Stuart Lewengrub, regional
director of the Anti-Defamation

quoted by Goldgar as saying: "I
still believe that of all the villains
in this tragedy, the one who was
most malicious and bears the
greatest responsibility for the
(court) verdict and the lynching
was Tom Watson. And it is a
shame that his statue is so pro-
minently displayed at the capital.
It is a monument to the kind of
racial and religious bigotry which
hopefully is a thing of the past."

the fears, hatreds and prejudices
to bring about the frenzy of anti-
Semitism" that swept through
I his city following the murder of
I'hagnn. Goldgar wrote.
SHERRY FRANK, director of
the American Jewish Committee
chapter here, said she was
"relieved that this historic injus-
tice is being rectified." She added
that the Nashville Tennessean's
"endless pursuit of truth" chal-
lenges "leaders throughout our
state to clear Leo Frank's name
once and for all." Rabbi Alvin
Sugarman of the Temple, of
which Leo Frank's uncle, Moses
Frank, had been a founder, was
"Even though it is years late in
coming, Mann has come forward
and shown his worth as a human
being ... he has chosen not to go
to his grave holding back some-
thing that works for justice,
namely, the truth."
In their first public appearance
since breaking the story in a 10-
page special news section under
the headline, "An Innocent Man
Was Lynched," reporters
Thompson and Sherborne
recounted details of their inves-
tigation at a meeting of the
AJCommittee Atlanta chapter.
Thompson explained that the
story was significant to a news-
paper in Nashville, far removed
from Atlanta, because a number
of events were shaped by the
tragedy: the rise of the KKK;
the formation of the ADL; Hugh
Dorsey. the prosecutor of Leo
Frank, went on to become gov-
ernor of Georgia; and Watson's
political power increased, and he
rode the wave to a seat in the
U.S. Senate.
FROM THE tragedy, Thomp-
son continued, the political career
of Gov. John Slaton, who com-
muted Frank's sentence, was
sacrified, and he was driven from
Atlanta for many years. Thomp-
son likened the mob which
marched on the governor's
mansion after he commuted
Frank's sentence to picture* he
has seen of Kristallnacht in Nazi
Germany. Goldgar reported.
$710,000 Committed to TJF
UJA Campaign
Congressman lorn Lantos (D..
Calif.) cantivated a capacity
turnout of community leaders
Saturday evening attending the
1982 Tampa Jewish Federation
United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign Dinner held at the Marriott
Commitments made at the din-
ner swelled the 1982 result to
over $710,000, George Karpay.
general campaign chairman re-
ported. Lantos. accompanied by
his wife, Annette, challenged the
Tampa Jewish Community and
American Jewry in general to
"wake up and look around at
what is happening before it is too
late. We are deluding ourselves
about Israel and still think in
terms of 1948-1973 when the
world still had guilt pangs about
the Holocaust."
Lantos was very direct by
painting a picture of what the
American Jewish Community
will face in the months and years
ahead including criticism of the
U.S. Government's course of
"appeasement." He pointed out
that Saudi Arabia alone has an
income of over $300 million per
day. Thus in one day, Saudi
Arabia earns more than the total
American Jewish Community
gave to Israel last year. Lantos is
currently facing a well financed
overtly anti-Semitic campaign for
reelection in his home community
of San Mateo, Calif.
Karpay closed the program
portion of the evening urging the
Tampa Community to heed the
Congressman's words. He
pointed out that the response to
the United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign by the American Jewish
Community is carefully moni-
tored by our government and
now is the time to show our in-
creased commitment to the peo-
ple of Israel. Karpay also an-
nounced that the 1982 Campaign
will conclude on Apr. 30.
Linda Blum, dinner chairman,
chaired the evening program and
welcomed over 150 guests who
made commitments to the 1982
Campaign of $1,000 and over.
Cantor William Hauben of Con-
gregation Rodeph Shalom led the
singing of the Star Spangled
Banner and Hatikvah. Rabbi
Leonard Rosenthal of Congrega-
tion Kol Ami delivered the invo-
carion. Iis Older, chairman of
the Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division Campaign
spoke on behalf of the community
and Women's Division, and Hope
Barnett. Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion president, delivered a stir-
ring introduction of Congress-
man Lantos, the only survivor of
the Holocaust elected to the U.S.
Many comments in praise of
the evenings festivities were
heard and there was unanimous
agreement that Congressman
Lantos' message was one of the
most important ever presented in

While all the congregations ro-
tate hosting this service, it is the
first time for Congregation Kol
Ami since it has just this year
moved into its permanent home
at 3919 Moran Road. Rabbi
Leonard Rosenthal, Congrega-

deliver the sermon on "The
Plight of Soviet Jewry." Rabbi
Frank Sundheim. Congregation
Schaarai Zedek, will also partici-
pate in the service.
"This service is being dedi-
cated to Soviet Jewry," said
Rabbi Rosenthal. "It is par-
ticularly meaningful when related
to the days of Jewish enslave-
ment in Egypt. Here is a modern
story of Jews being held captive

Rabbi Kenneth Berger will de-

There will be a special Onag

Price for Peace:
917 Billion
- With Israel's final with-
drawal from Sinai now just
one month away, Israeli of-
ficials believe the time is
right to emphasize, once
again, the huge assets and
benefits that Israel is for.
feiting in the peninsula as
its price for peace.
This emphasis is especially
relevant, they feel, in view of the
increasingly common image of
Israel abroad as tough and in-
transigent. People in the United
States and elsewhere should be
reminded, say the Israeli offi-
cials, of the enormous concession
Israel has made by handing back
to Egypt the strategic and
economic assets represented in
ren and largely uninhabited area
Sinai is an ideal staging ground
for the deployment and move
ment of large armored forces. Is-
rael's brief history proves that
Egypt has been able to take ad-
vantage of the open spaces in
Sinai in order to prepare and
launch attacks on Israel.
The crucial value of the penin-
sula as a buffer zone was
dramatically demonstrated in the
Yom Kippur War when the Israel
Defense Force managed to with-
stand the Egyptian onslaught
despite the worst possible con-
ditions of surprise and unreadi-
nessuntil reserve reinforce-
ments could be mobilized and de-
Israel has argued since then
that had the Egyptian strike
been launched from the old
and now new international
borderline, the massive tank bat-
tles would have had to be fought
in the very heart of Israel's popu-
lated areas, with casualties im-
measurably higher and the ulti-
mate repulse of the invading
forces far from assured.
ALSO UNDER the heading of
major strategic concessions in
Sinai. Israeli officials refer to the
ceding of eight airfields in the
peninsula, two of them among
the most sophisticated in the
Middle East. In addition, there
are the electronic early warning
stations on the Sinai mountains
and the naval base at Ophira. The
lack of Ophira, according to these
officials, must impair Israel's
ability to protect its merchant
shipping to and from Eilat.
The return of Sinai to Egypt
entails, too, enormous economic
expenditure, say the officials. Is-
rael has made huge investments
in the peninsula, in oil and other
infrastructure, that cannot be re-
covered. In addition, the reloca-
tion of military facilities and of
the Jewish settlers has proved tc

For the more than 130 students in grades one through
eight at the Hillel School of Tampa, Jewish traditions in life,
synagogue skills and values are daily experiences. This
joint effort of faculty and students to transmit, re-create and
nourish the acquisition of knowledge is an on-going and
ever-changing process.
Formal classes in Prayer, Bible, Jewish life, Religious Practice, Israel, and Modern
Hebrew language meet daily. The amazing and impressive sight of young primary
level students conducting weekday religious services along with their older peers
each morning, and routinely performing mitzvot ("good deeds") are daily miracles.
These accomplishments are not limited soley to weekdays. Hillel students read
Torah at several Tampa synagogues during Shabbat mornings and at early-hour
minyon services.
Students at Hillel enjoy social and cultural activities with other Jewish young
people and adults. In experiencing tree-Dlantinas, family shabbatons, seders. Purim
and other holiday services and activities, they acquire learnings that broaden their
knowledge and deepen meanings. In this way. the Judaic studies curriculum
becomes a living process, and students look forward to the varied observances and
opportunities to participate.
At the Hillel School the general studies curriculum reflects consideration and
coordination of the secular with the Judaic program. Art, music and language skills
are realized through relevant activities incorporating school philosophy and goals.
The social studies, science and math programs emphasize individual needs and
Being a Jew in a basically non-Jewish society and developing secune feelings
about it is a serious concern addressed by faculty, staff, and students. A unique ser-
vice to younger schoolmates is provided by the Peer facilitators at Hillel. These
specifically selected youngsters work closely with younger students on
strengthening self-concepts and other positive social attitudes.
We are equally proud the parents of Hillel students add to their children's well-
rounded development by exploring leisure-time interests and needs. Gratifying
recognition has been earned by our students in after-school sports, art and music,
youth and scouting groups, as well as in academic or scholarly competitions in the
larger community.
One must visit to feel the esprit de corps. There is a sense of pride and a striving
to achieve. The hope is that high moral and ethical conduct and a commitment to the
Jewish community will emerge as traditions of learning and living at the Hillel School
of Tampa. For further information about how Hillel School can fit into your child's
life, call us at 839-7047. i+~~*.m*T^

Optimistic Expectations
The prospect of violence is forbidding under any cir-
cumstances. When it occurs in any part of Israel, it
becomes something from which we want to turn
away. Only we can't. Israel's problem in Judea and
Samaria becomes ours.
We are heartened by Ambassador Moshe Arens'
statement that there is no doubt that Judea and
Samaria are \ an inevitable and integral part of the
Jewish State.
And that the present violence on what the general
press calls the West Bank is largely the result of mis-
chievous pressures by the Palestine Liberation
Organization and Yasir Arafat who, in this instance,
according to Secretary of State Alexander Haig, ap-
pear to be aided and abetted by Jordan's King Hus-
We are heartened by this last because, as Ambas-
sador Arens told us in an interview this week, the
violence is the PLO's "last ditch stand" in the face of
the inevitable.
, Still, this leaves Israel with the uncomfortable
problem of what to do about autonomy once it with-
draws from the Sinai on Apr. 25. If Egypt's Presi-
dent Mubarak has been difficult about that issue up
until now, there is little hope that he will be any less
so once the Sinai is returned to him in toto.
Congratulations in Order
We congratulate Rep. Elaine Gordon (D., North
Miami Beach) on the occasion of the passing of her
bill in Tallahassee making it a felony of the third
du gretu damaBe or deface any place of religious wor-
ship. The bill became law when it was signed by Gov.
Bob Graham on Mar. 15.
Now, it is no longer a simple misdemeanor to wil-
fully and maliciously damage the property of a
church, a synagogue or a mosque.
We agree with Rep. Gordon that by making such
acts a felony, Florida helps to assure the fact that the
incidence of this sort of criminal behavior will be sig-
nificantly reduced.
Perhaps Rep. Gordon is a bit too optimistic when
she offers the hope that in time such felonies will be
eliminated altogether. But, by her efforts, Florida
has gone on record that it will no longer release with
a mere vague slap on the wrist those ugly bigots who
do such hideous things.

'Hit List9 Brings Security
Forces for Jewish' Institutions
BONN (JTA) Security
measures were tightened around
Jewish institutions throughout
West Germany following the cir-
culation of an neo-Nazi "hit-list"
naming 112 Jewish personalities
or Jewish-owned businesses as
possible targets for terrorist acts.
Most of the targets 95 are
located in Austria and the rest in
West Germany.
The list reportedly has ap-
peared in Vienna, Munich and
Hanau. The Interior Ministry in
Bonn first learned of it from the
Munich-based Pressedienst
Demokratische Initiativ. A
Ministry spokesman said the
authorities had no information of
their own but were taking the
matter seriously.
According to the Ministry, the
list was originally appended to an
edition of the Austrian Observer,
a neo-Nazi newspaper owned by
the National Socialist Party of
Austria. It contained five ad-
dresses in Frankfurt and other
cities and in West Berlin.

JCC Pre-School to
Present Art Sales
As part of its major fund rais-
ing activities for the year, the
preschool parent group is hold-
ing two art sales. The fust will be
held at the center on Sunday,
Apr. 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. in
conjunction with the center's
Family Fun Day. The second art
sale will be at the home of Sam
and Carol Weinstein, in Carrol-
wood Village, on Saturday, May
15. from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Anyone wishing to attend the

pool, the pride and joy of the
JCC, will be totally resurfaced
and retiled. The JCC tennis
courts will be completely reno-
vated, and the grounds will have
a newly installed sprinkler
system to go with the new sod.
The fences around the pool
area will have a new look, no
more blue canvas, but in its place
a beautiful hedge is being planted
around the entire area.
The Board of Directors of the
JCC has taken out a loan to do all
of these much needed major im-
provements. According to
Sharon Mock, JCC president,
"This is just one more step in our
continuing effort to upgrade and
beautify our center. We welcome
any donations to help pay for
these improvements or to do
additional projects."

ality which, it seemed,
egin and his aides failed

In bald terms, this waa the
jeatened rebellion of the three
nail coalition parties the Na-
onal Religious Party. Aguda Is-
kel and Tami. Begin had said be-
|>re the Knesset vote took place
at he would resign if there was
tie vote because it would
deprive his coalition government
of its moral mandate. Immedi-
ately after the vote the Premier
called an emergency session of
the Cabinet to tender his resigna-
tion, but the Cabinet rejected his
move by a vote of 12-6.

Likud leaders seemed to think
} Lthe Premier'9 resignation,
and the automatic fall of the gov-
ernment, would trigger new
elections later this year, the coa-
lition partners plainly did not
share this prognosis. Nor did
they share Likud's interest in
early elections, and they made
that exceedingly clear to Begin
during that late-night extraor-
dinary Cabinet session.
Yosef Bur*, the veteran NRP
leader, indicated that if Begin
implemented his threat to resign
because of the tied vote, when
.. But Begin Says Early Elections

there was no constitutional
necessity for him to do so, the
NRP would be "open" to other
ways of staving off early elec-
tions. This meant, of course,
forming an alternative coalition
with Labor.
Avraham Shapiro, the Aguda
Knesset leader, gave similar
hints. When Begin noted that the
NRP and Aguda had pledged be-
fore the 1981 election not to align
with Labor against Likud,
Shapiro remarked pointedly that
he "wouldn't build on such pro-

leader of the three man Tami
Party, spoke strongly against
Begin resigning at this time. He
said it was the Premier's historic
national responsibility to carry
through the Sinai withdrawal and
stabilize relations with Egypt in
the subsequent period.
Between the lines, Cabinet
insiders read a readiness on Abu-
Hatzeira's part, too, to switch his
allegiance to Labor in order to set
up an alternative government
and avoid early elections.
Likud ministers found them-
selves looking into a chasm: De-
feat and opposition stared back
at them. Begin, apparently
sensing the new political reality
shaping up, indicated that he
would after all allow himself to be
persuaded by a majority of the
Cabinet not to resign.
A Cabinet source said later
that had Begin remained
adamant and gone to the Presi-
dent, "a government under
Shimon Peres would have been
functioning within a week."
THE SOURCE reasoned that
Labor would simply give the
same undertakings and pledges
to the religious parties as Begin
had signed last year, justifying
this to its constituency by the
overriding need to remove Begin
and set up an alternative govern-

the coalition fold, and possibly
even Tehiya will be prepared to
cooperate with the government
against the centrist-leftist Knes-
set opposition instead of teaming
up with the opposition.
But there were other voices
within the coalition predicting
elections by the fall or at the

Powerful Bombs Explode Outside Jewish Shops
By JTA Report
ROME Two powerful
bombs exploded Saturday night
outside Jewish-owned shops in
the center of the city, causing
severe damage but no casualties.
A third bomb found outside the
El Al office in Rome was defused
by sappers before it detonated.
Police sources said leaflets found
at the site of the bombings indi-
cated that they were the work of
Palestinian organizations in re-
taliation for "Israeli violence on
the West Bank."
EEC to Condemn
Israel on West Bank
BRUSSELS Leaders from
the 10-member European
Economic Community are ex-
pected to condemn Israel at their
current summit meeting here but
will refrain from calling for sanc-
tions against Israel or from issu-
ing a new joint diplomatic initia-
tive in the Middle East.
The 10 West European leaders
include President Francois Mit-
terrand of France, Prime Minis-
ter Margaret Thatcher of Britain
and Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
of West Germany.
The EEC has twice in the past,
in Venice in June, 1980 and again
in Luxembourg last December,
adopted joint statements of
policy or the Middle East. This
year, diplomatic sources say,
Mitterrand has called on his
West European partners to re-
frain from any new initiative
which, the French believe, could
only serve to accentuate tensions
in the area and hurt the Israeli
Egyptian peace treaty.
Meanwhile. 21 Arab states
have called on the European
leaders to vigorously condemn
"Israeli terror." The Arab states,
in a cable addressed to the 10
EEC leaders said "verbal con-
demnations are no longer suf-
ficient. "
Anti-Semitism Center
Headed by N.Y. Prof.
BONN The Technical Uni-
versity of West Berlin's Anti-
Semitism Research Center is to
be headed by Prof. Herbert
Strauss of the City University of
New York. Strauss, an expert on
German Jewish history, is ex-
pected to take up his new post
sometime this summer, according
lo an announcement by the uni-
Horn in Wuerzburg (Bavaria)
in 1918, Strauss later became an
assistant to Leo Baeck, one of
Herman Jewry's spiritual leaders
during the Nazi period. During
World War II he escaped to
Switzerland and earned his Ph D
in 1916 at the University of Bern.
Strauss then came to the
United States and taught at
Columbia University and the
New School of Social Research
before moving to City College in
I960. Since 1964 he has served as
the executive director of the
American Federation of Jews
from Central Europe.
Deportation Anniversary
01 French Jews Noted
PARIS Two ceremonies
"^marked the 40th anniversary
the first Nazi organized depor
tation of France's Jews to the
aeath camps of Eastern Europe.
feW0 P**1* including
'1.000 chddren and infanta, less
than three percent of whom sur-
vived, were deported aboard 72
death trains which left France for
Nazioccupied Poland.
Several hundred people, in-
cluding France', Chief Rabbi
Kene Samuel Sirat, Mayor
Jcques Chirac of Park and
Hresidental Advieer Jacques
Attali. gathered on the site of the
unmcy camp, where the Jews
were held before their deporta-
tion, and at the Rovallieu railway .
station from which the first death
train left on March 27, 1942 with
1,112 Jews aboard.
Israel's 'Sacrifices'
Stressed Nationally
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations
has embarked on a nationwide
campaign to underscore Israel's
"major sacrifices for peace" and
to protest current Administration
policies in the Middle East that
could damage the peace process
and imperil U.S. strategic in-
terests in the region.
Howard Squadron, Conference
chairman, said seven regional
meetings had been scheduled at
which current concerns of the
Presidents Conference over the
"dangerous drift in U.S. policy"
would be explored. These meet-
ings will culminate in a National
Leadership Conference, high-
lighting the dangers confronting
Israel, now being planned for
Apr. 20 in Washington.
Australia Foreign Minister
On Visit to Israel
TEL AVIV Foreign Minis-
ter Anthony Street of Australia
praised the "courage of the Is-
raeli people" upon his arrival
here. His brief visit to Israel in-
cluded meetings with President
Yitzhak Navon and government
officials and a visit to the
Australian members of the Sinai
peace-keeping force.
Upon his arrival at Ben Gurion
Airport, Street told reporters:
"Australia is proud of its asso-
ciation from the beginning with
the creation of the State of Israel,
and your security is a fundamen-
tal part of Australia's Middle
East policy.
"The courage of the Israeli
people when under threat is well
known in my country. The Camp
David accords and the Israel-
Egypt peace treaty have also
shown that the people of Israel
are prepared to be equally
courageous in the search for
peace. Recent events make it
clear that the demands on your
reservoir of courage for peace
may well increase."
Cabinet Vows to Continue
West Bank Policies
Cabinet, at a 4 '/i-hour meeting,
declared that the government
would "continue undaunted" its
policies on the West Bank which,
it said, were aimed at destroying
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion influence there while giving
all possible aid to Arab residents
prepared to "observe the law and
keep the peace."
The 10 days of demonstrations
and rioting on the West Bank,
which spread to the Gaza Strip
and East Jerusalem, have taken
eight lives so far, including an Is-
raeli soldier killed in a grenade
attack in Gaza.
Three Arab youths were
wounded in a clash with security
police in the town of Yaabad near
Jenin in northern Samaria. The
town was placed under curfew.
The incident occured when an of-
ficer of the civilian administra-
tion of the West Bank arrived in
the town to meet with the local
mayor. A large group of residents
attacked the officer with rocks.
The soldier escorting the officer
fired back, wounding one of the
Arab Mayors Said
Not to Want to Strike
JERUSALEM The degree
to which the continuing unrest on
the West Bank has affected Is-
rael's 670,000-strong Arab popu-
lation was tested Tuesday by the
manner in which Israeli Arabs
observed Land Day, an annual
event protesting Israel's seizure
of Arab lands in Galilee six years
A call for a general strike by
the Committee for the Protection
of Arab Land which organizes the
Land Day observances, got only
a lukewarm response from the

Mayors, the highest political
body of Israeli Arabs.
Of 54 Arab and Druze mayors
in Israel, 31 announced that they
and their local councils would not
join a strike. The Council as a
whole agreed unanimously to
"welcome" a strike decision and
expressed "understanding" for
the reasons.
But this was an oblique way of
indicating neither approval nor
disapproval. Individual mayors
were left free to interpret the
Council's position in whatever
way they choose.
State Dep't. Denies
Haig Blamed Jordan
Department sought to denv that
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig had placed some of the
blame on Jordan for the violence
on the West Bank.
Haig, appearing on the NBC-
TV "Meet the Press" program,
said that "measures" taken by
Jordan helped "trigger" the
events in the occupied territories.
When Department spokesman
Dean Fischer was asked to name
the measures Jordan had taken,
he replied instead that the Secre-
tary's remarks "were made in the
context of our abhorrence of the
recent violence on the West Bank
and repeated calls on those who
can influence the situation to help
calm it."
When a reporter pointed out
that this was not the context in
which Haig's remarks, were
made. Fisher replied. "I think
what he (Haig) was suggesting is
that along with others, Jordan

The court, in Celfe, Lower
Saxony, ruled that denial of the
Holocaust does not constitute an
offense under West German law
although the judges conceded
that such behavior was an
assault on the honor of Jews. The
ruling nullified the conviction of
neo-Nazi Edgar Geiss by a lower
court in the town of Stade.
State Dep'L Admits Talks
With Israel on Iraq-Iran War
The State Department admitted
Ithat it has discussed the Iraqi-
[irunian war with Israel. But it re
(fused to say whether it had asked
llsrael to stop sending arms to
llran or whether Israel was in fact
[sending arms to that country.
State Department spokesman
|Dean Fischer, however, left the
(implication that the arms issue
|has been discussed with Israel.
That appeared to be the gist of
[Fischer's remarks in the wake of
news reports from Baghdad that
llraq has demanded several times
of the Reagan Administration
Ithat it stop Israel from sending
"Without getting into the
[specifics of our diplomatic ex-
changes, Iraq has raised reports
[of arms shipments to Iran with
us from time to time," Fischer
said. He added, "Again, without
getting into the specifics of our
diplomatic exchanges, we have,

contacts with the Israel govern-

There have been frequent
reports over the last 18 months
that Israel has sold arms to Iran
or arranged for Iran to obtain
arms. Some of these arms report-
edly were manufactured in Israel
under U.S. license. In addition,
many Arab countries have been
supporting Iraq. Egyptian Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak revealed in
his speech to the National Press
Club here last month that Egypt
has sent arms and ammunition to
Iraq. Jordan has reportedly
offered troops to Iraq's forces.

SHEMINI On the eighth day of their consecration, Aaron
and his sons offered sacrifices for themselves and the people at
Moses' command. Then Moses and Aaron came out of the tent
of meeting, blessing the people. The glory of God appeared; a
fire from Heaven consumed the burnt-offering on the altar. At
the sight, the people cried out and fell on their faces. Nadab and
Abihu, Aaron's sons, offered "Strange fire" on the altar; a fire
issued forth and devoured them. Aaron held his peace. The
priests are commanded not to drink wine or strong drink when
entering the tent of meeting "that ye may put differences be-
tween the holy and the common and between the unclean and
the clean" (Leviticus 10.10). The portion details the laws
describing cleanliness and uncleanliness in regard to the eating
of animals, fowls, and fish.

War Game and Begin-Reagan
FORMER Secretary of State
William P. Rogers, the man who
first engineered the plan that Is-
rael must return to its pre-1967
borders, may live to see yet a
second plan of his come to life.
Come to life is a strange phrase
in this context. Rogers waa a
figure the other week in a
unique war game. He played the
role of the President in a mock
Soviet nuclear attack on the
United States. Former CIA
director, Richard Helms, was the
Vice President. The "war" took
place "Mar. 1 to 5, but Rogers
hasn't given the details. The
Reagan Administration sees the
war game as classified informa-

fourth day of the war, "Presi-
dent" Rogers died as Soviet nu-

of course, Washington. "Vice
President" Helms survived be-

THE HORROR of this story is
I beyond words. It typifies the
wildest of the wild Reagan Ad-
ministration efforts to convince
us that the U.S. can fight a nu-
clear war and survive it, which
supposedly means to win. It
typifies the current propaganda
campaign of the militarists and
the industrialists to make an
[atomic holocaust "acceptable."
On the one hand, Rogers him-
Iself is rather certain that Mr.
I Reagan did not "read the story,"
a reference to the Wall Street
Journal report that first detailed
this insane war game, and so
there would be no comment from
I the President on it.

Ident has already told his war

Neither does the nation, any

nuclear war as if it were a John

?w Pre-1967 borders. It is easy to
Vnaerstand the momentary re-
turn to glory of Helms, the
former CIA chief. That is in
rmony with the Reaganite
""cunty tone.
But what of Mr. Rogers? If, in
the end, the Reaganites succeed
in implementing the Rogers Plan,
and it certainly appears likely
that they are in fact committed to
it, then the resurrection of the
man himself portends the resur-
rection and incarnation of his
most notorious idea.
That, I fear, will mean not the
death of Israel alone. When
"President" Rogers was "killed"
by Soviet nuclear bombs, he may
have served a prophetic purpose
for the second time in his life. For
most men, that is two times too
many. For Mr. Rogers, one time'
too many will be lethal enough

BETWEEN Ronald Reagan
and Menacheny Begin is a unique
and powerful tie. In the face of
national and even global opposi-
tion to each of their policies, both
exercise enormous powers.
Each man has a vision the rec-
titude of which he is convinced.
Reagan's economic scheme for
America and Begins geopolitical
scheme for Israel are both based
on presumptions rooted in his-
For Reagan, the New Federal-
ism is what the Founding
Fathers intended in his personal
interpretation of a laissez-faire
bourgeois society. For Begin, the
West Bank and Jerusalem are
central to his view of a biblically-
designed Israel.
Federalism may well lead to the
kind of national disaster from
which only the international
cartelists, who hold allegiance to
nothing but themselves, are safe.
For Begin, the West Bank-Jeru-
salem formula is one that would
have succeeded had it been im-
plemented after the Six-Day
But given today's Realpolitik,
it is uncomfortably conceivable
that it may end in war, a matter
for speculation not lost on the Is-
raelis themselves, many
thousands of whom were reported
last weekend to have marched in
sympathetic protest with the
' Arabs of the West Bank against
the policies of Mr. Begin and De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon.
It is the intractibility in each
leader then, that is at the core of
the tie between them. Arguably,
each is correct in his prophetic
vision. It is therefore especially
odd that, while Mr. Reagan
knows so intimately the bitter
experience of opposition to him,
that he should be utterly indif-
ferent to the impact of his own
opposition on Mr. Begin.
word, which includes ignorance,
as well, the President's refusal to
recognize what the ultimate ef-
fect of his pressure on Mr. Begin
to alter his policies will be on the
United States after the pressure
has neutered Israel as a state. In-
deed, the President's refusal to
recognize that there will be an ef-
fect at all. It is, in the end, a com-
plete Reagan Administration dis-
counting of the strategic signifi-
cance of a viable Israel in the
Middle East to America, and to
the world's industrialized demo-
cracies as a whole, that is at issue
The Reaganites say this isn't
so. Their recent cancellation of an
hours-old "strategic arrange-
ment" with Israel, which was a
play-actors sham to begin with, is
a case in point.
They aren't, they insist, in-
terested in destroying Israel; on
the contrary, they want to
"strengthen" it by encouraging
the Arab nations to come to
terms with its existence, and that
can only occur, they say, if Israel
is, in equal measure, "en-
couraged" to return to its pre-
1967 borders.
WHAT THE Reaganites do
not accept is that this would be
the same as neutering Israel.
Secretary of Defense Caspar
Weinberger, for example, is
quoted in the Washington Post
that "Israel is so far ahead mili-
tarily of its neighbors that it has
nothing to fear for years from any
combination of Arab states."
This followed on the heels of a
statement he made on an NBC-
TV "Today" show, where he
opined: "I think Israel's margin
of superiority is very great, and
the President and the Adminis-
tration are pledged to maintain
that margin of superiority."
Meanwhile, the Reagan Ad-
ministration's beefing up of the
Arabs goes on to the opposite
end. The most sophisticated
American weapons technology
flows to "moderate" Saudi
Arabia and other implacable Is-
raeli enemies in a growing stream
of super-sophisticated weapons
that adds to French technology
in the form of nuclear reactors;
guns, tanks and missiles from the
Soviet Union to their clients, the
Syrians, who share this booty
with the PLO; and warplanes
such as French Mirages to
Egypt, whose future intensions
toward Israel wil only clarify af-
ter the Sinai withdrawal in three
week's time.
. THE PENTAGON still insists
that Israel can win any war dur-
ing the next five years against
any combination of Arabs on the
battlefield, and Israeli military
authorities concede that this is
true. But the impact of the
weapons technology flow to the
Arabs is such that, given another
war in the near future, Israeli
casualties would number upward
of 20,000 soldiers killed, a con-
servative assessment of these
same military authorities.
Compare this to the 2,500
soldiers Israel lost in the 1973
Yom Kippur War, a devastating
enough figure for so small a na-
tion, and the result is that Israel
can no longer afford to absorb an
Arab first-strike, which is what
Reagan policy these days de-
mands from Mr. Begin, as is clear
in recent Administration state-
ments on southern Lebanon and
the Syrian missile impasse there.
This means that Israel, as a
consequence of American arms
policy in the Middle East, is left
with no alternative but a defense
strategy based on preemptiona
strategy surely calculated to en-
large the whole hypocritical
world generally and Mr. Reagan
specifically, should it ever occur.
That Mr. Reagan can not see
the sense of this in Mr. Begin's
policies is sad. The President's

Bought by Ex-Israeli Attache
The private papers of Hein-
rich Himmler, chief of the
German SS during the Nazi
era, and of his family, were
purchased recently in Mex-
ico for $40,000 from a
former Nazi, it was dis-
closed at a press conference
by Chaim Rosen-Thai, who
until a few months ago was
Israel's Cultural Attache at
the Israel Consulate here.
But Rosen-Thai said that the
authenticity of the vast collection
of documents has not yet been
completely verified and is under
scrutiny by various experts. He
declined to identify the person
who sold the documents because
"one of the conditions" of the
seller was that his name would
not be disclosed. Rosen-Thai said
the seller was "the secretary of
the secretary" of Himmler whom
he identified as Karl Wolf.
ROSEN THAL. who said he
learned about the existence of the
documents five years ago from a
friend in Belgium who is an art
and gun collector, said the collec-
tion includes about 700 personal
letters of Himmler and his
family; scores of photos from the
private albums of the Himmlers;
and diaries and legal documents,
such as a Nazi Party membership
book belonging to Himmler's
wife, Marya.
