Janner in Warning
Dangers Said To Be Threatening Jews of Europe
Greville Janner, the head of
the British Jewish com-
munity, warned of serious
dangers threatening the
position of Jews in Europe
from the extreme right and
extreme left. "He pointed
especially to the recent
elections for the European
Parliament in which "11 to
12 percent of the French
electorate voted fascist."
Janner was referring to the
elections last June in which the
National Front, led by Jean-
Marie Le Pen, won 11 percent of
the vote. Janner, president of the
Board of Deputies of British
Jews and a member of the British
Parliament, spoke of the dangers
facing European Jews at a
meeting of the leadership of 30
American national Jewish organ-
izations at an executive session of
the American Section of the
World Jewish Congress.
POINTING OUT that "Amer-
icans have heard almost nothing"
about the electoral inroads made
by fascist parties in Europe,
Janner observed that, on the
other hand, "When Israel voted
one-and-a-half percent fascist
(referring to Meir Kahane's
election every newspaper in the
world was filled with it."
European Jewry was opposed to
racists of any sort, he said.
Elaborating on the potential
dangers of Jews in Europe,
Janner pointed to the sharp
economic downturn of the
continent which is pushing many
of the disadvantaged into ex-
tremist camps of the right and
left. "The Jews have always had
their golden age in times of
prosperity, and to me the long-
term indications are bad," Janner
The threat from terrorism, he
said was rising and spreading
throughout the world. "The PLO
is an international terrorist
emanation spreading throughout
the globe, and it doesn't help the
Jews to live in terrorist times,"
he added.
FINALLY, he suggested that
in Europe, as in much of the rest
of the world, there is diminishing
sympathy for the Jewish con-
dition, and this was also a reason
for his pessimistic outlook. "The
image of the Holocaust is
receding, so that people no longer
have a guilt complex about the
Jews," Janner said.
Janner was recently elected
chairman of the World Jewish
Congress-European Branch and
was in New York to brief Ameri-
can Jewish leaders on the state of
European Jewry. He also
reported on his recent meetings
with Prime Minister Indira
Gandhi of India and Prime
Minister Robert Mugabi of

October Mission Nearly Full
As previously reported, South
County Jewish Federation has
already subscribed a full bus load
for its October Mission to Israel
and is well on its way to filling
a second.
This is another in a series of
"firsts" according to Ed Bobick,
Chairman of the October
Mission. The success in the
missions program comes on top
of a recent move by the Federa-
tion to its own building on its
own Jewish Campus, a 1984
campaign that reached S3.5

Eighteen women made
Jewish history Wednesday
when they entered class-
room at the rabbinical
school of the Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary of
America to begin studies to
qualify them for ordination
as the first Women Con-
servative rabbis, an event
expected to end a long-run-
ning dispute on the issue in
Conservative Judaism.
The 19th woman in the first
entering class chose to begin bar
studies at the movement's school
in Jerusalem, Neva Schechter,

Tucker, the JTS rabbinical school
dean. Twenty-one women had
been scheduled to be members of
the first class, but two deckled to
defer entrance, the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency was told.
THE PROGRAM of study for
the Conservative rabbinate is six
years. But Tucker said that
women had previously studies
courses required for the rabbinate
but did not receive rabbinical
school credits.
But credits for such courses, if
they are part of the rabbinical
school curriculum, have bean
added to the records of the first
woman students. Tucker told the
JTA there was a "mathematical
possibility" that one of the
woman students has acquired
enough credits by that procedure
to be graduated and ordained at
commencement exercises at JTS

In Trudeau 's Shadow
Do Things Shape Up Without Him?
London Chronicle Syndicate
TORONTO Israel has
just been through her
general election, with an
inconclusive outcome, and
the United States is due for
its quadrennial contest in
The election campaign has
been the first for 16 years which
has not been dominated by the
figure of the former Prime Min-
ister, Pierre Trudeau. Even in his
absence, however, his influence
has been felt on all sides, as even
his foes concede.
AS THE 19th Century German
poet, Heinrich Heine, put it: Wie
es christelt sich, so judelt es sich
(As in the Christian fashion, so in
the Jewish fashion").
The Jewish feelings of
Canada's Jewish community
towards Trudeau were best cap-
tured by a Yiddish journalist,
Jacob Rabinowitz, writing in a
New York weekly, who headed
his column: "Good-bye, Pierre
Elliott Trudeau!"
Rabinowitz noted that
Trudeau s boldness and freedom
from prejudice in making Jewish
appointments had been
recognized. He had four Jews in
his Cabinet; a Jew (the late Bora
Laskin) headed Canada's
Supreme Court, and there were
numerous Jewish appointments
to the Senate, the senior civil
service and the diplomatic corps.
MANY OF these were major
postings. Allan Gotlieb, for
example, was named Ambas-
sador to Washington.
Jewish gratitude on this score
has been tempered by regret that
Trudeau was cool towards Israel.
He has unquestionably main-
tained Canada's positive and
correct position in regard to the
Jewish state, but his officials
gave "unofficial" recognition to
the Palestine Liberation Organ-
During a European tour in
1982, during the war in Lebanon,
Trudeau went out of his way to
rebuke Israel for her actions.
All this is in the past, however.
Where do Canada's Jews stand
now? They have been considered
as being partial to the Liberal
Party, which has formed the
Government for 60 of the past 64
Members of Parliament, the
majority have been Liberals, with
a number of Socialists (CCF-New
Democrats), and just one
Conservative from a riding
(constituency) in Newfoundland,
far from any Jewish-populated
Israeli Warplanes Hit Terrorist
Target in East Lebanon
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
warplanes hit a terrorist base
near Majdel Anjar in east
Lebanon, an army spokesman
reported. The planes destroyed
buildings at the base in the
Bekaa valley that was operated
by Palestinian rebel leader Abu
Musa. All Israeli aircraft
returned safely to their base.
The army spokesman said the
base had been used as a
departure point for attacks by
terrorists operating from behind
Syrian lines in east Lebanon.
Another base used by the Abu
Musa terrorists was bombed
Aug. 16 after their leader claimed
responsibility for a thwarted car-
bombing attempt in Jerusalem.
The attack followed reports
that three Israel Defense Force
w soldiers were wounded in south
Lebanon in the past 24 hours.
- One was wounded when a
Z roadside explosion was set off aa
* a convoy passed by on a road
west of the Anaar detention
camp. Two other soldiers were
wounded in a dash with a

many attacks on the IDF in
recent weeks. In a search of the
area, IDF soldiers found a large
cache of arms, including
Katyusha rockets, missiles and
rocket-propelled greantes.
The IDF instituted new
security arrangements at the
Awali River crossing in this
region, including a "terminal
building" where passengers and
vehicles are searched, to reduce
the amount of arms smuggling
between the north and south of
Lebanon. The bridge which had
been closed last week, has now
been reopened, and delays at the
crossing point have been reduced
from three or four days to about
three hours.
At present, a malaise is affect-
ing the Jewish vote which reflects
Canada's general malaise. Brian
Mulroney, 44, the new leader of
the Progressive Conservatives, is
energetic bilingual (he was born
in Quebe and speaks an earthy
Quebecois French) and has
already annoyed the Canadian
Arab organizations by his voci-
ferous statements denouncing
the PLO.
However, some think of him as
too smooth and endowed with too
much Irish charm.
Canadian Jews wish to avoid a
repeat of the rash promise by a
former Tory leader, who pledged
to move Canada's embassy in
Israel from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem, but was forced to
recant in embarrassment in the
ensuing hullaballoo.
Trudeau s newly-elected succes-
sor as leader of the Liberal Party,
is positive and has said the right
things about the Middle East.
Yet he is still untested on foreign
policy issues.
The Canadian Jewish Congress
has set up "political liaison com-
mittees" which approach candi-
dates on a non-partisan basis and
keep them informed about the
"Jewish agenda."
This covers such areas as the
amendment to the hate propa-
ganda laws, an issue which was
brought to public attention by
the case of Jim Keegstra, the
former Alberta teacher and
mayor, who had taught anti-
Semitism to his pupils, and the
prosecution of Nazi war
criminals. Canada is regarded as
a haven for them and there has so
far been only one extradition
"agenda" are Israel and the
Middle East, the plight of Jews
in the Soviet Union and oppres-
sive countries such as Syria and
How important is the Jewish
vote? In several Toronto and
Montreal constituencies, it is
critical. These are St. Pauls, York
Centre, Eglington-Lawrence and
the Willowdale area in Toronto,
and Mount Royal and Notre
Dame de Grace in Montreal.
Trudeau himself had repre-
sented Mount Royal 40
percent of whose voters are
Jewish since 1965.
ON HIS departure, there was a
scramble for the Liberal Party
nomination between a former
president of the Canadian B'nai
B'rith, a francophone Sephardi
from Morocco, and a housewife
whose father is a former
president of the Canadian Jewish
Congress. It was the housewife
who received the nomination.
Unlike in the United States,
where a Catholic candidate for
the presidency once aroused
controversy, this is taken for
granted in Canada.
All three party leaders are
Catholics, but nothing is made of
it. One of the Toronto ridings,
Eglington-Lawrence one-third
of whose population is Jewish
is represented by an Anglican
priest, the Rev. Ronald de
Corneille, who is a former execu-
tive director of the Canadian
B'nai B'rith's League for Human
IZZIE ASPER of Winnipeg
and Senator Jerry Grafstein of
Toronto are on the Liberal
Party's strategy board. Gerry
Caplan is the executive secretary
of the New Democratic Party,
and Senator Nathan Nurgitz and
Hugh Segal are listened to in
Progressive Conservative circles.

Background Report
Arabs Pleased Kahane Turned Away
Rabbi Meir Kahane, leader
of the extremist Kach

represents in the Knesset,

police from entering the
Israeli Arab village of
Umm El-Fahm, where he
had planned to appeal to its
25,000 inhabitants to

25.000 inhabitants it is larger
than some towns in Israel at
the head of a convoy of cars f flled
with his followers, some of whom
were reported to be armed.
He had announced some time
ago, while he was running for the
Knesset, that he would visit
Umm El-Fahm to urge Israeli
Arabs to emigrate to Arab lands,
claiming they had no place in a
Jewish State.
Village leaders had responded
by saying he would not be
allowed in, and leftwing and
liberal Jews had promised to
come to the village to help stand
guard against his entry.
The Kahane convoy was halted
by police and border patrols some
two miles from the village. The
Kach leader and his followers
then started walking toward their

away they were stopped by senior
police officers who told Kahane
that for "operational and profes-
sional reasons" he could not enter
the village.
His parliamentary immunity
does not allow for his arrest or
detention, but when he persisted
in trying to continue, two police-
men led him firmly to a police
van, in which he was taken to a
nearby police station and told to
leave the area.
Kahane shouted at the police
and nearby reporters: "Give me
15 policemen, and we will deal

Abram Hits Bigoted
Nail on the Head
In his statement on relations between
American Jews and Blacks today, Morris
Abram told a B'nai B'rith International
meeting last week that certain conditions
must be met in the future if these two
minorities are to live in continued harmony.
Abram, who is honorary president of the
American Jewish Committee, has thus for
the first time demanded a quid pro quo
from the Black community in the cause of
"friendship, cooperation and mutual
In our view, this is a "first," and we are
delighted. A great deal of difficulty bet-
ween Blacks and Jews became even greater
and more difficult in the aftermath of the
pre-convention Democratic Party
presidential campaign when Jews and
Christians alike, both Black and white,
pampered presidential aspirant Jesse
Jackson's patent anti-Semitism.
When Jackson seemingly apologized in
his address to the Democratic convention
in San Francisco for his prejudicial
campaign remarks, he made unbelievable
whatever vestige of hope Jews may have
held in the apology after Jackson refused to
repudiate Louis Farrakhan, the virulently
anti-Semitic leader in the Black Muslim
Nor was there any real handling either of
Jackson or of Farrakhan by the highest
echelons of the Democratic Party itself it
refused to nail a plank into its platform
disavowing anti-Semitism in the name of
the party's fear of "offending" Jackson.
Enthusiastic Silence
Indeed, Christian America, both white
and Black, has since seemed pathetically
silent on the entire issue except for the
Republican Party at its convention in
Dallas, which of course had a field day with
Jackson, anti-Semitism and the cowardly
Democratic Platform Committee.
What Abram addressed at the B'nai
B'rith International convention was Black
silence particularly. Moreover, Abram
reminded the American Black community
that Jews had walked together with Blacks
when they were shackled by Jim Crow.
Now, he said, it is time for Blacks to un-
derstand that Jews are just as hobbled
today by anti-Semitic attacks on their race
and religion.
Instead, Abram declared, Black in-
tellectuals these days openly espouse the
despical equating of Zionism with racism,
first formulated by the Third World gang,
and are thus challenging "the very essence
of the Jewish State and the honor and
integrity of Israeli supporters including
those of world Jewry."
Perhaps more than anything, we applaud
Abram's reminder that Black silence in the
face of these anti-Semitic attacks, par-
ticularly by the Black intelligentsia, makes
it increasingly difficult for those many
"who want to continue the Black-Jewish
walk together."
The quid pro quo? Declared Abram: Stop
joining all those efforts "to paint Israel as
an outlaw nation, to be driven from the
United Nations and made fair game for
extinction." This is exactly what
Farrakhan himself has done at the UN and
elsewhere. It is Farrakhan whom Jesse
Jackson has refused to repudiate. It is this
kind of racism and anti-Semitism to which
American Blacks appear to react in
seemingly enthusiastic silence.
You want our continued friendship and
our continued support? asks Abram. Then
say it ain't so. Let there be no more Black
silent assent.

Number 29
Mohammed Naguib, first presi-
dent of Egypt after the over-
throw of King Farouk in 1962,
died after a long illness at Cairo's
Kubbeh military hospital.
Naguib was the father figure of
the Egyptian revolution whkh
was masterminded by Col. Gamal
Abdel Nasser, then head of the
young officers conspiracy in the
Egyptian army.
Naguib was a hero of the 1948
Arab-Israeli war who rebelled
against Farouk after Egypt's de-
feat on the battlefield. His
heroism on the battlefield as
second in command of the
Egyptian troops and his anti-
British outlook made him the
rallying center of junior officers
led by Nasser. After the revolu-
tion, Naguib was for over a year
the figurehead of the army junta,
but Nasser easily outsmarted
him in a prolonged power
struggle and put him under house
IN HIS autobiography,
"Egypt's Destiny" (1965),
Naguib claimed the Egyptian
army had been supplied with
faulty weapons and that he had
been opposed to "a formal war in
Palestine and said so at every
He said nothing was to be
gained by demonstrating
Egypt's weakness, and he would
have preferred Egypt to have
confined itself to guerrilla
operations in support of the
internal Arab resistance move-
"Jewish immigration would
have been discouraged, and there
would have been no excuse, in the
absence of formal intervention,
for either recognizing Israel or
imposing an embargo on the sale
of arms to the various Arab
"We might not have won the
war, but at least we would not
have lost it as decisively as we
did. All we achieved by inter
vening openly in Palestine was to
make it possible for the Zionists
to assume the fictional but ef-
fective role of a persecuted
minority fighting for its life."
ALTHOUGH involved in a
bitter and unsuccessful power
struggle with Nasser, the real
leader of the 1962 revolution,
Naguib's memoirs showed that
there was little difference bet-

their wish to see the Arab world
united under Egyptian leader-
Like Nasser, Naguib refused to
recognize Israel within the 1949
armistice lines and demanded the
repatriation of the Palestine
refugees displaced by the war. He
wrote in his book: "We cannot
accept the fact of Israel until its
government agrees to revise its
frontiers and settle the problem
of the Arab refugees in accord-
ance with the resolutions passed
by the United Nations."
Claiming that the greater part
of the 486,000 refugees could be
resettled inside Israel, Naguib
added that "the remainder can
and must be resettled elsewhere."
Israel must compensate those
whose property had been seized
and must contribute a fair share
to the cost of the resettlement
elsewhere of those who were
either unable or unwilling to be
resettled in Israel, Naguib wrote.
LIKE NASSER, too, Naguib
hoped to force Israel to give up
the southern part of the Negev
and its coastal outlet on the Gulf
of Aqaba. The port of Eilat, he
argued, was too far from the
economic heart of Israel to justify
its existence and, in any case,
Egypt would keep the Gulf closed
to Israeli shipping until Israel
had reached "equitable terms"
with its Arab neighbors.
Of his domestic differences
with Nasser, Naguib said they
were ones of tactics rather than of
strategy. Their common belief in
the Egyptian revolution had
never been an issue between
them, he said. Naguib wrote:
Nasser believed that we
could afford to alienate every
segment of Egyptian public
opinion, if necessary, in order to
achieve our goals. I believed ...
that we would need as much
popular support as we could
possibly retain ... I believed, in
short, that half a loaf was better
than none. Nasser believed in
taking greater risks than I
thought were wise in an effort to
obtain the whole loaf. It remains
for the course of history to deter-
mine which of us was right."
AS AN invited outsider the
putative leader of a young of-
ficer's successful coup, Naguib
had been lent the official role of '
authority without the power to
go with it.
Nevertheless, Naguib enter-
tained the ambition to lead the
Egyptians back to a better demo-
cratic government and almost
succeeded for when the clash with
Nasser occurred, Naguib had
acquired formidable popular
support as well as that of the
armored corps.
While the Moslem brotherhood
and the left saw Naguib as a
possible ticket to pwoer against
Nasser's autocracy, the man the
officers hand picked as their
affable docile leader was now in a
position to challenge their
authority and force the army
back to the barracks.
MIDDLE EAST watchers in
London said that the presence of
Egypt's President Hosm
Mubarak at Naguib's military
funeral on Tuesday meant that
the country's first President was
being posthumously given back
some of the popularity he enjoyed
before being deposed by Nasser
in November, 1964. \

Naguib was placed under house
arrest in Marg, 30 miles north of

years in a Large country house

Peki'in in Galilee
Goes Back Long
Way to Dispersal
Friday, September 14,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 5
From a short distance
away, the township of
Peki'in on the border
between Western and
Eastern Galilee is hard to
pick out from the sur-
rounding rock-grey moun-
tains. The houses, built
close to each other, nestle
into the hillside for
maximum shelter from the
winter winds. Narrow
cobbled alleyways designed
to prevent the slipping of
donkey hooves are un-
comfortable for cars.
Though the last ten years have
brought electricity and bottled
gas, there are still many tradi-
tional outside ovens (Tabun) in
the yards, and there are still
women washing at the communal
well. To look at, it ia in-
distinguishable from a score of
other villages scattered round the
hillsides, but the history of
Peki'in makes it unique through-
out the whole of Israel, as it is the
only settlement which has
retained an uninterrupted Jewish
presence from before the
THE LAST remaining family
of Jews living there are the
Zinatis, Guardians of the
Synagogue. They are on excellent
terms with their Druse neigh-
bours, who incidentally saved the
Torah scrolls from marauding
Arabs gangs, but they are very
isolated. For all Jewish services,
they have to go to nearby
Ma'alot. It is a short seven kilo-
meters away, but a long walk on
a Sabbath in the summer or in
the rainy season. Now becuse of
the initiative of a middle-aged

Cyril and Flora Atkins from
Kingston on Thames, Surrey, left
their comfortable middle class
home to come to a windswept
hilltop in Galilee to build up an
establishment for the propaga-
tion of Jewish values among
Jewish youth. Their aim in
Peki'in was to educate Diaspora
youth about their heritage, but to
their surprise they found that
many local youngsters had never
had any such teaching either.
"Build up" was what they lit-
erally did. Together with the
teachers and other staff, they laid
pipes, dug ditches and mixed
cement to get the classrooms and
dormitories ready for the first
THEY ALSO entertain tourist
groups and temporary students
on seminars and courses and the
ancient village of Peki'in is
always part of the program. They
meet with the Zinatis family and
listen to the Druse mayor affirm-
ing the long and cordial connec-
tions with the Jews of the area.
They will be guided to the Jewish
cemetry, for many years cared for
by the villagers, and they will
hear that there has never been
any tension between the Jewish
residents and the locals.
Jewish life in Peki'in is well-
documented. In Biblical times it
was probably known as Baca and
stood marking the boundary
between upper and lower Galilee.
The renowned sage, Simon ben
Yohai, hid for 13 years with his
son, Rabbi Eleazer, from the
Romans in the time of Hadrian,
in a nearby cave now considered
holy. Marked graves of Rabbis
mentioned in the Talmud and the
Zohar have been found near
Under Turkish rule, it is
recorded taxes were collected
from 33-45 Jewish families,
mainly engaged in the cultivation
of silkworms, agriculture and
commerce. The cool breezes and
splendid vistas made it into
something of a resort for the
Jews of Tiberias escaping from
the torrid climate of lower Galilee
in high summer and when plague
struck in the plains in 1602
Peki'in, lapped by healthy winds,
was filled with refugees fleeing
the infection.
Refugees of a different kind
appeared in 1769 when a severe
earthquake shook Saf ad destroy-
ing a good part of the town and
killing many of its citizens. Those

devastation set up a Yeshiva for
the benefit of the town dwellers.

High Tuition Costs
Mortgaged Student Future
Brandeis can't rely on
wealthy alumni not yet.
WALTHAM, Mass. -
Brandeis University
President Evelyn E.
Handler says tuition costs
are leaving students with
mortgaged futures, and
this is the most important
issue in higher education
Handler, who is completing her
first year as president this fall, ia
positioning the 36-year-old uni-
versity for its first major fund-
raising campaign, with increased
student aid as a major goal.
"The first rate education that
Brandeis offers, including a
student-faculty ratio of 10-to-l,
has made it an expensive insti-
tution to support," says Handler,
who expects to mobilize the
university for the capital cam-
paign in 1966.
TUITION COSTS everywhere
are prohibitive, leaving students
with enormous loans to pay off,
and this places a heavy burden on
us to raise money for student aid,
says Handler. Financial assist-
ance of about 112 million will be
given to Brandeis students this
year, including $6 million in
direct grants raised and distrib-
uted by the university itself.
In addition, Handler says, "the
inflation rates of the 1970's are
haunting us, and deferred main-
tenance of the physical plant is
catching up with us now.
"Magnificent science facilities
have been built at Brandeis, but
we need state-of-the-art equip-
ment. And technology has made
it imperative for campuses and
presidents across the country to
develop plans for moderniza-
tion," she adds.
WHILE MOST universities
depend on alumni giving and tui-
tion for major financial support,
Brandeis is so young that the
earliest graduates are only now
reaching their peak earning
power, says Handler. Increasing
the size of the student body to
increase tuition revenue also is
out, she says, because that would
dilute the quality of a Brandeis

Jewish thinkers in this country.
He challenges and provokes us.

It is typical of Yitz Oreenberg

Those who study the
Holocaust are continually tor-
mented by the record of apathy in
the rest of the world during this
debauch of evil. Recently there
was great turmoil when the
Goldberg Commission sought to
assess responsibility for
American Jewish failures to
respond. But remembering the
past is not an end in itself. And
remembering in order to scape-
goat the past is a form of patho-
logy. In the Biblical tradition, we
remember in order that behavior
be changed. "You shall not
torment the stranger for you

were strangers in the land of

Afghanistan are about to be
removed by President Reagan. In
an election year, the Reagan
administration wishes to soften
its image of being excessively
hardline on Russia. There is
constant media criticism at the
poor state of U.S.-Russian rela-
tions. Thre is no profit indeed,
there is real political cost in
maintaining pressure on the
USSR on the Afghan issue.
But is the situation in
Afghanistan better? On
thecontrary, in an attempt to
crush the stubborn guerilla
resistance, the USSR is waging a
ruthless war against civilians.

The upgraded tanks have also
been equipped with a locally-pro-

laser rangefinder which ensures
the gunner of a first-shot hit on
his target. This reduces the
chance of a return hit by an

also fitted with special weather
protection so that the firing is
more accurate.

are ordered to kill Afghan
villagers in cold blood. At a press
conference, they said: "An officer
decides to have a village searched
. What usually happened is we
found a cartridge or a bullet. The
officers said: 'This is a bandit
village. It must be destroyed.'
. The men and the young men
are usually shot right where they
are. And the women, what they
do is try to kill them with
grenades ." (The New York
Times, June 28,1984)
Dr. Claude Malurec, director of
Me'decins sans Frontie'res
(Doctors Without Borders), an
organization sending medical
teams to conflict areas all over
the world, spoke at Harvard. His
organization has equipped and
operated 12 hospitals in Afghan-
istan, four of which have been
bombed and destroyed by the
Soviets. According to Malurec:
Rather than gaining control by
seeking native support in villages
and towns, the Soviets are at-
tempting to take over Afghan-
istan by terrorizing its people.
Tactics include: pillaging and
burning villages, executing
inhabitants and, increasingly,
heavy air strikes. Mines and
booby traps dropped by heli-
copters further terrorize the
Afghans. The mines are not
designed to kill but to injure. An
injured person immobilizes
fighters and lowers morale as he
dies slowly. About 2.5 million
Afhans have fled to Pakistan and
several hundred thousand to
Dr. Malurec stressed that the
lack of news reports is the key to
Soviet strategy: "International
public opinion would never ac-
cept such enormities if it were
kept informed daily on devel-
opments," said the doctor.
The American public should be
rallying to the Afghan cause.
Instead, the exhaustion of media
interest (the story is almost five
years old), the pressure for good
news with Russia and the dovish
tendencies of the public are lead-
ing to an abandonment of the
Afghans. Of what significance
can some increased cultural
contacts with Russia or the open-
ing of cultural attache offices in
Chicago and Kiev be which are
bought at the price of indifference
to quasi-genocide in
When Hitler was considering
his destruction of the Jews, some
underlings objected that the
Nazis could not get away with it.
Hitler argued that once the
assault was made, people would
soon tire of the subject and
accept the deed. He is reputed to
have backed his argument by
referring to the Turkish massacre
of the Armenians in World War I
which had long since been over-
looked. He is reputed to have
said: "Who now remembers the
Armenians?" The silence and
short memory of the world about
that massacre encouraged the
murderous plot to destroy Jewry.
In light of its memory of the
Hlocaust, the Jewish community
should be doubly sensitive to any
brushing of the Afghanistan
story under the rug for the sake
of electoral 'politics as usual.'
Jews are known to be more
dovish and supportive of detente
than the average American voter.
Even if other Americans forget,
Jews should signal the Admin-
istration that detente attitudes
should not lead to moral apathy
to the fate of the Afghans.
Recently, a friend of mine, an
important Jewish leader, dis-
missed Commentary magazine as
'warmongering' for its coverage
of the Afghanistan story. This is
outrageous. A critical test of
Jewish morality in our time is
that our suffering sensitize us
more to the oppression of others.
Jews should know that just as
upholding constitutional rights
for minorities is good for Jewish
rights too, so does taking moral
responsibility for others increase
protection for Jews. Hillel's
summary of the Torah should be
updated as a good moral guide
for those who preserve the
memory of the Holocaust: "What
was hateful to you, do not allow
to be done to others."

For all practical purposes, the

number of JTS faculty members
were and some still remain
in adamant opposition.

which filed a friend of thecourt

though it involved COLPA in a
legal battle in which neither
contestant was Jewish, was
nevertheless in conformity with
the agency's commitment to the
principle that a university is

dorse positions hostile to the
school's philosophy.
In the first legal test of the

meeting, Yehuda Blum, Israel's

"house was literally on fire in its
capital of Beirut." He said that
the Council was called into
session as a result of syrian pres-
sure and domestic rivalries in
sador, Rath id Fakhoury, who
opened the meeting, called for
implementation of past Security
Council resolutions to get Israel's
troops out of south Lebanon. In a
sharply worded statement, the
Lebanese representative assailed
the continued Israeli occupation
of South Lebanon.
He charged that the civilian
population in south Lebanon has
been living under "a continued
state of terror" because of the
"excesses of Israeli occupation."
He demanded that Israel "lift its
siege" of south Lebanon.
Blum reiterated Israel's claim
that it wants to withdraw from
Lebanon as soon as proper
security arrangements to prevent
terrorist attacks against Israel
are set. But, he added, "Israel
will not sit by and permit anyone
to incite, arm and direct terror-
ists to mount attacks against it."
DIPLOMATIC sources at the
UN said that Lebanon will ask
the Council to adopt a resolution
calling for immediate and
complete Isreli withdrawal from
Lebanon and demanding that
Israel relax its measures against
the civilian population in south
Lebanon. According to the
sources, the Lebanese will seek a
relatively moderate resolution,
without even condemning Israel,
in order to avoid a United States
undertaken by a specific club
and which requires that an
organization aid "the univer-

stiff competition among top
notch colleges for the best
students, applications for admis-
sion to Brandeis for this acad-

last year.
Handler attributes this, in
great part, to recognition of the
university's "understanding and
commitment to its Jewish roots
intellectual, moral and ethical
goals that have created a great
American university which
remains true to the philosophical
precepts of its founders.
"That is the liberal arts tradi-

that sutdents who pass through

that their lives be broadened by a

they are able to analyze, write

that Assad has invited Mit-

That "To ignore the universal-

ignore the meaning of Jewish
monotheism. God is meleeh ha

and all the inhabitants thereof.
To mock Jewish universalism is
to miss the meaning of God's
creation of the whole universe."
The Rabbi supported his
contention by extensive quota-
tions from Biblical, Talmudic,
and post-Talmudic sources,
including the Biblical injunction
that there should be "one law for
the home-born and for the
stranger that lives among you,"
and the Talmudic directive to
"feed the hungry of the gentiles,
visit the sick of the gentiles, and
comfort the bereaved of the

poor and afflicted."

"there is a need for a reemphasis

"would not, however, predefine

He said he did not think that
"the Jewish approach on issues
such as abortion or definition of
death, or even equality, would
necessarily conform to what we
would describe as liberal. The
issue is not a return to liberalism
as much as it is an honest return
to Jewish roots."
Jewish involvement in the
social problems that confront
society, Berman declared, is "not
a matter of philosophical or
esthetic preference, but is a
matter of religious obligation.''
As an example of how Jewish
law relates to contemporary
issues, Berman turned to the
subject of abortion. The con-
temporary debate on this issue,
he said, "has been conducted

He noted that Israel was not only foreign force there,

that another United States goal was that the "security of
Israel's northern border must be in tandem" with Israeli
withdrawal from south Lebanon.
Hughes had no comment on the nited Nations

Israel's activities in south Lebanon. "We hope for a
constructive outcome of the debate," he said.

in the old Synagogue, restored a
century ago, and hope to expand
the school premises into some of
the empty buildings attached to
it. This has been tried by small
groups or individual families in
the past but without success
because the attempts were not
properly organized. A long term
plan to set up a workable popula-

by Jewish settlers, needs a lot of
foresight and knowledge of the
possible snags.
Even the most dedicated
pioneers are reluctant to make
long-term commitments for

such primitive and inconvenient

The World Council for Yiddish
and Jewish Culture, headed by
Yitzhak Korn, a member of
Israel's Labor Party and a former
MK, the Arts Academy of West

representing various arts and

create a center for a Yiddish

The three parliamentarians
said in their letter that there is a
possibility of establishing such a
center at the Hebbel Theater in
West Berlin, which is presently
vacant. From this center, tours of
the EEC member states could be
organized. That was the reason,

members said, for requesting
financial aid aimed at "safe-
guarding the Yiddish tradition
which represents one of the facets
of European diversity."

it was fully aware of the im-

Malaysia Charged
With 'Lamentable,
Blatant' Racism
Chiles Appointed to
Israel Friendship League
Sen. Lawton Chiles, D-Fla.,
has been named "honorary
sponsor" of the America-Israel
Friendship League.
Welcoming the appointment,
Chiles commented: "On a per-
sonal basis, anyone who has ever
lost a good friend knows how
devastating that can be. A close
relationship nurtured over a long
period of time can never be re-
placed. This is the kind of
friendship Israel and the United
States have enjoyed, and we
must work hard to preserve it."
To foster understanding and
strengthen the American-Israeli
bond, AIFL helps develop com-
munity-based educational and
cultural programs focused on
Israel, programs involving
Christian and Jewish Americans
alike. It also sponsors visits to
Israel for American functionaries
from key groups and conducts
exchange programs for young
people from the two countries.
Sen. Chiles joins 12 other
At a United Nations
session here, Malaysia has
been accused of a "lament-
able exercise of blatant
racism and religious
discrimination" over its
efforts to force the New
York Philharmonic
Orchestra to drop from its
program a musical work by
a Jewish composer based
on a Habrew theme.
Daniel Lack, speaking on
behalf of the World Jewish
Congress and B'nai B'rith,
blasted the action of the
Malaysian government at a
session of the UN Human Rights
subcommission on the eliminatio
of religious intolerance.
LACK SAID "religious in-
tolerance is openly avowed when
... a world renowned symphony
orchestra is forbidden to perform
a work by a Swiss American
composer because of his Jewish
ancestry and the fact that the
work has a Hebrew title."
He told the delegates that this
is not the only instance of anti-
Jewish discrimination in the
world. "The boycott conducted
by members of the League of
Arab States against Israel,
directed against nationals of
other countries solely by refer-
ence to their Jewish faith" is a
"particularly disquieting and
obnoxious example of racial and
religious discrimination," Lack

Askew, former President Gerald
Ford, Democratic Presidential
nominee Walter Mondale and
U.S. House Speaker Thomas P.
(Tip) O'Neill.
He pointed out that the United
States, France, Belgium, Holland
and Luxemburg had adopted
laws against discrimination on
grounds of race and religion
which make such practices a
punishable offense.
IN SYRIA, Lack stated, "its
small Jewish population of 4,000
persons is kept hostage in a
harshly restrictive environment
of discrimination and oppres-
sion." In an apparent reference to
the Soviet Union, he noted that
"in the case of one large national
Jewish minority, the teaching of
Hebrew is systematically banned
... as part of a regrettable
practice of denial of adequate
religious facilities."
Lack concluded by citing posi-
tive instances "of model national
action to foster religious intol-
erance." In Italy, negotiations
are being concluded between the
Jewish community and state
authorities providing for equality
of treatment in religious affairs.
Similarly, Spanish authorities are
presently in the process of
concluding an agreement with its
Jewish community guaranteeing
its rights and status.
Lack asked that these positive
developments be viewed "as il-
lustrative of the standards to be
emulated by other states in the
promotion of understanding,
tolerance, and respect with the
fundamental right to freedom of
thought, conscience and
task force of the federal Depart-
ment of Agriculture and the New
York State Kosher Law Enforce-
ment Division is collecting
evidence against the owner of a
multi-million dollar whole-sale
firm supplying kosher and non-
kosher meat in the Catskill resort
area in the belief that the owner
has been selling non-kosher meat
as kosher to many hotels in that
Sources who asked not to be
quoted by name said that the
New York State Department of
Agriculture and Markets, parent
agency of the Kosher Law En-
forcement Division, had seized
more than 1,000 pounds of
suspect meat at the wholesale
factory in Woodridge, N.Y. The
sources said that the confiscated
meat would be part of the
evidence against the wholesaler.
Efforts to determine whether
the wholesaler would get a
hearing on the charges with a
possible fine or face criminal
charges were futile. James Mc-
Cormick, compliance officer of
the federal Agriculture Depart-
ment, said he could not comment
on the matter at the current stage
of investigation.
Rabbi Shulem Rubin, director
of the State Kosher Law Enforce-
ment Division, gave the same
reply to questions about when
the task force probe began and
how long the wholesaler had been
engaged in the alleged violation
of the state's protection law
against fraud in distribution of
kosher products.
