Jacob Brodzki Reports:
[ewish Population Here Booming, Federation Copes
Fort Lauderdale Correspondent
North Broward today is the
Jlocale of the fastest growing Jew-
ish community in the United
The sprawling north part of the
mnty stretches from the ocean
the east to the Glades in the
vest, and from the Fort-Lauder-
ile Hollywood International
lirport on the south to the Palm
each County line on the north.
THE JEWISH Federation of
|()reater Fort Lauderdale, now in
ts 11th year, is in the dual and
difficult position of meeting and
erving the booming social
velfare, educational, cultural and
i-group needs of the com-
munity on the one hand and
Struggling from being swamped
by a rising but still inadequate
ncome on its annual UJA fund-
raising campaign.
These are the findings of Jacob
Irodzki, president of the Jewish
ederation, following an in-
ensive recent personal survey
and inspection that took him into
fcvery part of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale area. He made the
survey on rounding out his first
Rix months in office as the Fed-
eration's top officer.
"Great and growing as the
needs are," he declared in an
interview with the Jewish Flo-
ridian, "the majority of people
don't know how pervasive Jewish
needs are locally. At the same
time, most Jews have a keen
awareness of the needs of Israel."
A PART of the reason for a
lesser familiarity with local need,
Brodzki pointed out, is that "so
many of the Jews of Fort Lauder-
dale are recent newcomers to the
area and have yet to acquaint
themselves with either their
neighboring localities and the
problems therein or with the
Jewish Federation."
"That they should know as
much as they do about Israel,"
Brodzki added, "owes to the fact
that they have been living with
Israel's needs for a very much
longer time."
Commenting on the wide scope
of Jewish need here, the Fed-
eration president said that it was
as various and as complex as
the kinds of people coming into
the area."
HE POINTED out that while
the Jewish community here
encompasses a large number of
senior and elderly persons, it has
also large components of young
families and middle-aged couples,
with a preponderance on the side
of the young families. He noted in

peace in the Middle East and
would not bend to the President's
frankly growing pressure on him
to yield to a U.S.-Egyptian-im-
posed peace settlement on the
Middle East.

Okun's career as an artist,
while never interrupted, took sec-
ond place to I career in chemicals
innovation and invention, and in
chemicals manufacturing. Some
of his inclination toward an inter-
est in chemicals had to do with
his first work with colors as an
artist, and may well have had its
first inspiration while a student

York, which is basically a school
of technology. My the early

Other of his products have

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdaie
Friday. March 17, 1975
Editor's Corner
Fort Lauderdaie is Getting Big
Jacob Brodzki, president of the Jewish Federation,
has been living in these parts for 25 years. Even he is hard-
put to realize the area's phenomenal growth, although he
has seen it grow, expand and explode for two-and-a-half
decades. For him, there is more than a passing or acade-
mic interest in what is happening.
As president of the Jewish Federation, he feels and
must discharge the awesome responsibility of planning
the multtiple and complex services and programs that the
boom in Jewish population has put on the agenda of pri-
orities, just as he must take ultimate responsibility for ap-
plying current programs to current needs. To do his work,
he has the cooperation of a sizeable board, and the help of
many committees.
One thing he wishes he had more of and that's sup-
port of the Federation's UJA. Despite a devoted lay
and professional leadership in the campaign, and despite
fund-raising successes from year to year including what
appears to be an over-the-top campaign this year the
volume of need is greater than the volume of funds to meet
The plain facts are that there is considerable Jewish
poverty here alongside considerable wealth; much loneli-
ness, much suffering, even much agony side by side
with fun and games and all the sport that money can buy,
and does. How much for the latter how much for Ditv's
Surveys, statements, editorials, laments do not raise
funds. They may point out or underscore the need. The
rest remains with the donor. If we do not live by bread
alone nor by power; if no man is an island entire unto him-
self, and if it is true that we are all brothers, oughtn't we
to act that way? As Brodzki says, let's answer the appeal
of the United Jewish Appeal better than we've been
doing, now.
'Freedoms' Shaped by Need
We do not want to repeat the old Oliver Wendell
Holmes saw about shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theatre,
although its applicability is here apparent. It is, in fact, so
apparent that it delineates precisely what the Nazis would
like to do to Jews universally to bum them in the fires
of the crematoria which, in their view, have been only
temporarily banked.
Consider, hov.ever, free speech and the laws
governing libel. Consider the right to private property
and the confiscatory American tax system. Consider, if
you will, the right to free enterprise and the laws
governing restrictive federal guidelines on who shall be
employed and who shall be accorded federal contracts in
federally-funded projects.
This week's vote on a rapid transit system was
wrapped in a sandwich of just such irrelevancies: the
restrictive guidelines governing the number and variety of
minority groups to be employed and the number and
variety of minority contractors to be granted contracts.
Do these guidelines not abridge the right of the
majority to constitutionally assured protection? Are all
these not instances where freedoms are "shaped" by
societal need?
In our view, there is a similar crying need not to
encourage groups calling for the incineration of Jews Let
those who insist otherwise, particularly in South Florida
ask whether the court ruling would have "washed" were
Blacks or Latins involved.
We doubt it. They would have been the first to object.

SUBSCRIPTION KATES: (Local Area) One Yeer-s; Out of Town Uoon
On the U.S. Balance of Terror
ON THE last day of the first
month of the New Year, our
house was burglarized again.
The other day. we went to a
movie in Coconut Grove. On the
way from the parking lot to the
theatre, in broad Sunday after-
noon daylight, we were assaulted
by a purse-snatcher whom we
successfully fought off.
IT WAS an undischarged rage
over the burglary that got the old
adrenalin pumping furiously in
us and gave us the wild will to
prevail. We let out all our frus-
tration and fury on our assailant
as we could not on those who had
burglarized us, and held him bad
just long enough for the police u
capture him.
It was a most uncivilized oc-
currence and left me more dis-
appointed in my reaction than in
fear of the thought that trying to
detain him was a foolish and
dangerous thing to do and that it
might really have turned out
quite violently for us.
The fact is that we live in a
world poised on a fulcrum that is
a balance of terror. East and
West neutralize each other's
potential for nuclear terror with
the threat of an ultimate terrorist
AS I AM writing this, the
forces behind a rapid transit
system are terrorizing the com-
munity with dire prophesies of
doom if the system is voted down
the allegedly irremedial and
criminal loss of federal funding,
choked ten-lane expressways in
our future, a tangle of concrete
by-passes and elevated arteries
in layers sufficiently high to
block out our already fast-dis-
appearing South Florida terrain.
The problem in this balance of
terror struggle is that there is no
clear-cut tyrant or clear-cut
victim of tyranny. Each side of
the wildly-swinging see-saw
gyrates on a fulcrum of
hypocrisy, greed and indifference
to humanity.
Because of this, it is hard to
make moral judgments and. what
is worse, moral choices. I may
hate the Russian system with a
fierceness to which none of my
other antipathies can dare aspire,
but I would be hard-pressed not
to recognize the feelings of hatred
in me for the hypocrisy, greed

Confrontation With the JDL
Friday, March 17,1978
Volume 7
8 ADAR 2-5738
The sitdown in the local offices
of the American Civil Liberties
Union didn't turn out to be much
of a media event. This must have
been a sore disappointment to the
20 or so Jewish Defense Leaguers
who had alerted the press, radio
and television to the fact that
they were going to halt all opera-
tions at the ACLU in protest
against its stand on freedom of
speech and assembly as it con-
cerns American Nazis.
To the relief of those of us who
became part of the confrontation,
the young people left without
committing any violence or
trashing'' the offices, since JDL
has that kind of non-Jewish rep-
utation. It was getting on toward
4 o'clock last Friday when I sug-
gested that Shabbos was im-
WHETHER or not the leaders
were also tired of the round and
round dialogue" that had taken
place, for the mostly Orthodox-
oriented group the advent of
Shabbos provided a good and
dignified setting for exit.
No one wins in this kind of sit-
uation. I was there with some
other members of ACLU to pro-
vide support for the staff, to pre-
vent violence and to get the
.IDI.ers out of the offices without
calling the police and having
them arrested for trespass.
Along with the dilemma of
feeling obligated to protect the
constitutional rights of left-wing
and right-wing extremists, most
ACLU supporters find it difficult
to condemn protest even, as in
this case, when it bordered on the
AS I TOLD the JDL during
my attempt at dialogue, had they
put a picket line in front of the
building, I probably would not
have crossed it because of my
knee-jerk reaction to picket lines.
But as I tried to explain that
ACLU was not supporting Nazis
but the First Amendment in Sko-
kie. that we would continue to
protect .11)1, s rights no matter
how much we disagreed with
them some people call them
Jewish fascists'' and that
ACLU had taken many Jewish
causes to court, on prayer and
other matters, it was obvious
they were listening to the sound
of a different drummer.
"You're a liberal, not a Jew."
one young fellow told me.
"ACLU defends murderers,"
another called out
It reminded me that a trio of
civil libertarian lawyers. Alan
Dershowitz of Harvard Law
School; Harvey Silverglate, a
Boston attorney; and Jeanne
Baker, general counsel to the
Civil Liberties Union of Massa-
chusetts, had successfully forced
the government in 1972 to drop
its case against the JDL mem-
bers who had been charged with
the responsibility of killing an in-
nocent victim when they bombed
Sol Hurok s office in New York.
YOU WILL recall that Hurok
had long been a target of JDL
protests because of booking So-
viet performers on U.S. concert
This was a case whose outcome
depended solely upon the chal-
lenge of the liberal" attorneys to
the government's violation of the
Bill of Rights and not to the issue
of guilt ia placing the bomb.
Sheldon Seigd had admitted to
the act. along with others he
named, but the attorneys suc-
cessfully showed how he had been
victimized and trapped by be-
coming a government informer
The case makes for very comp-
licated reading, and anyone in-
terested should read Civil Liber-
ties Review of April May 1976.
But there are several quotations I
believe worth sharing for those
who are disturbed by Skokie and.
yes. by the release of those who
murder, such as the JDL de-
"THERE ARE many who will
argue that the government simp-
ly did what it had to do: that it
could not responsibly have sat
back and remained within the law
when to do so would have courted
disaster. In litigating this case,
some of us shared thai view
italics mine), especially when we
learned about some of the JDL
plans that were aborted sok-ly by
Seigel's information.
But. in the last analysis, it is
right that the government should
have lost this case when it came
to court. Every time a court
throws out a conviction on CO*
stitutional grounds, it makes the
cost of constitutional violations a
bit higher. .
"In any particular case, espe-
cially in one as serious as the
Hurok bombing, the cost may
seem excessive: but considering
how rarely the courts impose
such costs, every decision like
that rendered in the Seigel case i
a victory for civil liberties."
LIKE THE ancient prophets,
it is justice, justice that the civil
libertarian pursues.
In this situation, I am remind-
ed of Reinhold Niebuhr's state-
ment that "Man's capacity w
justice makes democracy possible

justice that makes democracy ne-

Maria Hall and her husband Bob recently completed
a 39,000-mile round-the-world voyage in their 33-foot sail-
boat that took them to 52 countries, including the State of
Israel. We'd call that intrepid sailing, to say the least.
With the Halls was their daughter Juli, who was born in
mid-voyage on the island of Bali in the South Pacific.
The Halls left their Fort Lakerdale home in Nove-
mber 1973 and came home more than four years later, this
past January. They saw a good part of this whole wide
world. Israel made an enormous impression on them.
What do the Halls think of Israel? Maria Hall writes:
"PLEASE KNOW THIS: During the two-and-a-half
months we spent in Israel, we learned what hospitality,
drive, pride in accomplishment and living under duress
"Israel is a shining star in our world, with an inalienable
right for existence as it sees fit. It should not be forced to
concede anything it considers necessary for survival and
pervasive peace. Foreign intervention (specifically, the
U.S. government's) should be stemmed at all costs. Visit
it and see for yourself."
Maria Hall wrote the above as a letter to the Jewish
Federation. She then called and said she was coming soon
to visit the Federation.
P.S. The Halls are not Jewish.
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan
blames Egypt for the current
impasse in peace talks with Israel
and says his country prefers
direct negotiations and practical
discussions of mutual proposals
HE SAID the current
negotiations through American
mediation was contrary to the
understanding reached by Prime
Minister Menachem Begin and
President Anwar Sadat at their
Christmas Day meeting in
with the Egyptians to the present
contacts through an American
Addressing the 29th World
Zionist Congress. Dayan claimed
there are no direct negotiations
with Egypt now because the
Egyptians do not want or cannot
conduct such negotiations
without the participation of
Jordan and other Arab countries.
He also accused Cairo of
toughening its stand and hacking
away from original positions._____
Ismailia last year.
According to Dayan, the
Egyptians promised then to
present counterproposals to
Israel's peace plan for Sinai and
the West Dank, but so far they
have not done so.
"It is hard to tell whether the
Egyptians believed at the begin-
ning of negotiations that they
would eventually reach a
separate agreement with Israel."
Dayan said.
AT THE moment, he told the
Congress delegates, negotiations
are concentrated on the
Palestinian issue and the future
of the West Rank and there is no
discussion of bilateral matters
between the two countries.
Dayan said Israel did not
object to President Carter's Jan.

Palestinian Arab participation in
determining their own future.
Israel is willing to sit with
them and to discuss with them

claimed, however, that it is

speak of their future they mean
that they will determine our

McCloskey, who was formerly

that the U.S. never had a

solution of the Palestinian
HE SAID that while in
Washington he had never seen a
written blueprint for a "home-
land for the Palestinians." Such a
blueprint was expected to emerge
only from negotiations, he said.
Asked if he thought the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization should be involved in
the current Middle East peace
process. McCloskey replied: "If
Israel does not want to negotiate
with the PLO it will be extremely
difficult for the U.S. to negotiate
with the PLO."
The Ambassador stressed that
no American administration can
allow itself a real confrontation
with Israel, not only because of
the influence of the so-called

rooted in the American people in

We came to Israel in 1957. Six
months after we arrived we got
married. The first years were
very difficult. There was no work
and not enough food. For us it
was a new world. We settled in
the Maabara Bet Shean, where
the conditions were not good.
There was no electricity, no
shower and no toilets in the
"AT FIRST. David worked
only 10 days a month, and life
was very difficult. Then he be-
came a construction worker in Tel
Aviv and used to come home only
for weekends. He got a better job
in Migdal Ha'emek and things
improved even more when he be-
came a contractor and built bomb
shelters in Shaar HaGolan To
tell the truth, we. the North Afri-
can newcomers, fek discriminat-
ed against. Together with us
came Eastern European newcom-
ers, who got better conditions for
settling down.
David was very bitter about
it. He also participated in some
demonstrations. The North Afri-
can newcomers felt they needed
better representation, and David
was asked to become a candidate
for the Municipality Council. He
didn't want to go into politics,
but I wanted him to go and make
progress. I felt he was suitable
for this role because he cared. He
told me: You will suffer in the
end. because I will not be at home
and I will always be very busy.'
But I insisted and he gave in, and
I don't regret it.
After David became a public
figure many people in Bet Shean
came to visit my house and talk
about their problems. I used to
take notes and report to David
when he came home. It never en-
tered my mind that he would one
day be a minister."

ness in the Levy household.

jokes, and the house is alive.
They used to have a bicycle, but
it was stolen. My husband has a
Volvo car. but all the children
cannot get in this car Therefore,
we walk to not too distant places.
Sometimes we bring the children
to a place in two groups."
Her daughter Edna told the re-
porter: I also would like to have
many children, like my mother.

into politics. My brother Eshkol
wants to be a teacher. But my

twice a week. When I was in the
hospital with my 11th baby, he
came from Jerusalem all the way <
to Afuleh to visit me and then la-
ter traveled to Bet Shean to see
the children. We are used to de-

telephones me every day and
whenever a child is sick 1 call him
on the telephone and he comes
home, even at 2 a.m. He is very
devoted to the children.
"We spend a great deal of
money The food alone costs $000
per month. We also pay rent and
taxes and we must, of course, buy
clothing and shoes. David tells
me a lot. but he doesn't tell me
when the prices will go up. Some-
times I come to the grocery and I
am surprised by the rising prices.

Haaretz More than 30.000
young Jewish volunteers from
abroad come to Israel annually
and stay in various kibbutzim.

for Israel's people in their com-

The participants study Hebrew
in the Kibbutz llpan for half a
day and work the other half, over
a period of five and a half
months. The Ulpanim serve
young people between 17'; and

without children. Sixty Kibbut/

ments maintain Ulpanim. Some
of the volunteers are "adopted
by kibbutz families during their
stay there
Two-thirds of the Ulpan stu-
dents are Americans, and the
average age is 22-23 The Jewish
Agency allocates about $6,500 to
every Kibbutz for an Ulpan

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I must admit that I am con

Mindlin somewhere in his article
includes a criticism of former
President Nixon. My own
reading in various books, maga-
zines and newspapers leads me to
an entirely different conclusion.

Meir's biography, where she
describes a visit she made to

No Eagles for Saudi Skies
The evidence grows stronger each day of the danger
to Israel in the Carter administration's proposal to sell 60
F-15 "Eagle" fighter planes, the most sophisticated
warplanes in the American arsenal, to Saudi Arabia. This
danger is becoming more and more apparent not only to
Israelis but to the members of Congress who must ap-
prove or reject the sale.
President Carter incorrectly said that the Saudis have
never taken part in any of the Arab-Israeli wars. Yet a
Saudi brigade participated in the 1973 Yom Kippur War
on the Golan Heights and remained there until 1976. The
Saudis, of course, initiated an oil embargo during the 1973
war, and since then their officials have indicated they may
take an even more active part if there is a new Mideast
King Khalid told The New York Times in 1976 that
"When we build up our military strength we have no aims
against anybody, except those who took by force our lands
and our shrines in Jerusalem and we know who that is
..." Yes, we know whom the Saudi King means.
This is why the sale of F-15s to Saudi Arabia is so
The Carter administration may believe it has no choice
but to push for the sale because of Saudi Arabia's im-
portance as a producer of oil and to the economies of the
industrialized nations. But Congress has no choice but to
reject this sale which not only endangers Israel but
chances of a Middle East peace settlement.
Labor Party Delegation in Rumania
TEL AVIV (JTA) A Labor Party delegation headed
by Party Chairman Shimon Peres is making an official visit to
Rumania this week, where he is expected to meet with

Egyptian leader's talk with Peres in Slazburg, Austria, earlier
in February.
PERES SAID the invitation to the Labor Party indicates
Rumania's great interest in Middle East affairs. He is accom-
panied by MK's Chaim Barlev and Moshe Shahal. and Israel

He ticked off what he termed
"greatly needed new programs
and institutions which could not
become a reality unless there was
a dramatic rise in the average
person's giving to the UJA."
HE SAID that the community
required more institutional and
non- institutional care for the
aged, expanded Jewish education
programs, and a more suitable
building to house the Jewish
Federation, noting in this con-
nection that "major progress is
being made right at this moment
to give the Jewish Community
Center a facility that will enhance
its capabilities and services man-
At that. Brodzki pointed out,
the Federation is serving "many
thousands of Jews of all ages and
conditions." He explained that of
the funds raised in the UJA cam-
paign, approximately two-thirds
of the total want to Israel and
Jewish programs in other parts of
the world, while one-third was
retained for all other programs
serving Fort Lauderdale Jewry.
It is to the credit of the U.S.
Government and to the Broward
United Way that funds are made
available to the Jewish com-
munity to help it finance some of
itm local programs," he said.
HE OAVE this picture of the
local service programs:
Kosher Nutrition Program:
Feeds some 200 persons sixty
years of age and over at two sites
each day. five day* a week. Food
paid for by the federal govern-
ment. Program administered by
the Jewish Community Center.
The Center receives its major
funds from the Federation, plus
an allocation from the United
Jewish Family Service:
Counsels among all age groups,
on a broad range of personal and
family problems. Three pro-
fessional social case workers are
on duty five days a week. In
1977. the JFS helped over 1.000
persons in North Broward alone.
The Service is a joint enterprise
to the South Broward and
Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish
Federation retains an ordained
rabbi as its chaplain, whose chief
function is to visit and comfort
Jewish patients in old-age homes,
hospitals and other institutions.
Jewish Community Center:
Serves the cultural, educational,
recreational and leisure time
needs of all who come to it, and
these range in age from pre-
school children to the elderly.
JCC conducts a camp for pre-
teens, a program for singles,
many specialized programs for
older adults, and a variety of
lectures, discussion groups, play
offerings, movie showings, sight-
seeing, vacation trips and
cruises, dances, socials, holiday
programs and the annual ob-
servance of Israel Independence
WECARE: A program
initiated by the Federation's
Womens Division in 1976 that
has proved to be a successful
innovation in voluntaryism. The
program numbers over 400
volunteers and undertakes such
specialized efforts as Blood Hank
work, the distribution of gifts
and foods to the aged and hos-
pitalized at Chanukah and
Passover, collects used eye-
glasses for refurbishing and dis-
tribution to the needy, and helps
out in such things as trans-
porting the infirm and reading to
the blind.
COMMUNITY Relations:
This is a committee project
whose program and work is m the
sensitive areas of inter-group
relations and now particularly
works closely with issues af-
fecting Israel and the Middle
Fast. It also addresses itself to
outcroppings of local anti-
UJA Campaign: The campaign
is conducted under the auspices
of the Jewish Federation and in
partnership with the national
United Jewish Appeal. Each
campaign is on an annual basis.
The campaigns from year to year
have each succeeded in topping
the previous year's result. This
year's effort has a goal of $2.5
million last year's having
raised $1.8 million. The current
campaign has now reached last
year's total result and is headed
for the $2 million mark. The main
question is by how much the
drive will top two million. Charles
Locke of* Woodlands is the
general campaign chairman.
Brodzki, in giving the above
summary, underscored the UJA
campaign as "the one Federation
program in which each and every
member of the community can
take part."
"THE UJA is actually a two-
way street," said Brodzki.
Those who give get things back.
Fven those who do not give get
things .back. In fairness, each and
every person who has the means
even modest means should
be a UJA contributor.
"The major part of the con-
tributor's dollar goes to Israel.
What is finally retained by the
Jewish Federation for our local
programs also goes for Israel
the House of Israel in Greater
Fort Lauderdale. It's a house
that has to be enlarged and
strengthened in order to accom-
modate and serve our ever-
growing Jewish community.
"My personal appeal is to
every Jew who has the means
large or small to come forward
as a giver to the UJA.
"I MAKE this pledge to all
Jews: a call to the Federation for
help or guidance will be an-
swered. A call to me personally
will be answered. Our job at the
Federation is to answer calk for
help, calls for information, calls
for guidance. My hope is that
each person will also be respon-
sive by answering the appeal
for our United Jewish Appeal."

THE FILM, That Obscure
Object of Desire, now doing the
Wometco Theatre circuit,
demonstrates these principles
governing the balance of terror
how terror infects even the best
of us, causing us to retaliate in
kind, to seek revenge, making
beasts of us all.
In the film, director Runuel
links random acts of political ter-
rorism to the sexual campaign of
a young woman against an older
man whom she terrorizes by her
frivolous teasing of his serious
The woman is actually two
different women, but he fails to
recognize this because his greedy
desire for her submission makes
him indifferent to her personally.
Finally, his rage causes him to
respond in terrorist kind.
of humor lies in a dwarf psy-
chologist, who explains only the
most obvious things about the
older man's affair much to the
frustrated lover's astonishment,
who is too confused to under-
stand anything about his own
motives, and to the dwarf's
insistence that he has no really
special insights and that anybo-
dy should be able to see what he
is explaining even without his ex-
The dwarf is Bunuel's way of
saying that human motivation,
the subconscious, is beyond
man's puny attempts to under-
stand it. Man's knowledge in this
area, in effect, is dwarf-like.
Runuel also defines the ob-
vious sexual component in
terrorist activity which barking
machine guns, exploding bombs
and the middle-aged man's
merciless beating in the end of his
would-be lover clearly portray.
BUT FOR me, the most im-
portant lesson was the insight
into the humiliation that victims
of terrorism feel at the moment
that they strike back and become
terrorists themselves.
It was the trembling rage we
felt as we struck back in fury at
the would-be purse-snatcher in
Coconut Grove. We had become
terrorists ourselves.

Nazi Decision a Bummer
Whether or not Nazis should be permitted to march
with impunity in the predominantly Jewish-populated
suburb of Skokie in Illinois is a difficult question to an-
swer, and we resent the facile way in which so many
Jewish leaders have joined the equally facile American
Civil Liberties Union in supporting the court decision that
has given them the okay to do so.
No one is ever more sensitive to the right of freedom
of speech, press and assembly than publishers and editors
of a newspaper. In both these roles, we have probed deeply
into our conscience and our responsibility to the many
communities we serve.
We have asked ourselves to what extent Nazi beasts
should be permitted not only to march in open and
arrogant display of their reprehensible philosophy, but to
do so in an area heavily populated by Jews. In fact, by
specific Jews, by Jews so many of whom are survivors of
the Nazi concentration camps of the Hitler era.

The New and Powerful Arab Lobby in the United State*
A new, powerful Arab lobby is
emerging in Washington, and the
Arab voice is now being heard
more clearly there in the corridors
of power, according to the man-
aging editor of Foreign Policy
Magazine. He reports the recent
strengthening and the "increased
fairs Committee (AIPAC). While
on any critical development
AIPAC can still muster scores of
congressional signatures on pro-
tests, many of these now repre-
sent reluctant lip-service.
The most recent recruit to the
Arab lobbying ranks. Ungar re-
ports, is Fred Dutton, a former

ratus in the capital.
The writer is Sanford J. Ungar.

of the Washington scene. His ob-

issue of Atlantic Monthly, of
which he is a contributing editor,
and bring into focus new deve-
lopments including the shapin*

weakening of the effectiveness of
its Jewish counterpart

Administration Trys to Crack Jewish Solidarity
(JTA) The Carter Ad-
ministration's efforts to
bring the American Jewish
community leadership clos-
er to its views on major
\U.S.-Israel policy differ-
ences apparently were un-
successful at a White
House luncheon and brief-
ing for 31 Jewish communi-
ty officials from 19 cities
across the country.
While those present refused to
discuss the substantive matters
when the Jewish Telegraphic Ag-
ency approached them after the
luncheon, it was learned that the
guests firmly took issue with the
Administration's proposed "take
it or leave it" planes sale package

ZBIGNIEW Braezinski, Pres-
ident Carter's National Security
adviser, was the principal
spokesman on Middle East poli-
tical issues at the luncheon, while

time cannot enjoy impunity."
Prime Minister Begin told his
country on television. "We shall
eliminate this constant threat,"
which some interpreted as an
ominous warning of reprisals

is related to Sen. Abraham Ribi-
coff (D., Conn). In addition, nine
terrorists were also killed. Two
others who participated in the at-
tack have been apprehended.
In Beirut early this week, the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion took frank "credit" for the
attack. "Our heroic revolutionar-
ies proved that they are able to
penetrate all Zionist barriers and
reach their goal," the PLO news
agency, WAFA, said in a com-
munique, which added that the
attack was "our answer to Israeli
Egypt, whose rescue attempt
of hostages taken to Cyprus sev-
eral weeks ago in the wake of the
PLO murder of an Egyptian news

ister Begin with a public state-
ment of sympathy and regret for

the deaths of Egyptian comman-
i dos in the operation, did not re-
i spond in kind.
minister of state, instead merely
declared that the PLO attack
"proves that security in Israel
will not be attained through set-
tlements of the addition of new
lands." Also, Ghali offered the
, hope that the terrorist attack
would not hamper the ongoing
peace negotiations between Israel
and Egypt.
The PLO raid was commanded
by a 25-year-old Palestinian
woman, Dalai al Mughrabi, who
, was killed in the operation. The
11 terrorists landed on the coast
35 miles north of Tel Aviv in two
French-made Zodiak rubber
boats. It was there that they
killed photographer Rubin, who
came to Israel seven years ago
from New York City.
The terrorists then attacked a
private car, a taxi, two buses and
fired on other private cars from
the bus and several cars in a 30-
mile journey of violence down the
coastal highway south of Haifa
toward Tel Aviv.
ALONG THE way. the terror
ists forced all the passengers into
a single bus, many of whom they
chained to their seats. The single
bus then ran two police road-
blocks, one north and one south
of Netanya. It was believed that
the terrorists hoped to get to Tel
Aviv and launch a shoot-out on
the streets of post-Shabbat
crowds late Saturday night.
At the second roadblock, near
the posh Tel Aviv Country Club,
the terrorists were forced into a
gunfight with police, which they
fought beside the bus.
The battle ended when the bus
exploded, and it is still not clear
what set it off.
DEAD, DYING and burned
to a-crisp wounded were trundled
to nearby hospitals.
Prime Minister Begin warned
in his TV appearance that "Our
fight will be victorious," sug-
gesting that his line on a Palesti-
nian state and Judea and Sama-
ria will, if anything, be even
harder than before.
Weizman, on his return to Tel
Aviv, noted that "I'm holding re-
sponsible any country from
which such raids are launched."
He said that the attack "will cer-
tainly have an effect on the gen-
eral atmosphere" of the peace ne-
gotiations between Egypt and
Israel. "It reiterates again the
dangers of having an uncon-
trolled area in the close vicinity of
populated Israel."
THE FIRST of the burial rites
for the 37 victims of the attack
began Sunday with services for
five-year-old Na'ama Hadani,
who was found with a toothbrush
still in her hand.
Begin, at his cabinet meeting
Sunday, declared that the PLO is
"the most despicable organiza-
tion since the Nazis," and he
urged members to stand "and
honor the memory of the vic-
tims of our people's war of sur-
vival who were wantonly mur-
Begin observed that the terror-
ists were armed with Soviet-made
weapons and declared, "Let the
whole world see to whst depths
Communism has sunk."
MEANWHILE, both hard-line
Has Begin Wandered
From His Early Views?
JERUSALEM The consternation which now reigns among
some Israelis in general, and within the Herut party in particular, con-
cerning Begin's peace plan has triggered the question as to whether
Prime Minister Begin has altered his cherished political and ideologi-
cal views.
The answer to that riddle may perhaps be found in an examina-
tion of Jabotinsky's last book, The Battlefront of the Jewish Nation,
which he wrote in the year 1940. That book contains proposals which
are strikingly similar to those included in Begins peace plan. Jabotin-
sky's thesis treats of five themes: civil equality, languages, cultural
autonomy, the holy shrines and land.
JABOTINSKY PROPOSED that there be full and total equality
in all respects for all communities regardless of race, religion or lan-
guage. He further added, "In every government cabinet where a Jew
shall be premier, an Arab should be deputy premier; and vice versa."
The Jewish and Arab communities shall be regarded as autonomous
areas which will be treated equally in the eyes of the law.
Each national group shall elect its own parliament which will be en-
titled within the limits of its autonomous authority to issue de-
crees and to impose taxes.
INSOFAR AS the Holy Places are concerned, Jabotinsky wrote,
The most sacred areas of Old Jerusalem shall have extra-territorial
status, and every sector in that city shall manage its own municipal
affairs." The fundamental difference between Jabotinsky's and lo-
gin's plans is the time and setting in which they were conceived.
Jabotinsky wrote his book as a blueprint for the rescue of Euro-
pean Jewry. He assumed that in the land of Israel, on both sides of the
Jordan River, there would be a Jewish majority. However, the situa-
tion today is completely different.
THE SIX MILLION JEWS who were supposed to come to Israel
according to Jabotinsky's vision are no longer on the scene.
Jabotinsky's book contains the following introduction: "There
are, perhaps, some people who are concerned about the rights and des-
tiny of the Israeli Arabs once the country becomes a Jewish State. It
is hoped thst these expressions of concern will be put to rest once
those who voice them recognize that these proposals do not emanate
from the moderate' Zionists, but rather from the extremist' Zionists
envisioning the future character of the Land of Israel."
and "moderate" Arab states
hailed the PLO attack, with Li-
bya and Saudi Arabia calling it a
"courageous operation."
President Carter, oblivious of
his own role in the past weeks of
encouraging the PLO presence by
calling for Israeli withdrawal
from the Sinai, the West Bank
and the Golan Heights, as well as
by his threats to cut off arms to

ministrations if Israel does not
submit, called the attack "cow-
