programs aiding hundreds of
thousands of needy Jews in over
25 countries in continental

JDC staff in 1947 as director for
Germany where he developed and

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Contention Confounds Congress as Old Year Crawls Away
The Carter Administration is in
deep contention domestically
both on its national and in-
ternational policies. As the
Congress reconvened after the
New Year celebration, with its
inquiries, hearings and speeches,
the issues were bound to get into
sharp focus.
These include U.S. diplomatic
abandonment of Taiwan and the
implications of this on
Washington's relationship with
Israel: the attitude of the Carter
Administration towards inducing
Israel and Egypt to reach a peace
settlement; traditional economic
supporting assistance to Israel;
the weapons policy for Egypt,
Saudi Arabia and Israel, and the
official outlook towards the
terrorist Palestine Liberation
national policies are entangled as
President Carter's Administra-
tion enters its third year. The
domestic economy inflation,
unemployment, the falling
standard of living is at the
heart of the nation's politics.
Thus, while U.S. "normaliza-
tion" with the People's Republic
of China has its obvious strategic
purposes, the major thrust is
seen as bearing on an increase in
the U.S. share of the billion-
people Chinese market and the
use of China's natural resources,
including oil.

On its part, the Soviet Union is

The vehemence of some
American officials is hinted in a
recent remark that matters would
be worse if "the true reactions of
the leaders of the Carter
Administration" about Israel's
friends and Israel were to be
publicly revealed.
How much of this is accurate
and how much bluster is beyond
measure, but the tactic recalls the
sage advice of Sen. Clifford Case
(R., N.J.) in his final words to the
Washington press prior to his
retirement after 24 years in the
He urged the Administration
not to condemn Israel and seek to
"break her spirit" because Israel
alone stands as a reliable friend of
America in a crucial corner of the
world. The absence of Case from
the Senate, where he was the
ranking Republican on the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, is regarded as a major
loss to America's democratic
ON FOREIGN aid for Israel,
Carter said explicitly in a recent
interview with ABC-TV's
Barbara Walters that he will not
"reassess" the policy of
traditional support for Israel and
that he does "not necessarily"
agree with Senate Majority
Leader Robert Byrd (D., W. Va.)
that Congress may reduce
Israel's aid if it builds new
settlements in occupied areas.
Nevertheless, a reduction in
assistance on the ground of
America's inflation problem is
possible. The State Department
has given a hint in this direction.
The Administration has taken
a strong position against the
United Nations publicizing the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion and UNESCO's continued
assaults on Israel. Its per-
sistence, however, in equating
Israeli retaliation on I'l.O bases
to terrorist attacks on civilians in
Israel has raised questions that
have not been adequately an-
That there are elements in the
foreign affairs bureaus who
would perform a "Taiwan-China"
maneuver to legitimize the PLO
terrorists and try to bring them
into Mideast talks is understood
by some observers of the Mideast
publicizing of PLO Chief Yasir
Arafat by some of the most
important media indicates that
the spirit of accommodation with
his organization is alive and there
are instances when its terror
tactics are set aside. It is not seen
by observers as altogether an
oversight that a column-length
interview in The New York Times
and a half-hour interview on
CBS-TV did not mention
terrorism and that in the
Washington Post a leading
editorialist has suggested that
Carter's "greatest" political and
moral contribution to a Mideast
settlement would be to bring the
PLO into the negotiations.
Thus, the year 1979 enters with
uncertainty on the course of
events of highest importance to
the Jewish community but, as an
informed observer recalled,
wisdom precludes predictions on
the turn of political events,
particularly about the Mideast.
Israel Navy Comdr. Beats Rape Charge

Michael Barkai of charges of
attempted rape on grounds of in-
sufficient evidence.
The tribunal, consisting of
Gen. (res) Chaim Herzog and two
district court (civilian) judges
given the temporary rank of
general, indicated that it was not
impressed by Barkai's denial but
had to find in his favor according
to law because of the lack of

people that has been ignored for too long that of
the Falashas, the Black Jews of Ethiopia.
The Falashas have long been in Ethiopia, not
second class citizens, but third class. Their centuries
of poverty and discrimination have intensified since
Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed in 1974 as they
have been caught up in the midst of the internal
strife that has been going on in Ethiopia. Reports
from that country are that hundreds, if not
thousands, of Falashas have been killed. They have
been subjected to rape, pillage and torture. Many
have been sold into slavery.
The Ethiopian Immigrants Association in Israel
has recently spoken up publicly about this, and what
it claims has been a lack of aid from world Jewry and
the Israeli government especially during the time
before the Emperor's replacement by the present
military regime. The American Association for
Ethiopian Jews has also been publicizing the plight
of the Jews in Ethiopia.
The 'Eagles' Must Fly
Israel's long failure to act was basically due to
the close relationship between Jerusalem and Haile
Selassie, the "Lion of Judah" who considered himself
a descendent of King Solomon and the Queen of
Sheba. The Israeli government apparently did not
want to endanger this relationship despite the
reports from Ethiopia that the Falashas, especially
the young people, wanted desperately to emigrate to
Nor should it be forgotten that the rabbinate in
Israel did not officially recognize the Falashas as
Jews until 1975.
Jews in Israel and throughout the world owe it
to the Falashas, who have maintained their Judaism
over the centuries despite countless odds, to make
urgent efforts to bring the Falashas out of Ethiopia
before they are exterminated.
As Dr. Graenym Berger, a leader of the
American Association for Ethiopian Jews, recently
said, the Falashas "wait for Israel and world Jewry
to rescue them with 'wings of eagles' as the Yemenite
Jews were rescued in 1948." The "eagles" must not
delay too long in making this flight.
Report from Ampal
Ampal incorporates a variety of financial in-
stitutions under the Ampal-American Corp., which
mobilizes American investor capital and channels it
into productive Israeli enterprises.
For the more than 600 active Ampal investors in
South Florida, it was a treat to hear Uriel Lynn,
director of the Israel Investment Authority in North
America, at the annual Ampal brunch last weekend
Ampal's program is a worthy one because it
seeks to stimulate Israeli know-how and wherewithal
on Israel's home front. At a time of crushing
economic burdons at home, this is a major stimulant
away from the weariness of inflation and labor
disputes that sap the country's energies when they
are most needed to encourage stability and growth.
Jewish Floridian
Report from Iran
Frightening Speed of the Jewish Decline]
In the strife and turmoil of
Iran, where vital interests of the
Western world are at stake, the
Jewish community is in a par-
ticularly vulnerable position.
Iran's 80.000 Jews are by far
the largest single Jewish com-
munity remaining in the Moslem
world. Recent decades have seen
this Jewish community substan-
tially improve its condition.
Jewish religious life has gone on
unimpeded and has flourished.
Major Jewish organizations such
as the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, the Lubavitch Move-
ment, Ozar Hatorah. and the Al-
liance Israelite Universelle have
been permitted to do educational.
This background
memorandum on Iran has
been prepared by re-
searchers in foreign affairs
of the American Jewish
Committee. It contrasts the
greatly-improved status of
the Jews of Iran as a recent
phenomenon with the
sudden and rapid deteriora-
tion of the Jewish condition
there as anti-Semitism and
anti-Israel sentiments grow
with frightening rapidity.
cultural, and welfare work on
behalf of Iran's Jews.
Iranian Jews have had full
freedom of movement. Some
62.000 Jews have emigrated to
Israel in the score of years since
1948. The movement slowed to a
trickle in more recent years as the
general conditions in Iran im-
IN THIS favorable situation,
and with such outside aid. the
standard of living of Iranian
Jews has been mounting steadily,
and they have moved out
gradually from the horribly
overcrowded and once disease-
ridden quarters in which they
were densely packed. More than
11,000 Jewish children are to be
found in some 23 schools across
the country, and another 1,000
are in Iranian schools and univer-
sities, the highest percentage of
university students of any ethnic
group in the country. The
number of Jewish doctors,
engineers, architects, professors,
and even government func-
tionaries has been growing
steadily, and many a Jew has
been able to improve his econo-
mic condition.
Except for Turkey, which
regards itself as more Western
than Islamic, Iran is the only
Moslem land that has maintained
extensive if non-official relations
with Israel and has furnished a
substantial part of Israels
domestic oil requirements. In
addition, some Iranian oil going
to the West has passed through
the Israeli pipeline from Eilat on
the Gulf of Aqaba to Israel's
Mediterranean ports.
El Al Israel Airlines has
provided a direct air service
between Teheran and Israel's
Ben Gurion airport and Israeli

men, Sen. Richard Stone (D.,
Fla.) and Rep. James Scheuer
(D., N.Y.) questioned senior
Chinese Foreign Ministry of-
ficials at some length about the
Middle East situation during
their visit.
"I sense that the Chinese
attitude is moving towards
Sadat's approach as compared to
the Palestine Liberation
Organization approach, even
though they paid lip service to
the PLO," said Sen. Stone, who
is chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Sub-Committee on the
Middle East.
He said he felt that "the op-
portunity may soon exist to
discuss the common interests
that both China and Israel have
in resisting Soviet expansion."
HOWEVER, when I asked
Scheuer to confirm that point of
view, he replied: "I didn't detect
any easing at all towards Israel.
They merely repeated the hard-
line PLO rhetoric."
Both Sen. Stone and Rep.
Scheuer are among Israel's best
friends in Congress. During the
course of their conversations with
the Chinese, each encouraged the
Peking leadership to reassess its
attitude towards Israel, given the
fact that the Soviet Union,
China's major rival, continues to
support the radical regimes in the
Arab world.
One possible explanation for
the two legislator's conflicting
Two respected United
States Washington law-
makers, both Jews, have
just returned to Washing-
ton from Peking with dif-
ferent assessments of
China's current attitude
towards the Arab-Israeli
assessments may lie in the fact
that they did not attend all the
same meetings.
SEN. STONE was apparently
privy to some conversations with
senior Chinese officials in which
Scheuer did not participate.
Perhaps the Chinese were more
forthcoming during these private
exchanges than when they met
the entire delegation, which con-
sisted of five Senators and five
There is reason to believe that
Stone scored some points when
he told the Chinese that a PLO-
dominated mini-state on the
West Bank and in the Gaza Strip
would lead to the creation of a
political vacuum which would
quickly be filled by the Soviet
Whether or not the Chinese are
in the process of rethinking their
position on the Middle East is
not yet clear.
THE FACT remains that
shortly after the announcement
of the Camp David agreements,
China issued a statement in
support of Egypt and President
Sadat A high-level delegation
from Peking later visited EjryDt
meeting rum and other senior
Egyptian officials.
Relations between China and
Egypt have been very cordial,
especially since President Sadat
threw some 20,000 Soviet troops
and advisers out of Egypt in
1972. 7F
The chief Chinese represen-
tative in Washington is Chai Tse
Min, a former Ambassador to
Egypt. He is very knowledgeable
about the Middle East, and has
recently departed from the
tradition set by his predecessor
by agreeing to discuss China's
Middle East policy with
American reporters.
them, the official was not simply
"negative" when talking about
Israel All this does not mean
that Israel and China can be
expected to establish diplomatic
ties in the near future. No one
seriously expects such a scenario
to develop, given China's ex-
tensive interest in maintaining
good relations with the Arabs
and the Third World.
Furthermore, veteran
diplomatic observers here note
that the Chinese, increasingly
interested in winning friends and
influencing people in the United
States, particularly since the
U.S. recognition of Mainland
China, may be whispering nice
things about Israel in the ears of
some Americans to try to im-
prove relations with the United
States even further.
In the past, this game has
often been played by the
Russians, who severed ties with
Israel during the 1967 Six-Day
War, and have steadfastly
refused to renew them ever since.

90 Seniors See 'Oklahoma' Jran VoWS End to Flow of Oil
From Miami Beach to Fort
Lauderdale to 'Oklahoma" a
gift of entertainment for 90 senior
citizens of the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Fort Lauder-
dale, was given by Barry Siegel,
vice president of American
Savings and Loan Association,
Miami Beach.
Siegel's donation enabled 90
"seniors" to see Agnes de
Mille's production, Oklahoma at

Performing Arts.
Arrangements for the show
were made by Vilma Bufman,
producer; and Eileen Holland,
assistant producer of Story
Theatre Productions, Inc., (a not
for profit corporation), Parker
Playhouse. Fort Lauderdale.
"Mrs. Bufman and I had felt
that our senior citizens were one
part of our audience that was not
being reached," explained Ms.
Helen Nathan, JCC Senior
Adult Program Supervisor; and
John Staley, senior adult
programmer, coordinated the bus
transportation for the evening.
Comments from the par-
ticipants: Aaron Brown: "I liked
the show; the comedian, the
singing, the dancing; I just liked
all of it." Sol Brenner: "The show
was well presented, but much too
long." Lillian Brenner: "On the
whole, the production, the
costuming, the staging were very
good. "Curly's" voice was
marvelous, especially his diction,
even with the southern accent."

PARIS (JTA) Iran will
cut off all oil to Israel "after the
advent of an Islamic republic" in
Iran, according to Iranian
refugees who have joined
Ayatullah Khoumeini, the exiled
Iranian religious leader who has
become the symbol of resistance
to the Shah, at his home in Neau-
phle-le-Chateau 25 miles south-
west from Paris.
These Iranians do not claim to
act as Khoumeini's spokesmen
but are known to be supporters
and close followers of his cause.
They say openly that "after we
win, not a drop of oil will go to
Israel," and add that Iran will
"join in the struggle to free the
Moslem holy places in Jerusalem
from Israeli rule."
KHOUMEINI has up to now
made only one statement on this
issue, confirming that oil ship-
ments to Israel will cease once a
new Islamic regime takes control.
Iran reportedly now supplies 70
percent of Israel's annual needs.
The exiled leader has refused to
discuss this question further and
has also rejected requests for
interviews from Israeli journal-
ists and representatives of
Jewish newspapers. Members of
his entourage, however, are quite
outspoken. Some assert that "all
Israelis will be chased out of
Iran" once the Shah is deposed
and accuse Israel of serving "as
the tool of American im-
perialism" in Iran.
The New York Times reported
that Khoumeini is quoted as
expressing anti-Jewish senti-
ments in a little known book
based on lectures delivered in
Persian in Iraq in 1970. The book,
Islamic Government, published
in Arabic and reportedly very
rare in the United States and
Iran, quotes him as expressing
"extreme hostility" against

CHAMAHWorks With Russian Emigres
t NEW YORK Some 3,000
recent Soviet immigrants to
Israel received Chanukah
menorahs, and a total of 10,000
gwiet olim participate in
( nanukah celebrations through-
out Israel under the auspices of
CHAMAH, an organization of
Soviet olim to help their fellow
immigrants. This was announced
by David Wassner, president of
\li\AV, Inc. and president of
CHAMAH in the United States.
According to Wassner. "Most
Soviet emigres have had little
exposure to any meaningful
Jewish experience. Thus a
majority choose western
countries over Israel as their des-
tmation when they leave Russia.
CHAMAH, which stands for
Chavurat Mezakei Harabim, is
an organization comprised ex-
clusively of Russian emigres who
have a deep commitment to
Jewish values and who have re-
d bringing others closer to their
f lew ish heritage.
Accordingly, all CHAMAH
Chanukah parties were con-
ducted in Russian and the spirit
,,f Chanukah was conveyed
through celebration, food and
ceremony as well as through
appropriate literature. All CHA-
Traffic is halted at the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station to permit
CHAMAH activists to distribute Chanukah supplies to Soviet
MAH events are planned in a
way which will make the oleh
"The Jewish Agency and official
Israeli bodies have been praising
CHAMAH for helping to lessen
the burdens of the absorption
process for Soviet olim, which
induces the olim to write to their
friends and relatives in the
USSR, encouraging them to
choose Israel as their destination.
"Throughout Israel, there is no
Soviet Jew who has not benefited
either materially, socially or
spiritually from CHAMAH,"
Wassner stated.
In the United States CHA-
MAH is supported by a broad
coalition of concerned Jews who
recognize the need for a self-help
organization like CHAMAH to
cope with the myriad problems
connected with Soviet Aliyah.
...But There's Still No Peace
U.S. Legislators Meet
With Israeli Leaders
JERUSALEM (JTA) A group of seven U.S
Congressmen arrived here from Cairo Monday and me:
with Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Defens
Minister Ezer Weizman before returning to W.shingtoi
The group, headed by Rep. Lawrence McDona! (D., Ga.
was on a mission to Egypt and Israel for I he Hous
Armed Services Committee.
Meanwhile, the Middle East News Agenr reporte
from Cairo that Prime Minister Mustaj> a Khal
presented U.S. Ambassador Hermann Eilts wi h a lettf
for Secretary of State Cyrus Vance stating Eg} pt's view
on the resumption of peace treaty negotia;ions wit!
THE STATE Department's chief spokesman
Hodding Carter, told reporters in Washington last Fridaj
that there would not be any new developments in tht
Middle East peace negotiations until "the first or middk
part of next week.'*
He said, "We have not received a letter from the
Egyptians We have had responses from the Israelis
. But nothing is set."
One member of the Congressional group, Rep.
Donald Mitchell (R., N.Y.), was reported to have said
before he left Cairo that President Anwar Sadat made the
following declaration to the delegation: "I'm ready to sign
(a treaty with Israel) at this moment, right now. What is
happening in Turkey and Iran make it vital that we act
Sadat was also quoted as saying that Iran "has
disappeared" as a buffer to Soviet influence in the Middle
East and urged the U.S. to supply Egypt with new
weapons to defend the region.
Israel has expressed its readiness
to hold further negotiations with
Egypt and with the United
Si ins on several key still-dis-
puled issues in the stalled,
nearly-concluded peace treaty
In a Cabinet communique
plainly designed to prompt
J* >\ ishington into renewed efforts
to resume the talks, Israel is
reiterating its willingness to
negotiate further on Article IV of
the draft peace treaty (the
review clause") and also on the
side letter" setting out
modalities for creation of the
Palestine autonomy.
THERE WAS also an ex-
pression of readiness to discuss
with the U.S. the interpretation
of the vexed and crucially
important Article VI (issue of
priority) of the draft treaty.
But in every case, the Cabinet
emphasized Israel's position,
originally enunciated by the
Cabinet on Dec. 15 after
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's
unsuccessful shuttle mission to
the area. Premier Menachem
Begin, reading out the decision,
stressed that the Cabinet was
reiterating the previous decision
(of Dec. 15) "in all its parts."

That decision listed all of the
Eg) ptian demands, which were
effectively endorsed by Vance,
and specifically rejected them.
The Cabinet decision was
immediately conveyed to
Washington, and Israeli officials
said they now expected the U.S.
to step up its efforts to get the
talks restarted. The decision was
supported by 14 ministers. Israel
Radio said that Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman and Minister-
Without-Portfolio Chaim Landau
did not take part in the vote, and
Agriculture Minister Ariel
Sharon abstained.
expressed "Israel's readiness to
continue negotiations regarding
an agreed formulation of the
accompanying letter. ..." and
immediately added Israel's firm
view that the "side letter" should
contain no "target date" for the
holding of the autonomy elec-
tions, as Egypt (and the U.S.) are
Similarly, the Cabinet decision
expressed specifically and this
is new, not having been men-
tioned in the Dec. 15 decision
readiness to hold further
negotiations on Article IV and
again immediately set out the
Israeli position rejecting any
"definitive, obligatory date
framework." (Egypt is seeking a
specific five-year deadline for a
mandatory "review" of the
security provisions in Sinai.)
On the interpretations to
Article VI, the Cabinet statement
endorsed a letter from Foreign
Minister Moshe Day an to Vance
three days earlier in which Dayan
had "totally rejected" the U.S.
interpretation of Article VI,
Paragraph 5.
"priority of obligations" clause.
The U.S. State Department legal
aide who helped draw up the
treaty, in a written opinion,
effectively updated Egypt's view
that the paragraph would not bar
Egypt from aiding a sister Arab
state that was attacked by Israel.
The second paragraph of
Article VI expressing a legal
severance between the peace
treaty and the Camp David
"framework" agreement on the
Palestinian issue is also in
dispute. The Cabinet, in its
decision, appeared to indicate
that it would be ready for more
talks with the U.S. on both
disputed paragraphs.
In this connection, too,
though, the Cabinet reiterated
firmly Israel's own unlimited"
interpretation of Article VI, thus
setting out in clear terms, in
advance of the hoped-for further
negotiations. Israel's strong
position on this key issue of
IN ALL, the Cabinet decision
represented something of a
softening, in tone if not in
content, of the Israeli position
relative to the brusque and angry
statement issued following
Vance's mission.

spiritual poverty was rampant. It
is because of this spiritual need
that an unusual thing has been
happening. The Jewishness of the
young generation, the post-Viet-
nam kids, has begun to emerge.
FOR SOME, it was perhaps
merely because ethnic identity
was in. For others, it came with
the terrorist attacks on Israel,
assassinations in Munich, im-
prisonment in Russian jails. But
'for the frustrated and the rest-
less, it is usually manifest as a
vague emotion that steers them
toward Israel.
"}, djdn*t know what else to
do," said a pre-med student. "My
peers were too cool about
Judaism, my grandfathers gen-
eration was too remote, and my
father's had watered it down. If
Israel didn't pan out, I was going
to go to India and get stoned."
In an age of the catered Bar
Mitzvah, the acquisition of an
Orthodox education in America is
an unorthodox process. The
majority of American Jews get
their schooling in secular pro-
grams and those who decide to
explore the territory of tradi-
tional yeshivot find them inac-
cessible since these schools ac-
commodate primarily those
brought up in Orthodox families
not as a matter of discrimina-
tion, but simply the way a uni-
versity cannot accommodate an
applicant who has not learned to
read and write. There has just
been no program in yeshivot to
teach fundamentals.
THE RESPONSE to this is a
new type of yeshiva that provides
instruction for those with little or
no Jewish education. The
principle architect is Rabbi
Noach Weinberg, an unusual
combination of force and
tranquility who has got four of
these yeshivot going within the
last decade. Located around
Jerusalem, they have provided a
desperately needed opening for
English-speaking Jews vascillat-
ing between Tel Aviv beaches
and Tibetan mountain ranges.
"The first yeshiva I started,
Mevaseret Yerushalayim, had
only five students in it," said
Rabbi Weinberg. His latest one,
Aish HaTorah, is located in the
Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's
Old City, and also began with a
handful of students. But since
then, "We've had over 8,000
people pass through here in the
last four years. Even if they don't
buy God," he said, "they discover
tools for living, a Jewish identity,
and self-respect as Jews."
Along with the success of
Rabbi Weinberg's yeshivot,
others with similar golas have
opened, built to accommodate
different tastes and tem-
peraments from the counter-cul-
ture to the ultra-Orthodox.
THE AGE of the students
varies from 18 to 65, yet most are
in their twenties with some
college experience, and the routes
they take to the yeshiva are of
infinite variety. They get there
because a friend mentions a place
that gives free food and lodging
in exchange for attendance at a
few classes.
Or they stumble onto a sign in
the Jewish Quarter that says: "If
you haven't been to a yeshiva,
you haven't been to Israel."
Sometimes they are invited to
spend a Sabbath with a religious
family and from there to Aish
HaTorah is a single step. But
whatever the route, the entry into
the yeshiva is startling and
"It looks so innocent," said a
student from California. "You're
looking at these guys in their
yarmulkas. their whole library
occupies a few shelves and you
think: I studied under one of the
best philosophy professors in
North America. What could these
guys tell me about anything?"
"It's an attack of reality, "said
a 28-year-old veteran traveler. "I
wanted to go back home and
report that yes, I'd had a Jewish
experience, thank you. But that
experience is so immense and
encompassing, the antithesis of
everything I'd ever thought and
believed. It threw me headlong
into Jewishness."
was no transition. One moment, I
was outside; then as suddenly I
was in there arguing existen-
tialism with someone who looked
like he'd never opened an English
book in his life."

Totality of commitment at Aish HaTorah
The Judaism of the catered Bar
Mitzvah is gone, and what faces
the new student is 5,000 years of
triumph and sorrow, wisdom,
legal codes, Hebrew and Aramic
that reach through the years to
the desert, Babylon, Egypt.
"I had only one question for
them," said a former Reverend
Moon disciple. "It's enough of a
hassle just being a human being.
Be Jewish yet? That's asking for
a kick in the groin."
What finally emerged for him,
as it has for others, was the
realization that Judaism has an
integrity that cannot be
dismissed once the prejudices are
shattered those distorted
images of ghettos and fanatic old
men that render the beauty of
Torah inaccessible.

In many cases, after repeated attacks, the Ministry is
forced to remove the facility permanently, putting up a
notice in its place to the effect that the removal was
caused by repeated acts of hooliganism, the officials said.
ACCORDING TO the officials, the Ministry lost
some IL 8 million annually as a result of phone van-
dalism. They said that the task of preventing these acts is
too vast for police to handle. It was, one official claimed,
part of a much broader issue of "the ugly Israeli."

The American Jewish Congress has called on
the Toy Manufacturers of America to follow the
lead of the West German Toy Retailer's Associa-

toys bearing Nazi insignia. The ban would include
replicas of arms, pistols, guns, rockets, shells,
military vehicles, tanks, aircraft, warships, and
all packaging showing combat.
Julius Schatz, director of the American Jewish
Congress' Commission on Jewish Life and
Culture, called the German toy retailers' action "a
heartening act of moral responsibility."
He noted that it followed an intensive cam-

sale of swastika-emblazoned toys, widely sold not
only to collectors but to young children.

that his reputation is unassail-

able, both privately and as a
public figure."

Giancarlo Pajetta, often con-

an Arab Ambassador in Rome:

anti-Semitism might well be
represented at the Vatican.
Moreover, you can be sure that

And how about the Jews?
What answers are they finding to
their traditional question: "good
or bad" for them?
IN A well-wishing message
after his election, the Union of
Italian-Jewish Communities
stated: "Italian Jews are con-
scious of your tenacious defense
of civil rights, and express
solidarity for your renewed
pledge to strive for peace, justice
and human solidarity in the spirit
of the Vatican Ecumenical
Council, of which the document
Nostra Aetate is a relevant part.'
It was meant to manifest the
hope that he would pursue the
Catholic-Jewish dialogue, and
would spur the implementation
also of the Ecumenical Council's
document on the Jews," aimed at
erasing anti-Jewish prejudice
from Catholic mentality.

chapters. and recalled the

could be read between the lines of

THERE IS in fact evidence
that Pope John Paul II "s record
during the Nazi occupation of
Poland was "clear and unambi-

Recently, Moslem officials in
one earthquake-ravaged town
spurned relief supplies sent by
the Jewish community of
Teheran, and in certain cities, like
Isfahan, Jewish community
leaders have reported that some
Moslems simply will not eat in
restaurants that have served
Jewish clients, for fear of
"contamination." Isfahan always
has been a particularly funda-
mentalist stronghold, but one
cannot but be concerned at any
revival of a view that regards
Jews as inferior.
This traditional discriminatory
attitude was one of the factors
that led Jews to come down from
the more backward and remote
villages in recent years and move
to the major cities and from there
to flock to Teheran, where one
finds about three-quarters of the
80,000 Jews in the country.
Shiraz has about 8,000 and
Isfahan less than 4,000 a
decline from 15,000 in 1948.
THE HOSTILE attitude
among the religious fundamenta-
lists to Israel and toward Jews
who support Israel is illustrated
by a comment made recently to
visiting journalist Joseph Kraft
by Ayatollah Shariat-Maderi, the
religious leader of Qum, a holy
city near Teheran. In response to
a question on the treatment of
religious minorities, the
Ayatollah said that they would
be treated equally with Moslems,
"unless they become a fifth
column working for interests
outside the country. For in-
stance, the Jews would be ac-
cepted as Jews, but not as
dt lenders of Zionist aggression."

Holocaust was shared also by
Poles. Three million of them were
killed, like the Jews. From this
common tragedy a new solidarity
was born. I know of people who
were anti-Semitic before the war,
and later during the Nazi oc-
cupation paid with their lives for
help they had given to Jews.
WILL THE Vatican establish
diplomatic relations with Israel
under the new Pope?
"Who knows?" Dr. Turowicz
said. "Pope John Paul II has a
prophetic vision of the church's
role in the world. But in-
ternational political problems are
new to him. and he needs time to
learn. He is not a revolutionist,
and will not hasten to change
everything. I do not believe he
will take some decision very soon
on the Middle East, but I am
optimistic about the future. I
would say that chances that he
may visit Lebanon are 50-50."
And how about Jerusalem?
"There is nothing in the Pope's
life since his childhood which
could be criticized. There are
facts proving that absolutely
nothing in his life can possibly
arouse uneasiness in the Jewish
community." He said he felt sure
that the Pope would soon grant
an audience to representatives of
United States Jews.
"He never spoke about the
issue. His problems in Krakow
were the church's relations with
the Polish State, not with the rest
of the world. Probably, the
solution he would prefer, in
theoretical terms, would be an
internationalization of the Holy
City. However, the Pope is a
realist." Dr. Turowicz concluded.
cerning the new Pope's attitude
toward the Jews are "totally
unfounded" according to Polish-
born Dr. Karl Lichten, B'nai
B'rith representative in Rome.

But Falashas See Selves Barred
The Cabinet has decided to admit
100 Vietnamese refugees to Israel
as a symbolic humanitarian
gesture aimed at influencing
other countries to take similar
action. It also discussed the
increasingly urgent problem of
the Falashas, the Jews of
Ethiopia, who are seeking to
come to Israel, but no decisions,
if any, were announced.
Some 150 Falashas demon-
strated outside the Prime
Minister's Office while the Cabi-
net was in session, calling for the
government's help to bring their
persecuted brethren out of
Ethiopia to Israel.
THE DECISION on the Viet
in that country since Emperor
Haile Selassie was deposed in
1974 and replaced by a military
regime. Their communities have
been pillaged; hundreds, if not
thousands, have been massacred;
and thousands more sold into
slavery, according to the reports.
In 1975, the Israeli rabbinate
decided that the Falashas, who
are Black, are legitimate Jews.
But, their spokesmen here
charge, little effort was made to
bring them to Israel. Meanwhile,
the Israeli government supported
the Ethiopian government in its
war with the Arabbacked
Somalis, they say.
Prime Minister Menachem
We re serving champagne on non-
stops to Chicago, Detroit, New York,
Boston, Hartford/Springfield and
Philadelphia. On the house, of
course. Even in Tourist. Even at Super
Saver Eares.
Begin met with leaders of the
Falasha community in Israel last
namese was announced by Cabi- Friday Hetto,d then\ that the
net Secretary Arye Naor. H.^ 8ment. le*arde stressed that it was a symbolic
act for other nations to follow.
"We remember the experience of
our brethren during World War
II who were seeking in vain for
shelter." he told reporters. He
said that if the Vietnamese
wished to apply for Israeli
citizenship they would be
welcome to do so.
There are presently some 5,000
Vietnamese refugees who have
spent the past several weeks
aboard two freighters, one in
Manila and the other anchored
off Hong Kong. A government
chartered plane will fly to Manila
shortly to airlift the 100 selected
A committee composed of the
directors general of various
ministries is making the technical
arrangements, Naor said.
apparently spurred to act by
"peace pilot" Abie Nathan who
has been conducting a world-wide
campaign on behalf of the
refugees from Vietnam. Nathan
made a formal request to the
government last week to admit
400 of the refugees from the ship
in Manila.
He said that several Dutch
philanthropists had pledged
$200,000 to pay for the airlift.
Nathan received the Cabinet
decision with mixed feelings. He
said he had hoped that all 400
would be admitted to Israel but
since the number was limited to a
token 100 he would try to per-
suade various European govern-
ments to receive the others.
Naor insisted that there was
"no connection" between
Nathan's initiative and the
Cabinet's decision. He said the
issue had been raised at a Cabinet
meeting about two months ago
and referred also to a Parlia-
mentary question or the subject
by two Likud MKs six weeks
HE SAID Nathan was "a good
citizen" but appeared to dis-
parage the "wide publicity" that,
he said, Nathan had secured for
his activities on behalf of the
Vietnamese refugees.
The Cabinet vote was 11-2 with
four abstentions, according to
Naor. Religious Affairs Minister
Aharon Abu Hatzeira of the
National Religious Party and
Housing Minister Gideon Patt of
Likud voted against the airlift on
grounds that Israel should not
become involved in a refugee
problem that was beyond its
ability to solve.
Three of the four abstaining
were Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan, Interior Minister Yosef
Burg and Agriculture Minister
Ariel Sharon. The fourth minister
abstaining was not identified.
The majority of the Cabinet,
however, felt Israel should set a
moral example in this instance.
Falashas is more troublesome to
the government. According to
reports from Ethiopia, the
Falashas have been the principal
victims of the internecine warfare
Falashas as Jews and expressed
the hope that all will eventually
immigrate to Israel. But for the
time being, he urged them to
keep a low profile in their cam-
paign. The Falasha leaders
rejected this. They charged that
neither the government nor the
Zionist institutions had done
much to rescue Ethiopian Jews.
shouted in Amharic: "Begin,
hear our voice and save
our brothers." They waved signs
saying "SOS" and "Begin: Let
My People Come." One demon-
strator told reporters, "We have
done our share. We served in the
army and now we want our
families and people. The Israel
government should assist us just
