Broward Teens To Tour
Israel June 19-July 16
The Teen Tour for 1974 encompassing all of Broward County
promises to be tbe greatest ever. The educational component of
the tour will be strengthened. Learning from the past two years,
changes and innovations have been made to make this year's
tour more meaningful.
The itinerary has been developed and coordinated by the
Broward Board of Rabbis, Rabbi Arthur Abrams, president; Dr.
Morton Malavsky, Teen Tour chairman. All plans have been for-
mulated in consultation and in cooperation with Jewish Welfare
Federations of North and South Broward, Dr. Robert Pittell,
chairman Teen Tour JWF.
To be eligible, a teen must be a high school student and
recommended by his respective rabbi or youth leader.
He will be interviewed by the tour co-leaders Mrs. Shirley
Cohen and Mordecai Opher.
Mrs. Cohen has been Involved with youth in the Hollywood
community for the past 9 years most successfully. She led the
first Teen Tour to Israel from Hollywood in 1972. Her rapport
with teenagers is highly regarded and her leadership for this
tour has been endorsed by the rabbis and Federation.
Mr. Opher has been acclaimed as an educator of the highest
calibre. He is Israeli born and although quite new to our com-
munity, it is felt that he will be a most valuable person in leading
this year's Teen Tour.
The tour co-leaders will interview every teenager together
with his parents. For an appointment please call 966-2200.
I apply for membership in Broward Teen Tour Broward
County, Florida and enclose a deposit of $150 to hold my reser-
vation, plus $25 non-refundable registration and processing fee.
Balance due by May 15, 1974.

More Cause for Hope
Iyar 5, which this year falls on Apr. 25, is the day Israel
and world Jewry officially launch its celebration of Israel's
25th anniversary cf independence.
As our Israel Independence Section C suggests, the
celebration is ;n marked contrast
to last year's exuberance.
The hope and jubilation of
the 25th anniversary year were
shattered by the Yom Kippur
War and its aftermath.
The large death toll from the
war and the Kiryat Shemona
massacre see below) cast a
shadow over what was in the
past a joyous celebration.
In addition, there is ail the uncertainty of a political
impasse that resulted in last week's resignation from office
by Prime Minister Golda Meir and the Monday decision
by her coalition government to try to stitch together a new
coalition without national elections a decision that is
being vigorously objected to by a large part of Israel's
In any event, there is sri!l more reason for hope than
gloom. The 1967 Six-Day War may have accustomed the
world, and indeed Israel herself, to swift and decisive
Reckoned in these terms, the Yom Kippur War was less
than swift but in no way as indecisive as Israelis seem
to believe it to have been.

Spoken With Vigorous Enthusiasm
One of Israel's leading writers, Yigal Mossinsohn, who
himself lost a son in the October war, castigated his coun-
trymen recently for their seli-doubts.
"We never won a greater victory," he declared.
The aftermath of the war still suggests that there is
hope for peace in the Middle East.
As for Israel's domestic sguabbles on her political
front, she has had them before. Remember David Ben-
Gurion's Rafi revolution?
And perhaps most important of all is that, on the
occasion of Israel's 26th anniversary, the Jewish people
throughout the world are united in the cause ot Israel as
never before.
We do not minimize the difficulties lying ahead for
Israel today. But we say with vigorous enthusiasm: "Happy
All Unspeakable Attaek
The- cynical Soviet-Arab move at the United Nations to
censor Israel for its retaliatory raid with absolutely no
mention of its provocation, the terrorist attack on Kiryat
Shemona, leaves us with no way to express the breadth of
our outrage at the massacre of 18 people, eight of them
children, in the small Israeli border town.
There have been so many unspeakable Arab "guer-

rpHE DADE County School
Board's proposed $54 million
bilingual program over the next
five VWfrs is on its face praise-
Who would have the temerity
to argue against it? After all. it
is true that Spanish-speaking
youngsters do suffer a learning
T1IEY ARE expected to
achieve a level of classroom pro-
ficiency in studies carried on in
English that is frequently beyond
thorn because English is not their
fir>t language.
If a student has only a reme-
dial capacity in written and
spoken English, then odds are
that he will be no more than re-
medial, say, in history. His dis-
ability in the language becomes
interpreted, In this cue, as a dis-
ability in history, too.
In the end. his disability in the
language leads to a generalized
identic disability about which
those who teach him are likely to
come to erroneous conclusions
that, for example, he is "dumb."
AM) SO, argues the school
board, why not introduce a sec-
on.i language (Spanish i in which
to pursue the otherwise common
curriculum? This would rid the
rj -tudent of his learn-
ing handicap and at the same
time compel the American-born
student to study a second lan-
e (Spanish).
To even the academic bunion,
the second language for the Span-
ish-speaking student would be
English, and to bring the argu-
ment for the school board's 954
million proposal to a crescendo
conclusion, it is suggested that
b Mi ;.. uneaten would thus "auto-
matically" be the recipients of
solid bilingual training.
After all, isn't that the mark of
a well-educated person? Don't
well-educated people speak at
least two languages with almost
equal proficiency?
IN FACT, the argument ends,
for too long, too many Americans
have ignored this truism, and it's
high time circumstance (if not
our good sense) forced us into
abandoning our ethnocentric,
monolingual mania.
Sorry. 1 can't agree.
I am, of course, all for our
knowing more than one language.

American in Athens, Rome. Paris.

make himself understood, expect-
ing that in his wild and noisy
gestures others ought to under-
stand HIM. because doesn't eve -y

and never once considering that
he ought to understand OTHERS
as a mark of his own civilization,
is not just discouraging because
it make us comical as a people.
It also demonstrates how pro-
vincial if not downright unedu-
cated we are.
BIT WHAT the Dade County
School Board has in mind is an
entirely different thing.
The board is responding to a
politically and economically pow-
erful Cuban immigrant society
here that believes its financial
contribution to the community in
the form of taxes and business
justifies its demand for Spanish
But that kind of intimidation
runs contrary to the American
acculturation nrocess.
IN A FRANKLY romantic way.
Leo Rosten deals with that proc-
ess in his classic "Education of
Hyman Kaplan."
Huston's work evokes the late
nineteenth early twentieth cen-
tury wave of immigration from
Europe to America and the proud
sweat immigrants raised to ac-
commodo' themselves to the
Americ; r melting pot process.
While this nation is forged in
the smithy of many cultures and
civilizations, and while the
emerging blend has at least ideal-
ly looked upon its contributing
elements with a nurturing benev-
olence, there has never been any
encouragement of separatism.

Addressing some 30 people at a
meeting organized by the Com-

emotionally about the plight of
her people "under Israeli occupa-

few of the Israelis want to hear
the voice of the Palestinians."
She spoke bitterly about Prime
Minister Golda Meir who, accord-
ing to Ms. Tawil, "always says
that a Palestinian people does not
exist at all."
At one point, when she was de-
scribing to her audience the "per-
secution" of Palestinians by the
Israelis, she was asked by this
JTA reporter about Jews in Arab
lands who have been persecuted
for years and about the fact that
some half-million Jews have left
the Arab countries without being
allowed to take their belongings
with them.
Ms. Tawil. visibly irritated by
the remark, denied any mistreat-

MEIR PAYIL, Moked leader ____
and member of the Israeli Knes-

dress the meeting, responded to
Ms. Tawil's denial by noting that
in 1941 a full-scale pogrom
against Jews took place in Iraq.
Payil and Ms. Tawil arrived
here Apr. 15 for a separate three-
week lecture tour across the
country. Their trip is sponsored
by the Committee on New Alter-
natives in the Mideast.
Payil, who is a historian, called
for recognition of the Palestini-
an's right to self-determination
but said at the same time that the
Palestinians on their part should
declare their recognition of the
Jewish State.
main problem is that while the
Yom Kippur War was a military
victory it was, nonetheless, a "po-
litical failure." The Israelis, Payil
said, are not aware of this dis-
tinction nor that the Israeli gov-
ernment has lost, as a result of
the war, its "freedom of strate-
gic action."
Referring to the Kiryat She-

growing in both sides each
side talks about revenge."

FINALLY, the most potent ar-
gument the school board offei > in
support of the proposal, the value
of a bilingual program for the

Bilingual programs that are
academically sound, not simply
pragmatic, take into considera-
tion the civiiizational value of a
second and even a third language.
Understood in these terms,
language choices are not imposed
from outside. Furthermore, they
are made much later along in
school than the proposed pro-
gram has in mind, and among the
choices for a clusicall) sound
education, Spanish as a second or
even third language is low man
on the Totem pole.

mid-1960s to defend poor Jews
in deteriorating New York City
neighborhoods, was presently
laden with many -provocateurs"
allegedly planted by various op-
posing bodies who were hamper-

Without Kahane, the JDL has
no future, the sources said. Ka-
hane's future is also clouded. He
has been indicted by Israeli
courts on charges of arms smug-

population and acts to disrupt
friendly relations between Israel
and the U.S.
In New York, David Fisch, na-
tional executive director of the
Jewish Defense League, said that
the JDL will continue its activi-

SPEAKING AT a press confer-

manifestations of anti-Semitism
and contended that Kahane will
still maintain a position with the

continue "to smuggle letters tell-

that Kahane's leeent UTgingS to

Rabin is 52 and the youngest
premier-designate in Israel's his-
tory. He was nominated by 298-

ister Shimon Peres.
Rabin immediately began talks
aimed at forming a coalition,
which may be a harder job than
the six-week deadline President
Ephraim Katzir placed on him.
Failure to meet the deadline
would mean new elections.
His major stumbling block will
be the National Religious Party

captured in the Six-Day War. to
Without the NRP, his chances

Rabin is on record as being
willing to return much of the

Soviets Lash Israel in Security Council
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) The Soviet Union has unleashed
vitriolic 'attack against Israel as the Security Council continued
its debate on Lebanon's complaint against Israel's action.
Yakov Malik the Soviet Ambassador, denounced the routine
act of aggression against peace-loving Lebanon" and called on the
Council not only to condemn but
also to take 'Effective measures"
against Israel.
HE ALSO called on the United
States to back off in its support
of Israel.
As the debate continued, the
U.S. continued to seek a "bal-
anced" as opposed to a "one-
sided resolution" and hinted that
it would either veto or abstain
from voting on a resolution con-
demning Israel without at the
same time condemning Lebanon.
THE ARAB-Soviet bloc and
China continued to press for a
harsh condemnation of Israel.
Some analysts noted that the
Soviet Union may press for a
tough resolution in order to re-
assure the Arab nations that its
quest for detente will not lead it
to abandon its Arab clients and

Security Council, accused Israel
of aggression against Lebanon
and warned that if Israel wants
peace, it must stop forthwith all
"irresponsible actions."
"Israel, before anyone else,
must choose between war and

We Keep I
Sharp Eye
On Soviets
Continued from Page 1-A
The ominous portent of a new
Soviet military build-up of Syria
was contained in a report by the
Beirut newspaper Al-Anwar.
The paper said Syria will re-
ceive the most modern fighter
aircraft and "Scud" ground-to-
ground missiles from the Soviet
Union under a new arms deal
signed by Syrian President Hafez
Assad in Moscow.
which quoted diplomatic sources,
Syria has already received the
highly sophisticated MIG 23
fighter aircraft and is to get the
even more advanced MIG-25.
In addition, the Soviet Union
agreed to train Syrian Air Force
pilots in the USSR to fly the
MIG-25s, the first time the Rus-
sians have agreed to train the
pilots of any but Warsaw Pact
Of equal concern was a report
from Moscow that Syria and the
Soviet Union, reaffirming the im-
portance of "consolidating Syria's
defensive power," have stated
that any agreement on disengage-
ment with Israel should be an
inseparable part of an overall
Middle East settlement.
THAT POSITION was contain-
ed in a ioint statement released
in Moscow and Damascus as As-
sad flew home after a five-day
visit to the Soviet capital. The
statement also stressed Syria's
"firm and legitimate right to use
all effective means to liberate its
occupied territory."
Question Box
What is the attitude of Ju-
daism towards homo?xuality?
The Bible (Leviticus: 20:13)
expressly prohibits homosexual-
ity and considers this relation-
ship between males as an abomi-
nation. The penalty prescribed
for such a transgression is death.
The rabbis also forbid Lesbian
practices, (Sifra, Leviticus 18:3)
basing this on a Biblical state-
ment. Maimonides expressly for-
bids Lesbianism (Issure Biah
Generally speaking, homosex-
uality is considered as an unnat-
ural act. Some venture to say that
when the Bible states that hu-
man-kind was created as "male
and female." it meant to stipulate
that man was created to be a
heterosexual being. Hence any
form of homosexuality is contrary
to the nature of man and to the
role which the Almighty intended
for man to play in this matter.
Why doe Jewish tradition
forbid a Jew from engaging in
hunting as a sport?
A number of reasons are ad-
vanced for this prohibition. Some
contend that wounding and kill-
ing animals for sport is a matter
of wastefulness. Since the animal
is not being killed for food, one
is simply wasting the life of the
animal for sheer entertainment
tl'ahad Yitzchak, S.V. Tezdah).
Another reason is given by
Rabbi E/t-kiel Landau. He claims
that hunting animals for sport is
a means of being cruel to ani-
mals. Furthermore, the hunt it-
self sometimes endangers the life
of the hunter.
Judaism prohibits man from
being ciuel to animals by causing
them to suffer in any way. Fur-
thermore, Judaism forbids man
to endanger his life unnecessar-
ily, just for the sport of it. The
two people who are referred to
in the Bible as hunters (i.e., Nim-
rod and Essau) were never held
in high esteem in Jewish tradi-
tion. Animals may be killed only
for food or other human needs
and not for sport.

the Soviet authorities without
any action being taken on them
as yet
The Soviet government quietly
committed itself to permit the
emigration of 35,000 Jews a year,
in the hope of being among the
nations which receive preferred
treatment in trade agreements
with the United States.
The amendment by Sen. Henry
Jackson to the foreign trade bill
now pending before Congress in-
sists on something stronger. Sup-
ported by a majority of Senators,
it provides that no privileged
treatment be given to the Soviet
Union in trade and credits until
Moscow agrees to permit the
emigration of anyone who wishes
to leave the country, as stipu-
lated in the international agree-
ment to which the Soviet Union
is a signatory.

from the Soviet Union, is dee))
ly interested for a number of
weighty reasons in preventing

'riii: ISRAELI National Bas-
ketball Team came, they saw.
they conquered. For a group of
boys who virtually were pulled
out of the front lines, they did
exceptionally well, completing
their U.S. tour with an 8-4 rec-
ord against fair opposition.
In the only tough game, against
the Marathon Oilers, the National
Amateur Champs, they were
beaten badly at 112-83. In other
games the Israelis lost one
against Rockhurst in Kansas City
by 4 points, against Siena in Al-
bany they were trounced by 6.
and in a tilt against former pros
in Cincinnati they were downed
bv 11.
ON THE OTHER side, against
an all-star aggregation in Jack-
son Height-. L.I., they zipped to
a 40 point win. and in Rochester,

vi reity by 42 points.
Perhaps the most humorous
situation of the whole tour devel-
oped in the Jackson Heights Jew-
ish Community Center at a
breakfast provided the team by
the local Jewish community.
While the tables were bein. 1

the sanctuary, Nat Holman, pres-

mittee Sports for Israel, moved
the team to the hallway between
the dining room hall and syn-

NAT HAD seen the boys in ac-
tion the night before and had
some suggestions to make con-
cerning their play. Get the pic-
ture now. The team. Nat, and by-
standers were wearing skullcaps,
and as the boys listened eagerly,
Holman pivoted and pirouetted
in different areas clutching his
falling yarmulka as he went
through his evrations.
The old master was in his Cel-
tic day form as he demonstrated
different plays and the remarks
were serious in content. The boys
as well as bystanders, including
this writer, virtually rolled on
the floor in delight watching the
greatest player of all time ex-
pound on the delicate points of
the game.
PERHAPS THE warmest expe-
rience was encountered as the
team emerged from the Kansas
City airport close to midnight on
a Sunday evening.
Despite the late hour a group
of youngsters, led and organized
by Rabbi Radzik. greeted them
with ho>a dancing and lilting Is-
raeli songs of the day. Coach Al
Ileinnio was so touched that he
began to cry and the team as a
whole repeatedly thanked and
.1 the youngsters for their
"boachem le-shalom."
Included among the welcoming
party was the Mayor Pro-Tern of
the city, Richard Berkley, as well
as Councilman Joel Palofsky, and
many officials from Rockhurst
College, a Catholic institute.
ON THE subject of Israelis and
sports, a Sabra has emerged as
the idol of Jai-Alai followers in
Miami. Joey Cornblit, the off-
spring of Israeli parents who had
emigrated to Miami, is the darl-
ing of bettors at the Miami Fron-
ton. Joey, a 17-year-old high
school senior, may be the first
American professional Jai-Alai
player to make it big.
He started playing at the a e
of 13 and caught the eye of pro-
moter Stanley Berenson, who
couldn't believe that he was the
discoverer of an American play-
er, let alone a Sabra who had
moved from Israel,
Berenson had Joey study at his
Jai-Alai school in Spain while
Joey was an 11th grader. In the
summer of 1972. Cornblit was
placed in competition against
veteran Basques, who dominate
the game. It was ridiculous to
.see the raw rookie enter play as
a 3-2 favorite his first time out.
Joey won 5 of his first 15
matches, which supposedly is un-
precedented for a raw rookie. In
hi.- firsl 4 months as a pro, young
Joey has won S12.000 including
salary and bonuses because of his
winning percentage.

How You Can Save on Postage
YVTTH THE price of stamps rising, there is also
something of a mail crisis. Some have ex-
pressed the fear that the gas and electric com-
pany and even the installment houses may soon
stop sending out bills.
It has been suggested that perhaps we should
return to the use of birds for communication.
Noah got good results with a dove, when the
postal system was disrupted by the flood.
IT IS SAID the Rothsehilds got their start
using homing pigeons to get the first news of
the defeat of Napoleon, enabling them to cash
in on the Stock Exchange.
James Gordon Bennett, publisher of the New
Yoik Herald, got many scoops by the building
up of his pigeon carrying news service, getting
"scoops" thereby over other newspapers.
Homing pigeons would provide cheaper serv-
ice. What does a pigeon need'' A few crumbs of
biead and the pigeons don't have any unions.
AMONG JEWS, if your ears tingle, they say,
someone is thinking of you.
U.n.-tein expressed a belief in the possibility
of telepathic communication. He noted that the
existence of electric currents and radio waves
'iad also been ridiculed. He thought it was pos-
ible that there are human emanations of which
we are ignorant.
Telepathy would be the ideal solution for the
Post Office problem. You wouldn't need any
stamps and you wouldn't worry about spelling
and if the gas company sent you a bill, you could
telepathically tell them what you think of them.

THE END OF AN ERA Prime Minister
Golda Meir addresses members of the Knes-
set in the heyday of her government. Lower
left is Defense Minister Moshe Dayan. Gaz-
ing at the Prime Minister (second from right
in first row) is Finance Minister Pinchas Sa-
pir. Immediately to her left is Foreign Minis-
ter Abba Eban.
Israel enters her 26th year in a
somber mood. In contrast with
her glorious 25th anniversary
celebration, when the triumph
she experienced in the Six-Day
War brought the nation to a
maximum level of prosperity
and creativity, the eve of Israel's
26th year saw the resignation
of Prime Minister Golda Meir
and a stern command from
President Ephraim Katzir to the
contending parties to come up
with a new government within
short order or schedule new
elections. Where strength and
unity reigned, now there is divi-
sion and blame-seeking symbol-
ized by the Agranat Commission
findings for Israel's alleged urv
preparedness in the Yom Kippur
War. It is the Agranat findings
that led to Mrs. Meir's resigna-
tion, as well as for demands that
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
share the blame with Chief of
Staff David Elazar, who has
since quit the post and been re-
placed by Maj. Gen. Mordechai
Gur. Against a backdrop of this
restrained national spirit, Col-
umnist Carl Alpert, writing from
Haifa, wonders if the military
emphasis of former independ-
ence anniversary celebrations
is not out of style and if a more
restrained and sober spirit is not
more in keeping with Israel's
present-day realities.
Israel's 26th Anniversary Being Celebrated
By a Somber Nation Learning Bitter Restraint
ISRAELIS ARE celebrating their Independence
Day, but most of them are still not yet quite
certain what their mood will be. Even after 25
years, Israel has not found the formula for ob-
servance of its national holiday.
In most years the central event had been
the big military' parade and the air force aerial
show. The dual purpose was apparently to flex
our muscles and to demonstrate our armed pow-
er as a warning to the foe, on the one hand, and
to give the Israeli citizen a sense of pride and
confidence, a kind of civic morale booster.
SUPPLEMENTING THE parade were nu-
merous other events of varied cultural and en-
tertainment value. The general mood had al-
ways been one of rejoicing, light-hearted gaiety
and a general sense of self-satisfaction at our
In recent years, there had been a growing
criticism of the military aspects of the celebra-
tion. Many had advocated shifting the emphasis
to economic development, both industrial and
agricultural; to cultural and scientific creativity;
to youth and education and health. It was for
values like these that the State was created
not for the tanks and guns and jet planes.
CERTAIN OF the organized events have
become fixtures. The annual song festival is
popular. The street entertainment shows, the
fireworks, the house parties, the tens of thou-
sands of children dancing in the streets, all have
their place in the observance.
Even the giddy habit of striking people over
the head with the noisy but harmless plastic
hammers, has in some curious way become iden-
tified as an integral part of the day's celebration.
Historians and sociologists of the future will be
hard put to ascertain the origin or significance
of this bit of madness.
A LARGE question mark still hovers over
this year's celebration, and no one yet knows
how the public will react. We are still too close
to the Yom Kippur War. Though we emerged
from that war victorious, the after-effect of the
shock is still being felt. Too many families are
still in mourning for sons, brothers, husbands,
to enable the rest of us to rejoice with abandon
in the streets.
The military victory has been followed
quickly by a series of political compromises of
which the public is still suspicious. The northern
border still echoes to the thunder of heavy ar-
THE FREQUENT rotation of young men in
the military' service is still constant reminder
that the threat of war has not been removed.
We are observing Independence Day 1974
with mixed feelings. We rejoice in our national
existence, but we mourn many dead. We sing
and dance and laugh in the streets, but we are
not free of the Yom Kippur trauma. Even a mas-
sive military display seems incongruous when
we think of what happened to the Barlev line.

Not a War Among Jews The Issue is Clarification
rpHE MEMBERS of the present
government continue to argue
among themselves whether we
should have made a preemptive
strike on the Egyptian and Syr-
ian forces on Yom Kippur. be-
fore they commenced their plan-
ned and synchronized aggression.
The Cabinet Ministers, who
bath pose the question and re-
ply to it. declare with a great
measure of self-satisfaction, that
their reasoning had been correct
when they allowed the enemy to
open fire.

singer fied. no warning was given
IUt wh..
called a preemptive strike, the
political problem must always be
considered: we must never un-
derestimate it.
Members of the government,
who try to have a public discus-
sion on the subject as to whether
we should have attacked the
Egypytians and Syrians betore
2 p.m.. on Oct. 6. are wasting
their time. This question is no
longer practical and is based on
imagination, which makes possi-
ble, for a short while, an escape
from reality.
The members of the gov-
ernment would have their con-
science live with a falsehood.
They can not. From the start, an
attempt like this is doomed to
failure. They will soon seek the
only factor which can clear the
air in Israel: the truth.

ing reports on concentrations of

the Egyptians and the Syrians.

the ten days between Rosh I-ta
fhonah and Yom Kippur, we
could have sent to the Golan
Heights and to the Mitla E*m
tanks and guns.
For this purpose, it would have
been necessary on one of these
days to mobilize a certain num-
ber of Israeli reserve soldiers. It
would have been possible to
bring up the overwhelming ma-
jority of the tanks to the cease-
fite lines in their transport car-
Jn order to understand this
point more ciearly. let us sup-
pose that during the course of
several da>\> we bring up to the
Golan about 500 tanks, and con-
centrate in Sinai, at a suitable
distance, not too far from and
not "too near the Suez Canal,
about 700 tanks.

in the Spring of 1948. we did
not have the necessary force to
subdue the aggression of our
enemies. Our force was set up
during the fighting. Thta waj not
tne case between Rosh Hashonab
and Yom Kippur of 5734.
All the forces needed in order
to crush enemy aggression on
both fronts were at our disposal.
This supposition is borne out by
fact.-. After we had brought a
number of tanks to both fronts,
we overcame the advancing ene-
my, outranking him in a bril-
liant encirclement.
HOW MICH more effective
would this have been if the tank.-
had been in the places th.y
should and could have been,
ready for firing, for movement,
for attack?
But wheie were they when
the enemy opened his combined
attack? The answer is a bitter
pill to swallow, but we have no
alternative but to let all Israel
hear it. Our mighty war ma-
chine, at zero hour, was lined up
in encampments several hundred
kilometers from the front lines.
What would have happened if
the government, which had the
information and on whom the
re-ponsibility to assess it rested,
had acted with understanding
and responsibility, had taken ac-
cepted precautionary steps, mob-
ilized the reserves and brought
up army equipment? Two pos-
sibilities. The Bra, that the 'Aould have avoided attack-

needi the methods used in the
days of Joshua bin-Nun and
Calev son of Yafu.neh, or even
in the days of Mata Hari, or
Serge (Arye) Domb (known Bl
Leopold Trepper).
The main methods used today
are altogether different: they
float on high, unseen by us. They
are called "satellites."
America and Russia also have
these silent sky-borne spies,
which photograph everything.
The photographs are clear. And
if one need add to them, there
are also airplanes which cannot
be reached by anti-aircraft guns,
or by ground-to-air missiles.

There Can be Peace: But Only With Palestinians
London Chronicle Syndicate
"YASSER ARAFAT, leader of
the El Fatah Arab terrorist
group and head of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, which
encompasses nearly all Palestine
'resistance-' groups, is prepared
to live in harmony with the State
of Israel providing a Palestinian
State is established in Gaza and
the West Bank of the Jordan.
However, although the war with
Israel would then stop, the con-
flict would not end.
This was the central point made
by Said Hammami, the representa-
tive of the PLO in London, in a
remarkable exclusive interview
which he gave me here.
THE INTERVIEW, the first
that a PLO leader has given a
a Jewish journalist, took place in
Hammami's room at the Arab
League offices in Mayfair, Lon-
don. Hammami, a tall Jaffa-born
Arab, is considered a moderate.
He has been attacked by Arab
extremists as a traitor. He has
prepared for barmcny
also, he claims, been threatened
with death by Jewish or Zionist

could be in the claim that the
PLO has given up the demand
enshrined in its charter for the
dismemberment of the State of
Israel and the establishment of a
new secular State to replace it.
"We believe that the ultimate
solution of the conflict in the
Middle East is the establishment
of a bi-national State in partner-
ship with the Israeli Jewsand I
must emphasise Israeli Jews and
not world Jewryand Palestinian
Arabs and not Syrian or Saudi
Arabian Arabs," Hammami re-
BUT HE cor.c-eded the Pales-
tinian Arabs could not force a
partnership on a people who did
not want to be partners. There
had to be a mutual recognition of
Israeli and Palestinian nation-
hood. The Israelis had a right to
their independence, but so did
the Palestinians, he asserted.
"There must be two States-
one Israeli, one Palestinian.
"This, though, will not solve
the conflict between us. Look at
South Africa. There is no war
but there is conflict. But it would
mean that any Israeli could settle
in Palestine and any Palestinian
in Israel. Yaser Arafat is not a
prophet and he has to look after
the present generation.
"We cannot keep on living in
refugee camps. Let the Israelis
go back to the pre-1967 frontiers,
leave Gaza and the West Bank.
When they withdraw, this will b^
the first step to our two peoples
living in harmony."
I ASKED him whether the Is
raclis were not justified in fear-
ing that such a State would form
a spearhead aimed at the heart
of Israel. I also drew his atten
tion to an editorial in the PLO's
own organ, Falastin ath-Thawrath,
which as recently as February
spoke of the "continuous struggle
to liberate all Palestinian soil so
that the Palestinian people may
exercise their full right to self-
determination over the entire
territory and to set up a demo-
cratic Palestinian State."
Hammami responded quickly:
"This is not an accurate transla-
tion. We recognize that a new
Israeli people has been created.
Arab State would draw out the
poison of the hatred between us.
"I am a Palestinian and I can
tell you it will not, however,
bring an end to the conflict. Some
Palestinians say that Yasser
Arafat is betraying the Palestin-
ians. Arafat is in the majority
and they are willing to make a
"SOME Palestinians would like
to treat all Israelis as Beigms
and Tamirs. 1 don't accept this
view But I acceot the criticism
of President Sadat. He should
not have wi!drawr. Ml troops so
When I pressed him about the
discrepancies in PLO statement!
about making peace with Israel,
Hammami appeared for the first
time to become annoyed.
We arc a democratic move-
ment, and everyone gets a say.
In the end the majority view is
accepted. So it will be now.
"Fublic opinion in Israel wants
peace. We also want peace with
justice. There is no point in
Golda Meir's saying there is no
Palestinian people. Let the Is-
raelis make a gesture. I am sure
Yasser Arafat will do the same.
Don't smile. We are a poor
people. We would rather have
tractors than Migs. We would
rather not spend the next 25
years in camps. But you cannot

JNF Buying Up Land
From Arab Owners
Near Jerusalem
director general of the Jewish
National Fund disclosed to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the JNF is and has been buying
land from Arab owners on the
administered territories near Je-
rusalem and is assisting individ-
ual Jews "who wish to buy land"
According to Shimon Ben-She-
mesh, this activity of the Land
Reclamation and Development
Agency is independent of any
Cabinet resolutions and is under-
taken in the knowledge that some
of the land could concern*!y be
returned to Jordan tr to Pal-
estinians is the framework of
a final peace settlement.
ASKED WHAT would happen
in that eventuality, Bn-Shemesh
replied that "exchange bargains
will then take place.''
He indicated that some of the
Arab owners want to sell their
lands precisely because they
think it will be returned to them
some day as a result of a politi-
cal settlement.
He said the JNF purchases
were mainly in the regions near
Bethlehem and Ramallah occu-
pied by Israel in the 1987 Six-
Day War.
HE STRESSED that these pur-
chases have nothing to do with
possible annexation of the areas.
He pointed out that the JNF,
which was founded by the World
Zionist Organization in 1901. is
duty-bound to buy land for the
Jewish people wherever it can do
He said that in addition to the
JNF, some Israeli citizens and
private companies are interested
in land purchases around Jeru-
BEN SIIKMESH also spoke of
the JNF's land rehabilitation and
afforestation activities through-
out Israel which, he emphasizes,
were conducted in dose contact
with the Knesset's Ecology Com-
He said that 89 parks and pub-
lie playground* would be opened
to the public this spring, a num-
ber he maintained was far from
the minimum needed. He said
the JNF budget for the next fis-
cal year allocates large sums for
public recreational areas.
He said Out last year, about
a half million Israelis spent their
Passover and Independence Day

EVEN THE young generation
in the Diaspora, which has not
generally been raised on Jewish
values, was suddenly aroused
from its lethargy, and when the
war was at its height many de-
cided to leave their occupations
and businesses and come to Is-
rael as volunteers in order to
offer their assistance wherever
it should be needed.
Scores of thousands of letters
of encouragement were address-
ed by Jewish children in the
Diaspora to soldiers in the Is-
rael Defense Forces. These were
warm expressions of identifica-
tion by children who wished to
convey their sentiments for Is-
rael and their feelings of belong-
ing in the only way they could.
But also among Israelis a new
feeling was engendered. Senti-
ments that had previously been
written and talked about now
became part and parcel of Is-
raeli being a feeling that Is-
rael's only true and faithful alb-
is the Jewish people.

subject which had to be explain-

of Jewish unity and identifica-

Ben Gurion, Israel's Most Vital Force,
Now Gathered Unto His Ancient Fathers
TtfONTHS HAVE passed since
11 he left the land of the liv-
ing, but it is still difficult to ac-
cept his passing.
He was "gathered unto his fa-
thers," to use the Biblical phrase,
at a ripe old age but almost to
the end he was the most vital of
men, the most dynamic of our
leaders brimming with phys-
ical and intellectual vigor, with a
surging passion, a thirst for ac-
tion, an urge for achievement
and an irrepressible zest for
struggle and combat.
WE HAD long known him as
the outstanding leader of Labor
Zionism. But he often rose above
the party he had helped to cre-
ate, transcending lines of demar-
cation and division by placing the
Zionist ideal and the national in-
terest above and beyond all other
He was certainly a socialist,
but if and when the ideals seem-
ed to conflict, his Zionism would
inevitably rise above his social-
ism and determine his course of
He will, of course, be forever
remembered for his historic role
in the fateful days of 1948. No
one could claim with greater jus-
tice the title of the founder of
the Jewish State. But David Ben-
Gurion was not only its founder;
he was also its progenitor.
career there were few aspects of
the Zionist revolution which es-
caped his pervasive influence and
the impact of his personality.
Above all, he was the exponent
and personification of that "ac-
tivist" policy which led the Yish-
uv and the Zionist movement to
their most hazardous adventures
and greatest triumphs.
A striking feature of his ex-
traordinary career was his capac-
ity to rise above his earlier limi-
tations and reveal himself not
only as the leader of a party or
section, but as the leader of his
When he thought it necessary
he did not hesitate to abandon a
position no longer tenable, and
adopt a new position in response
to altered circumstances.
HIS WAS the authentic voice
of Israel calling out to the scat-
tered fragments of his race and
speaking in assured accents,
peremptorily to the political
leaders and statesmen of the
world insisting on freedom,
security and independence for his
own people.
Those of us who were close to
him and knew him intimately,
could not fail to be struck by the
elemental power of his tempes-
tuous character. His strong will
often erupted with volcanic force,
converting doubters and sweep-
ing more timid souls along with
him by his dauntless spirit.
The former president of Is-
rael. Zalman Shazar, speaking
about Ben-Gurion, once said:
"He does not walk on paved or
unpaved roads; he walks on
NEITHER IN the Zionist

heiven-ordained elite, rising
above ordinary men and women,
will always stand the imposing
figure of David Ben-Gurion.
He led us with indomitable
courage, overcoming fears and
hesitations. He shed about him
an incandescent light often too
bright for many to accept.
At the decisive moment, he
reached for the stars, sought the
crown of sovereignty and placed
it proudly on the head of our
grateful people, causing it to rise
transformed and resplendent,
clothed with real dignity.
BUT HE NOT only proclaimed
Israel's independence, he firmly
established the State, consoli-
dated its forces and organized
its complicated administration.
Steeped ai.d engrossed as he was
in the pressing daily tasks, he
never lost but retained through-
out his instinct for eternity.
He was not only the leader of
his generation but of future gen-
erations yet unborn.
His identification with the
State of Israel was so deep, so
complete and overpowering that
he saw little that was good or
precious in the Diaspora.
Indeed, in his zeal he was in-
clined to negate the whole long
history of Jewish life in the
Diaspora and all the precious
values it had created.
HE SAW the Diaspora exist-
ence as a calamity, which it was,
but also considered it barren
and sterile, which it was not.
In his view Jewish history con-
sisted of two ennobling parts:
the ancient period of independ-
ence and sovereignty ending in
the destruction of Jerusalem
and the modern period with its
restoration of Jewish sovereignty.
Between these two in his mind
there stretched the great, track-
less desert of exile and disper-
sion. Many of us diifeied with
I|it perhaps it was this rather
extreme view of our history
depicted in his mind in sharp
outline that gave him the al-
most superhuman strength and
power to carry on.
DESPITE SUCH differences, I
always felt a sense of nearness
or closeness to him, for the range
and power of his personality and
his radiating influence *new no
geographical boundaries, no lo-
cal or parochial limitations.
He often seemed to fill the
challenged place at the center of
the Zionist staoe.
Now he has gone to his eter-
nal rest, and we mourn his de-
parture. But the moment of
mourning is also mingled with
another compensating feeling:
the consciousness of our per-
manent enrichment.
He will always be a shining
light in moments of darkness and
doubt, leading us on to vision-
of greatness and deeds of valor
Therefore, David Ben-Guriou
is not gone: he lives on on;
of our unforgettable heroes, for-
ever one of our immortals.

Neumann's memorial address

Session of the Zionist General
Council in Jerusalem in Febru-

There Won't be Much Dancing in the Street This Year
AS WE approach Independence
** Day this year. Israels 26t.i,
I keep thinking back to previous
years, to previous celebrations, to
tne early mart when we ecstat-
ically danced in the streets, when
we went to the parades, eagerly
and exhaust i' ::ng the traf-

site.-, when cur mood and activ-

and fun.
Yet. each year the extravagant
emphasis on celebrating, on en-
tertainment, on having fun for
fun's sake began to disturb, b^-
gan to irritate those of us who
felt we were beginning to lose
sight of the essence of the day,
ot the reason for its existence.
EACH YEAR, as we visited the
large entertainment stands erpct-

The chain reaction set in motion by the explosion
of the Yom Kippur War has not yet exhausted
itself. The Agranat inquiry's interim report with
its disclosures of slackness in the Israeli Army's
command, rigidity of thought and men who are
blind to the facts in front of them, can only
stoke the flames of dissent. Yoram Kessel sent

Coolly regarded, the protesters
do not appear to represent a
direct threat to the established

threat to the old guard lies is in
the discontent and inner erosion
of the Labor Partv itself.
What the protest of the young

Argentina's Zionists are Complaining

The World Zionist Organization
and the Jewish Agency in Jeru-

sharp criticism from local Zionist
and Jewish leaders here who say
their methods are obsolete, their
approach too partisan and their
propaganda uneffective against
the anti-Zionist offensives from
both left and right
Hoped for changes failed to

Latin American Zionist Federa
tions are drifting into lethargy
and disappointment, a well-placed
local Zionist source told the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency this week.
THE SOURCE said bluntly that
proclaiming "Aliya Month" here
in May and sending over the head
of the Jewish Agency's Immigra-
tion Department, Gen. Uzi N'arkis,
is not likely to produce a single
immigrant and Is a waste of
"Speeches don't move those
who have not already decided on
aliya, and the others just don't
go to listen to speeches." the
source said.
One of the most serious com-
plaints is the lack of communica
tion between the Zionist Execu-
t;v in Terusalom and th ter-
ritorial Federations on one hand,
and between the different parties
comprising the Zionist Federa-
tions in each country on the
other, the source said.
Jerusalem still dispatches
"shlichim" (emissaries) who du
plicate each other and, fails to
coordinate with the World Jew
ish Congress, or even with Israeli
authorities in Latin America, on
information and youth activities,
! e said.
THE ZIONIST movement has
shown only inertia and incapacity
to act against the propaganda of-
fensive from left and right that
distorts th" image of Zionism and
of Israel, the source told the JTA.
He said it was ab-urd to be-
lieve that "Aliya Month" will
bring new immigrants or attract
youth who are either indifferent
or are enrolled in movements
that are crudelv anti-Israel.
THE ZIONIST movement's bu-
reaucratic stereotypes and intell-
ectual parochialism only worsen
the situation as they repel the
Jewish masses who expect truth
and sincerity, not doctrinaire
speeches, he said.
dling in numbers since the prin-
ciple that "Zionists must go to
Israel and preach with their ex-
ample" inhibits them from oc-
cupying posts in the Local Fede-
rations, the source said.
Finally, he said, pioneerism
and aliya are not estimulated
through mass meetings, visits by
important Israelis or publicity ex-
"Zionist ideology can not be
sold over the counter" but is a
function of the educational proc-
ess, for the faults of which "we
are all to blame," the source said.
He said education must have
priority before aliya and asked
"if people go to Israel on a non-
catastrophe, voluntary and even
romantic basis, can the Israeli
authorities receive them without
shaking their faith and avoii"
their frustration and return?"
