the scenery specific to the partic-
ular region on which its activities
concentrate. The aim is to get
thoroughly acquainted with the
area and most touring and study
is done on foot.
Because the itinerary is
crowded and demanding, partici-
pants rise at dawn, or sometimes
even before dawn. Each excur-
sion includes on-the-spot ob-
servation of characteristics of the
area wild life, plant life, geo-
morphological structures and
digging into the past in the form
of visits to archeological sites.
The program includes a great
deal of hiking and climbing under
the supervision of expert guides.
Participants in the Israel Teen
Pilgrimage will have the oppor-
tunity to experience Gadna,
which is perhaps the most
unusual program of its kind for
high school students. The
program combines physical
activity with lectures and discus-
sion groups that provide an
accurate understanding as to the
contribution made by Israeli
youth to their homeland. Every
attempt is made to give Ameri-
can teen-agers insight into the
lives of their Israeli peers who are

All students on the Israeli

to participate in an eight week
study program meeting once a

Students will study Israeli his-

Big Deal: U.S. to Store Bandaids in Israel

to go beyond the

implementing the
|tegic cooperation

ident Reagan and
lier Menachem Begin
ense Secretary Caspar
Iberger, appearing on NBC-
p'Meet the Press" program,
that he expected a
norandum of under-
ling" to be signed following
elks with Israeli Defense
er Ariel Sharon last
when Weinberger was
if the talks could result in
Dckpiling of arms in Israel,
lid he did not know if the
i would get into that. How-
he specifically said that the
talks would include the need for
having hospital and medical sup-
plies available in Israel should a
conflict in the Mideast break out.
SECRETARY of State Alex
ander Haig, also made this point
on his appearance on ABC-TV's
"This Week With David Brink-
ley." Haig noted that when he
outlined the cooperation agree-
ment at the end of Begin s visit
to Washington, he specifically
mentioned the stockpiling of
some medical supplies in Israel, a
possible joint U.S. Israeli naval
maneuver in the eastern
Mediterranean and joint plan-
ning against threats to the
Middle East.
The Israelis reportedly want
the U.S. to stockpile weapons in
Israel and want a satellite so they
can monitor activities of Arab
countries themselves. They now
receive information from U.S.
"spy" satellites.
"We've got to deal with the
realities of what American stra-
tegic plans in the area require, "
Haig said. "We've got to deal
with the political constraints
associated with our relationship
with Israel and the maintenance
of good relations v>
of moderate Arab regimes."
WEINBERGER stressed that
strategic cooperation with Israel
is not something new but part of
a longtime ongoing process about
the ways to defend the Middle
East against e threat from the
Soviet Union.
In his television appearance,
Haig stressed that the U.S. is
"wedded to the Camp David
peace process." He rejected the
suggestion that the process
would be over when Israel
completes its final withdrawal
from the Sinai next Apr. 25. He
said the Camp David agreements
call for a continued normalization
of relations between Israel and
Egypt, which he said has been
progressing very well in the last
few weeks, and, above all, the
negotiations to achieve autono-
my with the Palestinian Arabs on
the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Haig reiterated what he said
was the President's position on
Jerusalem. "The future of Jeru-
salem is to be decided by the
parties," he said. He said the
President also believes it should
have a "united regime in which
all the holy places would be avail-
When columnist George Will
asked Haig why in the meantime
the U.S. could not move its em-
bassy from Tel Aviv to Jeru-
salem, which is Israel's capital,
Haig replied that such a move
would "infringe on the freedom of
the negotiators. I think it is that
/ simple."
Egypt to Buy Billions in French Aircraft

of military aircraft and other
military equipment in Western
Europe during the next few years

Pessimistic View Sees Terrorism on Rise
US (JTA) How
is is anti-Semitism in
fern Europe? Does neo-
pn pose a threat to demo-
values in the European
omic Community (EEC)

none Weil, a Jewish surviv-
| Auschwitz who now serves
resident of the European

tion for these acts. If we do,
come victims of a provoca-

How to Assure Failure
The American RDF self-delusion and the
double insult to Israel are related. Without a
doubt. Israel is the most powerful military
force in the Middle East today. From the
point of view of knowledge of successful
desert warfare, Israel outdistances Egypt by
a country mile. And everyone else into the
bargain. History tells the story.
Still. Israel was not invited to participate
in Operation Bright Star.
Furthermore, with respect to a strategic
relationship between Israel and the U.S.. the
excuse that is offered on Capitol Hill is not
even clothed in the pretty garb of usual diplo-
matic mumbo-jumbo The L'.S. will not par-

would anger our "moderate Arab friends. "
Bear in mind: The major concern of the
Reagan Administration as defined by its Pen-
tagon policies is Soviet encroachment any-
where and in the Persian Gulf primarily.
Bear in mind: Among choices for a Middle
East partner, Israel would be the most potent
of military forces. Bear in mind: Still, the
U.S. opts for an illusion (RFD) and for weak
alliances (Egypt, Saudi Arabia), the Saudis
themselves being totally incapable of de-
fending their own oil fields, and so what kind
of an ally are they anyhow against the Soviets
whose weapons they are nowbuying to help
arm the Syrians?
If the object is to embarrass Israel, that
has been done. But what else was ac-

Argentina Accelerates Prisoner Release
Signs that the Argentine
government is accelerating ita
prisoner release program were
underscored by the release of four
Jews this past fortnight, accord
ing to Samuel Lewis Gaber, Palm
Beach County regional director
for the Anti-Defamation League
of B'naiB'rith.
Those liberated after being
held for years without being
charged include Deborah Ben-
shoam. now 20. imprisoned at 16:
Raul Oscar NudeL science
student jailed in 1974: Pablo
Khmovsky. a mathematician in-
carcerated for three years, and
Jorge Gustavo Salischiker, a
lithographer, held for two years
after completion of his sentence.
Mr. Gaber said that these
prisoners had been the focus of
international attention following
the worldwide distribution of the
ADL pamphlet. "Why Are These
People in Argentine j'ails? Where
Are the Disappeared?" after its
publication last May.
He went on to note that ac-
cording to Abraham H. Foxman.
ADL s associate national director
and head of the League's Inter-
national Affairs Department, the
release of the prisoners indicated
that Argentine authorities are
"registering some achievements"
in moving toward the restoration
of constitutional rights
While Mr. Foxman ia en-
couraged by the Argentine
government's release of the four
Jews and other prisoners, the
ADL National official stressed
that "it is important neverthe-
less, to continue public pressure
until aD those held without
charges are either set free or
formally charged and tried"
To that end, ADL's Argentine
Prisoner Project has published a
revised edition of the Prisoner
Project pamphlet, with the
names ana relevant data on addi-
tional prisoners and individuals
who have vanished without a
trace. ADL's Argentine Prisoner
Project is under the direction of
Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthal.

Bad Penny Nixon Rolls On and On...
Richard Nixon's most recent
disparagement of Jews, his anti
Jewish slur in connection with
America's debate over the sale of
AW ACS to Saudi Arabia, came
soon after new Nixon tape revela-
tions. A simultaneous look at
both Nixon capers is educational
In the course of the steaming
AW ACS debate, the dehorsed ex
President put forth the crude
opinion that "if it were not for the
intense opposition of Prime
Minister Begin and parts of the
American Jewish community, the
AW ACS sale would go through."
The tapes of a May 5. 1971.
talk between Mr. Nixon and his
White House Chief of Staff H.R
Haldeman. newly accessible, dis-
close that Mr. Nixon wanted to
know if "the Chicago Seven," a
group of anti-Vietnam War pro-
testers were "all Jews. '
Haldeman said half were. Tickled
with the proposal set forth in the
tape to engage thugs "to knock
the heads off" the protesters, the
President wondered out loud "if
Congress will really get a bellyful
of these people."
SURELY, we are justified in
wondering ourselves if the great
majority of Americana have by
now had a bellyful of Mr. Nixon.
His latest effort to elbow bis way
back to the center of American
policy-making in a critical hour
has to make some of his diehard
supporters a little nauseous
When they compare the Nixon
attack on Jews on the AW ACS
matter with Senator Charles H
Percy's rebuttal, they might
start to rethink their view.
For in the judgment of the
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee (Mr. Percy)
the criticism of the Ameri-
can Jewish community for lobby-
ing against the AW ACS deal is
"patently unfair." Jews, along
with all other Americans. Mr.
Percy opines, have not only the
right but the responsibility to
make their views known
The history of Mr. Nixon's
hate affair with Jews is well doc-
umented. It surfaced in his suc-
cessful effort to defeat Helen
Gahagan Douglas in the 1960
California Senatorial battle. Al-
though he rejected Rev. Gerald
L.K Smith's endorsement, em-
bracing the offer to help him "get
rid of the Jew-Communist." the
final days of the Nixon drive in-
cluded the work of a telephone
squad reminding voters that
Congresswoman Douglas was
married to a man whose original
name was Hesselberg (the late
actor. Melvyn Douglas!.
YEARS LATER, the man who
gave America the hijinx of
Watergate, which Sen. Percy has
termed "the darkest scandal in
American political history," at-
tributed his smear campaign
against Helen Douglas to the in-
nocence of youth.
Now his denigration of Jews
may well take a sordid place in
history alongside Charles A.
Lindbergh's 1941 brazen and dis-
astrous Des Moines indictment of
American Jews as players of a
lead role in forcing America into
war against the Nazis.
The new Nixon tapes also will
recall for many his boorish advice
to escorts of bis daughters not to
let the Nixon children freqwa \
art museums inasmuch as Fttkr j
Nixon linked museums in ha.
mind with Jews. Henri
Kissriger. who prayed with al
for Mr. Nixon in the dark Wats-
gate and impeachment Una,
concluded that the 37th Pr
dent of the United Sutsi fat
tered "a dangerous brand of tali
Jewish prejudice born of if
no ranee."

the unpredictable or for situa-
tions created by the growls and
grunts of Israel's own ministers
whose public statements are
more frequently prompted by
politics than strategy.
ONE OF the most influential
of all strategists, Prof. (ret. Gen.)
Yehoshafat Harkaby, has set
down some very pertinent guide-
lines, and it is reasonable to as-
sume that they are in every intel-
ligence officer's kitbag. What
Prof. Harkaby did was to refine
all the known Arab positions into
three identifiable schools of
The first is the school of "ero-
sion": this regards Israel as dis-
integrating from within and
favors political pressure from the
West to hasten this process, sup-
ported by economic and military
measures likely to inflict loss and
undermine morale.
The second is the school of
"natural borders": this does not
believe in the possibility of total
Arab military victory in this
generation and favors political
means, furthered by military
operations, to reduce Israel's
borders to those of 1949 or even
the UN partition border of 1947.
THE THIRD is the school of
"continuous struggle": this ac-
cepts "erosion" and "natural
borders" as only short, tem-
porary phases in the process of
destroying Israel, regarding mili-
tary means, including full-scale
wars, as the best option.
Sometimes, one of these
schools is in the ascendant,
sometimes another and, occa-
sionally, two co-exist, as now
Ithat is "natural borders" which
is the Saudi view, and "continu-
ous struggle" favored by the
Syrian-Libyan-led Rejection
What they all have in common,
clearly, is the use of military
means either as primary or as
supportive to political action.
And these means are being
gathered at a startling rate.
One man who watches the
Arab military buildup with ex-
pert concern is Gen. "Arela"
Yariv, former military intelli-
gence chief and now head of the
internationally-admired Center
for Strategic Studies based at Tel
Aviv University, in a beautiful
AS FAR as Gen. Yariv is con-
cerned, the arms being garnered
by the Arabs from East and West
in huge quantities have only one
target: Israel. But it is not so
much their quantity as their
quality that concerns him and,
specifically, the fact that, to-
gether with sophistication, there
is a new simplicity in application
which reduces the advantage of
superior training and education
which have always been Israel's
best safeguard. Scant intelligence
is required to cross two lines on a
radar screen and press a button.
Aircraft against aircraft, tank
against tank or warship against
warship, even with the Arab ad-
vantage of a three-to-one (or
more) capability, Israel still has
little doubt about her battlefront
superiority in set-piece confron-
But the scenario is changing
rapidly with the amassing of anti-
aircraft missiles capable of
neutralizing the deterrent power
of the Israeli Air Force (Jordan,
for example, is about to put her
static American Hawk anti-air-
craft missiles on Russian-made
transporters, giving her much
more flexibility), the acquisition
of long-range missiles (the
Syrians have the capability of
hitting Tel Aviv from their rocket
bases), and the introduction of
self-seeking air-to-air missiles
which mean that aircraft do not
have to come into close combat in
order to engage each other.
THE TEL AVIV Center for
Strategic Studies, in a report pre-
pared by Brig-Gen. (Res.) Yeho-
shua Raviv, has concluded that,
even without the Egyptians, the
Arabs within the next twelve
months will possess the capabili-
ty of resorting to various military
operations designed to secure a
settlement desirable to them,
even though they will not be able
to engage in an all-out war aimed
at her liquidation.
There are certain pre-condi-
tions: military cooperation be-
tween Syria and Iraq, and
preferably Jordan as well; politi-
cal and economic assistance and
cooperation from the rest of the
Arab world and, possibly, mili-
tary as well; surprise at least on
the tactical level, and the con-
tinuation of Soviet military and
political aid.
There are certain safeguards
with which Israel can meet the

challenge: a high state of alert

the Saudi Navy in the Red Sea.
. IF. AS SOME Israelis still
fear, the Egyptians, after Israel's
final pullback from Sinai, rejoin
the Arab camp and eventually
the Rejection Front, will the
balance against Israel be even
more drastically altered? Zippori
has his answer.
"There are three possibilities
with Egypt. The first one, and
this is why we signed the peace
treaty, is that no matter what is
happening with the other Arab
countries, they will keep to the
agreement and not be involved.
This may be wishful thinking. It
is what we pray for.
"The next one is that they may
wait a day, or even four, to see
how things are going before join-
ing in. For us, even one day that
allows us to concentrate all our
power, especially the air force, on
one or two fronts, is worth the
price we paid for peace.
"The worst possibility is that,
as in the Yom Kippur War, they
will decide 'no more peace, we are
going to war,' and they start
moving their units into Sinai
well, I hope we give the right
answer. Meeting the Egyptians
in the desert of Sinai, without the
Suez Canal dividing the forces,
without fortifications and on
open terrain, we can deal with
them much better than if we have
to cross minefields and obstacles.
"We took this into considera-
tion. The risk for peace was pos-
sible because there are over 200
miles of desert dividing us. That
is why we keep saying there is no
camparison between Sinai and
any other part of our country, not
the Golan Heights, not Judea
and Samaria.
"Some people say that if we
nave managed it in Sinai, we can
manage somewhere else. No. As a
Jew, as a politician and as some-
one whose main preoccupation
has been defense for the past 44
years, I tell you that any govern-
ment of Israel which will sign an
agreement enabling the estab-
lishment of another Arab State,
to change the situation as it
exists now, has signed the death
, warrant of the State of Israel. It
will be only a question of time.

I :hange since the Yom Kippur
War is the fact that, whereas the
I map was once split up into
separate fronts, there is now but
one eastern front, running the
hundreds of miles from Rosh
Hanikra on the Israel-Lebanese
border, up and over the Golan
Heights, down the length of the
River Jordan and on to the
southern tip of the Arabian
This, today, is the frontline
over which Israel watches. The
burden in financial and man-
power terms is tremendous, the
degree of surveillance necessarily
acute. A new runway in a distant
Arabian desert, a new jetty on
some deserted coast, the move-
ment of a unit from Syria to a
position in Lebanon, the arrival
of an Iraqi general in Jordan: all
these tiny pieces have to be fitted
into the complex calculations on
which one day might depend
whether Israel lives or dies.
The argument rages as fiercely
among Israeli strategists as
among any other group about the
merits or otherwise of Jewish set-
tlement on the West Bank. There
is scarcely among them one who
would ever yield the Jordan River

fense Forces or the Golan Hights,

Jewish Prisoners Said to Suffer Many Anti-Semitic Indignities
If Jewish inmate decides to obey Halacha and grow payoa, he will be punished. If
a Jew observes the commandments (Lev 19:27) and wears a beard, he will be pun-
ished. If he wears his yormulke inside s building according to tradition (Shabbat 1566),
he will have it confiscated, and he will be punished. If a Jew refuses to work on
Shabbat, he will be severely punished. Since prison food is non-kosher, the observanct
Jewish inmate will eat less than others.

Correctional Institution in Raiford, Flo. Us holds a Doctor
of Philosophy degree. The Jewish Floridian has published

The rise was attributed to
lower taxes on a variety of con-
