UJA Officers Call for Action
The Tampa Jewish Federation has wired to date over
$150,000 in cash to the United Jewish Appeal.
Monies are forwarded daily to help meet human serv-
I ices in Israel.
Tampa Jewish community leadership urgently re-
I quests you to pay all or part of your 1982 pledge
!NOW. If you have not made a pledge to the 1982
Tampa Jewish Federation-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign, please do so at once. Campaign leadership
reports that many additional pledge increases have
come in from community members who had already
made a 1982 commitment.
In Response To Current Crisis
At a special meeting in New
York, national officers of the
United Jewish Appeal called for
full mobilization of the resources
of American Jewish communities
in response to the current strug-
gle of Israel's people for the right
to live in peace. The action came
after the group studied reports of
economic disruption caused by
the action in Lebanon, projected
curtailment of government fund-
ing for social welfare programs
and physical damage to UJA-
funded Jewish agency facilities in
the Galilee.
Two central objectives of the
mobilization were identified by
UJA National Chairman Robert
E. Loup of Denver, who presided
at the extraordinary gathering
which brought more than 20 offi-
cers overnight to New York from
all sections of the country. The
national plan seeks maximum
transmittal of cash to the Jewish
Agency, and completion of the
1982 UJA-community fundrais-
ing campaign at the highest
achievable level, both in the
shortest possible period of time.
A model cash action an-
nounced at the meeting was the
decision by the UJA-Federation
Joint Campaign of Greater New
York to advance $10 million im-
mediately for direct transmission
to the agency. The New York
campaign has adopted an overall
$25 million cash goal by June 30.
"The national officers are urg-
ing all communities to follow
New York's electrifying lead."
said Loup. "In addition, we have
endorsed a ten-point series of
recommendations for community
action in response to the conflict
in which Israel's people are en-
gaged to protect the inhabitants

wrought in Galilean settlements

by Yehuda Blum, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Nations.
Standing beside the President
on the South Lawn, Begin told
reporters that he had "held a
very fruitful discussion with the
President and his advisers." He
said that "Israel will withdraw all
of its troops" from Lebanon "as
soon as possible," adding that

Messenger From Israel
On Thursday this young man
was fighting in Lebanon and on
Friday he picked up his bag,
which his brother had packed, in
Tel Aviv and flew to the United
This energetic, enthusiastic
messenger from Israel, Amnon
Naftali, will be living and work-
ing with our Tampa families two
months this summer. Specifically
he will be working at the Jewish
Community Center Day Camp
teaching Israeli music, folk danc-
ing, and history.
Naftali, 26, comes from a
wonderfully large family in Jeru-
salem. He is the eldest of six
brothers and two sisters. He says
each Shabbat is a glorious, happy
party. He is an electrical engineer
and assistant director of Techni-
cal High School "Merckar
Noaar." He also teaches at the
Michlelet ORT school.
Naftali entered the army in
1974, at this time he is a lieuten-
ant. He stated when he joined the
police action started on June 5, it
was to clean out a twenty-five
mile area between Mt. Hennon
and Nabitaya. To make a buffer
zone free of the PLO. The army
continued on to Demur, cutting
the main supply line between
Lebanon and Syria. From there
they destroyed the Beirut airport
and surrounded the city. This
was their first encounter with
urban warfare. We hope that by
Amnons return to Israel on
August there will be peace in ell
the area.
Besides his other professions
Amnon has a degree in dance and
is a professional folk dancer.
During these past 10 years he has
Amnon Naftali and JCC campers 1982
danced with the Hora Folk Danc-
ing Group, Sabras Folk Dancing
Group, and the Jerusalem Folk
lore Ensemble. He has traveled
thoughout Europe with these
groups and since 1981 has been a
professional dancer with the Jer-
usalem Folk Dancing Group.
They hope to tour in the United
States later this year.
Perhaps you would like to join
Amnon and learn Israeli folk
dances. There will be classes at
the Jewish Community Center
beginning July 6.

Community reaction has been
swift and dramatic. Within a
period of less than 48 hours after
the first of four telephone net-
works, communities wired more
than 84 million to UJA. Early
wires included 8250,000 from

for Project Renewal from Boston,
Mass; 8200.000 from Ft. Lauder-

ter the officers' meeting, a 81 mil-

In one community, major con-
tributors are arranging for per-
sonal bans in order to pay their
pledges immediately. A second
community has taken monies
from its trust funds to prepay its
full 1982 allocation to UJA.
A number of other communi-
ties across the country are carry-
ing out or have scheduled emer-
gency fundraising events, phone-
a-thons, telethons, community-
wide rallies, mail appeals and
media advertising campaigns.
UJA has made special print and
video material available national-
ly, virtually overnight.
To support these and all future
community cash and campaign
efforts, Loup stated, "All UJA
national and regional officers, all
constituency divisions and de-
partment, our total professional
staff and communications opera-
tion are ready to assist in any
way possible."

ing from July, 1981. "This was an
unsigned agreement," Begin em-
phasized. "We have never recog-
nized that organization and we
never will!"
This agreement, Begin ex-
plained, had three interpreta-
tions. Israel saw it as not having
the PLO attack anymore. The
PLO viewed it that that they
would not attack from Southern
Lebanon, but from anywhere
elese, it waa okay. And Special
Envoy Habib interpreted it as
stopping PLO attacks from
Israel's borders, but anywhere
else, it was okay. And Special
break of the agreement. "Athens,
Rome, London, Paris must be
safe for Israeli citizens from
attack!" the Prime Minister said.
Referring specifically to the
Peace for Galilee campaign,
Begin said the people in the
northern villages were out of the
shelters and would be able to stay
out. "The villages and towns are
no longer under seige. The Galilee
is now a peaceful part of the land
of Israel." The audience app
lauded soundly upon hearing that

which he said was captured
during the campaign. "This is a

U.S. Must Chart New Course: It's Either Oil or Honesty
Acting 101 teaches the beginning stu-
dent of the drama how to scowl. President
Reagan did a lot of scowling when he met
with Israel's Prime Minister Begin in the
Oval Office on Monday. He rates at least a
B grade for the performance. It places him,
comfortably, in the range of his other
dramatic performances when he was a
Hollywood professional.
What emerged from the meeting were
these things:
1) A clear demonstration of the Ad-
ministration's complete lack of a Middle
East policy hence all of Mr. Reagan's
scowling to show the world, especially
Araby, the American displeasure;
2) Mr. Begins unflinching stand that
Israel would not again be pressured into
more suicidal concessions;
3) A national need to lay all the prob-
lems of the Middle East at Israel's doorstep
as demonstrated in the media which re-
ported the meeting.
What also emerged was a stalemate.
For all the President's facial gymnastics,
he did not disagree because he could not.
The Reagan Administration's own state-
ments during the previous week about
Soviet adventurism throughout the world
must include Moscow's adventurism in the
Middle East via the Palestine Liberation
Organization and its clients in Syria.
How to separate Israel's lethal blow
against the Soviet Union's prestige in the
Middle East from the American displeasure
with Israel's campaign in Lebanon? Mr.
Reagan could not. Neither can anyone else,
except, of course, for the pinstripe boys in
the State Department and the mustachioed
savants at Georgetown University's For-
eign Affairs School, such as our former
Ambassador to the United Nations Donald
McHenry. who would atomize Israel in an
instant if it only were in their power. And,
inevitably, the media.
But stalemate is dangerous. Up
against the wall now. the Administration
must finally take a stand and make a
choice: either oil or honesty.
Welcome, B'nai B'rith
We welcome District 5, B'nai B'rith to its
convention beginning here this weekend in
Bal Harbour. Distinguished leaders of the
national B'nai B'rith scene will be in our
community to take part in the delibera-
We are especially delighted to be able to
take note of the many South Florida
leaders of B'nai B'rith who will be taking
part in the almost week-long agenda.
From Jack Spitzer, president of the
national organization, to District 5's presi-
dent, Meyer Eisenberg, and Nathan Perl-
mutter, national director of the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith, the agenda
will address a wide variety of American
Jewish concerns.
The range is wide: marriage problems in
the Jewish family, motivation management
in Jewish organizations, B'nai B'rith's
growing commitments to programs for the
aging, the ADL's vigilant eye on what ap-
pears to be a resurgent anti-Semitism in the
United States and abroad.
! This is but the barest fraction of what is
shaping up to be a rich and varied series of
sessions, among them significantly, one
devoted to the key areas of B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization, the bedrock of B'nai
B'rith's future Jewish leadership.
1 We wish the convention well in its delib-
erations. We are happy they will be in
south Florida's midst.
For Those Special Kids
Summer vacation time for kids out of
school is at hand. Still, it is not too early to
think of the fall. Particularly so for parents

of children with learning disabilities who
need special academic attention.
The Department of Jewish Special Edu-
cation of the Central Agency for Jewish
Education recognizes the academic and
emotional needs of children with learning
disabilities. For the last four years, the De-
partment has conducted special classes in
Jewish education specifically tailored to the
needs of these youngsters, and parents
should know about this as they plan for the
Guidelines for these programs include
small classes, modified curricula, allevia-
tion of pressure, and success-oriented
tasks. Children who attend these classes
are made to feel that they are an integral
part of their Jewish heritage and commu-
nity, whether it be through rote-learning,
transliteration of Hebrew, cultural and
Judaic immersion, or pre-Bar and Baa
Mitzvah lessons.
! Children with specific learning disabili-
ties present a constellation of problems
that must be addressed. One of the most
basic areas of concern in the learning dis-
abled child is ego-strength and self-image.
The constant frustration and failure these
children face destroy any positive feelings
that they may have about themselves. It
soon becomes difficult to differentiate the
academic problem from the emotional com-
The problem for them is magnified when
children with learning problems are in-
volved in regular congregation school
classes. Frequently, they are frustrated,
d is tractable, have difficulty with the writ-
ten or spoken word, or cannot stay on task
for too long a time. However, they are in-
telligent boys and girls, for whom specific
teaching techniques, classroom manage-
ment, and sensitive interactions are crucial
to their capacity to learn.
Jewish education is the perfect vehicle
for transmitting a value system and a
structure with which learning disable
youngsters can identify. Jewish education
can provide the emotional foundation and
participation for all Jewish children who
would like to become committed to the
Jewish community.
The Department of Jewish Special Edu-
cation's specialized skills in these things
can help a youngster with a learning disa-
bility toward a fuller and more fruitful
Jewish life.
Effort Documented
Israel Launches Lebanese Victim Aid
Israel disclosed this
week the extensive
humanitarian efforts it has
undertaken on behalf of i
Lebanese civilians in need
of medical attention or
other forms of relief as a re-
sult of the fighting in that
country. Many of them, be-
gun during the heat of bat-
tle, are continuing as a re-
sult of preparations made
during the first week of
fighting. They involve joint
efforts by government
agencies, the Israeli army
and volunteer agencies.
The Cabinet appointed a com-
mittee headed by Economic
Minister Yaacov Meridor to coor-
dinate the various activities. The
Defense Ministry"set up a special
unit to assist the civilian popula-
tion in Lebanon Premier Mena
chem Begin welcomed an Ameri-
can proposal that the two coun-
tries work together for
humanitarian aid. He appointed
David Kimche. director general
of the Foreign Ministry, to repre-
sent Israel on a joint committee
with the U.S.
DURING THE fighting in
Lebanon, Israeli Military heli-
copters air-lifted women in the
advanced stages of pregnancy to
hospitals in Israel. Israel army
doctors were flown to the battle
front to treat the civilian popula-
tion. The medical force estab-
lished special facilities for the use
of local residents. Their purpose
was to keep existing medical cen-
ter operative in cooperation with
local health institutions and with
medical representatives of the
United Nations and the Inter-
national Red Cross.
At the same time, Israeli hos-
pitals were opened to Lebanese
civilians in need of medical treat-
ment and special attention was
given mothers with new-born in-
fants. The government hospital
in Nahariya is currently treating
10 patients with kidney ailments
who need dialysis. Israeli
authorities estimate there are
presently about 100 Lebanese re-
ceiving treatment at hospitals in
A medical delegation consist-
ing of 70 doctors, other staff and
-0 ambulances was sent to Leba-
non at the end of last week to
help rehabilitate civilians in the
coastal towns which were es-
pecially hard hit in the fighting.
The government has provided a
grant of 600.000 Shekels for the
needs of 15 hospitals in Tyre and
IN ANOTHER area of relief,
the army began the distribution
of food products and commodi-
ties in Lebanese cities and towns
within a day or two of their cap-
ture by Israeli forces. The army
also supplied water tanks, tenta
and temporary housing for
bombed-out civilians. The Cen-
tral Fuel Administration is sup-
plying gasoline and heating oil to
Lebanese towns.
Large scale volunteer relief

Abas Nathan, the former "Peace
&. ^caster, the Magen
David Adorn and Na'anat
(Pioneer Women). All Magen
David Adorn stations in the
country collected thousands o(
food items, clothing and blanket*
for Lebanese civilians. The orga-
nization also established a bank
account to receive donations for
the Lebanese people.
Na-amat, in cooperation with
the newspaper Yediol Achronol
and Voice of Israel Radio, opened
temporary shelters for mothers
and babies in Tyre and Sidon.
More than 1,000 Jewish and Arab
families in Israel have volun-
teered to host mothers and chil-
dren from Lebanon. Kibbutzim
have offered shelter for hundreds
of Lebanese war refugees and
Lebanese merchants are being
permitted to buy goods in Israel
THE ARMY is working ton-
store public order in cities and
towns occupied by Israeli forces
It appointed commanders w
work jointly with the local
mayors. In some towns, the local
police have resumed their dun*
Work has also begun to restore
commerce and banking systems
The army meanwhile is repairing
damaged roads and water pip"
As a result, hundreds of civuiani
who fled south Lebanon as the
Israelis advanced, are returning
to their homes.

Kameroff Insurance Agency, and
his wife Gloria have been mem-
bers of Congregation Schaarai
Zedek since 1974, when they
arrived in Tampa. When the
Temple Hospitality Committee
was formed four years ago, Ban-
worked deligently as a member of
that committee and two years
ago assumed the responsibility of
chairing that committee. Under
his leadership the duties of that
committee were expanded to in-
sure that everyone, especially the
newcomer, was made to feel wel-
come and part of the Temple
family. In that spirit, Barr or-
ganized two New Years Eve
parties. For the past three years,
he and Gloria chaired the Family
Seders, tremendously successful
events. All of Barr's activities re-
flect the love and devotion he has
for the Temple and his desire to
transfer those feelings to all
members. So it follows that as he
continues to strive toward that
goal his next responsibility will
be that of Membership chairman.
Barr is committed to continuing
the growth of the Temple.

Asked to *efl*ij}: on receiving
the President's yup, Barr stated,
"I am honored to have received
this award. There is a certain
satisfaction in doing something
for others without compensation.
For me the satisfaction is in the
doing." The Temple is grateful
for all of Arnold Barr's doing.
{Consul General Arnon Visits Tampa Bay
Joel Arnon, Consul General of
[Israel, stationed in Miami,
Ivisited Tampa on a whirlwind
|speaking tour of Florida on June
17. About sixty of Tampa's Jew-
lish community and others sym-
I pathetic to Israel met for the 8:30
|a.m. meeting.
Arnon's objective was to meet
I with the opinion makers and de-
Icision makers of the various com-
[munities and explain what Israel
I was doing in Lebanon.
This action has been called
"Operation Peace for the
Gallilee." "Israel does not want a
single inch of Lebanese territory.
We only want a secure 25 mile
buffer zone, where no long range
artillery or rockets can fire on an
Israeli town." stated Arnon.
A plea was made to dissemin-
late accurate information to
neighbors and friends about the
reasons for Israels action.
Gary Alter, executive director
I of the Tampa Jewish Federation,
stated that $125,000 has already
been wired to the UJA office to
be sent to Israel. This money is
only used for human services, but
it frees up Israeli money for mili-
tary purposes. He urged every-
one to consider increasing their
pledge to the Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration-United Jewish Appeal
1982 campaign.

In addition, Menachem Perl-

will be a guest at the home of Mr.

come honorary chairman of the
Advisory Board.
According to those planning
the event, tribute will be paid to
the Jews who fought back with
weapons and flame in the ghettos
and those who prayed in defiance
of the edicts that group worship
was forbidden. In addition, tri-
bute will also be paid to the
teachers who continued to teach
secretly although .they did so at
the peril of their lives.
"We will remember those who
printed the illegal leaflets of defi-
ance and those who secretly dis-
tributed them in the face of
severe punishment. And we will
remember those who fought with
the partisan forces in the forests
and caves and harrassed the Nazi
oppressors at every oppor-
tunity," Meed said.
The officers of the World
Gathering proffered scrolls of ap-
preciation to several groups and
persons who had helped with fi-
nancial and moral support to ad-
vance the historic World Gather-
ing in Jerusalem which saw
10,000 survivors from 23 coun-
tries assemble for the first time
Among those receiving the
scrolls from Ernest W. Michel as
World Gathering chairman were:
WNBC newscaster Gabe Press-
man for his TV documentary of
the 1981 World Gathering en-
titled. "To Bear Witness .";
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions; and the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Both Meed and Michel said
that the preliminary talks with
leaders of American and Cana-
dian Jewish survivor and com-
munity organizations here
elicited enthusiastic support for
the April 11-14 Washington, D.C.
American Gathering.
Jewish organizations were
urged not to schedule any public
or private meetings, events or
celebrations for the Week of Re-
membrance in 1983. This week
will start on Sunday, April 10
(which corresponds to the 27th
day of Nissan, Yom Hashoah).
On that date, it was under-
scored, local communities could
plan events prior to departures
for Washington, D.C.
In an answer to those who have
been writing or phoning World
Gathering headquarters at One
Park Avenue in New York City
requesting information on rela-
tives or friends, Meed announced
that a major function of the
American Gathering will be the
establishment of a National
Registry of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors reading in the U.S.A.
and Canada.

Full Romantic Victorian
Program and Picnic Benefit
The Actors Workshop of
Tampa is sponsoring a garden
party on Sunday June 27 to as-
sist Lola Sherbert with her need
to raise funds for a medical
evaluation and liver transplant.
Mrs. Sherbert, a former em-
ployee of Tampa General Hos-
pital, was forced to resign from
her job when she became too ill

known treatment short of a liver
transplant that will reverse her
liver damage.
Those attending the benefit
will be eligible for door prizes and
the first 24 ladies dressed in Vic-
torian clothing will receive the
gift of a rose.
The benefit with the theme of a
Victorian garden party will
feature fashion shows, music,
skits, and comedy, an antique car
show, a bake sale, clowns and
balloons for the children.
The benefit for Mrs. Sherbert
will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
at the Seminole Garden Center,

hotels in Mexico, to shares in
London exclusive Harrod's de-
partment store, to ownership of
the Observer, one of the World's
leading newspapers.
LONRHO has extensive
economic interests in the Arab
World. It is engaged in a large
scale agricultural project in the
Sudan, in partnership with the
governments of Saudi Arabia,
Kuwait, Egypt and Sudan, and
private Libyan businessmen.
The company has business in-
terests in the United Arab Emir-
ates and is a partner in the Egyp-
tian Ismaila Transport Company.
But beyond these, the ruling
family of Kuwait owns 15 percent
of the shares on LONRHO. How-
ever.^his is not a governmental
investment, but rather private
through the Sheikh Sabah al
Sabah, the Minister of Foreign
Affairs and brother of the rules of
Kuwait, and the Minister's two
sons, Sheikh Nasser and Sheikh
Hamdad. Since these invest-
ments total some 40 million
-nds Sterling, it is difficult to
imagine that LONRHO's in-
volvement in Israel could occur
without a reaction from the Arab
Boycott Office.
Accordingly, this was the first
question I posed to Mr. Rowland
in a telephone interview. Mr.

ger, Bert Xireen, and Gregory
Renominated to the board
Viktor Dobrovitsky, Ronna Fox,
Audrey Haubenstock, Nancy
Linsky, Sam Reiber, Stephen
Segall, and Nancy Verkauf.
Rowland's reaction was: "I am
not afraid of the Arab Boycott.
Why should I be? The Boycott
Office in Damascus is one big
stupidity. They never deterred
and will never deter a multi-na-
tional corporation from main-
taining business contacts with
Israel. It may be that small com-
panies will be influenced by the
Boycott Office; small companies
rive in to ail kinds of pressures.
The Boycott Office never suc-
ceeded in deterring a major multi-
national corporation. I very well
remember the attempt to influ-
ence Coca Cola. What happened?
Nothing. Coca Cola has a com-
pany in Israel."
Question: Aren't you afraid
that your partners, the Kuwait
ruling family, will withdraw their
investments from LONRHO?
Answer: No, I'm not afraid
and is essence it doesn't bother
me. My Kuwait partners are in-
volved in the company as private
investors and not as (.fye Govern-
ment of Kuwait, f know the
Sheikhs, Nasser and Hamad very
well. They are only interested in
money, profits. After all they do
understand business.
Question: Nevertheless, what
would happen if the Boycott Of-
fice would put pressure on them?
Answer: My experience with
them is not bad. They've already
tried several times to persuade
me to comply with the boycott.
Their London representative
warned us. However, it always
ended up with several good
luncheons and nothing else. They
only threaten and their threats
last for a week, no longer.
Question: Why did you decide
to invest in Israel only now?
Answer: To tell the truth, I al-
ways had connections with Isra-
el. 1 visited many times, I knew
Moshe Dayan. But now, when
the Peace Treaty with Egypt is
being fully implemented with the
evacuation of Sinai, I concluded
that the time is appropriate. I re-
member that President Sadat
told me that the implementation
of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty
will end the enmity of the Arab
World to Israel and that he,
Sadat, would encourage Arab
and African countries to enter
into relations with Israel. I can
reveal to you that we intend to
invite Israel investors to invest in
our Egyptian company, Ismaila
Transport Company.

of shade and fuel in the desert; its
wood was used in the construc-
tion of the arh of the covenant.
Of the many types of trees
planted in Israel by the Jewish
National Fund, the acacia tree,
its forlorn beautv so familiar to
desert travelers, has the finest
Pedigree. This sturdy desert
plant is one of the most impor-
tant staffs of life in the wilder-
ness regions of the Middle East.
Indeed, it was one of the main
supports for the Children of
Israel during the Exodus from
Scattered widely through
Sinai, the Negev and Judean
deserts, the acacia trees served
those early Israelites well: They
provided shade in an area where
temperatures can reach 150
degrees; they provided the only
good firewood in the desert
and on these fires were cooked
the first matzot; Ahev .provided
highly-nutritious ^tSjftwfor the
livestock which accasjgjBnied tne
Children of Israel; thyprovided
food (indeed, the sap of this tree
is still commonly used as a food
thickener); and they provided
building material for many
necessary objects.
But most important, the acacia
provided the raw material for the
Ark of the Covenant:
"And let them make me a
sanctuary: that I may dwell a-
mong them.
"According to all that I show
thee, after the patterns of the
tabernacle, and the pattern of the
instruments thereof, even so shall
ye make it.
"And they shall make an ark of
acacia wood": (Exodus 25:8-10)
Many tribes wandering
through the deserts of the Middle
East 33 centuries ago un-
doubtedly used the acacia for
fuel, food and shelter. But it was
the construction of the Ark which
distinguished the Children of Is-
It was only after Moses built
the Ark, only after the presence
of the Creator was established a-
mong the people, that he received
the Law. And it was the Law
which made the Children of Israel
different from all other desert
The construction of the Ark
was among the first instructions
Moses received on Mount Sinai.
And the instructions were speci-
fic: "And they shall make an ark
of acacia wood: two cubits and a
half shall be the length thereof,
and a cubit and a half the breadth
thereof, and a cubit and a half the
height thereof." (Exodus 25:10)
A cubit was a common meas-
ure of antiquity, a useful unit as
portable as a man's arm. It is the
measure from the tip of a man's
fingers to the end of his elbow,
and for most men this is just
about 18 inches. The Ark of the
Covenant measured about 46
inches long by 27 inches wide and
27 inches high.
Testimony to the durability of
acacia is found in the Book of
Chronicles, where we are told
that the Ark was carried into
Solomon's Temple and set in a
place of honor hundreds of years
after Moses had built it. It should
also be recalled that this Ark of
acacia wood was not protected in
a museum for the intervening
centuries. It was carried every-
where, including into battle. Once
it was captured by the Philis-
tines. Later, it was returned to
Israel, and continued to be
carried about through the various
campaigns to consolidate control
of the land.
The living acacia of the desert
can also be regarded as a type of
Ark. It ia a shrine of the Creator,
a temple of Nature.
Around the acacia gathers life.
Perched high in its branches one
may sometimes find the rare
lappet-faced vulture the great
Osnia Hanegev of Israel an
enormous bird with wing span of
nearly 10 feet. Within its
branches nests the bulbul, a
sprightly bird known for its ex-
traordinary nest constructions.
Among the many other crea-
tures which depend on the acacia,
one may chance to see a Nubian
ibex climbing about inside the
The delicate gazelle does not
climb so well, but it is often to be
found on the ground beneath this
tree. Here, shaded from the sun,
the gazelle can forage for the pro-
tein-rich seed pods shed by the
Both man and beast find
refuge in the acacia.

The first stage is to ban ag-
gressive war, he said Friday. The#
second stage is negotiation of a
nuclear non-aggression pact by
the nuclear powers. The third
state is the establishment of nu-
clear weapon free zones, he said.
IN REGARD to the first
stage, he said, "Self-defense is
the sacred duty and right of man.
As long as tyranny is armed,
liberty must have and develop
weapons for its defense. Other-
wise, slavery will engulf all of
mankind and all the pacts and
visions will be in vain."
He added "what should be
banned, denounced and re-
nounced, is aggressive war
whether by conventional or by
nuclear weapons."
On the second stage of his pro-
posal, Begin said the nuclear
powers should negotiate a nu-
clear non-aggression pact. "They
should undertake not to attack
each other or any other country
with those deadly weapons, the
only exception being, if they, or
their allies, are attacked with
such weapons.".
On the third stage of his pro-
posal, he said it should be
modeled after the Tlatloko
Treaty of Latin America, a treaty
for creation of nuclear free zones
tn Latin America. "Israel is pre-
pared to negotiate and sign such
a treaty with all her neighbors in
the Middle East," he said.
lief that the day would come
when the vision of Israeli
prophets of peace in the world
will prevail. He concluded "we J
can do it. All of us can do it. Even .
with animosity, even with a state
of war ... let us meet. Let us
shake hands, talk peace to each,
make agreements and all of us
will change the course of history
of our nations."
