Federation Sends Aid To
Ethiopia Famine Victims
South County Jewish Federation has allocated $2,500 for the
Ethiopian famine relief, Federation president Marianne Bobick
announced yesterday.
The money has been sent to the American Joint Distribution
Committee, which has undertaken to coordinate relief efforts on
behalf of Jewish organizations and individuals, in cooperation
with Catholic, Protestant and secular agencies engaged in relief
work for the famine victims.
"We must not ignore the cry for help from these people,
hundreds of whom are dying of starvation every day," Mrs.
Bobick said. She urged all concerned individuals who wish to
contribute additional funds to send their checks (made out to
SCJF Ethiopian Relief Fund) to the Federation offices at 336
Spanish River Blvd., N., Boca Raton 33431.

Among other things, the Jor-

Jordanian armor unlike the
older Hawks they currently have

As for the Saudis, despite their

orders would include the newly

would be in addition to inter-
ceptor versions of the F-15 they
already are getting and which,
incidentally, they want to aug-

The Saudis are also seeking

German Courts Warned to Quit
Going Easy on Sentenced Nazis
BONN (JTA) Federal Court in Karlsruhe, from
which there is no appeal, has served notice on lower courts
throughout West Germany to end the fairly common
practice of suspending prison sentences imposed on neo-
Nazis. The court deplored probation for neo-Nazis which
can be viewed by the public as unjustified softness toward
rightwing extremism.
THE RULING, which set an important precedent in
meting out justice to neo-Nazi offenders, was handed
down in the case of a man found guilty of disseminating
anti-Semitic propaganda over a long period. A court in
Stuttgart sentenced him to two years' imprisonment but
then suspended the sentence. The suspension was ap-
pealed by the State Prosecutor.
The immediate effect of the Karlsruhe court order is
that this defendant will have to serve out his two-year
Mitterrand Back From
Syria Empty-Handed
PARIS (JTA) President Francois Mitterrand's
two-day state visit to Syria appears to have been an exer-
cise in appeasement that failed to resolve the sharp policy
differences between France and Syria or to budge Presi-
dent Hafez Assad from his hardline position in the Middle
East conflict.
Mitterrand "went out of his way,'' according to many
observers, to avoid anything that could be considered "a
provocation" to the Syrians. French officials said he
believed this was the best way to induce Assad to join the
peace process and to improve relations between the two
AT A PRESS conference in
Damascus before his departure,
Mitterrand hailed Assad as key
personality" in the Middle East
and exonerated Syria from any
role in a series of terrorist attacks
that have taken many French
lives in recent months. Assad
denied any involvement in the
attacks, and "I see no reason why
I should doubt his words," Mit-
terrand said.
But Syria stands accused by
several French ministers and
senior officials and by virtually
the entire media of having
planned and probably carried out
the assassination of the French
ambassador in Beirut in 1981; of
masterminding the suicide attack
on French headquarters in Beirut
in October, 1982, in which 58
French paratroopers were killed;
and having carried out the attack

News Digest
Friday. December 14,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Compiled from the Israeli daily
aDers and the Anglo-Jewish
,nss by Marty Erann, Director
[Communications, South Coun-
y Jewish Federation.
The Federation Voice of Rhode
sland quotes federal court Judge
ivmond Pettine as saying that
ent court decisions such as
. Supreme Court decision
upholding the constitutionality
Df displaying a Nativity scene on
public property are a threat to
.iigious freedom guaranteed in
the First Amendment.
(The issue which came before
Lhe Supreme Court began with
the controversial creche erected
on public property in Pawtucket,
{node Island. In many muni-
ipalities since, Christian mayors
jave nixed public erection of such
scenes at city expense, taking
jsue with the Supreme Court
view a decision of five to four
|- that the Nativity scenes are
"cultural symbols" rather than of
ireligious nature).
Judge Pettine reportedly told
i audience at Temple Emanu-El
Providence that in his home
there is only a creche for Christ -
as, but no Christmas tree; that
this is his way of practicing his
lief, with the support and ap-
proval of Jews, just as he sup-
Drts and respects their right to
contrary worship. "This mutual
ourtesy and reverence can be
severely endangered by govern-
ent encroachment."
The Jewish Host and Opinion,
Dn creches, reports that the
ieagan administration lost no
time in implementing the
Supreme Court ruling the
federally-sponsored Christmas
Pageant of Peace, sponsored by
the National Parks Service, will
have a Nativity scene. On the
Dther hand, says the Post, the
nay or of Charlottes ville, Virginia
|(homc of Thomas Jefferson),
barred the Jaycees from putting
[up a creche on public property,
saying it was not a cultural
Bymbol but a religious one.
The Jewish Week reports that
the National Conference of Black
..awyers hastened last week to
disavow a statement by one of its
officials who pledged the group's
support to the PLO. The state-
ent had been made by Adrien
Ving, who serves as UN observer
lor the group, to the Palestine
National Council which met in
^mman. Jordan. The lawyers'
roup, some 1,000 strong, has a
Jngstanding record of anti-
Israel positions, but has recently
taken some pains to dissociate

Pefamation League, says The
The Israeli press was in an

Party to travel via Cyprus to

cials during the meeting of the

employees of new car agencies
(the vast majority of automobiles
are imported from Europe) have
been laid off, as car sales have
been declining sharply.
Yediot also carries reports
from Jordan, received from Dr.
Amnon Kapeliuk (obviously
travelling with a non-Israeli
passport M.E.), who had
earlier visited Yemen and re-
ported on the handful of Jews
still living there. Dr. Kapeliuk

companied President Francois
Mitterrand on a recent visit
Ma'ariv reports in a front-page
article on a Georgetown Univer-
sity (Washington, D.C.) study
which claims that Israel is cap-
able of producing six nuclear
warheads per year, and has the
missile and jet capabilities for
sending them to both long- and
medium-range objectives. Within
hours, according to the study,
Israel can activate more than 20
nuclear weapons today .
In another story, Ma'ariv tells
of an operation by religious
extremists in Jerusalem who
staked out the residence of a
prostitute in order to trap mem-
bers of their sect frequenting her
establishment They grabbed
the culprits and forced them to
yield their ID cards, which they
then brought to their Rebbe. In
some cases, reportedly, they also
beat up the clients. The prosti-
tute, whose business was suffer-
ing, could not get rid of the
vigilantes until she came out one
evening and began to strip in
front of them they then took
off like lightning.

Readers Write
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian.
The article on Nov. 30 on
Rabbi Meir Kahane by Justin J.
Finger of the Anti-Defamation
League was a most scurrilous at-
tack on Rabbi Kahane.
Since 1969. when Rabbi
Kahane appeared on the Jewish
scene as founder of the Jewish
Defense League, these defa-
matory attacks have been leveled
at Kahane and the JDL, with the
Anti-Defamation League often in
the forefront. They cannot find
any positive reasons for the
continuing increase in Kahane s
popularity. Their hatred of him is
Finger suggests that only
Rabbi Kahane and his followers
are causing the trouble in Israel
and the Knesset no mention of
Arab and Communist members
of the Knesset causing any
trouble. He implies that the
Arabs in Israel would cooperate
with the Jews if only Kahane
were silenced. I have never heard
such an absurdity.
Finger condemns Kahane
because he has spent time in
prison, but the truth is he has
been imprisoned because of his
brave and glorious fight for
Soviet Jews and world Jewry .
It was Rabbi Kahane and his
JDL who helped organize Jewish
merchants (like myself) to defend
themselves against rioters and
looters. It was Rabbi Kahane
who first raised the problem of
poor and aged Jews who were be-
ing abandoned by the wealthier
Jews in ghetto neighborhoods. I
could fill a book with the list of
services Rabbi Kahane has per-
formed, his dedication and
mitzvos in behalf of the Jewish
The Jewish establishment
organizations and their profes-
sional spokesmen are living in a
dream world. Maybe some day
the Jewish people and Israel will
be allowed to live in peace, but
right now, thank G-d, there is a
Rabbi Kahane to act as a catalyst
reminding Israel's enemies that
"never again" is a Jewish credo.
Israel has many problems, and
Rabbi Kahane is the least of
them. Israel MUST remain a
Jewish country. If the Arabs be-
come the majority there, she will
become another Lebanon and will
be destroyed as a Jewish state.
(G-d forbid.) No Arab can oe ex-
pected to remain a loyal citizen to
a Jewish state when there's an
Arab majority. That is what
Rabbi Kahane is trying to tell the
Jewish people.

INote to readers: After the ad
by Meshulam Riklis appeared in
The Jewish Floridian, just before
the November elections, we re-
ceived several four to be exact
telephone calls from staunch
Democrats who were outraged.
What the callers said did not
merit any reaction, but this
letter, the first cogent and intel-
ligent response to the ad,
deserves to be made public. As to
what ads should or should not be
accepted, apart from the question
of freedom of speech, the practice
of this publication is not different
from that of any other legitimate
publications, including the New
York Times and all prominent
Anglo-Jewish papers which
carried the ad)
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I am wondering what stan-
dards you have for accepting ads.
Is it "anything goes?"
You ran a full-page ad contain-
ing the political message of
Meshulam Riklis. At least one of
the statements in that ad was so
outrageous that it should never
have appeared, particularly in a
Jewish publication. I wrote the
following to Mr. Riklis:
Dear Mr. Riklis.
The fact that you as a million-
aire are favoring the Republicans
is hardly surprising. The fact
that you are able to use your
considerable resources to pay for
full-page ads to further your
point of view doesn 't disturb me
What does disturb me is the
comparison you draw between
the Democratic Party and the
Nazi Party of Germany. I find
that contention uncalled for. out-
rageous and odious to put it
You take a legitimate point of
criticism regarding the Dem-
ocratic Party platform and carry
it to such an extreme of exag-
geration that you not only fail to
make your point but enrage those
you wish to persuade.
If you want to address "Jew-
ish" issues in this campaign, then
you ought to take off your
blinders regarding the GOP. How
can you ignore the fact the so-
called Moral Majority crowd
appears to control the GOP on
certain issues? They want
prayers in schools "their"
prayers, of course; they want to
"Christianize" America; they
aim to blur the line that separates
church and state. One of the
Radical Right preachers even
declared that "God does not hear
the prayers of a Jew." Those are
the kinds of bigots Ronald
Reagan caters to.
Let'8 face it: there are bigots
and anti-Semitism in both
parties. If you are going to make
lists, then be even-handed and
show the other side of the coin
too. But despite all the bigots in
the Republican Party, I would
certainly not compare the GOP to
the Nazis.
One other point: You claim
that Israel likes the Reagan
Administration. When I was in
Israel (during the Nixon Admin-
istration), some Israelis told me
they liked Nixon. Does that mean
Nixon was a good president, or
that I should have voted for him?
I didn't think much of Begin, but
that doesn't mean I have the
right to tell Israelis who they
should vote for for prime min-
ister. And I'm not going to be
influenced by the allegation that

Darousha's 'Shuttle' Signals
New Political Activism
Israel's political es-
tablishment was badly
shaken last week by the de-
termined though aborted
effort by an Arab Labor
Party Knesset member to
address the Palestine Na-
tional Council (PNC) meet-
ing in Amman, Jordan, the
so-called Palestinian parlia-
ment-in-exile, convened by
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization chief Yasir Ar-
But the instant political storm
raised by the attempts of Abdel
Wahab Darousha, the only Arab
on the Labor Party election list
last July, to reach Amman via
Cyprus, was of secondary im-
portance. Most significant in the
long term, political pundits
agree, is the political transfor-
mation of Israel's 700.000 Arab
citizens that Darousha's move
clearly implies.
the majority of Israeli Arabs will
no longer settle for the status of
passive bystanders in the Arab-
Israeli conflict. Their leaders will
no longer limit themselves to
local issues such as electricity
and water supplies or sewage
disposal in Israel's Arab towns
and villages. Instead, they are
determined to play an active role
in the overall political debate that
occupies Israeli society.
Until now, such a role was
confined to the largely
discredited Communist Party in
its expanded form known as
Hadash, which in past elections
attracted the majority of Arab
Israeli votes, those of radicals
and nationalists alike. The
"moderate'' Arabs aligned
themselves with the Zionist
parties, among which Labor and
its erstwhile partner Mapam were
easily the strongest in the Arab
line from Moscow. But instead of
switching to Labor, many gave
their votes to the Progressive
List For Peace, a new faction
composed of Arab nationalists
and dove-ish Jews, left of center
but not communist.
polled well over 38,000 votes,
winning two Knesset seats, as
many as the old established
Agudat Israel Party and former
Defense Minister Ezer Weiz-
man's new Yahad Party.
It was a remarkable showing
for a new faction that describes
the PLO as the legitimate repre-
sentative of the Palestinian
people. Darousha has made no
such claim.
An official of the Education
Ministry in Iksal village near
Nazareth, he was an obscured
figure until nominated to the
Labor Party list. But unlike past
Arab Labor candidates who
scrupulously followed orders
from Party headquarters.
Darousha asserted his indepen-
dence from the start of the
election campaign. He spoke
openly of the need to establish a
Palestinian state alongside Israel
which is in direct conflict with the
Labor Party platform.
He threatened not to join the
Labor-Likud unity coalition
unless certain demands were met.
Then, on Tuesday of last week,
without prior consultation with
the Labor Party chiefs and,
according to them, without even
a hint of his intentions, he left for
Amman by way of Cyprus.
HIS PURPOSE, he said in an
interview with the magazine
Koteret Rashit, published after
his departure, was to address the
PNC in his capacity as a Knesset
member of the governing
coalition, to try to convince the
PLO to abandon terrorism in
favor of dialogue with Israel and
to work toward mutual

on an anti-Syrian Arab
newspaper in Paris which led to
the expulsion of two Syrian
diplomats from France.
It is not yet known whether
Mitterrand met with members of
the Syrian Jewish community
while in Damascus or whether he
raised with Assad thessue of
Syrian Jews.
BEFORE HIS departure for
Syria the French president
promised Theo Klein, president
of the Representative Council of
Major French Jewish Organi-
zations (CRIF), that he would do
so if the opportunity arose.
Before leaving Damascus, Mit-
terrand did visit the "Jweish
Hall" in the Syrian National
Museum and an old synagogue
which was reconstructed as an
architectural treasure.
Mitterrand was to fully brief
Israeli Premier Shimon Peres on
talks in Damascus when
reres visits Paris this week, and
officials here said he would relate
to the Israeli leader several
points not made public.
But reports from Damascus
during Mitterrand's stay gave no
indication that Assad has yielded
on any points. The Syrian presi-
dent made clear from the start
that Syria will accept no peace
agreement with Israel without a
prior promise by Israel to "return
all Arab lands."
Israel Doesn't Bend
To U.S. Pressure
A study of U.S.-Israel relations
during the last decade, published
by Tel Aviv University's Jaffee
Center for Strategic Studies,
shows that the U.S. has been
largely unsuccessful in attempts
at using coercion to force changes
in Israeli military and diplomatic
Time after time, Israel has
ignored American threats and
emerged from various forms of
diplomatic punishment with its
policies intact, according to
"Alliance Politics and the Limits
of Influence: the Case of the U.S.
and Israel, 1975-1983," by Dr.
Abraham Ben-Zvi.
In this detailed account of four
case studies in which the U.S.
pressured Israel, Dr. Ben-Zvi
finds that "the preconditions for
the pursuit of an effective coer-
cive diplomacy did not material-
ize within the framework of
American-Israeli relations."
Coercion attempts were thwarted
by domestic and regional as well
as global factors: support for
Israel by the Congress and the
American public; Arab intransi-
gence; and Soviet encouragement
of the Arab rejectionist front.
Dr. Ben-Zvi, acting chairman
of Tel Aviv University's depart-
ment of political science and a
senior researcher at JCSS,
considers the following cases:
The 1975 reassessment of U.S.
policy towards Israel after
Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer failed to conclude an in-
terim agreement between Israel
and Egypt; the American-Soviet
1977 statement on the Middle
East, which demanded that
Israel modify its Palestinian
policy; the Reagan administra-
tion's decision to suspend del-
ivery of F-16 fighter bombers
after Israel's raids on Iraq's
nuclear reactor and the PLO
headquarters in Beirut; and the
punitive measures taken after the
"Peace for Galilee" operation in
In every case where Israel saw
its policies as vital. U.S. influence
made few inroads. One of the
major reasons for Israel's success
in withstanding U.S. pressure
was the vast reservoir of public
sympathy for Israel, which pre-
vented formation of a consensus
for the government's coercive
policies. Sympathy for Israel was
eroded during the war in
Lebanon, leading to broader
public and congressional support
for punitive steps against Israel.
This should serve as a warning
for the future, Dr. Ben-Zvi notes.

New Hadassah Chapter in Lausanne
Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of America,
has established a new chapter of
the Hadassah Medical Relief
Association in Lausanne,
Switzerland, Bernice S. Tan-
nenbaum, Hadassah national
HMRA chairman, announces.
The Lausanne unit is the first
in Europe and the second outside
the United States established
since Hadassah made the deci-
sion in August, 1983, to expand
worldwide its educational and
fundraising activities on behalf of
medical research and health care
projects in Israel, Mrs. Tan-
nenbaum said.
The first international chapter
was set up in Israel in October,
1983. She added that many addi-
tional groups in Switzerland and
France are in the active process
of being organized.
Dr. Seymour P. Lachman.
dean and professor of education
of the City University of New
York, is the first American acad-
emic to be elected to membership
in the Council of Everyman's
University of Israel, the supreme
authority of Israel's Open
University headed by Mrs.
James A. deRothschild.
Dr. Lachman returned this
week from Israel where he at-
tended the council's annual
meeting, commencement exer-
cises for the university's third
graduation class and a dinner
under the patronage of Mayor
Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem, to
inaugurate "Jerusalem Through-
out the Ages," the university's
latest multimedia academic
At the graduation ceremony,
Meir Shamgar, president of the
Israeli Supreme Court, delivered
an address on "Crime and
Morality," and Jacob Rothschild
of London also spoke.
An agreement has been
reached by the World Federation
of Polish Jews and the Polish
government for the restoration of
Jewish cemeteries desecrated
during World War II.
Exhaustive surveys of existing
Jewish cemeteries have revealed
some 400 potential sites. Of
these, some 140 can be
adequately identified and reha-
bilitated, according to Stefan
Grajek, head of the organization.
K aim an Sultanik, president of
the Federation of Polish Jews in
the United States, says that an
appeal is being made to take part
in the restoration task.

Valley of Israel," former Israeli
Minister of Science and Develop-
ment Yuval Ne'eman said that
Jewish settlements in Judea and
Samaria are becoming the back-
bone of "Israel's economy of the
Appearing on International
Dateline, produced by Americans
for a Safe Israel for National
Jewish Television, Ne'eman dis-
missed as "complete nonsense"
the charge that Jewish settle-
ment in Judea and Samaria has
been a burden on the Israeli
He said that under the Likud
government allocations for
settlement totalled only one-half
of one percent of Israel's budget,
and that the settlements have
"attracted young people with
good education" in high techno-
logy fields.
One of Israel's leading nuclear
physicists, Ne'eman, a former
president of Tel Aviv University,

Council of Young Israel. His
appointment is announced by
President Harold M. Jacobs. He
will have the title of executive
director, and will work as an
assistant to executive vice pres-

Rabbi Winter is a graduate of
Yeshiva University. He received
semicha from the Rabbi Isaac

and master's degrees from both
the Ferkauf and Revel graduate

The self-image of working
women in Israel is comparable to
that of American blacks before
the civil rights movement, ac-
cording to a study by the Insti-
tute for Social Research of Tel
Aviv University made public this
The study, based on interviews
with 1,040 workers 682 men
and 368 women found that
Israeli women do not see them-
selves as disadvantaged, despite
their low status in the labor
Of the men interviewed, 40.4
percent felt they were not ade-
quately paid for their work, while
only 31.6 percent of the women
felt that way. The study found
the women were "somewhat more
satisfied than males with their
jobs" in general and that they
expressed similar degrees of
satisfaction with various specific
job rewards, such as wages and
The study likens the situation
of Israeli working women to that
of black Americans prior to the
civil rights movement of the
1960s. Like blacks of that era,
Israel's working women today
have not yet developed a feeling
of "fraternal deprivation," the
report said, as evidenced by the

Rabbi Sathan Zeluer
We All Dream But Only Few Follow Thru
Dreams are the most fantastic disturbances that provoke and
entertain human thought. In dreams we are uninhibited: we become
large or small, handsome or unbecoming, strong or weak. In dreams
we are not confined by limitations of time and space. In dreams we
break all natural laws and lose all sense of proportion.
The dreamer who wrote Isaiah chapter 35, "The wilderness and
the dry land shall rejoice and blossom as the lily. He will come and
save you. .," visualized springs gushing out cool water in the
blistering desert, transformed into a real oasis, as it happened to
Moses years before. He dreamt of a highway going directly from
Babylon to Jerusalem. The superhighway would have no sharp curves.
A great Divine bulldozer would knock the tops of the mountains into
the valley, to smooth off the grade on which the road would be built.
Only Jews who obeyed God's commandments would be permitted on
this superhighway to Jerusalem. This was a fantastic dream and it
was fulfilled, after 2000 years, in 1948.
We Jews were not the only dreamers. Other people also dreamt
dreams. In Chicago during the great depression, a black pastor told
his poverty-stricken congregation that, even if they were poor in this
world's goods, they were God's millionaires. Yes, the worse things
become, the more men dream of a brighter future. "Hope springs
eternal in the soul of man.'' Of course, there are still black people and
poverty-stricken of all races and creeds who have not become
millionaires. It is not very satisfying to learn about the rewards of
heaven, while your children are in need.
Is it then a waste of 'ime to dream dreams? No. Dreams are the
fabric of which life is made. Dreams have lifted man from the animal
stage of humanity. A man's dreams are his guiding passions.
Dreaming and hoping for a better future have been the charac-
teristic of the Jewish people since the days of Abraham. Of course, like
Joseph the Dreamer, our people have been disliked, hated, persecuted
because of our dreams and our ideals. We had the capacity to dream
even under the most adverse conditions.
The story of Chanukah is the story of a dream that was followed
through in spite of all odds against the Maccabees. Hellenism.' with its
worship of the beautiful and the material, looked upon Judaism, with
its dreams of a better world, as its deadliest foe. Judaism and
Hellenism could not stand on the same platform. There could be no
peace between them for they were two diametrically opposed cultures.
Paganism was for all that was practical and immediately enjoyable.
Judaism was visionary. It dreamt of a future which had little in
common with the real present. The vast armies of the materialistic
Greeks tried to crush a handful of Jews who championed the cause of
the ideal and the spirit. Chanukah commemorates the triumph of the
The dream of the Maccabees was an extension of the dreams of all
the Jewish heroes of the past. Jacob had a dream. It was followed by
the dream of Joseph. Of course. Pharaoh too had a dream. But there
was a difference between the dreams of Jacob and Joseph and the
dream of Pharaoh, as the Bible points out. "Jacob awoke from his
dream and said, Behold. God is in this place and I knew it not" (Gen.
28:16). About Pharaoh we read (Gen. 41:5), "And Pharaoh awoke and
went to sleep again." Jacob's dream was followed by action and
dedication to further the cause of the spirit. Pharaoh did not follow
through. He fell into deep slumber again.
Many leaders of many nations had dreams, goals, challenges to
lift up the world, but great was the suffering of their victims because
only a glimpse took place, a brief awakening, followed by an era of
sleeping, and inaction. Washington, Lincoln and others had dreams
for the betterment of men but to this day discrimination, hunger and
poverty still pervade. This is true of many other nations, including the
State of Israel where many of the dreams of the Founders of the State
are not being implemented. As American Jews, we certainly should be
grateful for the State of Israel, but we should not be satisfied. Let us
not be like Pharaoh and fall back into deep slumber, because of the
achievements of part of our dream.
As American Jews it is our moral duty not to compromise our
views of the visions and dreams of our dreamers of the past and like
Joseph of old we should continue saying to the world, "Listen, please,
to this dream which I have dreamt."

Soviet Jewry update
The investigation of the case
against Hebrew teacher
KHOLMIANSKY was expected
to conclude in November with the
trial to begin in early December.
Aleksandr has now been held
without trial for three months, a
violation of the Soviet Criminal
Procedures Code, which allows a
maximum detention of two
months before trial, unless the
case is "especially complicated."
A doctor at the prison reported
Kholmiansky's condition to be
"satisfactory," although he has
been on a hunger strike since
mid-September and is now being
force-fed. Aleksandr refused a
parcel of food brought to the
Tallinn prison by his mother,
ROZALIA, saying it would "just
be wasted."
Meanwhile, hunger strikes

in 10 Soviet cities. In a letter to
the Procurator General,
Kholmiansky's sister-in-law,

would coincide with the Soviet
commemoration of the Great
October Revolution. MIKHAIL
KHOLMIANSKY, who staged a
second five-day fast, was
questioned by the KGB and
warned that his activity is
placing him "in jeopardy."

economist spent the last 11 years
of his life in refusal, repeatedly
denied the right to repatriate to
Israel. He was first refused an
exit visa on the grounds that his
brother, ALEKSANDR, was
allegedly exposed to "secret
documents" in his work as an
electronics engineer. In
December, 1983, Arkady and his
brother were told by OVIR of-
ficials that their applications for
emigration could "no longer" be

Obviously, Jordan and Saudi
Arabia by themselves could not
deter a Soviet attack or a
Syrian one for that matter.
But combined with Syria, Iraq
and other Arab nations, Jordan
with its proximity to Israeli
population centers, and Saudi
Arabia with its huge numbers of
advanced weapons, pose a clear
danger to Israel's security.
How these proposed sales fit
into any revival of the ill-con-
ceived Reagan Plan, or levels of
future economic aid to Israel, also
are causes for concern. Given the
President's propensity to
delegate responsibility, we have
to add to this equation the fact
that on Middle East policies

7 Terrorists Killed
terrorists were killed and three
Israel Defense Force soldiers
were wounded in two separate
incidents in south Lebanon
around midnight last Thursday.
The three soldiers were
wounded in a clash with three
terrorists who were trying to
cross the Awali River. The Is-
raelis opened fire and killed two
of the terrorists. The third
terrorist threw a grenade at the
IDF patrol, which exploded and
wounded two soldiers. In chasing
the third terrorist, the other IDF
soldier slipped on the steep rocky
hillside and was injured. Other
IDF soldiers in the patrol chased
the terrorist and killed him.
At about the same time,
another IDF patrol in the
Baroukh mountain area clashed
with another terrorist group.
In the meantime, Israel's
friends should be thankful that
the new Congress will remain an
important influence in many of
the decisions that will be made.
For the past 20 years, it has been
the Congress that has consis-
tently given greater balance and
rationality to our Middle East
policies. The first major test it
will face might unfortunately be
over these new arms sales.
