Mideast Tensions Mount as Violence Escalates; Begin Forms Coalition
U.S. Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger led
off U.S. criticism oflsrael Prime Minister Menachem
Begin last week following two weeks of daily Israeli
raids against PLO stronghold while PLO guerrillas
continued to fire hundreds of Soviet-made rockets into
Israeli lowns along the Israeli-Lebanese border.
Weinberger said Begin "is not on a moderate course
it is an explosive situation."
Israeli Ambassador to the U.S.Ephraim Evron,
following a meeting with Secretary of State Alexander
M. Haig Jr., during which he learned that the U.S. has
suspended for the time being delivery of 10 F-16 fighter -
bomber jets scheduled for this month, said of Wein-
berger's comment: "1 think he's wrong in this case."
The following day, July 23, the Israel Cabinet disputed
other comments by Weinberger.
Deputy Secretary of State William Clark, a close
friend of Presiden Reagan, told reporters Begin is
making it difficult for the U.S. to continue its tra-
ditional support for Israel.
lie was quoted as saying: "Israel is simply not our
onl) Iriend in the area. You just don't ship gasoline to a
lire. We have something of a crisis on our hands."
Reports from Lebanon indicated that sophisticated
military weapons and missiles were being rushed to
PLO liases in the country from Russia by Libya and
Reagan Atom Policy
Syria. Egypt's President Anwar Sadat blamed Syria in
part for the escalating violence in the Mideast.
Israel staged ground, air and sea attacks for 14
straight days as it assaulted Palestinian Liberation
Organization forces and facilities in Southern Lebanon
On Tuesday, July 21, the Israeli Cabinet, in a
statement prepared following a meeting between Prime
Minister Menachem Begin and President Ronald
Reagan's special Mideast envoy Philip Habib, urged
the latter to seek "peaceful relations between Israel and
Lebanon.''
On the 15 th day of bombings and shellings, Friday,
, July 24, Habib arranged a cease-fire truce.
Meanwhile Begin is forming a new Cabinet, having
been directed to do so by President Yitzhak Navon on
the basis of the June 30 election which gave Begins
Likud block 48 seats in the 120-member Knesset to the
Labor Part's 47 seats. Begin, having won assurances
from the National Religious Party, the Agudat Israel
and Tumi parlies to join his coalition, has rejected the
Agudat Israel proposal to amend the Law of Return.
With the seals won by these three minor parties, Begin
will have a bare majority of 61 votes in the Knesset.
On the tensions that are mounting in the Mideast,
Habib responded to the Israel Cabinet statement by
saying he would "seek to secure a ceasefire along the
Israeli Lebanese border as a first step to bringing calm
to the area." He was reported trying to get Saudi Ara-
bia to use its inliuence in getting the PLO to stop shell-
ing Israel.
And in Saudi Arabia, the government announced it
would pay $20 million to the PLO and additional $20
million to Lebanon to help pay for the damage caused
by the Israeli air attacks.
Libya also announced it would replace any PLO and
Lebanese leftists weapons that were destroyed in the
raids.
And the U.S., it was announced by Secretary of State
, Alexander Haig, after conferring with President
Reagan and other high officials, that the F-16 planes
scheduled to be delivered to Israel would remain in the
United States until another study is made of the tense
situation in the Mideast.
Begin and Egypt President Anwar Sadat are
scheduled to make separate visits soon to the U.S. to
meet with President Reagan after which a new special
negotiator may be named to get the stalled Camp
David peace process moving again.
Just Sell 'Em More Reactors
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) President Reagan
has announced a policy to
avoid the spread of nuclear
weapons by encouraging
the export of nuclear
material, including breeder
reactors, to countries which
have an advanced nuclear
power program as long as
there are safeguards to pre-
vent the material from
being converted into weap-
ons.
Administration officials
stressed that such a policy would
give the U.S. greater "influence"
How the Latest Fighting
Began in Lebanon
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Three people were killed and
13 were wounded in a Katyusha rocket attack on the
coastal resort town of Nahariya. Rockets fired by Pal-
estinian terrorists based in Lebanon also hit the border
town of Kiryat Shemona. The casualties in Nahariya were
among people walking the streets or riding in cars, Israel
Radio reported. The names of the fatalities were not
immediately announced.
THE ATTACK followed a heavy Israeli air raid on
Palestinian targets near Damour south of Beirut. It was
the third Israeli air attack over Lebanon since the week-
end of July 11 and 12. The earlier attacks also touched off
retaliatory rocket barrages on towns and settlements in
northern Israel. Israeli artillery replied by pounding a
Palestinian base in south Lebanon.
There were no reports of casualties in Kiryat
Shemona where at least a dozen rockets hit the town and
its outskirts sending the populace into bomb shelters.
Military sources said later that 13 persons were injured in
the Katyusha rocket attack on Nahariya in addition to the
three killed. Earlier reports put the number of injured at
13. Several casualties were reported in Kiryat Shemona,
also hit by rockets, but the exact number was not given.
BOTH NAHARIYA and Kiryat Shemona sustained
severe property damage in what military sources de-
scribed as the heaviest attacks since the Yom Kippur
War.
United Nations sources said over 120 rockets rained
down on the two towns. Nahariya and Kiryat Shemona
are on a line with the Palestinian terrorist bases at
Damour on the Lebanese coast and Nabatiyeh, inland,
both of which were the targets of heavy Israeli air raids
July 14.
to persuade other countries not to
build nuclear weapons. "We must
establish this nation as predicta-
ble and reliable partner for peace-
ful nuclear cooperation under
adequate safeguards," Reagan
said in a statement issued by the
White House.
"THIS IS essential to our non-
proliferation goals. If we are not
such a partner, other countries
will lend to go their own ways
and our influence would diminish.
This would reduce our effective-
ness in gaining the support we
need to deal with the proliferation
problem" the statement said.
At a White House briefing,
Administration officials denied
that the policy announcement
was triggered by Israel's air
attack on Iraq's nuclear reactor
last month. Since the June 7 raid,
both those in Congress who have
denounced Israel's action and
those who have supported it have
been urging the Administration
to fashion a strong non-
proliferation program. Adminis-
tration officials said today that
the new policy had been "many
weeks" in the drafting.
Both the President and the
officials who explained his state-
ment emphasized that the non-
proliferation program was a con-
tinuation of the policies of past
Administrations. This included a
declared need to prevent the
spread of nuclear weapons, sup-
port of the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty and support
for the- International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA).
THE OFFICIALS conceded
that the IAEA needed strength-
ening both in the number of
inspectors and its inspection
procedures. At Congressional
hearings on the Israeli raid, a
former IAEA inspector, Roger
Richter, said the inspection could
not prevent a country from
diverting fuel for nuclear weap-
ons. The Administration officials
noted today that the IAEA a
"burglar alarm" which alerts the
international community when
such a diversion occurs.

Raising Money Is the Means
Saving Lives, Building a Nation
YOUTH ALIYAH:
A MATTER OF LIFE
lAbbal (Song in Hebrew)
Dr. Hiam Perry: Do you know
what you just heard? You head
Eli singing about his father. It's
not a tune that he picked up
somewhere, it's a melody, and
words that he himself wrote, he
himself performed, it's him
giving himself because Eli has a
father, but he really doesn't have
one. It is the image of father he
would like to have.
My name is Hiam Perry and I
am the Director of the Yamin
Ord. which is a Youth Aliyah, or
Aliyat Manor village: a Youth
Aliyah village is somewhat a
unique creation. I don't think you
can compare it to a regular
boarding school, it's a village
it's a place to live, a place to
identify with, to see as your
home. Yamin Ord is a kind of
microcosm of what Israel could
have been and should be. It has a
school, the children go to school
every monrning but the school is
separated somehow geo-
graphically, physically from the
living quarters which are the
homes. The children, about (241
in each home, live in small homes
14) in a room and each home
attached to it has a little flat, a
small flat in which a young
couple, the counselors, or we call
them The Me Chun, the edu-
cators live, they take care of the
children who live in their house,
from the underwear to the in-
tellect I would say.
We provide not only academic
education, we provide also voca-
tional education. It's a very
elaborate program, a child can
become an electrician in three
levels, practical level, semi-aca-
demic level and the highest level,
which enables him to continue in
the Techmon, or the Weitzmann
Institute, he can become an
artist, and continue in Betz Allil.
the School of Art in Jerusalem.
The child can become an indus-
trial laboratory worker also in
three levels.
We have (400 children around
here and you see it is a quiet
place You won't feel that 14001
children are on campus right now
because the rural set up somehow
conveys or creates an atmosphere
ol calmness We have over a (1001
children who came from Iran dur-
ing the last 117) months, not all
the stories about how they
arrived and how they have been
brought over, have yet been told,
but for many of these children tht
experiences that they went
through are so traumatic that
vou cannot be sure if they will
ever Ih- free from them.
Poorak: (Iranian Student) My
name is Poorak. I'm from
Teheran in Iran, I am here about
three months I came only with
my cousin. My family all are in
Iran or in America. My language
is Persian but the language which
speaking in is Ivrit, so I must
have to study very much. My
school my language, every-
thing, everybody are strange for
me. And it will take some time to
feel at home. All of my family
wanted that 1 come here because
if I stayed there I would have to
go to Army. I am happy to be
here. I don't want to goto Iran. I
hope my parents come here. I can
telephone once a month to Iran.
That's very good because if 1
don't have any news from my
family I will worry for my family.
Voice: Is everything well now
with your family?
Poorak: Now, yes. But 1 don't
know about tomorrow.
Dr. Hiam Perry: The kind of
children we deal with here are
defined in education literature,
generally as disadvantaged chil-
dren, the Israeli children, second
generation Israelis. dis-
advantaged or underprivileged.
Both are terms that tend to the
negative, they are dis or under
something, in Hebrew the term,
the equivalent term is Tevnai
Teepoach which means those
who require special nourishment,
which is a positive. I mean it is
not only semantics, it is an atti-
tude, it is a philosophy and
Youth Aliyah is really em-
bodying this philosophy is really
materializing it, is really doing
something about it. Those who
equire special nourishment.
Dorit: My name is Dorit. and
this is my second year in Yamin
Ord. I lived in Batyam. in Tel
Aviv, with my two brothers and
five sisters, in a three and a half
room apartment. I wanted to go
away to a boarding school be-
cause I felt I could no longer stay
at home. I was affected by all the
v tolence in my neighborhood, and
1 hung around with a lot of bad
people. 1 started smoking drugs,
and doing all the worst things
you can imagine. 1 was fooling
around a lot and didn't know, or
care, where I was going or what I
was doing.
In the beginning, drugs made
me feel good, and helped me to
forget everything that was
happening. Smoking took me
away from the violence around
me In my school at home, the
kids were terrible they didn't
respect the teachers. They would
hurt the teachers, and they didn't
allow them to teach, or to give
tests.
Here, in Yamin Ord. I am able
to concentrate on my studies. My
head is clear and 1 can forget
about everything that happened
back home. Now, I am in a place
where the people talk to me .
pay attention to me worry
about me and care about me.
I feel as if. for the first time. I am
getting all of the warmth and all
ot the best that everyone can give
me.
When 1 first cam here, I didn't
know how to act. and I did all
kinds of terrible things. I tried to
spoil friendships between people,
and I tried to hurt people. I was
afraid that I would be sent back
home. But everyone had a lot of
patience with me. They really
understood my fears.
Now, everything is different. I
| really like this place ... I like the
\ lew ... 1 like the trees ... I like
the people. I feel wonderful since
1 came here. 1 am a different per-
son Yamin Ord has given me a
new life.
Dr. Hiam Perry: Running a
village like ours is not easy in
these days, where maintenance
costs are shockingly high, and
everj' month you have to ask
yourself in what am I cutting
this month, what less could be
provided because you know I
won't touch the food, because
food is essential. I won't cut on
things like heating in the winter.
I can't cut on teaching, from
which shall I cut? Maintenance
worker? The children should do
more work than they do already
and then they will study less
again. Somebody tells me don't
send them to concerts or theater,
but what kind of what right do
1 have to to raise culturally
crippled Jews in Israel. This is
not what we are here for.

youth, with Jewish youth. It
means if there are parts among

How is Youth Aliyah working?
Youth Aliyah has a special in-
strument, this is the residential

among the Jews, there is 1 would
say a stigma that residential edu

dren, but this is not the attitude

Both Sides Initial Sinai

LONDON (JTA) The draft agreement on
multi-national peace force to police Sinai following Is-
rael's full withdrawal next year was initialed Friday by
senior Israeli, Egyptian and American officials at toe
U.S. Embassy in London.
DAVID KIMCHE, director general of the Israel For-
eign Minister, represent Israel; the U.S. sent Michael
Sterner, head of the State Departments Middle East
section; and Egypt was represented by Ambassador Al-
Shaah, Parliamentary Under secretary for Foreign Af-
fairs. Diplomats say London was chosen because it is the
central point between the three signing countries.
Under the Camp David agreements, a United Na-
tions force was to have replaced Israeli troops in Sinai-
This was opposed by the Russians, and after months of
discussions Egypt and Israel agreed to a mainly
American force but also including some Commonweal"

T.O.P. Jewish Foundation
LIKE FATHER
LIKE SON
Hypothetical: Sam and Sarah
Donorwitz have a son, Benjamin.
When Sam and Sarah were young
and Ben was growing up, Sam
purchased a considerable amount
of life insurance so that the
family could be adequately pre-
lected in the event of Sam's
untimely death. Sam is now 65
and Sarah is 60. Ben is an execu-
tive vice president of Chai corpo-
ration and earns a substantial
salary plus corporated benefits
which include a group term life
insurance policy in the amount of
$75,000. Ben, like his father be-
fore him, has purchased addition-
al life insurance to protect his
young family.
Both Sam and Ban are com-
mitted Jews and each would like
to make an endowment gift to the
Foundation for the benefit of his
Federation. Although their
financial circumstances and the
size of their estate differ, they
each have a common asset which
I can be the basis of an endowment
I g'ft-
Question: How can Sam and
I Ben make a present gift to the
Foundation while leaving their
current assets intact and not put-
\ting their family in a financial
\ bind at the time of their death?
Answer: The vahw of life in-
surance as a means of charitable
giving is often overlooked. Life
insurance is initially purchased
for many reasons. Some purchase
lit purely as a means of protection
[for the family while children are
young. Others purchase it as a
I means of forced saving, since life
I insurance, other than pure term
insurance, builds cash value
which may be used in time of
cash need. Still others purchase it
[as a vehicle for funding various
business obligations, such as a
Ibuy sell agreement between busi-
ness partners. Many business-
[entities provide group term in-
| surance to their key executives as
part of a non-taxable income
| benefit.
Regardless of the purpose for
its initial purchase, there may
; come a time when retaining all of
I ones life insurance is unnecsesary
and unfeasible from an estate and
tax planning point of view. In the
above hypothetical situation
Sam, Ben and the Foundation
would benefit by Sam and Ben
making an endowment gift of a
portion of their life insurance.
In Sam's situation there is no
longer the need for substantial
amounts of insurance. Over the
years he has built an estate con-
sisting of a modest portfolio of
securities, a home with substan-
tial equity and other cash invest-
ments. Certainly, Sam may have
a need to retain a portion of his
insurance to augment his estate
and provide a means of support
to his widow, if he should prede-
cease her. If sam chooses to make
an endowment gift by using some
of his life insurance, he has two
options, either of which, depend-
ing on his estate plan objective
and current income tax deduction
needs, would be feasible.
Assuming Sam has a policy
with cash value, he could make
an outright gift of the policy to
the Foundation, naming the
Foundation both as owner and
beneficiary of the policy and
giving up all rights that he may
have in the policy. This will yield
an immediate charitable income
tax deduction for Sam for the re-
placement value of the policy
(assuming it is a paid up policy.)
If premiums remain to be paid on
the policy, the charitable
deduction is equal to the inter-
polated terminal reserve value of
the policy (an amount slightly in
excess of cash surrender value on
the date the policy is given).
In the event that premiums
remain to be paid on the policy,
Sam's annual premium payment
would also qualify for an annual
charitable income tax deduction.
Making a gift in this fashion
achieves two tax objectives an
immediate income tax deduction
and a reduction in the adjusted
gross estate.
Sam's other choice is not to
give up total control of the policy,
but merely name the Foundation
as beneficiary. This does not
yield an income tax Charitable
deduction, but it may result in
significant estate tax savings.
Using this method of making a
life insurance charitable gift the
value of the policy is included in
Sam's estate, but it is offset by a
charitable estate tax deduction.
At first blush there appears to
be nothing more than a wash,
however, the inclusion of the
Klanwatch
Intelligence Report
The Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County supports Klan-
watch and receives information
monitoring the Klans activities.
Here are a few selected items of
Klan-Nazi incidents from around
[ the country.
WASHINGTON. DC. June
11, The Pentagon is investigating
charges by a German news
I magazine. Stern, that a U.S. Air
Force staff sergeant has been re-
Uruiting Nazis to the KKK. The
magazine reported that Sgt.
Murray Melvin Kachel admitted
recruiting Germans to open up "a
**ond front'" for the Klan in
I Europe.
Stern said Kachel told an in-
vestigative reporter, "Not only
the nigger, but the Jew is our
enemy. We are facing a new race
, war and have to be prepared for
it. The white race must return to
its old greatness You Germans
have a long racially conscious
tradition. Even the Americans
can learn something from it"
Air Force spokesmen reported-
V said that as long as the
sergeant conducted his Klan ac-
tivities off base and out of uni-
form the Air Force could do
nothing about it.
NASHVILLE, TENN. June
18, Six persons have been in-
dicted by a federal grand jury in
an alleged attempt by a KKK
group to bomb Jewish-owned
businesses, a synagogue and a
television station transmitting
tower in late May. Indicted were
William C. Foutch, 48: Gladys
Girgenti, 50: James E. Nellums,
3? David B. Garrett, 31; Bobby
Joe Norton, 32, and Charles C.
Boyer, 26. Except for Garrett,
who is from Laceys Springs, Ala.,
all the defendants are from the
Nashville area.
They have been charged with
conspiracy, illegally transporting
explosives and stolen dynamite
in the bombing attempt. Federal
agents testified that the five
Nashville defendants were
members of a splinter Klan group
known as the Confederate
Vigilante Knights. Each defend-
ant faces a maximum fine of
$50,000 and a 45-year prison sen-
tence if convicted.
value of the policy in Sam's
estate will swell the value of the
adjusted gross estate and will
therefore increase the amount of
the estate that passes tax free to
Sam's surviving spouse, i.e., the
marital deduction wherein the
decedent may pass tax free to the
surviving spouse the greater of
$250,000, or one-half of the ad-
justed gross estate.
Ben's situation is somewhat
different from Sam's. Ben is still
in the process of building his
estate and he has a young family.
However, in the hypothetical
example, it was indicated that
Ben's employer, as part of the
compensation package, is provid-
ing Ben with $75,000 of group
term life insurance.
The IRS has ruled that an em-
ployer may provide group term
life insurance of up to $50,000
without any income tax conse-
quences to the employee. The
premium payments are tax de-
ductible to the employer and non-
taxable to the employee. How-
ever, to the extent that an em-
ployer provides group term life
insurance in excess of $50,0ffcto
the employee, the employee must
recognize taxable income
measured by the premium cost of
the excess coverage.
However, to all rules there are
exceptions. If the employee
names a Charity as beneficiary of
the excess portion (the amount
over $50,000), the premium cost
of said excess is not taxable as
additional income to the em-
ployee. Ben could name the
Foundation as beneficiary of the
additional $25,000. Although he
does not get a charitable income
tax deduction, he does achieve
his objective of making a gift to
the Foundation at no cost to him-
self. Assuming he can spare this
amount of protection and still
adequately provide for his
family's future in the event of an
untimely death, he like his
Father, can use life insurance to
achieve his Philanthropic objec-
tives.
Life insurance can provide an
inexpensive means of not only in-
suring the value of yourself for
the benefit of your family, but of
insuring that the quality of
Jewish life will be maintained and
enhanced for years to come.
As with any charitable gift,
you should consult your attor-
ney, accountant or other tax
advisor before implementing
your decision. The Federation's
Endowment Consultant is at
your disposal for a confidential
conversation with you and-or
your legal and tax advisors and
insurance agent to discuss an en-

ance.

Isadore Zitlin
Celebrates 90th Birthday
The strength of the Jewish
community in Pinellas County
owes much of its success to the
dedication and hard work of a few
individuals. Isadore Zitlin, who
recently celebrated his 90th
birthday at a party at the Golda
Meir Center, is one of the pio-
neers who laid the foundations
upon which our Jewish com-
munity is built.
Mr. Zitlin has been a resident
of Clearwater since 1939, when he
retired from his business, the In-
dependent Automotive Radiator
Co. and moved here from
Chicago. From the beginning, he
involved himself in the Jewish
community. Mr. Zitlin was one of
the founders of Temple B'nai Is-
rael, and was one of the tra-
ditional Jews who recognized the
need for a conservative shul. and
who worked to establish Con-
gregation Beth Shalom, in Clear-
water. Mr. Zitlin had always felt
a love for Jewish liturgical music,
and took special courses in the
art of interpreting Jewish melo-
dies. He completed courses and
eurned a coveted cantorial certifi-
cate. Mr. Zitlin then served as
Cantor at Beth Shalom, a post he
lii-ld for 10 years. Wtih Cantor
/.illin's soul stirring chants and
In.-.- rich spirit of Judaism, Beth
Sliulom was able to sustain
meaningful religious services
even without the services of a
rabbi.
Mr. Zitlin s activities in Beth
Shalom were not limited to those
of the Religious Committee,
chuirman of the Membership
committee, and member of the
Building Committee. Beth
Shalom was honored to have him
serve as its Second congre-
gational president. Clara Zitlin,
l.sudwre's wife, was equally
devoted to the shul. It was said
that Clara provided the food for
the body, while Isadore provided
the food for the soul.
Congregation Beth Shalom
was not the only beneficiary of
Mr. Zitlins dedication. He was
one of the early leaders of the
United Jewish Appeal campaign
in Pinellas County, and served as
a member of the Jewish Welfare
Board. He was one of the
founders of B'nai B'rith here, and
was the Chaplain of his Masonic
group, Hi-Twelve. Mr. Zitlin has
been honored by Congregation
Isadore Zitlin
Beth Shalom on numerous oc-
casions in recognition of the
inestimable contribtutions he
made to the shul. He has also
been recognized by various civic
and fraternal organizations for
his service to them.
Mr. Zitlin has four children,
four grandchildren and two great
grandchildren. He still remains
active in the Jewish community
he helped to build. He is a regular
participant in the Dining
Program at the Golda Meir Cen-
ter on Jupiter St. and par-
ticipates in many of the programs
und classes offered at the center.
We wish him continued good
health and our gratitude for all
that he contributed toward the
establishment of viable, succesful
Jewish community.

The Half-Truth Respoken
One fact is dear: The half-truth of the Palestinians be-
witches the western nations more and more so that they
do not understand the reality of PLO and Middle East
maneuvering.
What the west sees are Israeli planes that bombed Bei-
rut twice last weekend and into Monday. It sees civilian
casualties and is outraged although there never does
appear to be an equivalent brand of outrage voiced in the
west or, indeed anywhere else, when it is Israeli civilians
who are the casualties of the unrelenting Palestinian war
against the Jewish State.
What the west does not see is the PLO's deliberate
decision to set up its headquarters and many of its ancil
lary military operations smack in the middle of Lebanon';
most crowded civilian population centers and to seek
immunity from attack there by a revolting kind of camou-
flage.
In this sense, the west shows no concern that Yasir
Arafat is conducting his campaign against the existence of
Israel from the very same centers he declares he is pro-
tecting, but about which he has no real concern at all.
In all of this, the repeated Arab propensity for calling
Israel the new source of Nazi practice and Prime Minister
Begin a Hitler is unspeakable. The history of the Arab
world's alliances with Hitler during the Nazi era sets the
lie to their unrelenting reconstruction of the past. To what
extent does the west fall for this? We would bet fairly ex
tensively.
Having made these observations, we are pressed to
emphasize that the Israeli attacks on Beirut, while under
standable from a military point of view, are less under
standable otherwise. No doubt. Prime Minister Begin be-
:j:j lieves with profound conviction that knocking out the
1 ,PLO centers is as important to Israel's survival as
| knocking out the Iraqi Osirak reactor was outside of
g Baghdad.
1 O,tne other hand' suca reservoir of goodwill that'
| Israel had prior to that June 7 operation is long since
spent. There wasn't much of it to begin with either, and so
the raids on Beirut should have been weighed against that
perilously diminishing reserve.
5J* especially true in light of the election results on
June 30, which Begin can in no way interpret as a mandate
to rule his country another four years. The stinging critic-
ism of the Beirut bombings already voiced in several
major Israeli newspapers suggests that there is hardly a
unanimous feeling about them.
Met with divided opinion at home and with the kind of I
reaction abroad that brought a halt to the delivery of 10 \
American-built F-16's last Friday, can the Begin decision
to continue with the campaign in the name of self-defense
be justified at this time?

What seems like a m ild Reagan Administration reaction

Israel as scheduled last Friday, noted that this did not!

In fact, it was Edwin Meeee, the White House counsel-
or, who more than mildly observed that sending the planes
off as scheduled would only make things worse at this
p time, and so the shipment would have to wait some more.

For many years my husband and I
thought about traveling to the Holy
Land. Although we were versed in the
history of this land, our greatest ex-
pectations were exceeded by what we
experienced.
Gene and I departed from Miami and
arrived in Israel on Saturday evening
May 23, 1981. Ascending the Judean
mountains to Jerusalem, the "eternal
city" and the home of our three great
religions, is a truly emotional experience.
While walking the dirt roads of this
walled ancient city, we immediately
comprehended why this city is so holy
to all our major religionsand why
Jerusalem has been the site of some of
history's greatest conflicts. We
recognized that this was not going to
be another tourthis would be a
unique experience.

Presented is a pictorial overview of a recent
visit by Senator Paula Hawkins to the
modern state of Israel the birthplace of
the two major religions of the Western world.
Senator Hawkins and her husband Gene had
the opportunity to visit Israel and to see the
miracle of a modern state born out of barren
rock and desert sand a country whose
technological advances are among the most
sophisticated in the world, whose unique ed-
ucational system integrates both Eastern
and Western cultureo, and whose military
capabilities form a vital link in America's
global geopolitical strategy.
We appreciate and thank Senator Hawkins
and her husband Gene for sharing this excit-
ing experience with us.

Our first visit was to Yad Vaahem. the memorial
to the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust
This holy place serves as a constant reminder to
the world of the horrors of Nazism and the
genocide committed against the European Jews.
This must never happen again. We walked
through the museum which pictorially shows the
rise of Nazism and the cruelties that were inflicted
on a people only because they were Jews. We
viewed the impressive monuments to the heroes
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and then partici-
pated in a ceremony commemorating the death of
the Six Million
Next we went to Bethlehem, where we visited the
Church of the Nativity the holy place where
Jesus was born. While here, we witnessed a
confirmation ceremony and then chatted with the
parents, whose family had lived near Bethlehem
for hundreds of years. Our next stop was to visit
the Mormon garden on the Mount of Olives. Here
we saw the site where the Mormon missionary
Orson Hyde dedicated the land to the Jews; pro-
claimed, in 1841. the rebirth of the State of Israel;
and beckoned Jews to return from all over the
world to restore this historic land and form a
modern state. This was particularly meaningful
since Gene and I are Mormons.
After lunch we met with Jerusalem's legendary
mayor Teddy Kollek. I asked Mayor Kollek why,
in Jerusalem, where there are so many potentially
H
<*
hostile groups living side by side, there is no
visible street crime. He responded that the in-
tegrity of the neighborhood and the importance of
the family unit are two values held deeply by all
groups. It is these values that prevent crime.
What a great lesson for us in the United States
who are plagued with an increasing crime rate!
At 4:00 we met with David Ephrati in the Minis-
try of Foreign Affairs; he handles relations with
all the churches. He explained the ongoing
dialogue with representatives of the Roman
Catholic. Greek Orthodox, and Moslem religions
regarding the importance of preserving the
unique status of the religious shrines throughout
the State of Israel. I was most impressed with
safeguards that allow each religion to function
freely, without any government interference,
while allowing each to respect the rights of others.
We met with Yitzhak Shamir, the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, who gave us a much greater
comprehension of the fragility of the existing
"peace" in the Middle East.
Mr. Shamir warned against allowing sophisti-
cated arms to fall into the hands of potentially
hostile or unstable neighbors. This would endan-
ger not only the security of Israel, but would also
compromise America's military technology and
jeopardize the safety of American pilots and sol-
diers. He showed us the geographic proximity of
Saudi Arabia and Israel and emphasized that
those lethal weapons would have no other even-
tual use but against Israel. Mr. Shamir's words
were sobering. He reminded us not only of the
most recent declaration of the Saudi leaders, de-
claring a Holy War against Israel, but also of the
Saudi s participation in at least three previous
wars against Israel.
That evening, we met with the current leader of
the Labor Party, Shimon Peres. He stated that,
even though there are great differences between
Mr. Begin and himself, they share a common
ground concerning defense and adherence to the
belief that Israel and the United States share a
common position.
Monday. May 25,1961
We began the day by meeting with Prime Minis-
ter Menachem Begin. I was impressed by his keen
insight into Israel's relations with her Arab
neighbors, his sincere desire for peace and his rec-
ognition of the Soviets as the most serious threat
to peace and stability in the Middle East and Per-
sian Guff regions. He emphasized the disaster
that would result if sophisticated American
weapons were sold to unstable Arab states who
neither participate in the peace process nor sup-
port American foreign policy.
Later in the morning, we met with Mrs. Tamar
Eshel. a member of the Knesset (the Israeli Par-
liament). She noted that Israel is the only demo-
cratic state in the Middle East. She, duly
elected member of the Knesset, serves with other
duly elected members including other women.
Arabs, Bedouins and Druze members. We dis-
cussed the sociological problems caused by the
large number of Jewish refugees absorbed from
Arab countries refugees who. when they enter
Israel, for the first time enter the twentieth
century refugees with large families and many
young children who have to be educated and
integrated into a modern western society.
Gene and I spent the rest of the morning at the
"new" Hadassah Hospital, a modern, world-
renowned medical center. Some of the major ad-
vances in medicine have been developed by
members of the staff of this hospital which treat
Jew and Arab alike. One of the doctors explained
to me that, before 1947, Arabs from all over the
Middle East came to Hadassah for advanced
medical treatment; and, even now, non-Jerusalem
Moslem and Arabs come there for treatment of
their most serious medical problems. With peace
in the Middle East, this most certainly would be
the regional medical center improving health care
for all.
Norman Braman, a friend from Miami who ac-
companied us during our entire visit to Israel,
took us to the original Hadassah Hospital built
in the 1940s on Mount Scopus. This hospital was
surrounded by the Jordanians in 1948 and could
not be used as a medical facility until 1967. A new
hospital duplicating the one on Mount Scopus
was built in Jerusalem in the early 1960's.

Gene and I felt that thia was a terrible waste of
physical property.
Norman Braman then told us the story of a
clearly marked unarmed medical convoy contain-
ing 105 professors, doctors, nurses and patients
Which left for Mt. Scopus under British and Jor-
danian protection and guarantees for safety. En
route, it was attacked by Arab soldiers 76 were
slaughtered while the "protectors" did nothing.
Although this event happened in 1948, I can un-
derstand Israel's attitude that it must protect
itself guarantees cannot be relied on.
After lunch at the hospital and meeting with the
medical staff, we visited Jerusalem's religious
shrines, now accessible to all in a unified city. Je-
rusalem is a holy city of the western world's three
major religions Judaism, Christianity and
Islam. I was inspired to stand at the Western
Wall, to walk the Stations of the Cross, and to
view the Al-Aqsa i Mosque holy sites dear to so
many people and now accessible to all religions.
Tuesday, May 26,1981
We left for the north via the Jordan Valley where
we stopped at Kibbutz Gilgal, located three miles
from the Jordanian border, composed of approxi-
mately eighty members, both Christian and Jew,
from all parts of the world. This kibbutz has a
very large number of children. The older children
expressed their concerns about security and their
fear of this territory's being returned to the Arabs
-which would mean that they would have to
leave their home. They reminded Gene and me
that Jews were not allowed to live in occupied Je-
rusalem or the West Bank while it was illegally oc-
cupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967. The younger
children showed me the bomb shelters in which
they sleep every night of their Uves. We inspected
the vineyards and were amazed to see barren rock
turned into fertile soil and grapes growing on
this soil. This ability of these pioneers to make
productive use of the land is a major reason for
the success of the State of Israel.
We continued our journey to Lake Tiberias, the
Sea of Galilee, where Christ's ministry began and
where he performed many of his miracles. The
historical significance of this area is as important
as its present day significance. Now a heavily
fished sea surrounded by flourishing agricultural
communities, it supplies 80 percent of Israel's
fresh water. Prior to 1967, the Syrians and their
heavy artillery constantly bombarded the sea and
the communities surrounding it, making
everyday farming and fishing a life or death
experience. The serenity that now exists must be
such u sharp contrast to those times of peril.
We then ascended the Golan Heights to visit Kib-
butz Kfar Haruv. Of the 110 member population,
one-third are American and most of these are
American military veterans. Lenny Spector, who
conducted our tour, is from Bayonne, New Jersey.
He impressed upon us the importance of the Is-
raeli presence in the Golan Heights to protect the
heartlands of Israel. He reminded us that, during
the 1973 Yom Kippur War.the Syrians would
have overrun and destroyed Israel had it not been
for the Israeli chain of settlements in the Golan
Heights. As he was talking, I gazed from the
barren rock-strewn countryside to the kibbutzs
1,000 acres of land under cultivation and shared
the pride these people feel. From these heights, I
could see how easily the Syrians could shell the
region from which we had just come the vul-
nerable farms around the Sea of Galilee. I fully
understood the peril to Israel and her need to re-
tain these lands and settlements which serve as
her first line of defense against a repeat of Syrian
attack.

We arose early in the morning and again drove
north towards the Lebanese border stopping at
Metulla to visit a gateway in the Good Fence
- a unique international boundary between
Israel and Lebanon where the beleaguered
Lebanese-Christians are able to enter Israel for
social and medical aid. It is a site where one can
v1 what is left of the once beaurifui country of
Lebanon now war-torn, 0WMpi*ffi|feg*jB
terrorized by the PLO. I was shocked to learn of
the genocide being practiced by'Modems against
Christiana and to learn that, with the excep-
tion of Israel, the world silently watches^ domg
nothing. Israel is the only country actively op-
posing the genocide of this once vibrant
LAarTese-Chrisrian community. The Arebchum
that Jew and Moslem can live together in peace m
a secular state of Palestine is put to the tost ui
Lebanon. It fails that test Israel s aidmg the
Lebanese-Christiana to survive is proof of Israel s
intentions. _
On this up-beat note, we left the, "Good Fence
and drovTto the holy Jewish Jfr 9**J*
quaint town where scholars hgwmfafejg

was in Sfad that I met Sara Zefira, the^head orthe
Isroel Red Magen David, an organuaUon wrth
much meaning for mc> since I serve as itsun
aanixation. I resolved at that time '""'
SeTmore strongly my fight to force the Intoma
tional Red Cross to recognize the Red Star
David as an official symbol just as it does the Red
Cross, the Iranian Red Lion and Sun, and the
Moslem Red Crescent to include the Red
Magen David Adom as a member of the interna-
tional organization of mercy and to allow
official affiliation of the American and Israeli
sister organizations.
We returned to Tel Aviv and had a most enjoy-
able dinner with Mordecai Zippori, the Deputy
Minister of Defense and his lovely wife Tova. I
had looked forward to meeting this couple who
are cousins of good friends of mine in South Flor-
ida, Stan and Karen Margulies. We had a
fascinating interchange of ideas regarding Amer-
ica's and Israel's strategic and military needs.
Zippori expressed to me in the strongest military
V
inn imrinnxrrionn ptfn tw
i
terms how threatening the sale of sophisticated i
weaponry such as the enhanced F-15 s and
AWACS would be to the security of Israel. He
then added a much more startling thought how
could we Americans allow our most a*6"*
military technology to be given a regime already
unstable? There was very little question in his
mind that the secrets of our AWACS and F-15 s
would soon fall into Russian hands if given to the
Saudis, just as our F-14 airplane technology and
our Harpoon and Lance missile secrets had fallen
into Russian hands soon after being given to
Iran; and that President Carter planned to deliver
AWACS to Iran just before the fall of the Shah
AWACS that would now be in the hands of Aya-
tollah Khomeni and the Russians. He reminded
me that many of the same people who testified
before the Senate that this could never happen in
Iran were now, coming forth with similar
testimony about' Saudi Arabia. I restated my
active opposition to such a sale. We must learn
from our mistakes, not repeat them.
Thursday, May 28,1981
Early the next morning, we arrived in Beersheva,
the capital of the Negev. In the early 60's, Beer-
sheva was nothing more than a Bedouin trading
post; it is now the fourth largest city in Israel. I
was able to see again how barren and arid desert
had been transformed into productive, agricultur-
al soil. If what has been done here could be done
in other parts of the world, what benefits would
derive to underdeveloped nations, especially in
alleviating world hunger.
While in Beersheva, we visited the Ben Gurion
University, the youngest and among the most in-
novative of Israel's universities. Ben Gurion U.
concentrates its efforts in several areas. Most
interesting to me were agriculture, irrigation and
health care. The medical school provides com-
plete modem medical care to the large Bedouin
community of the Negev, a community which
prior to 1970 received almost none. In discussion
with students and faculty, I learned another im-
portant facet of Israeli life everyone who serves
on the faculty teaches and everyone who teaches
serves. The social and economic implications of
this to me were staggering. This means that each
Israeli citizen, male and female, after completing
mandatory military service, spends an average
one month a year on active military duty.
Gene and I examined other divisions of the Uni-
versity where applied research for specific prob;
lems is being performed. As a member of the
Senate Committee on Agriculture and as senator
from Florida, where agriculture is a major in-
dustry, the projects that centered on special uses
and conservation of water, new agricultural ap-
proaches and the unorthodox use of presently
grown crops were of special interest to me. We
visited four desert settlements where brackish
water, never before used in agriculture, is now
being used to grow cotton, corn and wheat. I dis-
cussed the possible applications of this method of
agriculture for use in Florida. It seems to me that,
if brackish warm water could be used in our state,
we might be able to avoid the problems of un-
timely freezes and resulting crop loss. I have
asked Dr. Pasternak to provide additional in-
formation and to testify before the Senate Com-
mittee on Agriculture on these innovative
techniques.
I was excited to meet with Dr. Mizrachi, who ex-
plained how his genetic research on tomatoes has
produced a commercially acceptable product with
a six week shelf life. I asked if this could be
feasibly done in Florida where tomato farming is
an important part of our agriculture industry. He
thought that his research could be useful in Flor-
ida and agreed to testify before the Senate on this
subject. I feel that, with the possible benefits to
residents and farmers in Florida, this is well
worth looking into, because of Florida's water
problems, especially shortages, I was extremely
interested in the Israeli system of drip irrigation
presently being used in the Negev to grow fruits
and vegetables. Their moisturized hot houses
I allow for the inexpensive growth of large varieties
1 with very little usage of water and with extremely
I high yield per acre. This is another area having
important implications for Florida and will be
carefully followed.
(Of interest for Florida also were projects of de-
salinization, the use of salt water for commercial
growth of ornamental plants, and techniques for
energy production from solar resources. I was
amazed to learn that there were joint projects be-
tween Ben Gurion University and Egyptian
academic centers that are already benefitting the
populations of North Africa. One of these in-
volves research on animal health care at the Isan
Center for Comparative Medicine, the veterinary
center at the university, dedicated by Floridians,
Barbara and Jerry Isan. Before leaving the Uni-
versity, I had lunch with President Shlomo Gazit,
the former head of Israeli intelligence and Vice
President Israel Ben Amitai, former chief of Is-
raeli artillery. We discussed the strategic impor-
tance ot the Negev and the Sinai They explained
to me the strategic and economic sacrifice Israel
had made by returning to Egypt the Sinai with its
important military bases and its large oil supply
at a cost to Israel of over eight billion dollars!
They felt that Prime Minister Begin was offering
everything possible for the sake of peace. I sugr
gested that the military bases iff the Sinai, the

A1 if f i ii 11 Perspective
Or flie Im h Ii Attack
It seems to me that there is a terrible sense of
unreality about the outcry over Israel's
attack on the Iraqi nuclear facility at Tuwa-
itha. Rarely does a commentator mention the
explicit threat made by Saddam Hussein, the
President of Iraq, to use weapons supplied
by this reactor against Israel. Rarely does
anyone mention the destabilizing effect a
nuclear weapon would have in the hands of
Hussein, or any of a number of other Mideast
potentates.
Looked at realistically, the Israeli attack has
to be seen as stabilizing not upsetting. It is
ironic that those who call for having all
nuclear weapons destroyed should object to
the destruction of this nuclear device,
potentially in the possession of someone
engaged in a holy war of elimination against
the people of Israel.
But, of course, Mr. President, the Israeli
attack is not viewed realistically. It is viewed
through the prism of the United Nations, an
organization which sometimes appears de-
dicated to clouding the real world in a fog of
rhetorical confusion. The United Nations is,
to put it mildly, irresponsible. It has no real
constituency, no economic base, no founding
in the real world. It is largely a paper organi-
zation, and so it can engage in a paper battle.
Nations such as Israel can pay some at-
tention to the U.N. so long as it does not
threaten Israel's real interests. The United
States is the same way. The only difference
seems to me to be that Israel has a clearer
sense of its own interests than the United
States has demonstrated in recent years."

the United States. No other nation in the

I again restate my commitment to preserve
Israel's security by providing her with the
means to shape her own future. I again
restate my opposition to the sale of sophisti-
cated offensive weapons not only to Saudi
Arabia, but to any nation in the Middle East
that treatens the security of the State of
Israel. Israel is a strategic ally of the United
States; therefore, any effort to harm her
hurts the interests of the United States in

Saudi Arabia lowers its heated anti-Israel

On our return to Tel Aviv, we visited one of the
many ORT centers in Israel, heavily supported bv
many friends in Florida. These centers help r^L
pie to help themselves by education and training
which make them productive and self-respecting
members of society. ORT has a well-respected
system of education including technical and voca-
tional high schools, technical colleges, appren-
ticeship centers and factory schools where revolu-
tionary techniques have created one of the most
successful programs in Israel.
Our final evening in Israel, we enjoyed a magnifi-
cent concert conducted by Leonard Bernstein at
the Mann Auditorium. As we listened to the
beautiful music of the Israeli Philharmonic we
were struck with the stark realization that this
concert was dedicated to a young, internationally
renowned flutist whose career was interrupted to
fight in the Yom Kippur War. His death was the
result. I was moved by the spirit of the Israelis, as
represented by this young hero, who even at time
of greatest peril, have never failed to remember
the importance of the quality of life and cultural
enrichment.
Gene and I were thrilled by all that the journey's
agenda had meant to us and through us, to the
citizens of Florida. We had the experience of a
lifetime on this trip to Israel and were ready to
return home filled with information and emotion
to share with our friends. We would urge all our
fellow Floridians to experience first hand a visit
to Israel.

Young and Old in Same Boat
ASSESSMENTS are correct
that the current spate of violence
in western nations is largely
youth-centered. It takes no
sophisticated observation to note
that the burning, the looting, the
attacks on police are being
carried out by gangs of young
people, not by their parents or
grandparents.
But the conclusions are in
correct that young people are
acting this way to show their dis-
affection, their alienation from a
social order that does not help
them with their needs or even pay
attention to their complaints,
their statements of dissent
against the established order.
THE FACT is that older peo-

bunglers to be tolerated at best
and made fun of or even mugged
at worst. They are the enemy who
do not "understand" youth
which is, after all, easy to under-
stand. Youth is beauty, and
beauty is truth.
NOR ARE Madison Avenue
and their equivalents elsewhere
in the west entirely to blame. The
roots of this cancer began with
tlie permissiveness of post-World
War 11 and the phony Freudian-
ism of the doctrine of equality
between children and their
parents. And it later extended
into the schools, with the equally
phony Deweyism of the dqctrine
of equality between students and
their touchers.
These doctrines were, and still
arc, rooted in the notion that the
old dictums defining the status
ad the privileges characteristic
of the generations are outmoted
excuses to repress the energies of
the young and that the re-
pressions they suffer in the name
of these dictums are deliberately
designed to rob them of their
youth, leaving them frustrated
and neurotic later in their lives as
adults, leaving them prisoners of
a bourgeois social order that
beats them into passive sub-
missiveness at the hands of cor-
porate slavery rather than to
freedom and personal self-ex-
prcsbion.
Worst of all, the old dictums
defining the status and the pri-
vileges of the generations is un-
democratic. Or so the reasoning
of these corruptions of the
philosophies of two important
20th Century thinkers goes.
There is no doubt that the
post-World War II period saw a
lot of genuine youthful rebellion,
rebellion rooted in political and
social unrest, notably among the
French under the leadership of
Henri Cohn-Bendit and among
the Germans under Red Rudi
Dulschke. Hardly did this re-
lu-lliousness die down in Europe,
when it reappeared in America
during the Vietnam era. only to
Ik.- murdered on the campus of
Kent State.
BUT LARGELY, the legacy of
thul era has since focused on a lot
of myths about the young. And
about the old. The young have
gone about the business of en-
trenching themselves in a culture
of hedonistic nihilism best ex-
emplified by a beer company
commercial's rationale that "you

only go around once" and a soft
drink's film footage exhorting the
cadaverous corps of Vic Tanny-
ism to join the vanguard elite of
the "PepsiGeneration."
What thislhad done is to leave
the young with no intellectual re-
sources to change course mid-
stream when the hedonism and
the nihilism lose their compelling
attractiveness when it be-
comes their turn to be incar-
cerated in a concentration camp
because they have now reached
the talisman age of 25 and must
be exterminated. When the
weight of years kicks them out of
the "Pepsi Generation," and the
doors of the nearest siimnastics
emporium slam in their faces.
As for the old, they have
contented themselves to wring
their hands before this messianic
mythology of the young and to be
victimized by it. Or else, to
preach and warn of coming social
Armageddons that the new
mythology will surely bring.
THERE IS perhaps no point
now in observing that the young
plunderers of Britain are not
really protesting their economic
plight of political and social
alienation from the mainstream.
What is more important is to
recognize that their plunder is yet
another form of hedonism and
nihilism essentially no different
from our own sense of helpless-
ness in the face of vast global
forces that are depressing our
lives and over which we have no
more control than the young.
In lashing out at their elders,
the young may think that they
are attacking the source of their
despair. But that self-deception
comes simply from the fact that
their hedonism has helped make
them so poorly-educated.
IF THEY can not understand
that young and old these days are
in the same boat, we must not
contribute to their 'further folly
by ill-conceived conclusions that
their violence is pre-revo-
lutionary. It is not; it is mere
tantrum.
If their elders are not violent
also in response to these very
same pressures, it is simply the
wisdom of age that tells them it is
useless. Besides, the ultimate
beauty of age is contemplation,
which abhors violence. The ul-
timate beauty of youth is phy-
sical beauty itself, which is
transitory and leads to a sense of
having been betrayed once it is
gone. And to a need for
vengeance against the estab-
lished order that assured them in
the first place that it would never
be gone.
None of either of these condi-
tions, not youth nor age, has a
blessed thing to do with the
social condition, but only with
the human condition. That we
think in terms of the social con-
dition against which all of us
rebel rather than the human con-
dition which only few of us ever
come to understand is the
greatest myth ot all about young
and old alike.
In the end, it is also the most
destructive. As, for example, in
Britain.

In a telegram to Israeli leaders,

"Do we wish to export this

He concluded by statin*
"Once and for all, let the Knesset

Reagan Sends Congress
N-Agreement With Egypt,
'Other Interests'
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Reagan has sent to
Congress the nuclear agreement
with Egypt which, he said, will
"further the non-proliferation
and other foreign policy interests
of the United States."
The agreement, signed at the
State Department on June 29,
could provide Egypt with up to
two nuclear reactors for energy
production purposes. Congress
has 60 days in which to accept or
reject the accord.
"The proposed bilateral agree-
ment reflects the desire of the
governments of the U.S. and
Egypt to establish a framework
for peaceful nuclear cooperation
in a manner which will recognize
our shared non-proliferation ob-
jectives, the economic and energy
development needs of Egypt and
the friendly and harmonious rela-
tions between the U.S. and
Egypt," Reagan said in his mes-
sage accompanying the nuclear
cooperation agreement.
THE PRESIDENT noted that
Egypt ratified the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty last
February. "This is an important
step toward controlling the
dangers of the spread of nuclear
weapons," Reagan said, "and is a
reaffirmation of Egypt's long
standing commitment to the ob-
jectives of this (non-proliferation)

Meanwhile, White House
Deputy Press Secretary Larry
Speakee had no comment on a
report in the Los Angeles Times
that the U.S. has been main-
taining secret contacts with the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization since the Nixon Ad-
ministration and up to the
present. He also had no comment
on reports of joint Soviet-Syrian
naval maneuvers off Syrian

That issue was raised by a
minister at Israel's Cabinet
meeting but was promptly
quashed by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin. Cabinet Sec-
retary Arye Naor explained later
that "This is not a matter for the
government of Israel."
URI PORAT, Begins press
spokesman, was quoted by Israel
Radio as saying that Israel
expects the U.S. to "react" to
such Soviet moves wherever they
are made, but especially in the
Middle East.
At the State Department,
spokesman Dean Fischer also re-
frained from commenting directly
on the Los Angeles Times report.
He merely repeated that the U.S.
will not hold talks with the PLO
until it recognizes Israel's right'
to exist and accepts United Na-

Dear Mrs. W.:
Anorexia nervosa is a pyschiatric disorder resulting in the
individual drastically reducing their food intake which, in ex-
treme cases, can lead to death if untreated. Striking mostly pre-
adolescent girls, the disorder wreaks havoc on both the family
and the individual. The disorder is on the rise among all youth in
the country, perhaps because of a national focus and much
?: attention in general regarding dieting and food intake.

Maccabiah Games End On Festive Note
By HASKELL COHEN
JERUSALEM 1JTA>
The 11th Maccabiah
Games were concluded here
last Thursday night when
the Maccabiah flame,
which was lit at the opening
ceremony July 6 at the
Ramat Gan stadium, was
extinguished at the foot of
Mount Zion Immediately
thereafter a banner con-
taining the words "If I
forget thee, O Jerusalem"
was hoisted on the hilltop.
The various teams, comprising
3.600 athletes from 35 countries
who competed in 31 sports in 58
locations throughout Israel, then
marched from Independence
Park through the center of the
city chanting and handing out
souvenirs and insignia pins to Is-
raeli youngsters who trailed
along
THE FESTIVE mood con-
tinued as more than 10.000 fans,
sitting in an outdoor amphi-
theater viewed a sound and light
show projected on the wails of the
Old City and were entertained by
the country's top singers,
dancers, choirs and bands. At the
closing ceremony where the
Maccabiah flame was ex-
tinguished. Prime Minister
Menachem Begin. Ramat Gan
Mayor Israel Peled and Jeru-
salem Mayor Teddy Kollek ad-
dressed the athletes and fans on
the need to make aliya to Israel.
At the end of the 10-day
Maccabiah. the largest since its
inception in 1932. Israel had the
most medals. 177. while the Unit-
ed States had 162 But the US.
was ahead with 73 gold medals to
Israel's 59. Israel was also ahead
with B4 medals to the OS.' 49.
and Israel topped the U.S.
bronze medals with 54-40.
Israel and the U.S.
followed by South Africa, with a
total of 36 medals; Canada, with

THE ACTUAL competition
during the last day was featured
by the overall team play of the
US. squad and South Africa. In
tennis at the Ramat Hasharon
courts, the Americans dominated
by taking 16 of the 20 gold
medals with Israel and South
Africa sharing the remaining four
medals between them. Only
Shloroo Gbckstetn. Israel's top
tennis player, prevented the U.S.
from making a clean sweep of
the court's play. He coasted to an
easy win over Brad Gilbert of
Piedmont. Calif 6-4. 6-3. in the

POLITICS ENTERED the
Games when the Mexicans A.
Walerstein and M. Fastlie re-
fused to take the court against E.
Saphire and J. Saks of South
Africa in the over 35-year final.
thereby forfeiting the match. The
Mexican tennis manager advised
Maccabiah court officials before
the start of the tournament that
none of his players would com-
pete against South African
players at the insistence of the
Mexican government which bans
sporting association with South
Africa in international officially
recognized events.
Earlier the Mexicans refused to
play a scheduled soccer match
with South Africa, forcing the
organizing committee to switch
the two teams to separate foot-
ball brackets. The enraged South
African hooters went on to heat
the United States in the football
finals 3-1 at Ramat Gan stadium.
For the Americans it was a moral
victory since the> had never
taken down a medal in soccer and
ecstatic with their sdver
runner-up team trophy.
The South Africans dominated
the final game after coming from
behind. The US. scored first in
the 10th minute of play on a goal
by Kenneth Abrams of Spring
Valley. NY. but lagged behind
the rest of the contest. Israel just
managed to come up with a
bronze medal by downing Great
Britain 5-4.
THE US. retained its basket
ball title won four years ago by
swamping Israel 91-71 at the Yad
Eliahu stadium The home club
went with its reserve in-
ternational squad and was no
match for the Americans. Dan
Schayes. of Syracuse University,
a National Basketball Asso-
ciation draft choice of Utah, was
outstanding with 28 points,
dominating the back boards and
hitting amazingly from the
outside.
Willie Sims, the Black Jew.
who was responsible for the 1977
gold medal, played a tremendous
floor game and came up with 16
points Sims hails from Long
Island. NY and will try out
with the Denver Nuggets of the
National Basketball Association.
If he fails in Colorado, he is all set
here with Maccabi Haifa.
American Captain David Blatt
of Princeton notched 17 points
while the ex-Syracuse II flash
dominated as team playmaker.
Blatt. likewise, is slated to play
here next season with Maccabi
Haifa.
At one point in the second half,
the Americans held the Israelis
scoreless for nine minutes, no
small feat %
AT CAESAREA, the US.
Golf team came up with a team
victory with 1.189 point to
runner-up Canada at 1.224. Horn-

Western Leaders Leaning
More Toward PLO Role
OTTAWA In a separate session of "Issues and
Answers," West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, in-
terviewed in Ottawa, said he believed the increased
violence in Lebanon "is proof of the necessity to broaden
the Camp David process." He said this applied to both
the issues and the participants.
Schmidt said that in order to achieve a com-
prehensive peace in the Middle East, the negotiations
cannot be left just to Israel and Egypt but should include
other Arab states, such as Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, as
well as the Palestinians. Schmidt refused to comment
when asked what affect a U.S. decision to resume delivery
of F- 16s to Israel would have on the situation.
BRITISH FOREIGN Secretary Lord Carrington
meanwhile said in a television interview that the Euro-
pean Economic Community's (EEC) Middle East ini-
tiative is baaed on the Arab recognition of Israel's right to
exist within secure borders and "in exactly equal
measure" Israel's recognition of Palestinian rights.
Appearing on NBC's "Today" program, Carrington
stressed that any peace initiative in the Mideast must in-
clude the Palestine Liberation Organization. The PLO
does represent the Palestinians," he asserted. "If you
look at who represents the Palestinian people and try to
find anybody but the PLO, you will be absolutely un-
successful. If you to go the West Bank, if you go any-
where, they are all people who belong to the PLO."
Contending the EEC peace initiative does not undermine
the U.S. peace efforts in the Mideast, Carrington claimed
that the European initiative was baaed on the rights of
both Israel and the Palestinians.
