"The overwhelming response to the Federation-UJA Gala Dinner
Celebration is evidence of the increasing support and commitment for
Jewish needs in Israel and here in our own community," stated Myron
J. Nickman, 1981 General Campaign Chairman. The Dinner will be
held on Tuesday evening, Jan. 27, 7:15 p.m. at the Breakers, Palm
"This important event promises to be the highlight of the 1981 cam-
paign season," stated Nickman. "We are honored to have such a dis-
tinguished guest speaker as Elie Wiesel. He will add a dimension to
this great event unparalleled in the history of this community.
Wiesel's recent statement on the bombings in Paris and the growing
anti-Semitism around the world makes us realize that we can no longer
afford to be "Jews of Silence." The time has come for us to stand
together as a strong Jewish community, thereby assuring the survival
of our people."

four chapters in the 30-page
peace plan for the Middle East
incorporated in the EEC Heads
of State Venice Declaration of
last June.
THE CONTENTS of the docu-
ments are still secret. Panorama
claimed that the Jerusalem
chapter contains three suggested
solutions for Jerusalem. They
are, according to the magazine,
"a return to the pre-1967
situation," "a new plan for
dividing the city under a joint
Arab-Israeli administration,"
"extra-territoriality for the Holy
Places," similar to that of certain
Vatican basilicas outside the
Vatican walls in Rome.
Panorama said of the latter
that "in this manner, Jerusalem
would have a religious adminis-
tration and this, for the Vatican,
would be the best choice."
Israeli security forces arrested
Capucci on Aug. 18,1974, on sus-
picion of aiding members of El
Fatah. He was accused of acting
as a liaison for the Fatah com-
mand in Lebanon and of bringing
weapons and sabotage materials
from Lebanon to terrorista on the
West Bank.
CAPUCCI was sentenced on
Dec. 9. 1974, by a Jerusalem Dis-
trict Court to a total of 59 years'
imprisonment on six counts of
smuggling arms to terrorists in
Israel-occupied territory, having
contacts with terrorist agents,
and serving illegal organizations.

mum of 12 years as the six sen-

Louis Silk, chairman of the
Royal Palm Beach division, looks
to the golf-tennis outing as the
key to a successful campaign. He
has proposed that the event be
held annually, and in cooperation
with the Indian Trail C.C. has
created a permanent trophy to
honor the occasion.
At a luncheon following
completion of play, there will be a
campaign message and the
awarding of more than one
hundred prizes to winners and
most participants.
The golf tournament has been
planned under the chairmanship
of Darwin F. Kabat and his
committee which includes George
Bartlett, Mike Cohen, BUI
Deutsch, Dr. Jack Gindes, Mel
Hershenson, Dan Jatlow, Sam

Falikman to Chair Delegation Attem
Leisureville Campaign
Heinz Falikman, a resident of
Boynton Reach, has once again
assumed the chairmanship of
The Leisureville Division for
the 1981 Federation- United
Jewish Appeal campaign. The
major events in Mr. Falikman's
life prior to settling in this area
with his wife, Doris, readily
explains their dedication to
Israel's survival and the needs of
Judaism in Palm Beach County.
Heinz was born in Berlin, Ger-
many, but was farsighted enough
to realize the full impact of the
Hitler era. Because of his fore-
sight he managed to migrate to
Israel in 1935 where for the next
19 years he was the chief engineer
of a marine salvage company.
In 1954 Falikman came to the
United States and began a new
career as a tug boat captain,
which led him to his own com-
mercial venture in sheet metal
manufacturing. He retired from
active business in 1972 and
became the campaign chairman
ai Leisureville in L976
Falikman is a member of B'nai
B'rith, The Hillel Foundation and
is responsive to many other
Jewish causes which his innate
modesty keeps him from
enumerating. He stated that "It
i he duty of every Jew to give
more in order to insure the survi-
val of Israel and have a viable
Jewish community hen1 in Palm
Beach County"

Burg Defends Police Chief's Firing T" B'Shevat Means]
Interior Minister Yosef
Burg has appeared in the
Knesset to defend his dis-
missal of Police Inspector
General Herzl Shafir and to
deny Shafir's allegation
that he had asked him to
defer a police investigation
into possible financial ir-
regularities within the
ministry until after this
year's Knesset elections.
Burg, a leader of the National
Religious Party, spoke in repLj to
agenda motions by three opposi-
tion MKs supporting Shafir's
request for a special commission
headed by a Supreme Court
Justice to investigate the cir-
cumstances of his dismissal. At
the same time, Attorney Genera
Yitzhak Zamir asked the polici
for a secvet file code-namec

could not have ordered Shafir to
fmeza the police inquiry into
these matters because Shafir
never told him such an inquiry
, was in progress. According tc
Burg, the Inspector Genera
\ informed him a month ago that
\ "anonymous rumors and ac-
cusations" were reaching the
police. Shafir would not disclose
their nature but characterized thi
material so far collected a
"nonsense," Burg said.
I he Interior Minister said that
inasmuch as this is an election
year and unsubstantiated
charges can be used for political
purposes, he had simply urged
Shalii to ensure that none ol the
material would be leaked to the
Burg said he subsequently
fired Shafii because ol a crisis ol
confidence" that developed rrom
in accumulation ol incidents,"
among them secret Laps record
mgs by the police .,i confidential
iH-Hings thej hod with senior
Interior Ministry officials
BURG DID not specifically
oppose an inquiry into the cir-
cumstances of his dismissal of
Shafir. He proposed, however,
that the agenda motions be
referred In the Knesset s Interior
Committee where, presumably,
they will be taken up by a special
subcommittee on police matters
The three MKs Amos Hadar
of the Labor Party. Naftali Fader
of Mapam and Uri Avnen of

Surprises in Store
The decision to advance the elections in Israel
from November to an earlier date has had surprising
effect in the general press. It does seem as if Prime
Minister Begin is a bone in everybody's throat and
that no one can wait for his descent from power.
This suggests that what is expected is a
radically different approach to Begin s conducting of
the currently stalled peace negotiations with Egypt,
which everybody and his brother blames on the be-
leaguered Prime Minister.
We would like to remind those who can't wait for
Mr. Begin to leave that the Labor Party was from the
beginning unalterably opposed to the unconditional
ceding of the Sinai to Egypt which Mr. Begin was
responsible for doing.
Neither Prime Minister Begin nor Israel ever
receives even an iota of congratulation for this
gesture. What, in effect, is anticipated are more con-
cessions from Jerusalem once Mr. Begin goes. More
and more and more. There may well be surprises in
store for those with such expectations so that, by
contrast, in the end Mr. Begin may not seem that
"intransigent" at all.
Let there be no mistake. A change in power, let
us say the assumption to the premiership by the
Labor Party's Shimon Peres, will not mean a
radically different view toward the negotiations.
Clerics Sign on Line
For Reduced Israel Aid
Massachusetts-based group
called "Search for Justice and
Equality in Palestine" has urged
the United States to reduce its
aid to Israel until Israel
"recognizes the human rights of
the Palestinian people."
A petition supporting that de-
mand, signed by 400 clergymen
and other religious figures, also
called on the U.S. to negotiate
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization. "U.S.-PLO talks
will allow Washington to better
understand Palestinian aspira-
tions and will enable the U.S. to
act as a genuine mediator" in the
Arab-Israel dispute, the petition
stated. It also accused Israel of

cil of America (SCA). the co-
ordinating agency for the
Conservative, Orthodox and
Reform rabbinic and
congregational organizations, for
"hypocrisy and blatant lies." The
SCA statement, issued by Rabbi
Bernard Mandelbaum, SCA
executive vice president, noted
that among the signners of the
petition were Rev. Daniel
Berrigan and Rev. Jesse Jackson.
"These ministers-have often
made biased and unfounded
statements against Israel," the
SCA statement said. "Now,
however, they are joined by
others in accusing Uriel of
violating human rights. In 'doing
this, they ignore a recent UN
report which distinctly cites
Israel's observance of human
rights, in marked contrast to the
autocracies of its surrounding
neighbors. Syria. Iran. Iraq and
Saudi Arabia."
In commenting on the peti-
tion s call for the U.S. to meet
with the PLO. the SCA said the
PLO "is a terrorist organization
whose leadership has embraced
and fought alongside with the
Ayatollah Khomeini in his anti-
American policies which defy

Pictured above is a reduced

expressed intention, and it may
be changed at any time. The act
of signing such a letter and for-

Thoughts For 'Snowbirds'
Every community believes
that it is unique and, in fact, each
community is unique. Our com-
munity of Northern Palm Beach
County is indeed unique more
so than many other communities.
Our community is unique in
that it has grown in a single
decade from about 4,500 Jewish
families to between 50,000 and
60.000 Jews. Our community is
unique because of the ratio of
retirees to young families. Our
community is unique because of
the high percentage of people
who consider themselves
"snowbirds" living here several
months of the year and having
their main home in Northern
cities. Recently, one of our winter
visitors asked me why he should
support the Day School and in
fact why he should support the
Jewish Federation in this area. "I
support a Day School in my com-
munity up North and I give to
the Jewish Federation in my
Indeed, why should those ol
you who are snowbirds and those
of you who are retiress support a
Jewish Day School and the
Jewish Federation.
Some 2,000 years ago, our
rabbis in their wisdom pointed
out that all Jews are responsible

Under the new procedures, the
Social Security Administration
will work with U.S. embassies
abroad, and through any other
available channels, to locate and
obtain the early records of age or
birth. If no birth certificate or
early evidence of age can be
found, social security will accept
a written statement from the
applicant describing the cir-
cumstances under which the age
was falsified. This statement will
be used in lieu of a birth cer-
tificate in determining a peron's
real date of birth.
For these special rules to
apply, an applicant must be able
to prove that he or she adopted
an incorrect age to escape perse-
cution, confinement in concen-
tration camps, or extermination.
There are many different kinds of
evidence that the Social Security
Administration will accept as
proof that a person is a survivor
of the Holocaust. Included are
copies of correspondence from or
depositions to the West German
Government under in-
demnification procedures, official
war records, identification papers
or passports identifying the
holder as Jewish, and evidence of
residence in a Nazi-controlled
Even if a person does not have
evidence of survivor status, it is a
good idea to contact Social
Security. They may be other
records, for instance, with survi-
vor study organizations, which
social security can help locate.
Holocaust survivors who le-
ieve they are old enough to retire
ihould contact a Social Security
>ffice as soon as possible, because
the date the applications are filed
may determine the date benefits
begin. It is estimated that there
are between 2,000 and 10,000
Holocaust survivors of retire-
ment age who will be affected by
these new procedures.

Assembly earlier, which called for
total Israeli withdrawal from the
"occupied teritories," were
planning to force the suspension
of Israel from the 35th session of
the Assembly.
The Arabs were also de-
termined to do all in their power
to have the UN impose sanctions
on the Jewish State, instead of
merely passing vicious anti-
Israeli resolutions. But the turn
of events in the Mideast proved
that the Arabs and their allies,
despite their overwhelming
majority, do not operate in a
vacuum and cannot, therefore,
manipulate the international
community at all times.
ACCORDING TO diplomats
here, the Arab offensive against
Israel did not succeed during the
last Assembly, due mainly to
three factors: The Persian Gulf
war between two Moslem
countries, both outspoken
supporters of the Palestine
Liberation Organization; the
armed stand-off between Syria
and Jordan; and the Presidential
election in the United States.
"This General Assembly was a
very bad time to promote the
Palestinian cause," one diplomat
here observed. "For one thing,
the prestige of the PLO has
reached a new nadir as a result of
the war between two Moslem
countries that have adopted the
Palestinian cause. For another,
the Arab world was divided then,
and still is, as it has not been for
a long time." In addition, the
diplomat said, the Arab states
were in a state of confusion
during the American election un-
certain as to who was going to be
America's next President and
what approach the new
Administration would pursue in
dealing with the Arab-Israeli
Ambassador to the UN, pointed
to the decline of the PLO after
the Assembly voted 98-16 with 32
abstentions to establish a
Palestinian state in the West-
Bank. A similar resolution the
previous year had received
broader support with a vote of
117-14 and 19 abstentions. Blum
recalled. He contented that this
showed an erosion in support for
the PLO even at the UN.
While anti-Israeli debates and
resolutions have been routine at
the UN so routine that very
few delegates bothered attending
the debates a new ugly
element surfaced during the
deliberations of the last
assembly; vitriolic, undisguised
anti-Semitic statements.
A case in point was the state-
ment by Jordan's Ambassador
lla/.en Nuseibeh who in line
with the most notorious anti-
Semitic slurs charged that the
Jews control the wealth of the
world and from that position
manipulates the rest of
humanity. Blum, charging that
delegates to the UN "enjoy an
immunity to spread anti-Semitic
invectives with an openness and
in a way which will not be toler-
uted in any decent society,"
accused the Jordanian diplomat
of uttering "nothing but out-and-
out anti-Semitism of the worst
and most virulent kind."
its supporters did not succeed in
isolating Israel this time, or bring
about international pressure on
Israel to yield to their demands,
they added, however, to their
long-term goal of delegitimizing
the Jewish slate, a new series of
a mi Israeli and anti-Zionist
resolutions contributing to their
goal of legitimizing Palestinian

Hostel Reflects Problems
Immigrant Absorption in the Eighties
JERUSALEM It's a long}
way from the tent camps of the!
1940s to the absorption centers of
the 1980s, but today's im-
migrants to Israel face many of
the same problems as the olim of
a generation ago.
They come to a nation that is
still developing, a nation of im-
migrants from a dozen different
cultures and backgrounds all
trying to blend together into a
concept called Israel.
Today's immigrants, like
yesterday's, come needing help

Beit Giora. in Jerusalem, is one

adequate education and useful

attempts to understand and solve
his client's problems.
The working relationship be-
tween a client and a counselor or
caseworker, for the purpose of
this discussion, can be classified
into two general categories: 1)
those that involve a client who is
inotivuted to solve a problem and
sought the service, and 2) those
relationships which involve a
client or potential client, who is
not motivated to receive a ser-
vice, and probably didn't request
any contact from the agency to
begin with. Many of the latter
l>pe of clients are involuntary
ruskJunls of settings like hos-
pitals, nursing homes, residential
treatment centers, and correc-
tional institutions. Contact from
a social worker or a psychologist
is required as part of an overall
therapy or treatment plan. In the
community at large there are also
l>eople who are required, as terms
ol their purole, probation or
sentence, to be counseled by a
professional. There are also many
utbuni in the community who do
not have legal problems, but their
family members feel that they are
in need of counseling. Those
referred lor counseling in this
manner are frequently, but not
exclusively, children, adoles-
cents, and the aged. Their
families sometimes refer them to
sociul service agencies without
t heir knowledge or consent.
Traditionally, a counseling or
casework agency, like Jewish
Family & Children's Service, sees
many motivated clients and suc-
ceeds in helping many of these
individuals and families to reach
their goals of personal growth
and / or conflict resolution. But
some of the people that are inter-
viewed are there only reluctantly,
and only at the insistence of
other family members. (Again,
the focus of this article is not to
judge whether unmotivated
clients are in need of counseling,
but rather to ask the question
"how much change can be ac-
complished in a counseling situa-
tion where a client doearTt want
to be there?"). An unwilling
client not only resents his own
presence in a social worker's
office, or the social worker's
presence in his own home, but
can work very hard to keep inter-
views from continuing.
What, then, can one do to "get
help" in the community for a
friend or relative who needs help,
but won't seek it on his own?
First, you should approach that
friend or relative and attempt to
discuss your concerns. Try to
make the discussion as non-
threatening as possible to that
person. Remind him that you
care. If you think that the person
needs professional services, tell
him that too.
If the individual refuses to seek
help, and you feel that he is a
threat to his own health and / or
safety, or that of others, then it is
time for you to call an agency to
request help for that person.
When you call an agency which
provides the service and type of
intervention that you feel the
person needs, have as many facts
as possible at hand. If you want
to report a sick and isolated aged
adult, or a child who is severely
abused, try to not only get the
full name, but also the exact
address and the phone number,
so precious time and energy is
not lost trying to locate that
If you are a family member
who is calling to ask advice, or
request a service from an agency,
you are reminded that your
responsibility to your relative
doesn't end with a phone call and
a demand that the agency "do
something about it." The staff
members of social agencies are
trained personnel who make
diligent efforts to solve problems,
whether they exist within the in-
dividual, family or the com-
munity. The staff do not create
profound, overnight changes in
others. They don't provide an
equal substitute to a dependent
client for an involved and caring
family. Finally, social agency
staff produce more limited results
wnen tney are asked to work with
people who are not motivated to
make changes in their own lives.
Therefore, if the potential client
calls an agency himself to seek
help, he is investing his own time
and energy in trying to solve a
problem, and the chances for suc-
cessful, positive change is much

The problem with stress is not how to get rid of it. It's a part of
life. And it's nofeven all bad. The real problem with stress is how to
recognize it and control it. So it doesn't control you. >
Your body reacts to stressful situations with its nerves, glands and
hormones. And because these systems function throughout the body
what affects them can affect other parts of your body that may be
vulnerable at the time.
That's why stress is a factor in many people's heart attacks,
hypertension, ulcers, asthma, possibly even cancers, and probably
many other ailments. That's also why, in these timed of many stresses,
it's a major factor in increasingly costly health care.
You can recognize stress by heeding the warnings of your body
and emotions. Frustration. Anger. Hostilities that build up. Heavy
pressures of responsibility time demands and conflict. Headaches,
insomnia, muscle tension.
The key to handling stress is learning. Learning to air your
feelings in constructive ways, to train your body to relax, to repair a
lifestyle before you're faced with expensive medical repairs. You have
to learn what your stresses are and the best ways for,you to deal
with them.
But they must be dealt with.
Because the longer you remain in the
grip of stress, the more crushingand
costly its effects.

Survival of the Jew and Judaism
Tern pie Beth Sholom
Lake Worth. Florida
One of the greatest problems
we as Jews face is survival, and
the greatest mitzvah that ny Jew
can perform today is the mitzvah
of survival. The story is related
that before Golda Meir. OBM.
passed away, she spoke to a
group of American Jews who had
just completed their tour to
Israel. She said to them. What
can I ask of you. now that you are
returning to America'' Shall I ask

thing different, and don't be
-urpr;M-d.' She told the group.
1 plead with you to provide your
children with a good Jewish
education. Make sure that your
grandchildren will be Jewish!"
Golda Meir wasn't a rabbi, but
she understood the meaning of
"survival plus." She understood
it. even as Yochanan Ben Zakai
did We are told in the Talmud
that when Jerusalem was
destroyed and the Temple was in
ruins. Vespasian, the conquering
general, as gesture of friendship
to the great rabbi, said. "Ask
anything you wish, and I will
give it to you." Yochanan Ben
Zakai answered. "Allow me to
establish an academy of learning
at Yavneh." This seems difficult
to understand The streets of
Jerusalem were rivers of blood,
the Temple was reduced to ashes,
people were being sent into
exile 1- :hat the only thing he
could ask for0 But this wise rabbi

boy in his teens, came with his
parents from Tulchin. in the
depths of Russia, to the pampas
of Entre Rios in Argentina,
around the turn of the century.
Practically the entire population,
at the urging of their rabbi, came
with them. The young Alberto
fell in love with the land, the
gauchos, and the language. This
book, written in Spanish origi-
nally, is considered a classic in
Argentine literature, and by 1955
had already gone through 21
printings. These settlers did not
come to the big cities, to follow
the usual Jewish occupations,
but came to work the land and be
farmers, which was, according to
their rabbi, the only decent
occupation for a Jew; all others
were corrupt and corrupting.
The stories run the gamut from
hilarious, as the one about the
day the Jews celebrated Argen-
tine Independence Day, to the
tragic tale of Don Remigio, the
gaucho. and his son Juan. Ixtve
- love for Jews and Gauchos
alike, and for the land, is the hall-
mark of Gerchunoff's prose, and
very little is lost in the trans-
lation. The book is dedicated to
Baron de Hirsh. who founded
these colonies, and "whose
bread (u-rchunoff writes, "was
the first I ate in this new land."

The Jews ot Bulgaria" will be
reviewed in this space in a forth-
coming issue, by Dr. Joseph
Leo W. Schwartz. Wolfson of
Hun tirrf. Portrait of a Scholar.
Philadelphia: The Jewish
Publication Society of America.
1978.283 pp. $10.95
Harvard University has long
had its share of legendary
teachers: George Lyman Kit-
tredge, Charles Townsend
Copeland, Bliss Perry, and a host
of others. Harry Austryn
Wolfson was another of these
legends. He spent more than
sixty years of a most creative and
productive life at Harvard and
was one of its most devoted and
distinguished sons. His contri-
butions to Jewish philosophy in
particular and to the history of
philosophy in general are perhaps
unparalleled. Even a single one of
his works could have taken a
lesser man a whole lifetime to
produce, but Wolfson was no
ordinary man. During his lifetime
these classic volumes appeared:
Crescas' Critique of Aristotle;
The Philosophy of Spinoza:
Unfolding the Latent processes
of his reasoning: PhUo: Foun-
dations of Religious Philosophy
in Judaism, Christianity, and
Islam; The Philosophy of the
Church Fathers: Faith, Trinity,
Incarnation; The PhilUosophy of
the Kalam. More books which he
left unfinished when he died on
Sept. 19, 1974 at the age of 87,
are still being published.
In 1925, when Lucius N.
Littauer endowed a Chair of
Jewish Studies especially for
him, he was one of the few
Usachers in any college in his
field. Today there are more than
300 colleges and universities
which have some kind of Judaic
Studies program in their curricu-
lum, a truly remarkable achieve-
ment, and one to which Wolfson
made a significant contribution.
But Wolfson of Harvard is
more than a record of one
scholar's ventures and ad-
ventures in the paths of know-
ledge. Written by one of his
students and a life-long friend,
and a distinguished anthologist
in his own right, the book
presents a heartwarming study of
a brilliant and humane gentleman
whose personality affected the
lives of scores of his students and
colleagues. There was, in fact,
only one Wolfson in the whole
history of American Judaic
studies, and it will be a long time
before he will be replaced.
Wolfson was born in Ostrin.
Lithuania, and attended yeshivas
in his native town. Slobodka.
Grodno, and New York. For the
first twenty years of his stay in
the United States he had to
struggle to study and somehow
make a living. The next twenty
years were devoted to building
his reputation at Harvard, which
grew with each article, mono
graph, and book. In the last years
ol his long life he was world
renowned, honored by many
uni\ with degrees, many
societies for his scholarly ac-
complishments, and loved by
hundreds who came to him for
advice and assistance. The roster
of his students who achieved
fame in their field is very long.
Wolfson never married except
perhaps, to his scholarship. He
had a study in the famous
Widener Library in Harvard
where he built up one of the most
important collections of Judaica
in any American university
Seven days a week he could be
found working in his study,
thinking, reading, making in-
numerable notes. writing,
reading proofs, and revising.
Here he would meet his students
who came to him for help with
their own work, distinguished
guests from all over the schlarly
world, Jewish, Crhistian, and
Moslem. He was a master of
Hebrew, Latin, Greek, Arabic,
several modern languages, as
well as English, which he wrote
with a literary style not often
found in scholarly tomes. One of
the most interesting elements of
Schwartz's biography is the
wealth of quotations from so
many of Wolfson's works, so that
the reader can perceive the clarity
if his thinking and the elegance
?f his expression.
Wolfson was always on
voyages of discovery, and Sch-
wartz recreates these voyages for
us with loving regard and
reverence. Regretfully, the book
was not published in Schwartz's
lifetime, because he predeceased
Wolfson. A final chapter by
Lewis H. Weinstein, a Boston
attorney and a member of
Wolfson's circle of intimate
friends narrates the last decade of
Wolfson's extraordinary life, the
years that Schwartz did not live
to recount. A complete biblio-
graphy of all of Wolfson's works,
from a bibliographv prepared in
1912 to 1977 completes this
fascinating book. One leaves this
book filled with admiration for a
truly great scholar and humanist,
a teacher of boundless knowledge
and ability to inspire his
students, and a true mensch.

SAID that the arrest of
t'i Jewish scientist and
fist Viktor Brailovsky, seen
he context of the dramatic
in Jewish emigration from
SSH and the intensification
ItiSemitism, was profoundly
disturbing. Cotler observed that
Brailovsky's arrest in particular
was "an ominous note, Brail-
ovsky being for the Soviet Jewry
movement what (Andrei)
Sakharov is to the dissident
Cotler expressed appreciation
for Canada's strong stand in
Madrid by Ambassador Louis
Rogers, particularly his out-
spoken condemnation of anti-
Semitism. MacGuignan replied
that "Canada regards Soviet
anti-Semitism as unacceptable
and has told the Soviets in
Madrid that all persecutions,
harassments and violations of
human rights must stop at once."
The Canadian minister has
recommended a post-Madrid con-
tinuing review of human rights
violations by an internationally
established committee of experts
to monitor compliance with the
Helsinki human rights agree-
ments. He also proposed to the
Soviets the establishment of a bi-
lateral round-table conference on
the implementation of human
Forces. Though Israel had
several times made clear its will-
ingness to entertain any proposal
for the establishment of a
military base here, there had been
no affirmative response. The
decision in favor of Egypt was
therefore especially disappoint-
ing to Jerusalem.
VISITS TO Haifa by units of
the Mediterranean Sixth Fleet
had given rise to hopes that
Israel's leading port could prove
a reliable base for the American
ships. In 1978, the aircraft carrier
Nimitz, and in 1980 the aircraft
carrier J. F. Kennedy visited
here, and a number of smaller
naval vessels in between. While
the sailors were enjoying shore
leaves, it is presumed that the
senior officers were appraising
with expert and professional eyes
all the logistic and military at-
tractions of the place.
The loss of Iran and the uncer-
tain political situation in Turkey
which calls into question the
reliability of existing American
bases there, make it all the more
important, therefore, that the
U.S. extend its pieds-a-terre in

Newsman's Egypt Articles
Bar Paper From Stands
Series of articles dealing with
internal political developments in
Egypt is believed to be the reason
why the Egyptian government
issued orders barring the author.
Jerusalem Post Middle East
affairs editor Anan Safadi, from
returning to Egypt.
Safadi. who spent six days in
Cairo last week, began the series
with an article referring to
reports of a power struggle
between Vice President Hosni
Mubarak and close associates of
President Anwar Sadat.
THE STORY appeared jointly
in the English-language Post and
the Hebrew daily. Al Hamish-
mar. The Egyptian authorities
denounced it as "false reports
and lies." Safadi told reporters
here that he stood by his account
and that it was baaed on in-
formation from reliable sources.
He expressed "surprise" at the
ban, noting that the paper had
good relations with the Egyptian
authorities throughout the peace
11 was not clear whether the
ban was against Safadi or all
P r correspondents or whether
it would affect the sale of th<
Post on Cairo newsstands.
Several hundred copies of thr
newspaper are sold daily in
Egypt. The sale of the Post was
in fact the first commercial dee
transacted between an Israeli and
an Egyptian company.
The second article of Safadi"s
posed the numfinn. What
would an Egyptian admin
islration controlled by Hosni
Mubarak look like?' The writer
said Mubarak would not renege
on the peace treaty with Israel
but probably would cut back on
normalization until a solution to
the Palestinian problem was

Lonist Organization
[which authorized him

argued that it was feasible to
physically transport houses,
yards, trees and green houses to
new locations in the Shalom
salient where the soil and climate
are the same as in the Yamit and
Raf fiah regions of Sinai.
By so doing, he said the
government would avoid the
phenomenon of paying "ransom"
money to the settlers in compen-
sation for their property and
avoid the cost of building new
settlements from scratch.
SO FAR no official body had
endorsed Weitz's plan. It has en-
countered opposition from the
Sinai settlers who are negotiating
with the government for compen-
sation. Representatives of Sadot,
the oldest settlement, told Weitz
he came too late. They said many
settlers have already committed
themselves to other projects after

which is located at the
Yeshiva University of Los
Angeles (YULA),
estimated that the van-

midnight and 5 a.m. on the
morning of Jan. 7.
The outside walls of the

Mayor Tom Bradley reacted
with anger when he learned about
the vandalism, he delared that
"the city of Los Angeles is proud
of its multi-racial, multi-cultural
population, and we do not accept
the ugly and shameful attempts
of the few sick vandals to fright-
en, threaten or goad us into the
pit with them."
Gov. Edmund Brown Jr.
reacted similarly to the incident.
At the same time there was a
flood of telephone calls to the
Center from Christian clerics
throughout Los Angeles offering
their help in cleaning the walls.
TWO CANS of spray paint
were found outside the building
by students as they prepared to
attend classes. Police are seeking
the whereabout of two young
men who participated in a bizarre
incident at the Center the
previous Sunday, and may be
connected with the vandalism.

Weitz drafted his proposal
about two months ago and asked
a team of experts, headed by
Prof. Haim Finkel, to study the
possibility of dismantling the
settlements and reassembling
them across the border. The
experts reported that it was not
only possible but could be done at
80 percent of the cost of building
new settlements.
Weitz estimated the cost of
moving Sadot at 20 million
Shekels But even as he outlined
his plan to the WZO Executive,
the Likud Knesset faction was
discussing compensation for the
farmers of the Yamit region.
THE CABINET has already
approved guidelines for compen-
sation Only Finance Minister
Yigal Hurwitz was opposed on
grounds that the sums were far
too generous and out of line with
what the government could
The Knesset Finance Commit-
tee is expected to discuss the
matter tomorrow. Meanwhile, the
Cabinet appointed Agriculture
Minister Ariel Sharon, chairman
of the Ministerial Settlement
Committee, to work out the
details ol compensation. Hurwitz
refused the job.
NEW YORK (ZINS) Not long after World War
II, Menachem Begin, now Prime Minister of Israel,
visited California soliciting money for Zionist forces
battling Britain for independence of Palestine. Mickey
Cohen, a prominent Los Angeles mobster, raised more
than $1 million, but then kept the money after persuading
a Los Angeles newspaper editor to run an article saying
that the ship loaded with weapons had sunk on the way to
Palestine. This allegation, among other allegations, is
contained in the Las Mafioso, by David Damaris, a
California author, who specializes in writing about
organized crime in the U.S.

Bar Engine Sales to fiat
(JTA) Rep. Benjamin
Rosenthal (D.. N.Y.) said
here that he will introduce
legislation in the new Con-

U.S.-made marine engines

Italian firm has contracted

revealed, he said, "a serious
failure of coordination" between
the Department of State and the
Department of Commerce when
the (ieneral Klectric Co., manu-
facturer of the engine cores,
applied for a license to export
them to Fiat.
"THE CRUCIAL role of the
White House in the engine sale it
apparent from a close reading of
the report," Rosenthal said.
General Electric shipped two
engines to Italy but, on State
Department instructions not to
export the others in the til
million deal, it put them in
The GAO review, initiated at
Rosenthal's request last Sept. 19,
said that though the engines, in
Rosenthal s words, "clearly were
for military purposes and were
destined for one of four nations
which President Carter had, a
month earlier, identified as
supporters of international
terrorism." the Policy and
Planning Division of the Depart-
ment of Commerce approved

The result is that many
Americans are now reduced to

have long been glamorous and

truth is that the camera like the

One reason for this is that

thing with them, or they are

And beyond a doubt, cameras are
more swift-looking, particularly
when they hang rakishly from the
neck at just the properly casual
angle. The Leica-wearer can snub
his Konica counterpart in the
way, say, that the owner of a
Mercedes throws the driver of a
Chevy into abject humiliation
and despair.
But then what? After that, it is
up to you. In effect, you must
communicate something with the
camera, or of what avail is it?
Since the growing national
malaise is to do just the opposite,
that is to say to become in-
creasingly silent, increasingly in-
different to the world outside, in-
creasingly passive in the face of
the daily active assault on our
capacity to survive, the news-
paper ads tell the story: photog-
raphy is giving way to hi-fi
home electronic entertainment
and TV games as the last
bastion of escape.
IT IS NOT that cameras are
disappearing altogether. A snob-
bish medical student of my
acquaintance walks around with
his Nikon carefully hung upon his
neck, and the camera is outfitted
with cheap lenses made in Tai-
wan because he has no intention
ever of using the camera, not
realty. The Nikon name's the
thing with which he hopes to
catch the conscience of admiring
onlookers, and the name's big
and clear to read. Who ever
bothers reading the small words
on a lens rim?
But this sort of senseless
establishment snobbism is an
exception these days. It is
counterrevolutionary. The
general rule is that the size of a
newspaper camera advertisement
shows greater and greater
diminution as the stereo and
games ads grow to full and even
double pages.
The merchants of glamorous
cameras, in a last desperate
measure to hold the fort, are
trying to counter the trend with

BUT STEREO and TV elec
tronic games offer to teach you
nothing. To bother you with no
threats of enlightenment that
might require individual response
or individual effort. In fact,
stereo advertises ever louder
decibel levels, a secret promise to
drown out the outside world with
glorious wattage produced by
equipment that looks just as
"professional" as any Leica or
Hasselblad ever did. Even more
All you have to do is press a
few buttons and sit back as you
watch dials, meters and flashing
lights. Even the music is beside
the point. Given this womb, the
purveyors of cameras have had it.
Nor is this latest mass anaes-
thesia confined to the home.
What self-rest ecting car doesn't
sport a stereo capable of deafen-
ing the best of us? And in the
streets these days, you can
always carry, blasting at lOOdb.,
the most exotic-looking radios
rigged out with casette-players to
achieve the same hallucinogenic
Blacks in particular are at-
tracted to this latter form of
"entertainment." They have
more agony to be blocked out of
their lives than most other
Americans, and that is why they
are the greatest purchasers of
such gear and the greatest
offenders on the street as they go
by, rocking and rolling.
MEANWHILE, back in the
house, when the do-nothingism of
stereo becomes frankly boring,
there is always the TVcorder to
watch, which has been taping one
program or another while you
have been making yourself deaf
worshipping at the dials of your
stereo rig. And there is always
the buffoonish electronic TV
game to invite your participation
in cretin-like performance when
the tapes become even more
boring than the hi-fi ever did.
The most affluent among us
may increasingly bemoan the
theft of their five-figure cars and
dashboard stereos replete with
' outrigger equalizer-amplifier and
sophisticated rearwindow
speakers. And, oh yes, the Nikon
in the glove compartment.
But for us homefolks, for
whom a Tercel does not a castle
make, good citizens bent on
saving energy, the stereo's the
thing. It is the source of our tran-
quilized spirit soothed by sound
against the warring world out-
side. The newspaper ads tell the
story, if not with sound then with
