(JTA) It was to have
been a triumphal reception
for Premier Menachem
Begin. More than 2,000
Jewish leaders, activists
and guests crowded into
the main ballroom of the
Bonaventure Hotel last
week to Celebrate with
the Premier the 50th Anni-
versary General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish
Federations. But it was not
to be.
Shortly before Begin was to
address the Assembly, his wife,
Aliza, died in Jerusalem. He im-
mediately flew back to Israel.
News of Mrs. Begin's death
spread like wildfire. At first there
was incredulity and disbelief,
someone was spreading a rumor,
it just couldn't be. Then as the
news sank in, a pall descended
over the audience. Some choked
back tears at the news of this un-
expected tragedy; others let go
and cried.

Coming Days Crucial?______
Why Begin Warned Egypt of Military Retaliation
JERUSALEM (ZINS) During the war in Leba-
non, Premier Menachem Begin had warned Egypt that a
severance of diplomatic ties with Israel could lay it open
to military retaliation on the grounds that Egypt had
violated the Camp David agreement, Opposition Labor
Party Chairman Shimon Peres states in a radio interview.
He said that the coming 100 days would be decisive for
domestic policies and would either produce a new coali-
tion, or a bill for early elections.
Likud MK Ronnie Milo said in a radio interview that
the coalition will have difficulty keeping itself together
during the winter Knesset session. He added that the
loyalty of some of the Likud partners particularly the reli-
gious parties, was questionable.

with the State of Israel.
There had been rumors since
the Assembly convened that
some of the local Jewish com-
munity leaders and even some of
the CJF leaders had not wanted
Begin to come to the Assembly at
this time. These rumors, as it
turned out, were entirely un-
founded. But it fed the morbid
curiosity of the general media
covering the Assembly and
helped spice their copy with so-
called behind the scenes develop-
ments. The real story the soli-
darity with the State of Israel, its
people and its Premier was ap-
parently considered dull, routine,

day afternoon and was greeted at
the Los Angeles International
Airport by Mayor Tom Bradley
who gave Begin the keys to the
city. The Premier, who was ac-
companied by his younger
daughter Leah, Ambassador
Moshe Arens, his chief of staff,
Yehiel Kadishai, and his personal
physician, Marvin Gottesman.
stayed at the Century Plaze
Hotel, some distance from the
Bonaventure where Begin was to
By midday Saturday, the
Bonaventure was a virtual for-
tress as U.S. secret service, Is-
raeli security, and hotel security
personnel, along with city police,
swarmed all over the area of the
ballroom. For more than an hour,
before people were allowed into
the ballroom, members of the po-
lice bomb squad, with specially
trained dogs, searched the area
for any hidden weapons and ex-
plosives. Dinner guests, dele-
gates and reporters had to go
through security gates like those
at airports.
Across the street from the
hotel, several hundred pro-Pales-
tinian old line left wingers and
anti-Khomeini demonstrators
carried placards and chanted slo-
gans denouncing Israel and
Ik'gin. They continued their up-
roar even after police informed
them that Begin would not be at
the hotel.
The demonstrators were kept
behind a solid line of oil drums
and a phalanx of mounted police.
Meanwhile, as people began to
filter into the ballroom, a group
of Flamenco costumed
troubadors serenaded diners in e
pool-side restaurant on the floor
below with Spanish folk songs
and a lusty rendition in Hebrew
of "Sholom Aleichem."
BEFORE THE official Assem-
bly banquet proceeding began,
the audience stood up for a
minute of silence as the news of
Mrs. Begin s death was an-
nounced from the podium. Arens,
who received standing ovations
at the beginning and conclusion
of his address, recounted some of
"the scars we in Israel bear from
the terrorists coming out of
Lebanon" before Israel launched
its "Peace for Galilee" operation.
He said that Israel's operation
had smashed the PLO infrastruc-
ture, thereby striking a blow for
peace in the region. Nevertheless,
Arens observed, Israel was
"criticized, vilified, calumnied
and judged" by the nations of the
world, and "we were subjected to
snap judgments" by the media
and its audiences. Much of what
the media related about Israel's
operation in Lebanon turned out
to be baseless, he said.
Arens was critical of "those
who counsel us to make conces-
sions.',' He declared that "the
wages of weakness in the Middle
East is destruction."
The achievements of the war in
Lebanon, he pointed out, in-
cluded peace for northern Israel.
"Children are going to school,
men and women are going to
work and the shelters are empty
for the first time, and that's how
it's going to be," he said to a
round of applause.
counted other achievements of
the war in Lebanon and each
achievement was greeted with a
round of applause. He noted that
Lebanon is now rising from seven
years of warfare and occupation
and that a new page is turning
"in the tragic history of that
country. Hopefully, Lebanon will
join the world democratic com-
munity and also be at peace with
Furthermore, the Soviet effort
to penetrate the Mideast in-
exorably has been thwarted and
its presumed superiority in mili-
tary weapons was bested by the
Israel Defense Force, Arens
noted. In addition, he said Is-
rael's operation in Lebanon is
now also perceived by the U.S. as
having aided the U.S. in the Mid-
Arens asserted that despite the
strained relations between the
U.S. and Israel in recent weeks,
the bonds of friendship between
the two countries have been
strengthened. Israel, he said,
would like to live in harmony
with the U.S. "but we are realis-
tic and know there are disagree-
ments" including differences over
U.S. arms to Arab states, and de-
mands on Israel for "territorial
But the Ambassador expressed
optimism that peace is achievable
and that, as a result of the des-
truction of the PLO's infrastruc-
ture there will be Palestinians
and Jordan who will eventually
enter into the peace process.
In Spirit of Adenauer
Kohl Says He'll Visit Israel
Germany's new Chancellor,
Helmut Kohl, has a sympa-
thetic attitude toward Is-
rael, according to Knesset
Speaker Menachem Savi-
dor who met with the Ger-
man leader last week. "He
told me he wanted to renew
the tradition of good rela-
tions started by Konrad
Adenauer, and I am sure
that he seriously meant ex-
actly that," Savidor told a
press conference here.
He said Kohl will definitely
visit Israel next year, but the
timing has yet to be decided. It
will not take place before West

Nevertheless, the Likud MK said
he discussed with the Chancellor
the itinerary and the issues that
will be raised at political talks
with Kohl in Jerusalem.
ASKED IF Premier Mena-
chem Begin is likely to get an in-
vitation to come to Bonn, Savi-
dor said it was too early to talk
about that. "Right now we are in
a stage of preparations for Kohl's
visit. Let us first concentrate on
According to Savidor, the
basic philosophy of the new Bonn
government, a coalition of Kohl's
Christian Democratic Union
(CDUI and the smaller Free
Democratic Party (FDP), favors
good relations with Israel. He
suggested that ties between the
two countries are likely to be
"closer than under the previous
Social Democratic government"
headed by Chancellor Helmut
Savidor said he did not discuss
with Kohl specifically the issue of
West German arms sales to Arab
countries. "What we did discuss
was the need for the western
world to see to it that no sophis-
ticated weapons will fall into the
hands of unreliable dictator-
ships." He said the issue of Jew-
ish settlements on the West Bank
was not raised during his talk
with Kohl. He claimed however
that the Chancellor largely shares
the Israeli view that the war in
Lebanon was essentially bene-
f ficial to peace prospects in the
Middle East and for the West.

Officials here could not offer a
possible timetable for the im-
pending talks. They have been
delayed until now because of wide
differences between the Israelis
and Lebanese over the character
and level of the negotiations. A
breakthrough had been expected
after Begin's meeting with Presi-
dent Reagan in Washington this
week. That meeting, scheduled
for next Friday, has been deferr-
ed, and no new date was an-
Yitzhak Shamir told the Cabinet
today that because of the turn of
events, Reagan's special envoy to
the Middle East, Philip Habib,
will not come to the region im-
mediately. He had been
scheduled to leave immediately
after Begin's discussions with the
President and Secretary of State
George Shultz. It is not known
now when Habib will arrive,
Shamir said, but meanwhile talks
continue with special envoy
Morris Draper who has been
mediating between the Israelis
and Lebanese for the past two
Shamir briefed the Cabinet on
what he called "intensive
preparatory contacts" with
Lebanese officials through
Draper. Energy Minister Yitzhak
Modai told reporters later that
Shamir had indicated "progress"

Accor4tag to reports here,
Israel is now ready to drop its
earlier demand that the talks
with Lebanon be held on the min-
isterial level so as to accentuate
their political nature. It is
prepared to have both delega-
tions headed by senior civil
servants. The Israeli choice, in
that case, would probably be
David Kimche, director general
of the Foreign Ministry.
BUT AS of last week the
Lebanese were insisting that
military men head the delega-
tions though they were willing to
appoint some ranking civilians to
their negotiating team.

Aliza Begin's Passing
Under any circumstances, the death of a wife of
nearly half a century is a profoundly sad occurrence.
In the case of Aliza Begin, the implications of her
passing go beyond her marriage relationship to a
Prime Minister of Israel.
Surely, Mr. Begin will suffer inordinate sorrow
complicated by feelings of guilt that he was not at his
beloved Aliza's side when she died last weekend. He
had gone on a ten-day tour of the United States
spurred by her assurance that she was all right, that
the tour was of supreme importance, and that she
would await his return.
And yet, when aides came to Mr. Begin's suite
in a Los Angeles hotel to announce the sad event, he
said simply, "I know. She is dead." To what extent
this sense of guilt will help the Prime Minister
through his bereavement is yet to be determined.
But in the background lie complicated matters:
the ongoing commission of inquiry into the Sabra
and Shatila massacre; the tragic occurrence in Tyre,
where near 90 Israelis lost their lives in the explosion
that brought Israeli military command headquarters
in southern Lebanon to the ground; the worsening
relationships with Egypt; and U .S. President
Reagan's determination to see a freeze on Israeli
settlements on the West Bank.
To this must be added Mr. Begin's clear
awareness that the United States, his country's only
ally, is now grimly determined to squeeze Israel back
into its pre-1967 borders. Let alone the fact that his
"Operation for Peace" in Lebanon has, from a public
relations point of view, boomeranged disastrously to
portray Israel as the mindless invader of an other-
wise "peace-prone" Arab nation.
There can be little doubt that Aliza Begin, a
severe asthmatic, did not react well to the scorn and
contumely heaped upon her husband as Prime
Minister, and that her health may have been sorely
compromised by this. Add to it his sense of guilt
that, fearing the worst, he had nevertheless left her
side so that his wife died without his presence, and it
is not possible to say just what Mr. Begin will do in
the months ahead.
Grief is a strange thing, and despite current
assurances to the contrary, the world Jewish com-
munity should not be surprised if the Prime Minister
packs it all in.
Will Andropov be Better?
The death of Leonid Brezhnev at the age of 75
by all expectation was to launch a struggle for power
behind the Kremlin walls. Instead, in a mere matter
of days, the Soviet Union had a new leader, Yuri
It does seem to us that the alleged outpouring of
Russian feeling at the death of Mr. Brezhnev was
largely staged. People were literally rounded up and
lined up in Moscow to wait their turn to pass by the
bier and pay their final respects.
More than anything, the people of the Soviet
Union remain as severely entrenched in economic
difficulty as ever before. It is political and social
Communist doctrine that has kept them brutally in
line that sent them, for example, on that trip to
Mr. Brezhnev's bier to say farewell. It was certainly i*
not love.
The ascent to power of Mr. Andropov therefore ijij
suggests a flicker of hope for a thaw in the freeze
internally and externally. Internally, a resolution for :
the Soviet people of the conflict between guns and
butter advocates. Externally, a return to the spirit of!;!;
detente between East and West, specifically, some
abatement in the nuclear arms race.
Whether or not Mr. Andropov can overcome his
past as chief of the KGB and in his new role offer his
people at home some relaxation from the oppressive
measures of a police state remains to be seen.
Whether or not he can cool down some of the heated
exchanges in Mr. Brezhnev's last weeks of angry
words directed at the West, especially President
Reagan, also remains to be seen.
So far as the Middle East is concerned, we are
heartened by reports that Mr. Andropov is not in hot,.
pursuit of Arab causes. He does not believe they can !j
be made to get together and act in unity whether |
for good or bad. His review of Syria's performance on
the field against Israel in Lebanon is a case in point.
Whether this means a more measured approach
to the Soviet Union's possible contribution to peace
in that beleaguered region also remains to be seen. At
least at this moment, Mr. Andropov suggests that
there can be reason for some hope.
Bad News Came in Bunches for Israel
IT WAS a week for bad news.
First came the explosion in Tyre,
killing an unprecedented number
of Israelis, the whole occurrence
complicated by the official failure
to pin down the cause, thus leav-
ing the Israeli government look-
ing befuddled at a time when it
must appear to be bold and as-
sertive if it is to wrest anything
at all from the operation in Leba-
Then came the death of Aliza
Begin. The Prime Minister, in
Los Angeles to address the
General Assembly of the Con-
ference of Jewish Federations, of
course cancelled the remainder of
his ten-day U.S. tour, including a
meeting with President Reagan
in Washington. And, perhaps,
more important, an address at
the First Baptist Church of Dal-
las, with Jerry Falwell in attend-
THE OLD saw is that when
things are going badly, they are
bound to get worse. This is cer-
tainly true so far as Israel is con-
cerned. What the Israelis need
more than anything else is a
reconciliation of the forces that
have begun to tear them apart
from within. Mr. Begin's
scheduled appearance in Dallas
would have stiffened his back for
the task before his countrymen.
(The meeting with President
Reagan would have been a mere
exercise in futility, including a
second dose of the bad manners
fed to him by Congress last time
he was on Capitol Hill.)
Perhaps the most obvious divi-
sive force at this moment, al-
though it was not intended to be,
is the commission of inquiry into
the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
For the Israelis, it is surely not
an act of hypocrisy, but rather of
For the rest of the world, which
contributed so heavily to the
pressure behind the formation of
the commission, it is an act of
hyprocrisy and, at the same time,
the fulfillment of its most anti-
Semitic purposes.
approach the deliberations of the
commission and anticipate the
conclusions of the inquiry fully
aware of this, as well as in terms
of Middle East Realpolitik. Thus
far, however, it is a foregone con-
clusion that they have adopted
ah emotional tone and downbeat
intellectual posture not unlike
our own in Vietnam. That is too
The prospects here suggest a
national Israeli disaster far out of
proportion to the post-Vietna-
mese in America for reasons
rooted in the difference in the
magnitude of resources available
to the Israelis to cushion the ef-
fect in comparison with what was
available to us.
If nothing else, our national in-
difference to the unveiling of the
memorial to the veterans of the
Vietnamese war last weekend in
Washington, with President Rea-
gan's bulvanish snubbing of the
event, shows that resources or no
resources, even we have still not
managed to reconcile our own
disaster there.
WHAT THEN must face the
Israelis as the full impact of a
world ignorant of the forces that
drove them into Lebanon in the
first place, and that now leaves
the world a willing victim of
Palestinian propaganda, finally
hits the Israelis at home ?
But the commission of inquiry
is only one divisive element in the
picture needing reconciliation.
Other divisive elements internal
to the nation include outlandish!y
vocal Israelis who are willing to
pay any price for what they con-
sider to be peace with the Arabs,
when it is clear that peace with
the Arabs will come only when
Israel ceases to exist or, at best,
is maneuvered into accepting
the geopolitical facticity of the
borders of 1948 which, by attri-
tion, will lead to the same thing.
The reason for this is that there
are two Arab forces at work
against Israel today. One is
Marxist as espoused by, say.
Yasir Arafat, George Habash and
Libya's Qhadaffi The other is
fundamentalist Islam, shared by
such diverse actors on the Middle
East stage as Iran's Khomeini
and the royal family of Saudi
Arabia. In either case, nothing
but the disappearance of Israel
will satisfy them.
IT IS therefore a delusion from
which Israel's doves suffer who

Robert Segal
Ron Sees Reds Under Nuclear Freeze Beds
Applauded throughout the
world as the 1982 winners of the
Nobel Peace Price, Mr. Gunnar
Myrdal of Sweden and Alfonso
Garcia Kobles of Mexico, must be
dismayed to learn that accord-
ing to President Reagan's evalu-
ation of nuclear freeze advocates
the pair is "deliberately at-
tempting to weaken the United
States" or else is misguided.
Nor are they to be counted
among "the sincere, honest
people who want peace."
Stashed into the same crucible
of shame, if you accept Mr.
Reagan's indictment, are all the
members of the Nobel selection
committee. In their statement
announcing the dual awards, that
committee cited Mrs. Myrdal and
Garcia Robles as two who best
represent the spirit of protests
against nuclear arms that have
been kindled this year.
The prize-winners will receive
their awards Dec. 10. That
splendid ceremony will provide a
sharp contrast to Mr. Reagan's
verbal assault on peace-seekers
during a political rally in
Columbus, Ohio, early in
October. In Columbus, the Presi-
dent said that people supporting
the nuclear freeze movement are
Myrdal and Mr. Garcia Roble* '
then, who are these dupes? The*
list is long and impressive. It in-
cludes 20 percent of our Senators,
well over a hundred members of
the House of Representatives,
hundreds of Jewish, Protestant,
and Catholic spiritual and lay
leaders, 97 Nobel laureates, and
scores of nuclear scientists and
doctors sharing grave concern
about the probability of total de-
struction of our planet if the
nuclear arms race continues.
Along with this honor roll of
freeze proponents go the nearly
20 million members of 25
American organizations now rep
resented in the Citizens Against
Nuclear War.
About the same time the Presi-
dent was faulting these legions of
concerned Americans, Sen.

CUd Fox Andropov Expected to Continue Brezhnev's Policies
West -European experts be-
lieve tile new Soviet leader-
ship will continue the late
Leonid Brezhnev's cautious
policy in the Middle East
but will crack do#fl harder
on dissidents at home, es-
pecially Jews seeking the
right to emigrate.
Yuri Andropov, the former
head of the KGB who succeeded
Brezhnev afe First Secretary of
the Soviet Communist Party, and
Konstantin Chernenko, the Polit-
buro member who nominated him
for that office, are both known to
lack confidence in the ability of
the Arab countries to unite and
act together. It is their conviction
that the main external danger to
the Soviet Union lies in the West.
perts say, the new leadership will
continue Brezhnev's policy in the
Middle East of carefully avoiding
anv maior confrontation either
with Israel or the U.S. The Soviet
Union will continue to supply
Syria and other Soviet client
states in the area with arms. But
the flow will not be increased nor
will it be upgraded equalitatively.
According to one French intel-
ligence source, "It now seems
even more unlikely than before
that Syria will obtain the top
grade combat planes and missiles
which it had been demanding
LEONID BREZHNEV: the old cautious policies
Former KGB Chief Said to Plan
Harder Crackdown on Dissidents
Even before Brezhnev's death
last week at the age of 75, Syrian
and Egyptian diplomats and
army officers complained of
"tepid support" of the Arab
cause in the Kremlin. Andropov
and Chernenko were often named
in that connection. In general,
the successors to Brezhnev are
elderly men and loathe to under-
take "an adventurous course."
They are expected to try to calm
the belicose instincts of their
Syrian and Libyan clients.
THE EXPERTS believe that
for the time being, Moscow will
try to achieve a status quo in the
Middle East to preserve its in-
terests and influence in the region
without expanding them. Some
Western diplomats believe that
Brezhnev's death has given the
U.S. and Israel a chance to at-
tempt to find a global solution to
the Middle East conflict without
Russian interference. But given
the unpredictability of Soviet
politics, the "period of grace"
may not last longer than a year.
The prompt succession of An-
dropov in fact surprised many
Kremlin-watchers who had ex-
pected a prolonged war of succes-
sion between Brezhnev's heirs for
the top leadership post. Some
predicted that a nominal suc-
cessor would be appointed until
the power struggle was resolved.
But Andropov appears to be a
strong man. At 68, he is known to
be backed by the military estab-
lishment, the secret service and
the police.
From 1967-82 he headed the
Soviet Security Committee which
is responsible for the KGB and
the police. Recently, he bested
Chernenko, 71, for the No. 2 spot
in the Soviet establishment, the
post of Central Committee Secre-
tary left vacant by the death of
Andrei SusloV earlier this year.
ANDROPOV IS known to
have been among those Politburo
members who frequently com-
plained of the relatively
"moderate" course Brezhnev
tried to steer on human rights.
He believed those "lenient" poli-
cies allowed the dissident move-
ment to fourish. Experts believe
that given a free hand, he will
ruthlessly suppress any internal
challenge to the Soviet system.
His top priority is said to be a
quiet, stable social and political
climate within the USSR. Ac-
cordingly, dissidents are ex-
pected to suffer even more than
in the past, particularly if they
are perceived to be connected to
any foreign interests, such as
By JTA Report
Aliza Was Menachem's Friend,
Partner of Near- 50 Years
Aliza Begin, wife of Pre-
mier Manachem Begin,
died last week at the
Hebrew University-Hadas-
lah Medical Center here.
She was 62. The cause of
death was given as heart
failure. Begin interrupted
his visit to the United
States to fly home.
Funeral services were held
Monday on the Mount of Olives
and were private. The Begin
family requested no media cover-
age. Officials said Deputy
Premier Simcha Ehrlich is ex-
pected to be in charge of the
government while Begin observes
the seven day mourning period
EHRLICH said, in a brief
eulogy at Sunday's Cabinet
session that Aliza Begin was "a
personality in her own right .
She was Menachem Begins
friend and partner in life for close
to 50 years and travelled with
him the long path full of dangers,
full of deeds, of suffering and of
achievements Aliza Begin
was fine woman, of sterling qual-
ities ... We shall never forget
Mrs. Begin was hospitalized on
Oct. 4 for breathing difficulties
and was in the intensive care unit
for the past few weeks. Her
illness caused Begin to postpone
a planned trip to Zaire last
month. But he left for the United
States as scheduled last Thurs-
day at her urging and because
Mrs. Begin was showing some
Aliza Begin was born on April
20, 1920 in Drohobycz, a small
town in Poland where her father,
Or. Zvi Arnold, was an attorney
and a leader in the Zionist Revi-
sionist movement. She was one of
twin daughters. Her sister was to
perish in the Holocaust.
SHE MET her future husband,
Menachem, when she was 17. Her
father invited the then recent law
graduate of Warsaw University
to their home for dinner. Begin
was at the time a leader of Betar,
the Revisionist youth movement.
The young couple corresponded
and were married two years later,
on May 29,1939. They took their
vows both dressed in Betar uni-
World War II broke out on
Sept. 1 when German armies in-
vaded Poland. The Begins joined
a stream of Jewish refugees
trying to reach the Rumanian
border but got no further than
Vilna. When the Russian army
occupied that part of Poland,
Aliza left for Palestine alone. Be-
gin, who had organized Revision-
ist party headquarters in Vilna,
was arrested and sent to forced
labor camps. He was released a
year later and joined his wife in
Jerusalem. .
His activities in Palestine soon
made him a wanted man by the
British Mandate authorities.
Aliza and her husband lived un-
derground for five years, moving
from hide-out to hide-out under a
variety of aliases. During those
difficult years their children were
born Benyamin Zeev, Hasya
and Leah. They finally settled in
a modest ground floor flat in Tel
Aviv which was their home until
May, 1977 when Begin was
elected Premier. They moved to
the Prime Ministers residence in
the Rehavia section of Jerusalem.
MRS. BEGIN remained out of
the public eye during the 30 years
that her husband was leader of
the opposition in Israel's parlia-
ment. He was Prime Minister for
two years before she granted her
first press interview. She never
expressed opinions on public
issues. She was however active in
service for handicapped persons,
particularly wounded soldiers.
Mrs. Begin had suffered from
asthma since childhood. Her con-
dition deteriorated recently,
requiring hospitalization. She
will be buried near the graves of
two underground fighters of Be-
gin's Irgun and the Stern Group
who committed suicide shortly
before they were to be executed

Report from Hollywood
George Burns Plans to Make it to 100 Yearsand More
HOLLYWOOD George Burns, now past age 86, will
star in the Warner Bros, remake of the 1956 Alec Guin-
ness movie, "The Lady Killers." He will also appear this
fall on CBS and NBC in a two-hour contemporary drama,
"Two of a Kind" and in "George Burns and Other Sex
Symbols," a one-hour special for NBC, with Linda Evans
and Bernadette Peters at his side.
The eternally young man plans to continue his concerts
and personal appearances with engagements throughout
October and November in Florida, San Francisco and
Atlantic City. The tour follows the release of his latest
album, "Young at Heart," featuring 10 songs.
BURNS, who was born Nathan Birnbaum, in New York
City, teamed up with Grade Allen in the 1920's, made his
debut in motion pictures in 1932 in "The Big Broadcast,"
actually portraying himself in a guest starring role as he
did later in a number of none-toQ-profound screen
comedies. While an established star in vaudeville, radio
and on television, he only came into his own in the cinema
after his old friend and colleague, Jack Benny, died and,
on the spur of a moment, he took over his role in the
filmization of Neil SimonV'The Sunshine Boys."
This was in 1975. Burns was hailed for bis brilliant
characterization. During the past seven years he has
portrayed key roles in "Oh, God!," "Oh, God, Book II,"
"Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Just
You and Me, Kid," and in "Going in Style."
George will be presented with the Man of the Year
Award, for which he was chosen by editors and publishers
of U.S. magazines.
Last, not least, George Burns currently is writing
"How to Be 100 and Mora."

Unfulfilled Fears
Saudi Investors are Quite Conservative
Cults On the Rise
Can We Prevent It?
The explosive increase in
the price of oil following the
oil embargo of 1973-1974
and the Iran-Iraq war of
1979 led to fears that a tor-
rent of petrodollars to the
United States would enable
the oil-rich Arab states to
buy up all of America.
These fears have proved
thus far. at least to be exag-
gerated. It was true that the
governments of Saudi Arabia,
Kuwait and the United Arab
Emirates were amassing sur-
pluses in the tens of billions of
dollars, but their investment
policies have proved to be most
conservative. Saudi Arabia has
not been interested in buying
American land or banks or cor-
porate stocks or bonds.
There are, of course, flam-
boyant private Arab investors
like Adnan Khashoggi who seem
intent on buying banks or hotels
or shopping centers, but their re-
sources are tiny compared with
Arab governments. Saudi Arabia
instead keeps billions on deposit
in American banks, owns huge
quantities of U.S. Treasury
securities, or lends huge sums to
blue chip corporations like
KUWAIT, more adventurous
than Saudi Arabia, until recently
has instructed its American
agents not to buy more than five
percent of the stock of any one
corporation because SEC rules
require public disclosure of such
holdings. But Kuwait, unlike
Saudi Arabia, apparently did not
seek to enhance its image or in-
fluence in the U.S. It was ap-
parently interested only in
profitable and safe investments.
The purchase by Kuwait of Santa
Fe International Company for
$2.5 billion represented a change
of policy and signaled the start of
a purchasing drive bv which
Kuwait would own a multi-na-
tional oil company.
Saudi Arabia, however, has
political goals in the U.S. and
seeks to use its billions of dollars
to help achieve them. Its influ-
ence derives from five different
Its huge oil fields (and still
larger oil reserves) are the main
source of supply for our NATO
allies and Japan. Although Saudi
oil now constitutes only 3.7 per-
cent of the oil consumed in the
U.S., its wealth has won influen
tial supporters. Any countrj
which can call Exxon, Mobil.
Texaco and Standard Oil of Cali-
fornia its great and good friends
has powerful allies.
The $8 billion of U.S. goods
that Saudi Arabia is now pur-
chasing each year builds a power-
ful cadre of American corpora-
tions dependent on Saudi good-
will. Even the oil glut has failed
to slacken the Saudi thirst for
American goods and services.
The huge construction con-
tracts awarded each year to
American giants like Bechtel,
Fluor and others create still
another bodv of American cor-
porate supporters. The fact that
American firms must compete for
these contracts with construction
companies all over the world only
makes them more vulnerable to
Arab governments' pressure. The
drying up of construction in the
U.S. serves to make the Saudi
contracts even more attractive;
some of these exceed $1 billion

estimated at least S25 billion.
These massive deposits are held
on an extremely short basis and

like Chase, Citibank and Bank of
America is intense. Similarly stiff
competition extends to large in-

In Retrospect
Charges of Anti-Semitism in Rome Down-Played
ROME The month
iiat has passed since the

gue here which took the fife
f a two-year-old child and
Lunded 33 men, women
[nd children has witnessed
tremendous outpouring of
,rrow and sympathy for
Jewish community.
[ft comes from all levels of the
ttbolic Church hierarchy: from
iy leaden and humble
Lrishioners; from non-Catholic
Christians and from Italians in
I walks of life. But coupled with
i deeply felt shock and grief is
[sense ofconsufion.
IT IS visible in the reactions of
ople who are unable to explain
magnitude of anger and bit-
ess expressed by Italian
iwry in the immediate atter-
ath of the tragedy, not only for
i perpetrators who have still
hi been identified or appre-
inded but against the Pope,
|e Vatican, the highest govern-
ed officials and the media.
I When the bloodshed and terror
tded, Homes 15.000 Jews with-
ew literally into themselves,
hey chose to mourn alone,
Ijecting the offerings of condol-
bce as they did official tributes
[ flowers.
Jn their initial shock, they saw
r murderous attack outside the
ndmark synagogue as a direct
suit ot a climate created by
Jents that preceded it: the au-
ence granted by Pope John
kul II to Palestine Liberation
fganization chief Yasir Arafat:

are wondering, in retrospect
hether the cause-and-effeet jux-
Iposition of events is as clear-
It as initially it appeared to be.
|eanwhile, as both communities
rive to unravel their feelings, a
pnciliation has been taking"
not worked hard enough for
justice and peace." A delegation
of Polish bishops and priests,
themselves concentration camp
survivors, visited the Jewish
wounded at the Fatebenefratelli
Hospital near the main syna-
The delegation came to Rome
for the beatification of Maximil-
ian Kolbe who offered his life in
exchange for a Polish father
doomed to death by starvation at
Auschwitz. Msgr. Kazimiev
Majdariskij, Bishop of Stettin
who was confined to Dachau from
1939-1946, recalled that the child
slain by the terrorists in Rome.
Stefano Tache, reminded him of
the Jewish children in Dachau a
generation ago.
IN FACT, it was iust 39 vears
ago, on a Sabbath in October,
that the grandparents of little
Stefano, and his own parents,
then children themselves, and his
aunts, uncles and cousins, were
deported by the Nazis to Au-
schwitz. Of the two large fami-
lies, only 15 survived.
There is a strong temptation to
bitterness over this tragic irony.
The two children who lived
through Auschwitz to become
Stefano s parents, also lived to
see one child murdered and
another, Stefano's sister,
wounded in a senseless attack on
Jews. But should the rage be
directed at fellow-Italians?
In all of Europe, the modern
Italian state has been among the
least infected by anti-Semitism.
The Italian people have not been
and are not now anti-Semitic.
With respect to racism, Musso-
lini was a reluctant partner of
Hitler. While political pressures
instigated the blustering but
weak Italian dictator to promul-
gate his version of the Nurem-
burg laws during World War II,
Italians by and large tried to help
their Jewish neighbors.
SOME JEWS recalled, after
the synagogue attack, that
Italian soldiers gave haven to
French Jews fleeing the Vichy
regime which only too willingly
collaborated in the Nazi deporta-
Today there are also political
interests at work which, through
alliances with extremist Arab
groups and the more doctrinaire
sections of the Communist-
dominated Italian trade union
federation, try to exploit anti-
Semitism. But most of the Italian
population has remained immune
to these attempts.
So Italians ask: Why do the
Jews insist that the terrorist
attack would no.t have occurred
but for a carefully prepared
climate of anti-Semitism? The
terrorists almost certainly were
Arabs, probably Palestinians,
probably members of Abu
Nidal's fanatical Al Assifa which

involved, they say. Morover, ter-
rorism is one thing, a plague of
the times which has caused death
and destruction not only to Jews;
anti-Semitism is something else,
an ancient prejudice discredited
by decent people.
So why were the Jews so quick
to cast blame? their fellow Ital-

ians ask. Is criticism of the
policies of Premier Menachem
Begin and his Defense Minister

anti-Semitism and thereby be
made exempt from all criticism?
Many Jews the world over are
among the severest critics of the
Begin-Sharon government and
they can hardly be accused of
anti-Semitism, the Italians say.
The confusion perhaps steins
from the belief that because
Italian Jewry reacted as one in its
grief and anger over the attack,
they are a monolithic community
In fact, Italian Jews rarely speak
with one voice but in many, often
contradictory voices. When emo-

Oc/f of Respect
Reagan Pressure Expected
To be Cooled for a While
(JTA) Premier Mena-
chem Begins sudden re-
turn to Israel because of the
death of his wife Saturday
has prevented the Reagan
Administration from put-
ting personal pressure on
the Israeli Premier to freeze
the establishment of Jewish
settlements on the West
Bank. Begin is not ex-
pected to return to the U.S.
Reagan made it clear at his na-
tionally televised press confer-
ence last Thursday night that he
would discuss his request for a
settlement freeze with Begin
when the two were to meet this
Friday as scheduled. "I'm sure
that he and I will have some talks
on that as well as other sub-
jects," Reagan said in response
to a question on the settlements.
"We do think that it is a hind-
rance to what we are trying to ac-
complish for the peace move-
HE OUTLINED these objec
tives as bringing the Arab states
and the Arab leaders and the Is-
raeli leaders together at the
negotiating table to resolve the
difference between them and that
begins with them recognizing
Israel's right to exist."
The American effort received
support from Egyptian Foreign
Minister Kamal Hassen Ali, who
after a two-and-a-half hour meet-
ing with Secretary of State
George Shultz at the State De-
partment last Friday, said he
hoped that Begin's visit to
Washington would "mark a be-
ginning of a change of policy and
Ali said that "it is unfortunate
that at a time when the United
States government was actively
seeking broader participation in
the peace process, Israel rejected
the President's (September 1
peace) initiative and declared its
intention to build new settle-
ments in the occupied West
Rank." He said that Israel plans
to settle 1.3 million people on the
West Bank over the next 30 years
and charged this would result ir
the "annexation" of the territor
ies. 1*
MEANWHILE, Reagan at his
press conference again ruled out
using sanctions against Israel to
force a freeze. "I don't think it
would be good diplomacy to be
threatening or anything," he
said. "And I don't believe it is
necessary. I think that all of us
recognize that peace is the
ultimate goal."
When it was suggested that
the U.S. cut its aid by the
amount Israel spends on its West
Bank settlements, estimated at
$100 million by the questioner,
Reagan said he did not know
what the figure was although he
could find out. But he said, it
would be neither "helpful" nor
"fruitful" to discuss this possi-
He noted that "progress" was
being made in bringing more
Arab states into the negotiations,
as demonstrated by what he
called the "unique" visit to him
by a delegation of the Arab
League last month. "There's a
need now for Israel to itself rec-
ognize that they must play a part
in making it possible for negotia-
tions," he said. He indicated that
a settlement freeze would also
help Lebanese President Amin
Gemayel in his task of reconciling
Lebanese Moslem groups to his
new government.
ALI, after the meeting with
Shultz, said that Egypt wants
the peace process started at
Camp David to "flourish and
widen as to encompass every one
in the area." He said Egypt was
"deeply concerned over the loss
of momentum" but praised
Reagan's peace initiative as a
"positive step toward a just,
lasting and comprehensive peace
in the Middle East."
Reagan at his press conference
said that he is still "optimistic"
and that is why he had named
Philip Habib earlier Thursday as
his special representative to the
Middle East. Habib will work
with Morris Draper, Deputy As-
sistant Secretary of State for
Near East and South Asian Af-
fairs, who is now in Beirut, on the
negotiations for the removal of
foreign forces from Lebanon, and
with Richard Fairbanks, who has
been dealing with the autonomy
negotiations, on these negotia-
tions as well as the Reagan peace

Meanwhile, it was unclear
today when Habib would be.
going to the Middle East. Origi-
nally he had not been scheduled
to go there until after the Begin
visit to Washington.
ON LEBANON, Reagan said
he could not say when the U.S.
marines could leave that country.
He said they and the other mem-
bers of the force, the French and
Italian troops, would stay there
until the U.S. could accomplish
two goals, first, when it was clear
that the Gemayel government
was able to "stabilize and be able
to take charge of its borders,"
and secondly, the withdrawal of
the Syrian, Palestine Liberation
Organization and Israeli forces
from Lebanon which Reagan said
the U.S. was working to accom-
plish as "fast as we can."
Ali, who said he discussed the
Lebanese situation with Shultz,
told reporters that Egypt "would
like to see s speedy withdrawal of
Israeli and other foreign forces
from Lebanon. It is imperative
that no obstacle be put in the im-
plementation of this undertaking.
He said the Egyptian Ambas-
sador to Israel had been recalled
to Cairo after the September Bei-
rut massacre and would return to
Israel when there was a change in
the "atmosphere," and it was
"clear" that Israel would with-
draw its forces from Lebanon.
ALI. who called briefly on
Reagan Friday to give him a
letter from Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak, said he and
Shultz also discussed the Taba
dispute. He said Egypt wants a
"peaceful settlement" of this dis-
pute with Israel and hopes it can
be accomplished with the help of
the U.S.
The Egyptian offficial said he
also urged Shultz that the U.S.
should begin talks with the PLO.
But he said that during his meet-
ing with a PLO official in Paris
recently, the PLO had not offered
to recognize Israel in return for
Israel recognizing it as has been

hold that peace with Araby is
possible on more reasonable
terms. That they are linked to the
most vocal pressures surround-
ing the commission of inquiry
into Sabra and Shatila makes
both forces in Israel today such a
potential disaster.
To this divisiveness must be
added those Jews who, for exam-
ple, in America join Arab pro-
testors in common cause as they
did outside the Los Angeles hotel
where the Council of Jewish
Federations met for its General
Assembly over the weekend and
which Prime Minister Begin was
to address until the sudden can-
cellation of his U.S. tour.
These American Jews are the
ones who give America's enemies
of Israel the incentive to get even
tougher with that beleaguered
nation than otherwise. These
Jews contribute to driving a
lethal wedge into an already suf-
ficiently polarized American
Jewish community that needs no
further polarization on the issue
of Israel and what the media are
now characterizing as Israel's al-
legedly "tarnished image."
IN ESSENCE, these Jews give
cause to the media and others
to refer to a "divided" American
Jewish community, when the
division, at least at this point,
a significantly media-made ph*.
nomenon and which they en-
courage by their union with Arab
protestors to feed upon itself
more luxuriously.
It is not that U.S. foreign
policy can be expected to change
according to the unanimity of
American Jewish opinion. But
the prospect of an allegedly
divided American Jewish opinion
can certainly make its present
crash course all the easier to
maintain on the road to disaster.
Of all the bad news last week"
the death of Aliza Begin may
have been the worst reckoned in
these terms. For it is the Prime
Minister who best holds at bay
the deleterious impact of Israeli
self-examination. There is no tell-
ing how much her death may now
drive him to throw in the towel as
an act of resignation and contri-
tion in deference to her memory.
Should that occur, woe is 'it*,
all, in Israel and in America.
There are too many of us ready to
give up as it is. Mr. Begins own
steadfastness of purpose is what
has made him the protestors'
enemy in the first place and the
nemesis of the traitors in the
capitals of the Western world af-
ter that.

He added, however, "This does

comparable network for human
services for our own people and
for the disadvantage^ of this
continent and beyond," Citrin
To show how well the
Federations system has done,
Citrin offered some comparison
data 1932 versus 1982. "As a
base line reference," he said, in
1932, the Jewish population in
North America was 4,380,000; in
1982, 6,263,000, an increase of
some 43 percent. In 1932, there
were 125 Federations although
the majority of these were welfare
funds only and not full-fledged
Federations. Today, there are
200 full-fledged Federations in
North America.
Continuing, Citrin pointed out
that there were 3,500 synagogues
in North America in 1932 and
5,400 today; 2,000 Jewish schools
in 1932 and 2,500 today. Within
those numbers, there were 12 day
schools in 1932, compared to 600
today; student enrollment num-
bered 200,000 in 1932, compared
to 360,000 today.
IN 1932, Citrin said, Jews in
North America raised $17 million
in their annual campaign; in
1982, Jews in North America will
have raised through Federation
campaigns, including Project
Renewal, $640 million. Starting
from an organization of 13
Federations in 1932, it has grown
to 200 Federations today.
What of the next 50 years?
Citrin asked. What will be the
North American agenda and how
will it be implemented? The
approach to this will require "a
new element of creative and
expansive thinking." It will
require, Citrin added, experi-
mentation, blazing new trails,
taking risks and bringing to bear
"the full force of our people and
dollar resources" in "new and
daring ways."
The first priority on the agenda
of total concerns in Jewish
education, Citrin said. "Without
Jewish education, there is no
Jewish people, he observed. "Our
best bulwark against assi-
milation, our best nourishment
for healthy Federations and
healthy Jewish communities is
Jewish education."
WHAT WOULD it mean,
Citrin asked, "if we could provide
a free Jewish education for all
Jewish children and adults?
Suppose we had in North
America Jewish day schools of all
persuasions of the caliber of an
Eton or Exeter in every major
Jewish community? What an
impact this would have for our
Another priority on the agenda
of Jewish concerns, Citrin said, is
the relationship between North
American Jewry and Israel once
"true and enduring peace" has
been established in that land.
"Think about the possibilities of
our understanding and working
with each other in the context of
peace and not war," he told the
"First, of course, to save the
threatened Jewish communitiea
of the world wherever they now
are or might be in the future
Ethiopia, Syria, Soviet Russia -,
who can hear what we have
heard? The longing, the courage,
the privation, the reaifirmation of
their resolve that
strengthens us in our commit
ment to aid and support heroes
like Anatoly Sharansky id
their struggle. That is our
struggle, to save these im-
prisoned people and bring them
to Israel before it is too late,
before a spiritual cultural
Holocaust will have lost for us
for all time this great chance."
CONTINUING, Citrin also
called upon the audience to
"think about the possibility of
developing the network of know-
how and investment between the
affluent and experienced Jewish
communities of the world and
Israel to help bring to full fruition
the industrial and economic
opportunities available there a
people-to-people link, not just a
dollar link. We have our first
glimpse of the power of this kind
of relationship in Project Ren-
In the final analysis, Citrin
said, the agendas for the years
ahead, "in reality, are the same
agendas that we have had for the
last 4,000 years: a yearning to

Bleak Future for Marriage-Prone
Seen to Need Better Than Singles Bars
Herman and Zeldin Return
As Rainberry Bay Co-Chairmen
It all began when mem-
bers of the Jewish Educa-
tion Council of Seattle, at a
meeting a little over two
years ago, projected a bleak
future of fewer and fewer
Jewish children to educate
unless the growing rate of
mixed marriages among
Seattle's young Jews could
h>e slowed down.
They decided that one way to
reach that objective was to make
it possible for more marriageable .
Jewish young men and women to J
meet and get acquainted under
auspices more dignifie*iaThan sin-
gles bars. They noted that in
current circumstances of Jewish
mobility and Jewish community
fragmentation, many Jewish sin-
kjles are neither members of a
synagogue nor involved in Jew-
ish community activities.
Mauroy Will
Visit Israel
Minister Pierre Mauroy will visit
Israel next year and attend the
twinning ceremonies between the
French city of Lille and Israel's
Safed. Mauroy told Safed Mayor
Josef Nahmias, with whom he
met earlier this week, that he will
fvisit Israel as soon as possible
] after the countrywide forthcom-
ing municipal elections next
March. Mauroy is Mayor of Lille.
Nahmias said the Prime Minis-
ter also told him that the Franco-
Israel dialogue will soon resume
and that the Franco-Israel
cultural commission, whose sche-
duled meeting last June was
ll*jslponed by the French govern-
jment because of the war in
[ Lebanon will soon be reconvened.
I Violinists Perform
of the world's greatest violinists
will perform at a week-long
"Hubere-mania" here between
Dec. 1L' to 19 to mark the centen-
ary of the birth of Bronislaw
lluberman. the violin virtuoso
who founded the Israel Philhar-
|K>ni<- Orchestra 50 years ago.
So they set about developing a
Jewish Singles Computer Dating
Service. Its JEC sponsors assert
that the JSS can be credited with
at least five known marriages,
according to the Jewish Trans-
cript of Seattle.
THEY REPORTED that since
the JSS began functioning, near-
ly 1,000 Jewish singles from
Portland, Ore. to Vancouver,
British Colombia have joined the
computer service. The JEC has
received many glowing reports of
male-female friendships made I
through the dating service.
Kay Pomerantz, JEC director, |
said most Jews enrolling in the
JSS are 24 years old and older,
with many in their late 20s and
early 30s. She said JSS partici-
pants currently are evenly
divided between men and women.
She said many singles are par-
ticipating from smaller towns,
where the problem of finding
suitable Jewish dates is most
She also reported that one
couple who met and married
through the JSS were both from
Seattle. The others have all been
inter-city linkages. The first mar-
riage evolving from the JSS serv-
ice was a Portland-Tacoma link-
ing. A couple married this sum-
mer involves a second marriage
for the woman, who has children
from her first marriage. The new
husband is from another city and
his bride said that without the
help of the JSS, she almost cer-
tainly would never have met him.
MS. POMERANTZ said there
are probably other marriages in
which the JSS was a factor that
the JEC sponsors have no in-
formation about-
Sandy Dorr is a volunteer who
look over the job of JSS director*
last November. She said that;
since then, the JSS has almost'
doubled its list of names by in-
creased publicity and member-
ship expansion efforts.
Ms. Dorr said that the stigma
once attached to the idea of dat-
ing by computer does not apply
to the JSS service. She said more
Jews with a wider range of in-
terests and more age groups are
starting to use the service. She
reported a recent trip to Van-
couver where she met with local
rabbis to discuss the JSS. She re-
ported that Vancouver Jewish
men want to meet Seattle Jewish
Ms. Dorr said the JSS has be-
come an accepted way for Jewish
singles to meet singles of the op-
posite sex, particularly for those
who would not ordinarily attend
events for singles or general Jew-
ish community programs. She re-
ported she had contacted all of
the local synagogue offices and
the Jewish Community Center
and that all of the offices are
directing inquiries from Jewish
single newcomers to the JSS. She
said the JSS sends application,
forms to the newcomers.
California, who has lived in Seat-
tle for eight years, has never
made any special effort to meet
eligible Jewish women, has not
been affiliated with a synagogue
and has not attended Jewish
functions, Ms. Door reported.
Now he is thinking seriously
about getting married and has
found the computer service an ef-
fective way to meet Jewish
women. He said that in only
about two months, he has re-
ceived the names of about ten
Jewish single women.
According to the Transcript,
the JEC has a private fund made
up of contributions from several
Jewish "angels," who subsidize
the dating service and no public
funds are used. Ms. Dorr stressed
that the service is absolutely con-
fidential and participants see
only the names of other persons
with whom names are exchanged.
Names are fed into the com-
puter in Los Angeles and the
service provides up to five names
and telephone numbers each
time, and three computer runs, at
two-months intervals, for any
Jewish single, 18 years and older,
for a $20 fee.
A newsletter is sent out with
each computer run, giving par-
ticipants undated information
and informal news about the
service. Ms. Dorr said the JSS
has a telephone system which
lakes messages around the clock.

Can Prove Leo Frank Innocent'
Now Atlanta Petitions for His Pardon
The words are stunning for the
story they tell and how they came
to be written. They read: "On be-
half of the Atlanta Jewish
Federation, the American Jewish
Committee, and the Anti-Defa-
mation league of B'nai B'rith,
the undersigned representatives
of these organizations respect-
fully request that you and the
meml>ers of the State Board of
Pardons and Paroles grant a full
and complete pardon exonerating
lien Frank of any guilt for the
crime for which he was convicted
by the Superior Court of Fulton
County, in 1913."
There are some who don't
know who Leo Frank was. He
was. like so many Jews of the
day. a relatively unremarkable
man, who lead a relatively unre-
markable existence in Atlanta,
OA. Yet due to a classic set of
nrcumstances he became the
focal point of the most remarka-
ble event in American Jewish
history. I,eo Frank was lynched
by a howling Georgia mob that
dragged him from jail.
THE LYNCHING set off a de-
bale which even today can be
passionate, hateful, and to some,
fear-inducing. The event sparked
the founding of the Anti-Defama-
tion League, and brought into the
air some of the great guns of
Jewish legal artillery, including
me of the founders of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, the emi-
nent jurist Louis Marshall.
Yet, some do not know Leo
Frank. However, in Atlanta,
there are many who do. They re-
member the trial, they remember
the Chief of Police going through
the Jewish quarter telling them
that unless they stayed indoors
he couldn't guarantee their safe-
These people, many of whom
had just recently risked life and
limb on the high seas to save
their futures from the Czar won-
dered, if only for a brief, terror-
stricken while, if their futures
were to end in a town until then
known only for what General
Sherman did to it. In that brief
moment, Leo Frank lost his life in
modern America's only pogrom.
THE EVENTS are the stuff
from which novels grow. In fact
novels, historical articles, lec-
tures, and movies did grow from
the Frank case. Few trials in his-
tory have caused such sustained
interest and consternation. It
was a script made for Hollywood
a Jewish factory manager, a
black during segragation days, a
pretty white Protestant child, a
demogogic politician and a con-
sious stricken Governor.
One thing was for sure, Mary
Phagen was dead, but who did it?
Was it the black man, to get
money for drink? Was it the Jew,
to get money to go to the brothel
across the street? Much was sus-
pect throughout the trial. In fact
the only other certainty besides
Phajren's death was Frank's

death, occasioned by Governor
Slaton's being so unsure of the
court's decision based on the
facts as he saw them that he
commuted Frank's death sen-
tence and set off the raging mob
that went to revenge the honor of
little Mary.
The hanged Frank was re-
covering from a wound inflicted
by a prisoner who nearly suc-
ceeded in slitting Frank's throat
with a razor blade. Slaton's
career died along with Leo Frank.
HOW THE modern request for
pardon came to be is equally as
fascinating as is the Frank story
itself. There had been a 13-year-
old eye-witness, Alonzo Mann.
Through a variety of suspect cir-
cumstances, Mann's testimony
was never taken. He lived fjr 70
years with his guilt and suddenly
unburdened himself. But to
whom? To Nashville Tennessean
reporter, Jerry Thompson.
Mann had followed Thomp-
son's expose on the Ku Klux
Klan. In one part of it, Thompson
mentioned the Frank case. Mann
could no longer bear it. Gravely
ill with heart disease, he called
Thompson and said, "I can't go
to the grave with this knowledge.
I must unburden my soul."
Thompson flew to North Carolina
and grilled Mann so extensively
it would have made Perry Mason
proud. It nearly killed Alonso
Having worked with me on the
Klan story and knowing that I
had spent eight years in Atlanta,
Thompson called me one night
and said, "Swear you won't re-
veal what I 'm going to tell." So I
swore. "I can prove Leo Frank is
innocent." This time 1 swore dif-
ferently. 'Jerry, you better be
damm sure. People still come to
I blows in Atlanta over that trial."
FOR THE next several weeks;
Thompson did what will be
known as the definitive research
on the Leo Frank case. He and
his colleague. Bob Sherbourne,
became obsessed. They proved
that Mann was telling the truth,
and the Nashville Tennessean on
Sunday March 7, 1982 thun-
dered: "An Innocent Man was
Thompson flew to Atlanta and
addressed a packed, hushed,
crowded Jewish Community
Center. His iron-clad research
and his passion to see justice
done infected several community
leaders who rallyed to the leader-
ship of a prominent local native
lawyer, Dale Schwartz. It became
a celebre, an issue in the
Governors race.
On September 17. 1982, the
letter quoted above, signed by
representatives of ADL, AJC,
and the Jewish Federation, wa.-
addressed to the Honorable
Mobley Howell, chairman
Georgia State Board of Pardons
and Paroles.
quest for a posthumous pardon
ended by saying, "We submit our
application to you with the same
motivation that impelled the
Georgia Senate to adopt Senate
resolution 423 in its 1982 session:
to finally right an historic injus-
tice by exonerating Leo Frank,
thereby demonstrating that our
legal system can indeed be called
upon to find the ultimate truth
and proclaim it. This case
presents a rare opportunity for us
to obliterate a terrible stain
which history has ascribed to the
Georgia Judicial system because
of the injustice done to Leo
Frank. We should not let this op-
portunity pass. We believe, as we
know you do, if following the
biblical injunction. 'Justice.' Jus-
tice thou shalt pursue."
But will the Parole Board
grant the pardon? Should it? At
best it's no better than an even
bet. The Board would have to
make decisions based on testi-
mony given by people long since
dead save Mr. Mann who is ill. In
doing so, it would again bring
face to face, or at least, story to
story, the relatives and friends of
Leo Frank and family, the rela-
tives and friends of Mary
Phagen, and the relatives and
friends of flame throwing United
States Sen. Thomas Watson.

Hussein Presents Peace Plan
To Mitterrand in Paris
PARIS (JTA) King Hussein of Jordan has
presented the Arab peace plan to President Francois I
Mitterrand and later said the French and Arab positions
have many points in common. Hussein, who led a seven-
member Arab delegation, including a PLO representative,
later said "France has examined our plan in a positive and
constructive way."
THE ARAB plan, drawn up at the recent Fez
summit conference, calls for a mutual recognition by
Israel and the PLO and for the Palestinian organization's
participation in future peace talks.
Hussein, who is due to lead the delegation to Moscow
and Peking next, said that the Arab states will continue
to press their case while exploring the possibilities offered
by the American peace plan as outlined by President
Reagan in September.
The Arab delegation consisted of the Foreign
Ministers of Syria, Morocco, Algeria, and Saudia Arabia
as well as the PLO's Farouk Kaddumi and Arab League
Secretary General Chedli Klibi.

ened, we can expect neither un-

own delayed agony here.
In fact, the fictionalized
reporting of the war in Lebanon
has turned the nation's sympath-
ies away from Israel and there-
fore away from its Jewish sup-
porters. The State Department's

It may well be because of these
sympathies, all the more pro-
nounced since the advent of
George Shultz to the State
Department, that attacks against
American Jews and their institu-
tions have not occurred up until
now. The new Reagan Admin-
istration Arab tilt holds the line.
But should Israel decline to be
intimidated by it and not change,
say, its West Bank policies or its
attitude toward a Palestinian
state, then we can look for
trouble ahead on the basis that
the Arab revolutionaries have
given up on America as a source
of workable pressure on Israel.
And then, it will be more
apparent than ever that the
burden can not be shifted from
our anxious shoulders where it
rests unallied. We must face it
squarely alone.

She consented to our interview,
but hastened to protest that she
was not a prodigy or a wun-
derkind of any kind. To the
contrary, she told us, she had not
even been first in any of her
classes just an ordinary
student, though it appears that
the advances in her career were
based on recognition of genuine
ability, rather than on any luck.
SHE IS not a crusading
feminist, and believes that
women must find the golden path
between family's home and
career. She does not favor women
over men, nor lean over back-
wards against them. Still, when
in the army, she was responsible
for righting certain injustices. In
the early days, men were given
enlistment grants women not,
until she changed the policy.
Career soldiers were given help in
obtaining an education, and she
insisted that the same benefit be
extended to the girls.
She recalls when, not so very
long ago, women's signatures
were not accepted on mortgages
in Israel, not even as co-signers.
Women who want a career
should not do so at the sacrifice
of family life, she feels. Under-
standing is required by husband,
by the children, and by the
employer as well. Conflict can be
avoided if acceptance of major
outside responsibilities is
deferred until the children are old
enough not to miss their mother's
personal care and attention.
Banking in Israel is highly
competitive, and we asked her

nevertheless that the talks with

before long.

support of Israel and
greater dialogue between
the Evangelical and Jewish
Douglas Shearer, president of
TAV Evangelical Ministries, a
California-based group which
supports Israel, told a press con-
ference that the millions of Evan-
gelicals who support Israel will
demonstrate this through meet-
ings and demonstrations in order
to change the shift in American
foreign policy away from support
of Israel back to the support Is-
rael "enjoyed in the past." He
also stressed that the Evan-
gelicals support Jews in the U.S.
and throughout the world and are
opposed to anti-Semitism.
DAN BETZER, the "Voice of
the Assemblies of God Revival
Time," said that Evangelicals are
at a "crossroads" in which they
can either take the easy path and
return to "the barbaric senseless
harping against the Jews' influ-
ence by ecclesiastic pressures and
material benefits" or turn to
"total acceptance and complete
understanding to our Jewish
brethren." He called for a "new
era of dialogue" and "not
pogroms, not forced conversions,
not ghettoes, not discrimination
of any kind."
Rabbi David Ben-Ami, presi-
dent of the American Forum for
Jewish-Christian Cooperation,.
noted that he spent the first 13
years of his life in Germany, five
of them under Nazism. He said
that if the German Christian
churches had been willing to en-
gage in dialogue with the Jewish
community and had understood
that despite differences a com-
mon theology existed, Hitler
would not have been able to come
to power in Germanv. Ben Ami's
group was one of the co-sponsors
of the two day event along with
TAV and the Washington He-
i brew Congregation.
At a press conference here,
Shearer read an eight-point
Evangelical declaration which af-
firmed that Evangelicals "are
committed to the security of Is-
rael" and "believe that Jerusalem
is the eternal and indivisible
capital of the Jewish State and
should not be internationalized or
made the subject of any negotia-
tions or compromise."
said that "Israel should not be
required to cede disputed land for

The statement also said that

repent on the Church's silence."
It stressed support of "the efforts
of the American Jewish com-
munity in behalf of Israel, these
efforts reflect a natural affinity
and must never be made the basis
of accusing our Jewish friends of
dual loyalty."
The declaration denounced
anti-Zionism and said while the
policies of the government of Is-
rael can be criticized, "we are op-
posed to a blind irrational hatred
of Zion a hatred which de-
mands that Israel be judged by
an impossible standard of right-
eousness." The Evangelical
statement also urged the Arab
leaders "to unequivocally re-

brace the legitimacy of the Israeli
RABBI Joshua Haberman,
senior Rabbi at the Washington
Hebrew Congregation, said the
two days of meetings were of
"historic significance" because it
was an "opening of doors" be-
tween Evangelicals and Jews. He
said Jews and Evangelicals may
not agree on every point but
"there is no' need to disagree on
every point."
Rabbi Herzel Kranz, rabbi for
the Silver Spring Jewish Center
and chairman of the local United
Zionist Revisionists, who has
been seeking for 10 years to bring
Evangelicals and Jews together,
said that while "religious" Jews
and Christians have been ex-
pressing support for Israel it is
now time for them to work to-
gether and act in support of Is-
rael. The participants at the press
conference spoke in front of a
banner which quoted from the
, 101st Psalm. It said: "Arise and
have mercy upon Zion; for the set
time to favOr her is come."

Shultz's Inaugural Flourish
The issue at three West Bank universities where
Israel asked for a faculty "loyalty oath" can not be
compared to "McCarthyism," as Secretary of State
George Shultz declared last week. The issue is not
academic freedom, but aiding and abetting terrorist
acts against a democratic ally.
In fact, comments Morris J. Amitay, whose politi
cal columns appear in The Jewish Floridian, the
teachers were not asked to sign "loyalty oaths" at
all. Says Amitay, all they were asked to do was
"pledge not to aid an organization dedicated to the
violent overthrow of Israel and actually at-
tempting to do so."
We agree. And Amitay comes specially-equipped
to know, not only as a columnist and Washington
observer these days, but also as a consequence of his
previous long tenure with the America Israel
Political Action Conmittee there.
Amitay conjectures that the Shultz \ press confer-
ence remarks are a bellwether of new Administration
policies geared toward confrontation with Israel.
Indeed, the distinct possibility is that Shultz's ob-
servations during his conference were a last-minute
substitute for the inauguration of these policies
intended to be made by President Reagan during his
talks with Prime Minister Begin talks cancelled
when the Prime Minister suddenly flew back to Israel
when his wife, Aliza, died.
What seems to be occurring these days, is a
sudden toughening of American foreign policy
toward Israel, but we agree with Amitay that "Israel
is unlikely to cave in, the Arabs are unlikely to come
to the negotiating table, and the U.S. interest in a
genuine peace is unlikely to be advanced."
All except, of course, for the media, whose new
anti-Israel mode will give them something to raise a
fuss about. Intransigence, and that sort of thing. In
this, the Administration will serve at least some
West Germany Calling
To say that Israeli Premier Menachem Begin and
West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt had a
falling out may be an understatement. After a series
of bitter personal exchanges last year, diplomatic
relations between the two countries fell to a new low
and reconciliation seemed far off in the distance.
Schmidt's position in the Middle East dispute,
supporting the nearly dead European Economic
Community Venice Declaration of 1980 calling for
the "association" of the PLO in peace negotiations,
did not sit well in official Israeli leadership circles.
But now with the fall of the long ruling Schmidt
coalition government and the rise of Helmut Kohl,
leader of the Christian Democratic Union, initial
indications are signaling toward a time of better
relations between the two governments.
Since coming to power last September, Kohl has
maintained a low keyed approach toward the Middle
East. But recently, meeting with a group of Jewish
leaders in New York at the tail end of a visit to the
United States, Kohl enunciated some policy direction
toward Israel, indicating a more sympathetic view
toward the Jewish State.
Kohi said he supports the Camp David process,
which he indicated to the Reagan Administration in
his meetings earlier. Overall, Kohl's position seems
congruous with many in the American Jewish
community who realize that strong diplomatic
relations between West Germany and Israel can only
enhance the prospect for a just and lasting peace in
the Middle East.
When Will the Attacks in the U.S. Begin?
Jordan to Ekter Autonomy Talks
HOW LONG will it be before
American Jewish citizens and in-
stitutions are the objects o

question is not whether but
There is little reason to assume
that these attacks will not occui
sometime soon. They have been
happening everywhere else, and
with special frequency in Europe.
Why not here?
For the American Jewish com-
munity to avoid the issue is to ig-
nore the facts. Sixteen European
Jewish communities held a closed
session of the World Jewish Con-
gress European Branch at the be-
ginning of November to deal with
the lethal quality of the terrorism
directed against them.
A MAJOR report at the ses-
sion was delivered by Frank
Perez, director of the State De-
partment's Office for Combatting
Terrorism. In his intelligence
evaluation, Perez told the Euro-
peans that terrorist attacks
against Jews and Israelis "have
Former Premier YitehrfrVRabii
proposed that Israel undertake a
six month freeze on new settle
ments in an attempt to induce
Jordan to join the long stalled
autonomy talks. According to
Rabin, interviewed on Israel
Radio, there is little chance of
progress in the talks unless
Jordan enters the peace process.
A settlement freeze could pro-
vide King Hussein with the extra
measure of strength he needs to
resist hardline pressures from
within the Arab world, said
Rabin, a leader of the opposition
Labor Party.
He maintained that there is a
J" irecedent" for a settlement
reeze," citing Premier Mena-
chem Begin's agreement to a
three month freeze during the
Camp David talks as a gesture
toward other Arab parties.
been more lethal than other ter-
Perez said that "over three-
quarters of the attacks were
carried out by Palestinians."
Perhaps the most stunning sta-
tistic in the OCT report is that
from January, 1981 until Sep-
tember. 1982 there were 104
attacks by terrorists against Is-
raeli and Jewish targets.
Of this number, which excludes
attacks in Israel proper or on the
West Bank, more than 20 percent
were staged in France and Italy.
Altogether, 26 countries have
suffered them.
ALTHOUGH fully half the at-
tacks were directed against Is-
raeli citizens or interests abroad
the fact is that Jews from 17
other countries have been victim-
ized by Palestinian terrorism for
no other reason than that they
are Jews and, presumably, to
frighten them and others away
from supporting Israeli causes.
The OCT report indicates that,
in all, some 400 people have been
wounded and 25 killed, and Perez
told the Europeans that almost
half of the attacks occurred in
Western Europe.
At a time when the foreign
policy section of the State De-
partment seems perfectly willing
to see Israel go down the drain,
its Office for Combatting Terror-
ism emphasizes the especially
brutal nature of terrorist attacks
directed against Jews generally
and Israelis specifically. Appar-
ently, the reality of the terrorism
has nothing to do with official
American willingness to knuckle
under and do business with it.
Particularly emphasized by the
OCT is the fact that, in all its
tabulated statistics, almost 60
percent of these attacks werei
directed against people, not
property. Furthermore, better
than 65 percent of the attacks de-
liberately set out to cause as
many casualties as possible.
They were no mere scare tactics.
league of B'nai B"rith has just
issued a report of its own on this
very question. The ADL opened

years ago, and the report covers
the period from Autumn, 1980 to
the same period in 1982.
The ADL s statistics are con-
fined to Europe only and cite 73
bombings and shootings. Since
the attacks are perceived as part
of the Israel-Arab conflict, police
investigations tend to be limited
in scope. In fact, in only one case
has there been an arrest the

The Lady Wanted to Be an Engineer
HAIFA The lady
wanted to be an engineer,
but fate decreed otherwise.
Instead, she carved out an
unusual career in the army,
and then became the first
woman to head a major
bank in Israel. Those are
only the bare details in the
story of Dvora Tomer, who
as head of a mortgage
bank, never in her life fore-
closed a mortgage. There is
more to the story than that.
Her family brought her to
Israel when she was only one year
old. Her father was a house
painter, and the family resources
were limited. At the age of 14 she
was already a member of the
Haganah. Her ambition was to
enroll at the Technion and
become an engineer, but the
expense was more than tht
family could bear. On the eve ot
her compulsory military services,
in 1949, she took a chance course
in economics, just to fill the time
"I WASN'T even quite sure
what economics was all about,"
she said, but once the course
began she found that it appealed
to her. She was able to combine
her military service with univer-
sity studies, and majored in stat-
istics and management. Then,
back into the army she went. In
1955, she was assigned to the
office of the financial adviser to
the Army Chief of Staff,
becoming assistant to the head of
the office and reaching the rank
of Colonel.
CHy noted that the slightly-
built woman had a talent for
finance, for human relations and
for administration. In 1970. she
was appointed to the highest post
a woman can hold in Israels
Defense Forces, commander of
the Women's Corp (Chen) a
position she held for three years.
Private industry then
beckoned. Completely free of any
political background or af-
filiation, and indeed apolitical in
her views, she nonetheless ac-
cepted invitation to join the staff
oi Israel's Labor Bank, Bank
Hapoalim, as director of savings
accounts. Within a few years, she
became head of Mishkan, a Bank
Hapoalim affiliate, and the
second largest mortgage bank in
the country, with a present
balance sheet in excess of
$350,000,000. That was not the
EARLIER THIS year, Dvora
Tomer was elevated to the post of
deputy managing director of the
entire Bank Hapoalim complex.
Higher than that, no woman had
ever risen before in Israel's
financial world.
The lady is a banker, but one
would never suspect that was her
profession. She is quiet, pleasant.

Swamps Labor Party

A column in the New York
Times by editorial page
editor Max Frankel that
the Labor Party Opposition
wants the United States to
reduce its aid to Israel as a
means of pressuring the
Begin government has trig-
gered a political storm here.
The story broke in the media
after a report on Frankel's
column was sent from New York
by the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy. The Labor Party flatly denied
Frankel's report, but government
Figures lashed out at the oppo-
sition for lack of patriotism.
FRANKEL, in a two-part
series, wrote that "The govern-
ment's opponents, in sum, are
frail and timid" and "thus
reduced to begging America to
break Mr. Begins political
power. And it now advocates
means that would have been
unthinkable even a few weeks
ago. The startling plea by many
leading Israelis (is) that the
United States reduce its econo-
mic aid to their nation."
Frankel stated that Begin's
opponents "acknowledge poli-
tical weakness, which is mainly
due to Mr. Begins success in
rallying the large, resentful com-
munity of Middle Eastern Jews
against the affluent or socialistic
elites of European origin." The
opposition, therefore, according
to Frankel, wants the U.S. to
help them topple the Begin
And to that end, leading oppo-
sition figures now risk political
oblivion by counselling sharp
cuts in America's non-military
aid of $800 million a year," Fran-
kel wrote. He concluded by
noting: "American diplomats in
Israel resist this anguished
counsel But that so many
prominent Israelis should be
inviting bankruptcy to rescue
their diplomacy is startling
evidence of the fierce passions
that now dominate politics in

rusalem Post, refused to identify
his sources. But the Post corre-
spondent wrote that Frankel "in-
dicated strongly that they were
top leaders not secondary

Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, addressing a national
convention of the ultra-rightist
Tehiya Party in Jerusalem, said:
"Some of our critics at home even
want to invoke overseas pres-
sures to be brought to bear on the
government but never fear.
They will not succeed. The
government of Israel will never
surrender to pressure."
Shamir called on Tehiya to
give its "verve, enthusiasm and
zeal" to supporting "the govern-
ment of Israel our govern-
ment ... it is an Eretz Israel
government." He said the
government was under attack at
home and abroad for "strength-
ening Jewish settlements in each
and every part of Eretz Israel."

Shimon Perez
spokesman accused Shamir of
inciting against the opposition.

/Mews in Brief
Draper Begged Israel to 'Stop Massacre
By JTA Report
dan, the representative in Beirut
of Israel's Foreign Ministry, in
testimony before the board of in-
quiry into the Sabra and Shatila
massacre, reported Sunday that
special U.S. envoy Morris Draper
telephoned him the morning of
Saturday. Sept. 18, to insist that
Israel "stop the massacres" by
I -ebanese Christian forces.
In a report from the Washing-
ton Post Service, Draper is
quoted as having accused Israel
in stern language of respon-
sibility for the "terrible" and
"obscene" massacres.
Kashdan told the committee of
inquiry that Draper had called
him to warn Israel against allow-
ing the Christian militia into the
camps. The Kashdan testimony
was believed to have made public
the first official U.S. reaction to
the events at Sabra and Shatila.
According to the Washington
Post, Draper's call preceded by
only hours the statement by
President Reagan in which he ex-
pressed his "outrage and revul-
sion" to the massacre.

A t CJFWF Assembly
A Call for World Jewish Partnership
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the
Jewish Agency and World Zion-
ist Executives, called for a "new
challenging partnership between
Israel and Jewish communities
throughout the world." He de-
fined that partnership as a "unity
of commitment" in confronting
Israeli-diaspora "common tasks
and common agenda" for "the
creative survival of the Jewish
Addressing delegates to the
51st General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations.
Dulzin noted that there are dif
ficulties within Israel these days
and between Israel and the dias-
pora, but "we will solve this."
The "reality of Israel is the force
that unites Jews around the
world and is also the unifying
element in Jewish communities in
the United Statea."
DULZIN SAID the common
tasks and common agenda in Is-
rael-diaspora relations is based
on the Jerusalem Program which
was adopted by the World Zion-
ist Congress in 1968. The five-
point program states that the
aims of Zionism are:
"The unity of the Jewish
people and the centrality of Israel
in Jewish life"; "The ingathering
of the Jewish people in its his-
toric homeland, Eretz Israel,
through aliya from all coun-
tries"; "The strengthening of the
State of Israel which is based on
the prophetic vision of justice
and peace"; "The preservation of
the identity of the Jewish people
through the fostering of Jewish'
and Hebrew education and of
Jewish spiritual and cultural
values"; and "The protection of
Jewish rights everywhere."
Dulzin said that in line with
this program, "aliya and its pro-
motion are a top priority and
should be on the agenda of every
Jewish community organi
zation." Another top priority, he
said, is Jewish education, forma'
and informal.
FOCUSING ON aliya. Dulzii
said that a strong Israel "re
quires more Jews. Our econonv
needs the skills of Jews from th
Western world." In addition
aliya is not only important for Is
reel "but also for diaspora com-
munities. It strengthens links to
Israel and Israel is linked to the
diaspora with bonds of family."
Among the common tasks
facing Israel and the diaspora,
Dulzin cited the need to rescue
Jews in distress in the Soviet
Union and Ethiopia. He pledged
that Israel "will bring all
Ethiopian Jews to Israel."
Regarding the "tragic
situation" of Jews in the USSR,
he warned that "if neshira (drop-
out) continues to grow it will hurt
Jewish emigration." He rejected
the idea that Soviet Jews are ref-
ugees. "They have a place to
and that place is Israel," he
clared. "The road from the Soviet
Union should be to Jerusalem
and not to New York or Paris or

would have said anything so
stupid or so vicious." Barlev said
he himself had not met with
Frankel. He raised the possibility
that Frankel'8 report might be "a
provocation" but refused to
specify who might have been res-
ponsible for such a provocation.
But Justice Minister Moshe
Nissim (Likud-Liberal) told
reporters that Frankel was
"credible'' and had plainly
written what he did because he
had been satisfied it reflected "a
trind'" within I>abor.
Nissim noted that Frankel had
told the Post that he "would not
have written this article unless I
was convinced that the view was
widespread and that it was
deeply felt ... It was not just
one crackpot. I was startled to
find how widespread the view
was." Plainly, Nissim said,
Frankel had met with several
leading Laborites and the view he
reported was a trend in their
THIS WAS "an unpreceden-
ted scandal." the Justice Min-
ister continued. "See to what ter-
rible lengths they are prepared to
go just to try and get back into
power. "

people to assimilation and inter-
marriage. In the old days it was
hard to be a Jew but Jews re-
mained Jews. Today it is easier to
be a Jew but it is also easier to
disappear as a Jew into the gen-
eral scene. I have my own defini-
tion of who is a Jew. A Jew is
one who helps his children remain
a Jew."
He stressed repeatedly that it
is imperative "to maintain the
unity of the Jewish people de-
spite differences we may have."
He noted that while many things
divide us, what "unites us is Is-
rael." Dulzin did not spell out
what differences he had in mind,
but hinted that the differences
were over the war in Lebanon.
He indicated this when he
noted that Israel is deeply in-
volved in sorting out the tragedy
of the women and children who
were killed in the refugee camps
in west Beirut. He said that after
the Yom Kippur War Israelis
called for a commission of inquiry
to investigate the lack of pre-
paredness. "They were investi-
gating themselves," he said.
'Now the investigation is about
other people."
Citing his dream for Israel's
future. Dulzin said he wants an
Israel that exemplifies morality
and Jewish principles. "We do
not want to become another
Sparta and be known for our
military strength," he declared.
ROBERT LOUP, general
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal, who also addressed the
forum which dealt with Israel-
diaspora relations, castigated the
media for its "wild distortions"
of the war in Lebanon, with its
highly exaggerated and uncon-
firmed stories about the numbers
of people who were killed or made
He charged that the media was
guilty of "bigotry and even anti-
Semitism" in its use of "code
words such as genocide,' 'holo-
caust,' and Nazis' to describe Is-
rael's action in Lebanon." Loup
said that the media "missed the
real story the real sacrifice Is-
raeli soldiers made not to harm
civilians in Lebanon."
The UJA leader pointed to the
sharp contrast between the media
coverage of the Sabre and Shatila
camps massacres and the media
insensitivity to the deaths of
Jews at the hands of terrorists.
Citing by name major news-
papers, wire services, TV net-
works and columnists in this
country which produced reams of
copy about the massacres but
paid scant, if any attention to
Jewish victims around the world,
Loup declared:
"WHERE WERE the media
when a Jewish woman was killed
in Antwerp, an Israeli diplomat
murdered in Paris, and an Israeli
Ambassador wounded in Lon-
don? Does any president have on
his desk a photo of Stefano
Tasch. the two-year-old child who
was killed in Rome when the
synagogue was bombed?"
This last was an apparent ref-
erence to the photo President
Reagan allegedly kept on his
desk of the Lebanese child who
was described in the caption as
armless but which UPI, which
distributed the photo worldwide,
later conceded had been mislabel-
ed. Medical reports showed that
the infant suffered a broken arm.
The photo was used to symbolize
the suffering of the Lebanese
people during the war.
Loup also stressed the need for
unity between American Jewry
and Israel. He said that this
unity was being manifested de-
spite questions and concerns over
Israels policies. "I am gratified
by the willingness of our peons,
to give to UJA s Israel's speck
hind and the 1983 general cam
paign." he said. "If we don't raise
money, wont Israelis also feel
that we don't understand them''
forum was Simcha Destel an
Ethiopian Jew. He told the aud-
ience that in Ethiopia today "it i.
very hard to live as a Jew. Jewish
schools are closed by the order of
the government. Teaching He-
brew is prohibited by the govern-
ment. Jews are not allowed to
meet together even in small
groups of three. There is no com-
munications between villages
We are becoming more and more
isolated. We cannot wait much
longer." In a fervent plea to the
audience he declared: "Bring mfc-
home to Israel." Destel said he
was a free man because of the
help he received from the Los
Angeles Jewish Federation
the Jewish Agency of Israel.
