JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Cabinet held its political
debate on foreign policy and
defense on che eve of Pre-
mier Yitzhak Rabin's depart-
ure for the United States.
The Premier's visit his
third since taking office and
the second to be officially
designated a State visit
was described here and in
Washington as an attempt to
develop a common U.S. Is-
raeli strategy in pursuit of
a Middle East peace settle-
ment and to renew the mo-
mentum of negotiations.
WHAT emerged from the Cabi-
net session was the sense of
uncertainty that clouds the
Middle East situation and bi-
lateral relations between Israel
and the U.S.
The situation in Lebanon,
where a Syrian-sponsored cease-
fire went into effect, is unclear
and there is mounting concern
here that events in Lebanon will
hereafter be controlled by the
Syrians with the balance of
power in that country shifting
from moderates to extremist
supporters of the PLO.
Relations with Washington are
also under a cloud. Israeli cir-
cles are disappointed by the
news that the Ford Administra-
tion will request $500 million
less in aid for Israel next year.
A CERTAIN tension has aris-
en over reports that even State
Department officials in Wash-
ington were surprised that the
Administration'! aid out plans
were leaked at a time when the
Administration is taking pains

By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON(JTA)
President Ford and Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
pledged continuing coopera-
tion and friendship for a
just and durable peace in
the Middle East during a
formal ceremony in a heavy,
cold rain on the White House
lawn. The two leaders, stand-
ing bare-headed, spoke of
their desire to work together
for a solution to the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
Following the 27-minute
ceremony, attended by 2,368
specially-invited guests who
stood under umbrellas, the
two leaders went into the
White House for the first of
their two meetings on Am-
erican-Israeli relations and
developments in the Middle
East diplomatic process.

CJA-IEF Response Reflects
Heightened Campaign Activity
A heightening of activity in all campaign units and
areas is evident in pledge reports to date. In his first offi-
cial report as of February 1, general campaign chairman
Stanley Brenner has announced a total of advance gifts of
$341,000. This represents a rise in the number of new con-
tributors and increased gifts from regular contributors.
Brenner attributed the promising early returns to sound
planning by campaign leaders, emphasis on face-to-face
solicitation and community awareness of Israel's critical
needs in light of its worsening economy and international
political isolation.
Especially encouraging has
been the response of new resi-
dents in condominium develop-
ments including Century Vil-
lage, Fountains, Cresthaven, Vil-
lage Royale-on-the-Green, Lake
Clarke Gardens, Golden Lakes,
Poinciana Place,, Lakeside Vil-
l"."". Covered Bridge and
Boundbrook.
Typical of growing support
was a first-time fund-rasing ef-
fort at the Fountains initiated
by David Uchill at which more
than $30,000 was raised and
plans made for further solicita-
tion.
A meeting of workers at Vil-
lage Royale-on-the-Green or-
ganized bv Aaron Brodsky drew
a crowd of nearly 200. Plans
are also under way for a com-
munitywide effort in Boca Ra-
ton\
With the completion of its
educational phase and workers
training, the Women's Division,
headed by Mrs. Cynnie List, is
now selectively assigning pros-
pects in all units and readying
for active solicitation.
STANLEY BRENNER
Organizational meetings are
scheduled for mid-February by
leaders of the Physicians, Busi-
ness / Commercial. Attorneys,
Professional and Realtor/Con-
struction Divisions.
In reviewing the campaign
progress to date, Brenner ex-
pressed optimism that the $1.5
million goal can be reached if
the present pace of the cam-
paign is maintained.

Report Rabin Met With CIA
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Middle East diploma-
tic process appeared to be President Ford's main emphasis,
while the measure of U.S. financial backing to Israel seem-'
ed to be Premier .Yitzhak Rabin's immediate concern in
their meetings here.
The financial difference centers on the reductions of
the Administration^ recommendation that military support
to Israel drop from -31.5 billion this fiscal year to $1 billion
in the new fiscal year starting Oct. 1.
THE DIPLOMATIC discus- Simcha Dinitz.
cisions deal with toe oext steps
under U. guidance without
any "hiatus" as Ford has pub-
licly put it.
Seekine to have the $500 mil-
lion restored, Rabin took the
unusual action pf meeting with
outgoing CIA director William
Colby and his successor, George
Bim*i The meeting was at the
residence of Israeli Ambassador
The CIA is charged with pro-
viding estimates on the relative
military strength of Israel and
its Arab neighbors. Rabin was
said to have told Colby and
Bush that U.S. estimates are
inaccurate regarding both Is-
rael's military power and the
continually imoroving military
strength ef its Arab neighbors.
IT HAS lone been seen here
that the Arab nations acquiring
Soviet. Euronean and American
arms are upsetting the mititary
balance to Israel's disadvant-
age. The reduction in U.S. mili-
tary aid to Israel, together with
inflation that further reduces
the purchasing cower Of the fi-
nancial package, is considered
as weakening Israel
The Defense Department, to
which the CIA reports its find-
ings, is technicalh- responsible
lor the military aid recommen-
dation, in the new U,S. budget.
However, all branches of the
government concerned with for-
eign afiaics ere jointly involved
in the recommendation It ap-
peared that the Rabin meeting
with the CIA chiefs was with
th approval of the President.

evacuated notwithstanding the
ceasefire and the end of the
fighting, for the time being at
least.
According to the informants,
civil administration has ceased
to function in the region and
Christians who fled their homes
in Moslem dominated villages
are still taking shelter in Ma-
ronite communities.
The invitation extended to
Christian refugees was not ex-
pected to bring an influx into
Israel but rather to underscore
the fact that Israel takes a
greater interest in their plight
than Christian communities
abroad.
IT WAS noted here that
neither the Vatican nor such
Catholic countries as France,
which has historical ties with
Lebanon, raised their voices
on behalf of the Christian
minority during the Lebanese
ci\il war.
Sources here recalled that
when the Jordanian army was
decimating the Palestinian ter-
rorists in 1070, more than 120
of them fled to Israel and sur-
rendered rather than face
slaughter by their fellow Arabs
Two prominent Southern Flor-
idians, both leaders in the Re-
form movement in Judaism,
have be*n named to direct the
Centennial observance program
in Florida for the Hebrew Union
College-Jew ish Institute of Re-
ligion.
Max Orovitz, business execu-
tive, attorney and philanthrop-
ist, will be chairman for activ-
ities for the entire stats, and
David B. Fleeman. also a philan-
thropist and head of Fleeman

Tempered with Disappointmei
Dr. Joseph P. Sternstein,
president of the Zionist Organ-
ization of America, tempered
his expression of gratification
at the recent U.S. veto in the
Security Council with an ex-
pression of "disappointment and
regret" at the evnlanatorv re-
marks Riven hv U.S. Ambassa-
dor Daniel P. Moynihan to the
UN and the State Department
'The explanation that the
'resolution would have blocked
a auver and tested way to a
settlement in favor of one that
would not have worked' is dis-
turbing," said Dr Sternstein. "in
that it makes no mention of the
fact that the vetoed resolution

non-existent rights to the area

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Friday, February 13,
Applause from Congress
Perhaps the most encouraging thing Prime Minis-
ter Rabin said in his address before Congress last week
was: Never again a Middle East without Israel.
It was encouraging because it was a pointed re-
sponse to the Palestine Liberation Organization demand
for a "secular, democratic Palestine" in which both Jews
and Arabs would live side by side with Israel, of
course, flushed down the drain.
It was doubly encouraging because of the incred-
ibly enthusiastic applause of the Congress in response
to the Prime Minister's words.
This is not to dismiss the rest of Rabin's speech.
The point simply is that so much of it has been said
before; so much of it will be said again.
But within the framework of repeated demands for
concessions being made irom Israel in behalf of Middle
East peace, what Rabin was saying was that at some
point Israel would say enough.
Repeatedly before he left Israel for his trip to the
U.S., the Prime Minister made clear just where that
point was. His address to the Congress may have been
more generalized about its location, but the principle
could not have been enunciated with any greater clarity.
Whatever the drift these days of the speculation
concerning U.S. movement in the direction of recogniz-
ing the PLO, the Rabin stand was a clear response to
the speculation. No Middle East without Israel means
precisely what it says.
In turn this means that, whatever the U.S. may do
about the PLO, Israel would never be prepared to pre-
side at its own dissolution. Until the PLO gives up its
absurd demand for precisely that dissolution, the U.S.
can do what it wants and Israel will do what it must.

Instant Answer Needed
It is shocking to read about the growing evidence
of widespread drug addiction in Israel, particularly
among children.
To this must be added the emerging as a fact of Is-
raeli life of extortionists and racketeers in business and
finance.
This is a sociological phenomenon that in our view
needs immediate attention alongside, perhaps, the
steep increase in the rate of Israelis permanently leav-
ing the country.
It is difficult for Diaspora Jews to be critical about
things like emigration for obvfous reasons -^ the" peren-
nial "why don't you live there yburself argument.
But it does seem to us that, in the wake of the
1973 Yom Kippur War, the role of Diaspora Jewry has
been sufficiently defined as to acknowledge its pivotal
role in Israel's national life.
Bearing this in mind, it should not seem strange
that we are concerned about emigration, or that we
voice similar concern for the rise in drug addiction and
crime in Israel.
-..j/. None of this speaks well for traditional Israeli
idtals those ideals and that idealism that sparked the
nation into being during the first 25 years of its glorious
existence.
What has happened since then? This is a question,
among others, needing an instant answer.
Fulbright's Final Choice
J. William Fulbright's career in the Senate, seen in
the long view, was certainly a distinguished one. Apart
from his role as a politician, he was also known as a
scholar of some considerable distinction.
Historically, his name will be linked to the "Ful-
bright" scholarships which annually send some of the
nation's best young people abroad to continue their stu-
dies.
Now he has capped his career by registering as a
foreign agent for the United Arab Emirates.
Fulbright's last years in the Senate were turbulent
ones. On the one hand, he was among those who quick-
ly aligned themselves against the Vietnamese war. On
the other, toward the end of his tenure, he became a
carping voice that stooped so low as to complain about
the "undue influence" of the "Zionist lobby" and "Jew-
ish finance" on Capitol Hill. (Is that why he is now a
lobbyist for Arabs?)
JjLia growing irritability before his defeat in Arkan-
sas was expressed in an increasing irascibility toward
Israel, whose existence he seemed not to be able to
abide.
His registering as an agent for the Arab Emirates
puts him where he belongs. It is sad that his great
achievements in the Senate will always have to be seen
against a backdrop of the last contentious years of his
career.
Mexico: French Lesson for Us
THE SPONTANEOUS Jewish
boycott against Mexico is
coming to just as spontaneous
an end, and not because an Is-
raeli cultural mission will be
arriving in Mexico sometime
next week. That is the effect,
not the cause.
The cause is that neither the
Jews, American and Israeli, nor
the Mexicans had their hearts
in what they were doing in the
first place.
THE RABASA apology, which
gave rise to his resignation, and
the Echeverria vow that he
would rather die than beg Is-
rael's forgiveness, were under-
leo
Mindlin
stanJable from the very begin-
ning.
In fact, and pivotallv impor-
tant. is that though Merico'il
"yes" vote for the anti-Zionist
resolution at the United Nations
was inflammatory and a cow-
ardly submission to Third World
politicking, not even Israel has |
been able to hold it against her.
Neither is the ending of the I
boycott as simple as that an 1
astonishing Mexican change of
heart means an automatic re-l
sumption of American Jewish]
tourism, the sudden cessation!
of which had dealt a staggerinjl
blow to Mexico's economy.
FOR ONE thing, the change
of heart has yet to be doct-J
mented. For another, so do the!
statistics on the blow to Mei-I
ico's economy. My own opii-j
ion is that neither was as
tonishing nor as staggering n|
we have been led to believe.
We can not expect that Met]
ico will abandon her expedient I
UN policy. Nor should we think
that the Mexicans are in fact |

Is Ghost Town In the Future
For Port of Eilat?
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
And GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Fear
continued to mount in Eilat that
Israel's" southernmost city and
sole outlet to the Red Sea would
become a ghost town after the
Timna copper mines are closed
down and its dismissed employ-
es are forced to find jobs else-
where.
Minister of Co-nmerce and
Industry Haim Bariev, who flow
to Eilat Jan. 5 aft^r a gpn-ral
strike protesting the shut-down
paralyzed the town, told the
Knesset that there was no hope
of getting the money-losing cop-
per works out of the red for the
next five years.
THE TIMNA mine workers
won a reprieve of uncertain
duration when Barlev promised
that the copper mines would
not be shut down until alterna-
tive jobs are found for its 700
employes. But he hedged his
promise on further consultation
with his colleagues on the min-
isterial economic committee
which had recommended to the
government that the deficit-rid-
den industry be shut down.
New job prospects are also
uncertain. Labor Minister Mo-
she Baram promised that the
dismissed mine workers would
be employed building a new air-
port seven miles north of Eilat,
a project already approved by
the Cabinet but not scheduled
to start for three months.
Israel Aircraft Industries was
reported planning to locate a
new metal plant in Eilat, but
that will not be ready for at
least three years. Baram con-
ceded that even those projects
would not provide jobs for all
of the laid-off mine workers.
MOREOVER, those projects
are in the construction field and
Eilat residents were wondering
what would become of the sci-
entists, engineers, lab techni-
cians and copper specialists em-
ployed in office jobs at Timna.
They cannot become tractor
operator or construction work-
eiw overnight; if-w*.s remarked;
ant what of the wives of these
white collar employes, many of
whom teach at Eilat's schools?
They would leaxe if their hus-
binds ha'e to find jobs else-
where and the local school sys-
tem would suffer from a short-
age of teachers.
BARLEV told the Knesset that
the government had no choice
but to shut down the mines in
view of the continuing depres-
sion in copper prices on the
world market. He observed that
in other countries, better mines
than Timna had been closed
down for the same reason.
He estimated that if the works
were kept going they would lose
IL 67 million in 1976 on top of
an IL 60 mili'on deficit last year
and that /e outlook for 1977
and 1978 was even worse.
Meanwhile, a special comit-
tee has been set up in Eilat with
the participation of Histadrut's
Trade Union Department and
various government agencies
to explore the job problems
with Eilat authorities.
THE HOPE Is to find l
ployrftent 4fc thrj Eilat areaftf
as Wmh9 as possible. But the outlook wail
not good. Apart from the cop-1
per mines, Eilat's chief sourcesi
of jobs are the port, the oil pipe-
line to Ashkelon and tourisaj

Question
Box
By RABBI DR. SAMUEL J. FOX
What are "selichoth"'
"Selichoth" are penittntial
prayers whose theme is to seek
forgiveness from the Almighty.
They are particularly in order
when a person or community is
confronted witn matters of great
concern. It is for this reason
that "selichoth" are recited be-
fore the holiday of Rosh Hash-
anah and between the holidays
of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kip-
pur.
Since thess holidays are days
of judgment when a decision for
life or death hangs in the bal-
ance, it is certainly in o-.d.-r to
offer prayers for forgiveness to
insure a positive judgment for
life.
Some communities begin
these prayers a month before
Rosh Hashanah, others begin
the prayers at least four days
before Rosh Hashanah, starting
with the midnight after the Sab-
bath before Rosh Hashanah.
Why is it that in many com-
munities such as oars, the be-
ginning of the selichoth pray
era takes place after midnight
of the Sabbath before Rosh
Haahaaab?
There are several motives for
this practice. In the first place,
the rabbis ordain that selichoth
should be chantede at least four
days before Rosh Hashanah.
This is because the law of
sacrifices required that a sa-
crifice be prepared at least four
days before its offering to make
sure that it had o blemish.
On Rosh Hashanah, accord-
ing to the rabbis, man himself
is the sacrifice whose very life
is "at stake." He therefore pre-
pares himself at least four days
before Rosh Hashanah to mane
sure he is free of the blemish of
guilt.
The rabbis further felt that
selichoth cannot be chanted on
the Sabbath and that the spirit
of the Sabbath persists until
jnidnight. Thus, the moment
after midnight is the first occa-
sion to chant trie selichoth.
While the Sabbath is not the
occasion for selichoth because
it is a moment of complacency
as compared to the occasion of
selichoth which disturbs the
mind, it does serve as a day of
clearing the mind. It is, thus,
after the "rest" of the Sabbath
that man has a clear mind, espe-
cially in the quiet hours of in-
trospection after midnight. It Is
an ideal time to examine one's
self with the "rested" mind so
that one can be both clear and
objective as well as hopeful.

Your Rabbi Speaks
Brotherhood in Action
RABBI MAX L. FORMAN
Temple Emana-EI of Palm' Beach
February has been designated
as 'Brotherhood Month" these
many, many years. Usually, a
message to Jews from the pul-
pit or through the media by a
rabbi or Christian minister, ex-
tolling brotherhood and de-
manding brotherlv behavior on
their nart, is much like urging
a rabbit to make peace with,
and be friendly to, a fox or
th poor man to accent the gift .
nf the wealth\ The call should
be directed to the non-Jewish
majority the powerful and
controlling element to-make
the overtures of good will and
brotherliness.
Instead, therefore, of making
an anneal to you for kindness
to, and understanding of. our
ncp.-Jewish fellows, may I call
your attention to the gladden-
ing fact that during the recent
crises that have been plaguing
our Israeli brethren and our-
selves there have been many
expressions of good will and
frsternalism on the part of our
Christian colleagues. Truly
these have been "Brotherhood
in Action."
Benjamin Nunez, a Jesuit
priest, speaking at the UN Gen-
eral Assembly on behalf of his
country. Costa Rica, urged his
Jewish brothers not to be dis-
heartened by "this diabolical.
resolution which '-condemns
them to further persecution .
Let-your children and the chil-
dren of your children continue
to be an examnle of heroism
and constant affirmation of hu-
man dignity."
Dr. Claude Duvernoy, a
French Protestant minister and
founder of Christian Action for
Israel, spoke in South Africa,
emphasizing that "It is the
*n ritual dynamite contained in
the message of divine justice,
human brotherhood and peace
between nations, which Israel
brought to the world, that ac-
cojnts for the world's contin-
ued hostility towards Israel
after 4,000 years of history.
-TOO MANY people in the
so-called Christian world." he
said, "remain oblivious to the
amazing metaphysical dimen-
sion of history because their
minds remain closed to the ex-
plicit nromlsfs of the Hebrew
Bible. When God said to Israel.
This land I give to thee and
thy children forever.' the word
forever* in Hebrew is 1e-Ham,'
meaning for as long as the
world exists.'
"It was one of the conven-
tional lies of cultural historians
that the Greeks invented dem-
ocracy. The democracy of
Athens was based on an enorm-
ous slave population, and those
i4iiij were not third-class
citizens they had no human
rights. I believe that it was Is-
rael far the first time in his-
tory, who spoke for democracy.
Israel's message was one of
equality, and even the slave
was guaranteed his freedom
after seven years. He had te he
treate*as a ietlvw human being
and be given the Jewish right
to a weehly day of rest. JMI of
this ws a total revolution in
ancient tiroes and in some
it is still revolutionary.

we find tint no dynamite can
coronate with the spiritual dy-
namite which the Hebrew Bible
represents.
"WHAT IS hated (by the
world) is the message of salva-
tion and the divine mystery
which the People of Israel bear
with them."
William Watters. a prominent
American Methodist minister
with a doctorate in Judaic
Studies, sounded a warning at
the Yad Vashem Memorial to
the Holocaust victims, in a rally
on the anniversary of Krlstall-
nacht: "Never let down your
guard and be lulled into believ-
ing that the world will leave
you alone. The UN anti-Zionist
resolution is iust another step
in the world's evil attempt to
destroy more Jewish souls.
"If the non-Jewish world suc-
ceeds in convincing you to for-
Bet the danger, or makes you
concentrate on only one attack
and disregard the others, it will
ha,re set you up for a new and
perhans even more comprehen-
sive wav to annihilation. The
four methods that have been
used throuahout history against
the Jew, and are still used to-
dav. are extermination, expul-
sion, conversion, and assimila-
tion. Jews should never forget
the Holocaust, so that they will
not be surprised by attacks
meant to take Jewishness from
the Jew.'
ADD THESE voices of Chris-
tian men of God to the shocked
and outraged reactions to the
anti-Zionist resolution by men
of diplomacy, science, and the
arts with which we are already
familiar, and we have an array
of Hasidei Umot Ha-olam whom
we may greet and bless in the
spirit of true brotherhood and
genuine human concern!

he wa whether
the mid-April timetable was an
error. Nessen sidestepped the
question by declining to confirm
it.
Nessen also said that the trip
"would be totally removed from
political considerations."
This led to immediate specu-
lation- by Informed sources
here that the President and
Dr. Kissinger have decided to
pursue with vigbr their long-
standing policy to bring about
further agreements in the
diplomatic process between ts-
rael'and its Arab neighbors.
ALTHOUGH this is an elec-
tion year, and some have been
indicating that the administra-
tion would swing 2-6- from
strong, insistence on movement
that might be construed In Is-
rael as undue pressure with-
out commitments by the Arab
government, it is firmly be-
lieved that the President would
make domestic political capital
by driving toward soro* sort
of agreement whether or not it
is palatable to the Rabin gov-
ernment.
Israeli sources here had in-
dicated last weak in discussing
the Rabin visit that they also
were. opposed to consideration
of a presidential election veer as
slowing dqwn the diplomatic
process.
Yhey indicated further that
Israel would be prepared to
enter into an informal confer-
ence that Kissinger had pro-
lXMed last fall as a means to
start the multi-lateral duwnnv
sions going.
THE THINKING here has
been that Kissinger designed
his proposal as a means to
bring about the entrance of
the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization into a parley that Wash-
ington would control.
Uhder the Geneva confer-
ence arrangement by the
United Nations security coun-
cil, Israel would have a veto
on the PI.O participation:
However, it is now thought
by pro-Israel sympathizers that
possibly the preparatory meet-
ing would bring. Syria into a
multinational discussion since
it could say that it is not go-
ing back on its position that
the PLO would hare to be par-
ticipants.
SYRIA did not take part in
the first Geneva conference
two years ago.
A presidential visit to the
Middle Bast possibly would in-

educators, communal workers

lars who have earned their de-
crees at HUC-JIR serve in Jew-
ish- communities all over- the

Abraham Lincoln and the Jews
on the anniversary of his birth, February 12
ELSIE LEVITON
Chairwoman
Temple Israel Library
Committee
More than any other presi-
(jnt Abraham Lincoln and hi*
Administration had a profound
effect on the Jews of America.
,,,jd-H00's was an expand-
i and flowering period for the
American Jewish community.
B r.-uise of political and eco-
P.-lie hardshina in Europe, the
Jewish population increas-d
from about 50.000 in 1850 to
l.sn.ooo by i860.
How shall we trace the effect
Lincoln ha-1 unon the American
Jewish community? Was it the
fri*ndshin hi-tween Lincoln and
? Ipwish lawyer from Quincy,
Thcc was m'eed a deep affec-
tion between Abraham Lincoln
ani Abralrim .Tnas. Jonas, who
cne to the United States in
1<19, first settled in Kentucky,
where he served in the state
I qislntuve. After moving to
I""iois, he passed the Bar in
1844.
He and Lincoln engaged in
Vhie politics, rnd also s"'ed
as pre i lential electors. When
Lincoln was in 'Hiincv ti visit-
ith Jonis and used his of-
fice. Jen 1" co"iT'i^nd
as Lincoln rose to political pro-
irin.'n'- nil in their corre-
spondence Lincoln address-^
IS "......." best friend."
OR WAS Lincoln's assistance
to the Jpwish community due
to his m'i nate nowledge of the
Bible an*1 its inspiration? In any
e'ont. he intervened on their
behalf on many occasions.
In 18*1 Congress enacted th-
Osnlatncv Law, reouiring all
military ch-.nlnins to be ordain-
ed ministers "of some Christian
d-nomination." In resnonse to
letters of nrotest from the Jew-
ish communitv. Lincoln wrote,
"I shall trv to have a new law
b">id enough to cover what you
desire."
The A-ric*n Jewish eo-
p'mitv had m"t its first chal-
l"nee for canal rights, and the
law was finallv changed to read,
""f some religious denomina-
tion."
Durinc the war. Gen-mi
f-int issued an order nrohibit-
ir Jews to trade with the army.
faain, Lincoln advanced the
Hp1s of democracy in a strong
Jetter^reypking the order.

IN 1850 a treaty between the
United States and the Swiss
Confederation established the
rights of citizens of each coun-
try to travel to the other. Sev-
eral Swiss cantons specifically
evcluded Jews, despite the pro-
test that as American citizens
thev should not be placed on a
different footing from other
Americans.
Nothing was changed until
President Lincoln, in an em-
phatic gesture, appointed a Jew
as Consul in Zurich. He could
not have made his attitude plain-
er to the Swiss and to the Jews
of America.
At a time when the founda-
tion of our Amerkan democracy
was b.ine tested and reaffirm-

pd. tvis was the heritage Lin-
coln l 'ft for the Jews, for all
America and for all humanity.

Dear Jenny,
For quite a few yean I have

I decided to make my perma-

Someone told me that aa a
permanent resident I am en-
titled to certain tax advantages.
Is this true, and if so. where
can I find out what they are?
Mrs. J.A.
Dear Mrs. J.A.,
According to information
from the office of the Palm
Beach County Property Apprais-
er any person who owns a resi-
dence and maintains it as his
or her home on January 1, is
entitled to a $5,000 exemption.
An additional exemption of $5,-
000 is granted to a homeowner
if he (she) or the spouse has
reached the age of 65 by Jan-
uary 1, making a total amount
of $10,000 which is deducted
from the appraised valu* of the
home. A widow, regardless of
age. is entitled to a $500 ex-
emption, but if she is over 65
and has already, been granted
the full $10,000 exemption, she
cannot receive the extra $500.
According to law. total exempt-
tierts- for nirr hobeowner cannot
exceed $10,000.

In a 2JHMKvord. statament
that spokesman Robert Funseth
described as "peally the defini-
tive statement as- of now on
our approach" to1 the- achieve-
ment of Middle East peace, the
Department said that the "ne-
gotiating framework establish-
ed in previous "Security Coun-

ha.l won widespread acceptance
ami should be preserved."
THIS "negotiating. frame-
work," ; the .'statement said-, rh?
sufficiently flewWe that it can
provide the basis for negotiat-
ing Jfir ind durable sohrtions
to aU the issues lm-otved."
The statement said that
"there will be no permanent
peace unless it includes ar-
rangements that take Into ac-
count the legitimate interests
of the Palestinian people."
Bm it pointed out that it is
"not realistic" to expect Israel,
to agree to the participation of,
the Palestinians-in negotiations!
if the Palestinian policy is -"to'
seek the disappearance" of Is-
rael as a state.
Wnai B'rith Still
Undecided About
Formal Relations ,
"WASHINGTON B'nai B'rkh said last week tha-_
"contrary to published statements," it had made no
decision to reinstitute group tours to Mexico.
-tVnw B'rtth President David M. Blumberg said that
his organization plans no formal action to resume such
tours until a poll of some 2,000 of its'local leaders, so-
liciting their views and reactions, is completed.
BLUMBERG SAID it was "unfortunate" that tht
recommendations of a special committee for the Con
ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organi-
ations. proposing that the American Jewish community s
relations with Mexico be "fully iormalized,, had been
jftibticly nted "before any of its constituent or
. ganizutions had a chance to act on them."
This has created implications of a change in B na-.
B'rith's policy on tourism that is, at this time, unwar-
ranted," Blumberg declared.

I Deal Flat
LONDON (JTA) Dr.
Nahum Goldmann has denied
that his negotiations with the
Weat German authorities on
DM 600 million claims of Holo-
caust victims have finally col-
lapsed, with the West Germans
saying they would pay no more
compensations. In a cable to
the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy's London office, the presi-
dent of the World Jewish Con-
gress wrote:
"With regard to your state-
ment January 22nd that nego-
tiations concerning final set-
tlement for Jewish victims of
Nazi persecution have fallen
through', I want to deny this
information as without foun-
dation. No decision has been
reached by the German gov-
ernment concerning the mat-
ter.
"IT IS quite likely that, be-
cause of the financial prob-
lems facing the German govern-
ment and in view of the begin-
ning election year, the final
decision may have to be post-
poned till after the elections
but no negative decision has
been taken by the German au-
thorities, as I was assured."

JERUSALEM (JTA) "Are political considera-
tions so powerful that they silence men of faith and
block any move to bring succor to brothers in distress?"
Religious Affairs Minister Yitzhak Raphael posed
the question in a strongly-worded attack on the silence
of church leaders over the slaughter and maltreatment
of Christians in Lebanon.
Speaking to a National Religious Party gathering
in Tel Aviv, he blasted the "strange silence" of church
leaders.
Meanwhile, informed sources closely familiar with
the events in Lebanon told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency late last week, before the truce went into ef-
fect, that the fighting there has been particularly sav-
age, with both sides often flagrantly violating the basic
canons of the Geneva Conventions.

is clearly not the best
Ton which to pursue inter-
nal relations, but for the
nent it is better than no re-
i at all.
A'ith this in mind. I keep
jidering why we assaulted
fcxico so overwhelmingly on
, anti-Zionist vote, and why
have been so silent about
> French.
NCE THE final glorious
of Le Grand Charles de
e, France has been a dag-
struck deep in the heart of
eli sensibilities. The French
" vote last week to the in-
nous Palestine state resolu-
at the UN should be the
de grace.
Compared to Mexico's brief
fling with expediency, France's
history since the mid-1950's has
been a cemetery filled with the
rotting corpses of her once re-
volutionary ideals.
I am not dealing here with
repeated French betrayals of
America since then or even
with the long-term impact of
America's own betrayal of
France in the 1956 Suez-Sinai
war, which may well have been
the cause behind the cancerous
quantum leap in French be-
trayals in the first place.
MY CONCERN is with Israel,
which has suffered in her pro-
portion far more from these
betrayals than any other west-
ern or pro-western nation un-
fortunate enough to attract the
animus and egomania of Le
Grand Charles, and the spirit
of that animus and that ego-
mania, which still linger on at
Quay d'Orsay long after him.
It would be intereating to
count American Jewry's tourist
dollar outlay in Paris despite
this dismal history. Why the
stand on Mexico and the indif-
ference to a boycott of vaca-
tioning in France?
Is it that we could do with a
respite from Montezuma's re-
venge but not without the lat-
est Parisian perfume?
MY EARLIEST recollection of
those Mutt and Jeff photographs
of Le Grand Charles and Da-
vid Ben-Gurion are still heart-
warming enough.
But when Le Grand Charles
turned French egomania into
an instrument, among other
things, of classical anti-Semi-
tism, I wondered then why Jews
still trod the beaten boring path
to the Place de la Concorde and
the Champs Elysees.
De Gaulle it was who talked
about Jews as the "killers of
Christ" in his never-ending at-
tacks on Israel once he deter-
mined that France's future in
the Middle East must be pur-
sued at the expense of Israel.
DE GAULLE it was who thus
influenced the Arabs to believe
that their struggle against Is-
rael, on European terms, might
well include the revolting anti-
Semitic canards of the past.
De Gaulle it was who, among
all Europe's leaders, singlehand-
edly took what Rolf Zundel in
the West German newspaper
;'Die Zeit," called an "author-
itarian posture during the
Middle East crisis" of 1967
meaning sharply anti-Israel.
De Gaulle it was who, after
the war, prompted Erik Blu-
menfeld, a Christian Democrat
member of the Kurt Georg Kie-
singer government, to declare
that "the French President
again is risking his accomplish-
ments by setting out a danger-
ous political course that, if it
is not countered, will split Eu-
rope militarily and politically."
DE GAULLE it was who, aft-
er the war, prompted Howard
K. Smith to say of him, "De
Gaulle represents only De Gaul-
le. His influence has been nega-
tive and destructive. His ideas
are a barren set of grandiose
words."
De Gaulle it was who, after
the war, raged at "Anglo-Sax-
ons'' in his "Free Quebec"
movement, which he somehow
linked to "Israeli aggression."
One can go on and on. Since
Le Grand Charles' day, little
has changed, other than that
his attack on the stability of
the U.S. dollar, which failed,
later gave the Arabs a similar
idea.
THAT IDEA is already par-
tially succeeding in the same
way that the Gaullist anti-Sem-
itism spurred the Arabs to suc-
cess in the restoration of clas-
sical Jew-hatred as a political
tool.

developments would force Israel
to act and they should there-

Rabin noted that Lebanon
was the only Arab country in
the Middle East where Islam
is not the official religion. He
said the developments there
have demonstrated that the
Moslem majority is not pre-
pared to tolerate any autonomy
for the non-Moslem minority.
DEFENSE Minister Shimon

ber UJA mission from Cleve-
land, said "We feel our warn-
ings regarding Lebanon have
been sufficient until now. I
know that some elements in
Lebanon are appreciative.
'Tf the Syrians are around in

ciation of their strength com-

Mideast Clouds Rabin's Visit
Continued from Page 1
' i develop a comfortable at-
nosphere for Rabin's visit
Officials here believe Wash-
ington's main concern is to get
through 1976 without a new
Middle Kast war. The U.S..
therein e, wants "momentum"
in negotiations because it be-
lieves that stagnation can only
lead to war.
One of the conundrums that
Rabin had to solve in his tall s
with President Ford and Secre-
tary of State Henry A. Kissin-
ger was how to generate mo-
mentum in a situation that has
changed substantially since the
icond Israeli-Egyptian interim
l ccord was signed last Septem-
ber.
OFFICIALS here see no
chance of interim talks with
Syria since that country con-
tinues to pursue a hard line
which so far has advanced
President Hafez Assad's political
stature in the Arab world as
champion of t he Palestinian
cease.
Although implementation of
e Sinai accord with Egypt is
proceeding smoothly, there is
no question oi initiating a
irrher step-by-step process
v ith Cairo. The U.S. and Israel
in fact agreed in their Septem-
ber Memorandum that the next
:e of negotiations with Egypt
must be for a final peace set-
tlement.
This leaves Jordan as the only
ont where a negotiating "mo-
mentum" might be developed.
Officials here have shown a
renewed interest of late in "the
Jordanian option" and say the
U.S. is also interested in ex-
ploring the possibility thai Jor-
dan can reiiwisnt* itself -s -a siot>4o Amman that mig*<-in*
negotiating partner on behalf
of the West Bajii* Arabs.
SINCE the October, 1974. Arab
summit meeting at Rabat es-
tablished the PLO as the sole
representative of the Palestin-
ian Aral's. Jordan has taken a
back seat, and ha-; acquiesced,
at least in public, to the PLO's
role.
The U.S.. as is well known
In re, held and still holds Is
rael responsible for failing to
agatJab an interim pact with
King Hussein before the Rabat
meeting which might have
headed off the PLO resolution.
Some officials here, however,
detect signs that Hussein may
be tryingr to find a way back
to the center oi negotiations.
He has announced that he
will convene his parliament in
March with the participation,
for the first time, of its West
Bank members.
THF.RE will 'be municipal
elections on- the West Bank in
April held under Israeli
aegis,, hut according .to Jordan-
ian law which could become
a showdown between PLO
sympathizers- and more mod-
irate forces who remain loyal
to Hussein or favor a non-PLO
indigenous representation of
West Bank interests.
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon.
v. ho visited Washington early
' month, is understood to
have tentatively rained his lat-
est ichas for informal raHrs be*
tween Israel and Jordan with
the participation oi non-PLO
Wst Bank leaders. According
to Allon. U.S. officials seemed
interested in his ideas.
What remained unclear and
indeed doubtful was whether
Rabin could make an attrac-
tive and authoritative proposal
to the American for transmis-
duee Hussein to risk the anger
of Arab hardliners in the hope
of regaining part of the West
Bank in an interim setlement.
RABIN, however, would also
be takiny a political risk at
least equal to Hussein's. Israeli
proposals invoh Big withdrawal
from any part of the West Bank
are certain to create a furore
in Rabia's coalition government
and posil.lv lead to its down-
fall.
Theoretically, the govern-
ment has the right to negotiate
With Jordan, but it is obliged
to call lor a national referen-
dum before it cau actually sigu
a West Bank settlement
M:ny obseivers here believe
the Rabin government is too
weak to negotiate with Hussein
sunie say Ford and Kissinger
are aware of the Premier's in-
ternal difficulties and would
not press him for any defini-
tive proposals on Jordan at this
time but would seek instead a
broad, general statement of Is-
rael's' willingness to consider
interim talks, with Jordan.
IT IS unclear, however, how
such a general statement would
generate the. negotiating mo-
mentum desired by Washing-
ton. Another option is the Ge-
neva conference.

Fit u"interesting to note what the Arabs really
. thini( or know. In a recent issue of the Le-
*r paper. "Sho'un Palestinia,". one Hatat Salam
Zsoud gives his readers an account of techno-
Lca! progress in Israel as he ees it. He claims
,o relv on Israel sources for his information.
BY WAY of comparison, he observes that in the
list of 24 nations which are-singled out by the
Institute"for Strategic Studies in London es major
producers of their own armaments the name of
Israel appears, but not a single Arab state.
Naturally he turns much of'his attention to
the nuclear field. Maksoud reports thatabout 2,800
scientists and engineers in Israel are engaged in
(Zrl
&4I,
'pert
nuclear activity alone. He tells about two atomic
Uactors, one at Kahal Sorrk. which meets the needs
for advanced scientific and technological training,
and the other at Dimona, as well as a number of
secondary installations.
He gives credit to the Department of Nuclear
hnuinucrins and Science which trains the country's
skilled manpower in this field.
THERE IS a note of envy in his article as he
records that Israel's military production in certain
11 iMa is so sruiit that there is plenty available for
protitable export. Most of the country's artillery,
-he-says^-is..prr*hired by- a firm named Soltam, set
up in 1951, and 60 percent of its output is sold
nerseas.
The electronics industry is so flourishing that
the production has markets in 40 countries. The,
L-banes2 writer tells that Israel has established
electronics plants of its own design in a number
of African. Asian and I^atin American countries.
Maksoud becomes almost eloquent in his de-
tailed descriptions of the capabilities of Israel's guns
and missiles. Whh reap-ct to the former, he tells
about a 90 mm antirtank cannon, transported on
a half-track which has a 365-degree revolving tur-
ret even when the- vehicle is in motion.
IF ONE wore .unaware of the identity of the
writer, one would even imagine a note of pride
as he desciibjs a .155 caliber gun mounted on a
Sherman chassis. It lias a 20 kilometer range and
can fire three shells a second. The vehicle can
travel for 20 consecutive hours and has a speed
of 58 kilometers an hour. Those smart Israelis.

I Speak in Behalf of

PC-obert
ITHIS IS the season for bestowal of thai Nobel
Prize on Andrei Sakharov, Russian free-
|dom fighter.
And in the Sakharov story the world may
Ibehold, if it only takes the.trouble to look.
Ithe full meaning of willingness to risk a well-
Iloved life in defense of liberty. For Sakharov
is a hero extraordinary, standing now at the
center stage in the unfolding drama wherein
Itechnology lias overkill enough to crush the
[human spirit.
"I APPEAL to you with respect and hope,"
I Sakharov cried out to the world in February,
1974, when he was presented Ibe I Norman
JThomas Freedom Award. H take won my-
Iself the liberty of expressing my.gratitude on
behalf of all Soviet dissidents'." At that time,
Ithe famed Russian physicist boldly asked un-
liversal support for several -argent social
Ictuses.
He called lor free access by the RAJ-Cross
land the World Health Organization to inspect
[Soviet prisons; appealed for aannesty tor-'So-
viet political prisoners; prayed for an. end of
discrimination against ntjhwal naswrMes;
bought support lor Aleksanar 8otahesritsyo, at
I that time in a battle wish X the .Wussum gov-
leramem over the distribution <4f "HRhe 2*ilag
jArchipelano;'' urged a UliupailHi 'wrttte de-
fense of "all the harassed, honest wrtterB" In
Ithe USSR.
AND TO this 1st of cries for freedom he
addeo another requiring perhaps the greatest
display of valor on his part: "Please develop
a campaign for freedom of emigration.''
The Nobel Prize-Winner's wife, who has
been in Italy recently for. a cataract opera-
tion, has learned from her Jewish mother who
spent .16 years in Stalin's prison camps, how
precious that right of emigration from Rus-
sia can be. And Sakharov himself places his
appeal for free movement across borders i at
.the heart of his petition to the world.
In speaking up so courageously for the
right of Jews to leave Russia. Sakharov has
praised the support of Christian spokesmen
for this effort and has forthrightly warned
foreign theologians not'to be taken in by some
of the official religious leaders of the USSR
wham he has identified as "collaborators."
BRANDED 'an "anti-patriot'' simply for
being designated as recipient of the Nobel
Peace Award, Sakharov has sent the'Kremlin
and the Soviet press.into frenzied efforts to
downgrade him.
It may be that at the' time Sakharov -was
contributing so much to-Russia's "development
of the hydrogen .bomb, "he was mindful -of
words spoken hy Adlai Stevenson: "In .a head-
long rush for national security,-we Tnust not
trample freedom."

Jews Deplore
Phone Cheating
^ NUMBER of widely-used stratagems which make possible
use of telephone facilities with avoidance of payments for
such calls has been labeled by an Orthodox rabbinical student
as violations of Jewish Religious Law.
That judgment was made by Isaac Mann, a student at the
Rabbi Isaac Elchanon Rabbinical Seminary' of Yeshiva Uni-
versity, who writes an occasional feature, "Moral Dilemma.''
for Kol Yavneh, the official, publication of Yavneh, an Ortho-
dox college student organization His comments on tricking
the telephone companies /were mode in his column in the
November-December issue of the publication.
KACH COLUMMN opens-with a format of "Problem,'*
"Case," and "Dilemma." i.ne problem in that issue was given
-as "making telephone cans without paying for them." The case
was gi.en as follows: "Jacob Schwartz wishes to tell his wife
he arrived safely. A one-woed message by phone is sufficient.
He wants to- call her person-to-person and ask for 'Mr. Fine.'"
The dilemma: "Can Jaoob make this phone call? On the
one hand, he thinks he is doing nothing wrong since he is
abiding strictly by the rules: Namely, if the party you seek
person-to-person is not in, pou doa't have to pay for the ca On the other hand, Jacob is consciously cheating the phone
company of payment for >a service, since his message is beiiv
conveyed." Mann is listed ha ithe publication masthead as a
. oontrtbotiag editor.
MANN SAID, in a-note.preceding his evaluation, that he
extended his "deepest thanks "to Rabbi J. David Bleich, pro-
fessor 6f philosophy and Talmud at Yeshiva University, who
-reviewed "the" haelr features of this article with me over the
phone." Mann added that while Rabbi Bleich was "in essen-
tial agneement faith this *malpsis, he begrs*o responxibility
for the Halachic statements found herein, 'flame of the issues
are very ryTaatiise f*a*her consultation
with experts."
"With that caveat,' Mann then proceeded to analyze the
problem by Halachic standaras. The Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy called the office of Yavneh in New York and asked for a
formal comment on whether it was permissible for a non-rabbi
to publish public statements, based on Jewish Religious Law.
on such issues.
RACHEL SHAPIRO, a member of the publication's editorit'.
board, replied that Mann was doing no more than any Jew in
studying sources and reporting on his findings but that Mann's
finuings were not to be considered rabbinic rulings.
Mann treated the topic in terms of two categories of mis-
use of telephone facilities, one being the "less prominent er-
rors," such as that presented by the fictitious Jacob Schwartz,
the other being such more obvious-offenses as fraudulent use
of credit cards, "clicking" the telephone to simulate deposit ef
coins and "other such unscrupulous acts designed to evade
legitimate payments for phone service."
Mann said it was not his inten'ion "to assume a muckrack-
ing role." He said he was merely referring to some of "the
more egregious sins that a few commit in order to demonstrate
the importance of dealing with the less prominent errors that
meet of us make, with regasd to the -use of the telephone."
IN ADDITION to the dilemma of the fictitious Jacob
Mann posed the question apparently in the category of "the
less promment errors" of whether a person could make a
collect call to another person knowjng that the individual wou|d
not accept the reverse charges hat thesehy a particular person was present at the other end, and theft

Proclaim liberty
Four thousand years ago, the Bible called the Jewish
people to "Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all
the inhabitants thereof ."And in 1776 the same call echoed
through America, to create the first democracy the modern
world has known.
The Declaration of Independence of the United States of
America set forth all the Jewish people hold dear,
spiritually and philosophically.
In 1948, almost 175 years later, the Proclamation of
Independence of the State of Israel set forth the same
principles:"... to develop the land for the good of all its
inhabitants; to rest upon foundations of liberty, justice and
peace; to maintain complete equality of social and
political rights for all its citizens without distinction of
creed, race or sex; and to guarantee freedom of religion
and conscience, of language, education and culture.**
Two proclamations with one purpose, both proving that
where liberty, justice and equality are the creed, all men
are truly brothers.
