the other. The international

agreement were intensified fol-
lowing Israel's naval attack. In
fact, according to reports from
Washington, it was this very
operation that led President
Carter to use the hot line to
Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev to
prepare the Security Council
resolution calling for a ceasefire.
The battles in the city in-
tensified as each party was trying
to gain as much as possible
before an outside development
would limit them. Thus, there
was fierce fighting between the
Christian militias and the Syrian
army (the so-called inter Arab
deterrent force) on the
Quarantina bridges in the nor-
thern part of the city.
The bridges are the only outlet
of the Christians to the Port of
Junia some 13 miles north of
Beirut. Had the Syrians suc-
ceeded to control it, they would
have actually encircled the
Christians, cut them off from any
outside help.
interested in the ceasefire exactly
for this reason. Furthermore, the
hundreds of wounded inside the
city were reportedly deprived of
minimum medical care, with the
Red Cross unable to enter the
Christian quarters under the
heavy Syrian shelling. Essential
supplies such as food, water and
electricity were running low.

able to afford the ceasefire

louncer. His talent does serve
E well though as a prominent
rttomey with the firm of Lesser,
Lser and Daniels in West Palm
Beach and most recently as the
newly appointed chairman oi the
Community Relations Council of
^ Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
Raised in Dayton, Ohio, and a
graduate of Ohio State Univer-
sity and the University of
Michigan School of Law. Daniels
moved to West Palm Beach from
Tallahassee in April 1966 and
joined the firm of Levy and Levy.
From there he worked with the
Citv Attorney's office, the Public
Defender's office and in 1969 he
established his own practice. In
1971 he associated with the firm
of Lesser and Lesser, where he is
newcomer to the Jewish
Federation. As president of the
Palm Beach Lodge of B'nai
B'rith he attained a seat on the
board of directors in 1968 and in
1972 became an elected member
of the board. His involvement in
community relations began with
his association with ADL as a
community liaison in 1968.
"Federation CRC was formed
by bringing together the people
that were active in CRC type
work before we had organized
under the auspices of
Federation" states Bruce. "In
1971 we had some problems of
anti-Semitism in the community.
At that point a group of us joined
together with the assistance of
ADL and Federation. There was
i training course given by Dr.
Robert Also from on the investi-
gation and follow-up of anti-
Semitic problems. From that
group we then began to organize
into what became the CRC.
Henry Grossman, past chairman
of the CRC, was the real inspira-
tional force in getting people to
work on the committee... he got
things going."
Daniels worked initially with
the Domestic Task Force of the
Community Relations Council as
! its first chairman. "We have
[developed into a membership
that puts in a good working effort
and we've drawn on some of
the best experience from other
communities across the coun-
try,'' he stated. "From an initial
response to the problems of a
local anti-Semitic issue we've
branched out to where we have
three active task forces one
on domestic concerns, one on
Israel and one on Soviet Jewry.
"WE HAVE many plans for

Dayan expressed the hope Monday
Israel and Egypt for a peace treaty which open in Washington
Thursday will be successful. He said that Israel desires that the peace
process will eventually include Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
IN A MAJOR foreign policy address to the 33rd session of the
general assembly, Dayan declared that Jerusalem "is the one and only
eternal capital of Israel," and said that the Israeli settlements in
Judaea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip "are there as of right."
"WE HAVE NOT, and we shall never have any other capital city,
whether or not others recognize it as such," Dayan said. Noting that
Jerusalem is a holy place for Judaism, Christianity and Islam, he said
that the connection of that city for the Jewish people "is not just
religious, but derives from the totality of Jewish national interest.
Jerusalem is the heart and soul of the Jewish people."
Political Forum Slated
The Domestic Relations Task Force of the Community
Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County has scheduled a political forum where members of the
Jewish community can meet candidates who are running for
local, state and national office.
The program will be held on Thursday, Oct. 26 at Temple
Israel, West Palm Beach, at 4 p.m. Elsie Leviton, chairman of
the program, announced that each candidate will be questioned
on positions on issues which are of specific interest to the Jewish
community. The program is being offered as a community
service, and all members of our community are welcome. For
additional information, call the Community Relations office.

Decision on Appeal
It is good that the Justice Department has
decided to appeal a Federal Court decision per-
mitting Miami Beachite Feodor Fedorenko to keep
his American citizenship.
The trial last July in Fort Lauderdale and the
Federal Judge's decision have evoked a storm of
criticism on the basis that we simply are not taking
seriously enough the former Nazis in our midst who
are living out their lives in peace and serenity after
denying Concentration Camp Jews the right to a
similarly happy destiny. Fedorenko is alleged to have
been one such Nazi tool.
There are simply too many questions that have
been raised by the decision, and the American Jewish
Congress is to be congratulated for having made the
"urgent request" to the Justice Department that has
finally gotten the appeal ball rolling.
Danger Signs Ahead
Let there be no mistake. While our hopes for
peace in the Middle East remain unflagging, we see
danger signs everywhere. What is worse, with in-
creasing intensity.
It grows more and more difficult to take the
position that the Israel-Egypt peace treaty is
unilateral that it will be signed regardless of the
stand Israel takes on the West Bank and on the
Golan Heights.
To emphasize the point, President Sadat
presided at a military show of power last weekend.
His message was simple: Egypt did not negotiate
with Israel out of weakness but out of strength. It is
not true, he wants the world to understand, including
ourselves who have voiced this opinion, that Sadat
had no alternative but to make peace with Israel or
fail to survive.
On the contrary, Sadat at Camp David sought
two goals: (1) To disengage Israel from the Sinai
without firing a single shot and so be able, as her
military leaders have already boasted, to deploy
soldiers on the Israel border in a matter of seven
hours; (2) to consolidate his position as spokesman of
the Arab world, moderate and terrorist.
Misconceptions are Clarified
The first of these two goals is a suspicion the
leaders of Israel have themselves long feared, and
this is why they acceded to the pressure to withdraw,
as Prime Minister Begin put it, "with heavy heart."
What it means is that, in the event of another
round with the Arabs, Israel will have to do a second
time the same thing she did in 1967 and at a far
higher price in manpower and materiel.
More to the point, the Egyptians are making it
clear, as indeed Egypt's Ambassador to the United
States Ashraf Ghorbal did this week, that a suc-
cessful conclusion to a peace treaty with Israel neces-

No Jews for Highest Office Now
BACK LAST spring, I had a
long talk with Bob Shevin about
his hopes for the governorship.
He said a lot of things to describe
the programs he envisioned for
I asked him whether he
thought he had begun his race
too soon, and wasn't be afraid of
"peaking" which, among other
politically unwise things, is pre-
cisely what he finally did.
Of course, he said no, and of
course I knew he would say no. It
was just a way of getting to an
even more sensitive question:
What about his being Jewish?
YOU CAN imagine the answer.
It was lengthy and mellifluous,
all Stars and Stripes and apple
pie, with a piece of American
cheese thrown into the hopper for
good measure.
Even in the final days of the
runoff, both he and winner Bob
Graham, faoe-to-face and on sep-
arate platforms, denied that
Shevin's being Jewish was an
Such bull.
When Shevin in the TV
debates was forced by a question
addressed to the issue to say that
he was "of the Jewish faith," you
could sense the hard swallow, the
stiff response, the stinging eyes,
the ringing in the ears, the con-
trolled rage he must have felt at
having to deal with so irrelevant
and emotional an issue and
all the time to pretend there was
no hard swallow, no stiff res-
ponse, no stinging eyes, no ring-
ing in the ears.
AND TO make the prerequisite
statement by rote, which Graham
always endorsed, that the good
people of Florida were wiser,
more sensible, more decent than
to let Shevin's being "of the
Jewish faith" enter their minds
as a liability against him.
Are they wiser? It's easy to say
so if it doesn't really strike you
the way the phrase, "of the
Jewish faith," strikes you if
you're not Jewish something
like being doomed by a lethal
The fact is there are sections of
this fair state that would vote for

CONSIDER THE case of John
Montgomery, associate pastor of
Arlington Baptist Church in
Jacksonville. Montgomery is the
founder of Christian Market
Place, Inc., a forum intended to
bring Christian businessmen to-
gether because, as he frankly
puts it, "I'd rather do business
with a fellow-Christian, but my
problem is I don't know who they
(sic) are."
So Montgomery sat down to
find out who these Christian
businessmen are with whom he'd
rather do business because "I
think there is scriptural grounds
(sic) for Christians doing busi-
ness with other Christians."
His solution? A gathering of
Christian businessmen early in
September in the Exhibition Hall
of Jacksonville's Civic Auditor-
ium. All Christian businessmen
had to do to enjoy the pleasure of
doing business with others of
their faith was to ante up a $275
rental fee which would also in-
clude television, radio and news-
paper advertising for a three-day
business festival.
PRINCIPALLY, it would ren-
der the privilege of a listing in the
Christian Market Place Guide-
Now lest Jews or other impure
breeds tried to horn in on the
glorious opportunity of partici-
pating in Montgomery's enter-
prise, a potential exhibitor was
requested to sign a statement
that he "has accepted Jesus
Christ as savior" and "is a born-
again Christian."
Disputes as to what these
theological terms mean, ex-
plained Montgomery, would be
resolved on a "scriptural basis."
Area coordinator for the Jack-
sonville event was one John
Bolton, whose sales personnel
canvassed prospects based on the
Christian Yellow Pages -
another enterprise that demon-
strates the Stars and Stripes and
apple pie principle that, say,
voters wouldn't think of making
political choices based on the reli-
gion of a candidate.
Place is nothing like Christian
Yellow Pages, explained Mont-
gomery, who is fully aware of the
flap that that operation has

i appreciate this opportunity
m be with you today. The topic of
Lussion could not be more
annropriate, obviously, in light of
be meetings now under way in
Blair House. As we meet today I
think we are conscious that this
is also an anniversary. Five years
uo today Israel was once again
fighting for her life against a
sneak attack launched on Yom
Kippur. The meetings in
Washington are held against the
backdrop of that particular act of
treachery. Each of us fervently
hopes for their success and
thanks the President for his role
in bringing them about.
But before we consider where
we are eleven months after
Anwar Sadat went to Jerusalem.
I think it might be useful to look
back and see where we were then.
As you know, the Carter
Administration came to office
opposing step-by-step diplomacy
in the Middle East and declaring
its intention to seek a com-
prehensive settlement. They
intended to try settling the Sinai
issue, the West Bank, the Golon,
Gaza, compensation and the rest,
all in one major effort. In fairness
to the President, he made this
intention clear during the
campaign, but few people paid
much attention to it, or to what
the implications of this might be
for Israel.
The early days of the Adminis-
tration were paralleled by a diffi-
cult time in Israel's politics with
the unfortunate situation in
which Prime Minister Rabin
found himself, with Shimon Peres
taking over, with elections being
held, and throughout all this with
the U.S. Government putting
constant pressure on Israel to
pursue a comprehensive settle-
It was fully anticipated here
that the Labor Party would win
the election. As it happened, they
did not. Both the U.S. State De-
partment and the National Se-
curity Council, in a rare display
of unity, considered the election
of Mr. Begin a disaster, and there
were predictions wishful
thinking, really that he would
not be able to form a government.
There was much encouraging of
the American Jewish community
to express its displeasure with
the new Prime Minister, and that
was not whollv unsuccessful, un-
fortunately. So relations between
Israel's new government and our
new government began on that
ungracious and undiplomatic
note, and in the summer of 1977
these relations went rapidly from
bad to worse.
The United States insisted
that Israel go to Geneva. The
Begin government said they
would be happy to do that, but
the Arab states said Israel must
accept pre-conditions. The White
House tried to force these pre-
conditions on Israel, and Israel
rightly refused. Therefore, Prime
Minister Begin was accused of
being intransigent, unyielding
and an impediment to peace. No
accusations were leveled against
Israel's adversaries.
Finally, as it became clear
what was happening, Israel's
supporters in this country
became highly suspect of U.S.
Middle East policies.
Then, in October 1977, the Ad-
ministration made a drastic mis-
calculation. In an effort to
frighten Israel, they invited the
Soviet Union back into the
picture. There is no evidence that
this frightened Israel, but it
certainly threw Anwar Sadat into
a tailspin after all the trouble and
effort he had had getting
Russia's fingers off Egypt's
throat. At that point, the United
States was cut out of the picture.
Prime Minister Begin had been
saying that he would go to Cairo
or he would be happy to have
President Sadat come to Jeru-
salem, and finally Sadat sent
word through Rumania that he
would come if invited. And so we
had the historic meeting in Jeru-
In December, Prime Minister
Begin went to meet with Presi-
dent Sadat in Ismailia, and ar-
rangements were made for bi-
lateral discussions. This was a
terrific embarrassment for the
United States. For the first time
since the founding of the State of
Israel, we found ourselves on the
outside looking in. And then a
very curious sequence of events
On January 1, one of Egyp.'s
semi-official news organs printed
an interview which Sadat gave
after his meeting with Begin. He
praised the Israeli Prime
Minister very warmly. He called
him a man who "wants peace, not
war ... a man with whom un-
derstanding can be reached." Of
the Jerusalem and Ismailia
meetings he said, "It is not true
that we did not agree on
anything, or that I did not obtain
any specific thing."
In other words, as of January
1, the bi-lateral peace process was
proceeding on track. Yet, on
January 5, the Egyptian media
began carrying stories saying the
negotiations could not proceed;
that Begin was intransigent, and
then went on to say some very

unkind and unwarranted things been willing
about the Prime Minister. Begin
was astonished. In this period of
time, there had been no commun-
ication between Egypt and Israel
which would have explained such
a radical reversal in the peace
One unusual event did occur in
the period between January 1 and
January 5, however. In that
period, President Carter was on a
State visit to Saudi Arabia. On
January 4, he made an un-
scheduled visit to Egypt, where
he met with President Sadat at
Aswan. The next day Sadat de-
railed the peace talks, and shortly
began to talk about the need for
President Carter to salvage the
situation. The U.S. was back in
the picture. Neither President
Sadat nor President Carter have
ever revealed what transpired at
that meeting, and it is probable
that they never will. In light of all
circumstances, however, I find it
difficult to believe that what they
discussed was wholly uncon-
nected with Sadat's derailing of
the peace process eleven months
Since that time, Israel has had
to go into Lebanon to secure her
borders, the situation in Lebanon
has reverted to the endless
bloodbath that it was before and,
not least, the U.S. has agreed to
sell the most advanced air
weaponry in its arsenal to Saudi
Arabia, and a large number of
very sophisticated planes to
This was the background to
the Camp David talks. Israel had
to resume talks
anytime, anywhere. Sadat
stalled, talked about
preparations for a new war, and
insisted that only Jimmy Carter
could save the situation. With
the stage carefully set, the
President called for a summit
conference. And now we can look
at the results of that summit.
Several things become clear
quickly. One, the agreement is
not, as it could not be, the com-
prehensive settlement which the
President said two years ago
would have to be achieved. The
President was wise to abandon
this approach. This was the
Brzezinski concept, and it went
out the window. Instead, we have
two separate documents: one, a
Framework for a Peace Treaty
between Egypt and Israel and,
two, a Framework for Peace in
the Middle East.
The Framework for a Peace
Treaty between Egypt and Israel
is the more significant of the two.
It would restore Sinai to Egypt.
That is as it should be. In my dis-
cussions with my Israeli friends,
they have never asserted Israeli
sovereignty over the Sinai, but
they have insisted they could
never withdraw from the area.
They had one-fifth of their air-
force there. The settlements in
the Rafah Salient sat astride the
traditional Egyptian invasion
route into Israel, and had to be
maintained. Control of the Rafah
Salient formed a buffer between
Egypt and the Gaza, and pre-
vented Egypt from doing
mischief through the Palestinians
in Gaza. And my response wa
that those calculations were
wholly pinned to a presumption
of future hostility when the
search for progress required a
presumption of good faith and
ultimate peace. I believed Israel
should withdraw from the Sinai,
and I said so in my remarks at
the AIPAC annual dinner last
May 8. although it was not a
popular viewpoint.
So now this has been agreed to
and the Knesset has voted in
favor of it. The United States will
construct two new airfields inside
Israel. This is certainly ap-
propriate in view of the new
situation created by F-16's in
Saudi Arabia, or whereyerjhev.

may turn up in the future.
The question of the Sinai
settlements is an interesting one.
It provides a bit of space for
dreaming. Suppose the settlers
agreed to accept Egyptian
sovereignty, Egyptian law,
Egyptian administration, and
Egypt could see the settlers not
as a potential fifth column so
far from the Nile, they would
scarcely fit that role then the
settlements might be another
bridgehead to peace: hostages to
fortune between two great
peoples whose history has not
always been violent.
What is not a dream is this:
Egypt needs peace. Econo-
mically, politically, socially, she
needs it. All that her Arab neigh.
bora might do to make that peace
a luxury, Israel can help to offset.
Technical assistance, agricultural
know-how, trade, development of
energy sources all these can be
of mutual benefit to Israel and
Egypt. They have a chance to set
an example in the Middle East.
I believe it is this possibility,
the effect that such an example
might have on others in the
Middle East, that horrifies those
who still harbor hopes of seeing
Israel destroyed someday. In the
short and mid-term, there can be
no war against Israel if Egypt

The exception to the rule is in the
area of education. There the
Rabbis observed; Kinnat Sofrim
Tarbe Hochma envy (or competi-
tion) of the scribes and scholars
enhances wisdom. In other words
competition for excellence in
education is to be permitted and
encourage, by providing re-
sources and guidance, each insti-
tution to do the best that it can
for its students. It should en-
courage each learner to develop a
uniquely personal relationship
with his teachers and Rabbi.
When each ship enters a habor,
it, ever imperceptively, raises the
level in that harbor. As each
school grows and improves it can
only serve to raise the level of all
schools. As we improve the
education of one child, we im-
prove that of all. As we improve
the Jewish education of all of our
children, we improve the quality
of Jewish life of all of us.

tough fighting against the
THE Christian President Elias
Sarkis, elected two years ago, is
actually a Syrian protege, and as
such he came over the weekend to
Damascus to discuss things with
the Syrian boss, rather than
present before him the case of an
independent government.
Syria soon legitimized its
presence in Lebanon after it won
the approval of the Arab League
to be called the deterrent force in
Lebanon. For the sake of for-
malities, the close to 40,000-
strong Syrian army was
strengthened by several Arab
units from other countries such
as Sudan and Saudia.
As soon as the Syrians
established their hold over
Lebanon, they demanded that all
parties the Palestinians, the
local Moslems and the Christians
give up their arms. The
Christians knew that this meant
the end of Lebanon as an in-
dependent state, and even worse
their possible end as an in-
fluential community in Lebanon.
They gradually resorted to
fighting the Syrians, a
fighting which reached its climax
last week.
FOR A LONG time Syrian
President Assad did not mind
stepping up the fighting. In fact,
the Camp David agreements
probably gave him the feeling
that his hands were freer than in
the past, with both Israel and the
U.S. too interested to complete
quietly the delicate process of the
peace negotiations.
But the developments late last
week forced Assad to do some
rethinking. He cut short his trip
to the USSR and summoned to
him in Damascus President
Sarkis. It was at the end of that
meeting that the Syrians issued
the announcement of the

But at some point, our nation's
psychological health and welfare
must be considered away from
the arena (or as some would pre-
fer circus) of the network pro-
gram planners. In the Ginsburg
vs. New York case, as well as in
certain F.C.C. rulings, our
society has affirmed its con-
stitutional right to protect the
atmosphere in which our children
will grow. This has been accom-
plished in the area of porno-
graphy directed toward children.
In the light of increasing
scientific inquiry into the effect of
violence upon children, have we
neared the point where we can
say "enough?"

Israel is a proof of the recognition

Ghorbal continued: "I have
full confidence that the principles
that have been incorporated in
the framework applicable to Sinai
m terms of full withdrawal, in-
cluding the Israeli settlements,
mutual security and otherwise,
will also apply to the Golan and
will be incorporated in due time
in the peace treaty between Syria
and Israel."
Outlining the measures in the
two frameworks adopted at
Camp David that include "full
autonomy" for the inhabitants of
the West Bank and Gaza,
Ghorbal noted:
"ABOVE ALL, let us ask our-
selves the question, when did the
full autonomy anywhere in the
world not lead to the self-deter-
mination and finally to indepen-
dence? What we have done in
Camp David is to change the
course of events and to create a
momentum that will ultimately
take the Palestinians to their goal
of self-determination. A new
horizon has already started to
dawn on the Palestinian nation.
Let us rise with it and help a col-
lective responsibility to move
things and not freeze them."
Saying that negotiations over
the West Bank "will also resolve
the question of minor rectifica-
tions included in the 1967 lines,"
Ghorbal added that "these will be
governed by two factors
foremost the legitimate rights of
the Palestine people and their
just requirements as well as the
nature of security arrange-
He said that "border adjust-
ments will be no more than minor
rectifications" and urged: "Solve
and do not create iridentism is, I
believe, the new motto. It must
be. It will be."

program will e finalized by a
committee comprised of Rabbi
Merle Singer, Marilyn Snyder,
Geri Glassman and Lynn Persoff.
Gortz announced the appoint-
ments of Robert Gesoff to lead
the Domestic Concerns Task

County CRC Head
Bruce Daniels, chairman of the
Community Relations Council for
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, announced the
appointment of Albert Gortz, a
local attorney, as chairman for
the South County CRC.
"Our Community Relations
Council will be composed of three
Task Forces the Israel Mid-
East Task Force, International -
Soviet Jewry Task Force, and
Domestic Affairs Task Force,"
said Gortz. "The existence of the
Community Relations Council in
South County will enable all of
the constituent organizations to
better coordinate their programs
with one another and better com-
municate in these three vital
areas. We hope that by using the
process of the CRC that all
Jewish organizations in South
County will be strengthened."

In Montgomery's view, there is
an immortal difference, which is
that "the Market Place is open to

enough to be a Jew, and want to
do business with our enterprise,
why not? Business is business.

'God Grant Us a Good Year9
By Dr. Jerome Kestenbaum.
Rabbi Temple Emanu-El,
Palm Beach
The Jewish High Holy Days
are a season of hope and faith.
They stir us to renewed efforts
for the better life. Can we move
forward a little closer to our own
highest standards? The New
Year answers that we can make a
new beginning, if we but will it.
Certainly we wont correct all our
faults regardless of how hard we
try. We shall make beautiful
resolutions on Rosh Hashana
only to find them broken even
before the advent of Yom Kippur.
the Day of Atonement. 10 days
later. But the effort is still worth-
while despite our backsliding. We
can still rise higher in the scale of
life if we set our minds and our
hearts in that direction.
Psalm 118 contains this
beautiful verse: "Open to me the
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
LEKH LEKHA From Shem. Noah's eldest son. descended
1 erah, who was the father of Abram, Terah dwelt in the city of
After Abram's father Terah died, the Lord said to Abram:
"Leave your father's house and go into a new land which I will
show you. For I shall start a new nation with you."
So Abram and his wife Sarai left for Canaan. He took his
nephew Lot, too.
At Shechem the Lord appeared to Abram again. He told
Abram: "Unto your children will I give this land!" And Abram
said: "I have no children!" Whereupon God replied: "Look up
to the sky and count the stars if you can. So many shall be the
number of your children and children's children. To them I shall
give this land!"
When Abram was ninety-nine, God appeared once more to
him and said: "Henceforth let your wife Sarai be called Sarah,
for she shall be a princess by your side. And your name will be
Abraham (father of many). I will bless you both and give you a
son. whose name will be Isaac. I will establish My covenant with
Isaac and I will make you the father of a great people." (Genesis

gates of righteousness." The
truly righteous see themselves
always standing merely at the
gates. No matter what they have
achieved they look upon them-
selves as mere beginners. The
more they advance on spiritual
paths the more they hear the call
to higher goals. "A man's reach
must exceed his grasp, or what's

WHEN DOES Rosh Hashana,
the Jewish New Year 5739,
begin? According to the Hebrew
calendar the answer is Oct. 1 at
sundown. But that is only a
partial answer. For in a truer
sense, it isn't the calendar that
starts the year, but our own
initiative and determination.
The Jewish traditional
greeting for the New Year is
L'Shonah Tovah, which means a
good year. The intimation is clear
without goodness there is no
happiness. "Oh God grant us a
good year. A happy year we shall
find on our own."
On behalf of Temple Emanu-El

myself, I would like to take this

oth'e Middle East is a document
B which Israel agrees to con-
ditions with no reciprocal
reement from her adversaries,
^is is a strange procedure,
ndeed, and represents a great
risk on Prime Minister Begin's
part. It gives the signatories to
the agreement, Egypt and the
U.S., something to hold over
Israel's head.
Already, Egypt is saying that
efforts to solve the West Bank
ud Palestinian problems will be
linked to the implementation of
the peace plan with Egypt. This
nay be a diplomatic necessity
stemming from internal Arab
politics, and it may prove to be
in empty gesture on Egypt's
part. 1 hope it is. If not, we must
be prepared for the possibility of
renewed U.S. pressure on Israel.
Already there is a disagree-
ment on issues with President
Carter saying Israel is to build no
new settlements on the West
Bank for five years, and Prime
Minister Begin saying that only a
three month moratorium was
agreed to. In short, the seeds of
future difficulty between the
United i States and Israel have
been sown right alongside the
roots of our recent difficulties.
And so if we are asked where is
the Middle East eleven months
after Jerusalem, I happily say
that peace with Egypt is a strong
possibility. However, I would be
happier still if President Sadat
were not, as I reason he is, misled
to believe that he can get more
from Israel through U.S. inter-
vention than he would have
gotten on his own.
In the aftermath of Camp
David, the mood is one of
euphoria, and it is considered bad
form to look too closely at what
has transpired. It is as though if
we ask the hard questions, the
new prospect of peace will
disappear. But I say that if the
prospect of peace is so fragile
that it cannot be examined
closely, then perhaps it isn't a
very good prospect at all.
The West Bank and the
Palestinian problems are no
closer to resolution than they
ever were. What has changed
somewhat is that public opinion
is now educated to believe that a
universal settlement is at hand,
and if events do not bring a
universal settlement, I believe
that public opinion will turn
against Israel. I know that is not
a particularly happy thought, but
I believe it is one which ought to
be carefully considered.
As long as we permit ourselves
to be deluded into believing that
the real issue is a homeland for
the Palestinians, we will continue

The United States "hai endorsed
the view that the West Bank is
occupied territory to which Israel
has no proper claim. This is a
position which defies law and
history, and plays into the hands
of all parties having a vested
interest in turmoil in the Middle
Jordan insists that the West
Bank belongs to her. The claim is
based on the fact that she oc-
cupied the land in 1948 in the
effort to destroy Israel. So long
as Jordan cannot retrieve the
land militarily or diplomatically,
King Hussein insists that he is
bound by the agreements of the
Rabat Conference of 1974 which
makes the PLO responsible for
recovering the West Bank. But,
says the King, if Israel were
willing to get out of the West
Bank, he would feel obligated to
take it over. Where does this
leave the Palestinians? It leaves
them right where they were for
the nineteen years during which
Jordan controlled the West
Bank. There were riots weekly;
killings and turmoil were the way
of life. And there was no
Palestinian state and no attempt
to establish one.
I don't suggest this as a
condemnation of Jordan. I
suggest it as part of the need to
look at the hard realities straight
on. No one familiar with relation-
ships in that area believes for a
moment that the first target of a
militant Palestinian state would
be Israel. Israeli strategists
themselves don't believe it. The
first victim would be Jordan.
And with that base, it would be a
question of who might be next.
Maybe Israel. Maybe Saudi
Arabia. But eventually Israel.
You can be sure that King
Hussein is not stalling on coming
into the Camp David frameworks
because of his concern for the
interests of the Palestinians. His
concern is to find a way to
reassert Jordanian control over
the West Bank. And in spite of
the old hostility between Jordan
and Saudi Arabia, the Saudis will
help him to achieve that if they
can. They are forced together for
the short term by the threat of
the socialist Arab states that are
clients of Moscow.
While the confrontation states
are deeply concerned that they
may no longer have the option of
fighting to the last Egyptian, the
so-called moderates the oil
states with which Jordan is allied
don't need Egypt's military
muscle. They have leverage over
the U.S. economy.
They hold the U.S. dollar
hostage. They have the growing

i / Fred K. Shochet, publisher.
And so I say to you, eleven
months after Jerusalem, that
Israel is not out of danger yet,
and the time for dancing is not
yet upon us.
The political concern of Israel's
supporters has helped to shift the
Carter Administration's tactics
in dealing with Israel. But
though the tactics have changed,
it remains to be seen whether the
strategy has altered. The
struggle is far from being over.
The struggle for public opinion in
America isn't over.
Ultimately, it comes to this.
We have looked to the Middle
East and seen it as the cockpit of
conflict between Arab and Jew.
We have proceeded from that
myopic perception to the con-
clusion that peace will come when
this single conflict is resolved. In
doing so we have ignored the fact
that Israel is largely a pawn in
the power struggles of Arab
nations and individual Arab
leaders. Take Israel away and the
bloodshed would go on, as it does
today in Lebanon, as it did in
Jordan before Hussein expelled
the fedayeen, as it did in Yemen
when Nasser fomented strife
between his fellow Arabs, as it
does between Syria and Iraq, as
its does between the PLO and
George Habash's henchmen.
Take away Israel and the op-
portunities for mischief by
Russia would grow even greater,
and" the chances of a confronta-
tion between the super powers
would grow with it.
So our interests lie, as they
always have, with a strong,
secure Israel, in spite of the
economic muscle which has been
uset' against us by the oil states.
I look to a time when we
recognize this once again. It is
not just a moral issue, though it
is certainly that. It is a strategic
issue. It is a geopolitical issue. It
is an issue which challenges us to
choose between short-term ex-
pediency, and wne long-term
obligations which our own
history lays upon us.
I look to a time when Arab
leadership is not afraid to see
demonstrated to their people the
benefits of peace with Israel;
when they are willing to have for
a song the know-how that Israel
can .provide, instead df paying
billions for it elsewhere.
I look to a time when the eons
of those two step-brothers, Isaac
and Ishmail, can come together
in peace, and I pray it will be
soon. In the end, it seems little
enough to ask that people stop
killing each other's children and
seek the benefits of each other s
greatness rather than constantly
incurring the fruits of each
other's savagery.
I do counsel continued vigi-
lence. I do caution against the
view that the task is done. But
we would be less than human if
we did not also cherish an extra
measure of hope in this holiday
season. Israel asks no more today
than she has for thirty years: to
iive in peace. Not just to live
without war, but live in peace. To
live as neighbors and friends. To
pray for this for Israel is to pray
for it for all the peoples of the
Middle East, for as long as there
is war there between anybody,
everybody is threatened. We
want peace for Israel. But we
want it for Lebanon, too. And for
Egypt and Libya, for Jordan and
Syria. We want a place among
their Arab brothers for Arab
refugees, just as Jewish refugees
are taken into Israel.
These are our hopes and our
prayer. In the words of one of the
beautiful songs of the Yom
Kippur War: Kol sh'mavekesh
With those hopes I wish you
and Israel a shana tovah a
sweet year, and peace.
