(JTA) President Yitzhak
Navon of Israel said last
week that he had warned
President Reagan at their
White House meeting that
Egypt's refusal to expand
peaceful relations with
Israel threatened chances
for broadening the Middle
East peace process.
"If this is the moaei, u cms is
what happens to peace, what sort
of encouragement is that for the
peace process?" Navon said in
answer to questions at a National
Press Club luncheon. "What sort
of contribution does it give to the
will for peace, the will for sacri-
fice, the will for giving up
NOTING THAT Israel has
given up Sinai, two air bases and
its oilfields and forcibly removed
settlements for the sake of peace
with Egypt, Navon said that
Egypt has "frozen" its agree-
ments with Israel. He said not
only does Egypt criticize Israel,
but the Egyptian press is full of
anti-Semitic articles and car-
In addition, he accused Egypt
of discouraging President Amin
Gemayel of Lebanon from
reaching a peace agreement with
Israel when it should be en-
couraging another Arab country
to have peace with the Jewish
Navon stressed that he
believed the late President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt was a
"courageous leader" who moved
for peace with Israel, not for
Israel's sake but because he
believed that instead of war,
Egypt needed to concentrate on
improving its economy. He said
he has met three times with
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt and believes Mubarak
wants peace for the same reasons.
Navon said he was optimistic
that the Egyptian-Israeli peace
could succeed and that would
"lead to additional peace steps."
NAVON, who refused to
answer political questions, said
he also warned Reagan that two
statements in his Sept. 1 peace
initiative could go against the
consensus in Israel. He said that
while Ragan opposed a Pales-
tinian state, his other proposals
could lead to one. In addition,
Navon said, Reagan's statement
about more Israeli withdrawals
for more peace could be inter-
preted as total withdrawal for
total peace, but no Israeli sup-
ports withdrawal to the 1967
The Israeli President denied
that settlements on the West
Bank are an obstacle to peace. He
said that while there is contro-
versy in Israel over where to
place the settlements, there is no
controversy over Israel's right to
establish them. He said it was
"absurd" to claim that there is
any place in the Holy Land where
no Jews can live.
With respect to King Hussein
of Jordan joining the autonomy
talks, Navon said Hussein could
make a contribution if he came as
an independent spokesman
representing his own people. But
if he comes as a surrogate for the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization, the pre-conditions for his
participation would create diffi-

ADL Report_____
Anti-Semitic Vandalism Took Drop in '82
After more than doubling
for three years in a row,
anti-Semitic vandalism in
the United States declined
noticeably in 1982, accord-
ing to the annual audit con-
ducted by the Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rfch.
The survey disclosed 829 re-
ported incidents this year in 36
states and the District of Colum-
bia as compared to 974 in 31
states and the District in 1981
a drop of 14.9 percent.
In making the findings public,
Nathan Perlmutter, ADL's na-
tional director, noted that the
number of arrests in connection
with the anti-Semitic episodes in-
creased nearly 50 percent from
114 in 1981 to 167 in 1982. Of
those arrested, he said, more than
80 percent were under the age of
THE ATTACKS included the
defacement of Jewish institu-
tions, stores, homes and public
property with swastikas, anti-
Jewish slogans and graffiti. Of
the 829 total, there were 14 cases
of arson or attempted arson as
against 16 in 1981, and three
bombings as against four last
The audit was prepared by the
Research Department of ADL's
Civil Rights Division based on
information provided by the
ADL's 27 regional offices in this
country. It attributed the decline
in vandalism, arson and bomb-
ings to a nuclear of factors, in-
Exposure of the facts about
anti-Semitic vandalism and other
anti-Jewish activity, leading to
public awareness of the problem;
The enactment of laws in
several states against religiously
motivated vandalism;
Stricter law enforcement in
problem areas;
Security conferences
many sponsored by ADL in
cooperation with law enforcement
authorities, educators and reli-
gious leaders which have led to
increased police and civilian
Educational programs in the
schools that have focused on the
evils of bigotry and prejudice.
THE AUDIT also revealed
that while there was an increase
in the number of harassment*
against individual Jews or their
institutions 693 as against 350
recorded for 1981 the rate of
increase was lower. In 1982, the
rate of increase was 69 percent
higher than the previous year.
The 350 recorded in 1981, how-
ever, was 212.5 percent higher
than the 1980 total of 112.
In assessing the results of the
report, Perlmutter warned that
"the downturn in vandalism,
welcome though it is, should be
*ept in perspective. Hundreds of
anti-Semitic episodes sadly sug-
gest that any relaxation of
vigilance or of prosecution of of-
fenders would be premature."
He went on to point out that
while anti-Semitic vandalism was
declining in the United States,
there was a "disturbing increase"
in anti-Jewish violence in West-
ern Europe which resulted in the
deaths of six persons and the
wounding of 216 others in 1982.
survey made public in October
there were 41 episodes of terror-
ism including bombings and
shootings in six West Euro-
pean countries in 1982 compared
to 15 such terrorist attacks
against Jews and Jewish in-
stitutions in 1981. The overseas
audit was conducted by ADL's
European office headquarters in

Sixteen-year-old Michelle Fishman, daughter of Sam and
Eppie Fishman, is one busy and involved young girl, and we'd
like to tell you all about it. Michelle, a junior at Plant High
School, has been elected first Vice-President of the Florida Re-
gion of B'nai B'rith Girls. She was elected at the recent conven-
tion held in Eustis, Florida. This one year term will require her

aid them in different ways, especially in the area of membership.
Michelle is also an officer in Tampa's Earnest Maas BBG group.
In addition, she is a member of Kiwanettes, a service organiza-

pate in the "High School in Israel" program. She will earn high
school credits while attending school and living for two months
in a small city north of Tel Aviv. Also, the group will frequently
travel throughout Israel, holding classes wherever they may be.
Michelle looks forward to enjoying this marvelous program with
some of the friends she has met over the vears, through BBG
and her summers spent at Camp Coleman. Michelle's older sis-
ter, Jennifer, participated in this fantastic program in Israel, a
couple of years ago. Perhaps Michelle's brother, Jeffrey, who
just celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. will be participating in the
same experience as his sisters, in the near future. Well Michelle,

With only about four months left,
organizers of the American
Gathering of the Jewish
Holocaust Survivors are
predicting that the largest as-
semblage ever in the United
States of Jewish survivors of re-
sistance to Nazism will take place
in the nation's capital from April
11-14, It will include a series of
events and ceremonies marking
the 40th anniversary of the
Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943
and other ghetto uprisings.
The recently opened Washing-
ton Convention Center will be
converted into a "Survivors'
Village," according to Benjamin
Meed, president of the American
Gathering, and it is expected that
computers will help some 10,000
participants reunite with
thousands of survivors now re-
siding in the United States and
Canada. Many of them have been
considered "lost", "dead," or
"missing." After World War II
individual Anglicizing of names
and marriage name changes
created a break in communica-
tions linkage with many families
and friends who survived Nazi
camps, g net toes, and fighting in
Eastern European forests.
Resistance to Nazism, accord-
ing to Sam E. Bloch, senior vice
president of the American
Gathering, took many forms in
occupied Europe.
In the ghettoes there were, he
said, illegal schools, prayer
houses, presses, couriers, hospit-
als and other institutions for-
bidden by Nazi occupation forces.
In concentration camps there
were uprisings, work refusals and
harassment tactics employed by
the prisoners.

Premier Tapek Aziz of Iraq
said here that his govern-

and the Palestinians" and
that Iraq wants to see Syria
withdraw its forces from
Lebanon "so as not to give
Israel a pretext to maintain
its forces there."

with Le Monde last Friday came
a few days after the Iraqi govern-
ment made public a conversation
President Saddam Hussein had
with U.S. Rep. Stephen Solarz
the Iraqi leader was quoted as
having linked his call for the
security of Israel with a demand
for the creation of a Palestinian
state. Hussein said he believed in
the "existence of an independent
Palestinian state accepted by the
Palestinians and it is also neces-
seray to have a state of security
for the Israelis."
IRAQ HAS long been one of
Israel's most implaccable foes
and diplomats could not recall
any previous such statements by
Iraqi leaders. There was no
explanation why Iraq decided to
release the text of the conversa-
tion at this time.
In his interview with Le
Monde, Aziz also called for
Egypt's "unconditional" rein-
tegration into the Arab world. He
said "we must reestablish a
dialogue with Egypt. There are
no conditions as far as we are
The Iraqi Vice Premier, who
conferred with President Fran-
cois Mitterrand, Premier Pierre
Mauroy and half a dozen French
ministers during his three-day
stay here last week, reportedly
negotiated an extension of Iraq's
debt repayments to France.
Baghdad owes France close to $2
billion for various arms pur-
chases in 1981 and 1982.
Aziz also obtained additional
credits for future arms sales.
Baghdad, according to reports, is
counting on France to modernize
and to re-equip its armed forces.
It plans to acquire a large
number of Mirage-2000 combat
planes as well as French-made
missiles, gun boats and electronic
equipment. Some sources say the
new arms deal is for close to S3
According to French sources,
Aziz did not raise, more than in a
perfunctory way, the issue of the
nuclear reactor in Tamuz
destroyed by Israel in June, 1981.
While here, Aziz had an un-
scheduled meeting with Egyptian
Minister of State for Foreign Af-
fairs Boutros Ghali. It was the
first such encounter between an
Iraqi and Egyptian minister
since 1979, when Iraq, as well as
most of Arab states, severed
diplomatic relations with Egypt
in retaliation for President
Anwar Sadat's historic visit to
Jerusalem and his subsequent
signing of a peace treaty with
Three other Arab states
Jordan. Morocco and Lebanon
have also renewed their contacts
with Egypt since Hosni Muba-
rak's election as President.
Mubarak also attended the
funeral of Saudi Arabia's King
Khaled in Riyadh last summer.
Reagan Sends Habib
Back to Middle East
To Break Deadlock
(JTA) President Reagan
said last week that he is
sending his special Middle
East envoy, Philip Habib,
back to the region in an
effort to break the deadlock
in the negotiations between
Israel and Lebanon. Habib
was summoned to Wash-
ington from his vacation in
Although the Reagan Admin-
istration it reportedly concerned
about the lack of progiess in the
talks. Reagan did not indicate
this feeling in his nationally-tele-
vised press conference. "It is not
unexpected to us," he said. "We
would have liked to have had this
whole thing move faster. But in
view of the situation, not only in
Lebanon but the whole Middle
East, we never had any illusion
that this could be done over-
HE ADDED that the negotia-
tions that are now going on "will
lead to the removal of the foreign
forces." Israel and Lebanon have
not been able to agree on the
agenda for the negotiations be-
cause Israel wants to discuss
some sort of normalization of re-
lations agreement while Lebanon
wants to concentrate on the re-
moval of the Israeli troops from
its territory. Lebanon will also
have to open negotiations with
Syria and with the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization for the
removal of their fc
Reagan said that it was a
"tragedy" that fighting was
going on in Tripoli. The fighting
is between pro and anti-Syrian
groups. Reagan noted that the
fighting is another reason "why
we want the outside forces out, so
that the new government of Leb-
anon can begin to keep order it-
self and establish its sovereign-
Gesture Of Agony
Wiesel Turns on Jacobo Timerman
Eli Wiesel, probably the
world's most widely-read
Jewish novelist, essayist
and commentator, has had
some disquieting experien-
ces in recent months.
In an interview on Miami
Beach. Wiesel revealed that he
had been in Israel when the inva-
sion of Lebanon occurred. While
he had some reservations about
the implications of the war,
Wiesel has been scandalized by
some of the reactions to it,
notably that of Jacobo Timer-
man, the former editor of a news-
paper in Buenos Aires who was
arrested by the Argentine
authorities and who is now living
in Israel.
"I WAS one of those people
who went to Argentina to plead
with the authorities there to re-
lease Timerman," Wiesel said.
"It was because of the interven-
tion of Israel and its offer to
accept Timerman that he was
finally able to leave his jail cell."
Wiesel feels that Timerman's
new book on Israel, "The Long-
est War, Israel in Lebanon"
(Knopf), is unsavory. It is in-
tended as an expose of Israel's
"unwarranted" invasion of Leb-
anon published in advance of
the findings of the judicial com-
mission of inquiry.
His recent appearances on
American television notably
the CBS "60 Minutes" program,
where his unrelenting criticism of
Israel prompted Mike Wallace to
ask. "But is there nothing posi-
tive about Israel?" brought
more of the unsavory in him. He
displays both a lack of grateful-
ness and a certain "shallowness"
in his thinking.
WIESEL IS exercised not only
by Timerman's statements about
the "wickedness" of Israel but
about his assertions of longtime
Zionist and Jewish commitment.
"That's not the impression I got
when I was in Argentina trying
to secure Timerman's release,"
Wiesel stated.
"Members of the Jewish com-
munity there asked me why I was
wasting my time on a person who
had never displayed any Jewish
"When Timerman occupied his
position as editor of one of
Buenos Aires' best newspapers,
he had no time for the Jewish
people or for Israel that's what
I was told by Argentinian Jews."
Elie Wiesel
(Timerman does say in his book,
"Prisoner Without a Name, Cell
Without a Number," that he
wrote about Israel in his paper;
he does not provide details about
the extent of his coverage.)
If Wiesel has had second
thoughts about Timerman, he
has gone through a similar pro-
cess with regard to his own recent
response to the Beirut massacres.
In the wake of the Shatila and
Sabra murders, Wiesel had rush-
ed into print with some strong
articles about the moral lapses of
certain Jews.
"I WENT so far as to suggest
that this calamitous event meant
that we had failed as a people,
that there was something wrong
with our educational system. I
said that the time had come for a
Heshbon Ha-nefesh, a reckoning
with our souls. I could not under-
stand how such a monstrous
thing had transpired."
When the reaction of the
world's press began to filter
through Wiesel's consciousness,
he soon realized that he had been
precipitous in his reaction. The
orgy of condemnation which was
visited upon Israel was too much
for Wiesel. "The condemnation
was not inspired by a sincere
search for truth but by a hidden
agenda, to wipe clean the Holo-
caust slate. The world seemed to
be saying to us: 'Now that you
too have been involved in human
brutality, however indirect, we
can now close the chapter on the
Holocaust.' The relish that ac-
companied the world condemna-
tion of Israel was transparent."
Israel during the war, he is not
prepared to offer analysis of the
political or military aspects of tbj j
conflict. "I am not a political]
person and am therefore unable'
to comment on whether tht'
invasion was justifiable or not
When it comes to matters of
security, I do not presume to tea
the people on the scene what a i
appropriate or not."
Wiesel was, however, ready to'
make some observations on the
war as he witnessed it from hit j
"The first inkling I had t
something was wrong was w
heard a radio announcer say:!
Katavenu me Beirut moser, (our
correspondent from Beirut re-
ports ."). The media coverage]
of the fighting was unprecedent- ]
ed. Hour after hour, Israeli TV j
crews filled the screens not onlj|
with shots of the fighting but]
with programs featuring debate, (
among soldiers about the moral- <
ity of the war all this occurring
while the fighting was going on!
"My general impression is that]
this was a war, the first one in Is-
rael, that was waged without a
general consensus. I felt a cor-|
porate sense of sadness. The peo-1
pie were split, and you could feel
it clearly "
WHILE WIESEL is hesitant I
to comment on the moral issued
the war itself, he is not reticent to
speak to specific aspects of itt
"I was horrified when, during!
the bombing of Beirut, organized
'missions' and tours went to the,
city to view the spectacle. Hen*
was a city in the process of being
mutilated; people were dying,
and tour buses were bringing
people to gawk."
A Midrash from Exodus cam*,
to Wiesel's mind to emphasize"
the point: "When the Egyptian!
are drowning in the Sea, and you
sing songs of rejoicing."
WIESEL'S moral position isi.
simple one. "I do believe in the"
double standard when it comes to
I srael. I am not embarrassed by
it. I believe that the State of Is-
rael should be better than other
states. What is Israel's purpose if
it is only to become another
Levantine entity?"
That is the message Wiesel
communicates to the students a
Yale (where he recently received
the Henry Luce Chair in Hu-
manities) and Boston University,
as well as to the thousands of
peoples he lectures to annually.

still needed by The Mary Walker

Rodriguez, Manager of the
Jewish Towers and Mary Walker
"Often a resident who doesn't
feel well needs the help of a
wheelchair to get from their
apartment to the car. Sometimes
a resident who uses a wheelchair
needs a temporary replacement
while theirs is being repaired."
said Rodriguez.
A piano in the recreation room,
sound system for large gather-
ings and game equipment for
weekly recreation are self ex-
planatory. The management feels
that there are people in the com-
munity who have these items
around who are no longer using
them who could make many
people happy by sharing with the
Mary Walker Apartments.

equipment to the Mary Walter

Do not forget that donations of food or money are very
desperately needed by the Jewish Community Food Bank.
Donations may be left at any Tampa synagogue or at the Jewish

ongoing project and your continual contributions are vital.

accepted Israel's right to exist,
Navon replied that he does not
accept the premise. He said the
right to exist "we got from the
Almighty God. I don't need the
permission from the PLO that I
have the right to exist."
He noted that the PLO
covenant calls for the destruction
of Israel. If they would change
that clause, the questioner would
then have to "ask the (Israeli)
Ambassador what will happen"
because it is the Ambassador, not

Asked about his own future,
Navon said he would make an
announcement in Israel in
February. He said he had three
choices: to seek a second term as
President from the Knesset; to
return to politics; or to retire into
private life to write the many
books he has planned.
ON ANOTHER issue, Navon
denied that Israel's soul had
changed during the "Peace for
Galilee" operation. He said
Israel's high moral calibre could
not be shown on television as was
the destruction caused by war.
Navon, a Sephardic Jew, said
he believed the differences
between Israel's Sephardic and
Ashkenazic population would
disappear over the next 30 years,
principally because of inter-
marriage, education and the
When a reporter proposed a

between Israel, Syria and Leba-
non as a way to promote peace,
"a sort of slalom for shalom,"
Navon replied, "If you promise
me snow, I go."
In an interview with ABC-TV
"Good Morning America" pro-
gram, Navon said the U.S. could
encourage President Amin
Gemayel of Lebanon to resist
Arab pressure and agree to
peaceful co-existence with Israel.
"I wish the United States would
encourage him to the extent they
find feasible. Navon said.
HE NOTED that Israel seeks
two objectives in its talks with
Lebanon: security arrangement
and some form of "civilian co-
existence." He said Israel had
already dropped demands for a
peace treaty.
But we want to know that we
are living with that neighbor
peacefully and there should be
some way of co-existence."
However, Navon added, "There
are elements in the Arab world
who do not encourage Gemayel to
have these relations."

Analysts Agree
Hussein Will Join Peace Talks
The possibility that
King Hussein of Jordan
will soon make a move to
join the Middle East peace
talks is gaming ground
among some Israeli
government analysts. They
expect he will do so on the
basis of support for Presi-
dent Reagan's initiative,
announced last Sept. 1, and
on condition that Israel
freezes settlement activity
on the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, as Reagan has urged.
The analysts seem to be in
agreement with William Quandt
of the Brookings Institution, who
predicted in a lecture in Tel Aviv
that Hussein would shortly
announce his intention to join the
peace process. Quandt was the
National Security Council's
Mideast expert in the Carter
received further support from
Sen. Paul Tsongas (D., Mass.),
who is currently visiting the
region. He told reporters at
Kibbutz Akifim that "specifi-
cally, a decision has been made
(by Jordan) to negotiate as soon
as the environment is correct."
Tsongas said he was informed
of this in conversations with top
Egyptian leaders in Cairo last
week. The "most important part"
of the "correct environment" is
the situation in Lebanon, ac-
cording to Tsongas who went to
Amman for talks with Hussein
and Crown Prince Hassan and
returned to Israel last Friday for
a meeting with Premier Men-
achem Begin.
According to Israeli analysts,

hours with President Rea-

last week, including a 45-
minute lunch, but ap-
parently only dealt with
generalities rather than the
hard issues dividing Israel
and the United States.
"Your presence here as Presi-
dent of Israel symbolizes the
close ties that have always linked
our two nations," Reagan said in
a departure statement, standing
under an awning that shielded
them from the rain that fell on
the White House south lawn in
front of them.
"Ours is a friendship that has
deepened over time," Reagan
continued. "It is daily expressed
in our unswerving commitment
to the security and well-being of
the State of Israel."
directly mention his Sept. 1 peace
initiative, which has been
rejected by Premier Menachem
Begin, he noted that "the
security of Israel is inescapably
connected with peace in the Mid-
dle East."
Navon, in his reply, stressed
that whether Israelis accept "the
American view" as the "basis"
for Mideast peace negotiations or
find it "impossible to accept"
these views, "none of them have

American commitment to peace
and the security of Israel. He said
Israelis were grateful both to
Reagan personally and to the
American people for what they
have done for Israel.

had stressed issues on which
there was a "consensus" in Israel
such as that Jerusalem remain
undivided and that there be no
Palestinian state. Other consen-
sus views mentioned by Navon
were the desire for close relations
with the United States and the
belief that Israel is a strong pro-

House again before Begin's visit
which is now scheduled for the
third week of February. Begin
was to have met with Reagan last
November but was forced to
cancel because of the death of his
wife, Aliza.
Quandt, who met with Hussein
before coming to Israel, said the
King would seek to obtain max-
imum support from other Arab
leaders before entering the peace
talks. He also said he was more
optimistic over the prospects of
the talks getting under way than
pan-Arab pressures, as the late
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
had done in 1977. According to
Shamir, in terms of hopes for
peace, an Arab "mandate" or a
PLO "mandate" was "an
Shamir claimed that over the
years, Hussein's position over
territorial compromise, in secret
contacts with Israelis, was
always "not an inch." The
Foreign Minister implied
strongly that this was also
Israel's position. Israel has "no
need for such slogans," he told
his audience of Orthodox youth.
"We say Eretz Israel (land of
Israel), and I don't have to tell
you in Bnei Akiva what that
means," he declared to wild ap-
