Landmark First
JERUSALEM For the first time since
the Arab uprising in the territories began a
year ago, a Jewish settler has been convic-
ted and sentenced in an Israeli court for
killing or injuring a Palestinian.
Ysiarel Zeev, 38, an American-born set-
tler, drew a five-year prison term for
killing an Arab shepherd who had brought
his sheep to graze on land near the settle-
ment of Shilon last May 5. Judge Zvi Cohen
suspended two years of the sentence, and
credited Zeev with seven months already
served while awaiting the trial.
A second Arab shepherd, wounded in
Zeev's action, was awarded $18,600 in

Extremism of All Stripes
If you read the fine print of
the Palestine National Coun-
cil's political resolution and
take a fresh look at UN Secur-
ity Council Resolution 242, you
will understand why Washing-
ton has put the proposal on
hold, even though a number of
European nations appear to
move toward recognition of
the Palestinian state.
Resolution 242 was adopted
Nov. 22, 1967. On May 15 of
that year, Nasser's Egyptian
forces moved into Sinai.
Two days later, Cairo[s
"Voice of the Arabs" radio
program announced that all
Egypt was "prepared to
plunge into total war which
will put an end to Israel."
Thus warned, Israel did
what any concerned nation
would do: It fought the Six-
Day War against a nation that
had telegraphed its bellicose
Now comes the Palestine
National Council, scolding
Israel for seizing the land of
others by military invasion
while conveniently glossing
over Arab attempts to crush
Israel in 1948, and telling the
world that Resolution 242 call-
ed on Israel to yield all the
territories it has occupied
since 1967.
Cool heads among statesmen
drafting Resolution 242 frus-
trated Arab and Soviet deter-
mination to achieve the goal
Yasir Arafat and his hench-
man now claim was achieved.
In effect, both the Reagan
administration and President-
elect George Bush have made
it clear that the kind of unilat-
eral activity the Palestine
National Council has now
undertaken is not acceptable.
And since Arafat is now pos-
ing as a non-believer in the use
of what he terms "force," it is
interesting to note the Pales-
tine National Council's pledge
of solidarity with the Lebanese
Islamic Nationalist Forces.
As the world waits for
further developments and
prayers continue in hopes of a
genuine not an ersatz
Middle East peace, related
concerns call out for examina-
tion here.
Foremost is anxiety raised in
some quarters over the influ-
ence gained by Israel's religi-
ous right in the recent elec-

any efforts by Orthodox par-
ties to impose exclusively
Orthodox standards and guide-
lines on all Israelis, Rabbi Max
Schreier, president of the Rab-
binical Council of America, has
called on American Jewish
organizations to cool it.
The American Orthodox
leader beholds "an avalanche
of unbelievable hatred and hys-
teria directed against the
Orthodox units in Israel."
America's newspapers and
radio stations catch blame for
picturing Orthodox Jews as
"Khomeinis, fascists, crazies
and medievalists."
Actually, Orthodox religious
parties want Israel's mass
transit to come to a halt on the
Sabbath; they're demanding
that abortions and autopsies
be outlawed; and they insist
that automatic citizenship be
denied to all converts to
Judaism save those performed
by Orthodox authorities.
All this adds up to a call for
every citizen of Israel to real-
ize they are to live in a theocra-
tic state.
Even though Schreier ex-
pressed the hope that Israel's
religious parties would be
moderate in their demands,
indignation in Conservative,
Reform and unaffiliated ranks
is bound to intensify.
It seems likely at this writ-
ing that traditional American
Jewish political support for
Israel will weaken and the flow
of economic support diminish.
There is still another per-
plexing concern, especially for
residents of Massachusetts
with some aspects of the 1988
Presidential campaign fresh in
their minds.
It has to do with Bush's
selection of New Hampshire
Gov. John Sununu as White
House chief of staff. In oppos-
ing the candidacy of Michael
Dukakis, both men trashed the
Bay State and belittled
Dukakis time after time.
Bush's use of such terms as
Harvard boutique, his unend-
ing effort to raise doubts about
Dukakis' patriotism and the
energy he expended blaming
Dukakis for the wretched con-
dition of Boston Harbor when
he knew most of the fault lay
in Washington all angered
Dukakis supporters.
Sununu's obvious jealousy of
Dukakis' ability to be singled
out as the most effective
governor among America's 50
so rankled him that he gave
high priority to denigrating
Sununu is the mightiest
right-winger in a state with a
large share of cantankerous
citizens. Meldrim Thompson,
New Hampshire's governor in
the 1970s, put Henry Kissin-
ger on his select list of people
he considered no longer Amer-
Thompson accused Presi-
dent Carter of leading the
nation beside the communist
f>ath to national suicide. He
ifted his glass to the doctrine
of white supremacy. He
sneered at Maine's Sen.
Edmund Muskie, citing his
Polish ancestry.
And it was Thompson who
put the capital flag at half staff
on Good Friday.
As most campaign watchers
know by now, Sununu is the
son of a Lebanese-American
who has close ties to a number
of Arab-American groups.
These groups look to this
man, now guarding the door
outside the Oval Office, to help
weaken Washington's tradi-
tion support for the only
democracy in the Middle East,
an ally in armed might.
So when the governors of 49
states signed a document
decrying the 1975 UN resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism, Sununu was the odd
man out. Formalizing views on
foreign political issues, Sun-
unu reasoned, was outside a
governor's range of obliga-
No? Then why did Sununu
sign a proclamation dealing
with the blooody war in Afgha-
Now cast your eye on the
future: Saudi Arabia is
expected to try to buy several
billion dollars' worth of fine
American weapons.
Remember the battle that
raged over the 1981 sale of
AWACS surveillance planes to
Saudi Arabia? Arab potentates
were sitting in the U.S. Senate
salivating over their victory.
How will the Sununu-Bush
combine prove, as they claim,
that they have hearts full of
love for Israel?

Technion Students
Tutor Disadvantaged
Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology sponsors an after-
school academic outreach pro-
ject in poor communities in
northern Israel.
Started in 1983, the Pro-
gram for the Advancement of
Technological Manpower
brings outstanding Technion
students and poor nigh school
students together to remedy a
growing deterioration in the
quality of high school science
and technology courses, par-
ticularly in those areas where
scanty funds have led to an
acute shortage of teachers and
"Four years ago we realized
that there was a significant
decrease in the number of stu-
dents entering Technion from
poof regions, mainly from fam-
ilies of Sephardic and Druze
origin," says Professor Gad
Eilam, dean of students and
head of the program.
Eilan explains Technion felt
a responsibility to reverse this
loss of potential by bringing
these students up to a level
where they could compete with
more affluent youths and gain
entrance to the university.
The project was launched at
a high school in Kiryat Ata, an
industrial town ten miles
northeast of Haifa. Ninety-
eight Technion students were
selected to tutor 250 students
in mathematics and physics.
The fsBewog year, the pro-
gram was expanded and today
160 tutors teach 600 students
from nine institutions in math,
physics, computer science and
courses to enrich understand-
ing of science and technology.
Each tutor works with three
to six students in-a three-hour
weekly session, and each tutor-
ial is visited by specialists in
holography, lasers, radio,
astrophysics and polymers.
Mini-courses are also offered
by special tutors in computer
software, hardware and other
Technion tutors are selected
among outstanding students in
their second year of study or
higher. The position carries a
$1,000 annual scholarship.

response to the devastating
earthquake that rocked Soviet
Armenia, B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional has pledged to donate
$2,500 in emergency relief
funds for the victims.
A check was to be presented
to Minister-Counselor Oleg
Derkofsky of the Soviet
Embassy in Washington.
The quake, which is esti-
mated to have killed tens of
thousands of people, curtailed
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorba-
chev's visit to New York. He
returned to Moscow to assess
the "serious destruction" to
the mountainous section of
western Armenia, where the
republic's second-largest city,
Leninakan, is situated.
Refuseniks in Moscow and
Leningrad have also reacted
with sympathy to the victims

of the disaster by calling off a
hunger strike planned for
Human Rights Day, according
to the Long Island Committee
for Soviet Jewry.
The refuseniks issued a joint
statement saying, "In memory
of the Armenian victims of the
earthquake, we have decided
to cancel our planned hunger
strike on Dec. 10, and, in deep
sorrow and regret, we offer
our assistance.'

j--Bwh-rig reannointed Wil-
liam Webster as director of the
Central Intelligence Agency.
Unlike the practice in previous
administrations, neither will
be members of the Cabinet.
The 57-year-old Pickering,
the country's most senior car-
eer diplomat, had recently
been replaced as ambassador
to Israel, where he had served
since July 1985. Before Bush's
announcement, he was slated
to become undersecretary of
state for management.
President Reagan recently
named William Brown as the
new U.S. ambassador to
Israel. Brown formerly served
as ambassador to Thailand and
was once second-in-command
at the embassy in Israel.
The tall, balding Pickering
went to Israel after a wide-
ranging career in the State
Department, including four
years as ambassador to Jor-
dan. He speaks French, Span-
ish, Swahili and Arabic.
Pickering, who is known for
his outgoing and friendly man-
ner, went to Israel as a succes-
sor to Samuel Lewis, who had
served there eight years and
was very popular with Israelis.
While his tenure in Israel
was a time of continued grow-
ing close relations between the
United States and Israel, Pic-
kering also served during a
period of major public dis-
agreements between the two
countries. .

Delayniks Dilemma
Action by American immigration offi-
cials challenging the refugee status of
hundreds of Soviet Jewish emigrees can-
not be condemned out of hand, no matter
how disturbing the challenges now going
on in Rome.
The 179 Jews who have been denied
refugee visas, and some 300 other "delay-
niks" awaiting decisions by U.S. authorit-
ies, originally applied for and were granted
exit visas for Israel.
Two points are thus emphasized. First,
the State of Israel continues its essential,
ongoing role as a guaranteed refugee for
any Jew in the world, other than rare
exceptions for those proven guilty of seri-
ous crimes.
Second, the role of American Jewry in
encouraging Soviet Jews to settle in the
United States remains open to question.
Last year, $14 million was spent in this
country resettling Soviet emigres. This
year, the figure may reach $66 million with
Jews now leaving the USSR at a rate of
1,500 a month.
Saying all that, however, does not mean
that we should permit American authorit-
ies to say or imply that the persecution of
Jews in the Soviet Union is no longer a
serious problem.
It was the outcry of American and world
Jewry which opened up the gates for the
"Jews of Silence" to begin leaving the
Soviet Union more than a decade ago. We
should not and cannot let the promise of
glasnost be used to close the doors to
refugees from the Soviet Union, be they
Jewish, Armenian or any other nationality.
The frightening new development does
emphasize a need to re-examine the Israeli
position, supported strongly by the Zionist
Movement, that a primary responsibility is
to see that freed Soviet Jews go to the
Jewish State, the land for which they
requested emigration.
Alternative Traditions
In a free society, all persons strive for
maximizing their rights. In a controlled
environment, that striving is often sty-
mied. And in a less-free culture, all such
attempts are thwarted.
It is therefore an exercise in paradox,
that in the one democratic state in the
whole of the Middle East, one entire group
of people is roadblocked on its way to full
Last week, as Jewish feminists convened
in Israel, there were demonstrations at the
Western Wall. As women prayed on
their side of the partitioned wall rabbis
assailed them.
Garbed in the symbols of the faith
normally ascribed as religious mens' wear,
women read from the Torah at the Kotel.
Such was the response that the rabbi
responsible for the Wall compared "a
woman carrying a Torah is like a pig at the
Wailing Wall."
On Nov. 11, the Jewish Floridian fea-
tured a growing trend in a piece entitled
"Discounting the All-Male Minyan and
Counting the Other Half." Pragmatism,
reassessing roles and a penchant for equal-
ity dictates that many rituals frozen in
time and practice are slowly being re-
True, the Orthodox standards have pro-
tected and defended the sanctity and
stability of Judaism for generations. Tradi-
tionalists have withstood assaults on what
they see as a religious vanguard for the
ages. And, their timeless values have
helped the people Israel remain one.

To George Shultz's Credit
While he may not share as prominent a
role vis-a-vis Israel as the late Harry S.
Truman, Secretary of State George ShuKz
has set an ex post facto standard unsur-
passed by any of his predecessors.
In the most recent confrontation with
world opinion, Shultz stood firm and uns-
wayed in his determination to deny PLO
Chairman Yasir Arafat a visa in order to
address the UN on the Palestine question.
While the decision has proved unpopu-
lar, Shultz backed bv President Reagan
has stood firm and delivered an unequi-
vocal message that the United States will
not be cowed by convention.

Soviets Remove
Secrecy Ban
No Extradition For Terrorist
Officials in Moscow have
removed an important ob-
stacle to the immigration of
Soviet Jews.
Soviet officials informed a
large group of long-term
refuseniks, many of them well
known, that their purported
knowledge of "state secrets"
would no longer be used as
grounds for barring their
As many as 120 refuseniks
may be affected by the move,
according to the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews and
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
News of the development
came amid reports that Jewish
emigration continued its
steady rise last month. The
National Conference reported
that 2,334 Jews were permit-
ted to emigrate in November,
179 of whom went to Israel.
Some 15,640 Jews have been
allowed to emigrate so far this
year, compared to 8,155 last
year and a mere 914 the year
Knowledge of "state
secrets" has long been used by
Soviet authorities as a reason
for barring the emigration of
people who are presently or
were previously working in
jobs deemed to entail classified
work. The secrecy designation
is also applied to people who
have served in the military
Soviet government officials
have frequently said they were
working on resolving this hotly
contested issue, in conver-
sations with Jewish leaders
and activists, interviews with
Western journalists and
exchanges with members of
the American government.
Kosharovsky Affected
Soviet leaders have some-
times maintained that the
secrecy designation can be
applied no longer than 10
years after a person leaves a
job so classified. The reality is
that the status is often extend-
ed for far greater duration.
Lifting of the secrecy desig-
nation does not guarantee per-
mission to emigrate, but does
clear a sizeable obstacle in that
SHAMIR Offices Opens in New York
"SHAMIR," the Association of Jewish Religious Scien-

offices in New York City. The goal of this organization is to
"ensure the survival of Soviet Jews as Jews within the
Soviet Union, in Israel and in the Diaspora.
Established in 1972 by Professor Herman Branover,
professor and innovator in the field of magneto-hydro
dynamics and the first Jewish doctor of science and full
professor allowed to leave the USSR, "SHAMIR" set out
to create Jewish awareness within the Soviet Union
through the promotion of Jewish education.

rorist believed responsible for

that "he is a Palestinian fight-

Labor-Likud Resume Unity Talks
Labor Party's Central Com-
mittee voted decisively to
resume negotiations with
Likud for a broad-based coali-
tion government.
Likud, still bogged down in
talks with the ultra-Orthodox
and far right-wing parties, was
unable to present Labor with
the fait accompli of a narrow
governing majority, as Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir had
hoped to do before the Central
Committee voted.
Israel Radio announced the
secret vote was 690-390 in
favor of an alliance with Likud,
as urged by party leader Shi-
mon Peres and almost all other
Laborites of ministerial rank.
Israel Television shortly
afterward said the vote was
638-349. By either count, it
was evident that many of the
Central Committee's 1,300-
plus members did not cast bal-
Discover Five Star
Value in Israel
But simmering discontent
with the party's leadership,
widely blamed for its weaker-
than-anticipated showing in
the Nov. 1 Knesset elections,
did not surface at the Central
Committee session, contrary
to the predictions of some
The committee was con-
vened in response to a dra-
matic plea by President Chaim
Herzog for the two major par-
ties to get together and form a
broad, stable government for
the good of the country.
Its decision reversed that of
the party's 120-member lead-
ership bureau, which defied
Peres by rejecting a new
approach to Likud in an upset
vote here.
In favor were Peres, who is
foreign minister in the outgo-
ing Labor-Likud unity govern-
ment, Defense Minister Yitz-
hak Rabin and Education Min-
ister Yitzhak Navon, a former
president of Israel. Opposing it
were Labor Party Secretary-
General Uzi Baram; Yitzhak
Ben-Aharon, the 83-year old
former secretary-general of
Histadrut; and Michael Bar-
Zohar, a Knesset member and
longtime critic of the present
party leadership.
Peres put his position as
chairman on the line in an
impassioned plea. "My head is
in your hands," he said. "Any-
one who wants to cut it off can
do so."
In Jerusalem, meanwhile,
Likud signed a coalition accord
with the far right-wing Tehiya
party. It pledged, among other
things, to build 40 new Jewish
settlements in the adminis-
tered territories over the next
four years.
But Peres and other Labor-
ites made clear that their deci-
sion to negotiate with Likud is
contingent on its reopening
the agreements it reached
with the religious parties and
keeping the three secular
right-wing parties Tehyia,
Tsomet and Moledet out of
the projected government.
"We will go with the Ortho-
dox, because we courted
them," Rabin declared. But
Labor would not be part of any
government committed to a
massive settlement plan.
Orthodox Protest Exemptions
JERUSALEM (JTA) Hundreds of Orthodox Jews who
have served in the armed forces demonstrated here against
widespread criticism of the exemptions from compulsory
military service given to yeshiva students.
The reserve officers and soldiers conducted a march to
the Prime Minister's Office to show that the Orthodox are
an integral part of the security forces.
Yeshiva students and other religious Jews, meanwhile,
have decided to volunteer for armed patrols to secure the
old Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives after dark.
There has been a rash of vandalism at the cemetery.
About 100 tombstones have been desecrated this year,
apparently by Arabs.

WOMEN FOR PEACE a gathering of Jewiwsh women
feminists who call for peace approached the Western Wall in
Jerusalem, where Francine Klagfbrun of New York, Ortho-
dox belief is blasphemy. Other women wore skullcaps and
prayer shawls traditionally worn only by Jewish men.

Feminists Harrassed At Western Wall
About 100 Diaspora Jewish
women, many of them Ameri-
cans, were called "pigs" and
otherwise harassed by reli-
fious extremists when they
eld a prayer service at the
Western Wall in Jerusalem's
Old City.
The worshipers, who were
among 500 women from 25
countries attending the first
International Conference on
the Empowerment of Jewish
Women, were the targets of
insults and curses by ultra-
Orthodox men and women who
pray regularly at the holy site.
A Reform rabbi from
Toronto, Debra Brin, con-
ducted the service, which
marked the final day of the
As the feminists, many
wearing skullcaps and prayer-
shawls, prayed and read from
the Torah, black-garbed men
shouted and pounded on the
wooden barricades that sep-
arate male and female wor-
shipers at the Wall.
Said one pious Jew, "The
spectacle of a woman carrying
the Torah is as scandalous as
bringing pigs to the Kotel," as
the Western Wall is known in
"In the name of God, Iprot-
est," shouted another. "This is
a holy place for all of Israel and
they are defiling it."
An elderly Orthodox woman
pushed and shoved the foreign
women, screaming that they
were desecrating the Torah.
"Disgraceful," snorted
Rabbi Yehuda Getz, the func-
tionary in charge of the West-
ern Wall. He was referring to
the foreign women, not the
behavior of his ultra-Orthodox
He conceded to reporters
that the prayer session did not
itself violate halacha (religious
law). But the Wall "is a holy
place, not a place for demon-
strations," he said.
The targets of the attack
seemed to accept it with
equanimity. Helene Ferris, a
Reform rabbi from New York,
told reporters, "We came here
to pray. That's all."
But author Blu Greenberg,
also of New York, said it was
"unfortunate that something
like this turns their world
upside down. They should real-
ize that prayer isn't only for
men. It would be nice if they
could accept reality," said
Greenberg, who is Orthodox.
Neo-Nazis Recruiting the Swiss
GENEVA (JTA) A group of German neo-Nazis is
trying to recruit like-minded persons in Switzerland.
According to a Swiss radio report, their initial target is
Germans living in Switzerland. Letters have been sent to
hundreds, asking them to join the movement.
No Jamming
On Israel Radio
Soviet Union has stopped jam-
ming radio broadcasts from
Israel Radio confirmed these
facts in a telephone interview
with long-time refusenik Yuli
Kosharovsky, who has been
denied an exit visa since 1971
because he had knowledge of
"state secrets."
Kosharovsky was asked to
tune in his radio to the Israeli
broadcasting band. The Jeru-
salem broadcast was heard
loud and clear in the Soviet
capital, with no interference.
The Soviets also reportedly
have ceased jamming broad-
casts from the United States
and Western Europe. British
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher was credited with
having influenced Soviet Pres-
ident Mikhail Gorbachev, with
whom she has good relations.
