Rabbi Feldman New Presidi
Southeast Rabbinical Associatfdn
Rabbi Theodore Feldman,
spiritual leader of Congregation
B'nai Torah in Boca Raton, was
recently elected as the new Presi-
dent of the Southeast Rabbinical
Association, at the annual
conference in New York.
The Rabbinical Association is
an international association of
[conservative rabbis which

rights of rnbbis in

Rabbi Feldman was addi-
ppointed to the Rabbi-

In the two short years he has
resided in this community, Rabbi
Feldman has carved out a leader-
ship role within the South
County Jewish Community. He
is the Chairman of Jewish Family
and Children's Service, a Board
member of the South County
Jewish Federation, and is the
Chaplain and Board member of
the Adolph and Rose Lev is
Jewish Community Center.
Rabbi Bruce S. Warshal,
Executive Director of the South
County Jewish Federation, said,
"There are many kinds of Jewish
leaders, but the most important
and effective are those with an
exceedingly broad perspective.
-Rabbi Ted Feldman fits this
definition. He is not merely the
spiritual leader of Congregation

been elected President of the

During 29 years of Labor rule,
and the subsequent seven years
of Likud administration, neither
party has ever been able to
muster an overall majority of 61
Knesset seats. Thus, smaller
parties have constituted a vtial
ingredient in coalition govern-
ments, often holding the balance
of power and able, therefore, to
exercise far more influence than
warranted by their relatively few
Knesset seats.
WHEN THE current Knesset
was dissolved, the Labor Align-
ment held 60 seats, and the Likud
only 46. Yet the Likud ruled
because moat of the smaller
parties preferred to support it,
rather than Labor. The power of
the smaller factions was most
forcefully expressed over the
years by the four-man ultra-
Orthodox Agudat Israel faction.
It was emphasised when the
three-man Tami grouping with-
drew its backing of the Likud,
forcing the Jury election.

of the names of alleged
members of a Jewish ter-
rorist underground on trial
here came to a halt Mon-
day, when Judge Israel
Weiner finally permitted
release of the names.
Lawyers for the defense had
argued that publishing the names
might well lead to Arab reprisals
against the defendants' families
for their alleged roles in a variety
of terrorist acts, among them:
slaying three Arab students and
wounding 33 others in an attack
on a West Bank college;
accusation against 14 Jews for
complicity in attempted murder
of three Arab mayors of West
Bank cities; charges against 16
members of the Jewish under-
ground for plotting to blow up
the Dome of the Rock shrine in
Jerusalem, one of the holiest aitee
in Islam.
ACCORDING TO the list of
names released Monday, one of
the alleged ring leaders is
Menachem Livni, 26, a
commander in the Israel Defense
Forces. He is charged with pre-
meditated murder in the deaths
of the Arab students and
attempted murder in the car-
bomb attacks on the West Bank
Livni's hometown is Kiryat
Arba, a Jewish settlement near
Hebron, and he has been identi-
fied as the center of the terrorist
underground. Also identified as
among those suspected of
attempted murder in the attacks
on the Arab mayors is Moshe
Zar, 47, an active Jewish settle-
ment builder on the West Bank.

The organization attributes the
decline in relations to a "deli-
berate long-term policy" of the
Egyptian government that is
designed to return Egypt to the
Arab fold.
The AJCongress report
accuses the Mubarak govern-
ment of a growing number of
violations of the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty. It contends that
Egypt has merely seized on
Israeli policies as opportunities
for indulging in anti- Israel
propaganda and other negative
acts in order to prove its loyalty
to the Arab cause.
THE REPORT, entitled "The
Decline in Egyptian-Israel Rela-
tions," was prepared by Raphael
Danziger. international affairs
policy analyst, and Phil Baum.
associate executive director, of
AJCongress. It was released by
Theodore R. Mann, president of
the nationwide organization.
Characterizing Egypt's actions
in impairing its relations with
Israel as "deeply troubling." the
seven-page report warns that the
negative momentum'' created
by the Mubarak government
might eventually imperil the
Egyptian-Israeli peace itself.

list" of Egyptian transgressions
is a cause for particular concern
because "they have been almost
entirely one-sided." The Israelis,
on the other hand, have carefully

establishing peace between two
former enemies, it is "nearly
intact" says the AJCongress
analysis. But because of Egypt's
deliberate violations designed to
appease the Arab states, the
treaty has failed to live up to its
original expectations of serving
as a vehicle for friendship and
cooperation between the two
The report declares that the
most serious Egyptian breach
since the signing of the peace
treaty has been the Mubarak
government's recall of the Egyp-
tian Ambassador from Tel Aviv
in September 1982 and its refusal
to allow him to return, despite
explicit promises to do so.

'Rut Won't Be Effective9
Shamir Suggests UNIFIL Buffer
News in Brief
By JTA Services
TEL AVIV Premier Yitzhak
Shamir has proposed that troops
of the United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) be
deployed as a buffer between the
Israel Defense Force and the
Syrian army in the Bekaa valley
of eastern Lebanon. But UN Sec-
retary General Javier Perez de
Cuellar, who was in Lebanon
Sunday on his Middle East tour
and in Israel Monday, doesn't
think much of that idea.
Shamir said on an Israel Radio
interview that he would offer his
suggestion to de Cuellar when
they met. He maintained that
UNIFIL, while not effective in
preventing terrorist infiltrators
from attacking Israeli border
towns from Lebanon could be
employed as an international
force separating two regular
Perez de Cuellar told an Israel
Radio reporter in south Lebanon
that UNIFIL could not be de-
ployed in the manner proposed
by Shamir. He suggested instead
that the UN troops take up posi-
tions to be evacuated by Israeli
forces in south Lebanon. Israel is
not, at the moment, contemplat-
ing further withdrawals in south
Lebanon. The UN Secretary
General said UNIFIL could be
enlarged only if the contributing
countries increased the size of
their contingents.

subcommittee was urged to
support proposed legislation for
future joint United States-Israeli
development assistance projects
in Third World countries since
"the results should be an en-
hancement of the human condi-
tion at a very modest cost to the
United States.'1
"Considerable benefit will re-
bound to Israel, developing Third
World nations, and the United
States, potentially establishing a
model for trilateral development
assistance and cooperation for
other nations to follow," said Dr.
Jeffrey James, an adjunct profes-
sor at the American University
here, with wide experience in
development assistance in Third
World countries.
James testified last Thursday
along with two other experts on
the subject before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee's
subcommittee on Europe and the
Middle East. The proposed $20
million joint project is ained at
programs in Black African and
Central American nations.

has been beefed up for the July
election by an alliance with

Eitan's "Tzomet" movement.
Eitan, who has called for the
immediate annexation of the
West Bank and Gaza, is popular
on the Right, but his seemingly
derogatory statements on West

relationships between Arabs and

single seat. One leading Israeli
jurist has expressed the view that
an Israeli wanting to apply the
Nuremberg race laws to the
Arabs has no right to ran in
democratic elections.
Over on the left, the Israel
Communist Party and its allies
(the "Hadash" list) currently
holds four seats. Gleaning much
of its support from Iraeli Arabs,
the party toes the Soviet line (at
a time when many European
Communist parties are inclined
to distance themselves from
Moscow's views). Its traditional
anti-Zionist line repels Jewish
votes, but though Israeli Com-
munists suffered many splits
over the years, its present
standard-bearer represents a
aewningly stable constituency
which is very active in the
On the Zionist Left. Shulamit
Aloni's Citizens Rights Move-
ment, which has only her own
seat in the present Knesset, is
running a list whose top three
include Aloni herself in first
place, and doveish personalities
like Mordechai Bar-On and Sheli
leader Ran Cohen (Sheli has no
place in the present Knesset).
The CRM takes a strong line
against religious incursion into
the civil rights of Israel's secular
majority (and its platform
naturally contains strong doveish
sentiments). A maverick on the
left is Lova Eliav. a former
secretary-general of the Labor
Party, and Sheli leader, now
peeved that Labor will not grant
him the chance of a Knesset seat.
THE CENTER has its
mavericks too. Former Likud
Defense Minister Eaer Weizman
is offering the electorate his
Yachad (Together) Party, a
grouping which has been
compared by observe! a to the
defunct Democratic Movement
for Change, which did well in the
Ninth Knees at. under archaeo-
logist Yigael Yadin. now retired
from active politics.
Weizman. one the more
popular and credible (some say
charismatic) figures in Israeli
politics, has a good record ae an
Air Force commander and
Defense Minister, hot it remains
to be seen whether the voters will
see has as a viable alternative to
the larger parties. The other
major champion of the
the Shinui party, with two I

tion as parliamentarian and
This proliferation of parties is
encouraged by Israel's system of
proportional representation,
through which the country
becomes one vast constituency
on election day, with the 120
Knesset seats divided out
according to the votes cast for
each party. Thus a party can gain
a foothold in the Knesset by
winning a modest 0.83 percent of
the vote. or. in other words,
gaining about 17,000 ballots.
THE SYSTEM has both its
supporters and critics. Political
scientist Hanoch Smith feels that
the status quo allows Israel's
diverse ethnic and religious
groups to best express them-
selves in a pluralistic society. He
considers the coalition horse-
trading and haggling as appeal-
ing to the Jewish temperament
and asserts that despite n.ese
coalitions Israel has historically
had strong governments.
Opponents of the system, like
the Committee of Concerned
Citizens, founded by President
Chaim Herzog before he became
Head of State, argue that succes-
sive Israeli governments have
been weakened and blackmailed
by tiny minority factions. They
would like to see a system of
individual constituencies as in
America and Britain. Other less
radical suggestions include a
minimum percentage, possibly 3
percent or 5 percent below which
a party would not be entitled to
representation in the Knesset.
But debate and conjecture
aside, the system remains as it is
for the July election. Bearing in
mind that most of the 30
contending groups and parties
are themselves divided into
several factions, it seems that the
old adage holds some truth -
find two Jews and they'll have
three opinions. Depending upon
their viewpoints, Israelis either
condemn this splinter-group
mentality as weakening Israel's
basic unity or praise it as a source
of strength within a pluralistic
and democratic setting.
RECENTLY, there was, in
fact, a demonstration outside the
Knesset in favor of changing the
electoral system. Though the
demonstration may have been
right and they may still be
proven to be right, in the long run
it is other issues like galloping
inflation, the Lebanese War. and
the future of Israel (border and
peace prospects) which now
dominate the public eye.
It looks as if it is above all on
these issues that the electorate
will decide between the two mam
blocs. Likud and Labor, and the
smaller parties competing tor
votes on July 23. And though the
politicians say every election m
crucial, this time the voters seem
to have the same feeling. Again,
how this will influence the ballot
is anyone's guess.

Temple Beth El Is Field
Test Site For Second Year
The Boca-Delray Section of the National
Council of Jewish Women recently held its
annual installation luncheon at the Boca Woods
Country Club. Among those attending the
installation ceremonies were (left to right) Orah

vice president of the membership branch;
Norma Seligman, president of the branch; Joy
Cohen, president of the section; and Ann

U.S. Urged to Push Paraguay To Extradite Mengele
Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesen-
thal has urged the United
States to press the govern-
ment of Paraguay to locate
and extradite Joseph Men-
gele, the notorious Nazi war
criminal dubbed the "angel
of death" for his crusade
and inhumane experiments
on inmates at the
Auschwitz death camp dur-
ing World War II.
Wiesenthal also told a news
conference here that the 73-year-
old Mengele. responsible for the
deaths of some 400.000 Jews, was
sighted in Paraguay as recently
as six months ago. Mengele lived
at the Astra Hotel in the
Mennonite Village of Valendam.
Wiesenthal said.
JOINING Wiesenthal was
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D.. N.Y.).
whose proposed amendment
seeking to link future U.S.
military aid to Paraguay to that
governments cooperation in
apprehending Mengele passed
the House and awaits
consideration in the Senate. The
Paraguayan government of
President Alfredo Stroessner has
maintained in recent years that it
has no knowledge of the where-
abouts of Mengele.
Nevertheless, he is believed to
have been living in Paraguay
since 1959 and held citizenship of
that country. In 1979. under stiff
international pressure, the South
American country revoked
Mengele's citizenship.
Solarz said Paraguay s
inaction to act on the Mengele
issue constituted an "untenable
situation." He asserted that a
special effort by the U.S. was
justified in this case because
Mengele's crimes "were in a
category all by themselves." and
that an American initiative was
in keeping within the United
States' commitment to the ideals
of justice, a concept Solarz said is
degraded by Mengele's "success-
ful evasion of the bar of justice."
WIESENTHAL. who is based
in Vienna, also provided
documents, some purportedly
signed by Mengele. which
described experiments he ordered
to be carried out on Jewish and
gypsy children. The 75-year-old
Wiesenthal also detailed the
history of his pursuit of Mengele
from his stay in Argentina to his
continued presence in Paraguay.
A victim of Mengele's experi
meats. 52-year-old Marc
Berkowitx, one of a set of
hundreds of twins the Nazi war
criminal experimented on at
Auschwitz, was present at the
news conference. "Mengele was
the greatest criminal of all Jme."
"Let the world not forget that
even those few children who
survived, have never been able to
physically or emotionally recover
from their ordeals," Berkowitz
said. "I urge that every effort be
made to locate each of the
survivors of these unspeakable
experiments with the hope that
some of the victims might be
helped as a result of recent
medical advances."
The Union of American
Hebrew Congregations has an-
nounced that Temple Beth El of
Boca Raton will serve as a field
site for testing the Junior High
School Guidelines of its National
Curriculum Project.
The UAHC is the coordinating
agency for over 782 Reform syna-
gogues serving liberal Jews
throughout the United States
and Canada.
The curriculum project,
directed by Rabbi Howard L.
Bogot, has been entitled "To See
the World Through Jewish
Eyes." The project highlights
Jewish functional skills, perspec-
tives on self and others, insights
from classic texts, continuity and
change, as well as creative
thinking, experience and expres-
This past year Temple Beth El
used the experimental edition of
the Junior High segment of the
curriculum in grade seven. Some
of the students evaluations
included the following
comments: "Skits were fun to
do." "I thought the most inter-
esting discussion was about the
shrinking number of Jews in the
U.S." "This was the best class
because we could be honest and
really talk about our thought*
and fears."
This coming year Tenth Grafe
students, teachers and parent,
under the guidance of Rabbi
Merle E. Singer and Field Tea
Site Coordinator B^
Eisenberg will conduct a year-
long study of specially designed
sequenced learning objectives
and activities. Based on the
evaluation of the field site on
these activities, the curriculum
will be published for the High
School in September, 1985.

Trees Memorialize Civil Rights Leader
Friday, June 29, 1984 /The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
A stand of trees has been
planted in Israel in memory of
Clarence Mitchell, the civil rights
leader who died Mar. 14 in
Baltimore. The trees are located
in the Jewish National Fund's
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Memorial Forest whose honorary
sponsors include every Black and
Jewish member of Congress.
A longtime supporter of
Israel, Mitchell was a member of
the U.S. delegation to the United
Nations in November, 1975, when
the "Zionism is racism" resolu-
tion was passed. He fought
vigorously against the resolution
which was sponsored by the Arab
states and their allies in the
General Assembly. Mitchell also
served as a leading speaker at a
New York rally called to protest
the UN action.
Following Mitchell's death,
Chaim Herzog, Israel's
President, sent a personal
message of condolence to Mrs.
Juanita Mitchell, expressing bis
sympathy and deep appreciation
for her husband's friendship and
active support for Israel.

Relations Between Israel. Austria
Described as 'Very Cordial'
(JTA) Relations be-
tween Austria and Israel
were described as very
cordial by Austrian Defen-
se Minister Friedhelm
Frischenschlager during a
reception for a delegation
of Jewish members of
Congress hosted jointly by
the International Council
of B'nai B'rith and the
World Jewish Congress.
Frischenschlager's description
of Austrian-Israeli relations
contrasted to the previously
stormy relationship between the
two countries during the
incumbency of former Austrian
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky.
Relations were severely strained
during Kreisky's leadership
because of the Chancellor's
courtship of Yaair Arafat, the
head of the Palestine Liberation
Minister also pointed out that
Austria presently maintains the
largest contingency of troops
stationed in the Golan Heights as
part of the United Nation* peace-
keeping force. Frischenschlager
was on a two-week visit to the
U.S. at the invitation of Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger.
Warren Eisenberg, director of
the International Council of B'nai
B'rith, said that Frischensch-
lager's visit underscored the
significant humanitarian role
Austria plays in providing a safe
haven and point of exchange for
Jews emigrating from the Soviet
Union. This is the first visit by an
Austrian Defense Minister to the
U.S. in 12 years.
$81 Million Israel Bond sale s>ets
New Record in Efforts for Israel
Relations between the United
States and Israel have never been
better, Israel Defense Minister
Moshe Arens declared at an 80th
birthday dinner which honored
Jack D. Weiler, of New York and
Delray Beach, the noted
American Jewish leader, for his
more than 40 years of service to
Israel and world Jewry in New
York last week.
"This partnership between the
United States and Israel," Mr.
Arens told the 500 U.S. Jewish
leaders who attended the
dinner," this common effort,
sustains the modern-day miracle
that is Israel. It will make Israel
strong and safe. It will bring
peace to Israel."
Max M. Fisher of Detroit,
Chairman of the Jewish Agency
for Israel for the past 12 years
and a former Special Advisor to
Presidents Nixon and Ford,
served as Dinner Chairman. He
announced that a record total of
$81 million in Israel Bonds and
other Bond Organization securi-
ties had been purchased in honor
of Mr. Weiler's 80th birthday by
members of the President's Club,
the international honor society of
Bond purchasers which is headed
by Mr. Weiler.
Mr. Fisher described the event
as one of the most successful
dinners in the history of efforts
for Israel.
In a telegram to the dinner
from the White House, President
Reagan lauded Mr. Weiler's
many years of service.
"I've often wondered where
this country would be were it not
for the efforts of caring men and
women like you," the President
Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and President Chaim
Herzog also cabled warm
congratulatory messages to Mr.
Major purchases were made by
leaders of the American Jewish
community in honor of Mr.

Censorship Halted As Trial Opens

and commotion when friends and
relatives of the accused objected
to the presence of an Arab attor-
ney representing the wounded
mayors in the car bomb attack.
IN AN editorial Monday, the
Israeli newspaper, Al Hamish-
mar, declared: "They demanded
the attorney's removal because
he is 'an Arab,' because he is
'apparently a member of the
PLO' The racism which
erupted in the courtroom is the
same racism which nurtured the
Jewish underground, and it still
moves about freely in Israeli
All in all, 22 suspected mem-
bers of the Jewish terrorist
underground went on trial in the
Jerusalem district court. Six are
charged with the murder of three
Arab students at the Islamic
College in Hebron in July, 1983
and all face various counts of
attempted murder, acts of
violence and planned acts of
violence against Arabs on the
West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Of the original 27 suspects
indicted on a variety of charges,
two were convicted last Thursday
after confessing to lesser
offenses. They are Gilad Peli, 31,
of Moshav Keshet on the Golan
Heights, and Yosef Zuria, 25, of
Ramat Hasharon.
TWO ARMY officers, Maj.
Shlomo Levytan and Capt. Ronni
Gilla, pleaded not guilty to
charges of complicity in the June,
1980 car bombings that maimed
two West Bank Arab mayors.
They will be tried separately.
Another suspect, Noam Yinnon
of Moshav Keshet, has already
been sentenced to 18 months in
prison at a separate trial.
He pleaded guilty to illegal
possession of explosives and
transporting explosives, in
exchange for which the State
dropped charges of attempted
The proceedings began in an
emotion-charged atmosphere.
The small courtroom was packed
with family and friends of the
accused. The latter charged the
media with a "wild smear
campaign" and "incitement,"
claiming that this precluded a
fair trial. One defense lawyer
demanded that the case be
dismissed for that reason alone.
Others asked for a postponement.
Chief prosecutor Dorit Beinish
said she had no objections to a
postponement until after the
summer recess which would delay
the trial until after the July 23
Knesset elections. The judge said
he would rule on the motion at a
lter date.
broke out even before the judge
entered the courtroom Sunday
when relatives of the accused
objected to the presence of the
Arab lawyer, Ali Sabri. He
represents former Mayor Bassam
Shaka of Nablus, who lost both
legs in the 1980 car bombing.
Sabri was given permission to
attend the trial as an observer
because Shaka is considering a
damage suit against the parties
responsible for booby-trapping
his car.
Relatives of the accused who
'demanded the removal of the
"representative of the PLO" was
put in the form of a motion by
defense counsel Yosef Yeshurun.
It was rejected by Judge Yaacov
Bazak who noted that this is an
open trial.
The cases of Peli and Zuria
were disposed of quickly last
Thursday as a result of their plea
bargaining. Peli was convicted on
charges of membership in a
terrorist organization. He plead-
ed guilty, in addition, to three
counts of conspiracy which
included conspiracy to cause
grievous bodily harm and to
attack the Dome of the Rock and
the Al Aksa Mosque. He also
pleaded guilty to illegal posses-
sion and transportation of weap-
ons and da mag ling army
PELI WAS expected to be
sentenced on Thursday. The
count of terrorism alone carries a
maximum sentence of 20 years
imprisonment. The original
charge of attempted murder was
dropped. His lawyer stressed to
the court that Peli did not partic-
ipate in terrorist activities,
although he was involved in the
preparations for the planned
assault on the Temple Mount and
the attacks on Mayors Shaka and
Karim Khallaf of Ramallah four
years ago.
Peli, a secular Jew who turned
to religion after 1973 Yom Kippur
War, told the court that his
actions stemmed from a deep
conviction that he was serving
the best interests of his country
and people.
He expressed remorse only for
having stolen weapons from the
Israel Defense Force. Peli is
married, the father of two
children. He joined Moshav
Keshet on the Golan Heights
after the 1973 war and worked in
the local school.
ZURIA WAS convicted of
conspiracy to attack the Temple
Mount, illegal possession of arms
and aggravated fraud, to all of
which he confessed. Impersonat-
ing an army officer, he had
conducted surveillance on the
Temple Mount and purchased
eight silencers for Uzi sub-
machineguns which were to be
used in the attack on the Dome of
the Rock.
He is the son of Haim Zuria of
Shavei Shomron on the West
Bank and had lived in Ofra on the
West Bank until two years ago
when he married Anat Shalev,
daughter of Avner Shalev, a
senior official of the Ministry of
Education and Culture and a
former chief education officer of
the IDF.
After his marriage, he moved
to Ramat Hasharon in Israel. He
studied mathematics and
computer science at Bar Illan
University. Zuria's wife gave
birth to a daughter two weeks
ago. He has been in custody and
has not yet seen the child.

Israel Bonds New Leadership
Division Home Forum A Success
The New Leadership Division
of State of Israel Bonds recently
hosted a most successful forum
at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Wil-
liam Boothe. Thirty-five enthu-
siastic participants enjoyed an
evening, meeting new people,
sampling Israeli food, and
listening to speaker Ehud Gol,
Israel Consul of Information.
Mr. Gol addressed the group
on several important issues
facing Israel. The most pressing
issue, according to Gol, is the up-
coming elections on July 23
because the winning party will
have to deal with the economy
and the ever-increasing inflation
rate. The polls show the Labor
Party ahead, but Gol feels Labor
and Likud will form a govern-
ment of national unity and
together attack the economic
issue. "Although one-third of
Israel's GNP is devoted to
defense, an increase in produc-
tivity will help balance the
economy," said Gol.
New Leadership is a newly-
formed division of State of Israel
Bonds in South County. The
group, made up of people who
share a concern about Israel's
survival, plans to accentuate the
educational and social aspects of
a networking system.
Participating on the board are:
Bill and Shelly Boothe. Stephen
and Gail Asarch. Marcia Needle,
Susan Shulz, Shelly and Renee
Stein, and Ken and Asti Stern.
The board is an open group and
invites anyone wishing to partic-

Kahane's Kach List
Banned from Elections
The Central Elections
Committee voted 18-10
Monday to bar Rabbi Meir
Kahane's extreme right-
wing Kach list from
participating in the July
23 Knesset elections.
There were seven absten-
The decision was the first time
in Israel's history that a Jewish
political faction was banned from
an election. An Arab "Socialist
List" was banned 19years ago on
grounds that its objective was to
undermine the existence of the
State. Supreme Court Justice
Gavriel Back, chairman of the
Elections Committee, maintained
that Kahane's list undermines
the principles of democracy itself.
Kahane said he would appeal the
decision to the Supreme Court.
THE RULING against Kach
indicated to some observers that
the Elections Committee will also
bar the Arab-Jewish
"Progressive List for Peace"
which calls in its platform for
creation of a Palestinian state
alongside Israel reduced to its
pre-June 1967 borders. The list is
headed by an Arab nationalist
attorney, Mohammed Miari. and
its second spot is occupied by
Gen. (res.I Mattityahu Peled,
long active in the Israeli peace
The Committee is scheduled to
begin consideration of the "Pro-
gressive List" application later.
It is strongly opposed by the
Likud, Tehiya and other
members of the Committee. The
attitude of the Labor Alignment
is not certain. Defense Minister
Moshe Arena has declined to'
outlaw the list, although he may
under the law on national
security grounds.
Tehiya MK Geula Cohen
claimed that, "If we do not ban
the list, the PLO will have for the
first time a representative in the
Knesset." Miari was on the j
"Socialist List" banned nearly I
two decades ago.
THE BID by Kach was sup-!
ported by Tehiya, the National
Religious Party, Aguda Israel
and Tami, all members of the
Likud-led coalition. It was
opposed by the Labor Alignment, i
Shinui, Civil Rights Movement,
and the Communist Party, Likud
was split. Some supported Kachl
but six abstained.
Bach denounced the Kach liatl
after hearing testimony from I
Kahane. The American-born]
rabbi who founded the Jewish;
Defense League convinced him/
that he should not be alllowed to I
run in the Knesset elections!
Bach said.
He cited Kahane's description!
of Israel's Declaration of ln-1
dependence granting equal rightil
to all citizens as a "schizophrenic!
document" and his call for the!
deportation from Israel of thel
Arab, Druze and Circassian!
"ONLY IN VERY extreme!
cases should one ban a list)
because it is a basic democratic [
right to allow the expression oil
views, even those which arede-f
testable," Bach said. However,
the line must be drawn some-l
where. "If a man such as Kenane!
enters the Knesset and enjoys!
immunity, anti-Semites through
out the world will no longer!
need the Protocols of the|
Elders of Zion."

'Silent no more'
OSIP LOKSHIN was released
on schedule from a three year
labor camp term. Sentenced for
"violating public order" and
"defaming the Soviet state," the
41-year-old lawyer from Kishinev
was sentenced with VLADIMIR
TSUKERMAN after protesting
the authorities' refusal of their
exit visas to Israel. Lokshin and
Tsukerman, who completed his
term several weeks ago, have
been waiting with their families
over five years for permission to
emigrate to Israel.
Calling the current rate of
departures "disastrous" and
"threatening," ten refuseniks
called for a "precise agreement"
with the Soviet Union on the
"unhindered repatriation of
Soviet Jews to Israel." In their
petition, the signatories, who
have been struggling for over ten
years to live in Israel "with our
own people and our parted
families," stressed that if
repatriation is denied to them
and others "the Jewish com-
munity in the Soviet Union
would be in danger ... of total
disappearance" as a distinct
cultural and religious group.
Signing were ARKADY MAI
, and his wife HELEN SEIDEL,
Moscow, along with ISAI
GOLDSHTEIN and his brother
GRIGORY of Tbilisi, and
accused of "disseminating
Zionism's racialist ideology" in
Ian official Soviet English
llanguage journal, published in
I London. The lengthy attack,
which appeared in a May issue of
ISoi'tef Weekly, claimed that
iBegun "engaged in deliberate
libel/' incited "national strife,"
land fermented "anti-Sovietism."
Aimed at Western readers, the
fciece appears to be a reaction to
the extensive criticism generated
by his trial last October.
Meanwhile. INNA BEGUN
lleft for Perm on a scheduled visit.
I Having cabled her husband
earlier, she received a reply
[stating that she should not come,
lout should send money for
|w>oks: a is not clear who sent the
pply. In May she received only
"one letter from Iosif as op-
posed to the two allowed per
nth which included no
feterence that earlier letters had
en received.

SLEPAK is now working as an

Appearing on behalf of the
NCSJ before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, Yuli
Tartakovsky, a Kiev-born Jew
who emigrated in 1975, asserted
that, "Under present conditions,
there is no future for Jews who
wish to do so to live as Jews in
the Soviet Union. For most of
them," he said, "there are only
two alternatives: to assimilate or
to leave. Neither option seems
possible at the present time."

cultural repression in Eastern
Friday, June 29, 1984 /The Jewish Floridian of South County Page II
Organizations In The News
An urgent appeal was received
from Diana Rozhansky-Yashchin
in Israel, on behalf of her parents,
YASHCHIN, and brother,
GRIGORY. Together with his
wife, Dr. Yashchin has been a
refusenik since 1981. A physicist
and former student of Benjamin
Fain, who now lives in Israel,
Yashchin was demoted from his
post as a senior researcher at the
Solid State Physics Institute in
the town of Chernogolovka
shortly after his first refusal. He
was subsequently dismissed. A
few months ago he was again
refused, despite the fact that at
least 15 other families working at
the same institute were permitted
to leave for Israel. "If the Soviet
Union is serious regarding its
intention about the reunification
of families," Diana wrote, "surely
our family merits some
immediate action." She noted
that she and her four year-old son
are "the closest persons for them
in the entire world."
Over 240 members of the
European Parliament signed a
formal document of concern over
the persecution of Soviet Jews.
Entitled "Declaration on the
Treatment of Jews in the USSR,"
it expressed hope that the USSR
would honor its commitment
under the Helsinki agreement to
guarantee basic human rights,
and called for the easing of
tension between East and West.
The document will be sent to
Konstantin Chernenko, the
leaders of the ten members of the
European Economic Community,
and UN Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar.
An appeal on behalf of impri-
soned Soviet Jews is also being
circulated among members of
Parliament from 15 European
countries. Drafted by the Inter-
parliamentary European
Conference, it will be presented to
various Soviet embassies, and
has already been signed by 300
members of the Swedish Parlia-
ment. As a follow up, an Inter-
parliamentary Conference for
Soviet Jews will convene in
London on July 3.

Mini-Exhibit Focuses
On Egypt Peace
The office of Knesset Speaker
Manachem Savidor became the
site of a mini exhibition with
drawings by Israeli artist Yona
Lotan commemorating the peace
agreement with Egypt. Prints of
the pictures were given by Lotan
to all those involved in the peace
agreement. Former Premier
Menachem Begin was repre-

few years. Repeatedly promised
by authorities that his family's
applications were soon to be ap-
proved, all three have been
denied emigration on each occa-
"At one point Yakov's mother
asked authorities why the latest
petition had been denied. She was
told a mistake had been made,
and that Yakov, Maima, and
Marat could leave in three or four
months. That was over five years
ago. Clearly, Yakov is a victim of
increasingly capricious, vindic-

policies of the Soviet Union.
"Yakov is something of a cause
celebre in my home state of
Florida. This is largely due to the
efforts of Dr. Joel Levin, a Miami
physician who has given selfless-
ly of his time and energies
working for Yakov's emigration.
Joel was responsible for putting
together a boxing exhibition to
raise monies for Yakov's emigra-
tion processing some time ago.
At one point in his life, Yakov
himself was a boxer during
service with the Army Sports
Section. Joel is once again plan-
ning a similar exhibition to draw
attention to Yakov's unfortunate
"I commend Joel's efforts to
get Yakov, Maima and his now
ailing son, Marat, out of the
Soviet Union. It is my hope that
he is successful in his campaign.
"As Joel well knows, the hours
of effort are long, and the frustra-
tions and disappointments are
many, for all who try to help
Soviet Jewry. This cannot deter
us, however, it should only move
us to redouble our labors."
