proposition that the
Irish Republican Army is not terrorist either. In
Belfast, Britain sings another tune. Why not do |
business with the IRA, if Israel is expected to do
business with the PLO? After all, what's sauce for
the goose ought to be sauce for the gander.

ALL OVER again, it's the oki
story about the chicken and the
egg. One will never know which
came first whether it was the
wretched outcome of the Yom
Kippur War that catapulted the
Arabs into a superior Middle
Eastern position. Or whether,
war .or not. they were already on
their way toward achieving a uni-
fied petrodiplomacy designed to
bring the industrialized nations
into a slavish dependency upon
their oil. And hence, to a ready
willingness to see Israel go down
the tubes.
In any case, it was Roger
Tamraz, the Lebanese graduate
of Harvard Business School and
a tour of duty in the U.S. with the
Merrill Lynch stockbrokers' firm,
who called the shots immediately
after the Yom Kippur War.
TAMRAZ ARGUED that the
Arabs have all the money in the
world, that the expertise of the
Jewish public relations experts
on Madison Ave. were about to
be bought with some of it, and
that before long the Israeli super-
man image would fade and give
rise to a new global Arab supre-
macy instead.
Whether or not the Tamraz
plan of operation in fact bore fruit
is beside the point because the
end he foresaw, Arab supremacy,
has turned out precisely as he
predicted it. The development
was virtually contiguous with the
brilliant victory that the Israelis
finally scored in the 1973 war
against Egypt, and the hu-
miliating peace agreement they
were forced to sign in order to
help save Egyptian face a
strange role for the victor.
It was this agreement that
paved the way for the revisionist*
of history, paradoxically Anwai
Sadat among them, to recast Um
war as a brilliant Arab victory
and as the initial giant atop
toward castrating the erstwhile
Israeli, superman. Paradoxical
because, among all the Arabs, it
is Sadat alone who later entered
into what is supposed to be a per
manent peace agreement based
on the Camp David accords.
ALL OF these considerations
ire paramount to an understand-
ing of the Israeli-Syrian dla
today. In the Yom Kippur War, it
was not the Israeli high com-
mand but the U.S. State Depart-
ment that instructed Israel when
it should call a halt to its military
operations in the field. (That was
what the face-saving gesture was
all about.)
In the current struggle Be-
tween Syria and Israel, once
again it is American foreign
policy that has overridden Is-
rael's national decision-making
processess this time to dictate
whether or not the Israelis should
opt for war at all and. if yes. just
when.
The question of just when is
central to Israel's military cam-
paigns in the past, all of which,
with the exception of the 1973
war when Egypt took the initia-
tive, have relied on the element of
therapeutic surprise.
The Habib shuttle these past
few weeks has not only destroyed
this element; to say the least, it
has given Syria every op-
portunity to make advance
preparation for war. particularly
in concert with the Soviet Union.
WHAT THIS says about Is-
rael is that it has been down-
graded as a nation. From the
1948 War of Independence to the
Yom Kippur War in 1973, the Is-
raelis achieved a legendary record
of military successes and a con-
comitant chorus of western
world praise, part of it rooted in a
sense of guilt about the Holo-
caust, part of it encouraged by
the universal desire to see the
underdog survive and prevail.
There is little doubt that the
Realpolitik governing the
voracious western appetite for oil
has contributed heavily to this
downgrading process. But Prime
Minister Begin's most recent
military posturings his
repeated threats to move when it
is dear that without a Reagan
Administration okay he can not
move have also contributed to
it.
While, in the past, the Arabs
have been the Middle East's
traditional mice that roared, Is-
rael was never among them.
Today, by virtue of these Begin
posturings, his country joins the
Arab brood in muscle-flexing
contests designed purely for pub-
he demonstration.
DOES THIS mean that Israel
is little more than an American
satellite today, a sop to the Hok>
caust limited to whatever suits
western interests in the Middle
East?
At this point, the answer is
most likely no, the central
consideration being the emer-
gence of a phenomenal military
technology that was unheard of
even as late as the 1973 war a
military technology that was
clearly at the root of the Habib
shuttle to ward off a war the con-
sequences of which are difficult to
foretell.
The new technology not only
suggests difficulty in limiting
the extent of proliferation to
which a given military option
may give rise, but the way in
which it proliferates, bringing the
battlefield to urban population
centers as a clear possibility. In
the past, the capacity for this
kind of proliferation was open
only to the superpowers, with
their vast armadas of bombers
and fighter planes and ICBM's.
TODAY, the devastating
power and the miniaturization of
the new technology opens up
such operations even to smaller-
scaled armed forces organizations
and emphasizes the need for
greater caution than ever before
prior to a national commitment
to war. That is why, for example,
terrorist organizations are so
frightening. Just a few men can
accomplish what it took large
armies to accomplish in the past,
and they feel no need to exercise
caution under any circumstance*
In contrast, the superpowers,
themselves, feel the sort of
constraints set upon their mil-
itary options that they bar*
never felt before. And since mat-
sive destructive capability is
longer their exclusive province,
nations the small size of Israel
must be particularly careful to
bend to these constraints.
Understood in these terms, tha
downgrading of Israel's military
might, whether real or the result
of the public relations trickery"
the Roger Tamraxes of the Arto
world, is not something to w
overly concerned about; so M
everyone's military might been
downgraded.
WHAT 18 more, from an op-
timistic point of view, high t*-
nology, which lies at the root oi
the new generation of toW
weaponry, is a surprising area

pertise. In itseifT therefore. IJ

How Effective is Germany's Answer to Neo-Nazism?
By FRANK REISS pression) of the Basic Law of the
The Federal Republic Federal Republic of Germany
of Germany, like the re8t of (19491 states: "Everyone shall
Western Europe, i8 COn- have the right to freely express
fronted by increasingly SifSH![AflJ**ta
iolent neo-Nazism and
other right-wing ex-
tremism. How prepared is
it to answer the challenge?
The justice system in Ger-
many, it has been suggested
allegorically, has had much
littler vision in its left eye than in
the right one. More than at any
other time since World War II,
reality demands that this
deficiency be corrected and
there is an indication that the
determination exists to do just
Ihut.
IT MUST be remembered that
we are talking about a nation re-
sponsible for murdering six mil-
lion Jews, a nation which in 1933
had 500.000 Jews, and today has
only some 30,000. We are talking
boot a nation once ruled by
Hitler's insane racism, which
blamed Jews for all evil in the
world, for Germany's defeat in
World War I, and for its in-
flation, as well as for the world
economic crisis and the Bolshevik
Revolution, supposedly a Jewish
machination.
The ideological imprint of '
Na/.ism on the national mind was
so strong, so deadly and so
persistent that its residues still
survive, providing the foundation
for activities by the heirs of that
dark era. The goal of the neo-
Nazis today is to finish the task
Hitler set for the Third Reich.
Since this aim seems unattain-
able through the normal political
process, terrorism is their an-
swer.
Neo-Nazi incidents have risen
from 136 in 1974. to 206 in 1975.
119 in 1976. 616 in 1977. 992 in
1(178, and 5.400 in 1979. Most of
ihm involved desecration of
Jewish cemeteries and painting
swastikas in public places.
GERMAN lawmakers, aware
when they drew up their con-
stitution that anti-Semitism and
other forms of bigotry and hatred
did not disappear with the demise
of the Third Reich, provided
certain legal mechanisms. For
example. Article (Freedom of Ex-
speech, writing and pictures
"and goes on to say: These
rights are limited by the
right of inviolability of personal
honor."
Article 18 (Forfeiture of Basic
Rights) declares: "Whoever
abuses freedom of expression of
opinion ... in order to combat
free democratic basic order, shall
forfeit these basic rights." (Inci-
dentally, such provisions are in
full harmony with the philosophy
of the German philosopher,
Immanuel Kant, who holds that
freedom should be restricted to
the extent that it may interfere
with the rights of others.)
Ideas, of course, cannot be out-
lawed no matter how malevolent
they may be. but their dis-
semination can be halted as a
way of thwarting building blocks
for neo-Nazi ideologies. Accord-
ingly, the Penal code outlaws the
spread and use of former
National Socialist organizational
propaganda and artifacts.
THE LAW, however, has loop-
holes. It can be evaded, for ex-
ample, by maintaining that the
prohibited Nazi propaganda
material is imported. Indeed, the
neo-Na/.i weekly National
Zeitung has for years been pub-
lishing articles by American and
other foreign "experts" who
present "scientific" evidence that
there was no Nazi death
machinery during World War II.
To slop this practice, the ruling
Social Democrat Party and its
coalition partner, the Free
Democrats, have reached agree-
ment on a draft law prohibiting
the import of neo-Nazi
propaganda material into the
Federal Republic.
If enacted into law, as ex-
priii'd. the dissemination of
literature denying the existence
of gas chambers under Hitler
would become more difficult. It
would also ban propaganda
material provided to the neo-
Nazis by the Palestine Liberation
Organization. which

right-wing extremists in West
Germany.
While the general public often
talks and writes about extreme
rightist organizations and neo-
Nazis as if they were inter-
changeable, the Federal Govern-
ment carefully differentiates be-
tween them. Interestingly
enough, while extreme rightist
organizations have decreased
during the past two years both in
numbers of separate groups and
their memberships, neo-Nazi
rosters have increased.
AN EXAMPLE of significant
membership decrease is to be
found in the largest right-wing
extremist organization in Ger-
many, the National Democratic
Party (NDP), whose membership
dropped from 28,000 in 1969 to
8.000 in 1980.
The rise in neo-Nazi member-
ship can perhaps explain the in-
crease of incidents which are
more anti-Semitic in character
than acts commited by other
right-wing groups whose activi-
ties are targeted more against
foreign laborers e.g., Turks,
, Greeks and Spaniards.
Attention
Students
The Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County has brochures
available regarding summer
programs in Israel. These include
programs sponsored by the
Hebrew University, American
Zionist Youth Foundation, In-
ternational Graduate Center for
Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and
the Kibbutz Programs.
If you are interested, or would
like more information, call the
Federation office at 446-1033.
Statistically, the following
picture emerges. In 1977, there
were 83 extreme rightist
organizations with 17,800 mem-
bers, as contrasted with 17 neo-
Nazi groupings with 900 mem-
bers. In 1978, the extreme right-
ist organizations had declined to
67, with a membership of 17,600.
the neo-Nazi groupings had risen
to 25, with a membership of
1.300.
Statistics also indicate that 76
percent of all right-wing incidents
have been committed by neo-
Nazis, even though they com-
prise less than 10 percent of the
total of the extreme right.
ACCOMPANYING the in-
crease in neo-Nazi activities has
!>een a discernible increase in
criminal proceedings against the
perpetrators instituted between
1975-79. Available statistics for
1979 are incomplete, but at the
end of 1978 preliminary pro-
ceedings had been initiated in 600
cases as compared to 317 in 1977.
Sentences were passed in 141
instances as compared with 91 in
1977. In the first half of 1980,
according to the Federal Minister
of Interior, sentences against
neo-Nazis were up 43 percent as
compared with the first half of
1979.
Even with an organization out-
lawed and its members sentenced
to jail, the task of eradicating
extremism is not fully completed.
The underground, supported by
the well-financed and organized
community of international
terrorism, always manages to go
' on functioning.

Grandfathers to Celebrate Bar Mitzvah
Congregation Beth Sholom of
Gulfport will be the scene of the
Bar Mitzvah of two of its senior
members at the Sabbath services,
Saturday, June 13.
William Nudelman of Largo
was born in Russia, coming to
this country in 1920. His boy-
hood recollections include wit-
nessing atrocities perpetrated
against his family and other Jews
by Russian soldiers. His family
settled in Cleveland, Ohio where
he became a prominent home
builder. He and his wife, Jean,
came to the St. Petersburg area
in 1968. They are active members
of the Congregation, he having
held posts as a member of its
Board of Trustees and as presi-
dent and currently as Treasurer
of its Men's Club.
Samuel. Vogel was born and
raised in Cleveland, migrating to
this area, with his wife, Rose, in
1975. He was employed in the
United States Postal Service in
supervisory capacities for 40
years until his retirement. He too
is an active member of the
Congregation, presently serving
as First Vice President of the
Congregation and as president of
its Men's Club.
These men, now grandfathers,
did not have the opportunity to
study for Bar Mitzvah when they
were boys. However, under the
tutelage of Rabbi Sidney I.
Lubin, spiritual leader of the
Congregation, they undertook
the intensive study necessary
and will now achieve their
cherished goal.
The public is welcome to the
service which commences at 9

Cairo Meeting
Hope Expressed For Multi-National Force
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM
(JTA) Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir believes an
agreement is possible in
Cairo between the United
States, Israel and Egypt on
the multinational force to
police Sinai after Israel's
withdrawal is completed
next April. Shamir said the
parties "will try perhaps to
reach a draft agreement
and this would then be fol-
lowed by a signing cere-
mony apparently in Wash-
ington. We don't know
when."
Shamir spoke to reporters after
meeting with Michael Sterner,
U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary
of State for Near East and South
Asia, who is orchestrating the
complex negotiations on the
multinational force.
STERNER HIMSELF told
the press that "Many points have
been resolved. Some have not
and that's what we'll be tackling
in the days ahead." He said
Israel and Egypt were "both pro-
ceeding in a constructive spirit
... 1 find that both sides desire
to proceed with these negotia-
tions quite independentlv of re-
gional developments whether in
Lebanon or anywhere else."
Sterner said he was "very
pleased" with what had been
achieved to date, in his two days
of talks here and in earlier meet-
ings he held in Cairo. These
included a two-hour session with
President Anwar Sadat '
Sterner will head the American
team in the tripartite talks at the
Mena House Hotel in Cairo.
Israel's delegation will be chaired
by Foreign Ministry Director
Genral David Kimche, and the
Egyptians will be led by Foreign
Ministry Undersecretary Osama
El-Baz, a key figure throughout
the peace process. The Israeli and
Egyptian teams will include mili-
tary men and legal aides.
ISRAELI SOURCES say the
negotiations are especially com-
plicated because a multinational
force of this kind not related to
any extant binding framework
such as the UN, NATO, or the
Warsaw Pact is in fact un-
precedented in international re-
lations.
Among the problems that this
raises are: discipline within the
force, across national lines; the
ability of any contributing state
to withdraw its contingent with-
out reference to the other states
or to Israel and Egypt; and fin-
ancing the force.
Sterner was reluctant to
discuss details of the negotia-
tions, but he disclosed that fin-
nancing was one of the issues still
on the agenda and unresolved.
Another issue was to what extent
the force would use facilities that
Israel will leave behind when it
pulls out of Sinai in April, 1982.
Israeli sources said one idea
being aired is for the force to have
a military commander
probably not American and in
addition a civilian director-
general who probably would be
an American.
IT IS NOT yet clear what
other countries in addition to the
U.S. will agree to participate in
the force. But high Israeli sources
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that a number of
countries which the U.S. had ap-
proached have indicated a
positive response. Sterner said
that not all the responses had yet
been received.
The American diplomat said he
had "every expectation" that the
force would be in place and oper-
ational before the final withdraw-
al date. Israel has said publicly
that the force is an intergral part
of the peace treaty and that it
would refuse to make the final
withdrawal unless and until the
force is in place.

Dear Mrs. K:
t To quote a truism, "History can and often does repeat
Itself." As far back as the Moorish Inquisition directed against
The Jews in 1492, there has been a history of various acts of
Holocaust committed upon the Jewish Community. Often the
Uewish Community did not recognize and accept the utter shock
f'f reality until it was too late. Continuing to reach out and
educate us about the past is the best weapon with which to fight
fndifferance.

AND HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban offered the Palestinian
peopk a dialogue and urged full
autonomy for ihem on thi West
Hank and Gaza Strip but firmly
rejected any Israeli negotiations
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
"Our stand is clear: No to the
PLO, yes to the moderate Pales-
tinians," Eban told a group of
political reporters here Sunday to
whom he spelled out the differ-
ences between Labor Alignment
policies and those of the Likud-
led government.
Eban, who many expect will be
named Foreign Minister should
Labor win the June 30 Knesset
elections, agreed on at least one
point with Likud hawk Moshe
Arens, chairman of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee.
ARENS SAID Sunday that
the outcome of the Palestine
National Council conference in
Damascus and the resolutions it
adopted proved the futility of the
European view that the Palestine
Liberation Organization was
moderating its position.
Eban said that the sharply
worded anti-Israel resolutions in
Damascus proved that Israel was
correct in objecting to the Euro-
pean Economic Community's
(EEC) Middle East initiative
which calls for PLO "associa-
tion" in the peace process.
He asserted that "Europe has
not shown any rigor in its
dialogue with the Palestinians.
Instead of according recognition
to the PLO on the basis of the
PLO's extremist policies, at-
titudes and tactics, the European
community should have refused
any such recognition. It should,
have argued that its refusal was
based upon the unacceptable
ideology and terrorist policy of
the PLO. Therefore. Europe has
undermined its own bargaining
power if it ever wants to bring
about a change in the Palestinian
community."
FOREIGN Ministry circles
said last week that they had been
told by certain European
countries which they declined to
name that the outcome of the Da-
mascus conference would
"surprise Israel" by its modera-
tion. Arens said that the anti-
Israel resolutions that emerged
from the Damascus gathering
should surprise no one.
He suggested that the Damas-
cus conference might have
provided "a lesson for some of
the European community, or for
the British who have seemed to
be living under the delusion or
illusion that the PLO could
moderate its position, that it was
only a matter of being nice to
them..."
Eban told reporters that the
gap between Labor and Likud
was wider than that between any'
opposition and coalition
anywhere in the Western world.
"The choice is between a line
which makes Israel breathe into
her lungs a million and a quarter
Arabs, despite their will, and the
line which refrains from returning
to the pre-1967 borders but
without imposing Israel's perma-
net rule." He called for speedy re-
sumption of the autonomy talks
with Egypt, with the aim of
granting the Palestinians full
autonomy
BEYOND that. Eban said, the
principle of territorial com-
promise should be added as
another option on top of the
Camp David agreements. He
rejected criticism of Labor's
proposed "Jordanian option" on
grounds that Jordan has shown
no sign of wanting to negotiate
with Israel. "One cannot expect
an Israeli political party to tailor
its political platform according to
the wishes of an Arab country,"
Eban said.
He added, however, that the
Palestinian problem cannot be
solved without taking into con-
sideration the position of factors
east of the Jordan River, just as
one cannot reach a peace
arrangements with Jordan
without solving the Palestinian
problem. Eban observed that a
position of territorial compromise
would be more readily accepted
by world public opinion than the
policies of the present govern-
ment.

Begin Denies There's 'American
Plan' to Resolve Crisis
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM -
(JTA) The Cabinet met
in special session for two
hours to review the latest!
proposals presented by
U.S. special envoy Philip
Habib to resolve the missile
crisis between Israel and
Syria. Cabinet Secretary
Arye Naor told reporters
afterwards that decisions
were taken "which increase
the prospects for a peaceful
resolution of the crisis." He
gave no details.
Premier Menachem Begin was
scheduled to meet with Habib
later to inform him of the
Cabinet's decision and then to
make a statement to the press
after the meeting. Begin and
Habib met shortly after the
American diplomat returned to
Israel from talks in Damascus.
He also visited Riyadh, Saudi
Arabi, last weekend in an ap-
parent effort to enlist the Saudis
to exert their influence on Presi-
dent Hafez Assad of Syria for a
paceful solution.
THE PRIME Ministers Office

'American plan" or any other

Israel Wants Rollback,
Evron Says in D.C.
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Ephraim Evron,
Israel's Ambassador to the
United States, declared
here that Israel will do
everything that "is
humanly possible" to
achieve a peaceful solution
t the crisis in Lebanon, but
warned Israel "cannot tole-
rate" the security threat
posed by the Syrian anti-
aircraft missiles.
"All we ask Syria is to go back
to the situation that existed
before the hostilities that were
launched by them in early April,"
Evron told the more than 1,000
persons attending a dinner at the
22nd annual policy conference of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
THE ISRAELI Ambassador
declared that "Israel has always
maintained that the territorial in-
tegrity and sovereignty of Leba-
non should be upheld and
respected." But he said Israel
"can not sit by and watch" Leba-
non be occupied by another
country or used as a terrorist
base against Israel, or watch the
Christian population there being
"annihilated" and "do nothing."

In addition to AIPAC mem-
bers from across the country, the
audience which heard Evron
included members of the House
and Senate, representatives of
Jewish groups from other
countires, a large contingent
from the Israel Embassy, two
Israel Knesset members, and
three officials from the Egyptian
Embassy.
Those on the dias included
representatives from the White
House and three Assistant Secre-
taries of State. Lawrence Wein-
berg, president of AIPAC, noted
that American support for Israel
has always been "broad-based
and bi- partisan."
THE MAJOR issue for the
delegates was the Regan Admin-
istration's proposed sale to Saudi
Arabia of AW ACS and enhance-
ment equipment for the 62 F-15
fighter planes previously pur-
chased. Weinberg, while praising
the Administration's general
attitude toward Israel, said the
AIPAC members were "dis-,
mayed and in total opposition" to .
the arms package.
Evron touched only briefly on
the proposed sale, saying he
hoped the Administration "will
reconsider the idea." He said the
sale will not enhance the security
position of the United States and
will eventually pose a "very
serious security problem for
Israel."
limitation of Israel Air Force
flights over Lebanon. A spokes-
man insisted that no such idea
was even raised in Begin's talks
with Habib.
But Israel Radio broadcast
what it said were "elements" of
the proposals Habib has carried
in his round of shuttle diplomacy
between Jerusalem and Arab
capitals. They included cessation
by Israel of operational flights
over Lebanon as distinguished
from high altitude intelligence-
gathering flights which would be
allowed to continue, according to
Israel Radio.
It was intimated that the
restriction applied only to eastern
and northern Lebanon and that
Israel would remain free to
continue its operational missions
against Palestinian terrorists in
South Lebanon.
Begin also for the first time
spoke openly of the presence of
Soviet advisers to Syrian troops,
together with platoons of 3,600
Syrian tanks, prepared to do
battle in Lebanon.
DEPUTY DEFENSE Minister
Mordechai Zipori said that he
had no information of any of-
fensive deployment of Syrian
forces in Lebanon He told the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee that the
Syrians may want war but at this
state their military build-up was
defensive in nature.
He said the Syrians have re-
inforced their anti-aircraft
batteries and armored units and
were fortifying their positions in
the Sannine mountain range. But
according to Zipori, the Syrians
are no longer using helicopter in
offensive operations against
Christian forces in the Lebanese
mountains.
Meanwhile, a United Nations
source in York said that Israel
and Syria have agreed to a six-
month extension of the United
Nations Disengagement Ob-
server Force on the Golan
Heights. The 1.250-man force
made up of contingents from
Austria, Finland, Canada and
Poland has been supervising the
disengagement agreements
entered into by Syria and Israel
in May, 1974.

dren had to leave their homes and '
move to the Israeli sector of the
city. The bleakest period on the
history of the quarter had begun.
When Jerusalem was reunited
in June, 1967 after the Six-Day
War, a third of the Jewish Quar-
ter was found to be in ruins. All
synagogues were completely
desecrated, public buildings
vandalized. Those buildings still
standing were not fit for habita-
tion, even though 4,000 Arab res-
idents of the city were living in
them, without any public ser-
vices.
THE COURSE of action to be
taken was obvious. It was impos-
sible to leave the quarter as it
was. It was unthinkable to
abandon it. The quarter had to be
rebuilt, and the Israel Govern-
ment created a special body to do
the job: the Company for the Re-
construction and Development of
the Jewish Quarter in the Old
City of Jerusalem.
A weighty name, but nothing
compared to the weight of the
task before it. Shalom Gardi,
chief architect of the company,
surrounded by blueprints and
seated under the vaulted ceiling
of the Rothschild building, one of
the first to be reconstructed,
describes the three problems his
team was faced with.
First, there was the architec-
tural-aesthetic approach to be
followed in rebuilding the
quarter. It would have been a
simple matter to lay out a grid of
parallel and intersecting streets
and put up modern apartments
and shops. But the quarter forms
part of the overall pattern of the
Old City, and its network of
alleys and the physical texture of
its buildings are one with those of
the other quarters.
The characted and atmosphere
of the quarter are determined by
the play of light and shade re-
sulting from winding alleys and
covered passages, indoor court-
yards and small squares. The ar-
chitecture abounds in arches,
domes and vaults all shapes
that require expertise in con-
struction. While living quarters
obviously had to be up to
present-day standards, it was
clear that all the traditional
elements of the Old City architec-
ture had to be preserved no
small challenge to the planning
team.
THE SECOND problem was
providing modern engineering
facilities, such as sewerage,
drainage, water pipes, electric
and telephone cables, and TV
cables from a central antenna. All
these have been laid under-

ground, at great expense, thus
avoiding unsightly modern intru-
sions into the traditional
countenance of the quarter.
Thirdly, there was the problem
of archaeological finds. The area
has been settled ever since the
eighth century BCE, but the
density of its population in recent
centuries had made excavations
impossible. It was clear that re-
construction could not be under-
taken without letting the archae-
ologists avail themselves of this
one-time chance to unearth the
secrets of the past. The results of
their digs have been no less
exciting to the layman than to
the diggers themselves, and
include a city wall dating from
the Iron Age, patrician resi-
dences of the Upper City, the
Cardo, a main thoroughfare built
by the Romans, and parts of an
enormous Byzantine church of
the six century CE.
As many as possible of the
finds will be incorporated in
basements of the new and recon-
structed buildings of the quarter,
and will be open to the public,
and this, of course, constitutes an
added complication and challenge
to the planners.
THE RECONSTRUCTED
quarter has been planned as a
residential area (as it has been in
the past) for 2,600 persons (630
families). In addition, some 1,500
study in religious and education-
al institutions. The Jewish
Quarter has great traditional
value for Jews, and is close to one
of their holiest shrines, the
Western Wall. Thus a large
tourist flow is to be taken into
account, resulting in a high pro-
portion of commercial floor area
and appropriate street layout.
The houses of the quarter are
terraced along the slopes of the
mountain, many of them facing
the Temple Mount with its view
of the Dome of the Rock and the
Western Wall. Beyond them is
the skyline of the Mount of
Olives and Mount Scopus.
Apartments are grouped around
courtyards, and are stacked in a
roughly pyramidal of habitat
shape, leaving room for many
patios and roof terraces. The
houses are served by a network of
narrow winding alleys that some-

Historic Reunification
Took Place 14 Years Ago
On the morning of
June 5, 1967, Jordanian
forces began shelling West
Jerusalem, and advancing
in and around the Jeru-
salem area. Within 48
hours, a successful Israeli
counterattack sliced
through Jordanian lines
and recaptured East
Jerusalem.
For the first time in 19 years,
Jews again prayed at the
Western Wall the last remnant
of the temple built by King
Solomon. The entire nation sang
Jerusalem of Gold, the song
which was written before the war,
and expresses the tremendous
longing for the*city. Barricades
were dismantled, and Jeru-
salem's Jews and Arabs came
into contact once again. On June
28, the government officially an-
nounced the city'8 reunification.
Yom Yerushalayim was estab-
lished according to the Jewish
calendar as the annual com-
memoration of this reunification.
"We earnestly stretch out our
hands to our Arab brethren in
peace," said then-Minister of
Defense Moshe Dayan on June 7,
1967. "We have returned to Jeru-
salem never to part fro her
again."
Since Jerusalem's reunifi-
cation, Israel has expended
considerable resources on pre-
serving and restoring the tra-
ditionally beautiful appearance of
the entire city. In the Old City,
new sewers saved part of the Via
i Dolorosa from collapse. Similary,
decaying overhead arches atop
many streets have been saved
and restored. Thousands of tons
of accumulated debris have been
removed from the inner city, and
the outer wall is being repaired to
its original splendor. The ma-
liciously-destroyed .Jewish
Quarter is being renewed to its
former glory, rebuilt with pains-
taking authenticity irf/brder to
preserve the uniqueness) tof the
area Rehabilitation work and
new construction alike through-
out the city have" been carefully
designed to blend in with and
preserve Jerusalem's natural
character and beauty.
The city's Arabas have greatly
benefited from reunification. Is-
rael has provided them with
responsive government,! greater
political freedom than they have
ever known, and economic,
educational and health improve-
ments. Their housing, water
supply, employment standards
and standard of living have made
tremendous advances.
Since 1967, for the first time in
thousands of years, full freedom
of access exists for all human
beings regardless of race or reli-
gion, who wish to visit the Holy
City. Today, in part because of
Israel's "Open Bridges" policy,
anyone can come to Jerusalem,
irrespective of what visas appear
on his passport.
PLANS FOR Jerusalem's
future are almost as diverse as
the city's residents. Bearing in
mind that Jerusalem is the
eternal capital of the Jewish peo-
ple, it is now, more than ever in
'the past 4,000 years, a truly open
city.

Views Syria as
Important
Country9
WASHINGTON (JTAt -
The State Department maintains
that it considers Syria "an im-
portant country" for solving the
civil war in Lebanon. State De-
partment spokesman Dean
Fischer said that the takeover by
the Syrian Army of two high
mountain points in Lebanon was
"a change in the status quo" but
he refused to condemn Syria
specifically. When asked what
the United States position on
Syria was, Fischer did not
respond at the time.
Later, the Department issued a
statement saying: "Syria is ob-
viously an important country in
this area of the world and she has
a responsibility for helping to re-
turn peace to Lebanon." Noting
that the U.S. considers the situa-
tion in Lebanon "extremely
complex," the statement stressed
that the U.S. wants "maximum
restraint by all the parties in
Lebanon, so as to end the
violence and further political ef-
forts for a solution."
The statement reiterated the
U.S. policy is aimed at
strengthening the central
government of Elias Sarkis
throughout the country and
"part of that goal is working
towards having the Lebanese
armed forces assume security
functions throughout the
country."

U.S. Pilots
Oppose Missile
Sale to Saudis
WASHINGTON (JTA> -
Twelve United States Air Force
F-15 pilots have written a Con-
gressman from California op
posing the proposed sale of
AIM9L super-Sidewinder air-to-
air missiles to Saudi Arabia
The letter was written to Rep
Tom Lantos ID Calif.) by the
airmen, all from the Holloman
Air Force Base in New Mexico,
who asked that their names not
be disclosed. Lantos said that the
letter demonstrates that the sales
"pose an intolerable threat to the
safety of the United States and
its fighting men."
A spokesman for Lantos said
the pilots decided to write to the
Congressman after they saw him
quoted in A nation Week in op-
postion to the missiles and fuel
tanks the United States proposes
to sell to Saudi Arabia for the 62
F 15s previously sold to Saudi
Arab*
"The unstable political situa-
tion in Iran and throughout the
Middle East led to the com-
promising of our F-14 aircraft.
Phoenix air-to-air missiles and
our Hawk surface-to-air
missiles." the pilots charged
"We do not want the technology
of theAIM9L to leak to the Sov-
iets through lack of security in
Saudi Arabia or through some
closed-door bargaining session.''

prohibited."

U.S. Jews 'Secure,'
AJComm. Report Declares
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Recent studies on anti-Semitism
undertaken by the American
Jewish Committee indicate that
"on balance the Jewish
position in the U.S. remains
secure," according to a report
just issued by the AJCommittee.
The number of anti-Semitic
incidents in the United States
has risen sharply in the past year,
the report states, but "AJCom-
mittee investigations indicate
... it would be a mistake to in-
terpret the recent outbreaks as
signaling a new and dangerous
wave of anti-Semitism in the
United States."
During 1980, continues the re-
port, entitled "Anti-Semitism in
America: A Balance Sheet, "377
anti-Semitic incidents were
reported in this country. These
acts, the paper points out, have
"stirred understandable fears" in
the American Jewish community,
but, the AJCommittee analysts
stress, they should be considered
"in the perspective of other
events taking place in this
country and abroad."
THE REPORT was prepared
by Alisa Kesten and Milton
Ellerin, of the AJCommittee'
discrimination division in its
domestic affair department, and
by Sonya Kaufer, director of
publications service.
Citing one "perspective," the
report notes that most of the
recent anti-Semitic events took
place after the highly publicized
bombing of a Paris synagogue,
und were mainly the work of "po-
litically uninvolved" teen-agers
whose actions seemed to be
"imitative" rather than a "per-
sonal expression of anti-Semitic
sentiment." The AJCommittee
report urges also that "the
current outbreak of anti-Semitic
vandalism ... be viewed against
the alarming increase in all kinds
of crimes.. ."
Turning to the question of
whether today's climate poses
any serious dangers to American
Jews, the AJCommittee s paper
recalls that "historically anti-
Semitism has constituted a
powerful threat only in those
countries where it has been
institutionalized in the laws and
tradition of the land," and then
points out that today "no organi-
zed hate groups have any appre-
ciable political or social influence
in this country receive media
attention far beyond what their
numbers and strength warrant
. There is no individual of
stature on the political scene
today who is an overt anti-
Semite."
THE REPORT then cites sta-
tistics garnered from opinion
polls and other researches in-
dicating that "the vast majority
of Americans are favorably
disposed toward their Jewish
fellow citizens"; that "more Jews
than ever before were elected
to Congress in 1980, and the
number of Jews serving in .
other political offices is too large
to trace," and that "in the
arts, sciences, business and
professions the same acceptance
is evident."
However, the AJCommittee
writers note, examining the other
side of the "balance sheet," there
continue to be developments
such as "anti-Israel and anti-
Semitic rhetoric" in the United
Nations and "attempts to deny
the Holocaust ever happened"
which, "like every reported case
of overt anti-Semitism .
require constant vigilance.
