Il^y^mm
Arab influence becoming stronger at colleges
By PETER ALTMAX
Editor's Note: Peter Alt man is
a graduate student in the "Con-
temporary Arab Studies" pro-
gram at Georgetown University,
Washington. D.C. He wrote this
article for HAKOL, the news-
paper voice of the Jewish Federa-
tion of AUentown. Pa., and is
here reprinted with permission
from HAKOL. It describes the
strong force of the Arab influence
on the Georgetown campusa
situation which is evident at
other college campuses around
the country.
Arab propaganda is not
peculiar to Georgetown. It is, in
fact, prevalent on a large number
of American campuses. However,
it is much more pronounced and
discernable at Georgetown and
hence easier to analyze. But first,
it is important to remember that
Arab propaganda at the univer
ahy level Is solely aimed at
weakening Israel's future stand-
ing among the American public.
After all, it makes sense to aim
one's efforts at future leaders
who have not yet made up their
minds on major issues.
The great effectiveness of Arab
propaganda comes from the fact
that it is presented in an
academic surrounding and there-
fore is given legitimacy in the
eyes of moat college student*.
How many of us would even
question the underlying inten-
tions of an entire department if
we did not have a personal stake
in countering the effects of their
efforts? And here, with the mas-
sive effort currently being under-
taken by Arab governments and
assorted friends and allies, we do
have that personal stake. Yet
even now, when the challenge
from Arab propaganda has never
Israel's Consul General grieves for
innocents killed in bombing of
U.S. Embassy in Beirut
Joel Arnon, Israel's Consul General serving
Florida and Puerto Rico, last week deplored the
bombing on April 18 of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut,
causing many deaths and injuries of American and
Lebanese personnel working in the building.
He said: "I would like to express the sorrow of my
government for all those innocent people killed in
Beirut. We, in Israel, know as much as anyone what
it is to live in fear of terrorism.
"This shows terrorists will not shy away from
anything ... we cannot rest while terrorists are at
work on our borders."
Reports out r. Beirut indicated that the Islamic
Jihad Organization which took responsibility for the
bombing is believed to be an underground group
associated with Moslem Shiite fundamentalists in
Lebanon, who support the Iranian leader, Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini. Jihad is the Arabic term for
'holy war."
These Moslem militants are also associated with
about 350 Iranian revolutionary guards who were
rushed to Lebanon last June to fight against the
Israelis who were fighting to drive the PLO guerrillas
out of the country. These revolutionaries have
remained in Baal beck and call their group "Party of
God."
Evacuation of these Iranians from Lebanon is now
listed by the Lebanese government in its demand for
withdrawal of all foreign forces, but the government
has little or no control of the group in Baalbeck,
I^ebanon, which Lebanese newspapermen have
dubbed the city "the Islamic Republic of Ayatollah
Khomeini."

been bigger, we remain com-
placent and unaware.
In approaching this topic,
there are a few questions which
must be dealt with.
1. Why Arab propaganda on
campus?
2. How do they do it?
3. Jewish response what,
how and who?
The why is simple. It is, as
stated above, an investment in
the future They know that they
cannot easily convince those who
lived through World War II to
abandon Israel. However, it
could be much easier in a genera-
tion to convince the American
public to do so after constantly
confronting it with an image of
an I arael villifled beyond recogni-
tion. In other words, they are at
this moment busy cutting off Is-
rael's supply of goodwill at the
source.
Talking about the threat of
Arab propaganda in the abstract
is not likely to awaken many
Jews to the awesome problem
with which they are faced. There-
fore, I've decided to dispense
with an overall general outline of
Arab propaganda on campuses in
order to describe instead the well
run operation at Georgetown
University. This will explain the
"How."
Few Arab Contacte
I started my Master's degree
program in Contemporary Arab
Studies at Georgetown because
of past experiences in Israel. I
felt that not enough attention
had been given to building per-
sonal bridges between Jews and
Arabs. Too few Jews knew
Arabic and even fewer Israelis
really felt comfortable in Arab
homes.
I had had some success in
breaking down the barrier in the
past and hoped that Georgetown
would help me find the frame-
work in which I could pursue my
contacts with Arabs on a more
constructive level. However, I
quickly realized that Georgetown
was not the right place. I have
more recently learned from
AIPAC and other sources, many
of them even more direct, that
the US college campus, in
general, is not the place.
Simply put, Palestinians and
others have not come in order to
search oat Jews with whom they
can speak.Rapprocehementis the
farthest thing from their minds.
They have come with a different
purpose.
Palestinian students are
mobilized for study in America.
There are advertisements in West
Bank and Jerusalem papers ad-
vertising scholarships for those
Palestinians who would like to
study in American universities.
This is necessary for a successful
propaganda machine in America
as Arabs are otherwise lacking in
wide grassroots support.
These Palestinian students are
well informed and highly moti-
vated. They feel that they are
doing something for their home-
land and for themselves by help-
ing to advance the Palestinian
cause. On the other hand, Israel,
for most American Jews, is a
homeland only in a very narrow
sense. Very few Jewish college
students will expend their
energies in fighting Arab
propaganda as if it were a threat
to their own homes and
families.This explains the
relatively high level of Arab
activism in comparison to Jewish
activism on many campuses.
Accepting Arab Money
Georgetown is the most note-
worthy campus with regard to
deep Arab inroads vis-a-vis cam-
pus life, coarse offerings, lec-
turers, and special events. The
metamorphosis of Georgetown
from a somewhat prestigious
Washington school to a some-
what infamous center for the dis-
semination of anti-Israel "in-
formation" started with the Uni-
versity accepting huge sums of
money from various Arab states
and oil corporations. The list of
donors is as long as it is
illuminating. Do the Arab
Emirates, Kuwait, or Saudi
Arabia really give money with no
strings attached?
At about the time that these
very generous donations were re-
ceived (no doubt by an
economically strapped and grate-
ful institution), a Center for Con-
temporary Arab Studies was set
up. Its stated goal was to ad-
vance understanding between the
American and Arab peoples. It
has since become clear that this
Center has tended to stress the
Arab-Israel dispute and that the
"understanding" hat been
directed overwhelmingly in the
direction of the hard line Arab
point of view.
Subtle Anti-Semitism
The Arab Studies Department
offers numerous courses which
deal intensively with the Arab-
Israel dispute. The courses all
have different names: they all
claim to deal with different is-
sues. In reality, it is a safety net
for those who fear that some
students would miss hearing the
Arab point of view. Many
students including under-
graduates. Foreign Service
students, and political science
majors take at least one of these
courses. Thus, the Center reaches
a wide number of students with
their message of deep hostility
and contempt for the Jewish

Despite Alienation, Israel at 35 A Great
.a
Israel celebrates its 36th anniversary in
an atmosphere of greater world alienation
than ever before. At a time when, one
would think, the success of a young nation
should be something for mankind to gloat
about, this is hardly the case.
A large part of the world, specifically in
the Middle East, is not only not committed
to Israel's success. On the contrary, it
pledges itself to Israel's destruction.
But even among the celebrant's so-
called friends, the sense of cordiality and
best-wishes is hardly what it used to be. It
is difficult, for example, to note the change
in attitude among the nations of Europe,
where Jews lived uninterruptedly for
almost two millenia, and where the
religiously-inspired tyranny against them
was brought to fever pitch in the Hitlerian
Holocaust.
Since that outrageous event, the
Europeans have shown a solicitousness and
spirit of contrition rare in the pages of their
history. But no longer.
Nor, indeed, is this reevaluation of at-
titude toward Israel confined to that
continent. Our own country, which was
first to recognize the State of Israel back in
1948, today castigates it at every turn. If
one is to judge by the Reagan
Administration's Secretary of Defense,
Caspar Weinberger, the real enemy in the
Middle East today is Israel.
Fortunately, not every American thinks
this way. Nor does every European. As Mr.
Reagan finds himself more and more these
days in the position of his late friend, John
Wayne, circling the wagons to fight off the
charge against his Administration and its
policies on virtually every front, it must
surely begin to strike him that not all of his
woes are the fault of others. Some of them,
he must come to see, are of his own making.
If the President has not yet come to that
self-revelation, fortunately the Congress of
the United States in the past few weeks has
shown itself to be a continuing good friend
of Israel, restoring the cuts in aid to Israel
that the Administration asked for in its
new budget proposals and even increasing
it, while holding back on a favorite Reagan
proposal the sale of F -16 jet-fighters to
Jordan until King Hussein shows a
ready willingness to join the Israelis in
peace talks unconditionally.
Another Terrorist Act
As Israelis and Jews throughout the
world are stirred by the meaning of this
35th anniversary of independence
celebration, we in America are grieved by
the dastardly attack by Palestinian
terrorists Monday on the American
Embassy in Beirut.
This comes at a particularly dangerous
time, when the Reagan Administration has
placed a further halt on the sale of 75 F-16's
to Israel until the Israelis agree to an
unconditional withdrawal of its forces from
Lebanon. This is a pre-condition that Prime
Minister Begin absolutely rejected in his
Independence Day address televised to the
nation on Sunday.
Inevitably, there will be those who will
say that the fate of the shockingly large
number of dead and injured in the terrorist
Jewish FlorVdian
attack may be laid at the feet of "in-
transigent" Israel. But the Israelis know
by brutal experience what America andjthe
Europeans have yet to learn: There is na
dealing with the terrorists; therefore no
concessions that can be made in the name
of consummating a mutually agreed-upon
deal; nothing will satisfy the Palestinian
terrorists but the absolute destruction of
Israel. The lengths to which they will go to
prove the point included the bombing
Monday of the American Embassy in
Beirut.
As Americans, we are incensed bv the-'
deed. As Jews and as friends of Israel, we
suggest that it is about time that terra* like
"intransigent" as applied to Israel be set
aside by those who purport to be Israel's
friends and that a growing awareness sefea'
them that concessions must be a two-way
street.
As Israel marks Its 35th anniversary,
despite world events, it has great cauaeto
be proud of its most remarkable
achievements in so short a space of timej&
do we have great cause to be proud. Andtoj
too, ought Israel's once moat yrapathetit

Arnold Foster on UN anti-Semitism
Arnold Forster, noted New York based
attorney and author of nine books on the
subjects of civil rights and anti-Semitism,
his most recent book being The New Anti-
Semitism, wrote a penetrating article which
appeared in Penthouse magazine.
Entitled "The U.N.: International Center
of Anti-Semitism," Forster challenged the
reader with "American taxpayers should
take a close look at this world body (UN),
whose hatred of Americans almost equals its
hatred of Jews. Currently, we are picking up
25 percent of the UN's operations! costs.
Perhaps it is time to discontinue this largess
and let those who have captured and
disfigured a noble dream, pay the bill for
their perversion."
Forster cites United States Ambassador
to the United Nations, Jeanne J. Kirk-
patrick, as the most vocal and outspoken
leader in the UN, as condemning that body
for its hypocritical and perverted record of
abusing human rights. Citing the silence of
the UN in the face of a 'shocking resurgence
of attacks against Jews in the world and the
denial of civil liberties to hundreds of
thousands of Russian Jews.' The passionate,
finger-pointing Mrs. Kirkpatrick, who also
has the support of President Reagan,
believes that these serious charges must be
'leveled loud, clear, and repeatedly.'
The article continues, "It is sad that the
very organization that came into existence
nearly 40 years ago, in an effort to make real
the dream of worldwide harmony and un-
derstanding, has now become the in-
ternational switchboard of hatred against
Jews in general and against the Jewish State
of Israel in particular." Evidence of this
statement lies in the silence of the majority
of nations toward the plight of Jews whose
rights and lives are destroyed or trampled
upon. More dangerous and vicious in action
is the anti-Semitism that seeks to eliminate
the State of Israel as a formal Jewish entity.
Two facts blatantly stand out: in 1980
exactly one-half of all the resolutions
adopted by the Security Council condemned
Israel and secondly, nearly 100 resolutions of
the same character passed the General
Assembly.
The focus of this obscene rhethoric is tha I
Israel as a nation has no legitimate right to
survive and aside from Mrs. Kirkpatrick 3
President Reagan, most Western nations
have succumbed to an anti-Zionist, anti-
Jewish, anti-Israel campaign, written and
directed by an Arab-Soviet partnership.
The linking of Zionism as racism by the
Communist and Arab nations in 1975 forged 1
one of the most dangerous weapons of Arab I
propaganda ever conceived. Seduced by
promises of massive financial grants,
military arms, and oil, assorted Third Wosjj
nations assisted and aligned themselves m
the Arab-Soviet bloc to accomplish thegoall
Zionism, before the State of Israel came
into being, meant a belief in the need forth*'
re-establishment of a Jewish State in
Palestine. Since 1948, it has taken on an
additional meaning namely, that the Jewish j
State HAS a right to exist in peace and
security.
Active and evil imaginations have
asserted that the Jews "are an imaginary
people who never existed in fact, do not mm]
exist, never experienced the Holocaust, and f
are not entitled to the rights accorded
genuine nations."
Such undisguised hatred is blatantly
published in many U N publications. The
once hallowed halls of the Security Council
were privy to the words of the late Saudi
Arabian Ambassador Jamil Baroody who
declared that "the Nazi Holocaust was
simply fiction and Anne Frank's diary,a
transparent forgery." Only the ambassador
of the Netherlands in whose country Anne
Frank lived, rose to challenge the lie.
The hatred for Jews displayed in the UNil
especially disturbing in the light of the many |
overt signs that anti-Semitism is on the rise
throughout the world. Ominous warnings,
largely ignored by the world and mostclearij]
by the UN, are major chinks in the purpose
of the UN, namely, that its creation was
designed to strengthen understanding
among the polyglot peoples of the earth-
Has the United Nations become another
Tower of Babel' whose ultimate will be to

Smith secures aid, assurances for Israel
Broward's Congressman Larry
Smith led the way in the alloca-
tion of more aid to Israel during
the markup of the Foreign Aid
Budget and used the meeting
of the House Subcommittee on
Europe and the Middle East to
insist that advanced military aid
to Jordan be tied to that nation's
participation in the peace
process.

and other members of tha Sub- tion Act which, if passed by Cost-
committee voted to reiect the --------

mittee, "strongest in commit
ment to democracy and peace,

Among the many Holocaust survivors from
North Broward at the American Gathering were
(third and second from right) Norman and Rose
Gitler of Tamarac, who managed to have a
reunion with other survivors.
Following the breakfast, they
took Shaw on a tour of the Holo-
caust exhibits, art and literature
works smuggled oat of concen-
tration and death camps, and
later attended an informal meet-
ing of the House Foreign Arrairs'
Subcommittee on Foreign Aid
and Mideast Affairs where they
learned of the request to seek
additional aid for Israel in the
form of grants.
Reagan spoke of people who

I lioiisaixls of Jews from the Nazi
' imans.

t li.ll I heir names will be inscribed
in our memory until the end of all
limes But. remember, my
friends, they served as an indict-
ment because they proved that it
could \k done. It was possible to
save Jews, but not enough tried,
not enough dared."
Continuing his talk, Wiesel
noted that there was "only one
land and one people ready to em-
brace us that land was Israel
. therefore, to remember
means to be faithful to Israel."
New York's Mayor Edward
Koch, another of the speakers
luring the four-day Gathering,
jrged the thousands during the
.losing ceremony on the grounds
of the Washington Monument to
"remain ever vigilant, ever alert,
to the threat of those who skill-
fully stroke the fires of anti-
Semitism."
Among the scores from North
Broward who took part in the
(athering were Rose and Nor-
man Gitler of Tamarac. Living in
Poland in the town of Bendzin
near the German border, Rose
Gitler said the Germans moved in
in 19-fO. putting Jews into the
ghetto. She was a teenager living
with her parents, an older sister,
and a 13 year-old brother.
The Germans, she reported,
burned the synagogues, harassed
the Jews, and in 1943 crammed
Jews into cattle cars with the
train rolling on to Auschwitz. As
she peeked through an opening of
the train, a burst of fire from
German SS menwatching the
train hit her in the hips. When
the train arrived in Auschwitz,
she was carried bloodied from the
train, while parents and other
relatives were taken to the death
camp. She never saw them again.
She underwent an operation to
have iiv bullet removed. "From
lluil time I was lucky. They liked
me. and I remained in the hos-
pital as a worker."
Her husband, an ardent Zion-
ist worked as a librarian for the
Zionist organization in Bendzin.
In 1942, the Germans sent Gitler
lo a lalxn camp. And in the in-
terveiung years until liberation,
1m- was moved from camp to
tamp, ending up at Bergen-Bel-
sen. about a half-mile from
Belsen. where his future wife, a
levn-age sweetheart, had been
taken. Liberated in 1945, they re-
mained in a liberation camp, were
married in 1946, and came to the
United Slates in 1949.
The Gitlers. she is 59. he is 65,
pray, like Jews do everywhere,
that a genocide should not hap
|m*ii again They, though, are
skeptical that a holocaust can't
happen again, because, Norman
Gitler said: "Why do they always
pick on Jews. Why do they
always want us to be the scape-
goats all the time?" But then, he
added, "we do have faith,
because without faith we
wouldn't be alive."
There were stories by the hun-
dreds as Survivors met people
they hadn't seen in years; as
some people were able to match
their names with other names in
the computer banks of thousands
of names of Holocaust Survivors.
One of the survivors drawing
considerable attention was U.S.
Senator Rudy Bnschwitz
(R.-Minn.) who was only two
years old when his family left
Germany in 1933, just several
months after Hitler came to
power. "We went from country to
country seeking admittance into
the United Slates. Eventually,
we were able to gain admit-
tance," but before they were, he
said.
"My family was in Uruguay
and South Africa, Kenya and
Sh.mghai and Cuba. If wc soein
to have a great affinity for the
Slate of Israel, il is rooted in the
traveling of that little boy from
country to country Our his-
tory indicates thai, indeed, Israel
must live."
Another member of Congress,
Hep. Sam Gejdenson of Connec-
t ii ut. Im> the son of survivors in
a displaced persons camp in Ger-
many, was another speaker dur-
ing Ihe Gathering. He opened his
speech talking in Yiddish, and
closed in Knglish wilh the widely-
repealed statement by German
Pastor Niemoeller:
"In Germany. fir* for the Communists, and I did
not speak out for I was not a
communist.
"And then they came for the
trade unionists, and again I did
not speak out because I was not a
trade unionist.
"And then they came for the
Catholics, and again I knew it
was wrong, but I did not speak
up because I was not a Catholic.
"And then they came for me,
and by that time, it was too bite.
For there was no one to speak
up."
Liberators were among those
honored as the Gathering paid
their respects to the dead at
Arlington Cemetery. Among the
survivors at the Gathering was
Rabbi Hershel Schecter of New
York who remembered April 11,
1945, vividly. That was the day
38 years ago when he, as a
chaplain in the U.S. Army,
helped liberate "that hell hole
called Buchenwald."
And the firstand many
think, the only American
Gathering of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors on the scale of the one
which commemorated the Holo-
caust and the 40th anniversary of
the Warsaw Ghetto uprising
closed with tears of joy and
anguish for so many thousands
at this reunion.

seling to individuals and families

tolled. Since all relationst.
I its clients are confidential,

I cant cope with this
my house anymore.'
"Help,
chaos in
These were the words Mrs. Z
cried during her first counseling
session.
She had called the agency with
the problem of "my daughter's
on drugs and I can't cope any-
more."
Mrs. Z is a 47 year old
divorcee, with a 23 year old
daughter, Becky, who is living
with her and is actively using
drugs.
She said Becky was a high-
school drop-out and had roamed
the streets for yeans. Only recent-
ly she moved back home as she
had been beaten up.
Mrs. Z stated that Becky
would not come in for therapy
with her and wanted to know
what to do. The social worker
told Mrs. Z that from what she
was telling about Becky's
drug history and her behavior,
Becky needed to be in a residen-
tial drug program.
As she and the social worker
talked, it became apparent that
Mrs Z felt Becky's drug usage
developed because she must have
iH'cn a bad mother The worker
lold her that together they could
work on this issue, but first
Becky must enter a drug pro
gram. Mrs. Z believed Becky
would not go into a program and
how could she kick her daughter
out of the house What if some-
thing bad was to happen to
Becky?
The worker explained to Mrs. Z
that V Becky is of age and only
Becky can be responsible for
what happens to her. If she
chooses to use drugs and not go
into a program, she cannot do it
in Mrs. Z's house.
After talking at length Mrs. Z
was able to see she was
doing her daughter a disservice
by condoning her drug Life. What
she thought was helping her
daughter was only perpetuating
this behavior. Mrs. Z felt she now
Had the strength to go home and
tell Becky, "It's your life and if
you want to use drugs you must
leave my house. If you want my
support and help you have no al-
ternative but to enter a drug pro-
gram."
Another appointment was
made for Mrs. Z and a tentative
appointment for Becky at a drug
program.
With much anger and resis-
tance Becky went into the drug
program.
As therapy progressed Mrs. Z
was able to come to terms with
herself as an "O.K." mother and
not feel guilty over the fact that
Becky used drugs. Mrs Z also
learned how to sav no without
feeling guilty.
Two years have elapsed and
Becky is working in Dade County
as a secretary. She is leading a
clean, healthy and productive
life. Mrs Z and Becky now have a
relationship based on honesty as
two adults rather than one based
on manipulation and testing.

Broward chapter of National
Conference of Christians and
Jews (NCCJ) thanks you very
much for the extraordinary
coverage The Jewish Floridian
gave the NCCJ Holocaust
Commemoration.
All of the articles in your paper
brought to the community in a
moving and significant way the
story of this tragic event and the
necessity for our always
remembering it.
We appreciate the cooperation
the Jewish Floridian has always
given NCCJ and the important
role your paper plays in fostering
better understanding between all
groups in our community.

On the front page of the April 8
issue of the paper, in the lead
article about the repression of the
Jews in the USSR, reporter Wolf
Blitzer is quoted as praising
Secretary of State Georgt Shuitz

trained engineers, tor the Mechtel

keep the record clear on thii

W e m : : remember that the
Bi chtel Co under Shulu
and Weinberger, also had a
policy, at the behest of the ArikJ
for not dealing with Israel in 3
manner. It is very evident totW
day that both men are still pro.
Arab in their feelings and deal-
ings.
I think it is about time thattsrl
Jews in this country turn their I
emphasis away from the plight J
the comparatively few dissidegT
Jews in the USSR, to the enor I
mous threat that Israel is faciv |
in being surrounded by such b*.
ter enemies and not having a
friend in the whole world, beskki I
our country.
But we also must remember
that the Reagan administration
seems to be having a definite pr> I
Arab tilt in its dealings with
Israel. We must also give more ''
attention to the Nazi element*
that seem to be getting stronger
in France. West Germany,
Argentina and even in this
country.
In the long run, we must
remember thai ihe iiest hopefor
peace in the world, is an
agreement to this effect betweea |
the two Super-Powers. Just
remember how Nixon's
popularity soared when he

Today. Israel boasts more than
2900 educational institutions and
over "6.000 teachers.
In 1948. Israel's 66 hospitals
provided 4620 beds: in 1983.
27.500 beds are available in 48
hospitals throughout the
country. Israel's doctor to
populnt ion rat io of 1:415 is one of
the highest in the world. Over 90
percent of Israel's population
receives comprehensive medical
care through one of the com-
pany's voluntary health in-
surance programs.
From a semi-agricultural
economy 35 years ago. Israel has
rapidly developed into a modern
industrial state, whose gross na-
I ioiiiil product has increased more
than tenfold. Today Israel is
almost self sufficient in food
supply and its production for
export is shifting to technology-
based industries. Finance, trans-
portation, communications,
construction and other facilities
are highly developed to serve the
country's growing economy.
From $28 million in 1949.
Israel's net export of goods has
climbed to some $4.8 billion in
19S2. Today more than 90 per-
cent of all export goods are in-
dustrial products. including
polished diamonds, processed
foods, textik's. chemicals and
plastics. Recently, over 25
percent of Israel's industrial
out put has been high-technology
electronic equipment, much of
which has developed as a result of
close collaboration between Is-
rael's scientific research centers
and local manufacturers. About
half of Israel's exports go to
European countries and about 20
percent to the United States.
ISRAEL'S agricultural econo-
my has traditionally been based
on citrus. However, virtually
every kind of farm produce has
been introduced since the
founding of the State. Intensive
cultivation in fields and hot-
houses as well as revolutionary
developments in irrigation and
harvesting have made Israel a
world leader in agricultural
production Since 1948. the urea
of land under cultivation has
increased from 408.000 ucres to
1.076.000. while Israels farm
output has grown from *130
million to more than $600 million
in the 1980s.
The tourist industry earned
over $900 million in 1982. u year
in which more than u million
visitors came to Israel, attracted
by the country's geographical
diversity, urchuelogical and reli-
gious sites, and almost unlimited
sunshine. Al>out 60 percent of the
annual influx of tourists comes
from Europe and some 30 percent
from the United States.
In 1982. about 23.000 tourists
came from LtbMMM and Egypt,
in addition to the 100.000 from
Arab countries who huve visited
Israel annually via the Jordan
bridges since they were opened in
1968.
ISRAELIS READ quite
extensively; 3700 books are
published annually, us are more
than 700 newspupers und maga-
zines. Concert halls are found
throughout the country and the
DPT capita subscription to per-
formances by the Israel Fhilhar-
monic Orchestra is the highest in
the world. Dunce, drama and all
kinds of visual arts are created
and widely appreciated. Some 90
museums record more than 10
million visitors each year, while
2fi official outdoor sites and 180
national parks and nuture
reserves welcome about 6.5
million annually.
Aft it yoars of conflict in the
Middle East the State of Israel
and the Arab Republic of Egypt
concluded a Treaty of Peace in
1979. Israel hopes that the
general development of peaceful
and mutually fruitful relations
with its other Arab neighbors will
move forward.

Legislature considers measure to permit
Florida to invest in State of Israel bonds
Scott said
many
State Sen. Peter Weinstein of
Coral Springs, with co-sponsor-
ship of Fort Lauderdale Sen. Jim
Scott, introduced a bill to amend
state statutes and allow the
Florida State Board of Adminis-
tration to invest up to 25 percent
of its assets in Israeli bonds.
Florida law now forbids the in-
vestment of state assets in for-
eign governments.
The measure. Senate Bill 656.
passed the Senate's Finance.
Taxation and Claims Committee,
and according to Sen. Scott may
be taken up for consideration this
week in the full Senate.
The bill also has a companion
measure in the House of Repre-
sentatives where Rap. Peter
Deutsch of Sunrise has secured
17 co-sponsors including these
other Broward representatives:
Jack Tobin of Margate. Joe
Titone of Coral Springs. Tom
Armstrong of Plantation, Bill
Clark of Lauderdale Lakes,
Walter Young of Pembroke
Pines.
Weinstein said he had been as-
sured by the Development Corp.
of Israel "that whatever money is
invested (by Florida) will not be
used for military purposes. The
money will only be used for in-
dustrial development. The bill, if
passed, doesn't demand the
Florida retirement pension funds
be invested in Israeli bonds. It
merely clears the way for the
Board of Administration to
invest in Israeli bonds if it so
chooses."
The Israeli Development
Bonds are issued at different
denominations and terms with
interest varying from 4.5 percent
to 13 percent.

Study medicine in Israel
A challenge and
an opportunity.
Touro College and Technion- Israel Institute of Technology
announce a new program leading to an M.D. degree
A new door is open to an M.D. degree from
one-of the world's great teaching and research
centers. Starting in September 1983, the
Touro-Technton Program will offer qualified
college graduates a unique American-Israel
educational experience.
The program's 18-month American phase
provides advanced science and Hebrew
language studies at Touro College's beautiful
15-acre campus In the New York City suburb
of Huntington. Upon successful completion of
these courses, students wil receive a second
baccalaureate degree and may continue their
studies in Israel.
Israel phases of the program comprise 6
months of initial bridging courses, 2 years of
advanced clinical study at Technion s Faculty
of Medicine in Haifa, a thesis and a year of in-
ternship in Israel. An M.D. degree will be award-
ed by Technion to students who successfully
complete its program requirements.
Our goal is the development of skilled and
compassionate physicians who also will be
well-prepared to meet internship, residency
and licensing requirements in the United
States.

percent, that the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale sends to the national
UJA for distribution to the Jewish Agency in
Israel, the Joint Distribution Committee, and
HI AS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) and
others.
Meanwhile the Federation's Budget and Allocations
Committee has been meeting regularly this month to
study and review the budgets for 1983-84 of all
Federation committees, all local, national and in-
ternational agencies, in addition to UJA, requesting
allocations from campaign fund*.
To accomplish this tremendous task and to make the
important decisions of how much the various services,
programs, and agencies should receive, the Budget and
Allocations committee, headed by Jack Nudelman,
with John Streng, Charles Locke and Sen. Sam
Greenberg as co-chairmen, has a number of sub-
>uir..niiu-es aiding in the study, and making recom-
mendations to a steering committee which in turn seeks
ihe approval of the entire board of directors of Federa-
ion during final review of the requests and recom-
mendations.
The committee's steering committee, besides the
chairman and three co-chairmen, includes Sheldon
i'olish. Brian Sherr. and Ethel Waldman.
Sen. Greenberg heads the sub-committee considering
i he needs of Federation programs and the campaign.
Included on this committee are Federation President
Jean Shapiro. Victor Gruman, Irving Libowsky, Locke,
Polish, Sherr, Waldman, Felice Sincoff.
Studying the needs of local agencies, such as the
Jewish Family Service, the Hebrew Day School, the
Jewish Community Center of Greater Fort Lauderdale,
is the sub-committee headed by Locke and aided by
Jacob Brodzki. Gladys Daren. Seymour Gerson. Victor
Gruman. Alan Levy, Libowsky, Ralph Madway,
Samuei K. Miller. Joel Reinstein, Israel Resnikoff.
Brian Sherr, Mark Steingard, Frank Strassburger.

presidents taking part in the deliberations. The others
are Victor Gruman and Jacob Brodzki.
How funds are allocated
13% Cost of Fundraising
Near the close of the lyfg campaign, last year's
budget and allocations committee recommended to the
Federations board approval of almost 13 percent for
administration and fund raising, leaving more than 87
cents ol every dollar jrtfedged in the 1982 campaign to be

distributed 85 percent of that total to the Jewish
Agency in Israel, 12 percent to the Joint Distribution
Committee, and 3 percent to HI AS.
Jewish Agency
The Jewish Agency in Israel, in addition to getting
support from UJA, also is aided by United Israel
Appeal, the worldwide fund-raiser through Keren
Hayesod. because of the myriad social services that
need the support of world Jewry since so much of the
Israel government's budget is spent for defense and
repayment of the loans it has received from the U.S.
and other sources.
Here are a few of the projects supported by the
Jewish Agency:
Project Renewal, which also gets government funds
in cooperation with specially-contributed commitments
from communities "twinned" or "partnered" with
renewal developments in depressed neighborhoods in
various cities, such as Fort Lauderdale's partnership
with the Israeli town of Kfar Saba. (Fort Lauderdale's
Federation is committed to providing SI.3 million
solely in Project Renewal funds to this partnership.
These funds, payable over a five-year period, are
separate and above individual contributions to the
regular UJA campaign. To date, $525,000 has been
pledged by Greater Fort Lauderdale area residents.)
Absorption Centers: providing living quarters and
Hebrew language training for six months for new
immigrants.
New towns in Israel proper: creating Negev com-
munities to accommodate the thousands of Jews
displaced when Israel gave up the Sinai in accord with
the Camp David peace agreement with Egypt: and
creating new communities in the Upper Galilee area for
new immigrants.
Kibbutzim: new and struggling Kibbutzim in the
Negev and throughout the North are subsidized until
they become self-sufficient. Organized by young and
dedicated pioneers in their early twenties, they depend
on us.
Day Care Centers: most Israeli families have both
parents working. Without these day care centers, the
economic stability of the family would be destroyed.
Youth Alivah Villages: for the orphans and children
of under-privileged families. These villages provide
Jewish youth with a wholesome environment.
Inner-City Redevelopment: 10 percent of Israeli
families live in abject poverty. The Jewish Agency has
programs working in specific neighborhoods to provide
better housing and direct social services.
Our donations are woven into the fabric of the Israeli
society and economy through the Jewish Agency. We
cannot let the ties of Jewish responsibility tear asunder.
Our 1983 pledge is needed now.
Joint Distribution Committee
JDC provides help to needy Jews in 42 countries,
including Israel.
A hot meal school program for Jewish youth in
Calcutta. An old age home for the remnants of Jews in
Rumania. A Jewish youth center in Algiers. A health
clinic in Bulgaria. A food kitchen in Warsaw. Wherever
you travel, wherever a Jew is found, the JDC is there
helping Jews in Need.
JDC provides health services, aging services,
education and relief services.
JDC is particularly proud of the over $4 million
dollars channeled into ORT schools worldwide and in
Israel, and of the network of Malben homes for the aged
throughout Israel.
Joint Distribution Committee is not someone "out
there." It is us. Without our contributions to the
Jewish Federation and to the 200 other Federations in
the United States, the JDC would not exist.
HIAS
When our fathers and grandfathers reached Cattle
Gardens and Ellis Island, they were not alone. The
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) was there to
help them. Our fellow Jews who were fortunate enough
to flee the Nazi death camps were helped by HIAS in
their first years in this country.
This great organization continues its was* with the
help of Federation-UJA donations.

Proud U.S. establishing Holocaust Memorial
\Rabbi Jeffrey Ballon of Temple
manu-El, as president of the
kith Broward Board of Rabbis,
lued the following statement on
kril Uin regard to the Warsaw
wtto Uprising and Holocaust
nmemoration:
'As a community we
ric note of the 40th an-
versary of the Warsaw
Arising. We acknowledged
[e heroism of the re-
stance and have become
oud that the United
ates is the first Western
[untry to establish a me-
jrial to the Holocaust.

"With the awareness that peo-
of good will and enlightened
nscience care, we no longer

depressing sorrow of the
Bt; we can instead celebrate the
Dry of compassion and jus-
"I was able to consecrate this
thrust toward righteousness on
my recent trip to Israel on behalf
of the Jewish National Fund
when I stood at the entrance to
the Holocaust Memorial in Israel,
the Yad V'Shem. Located in front
of the emotionally provocative
gates designed by the late artist,
David Palumbo, is my family's
reminder of the brightness and
possibility of redemption:
plaque dedicated to Righteous
. pen tiles.
"I use the phrase, 'family
jWninder,' with some pride be-
cause of my personal involve-
ment in this testimonial to the
actions of those from the Holo-
caust. The specialness comes
with the recognition that there
were many who risked their lives
and their fortunes to help those
who were imperilled by the
menace of evil Their names were
set in mosaic patterns on a path-
way called "The Avenue of the
Righteous."
"And that brings me to the
second special part of the exper-
ience which is worthy of mention.
These inscriptions are photo-
graphed and remembered by the
thousands of people who visit
this testimonial art. I knew that
one of the artisans who worked
on fashioning the main mosaic
and several of the name plates for
the Palumbo studios was my
verv own mother. She had joined
with the Palumbo studios as part
of a sabbatical she spent in Israel
while she studied art and was
allowed to perform the mitzvah of
recognizing the Righteous
Gentiles by means of these ar-
tistic tributes.
n
"There are no markers in-
dicating who created the plaques
or even the gates. That would not
be consistent with the philosophy
of the artists of the site. There
should be only those who can
continue to relate the story, who
can continue to share the
memory, who can pass on the
importance of experience and of
hope to all who will listen.

Jewish converts rise sharply, total 100,000
Although Judaism has tradi-
tionally avoided proselytizing,
there are now an estimated
100,000 "Jews by choice" in the
United States, most of whom
have entered the faith through
marriage to a Jew. Moreover, the
rate of conversion into Judaism
has increased by 300 per cent in

In Zakhor, Yerushalmi con
fronts the ri-ader with an ap-

daism throughout the ages was
ahaorbad with the meaning of
history, historiography played at
best, a subordinate role among
I hi- Jews and often no role at all.
' otuomitunlly, while memory of
the past was always a central
component of Jewish experience,
the historian was not its primary

These unexpected additions to
the American Jewish flock have
more than compensated for mem-
bership losses due to "mixed
marriages" in which the Jewish
spouse affiliates with the
religious group of the Gentile
partner.
"The rate of conversion has not
only gone hand-in-hand with in-
creases in intermarriage, but has,
in fact, surpassed them" Dr.
Egon Mayer, a Brooklyn College
sociologist, told the annual meet-
ing of the Conservative Jewish
Rabbinical Assembly in Dallas.
Mayer predicted that the im-
pact of the new converts, who
typically exude religious zeal and
vitality, "could very likely set in
motion a gradual reversal of a
century of secularization and
religious decline among Jews in
America."
Mayer's report said that wom-
en converts to Judaism outnum-
bered their male counterparts by
a ratio of 10 to 1. and it asserted
that "Jews by choice tend to be

Nissim is relaxed, surrounded
by his family of four children and
the two teenagers from problem
families they are adopting. "No, I
don't think I was really changed
by the war. I'm the same."
He laughs when Eti says, "But
you have changed." She explains.
"His family means even more to
him now. I feel we're all more
deeply in his heart. I feel life
means more to him now."
Life also means a great deal
more to 20-year-old Yoram Benita
who is happily and healthily back
at work in the apple orchards.
Four months ago he wondered if
he'd ever see those orchards
again.
One of the first soldiers to enter
the PLO-infested refugee camp of
Rashidiya, outside of Tyre,
Yoram was shot in the shoulder
by a boy no more than 14 years
old during house-to-house com-
bat. "I saw him and then I was
bit. Naturally, by instinct, I shot
back, but I don't know what hap
pened to him. We were all
shocked seeing kids like that
ready to fire their Bazookas at us.
It was something we never
imagined or could have expected.
Who would think of anyone using
kids that way?"
After dragging himself to
safety, he was jolted by bullets
hitting the ground around his
legs while he waa attempting to
apply first aid to his arm.
Having no other option, he en-
tered a building and suprised two
terrorists. Fortunately, he was
able to hold them off until two of
his fellow soldiers arrived. He
was flown immediately to Ram-
bam Hospital in Haifa.
Yoram pauses. He is having
difficulty recounting the agony of
those days. Unlike Nissim, it was
his first actual experience in
battle, his first confrontation
with the horrors of war. It waa
filled with all the tension of hav-
ing to make split-second deci-
sions that trembled between life
and death: especially how to
avoid harming civilians.
"I know it waa on everyone's
minds. None of us wanted to be
responsible for hurting innocent
women and children."
Now that it's finished, Yoram
is pursuing his previously-made
plans: a year off "to ase the
world," and then back home, "a
safe home," he emphasizes. Yea,
he reflects, his attitude towards
life has changed.
"I guess I want to live more
I realize how abort life can be. It's
like a little space, and I want to
enjoy experiencing every bit of
it."

WIESEL: A NUCLEAR CATASTROPHE CAN
BE AVOIDED IF THE LESSON OF THE
HOLOCAUST IS HEARD AND UNDERSTOOD
WASHINGTON (JTA) Elie Wiesel, the writer and
chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, declared that
if the world avoids "a nuclear catastrophe" it is because it has
"heard'' what the survivors of the Holocaust have to tell it.
But Wiesel, who noted that on April 11, 1945, he was one of
the survivors liberated at Dachau by the U.S. Army, said that
for many years after 1945, "the survivors were like outcasts"
and "our story was not being heard."
"The uniquely Jewish event (in which six million Jews were
murdered) has universal application," Wiesel said in a luncheon
address at the National Press Club. "It is because the world
didn't care that Jews were killed that now other people are being
massacred and the world doesn't care." He said he went to Cam-
bodia after he learned about the massacres there to see the vic-
tims at first hand because "when I needed people nobody came."
NEW YORK "Jewish Sites
in Lebanon: Summer. 1982,"
with photos by Micha Bar-Am, is
a new photographic exhibition
prepared by Beth Hate-
futsoththe Nahum Goldmann
Museum of the Jewish Diaspora
in Tel Avivand soon to be sent
on a tour throughout North
America by the JWB Lecture
Bureau.
Five places in LebanonBei-
rut, Byhamdoun, Aley, Dayr Al-
Qamar and Haabayyaare the
locations of the Jewish sites
photographed during the war in
the summer of 1962 by Micha
Bar-Am.
The photo-documentation mis-
sion in Lebanon waa not the first
one given to Bar-Am by Beth
Hatefuteoth.
"The task waa more compli-
cated thia time," Bar-Am says.
"The documentation was done
while a war waa in progress, to-
gether with my journalistic
assignments, and under the pres-
sure resulting from war-time cir-
cumstances."
In a letter to JWB, Ronit
Rabinowitz, a spokesperson for
Beth Hatefutsoth, pointed out
that "Jews have been living in
Lebanon since ancient times:
they were mainly farmers. In the
1860s, when Lebanon became a
semi-independent state, there
were Jewish communities in
Tripoli, Beirut and Sidon, as well
as in rural areas such aa Dayr Al-
Qamar and Aley in the Shouf
mountains.
"Most of the Jews in the vil-
lages left for Beirut when inter-
communal fighting broke out.
The only remaining Jewish com-
munity in the interior was
Hasbayya, on the slopes of
Mount Lebanon. At the end of
the century they left for Eretz Is-
rael.
"As modern Lebanon de-
veloped," Rabinowitz added,
"Jewish newcomers arrived from

Greece, Turkey, Iraq and Syria.
They played an important role in
commerce. Aa a result of political
events and nationalist Arab pres-
sures, however, the Jewish
population dwindled since the
1960s; the Six-Day War in 1967
hastened the emigration. By the
summer of 1982, only a few dozen
Jews remained: some of them
have left since the fighting en-
ded."
Bar-Am, a photographer-cor-
respondent for The New York
Times in Israel and other coun-
tries in the Middle East, also shot
the photographs in Jews in

and
eryone cares if even one
[goes to the army. Anything
ft happens here to one, hap
Howard M. Squadron, presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Congress, has issued the follow-
ing statement on Jordan's an-
nouncement that it will not enter
peace negotiations with Israel:
King Hussein's decision not to
enter peace negotiations with Is-
rael hardly comes as a surprise.
By tying the participation in the
peace process to PLO approval,
Hussein virtually doomed the ad-
ministration's efforts from the
outset. ... i
As is evident in the formal
statement issued by the Jor-
danian government, the tentative
agreement the King had reached
with Yasser Arafat envisaged the
utilization of the Reagan
proposals merely as a "vehicle"
for advancing the Fez plan, which
is but one more Arab blueprint
for Israel's destruction. Yet even
this agreement was rejected by
the PLO leadership as too con-
ciliatory toward Israel, and may
well have been a factor in the as-
sassination of Dr. Usam Sartwai
as a warning to Arafat
President Reagan's comment
that "radical elements" within
the PLO prevented Hussein's
participation is incorrect The
fact is that the Central Commit-
tee FATAH, widely advertiaed as
constituting a "moderate force
within the PLO. rejected the pro-
posed agreement with King Hus-
sein.
These events demonstrate once
again that there is no alternative
to the autonomy proceaa agreed
to at Camp David. It is high time
for the Arab world and our own
Evernment to face up to that
*. Continued frantic search for
substitute formulas and pro-
cedures inevitably will underaane
Camp David and forecloee all
hope for the achievement of Ha
goals.
