Repression of Jews in USSR confirmed
Almost coincidentally with the release of a U.S. State
[Department document detailing the Soviet Union's
forced labor practices, came reports of Soviet
Emigration authorities biting restrictions on granting
xit permits to Jews seeking to leave the USSR.
The Soviets, suddenly and without explanation,
Recording to sources with close ties to the situation,
lid exit permits were being issued "in the thousands."
The sudden change in policy comes after only 123
[lews were permitted to leave in February, just a few
ore than the January total of 81, the lowest monthly
lotal in many years. The 1982 total of Soviet Jewish
eparturt-s was 2,688 far below the 51,000 who left in
[979. The U.S. government has estimated that as many
is 300.000 Soviet Jews currently possess letters of
nvitation necessary for application to emigrate and the
[lumber of "refuseniks," those denied exit permits, runs
lit the thousands.
The Slate Department's 24-page report had an in-
troduction noting that the "vast Soviet forced labor
ystem is distinguished by its large scale and the
Larshmss by which it operates to threaten and punish
those who are convicted of Soviet law, including those
who attempt to assert freedom of speech, assembly or
It added that "enforcement of the law is carried out
with special severity against the Soviet Jewry com-
munity. Alone among the recognized religious groups
in the USSR, Soviet Jews have no functioning
seminary for the training of clergy, no national
organization, and no approved ties with co-religionists
The report describes the Soviet Union's miserable
record last year in complying with basic human rights. ,
"The mistreatment," according to the report, "of
prisoners continues in terms of inadequate food,
clothing, and shelter, and threats against their families.
"The Soviet government continues to confine some
dissidents to special psychiatric hospitals and to
psychiatric wards in general hospitals, where they are
subjected to a variety of cruel and degrading treat-
ments, including those of powerful and painful drugs."
Jews seem to suffer most, the State Department
The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Jeane Kirkpatrick,
took part in the third international conference on Soviet
Jewry in Jerusalem last month, an indication of the
continuing interest of the Reagan administration on the
issue of Soviet Jewry.
Wolf Blizter, Washington correspondent, reporting
in The Jewish Week, noted that Secretary of State
George Shultz and other senior U.S. officials are known
to have raised the matter during virtually every im-
portant meeting they have had with their Soviet
Shultz, in particular, Blitzer reported, is quite
sensitive to and knowledgeable about the problem.
During his years at the Bechtel Corp. in San Francisco
he used to go out of his way to hue Soviet Jewish
engineers. Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union
has dropped to its lowest levels since 1970. Some
sources believe that a dramatic way of calling the
worlds attention to the problem with persistent, loud
and organized effort might get the Soviets to ease their
emigration policies.

ewsmen who interviewed Moshe
^rens. Excerpts are presented
In the course of the auestion-
Arens recalled that "there
were Israeli settlements in Judea
and Samaria (the West Bank)
prior to the Jordanian invasion of
1948. (That's) when Jordan,
Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon
tried to put an end to the Jewish
state. They at that time de-
stroyed all the Jewish settle-
ments in Judea and Samaria.
They killed most of the people.
They expelled all the rest, includ-
ing, by the way, the destruction
of the Jewish border of the Old
City, and they then pursued a
policy for,, a period of 19 years
(until the 1967 Six-Bay War)
where no person who was Jewish
was allowed to live in the area.
That is still the case, by the way,
in Jordan. That's one of the few
countries in the world where no
Jews live.
Moshe Arens
"You cannot expect, and I
think it is not fair and not proper,
to expect the Israeli government
at the present time to pursue that
policy of Jordan, that if a person
is Jewish, he not be allowed to
live or settle in Judea or
No obstacle to Peace
Declaring that the settlements
on the West Bank are not an ob-
stacle to peace, Arens said: "I
must say that I simply cannot
agree with President Reagan's
view. I would remind the Presi-
dent of the United States, that
for 19 years under Jordanian rule
in Judea and Samaria, when they
had destroyed all the Jewish set-
tlements, there were no settle-
ments there at all.
"They (Jordan) ran the area;
there was no peace. King Hussein
did not come forward to discuss
peace. Quite the contrary. In
1967, it was from that area he
attacked Israel, together with
Nasser in Egypt. Thereafter, he
did not come forward to discuss
peace. He did not join the Camp
David agreement when he was
invited to do so. All this in a
period when there was no signifi-
cant settlement in the area. So, I
think if you just look at history
and you appreciate the facts, you
cannot come to the conclusion
that this is an obstacle to peace.

Norman Uitlar of Deerfield Beach, a survivor
who was among those liberated from Bergen-
Belsen by American troops, made travel arrange-
ments for the arouo as a member of the Holocaust
Survivors Social Club of South Florida. He and
the others at the first national mass-get-together
of survivors in America will share experiences,
will seek information on long-missing relatives
and friends, and take part in a historic com-
memoration of Jewish spiritual and armed resis-
tance against Nazi Germany.
This gathering, from April 11 through Thurs-
day, April 14, is comparable though on a
smaller scale to the first World Gathering of
Jewish Holocaust Survivors held in Jerusalem in
Benjamin Meed, president of the American
Gathering committee, who was in South Florida
recently to talk about the plane, said the
Gathering inrhid an expression of gratitude to
the people and government of the United States,
and an act of upholding the legacy of the Sur-
vivors proclaimed in Jerusalem for all eternity.
Top officials of the Reagan administration.
Congress, the Embassies of Israel and Canada,
and representatives of Yad Vashem, the Jeru-
salem memorial to the Six Million Martyrs, are
expected to participate in the various assemblies
and ceremonies.
Meed has said: "We are educating the world
about the past to protect the future. Our Yom

commitment to remembrance of the past and
faith in the future (see related Holocaust

In Washington, there will be outdoor assem-
blies at the Capitol, the White House, and Lincoln
Memorial, as well as a ceremony at Arlington
Cemetery to pay tribute to American soldiers who
fought the Nazis and liberated the death camps.
Holocaust memorabilia will be presented for
the archives of the U.S. Holocaust Commission.
The archives will be established in the U.S. Holo-
caust Memorial Museum to be built on a site to be
dedicated during the weak.

claimed at Jerusalem during the World Gather-
A scroll, to be signed by the survivors partici-
pating in the American Gathering, will be

came into formal being on the ashes of the six
million Jewish men, women and children who
perished during the Holocaust.

> the Israeli occupation of
ebanon is over. He had ra-
sed for months to say
hat action he intended to
ke about the deliveries of
those planes.
He was quoted as say-
ing: "While those (Israeli)

Shultz, initiated by Rep. Ben-
jamin A. Gilman (R., N.Y.) and
Gus Yatron (D.. Pa.), urging the
Administration to deliver
promised F-16s to Israel.
They contend that Adminis-
tration failure to issue a final
notification of the sale "leaves
the impression of imposing sanc-
tions against Israel, detracts
from U.S. security interests and
increases the ultimate economic
burden on Israel as plane costs
Questions were also raised dur-
ing hearings held by the House
Foreign Affairs Committee. Rep.
Dante Fascell ID., Fla) asked
Shultz about the status of the de-
livery, stating that "the delay
. could easily call into question
our commitment to Israel's
qualitative and quantitative
ledge)." Shultz replied that the
notification "is under considera-
tion by the President."
When Fascell posed a similar
question to Secretary of Defense
Weinberger during a subsequent
hearing, Weinberger had a dif-
ferent response. He said the F-
16s "have been on hold since
Muy. and the problem is to deter-
mine whether there had been a
violation of the law." (He was re-
ferring to the Arms Export Con-
trol act which specifies that such
arms sales are to be for self-de-
' fensc purposes only.)

Third World Nations Aligned Selves Behind Bimdnm
The leaders of the 101 Third World na-
tions and organizations who compose the
so-called non-aligned movement met the
other week in New Delhi. They have a habit
of blaming the world's problems on every-
thing but themselves, viewing the world
through blinders and seeing nothing of the
chaos around them. They argue that the ills
of the world are a result of "Yankee im-
perialism" and "Zionist aggression," and
because of this, their respective
"revolutionary movements" have not
succeeded in bringing prosperity and good
fortune to the masses. The hollowness and
even stupidity of these accusations was
best exemplified by Fidel Castro, principal
stooge of the Soviet Union and immediate
past chairman of the non-aligned group,
and Indira Gandhi, leader of the India host
During a two-hour tirade, the United
States was accused by Castro of plotting to
assassinate him, of encouraging "execrable
adventurism" by Israel in Lebanon, of "aid
and abetment" of South African domina-
tion of Namibia, of aggression against
Libya, of "genocide" in Central America, of
military expansionism in the Indian Ocean,
of "irresponsibly" imposing high interest
rates on the world market.
The Third World nations seemed either
not to care or else maintained a short
memory of the actions of its members:
Syria's crackdown in the town of Hamma
with uncompromising military force, death
toll in that carnage, some 20,000; the con-
tinuation of the Iran-Iraqi war, which
further exacerbates the tensions in the
Persian Gulf and which is taking thousands
of lives; and no one at the Summit meeting
had a word of concern about the violence in
India's northeastern state of Assam where,
while the meeting was being held, reports
said up to 2,700 people had been killed in a
month of ethnic violence.
Neither was there mention of the martial
law crackdown in Poland that has so easily
slipped from view of the leaders who claim
to represent the workers. No mention of the
continued occupation by some 100,000
troops of the Soviet Union in the once sov-
ereign nation of Afghanistan. No mention
of anything related to means by which to
cooperate with one another and relieve the
oppression of people of the Third World na-
A true appraisal of the conference of the
Third World nations and their revolution-
ary movements might conclude that they
have done little more than lead their people
down the path of suffering and chaos with
little hope in sight for an entrance into the
20th Century, and only 17 years left to
accomplish that.
Indian Surprise
Whatever old adage you can think of
ibout politics that they make strange
bedfellows, that they are simply politics
applies at this point. Having just said what
must be saiJ about the Third World
conference, we must deal with a report
which comes now from London.
In that ancient city, The Observer tells
us that there are secret goings on between
the governments of India and Israel.
Really? But Indira Gandhi, in her
welcoming address to the conference, took
out after Israel and Zionism as the ultimate
bete noir of the planet Earth.
Not to worry. In matters of the
production of atomic bombs, politics make
strange bedfellows, etc. India, fearful that
Pakistan is making one of its own bombs, is
now playing footsie with the Israelis
sounding them out about maybe pulling
another lightening reactor attack in
Pakistan similar to the one they pulled wv
back when in Baghdad.
Observes the observer: The Indian
government is prepared to assist Israel if it
decides that the Pakistani reactor must go
In the Third World, at least the Zionists are
good for something. But what we wonder is
what the Gandhi forces mean by "assist" in
a search-and-kill operation against a Third
World colleague.

Number 14
Reagan appears in tails, suitably,
at the tail-end of a conga line. He
dons props composed of serape
and two-foot-wide sombrero and
sings a ditty to the thrilled
Site of all of this gaiety is the
98th annual dinner of the
Gridiron Club in Washington last
week. Reagan, a third-rate actor
in his heyday, can't resist the
third-rate scenario.
AT A TIME when the govern
ment is scratching for every pos-
sible penny, except of course in
the garden of the makers of war
machines, one is appalled by the
President's lavish lifestyle and,
even more, by speculation about
the salary of the unidentified
federal employee or employees
who were paid with taxpayers'
money to devote time to writing
the clever witticisms that Mr.
Reagan mouthed at the Gridiron
shindig. Certainly, they weren't
his own witticisms. For example:
"You ask me if I'll run again,
Well I'll reveal tonight. I've got a
big announcement that I he!
> u'd love to write, When even
thing recovers and the country's
on the go. I'll come out on the
White HoUM lawn and tell you
yea or no."
Imagine the creativity here.
Consider the effort that went into
the President's memorizing these
lines. Surely, it must be worth
whatever it cost And in contrast,
to be sure, there is dour, old Yuri
Andropov who is these days in a
power struggle with the Krem
lin's No. 2 bossman, Konstantin
Chernenko, reportedly Leonid
Brezhnev's personal choice ol
successor to the fount of Soviet
power, who has yet to make it as
No. 1.
Dour, old Andropov, futher-
more, is ill with kidney and heart
disabilities. Maybe that is why he
has been so cranky in his re-
sponse to President Reagan's
out-of-space speech last week
the one before this surprise ap-
pearance at the Gridiron fes-
tivity, the one about meeting the
Soviet nuclear threat with a cost-
ly anti-ballistic missile system by
the next century.
THE BUCK Rogers one of
course the one that would
employ lasers and microwave de-
vices to explode incoming, hostile
nuclear weapons in flight well
before they reach their target.
If Andropov weren't so cranky
and so sick, he would lake it all
with good cheer instead of con-
cluding that the President's aim
to get the drop on the Soviet
Union's military superiority con-
travenes every jot and tittle of
the already existing arms control
agreements between our two
countries Maybe. If Andropov
could only have been at the
(iridiron thing, he would under-
stand that Ron means no true
offense. Not a man in tails and
scrape and sombrero. Maybe.
Anyway, isn't it much more
fun to have a leader who ap-
pears at the tail-end of a conga
line in tails and serape and som-
brero singing. Yes. I often quote
the I/>rd, Cause how would I
scare the Commies just quoting
Jerry Ford?" A man who can
sing "Manana" is worth his
weight in Plutonium.
CERTAINLY, he's a lot more
fun than dour, old Andropov.
And if you don't think so, then
Mr. Reagan ought to segue into a
scary song just for you. Maybe.
After all. in these matters. Mr.
Reagan has a singleminded pur-
pose. He will defeat the root of all
evil that lies in the Soviet Union
no matter what. Never mind the
root of any evil that lies in the
United States.
In this, the President will not
be swayed. In one secret tele-

Charles Allen, Jr. is the author of 'Nazi War Criminals
Among Us,' which provides detailed information about
38 known and suspected war criminals.
As early as 1946, reports on
"21 neo-Nazi subversive" groups
referring to both Barbie and
Skorzeny were circulating widely
in American intelligence depart-
Actually, escape, aid and con-
tinuing fascist subversion were
planned by hard-core Nazi mili-
tarists and SS leaders even before
the war ended. An elaborate net-
work of SS, gestapo, SD, Luft-
waffe and GFPs (Geheime Feld
Polizei Secret Field Police) of
the Wehrmacht had been planned
for a vast Bruederschaft or
Kameradenwerke (Brotherhood).
THEIR CODE names includ-
ed: Danube, Sky lack. Lock
Gates, Green Devils, HIAG
(Mutual Aid Society of the
Waffen SS). ODESSA (Orga-
nization der Entlassene SS
Angehoerige Organization of
Kin of the SS), and Die Spinne
(The Spider).
Their first object was to rescue
and help to escape SS, SA,
gestapo and Einsatzgruppen
personnel who were all under the
automatic arrest category of the
Allies who presumably were in-
tent on tracking down Nazi war
For example, an OMGUS
(Office of Military Government
for Germany U.S.) "Secret"
memorandum dated Feb. 1, 1947
stated that the "Quadripartite
Intelligence Committee'" (com-
posed of the" French, British,
She Sings
'Am Yisroel Chai'
Soviet and American victors)
needed information on ODESSA.
THE 1947 SECRET report
said, however, that the Allied
combined intelligence group had
been shown only "restricted"
materials on ODESSA and de-
nied "the (higher classified) re-
mainder of the document ... on
that and other subversive orga-
nizations uncovered by U.S.
intelligence authorities."
ODESSA was described as
"active in uniting all SS into a
nationwide resistance orga-
nization" seeking the rescue of
imprisoned SS leaders. Among
the names mentioned in this
hidden assessment and on sub-
sequent documents were Barbie
and Skorzeny, both in the cus-
tody of the United States.
The most effective group was
Die Spinne. The other organiza-
tions faded from the scene by the
late 1940s. Die Spinne was opera-
tional in getting Nazi war crimi-
nals out of Europe until the late
1950s, and some observers con-
tend that it was operational
beyond that date up until today.
DIE SPINNE was conceived
in the Darmstadt prison for high-
ranking SS officers and control-
led by the United States. Its
creator was Lt. Col (Obersturm-
bannfuehrer) Otto "Scarface"
Skorzeny (SS No. 272,375. Nazi
Party card No. 1,083,671), who
was in the prison at the time
awaiting trial on war crimes
charges. The imposing 6'4" Aus-
trian Nazi who gained fame as
the daring rescuer of the italian
dictator Benito Mussolini, off a
mountain shelf in Italy in 1943
was Adolf Hitler's favorite ter-
He had carried out innumer-
able terrorist bombings, kidnap-
pings, hijackings, sabotage and
evasion commando acts as well as
selective political assassinations.
Skorzeny led a group of SS
killers in a parachute drop behind
\merican lines during the Battle
of the Bulge. In violation of all
i he rules of warfare. Skorzeny's

The most popular person in Israel
today is probably 24-year-okl Ofra Haza,
who won the first prize among 13 contes-

Of Yemenite origin, Ofra Haza was
born in the poor Hatikvah Quarter of Tel

Israel in 1920, and she is the youngest

SHE TOOK up theater and music in a local
workshop at the age of 12 and joined the army
after completing high school, preferring to serve
in the armored corps rather than in an entertain-
ment troupe.
Renewing her singing career, she rapidly shot
to the top, and by her early twenties had become
one of the idols of her generation. Ofrs's song,
"Israel Lives," has an optimistic tenor and in-
cludes the lines: "Listen my brother, I am still
alive. And my two eyes turn to the light."
HER STRIKING voice and beautiful dark ap-
pearance combined with the catchy tune and the
simple but sincere words all these made Ofra
Haza a natural winner in the National Song Fes-
tival. Two Israeli representatives won past Euro-
vision Song Contests Yizhar Cohen and Gali

Whether Ofra Haza wins the competition or
not, she has won the hearts of Israelis and today
enjoys an almost unprecedente -Hilarity.

JWB Grcle Theme:
JCC's Deal With Jewish Family Life Education
NEW YORK, N.Y. "Today,
when family cohesiveness is
threatened as never before in a
mobile civilization, Msssl divorce
is up and the one-parent family
has become commonplace, family
members of all ages have a real
need to discover the Jewish
values that have sustained us as
a people."
So states an excerpt from the
introduction to JWB Circle's
special theme section, "At the
Jewish Community Center:
Family Life Education." in the
Winter, 1983 edition just off the
The theme section poses three
vital questions:
1) How does the Jewish Com-
munity Center today help the
education of the Jewish family?
2) What role does it (the JCC
and YM-YWHA) play in
strengthening Jewish conscious-
ness among family members?
3) What programs have proved
effective in deepening Jewish
awareness and bolstering Jewish
family life? --
What follows are answers
answers provided in six pithy re-
ports from Center two from
New York and Columbus, Ohio,
and one each from Tenafly, N.J.,
and Boston.

ister Yuval Ne'eman, who chaired the founding meeting of
the Israel Space Agency, said the groundwork was being
laid to launch an Israeli space satellite "within ten years
or so."
He said the Israeli satellite, for communications or
weather forecasting, would have to be launched in co-
operation with either the American NASA or the Euro-
pean Space Agency. In the meantime, Ne'eman said, the
Israel Space Agency would be laying the groundwork for

counts of life's traumatic cross-
roads "Dealing With Death

From the JCC on the Palisades
(Tenafly, N.J.I. JWB Circle
readers learn that workshops
"Exercises in Jewish Awareness"
have served as a catalyst to
bring Jewish residents of all ages
together to discuss common
problems and concerns.
From the South Area branch
of the JCC in Greater Boston
comes a narrative of Yiddishkeit,
a report on Jewish family life as
enriched by children through the
"Let's Celebrate" program.
South Area's "Let's Cele-
brate" creates a real understand-
ing of the Jewish holidays and
the part they play in developing
warm family feelings and a sense
of seasonal joys and memories.
"The simple act of learning
how to make jelly doughnuts
(sufganiot) for Hanukkah and the
more complex one of assembling
a Haggadah that has special
meanings for a specific family,"
JWB Circle's theme states, "are
among the ways parents are
learning how to inspire a life of
Judaism in their families through
our' Let's Celebrate'program."
Also featured in the current
JWB Circle is "Israeli Teens Go
for JCC Youth," an account of
American JCC youth making fast
friends among teen counterparts
in Israel, and "JCC Mural: Labor
of Love," senior adult painting
project with nostalgic and his-
toric value in Baltimore.
JWB Circle is a bimonthly
magazine which serves both as
the voice of JWB, the central ad-

Jews Must Revise View of West Bank
, went Bank Story. By Rafik
"Halabi. New York: Harcourt
Brace Jovanovich, 1982. 304
Jtwish Floridian Book Editor
Although the Middle Eastern
I Bsues are currently fixed on Leb-
liDon and its problems, this is a
fleeting focus. Sooner or later, all
I foreign troops will leave Leb-
lanon. While that action will not
Ijolve Lebanon's long-standing
I problems, it will remove Lebanon
I from the center of attention.
That center will then shift
I vigorously to the West Bank or,
I if you prefer, to Judea and
I Samaria. Which name you use for
Ithe territory lying between Israel
land the Jordan River indicates
I your point of view about this
I land.
IT IS NO accident, therefore,
[that the author of this book calls
lit "The West Bank Story," not
T'The Story of Judea and
Samaria." He does not even
choose to include Samaria in his
lindex, even though he occasion-
lally writes about Judea and
| Samaria.
So we knew his point of view
before opening the book, but this
Ishould not prevent us from doing
Iso. Rather, it should compel us to
read the book in order to get an
angle which is ordinarily blocked
| from our vision.
Even though the Palestinians
ave succeeded through terror
nd propaganda in bringing their
aggie to world attention, there
Israelis and American Jews
who still insist on sweeping them
under the rug.
THAT ACT of denying reality
is not possible after reading this
book. The author is an Israeli
Arab who works for TV Israel as
a newsbroadcaater. Unlike other
Israeli Arabs, as a Druse, he
served in the Army, rising to of-
ficer rank. He also attended He-
brew University. After the Six-
Day War, he worked for Teddy
Kollek, the mayor of Jerusalem,
in his Office for East Jerusalem
Halabi was back in the Army
for Yom Kippur War and, then, a
year later, in 1974, he went to
work for Israel Television with
special responsibility for report-
ing on Arab affairs and the oc-
cupied territories. He has a
tangled identity as an Arab, a
Druse, an Israeli and a Pales-
He is certainly not responsible
for the accident of birth into this
snare of discordant selves. His
successful resolution of inevitable
internal conflicts shines through
the complicated tale he tells. And
he tells it well.
to be fair to all sides, emerging as
a person of integrity. He hopes
that all sides can be reconciled
just as he has reconciled the
embattled selves within himself.
However, the story he recounts is
one of missed opportunities and
deteriorating relationships.
In the early days after the Six-
Day War, we often heard about
the benign army of occupation
which was governing the lib-
erated territories. Those days
were short-lived. Cycles of terror-
ism, punishment and repression
have alienated the Palestinian
Arabs and solidified them behind
To talk about a Palestinian
homeland is no longer taboo. The
development of this possibility is
traced by Halabi in considerable
but never dull detail. We cannot
ignore his conclusion that "no
matter who calls the shots these
days, the PLO comes out ahead."
HIS FINAL chapter calls for
and is called "A Return to
Sanity." He points out that his
fellow-Israelis are failing to
understand what is happening in
the territories and that this fail-
ure is "leading us deeper into a
morass that can only be to our
continuing detriment."
But he expressed a hope, to
which one can only say a fervent
amen, that "our children may
value peace over the illusion of
possession and may learn the
secret of sharing without losing. I
hope so for their sakes. I hope so
for ours. And I hope it doesn't
take too much longer."
By all means, read this book. It
will make you a wiser and more
sober participant in discussions
about the Middle East.

Maxwell House'Coffee
Is After Shopping Relaxation.
Shopping for a "good buy" has be-
come one of Americas favorite pas-
times. It's always fun to find new
things, see the new fashions and
perhaps pick up something new for
the house or family.
Another favorite pastime a to come
home from shopping, kick off the
shoes and relax with a good cup of
coffee. Maxwell House* Coffee. The
full-pleasant aroma and great-
tasting, satisfying flavor is
the perfect ending
to a busy shop-
ping day. Espe-
cially when
relaxing with

a dose friend. The good talk. The
good feelings. The warmth are some
of the things that go along with
Maxwell House* Perhaps that's why
many Jewish housewives don't 'shop'
for Maxwell House They simply
buy it. It's the "smart buy" as any
balabusta knows!
So, no matter what your prefer-
enceinstant or ground when
you pour Maxwell House? you pour
relaxation. At its best.. .consis-
tently cup after cup after cup.
A living tradition in Jewish homes for over half a century.

In last Sunday's report, aimed at poisoning

Allegations Denied UJA
Funds Establish Settlements
fly Detroit Jewish News
tions, in a Detroit Free
Press article from Wash-
ington by James McCart-
ney, that United Jewish
Appeal funds are used by
Israel for the establishment
of settlements in Judea and
Samaria, commonly refer-
red to as the West Bank,
were disputed here in a
statement by Max M.
Fisher, chairman of the
Board of Governors of the
Jewish Agency.
In the lengthy McCartney
article in the Free Press, the
statement is made, among other
comments, that "the settlements
probably would not exist without
these indirect U.S. subsidies,
which involve both public money
and tax deductible private
was headlined. "U.S. Funds
Help Israel Build More Settle-
ments." It claimed that indirect
U.S. subsidies to Israel total SI .5
billion over the last decade.
McCartney did not establish a
direct link between the U.S.
funds and the settlements, but
says the settlements are opposed
by U.S. policy. He uses unnamed
"Mideast experts within and out-
side the government" for his
source for the dollar amounts.
McCartney asserted that U.S.
foreign aid for Israel's economy
frees Israeli money for the settle-
ments. He also stated, "Private
contributors, whose donations fi-
nance the Jewish Agency and
other Zionist organizations, get
tax benefits. The organizations
in turn finance the settlements."
In a letter addressed to Free
Press Editor David Lawrence,
Fisher took exception to the
McCartney statements and de-

from the territories administered
by Israel since the 1967 war.
Philanthropic contributions are
used for social welfare and educa-
tional purposes by the Jewish

for Israel is the instrument of the
Jewish community outside of Is-
rael to aid in meeting social wel-

people of Israel that are not met
by the government.

BB sponsors 85 community demonstrations for Soviet Jewry
JERUSALEM Jews in the
Soviet Union are "not alone and
not forgotten." the president of

members of the World Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry in its

communities around the globe,
actions are now being taken to
sensitize the public to the plight
of Soviet Jews and to extend the
bond of humanity to them."
The activities, organized by
B'nai B'rith in cooperation with
other Jewish and non-Jewish
groups, ran the gamut from dem-
onstrations and teach-ins to can-
dlelight ceremonies and balloon

Tzili Kraus is a dull-witted
child born last to a poor but up-
wardly striving family some-
where in pre-war middle-Europe.
While her bright siblings study
madly, she grows up "neglected
among the abandoned objects in
the yard." Yet, when the destruc-
tion comes, it is Tzili alone who
survives, hiding in a shed.
Tzili wanders in the woods. In
a stroke of instinctive genius she
tells the goyim that she is the
daughter of "Maria," an in-

At war's end, Tzili finds herself

hastens to show us, whose moral

the wing of a "fat woman,"

is a small, gnome-like boy who
packs a violin beneath his filthy
jacket. In return he makes music
of unearthly beauty rise from be-
neath his bow. It touches even
the camp guards, who allow the
boy to roam freely.
Given the blackness of the
death camp milieu, it is astonish-
ing that the author does not allow
his characters to become the
walking dead. They still think,
feel, and talk with fervent inten-
sity. The one major question
about this fine book, in fact, is
whether so much in the human
equation could survive in a realm
where humanity is ruthlessly
stripped away.
Though both of these strong
novels have at their center a Jew-
ish child wandering alone in
Holocaust times, it is striking
how different they are in outlook.
Appelfeld has nothing good to
say about middle-class European
Jewry on the eve of its destruc-

remnant of these same people
lovingly to life. Perhaps Appel

,ait trial on other wartime
d charges against him by
Allies. He escaped from
prison in 1948 and subsequently
wound up in Spain.
At the same time, Barbie, from
the same SS detention pens at
Darmstadt, was released for
secret utilization by the Ameri-
can CIC. Years later in published
interviews, Skorzeny detailed
how both the CIC and the CIA
had "arranged" for his escape.
He further claimed that he had
already been recruited by U.S.
intelligence while undergoing his
trial as a war criminal.
Once on the outside, Skorzeny
galvanized Die Spinne. He boast-
ed that his group with the as-
sistance of American intelligence
and West German industrialists
and bankers "rescued" more
than 500 wanted Nazi criminals,
among them Barbie.
BARBIE ALSO enjoyed the
assistance of the CIC, the
Vatican and the International

Once in Spain in late 1950 or
early 1951, Barbie reported to his
commanding officer, Skorzeny, at
the offices of the latter's "consul-

well-known Nazis as financier

Before leaving for Latin Amer-
ica, Barbie was given his orders
to contact key Nazi war criminals
in high and low places and was
directed by Die Spinne to con-
tribute to the Western hemis-
phere "beach-heads" of fascist
"force" and "influence spheres"
as was stated in "The Madrid
Letter," a Spinne underground
publication in early 1951.
A disciplined Gestapo officer
and a fanatic Nazi, Barbie, who
was also at the center of drugs,

Middle East. I 'd say the basis for
an attempt to make any kind of
prediction, of course, is looking at
the past. And I think if you look
at the past, at the 35 years of Is-
rael's existence, you can't help
but be optimistic about the
future, because great progress
has been made toward accommo-
dations and toward stability in
the area.
"Thirty years of warfare,
almost 20,000 Israelis who fell in
battle in order to make the point
that the Arab world had no
military option; now that the
largest Arab country, Egypt,

Israel. There's another country
that we are negotiating peace
with at the present time, another
Arab country, namely Lebanon
... I urge optimism as I urge
patience while the meetings are
going on a few times a week in
Lebanon and Israel ... in good
spirits. And we're talking about
the possibility of Jordan coming
and joining the peace talks. So I
think we're making progress.
"I think we will continue to
make progress in the next 10
years. 1 think a prerequisite for
progress, for peace in the area, is
Jews and Arabs living together."

Judaism only persons converted
"according to halacha," religious
law as administered by Orthodox
rabbis. It was brought to the
Knesset at this time at the insis-
tence of the Agudat Israel party.
The measure was a source of
bitter dispute in Israel and
among overseas Jews for many
years. Reform and Conservative
rabbinical and lay groups in the
U.S. and elsewhere had been
urging its defeat.
The Liberal MKs who voted
with the opposition were Sarah

Simcha Ehrlich. Minister of
Tourism Avraham Sharir and
Commerce Minister Gideon Patt

hailed in a statement released in
New York by Marshall Wolke,

recognition as Jews those con-

Orthodox auspices. However, we
note with concern that the
margin of defeat was small and
that this debate on the 'Who is a
Jew' issue comes up regularly in
the Knesset. We are distressed
by these debates which politicize
the term 'halacha.' Unless they
cease, irreparable injury will be
done to the unity of the Jewish

Elizabeth's doctor, Joshua
Miller, director of Transplant
Unit at Jackson Memorial, affil-
iated with University of Miami,
and Jose Strauss, director of
Pediatric Nephrology Unit, who
had been following her condition
for years., through a series of
"tissue-typing" tests, found Mrs.
Klein and her daughter's blood
longed examinations followed.
Mrs. Klein went into Jackson
Memorial and underwent four
days of tests on blood and kid-
neys that would leave no reason-
able doubt in Dr. Miller's mind,
who would perform the trans-
plant, that Elizabeth's mother
was indeed her best shot.
Further discussion was unnec-
essary. "It was understood from
that point that my mother would
do it," Elizabeth declares. "When
the doctors found her a com-
patible donor, the decision was
made. It was taken for granted.
"And it wasn't a tough de-
cision for her," she continues.
"I'm her daughter, her only child.
It was something she knew she
had to do, wanted to do for me."
"She's scared of course,"
Elizabeth adds, "but there was
never any doubt."
"I DON'T think I'm doing
'wonderful' thing, as so many
people say," Mrs. Klein puts in.
"It's a thing any mother would
do in any circumstances.

go on and you have to say, 'I

The Kleins' complete con-
fidence in Dr. Miller and the
Jackson Memorial Transplant
Unit is evident in their optimism
and buoyed spirits.
"Dr. Miller's criteria to be met
before allowing a transplant are
very high," Mr. Klein declares.
"Hell be taking tests right up
until the last moment.
"He tells us that you can live
perfectly well with one kidney,"
he adds.
"I tell my friends," Mrs. Klein
puts in, "God gave you two kid-
neys, one to give away."
"We chose Jackson Memorial
because of Dr. Miller," says
Elizabeth. "The hospital's got a
great reputation in the South

to daughter will be the gift of life to her, as
Elizabeth puts-it, 'a second time.'

the greatest."
ELIZABETH'S confidence
stems partially from her exper-
ience on dialysis. She can't say
enough kind and grateful words
about the Pedi-Dialysis Unit
staff, who tufted an awful exper-
ience into something bearable
and even "not so bad."
"The dialysis unit really scared
me," she declares, "but the
nurses there are the best. They're
all there with words of comfort all
the time. If it weren't for them, it
would have been a terrible exper-
ience for me."
"It's really not that bad,"
Elizabeth adds. "You go through
three hours of pain, but then
you're able to walk around like a

Ireland Busting With Pride
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Public Committee for the
Promotion of Tourism, disconcerted by the fact that less than 20
percent of Western Jews have ever visited Israel, is discussing
means to remedy that situation. The Committee is part of the
Zionist Council. Addressing the committee Minister of
Tourism Avraham Sharir proposed that a Diaspora Parade be
held in Jerusalem with the participants drawn from Jewish
communities overseas-. For that purpose, the ministry is forming
a special department for the promotion of Jewish tourism to
JERUSALEM (JTA) Mordechai Ben-Porat announced
that the Falasha Jews of Ethiopia got their matzo supply from
Israel. Ben-Porat, a Minister-Without-Portfolio, did not disclose
how the matzos reached the Falashas inasmuch as Israel has no
diplomatic relations with Ethiopia.
An Israeli Falasha who recently visited Ethiopia, reported
that the condition of the Falashas there was bad and some are
actually starving. He said they appealed to their "Zionist
brethren" for help. A group of Israelis who visited some Falasha
communities earlier this year, reported last month that their
condition was no worse than that of other Ethiopians.
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Cabinet decided secretly to
convert eight military encampments on the West Bank into ::!
civilian settlements. The decision, leaked to the press, was taken x-
at a time when the United States and other countries have been g
urging a freeze on settlements on the West Bank as a step
toward bringing Jordan into negotiations for a broad peace ::
settlement in the Middle East. A settlement freeze is part of *
President Reagan's Middle East peace initiative announced last :
September 1.
(JENEVA (JTA) Salem Werfelli, a Libyan in exile, has
written a letter of thanks to the Israeli Ambassador to the
United Nations here, Ovadia Softer, for exposing the brutality of
the regime of Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi. Wefelli expressed
his appreciation for the envoy's statements during the recent
session of the UN Human Rights Commission, listing the
violations of human rights in Libya under Qadaffi. "No other
country has voiced such a protest against the barbaric practices
in wide use in Libya,' Werfelli wrote.
PARIS ( JTA) The International League Against Anti-
Semitism and Racism (LICRA) has filed suit against the French
daily l.v Monde and its former editor, Jacques Fauvet. for
alleged "incitement to racial hatred and spreading anti-
LICRA, a civil rights organization known for its strong pro-
Israel stand, charged that the paper had been guilty of these
crimes when it accepted for publication last June 17, in the first
weeks of the war in Lebanon, a paid advertisement which
contained "anti-Semitic material" and which, according to
LICRA, was likely to incite the readers to racial hatred.
Israel and Egypt will open trade talks in Cairo aimed at
resuming commercial relations frozen since Israel's invasion of
Lebanon last June. This announcement followed two days of
meetings in Is ma ilia over the disputed Taba region, the first
since Egypt suspended negotiations last summer because of the
war in Lebanon.
Although the Ismailia meeting adjourned without making
progress on the border dispute and without setting a date for the
next session, the very fact it was held indicated that a thaw in
relations between Cairo and Jerusalem was underway.

Over Local Boy Chaim Herzog
Belfast-born Chaim
Herzog, who was elected
President of Israel last
week, has become a media
hero in Ireland where his
father, the late Isaac Halevi
Herzog, served as Chief
Rabbi for many years.
Kudos were heaped on the new
Israeli chief of state who, Irish-
men say, speaks Hebrew with a
Dublin brogue. Conor Cruise
O'Brien, a former member of the
Eire Cabinet, said that his "heart
overflows with pride." Addres-
sing the annual dinner of the
Anglo-Israel Association,
O'Brien recited a special Irish
greeting to Herzog who, he
recalled, spoke Gaelic better than
he did himself.
"Beir Bua Agus Beannacht go
H-uachtaran Israel" ("I wish a
triumph and benediction to the
President of Israel") declared
O'Brien in the Gaelic tongue.
David Kimche, director general
of the Israeli Foreign Ministry,
who was present, suggested
lightheartedly that Herzog
should try to arbitrate the Irish
Test Tube Baby Born
el's third test tube baby was born
at the Sheba government hospi-
tal in Tel Has homer Monday.
The eight-pound baby girl, the
first born in Israel by natural de-
livery, was described by nurses
and doctors as "Israel's most
beautiful Yemenite." Both
father and mother are Yemenites.
"Local boy makes good" was
the headline in one Dublin news-
paper, recalling the election of
John Fitzgerald Kennedy,
America's first Irish Catholic
President in I960. The Irish
Press set about interviewing
people who knew Herzog as a
youth. One of them, Judge
Hubert Wine, president of the
Jewish Representative Council of
Ireland who was Herzog's clas-
smate st Dublin's Wesley
College, recalled: "He was a
realistic sort of guy, s debater in
the school and I think he played
soccer for the school."
An editorial in the same news-
paper said that "Ireland can take
vicarious pride" in Herzog's elec-
tion. "Whatever the domestic
considerations in Israel, Mr.
Herzog's election will be seen
hero at home simply in terms of
another notable success abroad
by an Irish exile," the editorial
The Irish Times was less
sentimental. It referred to the
strained relations between Israel
and Eire over Dublin's Middle
East policy and observed that
Herzog, as "a hard-line pragma-
tic politician," offers "no hint of
sentimentality about his Irish
origins" and is not likely to allow
them "to color his attitudes to
currently evolving Irish policies
on the Middle East."
But the paper also recalled an
interview with Herzog published
s decade ago in which the then
Israeli soldier and diplomat was
quoted as saying that in Pales-
tine after World War II, "The
British were bastards, and they
were incompetent bastards."
Such sentiments doubtlessly
endear him in the hearts of Irish
patriots. The newspaper recalled
President-Elect Henog
