nounced the Israel Air
Force raid on the Osirak

completion outside of
Reagan, interrupted in
his meetings over the week-
end with Mexico's Presi-
dent Jose Lopez Portillo,
approved the official state-
ment despite the fact that it
includes a threat to con-
tinued U.S. military aid to
Israel. Currently, this aid
amounts to more than $1
billion worth of arms
pledged in 1982.
THE NUB of the U.S. repudia-
tion of the raid is predicated on
the fact that the Israeli strike
was carried out by planes manu-
factured in the U.S., and which
were sold to Israel on the proviso
that they be used for defense pur-
poses only.
Israel insists that its bombing
of the Iraqi nuclear reactor was
defensive. More than a dozen
F16s and F15s were involved in
the Israeli action. Israeli pilots,
speaking only in Arabic, and
identifying themselves as Jor-
danians, flew over more than 60C
miles of Arab air space to reach
their target. They refueled in
midair at some point in their
1,200-mile roundtrip.

ment here, Department spokes-
man Dan Fischer declared, "The
United States condemns the re-
ported Israeli attack on Iraq.

tensions in the area.''

ployed in violation of U.S. law,
and a report to this effect is being
made to Congress."
U.S. intelligence sources
meanwhile confirmed that the
planes demolished the 70-mega-
watt reactor. At the same time,
the State Department empha-
sized that the United States
knew nothing about the raid until
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
telephoned U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis Sunday night in
Jerusalem to tell him about it.
That was only after all Israeli
planes had returned safely from
their mission.
In the face of mounting inter-
national furor over the raid.
Prime Minister Begin said over
Israeli radio Monday night, "We
are not afraid of any reaction by
the world ... We had to act to

being of the Israeli people and its

MitterandNot Likely
To Okay New N-PUmt
The new French ad-
ministration of President
Francois Mitterrand will
probably refuse to sign a
new contract for the re-
construction of the Iraqi
nuclear plant bombed
Sunday by Israeli planes.
Reliable French sources
said that "France will
deplore the attack but re-
fuse to renew either the
former contracts or the
actual work."
Before his election, Mitter-
rand said that, had he been in
power, France would not have
approved the Franco-Iraqi nu-
clear agreements signed under
President Valery Giscard
D'Estaing. Since Mitterrand's
election, May 10, leading mem-
bers of his idministration have
reiterated this view while
stressing, however, that France
will honor all of the previous ad-
ministration's contracts and
commitments. Many observers
here believe that the Israeli raid
has actually helped Mitterrand
out of a thorny situation.
France and Iraq were started in
1975 when the then French
Premier, Jacques Chirac, paid an
official visit to Baghdad. Chirac
and Iraq's "strong man,"
Saddam Hussein, agreed to ex-
change oil for nuclear know-how.
In 1976, the official agreement
providing for the construction of
the Osirak reactor was signed
and in 1980 an additional agree-
ment provided for French
delivery of 72 kilograms and 93
percent enriched uranium which
the French said was too poor to
be used for military purposes.

Israeli Jets Destroy Iraqi Nuclear Reactor
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli Air Force planes
attacked and completely destroyed the Iraqi nuclear
reactor nearing completion near Baghdad Sunday.
In an exceptional announcement during the
Shavuoth holiday at 4 p.m. (1400 GMIT), the Israel
government said the action had been ordered as it had
been learned from the "most authoritative and credible
sources" that the reactor was intended, despite Iraqi
denials, to produce nuclear bombs.
The announcement said that
the Iraqi President had himself
announced, after the reactor had
been slightly damaged by the
Iranians a year ago. that the
weapons it would produce would
be used only against Israel, and
the Iranians therefore had
nothing to fear.
ALL THE Israeli planes re-
turned safely to base after their
raid, the longest-ranged ever car-
ried out by Israeli aircraft, apart
from the Entebbe rescue
The government announce-
ment said the bombs to be
produced by the Osiriak reactor
near Baghdad would be made
from enriched uranium and
plutonium, the type used at
Hiroshima, and they therefore
endangered Israel's very
It continued by saying the
government had received two
dates for the probable completion
of the reactor construction, again
from the "most credible sources"
the beginning of the month of
July, or the beginning of Sep-
Action had to be taken to
destroy it now, as the reactor
would be active and "hot" in a
short while, and no Israeli Gov-
ernment could accept responsi-
bility for attacking a "hot" re-
actor. Such at attack would have
sent waves of radioactive
material over the city of Bagh-
dad, with serious consequences to
the country's innocent
said the government had
therefore waited patiently during
construction of the reactor for
the most propitious moment
before it became too late to
destroy it without danger to civi-
lians, the announcement noted
that the Iraqis, on the other
hand, were ready to drop atomic
bombs on Israel's civilian
The raid was planned for Sun-
day on the expectation that none
if any of the between 100 and 120
foreign experts working in its
construction would be on the site
on a Sunday. The assumption
was correct, and no foreign
experts were hurt in the raid, the
announcement said. (One French
technicians was killed in the
operation Ed.)
It added that "two European
countries" had agreed to help the
Iraqis build the reactor "in return
for oil." It did not name them but
appealed to them to stop their as-
sist ance in building reactors for
the destruction of human beings.
"Under no conditions will we
allow the enemy to produce such
inhuman weapons, the an-
nouncement said. "We shall
defend our people, in time and by
all the means at our disposal,"
the Israel Government an-
nouncement said.

When Will Our Leaders
Ever Learn?
We never get tired of talking about Jewish
organizations and the Noah's flood of awards they
give to non-Jewish personalities. We never get tired
because today's Jewish hero in the Gentile com-
munity is tomorrow's bum.
Remember Dorothy Thompson the darling of
th Zionist set who overnight turned anti-Israel,
anti-Zionist and allegedly anti-Semitic? The ex-
amples of this kind of metamorphosis are legion and,
one would think, of sufficient magnitude to warrant
greater caution on the part of Jewish organizations
who operate on the principle that things are far more
kosher on the other side of the fence.
Comes now Yeshiva University's planned award
to J. Peter Grace, the prominent industrialist, at a
Yeshiva dinner June 16 to honor Grace for his "out-
standing leadership in civic and humanitarian en-
deavors .'' The dinner is now canceled. Why?
Not much reason other than the fairly-well
documented allegations that Grace is connected with
one of the most notorious "desk murderers" of the
Holocaust, Otto Ambros, a director of the I. G.
Farben Chemical Co. during World War II. Farben
operated the slave labor concentration camp, Buna
Monowitz. Remember? (Sec our rtiftfttottMpMN^t
When will our Jewish leaders and organizations
ever learn?

Reagan Does It Again;
New Envoy's Taste in Question
There is nothing like a meshumud (a convert
from Judaism) when it comes to Jewish self-hatred
Such us the case with Robert Neumann, who is Presi-
dent Reagan's new appointee as U.S. Ambassador to
Saudi Arabia.
Neumann is careful to let everybody know that
he was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp in
1938 because he opposed Hitler the 65-year-old
Neumann was born in Vienna.
He is also careful to let everybody know that he
is not Jewish. He puts it this way: "A great majority
opposing the Nazis in my time were not Jewish.''
There would be nothing wrong with it if he were
assumed Jewish, Neumann recently told an inter-
viewer. Still, reports the interviewer, Neumann re-
peatedly makes the point that he is not.
But the fact is that Neumann was born Jewish
and converted to Catholicism at age 17, which is cer-
tainly his privilege. But how about the fact that, as
vice chairman of Georgetown University's pres-
tigious Center for Strategic and International
Studies, Neumann long called for the U.S. to open a
dialogue with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
"Palestine," he has said, "is the core problem" in re-
solving the Arab-Israeli dispute.
What is more, how about President Reagan's
appointing such an "objective'' soul as Neumann to
be this nation's envoy to Saudi Arabia, whose king
recently called for a jihad (holy war) against Israel?
Coming on the heels of the President's contro-
versial nomination of Ernest Lefever as Assistant
Secretary of State for Humanitarian Affairs, the
appointment of Neumann seems to be of the same
ilk. Lefever, among other things, has been accused of
allegedly believing that Blacks are intellectually in-
ferior by their genetic nature a thought for the
Guinness Book of Records for a human rights ad-

Saudi-Soviet Accord Why?
REPORTS of a renewed
alliance between Saudi Arabia
and the Soviet Union make little
sense on their face. Second
thoughts put the reports into two
categories of possibility. The first
would see such a resumption in
diplomatic arrangement in much
the same way as history teaches
us to view the pre-World War II
accord between Hitler Germany
and Josef Stalin's Kremlin:
1) A desperate scrambling for
time by the Saudis to shore up
their crumbling imperial regime
before, like Iran's, it falls prey to
internecine struggle betweeen
political and religious extremism;
2> A daring ploy on the part of
the Russians to return to the
Middle East arena in force, until.
now dominated by the United
States, even if through some un-
likely a back door as the royal
house of Saud. In this scenario,
the Saudis respond seductively.
THE SECOND category
suggests that the Saudis are
attempting to put the squeeze on
Washington, particularly in
terms of the AWACS sale to
them, which is meeting stronB
opposition m the Congress but
which is also causing anerv
counter-offensive action in the
form of threatening Ad-
ministration warnings to the
American Jewish commuity and
the Government of Israel to
abandon their orchestrated
criticism of the sale.
There is nothing like the
potency of reports of a renewed
Soviet-Saudi alliance to give the
Administration and the Saudis
whatever they want the
Congress, the American Jewish
community and Israel be
As of this writing, it is still too
early to tell which of these two
categories of possibility is
correct, or even if both are wrong.
Thus far, it can only be a matter
of educated speculation but, if in
the end, the reports are veitftd
as true, we are all of us in for a
heap of trouble. For both pos-
sibilities are clearly linked, and
cither one will show the real ex-
tent of the weakness of Saudi
Arabia and the collateral ab-
surdity of the U.S. effort to cast
King Khalid in the role of reliable
and effective military ally. As for
the Russians, there is no limit to
the mischievousness they can
make wherever they are invited
A MORE "optimistic" view
would be to focus on the second
possibility suggested here in
terms of raw power. If the news
reports have been orchestrated to
manipulate American' public
opinion toward an underwriting
of the Reagan Administration's
decision to sell the Saudis a wide
range of strategic weapons, in-
cluding the AWACS, what is the
purpose of the orchestration
licyond the sale itself?
The answer is more than an act
of successful Saudi manipulation

Moshe Dayan spoke into the mi-

signal was launched on an

ascended to the roof of the studio
and from there was beamed by
microwave to the ground station

team from ABC's "Issues and

it was a little different from
luiidivds of other similar broad-
casts which take place regularly
from the House of Magic, better
known as the Herzliya Studios.
When M argot Klausner
founded the Studios in 1948 for
the production of films, this at a
time when the guns of the War of
Liberation had not yet been
silenced, people thought she was
crazy. Since then the Studios
have produced well over a thou-
sand feature films, and countless
thousands of documentaries and
television program.
WHEN SHE later borrowed to
the hilt, and put $500,000 into
linking her Studios with the
Western world through Comra-
I he Communications Satel-
:i friends thought she had
had a mental breakdown. The
value of such a connection in this
age of electronic media no longer
needs explanation.
Mrs. Klausner died a few years
ago. but her aggressive and
creative general manager. Yit-
zhak Kol. became president of the
company, and carries on. The

owned by the son and daughter of
the founder.

for lack of competition. F.ven if
someone else gets the franchise,
they'll have to come to Herzliya
to use its facilities, just as Israel
TV does.
It is not merely a figure of

The tax laws provide a means
In which a taxpayer, without
/presently" giving away any-
thing, may obtain a current
income tax charitable deduction
and ultimately benefit a chari-
table organization. This objective
may be accomplished without the
necessity of setting up a trust,
with little or no cost in making
the gift and without depleting the
size of the estate that passes from
spouse to spouse (in a very real
sense it may increase the amount
of the estate that passes tax free
to a surviving spouse). There is
no magic or slight-of-hand in-
volved here is how it works.
A person may give away a "re-
mainder" interest in a personal
residence or farm. This, in effect,
is a contribution of the absolute
ownership of a personal residence
or farm which takes effect at
some time in the future.
Although the right to ownership
is vested in the present, the
actual right to possession of the
property by the Charitable
Organization does not occur until
some time in the future, i.e., on a
certain date or on the occurrence
of an event such as, the death of
the donor or his survivor.
Therefore, Sam and Sarah Do-
norwitz, since they own their
personal residence jointly, could
execute a deed transferring their
personal residence to Sam for life
and on his death to Sarah for her
life, remainder to the TOP Jewish
Foundation for the benefit of
their Federation. What are the
advantages of making such a
Gift of Future "Remainder"
Interest provides donor with
income tax charitable deduction
in year he executes and records
the deed (makes the gift).
Amount of deduction based on
act uarially calculated value of re-
mainder interest ultimately
passing to charity.
Because donor and spouse
retain a "life estate" in the
personal residence, they have the
absolute right to the use, oc-
cupation and enjoyment of their
personal residence until surviv-
ing spouse is deceased.
Value of personal residence
will be included in donor's gross
estate for estate tax purposes.
However, such value if offset by
an estate tax charitable
deduction. Effect of including
value of personal residence in
estate will increase the size of the
marital deduction (amount of
estate passing tax free to sur-
viving spouse).
Overall result will be a current
income tax Charitable Deduction,
decrease in estate tax liability
and an increase in the estate
passing tax free to surviving
This mode of making an en-
dowment gift can be utilized suc-
cessfully by almost anyone. It
may be particularly suited for a
widow or widower who does not
want to part with securities or
cash, but desires to make a life-
time gift to secure a present
income tax deduction. Also, a
married couple whose children
are grown and on their own would
benefit from making such a gift.
In order to take advantage of
making this type of endowment
gift there are several important
points to keep in mind. It is only
the "personal residence" or
"farm" of the donor that qualifies
for this special tax treatment. (A
Commercial Property or vacant
lot would not qualify). A
"Personal Residence" is defined
under the Internal Revenue Code
as "Any property used by the
taxpayer as his personal resi-
dence, even though it may not be
his principal residence." In
typical hyperbolic fashion the
Code says personal residence
means personal residence. A
"farm" has been defined in the
Code as "Any land, along with its
improvements, that is used by a
taxpayer (or his tenant) for the
production of crops, fruits or
other agricultural products or for
the sustenance of livestock."
Thus, it can be seen that an
Orange Grove used for produc-
tion of oranges would qualify as a
"farm". "Personal residence" has
l>een interpreted to include a va-
cation home used bv the tax-

payer, as well as stock owner by a
taxpayer as a tenant-stockholder
in a co-operative housing corpo-
ration, if such dwelling is oc-
cupied by the taxpayer as a
personal residence. The
definitions, as they have been in-
terpreted, are quite flexible. Such
an endowment gift might be ideal
for the retired couple who
maintain both a personal resi-
dence in Florida and a personal
residence up north. Either or
both of the properties would
qualify under the definition of
"personal residence."
The second point to remember
is that the amount of the deduc-
tion that is allowable must take
into consideration the value of
the personal residence or farm
property. Thus, the donor must
get an appraisal of his personal
residence or farm property to de-
termine the fajr market value of
the property at the time the gift
is made and this figure would
then be reduced using calcula-
tions prescribed by law.
Obviously, the shorter the wait-
ing period until the charitable
organization would come into full
possession of the property, tna
larger the income tax charitable
Using this method to make an
endowment gift, a person of
modest means, who does not need
to have his personal residence or
farm sold at the time of his death
to provide cash flow for his
family, can become a Jewish
Philanthropist As in any tax
planning matter, however, a
donor should consult his legal

Jews of Hungary: The Limits of Freedom
/Editor's note: The author re-
cently returned from a trip to
Hungary, Austria, and Israel
that was co-sponsored by the
American Jewish Press Ass'n.
and the UJA.)
garian Jews are justifiably proud
of their freedom of religion, which
is considerably greater than in
most other communist bloc coun-
tries Judaism has the same
official standing in Hungary as
01 her religions. The Jewish com-
munity has 117 synagogues and
28 raobis. Budapest's Jewish
Theological Seminary is the only
rabbinical seminary in commu-
nist Europe, and provides train-
ing to Soviet. Bulgarian, and
Czech as well as Hungarian
students The Hungarian Matzah
Factory and kosher winery serve
both the domestic and export
But it doesn't take long for the
\ isitor to learn that in Hungary
one just does not talk about any-
thing Jewish that is not directly
connected with synagogue life.
The list of prohibited topics
includes: Zionism, organized
Jewish youth activity, assimila-
tion, emigration, and the propor-
tion of people under age forty in
the Jewish population.
For our group of visiting
American journalists it was a
frustrating situation. Constantly
escorted by three representatives
of the state-authorized Central
Board of Hungarian Jewry
(MIOK). we were kept busy all
day every day for a week, touring
Jewish institutions. We were
rarely given the opportunity to
speak to anyone outside the
official leadership, and almost
never privately. It was impossi-
ble to verify the picture of a
thriving Jewish community that
our hosts were so anxious to im-
press us with.
Our group of Jewish journal-
ists arrived in Hungary on Mon-
day noon By two o'clock we were
being feted by our hosts in the
deluxe Intercontinental Hotel.
This was the first of a seemingly
endless series of eleborate meals,
each replete with aperitif,
goulash soup, wine, and Hungar-
ian pastry. We must have eaten
in every fancy tourist hotel in
Budapest with hardly a Hun-
garian Jew in sight, outside of
our hosts from MIOK.
The trip was arranged with the
help of the Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC). the interna-
tional agency responsible for
aiding Jewish communities
abroad. JDC and MIOK signed a
tripartite agreement last year
with the Hungarian government,
under which JDC provides finan-
cial support for Hungarian
Jewish relief and welfare activ-
ities. This opening of a major
official channel of communication
with Western Jews is important
not only for the Hungarian
Jewish community, but also to
the Hungarian government,
which would like to expand its
trade with the West. (Currently
Hungary's international trade is
evenly balanced between the
West and the Soviet bloc.)
As an American Jew, I
wondered whether Americans
might be able to use Hungary's
eagerness for Western trade as a
lever to help maximize Hungar-
ian Jewry's freedom of religious,
cultural, and ethnic expression. I
had hoped I could find out what
were the aspects of Hungarian
Jewish life that needed improve-
ment, and that I would be able to
communicate these needs to the
American Jewish reading public.
Instead, our group was actively
discouraged from dwelling on po-
tentially sensitive areas.
We were told that anything we
wrote that reflected poorly on tht
life of Hungary's Jews would in-
evitably reflect poorly on the
leadership of MIOK. and could
potentially harm the Jewish com-
munity. Almost no one was wil-
ling to risk jeopardizing the
state's relative permissiveness in
religious affairs or their own
personal positions by talking
about delicate issues certainly
never on the record. When asked
what were the three main
problems facing Hungary's Jews.
Dr Michael Borsa. who heads the
local Committee for Social Assi-
stance, replied. "I'd rather deal
with questions relating to
program. I don't want to talk
about politics."
On another occasion. I asked
Rabbi Lasslo Szalgo. Chief Rabbi
of Hungary as well as the Jewish
representative in Parliament, if
Hungarian Jewry had problems
with assimilation and in-
termarriage. "Yes." he said, "es-
pedaHy many young Jewish girls
marry non-Jewish men." "Do
you have any programs to
combat this trend?" I asked.
"No. no. no!" he vehemently
In fact, the state organizes its
own youth clubs, thus making it
expressly impossible for the
Jewish community to sponsor
competing activities.
Partly because of this type of
restriction, most Joint Distribu-
tion Committee programs are di-
rected towards the needs of the
elderly, all of whom are Holo-
caust survivors. "We are helping
an entire generation to die in
dignity and comfort." points out
Michael Schneider. Director of
the JDC program in Hungary.
$37,000 of' the JDC's million
dollar budget in Hungary in 1981
goes toward religious supplies,
educational equipment, and en-
largement of the existing kinder
garten. Most of the remainder is
going toward cash and clothing
assistance to the elderly, old age
homes, and a kosher kitchen
which provides meals for the ill
and the needy. The JDC's intent
is to free MIOK's other monies
for education, religion, and provi-
sion of services. The JDC
disclaims programmatic
responsibility. "We need to es-
tablish ourselves as a non-
interventionist force." says
Schneider. "We need to show
that we wont interfere in internal
political matters."
The actual size of the Jewish
population of Hungary is unclear.
MIOK uses the statistic 100.000;
the JDC uses 80.000. It seems
likely that both of these figures
are too large. The last survey of
the Hungarian Jewish com-
munity was taken shortly after
World War II. At that time, it
was found that 200.000 Jews (of a
pre-Holocaust community of
750,000) had survived the war.
Half the survivors chose to start
a new life elsewhere. If the Hun-
garian Jewish Board's figure of
100,000 were correct, it would
mean that the Jewish population
did not diminish at all in the past
33 years. This is true of none of
the Holocaust-ravaged communi-
ties of Eastern Europe, all of
which suffer from disproportion-
ately large elderly populations, as
well as from assimilation and, in
some cases, emigration.
When I asked one Hungarian if
he thought the 80.000 100.000
figure was correct, he replied only
that "in Hungary a quartet has
five members."
Other statistics are equally
hard to come by. Although
MIOK provides the funding,
none of our hosts seemed to know
how many Talmud Torahs there
were in Budapest or how many
students study in them. The
statistics we did gather were
gleaned by accident. For
example. Rabbi Szalgo mention-
ed at one point that the mohel
performs approximately one
circumcision per week: later he
mentioned that there is about one
Jewish wedding a week.
The Jewish Art Museum in
Budapest, built on the very
corner where Theodore Herzl was
born, is filled to overflowing with
books and religious objects, the
remnants of the wealth of pre-
Holocaust Hungarian Jewish
culture. The concentration camp
uniform which hangs in the same
museum, the old-ge homes filled
with family-less Holocaust
survivors, and the memorial
plaques listing tens of thousands
of Holocaust victims are grim re-
minders that even Hungarian
Jew over 40 is a Holocaust
For me. the most poignant
memorial of the former greatness
of the Hungarian Jewish commu-
nity appears on the surface to be
I he greatest source of hope for
the future the Budapest
Jewish Theological Seminary. It
ia one ot the most public signs of
the relative tolerance of religion
in Hungary.
Our group visited the Semi-
nary on Friday night. Before
services started, Dr. Alexander
Scheiber. the Seminary's Chan-
cellor end an internationally
respected scholar, took us on a
tour of the library. The library
had been hit by a bomb during
the war and all but two shelves of
books were destroyed. He showed
us those books, their bindings
cracked and their pages warped
and moldy from exposure to cold
and damp. Today the library
contains 120.000 volumes, the
books of those who didn't return.
It was at the Seminary services
that we saw, for the first and only
time, a large number of young
Jews. The sanctuary was filled to
capacity with about 200 people,
perhaps half of whom were under
forty. After the service, the con-

BONN icientists and Jewish community
leaders have expressed concern
wer the lack of effective
measures by West German
authorities to deal with the
resurgence of neo-Nazi activities,
particularly among the youth.
While the authorities are aware of
the phenomenon, they seem to be
blind to its political implications,
according to speakers at a
m minar on the subject organized
l>\ the ruling Social Democratic
Party (SPD).
One example noted was the
failure to register the far right-
wing National Democratic Party
(NPDI as a neo-Nazi or-
ganization. Heinz Galinski.
i liuinnan of the West Berlin Jew-
ish community, took the legis-
lators to task for failing to correct
i hi present situation whereby
only the relatives of death camp
victims can sue neo-Nazis who
spread propaganda that the
Holocaust never occured. "This
cannot be tolerated. We have to
see to il that the State pros-
i, u(ion initiates such cases,"
(iulinski said.
Juergen Schmude agreed that
existing laws must be tightened
to curb neo-Nazi propaganda or
new laws introduced. He said the
government has taken initiatives
in that direction. Peter Glotz.

Mr. and Mrs. Philip Kline and

Jennifer Rosenblatt.
Morry Seidel served as Best
Man. Groomsmen were Bobby
Seidel, Danny Seidel, Kenn
Spiess. and Bruce Ramo.
The wedding reception was
field at the Tampa Womens Club.
After a honeymoon trip to
Toronto, Canada, the couple will
ic in Tampa.
Secretary General of the SPD
said more attention should be
paid to the neo-Nazi phe-
Much of the seminar was de-
voted to discussion by experts of
recent public opinion polls which

Schmidt Says
Bonn's Attitude
Not Changed
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt of
West Germany is maintaining
that he agreed with the Arab
view that if the West alienates
the Palestinians, it drives them
towards the Soviet Union. At the
same time, Schmidt is stressing
that West Germany's attitude
toward the Palestine Liberation
Organization depends on the
PLO recognizing Israel's right to
"The Arab leaders and I
share the view that the more the
West alienates the Palestinians,
the more will they be drawn
toward the Soviet Union," Sch-
midt said in a speech to the Na-
tionul Press Club. He said that on
his visits to Saudi Arabia and the
United Arab Emirates, he found
that the leaders of those coun-
tries "fear that the smouldering
Israeli-Arab crisis could offer the
Soviet Union further op-
portunities for interference in the
SCHMIDT repeated what he
had said in Riyadh about his
government's position on the
PLO. "Our German attitude
toward the PLO will be deter-
mined by the position which the
PLO adops regarding the right
to which the State of Israel, too,
is entitled to live within secure
and recognized frontiers," he
The West German policy in the
Middle East was the subject of
discussion between Schmidt and
a seven-member delegation of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations. After the meeting at
views characterized by
toward foreign groups.
Social scientists said that by
their nature, those views could be
classified as neo-Nazi. But they
disagreed as to whether the re-
surgence of neo-Nazi ideas was
caused by economic decline and
unemployment or reflected other
factors. The pollsters who
conducted the survey on behalf of
the government said the results
did not indicate a definite re-
lationship between unemploy-
ment and extreme rightwing
MEANWHILE, another
debate is underway on the anti-
Semitic or anti-Israel bias among
certain leftwing groups in the
Federal Republic. It was
triggered two months ago when a
young German Jew, Henryk
Broder, immigrated to Israel. He
left a letter to his former leftwing and Sandy Roth,
friends protesting their anti-Is-
rael views, which was published
in the weeky Die Zelt.
In an interview published later
in Der Spiegel, Broder attacked
the Middle East policies of
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
Both weeklies were flooded
with letters supporting or re-
pudiating Broder's charges
against West German society.

Blair House, Howard Squadron,
the Presidents Conference chair-
man, said he was "still somewhat
concerned about the position that
Germany and the rest of the
European nations have taken
with respect to the European ini-
tiative" and also about the
abstention by the Europeans at
the United Nations and its spe-
cialized agencies, presumably on
anti-Israel resolutions.
At the same time, Squadron
said Schmidt had assured the
Jewish leaders that there was "no
change" in West Germany's long
commitment to Israel and to the
Jewish people and to Schmidt s
belief that West Germany "has a
special responsibility to the Jew-
ish people."

Conference on Voluntarism and Resettlement
NEW YORK More than 70
lay and professional people from
25 communities across the U.S.
and Canada attended the recent
Washington. D.C. Conference on
Voluntarism and Resettlement
sponsored by the Council of Jew-
ish Federations, in cooperation
with the United Jewish Appeal of
Greater Washington, the
National Council of Jewish
Women and the National Center
for Citizen Involvement.
The high attendance confirms
the growing importance of
voluntarism in Jewish agencies,
according to Conference
In addition, the positive feed-
back from the participants has
indicated the acceptance of new
directions in the management of
resettlement programs, said a
Conference spokesman. "There
was a general openness expressed
to the idea of continuously ad-
vancing the level of professional-
ism in volunteer programs
through regional and local train-
ing programs. This can be ac-
complished on a relatively small
scale using local resources," he
The two-day conference, which
featured speakers and facilitators
from Federations, Jewish family
services, Jewish community
centers and Jewish vocational
programs, introduced basic con-
cepts in volunteer management.
Workshops dealt with such areas
as the Soviet Jewish Volunteer.
Community Relations and the
Federation's Role in Volunteer
Program Planning and Co-
Keynote speaker Joel Carp,
Director of Grants and Special
Programs at the Jewish Federa-
tion of Metropolitan Chicago, set
the tone of the Conference by
noting that:
"... some professionals still
have many reservations about
using volunteers. While we have
come a long, long way there are
stiM those who do not understand
that volunteers are interviewed
and screened, hired, trained and
supervised around specific jobs
or tasks, evaluated and even fired
if they do not work out. Further,
an appropriate process of quali-
tative training is important."
Other speakers and facilitators '
included: Stephen McCurley of
the National Center for Citizen
Involvement; Roberta Stim,
National Council of Jewish
Women; Chaim Lauer, Social
Planning Director of UJA

We recently heard that two seventeen year olds were be-
stowed with some outstanding honors and would like to tell you
about them. Andrew Osiason. son of Lorna and Burt Osiaaon
was elected to the "Gold and Black" at Plant High School. This
is an honors club whose members are selected not only for aca-
demies but also for their outstanding contributions to sports
and for their club involvement. In addition, Andrew was elected
President of Mu Alpha Theta, which is the math honor society
and treasurer of National Honor Society. Our second youth who
we want to boast about is Amy Cherry, daughter of Carol and
Charles Cherry. She too was elected to the honors club "Gold
and Black" at Plant High School. In addition, she was recently
elected head cheerleader for the coming year. We are so proud of
both of you and think your achievements are simply terrific!
Lois Kerben and Barbara Muratori recently began a
business called "Photo Security Service" and we would like to
tell you a little about it. Both avid photographers, these women
come to your home and-or office and will photograph a detailed
inventory of all your possessions. They enable you to have a
complete record of everything in your home, drawers, closets,
garage, file cabinets, etc.. This is a marvelous idea to insure
against lost (and inadequate recovery) from theft or fire. As Lois
said, "It is so difficult to remember what you have during!
traumatic time whether it is a priceless antique or jewelry that
you* have lost or just how many pairs of shoes you have!" The
girls decided to venture into this unique business after Lois'
aunt experienced an apartment fire and then had such a difficult
time dealing with the insurance company because of the diffi-
culty in remembering what she had and where. The owners keep
all slides, records, and a letter of certification after "Photo
Security Service" takes the pictures. They stress the point that
everything is completely confidential.
Our best wishes to four hard working, enthusiastic, and
dedicated members of our community who have recently been
nominated to join the board of Tampa Jewish Social Service-
Congratulations to Nancy Verkauf, Barbara Goldstein. Audrey
Haubenstock, and Jeremy Gluckman. You couldn't be givingof
yourself in a more worthwhile way.

150,000 Stage Solidarity
Show for Soviet Jews
About 150,000 people,
according to police esti-
mates, gathered at Dag
Hamtaarskjold Plaza,
across from the United Na-
tions, for the tenth annual
rally for Solidarity Sunday
for Soviet Jewry.
The marcher paraded for ten
blocks down Fifth Avenue in
Manhattan, led by a group wear-
ing prison uniforms to represent
Jewish Prisoners of Conscience in
Soviet prisons and labor camps.
They carried pictures of Soviet
prisoners Anatoly Sharansky,
Vladimir Kislik. Kim Fridman
and those of many others jailed.
Security Adviser at the White
Mouse, was greeted with
boisterous chants of "No arms to
Saudi Arabia." Allen said that
the United States' "deter-
mination to oppose terrorism in
no way contradicts our support
for human rights." This state-
ment was greeted with more
Allen stressed that the foreign
policy of the U.S. is essentially
linked to human rights. Dr. Sey-
mour Lachman, chairman of the
Greater New York Conference on
Soviet Jewry, said Allen's ap-
pearance was the highest Presi-
dential representative sent to a
gathering of this kind. Lachman
also said that "this is the biggest
demonstration for Soviet Jewry"

Actress Jane Fonda, in what
was believed to be her first ap-
pearance at a rally for Soviet
Jews, said that Ida Nudel, now
serving a prison term on
trumped-up charges of hooligan-
ism, had been convicted for
"fighting for the right of Jews to
GOV. CAREY of New York
said that "we will not avert
our eyes or lower our voices or
lessen our concern" for the rights
of Soviet Jewry. "To do so would
be not only to betray Soviet Jew-
ry or Israel or our allies, it would
be to betray ourselves."
He also said "the Soviet Union
is put on notice that its violations
of human rights, abrogation of
international law. its in-
timidation of other nations and
its disregard for the dignity of
the individual, leave it outside
the pale of civilized nations.
Iosef Mendelevich, who was
released recently from a Soviet
prison and settled in Israel,
received from Mayor Edward
Koch the key to the city he was
'recently awarded. Mendelevich
told the crowd "because of your
prayers and hard work, I was
finally able to leave the Soviet
Union and to resume the practice
of my Jewish faith without fear of
persecution." Fonda, Carey and
Mendelevich were enthusiastical-
ly applauded at the rally.
MAYOR KOCH announced
that a street would be named for
Sharansky "to serve as a re-
minder of the persecution of men
and women" who battled for
Near the close of the rally,
some 20 members of the Jewish
Defense League demonstrated on
Fifth Avenue in front of the office
of Aeroflot, the Soviet airline. A
bottle was thrown at the window
which was apparently shatter-
proof. Nothing happended to the
window, but the bottle broke.

Terrorists Conduct Global
Campaign Against Freedom
Right-wing and left-wing
terrorists are conducting a
global campaign against
the same targets western
democracies, Israel and
Jews and, in some cases,
have joined forces in that
campaign, according to a
study reported by Maxwell
Greenberg, chairman of the
Anti-Defamation League
B'nai B'rith. He said Israel
was a primary target for
Greenberg told the ADL Na-
tional Commission at its meeting
here that terrorist violence in
Europe in 1980 and the recent
assassination attempt against
Pope John Paul II gave new
urgency to exposing and taking
action against the international
terrorist networks.
THE ADL study described
neo-Nazi and fascist terrorists
and propagandists as a "black"
network and used the term "red"
network for such groups as the
West German Baader Meinhoff
Gang, the Italian Red Brigades,
the Japanese, and other Soviet-
oriented and sponsored groups,
like the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization, which the study said,
operates with Soviet arms and
Greenberg said "the ideo-
logical glue that binds the red'
and 'black' terrorists is "the
shared commitment" to destroy

Thatcher Nixes Carrington-Araf at Meeting
From JTA Services ,
LONDON Mrs. Margaret
Thatcher, the British Prime Min-
ister, is believed to have asked
her Foreign Secretary, Lord
Carrington, not to meet PLO
Leader Yasir Arafat this summer
despite recent declarations by
herself and by Carrington that
such a meeting might be in-
Although a meeting is still
possible toward the end of the
year, it would be in a wider
framework, and other European
and Arab leaders would be
The reason is that such a meet-
ing could embarrass the govern-
ment at a time when it is under
growing international pressure to
accord political status to the pro-
visional Irish Republican Army.
The Prime Minister has emerged
as the toughest opponent of con-
cessions to the IRA. The argu-
ments she has been using would
make her vulnerable to ac-
cusations of inconsistency if
Carrington were seen consorting
with Arafat while she prohibits
concessions to IRA hunger
Foreign Minister Claude Cheys-
son ended his first visit with the
Reagan Administration here by
stressing that the government of
President Francois Mitterrand
can play a "useful" role in the
Middle East because of its
friendship with both Israel and
the Arab States.
"We are in a dialogue and we
want to be constant dialogue
with all," he told a press confer-
ence at the French Embassy
Saturday after concluding three
days of talks with President
Reagan, Secretary of State
Alexander Haig and other mem-
bers of the Administration.
MONTREAL The Attorney
General's special deputy in
British Columbia is "in-
vestigating" the first public cross
burning by the Ku Klux Klan in
that province since the 1930s. It
took place on a remote beach near
Mission, B.C., attended by about
50 Klan members who offered "a
prayer of thanks to God" for
making them white and "superior
The Canadian Jewish Congress
Pacific Region has regularly
called attention of the authorities
to KKK activities on Canada's
west coast. The cross-burners
were reportedly led by a 20-year-
old woman who identified herself
as Ann Farmer and claimed to be
the Grand Chaplain of the Klan.
She said she was the girl friend
of a former BC Klan leader known
as George who is now in prison
facing charges for leading a gang
of mercenaries in an attempted
coup on the Island of Dominica in
the West Indies.
TEL AVIV The influential
Haaretz newspaper said the
defense establishment has
decided, after months of consid-
eration, to equip its latest gene-
ration Lavie-fighter plane, now
still in the planning stage, with
American-made Pratt and Whit-
ney FV-1120 engines.
Earlier planning had called for
the use of General Electric F-404
engines. i
The Pratt and Whitney engine
is more expensive but also larger
and more powerful. The design of
the La vie body may thus have to
be altered now to allow for the
larger engine, making the aircraft
bigger but of a considerably
higher performance.
Both American companies
were invited to bid for the plane's
power plant, and both undertook
to order work from Israeli factor-
ies in return for obtaining the
BRUSSELS The Israeli em-
bassy has flatly denied an allega-
tion, by the local office of the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization
that the Israeli Secret Service
was involved in the murder of the
PLO'S representative in Brus-
sels, Nairn Khader.
Khader, 41, was shot five times
by a tone gunman as he was
walking from his home to this
the embassy, retorting to the
PLO charge, suggested that
Khader was the target of a rival
Palestinian organization. "We
know that the different Palestin-
ian movements kill each other,"
an Embassy statement said.
It noted that two Jordanians of
Palestinian origin were recently
tried and convicted by a Paris
Court for the murder of a PLO
official, Ezzedine Kallak, in
August, 1978.
