rhich completes the
part musical series,
that has traveled
the USA and
Canada. It is a six man Jewish
musical group that has been at
the forefront of the renaissance in
Jewish musk since their begin-
ning in 1974.
The group's musical style
ranges from folk like ballads to
rock 'n roll, from dixieland to
melodies and other popular pre-
ferences. Their musical pieces
bring a bit of Israel, so to speak,
right here into America.
The sound of Safam is a unique
one. The group utilizes four
strong vocal performers, in-
cluding two cantors, and an
assortment of instruments such
as the electric guitar, piano,
accordian, flute, syntheaner,
bass and drums.
Aa impressive as the sound of
Safam is on record and tape, their
energy and enthusiasm can beet
be experienced in concert. Tickets
for the one night show are avail-
able at the Jewish Community
Center or the Tampa Theater Box
Office. All seats are reserved and
prices are $10 for adults, $8 for
senior citizens and students and
only $6 for children 13 and under.
intended to go there last
October as the first stop on
a swing through the Middle
East. But Menachem
Begin's illness and his
resignation as Premier
made it necessary for Kohl
to postpone his visit to the
Jewish State.
In the meantime, relations
between the two countries
deteriorated. After years of
hesitating to deliver arms to
"areas of tension." West Ger-
many has embarked on a selling
spree to Arab countries. Ger-
many wants to sell sophisticated
military hardware long sought by
Israel's enemies. The lure of the
petrodollar is. after all, too great
to pass up.
THERE IS a change going on
in Germany. Official policy is
moving away from the "special
relationship" to Israel that was
an outgrowth of the past. In the
wake of a new approach to war
and peace, and as a matter of self-
assertion, the past might be
forgotten. Germany wants to be
free to deal with the Middle East
conflict in its own way.
When Kohl visited Arab
countries last October, he went in
search of orders for military
hardware. When he returned, not
much was said publicly about the
success or failure of his quest.
But soon after, high-ranking
delegations from Arab countries
came here to look at the material
Germany had to offer, and a few
weeks ago it was officially
confirmed in the Bundestag that
Bonn will sell arms to Saudi
Arabia in the near future.
The man who confirmed this
was Deputy Foriegn Minister
Juergen Moellemann. In his
"private" life he is the president
of the German-Arab Society.
Some time ago he accepted this
"honor" with the approval for
Foreign Minister liana-Dietrich
Genscher. "I am a politician who
is especially interested in the
problems of the Arab region,*'
Moellemann explained.
ACTUALLY, he is the head of
a powerful pro-Arab lobby which
has infiltrated the German
government and is hard at work
to change public opinion about
the Arabs and Israel.
There is nothing new about a
lobby representing the Arab
cause. What makes the German-
Arab Society so special is that
officials participating in for-
mulating the nation's policies
are, at the same time, active
participants in the Society's
lobbying efforts.
After it was founded in 1965,
the German-Arab Society was
fairly inactive. This changed with
the Arab oil embargo follwoing
the Yom Kippur War, with the
spread of petrodollars and with
the changed political climate in
he Middle East.
Presently, the Society is the
center of Arab propaganda in
Germany. Its influence has
grown in spite of the fact that it
does not have more than 750
members. Included in the
membership are 200 powerful
corporations. prominent
politicians and civil service
bureaucrats. The Arabs supply
the money, if necessary, to keep
the machinery of the organization
running smoothly.
IT IS NO secret that the Arab
League and several Arab em-

bassies support the Society. This
organization is, an article in the
Frankfurter AUegemeine Zeitung
it recently called it. "a faithful
partner of the Arabs."
During the war in Lebanon, the
Society gained national publicity
when it obtained the names of
150 German politicians, scien-
tists, theologians and journalists
on a petition demanding that
Israel unconditionally get out of
Lebanon. The Society is also
active in trying to open markets
for German industry in Arab
countries and cement German-
Arab political bonds.
Since 1980, Arab lobbyists in
Germany have tried to persuade
policymakers to sell arms to
Arabs. At that time, the British
newspaper, Observer, reported
about Germany'8 negotiations
with Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iraq
and Syria. It disclosed the vital
role a German company by the
name of Magirus-Deutz played in
the Yom Kippur War.
THIS COMPANY devised a
method to breach the for-
tifications and barriers erected on
the Israeli side of the Suez Canal.
It manufactured a water cannon
which was delivered to Egypt one
week before the outbreak of the
war. The firm's engineers
supervised the training of
Egyptians in the use of the water
cannon. Parenthetically, it is
interesting to note that Magirus-
Deutz refused to do business with
Israel is very well aware of the
turn in German policy, despite
efforts by politicians such as
Moellemann to minimize the
seriousness of the situation. He
told the Parliament recently that
the sale of military hardware to
Saudi Arabia will not affect
Israel's security. Other pro-Arab
apologists, in what has become a
game of terminology, seek to
distinguish between "offensive"
and "defensive" weapons. Israel
has rejected this distinction
without a difference.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir in-
structed Deputy Foreign
Minister Yehuda Ben-Meir to
summon the German
Ambassador and to deliver a stiff
complaint about the intended
arms sale to Arab contries. Kohl
will have a lot of explaining to do

arms sale is not new. Last
August, Begin told German
officials that Germany has no
moral right to sell arms to Arabs.
At that time, it was reported that
Saudi Arabia wanted to buy 300
German Leopard tanks which
rate as about the best in the
world and which would give
Saudi Arabia a definite
technological advantage over
Israeli armor.
Meanwhile. Saudi Arabia
started some adroit maneuvering
behind the scenes. If they cannot
buy the tanks outright, they
might as well buy the company
that manufactures the tanks. The
Saudis have sought to acquire 24
percent of the shares of Rw
metall A.G. Such an acqu^
would give them a formidaS
voice in company affairs, a Jl
over sales, and a poht^

Tell About WallenbergKirkpatrick
Jeane Kirkpatrick, American
Ambassador to the United
Nations, has called on the Soviet
Union to provide information on
the fate of Raoul Wallenberg, a
Swedish diplomat who saved the
lives of nearly 100,000 Hungarian
Jews from Nazi death camps in
World War II.
Kirkpatrick made the appeal
last week at a ceremony in New
York marking the 39th anniver-
sary of Wallenberg's arrest by
Soviet forces in Budapest. The
event was sponsored by the
Raoul Wallenberg Committee of
the United States in affiliation
with the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith. The Com-
mittee believes that Wallenberg,
now 71. is alive in a Soviet prison
despite statements by the Soviet
Union that he died in 1947.
Kirkpatrick declared that
Wallenberg was not arrested by
"accident" because the Russians
"knew full well who he was and
what he was doing." The real
Soviet attitude toward the
Swedish diplomat, Kirkptnck
said, was demonstrated in
Budapest in 1948, four yean
after his arrest, when a statue
honoring Wallenberg waa
removed from Budapest "be-
cause he stood for freedom."
The envoy read a statement
issued by Secretary of State
George Shultz in which he
declared that the Kremlin has i
"moral obligation to put to rest,
once and for all, the questions
that continue to arise about
Raoul Wallenberg .. We call on
the Soviet government to provide
a full accounting of the fate of
Raoul Wallenberg."
The Secretary of State, speak
ing at the Stockholm East-West
Conference on Security in
Europe, noted reports from
survivors of Soviet prison camps
that the Swede is still alive in
camp or prison. Congress made
him an honorary U.S. citizen in

30rh Anniversary Gala
Israel Philharmonic
On Bay Area Radio
The Israeli Philharmonic
Orchestra may now be heard
every Tuesday at noon on
WXCR-FM92 radio. The per-
formances broadcast were taped
live at the Fredric R. Mann
Auditorium in Tel Aviv.
On Feb. 7 the Israeli Phil-
harmonic Orchestra will be joined
by the Tel Aviv Philharmonic
Choir and the Zamir Chorales of
New York and Boston in the
presentation of "Aida" by Verdi.
This will be aired in two
segments with Part II on Feb. 14.
The Israel Philharmonic
Orchestra was officially founded
in 1936 by the eminent violinist,
Bronislaw Huberman, whose
desire was to bring to the Middle
East the universal language of
music in the form of a full
symphony orchestra. The first
concert took place in a make-shift
hall in Tel Aviv on Dec. 26, 1936.
In this newly-assembled or-
chestra were some of Europe's
finest musicians, Jewish players
who had fled Nazi oppression in
Europe. Arturo Toscanini came
to conduct the opening concerts.
His appearance had the dual
purpose of serving as a voice of
protest against Fascism and as a
voice of encouragement to the
Though only in existence for 48
years, a short period when
compared to the venerable
histories of European and
American orchestraa, the IPO
has maintained the standards
and activities of an in-
ternationally-recognized sym-
phonic body ever since its in-
ception. Its home, Israel, is
perhaps one of the smallest
countries with an orchestra of
this standing and yet is a country
which has not experienced one
day of peace since its re-
establishment in 1948. Against
this continuous background of
turmoil and insecurity, the
Orchestra has functioned
uninterruptedly throughout the
Arab riots of 1939; World War
II; the Arab attacks which
resulted in the 1948-49 War of
Independence; The Sinai
Campaign; The Six Day War;
and the Yom Kippur War.
The IPO's first tour took place
two weeks after it presented its
first concerts in Tel Aviv. This
tour, under Toscanini's baton,
took the Orchestra to Egypt.
Bronislaw Huberman had envi-
sioned the Orchestra as a mobile
unit that would bring its music to
all the Middle East. For that
reason, its first concert was in
Since then, the Arab countries
have not permitted such a
cultural exchange to take place,
but it remains the Orchestra's
hope that the time is not far off
when its music will once again be
welcome in Egypt and in all the
Arab countries.

Likud Beats Rap
Economic Chaos Shaking Coalition
The government coali-
tion has defeated three op-
position non -confidence
motions on the economy by
a vote of 62-56. There was
one abstention. Likud also
this week weathered a call
for early elections.
The vote followed eight hours
of tense deuate during which
Labor Party Chairman Shimon
Peres charged that the Likud
government had mismanaged the
economy for seven years result-
ing in a doubling of the poor, an
increase in the national debt from
30 billion to three trillion Shekels
and an annual inflation rate that
rose from 30 percent to over 190
percent in 1983.
Cohen-Orgad. replying for the
government, conceded that the
economy is in trouble. "But this
is because we tried to provide
services to support everyone." he
said. He maintained that social
benefits should have been
restricted to the truly needy

had only just reached an
agreement with the Tami Party
committing the government to
increased welfare expenditures at
a time of drastic budget-cutting.
The negotiations with Tami,
going on for days, ended just
before the Knesset voted, the
small coalition partner which
controls the Labor and Welfare
Ministry had threatened to with-
hold its support for the govern-
ment unless the Treasury ac-

as a
work with the Central Intellig-
ence Agency. Barbie visited
several American cities, traveling
freely on his Bolivian passport
which he acquired after settling
there under the assumed name of
Klaus Altmann.
The Justice Department of-
ficial complained that probes,
such as the one of Barbie, "takes
time out of our main job here of
going after Nazi war criminals
that live in this country." The
Barbie undertaking proved "very
disruptive to the OSI's mission."
he added.
\t the same time, the official
acknowledged that the OSI "was
the most likely candidate to do
the job' of investigating the new
case of Robert Jean Verbelen.
The feeling was also expressed
that "we ought to be able to get
the Verbelen case out of the way
pretty quickly."
disagreed Said a staffer on the
House Committee that oversees
the OSI: "This could get to be a
habit. I agree that intrusions like
the Barbie and Verbelen things
slow them down over there. They
are not equipped for such random
forays. Perhaps we should do
something here from the Hill.
Besides, the Kxecutive (branch
agencies) can be counted on to
cut corners. We need a full hang-
out, not a modified one on this
(war criminal I question."
Actually, the hard yet very few
facts at hand on Verbelen tend to
support this Congressional critic.
They are thus far contained in the
92 pages of documents declas-
sified heavily deleted and
excised on October 4. 1968 in
response to a Freedom of
Information Act (FOIAl request
on Verbelen from the Anti-
Defamation league of B'nai
On Dec. 21. the ADI. released a
press statement noting that the
Verbelen case followed by four
months the Justice Department's
confirmation that Barbie, known
as the "butcher of Lyon." was
employed by American author-
ities including the CIC. after
being given the death penalty by
a French court for sending
thousands to their deaths in Nazi
concentration camps.
FROM THE documents ob
tained under the FOIA. the con-
sistent and basic facts about
Verbelen can be summarized
Verbelen is Flemish, born April
5. 1911 in Belgium. As a youth he
was active in the fascist group
Dervlag (The Flag). He served
with the Germans 1940-1945 as
an SS Obersturmfuehrer (1st
Lieutenant! and later in the SD.
He was a member of the NSDAP
(Nazi Party) in its AO (Ausland
Organization) for full-fledged
Nazi Party members who were
citizens of countries outside of
the Third Reich.
He fled with his Nazi masters
in 1944 hack to Germany. He was
"last seen in Berlin" at war's end.

the CIC gave him two montk,

Even though the CIC offered
Verbelen assistance in gettim
out of Europe, he declined, wem
to work for the Austrian secret
police, and became an Austrian
citizen in 1959. In 1965, he wM
acquitted of War crimes m I

tribunal had convicted him of war
THESE ARE the bare bones of
the Army documents given to the
ADL. Moreover, virtually all
media sources to date relying
on the ADL report have:
carried the Verbelen story to thit
effect. Sensing a possibly more
involved and more in-depth
story, even in the released FOIA
documents, the JTA sought out
the Army records. This corres-
pondent secured all Verbelen
documents released to the ADL
by the U.S. Army Intelligence
and Security Command in Fort
Meade. Md.
(I'nder law, FOIA materials
released publicly become avail-
able to other requests for the
identical materials particularly
when its use is "in the public
interest." In behalf of both the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency and
himself, this correspondent has
petitioned the U.S. Army Intel-
ligence and Security Command
for the full releae of all deleted
and excised portions of the
Verbelen files on which this JTA
special was based.)
A claim in the media that the
Verbelen case is the second of its
kind to be uncovered since the M
Barbie matter is incorrect. Spe-
cific CIC protective usage of
major war criminals well before
the Barbie case broke has been
documented on several occasions

UJA Collects $326.5 Million In 1983
For Worldwide Jewish Needs
Total Sets New Record for Peactime,
Exceeds Projections By $1.5 Million
NEW YORK The United
Jewish Appeal collected $326.5
million in cash in calendar year
1983 to set a new peacetime
record, UJA National Cash
Chairman Bernard Borine an-
nounced today.
The total, collected among 627
campigning communities nation-
wide, is $1.5 million more than
was projected for the year by
American campaign leaders
during budget meetings of the
Jewish Agency the principal
beneficiary of UJA-Community
campaign last Febrary, Borine
Funds allocated from com-
munity campaigns finance
human support programs and
services of the Agency and the
American joint Distribution i
Committee in Israel and in 30
other nations served by JDC
"Despite difficult economic
conditions created by cutbacks in
federal and state spending for
social welfare programs in
communities, American Jewry
once again has responded with
generosity and compassion to the
ongoing needs of the world
Jewish family," Borine said.
"This remarkable performance
demonstrates our enduring
commitment to the quality and
continuity of Jewish life every-
where it exists."
Campaign leaders had
predicted a decline in cash collec-
tions in 1983 following the Israel

' Galilee, launched by the
government of Israel in June,
1982, to free the nation's nor-
thern settlements from constant
terrorist attack, Borine noted.
A total of S67.9 million has
been pledged to the Special Fund
to date to help provide additional
support for civilian social welfare,
education and health programs
and services threatened by
reductions or curtailment in the
conomic wake of the Galilee
operation. Cash collected in 1983
included SI9 million earmarked
for the Israel Special Fund,
Borine said.
The National Cash Chairman
stated that the 1983 cash total
include $283 million for the 1983
Regular Campaign to support
Jewish Agency programs for
housing, financial aid, health
care, job training and Hebrew
instruction for Israel's new
immigrants; the establishment of
rural settlements in the Galilee,
Arava and Negev; Youth Aliyah
facilities for the education and
care of youngsters who remain
outside the mainstream of Israeli
society, and special programs for
the elderly. Funds from UJA-
Community campaigns also go to
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution committee which
aids Jews in more that 30
countries including Moslem
states and lands of distress.
The total also includes $20.6
million for Project Renewal, the
sweeping economic, social and
cultural rehabilitation program
created to improve the quality of
life in Israel's distressed neigh-
borhoods, he added.
"A pledge is a commitment to
the Jewish people," Borine
explained. "Cash is the fulfill-
ment of that promise. We can
take pride in what we have
achieved, but we must recognize
that much still remains to be
done in our partnership with the
people of Israel and Jews around
the globe.
Borine said UJA has launched
an accelerated cash program in
1984 that aims at collection of
unpaid pledges from 1984 and
prior Regular Campaigns; fulfill-
ment of commitments to the
residents of Project Renewal
neighborhoods, and total
redemption of unpaid pledges to
the Israel Special Fund. In
addition, communities are being
urged to remit cash to UJA for all
allocated needs in equal monthly

About Money Markets
"There are so many new

people with small savings, yet
many seniors are unaware, or
mistrustful, of them," according
to Becky Margolin, president of

Senior Program.
To help, the JCC created its
nonthly "Managing on Your In-
come" series. The February
program is "Money Markets:
How to Use Them to Increase
Modest Savings." The program
will be held twice, at 1:30 p.m.
and at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21 at the
JCC. Jack Carlisle, a banking
officer with NCNB will be the
guest speaker.
Any adult is welcome to attend
the seminar which will be offered
at no charge to adults age 60

comed and help the JCC Senior
Center maintain programs.

Floridian Spotlight On
Jan and Anna Lee Markowitz
(Herman Lerner was the
owner-publisher of the Suncoast
Jewish News, which he estab-
lished in St. Petersburg after
arriving in 1965 from Toledo, Oh.
He is active in B'nai B'rith as
vice president of the Tampa
Lodge and vice president of the
West Coast Council He is a
Realtor-Associate with Tom-Bay
Realty in Tampa.)
During the 1983 Convention of
District 5 B'nai B'rith held at
Innisbrook, Jay Markowitz
received an award. This award is
particularly outstanding. Moat of
the awards were for achievement,
usually in one aspect of B'nai
B'rith. The award presented to
Jay Markowitz was "District 5
Ben B'rith Of The Year."
This award is usually
presented to two members, but
this year only one measured up to
the committee's criteria. That
was Jay Markowitz. This marked
the second time Jay has been so
honored; a singular distinction
within the District.

rage" over an article in the
Soviet Communist Party

Nazism grew from the same

likened the present Israeli leader-
ship and its methods to Hitler

Howard Friedman, national
president of the Ame. .can Jewish
Committee, called the Pravda
piece a "savage and immoral
attack ... on the Jewish people,
Judaism and the State of Israel.''
HE CABLED U.S. Ambassa-
dor Max Kampelman who ac-
companied Secretary of State
George Shultz to the East-West
Conference on Security in
Europe, held in Stockholm last
week, to discuss the Pravda
article with Shultz and other
appropriate persons and to urge
the U.S. government to repudiate
the charges contained in it.
Lynn Singer, president of the
Union of Councils for Soviet
Jewry, warned that the Pravda
article is "of urgent concern due
to its official nature and serving
as official policy to re-enforce and
strengthen the traditional anti-
Semitism found in the Soviet
Union ... Pravda s official
attack is an assault on the entire
Jewish community foreboding
increasingly dangerous times for
Jews living in the Soviet Union."
District 5, the largest in B'nai
B'rith has 35,000 members in
