In this case, Khashoggi is
particularly useful. Six years

Dutch Writer
Heads JDL
In Holland
Hans Knoop, a Dutch Jewish
journalist whose articles in 1976
led to the arrest of Nazi war
criminal Pieter Menten, has
revealed himself as organizer of a
"Jewish Defense League" in
Holland with the stated purpose
of reacting physically to verbal
manifestations of anti-Semitism.
His group has claimed credit
for stoning the editorial offices of
the daily Haagse Post two weeks
ago after the newspaper pub-
lished interviews with several
Dutch soldiers in the United
Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) who made
anti-Semitic remarks.
Knoop, 35, who is active in the
Dutch branch of Herut, first
made his disclosure in an inter-
view published last week in the
weekly EUeviers. Several days
ago a group of about 30 persons
declared themselves members of
the Dutch JDL, among them
Knoop and Charlie Nenner, 28,
who described himself as a
medical student.
Soref, Brodzki Host
Brunch for Leaders
Sam and Helen Soref and
Jacob and Peggy Brodzki, in the
true spirit of commitment to
making the Jewish Community
Center all that it can be, hosted a
brunch for a group of JCC leaders
at the Perlman Campus on
Wednesday, July 11. Their goal
was to further inspire those
present to reach others within the
community with information
about the needs and purposes of
the center.
The brunch / meeting stressed
the needs of a JCC if it is to
develop Jewish life and attitudes.
"This is only the beginning of a
"hot summer campaign.' We
know that there are more leaders,
more supporters and many more
potential members in the com-
munity. JCC plans to reach them
all," said the co-hosts.
Tours to see the entire campus
can be arranged by calling Sandy
Jackowitz at 792-6700.
Ruth Rosenberg, the guest
speaker, spoke glowingly of what
a JCC can do for a community.
"It is the catalyst that can bind
the Jewish community. It doesn't
replace the synagogues and
temples. Rather, it can only
reinforce and bring unity to our
Jewish community," Mrs.
Rosenberg stated.
Sidney Elkman. received the
plaudits of the crowd for his
untiring efforts in remodeling
and refurbishing the building
on the JCC Campus. Sidney is
the volunteer general contractor
who puts in a full day's work each
and every day, and the ciowd
acknowledged that hod it not
been for Elkman. the JCC would
not have opened in time for the
Day Camp.
"There is definitely a sense of
purpose, a positive attitude and a
great spirit in all of us who realize
the vast importance of the JCC
and the effect it will have on the
community," said Brodzki and

Move to Increase Funds
For Nazi Prosecution Here
WASHINGTON (JTA) An amendment pro-
posed by Reps. Elizabeth Holtzman (D., N.Y.) and
William Lehman (D., Fla.) increasing funding for the
investigation and prosecution of suspected Nazi war
criminals living in the United Sates overwhelmingly
passed the House July 12 .
The amendment raises the amount appropriated for
Nazi investigations in fiscal year 1980 from $1.5 to $2.3
million. -
IN OFFERING the amendment, Holtzman told the
House: "My amendment is necessary to assure that the
Nazi investigations unit has adequate funding to com-
plete its cases expeditiously. Given the number of cases
which need investigation, the delays already encountered,
and the ages of the suspects and witnesses involved, it is
imperative that the office be fully staffed and operational
In his statement, Lehman said: "Since the end of
World War II, more than 200 individuals accused of direct
complicity in genocide and other Nazi crimes have lived
with impunity in America.
THE FAILURE to prosecute them or to take steps
to withdraw American citizenship where they have ob-
tained it by fraud and denial of their past record is un-
worthy of the high human rights ideals of our country.
For crimes of the magnitude of the Holocaust, the exercise
of justice must prevail. And we are morally bound to
support that effort until the job is done."
The Holtzman-Lehman amendment also added $2.3
million to the appropriation for the Criminal Division in
the Department of Justice to which the Nazi unit has
recently been transferred from the Immigration and
Naturalization Service.

help the Jewish educator make

by providing two in-depth essays
on each new publication by
qualified specialists in the field of
study being evaluated."
He said that while school
personnel "by no means suffer
from a dearth of publications in

are in great need of an
'educational consumer's report'
to guide them on the scholarly
accuracy, instructional
suitability and efficacy as

of himself; Dr. Frost; Ezra
Perkal, director of pedagogic
resources for the Chicago BJE;
and other leading Jewish scholars
and educators.
The Review's first issue, sche-
duled for publications this fall,
will be distributed without coat

One Paper Remains
Time Takes Its Toll on the Yiddish Press
The Yiddish press was a
powerhouse of influence during
and for years after the massive
immigration of Jews to the
United States. At one time, in the
1920s, no less than seven Yiddish
dailies were published in New
York City. Sinoe few if any of the
immigrants read English,
everyone read one or more of the
Yiddish papers.
The most successful and
?opular dailies were The Day or
ag; The Tageblat: The Jewish
Morning Journal and the most
famous of all. The Jewish Daily
The Forward, housed in a 10-
story edifice, then the tallest
building on the lower East Side,
had its name emblazoned with
electric lights in both Hebrew
and English letters so large that
the sign could be read from all
three bridges connecting with
Brooklyn. The Jewish populace
was deeply moved by the Hebrew
characters flashing across
Manhattan ... a sight that could
not happen in any of the lands
from which these immigrants had
SINCE THE Forward was
enjoying the largest readership of
all the Yiddish newspapers, its
editor, Abraham Cahan, wielded
tremendous influence in the
Jewish community. He was the
acknowledged authority and
leader in the Yiddish press ... he
shook strike rallies with the
thunder of his oratory; poured
out editorial copy, feature
stories, political comment and
book and drama reviews with
unquestioned judgments!
His utterances had the force of
Vatican encyclicals, affecting the
thinking of American socialism,
the fate of embattled factions in
American labor, causing the rise
and fall of union officials end
closing a play or banishing a
theater star from Second Avenue.
Apart from this, he also
produced an autobiography, a
half-dozen novels and a host of
short stories in both Yiddish and
English. His novel, The Rise of
David Levinshy, depicting the
plight of the Eastern European
immigrants, ha3 become a minor
American classic.
Over the years he tightened his
control over editorial policies to
such an extent that Cahan was
able to operate the paper without
any interference from the
publisher and did not have to
answer to a cost-conscience board
of directors as did all the other
Yiddish editors.
As a result, he was able to
introduce revolutionary changes
to The Forward ... he freely
adopted features from the Hearst

The first Small City
Executives Institute to be

Aug. 16 to 26 under the joint
sponsorship of the Council of
Jewish Federations and JWB, in
cooperation with United Jewish

Institute for Leadership
Development of the Jewish
Agency for Israel.
The institute is open to
executive directors of Jewish
Federations and Jewish Com-
munity Centers in 115 com-
munities in the U. S. and Canada
with a Jewish population of 5,000
or under.

ticipants to experience first hand

chairman, Leslie Gottlieb,

Schreier and Arthur Brodkin,
staff coordinators, respectively,

to strike out of their copy all
words that might exceed the
comprehension of the least
among his readers ... he would
test copy on peddlers, waiters
and elevator operators in the
Forward building to make certain
that each word was understood.
As a result, The Forward
became known as the "plain
Yiddish" paper, as opposed to
the "pure" Yiddish of his
competitors. His policy of giving
by-lines to his writers brought
forth a surge of would-be-
newspapermen to The Forward
staff. Bearing in mind that
writers enjoyed high social status
in the immigrant community, the
meager salaries were of secon-
dary importance to his writing
Of course, he also had an elite
corps of fiction writers of true
stature like Abraham Reisen,
Sholem Asch, I. J. Singer and
Yona Rosenfeld.
Chan obviously relished his
constant tormenting of these
writera by one day praising them
as Tolstois, Dos toe v skies and
Chekoys, and the next day
returning manuscripts with
notations of "unprintable." Only
Sholom Asch had the "chutzpa"
to walk out on Cahan after years
silent obedience.
Cahan s formula of mixing the
highbrow and lowbrow was
adapted, in varied degrees, by all
other Yiddish papers, but The
Forward remained the leading
Yiddish publication.
Time, however, has taken its
' toll on the Yiddish press The
Tageblat merged with The
Jewish Morning Journal, now out
of business and in the 1960s The
Day merged with The Forward,
leaving Cahan's Jewish Daily
Forward as the sole surviving
Yiddish daily newspaper in the
iUnited States today.
CRC Action Message
The folowing telegram was sent to President Carter by
Theodore Mann, chairman of the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.
Dear Mr. President:
We applaud your forthright statement of the major issues
facing the nation, and command the outline of your program to
deal with the vital question of energy policy.
We join with you in the faith that the American people will
respond to the need for equitable sacrifice by all segments in the
common effort to achieve the national goal of reducing our
dependence on foreign oil.
The Jewish community relations field, as represented by
the NJCRAC, is committed to a policy, and has embarked on
programs, making energy one of our major priorities. We can
assure you of the support to these ends of the 11 national
organizations and 107 local community agencies which have
always worked for a free, just and strong America.

Unthinkable Progress
It is a mark of the times that Europe now has a
Parliament and is heading toward a federation of nations
beyond the wildest dreams of those who originally worked
for the establishment of the European Economic Com-
The history of Europe, with its ancient national
antagonisms and wars that, in the twentieth century,
engulfed the whole world twice, gives hardly any in-
dication at all that so remarkable an achievement as a
European Parliament could have been made barely 35
years after the second of these world wars.
It is an even more profound mark of the times that a
woman should be elected president of the Parliament
Simone Veil, of France. And that the woman should be
Women's representation in the highest councils of the
world political arena, including Margaret Thatcher's
recent election as Prime Minister of England, and
Europe's election of a Jewish woman as its parliamentary
president must be viewed in light of the historical per-
spective that past absurdities are indeed past.
One finally hopes that not only has Europe set its
ancient internal antagonisms aside, but that the vicious
anti-Semitism that sent six-million Jews to their deaths
and Simone Veil herself to a Nazi concentration camp
whose certain doom she managed to survive, is also an
unthinkable thing for the new European future.
He Looked to Himself
Rabbi Joseph Lookstein was senior rabbi at one of the
idest and most distinguished synagogues in the nation,
ongregation Kehilath Jeshurun in New York City.
As a world-renowned Zionist leader, his Jewish ideals
took him to Israel, where he served as chancellor of Bar-
Ilan University in Ramat-Gan, and prior to that, he served
as: s president.
There is not much limit to the energy and the vision
of men of great achievement. Rabbi Lookstein was one of
these men. In his last years, he gave distinction to South
Florida by choosing Miami Beach as his home.
We are saddened because now he is gone, but even
before he passed away, his ambition to communicate his
Jewish idealism was such that he was at work on a book
entitled God Owes Me Nothing.
In death, he taught us all that the meaning of our lives
must come from ourselves, and that we can not shout to
the heavens if the meaning eludes us. We must look to
ourselves, as Rabbi Lookstein looked to himself
throughout his own life to teach. And to lead.
An Alarming Trend
The increasing manifestations of anti-Semitism in
Soviet books and other media is an alarming trend. The
Soviet Union, while allowing more Jews to emigrate in an
obvious attempt to placate the United States and receive
Most Favored Nation trade benefits, is at the same time
increasing its attacks on Jews.
Officially sponsored anti-Semitism, which has been in
evidence since the 1967 Six-Day-War, appears to be
growing, sometimes, but not always, thinly disguised as
an ti -Zionism.
This trend was recently condemned by Rep. Dante
Fascell (D., Fla.) and Sen. Claiborne Pell (D., R.I.), the
chairmen of the U. S. Commission of Security and
Cooperation in Europe which monitors the compliance
with the Helsinki agrements. They called the increasing
anti-Semitism in the USSR "alarming" and a "virulent
Probably the most prehensive part of the anti-
Semitic campaign is the linking of Zionism and Judaism
with facism and the Nazis. This is especially repulsive
from a country that has sought to obliterate the fact of the
murder of millions of Russian Jews by the Nazis and the
country that signed a pact with Hitler which opened the
way for the destruction of Polish Jewry, as well as all
European Jewry.

whom you talk to.
Immanuel Birnbaum, a senior
editor of SUddeutsche Zeitung of
Munich, one of the world's great
and authoritative newspapers,
dismisses Springer and his
publishing chain with a wry smile
from which one is meant to infer
profound distaste. He says
nothing else, perhaps because he
is a holder of one of Germany's
outstanding awards for jour-
nalistic achievement, the

Springer creation dating from

Springer as if he were a world
leader, an earth-shaker, a human
deity. Lynch is in the Infor-
mation Department of the Axel
Springer empire quartered in its
own skyscraper here on the
Kochstrasse right at the wall
separating this city from East
Berlin which the Communists
built back in 1961.
Lynch says that Springer
chose this site symbolically to
put up his building. The foun-
dationstone was laid on May 25,
1959. That was two days before
he even gets a chance to scale the
wall upon which he is doomed to
be machine gunned to death,

Joycean parallel complete, Lynch

a good deal of operatic training in
Italy- And he appeared, among
other places, at the Deutsche
Oper Berlin.
THAT'S HOW he came to the
Springer publishing empire in the
first place back in 1989. "After
my singing career, I worked for a
while as an opera critic," he
explains. His journalistic ex-
perience before that had its
wartime roots in the British
Military Government, where he
worked as a cultural affairs of-

he reminisces, but his Irish

feeling of building up. That's
when the Germans were at their

"Mostly, it is gone now. The

the city, but ideals buried in the

alliteration and a metaphor on
top of that). The working class is
prosperous. Do you realize in our

Springer, with overtime an
employe can take home from 3-
5,000 DM a month (approx.
$2,5000)? What we have now is
not excitement, but a hectic way
of life, amassing material things.
That is very different from
rebuilding a city. And ideals."

same in Israel. Young Israelis

Lynch's reference to Israel is
not gratuitous. Axel Springer

day for seven years, a man in
New York wore a bracelet on his
wrist, hoping that one day he
would no longer need to wear it.
Just five words were inscribed on
it: Boris Penson. June 15. 1970.
This simple silver bracelet linked
them together.
On April 29. 1979. Boris
Penson. Prisoner of Zion in
Russia, became Boris Penson.
free man in Israel. The moment
Penson reached Israel, Irving
Bernstein, executive vice
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal, took off the bracelet that
had become an integral part of
his life. Five weeks later, in Israel
for the Jubilee Assembly of the
Jewish Agency, he shared the joy
of freedom with the man behind
the seven-year vigil.
Meeting on July 2 for the first
time, the two men spontaneously
and warmly embraced in the
entrance to the Netanya apar-
tment where Penson is living
with his mother. With his wife,
Judy, smiling broadly as she
watches, Bernstein keeps
shaking his head and saying, "I
just can't believe I am finally
seeing you, Boris, and in Israel.''
SPEAKING IN Russian, the
33-year-old Penson says,
"Meeting Bernstein is a very
happy experience for me. Thanks
to people like him in America and
in the free world, all the efforts
made on my behalf were worth-
while I am no longer in prison, I
am free now."
On June 15, 1970, in
Leningrad, when he and nine
other Soviet Jews set out to
commandeer a Russian plane and
fly it to Israel via Sweden,
Penson did not expect to spend a
day in prison. He would either be
living free in Israel, he felt, or be
shot dead by the Soviets.
Retelling the story, Penson
emphasized that the group did
not plan to hijack the plane. "We
had purchased all 17 seats on the
plane," he says. "One of our
group, Mark Dymshitz, was a
pilot and would fly it. The airline
pilot would be taken off and
given a sleeping bag and blankets
to keep him warm. No one was
going to have his life placed in
jeopardy except for the 10 of us."
Penson was 23 when im-
prisoned with the other nine.
Their plight helped galvanize
worldwide support for Soviet
Jewish Prisoners of Zion. When
silver bracelets were made with
the names of the prisoners and
the dates of their arrest, Bern-
stein decided to wear Penson's
because he identified most closely
with him. Penson was young at
the time of his imprisonment and
Berstein had two young sons. In
addition, Penson was a painter in
Riga before going to prison; Judy
Berstein is a sculptor.
THE BRACELET caught the
eyes of people all over the world,
wherever the widely-traveled
UJ A executive went. Many, after
hearing Boris Penson's story,
would ask him for one. "People
all around the world," Bernstein
says, "became concerned about
Boris and the other prisoners
because of the bracelets.
Penson's bracelet was special
to Bernstein and his family. He
wore it every day for seven years.
"It was like a constant prayer,"
he recalls. "Wearing Boris'

Silver Prisoner-of-Zion bracelets worn by UJA executive vice
chairman Irving Bernstein are shown above. Bracelet bearing
the name of Boris Penson, one of 10 Soviet Jews imprisoned for
1970 attempt at flight to freedom, was exchanged after Pen-
son's recent release for bracelet inscribed with name of Josif
Mendelvich, last of the 10 remaining in Soviet prison.

executive vice chairman, Irving Bernstein, who wore silver
bracelet bearing Penson's name during seven-year freedom
bracelet as well as owning two of
his paintings (bought from Boris'
mother) made me feel very close
to him."
When the day of release came,
Bernstein joyfully arranged to
have the bracelet brought to the
artist. While in prison, Penson
had received letters from Bern-
stein and other people all over the
world who were wearing his
bracelet. The letters played ar.

was a Sunday. They told me I
was being sent to another prison
in Riga. They never told me why
or what for. They never do.
Everything of mine was taken
from rae, including my diaries.
"At Riga, they thrust a piece
of paper at me with Brezhnev's
signature on it. I was to be
released and had 10 days to leave
the country. At first I could not
fully comprehend those words."
Penson feels that a decisive
factor in his release was the
pressure the American govern-
ment put on the Russians
during various negotiations.
"And behind that pressure, were
the voices of Jews in America and
around the world." he says.
Seven days later Penson was in
Israel, at home with his mother.
"It was like a dream come true. I
was going to live in Israel. I kept
waking up and asking myself.
Am I really free?"
moved by Penson's release:
"Boris had become a part of our
family. When I heard the news, I
cried tears of joy. His dream had
come true. His release had special
meaning to me often wearing his
bracelet for all those years. It was
all worthwhile."
At age 33, Boris Penson is
beginning to paint again. For-
bidden to practice this art for
nine years, he is working on
illustrations for a book on prison
life being written by Eduard
Kuzenetsov, a fellow Prisoner of
One of Penson's main priorities
now is to help get other Jews out
of Russia, especially Ida Nudel
who is in a Siberian labor camp.
He recently donated one of his
paintings for a fund-raising
auction in her behalf, raising
almost $ 1,300.
When asked about the future
of Russia Jewry, Penson says,
"They don't have a future. They
should come to Israel if they
want to remain Jews. There is no
alternative for them."
NO SOONER did Berstein
take off Penson's bracelet than he
replaced it with one bearing the
name of Josif Mendelevich, the
only one of the Leningrad group
still in prison." I will now wear
his bracelet until he too is
released," he says. "I am con-
fident he will get out. I only hope
it is soon."
Before Bernstein left the
Netanya apartment. Penson gave
him a message to take to
American Jews: "Tell them
thank you. American Jews were
one of the most active groups on
my behalf. I can't name all the
people who wrote me, but I
appreciate every letter. It is true,
I believe, that all Jews, no matter
where they are in the world, are

"Knowing that so many people
cared about me helped very
much," he says. "I felt the
support of world Jewry, and
especially the support of the
State of Israel."
APRIL 22, 1979. Everything
that happened on the day of his
release remains vivid in Penson's
mind. "I was called into the
prison office and saw all the big
bosses standing there. I knew
something must be up because it
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Several weeks ago I read an
article in your paper relating to
the tragic fate of 7.000 Ethiopian
Jewish refugees whose fate may
be slavery. I was so moved by
this item that I wrote to every
Jewish organization I could think
of, even the Minister of
Immigration and Absorption of
Israel stressing the need for
world Jewry to become aware of
this tragedy and for all of us to
rally forth and come to the aid of
these unfortunate peoples by
writing to our president,
congressmen, etc.
I also wrote to President
Carter, Secretary Vance, my
senators and congressman and
Senator Javits of New York
suggesting that the United
States airlift thesl refugees out of
Ethiopia into Israel.
It is now a month since I wrote
these letters and the only reply
has been that from the World
Zionist Organization and I quote:
"I can quite assure you
that the Prime Minister of
Israel and the Jewish
Agency are not sitting by
idly while our brethren in
Ethiopia are living such an
unhappy life. As you no
doubt know, they are not
permitted to leave nor are
any Ethiopians. Unfor-
tunately, even the U. S.
Government has no in-
fluence on this regime."

There is growing concern for

The Fate of Jewish Culture in the Soviet Union
Twenty-seven years ago on
Aug. 12, 1952 24 leading
Yiddish writers, actors and in-
tellectuals were executed by the
Soviet Government. This was the
ultimate expression of Stalin's
quest to eradicate Jewish culture.
Judaism and Jewish con-
sciousness, and Soviet policy has
basically never changed.
Shortly after the Declaration of
Rights of the Peoples of Russia,
signed by Lenin in November
1917, there were 11 daily Yiddish
newspapers; about 60 weekly and
monthly journals; numerous
Jewish theaters and flourishing
publishing houses, printing
dozens of Yiddish titles annuaHy,
in editions reaching millions.
I lardly a city of reasonably sized
Jewish population was without a
Jewish educational establish-
ment. Jewish cultural and
literary activities were widely
carried out, although strictly
within prescribed party rules.
Stalin began a drive to
systematically dismantle Jewish
cultural institutions. By 1948.
the Teachers Institute of Kiev,
the last existing Jewish in-
stitution of higher learning in the
USSR, was closed. Afterwards a
decree was issued that all
theaters in the USSR must
become self-supporting: that is,
"to operate on an independent
budget.'' Only the theaters of
minority groups were eligible for
support, but the authorities ruled
that the Jewish (Yiddish) State
Theatre in Moscow was not
considered a minority group
theater, therefore the govern-
ment subsidies were withheld.
'Cruel Campaign
Soviet Anti-Semitism Seen Taking Sharp Rise
The co-chairmen of the U. S.
Commission on Security and
Cooperation in Europe have
strongly condemned the latest
manifestations of anti-Semitism
in the Soviet Union as "Alarm
ming" and a "crulent campaign."
Rep. Dante Fascell (D.. Fla.)
who heads the panel that
monitors compliance with the
Helsinki agreement signed by 35
nations including the Soviet
Union, and Sen. Claiborne Pell
(D., R. I.), the co-chairman,
issued separate statements
assailing the Soviet propaganda
against Jews.
"Soviet anti-Semitism, in both
official and unofficial varieties,
has taken a new and unsettling
form, and the "official campaign

intense this year," according to
news reports from Moscow.

'Settlements Really
Annoy People'
Hikmat Al-Massri, the former
chairman of the Jordanian
Parliament, told Israel Radio
here he joined the anti-
settlements demonstrations in
Nablus because "the settlements
really annoy the people." Al-
Massri was one of the Nablus
leaders who were summoned to
the Military Government for
their participation in the
"There is no longer
moderation," he said. "All the
people here, whether moderates
or radical, seek self-
determination. Therefore there is
no difference between moderates
and radicals in pursuing the
ultimate object of self-
determination," he said.
Al-Massri said since self-
dtermination was the key issue,
he did not see any prospects for
Palestinian participation in the
autonomy talks, unless it was
agreed that after a transitional
period, the Palestinians were
granted self-determination.
HE SAID that if Israel agreed
to this, even the Palestine
Liberation Organization might
join the talks. "If they (the PLO)
are no convinced, we will go and
convince them," he said.
However, he said he was not
hopeful, because he charged that
Israel did not show good will
toward the Palestinians. Among
the major obstacles he said was
continued Israeli claim for the
territories, and primarily the
question of the settlements.
"Settlement after settlement
after settlement ... the set-
tlements issue is very im-
portant," he declared. "As long
as you say that you will continue
with the settlements, you are
actually saying that the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip is part
of Israel."

The painting, entitled
"Summer Theater," was part of a
collection showing Nazi
brutalities during the Nazi oc-
cupation of Russia.
"The recent reports of in-
creased anti-Semitism in the
Soviet Union is alarming,"
Fascell said. "It is clear that this
latest surge is not solely an
expression of spontaneous
popular feeling but rather an
officially sanctioned campaign.
Soviet authorities have en-
couraged this vituperative
sentiment by allowing the
publication and exhibition of
blatantly anti-Semitic literature
and art work.
NOTING THAT some of the
anti-Semitic material currently
being circulated in the Soviet
Union contains accusations
reminiscent of the notorious
Protocols of the Elders of Zion,
Pell commented: "If this virulent
campaign is an attempt to
discourage Jews from
emigrating, Soviet authorities

also seen as related to the

ground that elements in the
Soviet government wish to get

because they are considered a
potential "fifth column" in the
event of war with the West.

denunciations allege that harmful
Jewish influences are within the
politburo itself, although Jews
long ago ceased to have any
participation there.
"A principal ingredient" in the
anti-Semitism "appears to be the
careful balancing act regarding
Jewish emigration forced on the
Kremlin," according to a report
received here. "While seeking to
placate the United States to gain
better trade terms by raising
Jewish emigration, the Soviets
also must please their Arab allies
who staunchly oppose the
strengthening of Israel which
emigration can earn for the
Jewish State."
WHILE anti-Semitic books
and other media has grown
continuously in Moscow since the
Six-Day War, it is reported, new
additions have emerged in recent
months. Officially they are
labeled anti-Zionist, since Soviet
officials reject the view that anti-
Zionism means anti-Semitism.
"But to many Soviet Jews it is a
distinction without a difference,"
the report says.
The Soviet Academy of
Sciences early this year published
45,000 copies of a book entitled
The Ideology and Practice of
International Zionism. It attacks
Judaism as a religion and alleges
"Zionist centers" control
Western media.
Another publication, by
Yevgeny S. Yevseyev, entitled
Zionism in the Chain of
Imperialism, calls Zionism "the
worst form of fascism, the most
dangerous of all fascist forms."
FOR MANY Soviet Jews, the
current anti-Semitic campaign
was signalled early this year with
publication by the official
"Jurists Publishers" of 15,000
copies of The White Booh of
"evidence, facts and documents"
that tries to link "Zionists" in the
Soviet Union to the U. S. in-
telligence agents.
"Jewish parents say this overt
anti-Semitism is bolstered by
hidden but ever-rising barriers
against their children in
universities," the report said.
"They say only a handful of
young Jews are now admitted to
science and mathematics
faculties at prestigious Moscow
State University and institutes of
higher learning where Jews have
traditionally excelled. The
parents say such impediments
are more severe now than at any
time since the early 1960s." That

In the winter of 1948-49, it is
estimated that over 431 Jewish
artists, writers and musicians
were arrested, most of whom died
in labor camps. However, the fate
of the most prestigious Jewish
intellectuals was reserved for the
summer of 1952.
The "Jewish trial" began on
July 11, 1952, and lasted until the
18th. Among the 25 accused were-
the leading Jewish poets and
writers in the USSR and several
renowned academics and
physicians. The accused were
charged with being "Rebels"
(Buntovshchiki), who wished by
armed rebellion to separate
Crimea from the Soviet Union
and to establish their own
"Jewish bourgeois national
Zionist republic;" were agents of
"American imperialism" and
called "enemies of the USSR."
The "Court," on July 18, 1952,
pronounced its verdict the

sentenced to a long prison term.

In West Palm Beach
Concert to Benefit 'Boat People'
On Sunday. Aug. 12, at 3 p.m. Temple Beth El
of West Palm Beach, will host a community-wide
benefit concert and rally for the Indochinese
refugees (the "Boat People"). Proceeds will go to
the Committee to Rescue Indochinese Refugees.
The concert features guest artist Michael
Dadap at the guitar. Dadap. who is half Chinese,
has been called "a sensitive player, particularly
effective in slow music," by New York Times
critic Allen Hughes.
Having performed several times at Carnegie
Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the United Nations and
Georgetown University, Dadap is on the music
faculty at Rutgers University.
In addition to hearing the classical guitarist's
concert the Temple Beth El audience will meet
two Vietnamese couples who have been residing
in the Palm Beach area. Guest speakers from the
clergy, political circles and those directly involved
in the rescue of the "Boat People" will speak.
The "Boat People" are Vietnamese refugees
who are fleeing their homeland on anything that
floats. They are suffering from overcrowding in
camps, from hunger and unsanitary conditions.
Almost half of those who flee are dying at sea.
The board of director of Temple Beth El, along
with Cantor Blaine Shapiro, overwhelmingly
agreed to hold this benefit concert and rally
because, as Cantor Shapiro explains, "We feel it
is a humanitarian purpose to present this issue to
the entire Palm Beach community. The Viet-
Michael Dadap
namese situation can almost be compared to that
of Jews during the Holocaust. Tens of thousands
of Indochinese refugees are hungry and
homeless." Cantor Shapiro continues, "Jewish
responsibility is a humanitarian one Whenever a
human being is in trouble we must come to help."

Mark Dymshitz (left), a former Soviet Prisoner of Conscience who now lives in Israel
with his family, is shown in Milwaukee at a recent speaking engagement. He had
been free for only a few weeks after nine years in a Soviet labor camp, where he was
sentenced after he and 11 others were arrested in 1979 for trying to flee the Soviet
Union in a government airline plane. On a Jos. SchUtz Brewing Company tour, he is
welcomed by Daniel F. McKeithan, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer (right).
Accompanying Dymshitz were Israeli interpreter Eli Valck (center left) and Bill

our efforts and build an ever-rising public outcry
against this injustice."
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin
emphasized the need for objective research on
resistance movements. Speaking at the
inauguration of the Menachem Begin Institute
for Research into the Resistance Movements at
Bar-Ilan University, he said that the people who
took part need to be remembered. They are
getting fewer, and details are being lost, he
There should, however, be no clouding over of
the difference between freedom movements and
terrorists. The one sought to save a nation and a
country, the other to destroy a nation.
In this context Begin revealed that proof had
come to light through Lord Barnett Janner
substantiating the claim that the Irgun Zvai
Leumi had given half an hour's warning before
the King David Hotel explosion, but the warning
had gone unheeded, in the days preceding the
independence of the State of Israel

Yerushalmi, chairman of the Near Eastern

The Safra professorship was established by
Edmond Safra, an international banker, in honor
of his late father. Bok said the Safra family

The American Jewish Committee is urging the
Senate Banking Committee to approve action
which would prohibit banks from using public
funds to support private social clubs which
discriminate in their membership.
Charging that clubs throughout the country
discriminate against Jews, Blacks and women,
Richard Davimos, chairman of the organization's
Committee on Social Discrimination, points out
that it was common practice for banks and other
corporate enterprises to pay membership dues in
social dubs for their executives. Support of such
discriminatory policies, he declares, helps to
perpetuate discrimination in the hiring and
promotion of minorities in the executive suites of
business enterprises.

"peace," he cannot give up
Israeli rights to live in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza. He will not
allow a potentially dangerous
new State to be established there.
TO MAKE this point (an
important one if the "peace
process" is to continue), Begin
gave a "Go Ahead" bound to
provoke screams from the State
Department. (It is interesting
that Washington didn't wait for
Sadat to complain; Carter is keen
on kowtowing to OPEC, the PLO
and the Rejectionist States." A
small group settling on
uninhabited land gets con-
siderable press play, but have

Answering attacks, Begin said,
"Since forming the government,
we have not misled anybody. At
every opportunity, and par-
ticularly during the 12 days of
the Camp David discussion, we
declared and reiterated that
Jerusalem is the eternal, in-
divisible capital of Israel (and) we
have the full right to settle in all
parts of Eretz Israel. Such a
settlement is also a vital security
needed to prevent the murder of
our children."
Jews constitute only a fraction
of one percent of the population
of Judea and Samaria. Even if
this number were to triple or
quadruple in coming years the
numbers could in no way
threaten Arab dominance. If an
autonomous Arab region in
Judea and Samaria (with an Arab
population of over one million)
cannot tolerate a Jewish presence
of 10 to 20 or (to be highly op-
timistic) say someday 100,000,
then the so-called peace-process
is a waste of time worse, it is a
naive, but they are courageous
and patriotic. Elon Moreh is on
the main route in the proposed
autonomous zone to Israel's
vulnerable nine-mile-mide waist
at the coast. An attack to cut
Israel in half, would come right
down the Nablus road. Elon
Moreh, perched on a rocky
hilltop, could deter that
potentially deadly aggression,
and Israel Chief of Staff Eitan
made this point June 19. It was
not widely reported in the U.S.
While most Israelis support
the government's right to
establish settlements, they also
demand that rights of individuals
be respected. It is safe to say that
the majority were pleased when
on Wednesday, June 20, the
Israeli Supreme Court acting on
the request of 17 Arab' land-
owners from Rujeib village (who
claim title to the land
requisitioned by the govern-
ment), ordered a halt to all
further construction at Elon
Moreh until the court hears their
claims in full.
IN THEIR SUIT, they point
out that requisitioning of
privately-owned land for set-
tlement contradicts Israeli
government policy.
The government now has to
convince a very independent
court that building on this site is
essential to national security.
That may be complicated by

How the Arab Plan Began
Continued from Page 1
Western nations whose support
and supplies have enabled the
Israelis to repulse Arab attacks.
Waves of workers have been
laid off. European countries
which previously balked at
selling arms to the Arabs have
abruptly reversed that policy.
The PLO has been hurriedly
recognized at the United Nations.
Israelis, recalling the horror of
the previous year's Holy Days,
have been forced to attend the
1974 Yom Kippur services with
rifles in their hands. Everywhere,
the price of oil continues to
explode upward. Yet the media of
the Western world do little to
connect these symptoms of the
quiet war.
In the air above the Middle
Eastern deserts, leaders of 19
Arab nations are flying to
Morocco. There they announce
plans to create a new world
monetary system whose primary
currency will be petrodollars.
Henceforth, they say, all oil-and-
monetary negotiations with the
outside world will be inseparably
linked with "other issues."
issues" they list are lower prices
for Western goods and services
they want to buyand "full
Israeli withdrawal from our
The tone of that Arab Summit
in Rabat is one of threat and
bluster. Meeting with the
Western press, Arab leaders
explain that they have already
accumulated billions in profits
from the oil price hikes they have
imposed over the last year. They
say this is only the beginning.
Now they intend to begin long-
term investments of that money
in America and Europe. They will
be taking over a number of major
companies and industries in a
campaign for greatly expanded
Arab influence and recognition as
the new world superpowers.
The Arab leaders react
strongly to the apprehension of
U.S. Senators and Congressmen
about massive foreign takeovers
of American business. In effect,
they threaten to cripple or
collapse the American banking
system if they are trifled with.
They phrase their warnings
baldly: "If Congress passes
legislation to block Arab
takeover bids, we can transfer
billions from U.S. banks into
European institutions."
AT ONE of the final Rabat
sessions in October 1974, King
Faisal, leading spokesman for the
Arab block, makes an inspection
tour of Moroccan troops and their
just-delivered arms. Faisal
finishes the tour and hefts one of
the weapons for the benefits of
foreign press photographers.
Holding the deadly sniper's rifle
to his shoulder and peering
through its telescopic sight, the
now-deceased King swung the
barrel in a westerly direc-
tiontoward distant
Americaas the photographers
snapped away.
Nearby, Faisal's spokesman
pointed out that "We don't want
to ruin America any more than
you want to take military action
against us. There is no reason
why a compromise can't be
worked out"
It is Spring, 1979. The world
has long forgotten the Rabat
Summit at which Arab leaders
vowed to use their new oil money
to buy influence and change the
foreign policy of America and
other Western nations.
Little notice is being paid to
statements coming regularly
from Arab capitals. Threats of
"financial retaliation" against
Egypt as well as the U.S. and

What they find is that the
Arabs' six-year-old invasion of
America's power base has eroded
more deeply than anyone had
previously thought. The Arabs
have fought their quiet war in
board rooms and campuses and
government suites. Exactly how
much control they have gained is
impossible to measure.
