Israel Foresees Arduous Negotiations
Shiite Militia Holds Israel Airman
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) One
of two Israel Air Force flyers
who bailed out of their Phan-
tom jet over south Lebanon on
Oct. 16 is being held by the
Shiite militia, Amal, and Israel
anticipates long and difficult
negotiations for his release.
This was indicated by Amal
leader Nabih Berri in Beirut
who confirmed that the Israeli
airman was in Amal's hands.
Israeli authorities earlier dis-
counted Amal claims that he
was their prisoner because
they offered no proof by way
of personal details or
photographs. Defense Minister,
Yitzhak Rabin said earlier that
there was no official confirma-
tion of who held the flyer.
BUT BERRI'S statement
was accepted here, and with
some degree of relief inasmuch
as Amal, the mainstream
Shiite military organization in
Lebanon, is moderate in con-
trast to the Iranian-inspired
Hezbullah and other extremist
Shiite groups. Berri is
Minister of Justice in the
Lebanese government.
The Israeli prisoner was the
Phantom's navigator. Its pilot,
who also bailed out, was
rescued by an Israel Air Force
helicopter. Israel claims the
plane crashed because of a
malfunction that caused bombs
in its undercarriage to ex-
plode. Reports from Lebanon
said it was shot down while
taking part in a bombing raid
on an El Fatah base east of
Tyre.
Berri did not say that Amal
will hold the Israeli to bargain
for the release of Amal or
other Shiites held prisoner by
Israel or by the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA).
But he hinted as much at a
Beirut press conference when
he referred to Shiites, in-
cluding young women, in the
Khiam detention camp run by
the SLA in south Lebanon.
BERRI WAS quoted as say-
ing that before negotiations
for the Israeli flyer could
begin, "Israel must first free
Lebanon."
Lebanon affairs experts here
said that while Berri is chiefly
interested in freeing Amal
prisoners held by Israel or the
SLA, his position as Justice
Minister would force him to
demand the release as well of
non-Amal members, including
Hezbullah and possibly even
Palestinians, to demonstrate
that he is active in the in-
terests of all Arabs.
Israeli officials observed that
Berri has now assumed
responsibility for the airman's
safety and well-being, and
Israel would hold him to it.
Messing to Chair
Jewish Community Campus
Capital Campaign Opens
Gilbert S. Messing, promi-
nent leader of the Jewish com-
munity of the Palm Beaches,
has accepted the chairmanship
of the Jewish Community
Campus Capital Campaign.
The Campus, to be located on a
site at Military Trail and 12th
Street, will house the Jewish
Community Center, the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County and the Jewish
Family and Children's Service.
In discussing the campaign
which will raise the funds and
administer the development of
the Campus, Mr. Messing said.
"A successful $12.5 million
campaign will allow us to
develop our Campus with the
Jewish Community Center as
its principal tenant. Its educa-
tional and recreational
facilities, which will be more
extensive than any in South
Florida, will become the focal
point for our entire community
and will allow us to greatly ex-
pand our communal services
that are desperately needed
for both our young and elderly.
"It has been the drear" of us
all to have a Campus including

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Arab terrorist attacks and ap-
parent reprisals by Jewish
militants raised tension in
Israel and the administered
territories during the Sukkoth
festival.
Three Jews were arrested
for allegedly assaulting two
Arab sanitation workers in Bat
Yam, south of Tel Aviv. One
was released after question-
ing. Another Arab street
cleaner was slightly wounded
by a knife attack in Ashdod,
and police are investigating to
determine if Jews were involv-
ed. They are also investigating
suspected arson at an Arab
school in Acre.
The Arab victims of attacks
are all residents of the Gaza
Strip where two Jews from

deeply regrets any misunderstanding relating to
the centerfold advertisement of Senator Paula Hawkins
in the issues of Friday, Oct. 24 and Friday, Oct. 31.
These are paid political advertisements and should not
be construed as an endorsement of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
which does not endorse any political candidate.
Ashkelon were fatally stabbed
in recent weeks. Anti-Arab
sentiments flared anew after
the grenade attack on Israeli
soldiers and their families in
the Old City Oct. 15 which kill-
ed one man and wounded 69
soldiers and civilians.
Leaflets hailing the grenade
attack and the downing of an
Israel Air Force Phantom jet
over south Lebanon were
distributed in several towns in
the West Bank. Border police
dispersed rock-throwing
students in Rafah in the
southern Gaza Strip. School
children burned tires and
blocked roads near Rafah.
Palestinian youths stoned
Israeli vehicles near Nablus.
Ultra-rightwing Jews who
call themselves the "Temple
Mount Faithful" visited the
Temple Mount in groups of
seven, under the watchful eyes
of police. It was the first time
in many years that Jewish
militants were allowed on the
Temple Mount, site of Islamic
shrines. They were not permit-

Brenner to Chair Demographic Study Committee
Stanley Brenner
Erwin H. Blonder, Presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County, has
named Stanley Brenner to
chair the Demographic Study
Committee. As chairman he
will oversee a major year-long
demographic study of the
Jewish community from Boyn-
ton Beach to Jupiter.
The study will identify the
nature and extent of the
greater Palm Beach Jewish
community including their
needs, practices and attitudes
and will address vital ques-
tions regarding the
Federation-UJA Campaign.
The information gathered will
be critical to the community's
future planning in order to
Weisel Celebrates
Simchat Torah In Russia
Nobel Peace Prize winner,
Elie Weisel, celebrated Sim-
chat Torah with Russian Jews
who gathered at the Moscow
synagogue to celebrate the
concluding of the reading of
the Torah. Meanwhile 5,000
Jews danced and sang on
Arkhipova Street, outside the
synagogue, as is traditional
every year.
Weisel lead the congregation
in several Hebrew songs which
caused him much personal joy.
Weisel seemed to cause a spon-
taneous outpouring of delight,
according to Valery Soyfer, a
professor of genetics. Other
visiting dignitaries are usually
greeted in a more formal man-
ner, he said.
Weisel had the opportunity
to speak to the worshippers
and said, in Yiddish, "Not a
day passes that I don't talk of
you, dream of you, sing of you
or pray for you. You give us
much hope ... We owe you a
thousand times more than you
owe us."
While police officers patroll-
ed the area, Weisel who had
been to the Soviet Union three
times previously but never on
Simchat Torah, told a
reporter, "If s probably the
most joyous holiday the Jewish
people have we have very
little to celebrate. But the out-
pouring of young people who
say they want to identify
themselves as Jews is
amazing."
Weisel, who is hoping to be
able to meet with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev, said he
came to Moscow to arrange for
Soviet participation in a
Washington conference set for
next year to commemorate the
non-Jewish victims of the
Holocaust. He also hopes to be
able to visit Andrei Sakharov,
who won the Nobel Peace
Prize in 1975, but Gorky,
where he is exiled, is off limits
to visitors.
Morse Geriatric Center
Establishes Morse
Home Health Agency

*
In an effort to meet the
public demand for affordable,
quality, health services
available in the home, the
Morse Geriatric Center has
established the Morse Home
Health Agency.
Licensed by the State of
Florida as a Medicare and
Medicaid certified, not-for-
grofit agency, the Morse
[ome Health Agency will pro-
vide a wide range of in-home
skilled and non-skilled clinical,
rehabilitative and homemaker
services.
The agency, which is slated
to open in late 1986 and will be
located at the Center, has been
established to meet the needs
of a population who:
A. requires an alternative to
a hospital stay, or short-term
nursing home admission.
B. can delay or eliminate the
need for long-term nursing
home admission.
. .C. following an early
hospital discharge, may re-
quire acute, intensive, skilled
treatments or highly technical
care and sophisticated medical
equipment.
The philosophy guiding the
Morse Home Health Agency is
that in-home care is a positive
alternative to nursing home
replacement or hospitalization
and an effective form of health
care. Home care represents
the best tradition in health
care. Studies have conclusively
proved that individuals cared
for in their own homes respond
better to treatment, and re-
quire less healing time. Home
care is personalized care
tailored to the needs of each in-
dividual, delivered on a one-to-
one basis.
Initially, the agency will be
under the direction of Scott
Boord, Assistant Director of
the Morse Geriatric Center,
with the day-to-day operations
being overseen by a
Registered Nurse Ad-
ministrator. Skilled nursing
services and Certified Nursing
Assistants will be offered
along with Homemaker Ser-
vices, Physical Therapy, Oc-
cupational Therapy, Speech
Therapy and Social Work Ser-
vices for those in need.
Inquiries about the Morse
Home Health Agency are
welcome. Contact Mr. Boord

ther information.
meet the demand for religious
and social services. The results
of the study will guide the
Jewish community in its deci-
sion making processes over the
next five to ten years.
According to Mr. Blonder,
Mr. Brenner was chosen for
this position because of his
long term involvement with
and commitment to the Jewish
community of the Palm
Beaches. "In addition, Stan is
a highly qualified professional
who will expertly administer
the study," stated Mr.
Blonder.
A past President of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, Mr. Brenner
has been prominently involved
in every aspect of Federation
from the time of its incorpora-
tion in 1962. He has been an
active member of the Endow-
ment Fund Committee since
its inception in 1980 and serv-
ed as its Chairman for the last
two years.

Board of Trustees of the

Endowment Committee
Eileen Nickman and Ruth K.
Berman have been named to
co-chair the Women's Division
Endowment Committee, an-
nounced Erwin H. Blonder,
President of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County. The committee
educates women about the En-
dowment Program, in general,
and, specifically, about their
role as donors as well as
solicitors of endowment gifts.
Mr. Blonder noted that Mrs.
Nickman had founded the com-
mittee last year. "Both Mrs.
Nickman, whose superb ef-
forts initiated this vital com-
mittee, and Mrs. Berman,
whose dedication and com-
munity involvement will help
insure the committee's success
this year, are committed to the
ideals of insuring that Jewish
institutions as we know them
to exist today in the Palm
Beaches and abroad, will con-
tinue to exist for generations
to come.
"In addition, through their
involvement they acknowledge
that the annual Federation-
UJA Campaign cannot sustain
all the growing needs that this
Jewish community is facing,
that emergencies will in-
evitably arise, and that pilot
programs will need to be
started and funded. Their ef-
forts, along with their commit-
tee which is in formation, will
serve to get other women in-
volved in their own right in
strengthening our Jewish com-
munity," stated Mr. Blonder.
Mrs. Nickman, who was ac-
tive in the Jewish community
of Cleveland before moving to
the Palm Beaches, has con-
tinued her involvement here.
She currently sits on the
Women's Division Board of
Directors, its Campaign
Cabinet, and has been active
on several of its committees.

Ambassador to Israel: Relationship AOK
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Thomas Pickering, the United
States Ambassador to Israel
declared recently that Israeli-
American relationships have
"never been better."
Addressing more than 500
people attending the annual
dinner of the American
Friends of Haifa University at
the Pierre Hotel here, the
American envoy said that
"despite some tough tests over
the past year, it's (American-
Israeli relations) as good as it
has ever been. Some tell me
it's better than it's ever been.
We have a thriving security
relationship, and we are part-
ners in strategic cooperation.
We are working together on a
peace process. Israel's
CJF General
Assembly Update
The 55th annual General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations, to be held
Nov. 12-16 in Chicago, will
focus on the theme "Klal
Yisrael Federation's Role in
Building Community." The
GA, the largest annual gather-
ing of North American Jewish
community leaders, will
feature plenaries, forums and
workshops on the theme and
on a wide range of topics of
broad interest and
significance.
Additional representatives
from the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County who will
be attending are Ruthe Ep-
pler, Federation Board
member; Heinz Eppler, Presi-
dent of the Joint Distribution
Committee; Ruth Wilensky,
Women's Division Board
member; Alvin Wilensky,
Federation Vice President;
and Susan Wolf-Schwartz,
Women's Division Leadership

Mrs. Wolf-Schwartz will be
presented with CJF's Young
Leadership award at the GA.

economy is recovering.
Pickering noted, however,
that there are also
"challenges" in American-
Israeli relations and "we need
to continue to work together
to deal with problems that
arise between us."
One of the challenges, the
Ambassador said, is die need
for Israel to become indepen-
dent economically and to
reduce its dependence on U.S.
economic assistance. "Ob-
viously, I am not suggesting
that Israel's future security
needs in the absence of peace
can be met without U.S. help.
But on the economic side,
there should be ways to reduce
the dependence and thus in-
crease the harmony and
mutual respect which both na-
tions feel for each other," he
said.
Pickering praised the
"remarkable economic perfor-
mance of Israel over the last
15 months." But now, he
observed, Israel should take
the next step "which is no less
crucial. This is the challenge of
economic growth."
Noting that U.S. military
assistance to Israel is "now
running at the rate of "'.8
billion each year," the Am-

A Time For
Harmony
For many months the Jewish community has strug-
gled with some very difficult and challenging issues
that will affect the development and planning of this
community for years to come. There were differences
of opinion but all concerned had a common goal and
that was to do what was best for the entire Jewish
community.
We are pleased that this past week all parties con-
cerned have reached an agreement to build the new
Jewish Community Campus on Military Trail and are
going foward together to raise the funds necessary for
this important endeavor. What is absolutely im-
perative at this point is that every segment of the
Jewish community now work together to create a
positive and harmonious environment in order for this
capital campaign to be successful. Everyone must
work towards this end if we hope to make this dream a
reality.
As one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in
the country, we have a collective responsibility; to pro-
vide the highest quality programs and services for
ourselves, our children ana our children's children. We
must realize that as a united community we can ac-
complish anything we set out to do.
Jewish tradition considers our responsibility to
maintain the Jewish community and meet Jewish
needs, to be a straight-forward, public obligation. "Kol
Yisrael, are vim zel bazeh," we say "All Jews are
responsible for one another." There has been no more
appropriate time than now, in the short history of our
Jewish community, when this statement has had
greater meaning.

For years most observers
have been convinced that Syria
provides both diplomatic cover
and physical sanctuary to
some of the world's infamous
and sinister terrorists. The
trial in Britain of Nezar Hin-
dawi, the Syrian-recruited Jor-
danian national accused of
planting explosives in the lug-
gage of his pregnant fiance
who was about to board an El
Al flight to Israel last April,
points to a more direct and
dangerous Syrian role in the
international terror network.
Hindawi has confessed to
British investigators that
Syrian military intelligence
agents supplied him with a
Syrian passport, $12,000, a
false-bottom bag containing
explosives and trained him to
arm the bomb. After the failed
attempt, Hindawi reported he
met with the Syrian am-
bassador at the embassy in
"iOndon, who contacted
Damascus for further instruc-
tions. Later, embassy officials
took him to a safe house,
where his hair was cut and
dyed. The next morning, when
two Syrian men arrived to
return him to the embassy,
Hindawi became frightened,
arousing the suspicions of an
alert desk clerk who called the
police.
The explosive-laden travel
bag would have exploded at
39,000 feet above Austria, kill-
ing all 379 passengers aboard
the Boeing 747 jet.
Similarly, Syrian participa-
tion in the recent spate of ter-
ror attacks in France is slowly
being revealed. Despite a
French government that
prefers to look the other way,
intelligence sources indicate
that Syria provided support to
the group claiming respon-
sibility for a series of terror
bombings in Paris that claimed
10 lives, wounded more than
160, and left Parisians dazed
and scared.
Imagine for a moment that
the bomb concealed on the El
Al flight had detonated, killing
everyone aboard. Two hun-
dred and twenty of the
passengers had boarded the
plane in New York. With
Syria's fingerprints clearly on
the explosives bag could the
United States be expected to
respond in much the same way
as it did after the Libyan-
instigated Berlin disco attack?
Why has Washington been
so cautious to condemn Syria
for the same acts for which it is
attacking Libya? Administra-
tion officials caution against
even commenting, claiming
this would constitute unwar-
ranted interference in the trial
of Hindawi. Period. There has
been very little talk inside the
beltway of American prepara-
tion for a Libya-like strike
against Syria or even for-
mulating economic and/or
diplomatic sanctions.
The kid gloves approach to
Syria detracts from the
strength of America's action
against Libya. Any failure to
react similarly to Syrian-
sponsored terrorism, which is
just as deadly and arguably
more extensive, allows the
world to brand the U.S. a bul-
ly. We struck back with great
resolve against a relatively
weak Libya, but when faced
with an equally wicked Syria
we have backed off.

"Much of the present 'New
Right' public discussion of
issues seems to be characteriz-
ed by that traditional scenario
of political conflict between
the 'children of light' and the
'children of darkness,' Rabbi
Tanenba -" "Hid.
There is too much
demonology in the current
discussion, which appears to
consign political candidates to
being demolished as "satanic,"
he added, with secular
humanists standing at the side
of Satan.
"One has a sense that some
'New Right' advocates
perceive America as if it were
a vast camp revival meeting,"
Rabbi Tanenbaum stated,
"whose characteristic method
was to plunge into anguish the
sinner over the state of his
soul, then bring about a confes-
sion of faith by oversimplifying
the decision as a choice bet-
ween a clear good and an ob-
vious evil."
Observing that some "New
Christian Right" spokesmen
have asserted or implied that
"the Founding Fathers" of our
nation perceived America as
"a Christian Republic," Rabbi
Tanenbaum said that such
assertions contradicted
everything Benjamin
Franklin, Thomas Jefferson,
James Madison, and others
stood and fought for.
The campaign by some
members of the "New Chris-
tian Right" to elect "born-
again Christians" to public of-
fice "is anathema to.
everything American
democracy stands for," Rabbi
Tanenbaum stated. "It
violates Article 6 of the United
States Constitution, which for-
bids the exercise of 'a religious
test' for any citizen running
for public office. The American
people must repudiate that
anti-democratic practice. Can-
didates must continue to be
judged on the basis of their
competence, their integrity,

Amendment Assures
Israel's SDI Participation
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
An amendment that could
have prevented Israel's par-
ticipation in some research for
the Reagan Administration's
Strategic Defense Initiative
(SDI) has been deleted from
the Defense Department's ap-
propriation bill for 1987.
The amendment proposed by
Sen. John Glenn (D., Ohio) was
removed during the Senate-
House conference on the ap-
propriations bill, largely
through the efforts of Rep. Jim
Courter (R., N.J.), according
to Howard Kohr, deputy direc-
tor of the National Jewish
Coalition. The Glenn amend-
ment was not aimed specifical-
ly at Israel, but at all foreign
countries that would compete
with American firms in bids
for SDI research.
This was noted by Lt. Gen.
James Abrahamson, director
of the Department of
Defense's SDI Office, during a
recent address to a group of
Jewish leaders. He said it
would not have affected
research on tactical weapons
but could have prevented other
research such as on lasers that
Israel is now doing under the
SDI program.

Helping People
Drug Abuse and Alcoholism in the Jewish Community
By NED GOLDBERG
ACSW, LCSW
A personal view from the
Assistant Executive Director
of the Jewish Family
and Children's Service
Drug abuse and alcoholism.
A lot is written about the sub-
ject and how it affects the
general community. Increas-
ingly more is being written
about its existence in the
Jewish community, where the
abuser can be adolescents,
career men and women, or
lonely, ill older adults.
Mental health professionals
learn very quickly (as does the
abuser) that drug abuse and
alcoholism have the potential
to destroy all these things that
other people value in life:
Ned Goldberg
health," family and personal
relationships, reputations,
careers, finances, and finally
spirit. Professionals are quick
to refer addicted individuals to
residential treatment pro-
grams as quickly as possible.
They know what's at risk, and
they know that the best way to
begin beating an addiction is to
forcibly deter someone from
his habit for a period of time.
A number of years ago when
I worked at an adolescent drug
center, professionals could
draw a clear line between the
infrequent abuser; the person
who occasionally drank or used
drugs to excess, but was not
physically or emotionally ad-
dicted to the drug, and the
true addict that person who
could not stop his regular
usage. The distinctions are
becoming less and less clear,
however, as extremely addic-
tive forms of cocaine, such as
crack, have been developed -
which makes casual usage dif-
ficult. In addition, more and
more lethal drugs seem to be
on the street. It makes little
difference if your are "only" a
casual drug abuser, when the
dosage of your drug is lethal.
Professionals at JFCS are
concerned, along with
everyone in the general com-
munity, about the cost of
abuse, in human lives and
human suffering. Contem-
porary families have enough
challenges to face without the
addiction (or addition) of a
family member who is pulling
everyone down along with him
or her.
If you have concerns about a
member of your family or
yourself regarding substance
abuse, call JFCS for advice.

People For the American Way Examines Religious Intolerance
The 1986 mid-term election
season, with almost a week
remaining, has produced more
incidents of religious in-
tolerance at least two dozen
than any campaign since
People for the American Way
began monitoring such in-
cidents in 1980.
In contrast to previous
years, more instances of
religious intolerance are found
at the grassroots level. In par-
ticular, many fundamentalists
with little previous political ex-
perience nave entered the
system. Most instances fall in-
to the category of a candidate
claiming to be chosen by God
for political office, and/or iden-
tifying an opponent with
Satan.
Despite the trend toward
grassroots activity, some na-
tional figures still play an im-
portant role. For example,
Tim LaHaye, chairman of the
American Coalition for Tradi-
tional Values, whose board
members include Jimmy
Swaggart and Jerry Falwell,
said, "Secular humanists
should not hold political office
in America. Ana the reason I
say that is because our Con-
stitution is not compatible with
secular humanism without
twisting it and changing it."
The most visible national
figure, however, continues to
be Pat Robertson, president of
Christian Broadcasting Net-
work and a likely candidate for
the 1988 Republican presiden-
tial nomination. People For
has treated Robertson at
length in a separate report,
but some of his recent com-
ments are relevant here:
According to the Jackson,
Miss., News, Robertson said
this at a June 2 rally in
Jackson: "On April 25, 1980,
500,000 Christians gathered
on the mall in Washington and
prayed that God would please
heal our land. It was no coin-
cidence that Ronald Reagan
was elected president; it was
the direct act of God, and that
Strom Thurmond became head
of the (U.S. Senate) Judiciary
Committee rather than Teddy
Kennedy."
After some early success
in the Michigan presidential
caucuses, Robertson sent out a
fund-raising letter for The
Freedom Council proclaiming,
"The Christians have won!...
What a thrust for freedom!
What a breakthrough for the
Kingdom!... As believers
become involved in this pro-
cess, they will be able to turn
the nation back to its tradi-
tional moral values."
Robertson told a crowd in
Michigan that Christians (by
which he means only Born-
Again Christians) "maybe feel
more strongly than others do"
about "love of God, love of
country and support for the
traditional family."
People For's report on
Robertson noted that he iden-
tifies himself with God and
calls those who disagree with
him atheists and communists
and says they are in league
with Satan. On the Sept. 4
"The 700 Chib," Robertson
acknowledged the report and
replied by calling Norman
Lear an "atheist," saying Peo-
ple For "want(s) to move us
toward a collectivist, socialist
model." Robertson closed his
political commentary by say-
ing, "God's people have to
understand that the enemy is
the Father of Lies, a
reference to Satan.
One important figure this
year is a local candidate with
important national connec-
tions, the Rev. Everett
Sileven, an unsuccessful can-
didate for governor in the
Nebraska Republican primary.
Sileven attracted national at-
tention when he was jailed for
refusing to close a Christian
school which rejected state ef-
forts at regulation. Sileven
became a cause celebre for the
Religious Right; Jerry Falwell
broadcast programs from
Sileven's church.
During his campaign,
Sileven sent out a fund-raising
letter saying "... I have God.
I know I can count on God. Can
I count on you? ... I thank you
and God thanks you."
Sileven has offered the most
detailed description yet of the
"Court of Divine Justice," in
which he, the Rev. Greg Dixon
of Indiana and Rev. Robert
McCurry of Atlanta have
prayed for God to "judge"
public officials they consider
-NOTE-

strued at an endorsement

Palm Beach County.
"wicked rulers." Sileven
claims that as a result of the
"Court of Divine Justice," a
tornado hit the city of Fort
Worth and the sheriff of the ci-
ty was injured when his horse
bucked and he came down on
his saddle-horn; a judge in
Oregon had a heart attack and
the son of a judge in
Washington was seriously in-
jured in an automobile acci-
dent. Sileven is planning to
hold a session of the Court on
the steps of the U.S. Supreme
Court in the near future.
The "Court of Divine
Justice" is part of a new "Pray
for Death" movement in which
political fundamentalists pray
for God to act against public
officials. For the first time, a
major party political candidate
has joined this movement. The
Rev. Joe Morecraft, a John
Birch Society member and
Republican congressional can-
didate in Georgia's 7th
District, said on a local radio
program that he prays for God
to remove Supreme Court
justices "in any way he sees
fit." Morecraft said, "I've
prayed God would remove the
Supreme Court justices of the
United States Supreme Court
who have consistantly (sic)
voted for the legalization of
abortion on demand several
times and I'll do it in the
future, but I'll leave it to God
to determine how he wants to
do it."
In other incidents, can-
didates and activists have tried
to exclude non-fundamentalist

manner.
Bob Plimpton, South
Florida coordinator for Pat
Robertson's Freedom Council,
distributed a flyer at Palm
Beach County churches which
said, "Wanted Qualified Chris-
tians Candidates for Palm

A new twist this year is the
attempt to use the political
process to win religious con-
verts. A flyer distributed
among fundamentalists active
in Iowa Republican county
mucuses said, "Determine to
win both friend and foe to the
Lord. Don't do anything that
will harm your testimony."
Another new dimension to
the Religious Right's activities
is the introduction of deceit in-
to the political process. The
Iowa flyer, "How to Par-
ticipate in a Political Party"
said, "The activities of the
church must not become public
knowledge. There are those
who seek to undermine our
work." The flyer advised ac-
tivists to"keep your positions
on issues to yourself," and,
citing the Gospel of John, the
flyer continued, "Jesus didn't
overwhelm even his disciples
with truth."

Martinez Returns From Israel a Vocal Supporter
By LOUISE ROSS
Assistant News Coordinator
With the Istanbul synagogue
massacre, the Pan Amhyack-
ing and the attack on Israelis
at the Western Wall, fresh on
his mind, School Board
District 4 run-off candidate
Luciano "Lou" Martinez is
convinced now more than ever
that "unless a strong posture
is taken, we will see a con-
tinuation of terrorist attacks."
Martinez, who recently
returned from an intensive ten
day tour of Israel, feels strong-
ly that there should be no con-
cessions to or negotiations
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization after hearing
first-hand the life and death
issues which confront Israelis
on a daily basis. "We must
fight the PLO in any part of
the world where there is a pro-
blem. You have to take a
strong hand with extremist
groups," he declared.
Martinez, the Executive
Director of the Hispanic
Human Resources Council in
West Palm Beach, was
selected as one of 14 Hispanic
leaders nationwide to par-
ticipate in the Smith-Kogod
Seminar which took place this
summer in Israel. It was spon-
sored by the Jerusalem In-
stitute for Israel Studies in
cooperation with Project
Interchange/America-Israel
Friendship League. The
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County also helped
underwrite Martinez's first
trip to Israel.
Lou Martinez
In an interview with the
Jewish Floridian, Martinez,
whose youthful enthusiasm
permeates all his interests
whether it's his newly acquired
respect for and knowledge of
Israel or his concern with
educational and social issues
within this community,
discussed his impressions of
Israel. "It was an outstanding
experience, probably the
highlight of my life. I have
never left the country and to
have my first trip abroad in the
Holy Land was really fan-
tastic," he said.
Martinez was amazed at how
much Israel has accomplished
since 1948. On a visit to a
desert research institute in the
Negev, he learned about cur-
rent agricultural research and
some very innovative irriga-
tion procedures. "Israel is the
only country in the world who
has been able to successfully
fight the desert and, not only
conquer it, but push it back,'
he remarked.
Being involved locally
through the HRC with a wide
range of social services to the
elderly, handicapped,
unemployed, youth and others,
Martinez was especially in-
terested in the Israeli pro-
grams which addressed these
School Board District 4 run-off candidate Lou Martinez (left)

quarter in Jerusalem (Old City) daring a recent tour of Israel.
areas. He noticed similarities
in day care centers and hous-
ing projects here and in Israel.
"Jewish, Arab and Christian
children in day care centers
got along great together as do
Hispanic, Haitian and Anglo
children in Palm Beach Coun-
ty. Children don't have biases
and prejudices," he noted. In
housing projects in both coun-
tries, he pointed out that com-
munity leaders are being iden-
tified and encouraged to
become active in the
municipalities in which they
are living.
On a visit to a high tech com-
pany specializing in education
training programs, he was able
to combine his social work
background with his interest
in education. "We saw a par-
ticu arly mobile type of
classroom located in trailers.
Computer instruction is
brought to the people rather
than having them come to the
urban communities. I think
this idea could be duplicated in
communities like Belle Glade
and others," he said.
Martinez displayed a map of
Israel showing where he nad
been. The highlighted route
spanned the entire country,
from the Golan Heights to
Eilat, from Jerusalem to the
Mediterranean. "I learned so
much," he admitted. "I was so
ignorant about the issues that
are important to the Israeli
people, the way of life over
there, even the fact that Israel
doesn't have a Constitution,
but a Declaration of In-
dependence. It makes for a
very different kind of political
process."
Upon his return, Martinez
has gotten involved with the
political process here and not
only on a local level. He has
been in touch with state and
national legislators to convince
them to take an aggressive
posture in support of Israel.
"Certainly Israel is a bastion
of democracy in the Middle
East. She must continue to
have a strong defensive
posture the Israelis taught
the world what surviving is all
about, fighting wars on many
fronts and coming out vic-
torious. We need to have the
same kind of determination
when it comes to a lot of na-
tional issues, like drug abuse."
Walking the streets of
Jerusalem, Martinez and his
colleagues felt right at home as
they looked around at the
swarthy complexions of many
of the Israelis. "We left Israel
reluctantly, with an affinity
for the people. We blended
right in with the Sephardic
Jews." He visited a kibbutz
founded in 1948 by Cubans and
was delighted as Israelis
greeted him speaking Spanish.
The group spoke with many
Sephardic Jews who had
strong opinions about the
Israeli government. Martinez
discovered that "they don't
feel that they have equal
rights. Even though they are a
majority in numbers, they are
treated like a minority within
the Israeli community." Hav-
ing the opportunity to speak
with the Sephardim reinforced
Martinez's feeling that the
tour was not completely pro-
Israel but was "very objective
and broad-based."

Nobel Laureate's Life Shaped
by Fate of Jewish People
By LISA BILLIG
ROME (JTA) Dr. Rita
Levi-Montalcini, who shared
the 1986 Nobel Prize in
Medicine and Physiology with
American biochemist Stanley
Cohen, comes from a family of
Italian Jewish intellectuals in
Turin. Now, at 77, this small,
elegant, bright-eyed woman
recalls first hearing the ex-
pression "free-thinker" from
her father, Prof. Giussepe
Levi, at the age of three.
That and deeply ingrained
feminism her idol, she says,
was Simone de Beauvoir
defined her life and work. But
her distinguished career was
also shaped by the people and
events that marked the fate of
the Jewish people in this
century.
Her family left Italy to
escape the stultifying and
repressive atmosphere of
Mussolini's fascism. They lived
in Belgium for a time, but
when the Nazis invaded in
1940, they fled back to Italy.
Because she was Jewish, she
was denied employment and
research facilities, though she
already held a doctorate.
Because of the family's op-
position to fascism, they were
forced to live clandestinely in
Florence under the assumed
name of Lovisato, from
"southern Italy," a disguise
belied by their northern Italian
accent.
In a makeshift laboratory,
set up in her bedroom, Levi-
Montalcini conducted ex-
periments secretly during the
war years. She begged for
eggs "for needy children"
from farmers and extracted
the embryos for her work. The
results of her experiments
went unpublished in fascist
Italy because "she belonged to
the Jewish race."
Recognition came in post-
war Italy and in the U.S.,
where she went in 1947 to ac-
cept a teaching and research
post with Prof. Viktor Ham-
burger at Washington Univer-
sity in St. Louis, Mo.
Levi-Montalcini was the first
woman admitted to the Pon-
tifical Academy of Science
and, in 1968, the sixth woman
to gain admittance to the
American Academy of
Science. Long before getting
the Nobel Prize, she won two
major international prizes, the
Medicineltrinelli in 1969 and
the St. Vincent in 1970.
Her Nobel Prize stemmed
from work completed in the
U.S. in 1951: discovery of
NGF, a protein growth factor
that stimulates nerve cell
development. It was the
result, she says, of an intuition
best described in a Latin pro-
verb which states that there is
physiological connection bet-
ween a sound mind and a
sound body.
The discovery, and parallel
work by Cohen, hold out pro-
mise that cures can be found
for Parkinson's and
Alzheimer's diseases, which
attack the human nervous
system. It has also led to fur-
ther research on the relation
between nerver cells and the
immunological defense
system.
Jews Must Address Drug Abuse
By BEN GALLOB
A Hasidic rabbi and
psychiatrist asserts that, "if
anything," Jews are "over
represented in substance
abuse." Rabbi Abraham Twer-
ski, medical director of the
Gateway Rehabilitation
Center in Alquippa, Pa.,
recently told a Newton, Mass.,
synagogue audience that
alcohol and drug addiction
commonly afflict American
Jews, according to the Jewish
Advocate of Boston.
He said the Jewish communi-
ty must acknowledge "this
truth" and act on it. Twerski,
who was ordained in 1951,
began studies in psychiatry
when he observed that Jews in
trouble sought counseling
from psychiatrists rather than
rabbis.
ALONG WITH marijuana,
alcohol and cocaine, Twerski
listed numerous prescription
drugs in medicine chests in
Jewish homes which he said
are abused daily. He declared
that the only time to take a
drug is during illness. He said
"coming home from work
tense is not sick. The only peo-
ple who are not tense are
dead." He urged Jews to find
natural ways to relax.
The Gateway Center offers a
drug and detoxification pro-
gram. It provides kosher diet
for patients who ask for it.

Terrorists Arrested for
Western Wall Attack
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Police announced last week
the arrests of three members
of a "terrorist squad" respon-
sible for the grenade attack on
Israeli soldiers and their
families in the Old City in
which one man was killed and
69 soldiers and civilians were
wounded.
The suspects were described
as members of an extremist
group known as the Islamic
Jihad (Holy War), all in their
20's. Further identification
was withheld by court order.
Two of them, residents of
Silwan village on the outskirts
of Jerusalem, were apprehend-
ed within 24 hours of the at-
tack. The third, who lives in
the nearby village of Abu Tor,
was taken into custody the
next morning. They were ar-
raigned in magistrates court
and remanded in custody for
seven days.
POLICE SOURCES said
the investigation is continuing,
and other arrests are possible.
According to a police state-
ment, the suspects were
recruited in Jordan in 1985 by
agents of El Fatah, the ter-
rorist arm of the Palestine
Liberation Organization. The
sources said they had planned
for nearly two years to carry
out a major assault in
Jerusalem.
The soldiers and their
families, attacked following a
swearing-in ceremony for
Israel Defense Force recruits
at the Western Wail, were a
target of opportunity, security
sources said.
It was believed earlier that
the soldiers had been a
premeditated target which
would have indicated new and
bolder terrorist tactics. Armed
IDF personnel are usually
avoided by terrorists who con-
centrate on civilian targets.
The police statement said
the arrests were made by
security forces in cooperation
with the police and that "In
the course of the investigation,
weapons and combat materiel
that were in the squad's
possession were handed over
to the authorities."
esteem characterizes
substance abusers, and that
this is common in Jewish
families, where guilt often ex-
ists and tends to create feel-
ings of inadequacy. Such feel-
ings are usually unjustified he
noted, because the guilt-ridden
often are intelligent and
likeable.
Many of his listeners were
alcoholics, drug addicts or
compulsive overeaters. Most,
it was reported, were getting
help in Alcoholics Anonymous,
Narcotics Anonymous or
Overeaters Anonymous, pro-
gram which Twerski said he
supported as safe for Jews.
Many listeners also belonged
to the Boston chapter of
Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically
Dependent Persons and
Significant Others (JACS),
which sponsoed the rabbi's
talk.
HE URGED his listeners to
let their rabbis know that ser-
mons on alcoholism and other
drug addiction were welcome
and to place notices in their
synagogue bulletins giving in-
formation on the rehabilitation
programs for alcoholics and
addicts in the Greater Boston
area.
In a talk the previous day,
Twerski urged an assembly of
Boston rabbis to discuss
alcoholism and addiction from
their pulpits and open their
synagogues to self-help
groups.
Jeff Neipris of Boston, vice
president of JACS and editor
of the organization's journal,
said that support for such pro-
grams was improving in the
Boston Jewish community.
Twerski, in his synagogue talk,
said that addiction is often
handled badly in the Jewish
community.
Neipris said that the Boston
JACS chapter was receiving
funds from the Combined
Jewish Philanthropies of
Greater Boston and that he
hoped to see a sui.stance abuse
education program established
for Jews in the Boston area.

Study: Churchill Failed
To Help European Jewry
By
MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) A
highly critical new study of Sir
Winston Churchill, Britain's
wartime leader, finds him guil-
ty of failing to give direct help
to the Jews of Europe in their
hours of greatest need.
Contrary to the usual sym-
pathetic Jewish view of Chur-
chill, it also questions the
depth of his support for the
Jewish cause in Palestine and
suggests a strong trace of op-
portunism in his support for
Zionism early in his career.
These are among the key
conclusions of Prof. Michael
Cohen, a British-bom historian
who teaches at Bar Ilan
University in Israel, and is a
familiar figure at several
American universities.
HIS CONCLUSIONS seem
to diverge from those in the
monumental portrait painted
by Churchill's official
historian, Dr. Martin Gilbert,
who, like Cohen, is a British-
born Jew. Gilbert's multi-
volume biography is still not
complete, but he has already
dealt with most of the periods
covered by Cohen.
Although Cohen's book has
been in the hands of British
newspaper reviewers for
several months, they have so
far given it virtually no atten-
tion. In view of the high ac-
claim received by his earlier
books on the emergence of the
modern Middle East, there is a
suspicion that this silence is a
measure of the impact of his
radical reassessment of his
subject.
In a chapter entitled "Chur-
chill and the Holocaust,"
Cohen explores to what extend
Churchill was guilty of turning
a blind eye to the wartime in-
formation about the progress
of Hitler's destruction of Euro-
pean Jewry.
OTHER HISTORIANS
have agreed to single Churchill
out as the one man who did
understand the enormity of
the crimes against the Jews.
But Cohen's verdict is that
however much Churchill may
nave been moved by the war-
time plight of the Jews "He
was not willing... to deal
with the problem }>ersonallv on
any regular basis."
Of Churchill's Zionism,
Cohen writes that it was not
religious or evangelical in
origin, as claimed for other
Gentile Zionists, but was based
on two "good British"
motives.
First he believed the Zionist
movement commanded power-
ful political and economic in-
fluence especially in the U.S.
Secondly, having originally op-
posed Britain taking the man-
date for Palestine, he later
welcomed the influx of Zionist
capital and technology into the
country mainly as a way of
minimizing the cost to the
British taxpayer.
Cohen stresses these
underlying attitudes to explain
why after the 1944 assassina-
tion of his close friend, Lord
Moyne, by Jewish terrorists,
Churchill's sponsorship of the
Zionist cause "jolted to an
abrupt halt."
IT ALSO explained Chur-
chill's "stony silence" on the
Palestine drama between the
end of the war and the
establishment of Israel. When
he did speak up, writes Cohen,
it was only to chastise the
government for not getting
out of Palestine sooner.
"Thus, during the two
periods of the Jews' greatest
need during the Holocaust,
and the struggle to secure
diplomatic recognition for the
State of Israel they found
Churchill wanting," he
concludes.
"Churchill and the Jews," by
Michael Cohen, is published in
Britain by Frank Cass, and in
the United States through
Biblio-Distribution Center in
Totowa, New Jersey.

did not elaborate.
Turning to other "problem
cases" between Israel and die
U.S., Pickering cited the
Jonathan Pollard espionage
case. He said it was a "pain-
ful" experience for both coun-
tries, but the case was dealt
with "in a cooperative way" by
both governments.
"With continued goodwill,
cooperation and close con-
sultation I am convinced we
can continue to deal with the
troublesome remains of the
Pollard case. Israel, of course,
has continued to commit itself
that activities of this kind in
and against the United States
are absolutely ruled out by our
friendship," Pickering said.

industries, and more."
"Specialness" is a word that
Dr. Shulman likes to use in
describing her experiences
with the women's mission.
Even though she has gone on
several major gift missions
with her husband, Alan, she
said, "There is something very
special about female to female
relationships. Even seeing
some of the same places, being
with a group of B and P
women has a specialness."
Dr. Shulman's eyes shone as
she described her excitement
of being a part of the group but
also, at the same time, stepp-
ing back and observing the in-
teraction of the women. Dur-
ing a visit to Elscint, a high-
tech industry in Haifa, as well
as sitting with B and P women
in a dialogue with the leader of
a kibbutz, she was fascinated
by the women's focus on the
totality of life.
"We as a group, focused in-
tensely on human needs, high
tech, marketing skills, rela-
tionships of politics to die kib-
butz movement, and more. We
covered a broad spectrum. The
B and P women joined in a
give and take about child care
all the way to international
marketing with the same in-
tensity and concern," she said.
The special role of women's
B and P groups, Dr. Shulman
feels, is not only for raising
dollars but for raising spirits
and camaraderie in Israel. It
also became apparent to her
after talking with B and P
women from throughout the
country that "they are work-
ing hard with the same issues
that we are, but also I realized
how much our community has
grown."
One of the highlights of this
trip that thrilled Dr. Shulman
was a Project Renewal march
through Jerusalem to the
Western Wall in conjunction
with all the other UJA mis-
sions who were meeting at the
same time. "Thousands of peo-
ple joined together to snow
their solidarity in support of
Project Renewal. It was
fabulous."
Dr. Elizabeth Shulman in Jerusalem during a recent National
United Jewish Appeal Business and Professional Women's
Mission.
Dr. Shulman returned from
Israel with a sense of how far
Israel has come but also with a
greater sense of pressure to
move ahead because the needs
are so great. "There are the
homes for the aged and the
Renewal towns with women
who are still illiterate and
children on drugs. There is not
one residential facility for
autistic children. Soldiers need
extensive remedial education,
and there are so many other
pressing priorities. Thank
God, there is no immediate
crisis, but there is so much else
to do."
At the close of all UJA mis-
sions to Israel, the participants
engage in a caucus which is an
open sharing of their financial
commitment. Dr. Shulman
characterizes this particular
caucus, which spurred a 59
percent increase in giving over
ast year, as one of the
highlights of the trip. "We had
a picnic lunch in the woods
right after visiting Yad
Vashem. I really believe that
the feelings of the group, after
havine joint experiences
throughout Israel, were a
culmination of alot of emo-
tions, but the most important
thing was that, as a group, we
could do things and feel things
together that we could not do
individually. As many times as
I have been to Israel, this was
very special because of the
bonds that grew among us
and, the interesting thing to
note, is that these feelings
come out when you are making
Vote
for the
Children
your financial commitment."
When asked about her views
of the necessity for women's
B and P groups, Dr. Shulman
noted that they were formed
because the Federation leader-
ship recognized that this was
an important segment of
women who were not being
reached. In addition to bring-
ing them into the Women s
Division family through their
financial commitment to help-
ing better the quality of life for
their fellow Jews, they are
becoming the future leaders of
this community. "Through this
group will emerge not only
givers but good solid leader-
ship. From the seven women
who went on our original
B and P mission from our com-
munity a few years ago, all of
them are involved as communi-
ty leaders in Women's Division
and/or Federation."
According to Dr. Shulman,
both the General Campaign
and Women's Division have
given birth to the B and P
group and gain their identity
through both. "I really believe
that the B and P women have
a unique blend of business savy
and passion for the cause. As a
group they are touching the
whole spectrum of life."

Waldheim's Party Rejects Anti-Semitism
NEW YORK (JTA) A
flat repudiation of anti-
Semitism by Austria's conser-
vative people's Party was hail-
ed by a Jewish leader here as
"a significant and constructive
step forward" in the after-
math of the anti-Semitism
generated in Austria during
last summer's Presidential
election campaign.
Theodore Ellenoff, president
of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, said that the People's
Party's statement, com-
municated to the AJC, was
also a "vitally important"
assurance to Austria's small
Jewish community. The com-
munity had been seriously of-
fended by the anti-Semitic
backlash to the exposure of
People's Party candidate Kurt
Waldheim's wartime Nazi past
during the campaign.
Waldheim was elected Presi-
dent of Austria by a landslide
vote last June 8.
In its statement, the Peo-
ple's Party said: "In light of
the controversies created dur-
ing the last Presidential elec-
tions, the Austrian People's
Party wishes to underscore
especially its unambiguous re-
jection of anti-Semitism
against our fellow Jewish
citizens by anyone, in any form
and under any circumstances
... We wish to assure our na-
tion, and particularly our
respected Jewish citizens, that
the People's Party is absolute-
ly determined not to tolerate
any kind of anti-Semitism and
to fight against any remnants
of this vile prejudice which
must become anathema to
Austria and to the civilized
world."
Meese Urged to Reconsider
PLO Office In U.S.
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations has called on
U.S. Attorney General Edwin
Meese "to reconsider the con-
tinuing presence of the PLO
office in Washington and those
who are using it to advance the
terrorist cause."
The Conference, which
represents 40 secular and
religious national Jewish
organizations, urged Meese to
take action following the ter-
rorist grenade attack on
Israeli soldiers and their
families in the Old City of
Jerusalem Oct. 15 in which one
man was killed and 69 soldiers
and civilians, including an
American citizen, were wound-
ed. The Palestine Liberation
Organization claimed respon-
sibility for the attack.
A telegram to Meese, signed
by Conference chairman Mor-
ris Abram, stated that "No
less than Soviet spies acting
under the guise of diplomatic
representation, the PLO
threatens the safety of
American citizens."
Abram noted: "The PLO's
Austria
Raps Israel
VIENNA (JTA) Alois
Mock, chairman of President
Kurt Waldheim's conservative
Peoples Party, sharply attack-
ed Israel for its decision to
downgrade its diplomatic
representation in Austria.
According to a report in the
daily Neue Kronenzeitung,
Mock, a candidate for the of-
fice of Prime Minister, told a
press conference in Carinthia
province that Israel's attitude
was outrageous and that he
would suggest to Waldheim
that Austria recall its Am-
bassador to Israel.
HE WAS speaking of the an-
nouncement by Israel's then
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir following Waldheim's
election victory last July, that
Israel would not replace its
Ambassador in Vienna,
Michael Elizur, when the lat-
ter retires shortly. A new en-
voy would have to present his
credentials to Waldheim,
whose Nazi past was exposed
during the election campaign.
The Vienna embassy therefore
would be left in the hands of a
Charge d'Affaires, Shamir
said.
According to Neue
Kronenzeitung, Mock said
Shamir's statement and deci-
sion reflected the views of a
few fanatics in Israel.
stated goal is to 'purge the
Zionist presence' from the
Middle East. It has vowed to
do so by armed attack, and it
continues that policy. We
believe that our country should
reconsider allowing the same
PLO to operate a so-called 'in-
formation' office in
Washington. The PLO's con-
tinued presence in our midst
poses a danger to the security
of Americans while the implied
recognition that the U.S.
grants to the PLO by permit-
ting it to operate serves to
enhance its position and
stature."

Move to Combat
Anti-Semitism In Latin America
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Latin American Bishops Con-
ference, in an historic move to
combat anti-Semitism, has
drawn up guidelines for the
use of Catholic educators in
teaching about Jews and
Judaism. The guidelines are
the product of a Catholic-
Jewish meeting in Bogota, Col-
ombia, sponsored by the
Bishops Conference, the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith and the Latin American
Jewish Congress.
According to Rabbi Leon
Klenicki, director of ADL's In-
terreligious Affairs Depart-
Emdowment
Committee

dowment Fund Committee.
Mrs. Berman also is involved
with the Jewish Community
Center and currently is a
member of its Board of
Directors.
In accepting her reappoint-
ment, Mrs. Nickman said. "I
am pleased to be asked to help
lead the Women's Division En-
dowment Committee for the
second year. We have made
great strides during our first
year, and with Ruth, I am look-
ing forward to involving more
and more women in providing
a financial foundation for our
Jewish community."
Mrs. Berman added, "Hav-
ing been involved with our
Jewish community in varying
capacities, I am very excited
about this new opportunity to
help insure an ongoing finan-
cial commitment for the
future."
ment, who led a six-member
ADL delegation to Bogota, the
guidelines will be finalized in
December and submitted to
church leaders, including
Latin American cardinals,
some 900 bishops across the
continent, and Catholic
educators.
They are intended to:
Remove vestiges of anti-
Semitism from teaching the
New Testament, from Passion
Plays and Passion Week
sermons.
Ensure that Jews are not
held responsible for the death
of Jesus.
Foster a spirit of
neighborliness toward Latin
American Jews so they will be
viewed, according to Klenicki,
"as people next door instead of
only as those mentioned in the
Bible."
Teach Catholics about
Jews and Judaism, even in
areas where there are no Jews,
because of the significance of
uch knowledge in understan-
iing the roots of Catholicism.
Emphasize the
significance of the State of
Israel for Jewish communities

in Latin America and

Drafted Sept. 15-17 at the
Bogota meeting with the par-
ticipation of some 50 leading
Catholic educators, the
guidelines represent the
culmination of interreligious
discussions with Latin
American bishops dating back
to 1968 when ADL first
organized a meeting of
Catholics and Jews in Bogota.
Klenicki said that the
guidelines, when adopted, will
represent another step for-
ward in the Catholic Church's
desire to improve relations
with Jews in the spirit of
Vatican pronouncements over
the past two decades.
He noted that discussions at
the Bogota conference includ-
ed the negative aspects in
some Catholic religious doc-
trines which lead to contempt
of Jews. Conference lectures
by Catholic and Jewish
scholars dealing with the New
Testament, understanding
Judaism, Jewish learning and
Jewish life, and the Gospel of
John were used as background
information for drafting the
guidelines, Klenicki said.

Friday, October 31, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Study Shows LaRouche Organization on Ropes
NEW YORK (JTA) The
LaRouche organization,
already reeling from federal
indictments, also suffered bat-
tering defeats in the 1986
primaries, according to an
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith analysis. The ADL
said that of 234 candidates in
26 states, only 13 managed to
win, of which nine were for un-
contested nominations, and
none of the 13 is expected to
win in November.
In making the study public,
Nathan PerTmutter, ADL's na-
tional director, attributed the
LaRouche candidates' overall
poor performance more
than half received less than
one-tenth of the vote to an
informed electorate made
aware of the true nature of the
LaRouche-sponsored National
Democratic Policy Committee
(NDPC) in the aftermath of its
startling victory in Illinois last
spring.
He pointed out that since the
two LaRouchites' surprise vic-
tory in the Illinois Democratic
primary nominations for
Lieutenant Governor and
Secretary of State, "the media
has given much coverage to
the LaRouche cult's extremist
and outlandish views. Its ef-
fect has been salutary for the
purpose of an informed
Attitudes Harden
An Israeli public opinion poll
taken during the first two
weeks of September showed
increased support for peace
negotaitions with the Arabs
"on the condition that they do
not include the PLO. This con-
tinues a two-year trend, the
poll noted.
However, the poll indicated
that "the same period has
witnessed a hardening of the
public's positions on possible
concessions for peace, new set-
tlements in the administered
territories and attitudes
towards the Arabs in the ter-
ritories." Fifty-two percent of
the respondents said that
Israel should not negotiate
with the PLO even if the
organization recognizes the
Jewish state and renounces
terrorism, while 43 percent
thought that Israel should
negotiate with the PLO under
such circumstances. And 54
percent said that Israel should
not suggest territorial com-
promises in peace talks with
the Arabs, while 37 percent
said it should.

electorate."
Perlmutter added, however,
that although so many
LaRouchite candidates have
been rejected, the NDPC
managed to register just
enough gains "to create the
appearance basically a false
one that LaRouche and his
followers are a political force
of consequence.
The ADL analysis noted that
since Illinois, the LaRouchites
were roundly defeated. They
lost six gubernatorial can-
didacies out of six primaries
entered; 14 out of 14 U.S.
Senate primaries entered; 137
out of 144 contests for the U.S.
House; 24 out of 27 State
Senate primary races; and 32
out of 33 State House primary
races.
The ADL analysis, based on
reports from its regional of-
fices around the country and
prepared by the Fact Finding
Department of the agency's
Civil Rights Division, revealed
the following:
NDPC candidates ran in
Republican as well as
Democratic primaries in eight
states New Hampshire,
Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, In-
diana, Texas, California and
Oregon indicating a trend
toward more evenly dividing
their forces between the major
parties.
The LaRouche candidates
benefltted in certain instances
from low primary turnout, par-
ticularly in areas where the
party in whose primary they
ran was weak.
They fared far worse in
primary races where they ran
against well-known can-
didates. In Maryland's
Democratic senatorial contest,
for example, longtime
LaRouche activist Debra
Freeman, running against
Congressmen Michael Barnes
and Barbara Mikulski, receiv-
ed a mere one percent of the
vote.
Although the LaRouche
organization has long espous-
ed anti-Semitic views, the can-
Page 15
didates generally avoided
openly expressing them.
The seven Congressional
nominations won were in un-
contested Democratic
primaries in Illinois, Ohio,
Pennsylvania and Texas (two
of the seven later dropped
out). A LaRouchite won an un-
contested Democratic primary
for the State House of
Representatives in Idaho, and
in Maryland, a LaRouchite
won the Republican primary
for the State Senate, also un-
contested. Two LaRouche can-
didates in Michigan won the
Democratic nominations for
the State Senate in strongly
Republican districts.
Perlmutter said that "so
long as the LaRouche cult re-
mains active, exposure is its
most effective antidote."
The challenge of the future...
Preserve the quality
of life for our families.
MMy parents
retired here because
they saw Florida as The
American Dream.
But South Floridians
face the same problems
all Americans face, like
teacher shortages, over-
crowding, pollution,
teenage pregnancy
and drug abuse.
No matter how we look at them, these are all
family issues. The challenge of the future is to
make sure that for our children, the dream
doesnl become a nightmare.
It's not going to be easy.
For Florida, the tough decisions
are still to be made. I want to use
the skills IVe developed as a lawyer
to make those decisions. That's
why I'm a candidate for

The UAHC's anti-apartheid
campaign is being carried out
in cooperation with other
religious groups, including the
Interfaith Center for Cor-

Among these efforts in
which the UAHC is
cooperating are anti-apartheid
strategies that seek to put
economic presssure on
American corporations to
withdraw from South Africa
such as "no-buy" campaigns to
boycott stores that sell South
African merchandise, the
targeting of corporations and
banks with substantial invest-

port of divestment programs
on the local, state and federal
level.

NCJW Receives Grant
from Ford Foundation
The National Council of
Jewish Women (NCJW) has
received a $50,000 grant from
the Ford Foundation for its
research project, "Mothers in

rapidly changing needs of
families in which mothers
work.
"Mothers in the Workplace"
Normalizing
Relations
Reagan Administration officials have said repeatedly
that normalizing relations between Egypt and Israel as
called for in the Camp David Accords and the Egypt-Israel
peace treaty is vital. They have pointed out that nor-
malization is-necessary to breathe life into the dry language
of the diplomatic documents and to set an example that
might, some day, bring other Arab states into what is call-
ed "the peace process."
Those observations are correct, but they fail to address
another key area of normalization. A host of nations, in-
cluding U.S. allies and friends, maintain relations with
Israel that can hardly be described as normal. Among them
are countries which assert their desire to play a role in pro-
moting Arab-Israeli peace and press Israel but not the
Arab states to make concessions.
A short list includes:
Great Britain, which embargoes arms sales to Israel
but, despite Israeli protests, sells advanced weaponry to a
number of Arab states. London also has refused repeatedly
to sell Israel oil from its North Sea fields.
France, which since De Gaulle's vengeful reversal in
1967 also embargoes arms sales to Israel while
simultaneously selling large quantities to Arab states.
Japan, seen by observers in Washington and Jerusalem
alike as a leading suspect when it comes to complying with
the Arab Leabue's economic boycott of Israel.
The Vatican, which periodically seeks to play a
mediating role in Middle Eastern conflicts but refuses to
establish diplomatic relations with Israel.
Greece, a NATO and Common Market member which
frequently hosts PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat or his
deputies, but carefully calibrates contacts with Israel and
accords it only partial diplomatic representation.
Literally dozens of nations in Africa and Asia maintain
extensive but quiet agricultural, educational, military and
commercial ties with the Jewish state yet they extend
diplomatic recognition to the PLO. One hundred and
twenty-two countries maintain diplomatic relations with or
grant recognition to the PLO, an organization still pledged
to Israel's destruction. Only 79 have full diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel, and ten more recognize it but have not ex-
changed ambassadors.
There has been some progress. Several African states
have reestablished relations, low-level diplomatic connec-
tions are being restored with Poland and talks have been
held with other Eastern European countries. China has ex-
pressed interest in commercial relations. Japan's deputy
foreign minister visited Israel recently. England, France
and Israel have discussed anti-terrorism cooperation. And
formal talks have been held with the Soviet Union. These
otherwise unremarkable developments are noteworthy just
because international treatment of Israel is so abnormal.
Dozens of countries especially leading states like Great
Britain, France and Japan can do something very simple
to promote Arab-Israeli peace, they can normalize their
relations with Israel. Then they can be part of the process.

established to improve condi-
tions which promote the
growth and development of
children through applied
research. According to Doris
Singer, chairperson of this
project for the Palm Beach
Section, the study is the
largest of its kind
conducted.
"Family life has dramatical-
ly changed during the past
three decades with over 50
percent of all mothers with
children under the age of six
now part of the paid labor
market. Today's family may be
run by a single parent or con-
sist of children from a variety
of marriages. These changes
along with shifts in childbear-
ing and childrearing patterns
in the United States are some
of the issues to be explored by
the study," states Helen
Abrams, Vice-President of
Community Affairs.
During the first stage of the
project, NCJW volunteers
across the country from over
100 sections are surveying
employers to determine what
policies and benefits are pro-
vided in the workplace to sup-
port family formation and
childrearing.
In the second stage, NCJW
members will interview work-
ing women during their last
trimester of pregnancy to
determine the relationships
between parenting decisions
and the availability of "family
benefits" at work. For the
final stage of the project,
follow-up phone interviews
will be conducted with the
women from the second stage
after they give birth to see
what decisions mothers ac-
tually make regarding
parenting.
"Mothers in the
Workplace," begun in May
1986, will be completed by the
spring of 1987. Final data will
be given to policymakers at the
state and federal levels. Par-

A Controversial Case of Alleged Conspiracy
(Part One
Of A Three-Part Series)
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) At-
torneys for some of 17 defen-
dants, including four Israelis
charged here with conspiracy
to illegally sell American
weapons to Iran, have made
motions to dismiss the charges
on grounds of entrapment,
lack of jurisdiction for the case
in New York and prejudicial
pretrial publicity.
A hearing on the motion
before a federal judge in the
Manhattan U.S. District Court
began last Monday. After
hearing from the defense and
prosecution, the court will
decide whether to dismiss the
charges.
AN AFFIDAVIT filed late
last month in support of this
motion by Paul Grand, one of
the attorneys representing
Sam Evans who is the alleged
middleman in the conspiracy,
contends that high-ranking
Administration, State Depart-
ment and Pentagon officials
considered and eventually ap-
proved covert arms sales of
American military hardware
to Iran, using some of the
defendants as agents.
Grand also alleges that U.S.
Customs agents and a govern-
ment informant in the case
pressured the defendants to
use illegal means to obtain the
weapons for Iran, while the
defendants insisted on using
legal means.
Grand's affidavit, based on
some 200 tapes the govern-
ment recorded with the help of
the informant and numerous
interviews with defendants in
the case, claims that Vice
President George Bush,
Secretary of Defense Caspar
Weinberger, Marine Corps
commandant Gen. P.X. Kelley
and unnamed State Depart-
ment and Pentagon officials
were in contact directly with
several of the defendants and
were involved in an active
debate over changing U.S.
government policy to begin
covert arms sales to Iran on a
quiet level.
GRAND AND other defense
attorneys received access to
copies of the government
tapes as part of the discovery
process in criminal cases. In
iis affidavit, Grand quotes
om taped conversations bet-
een the defendants and the
oyernment informant in
hich the defendants say they
et with Bush's aides in West
rmany to discuss an arms
eal with the Iranians and that
ush had given "the green
The affidavit also cites press
eports in which an unnamed
h'te House official
cknowledged "a secret tilt
award Iran after six years of
lutual hostility" within the
?gan Administration. This
icial reportedly stated the
IS. hopes to solidify relations
ith "reasonable" leaders in
ehran and "regularize" the
flow from the U.S.
[rectly to Iran instead of go-
re through middlemen, one of
"ch was identified as Israel.
[THE WEAPONS allegedly
Vjer negotiation included F-4
W F-5 fighter iets, C-130
^uP0r^ planes, thousands of
>W missiles, Hawk missiles,
^winders, Sparrow guided
[ssiles and Skyhawk aircraft.
According to the indictment,
the weapons were already in
the possession of Israel and
three unnamed countries, and
the defendants were conspir-
ing to resell the arms without
obtaining the proper licenses
for resale from the State
Department. The State
Department is the ultimate
authority for approving
foreign military aid.
Under the U.S. ban imposed
on selling American arms to
Iran, those licenses called end-
user certificates could not be
obtained legally. Both the
Israeli defendants and their at-
torneys claim the Israeli
government was aware of the
alleged negotiations. Since
1979, a number of reports of
Israeli sales of American-made
spare parts and weapons have
surfaced in the press. Israel
has steadfastly denied the
allegations and press reports.
American government of-
ficials responded to the allega-
tions in the affidavit with con-
sistently firm denials of any in-
volvement of U.S. officials or
government agencies in ap-
proving the covert sale of
American weapons to Iran.
THE INDICTMENT issued
in April charged 17 defendants
with 51 counts of conspiracy to
resell some $2.5 billion of
American weapons earmarked
for Israel and three other
unspecified countries to Iran.
Other charges included mail
and wire fraud.
Three Israelis and one
American resident of Israel
are among the 17 defendants
charged in the conspiracy. The
four are out on bond awaiting
their trial scheduled for late
November in U.S. District
Court in Manhattan.
The case broke with the ar-
rest of Evans, an American,
and the four Israelis upon their
arrival in Bermuda on Apr. 29.
They believed they were going
to sign the contracts for the
arms deal.
But in cooperation with the
U.S. government, the Bermu-
dian government had placed
Saudis
Give PLO
$28.5 Million
LONDON (JTA) Saudi
Arabia gave the PLO $28.5
million earlier this month, the
World Jewish Congress
reported. Announcement of
the transfer of the funds was
made in a statement from the
Saudi Press Agency in Riyadh,
monitored here by WJC
sources.
Rafiq Al-Natshah, the PLO
representative in Riyadh, said
that the sum represents Saudi
Arabia's annual contribution
to the PLO and was in accor-
dance with the resolution of
the Baghdad Arab summit
held in 1979. Natshah said,
"More than any other state
Saudi Arabia has fulfilled its
commitment to support the
PLO regularly and consistent-
ly, not only financially but also
politically and socially."
the hve on a Stop List, and
upon their arrival they were
arrested for illegal entry. One
month later, the Bermudian
government extradited the
five to the U.S.
THE U.S. Customs Depart-
ment and the U.S. Attorney's
Office of the Justice Depart-
ment built their case on what
Grand's affidavit claims was
an elaborate sting operation
conducted with the coopera-
tion of a former Iranian arms
procurement agent, Cyrus
Hashemi, who was indicted in
the U.S. in 1984 for selling
American-made weapons to
Iran.
Hashemi, who posed as an
arms buyer for the Iranian
government, agreed to record
various meetings and phone
conversations with the defen-
dants as part of a cooperation
agreement made with the
government in which he would
not stand trial immediately for
1984 indictment.
Hashemi, the government's
key witness, died of acute
leukemia in a London hospital
in July. After an official in-
vestigation into the cause of
death, the U.S. Attorney's of-
fice in Manhattan concluded
that Hashemi died of "ap-
parently natural cir-
cumstances," indicating that
there were no suspicious cir-
cumstances surrounding his
death between the indictment
and the trial.
THE GOVERNMENT'S
case now relies almost entirely
on some 200 tapes of phone
conversations and meetings
between Hashemi and the
defendants.
Grand used excerpts from
the tapes in his affidavit to
show that Hashemi attempted
at every step of the negotia-
tions to encourage the defen-
dants to obtain American arms
illegally. The excerpts show
that the defendants insisted on
exhausting all the legal chan-
nels for obtaining the arms
with legitimate American ap-
proval. The excerpts also show
that the defendants were con-
vinced that U.S. officials were
going to give that approval.
In the tapes, Hashemi also
turned down several of the
defendants' offers to sell Iran
non-American weaponry, in-
cluding French Mirage jets.

Brandeis Divests South African Holdings
WALTHAM, Mass. (JTA)
Brandeis University has
sold its stock in three U.S.
companies that were found not
to be in compliance with
university policies governing
investments in firms doing
business in South Africa,
Brandeis President Evelyn E.
Handler has announced.
The three companies whose
stocks were sold are Reynolds
and Reynolds Company,
Schlumberger Ltd., and Union
Camp Corp. The total value of
the stocks is approximately
$200,000, about 6.5 percent of
the university's holdings in
companies doing business in
South Africa.
The action is the result of a
new policy on South Africa-
related stocks adopted by the
university's Board of Trustees
this summer. The policy re-
quires that companies in the
Brandeis portfolio with South
Africa operations subscribe to
the expanded Sullivan Prin-
ciples, which call for activities
beyond the workplace in
ameliorating the plight of
South African blacks.
The Board also voted to con-

sider full divestment in May,
1987 if significant reform of
South Africa's apartheid
policies has not occurred.
The Board's measures also
prohibit new investments in
companies not currently in the
university's endowment port-
folio that enter South Africa
after January 1, 1987. They
also continue the board's
policy of selling stock in com-
panies that do not earn the
highest performance ratings
under the Sullivan Principles,
to which Brandeis has
subscribed since 1977 in gover-
ning its South Africa-related
investments.
Following the Board's action
this summer, Handler sent let-
ters to all South Africa-related
companies in the university's
portfolio, asking for "substan-
tive details of the company's
active involvement, future
plans and commitment to en-
ding the system of apartheid in
South Africa."
"Most firms are in com-
pliance with our policies," said
Handler. "Those that ap-
peared not to be were subject
to further investigation. In the
case of two of those companies
whose stock had been purchas-
ed earlier this year, we could
not verify to our satisfaction
that they had signed the
Sullivan Principles. In the case
of the third firm, the universi-
ty treasurer asked our invest-
ment manager to double-check
its compliance with our
policies and new information
led to the sale of its stock."
The investment in
Schlumberger was reversed as
soon as the university officials
became aware of the holding,
Handler said. The Reynolds
and Reynolds stock was sold
because the university was
unable to verify that the com-
pany had signed the Sullivan
Principles even though the
company indicated that it had
applied to become a Sullivan
signatory.
The investment managers
who purchased Union Camp
stock were unaware of the fact
that the company was doing
business in South Africa, she
said. Brandeis' new pro-
cedures governing South
Africa-related investments
caused the management firm
to recheck the company's
holdings. They discovered
that, since their last check,
Union Camp had purchased a
British firm doing business in
South Africa that had not sign-
ed the Sullivan Principles.

Max B. Shapiro, President
of the Palm Beach Liturgical
Culture Foundation, has an-
nounced that there will be a
luncheon for representatives
from local synagogues to learn
about the upcoming Cantonal
Concert scheduled for Mar. 15
at the West Palm Beach
Auditorium. The lunch will be
held on Sunday, Nov. 2, noon,
at the Century Village Holiday
Inn (exit 40, Florida
Turnpike).
At the lunch the represen-
tatives will learn how their
participation in the Cantorial
Concert will add to their fund-
raising efforts.
The Liturgical Foundation is
also concerned with the fact
that there is a growing shor-
tage of fully qualified cantors
worldwide. Trie problem of
replacing retired cantors is
rapidly developing into a
ensis.
As a result of the need to en-
courage young people to
become cantors, the Palm
Beach Liturgical Culture
Foundation is prepared to of-
fer scholarships to any child at-
tending Hebrew or Day School
who shows an interest and has
a voice and ear for Jewish
music, and is willing to be
taught by a professional. The
Foundation will be working
with synagogues to elicit their
help with this.

PLO: At Home in Washington
At a time when the United
States is urging action against
international terrorism, die
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion (PLO) continues to
operate an office in the na-
tion's capital. But
Washington's hospitality
toward the PLO may be runn-
ing out as Congress and the
Justice Department in-
vestigate the Palestine Infor-
mation Office's (PIO)
activities.
In documents filed with the
Justice Department, the infor-
mation office states that it is
wholly supported by the PLO.
Last year, the PIO received
$280,000 from the PLO to "br-
ing the views of the Palesti-
nian people... to the atten-
tion of the American people as
well as to government officials
throughout the U.S."
The office disseminates
publications, arranges speak-
ing tours and meets with
foreign diplomats, mostly from
Arab and East European coun-
tries. Last year, PIO staff
members conducted their first
meetings with Congressmen
on Capitol Hill.
A State Department
spokesman defended the
operation of the PIO office
saying that it may engage in
diplomatic activity as long as it
is registered as a foreign agent
and staffed by permanent
residents of the United States.
The same activities, performed
by non-U.S. residents working
as diplomats, would be illegal
since the United States does
not recognize the PLO.
The Senate recently adopted
a measure introduced by Sen.
Frank Lautenberg (D., N.J.)
directing the Justice Depart-
ment to investigate whether
the PIO is in full compliance
with the Foreign Agents
Registration Act (FARA).
Although the office has been
open since 1978, the Justice
Department, which oversees
the activities of foreign agents
in the United States, has never
conducted an on-site evalua-
tion of the PIO's activities.
Speaking to the Conference
of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions recently, Attorney
General Edwin Meese reveal-
ed that the Justice Depart
ment already has begun to look
into charges that the PIO
might be engaged in .activities
for which it is not registered.
Should the investigation
reveal that the PIO is acting in
violation of FARA, its con-
tinued operation would be call-
ed into question.
The renewed interest in the
PIO follows two hearings con-

ducted earlier this year by the
Senate Subcommittee on
Security and Terrorism. Sub-
committee Chairman Sen.
Jeremiah Denton (R., Ala.)
called the sessions to examine
the role of Yasir Arafat and
the PLO in international ter-
rorism and to explore how the
United States can respond.
In his opening remarks, Den-
ton decried the PLO's "cult of
righteous violence" and asked
committee members to assess
how Arafat can be made ac-
countable for his actions
through the "full weight" of
U.S. resources and interna-
tional law.
Throughout the hearing,
Denton called for tighter con-
trol of PLO activity in the
United States in order to pre-
vent the terrorist organization
from "building a terrorist in-
frastructure and expanding
their propaganda machine
within this country." A Justice
Department witness said he
could not assure the commit-
tee that "any and all (PIO of-
fice) activities are legal."
Testifying before the com-
mittee, Lautenberg expressed
his concern that the PIO office
in Washington might be used
as a base for terrorism and
urged that it be registered
under the Voorhis Act, a
statute applied to organiza-
tions which engage in civilian
military activity and advocate
the violent overthrow of a
government. The act would re-
guire the PLO to disclose the
full extent of its operations
and funding. Citing reports
that the PLO offices in Europe
have been used in planning ter-
rorist attacks, Lautenberg
said: "The fear that this
Washington office could be us-
ed as a base for terror is not
farfetched ... We should not
take that chance."
