eo-Nazi Surge Sparks British Alert

MP Frank Allaun of
er bomb. It is feared
I this could spark a
third wave of such attacks
in the past four years.
Although the letter did
not explode, and although
Allaun is known more for
his extreme leftwing
political opinions than for
his connections with Jewish
causes, the incident is
regarded as symptomatic of
a new surge in neo-Nazi
anti-Semitism in Britain.
MUCH OF this activity is
fragmented and uncoordinated.
The National Front, the leading
neo-Nazi group, split into five
segments last year and there are
probably another five neo-Nazi
groups. This means that as a
force at the ballot box, the neo-
Nazis are further from success
than they ever were. Never-
theless, what they lack in
cohesion the British Nazis more
than make up in virulence.
One of the most sinister group
calls itself Column 88. It

Exports hit $10 million last

A slim, slight, grandmotherly
figure, Leah Gottlieb keeps a
close watch on her product from
the moment of its conception
until it goes on sale in a top U.S.
or European store.
WATCHING her at work is a
lesson in total control. Activity
goes on around her. Her daughter
Miriam Scher is over from New
York to select for the coming

Little is known of its leader-

to recruit the most fanatical and
ruthless members of other Nazi
groups. Thought to have some '

ANOTHER virulent group is
the British Movement, the
successor of the British National
Socialist Movement which was
active 20 years ago. Now as large
as any of the factions of the
fragmented National Front, it is
extremely anti-Semitic,
distributes most of the anti-
Semitic hate propaganda in
Britain, including copies of the
Protocols of the Elders of Zion,
and is believed to be partly
financed by an Arab state,
probably Libya.
The National Front, which
fielded more than 300 candidates
in the last general election, broke
up because of personal squabbles.
The various break-away groups
are now trying to unite, together
with the British Movement,
which scorns the National
Front's attempts to deny that it
was anti-Semitic.
oronary Caper
Rap Rabbi for U.S. Operation
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi Shlomo
Goren has come under severe
criticism in the press and public
opinion here for having gone to
Cleveland for a quadruple bypass
operation by an American
surgeon. The operation was per-
formed successfully by Dr. Floyd
Loop who performed a similar
operation on King Khalid of
Saudi Arabia two years ago.
The criticism is two-fold.
Goren is being taken to task for
having surgery performed abroad
when hundreds of similar
operations are performed each
year at Israeli hospitals. People
are also incensed over the rights
and privileges of important
public figures to have their
medical expenses covered by the
public purse, including expenses
incurred abroad.
THE GOREN case has stirred
debate here over the various laws
and regulations awarding
medical benefits to VIPs. These
laws and regulations are not
entirely clear. Some top level
persons, including government
ministers, are entitled to public
defrayment of their medical
expenses and those of members
of their families. Several news-
papers have called for a thorough
overhaul of the entire system so
that such benefits are limited
only to the highest office-holders.
The question of when the
public should pay the medical
bills of officials who receive treat-
ment abroad is also being aired.
In Goren's case, his Israeli
physician. Dr. Henry Neufeld,
chief of cardiology at the Sheba
Medical Center, did not recom-
mend that the Chief Rabbi go
overseas for surgery. But Goren's
family decided on the Cleveland
Clinic and Neufeld provided the
Americans witb.his full medical

Israel at 9 p.m. and it was still
light. We went straight to our

10 a.m. Touring Amsterdam
Today, the weather was rainy
and cool, like a winter day in
Tampa. We walked to Dam
Square, the Queen's Palace, and
the Central Station, where we
took a canal trip. Because of the
rain, it was difficult to see
everything. After the canal trip,
we took a tram to the
Kijsmuseum and walked through
the many floors and rooms of
exhibits. In addition to the
famous Dutch painters, Rem-
brandt. Frans Hals, and Ver-
meer. there were displays of
china, wood carvings, doll houses
and medieval arts.

9 a.m. Anne Frank House,
Amsterdam '
Anne Frank was an amazing
child whose talent and life were
crudely and cruelly ended by the
Nazi monsters at Bergen Belsen.
She was first sent to Auschwitz,
then transferred to Bergen
Belsen only months before the
conclusion of World War II. In
the cattle-car conditions at
Bergen Belsen, she tied of typhus
at the age of sixteen. Anne
reminds us of the thousands upon
thousands of talents and the
millions of children and people
murdered by the Nazis. Knowing
the talent of this one child, one
can surmise about the number of
works of art that will never be
seen, the music that will never be
heard, the poetry that will never
be recited, the inventions that
will never be developed, the
theories that will never be
dreamed. Albert Einstein sur-
vived, but Anne Frank and many
like her did not. The loss to the
world and to civilization is
beyond comprehension.
11 a.m. Portuguese Synagogue,
Attending services at the
Portuguese Synagogue with all of
the thousands of brass can-
delabras lit must be an exquisite
site. The wooden floors show the
wear of thousands of feet over
three centuries. The synagogue,
built in 1675, was a place of
worship established by the Jews
expelled from Spain and Portugal
at the end of the 15th century.
11:30 a.m. Jewish Muweun.
1 Amsterdam
The Jewish Museum is housed
in an ancient guardhouse that
once served as a gate to the city
of Amsterdam. It contains
Jewish religious and historic
memorabilia from recent and past
generations of Jewish existence
in Amsterdam.
2 p.m.-Bus Trip to
Delft and The Hague
Leiden, an ancient Dutch city
where Rembrandt was born, is '
where the first university in the
Netherlands was built. Leiden
University was established to
honor the fact that the city of
Leiden was able to successfully
repel a Spanish invasion.
In Delft, only two factories
that handpaint pottery in the
18th century manner remain as
functioning factories today. The
idea for Delftware came from the
Orient, as sea traders brought
china back with them from the
Netherlands. Vermeer was also
born in Delft.
The Hague is the center of
Holland's government, the seat
of Parliament, the location of
foreign embassies, and the
capital of the Netherlands. Queen
Beatrix will live in one of her two
palaces here when renovations
are completed.
Schrevenhengen is a fishing
village on the North Sea with
wide beaches, lighthouses, and
picturesque fishing boats.
Madurodam is a miniature
village dedicated to George
Maduro by his parents. George
Maduro. a Dutch Jew, was killed
by the Nazis in Dachau during
World War II. The miniature
village contains the famous
buildings and sites of the
Netherlands done to scale.
Stephen and Caryn were
fascinated with seeing the
miniature copies of buildings
they had already visited, as the
Anne Frank house and the
Portuguese Synagogue, and with
the working models of the air-
port, freeway system, and canals.

10 a.m. Bus Tour to Volendam
and Marken
On the way to Volendam, the
bus passed over several polders,
lakes that have been drained by
windmills and by using dikes and
canals in order to provide land for
farming. We also passed
Monickendam which means
"dike built by monks." A dike

was built to protect the village
from the waters of the Zuider Zee.
Marken, a small village of
2,000 people who dress in
traditional costumes, was for-
merly and island but a dike was
built in the 1950s connecting
Marken to the mainland and
making it a peninsula. Because a
polder is being built quite near
Marken, the isolation of the
village will be gone, probably
causing great change in the
Vlodendam is a Catholic
fishing village, whereas Marken
is a Protestant village. Volendam
is very commercially and tourist
oriented. The lace-curtained
windows, neat homes with im-
maculate gardens are quite
quaint, though.
2 p.m. Stedelijk Museum,
After viewing many
questionable works of modern
art, we came upon the museums
treasures rooms filled with
magnificent Chagalls, Monets,
Picassos, Cezannes, and other
famous works. Seeing these
amazing creations after wading
through so much that, to us,
lacked in artistic value, was a

7 p.m. Same Saba, Amsterdam
Sama Saba is noted for its
Indonesian Ruistaffel (Rice
Table), a culinary experience to
have at least once. Ruistaffel
consists of rice served with about
twenty sides dishes of meats,
vegetables, fruits, and nuts, plus
dishes that combine these
elements. One dish was more
spicy than the next, some being
much too spicy for more than a
taste. Having glutted ourselves
on the many unusual delicacies,
our stomachs were glad that we

July 17.1980
10 a.m. London
We have come to London in
order to return to the United
States. El Al had cancelled its
Amsterdam to New York flight;
so we took British Airways to
London in the morning, trans-
ferring to an afternoon Pan Am
flight to the States.
With seven hours to wait in
London, we decided to rent a cab,
and to see as much of London as
possible. Derek, our cab driver,
took us immediately to
Buckingham Palace to see the
changing of the guards. Then he
drove us around the city,
showing us Parliament, West-
minister Abbey, Trafalgar
Square, the Tower of London,
Tower Bridge, Picadilly Circus,
and Hyde Park.
At Westminister Abbey tl
Queen's Rolls-Royce was nirwl
in front of the Abbey and itSI

Vanessa's Back Again
We had hoped that, somehow, the Fania
Fenelon story would die not the agony suffered by
victims of the Nazi scourge who beheld the callous-
ness of CBS-TV in casting Palestine Liberation
Organization propagandist Vanessa Redgrave in the
starring role, but the opportunity afforded Redgrave
to make hay out of this frank corporate heresy.
Apparently, we were wrong. Now comes
Redgrave to announce to one and all that her goal for
the universe is for Israel to be swept off the face of
the earth. Somehow to justify her ambition, she
suggests that her role as Fania Fenelon "proved"
that she is not an anti-Semite, only an anti-Zionist.
If CBS and Arthur Miller, author of Fenelon's
filmization of her story, aren't too busy counting
their money, perhaps they can finally come to see
that their argument in behalf of their decision to hire
Redgrave was arrant nonsense from the very
It was their Ivory Tower reasoning that came up
with the rationale that art and politics are two
separate things that Redgrave's life as a PLO'nik
had nothing to do with her performance as Fania
Fenelon. She had been chosen, they said, because she
was allegedly best for the part.
Oh yeah? Redgrave, who this week called for
extermination of Israel, doesn't think so. She's still
propagandizing for Yasir Arafat. And she's using her
performance in the miserable CBS production to
"prove" the Tightness of her position.
Dr. Neumann Passes
Especially at a time when the Zionist movement
is being delegitimized by Third World power politics,
it is important to take note of the passing of what
ZOA President Ivan J. Novick this week called "the
last of the giants who led in the struggle for the
establishment of the State of Israel."
We refer, of course, to the late Dr. Emanuel
Neumann, who died some two weeks ago at the age
of 87.
Twice a president of the Zionist Organization of
America, Dr. Neumann was in the august company
of other such distinguished leaders of the movement
as Dr. Abba Hillel Silver. From these Olympian
heights, it is difficult to imagine whom to add to
their number.
It was Dr. Neumann who. as early as 1943,
organized and directed the work of the Commission
on Palestine Surveys that presented an investment
proposal of approximately $200 million in irrigation
facilities and hydroelectric power development in the
Jordan Valley.
He will be missed in our time. For new spokes-
men and new teachers are needed, now that the anti-
Zionist campaign for delegitimacy gains both ac-
celeration and terrifying respectability.
An Important Lesson
Jews should learn an important lesson from the
recent experience in Evanston, Illinois: when the
community is united, Nazis run.
This is what happened in Evanston when 5,000
people gathered at Northwestern University in a
counter-demonstration to a rally being held by
American Nazis at Nearby Lovelace Park. The Nazis
stayed only for five minutes when they found a
hostile crowd of some 2,000 persons.
American Nazis have fled from other announced
rallies in recent years when they found community
hostility. Now in the wake of the upsurge of Nazism
as demonstrated by the bombing of a Paris syna-
gogue Oct. 3 in which four persons were killed, it is
essential to show this community support both here
and in Europe and elsewhere where the Nazis and
others pout their ugly brand of anti-Semitism and
racial hatred.

The Delegitimizing of Israeli J
THE ALARMING rise in anti-
Semitism can not be dismissed as
a seasonal thing. Neither is it
classically religious in its in-
spiration as waves of anti-
Semitism were in the past. Wit-
ness the feelings of anti-Semitism
in the African nations, which
certainly do not share with the
Europeans the doctrinal appeal
to hatred of the Jews rooted in
Christian thought.
Anti-Semitism today has dis-
covered a more effective means of
promoting its purpose. Anti-
Semitism today is a political
movement which, in fact, is
careful to clean its skirts of as-
sociation with historical Chris-
tian hatred of Jews. By dealing
with Jews (read Israel for Jews)
as Zionists, the latest incarnation
of anti-Semitism avoids the
charnel house stench of a violent
Christian past and takes on the
mantle of respectability that po-
liticizing any social or economic
phenomenon is natural heir to.
terms, the new anti-Semite
doesn't hate Jews: in fact, he is
quite willing to court any Jew
who would be willing to join him
in his war against political Juda-
ism (read Zionism). From this, it
is quite clear to see why Africans,
for example, are at ease in their
anti-Semitism, even though from
a white westerner's point of view,
African racial or religious bigotry
is a downright absurdity. The
African can simply say, just like
any other anti-Semite today, that
what he feels is not bigotry; it is
simply a political statement.

"reassessment" of relations
between the two countries
has not and will not take

stressed "the need" by the
U.S. "to understand and
address Israel's security
and economic problems."
The report was prepared by
staff members Harry Schochet
and Graeme Bannerman fol-
lowing their July visit to Israel
and was presented to the Com-
mittee on Oct. 15 by Sen. Richard
Stone (D., Fla), chairman of its

by the Jewish Telegraphic

Old Testament, for these gates
are open to all who are qualified
to enter; who find shelter and
security during the latter part of
their lives.
The Towers is situated next to
our Jewish Community Center
which renders additional service
and pleasure to all of our
residents including a swimming
pool, shuffle-board and cultural
activities. Social welfare and
public relations for the advantage
and wellbeing of our residents
and others handled by Tampa
Jewish Social Service and Tampa
Jewish Federation both housed
at the Jewish Community Center.
There is also a daily luncheon,
hot and full course, made
available five days a week at the
Jewish Community Center
subsidized by the Government,
and the payment by recipients is
minimal or gratis and is optional.
Another added feature is the
abailability of transportation for
shopping, doctors, dentists, etc.
This transportation is called
"Dial-A-Bus," and is made
possible by the Tampa Section,
National Council of Jewish
Women and the Tampa
Federation. Another bus is also
made available by Tom Reed for
shopping, pleasure tripe, theater,
In our own building we have a
beautiful lobby, a patio, a
recreation room for all social
events, including a montly birth-
day party, annual Chanukah and
Christmas Party, thus including
Jew and non-Jew for their mutual
pleasure and participation. Also
in our recreation room we have a
kitchen which enables us to serve
refreshments for our events. We
have a card and smoking room: a
beauty parlor and barber shop to
contribute to the maintenance of
our personal appearances. Our
personal mail boxes are
established inside the building,
thus assuring the delivery of our
social security checks or other
mail from possible vandalism.
We also have a lovely laun-
dery, which incidentally, is a
rendezvous for socializing that is
akin to the ancient and even
current areas where women
gather at the river to wash their
clothes in primitive fashion and
incidentally gossip and socialize.
We have programs furnished by
the Jewish Center Towers
Association and an outstanding
group, called "The Towerettes"
led by Ann Spector, who still
have enough spirit left to con-
tinue singing. We have two
pianos and a beautiful organ
which was donated to us by our
two generous residents, Mr. and
Mrs. Ben Hoff.
Our executive secretary is the
lovely and beautiful Juliet
Rodrigues who with charm,
limitless ability, and able
assistants is always ready to
listen, respond, and improve our
lot. Added to their service is a
group serving daily, the Jewish
Towers Volunteers.
College boys are stationed at
the desk all night to strengthen
our feeling ot security.
Last, but no least, we must
bring attention to Walter Kessler
and also a group of leading
citizens who have assumed the
burden of watchfulness geared
for our benefit.
My beloved David and I were
among the first to establish
residence at the Towers. Five
years later at age 92, he was
called to his eternal rest, secure in
his heart that his beloved Anna

And at the calm center of it all
is Leah Gottlieb, dressed in a
blue or grey or beige dress with a
delicate print to match her deli-
cately accented Hungarian
That slight accent is a constant
reminder of Leah Gottlieb's
origins. A reminder of how she
and her husband, Armin, arrived
in newly born Israel in 1949,
virtually penniless, but with the
urge to make a new life in a new
Her husband's family had run
a raincoat factory back in
Hungary. Leah had taken a
fashion course. So, naturally,
they began in the raincoat busi-
ness in Israel, making raincoats
for other firms, then for them-
among the biggest sellers in
Israel. So the Gottliebs switched
to bathing suits.
In the first year of operations,
they began exporting to Malta.
Nowadays, the list of well-
known women who wear Gottex
is long from Nancy Kissinger,
who has a standing order for 10
complete sets a year, to Sallie
I^ewis, wife of the U.S. Ambas-
sador to Israel. Samuel Lewis
(Sallie Lewis shares Queen Eliza-
beth's good taste and chose
"Amigo," too).
"Gottex makes a complete col-
lection for young and old," said
Leah Gottlieb.
"We do maternity bathing
suits, and bathing suits for
women who have had a breast re-
moved in a cancer operation. We
make some bathing suits for men
but that's not very in-
teresting. And, of course,
children's suits."
Not to mention the sportswear
and evening-wear collections de-
signed by daughter, Judith. But
that's another story.
Forty-five percent of Gottex's
multi-million-dollar export sales
goes to the U.S. "America is
most open to fashion, more open
than Paris."
LEAH GOTTLIEB begins her
day early, sitting in the roof
garden of her home high above
Tel Aviv. "I get my best ideas
then, as I sit there and watch the
early morning sun."
Where do these ideas for
prints, for styles, for complete
collections come from? From
art exhibitions, from art books,
from an old lamp or from an un-
expected "something" that
catches her eye.
Thus, the hit of the current
collection, recently shown to
hungry buyers during Israel's
Fashion Week the Egyptian
collection. This collection, in
beiges, browns, turquoise blues,
Middle Eastern arid tones, grew
out of a visit to New York's
Metropolitan Museum of Art.
"I WANTED to see the Haps-
burg Collection and had to walk
through the Egyptian depart-
ment to get to it. And there I saw
the many lovely frescoes. They
stuck in my mind."
At 62, Leah Gottlieb is a
grandmother. She may even look
like a grandmother. But she is as
modem, as far-out, as any
fashion-conscious 15-year-old.
As one fashion commentator
said: "Sometimes she comes into
work boiling inside with an idea.
And when it comes out as a
finished bathing suit, it is
always, always good."

highlights his definition of a

Is there today a difference
between the Jewish family and

that question would have been an
automatic and resounding yes.
Where we lived, how we spoke.
what we ate. what we did in

apart. The answer M not so
automatic today. I have asked
confinnands and young adults
and converts and grandparents
how Jewish and non-Jewish

11 All families may provide for
the physical needs of their
members: Jewish families also
enrich family life by sharing the
food, symbols and ritual objects
of the Jewish culture and to the
extent and sensitivity with which
they do that they foster and
imprint Jewish identity on family
and its members.

throughout history have always

What is it that makes Hillel
School so attractive to so many
parents? What is it that Hillel
School offers that other schools
do not? One answer is smaller
classes. Another answer is a
school which is very student
oriented. But the main answer is
the Judaic Studies program.
The Judaica Department has
five teachers: Rabbi Theodore
Brod, Sylvia Rich man, Miriam
Moscowitz, Jeanne Sandberg and
Ella Bryn. The latter two are the
wives of Rabbi Martin Sandberg
and Rabbi Nathan Bryn.
"Just what is the Judaica
Department?" those unfamiliar
with Hillel School ask.
Hebrew is a major of the
Judaica Department, Sylvia
Richman teaches Hebrew to the
primary grades, Jeanne Sand-
berg and Ella Bryn teach from
there, including Modern Hebrew
(the difference being Hebrew as it
is spoken today and Hebrew as in
the prayerbooks) Miriam
Moscowitz teaches Judaic
History, Ceremonies and
Customs to grades 5 through 8.
Rabbi Brod teaches all classes
during the course of the week,
concentrating on the older ones.
"I tell Bible stories to the first
and second grades," Rabbi Brod
said, "But from there on we
really work." He explained that
in the fourth grade they con-
centrate on the weekly Torah
portion, in the fifth and sixth
grades they work on Chumash
and Rashi. The seventh grade
studies the Prophets and the 8th
grade studies the Talmud.
That means that in addition to
the secular curriculum, all
students during the week have

AVODAH'S unique integration
of dance, drama, voice, and ritual
began with the collaboration of
Dr. Tucker, choreographer, and
Dr. Irving Fleet, composer. The
first joint work of Dr. Tucker and
Dr. Fleet was "In Praise," a
dance cantata based on the
traditional synagogue service. It
has been woven into an actual
religious service, but "In Praise"
(like all the repertory) is a
choreography whose impact is
universal. "In Praise" and
"Sabbath Woman" will be used
tonight, during the formal
Shabbat service.
In addition, AVODAH will
present two selections from its
concert repetoire. "Mother of the
Bride," set to the music of
Purcell's Trumpet Voluntary is a
comic piece depicting the
traumas of the "mother of the
bride." It is short and full of
humor. The more serious
presentation will be "Shevet
Achim Gam Yachad,*'
("Dwelling Together in Unity").
This piece utilizes the Biblical
quotation: "How good and
pleasant it is that brothers dwell
together" and explores in dance
how individuals and communities
interact, celebrate, help, nurture,
or care for one another. It is set to
music by the modern American
composer, Lukas Foss, and
evokes the Hasidic mood and the
Hasidic belief that one learns
about God through relating to
other people.

The little bookshop is one of

asked for when Project Renewal
came to Hatikvah- It is a tribute
to the innovative philosophy of
Project Renewal and to the in-
sight of the town planners that
the request was not frozen at
once beneath a snowfall of
statistics. The high adult
illiteracy rate and incidence of
teenage drop-outs could have
been devasting arguments
against it. "Who'll buy the
books?'' asked some doubters.
The local Steering Committee
stood fast. Its persistence and
enthusiasm helped gain the
approval of the bookshop by the
succession of higher echelons
which constitute Project
Renewal's system of checks and
The initial response from book
distributors and shop operators

had read the statistics too, and
they were not in business for
Hatikvah's health. An offer of
rent subsidy to the operating
firm was persuasive. The Sifri
Company found it was even able
to offer all of its books at
discount prices.
The Hatikvah bookshop
opened on June 15, 1980, eight
months from the idea's con-
ception. Sales began on the
sidewalk three days earlier
during the Hatikvah-Renewal
Book Fair, planned to coincide
with the annual fair in Tel Aviv's
Municipal Square which usually
attracts tens of thousands.
Hatikvah residents bought more
books at their local fair than Sifri
sold at its Tel Aviv.

months after its opening, the
interior of the bookshop with its
red carpet and steel shelves
lacquered a soft yellow-green

Dorit, sensitive about the
reputation of the neighborhood
which she has grown to love, says
there has been no pilferage at the
workshop. "The people here are
proud of this shop. They think of!
it as theirs."
A boy of about 15 leans his
metalized high-back bike against
the showwindow and enters the
shop, sporting jeans, jogging
shoes, necklaces, wraparound
sunglasses and a phosphorescent
crash helmet. He plunks a
textbook list down on the
counter. While Dani is getting
the books together, the boy
wanders around the shop. When
his schoolbooks are ready in an
attractive plastic bag, he adds a
translation of "Zorba" and the
latest book by the Hebrew poet
Yehuda Amichai to the pile. He
pays and leaves. Not a word is
Dani looks after him like a
proud and anxious father.
"I know this kid. He's still a
little unsure of himself behind
those sunglasses. But some day,
he'll talk to me about those
books, and I'll put him together
with a couple of other kids who
read. This store is going to help
him turn around."
Dam believes Project Renewal
will turn around Hatikvah as
well. "The more you find right

And the better you feel about
yourself, the more you can do.

one-sentence description of

The Delegitimizing of Israel
Iraq-Iran War Brings Arab
World Division into Open
NEW YORK (ZINS) According to the
[ New York Times, Iraq's war with Iran has brought
t into the open the long existing basic division in the |
I Middle East. It has divided the Arab world. It has |
I drawn the United States and the Soviet Union more |
I deeply and directly into the area. It has been a blow |
I for the Palestinians, and it has given Israel a respite |
| by moving the Israeli-Palestinian issue off the center
i stage.
THE SOVIET UNION, in signing a formal I
j treaty of friendship with Syria, reentered an arena, I
I for practical purposes, which has been excluded for |
I years. Quoting Arab diplomats, the paper says, that |
the treaty has extended a Soviet protection umbrella I
over Syria and, by extension, part of Lebanon as |
well. According to the diplomats the Syrians have
been worrying about the possibility of an Israeli pre-
| emptive strike against them; they believe that the
I treaty with Moscow has removed this threat.
They say that the treaty may also make Begin
I think twice before going formally to annex the
I Golan. They also believe that the treaty removes the
f threat of any large scale Israeli military intervention
| in Lebanon.
The Iraqi-Iranian war has also resulted in a
I major American gain in the region. The U.S. has
I been able to transform its latent alliance with Saudi
1 Arabia into a real one. The Saudis not only accepted
I but requested radar surveillance plans and with them
I an American presence they had long rejected, the

it is in the new anti-Semitism
A major technique in the war
against Israel's legitimacy is the
international "debunking" of the
Holocaust. Much has been
written about this, although few
observers have yet to see it in the
sense that the Holocaust was
conceived as a religious and racial
act. while the "debunking" of the
Holocaust is aimed at recasting it
as a political event.
In any case, the campaign
against the Holocaust by the new
anti-Semitism therefore leaves
Jews without allies. The western
nations, except on the most
abstract ceremonial level, offer no
resistance to the anti-Semitism
THERE IS an exception to
this, and the exception is a hard
one to deal with. It is the Soviet
Union. The western nations are
perfectly willing to forget the
Holocaust, whether for political
or religious reasons. It is all the
same to them.
Why, for example, should the
French care? They contributed tc
the Holocaust with an anti
Semitic delight that even today
can hardly be disguised. And. in
the end. what did the western
nations as a whole see of tht
Holocaust anyway? But the
Soviets must perforce have
longer memories about past
history because they beheld the
Holocaust from the vantage
point of a front row seat to the
The main "manufacturing"
centers of Nazi genocide were
largely in eastern Europe, which
the Soviets saw firsthand well
before any of the western allies
carried out their inaugural acts of
liberation of a Hitlerian death
PRIOR TO that, they were
witness to the Nazi proclivity for
mass murder during the invasion
of their own country, which they
were able to document without
the hindrance of last-minute,
feverish efforts by the invaders to
cover up their dirty work as had
occurred in the east European
concentration camps.
The reason is that Germans
were never in any one place in the.
Soviet Union long enough to be
able to do anything about that.
The German mass murders were
therefore more external than in
eastern Europe committed
without benefit of a con-
centration camp setting that
could disguise the work within.
There is also a sense in Poland,
in Hungary, in Czechoslovakia
that the Nazi death centers were
foreign to them, the result of
invaders who built them, and
therefore unreal. In this, Ger-
many today shares the very same
sense of the Nazi brutality.
Because most of these death
centers were not on German soil,
they are also external and hence
foreign to them. And for some, it
is the jumping off point for the
view that such death centers
never existed at all.
The Russians have no such
strained cosmetic perceptions.
They shout from the rooftops
that the Nazi violence was done
to them. They were its victims
because of their active resistance
no less than the Jews were its
victims because of their passive
IT IS a strange simultaneity of
experience for Jews, a strange
marriage of bedfellows. It is
strange because the Russians,
who document and mark' the
Holocaust with the same zeal as
the Jews, are at the same time
perpetrators and supporters of
the current international move-
ment to delegitimize Israel. They
are among the most virulent-
! practitioners of world political
I anti-Semitism.
How does Soviet zeal for
documentation of the Hitler
Holocaust show itself? Can Jews
ever come to experience the
benefit of the common cause be-
tween them? For more on thus,

Jabotinsky Was an Architect of Israel's Statehood
Prime Minidler of Israel
It was the summer of 1940. For
the second time in 25 years, the
lights went out in Europe. But
the darkest of nights descended
upon Jewry, whom the enemy
sought utterly to destroy. In
those days, a cry went up to
heaven, the likes of which had not
been heard since God created
man. and man created the devil:
u hy had u-e not hearkened to the
call ofJabotinsky (
For indeed, when the Jewish
masses were standing on the
brink of the abyss, it was he who
appeared before them not as
prophet of the Holocaust, but as
a man bearing the message of
redemption, and pointing the
way to rescue. He made
superhuman efforts to carry them
across the abyss to the land of
the living, to the shores of safety
before they were overtaken by
the sword. However, led astray
by their leaders, they refused to
listen. Now, in their sorrow and
despair they recalled his words
but there was no one who could
save their situation.
For us, his students, who
drank deep at the fountain of his
wisdom, witnessed his struggles,
and accompanied him throughout
his wanderings, he was the
leader, the commander, the
teacher. Above all, to us he was
the bearer of the message of hope.
And when he died there died
with him the hope itself. How
would we be able to continue
living without him? How would
we find our way in the murky
darkness that surrounded us?
Would we be able to raise the flag
again? Would we know without
him how to save our people,
liberate its land and give it a
State of its own? That is what we
asked ourselves in our loss and
course of the 40 years of his |
activities, had molded and
directed a generation which
would assure continuity and go
on striving in his image the
image of a fighter who believed in
his mission, the image of a rebel
and dissident. In this, he gave
supreme expression to his im-
measurable greatness.
Who is the fighter who believes
in what he fights for? Surely it is
the man who is always prepared
to .begin anew in order to im-
plement his beliefs. This
preparedness is imprinted in the
history and traditions of the most
militant among nations the
Jewish people.
The Tablets of the Law were
shattered and had to be handed
down a second time; the First
Temple was destroyed and the
Second Temple was erected on
the site of the first; the sanctuary
was defiled, purified and
rededicated: there was the rising
of the Zealots and the Bar Koch-
ba revolt, Jerusalem and Yavne;
the going out into exile and the
Return at some mysterious
call to the homeland. Despite
everything, the Jewish people
was always ready to begin anew |
this was the supreme com-
mand that had been given to. and
accepted by, Israel.
IT IS THIS command of
Jewish tradition that Jabotinsky
took to heart and turned into a
- guide and mentor for himself. He
was always ready to start afresh.
He never despaired. He always
believed in the justice of his
struggle, and. always fought for
bis beliefs. He was always ready,
whenever one instrument was
shattered, to set up a second.
Who is the dissident-rebel? It
is the man who, convinced of the
truth of his mission, ia prepared
to be in the minority, to breathe
the atmosphere of hatred.
Zeev Jabotinsky was born on Oct. 17, 1880. On the
twentieth anniversary of the death of Jabotinsky [he
died in August, 1940) Herut leader Menachem
Begin, now Israel's Prime Minister, addressed his
followers in Ramat Gan's Dov Gruner Square. Dov
Gruner was a member of the Irgun Tzvai Leumi
Etzel underground army, commanded by Begin
and loyal to the teachings of Jabotinsky. Gruner,
who was caught and hanged by the British became a
symbol of the Resistance struggle, described in
Begin's book 'The Revolt.' These extracts from
Menachem Begin's tribute to Jabotinsky convey
what Jabotinsky meant to his followers in terms of
leadership, loyalty and personal example. The
Jabotinsky centenary [1880-1980] is now being
marked in Israel and all over the Jewish world:
contempt, and yet endure and
persist in his revolt for a just
cause. This is the man who not
only does not acquiesce in reality,
but who looks upon a change of
reality as a command from above.
This preparedness to cede
from the majority and to rebel
is also embedded in the deep
recesses of Jewish tradition.
From it earliest appearance in the
arena of history, the Jewish
people drew apart trom the many,
gave up the comforts of joining
their ranks, and continued to
rebel against them, despite all the
sacrifices involved in such revolt
and dissidence.
Again, Jabotinsky acted in
accordance with this national
tradition when he came to rescue
his people from the fate that its
enemies had decided for it. From
the episode of the Jewish Legion
during World War I. to his ef-
forts to establish a Jewish army
during World War II,
Jabotinsky s path was the same.
THIS PATH he mapped out
for himself, not only by his
thoughts, his writings and his
speeches, but particularly by the
model that he provided by his
own life to the generation that
follows his teachings. For that
reason, despite the departure in
the very midst of the days of
destruction and enslavement, of
the bearer of this hope, the hope
is not lost.
Among Jabotinsky s deeds
and achievements are the Jew-
ish Legion; the idea of the Jewish
State which he carried and im-
planted in face of those who
denied it; the idea of a Jewish
Army which he bore aloft in face
, of scorn; and the armed revolt
which blazed the road of
redemption for the nation. He
who acted thus what con-
nection has he with the tragic
figure which people seek to
ascribe to him? Surely his is the
glory of victory.
The tragedy of his time is not
Jabotinsky's but of the people
who refused to hearken to the
voice of the prophet of truth but
followed not for the first time
in its history false prophets.
For this they paid a bloody price,
the likes of which were unknown
even in our tear-stained history.
The tragedy is that of the erring
leaders who snatched fragments
of thought from him, scraps of
ideas, but tragically late in the

Court Hears Appeals
The Supreme Court opened its
hearings this week on the appeals
by mayors Fahd Kawasme of
Hebron and Mohammed Milhim
of Halhoul against their
deportation. The appellants
remained confined to Ramie jail,
and their attorney, Felicia
Langer, argued that the
proceedings should not begin
while they are absent from the
courtroom. It was finally agreed
that the two mayors would
appear in court on Monday.
The courtroom was jammed
with the families and friends of
the deportees, members of their
respective town councils, foreign
and Israeli journalists and
representatives of the Red Cross.
Two Communist MKs, Meir
Wilner and Charlie Biton, were
also present.
The opening argument by
Langer was that the deportation
order against the mayors violated
Jordanian law which still applies
on the West Bank and was
contrary to international law.
The State, represented by at-
torney Dorit Beinish, presented
an opinion which the high court
has accepted in previous cases.
while the Jordanian constitution
prohibits the deportation of a
citizen, the Supreme Court has
held in the past that the
emergency regulations of the
Palestine Mandate superceded
Jordanian law. The regulations,
which apply in both Israel and
Jordan, permit deportations for
security reasons.
Langer countered by noting
that in practice, the Jordanian
authorities have not deported
citizens since they give
precedence to their constitution.
Kawasme and Milhim
meanwhile ended their 10-day
hunger strike. They said they did
so out of respect for the Supreme
Court which was about u> hear
their case. Meanwhile, a wave of
demonstrations and stone-
throwing incidents on the West
Bank in support of the mayors
caused the Military Government
to issue stern orders to the
population to desist. West Bank
mayors were warned not to
participate in any demon-

"Undermining Israeli con-

While the report was prepared
prior to the signing Oct. 17 of the
U.S.-Israel oil agreement that
assures U.S. supplies to Israel in
time of emergency although at
the highest U.S. prices paid for
imported oil, the report's con-
I elusions set forth a number of
'other "tangible steps" to
| alleviate Israeli concerns.
THESE INCLUDE a recycling
of Israel's debt servicing into
programs which can strengthen
Israel's economic base by im-
proving its ability to export
goods and technology to the U.S.
Another suggestion is lifting of
U.S. restrictions on Israel's
military export sales which would
' allow Israel to sell military items
which it produces or which is
. surplus to its needs to third world
countries which are friendly to
the U.S.
International financial
assistance also is recommended.
Israel is excluded from develop-
ment capital under most inter-
national financial institutions
because its per capita income
level is too high but these insti-
tutions do not take into account a
country's per capital debt.
Israeli participation in U.S. aid
projects for Egypt was urged.
This could serve "as a natural
bridge" for stimulating Israel-
Egypt normalization eco-
1 nomically and be a source of eco-
nomic benefit to Israel, the report
"THERE CAN be no doubC
that the body politic of Israel is

leaders have been surprised, dis-
couraged and even angered by
what is perceived as a lack of
interest and understanding by
the U.S. of the effect of the peace
process upon Israel."

Navon Agrees
Eight-Point Program Revealed
** r*mr*Ba a. mr m* CPVTPrl GllKiortc nr\t Mkor.lnn
(JTA) President Yitzhak
Navon and President Anwar
Sadat announced here their
agreement on an eight-point
program to expedite the nor-
malization process between
Egypt and Israel. It is expected
to be ratified by their respective
governments and become
operable in the near future.
The two Presidents, who met
for 80 minutes at Sadat's villa in
this Nile delta village where he
was born, also discussed the
Egyptian-Israel autonomy
negotiations for the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. But they had no
statements to make on that
subject except for the expressed
hope that a breakthrough in the
autonomy talks will be achieved
"AS TO autonomy, we have
agreed that there should be more
effort put into a full autonomy
process and this is the role of our
governments." Sadat said, in-
dicating that Navon is not here to
discuss the autonomy issues.
The Egyptian President noted
significantly that autonomy and
normalization were treated on
different levels and were not
directly connected in their talks.
Addressing a joint press con-
ference in the garden of his
residence. Sadat said, "Let us not
link this and that."
He conceded that Egypt and
Israel hold different views on the
question of full autonomy. But as
to normalization, "we have to do
everything to consolidate the
relations between Israel and
Egypt," he said.
Sadat gave Navon the honor of
announcing that the subjects on
which they agreed will be
presented to the joint Israeli-
Egyptian committee which will
convene at an early date either in
El Arish or Beersheba to confirm
the agreements and put them
into action.
The following points were
agreed to with respect to nor-

Sadat announced that ad-
ditional projects discussed were a
future highway linking Eilat with
Egypt across Sinai and an
Egyptian-Israeli railroad.
THE MEETING: was a follow
(up of the two-hour' formal
meeting held by Sadat and
Navon at the Abdin- Palace in
Cairo. They agreed at that time
that a second formal wast Jag was
needed to conclude discussion of
several subjects not resolved at
their initial get-together.
Both Presidents had their
moments of embarrassment at
the press conference. Sadat
appeared upset when a reporter
asked if he would cede Yamit. an
Israeli town in northern Sinai, to
Israel as a gesture of good-will.
He replied that such a move
would be contrary to the Camp
David agreements. "It would be
against all that has been agreed
and understood. I cannot make
gestures on land or sovereignty,"
he said.
Navon seemed disconcerted
when he was asked if he had
instructions from Tel Aviv to
refrain from dealing with the
question of autonomy. "Not1
every report from Tel Aviv is
true." he said.
ANOTHER issue raised by
Navon was the continuing search
for the remains of Israeli soldiers
still listed as missing in action in
the 1973 war. He said the
Egyptians have been very
cooperative in that matter and
will continue to extend any
assistance necessary in the
search for the MI As.
All in all, Navon's two official
meetings with Sadat seem to
have gone well. The Israeli
President stressed after their
initial discussion that he had not
come to Egypt to negotiate in
detail over outstanding issues
but to air and review the
situation and consider ways and
means to promote the continuing
He said rthat Sadat has been
consistent in his approach to the
issues and stands by the adress
he made to the Knesset on his
historic visit to Jerusalem in
November, 1977.
AT AN impromptu press
conference, Sadat said,, tne
question of "full autonomy" had
been raised, emphasizing the
word "full," and also the issue of
Jerusalem which he sees as
related to it. "Yes, we have raised
the question of Jerusalem," he
said. "After all. this is part of the
general autonomy issue."
Significantly, the Egyptian
media, including its French and
English as well as Arabic
publications, gave extensive
coverage to the Navon visit.
Front page articles and
photographs were devoted to
Navon, describing his personality
in detail.
