AS HE HAS frequently
stressed in the past, Haig said
the autonomy talks between Is-
rael and Egypt are now going on
and a Sinai peacekeeping force is
ready to take over when Israel
withdraws on Apr. 25, although
Egypt and Israel had been dead
locked over those issues when the
Administration took office.
He said Egypt and Israel are
now "talking about means of
bridging differences" rather than
just airing their differences
themselves. Haig stressed that
the U.S., as well as Israel and
Egypt, is committed to the Camp
David process because "there is
no alternative process" that has a
chance of bringing peace to the
Middle East.
But, he noted, both Egypt and
Israel are now going through a
difficult time. He said that for
Egypt, the death of President
Anwar Sadat means that his suc-
cessor, President Hosni Mub-
arak, has to assert his own
policies. For Israel, this is a
"traumatic" time, Haig said. He
explained that this is not only be-
cause Israel is giving up Sinai
but also has to uproot Jewish
settlers there.

high school students were
wounded by Israeli soldiers dur-
ing a melc- in Nablus over the
weekend. One, with a bullet in his
stomach, underwent surgery and
was reported to be out of danger.
The other was hit in the leg.
According to an army spokes-
man, the soldiers fired into the au-
to break up a stone-throwing
demonstration protesting the
continued shutdown of Bir Zeit
University. The spokesman said
an investigation of the incident
proved that the soldiers had
acted strictly in accordance with
standing orders on the use of fire
arms to protect themselves.

control of media and banks,
crime, multilateral corporations,
government, and the theater."
ARTICLES have appeared
widely which even accuse Jews of
collaborating with Hitler to
destroy the European Jewish
community, to destroy the Soviet
Union, and to strengthen a
Jewish state. The Soviet press
has also accused Jews of stimu-
lating anti-Semitism and setting
fire to synagogues in order to
settle in Israel.
In addition. anti-Jewish mate-
rial has been distributed to
recruits of the Red Army and
published in official journals of
the Sov iet armed forces.
The Soviets also export anti-
Semitism to Arab. African and
other Third World countries.
V\ ntings of outspoken Soviet
anti-Semites have been widely
distributed by the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, distributed
in English throughout the Eng-
lish-speaking world.

said, that two nations *ritd in

What makes such astonishing
achievements possible is a blend
of faith and modern technology,
stubbornness, hard work, the
courage to take risks, and
suprisingly an ample supply of
water. Specialists in desert re-
search estimate that there is a'
sufficient supply of underground
fossil" water to produce 25 to 30
cubic meters for 30 years to come.
Fossil" water has a high salt
content. When the first settlers
here used it to water their crops,
alt deposits formed on the
leaves, killing the plants. Break-
throughs in desert agriculture
have, however, diminished this
Drip irrigation, an Israeli inno-
vation of the 1960s, trickles con-
trolled amounts of water directly
onto plant roots, which are more
salt-resistant than the leaves are.
To rinse out accumulated salt
deposits at root level, a procedure
has been introduced for "wash-
ing" the oil once each season. In
addition, drip irrigation permits
farmers to feed fertilizers and
fungicides to crops along with
water so that plants receive extra
nutrient": and protection. These
techniques, combined with year-
round sunshine, favorable tem-
peratures, and the high degree of
radiation characteristic of this re-
gion, make two planting seasons
possible, thereby doubling pro-
duction and earnings.
While breakthroughs in
modern agriculture are helping

mand that their numbers be

Leo Frank Recalled
Reputation is Finally Being Cleared
The anti-Semitic frenzy
that swept Atlanta, Ga.,
nearly 70 years ago,
culminating in the lynching
of Leo Frank, a Jewish
factory employee, was
recalled by the revelations
of 83-year-old Alonzo Mann
that absolve Frank of the
murder for which he was
found guilty in 1913.
Frank, then 29, a supervisor at '
a local pencil factory, was con--
vk-U'd of killing 14-year-old Mary
Phagan who worked at the fac-
tory. Mann, a teenager at the
time also employed at the fac-
tory, told the Nashville Tennes-
1 sean that he saw the true mur-
derer, janitor Jim Conley, carry-
ing the limp body of the dead girl
to the basement.
FRANK'S sensational trial drew
mobs to the Atlanta courthouse
shouting "Kill the Jew." One
newspaper referred to the ac-
cused as a "Jew Sodomite."
Frank was convicted and sen-
tenced to hang, but in 1915
Georgia Gov. John Slaton com-
muted the sentence to life im-
prisonment. This revived mot
fury. Vigilantes, calling them-
selves Knights of Mary Phagan,
dragged Frank from the prison
farm where he was held and
hanged him in Marietta, Ga.
The Knights of Mary Phagan
became the nucleus of the reborn
Ku Klux Klan in Georgia. Armed
anti-Semitic mobs roamed the
streets of Atlanta, forcing Jewish
shopkeepers to board up their
places of business.
Jewish businesses were boy-
cotted and about half the state's
:$,(XX) Jews reportedly moved
away. Those events led to the
formation of the A nti-Defama-
tion I-eagueof B'nai B'rith.

about the Phagan murder, told
the Tennessean reporters Jerry
Thompson and Robert Shelborne
that he kept silent initially out of

He said that because of their
mongoloid appearance, the chil-
dren tend to generate immediate,
set responses among "normal"
persons who come into contact
with them. These responses, in
turn, haye a determining effect
on the youngsters' behavior and
functioning. "Thus, changing the
patients' appearance should also
change the responses they meet
in the community." Feuerstein
Lemperle, who addressed a
lull day symposium at Hadassah
on "Surgical and Cognitive In-
tervention among Mongoloids,"
said that the best results from
surgical intervention are ob-

The fact that our nation as
a whole tolerates and encour-
ages so many different cur-
rents of belief and behavior
actually bolsters the alleg-
iance that each of our
citizens feels for the United
States. It has given our
nation a flexibility and sense
of comprehension about
foreign affairs that is unique
in the world.
The Jewish community of
the Palm Beach area
exemplifies this American
tradition. While maintaining
the ethic and folklore that
are so uniquely Jewish, its
members have never for-
gotten they are Americans.
Even when met with intoler-
ance, the Jewish community
has continued to advocate
social equality for all peo-
ples. Your new project repre-
sents a continuation of that
United State. Seaet*

He Went to Jerusalem
One final accolade: In going to Israel, President
Mitterrand went to Jerusalem, the capital city of,
that nation. He made no fuss about it as others have
done from Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on
down. That show of ?ood faith is something Israel
will not easily forget.
None of this tempered Mitterrand's statement
about his firm belief that Israel must come to recog-
nize the need to accept a Palestinian state on the
West Bank and in Gaza.
On the other hand, it performed the important
service of separating Palestinian identity from the
person of Yasir Arafat. And suggested that Palestin-
ian doesn't necessarily mean the PLO.
Whether or not we agree with him is beside the
point. Mitterrand's trip was an act of courage and
friendship. As such, it must be treated with care.
Russian Mind-Control
We are heartened by Carl Alpert's report that
the Russians are preparing to take over the world by
mind-control and other trickeries in the grab-bag of
Have we made a mistake? No. We are heartened
because it suggests that people have minds in the
first place. Judging by the wealth of news arguing to
the contrary we come up on the happy side.
Do people have minds when there is so much
bigotry among them? Do they have minds when they
are prone to such high levels of violence? Do they
have minds when they hail charlatans with hosan-
nahs? When they crown mediocrity with encomiums?
Our problem is to figure out what the Russians
are going to do with these minds once they attempt
mastery over them by mind-control. The Russian as-
sumption must be that mankind, controlled, will be a
perfect zombie, performing as commanded.
But what if Moscow is wrong? Frankenstein's
monster ran amok. If things are bad enough now, be-
fore their parapsychologists get to work, how will
they be if the Muscovites fail?
World Jewish Population
NEW YORK (ZINS) Of the total of 13,027,900
world Jewish population, 6.492,000 (49.8 percent) live in
the Americas: 2.969.500 (22.8 percent) in Europe, in-
cluding the Asian parts of the Soviet Union and Turkey
3.328.000 (25.5 percent) in Asia: 164.500 (1.3 percent) in
Africa, and 74.000 (0.6 percent) in Oceania, according to
the American Jewish Year Book, published by the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
With regard to major regions within continents,
5,998,000 Jews live in Northern America and about
494,000 in Central and Southern America; 1,120,000 in
Western Europe, and 1,849,000 in Eastern Europe and
the Balkans; 3,282,700 in Israel, and about 45,000 in
other Asian countries (including the Asian territories of
the USSR and Turkey); 21,000 in Northern Africa, and
110,000 in Southern Africa.
SINCE THE U.S. Census Bureau does not identify
Jews as an ethnic group, and therefore does not collect
data on Jewish population, the Year Book points out that
its figures are provided primarily through an annual sur-
vey of Jewish federations. Formal population studies are
conducted in some communities, while others estimate
roughly on the basis of lists of known Jewish households.
Turning to the world scene, the Year Book cites that
after the United States countries with significantly large
numbers of Jews are: Israel, 3,282,000; Soviet Union
1.700.000: France, 535,000; Great Britain, 390,000
Canada. 380,000; Argentina, 242,000; Brazil, 110,000
and South Africa, 108,000.
Levtton Joins With Leaden of 119 Jewish Agenciet
Assail U.S. Arms-Sale to Arabs
Elsie Leviton. the chairperson
of the Community Relations
Council. Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, joined with
the heads of 107 other Jewish
community relations councils in
cities across the United States,
and 12 major national Jewish
community relations agencies, in
a letter of protest to President
Reagan over continuing U.S.
arms-sales to Arab states, and
recent proposals to supply ad-
vanced weapons to Jordan.
The letter to Reagan was
signed bv the leaders of all 120
groups, member agencies of the
National Jewish Community Re-
lations Advisory Council (NJ-
CRAC). the national coordinat-
ing body for the field of Jewish
community relations.
In releasing the letter,
NICRAC Chairman Bennett
Yiinowitz noted the growth of
Jewish community concern after
recent press reports of state-
ments, widely attributed to De-
fense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger, that advocated the sale of
F-16 fighter planes and mobile
"Hawk" anti-aircraft missiles to
Jordan, and that propounded an
Administration desire to "re-
direct" American policy away
from Israel toward "friendly"
Arab countries.
The Jewish groups* letter ex-
pressed "alarm that the United
States, rather than acting to
stem the massive arms build-up
in the Arab world, continues to
be a major purveyor of
weaponry." That policy, the let-
ter tated. "endangers peace in
the region, threatens the security
of Israel, and undermines the
long-term interests of the United
The Jewish leaders' letter also
pointedly asserted that the recent
Sft.5 billion-dollar arms-sale to
Saudi Arabia, as well as the ap-
proach to Jordan, had not yielded
any "concessions that advance
peace in the Middle East."
The letter charged that
"Jordan remains adamant in its
rejection of the Camp David
framework as does Saudi
Arabia." Saudi Arabia, the letter
further charged, "just rejected
assurances you gave to the
Senate pertaining to the use of
the F-15s and AW ACS as well as
U.S. proposals seeking to
strengthen U.S. strategic
capabilities in the region."
In their letter, the Jewish
leaders asserted that "it is time
to redirect' our policy in the
Middle East away from the sale
of arms to unstable and unco-
operative regimes." They called
for "a reassertion of unambi-
guous support for those reliable
assies, like Israel, which have
demonstrated the sincerity of
their desire for peace by negotiat-
ing and signing treaties that have
entailed great national risk and
sacrifice, and which clearly
recognize the Soviet-inspired
threat to their own and United
States' national interests in the
The Jewish leaders also re-
ferred to President Reagan's Feb.
16 communication to Israeli
Prime Minister Begin. They
stated they were "gratified by
Reagan's "own deep personal
commitment to the security of
Israel,'' and that they were
pleased" that Reagan had "re-
affirmed America's unique bond
with Israel." and had given as-
surances of maintaining Israel's
"qualitative technological mi
tary edge in the region." **

Gov't. Has 'Open and Shut
Denaturalization Case9
A noted expert on Nazi war
criminals said here that the
federal government "has an
open and shut denatural-
ization-deportation case"
against an alleged Nazi war
criminal who has been iden-
tified by the Justice De-
partment's Office of Special
Investigations (OSI) as
Vladimir Sokolov but
whose real name, according
to Charles Allen, Jr., is
Vladimir D. Samarin.
Allen, who for some 20 years
has been investigating war
criminals living in the United
States, said that the press re-
ported a week ago that the Jus-
tice Department had filed a com-
plaint in the U.S. District Court
in New Haven, Conn, against a
former Yale University faculty
member named Vladimir
BUT WHILE the man, Allen
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, "entered the United
States in 1951 under the name
Sokolov, his wife's name, his
birth-date registry at Oriel in the
USSR shows D. Samarin as his
father." The Justice Department
filed technically under the name
he used to enter the U.S.
In research for the first Amer-
ican in-depth article on Samarin,
which appeared in the progres-
sive monthly magazine, Jewish
Currents, in November, 1976,
Allen discovered that Samarin
listed his name in the Yale Uni-
versity Directory as Sokolov-
Samarin. and used various com-
bination of those two names for
other public listings.
Samarin's name and alleged
Nazi past were first mentioned in
a February, 1976 official Soviet I
Communist Youth Journal, then
in the April, 1976 Moscow Yid-
dish monthly, "Sovietish Heim-
land," Allen said. In May, 1976,
the New York-based leftwiag
Yiddish Morning Freiheit carried
an article on Samarin.
IN SOME press reports Jan-
uary 28, Samarin (Sokolov) was
described as a former "instruc-
tor" of Russian at Yale from 1959
to 1966, and quoted Yale officials
that "they did not know the cir
cumstances under which he left''
These officials "must have very
short memories," Allen told the
"Samarin was, in fact, a Yale
lector and senior lector in Slavic
languages and literature from
1949 to 1976. He was allowed to
elect early retirement in 1976 at
the age of 63, when his Nazi put
was exposed. He was then given
what was in effect 18 months of
paid leave, through 1978."
Allen said '"Yale has never
publicly faced up to the issue, nor
fired nor dismissed him, despite
media exposure in 1976. I even
gave an extremely well-attended
lecture about Samarin at Yak
that year."
ACCORDING to some press
reports last month, the govern-
ment charged Samarin (Sokolov!
with being a Nazi propagandist,
writer and editor from December,
1942 to August, 1944. These re-
ports, including one in the JTA
Daily News Bulletin Jan. 29,
referred to the Justice Depart-
ment's charges that Samarin
(Sokolov) "advocated the anni-
hilation of all Jews and called for
the conquest of the United SUtes
and imposition of Nazi rule
throughout the world.'

Are Russians Preparing to Take Over World By Mind-Control?

munted to hard labor, and finally
in 1910 he VM able to get out of

The new Russian threat takes,
the form of mind-control. Be-
cause he himself had studied and
practiced parapsychology, he was
able to establish contact with
those who are working to provide
the Russian Government with
the enormous power which this
makes possible.
In the W est. he says, parapsy-
chology is a game played by
those who seek to establish con-
tact with spirits which have left
the earth, r ar more practical, and
dangerous, is the power it gives
to exercise control over the minds

From List of Terrorists
I(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
Iministration announces
Ithat it will no longer bar

[from buying civilian air-
labbi Howard J. Hirsch will be
presented with the Israel Bond
bavid Ben-Gurion award when
femple Beth El of West Palm
leach holds a testimonial in his
onor on Mar. 28 at the Temple.
[he Rabbi is being cited for his
ontributions to Temple Beth El,
he community, and for the work
has done in countless Jewish
eligiouw and service organiza-
craft from the U.S. even
though the two countries
are still on the list of four
nations the U.S. considers
to be supporters of interna-
tional terrorism.
However, any sale must in-
clude assurances that the planes
will not be used for military pur-
poses, State Department spokes-
man Dean Fischer said. The sale
would apply only to aircraft to be
used on "scheduled civil airlines"
in the two countries, Fischer
added. He acknowledge that the
civilian airlines in both countries
are owned by their respective
governments. At the same time,
he stressed that there are no
pending applications from either
country to purchase such planes
in the U.S.
while it eliminates controls over
such sales based on terrorism
criteria, in no way alters existing
-ontrols on such sales based on
(U.S.) national security criteria,"
Fischer said, reading a prepared
statement. The State Depart-
ment, only this week, announced
that Syria and South Yemen,
along with Libya are still on the
list of countries that aid terror-
ism. Iraq, however, was removed
from the list and replaced by
The 1979 Export Administra-
tion Act requires that the De-
partments of Commerce and
State issue a list of countries
annually which support terrorism
and therefore cannot be sold cer-
tain material and equipment. The
statement read by Fischer today
stressed that if either *Syria or
South Yemen asked to buy civil
aircraft here, the request "would
continue to be reviewed carefully
in the light of national security
criteria and, if found to be con-
trary to our national security,
would be denied."
One element that would be
considered would be assurances
that the planes not be used for
military purposes, the statement
said. Fischer said that Syria and
South Yemen have never'
diverted planes used for their
scheduled air service for military
purposes while Libya has "re-
peatedly disregarded" such as-
that the decision "does not con-
stitute either a softening of the
Administration's fight against
terrorism or a gesture toward
Syria and South Yemen. Our
concern with the support of these
two countries for international
terrorism continues unabated."
The statement added that the
decision "simply reflects" the
Administration's view that
"there is no link between interna-
tional terrorism and the sale of
civil aircraft to legitimate civil-
end users.'1
The Reagan Administration has
removed Iraq from the countries
it lists as a "supporter of interna-
tional terrorism" and replaced it
with Cuba. The other three coun-
tries on the list, required by the
Export Administration Act of
1979, remain the same Syria,
Libya and South Yemen.
The State Department said
that it and the *Department of
Commerce, in making their
annual review of which countries
"repeatedly provide support for
international terrorism," found
that Iraq's record in 1981 "did
not warrant its continued in-

However, the Department
stressed that Iraq's removal from
the list does not mean the U.S.
plans to sell arms to that coun-
try. "We have no plans to estab-
lish a military supply relation-
ship with Iraq," the Department
said. "It has been our policy since
the beginning of the Iraq-Iran
conflict not to supply military
equipment to either side."
The Department added that it
is continuing to block the sale of
General Klectric engines for
Iraq's Italian built frigates since
this could contribute to Iraq's
"war-making potential."

Dismantling of Yamit
settlements continuing
TEL AVIV Workmen,
mainly Arabs, employed by the
Jewish Agency, resumed dis-
mantling green-houses, irrigation
equipment and farm implements
at Talmei Yosef in the Yamit area
of northern Sinai Monday, under
the protection of Israeli soldiers,
Illegal squatters were removed
from the place last week.
Threatened interference by
militants opposed to Israel's
withdrawal from Sinai failed to
materialize, and no incidents
were reported. The dismantling
work, necessary to relocate the
settlement inside Israel, was
abandoned a month ago when
militants attacked the workers.
The equipment and houses are
being removed first from those
settlements closest to the inter-
national border. Israel does not
want to leave any structures on
the border line that could be oc-
cupied by the Egyptians.
No attempt has been made yet
to remove illegal squatters from
Yamit, the largest Israeli town in
Sinai. Anti-withdrawal ex-
tremists there are reportedly for-
tifying buildings for last ditch re-
sistance to troops who may try to
evict them.

Event of Year'
But French Confused by Mitterrand's Trip to Israel
President Francois Mitter-
rand's trip to Israel is
France's "event of the
year." Some claim it is the
most important develop-
ment that has happened in
France since Charles de
Gaulle resigned as Presi-
dent in 1969 and the elec-
toral victory of the Socialist
Party last May.
No other presidential visit
abroad, no royal wedding, no
summit conference with an
American President or a top-level
meeting with France's European
partners has stirred such deep
interest and aroused such pas-
sionate emotions.
LAST WEEK, for the first
time, all French weekly papers
devoted their front pages to the
visit. The center-right L'Express
called it "35 years of passion."
The leftwing Le Souiel Obserta-
teur printed its front page in
white and blue with the Hebrew
and Arabic words "Shalom" and
"Salam and a banner headlirx
"Mitterrand on a Tightrope."
The daily press, radio and tele-
vision devoted thousands of
words and hours of program time
to a review of Franco-Israeli rela-
tions from Israel's birth in 1948

to the Suez campaign in 1956 and
the subsequent souring of rela-
tions under de Gaulle and Presi-
dent Yalery Giscard d Estaing.
On the official level, at the Ely-
see Palace and at the Quai
d'Orsay. rarely has a presidential
visit abroad been so carefully
prepared. Mitterrand personally
wrote the speech he delivered in
the Knesset and also prepared his
responses to toasts, and to press
conference questions.
DOZENS OF officials, indud
ing four Cabinet Ministers and
four presidential advisers, have
been briefed for hours on Franco-
Israeli history. Middle East
problems. Mitterrand's own
stand on the Arab-Israeli conflict
and the chances for peace.
The excitement over the trip,
which was basically a state visit,
and over what most French
people consider as the "big
Franco-Israeli reconciliation."
show that the flames of the
Franco-Israel "love affair." by
now half forgotten in Israel, still
simmer in France.
But the passionate interest in
Israel and everything connected
with it. does not mean that all of
France is ardently pro-Israel.
Many French people are. but for
others Israel is a strange mixture
of love, contrition, bad conscience
and even animosity. The young
are pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian
at the same time.
FOR THE older generation,
which lived through Vichy and
often cooperated with this regime
during World War II. there is an
admiration for Israel's "Europe-
an and even Aryan" achieve-
ments. But this admiration is
tinged with a spot of anti-Semit-
ism and bad conscience, a relic of
the past.
Even within Mitterrand's
ruling Socialist Party, militants
and party leaders are torn be-
tween pro-Israel sentiments and
a sense of "justice for the Pales-
tinian people."
While international relations
are generally based on cold,
calculated pragmatic grounds.
Franco-Israeli relations are the
exception, a microcosm of human
passions and emotions. Officially,
the French stress that Mitter-
rand's trip is intended to demon-
strate his support for Israel and
to give France a more even-
handed approach in order to re-
dress the pro-Arab tilt which had
x is ted
since the days of de
Presidential aids stress
that the trip aimed at convincing
Israel that Mitterrand is "a
genuine and reliable friend."
Once this is ensured, these aides
sav. France will be able to influ-
ence Israel, without provoking
any ill-founded suspicions "that
Israel's ultimate security lies in
negotiating with the PLO and
making a deal with it providing
for the creation of a Palestinian
MITTERRAND for Israels
own sake" plans to promote, in
diplomatic terms and veiled ref-
erences, the idea of negotiations
with the Palestinians, or as the
French say in vaguer terms, "the
recognition of the other sides
Nobody in France believes that
Mitterrand will be able to con-
vince Israel of the wisdom of this
thesis and yet. most French peo-
ple, ministers, senior government
officials, and even journalists
who know Israel well and should
know better, conclude their con-
versations by stressing that "he
(Mitterrand) might succeed to
give Israel and (Premier Mena-
chemi Begin food for thought."
Mitterand needs a political
success in Israel for internal
reasons. The "paradise" pro-
mised by his party before the
election has failed to materialize.
Unemployment is on a dramatic
rise. The Franc is falling, and the
balance of payments in January
was worse than ever.
IN FOREIGN affairs. Mitter-
rand must convince the Arab
states that his support for Israel
is not contrary to their interests.
France depends more than ever
before on the Arab states for im-
ported oil and for Arab industrial
and arms contracts to maintain
employment and the stability of
the Franc.
French diplomats and Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson have
said repefedly during the last
few weeks, in all the Arab capi-
tals, that France's pro-Israel
policy and Mitterrand's trip can
best serve their own interests.
The gist of their message has
been that only friendly persua-
sion can convince Israel to nego-
tiate with the Arab states and the
Palestinians and no man is better
equipped than Mitterrand, who is
considered by the Israelis them-
selves as their best friend abroad.
Few of the Arabs have been
convinced. Only President Habib
Bourguiba of Tunisia and to a
lesser degree King Hassan of
Morocco have discreetly
welcomed Mitterrand's trip.
Even a partial Israeli response to
Mitterrand's overtures would
greatly enhance France's prestige
and interests in the Arab world.
But behind the hard political
realities, hopes and aspirations
there is another reality, equally
strong. The French are like the
Israelis, emotional people who
respond to symbols and words.
Mitterrand's trip might, after all.
turn out to be an imprt)Mi ,
moving symbol but
"Latin fiesta" than
political gesture.

Canada Okays stay
Of illegal immigrant
TORONTO A 57-year-old
Jewish woman from Yugoslavia,
who entered this country illegally
six years ago and was facing de-
portation, will be allowed to re-
main here. Giselle Confino-Levi,
who has been supporting herself
by selling flowers outside a
downtown Toronto subway
station, has been the subject of
considerable sympathy after her
plight was reported to the press.
A native of Yugoslavia, she
immigrated to Israel in 1957 and
then, with her husband, went to
Uruguay where he was subse-
quently imprisoned for political
dissent and has not been heard
from since. Immigration Minister
Lloyd Axworthy has signed a
permit allowing her and her son,
Daniel. 29, to remain in Canada.
The case will be reviewed after
one year, and if she and her son
are self-supporting and law-
abiding they will be granted
permanent residence.
Sharon insists Israel
won't invade Lebanon
fense Minister Ariel Sharon de-
nied that Israel intends to invade
Lebanon but warned that Israel
has the "natural right" to defend
its citizens.
"Israel is looking for a peaceful
solution in Lebanon," Sharon <
' said in fttn interview on ABC-TV's j
"This Week With David Brin-'
kley." "We don't have inten-
tions to invade Lebanon or to at-
tack Lebanon. Neither do we
have any intention to annex any
part of Lebanon."
Sharon admitted that Israel
has given the United States a
commitment not to move into
Lebanon unless there is a "clear
provocation" from the Palestine
Liberation Organization terrorist
forces here. Pressed for a defini-
S u "?!?V Prov said t would be "when Jews in '
Israel are killed."
But Zbigniew Brzezinski,
President Carter's National
Security Adviser, who appeared
on the same ABC program fol-
lowing the Sharon satellite inter-
view, said that he believed the Is-
raeli official was "trying to teU us
J?eK prefer? not to go in but
that they will go in." He said this
was an "ominous" development
because it was part of a "general
deterioration" in the Middle
Weinberger Reaffirms
Missiles to Jordan
Secretary Caspar Weinberger,
continued Monday to indicate his
support for providing Jordan
with Hawk mobile anti-aircraft
missiles. "In my experience .
an immobile anti-aircraft defense
is not very useful," he said in re-
sponse to questions after an ad-
dress to the National Press Club
here. "Every country that 1 know
of feels that a mobile anti-aircraft
defense is essential."
Weinberger acknowledged that
similar remarks by him while
visiting Amman last month had
stirred up Israel. While in Jor-
dan, he unsuccessfully tried to
persuade the Jordanians to can-
cel their decision to buy SAM-8
missiles from the Soviet Union.
Jordan turned to the USSR be-
cause Congress would permit the
U.S. to sell them only Hawk mis-
siles fixed in place, to prevent
those weapons from being used
against Israel.

West Germany to Decide Whether it
Should Modify its Arms Sales Policy
perts of the ruling Social
Democratic Party (SPD)
and its junior coalition
Partner, the Free Demo-
crats, will hold a special
meeting to decide whether
to support any deviation
from West Germany's long-
standing policy of not sell-
ing weapons to countries in
"areas of tension."
The government, and Chancel-
lor Helmut Schmidt, have been
pressing in recent months for a
relaxation of that rule in the case
of Saudi Arabia. While members
of both coalition parties concede
that the government alone is in
charge of arms exports, they
demand a voice in the special
consultative body on the subject.
THE DEBATE has been
prompted by the pending arms
deal with the Saudis who are in-
terested in buying the recently
updated model of Germany's
Leopard 11 tank and scores of
other weapons systems. The
Saudi government has been
negotiating for the past two
years with arms manufacturers in
West Germany. Agreements
have been reached with two pro-
ducers involving the Leopard
tanks. All that is required to con-
summate a deal is political ap-
Schmidt is said to be cam-
paigning within his own party for
a modification of the arms sales
rules. But with the coalition in
Lrouble on both domestic and for-
eign policy fronts, he is not likely
to provoke a quarrel with oppon-
ents of arms sales to the Saudis.
Meanwhile, Hans-Juergen
Wischnewski, one of the archi-
tect's of Bonn's pro-Arab
policies, has accused Premier
Menachem Ik-gin of disturbing
efforts to improve West German-
Israeli relations. Wischnewski,
an aide to the Chancellor, was
referring to Begin's attack on
Schmidt last week for having
allegedly told a Paris periodical
that he would not visit Israel un-
less Begin apologized for his per-
sonal attack last June.

Fire the Rabbi
Secretary Palm Beech County
Board of Rabbis
While visiting Manhattan this
past year. I learned that one of
my colleagues, after serving a
congregation faithfully for
several years, failed to have his-
contract renewed. His dismissal
serves to illustrate the pret -rious
situation in which a rabbi finds
himself, and the reason why
many young men shun the prac-
ticing rabbinate.
What were the reasons for the
congregational decision? A few
members said that the rabbi did
not smile enough, one said that
he had failed to make a sick call,
while some explained that "we
don't believe in keeping a rabbi
too long. We've never done it "
Involved in the decision is a dedi-
cated man with a family, a man
who chose the rabbinate as a
career out of devotion to
Too many laymen forget that
the life of the rabbi is a difficult
one. Too many feel that all of the
rabbi's activity consists of
preaching on the Sabbath and
holidays, looking in on the reli-
gious school, and visiting people
who are sick or in mourning. It is
forgotten that the rabbi must be
.n counselor a person involved ir
many serious problems of the
congregational families, an ad-
young people, a represen-
\e of the Jewish community
the outside world, a planner of
activities, in many cases a fund-
-aiser and administrator, and
above all. a teacher. The rab-
binate is a profession which, more
than others, involves the whole
family of the man who holds the
It is true that there are imper-
fections and fraihies in the
character of spiritual leaders, but
if these did not exist, the rabbi
would not be in a position to un-
derstand the imperfections and
conduct of others. It must be un-
derstood that no young man en-
ters the rabbinate with the hope
of becoming rich: that every one
who enters a rabbinical school
has a deep commitment to
Frequently, the rabbi is used
as a scapegoat for contending
groups within a congregation. In
the case referred to here there
was one group of Jews pitted
against another: one favored the
rabbi, and the other felt that they
could establish superiority by re-

There is not much inspiration
which one can gain from the
spectacle of the reoudiation of a
conscientious man who has dedi-

President Hosni Mub-

to the row that has erupted
between himself and Pre-
mier Menachem Begin over
his visit to Israel that had
been scheduled for later
this month. This was the

former press adviser, Dan

Washington academic institute,

with his research into aspects of
the Israel-Egypt peace negotia-
Speaking on Israel Radio, Pat-
tir said he would convey a mes-
sage from Mubarak privately to
the Israeli leadership and could
not divulge its contents. But he
was able to reveal that Mubarak
was much perturbed by the fact
that the discord over the visit
had become a public wrangle, and
definitely hoped it could be "re-
solved." Pattir's impression was
that the visit itself was still open.
