The 1982 Tampa Jewish
Federation United Jewish
Appeal Campaign has reached a
crucial stage, according to
George Karpay, campaign
general chairman. Calling on all
members of the Tampa Jewish
community to come forth now
and be counted, Karpay cited
figures which show that the 1982
campaign can top the $1 million
dollar mark and come close to
reaching the $1.2 million goal.
"There are still hundreds of
pledges not yet received to date,
and we will be making a con-
certed effort the last week in
April to reach every contributor
before the end of the month,''
Karpay stated.
Telephone calls will be made on
Apr26, 28 and 29 in an all out
effort to bring the 1982 campaign
to its successful conclusion by

workers to contact those who

Relations Committee Update
The Price of Peace
Apr 25, 1982 has become the
focus of a great deal of anxiety in
Israel. On that day Israel will
have completely withdrawn from
the Sinai Peninsula. Israel will
have held all or a substantial part
of that area for almost 15 years.
Considering that Israel will
celebrate its 34th anniversary
days later, the shock of being
without control of the desert will
be considerable.
The process that will culminate
in late April began not with the
Israel-Egypt peace treaty, but in
1974. In that year, Israel reached
the first separation of forces
agreement with Egypt and with-
drew from substantial land
captured in the Yom Kippur War.
By the end of the second
Kissinger mediated agreement ir
1975, Israel had withdrawn from
the Suez Canal and back about 15
miles into the Sinai leaving 3
strategic mountain passes in the
hands of American radar ob-
servers. In return Israel received
an Egyptian agreement to live up
original international

Minister of Labor Found
Guilty on Charges of Fraud
Aharon Abu-Hatzeira, the
Minister of Labor, Welfare
and Absorption, was found
guilty in Tel Aviv district
court Monday on three
counts of larceny, fraud and
breach of trust but acquitt-
ed of three other criminal
charges. His attorneys an-
nounced that he will appeal.
A former aide, Moshe Ga-
bai, was found guilty on the
same counts.
Abu-Hatzeira, who heads thi
Tami faction, a member of Prem-
ier Menachem Begin s coalition,
faces a maximum penalty of
seven years imprisonment. Sen-
tence will be pronounced at a la-
ter date. Judge Victoria Ostrov-
sky-Cohen, who rendered the ver-
dict, was escorted to court by a
heavy police guard, and extra
police were stationed throughout
the building.
THE VERDICT against the
Moroccan-born minister sparked
an uproar among his followers
who saw it as an ethnic slur
against the Sephardic com-
munity. Shouts of "Up the
Sephardim," "There is no justice
in Israel" and "Long live Abu-
Hatzeria," erupted from the
vistors gallery.
The charges against Abu-Hat-
zeira stemmed from his adminis-
tration of a State-supported
charitable fund established in the
name of his late father, the for-
mer Chief Rabbi of Morocco
Yitzhak Abu-Hatzeira, when he
was Mayor of Ramie six years
Judge Ostrovsky-Cohen ex-
coriated Abu-Hatzeira and his co-
defendant. Although they were
Israel Independence
Day May 2
A day of fun and excitement is
set for this year's celebration of
Israel Independence Day to be
held at the Tampa Jewish
Community Center on Sunday,
May 2 from noon to 4 p.irf.
The games and activities get
underway with a march by the
teams into the center's pool area
at noon, ending late that after-
noon with a bar-b-que dinner.
People from five years old to
seniors participate in the annual
event, a day to celebrate the free-
dom of Israel.
"We try to get as many people
involved as possible in the day's
celebration," said I ID chairman,
Sue Borod. "We expect we will
have over 1000 participants for
the games this year, and every-
one who comes out leaves here
with a smile."
Anyone who would like more
information may contact the
Jewish Community Center (872-
4451) or come by the center at
2808 Horatio.
There is no admission to the
found not guilty of charges of ag-
gravated fraud and criminal
conspiracy, this was mainly be-
cause of the statute of limitations
and the fact that Interior Minis-
ter Yosef Burg had not come for-
ward to give evidence, she said.
The verdict against Abu-Hat-
zeria could have serious conse-
quences for Begin's narrowly -
based government. Although a
minister is not required by law to
resign if found guilty of criminal
offenses his resignation can be
requested by the Premier.
BEGIN IS NOT expected to
act until the outcome of the ap-
peal, but opposition members of
the Knesset are demanding that
Abu-Hatzeria resign forthwith.
to the
In the Israeli-Egyptian Peace
Treaty Israel relinquished the
rest of the Sinai in return for
peace. What Israel gave up can
best be seen in 3 areas:
1. Economic Israel was
supplying about half of its energy
needs from the Sinai oil wells
which she developed. It was
expected that Israel would be
self-sufficient in energy needs in a
few years. Today, Israel must
import all of its coal and oil a cost
of $2.2 billion a year, an enor-
mous burden for a small nation.
The relocation of a large
number of military facilities from
the Sinai to the Negev has a
staggering price tag. While some
financial aid was received from
the U.S. to build new airfields,
that one time grant covered less
than '/! of the estimated $5 billion
cost. The compensation to
settlers who must leave their
homes is about $300 million
alone, 2 percent of the 1981 Gross
National Product of Israel.
2. Strategic The Egyptian
army has been the largest of all
Arab forces. The population of
Egypt, about 40 million people, is
equal to the combined popula-
tions of Syria, Iraq, Jordan,
Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, North
Yemen, and Libya. The Egyp-
tian-Israeli border is moving
about 40 miles closer to Israel
then it was in October, 1973 and
will be 25 miles from Beersheba
or about 60 miles to Tel Aviv.
In addition to the loss of
strategic depth, Israel will relin-
quish control over the entrance to
the Gulf of Eilat and the vital
trade through the Port of Eilat.
The removal of its air bases to the
Negev will not only cost Israel
billions of dollars but also some
of the most advanced and secured
air bases in the world. The new
bases will be far more vulnerable
and far more "cramped" in the
limited space of the Negev. This
makes Israel more vulnerable to
an attack from any country.
3. National The national
sacrifice by Israel is considerable.
The State of Israel is for the first
time giving up farms, towns and
homes. The impact of such events
on a country based on i
and redevelopment of |

On Apr. 14, National Council of Jewish Women hadamostm-
teresting meeting at the Diplomat Condominiums. Chairman
Jan Bloom planned a Passover luncheon for the group along
with the help of her committee, Judy Hazen, Marian Whiten,
and Judy Baach. The program was "Fashion Accessory Update |
from Burdines" with "Tampa Tribune" fashion editor, Bonnie
Haliczer, as guest speaker. Undoubtedly, this program was one
that was really enjoyed by all, and provided a lot of useful infor-
mation that the ladies could incorporate into their own ward-
robes. In addition, new members and rejoining members wen
honored at this meeting.
Recently Judy Baach, "Cradle Roll Chairwoman'' for the Sis-
terhood of Congregation Schaarai Zedek planned a wonderful
Passover Activity Party for the pre-school age children of the
temple. Moms, Dads, and kiddies all thoroughly enjoyed this
Saturday morning at the temple which was filled with all sort* of
activities and Passover treats to eat. Aiding Judy in planning
this event were Rocky Marcus, Jan Bloom and Leslie Osterwei
When the children and their parents arrived at the temple, then
were various activities already laid out and ready for participe-
tion. The children made matzo covers out of felt, they could put
together mock seder plates with the help of some construct*
paper and glue, coloring books compiled of Passover scenes were
available for artistic fingers, and Jan Bloom read a wonderful
Passover story to the group. Macaroons and toasted and sugar
coated matzas were on each table to nibble on. To complete the
morning, Rabbi Frank Sundheim led the group in singing Pl-
over songs along with his trusty guitar. Any parents with pre-
school age children in the temple, contact Judy to find out about
the next event to take place probably near the end of May.
We know that a lot of your organizations will be electing new
officers for 1982-83 in the weeks to come. Be sure to let us know
about your new slate so we can let the community know.
As always, we will punish a list of where our graduating
seniors plan to go to college next year. Please, please call us an
let us know where you have been accepted and which school you

An Anniversary Reminder
The 34th anniversary of the establishment of Is-
rael's independence to be celebrated next week comes
at the most difficult time in that nation's history.
Given that all things occur on schedule, three days
will have passed since Israel withdrew from the Sinai
Peninsula, an experience without parallel in the his-
tory of the nations of the world, an experience during
an era in which Israel, despite its most breathtaking
sacrifices in the cause of peace, can do little that finds
approval even in the eyes of its best friends.
Still, the 34th anniversary event must not be per-
mitted to be marred by that unhappy occasion The
essence of the 34th anniversary lies in more signifi-
cant things, notably the achievements of Israel
which are grand and glorious on their own terms.
In 34 years, a great nation has emerged out of the
sands of previous desert wastes. There has been the
ingathering of a people scattered in the lands of the
diaspora, survivors of a dreadful war against them
by the fascist beast of the 1930s and 40 s.
In science, in technology, in art, in simple
humanity, Israel and its people have created a nation
of vigor and influence far beyond the computation of
mere numbers and mere square miles.
The agony of withdrawal on Sunday, Apr. 25, is
real and undeniable. But so is the glory of Thursday,
Apr. 28, which must not be diminished by the agony.
In the end, the greatness of a people and of a nation
lies in their spirit.
It is the great Jewish spirit that brought the rem-
nants of Jews surviving the Holocaust to the Land of
Israel. It is the great Jewish spirit that will trans-
cend their momentary agonies over the transference
of the sands of the Sinai back to the fleshpots of
world politics, and bring them to greater glories still
to come.
A Rock and a Hard Place
This is it. The date is Sunday. Apr. 25, when Israel
completes its full withdrawal from the Sinai, which it
won in 1967 in the Six-Day War against Egypt. Will
the withdrawal occur on schedu.e? We believe it will.
Israel is not about to earn the enmity of the inter-
national community by reneging on its commitment.
Such approval which is left for the Israelis, and there
is precious little of that in the world, would go by the
boards. After all, the returning of territories won in a
defensive war is unprecedented. Which of the nations
that daily excoriate Israel as the "heavy" in the Mid-
dle East can claim a similar distinction?
Certainly not the Russians. And of course, given
the Falkland Islands dilemma, not the British. There
simply is no real parallel situation. Still, Israel has
earned no added distinction for the extraordinary
risk it assumes in withdrawing from the Sinai. Not
even its presumable ally, the United States, looks
upon the Israelis with genuine favor, but rather as a
growing burden.
It is against this background that Sunday must
come as scheduled.
The risks are already clear, and they grow daily.
Once Egypt is reinstalled in the Sinai, the depth fac-
tor to the south with respect to Arab propinquity will
be annulled.
Already there are mutterings o! Egyptian dissatis-
faction with Israel. There are similar mutterings of
Israeli dissatisfaction with Egypt charges of viola-
tions of the Camp David treaty with respect to the
number of Egyptian troops returned to the desert
area; outright Israeli accusations that Egypt is per-
mitting arms to flow from El Arish into the hands of
the PLO in Gaza.
Begin Declares
We'll Honor Withdrawal Date
Premier Menachem Begin
says that Israel will honor
its peace treaty commit-
ment to withdraw from
Sinai by the Apr. 25 dead-
line. But his remarks, in in-
terviews published in Maa-
riv and Tediot Achronot
appeared to be less than an
unqualified assurance that
the withdrawal would take
place on schedule.
According to the interviews.
Begin spoke of "certain prob-
lems" which have arisen with
Egypt. He said "there will be no
problem" if they can be resolved
saustactomy by Apr. 2b. He
added, however. "If we do not
achieve full satisfaction, we shall
have to consider the situation.."
BEGIN HAS received a del-
egation of the "young
guard" of his Herat fac-
tion who presented him with
a petition calling on the gov-
ernment to consider delaying
signed by about 750 of the 900
delegates to the Herat "young
guard" convention at which
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir, Defense Minister Ariel Sha-
ron and Deputy Premier David
Levy delivered hardline speeches
hinting at a delay unless alleged
Egyptain treaty violations are
A delegation spokesman said
later that Begin had promised the
group that he would raise the
withdrawal issue at last Sunday's
Cabinet meeting. He reminded
them, however, that there was a
binding Knesset decision approv-
ing the 1979 peace treaty with
Egypt which requires Israel to be
out of Sinai by Apr. 25. He also
reportedly told the Herat mili-
tants that Israel's complaints
against Egypt, while serious,
should not be exaggerated.
THE PREMIER'S newpaper
interviews were far more moder-
ate than the speeches by Shamir.
Sharon and Levy. Begin said he
had not read the remarks by
those ministers and that "no
such decision" (to delay the with-
drawal) had been taken by the
Shamir told the Herat conven-
tion that the Camp David ac-
cords must obligate all sides if
they are to retain any validity."
Sharon vowed that Israel would
not make the slightest conces
sions with regard to the peace
treaty violations attributed to
Egypt. Levy declared. "If the
withdrawal has to be postponed,
then let it be postponed."
Other Herat MKs took an even
harder line. Yoaef Rom. a mem-
ber of the Knesset's Foreign Af-
fairs and Security Committee,
who visited the Yamit region of
northern Sinai, told members of
the movement to stop the with-
drawal that he had "recommend-
ed to the government that it de-
lay the withdrawal for a month"
because of Egypt's behavior. He
was warmly applauded. MK
Yigal Cohen-Orgad, meanwhile,

kud MKs who oppose the peace
treaty to pressure the govern-
ment to consider a postpone-
Ehud Olmert. told reporters that
this caucus represented a small
fraction to the Likud Knesset
faction. The majority, he said,
firmly believed that the political
damage Israel would suffer if it
delayed its pull-out from Sinai
would far outweigh any benefits

Da vid Ben Gurion
Note on Israel's Independence Recalled
It is clear that the founders
and the immediate builders of
the State of Israel were the im-
migrants who came to the
country, lived in it, built it in the
sweat of their brow, and carried
out in their lives a three-fold
transformation; they changed
their country, language and way
of life. Before the establishment
of the State, these founders and
builders came mainly from
Europe, starting in the last
quarter of the 19th Century and
continuing until close to the rise
of the State; they came from the
Jewry in which the idea of Hibbat
Zion (the love of Zion) and later
the political Zionist movement,
took shape.
David Ben-Gurion was Israel's first Prime
Minister, and he is regarded as the main architect of
the Jewish State's independence. Following is an
excerpt from his essay, Israel and Diaspora,' in the
Jewish Frontier Anthology, 1945-1967.
prophets and teachers was for
complete national redemption in
the Promised Land. The vision,
however, was not limited to the
Jewish people, but brought
tidings of peace, righteousness
and equality to all peoples, in
other words, complete redem-
ption for the human race and an
end to all tyranny and wicked-
ness in the world.

the publication of Herzl's
Judenstaat and the convening of
the first Zionist Congress in
Basle, this idea was given the
name of "Zionism." The meaning
behind the idea was the will to
return to Zion and to reassemble
the nation in its own land.
ONE OF the causes of Zionism
was no doubt distress, economic,
political and cultural, of various
types and fluctuating intensities.
But distress alone is not suffi-
cient to impel people to migrate
to a country where they meet
with even greater difficulties
than those they knew in the
countries they came from.
It is impossible to understand
everything that has happened in
pur days the renewal of the
Jewish State and the im-
migration of tens of thousands of
Jews who never read
Pinsker and Herzl, and perhaps
had never even heard the name of
Zionism-without considering the
vision of messianic redemption
which is implanted deep in the
heart of the Jewish people, not
only since the destruction of the
second Temple, but ever since the
days of the first literary proph-
ets, if not before the departure
from Egypt.
This vision fills the very air of
Jewish history, and in various
countries at different times it has
been the motive force in powerful
movements, which at the time
deeply stirred the Jewish people,
sometimes as a whole and
sometimes in part. They were the
profound and never-failing
sources from which the J<>*s,
dispersed in exile for hundreds of
years, drew the moral and
spiritual strength to face all the
difficulties of ufe in foreign lands
and to survive until the coming of
national salvation.
ANYONE who does not realize
that the vision of messianic
redemption is the central feature

us to be a light to the nations.'

Jewish people, not only of those
living in our days, but of all the
generations in our history; for it
was only the faith, the vision and
the spiritual heroism of past
generations that made possible
the achievements of our own day.
ONLY IN sovereign Israel
does the full opportunity now
arise for molding the life of the
Jewish people according to its
own needs and values, in loyalty
to its own character and its spirit,
to its historic heritage and its
vision for the future. In Israel the
barrier between the Jew and the
man is destroyed; the State has
assured its people of integrity
and completeness as Jews and as
In Israel the Jews are a nation
like all the nations, and at the
same time they are Jews in every
fibre of their bodies and every
feeling in their hearts, as no Jew
can possibly be abroad. In this
respect there is no difference
between orthodox, religious,
freethinking and non-religious
Jews. The ancient Jewish past
has suddenly become close,
intimate, real, complete, as it is
reflected in the Book of Books.
Nevertheless, the fate of the
State is involved in the fate of
World Jewry, and vice versa.'
The State of Israel is only the
beginning of the redemption; its
survival and the fulfillment of its
mission cannot be assured
without the continuation of the
ingathering of the exiles. Jewry
in the Diaspora, and above all in
its two great centers, is already
far gone in the process of
assimilation, although its Jewish
consciousness has not yet
WITHOUT mutual bonds
between Israel and the Diaspora
communities, it is doubtful
whether Israel will survive, and
whether Jewry in the Diaspora
will not perish by euthanasia or
suffocation. Apart from the
prophetic heritage, there are also
geopolitical reasons for the fact
that Israel is not, and cannot be,
only like other states. "The
House of Israel is not like all the
nations" that is not only a
religious and ethical dogma, but
a historical imperative, the decree
of fate.

Final Stages
Helping Israel Live Through It
(JTA) Nicholas Veliotes,
Assistant Secretary of
State for Near East and
South Asian Affairs, said
that the U.S. is trying to
help Israel and Egypt over-
come their "suspicions"
and "concerns" as they im-
plement the final stage of
their peace treaty.
But Veliotes stressed that he i*
"very confident" that Apr. 25,
the day Israel is scheduled to
complete its withdrawal from
Sinai, will "mark a new begin-
ning" for Israeli-Egyptian
relations. He said he is also confi-
dent that the peace treaty will be
"fully implemented," stressing
that the U.S. is the "guarantor"
of the treaty.
VELIOTES, who was testi-
fying before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee's subcom-
mittee on Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs on the

posed foreign aid for the Mid
die East and South Asia in fisca.
year 1983, said the Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty is the "basis
for U.S. policy for peace and se-
curity in the Middle East" and is
also accepted by Israel and
Egypt as the basis for their
The State Departments offi-
cial, who returned from Israel
and Egypt, said the attempt to
ease the concerns of the two
countries was the reason for his
recent trip there and why Deputy
Secretary of State Walter Stoes-
sel, Jr. was in Israel now and
later went to Egypt.
But he stressed that the last-
minute difficulties between the
two countries had been "exag-
gerated," an assessment with
which Sen. Rudy Boschwitz (R.,
Minn.), the subcommittee chair-
man who conducted the hearings,
was in agreement.
VELIOTES stressed that no
one should "be surprised there
are concerns" in Israel and Egypt
with the implementation of the
peace treaty. He said that al-
though Israel has already estab-
lished diplomatic relations with
Egypt and has begun the nor-
malization process, it still feels it
is taking "a step into the un-
Bosch wit/, noted that Israel is
giving up strategic depth for a
treaty in an area where treaties
have not always been as "mean-
ingful" as they are for the U.S.
But he expressed the hope that
the peace process will be ex-
panded to include Jordan and
other Arab countries.

Veliotes agreed that treaties
have not been "worth much" in
the Middle East. "But this is the
first treaty between Israel and a
major Arab country, any Arab
country," he said. He stressed
that the U.S. did not only play a
role in achieving the treaty but is
"really the guarantor" of the
BOSCHWITZ expressed con
cern over the arms race going on
in the Middle East in which not
only the U.S. but many other
countries take part. He said
many low population countries in
the Middle East were accumulat-
ing more arms than NATO.
"This adds to the military and
economic strains in the region,"
he said.
Veliotes replied that arms sales
are part of the overall approach
but "by no means the only ele-
ment" of U.S. foreign policy. He
said the Middle East is a
"volatile and potentially danger-
ous place" and the countries
there believe they need weapons.
He said that outside the Israel-
Arab conflict, many of those
countries see threats to them-
selves from neighboring coun-
tries which receive huge supplies
of arms.
Throughout his testimony.
Veliotes stressed that the U.S.
aid program is aimed at main-
taining Israel's "technical" and
"qualitative edge," two terms he
said are synonomous. He said in
the foreseeable future, Israel has
a qualitative edge over the Arab
Secretary of Defense for Interna-
tional Security, said the Arab
quantitative edge over Israel has
diminished. He said it is now 5-1
against Israel instead of 6-1 as
previously. He said one reason is
the cost of weapons is so high
that many countries cannot
afford to buy as much as they
might want. He also observed
that with the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty, Israel no longer has
to worry about its southern flank.
West also made a pitch for
arms sales to Jordan. He noted
that there were difficulties with
Jordan, since it was a confronta-
tion state with Israel. But at the
same time, he pointed out that
Jordan is considered a friend of
the U.S. and faces the danger of
attack from Syria.
Both Boschwitz and Sen. Paul
Sarbanes (D., Md.), the only
other Committee member at the
hearings, were critical of the
Reagan Administration's deci-
sion to change foreign aid ap-
propriations for fiscal 1983 even
though they had been already ap-
proved by Congress. Last
December, Congress approved a
foreign aid bill for both the cur-
rent fiscal year and fiscal 1983
which begins October 1, some-
thing it had never done before.
THE TWO Senators were par-
ticularly critical of the Adminis-
tration's proposal to decrease the
amount of aid that will be given
to Israel and Egypt as grants in
fiscal 1983. Veliotes said the
reason was to "balance" efforts
to supply Israel and Egypt with
the Administrations "general
budgetary problems."
Joseph Wheeler, Deputy Ad-
ministrator of the Agency for In-
ternational Development, said
this year Israel is getting $758
million in economic aid and
Egypt S750 million, all of it
grants. But in 1983, only two
thirds of the amounts for the two
countries will be in grants.
Israel will receive in 1983 $1.7
billion in military assistance, a
$300 million increase over this
vear. But Wheeler said the
amount to be a grant to Israel in
1983 will be $500 million, $50 mil-
lion less than in the current
budge. The Administration has
proposed $1.3 billion in military
assistance for Egypt in 1983, a
$400 million increase. (Of that
amount, $400 million will be a
grant, twice the amount as last
David Sadd, executive director
of the National Association of
Arab Americans, denounced
what he called the "dispropor-
tionate amount of foreign aid
going to Israel." He said that al-
though Israel has the highest per
capita gross national product of
any country receiving U.S. aid in
the Middle East, it "will receive a
higher amount of aid than any
other recipient nation." He urged
increased funding for programs
the U.S. supports on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.

The British, apparently, hoped
that the United Nations would
invite them to continue to rule in
Palestine, while freeing them
from the bonds of the Balfour
Declaration and the Mandate,
but they were sorely disappoint-
For the first time, representa-
tives of the Jewish people were
able to present the Zionist case
directly to the community of na-
tions. Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver,
the American Zionist leader,
MosheShertok (Sharett), head of
the Jewish Agency's Political
Department, and David Ben-
Gurion addressed the Political
Commission of the Assembly,
calling for the establishment of a
Jewish State as the only solution
to the problem.
TO EVERYONE'S surprise,
Jewish national claims were sup-
ported by Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko of the USSR,
thus assuring the backing of the
two super powers, one of the few
major issues on which they were
to cooperate until the Korean
War heralded the start of the
Cold War.
Vitally important, too, were
the terms of reference of the New
York based committee and its
composition. Despite Arab pro-
tests, it was given "the widest
powers'to ascertain all questions
and issues relative to the problem
of Palestine," enabling it to take
into account the plight of the
Jews in Europe.
The Assembly also resolved
that the committee should repre-
sent only the smaller, neutral na-
tions, thus excluding Britain and
the Arab states. It had eleven
members-Australia, Canada
Czechoslovakia, Guatemala, In-
dia, Iran, the Netherlands, Peru,
Sweden, Uruguay and Yugosla-
In UNSCOP's report, submitt-
ed on August, 31, 1947, it recom-
mended unanimously that Great
Britain should relinquish the
Mandate. As against a three-
member proposal to create an in-
dependent, federal, bi-national
state of Palestine, the majority
called for the establishmeent of
two states, one Arab and one
Jewish, and an international
enclave comprising Jerusalem.
Bethlehem and their environs-all
joined in an economic union.
DESPITE THE small size of
the proposed Jewish area and the
peculiar configuration of its
boundaries, the Jews accepted
the recommendations which, for
the first time, gave explicit inter-
national sanction to the creation
of a Jewish State; the Arabs re-
jected them in toto. The UN-
SCOP report, with minor amend-
ments was adopted by the Gener-
al Assembly on November 29,
1947 by the necessary two-third
majority-33 votes to 13, with 10
This historic decision did not,
of course, guarantee the estab-
lishment of Jewish statehood; it
was only the prologue to a period
of suffering and heroism, in
which the Jews had to fight for
their independence. It compelled
the British, however, to withdraw
from the Holy Land, which they
had ruled for two decades, and
thus prepared the way for the
Proclamation of Independence of
May 14, 1948, which raised the
curtain on a new act in the age-
old Jewish drama: the renewal of
Jewish sovereignty in the Land
of Israel.

Israel Charges UN Debate
Fans Flames of Hatred
(JTA) Israel has charged
that the Security Councfl,
which opened its debate on
"The Situation in the Occu-
pied Arab Territories," was
urgently convened "at the
whim of certain countries
which seek to exploit the
misdeeds of one particular
individual acting on his
own in order to fan the
flames of religious hatred
and incitement."
Ambassador Yehuda Blum of
Israel said that tha shooting
incident in the Dome of the Rock,
the sacred Islamic shrine in Jeru-
salem, was a "tragedy." Ha smid
the perpetrator of the crime "may
wall be menUUy deranged," de-
scribing his action aa "an act of

that this debate will be -plotted

Tha Arab leaders decided to
incite the Moslem world "to
detract attention from their own
problems the dreary and cruel
oppression of their peoples, the
wanton razing of their own
ancient cities and mosques in
Syria and in Lebanon, and the
attempts to bbt out the rankling
memory of the destruction by
Jordan of Jewish synagogues and
cemeteries in Jerusalem," Blum
The Israeli evoy also charged

Book Ban
List Asked
Labor MK Abba Eban has called
on Defense Minister Ariel Sharon
to make available to the Knesset
a list of some 2,000 books banned
on the West Bank. Eban said the
books include George Orwell's
"1984," Alan Moorehead's
famous accounts of the search for
the sources of the Nile, and
"Song of the Wind," written 50
years ago by a leading Egyptian
author, Tawfik el-Hakim.
Eban wanted to know why a
book dealer in Nabhis could be
prosecuted for selling books that
are freely available in Arabic
translation in East Jerusalem.
He said the ban was ridiculous
inasmuch as many of the books
are classics which could hardly be
considered politically dangerous.
According to the Jerusalem Post,
Shakespeare's "Merchant of
Venice" in Arabic is also on the
proscribed list.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And if her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take
two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons"
(Lev. 12.8)
TAZRIA Cleanliness and uncleanliness are further defined,
here in relation to childbirth and leprosy. "If a woman be
delivered, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven
days And she shall continue in the blood of purification
three and thirty days But if she bear a maid-child, then she
shall be unclean two weeks and she shall continue in the
blood of purification threescore and six days. And when the days
of her purification are fulfilled she shall bring a lamb of the
first year for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-
dove for a sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting unto
the priest" (Leviticus 12.2-6). Suspected lepers are to be brought
to the priest, who quarantines the case for seven days. A careful
descrintion of the varieties of leoroRv is followed bv rules for the
leper's identification and isolation. "And the leper in whom the
plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and the hair of his head shall
go loose, and he shall cover his upper Up, and shall cry:
'Unclean, unclean.' All the days wherein the plague is in him he
I shall be unclean; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone: without
the camp shall his dwelling be" (Leviticus 13.45-460).
"And the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of
leprosy be healed in the leper"
METZORA ,Ltv-133>-
METZORA This portion describes the laws for the purifica-
tion of the leper after he is healed. "Then shall the priest com-
mand to take for him that is to be cleansed two living clean
birds, and cedar-wood, and scarlet and hyssop. And the priest
shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over
running water. As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the
cedar-wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them
and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over
the running water. And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be
cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him
clean, and shall let go the lilving bird into the open field. And he
that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his
hair, and bathe himself in water, and he shall be clean: and after
that he may come into the camp, but shall dwell outside his tent
seven days. And it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall
shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows .
and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and he shall be clean"
(Leviticus 14.4-9). Finally, after bringing an offering to the
priest on the eighth day, the former leper shall be formally clean.
Leprosy was understood to affect objects as well as people. The
portion describes the various cases of leprosy and prescribes
their treatment: "This is the law for all manner of plague of le-
prosy, and for a scall, and for the leprosy of a garment, and for a
house: and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot; to
teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean; this is the law of
leprosy" (Leviticus 14.54-57).

News in Brief

Egypt Confident of Withdrawal
By JTA Report
Menachem Begin is reported
"satisfied" by Egyptian
clarifications regarding last-
minute disputes between Israel
and Egypt prior to the Sinai pull-
back Sunday. A group of Likud
Knesset members who met with
the Premier Monday evening
came away with the impression
that he intends to proceed with
the withdrawal as scheduled.
Egyptian Deputy Premier
Kamal Hassan Ali, after a long
day of talks with Begin and top
ministers, also sounded upbeat.
He told reporters "new ideas"
had been advanced to "bridge th
gaps" and that "the coming day;
will witness hopefully a happ>
conclusion of the pending
Hassan Ali said Egypt was
"fully confident" that Apr. 25
"will give the bilateral relations a
new impetus and vigorous thrust
in the right direction towards the
full autonomy ... as envisaged
in Camp David and the peace
treaty to which Egypt adheres
and remains faithful in letter and
Watch Out: Carter's
Going to Mideast
President Carter is seeking to in-
volve himself again in the Middle
East peace process. He said in an
interview with the joint Sunday
editions of The Atlanta Journal
and The Atlanta Constitution
that he might travel to the Mid-
east to join negotiations on Pal-
estinian autonomy on the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip.
"I'll use my influence, what-
ever it is, to continue the
Gcess." Carter said. "Particu-
y in Egypt, and I think to a
major degree in Israel, I'm still
trusted. As a private citizen
working in a proper way, I'll use
my influence if a time of trouble
comes." Carter criticized the
Reagan Administration for what
he said was its failure to take a
more active role in the Mideast.
Pope Calls Shooting
A'Rash Gesture'
ROME Pope John Paul II
referred to the Easter Sunday
shooting on the Temple Mount in
Jerusalem as a "rash gesture"
that has had repercussions in
other parts of the Middle East.
The Pontiff included that state-
ment in an address last week to a
crowd of 40,000 in St. Peter's
Square who he called on to pray
for the "situations of conflict" in
the world.
With respect to the April 11 in-
cident in Jerusalem where an
American-born Israeli gunman
opened fire on Moslem worship-
pers in the Dome of the Rock
Mosque, killing two and wound-
ing 30, the Pope observed that
"... Reasons for anxiety for the
painful perturbations which are
taking place in the Holy Land
and particularly in Jerusalem, in
Trans-Jordan and in Gaza are
mounting following the rash ges-
ture" on the Temple Mount,
"causing innocent victims and
giving rise to other sorrowful
Goodman to Undergo
Psychiatric Testing
lem District Court has issued an
order for Allan Harry Goodman
to undergo psychiatric ob-
servation. Goodman, the
American-born Israel army reser-
vist, was arraigned last week for
the shooting spree three days
earlier at the Temple Mount in
which two Arabs were killed anc
30 were wounded. The district
psychiatrist will rule on whether
Goodman was sane when he com-
mitted the alleged crime and
whether he is fit to stand trial.
Meanwhile, the violence and
general strike on the West Bank,
Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem
which followed last Sunday's
incident abated today in East Je-
rusalem. Stores reopened and no
disturbances were reported there.
U.S. Jews Harming
Selves Klutznick
Klutznick, president emeritus of
the World Jewish Congress,
declared that American Jews
were losing "credibility" and
"fooling ourselves" in believing
they were "fooling others" in
maintaining that Jews in the
U.S. and elsewhere were united
behind every act of the Israeli
"We are doing great damage to
Israel by our acts that give rise to
serious questions of credibility of
our own American Jewish insti-
tutions, our own Jewish Ameri-
can leaders who are perceived in
too many places as acting as
rubber stamps," he told some 200
people Sunday at a meeting
sponsored by The New Jewish
Agenda at Temple Sinai here.
Klutznick, who was Secretary
of Commerce in the Carter Ad-
ministration, devoted much of his
prepared remarks to defending
his right to criticize Israel.
Yamit Militants Vow
They'll Commit Suicide
TEL AVIV A group of die-
hard followers of Rabbi Meir
Kahane who have threatened
mass suicide if Israel completes
its withdrawal from Sinai, re-
fused to be persuaded to leave
their booby-trapped air raid
shelter in Yamit despite an
appeal by Army Chief Rabbi
Maj. Gen. Gad Navon who
visited them Sunday.
They also rejected appeals over
the weekend by Israel's two Chief
Rabbis, Shlomo Goren and
Ovadia Yosef, who reminded
them that suicide is against
Jewish law.
The militants, members of
Kahane's Kach faction, barri-
caded themselves in the shelter
last Thursday and so far have
resisted attempts by the army to
remove them. On Friday they
hurled gasoline bombs at Israeli
troops but caused no casualties
or damage.
IDF Role Allegations
Spark Critical Storm
preme Court Justice Haim
Cohen has come under withering
criticism for charging last week
that the Israel Defense Force is
violating the human rights of the
Druze on the Golan Heights and
for claiming that the army had
imposed a "barbaric law" on the
Golan. Cohen, who is the presi-
dent of the Association for Civil
Rights, made these charges at a
press conference here last week.
Sources close to Premier
Menachem Begin advised Cohen
to "see if Israel's neighbors have
human rights, not to speak of
human rights organizations."
Interior Minister Yosef Burg
rejected the term "barbaric" and
asserted that no violence has
been used to force the Druze to
accept Israeli identify cards.
Burg, a National Religious
Party members of the Knesset,
said Cohen's allegations were
"vicious," based on false infor-
