^SSON, on instructions from
ilem, reiterated Israel's
less to resume talks on
but only on condition that
the various stalled bilateral
dialogues between the two coun-
tries are resumed at the same
time. These include the auto-
nomy talks and matters related
to the normalization process. The
dialogues have been frozen since
Israel's invasion of Lebanon last
Israel apparently made no
specific demand that Egypt
return its Ambassador, Saad
Mortada, to Tel Aviv before talks
are resumed on the Taba dispute.
Mortada was recalled to Cairo for
"consultations" after the Beirut
massacres. Some observers saw
the absence of that pre-condition
in the Sasson-Hassan Ali talks as
a softening of Israel's position.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Ambas-
sador to Egypt,Alfred Atherton,
told reporters in Cairo that there
were contacts in progress bet-
ween Israel, Egypt and the U.S.
for resumption of technical talks
on Taba. Officials here disclaimed
knowledge of any such contacts.
Taba consists of several acres
of beachfront on the Gulf of
Aqaba which Egypt claims is
part of Sinai and Israel insists is
on its side of the old international
boundary. Israel recently opened
a new resort hotel on the disputed
viet orientation of Syrian Presi-
dent Hafez Assad's recent
rhetoric as an indication that as-
siduous American diplomatic ef-
forts in recent months have failed
to produce a thaw in relations be-
tween Washington and Damas-
The Israelis also express dis-
may over statements by Assad
and the Syrian Defense Minister
vowing that they will not pull
their own forces out of Lebanon
before the last Israeli soldier has
left that country. Israel has con-
sistently demanded the simul-
taneous pull-out of Israeli and
Syrian forces to be preceded by
the withdrawal of the estimated
7,000 Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization fighters from Leba-
tain, however, that the Syrians
traditionally take a very hard line
at the outset of negotiations for
its phychological impact on pros-
pective negotiating partners, but
later modify their stance. They
recall that diplomatic efforts to
get Syrian and PLO forces out of
Beirut appeared to be hopelessly
bogged down last July and
August, but succeeded in Sep-
tember. That analogy is only par-
tially applicable since Israel was
Immbarding west Beirut at the
time. It clearly does not want to
resort to military force at the
present juncture.
Israel's dim view of the Syrian
stance is matched by its disap-
pointment with the strong, per-
sistent negative attitude toward
Israel of President Amin
Gemayel of Lebanon since he
took office after the assassination
of his brother. President-Elect
Bashir Gemayal last September.

morning's meeting as well, said
that the discussions found the
U.S. and Egypt agreeing on the
need to achieve a rapid with-

eign forces from Lebanon, to
push the peace process ahead and
to have Jordanian and Pales-

ing negotiations. He added that
both sides also hoped for further
"coordination and cooperation"
between the PLO and Jordan in
any future talks.

that Habib was "trying his best

Meanwhile, Ali, in a speech
read on his behalf by Undersecre-
tary for Foreign Affairs Shafei
Abdel-Hamid at Al Azhar Uni-
versity on the occasion of Pales-
tine National Day, called for an
Israeli withdrawal from East
Jerusalem and the establishment
of a Palestinian state on the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip. Ali also
condemned Israel's settlement
policies and said that "Egypt
considers them illegal" and that
they "violate international law."
In other developments, Ali was
quoted Sunday by the Qatar
News Agency as saying that the
United States has sent a message
to the PLO through Cairo which
suggested that PLO recognition
of Israel would enable the U.S. to
enter into a dialogue with the or-
ganization, leading to a radical
change in the current Middle
East situation.

Americans Don't
Need to Apologize
ican Jewish organizations cam<
under fire for their "apologetic
behavior" concerning Israel's
military action in Lebanon. Ar-

Court Justice and a former U.S.
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions, told a meeting of the Chi-
cago Friends of Bar-Han Univer-
sity last week, "This behavior is

Goldberg said he could not
comprehend "the unjustifiable
need'" of leaders of major Jewish
organizations to apologize to the
American people for Israel's
policy in connection with the war
in Lebanon. He declared:
"Israelis promptly acted in ac-
cordance with their Jewish values
by demanding a full-scale inves-
tigation of any involvement with
the killing of Palestinian refugees
(in west Beirut camps) by Chris-
tian militiamen."

Prid^r. Decent,
Likud MK Was Not All That Far Off the Mark

It is easy to rebuke Likud Member of
the Knesset Yitzhak Zeyger for his demand
that the commission of inquiry into the
Beirut camps massacres resign. A fanciful
view of Israeli democracy in action
suggests that the country should go down
the road to suicide, if necessary, with a
song in its heart.
That is what Israels Attorney General
Yitzhak Zamir did when he threatened
Zeyger with a "prima facie act that requires
a police criminal investigation."
This is something like Miranda in the
U.S., no doubt. Give the criminal every
right; damn the victim.
VN e are not necessarily agreeing that
the commission. as Zeyger demands, ought
to resign. What we are saying is that self-
examination is one thing, but the growing
semimeni for punishment is quite another.
Punishment of Prime Minister Begin. Of
Generals Sharon and Eitan. Of Foreign
Minister Shamir. Of others
One good question is: In matters of
morality. where do you draw the line? Cer-
tainly this is what people will be asking
who have come to see Israel as standing
today on the spit of their ultimate purpose
as a nation. I f I srael ducks the findings of
the commission of inquiry, then in their

The grim truth is that nations do not
survive on the basis of fulfilling the in-
terests of others alone. As with individuals,
the self is the starting point, even in
matters of profound love between two
people. The rule is simple: Love yourself
first, or you will never be able to love the
What Israel must be cautious about is
pursuing its inquiry into Shatila and Sabra
with an eye on U .S. public opinion. Sen.
Henry Jackson's view of the matter over
national television last Sunday, which
suggested that the inquiry is scoring many
points for Israel on Capitol Hill, should be
beside the point.
Because on Capitol Hill, as in the self-
interested capitals of Europe and in the
hearts of Israel's Arab enemies, the inquiry
merely sustains the growing propagandist-
ic picture of Israel as a racist entity bent on
genocide of the Palestinians. The com-
mission of inquiry is but a surrogate for
Nuremberg doing a suicidal job.
Those who like Israel's silly Attorney
General merely cry, "Damn the torpedoes;
full speed ahead." seem to be blind to the
fact that the torpedoes are muring full
speed. Right on Jerusalem.
Rabbinic Rivalry
We regard with ever-growing amazement
the rivalry and even outright internecine
warfare waged by the
Orthodox Jewish community in the
columns of the daily newspapers during the
past few weeks. It is, to say the least, a
Chilu Ha 'Shem, literally a desecration of
the Name of God and of his Command-

The warfare began with opposing

1 The Agony and Irony
Prophet of the Holocaust Trumi
IMAGINE, if you can. Prune
Minister Begin s agony And the
bitter irony now victimizing him.
The agony is at first glance only
slightly less apparent than the
irony. It is crowned by the death
of his wife. Aliza Begin was a
very private person, and it is not
x hard to understand that she did
:: not take well to the notoriety of
: her husband's high station from
fthe moment he was elected to the
x prime ministership in 1976.
Inevitably, he must reckon
with the negative emotional
impact of this on her fragile
health. For a long time he will
:j: wonder whether it hastened her
death. Or he will ask himself:
: How could the international
x opprobrium heaped upon him.
*. including from pusillanimous
:: Jews, not have contributed to a
deterioration in her condition,
particularly when from her point
of view, it might all have been
avoided if only he had not been
elected in the first place, and by a
marginal fluke at that?
SURELY, Mr. Begin must be
thinking these things now. and
especially because of the guilt he
undoubtedly feels that he was on
a U.S. tour, rather than at his
wife's hospital bedside, when she
died. He embarked upon the tour,
despite her encouragement that
he do so, knowing full well there
was a good chance she would take
a turn for the worse.
The agony goes beyond this. I
spoke to Mr. Begin some ten
years ago in Jerusalem, when aa a
Herutnik he was an insolated
loner in the Israeli world of the
unsinkable Labor Party. He was,
at the time, glad to talk to
anybody who would pay some
attention to him.

viewed the extreme right-wing,
racist Member of Parliament in
London, Enoch Powell, whose
political beliefs for better or
worse are only now gaining
public sympathy among many

Minister on the heap of aahes

Your JCC Presents Two
Nights Of Jewish Fun And Music
1982 Israeli Chassidic Festival Wednesday Night, December 15
A spectacular musical production of song, dance and music
stars is coming to the Tampa Jewish Community Center for a
day night. Dec 15at 7:30p.m.
by top Israeli
on VVednee-
The Israeli Casaeidk Festival is corning to Tampa with songs which have been the
prize winners over the past 14 year*, with performers who have become Israel's top en-
tertainers, with outstanding musical direction and choreography, with the opportunity
to hear, feel and live the old Jewish tradition in the new Israeli spirit.
The Cairfce Festival originated in 1909 as a contest lor the best music set to
Biblical verses, and every year since, composers from around the world enter their
works in spirited competition.
The first Chassidic Festival was intended to be a one-time song contest, but the over-
whelming applause changed the course of history for this musical event.
Unprepared for such enthusiasm and encores, the performers were forced to repeat
the entire performance. A week later, its winning song "Oseh Shalom," topped the
record charts and public acclaim turned this contest into an annual musical event.
The second Chassidic Festival gave birth to not one but three hit songs:
"Yevarechecha." Yedid Nefeeh" and "Sisu et Yerushalayim." It drew its first interna-
tional attention giving rise to the idea and wishes that the Festival be performed to
audiences outside of Israel u well
Its international debut was at New York's Carnegie Hall in 1971. Since that time.
scores of cities on four continents have welcomed the Israeli Chassidic Festival to their
This year marks the Festival's eleventh visit to North America with 58 performances
scheduled this Fail.
Fourteen Festivals have produced 14 LP record albums, 140 new songs, more than
half of which have made the Israeli hit parade and have become well-known the world
over, among them: Shehecbeyanu." "Shema Israel." "Ani Ma'amin," "Adon Olam."
and "Malchutcha." The Festival attained immortality as its songs became a part of the
daily services. Passages of the prayers which were recited for hundreds of years are now
being sung to the new melodies which originated in the Chassidic Festival. And in some
cases, the new melodies have even replaced the traditional ones.
On October 2. 1962. the Israeli Chassidic Festival took place in Jerusalem After the
award ceremony, the group set out on a world-wide tour, to spread the word and give
voice to the winning songs of this year's competition as well as those of previous years.
The Israeli Chassidic Festival adds up to two hours of thoroughly enjoyable enter-
tainment for the whole family. It's the best way to experience Israel without leaving

But the pilots union held out
against the demand that pilots
work up to 16 hours in the cock-

only in emergencies or when a
flight was prolonged by bad

shareholders with political mo-

because the government had sur-
rendered to demands by the
Aguda Israel Party to end El Al
flights on the Sabbath and reli-

world's only international "five-

with the West Bank Palestinians last week was the begin-
ning of indirect talks with the Palestine Liberation Orga-
that Shultz' meeting with the group, which included two
mayors expelled by Israel, Mohammed Milhem of Halhoul
and Fahd Kawasmeh of Hebron, which lasted about 30-35
minutes, did not signal a "beginning" or a "continuation"
of direct or indirect negotiations with the PLO.
Hughes said that as far as he knew, the Palestinians
did not bring a message from PLO chief Yasir Arafat.
Some of the group met with Arafat in Tunis on their way
here to attend the conference at American University
earlier this week on "Palestinians Under Occupation."

Book Review
My Brother Joey Died by Gloria
H. McLendon with photo-
graphs by Harvey Kelman.
Published by Simon A Schus-
ter (The Julian Messner Divi-
sion), 1982.
Author McLendon had pre-
pared programs on grief counsel-
ing for schools and found no liter-
ature on the subject for children
to read. Using the materials she
had developed and contacting her
friend, Harvey Kelman. known
for his commercial photography,
they put together My Brother
Joey Died which was accepted by
the first publisher to whom it was
Kelman said he submitted 30
photographs with the copy and
29 were accepted. All the photos
are of models which Kelman
posed. "It has been nominated
for awards from The National Li
brary Association, The Horn
Book Notables for Children, The
National Book Award, Childrens
Division. It has also been nomi-
nated for The New berry Award"
said Kelman.
Now McLendon and Kelman
are working on a book for step-
children. With the ever increas-
ing divorce rate, and the common
occurrence of children being
raised in seend and sometimes
third households, McLendon has
addressed the problem, again for
the child themselves to read.
VITA Helps Others With Income Tax Returns
If you enjoy helping people and
working with them to make a
difficult task easier, VITA may
be for you. VITA, the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance program
sponsored by the Internal
Revenue Service, is looking for
volunteers to help taxpayers with
their tax returns. Those to be
assisted include lower income
handicapped, or non- English
speaking individuals who have
problems preparing their own
returns. Many of them are
elderly. VITA volunteers reach
out to these people and assist
them with the Form 1040A, the
basic Form 1040, Schedule A and
forms which help these taxpayers
take advantage of certain credits.
To be a VITA volunteer you
must be interested in learning
how to prepare a simple tax
return, but volunteers are not
required to have experience in tax
preparation or an accounting
background. All volunteers must
successfully complete a special
three to five day training course
in basic income tax law and
return preparation. VITA in-
structors and training materials
are provided free by the IRS.
Training in Tampa will be
conducted at a location conveni-
ent to volunteers and instructors
such as the Jewish Community
Center, churches, schools, and re-
creation halls generally starting
in late December and continuing
through January of each year.
As a volunteer, you are not
considered a professional tax
preparer, and will not be held
legally responsible for the return.
Rather, you simply assist the in-
dividual taxpayer to prepare the
return in the best manner
possible. During 1962 the IRS
trained over 15,000 volunteers
who assisted at over 430 Florida
sites. If you would like to volun-
teer, contact Lynda M. Croskey,
jr, if you live in South or West
Tampa. Donna Davis at the Jew-
ish Community Center, 872-4451.

sion which was part of the judi-
cial branch of the government
and could not therefore pass
judgement on the executive
branch. In addition to Begin,
warnings were sent to Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon and For-
eign Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
BUT ZAMIR and other top
academic lawyers flatly rebutted
Zeyger's assertions. Some of
them maintained that Zeyger
plainly fails to understand the
basic nature of a judicial commis-
sion of inquiry. A commission,
these jurists pointed out, is not
part of the judiciary, but a sui
generis institution, set up by the
government itself under statute
to conduct an objective inquiry
into an issue which the govern-
ment determines to be worthy of
such inquiry because of its public
interest and importance.
Zeyger's statement, according
to Zamir, was an apparent of-
fence against the sub judice law
which forbids the publication of
anything calculated to influence a

commission of inquiry in its
Several of the men formally
warned by the commission last
week that they "may be harmed"
by its findings have been seeking
legal advice in preparation for re-
buttal efforts.
BEGIN, however, has let it be
known that he will probably not
avail himself of the statutory
right now offered to all nine men
to reappear before the commis-
sion, to review all relevant
material pertaining to them-
selves, to cross-examine wit-
nesses and to adduce evidence
and witnesses of their own to
strengthen their own cases.
Begin, according to sources
close to him, will send a letter to
the commission explaining once
again why his government ap-
proved the entry of the Lebanese
Christian Phalangists into the
Sabra and Shatila camps despite
the danger of "acts of revenge
and bloodshed" in the wake of
the assassination two days before
of their leader, President-Elect
Bashir Gemayel.
The sources close to Begin
point out that the commission
plainly accepted his version of
the facts pertaining to himself:
that he knew nothing of the mas-
sacre while it was in progress,
since none of the reports that did
come in were relayed to him.
BEGIN MUST answer for
what may be adjudged a lapse or
failure of judgement. He is not in
the position of having to buttress
his own testimony in the face of
contradictory testimony from
another witness.
Beyond the Premier's decision
on how to handle the commis-
sion's formal letter of warning,
the sources close to him stress
that he will demand early elec-
tions if the commission in its
findings attribute any negligence
or wrong doing whatever to him.
These sources say Begin is con-
fident and would be returned
with an increased majority.
Neutral observers say there is
a certain validity in this ap-
proach, in terms of pure princi-
ples of democracy. They doubt,
though, whether the majority of
the electorate would in fact re-
store Begin to power if he were
faulted by this prestigious
inquiry commission. Some ob-
servers contend that a political
response to findings of a judicial
nature is essentially misplaced.
Begin's political defense line
has been echoed already by both
Sharon and Energy Minister Yit-
zhak Modai. Both these men
insist that the commission's
findings would not lead to the
downfall of the government
and certainly not the creation of
an alternative, Labor-led govern-
ment, without elections. Modai
was not among the nine who re-
ceived the warnings.

News in Brief
Problems never come in small
bunches, whether it is personal
ones or community ones.
And boy, there are some very
difficult problems facing our
community right now.
MONEY (or the lack thereof) is
one of the biggest problems. Our
local agencies depend on the sue
cess of the Tampa Jewish
federation annual campaign to
cany them through the year.
That is why the campaign is
titled Tampa Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal campaign.
It serves both as a vehicle to raise
money for local and Israel needs
(there are needs which are neither
local nor Israel, but their per-
centage of the campaign is quite
The problem? The Tampa Jew-
ish Federation campaign has not
met its goal for the past several
years. Result? The local agencies
have not received the dollars for
which they planned. Conse-
Example: Hillel School will
have no money to operate after
February of this year. Period.
$70,000 is needed just to keep the
doors of the school open until the
end of the school year.
Example: The Jewish Com-
munity Center roof not only
leaks, it is a sieve. This project
was delayed while the prospect
for adding a second story to the
JCC was under discussion. The
Israel Emergency Fund drive put
that campaign temporarily out of
the picture.
Result: Any rainy day has
some rooms of the JCC very wet.
Possible roof cave-ins are faced
There is no money to compleU
the total re-roofing estimated
cost $60-80,000 on the 20 year old
Additionally, the JCC has been
operating without a program
director for the past year and
. meanwhile, is in the middle of a
search for a new executive direc-
tor. President Sharon Mock is
temporarilty acting director.
Example: Tampa Jewish So-
cial Service is a victim of
Reaganomics. One social work
position has been eliminated
through government cutbacks on
social services. Meanwhile, the
agency's new buildingis not com-
pletely rented and TJSS has to
carry the whole load.
How can all these problems be
corrected at the same time?
That is the task before the
community right now.
Tampa Jewish Federation
President Michael Levine has
gone over the problems with the
Federation board. Then with a
combined meeting of the execu-
tive boards of the Federation,
Center. Hillel School and Tampa
Jewish Social Service, then with
the top givers of the Federation.
Yes, the message of the problems
is being dispersed, but is there a
message of solutions coming
Tampa Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal campaign
chairman for 1983. Les Barnett,
announces the statistics at
every meeting. "In 1982, the
campaign raised $968,066
($240,000 short of the $1.2 million
goal). That came from 1,915
pledges. But 40 gifts totaled

That is both good and bad
news. It is good that there were
40 individuals in Tampa who
were so understanding and so
generous. It is bad that the re-
maining 1.875 gifts to the cam-
paign were just over what the top
40 gifts totaled!
The problem? How to raise the
level of giving in Tampa. All the
while raising the number of gifts.
Statisticians tell us there are
over 13.000 Jews in Tampa. Last
year only 1.915 saw fit to make a
contribution to the Tampa Jew-
ish Federation-United Jewisr
Appeal campaign.
Of those who did contribute, it
does not appear that most people
gave as much as they could have.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
has the responsibility of raising
these local funds and another
problem is faced there, too. The
position of campaign director is
open and not able to be filled at
the salary the Federation has
budgeted. There's no money to
raise the salary and so the Catch-
22 continues.
