The 1977 Combined Jewish Appeal Israel Emergency Fund campaign is
coming down the home stretch. The current world situation and conditions
here at home make it imperative that every Palm Beach County Jew
recognize his or her obligation, duty and privilege to make a personal
conmitment to Jewish survival.
Within the past year and a half, Israel has been condemned as being
a racist state by the United Nations; it has had to take extraordinary
measures to rescue Jews held hostage at Entebbe; and, most recently,
it has suffered the indignity of seeing the confessed killer of
Israeli athletes at Munich released from custody.
All of which serve to underscore the isolation in which Israel finds
itself among the nations of the world.
At the same time, Israel is struggling to create a viable and dynamic
society in the face of grave economic conditions brought about by
the Yarn Kippur War. Runaway inflation and devaluation of the currency
has forced Israeli families to lower their standards of living and
many families, particularly these who arrived in recent years are now
living below the poverty level. They must now receive some form of
public assistance in order to survive at a time when there is
less money available to help them. .
In almost every areahealth, education, housing and absorptionthe
Jewish Agency has had to reduce its budget, and the people of Israel
are being deprived of basic humanitarian services. They look to us, the
Jews of the Diaspora, to help sustain the fibre of life in Israel.
Here in Palm Beach County, all of the agencies of the Jewish Federation
providing educational, social and welfare services to the community
have been hit by rising costs and increasing demands for service.
It is the obligation and privilege of every Jew, man and woman, to
support the 1977 Combined Jewish Appeal Israel Emergency Fund
campaign. It is a moral imperative to be righteous. Are we Jews of
Comfort...or are we Jews of Conbat? Each one of us must ask himself
What will your answer be?

as Miss Universe and
answered questions pertaining to
her life in Israel and as a sergeant
in the Israeli Army. She stated
that she hoped her title would
bring honor to Israel and help
promote peace and un-
derstanding throughout the
world. After her reign Ms.
Messinger plans to return to
Israel to continue her studies.
Alan L. Shulman, general
campaign chairman, discussed
the growing needs in Israel in the
areas of health, education and
welfare. He stated that most
Israelis must hold two jobs in
order to meet their monthly bills,
due to the 60 to 70 percent tax on
their income. "In addition,"
Shulman added, "they are called
upon to sacrifice a son, daughter,
husband, in the regularly
scheduled wars in the Middle
East." In asking the community
for an increased commitment to
the 1977 campaign, Shulman
stated. "Every Jew is con-
nected. one to the other. We
will not break our chain, we
will not sever our roots'."
The evening concluded with
pledges showing a significant
increase over last year.
Miss Rina Messinger, Miss Universe 1976 and Miss Israel was

No Bed of Roses For
Dutch Flower Men
By JON FEDLER
BONN (JTA) German
and Dutch flower growers have
expressed alarm at massive
imports of cheap Israeli roses.
Daily flights of Israeli fruit- and
flower-laden jumbos started
arriving at Cologne Airport late
By the end of this winter,
Israel will have sold about 50
million roses to Europe, and this
figure is expected to double next
THE EUROPEANS say their
roses cost about eight cents
apiece to grow, but Israeli roses,
in spite of air freight costs, are
being sold to wholesalers at "a
fraction of this."
In fact, German flower-sellers
are not passing on this cost
advantage to their customers on
Europe's biggest flower market
Roses, whatever their origin,

each, retail. An even bigger head-
ache for flower growers is
resulting from carnations from
Kenya and Colombia which,
unlike the Israeli flowers,
blossom all year round.
THE GERMAN Flower
Growers Association has told its
members there is nothing it can
It recommends that they
switch to growing more exotic
flowers which, unlike roses and
carnations, cannot be trans-
ported long distances.

publishers opposed the Child
Labor Law in the first quarter of
this century on First Amendment
grounds: prohibiting "little
merchants" of any age from
hustling newspapers at any hour
of the day or night was viewed as
inhibiting distribution of in-
formation, thus violating "the
people's" right to know.
In the second quarter they
carried the National Labor
Relations Act (Wagner Act) to
the Supreme Court on First
Amendment grounds: since the
law permitted reporters to
organize into unions (as well as
other people) it would thus
"dictate to the press the persons
to be employed in preparing news
and editorials and therefore
control editorial policy, thereby
curtailing freedom of the press."
HERE in Florida in recent
weeks, television stations and the
Miami Herald won a ruling from
a Dade Circuit Court Judge that
the state's Security Com-
munications Act did not apply to
the media because it was a
violation of the First Amendment
and therefore "unconstitutional."
According to a Herald story on
Judge Donald Stone's ruling, he
found that "The Fourth Amend-
ment (which sets forth the rights
of privacy) must yield to the
First Amendment in this case."
The point at issue was whether
reporters are covered by the law
which prohibits a party to a con-
versation from recording such
conversation "without the
consent of all (emphasis mine)
parties to the conversation ..."
THE ANTI-WIRETAP law.
according to Judge Stone, "sub-
stantially impaired and almost
fatally eliminated the ability of
(reporters) to investigate, ac-
curately coroborate and dis-
seminate matters affecting the
public welfare." To which I dis-
respectfully say. Nonsense.
For this is the same kind of
publisher pap that the United
States Supreme Court has
rejected time and again. In ruling
that the press had to conform to
the National Labor Relations Act
(a decision in which, incidentally,
I had a personal stake since I was
one of 19 fired at the time
throughout the country for
organizing the American News-
paper Guild on my newspaper).
Justice Roberts pointed out in his
opinion that the law did not
regulate the press but only its
"The publishers of a news-
paper has no special immunity
from the application of general
laws," he said, and the statute
had "no relation whatever to the
impartial distribution of news."
IN A FAMOUS dissent in
1952, in whkh the issue of the
right of privacy and the First
Amendment came into play (not
involving the media, however),
Justice Douglas expressed the
opinion that the "sanctity of
thought and belief" provided for
in the First Amendment made
imperative a "constitutional
right to be left alone."
Atty. Gen. Robert Shevin has
brought the state's appeal to the
Florida Supreme Court where,
hopefully, the higher wisdom will
reverse Judge Stone.
In any event, a ruling either
way will most likely be appealed
to the United States Supreme
Court for what will probably be a
landmark decision. As a non-
lawyer I am somewhat puzzled

the Federal District Court, was

I Levittown Censors Due for Court I
NEW YORK The American
Jewish Committee announced
this week that it would file an
amicus brief in a Levittown
(N.Y.) court case in support of
public school students who are
suing the District Board of
Education for removing a
number of controversial books
from the District's school
Samuel Rabinove, director of
the Committee's Legal Division,
disclosed the impending action at
a session of an all-day conference
sponsored by the National
Coalition Against Censorship.
The conference was held at Christ
AJC EXECUTIVE reported
that the school Board of the
Island Trees District, which had
taken the action, had said that
the books involved contained
"material which is offensive to
Christians, Jews, blacks, and
Americans in general."
Among the volumes which
were ordered removed were
Bernard Malamud's The Fixer,
Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse
Five, and Best Short Stories by
Negro Writers, edited by
In deciding to intervene in the
case, Rabinove declared, the AJC
feels strongly that Malamud's
novel is "a profoundly moving
account of how anti-Semitism
corrupts justice and ruins lives.
It is ludicrous that the Island
Trees School Board should
consider this Pulitzer Prize-win-
ning novel as supposedly of-
fensive to Jews."

its member organizations and
others to oppose restraints on
freedom of expression and the
suppression of ideas.
AMONG THE subjects
examined at the conference were
violence on television, the
desirability of the Federal Com-

broadcasters to present con-
trasting viewpoints on public
affairs issues, obscenity and its
regulation, and the problems of
negative ethnic stereotypes on

Some 50,000 persons attended
the funeral service of the Hasidic

who died here yesterday at the
age of 82.
The stream of people followed

came to the Middle East with
invitations from President Carter
to the heads of state in the region
to visit him in Washington
during March and April. Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin is ex-
pected to go to the U.S. before

meant by "Geneva-type," he
replied, "You can call it what you
want." He appeared to be saying
that what matters is the sub-
stance of talks, not their form.
But observers here believe the

"Geneva-type" reflected his
strategy for dealing with the
single major obstacle in the way
of Middle East peace talks the

IN CAIRO, Vance welcomed
President Anwar Sadat's latest
remarks favoring a Jordan-
PLO link-up before the Geneva
talks are resumed as a possible
means of bridging the gap
between Israel and the Arab
states over PLO participation.
Vance is believed to feel that
since Israel has always insisted
on a West Bank settlement
within the framework of ne-
gotiations with Jordan, it could
not object to Sadat's proposal.
Israeli reaction has been
ambivalent. On one hand, the
involvement of Jordan would
appear to negate the October,
19*4, Arab summit decision at
Rabat which designated the PLO
as the sole representative of the
Palestinians. At the same time,
however, the feeling here is that
Vance seems to be ignoring
Israel's unqualified opposition to
the establishment of a third state
between itself and the Hashemite
ISRAEL FEARS that such a
state, even if linked somehow to
Jordan, would be an irridentist
force seeking to expand at the
expense of both of its neighbors.
Israel would like to see the Pales-
tinian problem settled by the
creation of a Jordanian Pales-
tinian state with which it would
establish secure, recognized
These differences could become
a source of future friction bet-
ween Israel and the U.S. sources
For the time being, however,
Vance reiterated several times
during his brief stay in Israel
that as long as the PLO refuses
to recognize Israel's right to exist
and does not accept Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338,
it cannot be a partner to the

? ?Question Box? ?
By Rabbi Samuel J. Fox
Question: Why aren't the
Mallei Psalms recited on Purim
like they are on other holidays?
Answer: A number of reasons
are given for this omission. Ever
since the arrival of the Hebrews
in the land of Israel. Mallei is
recited only as a means of
thanksgiving for those miracles
that occurred in Israel.
The miracle which delivered
the Jews in the case celebrated on
Purim, having occurred outside
of Israel (i.e. in Persia), does not
call for the recitation of Mallei
Others claim that since the
Book of Esther (i.e. the
Meggillah) is read on Purim this
takes the place of Hal lei. What
greater praise is there for the
Almighty than to read and recite
the story of the miracle that He
provided for His people?
A third reason for eliminating
the Mallei on Purim is that the
beginning of the Mallei calls the
Jews "the servants of the Lord."
This means that they are entirely
redeemed from the bondage of
On Purim, even though the
Jews were saved from the op-
pression of Hainan they still
continued to live under foreign
rule and thus were yet under
some form of bondage.
Question: Why are the inter-
vening days characterized as
days of sadness?
the economy. In addition, the
pilgrims had to make sure to gel
back home and then return to
Jerusalem during this period,
making them tense in getting
their work at home done on time.
SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
"As soon as he saw the calf and the dancing .
Moses' anger waxed hot. and he cast the tables out of hit
hands" (Exod. 32.19).
KI TISSA The children of Israel were counted and each
man over 20 years of age contributed half a shekel as
"ransom." Bezalel. son of Uri, and Oholiab. son of
Ahisamach. were appointed to head the artisans who
made the Tabernacle and its vessels. The Israelites were
warned not to violate t he Sabbath day.
God gave Moses two tablets of stone containing the
Ten Commandments, written "with the finger of God."
However, to the impatient Israelites, Mooes seemed to Ik-
tarrying too long on the mountain. They made a golden
call, which Moses found them worshipping. In bis fury, he
broke the two tablets of the Law. The idolaters were killed
In the members of the loyal tribe of Levi. Moses prayed
successfully to God to spare t he children ot Israel despite
their backsliding. He ascended Mount Sinai again, and
there received a new set of stone tablets. When he
descended, "The skin of Moses' lace sent forth learns; and
Moses put the veil back upon his face, until he went in to

The process is an eroding one.
It plays on the apparently
respectable sectors of political
public opinion, including Jewish
pressures, to accept peace at any

moments might consider more a

WE HAVE seen elements of
this war here in South Florida,
with the appearance at the Uni-
versity of Miami of Gen. Matti
Peled, who is by now an
acknowledged instrument of the
Washington-based Institute for
Policy Studies (IPS) and the
American Friends Service Com-
mittee, a favorite IPS watering

this month in behalf of some
nerve shattering of his own.
The point here is that neither
the American Friends Service

so well of Israel as it does of PLO
The point also is that Gen.
Peled's appearance at American

Breira forums is increasingly cal-
culated to encourage contempt
for what Breira particularly has
come to call the "American

is missing are the NWLF's

IN THE end, neither Peled nor

an internal Israeli sectarian
struggle involving an honest
difference of opinion over the
spirit of compromise.
More likely, they appear to be

clear, we must begin making dis-

not, particularly when the New

refuse to do so. It may be hard for
us to come to grips with the
notion that some JeWs would care
to do Israel or other Jews harm.
But they are Jews in name

By Own Policies
WASHINGTON The bitter
arctic storms subsided a bit last
week, but the legacy of this
winter's critical natural gas
shortage already has been
written in the cumulative agony
of a nation defeated by itself.
The ravages of the cold wave
have not created the pioneering
spirit Americans have always
depended on for the courage and
determination needed to fight a
common foe. Rather, like the
Arab oil embargo of 1973, the
wild greed of some of this
country's major industries helped
the weather defeat us.
LIKE PREHISTORIC men
and women denied the kindling
for firewood, we huddled in our
homes without heat as the
weather struck with little war-
ning, overcoming the most
sophisticated technology known
to man. But the weather was not
a completely common enemy.
Though most Americans suf-
fered, others gleefully watched
their profits soar beyond all
The Federal Power Com-
mission now has evidence that oil
and gas companies are holding
back the production of vast
natural gas reserves. The com-
mission recently completed a
confidential one-year in-
vestigation of natural gas
found that the oil and gas
combines have deliberately
delayed the production of natural
gas *>der the Gulf of Mexico.
Evf major oil and gas com-
pr -says the FPC study, is
ho .g back some production.
There are seven trillion. 300
billion cubic feet of known gas
reserves under the Gulf of
Mexico. The oil companies want
to preserve much of this for
future years, -hen the price will
be even higher.
The commission confined its
year-long investigation just to
the offshore gas that has already
been committed for delivery. The
investigators found that the
companies could get much more
of this gas to the market faster, if
they wanted to. This would
provide all the gas that should be
neeaed to ease the current crisis.
IN OTHER WORDS, there is
no gas shortage at the suppliers'
end of the pipelines. The shortage
is all at the customers' end.
The study charges that Amoco
has failed to drill a well in one
offshore reservoir. That untapped
gas alone amounts to 17 billion
cubic feet. The study also
identified two other large gas
reserves, which Texaco is keeping
out of production until 1981. One
of the reservoirs, known as
Lighthouse Point, contains more
than 100 billion cubic feet of gas.
The study also alleges that
Mobil is holding back the
production of more than 32
billion cubic feet of gas. Both Su-
perior Oil and Union Oil, says the
study, also could increase
Many congressmen are fed up

PLO Repeats: Israel Must Disappear
Continued from Page 7
"It is evident from the reports
of the California police that Arab
students in America have or-
ganized themselves into a pro-
PLO underground which must be
investigated by the Admin-
istration and Congress," said
Rabbi Joseph P. Sternstein,
president of the Zionist Or-
ganization of America.
Rabbi Sternstein cites recent
reports from California that Arab
students have been sys-
tematically cheating American
insurance companies to raise
money which some believe has
been given to the PLO terrorist
movement, urged the Admin-
istration and Congress to con-

the Middle East "depends on the
Arabs and it depends on the
world. But," she declares in the
current (March) issue of Ladies'
Home Journal, "the world is

in to oil."
Mrs. Meir was interviewed in
Israel last October by Julie
Nixon Eisenhower for Mrs.
Kisenhower's forthcoming book,
Special People. During the inter-
view, when Mrs. Eisenhower
referred to the inability of the
United Nations to counter
terrorism as "a joke." Mrs. Meir
"A joke? It is a tragedy. Not a
joke. The UN is a tragedy. There

While the Egyptians may get
some joy from their Western
creditors, the story is different
with the Soviet bloc.
Negotiations with Moscow,
Cairo's biggest creditor, are still
running into difficulties. A
meeting between Egyptian For-
eign Minister Esmail Fahmy and
his Soviet counterpart, Andrei
Gromyko, on neutral ground in
the Bulgarian capital, Sofia,
recently ended in a deadlock.
"The Russians will never
forgive us for telling them to get

with Israel," said an Egyptian
EGYPT'S DEBT problems
have not, however, prevented
Cairo from obtaining massive aid
from Washington. The United
States is expected to give in the
region of $2 billion to Egypt over
the next two years. But already
the question being asked by
officials in Washington is: will it
be used correctly?
There are fears that non-
military assistance may fail
because of hasty planning, man-
power shortcomings at
managerial level and. inevitably,
"mini-I^ockheeds." One State
Department official involved in
the Egyptian aid program
remarks that there are enough
safeguards to make possible cor-
ruption "a trivial problem." But
already the Egyptian press is
preoccupied with what it
euphemistically terms "diver-
Most of the aid is being
channeled to long-term industrial
development projects and
modernization programs. One
example is the modernization of
the El Misr spinning and
weaving plant at Mahalla.
Textiles play a large part in
Egyptian exports. The El Misr
factory, built in the days of
British imperial presence, is so
outmoded, say experts, that its
output per man hour is one-tenth
that of an American textile plant.
ANOTHER OF Sadat's head-
aches is that even with massive
U.S. aid, long-term indus-
trialization projects are not going
to work out unless Egyptian
talent is wooed back. The cream
of Egypt's managerial, pro-
fessional and technical talent has
been exported. It has been ex-
timated that 10 percent of really
qualified Egyptians are working
abroad. Many young professional
people left during Nasser's
"Egyptianization" program, but
may be lured back of al-infitah
gets off the ground.
An aspect of the aid program
that worries U.S. experts is that
it places too much emphasis on
industry and not enough on agri-
culture. Egypt's population, now
nearing 40 million, cannot feed
itself and must use much of its
precious foreign exchange for
food imports. But, for their part,
the Egyptians are optimistic. Dr.
Morssy Saad El-Din told To the
Point that the government has
fewer qualms today about
feeding the population.
One promising side to al-
infitah is that it has lured the
international oil companies back
to Egypt. Will the country be
able to join the kings of the oil
exporting club? The answer will
come within eight years.
BY THEN more than $530
million will have been spent on
exploration in the country by 24
companies. For many of them, it
will be a return to old pastures
vacated with the advent of
Nasser and nationalization in the

dim view of the future. Former
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
said, "I am sorry about the out-
come, but I am sorrier about the
effect this decision will have on
the outcome of the general
elections." Former Foreign Min-
ister Abba Eban, a strong Peres
supporter, said that "Rabin won
because a desire for change was
interpreted as a dismissal."
BUT LIKUD leader
Menachem Beigin declared that
"Mr. Rabin did not gain the real
confidence of his party" Likud
campaign chairman Ezer
Weizman indicated that Rabin
will be Likud's prime target in
the election race.
"The Labor Party has elected a
candidate for the Premiership
who reflects its own image: color-
less and without imagination,"
Former Interior Minister Yosef
Burg of the National Religious
Party said that Rabin's narrow
margin indicated a difficult
period for the Labor Party. He
expressed doubt that the party
can unite around Rabin. Prof.
Yigal Yadin, leader of the New
Democratic Movement for
Change, said Rabin's precarious
victory "reflects a deep crisis
within the Labor Party that will
show up on election day."
BUT NAFALI Feder, political
secretary of Mapam, expressed
satisfaction with the outcome
which, he said, makes it possible
to preserve the Labor Alignment.

election was prefereable to Peres,
but the narrow margin means
that Rabin (Foreign Minister

does the work for Likud."
MEANWHILE, there is a
feeling of uneasiness among some
" Peres supporters that they may
face reprisals for having chal-
lenged the incumbent Prime
Minister. Rabin said at a press

himself as to which portfolio will
be entrusted to Peres. The De-

posts and there are few others of

it would not disband.
"We have to meet, discuss and

we are not hurt for supporting

no one is hurt for supporting

in Egyptian hands less an
estimated 400 million barrels
pumped out by the Israelis
and there are promising new
prospects, especially in the Suez
Gulf. Egyptian reserves have
recently been put at 3.9 billion
barrels, with much vaster quan-
tities of untapped gas. Of all
potential investors, it is in the
oilmen that Cairo has been most
interested. The agreements with
all the companies except one
50-50 deal with Petrobras are
based on the Indonesian model:
the foreign oil companies finance
all exploration and development
costs and undertake to spend a
given amount on exploration over
a period of up to 12 years.
But if a major strike is made,
the Egyptian General Petroleum
Corporation will step in to pay
half the production costs. A joint
company has a contractual life
span of up to 30 years.
WITH THESE arrangements,
Egypt hopes to pump out one
million barrels a day by 1980.
And this is not over-optimistic
according to recent, reliable
reports. By the end of the decade,
predicts former petroleum min-
ister Ezzedin Hilal, "Egypt will
become an oil exporter of some
consequence." If Sadat is looking
to an oil-rich future, he is also
equally interested in promoting
the much-publicized duty-free
industrial zones along the re-
opened Suez Canal. But at the

general complaint about profit

is responsible for three million people.
Sara thinks of the people of Israel millions of
Jews she's never met as part of her own family.
They live in the cities and border towns, immigrant
centers and universities of Israel.
Their needs are very much on Sara's mind.
Each day, they make tremendous sacrifices to keep a
2,000 year-old dreom alive... they pay the highest
taxes in the world, live in overcrowded housing, face
the tension of holding off armies ten times their size.
It doesn't leave much for human needs. That's where
Sara comes in. Her job is to make the children of
Israel strong, to care for immigrants, to enable the
aged to live in dignity.
Sara takes her responsibility very seriously. So do the
millions of men, women and children who count on her help.
