"If anything, terrorism will

essential that the attack of

Denounce Libyan As
UN Council President
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) Israel, charging
that Libya was behind the hijacking of an Air France
plane to Uganda, the recent terrorist attack on passengers
boarding an El Al plane in Istanbul and other terrorist
atrocities, has denounced the fact that the Libyan
the president of the Security
representative will be
Council in September.
"What more blatant
example could there be of
the systematic cynical
disregard of the Charter of
the United Nations than
the fact that the
representative of Libya, the
paymaster and instigator of
international terror, will
preside over the Security
Council during the month
of September," Israeli
Ambassador Chaim Herzog
said in a letter to UN
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim.
"EXACTLY four years after
the massacre of the Israeli
athletes at the Munich Olympiad,
an accomplice to that crime will
assume the presidency of the
Security Council," he stated.
The presidency of the Council
is rotated automatically each
month among its 15 members.
But Herzog noted that "Libya, a
totalitarian dictatorship ruled by
Col. (Muammar) Qaddafi. whose
hands are soaked in the blood of
innocent victims of international
and Arab terror throughout the
world" is a member of the
Council which is charged by the
JN Charter with "the main-
tenance of international peace
and security."
"It is the considered view of
the government of Israel.that the
time has been reached when the
United Nations must take im-
mediate and effective action in
order to put an end to this in-
tolerable situation," Herzog said.
HERZOG S LETTER, which
he asked to be circulated as an
official document of both the
Council and the General
Assembly, contained a list of a
dozen terrorist hijackings and
other attacks in which Libya was
involved from Sept. 8, 1971,
through March 3,1974.
In his letter, the Israeli envoy
centered on Libyan responsibility
for the attack in Istanbul in
which four El Al passengers were
killed. He said that the Popular
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine, an "integral part of the
so-called Palestine Liberation
Organization," has claimed credit

Senate Approves
Tax Reform Act
The Senate approval of a
provision in the Tax Reform Act
that will penalize corporation
executives for compliance with
the Arab boycott against Israel is
a most welcome development.
The 86-1 vote for it shows a
strong feeling in the country
against the compliance of
American companies with the
boycott. Even the one Senator
who voted against the provision,
Floyd Haskell (D., Colo), said he
was not against the provision but
opposed the entire Tax Reform
Act.
The provision adopted by the
Senate, known as Title Ten of the
Trade Reform Act, would subject
corporate executives to penalties,
including a year in jail, for failing
to report any corporate incomes
in any country that requires par-
ticipation in the boycott.
The thinking in the Senate, as
demonstrated by the over-
whelming vote, was that if
company executives realize that
they will be held personally
responsible they will not be so
quick to justify caving in to the
Arab boycott.
Now that strong laws are
coming into existence it will be
necessary for whoever is elected
President in November to see
I that the legislative words are put
into administrative action.

James M. Adams, Mayor of

Fall Program Begins at JCC
On Sept. 8 the Jewish Com-
munity Center of the Palm
Beaches began its new Fall
program with a special Bi-
centennial exhibition, "The Jew
and the American Opportunity,"
and a concert with Israeli vocalist
Zmira Henn. Jules Rothman,
program chairman of the center,
hosted the evening.
Beginning at 7 p.m. visitors
viewed an unusual collection of
rare photographs compiled by
Daniel Leivick, director of Judaic
and Israeli programs of the JCC
in Washington. The display,
covering the immigration years
1800-1915, will continue through
Sept. 30 at the Center in West
Palm Beach.
Following the opening of the
exhibition and in conjunction
with the Israel Government
Tourist Office, the Center
sponsored a "Florida Visits
Israel" program. The concert
featured Zmira Henn, who
recently completed a tour of
Europe and Canada and
presented an unusual program of
international songs in ten
languages. A Sabra, Ms. Henn's
repertoire reflects the many
ethnic and immigrant groups
that make up Israel's society.
"Both Israel and America are
immigrant societies," said
program coordinator Reuven
Harly of the Israel Government
Tourist Office, "and our program
series emphasizes this similarity
and is, perhaps, why Israeli
performers prove to be so in-
teresting to American audien-
ces."
Everyone is invited to view the
Exhibit at the Jewish Com-
munity Center, 2415 Okeechobee
Blvd., West Palm Beach (at the

Hope in the Middle East
It is almost mind-boggling to be hopeful about the
Middle East. Nevertheless, some things have been oc-
curring there of late that would have been impossible even
one year ago.
One is the opening of the border between Israel and
Lebanon, thus allowing limited numbers of Lebanese to
escape the brutal military and economic consequences of
the civil war now tearing that country to shreds.
Indeed, there was a report early this week of the secret
trip by two rightist Christian leaders to Israel to discuss
the possibility of assistance to them against a total Syrian
takeover of Lebanon.
This must be seen against the backdrop of yet another
unexpected occurrence: the planned opening of a check-
point on the Golan Heights to allow Druze families from
Israel and Syria to visit with each other.
The world of Syria's President Hafez Assad would
simply have refused to consider such a plan even one year
ago.
Then there is the rotating appointment of a Libyan as
president of the Security Council when the United Nations
begins its Fall session this month.
Enemies Take Same Position
Israel has denounced the appointment on the basis that
Libya was behind the hijacking of an Air France plane to
Uganda in June.
But, wonder of wonders, Egypt joined the attack against
the Libyan appointment, citing a statement in a Kuwaiti
newspaper, A-Siyasseh, that documented Col. Qadaffi's
role in the hijacking with George Habash, leader of the
PFLP.
Egypt, of course, had in mind its own hijacking incident
last week of a domestic airline flight from Cairo to Luxor
which the Egyptians also charge was the handiwork of
Libya's strongman.
These may be straws in the wind, but they are straws and
a wind that would not have blown in anybody's imagination
until now, when the facts, strange as they seem, speak for
themselves.
Chirac Sent Home
The departure of Jacques Chirac as Premier of France
should be cause for no surprise. Chirac, an inveterate
Gaullist, was the vestige of stern right-wing attitudes
inspired by Charles De Gaulle in French national life.
As a last survivor in high office of the view that France
must be central to the destiny of Europe, and at no matter
what cost to France's traditional friends, Chirac pursued
the diplomacy of a zealot without a source of real power.
President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, in firing Chirac,
demonstrated it was he and not his former Premier, who
indeed tried to carry on the business of France, both
domestic and foreign, as if there were no one else above him
or at the helm of the nation.
Chirac's departure may mean a loosening of Chirac's
Gaullism and a return to more traditional French
diplomacy. In terms of Israel, this may mean a softening of
the Quai d'Orsay's hard anti-Israel line with its knuckling
under to the Arabs and their oil-rich lands at every instant. .
We say may. On the other hand, it may not. What really
occurred with the firing of Chirac was a statement by
Giscard that he was boss, not the Premier. A possible
softening of French attitudes is only a secondary
possibility.
New Life for Yiddish
The first World Conference in Israel for Yiddish and
Jewish Culture should provide a welcome revitalization for
Yiddish, a language whose death has all too often been
prematurely reported. The fact that 500 delegates from
throughout the world attended the conference and that
2,000 persons attended the opening session should be proof
that Yiddish is still alive and kicking.
The holding of the conference in Jerusalem and the
support it received from the government of Israel is of more
than passing importance.

Mafia and Our Community
Friday, September 10, 1976
Volume 2
16ELUL5736
Number 19
WASHINGTON On July
28, Mafia mobster John Roselli
set out for the golf course. He
never made it. His associates
notified us that he had vanished.
Five years ago, we in-
vestigated Roselli's role in the
CIA plot to assassinate Cuban
Premier Fidel Castro. Roselli
found that we protected our
sources. He came to trust us. We
were the only newsmen he would
talk to. That's why his associates
called us about his disap-
pearance.
WE BROKE the story here on
ABC that Roselli was missing. A
few days later, his body was
found, stuffed into an oil drum,
near North Miami Beach.
Three Miami detectives
recently flew to Washington
looking for clues that might lead
to Roselli's killers. They got the
runaround. The FBI gave them
no help. The Senate Intelligence
Committee refused to let them
see Roselli's latest testimony. It
is stamped "Top Secret"
We can report what he said.
Roselli testified that he believed
Fidel Castro was responsible for
John F. Kennedy's assassination.
It was his first reaction, Roselli
said, upon learning that Kennedy
had been killed.
ROSELLI BELIEVED that
Castro had retaliated for the
attempts upon his own life. But
Roselli insisted that he had no
evidence, that he was merely
giving his own opinion.
He was so guarded in his
testimony that Sens. Howard
Baker and Richard Schweikei
accused him of holding back
information.
The senators now fear that
Roselli's murder may have been
linked to the Castro caper.
WE HAVE learned that
Roselli was not the retired,
inactive mobster he pretended to
be. He was deeply involved in
financial swindles in southern
Florida.
&
He had also antagonized some
powerful mobsters by talking too
much to the government. It looks
as if his killing was a gangland
execution.
The Central Intelligence
Agency, meanwhile, has given up
its efforts to assassinate Fidel
Castro. The last attempt was
made in 1963. Yet the plotting
ngainst Castro is still going on.
As late as last May, a group of
Cubans in Miami conspired to kill
Castro while he was visiting
Mexico City. Intelligence sources
say the plotters belonged to a
terrorist group called the "Prag-
matistas." But they have no
. connection with the CIA.
KIM's comeuppance: Kim II
Sung, the North Korean leader,
has apologized for the murder of
two American officers. They were
beaten to death by axe-wielding
North Korean guards. Kim said
the slaying was "regretful."
It wasn't much of an apology
and the United States rejected it!
But it was the first apology Kim
has ever made to the United
States.
WHAT CAUSED him to back
down? Here's the iaaide etory:
Communist China site heavily on
North Korea's northern border.
Kimcan't make a move,
therefore, without consulting
Peking. ^
c.I?t*..U* w~k- Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger met with
Huang Chen, who heads the
Chinese Communist mission in
Washington. Kissinger asked the
Chinese to use their influence to
cool the crisis.
Apparently, Kim received the
word from Peking. He im-
mediately sent a personal
message to the United Nations
commander, backing down.

"ALTHOUGH terrorists claim
to represent the people, they are
in fact a self-proclaimed elite
which has set itself above politics
and above responsibility to
anyone. Most terrorists are not
motivated by political
! programs."
Rustin said that while suc-
cessful democratic revolutions
have been ushered in by violence,
"they are the exceptions." The
attitude of democratic
revolutionaries is "entirely
different from that of terrorists,"
he added.
"It is not true, as is sometimes
contended, that one man's
freedom fighter is another man's
terrorist."
THE MODERN terrorist is
not a revolutionary "but a
gangster," Rustin wrote.
'Terrorists reject the possibility
that their political goals might be
achieved by means other than
violence.
"They will turn on any of their
own gang who rejects terrorism
and seeks peaceful change.
Consequently, it is almost always
true that terrorists do not become
responsible and respectable
rulers if they gain power."
Nuclear Power Plants
Endorsed By Cabinet
JERUSALEM (JTA) The first step toward the
establishment of two nuclear power plants for civilian use in
Israel in cooperation with the United States government was
endorsed by the Cabinet here.
The Israeli Ambassador in Washington, Simcha Dinitz,
was authorized to initial a $2 billion draft agreement with the
U.S. aimed at the construction of the plants with an aggregate
capacity of 1,970 megawatts.
THE AGREEMENT is for 40 years. The first plant is
scheduled tc be completed in the early 1980s. The agreement
allows the Israel Electric Corp. to enter into practical
negotiations with various American manufacturers who will
supply part of the equipment for the projected plants.
The two nuclear power plants were promised by former
President Nixon when he visited the Middle East in June, 1974.
He told both Israel and Egypt at that time that the U.S. would
supply them with nuclear reactors in what was regarded as an
inducement for them to continue their disengagement of forces
in the Sinai. Egypt has already signed a letter of intent to buy a
reactor from the U.S.

Center Stores Vital Information on Holocaust
NEW YORK A high school
student who is doing a term
paper on the Holocaust, a
graduate student writing his dis-
sertation on concentration
camps, a psychiatrist who is
measuring the effect of hunger on
a human and a group of black
students from the Bedford-Stuy-
vesant section of Brooklyn who
are studying opression all are
visitors to the Center for Holo-
caust Studies temporarily located
in the Yeshiva of Flatbush in
Brooklyn, New York.
They say they come here
because they can find under one
roof the oral and visual aids and
documentation exclusively
devoted to the Holnmn**
HERE ALREADY are 1.000
hours of taped interviews with
survivors on cassettes. Here are
slides and movies. Here are
diaries,' letters of deportation,
posters, photographs, charts, and
here, too, are (he terrible physical
reminders: clothes worn by camp
inmates.
Most of the documents are
tragic indeed. There is a World
War II request from a woman in
Belgium to the U.S. government
requesting that she and her
husband be allowed to enter
America to be reunited with their
daughter. The request was
denied; the father and mothei
perished. But the girl in the U.S.
survived, married, and recently
visited the Holocaust Center, as
did her son.
The Center's founder and
director herself a survivor and
now scholar and professor of
Judaic Studies at Brooklyn
College Dr. Yaffa Eliach, said
that when working with her
students in a college course on
the Holocaust, she began to real-
,ize that what was needed was
one central documentation and
research facility where not only
her students, but thousands of
others could easily obtain a
visual and oral history of the
Holocaust from documentation,
books, music and art work and
"not have to jump from one
library to ane* her.
ENCOURAGED BY Dean
Ethyle Wolf, dean of the School
of Humanities at Brooklyn
College, Professor Yehuda Bauer
of the Institute of Contemporary
Jewry of the Hebrew University,
Yad Vashem in Israel and the
Yeshiva of Flatbush, she em-
barked on recording on tape the
story of the Holocaust as told by
its survivors. And time was of
the essence. Born in Vilna in
1937, she pointed out that her
own age group is the youngest
which can vividly recall the terror
of that era.
In the U.S. alone, there mu jt
be thousands of survivors with
stories, diaries and documents
which should be heard and
recorded, "so that the world doe;
not forget," added Dr. Eliach
who is an author and playwright
and who has written about the
tragedy that befell Jews in World
War II.
But it was not just the sur-
vivors that she wants to record in
this living memorial which she
hopes some day will take its place
alongside the great institutes of
Holocaust research such as those
'n Paris, Copenhagen and Yad
'ashem.
Dr. Eliach explained that the
Holocaust can be morbid and
"You get the idea that everyone
hated us. But there wan the
righteous among the nations and
we am trying to locate every
niece of material to show that
some did aid the victims."
FOR INSTANCE, the archives
of this research institute in
Brooklyn has a special diary. Its
recordings, according to the
Center, begin when a Jewish girl
escaped from one concentration
camp, was picked up by the Nazis
again, escaped a second time, and
was found unconscious in a ditch
by a group of British POWs.
The prisoners picked her up
and hid her in their compound.
One POW, Willy, kept a diary
describing life in the Prisoner of
War camp and the aid they gave
the Jewish girl. Both were vic-
tims. But historians can see from
the diary that while the English
were protected by the Geneva
Convention, the Jew was con-
sidered sub-human.
After the war, that very same
girl married in America and her
husband went on to become a
judge. She herself is active in
Brooklyn political and civic
affairs.
She is Hannah Rigler, now a
member of the Center's advisory
board, which is headed by Allen
Bodner, a Manhattan attorney,
and which has a distinguished
group of rabbis, scholars, lay
leaders and writers.
WHEN MRS. RIGLER S
husband was named a Family
Court Judge, Willy, the British
POW, saw the appointment story
in a newspaper in Great Britain
and sent the diary to her, with an
enclosed invitation. Mrs. Rigler
later flew to the United Kingdom
and she and the British POWs
held a reunion.
Another group which the
documentation and research
facility plans to interview and
record on tape is especially
significant in this, the Bicen-
tennial Year of the United States.
Dr. Eliach and her staff, which
includes many volunteers
some survivors, some children of
survivors, and others have
begun to interview thousands of
American GIs who liberated the
concentration camps, to get their
historic roles and reactions.
"American soldiers," say
many survivors, "helped them in
many cases above and beyond
the call of duty" and this help has
been fof* the most part undoc-
adding, "I want to show the
public school children, for in-
stance, what the GIs did for
oppressed people and introduce
Holocaust studies to young
people."
FEW HAVE ever spoken to
any of these American soldiers
before, and helping the Center is
the work of Col. Walter J. Felenz,
the American liberator of
Dachau. Under his direction,
specially prepared questionnaires
were sent to the 1,000 members of
his Rainbow Division who
liberated Dachau and to
American soldiers all over the
U.S. Yad Vashem itself is in-
terested in this project since it
can only be carried out in the
United States.
It is from these GIs and
survivors that the Holocaust
Center hooes also to obtain
artifacts and documents, and
paintings which will be stored in
the future Museum and Per-
forming Arts Center which the
Center plans to build.
Moreover, the Center also
notes that little if any research
has been recorded on the effect of
the Holocaust on the Hasidic
community. It points out, too,
that "the Holocaust is presented
as a totally Ashkenazic tragedy,
yet a large percentage of the
Sephardic Jewish community of
Greece was destroyed during
World War II."
THE CENTER reaches out to
the children of the survivors; the
American youths who want to
know both the historical and
emotional aspects of the tragedy
of the six million. There is the
teenager who took Dr. Eliach's
Holocaust course in Brooklyn
College and who later came to the
Center because she wanted "to
find out why my mother screams
at night and has nightmares."
But besides the academic
study and the housing of tapes
and documents, the Center wants
to be that living memorial where
exhibitions, lectures and displays
can take place. And it is on its
way. Beate Klarsfeld, the world
renowned anti-Nazi crusader, has
talked at the Center and Elie
Wiesel, author and playwright,
will give a spring lecture.
One of the most important
tasks at the Center is to develop
umented* declared Dr. Eliach*. educational materials and

he hoped the conference would

a Yiddish theater.
"If there are plans, I am sure
funds will be available to carry

Dr. Judah J. Shapiro, pres-
ident of the Labor Zionist
Alliance in the United States,
and another member of the large
U.S. delegation, said he saw the
conference as recognition given
to Yiddish culture by its sister
culture, Hebrew, and by Israel.
NOTING THAT world Jewry
has placed I srael on the top of its
priorities, Shapiro stressed that
cultural survival must be
regarded as the next priority. He
said the centrality of Israel
creates a situation that world
Jewry will take up any hint from
Jerusalem.

"The conference in Jerusalem,
sanctioned by the Minister of
Culture of Israel, is apt to bring
about a change of attitude
toward Yiddish," Shapiro said.
"Jerusalem has to be the basis
for all activities of Yiddish."
He called on the Israeli
government and the Jewish
Agency, which are interested in
promoting Jewish education in
the diaspora, to provide teachers,
typesetters, secretaries and
librarians "who can be sent to
Jewish communities as
shlichim."
SHAPIRO SAID he wants the
conference to bring about a
recognition among world Jewry
that the Israeli cultural leader-
ship supports the Yiddish
culture.
"We want the conference to set
up plans for the translation of
Yiddish literature into English,
Spanish and other languages so
that people will understand the
Jewish life in Eastern Europe
through the generations," he
declared.
Itzhak Korn, head of the
Israeli branch of the World
Jewish Congress and head of the
organizing committee for the
conference on Yiddish, said he
hoped the event would
strengthen Yiddish culture
throughout the world, bring
nearer the cultures of Yiddish
and Hebrew, and set up plans for
strengthening Jewish education.
HE SAID he regards it as an
important sign that the Minister
of Culture has included Yiddish
as a language to be studied in
Israel's secondary schools.
Korn also wants the conference
to establish a national Yiddish
theater centered in Israel but
performing throughout the
world, and wants to increase
academic research in Yiddish
culture.
He said Yiddish should become
once again the major tool to help
fight against assimilation.
The struggle to retain the
Yiddish language and its cultural
ramifications was dealt a body
blow with the massacre of
European Jewry during World
War II and the suppression
generally of Jewish culture
both Yiddish and Hebrew in
Eastern Europe under the Soviet
and Soviet-sponsored regimes."
YIDDISH HAD been dying in
many countries, especially in the
United States, because it was
viewed as a badge of the im-
migrant.

Jewish Youths Evacuated
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
group of 23 Jewish youths from
Kiryat Arba, the Jewish settle-
ment adjacent to Hebron, were
evacuated by Israeli police when
they tried to hold a prayer
meeting in a building in Hebron
which served as a Hadassah
medical center before the 1929
Arab massacre of Jews in that
dty.
The youths, some of them
yeshiva students, did not resist
the police.
THE ATTEMPTED prayer
meeting was the latest in a series
of attempts to resume the Jewish
presence in downtown Hebron
Earlier this week there was a
mass rally in commemoration of
the massacre in which 63 Jews
were killed.
Charge
Soviet
Lecturer
Is Bigoted
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) B'nai B'rith has
cited the activities of an
official Soviet propa-
gandist, a professional
public lecturer and writer,
who accuses Zionists of
being anti-Semites bent on
world domination as
evidence that "anti-
Semitism remains very
much a Kremlin political
ploy."
David M. Blumberg,
B'nai B'rith president,
charged Dr. Valery Yemel-
yanov, an academician and
a member of the "Znanie
(Knowledge) Society," with
"promoting uninhibited
anti-Semitism" in his
government-sanctioned
lectures and writings.
THE ZNANIE Society con-
ducts public lectures, a popular
activity in the Soviet Union.
According to a Communist Party
journal, some 20 million lectures
reached more than a billion
persons in a single year.
Blumberg said that Yemel-
yanov's career as a lecturer is
sponsored by the Central Com-
mittee of the Soviet Communist
Party, giving "an official im-
primatur to his rabid anti-
Semitism.''
Yemelyanov, posing as a
"scientific specialist" on
Zionism, has described the
Zionist movement as possessing
"strictly secret frameworks" that
include "almost all the presidents
and parliaments of the developed
capitalist countries, and
especially those of the U.S."
BLUMBERG SAID that in
"similar absurdities,-'
Yemelyanov claimed that "80
percent of the economy and 95
percent of the mass media in the
capitalist world are Zionist-
owned," that Zionists are the
secret owners of foreign oil com-
panies in Arab lands, and that
the Torah was the "blackest
book" ever written.
Blumberg, who said B'nai
B'rith would protest Yemel-
yanov's lectures and writings to
the Soviet Ambassador, noted
that the Russian's lectures were
exposed by the Soviet Jewish
underground.
Recent Soviet emigres, Blum-
berg stated, say that lectures
"are a powerful force in the
Soviet Union, much more
believable than the press."
Blumberg also said that Yemel-
yanov 's propaganda was spot-
lighted by the Palestine
Liberation Organization in an
interview published by "Falastin
al-Thawra" (Free Palestine), in
Beirut.
IN THE interview, Yemel-
yanov claimed that "Russian
Zionists" were conducting "anti-
Semitic terror designed to
provoke Jews to emigrate."
Zionism and anti-Semitism are
"two sides of the same medal,"
he said. Yemelyanov called for a
world coalition, led by the
Soviets and Arabs to combat
Zionism. The struggle would be
"extraordinarily bloody," he
predicted.

The officials reported that a former resident of tU

He managed to get back to his village and from there

Meanwhile, Israeli security forces made plans to foQ ]

SECURITY SOURCES said there were indications, I

said. "It bears respon-

IHERZOG DECLARED that

ifi and Libya "in planning,
oiting and cooperating with
terrorist movements and
international terrorist
nts not only against
el but also against other
countries in North Africa, in the
Middle East and throughout the
world is common knowledge.
"Indeed Col. Qaddafi prided
himself on this fact in his ad-
dress to the conference of non-
aligned countries in Colombo on
Aug. 18, 1976. It is the official
and systematic policy of the
President of Libya to initiate and
finance from the considerable
income available from oil sales,
acts of assassination, subversion,
conspiracy and sabotage in
countries outside Libya. These
acts are carried out in blatant
violation of the Charter of the
United Nations and the prin-
2,000 atBeigin Meeting
ciples of international law."
Herzog noted that even
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat
confirmed Libyan involvement in
the Entebbe hijacking in an
interview 10 days ago with the
Kuwaiti newspaper, "A-
Siyasseh."
Herzog quoted the paper as
saying that Sadat declared that
the hijacking of the French plane
to Entebbe was arranged at a
meeting which took place bet-
ween Qaddafi and George
Habash, the leader of the PFLP,
and that Qaddafi "paid the
money and smuggled the arms to
Athens in Libyan diplomatic
pouches, and that the Libyan
Embassy later turned over the
arms to the hijackers."

U.S. Won't Open
'Christian' Embassy
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department said
here it has "no intention" of opening an Embassy or any
office" in Christian-controlled areas of Lebanon.
Spokesman Robert Funseth made that assertion hen he
was asked whether U.S. diplomats Robert Houghton and David
Mack, who had conferred earner this week withtCfettan
leaders, including Presidentelect Ehas Sarkis, had been asked
to establish a U.S. mission in Christian-held territory.
FUNSETH SAID the diplomats had returned to Cyprus
but he has not yet had a report on their consultations in
Lebanon.
Houghton and Mack had arrived in Lebanon hy P "JJ
Cyprus S Jonieh, the unofficial capital of Lebanon s Christum
endave, because there was no other way for American
diplomats to reach that sector of Lebanon.
Funseth said earlier in the week that the U.S. has "no
soeciffc pUn" for the settlement of Lebanon's continuing crisis
a^vSomusly denied implications that the U.S. may favor a
division of Lebanon by partition or zones.
HE SAID the U.S. reaffirms ^V^flTT^'S^
partition or de facto partition," and that the U.S. reattirms
K kstands for Lebaneae sovereignty, national cohesion and
unity.
He needs the riches, actual and
potential, of Asia and Africa and
the Middle East, and in this
sense he shares with Muhammad
Ali the Jewish (Israeli) nettle,
which periodically disrupts the
flow through the funnel. The
Jewish (Israeli) nettle is a
growing impediment to a two-
way expediency. It is a question
of morality interposed between
an otherwise fairly perfect
Occidental-Third World circuit of
self-serving greed.
The black man, or any other
Third Worlder, understands this
sudden white dependency upon
him very well indeed. As a victim
of racial oppression, he also
understands anti-Semitism very
well indeed.
AND SO, he preaches it
himself to aggravate the white
westerner's dilemma to his own
political and economic ad-
vantage.
What the likes of a black Mu-
hammad Ali fails to recognize
is that his marriage to non-black
Third Worlders is a delusion.
Christianity plagued him in
Africa by launching a war of
cultural genocide against him
and helping to pave the way for
white western colonialism in his
garden in the name of God.
Christianity failed him when he
was torn from his garden.
Christianity failed him in the
west by remaining silent in the
face of his slavery and op-
pression.
IN TURNING to Islam, the
black man believes that he has
found a solution to his spiritual
needs and his rootlessness in
western civilization. After all, he
reasons, is not Islam itself a
victim of white western
(Christian) supremacy?
Muhammad Ali's shedding of
his name, Caashia Clay, is a
perfect example of this delusion.
He has yet to discover, if only
because he talks too much and
never listens, what other black
men who have gone this route are
already beginning to discover.
Islam has merely given him yet
a second culture not his own and
cast him into the maw of op-
pressors far more flamboyant
than his Christian enemies ever
were at their worst. (Ask any
Lebanese about that.)
UNDERSTOOD in these
terms, it should be clear that
Ali's anti-Semitic remark was
made from the point of view of
the Third Worlder not yet aware
that his second marriage must
end in divorce, too. It was made
from the point of view that the
west is the dominant enemy.
In this sense, Jews once again
stand upon the ramparts all
alone, much as they did in 1933 in
Germany. They stand upon the
ramparts as surrogates for the
white westerner, the first wave of
shock troops in an inevitable
confrontation with the Alia of the
world.
And what is so desperately sad
is that once again Europe, and
that once again America, do not
see that it is they themselves who
are the primary targets.
WHEN AT Sri Lanka, the
nonaligned inveighed against
Israel, it is against the white
westerner that they inveighed.
When the United Nations
equated Zionism with racism, it
was white western realpolitik,
white western hultur they were
really attacking.
Because white westerners, in
their bigotry and ignorance, fail
to understand it, this is why the
Ali interview went out upon the
airwaves unhindered as balm to
their expedient souls, who see
only Jews as the targets, not
themselves, who see the im-
pediment to their expediency
under happy assault, who see
others (Third Worlders) doing
their own dirty work for them.
i
The hypocritical silence of
WINZ (or the arrogance of a
radio network) sees it in no other
way. It smirks gleefully, silently
with the simian "lord of the
ring," who slouches slowly
toward some Bethlehem in his
own dim mind.

What Gets Me Peeved
By Rabbi Max L. Forman
Temple Emanu-El of Palm Beach
Every rabbi, since the days of
Moshe Rabbenu, is well aware ot
the fact that he is not immune to
fault-finding and criticism. On
the other hand, very few Jews
sense that every rabbi is
disturbed by his Jews' short-
comings and has his own pet
peeves against them.
In one of the Gilbert and
Sullivan operettas there is drawn
up a catalogue of people who
would not be missed if they were
"liquidated." I do not propose
the aria's extreme penalty, but I
do wish to add a few persons to
its list.
The first is the man who says,
during a campaign, "Look what a
niggardly contribution Mr. X has
made!" In this way he is at-
tempting to divert attention from
his own inadequate response,
while developing a sense of self-
righteousness in the process.
Anti-Semitism is not the only
, smokescreen for shielding one's
failings.
THEN WE MIGHT add the
individual who seeks the honor of
communal or institutional office,
but is unwilling or unprepared to
accept the responsibilities of that
office.
And how about the Jew who
divides his fellow Jews into two
classes: "my kind" and "all
others"?
High on my list of pet peeves
are the persons who. having
found an acceptable slogan or
formula 40 years ago, refuse to be
moved by the great changes that
have taken place during that
interval and to reexamine their
initial position. Bourbonlike,
they forget nothing and learn
nothing.
Then there is the man or
woman who always translates
differences of opinion about
policy or procedures expressed at
meetings into personal an-
tagonism and vendetta.
You might also include in this
list the visitor who makes his in-
frequent visit to the synagogue a
social occasion, and expects to
find or receive a "homecoming"
party.
ANOTHER SERIOUS peeve
of mine is the parent who is con-
cerned that his child receive a
properly balanced diet and the
right vitamins, but is quite in-
different about what enters the
heart and mind of his offspring.
I would include also the Jew
who exudes superiority to every-
one else, whether it be because he
scrupulously observes all the
commandments or because he
has "emancipated" himself from
Jewish disciplines.
Among these is the greatest
culprit of them all: the Jew who
says, "After all, Jews bring their
troubles upon themselves." Of
course, what he means is that
"other Jews" do, whereas he
singlehandedly upholds our fair
name! But even more repre-
hensible is the total misunder-
standing of the nature of the
Jewish problem, which leads to
the exoneration of the anti-
Semite and the indictment of the
Jew, as implied in his rash and
false statement.
At this High Holiday time o"
introspection and self-analysis
please ask yourself truthfully
do you "make" my list of Pe'
Peeves, or your own rabbi's?

SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
ki tavo
"And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of
the land, which Thou, O Lord, hast given me" (Deut.
26.10).
Ki Tavo "And it shall be, when thou art come in into the
land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance
. thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the ground
. and shalt go unto the place which the Lord thy God
shall choose to cause His name to dwell there. And the
priest shall take the basket out of thy hand, and set it down
before the altar of the Lord thy God and thou shalt set
it down before the Lord thy God, and worship before the
Lord thy God When thou hast made an end of tithing
all the tithe of thine increase in the third year thou shalt
say before the Lord thy God: 'I have put away the hallowed
things out of my house, and also have given them unto the
Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the
widow ... 1 have not transgressed any of Thy command-
ments, neither have I forgotten them' (Deuteronomy
26.1-13). "And it shall be when ye are passed over the
Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command
you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaster them
with plaster And thou shalt write upon the stones all
the words of this law very plainly" (Deuteronomy 27.4-8).
The portion goes on to treat of the blessings and curses
with which Moses charged the children of Israel; for further
emphasis, the covenant made in mount Horeb is reaffirmed
in Moab.
Inside Judaica
By Dr. Frederick Lachman
Q. What does "Palestine"
mean?
A. Palestine is one of the
names of the territory known as
the Land of Israel or the Holy
Land, says the Encyclopaedia
Judaica. The name "Palestine"
was originally an adjective
derived from Hebrew "peleshet."
It is first mentioned by
Herodotus as "the Philistine
Syria."
Subsequently, the name was
shortened and the adjective
"Palestine" became a proper
noun. Philo identifies
"Palaistinei" with Biblical
Canaan. The name was revived
by the Roman Emperor Hadrian,
who applied it to the whole
country in order to eradicate the
name Judea.
In Talmudic literature Pales-
tine is used as the name of a
Roman province, adjoining the
Synagogues in
Palm Beach County

REAL AMERICA, by Ben J. Wattenberg. Revised edition
ih in introduction by Richard M. Scammon. Capricorn Books
." p Putnam's Sons, New York. Paperback. 361 pp., $3.50.
i BEN WATTERBERG did not have a single other fact to
I'm his latest version of "The Real America" he would be hailed
having performed a monumental favor for truth and light in
oting outricn America does have poor Jews who fear crime in
, s|ums in which they exist and they require help like others in
werty.
The Real America," however, has myriad facts beyond those
ews and is. as someone has said, "a brilliant look at the facts
nst the myths of American life." His bits about poor Jews are
cially essential facts that should be handy at the least to every
> worker to quote directly to those who think all Jews are rich
(powerful.
WRITING ON crime, Wattenberg says: "triple-padlocked
Irs, drug addicts, muggings, rape, shakedown of school children
Hunch money are enough to drive many of the best intentioned
anites into the calmer suburbs. For the elderly, and often
nseless, the tragedy is compounded. Many elderly Orthodox
j in New York no longer go to late afternoon services because
I must return home after dark and fear mugging, beating, and
niliation."
Discussing "Black Progress and Liberal Rhetoric," Wat-
erg asks how does "a group" an ethnic group, a religious
up, a racial group make "progress" and adds wisely:
"IS 'PROGRESS' defined as a situation when a whole group is
i moving up and out of poverty or when only a substantial
on moves up and out? If the whole group must go up and out,
neven the Jews haven't made it yet.
"One of the reasons the American Jewish Committee lobbies
i Social Security rates is because such a high proportion of
riy Jews are still in poverty despite the generally
sledged success story of American Jews. What is true for the
i it true as well for the Irish and the WASPS much success
I some failure, each chronicled in our literature, our politics, and
[industry."
WATTENBERG HAS a pungent footnote in discussing a
tionnaire on women's liberation. Noting that 74 percent of
i women think that "having a loving husband who is able
ke care of me is much more important to me than making it on
n," Wattenberg points out:
These feelings do not seem to be restricted to American
len. In Israel, a land where sexual equality has long been a well
Wished and certainly well publicized doctrine, a survey team of
~ r University sociologists found that 76 percent of married
from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv responded affirmatively to
statement: 'A good mother and a good homemaker is a
n's most noble goal.' Which may prove what has long been
cted: American females are nothing but Jewish mothers in
) wagons."
WATTENBERG, who has written extensively on
nographic and political matters, is one of those few
ningtonians who goes behind the prefab platitudes concocted
[publicity people to fit a politician's policy.

IN EVER greater numbers, people are voicing
opposition to the busing of public school pupils as
a means of ending segregation in the classrooms.
Here, for example, is a JTA dispatch reporting
that The Jewish Rights Council has written
Attorney General Edward H. Levi from New
York indicating the Jewish Council's disap-
pointment over Levi's decision not to arrange for
the U.S. Department of Justice to take action on
the tangled and volatile Boston school busing
problem at this time.
Reading the JTA dispatch, one concludes that
the New York Jewish unit maintains that there is
the dire possibility that when students are bused,
some of the pupils "are going to be punished for
the sins of others."
THIS OPINION is, of course, not shared by
hundreds of Jewish community relations leaders
and workers who have, with sad hearts, witnessed
the politicizing of the school busing issue.
Veterans in the field of civil rights respect the
U.S. Supreme Court ruling of 1954 and view with
dismay the current tendency to throw roadblocks
in the path of the desegregation process.
How such delaying tactics have affected
Boston, where the quarrel over busing is perhaps
more severe than anywhere in the nation, may be
gleaned by taking note of recent Boston
developments. Most dramatic was the bold
decision of Rev. Robert W. Golledge, vicar of the
Old North Church in Boston the Paul Revere
lantern church to use the occasion of Queen
Elizabeth's visit to that American shrine for a
frank sermonic exposure of the bitter truth about
Boston's school busing fight.
WITH THE British monarch and her consort
worshiping a few feet from his pulpit, the vicar
wondered aloud if justice and mercy were still to
be found in the historic city.
"Boston has been and is today a great city of
culture, commerce, and diverse and warm neigh-
borhoods," he declared. "But we have more than
our share of false men and women who are called
leaders, but are actually cowards running away
from the frightening challenge of reconciliation
and accommodation. They are loud and cruel
people who think themselves brave, but they are
weaklings unable to compromise and unwilling to
confront the complex struggles necessary to
achieve reconciliation They are petty people
who accept their petty acclaim so easily won by
petty slogans They are not brave, no matter
what verbal firepower they can order up, for
brave people are revealed by the difficulty and
importance of the tasks they confront, not by the
sound and fury they cause."
THE VICAR'S frontal attack on the em-
ployment of the "forced" busing issue for political
advancement was thoroughly justified. Not long
before Qu~>n Elizabeth came to Boston, a special
Boston Committee On Violence, after intensive
study, had reviewed the events leading up to the
modern revolution in the Hub the revolution
against the Supreme Court's rulings on school
segregation, against a federal judge's often
heavyhanded but technically justified efforts to
bring a rebellious School Committee into line.
The special committee demanded that Mayor
Kevin H. White exert more effective leadership.
No sooner did he move on that challenge than a
new threat to peace and order visited the city.
THIS THREAT came in the form of the
distribution of hundreds of pamphlets by the
Police Patrolmen's Association depicting Boston
as "Crime City, USA" and recommending to
thousands perhaps Queen Elizabeth herself
to stay away from the city. In short, the ap-
pointed guardians of the law were, in a sense,
abdicating in favor of chaos.
Let the nation know then that there are noxious
ingredients in Boston's civic cauldron today. And
the frightful mess has been concocted largely by
those who fume about "forced" busing as if it'
were a catastrophe more to be feared than e
nuclear attack by Martians.

HAIFA For the first time in five years the
year 1976 will show a decline in the trend of
emigration out of Israel a trend which had hit a
peak in 1975. It is estimated that 250,000 and
perhaps as many as 300,000 persons have left
Israel since the establishment of the State.
We live in an age of shifting populations, and
while there has been a marked emigration from
the Arab states too, from Egypt and Jordan and
from Lebanon even before the civil war, this fact
should be no consolation to us.
ISRAEL IS admittedly concerned by these
emigres, or yordim as they are called in Hebrew.
In a recent address Prime Minister Rabin referred
to them as "cowardly dropouts." His words were
perhaps too harsh. The reasons for the departures
are many and varied, but it is doubtful that fear
played any major role.
The larger number of yordim give economic
reasons. Taxes are high and it's not always easy
to make ends meet. Daily life can be a struggle.
An exaggerated emphasis on egalitarianism
removes much of the incentive from the more
talented, more skilled, more educated classes.
Many of the newer immigrants find it difficult
to adjust to a new language and new customs.
THERE IS no doubt that a number of those
who leave do so for reasons of personal instability
and difficulty in adjusting to life anywhere. They
carry their problems with them wherever they go,
but since they cannot admit this they usually
leave in a storm of accusations against Israel.
An increase in the number of native-born
Israelis who leave is ascribed to an urge for ad-
venture, a desire to see the world They suffer
from a kind of national claustrophobia in the
confines of a little country cut off from its neigh-
bors on all side.).
SOME OF the yordim have made good and a
few have even become millionaires in the United
States. The great majority are struggling no less
than they did in Israel. They continue to call
themselves Israelis. They teach their children
Hebrew. They all talk of going back at some
indeterminate time in the future.
What should be done to encourage and help
them to return? The suggestion that financial and
other incentives be offered has brought a sharp
reaction that this will be viewed as a prize given
to those who left. Such help will provide tacit
encouragement to others who may think: let's
quit and try life in New York. If it doesn't work
out we can always get liberal help to bring us
back. The fact is that they are straggling back. It
is estimated that about 7,000 will return this year.
American Jews do not look kindly upon the ex-
Israelis in their midst. There is a stigma attached
to abandoning the country. But in all fairness the
question must be asked: why should we criticize a
Jew who has come to Israel, tried the life, and
then left any more than we should criticize one
who looks on from afar and has not even made the
effort to come here? On sober thought, who
should be criticized more?
