Bush lb Ike WhiteHouse 'Bully Pulpit'
To Press For Israeli Peace
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir will be asked during a U.S. visit next month to "move
forward" toward a Middle East peace, President Bush told the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith recently.
Speaking to the group's international conference, Bush said he
will ask Shamir to "move forward in some way toward the peace
that everybody here really aspires for."
Bush said he told Foreign Minister Moshe Arens that Israel is
a "strategic ally and a lasting friend."
Bush also discussed his unusual meeting at the White House
with Rachamim Elazar, an Ethiopian Jew now living in Israel.
Bush said Elazar gave a "plea from the heart to continue the
flow of the people there who are still not able to join their people
in Israel."
Bush has been creditpd with playing a key role in arranging
the "Operation Moses" secret flights to rescue Ethiopian Jews.
The meeting was the second in less than a week between Bush
and a U.S. Jewish group. He also met with the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, in the first
of a series of regular meetings.
Referring to ADL's national director, who participated in
meeting, Bush said, "I told Abe Foxman here, 'Well, we're
practically going steady.' "
The Bush administration appears to have embarked on an
open-door policy with Jewish groups. By contrast, the Confer-
ence of Presidents seldom met with President Reagan, though
its leaders had frequent meetings with Reagan's secretary of
state, George Shultz.
Bush, who referred to the conference as the "organization of
presidents," said he looks forward to similar dialogues in the
The ADL group, meeting in the Old Executive Office building,
also heard from Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, Secretary
of Housing and Urban Development Jack Kemp and White
House Chief of Staff John Sununu.
Bush's speech was largely devoted to his shared concern with
ADL to protect the "sacred right of religious freedom."
"There is no greater contribution that one organization can
make to the nation," Bush asserted. Religious freedom "can
never be taken for granted," he added, urging ADL to
"zealously" continue its work.
The president noted that ADL's annual report on anti-Semitic
incidents in the United States reported an increase during 1988.
"We must condemn all attacks on the Jewish religion, the
Jewish heritage, clearly, unequivocally and without exception,"
he said. "This nation must stand for tolerance, pluralism and a
healthy respect for the rights of all minorities.'
Bush pledged to use the "bully pulpit" of the White House to
speak out "for what is just and what is right."
Arafat Offer
Termed 'Trickery'
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir had little but contempt for
Yasir Arafat's declaration that
he is ready to go to Jerusalem,
with Arab world consent, to
talk peace.
. "Trickery" and "public rela-
tions stunt" were some of the
epithets used by Shamir to
dismiss the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chairman's
statements, which were made
in a weekend interview with
the Italian newspaper La
Shamir issued his reaction
during a tour of northern vil-
Shamir said it was not seri-
ous to compare Arafat's latest
proclamation to the late Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat s
historic visit to Jerusalem in
November 1977. "Sadat
intended peace," Shamir
explained, "while this man,
this chief murderer, intends
not peace but deception."
Shamir referred to the cur-
rent spate of attempted border
infiltrations from Lebanon as
evidence of the Palestinian ter-
ror group's determination to
thwart any advance toward a
negotiated solution.
He said that as hard as the
terrorists try to infiltrate, the
Israel Defense Force will try
even harder and with greater
perseverance to keep them

Arens Denies Pressure
To Negotiate With PLO
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens denied Tuesday
that anyone in the Bush ad-
ministration had suggested
this week that Israel negotiate
with the Palestine Liberation
He also said that no U.S.
official had proposed a series
of steps to ease tensions in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
contrary to media reports that
such suggestions would be con-
Arens said that in his meet-
ings with administration offi-
cials Monday, he did not dwell
on Israel's opposition to the
U.S. dialogue with the PLO,
since the Israeli position that
such talks are "counterproduc-
tive" is well known.
The Israeli foreign minister
had a nearly two-hour meeting
Monday with Secretary of
State James Baker, followed
by shorter meetings with Pres-
ident Bush, Vice President
Dan Quayle and Brent Scow-
croft, the national security
adviser. He said none had sug-
gested Israel consider negoti-
ating with the PLO.
However, Baker told a con-
fressional subcommittee Tues-
ay that if advancing the peace
process "takes talks with the
PLO, we should not rule that
Arens had no comment when
asked about this during his
address to a luncheon spon-
sored by the Washington Insti-
tute for Near East policy.
But he made clear in his
address that the PLO cannot
be a participant in efforts to
bring about a Middle East
peace settlement.
He said the only reason
Palestinians in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip say that the
PLO is their representative is
that to do otherwise risks
being killed.
Arens said to grant the PLO
such status would also mark
the "beginning of the end" of
Jordan and its rulers and
would further the PLO's
efforts to subvert Israeli
The foreign minister
stressed that the negotiators
for a peace settlement should
be Jordan, the Palestinians liv-
ing in the territories and possi-
bly a third Arab country now
at war with Israel. He did not
name which on:;.
When a reporter asked for
Arens' comments on an asser-
tion, made last week by a
major Israeli think tank, that
Israel cannot continue to
refuse to talk to the PLO, he
replied, "There is no shortage
of Israelis who think they
know what should be done."
Arens was in Washington to
lay the groundwork for Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
visit to Washington in April
and to present Israel's views
on the peace process as the
Bush administration formu-
lates its own Middle East pol-
But as Arens arrived in
Washington, the State Depart-
ment let it be known that it
plans to ask both Israel and the
PLO to take confidence-build-
ing steps that could foster
an atmosphere conducive to
peace negotiations.
These include asking Israel
to reopen schools and release
some of the Palestinians im-
prisoned without trial during
the uprising. The PLO report-
edly will be asked to bring a
halt to violent demonstrations

Since 1968, Arab and Jewish
students at Hebrew University
in Jerusalem have been meet-
ing on a regular basis as part
of the Arab-Jewish Project, a
program sponsored by B'nai
B'rith Women in cooperation
with the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation. The project's goal
has always been to provide a
place for Arab and Jewish stu-
dents to meet and discuss how
to co-exist in peace.
But the intifada has posed a
special challenge. According to
Rabbi Yosef Goldman, director
of the Hillel House, the stu-
dents have less hope that the
situation can be resolved and,
since the start of the 1988-89
school year, the dialogue has
sometimes been stormy, with
students concentrating on
teaching each other about
their cultures instead of focus-
ing on the issues that pull them

Israeli and Arab students of
the same age often live down

now has two groups, one con-
ducted in Hebrew and one in

Goldman. Some students have

the Arab-Israeli dialogue in a
broader realm. Muhammad
Masarwa, Israel's consul gen-
eral in Atlanta, Georgia, is an
alumnus of the project.
Alumna Libby Adler, a senior
at the University of Michigan,
has been instrumental in set-
ting up an Arab-Jewish dia-

Free Thought
It is incredibly ironic that in the midst of the
Salman Rushdie affair, there should be two
parallel incidents suggesting that restriction
of thought and expression is as widespread in
the western world as it is in the east.
While Rushdie remains in hiding for fear of
his life after a death threat by the Ayatollah
Khomeini following the publication of "The
Satanic Verses," singers in South Florida
were banned from the Calle Ocho street
festival and Israelis awoke to an outraged
scandal at the suggestion that Adolf Hitler's
"Mein Kamph" might be published in Hebrew
and in Israel.
The Little Havana flap centered on the fact
that entertainers might have sung in Cuba
prior to their political rebirth. Their loyalty to
an idea that of an anti-Castro Cuban
philosophy was called into question.
The Israeli issue should something as
hateful as Hitler's racist ideology, something
as hurtful as his ethic diatribes be available in
a country peopled by the fascist's survivors?
Many are answering "no," just as the Little
Havana Kiwanis Club did in the local free
speech controversy.
The idea of restricting thought and its
expression is exactly what Hitler sold to its
extreme. The Third Reich was built upon
restrictions: of faith, of "race"; of religion; of
a people.
To ban what he wrote, to deny its availa-
bility in the people's language, in this case,
Hebrew to withhold the possibility that
young people might learn how their parents'
world was bastardized before it was cremated
is to follow the questionable example of the
perpetrator of the Holocaust.
Such a move is an obscenity, no matter its

A careless charge against
Jonathan is "treason," a
charge made even by Caspar
Weinberger, lawyer, secretary
of defense. "Just" the Consti-

as "contrary to all legal proce-
dure, the (French) ministry of
war had placed a file of secret
documents (part of which were
forgeries) before the tribunal"
trying Dreyfus in camera
(Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol. 6,
page 226).
Weinberger, just a day
before Jonathan Pollard's sen-
tencing, presented a classified
affidavit in camera to U.S.
District Court Judge Aubrey
Robinson. In view of Weinber-
ger's shrill cries of "treason"
and call to have Jonathan
hanged or shot, can anyone be
confident that Weinberger's
classified affidavit was more to
be credited than the French
war ministry's?

Its merits have been argued
in both Israel and Egypt.
Some Israeli hawks still call it
a dangerous mistake, but there
is a near-universal Israeli rec-
ognition of the relief from the
threat of war, and of the bene-
fit of a first welcome into the
Middle East.
Egypt has its skeptics, too:
Islamic fundamentalists, radi-
cal leftists, and a residue of
Nasserite pan-Arabists all
deride the peace with Israel. A
visit to Cairo last month, how-
ever, convinced an American
Jewish Committee delegation
that Egyptian leadership is
firmly committed to the peace.
President Hosni Mubarak
expressed his absolute attach-
ment to maintaining and
improving Egyptian-Israeli
relations. He was credible in
part on the basis of his record,
but also because of his per-
sonal magnetism.
Mubarak became president
seven years ago by accident,
upon the assassination of
Anwar Sadat on Oct. 6, 1981.

president would become a
charismatic leader.
It was a surprise, therefore,
for his AJCommittee guests to
see just how "presidential" he
has become. He filled the large
reception room of his office in
the Presidential Palace with
his presence.
Emphasizing his commit-
ment to the Egyptian-Israeli
peace, he described to the
group various cooperative ven-
tures already in place, espe-
cially in desert agricultural
He rued the paucity of Egyp-
tian tourism to Israel (in con-
trast with heavy Israel tourism
to Egypt), explaining that
most Egyptians are poor and
cannot afford to travel.
President Mubarak expres-
sed the hope that Israeli-
Egyptian relations would
become warmer, and dismis-
sed recent nasty items about
Israel appearing in the Egyp-
tian media as the excesses of a
free press.
The only negative senti-
ment he conveyed to his visi-
tors was couched in positive-
sounding language: Israeli-
Egyptian ties will improve
markedly only upon the initia-
tion of active Israeli-Palesti-
nian peace talks.
On that issue, the president
broke some new ground by in-
sisting that an international
peace conference gives Israel
no grounds for fear, because
no party, including Syria,
would have the right to veto
successful, mutually agreeable
peace arrangements made bi-
laterally between Israel and
Palestinians, Israel and Jor-
dan, Israel and Lebanon, etc.
As he envisions such a con-
ference, it would include a
brief convening meeting with
international representation,
and would move quickly to
concurrent bilateral negotia-
tions between Israel and its
various neighboring parties to
the conflict.
The outside "conveners"
might include, according to
Mubarak, the United States,
the Soviet Union, Great Brit-
ain, France, maybe Italy, and
of course Egypt.
Even more ticklish than the
international representation at
such a conference a major
source of objection on the part
of Likud leadership is the
composition of a Palestinian

As for Aratat, the Egyptian
president took credit for hav-
ing persuaded the PLO chair-
man to meet the U.S. call for
recognition of Israel, renuncia-
tion of terrorism, etc.
Mubarak argued that despite
recent attempted acts of Pale-
stinian terrorism, Arafat was
sincere in his pledge just
unable to fulfill it, as a result of
some rivals who seek to "put
him in an awkward position."
It was easier for the Ameri-
can Jewish guests to believe
Mubarak as sincere because,
despite agitation from various
rivals of his own within Egypt,
he has been steadfast in his
advocacy of Camp David the
Israel-Egyptian part, that is;
he clearly sees the Palestinian
framework of the 10-year-old
pact as in need of renovation.
And he sees himself as a poten-
tial chief architect.
Not surprisingly, Mubarak
sees Egypt as playing the key
convening role in an interna-
tional conference along with
the United States and the
Soviet Union, 'despite the ap-
parently cosmetic inclusion of
the Europeans.
A bit of chutzpah, perhaps,
but it was not impossible to
imagine this man, who seemed
unexpectedly driven to make
a place in history for himself,
joining with the superpower
leaders to catalyze the peace
process. He certainly means
to try.

But Arens insisted Baker
"did not say anything like that
to me." However, he added,
"we did discuss the impor-
tance of reducing tensions in
the area, bringing down the
scope and the level of violence
that we have to deal with."
Arens told his listeners "if
anyone has a prescription of
how it will be done, I would
certainly welcome it. It is a
very difficult problem, and
there is no magic solution."

America made an emergency
visit to the Swedish consul
general in New York to gain
time for Swedish Jews to con-

inhumane in legislation passed

B'nai B'rith International
also has been involved in
orchestrating what it called a
"worldwide protest" of the
Swedish ban.
The Swedish government
had originally given the Jewish
community a moratorium on
the ban until March 1, after
previous intercession by Jew-
ish groups. This time, Jewish
groups who sanction, service
or observe the practice of
kashrut in America have
interceded as representatives
of world Jewry and succeeded
in extending the moratorium
until June 30.
The groups have also invited
a delegation from the Swedish
Department of Agriculture to
come to America to observe
shehita in an attempt to per-
suade them that the practice is

stun their prey before killing
them. But this practice is con-
trary to Jewish law.
Because fowl may not legally
be imported into Sweden, the
shehita ban would leave the
Jewish community there with
no souce of kosher poultry.
Obtaining kosher meat is not
a new problem in Sweden,
which banned kosher slaugh-
ter of cows and sheep in 1937.
Jewish groups claim the ban
stems from the influence of
Nazi propaganda at that time.
The extension of the ban to
poultry would mark the first
time a European government
has banned kosher slaughter
since the Nazi era.

Why ADL is Going to Jerusalem Now.
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Brith believes the time has come for the Jewish
community to publicly show its solidarity with Israel, and we are enthusiastically supporting the
Prime Minister's Solidarity Conference in Jerusalem.
We believe that too many enemies of Israel and of the American Jewish community have
mistaken the open communal discussion of Israel's current difficulties and the legitimate
differences within our own community as a withdrawal of our general support for Israel.
Even among some of our friends, there is a growing perception that the long-established,
previously unshakable network of support for Israel among American Jews may be weakening.
The cumulative effect of that perception, no matter how false, could be the steady
erosion of the political support Israel has long enjoyed in Washington with potentially disastrous
consequences for Israel's security and future.
ADL believes continuing American Jewish community concern and support for Israel
must be clearly and unambiguously demonstrated to the American political community and the
Action is needed.
For ADL, the beginning of action is to participate in a conference supported by all major
political parties and leaders in Israel, to clearly declare the extent of Solidarity in Israel, and
Solidarity with Israel.
Despite all the discussions and the political and media attention given to our differences,
critical common ground is still shared by Israelis, American Jews, and American government
decision makers. That common ground reflects the fundamental legitimacy of Israel's position in
its quest for peace, and begins with unity on the need for direct negotiations without
There is unity on the need for interim solutions that will adequately demonstrate that
Arabs and Palestinians are more committed to coexistence than destruction.
There is unity in opposition to imposed solutions, because outside pressure will generate
illusions about Israeli weakness and lead to conflict, not peace.
There is unity in opposition to violence and terrorism as a means of negotiation, because
violence begets more violence, and is contrary to the peace process Israel wants and
needs so badly.
ADL is going to Jerusalem to let our own people hear and to let the world hear that we
are one, and that we understand that nobody wants peace more than Israel, nobody.
We still talk about what our grandparents, our parents, and we did or did not do to help
the Jews of Europe during the Holocaust. Our new trial is upon us. How will history judge us?
How will we judge ourselves?

A Prenuptial Solution
To Jewish Divorce
A prenuptial agreement proposed by Rabbi Shlomo
Riskin, chief rabbi of Efrat, in the West Bank, offers a
solution to the problem of those Orthodox women whose
husbands refuse to grant them a get or religious divorce,
which under Jewish law women cannot initiate. These
women cannot remarry, even when they have received a
civil divorce.
Riskin's proposal, included in his recently published
book, "Women and Jewish Divorce," has the approval of
many Orthodox rabbinical authorities.
Under the prenuptial agreement, a husband must not
only continue to support his estranged wife, but also must
pay her a set amount for each day she is refused a religious

A Plea For Medical Help Potential
Friday, March 24, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
The husband of a Margate
woman who must receive a
liver transplant within a year
and a half, has put out a public
plea for help to pay part of the
$250,000 hospital bill.
Jeannette Dix has been
immobilized by the disease
since it struck in 1985. Nor-
man Dix, who recently retired
after working in the meat
department at Publix for 18
years, said he learned that his
family insurance policy doesn't
cover organ transplants. He
also said Mrs. Dix is not old
enough for Medicare, which
would not cover organ transpl-
ants anyway.

Hosts For Israeli Students
High school students from
Israel and more than 20 other
countries are scheduled to
come to the U.S. in late
August to live with families
and attend school.
The Israeli students require
hospitality for approximately
five months; the others come
for a stay of 10 months. Offers
of hospitality are needed.
The program is run by the
Open Door Student Exchange,
founded in 1963 as a not-for-
profit organization.
An active scholarship pro-
gram enables both American
and foreign students to have
an international experience
abroad. In recent years, Open
Door has been the recipient of
10 American government
grants to help students partici-
pate in one of its programs.
Families interested in host-
ing a foreign student, or send-
ing their own child abroad,
should telephone the Open
Door toll free, 800/366/OPEN
(6736); or write: Open Door,
250 Fulton Avenue, P.O.B. 71,
Hempstead, NY 11551.
Host families are entitled to
take a modest tax deduction
(charitable contribution) for
each month they host a foreign
student. In addition Open
Door offers scholarship assis-
tance if their own child wishes
to go abroad or have the schol-
arship awarded to a student in
their host high school.

Shamir will use the gathering,
which comes just weeks before
his meetings in Washington
with the Bush administration,
as proof that American Jewry
stands firmly behind the Likud
leader's political agenda.
Close to 1,000 hand-picked
Jewish leaders from the
United States and elsewhere
are expected at the confer-

All 46 member organizations

The State Department is about
to ask Congress to increase
funding for resettling refugees
by $100 million, Secretary of
State James Baker told Con-
But a spokeswoman for the
Office of Management and
budget said Baker's announce-
ment, made during a hearing
of the House Appropriations
subcommittee on foreign oper-
ations, was premature.
Foggy Bottom also was
caught off guard by Baker's
revelation, with State Depart-
ment refugee affairs spokes-
woman Sheppy Abramowitz
having no initial reaction.
OMB spokeswoman Barbara
Clay said such a request will
soon be made as part of a
supplemental aid request for
the current 1990 fiscal year,
which will cover other areas of
government spending.
The revelation comes just
two weeks after a bill was
introduced in Congress by
Sens. Edward Kennedy (D-
Mass.) and Robert Kasten (R-
Wis.) to increase U.S. funding
by the same $100,000 amount.
The measure, if approved,
also would double the U.S.
quota for Soviet refugees this
fiscal year from 25,000 to
Baker said he thought the
State Department had notified
Congress within the previous
three days about the request.
But Rep. David Obey (D-Wis.),
the subcommittee chairman,
told the secretary of state that
was the first time he had heard
about it.
The Bush administration is
under pressure to raise the
refugee quota and seek addi-
tional funds from Congress, in
order to accommodate the
thousands of Jews and others

Ultra-Orthodox Battle
Women at Wall
JERUSALEM (JTA) Ultra-Orthodox men who threw chairs
at a group of women attempting to conduct services at the
Western Wall themselves became the target of the Israeli police.
Police lobbed tear gas to disperse the ultra-Orthodox men, who
were enraged to see about 60 women conducting group prayers
at the wall.
Women representing various movements within Judaism were
confronted by a line of ultra-Orthodox men blocking their way as
they tried to go past the security check. Police guards intervened
to allow the women get to the women's section at the wall.
Then, some of the haredvm tore down the division between the
men's and women's sections, with some of the men hoisting
chairs to throw at the women.
