Dutch Remember
Strike to Protest
Nazi Deportations
AMSTERDAM (JTA) The 35th anniversary
of the February, 1941, strike, when a large portion of
the population of Amsterdam and neighboring towns
went on strike to protest the Nazi deportation of the
400 Dutch-Jewish youths to concentration camps, was
marked here last week.
As has happened every year since the end of
World War II, the gesture of popular resistance to
Nazi brutality was commemorated by a parade headed
by the Mayor and Aldermen of Amsterdam.
They placed a wreath at the statute of "The Steve-
dore," symbolic of the strike in this port city. The statue
is located in Jonas Daniel Meyer Square which was the
center of Amsterdam's Jewish quarter before the war
and where the 400 deportees were rounded up.
They were the first Dutch Jews sent to their death
by the German occupiers of Holland. The deportation
was in reprisal for an attack on a group of Dutcn
Nazis. -
The strike, which occurred on Feb. 25 and it>,
1941, was a failure insofar as it did not prevent the
deportation and led to even more vicious anti-Jewish
measures. But it served as a symbol of Dutch resist-
* Among the thousands who filed past "The Steve-

'Deputy9 Producer Zvi Kolitz to Highlight April Gala
Continued from Pajje 1
pate to the World Zionist Con-
gress in Basle, Switzerland.
KOLITZ has written articles,
plays, stories and historical
studies in Hebrew and English.
When his book "The Tiger
Beneath the Skin" appeared in
New York in 1948 the Herald
Tribute critic said that "Kolitz
writes of terror with a report-
orial realism that freezes the
blood in horror." The New York
Times critic, titling his revue
"Bitter Wisdom," described Ko-
litz as an author in whom the
"supernatural and the natural
mingle harmoniously together."
A story in 1954 by Zvi Kolitz,
"Yossel Rakover to God," was
translated into 14 languages
and described by Nobel Prize-
winner Thomas Mann as "one
of the most shattering human
and religious documents I have
ever come across."
Kolitz was the author and
executive producer of Israel's
first major motion picture, "Hill
24 Doesn't Answer," which was
awarded international prizes in
Cannes and Mexico City and
chosen one of the ten best pic-
tures of the year by the New
York Post. He was the copro-
ducer on Broadway of one of
the most controversial and talk-
ed about plays of the century,
Rolf Hochhuth's "The Deputy,"
a Tony Award-winning produc-
tion that focused attention on
the Question of silence as a
moral crime.
Kolitz is executive producer
of "The First Circle." a 1974
film based on the Nobel Prize-
wmning novel by the Russian
author Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
Pauline Kael in "The New York-
er" called "The First Circle" a
"passionate cri de coeur."
Kolitz has recently completed
"Survival for What?" a book
on the meaning of Judaism. His
newest films are "A Train Goes
to Russia," starring Theodore
Bikel. and "Masada." of which
Gen. Yigal Yadin. chief archae-
ologist of the Masada dig, is the
production advisor.

the leading areas of the Greater
Fort Lauderdale United Jewish
Appeal Campaign. Kay said,
"The "rogram sponsored by the
Federation for recreation, cul-
tural and social welfare needs
of the local community which
serve all ages is a vital part
of strengthening Jewish life
and solidarity in the Greater
Fort Lauderdale area."
Locke declared at the com-
mittee meeting that there was a
very clear understanding that
Israel is perhaps facing the
most critical period since the
founding of the state. He added
tht "the strain of an inflation
rate in excess of 25 percent,
economic stringencies, the daily
toll of terrorists and the heavy
military burden and the political
isolation take their toll on tli
morale of the people of Israel.
"Their one source of strength
is the Jews of the free world,
particularly the United States,
and that never has the meaning
unif' of all Jews, been more
of 'We Are One,' declaring the
urgsnt than today."
International Village Gears Up For 1976
United Jewish Appeal-Federation Drive
Jules Bairn, chairman, and
Hilda Leibo, cochairman, have
announced that plans are being
completed for the gala event
scheduled for Sunday, April 4,
at 8 p.m. at the International
Village Clubhouse.
The committee felt very
strongly that John E. Mullin, a
resident of International Vil-
lage, should be honored on this
occasion for his outstanding
humanitarian service to the
Mullin, a retired executive of
Sears, Roebuck, has come to
our community with a history
of extensive community activi-
ties, all toward the betterment
of mankind.
IN A testimonial tendered to
him by the American Jewish
Committee Appeal for Human
Relations on June 15, 1971, he
was honored with the following
citation: "His personal warmth
and concern for the well-being
of others have placed him in
the forefront of leadership of
our philanthropic activities."
On May 13. 1970, he was hon-
ored by the United Jewish Ap-
peal for his many worthy civic
and community programs. He
is an officer of the Fraternal
Order of Police Associates,
Lauderhill Lodge No. 53.
Another outstanding feature
for that evening will be enter-
tainment by B'nai Shalom
Sons of Peace, a non-Jewish
group that sings in Hebrew and
DURING the Yom Kippur
War, they were permitted by
the Israeli Cabinet and the De-
fense Ministry to entertain Is-
raeli forces at the battlefront.
Fred Kaban, executive vice
president of the Jewish Nation-
al Fund, West Coast Region,
recently said, "The B'nai Sha-
lom, perhaps more than any
other group I know of which is
lending financial support to
J iraelis in their day-to-day
working of the land, have had
the rare opportunity also to
lend to many Israelis in their
hoar of naed tremendous moral
support. Their very being there,
while the war was raging, en-
abled thi.m to share and em-
pathize with individual Israelis
experiencing daily the peril of
frontier life."

Brussels Conference
Rabbi Jacob Goldberg, first
chairman of the Greater New
York Conference on Soviet Jew-
ry and a delegate to the recent
Brussels Conference on Soviet
Jewry, recently addressed a
special meeting of the Commu-
nity Relations Committee of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale on the Brus-
sels Conference. Alvin Capp,
Chairman of the Community
Relations Committee, said that
over 25 persons attended the
Rabbi Goldberg first outlined
the events leading to the Con-
ference. He said that Soviet
Jewish emigration, which had
reached heights of 35,000 to
40,000 annually from 1971 to
1974, had fallen to less than
10,000 in 1975.
The thrust of the conference
was in two areas: allowing Jews
to leave and improving Jewish
life in Russia. In response to a
question, Goldberg said that the
main reason the Soviet Union
will not allow Jews to leave is
that it will open the gates to
other minority groups who de-
sire to leave. There are over
750,000 Jews, according to re-
liable sources, who wish to emi-
grate. *
Goldberg also said that the
need for better cooperation be-
tween Soviet Jewry organiza-
tions and communities was call-
ed for at the conference. He
concluded by relating a story
concerning former Israeli Prime
Minister Golda Meir which ex-
pressed the need to "yell more
on behalf of Soviet Jewry."
Anyone wishing to assist the
Community Relations Commit-
tee with projects on behalf of
Soviet Jewry is asked to con-
tact the Federation office, 484-

Brussels II Made Gains
The Second World Conference on Soviet Jewry, like
its predecessor five years ago, succeeded in placing the
spotlight of world public opinion on the Soviet Union's
shameful refusal to allow Jews to emigrate to Israel and
the repressive methods it uses against those who apply
to leave.
But Brussels II, unlike the 1971 conference, made
three major points that should help put the struggle for
Soviet Jewry in proper focus.
First, and most important, there was stressed that
along with help to those Jews who want to emigrate,
there must also be for those Jews who wish to remain in
the Soviet Union the right to express their Jewish cul-
tural and religious tradition.
Secondly, numerous speakers stressed that Brus-
sels II was not aimed against the Soviet government but
only sought to have the Soviet Union grant Jews the
right to emigrate and /or to live freely as Jews which
is given them by the USSR's own laws and the interna-
tional agreements it has signed such as the United Na-
tions Declaration on Human Rights and the Helsinki
Exaggeration Must End
Speakers stressed that it is counterproductive to
compare the Soviet Union to Nazi Germany, and it only
hurts the cause of Soviet Jewry to g too far in invec-
tives. As one speaker noted, Nazi Germany sought to
eliminate Jews; the Soviet Union seeks to go out of its
way to keep its Jews.
Brussels II may have been a "talk shop" as some
claimed, but it was talk that served to center the spot-
light on the plight of Soviet Jewry. Coming oa the eve
of the 25th Commumist Party Congress a Moscow, Brus-
sels II may have embarrassed the Kremlin enough to
cause it to permit 100 Soviet Jews to leave for Israel.
The task now is to keep the spotlight shining with-
out exaggerating the problem so that the many thou-
sands of Jews who waat to leave will be allowed to go
to Israel.
ORT Day 1976
A proclamation named last Wednesday, Mar. 17, as
ORT Day 1976. The celebration stressed the quality
of education of the United States in the nation's Bicen-
tennial year.
Some 125,000 members of Women's American ORT
in 1,000 chapters from coast-to-coast are vitally interest-
ed in education.
ORT built and operates a worldwide vocational
network of schools in 22 countries in an effort to help
needy people become self-sustaining.
Since its inception in 1880, ORT has trained more
than a million people, and today it enrolls upwards
of 75,000 students annually in some 700 schools that
teach modern skills ranging from carpentry and weld-
ing to avionics, telecommunications and computer re-
'Theft' of the Holocaust
Dr. Emil Fackenheim, the eminent philosophy pro-
fessor at the University of Toronto, has charged the
Soviet Union and the Arab states with the "systematic
theft of the Holocaust" from the Jewish people.
He claimed they are saying: "The Israelis are the
new Nazis; the Palestinian Arabs are the new Jews;
the Palestine Liberation Organization is the French
freedom fighters, and Zionism is racism." Fackenheim
said the plot which was launched by the Soviet Union
when it called Israelis Nazis at the United Nations fol-
lowing the 1967 Six-Day War, was picked up by the
Arabs culminating in the UN resolutions equating Zion-
ism with racism.
The attempt to equate Israel's treatment of the
Palestinians with the Nazi extermination of the Jews
is obscure. There are no concenration or death camps
in Israel.
Jewish Floridian
The Kissinger-White House Tie
( iVER THE years, the ques-
tion has persisted: How is it
that Henry Kissinger managed
to live and work with Richard
Nixcn all that time?
We may disagree with his
policies, but apart from his ge-
netic flirtation with the Bis-
marckian soul, there is nothing,
at least not apparent, in Kis-
singer that could have disposed
him to such a seemingly amica-
ble relationship as the one he
enjoyed with Nixon.
THAT WOULD have taken a
kind of emotional pathology,
and Kissinger doesn't suffer
from any, or so the argument
goes. It must be that he got
along so famously with Nixon
because he is after all superbly
skilled in the diplomatic arts;
it must be that he is a veritable
Talleyrand, an absolute Metter-
nich names by now com-
monly used as adjectives to de-
sciibe the Kissinger "genius"
in affairs cf statD.
As for me, rther answers to
the question of how h worked
with Nixon and even managed
to sunive him have began to
emerge and, in fact, mil e
more sense.
It all began with the occa-
sional bursts of temper and
wMl before his threatened res-
ignation at a press conference
in Salzburg last June. One'
should not think that that was
the first of the.
WHAT WAo common to these
was the rage that his judgment
should be questioned or that
the breadth of his power was
about to be curbed. What was
common to these was the dis-
torted Kissinger view of his
political bond to the American
He could not see himself as
an un-.lected public official
in s-nice to the nation by Ex-
ecute e prhilege as defined in
the constitutional provisions
governing the pursuit of for-
eign policy. Rather, he has
f-nded to see himself in abso-
lutist Bismarckian terms and
that is why I have always been
offended by those who describe
him as a latter-day Talleyrand
or Metternich.
The political distinction here
is an important one not only
because of Kissinger's own self-
image, but also because of
the American people's twisted
image of him, at any rate the
twisted image of those who
characterized and in some
quarters still characterize him
as a Talleyrand or Metternich.
SO THAT there should be no
mistake, let it be understood
that the difference betwcei
Talleyrand and Metternich on
the one hand and Bismarck on
the other is the difference be-
tween the benign and the mal-
ignant, between a superficial
wart and a ravaging cancer in
the body politic.
The growing Kissinger pro-
pensity for rage was, as I say,
only the beginning. The second
stage was his need to compare
himself favorably with world
leaders who do not, in fact,
share his status as a non-elect-
ed official.
Hence, the late King Saud
was a "religious fanatic." Yit-
zhak Rabin was a "little man
with no policies he can call his
own." Golda Meir reminded
him of "the stink of gefilte

MELBOURNE, Australia
(JTA) Gough Whitlam, the
former Prime Minister and now
leader of the Opposition, is ex-
pected to resign or be replaced
following allegations that he and
other Labor Party officials were
involved in a plan to accept
$500,000 in secret campaign
funds from the Iraqi govern-
The allegations, which have
shocked the Australian Labor
Party and provided a series of
sensational front page news
stories this week, have raised
serious questions about attempts
by Arab financial interests cov-
ertly to influence Australian
policies at the highest level dur-
ing the Whitlam government's
term in office between 1972 and
WHITLAM, in the wake of the
sensational disclosures, has ad-
mitted that he met two officials
from the Iraqi government last
December, three days before the
national elections at a private
apartment in Sydney. But he
has emphatically denied that he
discussed either election cam-
paign funds or foreign policy
during the meeting.
Whitlam was discussed as
prime minister on Nov. 11 by
the governor general, Sir John
Kerr, after a constitutional
crisis threatened to paralyze
the Australian political system.
On Dec. 13, the caretaker Prime
Minister, Malcolm Fraser, led
the Liberal National Party coali-
r'on to a landslide victory over
Whitlam and the Australian La-
bor Parfv.
Despite Whitlam's denials, the
president of the ALP, Bob Haw-
ke, has confirmed that the Iraqi
government made the offer, but
he aided that when party offi-
cials -learned of it, they imme-
diately rejected the proposal.
(Havijke also, said the same thing
wheiihe was in.Israel last week
for two days as a guest of the
ACCORDING to newspaper
reports, Whitlam's involvement
with the Iraqis began soon after
his dismissal from office last
November. Suddenly faced with
the need to organize a national
political campaign, he reported-
\y turned for assistance to Bill
Hartley, an extreme left-wing
member of the party's national
executive and an outspoken
supporter of the Palestine Li-
beration Organization.
Hartlev had often traveled to
the Middle East and was known
to have wide contacts with
Arab governments and the PLO.
Whitlam is reported to have
asked Hartley to make an ap-
peal to the Baghdad government
for campaign funds and failing
that, to appeal to PLO leader
Yasir Arafat.
sein Al Takratri is reported to
have responded quickly to the
appeal and sent his nephew and
the head of the Iraqi secret po-
lice, Faroul Al Jezirah-Yeeyah,
to Australia for a meeting with
The go-between who repre-
sented Whitlam and Hartley in
Baghdad, in a twist of irony,
was Henry Fischer, an extreme
right-wing businessman with a
long history of racism and antr
Semitism. In recent years, he
has involved himself with the
extreme left wing supporters of
the. PLO in Australia. .
The Iraqis arrived in
Australia on Dec. 8 after giv-
ing false declarations as to their
intentions in coming here, a
matter now under investigation
by the Australian authorities.
After staying under false
name*-at a Sydney Hotel, they
met Whitlam on Dec. 10. Ac-
cqraing to a detailed report in
the Australian, both Iraqis car-
ried pistols at the meeting and
greeted Whitlam by saying: the
President of Iraq is very happy
to respond to the brotherly call
of the Australian comrades and
is glad to support them in every
ded that Whitlam said he was
certain to be reelected to power
on the following Saturday, that
there had been "Zionist pres-
sures" in Australia which had
prevented his government from
being as pro-Arab as he would
have liked, and that things
would be "different in future."
He is said to have promised
them that Hawke, the leading
pro-Israel spokesman in the
Labor Party, would never lead
the parliamentary party.

The New Immortality
Immorality in world politics
ally nothing new. It is gen-
:ly accepted that nations do
not and cannot behave as in-
uiuals. But even if one
chooses the yardstick of self-
nterest, when it comes to Is-
rael-related issues, some West-
tin nations seem blind both to
moral considerations and self-
The Arab states, backed by
the Soviet and the so-called
non-aligned blocs, have pro-
claimed Zionism as the root of
;.ll evil. This anti-Zionist cam-
paign, designed as a smoke-
r n to hide traditional anti-
iltis-n and these states' own
Dgs, has now reached out-
ous proportions. Yet most
the international community,
including manv Western dem-
ocracies, have decided either to
join the anti-Israel bandwagon
or to remain silent.
THE LATEST example.of the
new immorality came last Fri-
day. The UN Human Rights
Commission, meeting in Geneva,
overwhelmingly approved a
resolution accusing Israel of
committing "war crimes" in the
territories captured during the
1967 Six-Day War. This resolu-
tions, SDonsored by seven "non-
aligned" countries, but clearly
inspired by the Arab states, was
passed by a vote of 23 to 1 with
8 abstentions. Only the United
States opposed it. America's
Representative Leonard Gar-
ment denounced the motion as
"inflammatory and one-sided."
But America's allies abandoned
Britain, France, Italy, West
Germany, Austria, Canada, Cos-
ta Rica and Uruguay abstained,
disappointing Israelis, Amer-
icans, and men of goodwill in
Iheir own countries.
In true "Alice in Wonderhnd"
fashion, the resolution charged
Isrr.'.li authority with many
"war crimes." including illegal
mass arrests, ill-treatment of
the Arab population, interfer-
ence with religious freedoms
and practices, and "the hin-
drance of the exercise bv the
population of the occupied ter-
ritories of their rights to na-
ti-ml education and cultural
life." These allegations coma
from totalitarian police states
where freedom is unknown and
repression is a way of life.
THE ONLY way to combat
the "big lie" technique is with
the truth. And the facts of this
r tatter sneak for themselves. Is-
.ael's militarv occupation has
orobablv been the most b2n?-
volent in history. The adminis-
t :red areas are open to the free
inspection of anyone wishin? to
visit them. There is complete
religious freeJom. Since 1967,
the standard of living in the
territories has improved con-
Arab prisoners, mostly terror-
ists convicted in a court of law
and represented by counsel,
have been continuously visited
by the International Red Cross.
The head of an IRC committee,
Mr. J. Morellon, who went to
Israel and the occupied terri-
tories in 1970 to inspect jails,
concluded after visiting a Beer-
sheba orison housing Arab ter-
rorists: "If there must be pris-
ons, then may they all be like
this one."
There is no summary incar-
ceration in Israel, and suspected
terrorists are guaranteed trial
and full recourse to appeal. Is-
rael does not apply the death
penaltv no matter how terrible
the crime. The only exception
was Nazi war criminal Adolph

Forces Two-Chapter Formation
At a special reorganization
meeting in Orlando, sponsored
by the Florida Region of Hadas-
sah, it was voted to create two
chanters of the North Broward
Chapter. Esther (Mrs. Ralph)
Cannon, president, represented
the chapter at the meeting.
The second chapter will be
located in West Broward, and
will include the Blvma (Mar-
gate), Orly (Holiday Springs),
Herzl (Bermuda/Oakbrook) and
Rayus (Tamarac) groups.
The groups retained in the

Chai (Pompano Beach), Kadi-
mah (Deerfield), Golda Meir
(Palm-Aire). and Sabra (Light-

The North Broward Chapter
board followed up the regional
vote with its own vote approv-
ing the two-chapters formation.
It was not an easy decision.
The members have formed close
personal friendships and senti-
ment could not be ignored.
However, Mrs. Cannon em-
phasized, emotions must be
waived in favor of Hadassah's
I progress and expansion. She re-
1 viewed the rapid growth, made
possible only by the creation
of groups in the various geo-
graphical areas. The Chapter
went on the group plan in 1973
with a total of three groups and
333 members. Today the North
Broward Chapter boasts ten
groups and 2,500 members.

er increase in Hadassah mem-
bership with the establishment
of two separate chanters: North
Broward and West Broward."

ORT Broward Region Holds
Mother to Another Luncheon
The Broward Region of

their fourth annual Mother to
Another luncheon for the So-
cial Assistance Program, with
over 800 women in attendance,
on Feb. 17.
Mrs. Esther Slabin, chairper-
son of the day, said, "the Social
Assistance Program was found-
ed in 1948 by a delegation of
Women's American ORT on a
routins inspection to North Af-
rica, when they visited the ORT
school in Casablanca, Morocco.
The children were covered with
sores, scalps diseased, under-
nourished ai.d clothed in rags.
These women felt that no hu-
man being could go to school
and be taught a trade if he
didn't eat nutritious meals, sleep
in a bed, or wear decent cloth-
es." Mrs. Slabin continued:
"Without Social Assistance it
would be impossible for the

"Since ORT began 95 years ago,
we can indeed be proud and

"We are confident," she added,
"that in a concerted effort em-
bracing our tasks successfully
and expeditiously the results
will be one of a greater degree
than ever before. The expression
on the faces of our students and
the gratitude of our graduates
are accolades, not yet written

co-ordinated by the
Greater Miami Rabbinical Association
Dr. Max A. Lipschitz Raobi Robert J. Orkand

devoted to discussion of themes and issues relevant to Jewish life past and present
Antecedents of Anti-Semitism:
Insights into Purim
Samuel M. Isaacs
The holiday of Purim com-
memorates the deliverance of
the Jewish people from their
age-old enemy, the Amalekites.
We first encounter this nation
when thev ambush the Jews as
they made their wav across the
desert toward Canaan. The To-
rah tells us in the book of Deu-
teronomy (25:17-19) that the
Amalekites "smote the hind-
most of thee, all that were en-
feebled in thy rear, when thou
wast faint and weary; and he
(Amalek) feared not God."
The reason for the Amalekite
enigma. The Jews posed no
enimga. The Jews posed no
military threat to Amalek, for
they were merely passing by
their territory. The Amalekites
had nothing to gain of a mate-
rial nature through their assault
on the stragglers, for these
represented the very young and
very old who would not have
been burdened with carrying
valuable possessions. The rabbis
explain that this completely ir-
rational act was fostered by
"sinas chinam," blind and il-
logical hate.
The confrontation between
Amalek and Israel involves
much more than an isolated
event in ancient Jewish history.
It represents a war between im-
placable adversaries possessing
opposing ideologies with the
goal of each beiqs the complete
destruction of the other.
PROOF OF the deeper signifi-
cance of the controversy be-
tween Amalek and Israel may
be seen by the comment of
Moses in Exodus (17:16) "And
he said: "The hand upon the
throne of the Lord: the Lord
will have war with Amalek from
In the book of Judges we read
over and over again of how the
Amalekites united with other
Canaanite nations to attack Is-
rael (6:3, 33 and 7:12). It also
comes as no surprise to learn
that it was an Amalekite who
killed King Saul (II Samuel,
Chapter 1).
David confronts the Amale-
kite and asks him "How was not
thou afraid to put forth thy
hand to destroy the Lord's
anointed?" But, as we shall soon
see, the Amalekites always rep-
resented a challenge to the very
existence of the Jewish nation
and certainly to the King who
was the actual symbol of their
The Amalekites have been the
antithesis of the Jewish people.
The latter nation has always
represented justice, peace, light
and life. The former has stood
as a symbol of corruption, war,
darkness and death.
THE MESSAGE which the
Jew has brought to the world
is "Righteousness, righteous-
ness shalt thou pursue," where-
as the Amalekites have neglect-
ed Godliness. It is in the light
of this analysis of the two na-
tions that we can better under-
stand the significance of Purim.
In Sanhedrin 20a we read that
God gave the Jews three com-
mandments which are interde-
pendent for the final achieve-
ment of all three. These com-
mandments are (1) to select a
king: (2) to destroy the Amale-
kites, and (3) to build the Tem-
ple, all of which were to be
performed in the order given.
The interdependence rests in
that the major purpose of the
king was to unify the Jewish
people in their war with Ama-
lek. Only after Amalek was de-
stroyed could the Temple be
built. As long as the Amalekites
and their Godless philosophy
was powerful, the Temple could
not exist.
The onlv way in which Ama-
lek, the embodiment of evil,
could be destroyed, however,
was through an Israel clean of
the guilt of sin. A confronta-
tion of evil against good would
then take place, and God would
choose the victor.
THE LORD promises the Jew-
ish people in Exodus (17:14)
that "I will utterly blot out the
remembrance of Amalek," and
yet in Deuteronomy (25:19) He
commands "thou shalt blot out
the remembrance of Amalek,"
God Himself promises to final-
ly destroy Amalek, but He will
use Israel as His tool.
However, as is mentioned
above, Israel must first be sin-
less before it can hope to win
the conflict with Amalek. That
nation is strong when Israel is
morally weak. The first attack
unon the Jewish people by Ama-
lk was made immediately after
the Jews had rebelled at Mas-
sah and Meribah.
At the time of this confronta-
tion, we read that when Moses
raised un his hands in prayer
to his Father in Heaven, the
Jewish people prevailed, but
when his hands were not raised
in plea for God's help against
the enemv. the Jews began to
lose (see Rosh Hashanah 29a).
Thus we also read that King
Saul, who has not lived up to
his duties as King over Israel,
is unable to defeat the Amale-
kites, but is instead felled by
one of them. David, on the other
hand, succeeds in defeating
Amalek, for "David strength-
ened himself in the Lord his
God" and took counsel of God
(I Samuel. Ch. 30).
IN THE STORY of Purim we
meet once again with the arch-
foe of the Jewish people, Ha-
inan the Agagite. a descendant
of Amalek. Naturally the Ama-
lekites were strong at this time,
as is evidenced by the prior
destruction of the Temple due
to the iniquities of the Jewish
Haman displays the age-old
ruthless hate for the Jews when,
although he may have good rea-
son in his own mind to dislike
Mordecai, he finds it, however,
"contemptible in his eyes to lay
hands on Mordecai alone; for
they had made known to him
the people of Mordecai. ."
17 2ADAR -6:12
Mordecai, on the other hand,
has recognized the growth of
the Amalekites (for don't we
read of thousands who are later
killed by the Jews in battle?),
and despite his belief that, if
necessary, help will come to the
Jews from God, Who has sworn
to blot out Amalek, he is never-
theless determined to see to it
that Esther becomes Queen,
thus accomplishing the first in
the group of three command-
ments which will lead to the
destruction of Amalek and the
rebuilding of the Temple, the
symbol of the spiritual regnera-
tion and elevation of Israel.
Once Esther has achieved this
position, she commands the
Jews to fast and pray for their
deliverance, to raise their status
spiritually, and we find that as
a result of this self-elevation the
people are saved. Soon after
this event the second Temple is
built, for once again Amalek has
been wiped out.
There follows, however, an-
other moral decline amongst the
Jews, and the Second Temple
is destroyed in 70 CE. Again the
Amalekites become stronger and
ever bolder in their attempt to
annihilate the Jews.
THIS EFFORT culminated in
the attempt by Hitler, a direct
descendant of Haman and the
Amalekites in spirit if not in
bodv, to commit genocide
against the Jews. He failed and
the Jewish state now battles all
those who, echoing the Amale-
kite slogans, would like to "push
Israel into the sea."
Perhaps the state of Israel
mav prove to be the catalyst
which will unite all factions of
the Jewish people so that the
Temple may be rebuilt and Is-
rael serve once again as a "light
unto the nations."
In that day we may hope to
behold the vision of Isaiah come
to pass when all the nations of
th* world "shall not hurt or
destroy in all My holy moun-
tain; for the earth shall be full
of the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea."

in this country wis "somewhat
like a wild, uncultivated plain.

Two lambs offered as a sacrifice in atonement
for a sin.
"And he shall bring forfeit unto the Lord for
his sin which he hath sinned" (Lev. 5.6).
VAYIKRAGod called to Moses from the tent
of meeting and revealed the sacrificial laws. The
burnt-offering was to consist of a male animal with-
out blemish; if it be a fowl, it was to be a turtle-
dove or a young pigeon. The purpose of this offer-
ing, which was to be completely burned, was to
make atonement for evil thoughts. The meal-offer-
ing was to consist of fine flour, raw, cooked, or
stewed, generally intended as a free-will offering.
The peace-offering, of cattle or sheep, either male
or female, was another free-will offering, or vow,
offered in the name of a family. The sin-offering
was intended to make amends for sins committed
by error. Different categories of individuals and
groups were to sacrifice different animals for sin-
offerings. The anointed priest and the congregation
offered a young bullock, the prince a he-goat, a
common person a she-goat. The person who touch-
ed an unclean object, or failed to keep a vow, must
bring a female lamb or a female goat for a sin-
offering; and if he could not afford either, he must
bring two young pigeons or turtle-doves the first
as a burnt-offering, the second as a sin-offering. A
ram served as a guilt-offering in the case of a vio-
lation of a negative ("Thou shalt not") command-
ment, or in cases of theft of articles set aside as

|Y LAST week. Foreign
Magazine revealed that,
his step-by-step negotia-
feadmg to the Sinai in-
accord, Kissinger was
the Israelis one thing
Je Arabs another.
Israel, he pledged U.S.
tion to the principles em-
in UN Res. 242. To the
he pledged a Nixon-Ford
t spans both administra-
that the U.S. favors un-
onal Israeli withdrawal
ratls pre-1967 borders.
There is nothing really new
in this Kissinger diplomacy,
which ought more accurately
to be called duplicity. What was
new, or at least more recent
in the naturr of his reaction,
was Kissinger's growing imper-
iousness. Kissinger did not deny
trie truth of Edward R. F.
Sheehan's charge in Foreign
Policy Magazine.
INSTEAD, the State Depart-
ment flatly branded it a "grave
violation" of the "highest con-
fidence" shades of the Kis-
singer tantrum following the
public discussion in Israel of
his latest non belligerency
tack, a tantrum he, President
Ford and the State Department
have denied, although there is
good evidence that Ford made
a threatening call to Premier
Rabin about this "grave viola-
tion" of the "highest confi-
dence" immediately as Israeli
newspapers began to report and
editorialize on the non-belli-
gerency negotiations.
Pondering this mania for
secrecy over the weekend, I
noted that the Arabian Amer-
ican Oil cartel thieves would be
in Panama to seal our consu-
mer doom even further, and
good old predictable Kissinger,
in Atlanta on Saturday, denied
he knew anything about an
ARAMCO gathering in Panama
City or anywhere else.
BUT HIGH Priest Sheikh Ah-
med Yamani's plane landed at
Tyndal Air Force Base (a fed-
eral installation, in case one
needs to be reminded), and
Pentagon plutocrats conceded
that he was then flown by heli-
copter to the Yacht and Coun-
try Club on Panama City Beach,
where t h e petrobillionaires
would be deliberating.
Furthermore, the club was
crawling with U.S. Secret Serv-
ice agents, FBI and U.S. Mar-
shals (this, despite the fact
that ARAMCO business cannot
possibly be construed as in the
public domain.)
Kissinger's outright lying and
frequent rages have long been
documented. It is secrecy as
his natural diplomatic habitat
decorated in the best Nixoma-
nic style that emerges as his
most recent pattern and sheds
the ultimate light on just how
he and Nixon hit it off so well.
HOW COULD a shy, acade-
mic Kissinger find happiness
in the Watergate White House?
The answer is that the ad-
jectives don't apply. The answer
is that he shared the White
House's emotional pathology
particularly if one is to lay any
credence in the -.possibilities
concerning his alleged role in
the fulmination of Tevdlutions

(Talk about Kissinger's sancti-
monious rages on his recent

The more terrible question
is: How does Kissinger find
happiness in the White House
now? Given that his fate there
these days is less certain, the
fact is that he is still there.

AND SO we conclude that
the pathology is still there, a
commonality of entrenched dis-
ease in the Executive branch. If
Kissinger's fate is less certain,
it is merely that the nature of
the disease has changed, not
the fact of disease itself.
Whatever Gerald Ford said
about open government in tak-

clear that his mania for secrecy
may be of a different order,
but it is not different as a phi-

To Honor the Dead, and Remind the Lining
was a grey, gloomy and
somehow very fitting day. I
and a friend, armed with a
35 mm. camera and driving
the rented Opel, left Munich
for Dachau about 20 miles
away. As we left, I thought
of the story in the Interna-
tional Herald Tribune just
several days earlier about
the people in Dachau, now
a-city of 33,000 (13,000 be-
fore World War II>, who
were not interested in and
even hostile to the existence
of the memorial camp site,
its history and everpresent
I thought, on the contrary,
it should be exposed again
and again and made visible
wherever possible "to honor
the dead and remind the
MUNICH'S grand streets, the
well-built houses and well-fed
and clothed people were traf-
ficking in their clean streets
Munich the birthplace of Ger-
man fascism where in Novem-
ber, 1923, Hitler attempted a
coup d'etat beginning at the
Buergerbraeu and ending at the
Feldhernhalle, and where 11 of
his "genossen" (comrade*) were
killed while he fled in ignominy.
Now, however, that was an-
other history as we drove up
Ifland Strasse to Ise Ring, fol-
lowed the Mittlerer Ring and
finally found ourselves on Da-
chauer Strasse heading towards
that medieval town.
But the roads were heavy
with modern traffic, and on
either side was all the evidence
of a city well-heeled. Farther
out, the landscape thinned, and
after 25 kilometers, we saw the
KZ (Konzentrationslaagercon-
centration camp), sign right too
late and passed it.
WE MADE an illegal U-turn
and stopped to ask a gas at-
tendant where the KZ was. He
muttered an unfriendly direc-
tion in his thick Bavarian ac-
cent, and we took off to the
sign "Gedenkstaette" (memorial
site). A bare road led us to a
parking area just outside the
barbed wire of the camp.
My friend and I pulled up
almost simultaneously with an-
other car driven by a German,
and when we got out together,
I asked him if he were visiting
the city, and he said he was
from Munich. He was about 45,
and I asked what he thought for
Dachau and its times. He call-
ed-it a "dirtx history."
I said as we stood there in the
biting winter cold where likely,
hundreds of "Kazettlings" (in-
mates) must have marched into
the camp and their iiirtmpt
death; that this would never
happen again.
THE MAN said, shrugging,
"Who: knows? The Nazis win
come again because.there .
much 'communismtrs' in the "
country." He cited the Bader-
Meinhof gang, and I said they
were anarchists not commun-
ists, and the man said, no, they
are communists and that the
high schools were full of Reds.
His words had the smell of
Hitler again, and they depress-
ed me.-My friend and I walked
past the barbed wire, and I
could I almost visualize the
Sunt, sickened faces and claw-
e fingers pressed to and grip-
ping the interstices.
Ahead were some buildings;
one was a museum, and inside
a sleeoy guard in a green uni-
form sat at the door. We didn't
stay long; the effect of putting
such things together was not
real, and we moved into the
long and wide field where,
flanked by watch-towers once
machine gun manned, there
were two sections of oblong-
numbered areas where the bar-
racks housing the inmates used
to be.
ON THE right, as we moved
in, was a moat, now a dry ditch
with patches of snow, which
separated the field from the
fence shielded by trees. They
were bare of foliage in the win-
ter and hardly shielded the
camp of whose activities peo-
ple used to say, we didn't know
what was happening.
A plaque, somehow aged and
ageless, said, "Plus Jamais, Nie
Wieder, Never Again," and the
same, I guessed, in Russian
which I couldn't read.
Two young men passed our
way and turned out to be Aus-
tralians on their way to Inns-
bruck for the Olympics. I stop-
ped briefly to talk to them.
Dachau was before their time,
and they were at a loss for
words and one could only mut-
ter, "What a horrible mess."
ONCE AGAIN, I surveyed the
field and invoked from my own
memory and experience in the
time, the rows of barracks, the
guttural German commands, the
frenetic activity for those still
then among the living.
At the opposite, end of the
field, were three monuments
Protestant, Catholic and Jewish
symbolic of the religion of all
the people who were annihilated
there. Some nuns, who stopped
to pray over one barracks site.
moved in the Catholic memorial
which had a church in the rear.
It was called Hettige Bhrt
(holy blood). I and my friend,
a non-Jew, stopped before the
Jewish memorial, built in 1965,
for a quick moment, not as
much in prayer as in recall. We
moved on past another moat
and met twoj'eung men coming
our way, dressed in winter
sport clothing.
I stopped them, too, and ask-
ed where they were from. Nor-
way, one said, and I asked what
they thought of the camp. "Gro-
tesque," one said. We talked
very briefly and went our sep-
arate ways, they away from the
crematoria and we towards
BUT THE word "grotesque"
rang in my ears. My friend and
I passed the "Grave of the Ten
Thousand Unknown," to an area
once used as a shooting range
and where executions were per-
formed. In back of the range
was the blood ditch. Turning
around again and surveying the
area, it was all so difficult to
believe. The surroundings were
now so bland, even Christmasy,
with the snow.
The term, '"moving," which
a woman used about the memo-
rial as she left, hardly began to
reach the enormity of the bes-
tiality. It escaped comprehen-
sion as though momentarily it
would be necessary for the
jack-booted Nazi janissaries to
come out of that history com-
manding respect for their real-
Nevertheless, a religious state-
ment stood in defense of the
truth: "Bat the souls of the
righteous are as the hand of
God and there shall no torment
touch them." Now ahead were
the crematoria and we advanced
towards them, I with some dis-
taste, and my friend with a
kind of professional eagerness
to record its details as well as
absorb it for the first time as a
phenomenon which had occur-
red before her birthdate.
The "Brausebad" (shower),
which was used as a decoy to
get inmates to enter, ultimately
to be gassed, was just a bare
room. Further in were the
ovens themselves, standing
there so benignly as though
they once had baked bread.
OVERHEAD were solid be
with hanging cord i where, I
learned for the first time, some
inmates were hung to death,
perhaps simultaneously with the
burning of .others. The clatter

sounded echoingly. and for a
frigtitening moment I thought it
was the S3 coming, bat it was
just the police guard having a
look around.
There were faint scratchings
on the wall, and I didn't bother
to read them because I knew
what they would say. The cam-
era clicked repeatedly, and I
tried to personalize this, in the
Germany I knew after the war
as a soldier, in the memory of
two of my late wife's sisters,
one of whom was killed in Aus-
I BECAME impatient and
wanted to leave, uncomfortable
and frightened in the square,
bare block buildings, but I had
to wait until the pictures were
taken. The interest superseded
my needs, although I asked for
one special shot.
Outside, there were now two
German guards, one young, one
older, a Czech. We talked, and
the Czech said he had been a
POW tn the Soviet Union during
the war, as though that would
get my sympathy.
The young man was from Da-
chau and said all this had hap-
pned before he was born and
knew nothing of the times. The
older cop said, "We knew no-
thing. Those who did and talk-
ed, ended ud here."
HE WANTED to put a happy
note on the proceedings. "Three
of them stayed on in Dachau
and became rich." I thought I
heard a familiar theme. "Jews?"
"No," he said. "Communists.
They made business. But one
died recently from too much
drinking." We talked on farther.
The afternoon was drawing to
an end. The camp closed at five,
and it was a quarter to.
I looked for my friend who
was nowhere to be seen. I look-
ed down the long grey field
where the barracks once stood
and became scared all over
again as if the jack-boots would
suddenly appear, and I would
be locked in, to remain and suf-
fer the same fate, with body a
well as mind.
FINALLY, running and carl
era swinging, my friend appear-
ed, and we left the camp.
I took one last look. It was
cold with unremembered his-
tory, and I said, one must do
this again and again and keep
this death alive.
We walked to the car, and
across the lot was a ball field
where some young Germans
were playing soccer as if no-
thing had ever happened.

5,000 Galilee Acres for Housing
Cabinet decided without oppo-
iiion to authorize the requisi-
tion of 5.000 acres of land in
Galilee half of it from Arab
owners for housing projects
aimed at increasing the Jew
Jewish population of the region.
The decision is expected to
stir serious opposition among
Arab landowners even thou
would ba "handsonv
compensated. Some Jewish land-
affected by the deci-
l are also expected to object.
HOUSING Minister Avrahim
Ofer and Shmucl Toledano, the
government's advisor on Arab
affairs, said the 5,000 acres was
the minimum area feasible for
the projected new development.
They, recalled that original plans
called for the requisition of
much larger areas and that the
Arab land in question was pre-
sently neither cultivated nor
built upon.
Government sources said that
compensation rates would not
be based on the present condi-
tion of the land described as
"scrubland" but on its poten-
tial value as housing sites.
THEY SAID that "wherever
possible" the Arab owners
would be compensated with al-
ternate land elsewhere but not
far from their present holdings.
There was no intention on the
government's part to evict
Arabs from settled land, the
sources insisted.
The land which the govern-
ment intends to requisition is
located near Nazareth and IUith
(Upper Nazareth) and at Car-
Ofer said the plans called for
the development of Carmiel
from a village of 8,000 to a
township with a population of
New housing for Arabs in
Maker village near Acre is in-
cluded in the development plan.
About 2,500 dunams (625 acres)
will be requisitioned for that
ANOTHER 4,000 dunams (1,-
000 acres) of land belonging to
Jews on the outskirts of Safad
will be taken over for new hous-
ing projects. The Safad Jews
are expected to object as voci-
ferously as the Arabs, govern-
ment sources said.
The Cabinet approved the
plans without a vote since the
requisition of land is within the
statutory authority of the Fi-
nance Minister.
Mapam ministers raised cer-
tain "technical" objections to
the timing of the decision. But
Mapam sources supported the
plan since the party is interest-
ed in the development of Gali-
lee and its kibbutz movement
has established new settlements
there recentlv.
NEVERTHELESS, the requisi-
tion of land in Galilee, the re-
gion where most of Israel's Arab
population lives, is bound to
have political repercussions and
is expected to be used by Is-
rael's enemies as an example
of alleged mistreatment of Is-
raeli Arabs.
Countering such claims, To-
ledano told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the Cabi-
net's latest decision should be
viewed in the context of a series
of decisions taken which repre-
sent a trend toward a more en-
lightened and liberalized treat-
ment of Arabs in Israel. He
mentioned among those deci-
sions the army's agreement to
restrict its training programs in
"Zone nine," a 4,500-dunam re-
gion farmed by local Arabs who
do not possess ownership rights.
