'86 Campaign Goal
Set At $1.3 Million
The Tampa Jewish Federation
Board of Directors recently
adopted the recommendation
from the Campaign Cabinet to set
$1.3 million as the goal for the
1986 Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign, according to Doug Cohn,
Campaign General Chairman.
Cohn stated "that he feels the
1986 goal is a minimum amount
needed by the Tampa Jewish com-
munity, but it is also a realizable
goal for the community to reach."
The 1985 Campaign raised
$1,150,000 for the regular cam-
paign and an additional $100,000
for "Operation Moses" (the
rescue and resettlement fund for
Ethiopian Jews).
The 1986 goal will meet the
necessary ongoing programs, but
does not allow for any major ex-
pansions, according to Federation
officials. However, the Board of
Directors felt it was important to
present to the community a goal
that was realistic to obtain, and all
efforts will be put forth not only to
achieve the goal, but to surpass it.

Plans Proceeding
For Super Sunday '86
Super Sunday '86, the massive
phonathon on behalf of United
Jewish Appeal and local Jewish
agencies, will be co-chaired by Jan
Wuliger and Jane Spector. Super
Sunday, scheduled for Feb. 2, is
expected to intensify community
involvement in the Campaign and
acquaint people with the critical
challenges facing Jews in Tampa,
in Israel, and throughout the
This year, Super Sunday will be
highlighted by the participation of
prominent local sports per-
sonalities. This factor will be
especially significant because the
Super Sunday Campaign Cabinet
has announced the selection of a
sports theme for the event, in-
cluding sports teams, locker
rooms, and training quarters in
place of the traditional phone
rooms, refreshment areas, and
babysitting facilities.
Sometime between the hours of
9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb.
2, every member of the Tampa
Jewish community will receive a
phone call from one of their
neighbors requesting their help
for Jews in need at home, in
Israel, and around the world.
"Complete support is essential,"
asserted Spector and Wuliger,
"not only to maintain the strength
and identity of our own Jewish
community, but also to meet unen-
ding immigrant needs in Israel
and sustain Jewish life throughout
the world."
The Cabinet has established a
goal of $125,000 for the day, and
members are confident that this
goal will be reached. The goal of
the"total campaign is $1,300,000.
Overall campaign chairman is

hearing and related workshops at
the Jewish Community Center on
Sunday, Jan. 19 from 11:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m.
The program titled "Irrecon-

teens attending who will base a
"verdict", re: visitation, support,
etc. on information presented by
the family, the attorneys and men-
tal health professionals.

youth and adult Harp/Piano classes performed at Tampa Bay
Center on Dec. 14. The beautiful program included solos, duets
and large ensemble harp, piano and flute selections varying from
Chanukah music to popular and classical. The students, including
Stacey Kordecki, daughter of Carolyn and Gerald Kordecki,
ranged in age from through adult, many having had no prior
musical background before starting this program. Several of Ms.
Ossip's harp students also performed on Dec. 22 at the Burdines
in University Square Mall. Congratulations to all the musicians
for a profesional and heart(string)warming job.

Well remembered. The late Dr. Moses A. Chardkoff, gave
many years of his life, and his talent and medical expertise, to the
detainees within the jail system; and provided the impetus that
led to the modernizing of medical treatment for those individuals.
Sheriff Walter C. Heinrich and Senator Malcolm Beard deem-
ed it appropriate that the new prison health facility be named in
honor of the late doctor. A special ceremony was held, unveiling
the plaque that reads Dr. Moaes A. Chardkoff Clinic. The entire
community shares the Chardkoff family honor.

New Host For
'The Jewish Sound'
Michael Eisenstadt is the new
host of The Jewish Sound on
WMNF (88.5 FM). Eisenstadt, a
regular contributor to the show
for two years, has been involved
with Jewish music most of his life.
His family boasts a long line of
Klezmer musicians, both in
America and in eastern Europe.
He currently is a saxophone-
clarinetist with the Orson Skorr
Orchestra. Michael, his wife Deb-

Amos Doron will be at home in
Tampa for at least the next two
years as the shaliach (messenger)
from Israel. He will be working in
the Tampa Jewish Community
Center and organizing the Central
Florida area of Tampa, Pinellas,
and Orlando in expanding the in-
terest of the communities in ex-
periencing life in Israel.
This two year assignment is
jointly sponsored by the Tampa
Jewish Community Center, die
American Zionist Youth Founda-
tion, and Betar, a summer pro-
gram for young teens and high
school and college students.
The goals of the shaliach pro-
gram are set to strengthen Jewish
identity with an Israeli flavor. The
participants in the program will
learn about life in Israel and also
become acquainted with the
Zionist idea. The young people
will be given the opportunity to go
into several different six and eight
week summer program in Israel.

The Jewish Sound airs every
Sunday from 10:30 a.m. until 1
p.m. The program, the only one of
its kind in the Tampa Bay area,
features Jewish music, comedy,
news, and information.
Eisenstadt replaces Oded
Salpeter, host of the show for the
past 5Vt years. Salpeter has ac-
cepted a similar position with
WKAT in Miami.
Guardian Ad Litem Program
Guardian At Litem is a program
within juvenile court which
assigns trained volunteers to
children who are going through
judicial proceedings as a result of
child abuse or neglect in the home.
The Guardian Ad Litem volunteer
serves as an officer of the court,
and acts as a representative of the
abused child.
The volunteer's role has five
functions: 1) Investigate the child
and family's background to deter-
mine the facts of the case, 2) Pro-
tect the child from insensitive
questioning and the often harmful
effects of being embroiled in the
adversary court process, 3)
Assure that the best interest of
the child is presented to the court
and social service agencies, 4)
Report and present information to
the court and help determine what
is in the beat interest of the child,
and 6) Monitor agepcies and per-

There is also a program design-
ed for those students with leader-
ship qualities to spend a year in
Jerusalem, between high school
graduation and entering college.
Doron said, "There are many
programs competing for ap-
plicants and I will be working
mainly with the unaffiliated
families and trying to offer
another activity."
"I want to strengthen the con-
nection between the United
States and Israel by working with
student groups and talking to the
people in the many local organiza-
tions," said Doron.
Doron is well qualified for his
work here. He and his family
spent three years in Melbourne,
Australia as the shaliachs. The ex-
perience was so good that they ap-
plied for another assignment.
Although the Tampa challenge is
a smaller community the impact
may be greater since it has never
had a shaliach with long range
goals. Perhaps many will
remember the summertime
shaliachs at the Jewish Communi-
ty Day Camps, including Orly
Paturi and Amnon Naftali.
Doron has had extensive ex-
perience in education and in com-
munity development. He was the
executive director of the Project
Renewal at Neve-Shret, a suburb
of Tel Aviv, which is twinned with
the city of Columbus, Ohio.
Since Project Renewal began in
1977 the program has encompass-
ed about 80 neighborhoods and
touched more than 600,000
residents. Project Renewal
develops a close relationship bet-
ween the cities which are con-
nected by education, visits, and
matching funds, and between the
local communities and the local

Hadassah's Salute to Music Of The Jewish
People Will Feature Cantor Hauben
The Tampa Chapter of
Hadassah cordially invites
members of the community to
come enjoy a program which will
be a salute to the music of the
Jewish people at 12:30 p.m. in the
auditorium of the Jewish Com-
munity Center, 2808 Horatio, on
Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 22.
Cantor William Hauben of Con-
gregation Rodeph Sholom will be
presenting varied selections of
secular, Yiddish and Hebrew
songs. Cantor Hauben, who grew
up in Poland, is a graduate of the
College of Jewish Studies in
Chicago and has been an active
member of the Cantor's Assembly
of America for over 25 years.
Accompanying Cantor Hauben
will be Malcolm Westly, Professor
of Music at the University of
Also on the program will be a
presentation by Hadassah
member Edie Dressier and An-
drea Graham, both with the Tam-
pa Bay Performing Arts Center.
The following is an excerpt from
the publication, Medium, of the
Jewish Media Service. "Moses
and the children of Israel crossed
the Red Sea singing what might
be considered the first Jewish
song (Exodus 15). No doubt theirs
was a song of praise to God for
their deliverance. Possibly so-
meone introduced a marching
beat to encourage the group to
move smartly!"
Cantor William Hauben
".. music is a creative expres-
sion of the full spectrum of human
experience. Jewish music is as
varied as Jewish life and mirrors
the diversity of a people dispersed
to the four comers of the earth."
"Secular Jewish music often
evolves from sacred music.
Zmiroi, songs sung during meals,
function to extend the Sabbath
from the synagogue to the home.
Popular singing groups such as
the Diaspora Yeshiva Band use
religious themes as the basis of
music set to a rock or jazz beat.
The Hasidic niggun, a song
without words, is influenced by
folk music but functions on an
emotional level that has religious
"Everyday life is also reflected
in secular Jewish music. Universal
themes find expression in the
lyrics of a Yiddish lullaby, the
lover's lament of a Yemenite Jew,
or the work songs of Russian

emotions, tells a story, or simply
entertains is considered 'Jewish
music' so long as it is the music of

Hussein's Posture May Help Block
Senate Rejection of Arms to Jordan
Sen. Richard Lugar(R.,
Ind.), chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, predicted that
because of what he called
the "faltering" Middle East
peace process, resolutions
may be introduced "early
on' in the Senate to reject
the Reagan Administra-
tion's proposed $1.9 billion
arms sales to Jordan.
Lugar, at a press conference
discussing foreign relations issues
for the new year, said last Friday,
the Foreign Relations Committee
would hold a hearing on the
Mideast peace process, sometime
in the first few weeks after Con-
gress returns from its winter
HE NOTED that Congress has
until March 1 to act on the Jordai-
nian arms sale. This is the date to
which a resolution by both Houses
had postponed the sale, which the
Administration had proposed Oct.
21, unless "direct and meaningful
peace negotiations between Israel
and Jordan are underway."
Lugar said he expected the Ad-
ministration would propose an
arms sale to Saudi Arabia this
year, but said he would not
speculate on his reaction until he
saw the proposal.
The Indiana Senator appeared
to place a great deal of respon-
sibility for the lack of progress in
the peace process on Syria, which
he said was among those in the
Mideast "who have not wanted
that initiative to succeed." He ad-
ded, "The current negotiations
(by Syria) with King Hussein have
not been helpful."
LUGAR SAID the terrorist at-
tacks at the Vienna and Rome air-
ports Dec. 27 may have been aim-
ed at wrecking the peace process.
He said that if the U.S. used force
to retaliate, this would result in a
"very serious setback" for the
peace process, but noted it was
already a "faltering process."
However, Lugar supported the
use of force if it's necessary but
urged the need for international
cooperation against terrorism. He
said there is a "change of mind in
this country and it is becoming ap-
parent in Europe" to support
government action against ter-
rorism "that may involve the loss
of life."
But he said there is not yet the
realization that state-sponsored
terrorism involves "nation-states,
and nation-states must be held

Peres Pushing
Likud's Shamir on Border Dispute
Premier Shimon Peres is
making a determined effort
to persuade his Likud part-
ner, Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, to accept a
formula to resolve Israel's
border dispute with Egypt
over Taba. The two men
were scheduled to meet
privately this week to
discuss the matter.
The Primer Minister's Office
asserted earlier that all outstan-
ding obstacles to a settlement
have been overcome in recent
talks between Israeli and Egyp-
tian negotiating teams. Peres
himself told reporters that the
issue of Taba is approaching the
moment when Israel must make
decisions. "I am not holding a
stopwatch in my hand," he added.
ISRAEL RADIO reported that
Peres gave Shamir the file con-
taining all of Jerusalem's ex-
changes with Cairo on Taba to
date. He hopes the Likud leader,
after studying the record, will
conclude that his concerns have
been addressed and that he can
therefore support the proposed
formula for a settlement.
But political observers have
predicted that Shamir, facing a
serious leadership challenge from
the far rightwing of his own Herut
Party, may choose to stand tough
on his insistence that the Taba
dispute be settled by conciliation,
not the binding arbitration
demanded by Egypt.
Peres, supported by the Labor
Party leadership, has long been
flexible on the matter and believes
the latest formula satisfies the in-
terests of both sides. Peres,
moreover, sees Taba itself as
unimportant. The tiny sliver of
beach on the Red Sea near Eilat
has no strategic or economic value
worth a prolonged dispute. On the
other hand, resolution of the
dispute, Peres believes, will bring
about a swift thaw in the "cold
peace" that has soured Israeli-
Egyptian relations since the
Lebanon war.
President Mubarak
According to Israel Radio,
President Hosni Mubarak has pro-
posed a summit meeting with
Peres at the end of this month,
assuming 1 aba and other bilateral
issues have been resolved by then.
Sources close to Peres say an ac-
cord over Taba is the key to a
broader understanding between
the two countries what Egypt
calls the "basket" approach.
THE BASKET presumably
would contain the return of the
Egyuptian Ambassador who was
recalled from Tel Aviv in
September, 1982, at the height of
the Lebanon war, a rivival of
trade and tourism, and an overall
general improvement in relations.
One move, scheduled to begin
this month, is the search, in Egyp-
tian waters, for the Israeli sub-
marine Dakar, which was
reported missing on Jan. 26,1968,
with her 69-member crew while on
her delivery voyage from Britain
to Israel.
In a letter to Peres this week,
Mubarak made a point of praising
the Israeli leader's efforts for
peace, especially his speech to the
United Nations General Assembly
in November. Mubarak asserted
that there were no restraints on
Egyptian trade and tourism with
Israel though it has dwindled
almost to the vanishing point
and he urged Israel to exercise
restraint in responding to the ter-
rorist attacks on El Al passenger
facilities at the Rome and Vienna
airports Dec. 27.
PERES, therefore, is determin-
ed to press for a swift resolution
of the Taba issue. The formula
said to have been agreed to by the
Israeli and Egyptian negotiators
last month, calls for arbitration
a concession to Cairo. But the ar-
bitrators would be empowered to
propose compromise solutions,
the goal of conciliation, during the
early stages of the arbitration
Israel would call this stage con-
ciliation, the mode favored by
Likud. Egypt would refrain from
using the word "conciliation,"
agreeing simply to "other means"
employed by the arbitrators.
According to sources close to
Peres, agreement has also been
reached with Cairo that
whichever side loses in the ar-
bitration process, it will continue
to have access to Taba and
specifically to the luxury resort
hotel built there more than a year
ago by Israel entrepreneurs.

To Retaliate \
Or Not To Retaliate'
To retaliate or not to retaliate? That is the'
question. In the intervening time that this
was written and will be read, the answer
may well have been given in no uncertain
terms of military operation. But the odds
seem to be stacking increasingly heavily
against that, at least so far as the United
States is concerned, this will not be so.
For a long time, Israel has been saying
that terrorism is not an Israeli problem
alone. Despite the murder of many non-
Israeli nationals over the past few years, the
world has chosen to ignore the suggestion
that a global approach to the problem of ter-
rorism is needed.
So long as the perception remained that
Arab murderers have in mind only the
slaughter of Israelis and that, with rare ex-
ception, only Israelis were murdered, all
facts to the contrary seemed irrelevant.
But while many Israelis did of course die,
lost in the shuffle of public consciousness
were the non-Israeli the non-Jewish vic-
tims of this terrorism.
Even Craxi Joins Chorus
Now it is no longer possible to continue
the self-deception. While the Palestinian
members of the Abu Nidal sect fired their
shots last Dec. 27 at the El Al terminals in
Rome and Vienna, it was mainly Christians
and Muslims whom they murdered.
Even Italian Prime Minister Craxi has
changed his tune since then. Only a month
ago, he was urging the world community to
understand what "motivated" Yasir Arafat
and the PLO to engage in terrorism. For the
civilized Western world, Craxis' reaction to
the PLO-orchestrated Achille Lauro affair
and Italy's arrogant release of Abu Abbas,
the terrorist mastermind behind that sordid
event, still leaves a grave question mark on
Craxi's career.
But in the aftermath of the Dec. 27 double
shoot-out, Craxi has now joined the chorus
of condemnation against it. Perhaps too
late. ^
While the Reagan Administration has
almost always said the right things against
terrorism, the victimization of Americans in
that shootout, coupled with the still-gnawing
ache of non-retaliation following the brutal
murder of New Yorker Leon Klinghoffer
aboard the Achille Lauro, now results in the
massing of American naval and air might in
the Mediterranean to focus upon Libya and
its wicked chief, Muommar Khadafy.
It is Khadafy who has tenderized the dou-
ble shoot-out as the heroic work of martyrs
against the only terrorists in the world
the United States and Israel.
Doubtful U.S. Power Play
Still, it is doubtful that this massed,'
American power will be used in any genuine-
ly military sense beyond President Reagan's
frank confession this week that his main
purpose is to make Khadafy lose sleep
because of the infinitely terrifying
possibilities his plans hold for Khadafy and
Libya both singled out as the source of
tactical and financial support of the forces of
Abu Nidal who are held accountable for the
Dec. 27 terrorism.
Besides Italy, nor have the other Euro-
peans themselves shown any willingness to
enter the fray. For France, West Germany
and Great Britain, and for Italy as well,
Khadafy and Libya mean big bucks belong-
ing to corporate giants doing business in Li-
byan oil. And so, in the name of profits,
forgotten are the martyrdom of some of
their nationals, no less than the moral prin-
ciples involved in countering terrorism on its
new global scale.
Israel Alone Again
In this sort of reckoning, the United
States itself is just as culpable. How is it that
1,500 American citizens remain in Libya to-
day helping to work the oil wells there and
to make Col. Khadafy's regime filthy rich
enough to bankroll Arab terrorism?
How is it that they remain there despite
the frank Administration demand that they
return? How is it that they remain there
even after they understand that their
presence limits our capacity to retaliate
militarily unless we want to be guilty of
murdering our own nationals in any
retaliatory process?
How is it that American corporate giants
continue to operate in Libya to their own
and Libya's profit despite the government's
economic sanctions against the Khadafy
regime long in place now?
What emerges from all of this is that if
there is any retaliation at all to the Dec. 27
double massacre, it is destined to come from
Israel itself that very nation that con-
tinues to repeat its lesson to the world: ter-
rorism is not an Israeli problem alone. Israel
will have to do it in the same way that Jews
have reacted to wickedness and immorality
throughout the ages launched first against
them, but with everyone else in mind.
Israel will have to do it itself. Alone. In the
cause of itself and of others who will then
find some pretext to castigate it.
And what are the odds in favor of Israeli
retaliation, if it has not already taken place?
In our view, greater than in favor of
American retaliation, but not as sure and
certain as it was in the past.

NEW YORK does the
Jewish woman whose
spacious 35th-floor office
says "Senior Vice Presi-
dent, Investments" differ
any from the WASP woman
in the equally impressive
quarters down the hall?
What if any traits does she
share with the Jewish male
who breathes the same
heady corporate air? How
does she feel about being in
a world that only 30 years
ago would have excluded
her father and would
have barely believed its eyes
if it saw her mother trying
to get in?
And does she think her strug-
gles to gain a place in this world
have been either helped or harmed
by her being both a female and a
In hopes of answering these and
related questions, the American
Jewish Committee and Lilitk a
quarterly magazine directed
toward Jewish women are
sponsoring what they believe to be
the first study ever undertaken of
the Jewish career woman. The
aim of the study, its organizers
say, is "to sketch, for the first
time in any systematic way, a pro-
file of the Jewish career woman"
who has attained, or seems clearly
en her way to attaining, success in
a business or professional arena.
DATA FOR the study which,
.its research director stresses, "is
a pilot study that we know cannot
give final answers" are being
obtained through a questionnaire
which was inserted in an issue of
Lilitk and is also being distributed
through American Jewish Com-
mittee chapters, Jewish Federa-
tion business and professional
women's groups, other Jewish
organizations, and executive
women's groups.
Of the approximately 12,000
questionnaires that have been
distributed, the researchers ex-
pect to get back about a thousand
usable ones. The findings are to be
published in about a year.
In addition to asking about
education, occupation, marital
status, number of children,
parents' and spouse's education
and occupation, and the like, the
study also asks questions such as:
At what stage in your life did
you decide to pursue a career?
Do you feel that your Jewish
identity or commitments had any
effect on the career you chose?
How do you feel that being
Jewish has affected your career
advancement? How do you feel
that your being a woman has af-
fected it?
Have you experienced anti-
Semitism on the job?
In general, do you feel that
the Jewish community in its at-
titude toward women combining
marriage, childbearing, and
careers is (supportive, neutral, un-
supportive)? How about the at-
titude of your own parents (and
husband, if married)?
Do you consider yourself a
How many hours are in your
average work week? How many
hours a week do your spend on
housework and related activities?
If the Jewish community con-
sulted you on the best way to in-
vest money and other resources to
support Jewish career women
which of the following priorities
would you suggest: (day care
centers, singles events, support

etc.)? r '
asks about the respondent's civic
and professional activities, her in-
volvement with the Jewish com-
munity, her child care ar-
rangements, her religious obaer-
early exposure to the Jewish
religion and community, and h-r
opinions on several feminist and
Jewish issues, and it closes with
an open-ended question asking for
"your feelings about being a
Jewish woman in the world of
work, your family, and the Jewish
"This is a pilot study in two
ways," says Dr. Rela Geffen Mon-
son, professor of sociolgy at Grata
College and research director of
the project. "First, it is a pioneer-
ing study: there has been no work
at all in this area before. Of course
the various surveys of managerial
women have included Jewish
women among their respondents,
but these investigations have not
asked about Jewish identity and
have not honed in on the special
areas we are looking at.
"We are trying to find out
whether the Jewish career
woman's profile looks like that of
other executive women, whether
being Jewish has anything to do
with her 'making it' in the
business world, whether she views
the Jewish community as a source
of support for herself, or a source
of problems."
"IT IS ALSO a pilot," con-
tinued Professor Monson, "in that
it is not a random sample of the
entire population of American
Jewish career women. At this mo-
ment it would be close to impossi-
ble, without absolutely enormous
financial resources, to do such a
random survey, and we know full
well that in our sample certain
groups will be underrepresented
and others overrepresented. "But
we think we will get some definite
impressions where previously
there were none at all, and we will
get a solid basis on which to build
future research."
To round out the study, said
Professor Monson, she will com-
pare its findings with what is
known about female executives in
general, and about male Jewish
executives, both of which groups
have been examined in several

TWO Volumes Probe Nazism, Gurion Justice Following Ras Burka Case
The Motes of Rovno. By Douglas
K. Huneke. New York: Dodd
Mead, 1985. 236 pp. $17.95.
Three roles were captured by
large numbers of people in the
Holocaust: Nazi murderer, victim,
and indifferent bystander. But
there was another role which sad-
ly and unhappily was filled by a
pitifully small number of people
the role of rescuer.
This book deals with one such
rescuer, Fritz Graebe, a non-
Jewish German who risked his life
to save Jews from destruction. He
was very similar to Oskar
Schindler, a German industrialist
who also saved Jews from the
Nazi death camps at the peril of
his own life. Thomas Keneally
wrote a fine book about Schindler,
called "Schindler's List." That
book received a laudatory review
in this column some time ago.
FRITZ GRAEBE was a con-
struction engineer who worked
for a German firm that had con-
tracts to build railroads, round-
houses, communication facilities
and other structures, especially in
the Ukraine. Many of his workers
were Jews, and Graebe was deep-
ly concerned about them. His con-
cern mounted when he witnessed
an "Action" in Rovno that
resulted in the vicious slaughter of
many innocent Jews.
With considerable bravado and
bravery, Graebe saved 120 of his
Jewish workers from the
mayhem. He led them to another
town, and for his heroic action, he
was nicknamed the "Moses of
Rovno." The atrocities which he
saw in Rovno, and the loss of
seven of his Jewish workers whom
he could not save, led Graebe to
promise himself that he would
never forget.
This Rovno pogrom took place
in July, 1942. For the rest of the
war and in the post-war trials of
nazi killers, Graebe kept his pro-
mise. At great personal sacrifice
and at great personal peril, he
rescued and protected Jews in his
employ. He forge>l papers, defied
the SS, deceived the Nazis and
engaged in acts of great daring.
His testimony in the Nuremberg
trials helped to convict several
German officials.
GRAEBE'S German neighbors
ostracized him and threatened his
life for his work at Nuremberg.
He was helped by the Joint
Distribution Committee to move
to the United States. Since 1948,
David Ben-Gurion
Graebe and his family have lived
in San Francisco. It was there
that he met Douglas K. Huneke, a
Presbyterian minister, who has
studied the Holocaust and who
has been especially interested in
the shamefully small number of
Huneke recorded Graebe's story
over a period of four years,
substantiating it by interviewing
Jews who were rescued by Graebe
and by inspecting records in Ger-
many and at Yad Vashem, the
Holocaust memorial and research
center in Jerusalem. The result of
his intensive labor is this ad-
mirable book which carefully and
skillfully recreates Graebe's
remarkable story.
Fritz Graebe has been recogniz-
ed as a "righteous Gentile" whose
name is inscribed on the "Avenue
of the Righteous" at Yad Vashem.
Huneke's excellent book proves
that Graebe is truly worthy of this

' Order' Members Found
Guilty by Seattle Jury
SEATTLE (JTA) Ten members of The Order, a
violent anti-Semitic and white supremacist group based in
the Northwest, were convicted last week of racketeering:
charges that included murder, armed robbery and
counterfeiting as part of their plot to kill Jews, deport non-
whites and overthrow the government. The verdict in the
trial, which began in September, was reached after the jury
deliberated for two weeks.
EACH OF THE nine men and one woman convicted of
violating the 1972 federal Racketeer Influenced and Cor-
rupt Organizations (RICO) Act was found guilty of at least
two offenses. The 10 who were on trial were among 23
members of The Order indicted in April on similar charges.
Eleven made plea-bargain arrangements and never stood
trial, another was convicted of the murder of a highway
patrol officer, and one is still at large.
The jury heard from 370 witnesses and received ap-
proximately 1,500 pieces of evidence to support the pro-
secution's contention that the purpose of The Order was to
overthrow the "Zionist-controlled government. The Order
was charged with the 1984 murder of Alan Berg, the
Jewish radio personality who was outspoken in his condem-
nation of anti-Semitic and rightwing individuals and
has already published two
volumes of his biography in
Hebrew, and we await their
translation. To whet our appetite
for what is to come, he presents
here a limited segment of his
larger work. In this sliver, he con-
centrates on the changing nature
of Ben-Gurion's attitudes toward
the Arabs.
He traces the development of
these attitudes over the years,
beginning in 1906 when Ben-
Gurion arrived in Palestine, up to
1939 when the Chamberlain
government issued its infamous
White Paper. That document
sharply restricted Jewish im-
migration into Palestine and pro-
vided for an independent Arab
state. It led to Ben-Gurion's
famous slogan, "we must assist
the British army as though there
were no world war."
SAVE FOR a brief and unsatis-
fying epilogue, the period from
1939 to the present is ignored.
The result is a truncated narrative
which frustrates readers who
know that Ben-Gurion continued
to help shape Israeli attitudes
toward the Arabs until he died in
1973. The omission by Teveth of
almost a quarter of a century is a
bewildering and baffling block
against gaining a true understan-
ding of Ben-Gurion's point pf view
on this important subject.
It is almost as though the author
wants us to wait for his full
biography in order for us to get
the entire picture, thus creating a
puzzle as to why he published this
fragment in the first place.
During his early years in
Palestine, Ben-Gurion recognized
that a conflict of interests existed
between Arabs and Jews.
However, he publicly professed
the view that the country could ac-
commodate both Arabs and Jews.
As a socialist, Ben-Gurion argued
for the liberation of Arab workers
but as^2ionist, he was determin-
ed toKftplish a Jewish homeland.
ween his Zionism and his socialism
eventually led Ben-Gurion to
acknowledge the need for force in
resolving the battle between Arab
and Jewish aspirations. This was a
major departure from his earlier
view that cooperation was both
possible and desirable.
As he traces the modifications
in Ben-Gurion's stances, Teveth
implies that pragmatism con-
quered morality. He thus puts
himself squarely in the tradition of
revisionist historians who seek to
gain heed and notoriety for their
discordant and dissonant points of
view by putting forth strident and
sardonic opinions.
Instead of reading this condens-
ed abbreviation of Ben-Gurion's
posture on one issue, we should
patiently cool our heels until
Teveth's complete biography is

Israel's Ambassador to Egypt
Moshe Sasson has voiced his "con-
fidence in Egyptian justice"
following the handing down of a
life imprisonment sentence on the
Ras Burka killer, Suleiman
Sasson, in media interviews,
noted, too, with gratification that
in recent days the major Egyptian
media had conveyed to the public
in Egypt the full facts of the kill-
ing on Oct. 5 of seven Israeli holi-
day vacationers by Khafer, by a
soldier stationed near Ras Burka
on the Sinai coast.
Sasson's comments were ex-
coriated, however, by a bereaved
parent Reuven Baum, whose
10-year-old son, Amir, bled to
death after being hit by a bullet
from Khater's gun. Baum has ac-
cused the Ambassador of "derelic-
tion of duty" because of Sasson's
public acceptance of the Egyptian
court's sentence as a satisfactory
expression of justice.
Baum said that since Egyptian
law provided for a heavier
sentence the life imprisonment
punishment could not be said as
Sasson had said to have fully ex-
pressed justice. Baum's
dissatisfaction over the sentence
was echoed by other bereaved
parents, too.
The demand that other Egyp-
tian personnel now be examined
regarding their behavior was voic-
ed by Doveish Knesset member
Yossi Sarid, in a cable to the
Egyptian government. Sarid, of
the Citizens Rights Movement,
called for a commission of inquiry
to study the denial of prompt
medical aid to the victims.

differ significantly from those of

A Visit to 'Martin's' Atlanta
Mr. Zakim, director of the Anti-
Defamation League's New
England regional office, accom-
panied an ADL mission to Israel
for black leaders in 1984. This ac-
count tells of his subsequent visit
to a black church in Atlanta at the
invitation of its minister, one of
the participants in the mission.
The pews at St. Peter's Baptist
Church in Atlanta were slowly fill-
ing for the Sunday service. The
sounds of an old Southern Baptist
pre-service prayer session a
ritual no longer practiced in Nor-
thern black churches seemed as
individualistic and as unstruc-
tured as any davening I'd ever
heard. There was a sense of ex-
pectation that rolled with each un-
coordinated verse. Something
special was going to happen and
the congregants were getting
themselves ready.
I was at St. Peter's at the invita-
tion of its pastor, the Rev.
Howard Creecy, Jr., as a followup
to ADL's black leadership mission
to Israel last September. While
trips to Israel have special mean-
ing for every visitor, this one was
particularly significant. The group
of 19 blacks and Jews from seven
major American cities were all in-
dependent, young community
leaders, most meeting each other
for the first time. Among those
representing ADL were Donald
Mintz of New Orleans, a member
of ADL's National Executive
Committee, and myself.
Though planned well before the
controversy that erupted over
Jesse Jackson's campaign rhetoric
and the virulent anti-Semitism of
Minister Louis Parrakhan, the
mission went with the heavy addi-
tional burden of that crisis.
While the trip's positive purpose
was to increase understanding of
one another as well as the black
community's understanding of the
importance of Israel, we did not
go under the illusion that we could
resolve all the issues, and we did
not. But, perhaps more important,
we left as strangers and returned
as friends. Differences of opinion
were confronted, common con-
cerns were explored, the dif-
ferences in our experiences, our
history and our agenda were more
clearly understood.
Por the Jews, visits to both
Jewish and Christian sites with
our new friends, some of them
clergy, offered a revealing new
spiritual twist. For the black
visitors, this first trip to the land
of the Bible brought new meaning
to theology rooted in the Old
While in Jerusalem, Rev.
Creecy had told me that the chan-
ting by the Hassidim at the
Western Wall on Shabbat remind-
ed him of his church on Sunday
mornings. I was to discover that
similarity for myself.
Now, I was an honored guest in
"Black Atlanta." I stayed at
Pabcals, a hotel where blacks and
whites had met, conversed, and
coordinated the protests of the
civil rights movement initiated by
the Southern Christian Leader-
ship Conference under Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Pascals still re-
mains the heart of Atlanta.

New Alcohol Treatment
Program Offered At USF
There is a new development in
the treatment of alcoholics,
thanks to a University of South
Florida program begun by
psychologist Mark Goldman.
Goldman has received a
$120,000 grant for the National
Institute of Alcohol Abuse and
Alcoholism to investigate new
methods for facilitating the
recovery process of alcoholics who
have stopped drinking. Some of
this research is currently under-
way at the Tampa Veterans Ad-
ministration Hospital.
"It's been known for some time
that the thinking processes of
alcoholics in treatment is impaired
when they stop drinking," he said.
"We are using methods of restor-
ing the thinking process to a level
where people can resume their
normal lives."
Goldman, who came to USF in
August to develop an alcohol
research center similar to the one
he started at Wayne State Univer-
sity in Detroit, said alcohol is toxic
and kills brain cells.
"A good way to do your brain in
is to binge on weekends," he said.
"Significant amounts of alcohol
can cause problems in the nervous
system. Heavy social drinking can
impair thinking processes not only
during drinking, but there can be
a lasting effect even after sober-
ing up."
The psychologist said his treat-
ment techniques will teach people
to exercise their minds just as a
person would strenghten muscles
by working out.
He anticipates no lack of
clientele since there are between
10 million and 12 million alcoholics
in the United States. Most have a
family and are executives or
businessmen or wives, Goldman
The death of a colleague in an
accident caused by an alcoholic
driver left him with a permanent
impression about the disease
when he was a beginning faculty
member at Wayne State in 1975.
"Alcohoism ranks among the
most serious problems in society
today," Goldman said.
Some facts according to
Goldman : The disease directly af-
fects up to 50 million people every
day through stress impaired on
family members. Absenteeism
and alcohol treatment costs in-
dustry billions of dollars per year.
About 50 percent of fatal ac-
cidents involve one or both drivers
drinking. After dark that figure is
90 percent. In 50 percent of the
murders in the United States, the
killer has been drinking.
Goldman would like to start a
program in 1986 at USF to
change the attitudes of young
children about drinking. He
started a three-year program at
Wayne State in 1984 called
"Children's and Adolescents Ex-
pectancies About Alcohol."
"Children as young as grade
three already have been taught by
society through parents, teachers,
advertising, movies and TV all the
rewards one can expect from
drinking alcohol," he said.
"Studies show that 100 percent of
kids by the teenage years have fix-
ed beliefs what alcohol does for
you. It seems to make you relax-
ed, sexy, socially outgoing,
mature, assertive.
"Other evidence suggests these
beliefs may influence how we
behave when we drink just as
much as the chemical components
of alcohol," Goldman said.
"Hence, a young person may act
out a self-fulfilling prophecy."
The USF researcher said that if
a 16-year-old never knew about
alcohol and was giving it a try, it
most likely would be an unplea-
sant experience.
"Our goal is to change the
beliefs kids hold at a young
enough age to lower the risk for a
potential drinking problem. If we
can get kids not to expect good
results from alcohol, they
wouldn't be as likely to go at it like
they do."

day and we were there, too. The
timeless sadness left by Dr. King's
murder hung over the room.
The aura of Bethlehem and
Jerusalem permeated the old gym
that is now St. Peter's Baptist
Church. The room was nearly fill-
ed when we were escorted to our
seats at the front and Rev. Creecy
strode to the pulpit. The uneven
davening had been replaced by the
flowing verses of "Amazing
Grace" and the voices of the
children's choir singing "Jacob's
Ladder." Collection baskets were
passed three times once for the
hungry, once for the poor and
once for the church. Each time,
the cash and coins overflowed.
The gathering, numbering some
500, was all black except for me,
Daniel Rothenberg of Boston, who
had also represented ADL on the
Israel trip, and his wife.
Rev. Creecy called all the
children, some 60 of them, both in
the choir and in the congregation,
to the pulpit where he personally
greeted, hugged and blessed
every one. Then the adults came
forward to exchange greetings
with their pastor and his wife.
With the congregation seated,
Rev. Creecy talked of his trip to
Israel, his visit to the Mount
where Jesus preached, about em-
barking as blacks and Jews and
returning as friends who just hap
pened to be blacks and Jews.
Then he began to "hoop" a
term used to describe a preacher
pulling the souls of everyone in
the church together. As one, they
ascend to spiritual heights that
echo his prayers, his words and his
Not everyone can hoop. It takes
practice, we were told, and it
takes natural skills said to be
Then Rev. Creecy turned the
pulpit over to me. I told of our trip
and the meaning of Israel to Jews.
I spoke of the anguish of the
Holocaust and what might have
been, had Jews been able to
return to Zion earlier. And I spoke
of the miracle of the Ethiopian
Jews reaching freedom from
persecution, disease and starva-
tion because Israel is there for
them. I reminded my listeners
that there are those who know
Louis Farrakhan and Meir
Kahane better than they know Dr.
King or Rabbi Abraham Joshua
Heschel. I stressed the impor-
tance of confronting the ex-
tremists within both our com-
munities lest we become no better
than those who are against us.
I finished my sermon with the
traditional Hebrew Shehechyanu
blessing and each and every per-
son in the congregation thanked
me, embraced me, urged me to
"keep on keeping on." And I had
the feeling that these wonderful
people who welcomed me so
warmly and were so interested in
what I had to say, have little time
for the Farrakhans who trade in
bitter scapegoating and empty
rhetoric. The ADL mission to
Israel had brought us together,
had brought a bit of Bethlehem
and Jerusalem to a Baptist church
in Atlanta. And on that splendid
Sunday morning, we found that
we had come even closer while
recognizing there was still some
distance to go.

Reaganites Mum
Whether They'll Use Force
Friday, January 10, 1986/The Jewiah Floridian of Tampa Page 7
Press Freedom in Israel
Laws Drafted to Curtail
The Reagan Administra-
tion continues to leave
unanswered whether the
U.S. plans to use force
either by itself or in
cooperation with Israel
against those responsible
for the terrorist attacks at
the Rome and Vienna air-
ports Dec. 27.
State Department deputy
spokesman Charles Redman
would neither "confirm or deny"
any "contingency plans" the U.S.
might have for military action,
despite statements by Israeli of-
ficials that Israel should not have
to be the only country responding
with force to terrorism.
HOWEVER, Redman stressed
that in general, for the response
to terrorism "to be effective" it
should "best be undertaken by the
international community." He
said this can be done on a
bilateral, multinational, regional
or international basis.
But Redman said that the
"culprits are clear" in the attacks
on the El Al counters at the Rome
and Vienna airports in which 19
died and more than 100 were
wounded. He reiterated that the
atrocity was carried out by the
Abu Nidal group which, he said,
has long had the backing of Libya,
including this latest terrorist act.
Asked about the warning by Li-
byan leader Muammar Khadafy
that if there is either American or
Israeli retaliation, Americans will
be endangered, "even in their own

streets," Redman replied, "We
particularly abhor Khadafy mak-

slaughter of innocent men,
women and children." He said
Khadafy'8 statement "was not
worthy of being dignified by
KHADAFY, in a press con-
ference with Western reporters,
justified the airport attacks as
"revenge" for Israel's air raid on
Palestine Liberation Organization
headquarters near Tunis Oct. 1.
But Redman continued to urge
other countries to join the U.S. in
diplomatic and economic sanc-
tions against Libya. He said the
U.S. has been discussing this with
Western European and Middle
Eastern countries all of which "
are the victims and targets of
He said U.S. sanctions against
Libya have had effect but needs
other countries to join in to fully
work. He noted that there are
now only 1,500 Americans in
Libya as compared to 6,000 before
December 10,1981 when the U.S.
made American passports invalid
for travel to Libya. He said the
U.S. government has continued to
talk to American companies doing
bisuness in Libya to try to per-
suade them to stop.
ISRAEL IS most concerned,
according to Rabin, about Syria's
continued role as a "spoiler" of
any viable peace process which
might develop in the region.
"I believe the purpose of Syrian
policy is to prevent a repetition of
what President (Anwar) Sadat of
Egypt did. The only way which
has proven effective to bring
about peace between an Arab
country and Israel is by a
bilateral, direct negotiation for
peace," the Defense Minister said.
"Any attempt to try to achieve,
the beautiful word of 'comprehen-
sive' peace by bringing toether all
the Arab countries, all the Arab
organizations, and especially
under a full-fledged international
peace conference co-chaired by
the Soviet Union and the United
States, will lead nowhere," Rabin
Attorney General Yitzhak
Zamir disclosed to a shocked
and outraged audience of jour-
nalists that certain govern-
ment quarters have drafted
draconian laws which would
severely curtail freedom of the
press if they were ever to be
The Attorney General made
it clear that he was not referr-
ing to the Justice Ministry,
where he himself is the senior
official in charge of drafting
laws. He spoke in Tel Aviv at a
meeting honoring Yehoshua
Rotenshtreich, president of
the Israel Press Council, on
the occasion of his 75th
Zamir said he was as much
appalled as the journalists by
the measures contemplated,
which would establish a
system of licensing for jour-
nalists, just as doctors and
lawyers require a state license
to practice. He said that some
politicians who believe they
were hurt by the media sup-
port the proposed measures as
a way to strike back.
Zamir also noted that of late,
the news media has become in-
creasingly unpopular with
large segments of the public.
He indicated that the looming
danger of restrictive measures
should prompt the media to
voluntarily lighten enforce-
ment of its own rules of jour-
nalistic ethics.
The draft bill to which Zamir
referred is far more restrictive
than the bill presently under
consideration by the Cabinet
which would forbid the media
from publishing the name of a
suspect until the person has
been formally charged with an
offense. "There are values of
freedom of the press and of the
public's right to know," Zamir
said, "but they cannot sup-
plant the right of an individual
who stands defenseless

Kahane: Not Just
Israel's Problem
Editor's Note: Harry Wall is
director of the Anti-Defamation
League's Israel'Office in
For all his notoriety, Rabbi Meir
Kahane does not represent a
threat to Israeli democracy. Nor is
there any prospect of his ever
coming to power. Nonetheless,
Kahane's movement dedicated
to the expulsion of Israel's Arabs
and the imposition of religious
fundamentalism is a disturbing
force that feeds off the anxieties
of a beleaguered people. Israel has
awakened, however belatedly, to
the danger of Kahanism. The
United States and particularly
American Jewry, also have an im-
portant stake in seeing this mili-
tant fanaticism halted.
Kahane's election to the
Knesset in July, 1984, transform-
ed him overnight from a social
misfit into a dangerous
demagogue, one whose racist ran-
tings no longer could be ignored.
Not that the votes of 25,000
Israelis, 1.2 percent of the elec-
torate, provided any mandate for
Kahane's militant jingoism. But
the rabbi from Brooklyn finally
managed to gain the platform and
pretense to legitimacy that he so
zealously pursued.
In recent months, Kahane has
received international attention
far out of proportion to his real
strength. A self-proclaimed ex-
pert at manipulating the media,
Kahane's flamboyance, violent
rhethoric and staged antics have
played well to both the Israeli and
foreign press, with the inevitable
effect of promoting his cause.
Following his election to the
Knesset last year, Kahane told a
packed press conference in
Jerusalem, "You have made me
ten times bigger than I am .. .
and I'm going to drive this coun-
try crazy."
While he has not driven Israel
crazy, Kahane and his followers
have created serious disturbances
to public order. They have menac-
ed local Arab villages, which have
lived in peace in Israel since the
State's birth, by staging well-
publicized Kach rallies and chan-
ting, "Arab dogs, out!" Kahane
takes blatant advantage of the
democratic process that he so
abhors, i.e. freedom of speech and
parliamentary immunity, to ad-
vance his politics of fear and
Public opinion surveys show
Kahane's Kach party receiving
nine or ten Knesset seats if elec-
tions were held now. However,
polls in Israel are more indicative
of mood swings and temporary
reactions to personal or national
crises than they are of actual
strength at the ballot box. Far
more attractive personalities such
as Moshe Dayan and Ezer Weiz-
mann were misled by over-
optimistic polls for their political
movements that actually received
only marginal electoral support.
Nevertheless, Kahane and his
movement constitute a disturbing
force that should not be minimiz-
ed. He is the expression of a
radically nationalistic right wing
in Israel taken to its most
dangerous end. His brand of false
messianism vowing to "purify"
Israel by ridding it of Arabs and
establishing a society governed
exclusively by Torah law ap-
peals to a growing sement of Or-
thodox and ultra-nationalist Jews.
His simplistic, get-tough message
strikes a responsive chord among
some Israelis, exhausted by war
and economic crises and craving
an easy way out.
Most disturbing is the growing
support for Kahane found among
the nation's youth. A poll, con-
ducted by the Van Leer Jerusalem
Foundation among 15 to 18 years
old, found that some 42 percent
said they back Kahane's doctrines
and 11 percent said they would
vote for him in an election.
What the polls don't show,
however, is how ill-informed the
Israeli public is of Kahane's plat-
USY Tzedakah Fund Raises Over $153,000
Members of United Synagogue
Youth raised over $153,000 for
their Tikun Olam (Building A Bet-
ter World) Tzedakah Program in
1984-85. In announcing the
results of the 1984-85 Campaign,
Jules Gutin, director of the pro-
gram, emphasized the key role
USY members play in all aspects
of the program. He emphasized
that the Tikun Olam Program is
unique in that the high school
students make all of the decisions
regarding the allocation of funds
and the structure of the program.
Under the current structure of
the program, 30 percent of the
funds collected are distributed to
USY'ers in need of financial aid
for participation in USY Israel
Pilgrimage, the USY on Wheels
Cross Country Tour, and the
Nativ USY Year Program in
Israel. In 1985 over $45,000 in
scholarships were distributed on a
regional basis to USY members in
need of such assistance. The
guidelines for the distribution of
these scholarships were determin-
ed by the USY'ers themselves.
An additional 30 percent of the
funds are distributed to Conser-
vative Movement Programs in
Israel. As in the past, these funds
were distributed to Noar
Mesorati, USY's sister organiza-
tion in Israel, and for scholarships
for Rabbinical Students of the
Jewish Theological Seminary of
America who spend the year stu-
dying at the Seminar's Jerusalem
Campus at Neve Schechter. In the
coming year some of these funds
will also be used for a special
outreach program at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem spon-
sored by the Jerusalem Center for
Conservative Judaism. The
operating expenses of the Tikun
Olam Program also come from the
The final 40 percent is divided
amongst a list of 60 Jewish
Organizations and institutions
throughout the world. In order to
be included on this list, the reci-
pient must be approved by a com-
mittee of USY Board Members
from all parts of North America.
Every USY chapter has the right
to allocate 40 percent of its con-
tribution to one or more of these
recipients. Local needs are also
emphasized. As a result, a chapter
may choose to allocate funds to a
local Jewish organization or in-
stitution in need of their support.
Close to $10,000 was allocated
by the USY'ers in 1984-85 to aid
in the rescue and resettlement of
Ethiopian Jews. Another major
recipient was Maon Latinok, a
residential facility for children
with Down's Syndrome, located in
Ramat Gan.
David Kaye, of Westlake
Village, California, the USY
Social Action/Tikun Olam Vice
President emphasized the sense of
purpose with which the USY
members approach their
Tzedakah Program. "When the
allocations Committee meets each
fall, they grapple with serious
questions of Tzedakah priorities
as they distribute thousands of
dollars to those in need."
David Stern, of Atlanta, Ga., In-
ternational USY President, was
proud of USY's accomplishments
through its Tzedakah Program.
"Since 1956 when USY first em-
barked upon it's Tzedakah efforts,
USY members have raised over
$1.8 million for Tzedakah. It's
quite possible that we will reach
the $2 million mark at the conclu-
sion of 1986." Stern went on to
emphasize the educational value
of the Tzedakah Program which
publishes a broad variety of educa-
tional materials related to the
Jewish value of Tzedakah.
USY is the high school affiliate
of the United Synagogue of
America. Founded in 1951, it in-
cludes over 20,000 members in
Conservative synagogues
throughout North America. The
director of USY is Rabbi Paul
Freedman, who served as USY's
first president in 1951.
Former President Carter
To Speak At USF Jan. 15
Former President Jimmy
Carter will speak at the Universi-
ty of South Florida at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, Jan. 15, in the Sun
Dome on the Tampa campus. He
will discuss "U.S. Foreign Policy
from Carter to Reagan."
Carter was President from 1977
to 1981. Best known for his
foreign policy achievements, he
accomplished the Camp David ac-
cords leading to the peace treaty
between Egypt and Israel in 1979.
His administration established
diplomatic relations with the Peo-
ple's Republic of China, the Salt II
treaty with the Soviet Union and
the Panama Canal treaties.
On the domestic side his ad-
ministration formed the Depart-
ments of Energy and Education,
brought about deregulation in
energy, transportation, commerce
and finance and passed major en-
vironm.ental protection
When he left the White House,
Carter returned to Plains Ga.,
where he was born. In 1982 he
became University Distinguished
Professor at Emory University in
Atlanta. He also founded the
Carter Center of Emory Universi-
ty, a policy center for addressing
vital world issues through study
and consultation.
Since 1975 he has written four
books, including his
autobiography, "Why Not the
Best?" In addition to developing
his future presidential library and
museum, he has continued to
travel and speak throughout the
world. He is active in Habitat for
Humanity, a non-profit organiza-
tion that helps build homes for the
needy in the United States and in
underdeveloped countries.
General admission tickets for
the speech are $5 and are for sale
at all Select-A-Seat outlets. USF
students will be admitted fr*>
form and the dangerous implica-
tions of his views for Jews
everywhere. A new book publish-
ed in Hebrew, Heil Kahane by
Yair Kotler, draws a chilling com-
fiarison between Kahane's
egislative proposals in the
Knesset and the Nazis'
Nuremberg laws directed against
German Jews. Like Hitler's
Reich, Kahane's fascist state
would ban mixed marriages bet-
ween Jew and Gentile, impose
severer penalties against any Jew
engaged in personal relations with
a non-Jew and enforce segrega-
tion of schools, universities,
beaches, community centers, etc.
Moreover, Kahane would deny
citizenship to Israeli Arabs as well
as their right to hold government
jobs and to live in Jerusalem.
Kahane has made inroads, par-
ticularly among the young, by of-
fering a quick fix to some very
complex problems. Four decades
of war and political ostracism
have made many Israelis skeptical
of ever reaching a solution to the
Middle East conflict. With the ex-
ception of Egypt, Israel is encircl-
ed by a wall of Arab rejectionism
which has hardened, worried and
frustrated many Israelis.
Reinforcing these emotions is a
frightening wave of terrorism
against Israel. The Shiite suicide
attacks in Lebanon showed a new
level of Arab fanaticism. Closer to
home, a dozen Israeli civilians
were brutally murdered last year
by local Palestinian Arabs. In the
past, terror was faceless or
foreign bombs in bus depots,
infiltrators and rockets across the
borders. Recently, terror assumed
a shockingly personal form.
Israel's economic crisis has plac-
ed new strains on a heavily-
burdened society. Not surprising-
ly, high inflation, austerity and
rising unemployment have the
potential to make radical and
simplistic dogma seem attractive.
Meir Kahane has exploited
these tragedies by trying to whip
a traumatized populace into a
frenzy of Arab hatred. That he has
had very limited political success
is a tribute to the basic decency of
most Israelis and the nation's
vibrant democratic institutions. It
is, however, troubling that
Kahane's xenophobic views are
shared by more than just the fr-
inge elements of Israeli society.
Meir Kahane neither represents
Israeli policy nor does he serve
Jewish interests. Rather, he plays
into the hands of Arab extremists
who are out to wreck any
negotiated settlement to the
Arab-Israeli conflict and who find
in Kahanism a pretext for doing
Israel no longer minimizes this
right wing fanaticsm and has
taken commendable action to
squelch it. The Knesset this year
passed legislation banning racist
parties from participating in
parliamentary elections. Another
bill, now under consideration,
would make racial incitement a
felony. These parliamentary
moves were taken with Kahane in
mind and, in all likelihood, will bar
him from serving again in the
Israeli schools are including cur-
ricula programs stressing
pluralism and tolerance. The local
media, alert to Kahane's
attention-grabing antics, have
moderated their coverage of him.
And Israel's elected leaders of the
left and the right have publicly de-
nounced Kahane and his doctrines
and have spurned him politically.
American Jewry also has a
stake in stamping out Kahanism.
First, because Kahane's views are
a distortion of Judaism its
humanism and respect for law
and a perversion of the Zionist
ideal of Jews and Arabs living
together in the Land of Israel. Se-
cond, he provides a pretext for
anti-Semitism and for the canard
that Zionism is racism. Lastly, the
spread of Kahane's extremist
views and actions could under-
mine Israel's status as a
democratic ally in the eyes of
many of its American supporters.
The leadership of American
Jewry has discredited the
Brooklyn-born rabbi in his native
land and continues to rebuke his
racist activity in Israel. The com-
mitment to democratic pluralism
and civil rights runs deep in
American Jewry.
The Anti-Defamation League,
through its Jerusalem office, has
taken steps designed to help
Israel stem the growth of
Kahanism. ADL has agreed to
produce a series of public-service
television spots against prejudice
and racism, patterned after those
the League has done in the United
States using entertainers and
sports figures, which will be aired
at prime time on Israel television.
The League also will help aug-
ment and design curricula, par-
ticularly for vocational schools
emphasizing tolerance and
pluralism. The Anti-Defamation
League also underwrote the pro-
duction of a film on stereotypes
and misconception affecting Arab
and Jewish teenagers.
Finally, the United States has a
responsibility toward the future of
its only democratic and reliable al-
ly in the Middle East. Kahanism is
fostered by a climate of insecurity
and isolation. By furnishing the
most sophisticated weaponry to
the Arab arsenal and by pressing
Israel to acquiese to ill-conceived
diplomatic efforts, Washington
only exacerbates the conditions
that endangered Kahane's rise.
Conversely, by standing firm in its
support for Israel, the U.S. helps
to nourish the Israeli public's
sense of security and rejection of

Peres Says
Nations Must Join Non-Military Action
U.S. Leaders Seek Global
Action for Kidnapped Jews
Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres this week, urged
countries to join together in
taking non-military action
against countries that har-
bor terrorists.
"I would strongly recommend
that collective measures be taken
against host countries," Peres
said on ABC-TV's "This Week
with David Brinkley." "I am
referring first and mainly to
economic, political and other sanc-
tions against this sort of country."
But Peres stressed that there
can be no "immunity" for ter-
rorists or their bases. He noted
that when Israel bombed the
Palestine Liberation Organization
headquarters in Tunisia, it was
not attacking Tunisia, which he
called a "moderate" country, but
was striking at an "extra-
territorial base."
PERES' CALL for political and
economic sanctions seemed to be
in line with the Reagan Ad-
ministration's efforts to get the
West European countries to join
in imposing economic sanctions on
Libya in the wake of the terrorist
attacks on the El Al counters at
the Rome and Vienna airports
Dec. 27.
Robert McFarlane, who recent-
ly left the post as President
Reagan's National Security Ad-
visor, appearing on the same ABC
program, said the U.S. has been
urging such action from the Euro-
peans since 1981. He said collec-
tive action should be taken before
more violent means are tried. He
suggested that Europeans could
start by bringing their people out
of Libya and then beginning to cut
trade with the Libyans.
Peres said that "Europe is lear-
ning the hard way that something
must be done and undoubtedly
that Libya is the most evil country
in many respects and surely when
it comes to terrorism."
MEANWHILE, Peres denied
that the U.S. has pressured Israel
either to retaliate or not to
retaliate against those responsible
for the airport atrocities. He said
the U.S. has taken a "responsible
and strong position."
Muammar Khadafy
The Israeli Premier said this has
resulted in Libyan leader Muam-
mar Khadafy backing down from
his original position of strongly
supporting the terrorist attacks.
He said Khadafy, who is "heroic
in his speeches and irresponsible
in his killings," is now frightened
of what may happen. "But let him
be scared instead of other people
being frightened," Peres said.
This assessment seemed to be
brought out by Khadafy himself
who backed off from a scheduled
appearance Sunday on NBC-TV's
"Meet the Press." Instead,
reporters from the U.S. television
networks were taken to a Libyan
farm where Khadafy held a news
conference from the seat of a
HE SAID while it would not be
legal for him to carry out attacks
such as at the Rome and Vienna
airports, "it may be so" for the
Palestinians who, he said, were
acting the same way as American
colonialists did against the
Khadafy said that while he has
met this year with Abu Nidal, the
Palestinian terrorist leader believ-
ed responsible for the Vienna and
Rome atrocities, Abu Nidal does
not live in Libya nor has bases
there. He said he did not know
where Abu Nidal was.
However, Peres, saying lying
was easy for Khadafy, declared
that Abu Nidal is "right now in
Libya" and has his base in Libya.
He rejected a report in the Lon-
don Sunday Times which claimed
that Israeli sources said Abu Nidal
was dying of liver cancer and the
terrorist attacks were actually
carried out by Libyan and Syrian
But Peres seemed more
cautious in implicating Syria in
the terrorist attacks. "Syria is
more careful," he noted. But he
warned that If "Syria will not
cooperate more clearly to prevent
terrorism in the world" then it
too, should be considered as a host
country for terrorism.
Peres was also cautiously op-
timistic about Syria's withdrawal
of the SAM-6 and SAM-8 anti-
aircraft missiles from the
Lebanese border, although he
noted that the SAM-2 missiles
were still there. He said he believ-
ed there is a need to "de-escalate
in our rhetoric" in order to
"return to a status quo ante so as
to keep a very complicated co-
existence" in that area.
Odessa Hebrew Teacher
Given Exit Visa
NEW YORK (JTA) Yoakov Mesh, a 33-year-old
Jewish activist and Hebrew teacher in Odessa, has received
permission to leave for Israel, the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported.
Mesh, who first applied to leave the Soviet Union in 1977,
will go to Israel with his nine-year-old son Marat and wife
A former boxer in the Soviet Army, Mesh has been refus-
ed permission to leave, obstensibly for "security reasons"
because of his army service, the NCSJ reported.

Leaders of three national
Jewish organizations have
called for swift, concerted
action by the world com-
munity to combat global ter-
rorism and specifically to
try to save the lives of
Beirut Jews kidnapped by a
Moslem extremist group
last March 29 and now being
systematically murdered by
their abductors.
The latest call for international
cooperation against terrorists by
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, the American Jewish
Committee and the American
Jewish Congress was prompted
by the discovery on Jan. 1 of the
body of Isaac Tarrah, 63, one of
four Jews seized by a group call-
ing itself "The Organization of the
Oppressed of the World." He was
the second murder victim. The
first, Haim Cohen Halala, was
found dead in Beirut on Dec. 25.
IN EACH CASE, the discovery
of the bodies was followed by an
announcement by the killers that
they were "executed" in revenge
for the killing of Shiite Moslems in
south Lebanon by the Israel-
backed South Lebanon Army
Abraham Foxman, associate na-
tional director of the ADL and
head of its International Affairs
Division, sent a telegram to
United Nations Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar last week,
urging immediate international
action to save the kidnapped Jews
still alive.
"The murder of a second
Lebanese Jew in Lebanon within a
week heightens the urgency for
international action," Foxman's
message said. "We urge you to
call on member nations, par-
ticularly Syria and Iran, to use
their influence with the Shiites in
Lebanon. We further urge that
you use your influence with
Islamic and other religious leaders
to bring about the release of those
Jews still being held. In light of
this week's tragic events, it is
clear that time is of the essence."
DAVID GORDIS, executive
vice president of the American
Jewish Committee, expressed "its
profound sorrow and outrage at
the news of the cruel and brutal
execution" of Terrah, a retired
professor of mathematics. He
pointed out that neither Tarrah
nor Halala, a 39-year-old Beirut
businessman, were "involved in
any way in domestic Lebanese
politics or in the Arab-Israel
"Despite this latest outrage, the
American Jewish Committee will
not be deterred from its ongoing
efforts to secure the release of the
remaining Lebanese Jewish
hostages," Gordis said. "We once
again implore the nations of the
world to make a concerted effort
to combat international terrorism,
as they have unanimously pledged
to do in the United Nations."
Henry Siegman, executive
director of the American Jewish
Congress, also expressed "horror
and anger at the barbaric murder
of Isaac Tarrah ... by Moslem
fundamentalist killers." He noted,
"This latest outrage is chillingly
reminiscent of the ruthless and
senseless murder of wheelchair-
bound Leon Klinghoffer, an
American Jew, by the Achille
Lauro terrorists and the setting
apart of the Jewish passengers
during the hijacking of the TWA
airliner last June."

To Extra-Special Event
Watch Itzhak Perlman
rehearse! No, it can't be possible!
Yes, it can! And indeed it will
become a reality for 50 children
from the Hillel School of Tampa.
The children of the school in-
vited Perlman to visit them when
he came to Tampa to perform this
Winter. Perlman graciously
replied to their invitation explain-
ing that he did not have enough
time to visit the school since he
would only be in the Tampa Bay
area for the day of the perfor-
mance. He then extended an in-
vitation to the children to come to
his rehearsal with the Florida Or-
chestra on Jan. 14 at Ruth Eckerd

that the students met was Isaak
Tavior, an internationally
renowned pianist. In December,
Alice Novick, a local painter, met
with the children to discuss her
work. Now the children will have
the unique opportunity to watch
and communicate with Itzhak
Perlman, the internationally
famous violinist. i

of Anne Frank", Eve Pincus, who
is a freshman at USF and the win-
ner of the Shimberg Scholarship

special visit to Hillel to talk with
the children about her acting
career. Dr. David Fendrick is
planning to discuss with the Hillel
students the many aspects of his
multi-faceted career.
The personal contact between
the artists and the students should
provide them with an opportunity
to learn about the demands and
requirements of careers in the
