I'u B'Shevat begins on
Tuesday, Jan. 20. The holiday
has its roots in Biblical times and
is Hebrew for the 15th day of the
month of Shevat. In Biblical
times, this was the last day for
paying the tax due to the Temple
in Jerusalem on all crops
produced on the farm. After that
date, it was forbidden to eat any
produce on which the tax had not
been paid.
Another name for this holiday
is Rosh Hashanah La'Ilanot,

New Year for the Trees. Since the
Hebrew month of Shevat is the
beginning Spring in Israel, when
everything starts to bloom, we
celebrate that the trees are all a
year older.
IN ancient Israel, there was
a custom of planting a tree on Tu
B'Shevat whenever a child was
born: a cedar tree for a boy and a
cypress tree for a girl. When the
children grew up and married, the
chupah (marriage canopy) was
constructed from the branches of
their trees.
Today, Tu B'Shevat is
celebrated as an official holiday
in Israel, with school-sponsored
tree planting throughout the
land. Arranged in cooperation

In Jerusalem
Hamad Abu Kabiya. a member of
Israel's Knesset and representing
the country's 42.000 Bedouin
citizens, was gunned down
Monday night as he sat in his car
outside a Jerusalem hotel.
Abu Kabiya was known
throughout Israel as the man in
the traditional white flowing
Arab headdress, which made his
appearance on the floor of the
Knesset so unique.
ABU KABIYA s murder was
the first of a Knesset member in
Israel's history. He was a mem-
ber of the Opposition Labor
Party led by Shimon Peres, who
is currently challenging Prime
Minister Menachem Begin for his
job. He was one of six Arab
Police have already ruled out
that the murder was a terrorist
attack. Speculation is rife that he
had been killed by Bedouins who.
according to Israel Radio, "were
displeased by a real estate deal
that he helped to bring about."
Abu Kabiya gained renown for
organizing protests against land
acquisition policies in the desert
by the Israel government.
BUT ISRAEL Radio also
reported that Abu Rabiya had
been engaged in a feud with
Sheikh Jabr Moadi. of the Druze
minority, over the seat that Abu
Kabiya held.
Israel Radio said that Moadi
was "deeply sorrowful" after a
court ruled against his claim on
the seat, but Moadi insists that
subsequently he and Abu Rabiya
had made peace.

Officials at the (enter.

Angeles (YULA),
estimated that the van-

midnight and 5 a.m. on the
morning of Jan. 7.
The outside walls of the

daubed with slogans which read.

Murderer." "National Socialist

"Jews Beware, the SS is
Coming." and "Kill Jews."
sent a message to the Center
saying; "I am shocked at the
vandalism and the defacement.
The actions are an outrage to
Americans. "
Mayor Tom Bradley reacted
with anger when he learned about
the vandalism, he delared that
"the city of Los Angeles is proud
of its multi-racial, multi-cultural
population, and we do not accept
the ugly and shameful attempts
of the few sick vandals to fright-
en, threaten or goad us into the
pit with them."
Gov. Edmund Brown Jr.
reacted similarly to the incident.
At the same time there was a
flood of telephone calls to the
Center from Christian clerics
throughout Los Angeles offering
their help in cleaning the walls.
TWO CANS of spray paint
were found outside the building
by students as they prepared tc
attend classes. Police are seeking
the whereabout of two young
men who participated in a bizarre
connected with the vandalism.
Newsman's Egypt Article*
Bar Paper From Stands
Series of articles dealing with
internal political developments in
Egypt is believed to be the reason
why the Egyptian government
issued orders barring the author,
Jerusalem Post Middle East
affairs editor Anan Safadi, from
returning to Egypt.
Safadi, who spent six days in
Cairo last week, began the series
with an article referring to
reports of a power struggle
between Vice President Hosni
Mubarak and close associates of
President Anwar Sadat.
THE STORY appeared jointly
in the English-language Post and
the Hebrew daily, Al Hamish-
mar The Egyptian authorities
denounced it as "false reports
and lies." Safadi told reporters
here that he stood by his account
and that it was based on in-
formation from reliable sources.
He expressed "surprise" at the
ban. noting that the paper had
good relations with the Egyptian
authorities throughout the peace
It was not clear whether the
ban was against Safadi or all
Post correspondents or whether
it would affect the sale of the
Po$t on Cairo newsstands.
Several hundred copies of the
newspaper are sold daily in
Bgjrpt. The sale of the Post was
in fact the first commercial deal
transacted between an Israeli and
an Egyptian company.

-enes posed the question. What

Egyptian authorities had the
right to rebut or refute the Pott
story and even to brand it false,
but there was a vast difference
between such a reaction and tht
decision to bar correspondents
from the country.
It is expected here that Israel's
Ambassador in Cairo, Eliahu
Ben-Elissar. will eventually
succeed in having the ban lifted.

Surprises in Store
The decision to advance the elections in Israel
from November to an earlier date has had surprising
effect in the general press. It does seem as if Prime
Minister Begin is a bone in everybody's throat and
that no one can wait for his descent from power.
This suggests that what is expected is a
radically different approach to Begin's conducting of
the currently stalled peace negotiations with Egypt,
which everybody and his brother blames on the be-
leaguered Prime Minister.
We would like to remind those who can't wait for
Mr. Begin to leave that the Labor Party was from the
beginning unalterably opposed to the unconditional
ceding of the Sinai to Egypt which Mr. Begin was
responsible for doing.
Neither Prime Minister Begin nor Israel ever
receives even an iota of congratulation for this
gesture. What, in effect, is anticipated are more con-
cessions from Jerusalem once Mr. Begin goes. More
and more and more. There may well be surprises in
store for those with such expectations so that, by
contrast, in the end Mr. Begin may not seem that
"intransigent" at all.
Let there be no mistake. A change in power, let
us say the assumption to the premiership by the
Labor Party's Shimon Peres, will not mean a
radically different view toward the negotiations.

Predictable Record at UNations
General Assembly Ends Session As It Began: Unnoticed
The 36th session of the UN
Cieneral Assembly ended here
last month almost the way it
began: unnoticed, if not ignored
While the rest of the world was
focusing attention on the grow-
ing upheavals within and ex-
ternal conflicts between Mideast
countries, especially the continu-
ing war between Iran and Iraq.
the growing tension between
Israel's long-time contention,
that the Arab-Israeli conflict is
not the sole reason for instability
in the Mideast, was dramatically
underscored by the Persian Gulf
war and the massing of Syrian
troops on Jordan's border. The
world realized that a solution to
the Palestinian problem would
not guarantee the Western world
the flow of Arab oil.
however, was oblivious to the real
happenings in the Mideast and
Ionian and Syria and the holding continued with its yearly ritual of
Ol American hostages by
Teheran, the UN was conducting
business as usual: condemning
Israel, debasing it and reviling
the Jewish State.
passing anti Israeli resolutions,
instead of concentrating on how
to end the Soviet occupation of
Afghanistan or how to end the
bloodshed between Iran and Iraq.
The Assembly which officially
opened Sept. 21, seemed at the
beginning to bode ill for Israel.
The Arabs, encouraged by the
Security Council resolution on
Jerusalem, which resulted in the
transfer of all 13 foreign em-
bassies to Tel Aviv, and the
special emergency session of the
Assembly earlier, which called for
total Israeli withdrawal from the
"occupied teritories," were
planning to force the suspension
of Israel from the 35th session of
the Assembly.
The Arabs were also de-
termined to do all in their power
to have the UN impose sanctions
on the Jewish State, instead of
merely passing vicious anti-
Israeli resolutions. But the turn
of events in the Mideast proved
that the Arabs and their allies,
despite their overwhelming
majority, do not operate in a
vacuum and cannot, therefore,
manipulate the international
community at all times.
ACCORDING TO diplomats
here, the Arab offensive against
Israel did not succeed during the
last Assembly, due mainly to
three factors: The Persian Gulf
war between two Moslem
countries, both outspoken
supporters of the Palestine
Liberation Organization; the
armed stand-off between Syria
and Jordan: and the Presidential
election in the United States.

a part ol their continuing discussion on Israeli politics and
history CBS News persuaded Amos Elon to narrate a film
which could transfer some of the insights of his controversial
book to this visual medium. The result is a very loose collage of
images which captures a good dial of the color, noise, ebullience
and intensity of Israeli life. The narrative line, low-key and
straightlorward. emphasizes the complicated personalities of
11* Israeli people and the vivid contrasts and paradoxes in the
texture of their present and past life. Far from being a propa
gunda piece, it is an honest, humanly concerned and therefore
inconclusive film convincing at the price of not being overly
dramatic. I-or more information about attending the showing of
this fascinating film, contact the USF Hillel office.

'Der Spiegel9 Reports Begin 's
Rule of Israel Pains Schmidt
HAMBURG (ZINS) The West Germany
weekly, Der Spiegel, has published excerpts from a secret
document of the West German Foreign Ministry which
contain many remarks by Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
about Israel and its Prime Minister.
According to this report, Chancellor Schmidt is
quoted as having said, "It pains me to see how a single
individual, Menachem Begin, can lead a whole country
into bankruptcy and bring his people to disaster, a people
which for the first time in its new history has its own
state. And in a more crucial sense, Israel's Prime Minister
can even bring us to a new world war."
The weekly also recalls Schmidt's statements that
Germany, through its murders, is responsible for the
establishment of the Jewish State of Israel, and that the
West German government is also responsible for the fact
that the Palestinians are suffering so much.

greatest damage which
the Carter adminis-
tration did to Israel was not
so much in terms of the
concessions Israel had to
make, but rather the effort
to weaken Israel's public
image in the United
States,*' said Morris J.
Amitay, who in November
wound up six years as the
executive director of the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee.
"Israel has further lost the
image of the courageous under-
dog," he said during a wide-rang-
ing interview, his first since
leaving the officially registered
pro-Israel lohbying organization
on Capitol Hill.
"I don't think it was an active
strategy on the part of everyone
in the Carter administration to
paint Israel in the worst light,
but there were times when certain
elements in the State Depart-
ment and in the White House
in order to pressure Israel to get
what they wanted would point
to the fact that Israel's status in
the United States had deterior-
ated at the same time they were
working to achieve that." he
AMITAY. who left AIPAC to
open his own consulting business
in Washington, did not spare any
words in naming names. A good
deal of Israel's problems, he said,
originated with the outgoing Na-
tional Security Adviser. I)r
Zbigniew 111 /e/.nrski.
"There is no doubt that
Br/e/.inski would often point out
that Israel was losing its support
in the Congress." Amitay said,
noting that Brzezinski wus fol-
lowing Henry Kissinger's
11 enry Kissinger, who used to
analyze the situation faced by the
Israelis, would paint a very
pessimistic picture Hut

went a step further.
He charged that Brzezinski
hud pushed for a confrontation
with the American Jewish
community during the admini-
stration's 1978 packatre sale"
of F-15 fighters to Saudi Arabia
"when with a little bit of good
faith the administration could

Zbigniew Brzetinski
have achieved through negotia-
tion with the Congress most of
the package that they wanted to
get through."
"HE WANTED to cripple the
pro-Israel forces.' Amitay said.
"There's no doubt in my mind
that the comment attributed to
him that we'll break the ass of
Ml'AC" was a correct quote.
Those were the exact quotes
I hey were repeated to me the day
that he made them by someone
who is still not in a position to
verify them because he Is an
SCtive media person."
Amitay went on: "Knowing
Hr/e/inski in terms ol his defen
siveness. his character, the way
he operates and what he was
trj big to achieve oil the F 15 sale.
! here s no doubt in my mind that
he. in fact, saw that as one of his
objectives. Once that was done. I
think he felt that the administra-
ion would have an easier time in
persuading Israel what the
United States was doing was in
I- reel's interest."
But in summing up his six
v.ars at AIPAC, Amitay pointed
oul that top officials like Br/.c/in-
ski and Kissinger always have
ready allies at the State Depart-
ment prepared to pressure Israel.
He spoke of "the general anti-
Israel biM in the State Depart-
ment .. as they look at the
wealth, power and numbers of the

The merchants of glamorous
cameras, in a last desperate
measure to hold the fort, are
trying to counter the trend with
mini-schools and courses of
instruction to make the typical
photo fan feel that his optic
obsession has not been a lost
cause, to give him the impression
that, overnight, he can become a
Steichen or a Weston.
BUT STEREO and TV elec
tronic games offer to teach you
nothing. To bother you with no
threats of enlightenment that
might require individual response
or individual effort. In fact,
stereo advertises ever louder
decibel levels, a secret promise to
drown out the outside world with
glorious wattage produced by
equipment that looks just as
"professional" as any Leica or
Hasselblad ever did. Even more
All you have to do is press a
few buttons and sit back as you
watch dials, meters and flashing
lights. Even the music is beside
the point. Given this womb, the
purveyors of cameras have had it.
Nor is this latest mass anaes-
thesia confined to the home.
What self-res| ecting car doesn't
sport a stereo capable of deafen-
ing the best of us? And in the
streets these days, you can
always carry, blasting at 100 db.,
the most exotic-looking radios
rigged out with casette-players to
achieve the same hallucinogenic
Blacks in particular are at-
tracted to this latter form of
"entertainment." They have
more agony to be blocked out of
their lives than most other
Americans, and that is why they
are the greatest purchasers of
such gear and the greatest
offenders on the street as they go
by, rocking and rolling.
MEANWHILE, back in the
house, when the do-nothingism of
stereo becomes frankly boring,
there is always the TVcorder to
watch, which has been taping one
program or another while you
have been making yourself deaf
worshipping at the dials of your
stereo rig. And there is always
the buffoonish electronic TV
game to invite your participation
in cretin-like performance when
the tapes become even more
boring than the hi-fi ever did.
The most affluent among us
may increasingly bemoan the
theft of their five-figure care and
dashboard stereos replete with
outrigger equalizer-amplifier and
sophisticated rearwindow
speakers. And, oh yes, the Nikon
in the glove compartment.
But for us homefolks, for
whom a Tercel does not a castle
make, good citizens bent on
saving energy, the stereo's the
thing. It is the source of our tran-
quilized spirit soothed by sound
against the warring world out-
side. The newspaper ads tell the

been considerable concern
recently about turning back the
clock on tolerance of cultural and
racial diversity. Some people are
even fearful that one group or
another may write into law
certain religious or moral
standards. Despite this percep-
tion, however, many voters are
more, not less, open in their po-
litical preferences.
One of the most significant and
continuous changes to occur in
Congress since I came to
Washington in 1972 is both the
increase of Jewish members of
Congress and their wider geo-
graphic distribution. In the 93rd
Congress, there were ten Jewish
members in Congress, and, with
the exception of Sid Yates of
Chicago, all came from metro-
politan New York and the ad-
jacent northeastern seaboard
Florida in 1972, I believe,
perhaps signaled the beginning of
a real change. The following
years brought Elliott Levitas
from Georgia in 1974, Dan Glick-
man from Kansas in 1976, and in
1978, Martin Frost from Texas.
These new members, unlike the
previous Jewish membership, are
from districts with very few
Jewish residents Glickman's
East Kansas district has less
than one-half of one percent, and
Frost ol Dallas has less than 2
This year, seven new Jewish
members w ill serve in the House,
so that a record total of 27 Jewish
Representatives will serve in the

not at all certain that Hurvitz
had, in fact, taken the rest of his
faction with him.
Monday, it appeared likely
that Prime Minister Begin, who
presumably lost his slender
ruling majority, would announce
new elections for June.
BUT THEN Deputy Premier
Yigael Yadin suggested that his
Democratic Movement Party
would also walk out of the
coalition if early elections weren't
held Members of the Ahva
faction, who have split off from
Yadin's Democratic Movement,
however showed no signs by mid-
week that they would walk out

This does not suggest that
Begin had beat the crisis in con

inspire him at least for the

EARLIER, in announcing the
latest crisis, Begin told newsmen
that "the (Cabinet) discussion
made clear there is a tendency
among the majority of the
ministers to hold precipitate elec-
tions," and he explained that
"the decision will be taken during
the weak" after he has had time
to discuss the matter with
"friends and colleagues."
He said of the crisis: "I'm not
disappointed at all. This is
democracy. It happens. In a
coalition government, if one of
the partners leaves it, a new
situation is created. There is no
reason to be disappointed."

MacGuignan, Canada's Secre-

recommended to the government
several measures to pursue
Soviet compliance with human

the Helsinki review conference in

in the context of the dramatic

that "Canada regards Soviet

The Canadian minister has
recommended a post-Madrid con-
tinuing review of human rights
violations by an internationally
