to force this commit-
ment as a matter of coalition
discipline, we urge the leaders of
the State of Israel to reject this
demand as threatening a
dangerous schism in worldwide
Jewish unity, which is a precon-
dition for Israeli survival.
The proposed amendment
would disqualify under Israeli
law conversions performed under
non-Orthodox auspices anywhere
in the world, including our own
North American communities. It
would constitute unacceptable
intervention into the affairs of
Diaspora Jewry, and place the
Jewish state in the untenable
position of denying the authen-
ticity and legitimacy of major re-
ligious movements which encom-
pass two-thirds of the world's
synagogue-affiliated Jewry.
This issue transcends Israeli
politics because it tears at the

has been exercised without

Jewry, nor for its impact in de-

The State of Israel is the

Reagan Asked to Lead
Ouster Move of Waldheim
(JTA) Three members of
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee have written to
President Reagan urging
the United States to ini-
tiate a move to find a "suit-
able replacement" for
United Nations Secretary
General Kurt Walheim
when his term expires at
the end of this year.
"Serious questions have been
raised about Mr. Waldheim's
performance of his duties both as
an administrator and, more im-
portant, as the diplomat charged

BOLARZ, in a separate state-
ment, charged thai Waldheim

Arabs, communists and other
Third World countries at the
world organization through his
consistent and totally gratuitous
criticism of the State of Israel."
Solar/ also accused Waldheim
of being "notoriously one-sided in
his approach to the Middle East,
engaging in gratuitous criticism
of Israel and encouraging the
participation of the terrorist Pal-
estine Liberation Organization in
the Middle East negotiations."
He noted that Waldheim
"chose to remain silent" when
the General Assembly passed the
resolution equating Zionism with
racism in 1975 and that he has
called for Palestinian statehood
and asked that Israel withdraw
from occupied territory, includ-
ing East Jerusalem.

Jewish Leaders Statement Opposing Law of Return
NEW YORK The leaders of
Conservative. Reform, and Re-
construct lonist Judaism have
issued a )oint statement (text
attached) explaining their op-
position to any change in Israel's
Law of Return. The statement
which was cabled this week to
Prime Minister Menachem Be-
gin. President Yitzhak Navon.
and Knesset members Shimon
Peres and Simcha Ehrlich. was
formulated at a meeting called on
Monday. (July 131 by Dr. Gerson
D. Cohen. Chancellor of The
Jewish Theological Seminary of
At issue was a proposed
amendment to the Law of Re-
turn. Some of the minority
parties had stipulated that their
participation in a new coalition
would depend upon government
endorsement of this change. The
Law of Return grants citizenship
upon immigration to Israel to all
Jews The amendment would
have limited recognition under
the law to those who were born
Jews, those who had been con-
verted according to the Halakhah
(Jewish law), and those who had
not converted to another faith.
Since many conversions out-
side the State of Israel are per-
formed by non-Orthodox rabbis,
representing movements whose
combined membership comprises
approximately two-thirds of the
synagogue-affiliated Jews in
North America, this limitation
was characterized by those at the
meeting as an affront to world |
Jewry." In the words of thei
statement, the amendment to the
Law of Return "would constitute
an unacceptable intervention into
the affairs of Diaspora Jewry. It
would "place the Jewish state in
the untenable position of denying
the authenticity and legitimacy
of major religious movements."
Further. Dr Cohen added. It
would in effect enact into law the
practice of the Israeli rabbinate
of disqualifying conversions
even those performed according
to Halakhah simply because
they had been performed by non
Orthodox rabbis."
Representatives at the meeting
voiced their concern for the wel-
fare of the State of Israel, and
characterized this attempt to use
political power to control the
definition of Jewish identity out-
side the State as a threat to the
Slate itself It might, according
to the text, "destroy Israel's
democratic image" in the western
world. Further, it would
diminish the appeal of altyah.
and defeat our led. Note: non-
Orthodox institutions) efforts to
stimulate a flow of western olim."
Dr. Cohen emphasized the reli-
gious significance of Jewish
unity. "The concept of Jewish
peoplehood." he said, "is one of
the pillars of our faith Since
1948, it has found expression in
the close ties linking the State of
Israel to the People of Israel,
wherever they may live. This re-
lationship has been evidenced by
the inspiration and pride which
Israel has provided to Diaspora
feels privileged to extend to the
Jewish state.
"Our uncompromising opposi-
tion to the proposed change in
the Law of Return." said Dr.
Cohen, "will in no way affect our
commitment to Israel, or our
continuing financial support to
the State. It would indeed be
tragic."' he concluded, "if this
nurturing relationship should be
damaged in any way. Especially
tragic would be to have Israel,
long the major unifying force in
Jewish life, become an agencv for
fomenting divisiveness among
the Jewish people.
While the meeting was in ses-
sion, a phone call to Dr. Cohen
brought advance word that
Prune Minister Begin would
reject the proposed amendment
as a precondition for forming a
coalition, followed immediately
by a report that Agudat Israel's
Council of Torah Sages had ruled
that the amendment need not be
a barrier to Aguda's entering the
coalition. These reports have
since been confirmed. The men
and women gathered at the
meeting immediately sent a cable
to Prime Minister Begin, congra-
tulating him on resisting the
pressures to which he had been
subjected. However, they agreed
to proceed with the formulation
of the joint statement, and to
transmit it to Israel as originally
planned The consensus, as sum-
marized by Dr. Cohen, was that it
was important to record the con-
viclion of those present that
there is more than one approach
to Jewish commitment, and that
the State should not attempt to
control varying authentic and
legitimate expression of Judaism,
on this or any future issue
In addition to the religious
leaders who signed the statement
on behalf of their respective
organizations (list attached), the
meeting was attended by repre-
sentatives of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. the American Jewish
Committee, the American Jewish
Congress, the Council of Jewish
Federations, and several other
national Jewish organizations.
There was general agreement on
the text of the statement, but. for
a variety of reasons, several of
the representatives felt that indi-
vidual messages from their res-
pective groups to the leaders of
the Israeli political parties would
be more effective than a single
cable. All present praised Dr.
Cohen for taking the initiative in
calling this important meeting,
and thus informing Israel that
opposition to the proposed law
was widespread, and involved the
large majority of American Jews
and their organizations.

ORT IS A 10' is the theme of Tampa's ORT Chapters 10th
anniversary celebration. Robert and Rene Friedman have
graciously consented to have the party around their pool so
casual dress is the style of the evening beginning at 7:30 p.m.
There will be a fashion show of men s and women's clothes,
modeled by ORT husbands and wives, and all you have to do to
attend is pay your 81-82 membership dues. A Viennese dessert
table is planned so no diets this night. Reservations may be
made with Aids Wwissmew -251-1128; JohannaBarat 839-6259:
Jan Bloom 967-7778 or Bonnie Shafria 961-7977. Better pay
your ORT dues, this sounds too good to miss.
Was Doris Horn surprised recently when her husband, Sid,
and her three children, 20 year-old Vkki, 18 year-old Alyssa, and
15 year-old Douglas threw her a "humdinger" of a birthday
party on July 24. Keeping all of the plans and arrangements a
secret, Vicki and Alyssa came home from Gainesville, where
they are both attending the summer sessions at the University
of Florida, to help then- Dad get everything ready and to get
Doris out of the house for the entire day of the party "which
was no easy feat," said Sid. Convincing her that the two of
them should take advantage of a free pass to enjoy a day at the
new Marriott Hotel pool, followed by a leisurely dinner, Sid
finally managed to pry Doris loose from the homestead, so that
the three kids, the caterer, and some friends could set up the
house for cocktails and desserts. Sid said that when they drove
up to their house that evening and Doris saw all of the cars, oth-
er than the fact that she refused to go into the house for a while,
everything turned out to be a rip-roaring success. He reported
that the look on Doris' face went from bewildered to amazed to
pleased. A real hearty happy birthday wish from us also, Doris
(hope next year's big day is a little milder!)
Our friends Florence and Ben Gutkin report that their son
and daughter-in-law have some happy news to share. Martin and
Rhythm Gutkin have become the proud parents of s baby girl,
Katherine Irene Gutkin. in Jacksonville. Martin is a CPA with
the firm of Jaffe, Shainbrown, and Grenadier. Rhythm is a pro-
fessional ballet dancer and operates her own school of dance in
Jax. Our warmest wishes to you Florence and Ben on becoming
grandparents for the third time, and to the new Mom and Dad.
Lots of happiness on this wonderful occasion.

We recently heard from Mary Surasky that the Albert
Aronovitz JWV Post 373 is planning a terrific party on Sep-
tember 20 at Temple David. Called a "Pinning Party." all mem-
bers of the post, both new and old. will be sworn in as members
of JWV. In addition, a delicious kosher pot roast dinner will be
served. It sounds like a lovely evening and the public is invited
to attend. For more information about the "Pinning Party." call
Mary during the evenings at 962-1466.
The USY Chapter at Congregation Kol Ami has really been
active this summer and we would like to tell you about all of
those activities. They recently had a beach day and invited
chapters from the sub-region. Everyone had a great time swim-
ming, sunning, and playing frisbee. After beach day, came
elections, which were held at Steve Frisco's home. Our con-
gratulations and best wishes to the new USY officers who in-
clude: President. Bruce Zalkin, First Vice President, Eileen
Zalkin, Second Vice President, Esther Shear, Secretary. Connie
Olstein, and Treasurer, Darryl Shaw. Finally, on the evening of
June 13, the group held their installation of officers. The entire
chapter received certificates for being charter members. In ad-
dition, outstanding service awards were given to Esther Shear.
Bruce Zalkin, and Eileen Zalkin. Following installations cere-
monies, a combination pool party and dinner was held. The busy
activity schedule sounds like fun and our wishes for a really pro-
ductive coming year.
The Tampa Evening Chapter of Women's American ORT
had its planning conference, headed by Toni Schultz, immediate
past president, and Aids Weissman, newly elected president
Tuesday, June 30 at the JCC. Forty-five ladies attended this
conference to plan for the exciting 1981 -82 year. Besides it being
appealing to the hearts and minds, the evening was appealing to
the taste buds, also. Dinner was served with a representation of
foods from various countries which are a part of the ORT global
network. From France there was quiche and French bread, from
the United States there was tossed salad, from Israel there was
chopped liver, and from South America, there was flan. I-~IW

American Working on
Israel Base Fired
For Hate Remarks
TEL AVIV The administrative director of an
American firm building a new Israeli air base in the Negev
which is to replace one in Sinai under the peace agreement
with Egypt has been dismissed and sent home after he
made anti-Semitic remarks, it was reported by Israel
ACCORDING TO the report, Don Bast, administra-
tive director of the U.S. firm, Air Base Contractors
(ABC), allegedly said during a quarrel with the wife of an
American Jewish engineer that "Hitler should have
finished the job he started," as well as other anti-Semitic
and derogatory remarks against Israel. Both the wife and
her husband, whose names were not disclosed, com-
plained to a senior official of the Defense Ministry. Upon
hearing the complaint, the Defense Ministry official dis-
missed Bast and ordered him to return to the U.S.
Officials of the ABC have protested the dismissal,
claiming that the facts of the case were not as described
by the Jewish engineer and that the charge of anti-Semi-
tism is groundless. Bast left Israel last Thursday.

But Arafat denied that the
PLO was seeking the destruction
of the Jewish State. Instead he
said he offered Israel "two solu-
tions," a Palestinian state in any
part of the area from.which Israel
withdraws or a "democratic
state" in which Jews, Christians
and Arabs will live. However, he
declared that the Palestinians as
an "occupied people" have a
right to continue terrorist actions
against Israel.
Both Kvron and Arafat main-
tained that the ceasefire included
the Christian enclave in south
ARAFAT SAID he did not
know what direct role Saudi Ara-
bia played in achieving the cease-
lire, although he said the Saudis
and other Arab brothers" had
helped the Palestinians.

It's Temperature Time
We devoutly hope that the American Jewish
community would stop taking its pulse and temper-
ature in public as assiduously as it has been doing in
the recent past.
We refer to the just-announced findings of an
American Jewish Committee-sponsored Yankelovich
report on the status of anti-Semitism in America
today. This is not meant as criticism of the American
Jewish Committee, which does much excellent work
in the cause of the community. We are certain that it
was felt that yet another study of just how many
people hate Jews or Israel today would be most help-
Still, it does seem that a more pleasant approach
might be to wonder: Who cares? Surely, we have
enough statistics on this and releated matters
amassed during the last few years to serve our in-
formational needs for a long time to come. Small
swings in one direction or another can not be of such
monumental consequence as to evoke other dangers
in the process.
For example, does it not strike the American
Jewish community, as it does us, that few if any oth-
er minority or special interest group go around the
country with such regularity, such devotion to sta-
tistics, such assiduous dedication to the highly in-
accurate methods of social science in the cause of dis-
covering just who loves them at the moment and who
does not.
On the other hand, what does the publication of
the results of this compulsive, doubtfully accurate
testing accomplish? Is it beyond the realm of prob-
ability to argue that announcements that anti-
Semitism has increased in themselves encourage it to
increase? And reckoned in terms of the ancillary
matter of Israel, what group gives such a commo-
dious theatre as do American Jews to discovering
through a public opinion poll whether or not a par-
ticular country should continue to exist? This is not
only gratuitous, it is absurd.
May we politely suggest: less compulsive test-
ing please. Less attention for a while to discovering
just who loves us and who does not. What is impor-
tant is for us to love ourselves as Jews, and each
Double Denials
Israel denies vociferously that it has dealt with
the Palestine Liberation Organization in acceding to
a ceasefire in Lebanon. Yasir Arafat denies equally
vociferously that his PLO has dealt with Israel in
acceding to a ceasefire in Lebanon.
For both, the issue is that each refuses to rec-
ognize the legitimacy of the other and that, there-
fore, acceding to the ceasefire was a larger gesture in
the name of peace rather than a specific act with an
illegitimate entity.
In the end, what is important is the reiteration
of the PLO refusal to accept Israeli national integrity
under any circumstances. We are at a loss to under-
stand how any of Israel's so-called friends can there-
fore insist that it is Prime Minister Begin's alleged
intransigency or Israel's that is at the root of the
failure to achieve peace in the Middle East. That all
Israel has to do to achieve it is to make friends with
We are at a loss to understand how they do not
perceive that only Israel's dissolution will satisfay
this Muscovite puppet.

Term is Both Hostile and Anti-Semitic
Use of the term JAP. for
Jewish American Princess
needs u> Ik- understood as con-
noting not only hostility but also
anti-Semitism, according to the
editor of a major Jewish youth
Else Solender, editor of the
Shofar, the publication of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization,
made that evaluation in an edi-
torial. "Lei s Zap lht" JAI''.' ,n
the April issue of the publication.
She declared that if the ap-
pearance of the purported JAP
was the only problem, "it might
not he so had." But, she asserted,
the JAP image also represents a
Bel of faulty values and atti-
She contended that the image
ol the JAP is of a woman who is
"self-absorbed and self-indul-
gent" who "doesn't pay her way
some man does. Daddy. Her
husband or both." The JAP is
spoiled, dependent, narcissistic,
a victim and a vicUmizer."
Concerning her view that the
term JAP indicated hostility, she
asserted that Jewish girls and
women use the term "on one
another only when they are being
either bitchy or catty." "You
don't compliment a friend by
calling her a .1 \P." As lor Jewish
males. Bhe asked rhetorically,
"what man in his right mind
"What man In hte right mind would want to marry-or
would want to marry or even
live with-a JAP?"
In seeking to prove that the
term has a clear anti-Semitic
component, the editor declared it
would help "to compare and con-
trast the JAP with another popu-
lar stereotype, the preppy.' For
males and females, the preppy
type also begins with a look"'
which she said has "generally
characterized the expensive
Eastern prep schools."
The editor added that the
preppy look means nothing new-
looking, nothing flashy." The
editor then asked: What do you

signer jeans drives a sports car,

How The Arabs Voted
HAIFA Many, many weeks
have elapsed since the national
elections, but Israelis are still en-
gaged in analysis and inter-
pretation of the results. One of
the significant developments was
a marked change in the trend of
voting among the Arab citizens
of the state, but there is no
unanimity in explaining that
There are almost a quarter of a
million voters in the Israeli
minority groups Arabs and
Druzes. Since their population is
largely concentrated in certain
towns and villages, and in
distinct precincts in the bigger
cities, it is relatively easy to
determine where this vote went.
The Arabs have usually given
their major support to the Com-
munist Party. Through the years
the party has been gaining in
strength, not because of the
socio-economic policies which
Communism advocates, but be-
cause this was the only way Arab
voters could express their dis-
satisfaction with Jewish govern
ment in a legal way. Four years
ago the Communist party polled
50 percent of the Arab village
vote and about 40 percent of the
Arab town vote, and gained 5
seats in the Knesset. It should be
added that some tens of thou-
sands of Jews also voted for this
party, but for other reasons.
In the June elections this year
the growing strength of the Com-
munists was arrested. They lost
about 10 percent of their support,
and sent only four members to
the parliament, two Arabs and
two Jews.
Where did the Arab voters
turn? The big gainer was the
Peres-led Labor Alignment,
which garnered some 40,000 Arab
votes this year, in contrast to
only about 16,000 in 1977.
The most significant part of
this trend is the fact that the
Arab voters did have other Arab
parties as alternatives. There was
an independent so-called United
Arab list, headed by two former
Knesset members, Seif el-Din
Zouabi and Jabber Muadi. It got
less than 12,000 votes, and
dropped out of the picture. An
Arab Brotherhood Party and a
separate Arab Citizen's' List be-
tween them received only 11,000
votes all of them together far
less than the support given by
Arabs to Labor.
One of the phenomena on the
Aral) scene is the extent to which
Aral) voters support other parties
Bt well. Thus Israel's Jewish
Orthodox bloc, the National It*-
ligious Party. Always makes a
relatively good showing. Some
say this is because the Orthodox
Moslems identify with the Jewish
clerical group; the cynics claim it
is a result of the generous patron
age which the NRP-controlled
Ministry of the Interior can dis-
pense to villages which co-
Further, it is surprising to find
a smattering of votes in the Arab
villages for Flato-Sharon. In Kafr
Kana, four citizens even voted for
Meir Kahanal
Begin was not popular. In
Nazareth he got 300 votes (3,000
for Labor and 8,000 for the Com-
mnunists,. In Shfar Am Arabs
gave Likud 315 votes (Labor 626,
and the Communists 2,850). The
only place where the present
Oovemment got resounding sup-
port was on the Golan Heights.
In the Druze village of Majdal
Shams, for example, the Likud
received 70 votes against 1 for
What is the significance of the
decline in support of the Com-
munists and the sharp swing to
Labor? For years the Labor
governments of Israel were seen
88 the "enemy." Since Begin
came to power, however, the
minorities in Israel, despite the
peace with Egypt. fear that
Likud policies are not in their
interest. Their support of Peres is
not out of love for Labor, but fear
of Likud, it is said. This is the
first tune since the establishment
ol the State that a considerable
segment of the Arah populatiaij
chose to support one of thedomi I
nant Jewish parties, rather thai
a separatist Arah group. Could4
this be a beginning of a true in-1
tegration of Arah citizens into j
the State, a process begun in the |
1950 "s but interrupted by the Six-
Day War?
Another opinion is offered by
observers who point out that tbi
year there was a marked decline
in overall Arab participation in |
the elections. Thousands of the j
younger people find fault with
the Communist party because* j
their eyes it has lost its revota- j
tionary spirit of dynamic protest j
Since the extremists do not yet |
have any legal |>olitical or
ganization through which they |
can express themselves, they [
called for boycott of the elections.
The results may indicate a polari-
zation in the Arah community
between one large group who
seeks peace and adjustment by
supporting a moderate Ziowj
party, and another large groatf
composed of Communists Hal

For many years my husband and I
thought about traveling to the Holy
Land. Although we were versed in the
history of this land, our greatest ex-
pectations were exceeded by what we
Gene and I departed from Miami and
arrived in Israel on Saturday evening
May 23, 1981. Ascending the Judean
mountains to Jerusalem, the "eternal
city" and the home of our three great
religions, is a truly emotional experience.
While walking the dirt roads of this
walled ancient city, we immediately
comprehended why this city is so holy
to all our major religionsand why
Jerusalem has been the site of some of
history's greatest conflicts. We
recognized that this was not going to
be another tourthis would be a
unique experience.

'Presented is a pictorial overview of a recent
visit by Senator Paula Hawkins to the
modern state of Israel the birthplace of
the two major religions of the Western world.
Senator Hawkins and her husband Gene had
the opportunity to visit Israel and to see the
miracle of a modern state born out of barren
rock and desert sand a country whose
technological advances are among the most
sophisticated in the world, whose unique ed-
ucational system integrates both Eastern
and Western cultures, and whose military
capabilities form a vital link in America's
global geopolitical strategy.
We appreciate and thank Senator Hawkins
and her husband Gene for sharing this excit-
ing experience with us.

Our first visit was to Yad Vaahem, the memorial
to the six mSbon Jewish victims of the Holocaust
This holy place serves aa a constant reminder to
the world of the horrors of Nazism and the
genocide rommrttari sgains* the European Jews.
This must never happen again. We walked
through the museum which pictoriaOy shows the
rise of Nazism and the cruelties that were inflicted
on a people only because they ware Jews. We
viewed the impressive monuments to the hero
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and then partici-
pated in a ceremony commemorating the death of
the Six Million-

we saw the site where the Mormon missionary
Orson Hyde dedicated the land to the Jews: pro-
claimed, in 1841. the rebirth of the State of Israel:
and beckoned Jews to return from all over the
world to restore this historic land and form a
modern state. This was particularly meaningful
since Gene and I are Mormons.

compromise America's military technology and
jeopardize the safety of American pilots and sol-
diers. He showed us the geographic proximity of
Saudi Arabia and Israel and emphasized that
those lethal weapons would have no other even-
tual use but against Israel. Mr Shamir's words
were sobering. He reminded us not only of the
most recent declaration of the Saudi leaders, de-
claring a Holy War against Israel, but also of the
Saudis participation in at least three previous
wars against Israel.
That evening, we met with the current leader of
the Labor Party. Shimon Peres. He stated that,
even though there are great differences between
Mr Begin and himself, thev share a common
ground concerning defense and adherence to the
belief that Israel and the United States share
common position.
Monday, May 25,1981
We began the day by meeting with Prime Mini*,
ter Menacbem Begin. I was impressed by he keen
insight into Israel's relations with her Arab
neighbors, his sincere desire for peace and his rec-
ognition of the Soviets as the most serious three:
to peace and stability in the Middle East and Per-
sian Gulf regions. He emphasized the disaster
that would result if sophisticated Americas
weapons were sold to unstable Arab states who
neither participate in the pence process nor rap-
port American foreign policy.
Later in the morning, we met with Mrs. Tamo
Eshel, a member of the Knesset (the Israeli Par-
liament). She noted that Israel is the only demo-
cratic state in the Middle East. She, a duly
elected member of the Knesset, serves with other
duly elected members including other women,
Arabs, Bedouins and Druze members. We dis-
cussed the sociological problems caused by the
large number of Jewish refugees absorbed from
Arab countries refugees who, when they enter
Israel, for the first time enter the twentieth
century refugees with large families and many
young children who have to be educated and
integrated into a modern western society.
Gene and I spent the rest of the morning at the
"new" Hadassah Hospital, a modem, world-
renowned medical center. Some of the major ad-
vances in medicine have been developed by
members of the staff of this hospital which treat
Jew and Arab alike. One of the doctors explained
to me that, before 1947, Arabs from all over the
Middle East came to Hadassah for advanced
medical treatment: and. even now, non-Jerusalem
Moslem and Arabs come there for treatment ot
their most serious medical problems. With pe*

for all.
Norman Braman. a friend from Miami whoiJ
companied us during our entire visit to I/**
took us to the original Hadassah Hospital buu
in the 1940s on Mount Scopus. This hospital was
surrounded by the JordaciaiM in 1948 and cou
not be used as a medical facility until 1967. Ar*"
hospital duplicating the one on Mount Scop*
was buik in Jerusalem in the early 1960a

,y, August 7, T981

Gene and I felt that this was a terrible waste of
physical property.
Norman Braman then told us the story of a
dearly marked unarmed medical convoy contain-
ing 105 professors, doctors, nurses and patients
which left for Mt. Scopus under British and Jor-
danian protection and guarantees for safety. En
route, it was attacked by Arab soldiers 76 were
slaughtered while the "protectors" did nothing.
Although this event happened in 1948, I can un-
derstand Israel's attitude that it must protect
itself guarantees cannot be relied on.
After lunch at the hospital and meeting with the
medical staff, we visited Jerusalem's religious
shrines, now accessible to all in a unified city. Je-
rusalem is a holy city of the western world's three
major religions Judaism, Christianity and
Islam. I was inspired to stand at the Western
Wall, to walk the Stations of the Cross, and to
view the Al-Aqsa Mosque holy sites dear to so
many people and now accessible to all religions.
Tuesday, May 26,1981
We left for the north via the Jordan Valley where
we stopped at Kibbutz Gilgal, located three miles
from the Jordanian border, composed of approxi-
mately eighty members, both Christian and Jew,
from all parts of the world. This kibbutz has a
very large number of children. The older children
expressed their concerns about security and their
fear of this territory's being returned to the Arabs
-which would mean that they would have to
leave their home. They reminded Gene and me
that Jews were not allowed to live in occupied Je-
rusalem or the West Bank while it was illegally oc-
cupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967. The younger
children showed me the bomb shelters in which
they sleep every night of their lives. We inspected
the vineyards and were amazed to see barren rock
turned into fertile soil and grapes growing on
this soil. This ability of these pioneers to make
productive use of the land is a major reason for
the success of the State of Israel.
We continued our journey to Lake Tiberias, the
Sea of Galilee, where Christ's ministry began and
where he performed many of his miracles. The
historical significance of this area is as important
as its present day significance. Now a heavily
fished sea surrounded by flourishing agricultural
((immunities, it supplies 80 percent of Israel's
fresh water. Prior to 1967, the Syrians and their
heavy artillery constantly bombarded-the sea and
the communities surrounding it, making
everyday farming and fishing a life or death
i \p( iunce. The serenity that now exists must be
such u sharp contrast to those times of peril.
We then ascended the Golan Heights to visit Kib-
butz Kfar Haruv. Of the 110 member population,
one-third are American and most of these are
American military veterans. Lenny Spector, who
conducted our tour, is from Bayonne, New Jersey.
He impressed upon us the importance of the Is-
raeli presence in the Golan Heights to protect the
heartlands of Israel. He reminded us that, during
the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Syrians would
have overrun and destroyed Israel had it not been
for the Israeli chain of settlements in the Golan
Heights. As he was talking, I gazed from the
barren rock-strewn countryside to the kibbutz's
1,000 acres of land under cultivation and shared
the pride these people feel. From these heights, I
could see how easily the Syrians could shell the
region from which we had just come the vul-
nerable farms around the Sea of Galilee. I fully
understood the peril to Israel and her need to re-
tain these lands and settlements which serve as
her first line of defense against a repeat of Syrian
Wednesday, May 27,1981
We arose early in the morning and again drove
north towards the Lebanese border stopping at
Metulla to visit a gateway in the "Good Fence"
- a unique international boundary between
Israel and Lebanon where the beleaguered
Lebanese-Christians are able to enter Israel for
social and medical aid. It is a site where one can
view what is left of the once beautiful country of
Lebanon now war-torn, occupied by Syria and
terrorized by the PLO. I was shocked to learn of
the genocide being practiced by Moslems against
Christians and to learn that, with the excep-
tion of Israel, the world silently watches, doing
nothing. Israel is the only country actively op-
posing the genocide of this once vibrant
Lebanese-Christian community. The Arab claim
that Jew and Moslem can live together in peace in
a secular state of Palestine is put to the teat in
Lebanon. It fails that test! Israel's aiding the
Lebanese-Christians to survive is proof of Israel s
On this up-beat not*, we left the "Good Fence"
and drove to the holy Jewish city of Sfad, a
quaint town where scholars intermingle with
artists and tourists visiting Jewish holy places. It
was in Sfad that I met Sara Zefira, the head of the
Israel Red Magen David, an organization with
much meaning for me since I serve as its United
States National Co-Chairman. Sara showed me a
new ambulance that had just been delivered there
nd told me of the fine work being done by our or-
ganization. I resolved at that time to continue
'ven more strongly my fight to foroe the Interna-
tional Red Cross to recognize the Red Star of

David as an official symbol just as it does the Red
Cross, the Iranian Red Lion and Sun, and the
Moslem Red Crescent to include the Red
Magen David Adom as a member of the interna-
tional organization of mercy and to allow
official affiliation of the American and Israeli
sister organizations.
We returned to Tel Aviv and had a most enjoy-
able dinner with Mordecai Zippori, the Deputy
Minister of Defense and his lovely wife Tova. I
had looked forward to meeting this couple who
are cousins of good friends of mine in South Flor-
ida, Stan and Karen Margulies. We had a
fascinating interchange of ideas regarding Amer-
ica's and Israel's strategic and military needs.
Zippori expressed to me in the strongest military
^Htrc U but < mkw*!*J
terms how threatening the sale of sophisticated
weaponry such as the enhanced F-15's and
AWACS would be to the security of Israel. He
then added a much more startling thought how
could we Americans allow our most secret
military technology to be given a regime already
unstable? There was very little question in his
mind that the secrets of our AWACS and F-15's
would soon fall into Russian hands if given to the
Saudis, just as our F-14 airplane technology and
our Harpoon and Lance missile secrets had fallen
into Russian hands soon after being given to
Iran; and that President Carter planned to deliver
AWACS to Iran just before the fall of the Shah
| AWACS that would now be in the hands of Aya-
tollah Khomeni and the Russians. He reminded
me that many of the same people who testified
before the Senate that this could never happen in
Iran were now coming forth with similar
testimony about Saudi Arabia. I restated my
active opposition to such a sale. We must learn
from our mistakes, not repeat them.
Thursday, May 28,1981
I Early the next morning, we arrived in Beersheva,
the capital of the Negev. In the early 60's, Beer-
sheva was nothing more than a Bedouin trading
post; it is now the fourth largest city in Israel. I
was able to see again how barren and arid desert
had been transformed into productive, agricultur-
al soil. If what has been done here could be done
in other parts of the world, what benefits would
derive to underdeveloped nations, especially in
alleviating world hunger.
While in Beersheva, we visited the Ben Gurion
! University, the youngest and among the most in-
novative of Israel's universities. Ben Gurion U.
concentrates its efforts in several areas. Most
interesting to me were agriculture, irrigation and
health care. The medical school provides com-
plete modem medical care to the large Bedouin
community of the Negev, a community which
prior to 1970 received almost none. In discussion
with students and faculty, I learned another im-
portant facet of Israeli life everyone who serves
on the faculty teaches and everyone who teaches
serves. The social and economic implications of
this to me were staggering. This means that each
Israeli citizen, male and female, after completing
mandatory military service, spends an average
one month a year on active military duty.
Gene and I examined other divisions of the Uni-
versity where applied research for specific prob-
lems is being performed. As a member of the
Senate Committee on Agriculture and as senator
from Florida, where agriculture is a major in-
dustry, the projects that centered on special uses
and conservation of water, new agricultural ap-
proaches and the unorthodox use of presently
grown crops were of special interest to me. We
visited four desert settlements where brackish
water, never before used in agriculture, is now
being used to grow cotton, com and wheat. I dis-
cussed the possible applications of this method of
agriculture for use in Florida. It seems to me that,
if brackish warm water could be used in our state,
we might be able to avoid the problems of un-
timely freezes and resulting crop loss. I have
asked Dr. Pasternak to provide additional in-
formation and to testify before the Senate Com-
mittee on Agriculture on these innovative
I was excited to meet with Dr. Mizrachi. who ex-
plained how his genetic research on tomatoes has
produced a commercially acceptable product with
a six week shelf life. I asked if this could be
feasibly done in Florida where tomato farming is
an important part of our agriculture industry. He
thought that his research could be useful in Flor-
ida and agreed to testify before the Senate on this
subject. I feel that, with the possible benefits to
residents and farmers in Florida, this is well
worth looking into, because of Florida's water
problems, especially shortages, I was extremely
interested in the Israeli system of drip irrigation
presently being used in the Negev to grow fruits
and vegetables. Their moisturized hot houses
allow for the inexpensive growth of large varieties
with very little usage of water and with extremely
high yield per acre. This is another area having
important implications for Florida and will be
carefully followed.
Of interest for Florida also were projects of de-
salinization, the use of salt water for commercial
growth of ornamental plants, and techniques for
energy production from solar resources. I was
amazed to learn that there were joint projects be-
tween Ben Gurion University and Egyptian
academic centers that are already benefitting the
populations of North Africa. One of these in-
volves research on animal health care at the Isan
Center for Comparative Medicine, the veterinary
center at the university, dedicated by Floridians,
i Barbara and Jerry Isan. Before leaving the Uni-
versity, I had lunch with President Shlomo Gazit,
the former head of Israeli intelligence and Vice
President Israel Ben Amitai, former chief of Is-
raeli artillery. We discussed the strategic impor-
tance of the Negev and the Sinai. They explained
to me the strategic and economic sacrifice Israel
had made by returning to Egypt the Sinai with its
important military bases and its large oil supply
at a cost to Israel of over eight billion dollars!
They felt that Prime Minister Begin was offering
everything possible for the sake of peace. I aug*
gested that the military bases in the Sinai, the

Cm Ire Israeli Attack
It seems to me that there is a terrible sense of;
unreality about the outcry over Israel's
attack on the Iraqi nuclear faculty at Tuwa-
itha. Rarely does a commentator mention the
explicit threat made by Saddam Hussein, the1
President of Iraq, to use Weapons supplied
by this reactor against Israel. Rarely does'
anyone mention the destabilizing effect a
nuclear weapon would have in the hands of
Hussein, or any of a number of other Mideast
Looked at realistically, the Israeli attack has,
to be seen as stabilizing not upsetting. It is
ironic that those who call for having all
nuclear weapons destroyed should object to'
the destruction of this nuclear device,,
potentially in the possession of someone
engaged in a holy war of elimination against,
the people of Israel.
But, of course, Mr. President, the Israeh
attack is not viewed realistically. It is viewed
through the prism of the United Nations, an
organization which sometimes appears de-
dicated to clouding the real world in a fog of
rhetorical confusion. The United Nations is,
to put it mildly, irresponsible. It has no real
constituency, no economic base, no founding
in the real world. It is largely a paper organi-
zation, and so it can engage in a paper battle.
Nations such as Israel can pay some at-
tention to the U.N. so long as it does not
threaten Israels real interests. The United
States is the same way. The only difference
seems to me to be that Israel has a clearer
sense of its own interests than the United
States has demonstrated in recent years."
