'Western Nations Must Fight Terrorism'
Staff Report
"Terrorism is not an Israeli problem," Asher
Nairn, minister for information at the Israeli Em-
bassy in Washington, recently told reporters at a
press conference.
Terrorism according to Nairn is a problem
facing all Western democracies and it must be
"If we don't do it together, we will not overcome
terrorism," Nairn told reporters prior to speaking
at the Middle East Update at Temple Sinai.
Nairn urged Western nations to make a con-
certed effort against terrorist states, such as
Libya, Syria and Iran. These countries, Nairn said,
furnish arms, supply money and offer sanctuary to
"They are playing a dangerous game," Nairn
Western nations are deluding themselves if they
think they can Kve side-by-side with terrorists.
"In the 1970s, Greece, Italy and France signed
agreements with the Palestinian Liberation
Organization to permit PLO members to seek
refuge in their countries and to have free passage
through their countries," Nairn said.
"In the years since then, these three countries
have suffered more acts of terrorism than have
any other nations," he said. "You cannot buy a
ticket to free yourself from terrorism."
Nairn said Western nations now are in the
"midst of a war."
"A war of terrorism against Western
democracies," he said.
Nairn praised President Reagan's recent sanc-
tions against Libya as "courageous."
"I feel he took the proper actions to show the
world how to deal with terrorism."
Nairn said Western nations should immediately
stop all trade with Libya, ban all airline travel to
and from Libya and sever all diplomatic relations
with Libya.
"This would serve two purposes," Nairn said. "It
would first cause the government of Libya to begin
to crumble and it would give a message to other
countries, such as Syria, that terrorism does not
"European communities must choose to accept
the sacrifice of economic benefits rather than see
the destruction of the fabric of their societies,"
Nairn said.
Nairn labeled Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy
as "obsessed by a dream, a dream that is a
"He dreams of restoring the state of Islam to the
condition in which it was in the Eighth Century,"
Nairn added.
In a separate matter, Nairn said Israel was try-
ing to defuse the recent tensions with Syria.
"The best war is the war we don't fight," Nairn
said. He implied that Syria might want to provoke
a skirmish in order to find out what Israel does on
its reconnaisance flights to elude attacks.
The Middle East Update was sponsored by the
Jewish Federation of South Broward's Communi-
ty Relations Committee.

Israeli Inner Cabinet Overcomes Taba Obstacle
By David Landau
Inner Cabinet has agreed in prin-
ciple to settle Israel's border
dispute with Egypt over Taba
through binding arbitration, in the
process of which conciliation will
also be tried.
The formula, the key to an
overall package aimed at improv-
ing Israel's strained relations with
Egypt'was vigorously pressed by
Premier Shimon Peres. He
recently prevailed at a 12-hour
marathon session of the 10-man
Inner Cabinet (five Labor and five
Likud ministers). Previously, the
Inner Cabinet had been
Peres promptly telephoned
President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo
to inform him that the way has
been cleared for arbitration, the
method insisted upon by Egypt.
Peres told reporters afterwards
that the decision finally reached
by the Cabinet's top policy-
making forum would reverse the
process of deterioration in rela-
tions between Israel and Egypt.
It also apparently saved the
16-month-old Labor-Likud unity
coalition government from
dissolution. Peres had made clear
he was prepared to end the part-
nership if Likud continued to balk
at the formula which is a conces-
sion to Egypt but at the same time
preserves the conciliation option
demanded by Likud.
Deputy Premier and Housing
Minister David Levy, one of the
strongest voices in Likud, also ex-
pressed satisfaction with the deci-
sion. He stressed to reporters,
however, that the steadfastness of
the Likud ministers ensured that
what he called "safety valves"
would be built into the rapproche-
ment process with Cairo, to make
sure the Egyptians live up to their
part of the bargain.
He and other Likud spokesmen
explained that the first eight mon-
ths of the arbitration process
would actually be a period of con-
ciliation attempts during which
the arbitrators would be em-
powered to propose compromise
They also stressed that Israel's
agreement to arbitration would
have to be matched by a serious,
uninterrupted process of building
moral, neighborly relations bet-
ween Israel and Egypt. Most im-
portant would be the return of the
Egyptian Ambassador to Tel
Aviv, from where he was recalled
in 1982, during the Lebanon war,
and genuine progress toward im-
proving trade, tourism and
cultural relations between the two

"American Jews always knew we
could .count upon Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. to be at our side
when the rights and security of
Jews were threatened," recalled
Jacqueline K. Levine, chair of the
National Jewish Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council, in a recent
statement released to mark the
first observance of the national
holiday commemorating the late
civil rights leader's birth.
The NJCRAC is the national
coordinating body for the field of
Jewish community relations, com-
prised of 11 national and 113 local
Jewish community relations
"What made Dr. King such a
compelling national spokesman
for America's civU ngnts revolu-
tion," said the NJCRAC leader,
"was his clear agreement with the
principle that guides the field of
Jewish community relations: the
indivisibility of human rights. As
he stated almost two decades ago,
when, through a national
telephone network, he addressed
Human Rights Day rallies in all
parts of the country coordinated
by the NJCRAC, 'The denial of
human rights anywhere is a threat
to the affirmation of human rights
"Dr. King was particularly elo-
quent in applying this principle to
the plight Jews face in the Soviet
Union," continued Mrs. Levine.
" 'No person of good will (said
Rev. King) can stand by as a silent

auditor while there is a possibility
of the complete spiritual and
cultural destruction of a once-
fNourishing Jewish
community. .
" 'While Jews in Russia may not
be physically murdered as they
were in Nazi Germany, they are
facing every day a kind of
spiritual and cultural genocide. In-
dividual Jews may in the main be
physically and economically
secure in Russia, but the absence
of opportunity to associate as
Jews in the enjoyment of Jewish
culture and religious experience
becomes a severe limitation upon
an individual. These deprivations
are a part of a person's emotional
and intellectual life. They deter-
mine whether he is fulfilled as a
human being. Negroes can well
understand and sympathise with
this problem. When you are writ-
ten out of history as a people,
when you are given no choice but
to accept the majority culture, you
are denied an aspect of your own
identity. Ultimately you suffer a
corrosion of your self-
understanding and your self-
respect.' "
"And in 1968, the days before
he was murdered," the NJCRAC
leader observed, "Dr. King shared
with members of the Rabbinical
Assembly his profound understan-
ding of Israel's achievements, its
desire for peace, and its need for

Operation Moses Update: One Year Later
By Wendy Elliman
UJA Press Service
The difficult and dangerous
march through the desert ..
disease and death in the refugee
camps the tense clandestine
airlift and the dramatic homecom-
ing they are all a year ago now.
Fifteen thousand Ethiopian Jews
have reached Israel; thousands of
others remain in Ethiopia.
One year later, how are Israel's
Ethiopian Jews faring? The first
year has been a success, according
to both the Absorption Ministry
and the Jewish Agency. The
Agency receives most of its funds
from the United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation Campaigns in-
cluding Operation Moses. It
received $60 million from
American Jews to aid in Ethiopian
Jewry's initial absorption through
Operation Moses funds put to
good use.
"These 12 months were design-
ed to equip Ethiopian Jews for life
in Israel," says a representative
of the Jewish Agency. "The ma-
jority of Ethiopian Jews are now
comfortable in Hebrew, the
children are in school, and the
adults working or retraining. And
the community is learning to use
communal, commercial and
municipal services."
As the initial year ends,
however, the real absorption of
Ethiopia's Jews begins. "Until
now, they've been sheltered in the
absorption center," says a Jewish
Agency field worker. "Gas, water,
electricity, food and even pocket
money have been regularly pro-
vided. Advice and support have
been on hand. Now, they're going
to be on their own."
Some 750 families (3,000 peo-
ple) have already left the absorp-
tion centers and have been
allocated permanent housing in
towns throughout Israel. The
housing plan places groups of 20
families in 40 to 50
neighborhoods. Availability of
housing, however, is inevitably
the determining factor.
A major concern, as Ethiopian
Jews move out of the absorption
centers, is to ensure that they
enter into the mainstream of local
life. Israel's 160 community
centers, developed largely by the
Joint Distribution Committee
(funded by UJA/Federation Cam-
paigns), are to be the main
vehicles. Veteran Israeli and
newcomer Ethiopian families are
being paired.
"This pairing is to bring Ethio-
pian Jews into the neighborhood
social framework, and to help
them use local facilities. We want
to prevent a build-up of frustra-
tion within the Ethiopian com-
munity, or tension between Ethio-
pians and others in the
neighborhood," says a community
center worker.
Over half the Ethiopian Jewish
community in Israel (54 percent)
is younger than 18, and the adjust-
ment is relatively fast. Nearly
3,000 are in Youth Aliyah
frameworks, funded through
UJA/Federation Campaigns, with
the remaining 5,000 children in
day schools. The plan for the com-
ing year is to close separate
classes and fully integrate Ethio-
pian youngsters into the schools.
Another 129 Ethiopian Jewish
students are enrolled at Israeli
universities and technical
For the community's working-
age adults, on-the-job training
programs have been in operation
since February. Factories, hotels
and chain stores throughout the
country are employing hundreds
of Ethiopian Jews for a shortened
working day, and allowing them
time for study after work. Within
two years, 1,580 Ethiopian Jews
or half the working-age com-
munity will have passed
through the program.
"It's important for the Ethio-
pian immigrants to get jobs as
soon as possible," says a Jewish
Agency official. ''It's
Economic Austerity Plan
Leads to Wage Erosion
By Gil Sedan And Hugh Orgel
JERUSALEM (JTA) The consequences of Israel's austerity
economic program is the erosion of wages. According to figures
released at year's end by the Central Bureau of Statistics, the
gross wages of civil service workers were down 22 percent in the
second half of 1985 compared to the first half. The erosion for
wage-earners in other sectors was 17 percent.
In the past few months, the real value of wages has been
lowered to the levels of 1977. Those of public employes sank to the
1967 levels. In some quarters these developments are hailed as a
sign of the successful battle against inflation. Housewives and
others take a dim view. They say wage-earners have made the
greatest sacrifice to make the economic program work.
A concomitance of the wage erosion has been an erosion of
private consumption, which is down by two percent. During the
first half of 1986, attempts to cool down the economy by means of
a package deal freezing wages, prices and taxes were unsuc-
cessful. During the second half, the government launched an
overall program aimed at putting a freeze on the entire economy.
The focus of the new plan was to freeze the Shekel-Dollar ex-
change rate at 1,500 Shekels to $1. Agreement was reached with
Hi8tadurt on wages while the manufacturers agreed to govern-
ment price controls. The government, therefore, was able to cut
its budget, less by reducing programs than by slashing price sub-
sidies and imposing new taxes. But interest rates were kept at a
relatively high level.
As a result of the agreement with Histadrut, wages will im-
prove in the next few months. Pirvate consumption is expected to
stay down. But contrary to government expectations, the rate of
savings and investment has decreased as well. Israelis have less
cash in their pockets, either to spend or to save.
Meanwhile, Israelis have bid goodbye to the old Shekel and have
welcomed the new. On Jan. 1 the old 1,000 Shekel note was
replaced by a new one Shekel coin worth about 66 cents, or 1.5 to
the Dollar. This does not represent an upward valuation of the
Shekel; it is simply a matter of removing three zeroes. Banks

Ethiopian Jewish teenagers are par-

name is derived from the Hebrew acronym

teenagers join Gadna, which increases

psychologically healthier, ana
unemployment in Israel will get
worse before it gets better. So it's
vital that Ethiopian Jews have
employment before the crisis
more fully hits."
The problems of employment,
housing and integration into the
community are all ultimately
solvable, especially with sufficient
funding. What a Jewish Agency
social worker describes as "the
worst problem," however, is less
easily addressed.
In over a third of all Ethiopian
Jewish families in Israel, one
parent it is usually the father
is absent. Often he is dead, or
trapped in Ethiopia; sometimes
the couple was divorced.
Economically and psychologically,
this puts the family under
Contact is maintained between
divided families. Almost every
Ethiopian Jew in Israel still has
close relations in Ethiopia, and
letters are regularly exchanged.
"The situation in Ethiopia is
very bad," says the social worker.
"But when you look back from the
freedom of the Jewish state and a
three-room apartment with a
refrigerator and running water,
to the life you knew in an Ethio-
pian village, it looks even worse."
If Israel's Ethiopian Jews have
traveled far beyond the life they
left a year ago, there is still a long
road ahead. Israel estimates that

quired military service,

dead included four children.
He was sentenced by a military
court on Dec. 28 but was sent to
the hospital for treatment of what
was described as a blood ailment.

ultimately cost $300 million, in-
cluding the $125 million budgeted
for the first phase of absorption.
Half of the $125 million was raised
from American Jews through
Operation Moses, but more funds
are needed to make this dramatic
aliyah successful.
Polish Officials Upset
Over Compensation Order
BONN (JTA) The Polish
Press Agency recently said that it
was not acceptable that the Flick
industrial conglomerate, now
owned by Deutsche Bank, will pay
reparations only to Jews who
were used as slave labor by one of
its subsidiaries during World War
According to the Polish Press
Agency, most of the slave laborers
were Russian and Polish inmates
of Nazi concentration camps. The
Deutsche Bank, West Germany's
largest, recently agreed that Flick
pay five million Marks
equivalent to $2 million to sur-
viving Jewish concentration camp
inmates forced to work for its sub-
sidiary, Dynamit-Nobel, under
brutal and dangerous conditions.
The agreement culminated
nearly 20 years of efforts by the
Conference on Jewish Material
Claims Against Germany to get
compensation from Flick. The
Finance Ministry, meanwhile,
published statistics showing that
West Germany has made available
a total of 75 billion Marks to
Jewish and non-Jewish victims of
the Nazi era. The Federal
Republic will pay another 11
billion Marks in reparations this
The monies have been paid to
several European countries and to
Israel, which received 3 billion
Marks, and to various organiza-
tions and many individuals. Part
of the payment is in the form of
pensions to Nazi victims or
members of their families, which
will be paid out for many years to
The Finance Ministry issued its
report after a Bundestag member,
Hermann Fellner, cast aspersions
on Jews seeking compensation for
slave laborers. Fellner, a ranking
member of the Christian Social
Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister
party of Chancellor Helmut Kohl's
ruling Christian Democratic

TV 'Hero' Tells of
Real Wartime Hell
Friday, January 24, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 3
Life in four concentration
camps was about to begin for
16-year-old Robert Clary.
But he was still a teenager,
naive and hopeful. Thus, he wrote
a letter filled with optimism to his
brother in France.
"I mailed it on the first day I
became a prisoner of the Nazis,"
said Clary, who portrayed Louis
Lebeau on the popular TV show
"Hogan's Heroes." "This letter
was written with such courage
and companion that later, when I
rearead it, I could not believe it
was mine.
"If I had known then that 698 of
us would go directly to the gas
chambers, I never would have
written such a thing."
This was the beginning of
Clary's nightmare which saw
almost ail of his family murdered
by the Nazis. Clary, now 60, didn't
speak about his experience during
the Holocaust for many years. But
now he brings his message to the
public. Recently, the Education
Committee of the Jewish Federa-
tion of South Broward brought
Clary to speak before students at
Temple Beth Shalom Academy in
Hollywood and the Jewish High
School of South Florida in North
Miami Beach.
"It was an emotional and ex-
citing experience for our students
to hear Robert Clary tell of his ex-
periences during the Holocaust,
when he was a teenager. He made
the group feel as though it could
have happened to them," said
Sandra Ross, director of the
Education for the Federation.
Clary told the students about
the sour smell and cramped
quarters in trains filled with hun-
dreds of Jews. He remembered
the man who told a Nazi soldier
that Clary was 16 old enough
for slave labor, thus saving him
from the gas chambers.
Why did it take Robert Clary 36
years to tell his story to the
"Number A5714," Clary said as
he showed the tatooed number on
his arm. "it means that instead of
having a name, I was a number.

Obvious Solutions
By M. J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
The television coverage of the terrorist horrors at the Rome
and Vienna airports demonstrated, once again, the power of that
medium. Those who viewed international terrorism in the
abstract had to be shaken at the sight of casually dressed tourists
lying dead murdered at the airline terminals. Terrorism is no
abstract. It is as real as a college boy killed as he headed home for
New Year's or an 11-year old girl dying in her father's arms.
The pictures told most of the story. But, nevertheless, the net-
works provided their own commentaries and those of various "ex-
perts" who provided the usual litany of solutions to the frighten-
ing problem. They all sounded hollow predictable prescriptions
from people who really have little idea about what might succeed
in eliminating terrorism.
It is the absence of any sure means of dealing with terrorism
that produces what I call the political response to it one that
was offered repeatedly as 1985 ended. Garrick Utley, substitute
anchor on the Dec. 27 NBC Evening News, put it like this: "As
long as the basic conflict in the Middle East continues unresolved
and there is no sign that is about to change it is unlikely that
there will be an end to this terrorist war in which no one wears a
uniform and everyone is a victim."
In short, the NBC correspondent believes that if the "basic"
Arab-Israeli conflict is resolved, the terrorists will cease their
murderous attacks. This common assumption is worth examining.
Just suppose that Israel, Jordan, and Yasir Arafat's PLO all
agreed on the establishment of a West Bank Palestinian state in-
cluding east Jerusalem as its capital. That would be a settlement
that would meet most of the Arabs' fundamental demands. But
would it end terrorism? Not likely. Arafat's opponents, the Abu
Nidal gang, the Libyans, the Syrians and probably many of
Arafat's own "moderate" followers would still call for the cap-
ture of the rest of "Palestine." The radicals and rejectionists
would still seek to destroy the Arab moderates and to eliminate
the American presence in the Middle East. They would use the
new Palestinian state as a base for attacks on what was left of
Israel and on civilians worldwide. But, otherwise, the existence of
a West Bank Palestinian state wouldn't change a thing. The PLO
is the first to admit that its goal is not a West Bank mini-state but
the occupation of Israel itself.
And even that wouldn't appease them. Imagine the nightmarish
scenario of an Israel totally eliminated, destroyed by the Arabs in
a surprise attack. Would even the elimination of the Jewish state
appease the fanatics? Again, it isn't likely. As in Lebanon, the
various sects and splinter groups would fight for control of
"Palestine." The various PLO wings would seek to destroy each
other as they tried to grab their piece of the booty. Each of the
Arab states would stake out its claim for territory, with Syria
first in line to achieve its dream of "Greater Syria." It would be
like 1948 when Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Iraq each attacked in
hope of destroying the Jewish state and getting a piece of
Palestine for itself. In the end, Israel survived. But the West
Bank and Gaza allotted to the Palestinians by the United Na-
tions were snatched up by, respectively, Jordan and Egypt. It
would be no different today, except in one respect. In 1948, the
various Arab factions did not take the battle to international air-
ports. Today, Palestinian and other terrorists prefer killing inno-
cent civilians.
In short, there is no political solution to the terrorist problem.
Even the achievement of the PLO's genocidal goal would not calm
a Middle East that is ripped apart by a hundred sectarian con-
flicts. Look at Lebanon; Iran and Iraq; Libya and Egypt, and the
Shi'ites and Sunnis. These bloody and ancient feuds will not be
ended by an Arab-Israeli peace treaty or by surrendering to the
terrorists' stated goals. Abu Nidal and others of his ilk do not kill
so that they might ultimately sit under a fig tree in Nablus or
Jerusalem. They kill because they want to establish a Middle East
arrangement where they can control it all: "Palestine," the oil
fields, and all the wealth that has been created in the Middle East
over the last 50 years. That is the goal they kill each other for.
And that is the goal that leads them to attack innocent air-
travelers. It is a goal that cannot be realized. That is why 1985 is
not likely to be the last "year of the terrorist."

Abba A Special Legacy
(Editor's Note: Next month
marks the second Yahrzeit of the
author'8 father. The column, writ-
ten shortly after Morton Polin's
death, perhaps describes how
many children feel.)
Yitzhak ben Mordechai
A man's death recently passed
unnoticed by the media at-large.
The newspapers ran the obituary,
but there were no memories to
relive his life.
He was, like many other men,
someone's beloved father and
He ended his life in much the
same way as he lived it by argu-
ing with one of his sons, and then
spending his last few hours runn-
ng here and there to help that
very son.
When my father died recently I
was 7,000 miles away, living in
Israel. Yet I can visualize exactly
what he did his last few hours
after talking to me on the
telephone early on a Friday morn-
ing. He dressed, ate breakfast and
was at the bank waiting for it to
open. How many banks he went to
I don't know, but he went to as
many as were necessary. After
finishing my business, he probably
ran other errands since I had sent
him a "wish list" of things I
wanted friends to bring me in
Israel. He might have gone that
morning to a camera store to buy
film or another place to buy
clothes for me. Or he might have
already run these errands earlier
in the week.
Several hours later Morton
Polin died of a heart attack.
Although the last time I saw my
father was in September I have
vivid memories of him during
these last months because of let-
ters my parents and I wrote each
I know how he waited each day
for the mail, hoping to hear from
me. At first, neighbors thought he
was waiting for important papers,
but all he wanted was news from
abroad. And then he would tell
others about his son in Israel.
Mom would write that
everybody knew about Dad's son
in Israel. Everyone already knew
of Dad's other son the lawyer in
Fort Lauderdale.
I know that if I didn't write for
several days I would receive a let-
ter from Dad telling me to write
more often.
Dad took great pride in his fami-
ly, his wife and his two sons. He
lived for them. He sacrificed for
My brother and I will remember
a father who treated his two sons
differently because they were
We will remember a father who
sent one son to sports camp, not
because the youth showed any
athletic prowess, but because the
boy waned to go. We will
remember a father who gave both
his sons guitar lessons, although
only one showed talent.
We will remember our father
who beamed at his eldest son's
wedding. How happy he was that
day, everyone said. Although a
wedding belongs to the bride and
groom, that day belonged to our
father. He would have beamed
had he lived to see grandchildren.
We will remember our father
because he constantly pushed
harder for both of his sons than
either of them ever pushed for
And we will remember our
father who always tried to help his
sons. We will rememebr a father
who constantly looked out for his
sons. How, if a son needed help,
the help was there.
I will remember a father who
was always grateful to the people
who befriended his son in Israel.
How he often wrote telling me to
express his thanks to them for
taking care of his son.
And my brother and I will
remember a man who hated his
enforced retirement. How he
hated it. How he despised his frail
health, although anyone who saw
him would never have guessed
this man had a weak heart. We
will remember a man who never
gave in to his bad health. But how
he longed to work.
There was no substitute for
work to our father. Thus, he
always found something to do. If I
went away for a week, my car
would be spotless when I
Our father took a lot of pride in
his family and what he did.
We will remember a man who
lived a good life, although a short
life. No son ever thinks his father
will die. Even though we knew our
father had heart trouble, we never
really accepted his mortality. If
parents think children are their
immortality, the children think
their parents are immortal.
You see, Dad, we really thought
you would outlive us all.

Moscow: Center of Terrorism
Friday, January 24, 1986
Volume 16
Number 4
By Morris J. Amitay
Rarely would friends of Israel agree with a Rus-
sian pronouncement on the Middle East. But when
Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze
recently denied that Qadaffi's Libya was "the
center of international terrorism" he was entirely
correct. Moscow is.
That does not mean that Libya does not offer
training, weapons, finances and* other services to
both home grown and international terrorists. The
record of Libyan involvement is clear although
the European countries, in their usual craven
response to Arab terrorism and U.S. pleas prefer
to ignore it lest their pocketbooks suffer in anv
way. J
But it is the Soviet Union which offers protection
to Libya through arms, advisors and now the con-
struction of a comprehensive air defense system
along Libya's extensive Mediterranean coast. But
Libya is only one theatre of operation for Soviet-
sponsored terrorism. High quality commando and
technical training is taking place in Syria and Iran
These newly trained terrorists will not be limiting
their future operations to the Middle East Euro-
pean targets are much more likely.
While acknowledging Moscow's overall direc-
tion, doing something about it directly against the
Soviets is obviously ruled out. But why not act
decisively against its proxies such as Libya?
Overthrowing a despot by a combined internal
and external push should not be beyond the
capabilities of our armed forces, the CIA, and our
"moderate" Arab allies. What is lacking is the will
to commit American military power even in a
limited fashion.
Strangely, it is the State Department's George
Shultz who has repeatedly urged military
responses to attacks on U.S. targets, and
Defense's Weinberger who becomes positively
pacifist when any such moves are suggested.
Granted, a military operation against Libya would
not be a Grenada-like pushover but our lack of
reaction to repeated Arab terrorist provocations
will only encourage further murderous attacks If
the risk is only taken by the terrorist themselves
why shouldn't Libya, Iran and Syria continue to
MU .'. :>

pursue this war against the United States and
If, as our President has asserted, we have "ir-
refutable evidence" of Libyan involvement in the
Rome and Vienna airport massacres are U.S
economic sanctions really a sufficient response?
Why do we have to wait for the next bloody attack
before responding with force against the source"
As for the Soviet inspirers of the campaign, we
must continue to judge Soviet behavior in terms of
deeds not words and in terms of their overall
objective: destruction of all democracies.
Accountable to no one, the Russian leadership
can try to have it all ways. For example, the
Soviets have been playing their diplomatic games
with Israel hinting at renewed ties but this is
probably more to influence Jewish public opinion
in the United States than anything else.
Victims of their own propaganda to some extent,
the Russians ascribe inordinate influence to the
m^j?0^" Jewish community to impact not only on
Middle East policy but on arms control and trade
issues. Prominent Jews have been approached bv
boviet "diplomats" here in an attempt to portray
hoviet actions as benign and peace-loving.
We should know better by now. While we must
pursue every avenue to arrive at agreements to
prevent a nuclear war, we should also realize the
basic problem in U.S.-Soviet relations is not that
we do not understand each other well enough, but
that we understand each other too well. Our two
systems are basically incompatible. Any com-
promise on our part is regarded as weakness by
the Soviets Similarly, to Qadaffi and company,
lack- ot a military response on our part is regarded
not as concern for civilian casualties but weakness,
in Arab eyes today the United States must be
regarded as a paper tiger whose growl is worse
than its bite.
The United States and the West should have
learned long ago not only that economic sanctions
do not work, but also the terrible price of appease-
ment. If we cannot act decisively against a Qadaffi
who openly threatens to send suicide squads into
Washington, ca/i we really survive m tjiejong run?

High School in Israel A Maturing Experience
Hollywood, Florida
I have many treasured
memories of my "eight week
academic experience" of High
School in Israel. During my stay I
studied, learned, travelled, climb-
ed, visited, played, laughed, sang,
and matured. Almost 200 of us
from several different states
spent six days a week learning
history while keeping up with our
math and science courses from
home. The environment was very
different from what we were used
to: the people, food, language, and
lifestyle. Yet being with 49 other
students in my dorm eased the
The main purpose of the pro-
gram, as you know, was to learn
history. Studying and seeing the
sites where the actual events took
place contrasted with our tradi-
tional ideas of learning. Mere
memorization of facts was inade-
quate. Although we had to know
dates, the main emphasis was
placed on the grasping of ideas
and patterns that recurred
throughout the different eras. We
would not just discuss what hap-
pened, but rather, where, why,
and how. Climbing mountains as
did those of thousands of years
ago gave us an understanding of
why the Jewish people did what
they did. Simply reading about a
"tel" was not enough. We actually
visited it and learned about each
civilization that built upon it. This
left impressions and ideas in our
minds in ways that pages in a text
could not. Therefore, facts and
concepts paired together were im-
portant, but not one without the
About half of our classes were
on tiyulim, or in the field. We
learned in Jerusalem, Safed, the
Negev, the Golan Heights, and, of
course, on top of Masada. I recall
our group shouting in Hebrew
"Masada will not fall again" and
hearing an echo from the great
Being in a foreign country
meant representing America its
opinions and social mores. When
travelling, we were spotted by the
Israelis immediately there was
no doubt about that! We had to be
conscious of our behavior and
speech, for most understood
English quite well. Many of us
spent at least one weekend with
an Israeli family, whether it was
relatives or old or new friends.
Youth to youth was a program
that I, along with about 20 others,
participated in. We experienced
Shabbat at the home of an
English-speaking family with a
girl or boy, like ourselves. I say ex-
perienced because, prior to our
trip, many of us did not have
Shabbat dinner or lunch at home
in the U.S. Talking with the
parents gave us insight about
their perceptions of Americans.
The father of the house was
astonished to learn that I drive my
car to school and that most of the
kids my age do, too. Yet I tried to
minimize the details to avoid
boasting about our luxuries.
My favorite optional Shabbat
weekend was with two friends
from my dorm. We stayed with
one of the girl's mom's friend who
lived in a beautiful neighborhood.
She had two sons 15 and 18. We
quickly got acquainted with them
and their friends and that Satur-
day night we all walked to one of
their classmates' party in the
neighborhood. Dancing and talk-
ing with them proved that they
are not so different from us. Of
course they danced differently,
but many of the songs were
American and British, and we
soon discovered that they very
often think just as we do.
However, in Israeli homes there
is a closeness that is lacking
among most American families.
On the whole, Israeli children
show more respect for their
parents than we do. There, kids
take responsibility for their ac-
tions and their parents, in turn,
respect them.
The session I attended from
mid-April to the beginning of June
saw many Jewish holidays. The
most vivid in my memory is that
of Israel's Independence Day,
which takes place towards the end
of April. We spent that evening in
the modern, busy city of Tel Aviv.
Bands played and people sang and
danced in the streets including
us! We could never do that at
home! We realized how lucky we
are to have finally acquired our
own nation as Jews. We felt a
sense of belonging and obligation
to Israel, whether it meant being a
strong Jew at home, or even
someday making aliyah.
One of the greatest elements of
the program was living with so
many people my age. Fifty was
enough, but not too many, and so-
meone was always willing to join
you for a meal or homework. We
did everything together, from at-
tending classes and tiyulim to
eating and washing our clothes.
Helping each other understand a
lesson and quizzing for a text aid-
ed greatly in learning the
My High School in Israel ex-
perience will always have a special
meaning to me. I accomplished
several feats during the term. One
was that I survived an intense
program without the guidance of
my parents. I made my own deci-
sions and dealt with the conse-
quences. Being more independent
than what I had been accustomed
to allowed me to expand my sense
of self-confidence and maturity. I
knew that if a problem arose, it
was up to me to see that it was
taken care of. Having common
sense and a realistic attitude
allowed me to stay healthy, which
was vital for complete and atten-
tive participation.
My study of history required
much time and effort. Yet because
it held special interest with me,
the work was not burdensome.
Learning about thousands of
years of history of our people and
applying it to modern times, while
actually stepping on the land
itself, was a rare and wonderful
experience. Having become a Bat
Mitzvah in Israel, I have made two
trips there. I can't wait to return
to this great land and its people,
hopefully as soon as next summer.
I, on behalf of my fellow HSI
alumni, want to thank the Jewish
Federation of South Broward for
subsidizing a very meaningful
part of our lives and emotional ad-
vancement as young adults. We
appreciate it.

Israel's New Modern Navy
By Eric Rozenman
Assistant Editor
Near East Report
The Israeli Navy hopes to begin
receiving the first of its new
generation of major ships early in
the 1990s, with delivery com-
pleted by the middle of the
decade, according to a source
familiar with long-range planning.
The modernization program is ex-
pected to include three of the
newly-developed Dolphin class
submarines and a larger number
of new missile boats.
Stories in the Israeli press
recently noted that U.S. and
Israeli representatives have been
discussing the plans and
American financial backing. Con-
struction of the conventionally-
powered submarines will take
place in Haifa after investment in
the shipyards there by U.S. firms.
Modernization of the navy has a
high priority because of Israel's
115-mile long Mediterranean
coast, several large-scale at-
tempts by terrorists to infiltrate
by sea in 1986 and the continued
growth of Arab naval forces. One
knowledgeable source explained
that win today's accurate high
explosive naval munitions and the
>n of moat of Israel's
and industry along the
atrip from Nahariya in the
north to Ashkelon in the south,
"the shoreline is the soft
underbelly." In addition, "Syria,
Egypt, Libya and Saudi Arabia
are building strong navies. The
amounts of ships and armament
they have is frightening."
The Israeli navy includes about
30 combat vessels, most of them
fast-attack missile boats and
smaller coastal patrol ships and
three small yet capable British-
built diesel submarines. But the
suhs are nearly 10 years old and in
another decade will have to be
replaced. The subs and missile
boats defend against possible at-
tack by hostile navies; the patrol
boats' primary mission is to pre-
vent terrorist infiltration. The two
objectives conflict because daily
anti-terrorist patrols take training
time and resources away from
maintaining readiness against
conventional attacks.
Israel cannot compete with
potential adversaries in numbers
of combat vessels; it must,
therefore, concentrate on building
highly advanced craft A Defense
Week report said the new class of
missile boats "bristles with elec-
tronic warfare and combat
Cost of the submarine package
was estimated at approximately
$400 million in mid-1985, the
missile boats at about $100 million
each. Unlike the submarines, the
missile boats will be constructed
in the United States. Those
presently in service carry the
sophisticated Israel-built Gabriel
and American Harpoon ship-to-
ship missiles.
The navy's 6,600 personnel -
plus another 5,000 reserves on
mobilization make it the
smallest of Israel's armed ser-
vices. However, no one argues
any more as to whether the coun-
try needs a navy, let alone a
sophisticated one. "The sea is still
the only fairly open border ...
(and) you have to remember that
more then 95 percent of Israel's
imports and exports go by sea,"
said one authority.
Israel's original navy, compris-
ed of old ships used in the post-
World War II immigration, was
succeeded in the early 1960s by a
few hand-me-down British
destroyers and frigates. Bat
these proved too vulnerable and
too few for brad's special needs.

The Big Event
Guilty Verdict May Deal
Death Blow to the 'Order

By Ellen Marks
SEATTLE (JTA) The trial
which concluded last month with
the jury finding 10 members of
The Order a neo-Nazi white
supremacist and violent anti-
Semitic group based in the Nor-
thwest guilty of racketeering
has broken the organization, a
prosecutor said here.
"I hope (the verdict) has a
dampening effect on anybody,
right and left, who considers com-
mitting crimes like this for
political reasons," added Assis-
tant U.S. Attorney Gene Wilson,
one of a team of six prosecutors in
the three-and-a-half-month trial.
The defendants were tried
under the 1970 Racketeer In-
fluenced and Corrupt Organiza-
tions Act (RICO), which requires
the jury to find a defendant guilty
of committing two crimes to ad-
vance the goals of a criminal
organization in order to be found
guilty of the charge of
Each defendant from The Order
was charged with carrying out
two or more crimes out of an
overall list of 67 which included
two murders, three armored-car
robberies, and counterfeiting as
part of The Order's plot to over-
throw the government, kill Jews,
and deport non-whites.
The jury of eight women and
four men found each of the defen-
dants guilty of racketeering after
deliberating for nearly 55 hours.
Each of the group of nine men and
one woman faces a maximum
40-year prison term and a $50,000
fine. Several members of The
Order were also found guilty of
additional charges, such as rob-
bery and weapons violations. At-
torneys for three of the defen-
dants said they would appeal the
Sentencing is scheduled for Feb.
6 and 7. "Stiff sentences are ap-
propriate, but that's totally up to
the judge," said Wilson after the
verdict was handed down. The
jurist is U.S. District Judge
Walter McGovern, who presided
over the trial.
At the same time, several defen-
dants and other rightwingers
asserted that the movement
against Jews and blacks will con-
tinue despite the outcome of the
trial. Gary Lee Yarbrough, con-
victed of racketeering and rob-
bery, said within hours of the ver-
dict that the organization will con-
tinue its mission of spreading the
propaganda of the Christian Iden-
tity movement, which preaches
that Jews are descendants of the
"There are thousands and
thousands of people out there who
believe as I believe," the 20-year-
old Sandpoint, Idaho, man told a
local newspaper. "They are afraid
because when you speak out on
these beliefs the government
comes down on you. But for every
one that has left because their
faith wasn't strong enough, three
more came."
Thomas Metzger, leader of the
California-based White American
Resistance, denounced the ver-

martyrs for their cause.
Despite the openly racist and
anti-Semitic beliefs of The Order
which prosecution witness
described, jurors ignored the
defendants' beliefs and convicted
them solely on the evidence, said
jury foreman Mary Ball.
Jurors heard evidence from 370
witnesses and examined more
than 1,500 pieces of evidence in
the course of the trial. Former
members of The Order testified
that the group planned to over-
throw the government, and
assassinate prominent Jews and
other "white traitors" who stood
Friedman to Host Event
Federation leader Ruth Fried-
man recently hosted a Pacesetter

Ball refused to tell reporters
whether any of the two crimes
which each of the 10 defendants
was guilty of included the murder
of talk-show host Alan Berg of
Denver. The jury was not required
to reveal to the court which pair of
crimes on each defendant's list oc-
casioned the verdict of guilty of
The Berg murder was on the list
of 67 crimes of The Order and was
also one of the crimes defendant
Bruce Carroll Pierce was charged
with. Berg was gunned down in
the driveway of his home on June
18, 1984. Prosecutors charged
that the The Order had him
assassinated because he was
Jewish and relished baiting anti-
Semitic callers on his talk-show
The prosecution argued that
Berg was one of several well-
known Jews targeted for
assassination. A former member
of The Order, Daw Parmenter of
Denver, testified that the hit list
also included "white traitors ...
those in power who went along
with the destruction of the white
race." Ball said that the jurors
found defendant Jean Craig guilty
of surveilling Berg before he was
murdered. This charge and that of
dealing in stolen property were
the only crimes on Craig's list.

trial that only one leader of The

Time Works Against Peace ...
TAU Professor: Return West Bank
By Martin Erann
Special to the Federation
Time works against peace pro-
spects in the Mideast. It would
have been so much easier to make
peace with the Arabs in 1949, and
a great deal easier to make peace
with Jordan in 1967 than in 1985.
Prof. Yoram Dinstein. an expert
on international law and pro-
rector of Tel Aviv University,
brought this point home at a re-
cent TAU Seminar Associates
meeting in South Florida.
Although a strong proponent of
peace efforts and a supporter of
the Labor Party, Prof. Dinstein
said he was not optimistic he
was afraid "perish the
thought" that the state of war
between Israel and her Arab
neighbors, which already has
broken the record of the "Thirty
Years War," will also break that
of the "Hundred Years War."
In 1949, during the armistice
talks in Lausanne, Switzerland,
agreement could have been sim-
ple. The issue blocking it was the
number of Palestinian refugees
which Israel was prepared to
repatriate Israel had agreed to
100,000, while the Arabs insisted
on 200,000 Now there is a
PLO which is intent on supplan-
ting Israel, and the issue has
grown immeasurably more
In no case, however, should
Israel consider annexing the*.
"West Bank" with its 1.2 million
Arabs, Dinstein said. This is
something the Likud and other
rightwing elements in Israel are
pushing for, but it is an impossible
Dinstein referred to the Meir
Kahane platform of expatriating
the Arabs of the West Bank and
Israel as altogether unthinkable
and Israel's "embarrassment."
Noting that Kahane was an "im-
port from the U.S.," he said he
hoped the U.S. would succeed in
revoking his citzenship. But
Israel, as a country of political
freedom, cannot stop Kahane
without violating its standard of
civil rights (although the Knesset
has tried to do so and has failed).
One of the problems in dealing
with Kahane is that Israel has no
constitution. It is one of only two
democratic countries not to have
one the other being Great Bri-
tain and, indeed, Israeli law is
largely based on the English law,
since Britain ruled over pre-1948
Palestine under mandate from the
League of Nations. Not having a
constitution, Israel must deal with
basic issues (like outlawing parties
such as Kahane's) under the test
of the Supreme Court.
Israel had attempted to author a
constitution, Dinstein added, bu.'
could not do so because of irrecon
cilable differences between the
secular and religious parties -
the attempt failed in working on
the preamble, when the parties
stumbled over the issue of whether
or not it must begin with the words
"Be'erzat Hashem" (With G-d's
help). So, instead, the Knesset
has been devising "chapters" of
what would add up eventually to a
constitution, dealing with broad
areas as the need has arisen.
While Israel is attempting to
deal with the Kahane problem, it
is generally agreed that Kahane's
"solution" is no solution at all.
But the annexation idea might
seem more plausible and has to be
dealt with, Dinstein said. For the
past 18 years, Israel has held the
West Bank and Gaza under
military occupation, applying the
Jordanian law to the residents (as
is required under international
This has caused Israel a serious
dilemma: under international con-
ventions (as well as Jordanian
law), capital punishment is per-
missible; but Israel has no death
penalty (with the exception of
genocide Adolph Eichmann was
the only one ever executed, under
this law). So that when terrorists
are apprehended after committing
their murder, Israel could execute
them, after due process, under in-
ternational law, as the occupying
force. On the other hand, the same
international conventions forbid

the occupying force to destroy
property (except that destroyed in
the course of combat).
Israel, however, had adopted
the practice of demolishing the
houses of terrorists, after
evacuating the homes of their
residents. This is against the in-
ternational law, Dinstein said, but
when faced with the choice bet-
ween the value of human life and
that of property protection, Israel
has chosen to give priority to
human life.
("As an international lawyer, I
have to say that choosing not to
exercise the permitted death
penalty still does not give the
right to violate the law on destruc-
tion of property.")
("As an international lawyer, I
have to say that choosing not to
exercise the permitted death
penalty still does not give the
right to violate the law on destruc-
tion of property.")
Israel's legal minds, however,
came up with another solution: in-
stead of demolishing the houses,
the military authorities simply
brick them up so they cannot be
used. This serves an additional
purpose the former residents
continue to see their home and
long to get back into it (the home,
in the Arabs' culture, is something
with a very deep attachment). So
that in many cases, after several
months, the families involved turn
to the military government with a
promise that none of their
members will further engage in
terrorist activities, and obtain
permission to return to their
Dinstein denied that everyone is
so busy condemning Kahane as a
racist, that they are failing to deal
with the substance of the issues he
raises. The "demographic threat"
raised by Kahane is not as simple
as it sounds, he said. The number
of Arabs in the West Bank, for ex-
ample, has not grown since 1967
in fact it has declined by a
percentage point or two, despite
their higher birth rate. True, he
conceded, this is due largely to
emigration which might be tem-
porary in nature, and those who
left to work in other Arab coun-
tries still are legally residents of
the West Bank and may wish to
return. But as the economic situa-
tion improves there and it has
improved, along with education
and living standards, tenfold in
the last 18 years the birth rate
has also declined considerably.
The issue of population growth
is merely another strong argu-
ment aginst annexation of the
areas and the resulting addition of
1.2 million Arabs to Israel's
population, Dinstein said.
Presumably, even though the
Jews would still constitute a two-
to-one majority, the Arabs (1.2
million from the annexed areas
and 600.000 living in Israel) would
coalesce and form the largest
single political party, holding the
balance-of-power and, among
other things, repealing the Law of
Return which is a basic tenet of

Jewish Family Outlook
By Susan N. Kosaak
Family Life Education
Jewish Family Service
of Broward County
A Jew is a human being first and foremost. We are capable of
greatness. We can do anything anyone else can do. Sometimes we
do it better, sometimes worse.
We unfortunately are not immune to cancer, diabetes, heart
disease or alcoholism. Yes, alcoholism is a disease. The American
Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association and
the World Health Organization accepts alcoholism as a very
serious disease. It is the third leading killer in the United States
preceded only by cancer and heart disease. The National Council
on Alcoholism conservatively estimates that ten million
Americans are alcohol dependent. It permeates and destroys
bodies, minds, emotions, families and economics.
Not all alcoholics are on skid row. Actually, less than 5 percent
are street people. It is an equal opportunity disease affecting
men, women and children of all ages, races, socio-economic levels
and religions. Yes, even Jews!
It has been estimated that 25 percent of Jewish alcoholics have
an history of alcoholism in their families. Oddly enough, this is the
same percentage found among non-Jews. Surprised?
The amount of alcohol consumed does not necessarily define the
alcoholic. It is not how much you drink, but rather what happens
when you drink. Some people demonstrate strong personality
changes after only one drink, while others require considerably
more alcohol in order to create obvious changes in behavior.
The alcoholic usually denies he has a problem. "I can quit
anytime," is a popular refrain. Even if a person abstains from
drinking for a period of time, that does not necessarily mean he is
not an alcoholic. It is important to note what type of physical
and/or mental changes occur during "dry periods." Is the person
pre-occupied with drinking? Does he exhbit mood swings, ir-
ritability, anxiety, tremors, etc. In other words, is it an effort to
We as Jews, are susceptible to the same stresses as are other
people. In some ways, we have even greater pressures placed
upon us because of real and/or perceived anti-Semitism. Often, we
push ourselves to extraordinary degrees to prove our worth, to
get ahead or just to obtain the "trappings of success." So, doesn't
it figure that we could fall prey to illness? And, alcoholism is an
Until fairly recently, there were no Jewish organizations that
dealt with both the common problems of the alcoholic and the uni-
que problems of the Jewish alcoholic. The alcoholic, in general, is
ostracized from the mainstream of society. The Jewish alcoholic is
further ostracized from the Jewish community. He is often made
to feel that he has gone against the tradition of his people and in
turn has brought added shame to his family, friends and
Churches have been less reluctant to admit that alcoholism does
exist within their congregations. They have sponsored Alcoholics
Anonymous and other self-help groups. No one likes it. But, by
sticking our heads in the sand it will not go away.
JACS, Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically Dependent Persons and
Significant Others, is a non-profit group designed to help Jewish
substance abusers, their families and community. They are an ad-
dition to A.A., a very effective support program for alcoholics.
There is treament for alcoholism. The alcoholic can once again
become a productive member of his society, family and Jewish
Community. Treatment of choice involves detoxification, support
groups and individual and/or family counseling. This multi-
modality methods has proven to be the most overall effective.
If you or a member of your family is having a problem with
alcohol or drugs call Jewish Family Service at 749-1505 in Fort
Lauderdale, 955-0956 in Hollywood or 427-8508 in Deerfield
Beach. We can help you devise a treatment plan to combat this

the Jewish State. Given Israel's
character, it seems highly unlikely
that its Jewish majority would
also coalesce there will always
be a leftwing party, a rightwing
party and a religious party .
It is an irony of history that
before the State of Israel was
established, Ben-Gurion took the
stand that partition was accep-
table, so that Israel would be a
small territory with a Jewish ma-
jority, while there were two other
viewpoints, to his right and to his
left: the Herut (Revisionists) view
which said the Jews have to get all
of Palestine, and the leftist view-
point (MAPAM) which called for a
bi-national state of Jews and
Arabs living together. Ben-
Gurion's viewpoint prevailed.
Curiously enough, the right wing
(Likud, Herut) now espouses the
old leftwing view wishing to an-
nex, and form a bi-national state
with the Palestinian Arabs.
In Dinstein's view, the approach
calling for a territorial com-
promise is the valid one return
major portions of the West Bank
to Jordan which annexed them
in 1952 in return for a peace
agreement. Establishment of
another Palestinian state is not
called for, since Jordan is the
Palestinian state. On that issue,
Dinstein said, there is a national
consensus in Israel. (It is unfor-
tunate that this point is not ade-
quately propagated throughout
the world more people should
be made aware that Jordan is, in
fact, the state of the Palestinians,
especially when it gets back the
West Bank.)
But the peace with Jordan
would not bring an end to the Mid-
East conflict, since there are
other belligerent Arab states,
and, most important of all, there
are the Palestinians and the PLO
which want Israel to be erased
from the map and will not accept
peace between Israel and Jordan
as an end to the conflict.
Moreover, such a peace agree-
ment does not solve all the pro-
blems, just as it has not done it
with Egypt. "We learned the
meaning of the term 'Cold War.'
now we have the term Cold Peace
which is just as bad ."
Does King Hussein want the
West Bank back as part of Jor-
dan? "Donf worry rest assured
that he does," Prof. Dinstein

Dutch authorities have ordered
unprecedented security measures
to protect American, Israeli and
Jewish buildings and other
establishments throughout The
Netherlands from possible ter-
rorist attacks.
The Justice and Interior
ministries ordered the strong
measures in urgent telex
messages to all provincial gover-
nors and attorney generals after
receiving reports from reliable
sources abroad that Americans,
Israelis and Jews in general have
been targeted by terrorists.
Similar precautions have been
taken in Norway, Sweden and
Denmark following warnings
from Interpol, the international
police information clearing house.
Sven-Ake Hjalmroth, head of the
Swedish security services, said
"We take the Interpol warning
very seriously indeed."
He said it referred specifically
to Jewish and Israeli institutions
and installations. Swedish of-
ficials said the threat was
presumably from the Abu Nidal
terrorist network known to have
carried out the fatal attacks on El
Al passenger facilities at the
Rome and Vienna airports Dec.
In The Netherlands, heavily
armed police and gendarmerie
were highly visible near dozens of
American and Israeli institutions,

offices, schools and even at

UJA Reaffirms Project
Renewal Commitment
By Gerald S. Nagel
UJA Watch Desk Editor
Jewish Appeal has expanded its
commitment to Project Renewal
fundraising beyond the twinning
process and has reaffirmed its
determination to raise $65-million
to complete the historic
$225-million campaign.
From now on, UJA will en-
courage major donors to aid
Israeli neighborhoods besides
those twinned, or financially link-
ed, to the donor's home Jewish
community. UJA will also in-
crease the number of speakers
and consultations and offer more
materials to aid solicitors.
Renewal leaders in Jerusalem
and throughout Israel were
delighted by UJA's plans, which
were approved by UJA's national
officers upon a special Renewal
Task Force's recommendation.
UJA, when there is agreement
with local leaders, will solicit ma-
jor donors in a community that
has met its Renewal goal or is unt-
winned, such as a non-federated
community. In some cases, some
who have given to Renewal will be
asked for more aid. UJA expects
that such major giving will be ear-
marked mainly for capital pro-
jects, such as to complete a com-
munity center, preschool facility
or other structure that could bear
the donor's name.
"We recommend this policy ex-
pansion for three reasons," said
Jane Sherman of Detroit, a UJA
national vice chairman, and chair-
man of Project Renewal and the
task force. "First, one twinned
neighborhood may be as deserving
as another but may not be receiv-
ing as much support. Second, we
sought a mechanism for more ma-
jor donors to participate and this
provides it. Third, this supra-
neighborhood giving will help Pro-
ject Renewal mature into a truly
national campaign."
"American Jews have helped
Renewal residents by providing
job training and other programs
and offering hope," she added.
"This action means we'll work
harder and on a larger scale."

A Little Optimism
By M.J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
At year's end, the news from
Israel was good almost
unbelievably good when placed in
context. The consumer-price in-
dex for November was 0.5 per-
cent, if computed on an annual
basis. That one-half percent rise in
prices was the lowest monthly in-
crease in Israel in nine years.
Amazingly, Israel's November in-
flation rate was one-tenth of a
percent lower than the U.S. rate.
The national unity government
deserves a great deal of credit.
And it is getting it. The latest
Dehaf Institute poll reports that
Prime Minister Shimon Peres' ap-
proval rate is now 84 percent. On-
ly 14 percent disapprove of his
performance as Prime Minister.
According to the poll, Peres is also
viewed as the Israeli leader who
most puts country before personal
or party interest; 59 percent of
Israelis view the Prime Minister
as a patriot first. The runner-up in
that department was Likud
Minister Without Portfolio,
Moshe Arens (58 percent).
The wide support for Peres
and even more the perception of
him as a non-partisan is
remarkable. Through most of his
political career, Shimon Peres was
viewed as an "operator."
However, he has dramatically
changed the public perception of
him during his tenure as Prime
Minister. He is admired and liked
and can already be ranked as one
of Israel's strongest leaders, right
up there with David Ben-Gurion,
Golda Meir, and (the early)
Menachem Begin. It is a
remarkable transformation.
One of the most interesting
aspects of the Peres phenomenon
is that he has proven that it is still
possible to be an effective leader
of Israel. In the years just prior to
his coming to office, Israel was
torn apart by partisan political
strife. Peres and the national uni-
ty government succeeded in calm-
ing things down and in
demonstrating that Israel is
governable. Like Ronald Reagan
in the United States, Peres has
demonstrated that a strong,
charismatic leader can make a dif-
ference. Those who had thrown up
their hands in despair who had
said that both countries were
destined only for weak, ineffec-
tual leadership were proven
wrong. One may not always agree
with either man but one must con-
cede that the socialist Peres and
the conservative Reagan have
shown that it is possible to change
the course of events, even in frac-
tious democracies.
Of course, it hasn't all been
roses for the Israeli Prime
Minister. It is no secret that Peres
wants to achieve a peace agree-
ment with Jordan and the Palesti-
nians. Like most of his Labor col-
leagues, Peres would trade some
West Bank land for peace even
as Begin returned the Sinai in ex-
change for peace with Egypt. In
October, Peres went before the
United Nations General Assembly
and said that he wanted im-
mediate negotiations with a
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation.
He said that, in essence,
everything would be on the table
and he even modified Israel's
long-standing opposition to an in-
ternational peace conference.
Initially, there appeared to be a
strong and positive response from
the Arab side. King Hussein prais-
ed Peres and put out the word
that he was becoming fed up with
the intransigence and terrorism of
the PLO. Many predicted Israeli-
Jordanian talks by the end of the
It is now the end of the year
the end of the 38th year since
Golda Meir secretly visited Jordan
in an effort to persuade Hussein's
grandfather, King Abdullah, to
accept peace with a Jewish state.
That effort failed, and the Peres
initiative is stalled. Even worse,
Hussein's commitment to the idea
of peace seems to be waning. He
has refused to distance himself
from the PLO and has taken
several major steps toward rap-
prochment with his former
enemy, Hafez Assad of Syria. Jor-
danian officials now say that Am-
man will never accept a separate
peace arrangement with Israel.
Nevertheless, Peres is un-
daunted. He tells interviewers
that he sees no point to
pessimism. He will not give up on
the peace process. In fact, he has
deepened his commitment to it.
He seems to have persuaded some
of the Likud ministers to accept a
form of arbitration over the Taba
salient. Once the Taba issue is
resolved, Peres intends to meet
with President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt. He will try to convince
Mubarak to recommit himself to
the "spirit of Camp David" and to
bring King Hussein along. It
won't be an easy task but for
Peres the optimist it's the only
way he knows.

Jewish Music Season Highlights
Role of Jewish Life-Cycle Events
everything There Is a Season"
will be the theme of Jewish Music
Season, to be marked from Jan.
26 to May 14,1986, under the na-
tional aegis of the JWB Jewish
Music Council.
According to Leonard Kaplan of
Boston, chairman of the JWB
Jewish Music Council, "We are
holding Jewish Music Season as a
way of highlighting the role of
Jewish life-cycle events. Music has
always been an integral part of
the Jewish experience and of
Jewish educational programming.
It has contributed texture to the
Jewish events which mark our
"Jewish Music Season will also
open the door to the tremendous
variety of Jewish music used in
Jewish education in synagogues,
Jewish Community Centers and
schools, and will foster the bonds
of Klal Yisrael."
The 16-by-20 inch poster
heralding Jewish Music Season
was created by New York artist
Karen Leon. Of her creation, the
artist says, "JWB wanted
something that wasn't typical.
Since the theme of Jewish Musk
Season is 'To Everything There Is
a Season' and music for the
Jewish life-cycle will be featured, I
saw that this involved building up
Jewish experiences and connec-
ting them one to the other.
Building blocks seemed to be the
ideal way to get the message
"Since we start with our Jewish
children, and naturally move
through all the stages of our
Jewish lives, building blocks are a
'natural.' And, of course, building
blocks are colorful."
The theme of Jewish Music
Season runs across a number of
the blocks. Across others, in
Hebrew, are the words for
Bar/Bat Mitzvah, huppah (wed-
ding canopy) and kaddish. At the
bottom is the phrase, "seasons of
our lives."
Two full-color Jewish Music
Season posters will be part of the
1986 Jewish Music Kit that will
also include a Resource Guide,
Seasons of Our Lives: Jewish
Music for Life-Cycle Occasions by
Cantor Bruce Reuben and Judith
Clurman. Cantor Reuben current-
ly serves Temple Shaaray Tefila in
New York City. His wife Judith
Clurman has conducted, sung in
opera, oratorio, recital, and televi-
sion, and taught at the Juilliard
School, and Hebrew Union Col-
lege School of Sacred Music.
The resource guide includes a
wide selection of music, books,
films and videos cantorial
works, songs from popular collec-
tions, Hasidic tunes, Yiddish
songs and others. In their in-
troduction, the authors state that
the purpose of the resource guide
is to give Jewish professionals
rabbis, cantors, music educators
and others "an opportunity to
creatively enrich the musical
traditions for life-cycle occasions:
birth, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, confirma-
tion, wedding, death and
The kits, designed to help com-
munities plan programs and
celebrations during Jewish Music
Season, are available at $10 each,
including postage and handling,
pre-paid from the JWB Jewish
Music Council, 16 East 26th St.,
New York, N.Y. 10010-1579.
According to Marcia Posner, ac-
ting Jewish Music Council coor-
dinator, "We think that the poster
is a beautiful, colorful statement
which will stimulate programs
across the country."
In sjrfJitio'r to the kit, the JWB
Jewish Music Council has a wealth
of resources, which includes the
Jewish Center Songster and a
variety of program aids, Jewish
music historical publications, and
bibliographies of Jewish music.
Jewish Music Season runs from
Shabbat Shiran (the Sabbath of
Song) to Yom Ha-Atzmaut (Israel
Independence Day).
JWB enriches Jewish educa-
tional experiences as the leader-
ship network and central service
agency for 275 JCCs, YM
YWHAs and camps in the U.S.
and Canada, serving more than 1
million Jews.

American Jewry with informal
Jewish education and Jewish
culture through the JWB Lecture

Soviet Jewry Update
Catholic Student Ends 25-day Fast for Refusenik
By Judith Kohn
Paul, a University of Minnesota
senior who grew up a Catholic in
Appleton, Wise., recently ended a
26-day hunger strike that she
began on behalf of Soviet Jewish
refusenik, Inna Meiman, who has
been denied a visa to go to the
West for treatment of cancer.
Paul, 24, fought back tears as
she told of her friendship with
Meiman and other refuseniks and
dissidents at a Capitol press con-
ference sponsored by the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews and
hosted by Sen. Paul Simon (D.,
111.). The young woman, whose
major is Russian studies, spent
two years in the Soviet Union as a
domestic taking care of children.
She said she met Meiman, 54, a
former professor of English, when
she sought a tutor in the Russian
Paul said she undertook her
hunger strike, with the reluctant
approval of Meiman, in the hope it
would arouse awareness of
Meiman's case. If nothing else,
she said, it may have offered her a
spark of hope.
Meiman first applied for a visa
to go to Israel in 1979. It was
denied initially on grounds that
she had no close relatives there.
More recently she was informed
she could not leave the USSR
because her mathematician hus-
band, Naum Meiman, 74, was
privy to classified information
which made her a security risk.
Meiman's classified work ended
in 1955 when he left the Institute
of Physical Problems at the Soviet
Academy of Science. He main-
tains it involved pure
mathematics which has long ceas-
ed to have any significance in
security matters.
He has obtained the signature of
the director of the Institute of
Theoretical and Experimental
Phvsics, where he worked until
Former Refusenik Harbors Little
Hard Feelings Toward Soviet Union
By Kevin Freeman
Nashpitz says he cannot explain
why after nearly 15 years he was
suddenly granted permission to
emigrate from the Soviet Union to
Israel. But despite the years of
harassment and difficult times, in-
cluding five years in internal exile,
he says he harbors little hard feel-
ings toward the Soviet Union or
its people.
"I'm not anti-Soviet," he
asserted in an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency at the
offices of the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry. "It's just not my
country. We wanted out of the
Soviet Union. They can have their
problems; they're not my
Nashpitz, 37, along with his wife
Ludmilla and thier five-year-old
son Benyamin, arrived in Israel
last October after having first ap-
plied for an exit visa to Israel in
January, 1970. He was denied exit
because he was a "relative of an il-
legal emigrant."
Nashpitz's father, Chaim.
defected while on a mission with a
delegation to Denmark some 30
years ago, when Mrk was eight
years old. Nashpitz who now lives
in Tel Aviv, has since been
reunited with his parents, Ita and
Chaim of Haifa. Ita Nashpitz was
allowed to leave the USSR once
informed of the decision he does
give much credit to persistent ef-
forts on the part of activists in the
U.S., Congress and, in particular,
the Alpha Omega International
Dental Fraternity.
A dentist specializing in mouth
diseases, he lost his practice in the
Soviet Union and is now studying
in Jerusalem to sharpen his skills
and learn the use of new in-
struments and technology. His
visit to the U.S., his first trip to
the West, included receiving an
award presented to him by Alpha
Omega at its annual conference in
Boston last month.
Nashpitz was also accorded a
Capitol Hill reception held by Rep.
Benjamin Gilman (R., N.Y.).
Gilman said that since he was first
elected to Congress in 1972, he
has taken an active role in seeking
permission for Nashpitz to
"Mark's presence in our midst
today," Gilman told the audience
in Washington, "is concrete proof
that the issue of human rights for
Soviet Jews is not really an
ideological exercise engaged in
only at the policy level."
Gilman pointed out that over
400,000 Soviet Jews have begun
the application process to leave
the Soviet Union. They are, he
said, "real flesh and blood in-
dividuals, not merely names on
placards or photographs on
demonstration posters."
In the interview Nashpitz said
he does not feel the Soviet people
are anti-Semitic. "The Russian
people, I think, are not anti-
Semitic," he said. The govern-
ment, he added, "has good pro-
paganda" which, he noted,
delivers almost a daily dosage of
attacks on Israel and Zionism.
He said that Soviet citizens
don't know or understand the con-
cept of Zionism. With this, he
pointed to a program that will be
aired over the Public Broad-
casting System throughout the
United States. The documentary,
"The Jews of Moscow," provides
a fairly accurate view of the life or
refuseniks in the Soviet Union, he
Nashpitz, along with a host of
invited guests and reporters,
previewed the documentary at
WNET-TV, the PBS station in
New York. The 60-minute
documentary, narrated by
Theodore Bikel, was first produc-
ed for Danish television by Samuel
Rachlin, a Danish TV correspon-
dent, who just completed a seven-
year assignment in Moscow.
THE PROGRAM, while depic-
ting efforts of Jews in Moscow to
maintain their religious traditions
and cultural roots, also focuses on
the work of the soviet Anti-Zionist
Committee, composed of a hand-
ful of Jews. The Committee claims
there was collusion between the
Nazis and Zionists and that all
those Jews wishing to emigrate
have already done so.
At the conclusion of the film,
there is a brief interview, with,
among others Edgar Bronfman,
president of the World Jewish
Congress, who recently returned
from a business trip to the Soviet
Union. It has been widely
reported that Bronfman has been
acting as an intermediary bet-
ween Israel and the Soviets for an
airlift of Jews from the Soviet
Responding to this report,
Bronfman tells the interviewer,
Hendrick Smith, a former Moscow
Bureau Chief of The New York
Times, that "I have no indication
of it, and I think I certainly would
have, had that been the indica-
tion." He also termed the reports
as "made out of cloth."
In addition, Bronfman also said
that although the Soviets publicly
reject the idea of linking human
rights to increased tade with the
U.S., "privately I think there's a
definite linkage, and I thin, that
one can deal with this on a private
Shcharansky Given Additional
Five-Month Isolation Term
By Gil Sedan
wife of imprisoned Jewish activist
Anatoly Shcharansky has told
Israel Radio that her husband,
now in the tenth year of a 13-> mr
prison sentence imposed in 1977,
has been given an additional five-
month sentence to be served in
isolation in a prison compound in
the Soviet labor camp where he is
now confined.
A vital Shcharansky said she
learned from friends in Moscow
that he was being punished for go-
ing on a hunger strike recently to
protest the non-delivery of his
mail by the camp authorities. Last
year he spent 55 days in an isola-
tion cell where, according to Mrs.
Shcharansky, prisoners are fed
once every two days.
She said that her husband's
mother, who also lives in Israel,
has not had direct word from
Anatoly since the beginning of Oc-
tober. His last letter, supposed t
have been sent at the beginning of
December, has not been received.
It was then that her inquiries led
to the information that he was
given a new sentence.
Shcharansky, 38, a scientist and
emigration activist, was arrested
March 15, 1977 on charges of
treason and spying for the United
States. He was sentenced to three
years in prison and 10 years in a
labor camp. He is presently in a
labor camp in the Ural mountains.
1975 when he was fired after
applying for an exit visa to Israel
on a certificate confirming that
he was involved only in abstract
mathematics and that the results
of his work have been published in
Soviet scientific journals.
The certificate was also signed
by the secretary of the local Com-
munist Party branch and the head
of the local trade union, but to no
Two years ago, Inna Meiman
discovered a cancerous growth in
the muscle tissue of her neck. She
has undergone four major opera-
tions. Soviet doctors told her fur-
ther surgery was unfeasible. Her
condition deteriorated.
In a CBS-TV videotape inter-
view arranged by Paul when she
was in Moscow last summer,
Meiman said the tumor, diagnosed
as sarcoma of the soft tissues, was
dangerously close to her brain and
spine. She said treatment by non-
surgical means, such as radiation,
was obtainable only in the West.
Her husband, meanwhile, wrote
an open letter to Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev last October
about his wife's condition. As a
consequence, she was invited to
receive treatment by cancer
clinics in Sweden, France, the
United States and Israel.
Paul described a Catch-22 situa-
tion. She said Meiman was told by
Soviet visa authorities that she
would need a note from the Health
Ministry confirming that she re-
quired treatment abroad. But
Health Ministry officials said they
were forbidden to issue such
statements. Since Paul returned
to the U.S. sue months ago she has
written letters to Congressmen
and Reagan Administration of-
ficials, including Vice President
George Bush, on behalf of
Meiman. Concluding that she had
exhausted all other options, she
decided to undertake a 25-day
hunger strike to focus not only on
Inna Meiman's struggle but the
issue it represents. She won her
friend's reluctant approval in a
telephone conversation and subse-
quently in a letter urging that she
fast not just for her personally but
for the cause of all refuseniks.
Paul said she prepared for her
fast by gradually reducing her
food intake. During the 25 days,
she went without food but did con-
sume fruit juices and vitamins.
In addition to Simon and Sen.
Gary Hart (D., Colo.), both of
whom visited Meiman in Moscow,
Paul's press conference was at-
tended by other members of Con-
gress and by the daughter of
Meiman's husband, Olga Plum, a
resident of Colorado. The press
conference was addressed by
William Taylor, director of the
Center for National Policy Review
at Catholic University Law School
in Washington, D.C.
Taylor who met with Meiman
and her husband, speculated that
the Soviets might be content to let
her die. He said the couple had
contemplated a hunger strike of
their own but decided it would be

dividual Retirement Accounts
(IRA's) can now make a purchase
of $2,000, or multiples of $2,000,
of the Individual Variable Rate
Issue (IVRI) of State of Israel
Bonds for their IRA's, David
Sklar, South Broward campaign
chairman, has announced. The
current annual interest rate is
7.75 percent.
Stating that some 37 million
Americans place $2,000 each year
in IRA accounts, Sklar added:
"All of Israel's friends now have
an opportunity to strengthen its
economy, receive an attractive
return, and enjoy the savings and
tax benefits of an IRA with an in-
vestment of $2,000, or multiples
of $2,000, in an IVRI Bond. With
such an investment, everyone is a
winner the investor and the
people of Israel."
The IVRI Bond's annual in-
terest rate is a minimum of 6 per
cent plus 50 per cent of the excess
of 6 per cent of the average of the
prime rates quoted by Citibank,
Bank of America and the First
National Bank of Chicago each
April 1 and October 1. The Bond
matures ten years from date of
Employee benefit plans
(including IRA or Keogh Plans)
which invest in IVRI Bonds, may
redeem them after three years on
120 days' notice.
Like all Israel Bonds, the IVRI
Bond is a direct and unconditional
obligation of the State of Israel
which pledges Israel's full faith
and credit for payment of prin-
cipal and interest.
The Israel Bond Organization
has mobilized close to $7.5 billion
since its inception in 1951 to help
build every aspect of Israel's
economy. Of that sum, more than
$4 billion has been repaid by the
Israel Government to holders of
matured bonds.
The Bond campaign is a major
source of development capital for
Israel. Its proceeds, channeled
through Israel's Development
Budget, help to finance industrial
and agricultural projects, the con-
struction of highways and har-
bors, the expansion of com-
munications and transport, the
building of new towns and the
development of new sources of
A total of $505 million in cash
proceeds were mobilized in 1985
for Israel's economic development
by the State of Israel Bond
Organization from sales of its
various Israel securities, David B.
Hermelin, national campaign
chairman, recently announced.
The increase of more than $91
million over the Bond organiza-
tion's results for the previous
year, he said, represents the best
Israel Bond campaign achieve-
ment in the 35-year history of
Israel Bonds with the exception of
the Yom Kippur War year of
In his statement, Mr. Hermelin
declared that the outstanding
response was an outcome of the
"favorable atmosphere created by
Israel's austerity program which
reduced inflation this past year
and which restored the confidence
of individual and institutional pur-
chasers of our securities in
Israel's economic future."
He continued: "These record
results reflect the continuing uni-
ty of Jewish communities abroad
with the people of Israel who have
willingly accepted budget cuts and
are making many sacrifices in
order to help the Government of
Israel stabilize the economy and
achieve a speedy economic
Mr. Hermelin expressed the
special thanks of the Bond
Organization to "all our dedicated
Bond volunteers, including our na-
tional leaders and our community
chairmen, who worked so hard
this year to help achieve these en-
couraging results."
He also attributed the outstan-
ding 1985 achievement to the very
substantial Bond investments by
Israel'8 friends in the banking
community, the corporate world,
labor and employee benefit plans.
The 1985 results brought to $7.5
billion the total proceeds mobiliz-
ed for Israel's economy by the
Bond Organization since its incep-
tion in 1951. More than $4 billion
has been repaid by the Govern-
ment of Israel to holders of
matured Bonds.

projects throughout the country,
but their needs grow constantly
and Amit Women must grow pro-
portionately to absorb the addi-
tional costs of providing for even
their basis necessities.
"Shabbat Shirah, with its
message of spiritual and national
initiative on the part of Jewish
women, has obvious significance
for Amit Women," she said. "This
is why we have chosen to reach
out to concerned Jews in com-
munities all over the country on
this Shabbat, asking them to add
their support to our vital work."
Among Amit contirbutions to
the fabric of Israel's life have been
the establishment of the first
vocational high school for girls;
the establishment of the first set-
tlement houses on the American
plan in Jerusalem; the develop-
ment of self-governing children's
villages in Israel and pioneering
efforts in childhood development.
In 1981, Amit Women was
designated Israel's official
RESHET (Network) for religious
secondary technological education
by the Ministry of Education.

Israeli Inner Cabinet Overcomes Taba Obstacle

explained after the meeting that
Israeli and Egyptian diplomats
will meet now to draft the terms
of reference for the arbitrators
and simultaneously work out
details of normalization. He said
he hoped this process would take
no more than a few weeks.
The Israeli diplomats are Gen.
(Res.) Avraham Tamir, director
general of the Prime Minister's
Office, and David Kimche, direc-
tor general of the Foreign
Ministry. Both were involved in
the earlier talks with Egypt which
produced the formula adopted by
the Inner Cabinet. Kimche is

mtcis security, and we must
stand with all our might to protect
its right to exist (and) its ter-
ritorial integrity. Israel is one
of the great outposts of
democracy in the world, and a
marvelous example of what can be
done, how desert land can be
transformed into an oasis of
brotherhood and democracy.
Peace for Israel means security
and that security must be a
reality.' "
"In his life's work," Mrs.
Levine noted, "Dr. King ex-
emplified the interdependence
and inteiTelatedness we all share,
as individuals and as members of
ethnic, religious and racial com-
munities, in the quest for freedom
and dignity. He understood that
none of us can go it alone; that
none of us can achieve our goals or
sustain our achievements without
entering into supportive coali-
tions. The ways in which Dr. King
put these principles into practice,
along with our desire to see social
justice, is what drew so many
American Jews to march at his
side from Selma to Montgomery
and in Washington, D.C., and to
support his work throughout the
1950s and 1960s.
"Dr. King lived to see the enact-
ment of the landmark civil rights
legislation of the 1960s," said
Mrs. Levine. "Yet there is still a
long distance to go in translating
the concept of equal opportunity
embodied in that legislation into
reality. Seventeen years after his
passing, millions of Americans, in-
cluding millions of blacks, still suf-
fer severe social and economic
"This past Jan. 20," the
NJCRAC leader concluded, "our
nation honored Dr. King's
Memory, his work, his
achievements, and his legacy. It
was a day when we Americans
rededicated ourselves to the task
of continuing the work Martin
Luther King was so cruelly
prevented from completing. And
let us do so in a spirit of universal
concern about human rights at
home and abroad, regardless of
the race, color, creed or national
origin of either the oppressed or
their oppressors."
presently in Greece for talks and

The new phase of talks with
Egypt will probably await his
A leading Egyptian politician,
former Prime Minister Mustapha
Khalil, told the Israel Army Radio
in an interview, that Cairo viewed
the latest Cabinet decision as a
positive move that will be followed
by an improvement in relations
with Israel. Khalil, who is close to
Mubarak, said the Taba dispute
was the main bone of contention
between the two countries and
was largely responsible for the
coolness between them in recent
Peres told reporters that the
prospect of a summit meeting bet-
ween himself and Mubarak was
"closer this morning than it was
the night," when the Inner
Cabinet convened for the crucial
But the Egyptian Charge d'Af-
faires in Tel Aviv, Mohammed
Bassiouni, suggested that a sum-
mit was not yet in sight. He said,
after meeting with Peres and get-
ting the text of the Inner
Cabinet's decision, that the next
step would be for the two sides to
negotiate the terms of their
Although he, too, described the
Cabinet decision as "positive,"
Bassiouni stressed that it was just
a stage on the road to a com-
prehensive peace. Analysts noted
that this was an expression that
despite its continued peace with
Israel, Egypt has not deserted its
commitment to the Arab world to
resolve the Palestinian issue.
One of the key conditions
demanded by Likud and incor-
porated into the Cabinet decision
was, in Levy's words, the removal
of the presence of terrorism in
Egypt and Egypt's ironclad com-
mitment not to assist or en-
courage terrorists. Likud had
demanded originally that Egypt
eject Palestinian Liberation
Organization representatives
from Cairo.
But specific reference to the
PLO apparently was deleted.
Peres had argued earlier that
Egypt could hardly be asked to
oust the PLO when the PLO main-
tained offices in many Western
European capitals.
Levy also listed Israel's long-
standing demand that the Cairo
media desist from its scathing and
often crude attacks on Israel. An
Israel Radio reporter's telephone
calls to Cairo elicited a less than
favorable response on that point.
The reporter was told by Egyp-
tian officials that the Israeli media
was far from free of strong at-
tacks in Egypt, but Egypt never
asked Israel to muzzle its press.
But such matters are expected
to resolve themselves if, as Peres
contends, a settlement over Taba
will lead to a settlement of all
other bilateral issues in a speedy
and friendly manner. The latter
was the primary aim of Peres and
his Labor Party colleagues who
were inclined to be flexible on ar-
bitration. They consider Taba, a
tiny sliver of beach on the Red Sea
without strategic or economic
value, not worth an ongoing and
widening breach with Egypt.
Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir,
who is Foreign Minister and
Deputy Premier, held out for con-
ciliation with arbitration only as a
last resort. Shamir argued that ar-
bitration, because it is a quasi-
legal process, would only exacer-
bate tensions with Egypt whereas
conciliation, leas formal, would
not have such an effect.
The 1979 Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty provided for both processes
to settle disputes that cannot be
resolved by bilateral diplomacy.
Arbitration is binding and both
sides must agree to accept the
decision of the arbitrator as final.
Conciliation, essentially a com-
promise between rival claims, can
be effective only if both parties
voluntarily live up to the com-
promise agreements.
These are essentially legalistic
matters. The differences between
Labor and Likud ran much deeper
and were more of a philosophical
nature. Labor was prepared to
yield on some matters in exchange
for better relations with Egypt.
Likud believes in standing tough,
making no concessions.
The Inner Cabinet session was
reported to have been one of the
stormiest between the coalition
partners, marked by loud, hostile
exchanges between Labor and
Likud ministers. At several junc-
tures, the meeting was adjourned
temporarily to allow tempers to
