Marie's Story: The Other Side of the Fence
UJA Staff Correspondent
METULLA, Israel Metulla
could be a hilltop village in
Switzerland. The green valley.
The sun-warmed scene of apples
from foothill orchards. The red
rooftops on the gracious homes
lining the main street, looking
like chalets. Small hotels and
pensions, in the European man-
ner, for tourists and vacationers.
Over all, a sense of abiding
peace .
The illusion passes. Metulla is
a border town in Israel's embat-
tween Syria and Lebanon. Point-
ing to a cross-hatched wiring,
unique to boundaries that divide
nation from nation, this one
the Good Fence beckons and
invites And this is the story
of Marie, who walks through its
gateway every morning into Is-
rael and walks back again every
Marie lives on the other side of
the fence, in Lebanon. For eight
years, since the Lebanese Civil
War in 1974-75, her Arab Chris-
tian village was a tragic mirror
image of Metulla, shelled con-
tied north, a slender fingertip be- stantly by PLO katuyshas. But
Terrorist Attacks
with no army to retaliate or pro-
tect the people or minimize ter-
rorist raids, men and boys dis-
appeared, women were raped,
houses were plundered .
Even here, on the other side of
the fence, sitting in an office she
cleans even now, when the
siege of terror has been lifted
the memories continue to haunt
her. They come out jaggedly,
rapid Arabic translated stolidly
into English. My photographer
catches every expression in
Marie's eyes. Proud. Hurt.
"Eight years ago," she says,
25 Dead in Europe Over 2-Year Period
wave of terroristic attacks
aimed at Jews and Israelis
in Western Europe has
killed at least 25 persons
and wounded 373 others
during the past two years,
according to a survey re-
leased by the Anti-Defama-
tion League of B'nai B'rith.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's
associate national director and
head of its International Affairs
Division, said the recent
machine-gunning of Rome's cen-
tral synagogue in which a two-
year-old Jewish boy died was
the 73rd separate incident re-
ported in Western Europe since
September, 1980.
The League's survey, con-
ducted by ADL's European office
based in Paris, tabulated inci-
dents involving firearms, other
weapons or bombs, or desecra-
tions of Jewish property. Not all
of the victims, the ADL official
noted, were Jewish.
THE FINDINGS were made
public at a session of the
League's National Executive
Committee at Houston's Westin
Galleria Hotel.
"West European govern-
ments," Foxman said, "must be
blamed, in part, for helping
create a climate for anti-Semitic
terror by allowing Palestine
Liberation Organization repre-
sentatives to operate on their
He pointed out that, according
to the survey, the four nations
with the highest totals of anti-
Jewish or anti-Israel incidents
were those which have been most
supportive of the PLO.
France, with 29 incidents, in-
cluding the Rue Copernic syna-
gogue bombing of October, 1980
(which killed four persons), had
the highest number, the survey
reported. Twelve incidents were
recorded in Italy, 11 in Austria,
five in Greece, four each in Ger-
many and Great Britain, two
each in Belgium and Ireland and
one each in Cyprus, Denmark,
Holland and Switzerland.
IN ONLY one of the terror in-
cidents the August, 1981
machine gun attack against a
Vienna synagogue, in which two
persons died and 19 were
wounded were the perpe-
trators apprehended, Foxman
pointed out.
PLO operatives or sympa-
thizers, he went on, were believed
responsible for most of the at-
tacks. "Unfortunately there has
been a tendency on the part of
West European law enforcement
authorities to view anti-Semitic
terror as part of the Arab-Israeli
conflict and, in effect, extra-
territorial. This has weakened in-
vestigative efforts."
Foxman noted that a common
thread in many of the anti-Semi-
tic attacks was identical
weaponry, such as the Polish
WZ-63 machine pistol which was
used in the Aug. 9, 1982 attack
on a French restaurant in which
six persons were killed and 22
others injured. Another weapon
used in many attacks was the So-
viet or Czech-made "Banana"

"ceremonies" in which they have
transferred arms employed in
their assaults from one group to
another to show their solidarity
and defiance of authorities.
"Until West European
authorities view these outrages
as domestic affairs, directed

terror may reach a point where
nobody in Western Europe can
feel really secure," Foxman said.
"I came to the Good Fence. I
came to the Israelis for help.
Blood all over me, cut up from
shrapnel from the terrorists. The
Israelis took me to their hospital,
they took care of me."
She gets up from her chair,
comes to stand directly in front of
me, a 63-year-old woman, solid of
body. She has borne four chil-
dren, two sons and two daugh-
ters. She has grandchildren. She
lifts the hem of her simple black
dress to show me, woman to
woman, the shrapnel scars on her
legs and thighs, then pushes at
her sleeves to expose the bum
marks on her arms.
"They did that. The PLO. If
the Israelis didn't stop them,
they might have killed us all. For
eight years, we were suffering all
the time. Their bomb ruined .our
house. We were in the shelter. My
husband'8 brother was hit, and
afterwards they had to amputate
his legs. It was a nightmare."
Marie smoothes the hem of her
skirt, sits down again opposite
me. As she talks, she twists a bit
of grey cleaning rag in her hands,
then spreads it out flat and
presses it down hard on her lap,
as if to push the painful memories
"We had no money," she goes
on. "Our land was there, but we
couldn't work it. The PLO
wouldn't let us. How could we
live? How could we eat? We came

Not Suffer Unusual Hardships
"Despite the problems that
problems that beset our na-
tion, our Jewish communi-
ty does not suffer extra
hardship," averred Shmuel
Tenenblatt, the youngish,
pleasant-faced editor of the
Folks-Sztyme, a Jewish
newspaper that has been
published here week in and
week out through the years.
"The attitude of the govern-
ment toward our Jewish people is
quite benevolent and positive,"
Tenenblatt claimed. Indeed, gov-
ernment policies appear to be
most constructive in a literal
sense. Governmental agencies,
including the Historical Land-
mark Commission, are busy re-
constructing the large Nossek
Synagogue, located in the former
ghetto, and destroyed by the
Nazis on May 17, 1943. They are
also restoring the Jewish
Historical Institute, which was
left in a shambles under prior

equipped building in the center of

Despite the lack of formal rela-
tions between the governments of
Poland and Israel, the Hebrew
language may be studied at the
University of Warsaw. Cultural
and other educational ties bet-
ween the two countries are
quietly fostered.
It seems apparent that the
Polish government seeks Jewish
approbation, and various depart-
ments, including ORBIS, the
Polish National Tourist Agency,
are making all kinds of plans in
anticipation of April 9, 1983
the 40th anniversary of the
Warsaw Ghetto uprising when

there are only some 10,000 or

since the younger Jews emi-
grated in 1968-69 during the era
of Wladyslaw Gomulka when a
campaign was waged against
"Zionists" and "revisionists."
Tenenblatt felt there were act-
ually a somewhat larger number
of Jews in the country, but that
many preferred to live without
Jewish identity. "It's so
strange," he told this reporter,
"to see so many people whom one
would not have thought to be

HE ESTIMATED that there
were 3,000 Jews in Warsaw,

rest in Lodz, Stettin, Wroclaw,

towns, Jews come together under
the auspices of the Kultur
Gesellschaftliche Verband to
enjoy an accasional evening of
Yiddish and Israel interest.
Tenenblatt insisted that his
Folks-Sztyme was the leading
unifying cultural force among
Jews. With a staff of 15, he turns
out a large-format, well-
illustrated paper with nine pages
in Yiddish including a regular
column entitled "Jews in the

Participants in the Gathering
had previously visited Lebanon I
and met with Lebanese civilians
in a series of frank and open dis-
cussions. They saw the cities of
Tyre, Sidon and Nabatiya being
reconstructed by residents who
had returned after years of PLO
enforced exile, viewed the cap-
tured Beaufort Castle, from
which PLO artillery fire had
raked northern Israel, and visited
Israel Defense Forces installa-
tions for dialogues with high
ranking spokesmen and front line
. soldiers.
American Jewish leaders were
greeted by Israel's President
Yitzhak Navon, with the words,
"You make our hearts warm by
being here," and were briefed on
a wide range of issues affecting
Israeli life by Deputy Prime
Minister David Levy, Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon, Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor, Oppo-
sition Leader Shimon Peres,
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek,
Jewish Agency Chairman Aryeh

Philip Wm. Fisher: "After my
pre-mission trip to Prague,
meeting 1,200 American Jews in
Modi'in was an experience I will
never forget. It is apparent to all
of us that our brothers and sis-
ters in Israel need our presence as
much as they need our money. It
was surprising to me that many
Israelis are not aware of what the
Jewish Federations do and I feel
this was a good opportunity to
share that information." .
Sue Ochatein: "I felt that the
people in Lebanon were very hap-
py to see us. This was a greet
contrast to the people of Israel
who appeared depressed due to
the losses they have sustained
during the recent war. I think the
highlight of my trip was the
home hospitality. The family
took us to a bomb shelter and I
thought it was quite an ex-
perience to see what these people
went through for the several
years that their town had been
bombarded by rockets."
Larry Ochatein: "The march
with our Project Renewal com-
munity was really the highlight
of this mission It is unfortunate
that the war came when it did as

neighborhood Had Hasheron,

Julie Cummings: "It was a
very tense, emotional and in-
formative trip for me and I was
amazed that we could fit as much
as we did into the amount of time
that we had. We built strong
friendships and I really felt very
much a part of the Jewish
community. I had never been
around 1,200 Jews from all over
the United States, and it was
wonderful to see that they were
all there for the same cause.
Amy Deroven: "I did not know
what to expect from the mission
or from Israel. I enjoyed the ex-
perience very much and it wasta
wonderful opportunity to learn
about my heritage."
Douglas Kleiner: "The high-
light of the mission for me was
the trip to Beaufort Castle. It
was incredible to stand upon that
hill and look down into Israel and
realize how many people were
killed by rockets that were
launched from this vantage
point. Capturing Beaufort Castle
was on a par with taking the
Golan Heights in 1967."
Marva Perrin: "What I felt on
this mission was a real sense of
brotherhood with the people of
Israel and a good feeling of
sharing our common concerns.
The Israelis are protecting a
homeland for all of us and it was
important for us to give our dol-
lars as well as our moral sup-
Berenice Rogers: "I found this
particular mission (and this
would be my 14th) to be the most
exhilirating and rewarding ex-
perience I have had thus far when
visiting Israel. The logistics of.
moving 1,200 people throughout
the country and into Lebanon
beggared the imagination. From
my impressions of my very in-
teresting visits, along with my
bus trip into Lebanon, and listen-
ing to the very astute public rela-
tions officer of the Israeli army, I
deduced that one does not do.
business with gangsters. The dif-
ference of opinion among Jews of
the Diaspora would be one of
unity if they could make the trip

Israel Seen Emerging
As Protector Of
Palestinians in Lebanon
Israel appeared to be
emerging as the protector
of Palestinian refugees in
south Lebanon against ef-
forts by the Lebanese gov-
ernment to get rid of them.
Economics Minister Yaaov
Meridor has told the
Knesset that Israel would
see to it that the refugees
have adequate shelter this
winter, regardless of oppos-
ition from the Lebanese
He said Israel was encouraging
the refugees to accept tents pro-
vided by the United Nations Re-
lief and Works Agency and would
help them build more permanent
structures if they wished. These
would replace the structures des-
troyed in the Lebanese war last
summer. The Lebanese govern-
ment is demolishing refugee
houses in the Beirut areas on
grounds they were built illegally.
that the Israeli army would pro-
tect the refugees from Lebanese
moves against them as long as
the army remains in Lebanon. He
said he had met with a top Leba-
nese "personality" last July who
Curfew Imposed on Refugee Camp
After Stone-Throwing Incident
TEL AVIV (JTA) A curfew was imposed on the
Balate refugee camp on the West Bank after several stone
throwing incidents by Arab youths against Israeli army
and civilian vehicles. The incidents were sparked by the
fatal shooting of an Arab teen-ager by an Israeli civilian
The Balate camp is located between Hebron and Beth-
lehem, south of Jerusalem.
Other stone-throwing incidents were reported through-
out the West Bank in connection with the 40th day of
mourning for the victims of the refugee camp massacres in
west Beirut last month. Armed escorts in civilian vehicles
fired into the air on several occasions to disperse youthful

Residents of the Ein Hilwe
refugee camp near Sidon burned
down the first UNRWA tents,
demanding permanent shelters.
They stoned UNRWA workers

man for the agency said work

charges by the Labor Alignment
that the government had failed to
act last summer to provide the
homeless refugees with shelter
before the winter cold set in.

MERIDOR'S solicitude to-
ward the. refugees was seen by
some observers as an effort to
undo the damage caused earlier
this year by his alleged comment
that the Palestinians should be
"pushed eastward." In the
Knesset the minister accused
UNRWA of tardiness in erecting
the tents.

Western Hendez-Vous' May Become Another Munich
No doubt about it: Munich is just around
the corner. This time, it is the Israelis who
are being sacrificed. Or so we think, just as
at Munich it was thought that nothing
would be lost beyond Czechoslovakia itself.
This time, it is the West in the Middle
East, preparing its own rendez-vous with
destiny by turning a cold shoulder to its
once presumably-prized fledglings in Tel
The Europeans are skilled at that sort of
thing. They have a long history, thousands
of years of it, that has given them the
capacity to betray others, only to find they
have betrayed themselves, but never
learning a lesson from their propensity for
self-destructive folly.
But we Americans are less skilled. And
so the finesse of our betrayal of Israel is far
more crude not that the results will be
any different.
What motivated us in the beginning in
this enterprise was a naive morality
spawned in the duplicitous maw of the
world's media: Israel in Lebanon was
dastardly, and so needed punishment.
But now it is something else. Now, it is
the pressure of the depression that
motivates our law-makers on Capitol Hill
to make things more difficult in the days
and years ahead for Israel as it seeks future
military appropriations in Congress.
Men like Congressmen Steven Solarz
(D., N.Y.) and John LeBoutillier (R., N.Y.)
cross party lines to express their fears in
this regard. The question is just whom do
these solons who worry Solarz and LeBou-
tillier think they will be punishing?
Of course, Israel. But that is just the
beginning. The duplicitous media in then-
mendacity do not, for example, tell the
whole story: what the Israeli operation in
Lebanon has in fact wrought so far as
freedom in Lebanon itself is concerned, let
alone what the Israelis have achieved in
humbling the Soviet Union and its terrorist
clients, the PLO. Nor do they tell the story
of what benefit has accrued to the U.S. in
the area of intelligence as a consequence of
the Israeli operation.
Yet, because of the depression, warn
friends of Israel on Capitol Hill, the future
seems bleak. Solarz said the other day
before a gathering of Conservative Jewish
spiritual leaders and laymen: "During the
past year, there has been a significant
erosion for Israel both around the country
and in the Congress."
"There is going to be a real bad time
coming in America and in Congress; I can
feel it in my stomach," warns LeBoutillier.
"Too many of my colleagues are less
concerned about Israel" these days.
And so, the fat's in the fire for a barbecue
of Israeli interests. The hosts are
Treaty Turning Sour
Not even the most pessimistic observer
could have anticipated that the Israeli
peace treaty with Egypt would go sour so
quickly. But there is evidence of this all
over the place. From the beginning, it was
clear that the treaty, based on the virtually
unconditional return of the Sinai to the
Cairenes, was little more than an exercise in
diplomacy. It could not last, especially
when that prince of peace, Anwar Sadat
himself, began dragging his heels once the
first hunks of the Sinai came back to him.
Now, under Mubarak, what Sadat
wrought, his successor exalts as a signal to
the Arab world that the shotgun marriage
with Israel is over.
Example: Our correspondent in Cairo,
Judith Kohn, reports that the Egyptian
press these days is, if our readers will par-
don the pun, irrepressible in all matters
Israeli. The other day, reporting the Israeli
inquiry into the Sabra and Shatila mass
acres, the Egyptian daily, Al-Ahram said
of it that "the accused is cross-examinintr
itself." And, speaking of Prime Minister
Begin, a cartoon shows the Prime Minister
carrying a poster that reads: "Speakim?to
the world, the Israeli leader asks, 'Are you
Example: Last week referring to the
peace treaty, Egypt's Foreign Minister
Kamal Hassan Aii called it "a strategic
choice," which is to say, not a commitment
but a diplomatic tactic. '
And so, the tatters show so much more
dramatically in November than anyone
would have imagined last April, when the
last of the settlers in the Sinai at Yamit had
to be forced out of their settlements by
Israeli troops.
What can we expect, say, New Year's
Christian Embassy Hits Taryet
Embassy in Jerusalem is saying
some important things these
days to which Western leaders
and Christians generally ought to
pay careful attention. Jan van
der Hoeven, spokesman for the
Embassy, issued a statement the
other week that gets to the very
heart of the war in Lebanon.
Says Van der Hoeven: "Be-
hind all the misleading headlines
and conflicting political argu-
ments, a force is at work that
Christians, sooner or later, will
have to reckon with Islam .
"The war against Israel, first
and foremost, is a religious war
being waged by the spiritual
principality of Islam. This same
force is also actively at work
against Christians in Lebanon.
Islam wars against the Jewish
sovereign state and also against
the only democracy in the Arab
world that has a strong Christian
presence. Through Syria and the
PLO occupation, Islam at-
tempted to gain a permanent
stronghold in Lebanon."
IN FACT, Van der Hoeven re-
minds us, the jihad cry of the
Arabs in the 1967 Six-Day War
was, "We will kill the Saturday
people and then the Sunday peo-
ple." This means that the war
against Israel is in reality the
first stage in an ultimate war
against Christianity itself.
Furthermore, not even Chris-
tian Arabs themselves fully real-
ize either the true spiritual or po-
litical purpose of the Arab
sheikhs. They tend, says Vad der
Hoeven, "to react more often as
Arab nationalists than as Chris-
So many Christian Lebanese,
for example, tend today to forget
the horror of their persecution at
the hands of the Palestine
Liberation Organization. Now
that they have been liberated by
the Israeli operation in Lebanon,
they are more vocal about an Is-
raeli withdrawal than about the
withdrawal of either the PLO or
the Syrians on the ground that
the latter two are, after all, Arab.
BUT SYRIA'S President
Assad is a Muscovite client. And
there is little doubt that the PLO
in its highest echelons is more
Marxist than Moslem, but it
manipulates Moslem anti-Jewish
and anti-Christian sentiment in
its own cause.
Neither for the Syrians nor for
the PLO is pan-Arabism as com-
pelling an issue as Communism.
And so, Van der Hoeven argues,
Christians generally and Chris-
tian Arabs specifically are falling
right into the PLO propaganda
trap, Lebanon s President Amin
Gemayel included.
Does this mean that Van der
Hoeven and the Christian Em-
bassy in Jerusalem have no ax of
their own to grind? Hardly. Their
support of Israel is as conditional
as is the support of any American
fundamentalist preacher's.
The Van der Hoeven state-
ment, for example, sees the Leba-
nese war, indeed the whole Jew-
ish return to Israel as a sovereign
state, in terms of biblical pro-
phecy and hence in support of the.
New Testament view.
"PEOPLE GET irked," he
says, "at the suggestion that
God's justice and judgment have
something to do with this Israeli
action (the war in Lebanon).
Even many Christians do not see
. Although He abhors war,
God has nevertheless furthered
His purposes throughout history
by means of war. He judged His
own nation Israel by means of the
sword, and used the same sword
to help His chosen nation over-
come its enemies in times of favor
and obedience. Such a time has
come now."
I can not speak for God as
easily as Van der Hoeven does.
And so he has no problem in add-
ing the usual Christian reference
to Isaiah translated to suit Chris-
tian ideology: "Isaiah 29 prophe-
sies that Lebanon will become a
'fruitful field' and a blessing to
the whole Middle East through
renewed evangelical outreach .
No wonder the powers of evil are
trying to bring everything
against this glorious plan of
God! May we not be so fool-
ish as to rely on the media more
than on the revealed Word and
purposes of God, lest we find our-
selves one day lined up against
the very One in who (sic) we said
And if the Jews are finally
back in Israel, let us never forget
why they were not in Israel for
the preceding 2,000 years: "Be-
cause of disobedience, Israel was
dispersed and the nations allowed
to occupy the Land for a time
But always there was the promise
of return, and we have seen this
miracle occur in our own lifetime.
How can Christians be so dis-
honest as to deny the clear Word
of God in this matter?"
BUT THESE theological con-
structs apart, quaint and
curiouser than the Mad Hatter,
Van der Hoeven asks pertinent
questions and makes telling
points. His reference to the grow-
ing dependence upon the media
for information combines the two
in a powerful condemnation:
"The media made things worse
(in Lebanon). Pictures of Israeli
actions in Lebanon have been
one-sided: Where were the
journalists when the PLO des-
troyed Damour in 1976, killing
thousands of Christians? Where
were they when Lebanese Chris-
tians held thanksgiving services
for the liberation that came
through Israel? Where were the
cameras when cheering Lebanese
greeted Israeli forces along their
way to Beirut?"
And, by contrast between Ia-
rael in Lebanon and the actions of
other countries and military
forces elsewhere, Van der Hoeven
wonders just "how 'monstrous'
were the Israelis" in fact. "Dur-
ing World War II," he recall*,
"the Allied Forces did not merely
target the SS command centers
and apartment buildings used
and lived in by the Nazis. They
flattened entirt German cities.
But Israel's pilots were in-
structed to target PLO centers
"THE ALLIED Army did not
bother to drop leaflets over
Dresden, Hamburg and other
German cities before they
bombed their civilian populations

Since the Begin government
yielded to demands within Israel
and abroad that a full investiga-
tion be undertaken, commen-
tators and editors here have con-
tinued to call for an international
inquiry and have greeted the
hearings now underway in Israel
with derision.
"The farcical thing about the

writing in the semi-officialnews

cused is cross-examining him-
The editorial sentiment here
can be summed up in a cartoon
that appeared in the same paper
last week. In it Prime Minister
Menachem Begin is shown carry-
ing a poster that reads, "Down

world, the Israeli leader asks
"Are you pleased?"
Arens Rapped For
Suggesting Freeze
JERUSALEM Israel's Am-
bassador to the U.S., Moshe
Arens, came under heavy fire in
the Cabinet for allegedly having
suggested to Premier Menachem
Begin that Israel suspend the es-
tablishment of new settlements
on the West Bank for a six-month
According to a Voice of Israel
Radio report, Arens made that
proposal about six weeks ago. He
said Israel should announce sus-
pension of further settlements for
six months and that Begin
should invite King Hussein of
Jordan to the negotiating table.
The radio report said Arena sug-
gested that such moves would
improve relations between Israel
and the U.S.

According to the report, Begin
responded briefly, saying that

talks with Israel, and Israel
would end up committed to the
suspension of settlements.
POWs Must Return
Before Israeli Exit
JERUSALEM Israel con-
tinues to insist that Syria must
return Israeli soldiers captured
during the war in Lebanon before
there can be any settlement for
the evacuation of the Israel De-
fense Force from Lebanon.
Premier Menachem Begin
made this clear in his meeting
here last Friday with Morris
Draper, Deputy Assistant Secre-
tary of State for Near Eastern
and South Asian Affairs, who is a
special U.S. envoy for negotia-
tions on Lebanon. Syria has so
far rejected all appeals by Israel
for information about the fate of
the three Israeli POWs.
Draper told Begin and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir that
Syria has also ignored his appeals
on the POWs and that it also has
prevented International Red
Cross Committee representatives
from visiting the soldiers. Draper
was in Beirut prior to his visit to
Jerusalem. According to reports
from the Lebanese capital,
government officials there and
Draper had formulated the basis
of future talks on the withdrawal
of the Israeli, Syrian and PLO
forces from Lebanon.
Medicare-eligible persons (those

Senate Committee on Aging and
a principal force behind Senate
passage of the legislation, said
"This is a major legislative land-
mark in humanizing health care

strated that the cost-savings to

amounting to billions of dollars in
a short period of time, among
other reasons.

Because Someone Cared
Childrens Programs
A personal view from the
Executive Director of the Jewish
Family A Children's Service
(All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious; client
information at Jewish Family A
Children's Service is held in the
strictest of confidence).
In my last article I touched
upon the value and utility of
marriage contracting, as advo-
cated by Dr. Clifford Sager. I
described a couple who came to
the JF & CS offices in the throes
of a marital rift, and who were
helped by considering the possi-
bility of writing out a marriage
One of the more fascinating
aspects of Dr. Sager's research
involves his categorization of the
underlying "expectations of the
marriage." How many of you
have ever stopped to consider
just exactly what you expect out
of marriage? According to Dr.
Sager, at least 16 common areas
of initial expectation may
emerge. Consider the following
expectations to see how closely
they match those which you may
have thought of at one time or
another, if you are married:
1. A mate who will be loyal,
devoted, loving and exclusive, of-
fering the kind of relationship
with a person that one may have
hoped for as a child, but did not
receive, or had and lost. Someone
with whom to grow and develop.
2. A constant support against
the rest of the world. Stands by
during the loss of job, an en-
counter with the law, or physical
or mental illness.
3. Companionship and in-
surance against loneliness.
4. Sanctioned and readily
Stephen Levitt
available sex.
5. Creation of a family and the
experience of reproducing and
participating in the growth and
development of children.
6. An economic unit.
7. A respectable cover for ag-
gressive drives. Competetive and
hostile characteristics may be
neutralized to channel into con-
structive avenues through mar-
There are many expectations
which people have of marriage,
and all of them are legitimate in
their own right. The problem that
surfaces is adjusting the expecta-
tions of one to the other, in terms
of the underlying marriage con-
tract. Although couples are con-
stantly engaging in the process of
negotiating and modifying each
other's expectations, sometimes
power plays emerge and one
party is not willing to give to
another. This may be referred to
intransigeance. At such points a
third party or neutral counsellor
may be sought, not so much to
"referee" an ongoing dispute, but
rather for the more valuable and
useful purpose of getting each
marital partner in touch with his
or her underlying feelings of hos-

Filling in Background
El Al Workers Swarmed Over Airport...
Thousands of El Al em-
ployees and their families
forced Ben Gurion Airport
to shut down last week
when they swarmed
through the terminal build-
ings, workshops and
hangars and blocked the
runways with aircraft and
buses which could not be
moved because the air had
been let out of their tires.
All incoming air traffic was
diverted to a military air-
field in the Negev.
The non-violent but determin-
ed blockage of Israel's only inter-
national airport was the El A)
workers' response to the govern-
ment's decision to liquidate the
airline unless its employes agree
to far-reaching concessions in
labor-management relations.
Economics Minister Yaacov
Meridor called it "pure
Histadrut Secretary General
Yeruham Meshel said that while
the deplored the workers' tactics,
they had been "pushed into a
corner" by the contradictory
statements of government
spokesmen with respect to El
Al s future and their jobs.
THE AIRPORT resembled a
state fair. El Al workers, accom-
.. .And Stormed Headquarters
To Barricade and Burn
Scores of El Al employees
stormed the company's
headquarters at Ben
Gurion Airport last week,
accusing the airline's
management and the gov-
ernment of refusing to
negotiate with them in
good faith on the future of
the airline. Barricades of
burning tires blocked roads
approaching the airport,
creating traffic chaos.
A number of protestors broke
into the fourth floor offices of the
El Al president and board
chairman. Noisy arguments
ensued, but there was no
violence, and the management
decided not to call the doIW \
spokesman for the workers said
they would call a strike of those
El Al employes who were not sent
on forced furloughs when the
management suspended opera-
tions six weeks ago.
A STRIKE would involve
mainly ground hostesses for El
Al ticket holders transferred to
chartered foreign planes and
drivers of El Al buses who
transport the passengers of all
airlines to and from the airport.
The El Al board of directors
has scheduled a shareholders
meeting for Nov. 17 to take the
final step toward voluntary
But that would only be a
formality inasmuch as the
government holds 98 percent of
El Al shares. The balance are
held by Histadrut and by Zim.
Syria Replaces Destroyed Tanks
TEL AVIV (JTA) Syria has replaced the 400
tanks destroyed by Israel and the 200 captured during the
war in Lebanon from reserve tanks they had held in
emergency stores, according to Maj. Gen. Moshe Bar-
Kochba, commander of the armored corps.
panied by their wives and chil-
dren, some of them in prams,
strolled along the runways
dodging careening fire engines,
tractors and oil tank trucks. Chil-
dren played on the escalators
inside the terminal building.
Emergency evacuation chutes
were dropped out of aircraft
doors and used by youngsters as
sliding ponds while their parents
sat on the aircraft wings.
But the carnival atmosphere
masked the calculated sabotage
of vital equipment which may
keep Ben Gurion Airport immo-
bilized for several days. Workers
dismantled runway landing
lights and deflated the tires of
three jumbo jets and several
smaller 707 aircraft which had
been taxied auto the runways.
According to some reports,
fluid was bled from some aircraft
hydraulic systems. Extensive
maintenance work will have to be
done before the planes can be
returned to service.
THE POLICE seemed to be
helpless, apparently because of
the large numbers of women and
children. The situation was far
worse than the day before when
the workers blocked the airport
approaches with barriers of burn-
ing tires. That kept the
passengers of all airlines from
reaching their flights. The action
grounded El Al cargo flights, the
only branch of service that
continued to operate when man-
agement suspended operations
six weeks ago in the wake of a
wildcat strike by flight wyten-
Without the cargo flights,
farmers were unable to export
their perishables to European
markets. Their loss has been
estimated at millions of dollars.
The produce and flowers that-
plsrael sells in Europe must be
shipped within hours of har-
The workers said they would
occupy the airport until a
minister or other senior govern-
ment official showed up to an-
swer their questions about El
Al's future.
According to the Cabinet deci-
sion, the airline would be placed
in voluntary liquidation unless
the workers agreed to negotiate
its reorganization on manage-
ment terms. A three-week dead-
line was set. Histadrut and six of
the eight El Al workers commit-
tees have agreed but the flight
attendants and pilots asked more
time to consider the ultimatum.

Gen. Amin Drori, commander
of the northern region, testified
at an open session, however, that
he had no concrete information at
the time of "irregularities" com-
mitted by the Phalangists who
had entered the camps the day
before with the permission of the
Israeli army.
HE SAID he heard "definite"
reports of the irregularities only
later that Friday afternoon. He
could not expand on the "uneasy
feeling" which, he said, was
shared by other IDF officers at
the Beirut command post, which
led him to call a halt to the Phal
angist operations.
Drori said the only indication
that something was wrong came
from civilians fleeing the camps
who told Israeli soldiers they had
been physically abused by Phal-
angist troops. He said these com-
plaints were made by several
people who said the Phalangists
broke into Palestinian houses
with their guns firing and with-
out prior warning.
Drori said he telephoned Chief
of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan to in-
form him that he had halted the
w is rivalry among the 'American authors.

did not trust the Phalangists to
carry out the operation in the
camps. But, he stressed, Israeli
troops were under explicit orders
from the General Staff not to
enter the camps. He said every
precaution was taken to prevent
direct participation by Israeli
soldiers or any army personnel
with either the Phalangists or
any other forces in combined op-
erations in Beirut or any theater
of the war in Lebanon.
Drori said that after the assas-
sination of President-Elect
Bashir Gemayel of Lebanon, he
would have preferred that the
Lebanese army deal with the re-
ported presence of armed Pales-
tinians in the refugee camps. But
the Lebanese field commanders
and other high ranking officers
refused to move without a green
light from Premier Shafiq Al-
Wazzan and that was not imme-
diately forthcoming.
Drori said that when the Leba-
nese army demurred, his personal
preference was to have the Israeli
army do the job. But since that
was not possible, the only alter-
native was to send in the Phalan-
gists. Drori said he had many
reservations about their ability to
accomplish the mission and
thought that if there was heavy
Hghting in the camps, the Phal-
angists could not cope with it.
ACCORDING to reports from
Beirut, meanwhile, Lebanon's
official investigation into the
massacre has made little head-
way and has generated minimal
public interest. The inquiry has
been conducted in secret for the
past two weeks. Few witnesses
have been called and the military
prosecutor, Assad Germanos, has
refused to give any information
to the media.
The Lebanese are said to
regard the episode as just one
more incident of bloodletting be-
tween Moslems and Christians
which has been going on for years
and are anxious to relegate it to
the past. The Palestinians prefer
to blame the Israelis, the reports
said, and the right wing "Leba-
nese Forces" militia, dominated
by President Amin Gem ay el's
Phalangist party, the strongest
private army in Lebanon, denies
any involvement in the massacre.
Will U.S. Aid to Israel See Rough Sledding Ahead?
NEW YORK (JTA) Two members
of the House Foreign Affairs Committee
predicted difficult passage for future Israel
military appropriations in Congress. Both
Congressmen Steven Solarz (D., N.Y.) and
John Le Boutillier (R., N.Y.) attributed de-
creased Congressional support for Israel,
which has been mounting over the past few
Addressing an all-day social action conference
sponsored by the Rabbinical Assembly at the Park
Avenue Synagogue that discussed such topics as
Israel, the economy, and church-state relations,'
Solarz told the 600 Conservative Jewish rabbis and
laymen: "During the past year, there has been a
significant erosion for Israel both around the
country and in the Congress."
A SIMILAR view was voiced by Le Boutillier:
"There is going to be a real bad time coming in
America and in Congress; I can feel it in my
stomach. Too many of my colleagues, especially
those who do not have large Jewish constituencies,
are less concerned about Israel and more disturbed
about domestic problems. When money is needed in
their home communities, they are going to vote to
reduce foreign aid funds."
Solarz predicted that during the forthcoming
ame-duck session of Congress which begins Nov. 29
'an amendment to reduce military aid for Israel
.night receive far more support than it did a few
years ago." He reminded the audience that such a
test vote "has not occurred for a few years."
A number of years ago, Solarz stated, a move to
reduce Israel's military assistance by $200 million
was defeated in the House by a vote of 435-38 and
100-8 in the Senate. "My guess is that if an amend-
ment were presented to cut military aid at this forth
-:oming session, the vote would find 100-150 against
in the House and 25-30 in the Senate."
SOLARZ TOLD the audience thai "given Israel's
need for American military assistance, this is a de-
velopment that we should be be concerned about."
He added that despite these developments, "there
remains after Lebanon broad-based Congressional
support for Israel and that the climate of U.S.-
Israel relations has improved during the past few
Solarz called upon the members of the Conserva-
tive synagogues to mount a vigilant communica-
tions and education effort among members of Con-
gress and non-Jews in America. He said "you must
organize for the next fight to prevent the sale of
American F-16's to Jordan which the
Administration is predicted to present to Congress
right after the elections."
along with the French and Italian
troops have been keeping peace
in the Lebanese capital. But the
Lebanese government would like
the multinational force of 3,800
persons expanded to about
30,000 with a wider range of res-
ponsibility in the country.
HUGHES SAID that Presi-
dent Reagan would have to see
whether the multinational force
as it now exists could perform the
mission assigned to it, if one will
be, under the withdrawal agree-
ment and then decide whether to
increase the U.S. forces.
Morris Draper, Deputy Assis-
tant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs,
who is a special envoy for nego-
tiations on Lebanon, began talks
with the Lebanese government
on withdrawal today. He is ex-
pected to go to Israel next and
then to Syria.

Cabinet Says Israel
Ready to Discuss Taba
The Cabinet Sunday in-
dicated that Israel is ready
to resume negotiations with
Egypt over the Taba re-
gion, a small parcel of land
near Eilat which has been
in dispute between the two
countries since Israel com-
pleted its withdrawal from
Sinai last April.
But the Cabinet also made it
clear that Israel wants the Taba
negotiations to be conducted si-
multaneously with a discussion
of other subjects of mutual inter-
est to the two countries, meaning
the autonomy talks and the nor-
malization process.
ISRAEL ALSO demands the
immediate return of the Egyptian
Ambassador, Saad Mortada, who
was recalled from Tel Aviv last
month in an expression of Cairo's
anger over the massacre of Pales-
tinians in the Sabra and Shatila
refugee camps in west Beirut.
The Cabinet devoted much of
its weekly session to a discussion
of Israeli-Egyptian relations. The
ministers were briefed by Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir who re-
ceived a letter from his Egyptian
counterpart, Kama! Hi
calling for immediate resui
of the Taba negotiations.

Still, Van der Hoeven's state-

doing everything in its power to

here said Navon will be on a 10-day visit to the U.S. during
which he will meet with Jewish leaders and with American Jews
considering immigration to Israel. An Embassy spokesman
noted that Premier Menachem Begin is expected to meet with
Reagan shortly after he addresses the Council of Jewish
Federations General Assembly in Los Angeles Nov. 13.
Egypt Asks for Resumption
Of Negotiations Over Taba's Status
CAIRO (JTA) Egypt has requested the im-
mediate resumption of negotiations with Israel over the
status of Taba, it was reported in the press here.
According to the semi-official news daily Al-Ahram,
Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamal Hassan Ali has asked
Washington, in a letter to U.S. Secretary of State George
Shultz, to play an active role in the negotiations over the
disputed territory south of Eilat, whose situation Ali is
said to have described as critical.
THE MESSAGE reportedly charged that Israeli
measures in Taba violated the provisions of a framework
concluded last April for resolving the dispute.
Preparations for the opening of a large hotel in the area
are currently underway.
Ali told reporters last Sunday that he had sent a similar
letter to Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, setting
out the Egyptian position on the territorial dispute.
In related developments, Egypt has warned "Sonesta,"
the company that will operate the new hotel, that Egypt
would consider its operations in Taba a violation of in-
ternational law, it was reported in the news daily Al-

Continuity of Faith
Of Congregation
Anshei Sholom
Recently the Jewish people
spent their Holy Days demon-
strating their reliance on their
Heavenly Father, and extolled
Him as the Holy King, the King
of Justice, Our Father, our King,
and by many other descriptive
terms. Yet His existence. His
form, His true description is still
a mystery. What can we think of
The simplest in daily exper-
iences may reveal the profound-
est meaning of life. We see this in
the story of a small boy bending
over the crib of his newborn
brother and whispering, "Tell me
quick, little brother, before you
forget, what does God look like?"
This child might well have
been speaking for the whole
human race. From our youth
through old age, we struggle un-
ceasingly to know and under-
stand God. Hut He is so vast and
so many-sided that each person
sees Him, in his own way, and
thus each person, no matter how
great, obtains but a glimpse of
The ordinary person sees Him
plainly and straightforwardly.
The more thoughful individual
beholds Him in deeper studies
and finer meanings. The laborer
approaches Him through his
strength, the artist through his
creative ability, the scientist
through his research, and the
theologian in the biblical and
liturgical word. Each in his own
way, but each equally valid and
true. There is a spark of the
Divine in every one of us. How we
preserve this spark and pass it on
to others clearly reveals the
extent to which God is in us. Foi
a spark dies unless it flares intc
full flame and makes contact with
something other than itself.
A teacher in a religious school
was reading a bible story to a
group of children. Suddenly she
looked up and asked, "Why do
you believe in God?
She received a variety of
answers, some filled with simple
belief and others obviously insin-
cere. The one that stunned her
Rabbi Harry Z. Schectman
came from a little tot. The little
one had answered, "I guess it
iust runs in our family."
A continuity of faith running
through generations is indispens-
able to establishing the roots of
trust. For there is much mon
meaning to life than any one soul,
any one people, or any one gener-
ation, can ever hope to under-
stand. And understanding is not
as important as trust.
Very few of us understand our
digestive system, but we eat.
Only doctors understand our re-
spiratory system, but all of us
breathe. We understand very
little about the mysteries of love,
but we fall in love, marry, and
raise families.
This thread of trust ties the
generations together. A family
brought up in faith realizes that
we did not create all we have,
that we are the heirs of the accu-
mulated wisdom of the genera-
tions. Moreover, we must re-
member that whenever we try to
understand the universe, we are
using our limited minds, to pass
judgment on a limitless spirit.
This limitless spirit is an endless
and wonderful sea of mystery.
Every time we discover some-
thing new, we again experience
the wonder of a great God and
come to the full realization that
the world is more than we know.
