The story broke in the media
after a report on Frankel "s

by the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-

Frankel's report, but government
figures lashed out at the oppo-
sition for lack of patriotism.

Anatoly's wife, Avital, has
been shuttling between New

arrange interventions with high
officials and appearing also at
public meetings arranged by the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry, the Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry, the
Los Angeles CRC, and leading
academics and business leaders.
Howard Sinsley, chairman of
the Tampa Jewish Federation
Community Relations Committee
has requested that letters or post

Ronald Reagan; The White
House; 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.;
Washington, D.C. 20500 and The
Honorable George Shultz; Secre-
tary of State; Department of
State; Washington, D.C. 20520.
The text of the communication
is as follows:
Dear President Reagan:
We know you are concerned
with the fate of the imprisoned
Anatoly Sharansky who suffers
because he wants to be reunited
with his wife in Israel.
We urge you to intercede on his
behalf at this time with the So-
viet government.

migration is high-lighted by the

the dramatic decreases in Jews
being allowed to leave the Soviet
Union in the last few years.
reduced to begging America to
break Mr. Begin's political
power. And it now advocates
means that would have been
unthinkable even a few weeks
ago. The startling plea by many
leading Israelis (is) that the
United States reduce its econo-
mic aid to their nation."
Frankel stated that Begin's
opponents "acknowledge poli-
tical weakness, which is mainly
due to Mr. Begin's success in
rallying the large, resentful com-
munity of Middle Eastern Jews
against the affluent or socialistic
elites of European origin." The
opposition, therefore, according
to Frankel, wants the U.S. to
help them topple the Begin
And to that end, leading oppo-
sition figures now risk political
oblivion by counselling sharp
cuts in America's non-military
aid of $800 million a year," Fran-
kel wrote. He concluded by
noting: "American diplomats in
Israel resist this anguished

prominent Israelis should be

spondent wrote that Frankel "in-
dicated strongly that they were
top leaders not secondary
iparty functionaries."
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, addressing a national
convention of the ultra-rightist
Tehiya Party in Jerusalem, said:
"Some of our critics at home even
want to invoke overseas pres-
sures to be brought to bear on the
government but never fear.
They will not succeed. The
government of Israel will never
surrender to pressure."
Shamir called on Tehiya to
give its "verve, enthusiasm and
zeal" to supporting "the govern-
ment of Israel our govern-
ment ... it is an Eretz Israel
government." He said the
government was under attack at
home and abroad for "strength-
ening Jewish settlements in each
and every part of Eretz Israel."
spokesman accused Shamir of
inciting against the opposition.
Shimon Perez
Labor Party Chairman Shimon
Peres asserted that no Laborite
had made the comment to Frank-
el. Secretary-General Haim
Barlev assured a radio inter-
viewer that "no one in our party
would have said anything so
stupid or so vicious." Barlev said
he himself had not met with
Frankel. He raised the possibility
that Frankel's report might be "a
provocation" but refused to
specify who might have been res-
ponsible for such a provocation.
But Justice Minister Moshe
Nissim (Likud-Liberal) told
reporters that Frankel was
"credible" and had plainly
written what he did because he
had been satisfied it reflected "a
trend" within Labor.
Nissim noted that Frankel had
told the Post that he "would not
have written this article unless I
was convinced that the view was
widespread and that it was
deeply felt... It was not just
one crackpot. I was startled to
find how widespread the view
was." Plainly, Nissim said,
Frankel had met with several
leading Laborites and the view he
reported was a trend in their
THIS WAS "an unpreceden-
ted scandal," the Justice Min-

Alice Israel certainly was thrilled with a surprise 75th
birthday party given by her three daughters. Tampans Sharyn
Brookins and Janice Cantos, and from Orlando, Renee Roberta.
The festivities were held at the Jewish Towers on Nov. 6. It was
attended by her family, friends, and residents of the Jewish
Towers. The party theme was "This is Your Life, Alice," about
which a short slide presentation was made. In addition, the
Towerette8 entertained and honored Alice with several special
songs. Loads of love and congratulations on this momentous
occasion, Alice.
We were thrilled to hear from our new friends, Eric and
Judy Ludin. You met them in this column just a few months ago
when they were brand new Tampans. Things have really been
falling into place for the Ludins in the last couple of months.
Eric is now an Assistant State Attorney in Pinellas County, and
loves his work. Judy has 16 private clarinet students, which
keeps her busy about two days a week, but hopes to soon find
some more clarinet or recorder students. She says that she loves
teaching music on the one to one basis. We are mighty glad that
things are working out for y'all keep us posted!
Pauline Silvia, business manager of the Jewish Community
Center for the past four years is leaving Tampa for a more

native, as her accent will attest, is a graduate of Girl's Latin
School in Boston and has lived in Tampa since 1976 when she
moved from Quincy, Mass. Her parents Rose and Cy Resell, who
reside at the Jewish Towers, will remain in Tampa so we are sure
to be seeing Pauline on frequent visits. We wish you much
happiness in your new city, Pauline.

this wonderful occurrence. Congratulations to all of you we
are mighty proud to have you for our friends and fellow citizens.

Following a delicious (and spicy) Mexican dinner. Lou
Zipkin, the president of Brotherhood of Congregation Schaarai
Zedek reports that the men enjoyed a fascinating talk by Dan
McDuffie, at their November Meeting. A former Peace Corp-
sman in Costa Rica and Guatemala, he is an agricultural expert
and taught farmers the use of hybrid vegetables and fertilizers.
He also helped build several schools in his role as community
liaison. After the Peace Corps, Dan spent two years as a free-
lance photographer. His work has taken him to the Nicaraguan
refugee camps of Costa Rica as well as to the Cuban refugees of
Miami. This past June and July, Mr. McDuffie and three
Tribune reporters traveled to Costa Rica, Honduras, and El
Salvador to produce the 28-page pullout found in the-Aug. 22
Sunday Tribune. Dan accompanied his talk with some of his
vivid and magnificent photography.
Barbara Rich man. the director of the Jewish Community
Center Pre-School, informs us that they have initiated
beautiful new tradition at the school. With Chanukah drawing
near, the school decided that it would be nice to give the grand-
parents of the pre-schoolers an opportunity and chance to honor
their grandchild with a donation to the pre-school. Their gift
would be used towards the purchase of special equipment for
their individual grandchild's room. Each child will say a per-
sonal "thank you" to their grandparent, with a thank you
picture. So if you have a child at the JCC Pre-School, won't you
provide the school with the names and addresses of your child's
grandparents so that they can be a part of this tradition, if they
so desire? Contact Barbara Richman for more information.
The National Council of Jewish Women held their annual
"Bundle Party" Nov. 10. This yearly affair, sponsored by the

Shop in the future. The Thrift Shop (also known as the Berdorfs
of Franklin Street!) is one of NCJW's main fundraisers that aids
in helping them to maintain their Community Service Projects
It also fulfills a need in the community by offering clean, salable
merchandise at affordable prices.

needed a facelift, they decided to
do something about it!

Roth, chairman of the JCC house
committee, an energetic group of
volunteers accomplished a tre-
mendous amount of work over a
few weekend work days.
Improvements consisted of
moving and rebuilding the sand-
box, mulching a large area
around the equipment, and re-
placing and recovering the wood-
en platforms on a major piece of
equipment. The committee is
especially grateful to the JCC
maintenance staff Don Fisher
and Frank Morris for their help.

The issue at three West Bank universities where
Israel asked for a faculty "loyalty oath" can not be |
compared to "McCarthyism." as Secretary of State ?j
George Shultz declared last week. The issue is not
academic freedom, but aiding and abetting terrorist :j
acts against a democratic ally.
In fact, comments Morris J. Amitay, whose politi |:j:
cal columns appear in The Jewish Floridian, the
teachers were not asked to sign "loyalty oaths" at
all. Says Amitay, all they were asked to do was
"pledge not to aid an organization dedicated to the
violent overthrow of Israel and actually at-
tempting to do so."
We agree. And Amitay comes specially-equipped
to know, not only as a columnist and Washington
observer these days, but also as a consequence of his
previous long tenure with the America Israel
Political Action Coi imittee there.
Amitay conjectures that the Shultz, press confer-
ence remarks are a bellwether of new Administration
policies geared toward confrontation with Israel.
Indeed, the distinct possibility is that Shultz's ob-
servations during his conference were a last-minute
substitute for the inauguration of these policies
intended to be made by President Reagan during his
talks with Prime Minister Begin talks cancelled
when the Prime Minister suddenly flew back to Israel
when his wife, Aliza, died.
What seems to be occurring these days, is a
sudden toughening of American foreign policy
toward Israel, but we agree with Amitay that "Israel
is unlikely to cave in. the Arabs are unlikely to come
to the negotiating table, and the U.S. interest in a
genuine peace is unlikely to be advanced."
All except, of course, for the media, whose new
anti-Israel mode will give them something to raise a
fuss about. Intransigence, and that sort of thing. In
this, the Administration will serve at least some
Friday, November 26.

I West Germany Calling
To say that Israeli Premier Menachem Begin and
West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt had a
tailing out may be an understatement. After a series
of bitter personal exchanges last year, diplomatic
relations between the two countries fell to a new low
and reconciliation seemed far off in the distance.
Schmidt's position in the Middle East dispute,
supporting the nearly dead European Economic
Community Venice Declaration of 1980 calling for
the "association" of the PLO in peace negotiations,
did not sit well in official Israeli leadership circles.
But now with the fall of the long ruling Schmidt
coalition government and the rise of Helmut Kohl,
leader of the Christian Democratic Union, initial
indications are signaling toward a time of better
relations between the two governments.
Since coming to power last September, Kohl has
maintained a low keyed approach toward the Middle
East. But recently, meeting with a group of Jewish
leaders in New York at the tail end of a visit to the
United States, Kohl enunciated some policy direction
toward Israel, indicating a more sympathetic view
toward the Jewish State.
Kohl said he supports the Camp David process,
which he indicated to the Reagan Administration in
his meetings earlier. Overall, Kohl's position seems
congruous with many in the American Jewish
community who realize that strong diplomatic
relations between West Germany and Israel can only
enhance the prospect for a just and lasting peace in
the Middle East.

When Will the Attacks in the U.S. Begml
HOW LONG will it be before
American Jewish citizens and in-
stitutions are the objects of
regular terrorist attack? The
question is not whether but
There is little reason to assume
that these attacks will not occur
sometime soon. They have been
happening everywhere else, and
with special frequency in Europe.
Why not here?
For the American Jewish com-
munity to avoid the issue is to ig-
nore the facts. Sixteen European
Jewish communities held a closed
session of the World Jewish Con-
gress European Branch at the be-
ginning of November to deal with
the lethal quality of the terrorism
directed against them.
A MAJOR report at the ses-
sion was delivered by Frank
Perez, director of the State De-
partments Office for Combatting
Terrorism. In his intelligence
evaluation, Perez told the Euro-
peans that terrorist attacks
against Jews and Israelis "have
been more lethal than other ter-
Perez said that "over three-
quarters of the attacks were
carried out by Palestinians."
Perhaps the most stunning sta-
tistic in the OCT report is that
from January, 1981 until Sep-
tember, 1982 there were 104
attacks by terrorists against Is-
raeli and Jewish targets.
Of this number, which excludes
attacks in Israel proper or on the
West Hank, more than 20 percent
were staged in France and Italy.
Altogether. 26 countries have

raeh citizens or interests abra
the fact is that Jews from
other countries have been victi
ized by Palestinian terrorism

from supporting Israeli causes.
The OCT report indicates that

wounded and 25 killed, and PereJ
told the Europeans that aWl

issued a report of its own on this

its Kuropean office in Paris two
years ago, and the report covers
the period from Autumn, 1980 to |
the same period in 1982.
The ADL's statistics are con-
fined to Europe only and cite 73 '
bombings and shootings. Since
the attacks are perceived as part
of the Israel-Arab conflict, police
investigations tend to be limited
in scope. In fact, in only one case
has there been an arrest the

Bleak Future for Marriage-Prone
Seen to Need Better Than Singles Bars

It all began when mem
bers of the Jewish Educa-
tion Council of Seattle, at a
meeting a little over two
years ago, projected a bleak
future of fewer and fewer
Jewish children to educate
unless the growing rate of
mixed marriages among
Seattle's young Jews could
be slowed down.
They decided that one way to
reach that objective was to make
it possible for more marriageable
Jewish young men and women to
meet and get acquainted under
auspices more dignified than sin-
gles bars. They noted that in
current circumstances of Jewish
mobility and Jewish community
fragmentation, many Jewish sin-
gles are neither members of a
synagogue nor involved in Jew-
ish community activities.
So they set about developing a
Jewish Singles Computer Dating
Service. Its JEC sponsors assert
that the JSS can be credited with
at least five known marriages,
according to the Jewish Trans-
cript of Seattle.
THEY REPORTED that since
the JSS began functioning, near-
ly 1,000 Jewish singles from
Portland. Ore. to Vancouver,
British Colombia have joined the
computer service. The JEC has
received many glowing reports ol
male-female friendships made
through the dating service.
Kay Pomerantz, JEC director,
said most Jews enrolling in the
JSS are 24 years old and older,
with many in their late 20s and
early 30s. She said JSS partici-
pants currently are evenly
divided between men and women.
She said many singles are par-
ticipating from smaller towns,
where the problem of finding
suitable Jewish dates is most
She also reported that one
couple who met and married
through the JSS were both from
Seattle. The others have all been
inter-city linkages. The first mar-
riage evolving from the JSS serv-
ice was a Portland-Tacoma link-
ing. A couple married this sum-
mer involves a second marriage
for the woman, who has children
from her first marriage. The new
husband is from another city and
his bride said that without the
help of the JSS, she almost cer-
tainly would never have met him.
MS. POMERANTZ said there
are probably other marriages in
which the JSS was a factor that
the JEC sponsors have no in-
formation about.
Sandy Dorr is a volunteer who
took over the job of JSS director
last November. She said that
since then, the JSS has almost
doubled its list of names by in-
creased publicity and member-
ship expansion efforts.
Visit Israel
Minister Pierre Mauroy will visit
Israel next year and attend the
twinning ceremonies between the
French city of Lille and Israel's
Safed. Mauroy told Safed Mayor
Josef Nahmias, with whom he
met earlier this week, that he will
visit Israel as soon as possible
after the countrywide forthcom-
ing municipal elections next
March. Mauroy is Mayor of Lille.
Nahmias said the Prime Minis-
ter also told him that the Franco-
Israel dialogue will soon resume
and that the Franco-Israel
cultural commission, whose sche-
duled meeting last June was
postponed by the French govern-
ment because of the war in
!.. hanon will soon be reconvened.
Ms. Dorr said that the stigma
once attached to the idea of dat
ing by computer does not apply
to the JSS service. She said more
Jews with a wider range of in-
terests and more age groups are
starting to use the service. She
reported a recent trip to Van-
couver where she met with locai
rabbis to discuss the JSS. She re-
ported that Vancouver Jewish
men want to meet Seattle Jewish
Ms. Dorr said the JSS has be-
come an accepted way for Jewish
singles to meet singles of the op-
posite sex, particularly for those
who would not ordinarily attend
events for singles or general Jew-
ish community programs. She re-
ported she had contacted all of
the local synagogue offices and
the Jewish Community Center
and that all of the offices are
directing inquiries from Jewish
single newcomers to the JSS. She
said the JSS sends application.
forms to the newcomers.
California, who has lived in Seat-
tle for eight years, has never
made any special effort to meet
eligible Jewish women, has not
been affiliated with a synagogue
and has not attended Jewish
functions, Ms. Door reported.
Now he is thinking seriously
about getting married and has
found the computer service an ef-
fective way to meet Jewish
women. He said that in only
about two months, he has re-
ceived the names of about ten
Jewish single women.
According to the Transcript,
the JEC has a private fund made
up of contributions from several
Jewish "angels," who subsidize
the dating service and no public
funds are used. Ms. Dorr stressed
that the service is absolutely con-
fidential and participants see
only the names of other persons
with whom names are exchanged.
Names are fed into the com-
puter in Los Angeles and the
service provides up to five names
and telephone numbers each
time, and three computer runs, at
two-months intervals, for any
Jewish single, 18 years and older,
for a $20 fee.
A newsletter is sent out with
each computer run, giving par-
ticipants undated information
and informal news about the
service. Ms. Dorr said the JSS
has a telephone system which
takes messages around the clock.

New Rail Road Inaugurated
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's newest railway line was
officially inaugurated Wednesday when the first train
travelled from Tel Aviv to Kiryat Gat, over a new track
and parts of a rebuilt track along an old right-of-way.
THE NEW LINK involving 12 miles of completely new
embankment and track from Ashkelon to Kiryat Gat plus
restoration of the Ashkelon -A shdod line, part of the old
Palestine-Egypt railroad, is intended to speed and serve
potash and phosphate exports from the Dead Sea to Ash-

Saudi Investors are
Quite Conservative
The explosive increase in
the price of oil following the
oil embargo of 1973-1974
and the Iran-Iraq war of
1979 led to fears that a tor-
rent of petrodollars to the
United States would enable
the oil-rich Arab states to
buy up all of America.
These fears have proved
thus far, at least to be exag-
gerated. It was true that the
governments of Saudi Arabia,
Kuwait and the United Arab
Emirates were amassing sur-
pluses in the tens of billions of
dollars, but their investment
policies have proved to be most
conservative. Saudi Arabia has
not been interested in buying
American land or banks or cor-
porate stocks or bonds.
There are, of course, flam-
boyant private Arab investors
like Adnan Khashoggi who seem
intent on buying banks or hotels
or shopping centers, but their re-
sources are tiny compared with
Arab governments. Saudi Arabia
instead keeps billions on deposit
in American banks, owns huge
quantities of U.S. Treasury
securities, or lends huge sums to
blue chip corporations like
KUWAIT, more adventurous
than Saudi Arabia, until recently
has instructed its American
agents not to buy more than five
percent of the stock of any one
corporation because SEC rules
require public disclosure of such
holdings. But Kuwait, unlike
Saudi Arabia, apparently did not
seek to enhance its image or in-
fluence in the U.S. It was ap-
parently interested only j,
profitable and safe investment!
The purchase by Kuwait of Sanu

of policy and signaled the startof I

tional oil company.
Saudi Arabia, however, hu
political goals in the U.S. and
seeks to use its billions of dollars
to help achieve them. Its influ-
ence derives from five different
Its huge oil fields (and still
larger oil reserves) are the main
source of supply for our NATO
allies and Japan. Although Saudi
oil now constitutes only 3.7 per-
cent of the oil consumed in the
U.S., its wealth has won influen-
tial supporters. Any country
which can call Exxon, Mobil,
Texaco and Standard Oil of Cali-
fornia its great and good friends
has powerful allies.
The $8 billion of U.S. goods
that Saudi Arabia is now pur-
chasing each year builds a power-
ful cadre of American corpora-
tions dependent on Saudi good-
will. Even the oil glut has failed
to slacken the Saudi thirst for
American goods and services.
The huge construction con-
tracts awarded each year to
American giants like Bechtd,'
Fluor and others create still
another bodv of American cor
porate supporters. The fact that
American firms must compete for
these contracts with construction
companies all over the world only
makes them more vulnerable to
Arab governments* pressure. The
drying up of construction in the
U.S. serves to make the Saudi
contracts even more attractive;

Jewish legal artillery, including

FOR THE next several weeks,
Thompson did what will be
known as the definitive research

application to you with the same
motivation that impelled the
Georgia Senate to adopt Senate
resolution 423 in its 1982 session:
to finally right an historic injus-
tice by exonerating Leo Frank,
thereby demonstrating that our
legal system can indeed be called
upon to find the ultimate truth
and proclaim it. This case
presents a rare opportunity for us
to obliterate a terrible stain

Georgia Judicial system because
of the injustice done to Leo

But will the Parole Board

best it's no better than an even

from Gen. (res.) Yona Ephrat, the

Cabinet decided on June 15 that
the Israel army should not enter

But according to Zipori, that
could not and should not be in-
terpreted as a mandate for send-
ing in the Phalangists, as Sharon
later did. Zipori elaborated on the
June 15 Cabinet meeting when
the commission went into closed
session. However, he testified at
the open hearing that news of the
Phalangists' entry into the refu-

Hussein Presents Peace Plan
To Mitterrand in Paris
PARIS (JTA) King Hussein of Jordan has
presented the Arab peace plan to President Francois
Mitterrand and later said the French and Arab positions
have many points in common. Hussein, who led a seven-
member Arab delegation, including a PLO representative,
later said "France has examined our plan in a positive and
constructive way."
THE ARAB plan, drawn up at the recent Fez
summit conference, calls for a mutual recognition by
Israel and the PLO and for the Palestinian organization's
participation in future peace talks.
Hussein, who is due to lead the delegation to Moscow
and Peking next, said that the Arab states will continue
to press their case while exploring the possibilities offered
by the American peace plan as outlined by President
Reagan in September.
The Arab delegation consisted of the Foreign
Ministers of Syria, Morocco, Algeria, and Saudia Arabia
as well as the PLO's Farouk Kaddumi and Arab League
Secretary General Chedli Klibi.

News in Brief
Draper Begged Israel to 'Stop Massacre'
By JTA Report
dan. the representative in Beirut
of Israel's Foreign Ministry, in
testimony before the board of in-
quiry into the Sabra and Shatila
massacre, reported Sunday that
special U.S. envoy Morris Draper
telephoned him the morning of
Saturday, Sept. 18, to insist that
Israel "stop the massacres" by
Lebanese Christian forces.
In a report from the Washing-
ton Post Service, Draper is
quoted as having accused Israel
in stern language of respon-
sibility for the "terrible" and
"obscene" massacres.
Kashdan told the committee of
inquiry that Draper had called
him to warn Israel against allow-
ing the Christian militia into the
camps. The Kashdan testimony
was believed to have made public
the first official U.S. reaction to
the events at Sabra and Shatila.
According to the Washington
Post, Draper's call preceded by
only hours the statement by
President Reagan in which he ex-
pressed his "outrage and revul-
sion" to the massacre.

Conservative Jewry

ligion and education in Israel is
aimed at strengthening pluralism
in that country and guaranteeing

the airline"s shareholders decided
at a special meeting to continue

98 percent owned by the govern-

nearly two months.
The meeting was called to vote
on whether to put the company
into voluntary liquidation, with
possible sale to private interests,
or to reorganize it on a reduced
scale under severe austerity
terms proposed by management.
Those terms would invest
management with sole authority
for running the airline with vir-

The week-long suspension of
discussions has given both
management and labor time to
amend or accept the terms. The
tension between labor and

Defense Ministry Shuns
West Bank Guidelines
Ministry has dissociated itself
from guidelines recently issued
by the West Bank civil adminis-
tration instructing regional
governors to undermine the po-
litical influence of pro-Jordan
Arab leaders in the territory. The
document raised angry protests
in the Knesset from coalition as
well as opposition MKs.
A statement released by the
office of the Coordinator of
Activities in Judaea and
Samaria, a Defense Ministry
bureau, said the guidelines had
no validity. They were issued by
Col. Yigal Karmon. acting head
of the civil administration. But
according to the Coordinator's
office, neither it nor the Defense
Ministry as such had any part in
drafting the orders or knowledge
of the discussions which led to
Karmon's initiative was widely
interpreted as a measure to coun-
ter a perceived rapprochement
between Jordan and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
SPD Legislation Against
Neo-Nazi Propaganda
BONN The Social Demo-
cratic Party (SPDI, now in the
opposition, has reintroduced
legislation aimed against neo-
Nazi propaganda which was re-
jected a month ago when the
SPD headed West Germany's
governing coalition government.
The draft bill which would
close loopholes in existing anti-
Nazi laws, was killed in the
Bundesrat, the upper house of
parliment, controlled by the
Christian Democratic Union. The
CDU is now the governing party.
The proposed legislation would
give state prosecutors the power
to try persons who publicly deny
that Jews were persecuted by the
Third Reich or that the Holo-
caust occurred. It would impose
tighter restrictions on the import
and distribution of Nazi propa-
ganda material produced abroad
and limit the sale of reproduc-
tions of material that existed in
Nazi Germany.

CITRIN, whose address dealt
with "insuring the commitment
of the next generation," em-
phasized that to assure that
commitment, it is necessary to
create a joint agenda "for the
people of Israel, the Jewish
people, with the nation of Israel."
Furthermore, he said, the basic
clement in that agenda "is to do
what we can to help insure peace
for that beleaguered land."
Hut. Citrin pointed out, there
is another side to this joint
agenda. "As American Jews we
must work with our Israeli broth-
ers and sisters to help them
understand us and we them." he
said. "As we salute the saga of
their accomplishments
unequalled in modern times as
we seek to continually under-
stand and share their fears and
concerns, so must we help them
understand us our love of
country, home and birthplace to
inosi of us."
He added, however, "This does
not in one iota lessen the cen-
trality of Israel in our spiritual
and cultural lives. This does not
lessen the resolve and energy
that we hold ready to pour out in
full*measure for the security and
fulfillment of every single one of
our Israeli brothers and sisters."
joint agenda, Citrin said, "are our
deep concerns about anti-
Semitism and relationships here
in North America and world-
wide. We have recently lived
through and continue to live
through, a period of violence and
shocks that have caused us to
take a new sobering look at the
ugly turn that world events have
taken the very real effort to
delegitimize the State of Israel,
to equate racism with Zionism,
terrorist acts in France and Italy
which seek to put the Jewish
communities of the world at peril
of their very acceptance and
While Jews around the world
find themselves in a generally
perilous situation, "the prophecy
of Abraham has come to full
fruition here in North America,
for the people of Israel," Citrin
pointed out. "At no time or
place in their history have Jews
as a people a group been so
free, affluent, accepted, in-
fluential and satisfied as now in
North America."
Their status and impact in
North America is even greater
than it is in Europe, Citrin said,

mark their defiance of anti-ter-
rorist investigations ..."
Furthermore, "Each (att-
ack) has lasted between two
and four minutes and has come
toward the end of religious serv-
ices on the Sabbath or Jewish
festivals ..."
For the American Jewish com-
munity to wait for a Pearl Harbor
of terrorism on its own shores is
folly in the extreme. The threat
won't go away because it is
ignored. "It can't happen here"
was said in another context at
another time, but it did. It can
happen here again.
THE BURDEN on us all is
doubly heavy. At a time when
major church institutions are
finally coming officially to regret
their silence during the genocide
plot of Hitler against the Jews,
the silence throughout the world
in the face of this new terrorism is
equally deafening. And. since no
other segment of the American
community is similarly threat-
ened, we can expect neither un-
derstanding nor support in our
own dalayed agony here.
In fact, the fictionalized
reporting of the war in Lebanon
has turned the nation's sympath
ies away from Israel and there-
fore away from its Jewish sup-
porters. The State Department's
OCT report on the special peril
that Palestinian terrorism holds
for Jews internationally does not
dull its sympathies for an Arab
It may well be because of these
sympathies, all the more pro-
nounced since the advent of
George Shultz to the State
Department, that attacks against
American Jews and their institu-
tions have not occurred up until
now. The new Reagan Admin-
istration Arab tilt holds the line.
But should Israel decline to be
intimidated by it and not change,
say, its West Bank policies or its
attitude toward a Palestinian
state, then we can look for
trouble ahead on the basis that
the Arab revolutionaries have
given up on America as a source
of workable pressure on Israel.
And then, it will be more
apparent than ever that the
burden can not be shifted from
our anxious shoulders where it
rests unallied. We must face it
squarely alone.

For years now, Lebanon has
been torn by civil war, bickering
internal factions, foreign troops,
and the PLO. It seems we seldom
see good news there without a
tragedy following at its heels.
Recently, though, the situation
has quieted down a bit. Israel has
pulled its troops out of Beirut, to
be replaced by Lebanese civilian
and military authorities. In the
meantime, peacekeeping forces
from Italy, France, and the
United States have had a
stabilising effect.
Things appear to be looking up
again, as they were before the
brutal murder of Lebanon's
President-elect Bashir Gemayel.
Life there is as close to normal as
can be> expected under the cir-
cumstances. Israel's northern

threat of a PLO terrorist and

In hi* favor, the President did
recommit himself, in words at

other things, he acknowledged
that the pre-1967 borders may

Old Fox Andropov Expected to Continue Brezhnev's Policies
I West European experts be-
lieve the new Soviet leader-
ship will continue the late
Leonid Brezhnev's cautious
policy in the Middle East
but will crack down harder
on dissidents at home, es-
pecially Jews seeking the
| right to emigrate.
Yuri Andropov, the former
head of the KGB who succeeded
'Brezhnev as First Secretary of
the Soviet Communist Party, and
Konstantin Chernenko, the Polit-
buro member who nominated him
for that office, are both known to
lack confidence in the ability of
the Arab countries to unite and
act together. It is their conviction
that the main external danger to
the Soviet Union lies in the West.
I perts say, the new leadership will
I continue Brezhnev's policy in the
Middle East of carefully avoiding
any major confrontation either
with Israel or the U.S. The Soviet
Union will continue to supply
j Syria and other Soviet client
states in the area with arms. But
the flow will not be increased nor
will it be upgraded equalitatively.
According to one French intel-
ligence source, "It now seems
[even more unlikely than before
Ithat Syria will obtain the top
[grade combat planes and missiles
[which it had been demanding
I Moscow."
LEONID BREZHNEV: the old cautious policies
Former KGB Chief Said to Plan
Harder Crackdown on Dissidents
Even before Brezhnev's death
last week at the age of 75, Syrian
and Egyptian diplomats and
army officers complained of
"tepid support" of the Arab
cause in the Kremlin. Andropov
and Chernenko were often named
in that connection. In general,
the successors to Brezhnev are
elderly men and loathe to under-
take "an adventurous course."
They are expected to try to calm
the belicose instincts of their
Syrian and Libyan clients.
THE EXPERTS believe that
for the time being, Moscow will
try to achieve a status quo in the
Middle East to preserve its in-
terests and influence in the region
without expanding them. Some
Western diplomats believe that
Brezhnev's death has given the
U.S. and Israel a chance to at-
tempt to find a global solution to
the Middle East conflict without
Russian interference. But given
the unpredictability of Soviet
politics, the "period of grace"
may not last longer than a year.
The prompt succession of An-
dropov in fact surprised many
Kremlin-watchers who had ex-
pected a prolonged war of succes-
sion between Brezhnev's heirs for
the top leadership post. Some
predicted that a nominal suc-
cessor would be appointed until
the power struggle was resolved.
But Andropov appears to be a
strong man. At 68, he is known to
be backed by the military estab-
lishment, the secret service and
the police.
From 1967-82 he headed the
Soviet Security Committee which
is responsible for the KGB and
the police. Recently, he bested
Chernenko, 71, for the No. 2 spot
in the Soviet establishment, the
post of Central Committee Secre-
tary left vacant by the death of
Andrei Suslov earlier this year.
ANDROPOV IS known to
lave been among those Politburo
members who frequently com-
plained of the relatively
"moderate" course Brezhnev
tried to steer on human rights.
He believed those "lenient" poli-
cies allowed the dissident move-
ment to fourish. Experts believe
that given a free hand, he will
ruthlessly suppress any internal
challenge to the Soviet system.
His top priority is said to be a
quiet, stable social and political
climate within the USSR. Ac-
cordingly, dissidents are ex-
pected to suffer even more than
in the past, particularly if they
are perceived to be connected to
any foreign interests, such as

Aliza Was Menachem's Friend,
Partner of Near- 50 Years

: Aliza Begin, wife of Pre-
mier Manachem Begin,
died at the
Hebrew University-Hadas-

She was 62. The cause of
death was given as heart
failure. Begin interrupted
his visit to the United

Funeral services were held

and were private. The Begin

Mrs. Begin was hospitalized on
Oct- 4 for breathing difficulties

Aliza Begin was born on April
2. 1920 in Drohobycz. a small
town in Poland where her father,
a Zvi Arnold- was an attorney
nd a leader in the Zionist Revi-
sionist movement. She was one of
twin daughters. Her sister was to
perish in the Holocaust.
SHE MET her future husband,
Menachem, when she was 17. Her
father invited the then recent law
graduate of Warsaw University
to their home for dinner. Begin
was at the time a leader of Betar,
the Revisionist youth movement.
The young couple corresponded
and were married two years later,
on May 29, 1939. They took their
vows both dressed in Betar uni-
World War II broke out on
Sept. 1 when German armies in-
vaded Poland. The Begins joined
a stream of Jewish refugees
trying to reach the Rumanian
border but got no further than
Vilna. When the Russian army
occupied that part of Poland,
Aliza left for Palestine alone. Be-
gin, who had organized Revision-
ist party headquarters in Vilna,
was arrested and sent to forced
labor camps. He was released a
year later and joined his wife in
His activities in Palestine soon
made him a wanted man by the
British Mandate authorities.
Aliza and her husband lived un-
derground for five years, moving
from hide-out to hide-out under a
variety of aliases. During those
difficult years their children were
born Kenyamin Zeev, Hasya
and Leah. They finally settled in
a modest ground floor flat in Tel
Aviv which was their home until
May, 1977 when Kegin was
elected Premier. They moved to
the Prime Ministers residence in
the Rehavia section of Jerusalem.
MRS. BEGIN remained out of
the public eye during the 30 years
that her husband was leader of
the opposition in Israel's parlia-
ment. He was Prime Minister for
two years before she granted her
first press interview. She never
expressed opinions on public
issues. She was however active in
service for handicapped persons,
particularly wounded soldiers.
Mrs. Begin had suffered from
asthma since childhood. Her con-
dition deteriorated recently,
requiring hospitalization. She
will be buried near the graves of

gin's Irgun and the Stern Group
who committed suicide shortly
before they were to be executed

George Burns Plans to Make it to 100 Yearsand More
HOLLYWOOD George Burns, now past age 86, will
star in the Warner Bros, remake of the 1966 Alec Guin-
ness movie, "The Lady Killers." He will also appear this
fall on CBS and NBC in a two-hour contemporary drama,
"Two of a Kind" and in "George Burns and Other Sex
Symbols," a onehour special for NBC, with Linda Evans
and Bernadette Peters at his side.
The eternally young man plans to continue his concerts
and personal appearances with engagements throughout
October and November in Florida, San Francisco and
Atlantic City. The tour follows the release of his latest
album, "Young at Heart," featuring 10 songs.
BURNS, who was born Nathan Bimbaum, in New York
City, teamed up with Gracie Allen in the 1920's, made his
debut in motion pictures in 1932 in "The Big Broadcast,"
actually portraying himself in a guest starring role as he
did later in a number of none-toq-profound screen
comedies. While an established star in vaudeville, radio
and on television, he only came into his own in the cinema
after his old friend and colleague, Jack Benny, died and,
on the spur of a moment, he took over his role in the
filmization of Neil Simon's'The Sunshine Boys."
This was in 1975. Burns was hailed for his brilliant
characterization. During the past seven years he has
portrayed key roles in "Oh, God!," "Oh, God, Book II,"
"Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Just
You and Me, Kid," and in "Going in Style."
George will be presented with the Man of the Year
Award, for which he was chosen by editors and publishers
of U.S. magazines.
Last, not least, George Burns currently is writing
"How to Be 100 and More."
