Rare Jewish Response
To Rushdie Affair
By
ANDREW SI LOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) Major
Jewish organizations, so often
at the forefront of struggles
for human rights and freedom
of expression, have had only a
muted reaction so far to the
predicament of British writer
Salman Rushdie.
An exception has been the
World Jewish Congress and
American Jewish Congress.
The WJC American Section
stated that it "deplores and is
dismayed" by Iranian leader
Ayatollah Khomeini's death
threat against the Indian-born
novelist.
AJCongress called on the
U.S. government and the
United Nations "not only to
register worldwide revulsion
over these abominable threats,
but to recommend appropriate
concerted action to prevent
them from being carried out."
Khomeini and his followers
believe Rushdie's book, "The
Satanic Verses," blasphemes
Islam by caricaturing the pro-
phet Mohammed.
Individual Jewish writers,
either in interviews with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency or
as part of writers' organiza-
tions, have also deplored the
death threat and the reluc-
tance of some bookstore chains
to stock the novel.
Asked in those interviews
whether Jews might also be
angered by a book that mocks
their beliefs or history, many
of the writers agreed but said
there are ways of expressing
anger short of death threats or
book burnings.
Unfortunately, they said, an
odious anti-Semitic tract is the
price to be paid for the princi-
ple of freedom of expression.
Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, chair-
man of the WJC American
Section, said he was surprised
by the lack of a greater Jewish
response to the Rushdie affair,
although he said he understood
the hesitation.
"I imagine part of it may be
concern of further weakening
relations between Iran and
Israel, and endangering the
lives of Jews in Iran," he said.
"It's a delicate question we
weigh all the time."
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, a
former director of interreligi-
ous affairs for the American
Jewish Committee who writes
a column distributed by JTA,
said the controversy "discloses
the core of a fanatic Islamic
cosmology, which defines man-
kind as pitted in a clash
between the children of light
and the children of darkness
(Satan).
"It illuminates the magni-
tude of the ideological barbar-
ism with which Israel has had
to contend since its founding in
1948," he said.
Ultra-Orthodox Joined
Rushdie Protest
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Ultra-Orthodox Jews joined
Moslem clergy in Israel in
denouncing Salman Rushdie's
novel "The Satanic Verses,"
which will appear in Israel
soon in Hebrew translation.
Rabbi Avraham Ravitz,
Knesset member and leader of
the Degel HaTorah party, told
the Knesset Education Com-
mittee that the author had
"abused the freedom of ex-
pression to hurt religious feel-
ings of hundreds of millions
of Moslems throughout the
world."
Islamic fundamentalists con-
tend the book blasphemes
their faith.
The Indian-born British
author went into hiding when
the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini of Iran offered $1 million
for his murder.
Sheik Mohammad Hubeishi,
the kadi or Moslem religious
judge of Acre, warned that
publication of "The Satanic
Verses" in Israel would sour
the "delicate relations"
between Jews and Arabs.
Keter, one of Israel's largest
publishing houses, announced
it had contracted to publish the
book here and was seeking a
translator.
But Niva Lanir, Keter's
chief editor, said the contract
was signed on the basis ol
pre-publication catalogues,
long before the controversy
over the book erupted.
Sheik Zaki Madladj, the kadi
of Jerusalem, admitted to
army radio that neither he nor
any other Moslem clergy in
Israel had read Rushdie's
book.
He said that while the book
could not weaken a Moslem's
faith in God and his prophet,
Mohammed, he opposed any
confrontation with religious
beliefs held by the masses,
Jewish, Christian or Moslem.
"God is sacred to everyone,
and no one has the right to
come and shake this belief,"
Madladj said.
He accused Rushdie of
attacking religion "to sell
more books and make more
money."
But the kadi did not agree
the ayatollah should have put a
price on Rushdie's head. "No
one delegated us with an
authority to threaten his life,"
he said.
Rabbi Ravitz also protested
the threats by the Iranian lead-
ers.
Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, right, and human rights activist
Andrei D. Sakharov, met recently at the New York home of
Ronald Lauder, former U.S. ambassador to Austria. Also
present was the Simon Wiesenthal Center's legal counsel Martin
Mendelsohn, rear right. Wiesenthal, who had never before met
Sakharov, was a member for ten years and three-time chairman
of the committee that defended and supported the Soviet nuclear
physicist who had been banished to Gorki because of his outspoken
criticism of the Soviet government.
Ad Is a Blatant Fraud
and identified as "a special cor-
respondent of the Frankfurter
Zeitung."
The South African Zionist
Federation said it discovered
on investigation that "the
photograph used was not an
original, out was a combina-
tion of two photographs"; the
Frankfurter Zeitung news-
paper "has not been in print
since 1933"; and that Leopold
Weiss "converted to Islam
some 50 years ago."
JOHANNESBURG (JTA) -
The South African Zionist
Federation has exposed as
fraudulent an advertisement
widely published in South
Africa alleging Israeli brutal-
ity toward Palestinian child-
ren.
The ad, which appeared in
major dailies throughout the
republic, offered awards total-
ing 2,000 rand (about $800) in
prizes for the best caption to a
photograph that purported to
be that of an Arab mother
snatching her child from "the
clutches of soldiers in Israel."
The ad was sponsored by the
Islamic Propagation Center in
Durban. It contained a state-
ment criticizing Jews for
thinking "of the Zionist-Arab
conflict in Jewish terms only."
The statement was by
Leopold Weiss, described as
an "Austrian German Jew"
Teddy Kollek Wins Post; But Party Loses Plurality
JERUSALEM Popular
Mayor Teddy Kollek won a
fifth term in the Tuesday, Feb.
28, elections, but appears to
have lost his party's majority
on the City Council.
Races in other cities show
that Labor and Likud parties
both lost and gained tradi-
tional strongholds.
Israeli newspapers reported
Wednesday morning that Kol-
lek's One Jerusalem party had
gained only 12 or 13 seats on
the City Council.
Kollek's party, which had
controlled 17 of the 31 seats on
the council, appears to have
been stifled by a large turnout
of ultra-Orthodox voters and
an Arab election boycott. Kol-
lek, 77, was first elected in
1965 and is well-known for
what now may be his shattered
dream of a "United Jerusa-
lem."
Kollek lavished praise on the
Arabs who did turn out to
vote. An estimated 3,000 out
of 79,000 eligible Arab voters
braved the boycott called by
leaders of the Palestinian
uprising. Many of the shops in
East Jerusalem were closed
and shuttered by their Arab
owners, it was reported.
Teddy Kollek
Power in the city of Beer-
sheva switched from Labor to
Likud. In Haifa, a traditional
Labor stronghold, Mayor Arie
Gurel barely held onto his seat.
In Tel Aviv, Mayor Shlomo
Lahat, affiliated with Likud,
received 55 percent of the
vote, down two percent from
his last election bid, according
to the Israeli Consulate in
Miami.
"There's some significance
to the parties," said Consul
General Rahamim Timor.
"But so far this doesn't indi-
cate anything because elec-
tions are geared more toward
personalities."

Administration's Good News
It is not even two months since the Bush
Administration took office, but Secretary of
State James Baker's actions have demon-
strated already that it is as firmly committed
to the State of Israel as its predecessors.
Mr. Baker did, in fact, turn down Israel's
official request that America cut off its dia-
logue with the PLO because five "fighters" of
the Palestine Liberation Organization
launched an attack from Lebanon against
Israel. The Israeli army killed all five before
they could penetrate Israeli territory.
But the Secretary, at the same time, warned
Chairman Arafat and the PLO that the United
States demands an end to terrorism by Pales-
tinians inside and outside of Israel, against the
Israeli military as well as against civilians.
And Vice President Dan Quayle, in his
message to the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith at the ADL's annual meeting in
Palm Beach, reassured one and all of the
American commitment to Israel.
On a less official note, almost without
exception, the columnists and commentators
who have been the most outspoken supporters
of both former President Reagan and of
President Bush have reaffirmed their distrust
of the PLO and their support of the Jewish
State.
None of this means that the American
Jewish community can or should let down its
guard against any resurfacing of the pro-
Arabists in the State Department. They are
still there, as they have been throughout
Israel's independence, waiting to take charge.
Certainly, for now, James Baker need not
take a back seat to George Schultz as a friend
of Israel. And that is good news indeed.

Looking Forward
When the Solomon Mikhoels Jewish Cul-
tural Center opened in Moscow more than two
weeks ago, there was jubilation in the streets
and worldwide. But, there was also a focus
backward on the past. Indeed, a Russian
language version of the Holocaust exhibit
"The Courage to Remember" was a center-
piece of the celebration.
This past week, though reflected in a smaller
spotlight, the Judaic Studies Center opened in
that same Soviet city.
For the first time in 72 years, a rabbinical
seminary sanctioned by the state has allowed
students of Judaica to matriculate for the
purpose of encouraging religious education in
that republic.
A three-year curriculum has attracted 80
students to be taught, this first semester by a
faculty comprised of American and Israeli
academics.
While the seminary is funded by an Ameri-
can group that supports the Israeli founder,
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, the fact that the
Yeshiva opened, and was officially allowed to
do so in the Soviet Union, is a landmark
despite the absence of Russian rubles.
Those American Jewish agencies which sup-
port a waiver of the Jackson-Vanik amend-
ment as regards the most favored nation
status of the U.S.S.R. will now have one more
discussion point in their favor.
With the increase in numbers of Soviet Jews
being allowed to emigrate and the relaxation
of heretofore religious restrictions now noted
in Russia, President Mikhail Gorbachev may
merit the consideration of increased encour-
agement.
PLO Indictment:
Did Geneva Supersede A Igiers ?
Following Secretary of State
James A. Baker's warning to
the PLO that its recent ac-
tivity "gives us trouble," the
American Jewish Congress
has issued a study of the PLO's
current posture and inten-
tions. This study, entitled
"The Palestine National Coun-
cil Resolutions: A Re-examina-
tion in Light of Stockholm,
Geneva, and Subsequent PLO
Statements," examines the
resolutions adopted by the
PLO's Palestine National
Council last November and
their interpretation by PLO
chairman Yasir Arafat and
other top PLO leaders.
Arafat's statement in
Geneva last December was
construed by the U.S. Admini-
stration as signifying PLO
acceptance of Resolutions 242
and 338, recognition of Israel's
right to exist, and renunciation
of terrorism. The Arafat state-
ment, which consequently led
to the initiation of a "substan-
tive dialogue" between the
United States and the PLO,
has been described by PLO
officials as an accurate inter-
pretation of the PNC resolu-
tions.
However, according to the
study, careful examination of
the PNC resolutions has estab-
lished that despite claims by
Arafat and other PLO spokes-
men to the contrary, nowhere
in the resolutions themselves
is there any explicit recogni-
tion of Israel.
Furthermore, as the study
indicates, at its Algiers session
the PLO failed to extend even
implicit recognition to the Jew-

ish state. Resolutions 242 and
338, the two Security Council
resolutions which may be in-
terpreted as implying recogni-
tion of Israel's right to exist,
were accepted by the PNC
only tangentially as a basis for
an international conference
which the PLO would agree to
attend. And as the AJCon-
gress report noted, that
oblique acceptance was further
eroded by saddling the inter-
national framework of 242/
338: acceptance of the Pales-
tinians' "right to self-determi-
nation" i.e., an independent
state and of all UN resolu-
tions "regarding the Palestin-
ian cause" some of which
plainly contradict 242/338.
According to the study,
the patent disparity between
Arafat's Geneva statement
and the PNC Algiers resolu-
tions, as well as the insistence
by Arafat himself and other
PLO leaders that those resolu-
tions are binding on all PLO
factions, clearly indicate that
the PNC resolutions have not
been superceded by Arafat's
conciliatory words in Geneva.
The following are additional
findings of the report:
Definition of Borders: The
Algiers resolutions avoided
defining the borders of the
new Palestinian state which by
implication would also have
defined the borders of Israel
the PLO was ready to accept.
Subsequent statements by
PLO leaders suggest that the
PNC may still intend to "revi-
talize" its 1974 "phase pro-
gram" for the establishment of
an "independent and fighting
authority on every part of
Palestine to be liberated."
Direct Negotiations: Instead
of direct negotiations with
Israel, the PNC advocated an
international conference in
which the Security Council,
not the direct parties, would
"draw up and guarantee the
arrangements for peace and
security."
Respect for Sovereignty: By
insisting on the Palestinians'
"right to return" to all of
Palestine, the PNC derogated
Israel's sovereign right to
determine admission and
exclusion of would-be immi-
grants.
References to Israel: While
the PNC mentions Israel by
name several times in its
Algiers resolutions, the only
phrase in which Israel's nature
is described depicts it as "a
fascist, racist, colonialist
state."
Revision of the National
Covenant: The PNC took no
steps formally to amend let
alone repeal its 1968 Pales-
tine National Covenant which
calls for Israel's destruction.
The covenant is supplemented
but not supplanted by the
Algiers resolutions.
PLO Interpretations: As dis-
tinct from Arafat's Stockholm
and Geneva statements to the
Western press, virtually all
subsequent pronouncements
by Arafat and other top PLO
leaders particularly in Ara-
bic aggravate the doubts
that the PNC genuinely
intends to move toward recog-
nition of Israel.
The study noted that the
PLO's purported renunciation
of terrorism is not entirely
convincing -because several
days after clearly and un-
ambiguously renouncing ter-
rorism in Geneva, Arafat said
that he had not meant to
"renounce" terrorism but to
"condemn" it, and that, essen-
tially, he intended only to
repeat the PNC resolutions on
that issue. In this connection,
it is significant that the PNC
predicated its "rejection of
terrorism in all its forms" on
the reaffirmation of several
previous formulations, each of
which, in effect, leaves the
PLO with complete freedom to
conduct terrorist attacks.

Jewish Authors Speak Out On
Friday, March 10, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 5
Furor Over Rushdie's "Satanic Verses
99
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Rushdie affair illuminates for
Jews conflicts that go back to
the Enlightenment of the 18th
Century.
Freedom of speech has
meant not only Jews' freedom
to read and write what they
want, but for others to publish
sometimes ugly, even libelous
ideas. Revisionist works deny-
ing the Holocaust are adver-
tised by small publishers;
Hitler's "Mein Kampf" and
the 19th-century forgery "The
Protocols of the Elders of
Zion" are readily available.
Even works by Jewish writ-
ers sometimes cause anguish.
When he wrote "Portnoy's
Complaint" in 1969, Philip
Roth was denounced as a "self-
hating Jew" whose unflatter-
ing portraits of Jewish bour-
geoisie would comfort anti-
Semites.
Rushdie raised Roth's case
when he submitted, from his
hiding place in England, a
review of Roth's memoirs,
"The Facts."
In response, Roth wrote in
the London Observer that "of
course, the tiny turbulence
that I stirred up is hardly
comparable" to death threats
against Rushdie.
However, Roth was glad
Rushdie found "some strength
in reading about my own
apprenticeship in the unfore-
seen consequences of art."
What responsibility does an
artist have to avoid offending
the sensibilities of a group?
Has Rushdie only himself to
blame for words he knew were
potentially offensive to Mos-
lems?
Chaim Potok, the novelist
and rabbi, said that, as an
artist, his own sense of respon-
siblity "is limited to my own
vision of the truth" and, he
added, "my willingness to pay
the price of that vision. If
Rushdie didn't know what he
was doing, he was either naive
or stupid."
But the point is not Rush-
die's actions, said Potok and
other writers, but Khomeini's.
Hugh Nissenson, whose
most recent book is "The Ele-
phant and My Jewish Prob-
lem," a collection of short stor-
ies and journal entries, said
certainly there are subjects
that would make the Jewish
community furious.
"The difference is no one
would put a price on the
writer's head and call for his
execution," he said. If his own
publisher came out with a
reprint of "The Protocols of
the Elders of Zion," "I would
not like it," said Nissenson,
"but I'd be damned before I'd
call for its suppression."
Potok, who took part in a
rally in support of Rushdie in
Philadelphia, said he has lob-
bied in the past against text-
books that have distorted Jew-
ish history. But he called those
efforts "acceptable maneuver-
ing," versus threats on an
author's life.
Potok noted that "The Pro-
tocols" have been reprinted
around the world, including
Arab countries, and the Jewish
response has been to avoid an
"overwhelming fuss" and
create interest in the book that
Chaim Potok
was not there before.
Anne Roiphe, who has writ-
ten a novel on the newly
Orthodox and essays on the
implications of the Holocaust,
said that while Judaism main-
tains a "fundamentalist
branch," namely the ultra-
Orthodox, "the Jewish world
has also become thoroughly
Anne Roiphe
saturated with the Enlighten-
ment."
But the Rushdie affair
sounds a warning, she said. "I
look at the ayatollah and see a
potential endpoint if our own
fundamentalists are not
checked by the rest of us."
Execution for blasphemy has
Philip Roth
its roots in the Hebrew Bible.
In Leviticus 24:14, the Lord
commands Moses, saying "he
that blasphemes the name of
the Lord, he shall surely be put
to death." In Jewish law, blas-
phemy is limited to words
reviling God, and does not
extend to attacks on religious
institutions or customs.
Modern history records no
example of a Jew being put to
death by other Jews for blas-
phemy. Even history's most
famous Jewish heretic, philo-
sopher Baruch Spinoza, was
merely banned by the Jewish
community of Amsterdam, in
1656. The official decree called
on God to "destroy him and
cast him out from all the tribes
of Israel."
In 1772, the Vilna Gaon,
Elijah Ben Solomon Zalman,
placed in herem, or excommu-
nication, the "dangerous" new
Hasidic movement and order-
ed the works of the move-
ment's founder, the Baal Shem
Tov, publicly burned in the
streets.
In modern times, the Yid-
dish writer Sholom Asch was
reviled by some Hasidic groups
in the '20s and '30s for his
portrayal of their movement
and sympathetic treatment of
early Christianity.

Friday, March 10, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 7
EDITOR:
It occurred to me the other
afternoon, while attending the
luncheon for the UJA drive
at Palm Aire, that what is
being overlooked is the ne-
cessity of such luncheons and
lots more, to be going on all
over the U.S. with guest
speakers like Jeane Kirkpa-
trick, Henry Kissinger and
Benjamin Netanyahu. The sub-
ject, without question, "The
Survival of Israel."
The UJA is important, and
has always been so, as have
other philanthropic Jewish
organizations. However, I do
believe that Israel must
remain the formidable pres-
ence it has become these 40
years, in spite of all the speak-
ers for the Arab cause and the
groups and countries world-
wide who would see Israel
destroyed. The last six months
has been depicted by an ava-
lanche of the foregoing. You
can't turn on a TV, a radio
station talk show, a newspa-
per, where you don't hear or
read the extremely slanted
information towards the Pales-
tinians. Where are the Jewish
columnists? Where is the ava-
lanche and coordination of cor-
respondence to Congress?
Where are the Jewish speak-
ers who speak to the masses?
Why don't we see them being
interviewed consistently via all
the channels as often as we
find the Palestinian cause and
slant bellowed? Where is our
Paul Revere? The Arabs are
coming?
Passivity is what helped des-
troy 6,000,000 Jews.
They talk of the West Bank,
Bethlehem, etc. being theirs,
yet the Bible says those places
were Judea. Israel has about
2,000 miles of land, the Arabs
have many, many thousands of
miles of land with compara-
tively less inhabitants. Israel
gets $3 billion per year from
the U.S.A., however Israel is a
staunch ally of the U.S. mili-
tarily, and otherwise. Egypt
gets somewhat less, and what
support does the U.S. get from
Egypt? Haifa today is a "port
of call" for the U.S. Navy and
welcome as such. This is more
than I can state for our so-
called allies. Show me one
Arab nation that has come
forth to assist in the negotia-
tion of peace in the mideast.
On the contrary, they all sit in
the background quietly to the
world, but feeding the intifada
with all at their means.
If "land for .peace" is the
answer for Israel only, then
why doesn't the U.S. offer the
Russians the same formula.
Perhaps everything west of
the Mississippi would be up for
grabs?
In spite of the UJA, B'nai
B'rith, AIPAC, etc., there will
be nothing unless there is a
strong Israel. To be apathetic
and passive now, is to doom
the future of all Jews.
Arafat speaks of peace; the
world listens and tends to
believe him. Yet all ignore the
fact that, while he speaks of
peace, a bus is blown up just
days ago in Jerusalem, terror-
ists are caught attempting to
penetrate Israel a week ago,
etc. The PLO "bible" still calls
for the destruction of Israel.
Why doesn't Henry Kissin-
ger, to name one who has been
in the forefront of the majority
of negotiations between the
Arabs and Israel, believe that
the U.S. is being sucked in to
the current negotiations under
the current circumstances,
where they will be "boxed in?"
He said so on Nightline. Why
doesn't Israel keep the likes of
Benjamin Netanyahu on a day-
in day-out basis, speaking
before audiences and media in
response to the avalanche of
Arab propaganda speakers?
In 1988-89, it's not the Brit-
ish who are coming; it's the
Arabs who are coming. Where
is our Paul Revere?

In honor of Simon Wiesen-
thal's 80th birthday, U.S. Sen-
ator Connie Mack (R.-FL)
made the following statement
in the Congressional Record:
I would like to join those
throughout this nation and
world who celebrate the 80th
birthday of one of the great
humanitarians of our time,
Simon Wiesenthal. His is truly
a story of the triumph of per-
sonal courage and faith over
evil.
It is almost impossible to
comprehend how a man could
survive four years in Nazi con-
centration camps and the loss
of 89 members of his and his
wife's family. To not only sur-
vive but to turn this personal
tragedy into a force against
evil in today's world is truly a
testament to the potential for
human courage.
Today the Wiesenthal Cen-
ter has gone beyond the study
of the Holocaust to the active
pursuit of Nazi war criminals,
documentation of anti-Semi-
tism, terrorism, oppression of
Soviet Jewry, and genocide
around the world. Now, with
the new Beit Hashoah/
Museum of Tolerance, the
Simon Wiesenthal Center will
be able to expand its education
efforts.
Thirty years after Simon
Wiesenthal pledged to become
a "voice of the victims," the
Beit Hashoah/Museum of
Tolerance will break new
ground in the continuing effort
to learn and teach the lessons
of the Holocaust. One of those
lessons is that even the most
civilized and educated people
are capable of tremendous
evil. Another is that we must
continue to be vigilant against
all forms of totalitarianism,
whether the brushfires of
resurgent Nazism on the right,
or the still entrenched gulags
of communism on the left.
Again, I extend my best
wishes to Simon Wiesenthal
on his 80th birthday, and wish
him happiness and success
in his future endeavors for
many years to come.

May Include Soviets, Others
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Jewish
sportsmen and women from
the Soviet Union may be al-
lowed to participate in the
13th Maccabiah Games this
summer, the first time Soviet
Jews would take part in the
quadrennial Jewish Olympics.
The international organizers
of the quadrennial games, now
meeting at Kfar Maccabiah in
Ramat Gan, are hoping that
the Soviet authorities will not
bar their attendance, in light
of Mikhail Gorbachev's policies
of glasnost, openness.
Michel Green, chairman of
the European Maccabi, told
the meeting that Soviet Jews
have been holding their own
little Maccabiahs in a Moscow
suburb.
Green said his branch of the
organization has invited 50
Soviet Jewish athletes to make
the trip to Israel.
He noted that thousands of
Soviet Jews have been coming
to Israel as tourists, staying as
long as three months.
Other first-time participants
at this year's Maccabiah in
July are expected from Cuba,
Hungary, Singapore, Hong
Kong, Portugal and South
Korea.
The "Bar Mitzvah Macca-
biah" will be the largest ever,
with more than 3,500 sports-
men and women from 40 coun-
tries joining 1,000 Israeli ath-
letes to compete in 29 sports.
John J. Barry, president of the International Brother-
hood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), will receive the

honor March 16 in Washington, D.C.
