The election of a German,
Rudiger von Wechmar, aa
president of this year's UN
General Assembly clearly tes-
tifies to the increasing part
played by Bonn in world affairs.
But fellow-diplomats feel it
also has something to do with
Von Wechmar himself, West
Germany's Ambassador to the
United Nations.
Delegates of 154 countries
elected him, the representative of
a country that has only been in
full membership with the UN for
seven years, partly as an in-

He owes this facility to his
career in journalism, begun as an
American prisoner-of-war after
an interlude as a young Afrika-
Korps officer.
WECHMAR, 56, covered the
Nuremberg war trials as a

reporter, then worked his way to
head of United Press's Frankfurt
Then, like many of his col-
leagues in the era of post-war
reconstruction, the tall ex-officer
and gifted linguist opted for a
diplomatic career.
He soon became acquainted
with the multilateral arena as
press attache at the German
consulate-general in New York
and at the United Nations.
As head of the German
Information Center in New York,
he went on to make friends with
the jet set, with artists, actors
and opera stars.

George Bush accused
"many Western democratic
governments," including
"the government of the
United States," of "sheer
hypocrisy" in their re-
actions to the bombing of a
Paris synagogue on Oct. 3.
Bush, addressing some 500
delegates at the closing session of
the 82nd convention of the
Zionist Organization of America
here, declared that "while the
violence in Paris has been con-
demned by France and other
Western nations, it cannot be

condemning the threat posed by
terrorists to the poeple of Israel.

An Open Letter
We are shocked and outraged by the recent horrifying
events in Paris and elsewhere in France aimed at the Jewish
community and resulting in loss of life and indiscriminate
destruction of property.
History has shown that tyranny invariably goes beyong the
original scapegoat. Once begun, we cannot know where it will
end. We are reminded of the anguished statement of Pastor
Martin Niemoller, well-known German theologian, who said:
"First the Nazis went after the Jews, But I was not a Jew,
so I did not object. Then they went after the Catholics, But I
was not a Catholic, so I did not object. Then they went after the
trade unionists. But I was not a trade unionist, so I did not
object. Then they came after me, and there was no one left to
Let the world be aware of the grave danger facing people
everywhere if they Paris events are allowed to go unheeded by
all of us and the government of France.
Write to the French ambassador to the United States, Mr.
Francois de Laboulaye, Embassy of France, 2536 Belmont
Road, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008.

The Kinneret provides 50
percent of the water for the entire
country. From the Kinneret.
water is pumped through the
national water carrier Tel Aviv.
Jerusalem. Beer-Sheba. and
throughout Israel. When Eretz
Yisroel was being resettled at the
beginning of the century, the
early settlers realized the im-
portance of having the land
around the source of water for the
Kinneret. Therefore, they chose
to make their settlements around
Tel (Thai and in the swamps in the
Hula Valley. Tel Chai was at-
tacked and many of the settlers
were killed Eight of these
original settlers are buried in a
common gravesite at Tel Chai.
A settlement no longer exists
at Tel Chai. Today k is a
memorial and cemetery in honor
of those early settlers The
monument here is a huge lion, as
a symbol of Jewish heroism.
The first self-defense or
guardian group. Ha-Shomel. was
organized here in 1915. This
group convinced other set-
tlements that Jews could take the
offensive and not just be the
recipients of attacks. Ha-Shomel
was the first of the Palmach and
the Irgund. and. eventually, the

12:30 p.m.-Katxrin
The development town of
Katzrin took its name from the
Jewish community that existed
on this same spot during the
fourth century' Katzrin may have
existed as far back as the second
century, it is mentioned in the
Mishnah at that time. Historians
definitely know that about 60
synagogues existed in this area of
the Golan before the eighth
century, indicating a Jewish
population at that time of 60,000
to 100.000.
1 pan. Kibbutz Eia Gev
Kibbutz Ein Gev was one of
several kibbutzim located bet-
ween the Kinneret and the
Syrians on the Golan prior to
1967. Teddy Kollek. the current
mayor of Jerusalem, was a
founding member of this kibbutz.
It is located 600 feel below sea
level. Before 1967. the road from
Ein Gev to Tiberius was always
under gunfire from the Syrians:
so supplies to the kibbutzim
along the Kinneret often had to
be sent over water instead of
along the road. In order to
provide some cover for members
of these kibbutzim, trees were
planted along the road before
continuing on our journey.

used by the kibbutzim to water

system was developed in which
hoses were placed along the rows
of plants, and water was slowly
dripped through holes in the

as last year. A dirt road along the
border with Jordan is swept twice
a day in order to detect any
terrorists infiltrating into Israel.
However, the IDF is occasionally
outwitted by terrorists' tricks to
cross the road undetected. They
must always be on the alert for
terrorist attacks.
7 p.m Jerusalem
While on Ben Yehuda Street,
we stopped at a pastry shop
called AIno's. Later on the bus.
we learned that the Irgund had
often held meetings above this
pastry shop to plan some of its
operations, including the blowing
up of the British headquarters at
the King David Hotel.

Musirawa is a Project Renewal
neighborhood near the Jaffa Gate
of the Old City. Like many
Renewal neighborhoods, its
population is primarily North
African Jews whose large
families with eight and 10
children are crowded into small
one and two bedroom apartments
in deteriorating neighborhoods.
10:30a.m. Zion Gate
David's tomb is located near
Zion Gate. Whether or not this
tomb is really that of David is
still debated. Current ar-
cheological thinking is that this
tomb is probably the place where
David's remains were moved
when the walls of the city were
moved. The custom of that day
was that the dead must be buried
outside of the walls of the city
the reason for the moving of King
David's remains.
The Diaspora Yeshiva is
located next to David's Tomb. In
addition, the last supper of Jesus
and his disciples is supposed to
have taken place in this area.

before 1948 in the desert near the
Dead Sea The settlers wanted to

1:15p.m.- En Gedi
En Gedi is a desert oasis which
traditionally has had a set-
tlement located on this spot. The
kibbutz itself is lush and green, a
striking contrast to the desert
scenery surrounding it.
The Dead Sea is saltier than
any other water on earth because
evaporation concentrates the
amount of minerals per liter of
water. The water level of the
Dead Sea is gradually lowering
because so much of the waters of
the Kinneret are being used in the
national water carrier and
because of mining of minerals
from the Dead Sea.
4 p.m. Dead Sea
After lunch and an afternoon
rest, many of our group went for
a swim in the Dead Sea. In ad-
dition, we soaked in the sulphur
baths and covered ourselves with
mineral mud. Although this area
around En Gedi is not nearly as
salty as that around Sodom,
floating in the water of the Dead
Sea is still an unusual experience
one which especially delighted
the children.

community support system to
strengthen the Jewish family.
The program officially begins
with a major Forum at the GA
Thursday, Nov. 13, which will
include keynote addresses by
Rabbi Raymond A. Zwerin of
Temple Sinai, Denver, and
Professor Gerald B. Bubis,
director. School of Jewish
Communal Service, Hebrew
Union College, Los Angeles.
These addresses will be followed
by five concurrent workshops on
family life-cycle stages.
The CJF program under the
leadership of the Community
Planning Committee is
designed to aid Federations in
developing their role as the focal
point of a systematic, community
approach to the Jewish family at
every stage in the life-cycle.
Chairperson Esther I,eah Ritz of
Milwaukee has called for a new
dimension of Federation concern
and creative leadership in
bringing together the expertise
and resources of Jewish com-
munal agencies and institutions
in a concerted integrated ap-
proach to strengthening the
Jewish family
Congregation Schaarai Zedek
will offer a unique adult studies
series starting Oct. 30 and
continuing Nov. 6 and Nov. 20.
The three-part program titled
"The Jewish Family: Continuity
and Change," will look in depth
to the past, present and future
role of Jewish family life.
The series will address such
danger signals as high divorce
rates, low birth rates, inter-
marriage, homosexuality and
their relationship to the
traditional Jewish lifestyle. The
changing role of the woman in the
Jewish family will also be ex-
plored. This series comes as.a
response to questionnaires
distributed throughout the
congregation in recent months
which suggested that people
wished to explore these matters.
The first session will be held
()ii 30 and will feature Rabbi
Theodore Brod. He will discuss
"Judaic values, in Over-View."
The thrust of this session will be
the traditional role of the Jewish
, family in the past and those
values which can be preserved for
the future.
The second session, Nov. 6,
will be led by Dr. David and
Rudina Richter. It will deal with
values clarification. This will be
an experiential learning program
exploring understanding of the
goals of family life. The Richters
have conducted workshops of
this nature throughout the
community for many years and
will combine their knowledge of
group dynamics and Jewish
values into this workshop.
The final session, Nov. 20. will
be a round table discussion on the
role of the family, dealing with
current and future problems and
stress situations of everday life.
Featured will be many of the
leaders of the community who
work with Jewish families.
Participants include Anne Thai,
director of Jewish Social Service;
Kay Doughty principal of Hillel
School; Marion Nassau, social
worker at Hillsborough Com-
munity Center and Rabbi Frank
N. Sundheim of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek.
This mini series is viewed as
the first effort to explore the role
of the family in Jewish life today
and to strengthen it for the
Don't let Reagan
and the right wing
win this one!
Some people are talking about
sitting out this election. Or voting
for Republican John Anderson. (It's
the same thing.)
Well, if we want to elect Ronald
Reagan and his right wing
supporters, that makes a lot of
sense. Just as it did for those
who helped Nixon beat Hubert
Humphrey in 1968.
But before we do that, take a
look at who's not sitting out
this election.
The rightwingers think 1980 is
their year. They see the radical right
on the rise. Now, with Republican
Ronald Reagan, these groups are
ready to take charge. And impose
their narrow, exclusive views on the
rest of us.
But we can stop them.
Jimmy Carter and Walter
Mondale stand proudly in the
Sogressive, humane tradition of
jmocrats like Franklin Roosevelt
and Harry Truman.
They've shown their courage by
fighting for principles of social
justice, concern for the needy, a
fair deal for the elderly, and human
rights that have always characterized
the Democratic Party.
That's why the same people
who opposed Roosevelt, Kennedy,
Truman, Johnson, and Humphrey

Jimmy Carter. His name means

The Carter Administration has
worked hard to increase Jewish

By 1979, it totalled more

President Carter is committed
to what Israel needs to survive:

United States must reduce its

A Priest's Lesson
Independent presidential candidate John
Anderson had some important things to say to some
5,000 .persons at Northwestern University on
Sunday, notably the observation that "An attack on
the Jews is an attack on everyone."
Somehow, people always fail to recognize this
truth until it is too late. The Hitler era leading up to
World War II was a perfect case in point. Anderson
made his remark because, once again, we appear to
be forgetting the lesson taught us in the past.
But we were even more taken by what Father
John Pawlokowski, of the University of Chicago
Divinity School, declared at Northwestern. "I am
here," he said, "as part of the determined group of
Christians against anti-Semitism in the churches."
Father Pawlokowski hit it squarely on the head.
Not all the lessons in history can preach this truth
more powerfully. Where does western anti-Semitism
come from in the first place if not from the church,
which for 2,000 years has declared it as basic to the
religious principles of Christianity?
Endlessly, we can repeat our charge that the
growing wave of anti-Semitism in Europe and
America is rooted in a growing an ti-Zionism and that
so long, as say in France, governments continue to
preach the new litany of petrodiplomacy, the cold
hard facts of Realpolitik will come to die terrible
equation that anti-Zionism is best practiced by anti-
But there would be no anti-Semitism if the
church were not its staunchest advocate as a lesson
in Christian morality. So said Father Pawlokowski.
And he is right.
Hussein's Opportunism
King Hussein of Jordan, long the favorite of the
United States government and the American media,
is now showing his true colors in the Iraqi-Iranian
war: that of a blatant opportunist.
Hussein has long posed as the gallant young
monarch who would be willing to make peace with
Israel if only the other Arab countries would let him.
Like his grandfather, King Abdullah, he claimed to
enter into war against Israel only reluctantly, forced
by pressure from his fellow-Arab countries.
Now, when some Arab voices would be helpful in
putting an end to the Iraqi-Iranian war which
threatens to become an even wider conflict, Hussein
does not even have the grace of taking his former
stance of remaining quiet. Instead, he has become
the leading Arab spokesman in support of Iraq.
Soviet bloc countries supply Iraq through the Jor-
danian port of Aqaba, just across from the Israeli
port of Eilat. Hussein has gone to other countries,
particularly Saudi Arabia, to urge their support of
This is the man who has refused to support the
Camp David accords despite his reported desire for
peace and the years of American support for his
regime. This is the man who talks of Israeli oc-
cupation but forgets that for 19 years Jordan was the
occupying power on the West Bank, during which
Hussein mentioned nothing about Palestinian rights
or a Palestinian state.
This is a man who denies Israel's right to govern
all of Jerusalem, while for the 19 years he held East
Jerusalem Jews were not allowed to pray at the
Western Wall and Jewish synagogues and cemeteries
were systematically destroyed.
It is time the U.S. dropped its romantic view of
the Jordanian monarch and recognizes him for what

J. B. Kelly, author of "Arabia,
the Gulf and the West," and a
leading authority on that area,
recently wrote, relative to the
Iraqi-Iranian conflict, "Perhaps
the most surprising aspect of the
Western reaction to the outbreak
of hostilities ... is that the West
should have been surprised."
A similar comment is ap-
propriate regarding recent acts of
terrorism and anti-Semitism in
France. Why should anyone be
surprised? In both cases, present
affairs are the inevitable result of
Western opportunism, greed, and
to put it plainly cowardice.
Appeasement of terorism has
been a characteristic of the

gone hand-in-hand along with
that government's appeasement

relative stability and peace: upon
Britain's handing over of
political-military responsibility
to the United States (she com-

began to fall apart: the United
States failed to fill the vacuum,
choosing instead to continue a
policy it had earlier started of
building surrogate powers the
seemingly "easy road."
KELLY'S "Arabia, the Gulf

told current events in the Gulf:

"We are a small group of

growing number of Arabs within

also need the Jews who have
come to the United States from
Russia to come to Israel."
Ben-Hur emphasized the
closeness with which Israel is
watching the Iraq-Iran fighting.
"The build up of weaponry,
not only in Iraq and Iran, but
that which is crossing Jordan, is
of very great concern to us." He
stressed that one lesson to be
learned from this fighting is that
Arabs cannot live in peace among
themselves. Therefore, how can
Israel, their neighbor, expect
them to live peacefully with

no matter who was considered

become the largest oil producer in
the world. Much larger than
Saudi Arabia. And this is a
country which is very unstable

"The United States," Ben-Hur
emphasized, "is being tested in

Jerusalem, Ben-Hur said, was
no question at all. That
Jerusalem will not again be
divided by barbed wire is just a
fact. Using the parallel with
Rome, he said Italy would not
dream of internationalizing Rome
and neither would Israel consider
internationalizing Jerusalem.
That the creation of a
Palestinian State is necessary to
proceed with peace negotiations
is pure nonsense, according to
Ben-Hur. "Between 1948 and
1967, the West Bank and the
Gaza Strip were under the control
of Egypt and Jordan. There was
no peace at that time and neither
did they talk about a Palestinian
State. That is merely a stumbling
block which has now been thrown
in the path.

Oded Ben-Hur was sponsored by

about Stein ". .she was in-

her life were a heavy burden, I

woman who attracted the
greatest creative minds of the

great energy and forcefulness.

In Bonn
Jews Anxious About Schmidt Victory
electoral victory of Chan-
cellor Helmut Schmidt's
Social Democratic
Party (SDP) and his Free
Democratic Party (FDP)
coalition partner headed by
Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher has
revived anxiety in West
Germany's small Jewish
community over the Bonn
government's openly pro-
Arab policies in the Middle
The 30,000 Jews living in the
Federal Republic and West
Berlin have long had doubts.
Schmidt was invited to visit
Israel as long ago as 1975 and the
invitation still stands. But he has
never acted upon it.
More recently, 10 days elapsed
before an official spokesman
found it necessary to deny a
request in Der Spiegel ..that
Schmidt had denounced Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
in very sharp terms, describing
him as a "danger for world
THE DENIAL was issued
only after persistent questions by
the press, an open letter from a
West German organization of
Jewish Holocaust survivors
protesting the alleged remarks by
Schmidt as an "insult to the
whole Jewish people," and an
official request for clarification
from the Israeli Embassy.
Even then, a government
spokesman at first did not deny
Schmidt's reported remarks in
their entirety. He said they were
not directed against Begin
personally but as his settlement
policies in the occupied
territories. Eventually, under
continued questioning by the
press, a firm denial was obtained.
Until recently, the Jewish
community has kept a low
profile. Its leaders rarely spoke
out on the issue of Bonn's
eroding support for Israel and its
increasing tendency to woo the
oil producing Arab states. But
after the Venice summit meeting
of the European Economic
Community (EEC) leaders where
a declaration was issued urging
that the Palestine Liberation
Organization be associated with
the Middle East peace process,
the central organization of
German Jews issued a strong
protest. Bonn wields considerable
influence in the councUs of the
THE ARAB-IsraeU conflict
was hardly touched upon during
the recent election campaign. But
in its closing stages, the op-
position candidate for ChanceUor,
Franz-Joseph Strauss, leader of
the Christian Democratic Union
(CDU), became an outspoken
critic of the government's
Mideast policies.
and denounced Bonn's ap-
peasement of the Arab rejec-
tionist states. He drew angry
retorts from Schmidt who also
faced criticism from within the
SDP, notably from Herbert
Wehner, chairman of its
Parliamentary faction. This
caused some embarrassment to
Schmidt but did not bring about
a significant change of policy.
Strauss, for his part, was never
a favorite candidate. With his
defeat, the weight of hia
relatively pro-Camp David stance
has largely dissipated, and Sch-
midt is free to continue his
policies that are likely to cause a
further deterioration of relations
with Israel. The Jewish com-
munity is too small to exercise
any meaningful political in-
fluence and is expected to con-
centrate on community life rather
than national politics.
AS FAR as the well-being of
Jews in West Germany is con-
cerned, there are no differences
between the SDP-led coalition
and the CDU opposition. Both
are committed to the principle of
helping to renew Jewish life in
this country and are generous in
offering public and financial
support toward that end.
The same may be said about
the struggle against terrorism
from the extreme left and ex-
treme right. Jews here are aware
of the danger of the neo-Nazi
movement which has many links
with the PLO and other ex-
tremist groups at home and
abroad. But they feel secure
inasmuch as they can count on
the help and support of the
authorities. But this feeling of
security has its limits where
Israel's security appears to be
threatened. The Jewish com-
munity, therefore, is not likely to
suppress its concern over Bonn's
Middle East policy.
Israel Unhappy U.S.,
Egypt to Hold
Joint Maneuvers
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli mihtary and political
circles are unhappy over the joint U.S.-Egyptian military
exercises to be held late next month or early in December.
According to reports from Washington, 1,400 American
military personnel are due in Egypt to participate.
Official reactions have been low keyed. Deputy
Defense Minister Mordechai Zipori observed that "the
sending of American troops to Egypt was expected
against the background of the developing pattern of
relations between Egypt and the U.S. It is a matter that
concerns two nations friendly to us and we can do nothing
about it." It was learned that the subject was raised
during the US.-Israeli strategic talks here earlier this
BUT ISRAELI military circles are not concealing
their displeasure. One top ranking officer said the news
that the U 5. is sending troops for joint exercises with the
Egyptians is not happy news. These circles accept the
idea that events in the Persian Gulf have forced the US.
to demonstrate its presence in the region in response to
Soviet penetration through their recently signed friend-
ship pact with Syria.
They believe that while the combined exercises of
Egyptian and American military personnel may not have
an immediate effect on the balance of power between
Israel and its neighbors, they could, in the long range, un-
balance the present situation.
ISRAEL IS preparing, meanwhile, for the good will
visit of the giant American aircraft carrier John F.
Kennedy at Haifa this week. The JFK and its escorts will
bring more than 7,000 US. Navy officers and men to
Israel for a week of rest and relaxation.
While the JFK is welcome, political circles here can't
help comparing this good will gesture with the more
meaningful U .S.-EitvDtian joint exercises.

Treasury Mum on Arab Assets
Honoring a secret agreement with Saudi
Arabia and Kuwait, the U.S. Treasury Depart
ment has refused to disclose, on a country-by
country basis, the United States-based assets and
investments of Middle East oil states, according
to the September issue of Petro-Impact, a bi-
monthly publication of the American Jewish
Committee's Institute of Human Relations that
reports on "petrodollar influence in American
The agreement, according to a report on a new
study by the House Committee on Government
Operations, "has hampered U.S. government
efforts to devise sound U.S. policy on foreign
Though the Administration has denied the
secret agreement's existence, several documents,
as well as statements by former Treasury
Secretary William Simon, confirm that OPEC
investments are published only by general
category, such aa under "Asian" or "African"
investments. The Treasury is so committed to the
agreement that full disclosure has been withheld
from Federal investigating committees, the
Congress and the Department of Commerce's
Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), which has
primary responsibility for monitoring in-
vestments in the United States.
Ambassador Yehuda Z. Blum, permanent
representative of Israel to the United Nations,
presented the major address at the opening
banquet of the 13th National Board Conference of
Women's American ORT in Houston.
The address was delivered to 800 delegates of
Women's American ORT, representing 140,000
members of the organization in over 1,200
chapters from coast to coast, on Monday. Claire
Pyser was conference chairman and Gerri Prince,
conference co-chairman.
Also speaking at the opening session was
Edward Kuznetsov, one of the five Russians
exchanged for two Soviet citizens, convicted in
New Jersey of spying for (he USSR former
Prisoner of Conscience, and Jewish emigration
activist, who was imprisoned for his desire to live
in Israel.
Calling attention to the irony of the situation in
[ which an Arab state that has been consistently
supported by the U.S. is now giving assistance to

J Rabbi Arthur J. Lelyveld, president of the
[ Synagogue Council of America, has called on the
I O.S government to "cease supplying arms and
imic assistance to Israel's rejectionist neigh-
bent on the destruction of Israel, our only
ible ally in the Middle East."
L-lared Rabbi Lelyveld, "Our country must

f genuine friends. Friendship cannot be purchased
but is the product of shared ideals and shared
social purposes.
In his remarks, Rabbi Lelyveld noted that
"Jordan has been the recipient of our persistent
evenhandedness and has been supplied by the
U.S. with material and foreign aid. Iraq, a client
state of the USSR is according to Jordan's
Hussein, the only Arab state that Tends strategic
depth to the Arab cause since Egypt has em-
barked on the Camp David process.
In an interview on Israeli TV, Jean Amalrique,
one of the main editors of the Parisian daily, Le
Monde, stated that those Israelis who argue that
the assertion of French President Giscard during
his visit to the Arab countries on autonomy for
the Palestinians are in conflict with American
policy on that subject, are quite ajfatal
That view, said the newsman, is simplistic and
not in accordance with reality. He argued that
French President Giscard was merely articulating
out loud that which the leaders of the American
administration can only permit themselves to
believe in private. However, following the U.S.
elections the Americans will not hestitate to take
the road which has been indicated for them by the
President of France.
Commenting on that interview, Avraham
Schweizer writes in Ha'artu that so far as the
Arab countries are concerned Western Europe,
under the leadership of France, does not conform
with America's policy but is in opposition to it.
According to this writer, Western Europe aims at
recapturing its position in the Middle East, from
which it was excluded following World War II. ]

U.S. have been put off until after

This was the upshot of the two

But Linowitz said that the

meetings concerning
preparations to ensure its suc-

1981 would be the earliest date.
The U.S. envoy said the parties
would not want "to go to a

are eligible for participation in
the Federal Republic's social
security system.
There is no way of repaying the
Nazi damage done to that once-
glorious German Jewish com-
munity, and no one has in official
terms attempted to say that the
country's Wiedergutmachung
program (economic restitution to
individuals and the State of
Israel) can ever hope to balance
the books of the commitment to
evil under the Nazis by stamping
as "paid in full" the agony of the
six million Jewish victims of the
Nazi scourge.
Still, Wiedergutmachung
represents an official Federal
Republic effort to make economic
amends in the hope that these
amends can ease the lives of at
least some of the victims, or
those of their heirs.
AND HOW can we forget the
long and difficult debate in West
Germany over the Statute of
Limitations and whether the
Statute should be permitted to
run out with respect to the con-
tinued search for Nazi war
criminals and the prosecution of
their cases?
On July 3, 1979, this debate
culminated in a triumph for the
forces urging continued search

and prosecution. I was in Bonn
on the eve of the crucial Bundes-
tag vote. I sat in the offices of Dr.
Hans de With, Secretary of State
for the Ministry of Justice, who
told me, "If we fail ... no new
cases can be brought against
Nazi war ciminals" after January
"Nobody." de With declared,

covered, why then the Public

to say, 'Sorry, but it's too late.'
The unspeakable nature of the
crimes we are talking about must
not be lost in their proper focus:
It can never be too late. '
AM I saying there are no neo-
Nazi or foreign terrorist forces
inspired by them and the Hitler
past currently operating within
the Federal Republic?
Of course not. I remember
another meeting in Bonn last
year this one with Dr. Gerhard
Kohler, in charge of internal
intelligence for the Vervassungs-
schutz. a kind of West German
CIA for the Ministry of the
Kohler s job was to master-
mind the surveillance of what are
tactfully called "risky
foreigners." These include neo-
Nazis on the extreme-right and
Communists on the extreme-left.
The list of people Kohler then had
tabs on, the list of cases that were
being prepared for prosecution
based on Veruassungsschutz sur-
veillance information, read like a
Who's Who of terrorism.
NOT ONLY did my columnist
friend to whom I made reference
at the start argue that the
Federal Republic has taken the
view that terrorist activities were
not a danger to the state; he also
declared that the German
position has been that "in a
democratic state they had the
right to exist."
Clearly, the work of the
Veruassungsschutz denies the
first of his principles. And with
respect to the second, the fact is

will enhance Georgetown's

competence in one of the great
classical civilizations a civil-
ization about which unfor-
tunately even educated Amer-
icans know far too little."
JUST ONE month previously,
Georgetown accepted at 1 million
endowment from the government
of Kuwait for the Center, the
largest given to it up to that
time. Libya and the United Arab
Emirates each have given
750,OOO. Other Arab states that
wve contributed are Jordan,
Egypt. Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Prior to its SI million grant,
Oman gave the Center $100,000

years ago and later gave an
additional $20,000, besides
scholarship contributions to
Georgetown's "intensive summer
Arabic programs." the university
w'th the lstest endowment
"man gave. Georgetown has re-
105.000 frorr, the eight
student body consists of only 38
undergraduate students.
WHEN THE Kuwait gift was
announced, the university's
public relations director, Wesley
Christenson, said it is "very ob-
jective'and as balanced as any
studies program." However, the
American Jewish Committee's
director of special programs, Ira
Silverman, said the Center has "a
clearly marked pro-Arab, anti-
Israel bias in its selection of cur-
riculum material, its faculty
appointments, and speakers."
The Center is directed by
Michael Hudsen, who has often
defended Arab perceptions
regarding Israel. Georgetown
also has six undergraduate
courses in Judaic studies.
Christenson said that of the uni-
versity's 12,000 students about
15 percent are Jewish-
that the Federal Court banned
the National Socialist Party
(Nazi) as early as in 1952. The
ban, Kohler told me, "is a
juridical, not a political decision.
It is the Federal Court that has
decided against the Nazi Party in
the sense that if you legalize your
enemies, then your enemies are
free to attempt to destroy you."
It is true that prototype neo-
Nazi organizations have not been
banned on the basis of a 5 percent
clause in the Federal Republic's
election laws that assures that
fractional parties are ineligible
for seals in the Bundestag, and
so such organizations can never
really achieve either public credi-
bility or a political base from
which to operate, however small.
Why ban them, argued Kohler,
if you maintain constant surveil-
lance of their activities? And if by
denying them a political base
while permitting them their
ceremonial activities you prevent
them from claiming martyrdom?
None of this says that frac-
tional neo-Nazi cells and their
constituents therefore escape the
scrutinizing eye of the Veruas-
THE TRUTH is that, con-
stantly sensitive to its Third
Reich ancestors, the Federal
Republic can conceive of little
that it wants leas than a re-
emergence of anti-Semitism, and
it is probably more vigilant
against that possibility than any
other western power, including
the United States.
What muddles this otherwise
clear view of a potential anti-
Semitic condition in West
Germany today is the recent
emergence in Bonn of a strong
pro-Arab stance in the formu-
lation of its Middle East policy.
This has meant a progressively
weakening support for the State
of Israel except in "window dis-
play" terms, which is to say UN
Res. 242 demanding Israel's
return to its pre-1967 borders.
Already in the summer of 1979,
I could see the effects of this new
policy in Bonn, a petrodiplomacy
suggesting that support for
Israel is an increasing political
liability. Clearly, the shift in
attitude away from Israel, and
Bonn's unique "special relation-
ship'' with Israel as conceived by
the late Konrad Adenauer, have
not been lost either on the neo-
Nazis or the extreme-left
BUT THIS new attitude
toward Israel pervades the entire
free world today, not just the
Federal Republic, and it is an
attitude which has been picked
up by the Third World countries
and the Muscovite minions to
advance their petrodiplomatic
Why, for example, does the
Jewish community in America
come only recently to a recog-
nition of the horrors of French
policy in the Middle East? I have
been pressing this issue for years,
but only now, because of the un-
paralleled growth of anti-
Semitism in France, is there a
sudden awareness of the dis-
gusting opportunism of that

United States. Do we not see a

generally and anti-Semitism
specifically in these lands? As in-
creasingly the George Balls
among us find it cordial and even
comfortable to appear on
television and cite Israel as a
burden to be borne by national
policy-makers, the result is en-
couragement of terrorism and
anti-Semitism as a form of social
coercion to abandon the
ostensible burden.
WHAT MUST be clear is that
the Federal Republic of Germany
is no more guilty of this change in
attitude than we are, and that the
spread of anti-Semitism linked to
"anti-Zionism" (a code word for
too many political forces to
enumerate in this column) is no
more endemic there than here.
In fact, the deterrents in the
Federal Republic, if anything, are
more complex, more clearly sup-
ported by official policy and more
likely to be effective in Germany
at least in immediate terms than,
say, in France. By contrast,
witness the scandalous do-
nothingism of French police to
the spate of anti-Jewish attackers
there in the recent past.
This does not mean that the
reelection of Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt the other week does not
worry me. As architect with
Foreign Minister Genscher of
West Germany's new policy
toward Israel, Schmidt's victory
at the polls may very well give
newer levels of energy to Bonn's
frank petrodiplomacy and to
the extreme-right and left to
interpret this in unaanctioned
terrorist terms.
THE EQUATION is simple:
Israel reduced to a burden equals
Jews in the body politic com-
mitted to policies not in the best
interest of the body politic equals
the sudden respectability of
"therapeutic" anti-Semitism
which has been declared a priori
equal to "racism." The tortured
logic is pathetic, but there is a
strong international force willing
to purvey it. And there are
pockets of neo-Nazi and left-wing
Communist hatred willing to buy
What Schmidt apparently fails
to see is that you can't suddenly
support the Palestine Liberation
Organization at the expense of
Israel without encouraging the
PLO to believe that you approve
of its terrorist methods, no
matter how vigorously you may
tell the PLO that that is an un-
viable conclusion.
As my columnist friend wrote:
"There is a distrubing irony in
this. We see the Soviet Union,
through the PLO, aiding a Nazi
organization which would topple
the West German Government
whose leaders are the strongest
advocates today of detente and
who are the most zealous sup-
porters of the PLO demand for
political recognition."
But if it is a paradox in the
affairs of Chancellor Schmidt, it
is also a paradox for Giscard
d'Estaing and Jimmy Carter and
anyone else who thinks he can
separate an anti-Israel attitude
from indigenous anti-Semitism.
AND IT is also a paradox in
our own affairs, if of a different
order. Unlike the great political
leaders of whose new attitudes we
disapprove, we may very well see
the connection between so-called
anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
But our fears are rooted in an
historic view of the result

strange reason, we are motivated
in a Pavlovian sense to link the
concept of holocaust with

Clergymen Unite
Take Aim at New Christian Right
tJTA) Rabbi Marc
Tanenbaum, national
interreligious affairs
director of the American
Jewish Committee, joined
with three Protestant and
Catholic clergymen in
denouncing public policy
positions of the "new right
evangelicals" or "the new
Christian right." While
supporting participation in
the political process of all
Americans, the clergymen
told a new conference here
test week that the activity
is a threat to both church
and state.
Besides Tanenbaum, the
participants were Dr. Jimmy
Allen, past president of the
Baptist Convention, and now
president of the Radio and
Television Commission; Msgr.
George Higgins of the Catholic
University of America, and
formerly of the U.S. Catholic
Conference; and Dr. Charles
Bergstrom, executive director of
the Office for Government
Affairs of the Lutheran Council
in the U.S.A.
ington bureau chief of the Baptist
Press, told the Jewish
Shalom Committee
The Shalom-Tarn pa

sored by the Tampa Jewish
Federation, has completed plans

honoring newcomers to the

The informal dessert party is
scheduled for 7 p.m., Saturday.
Nov. 8. at the home of Kay and
Maril Jacobs.
An el fort has been made to
contact new arrivals, and in-
vitations already have been
.nailed. However, the committee
wishes to stress that this is not a
closed event, and they would like
to enlist the aid of anyone who is
aware of a new family, couple or
single person. It is not too late to
have someone invited.
If you know of someone who
may be interested in attending.

Tanenbaum and Allen "came up
with the idea and invited the
other two to join" in the news
"No responsible and fair-
minded American questions the
right of fellow Americans of
Evangelical Christian or any
other religious or moral per-
suasion to participate fully as
citizens in the political process
nor to advocate the adoption of
public policy positions which
reflect their ideological bent,"
Tanenbaum said.
He pointed out. however, that
"during the past 15 months,
there have been a number of
actions and statements by major
spokesmen of this newly forged
alliance of several Evangelical
Christian leaders and ultra-
conservative political organizers
which have become deeply
troubling to many of us, and
which require, we believe, careful
analytical scrutiny by both
presidential candidates and by
the American people."
HE NOTED that "a number of
major spokesmen of 'the new
Christian right assert that their
primary purpose in this election,
and through related political
activity on the local levels, is to
Christianize America' and to
establish 'a Christian republic'
That is a myth and it is an
ideologically dangerous myth for
American democracy which must
not go u neon tested. '
Allen said there is a "clear and
present danger to the health and
well-being of both the church and
the state involved in religious
and political extremism." He also
said "we have to be extremely
careful to give the other side the
same freedom that I would want
for myself."
Higgins told the press con-
ference, "I am disturbed by their
repeated and not very subtle
emphasis on getting out what
they indiscriminately call 'the
Christian vote' or even more
ominously, creating in this
country a Christian republic'
One doesn't have to be doc-
trinaire in his interpretation of

PARIS Neo-Nazi Marc
Fredriksen, leader of the out-

Nationalist Action (FANE), was
sentenced to 18 months im-
prisonment last week on charges
of incitement to racial hatred.
But 12 months of the sentence
were suspended. The 46-year-old
former bank clerk was also fined
3.000 francs (S750) and 30,000
francs ($7,500) in damages to five

Fredriksen was not in court.
He is still hospitalized for serious
injuries sustained when he and
other neo-Nazis clashed with a
group of Jewish militants at a
Paris railroad station.
Jean Schewin, president of the

in his neo-Nazi newspaper. Our

services were held here for Ladis-
las Farago, the writer who
claimed in 1972 that Martin Bor-
mann. the high-ranking Nazi
official, was living in Argentina.
Farago died last week at the age
of 74 after a brief illness.
A Hungarian-born former
journalist, Farago was the author
of more than a dozen books on
world affairs, but he became
world-famous through his
contention that Bormann. who
was Hitler's deputy and the one
regardes as responsible for the
mass murder of Jews and Poles
during the Nazi era, was alive in
Argentina and did not die, as
assumed, at the end of the war in
Farago made his contention
concerning Bormann in a series of
articles in The London Daily
Exprt ss in November, 1972. In
those articles he said that Bor-
mann was one of a number of
high-ranking Nazis who had
escaped to South America and
that Bormann was then a pros-
perous, 72-year-old businessman.
But in 1973, West German
officials announced that a
skeleton uncovered during con-
struction work in West Berlin
was all that remained of Bor-
mann. Farago, however, stuck
with his contention and expanded
on it later in a 1974 book called
BONN The German pub-
lisher, Axel Springer, has issued

paper. Die Welt, Springer
especially criticized the West
German policy of giving more

The Lovelace Park rally proved
a fiasco for the Nazis. Eleven
showed up, one carrying an
American flag, the others
carrying shields with swastikas.
They were surrounded by 60
policemen inside a cordoned off
area but did not manage to speak
as the fiercely anti-Nazi crowd
shouted epithets and pressed
threateningly against a six-foot
fence barrier.
THE CROWD included
members of leftwing groups and
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP). Many participants in
the campus rally went to
Lovelace Park "to bear dignified
witness," as Rabbi Knobel said,
"to the distress at seeing Nazi
symbols in Evanston." The rabbi
was among the group carrying
signs reading, "The Jewish
People Live," and "Freedom Yes,
Nazis No."
The Nazis left after five
minutes under heavy police
escort. Their parting gesture was
to unfurl a sign reading
"Holocaust 6 Million Lies."
Four or five spectators were
detained by police for trying to
break through the barriers.

draw them here, where will we
draw them? I submit it is a sin to

because I consider it my duty to

Sol Goldstein, chairman of the
Public Affairs Committee's
subcommittee on individual
liberty and Jewish security,
himself a Holocaust survivor,
declared, "In times of evil, in-
difference to evil is evil itself. As
Jews and as human beings we
must never forget what the Nazis
did to us. Never again, not in
Jerusalem, not in Paris, not in
Evanston. We have come to this
place to attest that we live."
Evanston told the gathering that
"issuing a permit for the Nazi
demonstration was the most
repugnant act I've had to per-
form. But there is a price one has
to pay for freedom." Father John
Pawlokowski, of the University
of Chicago Divinity School, said,
"I am here as part of the
determined group of Christians
against anti-Semitism in the
churches. I am convinced that
this is not a Jewish battle but a
battle for all."
Rabbi Peter Knobel, of
Congregation Beth Emet, the
Free Synagogue of Evanston,
said, "Today must be a begin-
ning until the dominion of hatred
is banished from the world."

The Baron's fellow-diplomats
set great store by the stimulating
atmosphere the German couple
succeed in creating.
Von Wechmar is also happy to
host pressmen, representatives of
his erstwhile career, telling them
with a wry expression that at
United Press in pre-deutsche-
mark days he earned a salary of
800 reichsmarks and two cartons
of cigarets.
After a spell as Eastern Europe
correspondent for ZDF, the
second channel of West German
TV, he finally switched sides to
work as press spokesman for the
Social and Free Democratic Bonn
government of Chancellor Willy
Brandt and Foreign Minister
Walter Scheel. But even as a
state secretary he retained, as
head of the Bonn government's
Press and Information Office, a
clear understanding of press
requirements and a confidence in
journalists' fairness and
reliability that has stood him in
good stead in New York as well
as Bonn.
AT THE UN, where there have
been two German ambassadors
for the past seven years, Rudiger
von Wechmar is synonymous
with German; a new Germany
shorn of prejudice and with a
ready, open ear to the world.

We believe supporting
Ronald Reagan is in the
best interest off Israel.
And a secure Israel
is in the best interest of the
United States.
in this election year of painful choices, we, the undersigned, believe
Ronald Reagan is the right choice for everyone who is concerned with
the future of Israel.
we have reached this conclusion after much deliberation and a
careful study of the current administration's record of promises
made to Israel and broken.
we have reached this conclusion after hundreds of hours of
discussion, debate andyessoul-searching.
we have reached this conclusion after carefully weighing the abilities
and character of the candidates.
we believe Ronald Reagan is the right choice because of his clear and
unequivocal stand against the plo. Because of his support of Israel's
west Bank settlements. Because of his belief that Jerusalem is Israel's
lawful and historic capital.
And most important, Ronald Reagan is the right choice because he
believes Israel should be counted on as a trusted ally and a strategic
asset in a part of the world where we have precious little of either.
He does not view Israel as an embarrassment.
He knows that all the old cliche s about America's moral obligation to
the survivors of the Holocaust mean nothing in today's OPEC world. His
support is based on a far more practical (and believable) foundation:
That overriding fact is why we, Democrats and Republicans, urge you
to vote for Ronald Reagan in this most crucial election year.
