Declaration
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
dismissed with scorn Yasir
Arafat's proclamation of an
independent Palestinian state
at the Palestine National
Council meeting in Algiers.
Swift and strong reaction to
the declaration crossed party
lines. Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir of Likud called the
Algiers declaration just
another stage "in the terrorist
war against the existence of
Israel and its independence"
being waged by the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres head of the Labor Party,
said it was just another PLO
effort to avoid the need for
clear, decisive decisions.
Although the PNC delegates
accepted UN Security Council
Resolution 242 which implic-
itly recognizes Israel, it was
done with "crooked additions"
which cannot be ignored,
Peres, said.
An official statement by the
Foreign Ministry said the PLO
has shown again it cannot or
will not accept reality.
The statement dismissed the
reference to Resolution 242 as
"double talk aimed at obscur-
ing the PLO's continued
resource to violence, terrorism
and extremism."
Foreign Ministry spokesman
Alon Liel called the declara-
tion a unilateral step that was
no substitute for negotiations.
"We say in our statement
that we believe that the deci-
sions of the PNC are not con-
tributing to peace in the area,"
he said.
Liel acknowledged that the
reference to 242 was "one new
thing," but "the way they
mention it, with conditions, is
not considered by us a recogni-
tion of Israel," he said.

Shamir Gets Nod To Form New Government
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
President Chaim Herzog for-
mally called on Premier Yitz-
hak Shamir to form a new
government.
At the same time, he made
clear to the Likud leader his
preference for a broadly based
regime that would unite the
country and avert the aliena-
tion of overseas Jewry.
Shamir seems most likely
instead to form a narrow coali-
tion led by Likud, with the
support of the ultra-Orthodox
and right-wing parties.
He got the nod from Herzog,
a full two weeks after Election
Day, only after the two largest
religious parties, Shas and
Agudat Yisrael. decided to
align with Likud rather than
Labor.
Their combined 11 Knesset
seats will allow Shamir to form
a working majority in the
Knesset. The two other religi-
ous parties are expected to fall
in line.
Herzog, whose office as chief
of state is non-political and
non-partisan, made his prefer-
ences known by stressing to
Shamir the mounting public
pressure for a unity govern-
ment.
He noted widespread con-
cern among Israelis and Jews
abroad over the future Zionist
nature of the state and the
fragility of Jewish unity. And
he offered a withering criti-
cism of Israel's present elec-
tion system, which endows
minority parties with dispro-
portionate political power.
Shamir was equally careful
in crafting his response to the
president. He said he would
approach "all parties who
agree to serve in a Likud-led
government" to join him
"according to such terms as
we all agree to."
The premier said he was
"always a devotee of wide gov-
ernment what was called
four years ago a unity govern-
ment," a reference to the
Likud-Labor partnership
established in 1984.
This remains the correct for-
mula today, Shamir said, "and
we will try to persuade all the
parties involved so that we can
set one up this time, too."
A new Labor-Likud coali-
tion, however, seems hardly
likely at the moment. Labor
Party Secretary-General Uzi
Baram is less than enthusiastic
over the idea. He acknowl-
edged that certain broad cir-
cles in Labor seem amenable,
provided Likud approaches
them on the basis of parity.
Baram conceded, however,
that Labor is in no position to
demand a rotation of the office
of prime minister, such as
occurred in the outgoing unity
government.
Labor won three more Knes-
set seats than Likud in 1984.
The reverse occurred in the
1988 elections, with Likud
winning 40 to Labor's 39.
Shamir told Herzog he was
"aware of the concern and
fears, especially among U.S.
Jewry" concerning "legisla-
tion whirh is part of the pre-
sent discussions."
This was a reference to the
demands of the ultra-Orthodox
parties that the next govern-
ment guarantee swift passage
of an amendment to the Law
of Return that would redefine
who is considered a Jew in
Israel.
The amendment would not
grant automatic citizenship to
those converted to Judaism by
non-Orthodox rabbis. The
change is fiercely opposed by
Conservative and Reform
Jews, who constitute the vast
majority of affiliated Jews in
the United States and other
Diaspora countries.
Shamir said the outgoing
government had sought a solu-
tion to this issue "that would
prevent division and discord
. and we will continue to
pursue this search."
He called on all sides "to
show goodwill" and work
together on "solutions that
will facilitate the unity of the
Jewish people."
But Shamir already has
promised the religious parties
that the "Who Is a Jew"
amendment will be passed
within weeks of the new gov-
ernment taking office.
Herzog called Israel's pre-
sent electoral system an ano-
maly not attuned to the final
years of the 20th century.
He called for "a searching
re-examination" of the rele-
vant laws. But he stopped
short of urging a change from
proportional representation to
constituency elections. Nor did
he call on Labor and Likud to
form a unity government for
the sole purpose of enacting
electoral reforms.

Question
Actions of
Arab Reporter
For Israeli TV
JERUSALEM (INB) Staf-
fers at government-owned
Israel Television are embroiled
in a dispute over the contro-
versial behavior of one of their
Arab reporters.
At the center of the dispute
is Rafik Haj Yiyeh, a reporter
for Israel TV's Arabic-
language news program.
Although Yiyeh is the educa-
tional affairs reporter, he has
in recent months frequently
covered stories involving the
Arab riots.
But when he was recently
assigned to cover a story about
the throwing of firebombs in
his hometown of Taibeh, Yiyeh
refused. Youssef Ismail, the
editor of the Arabic-language
news, turned to Yosef Bania,
head of the Israel TV news
department, who called Yiyeh
to insist that he cover the
story. Yiyeh still refused.
Bania and his staff then
approached two Jerusalem-
based television reporters, Eli
Nisan and Albert Bahar, and
asked them to substitute for
Yiyeh. They declined.
Finally Miriam Kirshen-
baum, Israel TV's arts and
entertainment reporter, was
sent to cover the Taibeh story.
Ismail and other editors at
the Arabic-language news divi-
sion were furious over the inci-
dent and demanded that Yiyeh
be dismissed. Bania, however,
said he accepted Yiyeh's expla-
nation that he feared his life
would be in danger if he cov-
ered the story.
But sources at Israel TV told
the weekly magazine Meurav
Yerushalmi that the real rea-
son Yiyeh declined to cover the
story is that he intends to run
for the Taibeh City Council
and did not want to be part of a
story that might make Taibeh
look bad.

Defense Secretary Frank Car-
lucci made it clear at the end of
his three-day visit to Israel
that the United States intends
to continue weapons sales to
"moderate" Arab countries.
"It's important for peace
that the United States main-
tain relations with moderate
Arab countries" and those
relations involve security
issues, which means arms
sales, the American defense
chief told reporters at Ben-
Gurion Airport.
He stressed at the same time
that United States support of
Israel and binational military
cooperation signals to Israel's
adversaries "that there is no
military option ... peace must
be achieved through negotia-
tions."

Viewpoint
Galvanizing
A New Government
With the victory of the Republican presiden-
tial ticket, it is now appropriate to put aside
the incredibly nasty invective of the 18 months
past. It is in the nation's best interest to cast
aside the accusatory postures and, instead,
pull together in a common effort to create an
environment to enhance the common good.
It is to be hoped, most earnestfully, that the
experience of the campaign will not be dupli-
cated when President-elect George Bush
selects only the best for his cabinet. Let not
sloppy investigations and patronage dictate
who will oversee this nation's various sectors.
Each secretary should be free of taint and free
from prejudicial leanings.
By surrounding himself with men and
women of the highest intellectual caliber and
moral fiber, George Bush will do much to
ensure that his government will be sleaze-free
and ethnically-unbiased.
Limiting Soviet Immigration
In the midst of all that is political, a news
report on the most humanitarian struggle is
easily buried.
In recent days, a not-so-subtle message was
uttered by the assistant secretary of state for
human rights and humanitarian affairs.
Richard Schifter, in the curious forum
provided at the celebration honoring Morris
Abram, outgoing chair of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, suggested that
in some not-so-distant-future the United
States might be unable to accommodate all
those Soviet Jews who might wish to make
their home here.
The threat took on greater moment when
Schifter said that with another refuge Israel
the U.S. could more easily pull back on its
traditional role of welcoming immigrants.
There was, this summer, a portent of things
to come when the Congress needed to
appropriate special funding in order to
continue issuing entry visas to those already
approved for emigration from the Soviet
Union.
When Schifter, described as the
"Administration's top human rights
specialist," starts warning away Soviet Jews,
then the United States best look carefully at
commitment to the rights of all men.

TV's Religious Blackout
By RABBI MARC H. TANENBAUM
The recent decisions of
major television networks to
curtail or end completely their
religious programs is, I
believe, a serious mistake that
should be reconsidered.
I say that as one who has
worked closely with the net-
works over decades, and who
has had little patience with
mindless media-Dashing.
What is at stake in restoring
mainstream religious pro-
gramming is the future charac-
ter of America's pluralistic
society.
My experience over three
decades persuades me that
ABC, CBS and NBC, among
other media, made major con-
tributions to promoting religi-
ous and racial harmony
through their weekly religious
television programs.
Thoughtful discussions and
documentaries on key moral
issues involving leading Chris-
tian and Jewish spokespersons
provided strong images to the
nation of mutual respect and
cooperation.
Today, many local affiliates
should not be capitulating to
preachers of parochialism just
because they can buy expen-
sive air time. All of us, includ-
ing the media, have a critical
stake in strengthening the
message of mainstream
groups who advance religious
coexistence and respect, the
keystone of a pluralistic
democracy.
Utters To The Editor
Edward Blonder's Return to Poland
EDITOR:
I, Edward Blonder, a survi-
vor of the Auschwitz concen-
tration camp, was asked to
accompany Rabbi Emily Kor-
zenik, Eric Strom, a bar mitz-
vah boy, and his family to
Krakow, Poland. I accepted
without hesitation, but with a
mixture of pain and joy. Why
the pain? For the longest time
I have wanted my children to
visit my hometown of Jaslo,
Poland, and the camp Aus-
chwitz. In some way, I felt
their being there would help to
eliminate some of the guilt
that has been with me since my
liberation.
Our trip began in Warsaw.
When we visited the Pawiak
prison, which was inside the
ghetto, I knew I stood before a
place where thousands of my
fellow Jews were executed.
Later, seeing Plaszow, a camp
near Krakow where I spent
eight months, my hometown
where I spent the first 19
years of my life, Auschwitz
where I spent close to two
years I remember feeling
amazement that I had survived
all of this. How did I, along
with only two others from
Jaslo, survive out of 3,000
Jewish families from my town?
It was a joy to accompany
the group. A personal high-
light for me was leading the
services and reading the Torah
on Shabbat. This was some-
thing I will always be grateful
to Rabbi Korzenik for, as she
allowed me to accomplish
something I never believed
possible. The controversy that
occurred meant little to the
Jews themselves most had
intermarried and cared little
about who the rabbi was. They
were thrilled with the idea of
the bar mitzvah many had to
be reminded to put on yar-
mulkes. There were no chuma-
shim or siddurim or tallisim in
the synagogue. The rabbis who
were so concerned about the
female rabbi should concern
themselves more with the abs-
ence of these symbols of Jew-
ish life.
We all went to Poland to
celebrate Eric Strom's bar
mitzvah. We brought joy to the
elderly Jews and hopefully
awakened some possibility for
the future of Judaism in
Poland with the younger peo-
ple we met. We were all asked
to return with another simcha
soon, and we know we were all
enriched by our connection
with one another.

While Jenninger's apologists explained
that the intent was, perhaps, misunder-

those who would reiterate calumny, slan-

There can never be justification or quali-

Going to America
By DAVID KANTOR
MOSCOW (JTA) Two longtime refuseniks offered
different reasons why the majority of Jews leaving the
Soviet Union prefer to go to the United States rather than
to Israel.
According to Yuri Cherniak, who heads a scientific
seminar for refuseniks, Soviet Jews fear moving to an "all
Jewish society."
But Yuli Kosharovsky, who first applied for an exit visa
17 years ago, believes it is simply because America offers a
more comfortable life.
The neshira or dropout rate the number of Jews
emigrating on Israeli visas who end up settling in other
countries is running at about 90 percent.
In an attempt to curb the problem, the Israeli govern-
ment decided last summer to deny visas to Soviet Jews who
are not committed to settling in Israel. But the policy has
not been implemented yet.
According to Cherniak, Jews born and brought up in the
Soviet Union are wary of settling in Israel, because they
"can hardly absorb the idea of living in surroundings which
are different from what they have experienced here.
"So they prefer to move to the United States, which
seems to be, overall, more consistent with their previous
experiences in a non-Jewish dominated society," Cherniak
said.

Likud Knesset member-elect,
called Arafat's statement "a
mere public relations gimmick
devoid of value."
According to Minister of
Commerce and Industry Ariel
Sharon, a Likud hard-liner
who may be Israel's next
defense minister, the PNC
declaration was a very danger-
ous development against
which he had warned for a long
time.
The only Israeli politicians
without totally negative reac-
tions were Arien Eliay of
Labor's new Knesset factions
and Yossi Sarid of the Citizens
Rights Movement.
Both thought the PNC's
"carefully worded statement"
was worthy of consideration.
Hanna Siniora, a prominent
Palestinian journalist who
edits the East Jerusalem Ara-
bic daily Al-Fajr, called Ara-
fat's announcement proof of
the PLO's readiness to recog-
nize Israel.
"It is recognition and a
triumph for the voice of mod-
eration in the Palestinian
camp. It sees reality. It under-
stands the existence of the
state of Israel and it wants to
make peace with it," Siniora
told Israel Radio.
Recognition of the new
Palestinian state was immedi-
ately forthcoming, first from
Algiers and then followed
within hours by Malaysia, Sin-
gapore, North and South
Yemen, Kuwait, Tunisia, Iraq.
Madagascar, Jordan and Saudi
Arabia.
A declaration of Palestinian
statehood in Algiers was anti-
cipated, so it was no surprise
when Arafat mounted the
podium and proclaimed:
"The Palestine National
Council announces in the name
of God, in the name of the
people, of the Arab Palestinian
people, the establishment of
the state of Palestine in our
Palestinian nation, with holy
Jerusalem as its capital."
He did not indicate the
boundaries of such a state but
referred to the UN General
Assembly resolution Nov. 29,
1947, which called for the par-
tition of Palestine into separ-
ate Jewish and Arab states.
Earlier the PNC endorsed
Resolution 242 by a vote of
253-46, with 10 abstentions.
That resolution was adopted
by the Security Council in 1967
as the basis for Arab-Israeli
negotiations.
A special Haggadah created by artist Yaakov Agam was presented as a farewell gift to
President Ronald Reagan from a delegation of Russian emigres led by Natan Sharansky and
Prof Herman Branover. At the presentation were, from left, Iosif Begun; A. Azarak;
Yitzchok Kogan; Sharansky; Agam; Pres. Reagan; Morris Abram, ckairman of tke
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations; Branover (partially
hidden), co-chairman of SHAMIR, an organization which helps Russian immigrant
scientists in Israel; Menachem Lubinsky, and Marvin Ashendorf. Participating in the
ceremonies but not in the picture were industrialist/philanthropist Joseph Wassner; Moise
(Hrichman and Joseph Miller, co-chairman of SHAMIR.

The Root Cause of Terrorism
By BERNARD SAFER
An Israeli bus is set on fire
in the administered West
Bank, killing a mother and her
three children and wounding
many others. It's only the lat-
est incident of rebellious ter-
rorism this year, a year in
which more than 300 people
most of them innocent, apoliti-
cal, non-military have
already been murdered not
only in the intifada but also in
such places as Greece,
Lebanon, India and Sudan.
What possesses these perpe-
trators to resort to such hei-
nous acts?
runs through all these explana-
tions is learning. Terrorist
beliefs, justifications, and tac-
tics are learned in much the
same way as are language,
morals, and the routine activi-
ties of daily living. Learned
informally at home, in school,
church, temple or mosque, in
the playground and on the
street. Learned formally in
special training camps, which
in some cases, are state-
sponsored. Acquired through
conditioning, imitation, trial-
and-error, and indoctrination
by parents, peers, and teach-
ers. There's nothing special,
arcane or evil about this pro-
Modern terrorism is not a
helter-skelter operation con-
ducted by amateurs. It's
usually a highly professional
enterprise for which a lot of
formal training is systemati-
cally provided. (An exception
is the intifada, which may be
spontaneous rather than sys-
tematically controlled by the
PLO.) Lybia, South Yemen,
Iran, PLO, and until the last
few years, Syria, have all been
The doctrines of
terror knmv no

Terrorist beliefs, justifications, and
tactics are learned in much the same way
as are language, morals, and the routine
activities of daily living.
Just about anything and
everything: revenge or redress
for some alleged personal
injury; publicity or public sym-
pathy for a messianic goal; just
cause or deeply held ideal;
back-door entrance into the
governance or some similar
ploy for gaining political effi-
cacy; release of a relative or
comrade from government
prison; to rid society of some
rationalized injustice, inequity
or similar oppression; to gen-
erate fear, chaos and anarchy
in the hated 'Establishment;'
to promote the dignity of a
religion, culture or countercul-
ture.
The trouble with these
explanations, taken individu-
ally, is that they mistakenly
view terrorism as inevitable.
Also, they tend to ignore its
complexity, failing to acknowl-
edge the diverse strands of
distinctive personal motiva-
tions, religious or ethnic men-
talities, and geopolitical aspir-
ations of the perpetrators.
They are too simplistic. They
don't address the basic issue of
root cause, the thing that is
really behind such acts. And
most important, they don't
answer the crucial question of
why the vast majority of
oppressed and aggrieved peo-
ple of this world do not resort
to the outrageous violence,
savage intimidation or no-
holds-barred "holy war" that
is deliberately and randomly
directed against often inno-
cent civilians those uncon-
scionable acts that define ter-
rorism.

A Wake-Up Call For
American Jews....
Court Backs Husseini's Detention
JERUSALEM (JTA) The imprisonment without trial
of Palestinian activist Faisal Husseini was approved by a
Jerusalem district court judge. Husseini, jailed three
months ago, is serving his fourth term under administra-
tive detention.
By JEREMIAH UNTERMAN
Dr. Jeremiah Unterman is associate
professor and director of Jewish Stud-
ies at Barry University. He is the
author of the just-released "From
Repentance to Redemption."
Aside from the extremely
important ramifications of the
Israeli elections concerning
Middle East peace, the results
have hammered home a wake-
up call on the doors of Ameri-
can Jews.
It seems certain that Yitz-
hak Shamir's hard-line Likud
party and right-wing allies will
successfully form a coalition
government with the Ortho-
dox Jewish parties. The Ortho-
dox have won 18 Knesset
seats. The number of seats is
statistically significant, for it
is precisely equivalent to the
15 percent of Israel's popula-
tion which is Orthodox. In
other words, the Orthodox not
only voted en masse, but there
were no crossover votes to
non-religious parties. The
Orthodox took full advantage
of the democratic process. As
was their legal and moral
right, they eschewed the secu-
lar parties and voted only for
t heir own agenda. Their gain is
extraordinary as a bloc they
will represent nearly one-third
of the new coalition govern-
ment. In effect, they have
attained a degree of power
which, once experienced, likely
will never be voluntarily relin-
quished. In this, they are
hardly unique.
The Orthodox agreement
with Likud will be as follows:
a) the religious will allow the
political right to handle the

Palestinians and the intifada
(uprising) any way they want;
b) the Likud will permit the
Orthodox to accomplish their
immediate theocratic goals.
The main goal of Israeli
Orthodoxy which affects
American Jews concerns the
"Who is a Jew?" issue. The
Orthodox will demand that the
new coalition create a law that
defines a Jew only as a person
born of a Jewish mother or
converted to Judaism through
halacha (Jewish Law) as
handed down under Orthodox
jurisdiction. Among other
things, this means that only
the Orthodox definition of
Jewish identity will have valid-
ity in the State of Israel. So,
anybody who will wish to re-
ceive benefits from the state as
a Jewish citizen of Israel will
greatly of their money, time,
and energy in political and
social action on behalf of
Israel? Don't they make trips
to Israel every year in the
hundreds of thousands,
thereby pouring tens of mil-
lions of dollars more into the
desperate Israeli economy?
And is this the thanks they
get? The answer to most of
these questions is "yes," but
not to all.
American Jews must force
themselves to face up to two
salient facts:
American Jews are not
Zionists. Many American Jews
care passionately about Israel
and give unstintingly of what-
ever they have to Israel, but
that doesn't make them Zion-
ists. The 19th and 20th cen-
tury founders of the various
Zionist ideologies and their
successor-leaders of the State
of Israel, and all had one over-
riding definition of a Zionist.
To them all (Herzl, Ben-

have to pass Orthodox inspec-
tion. In one fell swoop, three-
quarters of American Jewry
(the non-Orthodox) will be dis-
enfranchised. No Reform or
Conservative rabbinic conver-
sions, marriages, or divorces
will be valid in rabbinic courts
in Israel.
Predictably, American Jews
are reacting already with cries
of outrage. Their anger is just-
ified. After all, aren't they also

Gurion, and Golda Meir in-
cluded), a Zionist is a Jew who
has already permanently set-
tled in the Land of Israel or
who is in the process of doing
so. Period. If in recent times
one or two Israeli leaders have
called American Jews "Zion-
ists," it is only for the cynical
purpose of extracting political
ana monetary support. Simi-
larly, universities give degrees
to people of wealth or power.

A Wake-Up Call
The difference is that these
degrees are specifically enti-
tled "honorary." Flattery
works, of course. However, for
American Jews to appropriate
the label "Zionists" for them-
selves is dishonest. You can't
be a Zionist and willfully live in
America. At the best Ameri-
can Jews are "honorary Zion-
ists."
The truth is that less than
one percent (about 50,000) of
American Jews (approxi-
mately six million) have made
aliyah to Israel. In 1987 some
2,000 American Jews made
aliyah (of which at least half
were Orthodox). Hardly an
overwhelming indication of
commitment.
American Jews have no one
to blame for their disenfran-
chisement but themselves. One
can hardly blame the Orthodox
Israelis for working with the
democratic process. Indeed,
these elections once again
prove that Israel is a democ-
racy, perhaps the most demo-
cratic democracy there is (just
as Israel's kibbutzim represent
the most communistic com-
munism, except for those who
have prostituted themselves
for cheap Palestinian labor).
The fifteen parties partici-
pating in the new Knesset
range all over the spectrum
from communistic to radical
right, secular to ultra-
rehgious, Arab and Israeli. By
contrast, Washington's unifor-
mity is colorless (one only has
to consider the morally and
intellectually insulting nature
of the recent presidential
campaign).
The reality is that American
Jews opted out of Israeli
democracy by not immigrating
there. Had ten percent across
the board of American Jewry's
six million made aliyah, nay
even five percent, the Ortho-
dox would not have attained
enough influence to dictate
Israeli policy. More than that,
Likud, with disdain of Pales-
tinian civil rights, would never
ADL On Skinheads
Los Angeles, CA Growing
numbers of young neo-Nazi
Skinheads are linking up with
long-established hate groups,
such as the Ku Klux Klan,
neo-Nazis and other white
supremacist organizations,
according to a report made
public by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The ADL report said the
main white supremacist group
reaching out to Skinheads is
the California-based White
Aryan Resistance (WAR),
headed by Tom Metzger, for-
mer Grand Dragon of the Cali-
fornia KKK.
It further revealed that the
shaven-headed youths, who
wear Nazi insignia and engage
in violence against blacks,
Hispanics, Jews, Asians and
homosexuals, have taken part
in virtually every recent
important hate movement
rally, march and conference in
the nation. In the past six
months, the number of states
in which Skinhead activity has
been reported has grown from
12 to 21; membership nation-
wide has grown to an esti-
mated 2,000 from a total of
1,000 to 1,500 shown in a
previous ADL study last Feb-
ruary.
Where persecution as a motive for immigration

have come to power. Why
didn't American Jews immi-
grate in greater numbers?
There are many reasons: the
good life of American democ-
racy, the desire to stay close to
family and friends, the fear of
losing a child in a war with the
Arabs. For vast numbers the
answer is simple: materialism.
Life is physically more com-
fortable in the United States.
Where persecution as a motive
for immigration did not exist,
idealism did not suffice. Zion-
ism could not compete with the
"fleshpots" of America. Israel,
for American Jews (and for
yordim, Israeli emigrants), is a
sometime lover, but we main-
tain separate apartments,
thank you. For the Orthodox
and non-Orthodox Israeli,
Israel is a marriage a total
not partial commitment.
What of the future relation-
ship of American Jews and
Israel? Perhaps there will be a
small, temporary drop-off in
monetary and political com-
mitment. However, since the
American Jews do not, in any
case, immigrate in significant
numbers to Israel, and since
Israel is the key to the Ameri-
can Jewish identity, the same
level of partial commitment
that exists now will most prob-
ably continue. After the anger
subsides, and the shame.
For, in the final analysis,
American Jews need Israel
more than Israel needs Ameri-
can Jews.
A rude awakening, indeed.

Sara Lee To Pay
Boycott Fine
The Sara Lee Corporation
has agreed to pay a penalty of
$725,000 to settle charges that
it violated the anti-boycott pro-
visions of the Export Adminis-
tration Act (EAA). This is the
second largest civil fine levied
by the Commerce Department
in the ten years it has enforced
the U.S. anti-boycott law. The
largest fine, $995,000, was
imposed last April on Safeway
Stores. The charging letter
issued by the Office of Anti-
boycott Compliance (OAC)
accused Sara Lee of furnishing
prohibited information to
Kuwait when seeking to regis-
ter a trademark there. Sara
Lee was not charged with boy-
cotting Israel or refusing to
trade with it.
OAC alleged that Sara Lee
had submitted two affidavits
to Kuwaiti officials in 1986,
giving the names and national-
ities of 39 members of the
board of directors and execu-
tive officers of a subsidiary,
and the same information for
190 directors of other subsidi-
ary corporations. OAC re-
garded the submission of each
name as a separate violation,
theoretically subject to a maxi-
mum fine of $10,000 or a
cumulative maximum of
$2,290,000.
Sara Lee had originally
refused to settle and the mat-
ter had been scheduled for an
administrative hearing before
an administrative law judge of
the Commerce Department.
Before the hearing began Sara
Lee settled, but has neither
admitted nor denied its role in
the alleged violations.

Root Cause of Terrorism
Continued from Page 8
known to sponsor, manage and
fund the training of terrorists.
Muammar Khaddafi (quoted
in The New York Times, Jan.
15, 1986): "I declare that we
shall train them for terrorist
and suicide missions and allo-
cate trainers for them and
place all the weapons needed
for such missions at their dis-
posal."
The doctrines of terror know
no national boundaries, no
obsolescences, and no restric-
tions in terms of methodology,
ideological impetus or material
support. For example, a 48-
page "Mini-Manual" published
back in 1969 by Brazilian Car-
los Marighella, continues to
inspire and teach guerrilla
activities to extremists on both
the radical left and the fanati-
cal right in many different
countries throughout the
world.
If learning is the reed root
cause of terrorism, then
shouldn't it be possible to emp-
loy the same principles to
teach would-be terrorists those
motives, beliefs and tactics
that are alternatively more
peaceful, beneficent and con-
structive? Of course! But
that's easier said than done.
The present socio-cultural
and geopolitical environments
of the world are still unconge-
nial for mounting effective
counter-terrorist programs.
However, it wouldn't hurt to
attempt to include re-
indoctrination, "deprogram-
ming" and similar psychologi-
cal approaches in the arma-
mentariums of international
THE OTHER
BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL
The Arab states are not the
only ones engaged in a boycott
of Israel. Great Britain, which
has just completed a $29 billion
dollar arms deal with Saudi
Arabia, announced through its
foreign minister, Sir Geoffrey
Howe, that Britain would con-
tinue to refuse to sell arms to
Israel until Israel retires
"beyond the borders recog-
nized by the international com-
munity." Britain has also
refused to sell any of its North
Sea oil to Israel.
Meanwhile the Dutch gov-
ernment refuses to sell sub-
marines to Israel because of its
policy of not arming direct
participants in the Arab-Israeli
conflict. The Dutch have, how-
ever, offered to sell submar-
ines to Saudi Arabia which,
they maintain, can play a mod-
erating role in the Persian
Gulf.
The giant Japanese electron-
ics company has apparently
found a way to maintain good
relations with both Israel and
the Arab world. Sony pub-
lishes a Wave Handbook which
lists all the shortwave radio
stations throughout the world,
including Israel. This edition is
not circulated in Arab coun-
tries. For the Arab world,
SONY publishes an identical
handbook except that Israel is
not listed.

Dr. Bernard Saper is a professor of
psychology at Florida International

and mental health matters, on humor
and its applications, and on aggres-
sion and violence, including terrorism.
The North Broward Region
of Women's American ORT
(Organization For Rehabilita-

November Emigration Passes 2,000
NEW YORK (JTA) October's figures for Jewish
emigration from the Soviet Union showed a slight increase
from the previous month and, again as in September, was
the largest monthly total of Jews leaving the Soviet Union
since April 1980.
A total of 2,068 Jews left the Soviet Union in October, of
whom 192, or 9.3 percent, went to Israel, according to the
National Conference on Soviet Jewry.
The total number of Jews who have left the Soviet Union
this year to date is 13,306, the highest number since 1980,
when 21,471 Jews emigrated. In April 1980, 2469 Jews
emigrated from the Soviet Union.
Council of Jewish Federations to Open
Southeast Office
The Council of Jewish Federations (CJF) will open a
southeast office effective January 1, 1989. Based in
Atlanta, the office will serve the Florida and Southeast
Intermediate Federations and will be staffed by Barry
Swartz, who has served as consultant to communities in
Pennsylvania and the southeast U.S. for the past three
years for CJF.
Revive 'Hebrew Labor' Policy
JERUSALEM (INB) The
continuing refusal of large
numbers of Arab workers to
report for work in Israel could
lead to a revival of an old
Zionist concept: "Hebrew
labor."
Of a total work force of
260,000 in Judea, Samaria and
Gaza, over 100,000 are em-
ployed in Israel. That figure
represents only about six per-
cent of the total Israeli work
force, but its concentration in
a few specific areas gives it
more weight: for example,
Arabs from the territories
comprise 42 percent of the
total labor force in the con-
struction industry.
Chronic absenteeism has
been the rule since the begin-
ning of Arab rioting last
December. Presently about 30
percent of the workers from
the administered areas are
staying home on a regular
basis. The impact has been
significant in Tel Aviv, Reho-
vot and towns farther south,
where some 60 percent of wor-
kers from the territories are
refusing to show up for work.
In the north of the country, the
figures are somewhat smaller.
The labor crisis has forced
Israeli officials to rethink the
problem of the country's heavy
dependence on cheap Arab
labor from the territories, says
Shlomo Amir, the advisor to

Lyles' discussion will deal

tion, advocacy and research.
the minister of Labor and
Social Affairs on the issue of
employment from Judea,
Samaria and Gaza. "In the
long run, Israel can no longer
allow itself to rely on workers
from the territories," Amir
argues.
Although such a change
"could take years," he adds,
"It is clear that the presence of
Arab workers in such a large
scope has been a negative
social development, and we
must reduce our dependence
on this work force."
Singles Scenes
A new national singles organization, "Singles Scenes,"
has been established to provide contacts between Jewish
singles via travel programs and to coordinate informational
links between unattached Jewish men and women.
An initial tour of the Orient in December includes
sightseeing of Jewish interest. Sabbath meals and religious
services, a full day in Tokyo and a New Year's Eve party in
Bangkok. Groups are being formed for ages 25-35 and
35-60.
Single scenes plans to coordinate and develop a commu-
nications network for Jewish singles that will afford them
the possibilities of learning about numerous activities
meeting their special needs. A singles advisory committee
is currently in formation.
Future tours being planned include a trip to South
America, Israel and Egypt for Passover; a New York
.iumey; Ski Adventures; and special trips to the Jewish
sites of the Caribbean.
Single scenes offices are located in Great Neck, N.Y.
