Rodeph Sholom. Service par-
ticipants are Rabbi Nathan Bryn
of Congregation Beth Israel;
Rabbi Frank Sundheim of
Congregation Schaarai Zedek
and Lt. CoL Allan Fox, president
of Congregation Kol Ami.
The Oneg Shabbat is being
provided by the Beth Israel
Sisterhood, and the entire service
is under the sponsorship of the
Synagogue Council of Tampa.
A LOCAL tradition of many
l years' standing, the in-
teroongregational Sabbath is
appreciated by all who attend as
a time to enjoy worshipping
together as a community without
the division of separate
congregational affiliation. This
annual service is held on a
rotating basis, and tonight Beth
Israel plays host.
The Synagogue Council of
Tampa followed in formation
several years after the Tampa
Rabbinical Association (TRA).
The rabbis found so much benefit
from their monthly meetings that
they encouraged their lay
.eadership to join them in a
Synagogue Council of Tampa.
This became a functioning
organization this past year under
the chairmanship of Rabbi
Sundheim. Each congregation is
represented by its president and
its rabbi.
Besides the Inter-
congregational Sabbath, the
Synagogue Council this year
assumed the sponsorship of the
Adult Studies Institute.
Campaign Easily Nears $600,000
The 1980 Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
has passed the $580,000 mark
with 25 percent of the 1979
contributors cards completed,
according to Michael L. Levine,
campaign chairman.

At a campaign progress report
luncheon held last Friday, Judith
Rosenkranz, Women's Division
chairman, reported the Women's
Division "has surpassed $100,000
in 1980 Campaign pledges. This
represents an increase of $10,000
over the same cards in 1979 with
only one-fourth of the prospects

Political Counteroffensive
The Reselling of the Importance of Israel on Capitol Hill
London Chronicle Syndicate
the Pentagon brass accused the
American Jewish leadership of
being soft on U.S. national
security issues, especially when it
came to defense spending.
Pentagon officials resented what
they perceived as an apparent
contradiction of the Jewish
community to advocate a
military-powerful Israel but a
weakened U.S. arsenal.
This impression was created
during and immediately after the
Vietnam War when many of the
most outspoken critics of
American military policy were
Jews, who were simultaneously
supporting increased arms
supplies for Israel. Some Jews in
Congress led the fight to cut the
U.S. defense budget.
"You can't be a 'dove" or a
'liberal' on every military-related
issue and a 'hawk' on Israel's
security." was how one military
officer explained the resentment.
ANGER AT the perceived
attitude of the Jewish com-
munity heightened after the 1973
Vom Kippur War when it seemed
that some stockpiles of U.S.
arms, especially tanks and ar-
mored personnel carriers, had
been sharply drawn down
because of the massive U.S.
emergency airlift to Israel during
the war.
And as Israel's arms requests
from the United States continued
to grow in the years following the
war. the Pentagon embarked on a
determined lobbying campaign to
demonstrate to the American
Jewish community and other
friends of Israel that a very real
linkage does exist between a
strong U.S. defense policy and
Israeli security needs.
Recently, that effort has begun
to meet with increasing success
among many rank-andfile Jews
around the country. Israel's
security, to a large degree,
depends on u.S. military support.
"You can't support Israel and
oppose the Pentagon at the same
time," a U.S. policymaker said.
Defense Secretary Harold Brown
at the Pentagon on Dec. 14, a
delegation of American Jewish
leaders made it clear that they
now understand and appreciate
the Defense Department's way of
thinking. The Jewish leaders
conceded the strategic im-
portance to Israel of a militarily-
powerful America, capable of
resisting Soviet advancements in
the Middle East and throughout
the world.
But what they asked Brown to
concede namely, that Israel
represented a strategic asset to
America was by no means
forthcoming. The Defense Chief
was reluctant to describe Israel in
such terms, even thougl.
President Jimmy Carter and Vice
President Walter Mondale have
both called public attention to
Israel's strategic value to
Sources present during the
closed door meeting quoted
Brown as saying that the United
States was very limited "in
practice" when it comes to using
Israel for military or strategic
purposes, given the negative
effects any such operation would
have in the Arab and Moslem
acknowledged that, "in a pinch,"
the United States knows that it
could count on Israels support.
Hut ha expressed the hope that
such a scenario would never
materialize 'hi bum, for all
practical purposes, it would mean
thai the United States was
burning its bridges with the rest
of the Arab world.
Thus. Israel may be prepared
to provide America with bases
and port facilities for use during
an emergency. But based on
Mrown's attitude, the United
States is not yet interested in
such military cooperation with
Israel. The State Department
clearly goes along with Brown.
Indeed, other U.S. officials
have disclosed that the State and
Defense Departments "shudder"
every time an Israeli official
speaks publicly about possible
U.S. Israeli military cooperation.
"It drives the Arabs and the
Moslems crazy," an American
official explained. That's why the
U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv has
appealed to the Israeli leadership
and the news media not even to
speculate about such joint ac-
tivities, especially not during the
continuing impasse involving the
hostages at the U.S. Embassy in
thinkers at the Pentagon and
many more outside the govern-
ment disagree with this
prevailing view, as expressed by
Harold Brown and other U.S.
officials. These critics are con-
vinced that the U.S. no longer
has the luxury of waiting for the
given light from some of the Arab
countries before opening a full-
fledged program of cooperation
with the Israel Defense Forces.

Protestant Churches Seen Pro-Arab
(JTA) A Protestant
clergyman accused Protes-
tant churches and clergy-
men in the U.S. of taking a
"one-sided" position in the
Arab-Israeli conflict, preju-
dicial to Israel.
The Rev. Dr. Carl Her-
mann Voss. Ecumenical
Scholar in Residence of the
National Conference of
Christians and Jews (NC-
CJ). made that charge in a
statement he presented at a
panel discussion on the
Middle East conducted by
the National Council of
Churches of Christ.
"As an ordained minister of
the United Church of Christ. I
have been disappointed and dis
mayed by the bias manifested in
Protestant churches and among
the clergy and in my own
denomination particularly, and of
late I have been taken aback by
the one-sidedness and partisan-
ship so clearly reflected in
releases by the Office of News
and Information of the National
Council of Churches of Christ in
the USA..'" Voss said.
HE REFERRED specifically
to a press kit supplied by the
NCC m connection with its
Middle East "hearing" sum
marizing the situation in that
region. "I cannot help but
deplore the prejudice and mis-
information, the lack of ob-
jectivity, and the absence of com-
prehensiveness of the total
picture as represented by this
inadequate, often misleading
informational packet," Voss
The NCC hearing, which began
in New York Feb. 6 and resumed
in Washington Feb. 13. is a
prelude to a three-week fact-
finding tour of the Middle East.
A number of major national
Jewish organizations declined
invitations to participate in the
pjnel discussions on grounds
that they were biased against

In recent weeks, this school of
thought has focused attention
on a possible American takeover
of the Israeli airbases in Sinai.
The Ftzion and F.itam bases are
among the most sophisticated in
the world. The Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty calls for their
demilitarization following the
total Israeli withdrawal from
Sinai in 1962.
This would viewed by the
critics as a terrible pity, given the
latest expansion of Soviet air,
ground and naval capabilites
throughout the region.
During the past three years,
there has been a small Jewish
organization here in Washington
working quietly to try to advance
two major objectives: to inform
the Jewish community of the
importance of American defense
to the survival of the U.S. as well
as Israel: and to educate the
American public on the
geopolitical values of Israel to the
U.S. as an outpost of Western
interests in the Middle East.

Women's Division Learns
Much from Sue Stevens
Sue Stevens is like a honey bee,
her admirers say, going from
flower to flower and spreading
her nectar so the plants will bear
Stevens' journey is from
Federation to Federation, where
Women's Divisions are told
words of wisdom picked up
around the country.
A former resident of Miami,
Stevens is now director of the
Women's Division for the Council
of Jewish Federations head-
quartered in New York City.
Last week she spoke to the
Women's Division of the Tampa
Jewish Federation, now in the
midst of its 1980 campaign.
Congratulating Ricki Lewis
and Adrianne Golub as co-
chairwomen of the Tampa
Sholom Committee, Stevens
related how important it is to
follow up on the initial welcome
to newcomers.
"In some places, they give
them their candles, their papers
and literature, and three years
later they are still waiting to hear
from someone," she said.
"People like yourselves hardly
have time to spend with people
you love or have strong frien-
dships with," she noted. "But
there are people in Tampa who
don't love or know anyone.
They're waiting for someone to
come around."
In Denver, she said, there is a
year-round Newcomers Club that
is very successful. And in
Minneapolis, the community has
one of the most successful
campaign drives in the country.
The reason is they spread the
work around to everyone. "No
one is allowed to have more than
three cards to solicit," she
One of the problems, she noted,
is the tendency to overload
people. "We've got to make the
job reasonable. Spread it out. Let
a lot of people do it. No one has to
bleed for the Jewish community.
The more we can spread the task,
the easier it will be to get people
to do it," Stevens said.
She also stressed the im-
portance of fitting people to the
job. "Some people shouldn't
solicit," Stevens insisted. "But
there are other things they can
Recruiting came in for strong
comment from Ms. Stevens, who
emphasized that "it is critically
important that after we recruit
someone, we motivate them.
There needs to be an educational
and motivational element in
everything we do."
And she advised chairmen "to
follow up and see that everyone is
doing the job."
Finally, she said, "Evaluate
very carefully so you can begin
planning again."

It takes three days to recover," the head of
Operation California said to me last week after I
stepped off the plane from Thailand, having spent
nine days touring the refugee camps in Thailand,
Laos and Hong Kong.
"It takes three days No, he's wrong. Once
you've been there, it takes a lifetime.
I have stood in the German concentration camp
of Matthausen, amid the silent memory of horror.
That was different. There was only the echo of death.
Walking across the Thailand border into Cambodia,
I encountered some of the 300,000 homeless people
who are desperately clinging to life.
This time we cannot sav that it is impossible for
human beings to be capable of savagery, or that we
are ignorant of the suffering that is taking place.
How can those of us who care make others see
the starving children, or hear the agony of a mother's
wail as she clutches her dead child to her, or smell the
stench of rotting bodies, some of them still alive? Is
there a way to soften the hearts of those who could
help, if only they would?
The vacant stares of the children with big bellies
and stark ribs, the infants too weak to cry, mile after
mile of people in line for a bit of rice their struggle
for life means pain. But at least they know that the
pain means life.
I have stood at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
Cambodia has no wailing wall at which to mourn its
tragic losses, yet the Cambodian people, like the
Jews, are survivors. They have done so much with so
I saw with my own eyes what miracles the in-
ternational relief agencies, spearheaded by U.S.
efforts, have wrought in a matter of weeks. The food
is in the camps and is getting through on the borders
for now. In a few months the Vietnamese will
surely force more Cambodians out. But meanwhile,
the food rations, plus a little medicine and a little
care, have sparked the life force. Along the borders a
hundred children (who, according to my guide, were
15 to 18 years old, though they looked 7 or 8)
followed me and I played with them. They smiled, and .
hope was born. |
I will never forget the faces of those children,
any more than I could forget the faces of my own four
children. Seeing their hope has deepened my com-
mitment to the resettlement of Southeast Asian
refugees in the United States and elsewhere. What a
rare privilege it is to be alive and able to sponsor a
refugee family.
As a Jew, I came away from the Nazi holocaust
with a personal directive. It is expressed in Leviticus
19:16, which I translate loosely: You shall not stand
idly by while the blood of your brothers and sisters
cries out to you from the earth.
We live in extraordinary times, in a world filled
with anarchy and terror, mistrust and disillusion-
ment, degradation of values and corruption of ideals.
It is an age of broken promises and broken vows. But
how many Nazi holocausts, how many Cambodian
genocides, can the human race endure and still
regard itself as worth propagating? Nothing less
than the value of life and the meaning of human
existence is at stake in our response to the cry of the
blood of our brothers and sisters in Southeast Asia.
Three days to recover from a trip to the Cambodian
border? No. Even a lifetime may not be enough.
THE TRIALS at Nuremberg
are coming back to haunt us.
What we demanded from in-
dividual Nazi war criminals were
confessions of guilt. That was all
right in the cases of individuals
against whom there was clear
evidence of wrong-doing.
We could have left it there at
Nuremberg and come away

The Rise of an Israeli Stage Idol
HAIFA Even the Israeli
public, long accustomed to
unusual and dramatic sagas in a
land where almost every citizen
has his own exciting story to tell,
followed with intense interest the
recent television presentation of
the life story of one of the leading
ladies of the local stage, Orna
Porath For those who had not
known previously, it came as a
revelation that the versatile and
dramatic actress, speaking
faultless, unaccented Hebrew,
was a convert to Judaism.
The story flickered on the
living room screens of the
country, the early days
illustrated with snapshots from
the family album. She had been
born as Irene Klein in Cologne,
Germany in 1924, daughter to a
cultured German Christian
family. She was drawn to the
theatre at an early age, attended
drama school and played roles in
Cologne and Schleswig.
LIKE MANY of the young
people of her day she was at-
tracted by the flair of the Hitler
youth movement, and sought to
join, but was dissuaded by her
parents. When she became aware
of the true policies of Nazism she
swung to the other extreme, and
became affiliated with left wing
groups. By the end of the war she
had decided to emigrate to
Russia and throw in her lot with
the great Socialist homeland of
the world's working classes.
She made application to the
military occupying authorities, in
this case the British army, and an
officer was sent to inquire as to
her motives for the request.
Following the interview she made
a private note: This man
going to be my husband."
He was Yosef Porath, a young
Palestinian serving in British
uniform, and working in the DP
Camps. They were married, and
in 1947 arrived in Palestine. Her
mind was still set on Socialism,
and she wanted to join a kibbutz,
but no kibbutz wanted an ac-
tress. They made their home in
Tel Aviv, and she made the
rounds of the theatrical groups,
speaking German.
IT BECAME clear that
without a knowledge of Hebrew
she would get nowhere, and so
she applied herself to learning it.
In the meantime, whe got a job as
domestic help. Habimah was not
interested in her, but she Anally
made a connection with the
Cameri, the Chamber Theatre, by
acting for a year without pay.
Her mastery of the language
was phenomenal, and in a short
while, Israel's theatre going
public became aware of a new
star. She played Juliet, Electra,
Lady Precious Stream, and many
other roles, but she is perhaps
most frequently associated with
her stellar performance in Shaw's
Joan of Arc.
After an absence of a few
yeare, she has now again

comprised of 21 volunteers, who
are "local business and
professional people drawn from
as wide a spectrum as we can tap
into," Thai elaborates.
"Members meet once a month
for lunch to hear profiles of hard-
to-place clients. Our Committee
includes an industrial
psychologist and a physician in
rehabilitation medicine, who help
evaluate the clients. Primarily,
members make recommendations
as to who might be helpful in
placing one of the persons
described. Sometimes they make
the contacts themselves or say
we can use their names."

What the Committee has
begun to do is to establish a
network of resources which Social
Service staff members can use in
placing their clients.
"It's providing us with in-
formation on Jewish employers in
this community that we don't
have available to us," says Thai.
"When we call some of the
referrals, they may say they can't
use the person we're trying to
place, but why not call this
person, and they give us a name.
Also, Committee members talk to
their friends about the people

calls from that.''
ONE POSITIVE development
from the creation of the Com-
mittee has been the moral
support it has provided to the
clients it has contacted.

Judging by statistics for the
last six months of 1979, the
Industrial / Employment
Advisory Committee has had an
impact. Of the 27 people served
by the Committee during that
period, 23 are now working. The
Committee placed five, six were
secured jobs by staff members,
ten placed themselves, and two
upgraded their employmei t
ALMOST HALF of those
served by the Committee were
Russians, saddled with the
problem of a language barrier.
"One of our primary
responsibilities to the Russians
coming to Tampa under our
Resettlement Program is to help
them seek employment," Thai
says. Because they can barely
speak English and are basically
unfamiliar with the economic
system here, it is difficult for
many Russians to attain
positions comparable to those
they held in their own country.
Thai says that one of her most
satisfying placements from the
Committee occurred last month
when a highly trained electrical
enginer from Russia was able to
get a similar job in Tampa. "He

The Jewish Fhridian of Tampa
Israel Embassy Opens in Cairo
first Embassy of Israel in the
Arab world was formally opened
in Cairo last week. The blue-and-
white flag with the Star of David
was hoisted over a two-story tan
building in the fashionable
Dokki section of the Egyptian
capital at 10 a.m. local time, and
a plaque was unveiled with the
words "Embassy of Israel" in
Hebrew, Arabic and English.
The ceremonies were in a low
key. The advance staff of the
Israeli diplomatic mission sang
Hatikva as the colors were
hoisted. Some Egyptians wat-
ched from the terraces of neigh-
boring buildings, but many
passersby seemed unaware of the
event. Yossef Haddas, the Israeli
Charge d'Affaires who headed
the Embassy until Ambassador
Eliahu Ben-Elissar arrived in
Cairo on Sunday, made a brief
speech in which he expressed the
hope that other Arab countries
will follow the example of Egypt
and make peace with Israel.
"LET US HOPE that other
Arab leaders will join the peace
process which the leaders of both
our countries have done so much
to build for good neighborly
relations between our peoples,"
Haddas said. The Israeli
diplomat, who was born in Syria,
spoke in Arabic.
Ben-Elissar presented his
credentials to President Anwar

The smooth functioning of the

threatened by a dispute between
Ambassador Ben-Elissar and
Foreign Ministry employes over
who should be the envoy's
personal secretary. Ben-Elissar
insists on Fanny Ashkenazi. his
private secretary for the past
seven years.
But the general assembly of
Foreign Ministry employes voted
overwhelmingly to demand that
he select a new secretary from
among qualified Ministry per-

that about 15 secretaries at the
Ministry are about to be
dismissed for economy reasons
and therefore every job opening

Dedicated to the principal. (Prmlses ^ Godl lArehin 10b and

HiUelDay School. MegUlan Mai
Purim is a minor festival in
which work is permitted. The
feast was established according
to the Book of Esther by Mor-
decai as a reminder of Gods
protection of His people in Israel.
The holiday recalls the evil
plans of the villain Hamen to
destroy the Jews in ancient
Persia. They were saved by the
Lord through the efforts of
Esther and Mordecai.
The word Purim means
"LoU," so called after the lots
cast by Hamen in order to
determine the month in which the
slaughter was to take place (14th
of Adarl. In the days of the
Hasmoneans. the holiday was
known as the "Day of Mordecai."
During leap years when a 13th
Month is added to the Hebrew
Lunar Calender it is celebrated on
the second month of Adar. The
Jews of Shushan. the capital of
Persia. celebrated their
deliverence on the 15th day of
Adar becoming known as
Shushan Purim. All cities that
were surrounded by walls dating
back to the days of Joshua, also
celebrate Purim on the 15th day
Thus. Punm is celebrated in
Jerusalem on the 15th but in Tel-
Aviv on the 14th of Adar
Rabbi Yaseh said. Purim can
never fall on Monday or on
Saturday If it falls on Monday.
Yom Kippur will fall on Sunday
If Punm is on Saturday then
Yom Kippur will fall on Friday
Because both days are rest days
in which no manner of work is
permitted. hardships would
ensue The dead, for example
could not be buried until 2 days
later. Hence we never allow two
such davs of Rest to follow each
other (Rosh Hashana 20a|.
The main highlight of Purim is
the reading of the Book of Esther
with a special cantillation (tune).
It is customary to spread the
Megillah (scroll) and fold it over
before reading to make it look
hke a letter (Esther 9261.
A noise maker called a
"Grager" is used whenever the
name of Hamen is read or the
names of his ten sons. This
custom is based on Proverbs "the
names of evil people shall be
obliterated." thus we make a loud
noise to obliterate the mention of
Hamen s name
There was a custom to inscribe
Hamen's name on two stones and
beat them together as if to erase
the name of Hamen. (Orech
Chaim 690) Eventually this
evolved into the present custom
of making noise at the mere
mention of his name.
We do not recite the Hallel on
Purim for the following reasons:
1-The miracle occured outside
the land of Israel (Chutz
2-In the time of Esther and
Mordecai we were not freed
completely: the Jews were still
slaves of the king of Persia.
There is another interesting
reason why we don't say Hallel
on Purim The hero Mordecai is
of the family of King Saul who
was life time opponent of King
David, author of Hallel (Psalms).
It would not be right or proper to'
sing songs (Hallel) composed by
an opponent, (source escapes me
at this time).
We eat a three cornered cake
stuffed with a fruit filling, called
Hamen -Tash The following
reasons are given:
1 Hamen-Tash has 3 corners
which represent our fathers
Abraham. Isaac and Jacob
through whose merits we were
saved. i.Midrashi
2-11 represents the three
cornered hat which Hamen wore
(Little Napolean I
3-Hamen-Tash is derived from
the word "Tash-Kocho." many
Hamen's strength continue to
become weak through the ages.
(Maasa Alfisl.
The name of God is not found
in the Book of Esther" (Megilla)
for the following reasons:
1 Eighty-five Sages of whom
30 were prophets struggled to
comply with Esther's request of
Inscribe me for generations ". to
incorporate the book amongst the
Holy Writings. (Aviv Ausof)..
also (Megillah 7).
2-The miracle of Purim was a
natural occurrence because of
repentence, therefore God's name
:s left out (Even Ezrah)
3-One does not use the name of
God in a letter or contract, for
when read or redeemed it would
be thrown away. The Megillah
was at first written as a letter to
all nations therefore God's name
had to be left out for fear of
destruction and oblitering of
God's name (Rosh Hashana)
It is also customary to send
portions (Shaluch Manos) to
friends on Purim and gifts to the
poor. One sends at least two
portions of food to a friend and
gives money to at least two poor
A special festive meal is eaten
on Purim afternoon, instead of on
the Eve of Purim, the reason
being, on the Eve of Purim we
read the Megilla and imbibe in
strong drink.
Rava said, "A man is obliged
to drink so much wine on Purim
that he becomes incapable of
knowing whether he is cursing
Hamen or blessing Mordecai."
(Megillah 7b).
On Purim morning we are
occupied with packaging Purim
gifts (Shaluch Manos) so the only
time we have to eat the Feast Of
Purim is in the later afternoon.

In Unification Suit
The Appellate Division has
affirmed a N.Y. Supreme Court
decision dismissing a libel action
brought by the Unification
Church against the author and
publisher of a book that called
church indoctrination techniques
a form of brainwashing, the
American Jewish Congress
reported this week.
Nathan 7. Dershowitz of the
Congress, who served as attorney
for Dusty Sklar. author of "Gods
and Beasts: The Nazis and the
Occult." hailed the ruling as "a
significant victory for freedom of
the press."
Sklar and her publisher had
been sued for $4 million by the
Unification Church in the libel
The suit was dismissed by
State Supreme Court Justice
Edward J. Greenfield last Jan. on
the grounds that "the complaint
is based on statements reflecting
the author's opinion and that no
issue of fact as to knowledge of
falsity or reckless disregard of
the truth has been shown to
the very nation which at Nurem-
berg demanded that individual
Germans refuse to perform their
military duties because they were
immoral duties and which, under
the Carter administration, will
send such refuseniks to long
terms of imprisonment?
The contradiction is dear, how
to reconcile its elements far less
so. But the question here is not
that we will not, in America,
practice what we preached at
Nuremberg. The question is how
Nuremberg bears on Iran.
The answer is self-evident. As
a price for the release of our
hostages, the Iranians are
demanding a statement of
national guilt for the alleged
crimes performed under the
Shah. And in the light of Nurem-
berg we can no longer argue that
individually we were not
responsible for carrying the
crimes out.

He was cited for his lifelong research in the field

Prof. Sadan, who is Emeritus Professor of
Yiddish Language and Literature, is one of
Israel's leading writers, editors and translators.

work since his immigration to Israel in 1925.
The rising prices of oil and other sources of
energy will cause the United States to "suffer

at a session of an Anti-Defamation League of

Robert R. Nathan, chairman of a Washington
consulting firm bearing his name, said that
double-digit inflation will likely continue for the
coming year unless the nation reduces its
dependence on imported oil "especially oil from
the somewhat unstable Middle East."
The Exxon Education Foundation has made a
grant of $25,000 to Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion to provide support for a
symposium on ethics and corporate responsibility
which the college will conduct in the Brookdale
Center, its new home in the Washington Square
area of New York City.
The symposium, said Dr. Alfred Gottschalk,
Hebrew Union College president, who announced
the grant, is part of a program designed to focus
attention on the ethical dimensions of public
issues and problems and to apply historical and
philosophic insights drawn from religious
teachings to them.

Kollek Says Gov't. Blind
To Need of Jerusalem Arabs
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem has accused Israeli
governments, past and present,
of shelving the problem of the
country's minorities and charge
that Israel has been "miserly" in
giving the Arabs residents of
Jerusalem their rights.
Meeting with the Board of
Governors of the American
Jewish Committee, Kollek said it
would be absurd for 100,000 East
Jerusalem Arabs to be excluded
from the political rights to be
granted other West Bank
residents under the projected
autonomy scheme. "Another
solution must be found" for
them, he said.
HE DEPLORED the fact that
the rights of Jerusalem Arabs
are, to this day, not enshrined in
law but as with the right to
teach Jordanian school curricula
were a matter of ad-
ministrative practice that could
easily be reversed.
Kollek has long been ad-
vocating a "borough" system for
Jerusalem in which the Arab
areas would enjoy a measure of
local self-government. A
municipal delegation is presently
in London studying the borough
