Federation Makes Record Allocations
The Tampa Jewish Federation
board of directors has made
record allocations for local,
national and overseas programs
for the 1980 calendar year.
According to Joel Karpay,
budget and allocations chairman,
"Raising the monies needed to
fund the many and diverse
programs of the Federation is a
massive undertaking, but
deciding how to allocate these
limited funds in the face of rising
costs and growing needs is
equally as difficult."
Every effort has been made to
meet the minimum requirements
of each of the Federation
agencies; however, the
allocations were unable to take
into consideration new programs
and expanded needs.
The 1980 budget was based on
an estimated campaign result of
Israel (United Jewish Appeal)
was allocated $271,461. Local
agencies were allocated $315,539
and national agencies will receive
$15,000. Any additional monies
raised over $700,000 (up to
$85,000) will be allocated to
Israel. Sould this occur, Israel
will have received 55.4 per cent of
the total 1980 allocations.
These are the allocations made
to the local agencies: Tampa
Jewish Community Center,
$80,000; Tampa Jewish Social
Services, $60,920; Russian
Resettlement. $17,383; Hillel
TJF Approves
Cuban Relief Funds
The board of directors of the Tampa Jewish Federation
proved an expenditure of $100 to the Cuban Committee of
npa for aid in the relief of the Cuban refugees.
The check will be presented this week by Federation
-iident Ben Greenbaum to representatives of the Tampa
ban Relief Committee. The funds will be used to help provide
>d, clothing and shelter for Cuban refugees who have recently
ived in Tampa.
Carl Zielonka, chairman of the Federation Community
Rations Committee (CRC) stated, "We are concerned with the
pfare of all human beings and their desire to live their lives in
edom. We have been struggling to free our brothers from
nmunist oppression and know the joy you feel to have some
our own released from Cuba."

While the 1980 Tampa Jewish
Federation / UJA Campaign
reached an all time high, the
increase has been offset by in-
flation. Campaign final estimates
put the 1980 Campaign around
the $750,000 mark.
"This will only enable us to
meet mimimal requirements,"
Mich*3l L. Levine pointed out.
"It is apparent that some very
important Jewish services simply
will not be available in the year
ahead." Levine indicated that
every effort will be made to
contact every possible con-
tributor to explain what is at
stake for our Jewish community.
The Budget and Allocations
Committee will reconvene in June
to establish the budgeting
process for the next 12 months.
This is being done to change the
allocation year from January to
July, so that future allocations
will be based upon actual
campaign results.

reaction to the Hebron attack,
Prime Minister Begin spoke
against hasty measures. One
should adopt a considerate and
balanced policy, he said, which
would enable co-existence with
the Arabs and the successful
conclusion of the autonomy talks.
Weizman accepted the
responsibility for the security
policy in the territories. But he
warned that Israel should not
deviate from working toward an
agreement with Egypt, which
was important for the security of
Israel and the breaking of its
isolation inthe region.
He suggested that the
autonomy talks should take place
"in greater paces," while
ascertaining the security in-
terests of the country. He
suggested that the policy in the
territories should be one of "the
righteous thrive, the wicked
suffer." Details will be worked
out this week by the Ministerial
Defense Committee.
Weizman was expected to
deliver a statement this week in
the Knesset on the Hebron attack
on behalf of the government.
Following the statement, the
Knesset was to conduct a general
debate on the subject thus
opening its summer session.
NINE OF the Hebron
wounded were still hospitalized
Sunday at the Hebrew
University Hadassah medical
center in Jerusalem. President
Yitzhak Navon visited the
wounded holding long chats
with every one of them.
Tal ing to reporters, Navon said
that the policy in the territories
should not be influenced by such
acts of violence.
In New Jail
Sharansky Gets Okay
To See His Family
Anatoly Sharansky, who was
recently moved from Chistipol
Prison to the Perm labor camp
some 600 miles from Moscow,
was finally granted permission to
be visited by his mother and
brother, the first time since
August, 1979 and only the third
time since his arrest in March,
1977, it was reported by the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry and the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews.
The visit, however, was cut
from three days to one as punish-
ment for Sharansky's "violation
of rules" in Chistipol Prison.
IDA MILGROM, his mother,
and Leonid Sharansky, his
brother, reported after returning
home to Moscow that Anatoly is
working as an apprentice lathe
operator, eight hours a day, six
days a week at a camp machine
shop. He is living in a barracks
with other prisoners, some of
whom are "politicals" as he is,
and others who were Nazi
Mrs. Milgrom said her son told
her that the grim labor camp,
where hunger is pervasive, was
still "freedom" in comparison
with the notorious Chistipol
Anatoly Sharansky
Prison where he could not even
see the daylight.
She said he spends his spare
time walking in the camp com-
pound. Mrs. Milgrom said
Anatoly told her, "I haven't yet
time to become a member of the
'labor collective,' but for the first
time in three years I now sleep in
a bed with two bedsheets and am
in a room with natural daylight."
When he was transferred from
Chistipol he was forced to leave
behind almost all his belongings,
including his books, Mrs.
Milgrom said.

WAACSNow Eligible for VA Benefits
Thousands of women who were
members of the World War II
Women's Army Auxiliary Corps
will be eligible for certain
Veterans Administration benefits
as a result of recent Department
of Defense recognition of their
WWII military service.
V A chief Max Cleland said the
potential eligibility includes
medical treatment, home loan
guarantees, pension and payment
of some burial expenses.
The change in status was
granted to former WAACs who
chose not to enter the newly-
created Women's Army Corps
when it was established as a part
of the Army in 1943.
About 75 percent of the
WAAC force went into the new
military unit so they have had
veteran status since leaving
military service.
The Defense Department
action confers the same status on
the 25 percent of the WAACs
who remained civilians when the
Women's Army Corps was
Cleland said regulations
covering applications from
former WAACs for VA benefits
are now being written and will be
forwarded to VA field offices as
soon as possible.
He said former WAACs
wishing to establish their
eligibility for VA benefits must
first apply to the Army for an
honorable discharge Application

Following receipt of a
discharge, the women should
contact a benefits counselor at
the nearest VA regional office.
Regional offices are located
in each state and toll-free
numbers are available to
each office They may be found
under the U.S. government
listing in telephone directories.
Cleland said VA cannot pay
benefits to the former WAACs
for periods prior to Nov. 23. 1977,
the date of the legislation that
paved the way for their veteran
This precludes payment for
such World War II programs as

under the same legislation.

A Dangerous Move
The Hillsborough County School Board, by a narrow
margin, has seen fit to approve a decision to integrate
"Scientific Creationism" into the secondary school
system's Biology curriculum.
What this does is to emphasize how wrong are those
of us who thought otherwise that the struggle against
Darwinian evolution died with the famous Scopes
"monkey trial" back in the early 1920s.
Worse than that, it is a frontal assault upon the
principle of separation of church and state to which this
nation is committed by constitutional amendment.
There is no point here in arguing for Darwinian
theory on the elevation of man from lower species through
principles of survival of the fittest and natural selection.
Darwin after all. still is theoretical, as are Albert Ein-
But there is a clearly monumental point in arguing
against the Hillsborough School Board's decision to teach
"Scientific Creationism." The phrase, itself, is a con-
tradiction in terms, for "Creationism" teaches that the
account of the origins of the universe as it appears in the
Bible is correct beyond dispute, and therefore "scientific."
In fact, scientific method is empirical it learns and
then teaches by the examination of carefully-analyzed
evidence. In modern philosophical terminology, it is
known as a posteriori reasoning, or reasoning after the
fact (of examination, experimentation, analysis of
Those who counter Darwinism with "Creationism"
offer the Bible as the revealed Word of God and therefore
not to be disputed. As they see it. the fundamentalist view
of creation as presented in the Bible must be accepted a
priori a reasoning process that relies on metaphysical
speculation rather than empirical methodology.
In essence. "Creationism" is ontology, the acceptance
of the Divine Prime Mover on the basis that that is in-
disputably how the universe came to be. The famous St.
Anselm ontological principle, promptly rejected as absurd
by another far more distinguished church father. St.
Thomas Aquinas, was that God is because one can not
imagine God not being, and therefore he is.
We emphasize these theological notions to demon-
strate just how dangerous it would be if the Hillsborough
County School Board ruling is in fact implemented.
Biology classes would be taught, as conceived by the
Board, by evangelical persons with an eye toward making
ontology Scientific." which even Aquinas rejected.
In our view, this sort of teaching rightly belongs in
the church, not in school, for those who want to continue
to tvlieve it If permitted into Hillsborough's schools, it
would serve as model for a similar move currently in the
Florida State legislature to implement the program in
schools throughout the st.iu
W have no doubt that its constitutionality would be
successfully challenged ultimately The Tampa Bay
\rva s director of the National Conference of Christians
lews, Robert H Kittreil. is correct when he declares
that in the name of fundamentalist or evangelical in-
terpretations of Biblical truths in the name of political
conservatism, our society is being threatened with an
unintentional and insidious kind of deterioration."
Our society, warns Kittreil. is "at its best ... a
pluralistic society, both religiously and politically. One
interpretation of truth need never be categorically con-
veyed as the final truth for everyone else Neither truth
nor wisdom can be so narrowly defined."
Further, we agree with the Synagogue Council of
Tampa, which has passed a resolution calling the in-
troduction of a Creationism" course into the public
school s>stem as a clear intrusion upon the separation of
church and state principle
Perhaps the sharpest words against this flagrant
American practice comes from the Tampa
Jewish Federation Teaching of material traditionally
rvg-arded as in the realm of religious doctrine in the public
schools doaa not belong as a part of the science
curriculum In addition, to offend those whose beliefs do
not include the literal interpretation of the Bible is an
improper function of the public school system (which

Trial by Jury Goes on Trial
THE CASE against Johnny L.
Jones has national implications
His guilt or innocence seems, in
the media, to be an irrelevance.
At issue is what one com-
mentator, a former editor of
mine, pinpoints as the essential
tragedy: "the fact that a man's
lifelong reputation was being
This is sheer bourgeois sen-
timentality. Of course, it is
painful to see a man with Jones'
achievements and reputation go
down the drain. But the issue
ought not to be tears for the
result; it ought to be dismay at
the cause.
WHO PULLED the plug?
Certainly, it was Johnny L Jones
himself, and his glittering and

needed gold plumbing to assure
himself that the various elements
in the listing of his achievements
were real.
It is almost as if he needed the

If you want to talk about the

think in terms of Greek tragedy:
the tragic flaw in Jones' ap-

evidence for metaphysical
achievement; the reversal of
fortune in the direction of his life

achievements on their own terms

Draft Resolution S/13827, 29
February 1980. I do not wish to
enter into a deep analysis of the
Resolution at this time the
White House has enough ad-
visors for that. Instead I would
like to pose some basic areas of
concern regarding America's
favorable vote.
After all is said concerning a
breakdown in communications
between the White House and
U.N. Ambassador Donald
McHenry one thing is clear;
Sol Linowitz told Ex-Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance the Thursday
before the U.N. vote that any
vote other than "NO" would
jeopardize the "peace talks" and
the President's position among
American Jews. Was this in-
formation known to the powers
that be?
What confuses me is a feeling
of "flip-flop" politics using Israel
as the pancake. Either the U.S.
has a clear policy and sticks to it
or it does not, and does not cloud
the issue by asserting it does. On
the one hand, President Carter
stated "opposition to an in-
dependent Palestinian State, on
the other voted in favor of the
aforementioned U.N. Resolution
which incorporates the phrase
"Palestinian and other Arab
territories," which was also used
in resolution 446, to which the
United States abstained, pre-
judges the outcome of
negotiations on the sovereignty
of the disputed regions.
CAN WE forget that less than
one year ago, Sept. 3-7, 1979, the
Conference of Heads of State,
also known as the Government of
the Non-aligned Countries, met
in Havana to vote on the Final
Declaration Article 237 which
"The Heads of State or
Government reaffirmed that
racisim, including Zionism,
racial discrimination, and
especially apartheid, con-
stitued crimes against
humanity and represented
violations of the United
Nations Charter and of the
Universal Declaration of
Human Rights."
Eighty-nine governments
endorsed this formulation. So far
as is known, not one state even
protested this obscenity, in-
cluding the U.S.
Although my anxiety is
heightened by the U.N. mistake,
one issue is painfully clear; the
U.S. has no clear, thorough
policy on Israel. Oh, we have bits
and pieces her, and there, such
as the President's statement that
as Americans, support for Israel
"will continue not just for 30
years, but forever." But
statements like this present false
optimism or put another way,
optimism without substance.
WE YOU; Mr. President,
must be clear and unwavering
regarding what "we" say. The
Soviets invade Afghanistan, the
greatest crime since WWII and
three weeks later you enter SALT
II negotiations. The government

it is the greatest asset I have, but

hopeful as I know we can be
active, for hope without action
breeds false hope. What we need

simply question God about our
people an we will resume normal

This unheard of. At times I

Focus On Jewish Community Blood Bank
The Jewish Community Blood
Bank. To those who know about
it. it's taken for granted.
Everyday common knowledge.
But not everyone knows that
such a service even exists.
During the Israel Independence
Day Celebration, the mobile unit
from the blood bank parked at
the Jewish Community Center
and collected 13 pints of blood.
In reality, no one in the Tampa
Jewish community should ever
"pay" for blood. Through a
system of credits, the cost of the
blood is canceled by donations
credited to the Jewish com-
munity account.
Let's understand from the
start that everywhere the term
"Blood Bank" is used it refers to
an institution such as the
Southeast Florida Blood Bank
and not to those operations along
Kennedy Boulevard which collect
blood from the sick, diseased and
alcoholics who sell their blood.
Sue Waltzer has been chairman
of the Jewish Community Blood
Bank since 1973. She is assisted
by Mimi Weiss. According to
Waltzer. the Jewish Community
Blood Bank was begun in 1965
with Nat Rothberg recorded as
the first donor. "Now it is
handled through the Tampa
Jewish Social Service office.'' she
added. "To request a credit
transferred to your account all it
takes is a phone call to the TJSS
officers, or to me at 932-8138.
"Anyone Jewish may receive
unlimited blood credits." Waltzer
explained. "Usually this is
handled when the patient is
released from the hospital and
the account is ready for billing.

Letter to
the Editor
EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
On Thursday, April 17. at the
Tampa Theater, we were
privileged to hear Isaac Bashevis
Singer. It is not often that a
Nobel Prize winner, much less a
Jewish Nobel Prize winner,
comes to Tampa.
Mr. Singer was delightful and
those who attended were
thoroughly entertained. We were
disappointed by the limited
representation of the Tampa
Jewish community. We wondered
why such an event was not
widely publicized in the Jewish
community in general and in The
Jewish Floridian.
Joan and Bob Goldstein
Editor's note: Mr. Singer's visit
to Tampa and the University
of South Florida was moved up
from the original date
scheduled. Due to The Jewish
Floridian observing the
holiday of Passover, we were
unable to make the change to
accommodate the new
schedule. We also regret not
being able to supply this in-

House. RSVP by Thursday, if

most cases the family sees that
the credits are quickly replaced."
The most valuable item is the
blood, not the money.
In the world of community
blood bank accounts, the magic
phrase is "30 30 account." This
indicates that the organization
has assured the donation of 30
percent of its membership or 30
pints per year. This is the Jewish
Community Blood Bank's
commitment. To date, this ac-
count has an accumulated credit
of 217 pints.
Robert W. Linabury. director
of group development for the
Southeast Florida Blood Bank,
explained that the need is 130
pints per day. 365 days a year
just to meet the regular, normal
usage. "Last year we averaged
the intake of 120 pints a day.
With our increased population
and the increase in the uses of
blood and its components, our
need always increases," he con-
tinued. Kidney dialysis accounts
for 10-15 percent of the blood's
"Less than 5 percent of the
population, nationally, donate,
but over 95 percent could,"
Linabury said. It is up to the
group to release the units they
have accumulated. "It is the
donations which are important."
according to Linabury.
Congregation Beth Israel has a
blood bank program under the
direction of Lou Oditz. He said
that they have an account with
121 pints of blood to its credit.
"We recently released 17 pints
for the three-year old grandchild
of one of our members. And
several times we have made blood
available to needy persons who
were not members of our
congregation." said Oditz.
Dr. Bob Haas, president of
Congregation Schaarai Zedek
Brotherhood. undertook the
development of a Brotherhood
blood bank program this year.
Also involved in the establish-
ment of this program was Dr.
Irwin Browarsky.
"The time delay in fresh blood
can be critical," said Dr. Haas.
"Should there ever be a really
critical situation in our area,
there would be a terrible problem.
This is the time for extra
donations." He went on to ex-
plain that this was a 30 30
program and the Brotherhood
hoped to include the Sisterhood
and later the entire congregation
in the project.
The Brotherhood's first donor
day in January took in 42 pints.

The most interesting figure is
^bron Mayor Fahed Kawasme,

bendy the champion of the
tst extreme attacks on the

fluential Sheikh Mohammad
|i Al Jaabari as the Mayor of
ebron. Until then he served as
agricultural engineer in the
i-ilian administration, which is

He was elected as Mayor in

js the Mayor of Hebron for 40
and was noted for his
Dse cooperation with the
lilitary Government resigned
ae to old age. The most likely
fcrson to succeed him was Dr.
imad Natshe, who was

>ys before the elections.

oderate appearance, certainly
ve the impression that he
buld continue this way.
Jin fact, Kawasme lived up to

^ginning of his term. He knew
w to maneuver between the
essures of the extremists and
Israelis. Military Govern-

smng of the Camp David ac-
prds in 1978, Kawasme became a

Jommittee which was set up
the leading body of the Arabs
the administered territories.
*>r months he continued to
|opt a moderate line, facing
ticism by other mayors such as
Jarim Khalaf of Ramallah and
f assam Shaka of Nablus.
He became one of the more
influential leaders in the Com-
mittee which gradually
became politically independent
from the PLO. Contrary to the
past, the leaders no longer
followed blindly the dictations
from the PLO. This became
apparent when the National
Guidance Committee recom-
mended a mass resignation by all
mayors to protest the intended
deportation of Shaka last year
contrary to the advice given by
Arafat, who feared the Israelis
might use the opportunity to get
rid of all PLO supporters in the
West Bank municipalities.
Only two months ago did
Kawasme adopt the most ex-
treme line. Following the
government decision to settle
Jews in Hebron, Kawasme
presided over a protest rally in
Hebron in which he made strong
anti-Israeli comments. He said at
that rally that he would rather be
deported than see Jews settle
HE SAID he would support

properties in Hebron only after

their homes in Jaffa, Haifa and

Mohammad Hassan Milhim,
the second deportee, was the
Mayor of Halhoul, a town near
Hebron, since 1976. Milhim, with
a European appearance, fluent in
English, was often interviewed
by the foreign media here
always adopting a rejectionist
view toward Israel. He came from
an educated family, known for
extremist views. His brother, Dr.
Mustapha Milhim, was deported
eight years ago for incitement
and anti-Israel propaganda.
Milhim, too, was a member of
the National Guidance Com-
mittee, but was always con-
sidered one of the more ex-
tremists there, together with
Khalaf and Shaka.
THE THIRD deportee was
Sheikh Rajeb Buyud Tamimi, the
Kadi (religious judge) of Hebron.
Tamimi was considered a leading
religious figure, but he was not
known as a political figure.
However, he was involved in
several clashes with the
authorities. He involved himself
mainly with internal activities,
such as debates with the local
leftist groups in Hebron and

Judaism's View
Of Evolution
Dedicated to Eldra Solomon
and P. William Davia
Co-Author, of "The World of Biology "
"Were the aky of parchment made,
A quill each read, each twig and blade,
Could we with ink fill aea and brook, .
Were every man to write a book,
The marvelous story
Of God'a great glory
Would still remain untold.
For He, moat high, the earth and aky
Created alone of old,
Without fatigue or weary hand,
He spoke the word, He breathed command
The world and all therein dwell.
Field and meadow, fen and fell,
Mount and sea,
In six days He
With life did them inspire.
("Akaamuth" Meir Ben Isaac}
When I was asked by my daughter Eldra (the biologist) to
state Judaism's viewpoint on creation, there came to my mind
the Aramaic poem. Akdamuth. On the first day of Shavuoth
(Pentecost), after the Kohen (Priest) has been called to the
Torah. this vivid and moving poem is read before calling anyone
else to the Holy Torah. These words very aptly describe the
situation when one tackles the subject of creation:
"Could we with ink the ocean fill
Were every blade of grass a quill
Were the world of parchment made
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above.
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor would the scroll contain the whole.
Though stretched from sky to sky."
There are many arguments given for and against creation
and or evolution.
It is not my purpose to take sides in this column but to
state some of the arguments and then give you that which is
written by our Sages in our books.
Some of the points scored by the evolutionary theorists are:
The theory of evolution states that all organisms have
gradually developed from a common, simple ancestral type This
theory la based on morphology, biochemistry, fossil records and
mJcroevoiutionary processes l,et us examine each one of these
separate, bearing in mind that I am not a scientist or a biologist
but an merely quoting from books and articles written on the
Morphologic: Comparing anatomy of organisms, we ob-
serve patterns of structural similarity These'can be explained
by degrees of genetic kinship. For example, all vertebrates have
the same pattern of circulation, nerves, muscles and bones. As
we go up on the scale and reach mammals, the structural
complexity increases. Since all vertebrates have things in
common, therefore they must have had a common ancestry.
Biochestry: All organisms employ DNA. the citric acid
cycle, cytochromes etc. Since all living things are similar in their
biochemistry, they must have developed from a common an-
cestor}-. Furthermore, the blood sera of morphologically similar
animals are closely related as to their protein structure. The
sequence of 300 amino acids in hemoglobin is identical in man in
the chimpanzee.
Fossil Records: Approximately one foot of sediment is
deposited every 5.000 years. By measuring the depth at which
fossils are found in a deposit, one arrives at their estimated age.
There is also another method of determining the age of
fossils, radioactive dating. All radioactive elements decay into
stable products at specific, constant rates. This decay rate is not
changed by temperature or pressure.
Also another method is called the potassium-argon method.
It is based upon the decay of radioactive potassium 40 into
argon and calcium. The theory is that potassium 40 has a 'life
of 1.3 billion years.
Fossils less that 30,000 years old can be tested for age with
a radiocarbon method. The i life of carbon 14 is 5,568 years.
Whole sequences of fossil organisms can be traced throughout
time, undergoing evolutionary change.
Microevolution: We find bacterial populations have become
resistant to antibiotics, flies and mosquitos have become
resistant to pesticides. Microevolution has been seen in
relatively short span of years in plant species, rabbit and house
mouse. If a species can evolve, why not a whole genus?

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Behar-Behukotai |
BEHAR The Israelites were a farming nation. In order to
keep the land from falling into the hands of a few people, making
slaves of many, Moses ordained two basic laws.
One was the law of Shemitah, or the Sabbatical Year, a year
of rest for the land to prevent it from being worn out. This came
every seventh year, and whatever grew during that year was free
to all.
The other was the law of Yovel, or the Jubilee Year, which
came each 50th year. In that year, every Israelite slave was set
free, and all the land which had been sold was to be restored to
the hands of the original owner or to his heirs.
The Lord gave these laws to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying:
"For six years shall you sow your field and gather your crops,
but the seventh year shall be a year of rest for the land.
"You shall count 49 years. Then, on Yom Kippur, the shofar
shall be blown, and you shall declare the 50th year holy.
"Then you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land to all
the inhabitants thereof."
With these words did the Lord command the Israelites to
respect the rights and the privileges of their fellow men.
(Leviticus 25:1-26:2)
BEHUKOTAI This sidra brings to a close the third of the
Five Books of Moses the Book of Leviticus. In it, the Children
of Israel are told that if they obey God's laws they will prosper
and be well. On the other hand, should they stray from the path
of righteousness, disorder and unhappiness would follow.
Over and again the Lord reminded His people of basic rules.
"Make no idols for yourselves; nor shall you set up statues to
bow down to. For 1 am the Ixird your God.
"If you live by My laws. I will send the rains at the right
time, and the land shall yield its harvests and the trees their
"1 will be good to you and make you fruitful and mult inly you
For 1 brought you out of Egypt and broke your chains of slavery
and made you tree men.
"But if you will not listen to Me. you will live in confusion
and tear Your enemies will eat your harvest, and they will
conquer you. You will be scattered among the nations.
"Not until you observe My laws again will I remember My
promise to your ancestors Only then will I be good to you."
These were t he commandments which the Lord commanded
Moses tor the Children of Israel on Mount Sinai. ILevitiau

was a tragedy, that public
opinion must be rallied to reverse
the jury because, sui generis, how
can "a handsome and powerful
figure" be guilty? Or that a
handsome, powerful, Black figure
must not be judged guilty?
HERE IS where the danger
lies, precisely here, in the public
statements of yahoos pandering
to an emotionally-stricken Black
community now indeed deprived
of a role model, but unwilling to
be critical of that model's tragic
flaw, incapable of saying, "We
put our money on the wrong

"The race was fixed."
If this is how Round Two is
shaping up, if racism is to be a
central issue in the attack now
shaping up on our judicial
process as it relates to favorite
minorities, then let those en-
couraging the attack also prepare
a defense against Dr. Jones' anti-
Semitic references to one of his
own attorneys in the tapes barred
by the court as evidence against
him in Round One.
It will be difficult, indeed, for a
bigot to plead that he has been a
victim of bigotry. Even though
Jews these days (if ever) hardly
qualify as a favorite minority.

Aharon Wertheimer, 44, a soldier
in the reserves, and two tourists
from the United States, Lisa

FOUR INJURED women were
released. They are Kineret

daughter of Kiryat Arba leader
Rabbi Moshe Levinger, who is
one of the women who have been
living at the old Hadassah

Meira Yahn-Daniela, 20, of
Kiryat Arba; and Gila Mintzer,
17, and Dafna Vantura, 20, both
of Bnei Brak. Also injured was
Eytan Arbel.
Wertheimer was guarding the
Hadassah building when the
attack started. "The people were
coming back from the Machpela
Svnagogue via the Hadassah
building," he said. "They were
singing Shabat songs. There were
many women and children. But

U.S. Says No To
Palestinian State
The Israel Mission to the
United Nations issued a state-
ment here, following the vote in
the Security Council on a reso-
lution calling for the establish-
ment of a Palestinian state,
declaring that the only way to
advance the cause of peace in the
Mideast is "through direct and
serious negotiations on the basis
of principles set up in the Camp
David framework."
The United States vetoed the
Tunisian-sponsored resolution,
while the four West European
members of the Council
France, Britain, Norway and
Portugal abstained. The
Soviet Union and the People's
Republic of China, along with the
eight other members of the
Council, supported the
the creation of an "independent
state in Palestine," for the Pales-
tinian people; called on Israel to
withdraw from all the territories
it took in June, 1967, "including
Jerusalem"; and affirmed the
right of the Palestinian refugees
to choose between peaceful re-
patriation and equitable compen-
sation for their property.
In its statement, Israel
charged that the debate on
Palestinian rights in the Council
"was launched with the purpose
of trying to obstruct the only
practical process for achieving
peace" in the Mideast the
Camp David agreements and
was designed to interfere with the
autonomy negotiations for the
Palestinians and undermine
Security Council Resolution 242.
Explaining the U.S. veto,
Ambassador Donald McHenry
told the Council before the vote
that the Camp David accords are
the only "politically viable
avenue available" for reaching a
Mideast settlement." No one has
been able to come up with a
working alternative," he added.
McHENRY SAID that if the
current negotiations between
Israel, Egypt and the United
States on autonomy are success-
ful, they will provide the Pales-
tinians in the West Bank and
Gaza with a real opportunity to
manage their own lives for the
first time in modern history.
He said that on an issue of
such importance for the world,
for the Palestinians and the
Israelis, they (the Palestinians)
should not be distracted by
approaches that offered no
prospect for making practical
Zehdi Labib Terzi, the PLO's
UN observer, told reporters after
the vote that a special session of
the General Assembly would be
sought. Western delegates,
however, are reportedly urging
that such a move be deferred
until after next month's summit
meeting of the European Eco-
nomic Community in Venice
which will discuss the Palestinian

included 24 men and six girls. As
soon as the women and children
entered the building and the last
group was approaching the
gate," the attack broke out,
Wertheimer said.
"Hell was everywhere," he
continued. "Hellish fire was
coming from opposite me. I had
no time to return the fire. I was
hit, stumbled and dragged myself
into the house where I was given
first aid." He said the firing was
so heavy and dense that he would
not have been able to do much.
"Everyone outside was hit by the
shower of lead and fire," he
explained. "It was hell."
Another eyewitness account
was given by Vantura. She said
as they were walking from the
Machpela Synagogue "it was
quiet in the streets. They were
deserted. Just as we reached the
gate of the Hadassah building we
heard shots from behind. We fell
face down and some even found
cover in the staircase of the
Hadassah building."
VENTURA said there was a
"second series of volleys and
explosions. Then we started to
treat the wounded." She said
passing vehicles were stopped
and those most seriously
wounded were put into them to
be taken to the hospital. Within a
short time ambulances arrived
and helicopters transferred the
most seriously wounded to three
hospitals in Jerusalem

Sweden is hosting two events of
particular significance to world
Jewry the international
tribunal in the case of Raoul
Wallenberg, held here May 1 to
4; and the bicentennial
celebration of the Jewish com-
munity of Goteborg, Sweden's
second largest city, to be held
May 9 to 12.
Elie Wiesel, chairman of
President Carter's Commission
on the Holocaust, led a large
delegation of Americans to the
Swedish capital for the hearings
to sitt new evidence regarding
Wallenberg, the Swedish
diplomat who rescued 30,000
Hungarian Jews from Hitler and
who has reportedly been held in
Soviet prisons for the past 35
years following his arrest by the
Red Army in 1945.
of jurists and Holocaust experts
met in Stockholm's People's Hall
for the tribunal. The participants
included, in addition to Wiesel,
Elizabeth Moynihan, head of the
American Committee to Free
Raoul Wallenberg; Gideon
Hausner, prosecutor of Adolf
Eichmann and chairman of the
Israel Free Wallenberg Com-
mittee; Dr. Andre Lvoff, Nobel
Laureate in medicine and head of
the French Wallenberg Com-
mittee; and Simon Wiesenthal,
the famed Nazi-hunter from
U.S. delegates to the hearing
included the co-chairpersons of
the American Wallenberg
Committee, Lena Biorck Kaplan
and Swedish-born Rabbi
Frederick Werbell. Annette
Lantos of San Francisco, a
Hungarian-born Jew who was
rescued by Wallenberg, also
attended, on behalf of the
Hungarian Jewish community in
the U.S.
Other panelists who heard
witnesses who have seen
Wallenberg alive in Soviet
prisons in recent years, included
Greville Janner, British Member
of Parliament and head of that
country's Wallenberg Com-
mittee; Pierre Gregoire,
president of the Luxembourg
Parliament; and Dr. Yuri
Novikov, a Soviet Jewish
psychiatrist now living in West
Germany. Names of the wit-
nesses have not been released as
yet, to protect them from
possible persecution.
THE FOUR days of hearings
were opened by Ingrid Garde
Widemar, Sweden's first woman
Supreme Court Justice and the
head of that country's
Wallenberg Committee. At the
conclusion of the hearings, there
was a nationwide television
broadcast of a new BBC
documentary about Wallenberg.
Currently, there is a four-day
celebration by Goteborg's small
Jewish community, marking 200
years of its existence, with
Sweden's King Carl Gustav and
Queen Sylvia personally at-
tending a reception and dinner at
the Messiah Synagogue. Naima
Thankus, president of the
community, has announced the
city of Goteborg will open a
special exhibit on Jewish history
in Sweden at the municipal
Other events include special
services at the synagogue, with
the participation of guests from
the Jewish communities of the
i U.S., Scandinavia and other
| parts of Europe, as well as those
representing the government of
Sweden and the rabbinate of the
Scandinavian countries.
A special guest will be Cantor
Joseph Malovany of New York
City's Fifth Avenue Synagogue,
who will sing both at the Sabbath
services and at a special recital in
Goteborg's Concert Hall.

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
John J. L'oeb (center), the investment banker who endowed the Pylon representing the State
of Rhode Island in the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Israel, is honored at a special ceremony
at the Touro Synagogue in Newport, R.I. Sen. Claiborne Pell (right) and John F. Kennedy,
Jr. (left), son of the late President, were the guest speakers.
Reform Jews Rap Chief Rabbinate
Legislation enacted by Israel's Knesset giving
the Chief Rabbinate sole authority to determine
who shall register Jewish marriages was assailed
this week by Reform Jewish leaders as "a
deliberate affront to the more than three million
Reform and Conservative Jews in Israel and
throughout the world."
Rabbi Roland B. Gittelsohn of Boston,
president of the Association of Reform Zionists of
America, said the new law, passed on March 19,
"undermines recent attempts by Israeli Reform
rabbis to be granted the right to perform mar-
riages by the Ministry of Religious Affairs."
In a statement asserting that "this officially-
sanctioned abridgement of religious freedom mars
the democratic character of Israel," Rabbi Gittel-
sohn declared: "Israel, the only Jewish State on
the face of the earth, is the only State in which
Reform and Conservative rabbis are prevented by
law from performing marriages the only nation
in which Jews are barred from being married by
the rabbi of their choice."
Henry Kissinger rose above ideological con-
siderations to help open the door to Communist
China, convinced the electorate that detente with
the Soviet Union was a realistic and necessary
approach and, in a demonstration of virtuoso dip-
lomacy, laid the groundwork for an Israeli-
Egyptian peace.
At the same time, he prolonged U.S. involve-
ment in the Vietnam War for almost four years,
dismissed as irrelevant the moral question of
human rights, and practiced an elitist foreign
policy that excluded Congress, the State Depart-
ment and the American people.
This contrasting assessment of one of the most
controversial figures in modern American history
is made in The Crises of Power, a new book that
examines United States foreign policy during the
Kissinger years.
Written by Brandeis University political
scientist Seyom Brown of Newton, who was a
senior fellow at the Brookings Institution when
Kissinger held public office, Crises of Power
recounts the often erratic course of American
foreign policy during the Nixon and Ford ad-
The Anti-Defamation League has urged the
U.S. Senate to adopt a bill to investigate the re-
location and internment of more than 100,000
Americans of Japanese ancestry during World
War II and to recommend "appropriate
remedies" if wrongs were committed.
In a letter dated Mar. 26 to the Senate Com-
mittee on Governmental Affairs, ADL national
director Nathan Perlmutter asked why Japanese
Americans were "singled out and deprived of
liberty and property without criminal charges or
"Was it necessary," he went on, "to insulate
Japanese Americans from the possible effects of a
wartime hysteria? Was it the consequence of
prejudice and discrimination against persons of
Japanese ancestry?''
The letter was addressed to Connecticut Sen.

mental Affairs Committee, in support of S. 1647,

been selected by the Carter administration to

An international symposium on intensive and
critical care medicine will be held in Haifa under
the auspices of the Technion Faculty of Medicine
on June 4 to 6. The symposium is sponsored by
the World Federation of Societies of Intensive
and Critical Care Medicine, Constitution

nationally-known authorities in the field from
Israel, Europe and America in order to provide
the participants with knowledge of recent
developments in the field.
The fight against discrimination, which made
substantial progress in this country in the 1960s
and 70s, may make further advances in the 1980s
if two conditions are met: The election of a
President, with his appointive power to the
Supreme Court, who is in sympathy with this
objective; and continued cooperative efforts by
Blacks, Hispancis, ethnics, Jews, women, and
This projection for the human rights outlook
for the next decade was offered by Samuel
Rabinove, director of the American Jewish Com-
mittee's Discrimination Division, in an address at
the recent Tennessee Human Rights Conference.
The two-day meeting, which was held in Mem-
phis, was sponsored by ten local and national
religious and communal organizations.
Next Move May Come
In Legislature
Continued from Page 1-
spoken to the board many times
in favor of teaching creationism
alongside evolution, said, "This
is the first county in the United
States that has made this
decision. It is a step forward for
the School Board of this county."
Rep. Bush had raised some
eyebrows last October when he
filed a bill that would require the
entire state to do pretty much
what the School Board mandated
for Hillsborough. Bush, a funda-
mentalist conservative, made
people take notice in March when
his bill squeaked through a
House education committee on a
slim 7-6 vote.
SINCE THEN, the Bush bill
has gone nowhere. It's now with
the House education appropria-
tions subcommittee, whose chair-
man, Rep. Richard Modes of
Tampa, isn't going out of his way
to help the bill along.
Modes doesn't agree with the
idea behind the Bush bill,
believing it may well violate the
constitutional separation of
church and state. He also doesn't
believe it's the Legislature's job
to set curriculum for the in-
dividual school districts.
Bush knows he may be at a
dead end in Modes' subcom-
mittee. But he believes he'll gain
the support of a majority of north
Florida conservative legislators
and hopes to bring the bill before
the full House as an amendment
to another education-related bill
perhaps one so important to
the education community that
creationism opponents can't
afford to vote against the bill for
fear of killing the other needed
Local Reaction
The Synagogue Council of
Tampa passed a resolution
against the teaching of creation-
| ism in the public schools. The
Council saw this as a clear in-
1 trusion of church and state. It
I was the feeling of the Council
that such a course might be
acceptable as an elective (perhaps
in the humanities) but that it
clearly did not belong in a
required science curriculum.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
noted that it "stands firmly in its
endorsement of the principle of
separation of church and state.
The church or synagogue is and
should be the teacher and inter-
preter of religious belief and doc-
trine for its own members," said
a Federation statement.
"TEACHING of material
traditionally Iregarded as in the
realm of religious doctrine in the
public schools is a violation of the
separation of church and state,"
said the Federation, "and does
not belong as part of the science
curriculum. In addition, to offend
those whose beliefs do not include
the literal interpretation of the
Bible is an improper function of
the public school system."
And from Robert H. Kittrell,
Bay area director of the National
Conference of Christians and
Jews: "My concern is that, for
some, in the name of funda-
mentalist or evangelical inter-
pretations of Biblical truths, and
for others, in the name of political
conservatism, our society is
being threatened with an un-
intentional and insidious kind of
"Why? Because America at its
best is a pluralistic society, both
religiously and politically," said
Kittrell. "One interpretation of
truth need never be categorically
conveyed as the final truth for
everyone else. Neither truth nor
wisdom can be so narrowly
"To attempt to make such the
case is to discount the bounteous
ways of the Divine, and to open
the unwanted and ugly way to
pogroms and other such destruc-
tion of the human spirit and
, body," Kittrell concluded.
