Why is it required to count

The answer is that basically
this is a requirement expressly"

requirement which he has to
observe every seven years when
the land must lie fallow
It is claimed by some that the

Thursday, May 21 and 22. For more on the holiday that
marks the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai See Page 8

Francine Klagsbrun, author of

who arrived in Tampa just over a year ago. Residing on Davis
Islands are Garri and Lilya. their 19-year-old son Alex and their
11 year- old daughter Tanya, who is in the fifth grade at Gorrie
Elementary School. Garri and Alex work together in their own
carpentry and cabinet making business. They specialize in both
American and European-styled cabinets. Lilya is a student at
the adult high school in the "English as a second language"
program. In their spare time, father and son enjoy woodcarving
and building scale model replicas. Tanya loves ballet and is a
budding young artist. We are so thrilled that the Dvorkins were
able to come to Tampa and make it their new home. As time

Security Council Votes SelectivelyAgi
UNITED NATION'S (JTAl

a resolution deploring acts of

both the exodus and the

Behind Sadat's Decision
We can second-guess Anwar Sadat's decision to
call a halt to the autonomy talks from now until
doomsday and come up with a thousand different
explanations, each with merit of its own.
One thing is not a matter of speculation: It
shows Mr. Sadat's bad faith. It demonstrates, more
than anything he has said or done since his so-called
"peace initiative," that he has more in mind than a
new Middle East world with Israel as an integral part
of it working in harmony with the Arab states of the
We have always believed that to be a pipe
dream, much to the consternation of other observers
who consider this hawkish, even unrealistic ally
hostile and aggressive.
But events speak for themselves. Even well
before the May 26 deadline for an autonomy agree-
ment, which both Sadat and Prime Minister Begin
long ago conceded is no more than a "target date,"
Egypt's leader has unilaterally called a halt to the
What is there to gain? The answer is obvious:
more pressure from Europe's cowardly satraps: more
pressure from President Carter, who has good inten-
tions but petrodiplomatic advice that steers him
inexorably in the direction of forcing Israel back into
her pre-1967 borders, which means into her 1948
The Master Plan
In effect. President Sadat, as he comes closer
and closer to retrieving his lost territories by nego-
tiation as the price for "peace," also becomes a
louder and louder spokesman for the Palestinian
Retrieving his lost territories was part one in
Sadat's master plan. Resumption of his role as leader
of the Palestinian world through his advocacy for a
Palestinian state is part two.
Lest there be doubt. Consider this week's most
startling revelation: the continued operation of an El
Fatah terrorist office in downtown Cairo at this very
moment. Object? To disorganize the Gaza Strip.
Is it conceivable that President Sadat doesn't
know about this?
Hardly not for the man of "peace" and of
"good will" and of "friendship" for Israel, who calls
a halt to the talks as a means of hastening the
process of calling a halt to Israel itself.
Impossible? We hope so. We fear not.

RAYMOND SHELTON is su-
perintendent of schools in Hills-
borough County. Fla.. where a
divinely-inspired school board
has ruled that 10th graders will
henceforward have to learn some-
thing called "scientific creation-
Apparently, the school board's
move is in retaliation against the
inclusion in the curriculum of
Darwinian theories on evolution.
The struggle against Darwin has
been waged by fundamentalist
Bible people since before Darwin
was ever born. Ask Galileo, who
was imprisoned by the Inqui-
sition. Ask Giordano Bruno, his
student, who was burned at the
stake for teaching la xienza
nuova among other things, the
heliocentric view of the universe.
This was only 400 years ago.
SHELTON, unlike the cretins
whose cue he roust take, has been
quoted by Susan Hemmingway
in the Tampa Times as declaring,
"The only way we can do this is
put creation and other theories of
creation in such a way that it Isicl

Will New Secretary of State
Remain a Pal of Israel as Before?
Committee of 25 Acts
To Conclude Campaign
By WOLF BLITZER
London Chronicle Syndicate
Vluskie, who ran un-
successfully as the late
Hubert Humphrey's Vice
Presidential running mate
in the 1968 presidential
campaign against Richard
Nixon, has always voted in
favor of foreign aid
legislation for Israel. 'He's
never been against Israel
on anything," a pro-Israel
source in Congress said.
The 9ource noted, however,
that in recent years, after Sen.
Muskie returned as a member of
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, the lawmaker rarely
adopted a leadership stance on
Israel or on Middle Eastern-
related issues. Sen. Muskie was
apparently selected by President
Carter because the Senator is
well-liked by his colleagues who
must confirm his nomination
following extensive hearings.
PRO-ISRAEL sources in
Congress and the American
Jewish community, as well as
Israeli diplomats in Washington,
are pleased by the Muskie
Several sources suggested that
he might serve as a counter-force
to the professional "Arabista" in
the State Department, who have
lately become increasingly more
assertive in their criticism of
But other diplomatic sources
insisted that no dramatic change
in U.S. policy should be expected
because President Carter, more
than anyone else in the
Administration. still largely
determines the shape of policy.
The naming of Sen. Muskie
came as a total surprise. He had
not been included on any of the
lists of speculative candidates.
Undersecretary of State Warren
Christopher, who was named as
acting Secretary following the
Vance resignation, is remaining
on the job.
Sen. Muskie sought the
nomination in the 1972 primaries
but dropped out of the race after

embarrassing exchange with

repudiated by President Carter.
Vance, however, was known to
have believed that U.S. support
for the resolution had been
largely justified, given U.S.
opposition to Israeli settlements.

was asked whether he thought
that the resignation of Vance
would affect the Israeli-Egyptian
peace talks. Weizman told
reporters that the process was
not dependent upon one person.
Later Weizman refused to answer
the question of an Israeli jour-
nalist about the wisdom of top
officials resigning in protest over
various governmental decisions -
an obvious reference to Weiz-
man's own threatened
resignations in the past.
The Arab rejectionist states
have castigated Sen. Muskie's
appointment. Radio stations and
newspapers recalled derisively
his statement soon after the Six-
Day War when as one of the first
prominent American politicians
to visit Israel he said on tour of
Golan: "If I were an Israeli I
would never give up a single inch
of this area."

SO MUCH for CIA appoint-
ments, now for tactics. Powers
revealed that the CIA's analysts
work on two basic principles
when assessing a world situation.
"First, is there a precedent? And
secondly, does it make sense? A
situation has to comply with both
conditions before the CIA will
definitely say that something is
going to happen in a particular
"That's one reason why the
CIA and the Mossad, of course,
so badly misjudged the events of
the Yom Kippur War. The
Agency is very poor at predicting
the future good at counting
but not at predictions."
Because of the CIA's contacts
with the Mossad, said Powers, it
had lost objectivity. "Its view of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization is as a wholly-
owned subsidiary of Russia. It
doesn't make sense to me that it
should be a completely-owned
creature of the Soviet Union. If it
were, it would not be effective at
a local level and the PLO is
demonstrably just that."
ASKED IF the Arab intel-
ligence agencies had the same
relationship with the CIA as the
Mossad, Powers said that the
nature and the degree of the liai-
sons were in direct proportion to
the diplomatic relations between
America and those countries.

Judaism's View of
By RABBI THEODORE BROD
Dedicated to Eldra Solomon and
P. William Davis, Co-Authors
of "The World of Bioloev
"IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN
AND THE EARTH."
To sum up the previous column, as it is done in The World
of Biology by W. Davis and E. Solomon.
"The vast majority of biologists consider the evidence to be
in favor of Evolution."
The principal theory of evolution was that proposed by
Darwin and Wallace. Their view comprised four main points as
to when it can happen:
1) Overproduction of offspring.
2) Variation among the offspring.
3) Inheritability of that variation.
4) Natural selection of the variants.
The major alternative to the concept of evolution as a
theory of origin is special creation. At the time of writing this
column, the Hills bo rough County School System became the
first in the state of Florida to approve teaching the creation as
well as evolution in the public schools. The board voted 4-3 to
put this in effect during the 1981 -1982 school year. This makes it
more important than ever to write about the other sideof thecoin,
special creation. First let us examine the arguments for it:
I'niformitarianism: Evolution assumes that events that
took place in the past happened at the same rate as today.
However, this assumption cannot be proven for we have no
recorded proof. We cannot prove that mutations occurred at the
same rate in the past as they do in the present. We cannot say
for sure that sedimentary rock has always been deposited at the
same rat* that is observed today, thus we cannot calculate with
certainty the age of fossils found in sedimentary rock.
Morphologic and Biochemical: Organisms that are mor-
phologically similar (structurally same) are not always
biochemically similar (chemical compounds and processes).
Mutations: The number of specific mutations needed to
make one radical change in an organism is large. Therefore, the
probability is small that mutations could develop a new phyla
(common origin, division).
Dating: To date fossils is not easy. Geologic events can
disturb the deposits of sedimentary rocks. The results of various
dating methods tend to conflict, if they are valid they should
agree, at least roughly. Even general evolutionary sequences can
be disturbed by unreliable dating. For example it is now taught
that the recent Australopithecus is geologically younger than
the oldest known Homo. How then can the former be considered
evidence for the evolution of Homo?
Fossils: Fossil evidence can be explained thus, that
organisms were created in a timed sequence. Another view is
that organisms were destroyed in a universal flood and that the
accumulation of distinct communities of fossil organisms in
separate strata may be ecological. For example: A marine
community might be buried by sedimentation, followed by a
swamp community, followed by a terrestrial lowland community
that washed over both of the previous ones.
"In the final analysis, evolution is inherently incredible. All
geologic time is actually too short to develop man from an
organic soup by Microevolutionary processes without the
purposeful intervention of the Creator." (Dr. William Davis)
At one time scientists thought that the rings inside of a tree
i were positive proof as to its age. But now they have found that
there are periods of rapid growth which don't coincide with the
rings of the tree.
Now, before I write what our Judaic Literature has to say
about the subject of creation-evolution. I wish to make certain
rabbinical attitudes on this subject clear.
We hold this to be true: that God created man with senses
and intellect to investigate the world around him. The religious
person can apply the scientific method of an understanding of
the natural world without threat to his faith. Similarly, a
scientist can be a believer without compromising his intellectual
integrity. The two outlooks can be complementary.
Scientific laws do not and cannot clash with the teachings
of the Bible at all. Science relies on the experimental method of
finding truth, a method useful, but imperfect. Religion is the
search for the values of ideal life. The unity of God denies all
dichotomies, even that of science and religion. The Bible is never
in conflict with scientific truths because God as revealed in
nature is the same as the God of revelation. In the words of the
Vilne Gaon (1720-1797), "If Man be ignorant of secular sciences,
he will be a hundredfoldimoreignorantof the Bible, for Torah and
science complement each other." (Hebrew translation of the Sue
Books of Euclid).

All of Judaism is based on
Torah: without Torah there is no
Judaism. The ark with the Torah
contained inside stands "front
and center" in every synagogue.
The reading and interpretation of
Torah is the central core of
Shabbat services. We are a
people by virtue of Torah.
"Israel. God, and the Torah are
One" is a famous statement of
the Cabbalistic (mystic) tradition
of Judaism. This interwining of
God, Torah and Israel is

after Pesach. It is the con-

the CLIMAX of the story that
starts with the Exodus.
Shavuoth SHOULD, therefore,
be the most important Jewish
festival of all. Just as Easter is
Christendom's holiest day
because it commemorates Christ-
ianity's primary assertion, it
should be the same for Shavuoth.
No other event, the Exodus
included, is as important in its
implications for Judaism as is the
receiving of the Torah on Mount
Jews disagree over the fac-
tuality of Moses' receiving the
Torah exactly the way described
within the Torah itself. Jews
cannot (or should not) disagree
over its importance. At the Sea of
Reeds we threw off human
bondage (to Pharoah). At Mount
Sinai we proclaimed our sense of
service to God and His ways.
Moses had said to Pharoah
speaking in God's name:
"Let my people go, that they
may serve Me" (God).
And it is that serving of God,
the many, changing, varied,
sometimes contradictory, always
difficult ways of serving God that
has brought Israel through the
traumas and the glories of our

past. It is the past's connection
with the present and future that
should command our attention.
The word TORAH means
"teaching" even more than
LAW. Law is part of Torah. but
only part. To the Jew, Torah is
the continuous process by which
Israel meets God.
In 1976, a statement was
issued by the Central Conference
of American Rabbis called "The
Centenary Perspective.' The
statement on Torah contained
therein speaks specifically for the
Reform movement, but it is a
statement to which all serious
Jews should subscribe.
"Torah results from the
relationship between God and the
Jewish people. The record of our
earliest confrontations are
uniquely important to us.

ARGUMENTS such as these
are pure bilge. Darwinian theory
on evolution and the origin of the.
species, first published in 1859, is
just that theory. It is a priori
reasoning applied to years of em-
pirical observation but without
the final stamp of scientific fa
posteriori) approval because Dar-
win's conclusions are incapable of
being tested on the basis of the
evidence he amassed.
A modern parallel is Einstein's
theory of relativity and that
famous equation of his, E -MC2.
Einstein's conclusions are just
that theories based on a priori
reasoning made more complex
than Darwin's because of Ein-
stein's use of the a posteriori con-
clusions of other workers in the
field, such as Michaelson, on
whose data about the speed of
light Einstein relied.
In this sense, relativity is a
more "scientific" statement of
physical relationships in nature
than are Darwin's. Still, both
remain theories. Still, there are
scientists in both fields, even
today, who keep trying to dis-
prove Darwin's and Einstein's
conclusions not on the basis
that the theories are anti-Bible,
although German anti-Semites in
1905, the year of the publication
of Einstein's theory, accused him
of destroying traditional (New-
tonian) concepts of time and
space, but that they don't go far
And still, there are theologians
who do the same thing today if
for different reasons, such as
Winslow and his Compatriots
corps, or the monkeys who chat-
tered at the Scopes trial in the
1920s. Strangely, such efforts at
disproof most often achieve just
the opposite of what they in-
tended; they strengthen the
theories rather than weaken
THAT IS why the Winslow-
ites want equal access / equal op-
portunity in the schools to spread
their gospel. They don't want to
take chances with it on the open
marketplace, where thus far
"scientific creationism," like
astrology, has clearly failed as a
serious body of thought.
I go into such lengthy di-
gression to demonstrate that the
two modern systems of "scien-
tific" thought which have so
completely revolutionized man's
contemporary view of the uni-
verse and systems of thought
aren't really scientific at all.
(A third is Freud's. All three
were subjected to gross ridicule
and abuse in the beginning
because they appeared to
diminish the view of man as
delineated in the Bible. It is
interesting to speculate on the
fate of Einstein, Darwin and
Freud were the Inquisition still in
its full Godly glory.)
The word, scientific, has ex-
tremely narrow meaning and rep-
resents an extremely narrow sys-
tem of inquiry. It runs contrary
to the popular view of science,
which equates science with
absolute and unchanging truth, a
notion that simply does not exist.
In fact, science operates on the
principle that something is true
only if it is subject to change
according to the creative evo-
lution of man's understanding.
Truth that is unchanging is not
true, but pure dogma.
But the public view of things
"scientific" is that, because they
are "ultimate," they are divine,
hence immune from question or
evolution. In this sense, "scien-
tific creationism" is supposed to
be an incontrovertible pre-
sentation of the creation as of-
fered in the Bible. But if E MC2
isn't scientific by definition, how
can a biblical account of creation
be scientific by definition?
If E~MC2, which is based on
the empirical conclusions of other
scientists, isn't scientific, how
can a mythic interpretation of the
beginning of human history be
THESE QUESTIONS aren't
open to debate concerning the
infallibility of divine knowlege as
an indisputable given. They are
predicated on philosophical
"Scientific creationism" is a
bamboozle intended to intimidate
to "prove" by scientific
method that the biblical account
of the creation is beyond a doubt
accurate; in comparison, Darwin,
as representative of man's
Limited human understanding, is
But you can't examine
evidence that doesn't exist- It is a
paradox that you can hope to
apply scientific method to dog-
matic statements no matter how
divine they are supposed to be.
Theologically, to do so is on-
tology, a philosophical "proof"
for the existence of God offered in
the 11th century by St. Anselm.
Anselm "proved" the existence
of God by presupposing the im-
possibility that he does not exist.
Since it is impossible that God
does not exist, argued Anselm,
and since it is equally impossible
to conceive of the existence of
anything greater than God,
therefore God exists.
NO LESS a church father than
St. Thomas Aquinas one century
later declared Anselm's ontology
to be an utter absurdity. And
that is what "scientific creation-
ism" is an utter absurdity.
The University of South
Florida's Prof. Betz calls it "a
parody," meaning I suppose, a
travesty on science and scientific
Under any circumstances,
there can be no doubt that
"scientific creationism" is the
illegitimate child of theology; it
has nothing to do with science
the empirical, the a posteriori. It
also has little to do with religion.
Reckoned in these terms, the
Hillsborough County School
Board has bought itself a por-
cupine. When Frank Farmer,
assistant superintendent of
instruction in Hillsborough,
declares, "I wish I knew exactly
what scientific creationism
means," he knows what he is
talking about or at least what
he is confused about. He knows
there is no way of defining what
he is supposed to legislate as part
of the teaching process except by
clerics whose stuff these para-
As Susan Hemmingway re-
ports in the Tampa Times, Hills-
borough schools are most likely
to teach their new beastie in 10th
grade biology classes as an ad-
junct to the regular curriculum
for that course.
SAYS FARMER: "Were
hoping to come up with an idea
not mentioning a Creator or
using the Bible or any other
religious document. If you get
into the area of religion, I say this
is very dangerous. But I've been
told time and time again that this
is not religious."
The hell it isn't. "Scientific
creationism" is as funda-
mentalist religious as you can
get. Because it relies on dogma,
not truth, it is theology pure and
simple. It will teach biblical
creation as literally incontro-
vertible which not Einstein
nor Darwin would dare declare
for their own views of the
universe because they were scien-
tists, not, say, astrologers. Next
stop, the courts.

Four Leading Jews Go
On Trial on Charges They
Ran 'Espionage Center'
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) Jewish sources here have
confirmed that four members of a prominent Iranian
Jewish family have gone on trial before an Islamic
Revolutionary Court in Teheran. The four were identified
as Izaak. Abraham, David and Baruch Boruchim.
IRAN'S OFFICIAL Pars news agency reported that
the four men were charged with embezzlement of public
funds in building a chain of hotels and "creating an
espionage center for American and Israeli agents and
The news agency said hotel employees had claimed
the Boruchims hosted "continual meetings of Iranian
Jews in the hotels and organized meetings of Zionists."
THE CHARGES carry the death penalty, according
to Pars. In May. 1979, a prominent Jewish businessman,
Habib Elghanian, was executed on a variety of charges,
including having Zionist affiliations. On Apr. 22 in the
city of Hamadan, west of Teheran, a Jew, Moishe
Danielpur, who had been scheduled to be executed had his
death sentence commuted.
Danielpur was one of three brothers sentenced to
death, two of them in absentia, on charges of cooperation
with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Mossad,
the Israeli intelligence service.
MEANWHILE, there were reports from Teheran
that seven men were executed in Teheran's jails on
charges which included cooperation with Israel. About
800 people have been executed by Islamic Revolutionary
Courts since the revolution took over 15 months ago.

catch is that the referendum does
not mention separation, a word
the PQ have scrupulously
| avoided in recent years.
It is worded in a broader, much
more ambivalent manner. It asks
Quebec's voters for a mandate to
negotiate with the rest of Canada
I for a status called "sovereignty-
association." What this promised
consists of, no one including
Levesque himself, has been able
to define with any preciseness.
Mr. Trudeau, Canada's Prime
Minister, has announced he will
not negotiate anything that leads
to separation, including
shrewd effectiveness of Mr.
I^vesque's ploy is that it will
seduce, and has already per-
suaded many Quebeckers who do
not want separation, into
believing that a "yes" vote will
enable Mr. Levesque to negotiate
more favorable constitutional
terms for their province within a
federal Canada dealing from a
position of strength, whereas a
"no" vote will be a signal to the
rest of Canada that Quebec is
fully satisfied with the status
WHAT IS THE position of the
Jewish community of this
province, until recently the most
important and the most in-
fluential segment of Canada's
Jewry? Unquestionably, the
Jews of Montreal (the Quebec
Jewish community is virtually
identical with that of Greater
Montreal) is 99.9 percent
federalist, that is, the Jews of
Quebec are Canadians first and
Quebeckers second, just as the
Jews of Ontario are Canadians
first, and are Ontarians only on a
restricted administrative level.
Their fathers and forebears chose
to come to Canada not
necessarily to Quebec.
Their close ties, family-wise,
communally and culturally are
with their fellow Jews and fellow
Canadians in Toronto, Winnipeg.
Calgary and Halifax. Their
communal structures, the
Canadian Jewish Congress, the
Canadian Zionist Federation, the
National Council of Jewish
Women are Canada-wide
agencies. In addition they have
continental ties with New York,
Chicago and Los Angeles which
are solid and just as tangible.
What is the view of Canadian
Jewish Congress, the counterpart
to Argentina's DAIA and
Britain's Board of Jewish
Deputies? Is the Congress
beating the drum for a "no" vote
in the crucial referendum?
THE CJC has wrestled with
this problem since that fateful
day of Nov. 15, 1976 when the
Parti Quebecois swept the
province's assembly, and is now
facing the moment of truth. Its
view after "agonizing reap-
praisal" is that there can be no
Jewish communal position on
this matter. It recognizes the
manifest fact that the Jews of
Montreal, like most Anglophones
(a word which along with
"francophone" has been added to
the political glossary in recent
years) are strong federalists and
are opposed to sovereignty-
association or any form of
camouflaged. And the Congress
acknowledges that individual
Jews will continue to take a
strong position against
separatism as is their civic right -
nor does the Congress discourage
this exercise. But for the com-
munity to adopt an official
position would be to accept the

THE LEADERSHIP has
found that none of these
propositions apply. There has
been no evidence of any anti-
Jewish measures or actions by
the leadership of the PQ in the
implementation of policies. It
must be borne in mind that the
current separatists are quite a
different breed from the older
generation of French Canadian
nationalists. The latter were
dominated by an ultra-
montanist, xenophobic pre-
Vatican II Catholicism, taking
their cue on Jews and other non-
believers from the writings of
Thomas Aquinas and other

token subsidy and will be

nationalism used to be considered
a right-wing phenomenon.

anything, is leftist inclined,

BUT THOSE who stay realize
that opting officially for a "no"
vote will leave the Jewish
community no options politically
and no room for further
negotiation for their needs or for
