FIGHTING BACK: A student (right) lifts his
arm as he attacks a mounted policeman who is
trying to hit him with his nightstick during a
police charge into a group of students in
downtown Jerusalem last week. The students
were demonstrating against the rising cost of
university tuition fees. At least 17 students
were arrested, and three people were injured.
'Unprecedented' Crime
Don't Belittle Genocide, Kohl Says
Chancellor Helmut Kohl, in
his strongest public state-
ment on the Nazi era, called
the crime of genocide
against the Jews a crime
"unprecedented in history,"
declaring "we should keep
alive the memory of the full
extent of that terrible past"
and "will oppose any at-
tempts to dismiss them
from our thoughts or belittle
The Chancellor's remarks, at
a luncheon Tuesday (Apr.
7) in honor of the visiting
President of Israel, Chaim
Herzog, was seen as a warning
Chancellor Kohl
against attempts by some
West German scholars to
equate the Nazi extermination
of Jews with other crimes in
modern history and by neo-
Nazis to rewrite history by
claiming the Holocaust never
"THE PERIOD of genocide
is the darkest chapter in Ger-
man history,'* Kohl said. "We
Germans have to live with the
terrible truth that in the days
of National Socialism the Jews
were subjected to unspeakable
suffering at the hands of the
Germans ... It is part of our
self-image that we keep alive
the memory..."

Angry Words
Shake Unity
Labor and Likud leaders
argued angrily last week
over whether their unity
coalition government should
be broken up because of
sharply divergent views on
an international conference
for Middle East Peace.
Much of the controversy
centered on Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres who was on a two-day
official visit to Spain where,
among other things, he sought
support for an international
conference. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir told reporters here
that Peres had exaggerated
the importance of his trip and
maintained that an interna-
tional conference would bring
"no salvation and certainly no
approach to Middle East peace
with King Juan Carlos of
Spain and Prime Minister
Felipe Gonzalez. But Shamir
noted that "Spain will not
even participate in such a con-
ference should it take place,
nor does it depend on Spain if
such a conference is convened

wanted to know whether non-

He apparently sought to cast
doubt that the Ukrainian-born

Go on Strike
About 80,000 university
students went on strike to pro-
test government plans to raise
tuition fees. Several thousand
massed outside the Prime
Minister's Office in what
began as a peaceful
demonstration and ended in a
violent clash with police.
The students said they are
prepared to pay the equivalent
of $800 a year.

peace and self-determination."
But he made clear that West
Germany and Israel differ on
approaches to Middle East
Bonn strongly supports an
international conference to
resolve the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, the Chancellor said. "We
welcome the fact that the idea
of an international negotiating
forum is gaining increasing ac-
ceptance in Israel. The posi-
tions are still far apart, but
there are encouraging signs,"
he said.
He also reiterated Bonn's
long-standing support for the
right of Palestinians to self-
HERZOG, responding, said
Israel's realities were all too
often poorly received. He cited
the participation of Israeli
Arabs in the political process,
the daily contacts between
Israelis and Egyptians and the
heavy traffic between Jordan
and Israel over the Jordan
River bridges.
Alluding to possible West
German softness on interna-
tional terrorism, Herzog warn-
ed: 'Terrorists are united.
Their victims are not. Ter-
rorists know no boundaries
nor do they respect sovereign-
ty. Israel will not compromise
with terrorists and will hit at
the sources of international
terrorism, of which the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion is a major element.'
Herzog and Kohl met
privately before the luncheon.
Their meeting was described
by both Israeli and German
sources as "very construc-
tive," though differences re-
main on the peace issue and
on possible West German arms
sales to Arab countries still
technically in a state of war
with Israel.

or not."
Shamir added that "There is
great exaggeration in presen-
ting the entire trip (by Peres)
as if it were intended for this
issue." Last Saturday night
(Apr. 4), before Peres depar-
ture for Madrid, Shamir startl-
ed observers here by stating
publicly that he hoped the
Foreign Minister would "not
succeed" in his mission.
Likud Minister-Without-
Portfolio Moshe Arens accused
Peres of making his own
foreign policy. "He should
realize that under our system
of government, ministers must
act in accordance with govern-
ment policies," Arens said.
Laborite Minister Ezer
Weizman, who was acting
Foreign Minister in Peres'
absence, said the unity govern-
ment should dissolve itself im-
mediately because of irrecon-
cilable differences between its
partners and seek a new man-
date from the electorate.
"HOW MUCH longer
should we go on with the main
parties following divergent
paths on the question of peace
in the Middle East?" Weizman
asked at a meeting with
reporters in Nazareth. But
Finance Minister Moshe
Nissim of Likud told Israel
Radio that the differences over
an international conference
were not sufficient reason to
break up the government.

Israel's S. Africa Ties
Come Under U.S. Jewish Scrutiny
Friday, April 24, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
NEW YORK American
Jewish leaders have begun
to grapple with the uncom-
fortable issue of Israel's
military trade with South
Africa, a subject obscured
by strict secrecy, distortion
by Israel's enemies and by
the minuscule amount of
factual information actually
Few governments like to
discuss their military exchange
with the racist regime of South
Africa despite evidence that
military exchanges with Western
countries continue on some levels
while tapering off in past months.
Israel is no different. With the
government facing intense
pressure from the U.S. Congress
and from American Jews to cease
military trade with South Africa,
there is little said publicly on the
AT LEAST part of the
American Jewish leadership has
taken an active role in the anti-
apartheid movement in this coun-
try, on the picket lines and in
divestment campaigns. Some
even risked arrest for civil disobe-
dience at South African installa-
tions throughout the country. But
many Jewish leaders have chosen
to remain silent or at least
discreet about Israel's military
trade with South Africa.
"The inconsistency is troubling
American Jews," Allan Kagedan,
an American Jewish Committee
policy analyst said. "On the one
hand, they are anti-apartheid
morally. On the other hand, they
support Israel who sells arms to
South Africa. But no one is willing
to publicly defend Israel arms
sales to South Africa."
A sampling by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency of American
Jewish leadership revealed a real
reluctance to discuss openly
and sometimes on the record
what they know of Israel's
military trade with South Africa.
But the same leaders indicated
that they have told the Israeli of-
ficials privately that they should
not ignore the growing anti-
apartheid sentiment in the
American public and Congress
and should not lag too far behind
the pro-sanction mood of Western
AMERICAN Jewish leaders
emphasized the privacy of Israel's
security, survival and sovereignty
to decide with whom and what it
trades. On the other hand, the
same leaders said they feel it is in-
cumbent upon them to let Israel
know that its South African policy
is affecting them negatively in
their efforts to deal with other
domestic and foreign issues.
A pervasive argument by some
Jewish leaders agaunst the trade
is that Israel's military relations
with South Africa are increasingly
straining Jewish-Black relations
in this country and providing an
excellent excuse for black African
countries not to resume relations
with Israel.
Elan Steinberg, World Jewish
Congress executive director, said
although the military trade has
been distorted, it has affected at-
titudes in the anti-apartheid com-
munity. "There is a perception
that Jews and Israel are not in the
forefront of anti-apartheid," he
The distortion of and dispropor-
tionate attention focuased on
Israel's trade with South Africa
was one of the great propaganda
coups of Israel's enemies in the
past decade. American Jewish of-
ficials are sensitive to the singling
out of Israel for criticism when
other Western, Arab and Soviet-
bloc countries provide far more
valuable and critical support for
the South African regime.
ON APRIL 1, the State Depart-
ment is scheduled to submit a
report to the President containing
an account of countries receiving
U.S. foreign aid which are supply-
ing military materiel to South
Africa. Countries which continue
the military exchanges could risk
forfeiting their U.S. foreign aid,
in Israel's case $1.8 billion. One
Israeli expert on South Africa,
who asked not to be identifeid,
said the Congressional legislation
has turned Israel's military rela-
tions with South Africa from a
moral issue to a realpolitik issue.
Malcolm Hoenlien, executive
director of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, was among
other officials who said they are
concerned that this legislation has
singled out Israel and one or two
other countries and would effec-
tively overlook the major trading
partners of South Africa who are
also U.S. Allies.
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum,
AJCommittee director of interna-
tional affairs, said, "I hope the
report to the President will give
an overview which will talk about
the UK, Soviet Union, Japan and
others to keep it in perspective.
Israel is not the primary culprit in
sustaining South Africa."
Kagedan said the legislation is un-
fair because it would not poten-
tially hurt 20 other countries
which sell much more to South
KAGEDAN, Tanenbaum and
others said they believe a large
volume of weapons is flowing
from the West to South Africa
despite the mostly "symbolic'
Western arms embargo. "The
same standard should apply to
Israel as everyone else, no more,
no less," Tanenbaum said.
Kagedan said, "There is a sense
on the part of Israelis that
Western nations are immensely
hypocritical on sanctions."
Within Israel, the policy on
military trade with South Africa
has been under review for about
six months. Although a small
group of intellectuals headed by
Yossi Beilin (Labor), political
director general of the Foreign
Ministry, argue the trade is
counterproductive foreign policy,
the Israeli expert said the majori-
ty still advocates continuing the
military trade.
The advocates of trade argue
that it brings in much needed
foreign capital and provides
valuable research and develop-
ment opoortunities for Israel.
Many also argue tha severing rela-
tions with Pretoria could threaten
the security of South Africa's
119,000 Jews.
There are also reports that
South Africa has threatened to
reveal the details of the coopera-
tion if Israel severs relations,
"there is tremendous resentment
in Israel over what is seen as at-
tempts to blackmail and
manipulate Israel South
Africa revels in pointing out the
similarities between itself and
Israel," the Israeli expert said.
KAGEDAN said, "The South
African government has an in-
terest in projecting itself
associated with Israel. It helps
(Prime Minister Pieter Willem)
Botha to appear to the U.S. as
another Israel."
One expert said the official
military transfers from Israel to
South Africa are now virtually
non-existent. But according to
some sources, private arms
dealers have taken up the slack of
arms sales and some forms of
military trade continue. Israel's
stated position is that it is adher-
ing to the 1977 United Nations
arms embargo. Although press
reports and information from
trade monitoring agencies on the
military exchanges have never
been confirmed by Israel and are
difficult to corroborate, experts
interviewed by the JTA said there
are four major areas of military
exchanges between the two

Exchanges of military hard-
ware, technologies, electronic
surveillance systems and radar. In
March 1985, the Washington Post
reported that South Africa bought
up to 35 percent of Israel's $1
billion per year arms exports.
Israelis training South
Africans were observed and
reported. One expert said there is
"a fair amount of evidence to bear
this out, especially in the early
R and D, joint development of
military technologies such as a
sophisticated mid-air refueling
system. Some observers note that
the South African Cheetah fighter

Nuclear technology and
cooperative research. These ex-
changes have been reported on
frequently but never confirmed.
THE ISRAELI expert said
there is clearly a dramatic reduc-
tion of the Israel-South Africa
conventional arms trade in the
past decade as a result of signifi-
cant development of South
Africa's domestic arms industry
and the availability of new
markets to the Israelis.
THE MOST outspoken op-
ponents of the military trade in
the American Jewish community
come from the New Jewish Agen-
da (NJA). In a draft of a position
paper, Agenda attributed the
trade relationship to Israel's
dependence on military exports
and the military industrial com-
plex for sources of foreign income.
By 1981, Agenda noted, Israel's
arms exports rose to $1.3 billion
or 40 percent of Intel's exports.
This reliance, according to Agen-
da, partners Israel with
repressive regimes around the
But the Agenda paper also
stated repeatedly that Israel
should not be singled out for
criticism among South Africa's
other major trading partners.
Rabbi Balfour Brickner, vice
president of the American Israel
Civil Liberties Coalition and
spiritual leader of the Stephen
Wise Free Synagogue in New
York, said the trade with South
Africa is "a source of embarrass-
ment for American Jews which is
causing them to silently walk
away from their heretofore un-
qualified support for Israel."
Israel should have halted the
military exchanges long ago,
Brickner said. But pressure from
American Jews was not enough.
Only pressure from Congress will
instigate a change in Israel's
South Africa policy, he said.

'Never Give Up,'
Shultz Says At Seder
At a Seder with refuseniks in Moscow on
Monday, wearing a white yarmulke,
Secretary of State Shultz encouraged Rus-
sian Jews that they should "never give up,
never give up" in their quest for emigration
to freedom. The encouragement is welcome,
but there can be little hope in it all by itself.
Yes, Mr. Shultz did tackle the dissident
issue with Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze just as soon as the two men
sat down to talk. But no one would imagine
that it was central to their discucssion.
A lot of things peripheral to whether or
not Jews in significant numbers will be per-
mitted to leave the Soviet Union are, from
an outsider's point of view, far more impor-
tant. If the United States and the Soviet
Union can come to an understanding on
them first, then it is also possible that a
significantly large Jewish exodus will follow.
Arms Control Priority
But it does not work the other way
around. Failure to solve the other issues
now separating Washington and Moscow
will mean that no such exodus is likely to oc-
cur at all.
For one thing, there is arms control. For
example, the Soviets have long held an ad-
vantage in short-range missiles those
missiles capable of operation within a 300 to
600-mile range. In fact, the United States
has no such arsenal at all.
Even if Shultz and Gorbachev were able to
arrive at a meeting of minds on all other
aspects of the arms race, which is in itself
highly unlikely, it can not be expected that
the United States would give in to the
Soviets that their advantage in short-range
missiles be frozen, for it is precisely these
missiles that would be critical in the defense
of Europe given a final understanding on the
Reagan Administration's insistence on the
zero option plan.
This is, however, only one consideration
that will continue as a sticking point
whether or not Mr. Shultz and Mr. Shevard-
nadze arrive at same mutually agreeable
arms control understanding in their talks.
The other is the highly-charged American
outrage over the bugging of the U.S. Em-
bassy in Moscow. The amount of emotion in-
vested in this outrage is embarrassing to
anyone who knows anything about the es-
pionage practices common to the nations of
the world.
Clearly, the Reagan Administration has
manufactured the incident in order to push
the Iran-contra story off the front pages.
But absurd or not, our problems with the
Soviets in their mania for secrecy outdo
even Mr. Reagan's mania in this, and the
anger over what has been discovered at the
U.S. Embassy not only Russian bugging
devices but charges of espionage against
U.S. Marines stationed there to protect it
may well break the back of Mr. Shultz's
frustration in the arms control standoff and
result in another failed meeting. Given such
an agenda, it would be a fantasy to expect
concomitant Soviet announcements about
Jewish emigration in massive numbers.
Israel's Mixed Signals
These considerations apart, there is Israel
itself. Last week in Madrid, Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres was told by the
Spanish Foreign Minister that it is impossi-
ble for Spain to know just where Israel
stands on peace in the Middle East, par-
ticularly an international conference that
would include Israel, the Arabs except for
the PLO, just which ones, no one says and
the five permanent members of the United
Nations Security Council.
On Peres' way to Madrid, Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir said he hoped Peres would
fail, at the same time declaring that Gaza
and the West Bank would remain Israeli ter-
ritory "forever."
Abroad, Peres says he's for a conference.
At home, he loads his stand with conditions.
This week, it seems as if the Unity Govern-
ment coalition is doomed. Both Labor
(Peres) and Likud (Shamir) are predicting
victory at the polls in the event of an early
national election. No wonder the Spanish
diplomat was confused.
But it is essential that the confusion be
cleared up if sense is to be made of Israeli
policy in the future. For an international
conference would spell the participation of
China and the Soviet Union. Even Mr. Peres
vows that one of his conditions for such a
conference would be the resumption of
diplomatic relations with the Soviets and the
establishment for the first time of such rela-
tions with the Chinese, who have never in
the past recognized Israel.
Should Israel refuse such a conference, as
Mr. Shamir threatens, then is it conceivable
that a solid Jewish emigration from the
Soviet Union would resume forthwith, the
U.S.-Soviet struggle on the arms issue
apart? Mr. Shultz's plea to the refuseniks at
their Seder on Monday to "never give up,
never give up," is noble indeed. But the suc-
cessful resolution of so many seemingly
unrelated questions is necessary well before
anybody can even begin to consider the odds
on the outcome of his entreaty that hope for
Soviet Jewry's future must remain
Examining Markets
Weapons Needs Created An Industry
If you are building a trade
relationship in the 1980's, you
have to examine available
markets. And if you have any
sense of what is going on in the
world at all, you have to con-
clude that the only way truly
to build a trade business is to
examine the international
market opportunities.
So, if you are a nation as op-
posed to an individual, you
have to take it one step fur-
ther. For nations, unlike in-
dividuals, are possessed of cer-
tain inventories the day they
go in business.
THEY HAVE natural
resources, most of which will
have to be developed. There
are certain skills indiginous to
their populace which must be
exploited. To deviate from this
will bring ruin to a country.
When the United States
began to emerge as a nation, it
found itself able to feed the
populace through mostly sub-
sistance farming. The set-
tlements had begun in the
east, and the soil and water
were able to produce lush
crops in Pennsylvania, parts of
New England and the nor-
thern rim of the south.
It was not until the push
west, where the lands of the
midwest were tamed, that
America could become a farm-
to-market nation and eventual-
ly a world provider of food.
Food, agriculture for export
remains our number one
staple. No one can feed the
world like the United States.
been slower to develop their
natural resources and find
markets for them. The
western powers showed the
Arabs what wealth lay under
their sand, and the seeds of
OPEC were sown. Most na-
tions are not that lucky. They
do not have vast reserves of a
product that simply has to be
sucked out of the ground to
make them wealthy.
The nations of Africa and
Asia, those with the great
natural resources, have been
mercilessly exploited by the
west. Their lands have been
raped, they have been forced
to turn their land mass to ex-
port cash crops instead of
developing it to feed their own.
When the colonial powers left,
they left behind a legacy of
poverty, untrained people and
the blueprint for starvation.
Israel has no natural
resources. No coal, no oil, no
vast land areas. The land of
Israel had been decimated by
centuries of misuse by a tran-
sient population with no feel
for the land or its origin, and
with no national zeal to create.
None of that. None until, of
course, the Jewish people
returned to the land.
THEN THE nationalistic
zeal came on in a rush,
agitated from outside and
blown into reality by a world
ready to deny the Jewish peo-
ple their homeland once again.
But the Jewish people of the
new-born state had other
ideas. They were to take their
land and develop it into a
viable place to live, to cultivate
and eventually to create world
For natural resources, they
had the brains of their people.
So, from this they developed
agricultural techniques which
caused the desert to bloom.
They created an export
market in fruits, flowers and
vegetables that does business
in Europe against land and
food five times the abundance
of the tiny nation.
In High-Tech, they have
created machines and
technology that staggers the
imagination. They have
developed ideas for their own
survival and for export.
IN THIS time, they have
had to fight a war on an
average of every eight years.
They have won them all. It
hasn't been easy. Early on, the
world decided that they would
not sell Israel the weapons so
vital to its defense against the
hostile neighbors who kept
fomenting these wars.
Unable to obtain the needed
merchandise of war, the dead-
ly products that would allow
her to continue to live, Israel
did what she had done with her
land. It created its own in-
dustry. It developed a group of
weapons specifically designed
for the warfare into which it
was forced.
These were weapons that
were light and portable, so
that they could be moved easi-
ly to wherever they were to be
threatened. Simple weapons,
so that a basically civilian
reserve force could operate
them on little training.
Weapons with great durabili-
ty, because it would not have
the time or the money to
stockpile vast amounts of
ISRAEL HAS survived. The
world has taken note. And
while much of the heavy duty
weaponry comes from the
United States most of it im-
proved by Israel after its ar-
rival much of it continues to
be produced domestically. The
weapons and systems are good
ones among the best in the
world. A world which loves
arms. A world which has an
absolutely insatiable appetite
for more and better weapons.
So, into this arena, this in-
credible international
marketplace, Israel has
jumped with both feet. It has
simply followed the lead of all
nations. It has examined possi-
ble markets for its $oods and
ships that which will sell to
those who would buy. It did
not create the arms business.
It did not even get into it
necessarily by choice. But
there it is.

The Priests Take Up Their
The priests entered upon their
office on the eighth day, which
marked the completion of their
consecration. The whole con-
gregation stood in the Court
before the altar and Aaron offered
up sacrifices for himself and his
four sons, and then on behalf of
the people. After blessing the
assembly he and Moses entered
the Tabernacle and, on their
return, portions of the sacrifice
still on the altar were consumed
by Divine fire, and the people fell
on their faces in worship before
the L-rd.
Nadab and Abihu
Nadab and Abihu, Aaron's
eldest sons, offered up incense on
unconsecrated fire not taken from
the altar. Such an offense by
priests who were to set an exam-
ple to the people was unpar-
donable and they were punished
by instant death, being consumed
'by fire which came from before
the L-rd.' Aaron was overwhelm-
ed with grief but Moses explained
to the bereaved father that the
priest carried a special respon-
sibility to maintain the high stan-
dard of sanctity demanded of him
by G-d. To prevent the priests
becoming ritually defiled by
touching the bodies and thus be-
ing unable to officiate in the
Tabernacle, Aaron's cousins,
Michael and Elzaphan. who werp
not priests, were told to bury the
dead. Furthermore, Aaron and his
two remaining sons, Eleazar and
Ithamar, were instructed not to
show any signs of mourning,
thereby demonstrating their sub-
mission to G-d*s will. The priests
were also warned not to drink any
strong liquor before discharging
their duties in the Sanctuary or in-
structing the people.
Aaron and his sons had
neglected to eat their share of the
sin-offering offered on behalf of
the people, and the sacrifice had
been completely burned. This was
contrary to the command that a
certain portion of the offering was
to be eaten by them within the
Sanctuary. In reply to Moses'
rebuke, Aaron offered the excuse
that the priests had brought their
own sin and burnt-offerings to
secure atonement for themselves.
In view of this, as well as the
calamity which had befallen him,
he did not think it would have
been right to partake of the peo-
ple's sin-offering. Moses was
placated by the answer.
Dietary Laws
Purity and holiness were to be
the regulating principles govern-
ing everyday life. Although man
was permitted to feed on the flesh
of animals, he was restricted in his
choice by abstaining from food
which G-d declared to be impure
and abominable. Among
quadrupeds only animals which
completely divided the hoof and
chewed the cud could be eaten (ex-
cluding therefore such species as
Jordan Minister Repeats Belief
In Int'l. Confab Including UN
Jordan's Prime Minister Zeid
Rifai stressed here that Jordan
still views an international
conference that includes the
five permanent members of
the United Nations Security
Council as a means to
negotiate Middle East peace.
"We're not talking about
peace between Jordan and
Israel," Rifai said after he and
Foreign Minister Taher Masri
met with Secretary of State
George Shultz at the State
Department last week. "We're

settlement of the Arab-Israeli
HE SAID this includes the
problem of the Golan Heights
with Syria, southern Lebanon
and the Palestinian problem
"which is at the core of the
Middle East conflict."
Rifai was apparently giving
a different explanation for Jor-
dan's need for a peace con-
ference than that stated by
King Hussein since last year
when he said on a visit to
Washington that he wanted an
international conference as an
"umbrella" for negotiations
with Israel.
Shultz indicated, as he did
when he met with Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir here
last month, that the U.S. is
considering an international
conference if it would lead to
direct negotiations. He stress-
ed that it is up to the parties
themselves to agree on the
method of negotiations.
Shultz praised King Hussein
for his efforts to improve the
economic situation in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. He said
the U.S. is seeking a way to
provide an extra $10-$30
million for this effort.

the prohibition extended to any
bird of prey (the criteria by which
a clean bird may be distinguished

were expounded by the Rabbis.
Only birds that are traditionally
known to be 'clean' are permitted

The Ark is Brought To
King David makes ar-
rangements to transfer the ark
from the house of Abinadab in
Baale-judah to the new capital,
Jerusalem. Uzzah and Ahio,
Abinadab's sons, drive the cart on
which the ark is placed whilst
David and the people follow with
music and dancing. The oxen
stumble and Uzzah touches the
ark to steady it (only the priests
were privileged to handle the ark,
and G-d punishes him by instant
death (compare the incident of
Nadab and Abihu). After remain-
ing in the house of Obededom for
three months the ark, this time
correctly, is borne on the Levites'
shoulders and David celebrates
the occasion by dancing before the
L-rd. His wife Michal accuses him
of unseemly conduct but the king
maintains that there is nothing
degrading in joyfully expressing
thanks to G-d..
Through Nathan the prophet
G-d informs David that his wish to
build a Temple cannot be granted,
but the Davidic dynasty would be
firmly established and his son, yet
to be born, would build His House.

Eban Raps Israeli Charges
That U.S. Jews Are Fearful
Abba Eban, chairman of the
Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee, sharply
criticized last week charges
made recently in Israel that
American Jewish leaders
reacted fearfully to the case of
Jonathan Pollard, an
American Jew sentenced to
life imprisonment for spying
for Israel.
He said that American Jews
are entitled to differ with
Israel, charging that the critics
of American Jewry hurled
"condescending platitudes"
without really knowing or
understanding the American
Jewish community.
Eban, who is also the chair-
man of the special intelligence
subcommittee investigating
Israel's role in the Pollard af-
fair, spoke at the Pierre Hotel
where he was awarded the
1987 International Shazar
Prize of the Israel Historical
not mention the Pollard affair.
But his remarks were clearly
aimed at Shlomo Avineri, a
distinguished Israeli scholar
and academician, who trig-
gered controversy last month
when he charged that
American Jewish leaders
displayed a galut mentality in
their reaction to the Pollard
case. Furthermore, Avineri ac-
cused the American Jewish
leaders of "cringing" for fear
of charges of dual loyalty,
thereby belying "the conven-
tional wisdom of American
Jewry feeling free, secure and
unmolested in an open
pluralistic society."
"Do not believe anything of
it," Eban told the more than
300 guests attending the af-
fair. "Everybody knows it is
not true .. ."he exclaimed. To
begin with, Eban said, the
analogy between American
Jewry and any other galut is
wrong, because there is no
same Jewry around the globe.
"There is American Jewry,
French Jewry, or Moroccan
Jewry, and each is different,"
he observed.
Claiming that "American
Jewry deserves the dignity of
being studied" by its Israeli ac-
cusers, the veteran diplomat,
who served as Israel's Am-
bassador to the U.S. and the
UN, said that Israel and the
American Jewish community
"are the two superpowers of
world Jewry."
AMERICAN Jews "have
the right to their opinions"
and they do not have to be
"docile" toward the Israelis,
Eban said. "We ought not say
to you, give us your money and
don't worry us with your
Turning briefly to other
issues, Eban said that Israel,
entering the fifth decade of its
independent life, no longer
faces the danger of physical
destruction. But he said
Israelis sould be "inspired by
history," not "bewitched" by
it, as many were in the wake of
the military victory in the Six-
Day War in 1967. He called for
a sense of "proportion and
restraint" to reach a realistic
view of Israel's position and
alternatives in the Mideast.
Eban received the Interna-
tional Shazar Prize, named
after the late Israeli President
Zalman Shazar, for his ac-
claimed book and television
series, "Heritage: Civilization
and the Jews." The award was
presented to him by Nobel
Laureate Eli Wiesel, and Prof.
Salo Baron, the distinguished
Jewish scholar anc Historian.

however, officials stressed
that every Jew allowed to
leave the Soviet Union is an

that changes in emigration
policy may be on the way, the
officials cautioned that the
reports which surfaced in New
York Sunday and Monday
have not been confirmed.
President Chaim Herzog,
prior to leaving on an official
visit to Switzerland and West
Germany, was optimistic. He
said reports from Moscow,
together with other indica-
tions, pointed to a real change
in Soviet attitude for which
Israel should be prepared.
A spokesman for Premier
Yitzhak Shamir flatly rejected
suggestions of a connection
between Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev's apparent new
policies and Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres' support for an interna-
tional conference on Middle
East peace in which the Soviet
Union would participate.
"Definitely not," the
spokesman said, adding that
the Premier remains
unalterably opposed to an in-
ternational conference.

Ties 'Never Closer'
Says Rosenne on Eve of U.S. Exit
Meir Rosenne, who in
June will return to Israel
after four years as Am-
bassador to the United
States, maintained last
week that relations between
Israel and the U.S. "have
never been closer" despite
the Pollard spy case.
The discovery that Jonathan
Pollard, a civilian Navy in-
telligence analyst, was spying
for Israel will not have a "long-
lasting effect" on relations,
Rosenne said in response to
questions at a luncheon of the
Overseas Writers, an
organization of diplomatic
HOWEVER, he stressed
this will be so only if those in-
volved in the espionage opera-
tion are uncovered and the
U.S. is convinced that the
operation was unauthorized.
Rosenne noted that 15 mon-
ths ago, when Pollard was ar-
rested, many were not con-
vinced that it was unauthoriz-
ed, but now everyone knows
that "unauthorized operations
may take place sometimes."
This was an apparent
reference to the Iran-Contra
The Ambassador said that
Israel's cooperation with the
U.S. in the Pollard case has
been "unprecedented." In
discussing the close relations
between the U.S. and Israel,
Rosenne said it was a two-way
street. He noted that while
Israel receives a great deal of
financial aid from the U.S.
$3 billion in grants for
economic and military aid this
year the U.S. knows Israel
is a reliable ally which has pro-
vided it with much technical in-
formation from captured
Soviet equipment over the
AT THE same time, "there
can be no identity of views on
foreign policy between Israel
and the United States,"
Rosenne stressed. He explain-
ed that the U.S. is a global
power while Israel is a small
country that since its existence
has been surrounded by coun-
tries that want to destroy it as
well as constant acts of ter-
rorism against Israelis at home
and abroad.
The envoy, who plans to
return to Jerusalem for
another post with the Foreign
Ministry, also discussed the
peace process, Soviet Jewry
and relations with the USSR,
South Africa and Israel's rela-
tions with American Jews.
"We are very much in-
terested to sign a peace treaty
with all the Arab countries,
Rosenne said. "We are ready
to start negotiations with any
Arab country that is ready to
do likewise.' He added that
anytime Jordan is ready to
negotiate, so is Israel "without
any preconditions."
But when he was asked
about Jordan's demands for an
international conference,
Rosenne said he could not
discuss this since the Israeli
unity government is divided
about this issue.
ASKED A, JUT President
Carter's statement after his
recent meeting with Syrian
President Hafez Assad that
Syria is ready to negotiate
with Israel through an interna-
tional conference, Rosenne
pointed to the memoirs of
former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger.
He noted that Kissinger
reported that he had a long
discussion with Assad in 1974
in which they agreed about
everything for a Geneva con-
ference. But when Kissinger
asked Assad what date he
preferred, Assad said it did not
matter, since he would not
Rosenne also reiterated the
Israeli position that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion cannot participate in any
peace negotiations.
ASKED FOR his personal
views, Rosenne said the Camp
David Accords, signed in 1978,
"can be the basis" for advanc-
ing the peace process because
it provides for negotiations
between Israel, Egypt, Jordan
and Palestinians to negotiate
"the future status of the
He said if the accords had
not been condemned by all the
Arab countries the five-year
autonomy period for the West
Bank and Gaza would now be
over, as well as the period,
three years after autonomy
started in which the negotia-
tions were to have begun.
Rosenne, who was Am-
bassador to France before
coming to Washington, said
part of the blame for this
failure is due to the West
European countries which con-
demned the Camp David
ed the U.S. for its efforts in
the peace process but stressed
that "the United States cannot
replace any Arab state in the
peace process." He said "any
attempt to replace the parties
will be counterproductive."
Ambassador Rosenne
He noted that the major dif-
ferences between Israel and
the U.S. have arisen when
there has been a peace pro-
posal that did not include the
Arabs as one of the
Rosenne stressed that Israel
wants the U.S. to have good
relations with the Arab coun-
tries, but not to supply them
with weapons. "Israel is op-
posed to any sale of weapons
to any country that is in a state
of war with Israel," he said.
On Israel's relations with the
Soviet Union, Rosenne would
only say that a Soviet delega-
tion is expected in Israel soon
and "we hope that an Israeli
delegation will be able to go to
the Soviet Union in the
HE SAID that it was still
unclear whether there has
been any change in Soviet
emigration policies. He said
there are 380,000 Jews, in-
cluding 11,000 multiple
refuseniks, who have applied
to leave the USSR.
On South Africa, Rosenne
stressed that Israel has always
opposed apartheid. He said
Israel accepted the 1977 UN
Security Council resolution
barring any arms sales to
South Africa, but like other
countries interpreted this to
mean existing contracts would
be honored.
He added that Israel has a
special obligation to the
120,000 Jews in South Africa,
who have always supported
Israel. He noted that many
South African Jews have been
jailed in the struggle against
Rosenne said that the "link"
between Israel and Jews in the
U.S. and elsewhere is firm. He
said American Jews have a
right to criticize Israel, but on-
ly Israel is responsible for its
own security.

Incidents Between Blacks,
Hasidim Fire Brooklyn Tension
Friday, April 24, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 9
Police in the Crown Heights
section of Brooklyn "are doing
their utmost to ensure that it
will be a comfortable, peaceful
summer" following tensions
which have been heightened
there in recent weeks over in-
cidents between blacks and
Hasidim, according to a police
spokesman who spoke to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
following a march Saturday by
black protesters through the
Crown Heights neighborhood.
Problems in Crown Heights
reached a crescendo because of
a firebombing Feb. 26 of a
black woman's house in the
neighborhood, in which a
witness claimed to have seen
two white men dressed in what
looked like Hasidic garb flee-
ing the scene. The woman
whose home was firebombed
claimed to have heard them
say, "Burn, burn, burn,"
before allegedly vanishing into
the dormitory of a nearby
POLICE, the spokesman
said, are being educated there
on the "ethnic awareness of
both groups," and there is con-
stant communication between
the police community affairs
department and community
clergy and political leaders of
Crown Heights, he said.
The local clergy informed
their congregants not to par-
ticipate in Saturday's march,
the spokesman said. The local
Hasidic leaders cooperated
with the police in ensuring that
the masses of Hasidim would
not be lined up along the route
of the demonstration.
The police were notified of
plans for the march over two
weeks ago at a church meeting
called by a local black political
figure, according to the police
the Brooklyn neighborhood
that is home to the world head-
quarters of the Chabad
Lubavitch movement rebutted
on Sunday recent media ac-
counts of ethnic tensions in
their community, which focus-
ed on a march on Saturday
afternoon of blacks through
the streets of the ethnically
mixed neighborhood.
Although the number of pro-
testers in Saturday's march
was estimated to be between
400-500, police said the
number varied between 200
and 500 depending on the time
of the march. One police
spokesman said it was difficult
to give an exact number of
those joining the protesters, as
it kept changing as the mar-
chers swung to different
streets and passersby or
residents of the houses along
the route joined them or left.
The spokesman in the police
community affairs department
said there is definitely tension
in the area on both sides, ad-
ding that "the complaints that
we get in the police depart-
ment are exactly the same
from both sides of the fence."
Crown Heights is a racially,
ethnically mixed neighborhood
where it is estimated that
presently about only 10 per-
cent of the neighborhood is
Jewish. The Lubavitcher
Hasidim have lived in the
neighborhood since the early

and a police helicopter hovered
slowly above, as the
demonstrators staged a noisy
but peaceful march Saturday
in response to what they claim
is police bias toward the
Jewish community.
Chanting "No Justice, No
Peace!" the demonstrators
drew attention to a private
security patrol run by the
Crown Heights Jewish Com-
munity Council, as well as to
the firebombing, but enlarged
their claims to embrace a host
of issues in the torn Brooklyn
community. Among the
placards carried was a banner
saying "We Lost, We Lost,
We Lost," referring to the
deaths of several black and
Hispanic individuals killed in
what they claim are incidents
of police aggression.
THE JEWISH community,
on the other hand, has pro-
tested the deaths of two
Hasidim in what appears to
have been ethnically-
motivated incidents.
Black anger has been
directed at the private security
force run by the Lubavitch
community, which blacks claim
is a vigilante group. It is com-
posed of only Hasidic
members, "Lubavitch-paid,
not trained by police, and per-
form to the best of their abili-
ty, sometimes crossing over
what might be called the valid
legalities," the police
spokesman said.
"They've made arrests, held
people at times," the
spokesman said, adding that
"some have been valid, some
have been inappropriate. In
this precinct, we have an
organized civilian patrol
through the police depart-
ment. We've urged the Hasidic
patrol to sign up with the
police department and patrol
their own area. They'd have
radio contact with the police.
A handful has signed up with
the police," he said, "but the
majority are independent.
They communicate within
their own group, telling a resi-
dent to call police emergency
when necessary. Nobody ad-
mits to being armed."
