Called On For Help
The United States has enlisted
the help of France, Great Brit-
ain, Egypt and other countries
in lobbying the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization to take a
clearer stand against the
attack one of its constituent
groups tried to stage last
month on beaches near Tel
The diplomatic effort was
revealed by Secretary of State
James Baker during a hearing
of the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
His disclosure points to the
great lengths taken by the
United States to pressure the
PLO into making statements
that would allow the two par-
ties to continue their nearly
18-month-old dialogue.
"The PLO knows exactly
what it has to do," a well-
placed State Department offi-
cial said.
Britain, which has an anti-
terrorism policy close to that
of the United States, has asked
the PLO to "take steps against
any of their members who
have been involved" in the
raid, said an official of the
British Embassy here.
The French Embassy's chief
Middle East expert said his
country has simply conveyed
the "reality" of the U.S. posi-
tion to the PLO.
In principle, France does not
believe the PLO has to meet
U.S. demands as a condition
for continuing the dialogue,
said Gerard Araud, first
secretary at the embassy.
Araud said the French gov-
ernment has "no reason to
doubt" Arafat's claim that he
was not aware of the raid
beforehand. On that basis, the
PLO chief should not have to
make concessions "for some-
thing you are not responsible
for,' he said.
Baker said the United States
will make the decision without
the pressure of "artificial
deadlines." The reference
appears to be aimed at Israel
and its supporters, who have
already called for the dialogue
to be terminated.
The secretary of state said
the decision would have
"important implications" for
the Arab-Israeli peace process,
but that the United States
would not allow its pursuit of
peace to "undercut'' the U.S.
stand against terrorism.
Both Vice President Dan
Quayle and Defense Secretary
Dick Cheney told the 31st
annual policy conference of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee that the President
Bush had not yet made a deci-
sion on whether to suspend the
dialogue in the aftermath of a
foiled terrorist attack against
Israel last month by a PLO
constituent group.
The PLO issued a statement
from its headquarters m Tunis
and Amman, declaring, "We
remain against any military
action which targets civilians,
regardless of the nature of
such action, and we condemn
Many of the 1,500 persons
attending the AIPAC confer-
ence had clearly anticipated
that Quayle would announce a
suspension of the PLO dia-
logue, if not a complete break.
Although the vice president
was frequently applauded and
received a standing ovation at
the end of his speech, there
was an audible gasp of disap-
g>intment when he said that
ush had not yet made a deci-
But they did applaud when
Quayle said, "President Bush
will make the right decision."

executive director, called for

Soviet Trade Waiver
Urged By Moynihan

Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-

sions of the Jackson-vanik

A spokesman for NJCRAC,

national Jewish organizations
and 117 local community rela-
tions councils, explained that
the resolution's intent is to
urge communities to support
the President in any battle he
may have with Congress over
a waiver.
Resolution suggested Bush
should issue the waiver "in
response to Soviet assurances
that would clearly enunciate
the fundamental right to leave
and return."

Slim Edge
Israel has reacted with hurt
and astonishment to the stern
rebuke it got from U.S. Secret-
ary of State James Baker dur-
ing his appearance before the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee in Washington.
The secretary bluntly
accused Israel of not being
serious about peace. Attempts
by the Bush administration to
soften the blow did little to
soothe injured feelings here.
With their new government
in office only a few days the
Israelis feel unfairly pushed by
their American allies.
"Never mind 100 day^ of
grace, they're not even giving
the new government 100 hours
of grace," Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir's spokesman,
Avi Pazner, said.
"A little patience would be
in place to give the new gov-
ernment a chance to formulate
its policy," Pazner added.
Israeli officials complained
that President Bush had not
bothered telephoning Shamir
to congratulate him on form-
ing a new government, by a
slim 62 to 57 majority, nor had
he responded to Shamir's ear-
ier message of congratula-
tions on the president's 66th
Nor has there been any
American response yet to
broad hints from the new fore-
ign minister, David Levy, for
an early invitation to Washing-
ton to meet with Bush and

Neo-Nazis Strike In Orlando
neo-Nazi skinhead incident in
Orlando, has brought to light
the problem of hate-group
activity in Florida and the
steps that are currently being
taken to combat it.
"Hate-motivated crime is a
serious problem," said Arthur
Teitelbaum, Florida regional
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. "At the moment we're
seeing a distressing increase in
these crimes."
Florida, which reported 66
incidents of bias-related crime
in 1989, is one of the "big
five," the states with the high-
est number of reported hate
crimes in the country, accord-
ing to the ADL annual Audit of
Anti-Semitic Incidents.
Latest incident occurred
June 4 at a housing project in
Orlando, where a group of
neo-Nazi skinheads sprayed
the outer walls of an apart-
ment with swastikas and anti-
Semitic slogans and shattered
windows with large iron bars.
The victim, Richard Nichols,
was not Jewish, but had once
been married to a Jewish
woman. The four shaven-
headed youths, all 18 and 19
years old, are self-proclaimed
white supremacists and punk
All parties involved were
intoxicated, according to the
Orlando Police Department
report, and the incident took
on some of the characteristics
of a drunken brawl. The
crimes are nevertheless pun-

Crimes Act for their overt
anti-Semitic intent.
The youths were arrested
and charged with kidnapping,
aggravated assault, burglary,
criminal mischief, impersonat-
ing a police officer and inter-
fering with a police officer.
"They are nothing but a
bunch of punks coming from
middle- class, white homes,"
said Randy Means, spokesman
for the Orlando state attorney.

In May, windows in an

Orlando police were tipped off
to a neo-Nazi telephone
recording which featured seg-
ments of Hitler's speeches and
lessons in how to kill a Jew.
The recording was discon-
nected as soon as the police
began to investigate.
Orlando has experienced tre-
mendous growth over the last
decade. Means attributes the
increasing bias-related vio-
lence to the growing number
of minorities that have moved
into the city. As he says, "we
were just a country city until
10 years ago."

city in Florida experiencing

In Washington, a State
Department official said that
neither Shamir nor Levy had
asked the United States for
invitations to visit.
The State Department also
made the point that it is wait-
ing for Israel to approach the
United States on restarting
the peace process, which so
far Israel has not done.

ter intended to renew the high-
level dialogue with the United
States "soon" and was confi-

violence of this type.' In
Tampa, swastikas were
recently painted on the walls
of an apartment complex and
at a construction site.
The entire state, with its
high concentrations of Hispa-
nic immigrants and post-
retirement Jews, has been
experiencing heightened eth-
nic conflict.
"Florida's high level of hate
crime incidents is partially due
to its large Jewish commun-
ity," said Alan Schwartz,
director of the ADL's research
and evaluation department.
"They provide more targets of
opportunity for organized Ku
Klux Klan," neo- Nazi and
New Alliance Party activity.
But Teitelbaum thinks the
problem is more socio-
economic than ethnic. "Bias
crimes are not geographically
specific. They occur in greater
frequency where there is a
considerable amount of eco-
nomic and social dislocation.
Many times these crimes occur
as a consequence of organized
extremist groups trying to
exploit intergroup tensions,"
he said.
Because of the seriousness
of the hate-crimes problem,
the Florida State Legislature
last year passed one of the
toughest hate-crimes acts in
the country. It became effec-
tive in October 1989.

But it did not say the Presi-
dent should insist on Soviet
adoption of promised legisla-
tion that would codify reforms
in emigration policy.
In New York, Moynihan said
the Jackson-Vanik waiver
should be granted "without
the impediment of any addi-
tional conditions that did not
appear in the original legisla-
tion," an apparent reference
to the campaign in Congress to
link the waiver to Lithuania's
bid for independence.
Current Soviet emigration
rate, which could mean as
many as 120,000 Jews leave
the country this year, more
than fulfills the amendment's
waiver requirement, he said.
The senator also called for
the Soviet Union's help in
repealing the 1975 U.N. reso-
lution equating Zionism with
racism. He urged the Soviet
Union to "take a leadership
role in the growing interna-
tional campaign to repeal the
obscene 1975 U.N. General
Assembly resolution."

UCLA Students Fight
Chabad Dorm Takeover

Number 13
Residents of a Jewish student
housing cooperative picketed
the Los Angeles headquarters
of Chabad to protest what they
see as a takeover of their
residence to convert it into a
shelter for homeless men.
Some 40 residents and sup-
porters of the Westwood Bayit
marched in front of the nearby
Chabad building, chanting
"Save our Bayit/' and "Hell
no, we won't go!"
Chabad attorneys said that
the Hasidic movement
acquired legal title to the Bayit
last December, following a
period of financial difficulties,
health department violations
and physical deterioration at
the 20-bed residence on
UCLA's fraternity row.

founded in the early 1970s by

Mandela Delegation Questioned
For a delegation of representatives of
several American Jewish organizations to
go to Geneva to meet with the Pope is in
order. For such a delegation to have gone
there to meet Nelson Mandela of the
African National Congress is not.
And the statement that the group issued,
in effect calling on American Jewry not to
demonstrate against Mandela during his
visit to the United States and praising him
for saying Israel has a right to exist, was
even less correct.
Our Jewish community in the United
States is not, and should not be, monolithic.
The Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Congregations does and
should speak out on matters on which
organized Jewry has a consensus. A "pick-
up" delegation completely lacks that
This is not to say that Mandela should be
either boycotted or picketed. But he should
be judged on his actions in the light of his
open embrace of the PLO and its chairman,
Yasir Arafat.
Likewise, Mayor David Dinkins was off
target when he asked Jewish groups to
cancel scheduled protests of Mandela's

Leon Klinghoffer, a wheel-

New York, was shot and
thrown off the Achille Lauro
cruise ship by members of the
Palestine Liberation Front
who had seized the cruise ship
in the Mediterranean.
The front, a PLO constituent
group headed by Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas, has also been
linked to a failed terrorist
attack May 30 on beaches out-

Mandela, Sharanksy Set

son Mandela and Natan Shar-

to meet in the United States

leader confirmed.
"Both sides have indicated

Foxman said that the plans
for the meeting grew out of an
exchange with Mandela at the
meeting. Mandela told the
delegation he was not sure if
he would have time to meet
with American Jewish leaders
while in the United States.
"I said it would be better if
you met with Natan Shar-
ansky, a friend of mine and a
hero of the Jewish people,"
Foxman recounted.

As he would do in Geneva six
days later, the African
National Congress' deputy
president apologized to a
group of Jewish leaders for
remarks made after his release
from prison in February that
might have offended the Jew-
ish community.
Mandela has been critical of
Israel's policies and supportive
of the Palestinian cause. He
upset many Jews by his physi-
cal and spiritual embrace of
Yasir Arafat, chairman of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, in Lusaka, Zambia, at the
end of February, less than
three weeks after he was freed
from prison.
At that time and again later,
Mandela stated his solidarity
with the Palestinians and drew
an analogy between their suf-
fering and that of black South
Africans. He said that if "the
truth hurts the Jews, that's
too bad."__________________

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
"And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up. and
all the men that appertained unto Korak"
(Num. le.St)-
KORAH Korah, son of Izhar, and Dathan and Abiram, sons of
Eliab, led a rebellion of 250 men who refused to accept the
leadership of Moses and Aaron. Moses tried in vain to persuade
them that ail was being done according to God's will. Finally, God
Himself acted. "And it came to pas*... that the ground did cleave
asunder that was under them. And the earth opened her mouth,
and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men
that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. So they... went
down alive into the pit; and the earth closed upon them, and they
perished from among the assembly... And fire came forth from
the Lord, and devoured the two hundred and fifty men" (Number*
16.31-35). To prove that Aaron had indeed been chosen by God for
his priestly function, Moses instructed every tribe to place its rod
near the Ark of the Covenant; miraculously, Aaron's rod
sprouted. Thus ended the controversy over the priesthood. The
portion proceeds to describe the various emoluments that the
priests and Levites received.

JNF Plays Major Role
In Absorbing Soviet Olim
The thousands of new immi-
grants arriving monthly at
Ben-Gurion International Air-
port are a vivid expression of
the fulfillment of a cherished
dream for all Israelis. This
soul-stirring human drama
that has been unfolding each
day since the opening of the
gates of the Soviet Union is
the latest phase in the
triumphant march of the Zion
ist vision. Projections of
150,000 or more new immi-
grants arriving in Israel each
year are no longer fantasy, but
are based firmly in current
Fulfillment of the Zionist
dream is evident in the over-
whelming response of Israelis,
who have opened their homes
and their hearts to help the
new immigrants feel that they
have a place in the Jewish
state. Planning for the absorp-
tion of immigrants on such a
monumental scale, however,
would have been impossible
were it not for the fact that the
land on which they are settling
is owned by the Jewish people,
who can determine how that
land can best be developed to
serve vital national needs and
The Jewish National Fund is
privileged to be one of the
cornerstones of the challenge
presented by today's massive
wave of immigration and the
need to ensure effective
absorption. It is devoting the
best of its energies, through its
Operation Promised Land
campaign, to the urgent devel-
opment of land in the Galilee,
Jerusalem and Negev regions
for the settlement of the new
Intensive land development
is required so that the most
fundamental needs of the
immigrants can be met rapidly
and efficiently. It is a hercu-

of access roads to connect
newly-established immigrant
communitites with major high-
ways, and for preparing the

JNF is also developing land
in order to make possible the
major housing projects being
carried out with the Ministry
of Housing and Construction.
Land development was
recently completed for a large
new residential district in the
southern port city of Eilat, and
plans are underway for similar
development in Tiberias and
Ashdod, as well as in rural
centers and community vil-
lages throughout the Negev
and Galilee.
JNF's land development
activities are devoted not only
to providing effective com-
munity growth, but also to
enabling isolated towns and
rural communities to create
employment opportunities
through development projects
that will attract large numbers
of new residents.
In the Negev town of Mitzpe
Ramon, JNF is widening
access roads, building roads to
various scenic attractions and
creating recreational areas,
including a sculpture garden
and a zoological park. With the
resulting expansion of employ-
ment opportunities, Mitzpe
Ramon has become a more
attractive place to live and
Other development towns
are currently engaged in nego-
tiations with JNF on projects
for the enhancement of both
land resources and tourism.
For example, JNF is scheduled
to establish a tourist center in
the upper Galilee community
of Ma alot. This project should
significantly boost local
employment opportunities.
Elsewhere in the Galilee, as
well as in the Negev, JNF is
building new roads to ensure
efficient communication links
from outlying villages to major
population centers and to each
other. Such arteries are neces-
sary for attracting new set-
tlers and developing the
regions' economies.
Water is the source of life,
and an essential resource for
all economic activities. Israel
suffers from a chronic water
shortage, aggravated by two
consecutive years of drought.
Growing demands of a rapidly
expanding population further
compound this problem. JNF
has therefore undertaken
major projects to construct
and expand reservoirs, which
will add millions of cubic met-
ers of water to the country's
supply of this vital resource.
Today's massive wave of
immigration also demands
much effort in the area of
social integration. JNF's edu-
cational staff is gearing up for
a comprehensive program
designed to ease the culture
shock of immigrant youth by
bringing them into closer con-
tact with their Israeli counter-
parts and with the landscape
of Israel.
During the coming summer
season, a thousand young olim

camps, where they will have
the opportunity to get to know
fount people from all over
srael and familiarize them-
selves with the country.
The tens of thousands of
olim coming to live in Israel
constitute history in the mak-
ing. JNF's vision is the
redemption of the land of
Israel in the name of the Jew-
ish people, for the sake of the
Jewish people, and with the
help of the Jewish people.
"Today, more than ever
before, we must do everytJiing
