Begin: 'I Didn't Know in Advance' About Massacre of Palestinians
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Men-
achem Begin told the commission of in-
quiry into the Beirut massacre Monday
that he did not know in advance that the
Christian Phalangist forces were to be ad-
mitted to the Sabra and Shatila refugee
camps as part of the Israel Defense Force's
operation to seize west Beirut following the
assassination of President-Elect Bashir
Gemayel on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Begin told the three-member panel that he only
learned of this, along with the rest of the Cabinet, at
a Cabinet meeting on Thursday evening, Sept. 16,
several hours after the Phalangists entered the
camps. He conceded that there had been fears of
revenge-killings by Christians of Moslems in the
wake of Gemayel's assassination. But he insisted re-
peatedly that "none of us ever imagined" that the
Phalangists would perpetrate a massacre. "It never
crossed our minds,' the Premier said.
HE SAID no "red warning lights" had been kind-
led in his own mind, or in the minds of other minis-
ters, when both Deputy Premier David Levy and
Chief of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan warned, during that
Thursday evening Cabinet session, that the Phal-
angists miffht commit killings among the Palestin-

33 Jews Elected to Congress
I (JTA) Thirty-three Jews
were elected to Congress,

the House, in the national
elections Nov. 2. Including
I the four Jewish Senators
whose terms were not up
this year, the 98th Con-
gress which takes office in
January will have 37 Jews
compared to 33 in the cur-
rent Congress.
The Senate victories included
two incumbents who won their
second terms. Sens. Howard
Metzenbaum (I)., Ohio) and Ed-
ward Zorinsky (D., Neb.), and
two newcomers, Frank Lauten-
berg (D., N.J.) and Chic Hecht
THE HOUSE victors included
22 incumbents and seven new-
comers. The seat of one incum-
bent, Rep. Elliott Levitas (D.,
Ga.) will not be decided until
Nov. 30 because of redistricting
difficulties. Rep. Bob Sha-
manasky (D., Ohio) was the
only incumbent to be defeated.
Another incumbent, Rep. Marc
Marks (1).. Pa.) did not seek re-
election after three terms.
The election, with Jews win-
ning Senate seats for the first
time in New Jersey and Nevada
and House seats in Alabama and
Virginia, demonstrated that Jews
can be elected on issues that have
no immediate effect on the Jew-

A substantial margin of
votes for Lt. Gov. Mario
Cuomo in heavily Jewish
populated districts of New
York City helped the liberal
Democrat become the first
Italian American to be
elected Governor of New
York State last week.

statewide plurality was about
12,000 votes.
THERE WERE no Jewish is-
sues in the gubernatorial contest -
The only matter remotely of Jew-
ish interest was the fact that
Lehrman's wife is an Episcopal-
ian, a matter he discussed freely
at an appearance before the New
York Board of Rabbis last
month. He is a member of two
The campaign was fought
mainly over the economy, the
death penalty and crime. Cuomo,
who defeated Mayor Edward
Koch in the September Demo-
cratic primaries for Governor, is
an established liberal in the New

tions. Lehrman, a millionaire who
spent over $7 million of his own
on a media blitz campaign, is
a proponent of supply side eco-

Jews apparently voted on the
basis of the candidates' ideologi-
cal differences rather than their
ethnic background. Cuomo's lib-
eral credentials, not Lehrman's
Jewish origin, is believed to have
accounted for the strong support
the Republican candidate had
from some Hasidic and other
ultra-Orthodox Jews.

Marie's Story: The Other Side of the Fence

METULLA. Israel Metulla
could be a hilltop village in
Switzerland. The green valley.
The sun-warmed scent of apples
from foothill orchards. The red
rooftops on the gracious homes
lining the main street, looking
like chalets. Small hotels and
pensions, in the European
manner, for tourists and vaca-
tioners. Over all, a sense of
abiding peace. .
The illusion passes. Metulla is
a border town in Israel's embat-
tled north, a slender fingertip be-
tween Syria and Lebanon.
Pointing to a cross-hatched
wiring unique to boundaries that
divide natii-n from nation, this
one the Good Fence
beckons and invites And this
is the story of Marie, who walks
through its gateway every
morning into Israel and walks
back again every night.
Marie lives on the other side of
the fence, in Lebanon. For eight
years, since the Lebanese Civil
War in 1974-75. her Arab Chris-
tian village was a tragic mirror

her. They come out jaggedly.

Only One Senate Foreign Relations
Committee Change, 10 Due for House
The new Congress that
takes office in January is
expected to see only one
change in the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee
but at least 10 new faces in
the House Foreign Affairs
However, these two important
committees where much of the is-
sues affecting Israel are discuss-
ed and voted upon are expected
to continue their pro-Israel
stances despite their chairmen.
Sen. Charles Percy (R., 111.) and
Rep. Clement Zablocki ID., Wis.)

Israel and supportive of the
THE SENATE committee
opening was caused by the de-
cision of Sen. S. I. Hayawaka (R.,
Calif.) not to seek reelection. The
three other committee members
whose terms were up this year
Sens. Richard Lugar (R., Ind.l,
Paul Sarbanes II).. Md.) and Ed-
ward Zorinsky (D., Neb.) all
Zorinsky, who is Jewish, and
Lugar. voted for the sale of
AWACS to Saudi Arabia last
year, although Zorinsky first
voted against it in the committee
and then supported in the final
floor vote. But Sarbanes, a mem-
ber of the Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs subcommit-
tee, has been a staunch and im-
portant supporter of Israel in the
In the House, the major de
velopment was the defeat of Rep.
Paul Findley (R., Ill), who has
not only been critical of Israel but
has been considered by some as
the chief spokesman for the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion in Congress. Findley was the
ranking minority member of the
Foreign Affairs subcommittee on
Europe and the Middle East and
used this position for frequent at-
tacks on Israel.
REP. Paul McCloskey IK.,
Calif.), another supporter of the
PLO, did not seek reelection, but
instead made an unsuccessful bid
for the Republican nomination as
candidate for governor of Calif-
ornia. McCloskey has publicly
attacked what he called the in-
fluence of American Jews on U.S.
foreign policy. Last summer, he
visited PLO chief Yasir Arafat in
Beirut and emerged with a docu-
ment in which he said Arafat
recognizes Israel which was later
Incidentally, in a story in the
Riyadh newspaper, Al-Jazirah,
Oct. 20, the Saudi Arabian news-
paper's Washington Bureau
warned that Findley's defeat
could have "serious consequen-
ces" for the Saudis, Palestinians
and other Arabs.
"He (Findley) is a major
stumbling block in the face of the
Zionists and their supporters,"
the paper said, somewhat ex-
aggerating the Illinois Congress-
man's influence. "But he is not
the only one," the newspaper
added. It listed the others as
Percy and Zablocki.
cheers supporters of Israel, the
new House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee will also be without sev-
eral strong supporters of Israel.
Among the Democrats. Rep.
Jonathan Bingham of New York
did not seek reelection because of
reapportionment, and Rep. Bob
Shamansky of Ohio was the only
Jewish Congressman defeated in
the Nov. 2 elections.
On the Republican side, Rep.
Edward Derwinski, a ranking
minority member who champions
Israel, was defeated in the
Republican primary in Illinois
last spring. He has been appoint-
ed State Department Counselor
by President Reagan. Rep.
Robert Dornan was an unsuc-
cessful candidate for governor of
California and Rep. Millicent
Fenwick was defeated by Demo-
crat Frank Lautenberg in the
New Jersey Senate race.
On the more favorable side.
Rep. Dante Fascell ID.. Fla.). a
leading supporter of Israel, was
reelected after a tough contest
and is the ranking Democrat with
the retirement of L. H. Fountain
of North Carolina after Zablocki,
the chairman. The ranking
Republican member. Rep. Wil-
liam Broomfield of Michigan is
also a friend of Israel.

She gets up from her chair,
comes to stand directly in front of
me. a 53 year old woman, solid of
body. She has borne four chil-
dren, two sons and two daugh-
ters. She has grandchildren. She
lifts the hem of her simple black
dress to show me, woman to

legs and thighs, then pushes at
her sleeves to expose the burn
marks on her arms.
They did that. The PLO. If
the Israelis didn't stop them,
they might have killed us all. For
eight years, we were suffering all

afterwards they had to amputate
his legs. It was a nightmare."
Marie smoothes the hem of her
skirt, sits down again opposite
me. As she talks, she twists a bit
of grey cleaning rag in her hands,
then spreads it out flat and
presses it down hard on her lap,
as if to push the painful memories

on. "Our land was there, but we

However, he emphasized,

ACCORDING TO public opin-
ion polls. Bookbinder went on,
American support for Israel
appeared to diminish during and
after the recent Lebanese war.
However, he pointed out, "there
was no political backlash against
pro-Israeli candidates in yester-
day's elections, and the new Con-
gress will probably act on Middle
East issues very much as the pre-
sent one would. Basic support
and identification with Israel, it
is safe to assume, remains essen-

Nevertheless, Bookbinder
warned, "it would be a great mis-
take to take continued support on

Cabinet action ordering a full in-
quiry into the Beirut massacre,
there were many signs of unhap-
piness and impatience with Israel
from some of Israel's best friends
in both Congress and the Ad-
ministration ... If Israel's Cabi-
net had not ordered that probe,
there might well have been some
political repercussions in this
The Israeli Cabinet action, he
continued, "not only cut off
American criticism of Israel, but
inspired some of the most lauda-
tory statements ever made about
Israel. Many now said that the

was indeed a solid democracy
whose leaders could not ignore
the demands of its people that Is-
rael live up to the high moral
standards on which the nation
was based."

| France for Frenchmen
Believe it or not, new anti-Semitic incidents are
| being reported in Paris. As if they haven't had
| enough of them, and as if the French police don't
| seem to be sufficiently baffled so as not to be able to
| apprehend anybody, now Jewish Parisians in the
| suburb of Garges-les-Gonesse are finding their shops
I marked with huge hate-filled slogans, among them,
I '' France for Frenchmen only.''
We've got an idea. Next war the French decide
i to quit fighting for their freedom, why don't we
I Americans just let them lose their liberte, egalite,
\ fraternite instead of rescuing them from their own
I philosophical malaise and returning them to the
I undisputed ownership of gay Paree so that they can
i start lecturing us forever more about food, wine,
morality and the like?
That'll really leave France for Frenchmen only
or for any other country that just happens along
and invades.
A Forgotten Fact
| United Way Appeal
You'd have to be hard-pressed to recall any
polite inquiries made of that great libertarian,
President Amin Gemayel of Lebanon, when he was
here visiting the other week, telling everybody that
Israel better get out first and fast.
No one asked Gemayel, for starters if nothing
else, hey how come his Christian Phalangists went
into those Palestinian camps and massacred all those
innocent Palestinians?
Hey, Mr. President, how come you don't have
an official Commission of Inquiry in which you hold
an honest investigation into this massacre where all
those lives were lost in the name of revenge for the
assassination of your dear departed brother, who was
also a great libertarian?
Fact is, no one in Washington did anything but
listen in an aura of being bewitched to all of the items
he brought along on a shopping list of assistance for
his country.
The hypocrites on Capitol Hill and in the White
House wouldn't, just for the heck of it, remember an
eentsy, weentsy fact, now would they? And that is
that both Gemayels would still be fighting Yasir
Arafat Wild West style on the streets of Beirut (and
losing) if Israel hadn't come by to give them back
their country in the first place.
United Way General
; Campaign Chairman John Benbow has made one
j more appeal to the community to dig a little deeper.
With less than two weeks until the conclusion of the
1982 campaign, volunteers have raised $9.2 million,
I or 60 percent of the $15.4 million goal. According to
United Way, latest projections indicate that, at the
; current rate of giving, the final total will fall only
1 slightly higher than last year.
We don't need to site all the statistics on in-
I flation and cost of living to declare that if this
happens, the community's human care agencies will
I have to do without critically-needed funding in-
i creased to provide additional services such as day
1 care, hot meals, home care for the elderly, and
I programs to prevent and treat child abuse.
United Way President Octavio Verdeja suggests I
| that United Way knew it was taking a risk to set the
| campaign goal 15 percent above last year that if
; the economy didn't improve, United Way might not
= achieve its goal.

Evangelical Support for Israel Urged
Dr. Harold M. Jacobs, president of the
National Council of Young Israel, is continuing
his effort to elicit support for Israel from
Christian Evangelical leaders, while pressing
Catholic representatives for a response to
criticism of Pope John Paul's recent meeting with
Yasir Arafat in Rome.
As a result of the contacts of the Young Israel
movement, strong positive statements in support
of Israel have been forthcoming from such Evan
gical Christian leaders as Albert H. Chubb, presi-
dent and general manager of a central Florida re-
ligious radio station, and other prominent reli-
gious broadcasters from across the country.
At a recent meeting of Young Israel national
delegates, Doug Krieger, of the TAV Evangelical
ministries, issued a blistering statement con-
demning Pope John Paul's meeting with Arafat
on religious and moral grounds.

public Editor Martin Peretz, State Department

Maynard I. Wishner head the list of speakers who
addressed AJC's annual national Executive
Council meeting Thursday through Sunday, Nov.
4 to 7, in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Other speakers included Gershon Avner, po-
litical affairs director of AJC's Israel Office; Hy-
man Bookbinder, AJC Washington represents

The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
has appointed Jess N. Hordes director of special
projects and associate director of the League's
Washington, D.C. civil rights office.
Hordes' responsibilities will cover domestic and
international affairs, particularly in the area of
the League's work with the executive and legisla-
tive branches of the federal government.
The Washington office, directed by David A.
Brody. represents the League in its relations with
the White House, Congress, federal agencies,
and national organizations headquartered in
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the Executive of the
Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organiza-
tion, has invited the B'nai B'rith to join the WZO
as a full-fledged member, actively participating in
all its actions and decisions.
In his address to the delegates of its interna-
tional convention in Toronto, Dulzin invited
B'nai B'rith "to move from the consultation level
to the decision-maIrlrig level" in its relationship
B'nai B'rith to move beyond just carrying out
projects for Israel and the Jewish people."
Scholars and theologians representing all
branches of Judaism met in Israel at a Conference
on Jewish Unity sponsored by Bar-Han Univer-
sity to explore areas of mutual cooperation within
the framework of halacha (Jewish law).
Dr. Emanuel Rackman, president of Bar-Ilan
University, delivered the keynote address. Warn-
ing of the danger caused by the gulf that divides
Orthodox, Conservative and Reform Judaism,
Dr. Rackman called for "ecumenism within thr
Jewish community" as a way to strengthen Jew
ish unity without compromising specific religious
The conference, at the Tadmor Hotel in Herzlia,
was sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Louis Mintz of
London, and attended by representatives of all
streams of Judaism. They heard suggestions
within the framework of Jewish law that would
enable Conservative and Reform rabbis to par-
ticipate in some matters of ritual and personal
status that traditionally have been the exclusive
domain of the Orthodox rabbinate in Israel
American Jewish Congress has commended the
Reagan Administration for supporting Israel
against attempts by the Arab nations and its al-
lies to expel the Jewish State from the United Na-
tions General Assembly.
Henry Siegman, executive director of the
AJCongress. also praised the Administration for
refusing to accept PLO representation among the
Arab League delegation during its visit to Wash-
ington. He urged Reagan "to stand fast against
Arab efforts to change U.S. policy from one of
continued support for the Camp David accords to
a policy favoring the Arab League position
adopted at the Fez meeting."
Edgar M. Bronfman, president of World Jew-
ish Congress, told delegates at the B'nai B'rith
convention last week in Toronto that recent
events "have marked a watershed in Israeli-
Diaspora relations" and that the Jewish people
have responded in the best tradition "of demo-
cracy, humanitarianism, and decency."
Declaring unrelenting "support for the idea and
the State that is Israel," Bronfman said "we take
jpride in its commitment to the democratic process
land its determination to examine, question and
even criticize itself."
Hi ;idded, "This process places on us an obliga
tion to examine in a constructive and critical way
government policies or actions which affect Jew-
ish life in the Diaspora as well as Israel." noting
ur approach has never been si'
aimed solely at one party or one government -
whether it be the government of David Ba
Lev i Kshkol. (Jolda Meir. Yitzhak Rabin
or Mcnachem Begin."

Jewish-Catholic Relations Need Boost
The American
Jewish Committee is urg-
ing that differences be-
tween the Jewish and
Catholic communities over
the recent audience granted
w PLO Chief Yasir Arafat,
by Pope John Paul II
should not be allowed to
impede the advances in
understanding and mutual
esteem which have marked
the relations between our
communities for the past
several decades.''
The view was expressed by
Maynard Wishner, AJCommittee
president, in a letter to his Emi-
nence Johannes Cardinal Wille-
brands, president of the Vatican
Commission on Religious Rela-
tions with the Jews. In a letter
addressed to Wishner, Wille-
brands sought to explain the
reasons why the Pope agreed to
receive Arafat. Both letters were
released to the press at the
AJCommittee's annual national
executive council meeting at the
Beverly Hilton Hotel.
t AM^N.?, THER "Plm*
tions, WiUebrands said that "the
fact that the Holy Father re-
ceives someone in audience is in
no way a sign of approval of all
the ideas and actions attributed
to that person."
The Cardinal also wrote that
"the Holy Father did not fail to
express to Mr. Arafat 'the hope
that an equitable and lasting
solution of the Middle East con-
flict should be reached,' a solu-
tion which, as he said during the
audience, should exclude re-
course to arms and violence of all
kinds, especially terrorism and
In his response, Wishner
stated that the AJCommittee did
not question "the honorable and
pacific intentions of the Pope."
"The Pope's hope," Wishner
continued, "for an 'equitable and
lasting solution of the Middle
East conflict' as his stated posi-
tion that such a solution should
'exclude resourse to arms and
violence of all kinds, especially
terrorism and reprisals,' are
shared by all persons of good will

A bitter-sweet comedy about

duction of "Vanities," assisted
by Pamela Sanders. Luter has
been the director of theatre at the
university since the fall of 1977.
Before coming to Tampa, he
spent three seasons with the Uni-
versity of Florida's touring Re-
pertory Theatre Company. .
Sanders, who is assistant to
the director of the Re-entry Pro-
gram for Women, received her
training in drama at the Graeme
Bent School of Drama in Mel-

cently appeared in the Tampa

HOWEVER. Wishner added,
"We do strongly disagree regard-
ing the impact of the audience
with Mr. Arafat on popular
opinion and its widespread inter-
pretation as an act of legitimiza-
tion for the organization which he
heads an organization which
has claimed credit for the murder
of innocent civilians, including
Christians, Muslims, and Jews,
and which has never departed
from its stated aim of destroying
the sovereign State of Israel."
Wishner took the occasion of
his letter to WiUebrands to repeat
calls for recognition of the State
of Israel both by the Arabs
and by the Holy See. "We fer-
vently share the Pope's hope,"
Wishner wrote, "that an equita-
ble and lasting solution of the
Middle East conflict will soon be
reached and his affirmation that
the recognition of Israel by the
Arabs is a basic condition for the
construction of that peace.
I "The logic of that important
I affirmation by the Pope does
argue, in our judgment, that the
recognition of Israel by the Holy
See would constitute a model of
moral courage and leadership
that would advance the cause of
peace and coexistence between
the Arab nations and Israel.
"We sincerely hope that such
Vatican recognition of Israel
would be forthcoming in the not
too distant future."

Friday, November l?
Facing Jewish History and Ourselves
(Partial text of remarks made
recently at UJA-Federation
Campaign Board meeting.)
Jews persisted for almost 4,000
years in the face of crisis,
triurrpb and tragedy because
that's what it meant to be a Jew.
It was too important to give up.
From Powerlessness to Power
In our lifetime, we are living
through one of the great
formations of that Jewish way. It
is the transformation from
powerlessness to power.
This undertaking to take
power is a reversal of almost
2,000 years of Jewish history. We
took this on in order to live, in or-
der to create new life. Jews
learned 40 years ago that if they
remained powerless, then total
death and degradation could and
would be inflicted on them. The
poor, minorities, women, the
third world many others
learned this same lesson from the
bitter Jewish experience. If Jews
wanted to live if we still be-
lieved what we taught 4,000
years ago, that life is going to win
out over death, that life can be
raised to a new level of dignity
we simply had no choice but to
take power and create a Jewish
state. This is why Jews over-
whelmingly became Zionist after
the Holocaust.
For the previous 18 centuries
of the Jewish way through his-
tory, we affirmed the dignity of
powerlessness. Jews suffered but
persisted with hope. We were a
battered people but we preserved
our families and relationships.
We demonstrated how Jews
could be sinned against yet would
not do unto others what was done
to them. That became an impor-
tant part of the sense of moral
rectitude that upheld Jews in
their isolation.
In modern times, even mar-
ginal Jews were sustained in their
identity by the memory that for
centuries Christians persecuted
Jews but Jews did not persecute
Christians. In truth, part of that
self-image was misleading. Jews
were in no position to persecute.
It is easy to be ethical when one
is toally weak; there isn't much
one can do. But in the modem
world, powerlessness was incom-
patible with the further existence
of good people. That was the les-
son of the Holocaust when we
were powerless, total death and
degradation resulted. So after
millennia, Jews undertook to as-
sume power.
The minute we undertook to
have a state and power of our
own, we like all nations
were bound to do evil, to commit
wrongs along the way. It borders
on racism to think that Jews are
incapable of such actions. The
Torah never claimed that the
Jews are a perfect people or were
chosen for intrinsic righteous-
ness. In the Bible, Jews often did
not live up to the higher goals of
the covenant when they exercised
power. Said the Rabbis: the
Torah was given to human be-
We took power in faithfulness
to the same purpose for which we
stood fast through centuries of
powerless suffering: the un-
broken belief that we could help
chart the course to a better world
by creating a model society along
the way. An honest statement of
what Jews undertook would be a
hopeful but tentative one. "We
are prepared to take the risks of
power even as we took the risks
of powerlessness. We will do our
best. We believe that we are
capable of performing morally
with that power; that is to say, if
we make errors, we will correct
them." But the creation of the
stale decisively changed our
moral condition
The test of a moral army is not
that :t never kills civilians bjit
that it will make every effort to
kill as few civilians as possible.
Innocent deaths are unavoidable
in war. A moral army will take
casualties to avoid killing
civilians, but that is its limit.
Failure to exercise sufficient
power or taking excessive casual-
ties is a form of moral abdication
because it lets evil triumph.
This is what Jews undertook;
the decisive commitment was
made only 40 years ago. There
were no ready-made structures of
action or of morality. How did we
get an army that fights so well in
only 40 years? The Institute for
International Studies of London
has estimated that Israel has the
fourth strongest army in the
world. Three million-plus Jews
have created a civilian army that
is not militaristic yet is the fourth
strongest in the world surely it
is testimony to overwhelming
necessity and it is a miracle.
But an even greater miracle
took place. The same kind of
creativity and training went into
making that army function
morally. After every war, armies
do a fundamental analysis of doc-
trine, weaponry, and tactics to
make sure that errors and inade-
quacies are corrected for the next
time. Officers are held accounta-
ble and careers are made or
broken. The Israeli army also un-
dertakes a similar exercise to in-
sure effective moral control in fu-
ture wars.
Jewish Morality and Power
So what happened at the Sabra
and Shatila camps? How could a
massacre planned and
executed by Phalangists hap-
pen in a camp located in an area
where the Israeli army had as-
sumed control? Obviously, all the
facts are not available until a full
inquiry is completed. Yet for
Jews driven by our memories
especially by memories of the
Holocaust which have left us per-
manently sensitive to killing of
women and children one need
not have all the facts to make a
basic judgment: Responsible
people must take appropriate re-
sponsibility even though the Is-
raelis did not do any killing. One
guesses that Israeli military offi-
cials believed that thousands of
well-armed PLO fighters were
hiding in these camps and that it
would be good for the Phalan-
gists their sworn enemies be-
cause they had been so cruel to
Christians to go in and clean
them out, in order to prevent
further Israeli casualties. So
there was a gross misjudgment
that the Phalangists would
concentrate on the fighters with
perhaps some unavoidable
civilian casualties, which turned
into devastating moral fallout
the massacre of men, women, and
children. Along the way, some
additional sins of omission may
have been committed when the
initial reports filtered out. One
hopes that the full significance of
what was happening was not
grasped at first. Distinctions
must never be obliterated the
Isralis did not kill, and they did
stop the massacre. Still, from
Prime Minister Begin on down
in light of the Holocaust the
argument that we only stood by
will not be accepted as an excuse.
The test of morality is not that
you do not ever perform this kind
of act. The test of morality is the
ability to correct and take re-
sponsibility. The people of Israel
and the political process of the
state have made that clear.
If American Jews want to take
a fair and ethically responsible
share in the Jewish assumption
of power, they must learn to
make morally realistic judgments
and to tone down the absolute
language which is more typical of
a righteous but powerless com-
munity. We have to have the
courage to admit that our judg-
ment as to what is moral can
lead, in the long run, to more
losses than the judgments of
those who would make much
prore hard-boiled decisions. Still
we make our judgment. Our
awareness of complexity does not
prevent us from taking ethical
stands or holding people respon-
sible. However, it should teach us
to speak with a certain moral
modesty. Judgments are flawed,
people are fallible.
True: A very important part of
our self-respect as Jews is that
Jews set a higher moral standard.
1 am not waiving that commit-
ment only insisting that the
standard operate in the real
world. Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple can be five percent better, or
ten percent more restrained, per-
haps twenty percent more judg-
mental of our own behavior. Hit-
ting such a level would make Is-
rael morally one of the greatest
nations in the world. But if you
are going to insist on the fantasy
that Israel must be perfect, must
never do wrong, then you do not
want a state. But if you do not
want a state, what you are really
saying is that you want a con-
tinuation of total Jewish
degradation and potential an-
Yet there are people who can-
not make peace with any civilian
casualties, any massacre however
unexpected. Sanah Hussain, an
Egyptian woman who called for
recognition of Israel before
Sadat, recently wrote that in
light of the Beirut incidents she
questions her judgment. Some
major rabbis have insisted that
Judaism must not be tainted by
Israel's sins and that the religion
can survive without the state. I
have concluded that if you insist
that Israel's right to exist de-
pends on its being perfect, if your
self-image as a Jew demands that
it never be morally compromised
in whatever way, then you are an
anti-Semite. This judgment is
true even if you are a devoted and
spiritual Jew. No other state in
the world is asked never to do
wrong; no other state is asked to
justify its existence by being
morally superior. The human
right to exist is an unqualified
right that is the basic Jewish
teaching to begin with. In this
case, Israel is practically the only
country whose right to exist is
continually denied by armed
neighboring states. Israel's
legitimacy is regularly assaulted
by large majorities in the United
Nations. So the double standard
comes close to being a peculiarly
vicious form of anti-Semitism
L*., moral collaboration wth at-
tempted genocide in the name
of morality.
Jews must particularly resist
these double standards because
they appeal deeply to an in-
grained instinct in us. Such judg-
ments exploit the Jewish com-
mitment to try harder morally to
build a better world; they instead
create a framework in which Is-
rael and Jews will not be able to
live up to perfection so they will
not be able to live at all. Yasir
Arafat sought to exploit the same
feelings when he declared that
Begin and Sharon were the evil
ones; Jews are incapable of such
actions as massacre. Arafat lied
twice-Begin and Sharon did not
commit the massacre and Jews
are capable of murder as all
people are. The difference bet-
ween Israel and Arafat is that out
of ethics and memory Jews have
restrained themselves and not
declared war primarily on women
and children.
For many friends of Israel, the
most trying moments came when
Begin refused an inquiry. During
those three or four days there was
deep moral confusion comparable
to Abraham's before the binding
of Isaac. We should have known
better. Israel has a record of con-
stant moral behavior and demo-
cratic process in the face of unre-
lenting attack and extreme
provocation. It took America,
one of the great countries of the
world, years to overcome the ob-
stacles to a Watergate inquiry. It
took Israel one week. Not a single
general was held accountable for
the My Lai massacre although
it was done bv an American bat-
talion. Before the inquiry has be-
gun, Israel has made clear that
superior officers will be held ac-
countable for sins of omission.
Prime Minister Begins and
General Ariel Sharon's initial
reactions were defensive. They
not only denied their own respon-
sibility, they argued that to set
up an inquiry would be to imply
that Jews were quilty of killing
when they were not guilty.
Menachem Begin put his finger
on the hypocrisy which sur-
rounded the outburst of criticism
of Israel when he said: "Goyim
kill goyim and thev come to hang
the Jews." But the overwhelming
consensus of the Jewish people in
Israel and worldwide was that
there had to be an inquiry be-
cause this is the only way to
avoid future mistakes. Only
those who control the use of
power by holding people res-
ponsible can hope to avoid or
minimize abuse of power. So the
reaction to the Beirut massacre
proves the opposite of what the
anti-Semites and the false
prophets claimed. It proves the
vital force of Jewish morality and
Israeli democracy. The ground-
swell reaction shows that a
chastened Jewish people, deeply
shaken by the sight of spilled
innocent blood, saw the moral
abyss that people can too easily
fall into while defending their
legitimate rights. The over-
whelming bulk of the Jewish peo-
ple want to be strong enough to
live without yielding the ages-old
covenantal commitment that
power will be judged.
Taking Responsibility for Power
So it boils down to our capacity
as leaders and as participants in
Jewish history to take responsi-
bility for taking power. American
Jews are not making military de-
cisions. But actions to raise
money and to support Israel
through the American political
system constitute a decision to
have power.
When people grumble, "Do
you have to give money?" my an-
swer is: For 2,000 years the
money was taken from Jews and
it fed our worst enemies. It is a
privilege to give money when it is
invested in our own creations,
even in our own mistakes. And it
provides an opportunity to show
how Jews use power. The test ol
Jewish ethics and Jewish religion
in this generation is whether they
can inspire a people to give and to
build a more humane, responsible
society. All the rest is talk; with-
out giving, it is cheap talk.
And while many Jews disagree
with current policies, they must
resist the temptation to uphold
the state of Israel through dis-
owning the Begin government.
As a matter of fact, to its great
credit, this government's domes-
tic policies have produced pro-
grams to break the c

THE WARM applause which
greeted the end of this tense and
uncomfortable lecture seemed to
signify not merely the presence of
several sympathetic Jewish
listeners but that the speaker had
scored an important point with
the audience as a whole.
Kimche prefaced his reminders
about some British moments in
the Middle East by deploring
"the cascade of venom" which
had been directed towards Israel
after the Sabra and Shatila
camps massacres, regardless of
Israel's own horror of them and
the judicial inquiry which she es-
tablished. He then went on:
"Let me recall to you some
comparatively recent incidents
which were received not only
without such feelings of outrage
(in Britain) but were not consid-
ered to be worthy (except in one
case) of even a cursory investiga-
tion while the press barely noted
THE FIRST example, he said,
"deals with the British army in
Iraq. In 1941, two British
columns advanced on Baghdad
from the south and from the
north. They entered Basra on
May 14 when Arab youths and
members of the Gurkha regime
embarked on a two-day rampage
of looting and sacking Jewish
shops and homes. Five days
later, Assyrian Christian Levies
attached to the British force did
likewise in Falluja.
"Meanwhile, the northern force
under General Clark had reached
the outskirts of Baghdad. The
pro-German regent fled, and an
armistice was concluded with the
Iraqi mayor of the city. The
regent returned on June 1, and
the British force remained en-
camped on the outskirts despite
warnings of troubles about to
"Geoffrey Warner, the most
recent historian of that cam-
paign, noted that instructions
from the Foreign Office had
halted the troops on the outskirts
while Iraqi troops and police
helped in the three-day massacre
which left some 500 Jewish men,
women and children dead, over a
thousand injured and some 1,300
Jewish shops and homes ran-
sacked and destroyed.
"THE KILLING was going on
within earshot of the British. We
have evidence that the Oriental
secretary at the Embassy begged
the Ambassador to intervene, but
he refused. Indeed, the full facts
were not reported by the British
Embassy to the Foreign Office
until seven weeks after the event.
There was no sense of outrage in
any non-Jewish quarter, and
there were no demands of an in-
quiry or for punishment of those
"The pattern was repeated in
Aden in December, 1947, when
some 70 Jews were slaughtered
and their homes and shops
looted, Kimche continued. "A
one-man inquiry appointed by
the Colonial Office evinced the
somewhat embarrassing evidence
that local Levies attached to the
British forces had directed their
fire almost exclusively on the
Jews who were under attack.
"Needless to say, no one sug-
gested that any responsibility
rested with any British official,
let alone the Labor government
which was the ultimate authority
that had sanctioned the use of the
Levies. The matter was hardly
reported, and there was no sign of
more than formalized distress
that Jews should have allowed
themselves to be killed."
said, a similar attack had taken
place two years previously, in
November, 1945, in Trinolitania
which was under British military
"For four days from Nov. 5
to 8 Arab mobs, often assisted
by local police and unhampered
by British troops, rampaged
through the streets of the Tripoli
ghetto and in many smaller
cities, killing, burning Jews alive
in the streets, looting and smash-
ing homes," Kimche related.
"One hundred and thirty Jews
were known to be killed, many
more died unrecorded; many
hundreds were injured and
The head of the British mili-
tary administration was in
London at the time, Kimche said.
"His deputy explained that he
had no instruction from British
military headquarters in Cairo for
the army to intervene. When they
did after three days of rioting, it
took only a few hours for a few
British trucks to halt them. But
after it was all over, there was no
inquiry, hardly any reporting, no
questions of responsibility. There
was no compensation for the
ruined community, and the pro-
mised small loans for shopkeep-
ers never materialized."
stated: "I am sure you don't
want me to belabor this point
further. Israel is doing something
about what happened in (the
Shatila and Sabra camps) in Bei-
rut which no other country in
similar circumstances and
they are legion has done ... I
need hardly remind you that the
massacre was committed by Leb-
anese and not by Israelis, and
that no Israeli soldiers took part
in the horrible episode, and that
as soon as we realized what was
happening we put a stop to it."

Draper Presses Israelis To
Find Lebanon Solution
U .S. special envoy Mor-
ris Draper continued his
talks with Israeli leaders
last week in an attempt to
reach agreement on the
framework of proposed ne-
gotiations for the with-
drawal of all foreign forces
from Lebanon and security
arrangements in south Le-
banon .
Draper met with Premier
Menachem Begin, Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon.
He had another session with
Shamir later. Afterwards he told
reporters that he thought "we are
making progress in overcoming
the obstacles to talks aimed at
bringing about the withdrawal of
all foreign forces from Lebanon.
That is the common objective of
the U .S., Lebanon and Israel."
BUT THERE were indications
that the Israeli and American
positions do not coincide, and
there has been unconcealed
disappointment in circles here
with Draper's stand on specific
demands being made by Israel.
The American envoy, who is
President Reagan's special
Ambassador for the negotiations
on Lebanon, has continued to
urge the Israelis not to make
matters difficult for President
Amin Gemayet of Lebanon. Some
Israeli sources have suggested
that Draper seems to be speaking
for Gemayel rather than for the
It has become evident in recent
weeks that the newly-elected
Lebanese President is trying to
distance himself from Israel in
order to improve his relations
with the other Arab countries
and with Lebanon's Moslem
The Israelis strongly oppose
the Lebanese position that nego-
tiations with Israel should be
conducted at the liaison officers
level comprising military com-
missions, with the U.S. acting as
mediator. Israel insists on direct
talks by a joint political-military
that the end of belligerency
between the two countries must
be the first topic on the agenda.
The Israelis intend to raise other
political issues of principle which
they insist must be discussed at a
senior political level, not between
military officers.
Those issues would include the
ways and means to ensure that
total withdrawal of all foreign
forces from Lebanon and security
arrangements to prevent them
from ever returning. Israel would
leave details of security arrange-
ments in south Lebanon to the
end of the negotiating process.
In Lebanon, meanwhile, op-
position appears to be growing to
Israel's continued presence in the
country. Prime Minister Shafiq
al-Wazzan accused the Israelis of
"paralyzing government func-
tions" in the areas of Lebanon its
troops occupy. He also threat-
ened to strip the citizenship of
Lebanese officials and civilians in
cases of "collaboration with
from Beirut, al-Wazzan said the
Israeli occupying force was
trying "to subvert the local
administration and impose
normalization by interfering in
public affairs." He warned that
"People who deal with Israel and
thus harm the country could lose
their nationality."
Israelis are also upset with
Gemayel who returned to Beirut
from Morocco where he discussed
the possibility of enlarging the
Multinational Force in Lebanon
to include Moroccan units. The
MNF is presently composed of
Italian and French troops and
1,200 U.S. marines.
Israeli sources promptly
rejected the idea of including
Moroccans because Morocco is
officially in a state of belligerency
with Israel. But they seemed
willing to consider the
deployment of Egyptian units as
part of the MNF.

pcly avowed by the IDF

consideration. Sharon, in

been to prevent residual Pales-
tine Liberation Organization and
leftist forces in west Beirut from

Begin was asked repeatedly
whether the proposed role of the
Phalangists in the IDF operation
had been discussed with him be-
tween Tuesday night, Sept. 14,
when the original decision to
seize "west Beirut key points had
been taken, and Thursday night,
Sept. 16, when the full cabinet
learned of the entire operation,
including the Phalangists' entry
into the camps, and endorsed it.
Repeatedly Begin insisted that
he had not been informed of the
plans for the Phalangists to enter
the camps. According to earlier
testimony by Sharon, those plans
were made early Wednesday,
Sept. 15. "Nothing was said to
me about the Phalangists.

doesn't say he told you."
Begins: "Well, if he didn't tell
me, then I didn't know."
THE PREMIER said Sharon
had been within his rights to omit
informing the Premier of the
plan involving the Phalangists
because "he could rely" on a
Cabinet decision, taken unani-
mously on June 15, resolving
that Israel would urge both the
official Lebanese army and the
Lebanese Forces (Phalangists) to
fight against the PLO in Beirut
and unite their own capital. The
Israeli Cabinet did not want IDF
soldiers to lose life and limb in
that battle.
Efrat pointed out, at length,
that the June 15 Cabinet deci-
sion's basic thrust had been that
the IDF would not enter west
Beirut; instead the Lebanese
Forces would be encouraged to do
Now, however, Efrat went on,
in the wake of Bashir's killing,
the situation had radically
altered. Israel had decided to
send its army into west Beirut
after all, and there were fears
which Begin himself conceded did
exist of a revenge-rampage by
the Phalangists. Was there not
therefore a "different context?"
Efrat asked.
NO, Begin replied. The context
was west Beirut. The same con-
Begin: "No. It did not come up sideration applied on Sept. 16 as

therefore I did not ask."
At that point, and repeatedly
during his testimony, Begin
insisted that "no one of us
imagined ... It did not cross our
minds, that the Phalangists
would commit a slaughter .
We regarded them as disciplined
fighting units."
Kahan, at that point, cited the
minutes of a conversation be-
tween Begin and U.S. special
envoy Morris Draper on Wednes-
day, Sept. 15, in which Begin
on June 15: To avoid loss of Is-
raeli lives in the fight against the

camps. Even in September, at the
time of the IDF and Phalangist
operation after the evacuation
of the bulk of PLO forces from

The three commission mem-
bers returned constantly to the
theme: had Begin known in ad-
vance that the Phalangists were
being sent into the camps and
why, once he did now, did he not
stop them?
At one point. Begin seemed al-
most ready to agree that he had
known in advance. Kahan and
Barak reminded him of a tele-

Begin noted, neither Levy nor
anyone else proposed that Levy's
remarks be the subject of a Cabi-
net debate or vote, or that the
Cabinet consider withdrawing
the Phalangist forces from the re-
fugee camps.
Questioned later by Kahan as
to whether Levy's words had
"generated particular attention
on your part," the Premier said
he had not really paid attention
as he had been "preoccupied
with the drafting of the Cabinet
communique at that moment."
TO BARAK, the Premier
stated firmly that neither the
Mossad nor the Shin Beth, the
two Israeli intelligence services
that are directly subordinate to
the Prime Minister, had ever
warned him of the dangers inher-
ent in using Phalangist forces
against the Palestinians.
He sidestepped Barak's ques-
tion as to whether he now
thought that they "should have
warned you." "I don't want to
pass judgement about such seri-
ous matters ..." Begin said. He
indicated that such matters are
usually brought to his attention
as the initiative of the intelli-
gence agenices rather than as a
response to his own initiatives.
He also carefully declined to
fault Sharon or anyone else for
not reporting or consulting with
him between Sept. 14 and Sept.
16 on the plan to send the Phal-
angists into the camps. He re-
peated that Sharon was within
his rights under the June 15 Cab-
inet decision.

next year.
Friej played down Hussein's
reported comment last month
that he would never negotiate
with the Begin government, not-
ing that the Jordanian ruler had
made no such statement in his in-
terview with the BBC in London
last Thursday.
The Jordanian monarch, in an
interview with the BBC, said that
PLO recognition of Israel "would
remove an obstacle in the way of
having all the doors open to us
and I'm not talking just about
Israel but the United States,
too." The U.S. has repeatedly
said it will not talk with the PLO
until that organization recognizes
Israel's right to exist and accepts
United Nations Security Council
Resolutions 242 and 338.
Freij, in referring to the BBC
interview, told The Jerusalem
Post that the Jordanian-PLO
rapprochement indicated that
things were "moving in the right
HE SAID that Hussein was
focussing on President Reagan's
Middle East peace proposals,
noting that the Jordanian
monarch is scheduled to visit
Washington later this month. He
confirmed reports that a
prominent West Banker, Bassam
Kanaan of Nablus, has been in
separate contacts with Labor
Party chairman Shimon Peres
and King Hussein.
This was reported by Israel
television last Thursday night.
Kanaan reportedly was told by
Hussein that while the Allon plan
was unacceptable, Jordan would
be prepared to negotiate security
arrangements with Israel along
the Jordan River.

The Allon plan, proposed years
ago by the late Laborite Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon, called for a
string of Israeli security settle-
ments along the river while the
heavily Arab-populated West
Bank hinterland would revert to
Arab control.
According to the TV report,
Hussein, despite his reservations,
urged Kanaan to continue his
contacts with the Laborities. Gad
Yaacobi a former Cabinet
minister in Labor-led govern-
ments, said Hussein's remarks
were positive but still fell short of
an expression of readiness by
Jordan and the West Bank and
Gaza Palestinians to negotiate
with Israel.
HE SAID a Labor government
would be prepared to negotiate
on the basis of two states
Israel and Jordan but not on
the basis of three Israel,
Jordan and a Palestinian state
between them. He said there was
no basis for negotiations between
Israel and the PLO even if the
latter renounced terrorism.
Speaking for the government,
Deputy Agriculture Minister,
Michael Dekel, contended that
Hussein and the PLO were still
plotting the destruction of Israel
in stages. Hussein was urging the
PLO to recognize Israel in its
1948 boundaries, not in defensi-
ble boundaries, Dekel claimed.

Gen. Amos Yaron, com-
mander of Israeli forces in
Beirut during the refugee
camps massacres, told the
commision of inquiry Mon-
day that Chief of Staff Gen.
Rafael Eitan permitted the
Phalangists to continue
their operations in the
camps a day after it was re-
ported that civilians were
being harmed and had con-
gratulated them for doing
"a good job."
Yaron, a paratroop officer,
testified at an open session of the
commission Sunday and then
continued his testimony in closed
At the open session of the
panel, Yaron said that "alarming
reports began to come in" by
Thursday night, Sept. 16, that
Christian Phalangists who enter-
ed the camps earlier in the day
were going beyond their mission
to round up suspected terrorists.
The report of civilian casualties
increased on Sept. 17 whereupon
Yaron telephoned his superior,
Gen. Amin Drori, commander of
the northern front. Yaron testi-
fied that on his recommendation,
Drori ordered a halt to the
Phalangists operation and sum-
moned Eitan to Beirut.
Eitan to Phalangist headquarters
where, according to Yaron, the
Israeli Chief of Staff told the
Phalangists that they had "done
a good job" and said their opera-
tion could continue until Satur-
day morning.
Yaron was the first witness to
appear before the commission ac-
companied by two lawyers whom
he described as his "advisors."
He said that he learned on Sept.
16, that the Phalangists would be
allowed to enter the Sabra and
Shatila refugee camps in west
Beirut and that his orders, from
the northern command, were to
"coordinate" their entry. Yaron
said that on the basis of his

orders he treated the Phalangists
as "a foreign force" with which
the Israeli forces should "coordi-
nate operationally."
Yaron explained that the pur-
pose of the coordination was to
make sure that the Phalangists
did not enter areas under control
of the Israeli Defense Force and
that they did not shoot at each
other. He said that during the
"coordination session" with the
Phalangists he warned them
specifically not to hurt civilians
because he knew "their patterns
of behavior" which were different
from those of the IDF.
"IN THE BACK of my mind I
remembered that it was just after
the murder of Bashir," Yaron
told the commission. He was re-

Shamir's Visit to Zaire Postponed
JERUSALEM (JTA) Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's visit to Zaire, scheduled for next week, has been
postponed at the hosts' request. Shamir had been
scheduled to go instead of Premier Menachem Begin, who
preferred not to leave Israel while his wife Aliza is
recovering from a bronchial illness.
ISRAELI OFFICIALS said the Shamir post-
ponement was technical and the visit would take place at
the end of the month.
Meanwhile, it was learned, Shamir's aides are putting
together a Latin American tour for him that will hopefully
include Argentina. The visit is likely at the end of the year
or the beginning of 1983.

"As long as the operation took
place in cooperation with us, I
told them, they should be warned
not to hurt the civilian popula-
tion and those who gave them-
selves up," Yaron said.
He said that at the first stage,
it was agreed that the Phalang-
ists should enter only the south-
ern part of the Shatila camp. In
addition to warning them against
mistreating civilians, Yaron said
he took other precautionary
measures to make sure the Phal-
