Abu Hatseira on account of
taking bribes from three
religious institutions in
Bnei Berak. The Attorney
General informed Prime
Minister Begin, Abuh and
Knesset Speaker Yitzhak
Berman of his decision
taken after long weeks of
meticulously studying
eight separate police files
against the minister.
The next stage in the legal
process against the minister will
be in the Knesset's House Com-
mittee, where Zamir will ask for
the removal of Abuh"s immunity.
House Committee Chairman
Moshe Meron (Likud Liberal)
said Monday night he hoped to
keep the committee's delib-
erations short to avoid further
protraction of the case, which had
already caused the suspected
minister so much pain.
Berman said his own view, based
on past experience of immunity
hearings involving Knesseters,
was that the House Committee
should consider solely whether
the government was in some way
persecuting the suspected Knes-
seter or otherwise interfering
with his role as a Knesseter or
with the work of the Knesset as
such. The House Committee
should not, said Berman, enter
into the merits of the case in
But that is not a universally
accepted view. National Re-
ligious Party faction Chairman
Yehuda Ben-Meir, a committee
member, said Monday night he
believed the committee must
"examine the basis of the Attor-
ney General's request for removal
of immunity" and see "if there is
tprima facie case."
Ben-Meir urged the public to
Team a lesson" from the fact
that Abuh was to be charged (if
his immunity is eventually
removed) on only one bribery
issue though the press over
the past months had "accused
him of practically every crime
under the sun."
BEN-MEIR said he was not
minimizing the gravit of the sus-
pected offense. He was merely
pointing out that many other
issues cited during Abuh s trial
by press" had not been con-
sidered by the Attorney General
worthy of basing a charge upon
Ben-Meir noted, too, that the
bribery charge seemed to be
based on the evidence of state s
witness. Yisrael Gottleib, the
NRP official and former Mayor ot
Bnei Berak. Abuh's attorneys
have sought to argue all along
and are expected to argue in
court too, that Gottleib's
evidence is insufficiently credible
or that Gottleib himself is insuf-
ficiently trustworthy.
The Attorney General called a
press conference, where he dis-
tributed the charge sheet, signed
by State Attorney Gabriel Bach.
and explained his decision.
HE SAID he had turned down
police recommendations to bring
charges based on five separate
files against Abuh. A sixth, in-
volving suspected election bribes
in Ramie in 1978, was also found
lacking after long consideration.

Reagan on PLO Views
(JTA) A debate on the
Palestinian question, a
regular feature on the Gen-
eral Assembly's agenda in
recent years, opened here
Dec. 1 but drew little
attention from diplomats or
the media.
The first speaker at the
session was Farouk
Kaddoumi, representative
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, who speaks
for it on foreign policy
IN A sharply-worded speech,
Kaddoumi attacked Israel and
the United States and ailed for
sanctions against Israel for its
failure to comply with UN
resolutions. He urged that efforts
be made for a Middle East settle-
ment that would result in the
establishment of an independent
Palestinian state.
Kaddoumi also charged that
the U.S. veto of Security Council
resolutions and its continued
military support for Israel helped
the "Zionist entity" maintain its
"arrogant and aggressive"
Referring to President-Elect
Ronald Reagan's characteriza-
tion of the PLO as "a terrorist
organization," Kaddoumi said
the next American President had
forgotten the history of the or-
ganization and its accepted role
on behalf of the Palestinians.
He called on the West Euro-
pean countries to recognize the
PLO, contending that this would
"help restrain the madness in the
Israeli position."

National Chairman
Paul Rosenberg, national
chairman of UJA missions an-
nounces the appointment of
James B. Baer, as national chair-
man for the country-wide leader-
ship mission scheduled for March
1-10, 1981. Rosenberg indicates
that UJA expects participants on
this mission to represent com-
munities from coast-to-coast.
In making the appointment,
Rosenberg stressed Baer's ex-
perience in organizing and run-
ning missions and his recognized
leadership within the national
UJA community.
When contacted by phone by
The Floridian, Howard Stone,.
national UJA overseas mission
director, commented, "I worked
closely with Jimmy on previous
missions. I know of no one who
pays closer attention to detail
and who is more conscientious in
providing the fullest Jewish
experience possible within the
context of a mission. Those going
on the March mission will be
truly fortunate because of
James Baer
Jimmy's leadership."
Rabbi Bruce Warshal,
executive director of the South
County Jewish Federation com-
mented, "We in South County
should be honored that one of our
leaders has been so chosen by
national UJA leadership. I per-
sonally think that it couldn't
happen to a more competent and
deserving person."

Pledges and Performance
Ronald Reagan will become President of the
United States Jan. 20, 1981 with perhaps having
made stronger campaign commitments to Israel than
any of his predecessors. He has stressed that he
believes the United States not only has a moral
commitment to the Jewish State, but that he con-
siders Israel an ally and a strategic asset in the
Middle East.
Reagan has also promised to continue the Camp
David process, to support a united Jerusalem under
Israeli sovereignty and not to negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization, which he has
pointed out, he has no problem labeling as a "ter-
rorist" organization.
His close aides have stressed that these were not
just campaign pledges, that Reagan's support for
Israel goes back to the creation of the Jewish State
long before he ever thought of entering politics.
But Reagan, like all new Presidents, will find
that once he enters office he will be buffeted by
opinions from all sides.
Reagan, like the man he has just defeated,
President Carter, enters the White House with little
foreign policy experience. That is why it is so un-
fortunate that top-ranking members of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee like Jacob Javits (R.,
N.Y.), Frank Church (D., Idaho) and Richard Stone
(D., Fla.) were also defeated in this election. Both
were among the leading supporters of Israel in Con-
gress. Their counsel may be sorely missed as the
Reagan Administration begins to feel its way in the
complicated issues of the Middle East as the
foreign policy Establishment on Capitol Hill
provides Mr. Reagan with "logical" reasons to welsh
on his campaign promises.
Weizmann Institute Honorees
In the last twelve months, a remarkable number
of Weizmann Institute scientists have been honored
by the international scientific community.
Their research contributions range from matters
geophysical to those genetic; across remote atomic
worlds and those urgently medical. They bring fresh
understanding and data as to the forces that en-
courage harmony. And for nature gone wild, keys to
cure and prevention four of the laureates are
cancer investigators and immunologists.
The awards pay tribute to creative scientific
thinking and experimentation carried out by them
over many years decades in some instances at
the Institute's famed laboratories in Rehovot, Israel.
They hail originally, these seven, from many
spheres and places Bialystock, Leipzig, Tomas-
zew, Tel Aviv, New York, Jerusalem, and a village
called Alytus in yesterday's Pale. They number
scientists who fathered the Institute, heading up its
earliest faculties and departments 30 years ago, as
well as members of a new generation in Israel that
was trained by them.
They mirror the vitality of the Weizmann Insti-
tute campus a day-to-day congruency with Dr.
Weizmann's vision of science serving Israel and the
world community.
Their achievements will be hailed by the South
Florida community at the Dec. 14 gathering of the
Institute on Miami Beach at the Fontainebleau
Hilton Hotel. For continuing the course set in 1944
by the Institute's 13 American founding fathers,
they are helping it maintain itself as Israel's unparal-
leled ambassador among the nations. Their scientific
investigation does honor to an ancient people come
home, stirred by the spirit of free inquiry.

Lady all over again. A long time
ago, in the millenial age when a
barrel of oil cost $2.30 and
Europe was concerned with its
own affairs and not ours,
Duerrenmatt wrote his famous
parable about a rich old lady who
returns to her hometown and
offers its inhabitants a billion
dollars we almost said
petrodollars to murder her
former lover.
The townsfolk are indignant:
"Madam." they declare, "our
honour is not for sale!"
Before long, however, they
start eyeing the man whose death
would be such a good thing all
round. Hasn't he ever broken
some law? Isn't he perhaps even
guilty of some terrible crime?
Doesn't he. in fact, deserve to
die? In the end. sure enough, they
kill him in the name of right and
justice, and the money starts
coming in.
The great Swiss dramatist
hardly thought he was writing a
play about Israel today, but he
was. The whole world, East and
West, is looking hard for in-
criminating evidence against us
to please the Old Lady. They say
we're wicked, we don't deserve to
live, and what's more they're
already writing our obituary.
It's become a regular" fashion.
If 10 years ago, when a barrel of
oil cost a mere $4.40. a newspaper
editor might say to the boys,
"We need a column of nice, juicy
gossip for Page Two." today that
same editor will say. "We've a
gap on the Sports Page, boys.
Let's have some racy epitaph for
Zionism." We have become what
the profession calls a filler.
The recipe is simple. Take two
spoonfuls of settlement, a pint of
Ik-gin (photographed from above
with a yarmulke on the bald
patch), an ounce of refugee camp
and a pinch of Jerusalem Law,
mix with 150 percent inflation,
stir well and there's a potful of
Crumbling Israel.
Naturally, it's always an
advantage if your cook isn't some
known anti-Semite nor, if
possible a native German (on
account of that TV series.
Holocaust, don't you know). It's
best to get hold of a certified
Zionist. If he's an actual Israeli
citizen too, so much the better.
And thank heaven, suppliers of
the stuff of real, authentic,
made-in-Israel obituaries are
available in growing numbers.
The Old Lady expects results, the
show must go on, and our famous
Jewish self-hatred is doing a
roaring business on the market
THE LATEST obit-of-the-
week was supplied by Henri
Zoller for l)er Spiegel and ap-
peared under the promising
headline: "Is Israel an Overnight
Shelter?" Mr. Zoller possesses an
Israeli passport and is as gloomy-
doomy as they come.
Like the veteran journalist he
is, he gets all his facts right, even
if they aren't all the facts. He
duly mentions yerida. the state of
the economy, the social gap and
the shaky government, with a bit
of hamsin for good measure.
Every word, as we said, is true,
much as it may be in a piece
about the automobile in modem
civilization, say, which will give
precise figures of road deaths and
air pollution over the past 60
years and stop there. Its the
old question of whether the glass
is half full or half empty. Seen
from the left, apparently it's
quite drained.
Mr. Zoller believes that if
nobody loves us, we have only
ourselves to blame like the
Saudis, for instance, whose
reason.for not loving us must be
that we are, to quote Mr. Zoller,
"no longer ruled by idelalists
from the socialist camp, but by
capitalists." We are wasting our
national resources, he says, on
vast arms purchases, and even
"international pressure has failed
to make us revert to morality."
Well, well. And that while just 40
years ago, according to Mr.
Zoller, Zionism was accepted by
all the civilized nations of the
What Mr. Zoller forgets to
mention is that 40 years ago,
when Zionism was everyone's
darling, oil was 20 cents a barrel.
The world "oil" doesn't appear in
Mr. Zoller's obituary at all. Nor
the word "terrorism" either. It's
all just one list of the crimes
committed by 3m. Jews against a
downtrodden minority of around
800m. Arabs.
Still, Mr. Zoller is only one
little belly-dancer in the great
carnival of hypocrisy that's going
on about us today. Britain wags
its finger at us for oppressing our
minorities, keeping its other
finger in its ear because of the
noise of bombs exploding in
Belfast. The USSR shout
"Aggressors!" at us all the way
from Kabul. Both Italy and
Austria berate our autonomy
plan with their back to Tyrol,
where half a million Austrians
live under Italian rule, enjoying
cultural and administrative
autonomy while Italy takes care
of defence. The difference? A
couple of octanes, that's all.
It's a pious world. Khomeini
accuses us of holding people
captive in contravention of in-
ternational law. Castro warns us
against military adventurism,
and Idi Amin (Res.) rails at us
from his new base in Saudi
Arabia for torturing innocent
"There's only one bright spot
in all this sanctimonious bla. and
that's France, which declares
Irankly: "Sorry gentlemen, when
we need fuel we're prepared to
vote with the devil himself and
even sell him nuclear arms at a
discount." There's one honest
prostitute for you.
THE UN General Assembly,
says the record, has spent a full
third of its time on the sins of
racist Israel this year. It has
never once denounced the PLO
not for murdering Israeli
sportsmen, not for massacring a
whole busload of travellers, nor a
group of schoolchildren on an
outing. But Mr. Zoller says we
have a persecution complex, and
Mr. Zoller is an honourable man.
It's ridiculous, really. Half the
population of Cambodia is
murdered in broad daylight; in
Teheran they shoot political
prisoners by the dozen. Viet-
namese refugees are robbed,
raped and drowned on the high
seas every day; Iraq invades
Iran, the Soviets Afghanistan.
The four corners of the world are
going up in flames and the
world itself is discussing a
yeshiva that we may or may not
build in Hebron.
Hypocrisy reaches a peak when
it gets to "the Palestinian
question." Mr. Zoller himself
nearly chokes with sobs when he
refers to the Palestinians, "who,
with tragic symbolism, call
themselves the Jews of the Arab
Mr. Zoller is far too polite to
ask awkward questions, though,
like why did the Palestinians
never let out the faintest squeak
about their "right of self-
determination" before 1967. He
pretends not to know that neither
Jerusalem nor the West Bank
ever belonged to any Arab
country, but were seized by
Jordan in 1948.
He also conveniently ignores
the fact that half a million Israeli
beggars absorbed over a million
refugees from Arab coun,trie
immediately atter sU

Holocaust Observer's Biography
Appears in Montreal Edition
MONTREAL (JTA) The first biography in
English of Arthur Zygielbaum, the Polish Jewish labor
eader who tried to alert the Allies to what was to become
known as the Holocaust, has been published by the Work-
men's Circle in Montreal.
"Faithful Unto Death: The Story of Arthur Zygiel-
baum," is written by Montreal playwright Aviva Ravel
and represents a collation of existing Yiddish materials on
Zygielbaum, including his personal memoirs and poetry.
Proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the
building of a monument to Zygielbaum in the pre-
dominantly Jewish Montreal suburb of Cote St. Luc.
The Jewish Labor Bund, the Jewish Community
Federation of Greater Montreal and the Workmen's Circle
in New York assisted in the publication of the book.
Zygielbaum committed suicide in 1943 while serving as a
representative in the Polish government-in-exile in

chairman of the Boca West 1981
UJA Federation drive announces
the Boca West Cocktail Party to
be held Sunday, Dec. 28, from 4
to 6 p.m. at the Bridgewood
Recreation Center.
Rothfeld indicated that the
cocktail party is intended to
bring Jewish residents of all of
the area in Boca West together.
"As important as money raising
is, the hope that we can begin to
form an identifiable Jewish com-
munity within the Boca West
complex is just as important," he
"Anyone conversant with the
Israeli economic situation knows
who met with Carter, but not
with President-Elect Reagan,
said Carter shared his view that
there was no alternative to the
Camp David process inasmuch as
it is based-on a binding inter-
national convention.
He said it was not clear
whether Carter intended to take
any further measures in the
Middle East before his term
expires in January, but it ap-
peared certain that there will be
no Mideast summit meeting until
after Reagan is inaugurated Jan.
Begin repeated that he did not
ask for a meeting with the Presi-
dent-Elect, and no pressure was
brought to bear for such a
meeting while he was in the U.S.
He insisted that he was not
offended by the fact that Reagan
did find time "for a courtesy
meeting" with West German
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt in
Washington, although a week
earlier, when asked if he would
meet with Begin, the President-
Elect said it would be unseemly
for him to meet with any foreign
head of government before his
how important this year's UJA
drive is. If there ever was a time

added Rothstein.

Dr. William Kaplan, Abner

The Jewish Ftbridian of South County
F"dy. December Hi
Weizmari Seeks Political Base in New Party to be Led by Dayan
mer Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman, who voted against the
Likud-led government on a
motion of no-confidence in the
Knesset, and who has been
justed from the Herat Party, is
actively seeking a new political
formed Yigael Yadin's
Democratic Movement for
Change which proceeded to
distintegrate after an impressive
electoral showing in 1977. It
would be, he said, a real alter-
native to the Labor Party and
Likud, and, if Weizman has his
way, it will be headed by former
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan.
He insisted that it would not
be a coalition of loosely tied
dissenters such as those who Dayan is the political figure best
titted to be Israel's next Prime
Minister. He is a man of out-
standing personal achievements
and great vision, better accepted
in the world at large and in the
Arab world in particular than any
other Israeli. Weizman siad.
Weizman's bombshell his
apparent writing off of any future
for himself in Likud and his
selection of Dayan rather than
himself to lead Israel out of its
many difficulties touched off
Israel Keeps Eye Out On Syria-Jordan Buildup
Israel is keeping a close
watch on what it regards as
a "significant" build-up of
Syrian troops on the Jor-
danian border. While that
development appears re-
lated exclusively to the
growing tension between
Syria and Jordan. Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
considered it sufficiently
important. as Defense
Minister, to report the situ-
ation to the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Se-
curity Committee.
The Syrian aim appeared to be
to coerce Jordan into cancelling
the Arab summit meeting. The
meeting opened on schedule in
Amman bul with the absence of
five reiectinnist states Syria,
Lebanon, South Yemen. Libya
and Algeria and the Palestine
Liberation Organization. Those
countries opposed a summit
meeting at this time because of
the divisions in the Arab world
arising from the Iraqi-Iranian
Syrian threat, apparently relying
on its very strong armored corps
and highly mobile army which
are considered quite capable of
repulsing any Syrian attack.
Nevertheless. Israeli military ob-
servers warned that while the
Syrian troop concentrations are
of a demonstrative nature, the
situation could get out of hand.
They recalled Syria's at-
tempted invasion of Jordan in
1970 when King Hussein was
battling Palestinian terrorists.
Military sources reported that
Syrian units deployed facing
Israel on the Golan Heights have
been unusually quiet, indicating
a signal from Damascus that
Syria has no intention of moving
against Israel.
IT WAS learned, meanwhile,
that Israel and the U.S. are ex-
changing views over the tension
on the Syrian-Jordanian border
and the large military concentra-
tions on both sides. Skirmishes
that may escalate out of control
are considered a possibility.
Deputy Defense Minister Mor-
dechai Zipori and Gen. Abraham
Tamir. chief of planning at
General Headquarters, will leave
for Washington shortly to reopen
the strategic dialogue with the
U.S. The Syrian-Jordanian
border situation is expected to be
an orgy of speculation in political
quarters here. Only the evening
before, Weizman dined with
Dayan and they apparently
discussed the political situation.
They have in common the fact
that both served in Prime
Minister Menachem Begin'a
coalition Cabinet and both quit
- at different times largely
because of dissatisfaction with
Begins domestic and foreign
policies. Both voted against the
BUT DAYAN said after he left
the Cabinet in October, 1979 that
he would serve out his term as an
independent MK and not seek
reelection. He reiterated in an
interview that he is not presently
planning to join a party or to take
part in political activity in the
future. 'Today, I have no in-
tention to ran for the Knesset" in
the next elections, Dayan said,
but "there might be another
situation tomorrow."
Many observers believe that
without a man of Dayan's stature
and prestige to lead it, a new
political movement would get
nowhere. Weizman would not say
during his interview who else he
had in mind to make up the new
party. "There are those who are
interested and those who are
not," he said.
He observed that his people
need not come from the existing
political spectrum. "There are
others who wish to see better
government, for the good of the
people and the State," he said.
"A new party is not an end but
the means to lead the country to
a better way."

as a negative factor in owl
economy. Peace, if properly I
handled, should have brought I
more Jews here and more in-

is misleading. It brings a feeling

downfall," he said.
Weizman said, "I am in good
relations with 118 members of the
Knesset. I am the 119th. The one
missing is Begin. I am sorry for
that. If Begin heads the Likud in
the next elections it would be a

Weizman said, "I am for
advancing elections. We were not

We were not elected to bring 130
percent inflation. Let's go to the
nation and see where we stand.
He also supported autonomy on
the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
"We have signed an accord by
which the situation there will be
changed. My concept of
autonomy is simple: everything
except an army and foreign
policy. Palestinian entity? Yes.

Camp David and after three or

Earthquake Relief for Italians
B'nai B'rith International has announced it will
Icontribute $1,000 to the people of Italy for relief
laid in the wake of the devastating earthquake
that has taken the lives of thousands and left

Jack J. Spitzer, B'nai B'rith president, said in a
Isutement from Hong Kong that additional funds
(will be forthcoming from B'nai B'rith sub-
visions outside the United States. The Jewish
ervice organization has members in 42 countries
|throughout the world.
Spitzer said, "It is only fitting that in this

I Ambassador to Israel Henry Lewis and the
American Consul in the old city of Jerusalem,
iThomas Waukitch, according to Ha'aretz. Lewis
deplores the pro-Arab policies of the Consul,
which finds expression not only in his meetings
with the Arabs, but also in his statements to
|Congressmen and Senators visiting in Israel.
The U.S. Consul in the old city of Jerusalem is

Congressman Claude Pepper, chairman of the
House Select Committee on Aging, is urging the
American Bar Association and the Justice
Department to end age discrimination "once and
for all" in the appointment of Federal judges.
Pepper has called on the ABA to revise its
practices of almost never recommending persons
over 60 for initial appointment to the Federal
judiciary, and the Attorney General's customary
practice of proposing candidates based on this
ABA criteria.
The House of Representatives recently passed,
341-9, a sense of the House resolution which took
note of the age discriminatory appointment
procedures relating to judges. The resolution calls
upon the Bar Association and the Justice
Department "to take all measures necessary to
end discrimination against potential lifetime
Federal judges who do not qualify solely as a
result of arbitrary age barriers." The Senate
approved a counterpart measure earlier this year.
A contingent of American citizens, all sur-

Israel and around the world.
The Gathering will be held under the patronage

One leading Jewish historian Prof. Ismar
Schorsch, of the Jewish Theological Seminary -
stated that while the Holocaust could never be

history of the Jews was one of unrelieved
misfortune instead of a series of ups and downs.

that "the difference between

Reagan will put a greater em-
phasis on security, improving
Israels ability to defend itself,
thus making Israel more useful to
the United States and its allies in
the area. Carter would have tried
to effectuate a general peace in
the area through the Camp David

described as "now a dead end."

banned a political gathering of
Israeli Arabs that was to be held
in Nazareth on Saturday. Acting
on his authority as Defense
Minister, Begin maintained that
the purpose of the planned
meeting, known as the "Arab
Congress," was to identify with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization which is an illegal
body under Israeli law.
The organizers of the Congress
flatly denied the charge and said
that they would consider "all
legal means" to fight the ban.
This could include an appeal to
the Supreme Court and regional

Israel. Begin acted under the

criticized Pope John Paul II for not giving enou
support to the Egyptian-Israeli peace talks.
In an interview published in Die Welt, a few daj
after he led a delegation of 30 prominent West Gem
Jews in a meeting with the Pope in Mainz, Nachmanni
regretted that the Vatican has failed to officially recog_
the State of Israel or to send a top-ranking envoy"
ASKED ABOUT the Pope's remarks to the Jc
delegation that there was a need for all people to be re
ciled in Jerusalem, Nachmann said: "I hope that what l
Pope meant was that Jerusalem with its holy placet i
today accessible to all religions. I hope that the Po
meant he wishes peace will come and prays for it, that!
present situation will be kept untouched."
In its meeting with the Pope, the Jewish delegate
had asked the Pontiff to support the present situationi
Jerusalem, noting that never in its history was accesst
