Israel Denies U.S. Threats to Begin
JERUSALEM- (JTA)- Israel has officially denied that Presi-
pnt Reagan's special envoy, Philip Habib, conveyed a warning to
Vernier Menachem Begin not to take any military action in
ebanon. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said "no warning what-
rer" was received from Habib who met with Begin here before
ping to Beirut and then returning to Washington last Friday.
^Notwithstanding the denial, observers here are speculating over
pat prompted U .S. sources to leak stories of an alleged warning to
le media. According to the press accounts, Habib conveyed his
lessage, obviously from President Reagan, to Foreign Minister
litznak Shamir and Defense Minister Ariel Sharon, as well as to
Israel Television's military commentator suggested that the
leaks were intended to demonstrate to the moderate Arab states
that the U.S. alone not the Soviet Union has the ability to re-
strain Israel.
Highly placed Israeli sources said that there was nothing to re-
strain inasmuch as Israel had repeatedly said it plans no military
action in Lebanon as long as the other parties, principally the
Palestine Liberation Organization, respect the ceasefire Habib
helped establish last July.
Nevertheless, it seems to be recognized here that Habib s
periodic visits to the region serve to calm tensions, particularly
during the current trying period before Israel completes its with-
drawal from Sinai.

Israel Vows Hawks Are to Update Old Equipment
A Defense Ministry
spokesman explained today
that Israel is not seeking to
buy new Hawk anti-aircraft
missile batteries it has pos-
sessed for years.
The spokesman was respond-
ing to a Pentagon announcement
that it intends to sell Israel 200
improved Hawk mobile anti-air-
craft missiles. The announcement
appeared calculated to reduce
Congressional opposition to the
proposed sale of mobile Hawk
batteries to Jordan. The Israeli
spokesman stressed that the new
Hawk missiles would represent a
qualitative, not quantitative im-
provement in Israel's air defense
Up Supplies
The terrorist groups in
south Lebanon continue to
increase their stockpile of
sophisticated weapons and
currently possess more
then 70 T-34 tanks and
about 300 mortars, artil-
lery pieces and rocket
launchers, the Israeli Con-
sulate in New York dis-
According to the Consulate re-
port, the Palestine Liberation
Organization and other terrorist
groups in south Lebanon have
about 100 longrange guns (130
and 155mmI; about 60 B.M.-ll-
21 rocket launchers, and 120 and-
160 mm mortars. They also
possess over a hundred BTR-152,
4R-416 and 3Y1 Brom-2 armored
personel carriers.
The Consulate disclosed in that
the terrorists have already used
some of their newly-acquired so-
phisticated weapons in the shell-
ing and rocket attacks on settle-
ments and towns in the north of
Israel last July. "It should be
noted that the terrorists are con-
stantly seeking to acquire new
supplies that might expand their
firing range to include additional
settlements in the north of
Israel." the Consulate said.
IN ADDITION to obtaining
new weaponry, the terrorists re-
inforced their units in south
(/fbanon. absorbing volunteers
from South Yemen, Libya and
Iraq, the Consulate said, adding
that "leftist Lebanese groups i
have joined the terrorists as.
According to the Consulate,
the terrorists made significant
inroads in fortifying their forces
and in the field of logistics. "Re-
inforcement of the terrorist forces
in southern Lebanon continues,
especially in the area of Nabatea,
and Bouffer," the Consulate!
charged. "This activity has in-1
eluded the erection of outposts,
the digging of trenches, main-
tenance of anti-tank ditches and
reinforcement of strategic posi- j
tions." l
The cessation of hostilities in
the area is being exploited by the
terrorists for the conduct of
speedy logistic operations.
"Israel's request means
preservation of current capabili-
ty, while the Jordanian request
reflects a desire to build-up and
improve its air defense capabili-
ty." the spokesman said.
HE CLAIMED that the Hawk
missiles which Jordan already
has. and which are fixed in con-
crete, not mobile, "are of a new
and improved model and have the
standard missile complement." in
contrast to Israel's Hawks which
are out of date. The Israeli state-
ment referred to 100 new mis-
siles, not the 200 mentioned by
the Pentagon.
The Pentagon announcement
said the $47 million sale would
"supplement" Israel's current
supply of Hawk missiles "ensur-
ing an adequate war reserve,
adequate missiles for
training requirements The,

after Defense Secretary ft
Weinberger reportedly ofla
them during his visit to An

subsequently denied that it7
tends to sell the Hawks to Jo

them. But Weinberger, who 1
ports the sale, insists that in

entire Reform Jewish movement.
Kukoff, a much sought after
lecturer and specialist in Jewish
adult education, travels ex-
tensively throughout the United
States and Canada. Her articles
have appeared in numerous
Jewish magazines and
periodicals. She is a member of

Task Force on Reform Jewish
Outreach of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
and the Central Conference of
American Rabbis and sits on the
Reform movement's Commission
on Jewish Education.

Escalating Activity
BONN (JTA) Interior Minister Gerhart Baum
has warned the Bundestag that the Palestine Liberation
Organization is escalating its terrorist activities in West
Germany and other parts of Europe and cited several
recent cases of cooperation between the PLO and German
terrorist groups.
IN A WRITTEN REPORT to the Bundestag's In-
terior Committee, Baum predicted further violence by the
PLO but said the police were prepared to cope with it. He
attributed these developments to conflicts among the
rival factions within the PLO.
Baum also reported that Arab guerrillas from Syria
have been active recently in the Federal Republic. He said
it is assumed that they are out to assassinate leaders of a
Moslem fundamentalist organization.

The Pope's Welcome Statement
We welcome the decision of Pope John Paul II to
make it official that the Church will henceforward
abandon all its efforts to proselytize among Jews.
It is not that we are concerned about the success
ratio of the Church's efforts which, historically, have
not been significant. Rather, it is that the Pope's
statement puts a halt to the "special" relationship
that the Church fathers have carved out between
themselves and the Jews, in a sense linking
Christianity's salvation to the "redemption" of the
In brief: no redemption, no salvation. Translated
this means, if the Jews won't play, then Christendom
can't have its eternal bliss. We don't mean to criticize
Catholic theology here. We merely mean to ob-
serve that it is this formula that spurred Christian
anti-Semitism for lo these 2.000 years. This formula
and the obscencity that the Jews are to blame for the
crucifixion of Jesus.
More important, it is this formula that has thus far
prevented the Church fathers from coming to terms
with Judaism as a religion all of its own deserving of
full-fledge status and respect, let alone that Judaism
is the very spiritual root of Christendom, which the
Church has never denied, but merely refurbished to
suit its view of history.
Pope John Paul's statement earlier this month
should rectify a good deal of this this and the
Pope's own confession of the Church's many sins
heaped upon the Jews, among them what he himself
called profound "offenses."
But there is many a slip twixt, etc. The problem
now is to get the Pope's message out into the boon-
docks of the Catholic world. How do you change two
millenia of cruelty and oppression and persecution
and the arrogance of Church pride against the Jews
committed in the name of God? And whose (iod, af-
ter all? It will be a difficult task.
While the Reagan Administration's economic
recovery program has yet to show significant indi-
cations of success. President Reagan says we should
keep the faith and bite the bullet, relief is on the way.
It's surely a hard view to digest for those on the
bottom of the totem pole looking up. But within the
Jewish community, this has prompted one leading
official to call for a show of pluralism to seek a more
moderate program that adapts to the social fiber of
the country.
Albert Chernin, executive vice chairman of the
National Jewish Community Relations Advisory
Council, in an "Overview" of "Basic Trends and
Priorities in Jewish Community Relations."
presented at a four-day plenum recently in Houston,
admits that there is no quick fix to the problems of
the poor, but he expresses fear that high poverty
levels and increasing unemployment may foster
hostilities between certain groups in society.
Chernin predicts that the prospects for achiev-
ing these reforms are discouraging but expects the
tide to change. He suggests that the time is ripe for
the Jewish community to define its goals, build the
necessary coalitions and increase public conscious-
ness. He continues. "We have to join with others in
the fostering of pluralism and a sense of common
good. Pluralism is increasingly accepted but there is
not the acceptance of the common responsibility for
meeting the social and economic needs of this na-
tion." Chernin concludes with the warning that "un-
less we do so, the social fabric of this nation will be
Frank Reborn in Goldsboro, N.Q
TESTIMONY last week of an
octogenarian corroborating the
innocence of Leo Frank comes at
an odd moment in history In
Nashville \lonzo Mann, who told
thr Tennessean Newspaper
.thing that be was afraid to
;n an -\tlanta court trial in
because he wants to prepare
himself to die in peace, highlights
an odious rebirth of the Ku Klux
Klan for the second time in a
-ingle century
The Frank trial spurred the re
emergence of the Klan following
its spectacular rise to terrorist
power after the Civil War and its
fall from public favor by the turn
of the 20th Century
IMPLICATING Frank in his
alleged sex slaying of a teenage
girl. Mary Phagan. and finding
him guilty, the legal powers en-
couraged the return of the KKK
i* a populist force for vengeance.
Shortly after Georgia Gov.
John Slatonin 1915 commuted
Frank's death sentence to life im-
prisonment, tne KKK. shouting
"Kill the Jew" and "Jew
sodomite," forcibly removed
Frank from his jail cell, took him
to a wooded area in Marietta.
Ga.. and hanged him.
All of this, including Mann's
testimony only last week in
Nashville, is especially signifi-
cant today because of the reemer-
gence of the KKK yet a second
time, following the rise of the
South as an industrial force after
World War II and the salutary
libertarian effects of the civil
rights movement on racial and
religious prejudice in an unprece-
dented post-war era of political,
social and economic reform.
In that era. the KKK. which
managed to preserve its national
identity through the earlv vears
of the' 1929 Depression.'finally
floundered and went under-
ground But the disaffection of
the post-Vietnam years, coupled
with the rising incidence of in-
ternational terrorism as a "re-
spectable" kind of insurgency in
the cause of "liberation" move-
ments, have somehow given the
K KK a nev lease on life.
I an threaten the fabric of social
equilibrium in the name of some
"just" set of principles, then why
not the KKK too as it "fights"
for a WASP America''
Rut it is a matter of history
that last time at bat. when these
hooded idiots in the form of the
Knights of Mary Phagan last
roamed the world of I,eo Frank,
they gave rise to armed anti-
Semitic mobs who cruised
through the streets of Atlanta to
launch by intimidation the boy-
cott of Jewish places of business.
It was the KKK that forced an
estimated half of Georgia's 3.000
Jews finally to move away.
It is against this backdrop that

But Mubarak was frank to list
immediate stumbling blocks to
an agreement, including Egypt's
inability to afford any com-
promises on autonomy at this
time for fear of offending other
Arab states. He also cited Is-
rael's alleged failure to engage in
"confidence building" measures
to nullify the effects of its bomb-
ing of Iraq's nuclear reactor, the
attack on the PLO compound in
Beirut and the extension of civil
law to the Golan Heights.
however, that in spite of these
problems, the normalization pro-
cess will continue. Egypt will
keep the door open to other Arab
states, he noted, "but not at the
expense of Israel. It is, after all,
in the best interests of our neigh-
bors (for us) to have good rela-
tions with Israel."

Papal Pronouncement
No More Conversion Aimed at Jews
The consultation in Vatican
City March 2 to 6 of some
40 Catholic and other
Christian clergy and lay
leaders who met to study
the present state of
Christian-Jewish relations
was significant for a num-
ber of reasons.
First, this was the first time*,
that experts in Christian-Jewish
relations from throughout the
world were assembled on an of-
ficial basis under Vatican
auspices to review the progress
made in understanding between
Christians and Jews on a global
basis, as well as to probe means
for dealing constructively with
outstanding problems of a
theological, sociological, and
political character.
SECOND, the statement by
Pope John Paul II before this
conference in which he called for
the abandonment of "any and all
attempts to convert the Jews" is
the first time that any Pope in
the 1,900 years of the Roman
Catholic Church has officially
and explicitly proclaimed an end
to the missionary pressures on
the Jewish people.
The importance of that
declaration is underscored by the
Pope's providing a theological
rationale to the effect that "the
special relations (of Christianity)
with Jews exempts them from
being subject to the Gospel com-
mandment to evangelize the
That unprecedented repudia-
tion of the traditional Christian
mission to convert the Jews could
well mark a turning point in the
anguished 2,000-year encounter
between Christendom and the
Jewish people.
While addressed primarily to
some 720 million Catholic people
throughout the world, the fact
that representatives of the World
Council of Churches (WCC),
Eastern Orthodox, World Angli-
can, and World Lutheran Church
bodies were present to hear the
Pope's statement cannot be with-
out substantial influence in the
attitudes and behavior of non-
Catholic churches and peoples
toward Jews.
INDEED, the WCC, repre
senting world Protestantism and
Eastern Orthodoxy, is in the pro-
cess of adopting a far-reaching
set of "Guidelines for Jewish-
Christian Dialogue" which simi-
larly rejects proselytism. The
WCC guidelines, in whose draft-
ing I was privileged to partici-
pate in June, 1981 in London, de-
"Such rejection of proselytism,
and such advocacy of respect for
the integrity and the identity of
ali persons and all communities
of faith are urgent in relation to
Jews, especially those who live as
minorities among Christians."
Pope John Paul II also con-

demned anti-Semitism. We were
informed that the Pope spoke in a
warm and feeling way when he
confessionally acknowledged
"the terrible persecutions in-
flicted on Jews by Christians"
and that "finally (these persecu-
tions) have opened our eyes and
transformed our hearts." He then
called on the Christian experts
"now to be concerned about
transforming the misunder-
standings, errors and even of-
fenses" that Christians inflicted
on Jews into "comprehension,
peace, and reciprocal esteem."
In seeking to translate the
Papal pronouncements into
practical programs, the Christian
specialists on Jewish-Christian
relations then spent three-and-a-
half days examining the follow-
ing key areas in Jewish-Christian

It will be some time before a
full report of the Vatican de-
liberations will be made public,
but it is now clear that the
Vatican authorities with whom
Jewish leaders have been meeting
regularly every year since
Vatican Council II have kept
good faith with the Jewish peo-
In October, 1981 and again in
December, 1981, a group of Jew-
ish leaders met with the Vatican
Secretariat of State in Vatican
City, and with the Vatican
Secretariat for Religious Rela-
tions with the Jews in Geneva.
At both those consultations the
Jewish leaders discussed their
concerns over the rise of anti-
Semitism, violence and terrorism
among other human rights
concerns in Europe, Latin
America, the United States, and
the Middle East.
The Vatican authorities
listened attentively to the facts
placed before them and promised
that they would undertake a
major effort to counter anti-
Semitism, especially in countries
where Catholicism predominates.
This consultation, and par-
ticularly the Pope's stirring and
potentially historic address, is a
gratifying response to our
Vatican-Jewish dialogue.

Letter to the President
DMi Mr.**:
We arc concerned that Secre-
tary Weinberger's proposal to
sell sophisticated arms to Jordan
sets the stage for an unnecessary
and divisive confrontation with
Congress that could undermine
American foreign policy around
the world. We urge you to act
quickly to avoid such a confron-
tation'by rejecting this proposal.
at least until Congress and our
allies have been thoroughly con-
The sale of F-16 fighters and
Hawk mobile anti-aircraft mis-
siles to Jordan could dramatical-
ly change the balance of power in
the Middle East, undermine the
security of our ally, Israel, and
increase the overall instability of
the region. Before any such sale
is proposed there should be the
widest range of Congressional
consultation, public discussion,
and communication with our
allies. Absent such discussion it
will be difficult to achieve the
kind of consensus our nation
needs on sensitive foreign policy
matters. And we cannot be an ef-
fective world leader without such
consensus at home, and among
our allies.
We urge you to announce im-
mediately and publicly that the
proposal to sell arms to Jordan
will not be developed further un-
til after the Congressional con-
sultation which such a proposal
deserves. World security cannot
afford an escalation of the arms
race in the Middle East. And the
United States cannot afford
another unnecessary and divisive
confrontation with Congress on a
foreign policy issue. We hope you
will take all steps necessary to
avoid it.

JCC Successful on 'Fly-Away9
A very successful fund-raiser,
capped off by a delicious dessert
and wine party Mar. 6 made this
year's "Israel Fly-Away" the
talk of the Tampa Jewish Com-
munity Center.
The fund-raiser, a trip for two
for one week to Israel with a
spending allowance, began in
December under the chairman-
ship of Lee Tobin, and ended with
the party at the home of Dr.
Martin and Sara Cohen under the
chairmanship of Michelle Gold-
stein and Carol Weinstein.
Over $17,000 was cleared by
the center, way surpassing any
previous fund-raiser ever held at
the JCC.
The winner of the trip was
Carol Zielonka, who purchased
her winning ticket from top ticket
seller Sid Bleendes.

Carol Zielonka had reason to
smile upon hearing that she was
the winner of the Jewish Com-

fundraiser. It was the person
selling the most tickets, Sid

ticket, too. There were many
prizewinners but the JCC was the
big winner, clearing over

"I certainly appreciate all the
support from the community,"
said Tobin. "It was a great fund
raiser, and I hope the center will
be able to improve on it next year
with bigger and better prizes."

The GalileeArab or Jewish
ISRAEL Wherever a Jew
lives he is in the minority except
in his own country. Israel. Yet
even here this circumstance is
changing rapidly. Israelis are al-
ready outnumbered in parts of
the Jewish homeland.
The Galilee, northern Israel,
holds a population of half a mil-
lion: 135.000 Israelis. 365.000
Arabs. The Arabs, with the high-
est birthrate in the world, sur-
passing even that of China, have
five children for every two born
to Jews. According to Defense
Minister. Arik Sharon, 600.000
Israelis are needed in the Galilee
to insure its security.
"Depending on what land we
settle," says Benny Tannen-
baum. the first person to move
into mitzpeh Adi," 20 miles east
of Haifa. "Israel shrinks or ex-
pands. For every Jew who leaves
the Galilee or doesn't come, two
Arabs will take his place. If we
don't settle the north, they will.
Then it will no longer be part of
the Jewish State. It will be the
Galut. It will be Arab."
To prevent this, the Israel
government has helped establish
33 mini-settlements in the
Galilee. They are set in isolated
terrain on bare, limestone hill-
tops. The roads connecting them
to main highways are carved out
of solid rock at government ex-
pense. But access roads leading
to settlements, within them, and
connecting them to one another
are built by the Jewish National
Fund. To blast out gigantic
boulders, haul fill, flatten earth,
and lay a section of road four
miles long costs $500,000. In the
last two years the Jewish
National Fund has put in 80
miles of new roads, though some
are only covered with quarry
stone and not yet paved because
of inadequate cash flow to finish
them. If they are not completed,
they will eventually disintegrate
and wash away in the winter
Undaunted, Benny Tannen-
haum sits at the kitchen table in
his temporary house made of
asbestos. "I am 30," he says. "I
have fought in three wars. This
minute, while I am drinking my
coffee, a jeep could come to take
me and I would fight in another
one. We who stay in Israel, who
accept it for better or worse, we
think security is the most im-
portant thing. Because of
security, I and my wife Aviva
took our two children and left
everything. We had some Zionisn
in us. some craziness. That is
why we decided to do it."
"We were living in Kiryat
Higheem, a suburb of Haifa. We
owned our own apartment and we
had good jobs, both of us. I am
an engineer and my wife is an ac-
countant. But there are so many
wars in this country and wars
break things, they kill them. We
wanted to build."
What Benny and Aviva Tan-
nenbaum and the 13 other
families with them at mitzpeh
"Adi" want to build is a tourist
center. "Adi" itself is nothing
more than 14 small houses on one
block at the moment. "But,"
says Benny, "the Jewish
National Fund has bought
enough land for 400 families to
live here. And they own 3,000
acres of forest on the next hill.
They are willing to give it to us to

Filling in Background
Libya Oil Import to U.S. Barred
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration announced
that it is prohibiting the
import of crude oil from
Libya to the U.S. because
of the support the regime of
Col. Muammar Khaddafi
gives to terrorism through-
out the world and Libya's
efforts to destabilize
America's friends in the
Middle East.
A senior State Department of
ficial told reporters that the U.S.
was not seeking "merely an im-
provement in atmospherics but a
change in Libyan behavior.
That behavior, as outlined by the
official, included support of ter-
rorism throughout the world, ef-

Tadmor. a Sabra, was born in
Haifa. He had a career in the
Israel Defense Forces, serving as
a Golani Brigade Company com-
mander. He also was commander
of the Military Institute for Edu-
cation: head of the information
branch; and deputy chief of edu-
cation in the IDF Forces.
In 1977. Tadmor retired and
was appointed executive director
of the Israel Aliyah Center in
North America (based in New
York City). His two year tour in
that post complete, Tadmor was
asked to stay in New York repre-

November when a Libyan was ar-
rested on his way to Khartoum to
commit an "outrageous attempt'
against Americans in Sudan, the
official said.
He said the arrested Libyan
was planning to place 20 kilos of
explosives each in two stereo
speakers destined for the Ameri-
can Club in Khartoum, and had
the attempt succeeded, the club
would have been destroyed and
manv Americans, both officials
and "private citizens, would have
been killed or injured. The official
made no mention of the hit
squads" reportedly sent by
Khaddafi to assassinate Presi-
dent Reagan and other top
American official last fall.
THE SENIOR official said
that the decision to act on Libya
was not a sudden one and was not
based on any specific act by
Libya, but came after a review of
U.S. policy toward Libya that
has been going on since the
Administration took office last
He said the Administration
sent a "signal" to Libya last May
when it closed the Libyan Peo-
ples Bureau (Embassy) in Wash-
ington and again when U.S.
Navy ships maneuvered off the
coast of Libya to demonstrate
U.S. belief in freedom of the seas
and were attacked by Libyan
jets, two of which were shot
The restrictions announced
also ban the provision to Libya of
U.S. oil and gas technology and
eqiupment which, the official
said, are not available outside the
U.S. The Administration is also
requiring licenses for any exports
to Libya except food and agricul-
tural products and medicine and
medical equipment. The senior
official conceded that America1,
allies have not gone along with
the ban.
BUT HE said the U.S. want,
to prevent Libya from using
dollar revenues it receives from
the US' to finance Terrorism and
other violent activities around
the world. He estimated that
Libya receives about $2 billion a
year from oil exports to the US',
approximately 10 percent of iu
oil revenues
The official said Libya could
make up the loss by selling oil on
the spot market He noted, how-
ever, that with the present world
oil glut, the Libyans would have
to reduce their price well below
the 837 per barrel they are now

French Neo-Nazi Wounded
PARIS (JTA) A French neo-Nazi was seriously
wounded by an anonymous assailant who shot him in the
chest and shoulder.
Marc Gillet, 23, was shot in his apartment in Nice, by
a man who, he said, he barely saw. His condition was des-
cribed as serious by hospital sources.
Gil,LET WAS found guilty last May of neo-Nazi
activities. A Nice court sentenced him to 18 months im-
prisonment but most of the sentence was suspended. He
was accused of addressing threatening, violently anti-
Semitic letters to Jewish leaders in the south of France.
The court also found him guilty of setting up the local
branch of the FANE (Federation of European and
National Action), the largest neo-Nazi organization in
France which was outlawed by Parliament in 1980.
Gillet's family says Jewish activists have been threaten-
ing him since his trial.

States and Canada, Kahn told a
press conference following the
premier. He said in another 20
years, there would no longer be
any survivors alive to bear wit-
ness. "My biggest concern is
what is going to be," he said.
KAHN'S OWN harrowing ex-
perience is described in the film
by Elizabeth Taylor. He and
other members of his family es-
caped into the woods and hid
from the Nazis but he left his
mother who refused to leave her
aged grandmother. The two
women were killed in the gas
"I had nightmares when I re-
turned from the studio," Taylor,
who along with Orson Welles
narrated the film, told the audi-
ence. "The nightmares were real
because what you saw (in the
film) was real. So many people do
not realize that. It (the Holo-
caust) did exist, and it could exist
again. It is up to people like you
to keep it from happening again."
Taylor's remarks were made at
a ceremony following the show-
ing of the film at which she and

illustrations for the film, of a
young Polish Jewish woman as a
symbol of the six million Jewish
victims of the Holocaust.
award was the chairman of the
evening, Frank Sinatra, who not-
ed that in Germany, the "coun-
trymen of Bach and Beethoven
became the custodians of Ausch-
witz" He said the world must
never again be indifferent to evil
committed against others.
The film, which was produced
by the Wiesenthal Center waa
produced and directed by Sch-
wartzman who also did the
screenplay. It was also written by
Rabbi Marvin Hier and Martin
Gilbert, the British historian of
the Holocaust period. The musk
was composed and conducted by
Elmer Bernstein.
Taylor reportedly did a mas-
terful job at reading the words of
victims and survivors. Welles
was the perfect choice as the nar-
rator. "Every word in the film is
real,'' Hier stressed.
The film does a good job in
presenting the history of pre-
World War II European Jewry
and then on anti-Semitism and
the rise of Nazism, albeit in a
capsule form. Through the use of
actual film clips, still portraits
and illustrations, it takes the
viewer through every step from
the Hitler takeover in Germany
to the extermination camps.
COMPLEX issues are dealt
Sith also. The film answers effec
vely the charge that Jews went
to their death like sheep to the
slaughter. It describes Jewish re-
sistance without overdoing it.
The scenes of the victims of both
those who survived and the dead
when the camps were liberated,
will remain long in the memories
of viewers. The film does not
gloss over the failure of the Uni-
ted States and the allies to bomb
the camps. At the end, it is noted
that Nazi incidents continue to-
day in the U.S. and abroad.
If there is criticism, it is that
the film does not show the Dis-
placed Persons camps after the
war and the desire of the Jewish
survivors to go to Israel. Israel is
hardly mentioned, although to be
fair, in describing how the West-
ern nations failed to take in Jews
before World War II, Welles
notes there was no Israel then.
The film also noted that others
besides Jews were murdered by
the Nazis, although it stresses
that it was the Jews who were the
main focus of the Nazi exter-
mination plans.
Wallenberg, the Swedish diplo-
mat who helped save thousands
of Hungarian Jews in World War
II is also depicted in the film. Si-
mon Wiesenthal, the Vienna-bas-
ed Nazi-hunter told the audience
at the ceremony that the premier
was being shown on the 37th an-
niversary of Wallenberg's arrest
by the Red Army after it liber-
ated Budapest in 1945. Wallen-
berg, who was made an honorary
U.S. citizen recently, is believed
to be still alive in a Soviet Prison
or labor caraD.
Three scenes stand out in the
film, in addition to the moving
words of the witnesses read by
Taylor. At one point, it is stress-
ed that the Nazis wanted not only
to kill Jews but to destroy all
remnants of Jewish life. Earner,
in a segment showing the atro-
cities against Orthodox Jews in
one Polish town, the Jews sing in
defiance of the Nazis, "We shall
outlive them," a message the
Holocaust should carry for all
Finally, Wiesenthal is shown
at the end of the film putting a
message into the Western Wall in
Jerusalem. It is: "I am my
brother's keeper."

Curacao Synagogue Marks Anniversary
The 250th anniversary of the oldest synagogue
in continuous use in the Western Hemisphere is
being marked by a mission this weekend to
Curacao, the Dutch island in the Caribbean. Cele-
brants are members of the World Union for Pro-
gressive Judaism.
Leaders of the World Union are taking part in a
week-long series of events celebrating the historic
anniversary of Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue,
built the year George Washington was born and
still the site of Jewish services today.
Gerard Daniel of New Rochelle, N.Y., WUPJ
president, is heading the mission. The Curacao
congregation is a member of the WUPJ, the in-
ternational organization of Reform synagogues in
Israel and 25 other countries.
The Dutch government, which is officially par-
ir ticipating in the celebration, is issuing commem-
orative stamps and coins and a special edition of
Delft tiles to mark the event.
..The American Jewish Congress has proposed
inclusion of clarifying language in the Voting
Rights Act as a way of bridging an impasse be-
tween the Reagan Administration and civil rights
groups. The suggested wording was requested by
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D., Mass.), a member of
the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the
Constitution, after hearing testimony by the di-
rector of the AJCongress Commission on Law
and Social Action.
The legislation, which originated and was
passed overwhelmingly in the House ofnepresen-
tatives, awaits action in the Senate. It has been
attacked by Administration officials as authoriz-
ing a quota system in the electoral process. Sena-
tors and civil rights groups supporting the
current version reject this contention.
The amended language advanced by the
AJCongress would specify that there is a denial of
the right to vote whenever any element "integral
to the political process" interferes with a citizen's
opportunity to exercise voting rights, such as a
past history of voter intimidation.
Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan (D., N.Y.) was
presented with the National Council of Young
Israel's Freedom Award at the organization's
70th anniversary dinner last Sunday at the Sher-
aton Centre in Manhattan.
According to Harold J. Jacobs, president of the
National Council, and Gerald Weisberg, chairman
of the dinner committee, Sea Moynihan was
selected for the Freedom Award "because of his
outspoken defense of the principles of democracy
and freedom before the world throughout his long
and distinguished career in service to the Ameri-
can people."
Moynihan was guest speaker at the event, at
which other leaders of government and the Jewish
community were also honored, including Sen. Al-
fonse D'Amato (R., N.Y.I, who received the
Young Israel Humanitarian Award, and Eli Gur-
n, of Forest Hills, N.Y., who was honored as
Man of the Year.
Greek Ambassador to the United States
Nicolas Karandreas received a delegation of
Jewish leaders who came to express disquiet over
recent actions of the Greek government relating
to Israel and the thrust of its Middle East policy.
Rabbi Arthur Schneier, chairman of the Ameri-
can Section of the World Jewish Congress,
conveyed the concern of the delegation over the
|ent affirmative vote by Greece at the UN on
resolution which called for the complete
isolation of Israel and which is viewed as having
laid the basis for moves to expel Israel from the
world body. The delegation noted that Greece was
the only member country of NATO to have voted
in the affirmative.
In response, the Ambassador explained that in
casting the vote, the Greek representative had
explicitly dissociated his government from those
provisions of the UN resolution calling for sanc-
tions and the isolation of Israel.
The American Jewish Committee will present
Leo M. Rogers, retired chairman of the Board of
Rogers Graphics with the Milton Weill Human
Relations Award on Mar. 28 at the University
Club in Sarasota, Fla.

H. Tanenbaum, national interreligious director of

Austrian television will broadcast daily one-
hour programs on the pre-World War II history of
the country's Jews, the content of which will
become a mandatory part of the educational
curriculum for Austrian schools. The broadcasts
will be capped by the selection of 10 non-Jewish
Austrian schoolchildren chosen for a "getting
acquainted" visit to Israel.
The month-long series of nightly broadcasts,
telecast throughout the whole of the country, is
the product of joint collaboration beteeen the
Austrian Educational Ministry, the Jewish Wel-
come Service of Vienna, and the Austrian televi-
sion network. As its aim, the series will illuminate
the role played by Austrian Jewry in the country
during the period from 1918 to 1983 until the Nazi
Austrian Jewry was all but destroyed during
the Holocaust. The Jewish community of 200,000
was reduced to a remnant 12,000 persons.
A study by the World Jewish Congress reports
that in the six years since the UN General
Assembly declared "Zionism equals racism," the
abuse of Zionism on the international scene has
become so deep-rooted and widespread "that even
states in the West previously sympathetic to
Zionism are viewing the term with increasing
caution and refraining from using it."
The study released by the WJC research arm,
the Institute of Jewish Affairs, analyzes the
defamation of Zionism in international affairs and
finds that "abusive references to Zionism are not
confined to Arab states and go far beyond direct
reference to Israel." The distortion of Zionism is
"deliberate and calculated and not just a product
of sloppy thinking," the report notes. Numerous
derisive examples are cited,
i Governments use the word to insult and criti-
cize opponents. Iraqi President Saddam Hussein
speaks of the "hostile, colonialist, Zionist and
racist machinations" of the Iranians, while the
Iranians refer to the "criminal government of
Iraq being entirely in the hands of international
Zionism." Speaking in Libya in September, 1980,
President Assad of Syria said that "Egypt will

At the same time, there was an

Kaddumi discussed the Middle
East crisis with Cardinal Agos-
tino Casaroli, the Vatican's Sec-
retary of State. Israel expressed
criticism of the meeting.

The Foreign Ministry said that
Kaddumi's visit will be in the

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And they came, both men and women, as many as were
^''ing-hearted, and brought all jewels of gold" (Exod.
VAYAKHEL Moses gathered the people together and in-
structed them in the holiness of the Sabbath. He also instructed
them m how to build the Tabernacle and its vessels. Bezalel and
Ohohab headed the skilled craftsmen working on the Taber-
nacle. The people gave liberally toward the sanctuary so
liberally, in fact, that it was necessary to ask them to stop. Once
again, the details of the Tabernacle and its vessels are given, at
the end of this portion.
"Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory
of the Lord filled the tabernacle" lExod. 40.34).
PEKUDE "These are the accounts of the Tabernacle, even
the Tabernacle of the testimony, as they were rendered accor-
ding to the commandment of Moses, through the service of the
U'vites, by the hand of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest"
I Exodus 38.21). "All the gold that was used for the work .
was twenty and nine talents, and 730 shekels, after the shekel of
the sanctuary. And the silver of them that were numbered of the
congregation was a 100 talents, and 1700 and three-score and
15 shekels" {Exodus 38.24-25). "And of the blue, and of purple,
and scarlet, they made plaited garment, for ministering in the
holy place {Exodus 39.1).
With the conclusion of the Tabernacle, Moses blessed the
children of Israel.
On the first day of the first month in the second year since
the departure of the children of Israel from Egypt the Taber-
nacle was set up. A cloud covered it and the glory of God filled
the Tabernacle. When the cloud rose, the children of Israel
continued on their journey through the desert toward the
Promised Land.

are both reported to have "ac-

from Education Minister Zevulun

make it a misdemeanor "for any

less disregard put another person
in fear of bodily harm or death by
placing on public or private prop-
erty a symbol, object, appella-
tion, characterization, graffiti, a
burning cross or Nazi swastika."
The Councilman stated that
"reports show that many such
episodes of vandalism have in-
creased significantly in the past
12 months as to be serious reason
for concern." He noted that
businesses, churches and build-
ings owned or patronized by
Asians. Koreans and native
American Indians have been tar-
geted for vandalism and desecra-
tion "We have also seen a sub-
stantial increase in the number of
episodes of vandalism directed
mainly against residential Jewish
property," Levine said.
Human Rights Body
Hears Denunciation
Of Soviet Bigotry
head of the Israeli delegation to
the United Nations Human
Rights Commission delivered a
strong denunciation of Soviet
anti-Semitism here. The Israeli
envoy. Ambassador Ovadia
Soffer. spoke in the course of de
bate on "serious violations of
human rights in the world."
But an equally strong speech
expected from the United States
on the treatment of Jews in the
USSR, did not materialize. Al-
though Jacob Stein, who war
President Reagan's special ad j
viser on Jewish affairs until lasi ,
January, was sent to Geneva U
speak out on the subject, the US
delegation deferred to the Com-
mission chairman's appeal to
limit speeches because of the
shortage of time. The American
statement was circulated as an
official document.
surprised by that decision, told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that "the American delegate was
probably quite satisfied at not
having to make the speech and
thus not enter in a polemic" with
the Soviet representative.
Valerian Zorin, known for his
acerbic style.
Soffer, for his part, accused the
Soviets of State-sponsored anti-
Semitism. "The Soviet Jews con-
tinuously fall prey to the whims
of the authorities who regularly
subject them to all types of
humiliation and harassment,"
the Israeli said. "The Soviets
have unleashed a new wave of
judicial repression which has
brought about, during the past
six months, the sentencing of
nine Jewish activists."
Soffer charged that "The
violation of the basic human
rights of the Jews takes place in
concert with an alarming, cen-
trally directed anti-Semitic cam-
paign which is disguised as anti-
Former President Gerald Ford
has offered to meet Palestine
Ijberation Organization Chief
Yarir Arafat as a private
citizen'' to further PLO partici
pation in the Middle East peace
process. Ford, on a business trip
to Kuwait, reportedly made the
offer at an impromptu press
conference there. He said Arafat
would have to "recognize that
any such meeting would mean an
admission on his part that Israel
would be recognized by him and
his people "
Ford made it clear that he was
speaking for himself and that he
would not be representing the
US government should he meet
with Arafat He reiterated his
behel that the PLO "should par-
ticipate in any future negotia-
tion''' for a comprehensive peace
in the Middle East. Ford, and
former President Jimmy Carter
expressed the same view to
reporters last October after at-
tending the funeral of President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt in Cairo.
Egyptian Emphasizes
Ties of Friendship
TEL AVIV Egyptian
Foreign Minister Kamal Hassan
Ali arrived here Monday for high
level discussions with senior Is-
raeli officials on details of Israel's
withdrawal from Sinai next
month and the continuing
normalization process between
the two countries. The talks,
which opened in Jerusalem Tues-
day, constitute the fourth session
of the Israeli-Egyptian Joint
Commission on normalization.
Hassan Ali. who is also Deputy
Premier, heads an Egyptian
delegation that includes Minister
of State for Foreign Affairs Bou-
tros Ghali. They were greeted at
the airport by Defense Minister
Ariel Shpron who said he was
confident that the talks in Jeru-
salem will produce "further
achievements and that this visit
will contribute to the peace be-
tween our two countries."
Hassan Ali, addressing his
hosts as "dear friends," stressed
that the "primary basis of our re-
lations is to fully respect and im-
plement the obligations and com-
mitments stipulated in the peace
treaty, regardless of any issues or
developments that may arise in
the course of our hard won peace-
ful and friendly relations.
Ties to Arabs Not
Anti-israel, Says Bush
ident George Bush declared that
the Reagan Administration's
efforts to broaden American influ-
ence among the Arab states and
encourage moderate regimes was
not "an anti-Israel policy."
"On the contrary, it's enor-
mously advantageous to Israel,"
Bush told the more than 1,500
young Jewish leaders from across
the country attending the third
annual United Jewish Appeal
Young Leadership Conference at
the Washington Hilton.
Bush maintained that the U.S.
interests in the Middle East "is
in not allowing Soviet-backed
radical states to threaten the
stability of the region. It is in the
interest of peace, in the interest
of stability, that there be more
Anwar Sadat's and fewer
At the same time, Bush
stressed that the U.S. and Israel
are "strategic allies'' and "per-
manent friends, joined by com-
mon values and aspirations." He
said the Administration is com-
mitted to the security of Israel
and to the "Camp David accords
a* the only way towage peace" in
the Mideast.
Neo-Nazis Affirm Their
Paradise in Paraguay
NEW YORK Efforts of
former Nazis to find haven in
South America have taken a new
twist with the appearance of
advertisements in neo-Nazi pub-
lications asking "patriots" to
settle in "our paradise off the
beaten track, in Paraguay."
This development, reported by
the Institute of Jewish Affairs
