the establishment of a "national

This call was coupled with a
clear refusal to pay the price,

to try and straighten out the Pal-

its representation at the peace
ALL THIS has been made pos-
sible by the modest ceremony
which took place last week here.
Syria and Israel had to find a
modus vivendi to stop the fight-
ing on the Golan and thus, for
the first time since the October
var. stop all military activities
between Israel and its Arab
Both sides seemed aware of
the crucial nature of their talks
and both seemed eager to try
and conclude the disengagement

It was the first Arab Israeli
negotiations ever completed
without the slightest incident or
difficulty. As the nead of the
United Nations troop force. Lt.
General Ensio Siilawuo said at
the ceremony. Both sides were
prepared to make concessions to
ensure the success of the talks "
IN SPITE of the agreement
reached between Jerusalem and
Damascus during Kissingi
shuttles between the two capi
tals, a major issue remained to
be settled. Namely, what subject!
were to be raised first at the in
ception of the talks.
For Israel, the baai< ii ;ie re-
mained the repatriation of the
remaining POWs for Syria. Is-

the two subjects simultaneously,
devoting part of the time at each
session to the subjects rais.d by
both sides.

of the five actually foreseen by

The Baron Passes Away
A man long familiar in South Florida has passed
from the scene.
Baron de Hirech Meyer died here last weekend.
The man has passed, but not his name.
For decades, toe laron made a most important im-
pact on the civic, psrianihropic. cultural and educational
scenes of toe Jewish and general communities of Greater
What is more, it came when South Florida needed H
most when it was to toe throes of incredibly fast growth
from a tourist town to one of the nation's large and impor-
tant population centers.
The Baron was a founder and pivotal in the com-
munal affairs of so many major organisations that it would
De fruitless to list them here.
Mare important, we have a notion he would prefer us
not to.
But his contribution to the development of the Uni-
versity of Miami, Mount Sinai Hospital, the Jewish Home
for the Aged, the Greater Miami Jewish Federationthese
end so many otherswill always speak for itself.
Baron de Hirsch Meyer has passed away, but not his
Sinai Wasn't Egypt's
The "Palestinian question' is only one thorn in Israel's
side as the prospect of renewing the Geneva deliberations
looms en the horizon. A second consideration is Jerusalem,
which no Israeli political leader can compromise without
zr.nging down his government.
And then, there is the Sincd desert, which President
Sadat insists so blithely must be returned as part of Egypt's
' sccred soil."
Forget the Bar Lev Line (most of us would like to). It
is in tact the rast waste of the Sinai sands that protected
Israel from Egypt's sneak Yom Kippur attack last October.
And while the official line at the end of the Six-Day
War in 1967 was that Israel did not intend to keep the
Sinai if only the Arabs would sit down and talk peace, we
must bear in mind these important facts:
Sadat Talk-Only Talk-
Prior to 1906. the Sinai was part of the Ottoman Em-
pire. In that year, according to Asariah Allon. an expert
in the field, the Turks agreed to give Egypt control over
the desert after no longer being able to resist Britain's pres-
sures on them to do so the British at thai time were the
actual masters of Egypt
But the fact is that the Sinai was never an integral
part of Egyptian territory.
And so. Sadat's talk of Sinai as Egypt's "sacred soil"
is just that talk.

^ firing line." columnist
WTfliam T Buckley consistently
manages to asake his Jewish
guests leak absurd
By -Jewish," I mean of course
those guests wbo are not just
nominal Jews and appear with
aim ta discuss, say, possibilities
of pepatotrtt Alpha Centauri ar

af Willy Brandt's culpability in
the West German spy scandal
I MEAN js who are active-
ly wssfwaed with things Jewish.
Such guests as these always man
age to come off second best
A case in point is the recent
Buckley tape af an interview
whh Dr. Fayea A. Sayegh ceaa-
selor to the Kuwaiti delegation
at the United Nations
Dr. Sayegh was there to dis-
cuss the Arab refugees and what
has in the last few years come
to be called the "Palestine ques-
WITH BUCKLEY as interro-
gator. Sayegh did a brilliant job
of answering Buckley's queries
in a seemingly most scholarly
wayand in disseminating about
as neat a package of misinforma-
tion as anyone could possibly tie
together without the least bit of
effective rebuttal.
Thus. Sayegh passed along all
the old saws about Israel and
Zionism that have been kicking
around since Partition itself:
The "three-miliion" Arab
refugees who have been demand-
ir.c justice since 1948 when in
1948 the number who left what
became Israel was under 250.000;
The "brutal" way in which
the Arabs were chased from
their land when in fact they
were advised to leave by the
Mandate vacating British, who
assured them that they would re-
turn as conquerors after the
Zionists were crushed in the War
of Liberation, and that they
would not only be able to re-
claim their own holdings, but
also to steal back the holdings
that Jews hsd been painfully
purchasing from them and culti-
vating since the turn of the 20th
The peace treaty signed on
the Island of Rhodes that ended
the War of Liberation in which
Israel promised" the refugees
repatriation (the Arabs always
see the victorious Israelis in the
vanquised supplicator's role of
promising concessions to them),
when the truth is that the orig-
inal United Nations wording sug-
gested either compensation or
restitution or repatriation for
refugees, not repatriation solely
and exclusively.
IN FACT, Dr Sayegh's presen-
tation had all the earmarks of a
Fatah pronunciamento. including
the standard Fatah prerequisite
for peace in the Middle East, a
return to the status quo ante,
meaning there can be no peace
until Israel ceases to exist.
These days, the polite euphe-
mism for this is the view that
there must be a "new Socialist
Palestine." in which Arabs and
Jews will live "democratically''
BUT THAT'S what it means
a dissolution of Israel And Dr.
Sayegh is not the only proponent
of this position, which he made
quite clear on Buckley's "Firing
Line." arguing that Jews and
Arabs have lived side by side in
"Christian-Moslem Palestine" for

Downed Pilot
Tortured To
by Syrians
JERUSALEM (JTA) Avi Lanir, a downed Israeli pilot
who. according to all available evidence, was tortured to death
by his Syrian captors, was buried here last week.
His body was returned from Syria following the signing of
the final disengagement accords in Geneva.
Lanir, a graduate of the Haifa Technion and the father of
two children, bailed out over Syrian territory Oct. 13 when
his plane was shot down by a ground-to-air missile during a dog-
fight with Syrian MIGs.
-ISRAELI FORCES nearby witnessed his landing and cap-
ture by the Syrians before they could rescue him. He was seen
walking with his captors indicating that he was in good physical
- But when Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger arrived
from Damascus two months ago with the first list of Israeli
prisoners in Syrian hands, Lanir's name was missing.
Israeli POWs who returned from Syria last week reported
that he was alive at least a month after his capture.
One returning pilot said he talked to Lanir in prison. It is
therefore clear to Israeli authorities that Lanir died in Syrian
hand*, probably as a result of torture.

Brandeis University campus in
Waltham. Mass.
Brandeis, the nation's only

University, was founded in 1948,
only days apart from its Worn

undertaken responsibility for
maintaining and supporting
Brandeis' libraiy system.
Much of the success of the
Women's Committee has been
achieved from life and annual
memberships, as well as from a
wide variety of fund-raising ac-
tivities. Another attraction for
members is participation in
study groups that are based on
syllabi prepared especially for
this purpose by Brandeis faculty.

Preparedness Lapse
Rapped Again
TEL AVIV (JTA) The 24th annual report of the SU*-
Comptroller. Dr. Yitzhak Nebenzahl. contains severe new indictments
of Israel's lack of preparedness on the eve of the Yom Kippur War.
The section of the report dealing with the military noted serious
deficiencies in the repair and maintenance of tanks, half-tracks, troop
carriers and other armored vehicles.
THE REPORT bears out the
criticism by many individual sol-
dier* that the equipment handed
them when war broke out was in
poor condition and often unserv-
Dr. Nebenzahl is a member of
the Agranat Committee investi-
gating the Yom Kippur War. The
committee's preliminary report
covering the period immediately
before the outbreak of war blam-
ed Israel's lack of preparedness
mainly on the military high com-
mand and forced the resignation
of Chief of Staff Gen. David
The committee is expected to
complete its report covering the
conduct of the war some time
next fall.
Dr. Nebenzahl acknowledged
his conflicting roles when he of-
fered April 30 to resign from the
Agranat Committee.
HE NOTED that as State Comp-
troller his duty is to expose short-
comings, including those in the
defense network, and as an Agra-
nat Committee member he is one
of a panel of five who must de-
termine who is responsible for
the lf-same shortcomings.
The section of the Comptrol-
ler's report dealing with the arm-
ed forces stated that scores of
half-tracks and armored vehicles
had not been inspected for three-
to-five fears when the Yom Kip-
pur War started, periods much
longer than specified in military

tenance of tanks and a dispropor-

age of tanks and other vehicles
found that while regional work-
shops kept up the maintenance of
equipment belonging to units
within that region, they neglected

stored in the same region.
The bulk of the Comptroller's

problems of the various govern-
ment ministries, irregularities,
overrunnings of budgets and in-
correct handling of tenders to

This inner contradiction,

He suggested from the onset
that the ten points be registered

IN FACT, Arafat and his col-
leagues were mainly interested
in avoiding any conflict with
Egypt. President Anwar Sadat
was piessing them to declare
readiness to go to Geneva and
form a Viet Cong style "provi-
sional government"
Arafat would not go that far.
Instead, he threw the ball back
to Sadat by demanding improve-
ment of the Resolution 242's
"Palestinian clause." Although
the Egyptians were not pleased
with the advance achieved in the
PNC, they are now bound to re-
sume efforts for a Jordanian-Pal-

for more explicit positions, the
Egyptians have to get Araiat and

on the status, composition and
role of a Palestinian delegation
in Geneva. Only after this is se-

Nixon Political Fortunes on Roller-Coaster
^ WASHINGTON-Jhe fortunes
,' of Richard M. Nixon have had a
strong roller-coaster tendency
ever since he entered political
Mfe. And now, after a long and
fearful downward swoop, it sud-
denly seems possible that the
ioiler coaster may start on an
| upgrade
I Tbis may hardly seem credible
JJjj view of the latest revelation
Pthal the Watergate grand jury
{named the President as an "un-

[which is where the signs matter.

First, there is no longer any
likelihood of an authoritative
.group 0f Republican leaders go-
ing fo trie White House to tell
e President he must resign.
A fortnight ago, this seemed
ill but certain to happen at an
Ifearly date and with Sen. Bar-
try Goldwater of Arizona leading
the deputation, at that. But now
li that has abruptly changed.
SECOND, k seems much, much
less likely that the House Ju-
diciary' Committee will rt\.om-
mend the President's impeach-
ment on grounds of criminality
by a large bipartisan majority.
Even the Judiciary Committee,
although weighted against the
President, has become an uncer-
tain factor in the equation.
Third, it therefore seems possi-
ble that the House as a whole
may fail to pro'ucc the needed
majority for a bill of impeach-
There are several reasons for
this abrupt change in the former
outlook. For one thing, the acute
revulsion produced by the publi-
cation of the White House tape
transcripts has had time to die
FOR ANOTHER thing, great
numbers of Republican members
of the House and Senate have
begun to hear a sharply changed
song from their constituents.
The sharp change was caused
by the open talk of the need for
the President's resignation by
leading Republicans on Capitol
Hill. House Minority Leader
John Rhodes of Arizona, for in-
stance, was one of those who
mentioned the dire word.
Abruptly, his mail shifted from
3-1 anti-Nixon to 8-1 pro-Nixon,
with a lot of it vituperatively
anti-Rhodes. And when he got
home for the Memorial Day re-
cess, Rep. Rhodes found a hor-
nets' nest in his own district.
THE PLAIN fact is that all
over the country the remaining
Nixon loyalists have suddenly
become vocal, angry', even venge-
ful. Nixon loyalists also consti-
tute from 30 percent to 60 per-
cent of the voters who elected
every single Republican member
of the House and Senate.
You can see how simple math-
ematics would therefore cause a
strong, if reluctant Republican
consolidation behind the Presi-

Big Peril
President Nixon and Henry

all of whom let them know in
no uncertain terms what they
want in return for their "friend-
ship" are faced with a real
dilemma: what policy to adopt
with respect to the knotty
problem of the Palestinians.
One thing il certain. No mat-

gitimizing the murderous-bent

without Baying that Israel cannot
consent to sit at one table with
the perpetrators of Maalot and
Kiryat Shemona.
The dastardly deeds found no
condemnation neither among the
so-called moderate leaders of the
PLO nor among the heads of the
Arab states, nor even here at the
United Nations.
DURING THE unprecedented
Nixon visit to Egypt. Sadat lost
no time in letting the President
know that unless the national
aspirations of the Palestinians
meaning the terrorists are
fulfilled, there can be no perma-
nent peace in the Middle East.

rpHE debate over capital punish-
ment for terrorists ranks
high on the list of things Israelis
talk about these days. Although
capital punishment is provided
for in Israel legislation, it has
never been invoked, except in the
case of Adolf Eichmann.
The arguments for and against
under present circumstances can
be easily summed up. and de-
spite first impressions that exec-
ution is the best answer for ter-
rorism, the solution is not all
that simple.
In favor of execution: There is
today no deterrent for murdeous
acts against women, children or
civilians. The Arab terrorist from
across the border knows that he
i- taking a chance, but if he is
it alive, he also knows that
he will be fed and housed and
taken care of in an Israel prison.
The word must get around that
murder by terrorist act is punish-
ed by execution It will cut down
considerably the number of
would-be heroes.
F irthermore, the very presence
of the captured murders in our
jails serves as invitation to other
terrorists to seek hostages as a
m'^ns of effecting release of
their comrades. The fact that
they did not succeed at Kiryat
Shmonoh or at Maalot. does not
mean they won't try again.
Next time, it may be a gr children of Israel diplomats
somewhere abroad or even a
large group of non-Israeli, non-
Jcwish children, held as hostages
to compel other governments to
pressure Israel for release of a
hundred terrorists. How long can
Israel withstand such pressure?
The only answer is speedy exe-
cution of all who, having been
given a fair trial, are found
guilty of heinous crimes against
humanity. There should be no
incentive for hostages blackmail.
The arguments against execu-
tion: First of all. this is not the
Jewish, not the Israeli way. Our
enemies may be murderers, but
we must continue to be a civiliz-
ed people. We can not sacrifice
our moral and ethical standards
even under great provocation
One compromise proposal which
has been advanced is now being
given careful study. Apprehended
terrorists who have been found
guilty of wilful murder should be
legally s< ntenced to death, but
execution should be suspended.
When next there is a seizure of
hostages, with a demand for re-
lease of prisoners, our reply
should be direct:
W J" not yield to blackmail,
and no prisoners will be released.
For each hostage who may be
killed in A-ab action, our courts
will legally activate the death
penalty, remove the suspension,
and execute one of those whose
release had been requested.
In other words, the kidnapping
and murder of hostages would
automatically, by Arab act. re-
sult in a lgal execution of one
who h3d already been convicted,
but bad benefited from Israeli
mercy. .

DIFFERENCES OF speaking have played a big pai\
in American history from the beginning. At the
Constitutional Convention in 1787. Major Pierce, a
Georgia delegate writing of one of the Connecticut
delegates, was most laudatory but at the same time
admitted that in the beginning he was greatly prej-
udiced against him because of the New England
tone of voice and speech.
Some think it was slavery that divided the
North and South, but only a small fraction of the
Southerners owned slaves. Some people say the dif-
rerent diets brought on the war. The Southerner
ate hominy and grits, the Northerner wheat cakes
and beans.
But probably it was not what they put in their
mouth, but what came out of the mouththe differ-
ent way of speaking that made each section look on
the other as foreign and caused the war.
AS THE theological expression has it, the word
becomes flesh.
