a lot more than you mikjht gatrv

Soviet Union's unimaginable rec-
ord as a brutal police state.
By implication, but maybe
without intention, the astonish-
ing Solzhenitsyn has also spoken
volumes about the nature of the
historical process in the 20th cen-
Of course, there is the ques-
tion whether historical phenom-
ena can be statistically measured.

rently raised by the much more
questionable but important new

ed, totally heart searing facts

most unsettlinK conclusion
The Russian people would be
immeasurably better off today if
the revolution of 191? had some-
bow failed to take place. OvW
autocracy was a pale, feeble,
downright comfortable system
compared to the bloodstained So

Consider, here, a few figures.
Under the rule of the czars in
the 80 years from 1826 to 1906.
the death penalty was ordered
for a total of 1.397 persons of
whom more than 500 hail their
sentences commuted or managed
to escape.
BUT IN the two years 1937-38.
Solzhenitsyn argues that "the su-
preme measure' was taken
against somewhere between 1
million-minus and 1.6 million
As to political prisoners, it is
amusing to read So.zlienitsyn

remarkable book. the first

An Expensive Choice
President Nixon* signing of basic economic agree-
ments with the Soviet Union at the same time that dissi-
dents and Jewish activists in the Soviet Union are being
mercilessly repressed does not speak well for him or us.
We have a long and well-documented history of
opposition to Russian oppression that reflects admirably
on the American heritage of freedom
It makes a mockery of President Nixon's position
voiced at Annapolis last month that the Soviet Union's
treatment of its nationals U an "internal matter" about
which we have no right to voice an opinion.
Perhaps the most august illustration that the President
is wrong was President Theodore Roosevelt's rupture of
relations with Czarist Russia in the wake of the dastardly
Kishinev pogroms.
President Roosevelt's action was this country's way of
telling Czar Nicholas that a freedom-loving America will
not do business with a benighted, bigoted, dictatorial gov-
President Nixon had an opportunity to do the same
thing in Moscow last weekend even more so Never
have the Soviets, suffering from lack of technological
know-how, wanted American trade, assistance and cheap
credit (a commodity not even the ordinary American
cttisen can get these days* more than now.
The President might easily have reminded Leonid
Brezhnev of this. There was little "danger" Brezhnev would
turn a cold shoulder to the reminder. Beggars can't Oe
But in the Nixon lexicon, we seem to be the beggars
and the Soviets the choosers, although it is we who have
what they want.
The Nixon sell-out of human rights is something all
of us will pay for dearly in the years ahead
Self-Defeating Action
The action taken by the Rabbinical Council of Amer-
ica during its convention here to move against a growing
incidence of intermarriage and the alienation ot Jewish
youth from Judaism is welcome by all observers of the
scene who have been worried about these social phenom-
ena for a long time.
We commend the RCA for its creation of a committee
of scholars that will work on the problem.
But somehow, the convention's action fails to square
with the spirit in which it met.
Even before the Orthodox rabbis sat down for their
deliberations, the RCA had hurled accusations against
leaders of the Conservative and Reform movements for
trying to "blackmail" the State of Israel.
What Rabbi Louis Bernstein, who made the charge,
meant was that Conservative and Reform Jews are mak-
ing their financial support of Israel conditional on Israel's
nefusal to accept Orthodox Jewry's demand for changes in
the state's Law of Return.
Bickering Wastes Energy
We don't intend taking issue on this thorny internecine
struggle whether Rabbi Bernstein is right in his charge
or Rabbis Alexander M. Schindler and Wolfe Kefrnan.
who responded in defense of the Reform and Conservative
movements, respectively.
It is our position in this regard that no matter what
measure of personal sacrifice we are called upon to make
in the cause of Israel, it can never be as great as the
sacrifices that the Israelis themselves are making.
We are being asked for our spirit and our substance,
not our blood, which the Israelis have shed four times
now during the past quarter-century to defend their right
to exist as a nation among nations.
It is also our position that such sacrifices as we make
do not entitle us to interfere in the governmental processes
of the State of Israel, which are matters of uniquely Israeli
So that, in the end. the charges hurled by Rabbi
Bernstein cloud the far more important issues with which
the RCA convention dealt They force energetic response
by other branches of Jewry that might better be directed,
for example, toward a resolution of the problem enun-
ciated by the special committee of scholars that will look
into intermarriage and the alienation of Jewish youth.
H there is a genuine concern for the fate of American
Jewry, which no one can deny is inextricably tied to the
fate of Israel, then that is far more important than bicker-
ing among the movements about Israeli political problems
that aim not or should not be within their province anyway.
VS. Joins the Red Oppressors
A COUPLE of months beck.
A when Alexandr Solxhenytsin
was exiled from the Soviet
l'nion. a number of readers pil-
loried me for venturing to say
that Solshenytsin is a second-
rate novelist.
His excellence. I suggested, lies
in what in America we call the
new journalism" an i also his
great courage.
IN THE first instance. I cor*
pared him to Norman Mailer
Mailer's phenomenal energy; his
lightning speed outpu': his pen-
chant fer meticulous investiga-
tive reporting with in editorial

cism; his beginings as a novelist,
which somehow never fulfilled
their grand artistic promise, only
a propagandtstic need

tivists and dissidents- wjRb re-
mained behind is tie* Soviet
Union to conUnue their rhetoric
of no their attack on Soviet
oppression at the cost of their
safety and. in fact, thsjx lives.
In retrospect, if anything, it
seems even clearer than before
that as for tua first excellence,
ell. the new journalism lo*ea
its punch thrown second-hand. In
the splendor of bourgeois isola-
tion, you can only ruminate

QaMaii Aims to 'FoiV Dr. Kissinger's Mideast Plans
.ZOA Elects Sternstein President
JVU flamboyant CoL Qaddafi of Libya has earned
for himself a reputation as an ardent anti-Co-
irtuniat. For many yeais he has been criticizing
Egyptian President Anar Sadat and other Arab
leaders for paving the way for the Soviet domina
tton of the Middle East.
- He has been denouncing all sorts of political,
rr.ilitar* and economic cooperation with the Rus-
sians, as well as Marxist doctrines and their Arab
subscribers. All members of the small Libyan Com-
munist Party who failed to flee, were arrested,
rrery book whose author was suspected of leftist
laanmfs was burned
ALL THIS now belongs to the past. Not that
Qaddafi has suddenly turned into a Communit Far
from it. But he hs changed his taste and is now
seeking* lor (he first time, a political alliance with
Moscow. J"or the sake of this alliance. Qaddafi is
prepared to ignore his previous objections and to
prai>e the Russians a> "sine* ndi

singer a diplomatic offensive, harmful to the Aiab
cause, and to prevent Kissinger's Arab puppets
(that is. Sadat) from bctraytnji their peoples."
QADDAFI IS out to stop Sadat before he gets
around to the second stage of the Geneva confer-
ence. He failed to convince President Assad of
Syria to join him. The Iraqis, who share Libya's
opposition to Sadat's policy, are too busy with the
Kurdish revolt.
The Algerians have cold-shouldered Qaddafi on
several occasions. The only course, theretore. was a
quick rapprochement with the Kremlin.
Appaiently. Qaddafi believes that the Russians
too are looking for new allies. They have lost their
g:ip on Egypt, and Syria too has become a risky
investment for them What the Libyans are suji-
geting is a diversion of Soviet support from those
Arab ref met who failed to pay back dividends to
a "truly revolutionary pot
QADDAFI IS in no need for money, or markets

material aid although a big arms deal *U con-
cluded but in political and moral terms Soviet
backing car rally behind Qaddafi many leftist or-
ganizations and help him in his effort! to draw the
armed Palestinian organizations from Sadat's sphere
of influence.
It is doubtful whether the Russians are des-
perate enough to put all their eggs in Qaddafi s
basket. If they switched into an open alliance with
the Libyans their losses elsewhere might prove
catastrophic. The switch would mean a clear-cut
rejection of a political settlement.
However, they would not like to miss the gold-
en opportunity to gain a firm foothold in Libya.
And so. apart from the red carpet treatment for
Jaloud. and promises for some cooperation and
he.p. the So\icts did not buy the idea of backing
Libya a: the expense, for example, of Syria, at
Qaddafi had wanted.
BIT THEY certainly like the prospect of using
Libyan leverage against their former client. Egypt.

Rabbinical Council Will Study
Intermarriage and Alienation
Can't Confirm
Rumor Soviets Will
the Rabbinical Council of
America announced here last
week creation of a committee of
scholars and rabbis to formulate
a course of action to arrest the
rising incidence of mixed mar-
riage and alienation of IMM
youth from Judaism.
Rabbi Fabua Schonfeld, of
New York, newly-elected presi-
dent of the LtOO member Ortho-
dox rabbinical group, told the
38th annual RCA convention that
the committee will be headed by
Dr Norman Larrm. professor of
Jewish philosophy at Yeshiva
University. Dr Simon Lopata.
professor of economics at St.
Johns University in New York,
and Dr. Joseph Kaminetsky. di-
rector of Torah I'mesorah. the
National Society for Hebrew Day
committee would study in depth
the "fundamental motivations
which determine wh> voung stu-
c.ents tend to abandon traditional
Judaism in the realm of mar-
riage and other social areas "
He said the RCA would co-
operate with Yavneh. a JewisB
Orthodox youth mov*ni*nt. and
*~wM^*^^ tions
He said mixed marriages on
American campuses had reached
"alarming proportions" and con-
stituted "the greatest challenge
to the continuity of the Jewish
community in this country" and
"a serious menace to the very
survival of traditional Judaism."
He cited a survey which he
said indicated that in the na-
tional capital, with a population
of more than 100.000 Jews, more
than 30 percent of children of
American-born Jewish parents
marry non-Jews and that rates as
high as 40 percent had been re-
ported in Iowa and Indiana.
report that 41 percent of Reform
rabbis had indicated their readi-
ness to solemnize mixed marri-
and said "we must admon-
ish them to desist from paving
the road to assimilation "
Such 'religious liberalism.'' he
said, was suicidal to "the perpet-
uation of American Jewry."
Rabbi Bernard Twersky. the
R \ press officer, said the new
committee would create centers
to advise young cjllefe students
Orthodox Rabbis
Urge Confidential
Students Records
The Rabbinical Court of the Or-
thodox Rabbinate of Greater Mi-
ami tbil week called on all prin-
cipals of Hebrew schools and
day schools here "to keep com-
plete and confidential records on
all students concerning their
Jewish identity "
Rabbi Tibor H. Stern, presid-
ing officer of the Orthodox Rab-
binic Court, .said that the confi-

tew. Mass.)
Jewish tradition has a general
rule which contends that a per-
son is obligated to protect his
bodily health It is. therefore,
forbidden to do anything to en-
danger his health.
There have been a number of
articles written in recent issues
of rabbinic periodicals pointing
out that since smoking is a health
hazard, it should not be engaged
in. I have even noticed adver-
tisements in some religious mag-
azines and newspapers cautioning
people of the Jewish faith not to
engage in smoking because of the
ixissible danger to one's physical
Jewish tradition has. therefore,
indeed been sensitive to the dan-
ger of the smoking habit and has
responded accordingly It should
be clarified, however, that a Jew
should consult a competent rabbi
regarding his immediate person: I

that it would prove that the Wif*
