THAT characterization was
attributed by Dyess to Secretary

his confirmation hearings by the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee. The Foreign Ministry
spokesman stressed that in
Israel's view, the PLO is an
extremist terrorist organization

Aliza Kashi*s rise to stardom
began here in the 70's, after she
had already established herself in
South America where she cap-
tivated and conquered the enter-
tainment capitals. It was there
that she picked up the basics of
Spanish and Portuguese and
began incorporating those
languages, as well as English,
Hebrew, French and Italian into
her act. In Brazil she was the
rage of her own television show,
and on her final Latin-American
stop, Mexico City, she became
the darling of the supper club
In the United States, Aliza
immediately established herself,
when, on her first Merv Griffin
appearance, face to face with a
live New York audience she froze,
and desperately casting out for
an opener, blurted, "Hello
Poples." The phrase, obviously
spontaneous, and delivered in
Aliza's inimitable accent, im-
mediately and thoroughly won
over the audience at home as
well as in the studio.
Perhaps her second biggest
break came via a secondary
discovery by Jack Benny. Jack
had been introduced to her at the
Plaza Hotel and invited Aliza to
come up to his suite to meet his
longtime producer, Irving Fein.
Alua Kashi
When she arrived the next day
for what promised to be a very
casual cocktail party meeting,
Benny awakened from a nap, and
strolled into the living room
wearing a robe. Startled, Aliza
cried, 'Such a big star as your
are, and this is the way you greet
me!" Benny went into gales of
laughter, and during the meeting,
broke up time after time.
He had now been completely
won by her comedy style, and
then through a simple, one-song
audition, found Aliza a talented
singer as well. Then and there,
completely out of the blue, Benny
invited Aliza to play Omaha and
Chicago with him, and later, at
Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
She is a darling of the TV talk
shows. Aliza has co-hosted the
Mike Douglas Show and appear-
ed on the Merv Griffin Show 179
times (a record). She has also
recorded three long-playing
albums. In addition. Miss Kashi
demonstrated her musical
comedy prowess co-starring with
Gordon MacRae in a tour of the
Broadway hit "Golden Rain-
Alex Sasha Tormas
The rare combination of dyna-
mic personality, international
charm and elegance together with
a most gifted taien are but a few
of the reasons the wonderful
name of Alex Sasha Tormas and
his violin was so greatly ac-
claimed throughout Europe and
still enjoys the same continued
success in the United States and
Sasha at one moment will per-
form as a violinist with a sense of
humor, bright, saucy and cap-
tivating and the next moment
under such light ripplings, will
well up a strong current in Tchai-
kovsky, Brahms, Chopin and
other such great master works.
Sasha Tormas is the only
known violinist who has spec-
tacularly bridged the gap be-
tween the great master works,
the popular music and the pro-
gressive jazz. He is credited with
an impressive list of musical tri-
umphs in Vienna, Naples, Paris,
London am' Athens.

Chinese Gruman Theatre in
Hollywood, has the name of

Haig's Testimony Revealed
Sen. Carl Levin (D.,
Mich.) has disclosed to the
Senate his 36 questions to
Secretary of State Alex-
ander Haig and Haig's re-
sponse to them. Virtually
the entire text of more than
6,000 words is taken up
with Arab-Israeli affairs,
the Persian Gulf and re-
lations with the Soviet
Levin, who opposed Haig's
confirmation, made his disclosure
in an address to the Senate dur-
ing the debate on Haig's con-
firmation as Secretary. Haig was
confirmed by a vote of 93-6. In
opposing Haig, Levin concen-
trated on his record in the White
House during the Nixon Ad-
ministration. The Senator is a
member of the Senate Armed
Services Committee which he
represented on a recent visit to
the Middle East and submitted a
report to President Reagan.
FOLLOWING is an abridged
summary of some of Levin's
questions and Haig's answers, in
order of their presentation:
Q. Do you agree with President
Carter's view that it is in the vital
interests of the U.S. to maintain
the security of the Persian Gulf?
A: The importance of the region
obviously includes its oil
resources. Beyond oil, however,

Filling in Background
Air Force Responds to Shelling
Engagement Announced
rael Air Force planes bombed
four terrorist targets in south
Lebanon last week in response to
the overnight shelling by Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
units of the northern Israeli
towns of Kiryat Shemona and
Metullah. All Israeli planes
returned safely, a military
spokesman announced. The
pilots' reports indicated accurate
The four targets were bases
and facilities operated by El
Fatah and the Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine, two
components of the PLO. One of
them was in the Nabatiya area
and, according to the Army
Radio, it was the source of the
firing at Kiryat Shemona. The
other targets were in the vicin-
ities of the seaside cities of Sidon
and Tyre and of the Zharani
River estuary. These areas are in
the full control of the PLO.
adults were injured in Kiryat
Shemona, most of them only
slightly. Some electric power
lines were knocked down in
Metullah and other damage was
done but there were no injuries.
An army spokesman said Israeli
artillery opened fire on the source
of the rocket attacks.
The attacks followed a heavy
artillery exchange between
Palestinian terrorists in south
Lebanon and Maj. Saad Had
dads Christian forces. That duel
was apparently triggered by the
opening of a new short wave
radio station by Haddad called
"Voice of Free Lebanon." It is
financed by the High Enterprise
Christian Foundation, an Amer-
ican evangelical group based on
the U.S. West Coast. Haddad in-
augurated the station with a
threat to wipe out the terrorist-
held Lebanese coastal towns of
Sidon and Tyre if Palestinian
forces continue to attack his men.
Deputy Defense Minister Mor-
dechai Zipori told the Army
Radio that the bombing was in
direct response to the 'brutal and
indiscriminate shelling of civilian
targets in Kiryat Shemona.''
HE SAID Israel's policy of
initiating attacks on terrorist
bases would continue but such
brutal shelling could not be
allowed to pass without an im-
mediate response even though
the initiative in this episode had
been the PLO's.
Zipori cited President
Reagan's statement that
terrorism must be forcefully

In a letter to President Rea-
gan. Lehman and Fish call for full

ment's Office of Special Investi-
gations, which is responsible for
the investigation and prosecution

the Justice Department Budget,
is required to continue the Office
of Special Investigations, which
was established in the Criminal
Division of the Department of
Justice in 1979. "This amount
has been consistently and un-
animously authorized and ap-
propriated by the Congress in the
past." the letter states.
"The actions of the Attorney

countered. He said Israel would
use every means at its disposal to
hit the PLO. "We don't have
arms to lie unused in our ar-
senals." Zipori said.
Israel last bombed south
Lebanon targets a month ago. On
that occasion a dogfight de-
veloped with Syrian MIGs. This
time the skies were clear except
for ineffective anti-aircraft fire
from PLO batteries.

Big Heist Cleans Out
Tel Aviv Museum Valuables
TEL AVIV (JTA) Jewelry and religious and
artistic objects with a nominal value of between $3 million
to $5 million, but with a historical value worth far more,
were stolen from the Haaretz Museum's Ethnography and
Folklore Pavillion. Police were rounding up known
receivers of stolen jewelry and keeping a close watch on
airports, but they fear that the objects may already have
been broken down for smuggling abroad.
The thieves apparently knew that the museum
building had security devices only at its front door. They
broke in through a rear window and cleared out the entire
building, stripping models of their jewelry. The items'
stolen included silver phylacteries given to Theodor
Herzl's son on his Bar Mitzvah, and a Bible donated by
Tel Aviv's first mayor, Meir Dizengoff. Also stolen were
rare Bibles, spice boxes and kiddush cups.

A Provocative Document
That Needs Careful Study
The 119-page study by the World Jewish Con-
gress which was made public at the recent assembly
of the WJC in Jerusalem deserves careful attention
by those who are concerned with Israel-diaspora re-
lations. The tendency by some to hasty attacks
should be avoided.
There is no question that the report, two years
in the making, is controversial. The report was not
formally presented to the WJC gathering nor was it
endorsed in a resolution. WJC President Edgar
Bronfman stressed that the WJC "is neither respon-
sible for nor committed to accept or support any of
This is a correct position. Some of the "con-
cerns" expressed, such as over the control of the
Orthodox rabbinate, Israel's settlement policies in
the West Bank and Gaza, and its electoral system
will find people on both sides of the argument in the
diaspora as in Israel.
Bronfman's collective statement "We do
believe, however, that this thoughtful, sensitive and
significant report warrants the serious consideration
of concerned Jews everywhere" should be listened
to. The 33 member International Commission ,
chaired by Guy de Rothschild of Paris which pre-
pared this report is made up of some of the most
prominent, thoughtful and concerned Jews in the
diaspora and in Israel.
Their warning that criticism of Israel's policies
by Jews in the United States and elsewhere should
not be "swept under the rug," but must be openly
expressed to relieve "increasing strains" in Israeli-
diaspora relations, must be heeded.
In recent years, there has been much more effort
both in Israel and the diaspora to improve relations
in order to create a real partnership between the
Jewish people and the Jewish State. The WJC study,
while certainly open to criticism, could provide a
catalyst for needed thought and discussion.
Our Former Hostages
After all the divisiveness and polarization that
seemed to emerge during the recent national election
campaigns, in part fueled by the unfortunate com-
bustion of fundamentalist religion and politics, the
American response to the hostage tragedy discloses
that our national solidarity as a people is greater
than the tendency toward fragmentation.
Americans supported the hostages as fellow
citizens who command our support and respect, and
no one made distinctions as to whether they were
Christians or Jews, black or white, men or women.
They were Americans all.
That unity and solidarity must be preserved in
the coming months as we seek new beginnings with
the Reagan Administration to face the hard chal-
lenges ahead of us all in the 1980s.
Militant Settlers Return Home
About 200 militant settlers who
seized a hill top north of Jerusa-
lem have returned to their homes
apparently satisfied that their
action had spurred the govern
ment to speed up its plans to
build a new town on the West
3ank site. Representatives of the
Ttnip and of the settlers regional
>uncil met with Premier
Menachem Begin.
He promised them that build-
ing would commence in three
months. The plans for the new
town, known as Givon, have been
submitted to the Military
Government's zoning committee.
Pinhas Wallerstein, chairman of
the regional council, said working
procedures have already been
agreed on with the government.
On Giving Hitler Respectability
Associate Editor
IT WOULD be an exag
geration, I admit, to say that
CBS Television is carrying on a
war against the Jews. On the
other hand, a good case can be
made in support of the thesis.
On the heels of the tempest in
the Vanessa Redgrave teapot
comes -the most recent CBS
assault in the form of the pro-
duction the other night called
"Bunker," a dramatization of the
final weeks of the life of Adolf
Hitler and his Third Reich.
NOT EVEN so distinguished
an actor as Anthony Hopkins,
whose role as Pierre Bezhuchov
in Leo Tolstoy's "War and
Peace" is one of the immortal
achievements of television
theater production, could have
pulled this putrescent soap opera
from the gas chamber of its own
To examine the production in
all critical seriousness is to give
"Bunker" the historic and artis-
tic justice it does not deserve
and that in turn it gives neither
to accuracy nor to the Jews
But it is important to under-
stand that "Bunker" invests in
Hitler. Bormann, Goebbels,
Goering, Speer and Co. the kind
of historical credibility that they
did not have in life, that in retro-
spect they do not deserve and
that, from the days of Nuremberg
onward, we hoped internationally
to deny them.

How Racism Paralyzes Life in Boston
A year has gone by since
Boston, bleeding from racist stab
wounds, looked deep into its sick
civic psyche ana applied to those
wounds a tourniquet known as
"A Covenant for Racial Peace."
Thousands of decent citizens
signed the covenant and affixed
to their garments a symbolic pin
showing an olive branch with
leaves in colors of the various
In the next 12 months, friction
be ween blacks and whites inten-
sified, incidents of interracial vio-
lence were frequent, and the olive
branch began to wither. A badly-
divided School Committee's
reactionary majority fired the
Superintendent, Dr. Robert
Wood, who had taken on that
thankless job after a brilliant
career at MIT and as president of
the University of Massachusetts.
Boston's racial woes spilled over
on to front pages of newspapers
in cities with better records for
racial harmony.
RECENTLY, the disease came
to fever pitch at Harvard across
the river in Cambridge when
Lydia P. Jackson, president of
the Black Students Association,
after receiving a series of obscene
phone calls threatening rape, got
a "Ten days to kill" message

Boston Committee.
Jones, who is black and a
former vice dean of the Universi-

To Live With Pride

bution Committee which receives
\its funding partly through the
Federation / UJA Campaigns.

Appeal Campaign now in
ACRE, ISRAEL Jacques is
82 and his health is failing. His
legs are weak and he can no
longer stand without assistance.
Sometimes he lacks the strength
to move his wheelchair by
himself. But Jacques' mind is
still sharp and with a little en-
couragement he is happy to tell
stories about the "old days."
Jacques came to Israel in 1952,
u refugee from Tunisia, bringing
his wife, two teen-age sons and a
grown daughter. His only
possessions were a sack of cloth-
ing and a few books. At age 54,
Jacques was starting over again.
He loves to talk about those
days, about how he and his
family lived in a tent on the out-
skirts of Haifa, and his years of
hard work to make a new life. He
can talk for hours about the small
house he finally bought on a
moshav near Natanya and the
decent life he was able to help
build working together with his
"We never had much," he
says, "but we had enough and we
had pride."
His pride in his home, country
and in his sons who served in the
army is obvious, and Jacques is
still a proud man. To maintain
that pride, despite the fact that
age and illness have left his body
weak and dependent upon others,
is very important to him.
Jacques is a resident of the
Acre Regional Home for the
Aged, part of a new and growing
concept in care for the elderly in
Israel. Opened in March 1979, the
140 bed home is the first in a
series of new facilities developed
by ESHEL, the Association for
the Planning and Development of
Services for the Aged in Israel,
and organization founded by the
American Jewish Joint Distri-
bution Committee and supported
in part by .IDC-Israel through
funds raised in the
UJA Federation campaign.
The first thing that strikes a
visitor to the Acre Home is the
location. The facility is on the
beach and a special paved path
provides access to a stunning
view of the Mediterranean to
even those in wheelchairs.
Directly across the street is a
large, noisy elementary school.
"The home was placed here
intentionally," says Moshe Dob-
znnski, the Director. "It's im-
portant that the elderly remain
involved with the community.
e use the young people as
volunteers in recreation and other
programs. The sound of children
playing in the schoolyard and the
"-ight of young people in our
building is good for the morale of
'lie residents."
Community involvement ex-
lends beyond the school children.
^ '"lunteers and visitors come to
i he facility from every part of the
region. They take the residents
| for walks, play chess and
checkers, or come simply to sit
I and talk.
"I believe it is even more
I important for the community
that they are involved than it is
for those who live here," Director
iDobzimski continues. "We
rappreciate the volunteers. But
the fact is that the young people

are getting the best of the
bargain. Where else could they be
exposed to so much experience,
to so many years of living all in
one place. The residents have a
lot of spirit."
The physical structure itself
seems to be designed with the
spirit of the patients as a prime
consideration. The corridors and
the rooms are bright, painted in
cheerful, non-Institutional colors.
Huge windows allow sunlight
and fresh sea breezes to fill the
rooms. Recreation, activity and
other areas for common use are
spaced all around the facility.
Each cluster of sleeping rooms
has its own dining hall. The
patients live two to a room, and
are carefully matched so that
those who share living space also
share a common culture and
language. The bedrooms are large
and the residents are encouraged
to personalize them with their
own decor. Many have re-
frigerators and other small
The home is also equipped with
a synagogue, a barber shop, a
library and a subsidized store
that offers food and cosmetic
items at prices well below retail.
The demand for services in the
area far exceeds the available
facilities. Although the Acre
home handles only the elderly
from local communities, there is a
wait of more than a year for
admittance. To ease the strain,
the home has added an out-
patient clinic and health program
that includes examinations and
home visits by traveling nurses.
Most of those who eventually
become residents have their first
contact through the outpatient
services. To gain admittance, a
prospective resident must be
screened by a committee. Need
and local residency are the only
requirements. Residents pay only
what they can afford.
The Acre Regional Home for
the Aged is the first of many. In
the summer of 1980, a similar
home was opened in Safed and
another is under construction in
Ciillo* near Jerusalem. ESHEL is
also helping to develop com-
munity services for the aged to

An editorial which appeared in

Telegraph might interest you. It
was written by William Aiken.
Mr. Aiken is not a Jew, even as
the Gazette-Telegraph is not a
Jewish house organ or journal. It
was Mr. Aiken's comment on the
slogan which appeared during the
recent flurry on Nazi scrawlings
on synagogues and other public
buildings. It was titled,
"Reflection on the Revival of a
Slogan." Here it is!
"Jews go home" Well now,
this is nothing new. Never in the
past have you ever taken this
gentle suggestion to move on.
But Heaven forbid, suppose just
this one time, you thought that
an expression of a few sick people
actually expressed the conviction
of all the people in this wonderful
land of ours and all of you started
to pack your bags and leave for
parts unknown.
Just before you leave, would
you do me a favor? Would you
leave your formula for the Salk
vaccine with me? You wouldn't
be so heartless as to let my
children contract polio?
And would you please leave
vour knack for government and
politics, and persuasion and
literature and good food, and fun
and love and all those things, and
would you please leave me the
secret of your drive to succeed?
And please, have pity on us.
Please show us the secret of how
to develop such geniuses as
Einstein and Stenmetz and oh, so
many others, who have helped us
all. After all, we owe you most of
the A-bomb, most of our rocket
research and perhaps the fact
that we are alive today, instead of
looking up from our chains and
from our graves to see an aging,
happy Hitler drive slowly by in
one of our Cadillacs.
On your way out, Jews, will
you do me just one more favor?
Will you drive by my house and
pick me up too? I m just not sure
I could live too well in a land
where you weren't around to give
as much as you have given us. If
you ever have to leave, love goes
with you, democracy goes with
you, everything I and all my
buddies fought for in the World
War II goes with you. God goes
with you. Just pull up in front of
my house, slow down and honk,
because so help me, I'm going
with you, too.

nificance and we have long
standing and close relations with
a number of states in the area
potential threats which we
must counter are the further
spread of Soviet power and in-
fluence. .
Q: Do you think we presently
have the military capabilities to
defend the Persian Gulf, by force
if necessary .?
A: We cannot hope to pro-
tect U.S. interests with a strat-
egy that is exclusively military,
nor do we expect to have to rely
solely on our forces in responding
to external aggression There
is no question that our overall
military capabilities for respond-
ing to Persian Gulf contingencies
need strengthening, and we will
do so. It is also true i that our
present power is not to be trifled
with. Our force deployments are
backed uu b v access to important
military and naval facilities in the
general region .
Q: Saudi Arabia has requester
additional offensive equipment
for the F 15 aircraft (60 sold in
1978) President Reagan
pledged his Administration "will
not continue to ship massive
quantities of sophisticated arma
ments to so-called 'moderate
Arab states who, in fact, migh
directly threaten Israel's exis-
tence" .... Would you support
the sale of the equipment the
Saudis are seeking?
A: This is a serious issue which
this Administration must ex-
amine carefully .... But I will
assure you that my recommenda-
tion will take into consideration
our concerns for Saudi Arabia's
security, our commitment to
Israel's security, and the regional
arms balance.
Q: (Soviet Jewish emigration)
has dropped drastically in the
past year and half .... You
linked the drop to the Soviet in-
vasion of Afghanistan. Other ob-
servers have pointed to
figures showing that the trend
was well established before the
Soviet military action even
began. They believe that Ameri-
can lack of reaction to the
Soviets' sharply increased emi-
gration after the implementation
of the Jackson-Vanik amendment
caused the Soviets to abandon
their efforts to work within the
framework of this Congressional
A: It is true that a decline in
Jewish emigration had begun in
the autumn of 1979, before the
invasion of Afghanistan. This
decline intensified, however,
following the Soviet invasion,
producing a 1980 Jewish emigra-
tion total of just over 20,000 per-
sons compared to a 1979 total of
over 50,000 persons .... We can
see both the drastic cut in Jewish
emigration and the invasion of
Afghanistan as reflections in
their different ways, of the same
hardened Soviet stance towards
U.S. interests. To link the
sudden decline in Jewish emigra-
tion to a Soviet perception of lack
of movement in MFN (most
favored nation treatment) alone
would be to ignore other signifi-
cant factors operating in U.S.-
Soviet relations at the time.
Q. Would you be willing to
continue to work within the para-
meters of the Jackson-Vanik
A: ... I certainly operate with-
in its parameters. Should the
Soviet record on emigration im-
prove substantially at some
future point, any recommen-
dation I might make to the Presi-
dent as to whether the require-
ments of Jackson-Vanik have
been met would be made in full
consultation with the Congress
Q: If you had been Secretary of
State in 1978, would you have
proposed that the U.S. sell 60
high performance, F-15 jet
fighters to Saudi Arabia?
A: I support the 1978 decision
. The U.S. has had a long
standing interest in Saudi
security and territorial integrity
and it has long been U.S. policy
to assist Saudi Arabia to develop
an adequate defense capability
.... I do not believe that it ad
versly affected the balance of
power in the Persian Gulf region.
Q: Would you recommend to
President Reagan .... that he
also disapprove any Saudi
request for sale of this offensive
equipment (bomb racks, fuel
tanks, advanced air-to-air
missiles)? .
A: It would be premature for me
to say what I would recommend
Q: Do you think the U.S.
should recognize a unified Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel and
under Israeli jurisdiction?
A: It has been the U.S. position
for three decades that the final
status of Jerusalem must be re-
solved through the process of
negotiations and that the out-
come of such negotiations should
not be prejudiced by unilateral
action by any party. I associate
myself fully with this view. The
U.S. must continue its efforts to
help bring about a settlement of
the issue of Jerusalem satis-
factory to all those directly
Any move to extend formal
recognition before an agreed
settlement of the status of Jeru-
salem has been reached would
undercut both our efforts and
those of the parties to bring
about such a settlement and to
achieve a comprehensive Middle
East peace. At the same time, I
firmly believe that Jerusalem
should never be divided again by
barbed wire and artificial
A: Although both Security
Council resolutions (Mar. 1 and
Aug. 20) contained elements that
are in accord with American
policy that has remained con-
stant through Administrations
Republican and Democratic, I
consider both to have been deeply
flawed and unbalanced. I believe
it would be very difficult to say
now just what I would have
recommended, not being fully
aware of all relevant circum-
stances, including the climate of
the Middle East, the status of the
peace process, and the environ-
ment at the UN at the time the
resolutions were presented.
It is fair to say in retrospect,
Q: If you had been Secretory of
State during the past year, how
would you have recommended
the U.S. delegation vote on the
two UN votes dealing with Israeli
treatment of territories it cap-
tured in the June 1967 war? The
first deal with Israeli settlements
of the West Bank and the general
disposition of that area; the
second UN resolution condemned
Israel's move affirming Jeru-
salem as its eternal capital.
Q: Do you think the U.S.
should insist that President
Sadat sign a formal facilities
access agreement with the U.S.
before we make improvements to

Coll ge Presents
Strindberg Play
Bay area audiences will have a
rare theatrical treat when HCC
presents August Strindberg's
psychological ghost story, The
Pelican. The student directed
production will be performed
Thursday through Saturday,
Feb. 12-14, in the intimate Studio
Theatre, located in the Per-
forming Arts Building on the
Ybor City Campus. Admission is
Free and curtain is set at 8 p.m.
The Pelican, written in 1907, is
one of four chamber plays written
by Strindberg for the Intimate
Theatre of Stockholm which he
founded. The production relies
heavily on mood and atmosphere
for conveying meaning, and has
been compared stylistically to the
works of Ingmar Bergman. In
The Pelican, Strindberg cleverly
weaves an odd assortment of
recurring themes such as
vampirism, somnambulism,
incest and death.
Acting in the production and
directing will be Robert Hatch
who most recently was a com-
pany member with the Alice
People Theatre, and who was
featured last season with Joy
Drain Johnson in HCC's highly
acclaimed production of The
Chairs. Also featured in The
Pelican will be Anne Thai,

Knesset Approval
June 30 Election Date Expected to be Agreed Upon
The Knesset is expected
this week to approve June
30 as the election date.
Highly placed government
sources indicated that there
is general agreement within
Prime Minister Menachem
Begins coalition on that
date instead of July 7, the
date proposed in the gov-
ernment-initiated election
bill presently before the
Knesset's Legal Com-
mittee. Although the op-
position Labor Alignment
is still pressing for May,
elections, most political
pundits believe it will settle
for elections at the end of
The Legal Committee's recom-
mendation of June 30 appears
virtually certain after Education
Minister Zevulun Hammer in-,
formed Begin that it would not
interfere with schooling.
MANY OF Israels elementary
and high schools serve as polling
places, and Begin had asked
Hammer if his ministry had any
objections. Hammer noted that
elementary schools recess for the
summer on June 30 and that high
schools close on June 23 facts
well known to the Prime Minister
and that closing elementary
schools a day earlier would have
no impact.
Begin's question was viewed in
some political circles aa a stalling
tactic, inasmuch as it delayed the
Legal Committee's decision on
the matter by a week. But gov-
ernment sources insisted that the
Prime Minister was fully com-
mitted to early elections and was
not having "second thoughts."
The July 7 date was opposed by
l>oth coalition and opposition
members, partly because it is the
vacation season and many Israeli
voters will be abroad.
There was also speculation that
Hammer's National Religious
Party was anxious to postpone
elections as long as possible
because the bribery trial of Reli-
gious Affairs Minister Aharon
Abu-Hatzeira, who is accused of
bribe-taking, will be a severe
burden for the religious party to
bear during a bitterly fought
election campaign, even if the
minister is eventually acquitted.
The trial opens this week.
THE NRP hoped to have as
much time elapse as possible be-
tween the end of the trial and
election day. It also faces pos-
sible defections. Rabbi Haim
Druckman, a hawkish MK who is
close to the Gush Kmunim. is
reported to be on the verge of
leaving the party and establish-
ing his own independent election
That threat has caused Ham-
mer's "young guard" faction
within the party to adopt a
harder political line which in turn
exacerbated its tensions with the
moderate Lamifneh faction
Waldheim Defends
UN Stamp Honoring
'Palestinian People*
(JTA) Secretary General
T fended the issuance by the
nited Nations Postal Ad-
ninistration of three
amps bearing the inscrip-
ion, "Inalienable Rights of
ie Palestinian People," in
English, French and Ger-
lan. The stamps, author-
d by a General Assembly
(solution in 1979, drew
- groups and individuals.
Waldheim. in a statement read
by a UN Spokesman, responded
charges that the stamps may
itimize terrorism. "There was
no intention, by implication or
otherwise, to legitimate terrorism
to which the UN remains
si.ongly opposed, nor to jeopar
the legitimate rights of any
in its member states," the state-
it said. The spokesman noted
tl it the stamps were being
i ued with the objective "of
l ilicizing the inalienable rights
ie Palestinian people "
e added, "The importance of
,ring the rights of the Pales-
an people in the process of
.blishing a permanent peace
in the Middle East has been
accepted by the vast majority of
the world community, including
all the parties directly concerned
with the'quest ion of Palestine."
The spokesman noted that
profits from the sale of the
stamps "as in the case of all UN
lamps, will be placed in the UN
General ind which is redis-
tributed t( its members."
The stamps are valid only
when posUd from UN premises.
The 15-cent denomination stamp,
which bears its inscription in
English, is for mailing from UN
headquarters here. The UN has
two post offices, one in the public
area open to visitors and oper-
ated by the UN Postal Adminis-
tration and the other in the Sec-
retariat building which is
managed by the U.S. Postal
The two other stamps are for
use at UN headquarters in
Geneva. The one inscribed in
French has a denomination of
F.s. 0,80 and the one with the
German inscription a denom-
ination of S4. The English and
French-inscribed stamps were
printed in quantities of 1.9
million each and the German in-
scribed stamp 2.1 million. All are
printed in four colors and were
designed by an American, David
Dewhurst. Many stamp dealers
said they would not distribute
the stamps.
headed by Interior Minister
Yosef Burg. An angry debate de-
veloped over the weekend as to
which faction would head the
party's election list. Hammer in-
dicated that he would do his ut-
most to present a united image to
the electorate.
Meanwhile, former Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan has
promised to decide by early April
whether he will form his own
political party and enter it in the
elections. Since quitting Begin's

has aroused speculation as to his
political future.
INITIALLY. Dayan said" he
would serve out his Knesset term
and retire from politics. But he
appears to have changed his
mind of late and some observers
believe he intends to join with
other former members of Begin's
Cabinet to establish a new cen-
trist faction.
However, he told a meeting of
the Engineers Club in Tel Aviv
that he would offer himself as the
head of a new party if he could
find 10 to 15 other political
figures who shared his views. He
insisted that he would not join
former Finance Minister Yigal
Hurwitz's Rafi faction which quit
Begin's coalition last month.
Dayan said the main point of his
political program would be uni-
lateral implementation of the
autonomy plan for the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, meaning
that Israel would act alone with-
out waiting for Egypt, Jordan or
the Palestinians to agree to the

IN A WORLD of renewed anti-

duction was therefore a time-
bomb. Whether it intended to or
not, it gives Hitler and his hench-
men a new respectability that
they did not have in the first
place and that the world hardly
needs for them to have today.
While increasingly, the horren-
dous genocidal master plan of the
Nazi era is being discounted
these days as mere Zionist propa-
ganda, while the horror of the
Holocaust is being denied as
never having taken place al-
together, productions like
"Bunker" do not give sustenance
to the victims.
On the contrary, productions
like "Bunker" feed the roaches of
reproach, the spawn of Hitler in-
carnate. They give them the
Lazarus treatment: they are
resurrected to resume their
purpose. Perhaps in this, the
Hitlerian prediction of ultimate
justification was absolutely on
I SAID at the outset that CBS
has been carrying on a war
against the Jews. To "Bunker"
must be added the recent "Play-
ing for Time," with CBS stone-
walling incensed national Jewish
opinion against its decision to
star the PLO apologist, Vanessa
Redgrave, in the role of Fania
Fendon, who managed to survive
the agony of Auschwitz.
Can you imagine CBS insult-
ing, say, Roman Catholic opinion
in the same way? This is why it
appears that CBS seems to be
carrying on a war against the
Jews. In "Playing for Time," at
least the insensitive ideologues
surrounding that production,
including playwright Arthur
Miller himself, could offer the
treacly argument in its defense

A final thought might suggest
that Jews themselves are partly
to blame for the dilemma. We
must rethink the Nazi period. We
must rethink the Holocaust. I
mean this in the sense that we
must get it off the market of a
world opinion wearied by its
preachment. We have pushed it
too hard on a Christian civiliza-
tion that wrestles with its anti-
Semitic impulses every day. Let's
knock off the pussyfooting and
be frank about it: Anti-Semitism
is an imperative of Christianity.
To deny this is to demonstrate
ignorance of Christian theology.
WE MUST cool the at-
mosphere. Constantly to keep it
heated is to exacerbate anti-
Semitism, to encourage the
Christian imperative of its pro-
liferation. There is no doubt that

the principle that to be quiet
meant to discourage anti-Semites
from being aware of our existence

I mean nothing of the kind. Of
course, we must teach the Nazi

ourselves and to our children
until the end of the generations in
much the same way that we teach
our children and ourselves the

But it is fruitless to teach
others in the same way.
"Bunker" is a perfect example of
the confused results of our best

them by encouraging just the
opposite. It can contribute to
destroying us, as well.

Dyess said. He said that Haig

which advocate and use the

IN ADDITION, Dyeaa said,

Dyess, who made his extensive
remarks about the Soviets in
response to questions, refused to
respond, however, when asked if
the PLO was a terrorist
organization. Haig has described
it as an "umbrella organization"
for various elements including
terrorists, while Reagan has cha-
racterized it as terrorist.
The Dyess statements about
Soviet actions came against the
backgroud of two other develop-
ments involving the PLO. The
Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) was reported to
have proposed the steepest
reduction of U.S. foreign aid
since the program was begun
after World War II. One of the
reported proposals calls for U.S.

AT THE same time, it was
indicated that military and
economic assistance for Israel
and Egypt would be continued as
in the past year. At the OMB,
officials resolutely refused to
discuss the reports but did not
deny them. Haig met later with
Reagan's Budget director, David
Stockman, to discuss the
program. Stockman's proposals
call for cutting the 1982 foreign
aid program proposed by
President Carter to Congress by
the amount of $2.6 billion to the
level of S5.4 billion.
In another development, Dyess
was asked about Israel's air
strikes at PLO bases in south
Lebanon following the rocket
shelling ot two Israeli boarder
Asked to comment, Dyess
said: "Obviously, we are con-
cerned about violence across the

comments on international
terrorism and the Soviet view of
liberation movements, Dyess was
asked if he considered the West
'Bank and Gaza to be occupied
territories. "I'm not going to get
into that," he replied, noting that
"We are engaged in reviews of
policies around the world. We are
not going to address specifics
until we have a chance to com-
plete the review."
When Dyess was asked if "the
West Bank people are fighting
1 what they believe to be an in-
vasion of their country by
Israel," he replied, "I'm not
going to characterize the
situation on the West Bank."
The question had been asked in
the context of his remarks about
Afghanistan. The State
Department spokesman observed
that the West Bank situation is
"a far more complex matter."
AJComm. Chief Weinstock Dead at Age 61
But his real strength, which he
developed further during the
tough years ahead in Parlia-
mentary committees and meet-
ings on the future of Beduin-
owned lands in the Negev, was
the characteistic which became
known as the "Abu Rabiya way"
the special dignity with which
he represented Israel's Arabs and
which earned him the highest
respect from the benches of all
Knesset factions.
THIS WAS not just a question
of being the only one among the
six Arab Knesset members to
wear the traditional dress of his
people. It was much more than
this: the feeling of duality the
sincere loyalty to his country, of
which he was a good citizen on
one hand, and to his own people,
of which he was a faithful son, on
the other.
On many occasions, this basic
characteristic came to a full
expression. The way in which he
related to the Tel Malhata
Airfield evacuation problem an
area in the South designated for
an Israel airfield to replace the
one in the Rafidim area of Sinai
evacuated by Israel after the
peace treaty with Egypt, the way
in which he reacted to radicals
from among his own Beduin
youngsters, the way in which he
defended the rights of Arab
citizens but without overlooking
their obligations.
Once he stated, "Whether we
are Israeli Arabs, Palestinians or
residents of the administered
areas .there if no difference, .we
can only survive if and when we
recognize Israel's right to survive
in secure and mutually
recognized borders."
ASKED TO explain how he, a
nomad from the Negev desert,
felt to sit in the Knesset, he said,
"I am proud to be an Arab
Beduin in a democracy known as
the State of Israel." He was a
moderate, far-seeing man who
had the interests of his own
Beduin people in mind before
anything else. He often said
about the delicate land problem,
"We do not say that we demand
all of the land. Give us half of it
and we will be pleased."
Frequently challenged in pub-
lic appearances by his adver-
saries as to why Israeli Beduin do
not demonstrate or act violently
to assert their claims, he always
said, "One thing should be clear:
we are Israeli citizens, we will
struggle only in the framework of
legal actions. We are confident of
winning our rights through legal
persuasion and public support.

Opposition Mounting in Bonn Against Tank Sale
BONN Opposition seems to
be mounting to plans by West
Germany to equip Saudi Arabia
with the new German-made Leo-
pard II tanks and other military
materiel. While the Saudis con-
tend that the arms shipments
had been promised by Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt, the veteran
Social Democratic leader, Her-
bert Wehner, said that no major-
ity for the deal is expected in the
Bundestag faction of the ruling
Social Democratic Party (SDP).
In an interview with German
television last Friday, Wehner,
chairman of the SDP*s parlia-
mentary faction, and one of the
most influential members of the
SDP, observed that during the
summit meeting of the Islamic
nations in Taif, Saudi Arabia last
week, Saudi Arabia played a
major role in urginga jihad (holy
war) against Israel. "We do not
want to be pulled into that,"
Wehner said.
TEL AVIV The Labor
Party, confident of victory in the

promised to honor all inter-
national agreements and obli-
gations entered into by the
present Likud-led regime but
would not be bound by Likud
actions or promises with respect
to settlements on the West Bank
and economic policy.
Labor Party Chairman Shimon
Peres made this clear at a special
supplementary session of the
party's convention which was
held last December. The session
was devoted to discussions of the
economic and social programs

NEW YORK Barry Rosen,
one of the former hostages who
participated with 21 of his com-
rades in a joyful welcome home
reception here last Friday, made
a stop at Temple Emanu-El to-
gether with his wife, Barbara.
The couple had telephoned in
advance to make sure their visit
would be all right, Rosen said.
The Rosens were greeted by
Rabbi David Posner, associate
rabbi of the world's largest
Reform congregation, and assis-
tant Rabbi Richard Chapin.
Rosen asked if he could hold one
of the synagogue's Torahs for a
few minutes. Then he and Mrs.
Rosen and the two rabbis joined
in prayer before the ark. The
Rosens visited Temple Emanu-El
after attending services at St.
Patrick's Cathedral where Mrs.
Rosen, a Roman* Catholic, took
part in the services.

operating smoothly today after a
series of embarrassing and pro-
vocative incidents before and
after the fair opened.
The situation of the Israeli dis-
play adjacent to the Palestinian
stand made trouble inevitable
from the start. When the Israeli
Ambassador to Egypt. Eliahu
Ben-Elissar, visited his country's
Iwoth, a raucous exchange de-
veloped between Israelis and
Palestinians. The organizers of
the fair responded by ordering
the Israeli flag removed, a
demand that triggered bitter in-
dignation among the Israelis.
The Israel Publishers Associ-
ation, which is sponsoring the ex-
hibit, seriously considered with-
drawing from the fair. But the
Egyptians, aware of the serious
repercussions this could have on
the peace process, proposed that
the Israeli stand be moved to the
main exhibition hall where the
Western countries' pavilions are
located. Previously, the
Egyptians had claimed there was
no room in that section.
