lollowing a meeting with Secretary of State Alexander

iNiinbei jets scheduled for this month, said of Wein-
: comment: "1 think he's wrong in this case."
I'lie lollowing day. July 23, the Israel Cabinet disputed
other comments by Weinberger.
Deputy Secretary of Slate William Clark, a close
I friend of I'residen Reagan, told reporters Begin is
making ii difficult for the U.S. to continue its tra-
ditional support for Israel.
He was quoted as saying: "Israel is simply not our
only friend in ihe area. You just don't ship gasoline to a
lire. We have something of a crisis on our hands."
Reports from Lebanon indicated that sophisticated
military weapons and missiles were being rushed to
I'LO bases in the country from Russia by Libya and
Syria. Egypt's President Anwar Sadat blamed Syria in
parl for the escalating violence in the Mideast.
Israel staged ground, air and sea attacks for 14
straight days as it assaulted Palestinian Liberation
Organization forces and facilities in Southern Lebanon.
On Tuesday, July 21, the Israeli Cabinet, in a
statement prepared following a meeting between Prime
Minister Menachem Begin and President Ronald
Reagan's special Mideast envoy Philip Habib, urged
i he latter to seek "peaceful relations between Israel and
On the 15 th day of bombings and shellings, Friday,
July 24, Habib arranged a cease-fire truce.
Meanwhile Begin is forming a new Cabinet, having
been directed to do so by President Yitzhak Navonon
the basis of the June 30 election which gave Begins
Likud block W seals in the 120-member Knesset to the
Labor Part's 17 seats. Begin, having won assurances
from ihe National Religious Party, the Agudat Israel
and Tami parlies lo join his coalition, has rejected the
Agudat Israel proposal to amend the Law of Return.
With the seats won by these three minor parties, Begin
will have a bare majority of 61 votes in the Knesset.
On the tensions that are mounting in the Mideast,
Habib responded to the Israel Cabinet statement by
saying he would "seek to secure a ceasefire along the
Israeli Lebanese border as a first step to bringing calm
to the area." He was reported trying to get Saudi Ara-
bia lo use ils influence in getting the PLO to stop shell-
ing Israel.
And in Saudi Arabia, the government announced it
would pay $20 million to the PLO and additional $20
million to Ixibanon to help pay for the damage caused
by the Israeli air attacks.
Libya also announced it would replace any PLO and
Lebanese leftists weapons that were destroyed in the

Alexander Haig, after conferring with President
Keagan and other high officials, that the F-16 planes
scheduled to be delivered to Israel would remain in t!.e
United States until another study is made of the tense
situation in the Mideast.
Begin and Egypt President Anwar Sadat are
scheduled to make separate visits soon to the U.S. to
meet with President Reagan after which a new special
negotiator may be named to get the stalled Camp

1 mn a meet Ing when the rabbis
introduced, Col. Thornton said:
remely pleased and gratified
that you will be visiting prisoners here.
Such visitations are needed in the jail
system. The Passover Seders you have
held in the prison here have been in-
spirational to those Jewish prisoners
who were in attendance."
Rabbi Schwartz said the need for the
additional services of Rabbi Zimmerman
and Gordon stemmed from the ad-
ditional facilities being added to
Broward s prison system of six jails and
the increasing prison population.
Joining in the planning for the
visitations and other details concerning
the help the Chaplaincy Commission can

lished to help service the ap-
proximately 250,000 Medicare
recipients in Broward county.
The new program will engage in a
variety of community outreach
activities to explain people's
rights under the Medicare sys-
tem. The program will also help
individuals secure eligible bene-

Drastic Decline in
Soviet Jewish Emigration
Jewish emigration from the
seviet Union has drastically dc-
i lined in the last 2 years, and the
i.n.issnieiit and arrests of Jewish
Ji i iv ists lias increased, according
in a July '0 report by the Nation-
al Zionist Affairs Dept. of
I ladussah.
The sharp decline in the num-
bei ill Jews permitted to emigrate ,
began in 1080, when 21,471 Jews
emigrated via Vienna a 58
percent decrease from the 51,320
in 1979, which had marked a peak
in the emigration movement.
The emigration figures for the
first hull of 1981 indicate a con-
tinuing downward trend in Jew-
ish emigration. The number of
Jews who arrived in Vienna from
the Soviet Union in the month of
June was 806, bringing the total
for the first six months of 1981 to
1>,W>8. These figures represent a
55 percent decrease during the
tame period in 1980, and a
decrease of 73 percent compared
to tin same period in 1979.
It is (cared that if the decline in
the number ol Jews permitted to
emigrate continues, coupled with
new obstacles confronting
potential applicants, emigration
mav slow down to a trickle.
In Broward County, the re-
gion, headed by Josephine New-
man, newly elected president, to-
gether with Esther Cannon.
Soviet Jewry chairman, is
gathering thousands of signa-
t in es for the petition to be sent to

ist Organization of America, has
named Ida Nudel to be the reci-
pient of the Henrietta Szold
Award at this years national
convention, scheduled for August
9-12, at the Hilton Hotel. New
York. It is desperately hoped
that Pres. Brezhnev will free Ids
Nudel in time so that she car
accept, in person. Hadassah's
eminent award, and to then go to
I srael to join her sister, Elena
I rulman.
A joint statement issued by
Mrs. Newman and Mrs. Cannon
declared that Ida Nudel has done
no more than ask for freedom for
Jews to emigrate from Russia for
Israel, and for this she has been
h.u.issed. tortured, denied inedi-
ial attention, and subjected to
indescribable treatment in Siber-
ian exile.

he indicated, will serve as an ad-
vocate for the elderly. This is
probably the second such Medi-
care advocacy organization in the
country. The only other group,
and one with which Deutsch is
lamihar because of his residency
in New Haven while attending
Yale Law School, is in Connec-
ticut. He believes that the worst
Medicare abuses, inadvertently
or otherwise, come in the area of
patients in nursing homes seek-
ing benefits and patients released
trom hospitals in need of home
1 health care.
MIS is in the process of
contacting senior centers,
churches, synagogues, and con-
dominium associations to begin
community outreach activities.
Members of such groups or per-
sons who may be having specific
Medicare problems should call
MIS at the Jewish Family Ser-
vice offices. JFS phone in Lau-

Mica Gives Medicare
Directory to Libraries
It is now possible to know how
much Medicare will pay for
C n.on medical procedures before
you visit the doctor.
Congressman Dan Mica, (D-
Florida), has made available for
the first time to the citizens of
Broward and Palm Beach
counties, the current edition of
the Medicare Director of Prevail-
ing Charges.
Mica said lliat he had received
requests from numerous in-
dividuals desiring a copy of this
Directory and because of the
prohibitive cost of obtaining such
a large number of copies to fill
individual requests he is provid-
ing a copy to each public library
in the two counties.
.The Directory will be helpful to
Medicare recipients in obtaining
information as to the actual
dollar amount Medicare will pay
for certain medical procedures.
For example, if an individual
should refer to the Directory, he
would find that in the two
counties Medicare approved
charges of S25 for an initial visit
to the doctor's office. If a
Medicare recipient received a bill
ol S35, he knows he will be
reimbursed $26 of the cost by
Medicare and the remaining $10
would be out of pocket expenses.
Mica noted that only the cost
ol common medical procedures
could be found in this Directory.
There are literally hundred of
these procedures listed. However,
specialized procedure information
can be obtained through local
Medicare offices.
"I hope that the Directory will
lie of assistance to the Medicare
recipients in determining the
Medicare reimbursements they
are due. By making it available to
the local libraries it should be
convenient to a majority of the
people of our area," said Mica.
Specific information can be
found on pages 62 through 66 of
the Directory. Copies of the
Directory can be obtained from
the Health Care Financing
Administration, Reproduction
and Printing Branch. Clwynn

The Jewish
Has A Right
To Know:
There are several funeral chapels in South
Florida that claim to serve those. of the
Jewish faith.
Even more disturbing, they do not make this
fact apparent to the Jewish community.
5 At Menorah Chapels, unlike the others,
serving the Jewish community is more than
a business it's a way of life.
We wanted you to know. Because at the death of a loved
one, the traditions of our faith and the concern of our
people should be genuine. It's your right, and our religion.

The Half-Truth Respoken
One fact is clear: The half-truth of the Palestinians be-
witches the western nations more and more so that they
do not understand the reality of PLO and Middle East
What the west sees are Israeli planes that bombed Bei-
rut twice last weekend and into Monday. It sees civilian
casualties and is outraged although there never does
g appear to be an equivalent brand of outrage voiced in the
west or, indeed anywhere else, when it is Israeli civilians
who are the casualties of the unrelenting Palestinian war :j
against the Jewish State.
What the west does not see is the PLO's deliberate : I *J JT%,7?
decision to set up its headquarters and many of its and.- | %y&? #tf %&
lary military operations smack m the middle of Lebanon s .....u c.._j_.. a..- c
most crowded civilian population centers and to seek
immunity from attack there by a revolting kind of camou-
In this sense, the west shows no concern that Yasir
Arafat is conducting his campaign against the existence of
Israel from the very same centers he declares he is pro-
tecting, but about which he has no real concern at all.
In all of this, the repeated Arab propensity for calling
Israel the new source of Nazi practice and Prime Minister
Begin a Hitler is unspeakable. The history of the Arab
world's alliances with Hitler during the Nazi era sets the
lie to their unrelenting reconstruction of the past. To what
extent does the west fall for this? We would bet fairly ex-
Having made these observations, we are pressed to'
emphasize that the Israeli attacks on Beirut, while under-
standable from a military point of view, are less under-
standable otherwise. No doubt, Prime Minister Begin be-
heves wfh profound conviction that knocking out the
. PLO centers is as important to Israel's survival as
I knocking out the Iraqi Osirak reactor was outside of
; Baghdad.
j On the other hand, such reservoir of good-will that
: Israel had prior to that June 7 operation is long since
| spent. There wasn't much of it to begin with either, and so
; the raids on Beirut should have been weighed against that
I perilously diminishing reserve.
Thu is especially true in light of the election results on
June 30, which Begin can in no way interpret as a mandate
to rule his country another four years. The stinging critic-
ism of the Beirut bombings already voiced in several
major Israeli newspapers suggests that there is hardly a
unanimous feeling about them.
Met with divided opinion at home and with the kind of
reaction abroad that brought a halt to the delivery of 10
American-built F-16's last Friday, can the Begin decision
to continue with the campaign in the name of self-defense
be justified at this time?
Tisha B'Av, August 9
Memorializes Major Tragedies
We are not in a position to judge, but we certainly can
No Real Love
What seems like a mild Reagan Administration reaction
to the Beirut bombings on its face is probably less so in
g fact. Still, Secretary of State Haig, speaking for President
g Reagan, in announcing that the 10 F-16's would not go to
Israel as scheduled last Friday, noted that this did not
g mean that they would not go at all.
In fact, it was Edwin Meese, the White House counsel-
g or, who more than mildly observed that sending the planes
S off as scheduled would only make things worse at this
g time, and so the shipment would have to wait some more.
jg How much more, he did not say. But we would wager
g not for long. As we say, this is not sheer love of Israel we
g: are talking about in the corridors of Capitol Hill.
S There is the Reagan economic retrenchment plan that
:g still need passing. There is the Reagan defense budget
g that is -.daggering in size not only by contrast with
:: economic retrenchment elsewhere but by its own right.
: There is the coming Reagan assault on the Social Security
gj system in the name of saving it. There is the Reagan justi-
g fication to the world's democratic leaders in Ottawa this
g week of high U.S. interest rates about which the Adminis-
g tration is doing precisely nothing. There is the Reagan de-
S termination to sell AW ACS to Saudi Arabia come what
g may.
All of these Reagan gambits need support on Capitol
g Hill. Israel's dwindling reserve of good-will abroad not-
g withstanding, there is still a good bit of it left in the Con-
v: gress of the United Sta'
with Sunday, Aug. 9.
Tisha B'Av commemorates the
major tragedies of Jewish his-
tory, events which are the
paradigm of defeat and despair,
of sadness and distress, and yet
of future redemption as well. On
Tisha B'Av, the loss of the sacred
Temples in Jerusalem is
mourned, yet, in a vision of re-
demption, the sages proclaimed:
^ "On the day of destruction of the
g Temple, the Meshiach /Messiah)
S would be born."
Both the razing of the first
Temple in 586 BCE (Before the
Common Era) by the Babylonian
armies under the command of
:: Nebuchadnezzar, and that of the
:J second Temple by the Romans,
g led by Titus, are memorialized on
g Tisha B'Av. Tradition also as-
g signs to Tisha B'Av as the day on
g which the generation of Israelites
g who had left Egypt was decreed
to die in the desert, because it
g, was unable to sustain its faith in
g God despite the climactic events
of the Exodus from Egypt and
the revelation on Sinai. A new
generation, born to freedom in
the wilderness, was to be priv-
ileged to enter the Promised
This day marks as well the fall
of the fortress of Beitar to the
Romans in the year 135 CE, sym
bolizing the crushing of the revolt
giof Bar Kochba, which sought to
regain political and religion
rulership for the Jewish people in
their homeland.
A year later, it was to mark ihe
plowing of the Temple Mourn by
the Romans and the establish-
ment of a Roman temple on thai
Tragedy continued to follow.
The Kinot, prayers recited on
Tisha B'Av morning, refers to
the burning of 24 cartloads of the
Talmud in Paris in 1242, grievous
blow to Jewish learning and
unity at a time prior to the ad-
vent of the printing press. Other
mot reflect the pain and anguish
Of scores of Jewish communities
destroyed during the tragic years
of the Crusades.
Tradition also ascribes the
final expulsion of the Jewish
community from Spain in 1492 to
Tisha B'Av. This was a com
munily which had achieved an
unmatched 'Golden Age" of
cultural and religious exaltation.

Jewish law and custom,
through the years, notes the
feeling of foreboding and anguish
g that becomes increasingly more
g intense during the three-week
period from the 17th day of
Tamuz (July 19, this year) to
Tisha B'Av. During these three
weeks, it is customary to avoid
joyous occasions, so weddings do
not take place during this period,
and refraining from participation
in those acts that would engender
the shehecheyanu, the blessing
over that which is new or pleas-
The prophetic portions of the
Bible during the three weeks
prior to Tisha B'Av, whose Sab-
baths are called Tlata
D'furanuta three Sabbaths of
destruction, echo the theme of
the moral backsliding and degra-
dation of the Jewish people, and
the punishment that must
iih \ itably follow. On the Sabbath
prior to Tisha B'Av, referred to
as Shabbat Hazon, the first
chapter of Isaiah is read, and his
message resounds throughout
the ages:
Thy silver is become dross, thy
wine mixed with water. Thy
princes are rebellious, and
companions of thieves: every one
loveth bribes, and follow after re-
wards; they judge not the father-
less, neither does the cause of the
widow come unto them Pur
away the evil of your doings .

while the Book of Lamentations,

floor itself.
At the Sunday morning. Aug.

don the tallit and t fellin, which
are considered ornaments of
pride, beauty and glory. The
Book of Lamentations is read
once again. Moving elegies are
chanted, including one mourning
the destruction of European Jew-
ry in the Holocaust.
As the day wanes, the elements
of hope and redemption begin to
emerge. The tallit and t'fellin are
worn at the afternoon service,
prayers of comfort are said, and
as the fast day ends with the eve-
ning service, the prayer of sanc-
tification of the New Moon is re-
cited. In mystical Jewish
thought, it reflects the hope for
the coming of the Messiah and
the belief that all of nature and
history will be restored to whole
someness and perfection.
In recent times, that longing
tor redemption is linked with re-
newed ties with the land of Israel.
It has become customary in syn-
agogues throughout the world to
highlight the work of the Jewish
National Fund in redeeming the
land of Israel, and to contribute
to its projects.
Shirley Miller, JNF director in
Fort Lauderdale, noted that "the
redemption of the land of Israel is
inexorably linked with the re-
demption of the Jewish people.
We hope that every synagogue in
North Broward will support the
sacred work of JNF at its ser-
vices on Tisha B'Av."
As the Sabbath before Tisha
B'Av is marked by gloom and de-
spair, the seven Sabbaths follow-
ing Tisha B'Av are termed-
Sheva D'nechemta (seven Sab-
baths of comfort). The pro-
phetical portion read as the Haf-
lorah on the Sabbath following

A collegial colloquium (an

to hear the presentation of a topic
and follow up with questions and

As Jews we've known anti-

What brought about this hate

Their New Testament is just an
unproved copy of the Old Testa-
ment with certain changes made.

were given to Moses on Mt Sinai

Survivors in June. The Brodzkis,
who led the delegation of North

ceremonies at the Western Wall.
Each candle represented sym-

during the Nazi era of genocide.
"Mir zynen do we are here,"
said Benjamin Meed, a survivor
of the Warsaw Ghetto revolt,
during the ceremoney, "in de-

would rob our martyrs of their
deaths, even as our people were
robbed of their lives. We will
never be silent again.''

NEW YORK A specialist in
immigration and ethnicity has
urged American policymakers
concerned with bilingual educa-
tion, immigrant re-settlement,
and language teaching to rec-
ognize that language is invested
with deeply felt social and
cultural meanings," and to forge
language policies that "come to
grips with this reality."
Moreover, maintains Gary
Rubin, program specialist of the
Institute on Pluralism and Group
Identity of the American Jewish
Committee, the United States
should view immigrants "not
just as people who need to learn a
new language, but also as assets
whose native linguistic skills can
be resources" for this country.
Rubin's views are contained in
an article on "Language Policy
and the Refugees," which has
just been published in The
Journal of Refugee Resettlement.
POINTING OUT that today's
newcomers to the United States
include "more types of people,
speaking a greater variety of
languages" than any previous
immigrant group in America's
history, Rubin asserts that
Americans have reacted with
"ambivalence and confusion" to
this "level of linguistic plural-
"Bitter disputes," he con-
tinues, "have broken out on
issues such as bilingual education
and linguistic requirements for
citizenship Language policy

Florida Medical Center, Lau-

Albert B. Schwartz, director of
the Chaplaincy Commission of
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, to conduct a

Tom Futch, administrator of

cepted by Rabbi Schwartz, who
said that he would arrange to

time chaplain of the Mount Sinai
Medical Center in Miami Beach,

The seminar will take place
Tuesday, Sept. 1, in the hos
pital's auditorium. The day stafl
will assemble at 10 a.m. and the
evening staff will assemble at 4

the remainder of the in-service
hour consisting of questions that
nurses and doctors would like

emotional topics now before the
American public."
To deal more effectively with
the tensions surrounding lin-
guistic issues, continues Rubin,
government and civic leaders
must understand the emotional
and cultural implications of
language. "Most current policy
discussions," he says, "assume
that speech is merely a con-
venient vehicle for describing an
objective world," but, he goes on,
language studies "argue against
this assumption."
HE CITES several studies
that indicate that different
languages "are not merely
(different) methods for ex-
pressing common thoughts, but
are reflections of the ways that
. distinct cultures view society
and nature": that learning a new
language means "not only using
new words (but) learning to think
in a completely new way." and
that an individual's total per-
ception of himself is shaped by
the language he uses.
Rubin's article concludes by re-
commending that policymakers
concerned with acculturation and
language do the following:
Recognize the emotional and
social factors inherent in
language and take these factors
into account when planning their
Understand that "the
transition from one language to

Dau Camp Celebrates Jerusalem Day
The first of the two four-week sessions of the
Jewish Community Center's Day Camp ended in
a "blaze of glory" if not a blaze, at least it was
the hottest day of the year in North Broward, but,
it did not deter the campers, their unit heads,
their specialists, and their counselors from
creating a little bit of Jerusalem on the 16-acre
Pel hnan Campus at 6501 W. Sunrise Blvd.
The cermonis for Yom Yerushalyim (Jerusalem
Day) opened with a procession through the
campus on "streets'" marked with Jerusalem
names to the raising of the Israel flag, securing
paper money at Bank Leumi, buying Jaffa
orunges, other goodies at a shouk, lunching under
the trees at Cafe Shalom, dancing and singing,
and closing with a ceremony in front of the
Western Wall depicted by a decorated sheet
dangling from the roof of one of the buildings.
Rabbi Albert B. Schwarz, director of the
Chaplaincy Commission of the Jewish Federation
ol Greater Fort Lauderdale, was the
"Cheerleading" speaker in front of and among the
. uiuuei s sealed on the grass just before the Oneg
Shabbat which included the blessings of Shabbat
candles, sanciilualion of the wine, and the motzi
o\ ei the challah. Campers Jennifer Slamy, Ellen
Greenspan and Philip Kackin were the Oneg
Sliubbl celebrants. Jennifer is pictured in the

Shabbat Candelabra Presented to Fla. Medical Center for Patient Use
Tom Kutch (left), an administrator of Florida
Medical Center, 5000 W. Oakland Park Blvd.,
Lauderdale Lakes, accepts an electric Shabbat can-
delabra from Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz, director of the
Chaplaincy Commission of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Looking on is Rabbi Nathan
Kricdinun, the volunteer auxiliary chaplain serving the
hospital. He is pictured explaining the candelabra to
Doru lacobson of Lauderhill, with Nurse Barbara
Tiumc standing by.
Tin candelabra has a long cord with a special switch,
mi that after it is plugged in near a patient's bed, the
patient can press the switch to light the candles.
Attached to the candelabra, encased in a plastic case, is
a card with the blessings for kindling the Shabbat
candles, also the blessing used for Yom Tov (holiday),
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and the
shehecheyanu. The blessings are in Hebrew, tran-
sliterated and also in English.
Kaliln Friedman will take the candelabra around to
those patients each Friday who desire to bench (kindle)
the Shabbat candles.
Kabbi Schwartz said that Rabbi Friedman is the
busiest of the Chaplaincy Commission's corps of
volunteer chaplains serving North Broward hospitals.
He said that Rabbi Friedman makes as many as 300
patient visits a week at Florida Medical Center, and is
there, practically on a daily basis visiting Jewish
patients, and administering to their spiritual needs.
Both rabbis offered prayers for Mrs. Jacobson's speedy
and complete recovery and thanked her for her
cooperation during the picture-taking. She told the
rabbis that she has two sons living in Israel and a
daugher who is a professor at University of Wisconsin.
She was looking forward to sending them pictures of
the event.

I left the tour one day so that I

Like Julie, he's a recent high

and plans to enter Duke Univer-
sity in September, and maybe re-
turn next summer to Israel for
extra study. Julie is a graduate of
Nova and is going toUniversityof
North Carolina in September on a
swimming scholarship.
Mrs. Bassichis, who had her
20-year-old son Jeffrey with her

ning seven medals, was simply
marvelous. Jeffrey was throughly
pleased with the mission. Every-

EEC Chief Says Europe Was
Ready to Wait and See
_ Live was not discussed
ton Thorn, president of the
commission of the Euro-
pean Community, said that
the West European coun-
tries will wait to see what
direction the government
being formed by Israeli
Premier Menachem Begin
will take before pushing the
"Europpean initiative" for
a Middle East peace.
Even though the Israeli
government will be run by the
same people, the Europeans want
to give them time to offer then-
own policy and see the i response
of their neighbors," Thorn told a
press conference ending a five-
day visit to Washington.
HE SAID the European initia-
tive was not discussed in his
talks with President Reagan,
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig and other members of the
Administration. The discussion
concentrated on economic issues
dealt with at the economic sum-
mit in Ottawa.
Thorn said the European
initiative is not an attempt "to
find an alternative to Camp
David" or the "American initia-
tive" but to take part in Mideast
peace efforts and be "helpful."
He said the EEC was not trying
to compete with the U.S.
Thorn noted that the EEC's
Venice declaration in June 1980,
which called for associating the
Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation with the Middle East
Peace Process, was a decision by
the West Europeans "to take a

with 64 medals to the U.S.' 49,

THE ACTUAL competition
during the last day was featured
by the overall team play of the
U.S. squad and South Africa. In
tennis at the Ramat Hasharon
courts, the Americans dominated
by taking 16 of the 20 gold
medals with Israel and South
Africa sharing the remaining four
medals between them. Only
Shlomo Glickstein, Israel's top
tennis player, prevented the U.S.
from making a clean sweep of
the court's play. He coasted to an
easy win over Brad Gilbert of
Piedmont, Calif., 6-4, 6-3, in the
men's final.

Games when the Mexicans A.
Walerstein and M. Fastlie re-
fused to take the court against E.
Saphire and J. Saks of South
Africa in the over' 35-year final,
thereby forfeiting the match. The
Mexican tennis manager advised
Maccabiah court officials before
the start of the tournament that
none of his players would com-
pete against South African
players at the insistence of the
Mexican government which bans
sporting association with South
Africa in international officially
recognized events.
Earlier the Mexicans refused to
play a scheduled soccer match
with South Africa, forcing the
organizing committee to switch
the two teams to separate foot-
ball brackets. The enraged South
African booters went on to beat
the United States in the football
finals 3-1 at Ramat Gan stadium.
For the Americans it was a moral
victory since they had never
taken down a medal in soccer and
were ecstatic with their silver
runner-up team trophy.
The South Africans dominated
the final game after coming from
behind. The U.S. scored first in
the 10th minute of play on a goal
by Kenneth Abrams of Spring
Valley, N.Y., but lagged behind
the rest of the contest. Israel just
managed to come up with a
bronze medal by downing Great
Britain 5-4.
THE U.S. retained its basket-
ball title won four years ago by
swamping Israel 91-71 at the Yad
b'liahu stadium. The home club
went with its reserve in-
ternational squad and was no
match for the Americans. Dan

National Basketball Association.
If he fails in Colorado, he is all set

Similarly, in the quest for the
bronze medal, Canada's Bill

Another Chance to Learn Through Project Renewal
Six thousand women
representing more than 14,000
Israelis who have found that it is
never too late to learn to read and
write, gathered in Kiryat Eleazer
Stadium here recently to
celebrate their achievement and
tehila, lhe program to eradicate
adult illiteracy in Israel.
They cheered as prizes for
outstanding achievement were
awarded to tehila centers in
Upper Tiberias, Dimonaand Hod
llasluiron and as Minister of
Education Zevulum Hammer
assured them that despite overall
budget cuts, the program, which
is called Israel's most human
and most important" will be
continued and expanded in the
coming year.
Tehila runs classes for adults
in 60 centers throughout the
nation, and is an important part
of the social rehabilitation
programs in most Project
Renewal neighborhoods.
Begun as an experiment four
years ago, tehila is Israel's an-
swer to the adult illiteracy which
still plagues the country. Today,
approximately 12 percent of the
population is still illiterate, and
an additional 20 percent have had
less than five to eight years of
.schooling. Among those enrolled
in the program, 40 percent of
them have never studied at all
and the remainder have had far
lea t han six years of schooling.
Ninety percent of the students
are women, long-time residents ol
Israel who came in the early
years of statehood primarily from
the Alro Asian countries. They
married young, raised large
families and had little or no
opportunity to study.
Eager to Talk
After the ceremony marking
the close of their academic year,
the happy graduates of the pro-
gram were eager to tell their

Maryland Racial Incidents
Aimed at Jews, Blacks
spate of racial incidents, aimed at
Jews and Blacks in suburban
Montgomery County, Md., has
aroused County Executive
Charles Gilchrist.
He has urged the prosecutor's
office to transmit the "unmistak-
able message that this kind of
conduct will not be tolerated in
Montgomery County."
Gov. Harry Hughes of Mary-
land has also called on state
prosecutors to crack down on
"misguided hatemongers who
seem to emerge during times of
economic stress and emotional
focal officials were reluctant to
adress the issue publicly for fear
that this sort" of ugly news"
could engender even more
trouble. But the list of racially
motivated vandalism and provo-
cation has grown in recent
Volunteer Aids
months to a point where they
cannot be ignored.
On June 25, five white teen-
agers sprayed a caustic material
Irom a lire extinguisher on a
group of Blacks in Wheaton. On
June 7, a Rockville man found his
car tarred and daubed with anti-
Semitic graffiti. Less than two
weeks earlier, anti-Semitic slo-
gans were written on the door of a
Rockville school, and a day
earlier a swastika was painted on
the sidewalk in front of a local
Leaflets urging youngsters to

have been distributed openly at
county schools. In all, 39 inci-
dents of cross-burning, Harass-
ment, vandalism and assaults
have been reported to the police
during the first six months of this
year compared to fewer than 25
during all of last year and less
than a dozen the year before.
According to Gilchrist, "These
are not pranks These are sav-
age assaults on the sensibility of
our fellow citizens."
pattern of racial incidents varies
from one locale to another. In
Wheaton it is usually whites a-
gainst Blacks; in Silver Springs,
Blacks against Hispanics; and in
Rockville and Potomac, Jews are
the principal targets. Many of the
incidents seem to be the work of
teenagers, police say.

"Don't ask me why I never

born woman in her late forites
from Tirat Hacarmel. "I just
never did. There was never time
or the place. Today, when I read
the sub-titles on television, my
son-in-law says kol hakavod, all

A classmate, Rina, had high
praise for her center's director.
"Such a person, so good. I work
shifts in a factory," she ex-
plained, "and the director
arranged my schedule so that
when I m on the morning shift, I

I work nights, I come in the
"Few countries in the world
have been as successful as Israel
in developing such a systematic
course in basic levels of literacy,"
according to psychologist Rachel
Tokatli. "In the past it was
considered impossible to get
illiterate women out of their
homes for regular organized
study.Tehila has succeeded in
helping them overcome their
embarrassment, hesitations and
fears. Today, they sit and learn
as if it were the most natural
thing in the world. They are
active and enthusiastic members
of the community of learners'.
Teachers Trained
"Our teachers and ad-
ministrators," Dr. Tokatli con-
tinued, "go through a series of
training courses, workshops and
advanced summer seminars,
specially developed by the
Department of Adult Education
in the Ministry of Education. In
addition, we have prepared
special graded material whose
subject content ranges from
geography and art to Bible
studies and Jewish history. This
is information our students never
formally received. Were making
better citizens of them better
Israelis and better Jews, too."
"The work is not easy," ad-
mitted Miriam, a veteran
primary school teacher of 25
years, now an instructor in the
program. "It is much harder than
leaching children. You need to be
Ixtlh a close friend as well as a
teacher. Yet their joy when they
learn compensates for the hard
work. Just to bring these women
out of their kitchens and show
them that there is a world outside
is a big thing. It's important for
them and for the State of Israel."
The integration of tehila into
the Project Renewal has helped
the program to expand much -
more rapidly. Project Renewal
has financed the renovation of
abandoned buildings, creating
modern school structures to
house tehila and other social and
education programs. Many new
centers are accommodating up to
300 students every week.
Through Project Renewal, it is
expected that the total tehila
student population will double
during the coming academic year.
"The fight to eradicate adult
illiteracy is an integral part of
bridging the gap between Israel's
disadvanlaged and our more
established sector," according to
Eliezer Schmueli, Director-
General of the Ministry of
Education. "There is a definite
correlation between school failure
in youngsters and their parents' .-n
illiteracy. To improve the level of
our children's performance in
school we must also work with
their parents and bring both into
llie mainstream of society."

For many years my husband and I
thought about traveling to the Holy
Land. Although we were versed in the
history of this land, our greatest ex-
pectations were exceeded by what we
Gene and I departed from Miami and
arrived in Israel on Saturday evening
May 23, 1981. Ascending the Judean
mountains to Jerusalem, the "eternal
city" and the home of our three great
religions, is a truly emotional experience.
While walking the dirt roads of this
walled ancient city, we immediately
comprehended why this city is so holy
to all our major religionsand why
Jerusalem has been the site of some of
history's greatest conflicts. We
recognized that this was not going to
be another tourthis would be a
unique experience.
Presented is a pictorial overview of a recent
visit by Senator Paula Hawkins to the
modern state of Israel the birthplace of
the two major religions of the Western world.
Senator Hawkins and her husband Gene had
the opportunity to visit Israel and to see the
miracle of a modern state born out of barren
rock and desert sand a country whose
technological advances are among the most
sophisticated in the world, whose unique ed-
ucational system integrates both Eastern
and Western cultures, and whose military
capabilities form a vital link in America's
global geopolitical strategy.
We appreciate and thank Senator Hawkins
and her husband Gene for sharing this excit-
ing experience with us.

Our first visit was to Yad Vashem, the memorial
to the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
This holy place serves as a constant reminder to
the world of the horrors of Nazism and the
genocide committed against the European Jews.
This must never happen again. We walked
through the museum which pictorially shows the
rise of Nazism and the cruelties that were inflicted
on a people only because they were Jews. We
viewed the impressive monuments to the heroes
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and then partici-
pated in a ceremony commemorating the death of
the Six Million.
Next we went to Bethlehem, where we visited the
Church of the Nativity the holy place where
Jesus was born. While here, we witnessed a
confirmation ceremony and then chatted with the
parents, whose family had lived near Bethlehem
for hundreds of years. Our next stop was to visit
ihe Mormon garden on the Mount of Olives. Here
we saw the site where the Mormon missionary
i 'rson Hyde dedicated the land to the Jews: pro-
claimed, m 1841. the rebirth of the State of Israel:
anu Reckoned Jews to return from all over the
worid to restore this historic land and form a
modem state. This was particularly meaningful
since Gene and I are Mormons.
After lunch we met with Jerusalem s legendary
mayor Teddy Kollek. I asked Mayor Kollek why,
in Jerusalem, where there are so many potentially
1 A*
Hn i \ s1
hostile groups living side by side, there is no
visible street crime. He responded that the in-
tegrity of the neighborhood and the importance of
the family unit are two values held deeply by all
groups. It is these values that prevent crime.
What a great lesson for us in the United States
who are plagued with an increasing crime rate!
At 4:00 we met with David Ephrati in the Minis-
try of Foreign Affairs: he handles relations with
all the churches. He explained the ongoing
dialogue with representatives of the Homan
Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Moslem religions
regarding the importance of preserving the
unique status of the religious shrines throughout
the State of Israel. I was most impressed with
safeguards that allow each religion to function
freely, without any government interference,
while allowing each to respect the rights of others.
We met with Yitzhak Shamir, the Minister of:
Foreign Affairs, who gave us a much greater
comprehension of the fragility of the existing
"peace" in the Middle East.
Mr. Shamir warned against allowing sophisti-
cated arms to fall into the hands of potentially
hostile or unstable neighbors. This would endan-
ger not only the security of Israel, but would also
compromise America's military technology and
jeopardize the safety of American pilots and sol-
diers. He showed us the geographic proximity of
Saudi Arabia and Israel and emphasized that
those lethal weapons would have no other even-
tual use but against Israel. Mr. Shamir's words
were sobering. He reminded us not only of the
most recent declaration of the Saudi leaders, de-
claring a Holy War against Israel, but also of the
Saudi's participation in at least three previous
wars against Israel.
That evening, we met with the current leader of
the Labor Party, Shimon Peres. He stated that,
even though there are great differences between
Mr. Begin and himself, they share a common
ground concerning defense and adherence to the
belief that Israel and the United States share a
common position.
Monday, May 26,1961
We began the day by meeting with Prime Minis-
ter Menachem Begin. I was impressed by his keen
insight into Israel's relations with her Arab
neighbors, his sincere desire for peace and his rec-
ognition of the Soviets as the most serious threat
to peace and stability in the Middle East and Per-
sian Gulf regions. He emphasized the disaster
that would result if sophisticated American
weapons were sold to unstable Arab states who
neither participate in the peace process nor sup-
port American foreign policy.
Later in the morning, we met with Mrs. Tamar
Eshel, a member of the Knesset (the Israeli Par-
liament). She noted that Israel is the only demo-
cratic state in the Middle East. She, a duly
elected member of the Knesset, serves with other
duly elected members including other women,
Arabs, Bedouins and Druze members. We dis-
cussed the sociological problems caused by the
large number of Jewish refugees absorbed from
Arab countries refugees who, when they enter
Israel, for the first time enter the twentieth
century refugees with large families and many
young children who have to be educated and
integrated into a modern western society.
Gene and I spent the rest of the morning at the
"new" Hadassah Hospital, a modern, world-
renowned medical center. Some of the major ad-
vances in medicine have been developed by
members of the staff of this hospital which treat
Jew and Arab alike. One of the doctors explained
to me that, before 1947, Arabs from ail over the
Middle East came to Hadassah tor advanced

I Gene and I felt that this was a terrible waste of
I physical property.
iNonnan Braman then told us the story of a

slaughtered while the "protectors" did nothing.
Although this event happened in 1948, I can un-
Iderstand Israel's attitude that it must protect
I itself guarantees cannot be relied on.
I After lunch at the hospital and meeting with the
I medical staff, we visited Jerusalem's religious
I shrines, now accessible to all in a unified city. Je-
I nisalem is a holy city of the western world's three
I major religions Judaism, Christianity and
I Islam. I was inspired to stand at the Western
I Wall, to walk the Statirjf, of the Cross, and to
view the Al-Aqsai Mosque holy sites dear to so
I many people and now accessible to all religions.
I We left for the north via the Jordan Valley where
I we stopped at Kibbutz Gilgal. located three miles
I from the Jordanian border, composed of approxi-
I mately eighty members, both Christian and Jew,
from all parts of the world. This kibbutz has a
I very large number of children. The older children
I expressed their concerns about security and their
I fear of this territory's being returned to the Arabs
I which would mean that they would have to
I leave their home. They reminded Gene and me
I that Jews were not allowed to live in occupied Je-
I rusalem or the West Bank while it was illegally oc-
Icupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967. The younger
I children showed me the bomb shelters in which
I they sleep every night of their lives. We inspected
I the vineyards and were amazed to see barren rock
I turned into fertile soil and grapes growing on
I this soil. This ability of these pioneers to make
I productive use of the land is a major reason for
I the success of the State of Israel.
I We continued our journey to Lake Tiberias, the
I Sea of Galilee, where Christ's ministry began and
I where he performed many of his miracles. The
I historical significance of this area is as important
las its present day significance. Now a heavily
[ fished sea surrounded by flourishing agricultural
(communities, it supplies 80 percent of Israel's
[fresh water. Prior to 1967, the Syrians and their
Iheavy artillery constantly bombarded the sea and
line communities surrounding it. making
I everyday farming and fishing a life or death
lexperience. The serenity that now exists must be
I such a sharp contrast to those times of peril.
I We then ascended the Golan Heights to visit Kib-
I butz Kfar Ham v. Of the 110 member population,
one-third are American and most of these are
I American military veterans. Lenny Spector, who
I conducted our tour, is from Bayonne. New Jersey.
I He impressed upon us the importance of the Is-
! raeli presence in the Golan Heights to protect the
I heartlands of Israel. He reminded us that, during
[the 1973 Yom Kippur War,the Syrians would
I have overrun and destroyed Israel had it not been
I for the Israeli chain of settlements in the Golan
I Heights. As he was talking. I gazed from the
I barren rock-strewn countryside to the kibbutz's
11,000 acres of land under cultivation and shared
I the pride these people feel. From these heights, I
I could see how easily the Syrians could shell the

nerable farms around the Sea of Galilee. I fully
[ understood the peril to Israel and her need to re-

land drove to the holy Jewish city of Sfad, a
iquaint town where scholars intermingle with
artists and tourists visiting Jewish holy places. It
was in Sfad that I met Sara Zefira, the head of the
Israel Red Magen David, an organization with
Bnuch meaning for me since I serve as its United
States National Co-Chairman. Sara showed me a
fci'w ambulance that had just been delivered there
knd told me of the fine work being done by our or-
ganization. I resolved at that time to continue
*ven more strongly my fight to force the Interna-
Itional Red Cross to recognize the Red Star of
David as an official symbol just as it does the Red
Cross, the Iranian Red Lion and Sun, and the
Moslem Red Crescent to include the Red
Magen David Adom as a member of the interna-
tional organization of mercy and to allow
official affiliation of the American and Israeli
sister organizations.
We returned to Tel Aviv and had a most enjoy-
able dinner with Mordecai Zippori, the Deputy
Minister of Defense and his lovely wife Tova. I
had looked forward to meeting this couple who
are cousins of good friends of mine in South Flor-
ida, Stan and Karen Margulies. We had a
fascinating interchange of ideas regarding Amer-
ica's and Israel's strategic and military needs.
Zippori expressed to me in the strongest military
.*,; our broths- mFrMltWof/**

terms how threatening the sale of sophisticated
weaponry such as the enhanced F-15's and
AWACS would be to the security of Israel. He
then added a much more startling thought how
could we Americans allow our most secret
military technology to be given a regime already
unstable? There was very little question in his
mind that the secrets of our AWACS and F-15's
would soon fall into Russian hands if given to the
Saudis, just as our F-14 airplane technology and
our Harpoon and Lance missile secrets had fallen
into Russian hands soon after being given to
Iran; and that President Carter planned to deliver
AWACS to Iran just before the fall of the Shah
, AWACS that would now be in the hands of Aya-
tollah Khomeni and the Russians. He reminded
me that many of the same people who testified
before the Senate that this could never happen in
Iran were now coming forth with similar
testimony about Saudi Arabia. I restated my
active opposition to such a sale. We must learn
from our mistakes, not repeat them.
Thursday, May 28,1981
Early the next morning, we arrived in Beersheva,
the capital of the Negev. In the early 60's, Beer-
sheva was nothing more than a Bedouin trading
post; it is now the fourth largest city in Israel. I
was able to see again how barren and arid desert
had been transformed into productive, agricultur-
al soil. If what has been done here could be done
in other parts of the world, what benefits would
derive to underdeveloped nations, especially in
alleviating world hunger.
While in Beersheva, we visited the Ben Gurion
University, the youngest and among the most in-
novative of Israel's universities. Ben Gurion U.
concentrates its efforts in several areas. Most
interesting to me were agriculture, irrigation and
health care. The medical school provides com-
plete modern medical care to the large Bedouin
community of the Negev, a community which
prior to 1970 received almost none, hi discussion
with students and faculty, I learned another im-
portant facet of Israeli life everyone who serves
on the faculty teaches and everyone who teaches
serves. The social and economic implications of
this to me were staggering. This means that each
Israeli citizen, male and female, after completing
mandatory military' service, spends an average
one month a year on active military duty.
Gene and I examined other divisions of the Uni-
versity where applied research for specific prob-
lems is being performed. As a member of the
Senate Committee on Agriculture and as senator
from Florida, where agriculture is a major in-
dustry, the projects that centered on special uses
and conservation of water, new agricultural ap-
proaches and the unorthodox use of presently
: grown crops were of special interest to me. We
visited four desert settlements where brackish
water, never before used in agriculture, is now
being used to grow cotton, corn and wheat. I dis-
cussed the possible applications of this method of
agriculture for use in Florida. It seems to me that,
if brackish warm water could be used in our state,
we might be able to avoid the problems of un-
timely freezes and resulting crop loss. I have
asked Dr. Pasternak to provide additional in-
formation and to testify before the Senate Com-
mittee on Agriculture on these innovative
I was excited to meet with Dr. Mizrachi, who ex-
plained how his genetic research on tomatoes has
produced a commercially acceptable product with
a six week shelf life. I asked if this could be
feasibly done in Florida where tomato farming is
an important part of our agriculture industry. He
thought that his research could be useful in Flor-
ida and agreed to testify before the Senate on this
subject. I feel that, with the possible benefits to
residents and farmers in Florida, this is well
worth looking into. Because ot Florida's water
problems, especially shortages, I was extremely
interested in the Israeli system of drip irrigation
presently being used in the Negev to grow fruits
and vegetables. Their moisturized hot houses
allow for the inexpensive growth of large varieties
with very little usage of water and with extremely
high yield per acre. This is another area having
important implications for Florida and will be
carefully followed.
Of interest for Florida also were projects of de-
salinization, the use of salt water for commercial
growth of ornamental plants, and techniques for
energy production from solar resources. I was
amazed to learn that there were joint projects be-
tween Ben Gurion University and Egyptian
academic centers that are already benefitting the
populations of North Africa. One of these in-
volves research on animal health care at the Isan
Center for Comparative Medicine, the veterinary
center at the university, dedicated by Floridians,
Barbara and Jerry Isan. Before leaving the Uni-
versity, I had lunch with President Shlomo Gazit,
the former head of Israeli intelligence and Vice
President Israel Ben Amitai. former chief of Is-
raeli artillery. We discussed the strategic impor-
tance ot the Negev and the Sinai. They explained
to me the strategic and economic sacrifice Israel
had made by returning to Egypt the Sinai with its
important military bases and its large oil supply
- at a cost to Israel of over eight billion dollars!
They felt that Prime Minister Begin was offering
everything possible for the sake of peace. I sug-
gested that the military bases in the Sinai, the

ADifferent Perspective
Cn Ifie Isi ii II Attack
" It seems to me that there is a terrible sense of
unreality about the outcry over Israel's
attack on the Iraqi nuclear facility at Tuwa-
itha. Rarely does a commentator mention the
explicit threat made by Saddam Hussein, the
President of Iraq, to use weapons supplied
by this reactor against Israel. Rarely does
anyone mention the destabilizing effect a
nuclear weapon would have in the hands of
Hussein, or any of a number of other Mideast
Looked at realistically, the Israeli attack has
to be seen as stabilizing not upsetting. It is
ironic that those who call for having all
nuclear weapons destroyed should object to
the destruction of this nuclear device,
potentially in the possession of someone
engaged in a holy war of elimination against
the people of Israel.
But, of course, Mr. President, the Israeli
attack is not viewed realistically. It is viewed
through the prism of the United Nations, an
organization which sometimes appears de-
dicated to clouding the real world in a fog of
rhetorical confusion. The United Nations is,
to put it mildly, irresponsible. It has no real
constituency, no economic base, no founding
in the real world. It is largely a paper organi-
zation, and so it can engage in a paper battle.
Nations such as Israel can pay some at-
tention to the U.N. so long as it does not
threaten Israel's real interests. The United
States is the same way. The only difference
seems to me to be that Israel has a clearer
sense of its own interests than the United
States has demonstrated in recent years."

for an American military presence to that
strategic part of the world, the Persian Gulf area.
On our return to Tel Aviv, we visited one of the
many ORT centers in Israel, heavily supported by
many friends in Florida. These centers help peo-
ple to help themselves by education and training
which make them productive and self-respecting
members of society. ORT has a well-respected
system of education including technical and voca-
tional high schools, technical colleges, appren-
ticeship centers and factory schools where revolu-
tionary techniques have created one of the most
successful programs in Israel.
Our final evening in Israel, we enjoyed a magnifi-
cent concert conducted by Leonard Bernstein at
t. m


the Mann Auditorium. As we listened to the
beautiful music of the Israeli Philharmonic we
were struck with the stark realization that this
concert was dedicated to a young, internationally
renowned flutist whose career was interrupted to
fight in the Yom Kippur War. His death was the
result. I was moved by the spirit of the Israelis, as
represented by this young hero, who even at time
of greatest peril, have never failed to remember
the importance of the quality of life and cultural

and their equivalents elsewhere
in the west entirely to blame. The
roots of this cancer began with
the permissiveness of post-World
War II and the phony Freudian-
ism of the doctrine of equality
between children and their
parents. And it later extended
into the schools, with the equally
phony Deweyism of the doctrine
of equality between students and
their teachers.
These doctrines were, and still
are, rooted in the notion that the
old dictums defining the status
and the privileges characteristic
of the generations are outmoted
excuses to repress the energies of
the young and that the re-
pressions ihey suffer in the name
of these dictums are deliberately
designed to rob them of their
youth, leaving them frustrated
and neurotic later in their lives as
adulls, leaving them prisoners of
a bourgeois social order that
beats I hem into passive sub-
missiveness at the hands of cor-
porate slavery rather than to
freedom and personal self-ex-
Worst of all, the old dictums
defining the status and the pri-
vileges of the generations is un-
democratic. Or so the reasoning
of these corruptions of the
philosophies of two important
20th Century thinkers goes.
There is no doubt that the
post-World War II period saw a
lot of genuine youthful rebellion,
rebellion rooted in political and
social unrest, notably among the
French under the leadership of
Henri Cohn-Bendit and among
the Germans under Red Rudi
Outschke. Hardly did this re-
belliousness die down in Europe,
when it reappeared in America
during the Vietnam era, only to
be murdered on the campus of
Kent Stale
BUT LARGELY, the legacy of
that era has since focused on a lot
of myths about the young. And
about the old. The young have
gone about the business of en-
trenching themselves in a culture
of hedonistic nihilism best ex-
emplified by a beer company
commercial's rationale that "you
only go around once" and a soft
drink's film footage exhorting the
cadaverous corps of Vic Tanny-
isni to join the vanguard elite of
the "Pepsi Generation."
What thislhad done is to leave
the young with no intellectual re-
sources to change course mid-
stream when the hedonism and
the nihilism lose their compelling
attractiveness when it be-
comes their turn to be incar-
cerated in a concentration camp
because they have now reached
the talisman age of 25 and must
be exterminated. When the
weight of years kicks them out of
the "Pepsi Generation," and the
doors of the nearest slimnastics
emporium slam in their faces.
As for the old, they have
contented themselves to wring
their hands before this messianic
mythology of the young and to be
victimized by it. Or else, to
preach and warn of coming social
Armageddons that the new
mythology will surely bring.
THERE IS perhaps no point
now in observing that the young
plunderers of Britain are not
really protesting their economic
plight of political and social
alienation from the mainstream.
What is more important is to
recognize that their plunder is yet
another form of hedonism and
nihilism essentially no different
from our own sense of helpless-
ness in the face of vast global
forces that are depressing our
lives and over which we have no
more control than the young.
In lashing out at their elders,
the young may think that they
are attacking the source of their
despair. But that self-deception
comes simply from the fact that
their hedonism has helped make
them so poorly-educated.
IF THEY can not understand
that young and old these days are
in the same boat, we must not

contribute to their further folly
by ill-conceived conclusions that
their violence is pre-revo-
lutionary. It is not; it is mere
If their elders are not violent
also in response to these very
same pressures, it is simply the
wisdom of age that tells them it is
useless. Besides, the ultimate
beauty of age is contemplation,
which abhors violence. The ul-
timate beauty of youth is phy-
sical beauty itself, which is
transitory and leads to a sense of
having been betrayed once it is
gone. And to a need for
vengeance against the estab-
lished order that assured them in
the first place that it would never
be gone.
None of either of these condi-
tions, not youth nor age, has a
blessed thing to do with the
social condition, but only with
the human condition. That we
think in terms of the social con-
dition against which all of us
rebel rather than the human con-
dition which only few of us ever
come to understand is the
greatest myth of all about young
and old alike.
