tory request has been "properly
rejected" by the Sybron Corpora-
tion, a manufacturer of medical
supplies and equipment. Similar
anti-Jewish discrimination de-
manded by the Syrian govern-
ment as a condition of proposed
contracts was rejected by the
Buck Engineering Co. of Far-
mingdale, N.J. and the Central
Scientific Co. of Chicago.
THE DEMAND by the Syrian
Ministry of Defense to Sybron,
dated March 5, 1981, was dis-
covered by the American Jewish
Congress during the course of its
program of monitoring reports to
the Department of Commerce of
boycott-related requests received
by American companies. Re-
quests to participate in a boycott
must be reported to the Com-
merce Department under the Ex-
port Administration Act. Access
to the report is made possible by
the Freedom of Information Act.
The proposed contract received
by Sybron includes the following
paragraph: Contract shall be
deemed canceled, regardless of
the state of affairs before the ap-
proval of the contract or after ad-
vising the contractor of the ap-
proval of the contract, if the ad-
ministration finds out that the
contractor, for the execution of
his contract, depends materially
on suspected persons, particular-
ly Jews. He shall be penally
prosecuted before the court mar-
tial, and legally for all expenses
and indemnities (financial penal-
ties) without his having the right
to any objection."
Concluding his letter to the
Syrian Ambassador to the U.S.,
Siegman wrote: "I need hardly
point out that American law for-
bids discrimination by employers
because of race or religion, and
that it would be illegal to comply
with your infamous paragraph
"Is it too much to hope that
your government might see in the
American experience of tolerance
and nondiscrimination an exam-
ple worth emulating?"
United States Congress. A
member of the anti-Nazi under-
ground during World War II and
a leader of the early post-war
anti-communist student
movement in his native Buda-
pest, he came to the United
States in 1947 on a Hillel Foun-
dation Scholarship.
For three decades he worked as
a professor of economics, televi-
sion analyst, and business
consultant. His previous govern-
ment service includes senior
advisory roles in the field of
economics and foreign policy.
Congressman Lantos is cur-
rently a member of the Commit-
tee on Foreign Affairs, Govern-
ment Operations, and the Aging.
He serves on the Subcommittee
on Europe and the Middle East of
the Foreign Affairs Committee.
He was named chairman of the
United States Congressional
Delegation to the European
Parliament, the first Freshman
ever named to such a position.

USFReceives "Seed Money9
For Judaic Studies Center
A Judaic Studies Center at the
University of South Florida has
moved a step closer to reality
with the presentation of a check
to Dean James Strange of the
College of Arts and Letters.
Stanley Igel of Clearwater
presented the check to Dean
Strange to serve as "seed
money" and to interest other
contributors. Igel heads a com-
mittee to raise funds for the
center, which would become part
of USF's department of religious
Dean Strange said he hopes the
new center will be able to get un-
derway by January, 1983. He has
consulted with David Weinstein,
past president of Spertus College
of Judaic a in Chicago, on plan-
ning the curriculum and library
for the proposed center.
He also has made tentative ar-
rangements with the Center for
Judaica at Oxford University in
England, and with Haifa Univer-
sity in Israel for semester abroad
studies for students from USF.
Planned courses would include
Medieval Jewish philosophy,
Medieval Jewish literature, Tal-
mud, Jewish civilization and
history of Zionism, among
others. The religious studies de-
partment already offers ancient
Judaism, ancient Hebrew, ar-
chaeology, and Bible courses.
"The center would bring in dis-
tinguished professors to teach
Judaic Studies and other discip-
lines," Strange said.
Strange is a professor of reli-
gious studies and archaeologist,
as well as dean. He gained inter-
national acclaim last summer as
part of a team which discovered
ancient sacred Jewish ark, the
first to be found after centuries of
search by archaeologists.

Free Testing for Tay Sachs in April
Are you in the "know"? Did
you hear that FREE testing for
Tay-Sachs disease is available at
the Genetics Division of USF
Medical School in coordination
with the Tampa Chapter of
National Council of Jewish
Women during the month of
April? All you need to do is make
a phone call for your appoint-
ment. How fortunate we are in
Hillsborough and Pinellas
Counties that testing is available.
Tay-Sachs disease is one of a
group of disorders known as "in-
born errors of metabolism." It is
a birth defect in which certain
chemical processes in the body do
not proceed normally, resulting
in serious disturbances in the
function of the brain
(ireal strides have already
Ixtm made in accumulating the
knowledge that may help control
Tay-Sachs disease. But there is
yet no cure, and no early prospect
for one However, we can prevent
Tay-Sachs with a testing
program to identify the carriers.
Victims of Tay-Sachs disease
are usuallv of Jewish ancestry
Who inhfnH Ta\-S*ch* Ditratr*
Victims are primarily those of Athkenati |rvish ancestry
whose roots go back to Central and Eastern Europe About
90 of American |evs trace their origins to this region
Geneticists beliete the Tay-Sachs gene arose spontaneously
in the (ewish population of Northeastern Poland, along the
Russian border Subsequent migration* established it through-
out Europe and the New World However, it should be noted
that Tay-Sachs cases do occur in other ethnic groups
About 90 percent of American
Jews trace their origins to the re-
gion in Eastern and Central
Europe where statistics have
shown that Tay-Sachs cases
occurred. However, it should be
noted that Tay-Sachs does occur
in other ethnic groups.
Kemember your testing is as
accessible as a phone call to 974-

in April your test is FREE.

Jews were hidden in homes,
convents and monasteries. They
were provided with false papers
identifying them as Catholic
parishioners. Some were given
clerical disguises and were in-

Congregation Schaarai Zedek that will hopefully trigger real
action and involvement of the congregants of the temple. "The
Social Action Committee" has been formed with the Durooseof
informing the congregation on social issues and stands, and
hopefully to then stimulate them into action. The committee is
ripen to all members of the Temple and they hope to join forces
with other Jewish groups in Tampa as "bigger forces always
seem to be more effective. Audrey says that this committee is
not planned as a study group. She wants it to be action oriented,
although there may be times when there will be a speaker and-or
discussion program. From now on, there will always be a Sociil
Action bulletin board and advocacy table displayed at the
temple and during most of its functions.
The Hillel Association at the University of South Florida has
a most fascinating program coming up on Mar. 28. Their
speaker will be Yeshayahu (Shaike) Tadmor who will speak on
Making Sense out of the Confusing Middle East." He was the
commander of the Military Institute for Education; head of the
information branch; and deputy chief of education in the IDF
Headquarters. He is currently director general of Israeli

Filling in Background
W. Bank Mayor, Council
Removed, Begin Signed Order
I- The elected mayor and
municipal council of El
Bireh, north of Jerusalem,
were removed from office
on grounds that they re-
fused to cooperate with the
Israeli civilian regime set
up on the West Bank late
last year by Defense Minis-
|ter Ariel Sharon.
The order ousting the local of-
9 was signed by Menachem
ililson who heads the civilian
ovemment. According to Israel
adio it was the first time Israel
has disbanded a municipal coun-
cil on the West Bank since it oc-
[cupied that territory in 1967.
THE OUSTER was followed
Yadin, Blum berg to

Regional Leaders
Herschel W. Blumberg of
Washington, D.C..National
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal, will join former Israeli
Deputy Prime Minister Yigael
Yadin, a member of Israel's
Knesset, on a coast-to-coast UJA
"VIP Tour" in March and April
to brief UJA regional leadership
on prospects for the peace
process in the Middle East
following Israel's withdrawal
from Sinai.
As part of their tour, Blumberg
and Yadin met with Florida s
Jewish leadership in Ft. Lauder-
by a violent demonstration in El
Bireh. Rocks were hurled at a bus
carrying Israeli troops, shatter-
ing the windshield. Several dem-
onstrators were arrested. Al-
though the El Bireh council was
replaced by one headed by an Is-
raeli officer from the civilian ad-
ministration, the deposed Mayor
Ibrahim Tawil declared that he
was still the legal mayor and that
the townspeople continue to
regard him and the council as
their duly elected leaders.
In Nablus, the largest city on
the West Bank, Mayor Bassam
Shaka announced a three-day
shut-down of all municipal offices
in protest against the Israeli
action in El Bireh. He vowed that
he and his town council would
never cooperate with the Israeli
civilian government.
The Defense Ministry issued a
statement saying that Tawil and
his colleagues were removed in
the interests of the citizens of El
Bireh who wre being adversely
affected by the municipality's
refusal to cooperate with the
civilian government.
THE ISRAELI move climaxed
10 days of sustained unrest on
the West Bank which spread to
the outer suburbs of Jerusalem.
Earlier this week, a bus was
stoned near the Jewish suburb of
Neve Yaacov and similar in-
cidents occurred on the roads
from Jerusalem to Bethlehem
and Hebron.

Israel's troubles on the West
Bank were compounded by
a series of defections by local
Arabs from the Village Leagues
after the Jordanian government
warned that they would be tried
in absentia for collaborating with
Israel and executed.
The Village Leagues were es-
tablished by Israel to counteract
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion influence on the West Bank.
Arabs prepared to cooperate with
Israel were given local functions
under the civilian regime and
their villages were supplied with
heads the Village Leagues in the
Hebron area, is trying to stem
the tide of defections. He met
with Eliahu Ben-Elissar, chair-
man of the Knesset Foreign Af-
fairs and Security Committee, to
urge more Israeli support for the
Reaction in Israel to the re-
moval of El Bireh's elected offici-
als was split along party lines.
Labor Party Secretary General
Haim Bariev accused the govern-
ment of heightening tension on
the West Bank instead of
defusing it.
But Likud MK Ronnie Milo
said the move was much less
harsh than what would have
occurred if there was no civilian
administration on the West Bank
and it was left to the Military
Government to remove an inept
local council.
MEANWHILE, Defense Min-
ister Ariel Sharon told a Herut
meeting in Tel Aviv that terror-
ists had carried out 15 acts of
sabotage in Israel and another
five in southern Lebanon during
the past two weeks.
He warned that Israel "might
be forced to take action" if such
attacks continued. He disclosed
that shellfire had been directed at
an Israeli naval vessel on patrol
off southern Lebanon, but it was
not hit.

in Bavaria and at least four are
registered in Lower Saxony. The
Bavarian neo-Nazis are based in

The Iraqi atomic reactor was destroyed by Is-

ment, according to a report in the London Sunday
Times, which quoted Italian technicians who were
working near the reactor-site at the time it was
blown up.
The report states that a small cadre of Israeli
agents infiltrated as technicians into the reactor
area itself and placed a large amount of explosives
which annihilated the facility. The agents, ac-
cording to the reported sources, were in radio con-
tact with the Israeli Air Force whose bombing
runs served merely as camouflage at the time the
explosives went off.

The Jewish group, acting under the Freedom of

amounts of funds on deposit in U.S. banks and
the amounts of Treasury bills owned or held by
each of the three Arab oil-producing states.
AJCongress charged that the growing size of
Arab investment in the United States is of "par-

increase in the influence by these three countries
over American foreign policy in the Middle East."
It added that information obtained on the size
and scope of such investments may form the basis
for recommending further legislation.

Holocaust Course
While there has been a Holo-
caust Course listed for the Fall
Semester, 1982, it is only recently
that the funding for the class was
approved. It is definite now that
during the first semester 82-83 at
USF, there will be a Holocaust
Course, again under the direction
of Dr. Charles Arnade. The first
semester runs from the end of
August to the middle of Decem-
ber. The class will meet Tuesdays
10 to 11 and Thursdays from 9 to
Dr. Arnade. originator of this
course and its director since its
inception, is very worried about
asking the same guest speakers
back for the third and fourth time
with no compensation whatever.
"1 feel that at least we must pay
for their mileage. They come from
long distances and are often on
campus for several hours. We are
speaking about Holocaust
survivors; they share very bitter
memories with us. and we are
unable to even provide lunch for
them while they are on campus. I
feel very badly about this."
Arnade went on to explain that
the University administration
felt the local Jewish community
might be able to provide the
trite path to Passover is through Purim. And Purim at HiUel School of
tTumpa had some very unusual costumes this year. "Preppie" William
Wall came to school with his "Alligator," Jenny Wall
money for this. He estimated
that $300 would cover all the ex-
penses involved.
"I teach a course about the
Holocaust. We study it as a
period representative of 'man's
inhumanity to man.' Yet, the
University administration still
sees it as a strictly Jewish
problem. This causes me many
problems." Arnade continued.
Hut the course will be given
and that, for a long time, was not
a certainty. Hopefully, the $300
will be forthcoming from the
Wiesenthal Lecture
We hesitated writing about
Simon Wiesenthal's appearance
on the University of South
Florida campus. How could we
write of this exciting evening
with over 3,000 in attendance to
hear the man known as the
Number One Hunter of Nazi War
Criminals, when the University
on which he spoke was in doubt
as to continuing to offer a course
on the I lolocaust?
With the announcement that
the course would be offered, the
dilemma was solved. And now we
can comfortably describe one of
the most thrilling evenings we've
experienced at USF' lectures.
This series has brought many
distinguished speakers such as
Moshe Dayan and Klie Weisel.
None have been any more ex-
citing to hear than Simon Wie-
senthal. II Iven though the sound
system for the gym made the
evening very difficult to hear.
Obviously the university did not
prepare the sound for a crown of
the magnitude which appeared.)
Ken Kichter, president of the
USF Student Government, who
introduced Wiesenthal, said his
concern in co-sponsoring this
event was that he might not
"draw." Speaking to a capacity
filled gymnasium, his worries
seemed in vain.
Never have we seen tighter se-
curity at the university. Every
handbag and briefcase brought
into the gym was checked. Wies-
enthal was surrounded by
security men on the dais, the
room was ringed with them and
they peered out of the glass booth
over the floor reminiscent of
Adolf Eichman in the glass booth
during his trial.
That comparison was ironic to
the point of humorous. Here was
the man responsible for Eich-
man's capture speaking from a
stage beneath a glass booth in
which the security men looking
out at the audience reminded us
of Eichman, the trial defendant.
"Who was there to remind us
of the millions who died under his
directives?" We wondered.
Simon Wiesenthal.

At his first trial, he was sen-

he appealed. At his second trial
he was acquitted, and at his third
trial, he was sentenced to nine
years of which he served six. A
young man from Paris came to
M him after his release and told
him, "For the death of my par-
ents you served seconds in jail!"

criminals has over 30,000 names
on it. Many men changed their
names and returned to marry
their own "widows" Wiesenthal
explained. Such a small number
were ever brought to trial, that is
why the work of Wiesenthal
continues. "These people are the
witnesses to what happened,"
said Wiesenthal. He reminded
the audience that nowhere in Eu-
rope is there a campaign that the
Holocaust did not happen. They
know differently. Only in the
United States is there such a
campaign- He stated that anti-
Semitic material printed in many

Of the \W i million members of
the Nazi party. Wiesenthal
estimates there are four million
alive today averaging 62-64 years
of age. With the erection of the
Iron Curtain, he estimates that
11.000.000 witnesses were lost
and hundreds of tons of Nazi
papers destroyed. He said there
was no cooperation from any
Communist country except Po-
land in the tracking of Nazi war
Speaking of his tracking of Dr.
Joseph Mengele. Wiesenthal said
these men and this man in partic-
ular must know that even 40
years after their crime and 10,000
miles away, they must face what
they did.
"The consequences of the Hol-
ocaust will be kept alive by two
generations." said Wiesenthal.

and by the generation which

The Wandering Jew
The Jewish Towern
When the temple was destroyed the people scattered,
Preserving the laws was all that mattered.
Jews followed their creed from birth to death.
Fervently praying with devoted breath
A variety of foreign tongues he knew
But always did he pray in Holy Hebrew.
In religion he referred to the authority of Rabbis.
By himself he did not undertake questions to surmise.
He followed the law of the land in which he dwelt,
Controversies he wished not to interpret himself.
Most diaspora Jews lived in tight knit communities.
Thus did they create self-made opportunities.
Synagogues always have held an honored place in Jewish life,
Where prayers and learning give a feeling of supreme delight.
Constant repetition of ritual plays a permanent part
In the lives of untold generations, coming from the heart.
Jews fled from country to country,
Trying not to lose their identity.
Thousands became Christian Converts,
Not wishing some countries to desert.
Exiles brought their knowledge and industry.
Where hosts permitted them to be:
In Amsterdam. Holland and Turkey some tolerance was found,
But also their intolerance did abound.
A continuous drama of settlement and expulsion,
I lisaster, then recovery sometimes did function
V\ elcomed lo Courts of Europe in the Middle Ages,
To help enrich the land with their acumen and their Sages.
For the Black Death were they blamed.
Forced to wear yellow badges of shame.
Many to Poland and Lithuania did roam,
Eventually becoming victims of merciless programs.
The dream remained constant to Zion to return,
And throughout wanderings this in their hearts did they yearn.
Some percentage of our kin have slipped away from the past.
Assimilated into the Gentile world makes one aghast.
Achievement and victory in spite of harassment.
The Jew will live on in his permanent establishment.
Wishes all of its friends and customers

Israeli Defense Minister to Address UJA National
Leadership Conference In Washington
General Ariel Sharon. Israel's
Minister of Defense, will address
the United Jewish Appeal
National Leadership Conference.
May 21-23. at the Sheraton
Washington Hotel in Washing-
ton. D.C.. UJA National Chair-
man Herschel Rlumberg an-
nounced today.
General Sharon will address
approximately 1,500 leaders of
the American Jewish community
at a special banquet Saturday
evening. May 22. less than one
month after Israel's historic
withdrawal from the Sinai under
the terms of the Camp David Ac-
cords. Rlumberg said.
The annual conference will
launch the 1983 UJA-community
campaign to help fund the life
sustaining and life-enhancing
humanitarian programs of the
Jewish Agency in Israel and the
American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee in 33 nations
worldwide, the UJA national
chairman noted.
The event also will mark an
important transition in UJA
leadership as Blumberg, national
chairman of the organization for
the past two years, turns over
direction of the annual campaign
to Robert E. Loup of Denver,
who will be installed at a special
No One in White House Cares Squadron
Howard Squadron, chair-
man of the Conference oi
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
believes there is no one in
the White House who
"really understands Is-
rael," appreciates its fears
and recognizes why it is
prepared to engage in pre-
emptive military strikes.
While "there is great sym-
pathy for Israel" in the Reagan
Administration, "there is no
comprehension that Israel is in
any real danger, and no willing-
ness to accept Israel's own evalu-
ation of its danger." Squadron
snid in an interview last Sunday
night on a radio-magazine pro-
gram hosted by Rabbi Mark
Golub on WMCA here.
seme of understanding to a lack
of "foreign policy experience" in
the White House. According to
Squadron, the only top level Ad-
ministration people who do un-
derstand these matters are Secre-
tary of State Alexander Haig and
Jeane Kirkpatrick, the U.S. Am-
bassador to the United Nations.
Squadron said there was an in-
creasing possibility that Israel
would launch a preemptive strike
into south Lebanon as the date
for its withdrawal from Sinai ap-
proaches because of the arms
buildup in Syria, possibly in
Jordan, and in southern Leba-
"That could happen, not be-
cause the Syrians attack, but be-
cause the Israelis decide that the
buildup of forces is so frighten-
ing, and that the United States
and the French and the British
and the Germans and whoever
else, by providing weapons to the
immediate Arab world surround-
ing Israel, are presenting such a
threat to Israel that Israel has to
do something," Squadron said.
HE SAID that if the Israelis
perceive that the U.S. cannot
defuse the situation, as with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion in south Lebanon, then the
U.S. will "have to expect the Is-
rnelis to do something about it
and they have to back them up,
not get worried about it."
On the other hand, "if the U.S.
was not accelerating the concerns
of the Israelis by supplying arms
and bv threatening to supply
more arms, it would be possible
for the U.S. to say to Israel.
'Don't take this action. We are
f;oing to see to it that nothing
comes of this'."
Squadron contended that there
are "many people" in the Penta-
gon who are "prepared to
disregard Israeli sensitivities .
who consider Israel not so much a

officials were reminded that
"New York City today numbers
among its citizens more survivors
of the Holocaust than any other
city in the world" but still lacks a
proper memorial to the victims 40
years after those events.
The need for a New York City
Holocaust Memorial Center that
would also serve archival and re-
search functions, was stressed by
Richard Herman, the New York
State Housing Commissioner,
and others who appeared at a
hearing of the Mayor's Holocaust

He accused Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger of nonveying
"t h;it Pentagon view to the
White House, because he's got a
close longtime personal relation-
ship with the White House peo-
ple." According to Squadron.
"What you have is foreign policy
being formulated both at the
Pentagon and at the State De-
partment with each of the formu-
l.iiinns having an equal opportu-
nity to become foreign policy."
Squadron also expressed the
view that while President Ilosni
Mubarak of Egypt will seek to
reestablish relations with the rest
of the Arab world, "he says he
will not do so under any circum-
stances at the expense of Camp
David of peace with Israel," and
"I do believe him."

Memorial Task Force here. Ber-
man appeared in his capacity as
chairman of the Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council's New
York Holocaust Commission.
The Holocaust Memorial Task
Force was established by Mayor
Edward Koch last July to deter-
mine what kind of memorial
should be created, where it
should be located and what it
would cost. The Task Force will
create a special committee to see
the project through.
Herbert Rickman, a special as-
sistant to the Mayor, stressed
that the memorial would not be
paid for out of city funds. "The
funding will come from the Jew-
ish community, the community
as a whole," he said,
Laborers employed by the Jewish
Agency, mostly Arabs, continue
to dismantle buildings and
equipment in farm settlements in
the Yamit region of northern
Sinai without incident. Soldiers
sent to protect the workers from
possible assaults by militants op-
posed to Israel's withdrawal from
I Sinai have little to do as green-
houses and farm implements at
Ugda village are disassembled for
relocation in Israel.
The Jewish Agency is concen-
trating its dismantling efforts on
Jewish settlements closest to the
Israeli border. They want every-
thing removed from that region
by Apr. 25, the Sinai pullout
deadline, so as not to facilitate
the settlement of Egyptian
civilians near the border.

,[ the United Nations for
between Israel and the
ts has long passed," she said.
3RDING TO the Ameri-
lenvoy, the atmosphere in the
fral Assembly indicates that
! objective is to isolate and
ate Israel and ultimately to
nine its political
v." She claimed that "a
secondary objective is to isolate
and undermine the United
States" and "a related objective
is to frighten away from associa-
tion with Israel any country
which might be disposed to be-
friend her."
Kirkpatrick drew an analogy
between the lynching in 1915, in
Georgia, of a Jew, Leo Frank, for
a murder he did not commit and
the "resurgence of anti-Semitism
in the world" today. She com-
pared the neutral nations to
Alonzo Mann, the 83-year-old
eyewitness who knew another
man had committed the crime for
which Frank was murdered, but
kept silent.
Kirkpatrick declared: "Like
Alonzo Mann, they are intimi-
dated. Perhaps they need oil, or
petrodollars, political and
economic support or are afraid
they'll be targeted by this and
that terrorist group."
THE ENVOY told the Agudat
Israel group: "We share com-
mon understandings and com-
mon values. We also share a con-
viction that what happens in the
UN matters to these common
values and understandings."
"The United Nations cannot
survive if it does not live by its
own rule, since membership is
supposed to be decided in the Se-
curity Council where the U.S. can
cast a veto," she said. She ex-
pressed doubt that the UN could
survive a "flagrant disregard of
its charter and constitution." She
also denounced the policies of the
Soviet Union toward Jews as "a
gross and persistent abuse of
human rights."
Another speaker, Dr. Seymour
Lachman, Dean and Professor of
History of Education at City
University, New York, said the
Reagan Administration's new
approaches to domestic, foreign
and defense policy were of deep
concern to the American Jewish
community and were making
them wonder whether the new
direction "was indeed working."
RABBI Menachem Lubinsky,
director of Government and
Public Affairs of the Agudath
Israel, urged the Administration
"to plan the national agenda as
part of a full partnership between
government and communities."
At a special awards ceremony,
Rabbi Moshe Sherer, president of
the Agudath Israel of America,
presented the organization's 1982
"New Horizons" award to
Anthony Gliedman, Commis-
sioner of the New York City De-

He was received royally in Are-
quipa, whose mayor is a Com-
munist, while in the northern city
of Piura, his presence and activ-
ity caused the maydr to resign.
HIS VISIT to Ayacucho, one
of the centers of national terror-
ism, was criticized by the news-
paper Opinion Libre, which said
that the PLO in Peru "is carrying
out 'unholy' activities before the
eyes of our authorities." It added
that the PLO has expressed a de-
sire to support "liberation move-
ments" in Latin America.
Various PLO materials are dis-
tributed by Communist groups in
the universities; some of them
use bulletin boards to purvey
PLO propaganda and virulent at-
tacks on Zionism and Israel.
For more than a year now,
there has been a daily transmis-
sion oh Radio Santa Rosa of "The
Palestinian Voice," a program
which spews out anti-Semitic
poison, splashed with songs and
words of support for the "move-
ments of national liberation in
Latin America."
Besseiso attended the festivi-
ties in the town of lea connected
with the grape harvest. He was
welcomed by the mayor of the
city and asked to sign the "Book
of Illustrious Guests." The PLO
was also invited to participate in
the XVII Congress of the Fed-
eration of Peruvian Students,
which took place in June at the
University of San Marcos.
Also worth mentioning is the
invitation by the orthodox Com-
munist Party to the PLO repre-
sentative in Lima, who spoke to
union leaders and was introduced
by Gustavo Espinoza, secretary
of international relations of the
Communist Party.
THERE IS no doubt that the
presence of the PLO in Peru is a
decisive factor in strengthening
anti-Semitism. In addition, there
are Nazi publications which incite
racial hatred Temple (Temper)
and Trinchera 88 (Trench 88). as
well as Communist newspapers
and ultra-leftist magazines which
promote terrorism and atUcks
against Israel and Zionism. The

Israel and the Zionist movement.

group stationed themselves at

"The Megillah tells us that we
must share our joy at this time of
the year with those less fortunate
than we," said Rabbi Leonard
Rosenthal. "Especially in
America, where we have such
abundance, we should take care

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
.. "And he shall bring forfeit unto the Lord for his sin, which
he hath sinned" (Lev. 5.61
YAYIKRA God called to Moses from the tent of meeting and
revealed the sacrificial laws. The bumt-offering was to consist
of a male animal without blemish; if it be a fowl, it was to bet
turtle-dove or a young pigeon The purpose of this offering,
which was to be completely burned, was to make atonement for
evil thoughts. The meal-offering was to consist of fine flour, raw,
cooked, or stewed, generally intended as a free-will offering. Th
peace-offering, of cattle or sheep, either male or female, was
another free-will offering, or vow, offered in the name of a family.
The sin-offering was intended to make amends for sins com-
mitted by error. Different categories of individuals and groups
were to sacrifice different animals for sin-offerings. The anointed
priest and the congregation offered a young bullock, the prince
of a he-goat, a common person a she-goat. The person who
touched an unclean object, or failed to keep a vow, must bring a
female lamb or a female goat for a sin-offering; and if he could
not afford either, he must bring two young pigeons or turtle-
doves the first as a burnt-offering, the second as a sin-offering
A ram served as a guilt-offering in the case of a violation of a
negative {"Thou shaft not") commandment, or in cases of theft
of articles set aside as holy.

New Soviet Edition
On Life of Mikhoels
TEL AVIV Natalia and
Nina Mikhoels. daughters of the
late Shlomo Mikhoels. the
famous Russian Yiddish actor
murdered on the direct orders of
Stalin nearly 30 years ago, have
received a copy of a new edition
of a Russian book on their father.
The first edition of "Mikhoels"
was published in 1965. No reason
has been given for the sudden
publication of a new edition, with
many photographs to accompany
the series of articles on Mikhoels'
life and artistic career as director
and leading actor of the Moscow
Yiddish Theater.
But Russian immigrants to Is-
rael believed it is an attempt on
the part of the Soviet authorities
to prove to Western critics that
the Soviet Union is not anti-Jew-
ish. Mikhoels' daughters said the
editor of the official Russian book
had hand-written a cordial dedi-
cation and greetings to them.
Fast Day Decreed To
Mark Sinai Exit
Rabbinate Council decreed
Wednesday that a fast day would

withdrawal from Sinai and to
pray that the government "con-

this respect. But the Council
stopped short of actually oppos-
Israeli Soldiers Break
Down Barricades in Sinai;
Remove Militants
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
soldiers broke down barricaded
doors and forcibly removed kick-
ing, screaming militants from
huildings they had occupied in
Hatzar Adar village in the Yamit
area of northern Sinai. The
operation, to evacuate illegal
squatters of the movement to
block Israel's withdrawal from
j>mai which must be returned to
Egypt on Apr. 25. began last
week and was suspended for
several days. Many if not most of
the militants removed earlier,
managed to evade roadblocks
and return.
About 50 young men and
*omen, accompanied by MK
^eula Cohen of the ultra-
nationalist Tehiya faction, began
repairing houses in Hatzar Adar
and planting trees. Soldiers en-
ured the village urging the
squatters to leave peacefully. But
e plea by a senior officer was
: rejected.
I^ soldiers were slightly in-
J""*1 M they carried struggling
PruSt0rs' one by one, out of the
jouiidings and into waiting buses.
The troops were unarmed.
Women soldiers had the task of
carrying our women protestors.
The militants, mostly Orthodox
Jews, shouted at the soldiers to
disobey their orders because set-
tlement was a "holy task."
In another development. Lt.
Gen. Frederik Bull-Hansen of
Norwav. who will command the
2.600-man international peace-
keeping force in Sinai after Is-
rael's withdrawal, arrived in Tel
Aviv. He joined an advance
guard of 300 members of the unit,
known officially as the multi-
national Force and Observers
(MFO), that arrived here earlier
to oversee the Israeli withdrawal
and the demilitarization provi-
sions of the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty.
Bull-Hansen stressed to re-
porters that the MFO was not a
fighting force, thoh his men had
the right to use force to defend
themselves. He noted that a bat-
talion of American soldiers from
the 82nd Airborne Division, part
of the US. Rapid Deployment
Force, would not be diverted
from its duties in Sinai to rejoin
that force. The entire MFO was
due to be in place by Mar. 20.

Scientists Warn Against

just issued, that the construction

clusively on "Caramel," the code

build atomic weapons.
The report was released to the
press by Georges Amsel, a senior

prominent scientists, including
another expert on nuclear phy-
sics. The five conducted their re-

Druze Town Placed
Under Army Curfew
TEL AVIV The Israeli
army has imposed a curfew on
the Druze town of Majdal Shams
on the Golan Heights. It was
only the second time since Israel
captured the Golan in 1967 that a
Druze town was placed under
curfew. According to the army,
the measure was intended as
punishment for demonstrations
at Majdal Shams to protest the
sealing-off of that town and the
three other Druze villages on the
Heights since last month.
The Golan Druze are in the
fourth week of a general strike
aimed against Israel's annexa-
tion of the territory and the ar-
rests of the leaders of the largest
Druze clans who refused to ac-
cept Israeli identity cards. The
demonstration in Majdal Shams
reportedly touched off sympathy

parts of the West Bank.

Leo Mindlin
A Dubliner's Jewish Obsession
I AM indebted to William K.
Robertson, book editor of the
Miami Herald, for reminding us
all that this is the centenary of
the birth of James Joyce, the
Irish novelist. My own inclina-
tion is to be less sensitive to
Joyce's birthday than to June 16,
1904, the date on which the
mythic voyages in Dublin took
place of Stephen Dedalus, Leop
old Bloom, R lazes Boy Ian, Bucl
Mulligan and that whole cast of
smitten characters in the Joyce
masterpiece, "Ulysses."
It is not that I am unique to
this inclination. The whole world
celebrates June 16, 1904, better
known as Bloom's Day. I recall
emerging from the campus of the
University of Bonn several years
ago to arrive at a bookstore
across the street called Bouvier's,
whose windows in honor of
Bloom's Day were filled with
German-language translations of
Joyce's novels, as well as
scholarly dissertations on the
nature and meaning of Joyce's
PERFORMING, right out
there on the sidewalk, with Bou-
vier's windows as backdrop, was
a crew of actors reading passage;
from "Ulvsscs." The same read
ings were occurring simuitane
ously on the streets of cities
throughout the western world. It
is, by now, an old custom. Th<
obsession with "Bloom's Day" is,
as I say. universal. For Robert-
son, his Sunday column took the
form of an interview with the dis-
tinguished Joyce scholar,
Richard Ellman. who lectured
several weeks ago at a Florida
Atlantic University Conference
on the Fantastic in the Arts.
From Joyce to the fantastic is
one easy hop because Joyce was
single-handedly responsible for
changing the characteristics of
the traditional novel in the 20th
Century. For the standard quali-
ties of plot, character, setting and
theme, he substituted the interior
monologue of the silently wan
dering human consciousness t.
development he puckishly at
tributed not so much to himself
as to the influence on him of the
otherwise unknown French
novelist, Edouard Dujardin. And
instead of the traditional
narrative style of the novel,
Joyce gave us the multi-layered
perception of the simultaneous
experience by which all things
occur at once, indeed, precisely as
they do in real life.
What Joyce "simply" did was
to magnify the simultaneous
experience so that the internal
and external, each given equal
consideration, could be perceived
by the reader at the same time
and as from the point of view that
they are opposite sides of the
same coin.
it is this revolution in nar
rative style style that has
made Joyce so forbidding
to most readers this and
the fact that the simultaneous
experience, to be described in
detail, requires on the part of the
writer to write it, and the reader
to read it, a good deal of time,
and so it no longer seems to be a
simultaneous experience appre-
hended in an instant.
Understood in these terms, the
internal and external appear to be
f two separate things, even though
they are not. Add to this the in-
credible scholarship demanded
from the reader, and you have all
the reasons why Joyce is not a
casual or even a careful reader's
delight so much as it is a course
in a college classroom.
Ancillary to these considera-
tions is that internal experience
suggests modern psychoanalysis
and more so Jung than Freud.
For example, Joyce characterizes
Anna Li via Plura belle in "Fin-
negans Wake" as "Jung and
Freudened," both young and full
of joy. ,
Still, Jung comes first, and for
the reason that the Jungian racial
unconscious opens the way to
mythic experience, or history
filtered through the perceptions,
conscious and unconscious, of the
millenial generations. It is this
development in the modem novel
which is Joyce's dominant con-
tribution to contemporary
literature, a fact perceived as
early as in 1923 by the poet. T. S.
F.liot, in his essay, "Ulysses,
Order and Myth."
WHAT THE professors and
the poets, Ellman included, have
failed to focus upon is Joyce's ob-
session with Jews. The most
potent example of this is Leopold
Bloom, himself, the hero of
"Ulysses"; it is not Stephen
Dedalus, who is the hero, the in-
carnation of James Joyce, who is
introduced to us in "Portrait of
the Artist as a Young Man," and
who in "Ulysses" has briefly re-
turned to Dublin from Paris to be
at his mother's deathbed.
Joyce perceives Bloom as the
eternal, wandering Jew, the
victim not just of what he calls a
"priest-ridden" Ireland, but of all
of Christendom, which Joyce
himself rejected in the same way
that Kafka rejected his Judaism,
as a young man.
On one level, Bloom wanders
through Dublin on June 16, 1904
in the same way that the Ulysses
of Homer wandered in the
"Odyssey" from Troy back to
Ithaca. But it is an improbable
parallel, as all the Homeric paral-
lels in the novel are improbable,
even absurd.
BUT IN FACT Bloom is not
young and handsome the way
Ulysses was. He is not envied by
others. His wife, Molly, is not
Penelope, though she is cast in
that role, if for no other reason
than that she is constantly un-
faithful to him. As a Jew, Bloom
is not admired, but rather reviled
by his fellow-Dubliners.
He escapes a fateful encounter
with diners in a restaurant when,
responding to an anti-Semitic
attack, he proudly reminds
them of all the important Jews
throughout history, including
Jesus as Christos, the Messiah,
the Christian god. Only by the
good graces of Elijah the
Prophet, who rescues him in the
nick of time on a chariot
descended from heaven, and
raising them both back to whence
Elijah came "like a shot off a
shovel," does he escape the wrath
of the mob.
Bloom wanders through his
Bloomusalem, an obvious pun on
Jerusalem, isolated and held L
contempt despite the fact that it
is he who is far more humane,
more sensitive, more intelligent
than any of his enemies. Joyce as
Stephen Dedalus, responding to
one vicious anti-Semite, the
schoolmaster, Mr. Deasy, thinks
of the Jews of history when Mr.
Deasy says of them that the Jews
"sinned against the light" and
that England is in the hands of
the jews (sic>. In all the highest
places: her finance, her press.
And they are the signs of a
nation's decay ."
SAYS DEDALUS in defense:
"On the steps of the Paris Stock
Exchange the gold-skinned men
quoting prices on their gemmed
fingers. Gabbles of geese. They
swarmed loud, uncouth about the
temple, their heads thickplotting
under maladroit silk hats. Not
theirs: these clothes, this speech,
these gestures. Their full slow
eyes belied the words, the ges-
tures eager and unoffending, but
knew the rancours massed about
them and knew their zeal was
vain. Vain patience to heap and
hoard. Time surely would scatter
all. A hoard heaped by the road-
side: plundered and passing on.
Their eyes knew the years of
wandering and, patient, knew the
dishonors of their flesh.
The Jew. in Joyce's eyes, is a
victim of Christian bigotry
prec.eelv as Bloom is a victim ot
=the "priest-ridden" Dubhners. ,
Wandering through the city, ne

tional Fund-type placards in

Essentially an assimilated
Jew, he understands little of the
Zionist dream, but it helps him in
the agony of his isolation.
Limned in these terms, he
becomes a symbol for all of 20th
Century secularized (assimilated)
mankind Isolated from the re-
vealed word of God, overwhelmed
instead by the new word of his
scientific knowledge.
Jews extends to Bella Cohen, the
brothel-keeper in "Circe," an
episode in "Ulysses," the Jewish
madame on Mecklenburg Street,
whose professional staff includes
the prostitute, Florry Talbot,
fashioned after the real Dubliner
he once knew, Fleury Crawford.
All three evoke the Jewish pros-
titute in "Portrait of the Artist"
whom Stephen Dedalus visits for
his initiating sexual experience in
"Portrait." The implication is
clear: if one must visit a prosti-
tute, it is best to visit a Jewish
prostitute, who would be en-
dowed with all the sensitivities to
which young Stephen himself,
the emerging artist, is heir.
In the "Dubliners," a collec-
tion of short stories originally
intended by Joyce to end with a
story about the Dublin Jew, Leo-
pold Bloom, which got out of
hand and became "Ulysses,"
there is a vignette of Little Chan-
dler in the piece, "Little
Cloud." Little Chandler is a frus-
trated poet who thinks with
regret and even horror of his
marriage and infant child. He
secretly regards both as the
sources of his failure. Ruminating
upon a framed photograph of his
wife, he sees her as exotic and
reminiscent of some magnetic,
sensitive Jewess; it was these
qualities in her that seduced him
into marriage in the first place.
In a story he never intended for
publication, but which his wife,
Nora Barnacle, somehow rescued
in the same way that she rescued
"Stephen Hero," the Urtext of
the "Portrait," from the fireplace
into which he threw it, Joyce
immortalizes a student of his in
one of the numerous Berlitz lan-
guage schools in which he taught
in Europe in order to earn a
living. Amalia Popper was the
daughter of a Jewish business-
man whose first name was Leo-
poldo One need not be prodded
too persistently to recall Leopold
Bloom in memoriam to him.
Amalia: "He (Joyce) envisions*
her as a Jewess come out of the
dark East to hold his Eastern
blood in thrall." She is "rounded
and ripened: rounded by the
lathe of intermarriage and
ripened in the forcing-house of
the seclusion of her race." In
short, Amalia is the prototype of
Little Chandler's wife, of the
prostitutes in "Portrait" and
"Ulysses." They are isolated by
the contempt of a Christian
world, like Bloom himself, but
sensitive, sensuous and superior.
For the Jews, there is mainly in
Joyce's mind a correlation with
suicide a wonderment that a
racial Armaggedon, despite
Christianity's most virulent ef-
forts to exterminate them, never
did occur. Bloom's father. Vierag,
the Hungarian Jew, committed
suicide, which prompts him to
think obsessively throughout the
day of June 16, 1904 of his own
son, Rudi, who died at age 11
days. Bloom swims through the
simultaneous experience of his
internal consciousness noting
that'Hast of my race."
In "Giacomo Joyce," intended
to remind the reader that he him-
self is Jacques Casanova, the
great lover, Joyce immortalizes
his wife by giving Amalia Popper
the name. Nora, a rather dubious
medal to Nora Barnacle Joyce for
his own adultery-

sion with Jews occurs in "Gia-

Egypt Eases Way for Tourists
Interested in Visiting Israel
The Egyptian authorities are re-
moving some of the obstacles in
the way of Egyptian tourists in-
terested in visiting Israel. As a
result, according to Moshe Cas-
suU), head of the Israel Govern-
ment Tourist Office in Cairo, be-
tween 5,000 to 10,000 Egyptians
may come to Israel this year, a
major increase though still far
less than the number of Israelis
who have visited Egypt.
Cassuto disclosed in weekend
press interviews that the Egyp-
tian authorities are now issuing
second passports to Egyptian
citizens, obtainable within 2 to 4
weeks. The purpose is J
having Israeli entry sta
their original passport
would prevent them front,

Israeli Ambassador Moshe Arens
declared here that there is con-
cern in Israel about the growing
perception among the Arab
states that they can continue to
receive United States arms and
other aid while continuing a
policy of belligerency to Israel."
Arens told the more than 1,500
persons from across the country
attending the third annual
United Jewish Appeal Young
Leadership Conference that it is
his job as Ambassador to reverse
this perception. He said the U.S.
Mideast policy has always been
based on a strong Israel and a
U.S.-Israeli "partnership."
In response to Arens, Steven
Greenberg of metropolitan New
Jersey, co-chairman of the
conference sponsored by the UJA
Young Leadership Cabinet and
Young Women's Cabinet, said
the participants would go back
knowing the necessity to con-
vince the American public that
