lold Forster, general
si of the Anti-Defamation
of B'nai B'rith, declared
"This self-appointed am-
dor began by agitating
Americans against Jews

lassador Young's
pation. He is now adding to

Jackson asserts, for
" Forster said "that if
the Egyptian-Israeli treaty
negotiations come to a halt,
Arabs will then punish the U.S.
by cutting off oil supplies. Rev.
Jackson concludes that poor
Blacks in America will be the
first to suffer. Rev. Jackson
forgets that all Americans will
suffer if the Arab petro-powers
try to use oil to blackmail Israel
into submission."
The ADL official said Jackson
"implausibly castigates Israel for
trading with South Africa but
fails to add that the total Israeli
export to South Africa is one-
half of one percent. Compare this
to the Black African nations
which export eight times more to
South Africa than Israel. The
Reverend also ignores the fact
that Black African nations
import six times more products
from South Africa than Israel."

Israeli diplomatic circles
here have expressed grave
concern at Britain's
decision to sell Jordan 200
advanced Chieftain tanks,
some of which were
originally built for the
Shah's regime in Iran.
The tanks, worth about 200
million Pounds Sterling, are the
latest model of a fighting
machine which Britain had
originally hoped to sell to Israel.
She dropped the idea about 10
years ago as part of a ban on
arms sales to front line states in
the Arab-Israel conflict. Britain's
only restraint now is her declared
intention of not upsetting the
Middle East balance of power.
THE NEWS of the sale to
Jordan came as no surprise to
Israeli circles here since it had
been discussed by British dip-
lomats in Israel and the Israel
Defense Ministry. Even so,
Israeli sources say they are
worried about the deal because it
adds to the firepower of the Arab
states opposed to the Israeli-
Egyptian peace treaty and
because of Jordan's refusal to
enter the negotiations envisaged
in the Camp David agreements.
The Jordanian tanks are likely
to include some of 1,350 models
ordered by the Shah but can-
celled by the new Iranian govern-
ment. Several other countries are
understood to be interested in
purchasing some of them.
Meanwhile, in Washington, the
State Department said that "we
will continue to discuss with
Jordan" the delivery of tanks,
although King Hussein of Jordan
said on ABC-TV's Issues and
Answers program that his of-
ficials have told the U.S. govern-
ment "we are not interested" in
acquiring American M-60 tanks.

WITH THE Statue of Liberty
and Ellis Island in the
background, the Pope said that
he had a special message for
"leaders of the Jewish com-
munity," including Mayor
Edward Koch who accompanied
the Pontiff throughout his two-
day visit to New York.
"As one who in my homeland
has shared the suffering of your
brethren, I greet you with the
word taken from the Hebrew
language: Shalom! Peace be with
you." The Pope, who recalled the
meeting he had in the Vatican
with world Jewish leaders, was
interrupted several times by
applause during his message to
Jewish leaders.
The Pope's full statement to
Pope John Paul II
Jewish leaders was:
"AND I address a special word
of greeting to the leaders of the
Jewish community whose
presence here honors me greatly.
A few months ago, I met with an
international group of Jewish
representatives in Rome. On that
occasion, recalling the initiatives

a member of the CJF and having
approved the $17,000 in its own
budget, will be eligible to receive
$27,000 through this grant.
Responding to an urgent
requesV from HIAS (Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society) the
national agency responsible for
resettlement, the Russian
Resettlement Committee headed
by Paula Zielonka, assured the
Federation that they could
manage the resettling of 30
people. The Committee, staffed
by the Tampa Jewish Social
Service personnel and a large
volunteer committee, has suc-
cessfully resettled 18 people in
the past six months.
The Russian Resettlement
Committee is involved in
providing housing, language
training, jobs, medical care,
transportation, children's ad-
justment, religious programs,
social and recreational programs,
as well as many other details
relating to the adjustment of a
newly arrived family. It is an-
ticipated that most of the new
arrivals will be "first degree"
relatives of those already in
Tampa mothers, fathers,
sisters, brothers and children.
Ben Greenbaum, Federation
president, charged the board
members to "accept their
responsibilities in relationship to
the need of increased campaign
results for the 1980 drive. We
must," he continued, "make the
total community aware of not
only our responsibilities to
resettle Russian Jews, but the
obligation we owe to our people in
Israel and throughout the world.
The Tampa Jewish community
must accept the challenge of a
campaign which asks more of us
than any other campaign in our
experience, and that means
raising more dollars."

ceremonies in the Rose Garden of
the White House. President
Carter received the recom-
mendations of his Commission on
the Holocaust to commemorate
the Victims of the Nazis and
pledged his personal efforts to
help keep the civilized world
forever aware of it.
The President noted that the
84-page report comes at an
appropriate time.Yom Kip-
pur," and declared: "So I will
consider and respond personally
to this commission and the
people of our nation with my
personal prayer that the meaning

mended the establishment of a
museum in Washington, con-
tinuing education programs and
annual days of remembrance for
the six million Jews and five
million non-Jews who perished in
the Holocaust.
Virtually all of the 34 members
of the commission and the 27
members of its advisory group
attended the ceremonies.
Wiesel took note of the current
threats to the Jewish People and
those made by the Nazis 10 years
before the Holocaust began
"Words must be taken
seriously."' he said. "We must
take seriously all those who
threaten the Jewish people today.
Jerusalem symbolizes our most
fervent hope."
HE NOTED that "10.000
human beings were being
murdered and burned every day"
in the death camps close to urban
centers during the Holocaust.
How was that possible?" he
asked. "We don't know the
answer. The commission believes
we must know the answer. The
commission believes we must
seek an answer." he said.
Carter, in his response, said
that those who perished in the
Holocaust were "victims of the
most unspeakable crimes in all
history." He said that all
civilized people must see to it
that "never again will the world
stand silent or look the other
way" at the "terrrible crime of

The Papal Message
There is no doubt of the impact that Pope John
Paul's visit to the United States has had on all
Americans, no matter what their faith. People are
reaching out for some sort of leadership they feel
they can trust.
Certainly, there is no such trust they any longer
believe they can have in their governmental leaders.
Nor, indeed, in the leaders of the nation's commerce
and industry that once made them the richest and
most powerful country on earth.
Right or wrong, the orchestration of Pope John
Paul's visit here showed him to be a man of benign,
beneficent power, and it is this that seems so at-
tractive to the masses of Americans
So far as the Jewish community is concerned,
there is little doubt that it also felt the warmth of his
feeling. Not even in the three-ring circus called the
United Nations did he shy away from reminiscing
about Auschwitz as a lesson in human morality in
that arena where things Jewish these days are reviled
and held in contempt.
Perhaps It is that the Pope understands that
history is consistent in this single lesson: Jews are
the harbinger of the future, and thus, such
humiliation as is currently being visited upon them
at the United Nations must be regarded as
humiliation-to-come in the not distant future for all
mankind by the forces of immorality that have seized
that body of world opinion and cynically twisted its
high ideals into a mockery of their original intent.
Auschwitz was the Pope's warning to the world,
and we are not a little frightened that, applaud him
roundly though they did, the nations of the world
still do not pay heed.
On Making Friends
Since people are inclined to seize upon the ac-
tions of individual Jews as characteristic of all Jews,
it would seem we must be especially careful in the
choice of actions that we make.
This is especially true in our prospensity for
adopting the high and the mighty as spokesmen for
our various causes. Beginning with the distinguished
journalist, Dorothy Thompson, our contemporary
history is rich in the experience of stellar per-
sonalities who took our money, spoke our sen-
timents, and then stuck a knife in our backs.
It is therefore with some degree of concern that
we note our most recent adoption: this time of movie
actress Jane Fonda and her husband, Tom Hay den,
as spokesmen in the cause of Israel.
It is comforting to hear Fonda talking about the
"invisible but far-reaching lobby for the interests of
Arab states and the Arab rich" in the United States.
But hers and her husband's political propensities are
in the end too volatile and, indeed, explosive for us to
rely upon.

The Truth About Andrew YounA
American Jewish leader in a
political position comparable to
Andrew Young's had done what
Young did. Historically, there u
sufficiently vicious anti-Semitic
opinion floating around to
guarantee Jews that they will
always be put on the spit for the
alleged control they exeraae in
one area or another.
Were. aay. a Robert Strauss or,
even more to the point, a Henry
Kissinger in his heyday, to have |
acted like Young acted as UN
ambassador, the consequences
would hardly be a matter of
I DO NOT raise the issue to
demonstrate that Jews are more
sophisticated politically than
Blacks are, or even more respon-
sible. That is seltevident, just as
the reasons for it, although
beside the point in this context,
are self-evident.
More at issue is that the double
standard here works a double dif-
ficulty. Equal access/equal op-
portunity in American society
today not only accepts far greater
levels of incompetence among the
disadvantaged in high places

Israeli leaders spent more

problem of three million
Palestinians beyond the
country's borders, they
were swiftly drifting away
from the nation's own
Palestinians, its Arab
citizens, those who once
upon a time were known as
"Israel's bridge to peace."
During the long years of a
state of war between Israel and
its Arab neighbors, Israeli Arabs
enjoyed the nickname. But since
peace was nowhere in sight, the
bridge was not of much use. Now
that peace is a reality, che bridge
slowly is collapsing, and the
almost 600.000 Arab citizens of
Israel are generally considered
more as a hazard than an asset.
ALMOST DAILY there are
signs and feelings of tension be-
tween the Jewish and Arab com-
munities, while the government
stands almost hopeless in the
face of the deterioration of

tained close contacts with their
colleagues at the West Bank Bir

stronghold of the pro-PLO Arab
intelligentsia. Other students
went one step further and joined
the El Fatah terror organization.
Eight of them were recently sen-
tenced to prolonged jail periods.

Zedek. Not only is it the first family worship service of the
year (coincidingwith the festival of Simchat Torah) but also, all
of the new children of the religious school will be welcomed with
the ceremony of consecration. In celebration of Simchat Torah,
everyone can participate in the traditional Hakkafot (encircling)
Ceremony as all march around the Temple following the Torah
and singing. In addition, birthday blessings for the months of
August, September, and October will be given. As the mother of
a child who began Sunday school this year in the kindergarten
class (thus will be consecrated) and who has an August birthday
(thus will receive his birthday blessing), I get goose bumps just
thinking about what a special nijrht and wonderful memory this
Sabbath service will be for him! Sponsoring the oneg ahabbat

Letters to the Editor
Editor's Note: When Sgt. Bass was sent overseas, we
published his letter in hopes that some of our readers would
respond to his request for "Jewish contact:' Minnie Fosner,
president of the Jewish War Veterans Auxiliary did so, and the
response is printed here along with a letter from Mrs. Posner.
We are happy to announce that "The Jewish Flondnn of
Tampa" is being set to Sgt. Bass compliments of the Tampa
Jewish Federation.
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian of Tampa:
Some time late in August I had the pleasure of being in your
office having a discussion on some publicity for the Albert
SnoviJTuxiliary 373 of Jewish War^Veterans of Tampa
While I was there you received a post card from a service man
who was being shipped overseas.
Well, to make a long story short, I sent him a New Year s
greeting card on behalf of the auxiliary and myself.
In turn here is the letter he sent to me. It sure is gratifying to
me being able to make someone so happy.
sin cere ly yours,
Albert AronovHx (Aux 375)
Dear Mrs. Posner,
You cannot imagine how nice it was to receive New Year's
greetings from a friendly Jew from Tampa. Thank you and all
the ladies in the JWVA 373. And on behalf of the entire Jewish
military community at Aviano, Italy, (five people) I wish all oi
you a happy and healthy New Year.
Since there are so few of us here, there is no organized Jewish
activity and no Jewish services are held in the chapel. I am told
that a rabbi comes to Aviano once every two months, but since I
have only been here five weeks, I have not met him yet.
This means, of course, that we five Jews are on our own so far
as Friday night services are concerned, or holiday celebrations.
Since I am the top ranking male of the five Jews, I have been
appointed the Lay Leader of the "Jewish Community.'" Any
news of Florida or care packages you send will be share by all of
us, and very much appreciated.
When we were stationed at Clark Air Base in the Philippines
and starved for some bagels and lox, we had the good fortune to
be "adopted" by a temple sisterhood in New Jersey, and they
brightened our day and lightened our homesickness with the
package of matzoh and macaroons and nuts and cans of chicken
soup with matza balls they sent us in time for Passover use.
More than the matza balls, however, was the kind thought that
came with them.
We five meet on Friday nights and talk of home. Any
newspaper or other news from America would be welcomed and
shared by all. Although I am the only one from Tampa, two
others are from Florida (Ocala and Jacksonville) and the other
two are from New York.
So, Mrs. Posner, thank you again for your card, and thank
you and the ladies in advance for anything you send to us in
Italy to remind us we are Jews.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian
of Tampa:
I was up most of the night last
night. So, my friends would say
She's always worrying about
something. With whom, I'm not
sure, but 1 feel compelled to share
why I was so restless. It was the
community that kept me up
my conscience, my skepticism,
my fears, concern and hope.
I spent the early part of the
day pondering over and reading
material concerning Russian
Jewry. I knew I would be at-
tending the Federation Board
meeting in the evening at which
the question concerning
Federation allocating 117,383.00
for the resettlement of 30 Russian
Jews in Tampa would be
discussed. As a member of the
executive board, I had already
been exposed to the information
and had wrestled with this once
before. The second time around
was not easier.
Why was there any hesitation
on anyone's part? Why not bring
them all? Flashes of the people on
boats waiting to be let into a
country; the children, the aged,
the sick memories of the chill
of Yad Vashem. Children too
cramped in Tampa in Hillel
School; group sessions in social
service in quarters that are too
small; a widow desperately in
need of counseling; an aged
person in need of a hot meal, a
teenager in need of a place to go,
a sick man in need of a Jewish
nursing home, the Statue of
Liberty, now that's a weird one
or is it? I've studied about
HI AS and the question of
whether or not Russian Jews
should go to Israel or America.
That is not my decision. I could
help make that decision, but I do
not hold that position.
Why am I so plagued?
Because, I also see flashes of
solicitations listening to
speakers time after time
caring so much during a
solicitation, but fearful of being
too pushy wanting desperately
to have the ability to warmly
convey and convince others of the
need. I am plagued because I
know peace will cost 4 billion
dollars to Israel. I know I will be
asked to ask if you would con-
sider more yes you yes me
yes everybody. How can I
dare? Inflation, recession,
unemployment. I don't know, but
I do know that which plagued me
all night the visions of reality
are awesome.
"It's a life a Jewish life. We
must help." The hope is alive
that we the community will help.
We will help the Russian Jews.
We will help the Israeli Jews. We
will help the Tampa Jews.

The Dunera refugees were the
victims of the tide which swept
Britain in June, 1940 when
France fell, and an invasion of the
country seemed imminent.
Anyone with a German name,
or German or Austrian-born, was
regarded as a "security risk" by
the British authorities. With the
agreement of Mr. (later Sir)
Robert Menzies, who was then
the Australian Prime Minister,
the "Dunera" internees were sent
j to Australia for the duration of
the war.

that they would sail to Canada in

they have made very great

I resigned because I could no longer support policies that had become a threat to the
security of Israel and damaging to the special relationship of Israel and the United States.
I regret only that I did not resign sooner. As early as March, 1977, the President en-
dorsed creation of a Palestinian homeland. Recently, in a gross misunderstanding of
history and the meaning of two social movements, he equated the Civil Rights Movement
of the United States with the Palestinian Liberation Movement. In between, he has pic-
tured Israel and its leaders, over and over again, as obstacles to lasting peace.
He has helped isolate Israel even as he has protested his "friendship." Jews every-
where will long pay for that kind of friendship. Let us not passively accept it.
I cannot support Jimmy Carter for renomination. On October 13th, in the Florida
caucuses, I hope you will not either. We have a choice and it should be an easy one. For
seventeen years in the United States Senate, Ted Kennedy has been a consistent and stal-
wart friend of Israel, in word and deed. He has never cast a bad vote against Israel. His
record is perfect.
In 1976,1 had the honor of writing the Mid-East Israel plank in the Democratic
National platform. I hoped, in the interest of democracy and justice, that it would be im-
plemented by Jimmy Carter. I know now that it will not be, ever, the real policy of the Car-
ter administration.
I urge you to vote on October 13th for those delegates pledged to Senator Ted Ken-
nedy. It would be a mitzvah.
Warmest wishes for a healthy and happy New Year.

Why We Shouldn't Talk With The PLO
The following memo on "Talk-
ing with the PLO" was produced
by the Conference of Presidents
The Tampa Jeuish Federation
Community Relations Committee
has asked "The Jewish
Floridian" to reproduce the
Q. Whv shouldn't the United
States deal with the PLO'
What s wrong with talking"
A. Nothing is wrong with
talking. But we should be talking
to the Palestinian Arabs residing
in the West Bank and Gaza, not
to the PLO.
Q. Is there reallv a difference
between the Palestinian Arabs
and the PLO?
A. AD the difference in the
world. The Arabs of the West
Bank and Gaza are peaceful
residents who have demonstrated
that they are prepared to live in
peace with Israel. The PLOs
singular aim is the destruction of
Israel. No state should be asked
to deal with any country or
organization whose public
purpose is to liquidate that state.
Q. How did the Palestinian
Arab*, of the West Bank and
Gaza come under Israel's juris-
diction in the first place?
A. On the day when the
world s only Jewish state was
created in 1948. it was invaded by
seven Arab states. While they
did not succeed in destroying
Israel. Jordan did succeed in
occupying the West Bank: Egypt
occupied Gaza. In 1967. when the
same Arab states again at-
tempted to liquidate Israel.
Jordan was forced to retreat from
the West Bank and Egypt from
Gaza. Since then, both territories
have been administered by Israel
It is noteworthy that in all the
years Jordan occupied the \Nest
Bank and Egypt controlled Gaza,
no attempt was ever made to
establish a Palestinian state
Q. What about the human
rights of the Palestinians?
A. It is cynicism of a very high
order for Arab states to complain
about the human rights of the
West Bank-Gaza residents while
slavery still exists in Saudi
Arabia and freedom is unknown
anywhere in the Middle East out-
side of Israel.
In the 12 years of Israeli ad-
ministration of these territories.
the Arab residents have pros-
pered economically as never
before: health has improved and
longevity has increased
dramatically; education has

Pope Recalls Tragedy of Auschwitz
UNITED NATIONS Pope John Paul II. in a major
address to the United Nations
General Assembly, called for a
comprehensive settlement of the
Middle East conflict, implied
approval of the Israeli-Egyptian
peace agreement and declared
that a peace settlement cannot
fail to include the consideration
and just settlement of the
Palestinian question.'
He also spoke on behalf of the
territorial integrity and
tranquility of Lebanon and
reiterated the Vatican s position
on Jerusalem, calling for a
'special statute for that city
EARLi' IN his speech, which
he delivered in English, the Pope
recalled his recent visit to the
former Auschwitz death camp
and urged that everything that
recalls those horrible experiences
should disappear forever
from the lives of nations and
states, everything that is a
continuation of those experiences
only in different forms .
He also declared that "All
human beings in every nation
and country should be able to
enjoy their full rights under any
political regime or system.'"
In his remarks on the Middle
East, the Pope said: "It is my
fervent hope that a solution also
to the Middle East crises may
draw nearer. While being
prepared to recognize the value of
any concrete step or attempt
made to settle the conflict. I want
to recall that it would have no
value if it did not truly represent
the 'first stone' of a general,
overall peace in the area, a peace
that, being necessarily based on
equitable recognition of the
rights of all. cannot fail to include
consideration and just settlement
of the Palestinian question."
THE POPE said. Connected
with this question is that of the
tranquility. independence and
territorial integrity of Lebanon
within the formula that made it
an example of peaceful and
mutually fruitful co-existence
between distinct communities, a
formula that I hope will, in the
common interest, be maintained

Cures Found in Hebrew Writings
(Third in a Series)
Heal me. O Lord, and I shall be healed: save me. and I shall
be saved, for Thou art my praise iJeremiah. 17:12).
When Rome destroyed Judea and the Holy Temple (Bait-
Hamikdosht lay in ruins (70 CE). there arose a new hope, for the
sages had not surrendered their intellectual activity. Schools
were organized for the preservation of the teachings of the
Torah. These schools were founded in Jabneh. Nahardia. Sura.
Alexandria and Tiberias In these schools, dedicated mainly to
the study of law. all the sciences of that time were taught among
which the healing art was cultivated and the foundation laid of
what we call Talmudic Medicine.
The following are some of the sayings of the sages of the
Talmud regarding sickness and medicine:
A scholar is forbidden to live in a city unless it has a physician
and sjrgeon iRofe and Rofe Umman) Patients visited the
physician in his home loffkel. Anyone renting to a doctor must
obtain the consent of the neighbors, since the noise and cries of
the patients might disturb them. iBabaBatrah 21a) A person
who was the victim of an assault could refuse a physician who
lived n another town since he might not come often to examine
the m und. 'Baba-Kama 83a)
Ope-ating rooms had to be walled with marble (Battei Shyishl
for cl- anliness. iSanhedrin 78a) A doctor had to be paid for his
services rendered. Free medical services was discouraged. "A
physi. an who charges nothing is worth just that, nothing."
Abba Umana (300 CEl was a doctor and a charitable man. He
hung a box on the wall of his office, where anyone put in, un-
noticed, whatever he could afford for medical treatment. Poor
students were not charged medical fees so that they could use
the money for convalescence. (Taantt 21b)
If a licensed physician injured a patient or caused his death he
was not held guilty iSanhedrin 84b). The emblem of a doctor
was a palm orancn or oaisam bush. Many Talmud scholars were
physic :ans. Among them were R. Ishmael, R. Hamna B. Dosh.
Josep- Ha-Rofe of Gamla. Tobiah Ha-Rofe of Modin and
Samuel B. Abba Ha-Kohen iMar Samuel 165 CE)

good for the eyes, and needless to say for the bowela." Said
Abaye: "This is only if it is left on the stove till it goes tuk, tuk,

The rabbis taught: One who swills down bis food with plenty
of water will not suffer with bis bowels. How much should he
drink? R Hisda says: A cupful to a loaf. 'Berakoth 40a)
Six things heal a sick person of his disease permanently:
cabbage, beef, dry poley. the maw ifourth stomach), the womb,
and the large lobe of the liver of a cow.
Undiluted wine is to be used as a base for medicine, as in
Karyotis (a kind of a date with the shape of a nut. used for
medicinal purposes). 'Berakoth 50b)
Abaye s mother died in his childhood, he was brought up by a
nurse whose popular sayings, remedies and superstitions he
often quoted.
Abaye stated: Nurse told me that roasted ears are beneficial
to the heart and they banish morbid thought."
If a man suffers from weakness of the heart, let him take the
meat of the right flank of an ox and some fresh wilflow twigs, eat
it and after the meal drink some diluted (clear) wine lErubin

R. Habida said. If a person has been bled and felt chilly, a fire
may be made for him on the Sabbath even during the hottest
period of the year (Month of Tammuz). lErubin 79b)
Rab said to his son Hiyya: Do not take drugs (even as a
medicine as they are habit forming) Do not leap in great leaps
(the strain affects the eyesight). Do not have a tooth extracted
(refers to a molar tooth). It was popular belief it would affect the
eyesight. 'Pesachim 113a)
Abaye said; Mother told me the proper treatment for a child
consists in bathing in warm water and rubbing with oil. When he
has grown a bit. rub him with a mixture of egg and a preserve
consisting of sour milk, bread-crusts and salt tKutah) When he
grows up still more, buy him clay vessels to be used as an outlet
for emotional surplus energies (cheaper than anything else on
which he might wreak his anger). lYoma 78b).
Rabbi Muna said in Rabbi Judah s name. "A drop of cold

Koenig, northern

for those Arabs who expressed

to recommend that Arabs should
be "encouraged" to leave the
country. The so-called Koenig

Interior Minister Yosef Burg, but
many said quietly that there were
some good ideas in that
document. Koenig is still in
Recently, in a workshop
organized by the Samuel Neaman
Institute for Advanced Studies in
Science and Technology at the
Haifa Technion, a well-known
Mideast expert, Prof. Yehoshua
Porat, suggested a proposal dia-
metrically opposed to that of
Koenig. He suggested finding a
new modus vivendi for Israel's
Arabs by fully integrating them
into the State, including their
possible absorption into the
Israel Defense Force.
PORAT WENT so far as to
say: "It follows that we are
nearing the end of the Zionist era
in the history of the Jewish
people. The majority of the
Jewish people gradually choose
to live outside of Israel. The
Jewish residents of Israel must
wake up from their illusions and
act according to this new reality.
Therefore, we must prepare our-
selves for the day when the rate
of Israel's Arabs threatens the
existence of a Jewish democracy
as such. The only way to do so is
to gradually advance toward a
reality in which two groups of
populations with different
cultures and ethnic iden-
tifications can share a common
Israeli citizenship and loyalty
within the same State."
The workshop finally recom-
mended the middle of the pro-
posal which actually endorsed the
existing policy: "Israel's Arabs
should live in peace with the
State and be loyal and law
abiding citizens, but one cannot
expect the Arab minority to
identify themselves with the aims

SOME ISRAELIS say there is
really no solution that even if
the State of Israel were to dis-
appear, there would still be a
Palestinian problem; even if a
Palestinian state would be estab-
lished the Arabs would then
demand a return to the 1947
But even if one adopts a more
hopeful approach, that the
solution of the Palestinian
problem might also eradicate
nationalist feeling among Israel's
Arabs, the demographic
statistics still present a problem:
Israel's Arabs presently number
close to 600,000, some 16 percent
of the population.

a wife and mother as well as an
active participant in the Irgun.
She joined this underground
movement in its early years, was
imprisoned by the British several
times, and later worked as a
broadcaster for the movement.
When she and her husband were
both arrested, she was sent to the
Bethlehem women's prison and
he to Africa.
She was released briefly to give
birth, then detained and even-
tually let go altogether. Alone,
she raised their three children,
taught school during the day to
support the family, and returned
to work for the Irgun in the
evenings. She continued in this
way until the day the British left
In March 1948, with Shmuel
Katz away collecting money in
America, Doris decided the time
had come for her to stop being a
"tame" terrorist and to learn how
to be a soldier. Soon after making
her decision known, she found
herself part of a group of young
women who were starting a
course in the handling and use of
firearms. They learned
everything there was to know
about revolvers, sten-guns and

hand grenades. But ammunition
was so precious they didn't learn
how to shoot.
WHEN DORIS said she'd like
to go to an army camp for a week
or two and really learn to shoot,
the first part of her offer was
taken up immediately. But when
she arrived at the remote base,
she found herself appointed chief
cook. Rather disappointed, she
nevertheless threw herself into
the work. Together with another
woman she had to prepare break-
fast, lunch and dinner for 40
people with only two large
I saucepans and a frying pan at her
I disposal.
On her last day at the camp,
she was "rewarded" by being
1 allowed to shoot a couple of
rounds on the rifle and sten-gun.
She describes this experience:
"I proved to be a tolerably
good shot, especially with a rifle.
I had no qualms about shooting
at a tin target with a sten-gun,
but I am positive I could never
have shot at a human target,
unless of course it was a question
of who got it first. After having
actually handled the firearms and
having convinced myself that I
could really shoot if the occasion
arose, I had no further com-
punctions about returning back
into a meek and mild civilian-like
soldier rather than a rip-roaring
SHE WAS a bit modest in
describing herself as meek and
mild. Her life in the underground
was intricately tied up with the
history of the State. She ex-
perienced the War of Indepen-
dence, and the siege of and battle
for Jerusalem. She lived through
it all, participating in whatever
capacity she could in field
kitchens, as a nurse in an Irgun
hospital, as a driver, on fund
raising missions to Johan-
nesburg, Geneva, Paris.
Stockholm and London.
But she maintained, while in
retrospect life in the underground
may sound romantic and ex-
citing, in reality "it alternated
between the day-to-day struggle
against financial and physical
hardships, and the constant
worry and anxiety about the
safety of friends and acquain-
tances in general and those
nearest and dearest ... in
particular." ,sraei Digest

The argument going around some Jewish
homes is: "Mott's is delicious"-or-"Mott's
are delicious." But there is never any
argument about DELICIOUS. Because
they are. Mott's captures all the
natural and sparkling taste
of the sun-ripened fruit. And
many Jewish housewives know
it. And that's why they serve
Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the
apple sauce varieties or
the prune products, you
just know it's the finest
because Mott's uses only
the finest quality apples
and sun-ripened prunes.
So whether it should
be Mott's 'IS', or
Mott's 'ARE'...
Mott's "are/is"
