But there is uncertainty here
as to just how far the Lebanese
are prepared to go at this time
toward establishing normal rela-
tions with Israel. Premier Mena-
chem Begin, appearing before the
Knesset's Foreijrn Affairs and
Security Committee, conceded
that the Lebanese had declined to

Minister Ariel Sharon brought
back from Beirut 11 days ago and
hailed as a "breakthrough" and
an "agreed framework" for talks.
But it will serve as the basis for
the negotiations, Begin said, ex-

pay led the campaign last year

agreed to this orally.
THE DOCUMENT deals with
the withdrawal of Israeli forces
from Lebanon and security ar-
rangements, some affecting all of
Lebanon and others intended
specifically for Che 40-45 kilometer
zone north of the Israeli border.
Normalization would include the
passage of goods and people
across the border and the estab-
lishment of an Israeli diplomatic
office in Beirut "until the conclu-
sion of a peace treaty." Appar-
ently there is no provision for
similar Lebanese representation
in Israel.
The document is being referred
to here now as an "agenda"
rather than an "agreed frame-
work." All Israeli sources agree
that the negotiations will be long
and arduous and probably go
through several crises before a
formal agreement is achieved be-
. tween the two governments.
The uncertainty hovering over
the scope and pace of the talks
stems from differences within the
Lebanese government. Israeli
sources insist that President
Amin Gemayel, in effect, en-
dorsed the document Sharon ob-
tained after high level meetings
with undisclosed Lebanese offi-
cials in Beirut. The Israeli Cabi-
net gave its formal approval. But
Gemayel did not. Israeli sources
admit that Lebanon's Moslem

Germany Appeals to Holland to
Release Two Nazi War Criminals
(JTA) Premier Rudolph
Lubbers has expressed
"surprise" that the West
German parliament has de-
cided to renew its appeal to
the Dutch government to
release the last two Nazi
war criminals incarcerated
in Holland.
They are Franz Fischer, 80,
and Ferdinand Aus der Fuenton,
70, serving sentences in Breda
prison, who were the subjects of a
similar appeal by Bonn in 1979.
Aus der Fuenten, and another
war criminal held in Breda, Willy
Lages, now deceased, were in
charge of the mass deportation of
Jews from Holland during World
War II.
The Bundestag unanimously
adopted a resolution requesting
The Netherlands and the govern-
ments of five other countries to
free the last German war
criminals imprisoned by them for
"humanitarian reasons." Lub-
bers said that no such request
has reached his government and
said he considered it "a purely in-
ternal matter of the West Ger-
many Federal Republic"
Justice Minister Frits Korthals
Altes said he has no plans what-
ever for the early release of the
two prisoners at Breda. The lower
house of the Dutch parliament
reacted to Bonn's plea with
The Bundestag also asked the
Italian government to release war
criminal Walter Reder, a native
of Austria. A similar request was
made recently by the Austrian
government. The U.S., Britain,
France and the Soviet Union
were asked to free Hitler's one
time deputy fuehrer Rudolph
Hess, convicted at Nuremberg,
who is serving a life sentence at
Spandau prison in Berlin.

An American Newsman
He tells the Truth About Lebanon
Gannett News Service
. A tour through northern
Israel and southern
Lebanon in the midst of a
war is an eye-opening
experience. But I wasn't
prepared for what I saw. It
didn't match the picture of
widespread destruction I
had seen on American
television. Like a filter, the
cameras caught only one
side of the story.
Here's what I saw during a
three-week tour of the Mideast
sponsored by the American
Jewish Congress:
Nearly every housing complex
in Israel near the Lebanese
border has a playground.
BUT THE basketball courts
are within view of bomb
shelters the grim reminders of
PLO attacks and atrocities.
Avi, an Israeli living near the
border, remembers one attack
In the predawn hours of June
of 1975, four PLO terrorists
stormed into his father's house in
Kfar Yuval, just south of the
border. By nightfall, his brother,
sister and brother-in-law lay
A memorial to the family in the
tiny community center shows
haunting pictures of the victims,
including one of his sister
wearing her wedding dress.
Near the pictures stands a
table thick with the wax from
memorial candles. The people
have not forgotten their neigh-
SILVANA, a 22-year-old
Israeli woman who has seen
neighbors killed by the PLO says
the land is "irrigated in blood."
Crossing the border into
Lebanon one must pass through
an Israeli army check-point and
sign a form releasing the
government from any liability in
case of injuries. I signed it along
with 40 others on our tour bus,
which is joined by an Israeli army
The mountain road leading
into southern Lebanon is narrow
and winding. Barely enough
room for the bus to pass a
Mercedes coming from the op-
posite direction. There is no
guard rail. There also seems to be
no driver in the car. I look again.
A child is driving the car. He can
barely see above the dashboard.
Our bus passes a village.
Only a few houses are
destroyed. Unlike the pictures on
television, which made it look as
if towns had been wiped off the
face of the earth.
The striking image is that, not
10 yards from a bombed house, is
another house not even touched
by a bullet.
Israeli army scouted the area to
find which houses were used as
PLO bases. When the houses
were identified, they were
One looks at the closeness of
the neighboring houses and
realizes that precision must have
been the order.
Israeli soldiers made sure the
houses they chose to be bombed
were the ones used as PLO
strongholds, said a 26-year-old
Israeli soldier who grew up in
Teaneck, N. J. It was a move that
hurt Israel He said more than
100 Israeli soldiers were shot
Head and hundreds more injured
by PLO terrorists who were
hiding in civilian houses and
opened fire.
Israeli troops used "one of the
most humane methods of war-
time fighting," said Arieh
Dulzin. chairman of the Jewish
Agency and the World Zionist
Organization. "I don't think
there has ever been a war where
people have been more careful.
The truth will come out."
The PLO also terrorized the
Lebanese civilians. Dr. Nissin.
another army information officer,
said that when the Israeli force?
took over the PLO strongholds,
they saw Lebanese women line
the streets with their skirts
raised. The Israeli soldiers asked
why. The women said they lived
in fear of the PLO and whenever
the terrorists took over their
towns, the men demanded sex or
their lives.
NISSIN SAID: "They used
sex as the only way to survive
their captors. We must remove
the element of tenor.''
Now the flag of a free Lebanon
flies from the Beaufort Castle
high atop a strategic mountain.
The castle built by Crusaders was
a PLO stronghold. In the shadow
of the castle a Lebanese soldier
stands guard alongside an Israeli
unit of about 20 men. Spent
bullets and shrapnel litter the
Visitors are warned not to walk
down the mountain slopes, which
could be loaded with land mines.
Although the lookout towers
are manned, one hardly expects
to see Russian-built planes swoop
by. From this lonely lookout
point, soldiers gladly pose for
pictures. They hand over their
M16 rifles, plop their helmets on
the tourists and put their arms
around women's waists.
"When you look at these
pictures," one soldier says,
"think of the hour of pleasure you
gave to the Israeli army."
On the ride back, one notices
Lebanese boys and girls playing
a game by the road. They stop
when the bus comes. They wave.
We wave back. The children
In the background, one can see

Life goes on. But now it goes
on without the fear of the PLO.

mony renaming (symbolically)
that stretch of Gomez Street
which is the connecting link of
the parking lots of the Jewish
Towers and the Jewish Com-
munity Center. Just a little back-
ground in case you are not
familiar with the area. The block
of Gomez Street which runs be-
tween the Jewish Community
Center and The Jewish Towers
was closed to traffic over a year
ago. Most of the former street is
now planted with shrubbery and
there are concrete benches and
picnic tables there making a
small park setting. A small por-
tion of the street exists, but only
as an access between the parking
lots of the two buildings. There
are no houses, it is no one's ad-
The Tampa Jewish Federation
had asked the mayor's office to
rename this little stretch "Soviet
Jewry Pass." It was not easy to
persuade them to do so, but since
it was only symbolic, permission
was granted.
On the day of the ceremony the
Mayor arrived ... 30 minutes
ahead of time. The other partici-
pants were not yet there. The
mayor could not stay, but his
chief of staff, George Pennington,
with the sign "Soviet Jewry
Pass" were present for the
formalities. When Pennington
went to attach the sign, he dis-
covered that it would take par-
ticular tools.
Returning to the Mayor's of-
fice, Pennington reported that it
would require a crew to affix the
sign. That's when it was first
realized that somewhere, the
temporary sign had become
translated into a permanent sign.
Result: no sign would be at-
There remains in the office of
the Tampa Jewish Federation an
official street sign proclaiming
Soviet Jewry Pass. The thinking
now is that it will be installed
near the picnic area between the
Jewish Towers and the JCC. Not
officially, but not illegally, either.
Why was so much made of this
in the daily paper? Must have
been a slow day.
"Light their way to Freedom" was the theme and Bella Krantz cele-
brated her first Chanukah candle-lighting ceremonies in freedom dur-

Israel As Siamese Twin: Independence Further Removed Than Everl
In its pre-natal existence. Zionism
swam the waters of the womb indifferent to
the enormous possibilities of its Turkish
host. Later, it was born to the horror of life
as a Siamese twin of the ugliness of British
rule. With the coming of independence in
1948, modern Zionism still found itself
attached, this time to the ugliness of
American rule.
That rule has never been uglier than
today. Nor has Israel's independence ever
seemed a greater travesty, its Siamese
status by now utterly inseparable from the
stupidity and self-interest of an obtuse
President and a State Department mired in
the mythology of Arab virtue.
The visit of Jordan s King Hussein
last week showed Secretary of State Shultz
and Mr. Reagan at their worst. A perfect
schizoid, the King had come in the cause of
a new Palestinian state at the head of which
would stand Yasir Arafat; little more than
a decade ago. Hussein blasted the PLO out
of its Jordanian fortress and sent it
scurrying for its life into Lebanon.
In the interim, the King stood aloof of
the Yom Kippur War. fearful that he would
lose even more ground than he did on the
West Bank in the Six-Day War of 1967.
Since then, he has rigorously abjured the
Camp David accord to which Mr. Reagan
u>. by his own campaign promise, com-
mitted and which he has tried to get
Hussein to join since his incumbenc)
Last week, both Shultz and Reagan
rewarded the Jordanian monarch's
recalcitrance by promising him all sorts of
goodies if only he would plead the cause of
the so-called Reagan peace initiative of
Sept. 1 with his Arab brethren a plan
designed to establish a Palestinian entity
on the West Bank in confederation with
Jordan which would, of course and in short
order, become the new Palestinian state
Yasir Arafat has been struggling for just as
a starter in his war of liquidation against
The trouble with the President s
initiative is that it is a flagrant violation of
the very Camp David process he has at-
tempted to interest Hussein in; needless to
say. that is why the King is modestly
enthusiastic. Furthermore, nowhere in all
of this feverish activity has a single
American official yet come to his senses to
recognize both the weakness and the
danger inherent in the Reagan plan, whose
ultimate end will be little different from
Secretary of State William Rogers' plan in
the early days of the Nixon
Administration: complete amputation of
Israel back to its 1948 condition.
Nor has anybody distanced himself
sufficiently from the media to recognize the
original purpose and remarkable
achievement of Israel in Lebanon the
possibility of peace under independent
Lebanese rule. On the contrary, punish-
ment of Israel is the main objective of the
Reagan Administration for having dared to
set up new and hopeful possibilities in the
Middle East without meddlesome and.
needless to say, bungling interference on
the part of Mr. Reagan and all of his
Bechtoil men.
Meanwhile, back at home, Israel

continues to lacerate itself with its inquiry
into Shatila and Sabra as a hypocritical
world judges its morality negatively and
helps Uncle Sam plot the demise of "his
Siamese captive with greater enthusiasm
than ever.
It Works Both Ways
Friends of Israel in the United States
were treated to their first dose of interna-
tional hypocracy American style. The
event centered upon the recent rift between
Jerusalem and Washington over the Israel
government's requirement that all
foreigners seeking work permits on the
West Bank sign a pledge to refrain from
"any act or rendering of any service to the
PLO or any other hostile organization as
defined by law.'
So far 21 foreign lecturers and teacher,
employed at Bir Zeit University and Al
Najah, both on the West Bank, have been
forced to leave the country because they
refused to sign the pledge on the grounds
that it was a political document that in-
fringed on academic freedom. Secretary of
State George Shultz, reminding all of his
former life in the academic community as
dean of the graduate school of business at
Chicago University, compared the pledge
requirement to that of loyalty oaths
demanded by certain American universities
in the 1950s and urged the academic com-
munity to speak out against it.
But theTsrael Embassy was quick to
retort that the pledge requirement was
similar to that being required of aliens
seeking entry into the U.S. The U.S. law
bars temporary visas to persons including
teachers, who are anarchists, Communists,
Nazi war criminals and groups whose aim is
to overthrow the government.
.-This stipulation has been used by the
U.S. to exclude professors from East
European countries and other Marxists, as
well as members of the PLO. The PLO, to
remind those whose memory fails them, has
stated repeatedly, and in fact has tried, to
secure its goal of liquidating the Jewish
State. A reading of the PLO charter and its
stated aims and public comments by lead-
ing officials in the organization might help
refresh one's memory.
So it was with a bit of irony that a
mere week after : he Shultz castigation of
Israel, the State Department chose to bar a
leading Palestinian poet and PLO sym-
pathizer Mohmoud Darwish. from par-
ticipating in the New York City poetry
reading to raise funds for the United
Nations Children's Fund relief work in
Lebanon because of his ideological views.

during the 13 days he spent at
the Man-land presidential retreat
with Israeli Premier Menachem
Begin and Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat and gives a day-by-
day account which makes this
book a must reading for all those
interested in Israel and the Mid-
dle East
The Camp David account as
well as other sections of the book
display Cartels good points. His
commitment to the search for
peace, his willingness to work
hard and to acquire a thorough
knowledge of any subject with
which he dealt he spent hours
studying about Begin and Sadat
before they arrived at Camp Da-
vid and his ability to stick
with the issue and determination
to see it through are the ingredi-
ents that brought success at
Camp Davui
BUT OTHER qualities are re
group; most of the West Euro-
pean leaders were included.
The book also confirms the
feeling that many had. and not in
the Jewish community alone,
that Carter while supporting Is-
rael was tilting toward the Arabs.
Carter starts his discussion of Is-
rael by noting the "affinity" he
had for the Jewish State when he
was elected. But now I had been
elected President and needed a
broader perspective." he writes, a
not unusual development when
supporters of Israel are elected or
become Prime Ministers of West
European countries
This perspective led Carter to
seek rights for the Palestinians
which he listed as "the right to
\ Me, the right to assemble and to
debate issues that affected their
lives, the right to own propertv
without fear of being confiscated
and the right to be free of mili-
tary rule It was this belief that
Israel was depriving the Pales-
tinians of these rights that put
Carter into conflict with Israel
and with American Jews.
BUT THERE were also per-
sonality problems. Carter called
Sadat along with the then Japan-
ese Premier Masayosho Ohira "s
special friend among foreign
leaders. Writing of his first
meeting with Sadat, he said "a
shining light burst on the Middle
East scene for me." He rightly
praises Sadat for his courage in

egraphic Agency, expressing the fear that
could be in physical danger. He said he went

anized tour, was not simply a visitor in search

has a solid background on the status and

\S of which he is a board member; the United
Irish Appeal in which he is very active; and
Dugh other American Jewish organizations.
Jut he stressed to the JTA that he had not

esentative of any American Jewish
anization, though he and other members of his
[up brought with them names and addresses of
Wniks because they wanted to talk to some.

er American Jewish visitors were under
slant surveillance by the KGB. He said that

ush visitors met and talked to showed no signs

I immediately lost their jobs when they applied
emigration to Israel. In a society in which
eminent is the sole employer, a substitute
rce of income is a severe problem, he observed.
lesten said that, after two days in Leningrad,
Americans proceeded to Moscow where they
nained until they left the Soviet Union.
(esten said the refuseniks repeatedly asked the
nerican visitors what help American Jewry
Lid provide them to enable them to live as Jews
[the USSR. He said that the frequency of that
real left him with the impression that the
luseniks had reluctantly accepted the con-
sion they would probably never be allowed to
|Kesten related that impression to the drastic
of a peak of 60,000 emigrating Jews in 1979
| around 250 in September. Kesten's group was
first to visit the Soviet Union to learn about
impact of that drastic drop in emigration
es and emigration hopes of Russian Jews who
I planned to leave.
| On a visit to the apartment of one of the
useniks, Kesten related, three other young
refuseniks came to the apartment to meet the
Jewish visitors from America. Each time one of
the visiting refuseniks rang the doorbell for
admittance, such was the paranoia of the host
couple that "their heads just spun around,"
Kesten said.
He said "it was like viewing a movie film about
the 1930s; one would think of what had happened
in Germany, every time there was a knock on the
door or the doorbell rang" in that apartment.
Kesten, who is also a member of the Board of
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, said the visitor
encountered many moving experiences. One
involved a visit to the Moscow home of a
refusenik denied emigration ten years previously.
The refusenik had a map of Israel on a wall of
his apartment, which he indicated to his visitors
was the closest he ever expected to get to Israel.
Kesten said that meeting took place on a
Saturday and that he and his wife expected to be
enroute Monday to Israel.
He said it was "a very tough feeling" to know
their host would probably never get there. But,
when the Kestens told him about their pending
visit to Israel, it appeared "comforting for him to
know that here were two Jews in his apartment
who in two days were going to be in Israel."
A 'Catch-22' Situation
Kesten said he agreed with the viewpoint of
concerned Jews that it was as much a duty of
world Jewry to try to make it possible for Russian
Jews who could not or did not want to leave the
Soviet Union to be permitted to live freely as
Jews, as it was to try to get those out who wanted
to leave.
Asked whether his experiences had left him
with a feeling that Soviet Jews could neither leave
as Jews nor live as Jews, Kesten responded
"that's correct." He said it was a "catch-22
situation." He said the refuseniks asked the
American Jewish visitors for help "in the sense
that if a husband or breadwinner is incarcerated,
they need help to get an attorney, or help to
support the family while the father is in-
carcerated." He added, sadly, "they don't know
how we can actually help them."
Asked if he and his fellow-visitors found any
evidence to support any possibility that the Jews
forbidden emigration can live freely as Jews in the
USSR, Kesten replied "the young Jews we talked
to don't think so."
'Heroes Of The Jewish People'
Kesten said that while he and his fellow visitors
had talked only to refuseniks, he had the im-
pression that the majority of Russian Jews
followed a policy of "keeping a low profile; they
don't make waves." Nevertheless, he added,
despite the harassment visited on the refuseniks,
there is a minority who are "in the forefront of
continuing with Jewish education, with teaching
their children Jewishness," despite formidable
He expressed astonishment that, with all the
abuse that their elders the Russian Jews in
their late 60 's or early 70's have known, there
are still Jews now, in their 20's and 30's, who are
starting to subject themselves to the role of
behaving as Jews, "knowing that they are going
to be harassed and knowing that they are willing
to "pop up and are willing to associate with and
be involved with Jewish movement."
Kesten called such young Russian Jews
"heroes of the Jewish people, who for whatever
reasons, are standing up to be counted with the
Jews of the world."
Judaism and Sexual Morality
_ scandals of the Pulitzer and Kimberly
lilies in Florida are sickening in them-
[lves to any sensitive moral conscience. But
assume greater importance if viewed as
dramatic illustration of the declining
ial morality in America and its
restating human consequences.
For much of American history, the Puritan
oral code dominated with its stringent
aphasia on sax as sinful leading to
live sexual behavior and inevitable

*EN AND WOMEN felt free to exploit
each other as sex objects, playthings for
instant gratification. Pre-marital, extra-
marital relations, menage-a-trois,
homosexuality, lesbianism, incest were all
justified by the new narcissism as
"recreational sex."
Sexual freedom became perverted into
license, whose consequence has been much
unhappiness, human degradation, and
debauchery an assault on the dignity of
the human person.
Jewish morality has always advocated the
golden mean, an avoidance of extremes.
Sexual relationships, Judaism teaches, must
be an expression of genuine love and respect
between two people. Tzniut modesty, eelf-
restraint must characterize all healthy
sexuality. The Florida scandals, and others
like it, would never happen were the balanced
and humane Jewish sexual code taken
Yehuda Blum
Israel's Basic Position
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) Israels basic interests and posi-
tion at the United Nations did not change during the 37th session of
the General Assembly, Ambassador Yehuda Blum of Israel told re-
porters here at a briefing.
Blum said, however, that it is expected that next year the Arabs will
attempt again to suspend Israel from the Assembly. He added that
the composition of the Security Council will be "worse" next year be-
cause Pakistan will replace Japan, Nicaragua will replace Panama and
Malta will replace Ireland as part of the rotation of seats.
The envoy noted that the Assembly, which concluded after being in
session for three months, opened a few days after the massacre of
Palestinian civilians in Beirut and marked the first time Israel had
participated in an international forum since the "Peace for Galilee"<
operation was launched June 6.
"The timing was not in Israel's favor," Blum said, referring to the
proximity of the events in Lebanon and the opening of the Assembly
session. "But at the end there was not a great deal of change as far as
Israel is concerned. We knew that there would be a series of anti-Israel
resolutions (in the Assembly), as in previous years, but all in all Israel,
at the conclusion of the Assembly, is more at ease than when the As-
sembly opened."
A 'Failure' For The Arabs
Blum claimed that the Assembly session could be viewed as a "fail-
ure" for the Arabs. He noted that when the session began it seemed
that the Arabs were going to try to use their diplomatic muscles to
make up for the military defeat in Lebanon and the lack of concerted
Arab reaction to the Israeli operation. But the Arab delegations did
not succeed, Blum said.
"The Arabs at the UN have realized that the Palestine Liberation
Organization was crushed militarily and politically in Lebanon," the
Israeli envoy said. As a result, he observed, the Arabs, in order to
sweeten the bitter pill of defeat the PLO had to swallow, supported
even more extreme resolutions in the Assembly dealing with Pales-
tinian rights than they did in the past.
But, behind the scenes, it was clear that the PLO had lost ground
with the Arab delegations, Blum said. "This became particularly clear
in relations between Jordan and the PLO," he said. He noted that the
division of interests became evident "with the struggle and sharp ex-
changes' between the two sides.
Disappointed With Europeans
Blum expressed disappointment about the attitude of the European
countries toward the Mideast conflict. He said that while the Euro-
pean countries voted against the extreme pro-Palestinian resolutions
last year, they preferred to abstain this year. This was clearly demon-
strated Monday when the European countries abstained on a resolu-
tion calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state under the
leadership of the PLO, Blum said. He also expressed "disappoint-
ment'' that a number of Latin American countries supported this year1'
the anti-Israeli resolution on the Mideast.
Blum said that Israel was successful in thwarting the Arab move to
suspend Israel from the Assembly. He said that this was possible be-
cause the United States took a very firm position against the Arab
As for the role of Egypt in this year's Assembly, Blum said that the
Egyptians used the occasion as part of their campaign to return to the
Arab fold. As a result, Blum said, the Egyptian rhetoric at the UN
was very unpleasant to Israeli ears. "It began in April, when Israel
completed its withdrawal from the Sinai. The Egyptians suddenly
started sharpening their rhetoric" against Israel, Blum said, noting
that the Egyptian speeches at the UN during the Lebanon war were
among the sharpest attacking Israel.

"Have Kipot, Menorahs and
Dreidels will travel," should
be the motto for six Hillel
students and their drivers. These
6th, 7th and 8th graders have
traveled all over the county pre-
senting Chanukah programs to
both private (secular and
parochial) and public schools.
The goal of this newly recreated
Hillel Speakers' Bureau is to bet-
ter inform students and profes-
sionals about the history,
legends, foods and fun of
Chanukah and other holidays.
The group comprised of Ari
Golson, Danielle Heyman,
Michael Stein, Laura Gordimer,
Daniel Bornstein, and Matt Hilk
were selected by speech teacher
Lynn Reiber to initiate this year-
round service. In addition to the
narrative, candles were lit. songs
sung and booklets presented to
;ach school. Throughout the year
other students will participate.
Major concerns for educators,
suggested activities and a brief
bibliography provided relevant
information compiled by Lynn
Reiber and Nina Sinsley and
illustrated by Karen Krai.
Candles glowed at the recent
Hillel School 6th grade presenta-
tion at the JCC highlighting the
concerns for Russian Jewry.
Proud parents acknowledged the
soul-stirring readings so ap-
propriate during the Festival of
Lights and Freedom.
Spinning students celebrated
at the Student Government
dance. The disc jockey was kept
busy meeting the requests.
These were but a few of the
lights and highlights of a happy
Hillel holiday season.

I On the possibility of similar
talks between Lebanon and Syria
and Lebanon and the Palestine
Liberation Organization,
Romberg said that such talks are
"very important and essential
parts of the entire withdrawal
process" but that be did not
think the United States "has a
direct role in those talks."
With respect to press reports
of contacts between Israel and
the PLO, concerning prisoners of
war, Romberg said "I don't see a
role, particularly, for the United
States. We are concerned about
the prisoners held by all the
various parties but obviously, do
not have contacts with the PLO.
As I understand those press
reports, they suggested that
Austria might be playing a
mediating role." But Romberg
said he had no additional infor-
mation about that possibility.
JCC Art Classes
Participants will receive advice
on which classes to take and will
be able to register for courses
with vacancies, explained Lee
Leavengood, director of the divi-
sion of lifelong learning, School of
Continuing Education. In addi-
tion, they will receive library
cards and parking permits.
More than 100 senior citizens
attended classes on the Tampa
campus during the fall semester,
she said, pointing out that stat-
istics hardly do justice to the
program. "Most of our students
are repeats. They come for one
course and continue taking class-
es each semester."
Two very satisfied customers,
Joseph and Frances H. Neblett,
helped organize the Senior
Citizen Orientation and Regis-
tration Program. Last year they
were named volunteer directors
of USF's Senior Citizen Program,
the largest of its kind in a Florida
university. The Nebletts were
among the first to sign up for
classes when the Senior Citizen
Tuition Waiver Plan was in-
stituted in 1960. Now, they will
be on hand to assist other senior
citizens with course selection and
the registration process.

Council of Jewish Federations
Monitoring Jewish Communal Life
The Council of Jewish Federa-
ls, keeping its finger on the
llse of Jewish communal life in
United States and Canada,
been monitoring during the
sending year the impact
rh the economic difficulties in
country and the federal
iget cuts were having on
(rish families and individuals.
The CJF undertook a fact-
iing survey of 50 key Federa-
ls. They were a representative
lple of all the 200 organized
. ish communities. The study
(li-cntrated on establishing the
ent to which lower income and
idle income Jewish families
re been affected by the econo-
recession. The findings were
cussed with representatives
national Jewish agencies
taRed in social services and in
[nation. The latter were ad-
ed by the CJF to make similar
lies in their own fields. The
vi'v was conducted under the
ction of Lester Levin, the
of the CJF Community
^nning Department.
[In Federations contacted by
CJF all expressed concern,
py included communities with
iwish population of 40.000 and
such as Baltimore.
troit. Cleveland. Newark,
ami. Philadelphia as well as
ermediate communities with
[>ulations ranging between
lanta. Cincinnati. Houston.
Rochester and others. They also
included small intermediate com-
munities numbering from 5.000
to 15,000 Jews, like Indianapolis,
Louisville. Memphis, Nashville,
Omaha, St. Paul, Seattle,
Syracuse, Richmond.
Almost all of the respondents
indicated that not only lower
income groups who are often
dependent on services provided
by local Jewish agencies are
being affected by the present
economic conditions, but also
significant numbers of middle
income Jewish families and
individuals. Some reported
unemployment in their com-
munities: others emphasized the
difficulty among Jewish college
graduates in finding employment
and the increasing numbers of
Jewish married women entering
the work force to supplement the
family income.
In general, the Jewish com-
munal service agencies were
concerned about growing case-
loads and requests for services
and the potential inability to
meet these growing needs due to
limitations in their budgets
resulting from federal budget
The national Jewish Welfare
Board, which was one of the
national Jewish agencies that
followed the advice of the CJF to
conduct surveys of their own
among their member agencies in
order to gain additional factual
information. established the

There is an increased in-

Centers are serving more

Some families with higher
income levels are requesting
scholarships, while others are
choosing to drop their member-
ship in the Centers rather than
request assistance.
Some see the Center day
camp fee as so far beyond their
means that they are not even
bothering to inquire as to finan-
cial aid or enrollment.
A picture also emerged from
reports coming from 65 Jewish
Centers showing that more
middle class members are taking
longer to pay memberships. In
some cities Jewish middle class
members, being hardest hit by
economic difficulties and in-
flation, are hesitant to apply for
reduced membership fees and are
foregoing Center services. Middle
class families in some com-
munities can no longer afford full
fees even for nursery schools.
Senior adults are worried because
of the high cost of living and the
threat of Social Security cut-
backs. More middle class
management husbands are losing
their jobs.
In the field of Jewish educa-
tion, a survey conducted by the
Jewish Educational Services of
North America shows that there
is a declining enrollment and
participation in Jewish com-
munal education; that unem-
ployment and inflation increased
the number of middle class Jew-
ish families who cannot afford to
pay now tuition for their children
in Jewish schools; that staffs
have been curtailed in the schools
Designer Sportswear & Dresses
and lunch programs have been
reduced there in quantity and
quality and that there are in
creasing numbers of requests for
scholarships from non-eligible
income groups. As a result of the
impact of the economic crisis on
Jewish families. Jewish educa-
tional institutions anticipate a
further decline in enrollment in
schools and in summer camps.
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions advised local Federations to
continue to monitor the impact of
the present economic situation
locally, as the numbers of indi-
viduals affected are growing. It
suggests some short-term solu-
tion for the communities to
explore. They include develop-
ment, or expanding, small loans
to middle-income families for
participation in Jewish
programs, the expansion of
scholarship fund dollars, and the
financing of a revolving loan
fund, supported by non-
camoaiirn sources including
endowment allocations, corporate
and foundation grants and
special gifts.
Israel Has New
Sea-to-Sea Missile
Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI)
announced it has a new sophis-

vanced stages of development.
It is the Gabriel Mark 3 sea-to-
sea missile a new development
based on the IAI-designed and
produced Gabriel sea-to-sea mis-
sile, which has had a great suc-
cess in Israeli sea battles, with a
very high hit rate.
The new missile can be luanch-
ed from a wide variety of aircraft
at an undisclosed maximum
height Fitted with a radar
target-seeking device, the missile
drops to near sea level and can
then continue to its target in
either one of two ways.
It can be sent in the general
direction of the target with its
course amended by the aircraft
pilot, or it can be fired to use its
radar to seek its target independ-
ently of its launching aircraft
which can then leave the area.
The range of the Gabriel Mark
3 is over 36 miles. It strikes its
target just above the waterline.
It is fitted with a 150-kg war-

Lebanon's Role in Massacre
Kept Secret on Capitol Hill
Massacre Inquiry Panel Hears
From Officers On Duty
Deputy Secretary of State
Kenneth Dam, in a recent ap-
pearance before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
repeatedly stressed the need to
support the new and fragile
government of Lebanese Presi-
dent Amin Gemayel. The success
of the Gemayel government is
"crucial" to the Reagan Admin-
istration s peace efforts in the
Middle East, he pointed out. This
(a a position in which there is
little quarrel.
But Dam also used the need to
bolster the Lebanese government
as the reason why he could not
say anything about the "secret"
investigation that government .s
conducting into the massacre at
tre Palestinian camps at Shatila
- and Sabra in Beirut in Septem-
*>er. He sought to assure the
Senate committee that the Leb-
anese investigation was as
Trious" as the open probe being
conducted by Israel's com-
mission of inquiry.
YET THE effort to keep the
*I>ot light off any Lebanese res-
ponsibility for the massacre, an
fffort that has been evident in
Washington, as well as in Beirut,
sirut> the massacre occurred, is
Sen. Charles Percy (R.. 111.),
> d.iirman of the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee, praised Israel
for living up to its democratic
traditions. in holding open
hearings in which the public had
ai i liable the testimony of the
government leaders and military
men being interrogated. Other
senators who had been critical of
Israel's actions in Lebanon, have
ut tered similar sentiments.
From the first it has been clear
i any reasonable person that no
I ieli soldier took part in the
killings. Judgment on Israel's
ra of the blame should now be
in abeyance until the com-
mission issues its report. But the
bl imp, if it is so proven, is that
Israeli officials should have
anticipated the massacre and
thai it could have stopped the
killings earlier.
THERE SEEMS to be no
doubt that the massacre was
conducted by Lebanese Christ-
ians, who were let into the camps
to look for Palestine Liberation
Organization terrorists who had
not left Beirut with the large
exodus of terrorists. The mas-
M n occurred after Gemayel's
brother. Bashir. was assassinated
on Sept. 14 at the time he was
President elect.
Furthermore, as Ktienne Saqa.
head of the Phalangist faction
called Guardians of the Cedar,
said in Jerusalem recently, it
came after eight years of Christ-
ians being killed by Palestinians.
Saqa, while refusing to say
whether his group had any
responsibility for the massacre,
said it was "a Lebanese reaction
from the relatives and parents of
our martyrs."
Me noted while Christians were
killed the world "was asleep."
About a year ago Lebanese
Americans sponsored a photo
exhibit in a Senate Office
Building showing the atrocities
committed against Lebanese
Christians in the town of
Damour. The pictures were ,
horrible and tragic but there was
no mention of it in the press. The
assault in Damour itself received
_, little coverage.
spotlight focussed on the mas-
sacre at Shatila and Sabra. One
does not justify the other. But
the atrocities by Palestinians and
their allies have been largely
ignored while the massacre at the
two refugee camps received world
at t ention with much of the blame
being put on Israel
It is understandable that the
I.i I ineee government and the
Sen. Charles Percy
Reagan Administration want to
keep attention away from the
actual killers at the two camps.
To stress that they were Christ-
ians might destroy the efforts of
Gemayel to reconcile Lebanese
Moslems to his government.
Even Druze leader Walid
Jumblat. one of the pro-Pales-
tinian leaders in Lebanon, said
this was not the time to assess
blame, after he was injured by a
car bomb on Dec. 1.
All this may be in everyone's
interest Lebanon, the U.S.,
and even Israel. But what cannot
be tolerated is the effort that is
going on in the Arab world,
including occasionally by Gema-
yel himself, and picked up by
some in the West, especially the
media, to charge Israel with the
PREMIER Menachem Begin
was correct when he said in his
letter to Sen. Alan Cranston (D.,
Calif.) that there has been a
"campaign'' to blame Israel for
the massacre, a campaign which
he called "unbelievable, fantastic
and totally despicable."
The Israeli government, by
establishing the commission of
inquiry, has agreed to accept the
coneequenCM for any errors of
commission or ommission it may
be guilty of in the massacre. The
new Lebanese government,
however, cannot be safeguarded
by refusing to deal with the much
greater crime of its own citizens,
and by allowing Israel to be the

Saturday evening, is not

It is full but not over-
crowded, with people com-
ig and going to cinemas,

tion of most pedestrians

The scene on the Saturday that
Inded Simchat Torah this year
|as enlivened by a procession of
nore than three hundred women
narching with banners, shouting
^ogans and singing. They were
?monstrating to draw attention
the amount of violence
lirected against women. The
lanners read: "Assault is a
trime." "Stop Rape" and "My
fody Belongs to Me."
In years gone by, there would
frobably have been heckling, cat-
alls, jeering suggestions about
if ir "real needs" (and offers to
ilfil them) and probably hostile
hhes about women knowing their
ilarc. But on this occasion the
jrade served to remind the
pt'itators of the unpleasant facts
id most of the opinions ex-
ressed from the sidewalks were
WOMEN'S organizations al-
^ge that more than ten thousand
ases of rape occur each year in
srael. Official figures are lower,
jt it is maintained that this is
ecause many of them go unre-
)rted. The number of battered
(omen is estimated at 100,000,
nd this too is probably less than
he actual figure. The increase in
ill-treatment of infants and
ildren has been so marked that
pveral hospitals now have de-
triments specifically to deal
tit h this problem.
The march concluded the Fifth
Lnnual Congress of Israeli
feminists. The main focus, in one
nd a half days of lectures,
bminars and workshops, was
fiolence, in all it's aspects,
gainst women. Papers were read
the roles assigned to women in
|orld literature, nearly all of
fhich perpetuate the myths of
;ir existence solely in relation
i their male companions.

prominence in the newspapers, of
a child taken by a Rabbincal
court from her mother's care and
put into the custody of a tyran-
nical, neglectful father because of
(unsupported) allegations that
the mother played the radio on
ANOTHER burning topic still
unresolved is that of discrimina-
tory salaries. The principle of
equal pay for equal work is
theoretically accepted by the
Histadruth (Trades Union
Council) here, but in practice
there are enough loopholes in the
law and deviations from it, to
leave most women with 30 per-
cent less take-home pay than men
doing similar jobs.
This subject was blazoned on
one well-filled T-Shirt which gave
those who could read English an
unequivocal message, "Breasts
are important." It read, "With-
out them, employers wouldn't
know whom to give the smaller
pay packet to."
The demonstration started,
appropriately enough, near the
shelter for battered women,
where upwards of 20 women have
taken refuge from violence
against them and their children.
Bruised both mentally and phy-
sically, they stumble in to the
bare, poorly furnished sanctuary,
carrying their babies and drag-
ging their toddlers, weeping, be-
wildered and afraid. So condi-
tioned are conventional (male)
attitudes that they feel guilty for
having provoked the brutality
which has driven them from their
ALL OF them took part in the
protest, holding placards and
torches, perhaps unaware of the
psychological and intellectual
concepts of feminism, but very
much aware that something is
wrong in a society which leaves
them vulnerable and defenseless
in the face of male aggression.
To the pretty young girls look-
ing on, clinging to their escorts'
arms as they watched them go
by, they called out warnings:
"You'll feel his fist when you get
married" and "He'll kick you
when you get pregnant." The
girls looked embarrassed, and the
boys smiled uneasily. "It could
never happen to us," they knew.
Out of the marching ranks one
woman sighed and said, "They
won't listen. I didn't either at
that age, and look at me now."
Many banners and T-shirts
showed the words, "Take back
the night," a reference to the
dangerous streets. Police es-
corted the walkers as they
progressed through the shopping
area. "Squad cars and vans,
walkie-talkies and uniforms,"
sneered one elderly member
whose locket was snatched from
her neck only a week ago, "all for
a peaceable collection of harmless
women. Whom are they protect-
ing? Us? We don't need it when
we are in strength. Where are
they when they are needed, on
the streets at night?"
IN FACT the police looked a
little uncomfortable to be out in
such force, but they hung on
grimly, careful not to respond to
the occasional accusations that
they always supported the at-
tackers in cases of assault. Only
one policewoman was on duty,
and she stayed inside her vehicle.
Apart from the police, at one
stage the only adult male present
walked in the middle of the
parade bearing his small daugh-
ter on his shoulders and holding
his son by the hand. Many men
support the aims of women's
liberation. Very few have the
courage to affirm their beliefs so
Many women, too, are covert
sympathizers of the movement
but are afraid that an open
declaration would lead to trouble
at home.
"I wish I could come and join
you," muttered one of them in
passing, "but my husband would
kill me." Maybe this was just
what it was all about.

the "natural homeland for the

Saudis to request that (King)

man for the Palestinians in
carrying out the Camp David

difficulties with the American
Jewish community but he skims
over many of the reasons for
these difficulties. He only briefly
mentions the resignation of An-
drew Young as Ambassador to
the United Nations declaring
that Young had not violated the
U.S. agreement with Israel when
he met with a PLO official but,
had failed to inform Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance fully of the
Yet the impression that it was
Jewish pressure, not the anger of
Vance, that forced Young's resig-
nation led to a major confronta-
tion between American Jews and
Blacks. Carter allowed this
dispute to fester, either out of ig-
norance or on purpose aa some
claim, resulting in major deterio-
ration in Black-Jewish relations.
This act of ommission, more
than anything else, coupled with
the doubts they already had
about Carter, led many Jews to jei
switch from Carter to Reagan in
the 1980 elections. The vote
against Israel in the UN Security
Council later was only the locking
of a door that had been closed by
the Young incident.
Carter was not anti-Israel but
many saw his policies as threat-
ening the Jewish State. This 1
book confirms some of their
doubts. His book should be read |
because Carter still sees himself
as playing a role in the Middle
East peace process.

Task Force on Missionaries and
QUESTION: In recent
months, the media has been
focusing increasing attention on
The Way International. Please
describe the philosophy and
activities of this group.
Recently, a number of news-
papers around the country have
published investigative reports
on The Way International, a
group that has been character-
ized as a destructive cult. A re-
cent article in Science Digest, for
example, described The Way as
one of the five largest cults in the
United States today.
Critics of The Way allege the
group engages not only in typical
cult practices, but in paramilitary
training as well. Jewish groups
are particularly concerned by The
Way's apparent anti-Semitic be-
While leaders of The Way are
often quoted as declaring that
they are not an ti- any thing,'
there appears to be ample evi-
dence to the contrary. On the re-
quired reading list for an ad-
vanced course for Way members
are two blatantly anti-Semitic
books: The Myth of the Six Ml
lion (Anonymous) and The Hoax
of the Twentieth Century (Arthur
Butz). Furthermore, the founder
of The Way. Dr. Victor Paul
Wierwille. stated in a paid edi-
torial in the St. Mary (Ohio) Eve-
ning Leader, "The myth of the
six million" appears to have been
political and nationalistic. The
propaganda machinery was used
to gain emotional and sympa-
thetic support for their intended
The Way's virulent anti-Semi-
tism is not limited to denials of
the Holocaust, however. A
spokesman at The Way's world
headquarters is quoted by the
Kansas City Star as saying,
"perhaps the people who claim
they are Jews today cannot prove
that through their bloodlines." In
the same article, an ex-Way
member asserts, "Wierwille and
(Way leader) Martindale are ada-
mant about the complete in-
validity of the Jewish faith and
are vehemently anti-Semitic."
Estimates place The Way's
world membership between 30
and 50 thousand. The Way is
structured in the model of a tree,
with the headquarters in New
Knoxville, Ohio called the
"trunk," state affiliates termed
"limbs," and country and sub-
state affiliates known as
"branchen." "Twigs" are small
groups of local followers.
According to an article in The
Advisor, a newsletter on cults
published by the American
Family Foundation, The Way
has affiliates in every state and
major city, and in 62 foreign
countries. Its membership has
multiplied over 100 times in the
last decade.
The group was founded almost
40 years ago by Wierville, who
began to teach the Bible while
pastorine at a local church He
initiated a fundamentalist
Biblical research class called
"Power for Abundant Living"
(PFAL). ostensibly to teach
students how to have a "more
than abundant life" through the
Former members of The Way
report that PFAL courses cost
$100-$200. and follow-up courses
about S20 or $30 apiece, which
they contend brings in a substan-
tial profit for the group. An
article in Westchester Illustrated
quotes The Way Magazine as
telling members, "In case you
don't know it, it doesn't coat $100
for books and materials. You
don't have to tell people that. The
$ 100 is for a commitment on then-
part. What happens to the $100
after they put it down for the
class is none of their business."
Ex-members report that profits
also come from current members
who are asked to contribute 10
percent or more of their income to
The Way.
The IRS and tax authorities
estimate The Way's property as-
sets to be worth over $8 million,
according to The State Journal
Register of Springfield, Illinois.
The Way owns property in at
least seven states, the article re-
ports, including two colleges, a
family ranch, and a camp. Other
assets, as of 1960, include a pub-
lishing company, and a stockpile
of gold and silver valued at $2
Critics of The Way assert the
PFAL courses produce an effect
similar to brainwashing. In an in-
terview with the Loudoun Moni-
tor of Lincoln Virginia, an ex-
member described her PFAL
course: Students were not per-
mitted to take notes during the
ing in tongues at every possible
waking moment.
After completing the PFAL
course, new members are ex-
classes, or to talk to fellow nec\#& to "undershepherd" other
members into The Way. Many
students. Each class lasts several
hours with few breaks. Students
are taught to "speak in tongues,"
which she described as a gib-
berish of sounds, supposedly a
sign that one's body is inhabited
by the divine spirit.

John G. Clark. Harvard Uni-

with the effects of speaking in
tongues. This phenomenon, he
told the Kansas CHy Star, is ac-
companied by a "very spacey
state" which augments the mem-
ber's state of dissociation, al-
ready brought on by lack of sleep
and proper nutrition. This state
makes the member susceptible to
the teaching of The Way.
Other critics claim that speak-

thinking. Former members report
