Fallout On Haxtaae Crisis
Damage To Israel 'Minimal'
Higgins Died
Long Ago,
Data Suggests
Growing evidence suggests
that Lt. Col. William Higgins
was killed long before a Shiite
group released a videotape of
his "execution" on July 31.
An administration official
quoted by The Washington
Post said the "working
assumption" is that he was
killed sometime after the
shooting down of an Iranian
airliner over the Persian Gulf
in July 1988.
ABC News this week
reported that forensic experts
suspect Higgins was killed
shortly after his kidnapping in
February 1988.
They arrived at that conclu-
sion because the body in the
videotape appeared to be
clean-shaven, dressed in win-
ter clothes and not emaciated,
as many hostages tend to look
after months in captivity.
The timing of Higgins' death
is significant, because it could
disprove his kidnappers'
claims that he was hanged in
retaliation for Israel's capture
of their leader, Sheikh Abdul
Karim Obeid.

Arab callers during an unusual radio talk show in

Arens Has Direct Talks
With Arabs On Radio
90 minutes this week, it
seemed as if a dream came
true telephone lines to Jeru-
salem were overloaded with
calls from Kuwait, Beirut,
Cairo and other Arab cities.
The occasion was a phone-in
program organized by the Ara-
bic program on the Voice of
Israel. The guest in the studio
was Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, visibly enjoying direct
contacts with the Arab world
that came with no interna-
tional conference and with no
"Why don't you meet Arafat
and resolve the problem?"
asked Mohammad Salem from
He received the traditional
Israeli response that Israel
will talk only to Arab countries
and to representatives of the
residents in the administered
territories. Most of the other
questions dealt with the Pales-
tinian issue, with many caller
arguing that Israel should
negotiate with the PLO.
Arens politely told his
phone-mates that he was glad
he could talk directly to resi-
dents of Arab countries, but
they failed to move him away
from the traditional Israeli
position to boycott anything
that smells PLO.
In fact, when Mike Yunis,
the PLO representative in
Cyprus, phoned in with the
same question, Arens refused
to talk to him.
There are no direct tele-
phone lines between Israel and
the Arab world, with the
exception of Egypt. Solan
Communications in London, a
private communications com-
pany, arranged the telephone
hookup through a computer-
ized transmitter. Arab listen-
ers dialed 00-4416-248244 and
were directly linked with the
studio in Jerusalem.
Albert Yunis, a resident of
East Beirut, wanted to know
whether Israel's continued
holding of Sheikh Abdul Karim
Obeid did not amount to a
death sentence on the other
"If we release that criminal,
we will only encourage more
terrorist activities, Arens
said. He reiterated Israel's
readiness to exchange prison-
Yunis added a good word.
He told the Israeli minister
that most of the people in
Christian East Beirut sup-
ported the kidnapping of
Obeid, and were hoping that it
would end up with an
exchange of prisoners.
Arens refused to go further
into the Obeid kidnapping, but
said that the only way to fight
terrorism was not to give in to

bia, Jordan, Bahrain, Egypt,

NEW YORK Fears that
U.S.-Israeli relations might be
damaged by Israel's capture of
a Shiite extremist leader and
the ensuing hostage crisis have
not been borne out, say Jewish
community officials and obser-
Even with some public opin-
ion polls indicating a sudden
erosion in popular support for
Israel, they say, pro-Israel
feelings have survived a week
of harsh scrutiny and worri-
some remarks on the part of
President Bush and Senate
Minority leader Robert Dole.
But Jewish leaders told
President Bush Tuesday they
were concerned that the hos-
tage situation in Lebanon
could adversely affect public
support for Israel.
White House spokesman
Marlin Fitzwater said the lead-
ers were concerned over "gen-
eral public attitudes that might
develop" toward Israel in the
aftermath of its capture of a
Shiite extremist leader,
Sheikh Abdul Karim Obeid.
The seizure of the sheikh by
Israeli commandos on July 28
touched off a series of threats
against American hostages by
their Shiite captors. Some poli-
ticians, notably Sen. Robert
Dole, have blamed Israel for
endangering the lives of the
hostages by carrying out the
commando raid.
Fitzwater said the Jewish
leaders "reiterated their sup-
port for the president and for
the peace process in the Mid-
dle East," and said they
"shared our anguish over the
hostage situation."
In an unusually terse state-
ment, Seymour Reich, chair-
man of the Conference of Pres-
idents of Major American Jew-
ish Organizations, called the
White House meeting "an
informal, off-the-record con-
versation on a variety of
issues." He termed it "positive
and productive."
Jewish leaders have sought
to minimize any possible ero-
sion of support for Israel.
"The damage has been mini-
ma!, and things have turned
around," said Malcolm Hoen-
lein, executive director of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations. "Editorials and
talk shows have been very
supportive, and the same goes
for Congress."
Hoenlein and others played
down the significance of a
Washington Post-ABC News
poll taken Aug. 2 and 3, soon
after Shiite Moslem terrorists
claimed to have killed U.S.

JERUSALEM (JTA) The first-ever
Arab woman to serve in the Israel
Defense Force took the biggest risk oi
her military career this week and
Performing at a farewell party for the
outgoing commander of the Southern
Command, Haya Samir caused a scandal
when she sang a song interpreted by
many to be critical of Israel's handling
of the Palestinian uprising.
Some officers booed and others
stalked out of the celebration when
Samir, a member of the prestigious
Southern Command Entertainment
Group, launched into the Hebrew lyrics
of her own composition, "Man, Man of

blindly/hungry for justice and chewing
hatred/while calmness cries out/to all

According to an Army spokesman,
Samir's song was not part of the reper-
toire for the celebration for Maj. Gen.
Yitzhak Mordechai.
"Yitzhak Mordechai loved her singing
and we wanted to give him a nice time,"
said an officer after the show. "She used

Intifada' Turns Schools Into Battlegrounds
Despite its decision last
month to begin the phased
reopening of West Bank
schools and universities, Israel
remains under fire on the
issue. But the rationale for the
shutdown, the PLO's longtime
campaign to foment violence in
the schools, has received little
attention from the media.
Despite the intifada, nursery
schools, kindergartens and
most West Bank vocational
schools have remained open
because none of these have
been used to instigate vio-
lence. Gaza schools have also
stayed open, because militant
Islamic fundamentalists there
use mosques, not schools, to
incite their followers. "When
this situation (as in Gaza)
exists in Judea and Samaria,
the schools there will be reo-
pened," Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin declared.
Israel has repeatedly offered
to reopen any school whose
principal will guarantee that it
will be used to educate chil-
dren rather than encourage
rioting, an Israeli Embassy
spokesman said. But educators
wouldn't come forward for
fear of being labeled "collabor-
ators" a virtual death war-
rant by the PLO and its
allies. Israel has also met with
similar dead-ends in its efforts
to negotiate the terms of
school reopenings with West
Bank village leaders.
Educational opportunities
have been greatly enhanced
since Israel began administer-
ing the territories in 1967. The
number of elementary and
secondary schools has
increased more than 50%,
from 997 in 1967 to 1,560 in
1988. Women have been major
beneficiaries of the boom. In
1970, less than one-fourth of
women over age 15 had made
it through 8th grade. By 1986,
more than half had done so.
The percentage of women who
hadn't gone to school at all was
slashed by more than half,
dropping from 65.3 to 32.3%
during the same period.
Before 1967, there was not a
single university in the West
Bank; today there are six.
Since the intifada began in
December 1987, the PLO used
the schools to turn children
into cannon fodder. Prominent
Palestinian journalist Daoud
Kuttab gave a glowing account
of this process: "In school,
demonstrations and stone-
throwing are part of a tradi-
tion." Children, he says, par-
ticipate in such events by
"playing hooky en masse" and
"throwing stones at passing
Israeli vehicles." "To hit an
Israeli car," Kuttab writes, "is
to become a hero." He adds
that "schools are the natural
place for a demonstration to
begin because of the large
number of children gathered in
one place."
According to Kuttab, chil-
dren ages seven to ten are
often "seen rolling tires to the
middle of the road, pouring
gasoline on them, and setting
them afire." The advantage of
using children that young, he
says, is that "since these chil-
dren are under the legal age,
their capture does not lead to a
prison term. Eleven to 14-
year-olds usually put "large
stones in the road to slow
down or stop traffic" and
attack passing cars with sling-
shots, Kuttab says. Rabin,
60% of all stone-throwers in
the territories are children
between ages six and fifteen.
In February 1989, the PLO
and the uprising leadership
urged "every child (to) carry
the stone and throw it at the
occupier. The Molotov cocktail
heroes of all ages must burn a
fire in the face of the enemy
and fight him face-to-face.
The threats are serious. On
June 6, an Israeli patrol uncov-
ered large caches of knives,
clubs and iron bars hidden in
school-yards and buildings.
"We are teaching these kids to
be active resisters," declared
Shehab Gharaybeh, an intifada
leader who organizes the
youths into rebel units.
Despite the many obstacles
being placed in the way of the
reopening of schools as a
result of West Bank violence,
Jerusalem remained deter
mined to find a way to do so.
After all, as Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir stressed to a
visiting American delegation:
"It is in our interest to have
the West Bank schools open
because we want a normal life
The Israeli government has
once again shown its good
faith by reopening the schools.
The question now is whether
the PLO and its allies will
continue to insist on turning
children into cannon fodder.

Jewish Families Settle In Arab Quarter
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
During a recent visit to
Israel, our group was treated
to a special lunch in a Jewish
house in the Moslem quarter of
the Old City.
That might seem inconsis-
tent. How could a Jewish home
exist in the Moslem quarter, or
even more important, what is
a Jewish home doing in a sec-
tion inhabited by Arabs, espe-
cially in the tense times of the
intifada, or uprising?
Our hostess, Yael Racha-
mim, explained as she was
setting out a lunch for our
group of 13 Americans, that
her children come and go to
and from school with escorts.
Before anyone can enter her
apartment complex, he or she
must be cleared through one of
the three armed soldiers that
sit at the entrance.
It is not life as usual, but it is
increasingly becoming a way
of life in the Old City, where
some Jews are quietly invest-
ing in homes in the Arab sec-
tion in an effort to peacefully,
through economics, reclaim
the land they believe belongs
to the Jews.
"I feel as though we're sit-
ting in a conquered house,"
one member of our group
Although not every Jew who
makes the risky move into the
Arab quarter has armed
guards at the door, Rachamim
lives in the same complex as
Israel Trade Minister Ariel
Sharon. Our guide told us that
Sharon was the first Knesset
high, our guide said, because
"you have to pay for the Arab
risking his life, his freedom
and getting his wife to sign"
the house over to a Jewish
Three Jewish families now
live in this particular complex,
along with two Arab families,
and so far the mixture has not
led to any violent incidents.
Several members of our
group were curious to know
now Rachamim and her hus-
band and their two children
take care of the basic necessi-
ties such as running to a
nearby grocery store when
they see there is no more milk
in the refrigerator.
"I'd rather do without it,"
she says. Everytime Racha-
mim leaves the house when her
husband is at work, she has to
call an escort.
Forty yeshiva students were
the first to move into the
neighborhood. The Racha-
mim's moved in six months
ago. Sharon moved in 18
months ago.
Ellen Stein
. back from Israel
She says she is glad that
government members such as
Sharon are taking an interest
in their efforts to reclaim the
land, but having a government
official living in the complex
doesn't necessarily offer her
reassurances for her family's
safety. "In some ways it's
worse with Sharon living in
the same building," she said.
Her husband teaches at a
local yeshiva, and two armed
yeshiva students escort her-
children home.
In the 10 years since the
movement started, the 71st
child was born in the settle-
ment this month.
No sooner did the group
leave the luncheon and our
pleasant hostess, then an Arab
child waved a stick and pointed
a toy gun at our group in the
narrow street. Soldiers w^re
hauling Arab teens away.
Throughout Israel, particu-
larly in West Bank territories,
Jews are continuing to vir-
tually carve new settlements
from the limestone-based hills.
One such settlement is Gush
Etzion, where an American
rabbi, Shlomo Riskin, made
aliyah to become the settle-
ment's spiritual leader.
Gush Etzion is just outside of
Hebron, one of Israel's four
holy cities, now almost totally
inhabited by Arabs.
Our tour guide noted that
Riskin's settlement was not
temporary, but built with mil-
lions of dollars with "no con-
tingency plans to. leave."
Our guide, who has 10 chil-
dren, just paid $60,000 to buy
a three-story home in the heart
of the Arab marketplace in
"I am one of the people who
does what I believe," he said.
There are still approxi-
mately one million Arabs who
live in the West Bank, referred
to by Jews by the biblical
names of Judea and Samaria,
and less than 100,000 Jews.
These settlements are inha-
bited by Jews who cling to the
biblical precept that if they do
what is difficult, G-d will help

The black leader and former
Democratic presidential candi-
date made the remark in an
appearance on a news pro-
gram broadcast Sunday on
WBBM, the CBS-TV affiliate
in Chicago.
Jackson was discussing the
need to end the cycle of vio-
lence in the Middle East when
he referred to the seizure of
the Shiite extremist leader as
a "kidnapping."
Asked why he chose to use
that terminology, Jackson
replied, "Of course it was a
kidnapping. It was an act of
terror and it was a mistake. It
was a provocative act."
Seymour Reich, president of
B'nai B'rith International,
strongly criticized Jackson for
equating terrorist hostage-
taking with the "seizure by a
democratic government of a
terrorist leader."
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai

ment "outrageous" and said it
"could not have come at a

negotiations are taking place

"serious distortion" is "part of
a mindset which is quick to

Jackson also was chided by
Sylvia Neil, executive director
of the Chicago office of the
American Jewish Congress.
"It is incredible and unfor-
tunate that people such as Mr.
Jackson misconceive the
apprehension of a terrorist to
be terrorism," Neil said.

Terrorism, Continued
Last week, we expressed concern that the
presumed execution of Lt. Col. William Hig-
gins might unleash an anti-Israel backlash.
Thankfully, cooler heads have prevailed. The
Hezbollah terrorists are no longer threatening
to execute U.S. hostage Joseph Cicippio, Iran
has hinted at a willingness to help resolve the
crisis and the Bush administration has muted
any direct criticism of Israel.
Whatever the outcome, it is clear that the
United States must pursue a comprehensive
settlement for ALL the hostages. An appease-
ment policy or tit-for-tat exchange will only
encourage more kidnapings and violence.
We should take a lesson from the 1930s,
when the appeasement camp attacked Win-
ston Churchill for standing up against Adolf
Hitler. The reluctance of some Americans to
face hard truths played into Hitler's hands and
made his job that much easier.
Let's substitute Israel for Churchill and
Hezbollah for Hitler. Israel, like Churchill, has
refused to buckle under to demogogues. Sure
the Israelis took a big risk in kidnaping
Shiek Abdul Karim Obeid but at least they
were willing to strike out and DO something.
A recent poll by Time Magazine-Cable News
Network indicated that 58 percent of Ameri-
cans support negotiations to end the crisis and
50 percent said the administration should
refrain from bombing terrorist hideouts in
Lebanon if innocent people might be killed.
There is nothing wrong with negotiations as
long as the involved parties are sincere. We do
not, however, have any reason to trust the
murderous Hezbollah terrorists and certainly
Iran has been no great friend of the United
States. We should give them the benefit of the
doubt, but at the same time keep our military
options open.
Israel's kidnaping of the sheik may have
provoked a short-term crisis, but it also
exposed the long-festering wound of state-
supported Hezbollah terrorism. When and if
the Western hostages are finally released,
perhaps we may look upon Israel's unilateral
action as the catalyst for change.
Lifelong Leadership
Congratulations are in order for Harriet
Green, one of the first Floridians ever elected
to head a national Zionist organization. Her
selection this week as president of Na'amat
USA, the Women's Labor Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, continues her lifelong leader-
ship for Israel and the Jewish people.
Mrs. Green has been virtually synonymous
with the success in South Florida of both
Na'amat USA and the American Zionist Fed-
eration. She has led both local units for many
years, and has coordinated several of the
largest rallies for Israel held anywhere in the
United States.

major installations in Israel, is fortunate to
have a volunteer of the caliber of Harriet

Some 'Jewish' Aspects Of Felix Block
Friday, August 18,1989
Volume 18
17 AV 5749
Number 16
NEW YORK (JTA) I first
met Felix Bloch, the alleged
Soviet spy, in Vienna during
August 1986. Ronald Lauder,
now a Republican candidate
for mayor of New York, had
just been named U.S. ambassa-
dor to Austria. I was in Vienna
as a member of the first Amer-
ican Jewish Committee delega-
tion to develop educational
programs for helping young
Austrians confront their coun-
try's Nazi past, including its
virulent anti-Semitism.
As a gesture of support of
our mission, Ambassador
Lauder tendered a dinner
reception in his home in honor
of the AJC delegation and for
senior members of his embassy
staff. Felix Bloch was among
the embassy people present.
The following morning, our
delegation was invited to the
U.S. Embassy for a compre-
hensive briefing on Austrian-
U.S. relations with the top
embassy specialists. Bloch
took an active part in that
It became evident to our
group that Lauder and his
deputy chief of mission were
operating on different wave
lengths. At our several discus-
sions, Lauder spoke passion-
ately about his concerns over
Austrian anti-Semitism,
Austrian-Israeli relations and
especially about the cause of
Soviet Jewry. (Austria has
been the transfer center for
some 250,000 Jews from the
Soviet Union and Iran.)
In subsequent "coffee talk,"
Bloch cautiously but clearly
left the impression that he
thought Lauder was miscon-
struing his role.
"He is supposed to be the
ambassador of the United
States to Austria, not the
ambassador of the UJA," he
told several of us. We were
labbergasted by his comments
.nd told him so.
Ambassador Lauder devel-
oped a close relationship with
the Jewish community of
Vienna, helping to support
some Jewish communal pro-
jects with personal financial
To my knowledge, Felix
Bloch kept his distance from
the Kultusgemeinde and its
While bigots and anti-
Semites may seek to exploit
his "Jewishness," Felix Bloch
was in fact an archetypical

In sum, I know nothing
about the validity of the
charges and rumors about his
being a Soviet spy, but I do
know it will be a very bad rap
if anyone seeks to make any
connection between his Jewish
background and his alleged
betrayal of his country.

Marine Lt. Coi. William Hig-
gins in retaliation for Israel s
abduction of Shiite leader
Sheikh Abdul Karim Obeid.
Only 29 percent of the 711
adults polled said Israel is a
"reliable ally" of the United
States compared to 51 per-
cent who answered positively
to the same question in April.
This time, 53 percent said
Israel is not a reliable ally, and
19 percent had no opinion.
Some 51 percent of the
respondents also said they dis-
approved of Israel's decision to
seize Obeid, who was described
by poll-takers as a "Moslem
clergyman," rather than the
leader of a Shiite terrorist fac-
tion. Only 30 percent approved
of the action, and 19 percent
had no opinion.
By contrast, a Roper poll
taken in April on behalf of the
American Jewish Committee
found 44 percent of Americans
believe Israel is a reliable ally,
a figure that has shown only a
slight decline over the last five
The questions prompted "a
far more negative reaction to
Israel than reality," said Ste-
ven Cohen, professor of sociol-
ogy at Queens College.
Still, Jewish leaders
acknowledge that the ABC
poll and another by Time
magazine and Cable News
Network saying 53 percent of
Americans believe Israel
"went too far" in "kidnapping
Sheikh Obeid" may have
accurately reflected feelings
early last week.

Coming To America. Part II
Americanization Of The Guralnick Family
The movies couldn't have
done a better job. They were
the last ones off the plane, my
new-found relatives. Having
been given 48-hours notice, I
told my Pesach hosts that
rather than four we'd be 11 for
seder. I rented a van and now
paced nervously in front of the
Pan American gate they were
supposed to be coming
through. The jumbo jet was
packed and lines of people
streamed off.
With a Russian dictionary in
one hand and a family photo in
the other, I began to play mind
games with myself. "Who
looks like Russian Jews?" The
answer is, "a lot of people." I
consistently guessed wrong. I
also thought back to my great-
great uncle "Itsabear' (truth,
I swear, but that's another
story) who stood at the end of
New York harbor gangplanks
for weeks waiting for his fam-
ily to come off a ship. At least I
knew the flight number, date,
and time.
Finally they disembarked,
looking more like the victims
of jet-lag than any definable
ethnic or national group. It
was a most spontaneous
moment. Strangers, linked
only by letters and a distant
gene, we embraced like next-
of-kin. There was Arkady, the
father, and his parents Eliza-
beth and Samuel. Arkady's
wife, Inna, Inna's mother
Yugenia, and the children Dina
and Yulie, who rounded out
the group. It was Elizabeth,
speaking Yiddish, who made
my day. "William," she said,
"you're my Moshe Rabeinu". I
was overwhelmed. I had been
a lot of things to a lot of
people. To be Moses was to be
honored like never before. I
wonder if that's the feeling
Charlton Heston got when
Cecil B. De Mille told him
Heston was his Moses ...
Over the ensuing weeks I
was to learn about their Exo-
dus. They had been refusniks
for eight years. Their plight
was not quite as hard as some
Arkady was a dentist and
able to continue his practice.
Inna was a doctor of Public
Health and apparently kept
her job. They did not lose their
flat. However, they lived in an
area where there were few
Jews and where an almost
inbred hostility toward Jews
caused one to hide one's Jew-
ishness. This was in Baku, in
the province of Azerbazian, on
the Caspian Sea. That turned
out to be the good news.
The province was one of the
first to test the limitations of
glasnost and perestroika. Tur-
kish Moslems and Armenian
Christians began battling over
political issues, in part reliving
the events that led to the
Armenian slaughter by the
Turks, one of the few events in
the Gentile world that could
also be called a holocaust. The
battling became fighting which
spread to the streets. The
economy had been wrecked by
the earthquake so the area was
unstable to begin with. The
Jews were often caught in the
middle. One day Arkady was
driving through an area that
was engulfed in protest
marches. His car was set upon
William A. Gralnick
and turned over. Again, that
was the good news.
Only in a Jewish story could
such bad news be good news.
The family had used my name
as a "guarantor" of their pas-
sage. When the visa was
issued they, came out of Rus-
sia to Rome. There, they
became part of the rapidly
growing pool of Russian Jews
backed up precisely because of
glasnost. The Russians were
permitting Jews to leave. The
United States, in it's infinite
wisdom, took that as a sign
that Soviet Jews were there-
fore not ipsofacto a persecuted
group. The government began
reviewing entry cases and
refusing people with a lot
closer relationships than ours.
Jews, in fact, had begun to
commit suicide under the pres-
sure. It was at this time that I
received a letter from Rome.
Basically, it said two things.
"We're worried about our
status and hope you'll come
through for us and secondly,
"In spite of the worries, we're
having a wonderful time."
You see, they told me, that
this was the first time in eight
years they had been able to
relax, sightsee, not look over
their shoulder. They window-
shopped clothing stores, they
aisle-hopped supermarkets,
swam, and walked, savoring
their freedom as they waited.
Like Alice, they had discov-
ered Wonderland.
I had received two collect
calls from them. They were
nervous, anxious. I, too, was
concerned. Everything hinged
now on their ability to con-
vince the United States Consu-
lar officials that their plight
truly was different than many
of their compatriots in Rome.
They were on their own. They
played their Baku card. During
the riots they had taken pic-
tures from a balcony. They felt
confident that with the pic-
tures and the history of both
Moslem and Orthodox Chris-
tian enmity, they would be
passed through.
Their confidence was not
misplaced. They were issued
Mind you, their passage was
not without it's tensions.
Would they ever get out? Who
among them might be forced
to stay behind? Would this
newly found relative come
through for them? That ques-
tion, in fact, led to a test. An
American of Russian descent,
Gregory Weinstein had met
the Guralniks in Baku. They
gave Weinstein instructions to
call me and check me out for
them. Cats may have been part
of Weinstein's calling; spying
was not. I got a desultory call
saying he was going to the
Soviet Union and another
when he returned: both quite
cryptic. We never actually
Most of the communicatoin
was thankfully not through
Weinstein the cat-courier but
through Gary and Katia Ginz-
burg, longtime friends from
Baku who made it out almost
nine years ago.
Residing in Boston, the Ginz-
burgs had hoped that the Gur-
alniks could go there. The Bos-
ton Federation was not taking
anyone else, nor could the
Ginzburgs take the Guralniks
because they themselves had
received word that their par-
ents were coming out. So by
default the Guralniks got
Miami and me, or Miami and I
got them. They were, I was
informed, the last family eligi-
ble under the 1988-89 budget
So with this baggage they
arrived. But that wasn't the
only baggage they had not
by a long shot.
After the introductions I
asked Arkady if there was
baggage. He looked at me and
said, "Many". Aside from the
eight or nine carry-on pieces,
they had 12 large, red suit-
cases with which I would
become intimately familiar
over the next three weeks.
Each one weighed more than
the last. And why not? They
had seven closets full plus
four samovars (all for me but
only a few of their presents in
total), books, and a portable
dental drill which looked sort
of early Black and Decker.
As I looked with awe and
intimidation at the luggage,
Arkady said wryly, "In Baku, I
fat" (He made an enlarging
motion over his stomach."
"Now slim." We laughed. I
had to go 12 miles. He'd cov-
ered almost 12,000 with them.
I waved off the security guard-
cum-ticket checker who knew
hc/peless when she saw it, and
Arkady and I shlepped them all
outside. Wringing wet, I had a
revelation. No way was this
stuff and the people who went
with it going to fit in the van. I
needed a cab, a very big one.
Two drivers wouldn't give me
so much as a direct look. They
too knew hopeless when they
saw it. Finally, a helpful Hait-
ian stopped, albeit skeptically.
I assured him I had an eye for
angles, and would help load.
When I said, "Remember
when you were them", he said,
"OK, let's try". During this
exchange came the comedy.
An imperious baggage han-
dler burst through the door.
He looked down at the luggage
and up at Samuel who looks
like an elderly schmoo (egg-
shaped for the non-Al Capp
fans out there). He speaks no
English and understands
about the same amount. Mr.
Handler began yelling,
"Whose baggage is this?'
"You're blocking the door!"
"You can't block the door!"
"Don't block the door!" How
of course he got through this
blocked door was a legitimate
question. But even if Samuel
had thought it, he couldn't
have expressed it. The family
gathered protectively around.
Now on my third cab driver,
dripping wet, and very tired, I
looked up at this scene. I was
hot two ways.
I walked over to the man and
faced him the way an angry
manager confronts an umpire
nose to nose. I said in what
could best be described as a
growl: "These people are Rus-
sian immigrants. They've been
in two countries, flown 24
hours straight (a bit of an
exaggeration), they've just
arrived, and you, sir, are their
first impression of America!"
He backed up. He looked at
them, looked at the bags,
looked at me and said, "Wel-
come to America don't block
the doors!" With that I was
convulsed, they were con-
fused, and he was gone.

LBttBrS m ... from our readers:
To the Editor:
A literary genius lives a
quiet life in Israel. She is Hen-
rietta Hannah Bodenheimer,
daughter of the late Max Isa-
dore Bodenheimer.
Bodenheimer was a lawyer,
judge and writer (1865-1940).
As a pioneer of Zionism, he
spread the word by forming a
number of organizations. He
was president of the Jewish
Colonial Trust and the Jewish
National Fund for years. His
idea formed when he wit-
nessed pogroms and atrocities
against the Jewish people. He
had a vision that Jews all over
the world would be respected
if they had their own state,
their own home. Later Theo-
dor Herzi came to him with a
similar proposal and they
worked diligently together.
Henrietta, his daughter,
born in 1892 in Cologne, Ger-
many, still writes about the
beginnings of Zionism. Gener-
ations will value her books.
She is listed in the Dictionary
of International Biography for
Outstanding Contributions to
Education in the State of
Israel, the International Regis-
try of Profiles, the Who's Who
of Women and a certificate of
the first edition of the Interna-
tional Biographical Center,
Cambridge, England.
Max Isadore Bodenheimer
raised his voice for establish-
ing a Jewish State in Pales-
tine. He wrote, "With discus-
sion it won't be accomplished.
Only through work can a
Nation be free". His idea was
to encourage settlers to come
to the Land and then, with
hard work, to build the land
and defend themselves. It was
a hard task, but it was the
beginning. He did not know,
that after all these years,
Israel would still have to be on
the defense.
For 43 years, M. I. Boden-
heimer lived in Cologne, Ger-
many, where his idea took
form, which led to the estab-
lishment of the State of Israel.
He made a special impression
on another pioneer Zionist
writer, Moses Hess, who gave
to the world books such as,
"Rome and Jerusalem", also
"Where Will The Russian
Jews Go" and "Zionists Of All
Lands Work Together".
Two years later Theodor
Herzl wrote, "The Jewish
State" ("Der Judenstaat")
which contained ideas found in
Bodenheimer's work. Herzl
established the World Zionist
Congress in 1897; it was a
Parliament of Jewish organi-
zations who believed in Zion-
It was not easy to build a
Zionist movement. Prominent
Jews in Germany were encour-
aged to assimilate, and many
did. There was strong anti-
semitism in Germany, and
those assimilated Jews were
afraid of too much publicity
about Zionism. Also, Orthodox
Jews were against Zionism. As
the Director of the Orthodox
Teachers seminary, Rabbi Dr.
Plato explained, "The Jewish
problems are in G-ds hands".
M. I. Bodenheimer was also
responsible for the start of
Buying Land in Israel, The
National Fund, the bank and
the Jewish Colonial Trust, was
instrumental in their work.
After Theodor Herzl's death,
his friend, David Wolfson
became the President of the
Zionist World Organization,
(1904-1911), and published the
newspaper, "World" ("Die
Welt''). So Cologne became a
center of Zionism.
M. I. Bodenheimer's wife
Rosa, stood up for the rights of
women to vote and was the
head of Jewish Women's cul-
ture work in Palestine. Of her
three children only one daugh-
ter is still alive, H. H. Boden-
heimer, in Jerusalem. She
made her life's work, "The
Research of Early History of
Political Zionism of the
World." Her father, M. I.
Bodenheimer, foresaw the
danger for Judaism in Ger-
many. In 1933, there started
the boycotts of Jewish intellec-
tuals, businesses, and so on,
but many German Jews did not
want to know about it.
The Israeli Ambassador,
Beniamin Navon, said if it
would not have been for Dr.
Bodenheimer there would be
no Zionism. So today, the
State of Israel would not exist
and the Jews who are living
today in Israel, Israeli citizens,
would not be alive.
After 1933 the friendly coex-
istence with the Germans was
changed from political and
ideological struggles to that of
terror and anger, which shat-
tered the world of German
Jewry. M. I. Bodenheimer had
sensed the danger. He emi-
grated with his family to
Palestine. There he died July
10, 1940.
I was fortunate to meet this
grand lady and would like the
world to know about her
father's accomplishments, and
about Henrietta Hannah

Shabbat Bill Introduced
bill to protect the rights of
Jews and others who want
time off from their jobs to
observe the Shabbat and religi-
ous holidays has been intro-
duced in the House by Rep.
Stephen Solarz (D-N.Y.).
The Religious Accommoda-
tion Amendment of 1989
would require an employer to
allow an employee to choose a
means of accommodating his
or her religious needs if there
is more than one way to do
'The freedom to observe
religious obligations, to keep
the Sabbath and other holy
days, is basic to the American
way of life," Solarz said.
The bill is a response to a
series of decisions by the U.S.
Supreme Court which
Solarz believes has eroded the
provision of the Civil Rights
Act of 1964 which requires
employers to "reasonably"
accommodate the religious
practices of employees.
The Supreme Court decision
specifically mentioned by
Solarz was the 1986 decision in
Ansonjba Board of Education
vs. Philbrook.
In that decision, the court
ruled that the Equal Employ-
ment Opportunity Commission
did not have the legal author-
ity to adopt a rule that
required "when there is more
than one means of accommo-
dation which would not cause
undue hardship, the
employer. must offer the
alternative which least disad-
vantages the individual with
respect to his or her employ-
ment opportunities."
The Solarz bill would give
the E.E.O.C. this authority.
David Lachman, an aide to
Solarz, said that the high
court's decision has freed

In some cases, employees
have been required to take a

to everyone."
Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
The seven fruits of Israel: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegran-
ates, olives, dates.
"For the Lord thy God bringeth thee unto a good land... a land of
wheat and barley ... a land of olive-trees and honey"
EKEV (Devi. 8.7-8).
EKEV Moses declares: "And it shall come to pass, because ye
hearken to these ordinances, and keep, and do them, that the
Lord thy God shall keep with thee the covenant and the mercy
which He swore unto thy fathers, and He will love thee, and bless
thee, and multiply thee" (Deuteronomy 7.12-13). The Israelites are
not to fear the Canaanite nations: witness the providence and
supervision of God over His people in the desert, though they
sinned. In passing, Moses makes a general reference to the
incident of the Golden Calf. The Israelites were not to inherit the
land of Canaan because of their own virtues: "Not for thy
righteousness, or for the uprightness of thy heart, dost thou go in
to possess their land; but for the wickedness of these nations the
Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that He
may establish the word which the Lord swore unto thy fathers"
(Deuteronomy 9.5). After mentioning God's powerful miracles in
Egypt and the desert (particularly in reference to Dathan and
Abiram), Moses dwells on the importance of the Promsed Land.
The portion continues with the second part of the Shema,
beginning "And it shall come to pass, if ye shall harken diligently
unto My commandments" and ending "that your days may be
multiplied, and the days of your children, upon the land which the
Lord swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of the
heavens above the earth" (Deuteronomy 11.13-21). And the
portion concludes with the promise: "There shall no man be able to
stand against you: the Lord your God shall lay the fear of you and
the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as He
hath spoken unto you" (Deuteronomy 11.25).

based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
