Lampert, who returned from a
I fact-finding mission in Israel a
lew weeks ago, was optimistic in
Ibis appraisal of the work that

arts.
"Many philanthropic en-
Ideavors rest on slogans and catch

MICHAEL Puder-Harris and
Dr. Dennis Tartakow. as co-
chairmen, in a joint statement
said, "All of us are sympathetic
with the needs of Israel but we
have a further responsibility
towards the local residents who
are not able to care for them-
selves. Fund-raising not only
raises money; fund-raising raises
Jews and this geographic area in
the north county with its influx
of young married couples will
require the services of the Jewish
Federation, which is the umbrella
organization for servicing those
needs."

THERE ARE at least a half
dozen Israeli correspondents in
the Egyptian capital and more
arrive each day. Most of them en-
tered Egypt with non-Israeli
passports. These include Ada
Luciano of Rome and Tamar
Golan of Paris, who were sent by
Maariv, Hans Knopp of Amster-
dam and Eliezer Strauch, who are
covering for Yediot Achronot,
and Ben Ami, another Yediot
man from Israel, who made his
first broadcast from Cairo over
Israel's armed forces radio
station.
The biggest stir was created by
Sami Greenspan of Yediot Ach-
ronot, who was the first Israeli
reporter to land at Cairo Airport
with an Israeli passport. He
arrived late night via Rome with-
out an entry visa. He was kissed
on both cheeks by the Egyptian
passport control officer and given
permission for a week's stay in
the country.
GREENSPAN attended Sat-
urday morning services at Cairo's
Great Synagogue. The con-
gregants, mostly people in their
seventies, were overcome by
emotion.
They kissed his Israeli pass-
port with tears in their eyes and
offered prayers for the safety of
Israel, the well-being of the
visiting journalists and for peace.

From His Mouth -- No Kiss
NEW YORK (JTA) Did President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt really kiss Mrs. Meir when the two met at Ben Gurion
Airport upon Sadat's arrival in Israel the night of Nov. 19?
Until now only Sadat and Mrs. Meir really knew. Now Sadat
has decided to tell.
During a brief interview on CBS-TV, the Egyptian leader
was asked, did he or didn't he? The media had reported and
photographs showed Sadat leaning toward the former Israeli
Prime Minister and giving her what looked like a quick smooch.
Sadat, responding to the CBS query, laughed and said he
merely bent over to greet her. "I didn't kiss her. But if I had
kissed her, I would not have been ashamed of it."

Vanessa Redgrave's PLO Push
Vanessa Redgrave, who is currently
starring with Jane Fonda in Julia, a film
about the Nazi era, based on Lilian Hell-
man's memoir Pentimento, appears to have
taken up a new cause the destruction of
the Jewish State.
"She told me Israel has no right to exist,"
comedian Joey Adams reports. "She said
that as long as Israel exists, there will never
be peace in the Middle East so it must be
destroyed."
ACCORDING TO Adams, Redgrave -
who is known for her radical left, Trotskyite
political views telephoned him the other
day to seek the assistance in promoting a
"documentary" on the Arab struggle against
Israel, a film she claimed she had produced
with Yasir Arafat, chief of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Adams, who has helped raise some $200
million for Israel, was stunned.
"I couldn't believe it," he recalled. She ob-
viously didn't know who I was or what I
believed in, or she wouldn't have called me in
the first place. At first, I thought she was
kidding or something. I asked her if her film,
which she said she wanted to get on tele-
vision, was balanced; if it presented both
sides of the Middle East issue. "Oh no," she
said, "there is only one side Israel is a
racist, fascist state and it has to go."
IRONICALLY, Redgrave, as Julia, plays
a Jewish woman who sacrifices her life
fighting the Nazis.
"And she told me the Jews she might
have said the Zionists helped Hitler
during the war," Adams said. She must be
very sick."
Redgrave could not be reached for com-
ment. The Jewish Week

Israel Prepared for Peace 'Any Tone,'Dayan Tells Germans
By JON PIDLER
BONN (JTA) Israel
Ifould be prepared to sign a

time," even before the
xl Geneva conference,
eli Foreign Minister Moshe
[)iyan told a press conference
Ikere at the end of a three-day
lefficial visit to the German
I capital
Dayan said he was "very
happy and satisfied" with the
outcome of his talks with German
political leaders. He had received
assurances that "the German
government will not negotiate
with or recognize the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization as
long as the PLO does not change
its attitude to Israel."
HE 8AID Bonn also promised
to "grant full support to Presi-
dent Sadat's peace move, even
though some Arab countries are
not exactly supporting this
move." Based on these comments
alone, the Dayan visit can be
described as a diplomatic suc-
cess.
Prior to the visit, Israeli
sources had expressed dis-
appointment at Bonn's slow and
hesitant welcome to the Sadat
initiative and irritation at Bonn's
support for the European Eco-

Begin's "true leadership quali-
ties," the President indicated
that while he and they think a
separate Israeli-Egyptian peace
"is not desirable," it could evolve

showed promise of success. He
observed that the U.S. and

coolness both towards the Soviet
Union's Middle East activities
land the proposal Nov. 29 by
I United Nations Secretary Gen-
'eral Kurt Waldheim for a
(separate meeting after Cairo at
ItheUN.
IN HIS long discussions at a
|press conference about Middle
lust proceedings now taking
ace. Carter omitted the Wald-
laeim approach aa a way-station
Ion the road to a "comprehensive"
Battlement at Geneva. He noted
llsrael has already rejected Wald-
Iheim's proposal and then said
that the U.S. has not decided
[whether it would attend the UN
I session.
Israel's rejection amounts to a
Iveto of the Waldheim proposal
which was widely believed to
|have been approved in advance
[by both Washington and Mos-
cow, But the President's views
Indicated he does not favor it.
Saying the U.S. looks on the
I Cairo meeting as "a very con-
structive step," Carter added,
The road toward peace which
has already led through Jeru-
salem will now go through Cairo
I *nd ultimately we believe to a
all the
can be reached among
parties involved."
But, Carter added, "If at some
later date it becomes obvious"
that Jordan, Syria or Lebanon do
"not want peace in a settlement
with Israel, then an alternative
might have to be pursued. But we
certainly have not reached that
point yet."
Carter noted, "Obviously the
leaders in Syria, even Jordan,
certainly the PLO, have not
recognized that Egypt is
speaking for them adequately."
But Sadat in his speech in
Knesset "evoked very clearly
the basic Arab position that I
have understood in my private
conversations" with Syrian
President Hafez Assad and King
Hussein of Jordan, Carter said.
THE REFUSAL of Jordan
and Syria to go to Cairo. Carter
said, has not "dampened Sadat's
commitment or enthusiasm at
all." He said that "to the best of
his ability, President Sadat is
speaking for the Arab world."
Carter said that "at the time we
discovered" Sadat was going to
visit Jerusalem, "we immediately
began to use whatever influence
we had available to us to en-
courage the other nations not to
condemn President Sadat. This
particularly applied to Saudi
Arabia, to Jordan, to the Euro-
pean countries, to the Soviet
Union and to Syria. In some in-
stances, either they decided not
to condemn him or our influence
was successful."
Saying that Begin and Sadat
"have not rejected the concept
that there must be a comprehen-
sive settlement," the President
noted that "in the meantime, we
don't see anything wrong; in
fact, we look with great favor on
the bilateral negotiations bet-
ween Israel and Egypt. In the
meantime, we are trying to in-
duce the Syrians, the Lebanese,
the Jordanians and, as I say
again, in a supportive role, the
Saudis and others, to support
both the ongoing negotiations
that will continue from Jerusalem
into Cairo and also to avoid any
condemnation of Sadat that
might disrupt his influence and
put an obstacle to peace in the
future."
"THAT IS about all we can
do," he continued. "We have no
control over any nation in the
Middle East. When we find the
progress in the Middle East
being stopped, we use all the
initiatives that we can.
"I think this is a major step in
the right direction. We hope later
that Jordan and Syria and
Lebanon will join these discus-
sions either individually or as a
comprehensive group dealing
with Israel directly."
About the Soviet Union, which
has been hostile toward the Sadat
initiative and is cooperating with
anti-Castro Arab governments
and the PLO, the President said
he wished the Soviets had
decided to go to Cairo, "but we
will make as much progress as we
can, following the leadership of
Sadat and Begin."

expense.
But Dayan indicated that some
points of disagreement persist.
He said he had criticized recent
German and EEC support for UN
resolutions condemning the pro-
vision by Israel of better housing
for Gaza Strip Palestinians and
condemning new West Bank
settlements by Israel. "I can't
say after I explained our position
that the German government will
change its policy or position,
though I am grateful that I was
given the opportunity to ex-
plain," he said.
DAYAN TOLD reporters that
he personally would prefer to
have all the Arab countries repre-
sented at the coming Cairo
meeting, adding that in that
event Israel would still only
accept bilateral negotiations with
each country. But "even if
Jordan and Syria don't come, it is
better to deal with Egypt alone
than to have no negotiations at
all."
The Soviet refusal to attend
Cairo "made sense" in view of
anti-Soviet statements by Presi-
dent Sadat. But, Dayan added,
"it is up to the parties not to
the Geneva co-chairmen U.S. and
USSR to decide what, where
and when to negotiate."
Asked about UN Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim's in-
vitation to an umbrella meeting
at the UN, Dayan said: "My
personal view is that face-to-face
negotiations as last week in Jeru-
salem and shortly in Cairo should
be sufficient before Geneva. It is
not necessary to have any further
meetings."
HE SAID that Sadat could, "if
need be," make war or peace
alone, whereas all the other Arab
countries, even together "can't
do so." He believed Jordan and
Saudi Arabia would "not come
out against Sadat, though I don't
know if they will give him
positive aupport." He also did
not know "whether the Egyptian
military forces and people
support him.''
Earlier, Dayan told West
Germany's leaders at a dinner in
his honor here that Israelis were
sorrowed by "the latest anti-
Semitic incidents among youth"
in Germany and "the attempts to
rewrite history and Uhe nostalgia
for the Hitler era in which can be
detected an indulgence toward
Nazi war criminals and their
deeds."
While Dayan mentioned no
specific incidents, he was ob-
viously referring to the recent
symbolic "jew-burning" by
cadets at a Munich officers'
training school, the recent ap-
pearance of books explaining the
"human" side of Hitler and a
controversial documentary film,
Hitler A Career.
DAYAN spoke of his visit to
the site of the notorious Bergen
Belsen concentration camp, his
first act on arriving in Germany.
"One should never forget this
mass annihilation, not to incite
hatred but to hold before the eyes
of youth throughout the world
what happened on this continent
in our generation."
Dayan said, however, that the
Israeli government knew the
German government and its
leaders recognized these dangers
and hoped "that they will take all
necessary measures against such
dangerous occurrences."
One of Dayans departures
from his planned itinerary was to
visit an exhibition on Egyptian
art and history. No Egyptians
were present during his visit.

Editor's Corner
The Waldheim Goof
The upcoming conference in Cairo should be viewed
as another step forward in the long road to a com-
prehensive peace settlement in the Middle East, a step
that follows the successful talks between Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem
Begin in Jerusalem.
That is why many found it difficult to understand
why it took the Carter administration so long to agree to
go to the meeting along with Egypt and Israel.
Harder to understand than the U.S. delay to join
Israel and Egypt in peace talks was the surprise an-
nouncement by United Nations Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim after he said that he will have a repre-
sentative at Cairo that there should be a meeting at the
UN of all parties to the Mideast dispute after the Cairo
conference and before the Geneva conference is held. The
Israelis rightfully rejected this saying with Sadat the next
step after Cairo is the Geneva conference.
How could Waldheim even have imagined that the
UN would be acceptable? Geneva was selected in the first
place to take the Mideast dispute out of the UN where
debates have exacerbated the situation rather than eased
tension.
Was Waldheim acting on his own in an effort to get
the UN into the act, or was he acting for the Soviet Union
Which has been trying to wreck the Sadat initiatives?
Sadat himself outlined the Soviet reasoning most clearly
when he told the Egyptian Peoples Assembly: "The
Soviets wanted us to live in a no-war, no-peace situation
because as they analyzed it, they thought they would not
have a role in the Middle East if peace were established."
Instead of trying to throw a monkeywrench into the
operations, Waldheim should have been using his office to
try to persuade the Soviet Union, Syria, Jordan and
Lebanon to go to Cairo.

Atherton to Head Our
Delegation in Cairo Talks
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Alfred L. Atherton, who will head
the U.S. delegation to the Cairo
conference, is generally recog-
nized here as both an astute dip-
lomat and a leading authority on
the Middle East.
Atherton, 56, has been in-
volved in the State Department's
Middle East affairs since 1965,
and was named Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs
in April. 1974 by then-Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger
HE WAS promoted to that
position in succession to Joseph
J. Sisco, now president of
American University, who had
been advanced to Undersecretary
of State for Political Affairs.
Atherton, as Sisoo's deputy
and in his own right as Assistant
Secretary, has frequently ap-
peared before Congressional
committees and has often ad-
dressed both Jewish and Arab-
American meetings. "He is a
master at double-talk," a frus-
trated Congressman said of him
recently following a committee
said of him recently following a
committee hearing at which
Atherton skillfully parried
questions relating to U.S. views
on Israeli positions.
ATHERTON. born in Pitts-
burgh, took his bachelor's and
master's degrees in history at
Harvard. He served in World
War 11 as an artillery officer and
was appointed a foreign service
officer in 1947.
His posts abroad included
Stuttgart and Bonn in West
German, Damascus and Allepo in
Syria, and Calcutta in India
before his assignment to the
State Department 12 years ago.

I remember a political series
published several years ago
detailing Ghorbal's extensive
anti-Semitic activities in
Argentina and my own vitriolic
comment on it.
A letter to me from the
Egyptian Embassy in Wash-
ington vigorously denied the
truth of the series. I have kept
the letter in my files all this time,

They see a threat to their hege-

THE WHOLE western world
is changing because of the vast

a migration that is causing the
kind of human relations challenge
mainly we. in the U.S.. seem best

more experience with it than, say,
the Europeans, who are only in
the last decade beginning to bear
what often is the frank burden of
it.
At the same time, there is a
disproportionate movement of
import dollars, pounds and
marks from west to east that is
far more disruptive to the sur-
vival index of the western nations
than the movement of the peoples
into the western midst, difficult
as that in itself has been for the
west to bear.
In geopolitical terms, this
means that the Middle Eastern

ironically we continue to call

nations, in fact have us on the

and indifference to the needs of
their own people.

Legislators Confront Puritan Ethic
Part of the joy of my vacation
last summer was the scarcity of
news published with Washington
and Tallahassee datelines. Just
before I left, I had commented
quite strongly on the "chaos" in
both the state and national
capitals which made the political
arena an "American form of
anarchy" led by "functional
idiots." It is with some dismay,
therefore, that I view the call
back to Tallahassee next week.
As someone must have said
many years ago how else
would I know it? the country
can feel safe again now that Con-
gress has gone home, or words to
that effect, since I couldn't find it
in any of my usual quotable
sources (and I would appreciate
hearing from some alert reader).
WELL, Congress is wrestling
with a variety of problems to no
apparent avail, including one
that involves allegations of South
Korean payoffs to a large number
of Congressmen. Ethics are also
the reason for the special Florida
session, and there are few things
that I can think of more likely to
further diminish our confidence
in government than the Florida
Legislature contemplating
"ethics."
We are all aware, as Mark
Twain wrote, that "Nothing
needs reforming as other people's
habits." One then gets the pic-
ture of the Senate deliberating on
the recommendation of its Judi-
ciary-Civil Committee that Dade
Sen. Ralph Poston be repri-
manded and fined $500 for
alleged improprieties resulting
from a business venture in which
he used state facilities, not to say
Edward
Cohen
his legislative influence.
To sort of lend some media
sense to this costly operation for
slapping Ralph Poston on the
wrist, the Senate also will be
presented with another nonsense
resolution dealing with the five
men who have taken the financial
disclosure law into court. "Non-
sense" because it will have no im-
mediate effect, if any at all,
depending as it does on lengthy
court proceedings.
NOW I do not hold with Mark
Twain's other jaundiced com-
ments about our legislators, such
as "It could probably be shown
by facts and figures that there is
no distinctly native American
criminal class except Congress."
But if it is not actual criminal-
ity that dominates the Congress,
there is little doubt that there is
enough remnant of the Puritan
ethic clinging to the legislative
halls to suggest that conflict of
interest is a very difficult matter
for our legislators to handle in
Washington or Tallahassee.
It is in the best tradition of our
Puritan founders that the most
favored of God receive tha
rtest tangible reward. Thus,
instance, for the House to
deny abortion funds for the poor
is in line with the ethic that the
rich having proved their worth
won't have to suffer in that area.
IN HIS book on the republi-
can party and the Puritan ethic.
Fall from Grace, Milton Viorst
cites Puritanism's remarkable
capacity to reconcile two fun-
damentally antithetical forces -
greed and abnegation. In the
United States, this philosophy
(theology?), according to Viorst.

dedicated to the satisfaction of |
man's avarice while sincerely be-
lieving it to be the expression of I
his own virtue."
The defense of Bert Lance,
Southern Baptist though he is.
rested on this Calvinist principle
In other contexts, I hsve ex
pressed my opinion of Ralph Pos
ton as a representative of Dade
County. That he says he plans to
stand for re-election next year
may be only bravado before the j
Senate session, but remembering
the wild demonstration for Bert
Lance when he returned to his
Georgia hometown after re-
signing under fire, one would not |
want to bet against him.
WE HAVE long been aware,
as Emerson wrote, that the only
reward of virtue is virtue;. To,\
pert our legislators to be different
from the rest of us is unrests-
able. I suspect this is one oil"*
underlying factors in our smaii
election turnouts.
This has been attributed to
either legal barriers or into*
venience. but is more likely w
lead to disenchantment with the
notion that elected officials are|
just like the rest of us.

A Painful but Dedicated Search for Peace
By Henry A. Kissinger
former Secretary of State
Kissinger addressed the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress in New
York on Nov. 13. This is adopted
from that speech.
Given my own involvement in
the conduct of foreign policy over
eujht years. 1 have thought it
iiwppropriate since January to
participate in a discussion of day-
\fi4sy tactics. But I would like to
use this occasion to articulate a
few general principles.
First, the desirability of peace
can never be at issue. No people
las suffered more from the
absence of peace than the people
of Israel, every square mile of
whose country is drenched with
the blood of its pioneers and
whose existence has never been
recognized by any of its neigh-
bors. No people can be more
aware of how fragile, and how
precious, are the restraints that
make men and nations civilized.
NO PEOPLE knows more
vividly that morality must be
more than a theory it must be
a constant in human conduct.
And no group of men and women
understands more acutely that
peace depends ultimately not on
political arrangements but on the
conscience of mankind. History is
often cruel, and rarely logical.
and yet the wisest of realists are
those who recognize that fate can
indeed be shaped by human faith
and courage. These qualities are
what brought the State of Israel
into being. This spirit and pride
must be nurtured by all friends of
Israel for they are the ultimate
guarantee of Israel's future.
But faith and courage are not
enough. The people of Israel have
seen too much of the transitori-
ness of human intentions to en-
trust the destiny of their nation
entirely to professions and reas-
surances however sincere and
honestly intended. A peace to be
lasting must be founded on the
self-interest of all the parties and
for peace to be secure it must
Israel strong enough to
its future by its own
effor:
(i. the intentions or
purposes of the Government of
the United States cannot be at
issui No President would
knowingly risk the future of
Israel Nor would he make a deal
to undermine Israel's future for
some global considerations. My
uaintance with President
Carter, Secretary Vance and their
senior advisers convinces me that
iministration would not
deliberately put Israel's security
Hut there is always the
i hat actions undertaken
in good faith may inadvertently
produce unforeseen con-
sequences, n such a miscal-
culation took place, either Israel
would become totally isolated or
diplomacy v would become
abruptly deadlocked. The art of
diplomacy is to move events
carefully and shape them toward
-hu able ends so that neither
the United States nor Israel ever
Juch a -stark, impossible
choice A coordination of policies
between Israel and the United
States is therefore imperative.
THIRD, the perspectives of a
superpower and those of a small
country may occasionally differ.
The United States has enormous
strength; Israel has a much
narrower margin of safety. The
United States can survive trial-
snd-error diplomacy, because we
can always rectify mistakes by
redoubling our efforts. But
Israeli leaders cannot exper-
"nent; they have only one try. If
they guess wrong, they risk the
urvival of the nation. We.
therefore, owe the people of Israel

circumstances all the more so,

braelis must understand the
"nportance of Middle Fast peace
[? the global concerns of the
United States and the Western
*rld. which are indeed th essen-
tial underpinning of Israel's own
security.
Fourth, an overall solution is of
course the ultimate prize. But
realism forces us to recognize
that to achieve it involves issues
of enormous complexity and
parties with an unequal commit-
ment to peace. It also requires a
process that is bound to be
protracted. Thus, while striving
for an overall settlement, we
must take care not to foreclose
other opportunities that may
arise to ease tensions and to
enable the peoples of the area to
build confidence. We must not
give a veto to the most intran-
sigent elements within the area.
We must not permit outside
powers to emerge as the ad-
vocates for a point of view that
penalizes moderation.
Fifth, some structures develop
their own momentum that cannot
be judged by formal declarations
or abstract blueprints. A Pales-
tinian state on the West Bank is
bound to be an element of in-
stability both for Jordan and for
Israel; it will compound the
crisis, not solve it. Such a state
whatever the professions or
guarantees must have ob-
jectives that cannot be com-
patible with the tranquility of the
Middle East. It cannot be an
accident that no attempt to
create such a state was ever made
during the 20 years of Arab rule
in that territory.
SIXTH, any peace settlement
must of necessity involve
guarantees, but they must be
worked out with great care and
with a sense for their limits.
History should teach us that
guarantees by themselves are not
a substitute for security. No
nation should be asked to ab-
dicate its judgment of the
requirements of its survival. Care
must be taken that guarantees do
not provide a pretext for an
outside power to intervene con-
stantly in the affairs of the area.
With respect to bilateral U.S.-
Israeli treaty arrangements,
there is the danger that the rati-
fication process may produce a
debate that paradoxically haz-
ards the friendship and close co-
operation which have served so
well for a generation. In short,
guarantees require the most
careful reflection and study; at
best, they reinforce, they cannot
bring about security.
Seventh, whatever the views
about the desirability of begin-
ning the process of negotiations
with a Geneva conference, so
much effort has been invested in
it that it has become the touch-
stone ot the prospects of peace.
All parties therefore.have a stake
in bringing such a conference into
being. At the same tune, we must
recognize that when it is finally
assembled, Geneva will be an
important achivement, but its
primary significance will be pro-
cedural. Ahead of us will be
complex negotiations about
frontiers, commitments to peace,
security arrangements and other
issues which will test the wisdom
and commitment of the parties.
These issues cannot be left to
the pressures of a conference; it is
not too soon to explore them
actively with the parties. We
cannot wait for Geneva to resolve
all the complexities that range
from the relations of sub-groups
to the main conference to the
concrete outlines of a definition of
peace. Especially as far as Israel
is concerned, it is incompatible
with our historic relationship to
deal with issues of such gravity
in an atmosphere of self-imposed
deadlines. And it does not help
those Arab leaders who have had
the wisdom and the courage to
begin the journey towards peace
to raise expectations that cannot
be fulfilled.
GENEVA will be successful to
the extent that Israel and the
United States end the cycle of
rear and reassurance, of outraged
protest and soothing generalities
and turn to the elaboration of a
common concrete approach. This
requires a willingness on one side
to give the benefit of the doubt
and a readiness on the other to
understand the anguish of a
people whose historic suffering
precludes the abdication of its
own judgment, but whose
martyrs guarantee that the
search for peace, while painful,
will be dedicated and committed.

How Soviets Use Psychiatry to Suppress Dissidents
By LYNNE IANNIELLO
Executive Manager
ADL Communications Division
Andrei Dubrov was lucky. He
was released from Moscow's Psy-
chiatric Hospital No. 3 after only
two weeks. He was 22 years old, a
former student who had been ex-
pelled for dissident activity.
Soviet authorities put him in the
hospital for "observation." The
reason: He refused to join the
Red Army after a last-minute
revocation of permission to emi-
grate to Israel with his mother.
He shared a ward with 19
others, "naked men ... tied down,
writhing in convulsions, issuing
wild cries. From time to time, an
orderly gives them a punch in the
stomach ... They quiet down for
a time, just moan ... almost all of
them are injected with aminazin
(a Tranquilizer) ... The ward is
permeated by a sickening smell of
rotting; the patients perform
their natural functions on the
beds they are tied to ... "
AFTER TWO weeks, as Wes-
tern publicity and protests
mounted in his behalf, Dubrov
was discharged following
interrogation by a commission of
Soviet doctors. The questions
they asked were curiously non-
medical in character: "Do you in-
tend to be politically active in the
West?" "Will you take part in
the Zionist movement in Israel?"
Dubrov's case is one of more
than 200 described by Sidney
Bloch and Peter Reddaway in
their book. Psychiatric Terror:
How Soviet Psychiatry is Used
to Suppress Dissent" (Basic
Books). The work, which details
the evolution and character of
Soviet psychiatry, was timed for
ence, had sent to Western psy-
chiatrists documented reports of
his own incarceration, as well as
that of other dissidents.
HE WAS finally released in
1976, following strong Western
campaigns in his behalf, and now
lives in Bonn, Germany.
"This time, it was different,"
Dr. Bloch said. "Even more im-
portant than the vote to censure
was a 121 to 66 vote to establish a
permanent committee to inves-
tigate the political manipulation
of psychiatry anywhere in the
world."
Countries suspected of using
psychiatric "treatment" to sup-
press dissent include South
Africa, Rumania, Czecho-
slovakia, Chile and Argentina.
But the evidence is scanty or
inconclusive.
"THERE IS no doubt." Dr.
Bloch said, "that Soviet psychia-
trists have labeled dissenters
mentally ill and hospitalized
them solely becuase of their poli-
tical activities."
Diagnoses include such things
as "sluggish schizophrenia" and
"paranoid delusions of reforming
society." They are made by a
relatively small number of Soviet
psychiatrists, "a sort of elite
group," described by Dr. Bloch
as being'' made up of doctors who
became important partly because
of their political astuteness.
They recognize what the party
wants and give it to them a
formula in which dissent can be
paired with mental illness."
Then, in the prison and civil psy-
chiatric hospitals, more and more
doctors are involved.

publication just prior to the sixth
congress of the World Psy-
chiatric Association held in
Honolulu the last week of
August.
It is credited with playing a
large role in that group's censure
of the Soviet Union's "system-
atic abuse of psychiatry for
political purposes."
IN NEW YORK for a series
of interviews and television
appearances. Dr. Bloch. a British
psychiatrist and lecturer in psy-
chiatry at Oxford University,
talked about the conference and
the book. "At last," he said, "the
World Psychiatric Association
has gotten off the fence and acted
in a morally responsible fashion."
PROMINENTLY opposed,
too, were Scandinavian asso-
ciations which favored talking to
the Russians, "and who knows
what other groups were opposed,
perhaps because of skepticism,
perhaps because of fear of giving
the entire field of psychiatry a
black eye."

Bloch as 'a doubtful psychia-

author. Peter Reddaway, a senior
lecturer in political science at
the London School of Economics,
as unqualified. Their "so-called
book," the Russians said, is "a
been hospitalized for non-medical
reasons. There is no way of
knowing how many such people
remain in Soviet psychiatric in-
stitutions or how many more will
be confined."
The Honolulu conference rep-
resents a positive step, he said.

"The book," Dr. Bloch said,
"represents six years of research,
of collecting evidence, of inter-
viewing Soviet emigrants psy-
chiatrists and dissenters who had
"It created the machinery to
monitor psychiatric abuse. It also
set the stage for worldwide pre-
test and that, more than any-
thing else, is what will stop the
practice and get people released."
Sadat Saddens U.S. Arabs
"THERE IS a problem of dual
loyalty to the patient and to
the employer, which is the
government."' Dr. Bloch said. It
starts, he went on. with social
conditioning. The psychiatrists,
who take an oath "to be guided
by the principle of communist
morality." may really believe
that "those who disagree with
the political system are strange.
And if they do not, then they are
dissenters. It is easier to play
along."
There have been doctors who
raised questions or protested and
were warned not to make prob-
lems or were themselves arrested.
Do the psychiatrists need psy-
chiatry? "That's been dis-
cussed," Dr. Bloch said. "It's a
frightening thought."
But at the Honolulu meeting,
internationally-known Prof. An-
drei Snezhnevsky, whose theories
on schizophrenia effected the use
of psychiatry to stifle dissent,
called criticism a "malicious con-
coction ... a psychiatric variant
of anti-Soviet propaganda."

when a resolution commending
Sadat and Prime Minister
Menachem Begin was adopted
without dissent.
Dr. M. T. Mehdi. president of
the American Arab Relations
Council that supports the PLO,
said Sadat is "a well-meaning
fool" and his speech to the
Egyptian Parliament was "a
great disappointment" because
"it did not contain any Israeli
concessions."
Joseph Baroody of Washing-
ton, president of the National
Association of Arab Americans,
said, "What Sadat did
dramatically changed the
situation. He took serious risks.
He has put two governments on
the spot namely the United
States and Israel. Both now have
to do things the U.S. in a
passive role of encouraging the
Israelis to reaction in kind to
Sadat's gestures. The Israelis
now have a choice of recip-
rocating or not. The only
responsible Israeli act is to recip-
rocate or cut Sadat adrift.''

initiatives,
this action
said he had "grave
over the Sadat
"I question whether
on Sadat's part on
behalf of Arab countries will bear
fruit" since he thinks "any nego-
tiations" such as the Cairo
meeting "without Syria's parti-
cipation and the Palestinians
properly represented through
their legitimate representatives
the PLO will succeed."
Shadyac added, however, that
"as an American 1 am greatly
encouraged by the humanistic
approach that is developing in
the Middle East and the state-
ments both by Egypt and Israel
pledging no more war to be very
favorable in terms of climate."
A WASHINGTON repr*
sentative of the Association of
Arab American University Grad-

pamphlets and books hostik

his organization is "an education
group" and "non-political" and
therefore "may not take a
position."

Federation's Israel Mission Sets Pace for '78 CJA-IEF
By RONNI TARTAKOW
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Thirty-eight members of the
Palm Beach County Jewish com-
munity traveled to Israel Uv
month on the first Jewish
Federation-sponsored com-
munity mission. This "Encounter
with Jewish History" provided
the mission participants the
opportunity to travel the entire
Jewish State.
Led by Jeanne Levy, Women's
Division president and Barbara
Shulman, campaign chairman of
Women's Division, the group
arrived in Israel on Nov. 14 for
the two-week learning experience.
IN ISRAEL, they visited the
universities and listened to
lecturers. They visited Yamit, a
new settlement on the Mediter-
ranean, and proclaimed the new
town a "sister-city" to Palm
Beach County. They wept at Yad
Vashem, where they saw pictures
and mementos of the destruction
of the Jewish people. They
prayed at the Western Wall, and
saw Jerusalem of Gold." Thev
noted the young Israeli children
and the fact that there is no free
education beyond the ninth grade
due to a lack of funds.
They climbed Masada, visited
Tel Aviv, bathed in the Dead Sea,
and traveled to the Good Fence
on the Lebanese border. They
visited absorption centers and
saw families from all parts of the
world being brought together in
Israel, and while visiting
Tiberias, they were caught up in
the greatest peace-making"
story of all time, President
Sadat's visit to Israel.
"Going to Israel for my first
visit," stated Pauline Raskin,
"has become an experience above
and beyond my greatest ex-
pectations ... seeing the beautiful
country, its structures, its
Weight members of the Palm ^*^lffi%M
|Mfty traveled to Israel. Pictured fl6 " '"rriet Fine, Yonkel, the bus driver, Betty Stone, ma
Blau and Zviha, their guide.
Thi
monuments, its memorials, its
universities, hospitals and
biblical sights, makes me want to
return to this wonderful land of
milk and honey."
THE ABESONS of North
Palm Beach said they were most
impressed with the "vitality of
the people. They are pioneers,
alive ... in the way they move,
walk, talk and feel. We saw a
tremendous change since our last
visit to Israel 13 years ago ...
everything is different. Yad
Vashem was the most touching of
all," stated Mrs. Abeson. "We
saw a soldier break down at the
sight of this horrible destruc-
tion."
Part of the soldiers' basic
training is a tour of Yad Vashem,
the memorial to the six million
killed in the Holocaust.
"We were not raised as
religious Jews," stated Eugene
Lew in of Boca Raton, as he
discussed his feelings about his
first visit to Israel. "We became
cognizant of our heritage. It was
the most beautiful thing that has
ever happened to my wife and
me."
FOR ARNOLD and Marilyn
Lampert of North Palm Beach,
they said the trip proved to be a
reaffirmation of their belief in the
need for a "strong State of Israel.
Our visit to the Absorption
Center really scared me," stated
Arnold Lampert. "Seeing
children, mostly from areas in
South Africa. Rhodesia, and
South America (supposedly free-
world countries), emigrating to
Israel, emphasized the growing
anti-Semitism in these places.
The costs for absorbing these
people into Israel is increasing
tremendously. It made me aware
of the great need for U JA dollars
to help with this process." he
said.
"When we visited the National
Cemetery in Jerusalem, the point
came home again," stated
Lampert. "As we stood at the
grave of Yoni Netahanyu, the
soldier killed at Entebbe, we
understood that we are all
brothers and that every Jew
must be responsible for every
other Jew."
Dr. and Mrs. Arthur Virshup
stated, "We saw the joy and hope
in the faces of the youth of the
country ... their eagerness to live
and learn. We were amazed by
what has been accomplished in 30
years. We came home proud to be
Jewish and we want our children
to be proud of their heritage.
"At first there was a general
feeling of 'disbelief,' stated
Seymour Fine as he described the
mood in Israel during the Sadat
visit. "The disbelief was followed
by euphoria and then a wait and
see attitude. Most felt that there
will be years of negotiation before
things are settled; his visit didn't
solve the problem, but it did open
a door."
"The patriotism and in-
dustriousncss (in Israel) are
similar to what we had in the
United States during the early
'40s," stated Victor and Nancy
Ratner. "Crime is low ... you can
walk the streets at night any-
where in Israel." The Ratners
said they also were impressed by
the youth of the country. "They
are clean, healthy, exuberant and
busily occupied with making
their country a good place to
live."
Norman Schimelman,
executive director of the Jewish
Federation, summed up the trip
by stating, "Israel needs us, they
need to feel us and touch us. We
all need to go ... we mast go."
Barbara Shulman, co-leader of
the mission, has produced a
documentary of the trip to Israel,
to be shown on the Jewish Feder-
ation-sponsored television
program Mosaic, to be broadcast
on WPTV-Channel 5. The date
and time will be announced.

Fines Find "New
Cousins in Israel
99
When Seymour and Harriet
Fine left for Israel with the 36
other members of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County's first Community
Mission, they were unaware that
this trip would include a personal
experience for them.
"While visiting in Tel Aviv, we
decided to look up my family
name in the phone book." stated
Seymour Fine. "We saw the
name Farfel. which was our
family name when they lived in
Europe, and we contacted them.''
To their surprise, they found
family members they "didn't
even know existed."
THE FINES spent several
evenings with Elka and David
Farfel, their "newly discovered"
Israeli cousins, learning about
the family's past and how they
came to Israel.
During World War II. the
family lived in a shtetl in
Nieswiez. Poland. When the
Germans invaded, the Jews of
the town burned their ghetto
rather than surrender to the
Nazis. They fled to the woods to
fight the Germans. Many lost
their lives. In 1947 the Farfels
had the opportunity to go to the
United States through the
sponsorship of a cousin there.
Instead, they chose to go to
Israel.
Today, they have three
children, the oldest son is a
doctor, the second is a phar-
macist and their daughter is
presently serving in the Israeli
army.
THE FARFELS presented the
Fines with a recently published
book about the town in Poland
where Fine's father was born.
The book had the following in-
scription: ... "To My Dear
Cousin Sy ... In memory of our
meeting in Israel, and to indicate
the brotherhood of our remnant
family, I hereby donate you the
Yzkor book of our home town
Niesviesh. In this book, you will
find all the information about our
forefathers, how they lived and
how their community was
destroyed."
When Seymour Fine (left) and his wife Harriet (right) visited
Israel last month on the Jewish Federation-sponsored com-
munity mission they discovered family they didn't know
existed. Pictured with them are Elka and David Farfel, cousins
from Ramat Gan, Israel.
By RUTH and
AL WERLINSKY
"Trying to select a highlight
from our first trip to Israel is like
trying to say what is the greatest
wonder in the world, after seeing
what has been accomplished
there in the last 30 yiars.
We saw the new architecture in
Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the new
town of Yamit being built in the
middle of the Sinai Desert, and
the young people and their
children. We also saw things that
we read about in Sunday school,
like the shepherds and their
flocks of sheep on the mountain-
sides, and the archaeological site
being unearthed by layers, and
vast deserts filled with the
flowers of Israel.
WE ALSO saw men returning
from the Wall on Shabbat, after
having their own minyan. We
saw immigrant children from
Europe, South America and
Africa being put together, all
strangers, and knowing in a few
months that they all would be
brothers speaking Hebrew.
We saw the universities with
their sophisticated surroundings
and equipment. We were there
while Sadat was making his
historical trip. We went to the
Good Fence, driving along the
Jordan River. We sat in the Dead
Sea, and went to Masada.
We would go on, but we shall
end with sincere thanks to
Barbara, Jean and Norm for their
capable planning of this mission.
We hope everyone can experience
visiting this wonder of the
world."

Arab or non-Arab, as an unter-
mensch, to borrow Nazi term-
inology (an inferior, one who
cannot own property, engage in
business, etc.). Additionally,
Sadat has abandoned the oft-
stated Arab goal of the elim-
ination of Israel as a State. The
Arab position, until now, has
been not to accept this "infidel,"
inferior non-Muslim State as an
enclave in an Arab world.
Heretofore, the Arab meaning of
the words, "peace in the Middle
East," has been the step-by-step
destruction of the State of Israel.
If one needs convincing, witness
the recent attempt to eliminate
non-Muslim Arabs (Christian
Arabs) in Lebanon.
IN 1977, Western nations
realize that the acceptance of
differing cultures and religions
within state boundaries is the
only way to build national and
world peace and freedom. We
hope that Arab leaders will
understand this and try to make
the Arab peoples understand that
these are new times and that new
understandings are necessary if
the world is to survive.
Not settlements, not
territories, not refugees, not past
hurts, not past wars, but this
single concept of acceptance of
the existence and human value of
the non-Muslim, is the key to the
possibility of peaceful side by
side existence of Muslim Arabs
and Israeli Jews, of Muslim
Arabs, and both Arab and non-
Arab Christians.
Thus, Sadat's visit to Israel
means, at the very least, the
acceptance of non-Muslims at
least as worthy of recognition
and existence. This is the only
sine qua non for Israel. Given the
right to peaceful co-existence, all
problems are negotiable and
subject to solution.
OF COURSE, Americans are
delighted that strong American
support of Israel has finally
resulted, in however small a way,
in a breakthrough. Once again
the United States will have pro-
tected its only democratic Middle
East ally, safeguarded its oil life-
line, and maintained its presence
and influence in the area vis-a-vis
the Russians. The question of
whether or not there should have
been a road map entitled "This Is
An American Initiative" i
academic. President Carter has
led the way in welcoming Sadat's
bid for peace. Quite correctly, he
also has stated our support for
the proposed Cairo conference.
This reinforces Sadat's statement
that the Cairo conference will be a
forum for whoever "will come."
It seems to us that a much
more promising climate will
result from a "Cairo," an arena
where those who appear, will in
doing so, endorse Sadat's caveat,
namely, that "We accept to live
in peace with you."
This is the beginning, from
which all negotiations must flow.

influences in their part of the
world as a quid pro quo in-
fluences which once were ad-
mittedly colonial, influences
obviously now no longer so, but
which they continue for the sake
of political advantage to brand as
colonial, calling them "Zionist,"
"imperialist," "racist."
These are highly emotional
charges for at-home African and
Arab consumption largely
designed to justify their one-
sided relationship to us and to
"safely govern home." as Shake-
speare put it. but they are
meaningless in terms of today's
realpolitik.
TO BE specific, they are self-
serving lies. In the case of the
Israel-Egypt peace initiative,
which in Libya last week they
approached as if it were the
bubonic plague, this is the first
genuinely indigenous movement
the area has known since the
birth of the Israel-Arab impasse
thirty years ago.
It would be nice to dismiss this
political paradox as a Middle
East-African problem ex-
clusively. Unfortunately, that,
too, would be a self-serving lie,
this one in our behalf, designed to
disguise the kind of greed that is
characteristic of the nouveaux
riches generally, which certainly
the west never managed to avoid
either. Why should we expect the
Arabs and the Africans to avoid
it now that it is their turn at bat?
Indeed, the way in which the
west and its "allies," for example
Russia, have reacted to the
Israel-Egypt initiative dis-
qualifies us from claiming it as a
western initiative under any
circumstances and makes the
Arab-African determination to
call it that all the more absurd.

language which will help us get
on the road to peace," Begin is
quoted to have said.
Begin further told YmUot
correspondent in London that the
talks in Cair are the beginning
of a long way and not an easy
way," but that he is full of faith
and belief. "Sadat's statements
in public, and things he said in
private talks convinced me of his
candid intentions to reach a peace
agreement." Begin said.
initiative. The Russians are as
transparent as any other schizo-
phrenic. But last week,
Menachem Begin was in London
essentially begging Prime Min-
ister Callaghan to appreciate the
new turn of events as a possible
boon to future generations, and
he frankly failed.
After all. Callaghan demanded
to know what if the other Arabs,
that is to say those who met in
Algeria, turn the oil faucet off
again? What if Qadaffi and
Arafat prevail and not. say,
Assad? How could Callaghan
possibly appreciate peace at the
expense of Britain's comfort?
Here was Whitehall, the
criminal of the Mandate era, in a
new show that ignorance is
revelation, that history teaches
nothing, that the capacity to
make amends for past sins is not
an experience governments
cotton to.
OR TAKE President Carter,
himself, the prophet of peanuts,
who wanted to be the Mideast
messiah all on his own. and who
has now been cast aside so
rudely, for all the Sadat-Begin
claims to the contrary, by the
adversaries-suddenly-turned-
friends. Carter's resentment has
been less than skilfully disguised,
to say the least.
What the Americans. French.
Russians, .el al. understand best
is solution by division. Fight a
war; then resolve the ideological
struggle that no military
maneuver can resolve, which is to
say. create two new independent
fountainheads of the unresolved
problem, the allegedly Com-
munist (east-dominated) entity
ultimately to gobble up the
allegedly democratic (west-dom-
inated) entity by tacit agreement
between the warring parties, the
west perfectly willing to accept
the suicidal arrangement
because, until their Armageddon,
they can exploit the arrangement
economically.
What it looks like objectively
is this: the west and the west
dominated entity, like an ostrich,
bury their heads in the sand I
past experience has taught them
nothing, preferring instead to Ma
the resolution as an end; the i
and the east-dominated entity
the division merely as another
stage in the final war.
For example: two Koreas, two
Vietnams, two Chinas, two
Germanys.
WHAT Jimmy Carter and,
presumably Jimmy Callaghan,
are preaching increasingly these
days is two Palestines, joining
the Arabs in this absurdity in
order to ignore the fact that the
or-ginal Palestine partition plan
of Nov. 30, 1947 established one
Palestine and one Israel.
In the 1948 war. Jordan an-
nexed the first Palestine to make
it her West Bank, now occupied
by Israel. Why, then, a second
Palestine? To which western
opportunism can only respond:
why not?
Ashraf Ghorbal's appearance
before the Synagogue Council of
America is as profound an answer
to this question couched in
Egypt's own fear of a second
Palestine entity as was Anwar
Sadat's appearance before the
Knesset in Jerusalem.
It is, despite the western
concern that things are getting
out of hand their hand a
prophecy of a separate
Egypt peace, however
Washington, London
Moscow resent it, and how*
much the other Arab natk
insist they will not tolerate it.
THE Israel-Egypt peace
ative shows what liars we

Unless there's profit we can
to turn in it, we don't give,

The Aftermath of Victory
By Dr. Harry Z. Selectman
Rabbi of
Congregation Anahei Sbolom
Having just concluded a
festival which celebrated a
victory of Jewish tradition over
Hellenistic paganism, "we are
reminded that the Jewish
tradition is one which responds to
history, for this festival, which is
Chanukah, celebrates the first of
the post-Biblical experiences
which have left a permanent
imprint on the Jewish calendar.
Unlike Biblical festivals, whose
roots lie in events and
phenomena beyond the pale of
verifiable historical memory,
Chanukah celebrates events that
are well attested from a variety of
sources and that can be dated
with precision that is denied us
with respect to all Biblical
holidays. The institution of the
Chanukah celebration as a
permanent fixture of the litur- formula. 'Who has commanded

SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
VAYIGASH
"And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they
had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt,
Jacob, and all his seed with him" (Gen. 46.6).
Vayigaah Judah approached Joseph and offered
himself as a servant in Benjamin's stead, as he was
responsible for the youngest son to their father. Unable to
contain himself any longer, Joseph revealed himsplf to his
dumb-struck brothers. He bade them return to Canaan,
gather together their families and possessions and return
to Egypt for the duration of the famine. At Beersheba God
removed Jacob's doubts as to the wisdom of this course of
action; He appeared to Jacob with the words: "Fear not to
go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great
nation" (Genesis 46.3).
Jacob came to Egypt "with seventy souls." Joseph
gave them the land of Goshen to settle in. There they
flourished and multiplied.

certitude that God is present in

teachings can activate humanity,
if we are willing to respond to
them.
IN THE last weeks, we have
all been witness to a turn of
events in the history of our
people that not very long ago
would have been dismissed as
impossible. The leaders of two
nations that have been at war
thirty years have sat together
and embraced a commitment to
renounce armed conflict with
each other. I know that 1 echo the
prayer of all that both Israel and
Egypt will soon celebrate a new
kind of victory, a victory not of
one side over the other, but a
victory of both sides over fear
and moral lassitude. Such a
victory could bring a new and
important rededication. We pray
that the Almighty will grant both
Prime Minister Begin and
President Sadat Israel and the
Arabs the courage and
strength to recognize His
presence in history, and to
inaugurate a new Chanukah, a
new kind of renewal for Israel,
Egypt and the Middle East, as a
whole.
We are often reluctant to
ascribe historical events to God's
influence, for then the question is
immediately raised concerning
His hand in the calamities that
befell our people, where the in-
nocent were slain with the
wicked. However, we cannot
discern God's presence only in
victory, for then it would make of
His presence a transient and
temporary existence. We cannot
ask the most common question,
Why?"
Our tradition, therefore, chose
another conception of
Providence. Rather than pin-
pointing God as cause of certain
specific events, the Jewish people
have always evaluated the effect
of those events on our quest for
God.
IT IS significant that
historians usually condemn the
Maccabees for betraying their
religious mandate, because a
dynasty which began with a
struggle for religious freedom,
moved to the seizure of political
power, and ended with a nation
that took on the characteristics of
many other nations of its era.
Nevertheless, even the political
quest of the Maccabees was
suffused with a search for God
and His precepts. The religious
significance which has averred to
the Chanukah lights reflects the
sanctification of that synthesis of
religious and national
aspirations.
There have been other re-
dedications and redefinitions of
national values since the Mac-
cabees, such as compilations of
the great classics of rabbinic
literature the mishna,
midrashim and the two Talmuds,
without which Judaism would be
unrecognizable today. The
centrality of the synagogue
represented an institutional
response to the same historical
circumstances.
&*&***&*+&-&^o>
Today, the message of
Chanukah ought to remind us
that we live in the shadow of
events as momentous as any in
our long history. Both in the
United States, and in Israel, we
are collectively experiencing a
rebirth, and consequently a
challenge to respond to our past
and present with a renewal of
religious and national will.

HE SAID the "positive voice"
heard in Jerusalem and Cairo
would prevail over the "negative
voice" at the Arab opposition
conference in Tripoli, Libya last
week.
Begin's talks with Callaghan
were described as warm and
informal and wide-ranging and
full of substance. Callaghan was
quoted as saying that the Sadat-
Begin meeting in Jerusalem gave
new hope to the Middle East and
Begin replied that he would take
advantage of the new situation
with vigor.
Both agreed on the need to aim
for a comprehensive Middle East
settlement and not one limited to
Israel and Egypt.
BRITISH sources said there
was no argument on the issue of a
"Palestinian homeland," British
support of which has drawn
criticism from Israel. The sources
said that Begin recognized that
there was a Palestinian problem
that had to be solved.
One issue on which dis-
agreement was openly admitted
was the Arab boycott of Israel.
Despite frequent Israeli com-
plaints, the Foreign Office will
not change its practice of authen-
ticating certificates of "non-
Israeli origin" of goods imported
by Arab countries from British
firms.
Begin's visit here has aroused
intense interest, not only because
he is the first Israeli Prime Min-
ister to come to Britain officially
as the guest of the government
but because 30 years ago, as
leader of the underground Irgun,
he headed the British "wanted"
list in Palestine.
CALLAGHAN referred to that
past era when he paid tribute to
Begin's "determination and
decisiveness in the days when we
were hunting you." He said it

was those same qualities that
would enable the Israeli leader to
surmount the obstacles on the
road to peace with the Arabs.
Begin, accompanied by his
wife, Aliza, arrived at Heathrow
Airport Friday morning where he
was greeted by Dr. David Owen,
the British Foreign Secretary,
David Kidron, Israel's
Ambassador and leaders of the
Anglo-Jewish community.
Addressing a large crowd of
dignitaries and journalists as he
stepped from his plane, he
declared, "I bring from Jeru-
salem a suggestion to renew
the covenant signed by the
Jewish people and the British
people 60 years ago on that
unforgettable day, Nov. 2,1917."
He was referring to the Balfour
Declaration.
The warm welcome accorded
Begin was marred by protests by
Palestinian and pro-Palestinian
groups. About 500 people, in-
cluding many Palestinian
students, marched through
London denouncing Israel and
Sadat's peace initiative.
ADL Registers Protest
Of Argentine Jails
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
A vigorous protest against anti-
Semitism in Argentine jails and
the recent decree against Jacobo
Timerman, one of the most prom-
inent Jews in Argentina, were
registered at the Argentine Em-
bassy several days ago by repre-
sentatives of the Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
Dr. Norman M. Wall, chairman
of the ADL's Latin American
Affairs Committee, asked that
the Argentine government in-
vestigate and bring an end to
physical abuse of Jews under
detention and the use of Nazi
symbols and recordings in
security installations.
THE ADL delegation, which
included the committee's vice
chairman, Gerald Quiat, and
Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthal,
charged that the decree against
Timerman, former editor-pub-
lisher of La Opinion, made him a
political prisoner and called for
his release.
Timerman was arrested in
April, 1977 for alleged subversive
acts and economic crimes. When
government investigations
produced no basis for preferring
charges against him, a decree was
issued on Nov. 11 which stripped
Timerman of his civil rights and
ordered his indefinite detention,
without charges.
His property has been placed
in custody of the state and his
newspaper is now controlled by
the army.
IN A REPORT to the 64th
annual meeting of the ADL's
national commission, Rosenthal,
director of the ADL's Latin
American Affairs Department,
said that negative trends have
offset positive developments in
matters affecting the Argentine
Jewish community during the
past year.
One disturbing trend, he said,
is the intimidation of Jewish
leadership, as indicated by the
Timerman case, and the kid-
napping of the son of Dr. Ne-
hemias Resnizky, president of
the DA I A, the representative
body of Argentine Jewry.
It took three days to secure the
son's release, after which he left
the country.
ANOTHER disturbing factor,
Rosenthal reported. is the
prevalence of anti-Semitism
within the penal-security system.
A third factor, affecting all
Argentine citizens, is the
prevailing repressive conditions
in the country.
"So long as the Argentine
government, as a matter of
policy, permits security agents
dressed in civilian clothing to
routinely kidnap individuals and
hold them indefinitely without
acknowledging that they are
prisoners, the security of all Ar-
gentine citizens will be tenuous,"
Rosenthal said.
"Jews will be in greater peril
because of the prevalence of anti-
Semitic sentiment among
members of the security ser-
vices."
MEANWHILE. Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance, who was in
Argentina on the first leg of a
tour of South America, met with
human rights groups and with
representatives of the Jewish
community in Buenos Aires.
The Jewish delegation re-
portedly expressed concern over
evidence of anti-Semitism in the
decision to cancel Timerman's
political rights. Before going to
Argentina, Vance had been asked
to look into the situation
regarding human rights and
reported anti-Semitism.

Cairo with an Egyptian body-
guard and an official car and
driver provided by the Ministry
of Information. He was told that
since his arrival, he received so
much publicity, "we have to pro-
tect you from subversive
elements."
SO FAR, the only protection
needed seems to be from souvenir
hunters. Anything of Israeli
origin is suddenly in great
demand in Cairo. Israel-made
cigarettes and Israeli coins are
the most desired items. Israeli
journalists draw crowds wherever
they are recognized, but it is a
friendly curiosity.
Knopp reported a chance
meeting with an Egyptian gen-
eral at an airline office. The
general asked him to convey
regards to Israeli Defense Minis-
ter Ezer Weizman who he said he
regarded as one of the best air
force officers in the world. Weiz-
man formerly commanded Is-
rael's Air Force.
Strauch, who has been meeting
with Egyptian editors, reported
that political circles in Cairo
regard the Syrian and Palestine
Liberation Organization rejection
of President Anwar Sadat's peace
initiatives as a blessing.
The absence of those elements
from the Cairo conference will
allow negotiations to proceed
without the threat of a crisis in
the initial stages, they say.
