\e Question of Representation
An Open Letter
On the Daoud Affair
We along with all civilized people were shocked and
outraged by the callous and precipitous release of PLO terrorist
Abu Daoud by a French court, and with the obvious
acquiescence of the French Government.
In refusing to honor Israel's and Germany's request for ex-
tradition under a Franco-Israeli treaty, the French government
not only exhibited cynical disregard for international law and
morality but alao made a mockery of France's recent signing of
the anti-terrorism treaty adopted by the Council of Europe and
its support for the development of a treaty against the taking ot
hostages approved recently by the General Assembly of th
United Nations.
Such actions only give encouragement and succor to in-
ternational terrorists who effected the Munich massacre,
planned by Abu Daoud, identified as a key leader of the Fatah
faction of PLO. We view France's act as a cowardly capitulation
to the blackmail of the Arab states and the blatant threats of the
terrorist gangs.

ry association come to be
in and widely accepted as
organized Jewish com-
ity?" Salo Baron, the
ned scholar of the Jewish
lunily offers the following
ination:
Far beyond their
lanlhropic services the
irious Jewish charitable
ipnizations performed the
{ghly significant functions

Since American Jews

ntries. each group

"Culturally, too, the

leeply divided by the

Herat U.S.A. Denies Contract
Out on Henry Kissinger
NEW YORK The
United Zionists-Revision-
ists of America, the
American section of the
Likud Party in Israel,
known as Herut U.S.A.,
this week sharply denied
that any member of the
Likud movement "could
possibly be involved in any
alleged assassination plot
against retiring Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger."
Continued on Page 5
Question of Representation
Because of the confusion about
Federations or an "official"
rather than a voluntary
association, other misconceptions
have developed particularly
around whether Federation
should represent individuals and
groups, such as synagogues and
organizations, consumers, age
groups and geographic areas.
It is therefore
neccessary to
stress that Fed-
eration is a vol-
untary organiza-
tion. It does not
"represent" any
sector of Jewish
life, organiza-
tional, idealogi-
cal, religious,
geographic or
economic. It does SCHIMELMAN
not attempt to be
an all-inclusive body in its ob-
jectives, structure and supported
programs, dealing with all types
of problems, needs and issues
affecting Jews as individuals and
in groups.
It represents and speaks for its
constituents when authorized to
do so. It is not and cannot be the
official voice" of American
Jewry on many issues and has
never taken the position that it
can or should do so.
Federations are not based on
the civic-political principle
"one man-one vote.

whose children are girls.'
ONE OF the most innovative
ceremonies is described in Lilith
magazine's Winter issue.
Sharon and Michael Strassfeld,
two of the editors of The Jewish
Catalog, developed their
ceremony to celebrate the birth of
their first child, Kayla Judith.
They decided that immersing
Kayla in a baby-sized mikva
(ritual bath) would be the ap-
propriate way for a newborn
Jewish girl to enter into the
covenant of Israel. According to
some commentators, after
Abraham's circumcision the
source of the bris for male Jews
Sarah entered the covenant by
ritual immersion.
A FEW days after her birth,
Kayla was immersed in a ceramic
container filled with bottled
spring water, as special prayers
were said by her parents,
relatives and friends.
A participant observed that
the ceremony was part of the
growing movement for "equal
rites" for women.

Camp Shalom Cooley Joins JFCS Staff
We have a stake in Israel as
Americans. Israel is the only
Middle Eastern state which can
be depended on to resist Russian
aggression and pressure. It is the
only bastion of freedom and
democracy in an Arab sea of
feudal empires and dictatorships.
Our stake as .lews is equally
clear. A free and independent
Israel is a necessity for Jewish
survival in a hostile world. Would
that a sovereign Israel had
existed when Jewish refugee
ships were turned away by the
British rulers of Palestine, turned
away to die at sea or to return to
German internment camps. Kven
nOW, anti-Semitism grows in
South America. Jews there are
already looking toward Israel as
a haven.
I .ol none of us be naive enough
in assist any "peace" move which
doesn't fit a positive democratic
definition of peace. Israel mils)
have secure borders ;ind neigh-
bors truly devoted In live with
and help one another.

Representation

life. Federation experience over
many years has demonstrated
the wisdom of developing leaders
from that cross-section of the
community. Prof. Daniel Klaznr.
one of the few scholars who has
studied division making in
Federation, offers the following
nerlinenl comments:
"By and large, the
cosnio|>olilan volunteers are
probably representative of
the more Jewishly com-
mitted elements in the
mainstream of the American
Jewish community, this
despite the fact that they are
rarely ejected to the offices
they occupy in any"
meaningful sense of the
term.
"The elections, though not
always formalities, are
usually simple means of
formally ratifying the
choices of nominating
committees, and even when
contested, are rarely con-
tested by candidates
representing seriously
different characteristics or
points of view. They are
representative because there
is a certain sameness in
American Jewry that means
dial il is difficult not to lie
prototypical. Their desires,
tastes, attitudes, interests
and educational
backgrounds probably
depart very little from the
norm among all but the
lowest income Jew."
Perhaps the best indication of
Federation success in expressing

fact of successful campaigns year

Love and Quai d'Orsay
Love, said Erich Segal in his potboiler novel, is never
having to say your're sorry. Well, we're sorry.
We're sorry about France and the craven French
submission to Arab blackmail. Does this say we no longer
love France? For the moment, we suppose, it does.
Or, at least, we are so disappointed by the Quai d'Orsay
decision to release Abu Daoud, that we'd prefer not to
think in anger about just what our feelings are. Or to mull
through our sweet memories of a walk along the Seine
with Notre Dame flickering in the reflection of the river's
waters.
Or to recall our delight in that first delicious sight of
Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
Or our sentimental attachment to our first ride through
the French countryside.
All of this must be set aside for the moment. Politics
have laid their muddy handprint on our natural in-
clinations which, if the truth be known, have long been
taxed by French expediency in its oil-soaked policy toward
Israel.
We're Reserving Judgment
Does this mean we are being swept along by the tide of a
national undertow driving American Jewry toward boy-
cotting all things French products, tourism, even sweet
and sentimental memories?
As in other boycotts of other countries in behalf of
Israel since the emergence of the Arab power bloc in the
wake of the Yom Kippur War, we tend to believe that so
strong a measure in the end defeats its own purpose.
Even the Arab boycott of Israel and of American in-
dustry doing business with Israel, or sporting American
Jews in key executive positions, seems to be slowing down
appreciably and beginning to do more harm to the Arab
cause than to Israel.
And so we reserve judgment on that one.
But we will say that the almost shameful haste in which
Daoud was taken before a French court, which released
him after only a 20-minute hearing on a legal technicality,
demonstrated that what was at stake was not French law
but a cowardly submission to Arab blackmail.
Terrorist Problem Remains
Of all the western nations, France has been the least
cooperative in the effort to combat terrorism. Of all the
western nations. France should understand at the most
that its cowardice is not paying off. Consider the case of
the Air France jet that led to the now legendary Entebbe
rascua.
France was not considered immune by the terrorists.
Well. then, if we can expect nothing from the Quai
d'Orsay in the struggling against international terrorism,
that does not mean that the rest of us must give up.
Something must be done to stop this international
lunacy t>efore another Munich, another Entebbe.
If the world, including France, which should now know
better, thinks it all ends with Jews and Israel, they will be
sorely mistaken. If only as a matter of simple expediency,
which the French seem to understand so well, they ought
to be first in line in a western move to solve the problem.
Fascell on Record: He
Protests French Action
WASHINGTON Congressman Dante Fascell (D.. Fla.),
a leading member of the House International Relations
Committee, has strongly voiced his protest over the release of
Abu Daoud by the French government.
In a statement on the floor of the House of Representatives
and in a letter to the French Ambassador in Washington.
Fascell noted that terrorism can only be eliminated through the
strong will and cooperation of all governments and civilized
people everywhere. "To give in to international terrorism is to
encourage it and condone it." he said. "Such an attitude is
unconscionable."

Number2
The outburst of outrage from
many sources with the French
Bale of Mirages to Egypt, coming
BS it did at the height of indig-
nation over that nation's release
of terrorist Abu Daoud. was good
to hear and read. One got tru-
st-rise that there was lieing taken
a moral stance by much of the
world.
Frank Mankiewkv.. speaking
to the National Council of .It-wish
Women here last week, even went
so far as to say that the real
difference in the foreign policy of
the Carter administration is that
there will be respect for human
rights. It seemed as if it already
had begun.
RIGHTEOUS indignation,
unfortunately, comes and goes
with each changing headline
describing the international scene
not to say our own personal
hangups. The death of Anthony
F.den reminds us again of the
passionate negative response of
John Foster Dulles and President
Eisenhower, not to say the Soviet
Union, to the joint Suez ad-
venture of France. Britain and
Israel, as well as the implied
threat to take military action to
halt it.
But what diplomatic language
was used officially not long after
when the Soviets destroyed the
Hungarian people's effort for
freedom or later when the Czechs
were overwhelmed by the same
forces?
Mr. Dulles' religious fervor to
protect the world from evil forces.
his policy of "brinksmanship." in
the test analysis proved as phony
as most such foreign policy state-
ments based on morality.
WE PROPERLY condemn the
terrorism of the PLO and others,
and the outcry is genuine. Yet we
seem to ignore the CIA actions or
the official terror in other parts of
Edward
the world in Brazil and Chile,
in Iraq. Iran. We approve of
sanctions against Rhodesia and
South Africa but never con-
template taking similar and
just as ineffective action
against those other nations of the
world who are violating human
rights.
Situalional ethics and
situat mnal morality are the rule
in the world and they have ever
been thus. Israel cries out with
good cause against the sale of
planes and arms to Egypt.
Jordan. Saudi Arabia. It does its
own arms business small
pieces to Chile which would seem
to be less for national defense
than for use against its own
people, patrol boats and guided
missiles to South Africa which
are on the U.S. embargo list.
The response is that if the good
guys don't sell to these nations
the bad guys will and. then, what
will happen to our defense
business?
YOU'VE READ about all
those hungry nations; well,
they're well-represented in the
gigantic total of some $300 billion
spent annually on military hard-
ware while the education, health,
housing and other amenities of
life are neglected.

French Jet Sale Strains Ties
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) -
Diplomatic circles here
have predicted that Franco-
Israeli relations, under a
severe strain because of the
release of Palestinian ter-
rorist Abu Daoud, will take
a further turn for the worse
following the announce-
ment that 200 Mirage F-l
fighter-bombers have been
sold to Egypt.
French officials an-
nounced the sale after De-
fense Minister Yvon
Bourges briefed the Cabi-
net on the deal in the pres-
ence of President Valery
discard d'Estaing.
THEY SAID 30 of the ad-
vanced combat aircraft would be
delivered to Egypt fully as-
sembled before the end of the
year and the remaining 170 would
be assembled by Egypt at an
arms factory now under con-
struction near Cairo.
Although French sources in
Slated that the 200 Mirages will
not alter the power balance in the
Middle East. Western military
observers here said the E-ls
would practically double the
strength of Egypt's front-line air
force.
The Mirages, which fly at twice
the speed of sound and are
equipped with air-to-air missiles
barely lost out to the American
E-Uiin the Selection of S standard
fighter plane by six West Euro-
pean air forces last year.
(In Washington. State De-
partment spokesman Robert
Eunseth said he didn't think
there was any connection bet-
ween the sale of the Mirages to
Egypt and the release of Daoud.)
COMING ON the heels of
Israel's vigorous protests against
the freeing of the terrorist who
Jerusalem wanted to have extra-
dited for his role in the 1972
Munich massacre, the announce-
ment of the Mirage sale to Egypt
was seen by observers here as
"piling assault on injury" with
respect to Franco-Israeli
relal ions.
Israel's Ambassador to
France. Mordechai (Jazit, was
called home for an indefinite
period for consultations.-' He
left Paris in what he called "an
Cl of protest" against the
French court's decision to free
Daoud in face of detention
requests from lioth West Ger-
many and Israel. Gaz.it departed
before the Mirage sale was an-
nounced.

Judaism and Fundamentalism
By Rabbi Harry Z. Scbectman
Congregation Anshei Sholom
Century Village,
West Palm Beach
The word "fundamentalism,"
to most religions and theo
logians, spells a static condition,
unprogressive, unyielding in
thought or opinion, irresponsive
to reason. To the Jewish way of
thinking, it has a different con-
notation. Fundamental concepts
are those upon which every
religion is founded, since
basically every religion is
founded upon a belief in a
Supreme Being.
Judaism, the religion of the
Jew, although founded on the
fundamental teachings of the
Torah, is a faith that is neverthe-
less a progressive one, even
though fundamentals and pro-
gressives are conflicting terms.
It seems to me that any
modern religion, in order to be
worthy of the term, must be able
to derive a progressive teaching
from its fundamental doctrines.
Fundamentalism must be a
concept, and not a static con-
dition. It must simply be a foun-
dation; a fountain from which the
many waters which give life to
the religions concept, derive their
life-giving force.
The prophet Micha has laid
down the foundation of any
religious faith: "It hath been told
Question: Why does a drink of
wine require a special benediction
exclusively used for such a drink
while other liquids have a general
benediction in Jewish ritual?
Answer: Such is the law as
prescribed in the Talmud
(Mishnah Rerakoth 35a). The
Talmud, in commenting on the
Mishnah tries to explain this by
stating that wine has special sig-
nificance because it satisfies and
makes a person happy.
The Midrash (Tanchuma,
Toldot 10) comments that this is
also because wine was used to
accompany sacrificial offerings
on the holy altar. It also, says
this same Midrash, helped Jacob
obtain the blessing from his
father. Isaac.
Some have added the con-
sideration that grapes alone, of
all fruits, grow in clusters which
signifies the feeling of together-
ness and unity. Others have said
that wine Ls a substance which
givaa both physical fulfillment as
well as emotional uplift. Other
juices do not provide so quick an
emotional effect. The ideal was to
serve the Almighty with both
one's physical power and
emotional sensitivity.
Missing Ingredient
By Rabbi Avrom L. Drazin.
Temple Israel of Miramar
One of the hottest topics fo.
discussion within the Jewish
community is the suc-
cess failure of contemporary
Jewish education. In fact, there
are many who place the blame for
all of the problems with our
young people at the doorstep of
our Jewish schools.
We have, therefore, I un-
derstand, begun a very elaborate
process of investigation and
study which will hopefully raise
the level of Jewish education in
our community.
May I humbly point out that
there is one ingredient which is
sorely lacking in our schools and
which we continue to neglect.
Once upon a time we went to a
Talmud Torah, a school where we
were taught Torah and Yiddish-
keit; where at least as much em-
phasis was placed on learning a
love of Torah, of God and ol
Judaism, as there was on th<
Hebrew language. Teachers were
chosen as much for their commit-
ment to Judaism as for their
skills in Hebrew and Bible.
Today we call them Hebrew
Schools, and the emphasis is on
the Hebrew language, and
achieving the skills for a Bar or
Bat Mitzvah performance. One
wonders whether we even care
whether the teacher has an
emotional commitment to
Judaism, and believes the
various aspects of Jewish history
and tradition which he is
teaching the children.
We must also recognize that
the majority of our students,
whether they attend a congre-
gational religious school or even
an all-day school; whether they
come from observant or non-
observant homes, are not really
motivated to the concept of
Torah Lishma (Torah for its Own
Sake).
We must teach our children
more than f.he skills of the syna-
gogue and communication. We
must teach our children love for
their heritage, its traditions and
observances.
This can be done only by those
who themselves reflect these
feelings and commitments in
their everyday lives. Our children
will do as they see their teachers
doing, not necessarily as they are
told.
thee, O man, what is good, and
what the Ix>rd doth require of
thee: Only to do justly, and to
love mercy, and to walk humbly
with thy God." Judaism has
developed many ritualistic ob-
servances which are integral
parts of the religious practice,
but these rituals are simply
means and pathways to the goal
of the prophetic ideal.
The Bible, which is the fun-
damental teaching of the Jewish
people, is a book of life, and it
rarely engages in speculation.
Rare are its flights into fantasy
or detached thought. It never
pauses throughout its entire
course to define what is Judaism
or what Ls religion. It never
ceases living, and consequently it
has no time to withdraw and
build, as did the Greeks, archi-
tectural systems of philosophy
and reflection.
He is entirely wrong who
thinks that the Bible has no
philosophy, that there is no basic
thought that units all of the
varied pages and chapters of
Scripture into a single coherent
entity, and that its various ac-
counts and narratives do not
function in the same climate of
consideration and affirmation.
The Bible's philosophy is not
placed before you on a platter.
You must delve for its con-
clusions and thoughts. You must
organize them for yourself. It is
similar to the story told of the
ignorant but pious farmer who
came to the synagogue on the
High Holy Days to pray, but did
not know how to read the Hebrew
liturgy. Ho stood close to the
rabbi and began to mutter the
Hebrew alphabet: Alef. Mais,
(iimel and so on. The rabbi
turned to him and said. "Is this
how you pray?" "Oh. our Cod is
a good and understanding God."
the unlearned man answered.
"He knows what's in my heart,
so let Him take these letters of
the alphabet, and put them
together to form the words of the
prayers that I wish to offer." One
must penetrate beneath the
surface of the words to the depths
of the thoughts that reside
beneath it.
There is a universal thought,
there is a unity of ideas, there is

The Union of American
Hebrew Congregations charged
France with "capitulation and
barbarism." Albert Vorspan,
UAHC vice president, said that
"Arab petrodollars, oil and
political muscle obviously
counted for more than justice,
law and the moral canon of
civilization."
Herman Rosenbaum, president
of the National Council of Young
Israel, said the release of Daoud
"will remain a source of shame
throughout the history of
France" and "constitutes an
abrogation of French and inter-
national law and a collapse before
blackmail." Statements of
outrage were also expressed by
other American Jewish
organizations and individuals.

THERE IS NOTHING
THAT CAN BE SUBSTITUTED FOR
SEEING ISRAEL FOR YOURSELF'
"1 don't believe that there is a better way
to express your feelings than to actually go
to Israel....There is something special about
the Holy Land... Those who go, come back
entirely different. They see something that
no words can describe."
So spoke Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister
of Israel, at the beginning of this Solidarity
Pilgrimage Year. Yet, what Rabin said is an
echo of what every person has felt who has
ever visited Israel. You know this.
If you don't you'll learn it at Pesach, when,
sitting at the Seder in Israel, every symbol
of this festival of freedom will take on
richness that almost aches.
You'll know the feeling when you join the
crowd and dance through the streets on
Purim or Independence Day.
You'll feel it on Shavuot, as the First
Yitzhak Rabm, Prime Minister (if Israel
Fruits arc paraded through the kibbutz
with so much bursting pride. And at the
Western Wall, where the ancient chanting
through the night seems to make centuries
melt away.
You'll know what "no words can de-
scribe" when you walk through the streets
of Israel at Sukkot, and find yourself sur-
rounded by beautiful Sukkot booths in
every yard and on every balcony.
You'll feel it at Chanukah, at the candle
lighting ceremony atop Mount Zion.
But you don't need a celebration to share
these experiences. Because every day of
Solidarity Year is a celebration of your
partnership with Israel.
And once you go and feel these things for
the first time, as many times as you return
will never be enough.

Israel Will Use Every Legal
Means to Catch DaoudRabin
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
said at a Cabinet meeting that the French government's
position in the Abu Daoud affair is damaging to the prospects
of fighting international terrorism.
HE VOWED that Israel would act by all possible means to
bring terrorist killers to trial and punishment. "The govern-
ment is obligated to act in every legal way to seize murderers
who stay in friendly countries," he said.
"The purpose is," Rabin explained, "to prevent options for
sabotage in Israel and against Jewish targets both in Israel and
broad." He stressed, however, that Israel's quarrel is with the
French government, not the French people "who understand
t he need to fight against international terror."
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon told the Cabinet that Israelis
still waiting for further "clarification" from France on its
release of Abu Daoud.
HE SAID certain "legal clarifications" were already
received from Paris but are not satisfactory. When Israel
receives the additional clarifications it will decide its next step.
Allon said.
The Cabinet session was attended by Israel's Ambassador
to France. Mordechai Garit, who was called home for con-
sultations last week. He said that in general, Israel enjoys
"great admiration" in French public opinion.
Dr. K Says There's Hope
For Peace in Middle East
Wism
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Secreretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger
said here that "conditions
for progress" toward peace
in the Middle East "are
better than they have been
in many years."
He made that remark
and elaborated on it in
reply to questions after
delivering his "valedictory
address" at a National
Press Club luncheon.
Kissinger leaves office
when the Carter Admin-
istration is inaugurated
this week.
THE OUTGOING Secretary
was asked whether the Middle
East "is really closer to a solution
of the Israeli, Palestinian and
other issues that have so long
plagued it" and whether the
region "has been eliminated as a
likely area of Soviet-American
confrontation and conflict."
Kissinger replied that "The
Middle East has obviously not
been eliminated as a source of
conflict."
But he stressed that conditions
there have improved greatly
since 1973 when "the Arab world
and Israel were engaged in a war
at the end of which the danger of
a new flare-up was extremely
great."
State Dep't Says Soviets
Must Pay UNEF Share
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department has
confirmed its view that the Soviet Union is legally obligated to
pay its full share of the cost of the United Nations peace-
keeping forces in the Middle East.
A spokesman said here "the United States has paid its full
contribution for the period in question of $31,850,300. We
believe other members are expected to pay their assessed
contributions under the General Assembly resolutions setting
up the finance mechanism for the force."
THE SPOKESMAN added "it is now up to the United
Nations Secretary General to decide how to proceed." The
spokesman said he did not know whether the matter came up in
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's luncheon meeting Jan.
4 with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin and Secretary of
State-designate Cyrus Vance.
The issue arose when the Soviets decided not to pay their
share of the cost, leading to speculation that the action was a
warning to the Carter Administration that the USSR must be
included in any new U.S.-sponsored peace initiative in the
Middle East.
THE SOVIET UNION said in a brief note to the UN it was
withholding about $4.4 million in contributions to the UN force
policing the Israeli-Egyptian Sinai accord.
The note said "The Soviet Union had nothing to do with
this agreement, concluded on a separate basis and actually
circumventing the Geneva peace conference" on the Middle
East.

Letter to the Community
Dear Friends,
This community is very proud of our Jewish Community Day
School of Palm Reach County.
We are currently offering 96 Jewish boys and girls an ex-
cellent secular and Jewish education.
There is increasing recognition by leading American Jews
that our people and institutions stand in peril if we fail to
produce a next generation of educated and committed Jews.
This is the primary goal of our school.
The operation of such a viable Jewish Day School is extremely
expensive. The school receives a significant annual allocation
from the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. Never-
theless, the cost required to offer this type of quality education
for every Jewish child whose parents desire to provide it, is very
high. It is far in excess of the tuition which most of our parents
must severely budget themselves or seek assistance to pay. The
tuition averages more than $1,300 per year.
As its major fund-raising effort, the Jewish Community Day
School is sponsoring its second annual Cocktail Party, to be held
on Feb. 19, 8 p.m. at the residence of Mr. Robert D. Rapaportof
Palm Beach. A tax-deductible donation of $100 is requested.
Please treat yourself to this lovely evening and the mitevah
that it represents. To order your tickets and for further in-
formation please call the Day School office between 9 a.m. and 4
p.m. Monday through Friday.

French Blast U.S. For Bonds Lunch Carter Wants to Mak<
Criticizing Daoud's Release Honors Chiat A Good Impression
Bv EDWIN EYTAN French action had left him .,. .._ _f
Ir>2,lj
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTAI The inter-
national crisis surrounding
France's decision to release Black
September leader Abu Daoud
rose to new heights as the French
Foreign Ministry lashed out in
anger at the United States.
The Foreign Ministry called in
the American Charge d'Affaires
Samuel Gammon to tell him in no
uncertain terms that France
rejected U.S. criticism of its legal
action as "inadmissible appreci-
ation of the acts of French
justice."
On Jan. 12 in a radio interview,
Minister of Interior Michel
Poniatovsky rapped all those
who criticized French policy by
saying "France does not preach
at others and will not allow
others to preach to it."
FRENCH authorities were
especially irked by the State De-
partment's statement Jan. 11
which expressed "dismay" at
France's decision to disregard
West German and Israeli
detention for extradition
requests. State Department
spokesman John Trattnor said
"through an apparent legal tech-
nicality, neither West German
nor Israeli courts will be given
the opportunity to interrogate
this man about the brutal and
revolting murder of athletes in
Munich."
State Department spokesman
Robert Funseth said in
Washington Jan. 13 that
Gammon had "reiterated our
feelings of dismay" over the
release of Daoud when he was
called to the Foreign Ministry in
Paris.
President Jimmy Carter told
newsmen in Washington that the
French action had left him
"deeply disturbed and very much
surprised." But he said there was
nothing to be done about it
except to get a stronger inter-
national consensus against
terrorism.
HE SAID he would not raise
the issue when he speaks by tele-
phone to French President Valery
discard d'Kstaing but that Vice
President Walter Mondale would
when he goes to Paris after the
inauguration this week.
The existing situation is now
being openly described by dip-
lomatic circles here as one of
"grave crisis" which might
jeopardize France's relations
with the U.S.
The tension between France
and Israel is unabated. The de-
parture of Israeli Ambassador
Mordechai dazit Jan. 12 was
viewed by French officials with
"shock and dismay." Though
both the Quai d'Orsay and the
Elysee Palace refrained from any
official comment on his depar-
ture, French officials privately
expressed hope that relations
"will soon be normalized."
The Century Village State of
Israel Bond Committee, in co-
operation with the Palm Beach
County Israel Bond Committee,
hosted a testimonial luncheon in
honor of Jack Chiat on Jan. 24 at
the Breakers in jtv*~

President Jimmy Carter wants
to start off his term by making a
good impression. He has asked
his transition team to look for
some immediate, tangible ways
to cut back on government fat.
The staff is preparing reports
listing government waste that
can be quickly eliminated during
Carter's first few months in
office. He wants to demonstrate
early that he is trying to keep his
campaign promises.
Carter has also promised to cut
military spending and has set a
goal of reducing the military
budget by $5 billion to $7 billion.
HOWEVER, he has received
some grim, secret warnings about
military cutbacks. The outgoing
Secretary of Defense, Donald
Rumsfeld, met with Carter for six
and a half hours.
Rumsfeld warned Carter that
U.S. military strength has been
steadily declining while Soviet
military strength has been
steadily increasing. Rumsfeld
acknowledged that today the
United States is as powerful as
the Soviet Union, but he ex-
pressed great alarm over the
trend.
He told Carter, in effect, that
the Democrats could get away
with slashing the military budget
and the sky wouldn't fall in. But
he strongly indicated that a deep
cut would jeopardize the nation's
future security. He explained
that this year's cuts won't be
measured on the military scale
for years to come.
THE SOVIETS have been
increasing their military might at
nn annual three percent rate since
the 1960s. During the same
period, U.S. strength has
dropped 1 4 percent Im>Iow the pre-
Vief nam War levels.
One of the transition
documents furnished to the
Carter team shows that the
Soviet Union has modernized its
intercontinental missiles during
the past 15 years. The United
States has developed only one
new intercontinental missile
system since 1966. while the
Soviet Union has developed
seven.
The transition document
states: The USSR already has
the advantage in ICBM (inter-
continental missiles) and SLBM
(sea-launched missiles) numbers
and throwweight.
THE SOVIETS continue
aggressive ICBM, strategic
bomber and SLBM development
and deployment.
"Moreover, as the size, number
and accuracy of Soviet weapons
continues to increase, the sur-
vi validity of our silo-based ICBM
force is increasingly jeopar-
dized."
Incidentally, there was an
interesting footnote in the
transition papers. The Defense
Department notified the incom-
ing Democrats that it will deliver
missiles to Jordan. Hawk
missiles will be shipped to Jordan
at 60-day intervals, beginning
this year.
The first Vulcan air defense
missiles were delivered to Jordan
last month and another shipment
is scheduled in March.

GOLD BLESS Allegra Maud Goldman and the
book of the same name (Harper & Row, 174p.,
$7.95). She reminds us of our favorite characters
from childhood reading. She is part Eloise
devilish and precocious; and part Harriet the Spy
- creative and clever. And happily Allegra is
Jewish.
Allegro's home life is upper-middle-class,
assimilated, 1930s. But Edith Konecky, the
author, sprinkles about enough (but not as much
Sii wou,d like> Jewishness to contribute to
Allegro's successful growth and development.
TOLD IN the first person, Allegro's astute
observations from ages three to thirteen are out-
rageous. She is tough and objective in dealing
with herself and her world.
She discovers herself as a female and as a
"person" through the most delightful and wry
adventures. Allegra Maud Goldman is a won-
derful, self-respecting book for pre-teens and
teenagers.
DR. OSCAR Kraines, a local resident, is the
author of a provocative new book entitled The
Impossible Dilemma: Who is a Jew in the State of
Israel!1 (Bloch, 156p., $6.95). This is one of the
most disturbing, confusing and difficult problems
to come to grips with as a Jew. It becomes a
source of irritation when dealing with marriage
and divorce issues: intermarriage, cohens
marrying divorcees and bastard children.
It also challenges the definition of who is a Jew
for purposes of immigration, and registration of
one's nationality and religion in Israel. The
application of political and legal decisions in-
volving the Law of Return affects Jewry around
Susan panof f
the world as well as Israel's population, and it is a
bitter point of contention for the Palestinian
Arabs.
KRAINES, who is a leading authority in
several fields of law and legal history describes
the problems and critically discusses landmark
cases and incidents from 1960 to 1974. He con-
cludes that these issues will not likely be resolved
in the near future.
However, the author suggests that the three
major sects of Judaism in America accept each
other's members as "full-fledged" Jews with the
accompanying recognition of agreeable standards
for ceremonies performed by their respective
rabbis.
With Win Buttons, &f f ipmative M
action may Wither an6 die
AFFIRMATIVE Action is a laudable concept.
But if we're not careful, this campaign may
wither and die just the way Jerry Ford's Win
buttons dropped off.
All the fair minded among us agree that we
have to use special jacks and pulleys to get more
minority group people hired and promoted. But
RoBRt Segal
these hoisting devices can slip and swing in a way
that hurts, impedes and practically demotes folks
other than blacks, American Indians, the
Spanish-speaking, and Orientals in our labor
market.
TAKE THE rumpus kicked up by issuance of
new government regulations applicable to certain
federal contractors and subcontractors. Civil
rights groups are furious about them. Sen.
Edward W. Brooke has pointed out that these
new rules would call for conferences to set ground
rules for hiring only if the contracts at hand were
worth $10 million or more.
In the Senators opinion, this would do away
with pre-contract-award sessions for 90 percent of
all defense contracts. Hence, we would have a
throwback to the old trickle down benefit theory,
espoused by business leaders 50 years ago.
OTHER CRITICS of the Labor Department's
new game plan have sifted through the com-
plicated language of the guidelines and concluded
that Jews and some other groups will be ad-
versely affected. The reasoning here is that the
Labor Department's definition of minority groups
leaves out Jews and others who deserve job and
seniority protection.
Meanwhile, the Affirmative Action program
wins support and spreads dismay in a number of
areas as federal and state bureaucracies pull it
along its checkered course. On "Meet The Press"
not long ago. Harvard President Derek Bok gave
lis blessing to Affirmative Action.
THIS WAS in context of questioning about an
mportant recent California Supreme Court
decision. The West Coast court held that racial
quotas employed to give blacks a break at the
University of California actually discriminated
against whites. The top California court branded
this "Reverse Discrimination."
If this is not enough to confuse the average
reader, let us note that just six months before this
decision came down, the New York State Court of
Appeals had ruled unanimously that "Reverse
Discrimination" was constitutional in certain
circumstances. Taking up complaints about the
Downstate Medical Center's grant of preference
to minority students less qualified than white
students, the New York Appeals Court opined
that this kind of procedure was satisfactory as
long as a substantial interest underlies the policy
and practice and further, that no non-racial or
less-objectionable racial classification will serve
the purpose.
But hold on: two months later, a federal judge
in Washington landed hard on a "Reverse Dis-
crimination" practice by declaring that George-
town University violated the civil rights of a
white student by setting aside most of its first-
year law school scholarships for minority ap-
plicants only.

But "without prodding of any sort from me, he very
quickly volunteered the information that he was indeed
the only Jewish farmer in the state of Vermont" and
that he had painted the Hebrew word on the side of his
barn to let his neighbors know "exactly who he was and
what he was."
Under delicate questioning, the Jewish farmer
whose name the rabbi withheld in his report told the
rabbi and his wife that he and his wife and five children
had lived on the farm for several years. Rabbi Shapiro
added that the farmer "displayed a rather ferocious
consciousness of his Jewish identity and was deeply
identified with Zionism and the Land of Israel."
THE FARMER told his visitors that he sent his
children to a religious school in the nearest Jewish com-
munity which was several miles away. He reported he
was deeply concerned about the problem of mixed
marriage affecting his children and that he was
determined to make certain that they developed
"Jewish households of their own."
Rabbi Shapiro described the farm as very hospitable,
providing the rabbi and his wife with a tour of his farm,
displaying "great pride in his accomplishments despite
what he claimed to be the hostility of some of his neigh-
bors."
AT THE same time, Rabbi Shapiro commented, he
displayed attitudes typical of the American farmer,
"such as his view of government restrictions and and
intense individualism."
Rabbi Shapiro remarked that he had subsequently
thought often about that isolated Jewish farmer,
remarking that there were probably "many Jews like
him, struggling to retain their Jewish faith and identity
in many remote corners of this land."

We have a stake in Israel as
Americans. Israel is the only
Middle Eastern state which can
be depended on to resist Russian
aggression and pressure. It is the
only bastion of freedom and
democracy in an Arab sea of
feudal empires and dictatorships.
Our stake as .lews is equally
clear. A free and independent
Israel is a necessity for Jewish
survival in a hostile world. Would
thai a sovereign Israel had
existed when Jewish refugee
ships were turned away by the
British rulers of Palestine, turned
away to die at sea or to return to
lierman Internment camps. Kven
now. anti-Semitism grows in
South America Jews there are
already looking toward Israel as
a haven.
I.el none of us be naive enough
to assist any "pence" move which

definition of peace. Israel must

The Question Of
Representation

life. Federation experience over
many years has demonstrated
I he wisdom of developing loaders
from I hat cross-section of the
community. Prof. Daniel Klazar.
one of the few scholars who has
studied decision making in
Federation, offers the following
pettincnl rwrimontw:
"By and large, the
cosmo|M)lilan volunteers are
probably representative of
the more Jowishly com-
mitted elements in the
mainstream of the American
Jewish community. this
despite the fact that they are
rarely elected to the offices
(hey occupy In any
meaningful sense ol the
term.
"The elections, though not
always formalities, are
usually simple means of
formally ratifying the
choices of nominating
committees, and even when
Contested, are rarely con-
tested by candidates
representing seriously
different characteristics or
points of view. They are
representative because there
is a certain sameness in
American Jewry that means
that il is difficult not to le
prototypical. Their desires,
tastes, attitudes, interests
and educational
backgrounds probably
depart very little from the
norm among all but the
lowest income Jew."
Perhaps the best indication of
Federation success in expressing
the wishes of its supporters is the
fact of successful campaigns year
after year. How Federations
spend money is the test of what
they do and what they believe in.
The facts are widely
disseminated and are con-
tinuously available, and
disapproval is quickly expressed
in a refusal to contribute. The
record speaks for itself.
In the next article, we will
examine in detail the financing of
Federaions and will explain the
allocation of funds in our com-
munity to our various beneficiary
agencies.
Linda Kalnitsky, president of
the Jewish Family and Children's
Service, recently announced the
S&fc^
DR. MYLES COOLEY

Cooley as the agency's consulting
psychologist.
Dr. Cooley will assist
Executive Director Stephen
U'vitt. A.C.S.W., with the

volving an interdisciplinary

latest development in a new
series of agency structural
changes.

According to Levitt, Dr.
Cooley will provide "an in-
valuable aid in the staff's diag-
nostic resources," adding that
"at this point in time the con-
sultant will promote a greater
staff diagnostic capability at our
agency's staff-case presen-
tations."
This will "enhance our pro-
fessional social work staff's inter-
pretation of client problems, and
integrate treatment plans for our
clients." Levitt said.
Dr. Cooley received his Ph.D.
in Clinical Psychology from the
State University of New York at
Albany and his Baccalaureate
and a Master's degree from

munity Mental Health Center,

Dr. Cooley is a member of
the American Psychological
Association and the Association
for Advancement of Behavior
Therapy.
One of Dr. Cooley's current
interests is in teaching assertive
MM training.courses where in-
dividuals learn how to express
their opinions, rights, needs, and
feelings in appropriate, non-
aggressive ways. He has recently
authored three works on this
topic.
