Reagan Administration Defends Sale;
Admits Egypt Seeks Sophisticated Arms
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration maintains that
it does not believe its multi-
billion arms package sale to
Saudi Arabia will threaten
Israel's security. "We don't
believe it imposes a
security risk to Israel,"
State Department
spokesman Dean Fischer
said. "We remain commit-
ted to maintaining Israel's
military strength."
Fischer stressed that a "strong
Israel serves our broadest stra-
tegic needs and interests, in-
cluding countering Soviet threats
in the region."
The Administration announced
last week that it plans to sell the
Saudis five AW ACS (Airborned
Warning and Control Systems)
that can track 400 planes si-
multaneously and equiped with
radar systems with a range of 350
miles at high altitude and 250
miles at low altitude; AIM-9L
air-to-air missiles, an advanced
version of the Sidewinder mis-
siles; fuel tanks for the 62 F-15s
the Saudis will start receiving
from the United States next year,
and seven KC-135 refueling
planes to serve both the AW ACS
and the F-15s. But the Ad-
ministration did not announce
when it will formally notify
Congress of the sale.
Congress, especially to the
AW ACS, has led to the belief
that the Administration will
delay official notification until
after the June 30 Israeli elections
and perhaps even longer. The sale
goes through automatically
unless it is rejected by a vote in
both the House and Senate with-
in 50 days of notification.
Fischer, however, maintained
that no decision has been made to
delay or not to delay notification
until the summer. But, he
stressed, the Administration will
submit the proposal and intends
to "fight for it" as a package.
Adminstration souces said
that the announcement was made
to clear up press speculation on
whether the Administration
planned to go ahead with the
sale. The sources denied the
announcement was made under
Saudi pressure or had anything
to do with the visit to Washing-
ton of Shekih Ahmed Yamani,
the Saudi oil minister.
Senate Majority Leader
Howard Baker (R., Term.) was
scheduled to meet with Secretary
of State Alexander Haig after

believed to be crucial on the
I timing for submitting the

edged that the U.S. is consider-
ing a request from Egypt for an
early warning system, possibly
the EC-2 Hawkeye, a less ad-
vanced system than the
AW ACS. Israel has four

Oil Czar in Warning
Capitol HiU Divides Up;
Issue Postponed for Now
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration is faced with
growing opposition in Con-
gress to selling Saudi
Arabia a package of sophis-
ticated military hardware
and pressure from the
Saudis to go ahead with the
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig and Richard Allen, Presi-
dent Reagan's National Security
Adviser, both supported splitting
up the package, with Defense
Secretary Casper Weinberger
IT WAS Weinberger, report-
edly, who pushed through the
National Security Council the
decision, over Haig's opposition,
to combine the AW ACS and the
enhancement material. The
decision was made Apr. 13 just
prior to Haig's recent trip to the
Middle East.
Fischer's only comment on the
sale itself has been to refer
reporters to a Mar. 6 statement
by the State Department which
said the U.S. had decided to sell
the Saudis the equipment for the
F-15s and was considering some
kind of defense warning system
for them.
The Department spokesman
would not comment on a state-
ment by Sheikh Ahmed Yamani,
the Saudi oil Minister, that the
US. had promised Saudi Arabia
the weaponry as a package. "We
got a promise from the govern-
ment that it will be done, and we
think it will be done," Yamani
said on NBC-TV's "Meet the
Press." He said that "not to my
knowledge" was there any dis-
cussion by Haig while in Saudi
Arabia about a postponement of
the sale.
IN AN interview with ABC-
TV, Haig said Congressional
disapproval of the sale "would
represent a grievous setback in

UJA Mobilizes for Nationwide Campaign
InResponse to Agency Budget Shortages
NEW YORK, N.Y. United
Jewish Appeal National Chair-
man Herschel Blumberg today
urged communities nationwide to
join in an accelerated "campaign
realization and cash mobili-
zation" drive in April and May in
response to severe cuts in funds
for life enhancing programs and
services in Israel.
The UJA National Chairman
named Judy Slater of Boston,
Mass., UJA Northeast Region
Women's Division Chairman, to
head the special 1981 Campaign
Blumberg, citing sharp re-
ductions in the Jewish Agency's
budget for 1981-82, said, "The
months of April and May consti-
tute a crucial period in our 1981
Campaign to meet minimum
Jewish needs and in our effort to
provide an effective flow of cash
to continue our human support
services in Israel and around the
He added that a critical short-
age of cash at the Agency
"means fewer teenagers in Youth
Aliyah programs, lessened sup-
port for pioneering young
families in Galilee p resettle-
ments and a lack of progress in
development of the new settle-
ments in the Negev for those who
must leave the Sinai as a result of
the Camp David accords."
"I am convinced that we can
meet and even exceed our 1981
Campaign goal if we make an all-
out effort during April and May
to reach all those who have not
yet made their pledges," Blum-
berg said. "We must aim for
a minimum increase of 25 percent
in all outstanding gifts.''
Slater described the special ef-
fort as seeking to improve cash
flow to the Agency while at the
same time meeting specific goals
for total pledges in April, May,
and June.
She said that because in
Hebrew the figure "chai" means
both "life" and the number 18,
UJA has set a "chai" "cash
collection goal of S18 million in
April and $18 million in May, and
a goal of $36 million, twice
"chai," in June.
In addition, Slater said the
special mobilization plan calls for
1981 Campaign pledge totals to
reach $350 million this week and
to rise to $380 million by May 1,
$410 million by May 15 and $450
million by June.
All UJA resources and
national and regional lay leader-
ship will be available to assist
communities in the program,
Slater said. She stressed that
UJA and communities will utilize
the significant historic dates and
events that are observed in this
period in their special campaign
and cash mobilization efforts.
"In addition to Passover, in
these two months we observe the
anniversary of the Warsaw
ghetto uprising, Holocaust
Memorial Day, Jewish Heritage
Week, Israel's Independence
Day, Lag B'Omer and the anni-
versary of the reunification of
"These events provide us with
the opportunity to reflect on our
past as we work to ensure a
stable and life enhancing future
for the Jewish people every-
where," Slater said. "As world-
wide inflation and the enormous
cost of the peace treaty with
Egypt take their toll on the basic
quality of life for the people we
brought to Israel, we must make
a special effort to maintain the
humanitarian programs of the
Jewish Agency at adequate
"We have not provided suffi-
cient cash in a timely manner to
meet day-to-day Agency ex-
penditures for human services,"
Blumberg said. "In an era in
which rising demand and in-
flationary program costs force us
to run fast just to stand still, it is
essential that the entire
American Jewish community
unite behind this effort."
Friend-To-Friend Program
"Those who bring sunshine to
the lives of others cannot keep it
from themselves" Sir James
There usually isn't much sun-
shine in the life of an abusive
parent. Instead, life is almost
always clouded by criticism,
loneliness and isolation.
The Friend-to-Friend Program
involves volunteers who serve to
bring some sunshine into the
lives of abusive or potentially
abusive parents. These volun-
teers receive expert training in
providing troubled parents with
an opportunity to have a friend
reach out to them. A new training
program begins May 11.
The Friend-to-Friend Program
is a private, non-profit, volunteer-
based child abuse program to
help abusive parents have a non-
judgmental, nurturing and sup-
portive friend. A volunteer can
often get closer to abusive par-
ents than the professionals. We
are again recruiting for a training
Volunteers who have been in
the program for some time will be
on hand to share their experi-
ences with you.
If you are unable to attend the
meeting but would like further
information about the Friend-to-
Friend Program, please call 251-
8080 or contact Friend-to-Friend

There will be two television
stations with special programs

Channel 16, there will be two pro-
grams presented. "Avenue of the

the path leading to Yad Vashem,
the Holocaust Memorial in Israel.
The path, also known as the
Avenue of Righteous Gentiles, is

dividuals who helped to save
. t s-i-M .
Jews from the Holocaust. At the
base of each tree is a stone
marker bearing the name of the
"Holocaust, A Need to
Remember" is the program made
locally with survivors of the
Holocaust each telling their own
story. It has been shown before
here and it is worth repeating.
"Echoes of Children" recalls
the 1,000,000 children who
perished in the Holocaust. Many
of their own writings will be used.

Senior Citizen Nutrition Program
There have been some changes
in the lunch program at the Jew-
,sh Community Center that need
The Lunch Program," aa we
all call it, is part of the Senior
Citizen Nutrition Program
funded primarily by the Federal
Government with cooperation
and additional funding by the
State of Florida and Hills-
borough County. Marilyn Blake-
ley, site supervisor at the JCC,
said that she does not believe the
senior's nutrition program is in
danger of being cut under the
President's budget cuts because
President Reagan has said
repeatedly that the nutrition pro-
gram for the elderly would not be
However, there have been
some tightening of the budget
and there were no additional
funds allowed this year meaning
with inflation there have to be
Where were the cuts made?
The first things which dis-
appeared were coffee and tea with
the meals. The dieticians said
"There was no nutritional value
in these beverages, therefore, it
did not matter if they were eli-
minated," according to Mrs.
Blakeley Now that may be true,
but meals do seem more enjoy-
able with a drink at hand. At the
otrwr senior lunch programs, the
seniors can drink milk with their
Son of Modigliani Turns
Up as French Parish Priest
PARIS (JTA) The long-
lost son of Jewish painter
Amadeo Modigliani has been
found in a small village near
Pans where he serves as the local
parish priest. Father Gerad
ThirouxVillette, 64, told a
French newspaper that he had
known since he was 13 years old
that he was the son of the world
famous artist whom many critics
describe as the greatest painter of
the 20th Century. The painter's
son was "discovered" by Le
Journal de Dimanche as a ret-
rospective exhibition of Mo-
digliani's major works opened at
the Pompidou Center.
Modigliani, at his death in
1920, left two infant children: a
two-year-old daughter, Janine,
and a tour-month old son,
Gerard. After the painter died,
his brother, Emmanuel, came
from Livorno (Leghorn), Italy to
look for the children. Janine was
found and taken to Livorno
where she was formally adopted
by the painter's sister who gave
her the family name.
The boy disappeared, and only
art historians knew of his
presumed existence. Now, he
says that his mother, who was an
art student and 20 years old at
the time of his birth, first left him
with foster parents who gave him
the name of Villette. Later, she
care for him herself.
He said he has never been in
touch with his father's family and
does not intend to do so now.
Thiroux-Villette said he wants to
be forgotten by the outside world.
Synopis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard,
in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights. shall ye
have" (Lev. 19.36-36).
KEDOSHIM -Ye shall be holy; for I the Lord your God am
holy. Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and ye
shall keep My sabbaths Turn ye not unto the idols And
when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly
nap the corner of thy field neither shalt thou gather the
fallen fruit of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor
and the stranger ... Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal
falsely, nor lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by My
name falsely Thou shalt not oppress thy neighbor, nor rob
him; the wages of a hired servant shall not abide with thee all
night until morning. Thou shalt not curse the deal, nor put a
stumbling-block before the blind ... Ye shall do no unright-
eousness in judgment. Thou shalt not go up and down as a
talebearer neither shalt thou stand idly by the blood of thy
neighbor. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" (Leviticus
19.2-18). "Ye shall be holy unto Me; for I the Lord am holy, and
have set you apart from the neoples, that ye should be Mine"
(Uviticus 20.26).

meals, not at the JCC for this is a
kosher lunch facility and all of
the meals are meat. But no ex-
ception for coffee or tea could be
made and only water is available
at the JCC.
Which brings up the next
budget cuts. Styrofoam cups and
plastic flatware. That's right, if a
glass of water is to be had with
the meal, it is available only if the
person brought a cup from home.
Mrs. Blakeley explained that
with the rise in price of all petro-
leum derivities, such as styro-
foam and plastic, these items had
to be eliminated from the budget.
Every day those coming to lunch
must arrive with their own cup
and with their own silverware.
This is true not only of the JCC
lunch program, but of all the hot
meal programs in Hillsborough
County. The other programs are
held in recreational centers
without fully equipped kitchens.
The program at the JCC is being
held in a completely furnished
kosher kitchen and still "the
participants have to bring their
cup and silverware from home."
Why? There are no funds for
washing anything at the lunch
sites. "It is not the job of the
cooks," Mrs. Blakeley explained.
"The other lunch sites have no
washing facilities and no furnish-
ings are at the sites."
To say this is the Center's
lunch program is a misnomer. It
is a Senior Citizen Nutrition pro-
gram which is held at the Jewish
Community Center. But being
held at the JCC there should be a
measure of dignity and pride in-
volved. Coming daily with a cup
and knife and fork and spoon in
one's pocket doesn't have very
much dignity.
Service clubs which are always
on the lookout for meaningful
projects, are you listening?
Lunch Program Statistics
There are 131 active partici-
pants although the daily number
of meals served vanes. Some
registrants come only three times
a week, some on any given day do
not feel well. Some are away.
There is a waiting list of 14.
The number of meals for which
this site is authorized has been
cut to 90.
Marilyn Blakeley estimated
the following numbers concern-
ing the JCC program: About
three-fourths come from the Jew-
ish Towers; about one-half of the
participants are Jewish; those
who are kosher are asked to sign
a statement so stating.
This is the only kosher facility
in Hillsborough County.

Yom Hashoah
Following the nostalgia and traditions of
Passover,come the brief mourning of Yom Hashoah
and the joy of Israel Independence Day. Not by
accident was the Day of remembrance for the Six
Million victims of the Holocaust set just before the
celebration of the rebirth of the State of Israel. That
is our tradition. We always pause to remember those
who are no longer with us before we celebrate any
happy event.
Tampa will gather for Yom Hashoah Tuesday
evening at 8 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center.
This has been an overflow occasion for the few years
which it has been a community observance sponsored
by Tampa Jewish Federation. This year would be no
different. The speaker, Lily Kopecky, is not only one
who was part of the Holocaust, she spends her life
teaching others "to teach" this awesome subject
matter. Her credentials speak for themselves as the
page one story indicates.
Israel Independence Day will have an all new
Maccabiah format developed by a hard-working
committee of the Jewish Community Center. Sunday
May 10 you'll enjoy, you'll smile, you'll feel proud to
recognize Israel's 33rd anniversary observed at the
JCC from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
And this Sunday, May 3 from 11 a.m.-2 ^.m. is
an Open House for the JCC during which they will be
happy to show you every aspect of their program,
and their facilities. Everything is open and free this

Mideast Geopolitcal Struggle
With regard to these planes, we have been
warning in our editorial columns all along that the
AW ACS would become an Israeli issue rather than
what it ought to be a nationwide issue. And so
they have. Can we afford to arm the Saudis with
AW ACS when, more and more, they appear to be
going down the road toward their own destruction |
taken earlier by the regime of the Shah of Iran?
Can we afford that, in the event of such a Saudi
self-disappearing act, our AWACS fall into enemy
hands precisely in the same way that so much of our
sophisticated weaponry given to the Shah of Iran fell
into enemy hands?
Those who say we can not are now being
regarded merely as supporters of Israel rather than
as persons concerned with the safety of America, as
well. Neither is the issue an academic question as,
Saudi Arabia's oil czar, Sheikh Yamani, demon-
strated so clearly last week on two separate oc-
casions, once on national American television and
then a second time before a Foreign Policy Associa-
tion meeting in New York.
Both times, Yamani declared flat out that Israel
is a greater threat to the stability of the Middle East
than the Soviet Union this from an Arab mon-
archist who would survive along with his country
only if Israel were to survive. And who would go the
way of the Shah of Iran if Israel were not to survive,
and the Russians were permitted to have their way in
in that area of the world.
We are not often given to quoting Egypt's Pres-
ident Sadat, whom we have not trusted from the
word go. Still, while he applauded the Reagan Ad-
ministration's decision to supply the Saudis with
AWACS last week, he also remarked that the Saudis
are a nation poised on the brink of disaster because
they simply fail to recognize the realities of today's
THE LATE Marxist phil-
osopher, Herbert Marcuse. said
of art that its purpose is to ad-
vance the principles of pro-
letarian revolution. Any other
kind is decadent, and he saw
graffiti as the only worthwhile art
being produced in the 20th Cen-
tury the street and dewalk
art of dogmatic revolutionary
But any artist will tell you that
the purpose of his art is to please
himself. And if he is willing to
suffer the tribulations of non-
recognition of failing at the
same time that he pleases himself
also to please others if he is
willing to do this as he risks
everything in order to reap the
rewards of success, then what
business is it of anyone else to
judge his art except on a basis of
like or dislike?
reasonable enough, but there is
little that is reasonable in Marx-
ist practice, and the theoreticians
of Marxism. Marcuse included,
have always been willing for
otners to suffer the preachment
of their principles so long as they,
themselves, have remained safely
and steadfastly immune to its
illogical effects.
One has only to look at the art
productivity of any Marxist
regime, specifically the Soviet
Union's, to see how political dog-
gerel translated into panoramic
posters produces little more than
a visual putrescence that is
Artists in the Communist
world who dare to depart from
this kind of controlled produc-
tivity, from the aesthetic design
to which Marcuse referred in the
most praiseworthy sense as graf-
fiti, is by definition decadent, re-
vanchist and dangerous.
THE REASON is obvious: the
artist who follows his own star is
consumed by the need for self-ex-
pression and therefore indifferent
to the needs of the state. Ergo, he
is counterrevolutionary and must
be censored.
AH of this comes to mind as a
consequence of the defection the
other week of Maxim Shostako-
vich to the United States. The
Soviet symphony orchestra
conductor is the son of the im-
mortal Dmitri Shostakovich, who
died in 1975. As an artist, pro-
claimed Maxim following his de-
i fection, he would not be able to
find the ultimate freedom he
needs in order to pursue his
career in the Soviet Union.
This, mind you, from an inter-
pretive artist, a performer.
Imagine the agonies his father
suffered, a creative artist, at the
crude hands of the Soviet ideo-
logues because there were times
when he simply spoke his aes-
thetic mind in his music without
regard to whether or not it ad-
vanced the glories of the revo-
IN FACT, you don't have to
imagine it at all. The lives ol
Dmitri Shostakovich and his
contemporary, Sergei Prokofiev
were entwined at least in this way
if no other: long after their death
they remain mute testimony tc
their victimization by the prin-
ciples for productivity of the
proper proletarian practitioner ot
art as set down by the Soviet
state. Or as defined by the Marx
ist theoretician, Marcuse. Or
others, there are so many others,
always prepared to fetter the free
human mind.
These are the men Maxim
Shostakovich surely had in mind
as he fled to the West, his father
and Prokofiev. The repeated
Muscovite humiliation of his
father and of Prokofiev could not
have escaped his memory.
It was, for example, Josef
Stalin who took particular and
repeated delight in turning the
thumbscrews on the exquisite
musical sensibilities of Dmitri
Shostakovich this brutal
swine of a man whose musical
understanding came to zero, but
who nevertheless offered up pro-

Danger: Rush for Crime Relief
John Hinckley Jr.'s mad deed
trying to kill President Reagan
with a six-shot double-action
revolver has touched off a new
rush to stem America's tide of
violence. As we all know now,
young Hinckley's act is believed
to have boiled up from lovesick
fantasies over Jodie Foster, a
current movie star. Nor can many
of us be unfamiliar with the fact
that he did a term paper oi.

Sad Story Behind 'Yordim'
Why So Many Jews Are Leaving Israel Permanently
London Chronicle Syndicate
It is a statistical certainty that
while Jews all over the world
stand up and say, L'shana haba'a
b' Yersushalayim (Next year in
Jerusalem), there are many in
Jerusalem itself who secretly
think, Leshana haba'a b' New
York ... or Philadelphia ... or
Los Angeles ... or London."
Exodus is an ancient word with a
new meaning in Israel, a country
built on the premise of immi-
gration which is alarmed and, in
some quarters, frightened by the
extent of eimigration. The word
for it is yerida, a going down, and
the opposite of aliya, a going up.
Every family knows about
yerida, and no family
acknowledges a yored.
"My brother's not a yored,"
said one girl, indignantly. "He's
coming back. He's only been
away for five years." But a few
minutes later, she was describing
how he had dashed back to Israel
to help during the Yom Kippur
War, nearly eight years ago. "I
don't like to think how fast time
goes," she said.
THERE ARE all kinds of
yordim. They teach in American
universities and drive American
taxis, they are company directors
intemperate Israeli recently. "At
least they stay in our society
when they finish their sentence."
"They are deserters, cowards,"
said another. But in many casts
they are ex-soldiers who have
and small shopkeepers, they
design computers and they work
as navvies. They an among the
best and among the worst. But
they all must have a minimum of
brains and bustle, for it la not
easy, as generations of Jews have
learned, to go to a strange land
where they speak a foreign
language and make a Irving.
"They are worse than the
criminals in our jails," said one
fought in at least two wars and
have risked their lives over and
over again for their country.
Take the children of Dr. and
Mrs. Josef Ganz, who live in the
Yemen Moshe district of Jeru-
salem. Dr. Ganz, a retired atomic
engineer, and his wife, Eva, born
in Liverpool, have two sabra chil-
dren, Allon Dan and Carmia.
Alton gained a Master's degree in
computer science at the Hebrew
University and went to Yale on a
fellowship. He was a paratrooper
and fought in the Six-Day War.
He is married to an Israeli, and
they have four children, one born |
in Israel, three in the U.S. He '
designs computers.
CARMIA is a professor at
Columbia University and is
engaged in cancer reserach. She
has two daughters. She also
served in the army. Said Dr.
Ganz: "They want to come back,
but the first thing you need is a
flat. They're building some near
here for four and a half rooms
you pay EL 80,000, ($200,000).
You can't get a proper mortgage,
so you have to take a bank loan
at such a high rate of interest
that you never pay it off. But if a
Russian comes, he gets every-
thing a flat, a reduction in in-
icome tax, all the help he needs.
My son did his duty, he didn't
run away."
Neither of the children can find
a job in Israel comparable in pay
or itatus to those they have in
America. They want to come
back mainly for the sake of then-
children, all technically Israeli
citizens. But some of the children
would prefer to stay in America.
When Mrs. Ganz hears slight-
ing references to yordim, she says
she "would like to punch
somebody. It's an awful ex-
pression, like a stigma. We are
overeducating our people. If it
were not for the Arab workers, we
would have no laborers. Doctors
can't get places after they have
finished training, so they go
INDEED, a few days later, her
view seemed to be borne out
when Alula hospital director
Shlomo Antebi said that 90 per-
cent of the first graduating class
(1967) of Tel Aviv University's
medical school 40 out of 46
were practicing abroad. It was
denied shortly afterwards. Many
of those abroad, it was said, wen
merely gaining additional qualifi-
cations and did not intend to
Hut the following night, 1 met a
young English doctor who had
given up a lucntive hospital post
in Sussex in order to work for half
the money in a Negev develop-
ment area. "They just can't get
doctors for nlaces like that," he
Dr. Jonathan Mann, a dentist
at the Hadassah Dental Center,
spent two years in America and
was so horrified at the extent of
the yerida problem that he has
founded an organization called
Ayala, which tries to help those
who wish to return. "Some people
leave Israel," he said, because
they are poor and have financial
problems, academics leave
because they are not satisfied
with their academic development
in Israel, and doctors and
psychologists leave because they
could not get jobs they wanted.
"Hadassah will only take the
best, and whenever there is a
vacancy, there is immense
competition for it. But it doesn't
mean to say that because a
doctor can't get a job in
Hadassah, he should leave the
country. Not everyone can be

head of a department, not even in
America. People think that here,
in a Jewish country, they should
get what they want. Other
people, he said, left because they
had income tax problems, or
because they were upset and
there was a place to go, some of
the family being already in the
U.S. Once it was difficult because
there was no one there who could
guarantee support until a job was
found. Now everyone knows
someone in America who will
provide work of sorts.
AFTER A few years, they
become eligible for a green card
which allows them to stay as long
as they like. "They take low
wages at first," said Dr. Mann,
"but slowly they find their way
around and open their own
businesses. Most of them don't
live very comfortably and earn an
average salary which would give
them a better living here. They
work hard, seven days a week.
My own feeling is that many of
them are not very happy."
Many of the Oriental Jews
from Israel go to New York. "I
know one who went to university
here and gained his Master's
degree in statistics," said Dr.
Mann. "I asked him what he was
doing in America. 'In Israel,' he
said, 'I'm called a black, and here
I'm called a white.' His two
brothers, who also went to
university in Israel, are with him
in the U.S. So is their mother.
They are in the flour distributing
"The yored says his roots an
in Israel, and that on* day ha will
come back. But vary faw do, and
a lot of those who do coma back

IK years. He son was born there.

MANN, son of the director-
general of Hadassah, is a former
paratroop officer. In America for
postgraduate studies, he met one
of his old soldiers. "What are you
doing here?" Mann asked him. "I
don't intend to stay," said the ex-
paratrooper. Two days laters,
Mann met his wife, and she told
him they had bought a house.
There are all sorts of reasons
for yerida. Some blame American
films and the good lite they show;
others the psychological stresses
of being an Israeli; most put it
down to the physical struggle.
Mann himself was offered a
chance to stay in the U.S. "If I
have to pick up a gun again and
Tight for a place, it wouldn't be
for the United States," he said,
"It would be for Israel. So I came
to the conclusion that the only
place I belong to is Israel.
"What will these yordim do
when they meet anti-Semitism
' abroad? The only place they can
frun back to Israel. So I" fight for
them, I" pay taxes, I'll work to
keep the country nice so that
they can come back when they
have problems. There's a burden
to be shared. If they were back
here, maybe I wouldn't have to
pay so much tax, maybe I
wouldn't have to do as many
weeks in the Army."
The irony became anger. "So
they succeed," said Mann. "So
what, a yored is a traitor." But is
1 he? It seems to be accepted that
people like Barenboim, Zuker-
man, Perl man and other virtuoso
musicians need to go abroad to be
able to fulfill themselves and
stretch their talents. Why should
a businessman be deprived of the
opportunity of testing his talents
against the American hustler and
fulfilling his urge to win the wider
"MY FEELINGS are not
much different for Barenboim
and the others. But at least they
are known as Israelis, and when
they play they give something to
Israel. But most of the others are
not doing anything more than
they would be doing here.
"I spoke of Hadassah in the
States. I said, 'Do me a favor and
don't support Israelis who come
here.' They were quite happy
when I said that, but when I
added, 'and make aliya,' their
faces changed. One woman stood
up and said, 'Dr. Mann, we have
got half a million Israelis in the
States. How can you ask me to
make aliya when 18 percent of the
population has left? That means I
there is something wrong. I will
give you money, but I won't
come to Israel.' Those were her
words, and I just didn't know
'what to say."
Holocaust Survivors
Condemn Bonn Sale
Frankfurt based Federation of
Jewish Holocaust Survivors pub-
lished an advertisement in
leading Wast German news-
papers condemning the Bonn
government's plane to sell highly
sophisticated weaponry to Saudi
Arabia. They warned that such a
move would only result in further
Arab oil blackmail. The text of
the ad reminded West Germans
that Saudi Arabia reiterated its
call for a holy war against Israel
only a few weeks ago. It stated
that the use of German arms to
attack Israel would not make

Safe Denounced
U.S. Jewish Leaders Sound Off
Jewish leaders have
denounced the planned sale
of the weapons to Saudi
Arabia. Howard Squadron,
chairman of the Conference
o Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organi-
zations, said the arms
package "will be damaging
to our country's interests,
harmful to .he jcause of
Middle East peace and
dangerous for our country's'
friend and ally, Israel."
Squadron said a Presidents
Conference delegation would
meet with Secretary of State Al-
exander Haig and Defense Secre-
tary Casper Weinberger at the
State Department. Squadron
added that he would hold a news
conference after the meeting.
RABBI Joseph Sternstein,
president of the American Zionist
Federation, said the Administra-
tion's decision on the arms sale is
"ill-conceived and injurious to
America's own vital strategic
interests" and "raises many
disturbing and disquieting issue
. .. Are we to assume that the
decisions for America's strategic
interests are to be made in
Riyadh .... la this the way the
United States punishes such a
stalwart friend such as Israel and
rewards such an arrogant and
unhanding element such as Saudi j
Arabia?" Stemstain urged the I
Jewish community to "mobilize 1
its full resources to oppose" the
would make petitions available to
be signed and sent to the White
House, State Department and
Congress. The petitions would
declare that "Saudi Arabia can
not be trusted to be an ally of the
U.S. now or in the future."
The Central Conference of
American Rabbis (CCAR), the
association of Reform rabbis,
said the arms sale was "un-
necessary" and was being pro-
posed "without achieving Saudi
acceptance of Israel and a firm
guarantee to join in the Camp
David peace process.
The CCAR also asserted that
the projected sale "will only serve
to fuel the arms race and antago-
nisms in the Middle Eas' further
destabilizing the region and act-
ing in the worst interests of the
United States and our allies." It
asked the Reagan Ad-
ministration to withdraw its
planned weapons sale to Saudi
Arabia, and if formal notification
was sent to Congress, "we call
upon Congress to vote against"
the proposal.
Leading emigration activists Vladimir and Maria Siepak manage

The couple was arrested for hanging a sign from their balcony in
Moscow demanding reunion with their son in Israel. They wrote
friends in Philadelphia: When nothing happens and every day is the
same, time goes faster. Perhaps it's good because the end of our term
comes sooner, yet these days are days of our lives, and unfortunately
we have only one life. But we must be optimistic and we'll win.'

Rabbi William Berkowitz,
president of the Jewish National
Fund, charged that the sale of
arms would be "catastrophic for
the United States, for Israel and
for the cause of peace and
stability in the Middle East."
Noting that there is nothing
"moderate" about the Saudi vow
to destroy Israel, he emphasized
that "the sale of such weapons
would only put them into the
hands of a regime that could
prove to be as unstable as Iran.
When will our country learn the
lesson that all the arms we pro-
vide the Saudis will not save
Prince Fahd anymore than the 1
Americans arms saved the throne;

RABBI SOL ROTH, president
of the Rabbinical Council of
America, said that sermons on

than 1,000 Orthodox congre-
gations emphasized the danger to

rightwing Liberty Lobby in the
1970s. The congressman charac-
terized Liberty Lobby as "a
racist, anti-Semitic organization"
and noted that "its publication,
'Spotlight,' espouses white
supremacy and refers to the Hol-
ocaust as a 'Jewish myth'."
Gejdenson cited an article by
Richardson that appeared on The

That U.S. 'Reconsider'
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israel has asked the
U.S. to "reconsider" its multi-million dollar arms sale to
Saudi Arabia, Israeli Ambassador Ephraim Evron said
here. He stressed that Israel is "objecting to the whole
package," not just to the AW ACS surveillance aircraft
included in the sale.
Evron made his statement after meeting with
Nicholas Veliotes, Assistant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs, at the State Depart-
ment. It was a follow-up to the meeting the Israeli envoy
had earlier with Secretary of State Alexander Haig.
Evron said the supply of arms to the Saudis "will
make our security that much more difficult to defend." He
noted that even if the AW ACS are manned by Americans,
where the planes will fly and what they will monitor will
be decided by the Saudis. He also contended that the sale
"undermines the stability of the area."
Evron said, he was aware of the opposition to the sale
in Congress but would not hazzard a guess as to whether
it would be rejected by the House and Senate.

The Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith charged that
Liberty Lobby "is the most pow-
erful and best financed anti-
Semitic propaganda organization
in the United States."
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the ADL, said that
during the four-year period when
Richardson was Liberty Lobby's
counsel, the organization
compiled a public record that
included attacks on "Zionist-
controlled politicians" who
supported Israel and tirades
against the intergration of Blacks
in education and in the armed
PERLMUTTER also noted
that the founder of Liberty
Lobby is Willis Carto, a longtime
anti-Semite and racist. Carto is
the key figure in the Institute for
Historical review, a California-
based, pseudo-scientific organi-
zation that promotes the claim
that the Holocaust is a myth, the
ADL leader said.
In view of this, he added,
having Richardson assume the
job of Assistant Secretary of the
health serviing department
would be "akin to designating a
paranoiac to be in charge of a
mental asylum."
Meanwhile, Rep. William
Broadhead (D., Mich) sent a
tetter to President Reagan urging
him to withdraw Rkhardaon
name from consideration because
of his association with Liberty
Lobby. "To persist in supporting
the nomination of Mr. Richard-
son would be a demonstration of
remarkable insensitivity toward
the Jewish community and all
people of conscience," Broadhead
HE NOTED that not only has
Liberty Lobby "a long and
virulent history of irresponsible
attacks on the Jewish community
in this country and around the
world," but it is now attempting
"through its surrogate, the Insti-
tute for Historical Review, to
rewrite the political history of
this century laying the blame for
two world wars on members of
the Jewish faith and denying the
very existence of the Holocaust."
Broadhead said Richardson's
nomination is wrong because of
his involvement "with so
malignant an organization" and
"because of the encouragement
which his nomination will give to
Liberty Lobby and other such or-
ganizations." He added that "we
should not be telling people that
if they organize to promulgate
these views, they will ultimately
be given an opportunity to ad-
vocate them from official
Dutch Foreign Minister Back
From Giving Israel a Lecture
Foreigh Minister Christoph van
der Klaauw has returned from his
visits to Syria and Lebannon, the
most provocative aspect of which
was his two-hour meeting in Da-
mascus with Palestine Liberation
Organization Chief Yasir Arafat
and his PLO lieutenants. The
Dutch diplomat, who made that
contact in his capacity of chair-
man of the Council of Ministers
of the European Economic
Community (EEC) which seeks
to have the PLO "associated"
with the Middle East peace
process, was accompanied by a
delegation from the Netherlands
Foreign Ministry.
Van der Klaauw had little to
say to reporters about his con-
versation with Arafat except that
it had been useful but yielded no
new elements. A PLO spokesman
was less reticent. He told
reporters in Damascus that
Arafat had informed van der
Klaauw that the PLO will not
negotiate on the basis of United
Nations Security Council Resolu-
tion 242 and that it is not
prepared to recognize Israel even
il ft withdraw to its pre-1967
ACCORDING to the spoke*
man, Arafat is willing to accept
Israel only within the borders al-
lotted to it by the UN General
Assembly's partition resolution
of November 29, 1947 and only if
all Palestinians are given the
right to return to their homeland
in what was Palestine at that
time. Arafat was said to expect
little from the European Middle
East initiative but favored
reviving the Geneva conference
under the joint chairmanship of
the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
Van der Klaauw also met with
President Elias Sarkis of Leba
non and visited, as Foreign Mm
ister, the Dutch contingent of the
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL). He praised
the Dutch soldiers and, on his
departure from Beirut, strongly
criticized Israeli attacks on south
Lebanon. A four-member Dutcn
parliamentary delegation, which
also visited Lebanon at the same
time, urged Israel to restrain the
activities of Maj. Saad Haddad s
Christian militia.

similar piece of nonsense torn
bloody from the depths of his
spirit and thrown as an act of ap-
peasement to the howling Krem-
lin dogs.
ONE OF the last of Dmitri
Shostakovich' masterpieces, his
Quartet No. 15 in E flat Minor,
Op. 144, is about as autobio-
graphical as it can possibly be.
Violist Alan George speaks of its
"all-prevading deathly gloom," a
statement suggesting the com-
poser's awareness of his impend-
ing death from a heart too weary
to continue his life's struggle.
The second movement is
marked by shrieks from each of
the participating instruments, a
crying out, as it appears to me, of
a creative spirit refusing to be
imprisoned by any sort of death
natural or sociological.
The following Funeral March
section seems to be the com-
poser's final acquiescence to the
inevitable; he can fight neither
his own mortality nor the Stalins
of the world who helped hasten
his end. But we are fooled, for in
the final movement there is a
recapitulation, a resurrection of
the past that ultimately must
George sees this as a "succes-
sion of weird mutterings, tap-
pings, warblings and tremblings
. blurred memories of the
earlier parts of the work," and
metaphorically, I believe, of

GEORGE IS not merely a vio-
list, any old violist. He is a
specific violist, a member of
Britain's famed Fitzwilliam
'String Quartet, for which Sho-
stakovich achieved profound
regard as an interpreter of his
own works.
It was G x>rge who wrote to
Shostakovich in Moscow, in-
viting him to come to England to
hear the Fitzwilliam play his
music at York University. Sho-
stakovich accepted. He arrived
early in November, 1972, and
what ensued between them is less
significant than two events

George recalls near the end of the
One was a memory of Shosta-
kovich at Royal Festival Hall in
London, when the applause fol-
lowing a performance there
rendered Shostakovich "visibly
overcome by the reception the
audience gave him something
he must have been well used to,
but to which he reacted as if it
were the first time."
The second is the Fitzwilliam
group's recollection of Shostako-
vich when they took him to
Victoria Station for the long trip
back to Moscow. Following very
difficult, tear-choking farewells,
George wrote: "As the train
pulled out of the station, his
(Shostakovich's) poor feeble
hand continued to wave until he
was out of sight."
EACH OF these memories
suggests the shock of recognition
that freedom gave Shostakovich
so briefly in England and the sad
unwillingness he experienced to
part with it as the train pulled
Surely, it was the same ex-
perience Prokofiev reported
during his many years away from
the Soviet Union, his sense of
loneliness in Europe and
America, and his decision to
return knowing full well what to
expect once he arrived back
home: the joy of motherland
renewed, the agony of its grim
political reality.
Dmitri Shostakovich's life as
an artist was a triumph over
Marxist tyranny, not a con-
sequence of it. His son, Maxim,
was surely motivated by that
understanding the other week
when he came West. The philoso-
phers of Marxist theory never
have to reckon with its grim
realities. Only the people who are
forced to suffer their follies do.
For Maxim Shostakovich, there
was a way out that not even his
immortal father had.

East policy and was not meant to
soften the criticism of Syria's
military actions in Lebanon
voiced by Secretary of State
Alexander Haig when he visited
Israel as part of his recent
Mideast tour. Haig had forcefully
condemned the "brutal" Syrian
shelling of Christian areas in
north Lebanon.
A White House spokesman
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that the cable was
nothing more than a normal
message sent by the President to
another head of state on. the
occasion of that country's
National Day of Independence.
Syria observed its Independence
Day last Thursday.
Reagan's cable noted the
"central role the Syrian people
and their leaders can play, not
only in the service of their own
nation and its independence but
in the search for a just Middle
vJast peace ..." It expressed
Reagan's strong hope that the
two countries could work
together during the next year in
search of "peace, justice and
security'' in the Middle East, the
White House said.

The degree will be conferred during a week of

Mondale has long been considered one of
Israel's best friends in American public life. The
former Vice President was a member of the
United States Senate from 1964 until 1977, v. hen
he was elected Vice Preident.
Senators Daniel P. Moynihan of New York and

stressed that the two prominent Senators were
being honored "for taking the initiative to correct
a major injustice in American society where the
costs for private education are not recognized."
Senators Moynihan and Packwood are spon-
soring a bill which, when it becomes fully ef-
fective, would grant a tax credit of up to $500, or
50 percent of the total education cost for students
in elementary and secondary schools, as well as in
colleges and graduate institutions.
Nathaniel Saperstein, president of the National
Council of Young Israel, has called for all Ortho-
dox organizations "to temporarily set aside their
differences in order to formulate a unified
strategy to counteract Reform and Conservative
attempts to gain official recognition in the Israeli
religious establishment."
Saperstein issued the call during his presi-
dential address to 1,200 participants at the
National Council of Young Israel dinner at the
Sheraton Centre in New York. He described the
prospect of the Reform and Conservative groups
gaining such recognitition as "a potential disaster
for the Jewish people and the religious com-
munity in Israel," and offered the facilities of the
National Council of Young Israel for the purposes
of a meeting of representatives of all Orthodox
groups to map a common strategy in response.

The British Tourist Authority has assured the
American Jewish Congress that it will not dis-
tribute a travel book describing a vacation in a
simulated Nazi prison camp until the publication
is altered to eliminate the information about the
bizarre holiday.
Responding to an A JCongress complaint about
Travel Authority distribution of the book, The
Alternative Holiday Catalogue, Sir Henry Mark-
ing, chairman of the Authority, apologized for the
"offense" caused by the camp entry and promised
to review the agency's use of the book, which de-
scribes off-beat vacations in Britain.
A spokesman for the Tourist Authority's U.S.
offices told Congress that the book was not being
distributed and that the publishers would have to
reprint it without description of the camp or agree
to have the information taken out of the book
before the Authority would distribute copies.
Shimon Peres, chairman of the Labor Party,
disclosed last week that Guinea asked to become
a protectorate of Israel in 1960. The matter was
kept secret until last week. The exact date of the
affair was not given, but the daily I la'are tz said it
took place when Peres was Deputy Defense
Minister in the Cabinet of Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion. Guinea had become independent in
1958, ahead of other French Colonies in West
Africa, and its relations with the former colonial
power had gone very chilly.
Guinean President Ahmed Sekon Toure then
sought another Protector Israel, Ila'aretz said.
Ben-Gurion was enthusiastic and sent a mission
to Guinea to study ways of linking the two
countries. But, Ila'aretz wrote, Golda Meir, then
Foreign Minister, took violent exception to the
idea, and it was quietly buried. ________

reported that a State Department
official said that Haig believes
that the Israelis "have a
legitimate complaint" about the
AWACS because the U.S. did not
tell them about it in advance.
That statement was made by
the official at a breakfast in-
terview with four State Depart-
ment reporters under ground
rules that did not permit the offi-
cial's name to be used. But John
Wallach, a Hearst reporter who
was one of the four, in his story
identified the official as Haig.
Meanwhile, Sen. Howard
Baker (R., Tenn.). the Senate
Majority leader, who has
returned from leading a delega-
tion on a visit to the Mideast,
said there are not enough votes in
the Senate to either approve or
reject the sale. The sale will be
rejected if both the Senate and
House vote against it within 50
days of official notification.
tion is especially strong over the
I AWACS, not only because of
concern that it might endanger
Israel's security, but also because
'of fear following the Iranian rev-
olution that placing the AWACS
in an unstable region might cause
one of the U.S most sophisticated
{weapons to fall into the hands of
Ithe Soviet Union.

in Congress to
SOME observers had claimed
the announcement would be
postponed until after Israel June
30 election reportedly since the
Administration did not want to
give Begin an election issue.
Yamani, in his Television in-
terview, said such a move would
be "interfering" In Israel's
election and would help Begin.
On "Meet the Press," Yamani
also called the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty a "dead end street."
He said that the Saudis agree
with the U.S. that the Soviet
Union is a threat to the Mideast
but consider the Israelis a "much
greater" threat because the "Is-
raelis are the entry of the Soviets
in the area."
Yamani also put a damper on
one of the Administration's
major reasons for pushing the
AWACS sale. The Pentagon
reportedly believes that the
AWACS will have to be manned
by Americans for the near future,
giving the U.S. an entry to-
stationing troops in Saudi
Arabia. "We think it will invite a
Russian presence in the area,"
Yamani said.
BUT YAMANI also stressed
in the interview a position that is
certain to be taken up by those
who believe the Saudis should get
the arms they want because of
the oil exports to the U.S.
He claimed that Saudi Arabia
was responsible for the present
glut in oil throughout the world
and declared that Saudi Arabia
vould not raise its prices or
reduce its production until other
members of the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries
(OPEC) lowered their prices.
When asked about the belief by
some American experts that oil
consumption is declining and
that from now on Arab oil power
will decline, Yamani replied that
is "wishful thinking."
Israel Expresses 'Regret,
Unreserved Opposition9
To Reagan's Decision
(JTA) The government
of Israel has expressed
"deep regret and
unreserved opposition" to
the Reagan Administra-
tion's decision to supply
Saudi Arabia with sophisti-
cated weapons and
AWACS intelligence
gathering planes. Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
met with U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis to convey Is-
rael's reaction. '
An official communique issued
here stated: "The supply of
sophisticated weaponry (to Saudi
Arabia) will undermine peace in
the Middle East and create a
grave danger to the security of
the State of Israel."
IT ALSO noted that Saudi
Arabia is known for its strong
opposition to the Camp David
accords, to peace with Israel and
to the recognition of Israel. The
communique pointed out that
Saudi Arabia provides massive
financial aid to "terrorist
organizations" and has called for
a jihad (holy war) against Israel.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman
refused to say whether" Israel
would mobilize its friends in Con-
gress to prevent the arms sale.
He said. "We hope all our
American friends will take our
position into consideration :
We will do all that we can as a
Svernment to prevent the sale
tm taking place."
The spokesman added that Is-
rael rejected American explana-
tions that conditions placed on
the sale of the AWACS reduce
the danger to Israel.
