Quiet Diplomacy
Choo-Choo: On The
Habib, Draper Express
|JTA) The State De-
artment said that the
>agan Administration
avors "quiet diplomacy"
achieve its goals in
tbanon and will not dicuss
the "substance" or
['modalities" of that
The Department's deputy
|spokesman, Alan Romberg,
disclosed, however, that U.S.
[special envoys Philip Habib and
(Morris Draper have returned to
Ithi Middle East this week. They
Iwere recalled to Washington last
Iwwk for consultations with the
[President and briefed senior Ad-
ministration officials on what the
[State Department described as
|"progress" made to date.
[both the situation in Lebanon
[and Reagan's overall Middle
[East initiative. Draper has been
[concentrating on efforts to start
1 negotiations between Israel and
I Lebanon for the withdrawal of all
I foreign forces from Lebanon and
I security arrangements for Israel.
Romberg would not comment
| on reports that Secretary of State
George Shultz has suggested a
"shuttle" by the American
envoys between Jerusalem to
Beirut to eliminate the issue of
venue. Israel has insisted that its
negotiations with Lebanon be
held in Jerusalem and Beirut.
The Lebanese government has
Romberg stressed that "The
President has had a plan for
Lebanon for some time" which
"has three elements: assuring
Israel's security; restoring
Lebanon's sovereignty through-
out the country; and the with-
drawal of all foreign forces."
HOWEVER, he said, "Beyond
that, in terms of either substance
or modalities about what Habib
and Draper are going to be doing,
we simply are not going to be dis-
cussing it, reverting to our
previous formalness. We think
that is the most effective way of
proceeding through quiet
Romberg had no comment on
the meeting in Rome today
between Secretary Shultz and
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt. According to reports from
Rome, they met at the Egyptian
Embassy for 30 minutes to
discuss Middle East develop-
ments and Mubarak's visit to
Washington scheduled for the
end of next month. Shultz was
quoted as saying, "We discussed
developments in the Middle East
in which the U.S. and Egypt have
such vital interests."

Features Rabbi Rudin
Rabbi A. James Rudin will be
the featured speaker this evening
t the annual Meyer Kotler
Memorial Lecture at Congrega-
tion Schaarai Zedek.
Rabbi Rudin, Assistant
National Director of Interre-
ligious Affairs of the American
Jewish Committee, works with
the leaders of all religious de-
nominations to secure greater
understanding of Jews and Juda-
ism and to promote good human
relations among people of all

Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has left on a 12-day
official visit to Argentina
and Uruguay in face of
criticism from many quar-
ters in Israel over the Likud
government's apparent
friendship with rightwing
dictatorial regimes.
Shamir's reply was that Israel
is not free to choose its friends
according to the nature of their
internal politics. He noted that he
was invited to Argentina by
President Renaldo Bignonone
and to Uruguay by President
Gregorio Alvarez to meet with
them and their foreign ministers.
HE POINTED out that he has
visited a number of Latin Ameri-
can states in the past, including
Costa Rica. Mexico, Colombia,
Ecuador and the Dominican
Republic with regimes that vary
from democratic to authoritarian.
The Foreign Minister stressed
that he would not be discussing
arms sales to Argentina and Uru-
guay since that was outside his
province. But he promised that in
Argentina he would try to find
out what happened to the many
Jews who have disappeared after
police and security forces arrests
in recent years.
He admitted that this was a
very delicate subject and he
preferred not to expand on it
before his departure. The Labor
Party has issued a statement
criticizing Shamir's trip to
Argentina. He pointed out that
the military junto in Buenos
Aires was responsible for the
disappearance of thousands of
Argentine citizens, including
hundreds of Jews suspected of
"I AM AWARE of this
problem and I will do my best,"
Shamir said He told reporters at
Ben Gurion Airport that he was
also aware of the growing im-
portance of Latin America in
world politics and the world eco-
According to some reports
here, the Jewish community in
Argentina had asked Shamir to
reconsider his visit to their
country because of the current
tensions there. Shamir said he
planned to spend time with local
Jewish communities wherever he
goes and would also preside over
a meeting of Israeli Ambassadors
in the region.

Shortage In Community Goal
Presents Budget Difficulties
There is a statement in the
Talmud which states: "May I be
among the collectors of com-
munal funds and not among the
allocators." The Talmud must
have had in mind the situation
facing the Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion budget and allocations com-
mittee with over a $200,000
shortage in the 1982 campaign
and with requests far exceeding
the income.
Under the chairmanship of
Edward Leibowitz, the budget
and allocations committee spent
many careful hours in delibera-
tion reviewing the budget
requests. The committee was
divided into sub-committees and
met several times with each of
the agencies. The budget was
then approved by the full Board
of Directors of the Tampa Jewish
\ Serving on the budget com-
mittee were: Terry Aidman,
Hope Barnett, Herbert Fried-
man, Maril Jacobs, Rhoda
Karpay, Mike Levine, Roger
Mock, Franci Rudolph, Herb
Swarzman and Dr. Carl Zielonka.
The Federation Board of
Directors previously had passed
a pre-campaign formula alloca-
ting 50 percent of the gross
amount raised to be allocated to
the United Jewish Appeal
Had the goal of the 1982
campaign (SI.200,000) been
reached, there would have been
the opportunity to meet the full
budget requests of each of the
agencies. Federation officials
reported. While the $950,000 is
the largest amount ever raised in
Tampa, the growing needs for
services as well as additional pro-
grams cannot be met this year.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
has adopted a $1,200.000 goal for
the regular campaign in 1983.

PANT! PANT! PANT! Marty Solomon, Michael Linaky.and
Richard Rudolph recently ran, and finished the 26 mile "British
American Marathon. This race was held last month, beginning
at Tampa Stadium with the finish line at St. Petersburg's Al
Lang Field. It was Marty's fourth Marathon, but Michael and
Richard's first to participate in. Marty said to be sure to add
that Richard finished the 26 miles in an incredible three hours 38
minutes (especially for someone who just took up jogging when
he moved down here about three years ago.)! Well guys, we are
truly impressed you must be mighty proud and rightfully
We are thrilled to tell you about an eligable new bachelor in
town in about 25 years that is! Adam Harry Cohen, son of
Andrew and April Cohen, was born on Nov. 21 at 10:59 p.m., at
Women's Hospital. He was 19 inches long and weighed 7 pounds
9'/> ounces. Adam is welcomed by his 2'/i year old sister, Haley
(she can't wait to show him how to get into things!) The proud
Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Irving Cohen and Mr. and Mrs.
Gerald McBride both of St. Petersburg. Lota of love and con-
gratulations to all of you on this happy occasion.
We are so glad you are here Michael Jared Yeahion!
Michael is the baby son of Beverly and Ted Yeahion. He was
born on Nov. 21 at 1 p.m. at Women's Hospital (which is very
convenient since his Mom is a labor and delivery room nurse at
Women's Hospital). Michael weighed 6 pounds 13l/t ounces and
was 20' inches long. He has a very excited 2'/i year old sister
Sarah. Michael is a very lucky little boy as he has many Grand-
parents and Great Grandparents who are thrilled about his ar-
rival. These include: Grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Norman
Yeshion. of Wantagh, New York and Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Gold-
berg, of Levittown, New York; and Great Grandparents Mrs.
Lillie Silberman, of Metuchen, New Jersey: Mrs. Dora Post, of
Brooklyn, New York; Mrs. Ann Goldberg, For Rockaway. New
Jersey; and Mr. and Mrs. Martin Schoenberg, of Miami. Good
wishes to all of you and to you little Michael.
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy
birthday dear Steven, happy birthday to you. Congratulations
to my good friend Steve Wehz, who recently celebrated his 33rd
birthday, with much to do. both at his office and at home with
his wife. Kathy and his daughter. Jennie. Well Steve, for an old
man, you don't look so bad keep up the jogging and you will
probably be completely irresistable by the time you hit 34!
We sure will miss Andy, Cheryle, Max, and Mickey Rosen-
berg who will soon be moving to Englewood, New Jersey. Andy
has become the new Assistant Executive Director of the Greater
United Jewish Fund of Englewood. As a matter of fact, he is al-
ready up there on a part-time basis and will be there for good in
January. Meanwhile, Andy visits back and forth to Tampa while
Cheryle is selling their house and tying up ends here. Cheryle
represents "Arty Party" here and will be opening up the same
business up north. They hope to find a home soon near the
Englewood area in one of the many neighboring towns. Well, it
sounds like a great opportunity, but we sure will miss all of you.
Keep in touch, won't you?
The Jewish War Veterans Albert Aronovitz Auxiliary
No 373 has really been keeping busy lately with various fund-
raising and other activities. However, a couple of events par-
ticularly caught my eye. On Oct. 6, the Auxiliary presented an
instrument called the "Phonic Ear" to the James A. Haley V.A.
Hospital Then on Nov. 30 the Auxiliary presented the Hospital
with an Israeli Chanukah menorah to be lit each night of Chanu-
kah, and displayed in the lobby of the hospital. What a nice way
to bring some of the holiday into the lives of those who may not
be in a position to celebrate at home this year.
Meet Diane and Dr. Marc Tindell, who moved to Carroll-
wood one year ago from Baltimore. Diane is originally from New
Jersey and Marc hails from New York. Marc did his under-
graduate work and attended dental school in Philadelphia. Then
he finished up with a residency in Baltimore. Marc now practices
dentistry in the practice of Pross, Kantor, and Tindell. Our new
family has one daughter two-year-old Julie. Diane is an active
member of the evening chapter of ORT, and of Hadassah. and
she is a member of the Sisterhood of Congregation Kol Ami.
Also, they are both very enthusiastic about a couple's Study
Group that they belong to. Strong current issues are discussed
such as cults, child psychology, etc. Marc enjoys racketball and
they both like running, tennis, and swimming. Also, Diane en-
joys dabbling in various types of art work. We are really glad
that you have chosen Tampa in which to live. We welcome you,
Marc. Diane, and Julie.

Jewish State because of its vast
economic needs. "Now is the time
to approach another segment of
the Jewish community, a seg-
ment whose influence has in-
creased considerably," Dulzin
"We refer to some million
Jews, students, teachers, re-
searchers and professors who we
have to reach and make them join
the Zionist and Jewish frame-
work," Dulzin said. The old
frameworks of the Zionist move-
ment are outdated and no longer
reflect reality and the needs of
the movement, he maintained.
"new Jew" as one no longer per-
secuted and enjoying a variety of
life options. "Zionism can and
must serve as an anchor to the
Jews rocked by the ocean of the
many choices which they face,"
he said.
He said he viewed the Zionist
movement as two concentric cir-
cles, a broad outer one and an in-
ner one. It is in the inner circle
that one can find those Zionists
who should sign the pledge to im-
migrate to Israel, he said. "We
shall not force anyone to do so,
but at the same time we shall not
free Zionists from the personal
duty of confronting the question
of aliya," he declared.
In response to Dulzin's call,
the Congress delegates rose in a
demonstration of solidarity with
Soviet Jewry, the refuseniks,
"Prisoners of Zion" and the
"hundreds of thousands awaiting
aliya." He declared: "We must
not fail. We shall not rest until we
succeed in bringing to Israel
every Jew from Russia, Syria,
Ethiopia and all other lands of
THE WZO chairman discussed
"Project Renewal," the partner-
ship between Israel and Ameri-
can Jewry aimed at eliminating
poverty neighborhoods in Israel.
He referred to the Zionist move-
ment's role in helping increase
the Jewish population in Galilee
and developing that region. He
also discussed plans for the re-
organization of the Zionist move-
ment to enable every Zionist
organization to be represented, to
compete in fairness and to exert
influence within the framework of
the larger Zionist movement.
Dulzin stressed the need for
unity in Israel and the continued
dialogue between Israel and dia-
spora Jewry. "I pray we shall be
a unified nation, the People of the
Book, a cultural, moral nation of
which all Jews will be proud and
to which they will want to come,
never to leave again," he said.
Dulzin's speech was expected
to be the basis of the "general de-
bate" to be held during the Con-
gress which ends on Dec. 18. As
the festive opening session got
underway, with greetings de-
livered by President Yitzhak
Navon of Israel, the inevitable
behind-the-scenes struggle was
being waged between the various
Zionist parties over executive
positions and portfolios.

Political leaders are often judged by
the way their opposition talks about them.
In the case of Miami's Kenneth Myers,
even those who on occasion did not agree
with him when he was a Florida State
Senator serving in the Legislature in
Tallahassee rarely if ever spoke of him in
terms other than laudatory.
It is a mark of the esteem in which
Sen. Myers was held that when he decided
not to run again, there was a general feeling
of disappointment, not only in the elec-
torate, but among his colleagues as well,
both from the north and the south of the
state, who recognized and admired the high
quality of his performance.
Now, Sen. Myers' former constituents
in South Florida have honored him by the
establishment of the Kenneth M. Myers
Bay side Park in Coconut Grove. They have
thus done more than feel regret that he is
no longer serving us in the State Senate;
they have expressed their gratitude for his
enlightened leadership in Tallahassee while
he was there.
This sort of living monument to a
distinguished community leader too often
comes toward the end of one's creative
years. But Sen. Myers again defies the
stereotypes. He is still a young man with
an enviable reputation for past per-
formance and who holds out every promise
of continued active service in the future.
The son of a pioneer Miami family at the
head of which stand distinguished national
and community leaders in their own right,
Stanley and Martha Myers, he demon-
strates that the apple has not fallen far
from the tree.
The Kenneth M. Myers Bayside Park
frames all of these things into a happy
portrait of dedicated service and a grateful
Miami's reaction to it.

Filling in Background
Security Pact 'Close' With Lebanon
Israel's Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon said here that
Israel is "close to" a
security arrangement with
Lebanon and seeks a
normalization of relations
with that country as the
first step toward a full-
fledged peace treaty.
He warned that Israel was un-
alterably opposed to any linkage
between progress toward a peace
treaty with Lebanon and conces-
sions by Israel on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. He contended
that President Reagan's "plan"
for the West Bank would "rein-
stitute the Lebanese model" that
existed before June, 1982 when
Israel launched its "Peace for
Galilee" campaign.
SHARON MADE his remarks
in the course of a 90-minute
closed meeting with representa-
tives of the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American Jewish
Organizations attended by some
100 persons. The meeting was
chaired by Yehuda Hellman.
executive vice chairman of the
Conference, in the absence of its
chairman, Julius Berman, who is
in Israel.
The contents of Sharon's
speech and his replies to ques-
tions were reported to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency by a source
who was present at the meeting.
According to the source, Sharon
intimated that the negotiations
for security arrangements with
Lebanon were direct. He did not
say where or at what level they
were being conducted.
He stressed, however, that
security arrangements can come
about only through direct nego-
tiations so that the signatories
can be held accountable for
carrying out the terms.
ACCORDING to the source,
Sharon said the security arrange-
ments "we are close to" would
contain the following terms:
No Arab army will again be
allowed into Lebanese territory.
Any other foreign forces
such as peace-keeping troops
must be from countries which
recognize Israel.
Lebanon will not permit the
military or political presence of
any terrorist group on its soil.
No artillery, rocket-
launchers or surface-to-air mis-
siles will be permitted in the 45-
50 kilometer zone bordering on
Israeli warning stations will
be operated in that zone until a
formal peace treaty is signed.
Sharon warned that unless
President Amin Gemayel of
Lebanon signs a peace treaty
with Israel he will be the "Presi-
dent of the Presidential Palace
but not of the country." He
meant, apparently, that Lebanon
would degenerate into warring
factions as was the situation be-
fore the Israeli campaign.
BUT SHARON insisted that
Israel was not putting pressure
on Lebanon. "Nothing in our de-
mands go beyond the normal
security needs of both countries,
he said. "There is nothing to be
ashamed of that we want to have
a peace treaty with our neigh-
bors, nothing to be ashamed of
that we want to negotiate direct-
ly in our capital and in their
Sharon disclosed, according to
the source, that as of Nov. 15,
1982, Israel formally opened its
border with Lebanon with normal
customs and passport controls
and that thousands of Lebanese
have crossed into Israel for busi-
ness or as tourists. He did not
say where the border post is lo-
He claimed that commercial
normalization has already begun.
He said $20 million worth of
goods has already entered Leba-
non from Israel, half of it being
Israeli exports and the rest Leba-
nese imports from other countries
transhipped via Israeli ports.
Sharon said Lebanese importers
prefer to use Haifa to their own
WITH RESPECT to Reagan's
plan, which called for Palestinian
control of the West Bank in asso-
ciation with Jordan, Sharon's
view, as conveyed to the JTA,
was that it would invite the same
chaos that prevailed in Lebanon
before June. 1982. According to
Sharon, without Israeli forces in
control of internal and external
security in the territory

Prime Minister Mar-
et Thatcher, who is
[ing to assert herself as
country's foreign policy
Last weekend, Carrington was
liting Tunisia and Jordan for
Tisultations about the Arab-Is-
li conflict. Earlier, he was in
udi Arabia. His mission
Bows the recent decision of
fs. Thatcher to enlist Sir An-
ony Parsons, Britain's former
nbassador at the United Na-
bns. as special adviser on for-
i policy.
ll'HKSK MOVES could have
reaching consequences for
litains Middle East policy,
aditionally this has been a pre-
,ve of the Foreign Office, which
iitains a large contingent of
plomats with experience in
at> countries giving it a repu-
|tion of favoring the Arabs over
? Israelis.
[Mrs. Thatcher's intrusion into
pddle East policy recently came
focus with her refusal to
et on Arab League delegation,
aded by Morocco's King Has-
n. because of the Arab's insis-
nce on bringing along Farouk
kddoumi of the Palestine Liber-
ion Organization.
|Although Mrs. Thatcher sub-
ribed to the European Econom-
I Community's Venice Declara-
bn of June, 1981 urging the
LO's participation in Mideast
ties between the PLO and the
terrorists in Northern Ireland
and the embarrassing inconsis-
tency of holding political dis-
course with the former while
denying it to the latter.
Only last week Mrs. Thatcher's
government barred the leftwing
Labor leaders of the Greater Lon-
don Council from entertaining
representatives of the Sinn Fein,
the political wing of the provi-
sional IRA. But she could
scarcely have done so if she her-
self had recently consorted with
the political wing of the Palestin-
ian terrorists. In this affair, Mrs.
Thatcher was weighing not the
narrow pros and cons of foreign
policy but the broader national
Prime Minister Thatcher
negotiations, she has ruled out
top-level contacts with its repre-
sentatives as long as the PLO
withholds clear recognition of Is-
rael's right to exist and adheres
to a policy of violence.
TO THE disappointment of
the Foreign Office, the Arab
League team preferred to stay
away rather than bow to Mrs.
Thatcher's conditions. Their
visit, already postponed twice, is
now being tentatively planned for
next February.
Carrington is not Mrs. That-
cher's only roving Ambassador.
Last week Lord Chalfont,
another former Foreign Office
Minister, went on her behalf to
Morocco to try to smooth the
ruffled feathers of King Hassan,
who was to have headed the Arab
mission to London.
The Prime Minister's determi-
nation to supervise foreign policy
stemmed from the Falkland Is-
lands conflict last spring. Mrs.
Thatcher blamed the Foreign Of-
fice for the fact that Britain failed
to anticipate the Islands invasion
by the Argentine armed forces.
Although Carrington immedi-
ately assumed personal blamt
and resigned as Foreign Secre-
tary, Mrs. Thatcher seems to
have regarded him as the victim
of his civil servants incompetence
and on accepting his resignation
had hinted he might be recalled in
the future. (A press report last
weekend says he might rejoin the
government when Mrs. Thatcher
next reshuffles her Cabinet).
MEANWHILE, the Prime
Minister's intervention on Mid-
dle East policy is clearly of bene-
fit to the Israelis and Israeli dip-
lomats here have privately wel-
comed it. Whether or not the
Foreign Office's grip will be per-
manently weakened may depend
on the outcome of the next
general election which could be
held as early as next June.
There are, however, two other

Despite her initial outrage over
Israel's invasion of Lebanon and
the ensuing bloodshed, Britain
now increasingly recognizes the

News in Brief
Teller Advises Two Nuclear Reactors
By JTA Report
physicist. Dr. Edward Teller, has
advised the Israeli governent to
build both nuclear reactors as de-
terrents against attacks and a
nuclear power plant for the na-
tion's energy needs.
Teller offered these recommen-
dations during a lecture on "Per-
spectives on the Energy Prob-
lem" at the Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity of the Negev. The "Father of
the Hydrogen Bomb" was in Is-
rael last week to advise the
government on its energy needs.
Any contemplated nuclear
facility would most likely be lo-
cated in the Negev region and re-
lated to the existing desert re-
search projects currently being
conducted by Ben Gurion Uni-
versity as part of the Univer-
sity's overall program of helping
to build the region, which consti-
tutes Israel's largest underde-
veloped land mass, a university
spokesman said.
"If you in Israel want to build
nuclear reactors. I think you
should as a precaution against
aerial bombardment," Teller
said. He suggested that the
government develop an under-
ground nuclear power station.

French diplomatic sources ex-
plained that the decision to renew
the talks was taken at a "high
level" apparently to defuse Is-
raeli accusations on this subject.
The French delegation to Jeru-
salem will be headed by a career
diplomat and will consist of rep-
resentatives of various cultural

Wouk's best-selling novel, "The
Winds of War," set in the years
immediately preceding Pearl

was taking shape in Nazi Ger-
many, will be dramatized by the
American Broadcasting Co. in an
18-hour prime time network tele

It traces the events and forces
that perptrated the Holocaust
and brought the entire world to
the brink of destruction, as seen
through the eyes of an American
naval officer and his family and
an American Jewish girl and her
uncle. The opening episode which
restores on film the long-los

W. Germany Clamps Down
On Neo-Nazi Groups
BONN A neo-Nazi group
that calls for "the liberation of
Germany from American and
Russian imperialism" maintains
contact with officials at the
Libyan Embassy here according
to information released by the
Interior Ministry of Rhineland
Palatinate. The group, which
operates in Mainz, publishes a
periodical entitled "We By Our-
selves." One of the subscribers is
Libya's ruler. Col. Muammar
West Berlin police, meanwhile,
have cracked down on another
neo-Nazi group called "German
Working Youth." A search of
flats yielded weapons, ammuni-
tion, gas masks and propaganda
material. The police took action
after a Jewish college student
was bound and threatened by
three fellow students taking a
judo course at the police training
center in West Berlin.
The anti-Semitic assault was
called "unbelievable" by Heinz
Galinski, chairman of the West
Berlin Jewish community.

them. On several occasions, he
was arrested, but each time, his
contacts and connections secured
his release.
Towards the end of the war,
Schindler was forced to move his
factory; he prepared a list of
"essential" workers containing
the names of 800 men and 300
women. The men were moved to
the new site, but the women
wound up in Auschwitz where
they were in mortal danger of be-
ing gassed. With incredible
chut z pa... Schindler went to
Auschwitz himself and secured
the release of the women on his
list, claiming that they were "ir-
replaceable skilled munitions
workers." Confronted by the
commandant with the names on
the list of two girls age 9 and 11
who could hardly be "skilled
munitions workers," Schindler
argued that they were uniquely
qualified by virtue of their long
fingers which enabled them to get
inside of shells.
AFTER THE war, Schindler
drifted. He spent ten years in
Argentina, then returned to Ger-
many and often visited Israel. He
gradually received some recogni-
tion for his heroic efforts during
the war. One such recognition is a
tree and a plaque on the Avenue
of the Righteous at the Yad
Vashem Memorial.
Visitors to Jerusalem rarely
miss this moving site, and few
can leave it without tears in their
eyes. Readers of "Schindler's
List" will now have a special
objective when they go to Yad
Vashem. They will want to seek
out his name among the Right-
eous and, thanks to Keneally's
fine book, will know in full
measure why he unquestionably
deserves to be honored.

Begin Repeats
No One Could Expect Phalangist Massacre
Premier Menachem
Begin continues to main-
tain that neither he nor his
government had any reason
to suspect that the Christ-
ian P ha Ian gists would com-
mit atrocities against civil-
ians when Israel permitted
them to enter the Sabra and
Shatila refugee camps in
west Beirut last Sept. 16 to
root out terrorists claimed
to be hiding there.
That was the key point made
by Begin in a letter to the com-
mission of inquiry into the
refugee camps massacre which
the commission had made public.
The Prime Minister was one of
nine senior government and mili-
tary officials who received formal
notification from the panel two
weeks ago that they "may be
harmed" by its eventual conclus-
ions. All were given 15 days to re-
appear before the commission to
clarify their earlier testimony and
examine witnesses and evidence.
Five agreed but requested a one-
week extension to prepare their
BEGIN CHOSE to respond by
letter to the commission's war-
ning that it might find him lax in
the performance of his duties
should it conclude that he did not
give careful consideration to the
possible actions by the Phalan
gists "and ignored the danger of
acts of revenge and bloodshed by
these forces against the popula-
tion in the refugee camps."
Begin stressed in his letter,
sent to the commission, that the
P ha Ian gists had refrained from
acts of vengeance "or other
irregular actions," against Pales-
tinians in the two days immedia-
tely after the assassination of
Lebanon's President-elect Bashir
Gcmavel. the Phalangist leader.
According to Begin, their res-
traint "eased fears" and "con-
firmed our knowledge" that the
F'halangists were "organized,
disciplined and certrally control-
led military units."
Begin, who testified in person
before the three-man panel on
Nov. 8. added nothing to his
original brief. His letter stressed
that he had no cause for concern
over the Phalangists' conduct
Consequences of
Nuclear War
The Tampa Coalition for Sur-
vival has invited Dr. Barbara
Ogur, MD, Assistant Professor
of Medicine at the University of
South Florida College of Medi-
cine, and a member of the Physi-
cians for Social Responsibility, to
address their meeting on Mon-
day. Dec. 27. at 7 p.m. at the Ne-
braska Avenue United Methodist
Church, 3838 Nebraska Ave.
In the aftermath of a nuclear
attack on Tampa, what are the
prospects for medical care? How
would modern medicine deal with
the casualties of a nuclear at-
tack? Dr. Ogur will answer these
questions and many others in her
presentation entitled "The Medi-
cal Consequences of Nuclear War
A Good Case for Prevention."
The Tampa Coalition for Sur-
vival presents monthly programs
to inform the public about the
various aspects of nuclear war.

when he and his fellow ministers J
learned on the evening of Thurs-
day. Sept. 16 that Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon had given them
permission to enter the camps.
BEGIN SAID his own consul-
tations with Sharon and Chief of
Staff Gen. Rafael EiUn earlier
that day concerned the Israel
Defense Force's entry into west
Beirut and no mention was made
of any role for the Phalangists.
He defended the Cabinet deci-
sion, made retroactively, to allow
the Phalangists into the refugee
camps because "according to
authoritative information in our
possession" about 2.000 armed
terrorists were hiding in the
Begins letter stated further
Lhat the Phalangists had con-
ducted military operations in the
course of Israel's "Peace for Gali-
lee" campaign in Lebanon with-
out perpetrating "horrors or
slaughter." Therefore, he said, he
"did not at all imagine that the
Phalangists. a trained and organ-
ized military force, facing the
task of hard fighting in difficult
conditions, would want or would
be able to perpetrate massacre."
Begin acknowledged that at
the crucial Cabinet meeting in the
e ming of Sept. 16. Deputy
I emier David Levy had indeed
irned of the possibility of a
assacre. But Levy did not pro-
:ose that the Phalangists be
vithdrawn from the camps or
ihat the Cabinet even address
itself to the issue.
words aroused no response on the
part of any of the participants at
the meetings and this in itself
shows that this possibility (a
massacre) was not considered
likely in the circumstances by
anyone present ''
Begin also stated that Eitan's
warning to the Cabinet that the
Phalangists were "sharpening
their knives there is revenge
in their eyes" was made in
reference to the overall situation
in Lebanon following Gemayel's
assassination, not specifically to
the refugee camps. According to
Begin. Fi tan's "words were
intended to explain the urgent
need for the IDF to take the
actions that it took immediately
in the wake of Gemayel's assa-
ssination," meaning its occupa-
tion of west Beirut.
Begin's letter concluded: "In
light of the circumstances here
described, and in our knowledge
that the Phalangists, in coor-
dination with our own forces, had
entered certain districts to fight
terrorists who were concentrated
in them, there were no grounds to
assume that acta of atrocity
against the civilian population
would be perpetrated."
AMONG THE others who
received warnings from the com-
mission. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and Gen. Amos
Yaron who was divisional com-
mander in west Beirut at the
time, informed the
that they would submit
