Conference President Reports:
Bush Rates High
Marks on Israel
While President Bush's first
100 days in office have been
getting generally unenthusias-
tic reviews, a Jewish leader
said that the president should
receive 98 percent approval
for his policy toward the Mid-
dle East and Israel.
Seymour Reich, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations, said the reason
he did not give the president a
100 percent rating is Bush's
public call for an end to Israeli
occupation of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, which he
issued during Egyptian Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak's visit to
the White House last month.
While Bush's remarks were
"consistent with prior policy,"
the context in which it was
made "was harsh," since the
president did not provide his-
torical background about why
Israel administers the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, Reich
His comments were made to
reporters at a National Press
Club breakfast on the eve of
the 41st anniversary of the
State of Israel.
"Israel occupies these terri-
tories, not because of aggres-
sion that it engaged in, but
because of defensive actions
that it had to take as a result of
wars begun by neighboring
Arab countries," he said.
Reich, who is also president
of B'nai B'rith International,
praised Bush for having "reaf-
firmed the basic alliance that
exists between the United
States and Israel, militarily,
culturally, strategically."
The president was also
lauded for telling Mubarak
that he did not favor an inter-
national peace conference
until there are "positive ac-
complishments" in the Middle
Reich was especially pleased
that Bush supports a step-by-
step approach in the Middle
East and has embraced Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's proposal for elections in
the territories to allow Pales-
tinians to choose representa-
tives for negotiations with
Israel on self-rule.
The Jewish leader also gave
high marks to Shamir and his
election proposal. "The over-
whelming number of American
Jews and Jewish organiza-
tional life is supportive of this
election process, he said, con-
tending that "opponents are a
distinct minority."
Past divisions in the Ameri-
can Jewish community over
Israel were the result of a
situation in which the Israeli
government spoke with two
voices, that of Shamir and that
of Shimon Peres. "It is now

What PLO leader Yasir
Arafat told French President
Francois Mitterrand in Paris
two weeks ago "is not enough
to convince the Israelis of the
PLO's sincerity, because he
expressed his personal view
and not that of the whole,
entire Palestinian movement,"
Clark said.
He was referring, among
other things, to Arafat's state-
ment that the 1964 Palestine
National Covenant, which calls
for the destruction of Israel, is
"null and void."
Clark, who on March 13
authorized Canadian diplo-
mats to meet with PLO repre-
sentatives, also stressed that
"Canada must encourage
those elements favorable to
Arafat inside the PLO, be-
cause if they fail in their
efforts, the radicals will take
over, and we don't like them."

A rally protesting allegedly biased reporting on the situation in the Middle East was held
in front of The Miami Herald building in downtoum Miami. An estimated 150-200 protesters,

incidents of alleged bias. Other participants included representatives of Americans for a Safe

Jewish Heritage Week
Reinstated At White House
Jewish Heritage Week was
commemorated at the White
House, marking a return of the
observance to 1600 Pennsylva-
nia Avenue.
The annual week, sponsored
by the Jewish Community
Relations Council of New
York, had not been marked
with a White House ceremony
since April 1985.
It was at that ceremony that
then President Reagan was
strongly criticized by Holo-
caust survivor Elie Wiesel for
planning to visit the Bitburg
military cemetery in West Ger-
many, where Nazi Waffen SS
soldiers are buried.

Israeli Fiscal Crunch
and U. S. Aid
Friday, May 26, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 3
Democratic members of the
House Foreign Affairs and
Appropriations committees
assured Jewish leaders here
that Israel's $3 billion in yearly
foreign aid remains secure.
But they warned that bud-
getary pressures may build
against the aid package in the
not-too-distant future.
The solution, in what one of
the four representatives ac-
knowledged was an "intensely
Cisan" appeal, is to help the
locratic Party retain its
majority within the House of
Speaking here before the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations were Reps. Dante
Fascell (D-Fla.), chairman of
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee; Mel Levine (D-
Calif.) and Larry Smith (D-
Fla.), members of the commit-
tee; and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.),
member of the House Appro-
priations Committee.
They appeared at the invita-
tion of the Conference of Pres-
idents, as part of what Mal-
colm Hoenlein, its executive
director, called an ongoing ser-
ies of briefings with top con-
gressional leaders.
The umbrella group has pre-
viously met with Republican
Party Chairman Lee Atwater,
and will meet with his Demo-
cratic counterpart, Ron
Brown, on June 19.
"I don't know of a single
issue in this rewrite of the
foreign aid bill that would
directly affect Israel in any
way," said Fascell, like the
others a staunch supporter of

lem is we don't have any

States for $3 billion in aid for

across-the-board cuts to other
U.S. Ambassador William
Brown told reporters that,
because of inflation, Israel had
effectively accepted a cut in
aid this year by not increasing
its request from last year.
Levine said Israel's share
under the foreign aid and
State Department authoriza-
tion bills is secure, but that
defending it is "going to
become more difficult than in
the recent past."
He said support for Israel is
not strictly a partisan issue
and praised the Reagan admin-
istration for its support of
Israel. But he said the "jury is
still out" on the Bush adminis-
tration. He asked the leaders
to make sure that "support is

Procrastination and the PLO
There is no real cause for jubilation in the
news that the World Health Organization has
postponed for one year the decision as to
whether or not to admit the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization as a member-state.
The lobbying from Third World nations as
well as the United States and Israel had as
much to do with political leverage and funding
or more so than it did with policy and
The fact that the U.S. threatened to with-
draw its substantial underwriting to the
tune of $74 million from the WHO fiscal
budget, was the lubrication that greased the
The judgment is no resolution; it is merely
an expedient maneuver with money not
morality at its core.
And in Other Quarters
On the heels of the Palestine Liberation
Organization seeking legitimization through
membership in world bodies despite its lack
of requisite criteria an Arab country collea-
gue is attempting to further its questionable
cause in other quarters.
Saudi Arabia is endeavoring to oust the
State of Israel from the International Tele-
communications Union.
In tandem with that effort, the nation states
of Qatar, Syria and Saudi Arabia are suggest-
ing as an alternative, the suspension, if not the
expulsion, of the Jewish state from that body.
While international agencies count this lat-
est move abhorrent and quasi-diplomatic, we
call it a politically base venture with no
precedent: the International Telecommunica-
tions Union doesn't even have a provision for
expelling a member-state!
PLO Redundancy
Yasir Arafat made the news last week for
his use of familiar rhetoric.
The Palestinian Liberation Organization
Chairman suggested, in French, that his PLO
covenant was "null and void" as it related to
Seems the charter itself uses the same
language: Article 19 reads that the existence
of the State of Israel is null and void.
A Compulsion to Repeat the Past?
An Opposing View...
A Massachusetts psychia-
trist, using psychoanalytic
approaches to evaluate the
Israeli response to the Pales-
tinian uprising, has warned
that it must free itself "from
the compulsion to repeat the
past" if peace is ever to be
That analysis and recom-
mendation were made by Ste-
ven Adelman, who teaches
psychiatry at the University of
Massachusetts Medical Center
at Worcester and who holds
dual U.S. and Israeli citizen-
ship. He discussed his psycho-
logical approach to the Israeli-
Palestinian impasse in a recent
issue of Sh'ma, the independ-
ent Jewish journal.
Adelman declared that the
historical record of unending
attacks on Jews, culminating
in the European Holocaust and
the murderous Arab assaults
on Jews before and after state-
hood, had compelled Israel to
acquire the tools considered
essential for survival.
Adelman said these tools
"a thick skin, vigilance, cun-
ning and suspiciousness"
constituted "street smarts,"
which he said served Israel
well during the 1950s and
But things changed with
Rise in Cost-of-Living
TEL AVIV (JTA) A sharp, unexpected 2.6 percent hike in
the cost-of-living index for April came as an unpleasant surprise
to Treasury officials when it was announced.
They hastened to blame seasonal factors, not economic
measures taken by the government.
The figures, reported by the Central Bureau of Statistics, were
well above the less than two percent rise anticipated for the
month. Inflation is now running at an annual rate of 9.4 percent.
The price index would have been kept within "reasonable
limits," Treasury officials said, were it not for seasonal rises in
the prices of clothing, footwear, fruits and vegetables.
Jewish Moridian
Israel's impressive military
victory in the 1967 Six-Day
War, which "propelled Israel
into adulthood, suddenly, per-
haps prematurely."
For Israeli Jews, "living by
the sword was transformed '
by that stunning victory "from
a survival mechanism into a
seemingly effective technique
for achieving a variety of
national, spiritual, territorial
and economic objectives."
The psychiatrist added that
in addition to meeting "prag-
matic needs," occupation of
the territories seized during
the Six-Day War and the "sub-
jugation" of the Arab popula-
tion "addressed deeper collec-
tive psychological needs of the
Israeli people."
He dismissed as "fantasy"
what he called the Israeli belief
that the Palestinian Arabs
"could be mollified" by hu-
mane policies to "the point of
wanting to remain forever
under Israeli rule."
He added that an under-
standing that the Israeli Jews
had such a fantasy "clarifies
the psychological issues which
have helped to perpetuate the
Israeli occupation."
"Haunted by memories and
ghosts of recent and past per-
secutions," Israel s Jews
"naively believed" they could
rewrite their history "by
dominating another people in a
manner they considered to be
gentle and humane this was
their attitude in the early
years" of the occupation.
If the "benign occupation"
had worked, Adelman declar-1
ed, the Israeli Jews "might
have been able to purge from

When the Israeli dream of I

Reich said.
"I think that the American
Jewish community is solidify-

ish leader said. "They are say-
ing, 'Give this man a chance.
Let him stand or fall, his gov-
ernment, based on his ability
to bring peace to the region.' "
Reich said the elections in
the territories would provide
an interim period of autonomy
that would allow "some living
together in peace to see whe-
ther these peoples can indeed
share a common area without
the threat of war and terror-
But he stressed that the elec-
tions "have to be conducted in
a free atmosphere of speech
without the threat of violence
or intimidation." He said those

for the Bush administration's
warning that if the Palestine

admitted to the World Health
Organization, the United
States will cut off funds to that

"For the PLO to come into the
United Nations through the
back door does not enhance
the cause of peace," he said.

Foreign Press
Defends Use of
Press Credentials
Foreign Press Association
rejected the Israeli govern-
ment's criticism of reporters
accepting press cards issued
by the Palestinian Press
Office. The cards have been
issued to journalists covering
events in the administered ter-
Right-wing Knesset mem-
bers sharply criticized foreign
correspondents who use the
cards, saying they should be
thrown out of the country.
Police Minister Haim Bar-Lev
said he would investigate poss-
ible illegalities connected with
the issuing of the cards.
The FPA responded to the
government saying that re-
porters had accepted the cards
for their own safety. Israeli
police posing as journalists and
using counterfeit press creden-
tials in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip had put them in
danger, the association said.
The Palestinian Press Office
reportedly has issued 100 ID
cards to foreign journalists.

The Evolution of U.S. -Israel Relations
Two days before Israel
declared its independence, the
American State Department
was still fighting against the
I'nited Nations' partition de-
cision. Our officials at the UN
were trying to manufacture a
trusteeship proposal to replace
partition. Meanwhile, the Jews
of Palestine were already
fighting under the disadvan-
tage of the U.S.-imposed arms
embargo. In other words, the
I'nited States was not the un-
equivocal supporter of the
Jewish state that critics con-
Despite opposition from
the Pentagon and State
pepartment, Harry Truman
did recognize Israel almost
immediately after indepen-
dence was declared. He did not
lift the arms embargo, but he
did make a number of other
crucial decisions that helped
the new state survive. In the
succeeding four decades, U.S.-
Israel relations have evolved
from what might be termed
U'nign friendship to allies.
Ike's Suez Mistake
The Eisenhower administra-
tion's support for Israel was at
best lukewarm. Economic aid
was extended and a trickle of
secret, relatively insignificant
arms shipments were made,
but there was little else to
indicate an alliance. Eisen-
hower refused to support
Israel's war to counter Egyp-
tian aggression, but did com-
pel Israel to withdraw from
the Sinai without obtaining a
peace agreement, thereby set-
ting the stage for future con-
John Kennedy took a
greater interest in Arab-
Israeli peace than his prede-
cessor for whom concern for
containing the Soviet Union
was paramount. Kennedy
approved, once again over
State Department objections,
the first major arms sale to
Israel anti-aircraft missiles
needed to offset the Russian
bombers supplied to Egypt.
Circumstances prevented Ken-
nedy from devoting more
energy to the Middle East; the
Berlin and Cuban Missile
crises as well as domestic
affairs kept him occupied dur-
ing his all too short tenure.
1968: A Turning Point
Lyndon Johnson was respon-
sible for the United States
abandoning its reluctance to
side openly and decisively with
Israel. Initially, he too was
hesitant and initiated the first
sales of offensive weapons
only after the West Germans
were forced by Arab pressure
to stop their supplies to Israel.
Subsequently, Johnson was
outspoken in his support for
Israel's right to respond to
Nasser's aggression, though
he still was not prepared to use
American's military might to
back the Jewish state. As it
turned out, of course, Israel
did not need help.
The real turning point
occurred in 1968 when John-
son agreed to sell Phantom
jets to Israel. This was the first
sale of sophisticated offensive
weapons and marked a funda-
mental change in U.S. policy
from the desire to maintain a
balance of power between
Israel and the Arabs to provid-

Question: "Do you think that the United States should
increase or decrease the amount of military and economic

"i *> V IN*
ing Israel with a qualitative
The evolution continued
under the Nixon administra-
tion as the amount of aid and
arms provided to Israel in-
creased substantially and the
commitment to Israel's secur-
ity strengthened. The test
came in October 1973, when
the United States airlifted crit-
ical war supplies to Israel. The
armistice negotiations that fol-
lowed established the United
States as the guarantor of
peace and the only foreign
power capable of exerting
influence on both Arabs and
Carter Brokers Peace Treaty
Jimmy Carter did not seem
to understand how to balance
U.S. interest in Israel with
those of the Arab world;
nevertheless, he did build on
Anwar Sadat's dramatic jour-
ney to Jerusalem by bringing
the Egyptian leader together
with Menachem Begin to sign
the first Arab-Israeli peace
treaty. The U.S. guarantees
accompanying that agreement
further solidified the U.S.-
Israel alliance.
Ronald Reagan became the
first President to publicly
maintain that Israel is a strate-
gic asset to the United States
and institutionalized that rela-
tionship by signing a series of
agreements increasing the
level of strategic cooperation.
In addition, economic relations
improved as a result of the
Free Trade Agreement elimi-
nating tariffs between the two
nations. As a result of congres-
sional leadership and support,
by the end of Reagan's term,
U.S. economic and military aid
to Israel reached $3 billion, a
far cry from 1948 when the
United States embargoed
arms and gave Israel a $100
million loan.
There have been ups and
downs in every administration,
but the former have become
the norm as the U.S.-Israel
relationship has grown from
cautious support to a de facto
alliance. This partnership
between the United States and
its one reliable ally in the
Middle East was solidified by
the Reagan administration
working closely with Congress
and provides a foundation on
which George Bush can build.

Assembly Reaffirms Stand
Against Female Cantors
(JTA) For the second year in
a row, the Cantors Assembly
has rejected a proposal to offer
membership to women who re-
ceive cantorial degrees from
the Jewish Theological Semin-
ary of America.
The vote on a motion to
amend the assembly's by-laws
to admit women members was
108-82, 19 votes short of the
two-thirds majority required
for passage.
The balloting took place here
Tuesday during the 42nd
annual convention of the
assembly, which is affiliated
with the Conservative move-
ment and is the world's largest
body of hazzanim. Cantor
Robert Kieval of Rockville,
Md., was elected president of
the assembly, succeeding
Cantor Solomon Mendelson of
Long Beach, N.Y.
Since 1987, JTS has granted
the diploma of hazzan to
women who have successfully
completed the required course
of study at its Cantors Insti-
tute. But the Cantors Assem-
bly, a professional organiza-
tion of Conservative cantors,
has not yet recognized women
graduates of the institute.
Last May, a 97-95 majority
of the assembly voted against
a motion to admit qualified
women cantors. This year, the
forces supporting the admis-
sion of women picked up 13
votes, but that was not enough
to change the rules.
In a statement issued by the
assembly after the vote, out-
going President Mendelson
said, "The issue of admitting
women cantors to membership
is a sensitive and emotional
one that poses complex ques-
tions of tradition, religious
authority, the status of women
in the synagogue and many
other factors."
He added, "The Cantors
Assembly calls on all its mem-
bers and the American Jewish
community, whatever their
personal feelings, to accept
this decision with understand-
Mendelson also pointed out
that for years the Cantors
Assembly has been providing
scholarship assistance to both
male and female students at
the Cantors Institute.
"We shall, of course, con-
tinue this procedure in the
future," he said.
A statement issued by
women cantors and cantorial
students at JTS said: "We are
saddened and disappointed
that qualified women cantors
have once again been denied
membership in the Cantors
"But the future is very clear.
A maiority of our colleagues
already demand that women
be admitted to this profes-
sional association. We know
that all members of the Can-
tors Assembly will soon realize
the invaluable contributions
that women cantors are mak-
ing to Jewish life.
"Together with those col-
leagues who lobbied passion-
ately on our behalf, we will
continue to insist that qualified
women be granted admission
to our movement's profes-
sional organization."
Cantor Samuel Rosenbaum,
who was re-elected executive
vice president of the Cantors
Assembly, acknowledged that
the majority vote in favor of
the admission of women can-
tors reflected "a change in
mood and attitude" of the

AN ANTI-PLO VOTE. John Bolton, above, the U.S.
assistant secretary of state-designate for international
affairs, votes for the adjournment of the debates concerning
the admission of a Palestine state in the World Health
Organization. The U.S. had been arguing against allowing
the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to enter WHO
as a member state. (APIWxde World Photo).
WHO WILL BE IN WHO was the battle being waged by the
U.S. as it tried to prevent the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) from being admitted as a state member
of the World Health Organization. Among those present at
the opening day of WHO's U2nd assembly was Fathi Arafat,
right, brother of PLO chairman Yasir Arafat. (APIWxde
World Photo).
On the surface, it appeared
to be a moral contradiction
the Pentagon sponsoring a
"National Day of Prayer"
observance on May 4.
The anomaly, as I first per-
ceived it, was that the Penta-
gon, the Defense Department
and all the branches of the
armed forces which it houses
have one primary mission: the
defense of the national secur-
ity. The central objective of all
military training is to be pre-
pared to kill in order to protect
the nation.
Prayer at its deepest levels
is to affirm the preciousness of
life, the pursuit of peace and
social justice.
Yet as the keynote speaker
at that Pentagon observance, I
sensed something special at
work in this experience.

the foot soldiers, airmen and
sailors are not 19th century

Oprah Winfrey Apology
And Mass Media Damage
NEW YORK (JTA) Not all
Jewish leaders are satisfied
with the apology made last
week by Oprah Winfrey, host
of the popular talk show, for
featuring a mentally ill guest
who claimed Jews practice rit-
ual infanticide.
Winfrey and her producers
met in Chicago with represen-
tatives of Jewish organiza-
tions, chosen by the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith,
to mend fences and seek guid-
ance to prevent potential
After the meeting, Winfrey
and her production company,
Harpo Productions, made a
statement of their own, and
Jewish representatives drew
up a joint statement of re-
sponse to that. However, the
American Jewish Congress
released its own statement
expressing dissatisfaction with
Winfrey's apology.
The statement, made by the
group's associate executive
director, Phil Baum, found
"inadequate" the program's
response "to the harm done by
the dissemination by one of her
guests of religious canards
about Jews and Judaism."
A joint statement by Jewish
community leaders was not re-
leased until Friday, after
everyone present at the meet-
ing had read and approved the
text. It said, "We were satis-
fied that Oprah Winfrey and
her staff did not intend to
offend anyone and that Oprah
was genuinely sorry for any
offense or misunderstanding."
Baum, saying Winfrey's
regrets "cannot possibly reach
any significant part of the mas-
sive audience" that watched
the program, suggested she
make amends on camera "to
make it plain to her audience
that she regards all such com-
ments with revulsion and con-

Showdown Demanded Over Election Law..........................................
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir faces an imminent show-
down within his own Herut
party over his proposals for
Palestinian elections in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Industry and Trade Minister
Ariel Sharon, the most out-
spoken opponent of the plan,
announced that he would con-
vene "within 10 days" the
Herut Central Committee,
which he chairs, to debate the
The elections are the corner-
stone of the peace plan Israel
has presented to the United
States. The idea is for Pales-
tinians in the territories to
elect representatives with
whom Israel would negotiate
an interim autonomy arrange-
But Sharon, calling the plan
"a maior calamity,' claims it
would lead to the creation of a
Palestinian state "and to the
partition of Jerusalem."
Political observers say that
if Shamir and his closest ally,
Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, are unable to head off
the Central Committee ses-
sion, they will face a fierce
battle between Herut hard-
liners and the relatively mod-
erate elements in the party.
A key figure is housing Min-
ister David Levy, who is
deputy premier. While usually
moderate in Herut affairs, he
has spoken out against aspects
of Shamir's plan.
But political observers say
that even if Levy backs
Sharon, Shamir will still com-
mand a sizeable majority in the
Central Committee, whose
membership exceeds 2,000.
