Discussing one of the central
issues of the conference, Irving
M. Levine, director of IPGI and
one of the conference partici-
pants, said: "This notion of
pluralism is very complicated. It
is based on a realistic view of
what this country is about. Our
country is not only'about indivi-
dualism. One of the essential in-
gredients in the way this country
was formed was by cohesive
groups creating a community."
"WE MUST get away from
this concept of extreme indivi-
dualism," continued Levine,
"and understand the concept of
personal identity as the indivi-
dual within the core of the com-
munity. We must realize that
group identity is as important as
individual identity. You cannot
be a healthy personality unless
you can recoup your tradition
your racial, ethnic, communal
tradition and integrate all that
into your personality. You must
know about your background and
be ready to use it honestly,
without shame.

former director of the Select
Commission on Immigration and
Refugee Policy, maintained that
"we are living in a time of grow-
ing xenophobia," adding:
"At least for the next few years
we are going to hear people talk
against immigrants and refugees
somewhat more than they did in
the seventies. One of the reasons
is that our economic situation is
difficult and uncertain for many
people. There is a mistaken idea
that immigrants are simply
mouths to feed, that they take
something from the U.S.
"THERE IS a feeling that the
economic pie is fixed: there are
only so many jobs, and immi-
grants take away jobs from
Americans. It is not realistic or
accurate, but it is there. That is
why. particularly among the un-
employed or among those who
are entry level workers, there is
the most skepticism and most
hostility toward immigration.
There is not a sufficient apprecia-
tion of the strengths that immi-
grants bring to this country
not only culturally but in terms
of their spirit. They bring much

KUGLER SAID that the prin-
cipal organizei of the Apr. 19
Warsaw event was a post-World
War I organization known as
BOW ID Association of Fight-
ers for Freedom and Democracy
and that Mieczyslav Moczar,
chairman of its central council,
and Vlodzimierz Sokorski. presi-
dent of its board, were both lead-
ers during 1968-69 of a special
political faction of the Polish
Communist party which bears
Moc/.ar's name that engaged in
wide-spread anti-Semitic propa-
ganda activities.
BOWID, itself. Kugler
charged, was notorious after
World War I for anti-Semitic in-
citements, and during World War
11 its members aided and abetted
the Nazi occupiers by hunting for
Jews in the forests.
"The incongruity of this whole
affair is that Sokorski joined the
Moczar faction in 1968 and, as a
journalist, was director of the
Polish government's Committee
of Radio and TV. During this
period, as perhaps none other in
Poland's otherwise sordid anti-
Semitic history, anti-Semitic pro-
paganda, often using texts lifted
from the Nazi publication Der
Sturmer, reached all-time highs.

homes. The Jewish family, the
foundation of our strength, is
being seriously undermined.
Elsewhere across the globe
pressures mount against the
Jewish people. Anatoly

modern Jewish exodus con-
tinues to pit his individual
human courage against the cruel-
ty of the Soviet Union. Anti-
Semitism in Europe has shown
an alarming growth, taking with
it precious Jewish lives. In
Ethiopia, South America, the
Arab lands, Jews look to us to
help maintain their courage.
Our accomplishments in the
past year have been great. But so
lontr as Jewish individuals in any
place in the world suffer degrada-
tion, hopelessness or fear, our
tusk is not fulfilled. As Jewish
leaders in the tradition of Moses,
we must continue struggling to
make our people free.

Jews Have Never Forgotten Passover Tale of Freedom
Passover, whose celebration will be
observed with the coming of the first seder
on Monday evening, is essentially a holiday
rooted in the theme of human freedom.
Perhaps this is why the story of the Exodus
is so compelling not only for Jews but for
other peoples throughout the world.
But it is a sad fact that those who enjoy
freedom most are least likely to be taken by
the dream of it. The dream is nurtured
mainly in the hearts of people whose
longing for freedom thrives on the want of
This is only human nature: we take for
granted all our gifts and cherish as desires
only those gifts we do not have.
Passover, as we see it, is unique as an
exception to this very human charac-
teristic. While it may be true that Jews,
throughout their history, have enjoyed
precious little freedom, on the contrary
mainly suffering enslavement in one form
or other, it is also sail tary moments in the
ancient Jewish Kxper ence in which Jews
have thrived until thi- very day, both
inside and outside of h rael, as a free and
respected civilization
But whatever their status, they have
never forgotten the Exodus. In good times
and in bad, they have made sure to recount
the story of the Exodus from Egypt to their
children. The Passover celebration is
precisely about that, generations of a
family, and strangers among them, sit at
the table laden with fine food and drink,
and they sing and retell the story of the
flight from Egypt until, as it is written, the
time lor the early morning Shema has come
to interrupt them and bring an end to the
What is more. Judaism, which is far
more metaphysical than other western
religions, is as a consequence largely non-
symbolic. But at Passover, we celebrate the
Exodus surrounded by so many symbols
that help us "experience"" the agony of the
Jewish slave experience in Egypt and enjoy
the happiness of the moment of the Jewish
flight to freedom.
Perhaps it is for these very reasons,
even in this generation of our freedom both
in Israel and abroad, that Jews especially
savor the Passover celebration and the
story of the Exodus. But in the end, no real
reasons are in fact needed to explain how
and why it is that the Exodus has become
so central to our religious and spiritual
lives throughout the year, not only on
Explanations are beside the point. The
compelling force brings us to the seder each
year. And so, too, on Monday at sunset.
Dr. Kronish Honors Us
Our community is especially blessed by
so many spiritual leaders whose works in
the cause of Jewish affairs are not only felt
among us but even nationally and abroad.
Among them is Dr. Leon Kronish, of
Temple Beth Sholom on Miami Beach. The
Kabbi has just been presented with the
Israel Bond Organization's Freedom Medal
lor his "dedicated service to the economic
development of Israel."
We are not surprised. Dr. Kronish has
been active in Israel Bonds since its in-

Our Moderate Saudi Allies
Friday. March 25. 1963
Volume 5
EVERYONE from the sanc-
timonious Caspar Weinberger to
the Bible-thumping bore, Jimmy
Carter, is lecturing the universe
these days about evil Israel.
Weinberger has been trying to
start a war with the Israelis ever
since he blew into a John Wayne
spectacular the confrontation be-
tween a lone Marine Corps officer
and a lone Israeli tank com-
mander somewhere in the jungle
of Beirut.
Carter, for his part, is trying to
give meaning to his life by reliv-
ing the Camp David era of 1978-
79. and he is playing the role of
Jehovah by lecturing the errant
children of Israel for straying
from the Word as he now says he
enunciated it then.
ON THE other hand, what
with all of this revisionism going
on. there are the moderate
Saudis, to whom the Washington
duplicity corps nightly prays
that they will not reduce their oil
production from nine to five mil-
lion barrels daily. We know of
their moderation because the
Saudis offered their own
moderate Middle East peace plan
a couple of years back in the form
of the moderate Fahd pronun
ciamento, which would
turned Israel to its 1948 r
give an inch or two of boundary
line here or there.
Talk about moderation. Still,
that is how the lecturers and the
preachers about the sins of Israel
view the Saudis these day>
But just how moderate

Saudis on their loving course of
us. President Iteagan last year
engineered our AW ACS sale to
them an arrangement that for
the first time encouraged frank
anti-Semitic rancor on Capitol
Hill and elsewhere across the
nation sparked by an Adminis-
tration campaign demanding a
choice between "Reagan and
and created a poisonous anti-
Jewish atmosphere here into the
bargain, the Saudis have since
expressed their gratitude by
systematically thwarting U S
policy abroad. For example.
Saudi Arabia took the lead in
isolating Egypt following the
lalilishment of peace between Is-
rael and Lebanon and even
managed to make a travesty of
the most basic efforts at nor-
malization between those two
countries even though a de facto
sense of normalization has
existed for sometime now, a sense
preceding the start of the June,
1982 war.
ONE WOULD think that,
from these things alone, there
would have been a reevaluationof
feeling toward the Saudis by
Iteagan Administration officials
who are so fond of reevaluating
U.S.Israeli relations at the drop
of a hut.
But no. that is not in the same
ball park with the Saudis at all
For their intransigence, wt have
punished the Saudis this way:
The U.S. reconfirmed its sale to
Riyadh of a fleet of F15 fighter
jets. And, of course, of the
AWACS. Sales that all of the
Iteagan men assured us would
guarantee the Saudis' friendship

I recently finished an excellent
book entitled, "An Orphan in
History." It was written by Paul
Cowan, the son of one time Presi-
dent of CBS, Lou Cowan, and the
grandson of Modie Spiegal,
founder of the mail order house
which bears his name.
Paul Cowan grew up in a sani-
tized, assimilated and secularized
Jewish enviornment. Although
descended from Rabbinical stock,
Paul had not even heard the "Ha-
Motzi" prayer recited until he
was in his 30s. He knew nothing
of where he came from and his
sense of rootlessness made him
feel like an "orphan in history."
In his book, Mr. Cowan traces
the rediscovery of his family tree
and Jewish past, and his evolu-
tion into an observant and active
member of the Jewish Com-
munity. As the jacketliner note
indicates, now "Paul Cowan
knows not only where he is from,
but where he is going."
As his daughter approaches
Mat Mitzvah age Paul Cowan
begins to worry. He wonders
whether his children will follow
the path that he has rediscovered
or whether they, too, will become
"orphans in history."
As he watches his daughter
confidently chant her Haftorah
anil deliver her D'var Torah, his
doubt vanishes. He sees that the
rituals he and his wife have
adopted and the values they live
l>\. have given her a sense of
pride and rootodlMM that he
m'ver knew as a child. He knows
I hnl far from being disconnected

niDlcdness and purpose.

tory and impress upon them the

The Best
of Games
HBlel School
Despite a rainy evening, Mon-
day, March 7, more than 60
adults and children managed to
arrive at the Beth Israel Building
in time for a Spaghetti Dinner
and an evening of games and
prizes sponsored by Hillel School.
The dinner was organized by
Aaron Tractenberg, a loyal
games volunteer worker. Present
that night were former members
of Beth Israel Synagogue and
Hillel School parent volunteers
and their families. These very
special unpaid workers were
honored for their year-round
service to Hillel School. Through
their efforts monies have been
raised for the school.

Remember your humble begin-
nings and how we rose above
them. Never forget that we were
strangers in Egypt and that we
were not treated with common
human decency. Therefore love
the stranger and treat him with
honor and respect."
Paul Cowan never celebrated
the Passover as a child. He never
sat by his grandfather's or
father's side and heard the
majestic story of the Exodus, or
recited the four questions of
sange "Dayeinu." He never
dipped the parsley in salt water
or ate the Hillel sandwich. Per-
haps if he had, he would not have
felt himself as much of an "or-

the past and reaffirm for our-
selves the beauty, majesty and

opportunity to go to waste. Let

Israel Will Share War Secrets Information With U.S.
le tense Minister Moshe
[rens disclosed that Israel
ad decided to provide the
,S. with information
bout war materials ob-
iined in the Lebanon war
without demanding any-
thing concrete in return.
The decision, by the Cabi-
net, was disclosed by Arens
at a specially-convened
press conference here. He
did not reveal the nature of
the information.
Gen. Herzog to be Israel's
New President Starting May 5
JERUSALEM Chaim Herzog will be Israel's next
'resident. He will take office on May 5, succeeding
'resident Yitzhak Navon, who refused to run for a second
erm, and has stepped down.
HERZOG IS legislator of the Labor Party. He beat
hit Supreme Court Justice Menachem Elon on Tuesday
by 61 57. Elon is a member of Prime Minister Menachem
"egin's ruling coalition.
The 65-year-old Herzog is the son of Israel's former
phief Rabbi Isaac Herzog. He served with the British
irmy during World War II. During Israel's 1948 War of
Independence, he assumed a command post in the battle
lor Latrun.
AFTER THE war, Herzog became Chief of Military
[ntelligence, serving from 1948-1950. Later, he was a
lilitary attache, 1950-54, in the Israeli Embassy in
Washington; Commanding Officer of the Jerusalem
district, 1954-57; and he assumed the post of Chief of
btal'f of the Southern Command, 1957-59, when for a
second time he was named to head up Military
HERZOG THEN RETIRED from the army and
|rom 1962-67, he became director of the industrial en-
erprises of Britain's Sir Isaac Wolfson. But when the Six-
)ay War broke out in June, 1967, Herzog accepted the job
)f official military commentator for Kol Yisrael.
Herzog-s latest triumph comes as a result of Navon's
decision no longer to serve in the presidency, which is
[largely a ceremonial post without political powers. But
I Navon contributed to politicizing the office more than any
i his precedessors.
Cabinet Decision Leaked to Press
|Thr Cabinet decided secretly to
[convert eight military encamp-
ments on the West Bank into
I'ivilian settlements. The deci-
sion, leaked to the press, was
taken at a time when the United
IStall's and other countries have
[been urging a freeze on settle-
ments on the West Bank as a
step toward bringing Jordan into
negotiations for a broad peace
settlement in the Middle East. A

initiative announced last Sept. 1.
One of the planned new settle-
ments, called Bracha. is situated
on peak of Mt. Grizim, over-
looking Nablus. the largest Arab
city on the West Bank. The deci-
sion confirmed earlier reports
that the government intends to
build a Jewish city adjacent to
Nablus, similar to Kiryat Arba
overlooking Hebron.
Former Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon was reported to have been
in the opposing minority at the
Cabinet meeting. Sharon had op-
posed providing the Americans
with intelligence information
without guarantees that it would
not be passed on through other
channels to the Arabs.
ARENS SAID that his predec-
essor. Sharon, had invited U.S.
Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger in October, 1982 to join
with Israel in studying the les-
sons of the Lebanon fighting. An
American delegation came to Is-
rael last November and initialled
an agreement.
"As some time has elapsed,
and misunderstandings have
arisen, we have decided to study
the lessons under existing agree-
ments," Arens said.
"The first American delega-
tion, from the U.S. Air Force, will
arrive in Israel at the beginning
of April, and the process of
studying the lessons will thus
Arens added that "Israel is
certain that its interests will be
honored and that care will be
taken that the information does
not pass into foreign hands,
without consultations with us,

HE SAID he was convinced
the information would be of value
to the U.S. and would help
strengthen the relations between
the two countries.
Observers here said that one
reason for the change in former
policy may have been the knowl-
edge that information might be
leaked to the Americans anyway,
and Israel would gain no moral or
political advantages from snaring
it officially. Observers say that
Israel now hopes to gain good
will in the U.S. for providing the
information without any quid pro

PARIS (JTA) Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson told a
Jewish delegation Thursday that
he was "adamantly opposed" to
holding an United Nations-
sponsored conference on Pales-
tine in Paris but there was little
he could do to prevent it.

said France was not consulted

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
F"dy, March 2Si
leading Methodist scholar and
author asserted that the Holo-
caust, while a cataclysm in the
history of the Jewish people, also
"remains a massive event in the
life and death of Christians."
"When the Christians under-
stand the meaning of the Holo-
caust and what it reveals of the
spiritual condition of Christian-
dom, they will mourn it more
than the Jews," the scholar, Dr.
Franklin I.itull, professor of
religion at Temple University
and corresponding member of the
Institute of Contemporary Jewry
at the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, said.
His comments were made to
more than 2,000 people who
attended the firs*, public dialogue
on the "Origins of the Holocaust:
Christian-Jewish Relations in
Historical and Contemporary
Perspective," sponsored by the
Holocaust Survivors Memorial
Foundation, at Avery Fisher
The dialogue, moderated by
NBC-TV News diplomatic
correspondent Marvin Kalb. also
featured Prof. Yehuda Bauer of
the Hebrew University; Prof.
Raul Hilberg of the University of
Vermont; and Prof. Krister Sten-
dahl of the Harvard University
Divinity School.
Littell contended that there
exists a "credibility crisis"
within the church and the educa-
tional system. He pointed out
that the Holocaust was "planned,
supervised and rationalized" by
men and women who supported
the Nazi ideology and who had
graduated from the university
systems of Europe. He noted that
the notorious Dr. Joseph Men
gele. known as the "angel of
death" for his experimentations
on Jewish inmates in Auschwitz,
possessed two doctorates and
was educated in "the greatest
universities of the world."
Referring to what he termed a
"credibility crisis of
Christianity," Littell said that
"six million Jews were
murdered in the heart of Chris-
tendom by baptized Christians."
Noting that these Christians
were never excommunicated nor
rebuked by the church, he
declared: "Adolph Hitler died a
church tax-paying Roman Catho-
lic to the end."
Littell, the author of 20 books
and 275 major articles and a
member of the U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Council, said the Holo-
caust "must never be idle conver-
sation. It must never be enter-
tainment. If must be in the
context of saving lives." He
added: "We must speak the truth
that we know and the lessons to
be drawn from it."
Stendahl, who is the Andrew
Mellon Professor of Divinity at
the Harvard Divinity School
where he teaches the New Testa-
ment and the arts of preaching
and worship, said it would be
"simplistic to blime Christianity
pure and simple" for the Holo-
caust. But he added that it would
"be naive to deny that Christian-
ity has a strong streak of anti-
Stendahl observed that there
were two Christian reactions to
the Holocaust: "humble excuse"
and a feeling of "guilt." Elabora-
ting on the "guilt feeling" theme,
he said Christian theologians and
preachers "are accustomed to"
solving problems by applying
this feeling or, as he put it,
"technique." so that "it always
feels good to feel guilty."
Referring to the "humble ex-
cuse," Stendahl said this is the
argument that Christianity is
"perfect, full of love, goodness"
and that when things turn for the
worse, individual Christians are
said to have gone astray on their
ideals of Christianity.
According to Stendahl, some
western support for the estab-
lishment of the State of Israel
following World War II was a
result of this "guilt feeling." But
had the Jewish State been estab-
lished on the basis that it was
right, he continued, Israel would
have wider support internation-
ally than it has today. Referring
to the plight of Israel in the inter
national community, Stendahl
declared: "Don't put your trust
in guilt."
Bauer pointed out that the
reasons for World War II went
beyond strategic and political
issues, but focused more on Nazi
ideology. "They (the Germans)
chose war ... for ideological
reasons," he declared. This
ideology included the desire of
the German people to rule Europe
and the world, and to do this the
extermination of the Jewish
people was seen as a necessary
element in this process, Bauer
Hilberg, a professor of political
science at the University of Ver-
mont, and author of several
books and numerous articles on
ghettos, concentration camps
and the psychology of Nazism,
asserted that the destruction of
European Jewry by the Nazis
was not an all-out encompassing
plan at the outset. He said the
policy of the Nazis first centered
on the forced emigration of Jews
and then advanced to the stage of
the complete destruction of a
people and their culture.
Questioned by Kalb as to the
possibility of a reoccurrence of
the Holocaust, not one of the
panelists would say unequivocal-
ly that it could not happen again.
Hilberg noted that he was not a
betting man, while Bauer ex-
pressed a lack of faith in con-
fidence-setting trends but said
people must watch early warning
signs similar to those which led
to the rise of Nazism. He in-
dicated that pluralism was a
central element in maintaining
just societies.
Stendahl was more the op-
timist, saying that the new
generation can provide positive
steps for the future. While the
Holocaust will be remembered
with precision and hopefully with
enough detial, he said, "I think

Reagan Pledges
To Reverse Downward Emigre Trend
President Reagan pledg-
ed, in a personal message to
the third World Conference
on Soviet Jewry, that the
United States "will lead"
efforts by the free world "to
stem and reverse the trends
of plummeting emigratior
and increasing harassment
which plague Soviet Jews."
His message was delivered by
Jeane Kirkpatrick. the U.S.
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions, at the opening of the con-
ference here, attended by 3,000
Jewish and non-Jewish delegates
from 31 countries. Kirkpatrick
head the American delegation as
Reagan's personal emissary.
HE STATED in his message
that "Durable progress in East-
West relations cannot be
achieved without concurrent pro-
gress in human rights."' Addres-
sing Jews in the Soviet Union.
the President declared: "Know
that we will not forget them. We
will firmly support their just
The opening session was presi-
ded over by Simone Veil of Fran-
ce, former President of the
Parliament of Europe and a
former member of the French
Cabinet. Veil said:
"I am moved by honor to at-
tend a conference which point"
to our brothers and sisters still
plagued by anti-Semitism which
we hoped would end with the
establishment of the State of Is-
rael We cannot agree that
any state has the right to sep-
arate families or hold men and
women against their will. The So-
viet Jews are living under un-
bearable tyrannical rule."
VEIL CITED the sharp drop
in Soviet Jewish emigration
which is one of the main concerns
of the conference. Only 206 Jews
left the USSR in January and
February, 1983, the lowest
number ever recorded, she said.

trap." Veil states. "They have no
place in the Soviet Union but as a
result of their desire to go to
Israel they are labelled traitors."
Veil also referred to the
'prisoners of Zion" who carry on
in physical and psychological
isolation from the rest of the
world. "Some collapse under the
constant strain of daily haras-
sment and give in but some are
not prepared to give in and since
they do not, we cannot abandon
them. No one can be deaf or silent
to their pleas and hardships," she
She urged everyone, including
international organizations, trade
unions, Jews and non-Jews to
show their solidarity to protect
human dignity. "Everywhere in
the world people of different races
and religious beliefs are discri-
minated against," Veil said. "Let
us denounce this situation and
ask that all Jews be able to cir-
cumsize their sons, that all Chris-
tians be able to baptize their chil-
dren without harassment. Let us
denounce all infringements of hu-
man rights."
address with praise for the demo-
cratic values Israel displayed
during its inquiry into the Beirut
refugee camps massacre. "The
proof of these values is unprece-
dented in history. Israel raised
herself high today. Let us pay
homage to the spiritual and
ethical values found in Israel
today. Let us stand up against all
that stands against this country.
Let us strengthen the desire to
unite voices and to continue in
the struggle for freedom in the
world." Veil said.
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jeru-
salem said the gathering here of
people from all over the world
was an indication of Jewish
unity. "There are few situations
which can unite so many peoples
the subject of human freedom
is such a unifying topic." he said.
"It is clear, after looking at this
hall, the Jews still have many
friends in the world."
Kollek also noted the im-
portance and significance of
holding the conference in Jerusa-
lem. The two previous world
conferences for Soviet Jews were
held in Brussels. "It is appro-
priate that this conference is
being held in Jerusalem, our
united capital." he said.
Thatcher of Britain sent a
message to the conference
pledging that Britain, together
with other Western governments
will "continue resolutely to press
the Russians for an improvement
in their human rights record and
to subject that record to the most
demanding public scrutiny."
Kirkpatrick observed the
symbolic significance of the
conference held "on the eve of
Passover, the commemoration of
the first exodus." She proclaimed
that "the struggle for Soviet
Jews to liberate themselves from
bondage burns with special
brightness that cannot be extin-
guished as long as there are peo-
ple with courage and dignity and
a desire for freedom that cannot
be denied."
Kirkpatrick reviewed the
clauses of the 1975 Helsinki Final
Act which the Soviet Union
signed, that stress that "the
parties are to expedite and facili-
tate the reunion of families and
that those applying for exit visas
should not be deprived of their
sympathy and pride for the
"prisoners of Zion" who "are
among the heroes of the Soviet
Jewry struggle. Their cause is
our cause, their ideals our ideals.
They shall not be forgotten. They
are not alone." she said.

Saudi intransigence are not
enough, then examine President
Reagan's piece initiative. The
State Department offered it on
Sept. 1, 1982 with the under-
standing that both the Saudis
and Jordan, moderates all, would
back the plan a plan they had
been consulted with in the first
place and which it seemed a fore-
gone conclusion they would
After all, the Reagan plan calls
for Israel's withdrawal from most
of the territories occupied in the
1967 war; there would be a freeze
on settlements on the West Bank
and in Gaza; and, in return, the
Arabs would have to accept the
reality of Israel.
IN ESSENCE, this means that
neither Israel nor the Arabs
would get their maximum de-
mand, thus humiliating neither
side no Israeli sovereignty
over the West Bank and no new
Palestinian state.
And so what did America's
Saudi buddies do in response?
The proposed Reagan emascula-
tion of Israel was not enough
for them. At the Arab conference
in Fez, Morocco of Sept. 9, 1982,
just eight days after the an-
nouncement of the Reagan initia-
tive, the conference, inspired by
the Saudis, did the following:
It concluded with a declaration
calling for Israeli withdrawal
from "all Arab territories occu-
pied in 1967, including Arab al-
Quds (Jerusalem)," the dis-
mantling of Israeli settlements
and the "establishment of an in-
dependent Palestinian state."
Jerusalem would be its capital.
Furthermore, the declaration
reaffirmed the PLO as the sole
representative of the Palestin-
ians. This virtually assured Jor-
danian rejection of the Saudi-
backed alternative to the Reagan
initiative, which Jordan also
rejects if for other reasons.
THE RESULT of this Saudi
maneuvering, at a time when the
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan
was still preoccupying the Rea-
gan Administration, was a dan-
gerous vacuum of inaction into
which Moscow has since been
pulled as a Middle East presence
to be reckoned with after all of
these years of having lost even so
much as a toehold there.
One would think that the
Saudis would oppose this if only
on the basis that its ancient,
decrepit monarchy is absolutely
anathema to Soviet thought
processes. But Saudi animosity

April Is Tay Sachs Month
Education and awareness are
the goals of this year's Tay-Sachs
Program sponsored by National
Council of Jewish Women,
Tampa Section in conjunction
with the University of South
Florida Genetics Program. The
joint program is now entering its
sixth year.
Tay-Sachs is a genetically in-
herited fatal disease that attacks
young children and causes des-
truction of the nervous system.
Several such genetic or inherited
diseases are carried by those of
Jewish ancestry. Some of these
disorders, particularly common
to Jews, go back into the early
history of the Jewish people.
Some are of more recent origin.
Tay-Sachs was first indentified
less than one hundred years ago.
Infants with Tay-Sachs look
and behave normally at birth.
Normal development continues
for several months: then, sud-
denly at about six months
muscular weakness becomes
evident. Physical and mental de-
terioration rapidly follow. Death
usually occurs between the ages
of three and five.
Today only uninformed
couples need suffer the anguish of
learning that a seemingly healthy
child is doomed because of Tay
Sachs. The Tay Sachs Program is
designed to prevent this tragic
genetic disease by detecting car-
ries of the disease by means of a
simple blood test. Since 1978 over
509 people have been tested. Ref-
errals are increasing from indivi-
duals and physicians due to our
educational program of supply-

AIPAC Official Takes Out After Weinberger
Continued from Page 1
Iht- President's mind, Rosen
fcharged at the press conference
vhich was called to discuss
lIPAC's new pamphlet, "Israel
and the U.S. Air Force."
The pamphlet argues that Is-
rael, not any of the Arab coun-
tries, is the best site for American
air bases, particularly to provide
refueling and maintenance of
J.S. planes protecting the Mid-
Idle East and the Persian Gulf.
IThe pamphlet is a follow-up to
(one issued by AIPAC last year
(called "The Strategic Value of Is-
Rosen's press conference was
| held coinciden tally at just about
the time the Defense Department
was releasing a letter from Gen.
I Robert Barrow, the Commandant
<>f the U.S. Marine Corps, to
[Weinberger, charging that Israeli
troops are deliberately threaten-
ing the lives of American military
personnel in Lebanon for "po-
litical purposes" and urging that
"firm and strong action" be
taken by the U.S. to end the con-
[ frontations.
Rosen asserted that there is no
I official in the Administration at a
\ high level with a sympathetic
view toward Israel since the de-
partures last year of Secretary of
State Alexander Haig and Na-
tional Security Adviser Richard
THE AIPAC official said the
only "good things" that have
emerged recently are such items
as foreign aid which is directed
by Congress. He claimed that
even the Administration's op-
position to attempts to expel Is-
rael from the United Nations was
due to the mandate by Congress.
Rosen said the only weapons
shipped to Israel in recent
months have been 11 F-15 jets
and 200 Sidewinder missiles. He
said the Administration has held
up since last May official
notification to Congress of the
sale of 75 F-16 jets even though
they, like the F-15s, were
promised to Israel in 1978 as a re-
sult of the weapons the U.S. sold
to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and
As for Weinberger's policy
toward the Arabs, it is "come
pick what you want, and it's
yours," Rosen said. He said it
was "not clear what the Arabs
wanted that he (Weinberger)
turned down."
Rosen said AIPAC is speaking
out because there has been an
"obsession" over the last two
years over what Israel has done
to strain relations with the U.S.,
but little has been mentioned
about what Weinberger has done
to strain relations with Israel. He
contended that Weinberger does
not know the importance of Israel
to U.S. security and has thus
harmed American security.

Rosen stressed that there was
an ignorance of Israel's strategic
value in the Defense Department
because the Pentagon has not
studied it. He said that before
1979, the Pentagon concentrated
on Europe and the Far East. But
with the fall of the Shah of Iran
and the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan, large numbers of
military men were sent to the
Middle East to study the situa-
tion there.
He said this resulted in a
"search for ways to cooperate
closely with the Arabs" because
there was a need to obtain
"access arrangements" for bases
in Arab countries. "A concept
evolved very sensitive to the
strategic value of a number of
Arab countries and surprisingly
insensitive to the strategic value
of Israel to the U.S.," Rosen said.
He charged that Defense Depart-
ment officials are even warned
against studying the strategic
value of Israel.
Rosen noted that Weinberger
had blocked the agreement upon
which Israel would supply the
U.S. with information that it
learned about Soviet weapons as
a result of the war in Lebanon as
it had done after previous wars.
He said the Secretary did not un-
derstand the complicated and
long procedure needed to analyze
these weapons.
THE AIPAC official also
charged that Weinberger was re-
sopnsible for the position being
taken by some that Israel's des-
truction of Soviet-built Syrian
missiles in Lebanon benefitted
the USSR because the Russians
would now improve their missile
defenses. He said the Israelis
could now take out the SAM-5
missiles that the Soviets have in-
stalled in Syria. But the difficulty
there is diplomatic, since the mis-
siles are manned by Soviet tech-
nicians, he said.
Several hours after the con-
ference, AIPAC issued a state-
ment through its spokesperson,
Lisa Behren, that "any personal

remarks" about Weinberger were
"solely" that of Rosen's.
She said that AICPAC's well-
known differences with the Ad-
ministration are that it believes
that "Israel is of strategic im-
portance to the U.S., and current
U.S. policy does not take advan-
tage of that fact. It will be false
to characterize this difference of
opinion as personal criticism of
the motives of the Secretary of
Defense. Our concern remains
what it has always been
policy, not personality."

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Why Is This Month Of March
From All Other Months?
Because it's the end
of the year.
The Jewish Agency's fiscal year in Israel. When
our cash collection total counts the most.
If that total comes up short, programs for the
next budget year beginning April 1 could
be cut back.
That means people cut off. People who depend
on us.
Pioneers on pre-settlements in Israel's North
- waiting for new families to join them in bring-
ing new life to hillsides finally free of terror...
Sinai settlers withdrawn for the sake of peace -
waiting for the housing, the roads, the green-
houses they must have to build new lives in the
Disadvantaged teenagers needing guidance and
direction waiting to fill hundreds of empty
places in Youth Aliyah residential schools...
The proud and willing elderly, seeking useful,
dignified employment in their final years wait-
ing for sheltered workshop doors to open to
They could be waiting in vain... unless there
is an outpouring of cash from our campaigns.
Now. And all through this month of March.
