Tampa Jewish Federation Board Approves $1.2 Million
At the Sept. 27 meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Tampa
Jewish Federation, a goal of $1.2
million for the 1984 Regular
Campaign was formally ap-
"This is a very realistic and
necessary amount for the Tampa
Jewish community to raise in be-
half of the United Jewish Appeal,
Israel and the many local and
national agencies which benefit
from our efforts," stated Michael
L. Levine, Federation president.

have raised $1.1 million in this
community in the past 12 months

"One of the Jewish com-

serving in a very crucial position
in this year's campaign," began
John Osterweil, 1984 Tampa
Jewish Federation Campaign
Chairman. "Maril Jacobs is
serving as Chairman of the
I'm mi ter's Division and has
planned a very thorough effort.
His I'liihusiasm for this under-
taking has spread to all those
associated with him," said
Jacobs commented, "The
importance of this portion of the
198-1 campaign and the need to
raise mure dollars for Israeli and
Tampa Jewish causes weigh
heavily on me. 1 am enthusiastic
because we are approaching this
di\ ision in a creative manner and
those with whom I have
discussed my plans are very
receptive. We will have a good

A native of Tampa, Maril
'Jacobs and his wife Kay, are the
parents of Dede, Valerie and
Kenny, all of whom have been
active in the Jewish community.
He is immediate past vice
president of the Federation and a
former president of the Federa-

Administration Denies
Iraq Supports Terrorism
UTAj The Reagan
Administration has re-
iterated that it does not be-
Jieve that Iraq should be
considered a country that
supports international
terrorism, even though it
harbors one of the most
virulent of the Palestinian
terrorist groups, The Black
June movement headed by
Abu Nidal.
The Administration removed
raq in February, 1982, from the
U. S. government list of countries
which provide support for in-
ternational terrorists. This means
^that under the Export Adminis-
tration Act, Congress will no
"nger have to be notified of any
military-related sales to Iraq.
HOWEVER, ever since the
^ministration's action, there
ve been efforts in Congress to
*tore Iraq to the lkt of

and the Capital Gifts Campaign
(a joint effort conducted by the
Tampa Jewish Federation for the
Jewish Community Center and
Hillel School both the JCC and
Hillel School are recipients of
Federation annual campaign
monies), you can see that we
definitely have the capability to
raise $1.2 million for the 1984
Regular Campaign.
"My confidence is bolstered by
two facts. One is that John
Osterweil has designed a very
well organized campaign which
has input and involvement from a
wide range of individuals. The
other is that we now have a full
tional terrorists. But State
Department deputy spokesman
Alan Romberg said that the
Administration does not consider
there is any "justification to re-
designate" Iraq on this list. He
added that "appropriate"
members of Congress and
Congressional staff have been
advised of the Administration's
"The government of Iraq has
publicly denounced international
terrorism since at least Sep-
tember, 1982," Romberg said.
"Based on the evidence available
to us, we have no reason to
believe that the government of
Iraq has supported acts of in-
ternational terrorism since about
that time."
However, Abu Nidal has con-
tinued to live openly in Baghdad
even though he has claimed res-
ponsibility for terrorist incidents
in Israel and against Jewish sites
in Europe, including the at-
tempted assassination of Shlomo
Argov in 1982, then Israel's
Ambassador to London.
staff at the Federation, including
a campaign director who is
providing excellent professional
guidance in the planning and
execution of the fundraising
efforts," Levine concluded.
In presenting the goal to the
Board, Associate Campaign
Chairman Doug Cohn stressed
that "a large number of indivi-
duals were given the opportunity
to give input for determining the
$1.2 million figure. We all realize
that we must consider increasing
our commitments as a com-
munity and as individuals by at
least 25 percent." He also said
that "on sept. 14, the Campaign
Advisory Committee, including
major donors, current division
chairmen and other current and
past leadership met to determine
a goal to be presented to the
Board." That recommendation
was presented to a leadership
group on Sept. 19 and then to the
Federation Executive Committee
prior to its adoption by the Board
of Directors.
Michael Levine concluded by
commending John Osterweil and
Doug Cohn for "their efforts to
attain a community consensus in
setting the goal" and the Jewish
Federation Board "for assuming
this responsibility for the
Economic Crisis Hits
New Shamir Gov't.
- The Knesset voted 60-53
Monday to approve the new
coalition government
headed by Premier-desig-
nate Yitzhak Shamir. But
the political change was
overshadowed by the eco-
nomic crisis which burst on
the country with the partial
collapse of bank shares and
the sudden new devaluation
by the Knesset of the
Economic factors dominated
the angry debate before the
voting. They were the centerpiece
of Shamir's speech and of the
withering attack on the govern-
ment by Labor Party Chairman
Shimon Peres.
SHAMIR promised "immedi-
ate" firm government action to
slash expenses, prune subsidies
on basic commodities and to fix a
"realistic" rate for the Shekel. He
spoke of "bridling public con-
sumption," implied a tough gov-
ernment stand against wage de-
mands and a more austere life for
most Israelis.
"Our real living standards
have gone up in recent years
beyond the country's abilities,"
Shamir declared. He warned that
demands which "do not jibe with
the national good" will not be en-
tertained. "We shall have to
accept the fact that living stand-
ards will cease to go up for a
certain time ... till we attain a
healthy economy."
He said that "all sectors of the
population" would have to share
the burden of putting the
economy right but promised re-
peatedly that his government
would protect the weakest
sections from the effects of the
envisaged austerity regime.
PERES ACCUSED the outgo-
ing government of "punishing"
hundreds of thousands of "inno-
cent" citizens for their "trust."
He declared that Shamir, as a
senior minister in that govern-
ment, shared with Finance Min-
ister Yoram Aridor and others
the responsibility for the policies
which brought on the present
"tragic situation."
He asked if the Knesset and
the nation could or should have
confidence in the ability of the
same people to conduct a better
policy. "I demand that those men
responsible be replaced," Peres
declared, pointing to the Cabinet
table. He urged "immediate"
elections without a prolonged
campaign period.
Shamir's new coalition is iden-
tical to the outgoing one headed
by Premier Menachem Begin.
Shamir pledged that the "basic
guidelines" of the Begin adminis-
tration would be the foundation
of its successor. But he expressed
hope that talks for a national
unity government embracing the
opposition would be resumed and
said it was his firm intention to
follow up every opportunity to
achieve an all-party coalition.
HE BLAMED Labor for the
failure of the talks and for reject-
ing a proposal whereby divisive
issues would be held in abeyance
under a unity government until
the next scheduled elections in
Shamir opened his speech with
a warm tribute to Begin whose
poor health prevented him from
attending the Knesset session.
There was no word from Begin
aides as to whether he intends to
resign his Knesset seat. The
former Premier has rented a flat
in a Jerusalem suburb and is ex-
pected to vacate the Prime
Minister's residence within a few
Circles close to him said that
he is still suffering from a skin
disorder but is otherwise well
physically and has been main-
taining control of State matters
from his home.

Senate Right To Cut Funds for United Nations
There are those who will call
the action by the United States
Senate to cut the American
contribution to the United
Nations by nearly $500 million
over the next four years an
improvident step.
They, of course, are the people
who believe the United Nations is
truly a deliberative body aimed
at reducing world tensions.
Frankly, I don't believe it.
And, considering the reaction of
many United Nations' delegates
to the remarks of U.S. Ambas-
sador Charles M. Lichenstein, I
tend to agree that funds should
be reduced even more than the
U.S. Senate has proposed.
Actually, the Senate proposal,
which will become part of the
discussion on the budget by
House and Senate conference
members, would trim $78 million
from the S363 million requested
by President Reagan as the
United States contribution to the
United Nations and its affiliated
organizations. In effect, the
proposed cut would return the
U.S. level of contribution to the
1980 level of $285 million.
Additional cuts of 10 percent a
year would be made over the next
three years, a total reduction of
$484 million over the full four-
year period.
It's been pretty clear over the
years that the United States,
while paying the largest share of
upkeep for the United Nations,
has been the leading object for
criticism. Even when some other
nation does something reprehen-
sible like the Soviets wantonly
and brutally killing 269 people
who had the unfortunate luck to
be on Korean Airlines Flight 007
the United States winds up in
the hot seat.
This time, we are being criti-
cized for refusing an Aeroflot
plane carrying Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko
permission to land at a civilian
airport in New York or New
Jersey. It's not as if we were
denying Gromyko entry into the
U.S.; all that was said was that it
would be better if he landed at a
nearby military base.
Apparently, some United Na-
tions delegates believe that is a
crime, an excessive restriction on
Gromyko's travel freedom.
I wonder what would happen if
an American plane tried to land
other than where it was supposed
to in the Soviet Union. Maybe
the Soviets would consider it a
spy plane flying deep into their
air space and would shoot it
Is it any wonder that the
American people resist our
bowing and scraping to the
Soviets? Perhaps the time has
come to call the Soviets that we
not only don't trust them, but we
don't really believe they are
interested in anything but their
goal of world domination.
The danger is that too soon we
will forget the barbaric actions of
the Soviets when they destroyed
an unarmed civilian airliner, and,
in forgetting, imply that we
forgive them. We cannot and
should not do either.

Advanced Weaponry
Claims Public Attention
TEL AVIV (JTA) Advanced weaponry claimed
public attention in Israel last week. A new improved
model of the Israel-made Merkava tank the Mark II -
was unveiled at a public ceremony at Latrun, scene of a
bitter battle during Israel's war for independence. And
Israel Television disclosed that an Israel-manned
American Hawk missile downed a Soviet-built MIG-25
figher over Beirut in August, 1982.
THE ORIGINAL version of the Merkava (Chariot)
tank proved itself in action in Lebanon according to Maj.
Gen. (res.) Israel Tal, the man most responsible for the
design and production of the tank. He said the new model
has a 30-50 percent improved capability over the old. It is
more maneuverable, better protected and more accurate in
its fire power, Tal said.
According to Israel Television, modifications and
special tactics worked out by an Israeli technician
manning the Hawk battery were responsible for the MIG-
25 kill.

Israel's Tough Fighter Joel Arnon To Be Bid Farewell
Joel Arnon is a tough fighter. As Israel's
Consul General in Miami, he has shown
that characteristic time and again. Now
Arnon is terminating his tour of duty.
Five years ago, he
came to Atlanta as
Israel's Consul Gen-
eral in that commu-
nity. A year and a
half ago, after a long
and hard-fought
campaign, which he
waged almost single-
handedly to bring an
Israeli Consulate to
Miami, Arnon moved
here to head the new
consular offices he
was instrumental in
*.ji |
Joel A rnon
There is no doubt that Arnon was its
I personal progenitor, and the consulate is a
source of pride both to him and his achieve-
: ment, as well as to Miami itself, for it
: recognizes the tactical significance of our
community as a center of endeavor in the
cause of Israel's development.
Those who know the consulate in Miami,
and Mr. Arnon himself, also know that he
has been a main sparkplug in its success. It
is his arduous commitment to the consulate
and the long and rigorous work schedule he
has maintained in behalf of his country that
have spelled this success.
Since his arrival in our midst, his service
has had to weather the storms and
anxieties of many crises involving the State
of Israel, not the least of them, the opera-
tion in Lebanon. Under Arnon's direction,
the consulate became a constant source of
information and of interpretation of Israel's
motivation there
This duty, Arnon conceived of as
essentially his own, and he brought to it a
zeal and emotional commitment that in-
spired the deepest admiration for his effort.
He lived through these crises in the heat of
his determination that others should know
the truth about his country and its pur-
To show their admiration for him,
Greater Miami leaders will be hosting a
farewell dinner in his honor next Tuesday.
But whether one is among the select few at
the dinner or another of the countless
South Floridians who have learned to know
and to admire him, all of us wish Mr. Arnon
a tender good-bye and best wishes for his
further achievements in his country's
Test From Within
Only his partisan enemies in Israel wish
new Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir ill.
Surely, the rest of us wish him well. For a
long time now, Western leaders have
secretly longed for the departure of
Menachem Begin, whom they regarded as a
principle stumbling block to peace in the
Middle East.
We are not sure that Shamir will serve
the viewpoint of these leaders to their
satisfaction because his vow remains that
he will hew to the policies of his friend and
predecessor as these policies pertain to the
West Bank and to Lebanon.
If anything then, perhaps for the first
time in the history of Israel, the major
threat to a political leader and to his
government, no less than to Israelis
themselves, does not come so much from
without as from within. In a word, the
major danger facing the new Shamir regime
is the economy.
The Economic Challenge
The original Israeli pound was retired
several years ago in favor of the newly -
minted Shekel in order to deal with the
declining value of the nation's currency and
the prospect of entering upon an era of
fiscal experience reminiscent of post-World
War I Germany, when people went to the
market with wheelbarrows of paper money
to buy a loaf of bread.
Since the pound's retirement, the Shekel
has fared no better. Prime Minister
Shamir's introduction of his new coalition
Monday preceded by hours his decision to
remove government price supports for
food, which instantly skyrocketed by 50
percent, and gasoline, which followed suit
by 25 to 30 percent.
Just as instant was a wave of panic-
buying in the nation's big cities in the wake
of the throngs several days before who
bought up U.S. Dollars as quickly as they
could. The closing of the stockmarket on
Sunday and the precarious position of
many banks, some of them already
teetering on bankruptcy, are all
reminiscent of the American world as
Franklin Delano Roosevelt saw it when he
took office in March, 1932.
Yitzhak Shamir faces similar dilemmas.
They overshadow in staggering proportion
fears about the Israeli role in Lebanon or
the resurgence of Syrian power beefed up
by the latest Soviet supply to President
Assad of missiles capable of striking
targets deep within Israel's territory. These
are dilemmas he will have to solve quickly
or succumb to the pressures upon him
by Opposition leader Shimon Peres to
Will he pull a rabbit out of the Israeli hat
in the same way that FDR appeared to do
in America in 1932? We fervently hope so.

America's New Vietnams
WHEN Richard Nixon first
ran for the presidency in 1968, he
made the usual pragmatic pro-
mises about ending our involve-
ment in Vietnam as soon as he
was elected. For some of us, it
was a replay of Dwight Eisen-
hower's promise in his 1952 race
against Adlai Stevenson to put
an end to the "police action" in
Korea as his first act in office.
But Eisenhower did what he
said he would do. Richard Nixon
dawdled by contrast until almost
the end of his first term. While J
have never been an admirer oJ
Mr. Nixon, in the case of Vietnam
I have always been sure that he
was right in his reluctance to
keep that 1968 campaign
HISTORY HAS since proved
the accuracy of his and other
presidential warnings if we failed
in our commitment in Vietnam.
As early as 1972, Israel's Prime
Minister Golda Meir told me
that, in her opinion, the loss of
Vietnam would result in in-
calculable damage to the free
world, and also to America's
leadership of it.
Reaction to these warnings,
orchestrated on a worldwide scale
by Soviet propagandists, mobil-
ized liberal opinion to demand an
American withdrawal on any
terms possible, however unfavor-
able Into his second term, and
by then deeply enmeshed in
Watergate, Nixon could do little
but succumb to the tide.
Everything that Golda Meir
talked about, then riding high on
the pre-Yom Kippur War golden
age in Israel, in the end turned
out to be correct: in Vietnam, in
Laos, in Cambodia.
BUT MOSTLY, she talked
about Central and Latin
America. These, she predicted,
were the next frontiers to test
Americas mettle, America's
determination to halt the ons-
laught of world revolutions made
in the Soviet Union.
All of this is pertinent today
because of the reassessment of
Vietnam in a 13-part serialized
study currently on public televi-
sion. It is a reassessment in name
only. So far, the score is the
same. Whatever runs or touch-
downs the other side may or may

I FIND the compulsion these
days to talk about Vietnam fas-
cinating especially when it is
a substitute for talking about
Central America and the Middle
East, that is to say, about an
American military role in El
Salvador or Lebanon.
The very same forces that
engineered the betrayal of our
principles in Southeast Asia are
once again hard at work
engineering the same outcome in
these arenas. Of particular
concern is our involvement in
Lebanon because of the
diminished Israeli role there at
this time.
Should we sustain a national
disaster in Lebanon, there will be
the inevitable freaks to do more
than merely hail the victory of
"liberationist" revolution; they
will be able to blame Israel for it
at the same time, and there will
be no one to gainsay them. There
will be no one to correct the
record and declare that American
involvement in Lebanon
escalated when American foreign

SHOULD WE be mired down
in Lebanon, it will be for this very
reason and none other, and as we
fail in our attempts to resist the
blandishments of the anti-
Vietnam talkers who today
quarrel with the presence of U.S.
Marines in Beirut, odds are we
won't mind too much when the
Israelis get the mudpies for it.
It is predictable that there will
be a new Lebanese Le Due Tho
somewhere on the horizon who
will agree to a lovely future for
that country. We will sign in
the same way that the Amin
Gemayel government signed with
Israel last May. And that Hosni
Mubarak affirmed Anwar
Sadat's signature at Camp David
in 1979.
Then we will leave, and
Moscow will come marching
home to victory again, tra-la, tra-
OF COURSE, the Central
American scenario is more com-
plicated. There were the French
in Vietnam before us. There were
the Israelis in Lebanon before us.
But there is no "civilizational
burden" we must pick up. say, in
El Salvador; there are no pre-
decessor saviors in Central
America. There, the decision to
become involved is entirely our
own. How will we excuse our
success there or our failure?
It is a difficult row to hoe in a
world of such incredible trea-
cheries and absurdities today
the row that can lead us away
from the frank feeling that all of
these treacheries and absurdities
are deliberately programmed.
And away from the persistent
feeling that somehow the
Russkies always win, and we al-
ways lose. Worse, that we always
help them in their triumphs.

The ever-popular, always sold-

AJCong. Wants Court to Press
Treasury for Investment Info
The American Jewish Con-
gress has asked the
Supreme Court to intervene
in its two-year battle to
compel the Treasury
Department to reveal the
extent of Arab dollar hold-
ings in the United States.
The Jewish organization has
filed a petition with the high
court asking it to review lower
court rulings that have held the
government has a right to bar
disclosure of American holdings
of individual Arab states.
is justified in withholding the
data on the grounds that dis-
closure would harm national
security, although the Interna-
tional Imestment Survey Act of
1976 requires the Treasury to
collect and publish data about
foreign investment in the United
States. AJCongress says the
national security issue is merely a
pretext for hiding the extent of
Arab financial power and in-
fluence in this country.
The decision to petition the
Supreme Court to hear the case
was announced by Joel Levy, a
prominent Washington attorney
and vice president of AJCon-
gress, who argued the case in the
lower courts.
The suit against the Treasury
Department was brought by the*
Jewish organization in the U.S.
District Court for the Distrkt of
Columbia after the Adminis-
tration rejected a request for data
on Arab dollar holdings sub-
mitted by AJCongress under the
Freedom of Information Act.
IN A 1982 dttision. Wash

Judge Harrington Parker ruled
ihul Treasury was not required to
divulge the information. He
agreed, however, that AJCon-
gress wus probably correct in^
churging that the OPEC
countries were being given
"special preferential treatment."
I le also appeared to agree with
the AJCongress contention that
national security was not in-
volved, contrary to the Treasury
Department claim. Hut he held,
nevertheless, that because the
Constitution gives a 'special
role" to the executive branch on
matters concerning "foreign

situation who wants to get the
most out of life.

For this initial program, Sukkahs were erected
at the Goldsmith home in Temple Terrace and the

Families in both neighborhoods were invited to
celebrate Sukkot in their respective areas. Each
family brought fruits and greens, and parents and

program was designed to give Schaarai Zedek's
Religious School students and their parents an
opportunity to meet, associate, and celebrate with
other Jewish families in their geographical area.
