Jews and other aided by JDC worldwide
The American Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC), a major beneficiary of
Efted Jewish Appeal funds for the work it
ies meeting humanitarian needs of Jews in
.ore than 30 countries, is also a major
^rtner of the Interfaith Hunger Appeal.
In its first annual report, the Interfaith
lunger Appeal, which includes, with JDC,
latholic Relief Services and the Church
|/orld Service, which represents the
otestant denomination, reports that men,
[omen and children in 90 countries around
he world benefit from the aid and assistance
at comes from Interfaith Hunger Appeal
One of the members of Hunger Appeal's Advisory
fommittee is the Synagogue Council of America. Rabbi
Henry D. Michelman, acting executive director of the
Inuncil. notes that the work of JDC in "this significant
n-faith effort to alleviate the sufferings caused by
torld hunger" has been somewhat obscured.
He lauds the JDC as the instrument of the Jewish
pmmuniu for overseas relief since 1914, saying, "It is
[highly respected agency helping Jews in need in over
countries around the world. In recent years, in
sponse to the urgings of American Jewry, JDC has
Kome involved in a number of interdenominational
|l!nri> of which the Interfaith Hunger Appeal is an
nportant part."
| JDC s chairman of the board, Donald M. Robinson,
otes that JDC, following consultations with the
ouncil of Jewish Federations and UJA, and working

Appeal campaigns sponsored by local
in close cooperation with local Federations "was active
in raising funds for relief during the Cambodian crisis
and more recently during the conflict in Lebanon. These
funds were used by JDC in cooperation with other non-
governmental agencies to carry out urgently needed
humanitarian programs."
Dr. Sherwood Slater, director of budget and planning
for JDC, reported that in Lebanon, over a million
dollars supplied by American Jewry was utilized for
materials and supplies to aid in sheltering, health care
and rebuilding homes for refugees of the 1982 war. He
said both Lebanese and Palestinian Arabs were
JDC's re-entry into Poland, Slater said, is one of the
most remarkable recent stories. He said: "On the eve of
the declaration of martial law, JDC executive vice
president, Ralph Goldman, was in Poland to sign an
agreement granting JDC permission to provide relief
and assistance to the approximately 5,000 Jews
remaining there.
"Through all of the turmoil and upheaval that
followed, not once was JDC interfered with in providing
assistance. Every Jew in Poland who admits to being
Jewish, and is in need, is reached through cash
assistance, food packages and centeens."
JDC, which gets 95 percent of its regular operating
budget from UJA, with the rest coming from Keren
Hayesod countries around the world, like South Africa,
and smaller Jewish communities, as well as Canada's
UJA and the Central British Fund, aids Holocaust
survivors in several countries.
Slater said about 7,000 aged Holocaust survivors in
Rumania, and other survivors who found homes in

While Christians and Druze continue fighting in Lebanon, the
ord battles among the nations in the Middle East flared anew
the failure of U.S. efforts to get Syria to move its 50,000
ops out of Lebanon.
Israels Defense Minister Moahe Arens, in Beirut last week,
named Syria against provoking Israel into war. He said that
fiyria would be "soundly beaten" if Israel were forced to fight.
His visit there was denounced by those opposing Lebanon
[resident Amin Gemayel's regime.
And then Russia warned Israel against destroying its war
eriel in Syria.
Which led Egyptian officials to cozy up to the Soviets urging
Dration of full diplomatic relations between Egypt and the
oviet Union, with the aim of buying arms from the Eastern
bloc of Communist countries.
And in Cairo, despite Syria President Hafez Assad's repeated
ertion that Israel forces must withdraw from Lebanon
["unconditionally" before Syrian troops leave, Egypt's President
Hosni Mubarak denounced Israeli policy as one of "stub-
omesv posing this question in a speech at Cairo University:
I/Have we really done our best to get the Israelis to withdraw
wn Lebanon?"
In Israel, Prime Minister Menachem Begin accused Syria of
blocking withdrawal of all foreign armies from Lebanon by
tfusing'to accept the Lebanon-Israeli troop-withdrawal
Sreement reached three months ago but never implemented,
yria claims the agreement threatens its security by allowing
ftaeli forces to patrol southern Lebanon.
Jewish doctor ordered deported from Bermuda
The story was headlined:
"Paradise lost on Bermuda, or is
it anti-Semitism?"
Len Lear, a reporter for the
Jewish Times of Greater North-
east, Philadelphia, in the July 26
issue, wrote that a Jewish psy-
chiatrist, who had lived on the
island for 13 years, has been
refused his work permit and has
been ordered deported, along
with his wife, the number one
ranked woman tennis champion
in Bermuda, and their two-year-
old son, Martin.
Lear wrote that Dr. Neville S.
Marks, 43-year-old native of
Manchester, England, and his
wife, Lana, 29, native of South
Africa, claimed their family is
being deported because of their
persistent efforts to become
Bermuda's first Jewish residents
to attain citizenship. Foreigners
are permitted to apply for
citizenship after living in Ber-
muda for five years. The Marks'
application has not been ac-
cepted, although they are among
the island's most prominent resi-
Dr. Marks has been presented
with an order that he must no
longer treat his patients. Though
Bermuda officials refused to
respond to Lear's questions
about Dr. Marks, Deidre Rattery,
spokesperson for the Bermuda
Tourist Department's news
bureau in New York, told him:
"Dr. Marks is a foreigner. Every
foreigner must apply for a new
work permit each year. The
Ministry of Home Affairs decided
to revoke Dr. Marks's work
permit this year without giving a
reason. They don't have to give a
Many Bermudans believe the
work denial and deportation
order are related to an earlier
incident in which Dr. Marks and
his wife were convicted of em-
ploying a "colored" South
African maid without immi- ,
gration approval. The case was
thrown out by the Bermuda
Supreme Court on appeal by the
Marks's who insisted that the
woman was a long time friend of
the family and was a non-working
house guest.
Dr. Marks told Lear that "It's
only when you live here that you
learn about the sutble forms of
anti-Semitism." A leader of the
small Jewish community about
100 to 200 families on the island,
he has conducted religious
services in his own home for
observant Jewish residents, and
for tourists who would be given
his name when inquiring about
Shabbat services. Now, however,
the Bermuda Tourist Bureai in
Hamilton claims there are no
Jews in Bermuda. Lear said that

"In the Muslim countries," Slater explained, "JDC
programs consist primarily of Jewish education. Here
the role of the Organization for Rehabilitation and
Training (ORT) is especially important. JDC will
provide ORT with $4,550,000 in 1983, over a quarter of
World ORT Union's central allocation. In Algeria and
Egypt, which JDC re-entered this past year, our work
mostly assists the indigent Jewish population
remaining in those remnant communities."
In Latin America and India, JDC, largely through
ORT, is involved in Jewish education. Although barred
from working in the Soviet Union. JDC has assisted
significantly in the emigration of a quarter million
Soviet Jews, and, according to Slater, has "done what
it can for those who remained behind."
Israel receives the largest share of JDC funds. Slater
said that 611,301,400 was spent last year, mostly for
health and social welfare activities. JDC created the
Malben institutions to care for aged and handicapped
new arrivals in Israel- JDC has taken on new tasks
including developing community centers, facilities for
handicapped children, mental health programs and
medical services.

out of Nicaragua
President Reagan last month,
speaking at a briefing arranged
by the White House Outreach
Working Group on Central
America, told a group of 260 rep-
resentatives from various private
organizations concerned about
the plight of Jews in Nicaragua:
"Virtually the entire Jewish
community in Nicaragua has
been frightened into exile. Their
synagogue, which had its doors
torched by Sandinista supporters
in 1978, has since been confis-
cated and turned into offices of a
Sandinista organization.
"Please share the truth that
Communism in Central America
means not only the loss of polit-
ical freedom but of religious free-
dom as well."
Joining the President in ad-
dressing the group were Isaac
Stavisky, a Nicaraguan Jew, and
Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthal,
director of the Latin American
Affairs Dept. of the Anti-
Defamation League's (ADL)
International Affairs Division.
Stavisky said that Nicaraguan
Jews "never encountered anti-
Semitism until the Sandinistas
started their revolution. Once the
Sandinistas came to power in
Jury, 1979, they moved swiftly
against Jews. Jewish owned
properties were among the first
to be confiscated and Jews were
forced into exile."
Rabbi Rosenthal, whose report
on anti-Semitic activities in
Central America is expanded in
the ADL Bulletin, September
1983 issue, told the group at the
briefing that the government of
Nicaragua claimed the syna-
gogue was a private building
even though ADL showed a
notarized sales contract that it
was owned by the congregation.
He pointed out that the govern-
ment can claim "no anti-
Semitism" is because almost all
of the Jews left the country in
1979 and 1980, yet, the press in
July 1982 still carried anti-
Semitic articles.
Rosenthal said: "Historically,
Jews have suffered greatly at the
hands of despots of all political
orientations. For this reason,
they are particularly sensitive to
the dangers of anti-Semitism. For
the Jews of Central America, the
signs are writ large that the
influence of the PLO and Libya
are a direct threat to their secur-
ity and well-being."
Stavisky ended his statement
with a "final word of warning to
Jews and other people of Central
America. Beware of the Sandin-
ista threat!"
Arnon to Leave Miami Post
Yehoshua Trigor has been ap-
pointed by the government of Is-
rael to succeed Arnon as Consul
General here. He will assume his
duties the first week in October.
The statement also indicated
that Miami Vice Consul Oded
Ben-Hur will be leaving Ids post
at the end of this month to return
o Israel for reassignmr. His
Consul General of Israel, Joel
Arnon, who was instrumental in
establishing the Israel Consulate
office in Miami and has been in
charge since its opening in Feb-
ruary of 1982, has issued a state-
ment that his assignment will
end in October, when he will re-
turn to Israel.

The PLO-Sandinista Connection
Central Americans in Middle East As Early As 1970
The Palestine Liberation
Organization is an active
ally of Communist revolu-
tionaries throughout Cen-
tral America. The PLO has
supplied training and
materiel for the Sandinista
revolution in Nicaragua,
and- is still supplying mili-
tary aid and advisors to the
Communist Sandinista
government. For their part,
Sandinista revolutionaries
were fighting beside their
PLO comrades in the
Middle East as early as
1970, are anti-Semitic and
are dedicated to the de-
struction of Israel.
Right now. the PLO is giving
the Salvadoran Communists the
same sort of help. Since the late
1960s, the PLO has been working
with Fidel Castro and his net-
work of Latin American revolu-
tionaries and has developed ties
to revolutionary organizations in
a number of Latin American
THOUGH THIS alliance has
received little attention in the
press, neither the PLO nor its
Latin Communist allies trouble
to deny it. On June 7, 1979. six
weeks before the Sandinistas
came to power, Sandinista press
spokesman Jorge Mandi deliver

belonging to the Sandinista
movements were at Palestinian
revolutionary bases in Jordan. In
the early 1970s. Nicaraguan and
Palestinian blood was spilled
together in Amman and in other
places during the Black Septem-
ber battles. .
"It is natural therefore, that in
our war against Somoza. we re-
ceived Palestinian aid for our
revolution in various forms."
Mandi also made it clear that
the Sandinistas had participated
in PLO terrorist acts such as

Volume 12
Number 27
Today is my wedding day. I am full of ex-
citement but I am also pensive. For six years I
have been living in Israel, without seeing any of
the family I grew up with when I was Adrianne
Hendnx in Columbus. Ohio. But I have a family
here: my kibbutz family.
A kibbutz is a communal farm and industrial
settlement in which all the members work
together to support the settlement as a whole,
taking no salaries and sharing in the labor, child
care, cooking, laundry and other tasks. Families
hve in individual apartments and children are
cared for in "children's houses" during the day
(and on some kibbutzim, at night, too). Parents
and youngsters eat together in a communal
dining room or in their apartments.
My thoughts flssh back to my first days in
Israel, when I was petrified because I didn't know
the Hebrew language. After my arrival at Ben
Ounon International Airport, two airport at-
tendants sensed my problem and helped me iret
on -bus to Tel Aviv, where I would board another
bus for Kibbutz Em Zurim. I was met by Rafi the
director of the "Ulpan," or intensive Hebrew '
studies program, which I would be joining in a
After I unpacked my things in my new room.
Kafi escorted me to the dining room. Actually
during that week we would be eating outside in an
enormous thatched hut. to celebrate the holiday
of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles.
The following morning, at 6.1 was awakened
by the sound of Rafi whistling down the path to
the U pan building, which housed 30 students
from 18 different countries. Rafi had come to
introduce us to our housemother, Aya, and our
Ulpan teachers. Hsdassah and Esther. A va fitted
each of us with work clothes, including shoes.
n,aw?f and *?her gaVe us brief description
of what to expect from our Ulpan program Rafi
gave us our work assignment*
We would attend Hebrew classes four hours a
day and work in the kibbutz four hours a day I
would be working in the kitchen for two weeks
nHhSfaSiT^ *! TOtaUjd to variou^her parts
of the kibbutz, including the orchards. laund^
turkey coops, cowsheds, dining hall and
children s houses. The members of the kibbutz are
also rotated from job to job. This ensures equality
among the members. Everyone is expected to do
some "dirty" work.
In my second week on the kibbutz, each Ulpan
student was assigned a family, which would be
our adopted family during our five-month stay. 1
was "adopted" by the Achitov family, which has
six children, ranging in age at the time from one
year to 18 years old. Having only one natural
brother. I was excited about having six brothers
and sisters.
The Achitov family is of German Polish ex-
traction. My being Black seemed to have no
bearing on their feeling of adopting me. That
Sabbath 1 understood why. AU of their 12 other
adopted children who chose to remain on kibbutz
came to visit them. They ramrod from blond-
haired Swedes to dark-skinned Yemenites. The
Achitov family tends to be redheaded with
freckles. What a sight to see at a dining table!
My attachment to the Achitov family grew as
did theirs to me. Rafi and his family, the
Achitov s best friends, also became part of my
extended family. After the Ulpan ended, I could
not bear to leave. I continued to work as a
volunteer, receiving room and board free. It was
with much difficulty that I finally left Kibbutt
I -m Zurim in order to study at one of Jerusalem's
hospitals. As often as I could, I returned to the
kibbutz to be with my family.
Blessings come in mysterious ways. While
participating in a work-study program in
respiratory therapy at a Jerusalem hospital. I m*
my husband-to-be. I took him home to the kib-
butz for my "father" to aprove of him. That was*
very important moment for me.
On this, my wedding day, my kibbutz, my
exnteded family and many other kibbutz
members are coming to Jerusalem to marry
their daughter. They are bringing with them ail
the food for the wedding, and the photographer
Even Jerusalemites, who are noted for their
kindness and "helping hand," are impressed by
what my kibbutz is doing for my wedding.
Not all kibbutzim may be quite like Ein Zurim
But I know that most of them share a deep
concern for those who come to them end

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdcde
PLO Giving Salvadoran
Communists Same Help
PLO representatives attended, In a similar incident in March
gnd Castro began efforts to make 1978, the Sandinistas went so far
the PLO a part of international as to join the Democratic Front
revolutionary activities, especial
ly in Latin America.
BY 1988, Cuban intelligence
and military personnel were as-
sisting the PLO in North Africa
and Iraq. By 1969, Cuban officers
were in joint training with PLO
officers in the USSR. In June
1969, Cubans from that training
class participated in a joint raid
with the PLO in the Sinai desert.
In 1972, Castro met with PLO
leaders in Algeria and the two
sides agreed to step up their joint
activities. The PLO undertook to
augment Cuban training of Latin
American terrorists with special-
ized training in Lebanon, South
Yemen, and Libya. In 1973,
Castro broke relations with Is-
rael. Cuba had become one of Is-
rael's most dedicated enemies. In
1974. the PLO opened its first
Latin American office in Havana.
Since being introduced to the
region by Castro, the PLO has
developed ties with revolutionary
groups in nearly half the coun-
tries in the region.
COOPERATION between the
Sandinistas and the PLO goes
back at least to 1969, seven or
eight years before most Ameri-
cans had heard of the Sandin-
istas. That year, some 50 Sandin-
ista guerrillas went to Tyre for
training under the PLO. Other
Sandinistas went to train in
terror at FLO camps in Algeria.
The Sandinista terrorists fit
right in with their PLO counter-
parts. It has been reported that
Pedro Arauz, a Sandinista who
had hijacked a Nicaraguan air-
liner in 1969, trained under the
PLO in 1970. As the quote from
Jorge Mandi makes clear, San-
dinista troops fought beside the
PLO against King Hussein of
Jordan in 1970.
Thomas Borge, Interior Minis-
ter of the Sandinista regime, has
confirmed that he and other
Sandinist-leadas were trained by
Al Fatah, the leading PLO group,
prior to 1970. Borge repeatedly
spent much of the early 1970's
working for Castro, and was fre-
quently in the Middle East,
where he used Libyan money and
PLO assistance to obtain arms
for Central American guerilla
THE FIRST official confirma-
tion of the PLO-Sandinista al-
liance came in February, 1978.
The two groups issued a joint
communique in Mexico City that
affirmed the "ties of solidarity"
existing between the two revolu-
tionary organizations. They were
united in their hatred of what
they called the "racist state of Is-
for the Liberation of Palestine in
a joint "declaration of war"
against Israel.
As the Sandinistas became
more confident of victory, PLO
aid became more concrete. Early
hi 1979, shortly before the final
Sandinista victory, the PLO sent
an arms shipment to the Sandin-
istas but it was intercepted by
the government of Morocco.
DURING THE final weeks of
the revolution, several large ship-
ments of arms arrived from the
Middle East. According to one
source, Thomas Borge arranged
for a shipment of guns to be sent
from North Korea on a ship own-
ed and operated by the PLO.
Within two weeks of the San-
dinista victory in July 1979, the
Sandinistas sent a mission to
Beirut to establish official con-
tacts with the PLO. The PLO
facilitated a $12 million loan to
the Sandinistas.
Today, Nicaragua is one of the
few countries in the world where
the PLO mission is officially
designated as an Embassy and
the ranking PLO official is refer-
red to as "Ambassador" a tes-
timony to the importance the
Sandinistas attach to their PLO
ON THE first anniversary of
the Sandinista Communist take-
over in 1980, Yasir Arafat came
to Managua as an honored guest.
Thomas Borge proclaimed, "The
PLO cause is the cause of the
And Arafat replied, "The links
between us are not new; your
comrades did not come, to our
country just to train, but to fight.

The PLO information bulletin,
Palestine, commented:
"There is no doubt there is a
common line between Nicaragua,
Iran, and Palestine. A common
front against a common
enemy .
"The Palestinian revolution
understands the international
dimensions of its struggle and its
international task of supporting,
within its capabilities, inter-
national liberation movements."
Current estimates suggest that
there are about 50 PLO personnel
in Nicaragua. Some are involved
in training Sandinista military in
the use of Eastern Bloc weapons,
some training pilots and flying
helicopters, maintaining aircraft
and training Salvadoran gueril-
las to export Communist terror to
that country.

to Israel.
One of the first clear signs of
sympathy between the two
groups emerged when one of the
major Salvadoran Communist
guerrilla groups, the Popular
Liberation Forces (FPL) kidnap-
ped and murdered the South
African Ambassador to El
Salvador. The FPL demanded, as
part of the ransom, that the
Salvadoran government break

Just a month later, the

San Salvador to show "solidarity
with the Palestinian people," and
demanded that the government
recognize the PLO.
IN MAY, 1980, a delegation
from Revolutionary Coordination

groups, met in Beirut with one of
Yasser Arafat's deputies, Abu

for training programs and arms

The brief supports the suit of
Jeffrey P. May, an Edison, N.J.
high school science teacher, and a
group of public school students
against the New Jersey Depart-
ment of Education. Mr. May has
refused to schedule a minute of
silent meditation or prayer in his
The brief noted that in order to
be constitutional, legislation
must have a "secular purpose."
The history and circumstances
surrounding the passage of the
"moment of silence" law in New
Jersey demonstrates that the
state legislature "had a religious
purpose that is, it intended to
achieve a religious end."
The legislative history of the
statute "suggests that the
legislature intended to encourage
students to engage in religious
activity" and is "simply the
latest in a long series of efforts by
the state of New Jersey to put
prayer back into the schools," the
brief said. It noted that such at-
tempts go back at least to 1970.
The brief said there was no way
to administer the law in a neutral
manner or to prevent over-
zealousness on the part of ad-
ministrators or teachers. Imple-
mentation of the statute could
not help but lead to infringement
on the students' religious free-
dom, it claimed, noting that
"possible (church-state) en-
tanglements go on and on."
The brief said that the statute
was unneeded in the first place
because each student is always
free to meditate or pray privately
at any time during the school day
when he or she is not otherwise
engaged in school activities.

(JTA) An unprecedented
measure, which will sub-
stantially limit the power of
medical examiners
throughout New York
State to perform autopsies
over religious objections,
an issue of vital concern to
observant Jews, has been
signed into law by Gov.
Mario Cuomo.
The measure's principal
sponsor, Assemblyman Sheldon
Silver, (D., Man.) said, when the
bill was adopted earlier this year
by the Legislature, that it is the
first and only law of its kind in
the United States.
THE NEW law provides that,
if there is conscientious objection
by next of kin or "friend" of the
decedent, the medical examiner
may not perform an autopsy
unless there is "a compelling
public necessity," defined as a
situation in which an autopsy is
"essential to the conduct of a
criminal investigation of a
homicide" of which the dead
person may be a victim; or thJ
discovery of the cause of dawki
is necessary to meet an ^
diate and substantial trWui
the public health; and that T
dissection or autopsy is essential
to ascertain the cause of death"
Silver said the new law aim i
provided that even a permissibk
autopsy cannot be perfornd
without notice to permit "nt
objecting party to challenge thej
propriety of the particular]
Silver said the law require]
that if a medical examinaH
contends an autopsy is warrant*!]
by a "compelling public
necessity" other than invest |
gation of a possible homicide or j
prevention of disease, a court
order must be obtained "<*
notice of next of kin or friend, or!
if none is known to them, to suck
party as the court may direct."
SILVER SAID this reversal
the prior process of those op-
posing an autopsy having to p |
to court to halt "clearly ob-l
jectionable autopsies" but tail
new law also provides "ij
mechaniam for a court to ruled]
extraordinary situations."

Reviewed by Paul Cowan,
author of An Orphan in History:
Retrieving a Jewish Legacy.
In 1973, when my wife Rachel
and I began to make our house-
hold more Jewish, we bought a
plethora of "how-to" books. They
supplied facts, but there were no
feelings behind them. Later on,
The Jewish Catalog began to fill
that gap. Now, How to Run a
Traditional Jewish Household
provides a new, indispensible
guide to the practical details and
emotional satisfactions of obser-
Blu Greenberg has written an
all-purpose "how-to" book. She
explains religious observances
like Shabbat, kashrut, prayers,
and blessings. She discusses
stages of life marriage, birth,
bar-bat mitzvahs, divorce, death
and mourning. She shows the
cycle of the Jewish year, focusing
on each holy day and describing
its significance. In all the sec-
tions of her book, she blends
information, theology, and auto-
biography in a way that claims
the reader's fascinated attention.
The strength of the book comes
from its author's ability to infuse
each ritual with thought and pas-
sion. Her first chapters, which
describe preparations for the
Sabbath, set the tone for the rest
of the book. In them, we meet Blu
a personable, funny, reflective
human being whose household
and life one can imagine.
For example, though her Shab-
bat is a holy day, a time with
special texture, she is also a har-
ried housewife and professional
woman with a taste for worldly
pleasures. Thus, she is able to tell
us that, some Friday nights, she
wishes she could write down a
good idea; that occasionally shul
on Shabbat seems dull; that

at an Al Fatah camp in June,
On July 23, 1980, represen-
tatives of the Salvadoran United
Revolutionary Directorate
(DRU) which was then the unif-
ied military command for the
various Salvadoran Communist
groups, met with Arafat in
Managua. Arafat promised them
arms and aircraft. Later in the
year, Arafat did send some arms
to the DRU, and according to
published reports, PLO fighters
were sent to El Salvador in Sep-
The alliance picked up steam in
1981. In March, Shafik Handal, a
Salvadoran of Palestinian
descent and ied of El Salvador's
Communist Party, mat with
Arafat and representatives of
Ha bash's Popular Front in Leb-
anon. The meeting resulted in a
joint communique that, among
other points, included an agree-
ment to continue cooperation be-
tween the unified Salvadoran
guerrilla groups and Habash's
BY EARLY 1981, according to
Congressional testimony from
Acting Assistant Secretary of
State for Inter-American Affairs
John Bushnell, there had been "a
massive influx of arms from
Soviet and other Communist
sources." Radical Arab states
and the Palestine Liberation
Organization, and the terrorist
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine have furnished
funds, arms, and training.
In January, 1982, Arafat said
publicly that PLO guerrillas were
serving in El Salvador. And
documents captured in Beirut
during the summer of 1982 reveal
that there were Salvadoran
guerrillas in PLO camps in Leb-
Though these fragments of
information have left a clear trail,
even without them there would
be no doubt about the relation-
ship between the Central Ameri-
can Communists and PLO terror,
because both sides have loudly
proclaimed it. In 1981, Yasir
Arafat spoke in words too clear to
be misunderstood or explained
away: "We are a great revolution
that can never be intimidated.
We have connections with all the
revolutionary movements
throughout the world, in El
Salvador, in Nicaragua and I
reiterate Salvador and else-
where in the world."

leadership had decided on a silent
ceremony. There were no
speeches, but Chief Rabbi Rene
Sirat and half a dozen other
religious leaders recited Kadish
and extracts from the Psalms.
For several hours, people walked
past Goldenberg's restaurant in
silence. Some carried lit. candles;
others laid wreaths on the dusty
Some of the community's
traditional leaders privately
criticized Klein for having
compared, in press interviews,
the Rue dee Hosiers attack with
the recent murder of three Arab
students in Hebron. Klein, a 62-
year-old lawyer who holds both
French and Israeli nationalities
and lives half of the time in Jeru-
salem where he is a member of
the bar, said:
"As far as I am concerned,
shooting people sitting in
Goldenberg's restaurant or those
in an Islamic school in Hebron, is
the same." He told several daily
papers, including the leftwing
Liberation, "How can one
condemn the Rue des Hosiers
attack without condemning what
has happened in Hebron?"
KLEIN'S declarations,
welcomed by many, show how
deeply the community has
changed since last summer.
Then, France's Jews were already
deeply shaken by the previous
terrorist attack which killed four
people and wounded 20 when a
bomb exploded outside the
Liberal synagogue on Rue
Copernk. Local Jews felt hurt
and insulted by the daily press
comments accusing Israel of
using unnecessary force and
causing unnecessary civilian
The community still recalls the
tragic days of August, 1962, but
has overcome the trauma. Many
of those present at the ceremony
on the Rue des Hosiers said that
Klein's declarations show that
"we have overcome the hurdle
and that the community now
feels secure enough to speak its
mind when it deems it
French police, meanwhile, Bay
their year-long investigations are
finally progressing. The police
sources say they have ballistic
proof that the Rue des Rosiers
killers used similar weapons to
those which members of the Abu
Nidal group used when they
attacked Vienna's main synago-
gue in August, 1971. The Vienna
terrorists have been arrested, and
the Austrian police are convinced
they belong to the Abu Nidal
THE FRENCH also believe
that the terrorist arrested last
April in Lisbon and charged with
the murder of PLO roving am-
bassador and negotiator Issam
Sartawi, was part of the Rue des
Rosiera hit gang. The suspect
was questioned by a French
investigating magistrate, and the

preparing to ask Portugal for his

an Armenian involved in the
recent Orly Airport explosion at
the Turkish air line counter had
also played an active role in the

Have you seen Ann Gotlib lately?
She's only 5 feet tall and
weighs just 80 pounds, but if you
ever saw this beautiful, 12-year-
old red-haired girl, you would not
forget her. Her parents, the FBI
and the Luoisville, Ky.. police
hope you have seen her.
She is Ann Gotlib, a Soviet
immigrant who disappeared on
June 1. Police and her family
believe she has been abducted.
To date, police say. all leads in
the case have fizzled out. And
this has happened despite a
$15,000 reward for information
lnadmg; to the arrest and convic-
tion of her abductor.
Ann's parents and the Jewish
Family and Vocational Service
agency of Louisville now have
asked B'nai B'rith International
to help in finding her.
Ann is believed to have been
abducted at about 6 p.m. on June
1 in the vicinity of Bashford
Manor Shopping Mall in Louis-
ville. Her mother, Lyugmila, said
that Ann rode her bicycle to a
friend's house. The two girls
spent the afternoon at the Jewish
Community Center where they
played until it was time to go
home. Mrs. Gotlib said Ann was
due home about 6 because they
had plans for the evening.
When Ann failed to return by
6:15. her mother called the police.
The Jefferson County police
later found Ann's bicycle parked
against a wall of shopping center,
not far from where Ann's friend
had left her about 5:30. Police
believe a passerby found the bike
and placed it there.
In the two months since Ann's

The Gotlibs came to the United
States from the Soviet Union in
1980. Like thousands of other
Russian Jews, they were search-
ing for freedom. They settled in
Louisville because they had
heard that it was a "safe"
community. Ann's father,
Anatoly, a mining engineer in
Kiev, now works as an engineer
for Bechtel Petroleum. Mrs. Got-
lib is an assistant teacher.
Ann, who is their only child
and who speaks English and
Russian fluently, was described
by her father as a published poet
and music composer who also has
a great interest in natural
science. "With all the oppor-
tunities in this free country of
ours, she could do whatever she
wants to do," her father told the
Louisville Courier-Journal.
Said her mother, "She's never
let us down She is a bright
girl, a talented girl.
"We need her. She is our Ufa"

Israel and Egypt.

the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations, said the Jewish

Egyptian Praises Syria's
Refusal to Withdraw
PARIS (JTA) Syria's refusal to withdraw its
ces from the Bekaa valley has been justified by
fcyptian Minister of State Boutros Ghali. He told Arab
urnalists here, after his arrival in Paris, that Syria's

GHALI'S DECLARATION, printed in several Arab-
Pguage dailies, might indicate a change in Egyptian
pan relations. Cairo and Damascus broke off
plomatic relations in 1979 after the signing of the
peli-Egyptian peace treaty and the two countries' state
dios and televisions have been generally trading ae-
rations and insults.

leaders had stressed that they
were "very wary" that Egypt has
not returned its Ambassador to
Israel even though Israel and
Lebanon had signed an agree-
ment for the withdrawal of Israeli
troops from Lebanon.
When Egypt withdrew its
Ambassador last September, it
said he would not return until
Israel agrees to withdraw from
Lebanon. But Egyptian spokes-
men are now talking about a
complete withdrawal as well as
the improvement of conditions on
the West Bank before an envoy is
sent to Tel Aviv.
BERMAN SAID the Egyptian
position was not only "disap-
pointing" but "not very
productive toward the overall
peace effort." He said there is an
"expectation" that Israel will be
asked to take "risks for peace."
But he said when it took a
"major risk" for peace by its
withdrawal from the Sinai all it
received in return was a "piece of
paper" that promised a new
relationship that has not yet been
Bennan and 10 other Jewish
leaders, representing the
Presidents Conference and the
National Republican Jewish
Coalition, met for an hour-and-a-
half with Shultz. They had been
invited by the White House
which said President Reagan had
asked Shultz to brief them on the
Reagan Administration's recent
meetings with Lebanese Presi-
dent Amin Gemayel and Israeli
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
and Defense Minister Moshe
THE JEWISH leaders
emerged from the State
Department apparently pleased
by the present state of Israeli-
U.S. relations. Noting that he
had become chairman of the
President's Conference on June 9,
1982, Bennan said, "I've never
had it better."
He said the present state of
relations were "much more
fundamental" than the "honey-
moon" that it has been labeled
since the May 17 signing of the
Lebanese-Israeli agreement. He
said, first of all, two major
irritants between Israel and the
U.S. have been removed for the
present because of Jordan's
refusal to join the autonomy
negotiations, a fundamental part
of Reagan's Sept. 1 peace initia-
tive, and the issue of Israeli with-
Secondly, Berman stressed
that Shultz himself is responsible
in the improvement in relations.
He asid that the Secretary
believes in "interpersonal rela-
tionships" and has been able to
relate to Israeli officials on an

ISRAEL AND the U.S. are
now collaborating to get Syria to
withdraw its troops out of Leba-
non, Berman said. While not
overly optimistic, he said the
U.S. understands that it will not
get Syrian President Hafez
Assad to agree immediately to
Instead, the U.S. is hopeful that
in the "long run," Syria can be
"isolated" by having other Arab
countries and the West Euro-
peans join the U.S., Israeli and
Lebanese efforts for Syrian with-
drawal, Berman explained. He
added that in this connection, the
State Department believes that
Saudi Arabia has been and will
continue to be helpful.
This means that the naming of
Robert McFarlane to replace
Philip Habib as special Mideast
envoy is not part of a "fresh
approach" to the problem,
Berman emphasized.
HE SAID: "It is not a
question of sending McFarlane to
Syria and he'll walk out of the
meeting with Assad saying
'okay' and with McFarlane
saying 'He (Assad) didn't give
into Habib and Shultz but he
gave into me.' Instead, Berman
said the Administration realizes
it cannot expect "immediate
results" but it waa necessary "to
persevere" for the "long run."
The issue of Soviet Jewry was
also discussed, Berman said. He
said the meeting "reinforced" the
understanding of the Jewish
community that in every VS.
meeting with the Soviets, in-
cluding the meetings Shultz is
expected to have with Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko in Madrid in Sep-
