Israeli Claims He Trained Columbian
Ranchers, Not Drug 'Hit Squads'
TEL AVIV (JTA) An officer in
the Israel Defense Force reserves is
denying that he trained "hit
squads" for the drug cartels operat-
ing in Colombia.
Reserve Lt. Col. Yair Klein said
the company he heads, Hod Haha-
nit, worked in Colombia about 18
months ago training security guards
for farmers and cattle ranchers.
He insists it was all legal and
But the case, first reported on
American television last week, has
triggered an investigation by the
Defense Ministry and discussion in
the Knesset.
It has focused attention on the
activities of many retired IDF offi-
cers as free-lancers training para-
military groups in parts of the world
remote from Israel.
Klein contended that the people
who employed him and several of his
former IDF colleagues needed mili-
tary training to combat guerrillas
and cattle rustlers their government
was unable to control.
He insisted they had nothing to do
with drug traffickers, citing the
relatively small amount of money he
said his clients were able to pay for
his services.
Klein has been appearing in radio
and television interviews since he
returned to Israel from abroad
Israel Television identified him
last Wednesday as the man alleged
by NBC News to be a mercenary
employed by the drug cartel.
A videotape purported to be made
by the Colombian drug syndicate
was aired by NBC News on August
22. It showed uniformed men unde-
rgoing training from instructors the

U.S. Israeli Brewers Draft
Plans To Export Beers
MILWAUKEE (JTA) To most Israelis, the term
"genuine draft" used to mean conscription in the military.
As of June, it also signifies a tall, cold one.
Miller Brewing Co., the Milwaukee-based international
beer-maker, has introduced its Miller Genuine Draft pre-
mium beer to an Israeli market dominated by the domestic
Maccabee Beer.

urged the State Department to
deny PLO leader Yasir Arafat
an entry visa to the United
States if he seeks to address
the United Nations General
Assembly session in New York
this fall.
Two other issues discussed
during a one-hour meeting
with top aides to State Depart-
ment legal adviser Abraham
Sofaer were the status of the
8-month-old U.S. dialogue
with the PLO and the anti-
Israel political program
adopted earlier this month by
Arafat's Al Fatah branch of
the PLO.
Prior to the State Depart-
ment session, the Jewish rep-
resentatives met at the Swiss
Embassy with the deputy chief
of mission, Christian Blicken-
storfer, and legal counselor
Kurt Hoechner to discuss
Switzerland's handling of an
application filed by the PLO
last month to sign onto the
Geneva Conventions.
Switzerland is the adminis-
tering country for the Geneva
Conventions, which are a ser-
ies of international treaties
first signed in 1864 that cover,
among other things, the treat-
ment of prisoners of war,
those wounded or killed in
battle, as well as civilians
under military occupation.
Switzerland is required to
inform all signatory nations in
writing when a state asks to
adhere to the conventions.
Normally, states seeking to
sign on are automatically
In May, Switzerland rejected
the PLO's first application,
arguing that it was incorrectly
filed. But the latest one, filed
in July, has been deemed
Nevertheless, Blickenstorfer
said Tuesday that Switzerland
believes the PLO "definitely
cannot" become a party to the
accords, because it is not a
The Geneva-based Interna-
tional Committee of the Red
Cross, which helps implement
the treaty and which receives
U.S. funds, is supporting the
PLO's bid.
While U.S. officials have not
said they would reduce U.S.
contributions to the ICRC
should the PLO become a
party to the treaty, there may
be an "implicit" threat, said
Jess Hordes, Washington rep-
resentative of the Anti-

implicit or explicit threat to

The U.S. government has
actively fought the PLO's
efforts to join several other
international bodies, including
the World Health Organization
and the United Nations Educa-

credited with pressuring the

Arafat were allowed to enter

to go on a speaking tour
around the United States or

A Test Of Glasnost
Much has changed in the Soviet Union since
Mikhail Gorbachev came to power.. Official
Anti-Semitism is no longer tolerated, and
more Jews than ever are being permitted to
leave the country. But behind the silver cloud
there is a dark lining. A recent statement by
the 'Anti-Zionist Committee of the Soviet
Public' provides a chilling reminder that all is
not well in the Soviet Union.
The statement, distributed by the Tass news
agency, attacked efforts by Soviet Jews to
establish a Zionist movement and to 'Israelize'
While Soviet officials have claimed that the
Committee has no official standing, the Tass
report gives the Anti-Zionists a public forum
for its racial slander.
The true test of Gorbachev's reforms will be
how far he distances the Soviet government
from the repression and overt anti-Semitism
of the past. We would welcome a public
repudiation by Gorbachev of the 'Anti-Zionist
Committee' and any other anti-Semitic activi-
80 Years Young
The nation's oldest Zionist youth group
celebrated its 80th birthday last month, but it
shows no signs of slowing down. Young Judea,
which was formed in immigrant neighbor-
hoods throughout the United States at the
turn of the century, has served for eight
decades as a training ground for young leader-
At a time when the forces of secularism and
assimilation exert a powerful grip on our
youth, Young Judea provides a welcome anti-
dote. The group, which is sponsored by Hadas-
sah, conducts educational and leadership
development programs through local clubs
and summer camps across the country. Best
wishes, Young Judea.

25,000 Refugees In Security Zone
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel has allowed some 25,000
refugees from Beirut into the southern Lebanon security
zone as a humanitarian gesture, despite the fact that 90
percent of them are Shiites, a Moslem community hostile to
Israel, according to Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
The security zone is an enclave parallel to the Israel
border which is policed by the Israel Defense Force and its
surrogate South Lebanon Army.
ADL Sues Over Name Use
NEW YORK The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has filed a lawsuit in a Washington D.C. federal
court, charging that the anti-Semitic "German-American
Anti-Defamation League" has been unlawfully using
ADL's name "despite its explicit, written agreement not to
do so." ADL asked the court for an injunction barring the
unauthorized use of its name plus damages.
The Auschwitz Convent: An Update
(Copyright 1989,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
NEW YORK The latest
statement by Cardinal Fran-
ciszek Macharski, archbishop
of Krakow, seemed ominous.
He said that in light of the
"aggression" against the Car-
melite nuns in the Auschwitz
convent, it has become an
"impossibility" to move for-
ward in building the new con-
vent in the planned interreligi-
ous center some 500 yards
away from the grounds of Aus-
If that were the case, that
would constitute a serious
violation of the written agree-
ment signed by Cardinal
Macharski and three other car-
dinals in Geneva in 1987.
That agreement, joined in by
several European Jewish lead-
ers, provided for the removal
of the Carmelite convent away
from Auschwitz and the build-
ing of a new convent in 1990
on land already purchased for
the new center.
Troubled by this reversal, I
spoke last week with Cardinal
Macharski's personal aide,
Father Stanislav Musial, in
Warm and friendly, he went
out of his way to assure me
that the cardinal's statement
did not constitute a "break" or
a "rupture" with the Jewish
"It was a temporary inter-
ruption," he said, provoked by
the "invasion" of the convent
by several self-appointed Jew-
ish representatives from New
That incident, involving the
climbing over the fence and
onto the porch of the convent,
violated the Catholic feeling
about the sanctity of their con-
vents and was perceived as a
threat to the lives of their
contemplative nuns.
Carmelites, an older that
practices silence, do not
engage in dialogue with outsid-
ers, and speak when they have
to only through an iron grill.
Jews have justifiably reacted
with anger over the insensitiv-
ity of the Carmelite in building
their convent on the grounds
of Auschwitz. At the same
time, Polish Catholics have
reacted fiercely to the Jewish
entry into their holy convent.
That insensitivity on both
sides far more serious on the
part of the Polish violation of
Auschwitz' meaning to Jews
must come to an end before we
are locked into a cycle of
"reciprocal hostility." We are
now heavily engaged in trying
to break that cycle on all sides.

Friedman Is A Veteran Israel-Basher
To the Editor:
It appears that Thomas
Friedman, The New York
Times correspondent, has
pulled the wool over the eyes
of Abraham Foxman of the
Anti-Defamation League.
Foxman (Floridian, July 28)
describes Friedman's new
book From Beirut to Jerusa-
lem, as "the story of a young
American Jew coming to
terms with the reality of Israel
and the Mideast as he experi-
ences it and as contrasted with
the idealistic image and beliefs
of his adolescence." It is noth-
ing of the sort.
Thomas Friedman would
like Foxman and the rest of
the reading public to believe
that he was pro-Israel until he
went to the Mideast as a repor-
ter and suddenly "discovered"
the "reality" that Israel has
blemishes. Thus Friedman
manages to blame Israel for
his own anti-Israel reporting.
But the truth is that Thomas
Friedman was an outspoken
critic of Israel many years
before he went off to Beirut
and Jerusalem as a journalist.
Back in 1974-1975, as a stu-
dent at Brandeis University,
Friedman as one of the leaders
of a far-left, anti-Israel campus
organization called the "Mid-
east Peace Group." He and
other leaders of the group
signed an "open letter," pub-
lished in The Brandeis Justice
on November 12, 1974, which
demanded that Israel make
concessions to the PLO and
blasted American Jewry for
opposing Yasser Arafat's
speech at the UN.
In other words, Friedman
was not a supporter of Israel
who went to the Middle East
and became disillusioned; he is
a veteran Israel-basher who
uses the columns of The New
York Times to puruse the
same anti-Israel agenda that
he was promoting back in the

WWII Vets Recall Fateful Day
By Ellen Ann Stein
Jewiah Floridian Staff Writer
August 22, 1944.
It was a good day for Ger-
man fighter planes. They
blasted American Air Force
planes and hit target with
many, showering Austrian
farmland with fragments of
burning metal. The men who
survived and parachuted to
safety were captured and
taken to German prison
August 22, 1989.
Two ex-fliers in the U.S. Air
Force and their wives met for
dinner at a Fort Lauderdale
restaurant. Joe Levine of
Deerfield Beach and Ken Col-
lins of North Miami Beach
were brought together by fate
on that day. And ever since
they rediscovered each other
in 1984 for the first time in
41 years they hold an annual
reunion to mark the day that
they both could have died.
"After all, it was a rebirth
for both of us," Levine recalls.
"We could have both been
dead that day."
Collins, now 65 and the
owner of a men's clothing
store in Bay Harbor Islands,
remembers the irony of the
military briefing he received
on August 22, 1944, when he
and 10 other soldiers boarded
a B-24 fighter and left Italy on
a bomb an oil refin-
ery outside of Vienna.
The briefing for the day said
that the Germans didn't have
very much gasoline for their
airplanes, "so don't expect too
many fighter planes." Collins,
who was the crew's bombar-
dier, said German oil refineries
had been a key American tar-
Now Collins looks back and
says, "The Germans had con-
served their fuel and must
have had every available figh-
ter in the air that day."
Out Of Control
His plane was hit. It was on
fire and spinning out of con-
trol. Collins was next to a
navigator and said to him,
"After you." The navigator
told Collins, "No, you can go
first." So Collins jumped. As
soon as he did, the plane
exploded and Collins couldn't
tell whether anyone else had
made it out. All he saw was
"tin foil falling down."
He landed in a pasture in a
little Hungarian village out-
side the town of Papa. He was
slapped around and taken to a
police station for interroga-
Meanwhile, Levine, now 71
and a part-time insurance
salesman, had completed a
successful mission on August
22, 1944 and was returning to
his base aboard a B-17 fighter,
where he was a radio operator
and gunner. The next thing he
knew, his plane was shot.
Eight of the 10 crew members
managed to bail out before the
planed exploded and crashed.
Levine was also taken to a
police station for interroga-
tion. It was in a little village
outside Papa. First though, he
had been ordered to take the
charred remains of about 10
American soldiers to a cemet-
Only Survivor
Collins overheard Levine
talking about his grisly task
while they were both waiting
for interrogation. It turned out
the bodies Levine had to pitch
into graves were the bodies of
Collins' fellow crewmen. Col-
lins, it turned out, had been
the only man to survive from
his plane.
Collins and Levine had been
together for no more than 30
minutes when they were both
taken to separate prison
camps. For the next 41 years,
they would not see each other
The prison camp where Col-
lins spent the next eight
months was "no country
club," Collins recalls. Levine
had it even worse.
When the Russian troops
were approaching the prison
camp, the prisoners were
forced to move. Levine spent
the next few months sleeping
in barns when he was lucky,
but most of the time sleeping
on the snow in the bitter win-
ter months. There was hardly
any food, certainly no showers
and the prisoners were full of
lice. Levine survived. Some of
his companions did not.
Life continued for both men
when they eventually returned
to the United States and began
to build careers and families.
Then one morning four years
ago, Isadore Kaset of North
Miami Beach walked into Col-
lins' store and as Collins
recalls, started to kibbitz about
their war stories.
Kaset told Collins he had a
friend who also told him simi-
lar stories. And his name was
"Joe Levine!," Collins said
in shock.
Yes. But, could it be ... ?
Collins took out his business
card and wrote simply the
date: August 22, 1944. "The
next time you see Joe Levine
ask him if this date means
The next morning, Levine
walked into Collins' store.
They had indeed shared that
special date.
"We didn't recognize each
other," says Levine. "After
all, we're talking 40 years.
And it was the most adverse
conditions; some of us were

The two men embraced and

On Tuesday, the men got
together for their annual din-
ner. They tell and retell their
stories and announce news of
any former soldiers they had
come accross.
Of course, both Levine and
Collins now also show each
other snapshots of their grand-
