Gov't Has 'Open and Shut
Denaturalization Case*
B'nai Torah Presents I.B. Singer
f A noted expert on Nazi war
criminals said here that the
federal government "has an
open and shut denatural-
i/.ation-deportation case"
against an alleged Nazi war
criminal who has been iden-
tified by the Justice De-
partment's Office of Special
Investigations (OSI) as
Vladimir Sokolov but
whose real name, according
to Charles Allen, Jr., is
Vladimir D. Samarin.
Allen, who for some 20 years
has been investigating war
criminals living in the United
States, said that the press re-
|ntried a week ago that the Jus-
i ice 1 >epartment had filed a com-
plaint in the U.S. District Court
in New Haven, Conn, against a
Inrmer Yale University faculty
member named Vladimir
BUT WHILE the man. Allen
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Vgency, "entered the United
Slates in 1951 under the name
Sokolov, his wife's name, his
birth-date registry at Oriel in the
I SSK shows I). Samarin as his
lather." The Justice Department

,(.in in depth article on Samarin.
which appeared in the progres-
-i\e monthly maga/.ine. Jewish
Currents, in November. 1976,
Allen discovered that Samarin
listed his name in the Yale Uni-
versity Directory as Sokolov-
Samarin. and used various com-
bination of those two names for
other public listings.
Samarin s name and alleged
Nazi past were first mentioned in
a February. 1976 official Soviet
Communist Youth Journal, then
in the April. 1976 Moscow Yid-
dish monthly, "Sovietish Heim-
land." Allen said. In May, 1976,
the New York-based leftwing
Yiddish Morning Freiheit carried
an article on Samarin.
IN SOME press reports Jan-
uary 28, Samarin (Sokolov) was
described as a former "instruc-
tor" of Russian at Yale from 1959
U) 1966. and quoted Yale officials
that "they did not know the cir-
cumstances under which he left."
These officials "must have very
short memories," Allen told the
"Samarin was, in fact, a Yale
lector and senior lector in Slavic
languages and literature from
1949 to 1976. He was allowed to
elect early retirement in 1976 at
the age of 63. when his Nazi past
was exposed. He was then given
what was in effect 18 months of
l>aid leave, through 1978."
Allen "stud "Yale has "never
publicly faced up to the issue, nor
fired nor dismissed him, despite
media exposure in 1976. I even
gave an extremely well-attended
lecture about Samarin at Yale
that year."

which the museum described as
"disputed territory." and that
showing the artifacts would in-
volve "security risks from radical
elements." Spokesmen for major
Jewish organizations denounced
the museum's decision as capi-
tulation to fear and pressure.
Dillon, in his response to Koch,
said, "The Met is and remains
lirmly committed to the funda-
mental doctrine that curatorial
und cultural decisions must not
lie politicized." He added that the
museum would now work "with
our colleagues in Israel" and with
the Smithsonian Institution to
move quickly towards a solution.
But Shmuel Moyal, spokesman
for the Israel Consulate in New
York, said, "To the best of my
knowledge and recollection, the
representatives of the Metropol-
itan Museum of Art have not
made any contact with the repre-
sentatives of Israel since last
July, 19bl."
Metropolitan president Wil-

does not materialize, the Met will
stage its original show as
planned. The show includes arti-

London's New Hitler Play
Nazi Accusations Against the Jews Go Unanswered
as they
were spoken
in the
London Chronicle Syndicate
As a historian. I found
this a most unsatisfactory
play. Of course its aim was
to provoke. But in doing
so, it also, in my opinion,
distorted. It had a funda-
mental flaw: Hitlers self-
defense, presented in the
second half of the play as a
series of accusations
against the Jews, went un-

two parts. In the first, a Jew re-
cites some of the evils and tor-
ments of the Holocaust. In the
second. 'Adolf Hitler" accuses
the Jews of racism, and launches
into a monologue against ti. a Jew
in history. Hitler's defense of
himself does not deny the actual
events of the Holocaust. These
are. indeed, not even at issue.
Hitler's defense is to blame the
Jews for being the originators of
a series of evils, including Marx-
ism, elitism, racism and Zionism.
THE FIRST part of the play,
the Jewish recital of the Holo-
caust, contains a number of re-
marks which show how far cur-
rent fashion in misrepresenting
the Jewish response to the Holo-
caust has permeated even the
theatre. Thus it is a Jew who
says, unless Hitler was a Jew.

years: flight and escape, armed
resistance in dozens of ghettos,
tens of thousands of acts of indi-
vidual resistance, courage in the

of holocuast atrocities so
graphically described in the first
part of the play. These were, in
themselves, very moving, at
times sickening. But they were
totally unconnected with (and
certainly no answer to) the de-
tailed philosophical diatribe
against Jews. Judaism and Zion-
ism put in Hitler s mouth in the
second part.
EVEN ON points of detail,
there were historical errors in this
first part, such as an offhand re-
mark about Churchhill. and his
reaction to the Jewish appeals to
bomb the railways and crem-
atoria. We are told in this play:
"The Old Man didn't want to
know anything about that it
was not his sort of war." In fact.

But the fundamental flaw L.
this drama remains the Hitler
monologue with which the play
ends. This is presented as Hit-
ler's defense. Point after point is
raised by Hitler, to which no
answer or argument is even at-
tempted. This leaves Hitler not
only the last word, but in fact the
first and only word on these new
and complicated issues. The Jews
on the stage sit around listening
to him, silent and pathetic. The
audience must also listen, but
unless you have a strong triple
training in theology, political
philosophy and recent history,
you will have no means of know-
ing whether what Hitler says is
true or false.
At several points, I personally
felt quite unable to test what
Hitler was saying, when he was
quoting the Bible, dashing
through passages in which the
Jews brandished the sword in an-
cient times, and themselves com-
mitted atrocities. The author
made absolutely no effort what-
soever even to suggest the sort of
answers that might be given in a
theological debate, of which this
might have been one side.
"MY RACISM." Hitler tells
the Jews on stage, "was a parody
of yours, a hungry imitation." He
gives his evidence from biblical
quotations. I am not a Bible
scholar or a theologian. Thus, in
common with ninety percent of
the audience or more, I could not
judge whether quotations were
accurate, in or out of context, or
misused. No counter-argument
was presented. Powerfully
selected and powerfully-pre-
sented quotations were used to
condemn the Jews for racism.
At one point. Hitler quotes
from the Bible that the Jewish
God is "a God of vengeance unto
the 30th generation." Hitler then
declares: "These are the Jews'
words, not mine." But on raising
this particular quotation with a
rabbi, he pointed out the correct
quotation, and its context. God
does indeed describe himself as a
God of vengeance, in fact unto
the 3rd or 4th generation (not the
30thI, but limits bis ven-
geance "to them that hate me,"
and goes on to describe himself as
"showing mercy unto a thousand
generations to them that love me
and keep my commandments."
Few in the audience could have
known the correct quotation.
Even fewer, I suspect, would
have had a rabbi to telephone in
the morning, or have had cause
las I did) to write the words down
I ALSO doubt whether even tj
dozen of the hundreds present*,
were aware of the long-standing
theological debate and conclu-
sions concerning the phrase

devastating use. as proof of Jew.
ish exclusiveness and racism.
This phrase has long been known
to have been misused.
There is in fact no biblical term
for "the chosen people" as such.
In the Bible story, every act in-
volving divine "choice" is im-
mediately followed by some
specific obligation. One is
"chosen" in order to do some
definite act, such as keeping the
Sabbath or observing the com-
mandments, just as other biblical V
nations besides the Jews are also a**
"chosen" for a particular act.
Thus the Philistines were
"chosen" to go out toCaphtor,
and Aram was "chosen" to go
out of Kir.
The Jew is chosen for obliga-
tions, not for privileges, and not
for eminence. Yet Hitler, in this

play, rubs .in that "chosen"
means elitism and dominance and
self-vaunting, and that the
superiority of the Nazi man was
only a derivative and a copying of
the Jew's own self-aggrandiz-
ment. This is a false interpreta-
tion, that the author of the mono-
logue may or may not be aware
of, but which the majority of the
audience had no means of know-
ing. Why did the author at least
not give some clue that the
"chosen people" accusation
might be a well-worn, and
frequently abused, myth?
THE DEVIL quoting the
scriptures is an old device.
Normally, as here, he quotes
them selectively. But while read-
ing a book, one can check quota-
tions. No one, as far as I know,
had a Bible in the theatre. Only a
very few in the audience, with a
real knowledge of the Bible and of
biblical interpretation, could
have caught the distortions in
Hitler's (that is the writer's)
Some of the accusations
against the Jews were com-
plimentary. The Jew had "in-
vented conscience." Through the
Jew Jesus, he had invented
meekness. Through the Jew
Marx he had invented social e-
quality. The Jewish ideals were
man's "bad conscience," the as-
pirations he could not maintain,
the goodness which he hated to
be bound to pursue, the "bacillus
of perfection" as Hitler derisively
calls it.
These theoretical charges, bril-
liantly expressed linguistically,
are no doubt good subjects for
philosophical debate.
Although not a theologian, and
therefore as at risk as the rest of
the audience, as a historian I
was constantly aware of a series
of totally unanswered charges,
which do not stand up to the
scrutiny of historical research.
These charges were based on an
ignorance of recent history. For
example, one blatant error: Hit-
ler, talking of Zionism, says,
"Would the Jews have come to
that barren patch in the Levant"
had it not been for the Holo-
THE ANSWER to this, not
given to the audience, most of
whom were surely in complete ig-
norance of it, is that half a million
Jews had already chosen that
barren patch" before 1939, and
that after 1945 more than three
quarters of a million Jews from
i Arab Lands were also to choose
it: that the coming of the State
was part of long diplomatic and
political efforts of a powerful
Jewish community, inside Pales-
tine itself, the Yishuv, with its
own strengths and strategies,
quite apart from the Holocaust.
Far from creating Is real, the
Holocaust led, in its immediate
aftermath, to the refusal of the
Mandate power to allow even
100,000 of the survivors to enter
Hitler also says in this play
that it was the Holocaust "that
made you drive the Arab out of
the field because he was lice-rid-
den and without resources."
Again, this is a current cliche of
newspaper summaries and televi-
sion surveys. But it in no way
corresponds to the complex
truth, ignoring, for example, the
Arab's own massive immigration
and increased prosperity
throughout Palestine in the 1930s
as Jewish cultivation spread, the
role of the neighboring Arab
States in urging the Palestine
Arabs to leave, and Jewish ef-
forts to persuade them to stay:
again a long-standing debate, not
even hinted at. Many of the audi-
ence were, however, unaware of
that debate, or of the actual is-
sues involved in so crude a
As with the "sheep to the
slaughter" charge, the audience
were given no clue as to the
superficiality of the statement. It
appeared as a perverse but bril-
liant and discomfiting truth.
Yet had someone on the stage be-
gun to answer it, its superficiality
would soon have become clear. "I
took my doctrines from you,"
Hitler declares, having shown in
a distorted survey of Jewish his-
tory, how Jewish racism perme-
ates both the Bible and Zionism.
But the fact that this was a
distorted survey was in no way
made clear. Indeed, by following
current, fashionable talk and
prejudice so closely, the play
clothed it in a bogus intellectual-
ism. The writer, Anthony
Hurgess, is quoted on the pro-
gram notes as saying: "Even his
I Hitler's! condemnation of the
Hebraic gift to Western civiliza-
tion has a speck of reason in it."
ONE OF Hitler's defenses dur-
ing his monologue was par-
ticularly disturbing, because,
once more, the audience could
only have believed it to be true,
and thus been even influenced by
it. "When I turned on the Jews,"
iays Hitler, "No one came to his
aid, no one." In fact thousands of
non- Jews helped Jews.
At one death camp alone,
Belzec. 1,500 Poles were executed
for helping Jews. The Bulgarian
Parliament refused to allow the
deportation of even one of the
then 48,000 Jews living in Bul-
garia. The Danish King and
Parliament warned and then fer-
ried nearly 2.000 Jews across the
sea to safety in neutral Sweden.
The Finnish Government refused
to deport more than a thousand
Jews from Helsinki to Germany.
The Archbishop of one Greek Is-
land, Zante, saved all the Jews of
his island by giving them havens
in remote villages, and threaten-
ing to share their fate if deported.
Tens of thousands of French,
Belgian and Italian Jews were
saved by villagers' and priests
who took them in .
But could the audience know
all, or even a part of this? So few
people are aware of such details.
Yet surely in a serious play, in
which so much history was
bandied about, Hitler ought to
have had his statements chal-
lenged, at least to hint at their
untruth. The author gave us no
such hints. Instead, there was the
constant, embarrassing feeling
that the words put into Hitler's
mouth did have some truth in
them. Thus the dramatist aimed
to shock us.
MOST OF those who left the
theatre, not being historians, will
have left with many miscon-
ceptions, and many current
cliches reinforced, whether it was
the wartime Jew who did not re-
sist, or the post-war Jew who
drove the Arabs from their lands:
all this by default ends up ap-
pearing to be a justification for
terrible crimes, whether the
author intended it or not.
A non-specialist theatre-going
audience, presented with only one
side of the case, cannot be ex-
pected to have at its fingertips
the knowledge of the historian or
the theologian or the dialectical
skills of the philosopher, who
here gets a free run for some very
perverse and unanswered
opinions. The author may well
make the assumption that the
audience is intelligent, knowlege-
able and critical, but this is a
dangerous assumption in the
modern age. Much of the success
of the real Hitler was due to the
fact that his audience was neither
knowlegeable nor critical enough
to see the distortions in his actual

He Went to Jerusalem
One final accolade In going to Israel. President
Mitterrand went to Jerusalem, the capital city of.
that nation. He made no fuss about it as others have
done from Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on
down. That show of good faith is something Israel
will not easily forget
None of this tempered Mitterrand's statement
about his firm belief that Israel must come to recog-
nize the need to accept a Palestinian state on the
West Bank and in Gaza.
On the other hand, it performed the important
service of separating Palestinian identity from the
person of Yasir Arafat. And suggested that Palestin-
ian doesn't necessarily mean the PLO.
Whether or not we agree with him is beside the
point Mitterrand's trip was an act of courage and
friendship. As such, it must be treated with care.

because it suggests that people have minds in the
first place. Judging by the wealth of news arguing to
the contrary. we come up on the happy side.
Do people have minds when there is so much
bigotry among them? Do they have minds when they
are prone to such high levels of violence? Do they
have minds when they hail charlatans with hosan-
nahs"* When they crown mediocrity with encomiums?
Our problem is to figure out what the Russians
are going to do with these minds once they attempt
mastery over them by mind-control. The Russian as-
sumption must be that mankind, controlled, will be a
perfect zombie, performing as commanded.
But what if Moscow is wrong? Frankenstein's

World Jewish Population
NEW YORK ZINS> Of the total of 13.027.900
world Jewish population. 6.492.000 149.8 percent) live in
the Americas: 2.969.500 (22.8 percent! in Europe, in-
cluding the Asian parts of the Soviet Union and Turkey:
*.32*.000 <25.5 percent) in Asia: 164.500 11.3 percent) in
Africa, and 74.000 (0.6 percent) in Oceania, according to
the American Jewish Year Book, published by the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee
With regard to major regions within continents.
5.998.000 Jews live in Northern America and about
494.000 in Central and Southern America; 1.120.000 in
Western Europe, and 1.849.000 in Eastern Europe ajd
the Balkans: 3.282.700 in Israel, and about 45.000 in
nther Asian countries 'including the Asian territories of
the USSR and Turkey): 21.000 in Northern Africa, and
110.000 in Southern Africa.
SINCE THE U S Census Bureau does not identify
lew* as an ethnic group, and therefore does not collect
data on Jewish population, the Year Book points out that
its figures are provided ptaumij through an annual sur-
vey of Jewish federations. Formal population studies are
conducted in some communities, while others estimate
roughly on the basis of lists of known Jewish households
Turning to the world scene, the Year Book cites that

numbers of Jews are Israel. 3.282.000: Soviet Union

entirely by worldly concerns. But
when the balance for a nation is {]

They Can Buy Our Civilian Aircraft
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration announces
that it will no longer bar
"^ Syria and South Yemen
from buying civilian air-
craft from the U.S. even
though the two countries
are still on the list of four
nations the U.S. considers
to be supporters of interna-
tional terrorism.
However, any sale must in-
clude assurances that the planes
will not be used for military pur-
poses. State Department spokes-
man Dean Fischer said. The sale
would apply only to aircraft to be
used on "scheduled civil airlines"
in the two countries, Fischer
added. He acknowledge that the
civilian airlines in both countries
are owned by their respective
governments. At the same time,
he stressed that there are no
pending applications from either
country to purchase such planes
in the U.S.
while it eliminates controls over
such sales based on terrorism
criteria, in no way alters existing
mi roK on such sales based on
(U.S.) national v-curity criteria,"
Fischer said, n ading a prepared
statement. The State Depart-
ment, only this week, announced
that Syria and South Yemen,
along with Libya are still on the
list of countries that aid terror-
^v ism. Iraq, however, was removed
^ from the list and replaced by
The 1979 Kxport Administra-
tion Act requires that the De-
partments of Commerce and
State issue a list of countries
annually which support terrorism
and therefore cannot be sold cer-
tain material and equipment. The
statement read by Fischer today
stressed that if either Syria or
South Yemen asked to buy civil
aircraft here, the request "would
continue to be reviewed carefully
in the light of national security
criteria and, if found to be con-
trary to our national security,
would be denied."
Dne element that would be
considered would be assurances
that the planes not be used for
military purposes, the statement
said. Fischer said that Syria and
Jouth Yemen have never
carted Planes used for their
scheduled air service for military
Purposes while Libya has "re-
peatedly disregarded" such as-
su ranees.
that the decision "does not con-
stitute either a softening of the
Administration's fight against
terrorism or a gesture toward
Syria and South Yemen. Our
concern with the support of these
two countries for international
terrorism continues unabated."
The statement added that the
decision "simply reflects" the
Administration's view that
"there is no link between interna-
tional terrorism and the sale of
civil aircraft to legitimate civil-
end users."

The Reagan Administration has

with Cuba. The other three cour

Libya and South Yemen.
The State Department said
that it and the Department of
Commerce, in making their
annual review of which countries
"repeatedly provide support for
international terrorism," found
that Iraq's record in 1981 "did
not warrant its continued in-
clusion on the list."
However, the Department
stressed that Iraq's removal from
the list does not mean the U.S.
plans to sell arms to that coun-
try. "We have no plans to estab-
lish a military supply relation-
ship with Iraq," the Department
said. "It has been our policy since
the beginning of the Iraq-1 ran
conflict not to supply military
equipment to either side."
The Department added that it
is continuing to block the sale of
General Electric engines for
Iraq's Italian built frigates since
this could contribute to Iraq's
"war-making potential."

Event of Year
since the days of de
But French Confused by Mitterrand's Trip to Israel
President Francois Mitter-
rand's trip to Israel is
France's "event of the
year." Some claim it is the
most important develop-
ment that has happened in
France since Charles de
Gaulle resigned as Presi-
dent in 1969 and the elec-
toral victory of the Socialist
Party last May.
No other presidential visit
abroad, no royal wedding, no
summit conference with an
American President or a top-level
meeting with France's European
partners has stirred such deep
interest and aroused such pas-
sionate emotions.
LAST WEEK, for the first
time, all French weekly papers
devoted their front pages to the
visit. The center-right L'Express
called it "35 years of passion."
The leftwing Le Nouvel Observa-
tvur printed its front page in
white and blue with the Hebrew
and Arabic words "Shalom" and
"Salam" and a banner headline
" M itterrand on a Tightrope.
The daily press, radio and tele-
\ ision devoted thousands of
words and hours of program time
to a review of Franco-Israeli rela-
tions from Israel's birth in 1948
to I he Suez campaign in 1956 and
the subsequent souring of rela-
tions under de (iaulle and Presi-
bAtdent \ alery (iiscard d'Estaing.
On the official level, at the Ely-
see Palace and at the Quai
(I'(>rsay. rarely has a presidential
\ isil abroad !>een so carefully
prepared. Mitterrand personally
wrote the speech he delivered in
the Knesset and also prepared his
responses to toasts, and to press
conference questions.
DOZENS OF officials, includ-
ing lour Cabinet Ministers and
four presidential advisers, have
bean briefed lor hours on Franco
Israeli history. Middle East
problems, Mitterrand's own
stand on the Arab-Israeli conflict
and the chances for peace.
The excitement over the trip,
which was basically a state visit.
and over what most French
people consider as the "big
Franco-Israeli reconciliation."
show that the flames of the
Franco-Israel "love affair," by
now half forgotten in Israel, still
simmer in France.
Hut the passionate interest in
Israel, and everything connected
with it, does not mean that all of
France is ardently pro-Israel.
Many French people are, but for
others Israel is a strange mixture
of love, contrition, bad conscience
and even animosity. The young
are pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian
at the same time.
FOR THE older generation,
layhich lived through Vichy and
often cooperated with this regime
during World War II. there is an
admiration for Israel's "Europe-
an and even Aryan" achieve-
ments. But this admiration is
tinged with a spot of anti-Semit-
ism and bad conscience, a relic of
the past.
Even within Mitterrand's
ruling Socialist Party, militants
and party leaders are torn be-
tween pro-Israel sentiments and
a sense of "justice for the Pales-
tinian people."
While international relations
are generally based on cold,
Valculated pragmatic grounds,
Franco-Israeli relations are the
exception, a microcosm of human
passions and emotions. Officially,
the French stress that Mitter-
rand's trip is intended to demon-
strate his support for Israel and
to give France a more even-
handed approach in order to re-
dress the pro-Arab tilt which had
Presidential aids stress
that the trip aimed at convincing
Israel that Mitterrand is "a
genuine and reliable friend."
Once this is ensured, these aides
say, France will be able to influ-
ence Israel, without provoking
any ill-founded suspicions "that
Israel's ultimate security lies in
negotiating with the PLO and
making a deal with it providing

officials, and even journalists
who know Israel well and should
know better, conclude their con-
versations by stressing that "he
(Mitterrand) might succeed to
give Israel and {Premier Mena-
t hem) Begin food for thought."
Mitterand needs a political
success in Israel for internal
reasons. The "paradise" pro-
mised by his party before the
election has failed to materialize.
Unemployment is on a dramatic
rise. The Franc is falling, and the
balance of payments in January
was worse than ever.
IN FOREIGN affairs. Mitter-
rand must convince the Arab
states that his support for Israel
is not contrary to their interests.
France depends more than ever
before on the Arab states for im-
ported oil and for Arab industrial
and arms contracts to maintain
employment and the stability of
the Franc.
French diplomats and Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson have
said repeatedly during the last
few weeks, in all the Arab capi-
tals, that France's pro-Israel
policy and Mitterrand's trip can
best serve their own interests.
The gist of their message has
been that only friendly persua-
sion can convince Israel to nego-
tiate with the Arab states and the
Palestinians and no man is better j
equipped than Mitterrand, who is
considered by the Israelis them-
selves as their best friend abroad.
Few of the Arabs have been
convinced. Only President Habib
Bourguiba of Tunisia and to a
lesser degree King Hassan of
Morocco have discreetly
welcomed Mitterrand's trip.
Even a partial Israeli response to
Mitterrand's overtures would
greatly enhance France's prestige
and interests in the Arab world.
But behind the hard political
realities, hopes and aspirations
there is another reality, equally
strong. The French are like the
Israelis, emotional people who
respond to symbols and words.

mantling green-houses, irrigation
equipment and farm implements
at Talmei Yosef in the Yamit area
of northern Sinai Monday, under
the protection of Israeli soldiers,
Illegal squatters were removed
from the place last week.
Threatened interference by
militants opposed to Israel's
withdrawal from Sinai failed to
materialize, and no incidents
were reported. The dismantling
work, necessary to relocate the
settlement inside Israel, was
abandoned a month ago when
militants attacked the workers.
The equipment and houses are
being removed first from those
settlements closest to the inter-
national border. Israel does not
want to leave any structures on
the border line that could be oc-
cupied by the Egyptians.
No attempt has been made yet
to remove illegal squatters from
Yamit. the largest Israeli town in
Sinai. Anti-withdrawal ex-
tremists there are reportedly for-
tifying buildings for last ditch re-
sistance to troops who may try to
evict them.

vote adopted a resolution this
week railing on the Soviet Union
to allow Jews there to emigrate
and (o practice their religion
freely, and also called for the end
"of 'indiscriminate arrests and
trials of Jewish activists" and an
end lo the "assaults on Jewish
self-study groups." The resolu-
tion urged President Reagan to
reite^ite to the Soviet govern-
ment the United States' strong
opposition to the harrassment of
Jews in the Soviet Union.

Greek Composer Writes
Anthem for Palestinians
West Germany to Decide Whether it
Should Modify its Arms Sales Policy
NEW YORK Monitoring sources of the World
Jewish Congress report that Mikis Theodorakis, com-
poser of the score for the film, "Zorba the Greek," has
written a "Palestinian national anthem" produced at the
request of PLO Chief Yasir Arafat.
The report of this development originates from a
monitored broadcast of Tunis-Afrique Presse (TAP) early
this week. According to the broadcast, Theodorakis
arrived in Beirut last week on an official visit to Lebanon,
having been invited by both the Lebanese Tourism Minis-
rand the PLO.
Reportedly, Arafat had requested the Greek mu-
sician to produce a Palestinian national anthem during
the visit of the PLO leader in Greece at the end of last
year. The TAP report stated that Theodorakis arrived in
Beirut to present his finished work.
Arafat's visit to Greece came in the aftermath of the
Greek elections which swept Andreas Papandreou and his
party to power. Theodorakis is a member of Parliament in
the new government. He is best known as composer of the
musical scores for numerous films, including "Z."

and its junior coalition
partner, the Free Demo-

meeting to decide whether

from West Germany's long-
standing policy of not sell-
ing weapons to countries in
"areas of tension."
The government, and Chancel-
lor Helmut Schmidt, have been
pressing in recent months for a
relaxation of that rule in the case '
of Saudi Arabia. While members
ot both coalition parties concede
that the government alone is in
churge of arms exports, they
demand a voice in the special
consultative body on the subject.
THE DEBATE has been
prompted by the pending arms
deal with the Saudis who are in-
terested in buying the recently
updated model of Germany's
Leopard II tank and scores of
other weapons systems. The
Saudi government has been
negotiating for the past two
years with arms manufacturers in
West Germany. Agreements
have been reached with two pro-
ducers involving the Leopard
tanks. All that is required to con-

Schmidt is said to be cam-

Filling in Background
Mitterrand Assures Israel of 'Right to Live'
President Francois Mit-
terrand told the Knesset
that the position of France
in the Middle East is predi-
cated on Israel's funda-
mental "right to live," but
it is a right, he declared,
which cannot be denied to
the Palestinians. They can-
not be expected to give up
this right, he asserted.
Mitterrand's address to the
Knesset, the highlight of his
three-day visit to Israel last
ween, summarized both the point
of his trip here and the course his
Socialist government can be
expected to follow in the Middle
East. He came to Israel to end
the coolness, often bordering on
hostility, which had chaixter-
ized Franco-Israeli relations
during the administrations of
Charles de Gaulle and his succes-
AT THE same time, he em-
phasized that while France does
not presume to preach to the na-
tions of the Middle East which
must work out their own solu-
tion, he believes the Palestinians
must be given a homeland.
Premier Menachem Begin
offered a lengthy, emotional
response. There is now a "basis
for hope" that under Mitterrand
the strains between France and
Israel would end. "But there are
obstacles chief among them
France's support for a Palestin-
ian state," Begin declared.
He followed that statement
with a bitter, scathing attack on
Mitterrand's Foreign Minister,
Claude Cheysson who accom-
panied the President in Israel, for
having said on recent visits to
Arab countries that he viewed
the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation as the sole legitimate rep-
resentative of the Palestinian
exchange during the packed fes-
tive special session of the Knes-
set echoed the differences ex-
pressed by the two leaders in
their private conversation,
shortly after Mitterrand arrived
in Jerusalem.
Despite claims by Israeli
spokesman that Begin's presen-
tation of Israel's positions had
left the French Leader "very im-
pressed." informed French
sources insisted that Mitterrand,
in his questions and remarks
during their meeting, made clear
to Begin his own belief that the
autonomy proposal for the Pales-
tinians, advanced by Israel, was
"a non-starter" mainly because
the West Bank and Gaza popula-
tions rejected it.
But the sharp differences be-
tween Mitterrand and his host
over the Palestinian issue came
as no surprise to either leader and
were not allowed to mar the
historic significance of the oc-
casion. Mitterrand was the first
French chief of state ever to visit
Israel. Although he has been in
Israel several times in the past, it
was not in the capacity of Presi-
dent of France. He is regarded as
a strong, sincere friend of the
Jewish State.
AS HE declared in his
Knesset speech, "The time has
. 'me after a too-long absence"
for the dialogue to be resumed at
the highest levels. After a period
of "alienation," the two countries
"must start afresh," he said.
Begin concurred, asserting
that Mitterrand's visit marked
an end to the period of "unilateral
love" of France on Israel's part
which was not reciprocated by
Mitterrand spoke to the Knes-
set in French, with simultaneous
translation into Hebrew. To
many observers, his speech re-
called the historic address of the
late Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat to the Knesset in Novem-
ber, 1977. Today, as then, there
was an outpouring of warmth for
the man coupled with deep-seated
reservations over the solutions he
Mitterrand insisted that the
Palestinians must be entitled to
decide their own fate, provided
that they respect the rights of
others (Israel) and abandon
violence in favor of dialogue. He
said France did not intend "to
come in place of the nations in-
volved" in the conflict or to
preach or praise or condemn. But
France is certainly one of those

of the dispute with a view to
being helpful in its solution, he
MITTERRAND stressed his
unwavering friendship to Israel
throughout his career and his
sympathy for its aspirations. He
observed that there was no in-
consistency in his positions. He
supported the Camp David
accords in 1977, opposed the Eu-
ropean Community's Venice
Declaration in 1980 which sought
an "impracticable" solution. In
1981, as President, he was
determined to end any French
compliance with the Arab boy-
cott of Israel. In 1982, he sup-
ports French participation in the
Sinai peacekeeping force.
His visit to Israel was another
link in the change of France's at-
titude, Mitterrand said. Noting
that he spoke "in the same lan-
guage" to all the parties, he
declared: "That is why I am pro-
posing a homeland for the West
Bank and Gaza people Be-
cause they cannot be asked to
forgo that right." He urged, in
effect, mutual recognition by
Israel and the Palestinians. He
added that it was not for him to
determine who represented the
The PLO could hardly demand
a place at the negotiating table
while continuing to oppose
Israel's right to exist, he said. He
spoke against "unilateral ac-
tions" and "predetermina-
tion of borders," an appar-
ent reference to Israel's
annexation of the Golan
Heights last December. He re-
called that when Sadat came to
Jerusalem in 1977, Begin himself
had declared that everything was
MITTERRAND warned that if
the Palestinian problem remained
unresolved, disaster could over-
take the region because the
superpowers naturally looked
toward areas of instability and
strife for opportunities to wield
their own strength and influence
and could thus trigger a world
With respect to Jerusalem, the
French President noted that in
Hebrew the name meant city of
His hope, he said, was that
"one day all disunited brothers
will come together in this city."
Me closed his address in Hebrew,
wishing long life to Israel and all
nations of the area, and
Begin opened his response
speaking in Hebrew which was
translated into French with a
lengthy discourse on the Dreyfus
affair which, he said came to be
regarded by Jews and Zionists as
an epic struggle between the
forces of good and evil in France.
Had Mitterrand been alive then,
he would surely have "marched
alongside Zola and Clemenceau"
in that fight.
He traced the ups and downs of
French-Jewish relationships,
dwelling on the "black days" of
the Vichy regime during World
War II and the prolonged freeze
that followed the Sue-Day War.

Now there is "a basis for hope"
that under Mitterrand "the situ-
ation will be fundamentally
changed," for he was a longtime
friend, "and he will surely strive
for a renewal of the friendship
and alliance," Begin said.
BUT THE Israeli dwelt at
length on the "obstacle"
French support for a Palestinian
state and passionately
defended Israel's offer of
autonomy to the Palestinians
which Mitterrand had character-
ized as a dead end.
"I ask, what is wrong with the
proposal for full autonomy?" Be-
gin said. He enumerated the
areas of civic responsibility which
the Israeli plan would confer on
the Palestinians of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. Under this
plan, he declared, they would en-
joy self-rule such as they never
had under Turkish, British, Jor-
danian or Egyptian governance.
He warned that a Palestinian
state posed a mortal danger "to
our existence" as it would be a
Soviet satellite with Russian
cannons and rockets in posses-
sion of the PLO. "Will France,
champion of justice, support this
proposal that threatens our eli-
mination'.'' Begin asked.
HE MAINTAINED that there
was neither "justice nor sym-
metry" in the idea that the Pales-
tinians should have a state be-
cause the Jews have one. There
are 21 sovereign Arab states over
12 million square kilometers. "Do
we need a 22nd that will seek to
spill our blood day and night?"
he thundered.
Begin said he was deliberately
asking rhetorical questions
which, he hoped, would "echo in
the French Parliament, in the
media, in the press and in the
Klysee Palance, residence of our
dear lriend. President Francois
Mitterrand." The Premier added
that "our taith is that justice will
triumph'' and the "obstacles will
be removed Irom the friendship
between France and Israel that is
so very dear to us."
Also responding to Mitterrand
in the Knesset was Shimon Peres
leader of the opposition Labor
Alignment, a close friend of the
French President and a comradtr
in the Socialist Internationa) "*"
Mitterrand, Peres said, was not
locked into any particular
solution for the Middle East and
knew, morover, that a one-step
solution was unrealistic.
THERE WERE differences, of
course, Peres acknowledged, over
the PLO, for example, which the
Labor leader called a disaster for
the Palestinians themselves. But
these differences need not cause
"a short-circuit in the dialogue"
with Mitterrand, a dialogue
which Israeli Socialists have par-
ticipated in for years, he said.
Peres outlined the Labor
Party's program, which include^.
a desire not to rule over another"**
nation and not to evolve into a
binational state which annexa-
tion would lead to.
"Tell your people," Peres said
addressing Mitterrand, "that we
are by no means indifferent to the
fate of the Palestinians But
they, too, must find an honorable
compromise ..." He urged the
Jordanians and the West Bank, -
and Gaza inhabitants to join the
peace talks. He said Mitterrand's'
visit, hopefully, would open a
"new page" in France's relation-
ship with Israel. It is no ordinary
diplomatic act but perhaps "a re-
turn to the golden days," Peres
