To help keep that hope alive

Joel Reinstein, past president of

Gendin in response to a question
about his family's well being. "My
elder son was married but he is
divorced, due to our intentions."
Gendin, formerly a professor of
metallurgy, was once a division
head at the main Geophysics

published several books and scien-

despair, unable to contribute their
full talents to the Soviet Union or

that in the aftermath of the Sum-

Soviet Union may be entering a
new era of improved relation-
ships. "I am hopeful for a change
in the policy of the government of
the Soviet Union," said Shaw.
"(Gorbachev) must realize that
taking the Refusenik out of the
mainstream of Russian life is not
doing him or Russia any good."

Trouble Ahead for the Jews
BY GERSHAN GREENBAUM
Many Jews haven't the foggiest idea why anyone would hate
such nice people like us. Dr. Robert Wistrich. this year's winner of
the Rev. James Parkes Prixe here in Jerusalem, tried to help
answer this question during his talk on ideological antisemitism in
this country. His answer centers around the wild belief that the
Jews are involved in an international conspiracy whose goal is
nothing less than to take over the entire world!
The experience of hearing Professor Wistrich's compressed
brilliance was exhilarating for the brain. But to be frank, the emo-
tional impact was downright terrifying. For it wasn't enough to
merely explain the bizarre idea of a Jewish conspiracy. He had to
go on and convince us that it actually made sense!
The necessary ingredient for all this is the "trauma of moder-
nization". Even in our lifetime, we've experienced rapid social
change with its assault on traditional values. But for some, all this
change is a painful crisis which requires an explanation and a
solution. Believing it's all a Jewish plot provides both.
Here the story becomes wild. Change generates a sense of
unease which encourages the idea that we're living in an era of
decadence. In this atmosphere, millenarian beliefs that the end of
days is upon us start to gain hold. The apocalyptic version of this
has everything ending in a final war between the forces of good
and evil. Guess who the forces of evil are in the antisemitic brand?
The earlier indentifkation of Jews with the devil comes in handy
at this point. So this assault of modernity is another less than a
satanic Jewish plot to finally achieve control over the Gentiles and
thus have evil prevail. But it is the duty of the righteous to fight
this Jewish evil even unto death that good may triumph in the
The Nazis possessed the fanatical determination and the skill to
link such ideas to the possibilities of the real world. The horrifying
result was the Holocaust. But the belief in a Jewish conspiracy did
not end with the defeat of the Nazis. Rather, it continued on as a
land of Hitlerian legacy, according to Dr. Wistrich. It has since
passed into other "Salvationist" political movements bent on sav-
ing the world from a terrible evil.
Islamic Fundamentalism is one recipient of the antisemitic
legacy. The encounter with modernity in the Islamic world was all
the more painful because it was first experienced as part of the
subjugation to Western colonial rule. Therefore, a fierce rejection
of Western influence is one of the features of the Islamic Fun-
damentalist response to the modernization trauma.
But Israel and the Jews have a central role to play as part of the
broad picture. In these countries, the granting of equal rights to
the Jews was not the result of an international development of
Moslem culture but was rather an act taken by the colonial
powers. The Jews were thus connected in the popular mind with
the Islamic debasement at the hands of the West. And Zionism,
seen as the foisting of Israel upon the world by the West, has
come to symbolize the ultimate humiliation of Moslem pride. In a
deeper sense, the continued existence of the Jewish State is a
symptom of the crisis of Moslem culture and is seen as "the
deepest symbolic representation of the decadence of Islam."
Israel's destruction is necessary to complete the elimination of
alien influences from the Moslem corporation. This is a prere-
quisite for the lslamk revival. So in Islamic Fundamentalism,
there is a broad symbolic identification of Israel and the Jews with
an evil that must be destroyed.
The other major beneficiary of Hitler's legacy mentioned by Dr.
Wistrich is the Soviet Union. But this regime was meant to be the
culmination of the idealistic intellectual tradition of the Left! How
could it possibly have turned into a world center for the propaga-
tion of "reactionary" antisemitism? Dr. Wistrich gives us a dear
explanation for this development which marked one of the
highlights of his talk.
Put simply, the old Communist ideology was losing its appeal.
The same old fight against Imperialism and Wall Street
Capitalism was no longer that inspiring. An addition was needed
to add some pazazz. Antisemitism was a natural for the job since
it was never totally uprooted from Russian society in the first
place. It was Stalin who first came up with the cosmetic replace-
ment of the word "Jew" with "Zionist." This was in fact a clever
ploy in a Western world which still remembered the stench of
holocaustal murder. So beginning in the 1950s, the idea of a
"Zionist" conspiracy to dominate the world was grafted on to the
older ideology in Soviet propaganda, even gaining the upper hand
For the Soviets, the Jewish conspiracy theory has
demonstrated its usefulness and versatility. In the foreign policy
arena, for instance, third world countries have proven to be sur-
prisingly attracted to the idea, once it has been properly packag-
ed. In the wake of development failures in many of these coun-
tries, there is a ready market for a conspiracy explanation which
pins the blame on outside Zionist-Imperialist machinations aimed
at thwarting the success of third world Liberation.
But in a more essential way, the belief in a Jewish conspiracy is
an extremely useful tool employed by the Soviets to help motivate
the drive toward world hegemony. No other tenet can quite com-
pete in effectiveness with the notion that there is this incredibly
powerful satanic force aimed at overthrowing Communism,
dominating Capitalism and liquidating third world Liberation.
The natural corollary to this argument is that one thing only is
preventing this evil force from winning out and that is Soviet
As a qualifier, however. Dr. Wistrich emphasizes that the
Soviet version does differ from Nazi antisemitism. It is not a total
ideology which constitutes the raison d'etre of the regime. Nor is
it of the way out "end of days" variety. This raises the hope that
the Jews might be able to work out some modus vivendi with the
Soviets in the future, particularly if East-West relations improve.
In such a situation, while the antisemitic element in Soviet pro-
paganda might lessen, due to its extreme usefulness, it would not
But events at some future time could also take a turn for the
worse should anti-Jewish personalities ever gain a position of
outright control in the Soviet hierarchy. This has never yet hap-
pened, but if it did, it might spur a radical solution to the Soviet
Jewish "problem", resulting in the forced removal of jews from
the Russian heartland.
To sum up, Dr. Wistrich has argued the creative but controver-
sial thesis that despite the dramatic ideological incompatibilties
between Nazism, Soviet Communism and Islamic Fundamen
talism, they have very much in common when it comes to their an-
tisemitism. As a response to the crisis of modernity and as a tool
to achieve world influence if not domination, each movement has
conjured up the notion of a Jewish conspiracy to control the world
which is seen as an evil that must be fought.
How is one to properly interpret these remarks seem to
demonstrate the sobering if not depressing proposition that the
world continues to be a dangerous place for Jews. In light of this
fact, one member of the audience with whom I spoke after the
talk expressed the hope that diaspora Jews would recognize the
danger and speedily ingather themselves under the protecting
care of the Israel Defense Forces. He also expressed opposition to
Israel making any political concessions that might lessen its
But Dr. Wistrich cautions aganist a "gloom and doom" inter-
pretation of his remarks. He emphatically denies that his analysis
implies a rigid intransigent policy for Israel toward the Arabs and
the Palestinian problem. On the contrary, the common threat of
Islamic Fundamentalism for both Israel and the Arab nationalist
leaders can act as an added incentive for both to reach an
There are also more general reasons for avoiding hysteria.
While his talk was about ideology, in the real world, it is seldom
that ideological power rarely has a free hand and is almost always
counterbalanced by the opposing forces. This might help explain
how during the same period that antisemitic ideologies have
flourished and the fortunes of Western Jews rose dramatically.
Lastly, Dr. Wistrich holds firmly to the belief that, in the long
run. things will work out O.K. for the Jews. But until then, with
propaganda about the Jewish conspiracy circling the globe, one
wonders what nightmares await us.
Robert Wistrich's new book on the subject is called Hitler's
Apocalypse: Jews and the Nazi Legacy to be published in New
York by St. Martin's Press (March 1986)
Grrskon Greenbaum, an alumnus of the University of Penn-
sylvania and Brandeis University, is currently studying at the In-
stitute of Contemporary Jewry in Jerusalem.
Shortly after Rabbi Meir
Kahane was elected to the
Knesset, he submitted a number
of bills aimed at imposing restric-
tions on non-Jews. Only Jews
would be able to be citizens of the
State, for example, and a non-Jew
having sexual relations with a
Jewish woman would be imprison-
ed. MKs from all parties said the
proposals bore a striking
resemblance to the infamous
Nuremberg race laws. The
Speaker of the Knesset, Shlomo
Hillel, asked the House Commit-
tee to authorize him to refuse to
submit any bill of a racist
character, to expel from the
chamber any MK who made a
racist remark; and to strike that
remark off the record. At that
time the House Committee agreed
unanimously. However, Kahane
took the issue to the High Court of
Justice, which ruled in his favor
on the grounds that the action of
the Knesset presidium was not an-
chored in the House rules. So the
House Committee reconvened to
amend the House rules, but at this
point the Likud and Tehiya party
representatives demanded that
certain other categories of bills
also be disqualified, for example,
bills which "strike at the roots of
The Knesset finally voted to
prohibit the presidium from tak-
ing any private member's bill that
"is racist in nature or negates the
existence of the State of Israel as
the state of the Jewish people."

NEW YORK (JTA) The

Gen. Ephraim Lapid, chief
spokesman ofthe Israel Defense

ped armies in the Middle East,
with sophisticated Soviet arms as
well as helicopters and missiles
from France and communications
systems from Italy, Lapid said in
an interview during a recent visit

army has doubled its power since

tanks, 600 jets and about a half-
million troops. In addition, Syria

surface Soviet missile SS-21. and

"Both missiles have an enor-
mous range, and they pose,
therefore, a real threat to Israel's
population centers in the heart of
the country and to Israeli aircraft
flying far away from the Syrian
border." said the IDF spokesman.
"The real question is whether
Syria and Jordan will form a coali-
tion against Israel," because
Israel assumes that Syria alone
will not open a war against Israel,
Asked if Israel is still the best
army in the Mideast. L&pid
replied, "absolutely." He said this
was proved during the Lebanon
"But I do not underestimate the
enemy," Lapid continued. "The

itself during the war, and the
Syrian soldier was a much better
fighter in 1982 than in the Yom

Look Into 1986 A Busy Year for Jewry
The year 1986 will be a busy
year for American Jewish
organizations, especially on the
the fight for unhampered
Jewish emigration from the
Soviet Union will be conducted
with more intensity since Mikhail
Gorbachev, the Soviet leader, did
apparently not agree with Presi-
dent Reagan's request to open the
gates of the USSR for Jewish
emigration on a large scale in the
spirit of the Helsinki act on human
rights, which the Soviet govern-
ment signed in 1975.
Intensive action of Jewish
organizations against Reagan's
proposed sale of American arms
including advanced planes and
missiles to Jordan Congress
postponed decision on this pro-
posal until March 1 to await
response from King Hussein as to
whether he is willing to negotiate
peace with Israel directly, without
the participation of Yasir Arafat's
terrorist PLO organization. Deep-
ly interested in the security of
Israel, American Jewry will con-
tinue to oppose Reagan's pro-
posal, until peace negotiations are
started by Hussein with Israel
directly perhaps with the par-
ticipation of Palestinians from the
West Bank, but with not par-
ticipation of PLO representatives.
The possible effects on
American-Israel relations when
Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir
who is now Israel's Foreign
Minister will take over
Premiership from Shimon Peres,
the Labor Party leader. An agree-
ment between the two leading
groups in Israel's parliamentary
stipulates that Peres is to serve as
Prime Minister for the first half of
the government's 50-month term
and Shamir for the second half.
There are sharp differences in the
attitude of each of the two
political leaders with regard to the
West Bank issue and other impor-
tant issues in which the U.S.
government is interested as part'
of its efforts to bring about peace
in the Middle East. Shamir is con-
sidered in Washington as being
more extreme and less flexible

New York Gov. Mario M.

Congress at the Pierre Hotel in
Cuomo addressed an audience
of 300 gathered for the presenta-
tion of the 1985 Stephen S. Wise

Wilpon, chairman of the board of
Sterling Equities and president of
the New York Mets. Cuomo was
honored for his "lifelong commit-

"The American Jewish Con-
gress reminds us constantly that
one of the bases for our
democracy is the rejection by law
of the notion that any formal
philosophical or religious test
should be used to grant or
withhold the rights of citizen-
ship," Cuomo said.
"The truth is that some people
see a very different fundamental
principle, one that is contradic-
tory of this freedom. They tell us
that to be strong as a nation, we
must return to what they say we
were meant to be a Christian
nation. The idea that religion and
politics don't mix, Rev. (Jerry)
Falwell says, was invented by the
devil to keep Christians from run-
ning their country."
The Christian nation concept,
Cuomo went on, "is a perversion
of our Constitution and a
dangerous one for all people who
believe that our greatest gift and
our greatest strength is the right
to choose what we will be and
what we will believe."
He cited the recurrence in U.S.
history of a "nativist sentiment"
calling on people to stop being
what they are in order to become
"real Americans." The governor
remarked that the immigrants
who fought and died for America
"never forgot who they were and
where they came from They
never gave up their language or

A Visit to the Soviet Union
By JERRY KIEWE
Assistant Regional Director
BBYO Gold Coast Council
Over the past summer I and
three of my close friends and col-
leagues had the unique opportuni-
ty to travel to the USSR. We
stayed five days each in both Len-
ingrad and Moscow and during
that time were able to meet with
13 refusenik families there. All of
those that we met exhibited a
spirit and courage which touched
us deeply and the memories of our
time with them will forever re-
main imbedded in our minds and
in our hearts.
In most cases our first contact
was a phone call. My three friends
and I were strangers, faceless
voices at the other end of a
telephone wire. But somehow
they sensed the sincerity in our
words and they knew that we
were friends, brothers and sisters
from across the ocean.
Sometimes we went in pairs,
other times all four at once. But
they never seemed to mind. No
matter what the number they
always opened their doors, their
homes and their hearts to us.
At every horrje they insisted
that we have tea with them. "A
Russian custom," they explained.
Often there were biscuits or cakes
or assorted other foods. On
several occasions, particularly on
Shabbat, we were even served en-
Accompanying the food was an
endless exchange of information,
sometimes in English, sometimes
in Hebrew, and sometimes in a
mixture of both. The topics rang-
Jews in the USSR
By CARL KOHN (International Sh'licha)
If we forget them ... the world will forget them!
The voice of Soviet Jews is heard far beyond the borders of the
USSR, and it has found a repsonse in the hearts of many millions
of Jews and non-Jews throughout the world. There are attempts
to muffle, to stop this voice so that the world will not know what is
happening to Soviet Jews. This is achieved by disconnecting the
telephones in the apartments of Soviet Jews, by not delivering
their mail, by preventing them from meeting their friends from
the west. Tyranny does not like publicity. No matter what the
aims of the authorities are, the Jews of the USSR will go on strug-
gling for their rights: for the right to leave the country freely in
order to become reunited with their people in Israel and for the
right to maintain close ties with Jewish communities throughout
This struggle would be unthinkable without the support of the
whole Jewish people and their friends. If we forget them ... the
world will forget them.
The following are facts concerning Soviet religious and cultural
oppression of Jews:
FACT: Of the 119 different nationalities in the Soviet Union, 118
have their own cultural institutions, theatres, printing houses and
publications in their native languages, schools, and instructions
mtheir national language. Only the Jews, the 12th largest na-
tional minority in the USSR, are denied these rights
FACT: Not one book on Jewish history, except for a series deal-
ing with the ancient period, has been published in the USSR since
1930, according to a letter to the Soviet Communist Party from
125 leading Soviet Jewish activists. Books on Jewish subjects
published overseas are not sold in the USSR and Jewish books are
often confiscated from foreign tourists by Soviet customs
FACT: Although Jews have lived in the area of the USSR for
2,000 years, and had become the largest Jewish community in the
world until this century, there is not one museum dealing with
Jewish history, culture, or ethnography, and no existing Soviet
museum has a special section dealing with these subjects. Not a
single paragraph about Jews appears in school textbooks.
FACT: According to a 1926 survey, over 1,000 synagogues
operated in the USSR. Today, they number about 50. It is not un-
common to find a synagogue closed or barricaded by the KGB to
prevent entry. None of the remaining synagogues have been per-
mitted to join with other synagogues in regional or international
associations. The Soviet Union has no operating seminary to train
FACT: Jewish children are not allowed to receive formal religious
instruction in the USSR.
The facts have been presented and our efforts on behalf of
Soviet Jews are only just beginning. This concern is an ongoing,
continuing challenge and responsibility. All of our activity is for
the purpose of enabling Soviet Jews to live in freedom and to en-
joy the opportunity to teach their children and raise them as Jews.
This is our goal; this is what we must strive to achieve!

One talked to us with a sense of
urgency about a recent trial of his
friend in Leningrad .. another
chatted with us about the
popularity of tennis in Moscow.
We discussed Reagan and the re-
cent summit. .. and we discussed
religion and its role in our lives.
And always, always, we talked
Oh, how th'jy yearn for Israel!
Despite all of the propaganda (or
perhaps because of it) they still
love her, and despite all of the pro-
blems they still want to go there.
They have no illusions; they
realize that life there will be dif-
ficult. But this makes no dif-
ference. It is still Eretz Yisrael. It
is still Home.
Am Yisrael Chai! This was but
one of the many songs that we
sang with them. Yerushalayim
She! Zahav, Shema Yisrael, Or
Zarua, Hiney Ma Tov, Lo Yisah
Goy El Goy ... on and on they
went. We lost ourselves in song,
for the songs brought out our
emotions, our happiness, our
laughter and our love for one
another. And on the final night, in
the late hours of the evening, the
songs brought out our tears, tears
from a grandmother, overjoyed
that her grandson could at last
sing songs of Israel. And tears
from us, for the end of our trip
had finally arrived.
It was an end we dreaded, for
we knew what would happen. We
would walk away and head
towards the airport. and they
would remain behind.
In the USSR.
In a land where they are
Among a people that do not
And at the mercy of a state
which pushes them away with one
hand, yet keeps a firm grip on
them with the other.
I wanted so much to change
places with them. I wanted so bad-
ly to reach into my carry bag and
hand them my tickets "Take
these," I wanted to say. "Go to
Israel, your homeland, the land
you have dreamed of all your lives.
Take these tickets and go!"
But we all realized that this
would be futile.
Over and over I asked myself,
"Why must it be this way? By
what right to they keep you here?
And why you and not me?" Such
questions still await an answer.
But they bore us no ill will.
There was no hint of jealousy in
their*words or in their eyes. On
the contrary they were happy
for us! We were simply going
home to live out our lives as they
were meant to be lived, in
freedom and happiness.
Before leaving we asked them
each what we could do to help
them. The specific requests varied
from person to person, but there
was one thing that was asked by
all that we tell the story to
others. "Tell your community, tell
your government, tell the world,"
they asked. "Tell them what you
saw and heard here, tell them
what is happening to us."
My friends, we cannot forsake
them. Their cause is our cause,
and we cannot rest until the last of
them is free. The world must hear
about them; we must not let them
forget. Somehow, some way, we
must help them to return Home.
As the new year continues I urge
each of you to re-examine the
commitment that your youth
leadership has made to the cause
of Soviet Jewry. Come next year's
Judgement Day, we should all be
able to faithfully answer "yes" to
the question, "Have we done all
that we could?"

DEAR UJA PARTICIPANTS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS
Yehuda Kinde (Ofakim)
When I completed elementary school, I went to Gondar to study
in high school. I had to live five kilometers away, in Wollecka,
where the Jewish community lives.
From high school, I completed teacher training.
After 13 years as a teacher in Jewish schools in Gondar, I decid-
ed to go to Israel because it is my homeland and many Ethiopian
Jews left to go there. Even my parents told me to leave my place
and go through the Sudan. I said I will not go now until all the
Ethiopian Jews go out. But it became hard to stay for a long time
because of the condition of the country.
I asked the Higher Commission for permission to study abroad
for four years. Finally, I succeeded in leaving the country from
Addis Ababa to Khartoum, then to Cairo and finally to Israel.
When I arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport, people were waiting and
took me to the absorption center where I live now.
In the absorption center, we received the things we use and
they showed us how to use things in the house, how to buy
groceries, how to use the money and banks.
From the day we arrived up to now, we received money from
the Sochnut (Jewish Agency) for food as well as for the necessary
things. We are learning the Hebrew language in the Ulpan. We
receive medical treatment whenever we are sick. Our children are
studying in school properly. They are well and learn.
We are trying to be good citizens in our homeland, in the State
of Israel. But, on the other hand, we always think of the people
who are still in Ethiopia, because we are hearing tha they are not
in a good condition. They are under problems and they are sen-
ding letters to their families who arrived earlier. We are crying
every day for them.

Jewish Agency Working Hard to Limit
Short and Long Term Employment in Israel
ment has become a major short
and long term problem in Israel,
but the Jewish Agency is working
hard to solve it.
The Jewish Agency is helping
limit unemployment by job train-
ing and placement programs for
new immigrants, Youth Aliyah
teenagers and residents in
distressed neighborhoods. It aids
Moshavim in economic difficulty
and deserving university
Now the agency's settlement
study center has developed a ten-
year plan that will help Israel
restructure its economy and
create jobs needed into the 21st
century. The plan would provide
comprehensive economic and
social development focusing on 13
development towns, but radiating
regionally to include 272 nearby
kibbutzim and moshavim.
Development towns include 10
percent of Israel's population, but
40 percent of its jobless.
Of the 13 towns, all have project
renewal neighborhoods, including
eight twinned to U.S. Jewish com-
munities. They are: Bet Shean
(Los Angeles), Kiryat Gat
(Baltimore), Maalot (Pennsylvania
Cluster), Kiryat Malachi (San
Diearo). Safad (New Jersey Cluster
nmaej nnsj-mnn j-piun
and Oakland), Kiryat Shmona
(San Francisco and Richmond),
Shderot (Buffalo, Rochester and,
Niagara Falls, New York) and Bet
The plan would cost $860
million over ten years with
Israel's national and local govern-
ments bearing most of the cost, in-
cluding to finance industrial
development. The Jewish agency
would provide $10 million each
year, to provide for vocational
training, community and public
facilities, and water, gas, electrici-
ty and transportation systems.
The project has been initiated at
Bet Shemesh, 30 miles southwest
of here, but so far it has been
funded onlv bv the local regional
council. The Israeli government is
reducing expenditures this year to
limit debt growth and currency
But American Jews can support
employment programs, long-term
development programs such as at
the center and critical research by
contributing now to the Federa-
tion Campaign/United Jewish Ap-
peal. Funds are needed in regular
campaign and renewal.

THE BEST WAT TO SEE ISRAEL
IS NOT AVAILABLE
TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give

Garbage Can of History
On November 10, 1975, by a
vote of 72 to 35 (with 32 absten-
tions), the United Nations
adopted resolution No. 3379
equating Zionism with racism.
That day of infamy culminated
in Israel's ambassador to the
UN, Chaim Herzog, today the
country's president, tearing the
text of the resolution into shreds
on the podium of the General
Assembly. Other than the im-
mediate political benefits reaped
by the Arabs and their Soviet
supporters, it did not seem con-
ceivable at the time that the
movement for Jewish national
liberation could ever be thought
by intelligent people tobe
anything less than one of the
world's most enlightened,
Leon Riflcin delighted the participants of the Kosher Nutrition
Program situated at the Jewish Community Center with his
energetic and witty Yiddish renditions. Anyone who would like to
share their talents with a very receptive audience, please call San-
dy Friedland, Director of Elderly Services, 797-0831.

ve been quite depressed
o very long
\nd I've come to feel
that it's very wrong.
Time goes by
and 1 still seem sad,
Nothing of value
makes me feel glad.
There was a time
when I used to enjoy
As a little child
with a Chanuka toy.
When 1 was up north
things were better for me,
Barring bridges, tokens
and a parking fee.
'osts go up,
my income goes down
And the grocer and landlord

And my TV snacking
is getting me fat.
hear from children
only once in awhile,
And I've come to accept
that it's part of their style.
I had so many friends
in my home state,
And I never really dreamed
of my awaited fate.
I sleep very poorly
I toss all night
And I find, myself waiting
for dawns early light.
I sometimes think
of when I'll die
A morbid thought
it makes me sigh.
I want so badly
to regain my composure,
To feel better about life
to regain social exposure.
It's time to be positive
it's time to plan,
It's time that I move
and lend life a helping hand.

democratic and fundamentally
just movements. The manifet
Tightness of the Zionist cause led
Jewish and Israeli leaders alike
to underestimate the dangerous
consequences of the resolution
and they expected that it would
sink into well-deserved
In retrospect, it is clear that
complacency allowed the Big Lie
to gather a momentum of its
own and, for want of a concerted
effort to forestall its insidious
impact, the lie took root and like
a malignant growth began to
spread almost unchecked. When
the effects eventually became all
too apparent, a belated but in-
tensive international campaign,
initiated and coordinated by the
World Zionist Organization, got
underway. Major gatherings
were convened to refute the in-
famous slander in Jerusalem,
Paris, Washington, London,
Geneva, Caracas and other
centers. The effort culminated
on the tenth anniversary of the
original resolution with the
presentation in New York of a
petition in support of Zionism to
UN Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellas (see P. 4). The
United States Senate and Con-
gress had previously adopted a
resolution calling for strong ac-
tion against the UN resolution
and appealing to all democratic
parliaments to take similar
Among the 800 prominent per-
sonalities from 27 countries who
signed the petition were
presidents, prime ministers,
statesmen, Nobel prize winners,
philosophers and scientists.
There is no precedent for the
UN reversing one of its own
resolutions so there is little
likelihood that the Zionism-
equals-racism equation will be
officially repudiated especially
when that less-than-august body
can ensure a virtually automatic
majority for any anti-Israeli
resolution, however weird or ex-
treme. Nevertheless, the cam-
paign to fight the delegitimiza-
tion of Zionism (which is no less
than an attempt to delegitimize
the Jewish State itself) cannot
be relaxed until the notorious
resolution is consigned to the
garbage can of history where it
