Page 4 The Jewish Floridian of Tampa/Friday, February 5, 1988
Background On Israeli Rule In Gaza
The Department of Information of
the World Zionist Organization
hat prepared a backgrounder for
the Jeivish Floridian to share with
its readers. It is hoped that
critical issue* involved in the pre-
sent situation in Israel will be
1. The disturbances in the Gaza
District and in Judea-Samaria:
(the West Bank) must be examin-
ed in the context of the overall
Middle East situation.
A. There is an undeniable feel-
ing of frustration among the local
population over the apparent lack
of progress in the political pro-
cess. The strain caused by absence
of political negotiations creates an
atmosphere conductive to incite-
ment and agitation.
B. The PLO has taken full ad-
vantage of this feeling of frustra-
tion to fan old hatreds and pre-
judices among the Palestinian
Arabs. They have threatened,
bribed and incited youngsters,
anywhere from the age of five, in
Gaza and Judea-Samaria to
disrupt normal life in the Israeli-
C. The PLO is extremely upset
by two recent summits, in Aminan
and Washington, where the Iraq-
Iran conflict took top priority over
the Palestinian issue as the main
threat in the Middle East.
D. There is resentment by PLO
activists, in and out of the ter-
ritories, of their declining in-
fluence in recent months. Incite-
ment of disorder and rioting is a
way to regain their prominence
and to once again gain a place in
the public eye.
E. There are signs of en-
couragement and instigation on
the part of Iran and Syria, of ter-
rorist activities designed to re-
establish the conflict with Israel
as the main focus of the Arab
1. A terrorist hang glider
penetrated Israel's northern
security zone killing six Israeli
2. The Iranian backed Hezbollah
accelerated its activity on the
Lebanese border
3. PLO incitement rose in
Judea, Samaria and the Gaza
4. An Israeli reserve soldier (a
member of a peacenik kibbutz)
was murdered in Gaza
F. Disturbances of this sort
generally increase in frequency
during certain periods. November
usually sees an increase of
militance having to do with the
Balfour Declaration (Nov. 2) and
the 1947 UN resolution (Nov. 29).
This November was also the 10th
anniversary of Sadat's visit to
Jerusalem which is the perfect ex-
ample of the peace process so
adamantly rejected by many of
the protestors.
G. The Palestinian Arabs are
angry at other Arabs who they
feel abandoned and rejected them
and their plight.
1. The first pretext for the Arab
riots was the action of an Israeli
security patrol's interception of a
carload of heavily armed Arab ter-
rorists en route to Israel via the
Gaza district. The car was ordered
to stop and, when failing to do so,
fire was opened and three of the
car's occupants were lolled.
2. The tension in the area was
further exacerbated when a few
days later, in the refugee camp of
Jibla in Gaza, four residents were
killed when an Israeli automobile
collided with an Arab car. This
created a prime opportunity for
I the PLO and other Muslim fun-
damentalists to inflame emotions
and incite violence. The in-
stigators maintained that the acci-
dent was engineered as a
deliberate action to avenge the
earlier murder-by-stabbing of an
Israeli reserve soldier in Gaza. (A
subsequent police investigation of
the accident has disclosed there
was no connection at all between
the Jewish driver involved in the
fatal accident and the victim of
the earlier slaying. The Jewish
driver has been arrested for his
role in the accident.).
S. Messages of support were
showered on the rioters in Gaza
from local fundamentalists, ter-
rorist radio stations from abroad,
and even a call from Yasser
Arafat to residents of Judea and
Samaria to follow the example of
their brothers in Gaza.
4. Incidents began occurring in
other places throughout Gaza,
Judea and Samaria, initiated by
PLO supporters, in "solidarity"
with the residents of Jibla.
5. Threats, bribes and force are
used by the instigators to coerce
the people to join in the rioting,
for students to leave their
classrooms and demonstrate. The
objective is to incite violence
which would lead to confronta-
tion. The hopes were that this
would once again spark interna-
tional press coverage and
negative media for Israel as well
as sympathy for the "Palestinian
6. Most disturbances occur in or
near refugee camps, and at
schools. They are exacerbated by
stone throwing, burning tires to
block roads and stop traffic, and
the throwing of molotov cocktails
at cars and Israeli security forces.
7. It is a frequent practice for
agitators to enter hospital
grounds, take the corpses of vic-
tims of various clashes, and
parade them high in the air, fur-
ther inflaming passions.
8. In some cases, entrances to
clinics and hospitals where the
wounded are brought, were
blockaded, so as to prevent or
delay treatment. In order to fur-
ther stir up trouble, rumors are
then spread that Israeli security
forces have come to inhibit
medical care rather than the true
reason: to alleviate the situation
and attempt to save the lives of
the wounded.
9. A plethora of false rumors
and exaggerated reports are wide-
ly circulated about the number of
Arab wounded, and about actions
of the Israeli military. PLO ac-
tivists then see to it that these
rumors are spread in the streets
of other cities, and are widely
publicized in local and foreign
media once again giving the world
an extremely distorted picture of
the true situation.
10. In line with usual PLO prac-
tices, mosques and hospitals have
been used as fortresses and bases
for attacks on Israeli soldiers
engaged in dismantling illegal
roadblocks. Stones and other of-
fensive objects are also stored
here. This is done deliberately,
with the full knowledge that
Israeli soldiers will not attack
mosques or hospitals.
1. The top prority of Israel is to
put an end to the tragic loss of life
which is painful both to Jews and
Arabs, however Israel cannot
abandon its responsibility to main-
tain stability and enforce the law.
2. The response of Israel's arm-
ed forces and police to these at-
tacks have been incredibly
A. Security forces rely primari-
ly on non-lethal weapons such as
water cannons, tear gas and rub-
ber bullets.
B. If the above methods fail,
and the police or Israeli soldiers
find themselves in a life-
threatening, situation, they will
then open fire with live ammuni-
tion, as a last resort This is sub-
ject to strict rules involving due
warning, etc.
3. The following are Israel's
military initiatives:
A. Immediate action to restore
order at the scene, to stop the
violence and assaults.
B. Attempts to cordon off the
agitators, to punish them accor-
ding to the law, to try and restrict
the activity in some of the centers
of militancy; ie; dosing some
schools temporarily.
C. Contact is maintained with a
broad range of public figures both
in the Arab community and all
walks of life to restore calm, to
maintain peace and secure normal
life for the vast majority in the
community who deserve it.

root causes ol the problem, Israel
is faced with three major options:
A. Unilateral annexation of
Judea-Samaria and the Gaza
district. This option is unaccep-
table to Israel and the Arabs.
B. Unilateral Israeli withdrawal
entirely from these areas-without
peace, without negotiations,
without any parallel concessions
or even pledges from the Arab
side. Such a course would only be
rewarding terrorism and violence
and lead to even greater terrorist
activity, so that Israel's security
and very existence would be
C. To maintain the status quo
and leave the present situation un-
changed. This way the legal and
political status of the Palestinian
Arabs is kept open until a political
solution is found, through negotia-
tions, with Jordan and non-PLO
Palestinians in a Jordanian
framework. This is the option that
Israel has chosen.
2. Israel cannot abdicate its
responsibility to maintain public
order and safety, as well as to en-
force- the law, for the welfare of
both the Jew and the Arab, in the
area under its control.
Israel will not tolerate violence
and terror in the streets. It cannot
permit extremists and the
militants among the Arab com-
munity to believe that they can at-
tain their political ends through
violence and public disorder.
The Palestinian Arabs must
press their leaders who, up un-
til now have led them from one
tragedy to another to agree to
negotiations that will result in a
political settlement.
'Revisionist' Bookstores
PARIS (JTA1 A group calling itself the "Jewish
Organization of Combat/' took credit for ransacking two
Paris bookshops, one specializing in "revisionist" texts
that deny the Holocaust occurred and the other in right-
wing extremist literature.
The group said it hit the shops to protest the scheduled
appearance of Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the far right-
wing National Front Party, on a major political program to
be broadcast on French television on the 43rd anniversary
of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp.

In his address of "Visions,"
Henry Blumenstein will
discuss variables in our society
which have created a major im-
pact on the Jewish family of to-
day. These societal variables
include our greater longevity
and the change from industry
to services across the nation.
He will also examine the
greater changes which are ex-
pected in the future. Family
will be examined from the
viewpoint of one which is
already formed, one which is in
the stages of forming, and
from the vantage point of the
individual who chooses to re-
main single and defines family
in yet other ways. He will ad-
dress the phenomenon of the
"inverted Pyramid" of pro-
ducers versus non-producers
and the problems that smaller
families and diminishing
numbers of wage earners will
present in the future. He will
explore the ways in which we
react emotionally when in-
tergenerational problems ef-
fect our lives.
In addition to his presenta-
tion at the brunch on Sunday,
Mr. Blumenstein will conduct
a workshop seminar for social
workers, mental health profes-
sionals, and for professional
practitioners in the social ser-
vice field on Monday, March 7.

Drug Prevention At Hillel
Dear Janice:
My wife and I have three
children, all spaced three years
apart. They are all boys. A
stranger would never believe
that these boys all came from
the same family, they are so
different from each other. My
wife and I have talked about
this at length, but we have no
due as to why they could be so
different from one another.
The oldest boy is an excellent
student, shows responsibility
about any duties we give to
him, and is a quiet child. The
second boy seems moody and
is often what they used to call
when I was littel, "out of
sorts." He is also very deman-
ding at times for our attention.
The baby is a playful little guy,
and be almost always has a
happy, sunshiney smile on his
face. How do you account for
First of all, even (hough these
children were born into the
same household with the
same parents, cir-
cumstances were different
at each boy's birth. Your ex-
pectations for a first son are
always different, and usual-
ly greater, than for suc-
ceeding children. There
were also no other children
around for your first-born
to compete with, and be
received his parents' un-
divided attention. Your se-
cond son was born into a
family with a three-year-old
in place, one who had
already established his turf
as an achieving, conforming
child, and this was probably
difficult for your second-
born to compete with. When
the third baby was born,
your second became what
we call a "middle child"
who doesn't have the niche
carved out by the oldest as
the pace-setter, or the
youngest as the "baby" of
the family. The middle child
has a great deal of competi-

tion. On the other hand, the
baby can still be a baby and
not have great respon-
sibilities placed on him.
In addition to birth order,
other factors which in-
fluence each child are each
one's genetic predisposition
and personality. Some say
even one's birth sign has
some influence as well. It's
important for parents to be
fair to each child while still
treating each child in-
dividually. Since all children
are not alike, they need to
be treated as individuals.
If you are having problems in
managing your children, or
if you would like to learn
new techniques in parenting
which are effective, con-
sider taking a parenting
course. In addition to learn-
ing new strategies in handl-
ing children, you also have
the opportunity to share
with other parents.

Janice," do Jewish Floridian,

Professor Golan is con-

Israeli scholar on the Soviet
Union and the Middle East.
She is also director of
Women's Studies at the
Hebrew University.
Professor Khalidi, a Palesti-
nian from Jerusalem, is author
of several books on Palestinian

WASHINGTON (JTA) B'nai B'rith International
decided to take the first steps toward establishing its
presence in the Soviet Union.
The board of governors, meeting at its headquarters
here, made the decision based on the sense that a large ma-
jority of the estimated two million Soviet Jews would likely
remain there because of Soviet emigration policy.
It is believed that no Jewish organization from abroad
currently has an office in the Soviet Union.

The Unrest In Israel From Israeli Eyes
Today Israel once again
finds itself the spotlight of
world news. Israel's image is
maligned and tarnished every
night on the evening news.
The networks and the printed
media for the most part, por-
tray Israel as the cruel op-
pressor of a helpless occupied
people. They try to equate the
IDF (Israel Defense Forces) as
being equal to the worst com-
munist and nazi collaborators.
We continuously see Israeli
soldiers shooting Arabs
without seeing why any of this
is taking place.
This only further exacer-
bates the problem and pro-
vides grist for anti-Semitism
and rabid anti-Zionism lower-
ing Israel's image. It is very
important that we understand
what is going on in Judea-
Samaria (Gaza and the West
Bank). This is not an easy issue
with simple solution. Beyond a
doubt trying to force a solution
on Israel will not work. The
Israelis will never give in to
pressure. Jews have learned
the hard way what happens
when you show weakness to
your oppressors.
The Holocaust, is only one
horrifying example, of what
happens when one tries to ap-
pease those who want to
destroy him. The Jews, except
for some famous examples,
tried to peacefully resist the
Nazis and they were murdered
in the millions. Make no
mistake if the PLO and the
other instigators of the
violence in the occupied ter-
ritory, had their wish the
destiny of the 3 Vi million Jews
of Israel would not be much
different from the 6 million
victims of the Nazis. The PLO
is without a doubt bent on the
total destruction of Israel.
The current violence in
Judea and Samaria is caused
by several unfortunate violent
incidents. The incidents were
blown out of proportion by
PLO and Iranian fundamen-
talist agitators.
Even in Egypt which is con-
sidered one of the more
moderate Arab states we see
the government oppressing its
citizens. When Muslim fun-
damentalists rebelled against
the government they were put
down with great force. Tanks
and soldiers were brought in to
quell the riots.
In Syria, in the town of
Damour thousands of Muslim
fundamentalists were killed by
Syrian Army troops. They sur-
rounded the town with tanks
and cannons and completely
leveled it without regard to
casualties. How many of us
even know about this atrocity,
thanks to our anti-Israeli
press. How much coverage did
this get?
One name that is familiar in
the West is the Black
September Movement, yet do
we know where this came frm.
In September 1970 King Hus-
sein of Jordan grew tired of
the PLO trying to take over
his country. The PLO acted
like they were the legal
government and ignored Jor-
dan laws. They abused his sub-
jects and tried to subvert his
rule. Since Hussein is a
Hasmite from the Arabian
desert the PLO did not con-
sider him a legitimate ruler so
they decided to overthrow
him. Hussein's Bedouin army
was loyal to him and he
ordered them to throw the
Palestinians out. In
murdered or expelled from
Jordan. They fled to Southern
Lebanon where they set up a
semi-autonomous terrorist
state. This time was a sad era
for the PLO so they called it
Black Sepember. One of the
organizations set up to wreath
vengeance on Jordan as well
as Israel was the Black
September movement.
The Arab-Israeli conflict is a
tragic one. Stretching over 40
years it has caused thousands
of deaths and casualties on
both sides. It is sad to see
Arabs living in refugee camps
but we must understand how
they got there.
In May, 1948 when Israel
became a state they held out
the hand of friendship to their
Arab neighbors and welcome
citizens. They promised place,
equal rights, and mutual
cooperation to the whole Arab
world. This overture was re-
jected. The Arab nations were
bent on the total destruction of
the truncated infant Jewish
state. They were urged by the
leaders that the 650,000 Jews
of the Yishuv would be easy
victims for the more modern
Arab armies. Arab reliable
sources like the grand Mufti-of
Jerusalem urged the Arabs of
Palestine to flee so they would
not be in the way of the advan-
cing Arab Armies. Once the
Jews were slaughtered or
driven into the sea they could
come back and claim the
modem state, fortunately this
did not happen. The Jews
fought back and repelled the
Arabs. Now the Arabs were
faced with caring for hundreds
of thousands of Arab refugees.
They could have resettled then
but they did not. They let them
day. You would think the
media would for once present
these facts.
The media continuously
.HtheirvartoWthignored ^"^l^L^?
the Palestinians. All they did is
fill their heads with the dream
of how one day they would
return to their homes after the
Jewish state had been
destroyed. The Arab nations
use the refugees as political
puppets to keep the world's at-
tention on their problems.
They know if they settled, or
absorbed them the problem
would vanish. This does not fit
in with the benevolent plans of
the Arabs.
The media is forever on the
"so-called" plight of the
Palestinian refugees. The
seldom mention the advances
the Palestinians have made
since 1967. Child mortality
rates are down, health care is
much improved, education for
all has made great strides.
There are now universities on
the West Bank, such as Beir
Zeit, where there were non
prior to 1967. In the economic
field the Arabs have improved
their lives. They're standard of
living his risen with many of
them acquiring TVs and care
for the first time. Over
100,000 Arabs cross over the
border to work in Israel every-
on TV. What causes these peo-
ple to be out on the street toss-
ing Molotov cocktails? They
seldom mention that the
rioters are bribed or threaten-
ed by PLO organizers or that
the riots are specially staged
just for the cameras. While the
cameras seem to be able to
capture pictures of Israelis fir-
ing at Palestinians, they selec-
tively edit out the Molotov's
cocktails that are tossed at the
Once again United States
Jewry has to mobilize all its
political power in order to com-
bat Israels negative image.
Write your congresmen and
Senator to express your
displeasure with America's
anti-Israeli stand in the United
Nations. Write letters to the
editor of your local paper ex-
pressing your distaste at anti-
Israeli editorials and arbides.
It is very important that we
continue Israel in these dif-
ficult times. You can get in-

that will leave Israel even a
