U.S. Navy To Lease 12 Kfir Jet Fighters from Israel Air Force
By London Chronicle Syndicate
The U.S. Navy's
expected decision to lease
12 Kfir fighters from the
Israeli Air Force will be
accompanied by the
largest deal which Israel
Aircraft Industries (IAI)
has ever made with the
For IAI, well-informed
sources here said, the contract
to service and maintain the
Kfirs in the United States is
worth between $65 and $75
million over the next three
The U.S. Navy wants the
Kfirs because the Israeli-made
fighters are thought to do an
excellent job simulating Soviet-
made MIG-21s in combat
training exercises. The New
York Times has reported that
the Navy is in the final stages
of concluding a separate deal
with China to buy some MIG-
21s. but those aircraft are
unlikely to be made available to
the U.S. before 1986-87.
U.S. Navy spokesman as saying
that pending the contract with
China and the actual delivery of
the planes, the Navy will lease
the Kfirs.
"Under the terms of the
loan." it added, "Israel Aircraft
Industries will be paid to main-
tain the aircraft, but Israel will
retain ownership."
In a complicated transaction,
the 12 planes will be taken from
the Israeli Air Force. They will
be leased to the U.S. at no cost.
Under a separate contract, IAI
will be exclusively responsible
for servicing the planes at an
Air Force base in Virginia.
Navy cannot enter into any
formal barter arrangement with
a foreign government. But well-
informed sources who have
closely followed the U.S.-Israeli
negotiations over the Kfir lease
said the Israeli military will win
some separate lease arrange-
ment from the U.S., perhaps

Navy's contract to provide
additional fighters which could
simulate the MIG-21. Under-
standably, they have sought to
block the Kfir deal.
Currently, the Navy uses
McDonnell Douglas as A-4s and
Northrop F-5s in the adversary
roles during training exercises.
But the Kfir is said to have a
more realistic MIG-type capa-
bility, and the Navy appears
determined to go ahead with the
unique arrangement.
Over the past few years, there
has been a dramatic improve-
ment in relations between Israel
and the U.S. Navy, in part the
result of a more pro-Israeli atti-
tude reflected by Navy
Secretary John Lehman.
EARLIER THIS year, in a
major development, the navy
purchased Israeli-made pilotless
reconnaissance aircraft. There
have also been increased U.S.
Sixth Fleet visits to Haifa.
Israeli officials cited the poli-
tical importance of having the
U.S. Navy incorporate Israeli-
made aircraft fighters a
further indication of the

Doug Cohn To Head
1985 Federation Campaign
Flight of Kfirs Over Tel Aviv
involving additional spare parts
for other Israeli military
"Because of the Kfir lease,"
one source said, "the Israeli
military will be able to obtain
some additional U.S. equipment
which it otherwise would not
have been able to receive."
All sources here refused to
say exactly what Israel wanted.
Israel has been very anxious
to conclude the deal for two
major reasons: 1. It represents a
significant bonanza for IAI; and
2. It underlines Israel's techno-
logical expertise which should
help to promote military sales to
other countries.
In recent years, Israel has
made a determined push to
increase weapons exports.
SEVERAL U.S. aircraft firms
have been competing for the
Douglas B. Cohn, associate
chairman of the 1984 Tampa
Jewish Federation-United
Jewish Appeal Campaign has
been selected to serve as
General Chairman of the 1985
In making the announcement,
Judith O. Rosenkranz, President
of the Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion, stated, "We are most
pleased that Doug has accepted
this major position in our
Tampa Jewish community. He
has demonstrated his commit-
ment and concern as the asso-
ciate chairman to John Oster-
weil in last year's record break-
ing campaign. His logical think-
ing, sensitivity to both the indi-
viduals and the issues involved,
make him a very capable
campaign leader."
Cohn, a native of Omaha,
Nebraska, has lived in Tampa
with his wife Maureen, their son
Greg, and daughter Jamie, since
1969. He is the owner-manager
of the Tampa Sales and Service
office of the Trane Company, a
commercial air-conditioning
equipment manufacturer with
whom he has been associated
since 1962.
A graduate of Purdue Univer-
sity with an engineering degree,
Cohn studied for an MBA at the
University of Chicago and
Southern Methodist University
Doug Cohn
in Dallas. As a captain in the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
he received paratrooper training
and served in Okinawa and
Thailand. Locally, he is a
member of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek and Palma Ceia
Golf and Country Club and
serves on the board of directors
of the Tampa Jewish Federation
and the Downtown Tampa
Rotary Club. He is also a
member of the Tampa Jewih

Terry Abrahams New Program Director At Jewish Community Center
On July 2 a new phase in
programming started at the
Tampa Jewish Community
Terry Abrahams, an energetic
and talented woman, began the
task of organizing community
activities at the community
center. She is putting together a
*all brochure, a membership
Open House on September 9,
and a Jewiah Film Series.
Terry said, "My long-range
plans could include 'Tour
Tampa on a 10 Speed,' and will
include more social and cultural
Programming for tweens, teens,
and adults."
One of Abrahams' talents is
writing and directing local
shows. In the spring she
fi?UCed "Mebb Rebbe" for
y* Congregation Schaarai
Jfdek Sisterhood Birthday
arty, and is now in the process
writing a November produc-
"on of "Noah's Lark" for the
ferry Abrahams
Ways and Means Committee of
the Jewish Community Center.
Abrahams would like to see
more creative, participatory
activities at the center, such as
a Drama Group.
Terry brings to the Jewish
Community Center a degree in
Sociology-Recreation from the
University of Illionois. She pre-
viously worked as a social
worker, a director of a Women's
Center, and director of Senior
Citizens' activities, children's
activities, and the Day Camp at
the Jewish Community Center
in Toledo, Ohio.
In addition to these activities
she was able do to a host of
volunteer jobs while raising her
family, such as teaching Suday
School, leading a Great Books
group, Girl Scout leader, and
congregational Sisterhood acti-
No stranger to active sports,
Abrahams has taught physical
education and swimming, and
coached Softball and swim
teams. She has taught swim-
ming to the blind, retarded, and
handicapped; and coached their
swim team.
Fencing is an important sport
to Terry. While living in
Topeka, Kansas she coached an
intercollegiate fencing team at
Washburn University, and she
would like to see a fencing club
in the Tampa area.
Another Abrahams interest is
folk dancing. The ethnicity of
the folk dances is her way of
learning about different
cultures. Since coming to
Tampa, Terry has taught Israeli
dancing at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek.
She is president of the Florida
Fold Dance Council, assistant
director of the Tampa Festival
Folk Dance, ana costume
director and dancer in the Folk
Dance Performing Group.
Abrahams is married to Joe
Abrahams, administrator of
Parks, Recreation, Cultural
Department for the city of
Tampa. They have four
daughter, Debbie, Mickey,
Patty, and Susie; and a grand-
daughter, Roxanne.

Feinstein Urges Renewed
Jewish Support for Blacks
(JTA) Mayor Dianne
Feinstein has called on
American Jews to continue
to support the Black com-
munity and uged Blacks
to show understanding for
Jewish issues.
Speaking at a breakfast spon-
sored by the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) at the Fairmount
Hotel, Feinstein noted that she
is Mayor of a city whose largest
ethnic community is the Black
community and her relationship
with it "is positive and
mutually supportive." However,
she noted, many Blacks still do
not understand "how we feel
when the word 'quota' is used."
The Mayor noted that, in the
past, quotas had been used to
deny places to Jews.
SHE SAID there was also a
misunderstanding among Blacks
and non-Jews of what Israel
means to American Jews.
"Israel means that no Jews will
ever walk into gas chambers
again." She said once this is
made clear to non-Jews, the
reason for Israel's existence is
On the presidential campaign,
Feinstein noted that when she
was interviewed by Walter
Mondale as his possible Vice
Presidential running mate, she
was not only the first woman
and the first Mayor to be inter-
viewed but also the first Jew.
She predicted that a Jew will be
elected President in the near
Joan Mondale also appeared
before the 700 persons attending
the AIPAC breakfast. She
revealed that all three children
of the New York Congressman
Geraldine Ferraro, who the
former Vice President has
chosen as his running mate,
have climbed Masada in Israel.
NUMEROUS Senators,
Congressmen and other elected
officials and would-be elected
officials were introduced at the
AIPAC meeting. The loudest
applause came for Gov. James
Hunt of North Carolina, who is
opposing the reelection bid of
Republican Sen. Jesse Helms.
Thomas Dine, AIPAC's
executive director, stressed that
it has finally been realized in
this country that "Israel is
important to the United States
and the United States is
important to Israel."
Meanwhile, the theme on
Black-Jewish cooperation was
also sounded by Sen. Frank
Lautenberg of New Jersey
during a tribute to slain civil
rights leader Dr. Martin luther
King, Jr. at the Democratic
"I AM distressed when I see
division within our country or
within our party, especially
when it is between those who
have shared common, painful
experiences," Lautenberg
declared. "Jews and Blacks, for

people have historically identi-
fied themselves with the goals
of the Democratic Party. Their
kinship is that they have suf-
fered bigotry, experienced the
ghetto, been barred from
schools, restricted and red-lined
from neighborhoods and know
too well the stigma of second
class citizenry."

Jewish Terrorist Sentenced
In Conspiracy to Bomb Shrine
Yehuda Cohen, one of
27 indicted members of a
Jewish terrorist under-
ground, was sentenced to
three-and-a-half years in
prison for his part in a
conspiracy to blow up Is-
lamic shrines on the Tem-
ple Mount.
Cohen, who confessed to the
conspiracy charge, will serve 18
months in jail. Two years of his
sentence were suspended by
Judge Ezra Hadaya of the Jeru-
salem District Court who called
the offense "shockingly grave"
and a threat to public peace am.
tence, Hadays said: "This of-
fense was committed because of
an extreme and fanatic ideolog-
ical motive and because of belief
that the end justified the
means." Cohen, 25, one of the
few terrorist suspects released
on bail, said he would appeal his
sentence to the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the police have
posted "wanted" notices for two
suspected members of the ter-
rorist underground still at large.
They are Ira Rappaport, a Gush
Emunim emissary to the United
States, and Yossi Indor of the
West Bank settlement of Ofra.
Indor is believed hiding out in
Israel. Rappaport is said to be
in the U.S. but his associates in
New York disclaim knowledge of
his whereabouts. The Jerusalem
Post reported that the Israeli
police have asked hhe FBI for
help in tracking him down.

Gov't. Expected to Take
Stronger Pro-Israel Stand
Socialist government of
Premier Laurent Fabius,
no longer tethered to the
Communist Party which
was part of the coalition
headed by former Premier
Pierre Mauroy, is expected
to adopt a stronger pro-Is-
rael stance than its pre-
decessor, diplomatic
observers said here.
Although foreign policy is the
exclusive province of the Presi-
dent under the French
Constitution, President Francois
Mitterrand had been forced to
take Communist opinion into
consideration when he
formulated it in the past.
"NOW, with the Communists
gone, the President will, have an
even freer hand hi pursuing a
strong pro-Western Atlantic line
in Europe and the Middle
East," the observers said.
Mitterrand named Fabius to
succeed Mauroy after the
latter's sudden resignation last
week and the Cabinet has been
Among the four Communist
ministers dropped was Charles
Fitterman, Minister of
Transport, who was born in
Lille, the son of Jewish immi-
grant parents from Poland. He
is slated to replace Georges
Marchais as Secretary General
of France's Communist Party.
Fabius has reappointed
another Jew who held a senior
Cabinet post in the Mauroy
government, Justice Minister
Robert Badinter. Gaston
DeFerre, a non-Jew but a warm
friend of Israel, lost his portfolio
of Minister of Interior but
remains a Minister of State and
is the highest ranking Cabinet
member after the Prime
Minister. Minister of Culture
Jack Lang, who is Jewish, is
expected to keep his post which
is classified as a junior minister.

Israel Has Voted,
But Has Not Spoken
What the election in Israel
demonstrated Monday is pretty much
what we anticipated in these columns last
week. Labor emerged with a few more
seats than Likud. In sum, this shows a
marginally greater concern among Israelis
for the continuing IDF presence in
Lebanon and the Likud Government's
expanding settlement program on the
West Bank.
In the case of Lebanon, Labor's
Chairman Shimon Peres has on two
separate occasions made two separate
promises if elected: 1) he would remove
Israel's presence in Lebanon within three
months after taking office; 2) he would
remove Israel's presence in Lebanon
within six months after taking office.
In the case of the West Bank, Peres
stands for a drastically-reduced
settlement program and talks with
Jordan's King Hussein, with an eye
toward trading some territory for a firm
peace agreement. Just how drastically
reduced, just how much territory, he
hasn't spelled out.
Likud, for its part, has made it clear
that none of these things would occur
were it given a renewed mandate to rule.
Indeed, new settlements were opened with
record speed all of last week up until the
opening hours of Election Day.
A Divided Nation
Do the few seats that Labor won over
Likud suggest that the Israeli electorate
has given Peres a directive to pursue his
vaguely-stated aims in Lebanon and on
the West Bank? Certainly not. Nor, in
fact, does the closeness of the vote, in our
view a virtual stand-off, say anything to
either party about what was probably the
dominant issue in the campaign the
The result is that, once again, the
people of Israel have voted. But they
have not spoken. The country is about as
divided as it can possibly be on the major
questions that matter. We do not say this
with a sense of pessimism either. Our
reading of the results is that the stand-off
is in fact an unmistakeable message to
the world at least as much as it is a
thundersclap of silence as a mandate in
any direction to its own rulers.
Simply put, it is that Israel is not
prepared to retreat from its Lebanese
agony any more readily than it is
prepared to make new concessions to
Arabs who in the end are not about to
accept any presence of Israel under any
circumstances except a dead Israel. If
nothing else, Peres' own shifting
timetable of withdrawal from Lebanon
and his vaguely-stated program for the
West Bank tell that story.
Dilemmas Unresolved
If voters found an enigmatic Peres
marginally more appealing than Likud's
outright refusal to bargain away Israel's
security, their faint nod to Labor over
Likud merely acknowledges their
understanding that something must be
done on these issues. But it also
acknowledges their frustration their
unwillingness to do anything so far as the
Arabs are concerned that meets
necessarily in the end with failure. Or, as
in the case of Egypt, with dead-end.
Then where does the election stand? As
in the past, that depends upon which
party, Labor or Likud, can make a
coalition arrangement with which
fractional seat-holders. Or whether Labor
and Likud can accommodate themselves
to a unity government a possibility
each has renounced so far.
If nothing else, the people of Israel
have told the world's major power-broken
and the minor hypocrites of Europe's
moral imperatives to back off so far as
their own phony "peace initiatives'' are
But this does not solve the Israel-Arab
dilemma. Nor does it do a thing for
Israel's critical economic disaster. What
kind of a government can be formed from
the election results of last Monday
remains to be seen.
But as we suggested here last week, no
one in Israel not Labor, not Likud, not
any of the responsible fractional parties
is prepared to give anything away.

'IDo Not Forgive Jesse Jackson'
and ties are impeccable. The
contrasting white collar is not
only a la mode, but it empha-
sizes what his title reminds us is
his clerical calling.
Fashion and religion do not
popularity go together, but for
Jackson the tighty-worn
combination achieves two other
things: it identifies him irre-
trievably with the allegedly
spiritual character of his consti-
tuency; at the same time, it sets
him apart from them on the
one hand, their casual attire
governed by their disadvantage,
and on the other, the often
bizarre styles some of them
adopt in a personal world of
show biz flam boy ancy.
IN NEITHER case are these
choices echt Madison Avenue,
and by any stretch of the
imagination, Jackson is
Madison Avenue and not the
typical Johnny Carson late
night black guest entertainer,
sporting anything from a
Michael Jackson glove to the
Fort Knox fardel that typically
weighs Sammy Davis, Jr. down.
Jesse Jackson sees himself as
a leader, a proper leader. In his
address before the Democratic
National Convention in San
Francisco, he had no trouble in
seeing himself as the likes of
Jesus bom in a manger;
Jackson's own ghetto begin-
nings served his metaphoric
purpose perfectly at the conven-
tion in the same way that his
elegant haberdashery serves his
purpose almost everywhere else.
Humble beginnings are the
mythic ultimate of saintly
humility. But great spiritual
leaders universally suffer some
single personal myopia: Moses
stammered and early on
murdered a man; Jesus was a
tad male chauvinistic; the man
of a hundred fires, Camilo Cien-
fuegos; was too fat and addicted
to milkshakes. Jackson's
tortured shirt and tie are the
least of these afflictions.
BUT FOR ME, Jackson is
the Emperor with no clothes. In
San Francisco, when he made
his pitch for forgiveness from
the Jews, despite the splendor
of his duds, he was as naked as
the fabled foolish monarch in
the fairy tale.
No, I do not forgive him. I do
not forgive Jesse Jackson his
venomous campaign rhetoric
about Israel and Jews that was
nothing but frank anti-
I do not respond to the
childish devices of his reverend's
calling that indulge in the kind
of word-play only the illiterate
and otherwise intellectually
weak pronounce as profound
let alone pretend to understand.
I am meant to excuse Jackson
for his anti-Semitic excesses
because he came to the conven-
tion in his Christian way
begging forgiveness. His
excesses, he confessed, were a
sin of the head, not of the heart.
LeT us coMe ToseTHeR
Now what in hell does that
mean? That a fat-mouthed, fast-
talking, opportunistic Jesse
Jackson traded in the coin of
Jew-hatred because he thought
it would help him but that he
didn't really mean it after it
apparently harmed him instead?
That he spoke vilely of Jews
because some people fall for that
stuff, but not a single one of
those sentiments has ever really
lodged in his soul?
BULL. I gay bull because
distinctions between the head
and the heart are the infantile
stuff of the gospel preacher's
trade, and so Jackson could pull
out that stop in a growingly
religion-crazed America and get
the walls shaking, especially in
his constituency with its
anguish toward the mythologies
inherent in Jewish property
ownership, Jewish mercantilism
and Jewish time-payment
vendors of the ghetto where
they once lived.
But the head-heart antithesis
as phony as Jackson's
sartorial splendor is symbolic.
And if I do not forgive him this
be. nor do I forgive the
American Jewish leaders who
have since lined up to grant him
the forgiveness he said he
craved so mightily at the
Jackson's sin against us is
too deep, too grievous. It is the
sting of a traitor and the honey
of a prevaricator, and those
Jewish leaders who exonerate
him are themselves no less
traitorous, no less filled with
prevarication. They make o*
feel like the Jewish sell-
professed Holocaust survivor

podium as one of its presumably

Jackson is a Democratic Party

arrogance. It is a mistake for
Jews to believe that they have
no alternative but to forgive and
forget Jackson in the name ol
party unity because Jews,
Judaism and Israel will do
better with a Democratic victory
than with a second-term Ronald

SHAS IS a new religious
party, sponsored by former
Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia
Yosef. Morasha is also a new
reugious party consisting of
NRP, Emunim and Poale Augda
defectors. Yahad is also a new
party and considering its high
profile campaign, performed
poorly. The Progressive List for
Peace, a coalition of Israeli Arab
nationalists and leftwing Jews
was also making its first
Knesset race.
Israelis went to the polls in a
process as orderly, uneventful
and devoid of incident as the
three-month election campaign
which ended Sunday. But while
voters and political observers
alike agreed that the campaign
was the most apathetic,
uninspired and downright
boring in recent memory, the
voter turnout was high and by
American standards,
IT WAS estimated that about
78 percent of the 2.6 million
eligible voters cast ballots by
the time the polls closed. This
was about the same as in the
1981 Knesset elections which
followed the most boisterous,
bitterly fought and emotional
campaign in Israel's history.
The estimate of the voting is
based on figures released by the
Central Bureau of Statistics
which showed that in the first
11 hours of voting, 55.2 percent
of the eligible voters went to the
polls. This is about the same as
in the same period on election
day, 1981. The Jewish turnout
was 56.1 percent and in the
Arab sector 45.9 percent of
those eligible voted.

had a more vilely anti-Israel
record than the single-term

This rush, this decision to
embrace Jackson, this haste to
pronounce his speech as
masterly and momentous all
these frantic acts of excess are
the marks of a declining
civilization that is happy to
stamp as immortal the mediocre
meanderings of a mediocre intel-
ligence because it knows no
In a world where the hesit-
ancies of Ronald Reagan's
opaque thoughts and phrases
are ordained to be masterful and
the man himself described as
"the great communicator" and
politically unassailable, in such
a world even the brayings of the
public ass about which
Nietzsche felt such anguish and
contempt are crowned with the
laurel of profound oratory.
BUT WHO are the donors of
these encomiums? Do they know
Demosthenes? Socrates? Cicero?
Have they read or heard
Disraeli, Gladstone, Eban? A
convention which plays the
theme music from "Rocky III"
for presidential inspiration lists
its own academic credits with
telling abandon.
Yes, in an American civiliza-
tion boasting by now near-60
percent functional illiteracy,
Jesse Jackson's speech could
have been exalted quite easily,
especially given an assist in this
from the media who are the
braying public ass Nietzsche so
profoundly despised.
Above all things, Jackson's
speech had all the proper ele-
ments for "greatness' that those
least equipped to evaluate it
apparently found endearing:
There was humility aplenty
in his Jewish shtik, which many
anti-Semites, responding to
Jesse cum Jesus, surely
There was the statistical
analysis of his view of American
failures at home and abroad
all of them America's failures,
as he saw them, with no
mention of provocation and no
criticism of those who might
conceivably be the provocateurs,
say, in the Soviet Union, in
Cuba, in Central America, in
Southeast Asia. This blind
statistical Jackson analysis
went down as smoothely in San
Francisco as sour cream, with
no intelligence anywhere to
criticize his strange morality
which, for all of his call for
forgiveness, could sting only
South Africa and Israel as the
twin pariahs of our universe:
There was the last quarter
of the Jackson polemic that
descended more and more into
Black jive-talk, calculated gram-
matical error and the growing
moaning of gospel hand-holding,
hypnotic swaying and other
such arcane activity that fell
just short of antiphonal amens
and shouted announcements of
miraculous cures.
WAS THIS a political
convention? Jackson's shirt and
tie told us it was in the best
shirt and tie tradition of, say,
Woodrow Wilson. But nothing
else did. All we were spared was
the Jackson encomium in
Havana, "Viva Fidel!" -
another aspect of astigmatic
Jackson diplomacy tempered in
the lenses of Third World
I do not forgive Jesse
Jackson. No thinking Jew
should because Jackson's plea
was a plea of the head, not of
the heart. Whatever that means.
Too Light?
The sentences imposed on two
Israelis who confessed to acts of
violence against Arabs or
complicity in such acts, were too
light considering the gravity of
their offenses, according to
appeals lodged with the
Supreme Court by the State
Prosecutor Tuesday.
Noam Yinnon, a resident of
the Golan Heights, confessed
last month to transporting 50
land mines for use by a Jewish
terrorist underground in the
manufacture of bombs that were
planted in five Arab-owned
buses in East Jerusalem last
April 27. Yinnon, who claimed
he did not know how the mines
were to be used, was given a
three year jail term, half of it
The prosecution contends that
he was in fact aware of the
consequences of his crime. It is
also contesting the four year
sentence half of it suspended
imposed on Levy Hazan.

But the former Premier, who

thunderous applause, Deputy
Premier David Levy and former
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon.
They were greeted with chants
of "David, King of Israel" and
"Arik, Arik, Arik, King of
Israel" respectively. "Arik" is
Sharon's nickname. The
speakers were chiefly from the
Herut wing of Likud.
The absence of leaders of its
Liberal Party wing was ex-

No Word On Plot
The Prime Minister's Office has
declined to comment on a report
that Labor Party leader Bob
Hawke and two Australian
Jewish community figures were
the targets of an assassination
plot by a militant Palestinian
organization in the mid-1970's.
According to the report, the
plot was foiled by the
Australian Security Intelligence
Organization whose agents infil-
trated the Palestinian group.
The group was not identified.
Hawke has been Prime
Minister of Australia since
March, 1983 when he defeated
the Liberal Party government of
Malcolm Fraser. At the time of
the alleged assassination plot,
about 10 years earlier, he was
president of the Australian
council of Trade Unions and an
outspoken friend of Israel.

dout visas, they ran in the
g direction to their
lv>ty and deaths.
NOW, I went sightseeing
with the group. My visit became
another reminder of how richly
German Jews contributed to
German culture, science and life
in general only to be told
that they didn't belong, had no
right to live there or
anywhere else, for that matter.
We wandeced through the
Bayerische Platz (Bavarian
Square), an area where so many
Berlin Jews had lived, including
my family and me at Bamberger
Strasse 30.
We were told that this part of
Berlin had been destroyed by
Allied bombardment in an
exceptionally meticulous
fashion. The reason: after the
Jews had fled or were taken to
their deaths from these
buildings in one of Berlin's most
desirable sections, their
apartments had been quickly
occupied by the new elite of
Germany the Nazis. Word of
that got back to those who
planned the bombing missions
over Berlin.
Others making the trip had
their memories, too. A 70-year-
old retired construction worker
from New Jersey told us he was
18 when Hitler came into power,
promising the world a thousand
years in his image. He was
arrested and thrown into jail for
voicing opposition as the Nazis
paraded through the boulevard
Unter Den Linden in an all-
night torch parade celebrating
Hitler's rise. Rescued by an
older brother, who sent him to
safety in Palestine, he later
made his way to the U.S. Now,
returned to Berlin, he said

from a woman who in 1933 had
belonged to the most prestigious
country club in Berlin. A
beautiful, blue-eyed, blonde, she
married an American and in
1934, prepared to leave Ger-
many for the U.S. The Nazi
bureaucrat completing her
emigration papers questioned
her: "Why would a beautiful
lady like you want to exchange
civilized Germany for gangster-
ridden America?"
What is the Germany of
today like? The Berlin Jewish

community, totaling some
174,000 before Hitler, now
numbers about 6,500. Half of
these are Soviet Jews who
arrived during the past ten
years and feel that they have
reestablished a viable communi-
ty with a future.
Among the non-Jews, the
passing of so many years has
brought change. I read some-
where that immediately after
the war, an Australian rabbi
who visited Germany was asked
upon his return home whether
he thought the Germans
regretted what they had done.
"Only the innocent ones," he
replied. Now, four decades after
Hitler ended his life, innocent
Germans constitute the vast
majority. There also appears to
be an enormous urge to deal
with the past and to learn from
FOR EXAMPLE, there is an
exhibit at the Reichstag, the
German parliament burned by
Hitler in one of the final acts of
killing democracy. The exhibit
shows the Nazi era without a
trace of whitewash. The events,
in all their horror, are to be seen
and learned from.
There are also, however,
extremist forces in Germany,
just as there are elsewhere in
the world, striving to revive
Nazism. In the minority, as
once Nazism itself was, their
potential for violence and
divisiveness is nevertheless not
underestimated. They are
carefully monitored by the West
German government and, as in
most other free countries, not
accepted by the vast majority of
the people.
The goal of the Berlin
visitation program is not to
bring Jews back to Germany to
stay. Rather, it seems to be part
of a public relations and
educational program to tell
Jews, and others, that there is a
new Germany, far removed from
its evil past.
To the participants of this
trip, places continue to tell the
story new ones, and those no
longer there. Where once the
beautiful synagogue of the
Fasanenstrasse stood, ther is
now the Jewish community
center of Berlin. Incorporated
' into its structure is the portal of
the house of worship destroyed
during Kristallnacht. The
symbolism was not lost on us
the Jewish people go on and
survive. This is the message
from Berlin to the world.
Lebanon Expected Unilaterally
To Close Liaison Office
Israeli officials are ex-
pecting momentarily
formal notification from
the Lebanese government
that it is shutting down
the "Liaison Commis-
sion," the quasi-diplomatic
mission Israel has main-
tained at Dbaiyah, 10
miles north of Beirut,
since shortly after its
invasion of Lebanon in
June, 1982.
The Commission was widely
regarded as the forerunner of
formal Israeli diplomatic repre-
sentation in Lebanon, fortified
by the withdrawal and security
agreement signed by Lebanon
and Israel on March 17, 1963.
But when President Amin
Gemayal officially abrogated the
pact last March, the Commis-
sion's legal status became un-
certain as did its future.
ACCORDING to reports from
Beirut, the Lebanese govern-
ment ordered the mission closed

A Special Limited Offer
at a Cabinet meeting, presided
over by Prime Minister Rash"*
Karami. Karami instructed
Defense Minister Adel Osseiran
to withdraw all Lebanese per-
sonnel from the mission. Israeli
officials said that the long
rumored shut-down now appears
to be "for real."
They said that while not sur-
prised, they were concerned over
how Israel can maintain con-
tacts with Lebanese officials in
the future. Such contacts are
important in the context of
Israel's eventual withdrawal
