"On a card for card basis we are

SHULMAN went on to say
how pleased he was with the

Most miracles are not planned.
However, through inspiration,
dedication, and a strong commit-

miracles can be created.

program designed to pay tribute
to "miracles" created by the
WOmen's concerned efforts and
commitment on behalf of the
Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel

IN THE past year the event
has achieved national recognition
by receiving the 1077 Public
Relations Award from the
Council of Jewish Federations

exciting event of the season," the
program will include a cham-
pagne supper, a designer fashion
show, and many added surprises.
The history we have had with
the Jewish Federation has
developed into a good strong
partnership," stated Ivan Ward,
store manager of the West Palm

added. "Our food manager, Peter
Gouletas, is preparing a very
attractive menu for the cham-
pagne supper, and Bill Kostel-

the mood for the event."

Sadat Telegraphs Message
We grow pessimistic about the outcome of the Israeli-
Egyptian peace talks. The reason has much to do with
Prime Minister Begins charge this week that the United
States has come out openly as an advocate of Egypt's
But that is putting the cart before the horse. The real
issue is that the talks, as former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger observed in Atlanta last week, have moved from
the bargaining chambers in Jerusalem and Cairo to the
front pages of the world press.
President Sadat telegraphed his intention to play to
the gallery when, at the outset, he joined Begin in a public
declaration to keep the press at arm's length because only
under* that circumstance could their deliberations be
successful rather than a Madison Avenue-orchestrated
Too many of us did not read the pious Sadat intention
correctly. Too many of us took him at his word rather than
prepare ourselves for just the opposite.
For just the opposite is in fact what is now occurring.
Egypt's Sadat is not so much in the midst of hopeful
negotiations for a Middle East peace as he is in the midst
of a propagandistic carnival where he seems to be running
away with all the prizes.
Israel's Propaganda Deficiences
What Israel had better come to grips with, and
quickly, is that she has never managed her public relations
affairs properly, relying instead on worn-out saws in
volving the Holocaust, the painful Diaspora experience,
and the historic Jewish right to the land of Israel.
These things work well enough for us as Jews. They
stimulate our determination to support Israel in every
way. They appeal to our need to see the unhappy
European Jewish experience through millennia of history
But they mean nothing to the rest of the world which,
need anyone be reminded?, was responsible for the
unhappy European Jewish experience, took delight in it.
and is essentially indifferent to its consequences on Jews
They mean nothing to an uninformed American press
which gullibly takes the bait in viewing Sadat as the Lone
Ranger of the Arab world and which increasingly pillories
Israel on its editorial pages.
Why does Israel continue to grind it out?
The Arabs, on the other hand, and Sadat particularly,
are now engaged in a propaganda war of vast and skillful
proportion. The shift in U.S. policy away from Israel's
view is the direct consequence of Sadat's successes thus
If Israel continues to be deficient even amateurish
in its public relations, none of the wars in which she
triumphed since 1948 will amount to a hill of beans. The
U.S. State Department is getting ready to see to that.

separatism is a system of cultural
philosophies rather than an
individual or individuals
representing a political
philosophy born from the
political needs of separate
cultural groups. Our own ex-
periment in political separatism
was brief and rejected as absurd.
It began and ended during the
Black revolution of the 1960's,
when a number of Black leaders

notions of political separatism
out of existence then, we are now

prepared to learn some grave

experience, there is money behind

indifferent to Americas past. Its
purpose, like the fledgling Black
experience before it, is not to
integrate, but to separate.
More to the point, we are not
so much being led toward this
separatism as we are actively and
enthusiastically endorsing it
because we fail to see the wolf's
political element in the move-
ment disguised in the sheep's
clothing of cultural pluralism.
I SAID in a column here last
week that American separatism
began as an academic
phenomenon following World
War II as a consequence of our
demand for the instantaneous
development of a scientific and
technological elite bred at the
expense of the humanities.
The consequences of this, I
noted, was the establishment of
an academic zombie class a
generation of illiterate techno-
freaks graduated from colleges
and universities with depressed
standards of excellence.
Since that time, the situation
has worsened. While we have
finally begun to heed the voices
warning us against the inad-
visability of separating science
and technology from the rest of
the academic curriculum, while
we have finally begun to move
toward reuniting these dis-
ciplines with the humanities on
the equivalent basis they once
enjoyed or nearly so we
have at the same time launched
into a new separatism, the
cultural separatism to which I
have already referred.
CULTURAL separatism is
potentially far more dangerous to
the nation than academic
separatism ever was. The new
generation of illiterate techno-
freaks will take at least another
generation to repair, and it is not
they who will be returned to a
semblance of academic normalcy
but perhaps their children.
The best we can do for the
freak is to teach him that it will
be desirable for him to have
children who are not freaks, who
1'TfuitC gfettfiSH c
They're poisoning world opinion instead
are literate, and to instill in him
the courage to inspire his children
toward that end. To more than
this, the freak is, himself, lost.
But cultural separatism lends
itself to no such "simple"
solutions. Inevitably, cultural
separatism is the father of
political separatism, and for
American civilization, that is
WHAT MUST be understood
is that cultural separatism is not
the same as cultural pluralism.
They are, substantially, 0fr
posites. The latter marks this
nation as its predominant
characteristic a characteristic
that lends the U.S. its manifold
strength and that was. by
definition, its manifest destiny
from the beginnings of its
Cultural pluralism was the
handle of this nation as a melting
pot, the crucible in which a
variety of cultures and civiliza-
tions were ultimately fired into
the unique amalgam we call
American. The melting pot was
not a fixture of the ovens of
cultural genocide. Respecting the
individuality of all newcomers,
the melting pot encouraged them
to continue their homage to their
past, if that is what they wished,
while at the same time bringing
the multitudinous elements of
diverse cultures into the unique
harmony of the American brew.
Primarily, and most important
to the process, the single active
American component was respect
no more than that.
IN THE Jewish experience, for
example, it was the various
Jewish congregations, Talmud
Torahs. benevolent societies,
welfare agencies and other such
sectarian organizations that kept
what is understood as being
uniquely Jewish alive. It was the
national respect that permitted
them to function. But it was up
to the Jews, themselves, to
maintain their traditional and
diaspora cultural ties to their
past, whether that past was
Russian or Polish or Rumanian or
Hungarian or German or
Lithuanian, or whatever.
It was not up to the United
States or to any lower level of
government to keep these ties
The other side of the coin, the
melting pot side, was an
American enterprise in the form
of granting citizenship, sup-
porting night schools and other
classes of citizenship, the English
language, American history and
customs for the newcomers to
help in the integration process.
This is all well-documented in
I^eo Rosten and Sholem Asch and
Abe Cahan, among others,
novelists whose works depict the
agonizing rise of immigrants to
the proud status of being an
WHAT WE have today, and
particularly here in South
Florida, is just the opposite.
Today, the various levels of
government actively participate
in helping immigrant cultures,
notably the Cuban, stay out of
the melting pot. Today, the
various levels of government
contribute funds and establish
laws advocating cultural aeP"
In dealing with the Black com-
munity now riding its surfboard
on the Hispanic wave, they play
by the same rules. The melting
pot fire has been banked. It is as

cultural genocide if we point out

TEL AVIV (JTA) For-
eign Minister Moshe Dayan
admitted prior to his departure
for the U.S. that Israel sells arms
to Ethiopia to be used in its war
against Somalia. In an interview
with Israel Radio from Zurich,
Dayan said he saw no reason to
conceal the fact.
The Foreign Minister pointed
out that Israel has a strong
interest in maintaining friendly
relations with Ethiopia, a
country located along the Red
Sea, the waterway by which
tankers come to Israel. Dayan
said Israel did not send any
troops or aircraft to Ethiopia.
THIS WAS the first time an
Israeli official has publicly ad-
mitted that Israel has supplied
military aid to Ethiopia although
it has been an open secret for 20
years. Israeli aid started during
the regime of Emperor Haile
During that time, there was a
military mission in Ethiopia and
Ethiopian officers frequently
came to Irael for various types of
training. After the Yom Kippur
War, Somalia, like most African
countries, broke relations with
Israel's present aid to Ethiopia
began about a year ago when it
was asked to give such aid by the
government which had over-
thrown the Emperor in 1974.
ISRAEL agreed to do so and
continues the aid despite the fact
that Ethiopia now also receives
aid from the Soviet Union and
Cuba. It was reliably learned that
Israeli aid includes ammunition,
uniforms, first aid equipment,
tents and other items of this
However, Defense Ministry
sources were somewhat taken
aback by Dayan's acknowledge-
ment of the fact. The Foreign
Minister made his statement
after the Israeli involvement had
received heavy publicity in the
world Dress. ___

What is Shiloh for Real?
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Shiloh is not a nascent settle-
ment, and therefore the Settle-
ment Department of the World
Zionist Organization will not
offer it the usual help given to
settlements. This was made clear
by a department spokesman to a
TV interviewer here.
FOREIGN MINISTER Dayan
has said he "admired" the
Shiloans' frank assertions that
they wished to turn the place into
a Jewish settlement. But it was
for the government, not for them,
to determine where and when
settlements would be sited.
Foreign Minister Dayan has
said he "admired" the Shiloans'
frank assertions that they wished
to turn the place into a Jewish
settlement. But it was for the
. government, not for them, to
DOrOthV RailtbOrd determine where and when settle-
* ments would be sited.
TO ReCeiVe Award DAYAN spoke to newsmen
before leaving for Switzerland en
route to the U.S.
The settlement issue, exacer-
bated by the Shiloh episode, was
expected to take up a good deal of
the Foreign Minister's time in the
U.S. The Cabinet despite
James Reston's prediction in a
New York Times article did
not issue a statement clarifying
the settlement matter, nor was
there any formal reference to it at
all in the official bulletin.
But Cabinet Secretary Arye
Naor did reiterate to newsmen
the government's position that
the Shiloans were "archaeol-
ogists," having received the
requisite permits from the
military and civilian authorities
to conduce a dig at the ancient
onetime site of the Israelite
SO LONG as they did nothing
in contravention of those per-
mits, Naor said, no action would
be taken against them. What
they said to newsmen or others
was of no legal import; what
mattered was what they did.
Thus if they set up a bank at
the spot, this would plainly be an
infringement, Naor explained,
The Palm Beach Chapter of the
American Jewish Committee has
selected Dorothy Rautbord to
receive its coveted Sylvan Cole

beginning with a reception at

Mrs. Rautbord has been a

thropic and human relations life

because one does not need a bank
in order to excavate antiquities.
A branch of the Kupat Holim-
Medical Organization was
another matter, because one did
need medical care. Yigael Yadin
had also had medical care on
hand when he excavated Masada,
HE DID NOT say whether a
kindergarten for the several
infant "archaeologists" at Shiloh
would be an infringement.
The Shiloans themselves con-
tinued to tell interviewers that
they saw themselves as the
nucleus of a new settlement
rather than as archaeologists.
Reporters, moreover, saw no
evidence of any preparations for
an archaeological dig at the site.
There was no information as to
whether the permits issued
stipulated any time limit for the
completion of the "dig."
A FEELING of intense dis-
comfort over Shiloh continues to
pervade all but the most extreme
nationalist circles in Israeli
political life. The charges of
duplicity, lack of good faith, and
double-dealing that have been
leveled by commentators in the
U.S. have echoed with resonance
here, as have the accusations that

weakness in its dealings with

An Open Letter to President Sadat
By MAURICE BLAU
Dear Mr. President:
Thank you very much for your
open letter to American Jews. It
gives me an opportunity to ex-
press my thoughts in plain Eng-
lish, to give you the reaction of
the average American Jew to the
recent events in the Middle East.
I only wish that Messrs. Begin
and Dayan would exhibit the
same intuitive flair for public re-
lations which you so expertly de-
SIR, I cannot conceive that
you really expected that your
brave, bold and highly imagina-
tive initiative in addressing the
Israel Knesset that this ges-
ture, undoubtedly most signifi-
cant, but nevertheless a gesture
- would cause the Israeli gov-
ernment to cede forthwith all the
occupied territories including
Kast Jerusalem and agree to self-
determination of the Palestini-
After all, the substance of a
gesture can be renounced the
next day, if not by yourself, then
hv your successor, whereas ceded
territories cannot be retrieved ex-
cept by war.
You place ultimative precondi-
tions that Israel must accept
right away or else you would not
play. After all. with all due re-
spect. I must say. sir. that you
are not in the position of a victo-
rious general dictating uncondi-
lional surrender terms to a de-
YOU HAVE fought four major
wars against Israel in the.last 30
years. There are no differences of
opinion as to the outcome of the
War of (Israel) Independence, nor
the Sinai Campaign, nor, I be-
lieve, the Six-Day War.
You feel that you were success-
ful in the Yom Kippur War. but
many people would dispute that.
Since when in the history of war-
fare has a supposedly victorious
army pleaded with a defeated foe
to be permitted access to food,
water and medical supplies?
You ask the Jewish community
in the U.S. four questions. I^etus
assume that the answer to all of
ihem is, as you expect, a re-
sounding no, with one proviso
for as long as you remain in pow-
er. Mr. Begin, with the future of
his nation at stake, cannot over-
look the possibility no matter
how remote of a governmental
upset in Egypt. After all. you had
food riots last year, or, for that
matter, as you yourself pointed
out, assassination either by the
rejectionists or by the Madman
Lunatic in Libya; these are, I be-
lieve, your own words.
QUESTION NO. 3 in your
open letter concerns Palestinian
self-determination. Suppose Mr.
Arafat forms an independent
state and proceeds with Syria,
Libya, Iraq, etc. to establish a bi-
national state in what is now Is-
Can you imagine, sir, what
would happen to the Jews there,
recent immigrants and old resi-
dents alike? Mr. Arafat gave us a
good example. Look at Lebanon.
The slaughter which would follow
would pale Hitler's Holocaust to
shame. Is not one Holocaust in a
But, better still, suppose Mr.
Arafat or one even more radical
than he, asks his friend Mr.
Brezhnev to lend him a division
of the Russian army to protect
him against Israel "aggression."
Never mind Israel, how would
you like it, and the Saudi Royalty
and King Hussein?
THE KING may have had lit-
tle difficulty in expelling the Pa-
lestinians from Jordan: he would
not find it so easy to send Rus-
These observations, sir, are not
a figment of a sick imagination.
These are possibilities which may
become realities tomorrow. But
Mr. Begin cannot overlook these
potential hazards no matter how
far-fetched. Would you, if your
positions were reversed?
Another thing. The Arabs had

ture, bankers, businessmen.
Let the evacuated sections of
the West Bank and Gaza become
part of Jordan. I am sure you will
find Mr. Begin forthcoming. He
too, along with all Israelis and
Jews throughout the world,
needs, wants and craves peace as
much as you and the other Egyp-

warm welcome, instant evacua-

after. Unfortunately, it is not as

know. There is still much to talk
about and discuss.

The Egyptian leader said that
he would not try to create divi-

knew he could not succeed. "I am
not that foolish," the JTA was

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
ederation Statement OnMd East Peace Efforts
\uthored by George Golden,
following is Jewish Federa-
, of Palm Beach County's offi-
I statement at this time on the
idle East peace efforts.
It is past time for appraisal of
lat President Anwar El Sadat
done for peace in the Middle
st since Nov. 20,1977, when he
pressed the Knesset in Jerusa-
Much has been written and
.. more said. He was nominat-
[for the Nobel Peace Prize, vot-
"Man of the Year" and ac-
limed by opinion makers for his
(old. brave" and "daring" ac-
ln by going to and recogniz-
the fact that a country called
bold, brave and daring as that
ep was. peace between Egypt
|d Israel does not depend on
gypts accepting as a fact some-
Sng which has been a fact for
ost 30 years, namely the exis-
ce of Israel.
MAINLAND China has been
in existence for many years. It
did not need former President
Nixon, or any other world leader
or government, to tell it that it
was "a nation in being." The re-
cognition of Communist China's
existence by our government,
and the recognition of Israel's ex-
istence by Egypt, was done for
America's and Egypt's and all
the world's best interests not
alone for China and for Israel.
If President Sadat or his gen-
erals thought that they, or a
combination of Arab states,
could defeat Israel in battle and
thus eliminate it, would they
have chosen the road to peaceful
But President Sadat did make
an overture for peace and recog-
nition of Israel, and it was a very
important first step. When Golda
Meir was prime minister of Is-
rael, she repeatedly said that she
would go anywhere to meet any
Arab leader in order to discuss
peace. In 1975 the then prime
minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin,
said in addressing a joint session
of the American Congress: "I will
go anywhere to meet the Arab
leaders to talk peace." So the idea
of crossing a border to go "into
the enemy's camp" to talk peace
is not a novel one, nor did it origi-
nate with President Sadat.
WHAT IS novel and what the
Egyptian leader should be com-
mended for is. that unlike his
Arab neighbors, he is apparently
ready to negotiate for a peace
treaty. His going to Jerusalem is
"recognizing" a country that has
