Differs With Peres
TEL AVIV (JTA) French Ambassador Jean Hurly gave an
account of the events in Maalot which differs sharpiy with the offi-
cial version given by Information Minister Shimon Peres at a news
conference and by Premier Golda Mcir in her radio and television
The Frencn envoy's account,
contained in an interview pub-
lished in Yediot Achronot May
16, was corroborated in part by
a Foreign Ministry document re-
leased on May 15 containing a
chronological summary of the
diplomatic contacts aimed at sav-
ing the Maalot hostages.

official Israeli version related to
the ambassador's role in dealings
with the terrorists and a mysteri-
ous code word with which the
ambassador was to identify him-
self to the terrorists which never
The Foreign Ministry docu-
ment, however, confirmed the
role assigned to the Rumanian
Ambassador as stated in the gov-

Hurly told Yediot Achronot
that he was not supposed to han-

ists but to serve as their hostage

Israeli Jets Launching
Raids on Terror Sites
TEL AVIV(JTA)Israeli Air
Force jets attacked terrorist
strongholds in >3Uthern Lebanon
on May 16. The attacks were car-
ried out in two wavesand seven
target areas were hit. Israel's
Chief of Staff. Lt. Gen. Modechai
Gur. said the targets included
concentrations of El Fatah head-
quarters: headquarters, workshops
and training areas of the Popular
Front for the Liberation of Pales-
tine; the PFLP-General Command
and the Popular Democratic Front
for the Liberation of Palestine.
THE TWO latter organizations
were directly responsible for the
terrorist massacre at Maalot. Gur
told newsmen that the bombing
and strafing raids could be con-
sidered retaliation for the Maalot
outrage, though he noted that Is-
raeli warpianes had been pound-
ing terrorist targets in southeast-
ern Lebanon before the Maalot
He hinted at further retaliatory
acts. (Reports from Beirut claim-
ed that Israeli jets bombed and
machinegunned Palestinian refu-

severely damaged residential
blocks. Beirut claimed that civil-
ian casualties were high. Accord-
ing to one source in Lebanon, as
many as 100 were killed or
wounded. The Beirut report said
anti-aircraft fire was directed
against the Israeli raiders.)

its aircraft returned safely to

York Times reported here
Tuesday that Nayef Hawat-

massacre on Israeli leaders
"who played with the fate of
90 hostages."
Hawatmeh. leader of the
guerrilla force who attacked
the school, said that the
guerrillas would never have
killed any of the children if
only the Israelis freed the
prisoners being held in Is-
rael for terrorist activity.
"WE TOLD the Rumanian
foreign minister that we
would give the code word
for release of the hostages
as soon as we had word that
the airplane carrying the
prisoners we wanted releas-
ed had entered Cyprus air-
space," Hawatmeh said.
Because Israel attacked
the school and killed the
terrorists, 27 children were
killed and 70 injured.
"This attitude of the Is-
raeli generals is the summit
of unreasonableness," Ha-
watmeh said.

Maalot Changes the Picture
The sparoJjng viosence as Ik* Middle East cause far
concern particularly bow thai A* Syrian* seen* to be join-
ing the Egyptians in setting tie stage for peace talks.
What w-Jl presusicbiy grow oat of an Israeli-Arab
meeting m Geneva, zi Least that is what Secretary of State
Henry Kssiacer seems to have been working for. is some
sort of accord by which the Arabs are prepared finally to
accept the national integrity of Israel lex stui-to-be nego-
tated toeritaria! concessions tram the Israelis.
But the Maalot massacre is an Arab statement that
whoever d?veiops in Geneva will be unacceptable. The
terrorists are say-jig that any stale-to-state iij-,ir^r,n be-
tween Israel on the one hand and the Egyptians and Syr-
ians on the other are beside the point.
Israel's Being Inadmissible
What the terrorists are saying is that bo discussions
no negotiations ere possible until there is a settlement or
the Tilllinn si problem."
Essentially, that means the dissolution or Israel be-
cause the Palestinian problem is no longer, in Arab par-
lance, a return of the West Bank to Jordan.
Is Arab parlance, it is the establishment or a Pales-
tinian state whose spokesmen, the terrorists, have al-
ready set themselves up not only a* the enemies of Israel
bat of Jordan, as well a Palestinian state within whose
hegemony a Jewish state is frankly being declared im-
possible, no less **"" inrrrrnaisriblr. to them.
All of which is especially significant because from
the foregoing on* would be inclined to conclude that the
Egyptians and the Syrians cm suddenly quite amenable
to peace, if only the terrorists could be convinced that die
Israel-Arab war is finally ending.
We See Geneva a Joke
Bat Egypt's Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmi put it so
succinctly last week that we could not do a better job of
demonstrating the folly of such a conclusion.
The severity of the Maalot massacre speaks for itself.
The use of children as hostages is reprehensible beyond
the need to discuss it. The Israeli strike at terrorist en-
campments in Lebanon is something the terrorists surely
knew they would be calling down upon themselves in
Still. Fahmi did what every Arab and every Arab
camp follower is doing these days and sadly, reoalliaa
the aftermath of the Kiryat Shemona retaliatory strike, one
must here include the U.S.A.
Ignoring the provocation. Fahmi addressed himself to
Israel's outraged response, calling it an act of 'flagrant
aggression on the civilian population 'which; can
only have the gravest consequences" on Israel.
"The Arab world cannot stand idle before this terror-
ism." he declared, while saying nothing about the Arab
terrorist murder of children at Maalot.
What Henry Kissinger is doing ferrying back and forth
between Jerusalem and Damascus seems harder and
harder to understand. And looking into the future, we see
Geneva as a joke.
Dealing With Serpents
We are. of course, unhappy about the Soviet handling
of American tourists from South Florida on a dental con-
vention in Russia.
But what, we would like to know, were Jews doing on
a convention in the Soviet Union anyway?
What were Jews doing bringing their money and their
substance to a nation desperately searching for respect-
ability in the west?
Why should Jews want to add to Soviet respectability
under ANY circumstances, whether through tourism or
any other way?
As we say, we artt unhappy that they were man-
handled. But dealing with serpents always lays one open
to snake bite.

Debate Over Justice of Existence of Israel Among Blacks
|Has a Perplexing Meaning Today
bate over the relationship be-
tween black people and the State
of Israel is a perplexing and
troublesome phenomenon.
For one would think that the
historic bonds which link blacks
to Jews the common heritage
of discrimination and oppression,
the cooperation during the pio-
test campaigns of the civil rights
movement, and the fact that
blacks and Jews occupy pivotal
roles within the liberal coalition
would be sufficiently powerful
and enduring to preclude serious
6ittenvrp% over Israel's fate.
ADJHvD TO THIS is Israels
democratic and egalitarian char-
acter, which stands in marked
contrast To the cinservatism and
authoritarianism of the Arab ie-
Yet. one cannot dismiss the
existence of a controversy even
if, as I believe to be the case
here, its relevance and magnitude
are of questionable dimension.
Since her establishment 25
years ago. Israel has enjoyed a
remarkable love! of support from
the leadership of the black com-
munity, including elected offi-
cials, civil rights leaders, and
church and labor figures.
Nor is there any significant
evidence to suggest that this sup-
port diminished during the mo3t
recent outbreak of fighting Qu
the contrary. Shortlv after the
Bayard Rustin, distinguished Black leader, is
the author of this column on "American Negroes
and Israel," which first appeared in the April

no validity to the Israeli cause,
at least sofar as blacks are con-
cerned, ^jt that black politicians,
by supporting Israel, are placing
the wishes of American Jews
above their own sense of what is
right and wrong.
To express such strong doubt?
about the principles of black
elected officials is to tread on
dangerous territory. One might as
easily ask whether the voting rec-
ords of Senators Javits and Ribi-
coff, bjth of which are impec-
cably pro-civil rights, reflect
nothing more than a bowing to
black "aspirations."
Only the most cynical or the
most foolish would deny that
Javits and Ribicoff have demon-
strated an abiding, personal com-
mitment to racial equality during
their public careers. It takes
equal cynicism to impugn the mo-
tives of black elected oificials, as
Browne and others have done.
ISRAEL'S BLACK criticis have
misrepresented Israel's policy to-
wards black African nations. The
suggestion, for example, that Is-
rael has systematically support-
ed and aided Portugal against the
liberation forces in its African
colonies is simply not true.
Israel has in fact been a con-
sistent supporter of the freedom
movements in Angola and Mo-
zambique and has demons!; ati d

colonialiit votes in the United

depth the nature of Arab and Is-

the realities of the Arab social
And to assert that there are
historic ties of brotherhood link-

Askew in Statement on Maalot;
Mournful Prayers Held Here
In immediate response to the
Maalot massacre, Florida Gov.
Reubin Askew issued a statement
last Friday declaring:
"At a time when genuine ef-
forts are being made to bring
disengagement on the battlefield
and lasting peace throughout the
Middle East, the world can only
be shocked and outraged at the
senseless killing and wounding
of children at Maalot."
FRANK i. MAGRATH, direc-
tor of the Florida Region of the
National Conference of Chris-

observing that "The members of

tion, have given implied if not

ble acts."

weekend services in Greater Mi-

"WE REQUEST that all chil-
dren and teen-agers attend these
services to link them to the inno-

Rabbi Berger also called on

Jewish Terrorist Organization
bi Meir Kahane, founder of the
Jewish Defense League, called
for the creation of a worldwide
Jewish terrorist organization with
the clandestine backing of the
Israeli government to counter
Arab terrorist groups and exact
vengeance for their acts.
Kahane, who announced re-
cently that he was resigning as
chairman of the JDL. made his
proposals on the site of the for-
mer Arab village of Deir Yassin

its inhabitants by the Irgun

Kahane's "solution" to the
problem of Arab terrorism was,
he stated, to imitate the Arab
terrorists act for act, shooting
hostages and bringing counter-
terror to Arab civilians in their
own countries.
In addition, "in each case of
Arab terror against Jews, 1.000
Arab families in the occupied
territories shall be expelled,"
Kahane said.
He also reiterated his plan to
encourage the emigration of Is-
raeli Arabs by offering them
cash and jobs in other countries.
ACCORDING TO Kahane, the
Israeli government should aid the
Jewish terrorist movement while
denying cny connection with it,
"just as Arab governments do."
Kahane said he didn't know if
any such Jewish terror organiza-
tion was in the making but of-
fered his assistance if it was.
He said he would not head
such an organization because 'I
have enough trouble as it is."

"Family, Cookbook" produced by the Children's Division of the
Jewish Community Center of Cleveland. This is a rather novel
.#ky of making a favorite cake.
7 egg yelks
1 cup sugar
Mr tsp. salt
r cup mashed bananas
% cup sifted potato starch
1 cup coarsely
chopped walnuts
7 egg whites, stiffly beaten
2 whole sliced bananas
Cooked vanilla pudding
Beat the egg yolks until thick. Add the sugar and salt and
beat until fluffy and lemon colored. Stir in the bananas and
potato starch, then the walnuts. Fold in the egg whites. Pour
into two greased 9-inch layer cake pans. Bake in a 350-degree
oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool
en a cake rack. Spread the pudding and sliced bananas on one
layer and cover with the other. Serves 6-8.
Once again we pass along to you information and a sample
recipe from one of the many hundreds of fine organizational
cookbooks put out by Jewish women across the country.
The recipe this week comes from "The Proverbial Cook
Book" published by the Springfield. N.J., Hadassah organization.
It is a good all-around book containing some 300 tested recipes
plus useful notes pertaining to Jewish holidays, cooking hints,
substitutions and equivalents. To receive a copy of the book send
$3.85 to Springfield Hadassah, 170 Hillside Ave., Springfield, N.J.

Laurence Goodman.

.This may be cooked well in advance and frozen, but sour
crejm should not be added until it is thawed and heated in a
double boiler on serving day. This may be kept warm in a chaf-
ing-dish throughout your cocktail hour.

1 stick margarine
1 cup firmly packed brown
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons liquid non-dairy

grees for about 10 minutes.
Now that Passover is over, what is more natural than to
turn one.'s thoughts to challah. that golden, delicious bread which
we enjoy on Sabbaths and holidays. The following recipe for no-
knead challah was given to me a couple of years ago by a friend-
Mrs. Leon Bergman of Manhattan, who swears that it is the easiest
recipe for challah that she's ever come across. Hurry and make
it before the hot days of summer come upon us.
Mix following ingredients and let stand:

1 tsp. salt 2 pkgs. dry yeast
Put 8 cups flour (do not sift) in a large mixing bowl and
make a well. In well put the following:
3 eggs 2 cups warm water
x* cup sugar 1 tbsp. salt
'i cup oil 4 cup raisins (optional)
Add the items in Step One to those in Step Two. Mix to
gether with wooden spoon until its a sticky blob. Set aside for
three hours. Every half hour mix a couple of times with spoon
(do not cover).
Wet counter top or formica table top. Put down wax paper.
Sprinkle liberally with flour. Divide dough into three sections.
Each one is a challah. Grease three loaf pans with oil. Do
anything you want with doughbraid or just put as is into pans.

Real Estate Commission Text's
Language Called 'Prejudicial'
The Florida Regional Office of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has charged the
Florida Real Estate Commission
with undermining support among
realtors for equal opportunity in
housing through the "prejudicial
language" on the subject of dis-
crimination in the Commission's
official Handbook.
Noting the Commission's Flor-
:da Real Estate Handbook is the
primary guide for realtors on
real estate regulations and busi-
ness practices, and is the requir-
ed text for persons studying to
pass the test to become licensed
realtors. Richard Essen, vice
chairman of the ADL's Execu-
tive Committee said, "We are
shocked to find the opening sen-
tence of the Handbook's section
on discrimination begins as fol-
" 'The so-called question of
discrimination on account of
nationality, race, color and
religion has taken up a great
deal of time and attention of
politicians, agitators and
other* during the last few
years, and sometimes In-
trudes itself into the deal-
ings of real estate brokers'."
Essen stated that the remain-
der of this section on discrimina-
tion is filled with language which
"clearly denigrates the moral
and ethical principles which un-
derlie our nation's civil rights
laws." He added, "It is devoid of
any positive reference to real-
tors' responsibility to ensure
equal access to housing without
regard to religious, racial or
ethnic considerations."
Arthur Teitelbaum. director of
ADL's Florida office, said the
Handbook is "inaccurate and mis-
leading" on the matter of Fed-
eral housing laws and court de-
"The Handbook tells realtors
that religious and racial discri-
mination in housing is permis-
sible under some conditions
when, in fact, the U.S. Supreme
Court, in a 1968 decision, makes
housing discrimination illegal
under any circumstances," Teitel-
baum continued.
"The Commission has failed in
its responsibility to realtors to
provide accurate guidance on the
substance of relevant Federal
civil rights laws and. therefore,
has endangered realtors by ex-
posing them to Federal and pri-
vate litigation and Federal ad-
ministrative action."
In a letter to James E. Hol-
lenbeck, Jr., chairman of the
Real Estate Commission, the
ADL called for the immediate
revision of the Handbook's sub-
stance and tone, to conform with
both the letter and spirit of
Federal law and the public policy
of the State of Florida.
The League's spokesman said
the contents of the Handbook
came to its attention during the
course of one of its current in-
vestigations of housing discrimi-
nation in Florida against a per-
son of the Jewish faith.
In view of the fact that light-
ing is done today by electrici-
ty, why is it still required ro
light Sabbath candles of wax?
Certainly, if there are no wax
candies available, most rabbinic
authorities would permit making
the blessing over electric lights.
Actually most authorities permit
using electric lights tor Sabbath
candles. However, perhaps for
two reasons, we still use candles.
First, there are some authori-
ties who do not consider electric
lights adequate for lighting Sab-
bath candles. Some of these
claim that a power shortage or
blown fuse may cast the home
into darkness. In the case of
recent power failures, candles
have indeed proved themselves
to be more reliable.
Second, since we are so used
to an abundance of electric
lights, without lighting the ta-
pers one would not easily recog-
nize the presence of the Sabbath
in the home. The Sabbath can-
dles, thus, besides giving light,
underscore the presence of the

that the flickering light of the
candle is more representative of
human life compared to the
seemingly lifeless presence of
the electric light.

Debate Over Justice of Existence of Israel Among Blacks
Costumed from Page 5
Fi*nk.:n. the distiiifcu.shed black
historian, has noted:
"When the Mohammedans in-
vaded Africa, they contributed
peat.y to the development of the
institution of Negro slavery by
nTffg Negro women for their
harems and Negro men for mili-
tary and menial service.
"By purchase as well as by con-
quest, the Moslems recruited Ne-
gro slaves and shipped them off
to Arabia. Persia, or some other
land of Llam .
"Loag before the extensive de-
velopment of the slave trade in
'.he hands of the Europeans,
many of the basic practices of the
international slave trade had al-
ready been established."
IT IS TRUE, of course, that the
slave trade as practiced by the
Mosiems was not as severe or ex-
tensive an institution as it later
became under the Europeans. A
much more serious indictment of
the attitudes of Arab society is
its continued tolerance for the
slave trade at a time when the
i c i-t of humanity has condemned
and abandoned the practice. The
Anti-Slavery Society, headquar-
tered :n London, an organization
commuted to the eradication of
slavery around the world, reports
that Arab nations are the most
flagrant violators of the 1956
fJBftaH Nations Convention on
the Abolition of Slavery.
In Saudi Arabia alone there are
500.000 person* living in slavery
or enforced bondage, according
to Society estimates, and slavery
is known to exist in a number of
other Arab lands, incjadjug Ku-
wait. Oman and Muscat, Yemen,
Algeria, and Lebanon.
The pattern of modern slavery,
according to journalist Noel
Mostert, "is the age-old one. The
source is still mainly Africa, the
essential difference being that
the routes of the slave traders
run eastward instead of west-
ONE OF THE most disturbing
aspect? of modern slavery is that
despite its almost universal con-
demnation and the sanctions of
the United Nations, it has under-
gone a steady increase during the
past 25 years, a period which co-
incides with the era of growing
wealth for the oil sheikdoms of
the Persian Gulf.
The Anti-Slavery Society be-
lieves that chattel slavery has in-
creased threefold since 1947, and
it a-cribes the increase to the
giowing affluence of the oil na-
The world reaction to the
phenomenon of modern slavery is
a t'xtbook case of how the dic-
tates of reaipalitik drown out the
cries of the oppressed. The
United Nations, the only agency

icing mechanism, has treated the
slavery question with the utmost

Moslem oppression of non-Mos-

bombing missions in which the
principal targets were inhabited

In the Sudan, the Moslem north

paign of terror against the black
pagans and Christians of the
The Sudanese civil war was
provoked by the efforts of the
Moslems to force their language,
religion, and culture on the non-
Moslem blacks. Between 500.000
and 1.000.000 Sudanese were
slain in the conflict; countless
others, after watching their vil-
lages burn, fled to the bush or
sought sanctuary in neighboring
THE SUDANESE government
was able to conduct its military
campaigns because of a $5,500.-
000 gift from Kuwait, and be-
cause of arms shipments from
Algeria, Egypt, and the Soviet
Union. Thus we had an example
of Arab unity in which black peo-
ple, not Jew*, were the victims.
For tbeif-part. African nations
are aware of the long history of
conflict between Arab and black;
they recoenize that forming alli-
ances with the Arabs is a matter
of pragmatic politics, not the re-
sult of "brotherhood."
African leaders, moreover, do
not share the srntiments of black
nationalists here who look on Is-
rael as imperialist or racist. Until
the Yom Kippur War. African
nations enjoyea close and often
beneficial relations with Israel,
which for years had provided aid
and technical advice that was of
considerable value to states just
emerging from colonialisms

News Media Claim Support
Of Nixon (Expletive Deletes)
NEW YORKfJTA)Two news media claimed ovei Che week-
end to have had corroboration from reliable sources of reports that
President Nixon used anti-Semitic slurs and other ethnic epithets
during private conversation- with aides in February and March. 1973.
The New York Times said the epithet. "Jew boy." was used sev-
eral by Nixon in taped conversations with John W. Dean on
Feb 28 and Mar. 20. and that Nixon also referred to "those Jews"
in the UP. Attorney's Office in Washington and accused Jews in
government of leaking material to Jewish liberals" in the media.
CBS-TV news broadcast a report that anti-Semitic remarks by
President Nixon were among comments deleted from transcriptions
of his taped Watergate conversations.
The report was by CBS correspondent Fred Graham who quoted
an "authoritative source" as saying that Nixon referred to Daniel
Eflsberg a* a "Jew boy." CBS deleted the Graham report from sub-
sequent newscasts.
According to CBS officials, it was withdrawn after White House
Chief of Staff Alexander Haig told the network that special Water-
gate prosecutor Leon Jaworski had said the tapes did not contain
what Graham said they had.
The source, according to the
Times, said Nixon talked about
"stopping those Jews over in the
U.S. Attorney's Office" and spe-
cifically recalled a complaint by
Nixon "about the difficulty of
sitting down there with a bunch
of Jews'."
According to the Times. Nixon
referred to Judge John J. Sirica,
former Chief Judge of the U.S.
District Court in Washington, as
"that wop."

Warsaw Ghetto Wall
LONDONiJTA)The Polish Jewish Ex-Sorvicemens .As-
sociation has sent a protest to the Polish Government in W.-.r-
saw against the planned demolition of the last standing sec; en
of the old Warsaw Ghetto wall.
The section of wall is a monument to the Warsaw Ghetto
of 1943 and the Jews who died in it.
SIMON FRISNER. association chairman, told the Jewish T

tion sent through the Polish Ambassador in London.
Israeii Deputy Premier Yigal Allon told the Knesset in Jeru-
salem before leaving on a visit to London last week that the
Israeli government was aware of reports that the Warsaw Muni-
cipal Council planned to pull down the wall
IF THIS happens it will be "a blow against history, at I
culture and against Jewry," Al.on said.
Joel Gang, a journalist and writer, told the JTA that h'

tion has disclosed that oil com-

was being contributed or to iden-

The disclosure was made by
John P. Richardson, president of
the American Near East Refugee
Aid (ANERA) during a hearing
before a House Foreign Aff
subcommittee which began hold-
ing a series of hearings last fall
on the international protection of
human rights and U.S. policy to-
ward countries where gross vio-
lations have occurred.
RICHARDSON, long identified
with pro-Arab activities here, was
among four witnesses who
charged that the Israeli occupa
tion authorities in the West Bank
and the Gaza Strip were violating
Arab civilian rights.
The other three witnesses, who
made similar charges, were Dr.
Israel Shahk, professor of or-
ganic chemistry at Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem and chair

The Soviets would have those

But the Moscow leaders have
apparently decided they cannot

Thus the balance in Damascus
more and more favors President

ident Hafez Assad.
THESE ARE the facts that lie
behind the mysterious but bland

tary Kissinger's two meetings
with the Soviet foreign minister,

tween the and the Is-

as the difference between five

He said he was "shocked and
outraged to learn of the attack
by fedayeen terrorists against a
teen-age campsite in Maalot and
against other innocent civilians
in the same area.
"OUR HEARTS go out to the

Kissinger said. His statement was

sador-at-large Robert J. McClos-
key, a member of Kissinger's en-

gagement agreement.
U.S. Wants War Claims
On E. Germany Negotiated
The United States will not "nor-
malize" relations with East Ger-
many until that country commits
itself to negotiate claims against
it for the depredations of the
Nazi regime, according to Sen.
Jacob K. Javits (R.. NY).
The State Department. Javits
said, has declared in a letter to
him that it will seek from the
German Democratic Republic
(East Germany) "a firm and de-
tailed advance commitment to
negotiate a claims agreement
soon after the establishment of
diplomatic relations," between
the two countries.
JAVITS ALSO said the letter
had "emphasized" that "only
when such a commitment is ob-
tained will we proceed to nor-
malize relations with the G.D.R."
At the State Department fol-
lowing Javits' disclosure, the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency was
informed that the U.S. govern-
ment's Foreign Claims Settle-
ment Commission would conduct
registration program to get
claims formally registered which
has not yet been done in the
absence of U.S.-East German
diplomatic relations.
A Department authority said
that the program would include
advertising in American newspa-
pers and that "all interested or-
ganizations would be advised" on
registration of claims.
HE SAID that individuals have
written to the State Department
over the years about material
losses they have incurred as a
result of the works of the Nazis.
These writings, he said, are
maintained at the Department,
but he cautioned they cannot be
considered formal claims.
Javits said that in a letter to
Secretary' of State Henry A. Kis-
singer he had urged that out-
standing war claims be settled
before the United States recog-
nized East Germany.
"In view of the oppressive na-
ture of the G.D.R. regime and
the presence in its governmental
structure of former Nazis," Javits
wrote, "I do not believe our gov-
ernment should be a party to the
obvious efforts by the G.D.R. to
sidestep its responsibilities re-
specting actions and develop-
ments of Germany during the in-

that "the soundest way of pro-
ceeding" was to obtain East Ger-
many's commitment on negotia-

for a claims settlement as an in-

"Violence such as this will
serve no cause but to undermine
the prospects for peace in this
area. We further believe that it
is time for all responsible gov-
ernments to make clear that
whatever their political differ-
once, such inhuman acts must
be severely condemned and
those who earn- them out dealt
with severely."
McCloskey was asked by news-
men if the events caused second
thoughts about U.S. support for
the Security Council resolution
condemning Israel's April 12
commando raid into Lebanon fol-
lowing the Kiryat Shemona mas-
sacre on April 11.
McCloskey replied, "It is al-
ways the intention and desire of
the United States to vote on the
merits and no one incident may
be the same as the other."
HE ADDED that he would "not
want to anticipate a vote. I think
the sense of outrage is reflected
in the Secretary's statement."

demned the terrorist attack in

THE POPE'S message, issued
May 15, added that the Pontiff
was "particularly concerned"
about the fate of the hostages
and called on Msgr. Laghi to in-
form the Israeli authorities and
through them, the families of the
children, of his "participation in
their anguish and the assurance
of his prayers to the Most High."

It is not sure that he will
bridge the gap, but it seems in-
creasingly likely.
FOR ONE thing, the American
secretary of state, incredibly
enough, is now biing simulta-
neously treated as an unofficial
member of the Israeli cabinet
and the Egyptian cabinet, and he
is also being more and more
treated as a semi-member of the
Syrian cabinet?11
This strange.iersonal standing
he ha& now attained is the source
of the impelling need for his
highly personal diplomacy.
For another thing, Dr. Kissin-
ger has been forehanded. He aot
only included in the recent for-
eign aid bill $250 million for
Egypt, which got a whisper of
HE ALSO included above $200
million for King Hussein of Jor-
dan, which no one noticed, plus
an unearmarked, wholly unno-
ticed additional $100 million.
This money is really destined for
Syria if all goes well.
These remarkable aid appro-
priations for three Arab states
got so little notice because they
were never blocked by Israel's
friends in the Senate and House.
That alone should give you a
somewhat better idea of the vast
extent of the transformation in
the making.

that the mistreatment of Jew- at
the world games will be repeated
at the 1980 Olympiad if it is held
in Moscow.
In recent news stories. Lord
Killanin has been reported as
dismissing the seriousness of the
harassment of Jews at the World
University Games. At the same
time, he has indicated that the
committee's investigation still re-
mains uncompleted.
In his letter. Rep. Koch said:
"SEVEN MO: elapsed, and I would appreciate
hearing from you on your Com-
mittee's findings. The IOC will
begin reviewing prospective host
cities' bids for the 1980 Olympiad

rectly on its consideration of
Moscow's bid.
"I know that you cannot guar-

must, be taken to prevent that
dreadful possibility if they are
not, the record will show where
the responsibility lies."

exhaustive report on the Yotn
Kippur War released here, the
Institute of Strategic Studies
concluded that while Egypt and
Syria failed to achieve their mil-
itary goals, their surprise attack
on Israel last Oct. 6 irreversibly
altered the political and military
situation in the Middle East, in-
creased prospects for a general
peace settlement and irrevocably
involved the two superpowers
U.S. and USSR in the fate of
the region.
The "greatest shock of the
war. the report said, was the use
of the oil weapon by the Arabs
which produced "the most potent
sense of a new era of any event
in recent years" in sharp con-
trast to the impotence of the
League of Nations to constrain
Italy and Japan by economic
sanctions in the 1930s, and more
recently the failure of the
United Nations "to force compli-
ance on a state as weak as
Rhodesia "
THE INSTITUTE of Strategic
Studies, one of the world's most
respected and reliable bodies for
the study of war, devoted 42 out
of 102 pages in its 1973 report to
the Yom Kippur War. its pre-
lude and aftermath.
"Perhaps the most encourag-
ing effect of the 1973 war was
to break the log-jam of fruitless

ed since the beginnings of 1971."
the report stati d
Both Israel and Egypt ,l|v

tion.-, now recognised that noth-

The report noted: "The two

and the United States, shared

gagement of forces.

"This was no longer the case.
The Soviet Union had been made
aware of the dangers inherent in

in the Middle East conflict."
The survey found that the
greatest uncertainty lay in the
Israeli position, following the n-
0 "t general election-, but ob-
served that "if Israel came to

ficacy of the IN forces, she

The report stated that an
American Israeli alliance has
been informally discussed "but
prospects of its realisation seem
quite uncertain."
Nonetheless, the report con-
tinued. "Any settlement between
Israel and the Arabs would need
to be underwritten by the United
States in some way or other, fo:
nothing short of this would ei
able Israel to feel secure."
The report observed that gen-
erally speaking, prospects for
Mideast peace are brighter than
they have been but this remain
a modest encouragement.
AMONG THE immediate les-
sons taught by the war. the In-
stitute's experts said, was the
fact that "neither Israel nor
Egypt could embark on such a
war again without the assurance
of full external support."

Have You Learned Latest Rumor?
T IS ONLY when I go abroad that I begin to real
ize fully the enormous communications gap which
'\i-ts between Israel and the Jews of the rest ol
the world.
While it is true that press, radio and television
provide extensive coverage of all exciting, dramatic
or otherwise newsworthy events, such coverage sel
dom goes beneath surface reporting and is frequent
ly distorted out of all proportion.
SUCH DISTORTION is not malicious; it is mere
ly a reflection of what the reporters and the editors
think constitutes news.
During a quick visit to Miami last month. 1
was asked a number of questions which revealed to
me how inadequately Jews overseas are tuned in
on what is really going on in Israelthis despite
(or perhaps because of) the flood of superficial re-
porting in recent months. For example, I was asked.
N it true that Israelis are overcome by a mood
of despondency and frustration?
ONLY WITH the greatest effort could I con
\ nee my auditors that they had been given misin
formation. There is no denying that Israelis ar? in
a serious, a sober mood The euphoria that enveloped
the country after the Six-Day War hai disappca; .1
All now realize that peace is not just around
the corner and that we still face difficult times. But
to equate this spirit of resolve and quiet determina
tion with despondency is a misreading of the facts.
WHY ARE so many Russian Jews leaving Is-
rael? Some stories die hard, and this is one of them
If some one had told me that close to a hundred
thousand Russian Jews had come to Israel in recent
years, and every single one of them was happy
integrated and well adjusted I would be suspicious.
The facts are that less than 500 Russian Immi-
grants in all. an insignificant percentage, have left
Israel Of course many of the others have adjust
ment problems, but so do all immigrants, every

In a chapter in which he d:scusses "oil and

THIS THE Viennese mass
daily. "Kronenzeitung," started
on Palm Sunday a new series on
"Jews in Austria The author is
a former Nazi and journalist who
founded in 1949 the "Union of
Independents." a party attracting
mostly former Naz:s V:L*.or Rei-
mann is now star columnist of
the "Kronenzeitung.'
The series was criticized imme-
diately among the population.
Rudolf Antoni. editor-in-chief of
the government newspaper,
"Wienerzeitung." said:
"Relmann comes from the na-
tionalistic camp ... It is necessary
to state this bcause th? author
writes certain things which some-
bodv else with differe-t opinions
would have written differently."
Manfred Scheuch. chief editor of
the "Socialist Arbeiterzeitung,"
said: "In Austria the anti-Semi-
tism survived even its victims,
the Jews... The author does not
explain things."
THE SERIES caused 3ngry re-
actions among the Jewish pop-
ulation. Anton Pick. Dresident of
the Jevi-h community in Vienna,
said: "Many Jews feels this story
was written in a way that it might
rise anti-Semitic feelings."
Anti-Semitism is still well root-
ed in Au-tria. A oubli; opinion
pool of 1989 showed that large
parts of the Austrian population
are still prejudiced against Jews.
Twenty-seven percent of those
interviewed said that "it is not
accidental that Jews were perse-
cuted throughout history."
R"*mann. a self-declared "non-
Jew," who w anted to write a story
"neither in favor nor against
Jews." flatly states at the begin-
ning of the series. "One of the
main causes for anti-Semitism is
to be found in the .Tews them-
selves." adding. "It is because of
