because the statement appears to be an
fee of President Carter's public pledges of
for the principles of a negotiated set-
| within the framework of UN resolution
the American interest nor the safety of
ally Israel is served by the Soviet
center-stage. Our country needs a
land stable Middle East. The USSR's
record demonstrates it seeks only tension, in-
stability and conflict. That is why it instigated
the Six Day War in 1967 (by giving the Arabs
false reports of Israeli troop movements, touching
off the Arab blockade and expulsion of UN forces)
and the Yom Kippur War of 1973 (by its huge
arms shipments to Egypt and Syria and by
urging other Arab states to join the attack when
it appeared that Israel might be crushed).
TODAY THE Kremlin's favorite client in the
Middle East is the murderous band of teirorists
that calls itself the Palestine Liberation
Organization. To celebrate the legitimacy con-
ferred on it by the U.S.-Soviet statement, the
PLO on Sunday planted a bomb in the Jerusalem
bus depot that wounded three civilians.

"extraneous issue" of

originally defined was the ter-

writing of separate treaties

treaties with Iraq and Saudi

Locke to Head
78 UJA Drive
Fort Lauderdale Correspondent
Charles Locke of Woodlands, a retired Wisconsin and
Minnesota industrialist and a long-time leader in local, national
and overseas Jewish causes who is a vice president of the Fort
Lauderdale Jewish Federation, has been named general chair-
man of the Federation's 1978 United Jewish Appeal (UJA)
Locke's appointment was announced by Jacob Brodzki,
president of the Federation, following an earlier action by the
Federation's board of directors in electing him as general chair-
man. The announcement came on the eve of the departure of the
Jewish Federation's 80-member UJA Mission to Israel. Locke
is the Mission chairman.
BRODZKI announced at the same time that the local 1978
UJA would have a goal of $2.5 million plus. The 1977 campaign
was headed by Sen. Samuel Greenberg, a lawyer and political
figure who retired after better than 30 years of service in the
New York State Legislature. He led the Federation UJA cam-
paign to an all-time record of more than $1.8 million.

In light of this statement,
there is bafflement in his
contradictory answer to the
preceding question that

Nations Resolution 242 as a
basis for their involvement.

Carter seemed to further
water down the requirements
for PLO participation, b
saying that "if the PLO
should go ahead and say 'we
endorse UN Resolution 242,
but we don't think it
adequately addresses the
Palestinian issue because it
only refers to refugees and
we think we have a further
interest than that' that
would suit us okay. We
would begin to meet with
and work with the PLO."
This clearly runs contrary
to the terms of the U.S.-Is-
rael memorandum of Sept. 1.
1975, in which the United
States agreed to "continue to
adhere to its present policy
with respect to the PLO,
whereby it will not recognize
or negotiate with the PLO so

Who Are the Palestinians?
Who are the "Palestinians,' what is the PLO, what's the
meaning both to Israel and in real terms of a Palestinian
state made up of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? We read
every day of all of this, and the terms begin to blur. Here is a
brief description and analysis of all that's involved in these
fateful terms and issues as put together from various sources:
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee fAIPAC), the
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations, the National Community Relations Advisory
Council (NCRAC), and the national United Jewish Appeal
last 30 years because of political,
ethnic, or religious pressures.
Every one of the non-Arab coun-
tries that received a flood of
refugees did their best to resettle
the new arrivals. On the other
hand, in most of the Arab coun-
tries that the Palestinians moved
into, strenuous efforts were made
to prevent or to limit the resettle-
ment of the refugees. The reason
for this unprecedented callous-
ness to their own brethren on the
part of many Arab leaders was
avowedly political. If the Arab
refugees were to find new jobs
and new homes in Syria,
Continued on Page 15
The most reliable estimate of
the number of Arab men, women
and children who left their homes
in Palestine during 1948 is
between 550,000 and 600,000. In
the Middle East itself, the exodus
of Jews from Arab lands has been
even larger than the flight of
Arabs from Israel. In 1948 there
were nearly 900,000 in Arab lands
ranging from Iraq to Morocco.
Today, there are less than 35.000.
There is, however, one factor
which distinguishes the bulk of
the Arab refugees from the
millions of people who have left
their homes and countries in the

Quotable Quotes
"The Jewish people were con-
ceived in justice and born in jus-
tice. This is the essence of our
faith and has been since that
moment at Sinai thousands of
years ago. Our belief in
righteousness for each Jew is
always in our hearts. And so, how
can we accept sub-standard
living conditions in a Jewish
State? How can we accept
slipping educational standards?
Let us all rededicate ourselves to
the justice of our cause and to the
noble goas we have in our
hearts." Prime Minister
Menachem Begin
"The people of Israel are
responsible people; we are not
hardliners. We are responsible for
the peace of the Jewish people."
Moshe Dayan
"Jews are not accidental vic-
tims. We have been deliberately
chosen for slaughter. Our collec-
tive existence in the world is an
obstacle to barbarism. So long as
we exist, with our moral code and
our set of values, and our belief in
justice and righteousness, we are
a bone in the throat of all those
who seek to reorganize the
world." Rabbi Herbert A.
Friedman, former national UJA
executive vice chairman.
"Last night. Mr. Prime Minis-
ter, as part of the Jerusalem civil
guard, I protected your home
but that is a fair trade, since you
protect all of our lives." Bert
Rabinowitz, formerly of Boston.

decisions taken by the Labor
government. Thus Labor's
criticism of those decisions has
an unconvincing ring.
EVEN WITH regards to
foreign affairs the Labor Party is
having a hard time winning
public sympathy. The Begin
government deliberately strives
to focus its foreign policy on
those issues in which Labor
shares almost the same views,
such as the complete negation of
the PLO as a negotiating partner,
the absolute rejection of an in-
dependent Palestinian state and
the firm refusal to withdraw to
the 1967 lines.
Labor's ideological and per-
sonal problems are endangering
its continued role as a major force
in the Israeli political arena. The
personal problems derive from
the bitter rivalry between Rabin,
AUon and Peres over the party
Though Peres was elected
almost unanimously as Labor
chairman before the elections he
is not supported by Rabin or
Allon. Rcbin recently accused
Peres publicly of having un-
dermined him as Prime Minister.

faction in Labor, from which
Allon derives his main support,
asked, with bitter sarcasm, why
Peres should lead the party while
most of the ex-Rafi faction
which is considered Peres'
constituency has found its
place in the Likud bloc. The
reference is to the La Am (State
List) faction in Likud, which is
comprised mostly of ex-Rafi men,
including Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan.
But the sharp differences
between the three central figures
in Labor are not the sole
manifestations of the party's
personal crisis. Most of its
veteran and most prominent
politicians are nearing the end of
their political careers. People like
the former Finance Minister
Yehoshua Rabinowitz, the once
influential Minister-Without-
Portfolio Israel Galili, former
Histadrut Secretary-General
Yitzhak Ben-Aharon, and former
Justice Minister Haim Zadok are
men in their sixties who lack the
enthusiasm, the ambition and the
capability to pull the party back
onto the high road to power.
The ideological crisis of the
party is reflected in its almost
frantic casting about for a stand
whenever a controversial political
issue arises. The Labor Party has
no united approach towards the
problem, territorial

Democratic Movement For
Change (DMC). A third section
represented by MK Amos
Haddar, brother of Commerce
Minister Yigal Hurwitz and a
cousin of Foreign Minister
Dayan, urges the establishment
of a government of a national
unity under Menachem Begin.
The Labor Party also suffers
from severe financial problems, a
legacy of its election route. It has
organizational difficulties too and
as a result morale at the grass
roots level is at its lowest ebb.

Editor's Corner
Jimmy Has Changed
Where >s the Jimmy Carter who. during the campaign
for the presidency, appeared in a New Jersey synagogue to
set to rest the mind of the American Jewish community
that seemed not to trust his attitude towards Jews and
Your Book is my Book, he said then. Your God is my
And. my GodL is just about all there is left to say at this
point after the President s joint statement with the Soviet
Union Saturday night having to do with Israel, the Arabs
and the Middle East.
Mr. Carter s blunder is not just a blunder that will hurt
the Jewish community and Israel. It will hurt every
.American, every European, every individual living in the
free world. It is a blunder equivalent to the blunder
committed by President Eisenhower in 1956. when Ike
cast the U.S. in the role of betrayer of its principal allies in
the joint Franco-British-Israeli campaign against Egypt's
seizure of the Suez Canal in contravention of the Con-
stantinople Treaty.
We opined at that time that Ike s move opened up the
gates of the Middle East to Russian influence for the first
time in modern history, and we were right.
President Carter s stabbing of the Israeli back Saturday
night sets the seal upon the 1956 invasion. It makes the
Soviets an equal partner in the new American diplomacy
that seeks to impose a Middle East settlement upon Israel
even before a Geneva conference. Why bother with a
conference now?
History Repeats Itself
President Carter has forgotten, or doesn t seem to care,
that the PLO continues to adhere to its policy aimed at
Israel s destruction. Even though there is a clearly-stated
Israeli policy that spells out Israel's refusal to deal with
the PLO for this reason, the President has gone ahead
with his messianic urge to set Israel and the .Arabs "to
The last time an American President in the name of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt acted on his messianic urge
to set other people s business to rights, the ceiling fell in
on Europe.
Together with Papa Joe" Stalin. Roosevelt divided"
Europe up between the World War II allies and Moscow
The allies went home after the war ended. But Moscow
still sits astride most of Eastern Europe
History' repeats itself. This is what Carter is doing with
Brezhnev & Co.
We Must Stand United
For those Jews who still struggle against the Likud
victory of last May. they must give up the struggle and
stand united with American Jewry, with world Jewrv
with Israel in this latest attempt to destroy a viable
independent Israeli nation.
They must stop feeling coerced by the Carter ad-
ministration s propagandists who even now continue to
leak the word that Israel has been wrested from its
democratic course by an untrustworthy Menachem Begin.
Toward week's end. the Carter administration's
propagandists were once more hard at work, on the one
hand spreading sub rosa the gospel about a "Jewish
lobby in the U.S.. on the other hand publicly offering
statements of concern about a rift between the President
and American Jewry.

Reverse Discrimination at Issue
It was 1963. the summer of our
innocence, when 250.000 Black
and white Americans waked
hand-is-hand to the Lincoln
Memorial in the great March on
Washington. The goal was civil
rights legislation to make it
illegal for any employer or
university or lunch counter to
torn away any citizen because of
the color of his skin.
The laws were paaaed but
some of the same civil rights
groups that fought segregation
now support racial quotas and
racial preferences an colleges and
universities for racial minorities
Some but not all Many of us
who took part in the civil rights
movement oppose racial
preference to get minorities in
just as we fought racial
preference to keep minorities out.
AT THE HEART of the issue

other minority group members

University of California at Davis
sought to solve this problem by a
racial quota, reserving 16 out of
100 places in its medical school
for racial minorities.
One white applicant, who was
turned down even though his
grades were better than some of
those 16. brought a lawsuit
against the university. His name
is Allan Bakke. His case will be
heard by the U.S. Supreme Court
on Cohimbus Day.
Must America discriminate
against whites in order to fulfill
the promise of equality for Blacks
and other minorities? More

It pits white against Black in a

country to the same kind of

away with as we marched for civil
rights in the '60s.
We think medical school,

professional schools set aside

American life. And it would bring
about a stratified society that

American democracy.
The break should go to the
student who had to work his way

an inferior education, or who
managed to survive a broken

the terms justice, compassion

Young, who delivered the
major address of the evening,
said, "I don't think there was
ever any real hostility in most of
the Third World toward the State
of Israel. What there was, was
hostility toward the United
States because we were in-
sensitive to the problems that
they felt most crucial. And
because of our insensitivity and
because of our strength and the
fact that we seemed almost in-
vulnerable they began to pick on
the ally that they thought was
most vulnerable.
"And so much of the hostility
of the racism and Zionism period
was not a frustration and
hostility toward Israel at all, but
a frustration and hostility toward
a powerful nation, such as the
United States, that seemed
insensitive to complications like
the Panama Canal or the price of
sugar in the Caribbean or the
means of pursuing justice and
freedom in southern Africa."

from that meeting thinking that
we could work together to solve
the very complicated and
complex problems that are in-
volved in a settlement in the

YOUNG NOTED that "there
can be no peace without
strength; there can be no peace
without the basis of security, and
that's the reason the United

not only to the peace of Israel but
to the security of Israel."
Rabbi Saul I. Teplitz,
president of the Synagogue
Council, the umbrella
organization of Reform, Con-
servative and Orthodox Judaism
in America, said that the
organization "has applauded the
Administration's resolve to
finally move the Arab-Israel
dispute to a peaceful resolution."
He said "The Administration can
count on our continued support

UJA Prime Minister's Missio
A Picnic with a Difference
JERUSALEM "We're surrounded by history here.
Maybe now we're making some." In essence, this
described the mood at Rosh Ha'ayin Park, where members
of the United Jewish Appeal's 1978 Prime Minister's
Mission met a number of Arab notables from the West
Bank. Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.
Today, Rosh Ha'ayin is a largely Yeminite town north-
east of Tel Aviv. In Biblical times, the site had special sig-
nificance since it stood astride the main route from the
north to Jerusalem. Invading armies with designs on the
Holy City swept down through the natural land channel
between a coastal swamp on one side and the Samarian
mountains ont he other. Consequently, the ancient
defenders built two towering fortresses in Herodian
times.and Turkish ramparts built on the ruins were
erected in the modern era.
THOUGH crumbled, the fortifications still loom
defiantly today, a stark memorial to the military history of
the region. Nearby is another memorial a beautifully
landscaped park created out of malarial swampland so
painstakingly drained by modern Israel's early pioneers.
The park and the neighboring underground springs which
provide almost half of Israel's national water supply, com-
bine to make the area undeniably beautiful.
This was the setting for the special encounter. The Arab
notables journeyed to the site to exchange views withUJA_
Mission participants, all them key Jewish
leaders in the United States and Canada.
Under the spreading eucalyptus trees, the twol
picnicked on chicken and salad and talked. Thel

Public School had an unusual
start to the current academic
year. They were joined by a con-
tingent of United Jewish Appeal
members from the United States
and Canada who went into the
classroom on the very first day of
"I was a little hesitant about
this," said Principal Tzila Ish-
Shalom. the daughter-in-law of
Jerusalem's former mayor. "But
within five minutes everyone was
clapping and singing together. I
talked to some of the parents who
were here with their children.
They were all impressed."
SO WERE the visitors, par-
ticipants in the UJA's 1978
Prime Minister's Mission. "Who
knows who we are?" one mission
member asked an eighth grade
class later in the morning.
"You're the magbit, the UJA,"
answered twelve-and-a half-year-
old Gili Leish. "You give money
to Israel because you love us and
you are Jews."
According to Education Minis-
try Inspector Maghen Yochanan,
there was special significance in
the UJA visit to Aranne School.
Between 1949 and 1953. he told
the group, the site housed exten-
sive ma'abarot or transit camps
for newly-arived immigrants.
"I still remember when 10.000
people lived here in tents, in
cramped, primitive conditions.
Those were very hard years for
people who came from camps in
Europe or as refugees from the
Arab lands. But look what's
happened since. We've built a
school in the place where those
people had their first glimmer of
hope. If that's not progress, then
hdon't know what is."
Talpiot industrial
quarter, the
school serves a largely low-
income population consisting of
early immigrants from North
Africa and Asia. Despite the cul-
tural differences and income
gaps, Mrs. Ish-Shalom told the
Mission members, the area has
achieved a high degree of social
"In my opinion," she ex-
plained, "that success is partly
due to this school. Also, we have
many western immigrants
coming into the area and they
have a higher income level
because of their skills. But they
are also being integrated well in
the neighborhood because their
children lern here and the parents
are active in a number of extra-
curricular activities. The school is
a focal point of the community
and it shows the crucial role of
education in Israel."
For the UJA community
leaders, the visit was a learning

ranches 1978 Campaign
The more than 300 Jewish community leaders who participated in
.intensive four-day United Jewish Appeal Prime Minister's Mission
Israel set in motion the Appeal's 1978 campaign, the largest in
jA's history.
The community leaders came to Israel at the invitation of Prime
Lister Menachem Begin. They set a 1978 goal for UJA of $7 billion
I largest in the Appeal's 38-year history and then went on to
Ledge $23.5 million toward that goal. The men and women waited
patiently in line at the Knesset, on the Mission's last night, Sept. 1, to
announce their pledges to the Prime Minister. Their pledges amounted
to nearly a 25 percent increase over the $17.5 million contributed by
300 men and women on last year's Prime Minister's Mission.
The UJA campaign this year is headed by general chairman
Leonard R. Strelitz of Norfolk, Va. Charles Locke of Woodlands is
general chairman of the Jewish Federation's UJA here in Greater Fort
Lauderdale (see story on Locke, page 1).

ng. Those were just some of the reactions expressed
ntere of the United Jewish Appeal's 1978 Prime
r's Mission to Israel when they met refugees from
Vietnam learning Hebrew in the southern development
town of Ofakim.
The encounter came when Mission participants arrived
to inspect the local absorption center which houses new
Prime Minister Menachem Begin addressed
the 300 United Jewish Appeal/ Federation
UJA's Prime Minister's Mission. Following
his speech, the 300 men and women pledged
immigrants during their initial period in Israel. The com-
plex, which already had a large contingent of Russian
newcomers, is also home to the 66 Vietnamese who were
plucked from the sea by a passing Israeli freighter just
when their escape vessel was on the verge of capsizing.
"WE WERE fleeing from the Communists," explained
a South Vietnamese dentist. "But the seas were stormy,
we were wet, hungry, out of food and ignored by every
other ship in the area. The Israeli captain saved us. No
other country would have us except Israel, so here we are
happy, thankful and safe."
Some of the refugees plan to settle permanently in the
country. Most, however, want to join their relatives in
other countries, such as the United States, and are waiting
patiently for visas. In the meantime, the adults are
studying Hebrew in the absorption center's ulpan (inten-
sive language laboratory) and their children have been in-
tegrated in the regular school system.
When the UJA Prime Minister's Mission members
arrived, they found the parents in class. "I'm impressed,"
said one observer. "Here they are, not quite two months in
the country, and they can converse in Hebrew. That's
something I have trouble doing today even though I
learned the language as a child. This was a very moving
NEXT DOOR. Russian immigrants were going
throught he same exercises. During recess, the two groups
mingled well, using Hebrew as their common language.
Some compared notes about life under communist rule
while others detailed their job prospects. Soon the break
was over and both classes returned to their lessons.
According to Aviva Goldberg, a social worker in
Ofakim, the whole project has special significance. "Jews
everywhere can take pride in this," she said. "This abosrp-
tion center is funded by the Jewish Agency, which in turn
gets its money from Jews in America and around the free
world. What we see here is so typically Jewish: Jews

mostly children. And the
decorum is always serious. But
the most important ingredient for
the B'nei Israel congregation is
lacking a spiritual leader.
THE PROBLEM is especially
acute since Indian Jews live more
closely and tightly together than
other Jewish groups. To bring in
a rabbi from another one of
Dimona's many oriental com-

B'nei Israel leaders and Winer
recently told the story to
members of the annual United
Jewish Appeal Prime Minister's
Mission, which visited numerous
Negev development towns and
kibbutzim to study social con-
ditions at first hand.
The Indian Jews are also
searching for a professional
youth worker to help expand
after-school activities for their
many children. Education is the
top priority in Dimona, which has
the second largest birth rate in
the country. One-third of the
population is of school age, and
half the town's budget is spent on
THE UJA community leaders,
who spent the better part of the
day scrutinizing the town's
problems and possibilities, came
away hopeful. And the reason for
that wasn't simply idealism.
They were shown proof that
Dimona's worst days are over.
The visit began with a greeting
from Mayor Armon Laredo, who
reported that Dimona is in the
business of taking Jews from a
mosaic of ethnic backgrounds
and transforming them into one
people. The task requires a
continuous flow of funds for
schools, cultural centers, and
other services. Therefore, Laredo
said, his work cannot continue to
show progress without the
ongoing support of world Jewry.
The mission also got a glimpse
of the nearby forest, where an
Independence Day picnic was
held for the first time this year. A
few years ago the forest was a
desert. In fact, all of Dimona was
desert in 1957, when the town
started with 35 families. Though
the present population exceeds
all expectations of the town

reactors, is still growing.

leaders saw, the town has turned

officials "the opportunity to
consider seriously whether the
public is effectively served when
a public television station
provides a special forum, for
whatever reason, to those whose
platform calls for brutalization,

The WNET spokesperson said
today that the two Jewish
agencies had misunderstood the
nature of the station's responses
and that the station had not
made a commitment not to
telecast the disputed program
which is an hour in length, double
its usual time.
The spokesperson also noted
that WHYY-TV was preparing a
new 30-minute concluding section
for the expanded program, which
will extend it to 90 minutes. She
said no decision will be made on
local showing of the disputed
program until the additional 30-
minute segment is screened here.
major problem was that the
expansion of the program from 30
to 90 minutes posed a major
programming problem and that
this was a prime consideration in
whether or not the disputed
program would be telecast. She
insisted that such decisions were
"an internal matter" .nd not
affected by public protests.
She also said that the station
had not received th* com-
mendatory letter Ms. Le\ me was
quoted as having sent to WNET.
She also said that the decision on
whether or not to use the
disputed program woulu be a
"team" decision o: key
management personnel.
The spokesperson said the
PBS had notified WNET that
another 30minute segment was
under preparation by WH YY and
that, after receiving notification
from PBS to that effect. WNET
officials followed routine
procedure in withholding
scheduling pending a screening of
the additional material.

As recently as Aug. 28, when the world was

THAT RETURN, that self-determination, that
independent state means the liquidation of Israel.
For all these reasons, the joint U.S.-Soviet
declaration can only be interpreted as aban-
donment of America's historic commitment to the
security and survival of Israel and as a move that
imperils American interests by giving a major
role to the USSR not merely at Geneva but in the
Middle East itself. It is not a prescription for
peace but rather a formula for reducing Israel
the one democratic nation in the Middle East, the
one sure friend of our country there into a
vassal state dependent in part for its physical
protection and thus its very survival on the
Soviet Union.

In 1943, he was appointed

which helped to bring about
agreement on the part of all
American Jewish organizations,
Zionist and non-Zionist, to seek
broad support for the establish-
ment of a Jewish state in
Palestine at the end of World
War II.
Through his increasingly
intimate relationship with Dr.
Weizmann, Weisgal became
interested in the Daniel Sieff

Weizmann had founded in 1934 in
the village of Rehovot on the

PLO Refusal
The State Department, in a rare
assertion of condemnation of any
Arab grouping, assailed a key
element of the Palestine
Liberation Organization for its
refusal to abide by the ceasefire
arranged in southern Lebanon.
"We are gratified that the
situation is calming down,"
spokesman John Trattner said in
a prepared statement, "but we
view with concern acts and state-
ments we have seen reported by
the so-called Palestinian Rejec-
tionists who say they oppose the
cease-fire. We strongly condemn
such attacks."
HE SAID the U.S. "basic
objective" is to achieve "a true
stability in the area and to ex-
tending the authority of the
government" of Lebanese
President Elias Sarkis in the area
adjoining northern Israel.

conceived as a 70th birthday gift
to Dr. Weizmann.
DESPITE THE fact that he
was neither an educator nor a

assumed leadership of the
Weizmann Institute, took up
residence with his family in
Rehovot, and in November, 1949
presided over the Institute's
formal dedication.
In 1951, he took a year's leave
of absence from the Weizmann

SINCE Ohev Shalom in Or-

thousands of soldiers and sailors
who were stationed in the area
and for whom Passover Sedorim,
holiday celebrations and warm
hospitality were provided by the
Jewish community.
FROM A membership of some
60 families in 1937, including
Jewish residents from Sanford,
Leesburg, Haines City, Mt. Dora
and Bartow, we soon had over
500 Jewish families spread
throughout Central Florida.
Then, in 1949, we began to
serve the growing community of
Coral Gables. After another 12
years in Coral Gables, we ex-
perienced another remarkable
growth of Jewish population,
which spread into the South Ken-
dall area and reaching to Home-
stead and Key West. During

felt to the parents."
When the children came to
class the following day, it was
obvious that their parents' own
pleasure in the school had been
passed on to them, Mrs. Zoll said.
"The smoothness and the
relaxed environment of the
classes were evidence that the
children really wanted to be in
the religious school and were
enjoying themselves, and partly
because their parents had told
them what to expect."
Mrs. Zoll noted that she has
been using this technique for a
number of years, and that it has
proved to be a successful tech-
nique in communicating the
goals, aspirations and methods of
the religious school."

briefing on how to prepare news
for The Jewish Floridian that was

readers, that its news columns
are informative and interesting,
and that the paper is eagerly
awaited from issue to issue.
The congregational represen-

Before the end of the British

their homes, or were driven from
them during the fighting. Most of
them came from mixed urban
areas which fell under complete
Jewish control as many as
70,000 Arabs fled from Jaffa and
another 60,000 left Haifa. Many
of these Arabs also believed that
they were leaving their homes

after a swift, crushing Arab
victory, they would return vic-
torious to their homes in a

Another 300,000 or more Arabs
were displaced after May 15,

neighboring Arab States invaded
Israel encouraging Arab
masses to flee. This third phase
of the Arab exodus ended by
November 1948.

The PLO Today
Today, the self-proclaimed
spokesman for the Palestinians is
the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization (PLO), a loose
coalition of the Arab terrorist
bands, founded in 1964 and
financed by the Arab League. Its
claim to speak for the Palestinian
people is without documentation;
it has never held an election.
The only hard information that
is available suggests there are
deep rifts among its constituent
members. In September 1974, the
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine quite the PLO
Executive charging PLO Chair-
man Yasir Arafat with "selling
out" to Egypt and accepting
Egyptian willingness to nego-
tiate with Israel.
Among the terrorist groups
making up the PLO are:
Al Fatah: founded in 1957
under Egyptian sponsorship,
which made its first raid into
Israel in 1964. Currently. Al
Fatah receives arms and funds
from Algeria, Libya and Syria,
which also provide training
facilities. The largest number of
Fatah bases are in I^banon. The
head of Al Fatah, Yasir Arafat,
also heads the PLO
Al Saiqa: formed by the Syrian
government to control terrorist
action within Syria and com-
posed of members of Syria's
regular army. Zahair Hohsen,
general director of Al Saiqa, also
serves as chief of the PLO
military department.
Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine (PFLP): formed
shortly after the Six-Day War,
with bases in Syria and Lebanon
and headquarters in Beirut. Its
leader is George Habash: its
logan, "A single Palestinian state
in the whole territory of Pales-
tine"; its ideology, rigidly Marx-
ist and violent.
Popular Democratic Front for
the Liberation of Palestine
(PDFLP): an offshoot of the
Habash group, founded in 1969.
Marxist-Maoist in its political
orientation, the PDFLP boasted
responsibility for the massacre of
Ma'alot in which 24 Israeli chd-
dren were killed. The PDFLP
receives financial support from
Syria and South Yemen and is
based in Lebanon and Syria with
headquarters in Beirut. In April
1974. Nayeh Hawatmeh, who
heads the PDFLP. asserted that
even if a Palestinian state were
established on the West Bank,
his goal would remain the an-
nihilation of the State of Israel.
Hawatmeh is regarded as a
moderate" among terrorists.
Arab Liberation Front (ALF):
created by the Iraqi government
in 1968 to conduct terrorist
activities within Israel and the
administered territoriea.
Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine General Com-
mand: a splinter group formed
from PLFLP, responsible for the
terrorist attack at Kiryat
Shemona. Led by Ahmed Jabril,
they have their headquarters in
Beirut and bases in the UNRWA
refugee camps in Lebanon. They
receive support from Syria but
are not part of the PLO.
Fatah is also the parent body
of Black September the or-
ganization that assassinated the
Jordanian Prime Minister Wafsi
Tal in 1971, murdered 11 Israeli
athletes at the Munich Olympics
in 1972 and shot to death the
United States Ambassador and
charge d'affairs in Khartoum, the
Sudan, in 1973, among other
Middle East observers friendly
to the Arab cause argue that the
PLO itself is split between
"moderates" and "hardliners."
What separates the "moderates"
from the "hardliners" is not any
reluctance to murder innocent
civilians. Indeed, both groups en-
thusiastically embraced a
declaration adopted at the Pales-
tinians' meeting in Cairo in June
1974 ordering the leadership of
the over-all Palestine Liberation
Organization to set up military
operations "inside occupied
lands" meaning Israel proper
and the territories captured
during the 1967 war.
evacuated by Israel would only
be "a step on the path" to the
total "liberation of Palestinian
soul." No PLO leader has ever
rejected the Palestinian
Covenant, which remains in
effect today.
A Fatah spokesman declared
on Oct. 19, 1968, that "a
solution" could be achieved by a
"declaration of amnesty" to
every Jew from an Arab state
now living in Israel. He said that
a Jew of Arab origin would be
able to return to his "native land,
a true Arab citizen enjoying
every right enjoyed by the Arab
native, as he was before...If
these Jews returned to their
countries of origin, which we do
not doubt that many of them
would like to do, the problem
would be solved to a great ex-
tent "
However, events in Lebanon
have demonstrated Arab in-
tolerance of other religious
groups and the impossibility of a
PLO "democratic secular state."
Furthermore, a Palestinian
State already exists. Jordan,
which spans the whole of eastern
Palestine, up to the Jordan River,
has a population almost equally
divided between Arabs who lived
in Transjordan before 1948 and
those who fled eastward for
better economic conditions or as
a result of the 1948 and 1967
wars. There are approximately
700,000 Palestinians in Jordan
out of a total population of
1,300,000. Movement of the Arab
population, including the Pales-
tinian refugees, took place inside
the historic area of Palestine.
Today, many of Jordan's
cabinet ministers and members of
parliament come from western
Palestine; the major part of the
country's economy and the
government administration is in
the hands of former residents of
western Palestine; approxi-
mately three-quarters of the in-
habitants of Amman, the capital.
Lame from western Palestine.
These facts and figures in-
dicate that the Hashemite King
dom of Jordan is, for all intents
and purposes, a Palestinian
State. It is a rarely noted fact
that both King Hussein of
Jordan and his PLO enemies who
want to see him deposed agreed
that Jordan is Palestine and
Palestine is Jordan. Therefore,
when people speak of "Pales-
tinian rights" they should be
required to make their intentions
clear, especially with regard to
Israel's role in the fulfillment of
those "rights."
The West Bank
and the Gaza Strip
Those who believe that a
separate Palestinian Arab state
on the West Bank and Gaza Strip
would be feasible fail to'take into
1) the danger that such a state
would represent to civilians in
Israel, who would be exposed to
terrorist attacks;
2) the threat to moderate West
Bank Palestinians who would be
subject to intimidation and ven-
geance if they refused to col-
laborate with the PLO's terrorist

ricultural, industrial and housing
base available in then areas for

- not only a threat to Israel but
to Jordan. It would also
represent a defeat for the legiti-
mate aspirations of many West
Bank Arabs who want peace with
Israel. Also, a Soviet-oriented
state reaching from Syria to the
Red Sea would undermine
American influence in the Middle
During the past 10 years, the
economic status for the people of
the West Bank and Gaza has sig-
nificantly improved. As many as
80,000 Palestinian Arabs of the
West Bank and Gaza have been
steadily employed in Israel. At
the same time, they have enjoyed
a close connection with fellow
Palestinians in Jordan because of
Israel's liberal open-door policy,
which has permitted hundreds of
thousands of Arabs to visit Israel
since 1967. Additionally, few
West Bank Palestinians have
joined terrorist movements.
A new mini-state in the 2,000-
square-mile area of the West
Bank would not be economically
viable and would be politically
unstable, unable to live an in-
dependent life. But this question
is moot since the PLO would not
be content with simply a separate
PLO officials have repeatedly
made it clear that they would
accept a separate West Bank
state only as a first step toward
their eventual objective of
creating a Palestinian state in all

the PLO in 1968 and revised in
1974, clearly states that the

Top Leaders Point
To 'New Munich'
joint U.S. Soviet statement was
denounced here by several
leading Jewish and non-Jewish
principles of a negotiated set-
tlement within the framwork of
UN Resolutions 242 and 338. The
U.S.-Soviet plan calls for an
spokesmen as an abandonment of
America's historic commitment
to Israel's security.
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, accused
the Carter Administration of
reneging on President Carter's
pledge Lo support a negotiated
settlement in the Middle East on
the basis of the United Nations
Security Council Resolutions 242
and 338 and requested Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance "the op-
portunity of a clarification from
you of the American position."
RABBI Joseph P. Sternstein,
president of the Zionist
Organization of America, con-
demned the joint statement as a
"new Munich."
He called for an immediate
national mobilization of the
Jewish people in this country and
urged the convocation of a
leadership assembly in
Washington "to dramatize our
concern at the lethal direction
American foreign policy has
taken and its mortal danger to
the State of I srael.''
In a telegram sent to Vance,
Schindler said. "We are
profoundly disturbed" by the
joint U.S.-Soviet statement
which on its face represents an
abandonment of America's
historic commitment to the
security and survival of Israel
and imperils our country's in-
terest by giving a major role to
the USSR, not merely at Geneva
but in the Middle East itself.

face of the President's public
pledges of support for the

inevitably lead to further turmoil
in the area. It is not a
prescription for peace but rather
a formula for reducing

protection and thus its very

Sternstein said the joint
statement "has done the work of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. The statement
leaves Israel with nothing to
negotiate at Geneva. The phrase,

Palestinians,' is a code phrase for

"THERE IS now no point in
Israel's going to Geneva since the
United States and the Soviet
Union have announced their plan
to impose their own solution in
line with Arab demands, even
though President Carter has
repeatedly and solemnly stated
that the U.S. would not be a
party to an imposed solution."
In television interviews, the
joint statement was attacked by
AFL-CIO president George
Meany and Sen. Henry Jackson
(D., Wash). Appearing on CBS'
Face the Nation, Meany said an
imposed settlement will not work
since a peace settlement could
only come from the parties in-
volved. "I just can't see an
imposed settlement,'' he said.

Ze'evi counteracted by filing a
$200,000 libel suit against
Olmert. Mizrachi reacted by
suing the newspaper's editor and

the largest sum ever demanded in
a libel suit in a local Israeli court.
Meanwhile Ze'evi had been
exonerated in a letter from

Yosef Burg, who in a letter to the
