government and military officials
throughout the trip.
The entire country will be seen
from the Negev to the Allenby
Bridge and Jerico to the Good
Fence on the Lebanese border.
Highlights of the Mission will be

In Israel's Eye
Reagan Optimistic that Progress
Toward Autonomy Will Take Place
The Keagan Administration's
public position toward the recent
violence on the West Bank was
reiterated by President Reagan
at his nationally televised press
conference at the White House.
Asked if the clashes on the West
Bank would "destroy progress"
toward autonomy, tne rreeident
r said, "lam hopeful it won't."
Reagan gave as the reason for
his optimism that "1 have the
pledge of my friend (Premier)
Menachem Begin and of Presi-
dent (llosni) Mubarak that they
are going forward with the
Iramework of the Camp David
agreement to resolve all these
other problems. I'm hopeful that
we will see more progress on
these talks alter Apr. 25 when the
transfer of Sinai comes."
that the Camp David agreement
comes within UN Security Coun-
cil Resolutions 242 and 338.
"They (the Israelis) have, as I
say, pledged to me that they are
going to abide by that," he said.
In his brief remarks on the
W ml Hank. Reagan seemed to go
out of his way to explain the Is-
raeli position. He noted that "Is-
rael claims" it removed some of
the West Bank mayors because
the Israelis "believe" that these
mayors "have now become part
of the more radical PLO wing."
Reagan mistakenly said the
mayors had been appointed by
Israel when actually they were
elected. Israel removed three
mayors from office on grounds
that they were agents of the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization
who incited violence on the West
Bank and because they refused to
cooperate with the civilian regime
Israel set up in the territory.
Israel's dissatisfaction
with Egypt seemed to grow
stronger with several senior
ministers issuing sharp
public warnings and
criticisms and some Herat
politicians openly urging a
postponement of the final
Sinai withdrawal on Apr.
These developments came as
U.S. Deputy Secretary of State
Walter Stoessel prepared for a
diplomatic rescue mission to
Israel and Egypt. Designed to
patch up the disputes between
the two countries before the
withdrawal deadline, Stoessel ar-
rived in Israel Wednesday night
and met with Premier Mengchem
Begin Thursday.
REGARDING the other cur-
rent crisis, over the situation in
the north, tension appeared to
lessen somewhat following Be-
gin's assurance to U.S. Ambas-
sador Samuel Lewis that the
Israel government had not decid-
ed to go into Lebanon "in any
way shape or form." Lewis re-
peated this assurance to news-
men, and Begin himself reassert-
ed it at a meeting with visiting
U.S. Congressmen.
Jitters Spread as Apr. 25
Sinai Withdrawal Nears
m me same tune, however,
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon
and other ministers warned pub-
licly today that the government
would fulfill "its duty to defend
the citizens of Israel" and would
strike at the Palestine Liberation
Organization "when and how it
sees fits"
Sharon made those remarks at
a convention of "Young Herut"
in Jerusalem and Trade Minister
Gideon Patt echoed them while
visiting a factory in the northern
kibbutz of Hanita.
AS REGARDS Egypt, of-
ficials here still steer clear of the
word "crisis" in describing the
present situation. But they do
speak of a "crisis of confidence,"
and are united in their insistence
that Egypt must respond to a
string of Israeli complaints be-
fore the Sinai withdrawal dead-
line is at hand.
Begin remarked to the U.S.
Congressmen that while Israel's
compliance with the terms of the
peace treaty is "scrupulous"
Egypt's is sometimes not so.
Gen. Sharon
Both Begin and Shamir, in their
meetings with the Congressmen,
a delegation of the House Armed
Services Committee, expressed
the hope the problems could be
The U.S. diplomatic effort to
shore up the peace treaty and see
it safely through the Apr. 25
deadline got under way when
Assistant Secretary of State
Nicholas Velio tee met for several
hours with Israel's top leaders.
Carrington Resignation Satisfying
There has been no offici-
al reaction here to the res-
ignation of British Foreign
Secretary Lord Carrington
amidst the crisis between
Britain and Argentina over
the Falkland Islands. How-
ever, few Israelis expressed
regret over Carrington's
fall, as he was never re-
garded as a friend of Israel.
His last major political mission
was his visit to Israel, during
which both he and the Israeli
officials he met with agreed that
they had little to agree on regard-
ing the Middle East situation.
Nevertheless, Carrington's visit
was described as a new leaf in the
relatively cool relations between
Britain and Israel. A tentative
dialogue had begun, and Israeli
officials said, barely hiding their
grins, that it was too bad he had
to resign now.
Shortly before it was learned
here of Carrington's resignation.
Premier Menachem Begin was
still criticizing him. In a speech in
Dimona, Begin recalled that Car-
rington last week had asked that
Israel make concessions for an
independent Palestinian state
alongside Israel.
WHILE ISRAEL had made it
clear to the British diplomat that
such a state would endanger the

Filling in Background
Violence Erupts in Wake of Shoot-Out
Violence erupted anew
on the West Bank, in East
Jerusalem and the Gaza
strip this week in the after-
math of the shooting on the
Temple Mount Sunday
morning. The Arab popula-
tion observed a general
strike to protest the killing
of two Arabs and the
wounding of more than a
dozen others by a man ten-
tatively identified as Allan
Harry Goodman, an
American-Jewish immi-
grant serving in the Israel
army reserve.
Marches and demonstrations
in the occupied territories es-
calated into clashes with Israeli
security forces. At tout a doxen
Arabs were injured as troops and
border police fired weapons and
used tear gas to disperse rioters
in villages, towns and refugee
SIX ISRAELIS and four tour-
ists were hurt in stone-throwing
incidents Monday morning. An
NBC television cameraman re-
ceived a bullet would in the toft
shoulder. It wu unclear whether
it wu a live bullet or a cartridge
used to propell a tear-gas
canister. He wu treated at a
hospital and released.
Sixteen persona were reported
hospitalized for injuries received
in disturbances in East Jeru-
salem. An Israeli woman and her
two-year-old son were on the
critical list for head wounds suf-
fered when a bus waa stoned near
the Jewish suburb of Neve
The general strike, called by
the Moslem Supreme Council in
East Jerusalem Sunday, wu al-
most total there and in the terri-
tories. Schools and shops were
closed, and public transportation
wu at a standstill. The Council,
the supreme religious authority
of Palestinian Arabs, renewed its
call for a week-long strike. In ef-
fect it rejected the Israel govern-
ment's expressions of regret over
the shooting and the govern-
ment's contention that the killer
wu demented.
WHILE THE government
condemned the shooting, it ac-
cused the Council of exploiting
the incident for political pur-
poses. A statement issued by the
Prime Ministers Office described
the perpetrator as "mentally 01"
and expressed pain over "the ter-
rible sacrilege and the loss of
At the same time, it cautioned
the Moslem religious body
against "spreading a blood libel."
The statement observed that the
Council should "remember that

seini, Hitler's agent, an gone
never to return."

Angered by Arson
U.S. Media Distorts Druze Protests
Over Israeli Annexation
I(JTA) An Israeli Druze
[member of the Knesset told
la meeting of the communi-
ty Relations Committee of
Jewish Federation Council
of Greater Los Angeles that
the media in the U.S. has
exaggerated and distorted
Druze protests over Israeli
annexation of the Golan
| Heights.
Zeidan Atashi, who has acted
as an unofficial mediator between
the Golan Druze and the Israel
Government, said that only
about 9,000 Druze live in the
Golan as compared to some
45,000 living in the rest of Israel.
And, of that number, he observ-
ed, a "silent majority" do not
support the general strike now in
its eighth week in the area to pro-
test annexation.
ATASHI SAID that media
distortions make it seem as
though the strike action has
unanimous support, not only in
AJC Pledged to Cooperate
in Suit of Ocean Club
American Jewish Commit -
has pledged that it will
cooperate "in every way
>ssible" with State At-
torney General Robert
torams in his current suit
igainst the Ocean Club in
Atlantic Beach "for main-
taining a policy of refusing
admit Jewish persons,
either as members or as
jests of members."
The action, brought in the
Federal District Court in Brook
tyn against the Nassau County
I south shore beach club, followed
a charge by Dr. William Bell, a
former club member who is a co-
plaintiff in the suit, that last
summer the club manager re-
nuked him for taking four Jewish
friends to the club and warned
him against inviting Jews again.
Bell thereupon resigned from the
COMMENTING on the case,
ranklin Ornstein, chairman of
t American Jewish Commit-
^s National Committee on
oocjaj Discrimination, stated:
The problem of social dis-
crimination is pervasive through-
out our society. It eats at the
very roots of a democratic society
and can no longer be tolerated."
Ornstein recalled that AJC had
'ng been active in efforts to
eradicate social discrimination
ana that it was currently coop-
erating with the American Bar
Association to that end, in aup-
Port of legislation that would bar
c'us which receive substantial
Jsiness-related income from dis-
imination. He expressed the
Vommittee's determination "to
Join forces with all those who
recognize that social club dis-
crimination is one of the last
JJ**" of institutionaUMd
| bigotry m American society."
The Attorney General suit
contends that the Ocean Club is
not a private club entitled to
exemption from anti-discrimina-
tion laws because some of its
facilities, such as tennis courts,
are open to the public for pay-
L.I. Police Say Jews
Fail to Press Charges
COMMACK, N.Y. Police in
Suffolk County, which is believed
to have the nation's highest
arrest rate of anti-Semitic van-
dals, say they are being ham-
pered by Jews who refuse to
press charges, it was reported
this week by the Jewish World of
Long Islan
the Golan, but among the Druze
in the rest of Israel. This, he said,
is simply not true.
"The Druze in the Golan have
had several concerns regarding
annexation. In my role as unof-
ficial mediator I have attempted
to answer their questions,"
Atashi said, "They were chiefly
concerned about the draft, about
whether Israeli citizenship would
be imposed and whether their
land would be confiscated."
Atashi met with government
officials and then with Golan
Druze political and religious lea-
ders. He reassured them that
there will be no imposition of
Israeli citizenship and that their
young people will not be subject
to the draft. The land issue, how-
ever, proved a bit difficult for him
to answer.
"THE MAJOR problem with
land holdings in the area is that
after the 1967 War, the Druze ac-
quired the and without title.
They just settled where they
wanted and began to cultivate it.
This creates some problems and I
could not provide area leaders
with any firm answer about what
will happen to their land," Atashi
He reassured the audience that
Druze Arabs in Israel remain loy-
al to the country, are proud to be
Israeli citizens and serve in the
army. He said his goal during his
visit to the U.S. is to correct the
false impression that the U.S.
media has conveyed about the
Representatives of the

woman and injured several

An anonymous telephone caller
claiming to speak for the Jewish
Defense League told local news
media here that the JDL was re-
sponsible for the fire. The caller
claimed the JDL "discovered"
that the building housed the
"secret headquarters" of the
Palestine liberation Organiza-
tion. Another caller later told lo-
cal news media he was a repre-
sentative of the Lohame Herut
Israel, or Freedom Fighters for
Israel, and claimed they were re-
THE BLAZE started on the
ground floor of the building at
160 Atlantic Avenue at Clinton
Street in the Tripoli restaurant,
an Arab-owned establishment
specializing in Middle Eastern
cuisine. It spread through the
five-story structure to the
apartment upstairs killing the
victim on the fourth floor. The
FBI terrorist task force is in-
vestigating the fire.
The statement issued by
Brooklyn Jewish representatives
said: "Jews of Brooklyn Heights,
Cobble Hill and Park Slope have
lone cherished the peaceful co-ex-
istence of the Arab and Jewish
communities in this neighbor-
hood... We have lived in a spirit of
peace and mutual respect, which
we hope will continue."
The statement was signed by
representatives of the Kane
Street Synagogue, Congregation
Mount Sinai, the Brooklyn
Heights Synagogue, the Park
Slope Jewish Center and the Gar-
field Temple.
ONE SIGNATOR of the state-
ment, Rabbi David Glazer of the
Brooklyn Heights Synagogue,
said in a telephone interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the statement was released
as an expression of "concern of
neighbors toward each other."
He stressed that Jews in his area
are "seeking a peaceful co-exis-
tence with their Arab neighbors."
He added:"We are not in Golan
or in Negev."
At the same time, the Jewish
Community Relations Council
(JCRC) of New York said in a
statement that they were "ap-
palled by the "apparent act of ar-
son" at the restaurant, adding
that "our society has no place for
terrorism of any kind." They
called for the swift prosecution to
the full extent of the law the indi-
viduals or groups responsible for
the act.
The JDL has denied emphati-
cally that it was responsible for
the fire. JDL national chairman,
Meir Jolovitz, said the fire "was
not a JDL action," nor was it
"sanctioned by the JDL." He
said he knew nothing of the claim
that the restaurant was a fron for
the headquarters of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Israel Adds Signature To
Treaty to Protect Inland Sea
was among 16 nations around the
Mediterranean basin to approve a
treaty protecting the ecological
integrity of the inland sea and
sites of archaeological or
historical nature on its shores or
Under the treaty, the fifth to
be approved by the Mediterrane-
an countries in the past six years,
the participating governments
will establish about 100 protected
zones to preserve endangered
species such as monk seals, sea
turtles and pelicans. Others
would serve as habitats for
migratory birds or combine
public beaches with nearby
archaeological or historical sites.
SPECIAL protected zones will
be created for underwater archae-
ological remnants such as sunken
Phoenician ships and still others
will be earmarked as breeding
grounds for exploitable fish and
shell fish. They would offer scien-
tists research "sanctuaries" and
protect "genetic diversity."
The Mediterranean, like most
busy waterways bounded by
heavily populated countries, has
suffered pollution in recent
decades. Scientists attending a
conference held here in connec-
tion with the treaty said, "While
it is too early to claim that the
Mediterranean has been saved, it
is not getting sicker and the
prognosis is good." An Israeli
delegation participated in the

Turn of the Screw l
Whether he is called Elliot Guttman or Allan
Harry Goodman, his impact on history will be the
same. The crazed American Jew who staged an O.K.
Corral shoot-out at Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock on
has heightened international tensions be-
tween Israel and Lebanon, and tensions at home be-
tween the government and citizens on the West Bank
and in Gaza.
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem is correct in
his fear that there are many who will use the sense-
less shoot-out to blame Israel. In fact, the PLO's
Yasir Arafat has already done so.
What's in a name? In Goodman's, plenty. He
has burst upon the scene of current Middle East ten-
sions at a time when the area can hardly stand one
more turn of the screw. It is doubtful that his shoot-
out was that one more fateful turn. But it comes unJ
comfortably close.
The charity with which John Hinckley has been
treated, the alleged would-be assassin of President
Reagan last year, is no model by which the enemies
of Israel will measure and restrain their feelings of
anguish that the third most important shrine in the i
world of Islam was violated. And that in the process
Arabs were killed and wounded.
Coalition to Stop Abandonment
Of Israel Will Rally in D.C.
A newly formed broad-
based coalition of Jews and
Christians, "The Coalition
to Stop the Abandonment
of Israel" is sponsoring a
rally in Washington on
Apr. 25 to express its con-
cern with the present
course of the Reagan Ad-
ministration's Middle East
policies, it was announced
here by Peter Goldman,
spokesman for the Coali-
tion. I
The rally, which will take place
in Lafayette Park, opposite the
White House, is expected to at-
tract thousands of people from
the mid-Atlantic region, accord-
ing to Goldman.
"THE RALLY is both a pro-
test against the Administration's
policies and an appeal to the
President to reaffirm and imple-
ment his pledges and principles
in support of the State of Israel,"
Goldman said. "While we are
rallying for Israel, we are also
rallying for the conscience of
America. While we are marching
for a secure Israel, we are also j
marching for a secure America, I
since these two concepts are in-
extricably linked."
The Rev. Isaac Rottenberg,
chairman of the National Chris-
tian Leadership Conference for
Israel, one of the sponsoring
groups, said "the minds and
hearts of many Christians are
going out to the State of Israel as
it continues to make many sacri-
fices for peace."
TWO WARS have been filling
the columns of the press and air-
time on television for several
weeks now, although at least as
of this writing, not a shot has yet
been fired.
All that may be changed by
now, but only a few days ago, the
generals and admirals were edi-
tors and anchormen, glamorous
stars everyone of them, with too
much power derived from their
drunken view developed over the
years into today's frightening
media truth that, to report the
news, and even to comment on it,
is in the end to make it.
OP COURSE, by the time
this will be read. Great
Britain may, indeed, be engaged
in a shooting war with Argentina
even if, quite frankly, I doubt it.
And Israel may have invaded Le-
banon, as we have been repeated-
y told is "imminent," even if,
.juite frankly, I doubt that too.
But when the news potentates
cum generals and admirals of-
ered their military scenarios for
struggle over the Falkland
'elands, replete with warship and
varplane silhouettes, there was
at least reason for their
speculation. Britain was in fact
sending an armada into the
South Atlantic.
There was no such equivalent,
however, in the Middle East. The
Israelis have been making mut-
tering noises aplenty for some-
time now about Palestinian vio-
lations of the ceasefire agreement
arranged last summer. And there
is no doubt that some of their
generals and government offic-
ials, not a single one of them a
media military minion, have
joined the muttering* with threa-
tening launguage of their own,
although somewhat less so than
that of the journalists.'
THE REST, including learned
and scholarly treatise* in the
American press on'Israeli troop
movements, has been pure specu-
lation crowned by tear-stained
headlines for the Palestinian
cause, for example, "Israeli
Buildup Scares Lebanese."
It doesn't seem to scare the
Lebanese enough to make peace
among themselves and send the
PLO and the Syrians packing.
Nor does it move the pencil-push
imr authors of these scareiines, in
their august eminence, to write
equivalent tales about, say, the
assassination of Israeli diplomats
by the Palestinians, or other such
events that might well justify
Lebanese fears of a retaliatory
strike against them. Such stories,
of course, are buried.
So that the two wars fought in
the media before a single shot
was fired in either one were, to
use a Haigism, staged by "dup-
licitious bastards" with a cause
of their own utterly unrelated to
human events, the Israeli "inva-
sion" especially so, not only be-
cause nothing had yet occurred,
but because these mendacious
mamzerim were writing about an
Israel that can not please them
these days under any circum-
stances, no matter what they do.
Or do not do.
SHOULD THE "invasion" not
have taken place by now, I can
only fear for the Israelis on
another score. Having inspired
the ire of the Nostradamus media
moguls, they may be doubly pun-
ished in the weeks to come for
showing the war that fizzled to be
a twice-told delusion.
I do not write these angry
things merely to air my own feel-
ings, but rather as a warning
of things to come. The Americar
Jewish community, presumabl)
the most sophisticated and most
powerful in the world, lives in the
glow of its Golden Age as if then
were no tomorrow.
The fact is that tomorrow is al-
ready here. The glow is consider-
ably diminished, and the Golden
Age has long since regressed to
the baser metals of ancient al-
chemy. American Jews have lost
the grace of the public opinion
their ignorant and bigoted
enemies accuse them of controll-
WORSE, they have lost the
empathic response of the Chris-
tian community, whose sense and
sensibility they continue to
drown with the treacle of holo-
caustism. The Christian com-
munity has gone about as far as
it can be expected to go in its mea
culpa. Given the bloody history
of Christianity, the holocaustic
mea culpa was a breathtaking a-
chievement all of its own. But we
must come to the shock of recog-
nition that there is no more of
this sweet feeling remaining)
In tact, the reserves of the
American Jewish libido, such as
they are, must now be harnessed
for the new Holocaust to come.
We are already in the midst of it.
Instead of beating the old, dead
Hitlerian horse, we must fore-
arm ourselves against the new
Hitlers, who will not be pleased
until Israel sinks into the sea,
and Yasir Arafat plants his Mus-
covite PLO flag on the banks of
the River Jordan. And who will,
thereafter, take out after the rest
of us who live me-chuU I'aretz.
What American Jew should
need reminding of the punishing
debate over the AWACS, when
all the President's men proposed
the battle as a choice between
Begin and Reagan?
should have to be prodded to re-
call the television ferret, Mike
Wallace, on "60 Minutes" the
other week in an obsequious in-
terview with Vanessa Redgrave,
who in her political schizophre-
nia was given the CBS stage on
which to fulminate not only for
the Palestinians but against
American Jews as if they were
alone in getting her fired from a
Boston Symphony contract?
What American Jew does not
flinch over the Sunday headlines
imaging the "Israeli buildup"
that "scares" poor Lebanon, with
its clear inference that it's okay
for Britain to send an armada
8,000 miles from home to defend
its "empire," but it's not okay for
Israel to defend its lifeblood right
in its own backyard as that life-
blood pours increasingly from
Arab bullets and handgrenades
as far away as in Vienna and
Even if, as of Sunday, there
was no "invasion" yet, the media
had their day nevertheless, with
huge headlines announcing the
tale of a crazed American Jew
and his pistol-packing at Jerusa-
lem's Dome of the Rock. (Did not
the assassination of Yaacov Bar-
Simantov in Paris deserve equal
treatment which, of course, it
universally failed to receive?) In
either case, we lose. Jews are
monsters all, be they in Israel or
in the U.S.
Increasingly, American Jews
find themselves diminished and
reduced to impotence at home,
with charges of double allegiance
against them more and more fra-
grancing the very air the nation
breathes. Ronald Reagan let ihe
stench loose when he crammed
the AWACS deal down the co-
wardly throats of a turncoat Con-
gress and then dared at a gold
medal ceremony in his honor at a
dinner of the National Conference
of Christians and Jews to talk
about the American need for
pluralism and manifold political
points of view.
INCREASINGLY, Israel finds .
itself similarly diminished and*"*
reduced to impotence at home, its
daring military maneuvering of
the past, a hallmark of its survi-
val, now held in check and im-
prisoned by Petangon and State
Department planners so that Is-
raelis are no longer free to act in
their own behalf.
And so, our Armageddon
comes again. And we do nothing
to launch the power we suppose
we still have in our Golden Age
to proclaim once and for all who
the real monsters are.

The tragedy of the Middle East
is not that one deranged Ameri-
can Jew invaded the Mosque of
Omar and took the lives of two
innocent Arabs, reprehensible
and regrettable as this incident
is. The tragedy of the Middle
East is the reaction of Arab gov-
ernments and spokesmen are
supposedly sane. How can any
intelligent person, even the
evowed enemies of Israel,
seriously believe that Alan Good-
man was an official agent of the
Israeli Government? It is this
hysterical, almost pathological
reaction, that deeply disturbs me.
Reality and politics and halluci-
nation seem to go hand in hand
among the opinion makers in the
major Arab capitols.
I can never allow myself to for-
get that there is a monument at
the Town Square of El Arish, the
major Egyptian city in the Sinai,
that proclaims the glorious
victory of the Arabs in the 1967
Six Day War. In the face of his-
torical reality. that belief
presents a major stumbling block
to all rational people How does
one deal with a nation or a people
that reflects what must be char-
acterized by the rational Western
mind as irrational behavior?
I personally am tired of read-
ing about the plight of the poor
PaJestineans. I am tired of seeing
rioting Arabs on my television
screen. I am tired of the-over-em-
phasis of the world press on what
is almost a non-problem. The Is-
raeli occupation of the West
Bank, if you choose to character-
ize it as an occupation, will go
down in history as the most
benign and human occupation in
the history of military
To describe it as anything else,
would be to slip into the hysteria
and fantasy of the Arab mind.
I pass along the following
article concerning the treatment
that Jews have received from
within Arab lands as a contrast
to what we are hearing today in
the media. The following article
was written by Judy Krausz and
appeared in a magazine called the
Record, which is published by the
Women's Division of the United
Jewish Appeal. It is a most
touching and enlightening ar-
"In 1968, on my son Rafi's
second birthday, the Iraqi police
took my husband Charles from
his office and arrested him. Two
and a half months later, in Jan-
uary 1969, he was executed al-
though there was no evidence of
any crime. The truth is that
Charles was viciously tortured
and then murdered because be
was a Jew."

Horesh. 38, born in Baghdad,
who, with her two small children,
managed a daring escape from
Iraq and arrived in Israel in 1971.
Soft-spoken, gracious and arti-
culate, Simha today is a volun-
teer lecturer for the World Orga-
nization of Jews from Arab
Lands (WOJAC). whose goal is
to publicize certain facts that
have been systematically hidden
and-or denied by Arab nations.
Since 1948, 840,000 Jews in Arab
lands have been forced to leave
their homes, their property and
their possessions to become refu-
gees. Of this number, 600,000
came to Israel, where they were
given automatic citizenship and
the possiblity to resettle and re-
habilitate themselves.
"An almost equal number of
Palestinians left Israel during
this same period," Simha Horesh
states emphatically. "There was
actually an exchange of popula-
tions. But none of the Arab
states assisted the Palestinian
refugees, except to supply then
with arms and channel theii
hatred toward Israel. They wen
put in refugee camps instead.
Thirty-three years have passed
and they are still considered
refugees. If Israel, with so few re-
sources, could welcome and
absorb so many newcomers, why
is it such a problem for the rich
and sparsely populated Arab na-
tions to absorb the Palestin-
Simha Horesh speaks in fluent,
British-accented English, which
she learned, along with French,
at the "Alliance" a Jewish
school in Baghdad. Her Hebrew,
also fluent, is the language of her
home in Tel Aviv where she lives
with ther son Rafi, now 15, and
Tikva (hope), 12V,. born after her
father was executed.
The horrible events that have
taken place in the life of Simha
Horesh are painfully etched in
her mind, never to be forgotten: |
the bodies of the "Zionist spies"
murdered along with her husband I
hanging in Baghdad's central I
plaza; the incited Arab popula-
tion dancing and singing around
the bodies in the plaza and in
front of her home; her aborted
attempt to leave Iraq resulting in
her imprisonment with her two
babies; and her sucessful escape.
"The smugglers who were in-
volved in getting me to the
border were astonished that a
woman would be traveling
alone," she recalls. "If I had been
caught, they would have killed
me and the children. But I had
made my decision: better that
end that the kind of life we were
Simha has devoted much of the
past 10 years to speaking in
behalf of Jews in Arab lands. In
1973, when Iraq renewed persec-
ution and arrests of its small
number of remaining Jews, in-
cluding the massacre of a whole
family, she and two other former
Iraqis were sent by Israel's For-
eign Office on a speaking mission
to the U.S., England and France
to arouse public concern. "We
discovered that the Iraqi govern-
ment was not indifferent to world
opinion," she notes tersely.
Shortly thereafter, Iraqi anti-
Jewish activity was relaxed and
many Jews were able to leave.
With the establishment of
WOJAC in 1975. Simha began to
lecture extensively to foreign and
Israeli groups, while at the same
time earning a degree at Tel Aviv
University in Middle East
studies and linguistics, and
working for a travel agency. In
the summer of 1980 she was an
Israeli delegate to the turbulent
UN Women's Conference in Cop-
enhagen where, after consider-
able pressure exerted by sym-
pathetic American delegates, she
was allocated two minutes of
speaking time at a Forum session
on refugees.
The scenario was dramatic; the
results expected. "You've been
hearing a great deal about the so-
called Israeli atrocities against
the Palestinians," she said at the
Forum. "It's time you heard
about the atrocities committed
by the Arab countries against the
Jews," Simha then told her story
briefly, and added, "Israel did for
me what the Arab countries have
refused to do for the Palestin-
Simha concludes her story.
"For a moment there was total
silence. The Arab delegates were
caught off guard by my
aggressive presentation. But
then they retorted. Liar, and the
pandemonium that characterized
the Conference broke out again "
Now beginning a master's pro-
gram in political science, Simha
Horesh brings a keen personal as
well as academic perspective to
Middle East politics and the
historic role of the Jews there,
which in Iraq stretched uninter-
ruptedly over 2,500 years.
As for the future, Simha's first
priority is her children. "They
have a good life here." Her eyes
are radiant with pride. Although
Simha has been a citizen of Israel
for more than 10 years now, she
says simply: "Every time I
think of Israel, I am over-

Britain's New
Foreign Secretary
Francis Pym
LONDON (JTA) Francis Pym, Britain's new
Foreign Secretary, is almost an unknown quantity in
foreign affairs. A middle of the road conservative, 61-year-
old Pym has been described as a man who plays his cards
so close to his chest that he holds them inside his vest.
Apart from a spell as shadow Foreign Secretary and
his period as Defense Secretary earlier in the present gov-
ernment, his career since becoming a member of Parlia-
ment 21 years ago has revolved mainly around domestic
and parliamentary affairs.
NEVERTHELESS, he could differ sharply from his
predecessor, Lord Carrington, if only because his first
task will be to extricate Britain from the mess for which
Carrington has acknowledged responsibility.
Initially, therefore, Pym will have to look after
Britain's immediate interests rather than seek to play the
role of global statesmen to which Carrington aspired.
He could also try to sort out some of the traditional
attitudes inside the Foreign Office, including those on the
Middle East with which Carrington was closely associ-
PYM HAS been a passive member of the Conser-
vative Friends of Israel parliamentary group and may
therefore be less identified with the Foreign Office's pro-
Arab slant.
However, it should be stressed that the two other
junior ministers who resigned together with Carrington
do not include Douglas Hurd, Minister of State in charge
of Middle East affairs.

saw; 12th Century Polish coinage

record books from the 17th and
18th Centuries; printed books;
19th and 20th Century paintings
of Jewish content; clothing;
embroideries; and gold and silver
ritual objects.
The exhibition's text panels
will introduce and discuss such
concepts as the Yeshivot: great
centers of learning; the Jew as
genre subject in 19th Century
Polish painting; anti-Semitism in
the 19th Century, and the immi-
gration of Jews to the United
States; the Jew as artist and
writer in Poland; and the Holo-
sored by the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations under the
terms of a special cultural ex-
change agreement with the Uni-
versity of Warsaw. Following its
opening engagement at The
Jewish Museum, the exhibition
will travel to the Hebrew Union
College Skirball Museum in Los
Angeles and the Walters Art
Gallery in Baltimore, after which
it is scheduled to be returned for
a special exhibition in Warsaw.
Portions of the exhibition were
seen in a preview exhibition at
the Knoedler Gallery in New
York City this past December.
Summing up the importance
and scope of the exhibition, guest
curator Cissy Grossman said,
"This exhibition of material on
loan from Poland dramatically
illustrates the profound aesthetic
and spiritual sensibilities of
different communities and the
range of their concerns, as well as
the awesome longevity of the
Jewish experience in Poland.
The rediscovery of these ob-
jects and the opportunity to ex-
' perience them has been an ex-
citing one for us that we hope the
visitor will share."

Nablus, an Arab youth was

MEANWHILE, police con-
tinued to investigate the back-
ground of the man apprehended
in the Temple Mount shooting.
After some initial confusion, his
name was given as Allan Harry
Goodman, 38, originally from
New Jersey. The first police re-
ports had identified him as Elliot
Guttman, 30. According to police
he immigrated to Israel recently,
was enlisted in an army reserve
training program for older immi-
grants and was on active duty.
He used an Israel-army issue
American M-16 automatic rifle in
his shooting spree.
The police reportedly have
established that Goodman had no
connection with the extremist
Kach faction headed by Rabbi
Meir Kahane, founder of the Jew-
ish Defense League. A Kach
spokesman in Jerusalem denied
the group had any knowledge of
Goodman and said Kach deplored
his act.
But in New York, Kahane told
a press conference that Kach
would provide a lawyer for the
accused man and said it was
"outrageous that people are
throwing someone who is Jewish
to the dogs." According to
Kahane, Goodman had visited
Kach headquarters in Jerusalem
several times to pick up leaflets.

be in Europe. Kol Israel Radio

the accused man, they reportedly

that the attacks on the Temple
Mount was premeditated. Eleven
of the wounded remained hos-

groups. In 91 of the 110 Byelo-
Russian towns and villages where
Jews lived, they did resist. There
were 25,000 Jewish partisans,
most of whom perished. There
were 6,000 Jews in Tito's army.
In fact, the very first group Tito
organized included 13 fighters
from Macedonian Zionist groups.
Bauer did not spare his audi-
ence the other bitterly tragic side
the Jewish traitors: the ghetto
police, capos in the death camps,
even Jewish hangmen. Among
them were young and old, men
and women, religious and non-
religious, intellectuals and

joy Beth Steinberg
huda Bauer, director of He-
brew University's presti-
gious Institute of Contem-
porary Jewry, greatly ad-
mires Simon Wiesenthal's
famed efforts to apprehend
Nazi murderers, but he
flatly rejects his view that,
as Jews, we should remind
the world that 11 million
people were murdered by
the Nazis, including five
million non-Jewish Chris-
On the contrary, Bauer said in
a wide-ranging presentation at a
Northeastern Illinois University
symposium on teaching the
Holocaust, the number of non-
Jews who were killed in the con-
centration camps was a
maximum of 750,000. However,
Bauer added, the Nazis actually
annihilated 26 million to 28 mil-
lion non-Jewish Europeans
through mass murder, slave
labor, starvation, and starvation-
related disease.
THIS, he said, included prac-
tically all Polish intellectuals
among the three million Polish
non-Jews killed, Czechs, Byelo-
Russians, and other Eastern
Europeans. Byelo-Russians sus-
spected as partisans were burned
alive by the thousands in Russian
Orthodox churches.
All such groups were regarded
by Hitler as sub-humans, and
their extermination or persecu-
tion, according to Bauer, was
truly genocide. The Jews were
not victims of such genocide, but
were the first group in history
so far to experience a Holo-
caust. Hitler's racial policy
placed Jews not in the category
of sub-humans (like Slavs), but
as the non-human embodiment of
complete evil, who were trying to
take over the entire world
through their satanic machina-
To exterminate this evil was
the "holy mission of the German
people, as leaden of the pure and
exalted Aryan race. Thus it was
possible for members of the SS to
murder hundreds of Jews and
come home at night as
"Christian" husbands and
mation from a previously-un-
known 1942 survey of the Ger-
man people on the still debated
question: "Did the German peo-
ple know what happened to the
Jews?" A German anti-Nazi
managed to ask this question of
hundreds of his fellow-citizens.
While he travelled extensively
throughout the country, he deli-
berately made acquaintances,
and then casually asked what
they had heard about the fate of
Jews from their cities, towns or
villages. Eighty percent re-
sponded that they had heard that
Jews had been killed. Bauer
asked: If 80 percent admitted
they knew, didn't the other 20
percent have the same guilty
Bauer addressed directly the
agonizing issue of why and how
Jews submitted to the Nazis. He
rejected unequivocally the ex-
treme positions that Jews went
like sheep to the slaughter, or
that they were all heroes and
HE REMINDED his audience
that Jews were small minorities
in much larger communities, were
not united, had no arms, no
tradition of officer training, and
were psychologically unprepared.
Within months of the Nazis' en-
try into Poland, most of the Jew-
ish population was starving, de-
cimated by typhus, demoralized
with no opportunity for resis-
And yet, there waa resistance 1(ianettB stembeixj
- and not just in Warsaw. In 44 Jeanerce Dteniuexy
other ghettos, there ware armed
many examples of the bravery.
In Poland and in jrermanv itself,
Jews were bidden by Christians
throughout the war. The Arch-
bishop of France asked every
priest to save Jews. The Ursuline
Sisters and Benedictine monks
played a key role in rescuing
Jews, as did priests and bishops
in Italy.
The same could not be said of
Pope Pius XII, who never lifted
his voice. Bauer stated that the
Pope's failure to act was clearly
due to his desire to preserve the
Catholic Church at all costs from
attacks by the Nazis.
Bauer praised the accomplish-
ments of the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee in
saving Jews during the Holo-
caust, a fact deeply appreciated
by Jews who had been under the
Nazi yoke. Ironically, Bauer be-
lieves this is not known by most
American Jews who still mis-
takenly assume that little or
nothing was done by any Ameri-
can Jewish organization.
"American Jewry and the Holo-
caust the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee
1939-1946," is a detailed presen-
tation of JDC's global efforts.
The book, based on JDC's
complete files of its wartime
activities, reveals the problems
created by all too limited funds
and initial lack of understanding
by JDC leaders of the depth and
scope of Nazi plans, but has high
praise for JDC's overseas Ameri-
can staff and its European staff
most of whom were martyred
by the Nazis.
It was the JDC that financed
the revolt in the Warsaw ghetto
and Raoul Wallenberg's rescue of
Hungarian Jews. Few people are
aware that the JDC constantly
*ent aid to Jews in all the occu-
oied lands.
In the last months of the war,
hrough its Swiss representative,
Saly Mayer, JDC negotiated with
op SS officers the Nazi ransom
>ffer to save Hungarian Jews
with approval and participation
jf the U.S. War Refugee Board,
and which eventually did save
the lives of thousands of Jews in
Hungary and in the death camps.

Bonn Under Increasing Pressure
To Offer Invite to Khadafy
You are the seventh gen-
eration Sabra the ambience
of the world of your fore-
bears, and in which you
also now live, sleep and
breathe is permeated with
the odor of grease paint.
Your father is a famous
actor, and yor uncle is the
star of your country's the-
The time is Independence Eve
just before the eruption of Is-
rael's War of Independence, and
your milieu is the magical domain
of Thespis. The floodlights and
handbills are similar, but the set-
ting, the language and the at-
mosphere are far different from
the safe stages of the Royal
Shakespeare Theatre in London,
the Comedie Francais in Paris
and the Comedia del Arte in
In those cities, danger is con-
fined to the proscenium's make-
believe artistry and its acting-out
of the playwright's script, with
all members of the cast who have
previously expired, restored to
life once the curtain falls.
FOR THIS is the Hebrew Cof-
fee Theatre of Tel Aviv whose
actors play out thier roles on an
open-air arena stage on the banks
of the Yarkon River. On this eve
of Israel's birth, danger is not
limited to the counterfeit locale of.
the play. It is in the air which is
electric with peril. Suddenly, a
gang of Arabs ambushes the star,
and your beloved father, Meir
Teomi, is left as a corpse on the
stage. Unlike other actors, he will
never be able to rise again to take
his curtain call.
This set of circumstances
shaped Oded Teomi's life and
career. He walked the same foot-
light path as did his father and
uncle, and today he has achieved
the pinnacle of Israeli stardom as
a unique three-time winner of
that nation's Harp of David
award, which in the theater of Is-
rael is a combination of both the
Oscar and Tony accolades.
Dr. Aviv Ekrony, director of
the Department of Education and
Culture of the World Zionist
Organization-American Section,
said: "We wanted to bring to
America a foremost Israeli actor
who would demonstrate by his
own superb mastery of his craft,
the fact that our nation though
small in numbers, nevertheless
possesses people whose talent
compares well with the stars of
the best national theatres."
THE CHOICE of Oded Teomi
was an instant one, and with the
co-sponsorship of the cultural
section of the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs of Israel, he has been
brought to the United States for
one-week stints at Jewish Wel-
fare Board affiliated Jewish
Community Centers and YM and
YWHA's in the cities of Balti-
more, Chicago, Memphis, Ten-
nessee, Utica, New York, Ed-
monton, Alberta, Canada and
New York City.
In each of these cities, Teomi
will do a solo performance of
"Signs and Wonders," a one-man
play in which he relates his in-
timately persona] story in
soliloquy and narration. "Sings"
is the result of Teomi's collabora-
tion with the noted Israeli play-
wright, Daniel Horowitz. Teomi
enthralls his audiences with bis
intensely evocative dramatiza-
tion of his true, mystical experi-
ence of an eerie dream in which

his dead father signals to him

Oded Teomi is one of Israel's
best-known actors. He is 44 years
old, with more than 20 years of
experience in the theatre. Today,
he is one of the few permanent
members of the Cameri, Israel's
Chamber Theatre.
TEOMI HAS performed many
varied and wide-ranging roles in
the classics as well as in modern
plays. He is also a director, and
for four years has taught acting
at the Tel Aviv University. He
has appeared in numerous films
and television productions.
He has studied in New York at
the Actors Studio with the late
Lee Strassberg, and has appeared
in television and film productions
with Clare Bloom, Melvyn
Douelas. Anthonv Ouale and
Timothy Bottoms. In "Golda,"
Starring Ingrid Bergman, Teomi
plays General Elazar.
"Signs and Wonders" itself
has been running in Israel for 16
months now and has been widely
acclaimed, filling halls in each
one of its performances.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Labor Urges Gov't. Avoid Lebanon Action :s****
- Three top leaders of the
Labor Party, all former
Chiefs of Staff, warned the
government over the week-
end not to precipitate mili-
tary action against Pales-
tinian forces in Lebanon.
The appeals for restraint, by
former Premier Yitzhak Rabin,
Labor Party Secretary General
Haim Barlev and Gen. Mordechai
Gur, were made against a back-
ground of mounting tension in
northern Israel and widespread
news reports abroad that Israel
was massing troops along the
Lebanese border for a strike
against Palestinian bases in
south Lebanon.
THE CABINET met for more
than six hours as a ministerial
defense committee, the delibera-
tions of which were classified. No
statements were issued and
Cabinet Secretary Dan Meridor
refused to answer reporters'
questions. It is believed the
topics discussed were the situa-
tion in Lebanon, reported new
disputes with Egypt and the fatal
shooting on the Temple Mount in
East Jerusalem Sunday.
Informed sources said U.S.
Ambassador Samuel Lewis
would be calling on Premier
Menachem Begin later. Rabin, in
an interview published in Davar,
urged the government to make
'supreme efforts" to preserve the
ceasefire along the Lebanese
border. He was referring to the
cessation of hostilities negotiated
by U.S. special envoy Philip
Habib last summer between Is-
rael and the Palestine Liberation
Barlev told an Israel Radio re-
porter over the weekend that he
did not think the situation called
for "an Israeli military action
that could involve us in a war
with Lebanon." Gur said on the
same radio appearance that such
actions could develop into a war
with Syria.
Laborites drew a sharp response
from the Prime Minister's Office
where officials accused the oppo-
sition leaders of a "lack of
national responsibility." Last
week, Begin summoned Labor
Party chairman Shimon Peres,
Rabin and Barlev to a meeting at
his office where they discussed
matters that have not been dis-
closed. It was widely believed
these matters included the situa-
tion in Lebanon and the
possibility of forming a national
unity government. Peres insisted
later that a national coalition had
not been mentioned.
The possibility that an Israeli
attack on PLO bases in Lebanon
is imminent touched off a flurry
of activity in the U.S. and
Lebanon over the weekend. In
Washington, senior Administra-
tion officials said that they had
reports of new Israeli military
movements near the Lebanese
border and expressed grave con-
cern about a possible Israeli as-
sault on Lebanon.
State Department deputy
spokesman Alan Rom berg said,
"Once again we renew our appeal
to all of those involved or with in-
fluence on those involved to show
the utmost restraint." He added
that'This is a time for maximum
IN BEIRUT, Lebanese Presi-
dent Elias Sarkis reportedly mat
separately with the U\S. and So-
viet Ambassadors, Robert Dillon
and Aleksandr Sold a to v, to ap-
peal for their intervention to
avert an Israeli attack.
Israel has been charging in re-
cent weeks that PLO forces were
using the ceasefire to build up
their military strength. In addi-
tion, Israel accuses the PLO of
numerous ceasefire violations
and holds the PLO responsible
for the murder of an Israeli diplo-
mat, Yaacov Bar-Simantov, in
Paris. The possibility of an Is-
raeli move against the PLO was
increased by the reported capture
of two El Fatah terrorists at-
tempting to infiltrate Israel from
Hoopsters Press Right
To Wear Yarmulkes
Attorneys for the American
Jewish Congress, Midwest
Region, have filed a brief in
the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Seventh Circuit
Court to uphold the right of
Orthodox Jewish basket-
ball players to wear yar-
mulkes while playing inter-
scholastic basketball.
The Illinois High School Asso-
, nation appealed from the
decision of the United States
District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois which had
ordered the IHSA to allow the
basketball players to wear yar-
mulkes during inter-scholastic
competition as required by the
tenets of their religion.
AJ CONGRESS attorneys
Sylvia Neil, Shirley Dvorin and
David Grossberg represent the
Orthodox Jewish high school
asketball players from the He-
brew Theological College
Preparatory Division and Ida
Crown Academy, their parents
and the respective schools.
The case arose when the IHSA
announced that it would not
allow the wearing of securely
fastened varmulkes rlimig it
violated its rule prohibiting the
wearing of headgear on the bas-
ketball court and posed a safety
hazard. On behalf of plaintiff
students, AJCongress filed suit
as a class action in the United
fates District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois,
seeking declaratory and injunc-
"^ve relief.
The District Court entered an
I emergency restraining order in
February 1981, temporarily
enjoining the defendants from
prohibiting the plaintiff -
students participation in the

ball Regional Tournament while
Meanwhile, three Labor MKs,
Yossi Sarid, Yair Tsaban and
Victor Shemtov, of Mapam
warned the government in
separate statements that "There
is no national consensus regard-
ing possible developments in the
North." Sarid maintained that
"Israel-initiated actions would
not enjoy wide public support."
Sarid and Shemtov are members
of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee.
gave prominent display to photo-
graphs of civilians readying
bomb shelters in northern -Israel
and headlined U.S. calls for re-
straint. The general uneasiness
was not reduced by fact that the
Cabinet met Sunday, something
wearing yarmulkes as required
by their religion.
IN NOVEMBER, 1981, Judge
Milton Shadun granted judg-
ment for the plaintiffs and per-
manently enjoined the defen-
dants from enforcing the rule. He
found that the total absence of
proof of "real (safety) hazards"
failed to represent a compelling
state interest to overcome the
plaintiffs' First Amendment
The Court stated: "Ontheun-
controverted facts the risks
posed by yarmulkes and their ap-
purtenances are totally
In urging the Seventh Circuit
to uphold the District Court's
ruling under the First and Four-
teenth Amendment, the AJCon-
gress brief states: "The state
may justify an infringement on
the fundamental right to freely
exercise one's religion only in the
most limited circumstances .
The state must show that it is the
least restrictive means of achiev-
ing some compelling interest .
Clearly, IHSA's mere assertion
of safety based on hypothetical
injury does not satisfy the com-
pelling state interest required to
overbalance plaintiffs right to
the free exercise of religion.
THE BRIEF further argues:
"By prohibiting the wearing of
yarmulkes on the basketball
court, the defendant IHSA un-
constitutionally conditions the
benefit of participation in inter-
scholastic athletics on the
plaintiff's abandonment of their
religious beliefs. This result is
wholly in conflict with the pro-
tection accorded First Amen-
mends rights The condition-
ing of a public benefit on the
abandonment of one's religious
beliefs is precisely what is forbid-
den by (The United States
Supreme Court)."
Unity Gov't. a Move
Toward Lebanon Action?
There was speculation in some
circles that Habib might be dis-
patched to the region again to try
to calm the situation. Meanwhile,
I Israel witnessed the arrival here
of Nicholas Veliotes, the U.S. As-
sistant Secretary of State for
Near East and South Asian
. Affairs, who cams Tuesday from
I Cairo.
He was scheduled to meet with
Begin and with Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon. Veliotes'
talks were expected to deal with
Israel's border dispute with
Egypt over the Tsba salient in
Sinai. Observers believe he will
also discuss the Lebanon situa-

A two-hour meeting be-

raised new speculation that
a national unity govern-

possibly as a prelude to Is-

Attending the meeting, held
under a veil of secrecy in the
Prime Ministers Office, were Pre-

that the subject of discussion was
"political and security affairs."
He said a national unity govern-

Begin renewed his call for a na-

speculation here and abroad over
how Israel would react to the
murder of Israeli diplomat Yaa-

Palestine Liberation Organiza-
