One such person, Judy
Goodman, recorder of the Points

personally cannot go to Israel to
fight. I wanted to show my
support in a manner that would
be meaningful to me and my
family and to the Israelis. My
contribution insures that Israel
will always be strong enough to
protect her citizens and Jews
All the contributors expressed
great sorrow at the death of four
of the hostages and one of the
Israeli commandos. Col.

noted that both names of the
Israeli mean the same. "And God
gave us a gift."

by mailing additional UJA
contributions to the Jewish

so by the British and French
governments as well. Chief Rab-
bi Shlomo Goren sent urgent
appeals to the Pope, to the
World Council of Churches in
Geneva, to UN Secretary Gen-
eral Kurt Waldheim and to
President Ford. Official circles
in Jerusalem said privately that
the chances of Mrs. Bloch be-
ing found alive were slim. How-
ever, some suggested that Ugan-
dan President Idi Amin may be
holding her with the intent of
extracting some humiliating
gesture from Israel in exchange
for her safety.

by one of her sons, economist
Ilan Hartuv, was enroute to
New York to attend the wed-

Air France "air bus" was hi-

taken to the Ugandan hospital
from Entebbe Airport when she
choked on food supplied the
hostages after the landing. Her
son was among the 102 hostages

Aren't You Proud To Be Jewish Tbday?
Will You Be Proud Tomorrow?
By Barry Axler
of Greater Fort Lauderdale
We are all filled with pride over
the historic rescue by the Israelis
of the hostages held captive by
the PLO and Ugandan troops.
However, in the midst of our
pride, we can learn several im-
portant lessons from this in-
First and foremost, we saw
again that in the eyes of the
hijackers and the world it made
no difference whether the
hostages were French, American
or Israeli they were Jews.
Everyone else was allowed to
leave it was the Jewish
hostages who were kept behind.
Whether we recognize it or not,
whether we accept it or not, our
destinies and lives as Jews are
intertwined, one with the other.
We, as a people, are and will
always be one. When a Jew cries
in Jerusalem, we all cry; when a
Jew goes hungry in Fort
Lauderdale, we all go hungry;
when a Jew dies in Uganda, part
of us dies as well.
We are responsible for each
other and must act in ways to
demonstrate and carry out that
THE SECOND THING I have
discovered is that, filled with
pride and respect, people wish to
demonstrate their support for
Israel. How does one show this
support in a meaningful manner?
The answer to this question of
support and the way to
demonstrate our responsibility
for each other are one and the
same a meaningful con-
tribution to the Jewish
Through this contribution, you
make certain that Israel is strong
enough to continue to stand up to
terrorism throughout the world.
Through this contribution, you
make certain that world Jewry,
and specifically American Jewry,
is strong enough to continue its
support of Israel and Jewish life
abroad. Through your con-
tribution, you make certain that
scores of young Jews will
demonstrate their support for
Israel and Judaism in the years
You're proud to be Jewish
today. Will you be proud to be
Jewish tomorrow, when Israel
turns to us for help?
It's one thing to say we are
moved by this heroic incident
it's another actually to do
something which gives meaning
to our pride.
I urge you to take pride in
being Jewish by continuing to
support our campaign.

By RABBI DR SAMUEL J. FOX
Q: Why is the afternoon
prayer service called "Min-
A: A variety of reasons are
advanced for this name. Some
feel the name "Minchah" comes
from the verb "to lead." The
meaning would thus be that this
service, or the sacrifice which
once accompanied it, "leads" a
person to the Almighty.
Another source (Oruch ha-
Shulchan 232) claims that the
term Minchah means a "gift."
The implication is that original-
ly once a day, or one service
of prayer a day, would have
been sufficient. This would have
been an obligation and the in-
dividual would be offering the
sacrifice of the morning or the
morning prayer service as a
payment for a debt (see Maimo-
nides, Tefillah 1:2).
The Jewish tradition added
the afternoon praver as an
added obligation. This added
duty is comparatively a gift that
is offered bv the worshipper. It
la also contended that "Min-
chah" is a term which refers to
the specific time of day when
the prayer is offered. The term
would then come from a root
meaning to "rest," to "recline"
or to "decline." The meaning,
then, is that this is the time of
day when the sun descends or
declines from its height reached
during the noon hour.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Laucterdale
Many important personalities and organizations
are rightly indicting UN Secretary General Kurt Wald-
heim's instantaneous reaction to the Israeli raid on En-
tebbe as a "violation" of Uganda's integrity.
What about the terrorists' violation of the human
rights of those whom they hijacked? What about the
violation by Idi Amin of the right to security of the
102 hostages whom he separated from the 140-odd other
non-Jewish hostages ana sent on their way?
What about the UN's silence, and Dr. Waldheim's
silence, in response to the hijacking and the long,
agonizing week that followed the hijacking, during
which "only" Israelis and Jews were being abused?
Why Dr. Waldheim's sudden burst of energy and
oratory when the rescue operation took place?
We join the personalities and organizations indict-
ing Waldheim and calling for his resignation.
Dr. Kissinger's Campaign
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is correct in
pressing for international legislation against hijacking
of airplanes. It is not certain, even if the legislation
is passed, that nations, particularly in the Third World-
Arab-Soviet bloc, would comply.
But at least it would be a beginning. It would
mean that signatories to the accord would deny land-
ing privileges to terrorists on such phony "humanitar-
ian" grounds as Uganda's Idi Amin proposed as his
reason for sheltering them, hence putting a substantial
crimp into their contemptible operations.
Dr. Kissinger is zeroing in on the United Nations
as the logical place for his latest campaign. We hold
out little hope that the Third World-Arab-Soviet bloc
there will be any more responsible in this matter than
it has been in others in the past.
Still, now is the time. Even among Israel's ene-
mies, there is hardly anything but profound admira-
tion, silent or not, for the Entebbe raid. Joseph Pola-
koff, chief of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Bureau
in Washington, reports that on his trip to India while
the rescue operation took place, he found "overwhelm-
ing support for Israel's achievement among Hindus
and Sikhs" whom he questioned.
Now is the time, and we wish Dr. Kissinger well.
Despite the continued opposition of the Ford Ad-
ministration, the evidence continues to pile up that
strong legislation is needed to prevent the compliance
of American business firms with the Arab boycott
against Israel. Voluntary measures have not worked.
Treasury Secretary William Simon, in a recent
appearance before the House International Relations
Committee, opposed any new legislation as a hindrance
to Middle East peace efforts and against American in-
terests in the United States and the Middle East. "It
is our considered judgement that confrontational poli-
cies will not move to remove the boycott and could un-
dermine the delicate search for peace in that troubled
region of the world," Simon told the congressmen.
No one wants peace in the Mideast more than Is-
rael and American Jews. But it is outrageous for an
American governmental official to argue that peace
will be blocked unless the United States abandons its
opposition to discrimination and its principles of de-
Jewish leaders have long argued that if American
firms stand up to the Arabs the latter will back down
because they need the economic power and know-how
that only the United States can give them.
Dr. Arthur F. Burns, chairman of the Federal Re-
serve Board, told a congressional subcommittee, and
we agree, if diplomacy will not end American com-
pliance with the boycott, then Congress has to pass the
laws that will do it.

fiday, July 23, 1976
^HAT WOULD have happen-
ed were the debate over the
reappointment of Gen. Brown
as chairman of the Joint Chiefs
to have taken place after the
Entebbe raid rather than before
The answer is, of course, in
the realm of pure speculation,
but the number of votes cast
against the General was sur-
prisingly large, given that con-
firmation seemed a foregone

able that he might have won

possibly that he might not have
won at all, although I am con-
vinced of the former, while the
latter seems too much like an
At issue was the General's
remarks on June 28 before the
Senate Committee on Armed
Services in which he reneated
his stand in 1974 that the
American Jewish community
"has undue influence on the
Congress of the United States."
The first time out, Gen.
Brown apologized for such
seemingly anti-Semitic decora-
tions to his cake as that Jews
control the American press and
the American banking estab-
A BATTERY of facts it wcl
to prove him wrong that led to
his recanting. But obviously, he
has not changed his mind oth-
erwise and, in all frankness, I
would have been disappointed
if he had.
Apart from Brown's biagga-
docio manner, which I find both
inexcusable and dangerous in
a man now occupying his high
position for a second time, all I
would have demanded from
Brown on this second occasion
of his demonstration of the
simplistic, demagogic military
mind would be an explanation
of his qualifying term, "undue."
The Congressional Record of
July 1 features an address to
the Senate by Florida's Richard
Stone who feared that, without
explanation, the General's view
would henceforward "have their
own undue influence over our
IN URGING a "nay" vote
against confirmation, Sen. Stone
reminded his colleagues "that
the first time someone does
something to you, shame on
him. But the second time some-
one does something to you,
shame on us."
Stone did not want "shame
on us" in letting Brown off the
hook once more, but he missed
the point entirely when he re-
minded the Senate of Brown's
apparent lack of contrition in
his June 28 statement.
"In all candor, I do," the
General declared on June 28 tp
those members of the Senate
Committee on Armed Services
who questioned him on wheth-
er he did, indeed, believe in the
existence of "undue Jewish in-
fluence" on the Congress.
IT IS not only Stone who
missed the point. Most of us
miss the point in rebutting such
arguments and repeatedly.
There is nothing furtive, il-
legal or immoral in lobbying.
Ideally, the lobbyist supplies in-
formation on a variety of issues
to "enlighten" congressmen so
that they should be able to con-
tribute to the legislative proc-
ess more knowledgeably.
Capitol Hill is full of lobby-
ists all the time, all of them
well-known and all of them reg-
istered with the government as

What IS furtive, illegal or im-
moral is the manner in which
some congressmen respond to
lobbying tactics. And in such
cases therefore, the furtive, il-

Does Brown recognize these
important distinctions, or is he
simply raising the Nixon-Agnew
anti-Semitic spectre of a "Jew-
ish cabal"? That should have
been and should be in the fu-
ture the issue for those who
would defend American Jews
and Israel against such absurd-
ities as Brown deals in.
AS TO the original question:
Would Entebbe have made a
difference in the Brown con-
I believe the answer is yes
because it would have weaken-
ed the Brown "warning" to
America's "security minded"
about Jewish influence.
Neither Jews nor Israel are a
threat to the security of Amer-
ica as Brown implied. But Sen.
Stone's own argument against
the Brown confirmation is a
perfect illustration that you can
neither lick 'em nor join 'em
on Brown's terms without do-
ing more harm than good, for
Stone is, himself, one of Amer-
IN HIS objection to the con-
firmation, Stone held that he
must be taken seriously because
he has "a 100 percent record

Sui generis, Brown's testi-

a question of Jewish influence
in behalf ot Israel, not of the
Nevertheless, there can be no
doubt that the initial shock of
the 1973 Yom Kippur War ob-
scured its oucome and showed
Israel to be a security liability
even if not a downright threat.
BUT ENTEBBE has at least
for the moment recast Israel in
her more traditional superman
image. In fact, the raid makes
pipsqueaks of the west as a
whole its servile acquies-
cence to Arab terrorism.
After the raid, there would
surely be greater impatience
with Brown's testimony and
surely even more votes against
his confirmation than the sur-
prisingly large number cast
against him in the first place.
