but that is different from being
held to perfection by a kan-
garoo court which will use it as
an excuse for extermination at
a later point. We have taken
the posture of a defendant
agreeing to stand trial."
Wisse defined as a serious
problem "the point of collusion
between sustained enmity and
the liberal imagination. There
is a liberal disinclination to
recognize Arab hatred. The
liberal imagination detests
aggression and force and
camouflages aggressive inten-
tion in order to avoid dealing
with arms and defense. It sees
people as good, and conflict
resolution as the solution."
Jewish Advocate
Excitement filled the air at
the Boston Park Plaza Hotel
ballroom last Sunday, as
nearly 1000 people came
together to strengthen the
movement to combat media
distortion of Israel whenever
and wherever it occurs.
Speaking at the national con-
ference of CAMERA (Commit-
tee for Accuracy in Middle
East Reporting in America),
Norman Podhoretz, editor of
Commentary Magazine,
stated, "This political and
moral assault is a familiar
experience to Jews in the dias-
pora; now it is the fate of the
Jewish State. There is a steady
stream of hectoring and har-
assment, unctuous in its pro-
fessed concern for Israel's
"If we do not exert ourselves
to prevent a new Palestinian
state, we will be guilty of
complicity in the destruction of
Israel, and will be cursed by
future generations of Jews,"
he continued, describing the
worst possible scenario "The
Day After Israeli With-
drawal." Even the best scen-
ario would lead to civil war
between Palestinian factions
in the new state, and interven-
tion by Syria as "peace-
keeper," Podhoretz said. He
characterized this as "the
Lebanonization of the new
Palestinian state. Having
tasted a bit of Syrian rule, the
Palestinians might welcome
the return of Israel," he
Ruth Wisse, professor of
Jewish Studies at McGill Uni-
versity, spoke on "Inverting
History and Events: The Cam-
paign to Delegitimize Israel."
Inversion has turned Jews
"from a nation of victims to a
nation of villains," she
explained. "It is a war being
waged against Jews worldwide
with a great deal of intellectual
and monetary resources
behind it."
Arab propaganda has been
so successful, Wisse main-
tained, because "Jews have
had no incentive to counter-
ftropaganda. We want to be
iked and tolerated. A major
disincentive is the fear that
fighting back may make things
So Jews have "agreed to
become the defendant, to be
held to a higher standard," she
continued. "We are used to
being held by God, the Perfect
Judge, to a perfect standard,
A Memory
For Our Times
With methodical precision during the night of
Wednesday, November 9th, and early morning of
Thursday, November 10, 1938, SA, SS and Nazi
stormtroopers, disguised in plain clothes, assem-
bled in prearranged meeting places and fanned out
to selected targets in the Jewish communities of
Germany, Austria and the occupied Sudetenland
(the Third Reich).
Following Gestapo instructions, these Nazi
agents axed windows, demolished furnishings,
wrecked houses, smashed store fronts, ravaged
merchandise, torched synagogues and arrested
20,000 30,000 Jews. As the well-coordinated
destruction took place, most neighbors just
By Friday morning, November 11, nearly 100
Jews were dead, 7,500 Jewish businesses had been
destroyed and more than 275 synagogues had been
razed or burned. The majority of the Jews arrested
were sent to the German concentration camps of
Dachau, Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald. Carpets
of crushed glass and debris covered the streets of
the Third Reich.
The German public labeled this event "Kristall-
nacht," or the "Night of Broken Glass." Some
American newspapers dubbed it "Black Thurs-
day," while others, comparing the destruction with
the physical attacks against Jews in Czarist Russia,
called it the "Night of Pogroms."
Within days of the event, Hermann Goering,
Reich Minister of the Four-Year Plan, issued the
Decree Eliminating the Jews from German Eco-
nomic Life. A 25-percent "flight" tax on all Jewish
property being removed from German territory
and a fine of one billion marks ($400 million) were
levied on the Jewish communities to "compensate"
for the damages wrought by the Nazis. Goering
expropriated all remaining Jewish businesses by
transferring their ownership to "Aryan" hands.
Panic swept the Jewish communities. Thousands
packed Western European and American consu-

Back From The USSR:
Soviet Jews in 'Panic'
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Soviet Jews are in a "panic"
about tightening U.S. emigra-
tion policies and "horrendous"
anti-Semitism is increasing
their fears, said Hinda Cantor,
who just returned from a 10-
day mission in Leningrad and
Cantor, co-chairman of the
South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry, who joined some
75 Americans including nine
from South Florida on the
mission, said the conference
marked the first time a Soviet
Jewry organization has held a
meeting in Moscow.
"The meetings confirmed
what we as Soviet Jewry activ-
ists already knew, but the rest
of the community doesn't
understand," Cantor told The
Jewish Floridian.
"The problem for Soviet
Jews is not over everyone
thinks all we have to do is
resettle them here."
Besides the narrowing
of U.S. emigration quotas for
the Soviet refugees, Cantor
said she learned that the
Israeli government has been
slow, and, in some cases taking
over a year, to send the invita-
tions that the Soviets Jews
need to go to Israel.
In addition, there are still an
estimated 2,000 Soviet Jews
who have been denied permis-
sion by Soviet authorities to
emigrate and retain their
"refusenik" status.
Cantor, who coordinated the
American participation in the
conference, which was hosted
by the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews, was ioined by her
husband Howard and South
Floridians Jackie and Michael
Abels, Marilyn Himmel,
Michael Tryson, June and Ron
Daniels, Stephen Cohen and
Ellen Roth, an aide to U.S.
Sen. Bob Graham.
On one hand, she said, the
policy of glasnost is working.
"We went to public restau-
rants and danced the hora,"
she said.
But with more openess, for-
mer government "anti-
Zionism" has evolved more
into public forums for neo-
Nazis, who are threatening
and stirring up hatred against
Jews, Cantor said.
"We describe the trip as the
highest of highs and the lowest
of lows. You meet people, fall
in love a million times and
know you have to leave and
you're lucky you can leave and
go to the United States.
...Many of them said, 'Put me
in your suitcase.' "

Kristallnacht and Reunification
This week marks the 51st anniversary of
Kristallnacht, the night on which Adolf
Hitler's ultimate purpose against the Jews
of Germany and the world became crystal
The Night of the Broken Glass resulted in
the death of 36 Jews and injury to many
more. Destruction of synagogues was mas-
sive, hence the broken glass. Seventy-six
Jewish houses of worship were completely
destroyed and 191 others were set on fire.
The Nazis used the assassination of the
third secretary of the German embassy in
Paris as the reason for their rampage,
during which night some 30,000 Jews were
sent to the concentration camps at Buchen-
wald, Dachau and Sachsenhausen.
After Kristallnacht, the Jewish commu-
nities in Germany and Austria were vir-
tually dissolved, and the Holocaust
assumed its new and tragic dimensions.
Of Greater Importance
Observance of Kristallnacht this year is
made more important by increased talk of
the reunification of Germany, something
which seemed unthinkable only months
While the apparent lessening of Com-
munist total rule over East Germany is
commendable, it is far too early to talk
about union with democratic West Ger-
many. Election of a new East German
leader and the flight to freedom of tens of
thousands of East Germans are not enough
to end the concerns of not only world
Jewry, but of the entire free world.
Two global conflicts, World Wars I and
II, which brought death to tens of millions
and virtual annihilation to European Jewry
are far too much evidence against a reuni-
fied Germany.
Even Bonn's admirable pro-Israel stance
of the Jewish State's first years has been
modified sharply. Both West and East
Germany have assumed attitudes favoring
the PLO which do not equate with their
supposed strong stand against interna-
tional terrorism.
Significant Anniversaries
Kristallnacht is the first of several signi-
ficant anniversaries in November, includ-
ing the Balfour Declaration, the 1947
United Nations partition which established
the basis for the State of Israel and the
infamous UN resolution equating Zionism
with racism.
Horrors of the Night of the Broken Glass
are still real to the numerous Holocaust
survivors who now live in our community.
Their ominous warning can never be for-

Television And Intermarriage
in the early 1970s, a popular
situation comedy, "Brigette
Loves Bernie," drew consider-
able protest on account of its
context of a successful inter-
marriage between Jew and
Today, in contrast, the net-
works present several role
models of inter faith couples,
including Stuart Markovits
and Ann Kelsey of "L.A.
Law" and Michael and Hope
Steadman of "Thirtysometh-
Markovits's Jewishness
comes to the fore only in the
context of his mother-in-law's
anti-Semitism and the couple's
inability to agree on how to
raise their adopted baby.
The Steadmans, similarly,
have thus far failed to decide
how to raise their children, a
theme which symbolizes the
struggles and even the failures
of the yuppie generation.
Michael Steadman remains
torn between a healthy marri-
age to a Gentile woman and an
internal quest to link himself
with Judaism. Approaching
the anniversary of his father's
passing, Steadman begins to
question the meaning of his
Jewishness and the viability of
his intermarriage. Learning
that his wife is pregnant with a
second child, he wonders about
the future religious upbringing
of his children. Finally, Stead-
man returns to the synagogue
of his youth and discovers that
his people are "doing fine" a
remarkable statement on tele-
vision to the effect of the vital-
ity of Jewish life in America.
For those programs, inter-
marriage has been at most an
occasional theme. Generally, it
has been peripheral to the pri-
mary interests of the charac-
ters, surfacing only for partic-
ular programs, e.g., the
December dilemma of Christ-
mas or Chanukah.
This television season, how-
ever, features one program
which highlights an interfaith
relationship as it primary
theme: "Chicken Soup," star-
ring Jackie Mason and Lynn
The importance of tradition
is central to the program's
theme. Its main characters,
Jackie and Maddy, are quite
proud of their respective Jew-
ish and Catholic heritages.
That reverence for tradition
may explain the couple's reluc-
tance to pronounce the marital
However, both articulate the
overriding importance of love
and trust in a relationship over
allegiances to ethnicity and
faith. Religious differences in
their view become obsolete
when a couple shares common
social values. In fact, their
common commitment to help-
ing the underprivileged seems
to bind the couple.
Conversely, the opposition
to intermarriage expressed by
Mason's mother sounds like an
anachronism roughly equiva-
lent to the boorish anti-
Semitism of Maddy's brother,
The message, in short,
appears that interfaith rela-
tionships can be happy rela-
tionships, even if they do pre-
sent special family problems.
More tellingly, the taboo
against portraying successful
intermarriages on prime-time
television has fallen, reflecting
the growing legitimization of
intermarriage by the Ameri-
can viewing public.
To be sure, television will of
course claim that it at most
mirrors reality rather than
helps shape it. Most Jews,
however, do continue to marry
other Jews, but the only Jews
portrayed on prime-time tele-
vision appear to be those
involved in interfaith relation-
"Chicken Soup," in particu-
lar, despite Mason's much-
heralded positive Jewish iden-
tity, perpetuates negative
stereotypes of the Jewish fam-
ily. Jewish content is virtually
nil in the program, save for
vague tribalistic feelings for
fellow Jews and common oppo-
sition to anti-Semitism.
Jackie's mother embodies all
the negative imagery associ-
ated with the Jewish mother
overprotective, pushy to a
fault, and constantly prodding
her son to eat continually.
At a time when so much
effort is being made to streng-
then and revitalize Jewish life,
it is sad that the only Jewish
characters portrayed on televi-
sion express so little apprecia-
tion of their values and heri-
tage, except for the perpetua-
tion of outdated images and
stereotypes devoid of positive

Telling Half-a-story
Friday, November 10,1989
Volume 18
Number 22
For journalists dedicated to
their profession, it is sad to
consider the possibility that
colleagues distort some news
events and ignore others. We
know it happens, however, and
we know that the bottom-line
result is a diminution of credi-
bility for all of us.
That, in the end, is a far
worse blow to freedom of the
press than any attempt by
government to control the
news. If the people cannot
trust what they read and hear
and see, they lack an essential
tool of the democratic process.
A case in point is coverage of
Israel. Americans have a right
to know all of the facts before
making up their minds on the
special relationship between
the United States and Israel,
or whether to press Jerusalem
for more concessions in the
peace process, and the like.
They are not being given all
the facts, however.
Two news stories of recent
days point this out yet again.
The first involves Israel's
efforts to help victims of the
Trans-Siberian railway disas-
ter, who suffered serious
burns; the second, the banning
of Israel of three radical Mos-
lem fundamentalist groups in
the territories.
In the former case, the grati-

The inversion of history has
gained "day-by-day credibility,
and a generation is growing up
with it as fact," Wisse
asserted. This has occurred
through two phases estab-
lishing symmetry between the
two sides, and then turning
Israel into the aggressor.
"Explanations are calcu-
lated to conceal rather than
reveal the truth," she stated.
"Israel is on public trial as a
way of life. Instead of seeing
the conflict as a war of states
that want to destroy a neigh-
bor against a state that wants
to survive, the Arab war
against the Jews is turned into
an Israeli war against the
Palestinians. People want to
believe Jews are responsible.
If Jews, who are usually rea-
sonable and tolerant, are
responsible, then the problem
can be solved. But if the Arabs
are responsible, the outlook is
very bleak.
Alan Keyes, former U.S.
ambassador who appeared on
the panel discussion following
Days of Rage on PBS, offered
his analysis of the root of the
froblem of media bias against
srael. Stating that he doesn't
"watch TV news anymore as a
matter of principle," Keyes
lamented that "50 percent of
people get all their information
from TV and are living in a
fictionalized world."
"Why should the media sign
on to an underlying desire to
destroy Israel?" he asked. "Is
it done with good intention?
They think they are right, and
are motivated by a deep moral
commitment that justifies
their selectivity and enables
them to move from informa-
tion to persuasion."
There has been a "total shift
in concept, in the paradigm of
the Middle East," Keyes con-
tinued. "Instead of the issues
of peace, security and war, a
human rights paradigm has
been substituted. Once there is
the view that an innocent pop-
ulation is being oppressed and
deprived, and the victim has
been identified, there is no
patience with the details of
background and history. Emo-
tions are inflamed and there is
the urgency to do something
"This paradigmatic shift has
devastating implications," he
warned. "Days of Rage was
journalism that fit the para-
digm. There is no Arab role in
this conflict anymore, have
you noticed that? The para-
digm doesn't have room for
Calling the establishment of
a Jewish State "an insult to
the manhood of the Arab
which must be revenged,"
Keyes went on to condemn the
double standard which the
media "tacitly allows" by
ignoring Arab tyranny.
"Why do the so-called cham-
pions of Palestinian freedom
not champion it in Jordan,
which is mostly Palestinian,
even though the king recently
tried to change the census to
hide this fact?" Keyes
demanded. "In their demand
for democratic aspirations, the
Palestinians dare not speak
the name of freedom in the
Arab world. I am looked upon
as an ungodly heretic for cal-
ling for a truly representative

is the goal of the intifada.
Palestinians determine the
number of casualties by put-
ting women and children in the
front line. The U.S. has never
had a provocation comparable
to Israel's, yet it detained
Japanese-Americans in camps
with no due process,"
Dershowitz maintained.
Noting that the freest press
in the Arab world exists under
Israeli rule on the West Bank,
and that if there are elections
there it would be "the first
election ever in all of the Arab
world," Dershowitz said the
problem is not that the media
focuses too much on Israel, but
that it does not pay enough
critical attention to the Pales-
tinians, the PLO and the
"Here are some stories we

mentaries. These included: the
anti-Jewish aspects of the

support of the Chinese repres-
sion; Arab voices of dissent
against PLO terrorism ("a
very short show"); a history of
Arab democracy, election and
free speech ("another short
show"); what Arab children
are taught about Jews and
Israel ("That one could be

implications; and other state-

"Arab propagandists have
found a direct line into Ameri-
can classrooms. Under the
cruise of teaching peace, it
incites students against
Jews," Jacobs warned. Its
"moral equivalence" and
assertion that Jews and Arabs
basically got along before the
establishment of Israel is "a lie
wrapped in a fairytale," he
added. "If anti-Semitism is a
light sleeper, then PBS has
just placed 40,000 alarm clocks
in American classrooms."
Jerold Auerbach, professor
of history at Wellesley Col-
lege, spoke about The New
York Times. Beginning with
Thomas Friedman's coverage,
Auerbach went on to say that
"the more intriguing issue
here is the prolonged Jewish
identity problem" of the
"The Ochs and the Sulzber-
gers never wanted the paper
to seem too Jewish," he
reminded his audience. "If
Jews, as Friedman claims, are
the leading players in a biblical
superstory which intrigues the
West so much, then how does
one explain the Times' pro-
found silence during the Nazi
era?" After elucidating some
examples of the paper's rele-
gation of Holocaust news to
minor stories on inside pages,
Auerbach concluded, "Who
says history doesn't repeat
itself? The Times' coverage is
as problematic as ever."
David Wyman, the non-
Jewish author of The Aban-
donment of the Jews, was the
last speaker and he dared to
make a charge which none of
the Jewish speakers did: that
the "significant factor" in
media bias now as well as
during the Holocaust is anti-
"I have no hesitation in cal-
ling a spade a spade," he
asserted. "I am very particular
about leveling that charge, but
I am forced to that conclusion.
It is not intentional. The peo-
ple in the media would not
personally mistreat a Jew. But
beneath die surface, unconsci-
ous and uncrystallized, there is
a definite negativity toward
Jews that is deeply engrained
in Western society, the legacy
of 2000 years. Almost all non-
Jews are infected as children,
but each of us can confront
that prejudice and subdue it."
As an example he cited an
NBC radio broadcast of April
6, 1988 that referred to "the
killing ground known as the
West Bank" and "the daily
ritual of killing that takes
place" there. "Get it? Wyman
asked." Jews, killing, ritual.
Blood libel.
"I challenge the people of
the mass media today to
embark immediately on a
course of serious self-
examination," Wyman urged,
"regarding their feelings
about Jews, what they're
doing regarding Israel, why,
and what it may lead to." He
added that "Jews who have
allowed themselves to be
used" in the media's delegitim-
ization of Israel should also
engage in such self-

Page 8 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, November 10, 1989
38,000 Refugee Visas Processed by HI AS
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society, processed 38,000
Soviet Jewish emigres in
Europe in 1989, of whom more
than 90 percent were issued
U.S. refugee visas and air-
lifted to the United States
before the end of the fiscal
year on Sept. 30.
It was the largest number of
refugees processed by any sin-
gle agency in any 12-month
period since the end of World
War II, according to Karl
Zukerman, HIAS' executive
vice president.
Of the group, 28,750 came to
the United States with refugee
visas, the same number as in
1979, the record year for
Soviet- Jewish emigration.
The rest went to Canada and
The busiest day of the airlift
was Sept. 28, when 1,350
Soviet Jewish refugees arrived
in New York on eight consecu-
tive flights.
They landed just 48 hours
before the start of the new
fiscal year on Oct. 1, when the
INS would begin processing
Soviet Jewish candidates for
refugee status at the U.S.
Embassy in Moscow, instead
of in Rome or Vienna.
But HIAS will continue to
process the estimated 30,000
to 40,000 Jews in Vienna and
Rome who hold valid Soviet
exit permits dated before Oct.
According to HIAS, the
large number of refugee arriv-
als last month did not antici-
pate the shift in INS proce-
It was the standard end-of-
the-year push by the INS and
HIAS to bring as many refu-
gees into the country as per-
mitted by the quota within the
fiscal year.
Until President Bush signs
the 1990 Refugee Order, which
will limit Soviet refugees to
about 50,000, some 40,000 of
them Jews, no visas will be
issued, HIAS said.
