Rabin Says
Israel Had Cluster Bombs
Of Its Own Since '81
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin and other officials
maintained last Thursday
that Israel dsigned and
manufactured its own
cluster bombs as long ago as
1981, and therefore allega-
tions that it stole American
technology for the purpose
are patently false.
Moreover, the Israelis say,
their cluster bombs were of-
fered for sale in the U.S.
and elsewhere.
Rabin said on a television inter-
view that Israel developed the
weapon for its artillery. It was be-
ing test fired in 1982 and quan-
tities were in stock by 1984. He
said there was no resemblance
between the Israeli and American
cluster bombs.
angrily to reports in the American
media last week that the State-
owned Israel Military Industries
conspired with three private
American companies to obtain
cluster bomb technology in viola-
tion of U.S. law. The U.S. banned
the export of cluster bombs to
Israel in 1982 after reports that
Israel used the deadly anti-
personnel weapon in its invasion
of Lebanon.
Two Iowa-based companies and
one in Pennsylvania are under in-
vestigation by the Justice Depart-
ment and the U.S. Customs Ser-
vice on suspicion that they acted
in collusion with Israeli weapons
procurement agents to evade the
Arms Export Control Act. The
law limits military items that can
be exported from the U.S. without
an export license.

Two IDF Dead, 9 Wounded
In Fierce Battle With Terrorists
Two Israeli soldiers were
killed, and nine were
wounded in a fierce gun bat-
tle with terrorist infiltrators
who landed by sea in the
south Lebanon security
zone early last Thursday
morning. Four terrorists
were killed.
The dead Israeli soldiers were
identified as Sgt. Maj. Mansour
Rakhel of the El Hed Bedouin
tribe in Galilee and Sgt. Guy Ben-
dov of Ramat Efal. The
Damascus-based Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine,
headed by George Habash, took
responsibility for the sea-borne at-
tack. Their announcement in
Damascus said they were joined
by the Syrian Nationalist Social
Party, a Syrian-backed Lebanese
militia which has carried out car
bombings in Lebanon.
the terrorists planned to attack
Nahariya, a coastal city north of
Haifa to take hostages.
An Israeli military spokesman
said a Dabour class Navy patrol
boat spotted a motor dinghy at sea
just north of the Israel-Lebanon
border at 2 a.m. local time and
opened fire on it. The terrorists
managed to get ashore in the
security zone, about a kilometer
north of the Rosh Hanikra border
checkpoint and took refuge behind
An Israel Defense Force infan-
try patrol engaged them in a
three-hour grenade and fire-fight.
One of the Israeli soldiers was kill-
ed instantly, and the other died in
a hospital. The wounded were
The bodies of the four slain ter-
rorists yielded large quantities of
weapons and equipment, the
military spokesman said.
Shamir used the incident to stress
that Israel must direct all of its ef-
forts against the enemy, "not in
the quarrel directed against those
who fight terrorism." Shamir, ad-
dressing the Yeshiva University
convention in Jerusalem, was
referring to the bitter controversy
gripping Israel over the Shin Bet
There is already a field of 11
candidates vying for four
available seats out of the seven
total with the stiffest competi-
tion occurring in the South Coun-
ty area of District 6. In that
district there are five candidates
seeking the seat held for the past
12 years by Bob Ho well.

p.m. in the auditorium of the
Baer Jewish Campus on Spanish

Dr. Anderson says that he is
"gravely concerned ..." with the
"... tremendous challenges ..."
Lois Gracey expresses a con-
cern about the lack of parental in-
volvement in school legislation
and this prompted her to form a
parents' lobby group.

Carol Roberts Runs For
County Commission Seat
For County Commission can-
didate Carol Roberts, running for
public office is her way of giving
back to the community all that
Palm Beach County has given her
over the past 31 years.
Roberts said those 31 years in
Palm Beach County have meant
opportunity opportunity for
which she is appreciative.
All South County voters will be
involved in the September 4 deci-
sion which could enable Roberts to
fill Ken Spillias' vacant seat in
District 2.
As the immediate past mayor of
West Palm Beach, a twice-former
vice mayor, the founder of the
Jewish Community Day School
of Palm Beach County and
holder of numerous other commis-
sion, committee and board posi-
tions, Roberts has an extensive
background in building
The early 1960s found Roberts
heavily involved in Jewish Federa-
tion and the Palm Beach Chapter
of Hadassah. She was the first
president of the Women's Division
of Federation in Palm Beach
County. She was also a three-time
president of Hadassah and served
on Hadassah's regional board for
many years.
Roberts considers the founding
of the Jewish Community Day
School in 1973 to have been a
highlight in her life, "It gave me a
real sense of fulfillment."
Roberts, who is the mother of
six children, said five of them
were already too old for the Day
School then. However, she felt the
future of Judaism would be in-
sured through the in-depth Jewish
education provided by day
She reminisced, recalling con-
Carol Roberts
versations of eight years when the
topic was another Day School
for the South County. "It's a
great thrill to be in this building,"
she said during an interview at the
Federation offices. "I remember
when there were no Jews in Boca
As a former commissioner and
mayor of West Palm Beach,
Roberts' efforts were instrumen-
tal in the recognition of inner-city
housing problems and finding
solutions for them. Under her
leadership too, a community
redevelopment agency in West
Palm Beach was created. She also
spearheaded a city center plan
and zoning code to insure manag-
ed growth. And, since public
welfare and safety are priorities
for Roberts, she increased the
police department by 21
employees during her term.
Roberts is a native Floridian,
born and raised in Dade County.
She had been married to Hyman
Roberts, a West Palm Beach
physician, for the past 33 years.
Of the Roberts' sue children, five
sons and a daughter, one is mar-
ried and the youngest is a
sophomore in college.
"I was always active,"
Roberts said. She raised a
family and simultaneously attend-
ed college. In addition, she
became involved in organizational
She took her law school exams
in 1975, but also ran for city coun-
cil that year and won.
She looks to the future with con-
fidence. "I think the experience
I've had in government for the
past 11 years will allow me to in-
telligently and knowledgeably
represent the people of Palm
Beach County."
Arab Papers

Mahmoud Khatib, who edits Al-
Mithak, was notified by Jerusalem
District Commissioner Rafael
Levy last week that the Interior
Ministry is considering closing the
newspaper because it was "guid-

Similar notification was sent to an
associated publication, the Arabic

Extremists Target American Prisons
NEW YORK, N.Y. Organiz-
ed extremists of both the right
and the left have targeted
American prisons for recruitment
and agitation, posing potential
new dangers of criminal violence
and terrorism in this country, ac-
cording to a report issued by the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
The report, "Extremism
Targets The Prisons," was made
public at a session of the League's
National Commission meeting at
the Grand Hyatt Hotel here.
Syemour Reich, chairman of
ADL's national Civil Rights Com-
mittee, told the Jewish communi-
ty leaders gathered for the
meeting that some of the ex-
tremist organizations engaging in
prison activity have overseas links
with states and groups that ac-
tively promote terrorism, such as
Libya, Cuba, and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
The prison recruitment cam-
paign, the report said, is taking
place against a background of a
decline in organized extremism in
this country, both in numbers and
influence. But one of the reasons
for the decline, the League
pointed out, is that in recent years
members of the Ku Klux Klan, neo
Nazi Organizations, The Order,
the Black Liberation Army, the
Weather Underground and
similar groups have been sent to
prison for armed robbery, murder
and bombings "and consequently
many of their most zealous
leaders and members are today
behind bars."
Declaring that extremists are
increasingly turning their atten-
tion to prisoners, both among
their own comrades and other in-
mates, the report warned that
"with radical groups and revolu-
tionary strategies as their guides,
prisoners could easily become a
new source of further violence and
disorder in the prisons and, after
release, on the outside." The
record of some far-right and far-
left factions shows that members
originally recruited in the prisons
"are among their most violent
Moreover, the report went on,
extremists are finding a "ready
constituency" in prisons in the
form of violence-prone gangs
white, black and Hispanic. Among
the more than 100 prison gangs
cited by a U.S. Department of
Justice study last year are the
Black Guerrilla Family, described
as "both political and racial," and
the Aryan Brotherhood which is
"white supremacist."
Extremist groups have targeted
these gangs for propaganda and
recruitment purposes with vary-
ing degrees of success, the report
said. For example, the Aryan Na-
tions, an Idaho-based, far-right,
anti-Semitic group, has had some
success in linking up with the
Aryan Brotherhood gang, which
is reported to have members in
federal and state prisons in
Arizona, Arkansas, California,
Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio and
A powerful incentive for prison
gang members to agree to outside
affiliations, according to the
League, is provided by "chur-
ches" created by some extremist
groups to enable prisoner-
members to claim privileges en-
joyed by inmates who belong to
religious denominations.
The report cites a Chicago gang
known as El-Rukn, which is one of
the largest and most violent black
crime syndicates in the country,
as having sought recognition as a
religious organization so it could
hold "worship services" in Illinois
Prison officials, refused,
however, maintaining that El-
Rukn's "Moorish Science Tem-
ple" is a front organization for the
violent prison gang. (A Federal
District Court recently upheld the
ruling declaring that El-Rukn is a
"street gang and a threat to in-
stitutional security.")
Black Muslim leader Louis Far-
rakhan, according to the ADL
report, has established close
working relations with the El-
Rukn organization, some of whose
members have been featured at
his rallies. Farrakhan has
predicted that urban street gangs
will play a "very important role"
in a futrue race war in the United
Some prisoners are members of
the Aryan Nations' "Church of
Jesus Christ Christian," which
espouses a pseudo-theological
system of beliefs in which
"Aryans" are the "True Israel,"
Jews are the "seed of Satan" and
colored peoples are sub-human.
The beliefs are the doctrine of the
extremist movement known as
The League said that prison
members of this "church" have
demanded the right to receive
Identity literature, conduct its
"services" and receive visits from
its "pastors." Correction depart-
ment authorities in several states
have refused to accede to these
demands, citing the possible
danger of violence and disorder as
a result of fostering racism in
An appendix to the ADL report
summarized six court cases in
Arkansas, Missouri, Idaho, Illinois
and North Carolina in which in-
mate adherents of extremist
groups claimed that their First
Amendment rights of free speech
and religious practice had been
violated. The claims were overrul-
ed in four cases; there have been
no final decisions on the two other
On the far left, the ADL report
said, a variety of groups are at-
tempting to exert ideological in-
fluence upon, and to recruit,
prisoners. They range from Marx-
ist political parties to interrelated,
pro-terrorist organizations that
function partly as support net-
works for their own members and
for adherents who are
The report cited the Committee
to Fight Repression, a New York-
based organization which pro-
motes the views of a range of
violent leftist organizations and
publishes news of members who
have been indicted for criminal
acts or who are currently serving
prison terms. Among the groups
supported by the Committee to
Fight Repression is the United
Freedom Front, whose members
were recently indicted on charges
of racketeering, based on a series
of revolutionary terrorist and
criminal acts.
Other left-wing extremist
groups which seek to propagan-
dize and recruit prisoners include
the African People's Socialist Par-
ty, the New Afrikan Peoples
Organization, the Black Guerrilla
Family and the Revolutionary
Communist Party.
These groups view prisoners as
victims of the "oppressor"
government of the United States.
Imprisoned members of the Black
Liberation Army, the Puerto
Rican FALN and other left-wing
groups view themselves as "na-
tional armies" and, during their
prison terms, as "POWs."
Leaders of the two most active
"prison ministries" of the far
right Robert Miles of the
"Mountain Church" in Michigan
and Richard Butler of the Aryan
Nations organization also look
upon prisoners who share their
views as "POWs" in a continuing
"war" between their movements
and all levels of the American
government, which they label
"ZOG" ("Zionist Occupation
Miles claims to correspond with
1,800 prisoners in state and
federal institutions to propagate
his racist views. An ex-convict and
former Klan Grand Dragon who
has been described as the
"spiritual leader" of the hate
movement in America, Miles hosts
weekend gatherings at his
Michigan farm where hate group
leaders present diatribes against
Jews, other minorities and the
federal government.
Other far-right organizations
which have engaged in
"outreach" activities to prisoners,
according to the League, are the
Ku Klux Klan, the Euro-American
Alliance and several neo-Nazi and
"Identity" groups. These groups
publish letters from inmates and
encourage readers to correspond
with other prisoners who are
referred to as "heroes of their
The League said the report,
prepared by the Fact Finding
Department of the agency's Civil
Rights Division, was designed to
provide information to govern-
ment officials, legislators and
community leaders "on a poten-
tial danger which, because it
thrives in an insulated sector of
society, has not been highly

Morris J. Amitay Comments
Achille Lauro Trial
Last December when Customs
agents showed up at a warehouse
in upstate New York to in-
vestigate the possible illegal ac-
quisition by Israel of technology
for tank cannon barrels. NBC
camera crews came along on the
search hardly a coincidence.
More recently, the Justice Depart-
ment's investigation of a possible
plan for the illegal export of equip-
ment used to manufacture cluster
bombs was disclosed to the press
before Israel was notified. Unfor-
tunately, when the media becomes
heavily involved in publicizing an
investigation, a conclusion that
Israel is blameless will not
diminish the damage already
done. "Hie final outcome is never
given the prominent coverage
which is given to the original
Washingtonians who are
regularly involved with obtaining
export licenses are perplexed and
even bemused by the latest charge
of Israel trying to "steal" U.S.
technology. Procedures dictate
that it is the responsibility of the
American seller, not the Israeli
buyer, to obtain the necessary
U.S. Government export license.
It is then up to the Commerce.
State, and Defense Departments
to determine whether or not the
license application involves sen-
sitive technology.
Often a license applicant doesn't
know if the technology involved is
considered "sensitive." (The only
way to find out is by actually ap-
plying.) In Israel's case, it seems
that the old adage "it never hurts
to ask" doesn't apply what
should be asked, however, is why
the sudden prominence to
relatively piddling infractions?
Packwood's Chances
For some time now it looked as
though Senator Bob Packwood.
one of Israel's staunchest sup
porters in Congress, was a sure
bet for re-election this November.
Now his prospects are not as cer-
tain, and friends of Israel in
Washington are watching the race
Opposed by an extreme right-
wing, anti-abortion minister, in
the Republican primary,
Packwood was able to muster only
57 percent of the vote. At the
same time. Oregon Democrats
selected Representative Jim
Weaver to challenge Packwood.
Weaver, a "populist" candidate,
has tried on several occasions to
raise Packwood's consistent sup-
port of foreign aid as a campaign
issue. Weaver, who has a very
mediocre record on Israel-related
issues, votes against foreign aid
"it's obnoxious," he said on one
occasion, "to watch Packwood ap-
pease those who want more of our
money sent overseas."
Weaver is also trying to make
campaign contributions, namely
Packwood's, an issue mainly
because Weaver has raised little
money, and Packwood, Chairman
of the Senate Finance Committee,
has been able to raise a lot. The
issue of campaign finances,
however, may work against
Weaver according to The New
York Times, he is under investiga-
tion by the House Ethics Commit-
tee. It seems that Weaver borrow-
ed more than $80,000 over a three
year period from his congressional
campaign funds, lost it all in com-
modity futures, and then wrote
off the losses agaist a loan he
made to his campaign 10 years
Packwood. who is seeking his
fourth term, has always had close
races in the past. In this one he is
the number-one target of the
"right to lifers."
Packwood's pre-eminent leader-
ship on pro-Israel initiatives over
the years is matched only by his
detailed knowledge of Israel's pre-
state history. This knowledge of
an important segment of Jewish
history, is unusual, as Packwood's
contact with Jews was extremely-
limited until he left Oregon to ac-
cept a prestigious scholarship at
New York University Law School.
Since then, he has done much to
earn the admiration of Israel's
supporters around the country.
Catholic Prelate Urges Reagan
To Veto U.S. Embassy Move
NEW YORK (JTA) President Reagan has been
urged by the head of the National Conference of Catholic
Bishops to veto legislation that would force the United
States Embassy in Israel to be moved from Tel Aviv to
BISHOP JAMES MALONE wrote in a letter last
week to Reagan that "We believe such a unilateral move
would fail to address the special significance Jerusalem
holds for Moslems, Jew? and Christians, and it would pre-
sent yet another obstacle (for) Middle East peace."

Odd things happened in the trial of the Achille
Lauro pirates before the case went to a jury in
Genoa. Italy three weeks ago. A defense lawyer
claimed that the Palestinian Arab terrorist accus-
ed of killing the wheelchair-bound American
passenger Leon Klinghoffer was "not a monster,
but a fighter." The defense attorney argued that
Klinghoffer was not a murder victim but a casualty
in the "Palestinian struggle for a homeland."
This is a blantant invocation of the cliche that
"one person's terrorist is another person's
freedom fighter." If terrorists are freedom
fighters, then civilians are soldiers and innocent
bystanders are legitimate targets. Of course, those
who accept this Orwellian language surrender to
terrorists, allowing them to redefine reality. It
then becomes morally impossible to oppose ter-
rorist killings.
Stranger still was the effort by prosecutors to
portray the Achille Lauro affair as part of an inter-
nal PLO power struggle. According to this theory,
mastermind Mohammed Abbas sought to increase
the prestige of his splinter of the Palestine Libera-
tion Front, one of the factions which make up the
PLO, at the expense of the larger organization and
Chairman Yasir Arafat. Abbas supposedly meant
to discredit Arafat, who had drifted toward
"moderation" and diplomacy and away from
"armed struggle."
But just before the jury got the case, a top of-
ficial in SISDE, the Italian intelligence agency,
issued a report suggesting that Abbas' group was
too small, too primitive, to have planned and car-
ried out the hijacking by itself. According to the
New York Times, the report pointed to the involve-
ment of governments unnamed with a
The Paul Greenberg Column
sophisticated plan aimed at reducing U.S. and
Western European influence in the Middle East.
"From this angle," the report went on, "the
Achille Lauro operation assumes a completely dif-
ferent and more threatening aspect."
SISDE also asserted that advancing Palestinian
Arab nationalism no longer is the main goal of
groups like Abbas' PLF and Abu Nidal. Instead,
they have become tools of Syria and Libya in in-
trigues against other Arab states and against
Israel and Western states involved in the Middle
Questions about the purported split between Ab-
bas and Arafat remain. Arafat, himself, named
Abbas to the PLO's inner circle of executive com-
mittee members and Abbas remained on the com-
mittee after the hijack attempt. One of the four
defendants in the courtroom ten others, in-
cluding Abbas, were being tried in absentia, an
eleventh will be tried later ended his final state-
ment with a shout of "Long live Arafat!"
Whether or not Abbas and Arafat were at odds
over the Achille Lauro piracy is irrelevant. Any
disagreements concerned tactics, not strategy.
Arafat's involvement in the murders of such
combatants as school children and bus riders,
airplane passengers, Olympic athletes and
diplomats Israeli, American and others ex-
tends back 25 years. "Palestinian rights," which
supposedly justify all the killing, slip further from
reach each time Arafat, Abbas or their colleagues
send deluded young men and women on a new ter-
rorist outrage. This is the real verdict of the
Achille Lauro.

What Is Secular Humanism?
Friday. July 25,1986
18 TAMUZ 5746
Number 25
Whatever Secular Humanism
is, and nobody seems to know ex-
actly, it's got to be bad, bad, bad.
Look at all the folks agin it:
Congress has outlawed federal
aid for Secular Humanism, though
without bothering to define it.
Jerry Falwell. this decade's Bil-
ly Sunday and Father Coughlin
rolled into one, says Secular
Humanism "advocates abortion
on demand, recognition of
homosexuals, legalizing prostitu-
tion and gambling, and free use of
drugs among other things.
Jimmy Swaggart. who has the
best line of gab since Garner Ted
Armstrong used to wow 'em on
late-night radio out of Del Rio,
Texas, says Secular Humanists
"are man-centered and believe in
evolution and total reading
Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah
wrote the section of the education
bill outlawing aid for Secular
Humanism but he didn't quite say
what it was he was outlawing. The
other sponsor of the bill in the
United States Senate was New
York's Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
who usually has more answers
than there are questions. But on
this occasion he was stumped. "I
have no idea what secular
humanism is." he told the New
York Times. "No one does." Un-
fortunately, card-carrying Secular
Humanists haven't met in conven-
tion lately to lay out just what it is
that they believe, though the
Revs. Falwell and Swaggart seem
ready to do it for them, whoever
Them may be.
A -Catch-Air
All this murk should make it
clear that Secular Humanism is to
the Eighties roughly what Godless
Communism was to Joe McCarthy
in the Fifties a handy catch-all
for everything unsettling in the
world, from aggression abroad to
traffic jams at home.
What, after all, cannot be blam-
ed on so amorphous a menace?
Look at the list that, between
them, these two Revs have come
up with, all leading up to Total
Reading Freedom. Then there's
that most dreaded and useful
manace of all because it's open-
ended: Among Other Things. This
Paul Greenberg
category leaves room for the in-
come tax, cankerworms. cheating
at craps and the heartbreak of
psoriasis. To judge by its critics'
diverse descriptions, which resem-
ble the report of that well-known
committee of blind men describing
an elephant. Secular Humanism
isn't so much a philosophy as the
root of all evil. The love of money
seems to be losing that distinction
rapidly in this Age of the Yuppie.
Secular Humanism may be
murky but it's got something that
a lot of folks clearly love to hate.
Some say it is now the unofficial
American religion being foisted
on the schools and the rest of
American society. Funny:
You don't run into
many burn-again
Secular Humanists
out to convert the
world or even the
nearest schoolhouse.
Which leads one to
suspect that Secular
Humanism exists
mainly in the minds
of those decrying it.
Unofficial Religion
Anyway, this country already
has an unofficial religion. It
doesn't have as ominous a name,
or perhaps any name at all. but its
creed is easy to spot almost
anywhere in American society. Its
test of faith is wordly success, a
doctrine related to the general
message often heard from the
electronic pulpit that religion
will make you happy, rich, and
photogenic. Its patron saints are
Santa Claus, Uncle Sam, and St.
Christopher in no particular
order. It considers almost all
religions equally true or maybe
equally useful, since it doesn't
seem to recognize any great dif-
ference between those qualifies.
This unofficial faith is the final
stage of the Social Gospel in which
religion is valued and justified as a
social good, a means rather than
an end. Its members are fond of
saying that prayer sessions in the
schools would improve students'
conduct and grades, it being
understood that only such results
would justify prayer. This faith is
nothing if not pragmatic: its holy
grail is the bottom line.
This very American church is
tolerant to a fault, that is, it
doesn't care what religion you
belong to so long as it's one of the
Big Three. It doesn't take any
faith, except atheism, seriously
enough to oppose it. It mixes
church and state, the cross and
the flag, good citizenship and
church membership in a loose,
comfortable way. like the layered

He didn't. They are for invoca-
tions and benefictions, for giving

but they seem to have no discerni-
ble faitn beyond the constant pro-
clamation of it. Sound familiar?

fluence can be seen everywhere in
respectable, 20th Century
America if one only looks.

Buckley 'Dissociates' Self from
Sobran 's 'Perceived' Anti-Semitism
William F. Buckley, Jr.,
the noted conservative
writer and editor, has plain-
ly had it with columnist
Joseph Sobran. Sobran, syn-
dicated in 68 newspapers
nationwide, has written
several opinion pieces that
are viciously anti-Israel and,
in my opinion, clearly anti-
Buckley, who runs Sobran's col-
umns in his National Review, does
not believe that Sobran is an anti-
Semite. "Those who know Joe
Sobran," he writes, "know not on-
ly that he does not harbor ethnic
prejudices but that he regards
such prejudice as sinful, despised
by God, and therefore despised by
man" (National Review, July 4).
HOWEVER, he adds, "any per-
son who, given the knowledge of
reigning protocols, read and
agonized over the half-dozen col-
umns by Sobran might reasonably
conclude that those columns were
written by a writer inclined to
Accordingly, Buckley writes, "I
here dissociate myself and my col-
leagues" from Sobran's offending
columns. He adds the hope that
Sobran will stop writing columns
which exacerbate the relationship
between Jews and political
Buckley deserves credit for tak-
ing a firm line against a colleague
and ideological ally. But, as he
points out, the National Review
has a history of fighting anti-
Semitism. Writes Buckley: "Na-
tional Review has, since its incep-
tion, declined association with
anti-Semites, and indeed on one
occasion went a generic step fur-
ther. When it became clear, in
1957, that the direction which the
American Mercury (a now-defunct
right-wing magazine) was headed
was anti-Semitic, I ruled, with the
enthusiastic approval of my col-
leagues that no writer appearing
on The Mercury's masthead, not-
withstanding his own innocence
on the subject, could also appear
on National Review's."
HAVING demonstrated his
credentials on the matter,
Buckley notes that not all
criticism of Israel or of Jews is
anti-Semitic. "It is a far cry from
Auschwitz to the suggestion (Joe
Sobran's) that the Israelis are fre-
quently duplicitous" in their
behavior toward America, he
But "in respect of American
Jews, the sensitivity is of an ex-
tremely high order, and for the
best of reasons. The toniest liberal
universities in America would not,
until about the time Joe Sobran
was born, give tenure to Jewish
professors. To elect a Jewish stu-
dent to most social fraternities
was quite simply unthinkable a
generation ago. The designation
of Jews as mortal enemies of
civilization by the same European
power that had given us Bach and
Goethe, Kant and Einstein
reminded the Jews (those Jews
who survived) that no society,
however civilized its pedigree, can
complacently be trusted to desist
from the ferocious human activi-
ty: genocide."
And that is why Buckley
believes that "the structure of
prevailing taboos respecting
Israel and the Jews is welcome.
The age calls for hypersensitivity
to anti-Semitism, over against a
lackadaisical return to the blase
conventions of the pre-war
generation" which led to
genocide. He adds that "needless
to say, this is hardly to dignify the
preposterous charges of anti-
Semitism occasionally leveled ig-
norantly and sometimes
maliciously at anyone who takes a
position contrary to that of
organized Jewish opinion,
whether in Israel or elsewhere."
BUCKLEY IS right on target.
No one is arguing that Israel or
Jews are or should be immune

of the California Republican
Senate primary were an-
nounced in early June. After
a hotly contested race,
Republican voters chose Ed

Zschau has been described as
one of the five most anti-Israel
members of the House of
Representatives (out of 435).
Cranston, on the other hand, has
been an effective leader in all pro-
Israel initiatives for almost two
decades. Because of this, the race
is certain to be one of the most
critical of the 34 Senate contests
this November.
IT ALSO promises to be one of
the closest, hardest fought, and
most expensive match-ups.
Zschau, a former high-tech
businessman, has already spent
millions to increase his name
As a member of the House
Foreign Affairs Committee and
its Near East Subcommittee,
Zschau has had more oppor-
tunities than most Members of
Congress to expound his views on
U.S. Middle East policies. But an
examination of the record clearly
shows that should Ed Zschau be
elected to the U.S. Senate, an
outspoken foe of Israel would
replace an outspoken friend.
Zschau has compiled a record of
votes, statements, and positions
on Middle East policy which only
the National Association of Arab
Americans (NAAA), the pro-PLO
lobby, and its ilk could admire.
The NAAA'8 political action com-
mittee, in fact, has already made a
significant contribution to the
Zschau campaign.

Urbanizing the Bedouin Brings to End
Romantic Tradition of the Nomad
Bedouin woman, in traditional garb, and child.
When I entered the
Negev Bedouin settlement
of Tel Sheva, situated ap-
proximately six kilometers
east of Beersheba, I was
caught a bit off guard. I
naturally hadn't envisioned
a bubbling oasis dotted with
date trees or saber-toting
sheikhs astride Arabian
mounts, but I must admit I
did expect a few camels.
Instead, I was greeted with
what appeared to be a typical
Arab village stone houses,
markets, garages, a school and
the inevitable free-roaming
livestock. As we progressed fur-
ther into the settlement, my
guide, Dr. Joseph Ginat, Minister-
without-Portfolio Ezer Weizman's
adviser on Arab affairs, explained
that whereas half a century ago
Bedouin were free to migrate
from Jordan in the east to the
Central Sinai in the south to the
Mediterranean in the west,
they've recently been "sedentariz-
ed" by the Israeli government
within a reservation area stret-
ching roughly from Beersheba to
the Judean Desert.
WHEREAS Bedouin once lived
in black goat hair tents, many now
dwell in permanent townships, in
beautiful homes complete with
plumbing, gas and electricity. And
whereas pastoralism at one time
provided the main source of
nomadic income, many Bedouin
now work in farming and many as
salaried workers in the towns.
Sedentarization of the Bedouin
is a modern Middle East
phenomenon. "No government in
the area can tolerate the migra-
tion of Bedouin any longer," says
Ginat. Not only Israel, but Jordan,
Egypt. Syria and Saudi Arabia
are sedentarizing their Bedouin,
he continues, adding that due to
security reasons it is unfeasible to
allow the Bedouin to persist in
their traditional migration pat-
terns, which entail the crossing of
neighbors' borders.
Some 40 percent of the Negev's
Bedouin today reside in the

Sentence to Lebanese Terrorist
PARIS (JTA) Georges
Ibrahim Abdullah, a Lebanese
Christian suspected of having
masterminded the murders of an
Israeli diplomat and an American
military attache here four years
ago, was sentenced to four years
imprisonment by a Lyon criminal
court Thursday (July 10).
Abdullah was tried for illegal
possession of firearms and posses-
sion of forged passports, relative-
ly minor charges, and there is a
possibility that he may be released
and expelled from France. He has
been in custody since October,
1982, which is applicable to his
sentence. French law requires a
prisoner to serve two-thirds of a
sentence before being eligible for
early release.
Abdullah has been in jail less
than half the time. But the Justice
Ministry could decide to free him
now. His attorney, Jacques
Verges, who requested immediate
release for time served, has hinted
at a possible "arrangement" that
would involve the release of two
French hostages, Marcel Fon-
taines an Marcel Carton, who
have been held by terrorists in

Jewish Network
On Tuesday night, July 8, PROJENET, the Professional Jewish
Business Network held its monthly business meeting at the Holi-
day Inn at Boca Raton.
This month's guest speaker was Dee Davidson of Dee Davidson
and Associates. The evening's topic was "Promoting Your
Business" and Ms. Davidson geared her lecture to the most suc-
cessful forms of paid and non-paid advertising. She discussed
direct mail and print advertising as well as those vital, cost free
aspects of promoting a professional's practice which are simple to
do, yet have a tremendous effect on one's business. The lecture
and questions and answer period were well received by the group.
PROJENET meets the second Tuesday of each month, PRO-
JENET members include area physicians, business owners,
stockbrokers, insurance salesmen, builders and other professional
and business people. The group's purpose is to provide an oppor-
tunity for area professionals to "network" with other successful
Jewish businesspeople throughout the county. Current members
live anywhere from Miami to West Palm Beach.
Next month's PROJENET event will be a Tennis Tournament
and Swim Party to be held at Boca Grove on Tuesday, August 12
at 7 p.m. The cost is $20 per person. Members, their guests and
prospective applicants are invited to attend.

Urbanizing the Bedouin Nomads

townships of Tel-Sheva, Rahat,
Kuseifa and Arour. The
townships, dubbed by critics as
"dormitories for an industrial
labor force," were initiated in
1968 "as a kind of solution for the
Bedouin," explains Dr. Itzhak
Baily, former senior lecturer at
Tel Aviv University and Bedouin
poetry expert.
SINCE THE advent of the
State of Israel, the Negev has ac-
quired uses other than
pastoralism: crops have been
planted and cultivated, urban set-
tlements established and in-
dustrial and military installations
built. "Since they (the Bedouin)
could no longer freely move about
the land, the Israeli government
decided to set up townships,"
adds Baily.
As for the remaining 60 per-
cent, those who sporadically squat
in temporary shelters inside and
outside the reserve area, they too
will become urbanized once their
land claims are settled, says
This is easier said than done,
however, for land claims have pro-
ven the greatest point of conten-
tion between the Bedouin and the
Israeli government since the in-
ception of the State. The dilemma
dates back to the time when the
Turks ruled over Palestine. For
various reasons, ranging from the
Bedouin's traditional adherence
to oral law to the desire to avoid
paying taxes, they neglected to
register ownership of property as
stipulated by the Turkish "Tabu"
law of 1858. Since the Israeli
government recognizes these
documents as sole evidence of
ownership, the Bedouin "tenure
right" claim to some 4.2 million
dunams of land have been
repeatedly rejected in Israeli
Hence, throughout the last 15
years, despite the appointment of
numerous committees designed to
suggest possible solutions and
alternative living arrangements
for the Bedouin, land expropria-
tion and subsequent urbanization
has forged ahead.
"TO MOST Bedouin, migration
is a thing of the past to some
because they've had no choice, to
others because they prefer to be
settled," says Baily. Noting that
the government has attempted, at
least to a certain degree, to com-
pensate displaced Bedouin clans
for expropriated land, he adds,
"Urbanization does have its
positive points. Living conditions
have improved, and Bedouin now
have running water, electricity,
medical facilities and schools."
Fifteen years ago, only half of
the children in the Bedouin sector
attended school. Today, 98 per-
cent receive schooling, with most
completing eight years of educa-
tion. According to Ginat, "Mpre
and more men are attending
university, and the Negev has
already produced a few engineers
and physicians." Most Bedouin
girls, however, rarely make it to
the secondary high school level,
and although school attendance is
mandatory under Israeli law, "in
this particular case the govern-
ment tends to look the other
way," admits Ginat.
I personally experienced a taste
of the Bedouin's strict adherence
to the traditional role of women in
nomadic society before entering
the home of Sheikh Sliman el-
Afinch. After passing through a
reception line of tribal members,
half of whom refused to shake my
hand or murmur greetings, I spied
a black goat tent situated behind
the house. "What's that?" I in-
quired. "Oh, that's the women's
tent," replied Ginat.
IN A SENSE, the place of
women within the tribal in-
frastructure is indicative of other
traditional beliefs and customs to
which the Bedouin stubbornly cl-
ing. A further example is the im-
portance placed upon hospitality,
something greatly in evidence
within the home of el-Afinch.
Upon being seated on brightly-
colored floor cushions, we were
treated to steaming glasses of
mint tea and entertained by
fascinating accounts of Bedouin
One such account, narrated per-
sonally by el-Afinch, involved the
Bish'a ceremony, the Bedouin's
own version of the polygraph test.
According to Bedouin tradition, if
a tribal member is accused of a
crime, and there is no overriding
proof of guilt or innocence, he is
given the opportunity to prove the
latter by traveling to the "keeper
of the flame," situated in two loca-
tions in the Arab world
Ismailia, Egypt and along the
Jordanian-Saudi border.
Once there, the ceremony con-
sists of the accused licking a red-
hot pan three times. If the man is
innocent his tongue doesn't burn.
El-Afinch recently traveled to the
keeper of the flame to prove his
innocence and end a blood feud.
He licked the pan three times and
came out unscathed. The verdict
was final, and the dispute ended.
But perhaps the most closely
guarded tradition of the Negev
Bedouin is that of collective
responsibility. "If you understand
the social structure of collective
responsibility, you understand the
Bedouin," says Ginat. The collec-
tive responsibility unit is in
essence a social institution. In
Bedouin ideology, men who can
trace common descent to an
ancestor five generations remov-
ed can be part of this "co-liable
THE CENTRAL task of the
group, as the word "co-liable"
suggests, is to uphold mutual
responsibility in matters of blood,
either when a member or
members have shed blood, or
when one of the members has
been killed or wounded. In other
words, to be prepared to kill or be
killed for another member. As the
co-liable group's ultimate respon-
sibility has been set so high, it
becomes an all-encompassing
association that can be called upon
to serve a wide variety of
Despite this cohesive unit,
however, sedenterization is in-
creasingly robbing the Bedouin of
their cultural identity. But
perhaps there is some compensa-
tion in noting that in return they
are gaining a vastly improved
standard of living.

JERUSALEM The terrorist
organizations have aspired, since
the 1970s, to utilize the com-
munications media as a "theater
of terror" by timing their attacks
in order to achieve maximum
news coverage, a researcher said
recently at the Third Canada-
Israel Conference, held at the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The conference was organized
by the University's Program of
Canadian Studies, cosponsored by
the Government of Canada and
Ralph and Roz Halbert of Toron-
to, and the University's Smart
Family Foundation Communica-
tions Institute, and was based on
the theme, "Cultural Identities
and Global Communications."
Some 70 academics and com-
munications experts from Canada
and Israel participated in the
three-day event.
In presenting his research on
terror and the use of media,
Gabriel Weimann of the Universi-
ty of Haifa gave as examples of
such media-oriented acts the
murder of Israeli athletes at the
Munich Olympics in 1972 and the
hijacking of a Canadian plane by
Croation nationalists. "Terror is
directed more toward television
and radio than it is to the victims,
who serve only as symbols," said
Weimann. He emphasized that the
terrorist acts are intended mainly
to attract the attention of the
populations of Western Europe
and North America, since the ter-
rorists attribute great importance
to Western public opinion.
Dov Shinar, of the Hebrew
University Communications In-
stitute, said that since in the West
Bank the inhabitants do not have
their own mass media, they find
other ways to obtain news and to
communicate with each other,
such as meetings of extended
families, development of volun-
tary organizations of a political
nature, and through the five
universities operating there.
Micha Yinon, chairman of the
Israel Broadcasting Authority,
speaking on "Democracy in Self-
Defense: the Media and Meir
Kahane," questioned whether the
Broadcasting Authority had erred
in invoking standing regulations
regarding emergency situations
and the defense of democracy in
denying coverage to MK Meir
Kahane. The issue is now before
the Supreme Court as the result of
an appeal by Kahane.
cumulative deficit of the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem stood at
27 million shekels (about $18
million) as of last Sept. 30, the
university's Board of Governors
was told at its 48th annual
meeting, held in Jerusalem last
In order to seek ways to cope
with this deficit, the board decided
to hold an emergency meeting in
approximately two months to
discuss the university's financial
situation. An independent com-
mittee was appointed by Board
Chairman Harvey Krueger, head-
ed by Tel Aviv, accountant Dan
Bavly, to study the financial con-
trol systems and reporting pro-
cedures of the university. The ad-
ministrative committee of the
board's executive committee also
was instructed to come up with
recommendations on how the
university can trim its budget
A strong resolution was adopted
by the board calling upon the
Israeli government to restore the
level of financial support it
formerly provided to the Universi-
ty and which in the past few years
has declined drastically. The
board also called on its Friends
Associations around the world to
make special efforts to raise funds
for support of the university and
to enable it to free itself from the
extremely serious financial situa-
tion in which it finds itself.
Prof. Amnon Pazy, rector of the
university, told the board that the
university was able to hire only 15
new academic staff members each
year, and that this was discourag-
ing for new academics and resear-
chers starting out in their careers.
He also told of a decrease of 30
percent in available funds for ac-
quiring books and periodicals.
Funds for research also are highly
restricted, the board was told.
Honorary Board Chairman
Robert Smith, standing in for
Board Chairman Krueger, who
was unable to attend, emphasized
that "a large endowment fund re-
mained the single best guarantee
for the university's future,"
recalling that a year ago the board
had undertaken to add $135
million to the endowment fund
within five years.

U.S.-Israel Ties Remain Strong
Friday, July 25, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 9
The strategic cooperation
relationship between the
United States and Israel has
been a notable success and
is likely to remain solid
despite current allegations
firmly denied that
Israel tried, illegally, to ob-
tain cluster bomb
technology in the U.S.
That was the consensus of
American and Israeli experts who
met at a conference here last
week sponsored by the
Washington Institute for Near
East Policy. The subject was
defense strategy in the Eastern
Mediterranean. A group of Israeli
military correspondents par-
ticipated in the discussion.
MUCH HITHERTO undisclos-
ed information emerged on the
workings of strategic cooperation
between the two countries.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
spoke at length of the benefits
that accrued to the U.S. from that
relationship in recent years.
Samuel Lewis, former U.S. Am-
bassador to Israel, revealed for
the first time publicly how
strategic cooperation almost
He also offered what he stress-
ed was "purely my hypothesis" of
what lay behind suspected
leakages to the media in the
cluster bomb case and earlier in-
stances of alleged Israeli practices
with regard to military technology
which appeared to overstep the
boundaries of good faith between
two allies.
The allegations that Israel con-
spired with three private
American companies to obtain
cluster bombs which the U.S. ban-
ned from export to Israel in 1982,
appeared in the American media
while the conference was under
way. Rabin admitted he was
perplexed by the allegations as he
was by "the fairy tale" last April
that Israel was smuggling U.S.
weapons to Iran.
Both stories broke against the
background of the Jonathan
Pollard spy case. "It is beyond my
understanding," Rabin said. "It
looks as though some people,
somewhere, try to find out of
nowhere stories which will under-
mine the (U.S.-Israel) relationship
and put pressure on American in-
dustries, threaten them not to
cooperate with Israel."
LEWIS, who last year ended an
eight-year tour of duty as Am-
bassador to Israel, said he was
also puzzled by the recent
charges. "Let me give you a
hypothesis it is purely my
hypothesis from living in the
States for the last year and here
for the eight years before that,"
he said.
He said the strategic relation-
ship had to be seen "in the context
of a steady rise in defense
assistance grants to Israel over
the last several years, to a very
large amount today, and a very
large proportion of our total
foreign aid and to the percep-
tion in some areas of the press and
in some of those who have always
been unsympathetic to Israel."
According to Lewis, Israel's
relationship with the Reagan Ad-
ministration has become so close
"that it amounts to a blank check
a blank check because it ad-
mires Israel and its leaders that
American political leaders in this
era have winked at or ignored a
lot of Israeli practices in the U.S.
related to technology and infor-
mation which with any other coun-
try would have led to
LEWIS ADDED, "Now that
perception, I would argue, is
rather widespread in the foreign
policy bureaucracies in
Washington, the State Depart-
ment, here and there in the Pen-
tagon, the CIA, Congressional
staffs, even some Congressmen.
At the same time, you have a
President and a Secretary of
State and even a Secretary of
Defense and other senior leaders
determinedly anxious to maintain
a very close relationship with
Israel, for our interests as well as
"And at the same time you have
in the law enforcement agencies
of the government Customs,
Justice, FBI as in any security
agencies a lot of open files,
suspicions which have been arous-
ed in years past about things that
go back as far as the famous
nuclear diversion issue in Penn-
sylvania and the Krytron case and
"And you know that law en-
forcement agencies follow their
noses. They smell something, they
get some evidence, whether it's
good or bad, they want to pursue
the case to the end .. Yet
because of the political closeness
and their sense that it is not
politically wise to be seen as
violating the general line of the
Administration, my guess is that a
number of files have just been left
open for quite a while .
suspect, is that the Pollard case
suddenly made it kosher for the
law enforcement agencies to come
out of the woodwork and begin
pursuing some of the cases that
they felt politically constrained
not to pursue before," Lewis said.
Pollard, a civilian analyst
employed by the U.S. Navy, con-
fessed to spying for Israel. Israel
has contended that his was a
rogue operation, an isolated case
without official sanction or
The "nuclear diversion" refer-
red to by Lewis was a case that
broke in 1968 when the CIA
suspected that Israeli agents stole
uranium for nuclear weapons
from a Pennsylvania plant.
Krytrons are switches that can be
used to trigger nuclear bombs. An
American exporter was indicted
in 1985 for sending 810 of them to
Israel. Israel said they were for
non-nuclear purposes.
Last December, Customs
agents raided several military
contractors' plants suspected of il-
legally shipping advanced combat

tank armor technology to Israel.
An investigation subsequently
found no misconduct on Israel's
part, but the raids had been leak-
ed to the press.
Rabin and other Israeli officials
have been angered by the leaks on
the cluster bomb case which were
carried by the media before Israel
was able to issue its denials.
LEWIS STATED that in his
opinion "there is clearly nobody at
high levels in this Administration
who wants to do in Israel or em-
barrass Israel because it is totally
contrary to the mind set and
policy set of President Reagan
and his immediate advisers." He
added, "I think there is some
damage inevitably. But I think it
is pretty transitory and will be
overtaken by the next Middle
East crisis."
Rabin engaged in his own
damage control by stating for the
record what the U.S. has gained
from its strategic cooperation
relationship with Israel.
"These days there is so much
talk about Israel's smuggling
technical know-how," he said. "I
can't but refer to the unique
Israeli contribution to the
American armed forces We are
the only ones who unfortunately
have combat experience of the
most advanced American
weaponry against the most ad-
vanced Russian weaponry. Where
else have you had contacts bet-
ween F-158 and F-16s against
MIG-238, MIG-218, Sukhoi-22s?
Where in the world have you
ever experienced, since your raid
on Libya, how to cope with
ground-to-air missiles Sam-2s,
Sam-3s, Sam-6s, Sam-8s, Sam-9s
Where else could the U.S. col-
lect the kind of information which
is related not only to electronic
beeps but to electronic beeps in
operation? Where else could the
U.S. collect encounters with the
Russian weaponry in the way it
could be collected through
cooperation with Israel ... We
have passed it on to the U.S. as
part of our partnership ..."
LEWIS SAID the first agree-
ment on strategic cooperation fail-
ed because then Premier
Menachem Begin and his Defense
Minister, Ariel Sharon, tried for
too mui-n.
"Up until this point everything
had gone very nicely. This is
where it went off the track,"
Lewis said. "The Defense
Minister described the scope of
strategic cooperation which ought
to be elaborated between our
countries in very grandiose, far-
reaching terms. He suggested
roles Israel might play for the
mutual benefit of the alliance
which sent cold shivers down the
backs of most of the people on the
American side and maybe
even some on the Israeli side."
Lewis said the result was that
Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger saw to it that the
agreement was a useless piece of

sistently voted against Israel on
najor issues. The fact is that
^schau has repeatedly sought to
indermine initiatives designed to
strengthen U.S.-Israel ties on
the House floor, in committee and

Most recently, Zschau was a key

striking contrast. From his key
bosition as a senior member of the
p>enate Foreign Relations Com-
littee and its Middle East Sub-
committee, and as the Senate
linority Whip, Cranston has
worked diligently to build bipar-
tisan support on issues of concern

Cranston exposed Iraqi efforts to

election been faced with such a
margin of difference in the Middle

meanwhile, reportedly summoned

Rabin affirmed the Defense

was obtained legally. "All we ask-
ed for, and we did so in the most
formal manner was industrial
equipment which, by the way, we
could also have obtained in

Nurses End Their Strike

days of a work stoppage which
msed great harm and distress to

Representatives of the 11,000

The nurses on Wednesday night
(July 9) had agreed to return to
work Thursday morning after
negotiations started with the
Histadrut and representatives of
the Health and Finance
Ministries, on hospital conditions
and ways to attract new nurses to
the profession.
But the government and
employers said they would only
begin negotiations on improving
hospital conditions, including the
addition of more nurses, but not
on the matter of increased wages,
after work had begun, and the
hospital wards were fully staffed.
Nurses' spokespersons said they
had won their fight for separate

mits. The development and pro-
duction of bomblets is Israeli .
Many countries have bomblets
like this. It's not an exclusive
American patent. So I am amazed
at all the noise that's being
made .. ." By "bomblets" Rabin
was referring to the cluster of
small bombs contained in a large
bomb casing which give the
weapon its name.
ACCORDING TO officials here,
production of Israel-made cluster
bombs was first disclosed in 1981
by Rafael, the Israel Weapons
Development Authority, at a
press conference. It was reported
later by the then Israel Military
Attache in Washington, Maj. Gen.
Menahem Meron, on a
Washington-based cable television
Israel calls its weapon the Tal
(Dew) cluster bomb and has
described it in promotional
literature and press kits as "an in-
genious application of classic
aerodynamic principles .. .
resulting in Rafael's development
of an improved and highly effec-
tive submunition dispersion
According to the description,
"It produces hundreds of explo-
sion centers in a large ground pat-
tern covering as much as 50,000
square meters. Its effective area
is up to 40 times greater than that
of a general purpose bomb."

Israel Bonds Announces
1986 Leadership Conference
Local Israel Bond leaders will
attend the Bonds Organization's
1986 National Leadership Con-
ference which will be hosted by
Baltimore's Jewish Community
from Sept. 10-14 at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in that city, it has
been announced by Howard Pitt-
man, Executive Chair.
The local participants will be
joining 300 Jewish leaders from
the U.S. and Canada at the four-
day conference.
Pittman reported that new
marketing strategies and cam-
paign techniques will be the main
focus of this year's Bonds leader-
ship meetings.
Major conference events will in-
clude training: workshops dealing
with the Bonds Organization's
various financial instruments; a
campaign report by the President
of Israel Bonds, Brig. Gen. (Res.)
Yehudah Halevy; addresses by
major Israeli and American
political personalities; and
meetings of the Women's and
New Leadership Divisions.
Special caucuses will also deal
with the synagogue Bonds cam-
paign, tourism to Israel and other
phases of the Bonds Organiza-
tion's multi-faceted program.
The annual Israel Bonds
Leadership Conference launches
its Fall effort in the United States
and Canada which is traditionally
the most productive phase of the
year's Bonds drive.
"Our goal this year," Pittman
said, "is to surpass the record
$505 million which the Bonds
Organization channeled into
Israel's economic development
last year."
He continued: "Israel has made
good progress in stabilizing its
economy during the past year. We
must now help the nation continue
its economic recovery by pro-
viding increased loan funds to ex-
pand investment in industry and
create new jobs."
Sharansky Critical Of Israel's
Policy Regarding Soviet Jewry
JERUSALEM (JTA) Natan Sharansky charged
here that the Israeli government is avoiding a comprehen-
sive public campaign on behalf of Jews in the Soviet Union.
His statement before a Knesset subcommittee on
Soviet Jewry was Sharansky's first criticism of Israel
policy since his arrival here last Feb. 11 after nearly nine
years in Soviet prisons and labor camps.
and dissident told the Knesset panel that Israel should ex-
ert heavier pressure on the U.S. to act for Soviet Jews "so
that at the next summit, the American press will write
more about the anti-Soviet demonstrations and less on the
dress of Mrs. Gorbachev."
