"one of the most moving,

From the moment they
landed.and were taken to
Delancey Street for lunch
at Ratner's, the women
knew that this mission was
something special.
"I received the same
emotional impact and sense
on the mission to New

visited Ierael," said Lois
Polish, Mission leader.
Whls in New York, Mis-
sion participants took a
walking tour of the lower
East Side of Manhattan,
where many Jews settled
after going through Ellis
Island. They had a briefing
at the Joint Distribution
Committee, a private tour
of the Jewish Museum, and
visited the Jewish Alliance,
where immigrants went to
learn and speak English.
The participants
treated to lunch at the
home of Joan Lavie, wife of

Lavie compared life here in

Museum and Holocaust Memorial
to open in N.Y. in 1987
of 1987 is the target date for the
opening of the museum and
memorial to the Holocaust to be
housed in the unused 77-year-old
United States Customs Building
in lower Manhattan, according to
David Blumenfeld, the executive
director of the New York City
Holocaust Commission.
Blumenfeld cautioned,
however, that the projected date
remains tentative because the
federal government will be
renovating the exterior of the
structure, constructed in 1907.
The museum and memorial
center wil use the lower two floors
and the basement, while the top
five floors will be leased by the
General Services Administration
(GSA>, which owns the building.
The GSA regional adminis-
trator. William Diamond, an-
nounced last month that the
government decided in favor of
teasing the building to the
Holocaust Commission which
was vying for the Beaux-Arts
landmark with s consortium of
arts organizations that wanted to
use the building as a cultural
The announcement by
Diamond, however, caused some
confusion as to the themes the
museum will emphasize.
Blumenfeld asserted that
Diamond was misinformed when
he asserted that the museum, in
addition to focusing on the
Holocaust, would include a
history of Jews in the diaspora.
In an interview with the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency,
Blumenfeld emphasized that the
museum will seek to focus on
three interrelated themes: Jewish
civilization in Europe, the
Holocaust and its aftermath, and
Jewish immigration to New
York. Furthermore, the museum
will contain research facilities, an
auditorium for performances, and
a chapel and meditation room.
Tel Aviv U. to establish first
Oncology Institute in Israel
Cancer. To some, the fear of
this disease is so overwhelming
that they hesitate to even
mention the word. For others,
fear is tempered with the aware-
ness that many cancer victims
can be saved, that sophisticated
techniques developed in recent
years dramatically increase the
possibility of survival.
This possibility in America is
very real. In Israel the reality is a
bit grimmer. Referring to cancer
cure and treatment. Dr. Isaac
Djerassi, one of America's
foremost cancer specialists
recently noted, "Obviously this is
best done in cancer institutions
such as the Farber in Boston, the
Sfoan-Kettering in New York, the
M.D. Anderson in Houston or the
Rosewell Park in Buffalo, and
in none in Israel. While the
standards of Israeli medicine are
superb, there is no single cancer
institute in Israel to equal the
best in the United States.
For this reason Tel Aviv
University has decided to
develop and extend its research
into cancer by establishing an
Oncology Institute, and it will be
headed by Dr. Djerassi, who has
recently been appointed to the
Faculty of Medicine as a
Professor of Oncology.
It is expected that the new
Oncology Institute in Israel will
increase the cure rate of cancer
patients at least five percent.
With 8000 cases of cancer a year,
the additional number of Israelis
saved each year would amount to
400. For Israel, 400 cancer
victims is- a vest figure, repre-
senting immeasurable loss to the
country, and CO families alike.
Rather than using the current
departmental approach to cancer
treatment, the new Institute will
coordinate, specialize and do
research to ensure that all
patients receive the best possible
results with currently available
modalities. Dr. Djerassi explains
that the multi-faceted medical
problems of cancer patients are
beet treated by physicians ex-
perienced in their care.
According to Blumenfeld, the
museum will incorporate hands-
on delivery systems such as video
consoles, computer data banks
and viewers to provide visitors
with participatory learning
experiences. The education center
will house a comprehensive
library for basic information and
scholarly research.
A special archive will open for
deposit of memorabilia, original
and microfilm documents and
personal collections, according to
Blumenfeld, including written
and oral testimony from
Holocaust survivors in the New
York area.
Special priorities will be
planned for outreach efforts to
encourage school visits to the
museum, including classes from
New York's public, private and
religious schools. There is ex-
pected to be outreach to syn-
agogues, churches, and com-
munity centers to help them
create courses on Jewish cultural
life. Holocaust studies and modes
of commemoration.
Additional outreach activities
of the museum and memorial
center will include, among other
things, promoting scholarly
research and the publication of
new findings, publishing a
journal, establishing a lecture
bureau, and alerting the public to
the dangers of neo-Nazi and anti-
Semitic literature.

Outright Gifts A gift of money
or property may be mads during
the donor's lifetime, and may be
initiated as s fund to which addi-
tional sums may be added from
time to time by the donor, his
family or friends. Such gifts may
be used to build a memorisl fund
to perpetuate a family name.
Unrestricted Gifts The most
deaireable form of giving is the
unrestricted gift. This permits
the Foundation to use its discre-
tion to meet the most pressing
and appropriate needs of the
time. The giver enjoys the firm
assurance that his contribution
will be used wisely in the light of
ever-changing future demands.
Bequests There are many ways
to make a gift to the endowment
fund through bequests. You can
adopt the plan best suited to an
individual situation.

an Outright Bequest in your will,
you can bequeath cash, securi-

Pge4 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Uuderdate / Friday, November 28,1964
Hitting Nail on Head;
Peace Is Prime Target
In these columns last week, we hit the
nail on the head. Why, we wondered, were
the Israelis entering into a new round of
talks with the Lebanese? They had after all
managed a peace arrangement of sorts with
the Lebanese in May, 1983. And then,
promptly, the whole thing was cancelled,
with the Syrians laughing especially hard
in Damascus.
In our view, we opined here, the same
thing would happen again assuming the
new of round talks, this time to negotiate
an Israeli withdrawal of its defense forces,
would last long enough to come to a
Well, last weekend, the Lebanese did it
again. They cancelled a second time, under
the flimsiest of pretexts, and this time well
before anything of substance was ever
permitted to be accomplished.
Why did the Israelis submit themselves
to more predictable humiliation?
The answer is simple: peace. In the name
of peace, Israel demonstrates once again
that it is willing to do anything reasonable
to achieve it. If some think this is a self-
defeating pattern of behavior, they miss
the more minor moves in the grand Middle
Eastern chess game.
Israel, apparently, considers no move as
minor in this game, not even those that
seem doomed to failure but that at least
show again and again the Israelis' profound
desire for peace.
Let Lebanese Mean It
It is on the basis of such motivations as
these that Israel holds on for dear life to the
fragile peace wrought with Egypt at Camp
Camp David and the treaty that emerged
out of it are a monstrosity. The price Israel
has had to pay for it is one it will never be
able to afford; indeed, the price rises with
each passing day. The growing bellicosity
of President Hosni Mubarak, his
burgeoning arrogance in the manner in
which he has violated the letter and the
spirit of the treaty by recalling Egypt's
Ambassador to Israel when Israel launched
Operation Peace for Galilee in June, 1982,
are a case in point.
Israel has borne these and other
Mubarak humiliations with whatever
aplomb it can muster in so difficult a
diplomatic situation. It has done so just in
order to maintain peace with Egypt at any
The same holds true in Lebanon. Israel
has already threatened to embark upon
unilateral moves to assure its security in
Lebanon prior to the conditional with-
drawal of its forces should the Lebanese
continue to play their hide-and-seek, game.
We expect that the object here was to stir
the Lebanese sufficiently so that they
would return to the talks begun last week.
We do not doubt their intention of
carrying out their threats should the
Lebanese remain bellicose. But there can
also be no doubting Israel's preference:
that the Lebanese start talking again. And
mean it.

Chutzpah of Iraq's Tears About Bombing Reactors
Now that the United Nations is back in
session once more, suddenly the at-
mosphere around the East River, upon
which sits the magnificent splendor of that
world peace organization,'' is ripe with
new third World slander directed against
Last week, there was Iraq demanding for
the fourth time an inquiry into Israel's
bo mbing of its eentsy-weentsy atomic
reactor built courtesy of the French at
Osirak a military maneuver silently
praised and devotedly adored by most of
the nations in the West who were so vocal
in lambasting it publicly.
And, in this UN fountainhead of 1
World pompous self-adoration, rose la
new envoy, Benjamin Netanyahu,toi
for all who would listen that among I
most recent depradations in its war witl
Iran was a bombing sorti against thei
spectre of a nuclear reactor in Iran,
The Iraqi reason given? The threat th
those nasty Iranians posed to the regiofl
and to world peace, in their efforts to
emerge as a nuclear power.
Talk about chutzpah.

Some of the gossip suggests
that the Administration con-

Kissinger, according to this

Feminism and the Jewish tradition

Jewish and Female: Choices and
Changes in Our Lives Today. By
Susan Weidman Schneider,
Simon and Schuster. S19.95.
Woman and Jewish Law: An
Exploration of Woman's issues in
Halahhic Sources. By Rachel
Biale Schocken Books. $18.95.
Reviewed by Ann Roiphe
In Jewish and Female, Susan
Weidman Schneider, the found-
ing mother of Lilith magazine,
has subdued all the information,
all the ferment and the creative,
rebellious, life-enhancing actions
and thoughts of the Jewish fem-
inist movement into one compre-
hensive, calm, useful, coherent
In concise sections she tells
you about the building of new
rituals, the ways to have a
woman's minyan, the way one
might celebrate a girl's
menarche. She reports on the
fatigue of woman around tradi-
tional holiday preparations. She
reports on the pain of woman ex-
cluded from the mourner's
prayers. She explores some of the
hidden anti-female messages
coded in the story of Esther. She
makes concrete, clear, common-
sense suggestions on how to
bring feminism into your kitchen,
into your office and into your
house of worship.
Each section refers you to the
appropriate publications on the
subject and tells you where to
find the necessary materials for
everything from a feminist Seder
to an non-patriarchal wedding.
She has managed to include pas-
sages from the writings of every
Jewish feminist from E.M.
Broner to Letty Cottin Pogrebin.
She quotes Rachel Cowan on
intermarriage and Michael and
Sharon Strassfeld on everything
about being Jewish. The book
contains so many references to
other publications that it some-
times seems like a narrated
The tone of this book is always
sympathetic, supportive and
informative. The anger and the
excitement of the early days of
the feminist movement are only
dimly reflected here but we can
see that now we have passed on
to the hard work of creating the
new practical details without
which there can be no real social
change, no viable future for the
Jewish woman.
Rachel Biale's Woman and
Jewish Law is an aiwring book
rich in scholarship, deep in
historical perspective and
enormously interesting to anyone
concerned with the questions of
Jewish life. Biale traces for us the
origins of the decisions that
placed women outside of Jewish
learning, excluded them from the
obligations of devotion and
defined them as others, inferiors,
sometimes impure, always out-
side of the laws of justness and
She shows us, however, that
frequently the Rabbis themselves
struggled to make decisions that
would ease woman's position
while the community, steeped in
folklore and prejudice, inter-
preted these decisions in the
crudest possible manner. We see
that the Rabbis themselves were
not only the shapers of a society
but frequently acted like mirrors,
reflecting what had already been
culturally decided. We see how
the decisions changed in the
Diaspora, we see how the Rabbis
could sometimes alter their views
when convinced of the basic
injustice of a situation.
In chapters that cover all wo-
man's issues from divorce, to
rape, to promiscuity she traces
the opinions of the scholars back
to the first known records and
shows us the commentaries on
these decisions and we watch as
the fabled great Rabbis, one after
another solidify a system of law
that excludes women from its
chambers and diminishes their
contribution by excluding them
from the heart of life, the study of
Torah. At the same time we see
the Rabbis trying to be just to
both the woman and the fetus.
We see the Rabbinic mind work-
ing with superb logic, building on
precedent and reasoning with wit
and skill.
This book is of enormous value
for anyone who wants to under-
stand how Jewish woman have
lived at least since the destruc-
tion of the Second Temple. It
makes clear the systematic, legal
discrimination that brought us to
the despised contemporary
Jewish mother and her ridiculous
daughter, the Jewish Princess.
Oddly, while frequently wincing
in pain while reading this book
one still is left with enormous
respect for the tradition and hope
for its capacity to correct itself so
that it can be more faithful to its
basic principles. If the men and
women of the following genera-
tions do not become as equal in
the eyes of the law as they are in
the eyes of God, "male and
female, made he them," it will be
our fault, not the fault of the
Rabbis who lived in history,
groping their way cautiously
toward a better world.

improved farming methods. He
said that a study prepared by the
Israel Ministry of Agriculture
shows that "even with a very
modest improvement of farming
methods" enough food will be
produced to feed twice the
world's population.
The Ambassador said that
Israel is willing to share its expe-
rience in food production with
any country in the world. "In the
past, we have eagerly shared the
fruits of our experience with
others, particularly with the
nations of Africa. We are doing
so again. Israel is now cooperat-
ing with close to 50 countries
around the world in agriculture,
and in such related fields as water
resources, rural development and
public health," Netanyahu said.
He concluded, "Above all, we
would like to share our experience
with those who think such
cooperation would be directly
useful to them. We offer to share
with any country, whatever its
political relationship with us, the
fruits of our own efforts in food
production. We are prepared to
establish immediate contacts
with such countries to inves-
tigate their specific problems
relating to famine and drought."

In the Senate, Sen. Charles
Percy (R. IU.) was defeated by
Democrat Paul Simon, con-
sidered a close friend of Israel
during his years in the House.
Percy, who had long had the
support of Illinois' Jews, lost it
this year because of his criticism
of Israel and his movement
toward the Palestine Liberation
Organization, despite his
assertion that he supports Israel
and his strong leadership in the
struggle for Soviet Jewry.
Percy was chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, and his successor may
decide how that committee acts
toward Israel. With the Republi-
cans maintaining control of the
Senate, next in line for the chair-
manship is Sen. Jesse Helms (R.
N.C.) who, along with Percy, was
one of the two senators targeted
by many Jews across the country
this year for defeat.
Helms, who was reelected, has
opposed all foreign aid, including
that to Israel, and has frequently
criticized Israel, most notably
after Israel invaded Lebanon in
1982. He said at the time that the
United States should "shut down
relations with Israel" if Premier
Menachem Begin did not agree to
a ceasefire.
But Helms pledged in his
campaign to remain chairman of
the Senate Agriculture Commit-
tee, a post important to his North
Carolina constituents.
At the same time, he is ex-
pected to come under pressure
from the New Right, which
worked for Percy's defeat, to take

Hebrew University offers new delivery of anti-epiletic drug
effective means than that cur-
rently in use for administering a
proven anti-epileptic drug has
been developed at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
Dr. Meir Bialer and Dr.
Michael Friedman of the Depart-
ment of Pharmacy at the Uni-
versity's School of Pharmacy,
have successfully incorporated
the least toxic of all known anti-
epileptic drugs, valporic acid,
into a tablet made of materials
which release the drug in the
digestive system at a sustained
level over a 24-hour period.
Normally, valporic add breaks
down rapidly in the body, leading
to it having to be administered
three times a day and causing
"peaks and valleys" in the
concentration of the drug in the
blood plasma, Dr. Friedman ex-
plained, adding that this has
limited the usefulness of this
known and effective medication
for long-term treatments.
With the new tablet developed
at the Hebrew University, the
patient need only take one dose a
day, and the result is an even,
steady level of the drug in the
blood. A constant plasma con-
centration of a drug, and a
constant, well denned therap-
eutic effect is considered an ideal
situation for the patient, said Dr.
Clinical tests on the new tablet
already have been conducted on
dogs and humans, with the ap-
proval of the Israeli Ministry of
Health. The research has been
supported by a grant from
Israel's National Council for Re-

Peres Visits Supermarket [To Study Price Freeze Effects
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
went shopping in a Jerusalem
supermarket to study at first
land the effects of the price
freeze instituted this week. He
said he was "very encouraged on
the whole," both by the general
implementation and by con-
He conceded, though, that
there were initial difficulties and
Torching of Brooklyn Synagogues
Called 'Two Vilest' Actions
State Human Rights Com-
missioner Douglas White
has called the recent arson
fires at two Brooklyn syn-
agogues "the vilest of acts
that can be directed against
a people.
"THESE TWO incidents, for
the moment, have focused public
attention on the anti-Semitism
that plagues our society," White
said. "But we must never forget
that acts of violence and
desecration are the symptoms of
racial and religious hatred that
must be confronted on an on-
going basis."
The Human Rights Com-
missioner stressed that he is
confident that law enforcement
authorities will "move quickly to
apprehend the perpetrators in
these two incidents and bring the
full force of law to bear on them."
New York City Police Commis-
sioner Benjamin Ward has
formed a 20-man task force to
investigate both incidents. The
New York Jewish Community
Relations Council has offered a
$5,000 reward for information
leading to the arrest and con-
viction of those found guilty in
the arson attack at the Mapleton
Park Jewish Center.
"The desecration of a house of
worship demeans all of us, no
matter what our religious
beliefs," White said. "It strikes
at the very underpinnings of our
pluralistic society and the free
exercise of religion."
White's statement came
following arson fires at two
Brooklyn synagogues. One at the
Mapleton Park Jewish Center
gutted the entire synagogue,
destroying nine sacred Torah
scrolls. An arson fire singed the
front door of Congregation
Talmud Torah. Both synagogues
are in the Bensonhurst section of
said these were inevitable, given
that this was a novel and untried
method of combatting inflation.
The price freess on all goods
and services was promulgated by
Ministry of Commerce regula-
tions and will stay in effect till
Jan. 6. It is part of the gover-
"package deal" which was for-
mally signed last night in the
Prime Minister's office in Jeru-
salem. The deal provides that
wages and profits ss well as taxes
will also be froten for the three-
month period.
AMONG THE problems which
Peres and many other shoppers
encountered were mistakes in the
published lists of authorized
maximum prices. The lists were
issued by the Commerce Ministry
and appeared in Maariv and
Yediot Achronot. They cover
close to 500 items which officials
say represent some 80 percent of
the average family's regular out-
In some cases, shopkeepers
found the published prices too
high: they said they were selling
the goods considerably cheaper.
In other cases the prices were
said to be too low.
The ministry prom toed a revis-
ed list during the day. But It
rejected a widely prevalent com-
plaint from shopkeepers that the
sated price for sugar 149
Shekels s kilo was too low. The
shopkeepers claimed they paid
the wholesalers more than that.
But the ministry insisted that
149 Shekels was a fair retail price.

IN TEL AVIV, those em-

through the Bank Leumi
returned to their jobs after the
bank agreed to lend the city
sufficient funds to cover its

The bad economic news was

feared. Recently, Maof, a charter

All About Medicare
Q: / read in the paper that
there is a new law concerning
doctors who take assignments. It
seems that now, doctors must
take assignments in all cases if
they decide to take assignment at
all. Can you tell me more about
this law?
A: You are referring to a mod-
ification of the current law called
Limitation on Physician Incen-
tives (Section 2306) which was
signed by the President as a part
of the Deficit Reduction Act of
1984. Federal government en-
courages doctors who take
assignments to accept assign-
ments in al cases. In other
words, if a doctor accepts one
assignment, he must accept all
Medicare assignments. Doctors
who joined the program before
Oct. 9. will be included in special
directories which are being pub-
lished by Blue Cross-Blue Shield.
These directories are due Dec. 1,
for distribution among the Social
Security offices. Medicare
patients will also be able to
obtain the names of participating
doctors by calling a toll-free tele-
phone line. Among other incen-
tives, the participants will
qualify for Medicare fee increases
after the 15-month freeze on
Medicare payments to physicians
ends in September 1985. Until
then, Medicare will pay doctors
on the basiaof the 1982 allowance
scale-Also, doctors who pledged
to take assignments in all cases
are allowed to increase their own
fees during the freeze. Medicare
will recognize these increases in
future reimbursements of charges
of participating physicians. On
the other hand, physicians who
chose not to join the assignment
program will be penalized and-or
excluded from the Medicare
Margarita Fiks
program for up to five
years for increasing their fees
during the Medicare freeze
period. Non-participants will not
receive maximum reimburse-
ments from Medicare when the
freeze is over. Doctors who
missed both the original and the
grace deadlines (Oct. 1 and Oct.
9) for joining the assignment
program may still participate.
They must contact their local

ferred to the JDC's New York

was elected executive vice
chairman. He served in thst
capacity until 1976.
In recent years he served as
national chairman of the Hebrew
University Associstes Program
and as a Trustee of the Interfaith
Hunger Appeal which he helped
establish in 1978.
The myth of Masada is at
present celebrating its 50th
anniversary. Contrary to
what is accepted, it is not
2,000 years old but origi-
nated in the early 1930 s
when members of youth
movements in Eretz Israel
began to climb the mount
as an act of pilgrimage.
However, the subject of
Masada, especially the
story of the mass suicide, is
worthy of a renewed study
even if it involves
slaughtering holy cows.
As is known, evidence of the
suicide in 73 CE of 960 men,
women and children who re-
mained alone in the desert after
three years of Roman siege is not
to be found in any source except
for Josephus in "The Wars of the
Jews." Nor is there any scientific
proof of it in the extensive exca-
vations that were undertaken in
Moreover, there is apparent
evidence that the entire story as
told by Josephus especially
the speech of the rebel leader,
Eleazar Ben Ya'ir, following
which the suicides took place
never happened, and the fighters
of Mssada did not commit suicide
but fought "to the end."
IN THE Book of Josippon,
which was written in the lUtn
century CE in Southern Itsly snd
wss then considered ss the
original Josephus, it is stated,
"And it came to pass in the
morning that they took thelr
womenfolk and killed them on the
ground snd the men left the
town (Masada) and made war on
the camp of the Romans snd
countless numbers of them were
killed. And the Jews fought until
all of them died in battle, and
they died for the Lord snd his
Josippon is apparently a late
source (10th century), but he in
fact based himself on the Hege-
sippus which is a Christian
adaptation (by s Jewish convert)
of Josephus written in the 4th
Century CE in which a similar
version also appears. The ques-
tion is: is the Hegesippus based
on more reliable historical
Further, John Thackeray, who
translated Josephus into
English, wrote in hi work, "Jo-
sephus: The Man and Historian"
(1929). that the speech which Jo-
sephus put into Eleazar Ben
Ya'ir's mouth is typical of the
kind thst s number of classical
historians (for example, Thucy-
dides) put into the mouths of
their heroes ss s literary means of
expressing their own ideas, and
in his opinion the speech is
"purely imaginary." Other
scholars have expressed a similar
THESE WORDS, written as
they are today when almost
everybody believes that the myth
of Masada is 2,000 years old, snd,
as Moshe Dayan wrote shortly
before his death, "recruits of
Israel's army hold their swearing-
in ceremony on the Rock of
Masada visitors, Jewish and
non-Jewish tourists climb
Masada and hear the moving
story of the events that occurred
there 2,000 eyars ago." This
approach is surely worthy of re-
To extol the taking of one's life
by an act of suicide instead of
fighting "to the end" (as did the
brave warrior Moshe Dayan) is,
as is known, absolutely opposed
to the outlook of Judaism, which
prohibits suicide under any cir-
cumstance. Thus after the des-
truction of the Temple and
during the revolt of Bar Kochba,
we see as a symbol the sages who
"go forth to be killed" at the
hands of the Romans and "the
ten sages of Israel, who were de-
livered up to slaughter" pas-
But in no account are we told
of anyone who put an end to his
own life. It may be added that a
Jewish child who is educated in a
cheder and yeshiva and studies
the Torah, Mishna snd Gemarra
and does not thus read Josephus,
will never know anything about
Masada because the story is not
recorded in taimudical sources.
WHAT, therefore, caused Jo-
sephus to "invent" Elearar Ben
Ya'ir's speech and consequently
the scene of suicide? Many an-
swers have been given to this
question. What can be said is
thst. st all events, though Jo-
sephus's topographical descrip-
tions are reliable snd even ac-
curate (and can actually be used
at times as a- guide to Eretz
Israel), this is not the case
regarding the history sections.
These reveal the full complex-
ity of his personslity which wss
surely influenced by bis act of
treason at Jotapsts in Galilee
when as Jewish Commander of
Galilee he betrayed his comrades-
in-arms and, though partly, nder
duress, surrendered to the
Roman enemy. Later he settled in
Rome and received Roman
However, Josephus snd his
considerations do not serve our
purposes today. At a certain
stage in the revival of our
renewed homeland the myth of
Masads occupied s central place
in our life. Perhaps it testified to
the compulsive occupation with
death in all its forms, including
suicide, which because of the
history of our national effort ac-
companied the process of rebuild-
ing the homeland. The time has
come to destroy the myth snd
free ourselves from the idealiza-
tion of a suicide perpetrated for
the sake of the homeland. Just as
myths en created quite
possibly without historical foun-
dation so csn they be played
down, shelved and replaced by
more appropriate forms. There is
no lack of these in the history of
our people.
