optimism that "I have the

comes within UN Security Coun-

"They (the Israelis) have, as I
say, pledged to me that they are
going to abide by that," he said.
In his brief remarks on the
West Hank, Reagan seemed to go
out of his way to explain the Is-
raeli position. He noted that 'Is-
rael claims" it removed some of
the West Bank mayors because
the Israelis "believe" that these
mayors "have now become part
of the more radical FLO wing."
Reagan mistakenly said the
mayors had been appointed by
Israel when actually they were
elected. Israel removed three
mayors from office on grounds
that they were agents of the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization
who incited violence on the West
Bank and because they refused to
cooperate with the civilian regime
Israel set up in the territory.

The story of the 'St. Louis'
took place in May 1939. It tells of
900 men, women and children
who boarded the ship with what
they thought was a guarantee
that they were going to escape
Germany and arrive in Cuba.
When they reached Cuba, the
government refused to accept
them. The ship traveled as far as
the shores of Miami, where the
lights of the city could be seen,
yet our own government did not
accept them. The ship forced to
turn around and eventually
landed in three different
European countries. Some of the
people on board ship sub-
sequently perished in the war.

Pro-Arab Lobby
Not Much Success in Great Britain
detailed study just released here
finds that "the pro-Arab lobby
in Britain has not achieved much
in terms of influencing British
public opinion" and that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion "has been unable to enlist a
broad-based grassroots move-
ment in the country."
The study, published here by
the Institute of Jewish Affairs,
the research arm of the World
Jewish Congress, examines 10
anti-Israel-pro-Arab organiza-
tions which are active in Britain.
Among the groups covered by
the survey are the General Union
of Palestine Students, the British
Anti-Zionist Organization, and
the council for the Advancement
of Arab-British Understanding.
THE STUDY finds that the
pro-Arab information cam-
paign is backed by large re-
sources and that increasingly so-
phisticated propaganda techni-
ques are being used. The PLO,
for example, employs polished
public relations methods to put
forth its case and has even ac-
quired the services of a profes-
sional public relations firm. "The
Main Event," to do its design
and printing as well as to advise
them on the type of materials to
In their informational activi-
ties, the pro-Arab lobby has
opted for a "soft line" as a means
of gaining recruits by promoting
"issues with which the British
public can identify, the study re-
ports. As a consequence, the ini-
tial maximalist position that Is-
rael must be replaced by a Pale-
stinian state, has given way to
efforts aimed at highlighting
positive aspects of the work of
the PLO, such as its factories,
Because "anti-Zionism is not a
mass movement in Britain, "the
study detects a strategy on the
part of the pro-Arab lobby di-
rected toward influencing policy
makers and opinion form-
ers. Even in this respect, the re-
port notes, their success has been
stance, the pro-Israel MP's or-
ganized in the various political
parties' Israel friendship groups,
outnumber avowed pro-Arab
MPs by over four to one. To date,
the pro-Arab lobby "has not suc-
ceeded in drawing any of the
major political parties or trade
unions into its camp."
The stutiy warns that it would
be false to conclude that."there
exists a monolithic pro-Arab
lobby in Britain." What the sur-
vey shows, "is that the groups
which currently promote an anti-
Israel-pro-Arab policy are very
varied in strength, motive, na-
ture and scope, and that they are
potentially dangerous far beyond
their actual size."

General in Florida, will share his

Carrington's Last Hurrah
Says PLO Must be

Lord Carrington's insis-
tence that the Palestine

must be "associated with"

jections from leaders of the
Israeli government and the
opposition Labor Party, the

served, "If we demand the right

Both Shamir and Premier
Menachem Begin, with whom
Carrington conversed at length
since his arrival here categorical-
ly rejected the British diplomat's
thesis that the PLO had to be
brought into negotiations be-
cause it is an inescapable reality
in the area.
Labor Party Chairman Shimon
Peres, who breakfasted with
Carrington. said the PLO was not
only bent on bringing disaster
upon Israel but would also bring
.disaster to the Palestinians
themselves. Peres repeated his
party's position that the Pale-
stinian issue should be negotia-
ted, with Jordan.
Begin charged that European
suport for Palestinian self-deter-
mination prejudiced the chances
for progress in the autonomy
talks between Israel. Egypt and
the U.S. "Give autonomy a
chance." Begin told the British
Foreign Secretary. Carrington
replied that the Europeans by no
means sought to impair the auto-
nomy prospects but simply
believed it would not work.
HE EXPLAINED at his press
conference that this view
stemmed from the fact that all of
Israel's neighbors, except Egypt,
oppose the autonomy scheme
Carrington insisted that the prin-
ciples of the Venice declaration
are still valid.
Israeli officials had expressed
the opinion recently that they
were as good as dead since the
ascent to power in France of
President Francois Mitterrand.
Carrington said he had read Mit-
terrand's speech "carefully, and I
saw nothing in it that con-
tradicted Venice."
While acknowledging his dif-
ferences with the Israelis, the
Foreign Secretary said he hoped
that his visit had helped "put any
misunderstandings behind us."
He stressed that Anglo-Israel
differences "should not be exag-
gerated nor should they affect
our excellent relations in so many
other fields." Israel government
officials echoed those sentiments,
saying the frank but friendly
talks with Carrington had helped
clear the air after the recent pub-
lic quarrels between the British
Foreign Secretary and Israeli lea-
ders, primarily over the Palestin
lan issue.
The cordial atmosphere of the
visit was clouded when British
sources made it known that Is-
raeli authorities obstructed at-
tempts by Carrington's top Mid-
dle East aide. Sir John Leahy, to
meet with the deposed mayors of
Nablus and Ramallah. Bassarr
Shaka and Karim Khalaf.
Agudath Israel Puts Off
'Who is Jew* Issue
The Agudat Israel, faced
by a solid wall of opposition
W Pmknemch.FL 33401
from the Labor Alignment
and some key Likud MKs,
has decided not to intro-
duce the controversial
"Who is a Jew" amend-
ment for a Knesset vote at
this time because it ap-
peared certain of defeat.
The amendment to the Law
of Return would validate
only those converts to
Judaism converted by
Orthodox rabbis.
The Aguda backed down after
its Knesset faction and lobbyists
failed to persuade seven Likud-
Liberal MSs including Deputy
Premier Simcha Ehrlich and
Energy Minister Yitzhak Berman
to abandon their declared
opposition to the measure. The
Labor Alignment, for ks part,
decided to impose party
discipline, requiring all of its
members to vote en bloc against
the amendment.
THEIR VOTES plus those of
the Shinui faction and the
Hadash (Communist) Party,
would have overwhelmed the
Likud and religious party sup-
porters of the amendment which
is personally backed by Premiei
Menachem Begin. Aguda leaders
did not take their setback with
good grace and angrily
threatened reprisals.

The general strike called
to observe Land Day was
only partially effective

high, and there were scat-

and in the Gaza Strip and

Israeli authorities said that
only nine of the 21 Arab
municipal councils in Galilee
participated in the strike called
by the hadash (Communist) Party
-md that 60 percent of the Arab
work force showed up for their
jobs in factories and service in-
dustries despite pressures to stay
away. Elementary school chil-
dren attended classes in Arab
towns and villages. Teachers also
showed up in face of disciplinary
measures threatened by the civil
service authorities. But high
school students took the day off.
THE STRIKE was most effec-
tive in Nazareth, a Communist
stronghold where most shops
were dosed, and schools were
empty. Some local merchants
said they shut down because of
threats from radicals. The strike
was observed in Arab villages
near Nazareth but hardly
noticeable in those further away,
lnsome localities. Arab youths
set up road blocks, burned tires
and stoned vehicles. A few Pales-
tinian flags were raised but were
immediately torn down by police.
About 2,500 people marched
peacefully in the Arab village of
Taibe near Kfar Saba. But in an
Arab village in Galilee, local resi-
dents stoned the police station
and were dispersed with tear gas.
Several persons were arrested.
Eight members of the strike
committee in Nazareth were ar-
rested but released later in the
day.No significant disturbances
were reported in the "mixed
cities'' such as Jaffa, Acre and
Ramie which have sizeable Arab
minorities. The Druze and Bedo-
uin communities ignored the
The most serious incidents in-

A hand grenade exploded in the

in the center of the city causing
no casualties. But several cars
were damaged. Police said the

per floors of an adjacent building.
A search was underway for the

AN EGGED bus travelling
from central Jerusalem to the

Filling in Background
Victim Brings Shamir Vow of Revenge
Yaacov Bar-Simantov, an
Israeli diplomat, was fatal-
ly shot outside his home
here last Saturday. His as-
sailant, described as a
young woman wearing a
white beret, escaped into a
subway entrance after be-
ing chased by the diplo-
mat's 17-year-old son, Avi,
who witnessed the shoot-
Bar-Simantov, 42, who was
second secretary in charge of
political affairs at the Israel Em-
bassy, died while being adminis-
tered to by a mobile intensive
care unit rushed to the scene. He
had lived in Paris about two
years on his first diplomatic as-
signment overseas.
ISRAEL'S Ambassador to
France, Meir Rosenne, de-
nounced the Palestine Liberation
Organization for "the ruthless
killing" and also blamed "coun-
tries Which extend diplomatic
recognition" to the PLO.
The shooting took place short-
ly before noon as Bar-Simantov,
his wife and eight-year-old
daughter Penina were returning
from a shopping trip to their
home on Avenue Ferdinand
Buisson in the fashoinable 16th
District near the Bois de
Boulogne. Witnesses said the as-
sailant fired five bullets into the
diplomat's head and chest.
Police said that they had a
composite picture of the killer
based on information supplied by
the victim's son. She was des-
cribed as being in her mid-twen-
ties. According to police, the
diplomat's son told them he had
almost caught up with the fleeing
assailant when she turned her
gun on him and warned,
"Another step and I shall shoot
you as well."
The murder occurred only
three days after masked men
fired automatic weapons at the
Israel Trade Mission which occu-
pies an annex to the Israel Em-
bassy here. No one was hurt in
that incident, and the gunmen
escaped in a car.
POLICE DID not immediately
link the killing of Bar-Simantov
with the attack on the Trade
Mission. But they said it paral-
leled the assassination three
months ago of an assistant mili-
tary attache at the U.S. Em-
bassy, Lt. Col. Charles Ray.
Police said the same technique
was used in both assaults.
A hitherto unknown Pales-
tinian group based in Beirut
claimed credit for killing Bar-
Simantov, saying it was an act
"of vengeance for the Zionist-Im-
perialist aggression against
south Lebanon."
Responsibility for the attack
on the Trade Mission was taken
last week by a group calling itself
the "Lebanese Armed Revolu-
tionary Factions." The same
group took credit for the murder
of Ray.
Bar-Simantov was the first Is-
raeli diplomat murdered in
France. Israeli diplomats have
been slain by Palestinian terror-
ists in other West European
PRESIDENT Francois Mit-
terrand, in a message to Presi-
dent Yitzhak Navon of Israel,
promised that France will "do all
it can" to find and bring to trial
the murderer. Ambassador
Rosenne called on all democratic
governments to "extradite to Is-
rael the killers so that they can be
tried and punished for their
deeds." He also urged "all of Is-
rael's friends to remember that
whenever they raise their hands
in favor of the PLO at the United
Nations or elsewhere, this is the
Ex-SS Officer Back on Trial
BONN (JTA) Wilhelm Westerheide, a former
SS official accused of complicity in the murders of 9,000
Jews in the Wladimir-Wolynsk ghetto in the Ukraine
during World War II, went on trial in Dortmund. Wester-
heide, 73, was acquitted by a Bielefeld court in October,
1979 after the prosecution failed to produce sufficient
evidence for conviction.
A higher court reversed that decision in July, 1960
and ordered a new trial. Westerheide was the SS officer in

Et Tu, Britain
One can leave it to Prime Minister Begin to say
what everyone else has been thinking. At a meeting
of the Israeli Cabinet the Prime Minister
had some sage words of advice for Great Britain. The
motivation behind his lesson was the presumably im-
pending war between Britain and Argentina over the
Falkland Islands.
What everyone has been thinking is about
Britain's Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, who
resigned Monday because of his "mishandling" of
events leading up to Argentina's invasion of the
Falklands. Carrington had only just returned from
Jerusalem, where he lectured Israelis on the need for
wisdom in that beleaguered country's approach to
the Israel-Arab impasse. '
What Britain has done for hundreds of years is
what its cousins in the United States have also
learned to do since the heyday of the British Empire.
When you're losing your colonial toehold, divide up
what's left of your booty between opposing forces
who, you hope, will destroy one another in the wake
of your leaving. Old European political technology
called this the principle of divide-and- conquer.
The history of the post-World War II affairs of
mankind is riddled with this kind of divvying up of
geographies and peoples with the object to weaken
them. Thus: West Germany and East Germany;
North Korea and South Korea; North Vietman and
South Vietnam; Palestine and Trans-Jordan; Pales-
tine and Israel. And now, Israel and a new Palestin-
ian state under PLO rule still to be named.
It is this entity to which Prime Minister Begin
addressed himself on Sunday. What Lord Carrington
had advised him and the Israelis to do is graciously
to give up the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and
Gaza so the Arabs can do their thing another time:
create a new Arab entity.
Said Begin: Now "we have the right to expect
our friends will better understand and will not
demand of us further that we surrender to foreign
rule parts of our homeland that are located less thai,
one mile from our capital city ."
Mitterrand No Pussy Cat,
Rothschild Warns
_ PARIS (ZINS) In an interview with the Paris cor
respondent of the Israeli daily Ha'aretz, Baron Guy de
Rothschild cautioned the Israeli government not tc
harbor any illusions of a significant change in French
policy toward the Jewish State from that followed by
President Mitterrand's predecessor, Giscard d'Estaing.
The impression, said Rothschild, that President Mitter-
rand will be friendlier towards Israel than was d'Estaing
is only an illusion. He added that even though Mitterrand
made a number of pro-Israeli declarations, during the
election campaign, he did so not because of fundamental
differences with d'Estaing on French policy in the Middle
East, but rather to win Jewish votes.
In the same way as every politician during an election
campaign, Rothschild declared that Mitterrand used
demagoguery in order to win additional support. How-
ever, he added, there is no practical difference between the
viewpoints of d'Estaing and Mitterrand so far as French
foreign policy in the Middle East is concerned. "If there
will be any discernible difference between the conduct of
the two Presidents ... it will only be in form but not in
content," Rothschild said.
Filling in Background
Involvement With Terrorism
Iraq's involvement with
terrorism in the last year
has intensified to a point
where it is now one of the
major supporters of terror-
ism in the world, it was
charged by Naphtali Lavie.
Israel's Consul General in
New York.
Lavie stated, in a paper issued
here, that Iraq's involvement in
international terrorism goes
heyond supplying arms, ammu-
nition and major financial sup-
port to terrorist organizations. It
"also takes the form of Iraqi,
'volunteers' sent to south Leba-
non to aid the Palestine Libera-
tion Oganizaton." Lavie said.
In addition, "there has been a
direct Iraqi connection in the fi-
nancing and procurement of arms
from the Soviet Union and other
East bloc countries for terrorist
organizations in the Middle
East." according to Lavie.
HE SAID Iraq has estab-
lished, within its territory, "an
organized system for fostering
terrorist activities against Israel.
Arab and Islamic countries, and
nations aligned with the West.
At the head of this system stands
the Palestine Office." which is af-
filiated with Iraq's ruling Baath
regime, and the Arab Liberation
Front, an arm of the PLO which
is "under direct authority of
Iraq "
During the last year, the Israe-
li envoy said. Iraq was directly
involved in eight terrorist at-
tacks, launched by the Iraqi-
sponsored "The Organization of
the 15th of May." against Jewish
and Israeli installation around
the world. The same group was
responsible in 1980 for three ter-
rorist attacks against Jewish and
Israeli installations. Lavie said.
In addition to the Arab Libera-
tion Front and The Organization
of the 15th of May. Iraq also sup-
ports and sponsors the terrorist
groups headed by Wadia Hadad
and Abu \idal. Lavie said. The
Abu Nidal group was responsible
for the murder in May. 1981 of
Vienna Councilman Heinz Nittel.
a friend of Israel, and for at-
tempts to organize terrorist ac-
tivities in Austria.
LAVIE ALSO said that "The
Special Command" of the Popu-
lar Front for the Liberation of
Palestine and The Organization
of the 15th of May are two fac-
tions within the group led by
"The Special Command has
been granted a permanent base in
Iraq in which it cooperates with
Iraqi intelligence, as well as the
May 15th Organization." Lavie
reported "It was granted special
permission to use Iraq as a base
from which is could conduct its
activities outside the country."
Iraq s support of terrorism has
many forms and commitments,
the Israeli envoy pointed out.
The major aspects are:
Direct involvement in the
planning and implementation of
terrorist attacks by Abu Nidal
and May 15th Organization.
Training of terrorists in Iraqi
camps prior to their participation
m terrorist attacks, including the
training of foreign terrorista who
cooperate with the PLO.
"Granting terrorist organiza-
tions the use of training camps
offices and facilities for planning
and preparing attacks abroad.
"The issuance of Iraqi travel
and identification documents to
terrorista for trips abroad.
"Providing major funds to fi-
nance terrorist activities abroad.
"Using Iraqi diplomatic
pouches for smuggling weapons
systems for terrorist organiza-
tions and storing these weapons
in Iraqi embassies.
# "Aiding terrorists in foreign
countries after an attack."
LAVIE ADDED: There are
Iraqi intelligence officers in a
section of each of the iraqi embas

tivities. Their role is considered

Austrian Foreign Policy Repot
Says Friendly Relations With An
Israel Continued Throughout lm
The Austrian government's
foreign policy report for
1981 said that the tradition
of friendly relations with
the Arab world and Israel
had continued throughout
1981. It acknowledged that
there had been differing
opinions between Austria
and Israel concerning the
question of the Palestinians
and the ways and means
towards a peaceful solution
to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The report, presented last weel
in the press by Foreign Minister
Willipad Pahr. also said that the
relations with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, which
Austria recognizes as the legiti-
mate representative of the Pales-
tinians. had not undergone any
change. On the other hand, this
do not mean that Austria has
approved everything the PLO or
its representatives have done or
said, the report added.
The Austrian foreign policy re-
port differed from a paper recent-
ly issued by the Israel Embassy
in Washington, which dealt with
PLO terrorism in Israel and
abroad. That paper held the P.

said that he found at the meeting
that Reagan is a "great and de-
voted friend to Israel."
He said Reagan is committed
to Israel's security, economy,
strength and freedom. The Chief
Rabbi said he believed these were
not just words spoken by the
President, but "I felt that this is
something deep in his heart. He
likes Israel."
GOREN SAID that one of the
reasons is that Israel is "still the
only democratic state in the Mid-
dle East. I am afraid that Israel
is a super-democracy, too much
democracy," the rabbi added.
Goren stressed the "trauma" it is
going through because of its
withdrawal from Sinai. He
specifically noted that Israel has
to destroy homes and force set-
telrs to leave an area that they
built up with their "blood" and
with their "love."
He noted that before he left Is-
rael, 15 Sinai settlers asked him
to seek support from Reagan for
them to remain in the area after
the Egyptians take over. But he
said he had not brought this up
because Israel was committed to
the withdrawal of all the settle-
ments under the peace treaty.

nomy talks, but this did not
mean a Palestinian state. He said
he told Reagan that a Palestinian
state would be "another Cuba" in
the Middle East and a threat to
the West, as well as Israel. A
Palestinian state would mean
that every city and settlement in
Israel would be under the threat
of shelling from the Palestine

Goren said that Israel would
not allow the Holy land to be
divided again as it was in 1922
when Jordan was created. He
said the autonomy being offered
the Palestinians by Israel would
give them the "right of running
their own lives" and at the same
time remaining citizens of
He said the residents of the
West Hank and Gaza Strip would
also have the right of becoming
citizens of Israel and having full
rights including the chance of be-
ing elected to the Knesset and
serving in the Cabinet.
Goren said he told Reagan that
for the Palestinian Arabs to ask
to become a separate state would
be like the Latin Americans in
New York asking for a separate
state. He said the Palestinian
Arabs are a minority and as such
will always have full rights. "We
Mill not adopt the apartheid style
nl South Africa." he asserted.
GOREN SAID that also at
Ht-gin's request he expressed the
"worry" Israelis feel over the so-
phisticated arms the United
States is selling to the Arab
states, such as AWACS to Saudi
Arabia and possibly F-16s to
Jordan. He said Israel has always
maintained its military superi-
ority over the Arabs despite be-
ing outnumbered in size and
population because of the
superiority of its spirit and
weaponry. .
Goren said Reagan responded
that by giving arms to the Arabs,
it moves them closer toward
peace negotiations with Israel
and gave as an example the role
he said Saudi Arabia played in
achieving the ceasefire across the
Israeli-Lebanese border last July.
At one point in the press con-
ference Cioren objected to the use
of the term Palestinians only in

Rabbi's Birthday
New York State Assembly, the
State Senate and Gov. Hugh
Carey proclaimed "Eighty One
Days of Education" in honor ol
the 80th birthday of Rabb:
Menachem Schneerson, tht
Lubavitcher Rebbe, last week.
The joint resolution states,
"As world Jewry is now celebrat-
ing the 80th birthday" of
Schneerson, in tribute to his
leadership, the 81 days are pro-
claimed, starting Apr. 4, corres-
ponding to Nisan 11, 5742, the
Rebbe's 80th birthday "and the
first day of his 81st year,
through June 23."
Rabbi Shmvel Butman and
Rabbi David Roskin of the
Lubavitch Youth Organization
were presented with the reso-
lution during a special reception
in the legislative office building.
Butman opened the sessions of
the Assembly and of the Senate
with prayers based on Chapter 81
of Psalms, the chapter which the
Rebbe's followers began to say on
his 80th birthday. The chapter
concludes: "And I shall feed
them (says God) honey with the
finest of wheat and sate you with
honey from the rock."

The Ten I^ost CJarts of Israel?
The Highland Scots, so the story goes, have laid claim to being
descendents of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Whether they really are or
we'll never know. But one thing we do know for sure is that the first
Jews of modern times came to Scotland in the 1600's, found it much
to their liking, and settled there.
Once established, the settlers undoubtedly discovered one of
Scotland's most famous pleasures, J&B Rare Scotch. Carefully
blended from a selection of the finest scotches, J&B has such a
smoothness and subtlety that it can truly be said to whisper. No
wonder it's become the favorite scotch here in America. Serve
J&B to your tribe, clan or mishpocha. One delightful sip will see
the stan of a tradition that will never be lost.

billion, 40 percent or about $8.8
billion of which is owed to the
U.S. He said Israel's annual debt
service to the U.S is nearing $1
billion. But Draper noted that Is-
rael has always paid its debts to
the U.S. "on time." He said that
the Israeli Defense Ministry has

months and that Defense Minis-

Committee members pressed
for more of the aid to Israel to be

Rep. Benjamin Gilman (R., N.Y.)
noted that in the current ap-

military aid grant to $550 million.

The State Department official
agreed with Solarz that the Ad-
ministration had promised Israel
additional arms after the
AW ACS were sold to the Saudis.
But Draper denied there was any
quid pro quo between the
AW ACS sale and the additional
$300 million for Israel.
Draper stressed that neither
this Administration nor any
other would ever withhold aid to
Israel as a means of pressuring
the Jewish State. He noted that
Israel is dependent on the U.S. as
the sole source of aid and this
places a "special responsibility"
on the U.S.
At the same time, he warned
Congress against cutting the
Administration's proposed allo-
cation for Israel. He said this
would lead to a traumatic situa-
tion in Israel which already is
confronted by many problems.

"miscalculation" by adversaries

But he stressed that much of
these funds are for construction
of bases.
As for Jordan, Draper said
that "on the whole we are very
pleased with Jordan's help for the

that Jordan accepts United Na-

separation of refugee issues from
other types of immigration.
Bookbinder stated that one of its
great strengths lay in its recogni-
tion that refugee rescue is a
unique sector of immigration
policy that cannot be lumped to-
gether with other kinds of admis-
sions to the United States.
On the Act's section on un-
documented workers. Bookbinder
said that "Any workable and
equitable approach to un-
documented aliens in the United
States must aim both at cutting
down on unauthorized inflow and
treating the undocumented
population now in the country in
a fair and humane manner."
He noted in particular that the
Bill's provisions for legalization
are the most generous yet in-
cluded in serious legislation on
this subject.
HE ALSO praised some of the
proposals for dealing with
asylum cases, citing in particular
the appointment of specially
trained judges for this purpose, a
new review board, and indepen-
dence of this structure from the
current Immigration and

Many constitutional experts,
however, believe that this
stipulation was intended for
minor "housekeeping" purposes.
They do not believe that it gives
Congress the authority to limit
the Court's ability to interpret
basic individual rights guaran-
teed by the Constitution. But the
bills are wrong because they are
inconsistent with the basic
constitutional plan, even if they
are technically within the power
of Congress.
6. Is hpua an issue that pits
liberals" against "con-
The issue is neither partisan
nor indeological; it is one of
principle. For example, Harvard
law professors John Hart Ely and
Laurence H. Tribe describe
themselves as differing about
every question of constitutional
philosophy, including the merits
of the Supreme Court's abortion
decisions. But both oppose at-
tempts to overturn it by a simple
act of Congress.
7. Who is supporting these
bills? Is President Reagan behind
The bills are supported by both
Democrats and Republicans who
disagree with Supreme Court
rulings on specific social issues,
and who want to overturn the
decisions without retesting them
in the courts or amending the
Constitution. Although the
Administration has not taken a
position on specific legislative
proposals, Attorney General
William French Smith has fueled
the debate by outlining his own
campaign to rein in the courts.
8. Have these bills gotten very
far in Congress?
They are gaining political
momentum in the 97th Congress.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) has
placed abortion, busing, and
school prayer bills on the Senate
calender they could be called up
for vote at any time. The Senate
continues to debate a Helms-
Johnston amendment to the
Justice Department
authorization which would bar
federal courts from ordering
busing programs to correct racial
unbalance. Hearings on the issue
of court jurisdiction have taken
place in the House before a
Judiciary subcommittee chaired
by Rep. Robert Kastenmeier (D-
Wisc.), who strongly opposes
efforts to limit the Court's
authority, and in the Senate -
before a subcommittee chaired by
Sen Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) who
generally supports legislation to
limit the courts. A Senate
subcommittee, chaired by Sen.
John East (R-N.C), who also
supports these efforts, has held
several hearings and plans
hearings on the school prayer
issue early next year. Both '
Senator Hatch and Senator East
have reported out anti-busing
bills and they now await con-
sideration by the full Judiciary
9. If these bills pass Congress,
couldn't the Supreme Court then
nde on their constitutionality?
Yes, the supreme Court could
strike them down as violating
both the constitutional provision
on which those rights are based
and the provision making the
Constitution "the supreme law of
the land." The bill attempting to
redefine "person" and "life" is
almost surely unconstitutional. .
But we should not sit back and
wait for the Supreme Court to
protect our liberties, leaving the
field to those forces which are
consciously or unconsciously
pressing legislation that would
undermine our constitutionalism.
Direct confrontations between
the courts and Congress are bad
for the country. Furthermore,
some of the bills may be
technically within the power of
Congress but are nonetheless
basically inconsistent with our
traditional American method of
protecting liberty under the
Buried in Holon
Diplomat Gunned
Down in Paris ,
Yaacov Bar-Simantov, the
Israeli diplomat gunned
down in Paris Saturday,
was buried at the Holon
cemetery Monday. About
600 mourners attended the
funeral services, among
them the French Ambassa-
dor, Marc Bonnefous.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, who delivered the
eulogy, claimed that the murder
was the work of "Palestinian
terrorist organizations which
dare to use the name liberation to
carry out murders in various
parts of the world on orders from
the center of terrorism in Leba-
will use our force to crush these
terrorist organizations, their
leaders, their centers and their
bases everywhere our long arm
reaches. We will hit them without
mercy because we have decided
to live." He said the bullets that
struck the 42-year-old Israel Em-
bassy official in Paris were
"aimed at the heart of the entire
l Israeli nation."
Shamir also urged the nations
that have allowed the Palestine
Liberation Organization to open
offices abroad "to reconsider the
aid and recognition they give this
murder organization and throw
them out of their countries."

> of the risk of abnormalities
ulting from such a procedure.
^8 Dr. Michael Thomas put it:
babies would not exist but
for the doctor's intervention, and
.though the benefit was to the
mother, the risk was to the baby.
There is also the ethical question.
Artificial insemination using
sperm ^ other than from the
woman's husband has already
raised heated opposition, not
least from the rabbinical
authorities. What new dimen-
sions are added by the fact that
in such embryo transplants, the
question of maternity as well as
paternity is in doubt?
. THESE ARE issues which re-
quire the most sober reflection.
The generation of life has long
been seen in the Jewish tradition
to be an area where there are no
easy answers. There are many
Midrashic sources which suggest
that while for every other being
in the universe, creation pro-
ceeded by a simple Divine "Let it
be," when it came to the making
of man, God too paused to take
advice from the ministering
angels. There can be no weightier
commendation to caution that
this: that even for the Creator of
the world, the making of man was
a grave responsibility.
In the other direction too: the
Talmud records that King
Hezekiah was granted the
prophetic foresight to see that'
the son he might bear Menasseh
would bring evil and suffering in-
to the world. He decided, accord-
ingly, not to have children. The
Prophet Isaiah rebuked him
savagely. "What have you to
do with the mysteries of the Al-
mighty?" any potential can be
quantified except a potential
human life.
The treatment of infertility
touches on perhaps the most
sensitive emotional motif of the
whole Torah. Sarah, Rebeccah,
Rachel and Hannah were all bar-
ren and longed for children.
Hannah was not placated by her
husband's consolation, "Am I
not better to you than ten sons?"
The Talmud attributes to her the
cri de coeur, "Lord of the
Universe, of all the hosts and
hosts that You have created in
Your world, is it so hard to give
me one son?"
RACHEL GAVE voice to the
definitive words of despair, "Give
me children, If not, let me die!"
Her husband, Jacob, was angry
that she asked for a miracle:
"Shall I take God's place?" But
rabbinic tradition did not ap-
prove his response. According to
one sage God replied, "Is that
how you answer someone who
cries out in distress?" The plight
of the infertile may never be
treated lightly.
Neither does Judaism see any-
thing threatening in the transla-
tion of miracle into scientific
technique. Isaiah in a famous
vision once said, "Sing, 0 barren
woman who could not give birth
... for many shall be the children
of the desolate." And
Maimonides commented of such
prophecies that we will not know
what they mean until they hap-
pen. If medical science has sup-
plied the reality to an expectation

of faith, that too is a fact of
positive religious significance. '
With the barest handful of excep-
tions, the rabbis did not see the
treatment of infertility as inter-
fering with the course of nature
or with the Divine decree.
But the ethical issues cannot
be avoided. The Torah itself des-
cribes one such dilemma. The
Hebrew midwives were ordered
by Pharaoh to "look upon the
birth stool" and "if it be a son,
then you shall kill him." Instead
they "feared God" and disobeyed
the instruction. R. Samuel Edels
suggests that the reference to the
"birth stool" implied that they
were told not to commit in-
fanticide but to perform abor-
tions just before birth.
fact have given themselves a
justification for going ahead.
What kind of life might such a
child expect if allowed to live?
Slavery, oppression, and perhaps
worse. Nonetheless they refused.
Again it is Dr. Thomas who has
supplied the contemporary
equivalent: "When Hitler started
the extermination campaign, he
didn't begin with the Jews. He
went for the mentally subnormal,
saying it would be much kinder
to give them a gentle, easy death.
Maybe with amniocentesis we are
trying to spare the health serv-
ices the high cost of dealing with
handicap, and cloaking it with an
air of respectability. Maybe we
are already drifting down this
road without any public debate."
Of course, there is now a new
problem. Is the destruction of
surplus test-tube embryos on a
par with abortion? On the face of
it, it is not. And even if it were,
Jewish law does not confer the
status of person upon the fetus,
and it makes a marked distinc-
tion between the taking of actual
and of potential life.
The consequence has been to
allow a considerable diversity of
rabbinic opinion on what consti-
tutes valid grounds for abortion.
Nonetheless the literature shares
certain common ground rules, in
particular that there must be
proven major need in the specific
case, and that "need" is defined
by reference to the mother, not to
the unborn child. Quite different
questions are therefore raised in
the case of an embryo not as yet
implanted in the womb. For here
the argument tends to be con-
ducted in terms of the "rights of
the unborn." And for the most
part, Jewish law finds this an un-
helpful, even a non-existent, con-
.. BUT THE problem is more ap-
parent than real. There are many
instances in Judaism of duties
towards things or beings that of
themselves have no rights. It
may be true that in the writings
relating to abortion some of the
authorities make a distinction
between before and after the first
forty day8 of pregnancy. Before
then, the Talmud calls the em-
bryo "mere liquid," not yet bear-
ing the recognizable signs of fetal
development. Others reject the
distinction: even before then, it is
still potential life. The test-tube
embryo may be still less. For
without the positive act of
plantation, it is not' yet
potential life.
Yet we could not conclude that
it is too not-yet-human to come
within the scope of morality. To
mention just two of many con-
siderations. First: Judaism
records the strongest possible
objection to hash-hatat zero, the
destruction of seed prior to fer-
tilization. This is further from be-
ing potential life even than the
test-tube embryo, yet the Talmud
says that he who does so is "as if
he shed blood." The Zohar des-
cribes him as one who "kills his
own (potential) children."
Second: there are strict rules
against inflicting pain on
animals. And as Maimonides ex-
plained, this is not a recognition
that animals have rights, but
rather a refusal to countenance
behavior that might breed indif-
ference to pain or disregard for
life. Thus, the broad psy-
chological consequences for
society of the practice of destroy-
ing or experimenting on test-tube
life would itself count as a factor
in the halachic guidelines. There
is as yet no substantial expres-
sion of rabbinic opinion on this
very recent development. But we
can expect strong reservations to
be expressed on the fertilizat'an
of more ova than are strictly
necessary for the immediate
needs of the woman undergoing
IT IS LIKELY, though, that
the technique of test-tube fer-
tilization in itself will not be op-
posed, in cases where there is no
outside donor and where the
couple have no other chance of
having children. To those who
permit artificial insemination
using sperm from the husband,
the new technique is similarly
permissible. Such, at any rate,
was the conclusion of one major
halachic authority in a recent un-
published responsum.
There is, correspondingly, a
clear consensus of opposition to
artificial insemination using
sperm from a donor other than
the husband. The new techniques
raise a further possibility: that of
an ovum taken from one woman
and after fertilization implanted
into another. Not least of the
questions to be determined in
Jewish law would be that of
maternity. Whose child is it? The
genetic mother, or the host
This kind of question had
arisen earlier this century in rela-
tion to ovarian transplants. In
general it is widely agreed that a
transplanted organ takes the
identity of the person to whom it
has been given. But is the same
true of an embryo? Strangely
enough it is just here, in relation
to a startling new development in
medical technique, that we find a
precise precedent in the ancient
rabbinic literature. A tradition is
recorded about Leah, the wife of
Jacob. She had had six sons
and Jacob's two handmaids had
two sons each when she be-
came pregnant for the seventh
time. She had known by
prophetic foresight that Jacob
would have twelve sons. Thus,
had she then given birth to a boy,
that would have left only one son
to be born to Rachel. And her
sister would then have had the
humiliation to have given birth to
fewer sons than the handmaids.
The child in Leah's womb was in
fact a boy. She prayed for it to be
a girl. And so by a miracle the
fetus was transferred to Rachel,
who eventually gave birth to it
and called him Joseph.
JOSEPH, in other words, had
Leah as his genetic mother and
Rachel as his host mother. And
he was, of course, Rachel's son.
The proof is, at it happens, not
decisive, and there are several
legal passages in the Talmud that
have a bearing on whether a
child's relationship to its mother
is determined by the moment of
conception or of birth. Two very
recent responsa discuss the ques-
tion in relation to test-tube
babies, and neither comes to a
definite conclusion. Again, we
await clarification.
It is already clear that the
questions posed by presently
possible techniques are formida-
ble. The possibility of a fetus
brought to full development
without ever having been within
the womb, and still more the
technique of cloning, will call for
reconsideration of our most basic
definitions of personhood and
parentage. The rabbis of the past
did not shrink from such ques-
tions, though they occured in a
very different context.
..THUS IN a famous respon-
sum, R. Zvi Ashkenazi was
asked, almost three hundred
years ago. about the status of
artificially created life. Could a
golem, a being in human form
created from clay and animated
by mystical technique, count aa
part of a minyan ? His answer was
ready to hand, for the Talmud it-
self had in a way already con-
sidered it. "Rabbah created a
man," it is reported, "and sent
him to R. Zera. R. Zera spoke to
him, but received no answer. So
he said to him: You must be a
creation of the magicians. Return
to your dust."

compunction, turned the golem

In Sharp Contrast
Anti-Semitic Acts Down in Philadelphia
In sharp contrast to Jewish
communities generally through-
out the United States and
Canada, which have reported a
growing number of anti-Semitic
acts against synagogues and
other Jewish institutions, syna-
gogues in the Greater Philadel-
phia area have reported a 30 per-
cent decrease in the number of
such incidents between 1980 and

back to dust, it must follow that
such artificially created life has
no status. R. Zvi's nsponsum is
interesting not only in un-
characteristic willingness to find
a halachic answer to a seemingly
remote question, but also for its
o6ifer dictum that taking a life
applies only to "something
formed as a foetus in a mother's
womb." Would a foetus brought
to full maturity in a laboratory
thus be no more than a golem t
One recent writer in a medical
journal wrote, "In an increasing-
ly godless society, we find tech-
nology pushing us into areas
where there are ne rules to break
and no principles to guide us."
Despite the fact that the re-
sources of the halacha will be
strained to the limit, the rabbinic
literature has an unbroken tradi-
tion stretching back over two
thousand years in which every
ethical issue. common or
recherche, was subjected to the
most minute analysis, against
the constant background of faith
that a single human life was as
precious as a universe and as holy
as the image of God. One thing is
certain. That the vigilance of the
halacha will not allow medical
science to march on without rules
to keep and principles by which
to be guided.
lased on 61 synagogues report-
jig. The survey for 1981 was
lased on 57 synagogues report-
ing, the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency was told.
Smukler said the JCRC sur-
veys revealed some increase in
vandalism of synagogues report-
ing from the Philadelphia North-
east area, but that area followed
the trend in the rest of the city by
showing a drop in thefts between
1980 and 1981.
SMUKLER SAID the overall
decrease in theft and vandalism
could be attributed "to a great
extent" to security measures
taken by many local synagogues
which had been proposed last
March at a special program on
synagogue and institutional
security sponsored by the JCRC
and the Philadelphia Board of
He said improvements in out-
door lighting systems, in par-
ticular, "have proven to be an ef-
fective' deterrent against institu-
tional vandalism." Other major
steps taken included the installa-
tion of additional locks, alarm
systems and safes.
Smukler expressed concern
that a lower percentage of syna-
gogues in the Northeast area had
taken security measures than did
other local synagogues, noting
that Northeast synagogues con-
stituted a quarter of those re-
porting in each survey.
Rabbi Gerald Wolpe of Har
Zion Temple, Board of Rabbis
president, said the "dramatic de-
crease" in vandalism of syna-
gogues, "shows how successful a
program can be when the com-
munity comes together to solve a

average, two-thirds of all syna-
gogues in the area responded to
the JCRC surveys. The per-
centage of synagogues reporting
acts of vandalism and theft
showed the following declines be-
tween 1980 and 1981.
Thefts of ritual silver: 25 per-
cent in 1980 and nine percent in
1981: other thefts: 13 percent in-
1980 and nine percent in 1981;
acts of vandalism, including anti-
Semitic graffiti: 26 percent in
1980 and 14 percent in 1981.
Smukler said no incidents were
reported by 46 percent of the
synagogues in 1980 and by 67
percent during 1981.
The program on security was
arranged as a reaction to in-
creases in thefts and vandalism
at local houses of worship in
1980. The program included a
seminar featuring representa-
tives from the city government,
the insurance and security in-
dustries, the Philadelphia police
department, and distribution of a
