UN Chief Warns Against
Eventual War in Mideast
(JTA) UN Secretary
General Javier Perez de
Cuellar warned here that
without a breakthrough for
peace in the Middle East
"including the Palestine
Liberation Organization"
war can engulf the region
once again.
"The situation in the region con-
tinues to be highly volatile," de
Cuellar said in his annual report to
the General Assembly, issued last
Thursday (Nov. 13), on the situa-
tion in the Mideast. "There is a
grave danger that if the present
deadlock in the peace process is
allowed to persist, major
hostilities will break out again in
the area as has happened several
times in the past," the Secretary
General stated.

Unfortunately, as Mayor Koch
noted, the Japanese do not come
to the matter with clean hands.
They have violated the principle of
free trade in one area, their sup-
port of the Arab boycott of Israel
more openly than any other major
industrial nation.
In doing so, they subvert the
system of international trade that
benefits all nations and they put at

Bush Tells CJF
U.S., Israel in 'Long Alliance'
Vice President George Bush
declared here Saturday
night that the U.S. and
Israel "are united in a long
alliance dedicated to insur-
ing not a beginning but a
continuation, not the crea-
tion of the State, but its sur-
vival." The "sheer bottom
line consideration," he said,
is that the U.S. needs Israel
and Israel needs the U.S.
"This mutual dependence is
good, not bad," Bush stated.
Addressing the closing plenary
session of the 55th General
Assembly of the Council of Jewish
Federations, Bush told 3,000
Jewish communal leaders from
North America and abroad that
this reaffirmation of the mutual
bond needs to be repeated "as
long as Israel is surrounded by
those who could do her in."
moral responsibility to declare to
the world unambiguously and une-
quivocally: Israel is our friend and
ally," Bush said.
The Vice President was fre-
quently interrupted by applause
as he talked about U.S.-Israel
relations, the need "to be tough in
the continued war on terrorism"
and the ongoing effort of the U.S.
to press the Soviet Union about
the rights of Soviet Jews. He em-
phasized that American support
for Israel is unswerving.
As an example, he noted the
unremitting hostility against
Israel in the UN by those he term-
ed "racists and bullies." "You
would think that being the target
of such obvious hostility, Israel
would have been ejected from the
UN by now," Bush said. "But of
course, she hasn't, and the reason
reminds us of how important it is
for friends to make their friend-
ship and their intentions
"Israel is still in the U.S.," he
said in a slip of the tongue, which
was greeted by laughter, in-
cluding his own. "I mean the
UN," he said, "because America
has made it clear this Ad-
ministration has made it repeated-
ly, abundantly clear that if
Israel is thrown out of the UN,
America leaves too. If they're out,
we're out; if they get the boot, our
boots are made for walkin'."
and candor, he said that "over the
past quarter century or so,
America's passion to defend
Israel has sometimes seemed to
manifest itself in a kind of col-
dness or rejection of all things
Arab. And they have sensed this,
and this has not been helpful, and
it has not been kind."
Bush affirmed that the U.S. is
no enemy, to the moderate states.
"We are a friend of Egypt, where
President (Hosni) Mubarak and
his people, with great courage and
sense, made it clear that they
need to preserve the peace with
Israel. King Hussein of Jordan
continues his tough and lonely
search for a way to start negotia-
tions and this is helpful, and
deserving of our praise. And the
courage Shimon Peres showed
when he met with King Hassan of
Morocco is another cause for
In discussing terrorism, Bush
said that one element in the fight
against "this viciousness and
bloodlust" is to step up in-
telligence and analysis. He said
that America's intelligence
system "is the best ever. In the
past year alone, we were able to
stop 90 planned attacks against
U.S. citizens before they happen-
ed. But we can do better."
Vice President Bush
He did not give specific informa-
tion about the planned attacks,
and, unlike Israeli Foreign
Minister Peres, who address-
ed the GA Thursday night, did not
call for international cooperation
in confronting terrorism on a
global scale.
ON ANOTHER issue, the
separation of church and state,
which Bush referred to as "a
source of anxiety" to the Jewish
community and to others, he said:
"I would fiercely oppose the ob-
vious or subtle establishment of
any state religion. I would oppose
any merging of church and state. I
embrace, respect and support the
wall that separates them, and I
would never tear it down nor
allow it to erode."
But, he added, "the separation
of church and state does not, and
cannot, be allowed to apply a
hostility of the state toward
religion The church and the
state are neighbors." Bush said
that Americans must remember
not to judge each other "or to
speak disparagingly of each
other's belief. In a pluralistic
democracy, you've got to
remember to give each other a lit-
tle spiritual breathing room.
Religion isn't a problem in
America, but intolerance
sometimes is. And this is
something we all have to watch
out for."
On the issue of human rights,
Bush assured the assembled
Jewish leaders "that the U.S. has
been bringing up the problem of
Soviet Jewry with the Soviets in
Geneva" during the ongoing
talks. He also stressed that Presi-
dent Reagan "pressed the Soviets
on this cause" when he met with
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
in Iceland last month.
BUSH ADDED, "We will con-
tinue to press. The human rights
issue is now a permanent part of
the U.S.-Soviet agenda. They
don't like that a lot, but that's the
way it's going to be until they do
what's right."
The most dramatic portion of
the closing GA session was the ap-
pearance of Natan Sharansky on
satellite television from
Jerusalem. This first satellite
telecast from Israel was brought
through the auspices and services
of the World Zionist Organization
Education Department.
Sharansky, smiling and at ease,
issued an impassioned plea for
continuing efforts to pressure the
Soviet Union to allow Jews to im-
migrate to Israel. He warned the
audience not to be beguiled by the
release of a few prominent
refuseniks as signifying a more
liberal emigration policy. It was
tokenism, he explained.
HE POINTED out that Gor-
bachev was engaging in clever
public relations in dealing with the
West and this, therefore, made
Gorbachev even more dangerous
than his predecessors, Sharansky
said the changi' in theoutv
pearance of responsivene
USSR to human rights pres
by the U.S. was due to the Soviet
Union's need for more trade and
credits from the U.S.
"Realistically, the situation of
Soviet Jews in worse than ever.''
he said. "The number of Jews
allowed to emigrate today is the
lowest in 20 years. The number of
Prisoners of Zion in the camps and
the refuseniks in the cities is big-
ger than before. There are
400,000 Jews waiting to come to
Israel. That's why we must not be
deceived by the new image Gor-
bachev is presenting to the
The former refusenik also urged
that more American Jews visit the

with Jews there to obtain informa-
tion about the situation and let
them know that they are not alone

Burg Believes
Unity Gov't. Will Survive Tenure
Friday, November 21, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Without Breakthrough for Peace,
UN Chief Warns of Mideast War
Yosef Burg, the former
Israeli Minister of Religious
Affairs who retired last
month after serving in vir-
tually every government
since the State was founded,
believes the present Labor-
Likud unity coalition will
survive the final two years
of its tenure, despite
ideological differences bet-
ween the partners.
"I don't see any serious political
problems which will break up the
unity government," Burg said at a
press conference here. But the
77-year-old Burg, who can be
described as leader emeritus of
the National Religious Party, did
not come to New York to make
political prognostications.
HE IS HERE to rally support
for the religious Zionist move-
ment in the upcoming elections to
the next World Zionist Congress.
According to Burg, religious
Zionists are under siege by the
Reform movement, which is "try-
ing to muscle in on the Zionist
movement" through its consti-
tuent bodies such as the Jewish
Agency and the World Zionist
Burg expressed fear that the
Reform movement, which is
vigorously seeking equal status in
Israel, may align itself with the
Labor camp to try to oust the
religious factions from Zionist
He warned of dangers, such as a
recent resolution adopted by the
Zionist Actions Committee, the
supreme body of the movement
between Congresses, which would
bar funding for non-Zionist or
anti-Zionist yeshivas in Israel.
Burg urged the religious Zionist
movement to organize itself for
the Congress elections to counter
encroachments by Reform
elements. He said the religious
camp in Israel is under-
represented in the Zionist move-
ment and is apathetic about its
role in the movement.
HE CALLED on Reform Jews
to come to Israel on aliyah before
trying to gain influence in Zionist
bodies in proportion to their
strength in the United States. The
Zionist Congress is not for
everyone, just for Zionists, Burg
Burg was questioned about
freedom of religion and worship in
Israel. "There is freedom of wor-
ship in Israel, every human being
can worship God in the way he
sees fit," the Orthodox leader
With respect to the recent con-
frontation in the Baka suburb of
Jerusalem when ultra-Orthodox
Jews attempted by force to inter-
rupt Simchat Torah services at a
Reform congregation, Burg said
the incident was "unhappy." He
called it a "clash between per-
sonalities" who have since made
peace with each other.
THE REFORM congregation
dropped criminal charges against
the local Orthodox chief rabbi,
Eliahu Agergil, who gave a writ-
ten promise never again to in-
terfere with Reform services.
According to Burg, "The bone
of contention is not in the form of
worshipping, but the absolute
necessity of having the (religious)

DE CUELLAR recalled that
the Yom Kippur War between
Egypt and Israel in 1973 almost
led to direct confrontation bet-
ween the United States and the
Soviet Union. He warned that a
new war in the Mideast, "with the
development of ever more
sophisticated and destructive
weapons," may be more difficult
to control and may indeed bring a
nuclear confrontation between
the superpowers.
"A just and lasting peace (in the
Mideast) can best be achieved
through a comprehensive settle-
ment covering all aspects of the
conflict and involving all the par-
ties concerned, including the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion," de Cuellar said.
A comprehensive Mideast set-
tlement, he continued, must be
based on "withdrawal of Israeli
forces from Arab territories oc-
cupied since June, 1967;
acknowledgement and respect for
the sovereignty, territorial in-
tegrity and political independence
of all the states in the region and

and finally a satisfactory solution

nian people, including self-

in the West Bank. "I am par-
ticularly concerned about the con-
sequences that would flow from
the establishment by Israel of ad-
ditional settlements in the oc-
cupied territories," de Cuellar
said, adding:
"This is a matter of deep con-
cern and, more than any other
single factor, contributes to
doubts in the minds of many about
Israel's readiness to negotiate a
peace settlement that would re-
quire its withdrawal from the
But the Secretary General also
was critical of violent incidents in
the region as a major obstacle to
peace. "Peace efforts would be
enhanced if there was a lessening
of violent incidents, which all too
frequently involve innocent lives
and of which there have been
some particularly terrible ex-
amples" in the last year, he
Israeli Woman Wins $12 Million Lottery
Israeli woman who immigrated 20
years ago to the United States
won $12 million in the latest New
York State lottery. Last Monday
morning, Osnat Burdman arrived
at the lottery office with her hus-
band and her winning ticket, with
the number combination of 18,31,
24, 36, 45 and 47, to claim her
share of the $24 million Lotto
jackpot. As of Thursday the
holder of the second winning
ticket has not come forward.
Mrs. Burdman, 55, who is mar-
ried to Dr. Mortimer Burdman,
69, said that she had purchased 60
tickets in a stationery store in
Manhasset, N.Y. She said that she
has always played the combina-
tion of numbers that won her the
great prize, adding the numbers
were a mixture of Hebrew letters,
her husband's birthday "and a few
numbers I threw in at random."
Mrs. Burdman, who has been
working as a salesclerk at her
daughter's boutique in
Manhasset, lives with her surgeon
husband in Albertson, N.Y. She
has two daughters from a
previous marriage, while her
Brooklyn-born husband has one
son. They have been married for
13 years. The couple said they
plan to retire soon, "Probably
tomorrow," Dr. Burdman said
with a smile.

Vigilant Parents
What ought to be remembered at this time
of the year is that the Public Schools must be
religiously neutral, a principle long
established in an equally long line of judicial
decisions. The Supreme Court has defined
"religiously neutral" as meaning that the
government may not promote any or all
religions, express opposition or hostility to
any or all religion or to no religion, or show
preference for one religion over another.
This hardly means that schools may not
teach about religion. Public Schools should
indeed take cognizance of religion and its
role in our society. Programs which teach
about religion and its role in the historical
development of civilization, as well as its
current role in society, ought to be
developed in the school curricula, providing
they do not violate the religious neutrality of
the school system.
Especially for the Jewish community it
must be emphasized that joint celebrations
of Christmas and Chanukah are no more ac-
ceptable than individual observances. Such
observances only introduce more improper
religious participatory activity into the
Public Schools. They also tend to place
holidays in competition with one another
and typically distort each holiday as a
distinct religious experience in the minds of
Parents who may be assuaged in their
more sensible rejection of any religious
observance in the Public School classroom or
auditorium by the observance of any type of
Chanukah ceremony as well, are con-
tributing to a double assault one to the
separation of church and state principle and
also one upon the understanding of children,
both Jewish and Christian, who come to con-
fuse these separate and distinct holidays as
essentially the same thing.
In the end, because Public Schools are
responsible for teaching our children the
principles of American democracy, it is par-
ticularly important that they observe the
principle of separation of church and state in
the First Amendment as an essential ele-
ment of our religious liberty.
Kahane's Divisiveness
In an address before the National Press
Club in Washington the other Wednesday,
Rabbi Meir Kahane, head of the extremist
Kach Party in Israel, predicted that the Uni-
ty Government there would not survive
another year because the Labor Party would
ultimately call in its chips and demand new
In this, Kahane expressed no regret, saw
no contradiction in the survival of the Unity
Government with Shimon Peres at the helm
for its two alloted years, and predicted that
his own Kach Party would be there on the
sidelines to pick up the pieces as Likud and
Labor ultimately went to war.
In the end, surely Rabbi Kahane had
heated visions at the National Press Club of
his own elevation to Prime Minister.
At just about the same time, former Prime
Minister Shimon Peres was speaking to
American Jewish Congress officials in New
York and, on Thursday (Nov. 13), before a
session in Chicago of the Conference of
Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds.
On both those occasions, Peres spoke not
about war but of peace. Dominantly on his
mind was the growing hostility between
American and Orthodox Israeli Jews over
questions of religion notably, Orthodoxy's
determined struggle to keep the U.S.

Reform Jewish movement from establishing

violent confrontation.
Mr. Peres' note was one that accented
"civilization" the need for mutual respect
and, above all, unity among Jewish
brethren. In this call for unity, the former
Prime Minister has an enviable record of ex-
perience in the Unity Government's first
It is our hope that, in its second phase
under Yitzhak Shamir and Likud, the record
will be one of equal "civilization." Much has
already been written about the remarkable
achievement of a coalition agreement which,
in 1984 when it was forged, gave little
reason for hope of success.
Much, all of us trust, will be written again
in 1988, when the Unity Government fulfills
its original mandate.
This is what needs to be emphasized. Mr.
Peres did just that in New York and
Chicago. In Washington, Rabbi Kahane
spouted only divisiveness and threats of war
among brothers.

hate; let's decide our positions and
listen to one another, among your
synagogues and between the
religious and secular."
THE FOREIGN Minister's
remarks were in keeping with the
General Assembly theme of Klal
Yiarael, the pursuit of unity in the
midst of diversity and the coex-
istence of diversity for the sake of
His remarks were also made
against a backdrop of discord and
disharmony between the Or-
thodox on the one side and the
Reform and Conservative
movements on the other over
numerous issues of halacha
(Jewish law), and the restriction
imposed on the Conservative and
Reform movements in Israel by
the Orthodox establishment.
Peres, whose remarks on the
imperative need for Jewish unity
were greeted by prolonged ap-
plause, said, "I think it is for you
and for us to mobilize goodwill, to
call upon the heads of each strain
to see the need for Klal, Yisrael,
not just the conviction of each
synagogue, important as it may
be, and to find the necessary
wisdom and patience and talent to
have our arguments in a way that
won't split us to pieces."
SPEAKING OF another kind of
unity, Peres focused on the rela-
tions between the United States
and Israel. He said the two coun-
tries are in "an era of cooperation
like never before and with nobody
else. We are not afraid of the
greatness of the United States
and the United States is not wor-
ried about the smallness of
Israel." He did not specify the
areas of cooperation nor did he
allude to reports about Israel's
cooperation with the U.S. in sen-
ding arms to Iran.
He said Israel was very proud of
the fact that the U.S. recently
recognized Israel "by a very
special name, and I shall pro-
nounce it very clearly a non-
NATO ally." But Peres explained
that Israel is esentially different
than America's European allies in
a number of ways.
"We do not ask the American
army to protect our land or our
skies," he asserted. "We shall do
that ourselves. We are allies
because we are not reluctant, we
are not shy or apologetic in our
relations with the U.S. American
equipment, up to a point. Israeli
risk, when necessary. Definitely, a
non-NATO situation."
stressed by Peres was interna-
tional cooperation to fight ter-
rorism on a global scale. "The real
danger which innocent people and
nations of goodwill are facing is
not so much full-fledged wars run
by armies but the terrible criminal
violence of terror," he said. "I
think in many ways Israel was
forced to be the first to confront it
and the U.S. the second."
Terrorism, Peres said, must be
curbed if the peace process in the
Middle East is to continue. He
said that Israel and the U.S. can
help bring peace to the Mideast
for all the people. "Our enemies
are not Arabs, Moslems or
Our enemies are hostility,
belligerency and war," Peres
He said that "an international
involvement is also necessary in
order to stop terrorism. The cost
of terror from the point of view of
its victims is high. But terror also
affects the Arab world itself.
Leaders are frightened to death
because of the continuous threat
to their lives, from the level of
mayors to the heads of state. They
cannot make the right choice.
"They cannot select the
necessary policies in order to save
themselves from the terrible ex-
pense of military preparedness
and the ongoing danger of a new
war. Unless terrorism is fought,
peace will not happen at all."
PERES URGED the nations of
Europe, especially West Germany
as well as Japan, whose gross na-
tional products have increased
steeply over the past few years
and whose economies are well
organized and viable, to help the
Arabs economically.
"The economic situation of
some of the Arab countries
became so dramatic that their
own governments, their own
systems are in real danger, and
unless real help is offered the
danger will be augmented and the
road to peace will be impeded," he
But, Peres emphasized, while
international cooperation is
necessary to combat terrorism
and to help stabilize the economies
of Arab countries, the interna-
tional community cannot impose
solutions on the Arabs and Israel.
"No imposed solution will be a
success. The road to peace is
through free negotiations bet-
ween Israel and her Arab
neighbors," he said.
ISRAEL IS intent on pursuing
peace, Peres said, and has proved
this in relation to Egypt and its
ongoing efforts with Jordan.
"Israel is strong enough to defend
itself and is strong enough to go
and negotiate peace with our
neighbors," he stated. "We have
won all the wars that have been
forced upon us. We have decided
this time to win a peace."
The world, Peres observed, "is
convinced that Israel is sincere in
trying to halt the dispute between
the Arabs and ourselves, peaceful-
ly, diplomatically." One of the
consequences of this, he noted, is
that it "helps create a climate of
support for the peace process in
the United States among the peo-
ple and in Congress."
Israel, Peres continued, has
moved in the direction of bringing
peace to the Mideast without the
help of the United Nations. The
war with Lebanon has come to an
end, the dispute with Egypt over
Tabs has been settled, Arab
mayors have been given increas-
ing authority to run their own
municipalities in the West Bank,
and a Jordanian bank has been
allowed to open in the West Bank.
"Terror has subsided in the West
Bank," Peres observed. "There is
50 percent less terror this year
than the preceding year."
MEANWHILE Israel internal-
ly still faces some problems. Peres
said there is "no sense in covering
up the divisiveness in Israel bet-
ween Sephardim and
Ashkenazim, between religious
and secular groups and between
religious groups themselves as
well and between the secular
groups as well, and the Arabs in
Israel who do not get a feeling of
But, he added, "I have a feeling
that the ethnic divisiveness is
diminishing. A great thing has
happened. Both the Ashkenazim
and Sephardim have begun to feel
Jewish. They have a greater feel-
ing of equality. We are correcting
some mistakes regarding the
Arab minority. We are implemen-
ting the things we demanded
when we were minorities."
Peres also listed some other
achievements in Israel, including
a balanced budget, a halt to infla-
tion, increased foreign trade and a
decreased trade deficit, the ab-
sorption of 16,000 Ethiopian Jews
who came to Israel under Opera-
tion Moses, and the ongoing
rehabilitation of impoverished
neighborhoods under Project
The next task for Israel inter-
nally is to settle the Negev, "the
last frontier of Israel," as Peres
put it, and to make the desert
bloom in line with the vision of
David Ben Gurion, Israel's first
Prime Minister. The centennial of
his birth is being celebrated this

Angry Controversy
Friday, November 21, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 5
Stirred by Broadcast of Diary
The broadcast of excerpts
from a diary kept by
Mordechai Vanunu has
touched off an angry con-
troversy between civil liber-
tarians and Israel Television
over the right to privacy.
Vanunu is the former nuclear
technican who is in custody for
giving a British newspaper infor-
mation about Israel's alleged
nuclear weapons capability. His
lawyer, Amnon Zichroni, said that
he might press charges against
the Israel Broadcast Authority.
A TELEVISION reporter said
he found the diary in a suitcase in
a building where Vanunu once liv-
ed. It covers the years from
1982-85 and reveals the writer's
attitudes toward women, family,
philosophy, religion and finances.
The excerpts read on television
Friday night described growing
sympathy with the Arab cause.
They depicted a troubled man who
had difficulty communicating with
others, who had a "strong urge to
prove himself' and who feared he
was being "followed."
.The Civil Rights Association
criticized the publication of the
diary as a "gross invasion of
privacy." According to the
Association, "A man's diary is one
of his most intimate writings and
cannot be publicized without his
consent." The Broadcast Authori-
ty was accused of violating a 1981
law for protection of privacy.
BUT THE Authority maintain-
ed that Vanunu stands accused of
serious offenses against the State
and has lost his right to privacy.
Uri Porat, Director General of the
Broadcast Authority, said pains
were taken not to publicize
anything about Vanunu that is not
already known and to resist "the
temptation to score a great many
journalistic scoops which were
contained in the diary."
The reporter who obtained it
claimed a relative of Vanunu
authorized its publication.
Zichroni, meanwhile, is on his
way to London to prepare for the
case. Vanunu was last seen in
London on Sept. 30. The govern-
ment acknowledged only last
week that he was "under lawful
detention" in Israel and denied he
had been kidnapped by Israeli
agents. When and how he was
brought to Israel remains

Do British Want More Vanunu Info? Israeii Leftists Who Met plo
Mordechai Vanunu, the
former technician at the
Dimona nuclear facility, will
be charged with either
treason or espionage for
allegedly revealing secret
information about Israel's
nuclear weapons
If convicted of espionage, the
31-year-old Israeli who recently
converted to the Christian faith
would face life imprisonment.
Capital punishment applies for
The government has announced
that Vanunu is being held in Israel
"under lawful detention" and is
represented by counsel. The state-
ment, released after a Cabinet
meeting last week, was the first
official acknowledgement that
Vanunu, who was reported miss-
ing in London Oct. 1, is in Israel.
HE WAS remanded in custody
for 15 days by order of a senior
police officer, an indication of the
gravity of the charges which will
be brought against him. In cases
other than espionage or treason, a
suspect cannot be detained unless
brought before a judge within 48
hours of arrest.
The government statement said
that Vanunu was checked by a
medical doctor shortly after he
was brought to Israel. It em-
phatically denied charges that he
was kidnapped in London by
Israeli agents and brought here
against his will. But there was no
indication of how or when he ar-
rived in Israel.
Britain has formally asked
Israel to clarify this. The British
Ambassador, William Squires, has
contacted the Foreign Ministry's
political director general, Yossi
Beilin, to request further informa-
tion. Squires was acting on in-
structions from the Foreign Office
in London.

Shamir Says Israel Didn't
Violate Laws in Britain
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
said here that Israel did not
violate British laws in con-
nection with Mordechai
Vanunu's transfer from Bri-
tain to Israel, and has in-
formed the British govern-
ment accordingly. He also
insisted that "Israel is not
selling arms to Iran."
Shamir, who spoke to reporters
while touring the Yemenite Israeli
township of Rosh Haayin, was
referring to London's request for
further information in the case of
Vanunu, a former technician at
the Dimona nuclear facility who is
under detention in Israel for
allegedly giving a British
newspaper information about
Israel's nuclear weapons
THE ISRAELI government
acknowledged last Sunday (Nov.
9) that Vanunu, who was reported
missing in London on Oct. 1, is in
Israel, but did not say how and
when he got here. The govern-
ment emphatically denied reports
that he was kindapped by Israeli
agents on British soil.
Shamir said there was "no basis
for any crisis of confidence or split
between Britain and Israel," as
some sources have speculated in
the Vanunu case. "After all, we
have informed Britain that we
have done nothing to contravene
the laws of Britain. Therefore
there is no reason for any com-
plaints against Israel," he said.
The question of Israeli arms
sales to Iran arose from American
media reports that Israel played
the "middleman" in a clandestine
operation by the National Securi-
ty Council to secure the release of
American hostages held by pro-
Iranian groups in Lebanon in
return for weapons.
ASKED IF Israel had been sell-
ing arms to Iran earlier, Shamir
replied, "Israel does not deal with
supplying weapons to Iran."
Vanunu hopes for a public trial
and that the veil of secrecy around
him be dropped, according to his
lawyer, Amnon Zichroni.
Zichroni met with Vanunu in a
new cell, to which the suspect was
transferred at Zichroni's in-
sistence. There is still no word on
the location of the prison.
Vanunu reportedly is under con-
stant observation "for fear that
he might hurt himself." But
Zichroni told reporters that he
found Vanunu to be in good
spirits. He is reading a lot, keep-
ing to his vegetarian diet and has
begun a beard.
members of Parliament and the
The Thatcher government has
already denied media reports that
the Prime Minister was secretly
advised by Shimon Peres last
month that Israeli agents would
abduct Vanunu on British soil and
that she did not raise objections.
This allegedly occurred while
Peres was still Israeli Premier,
before the rotation of power.
Initial reaction in Jerusalem to
the British inquiry is that there is
no need for explanations beyond
the announcement that Vanunu
was in custody.
After the government's admis-
sion that Vanunu is in custody,
Amnon Zichroni, a lawyer well
known in leftist circles, revealed
that he had been appointed to
represent the suspect at his own
request. Zichroni told reporters
that he asked Premier Yitzhak
Shamir several days ago to an-
nounce publicly that Vanunu was
being held in Israel.
In Bucharest Were Detained
JERUSALEM (JTA) Four Israeli leftists who
headed a delegation that met in Bucharest recently with
representatives of the Palestine Liberation Organization
were detained by police for questioning to determine if they
violated a law barring Israelis from contact with members
of terrorist organizations.
The three-hour interrogation was conducted at the cen-
tral district police headquarters in Ramla. The four were
released on bail and were not summoned for further
questioning. .

EACH OF THE SUSPECTS was questioned separate-
ly. One of them, Yael Lotan, told reporters afterwards that
"We had replies for all the questions asked." She said, "We
went to Rumania, accompanied by a lawyer, not to violate
the law, but in order to convey a message of peace."
Lotan noted that the dialogue was held under the
auspices of the Rumanian government in a public hall
where 29 Israelis sat on one side and the Palestinians on
the other.

May Have Prevented Sour Relations
Israel's unexpected an-
nouncement that it is indeed
holding atom-suspect
Mordechai Vanunu in
custody and that he is to
face trial may have come
just in time to prevent a
dangerous deterioration in
relations between London
and Jerusalem.
There can be little doubt that the
timing of the Cabinet Secretary's
statement Israel's first official
word on this seven-week-old saga
was linked to the growing wave
of media speculation in Britain
that Vanunu, the former Dimona
nuclear reactor technician, was
kidnapped from British soil by
Israeli agents.
WORSE STILL, the British
press early last week was sug-
gesting that Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher had actually
been apprised ahead of time, by
then-Premier Shimon Peres of
Israel's intention to abduct
Vanunu, an extreme left-winger
who left Israel for Australia last
year, sold what purported to be
detailed plans of a nuclear-bomb-
manufacturing facility at Dimona
to the Sunday Times of London.
He presumably will be charged
with treason in what is likely to be
a closed-door trial.
The Israeli statement took pains
to insist that Vanunu had not been
snatched from British soil and
therefore no conversation about
such an abduction had taken place
between Thatcher and Peres.
According to reports from Lon-
don last week, the government
there is making a determined ef-
fort to make do with this terse
Israeli position and to have the
British media make do with it, too.
PLAINLY, had Israel con-
tinued to stay silent, the credibili-
ty of one of its major friends on
the world stage, Thatcher, would
have been seriously jeopardized as
the story continued to burgeon on
Fleet Street. The British Premier
could have been damagingly
In addition, Israel's top
policymakers and their legal ad-
visers may have been prompted to
act now and release a public state-
ment for fear of being forced to by
the High Court of Justice.
But beyond these tactical and
legal considerations, Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir, Foreign Minister
Peres and Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin may well have been
moved by a more fundamental ex-
amination of Israel's condition at
this most extremely delicate junc-
ture in its various foreign relation-
ships and especially relation-
ships connected with covert
THEY MAY have decided to
clean up, as best they could, the
messy aftermath of the Vanunu
affair before bracing themselves
to face possibly heavy fallout from
the arms-to-Iran affair.
The Israeli policymakers are keen-
ly aware of the still ominous build-
up of questioning and criticism
within the American political com-
munity over insistent reports that
the U.S. and Iran are engaged in
longtime negotiations and
tradeoffs involving arms for
hostages and that Israel is play-
ing the role of secret middleman,
and supplier of the arms to the
Khomeini regime.
At the moment, criticism and
opposition from at home and
abroad are focused at the Reagan
Administration. Critics charge
that dealing with Iran over
hostages' lives undermines the
very essence of America's pur-
ported policies on terrorism.
But Israel, which according to
some U.S. media reports initiated
the negotiation, is bound to take a
great deal of flak itself if this af-
fair continues to gather
Politicians and pundits are
bound to point out that Israel is
always stridently advocating an
arms boycott of any state abetting
terror and yet here is evidence
that the same Israel is actively
participating in an ongoing arms-
supply relationship with the
quintessential terrorist state.
INDEED, Israel has called
forcefully on France to abandon
plans to sell arms to Syria,
because of Syria's close involve-
ment in terrorism as unmasked in
the Hindawi trial in London.
European Community Foreign
Ministers were due to discuss
their relationships with Syria at a
meeting in London last week
and Israel's position is one they
would naturally hear out, if not
necessarily adopt.
But that position must in-
evitably be weakened by the
steady stream of reports that
Israel is itself, on behalf of the
U.S., selling weapons to Iran.
Compounding Israel's discom-
fort is a string of other damaging
intelligence-related episodes:
The Pollard affair, involving
U.S. Naval analyst Jonathan Jay
Pollard, who allegedly passed on
American secret assessments to
the Israelis, hit the headlines just
one year ago and the scars it
left are still unhealed.

the cover-up of an illegal killing of
two Palestinian terrorists, is not

'I Didn't Know They Were PLO
Friday, November 21, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
Natan Sharansky issued a
public apology last Thurs-
day (Nov. 13) for meeting
with pro-PLO Palestinians
in East Jerusalem early, last
week. "I learned that" the
delegation that met with me
was identified with the PLO
only after our meeting. Had
I known this fact in ad-
vance, the meeting never
would have taken place,"
Sharansky said.
Sharansky's statement, a fierce
attack on the PLO and avowal of
confidence in the government's
methods of fighting it, was issued
after the Soviet Jewry activist
came under fire from Orthodox
and rightwing circles for meeting
the Palestinians.
THE GROUP he met with is
seeking to block a deportation
order against East Jerusalem
editor Akhram Haniye, whom the
authorities accuse of PLO activity
in the administered territories,
though not of direct involvement
in terrorist acts.
The moBt prominent among
them is Feisal Husseini, a leading
East Jerusalem intellectual sym-
pathetic to the PLO. Husseini said
last Thursday that Sharansky
made his statement under heavy
pressure from right-wing Israelis.
Sharansky said: "The people of
Israel are waging a war of self-
defense against the PLO, a
Natan Sharansky
criminal terror organization
whose goal is the denial of the
legitimate rights of the Jewish
people to their homeland, and
ultimately the destruction of the
State of Israel. Both the aims and
the barbarous methods of this
organization of cut-throats violate
every human standard.
"THE PLO and those who sup-
port it place themselves beyond
the pale of civilized society. I
learned that the delegation that
met with me was identified with
the PLO only after our meeting.
Had I known this fact in advance,
the meeting would never have
taken place.
"... The blood of my brothers is
on their hands ... I have full con-
fidence that the government and
security forces of Israel are wag-
ing an unrelenting battle for our
protection The pursuit of this
goal in accordance with the laws
of the State of Israel and subject
to the judicial scrutiny of the
Israeli Supreme Court is in no
way a violation of human
rights. ."
Haniye has appealed to the
Supreme Court against his depor-
tation. The order will not be im-
plemented until the high court
rules on the appeal.
Soviet Mission
Protesters Freed
From Charges
Charges have been dropped by
New York City Criminal Court
Justice Roger Hayes against all 55
rabbis and laypersons who were
arrested Oct. 12 at the Soviet UN
Mission here. Their demonstra-
tion coincided with the Reagan-
Gorbachev Iceland summit
meeting and Yom Kippur eve.
The protesters, who had been
charged with disorderly conduct,
were organized by the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry and the
Long Island Committee for Soviet
Jewry as part of "Operation
Redemption," a series of peaceful
arrests at Soviet offices in the
New York area in which 415 per-
sons have been arrested since
January 1985, including 173 rab-
bis and 12 legislators.
Soviet Jewry activist, Natan
Sharansky came under at-
tack from Orthodox political
circles last Wednesday
(Nov. 12) for a meeting he
had early in the week with
Palestinian leaders in East

leftists in the Knesset im-
mediately sprang to his

SHARANSKY met discreetly
with Feisal Husseini, a prominent
pro-PLO Palestinian intellectual,
and reportedly with other Palesti-
nian activists in connection with
the deportation order against
Akhram Haniye, editor of the
East Jerusalem Arabic daily A
Shaab. The meeting became
known generally only after
Druckman attacked Sharansky
for it.
Husseini, who heads the Palesti-
nian Research Center in East
Jerusalem, is a leading figure in a
public movement to block the
deportation. The movement con-
sists mainly of Palestinian
academicians and journalists, but
they have been joined by a grow-
ing number of Israeli liberals.
Many of the latter attended a pro-
test rally for Haniye at an East
Jerusalem theater.
Haniye's case will be considered
by the Supreme Court. His at-
torney, Felicia Langer, lodged an
appeal after a military review
board in Nablus upheld the depor-
tation order at a hearing.
THE ISRAEL Defense Force
Central Command ordered the
editor expelled to Jordan on
grounds that he has been involved
in PLO activity in the ad-
ministered territories. But the
IDF acknowledged that Haniye is
not linked directly to any terrorist
MK Ram Cohen of the leftist
Citizens Rights Movement (CRM)
said at the East Jerusalem rally
that the expulsion of Haniye
would hinder the peace process.
He said Israel should be ashamed
to resort to "colonialist laws
under which our own people
previously suffered." He was
referring to the British Mandate
regulations under which Haniye
was ordered deported.

call for pluralism in Jewish

the entire convention which ended
"WE BELIEVE that honest
differences can be a source of

to shrill and strident discourse.'
The CJF leader emphasized that
"the Federation environment
must not be used to leverage
specific religious or ideological
support at the expense of other
religious persuasions and
ideologies .. Respect for dif-
ferent ideological, religious or
Klitical persuasions we accept,
imanding that one ideology or
persuasion prevail to the exclu-
sion of others we decry."
Cardin's address was a dramatic
reaffirmation that the CJF is a
collectivity of diversity in unity
and the unity of diverse elements
and views, all working to
"enhance the opportunities for ef-
fective community building" and
making it "a shared responsibili-

ticipants who braved freezing
weather, that the fight for Soviet
Jews is "not a fight with Russia,
not out of hatred. We are a
peaceful people. The struggle is
for the right to be a people with
our own tradition who want to be
able to pray to the Lord, educate
our children in our culture and live
a Jewish life." He called the effort
"the moral struggle of our time,"
a struggle "that we shall win."
Chicago Mayor Harold
Washington echoed that view in
his remarks at the rally. He said
"this is a moral struggle in which
there are no neutrals. We choose
to stand for the right of Soviet
Jews to practice their own
religion without fear of repression
or reprisal and for those who
chose to leave to be allowed to do
Eloquent appeals on behalf on

Raymond Epstein, chairman and
former president of the CJF; Mor-

- and Pamela Cohen, president of

ty," as she put it. All Jews, Cardin
declared, "should be participatory
Jews." She noted that "Judaism
is not a spectator ideology."
HER ADDRESS was in many
ways markedly different in scope
and substance than those CJF
presidents have delivered in
previous General Assemblies. It
was less concrete in terms of
organizational guidelines, but
more powerful in terms of a
philosophical guideline for "a vi-
sion of Klal Yisrael at home,
abroad and in Israel."
Without specifying, her urgent
appeal for pluralism in Jewish life
alluded to some of the discordant
and vexing religious, social and
economic issues extant in Jewish
These ideas include: the ongoing
conflict over who is a Jew; the role
of the Orthodox establishment in
Israel; the nuclear weapons build-
up by the United States and
Soviet Union; the Reagan Ad-
ministration's economic and social
policies affecting the lower and
middle income segments of
American society; the Jewish
community as a single or multi-
issues-oriented community; and
attitudes toward abortion, the
sanctuary movement, and the
kind of leadership the Jewish com-
munity requires to assure its
vitality and viability.
CARDIN ALSO obliquely
criticized financially affluent
movers and shakers in the com-
munity who seek to use their in-
fluence to try to sway the Federa-
tion movement toward their
views, as well as the Reform
movement, which has indicated
that it would have to rethink its
financial contributions to Israel
unless it was allowed a greater
role in religious affairs.
"CJF and Federations must
maintain an open forum where all
can participate, where all can ex-
press themselves without feeling
threatened and without threaten-
ing others. We must be extremely
wary of tactics which may be coer-
cive or tactics which may seek to
threaten our ability to respond to
the needs of Klal Yisrael by
withholding money," she said.
"Money should not and cannot
be used as an instrument for the
pursuit of specific ideological or
religious primacy in the pursuit of
power or to redress grievances
... I call upon our co-workers in
all the ideological and political
movements of Jewish life to re-
main fervent and passionately
committed to their ideologies to
seek to persuade to seek to
engage one another through
creative, civil and effective
"I MUST, however, be candid. I
fear that a significant segment of
our people can be alienated as a
result of the animosity and hostili-
ty that is being generated in our
communal framework. Some may
even choose a spectator role
because of this negativism."
Cardin urged the assembled
leaders to "be prepared to take
risks and design new approaches
test new ideas and experiment
with new modes in the art and
science of what the French call
'engage' in order to build a more
just, more open and more
equitable larger society."
Cardin said the task of Federa-
tions is to maintain an effective
and all-inclusive Jewish communi-
ty by demonstrating "that our
doors are open to all who can
belong ... to all who may wish to
participate but don't know how.
"JEWS IN OUR continental
community, affiliated or unaf-
filiated, detached or even
alienated, must begin to feel
viscerally that the communal
enterprise the Jewish Federation
wants them, is ready to em-
brace them and make room for
them .
"We should not set precondi-
tions, on the contrary, we must
convey the message that our com-
munal enterprise the Jewish
Federation extends itself and
invites every individual and every
discrete group into an interdepen-
dent relationship with community,
representing our belief that 'all
Jews are responsible to and for
one another.' '

years because of the emergence of
anti-Zionism in some Labor circles
here. Labor Party leader Neil Kin-

not avoid the impression that
some Japanese companies decide
to boycott Israel after consulting
official Japanese authorities.
MOREOVER, no Japanese
economic mission has ever visited
Israel, nor indeed has any govern-
ment minister in all the years of
Israel's existence.
The boycott is exercised mainly
by the large Japanese con-
glomerates, most of which either
refuse to deal with Israel or are
willing to do so only indirectly,
through trading companies set up
for this purpose, dummy com-
panies or third countries. Smaller
companies, which do little
business with the Arab states, are
frequently more amenable to
trading with Israel.
There is a reluctance among
Japanese importers to purchase
Israeli-made consumer goods
which would receive wide public
On the other hand, there is
greater willingness to buy Israeli
cut diamonds, chemicals, and elec-
tronic equipment, which are less
exposed to the public eye. But
even here, Israeli exporters fre-
quently come across difficulties.
For example, the Japanese
agricultural cooperatives associa-
tion, Zennoh, which for 26 years
imported potash from the Dead
Sea Works, suddenly stopped.
While there is no proof that Zen-
noh acted because of boycott
pressures, there is no apparent
commercial reason to explain the
THE BOYCOTT is even more
evident in Japan's exports to
Israel. Take the case of Toyota.
Despite several offers by Israeli
firms to act as Toyota
distributors, Toyota has declined.
While Toyota has claimed that it
was not participating in the
boycott of Israel, that its decisions
were purely economic, it has
never substantiated that claim.
And, in 1981, Toyota aborted a
joint venture with Ford Motors
after Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and
Iraq warned of retaliation if
Toyota conducted business with
Ford, which does business with
Israel and was on the Arab
boycott list until recently.
Another example is Nissan,
which has also never done
business with Israel. In a July 9,
1969, letter to Arditi, Ltd. of Tel
Aviv, a Nissan Motors official
"We are now exporting around
20,000 units a year to the Arabic
countries, and have already
penetrated the market. According
to the boycott resolution by the
Israel Boycott Committee, the
transaction with your country
(Israel) will surely create the total
ban of our export to the Arab
"Judging from the above-
mentioned, we would unfor-
tunately decline your proposal at
this moment."
IN MARCH, 1970, the
Jerusalem Post reported that
Nissan attempted to "allay Arab

fears" after it was announced that
Nissan and Ford would engage in
a co-production deal. The Post ar-
ticle noted that a Nissan
spokesman hoped that the com-
pany's assurances to the Arabs
would be "sufficient to dispel the
misunderstanding that Japanese
car makers were Biding with
Soon thereafter, when Nissan
denied that it had been par-
ticipating in the boycott, ADL
characterized its claim as being
"totally false and part of Nissan's
continuing pattern of double
talk." There have been no new
Other major Japanese com-
panies dealing in durables, such as
Sanyo, Sharp and National, trade
with Israel only indirectly. It is
not uncommon for Japanese firms
approached by potential Israeli
customers to inform them openly
that, due to the Arab boycott,
they are unable to supply the
desired items. For example, the
Japanese company Mochida refus-
ed to sell medical supplies to an
Israeli hospital and stated in
writing that the boycott was the
finance services are affected as
well. A notable example is Japan
Airlines (JAL). Talks between El
Al and JAL about possible air
agreements began in 1967 but
went nowhere. In 1970, ADL in-
formed JAL that it considered the
airline to be taking part in the
Arab boycott.
And in February, 1973, ADL
stated publicly that JAL had "con-
sistently refused to establish
mutual landing rights with the
Israeli airline, El Al," and had
adopted a public relations pro-
gram "to mask its continuing par-
ticipation in the Arab economic
boycott of Israel." To this day,
JAL refrains from landing in
Ships bearing the Israeli flag do
call on Japanese ports, but no
Japanese ships drop anchor in
Israel. Japanese banks generally
refuse to grant commercial credit
lines for over 180 days or long-
term financing for exports of
capital goods to Israel.
Japan's heavy dependence on
Arab oil and markets for invest-
ment is seen as the chief reason
for its submission to the boycott.
With the decline of OPEC in re-
cent years, hope grows that
Japanese policy will change. The
visits during the past two years by
Yitzhak Shamir as Israel's
Foreign Minister, Finance
Edward Koch
Minister Yitzhak Modai and
Cabinet members Moshe Arens
and Amnon Rubinstein, the
highest Israeli officials to visit
Japan since the oil revolution of
1973, gave rise to further
JAPANESE companies have
begun to show interest in Israeli
achievements in the field of
research and development and
high-tech industries. Seminars on
the Israeli economy have been
held in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya,
with some 200 top executives of
Japanese industry participating.
And in November, 1985, Israel's
Minister of Economy and Plann-
ing, Gad Yaacobi, said that a
number of Japanese industrialists
had expressed interest in setting
up joint enterprises with Israel to
take advantage of Israel's
favorable trade terms with the
U.S. and the Common Market
Still, barriers remain. Mayor
Koch, upon his return to the U.S.,
reported that in a private meeting
Prune Minister Nakaaone had
reiterated Japan's intention to
continue to support the boycott.
Disturbingly, the Japanese
language press gave not even a
word of coverage to Mayor Koch's
public comments critical of
Japanese policy in this area.
And, when the Ford Motor
Company, which continues to do
business with Israel, was recently
removed from the Arab boycott
list, the chairman of Mazda Cor-
poration was reported to declare
his company would now deepen
ties to Ford. Although Mazda's
chairman denied to ADL any
boycott compliance motivation,
his company has consistently
turned down requests from
businessmen wishing to distribute
cars in Israel.

Only Slight Chance
For Leukemia Victim To Make It
Doctors treating leukemia
victim Michael Shirman said
last Thursday that he has
only a 10-15 percent chance
of survival, even with a bone
marrow transplant from his
sister, Inessa Flerova,
because his condition has
deteriorated seriously in the
past 11 months.
They said that if Flerova had
been given permission to leave the
USSR last February, when she
first requested it, his chances
would have been as high as 50 per-
cent. Flerova arrived in Israel
with her family two weeks ago.
WITH SHIRMAN'S disease in
an advanced stage, the doctors
are uncertain whether to go ahead
with the transplant because of the
patient's weakened condition and
the poor outlook for success.
The prognosis was all the more
painful because tests showed that
Flerova's tissues are entirely com-
patible with her brother's. The
Rabin Confirms Israel
Supplied Arms to Iran
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin seemed to confirm
last Thursday (Nov. 13) that
Israel supplied arms to Iran
to help the U.S. obtain the
release of American
hostages held by pro-Iranian
groups in Lebanon.
Rabin told a luncheon meeting
of insurance agents here that" If a
country very friendly to Israel ap-
peals to us with certain requests
in order to help it free hostages,
we will help it, in one way or
another." He added, "I don't
think it is my duty to go into fur-
ther details as long as another
country the country concerned
has not done so."
RABIN MOST probably was
alluding to U.S. President
Reagan, who went on national
television last Thursday night to
explain his reasons for supplying
arms to Iran, which has been at
war with Iraq for six years. (The
New York Times and Washington
Post reported last Thursday that
Reagan personally acknowledged

According to media reports in
the U.S. and other countries,
Israel played the role of "mid-
dleman" in the clandestine opera-
tion by the White House's Na-

questioned by reporters last week,
Premier Yitzhak Shamir stated
flatly that "Israel does not deal
with supplying weapons to Iran."
Rabin stressed at the luncheon
that "Israel has never sold
American arms, or arms which in-
clude American-made com-
ponents, without previously ob-
taining U.S. approval." He said
international media reports to the
contrary "are completely false."
HE SAID Israel's policy was to
do everything possible to effect
the release of hostages by any
means, including deals if military
intervention was impossible. He
cited as an exmample the freeing

Reagan on Run
Reveals Economic Sanctions Against Syria
Friday, November 21, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 11
The Reagan Administra-
tion ended a week in which
its commitment to its of-
ficial anti-terrorism policy
was questioned by announc-
ing economic sanctions
against Syria.
The announcement by the
White House on Friday came
after President Reagan's
nationally-televised speech Thurs-
day night on the Administration's
secret 18-month dealings with
Iran, which like Syria is on the
State Department's list of states
that sponsor terrorism.
REAGAN SAID one of the four
aims of the talks with Iranian of-
ficials was to end Iran's sponsor-
ship of terrorism and subversion
of other countries.
"Since U.S. government con-
tact began with Iran, there's been
no evidence of Iranian govern-
ment complicity in acts of ter-
rorism against the United
States," the President said.
"Hostages have come home and
we welcome the efforts that the
government of Iran has taken in
the past and is currently
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes said the sanctions were
being taken because "the convic-
tion of Nezar Hindawi in a British
court directly implicated the
Syrian government in the attemp-
ti-ii bombing of the El Al plane.
More than 230 Americans and
almost 200 passengers of other
nationalities were on board the
flight and would have died had the
terrorist operation been
.( sman Charles Redman
id that Syria has been on the
Department's terrorism list since
1979, but until the El Ai attempt
it had "plausible denials" for most
terrorist acts linked to Damascus.
The sanctions announced by
Speakes followed the U.S. recall
of its Ambassador from Damascus
and Britain's break in relations
with Syria as well as some sanc-
tions by the European Economic
Community on Monday.
The U.S. sanctions include: ex-
panding the current restrictions
on exports to Syria to include na-
tional security items such as com-
puters, technical data, airplanes
and parts for planes; a ban on sell-
ing of tickets in the U.S. for the
Syrian national ariline; and the
reduction in the already small
number of staff at the U.S. Em-
bassy in Damascus and the Syrian
Embassy in Washington.
In addition, the Administration
is asking U.S. oil companies to
discontinue operating in Syria.
There also will be no high-level
visits between the U.S. and Syria.
REDMAN SAID the U.S. does
not expect the steps taken by the
U.S. to have an immediate effect,
but was sending a "signal" to
"These measures are intended
to convince the Syrian govern-
ment that state support of ter-
rorism will not be tolerated by the
civilized world," Speakes said.
"We will continue to closely
monitor the situation and take ad-
ditional steps as necessary."
Redman said that steps for
Syria to take are closing the Abu
Nidal group's office in Damascus
and shutting down the terrorist
groups operating from Syrian-
controlled territory in Lebanon.
Both Speakes and Redman
stressed that Syria cannot be ac-
cepted as a "responsible power"
and play the key role it has in the
Middle East as long as it con-
tinues to sponsor terrorism.
On Sunday, Syrian President
Hafez Al-Assad accused the U.S.
and Great Britain of supporting
terorist activities and called for
the formation of an international
committee to determine the
definition of terrorism.
REAGAN, in his speech last
Thursday night, said the U.S.
undertook the "secret diplomatic
initiative" with Iran not only to
convince it to end state-sponsored
terrorism, but to renew its rela-
tions with Iran to try to end the
Iran-Iraq war and to bring about
the safe return of American
hostages held in Lebanon.
He denied that the U.S. sent
arms to Iran to get the release of
hostages. He said he authorized
"small amounts of defensive
weapons and spare parts" as "a

Ragan said it was made clear to
the Iranians that they must op-
pose terrorism. "The most signifi-
cant step which Iran would take,
we indicated, would be to use its
influence on Lebanon to secure
the release of all hostages held
there," the President said.
REAGAN DID not mention any
Israeli role in the dealings with
Iran. A senior Administration of-
ficial, briefing foreign reporters
Friday, said there was "no Israeli
role." But he said there were
many intermediaries during the
18 months both from within the
Middle East and without.
However, there have been
reports that David Kimche was
one of the intermediaries when he
was director general of the Israel
Foreign Ministry.

Still No Leads
Police Continue To Probe Yeshiva Student's Murder
are continuing their investigation
into the murder of yeshiva student
Chaim Weiss, but a week after he
was found stabbed in his dor-
mitory room at the Torah High
School of Long Beach, L.I., local
law enforcement officials say they
still have no lead. Meanwhile,
Rabbi Shlomo Lesin, the school
administrator, said the yeshiva
has posted a $25,000 reward for
leads in the slaying.
Weiss, who would have been 16
years old in two weeks, was stabb-
ed while he slept by a reportedly
"heavy sort of knife" sometime
during Halloween eve. There
were no signs of forced entry or
theft in the victim's third-floor
dormitory room, which opened on-
to a fire escape. Weiss' body was
found by a dormitory leader when
he went to rouse the student for
Shabbat morning prayers.
THE FACTOR of anti-
Semitism has been largely dis-
counted by detectives assigned to
the case, although the murder
took place during Halloween
following some heckling and taun-
ting of the yeshiva students, and
some egg-throwing. Lesin told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
he has been there 17 years and has
felt no anti-Semitism during that
Kahane Hit
By Red Dye
Rabbi Meir Kahane,
leader of Israel's ultrana-
tionalist Kach Party, was
doused with red vegetable
dye last Wednesday (Nov.
12) as he spoke at the Na-
tional Press Club.
Kahane was not hurt and con-
tinued speaking, although his
face, hair, hands and clothes were
covered with the substance which
gave the appearance of blood.
"This Arab lives in Washington,
and this Jew lives in Jerusalem,"
Kahane commented after the
assailant fled the meeting room
only to be caught a few minutes-
HOWEVER, the assailant, who
was identified by police and club
officials as Daniel Brown, 26, of
Washington, is reportedly a Jew
born in Jerusalem who is a United
States citizen. Police arrested
Brown, whom Kahane charged
with simple assault.
The incident happened as
Kahane was speaking at one of
the National Press Club's regular
Morning Newsmakers sessions.
He was standing at the head of a
long table when Brown, sitting a
few seats down on the side, leaped
up and yelled, "This is for the
blood you spilled."
He doused Kahane as well as
two persons sitting to his left.
Brown then dashed out a side door
where photographers and club
security people caught him.
credentials for the Jerusalem
Press and reports on articles in
the American media for Arab
newspapers. He left on his seat a
statement from an organization
called "Jews Against Zionism"
which ended with the statement,
"The blood which we spill here is
the blood of his many victims."
In his talk, Kahane predicted
that Israel's unity government
will not last a year because Labor
will not allow Yitzhak Shamir to
serve his full term as Premier
under the coalition agreement.
He said that police are escorting
the students the two-and-a-half
blocks between the dorms and the
building that houses the
classrooms, synagogue and dining
hall, "no matter the hour. We
have received very good protec-
tion from the police. They are ex-
tremely cooperative." Lesin add-
ed that Jewish militants who
showed up as self-appointed
patrols sent away by local police
authorities. A police command
truck is stationed at the yeshiva
while investigations continue.
Lesin said some changes have
been made in the students'
lifestyles. The dorm in which the
murder took place has been clos-
ed, Lesin said, and the students
are living in the three remaining
dorms. Their daily routines "are
more flexible, less rigid," he said.
The students, he said, are dealing
with the murder by having
therapy and discussion.
"WE'RE TRYING different
approaches. We are having them
immerse themselves in study or
other types or discussion to
distract them, such as guest lec-
turers. And then there is the
therapy. ^rVe have a team of
psychologists who are familiar
with religious people and know
how to deal with trauma," Lesin
said. "Rabbi Dr. Chaim Wakslak,
the rabbi of Young Israel in Long
Beach, has been extremely
helpful, above and beyond the call
of duty. Dr. Joseph Marmelstein,
a former student's parent who
lives in Far Rockaway, N.Y. has
also been coming in to talk to the
students," Lesin said.
He said all the school's students
and rabbis paid a shiva call to the
victim's parents at their Staten
Island, N.Y. home. According to
Lesin, only one student has not
returned to the yeshiva high
school since the murder, and two
new students have applied for en-
trance since the crime a week ago.
