The Helms "amend-
ment," which would with-
draw the jurisdiction of the
federal courts from cases
involving "voluntary
prayers in public schools,"
is dead at least this ses-
sion of Congress. After
passing the Senate, the
"amendment," which is a
statutory revision of the
jurisdiction of the federal
courts and not an amend-
ment to the Constitution,
was the subject of a dis-
charge petition, circulated
by Rep. Philip Crane (R.,
111.), designed to pry the bill
out of the House Judiciary
The discharge petition, which
at one time had over 170 sig-
natures, fell short of the 218

partially because the Judiciary
Subcommittee on Courts, Civil
Liberties and the Administration
of Justice, chaired by Robert
Kastenmeier ID., Wis.), promised
and held several weeks of hear-
ings on the Bill (Sees. 11 and 12
of S.450) in late July and August.
AT THOSE hearings, a broad
coalition of Protestant and
Jewish groups, of which ADL
was a leading constituent, testi-
fied in opposition to the bill. The
opposition received strong
support from John Harmon of
the Justice Department, who
condemned the bill as uncon-
stitutional and as bad policy.
Strong opposition came from,
among others. Rev. William
Howard, president of the
National Council of Churches,
representing 32 Protestant
denominations, and Robert
Campbell of the Baptist Joint
Committee on Public Affairs,
representing the eight national
'Baptist conventions in the
United States.
Advocates of the "amend-
ment" from evangelical Christian
groups, such as the Campus
Crusade for Christ, the National
Association of Evangelicals and
Rev. Jerry Falwells Moral
Majority, told the committee
that a vote against the Helms
"amendment" could "well ac-

Is there a nicer way to celebrate New Year's Eve> than with
good friends in the warm and happy setting of one's synagogue
social hall? We have heard about two such bashes being planned
this year at Congregation Rodeph Shoiom and at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek. A New Year's Eve "Masqued Ball" is the
theme for Congregation Rodeph Shoiom s party. Beginning at 9
p.m. those who attend will be transported into a glittering world
of winter wonder and mystique. A gourmet dinner, dance band,
champagne and breakfast complete the bill. Doesn't that sound
terrific? Congregation Schaarai Zedek promises "One Burst of
Fun in '81" with loads of balloons ready to carry that theme out.
Hors d'oeuvres, an open bar, live music, and a champagne
breakfast will certainly insure that the evening will be a real
smash, beginning at 9:30 p.m. Both of these parties certainly do
sound well planned and fun after all. what a nice way to bring
in the new year with good friends.

under fire from American Jewish
leaders for reportedly having I
advocated the establishment of a
Palestinian state headed by
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion chief Yasir Arafat during his
conversations with Soviet leaders I
in Moscow last month.
His remarks there were con-
tained in classified cables, sent
by U.S. Ambassador Thomas
Watson in Moscow to the State
Department, which was subse
quently leaked to the media.
At a press conference after the
meeting. Percy said he would
never approve of any "Pales
tinian entity if it were a threat to
Israel." He said Arab leaders
must openly endorse Israel's s\-
ereignty and right to exist with
defensible borders as a "con-
dition precedent" to becoming
part of the ongoing peace nego-
tiations. Percy also said that
Arafat was "absolutely un-
acceptable" as a leader under
current circumstances.
HE SAID that while he
supports the Camp David ac-
cords, he considered the for-
mation of a Palestinian entity to
necessarily involve Jordan in the
peace process. He spoke of such
an entity as a demilitarized prov-
ince federated with Jordan but
one that would have its own
police lorce and militia
Percy acknowledged that the
storm over the remarks at

Dr. James Strange, professor
and acting chairman of the
Religious Studies department of
the University of South Florida,
reports there is progress being
made in the development of a
Center of Jewish Studies at that
The brain-child of Dr. David
Weinstein. past president and
Chancellor of Sperltus College of
.Judaica in Chicago, the project is
now working its way through
faculty committees and is ex-
pected to become a reality in 12
"to 15 months. The concept has
passed the initial review neces-
sary by the faculty and ad-
Dr. Weinstein visited the USF
campus in November and lee
lured on "Jewish Studies, A
Historical Perspective." This
lecture apparently served as the
final step to sell the faculty both
on Dr. Weinstein and on the
merits of the proposal.
The goals and objectives of the
proposed center are stated as
To expose students to the
widest possible spectrum of the
global Jewish experience during
the past three millenia.
To serve to unite various
ulemic disciplines and deepen
the appreciation of many aspects
of historical and humanistic
study for nonspecialists and
specialists alike.
To enable students of
variegated backgrounds to
specialize in degree programs of
ludaica integrating their studies
at USF with study abroad
(Oxford. Jerusalem).
To educate and certify
teachers of Judaic and Hebraica
for all types of schools, public
and private, through approved
state teacher certification
To establish a community of
scholars which combine promi-
nent scholarships with inspired
teaching, etc.
It is expected that the center
will be funded externally, that is
not by the state university
system, but through foundations,
corporations, and private in-
dividuals and would have Dr.
Weinstein as the director. The
USF Foundation would ad-
! minister the funds and it is hoped
that endowments will be for-
thcoming. It is expected that a
librarian of Judaica would be
hired and that the Judaic
holdings of the I'SF library
would be greatly increased.
Faculty of very high caliber are
expected to be attracted to the
campus through endowed chairs.
Classes are anticipated being
offerred in Medieval and modern
Hebrew. Jewish Philosophy.
Literature and Jewish History It
is anticipated that students
would receive substantial
scholarship support and that
these students would come from
all over the country. Research
and publication are two areas of
prime concern lor t his center
Dr. Strange, acting chairman
of the Task Force in Jewish
Studies, said,"I'm sure that the
center will be a reality." He went
on to explain that while at the
present time a major in Jewish
Studies is offerred. there are only
two students majoring in mat
area. He expects substantial
changes in this regard with the
establishment of a Center for
Jewish Studies on the campus in

Proclaim Liberty!
Proclaim Liberty!!
We have the opportunity this year in Tampa to
begin the New Year with an exciting evening, a
joyful evening, a proud evening.
"Proclaim Liberty," a musical show combining
our Biblical heritage, freedom heritage and social
justice heritage will be presented at Tampa Theatre
with Jewish stars of world renown. Herschel Ber-
nardi, Lou Jacobi, Misha Raitzin, Kenny Karen,
Belle Kaufmann (granddaughter of Sholom
Aleichem), and Elaine Petricoff and ... the list
This is the type of show we've often heard about
being held in other cities but never had the oppor-
tunity to enjoy in our own town. Now we do! This is a
night which will be long remembered after the final
curtain. For the young and not so young, this
evening can be enjoyed by all.
Do yourself a favor. Be at Tampa Theatre, Jan.
18. And ask a friend to join you for an evening you'll
not soon forget.
A New Misguided Missile
The American Jewish community has had the
misfortune of having to deal with diplomatic mis-
guided missiles in almost every Administration since
1948. President Eisenhower had John Foster Dulles.
President Nixon had Williarri Rogers. President
Carter had Andrew Young. And now, even before the
Reagan Administration has been sworn into office,
along comes Sen. Charles Percy soaring off into
space from his own launching pad.
The Republican solon of Illinois, who is slated to
head the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, decided, in his conversation with Soviet
leaders, to preempt President-Elect Reagan and his
entire new Cabinet to formulate foreign policy for the
United States. In remarks reeking of political hali-
tosis, Percy reportedly advocated a Palestinian state
headed by the machinegun-toting chief of the
Palestine Liberation Organization, Yasir Arafat.
To be sure, Percy told his Russian hosts that
Arafat "is a terrorist, he has done some dastardly
things." But, the legislator noted, the darling of the
international jet-setting bomb squad "has a com-
pelling desire to be a chief of state, no matter how
small it is." How considerate of Percy to think of
this. How compassionate. How noble. That's like re-
ing the local mugger with his own territory and
lady supply of victims just so long as he
in't stray into the next neighborhood. Of course,
Arafat would like to be a chief of state, "no matter
how small it is." For Arafat, that small state is
Possibly the best evaluation of Percy's contri-
bution to non-peace in the Mideast was made by
1'abbi Joseph Sternstein, president of the American
Zionist Federation. He pointed out effectively, if
perhaps undiplomatically, that Percy's suggestion
has reduced "morality to the dungheap of civili-

A military court found him guilty
of "alteration of the public order,
incitement to group violence, and
violence against the police force,"
and sentenced him to six years in

what the Argentine military refer
to as "the dirty war" against

Linowitz Says;
sponsor any public Jewish
religious event within the realms-
spheres of Tampa government.
As I observed the kindling of
the grand size Menorah (20 ft.)
being lit, I was filled with a
mixture of jubilation and trepi-
dation. For let us not forget,
although we are living in an
Americanized society, it is a
Christian country. We dwell
within an assimilated integrated
Jewish community in a period of
Jewish apathy, religious
ignorance, with little observance
in our homes. Jewish nationalism
is in limitation, but religious
observance little.
We have erected beautiful,
multi-million dollar synagogues
with expensive rabbis, cantors,
educational directors and huge
budgets; yet, alas many of our
anointed spiritual leaders have
succumbed to the demands and
whims from their officers.
Results, even many of our con-
servative congregations have
drifted into a spiritual abyss,
from our sacred Torah moorings.
On the other hand, we find to-
day the "Chabad-Lu Bavitcher"
movement all over the world
seeking valiantly to return our
people in particular our youth,
to God, to Torah and to the
Jewish way of life. Furthermore.
I state uneqivocally, that no
religious American Jewish Con-
gregation has worked as dili-
gently, fought with tenacity-
fervor in behalf of God and Torah
and Yiddishkeit as Chabad. No
other group (in my opinion) has
labored as zealously to enlighten
our college youth (confused),
farblondget, involved in drugs,
pagan cults, etc.. seeking to
return our Jewish college
students to God, Shabbat.
Kashrut, Prayer, etc. than this
Once again, let me reiterate,
that no Jewish element (in my
opinion) has been working with
an enthusiasm and religious piety
in order to discourage the
American Jewish Youth from
intermarriage and from, God
fordid, "Shmaad" Apostacy
than Chabad. It has not been
the American Orthodoxy, Con-
servative or Reform elements.
Alas, we have merely produced a
weekly computerized, system-
atized, mechanized, atuomation
of Bar-Bat Mitzvah whose
Hebrew schools are predicated on
the aforementioned pillars.
I therefore salute the "Chabad
House" in its initial successful
gigantic public religious en-
deavor in our city, and say to my
colleagues. Rabbis Lazar Rivkin
and Yakov Werde, "Ashraichem
Chaverim, Yhee Birkas Hashem
Aleichem, Viyal Milachtichem."
May Gods* Divinely ordained
blessings prevail. May all of your
contemplations, pursuits and
endeavors be spiritually crowned
with fruition and success.

Israel Did Not Get Full
Credit For Concessions
- U.S. special Ambassa-
dor Sol Linowitz admitted
here that Israel did not re-
ceive the credit due it for
the concessions it made to
achieve its peace treaty
with Egypt. He attributed
that oversight to the fact
that the western media was
preoccupied with the issue
of Israel's settlements on
the West Bank.
Linowitz made his remarks at a
meeting with Israel's autonomy
negotiating team. He said he felt
sorry that Israel's concessions for
peace were not fully recognized
because he saw in Israeli policy a
genuine desire to reach an agree-
ment on autonomy for the West
Bank and Gaza. He suggested
that Israel should have made
clear from the start that it did not
, intend to build many more settle-
ments on the West Bank.
LINOWITZ was here on what
v >s widely regarded as his final
diplomatic mission for the out-
going Carter Administration. He
arrived from Cairo where he met
with President Anwar Sadat and
other Egyptian officials. He paid
a brief courtesy call on Prime
Minister Menachem Begin and to
meet with him again for a work-
ing session.

Jewish Chaplain
On Assignment In Naples
Helps Earthquake Victims
A Jewish chaplain in the U.S.
Army Reserve helped in efforts to
provide a "First Aid" type of
relief to the victims of the earth-
quake in July, according to a
report received by the Com-
mission on Jewish Chaplaincy of
JWB. '
"I was assigned to the U.S.
Naval base in Naples to provide
Manukkah coverage on a two-
week assignment," Chaplain
(LTC) Donald Nahum Cohen
wrote Rabbi Joseph B. Messing,
Director of JWB's Armed Forces
and Veterans Services and Com-

Naples was the main area hit and
that damage and casualties were
not too heavy. The Italians
wanted to handle everything by
themselves and the military here
just stood by.
Within 48 hours the
magnitude of the disaster became
known and an all-out rescue and
relief operation began. Choppers
flew in from the Southern
European Task Force at Vicenza
and tents and blankets came
from Kamstein, Germany, and
the States.
"One hundred and fifty GIs
moved in to teach the natives
how to set up the tents. But the

people were left without a roof.

Rabbi Edmond Beldreb is a

of the towns he covers as he
drives through scenic Normandy
on roads flanked by high hedge
rows which sometimes form a

Among other things, St. Lo
was one of the towns Gen. George
I'at ton made famous. It was from
here in June, 1944, that his forces
broke out of German encircle-
ment, and the enemy front to the
West collapsed. Behind the roads
traveled on by the rabbi are the
D-Day beaches, names that will
forever ring in American history:

TRUE, there probably were no
Jews here when Patton's Third

The rabbi's base is Caen,
located in the department of
Calvados in northern France, and
from here Jewish communities
receive their spiritual leader.
THERE ARE eight Jewish
families in Kvreux, eight families
in Lisieux, 15 families in Cher-
bourg, 200 families in LeHavre,
and 400 families in Rouen. And in
Caen, almost entirely rebuilt
after the war, there are about 100
Jewish families. After World War
II, the Jews of Caen built their
own synagogue on 16 Avenue de
la Liberation.
The Jews of Normandy are a
close-knit group. New superhigh-
ways and high-speed trains offer
them the opportunity to go from
Caen to Paris in two hours; from
Rouen to Paris in a little over an
hour. All roads lead to Paris.
Nearly half of 700,000 Jews in
France live in and around the
French capital.
But there are also inter-city
activities. The Jews of I>eHavre
and Caen hold joint activities:
seminars, lectures, films.
Caen itself has a small but
active Jewish community. They
are proud. They are not afraid,
and the young people are ac-
tivists. Many arrived here from
North Africa in the 1960s; others
came here from that center of
Jewish life, Strasbourg.
IN THE summer time,
thousands of Jews also come to
Deauville, the world-renowned
resort of casinos, polo matches
and horse racing. In the summer
months, I was told, there is even

New Christian Right
Political Profile Anathema to American Democracy
Last in a Three-Part Series
There are additional concerns
that require careful analysis and
scrutiny by political leaders and
the American people.
The campaign by some mem-
bers of the New Christian Right
to elect born-again Christians
only to public office is anathema
to everything American democ-
racy stands for. It violates
Article 6 of the United States
Constitution, which forbids the
exercise of "a religious test" for
any citizen running for public
The American people must re-
pudiate that anti democractic
practice. Candidates must con-
tinue to be judged on the basis of
their competence, their integrity,
and their commitment to the
I Egyptian Official Meets I
With Carter in B.C. |
Vice President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt met with President Carter
for a half hour at the White
House and with Vice President-
Elect George Bush and
President-elect Ronald Reagan's
foreign policy advisers. Mubarak
came to Washington as a per-
sonal emissary of President
Anwar Sadat.
According to Egyptian sources
here, one purpose of his mission
is to speed up the deliveries to
U.S. military equipment to
Egypt. Mubarak met with
Secretary of State Edmund
Muskie and Defense Secretary
Harold Brown after leaving the
White House.
Mubarak was sent here by Sadat
to make it clear to the Reagan
people that any tilt in U.S. policy
toward Israel, as indicated in
some of Reagan's election
campaign statements, would
place Egypt in an untenable
position and be harmful to the
Middle East peace process.
President Carter told reporters
after his meeting with Mubarak
that he had been given a very
important message from Sadat.
He declined to disclose its
contents. He had high praise for
the Egyptian President whose
initiative in visiting Jerusalem in
November, 1977 opened the way
for the Camp David talks and the
peace treaty between Israel and
Carter called his personal
relationship with Sadat one of the
most satisfying of his tenure in
the White House. He also
stressed that ties between Egypt
and the U.S. were indisoluble in
this time of trouble in the Middle
East," an apparent reference to
the Iraqi-Iranian war.
Mubarak extended Sadat's
invitation to President and Mrs.
Carter to visit Egypt. White
House sources said Carter would
not embark on such a visit before
leaving office Jan. 20.

common welfare. That is the
American way.
THE MOST effective critique
of "single polities'" campaigns
and candidates is provided by the
leading Evangelical journal.
Christianity Today (Sept. 19,
"Moral Majority and Christian
Voice appear to emphasize the
first three principles of Evan-
gelicals for social action more
than the others (that is, the
family; every human life is
sacred, meaning abortion; reli-
gious and political freedom are
God-given inalienable rights.
The Bible deals with all of them.
In fact, probably more space in
the Bible is devoted to calls for
justice and the care for the poor
than to the fact that human life is
sacred, though none can deny
that both are Biblical mandates.
"The concerns of the religious
lobbies will appeal to a broader
range of Christians to the extent
that they emphasize these other
equally biblical principles of
justice, peace, stewardship of our
resources, and care for the poor,
as well as profamily and prolife
issues. It is a case of these ye
ought to do but not to leave the
others undone.' Too narrow a
front in battling for a moral
crusade, or for a truly biblical in-
volvement in politics, can be
disastrous. It could lead to the
election of a moron who holds the
right view on abortion.''
MANY of us are concerned
about the militant apocalyptic
style of some New Christian
Right spokesmen. This mentality
dates back to antiquity when in
every century where there was
vast social disarray and disorien-
talion, there emerged a wide-
spread yearning among the
masses, especially the poor and
disinherited, for a Messianic
savior joined by an Emperor of
the I^st Days who would relieve
society of its oppression and
moral decay and usher in the
Millenium "in which the world
would be inhabited by a
humanity at once perfectly good
and perfectly happy" (Norman
Cohn, The Pursuit of the
This revolutionary apocalypse
was dominated by eschatological
phantasies of a new Paradise on
earth, a world purged of suffering
and sin, a Kingdom of Saints. A
rpodigious final struggle would
take place between the hosts of
Christ and the hosts of the
Antichrist through which history
would attain its fulfillment and
Before the Millenium could
dawn, however, misbelief had to
be eliminated as a prelude to ,
realizing the ideal of a wholly
Christian world. In the eyes of
the crusading Messianic hordes
(which began to form in the
Middle Ages), the smiting of the
Moslems and the Jews was to be
the first act in that final drama
which was to culminate in the
smiting of the Prince of Evil
(Satan, the Devil).
MUCH OF the present New
Right public discussion of issues
seems to be characterized by that
traditional scenario of political
conflict between "the children of
light" and the "children of dark-
ness." There is too much demon-
ology in the current discussion
which appears to consign politi-
cal candidates to being
demolished as "satanic" the
moral hit lists with "zero
ratings," "secular humanists
standing at the side of satan."
Reasoned, civil debate in an open
democracy requires another,
higher order of discourse.
One has a sense that New
Right advocates perceive
America as if it were a vast camp
revival meeting whose character-
istic method was to plunge imj
anguish the sinner over the stai
of his soul, then bring about I
confession of faith by oversimnj
fying the decision as a choice U
tween a clear good and an ol
vious evil. The Civil War wd
rendered all the more intrans
gent and destructive by each sid
claiming that God was on tht
side, and by portraying the othi
side as "infidel" and "atheist."
A mature America deserves
far more balanced and though
ful method to analyze its pro|,
lems and to formulate it
responses; anything less thai
that is an insult to the intelll
gence of the American people.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
SHEMOT The children of Israel increased and multiplied and
the land of Goshen was filled with them. But a new king arose in
Egypt; one who had not known Joseph. He said to his people:
"The children of Israel are too many and too mighty for us;
come, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it
came to pass that, when there befalleth us any war, they also
.join themselves unto our enemies, and fight against us, and get
them up out of the land*' (Exodus 1.9-101. The new Pharaoh
made slaves of the Hebrews. He also commanded that every
new-born male infant was to be cast into the river Nile. How-
ever, Moses was saved from this infanticide by the king's
daughter and grew up in Pharaoh's court. He was forced to flee
Egypt after slaying an Egyptian whom he found mistreating a
Hebrew slave. Moses went to Midian, where he tended sheep for
his father-in-law Jethro in the desert near Mount Horeb. God
nppt'ured to Moses in a burning bush and told him to return to
Egypt, for it was his mission to liberate the children of Israel
and lead them lo the land of Canaan. With the help of his
brother Aaron. Moses united the Hebrew slaves into a people.
Then he came before Pharaoh with God's demand that he "let
My people go. "

IE FAILURE of the Helms

pmittee is an important
ory for the forces of church-
separation. This is an
jn year, and the pressures
the newly-organized and
tically-active evangelical-con-
vatives are now carefully
ded in Congress. The "pro-

Nical-conservatives, which

to these positions by the

Gov. Reagan in the Presi-

Congress to pass the Helms

dicates that, despite all these
Bs.sures, the Congress was not
out to undercut the landmark

lie early 1960 s which declared

this route was taken to avoid this
Constitutional guarantee, every
other basic Constitutional safe-
guard was also fair game for any
group of the moment, which was
riding a crest of popular opinion
interested in sweeping away
opinions it opposed or sup-
pressing ideas the majority
might find objectionable.
These Constitutional
guarantees are not determined by
popularity contests or even
elections. They protect the
minorities which include Jews
the Equal Employment Oppor-
tunity Commission notwith-
standing and the unpopular, the
mainstream opinion as well as the
AS WE testified before the
Judiciary Subcommittee:
"The Helms amendment
permits rights guaranteed in the
Constitution, including the Bill
of Rights, to be changed by
statute. That cannot be accept-
able under our system of Consti-
tutuional government. The
Helms amendment is a shortcut
through the Constitution. It does
not honor it. It denigrates it.
"It is a dangerous precedent
which, if successful, would chart
the route and. indeed, invite new
infringements on our basic rights
by special interest groups and
champions of transient causes,
who are convinced that they have
heard or know the "Word of
God" and that the law must
make all Americans comply with
their version of what is right or
what conduct is proper.
"The preemption of the First
Amendment by statute was itself
unconstitutional and sub-
stantively bad policy."
Second, the Helms bill was
defeated on the basis of sub-
stantive considerations. Prayer
in the public schools, even if
"voluntary" (and there is much
doubt as to whether such exer-
cises can in fact ever be truly
voluntary), even if silent, is still
unconstitutional and should
remain that same way.
IN ITS testimony, ADL stated
its position clearly:
"We believe that the place
for prayer, as President Kennedy
said, is in the home and in the
church or synagogue not in the
public schools. It is not the
business of the government, state
or federal, to prescribe prayers or
encourage prayer in the public
schools. The essentials of church-
state separation require that
government not be permitted to
play such a role under our Con-
stitutional system. And it is not
only the prohibition on estab-
lishing a church, but the broader
application of the separation
doctrine which keeps the govern
ment from prescribing religious
doctrines or prayers preferring
one religion over another or any
form of religion over another or
any form of religion over non-
"The government in our
system, state or federal, is and
must remain neutral in matters

involving religion. And those
who seek to change that relation-
ship are neither "strict construc-
tion ists" nor faithful to the Con-
stitutional heritage handed down
to us by the founding fathers,
who specifically enshrined this
neutrality in the First Amend-
Justice Black'8 classic statement
of the separation doctrine on
behalf of the Court in Everaon
(330 U.S.I, 15-16):
"Neither a state nor the federal
government can set up a church.
Neither can pass laws which aid
one religion, aid all religions, or
prefer one religion over another.
Neither can force nor influence a
person to go to or remain away
from church against his will or
force him to profess a belief or
disbelief in any religion. No
person can be punished for enter-
taining or professing religious
beliefs or disbeliefs, for church
attendance or non-attendance.
No tax in any amount, large or
small, can be levied to support
any religious activities or insti-
tutions, whatever they may be
called, or whatever form they
may adopt to teach or practice
religion. Neither a state nor the
federal government can. openly
or secretly, participate in the
affairs of any religious organiza-
tions or groups and vice versa. In
the words of Jefferson, the clause
against establishment of religion
by law was intended to erect "a
wall of separation between
church and state."
It is this aspect of the issue
that President Carter overlooked
in his Sept. 2. 1980 statement (at
Independence, Mo.) that he
believes "... that there ought to
be a place and time in school for
voluntary prayer." The violation
lies not only in the prescription of
prayer by school authorities, but
the inherently involuntary aspect
of what is so loosely termed
"voluntary prayer."
THUS, school prayer is again
an issue and we have passed the
first test. The Helms forces lost
support because in their rectitude
they attacked the very basis of
the Constitution they as "strict
constructionists" were bound to
uphold. In their arrogant right-
eousness they took a path which
was itself, unconstitutional and
justified it by assertions
regarding the consequences of
the restoration of prayer in public
schools that were just not
In endorsing the position of the
Supreme Court in Engel, James
J. Kilpatrick, the noted con-
servative columnist in the
Washington Star, made the
following comment on the Helms
"Let us cling fiercely to our
First Amendment right freely to
exercise our religion but let us
not confuse the repetitious
mouthing of innocuous public
prayers, or a moment of purpose-
less silence, as an honest exercise
of religion. If we are to teach our
children to walk humbly in the
sight of God, we had better seek a
more effective means than token-
ism in the classroom."

WE ARE faced with a wave of
religious evangelism, bound up
with conservative politics, which
threatens to undermine the First
Amendment's basic guarantees
on such issues as school prayer.
It was to protect the people
against just such attacks that the
First Amendment was made a
part of the Constitution.
Moreover, as the Supreme
Court pointed out in Schempp, an
excusal procedure does not
render a prayer period "'volun-
tary." The societal pressures to
conform are substantial, and it is
unrealistic to expect that
children, who are the ultimate
conformists of our society, will
stand up and ask to be excused
from an officially sanctioned
period of prayer, however brief,,
however non-denominational,
however it is to be performed.
We are on notice. Although a
short "voluntary" prayer may
not seem to be an intolerable
breach, the warning of the

not the issue between the U.S.
and the PLO. Attempts to draw
the PLO into the negotiations
without agreement on the goals
of the (Camp David) process
undermines President (Anwar)
Sadat (of Egypt) as well as Prime
Minister (Menachem) Begin (of
Israel). We should not com-
promise what we have accom-
plished already through con-
cessions to the outspoken op-
ponents of Sadat's courageous
Question: "Is the Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty contrary to
U.S. interests because it leaves
out other parties to the conflict?"
Answer: "No. The Egyptian-
Israeli treaty does not bar other
states from joining the peace
process. The treaty of peace be-
tween the leading Arab state and
Israel is a deterrent to war. With-
out the treaty, neither U.S. in-
terests nor those of other can be

be stabilized by a settlement of
the Arab-Israeli conflict?"
Answer: "No. The 'link' be-
tween an Arab-Israeli settlement
and oil prices is tenuous. First,
not all members of OPEC (Or-
ganization of Petroleum Ex-
porting Countries) are Arab.
Second, oil prices are determined
more by supply and demand and
the value of the dollar than the
issue of who rules Jerusalem.'
Third, to speak of such a link is
dangerous, not only to the U.S.
but also to the leading Arab oil
producers. Fourth, it is illusory
to be considered a superpower if
foreign policies are distorted by
domestic needs. Linking oil needs
and prices to foreign policy only
invites more dictation by radical
or anti-American states. This is
not in our interests nor is it in the
interests of such states afc Saudi
Question: "Is recognition of
the PLO necessary to strengthen
U.S.-Saudi ties'" '
Answer. "No. Our apparent
differences with Saudi Arabia do
not 'rest solely with the Arab-
Israeli conflict. Several dif-
ferences are rooted in these
developments: 1. Our failure to
contest Soviet activity in Africa
and Asia; 2. the Soviet-Cuban
build-up in South Yemen; 3. our
inability to prevent the fall of the
Shah; 4. our mismanagement of
the dollar. Recognizing the PLO

But the former Premier was
widely criticized by convention
delegates for his failure to shake
hands with Peres or to mention
him much less congratulate
him in his speech. Peres, in
contrast, walked over to Rabin
and demonstratively shook his
hand before he began his speech.
While Peres' margin of victory
exceeded the expectations of his
supporters they would have

stantial success political
observers said his 70 percent
majority did not constitute a

insisting that the Rabin group
cannot claim representation in
precise proportion to the 28.8
percent of the vote garnered by
their man.
Rabin's speech was also well
received. It was mainly a
programatic review' of national
policy and national needs. He
dwelt on the merits of the Allon
plan, advanced by the late
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon as a
compromise settlement on the
West Bank.

On July 23, 1980. Saragovi
emerged from La Plata prison.
Although he was free, he knew
that he was a man with a record
which would dog hi* steps
through life. Reluctantly, he left
his native Argentina for a new
life in the United States, where he
will resume his university studies
after completing an intensive
course in English.
He came to my office, and we
talked about some of the rigors of
life in the three prisons in which
he had been. One of the most
difficult problems was long
periods of social isolation which
resulted from solitary confine-
ment and his having rebuffed
efforts by prisoners who were
urban guerrillas to involve him
in their organization.
months, he kept his sanity fey a
careful mental discipline which,
among other things, gave him
deeper spiritual insights. His
spiritual qualities, particularly
his tranquility and absence of
rancor, are impressive.
Saragovi plans to continue
studies, begun at age 16, leading
to a career in medicine, but he is
also thinking about training for
the rabbinate. Because his
religious upbringing is so im-
portant to him. he was par-
ticularly pained and perplexed by
the fact that the rabbi was not
permitted to visit him. although
he was permitted to visit some
other Jews in prison. Saragovi
also recalls that he was able to
get a Bible only after months of
repeated requests, and he now
wears glasses because of the eye-
strain from reading it in his cell,
