ixchange Letters, Hope to Resume Talks
From JT A Sources
Despite the fact that Egypt's President
Anwar Sadat postponed resumption of
[Palestinian autonomy talks with Israel
vhich were scheduled to start Tuesday,
|Aug. 5, hope popped up that the talks may
> revived soon.
Sadat's action came in response to the
whelming vote by Israel's Knesset
^Parliament) members passing a law
[declaring undivided Jerusalem Israel's
| capital.
The day before the talks were scheduled
I to start (Aug. 5), Prime Minister
I Menachem Begin convened the Cabinet to
I read a letter he received from Sadat
| breaking off the talks.
PRIME MINISTER Menachem Begin,
I replying to Sadat's letter drafted a message
I that reportedly reviews Israel's positions in
I the autonomy talks and details what Israel
I called Egyptian deviations from the Camp
I David framework agreement outlining the
| autonomy scheme.
The content of the 10-page letter was not
I disclosed, but Interior Minister Yosef Burg,
the chief autonomy negotiator, said it "did
not close any doors." A copy was to be sent
I to President Carter, officials said.
An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman
I said Israel would not agree to put
prusalem on the agenda of the Palestinian
autonomy talks as a precondition for
resuming the stalled negotiations.
SADAT DELAYED the talks on
Palestinian self-rule in Israeli-occupied
territory to await Israeli clarifications on
the Jerusalem law passed by the Israeli
Knesset (Parliament) last week by an
ov erw helming -majority. The law made all
Jerusalem capital of the Jewish state.
Sadat was said to be looking for a gesture
from Israel or a signal that Jerusalem is
still negotiable. The law has been in-
terpreted as preempting negotiations on the
city's final status.
Egypt has attempted to have Jerusalem
included in discussions on setting up self-
rule for the 1.2 million Palestinians in the
occupied West Bank of the Jordan River
and Gaza Strip. Israel insists that the entire
city of Jerusalem is the Israeli capital and
not a subject for negotiation.
In Cairo, an Egyptian government
spokesman said Sadat would deliver "a
message to the world" from a retreat at the
foot of Mount Sinai in the Sinai Peninsula
where he is spending the final days of
Ramadan, the Islamic holy month that ends
Aug. 12.
DESPITE THE exchange between Cairo
and Jerusalem, Burg said he expected U.S.
mediator Sol Linowitz to arrive in the
Middle East on some kind of "shuttle
mission" in mid-August.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman
Naftali Lavie, clarifying earlier statements
from his office, said Egypt is entitled to
bring up the subject of Jerusalem in the
talks, but Cairo could not demand that it be
discussed as a precondition for resuming
the talks.
Although the Foreign Ministry
statement did not differ from previous
policy, it was the first time since the
Jerusalem law was passed that the policy
was reiterated. "This is not a new position
or a new statement," Lavie said.
"Legally speaking," he added, "the
Jerusalem bill does not change Jerusalem's
status." Israel maintains that the entire
city, formerly divided between Israel and
Jordan, has been the capital since the
annexation of the Arab sector soon after it
was captured in 1967.
Prime Minister Begin
Anwar Sadat
The committee that Begin pieked to help
draft the reply included three of the
Cabinet's prominent hard-liners. They were
Yitzhak Shamir, the foreign minister; Ariel
Sharon, the agriculture minister; and
Moshe Nissim, a minister without portfolio.
The other members were Yosef Burg, the
interior minister who is also Israel's chief
negotiator on the autonomy issue, and
Yigael Yadin, the deputy prime minister
and a political moderate.
Burg said in an interview yesterday the
letter was drafted "in the spirit of not
closing doors," despite its firmness. Israeli
radio reported that those who formulated
the response were anxious to avoid bringing
about a further polarization between Israel
and Egypt, whose relations already are
strained over disagreement about how
much self rule should be granted the
Palestinians living in the occupied West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
Arafat Wants West Bank
In a bid to encourage greater support for
the Palestinian cause, Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasser Arafat has told
a representative of the European Economic
Community that he was prepared to back a
Palestinian homeland on whatever part of
the occupied West Bank Israel could be
induced to withdraw from.
At the same time, Palestinian sources

Manny Lax Named Woodlands UJA Chairman
fftmny Lax
Manny Lax of Banyan Lane,
Tamarac has been appointed
chairman of the 1981 Woodlands
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
The appointment was an-
nounced by Victor Gruman. 1981
UJA general chairman, who said:
"I am delighted that an ex-
perienced and dedicated cam-
paigner, who has consistently
been of great service to the
Jewish people, will chair the
Woodlands campaign where the
total commitment has been
outstanding each year." Milton
Keiner, Federation President,
joined in that assessment.
Under Manny Lax's volunteer
leadership, a committee, com-
posed of outstanding Woodlands
residents who have had many
years of experience in fund-
raising activities for the Jewish
people, will develop a program
aimed at enlarging the number of
contributors and upgrading the

Manny Lax is succeeding
Sidney Spewak as chairman of
the Woodlands UJA. Spewak
expressed his pleasure, joining
Victor Gruman and Keiner
in (commendation, that Lax is
succeeding him. With their
"togetherness," they proved
UJA's theme, not only are they
they one, but they say, "We
MUST be one."
CRC Issues Action Alert Concerning Tanks for Jordan
Chairman Edmund Entin of the Community
Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, acting on behalf of the Committee,
has issued a news urjdate, prepared by Committee
Mfmber Jonathan Salit, based on information from
'the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) with which CRC is affiliated.
The update notes that formal notification of the
White House Administration's intention-to sell 100
M60-3 A tanks to Jordan was delivered to Congress on
Monday, Jury 21. Despite the fact that the best
judgment from "the Hill" in Washington indicates
that Congress may approve the sale, NJCRAC urges
community leaders to write to Senators and
Representatives opposing the sale which is expected to
be followed by the sale or request for an ad-
ditional 100 of the ultra-sophisticated monsters of war.
The update also called attention to the deliberations
at the Copenhagen Women's Conference on the United
Nations Five-Year World Plan of Action. One of the
resolutions adopted will channel UN funds for
"Palestinian women's rights" with the approval of the
Palestinian Liberation Organization again a form of
legitimatizing the PLO as a "nation."
The reports, the update indicates, were more
frrrendour than even.NJCRAC anticipated. The PLO
appeared t > be in command with Leila Khaled as one
of its leadi rs. The Forum, comprising delegates from
non-govem nental organizations (NGO) accredited to
the UN, w is even worse. The delegations from the
United States, Israel and Canada felt an enormous
sense of isolation.
Also reported was the fact that at the "Emergency
Session" of the UN General Assembly, labeled a
"phony event" by Israel's UN Ambassador Yehuda
Blum, the PLO-backed resolution ordering Israel to
begin turning over by Nov. 15 territories conquered
during the several wars of survival of the state, was
passed overwhelmingly. Only nine negative votes were
cast, with the U.S. joining Isi m, mm. seven other
nations. The European Common Market nations were
among 24 nations that abstained.
CRC's report declares that the U.S. is to be com-
mended for casting a negative vote in contrast to all of
the other nations which once again caved in to Arab
oil blackmail.
What is important, the report noted, is not this
continuing manifestation of anti-Israel animus
through the Camp David framework, but, like all the
others, this resolution was intended to sabotage this

said, Arafat denied accusations that the
PLO was committed to a new hardline
policy to total liquidation of the Jewish
state, insisting that the PLO still stands by
previous commitments supporting a
political settlement for the Middle East
Arafat's statements were made in a
closed three-hour meeting Aug. 4 with
Aston Thorn, the foreign minister of
Luxembourg, who was here on the third leg
of an official fact-finding mission for the
EEC in his capacity as chairman of the
EEC's council of ministers.
THORN'S MISSION was mandated at
the EEC summit in Venice in June, which,
to the chagrin of U.S. and Israeli officials,
issued a declaration endorsing the
"association" of the PLO with negotiations
for an end to the Middle East conflict.
Thorn was charged with visiting the Middle
East in preparation for the formulation of
an independent European peace initiative.
Shortly after the Venice declaration in
June, European leaders were given pause
by reports that Arafat's Fatah movement,
which makes up the bulk of the PLO, has
adopted a tough new "no-concessions"
policy in a stormy 11-day congress in
Damascus at which Arafat's diplomatic
efforts came under heavy criticism.
SOURCES WHO attended Thorn's
meeting with Arafat at the PLO's heavily
protected headquarters in West Beirut said
that the PLO chieftain, as he had in a
carefully timed interview previously, in-
sisted that the deor had not been shut on
.future political negotiations.
Arafat, the sources said, advanced the
idea of a Palestinian state on whatever
parts of the West Bank the Israelis would
withdraw from as proof that the PLO was
not locked into a hard-line insistence on the
total liquidation of Israel. He reiterated,
however, that the PLO still sought a
democratic secular state where Moslems,
Christian and Jews could live together.
JWV Commander Urges HostageRelease
National Commander Harris
B. Stone, on behalf of the Jewish
War Veterans of the U.S.A., has
expressed outrage over the
holding of more than 40
Americana in Cuban jails. In a
statement, Commander Stone
said, "At a time when our at-
tention is focused on Cuban
refugees coming to our shores in
search of freedom, we must not
forget the Americans who are
being held in Cuba, many
without benefit of trial and
suffering from violations of basic
human rights."
A case in point is the plight of
Massacusetts toy manufacturer
Jon Gaynor, the 32-year-old son
of a member of the Jewish War
Veternaa Post 106 in South
Carolina. Jon and Dale Stanhope
have been prisoners in a Cuban
jail since Dec. 5, 1979, charged
with illegal entry into Cuban
Gaynor and Stanhope were
arrested in Cuban waters after
their sailboat was thrown off
course in a four-day storm. They
were charged with illegal
penetration of Cuban waters even
though Gaynor repeatedly sent
out distress signals on VHF
Gaynor has not been allowed to
see a lawyer, nor does he know
when he will be tried. He and two
other American prisoners are
being held in a small cell with a
hole in floor serving as a toilet.
The men are not allowed to work,
nor are they permitted any
recreation or outdoor exercise.
Jon, and 20 other prisoners,
recently staged a protest against

their captors. They were

AJCongress Assails UN
NEW YORK The American
Jewish Congress assailed the
"empty resolution" adopted at
the United Nations calling for a
Palestinian state, criticized UN
Secretary-General Kurt Wald-
heim for "heavy-handed, partisan
intervention" and said Secretary
of State Edmund Muskie's com-
ments were "regrettable."
Phil Baum, associate executive
director of the Congress, declared
in a statement:
"The propaganda storm ac-
companying the just-concluded
'emergency session' of the
General Assembly has ap-
parently operated to unsettle and
unnerve even such normally
sober figures as UN Secretary-
General Waldheim and Secretary
of State Muskie. The absurd
debate at the General Assembly,
with its mechanical and mindless
result, merely confirms what
everyone already knows that
the United Nations, at least when
it comes to Middle East matters,
is a pathetic institution which
most often acts to retard rather
than advance processes of peace.
So much for the empty resolution
adopted yesterday.
"We are disappointed in Sec-
retary Muskie's comments,
especially in light of his record as
a member of the United States
Senate. It is regrettable that he
reportedly advised the Cabinet
that passage of a bill in Israel's
Knesset confirming Jerusalem as
Israel'8 capital might imperil the
peace talks.
"Surely he knows that the real
problem agitating the Middle
East is not Israel's course of
conduct but Arab refusal to
accept Israel's right to statehood.
This and only this is what im-
perils the peace."
Prominent Iranian Jew Executed
Avraham Boruchim, a member of
a prominent Iranian Jewish
family which owns two of
Teheran's luxury hotels, was
executed by an Iranian firing
squad in Evin July 31 on charges
of "spying for Israel."
^ The 27-year-old hotelier went
on trial last May before an

Teheran on charges of embezzling
public funds to build a hotel
chain and of "creating an

It has been learned that for the
past six months efforts had been
made through international
channels to save Avraham. To
Israelis who warned the family to
leave while it was still possible,
shortly after Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini arrived in Teheran to
lead the Islamic revolution,
Avraham replied: "We have
worked hard to make this
property flourish. It is difficult to
leave it and go away. They will
not touch us." He also reportedly
said at the time that "for 3000
years the Jewish nation has
known hardship and persecution
and we will overcome these
hardships as well."
Other prominent Iranian Jews
have also been executed or put on
trial since the Islamic revolution.
IN MAY, 1979, Habib
Elghanian, a businessman and
communal leader, was executed
on a variety of charges, including
having Zionist connections.

known as the Helsinki Accords.

Concurrent Resolution 391 notes
that Aug. 1 marks the fifth
anniversary of the signing of this
important document.
The Resolution, which we
passed in the House of Represen-
tatives, addresses the need for
compliance with the human
rights provisions of the agree-
ment. It is an unfortunate fact
that several of the signatory
nations, notably the Soviet
Union, and some of the Eastern
European countries, continue to
violate the bask human rights of
their citizens in contradiction to
their obligations under the
Helsinki Accords. The Soviet
record on human rights is par-
ticularly reprehensible, with over
280 human rights activists im-
prisoned or exiled since 1978.
Families expect more
More service.
Riverside now has seven chapels to serve the
Jewish communities of Dade, Broward and Palm Beach
counties. But, more convenience is only one of the reasons
why since 1935, Riverside has been the standard by which
people compare funeral service.
At Riverside, families are served by the largest
Jewish staff of any funeral director in Florida. They are
people with a genuine understanding of families' needs,
regardless of financial circumstances.
At Riverside, families find total dedication
to Jewish tradition. And economical help in arranging
service between Florida and New York, or anywhere else
in the world.
Families expect more from Riverside.
We're trying to live up to that trust.

Sadat Talking on the Mount
From JTA Sources
President Anwar Sadat, disturbed by the
Jerusalem crisis and the deadlocked Palestinian
autonomy talks, will make a new appeal for peace in
the Middle East and the world from Mount Sinai,
the hallowed spot where God revealed himself to
Moses, officials said.
Sadat, in keeping with Islamic tradition, is
retiring to the desert region, revered by Moslems,
Christians and Jews, to spend the last week of the
Moslem holy month of Ramadan in contemplation
i*\d prayer.
In an indication that the President is planning a
I major announcement, the government is flying
I reporters and cameramen to the desert site.
Officials said Sadat's statement will be an
"appeal for peace," his second in 10 months. The
other came last November when he first visited
Mount Sinai and enjoined the peoples of the world
to "renounce bloodshed, violence and hatred."
Sadat is awaiting Israel's response to his letter
about the future of the autonomy talks following
passage of a new law making united Jerusalem
Israel's capital. Sadat will spend about five days in
the area, returning to Suez City Monday for
prayers on the big feast that marks the end of
Ramadan on Tuesday, Aug. 12.
He will stay in a small prefabricated building, to
which a mosque is attached, in the "Valley of
Rest," reputed to be the site where the Jews waited
for 40 days while Moses climbed Mount Sinai to
receive the Ten Commandments from God.
The region, which includes the famed 6th Cen-
tury St. Catherine's Monastery, was handed back
to Egypt last November after nearly 12 years of
Israeli occupation.
In November, when Sadat visited Mount Sinai on
the second anniversary of his trip to Jerusalem, he
announced plans to build a religious compound at
the site, including a church, a mosque and a
synagogue, to symbolize the unity of the three
religions and mankind's quest for peace and love.

Refugee Law
Fort Lauderdale Congressman Ed Stack, (left), meets with
Gov. Bob Graham, (right), and long-time House Education
and Labor Committee Chairman Carl Perkins, to discuss relief
for South Florida schools impacted by the influx of Cubans
and Haitian refugee children. Stack has sponsored legislation
to reimburse local school districts for the added costs of
educating these children.
I Pillorying
S *
Mass. (JTA) Rabbi
Alexander Schindler, president of
the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, declared here
that "one can oppose in-
termarriage and seek to mitigate
its spread without pillorying the
intermarried. Jewish life has no
need of witch-hunts."
The leader of Reform Judaism
spoke in reply to the demand
made by Rabbi Sol Roth, on his
installation as president of the
Rabbinical Council of America
(RCA) last month, that Jews who
married outisde their faith and
rabbis who performed such
marriages be denied "all
leadership roles in Jewish life."
SCHINDLER. who was here
for th dedication of the Kivie
Kaplan Center, named for the
late Reform Jewish leader, called
Roth's proposal "an inquisition
that has no place in an open, free
and pluralistic Jewish com-
If carried out, he said, the
Orthodox RCA would "exercise
its veto powers against the
selection of such individuals in
' organizations like the Synagogue
Council, Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
.Organizations, Chaplains
Commission of the Jewish
Welfare Hoard, the Joint
Advisorv Committee and so on."
The House Subcommittee
quickly approved legislation,
sponsored by Congressman
Edward J. Stack (D., Fort
Lauderdale), which would require
the Federal Government to re-
imburse school districts for the
costs of educating Cuban and
Haitian refugee children.
Carl D. Perkins, chairman of
the House Education and Labor
Committee, is preparing to
submit the Stack bill for im-
mediate consideration by the full

Speaking to members of the
Subcommittee on Elementary,
Secondary and Vocational Edu-
cation, which adopted the bill,
Stack said, "It is totally unfair to
the taxpayers of South Florida
and other affected areas, to ask
them to pick up the bill for
educating thousands of non-Eng-
lish speaking students who will
enroll in Florida schools, and
several other school districts
throughout the nation, as a result
of the national Administration's
immigration policy. As Florida's
only member of Congress on the

Women's Rights Mystique
At least part of the mystique of the women's
movement involves the notion that women are more
level-headed than men. that they would not fall
such easy prey to angry denunciations of one
another in political confrontation and that, there-
fore, in the end there would be less likelihood of
future wars were women finally to assume their
rightful fifty-fifty role as leaders on the national and
world scene.
Also included in the mystique is the notion that
women, because they are the biological bearers of
future generations, would be less inclined to commit
them to battle than men are, whose role in the
reproductive process is distant, detached, often
indifferent if not outright hostile to their heirs once
they appear on the scene.
This latter is a strange argument to make in
the cause of women's equality because it emphasizes
what would seem to be the inherently emotional
nature of women as opposed to men and places into
question the supposition that women are in fact
more level-headed than men in their petty squab-
bles. These two qualities don't seem to square.
For ourselves, we would prefer to see the
seeming contradiction here as a paradox and to
believe that women are in fact less petty, more
reasonable, and therefore less warlike. We say
would prefer because the just-concluded United
Nations Decade for Women conference in
Copenhagen shows no such thing.
Replay at Copenhagen
Despite their best efforts, the conference in
Copenhagen was once again swamped by the crude
politics of the Communist and Third World-
dominated delegations. Rather than to examine the
prospects for women during the years ahead to
achieve true equality, especially in areas of the
world where today women are absolute slaves, the
conference became fixated upon "Palestinian"
women and their "slavery" at the hands of the
"occupying" Zionists.
In essence, at Copenhagen, precisely as at
Mexico City in 1975, the women delegates acted
just like men. They fought over self-perpetuating
myths just like men do. They defeated their own
best interests.
It is a bitter observation we make, but in their
behavior at Copenhagen, the women demonstrated
that, being like men, they should in fact have sexual
equality. They are no more level-headed than men,
no less petty. Why not be equal in man's cupidity?
Autonomy Jabberwocky
A basic trouble is that full autonomy "has
never been defined." These are the words of no less
an authority than Sol Linowitz, the chief United
States negotiator in the talks.
Prime Minister Begin and most Israelis believe
that autonomy as proposed by Sadat would be a
Palestinian state in all but name. Egypt asserts
that Begin's concept of autonomy is only a means
for maintaining Israeli sovereignty over the
And then there is Opposition Labor leader
Shimon Peres, who has declared, "Autonomy is less
than independence and more than the present
situation. But where exactly is the middle?" These
were his words after his meeting earlier in April
with President Carter at the White House. Not only
does he not tell us anything, he asks us questions
into the bargain. In all this confusion among the
principals themselves, we are reminded of the
jabberwocky of Lewis Carroll. Someone had better
come up with some translations here. Quick.

Tanks for Nothing
The Carter administration,
despite overwhelming evidence to
the contrary, still believes that
King Hussein of Jordan is an
Arab moderate seeking peace.
Accordingly, it has proposed the
sale of 100 sophisticated M60-A3
tanks to the Hashemite
Kingdom. The administration
and the monarch reportedly
have agreed that some time after
the sale is approved, the White
House will recommend to
Congress the sale of an additional
100 M60-A3s. The House Foreign
Affairs Commitee began hearings
on the proposed sale which, if not
disapproved, would supplement
the already substantial military
assistance Jordan receives from
the United States.
Hussein's reputation for
moderation stemmed from the
mistaken assumption that he,
unlike many other Arab leaders,
was willing to make peace with
Israel. But since 1978 he has
declined numerous opportunities
to become involved in the Arab-
Israeli peace process. He has
denounced the Camp David
accords, the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty, and the
negotiations on Palestinian
autonomy. He has also willingly
joined the Arab boycott of Egypt
and broken diplomatic relations
with President Sadat's govern-
ment. Nor have there been
opportunities for Jordan to make
peace only since 1978. Practically
from the day Jordan attacked
Israel in 1967, leading to the
Israeli occupation of the West
Bank, Israeli governments have
made repeated offers to negotiate
a compromise.
Volunw JOTJV. No. 29
Last month, after two years of
cool relations with Washington
because of his staunch opposition
to peace. Hussein was invited to
the White House. Having
received his invitation without
moderating his stance, he felt free
to advertise his intransigence.
His rhetoric about suppososed
Zionist crimes was more shrill
than it had been in a long time.
He went home with the promise
of U.S. tanks.
Earlier this month, at the
opening of the Islamic foreign
ministers' conference in Amman,
Hussein hyperbolically charged
Israel with "obliterating Islamic
civilization," not to mention
"murder, expulsion, subservience
and enslavement." And on the
prospect of regaining control of
Jerusalem, the king said, "As we
were in our history, we will
continue to be the custodians of
the Islamic, Christian and Jewish
holy places without dis-
crimination." In fact, Jordan's
"custodianship" of Jerusalem's
holy places was despicable. It
destroyed most of the
synagouges in the Old City's
Jewish quarter, used Jewish
gravestones to build roads and
latrines, and denied access not
only to all Jews, but also to
Israeli Moslems and Christians.
Hussein's speech was but the
latest evidence that he is moving
farther from peace rather than
toward it. That's not the kind of
movement that should be
rewarded with sophisticated
American arms.
The Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlevi, the
deposed shah of Iran who died in
Cairo this week, left Teheran 18
months ago, but Iran is certainly
not better off becaus of his
demise. The shah, of course, was
far from perfect. Like the
ayatollah, he was sometimes
brutally intolerant of dissent. A
case can be made however, that it
was his growing tolerance that
led to the shah's downfall. And
the shah was always infinitely
more tolerant than Khomeini of
diversity. The Baha'is,
Christians, Jews and other
religious minorities that
flourished under the shah now
fear for their lives. The women
who voted for the first time under
the shah are now threatened with
the veil.
Given the hostage crisis,
perhaps the White House was
right not to express regret over
the death of a longtime U.S. ally.

Adding up the Numbers
In recent weeks, newspapers
have been reporting on two
different letters, one to Prime
Minister Begin of Israel, the
other to President Carter. The
, letter to Begin was signed by 56
prominent American Jews; it
criticized "extremists" within the
Israeli government and called for
""territorial compromise. The letter
to Carter, signed by 68 senators,
reminded the president of his
commitment not to sell offensive
weaponry for Saudi Arabia's F-15
fighter-bombers and urged denial
of a Saudi request for such
.. In reaction to the letter to
Begin, columnist Nick Thim-
mesch published his own epistle
to Palestinian Arabs. Noting the
"diversity of opinion and a
readiness to dissent" within the
Jewish community, Thimmisch
wished "there would be 56 ardent
Palestinian nationalists who
would also declare a goal of living
in peace with Israel and calling
for an end to terrorism."

columnist wrote.
The letter of 56 also set off a
debate within the American
Jewish community on the actual
meaning of the letter, with some
of the co-signers dissociating
themselves from it, and on the
tactic of criticizing the Israeli
government through open letters.
In a letter to The New York
Times last week, Rabbi Joseph
Glaser, Rabbi Seymour Seigel
and Robert Goldmann addressed
these issues.
"(Is) the proper role of
American Jews ... to involve
themselves with Israel's policy-
making process, or to play their
part as Americans and as Jews in

process?" the writers asked. "We
think it is the latter.

Saudi Arms Sale
Editorials continue to run
against the new Saudi Arms

against the sale. Because of

Greater Tolerance for Intermarried

Orthodox Jewish leaders' call for the elimination
from leadership roles in Jewish life of all persons
who married out of their faith has been assailed
by the head of American Reform Judaism as
"an inquisition that has no place in an open, free
and pluralistic Jewish community."
Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, president of
the Union of American Hebrew Congregations
(UAHC), declared:
"One can oppose intermarriage and seek to
mitigate its spread without pillorying the in-
termarried. Jewish life has no need of witch-
HE SPOKE at the dedication of the Kivie
Kaplan Center, named for the late Reform
Jewish leader who also served as board chairman
of the National Association for the Advancement
of Colored People. The building will serve as a
conference center for the UAHC's Eisner Camp
Institute here.
Rabbi Schindler cited remarks by Rabbi Sol
Roth*of Atlantic Beach, N.Y., on being installed
last month as president of the Rabbinical
Council of America (RCA), an Orthodox body.
In that address, Rabbi Roth said the in-
creasing rate of itnermarriage between Jews and
non-Jews had brought about an "impending
calamity." He recommended that Jews who
married outside their faith and rabbis who
performed such marriages be denied "all
leadership roles in Jewish life."
THE RCA, he said, would "exercise its veto
powers against the selection of such individuals
in organizations like the Synagogue Council,
Conference of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, Chaplains Commission of
the Jewish Welfare Board, the Joint Advisory
Committee and so on."
In criticizing Rabbi Roth's statement, Rabbi
Schindler declared:
"It is a truism that intermarriage is a serious
threat to Jewish survival; the Reform movement
is no less concerned with it than the Orthodox
body which Rabbi Roth heads. That is why
Reform Judasim has undertaken an extensive
'outreach' program aimed at bringing into the
Jewish fold the non-Jewish partners of muted
marriages. But intermarriage cannot be totally
eliminated in an open society and cannot be
dealt with by bombast or coercion.
"IF THE PURPOSE is to establish high
standards of Jewish leadership, intermarriage is
neither the only nor the worst offense the flesh is
heir to. What about Jews who are unfaithful to
their spouses or who fail to observe the mitzvah
of charity or who operate corrupt nursing
homes? All of these involve Jewish values at
least as significant as the importance of
marrying within the Jewish family.
"And what of those Jews who, while married
to non-Jews, have chosen faithfully to faise their
children as Jews? Shall they, too, be read out of
Jewish life?
"Rabbi Roth's targets presumably do not
include those Jews whose spouses have con-
verted to Judaism. Does that mean that the
president of the Orthodox Rabbinical Council of
America is prepared to accept conversions
performed by Conservative and Reform rabbis?
Or, more likely, will he insist as his Orthodox
colleagues in Israel insist that only con-
versions performed according to Halachah (that
is, by Orthodox rabbis) are acceptable?
"IF SO, Rabbi Roth can take satisfaction in
having introduced the question of 'Who is a
Jew?" a controversy that has torn Israel apart
into the U.S. Jewish community. I can
hardly think of a more pernicious or dangerous
development in American Jewish life.
"One can oppose intermarriage and seek to
mitigate its spread without pillorying the in-
termarried. Rabbi Roth's plans amount to an
inquisition that has no place in an open, free and
pluralistic Jewish community. Jewish life has no
need of witch-hunts."
Damage Suit Finds for Orthodox Jew
award of $40,000 in back pay and
damages, called the largest ever
granted by a court in a case ef job
discrimination against a Sabbath
, observer, was reported by
Howard Zuckerman, president of
the National Jewish Commission
on Law and Public Affairs
Zuckerman said the award by a
federal court in Chicago came
after four years of litigation by
Herbert Minkus, who was
represented by Marvin Rosen-
blum, a Chicago member of
COLPA. The case began when
Minkus could not take a
November, 1974 civil service
examination for a maintenance
laborer's job in the Metropolitan
Sanitary District of Greater
Chicago because it was scheduled
for a Saturday.
WHEN THE Sanitary District
refused to make accommodations
-Jfor Minkus to take the
examination at another time, he
filed suit in Federal District
Court in Chicago, charging that
the refusal to accommodate his
religious requirements violated
Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights
Act. Federal District Court
Judge Frank McGarr dismissed
the complaint in 1977.
The Seventh Circuit Court of
Appeals on dune 6, 1979,
unanimously reversed the
complaint dismissal and sent the
case back to McGarr, who, after a
re-hearing, found the Sanitary
District guilty of job bias and
ordered the record back pay and
damages award.
Zuckerman said McGarr's
ruling also provided another
precedent. Zuckerman explained
that in Sabbath observer
problems generally, the in-
dividual is hired for a job and
then dismissed for refusing to
work on his or her Sabbath.
BUT MINKUS could not
rovide an evaluation of his
bility to perform the job he
sought or show that a job offer
would have been made, had bias
not prevented such an offer,
because he could not take the
examination required for the job.
McGarr, on a rehearing, ruled
that, based on the evidence, there
was some chance that Minkus
would have passed the
examination, would have been
hired and would have started
work* as a maintenance laborer in
September. 1975. The job Minkus
sought paid about $18,000 a year,
with some $3,000 annually in
fringe benefits, for a total since

She Becomes a Bat Mitfcvah at 65
Mrs. Jacob (Bert) Lutz, a
founder of the Women's Division
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale and one
of its past presidents (1973-74)w
celebrated her 65th birthday in
May by becoming a Bat Mitzvah.
Active in the Division's UJA
campaigns, and a member of the
Division's prestigious LION
division though she moved to 657
Lakewood Circle East, Delray
last year, Bert Lutz was honored
at Shabbat services of Temple
Sinai (formerly the Reform
Hebrew Congregation of Delray)
with relatives, friends, and
members of the congregation
crowding the sanctuary of St.
Paul's Episcopal Church where
the two-year-old congregation
has been meeting temporarily.
During the Oneg Shabbat that
followed, the guests were treated
to Bert's own baked goodies:
mandelbrot, poppyseed cake,
pumpkin cake, date nut cake,
fudge squares.
Nancy Miller, women's editor
of Delray's News Journal, wrote
of the Bat Mitzvah service that
Mrs. Lutz gave herself as an
"extra special 66th birthday
present" and included the
following in her report of an
interview with the celebrant:
She has waited 52 years to do
it, but as she read portions of
scripture in Hebrew and said the
traditional blessings, the
meaning of the service was no
less significant.
At age 13, the Bat Mitzvah
(Bar Mitzvah for boys) signifies a
cross-roads the end of one
phase (childhood) and the
beginning of another. It marks an
individual's dedication to
learning, good deeds, living by
the Ten Commandments and
Golden Rule and setting an
example for others.
For Mrs. Lutz, her Bat Mit-
zvah is "sort of a beginning," as
this has been her lifestyle.
Although she terms herself "of
retirement age," she doesn't
believe in it, preferring to keep as
active as possible, increasing her
knowledge and assisting her
"People my age have a lifetime
of experience and I think it's
their duty to give their com-
munities and any good cause the
benefit of that experience," she
maintains. "To sit back and
spend every minute in the pursuit
of personal pleasure is a waste of
human resources. I feel a person
should continue to leam as long
as he can breathe."
Mrs. Lutz intends to practice
what she preaches. She shared
what her Bat Mitzvah meant to
her and vowed "to see to the
physical and 9priritual needs of
my people in proportion to my
strength and my means and my
limited talent."
"I promised my family a
surprise and my Bat Mitzvah is
it," Mrs. Lutz said.
Twenty-six guests arriving
from out-of-state came because
she told them: "I can't be 65
without you." Her birthday
"party" was beyond anyone's
Reading Hebrew was not
difficult for Mrs. Lutz, who
learned the language as a child
while attending a Hebrew
Academy for hoys ages 7-13 in
her hometown of Memphis, Tenn.
She was the only female student,
which she said seemed strange at
the time. She was quick to add,
however, that later she was
grateful for her academy
Of her father's decision to send
her to the academy with her two
brothers, she said: "He wanted
his children to learn everything
there was to leam, especially
about themselves. He felt
Judaism, being the basis of all
religions, was a starting place.
"He believed if you understood
the basic moral and ethical
principles of Judaism, you have
an understanding of every
religion because every religion is
based on the same moral and
ethical principles espoused by the
prophets of Israel."
When Mrs. Lutz was 13, girls
did not become Bat Mitzvah and
still didn't when her daughter
reached that age. Times changed
and in the mid-1970's, she saw a
group of American-Jewish
women performing their Bat
Mitzvah at Masada in Jerusalem.
This prompted her to plan her
She explained that Masada is a
flat-topped mountain where a
band of Jews took refuge when
Jerusalem was under siege by the
Romans in 73 A.D. Refusing to
be conquered, they opted for a
suicide pact, causing Masada to
be an important symbol in
Although she thought about
her Bat Mitzvah, Mrs. Lutz said
it was the encouragement and
enthusiasm of Rabbi and Mrs.
Samuel Silver that inspired her to
do it. She met the couple when
she and her husband moved to
Delray from Fort Lauderdale in
1979 and joined the Reform
Hebrew Congregation.
Mrs. Lutz's varied background
is depicted in a framed, black and
white cryptograph she received
as a birthday gift two days before
her Bat Mitzvah. Inscribed in
tiny figures and letters are her
name (Bertha) and the names of
her two children, her husband's
four children and the couple's 13

There also is a picture of a cow
being milked, which was one of
her daily childhood chores.
"My father believed in the
dignity of labor, believing no
labor was too lowly for anyone,"
she explained. "We were a family
of five and he bought three cows.
Each of us children had the
responsibility for milking a cow
morning and evening and I
wasn't allowed to stop until I was
in college.
"It was a relief to stop but now

Describing herself as "not a
pool sitter," the gracious, soft-
spoken woman plans to assist the
Delray Community Chest, the
Palm Beach County Chapter of
the Cancer Society and ther
local organizations. Accustomed
to leadership roles, she said she's
"very much at home" with
persons who share her interests.
With her values firmly en-
trenched in Judaism, she lauded
her faith's "principles of
humanism, justice, mercy and
peace as conceived by the
prophets of Israel which arc
indestructible and everlasting.''
She noted that her Bat
Mitzvah was "reaffirmation
and a time of realization that all
we hold most dear good
health, financial security, family
ties, friendship can all
disappear overnight or be severed
by forces beyond our control."
"All of God's commandment s
deal not with our responsibility
to Him but with our respon
sibility to our fellow man," she
stressed. "Bat Mitzvah is a
pledge to participate in any
movement which leads to bet-
terment of the social order to
which we belong."
Q: Who picked up the telephone
before Alexander Graham Bell did?
A: Johann Philipp Reis.
Reis is listed in THE BOOK OF FIRSTS as
number one to publicly demonstrate the
telephone. He did this in front of a group of
scientists in 1861fifteen years before Bell got
a patent. Because of illness and a lack of funds.
Reis was unable to capitalize on his invention.
Bell knew of his work as did Edison who even
toyed with Reis' ideas On March 22. 1876.
twelve days after Bell's first intelligible speech
transmission, the NEW YORK TIMES ran an
editorial entitled 'The Telephone'. The editorial
was all about Philipp Reis. Not one word about
Bell Even the U.S. Government brought suit
against Bell for: "claiming the invention of
something already widely known to exist in the
form of the Reis telephone' and also with
somehow concealing the latter from the Patent
Office's expert examiner in that field'.' Bell, of
course, survived the lawsuits and the challenges
but physicists built a monument to Reis as the
inventor of the telephone. (Better he should
have won the lawsuits.)

Congress Initiates Law For Holocaust Council
A letter signed by eight Senators
and 10 Representatives is being
circulated in both Houses of
Congress, urging their colleagues
to join in co-sponsoring legis-
lation to establish on a per-
manent basis "the U.S. Holo-
caust Memorial Council which
will have the responsibility to
plan and carry out the recom-
mendations of the President's
Commission on the Holocaust."
The letter notes that the
Commission was established on
Nov. 1, 1978, by President Carter
"to recommend a fitting
memorial to all those who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust as
well as other victims of per-

to the President that "a per-
manent living memorial/
museum to the victims
of the Holocaust be established."
the letter says.
"In addition, the Commission
recommended that one week each
year would be designated as
'Days of Remembrance' to be
marked by a national, civic com-
memoration and appropriate pri-
vate and public observances."
The museum will be in
ASSERTING that the costs to
the government of the Council
and memorial should be
"minimal," the letter says the
operating costs of the Council
will be below $750,000.
"The cost of the memorial
itself should be financed
primarily through direct private
contributions," the letter says.
"There may be some need for
public funds in the form of seed
money at some future point, but
we expect this also to be minimal.
We are persuaded that all
Americans, regardless of faith or
national origin, will wish to be
involved in the creation of this

Michel (R, 111.). Additional
Senators are Alan Cranston (D.,
Calif), Howard Baker (R.. Tenn.)
and Ted Stevens (R., Alaska).
At the offices of Lehman and
Danforth, which are coordinating
the effort, the JTA was informed
that the legislation will probably
be introduced in both branches of
Congress about Aug. 18 when
they reconvene following the
Democratic Convention in New
York. The letter has drawn more
than 75 co-sponsors in the House
and 22 in the Senate since it
began circulating last week.
The draft legislation attached
to the letter calls for the Council
to consist of 60 members ap-
pointed by the President and that
those other than the 10 members
of Congress shall serve five-year
terms. The terms of the Congress
members shall be coterminus

Beau Rivage Hotel in Bal Harbour,
Miami Beach Call for reser-
"hit team" of Arab terrorists was
planning to bomb several Jewish
establishments in Brussels and
Antwerp and attack Brussels
International Airport passengers
arriving from Israel.
The Belgian police, which
arrested a second Arab terrorist
in Brussels found in a locker at
Brussels' main railway station
Gare du Nord a briefcase which,
it is believed, contained detailed
descriptions of possible targets,
methods of access and possible
escape routes.
BELGIAN police arrested a
man in Antwerp minutes after he
tossed two hand grenades at a
group of Jewish teenagers and
adults waiting to board a bus for
summer camp.
David Kohane, 15, was killed
and 20 other persons were
wounded, one of whom, 13-year-
old Joshua Erblich, remains in
critical condition.
The terrorist gave his name as
Abdel Wahid, born in Damascus.
He said he arrived in Antwerp
from Rome Sunday with a forged
Moroccan passport made out in
the name of Zayed Nasser.
The Belgian police's "Special
Branch" has been mobilized, with
all leaves cancelled, to try and pin
down all possible suspects. The
Belgian government has given
top priority to the identification
and arrest of all the culprits.
BELGIAN Prime Minister
Wilfried Martens visited the
wounded in their Antwerp
hospitals, and the King, himself
hospitalized with a mild heart
attack, personally cabled the
families of the victims and the
Antwerp Jewish community to
express his sympathy.
The Belgians have asked for
the aid of West German
authorities to try to identify a
young German woman, known
under the code name of Lyna
Nablusy, who, according to
Nasser, gave him the grenades
and the heavy caliber automatic
pistol with 18 bullets found on
him at the time of his arrest.
Belgian police have also asked
for the assistance of the Israeli
authorities, the French and the
Italian police. The Belgians
believe that the center of the
network is in Rome where the
terrorists, a small fanatic gang
apparently unconnected with the
mainstream of Palestinian
organizations, might have been
in close contact with Italian
extreme leftwing terrorist
The second arrested terrorist,
who carried a Tunisian passport
with the same name as the one
arrested in Antwerp, Zayed Nas-
ser, had in his possession
Russian-made grenades, similar
to those used in the deadly
Antwerp attack.
THE MAN was arrested in a
small hotel in Brussels' Saint
Gilles area, close to the main
railway station, where most of
the terrorist activities seemed to
have been concentrated. Belgian
State Prosecutor Renaat
Verheyden said in Brussels that
the second man had also told the
police that he had acted on behalf
of an organization called "The
Revolutionary Fatah" and had
received his orders by mail from
an address in Saudi Arabia.
Nasser told police he also acted
on behalf of the same
The prosecutor refused to say
whether the second man, the
Tunisian, had been in contact
with the mysterious German
woman. Police sources unof-
ficially say that the two men had
met the woman whom they knew
under her code name.
The Antwerp killer told police
investigators he had first met the
woman in Lebanon where she
attended terrorist classes in a
Palestinian training camp. In his
orders to attack Belgian Jewish
institutions he was told that he
would meet her at a certain date
and hour in a Brussels central
square, Porte de Namur. He
received his orders in Rome, also
by mail, and also from a Saudi
Arabian address.
The orders told him that
should he have forgotten what
she looked like he would
recognize her by a gold medallion
which she would be wearing
around her neck. He was also
given the passwords. He was to
say "Palestine," and the woman
would reply "victory." After
meeting her, they went to his
hotel room where she gave him
the two grenades and the loaded
pistol and 18 bullets.
NASSER described the woman
as about 23 years old, tall, slim
and with shoulder-long dark
brown hair, dressed in jeans and
a tee shirt. He said that since
their meeting at the Porte de
Namur and the hotel where she
gave him the weapons, they had
not met again.
According to police sources,
the killer, who has remained
throughout the interrogation
calm and even relaxed, is fully
cooperating with the police,
apparently not realizing the
gravity of his crime. When first
arrested Sunday afternoon he
reportedly told the two policeman
who arrested him: "Why do you
detain me? I did nothing to
Belgians. I only hit Jews."

"exploratory mission" to the
Middle East headed by Gaston
Thorn, Luxembourg's Foreign
Minister and the current chair-
man of the EEC, would be "most
constructive if it builds on the

He said it was "regrettable"
that the nine European Eco-
nomic Community (EEC)
member states saw fit to abstain
rather than vote against the
resolutions and implied that the
reason was the impending visit
to the Middle East of Foreign
Minister Gaston Thorn of
Luxembourg who is president of
the EEC Council of Ministers.
BLUM SAID Thorn would be
received cordially in Israel if his
mission is "broadened." He
explained that he meant if it was
not strictly based on the June
Venice declaration by the EEC
heads of state, which mandated
Thorn's fact-finding trip to the
Middle East.
Referring to another matter,
Blum charged that the UN Sec-
retariate has joined the Security
Council and the General
Assembly in anti-Israel action.
He said that UN Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim
"squarely put himself on the side
of our Arab opponents" by
saying that he favored a Pales-
tinian state.
Asked what the difference was
between "Jewish terrorism" in
the pre-State period in Palestine
and the terrorism of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion today, Blum replied that
efforts by the Jewish "under-
ground" in the Mandate era were
aimed only against the British
occupying power. If civilians
were injured, it was accidental
and regretted, he said. In
contrast, Blum said, the PLO
"concentrates almost exclusively
on civilians, women and
HE SAID the PLO has a
"preference for children" not
only against Israelis but Jewish
children as evidenced by the
terrorist attack on a group of
Jewish youngsters in Antwerp
July 27 in which one was killed
and 20 wounded. The PLO
operates an "anti-Jewish cam-
paign" which it "masquerades"
as a national liberation move-
ment, he said.
Home Eye Test Program Offered
To help find the one in 20 pre-
schoolers who have eye disorders
before it is too late the
National Society to Prevent
Blindness has just issued a Home
Eye Test Program Guide.
The Guide is packed with sug-
gestions on how community
groups can bring the Society's
Home Eye Test for Preschoolers
to families in their area.
The Home Eye Test is a do-it-
yourself way for parents to check
their youngsters for possible
vision problems. A simple, self-
contained kit, the Test includes
an eye chart and instructions for
screening vision. It has been
endorsed by eye specialists and
health professionals.
"A Home Eye Test program
can make a vital contribution to
the lives of our Children," says
Edward W. McGuinness, presi-
dent of the National Society to
Prevent Blindness, Florida
"For most children reached by
the Home Eye Test, it is their
first vision test. When children
fail, their parents are alerted to
the fact that a professional
checkup is called for. If treatment
is indicated, it can make the dif-
ference between good eyesight or
a lifetime problem."
The Home Eye Test Program
Guide is available at $2 a copy

vent Blindness, Florida Affiliate,

JCongress Chides Rev. Coffin
American Jewish
Tress has called on the Rev.
Bni Sloane Coffin to with-
charges of trespassing
Lst a Jewish activist who
Jbfully sought admission to a.
lie hearing at the Riverside
irch in New York City on June
addressed by Mohammed
Ihilm, former mayor of
ho ul.
In a letter to Rev. Coffin,
irriet Pilpel, co-chair of the
kmmission on Law and Social
ttion of the Congress, declared:
I'Your church recently hosted a
thering, sponsored by the
jlestine Solidarity Committee,
which Mohammed Milhilm,
nerly the Mayor of Halhoul on
West Bank, spoke about the
fchts of Palestinians. The public
invited by posters displayed
jminently around the city to
end this meeting.
\' Apparently, however, the
invitation to the public did not
extend to those Jews who were
thought likely to challenge some
of Mr. Milhilm's views. When
Tuvya Gross. whom we
represent, peacefully attempted
to attend the meeting, he was
denied admittance to the church
because those at the door
suspected that he was Jewish,
and asked to leave. When he
refused to do so, again peacefully,
he was arrested and charged with
trespassing. Representatives of
the church, present at the arrest,
not only refused to defend Mr.
Gross' right to attend the
meeting, but refused to intervene
to prevent his arrest.
"This act of intoleranceor to
put it bluntly, anti-Semitism
is hardly surprising when it
comes from supporters of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization, which as recently
as last month reaffirmed its goal
of destroying the Jewish state.
But it is shocking when a
respected church, under the
leadership of a minister who has
consistently op[x>sed bigotry in
all forms, condones acts of-
bigotry upon iis premises and
supports a criminal prosecution
designed to reinforce that aci ot
bigotry. Unless it is disavowed,
the action of Riverside Church
loudly conveys the message that
Jew's are not welcome at public
events held there.
"In view of these facts, we are
interested in determining
whether Riverside Church plans
to pursue the charge against our
client, who is due to appear in
court within the next two
The hearing on the charge of
trespassing was scheduled for
July 23 in Criminal Court. Gross
was to be represented by Nathan
Z. Dershowitz, director of the

PARIS (JTA) France
Officially announced that it plans
fo go ahead with its uranium
Deliveries to Iraq in spite of
blaims that Baghdad is in the
process of manufacturing atomic
weapons. The French Foreign
iinistry released a statement
ere saying that France was
urprised by "fanciful statements
nd accusations" linked to its
operation with Iraq in the

France signed in 1975 a nuclear
agreement with Iraq and has
since supplied the Baghdad
Atomic Energy Commission with

"The Torah belongs to
everyone, so everyone should
participate in its life and its
sustenance," says Rabbi Leonard
S. Zoll of the Keter Tikvah
Community Synagogue in Coral
"The Torah is Torat Chaim, a
Torah (teaching) of life, given life
by its adherents, who in turn
receive life from it." he amplified.
A Torah Scroll Fund is open to
the community at large, with
Jews and non-Jews invited to
contribute' to enable Keter Tik-
vah to purchase a Torah Scroll in
time to celebrate Rosh
Hashanah, the New Year 5741.
The reasoning that the entire
community should be allowed to
participate in the purchase of a
Torah Scroll is based on the
ancient Jewish idea that the
Torah was given to all people, not
only to Jews.
All who contribute will be
inscribed on a special scroll
prepared for the dedication of the
Torah Scroll itself. Contributions
should be sent to the Keter Tik-
vah Synagogue, POB 8125, Coral
Springs, 33066 by Aug. 20.

The fact that Genscher said

two years ago when President
Hafez Assad of Syria similarly
attacked Israel during a visit to

which the Bonn government is
playing a major role, could well
undermine the ongoing peace
process in the Middle East and
encourage Arab extremists.
Meanwhile, it was announced
here that King Hussein of
Jordan was visiting West

talks with Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt and Genscher. Hus-

with the EEC's view of the

called for the Palestine Lib-

Community Relations Com-
mittee (CRC) of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale is alerting the
community to the declining rate
of Soviet Jewish emigration.
In June, only 1,767 Jews were
permitted to leave the USSR,
compared to 4,368 in 1979, a 59.5
percent decrease. Everyone of the
first five months in this year has
shown a decline of between 21
percent and 52.5 percent in the
Jewish emigration.
This severe curtailment, ac-
cording to CRC's National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council and the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry, has had the predicted
effect of discouraging the request
for invitations from Israel, which
in itself has represented intense
pressure on the Soviet regime.
In contrast to the 48,790 first-
time invitations sent from Israel
in the first four months of 1979,
Minister Resigns
Justice Minister Shmuel Tamir
resigned from the Cabinet. After
tendering his resignation to
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin, Tamir explained that he
felt it was his duty to leave the
Cabinet because his party, the
Democratic Movement, has been
reduced to only three Knesset
members. He said he would
remain in the DM and would
continue to support the govern-
ment in the Knesset.
only 17,200 first-time invitations
were sent in the first four months
of 1980.
Unlike previous Soviet efforts
to sharply cut back Jewish
emigration by clearly recognized
policy decrees such as the
education ransom tax in 1972,
which galvanized public opinion
in opposition, we now witness
throughout the Soviet Union
seemingly random bureaucratic
decisions on the local level no
formal pronouncements from the
Kremlin. The process appears
routine, typical of bureaucracy;

republics, particularly the
Russian Republic, which has the

The manner in which the
Soviet Union has disguised this
dangerous development has
muted what should be
widespread public outrage. The
record-breaking numbers of the
previous year, 1979, should not
obscure the sharp reversal in the
emigration of the last six months.
As in the past, this new Soviet
practice must be vigorously and
forcefully challenged. The ex-
perience of the last 15 years had
demonstrated that the Soviet
Union has not been unresponsive
to exposure of the new
"technique" to discourage
Jewish emigration such as in the
case of the education ransom tax.

Concern Mounting
Huge Saudi Arabia Arms Buildup
The serious concern ex-
pressed in Israeli military
circles over Saudi Arabia's
huge purchases of ad-
vanced weaponry from the
United States, and
especially the Saudi re-
quest for equipment that
would endow their Amer-
ican F-15 aircraft with
long-range offensive
capabilities, stems from
the perception of the
dangers facing Israel on its
eastern front.
According to these circles, the
American military hardware
being accumulated by the Saudis
is far in excess of what is
necessary to defend that large,
sparsely populated country. It
makes sense only if the weapons
are intended as the Israelis
believe they are to bolster the
forces of the Arab confrontation
states on Israel's east Jordan,
Syria and Iraq.
already, field more than 5,000
tanks in an offensive against
Israel. Moreover, they possess
the military infrastructure to
absorb large quantities of war
materials, including aircraft,
delivered from Saudi Arabia.
There is, for example, nothing to
prevent the stationing of Saudi
F-5 combat jets in Jordan which
has the facilities and know-how
for their operation.
Israeli military sources say
there is no conceivable reason
why the Saudis need additional
fuel pods to increase the F-15
operational range from its
present 720 kilometers to over
1,600 kilometers unless offensive
operations against Israel are
Nor is there any reason why
Saudi Arabia would need three
times as many laser-guided
bombs as Israel possesses or,
with a regular army of only
44,500 men, electronic command
control equipment capable of co-
ordinating 15 divisions which is
not coincidentally the
approximate size of the com-
bined Jordanian-Syrian-Iraqi
forces on the eastern front.
THE ISRAELIS point out
that Saudi Arabia has supported
Syrian. Iraqi and Jordanian
forces in the past. Except during
the 1956 Suez campaign, the
Saudis have sent expeditionary
forces and material to the Arab
states directly in conflict with
In the 1967 war, they
dispatched a force to Jordan
where it remained until 1977. In
the 1973 war, the Yom Kippur
War, the Saudis sent troops to
Syria. In 1974, 1975 and 1977.
Saudi forces participated in joint
military exercises with the
eastern front states and Saudi
aircraft were stationed in the
host countries.
In the event of a new war
against Israel from the east, the
Saudis could participate even
without sending an ex-
peditionary force across their
borders. They are building three
major military bases, one of
which, Abouk, is only 216
kilometers' flight from Eilat.
With added fuel pods and equip-
ment for mid-air refueling, Saudi"
jets could reach any target inside
Israel '
.THE ISRAELIS grant that
U.S. intentions aie not '';
provide the Saudis with means
to destroy Israel but to reinforce
"moderate" Saudi Arabia so
that it can function, along with
Egypt, as a firm base for
American support of friendlv^^
nations in the Middle East and
i adjoining regions.
Bat the Americans should ask
themselves, Israeli experts on
Arab affairs say, whether the
massive supply of arms to the
Saudis is indeed the best way to
achieve that objective or whether
it could prove to be a disaster.
These experts fear that the
U.S. has not learned the lesson
of several decades of military
and diplomatic mishaps which
resulted from arming and other-
wise supporting corrupt or un-
popular regimes and rulers. They
cite as examples Cuba, Vietnam,
Libya and North Yemen where,
after the pro-American rulers
were overthrown in popular up-
risings or coups, the American
weapons were used against the
U.S. or its Western allies and
their interests.
THE LATEST case in point is
Iran and many informed Israelis,
and experts abroad, wonder
whether the Saudi royal family
may not soon go the way of the

stable and is threatened more
from within than from outside
elements. The bloody events
surrounding the seizure of the
Kaaba Mosque in Mecca, the
assassinations on personal or
religious grounds within the
royal household and court and
the presence of Moslem religious
fanatics who are infuriated by
the monarchy's attempts to
westernize the country, all pose
potential dangers.
The country is volatile because
85 percent of its population is
illiterate and 66 percent is
rurally based. Many young
illiterates, flowing into the city
but finding no work, are ripe for
subversive propaganda.
Although oil has made Saudi
Arabia one of the richest
countries in the world, only one
population is
iil industry and
percent of its
employed in the oi
of these, half are resident aliens.
OUT OF 1,081 physicians in
the country, 988 are foreigners.
There is a Moslem Shi ite
minority (the predominant sect
in neighboring Iran) centered in
the oil producing regions where
unrest is said to be rife.
All of these factors make for
instability. By arming Saudi
Arabia, Israelis say, the U^
may be providing the very
weapons that wiD soon over-
throw the pro-Western
monarchy. It is not only Israel's
security but American interests
that are at stake.
