United States will not be
deterred from pursuing its
latest Middle East plan by
Israel's negative reaction to
President Reagan's propos-
als was made here by U.S.
Defense Secretary Caspar
One of the differences between
this and previous Administra-
tions was that "we will not turn
and run." he told an interviewer
in the London Times. "We will
'not say: O dear, Mr. Begin
doesn't like it, we can't proceed
with it. or anything of the kind."
The President, Weinberger
stated, "does not operate that
way. He had devoted a great deal
of time and thought and effort to
developing this initiative.
THE REAGAN plan, Wein-
berger continued, offered "one of
Temple Emeth
the best hopes for peace" in the
Middle East in recent years.
"When I was in Israel, I ex-
pressed the disappointment that
I think we all feel that Mr. Begin
after an hour or half-an-hour, or
whatever it was, of consideration
with his Cabinet flatly rejected it
and then within a few days
started action that seemed to be
designed to emphasize their op-
position and contempt for this
attempt to bring peace."
Weinberger said that despite
Premier Manachem Begins reac-
tion, the U.S. cannot say,
"That's the end of it. I think we
have to continue to do what we're
trying to do, to demonstrate to
all countries involved, including
Israel, that it's very much in
their interest and advantage."
He added that although the U.S.
intends to pursue the Reagan
proposals, pressure will not be
exerted on Israel to accept them.
During his visit to London,
Weinberger held talks with
British Defense and Foreign Af-
fairs Ministers.
Mojor Gifts Chairman
Israeli Fall Festival
Sunday Nov. 21
Abner Levine, General Chair-
man of the 1983 Federation-UJA
Campaign announces the ap-
pointment of Norman I. Stone as
Major Gifts Chairman.
Stone will be responsible for
implementing and coordinating
all major gift functions, as well as
the Annual Dinner Dance.
Stone, a previous New York
resident, received a BA degree
from Franklin and Marshall Col-
lege, and while working days,
took graduate courses at Colum-
bia University evenings mostly
in textile chemistry. He associa-
ted himself with a yarn dye busi-
ness which he later sold (at age
38) and retired for a brief period.
He did some real estate syndica-
tions, and then became a trainee
for a major Wall Street brokerage
firm. Within a short period of
time Stone rose to corporate
officerships with several securi-
ties houses.
While still up north, he was a
member of the Board of Directors
of both the Valley National Bank,
and the Commonwealth United
Corporation. In addition, he was
a Founder and Officer of The
Seawane Club at Hewlett Harbor,
Long Island, an officer of Lodge
1353 of B'nai B'rith, a member of
Norman Stone
the National Economic Oppor-
tunity Commission, an officer of
the Community Chest and Troop
Chairman of the Boy Scouts.
He again retired in 1973 and
moved to Boca Raton where he
did volunteer work in the Emer-
gency Room of the Boca Raton
Community Hospital. He was ac-
tive in Temple Beth El's Broth-
erhood, was a Vice President of
the Friends of the Library of
Florida Atlantic University, Sec-
retary of the Broken Sound Golf
Club and a member of the Dis-
tinguished Artists Series Com-
Stone became active with the
Palm Beach Federation in 1974,
and when Boca Raton separated
itself from the Palm Beach Fed-
eration, he became an officer and
member of the South County
Board of Directors, and served as
General Campaign Chairman for
two years. He presently sits on
the Endowment Committee, as
well as the Executive Board, and
has been a Vice President of the
Federation for three vears.
In making the announcement
Abner Levine said, "as past Gen-
eral Campaign Chairman, Nor-
man Stone is eminently qualified
for his 1983 position as Major
Gifts Chairman. Norman's ex-
ceptional talents are well evi-
denced by the outstanding cam-
paign we had last year, when we
raised over S2.100.000. His re-
sponsiveness to the needs of our
people in Israel and to the threat

important for the community,
Jewish and non-Jewish alike, to

of anti-Semitism. It also is a fun

PLO 'Recognizes' IsraelAgain
senior Palestinian official
said that the Palestine Lib-

Resolution 242, thus "im-
plicitly recognizing Israel's
right to exist.
Dr. Issam Sartawi. described
as a personal adviser to PLO
Chief Yasir Arafat, told a press
conference that the PLO "rejects
only that part of the resolution
which speaks of the .Palestinians
as refugees without recognizing
their legitimate rights, but fully
accepts the rest of the text."
LAST WEEK Sartawi had in-
dicated that the PLO is prepared
to recognize Israel "on a basis of
reciprocity." As he went a step
further, he regretted America's
failure to respond to our over-
tures." However, he said the ap-
pointment of George Shultz as
Secretary of State was a "posi-
tive factor," which might indic-
ate that Washington "now plans
to conduct a better balance policy
in the Middle East.
The Palestinian-born, 44-year-
old cardiologist who has served
since 1977 as the PLO's contact
with the Israeli peace camp, em-
phatically rejected any future
role for former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger in the search for
a Middle East diplomatic solu-
Referring to reports from
Washington that Shultz might
ask Kissinger to assist the State
Department in some diplomatic
capacity, Sartawi said, "He is not
morally qualified." He charged
that Kissinger "had always been
partial and blatantly pro-Israeli.'
SARTAWI also said that the
"Kissinger clause," the promise
given to Israel not to negotiate
with the PLO before it recognizes
Israel," is simply anti-constitu-
He said the promise could not
be binding on the new Adminis-
tration as it "subordinates
America's foreign contacts to the
will and desires of a third party,"
namely Israel.
With Cold Contempt'
Begin Rejects Fez-Calls Arab Plan 'Renewal Declaration of War!
With "cold contempt,"
Israel rejected the Arab
summit Mideast plan pub-
lished in Fez, Morocco.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir denounced it as "a
renewed declaration of war
on Israel." A Foreign
Ministry statement, issued
here said "Israel
categorically rejects" the
proposals and characterized
them as "worse than the
Fahd plan which has been
rejected by Israel in the
That plan, presented in
August. 1981 by Crown Prince
Fahd now King Fahd of
Saudi Arabia, called for Arabs to
accept "the right of states in the
region to live in peace." The U.S.
saw it at the time as an oblique
but implicit recognition of Israel.
THE ARAB summit at Fez,
attended by the heads of the 19
Arab League member-states and
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion chief Yasir Arafat, called for
"the establishment of an inde-
pendent Palestinian state" on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip "with

East Jerusalem, in effect a return
to its pre-1967 borders, and the
dismantling of Israeli settle

also affirmed the inalienable na-
tional rights" of the Palestinian
people "under the leadership of
the PLO, its sole and legitimate
According to the Israeli For-
eign Ministry, the Fez proposals
contained nothing substantially
new or different from the "tradi-
tional Arab stance." They were
"worse than the Fahd plan" be-
cause they specifically called for a
Palestinian state "which consti-
tutes a danger to Israel's exis-
tence and underlines the aim of
the plan's authors: to bring
about the liquidation of Israel in
stages," the Foreign Ministry
of State George Shultz said Is-
rael's rejection of President Rea-
gan's peace initiative and the
"variance" with the President's
plan by the Arab League summit

tiations to achieve peace in the

statement "finally recognizing Is-
rael would be "of great impor-
tance." Modai said that if such a
statement required Israel's ac-
ceptance of a Palestinian state
headed by the PLO and division
of Jerusalem, Israel would
"waive the two."
IN PARIS, French officials
warmly welcomed the Fez formu-
lations, saying they concurred
with France's own position. They
interpreted the Arab summit
communique as an implicit
recognition of Israel's existence,
lifting one of the last stumbling
blocks on the way to a compre-
hensive resolution of the Middle
East conflict.

The heads of 19 Arab
states have reportedly ap-
proved a joint peace 'plan
for the Middle East based
on Saudi and Tunisian pro-
posals but also welcomed
the American plan as out-
lined by President Raegan
last week. The Palestine
Liberation Organization,
which attended the three-
day meeting in Fez,
Morocco, as the Arab
Leaugue's 20th member,
reportedly concurred with
these decisions.
The conference itself did not
make public any formal an-
nouncement, but Arab news
agencies and radio stations an-
nounced that the leaders had
found the American peace plan to
be "a positive step on the way to
peace" and have approved fur-
ther negotiations on this basis.
The Arab leaders have called,
however, for the creation of an in-
dependent Palestinian state and
for the PLO to be associated in all
future talks.
THE KUWAITI and the Unit
ed Emirates news agencies said
Jordan's King Hussein had told
the conference he is prepared to
negotiate with "all the interested
parties" if he has the approval of
the Palestinians. The agencies
did not clarify the PLO's formal
position except by hinting that it
had given its tacit approval to
this suggestion.
Western diplomats said the
Fez decisions referred more to
tactics than to fundamentals and
aim at keeping negotiations
going with the United States.
The 19 Arab states reportedly
wanted to respond in a positive
way to Reagan's plan and ap-
proved Saudi and Tunisian pro-
posals which imply Israel's

on earlier plans drawn up by 79-

communique came from Foreign

will be negotiated.
Theae points, which Israel has
already rejected, are that the
United States believes that full
autonomy should give the Pales-
tinians "real authority over
themselves, the land, and its re-
sources, subject to fair safe-
guards on water; economic, com-
mercial, social and cultural ties
between the West Bank and Gaza
and Jordan; East Jerusalem
Arabs to be allowed to vote for
the autonomy authority, and
progressive Palestinian responsi-
bility for internal security based
on capability and performance."
SHULTZ URGED Congress to
"stay with the President in his
determination to sustain" his ini-
tiative, and "to look for the long-
term just solutions."
When Acting Committee
Chairman L.C. Fountain (D.,
N.C.) asked what the United
States would do about Israeli
"intransigence," Shultz said that
the President's proposals were in
the early stages, as Reagan did
after the Knesset rejected
Reagan's proposals. Shultz said
the various parties were staking
out positions for negotiations.
Shultz said the United States had
made its position public and now
was waiting "for the right people
to come to the negotiating table."
When Rep. Benjamin Rosen-
thai (D., N.Y.) said he could not
see Premier Menachem Begin
changing his position, Shultz
noted that Begin already has a
record as a peace-maker as one of
the signers of the Camp David
accords. Shultz stressed, in his
opening remarks, that former
President Carter said that
Reagan's peace initiative "is ab-
solutely compatible with the
Camp David agreements."
The secretary said that the
Reagan Administration's "initia-
tive" will give the Camp David
provisions "their full meaning
and a new dynamism." Shultz
again ruled out any new pressure
on Israel, except "the compelling
pull of peace."
REP. Bob Shamansky (D.,
Ohio) said the only pressure that
would work on Israel would come
from within Israel itself and from

the Jewish people abroad, but he
said this will not be exerted until
Israelis and Jews see that the
Arab states have given their "ex-
plicit" recognition of Israel in-
stead of the "implicit" one they
continue to talk about. Shultz
noted that Reagan, in his speech,
urged Arab recognition of Israel.
Rosenthal and Rep. Benjamin
Oilman (R. N.Y.) raised the ques-
tion about Israel's charges it was
not fully consulted. Shultz said
that all the proposals had long
been made privately by the Unit-
ed States and were well known by
all the parties.
He said that, in formulating
the proposals, the United States
wanted to first make sure that
King Hussein of Jordan would be
willing to consider them, and
when this was assured, then
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and "of
course, Israel," were given the
"talking points" before Reagan
made his speech.
BUT SHULTZ indicated that
the United States had been wor-
ried about leaks from Israel, al-
though he did not mention Israel
by name. "The minute you go, at
least to some people, and say,
'here is what the President of the
United States is thinking of say-
ing,' it is in the public domain,"
he noted.
Shultz said that Reagan de-
cided to make his TV address
that night on Sept. 1 after details
of his proposals had been re-
vealed. While Shultz did not
mention Israel in this connection,
the details were revealed in Israel
earlier that day.
Most of the committee mem-
bers indicated support for the
President's proposal, but Rep.
Dante Fascell (D., Fla.) indicated
criticism when he said that, at a
time when Israel made it possible
to restore a strong central gov-
ernment in Lebanon, the United
States had "dusted off an old
Jordanian plan for peace in the
FASCELL and Rep. Stephen
Solan (D., N.Y.) questioned the
United States abandoning its role
as mediator. Shultz, who has ex-
perience as a labor mediator, said
there are many roles for a media-
unsn naiia nap?

He said the United States had
decided that now is the time for
public proposals because of the
"stagnant state" of the auton-
omy talks.
Shultz, in stressing Reagan's
'commitment "to stay fully en-
gaged" in the effort to bring
about a sovereign Lebanon, em-
phasized that problems of Leb-

Arens Warns Against
Losing 'Benefits' of War
Israel's Ambassador to the
United States, Mo she
Arens, has cautioned that
the "major benefits" to the
United States and Israel
resulting from the Leba-
nese war could be dissipat-
ed unless there was close
cooperation between Wash-
ington and Jerusalem on
future developments in the
Middle East.
In a report to the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations following
his return from Israel last week,
Arens said that any effort by the
Administration to "distance" it-
self from Israel in order to per-
suade the "so-called Arab mo-
derates" of America's good in-
tentions toward them could prove
"destructive" to both American
and Israeli interests.
"U.S.-Israeli cooperation is
necessary," Arens told the Presi-
dents Conference, "if the positive
results of Operation Peace for
Galilee are to endure." He said
"great achievements" had result-
ed from Israel operation in Leba-
non "and not only for Israel."
AMONG THE achievements,
Arens said, were:
"A major charge has
taken place in the East-West
power balance, both in the re-
lative strategic position and the
perceived strength of forces of
NATO and the Warsaw Pact."
What had been considered the
"Soviet preponderance" in con-
ventional arms is now known
both in Washington and in Mos-
cow as a mirage, the result of
Israel's stunning success, using
American and Israeli-made
weapons, against Soviet-supplied
aircraft, surface-to-air missiles
and tanks. Arena said.
As a result, "Soviet stock
has sunk to zero among the Arab
states," the Israeli envoy said.
"None of the Arab countries is
going to Moscow to shop for
arms," he observed, adding that
this had "immeasurably streng-
thened the American strategic
position in the Middle East," he
"A clear and powerful answer
has now been given to the ques-
tion of whether the Western
world could protect the vast pool
of oil in the Persian Gulf area. It
is now clear that the United
States and Israel, working in
tandem, can project sufficient
power to meet any contingency in
the Middle East but only if the
two work closely together."
Israel's primary objective
to end the PLO threat to Israel's
north has been achieved.
The precondition have
been set for restoration of Leba-
non's independence, its return to
the Western camp and the
possibility of signing a peace
treaty with Israel.
International terrorism has
been dealt a telling blow. "In
Lebanon,' Arens said, "the PLO
was able to operate above ground
in what had been turned, in ef-
fect, into a PLO state. Other ter-
rorist movements such as the
Baader-Meinhof gang, the IRA.
the Red Brigades and others, be-
nefited significantly from the
PLO 8 control over so much of
Lebanon and from the PLO infra-
structure that had been estab-
lished there. Never again will ter-
rorist groups ever enjoy such a
broad range of facilities and such
freedom of action."
Conversion Pamphlet
Answers Critical Queries
NEW YORK-What is Ju-
daism's attitude toward
persons who chose to be-
come Jewish? How does
one become a Jew? Is a per-
son who becomes Jewish
expected to give up not
only his previous religious
beliefs but his family as
These are among the questions
posed and answered in a new
pamphlet on conversion to Ju-
daism issued recently by the Un-
ion of American Hebrew Congre-
gations, central body of Reform
Judaism in the United States and
WRITTEN BY Rabbi Sanford
Seltzer, director of the UAHC's
Task Force on Reform Jewish
Outreach, the 10-page pamphlet
is a product of the historic "Out-
reach program approved by the
UAHC at its 56th biennial as-
sembly in Boston last December.
At that time, the UAHC's ool-
icy-making body voted to launch
a nationwide campaign aimed at
"spreading the message of Jud-
aism" to non-Jewish partners in
mixed marriages, to the children
of such marriages and to "per-
sons of no religious preference."
The move, reversing a 500-
year-old Jewish tradition against
seeking converts, had been urged
by UAHC President Rabbi Alex
ander M. Schindler, who called
upon Reform congregations to
undertake "affirmative action to
make Judaism available to those
within our midst and to the un-
churched across America."
Judaism welcomes men and
women who voluntarily become
Jews and considers them full-
fledged members of the Jewish
community, the pamphlet notes.
It cites numerous examples in
both the Bible and rabbinic liter-
ature of individuals who opted for
conversion. Perhaps the most
famous convert in Jewish history
is Ruth, regarded by tradition as
the ancestor of King David, from
whose descendants the messiah
would come.

Tense Debate
Knesset Okays Conduct of Lebanon War
The Knesset has ap-
proved the government's
conduct of the war in Leba-
non by a vote of 50-40. The
endorsement was followed
by a tense debate over
President Reagan's Mid-
east peace proposal, flatly
rejected by Premier Mena-
chem Begin's Cabinet but
supported by the opposi-
tion Labor Alignment as a
basis for negotiations over
The debate between Likud and
Labor over the war centered on
its expansion and the level of
force applied rather than on the
original war aims. Labor agreed
with the necessity to rid south
Lebanon of Palestinian terrorists
menacing Israel's borders. But it
questioned the need to send Is-
raeli troops to the environs of
Beirut. 60 miles north of the
border and the intense land, air
and sea bombardment of west

tion and the Syrians bore sole
responsibility for the expansion
of the war. He said the PLO had
two chances to end the blood-
shed; the first on June 11, five
days after the fighting started,
when Israel declared a unilateral
ceasefire after clearing the terror-
ists from a 40-mile zone in south
Lebanon; and again on June 26
when Israel offered the PLO and
the Syrians safe conduct out of
Beirut via the Damascus high-
According to Begin, the war
brought peace and a new life to
the inhabitants of Galilee. He

towns and villages of Galilee and
try to tell the people there that
the campaign was unjustified.

MUCH OF the Knesset debate
on the war was conducted by De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon, the
architect of Israel's military
strategy and tactics, and Haim
Barlev. a Labor Party leader who
was Chief of Staff during the
1967 Six-Day War.
Sharon extolled the war as a
"stunning achievement which
created an earthquake in the
area." Nobody had believed, he
said, that terrorism could be up-
rooted from Beirut-
Sharon attacked the Reagan
plan. "We are on the threshhold
of a new, mighty struggle," he
said. "One tries to impose on us a
plan which conflicts with our own
interests and with the Camp Da-
vid accords. The events in Leba-
non should light a thousand
warning candles against sug-
gested demilitarized zones ac-
cording to the American plan,"
he said. One of the by-products of
the war is the increased ability of
Israel to cope with new plans
without the pressure of terrorism,
the Defense Minister added.
the vast majority of Israelis
agreed that there was no way to
avoid military action to free the
northern settlements from terror-
ist fire. Even world public
opinion showed understanding
and as long as the war was con-
ducted in those limits, there was
no criticism, he said.
"The debate is on the justifica-
tion of using force to achieve sec-
ondary goals, not the main goal
of peace for Galilee." Barlev de-
clared. It is also "on the moral af-
fects of such a war. It was the
first time since the establishment
of the State that we pursued
goals which were not a vital nec-
essity for the existence of the
Barlev agreed that a stable
government in Lebanon and the
ouster of the PLO and the Syr-
ians from that country were
desirable goals. But Israel's
existence does not depend on
them, he observed. "Lebanon has
never been a security problem for
Israel. From this point of view, it
really doesn't matter if we sign a.
peace treaty with Lebanon or
settle for formal arrangements,
such as the good fence," he said.
The latter was a reference to the
open borders Israel has main-
tained with Lebanon since the
civil war began in that country.

requirements in Lebanon. He
repeated that there would have to
be a security zone of 40-50 kilo-
meters in south Lebanon devoid
if artillery and other offensive
weaponry, "Neither UNIFIL Itberfj
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon) nor the multi-national
force (in Beirut) will be able to
assure us of such security," he
Sharon said a few days earlier
that Israel may have to control
south Lebanon indefinitely by
occupation or other means unless
Lebanon signs a peace treaty
with Israel.
The Knesset, officially w-

session to debate the war.

World Conference on Soviet

Oct. 24 through 26 with the
participation of 1,000 rep-
resentatives of world-wide
Jewish communities, rank-
ing Israeli leaders, U.S.
Congressmen, and mem-
bers of Britain's Parlia-

The Conference Steering
Committee announced after a
two-day meeting here that Prime
Minister Pierre Mauroy of France
will formally open the proceed-
ings, and Premier Menachem Be-
gin of Israel will deliver the
closing address. Shimon Peres,
chairman of Israel's Labor Party,
will also speak. The Conference
will be chaired by Leon Dulzin,
chairman of the World Zionist
Organization and Jewish Agency
A SPOKESMAN noted that
the Conference will convene at a
time of mounting pressure
against Jews in the USSR and
sharply declining emigration
figures. Only 1,723 Jews were
permitted to leave the Soviet
Union during the first seven
months of 1982 compared to
7,386 during the same period last
But Conference organizers
pointed out that the first two
world gatherings for Soviet Jews
in 1971 and 1976, had had a
positive effect on the rate of
Jewish emigration and that the
first meeting in 1971 marked the
start of the Jewish activist move-
ment inside the USSR.
Begin is scheduled to meet
with President Francois Mitter-
rand while in Paris and with
other members of the French
government. The meetings are
significant because Franco-
Israeli relations reached a new
low after the terrorist attack on a
Jewish restaurant on the Ruedes
Hosiers in Paris last month. Isra-
el charged that France's Middle
East policy had created the
climate "which enabled the ter-
rorists to operate." Mitterrand
strongly denied the charges.

participation of a French unit in
supervising the evacuation of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion from the West Beirut and
the insistence by the French gov-
ernment that their departure
should be carried out under

French relations with Jerusa-
lem have sunk so low that several
members of the Conference
Steering Committee suggested
that the gathering be postponed
or moved to another country.
Some committee members feared
that France could not ensure the
safety of the participant. These
objections were overcome after
the French authorities met with
Israeli representatives who indic-
ated that Begin wanted the meet-
ing to be held in Paris.
Mapam Leader Eager for Charge Party
Spread Anti-War Propaganda
Mapam Secretary General Victor
Shemtov has challenged the gov-
ernment to prosecute Mapam for
allegedly spreading anti-war pro-
paganda among Israeli troops at
the front in Lebanon. He was re-
ferring to a leaflet displayed by
Premier Menachem Begin at a
Cabinet meeting which outraged
the ministers by declaring that it
was impossible to destroy the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion by military means.
The leaflet bore the imprint of
Mapam. Begin likened it to the
propaganda the Bolsheviks
spread among Russian troops in
1917 in order to demoralize the
Czarist armies furhting the Ger-

mans. The Cabinet demanded an
investigation by the Attorney
General aimed at bringing
criminal charges against Mapam,
a partner in the opposition Labor
Mapam welcomed prosecution
because it would "prove to the
nation" the "stupidity and male-
volence" of the Likud govern-
ment. He said the leaflet in ques-
tion was an internal document
stating Mapam's public position
against the war in Lebanon.
It was not "disseminated
among the troops," Shemtov
said. It was sent to party
branches and kibbutzim for the
guidance of party activists and
copies that found their way to the
front lines were brought there,
just as any other material, by
soldiers returning from leave, he
said. There was no intention by
Mapam to propagandize the
army, he added.
Ha noted further that the posi-
tions stated in the leaflet have
been aired in dozens of media ar-
ticles which had far wider circula-
tion among troops at the front.
The leaflet claimed what many
critics at home and abroad have
been saying of Israel's action in
Lebanon: That its purpose was
not simply to secure a terrorist-
free zone in south Lebanon but to
destroy the PLO by military
means and establish a govern-
ment in Lebanon subservient to
Begin, meanwhile, backed
away from a suggestion by
former Mapam MK Dov Zakin
that he initiate legal action
against Mapam himself, since he
was so outraged by the leaflet. In
a letter to Zakin, made public,
Begin said it was up to the legal
authorities, not the Prime Minis-
ter, to take action in cases of this
(JTA) The State De-
partment said that the
Reagan Administration
would put "proper pres-
sure" on Israel to support
President Reagan's peace
initiative but has ruled out
sanctions. Department
spokesman John Hughes
defined "proper pressure"
as "persuasion" and "draw-
ing attention to the great
benefits that will ensue for
Israel making peace with
its neighbors."
He said the U.S. hopes Israel
will eventually agree when it
realizes that "the end result is so
rewarding" for its security.
The Administration indicated
that it does not consider what it
called Israel's 'initial' rejection
of Reagan's proposals as Israel's
final word. "No one expected this
would be an easy road to travel,"
Hughes said. There will have to
be "a lot of hard negotiations."
Secretary of State George Shultz
has ruled out "sanctions" against
Israel such as withholding mili-
tary and economic aid. A State
Department official said later
that the U.S. also ruled out sanc-
tions against Israel for contin-
uing to build Jewish settlements
on the West Bank, despite Rea-
gan's statement that they were
not helpful to the peace process.
The official said that in both
cases, sanctions would do no
good because they would not
achieve the desired results.
At the same time, Hughes
said, the U.S. believes that there
is "room for discussion" about
the security arrangements for Is-
rael in southern Lebanon. He said
that whether this would involve
Maj. Saad Haddad's militia
would have to be worked out with
the Lebanese government.
Hughes said the U.S. "de-
plores" the kidnapping of eight
Israeli soldiers in Lebanon, re-
portedly by the PLO. He said it
was not "conducive to the peace
process" and "underlines" the
need for "reconciliation" in Leb-
anon and the return to a strong
central government there.
Hughes said the U.S. wants
the autonomy negotiations to re-
sume as quickly as possible. He
said at the same time the Admin-
istration felt it needed the "injec-
tion of new elements," one of
which was the President's peace
But he emphasized that there
should be no direct link between
the autonomy talks and events in
Lebanon. He also called for a
speedy Israeli withdrawal from
Lebanon regardless of whether
the two countries agree to sign a
peace treaty.
MWE SUPPORT the return to
civilian government in Lebanon
and the withdrawal of Israeli,
Syrian and Palestine Liberation
Organization forces as speedily
as possible," the State Depart-
ment spokesman said. He said
the U.S. also favored a peace
treaty between Israel and Leb-
anon, "a real peace treaty nego-
tiated by governments that are
happy with the negotiations,"
but this should not be related to
the withdrawal of Israeli forces.

Sharon Says Israel
Doesn't See Treaty
With Lebanon As

BEGIN ALSO was reported to
have been "insulted" by Ge-
mayel's cool attitude inasmuch
as the leader of the rightwing
Christian Phalangists owed his
election in large measure to Is-
rael's army in Lebanon.
Political pundits here assume
that Sharon's remarks on Israel's
security plans in Lebanon had
Begin's personal approval. Al-
though the Cabinet has not yet
discussed future relations with
Lebanon, Begin, Sharon and
Shamir consult frequently to-
gether. It is assumed here that
the three senior Cabinet minis-
ters are in agreement and that
Sharon's statements reflect this.
Whatever agreements are
reached with respect to a long
range relationship with Lebanon,
Israel has indicated it is in no
hurry to withdraw its forces from
Lebanon, including the northern-
most points to which Israel
troops advanced.
IN THAT connection, Sharon
reportedly told Morris Draper,
the senior U.S. diplomat in Leb-
anon, that Israel would not with-
draw from the environs of Beirut
until Sharon and his family
"could spend a weekend at the
Commodore Hotel in west
Beirut," the Moslem quarter of
the Lebanese capital.
Draper is Deputy Assistant
Secretary of State for Near East
and Sooth Asian Affairs and was
special Ambassador Philip
Habib's deputy in the negotia-
tions which led to the evacuation
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization from west Beirut.
Israel is insisting furthermore
that no anti-Israel elements must
be allowed to remain in Beirut
which could facilitate the return
of the PLO. But sources here
have denied a report that Israel
issued an ultimatum for the evac-
uation of 2,000 leftist militiamen
from west Beirut. Israel contin-

Tyre Woman Wants Permit to Visit Her Son in an Israeli Hospita
to Israel to see my son in the hospital." The
woman in the blue dress with the anxious eyes
was not addressing me in the crowded public
square at Tyre. She was plucking at the sleeve of
the IDF spokesman who was explaining to me the
local situation they'd already had water for
two weeks, and the electricity was turned on,
facts and figures that seemed unimportant mea-
sured against the urgency of the woman's plea.
Wearily, he told her that it was not his function
and pointed out where to wait where he'd al-
ready directed scores of other people anxious
either to travel to Israel or to rejoin relatives up
north in Beirut. Most of them stood patiently
alongside a truck piled with blankets that would
later be distributed to those who needed them.
Later, I went over to her. "Can you help me get
a permit?" she asked, clutching at straws. Amira
would have been an attractive woman under dif-
ferent circumstances. She was about 40, well-
dressed, with a gold cross around her neck. But
the worry lines around her eyes and mouth were
already etched deeply.
LIKE MANY OTHERS from southern Leba-
non, now that the PLO had been routed, she had
returned to her home in Tyre from Beirut, where
she'd fled with her son. But he'd been caught in
the crossfire a week ago and flown by helicopter
to a hospital in Nahariya. "It is good to come,"
she told me. "My bouse is fine not even a
broken window, and it is wonderful to know that I
am safe from 'them.' But I can't start my life,
again properly until my son is better and can live
with me. I want to go to visit him."
Tyre is a picturesque town and despite the
bomb damage, the profile and skyline remain. We
drove there from Naqoura, where the UNIFIL
forces have their headquarters not far from our
border it's a Western-style shanty town, like
something from an old cowboy movie. It even has
a Silver Coast restaurant, clothing store, a barber
shop and "coiffure de dames" for the Swedish
nurses at SWEDMEDCO opposite.
But Tyre, 20 kms. from the border, is a real
town. The shopping center was doing a brisk
trade on this Sunday morning, particularly
"Patisserie Arabe" a giant cake shop with the
kind of mouth-watering confections that I've only
seen in Groppi's coffee-house in Cairo. A 10-tier
wedding cake dominated the window.
THE PROPRIETOR, Mr. Ramlawi, was doing
business as usual, despite the war business
better than usual, one of my companions re-
marked cynically. Whether he was happy that Is-
rael had cleared the PLO out of Tyre or was just
benefitting from the influx of soldiers and
journalists in the town, Mr. Ramlawi did seem
very cheerful indeed. He even had the word
"Open" lettered in Hebrew on bis door (in fact
there were many shops with Hebrew signs, some
even offering special discounts for soldiers).
"You are welcome in this country," he informed
me, noticing my IDF Liaison Officer waiting
nearby. "When the terrorists were here, they
would come in the shop ten at a time taking
whatever they wanted. Food, money, drinks. It is
good that you got them out." It is thought that
there are still many PLO terrorists in Tyre, but
we were told that the townspeople regularly in-
form on them, either to the IDF or to their local
Bishop. Some 90 were turned in the week before
our visit.
Tyre has a romantic location, situated round a
tiny bay with a marina for boats. Several fisher-
men were wading in the water, patiently waiting
for a bite. The skyline of minarets, spires and
domes reminded me of Akko (Acre).
JUST OUTSIDE TYRE, we visited the ar-
chaeological site of a Roman stadium from 13
BCE. The third largest in the world, it is beau-
tifully preserved. The enormous hippodrome was
used for chariot races and gladiatorial combat.
Behind the rows of seats were cleverly concealed
rooms built by PLO terrorists, the crude cinder-
blocks and freshly daubed cement contrasting
with the massive stones of olden days.
It was from this site that rockets were launched
at Nahariya. Israel knew this, but did not bomb it
in order to preserve the magnificent ruins. We
looked in the dark bunkers, now filled with the
ugly remnants of war: spent shells, tin helmets,
terrorist literature. There was a rancid stench of
decay. It seemed almost sacrilegious to use this
wonderful relic of the past to attack innocent peo-
ple in tin'present.
When we came out again into sunshine, there
was an iderly man with a cane and a smart straw
hat, wl i seemed anxious to show us around. He
spoke strange kind of English, very old-
fashioi. :!. He was neither friendly or unfriendly.
He mof ined us to follow him, and I had to trot to
keep up with him. All the time he was giving a
kind of monologue about the amphitheater. 'See
the-.' flat stones they were altars. Human

the Greek and this is Byzantine."
"I just wanted to ask you..."
"Here is an aqueduct," he would interrupt me.
"It carried water out five miles..."
"The bunkers, Mr. Zyldowi, did you know
about the bunkers?"
"I am guide," he said after a pause. "I work
here." He would say nothing more. He waited ex-
pectantly. We gave him a tip.
It was almost a holiday scene when we crossed
the Litani River. The banana plantations looked
splendid in the hot sun. Soldiers in bathing suits
did their washing in the river, with towels and un-
derwear strung up to dry. Every building we
passed seemed to be flying a flag. Over some flut-
tered the Lebanese flag two red stripes, a white
central one with a kind of stylized fir tree in the
center. A few houses had the Phalange flag, but
most to be safe flew a large white flag of
surrender. I thought that if I'd been living
through an eight-year war, I'd probably fly a
white flag too.
ON THE ROAD to Sidon, the scenery con-
tinued to be beautiful, sparkling sea striped in
bands from light aqua to deep indigo; and the
green of figs, grapevines and lemon orchards.
Sidon reminded me of Haifa. When we reached
Sidon, there was some kind of demonstration by
women they were screaming and some were
I was told they were the women of Palestinian
prisoners. A soldier fired twice in the air, shock-
ingly close to us, and they dispersed. The whole
incident took half a minute, yet it is hard to forget
for it symbolizes so much of the pain of war.
There was bomb damage, but not a lot from
what I'd seen on TV, I'd expected something
much worse. What had once been an elegant villa
had the roof damaged. It sat at a crazy drunken
angle, ludicrous atop the white facade and fluted
columns in front. Through the open door I could
glimpse very high ceilings, crystal chandeliers,
velvet drapes and a parquet floor. A young man
came out.
"You can't go up," he said to our photo-
grapher, who wanted permission to shoot scenes
of the city from the top floor. "It's locked. I don't
have a key," he repeated several times. When I
asked him if he were glad that Israel had come to
his country, his face became guarded. "You do
good job," he finally acknowledged. "PLO bad
people get them out. But then you must go too.
PLO, Syrians, Israelis you must all go home."
IN THE CENTER of town there were again the
strong contrasts I'd come to associate with Leba-
non Silhouetted against the rubble and hulks of
unfinished buildings, was a ferris wheel. There
was no music or laughing children and I thought
it looked almost obscene, like a chimp of delicate
pink hydrangeas I'saw growing next to a pile of
rotting garbage. Life seemed unexpectedly care-
free in the town people shopping, coming home
from church, licking ice-cream enjoying their
A woman was directing a group of children
sweeping the street in front of a slightdamadged
building. She was blonde and looked American. I
went to talk to her, but she shook her head, she
only spoke Arabic. Suddenly I was surrounded by
children, all wanting to be photographed with me.
They laughed and chattered like happy children
anywhere. The decision to clean up the the streets
had been made by the Israeli officer in charge.
After the photos, a fat boy in a red T-shirt de-
tached himself from the group and came after me.
He said his name was Honni, and he was 13. He
learns English at the National Evangelical
School. "Maybe you help find my uncle," he
pleaded. "His name m Your soldiers took him
away to Palestine a month ago. He do nothing
he own two shops here. He was in Libya long
time, but not train to be soldier. He work there
for Italian company," he added. The children
were still smiling and waving as we drove off.
JUST BEFORE BEIRUT, where we were
turned back, the sounds of battle grew frighten-
ingly loud and 166 mm cannons were firing over
our heads. We beaded for the mountains. En
route, we stopped for refreshments at a res-
taurant on the beachfront with the unlikely name,
Sands Rock Beach. It was unbelievable that the
war was just a fow kilometers away. People sat on
the terrace eating grilled chicken and chips, sip
ping cans of 7Up. Pretty girls in bikinis showed
off their suntans, and below the swimming pools
and the beach were crowded with Sunday plea-
We were waited on by the proprietor's son,
Pierre Azzi, a young man in a 10-gallon hat. He
was home on holiday from San Antonio Univer-
sity in Texas, where he is studying hotel manage-
ment. Despite the crowds waiting to be served, he
was happy to chat. "You know, I was nearly
killed by the PLO twice," he informed me.
"Once they beat me until my father gave them
a lot of money to stop. Another time they came to
rob us I got out the window and hid until they
were gone. Now they've left this town, thanks to
Israel, and we can get on with our lives." One re-
cords all these stories without any possibility of
verifying or disproving them. Only when it is a
Christian speaking, the impression is of complete
IT WAS HERE we tried to find a word to des-
cribe the Lebanese people who were swimming,
eating and enjoying themselves, seemingly com-
pletely indifferent to the battle sounds from Bei-
rut. We began with "placid," moving on the "cal-
loused," "impervious," "resigned" and "uncom-
mitted." None of them seemed to convey just the
right shade of meaning. Maybe "fatalistic?"
One of our last stops was at Jezin, a beautiful
Christian village high up in the mountains. It was
an unbelievable scene considering where we were
a peaceful Sunday afternoon promenade. There
were no signs of the war at all no bomb dam
age, nothing to convey that you weren't holiday-
ing in the Swiss alps. Girls walked in pairs, their
fingers linked, in high-heeled sandals, lots of
jewellery and make-up.
One pretty girl wore a T-shirt that proclaimed
in silver, blue and pink: "Sweet things remind me
of you." The only incident that brought us back
to reality was when the four of us, my three male
companions and I, went into a coffee house, where
men were playing backgammon and cards. The
sudden cessation of activity and uncomfortable
glances made us realize our faux pas. In Lebanon,
this kind of coffee house was for men the
women were home with the children or talking to
their women friends. The waiter served us with
averted face. A man at the next table, smoking a
nagila water pipe, talked to my companions, not
DARKNESS BEGAN to fall when we were on
the road to Nabatiye a terrible road fit only for
donkeys. (The Lebanese are not accustomed to
paying taxes, and the roads show it). The sun sat
low in the sky, an orange disc with drifts of blue
cloud floating across it. The light became pink,
blue and finally black. We drove back fast, trying
to reach the border before the curfew. We didn t
make it and were stopped angrily at various
checkpoints, where soldiers of different al-
legiances shouted at us.
Eventually we crossed the Israeli border and
began the long drive back to Jerusalem, tia*l
the silent night where the only sounds I heard
were the voices from Lebanon, repeating tnor
words in my ears like the rerun of an old movie.

The Reality Behind
The Fahd Facade
Filling in Background
Israeli Jets Destroy More Syrian SAM'S
London Chronicle Syndicate
When President Reagan said,
in November, 1981, that Saudi
Arabia was "the key to peace in
the Middle East," he was ac-
knowledging the crucial role as-
signed to Saudia Arabia in U.S.
foreign policy. Not only is the

Arabs, and the supply of

trialized West with oil against

The Lebanese crisis has done
nothing to change the U.S. view
of Saudi Arabia, but it has pro-
bably strengthened the Saudis'
hand in the long term. Intense
Saudi displeasure at Israel's
action was listened to carefully in
Washington. Foreign Minister
Prince Saud al-Faysal met the
U.S. Secretary of State George
Shultz on July 21 and demanded
the full and unconditional with-
drawal of the Israeli forces from
Lebanese territory.
ASKED ABOUT the possibil-
ity that the Kingdom might im-
pose sanctions on the U.S. if the
Israelis occupied West Beirut,
the Prince refused to disclose the
substance of his talks but cer-
tainly gave the impression that
sanctions were threatened.
Fears that Shultz's close con-
tacts with Saudi Arabia through
his former company, the Bechtel
group, would lead to a sudden
shift in support from Israel to the
Arabs were premature. Bechtel,
one of the world's largest con-
struction and engineering com-
panies, has many Arab clients
and is presently involved in a 25-
year capital project in Saudi
Arabia said to cost upwards of
$50 billion.
Saudi ties with the U.S. are
presented as being in America's
national interest, all of a piece
with the ideological view of world
conflict which prevails in the
White House. This view is also
said to be in Israel's interest,
since it identifies the Soviets as
the primary threat.
BUT THIS cozy picture of
U.S-Saudi relations does not
stand up to analysis. First,
Shultz notwithstanding, the
economic dimension, the impor-
tance of oil (Saudi Arabia is the
world's largest oil exporter), the
billions of dollars of Saudi con-
tracts placed with U.S. compa-
nies, the petrodollars in the
American banking system, has
far-reachng political implica-
tions. The successful campaign to
persuade U.S. Senators to vote in
favor of selling AWACS to Saudi
Arabia is a disturbing example of
the infl'i'nce he Saudis can
An i stir Uve report by
Steven 1. .iersoii. published in the

lic in February 98*. .ound that
"the Saudi lobbying campaign
resulted in one of the most suc-
cessful manipulations of Ameri-
can business at American for-
eign policy evei .ttempted by a
foreign power." On the impor-
tance of U.S.-Saudi relations in
the light of this, Emerson says:
"The alignment with Saudi
Arabia is the product of vested
interests, not national interests."
Second, although some observ-
ers like to portray the Saudi
Kingdom as the essence of mod-
eration and stability, 'he reality
is different. Saudi oil policy, for
example, is characterized as
being sympathetic to the West,
but the Saudis did nothing to
prevent prices rising in 1980 or
1981, and they actually raised
their own prices along with other
OPEC states in 1980-1981 by f 8 a
MOREOVER, high revenues
are needed to finance the king-
dom's ambitious development
projects and extensive military
spending almost $28 billion in
1981-1982. The oil weapon, used
in 1973, is now considered too
blunt an instrument, but its use
has not been ruled out altogether.
King Fahd's end of Ramadan
speech on July 23 contained a
sentence, excised from the
English language version re-
leased by the Saudi Press
Agency, which referred
.ominously to the purposes of
"our oil policy."
The installation of Crown
Prince Fahdas King after the
death of King Khalid was ef-
fected smoothly. But internally,
during the last 10 years, there
have been numerous examples of
incidents in which disaffected of-
ficers, self-styled "liberation
movements" (in the Hijaz and al-
Hasa), and even traditional tribal
elements loyal to the house of
Saud, have attempted to rise
against the regime.
Foreign workers (1 in 6 of the
working population) have insti-
gated demonstrations, and the
sizeable minority of Shi'ites in
the Eastern Province oil fields
were involved in demonstrations
in support of Ayatollah Khomeini
and against the Saudi regime
during the Great Mosque insur-
rection in 1979.
ISLAM, which is seen as a
strong legitimating factor and a
source of international influence
for the kingdom through the
Saudi-inspired Islamic Confer-
ence Organization, is being
turned against the regime by
Sunnis who reject the Wahrabi
domination and by other Wah-
rabis who regard the ruling
family as corrupt and western-
Thirdly, the Saudis themselves
have mixed feelings about their
designated role in U.S. plans for
the region. They see the U.S.
Rapid Deployment Force as a
means of occupying their oil
fields and not as a means of pro-
tection against Moscow's hypo-
thetical interference in the Gulf.
Their own plans for closer region-
al integration through the Gulf
Cooperation Council are hin-
dered by excessive U.S. interest,
especially since relations with the
other Gulf states are often un-
easy. While the U.S. continues to
stress the Soviet threat, the Sau-
dis worry more about the Iran-
Iraq war and the 'centrality of
the Palestine issue."
Distinctions between Arab
states, such as were apparent
over the Saudi eight-point plan
for Middle East peace proposed
last year, which included a tacit
recognition of Israel's right to
live in peace in the region should
be ignored, and any signs of
moderation should surely be en-
couraged by the U.S. Govern-
Saudis through what is a dis-
torted relationship can be coun-
terproductive: both sides make
use of ands interpret the relation-
ship in different ways. It is hard
to escape the conclusion that,in
emphasizing the Soviet threat in
the region, about which many
analysts with impeccable creden-
tials remain unconvinced, and
pursuing the Saudis, the U.S. has
created an irreconcilable conflict
of its own proclaimed interests.
Israeli aircraft
destroyed another SAM-9
Syrian missile battery at
the same spot where two
others were bombed and
destroyed last week. Ac-
cording to an army spokes-
man, the missile battery
and launcher destroyed was
in the same area as those
destroyed last Wednesday
and Thursday some six
miles east of Bhamdoun on
the Beirut Damascus high-
way. All planes returned
safely to their base, the
spokesman said.

battery in the Bekaa valley came
shortly after an army spokesman

grave urgency ceasefire viola-

Israel issued a stern warning to
Syria to hnit violations of the
ceasefire originating in the
Syrian-held area of eastern
Lebanon. Cabinet Secretary Dan
Meridor said Israel held Syria
fully responsible for these actions
which have multiplied in recent
weeks. He said if the Syrians
wanted to stop the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization's activities
it could do so, as it has done on
the Golan Heights for many
Cabinet sources warned that
the situation between Israeli and
Syrian troops facing each other in
Lebanon was "deteriorating
sharply." They said Israel would
not allow a "war of attrition to
develop." The sources said the
warnings to Syria were relayed
through the U.S. and other chan-
nels but so far have had no effect.

With the departure of the U.S.
Marines from Beirut last Friday
three weeks after their arrival
and well within the 30-day stay
promised by President Reagan
and of the Italian contingent on
Saturday, only the 850 troops of
the French contingent of the
multinational force remained in
Beirut. The French departed this
week, though the Lebanese gov-
ernment was reported to have ex-
pressed an interest in them stay-
ing on for some time longer.
MEANWHILE, fighting
broke out in central Beirut as
leftwing gunmen clashed with the
Lebanese regular army. Security
forces identified the gunmen as
members of the "Partisans of the
Revolution." According to
reports from Beirut, the leftists
fired at a Moslem delegation
leaving west Beirut to pay their
respects to Gemayel.

existing legislation gave rise to a
loophole which made the sending
of Nazi insignias to Germany
from abroad possible. To close

THE NEW wording would

Insignia, as defined by law. "are,

NEW LAW, which adds
icle 39-A to the state's Gen-
Business Law, is titled
Merchants of Torah Scrolls.'' It
juires a merchant who regular-
deals in the sale of scrolls to
vide buyers with a document
discloses the identity of
person from whom the mer-
lant bought the scroll, and by
lat authority the person is sell-
the scroll to the merchant.
The document also must list
y unique characteristics of the
oil which would be useful for
ntification purposes. The mer-
int must maintain for a 10-
period a chronology of the
as of the disclosure state-

he legislation requires the
spicuous posting of a notice in
place of business in New
k State in which a merchant
legularly engaged in the sale of
ah scrolls. The sign is to read:
Article 39-A of the New York

information concerning
Scrolls. If you are a pro-
ve recipient of a Torah

tion must be given to you

eggy Tishman, chairperson of
JCRC Commission on Jewish
uni y. hailed the new law as a
much-needed safeguard. She
praised the work of Marc Stern,
counsel for the American Jewish
Congress, who drafted the
measure, and Dennis Rapps, exe-
cutive director of the National-
Jewish Commission on Law and
Public Affairs who assisted
Tishman said the new law was
the product of "a community ef-
fort, in which all of the rabbinic,
synagogue and community
agencies have cooperated."
THE LAW'S protection covers
only transactions in New York
State but could affect scrolla of
dubious ownership coming into
the state from other areas.
To help scribes and other scroll
dealers to comply with the new
law, forms in Yiddish, Hebrew
and English are being prepared
by Stern for distribution by

Silberman's Statement
At AIPAC Conference
i- -
Mort Silberman, National
President of AIPAC (American
Israel Public Affairs Committee)
recently spoke at an AIPAC
Conference held after the Board
Retreat of the South County
Jewish Federation.
AIPAC, the American lobby
for the state of Israel, is an inde-
pendent organization funded and
staffed by Americans. It does not
answer to the Israeli government,
although it works in behalf of
Silberman, in bis presentation,
stressed the importance of
American Jews being politically
active. He emphasized that the
United States government pro-
vided over two and one half bil-
lion dollars in aid to Israel in this
last year alone. He also indicated
that the political forces in Wash-
ington are exceedingly sensitive
to the United Jewish Appeal
Campaign in that they carefully
monitor the totals. He firmly
stated that if the totals of the
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
decreases, there would most
probably be an equal decrease in
government support for Israel.
He pointed out that the Federa-
tion campaign is a barometer to
Washington politicians as to the
level of American Jewish support
for Israel.
Silberman was also emphatic
in urging American Jews to give
directly to the political cam-
paigns of candidates and to ac-
tion committees in the United
States so that the Jewish com-
munity as a whole is involved in
the political decision making
Concerning President Rea-
gan's recent peace proposal on
the Middle East, Silberman
touched upon its affirmative as-

pects. He said that we musn't ig-
nore the fact that the President
talked of an undivided Jeru-
salem, he clearly indicated that
the United States would not rec-
ognize the PLO and that there
should not be an independent
state on the West Bank, but
rather one tied to the existing
state of Jordan. Silberman was
careful not to be misunderstood
in supporting the Reagan Ad-
ministrations peace proposal in
its entirety, but argued that
where there are affirmative -as-
pects to a plan, the American
Jewish communities should not
automatically present a negative
-esDonse to the entire proposal.
Silberman also called upon
those present not to allow the
Administration's proposal for
peace in the Middle East or dis-
agreements over the recent Leb-
anon incursion to split the Jewish
community. He encouraged us to
take all measures necessary to
keep debate on a low key and civil
basis so that we can present a
united front as a Jewish com-
munity to the government of the
United States and to the world.
