Weizman Out;
Shamir Takes
Defense Post
JERUSALEM Israels new Defense Minister is
Yitzhak Shamir. Announcement of Shamir's appoint-
ment was made over Israel Radio on Tuesday.
Shamir, recently appointed Foreign Minister by
Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who had previously
been holding that post since the resignation of Moshe
Day an, succeeds Ezer Weizman.
Cabinet meeting on Sunday and
departure with a blistering letter of
Begin on Monday. Ostensibly, the Weizman resignation
was over budget cuts in the area
Russia to IsraelWith Love
Although she taught school for over
thirty years in Southern Russia, Asnat
Jsupori never felt that her native Bukhara
i/as her home. "Now in Israel, I am
lome," says this 63-year-old newcomer to
Israel. "No one can ever tell me to leave."
Asnat speaks Turkish, Bukharan, and
Russian, but the fluent Hebrew that her
children and grandchildren have acquired
Is still her biggest challenge. "Luckily my
husband and I were able to find jobs at
Hameshakem where knowledge of
Hebrew wasn't so important," she says.
Largely funded by the Jewish Agency,
Hameshakem employs 7,000 of Israel's
elderly and handicapped throughout the
country. World Jewry, through the United
Israel Appeal Keren Hayesod, helps
provide these funds.

resignation at a
followed up his
"explanation" to
of defense, but it has long been
known that Weizman strongly
disagrees with Begins policies on
the West Bank settlements and
Israel's stance in the autonomy
talks with Egypt.
These talks were in fact
brought to a sudden and sur-
prising halt by Egypt's President
Anwar Sadat last week. The May
26 deadline, by which time bi-
lateral agreements on the future
of the Arabs in Gaza and Judea
and Samaria were supposed to
have been reached, passed on
There is no indication that the
failure to meet the deadline, or
indeed Sadat's earlier halting of
the talks, meant anything more
than a temporary setback.
Already, there are signs that the
talks may be resumed soon.
SADAT'S MAJOR reason for
halting the talks was an Israeli
vote establishing the union of
Jerusalem as one city indivisible
and as the capital of Israel. Sadat
Gen. Weizman
had been pressing for Arab rights
to vote on their future status in
East Jerusalem.
According to Israel Radio.

Happy Anniversary
The Jewish Towers has been observing its fifth
anniversary throughout May. Five years ago there
was great concern that it was too large for our city;
now there is a lengthy waiting list and talk of
another such residential building.
More than just a place to live, it has brought to
its residents companionship, comfort and in-
dependence. Recognizing the success of The Jewish
Towers would not be complete without ac-
knowledging the outstanding work of Juliet
Rodriguez, the building manager.
We salute you, Juliet, for making The Jewish
Towers the success it is.
The Weizman Departure
Israel's new Defense Minister, Yitzhak Shamir,
argues by his appointment that an even harder line
is to be expected if and when the autonomy talks
The May 26 deadline was over Monday. But no
- one really expected that the deadline was anything
more than symbolic not Prime Minister Begin,
not Egypt's President Sadat.
Sadat's reasons for interrupting the talks are
his own: one may speculate upon them ceaselessly.
It is doubtful that his stated reason, Israel's vote to
affirm the status of Jerusalem as one city indivisible
and as the capital of Israel, was Sadat's real reason.
His purposes apart, we find it hard to believe
that the autonomy talks will not resume. But there
will be a change once they do. The resignation of
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman is perhaps a good
thing. We do not take the position that Weizman
was a dove and therefore a credit in the ledger of the
Israeli autonomy talks setup.
Rather, we prefer to observe that Weizman has
long had Likud aspirations of his own and that his
status as a negotiator weakened Israel. First, he
failed to represent the government's viewpoint on
the territories, speaking instead for himself.
Second, and more important, he used autonomy
as a platform to advance his personal political
A Clerical Error
The American Jewish community is saddened
by the forced decision of Rep. Robert Drinan (D.,
Mass.) not to seek another term in Congress.
During his 10 years in the House of Represen-
tatives, he has been an effective supporter of Israel
and a leading spokesman for the cause of Soviet
Jewry. First elected because of his strong opposition
to the Vietnam War. he is the author of a book that
takes liberals to task for their failure to support
But Drinan, a Jesuit priest, had to bow before a
new edict by Pope John Paul II that priests can no
longer take part in politics.
Yet, one would have less quarrel with the
Pope's decision if there were no cause to wonder
why the Vatican has not cracked down on Arch-
bishop HMarion Capucci. the onetime gun-runner
for the Palestine Liberation Organization who now
pops up in Teheran frequently to aid the terrorists
holding 53 American hostages there.
After serving 39 months of a 12-year jail
sentence in Israel for smuggling arms to Palestinian
terrorists on the West Bank. Capucci was banished
to Latin America. But he returned to Europe and
the Mideast.
If Pope John Paul II wants priests out of
politics, he should have started with Capucci, a
clergyman who supports terrorism, not Drinan. who
has a constructive record in public affairs.

THERE IS no doubt that
riots, like the neutron bomb, are
based on a sound American
belief: property is worth more
than humanity. As a sacred prin-
ciple, it is central to our most
exalted national document, the
Declaration of Independence.
When blacks rioted in Miami
the other weekend, they were
operating according to that
belief. If whites will not actively
listen to them and redress their
grievances, the reaction may be
slow in coming, but it is
terrifying in its result and un-
mistakable in its meaning: the
destruction to property will hurt
those who own it (whites) more
than it does those who merely
Live or work in it (blacks).
THE HURT to whites is
profound beyond the loss of
property itself. The hurt is to a
sacred American trust, a
profound belief in the im-
mortality of what you own and
pass on to heirs.
In this sense, it is a surrogate
for immortality itself. The
property-owner participates in
the immortality of property
through his Last will and
testament, and it is a truer kind
of immortality than heirs them-
selves because heirs ultimately
die, too.
For the most part, blacks still
have little property. Blacks have
no such surrogate for their own

original Palestine mandate; (2) if
Arabs can live as a minority in
Israel. Jews can live as a
minority in the West Bank; and
(3) in any case, the settlements
are essential for Israel's security.
Whether or not one accepts all
of Mr. Begin's arguments, it
turns history on its head to hold
that the 'Settlements are an
obstacle to peace. When previous
Israeli governments pursued a
far more circumscribed set-
tlement policy, Jordan and the
other Arab states refused to talk
peace from 1949 to 1967, when
Jordan occupied both the West
Bank and East Jerusalem
areas which the Arabs now insist
Israel return as a precondition for
joining the negotiations. And
they refuse to talk peace now.
It is Arab refusal to accept
Israel as a permanent part of the
Middle East not the set-
tlements that is and always
has been the only obstacle to
peace. It is Arab unwillingness to
accept Israel's legitimacy not
the "Palestinian issue" that is
the heart of the problem in the
Middle East.
In November 1977, President
Sadat made his momentous
decision to fly to Jerusalem and
i he stalemate was broken. But no
other state in the region has
followed Sadat's initiative, and
Israel is not so suicidal as to
withdraw from territories that
separate her from her avowed
enemies in the absence of peace.
AT CAMP David, the parties
approached this aspect of the
problem by inaugurating a
process to encourage fun-
damental attitudinal changes
Arab hatred, Jewish fears
among the peoples living in the
area. This process called for
giving the Palestinian Arabs and
the Israelis on the West Bank
five years of experience in living
together under an autonomy
agreement in which the powers
and responsibilities of an
Administrative Council or self-
governing authority would be
defined by mutual agreement. A
goal of May 26, 1980 was set to
achieve that limited agreement.
All questions of permanent
borders and sovereignty were
explicitly deferred, in the hope
that autonomy for the
Palestinians and the evolution of
normal relations between Egypt
and Israel would lead other
Middle Eastern states to con-
clude that peace with Israel was
no longer unthinkable. Only then
could a comprehensive peace be
The purpose of the autonomy
talks, then, is not to create a
Palestinian state or to bring
about ultimate annexation of the
territory, either by Jordan or by
Israel, but to give Israelis and
Palestinians the opportunity to
overcome the psychological
barriers that have separated
them for more than a generation.
Toward that end the Palestinians
will, under autonomy, enjoy more
control over their daily lives than
they have ever had under any
ruler. It is understood that
Jordan and other Arab states are
not now ready to make peace
with Israel; but it is hop%d that a
successful autdnomy experience
will enhance the likelihood that
they will want to later.
It is a noble goal; some might
call it quixotic. And it might yet
work, given enough time. But if
attention is focused on Israel's
settlement policy rather than on
the respective rights and
responsibilities of the
Palestinians and the Israelis in
the West Bank during the next
five years. I fear there will be no
progress toward the goal of
achieving a plan for self-rule that
all the parties can agree on.
Thus, far, both Israel and
Egypt have scrupulously fulfilled
their responsibilities under the
Camp David accords and the

Floridian Spotlight on Beth Osiason
Editor's Note: We don't know how to calculate
the odds of this happening. Surely even Ripley
wouldn't believe it. The children of two business
partners are valedictorians of two different high
schools in the same year.
We proudly present Beth Osiason and Sam
Weiner whose mothers, are partners in "The
Swinging Set".
Beth Ellen Osiason is number one in her
graduating class of 474 at Plant High School.
"I didn't even realize that I had a chance to be
Number One until the beginning of my senior
year." this petite and fragile young lady said. "1
didn't think that I'd be first because I knew the
other students and how high their averages
Returning from a skiing trip to Vail this winter,
Beth and her parents Carol and Kenneth Osiason
found their car in the parking lot plastered with
"You're Number One" and "You're Valedic-
torian." In her absence from Plant, the an-
nouncement had been made, and her aunt and
uncle. Lorna and Burt Osiason, knew where the
car was parked and took care of the decorations.
Her 4.503 average (that was at the end of the
first semester of her senior year) was made
possible through honors classes (an A is four
points) and the result of her making only one "B"
on a semester average. Beth smiles as she says
that once in a while she made a "B" on a 9-week
grade but only one on the semester or year-end
"Just because you are the valedictorian,
everyone thinks that the Ivy League says Come
on," and that isn't so," Beth claims. Beth, who
was accepted at all the colleges to which she
applied, has chosen to attend Sophie Newcomb
College in New Orleans in the fall and will major
in business. "If I had my wish." she said. "I
would manage or own an art gallery. That way I
could combine my interest in art with my desire
to be very successful in business."
Beth's scholastic competition came from within
her household. Her brother Steve, who graduates
from Wharton this year with a degree in finance.
. graduated very high in his class at Jesuit. Her
brother Randy, who is also a student at the
Wharton School of Finance, graduated fifth in his
class at Plant.
Beth's school activities have been many. She
has played on the tennis team (No. 6 in singles
and No. 1 in doubles with Dee Ann Crowder). She
has been the captain of the math team and a
member of the National Honor Society.
She is president of I Dare You, a club for

I wfl] bring a few thoughts as found in both Talmud and
Midrash on this subject:
"All the time of Noah's flood, the waters boiled. A star or
planet collided and was cast upon the earth. The entire order of
creation was changed at that time" iRosh Hashana lib)
"God created worlds and destroyed them until He created the
present world and said. "This world pleases me but the others
didn't." (Midrash Rabba 15).
On the above quotation, the Etz Yosef explains that this
happened 2.000 years before the creation of our world. In those
2.000 years God created and destroyed other worlds.
The day was established before the creation of the sun.
"Rabbi Abba said. "Before God created the world. He and His
name were One. He contemplated creating our world, but
created 1,000 other worlds prior to this as it is written "The
thousand worlds are thine" (Songs 5:12). Then God created still
other worlds in order to teach that all is as naught for Him.
"He who believes that there were previous worlds denies God
and the Torah.'' (Ramban-Gen 1:1).
Some of our Sages held the opinion that time existed before
creation. "It is not written, 'Let there be evening' but 'there was
evening.' Which proves that the order of division of time existed
before creation." _
Saadya Gaon states "Time is nothing but the measurement of
the duration of corporal bodies and that which is not a body is
beyond time and measurement of duration." (Emunath VDeoth
The Albo in Ikkarim 2:18 states that there are two kinds of
II Time which is measured and numbered by the motion of the
sphere. In this time there are distinctions of before and after,
equal and unequal. We call this "Order of Time." This existed
from the first day of creation.
21 Unmeasured duration conceived in thought as eternal. This
existed before the creation of the world and will continue to exist
after the world is destroyed. It is also called the "Semblance of
Time." Thus there was unmeasured time before and during
creation. The eternity of God is unmeasured by time.
"God creaed the beginning of time for previously there was no
time at all. (Rabbi J. Eibeshutz-Yaarat D'Vash-on Megillah 9a).
Thus from the above quotations we see that the majority of
our Sages believed that before creation there was no time. When
did time as we know it. begin? There are also various views on
the length of the day of the six days of creation. Many of our
rabbis argued the matter of time in which the earth rotated
around its axis thus making time shorter or longer.
R. Eliezer says: "The world was created from its centre, as it
is said: "When the dust runs into a mass, and the clouds keep
fast together. (Job 38:38)".
Thus out of the centre of the earth the mountains and
everything on earth was heaved out by volcanic eruptions.
(Yoma 54a).
R. Joshua Said: The world was created from its sides out. as it
is written: "For he saith to the snow: "Fall thou on the earth;
likewise to the shower of rain.' Whereupon were the foundations
thereof fastened, or who laid the corner-stone thereof?" (Job
This description, Rashi says, is that of a skeleton or frame,
which filled in, gradually solidifying from all sides toward the
centre which R. Joshua manintained was last in foundation. All
scriptural verses here are used illustratively. Here is an amazing
theory that the world was created by the will of God through the
solidification of vapors. Doesn't this sound like one of the
modern scientific theories of creation? I Yoma 54b).
In t he face of this great diversity of views as to the manner of
creation and as to in what time measure life was formed, one
could tielieve in the evolving and growth of forms in setting of
Jewish belief. (Conclusion next week).
Asserting that "current
economic policies to reduce in-
flation are deficient." Kirkland
told 300 delegates to the national
convention of the American
Jewish Congress in the Hyatt-
Regency Hotel that he favored "a
fundamental redirection of
current national policies" on oil
and high interest rates.
Kirkland declared. "It is time
to recognize the inflation problem
for what it is: uncontrolled and
outrageous increases in prices for
two of the most fundamental and
important costs in our society
the cost of energy and the cost of
United States to follow the
dictates of its conscience in in-
ternational politics a freedom
that requires breaking the OPEC
stranglehold is the greatest of
"Weaning the U.S. economy
off its diet of imported oil is
essential to stop the outflow of
U.S. dollars overseas. It is also
essential if we are to restore
sanity to domestic pricing
mechanisms. Permitting U.S. oil
producers to charge the same
price as OPEC for domestic oil
a price that has no relationship to
the cost of production forfeits
what is rightly national decision-
making to foreign powers.
"Even more important,
however, is the threat posed to
the role of the United States as
the leader of the free world by the
spectacle of the U.S. paying
ransom in both dollars and in
our relations with other nations
to the Arab oil states.
"AS A FIRST step toward
reducing the dependence on
imported oil, the government of
the United States should act as
the importer of all oil. I, frankly,
have little confidence in the
ability of the large oil companies
to negotiate a fair price from
OPEC especially since the
greater the increase in the OPEC
price, the more they can charge
for domestic oil.
"Further, given the political
importance the sellers attach to
their product, I do not believe it
is wise to entrust profit-making
corporations with making
decisions which are essential to
U.S. foreign policy.
"Finally, only when the
government imports all oil can
the government begin to turn off
the Arab oil spigot by
reducing the level of imports.
"An oil import fee even
camouflaged as a 'conservation'
measure can never be as ef-
fective as stopping the imports
before they reach our shore. The
import fee is also unfair it is
rationing-by-price. Those who
can afford to pay the higher price
for gasoline will do so; those who
cannot will suffer.

"The government also has a

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portioi
BEHAALOTEKHA God commanded Moses to organize the
tribes in their marching order. The Ark of the Covenant was
carried at the head of the marching hosts, a symbol of God's
presence and protection.
"When lM)th trumpets are blown, the entire congregation
shall gather around you. but when one trumpet is blown only the
chiefs shall gather around you.
"The sons of Aaron, the priests, shall be the only ones to
blow the trumpets. You shall blow your trumpets when you
make your offerings at your festivals, and on Rosh Hodesh. the
first day of the month."
In the second year, on the twentieth day of the second
month, the cloud over the Tabernacle was lifted, and the
Israelites traveled from the wilderness of Sinai.
The Invites bore the Ark. When they started, Moses said a
prayer: "Rise upO Lord and let Your enemies be scattered ..."
And when they brought the Ark to rest, Moses would say:
"Return. O Lord, unto the ten thousands of the families of
To this day the prayers of Moses are chanted at the opening
and closing of the Ark, whenever the Torah is read.

-irolled the Rev. Jesse Jackson
and Andrew Young, among other
black leaders, to still the fires of
rage. But Jackson and Young are
part of a much larger movement
than the "mere" black American
movement for equivalence.
Jackson and Young are both
deeply involved in international
revolutionary activities. This was
made eminently clear only last
year by their intimate par-
ticipation in the affairs of the
Palestinians, which goes far
beyond Israel to Jews them-
selves, Israeli and of other
nationalities. It includes the Irish
Republican Army, Italy's Red
Brigade, the terrifying heirs to
Japan's Zengakuren.
about Jews. He is tired, he says,
of hearing about the Holocaust.
And Andrew Young's flirtation
with the PLO and Yasir Arafat
have already been sufficiently
well-documented to need no more
comment here.
One is therefore forced to
shudder that it is men such as
these who visited the black com-
munity the other week to help
still the fire of rage. Did they
speak to the black community as
black Americans or as inter-
national guerrillas?
An Associated Press report of
May 17 quotes Yasir Arafat in
Beirut on the Cuban influx into
Miami. There, in Beirut, Arafat
proclaimed unity with Fidel
Castro, vowing that his PLO
guerrillas would pledge them-
selves to fight alongside Castro
Cubans against the United
"THE JOINT command of the
Lebanese-Palestinian forces is
fully prepared to fight in defense
of Cuba and its people," said
Arafat. What, he declared, the
PLO is fighting, "is the struggle
against American imperialism
everywhere." It is a struggle, he
said, "which is indivisible."
White America, white western
Europe, still do not see Arafat for
what he truly is the deceptive
Marxist Castro of the Middle
They are quite prepared to
dismiss his challenge as "simply"
against Judaism and Zionism
and to betray both as they have
done throughout history.
Why should black America see
through the deception anymore
clearly, including Jackson and
Young? That there are some
blacks, such as Roger Wilkins,
who has declared, "If Jesse
Jackson said he is tired of
hearing about the Holocaust,
then Jesse is an ass," does not
mitigate the fact that Jackson
and Young and the other black
leaders of their ilk are an ass.
That they are the vanguard of the
disaffected black community
WHAT WE are left with is
ignorance on both sides of the
conflict, white and black, and
that is what I find so horrifying.
In 1980, American race riots are
infinitely more complex than
they were in the 1960's.
If the causes that enflame
them are not laid to rest soon, it
is not equivalence that dis-
affected blacks will be seeking,
but something else. Something
revolutionary that the Jacksons
and the Youngs are preaching
among them today.

Sadat Calls Carter 'Weak, Indecisive'
Egypt's President Sadat, who only a short
while ago had nothing but praise for President
Carter calling him a great statesman, has ap-
parently had a change of heart. As reported in
the weekly. Oktober. Sadat characterized Carter
as a "weak and indecisive person, who is not
capable of taking a firm stand.''
As an example he cited Carter's handling of
the UN Security Council vote on Jewish set-
tlements on the West Bank. He called Carter's
handling of that question an example of the
characteristic indecisiveness of American policy
in the present administration. According to the
Oktober article. Sadat was also sharply critical
of American policy in the Persian Gulf and
He also added that Carter did not seem to
have the ability to mobilize support from the
Arabs -and the Western world. "Never has
America suffered so many insults as during
Carter's 'regime.'' Sadat is reported as having

Israel's .Minister of Interior Dr. Yosef Burg
said in Jerusalem that a psychological gap still
separates Americans and Israelis when it comes
to understanding Isral's security needs.
The chief Israeli negotiator at the autonomy
talks with Egypt and the United States, who
had just wound up the second last round of the
autonomy talks with his Egyptian and American
counterparts scheduled to end on May 26, said
that Americans and Israelis have a different
concept of certain distances. He said that when
the Americans were at war in Vietnam, the
distances in miles were almost astronomical.
Israelis speak about things in their own
backyard: that the distance between Bethlehem
and Jerusalem is half a mile and between
Tulkarem and Netanya (at the former border of
1967) no more than 7 to 8 miles, which is less
than half the length of New York's Broadway.
This is a distance which Americans commute to
work dairy. But although Americana and Israelis
use the same words, the meaning of distance is
different in Israel._____________

Time to Explain
Why Ousted Arabs Shouldn't Return
hardliner, had just finished
telling a group of visiting U.S.
congressmen that Weizman's
resignation would not affect the
negotiations with Egypt when
the announcement of his appoint-
ment was made.
SHAMIR acknowledged that
the doveish Weizman has "good,
friendly personal relations" par-
ticularly with President Sadat.
Egypt greeted the news of the
change in command with equa-
nimity. In Cairo, Egypt's newly-
appointed Foreign Minister Gen.
Kamal Hassan Aly. said it is the
"duty" of Israel and Egypt to
resume the talks. But Aly blamed
Israel for the lack of autonomy
Meanwhile, Israel Ambassador
to Egypt Eliahu Ben-Elissar left
Cairo for Jerusalem, denying that
his return home was anything
other than for "routine embassy
business that has nothing to do
with the autonomy talks."
SINCE opening Israel's Em-
bassy in Cairo, Ben-Elissar has
been experiencing a diplomatic
freeze in that city's international
community, where he is being
snubbed at social functions or not
invited at all.
The Supreme Court has
given the Defense Ministry
45 days to explain why its
expulsion orders against
three West Bank political
figures should not be re-
scinded and the deportees
permitted to return to their
homes in the Hebron
The high court acted on ap-
peals by the families of Mayor
Fahed Kawasme of Hebron,
Mayor Mohammed Milhim of
Hulhoul and Kadi (religious
judge) Rajeb Buyud Tamimi of
THEY WERE deported on
May 3, following the killing of
six yeshiva students in a
terrorist ambush in Hebron the
previous night. The three men
were held morally responsible for
the act inasmuch as political
statements by them in the pre-
ceding weeks allegedly created
an atmosphere conducive to
In issuing its show cause order
to the Defense Ministry and the
Military Governor of the West
Hank, the Supreme Court took a
dim view of the fact that the de-
portees were expelled without
being-given their legal right to
appeal before a special com-
mittee which advises the
Military Government in such
State Attorney Gavriel Bach
admitted in court that the
deportations were effected in a
manner contrary to accepted
custom and obliquely ad-
monished the government. The
State should honor the law, he
HOWEVER. Bach argued
that the deportations came in
the immediate aftermath of "the
brutal and traumatic event" in
Hebron. Justice Haim Cohen
retorted that because the event
was "brutal and traumatic" the
deportations should not hav.e
been carried out in the same
Cohen recalled that the
Supreme Court had ruled 32
years ago that the emergency
regulations of the former Man-
date Government in Palestine
which allowed summary depor-
tations were illegal unless the
subject was given prior oppor-
tunity to appeal. The justice
expressed "surprise" that this
right was not accorded the three
Arab leaders.
The latter are presently in
New York where they are
seeking to address the United
Nations Security Council. The
Council has ordered Israel to re-
admit them but when the three
attempted to reenter the West
Bank a week ago they were
turned back at the Jordan River
MEANWHILE, the Supreme
Court has under consideration an
appeal on behalf of two Arab
families the Shumalis of Beit
Sahour near Bethlehem and the
Kaabas of Balata village near
Nablus who were removed
from their homes by Israeli
authorities last week and placed
in a deserted former refugee
camp near Jericho in the Dead
Sea valley.
The Military Government
acted after members of both
families allegedly hurled rocks
and a gasoline bomb at Israeli
military vehicles. The appeal,
submitted to the high court by
the Shumali family, accused the
authorities of collective punish-
ment in violation of the Fourth
Geneva Convention.
The case is the first in which
families and their belongings
were deported internally, i.e.,
within the occupied territories.
Yaacub Shumali. 60, his wife and
their two daughters, one a
teacher and the other a student
at Bir Zeit University, are living
in a clay hut in the Ein A-Sultan
camp which housed 50,000
refugees before the Six-Day War.
Their son, Tariq, 17, is accused
of throwing a stone at the car of
the Bethlehem Military Gover-
nor. The 12 members of the
Kaaba family were sent to the
same site after a family member,
Ahmed Mohammed. 27,
allegedly threw a gasoline bomb.
