He's Being Punished
Vanunu Denied Family Visits

- (JTA) Prison
authorities are punishing
Mordechai Vanunu for
flashing a message to
reporters indicating that he
was kidnapped in Rome last
September. Police, mean-
while, are questioning Ber-
nard Josephs, Jerusalem
correspondent of the Stan-
dard of London who was the
first to transmit Vanunu's
message abroad, in violation
of censorship.
The Foreign Ministry has
acknowledged that the Israeli
Ambassador in Rome, Mordechai
Drory, had been summoned to the
Italian Foreign Ministry and ask-
ed for clarification of Vanunu's
allegation which was published
YOSSI BEILIN, political direc-
tor general of the Foreign
Ministry here, said that the Israeli
envoy told the Italian authorities
he had no information and would
pass their request to Jerusalem.
Beilin said Israel would "very
seriously consider" a request from
the Italian government. He told
reporters that Vanunu's message
should not be "taken too

Peres Says:
Shin Bet Affair Is
Now A Closed Book
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres maintained Tuesday
that the Shin Bet affair is a
closed book and rejected
suggestions that he was
harmed by the report of a
panel of legal experts which
investigated the scandal.
Shin Bet is Israel's internal
security service.
The report was sharply critical
of the former chief of Shin Bet,
Avraham Shalom, whose earlier
testimony seemed to implicate
Premier Yitzhak Shamir in the
1984 killing of two captured Arab
bus hijackers by Israeli agents and
its subsequent cover-up.
PERES, who became Prime
Minister shortly after the inci-
dent, did not demand Shalom's
resignation and raised no objec-
tions to the pardon later granted
Shalom and several of his
associates by President Chaim
Replying to reporters' ques-
tions, Peres said he saw nothing
wrong in his support of Shalom.
"When I came in (to the affair)
it was after two stages of juridical
consideration and I feel that I
have acted in accordance," he
said. He was referring to the two
commissions of inquiry at which
Shalom and others testified.
Peres said he accepted fully the
juridical conclusions of the legal
panel which absolved Shamir and
the entire political echelon of
responsibility for the acts of Shin
Bet in this case. "There is no
reason to try and find anything
(more) and I have no reason to try
to justify myself' Peres said.
Avraham Sharir also told
reporters Tuesday that he con-
sidered the report to have closed
the affair.
"The first order of business is to
get the General Security Services
(Shin Bet) back on an even keel
and restore morale," he said. He
said the killing of the bus hijackers
after their capture was an
"isolated affair" not typical of
how the secret service operates.
Shamir Accepts Peretz
Resignation With Regret
Interior Minister Yitzhak
Peretz formally submitted
his resignation to Premier
Yitzhak Shamir at Sunday's
Cabinet meeting, and it was
accepted with regret. It
takes effect in 48 hours.
Peretz, who heads the ultra-
Orthodox Shas Party, quit rather
than comply with a Supreme
Court order to register as a Jew
Shoahana Miller, a recent im-
migrant from the U.S. who was
converted to Judaism by an
Emrican Reform rabbi. His depar-
ture from the Cabinet is not ex-
pected to lead to the defection of
Shas, which has four Knesset
seats, from the unity coalition

Sexual Abuse
Jewish Child Molestation Reported on Rapid Rise
By JTA Services
Two Jewish welfare agen-
cies in major Canadian cities
have reported that sexual
abuse of Jewish children is
on the increase. The reports
were made by Sam Reiss,
supervisor of special
resources of the Jewish
Family and Child Service in
Toronto; and Rabbi Steven
Solomon, protective ser-
vices director of the Jewish
Family Services Social Ser-
vice Center in Montreal.
Reiss declared that the Jewish
community's lack of recognition
of child abuse has perpetuated the
problem for many years.
He said that last year the JFCS
received 146 allegations of child
abuse, 40 more than in 1984. Once
the agency decides some form of
abuse is taking place, it conducts
an investigation.
Reiss reported that the JFCS
substantiated 101 cases in 1986.

Prison Authorities Punish Vanunu,
Deny Family Right To Visit
Former nuclear technician Mordechai
Vanunu, accused of revealing Israel's atomic
secrets, presses his hand to the window of a
police van on his way from a Jerusalem court,
where it was ruled he will be held in custody
until his trial. The message on his hand reads:
'Vanunu was hijacked from Rome, ITL.,
S0.1.86.2100.' The S0.9 means Sept. SO, 1986,
and the 2100 is the time of the alleged hijack-
ing, or 9 p.m., aboard a British Airways flight
from London to Rome.
No Blockade,
Israel Says
denied Sunday that it has imposed
a naval blockade on the Lebanese
port of Junieh, north of Beirut,
but acknowledged that its Navy
intercepted a Cypriot car ferry
bound there from Larnaca last
Friday, in international waters,
because Palestinian terrorists
were believed aboard.
A report from Nicosia said the
Cypriot government accused
Israel of halting two car ferries
Friday and has lodged a strong
protest with the Israeli
Junieh, in the Christian-held
area of Lebanon, is used by
Lebanese Christians and others
who travel abroad to avoid Beirut
airport in Moselm-held West
Beirut. The ferries run a daily
14-hour shuttle to Larnaca.
The 8,187-ton ferry Empress
was intercepted on the high seas
Friday enroute to Junieh. Its cap-
tain was ordered by a loud hailer
to hand over any Palestinian ter-
rorists and their weapons
reportedly aboard The captain
refused and was ordered by the
Israel Navy to return to Larnaca.
The 3,000-ton ferry Sunny Boat
was also intercepted and turned
back, according to Cypriot
authorities who denied either
vessel carried terrorists or
weapons. Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres said the Navy acted
in a "routine" manner to prevent
Palestinian terrorists from retur-
ning to Lebanon. He said such
operations were carried out when
there was reason to believe ter-
rorists were trying to use the sea
route to re-infiltrate Lebanon.
Cyprus reported Sunday that
the ferries had resumed service.
The Empress carried 600
passengers to Junieh and the Sun-
ny Boat carried 250 without
On June 29, 1984, Israel Navy
gunboats intercepted the Cypriot-
owned Panamanian-flag car ferry

authorities removed nine of its 63
passengers for questioning. The
vessel was released later the same
Shirman To Receive Transplant,
Outlook Said To Be Poor
Michael Shirman, a 31-year-old
leukemia victim, will receive a
bone-marrow transplant from his
sister, Inessa Flerova, at
Hadassah Hospital here in a final
attempt to save his life.
But doctors said that the pro-
gnosis was not good because his
condition has deteriorated and it
may have been too late to save
him when Inessa arrived in Israel
Nov. 5 after a nine-month strug-
gle with Soviet authorities to get
exit visas for her whole family.
According to the doctors, Shir-
man may have had a chance had
his sister, the only possible donor,
been allowed to come to Israel
when she first applied for a visa
last February.
They said the transplant pro-
cedure was postponed for more
than a month because of Shir-
man's weakened condition. It has
worsened in recent weeks, and he

Vanunu, a former technician at
the Dimona nuclear facility, accus-
ed of giving Israeli nuclear secrets
to a British newspaper, was
remanded in custody until the end
of his trial by a Jerusalem District
While being driven to the court,
he pressed a palm against the win-
dow of the police van. Printed in
ink on his skin was the message:
"Vanunu M. was hijacked in
Rome 30.9.86 2100. Came Rome
by BA Fly 504." The latter was
taken as a reference to British
Airways daily flight from London
to Rome.
THE DATE coincided with the
first report that Vanunu was miss-
ing from London. Israeli
authorities refused to
acknowledge until November that
he was in fact in Israel. They said
he came voluntarily but would not
disclose when or how.
Vanunu has been held virtually
incommunicado and had only
fleeting contact with the media on
his way to and from the district
For attempting to pass a
message he has since been depriv-
ed of visits by his family, barred
from receiving reading matter in
his cell, and his Walkman radio
was taken from him.
The Government Press Office
announced that Josephs, who is
also a member of the Jerusalem
Post staff, will be denied any
privileges in his capacity as cor-
respondent for the Standard, pen-
ding conclusion of a police
GPO source said they would
cooperate fully with the censor-
ship board to crack down on
foreign newsmen working in
Israel. Israeli newspapers were
allowed to publish Vanunu's
message only after his
photographed palm had appeared
on front pages and television
screens all over the world.
Security Devices
On Exhibit
latest security and anti-terrorist
devices, reflecting Israel's years
of experience in that field, will be
featured at the first international
congress and exhibition pro-
moting the export of such items to
be held here next June. About 100
manufacturers will participate.
The exhibition, called "Sedat,"
an acronym for security, defense
and anti-terrorism, will be financ-
ed by the Ministries of Police,
Defense and Commerce and In-
dustry. The devices will not only
be displayed but will be
demonstrated in mock hijackings
and hostage rescue operations.
The equipment includes highly
sophisticated robot sappers
already in use by the Israeli police
to dismantle suspicious-looking
objects. Much of it is less than five
years old. Exports of such devices
are expected to reach $60-70
million this year.
Countries interested in them in-
clude The Netherlands, Finland,
Brazil, Argentina, Zaire, and
Japan which are expected to send

or, indeed, the ethnic slurs of the bigot or
Circus Rabbi
His super-gloss Rolls Royce, leather jacket
and inveterate lap dog have been long-
established symbols of Rabbi Emmet Frank
of the All People's Reform Synagogue.
Whatever he or his synagogue may be, two
things are certain: that although his creden-
tials may be bonafide, somewhere along the
way he has become no real rabbi in any
sense of the word that a Jew can unders-
tand; moreover, his "synagogue" is an
agonizing distortion of that sacred institu-
tion and its functions.
One may say of Rabbi Frank that his
spiritual leadership is more a circus than a
source of genuine Jewish religious ex-
perience. Perhaps that is why he was the
perfect officiating clergyman at a wedding
last week of an elephant trainer and a cotton
candy-seller under a tent outside of the
Miami Beach Convention Center, where the
Baraum and Bailey and Ringling Bros. Cir-
cus had been performing.
Just to hammer the point home, two
elephants served as bridesmaids.
Poor Judgment
Is all of this funny? Perhaps just for a mo-
ment. More to the point is that to non-Jews
in a multi-ethnic community such as South
Florida's, Rabbi Frank and his antics give to
Judaism a quality that is repellent. It
reduces to travesty the supreme spiritual
purpose of our noble faith, for whom
millions have been slaughtered Hashem. And to millions of other Jews still
suffering the heel of anti-Semitic oppression
Sales of Israel Bonds
Since 1951 Pass $8
Billion Mark In Cash
NEW YORK Sales of State of Israel Bonds,
which have helped in building: Israel's infrastructure
and other aspects of its economy since the inception
of the Bond campaign in 1951, today passed the $8
billion figure in cash, it was announced by David B.
Hermelin of Detroit, International Campaign Chair-
man of the Bond Organization.
Of the $8 billion in Israel Government securities
sold to individuals and institutions during the past 35
years, an estimated $4.5 billion has been repaid by the
Government of Israel to holders of Israel Bonds as
they matured.
In his announcement, Mr. Hermelin declared: "We
believe that our $8 billion sales milestone is one of the
most remarkable people-to-people achievements in
the annals of efforts in support for Israel. This
historic accomplishment represents the highest and
most tangible expression of the ties which unite
Jewish communities abroad with the State of Israel."
He continued, "It also represents the confidence of
the general community, which includes tens of
thousands of banks, pension funds and employee
benefit plans which invested in Israel Bonds."
The Israel Bond campaign was launched by the first
Prime Minister of the State of Israel, David Ben-
Gurion, and a group of American-Jewish leaders at a
time when the newly-established state was struggling
for its survival. It later expanded into Canada and
countries in Western Europe and Latin America.
Major economic advances made in the past with the
help of Israel Bond funds have included harbor expan-
sion; oil pipeline and terminal construction; develop-
ment of telecommunications systems; the national
water carrier; as well as roads and highways.
Other projects helped by Bond proceeds included
the establishment of development towns and science-
based industries.

just plain uninitiated, it feeds their pre-
judicial will.
Then why does a major national publica-
tion such as the Miami Herald publish a
giant photograph of the elephantine
ceremony with Rabbi Frank officiating? It is
the Herald that has, for years, been touting
Miami as a multi-ethnic center, where peo-
ple must learn to live in harmony and
respect one another's heritages and tradi-
tions. For this, it is to be commended.
How, then, can the photo be explained?
Surely, this is not what the Miami Herald in-
tended. Can it be that those editorial per-
sons responsible for choosing the photo,
rather than another representing Judaism in
an honest light, had their own bad joke in
mind at the expense of the Herald's highest
editorial principles?
A Shameful Giving-In
It is easy to understand why Israel wanted
so much for New York's Archbishop O'Con-
nor to visit. It is easy to understand the Car-
dinal's view of then-Prime Minister Shimon
Peres' invitation made when Mr. Peres was
in New York early last October: the gesture
of a friend which the Cardinal was suddenly
anxious to accept.
But somewhere on the way to the Middle
East, the Vatican intruded and set down a
basic principle: the Cardinal would have to
appear in Israel only informally; he would
not be able to meet with the nation's top
leaders in their offices; he would even have
to refuse a guided tour of Jerusalem's Chris-
tian holy places with Mayor Teddy Kollek.
Why? Because all of that would symbolize
recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital
If little else, the Catholic ideologues in the
Vatican are nothing if not consistent in their
attitude toward the Jewish State.
We can only marvel at Israel's brave
statements that its highest officials would
refuse to meet with Cardinal O'Connor on
the Vatican's terms. But suddenly, the coun-
try's brave words turned into lily-livered
cowardice. Circumventions of the Vatican's
restrictions were acceded to in order for at
least some of the officials to meet with the
Cardinal: President Herzog at his residence
(not an official bureau), for example.
Why could the Vatican be firm in its
refusal and the Jewish State not? After all,
the Vatican has a long history of firm
refusals when it comes to Jews, some two
miilenia of it. Could not the Jews, at least
once, show pride in their faith, their nation
and their holy capital city and stick to their
original word?
Doubtless, there are many who will point
to the benefits that resulted from the unof-
ficial official meetings. But what about yet
one more view of Israel smitten again by
the keepers of the keys to the New
Kingdom? And gratefully acceding to it?

Jewish organizations were
more active in December
than ever during the holiday
season in an intramural
legal struggle over the
display of Chanukah
menorahs on government
The Lubavitch movement plac-
ed large menorahs in 60 or 60 such
sites this year, including Boston,
Chicago, Philadelphia, Trenton,
N.J., and Washington, D.C., ac-
cording to Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky,
a Lubavitch spokesman. And the
movement helped municipalities
to defend themselves in court with
nearly complete success as they
cooperate with Lubavitch's 12 or
13-year program of placing
menorahs in hundreds of public
THAT EFFORT has been op-
posed in policy statements and
behind-the-scenes negotiations by
the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council, its
local affiliates and the American
Jewish Committee, American
Jewish Congress and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, as well as in litigation aid-
ed by AJCongress and ADL.
These organizations also dispute
the placement of creches on
government property.
At issue is how to interpret the
nine-candle candelabra and the
nativity scene: Are they religious
objects, and if so, does that
preclude their display on public
Two recent Supreme Court rul-
ings seem most relevant. In Lynch
v. Donnelly (1984), the court held
that a nativity scene sponsored by
the City of Pawtucket, R.I., and

displayed in a private park with
model reindeer was permissible
because it was a seasonal holiday
display, not exclusively a
Christmas one.
In McCreary v. Stone (1985), a
4-4 decision on the constitutionali-
ty of a privately-sponsored creche
displayed alone on Scarsdale,
N.Y., public property left un-
changed a lower court ruling that
allowed the creche.
THE LYNCH ruling was the
basis of Federal District Judge
Barron McCune's decision Dec. 15
to turn down a request for a
preliminary injunction against the
display of a menorah and creche in
The menorah was built on the
grounds of the Pittsburgh City-
County Building beside a
Christmas tree. The creche was
placed inside the Allegheny Coun-
ty Courthouse next to ar-
rangements of poinsettias.
The plaintiffs, a group of Pitt-
sburgh residents represented by
the ADL and the American Civil
Liberties Union, plan to continue
their protest in the federal courts,
according to Ruti Teitel of the
ADL legal affairs department.
They point to the "Establish-
ment Clause," which prohibits the
government from malting "a law
regarding the establishment of
religion.' Because the menorah
and creche are religious objects,
they argue, to display them on
government property implies
government sponsorship, and
thus violates the First
HOWARD Ross, western Penn-
sylvania and West Virginia
regional director of ADL, con-
tended that just as a nativity
scene is relevant only to the
celebration of Christmas, the
nine-candle menorah, donated by
a local Lubavitcher, is a religious
symbol associated only with the
celebration of Chanukah.
Not surprisingly, Lubavitch
movement spokesman Krinsky
presented a different interpreta-
tion. He said the "Establishment
Clause means. that the govern-
ment cannot establish a specific
religion and recognize a specific
religion as a state religion, but at
the same time freedom of religion
does not mean the freedom from
religion, which means that
everyone can practice their
religion freely."
As for the menorah, Krinsky
said that it symbolized Chanukah,
a holiday with "a universal
message of freedom .. It's not
indigenous only to Judaism to
have the victory of right over
might. To say that it is solely
religious and has no secular
relevance at all is foolish."
Allegheny County Assistant
Solicitor David McTiernan and

George Specter defended the
creche and menorah, respectively,
with the Lynch case. Specter add-

For Archbishop, Funny Thing Happened On Way To Israel
The controversy surroun-

misadventures on his visit to

Here was a Cardinal setting out

largest concentration of Jews in

the invitation of the then-Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, an invita-

Pope John Paul II say on his visit
to Morocco last year:
"The Moslems are convinced
that Jerusalem should have a
special status as a central point,
the capital, of the three
monotheistic religions. This is also
the view of the Holy See. The pro-
blem of Jerusalem should be
HIS REFERENCE to "special
status" points to the fact that the
Vatican continues to hold that the
now long-outmoded and defunct
UN Resolution 303 (TV) on the In-
ternationalization of Jerusalem
remains in force. Grounded on
November 29, 1947, the Partition
Resolution was rejected by all the
Arabs who then launched die 1948
war. The Resolution "decided"
that "the City of Jerusalem shall
be established as a corpus
separatum under a special inter-
national regime and administered
by the UN ..." The Arabs were
defeated in the 1948 war, and we
would have thought the Resolu-
tion a dead issue.
Nothing in the relations bet-
ween the Popes and the Jews in
past centuries has ever happened
by accident. It is therefore not
farfetched to see in the latest
Comedy of Errors staged by the
Vatican the opening of a new cam-
paign to wrest control of
Jerusalem from the hands of
Israel. Many fed that it would
have been far better if the Israel
Government revoked the invita-
tion to Cardinal O'Connor than to
allow itself to be treated as the
beggar at the Temple Gate.
John Cardinal O'Connor may
have been an innocent victim of
the manipulations of Rome, but
there is no reason why Israel
should suffer for it. Is Vatican II
to be followed now by a Jerusalem
II campaign in which the Vatican
will lead the forces of darkness at
the United Nations in a new at-
tempt to raise the Carcass of the
corpus separatum from the open
grave? All that is needed is for the
Vatican Observer at the UN to ask
for the item to be inscribed on the
agenda of the next General
WE HOPE NOT. The leaders of
Israel and of the Jewish communi-

start. The Gruess mich nicht

Andrei Sakharov
A Hero to Jewry Both in the Soviet Union and the Western World
Andrei Sakharov, the
Soviet Human Rights cham-

ewry and to the Soviet
Jewish emigration move-
ment. He has not only
spoken out for the right to
emigrate to Israel but has
stoutly defended the Jewish
State and Zionism at a time
when both are reviled by his
own country.

Soviet support for the Arabs had
given Moscow a direct respon-
sibility for the outbreak of the Six-
Day War. Sakharov had described
Russia's Arab allies as in no way
socialist, and said Israel had
undertaken a preventive war.
In the Leningrad and Riga trial
of Jewish activists, Sakharov
assumed a prominent, if not cen-
tral, role in the struggle for fun-
damental freedoms, adds Korey.
On December 24, 1970, a Len-

verdicts, including two death
sentences for an attempted plane

The Vatican's position not to
recognize Jerusalem as Israel's
capital put conside-able strain on
the Cardinal's visit. He would not
meet with Israeli leaders in of-
ficial capacity at their offices here.
He stressed repeatedly that his

President Chaim Herzog met

ed a "fascinating" visit
"within the guidelines set
down by the Vatican."

not changed my mind about

right from the beginning that
I could not pay an official visit
on any senior official of the
government in their offices,"
"I was invited this i
to pay an unofficial, it

would be willing to do if so in-
vited." O'Connor ftdded.

PERES, for his part, implied
that the nature of his meeting
with O'Connor was in the eyes of
the beholder. "Jerusalem is the
capital of Israel, and it makes no
difference if anybody recognizes
that fact or not," he said. "And if
someone comes to me and says I
am comng to you as a private in-
dividual so what? Does that
make me a private individual?"
He said his hour-long talk with
O'Connor covered a wide range of
issues, including the situation in
the Middle East.
The Cardinal, who wore plain
clerical garb on his visit to Peres,
as he did when he called on Her-
zog the previous evening, said, "I
was primarily returning a very
friendly, courteous visit which the
Foreign Minister, when he was
Prime Minister, made on me when
he was in New York ... I say
publicly that I consider Mr.
Shimon Peres a friend and am just
delighted that we had this oppor-
tunity. I had hoped, from the
beginning, that I would be able to
return that call, as he was the one
who invited me to Israel."
O'CONNOR was referring to
Peres' visit to him at his residence
in New York last October, when
the invitation to come to Israel
was extended.
Following their breakfast
meeting, O'Connor went to the
Gaza Strip where he toured chur-
ches and the offices of refugee
relief groups supported by an
organization he beads in New
York. He also visited recent im-
migrants from Ethiopia living in
villages in the Negev. The prelate
flew to Rome Monday night.
Earlier, he summed up his visit for
"I think I have a much clearer
understanding for my own per-
sonal reflections of the problems
that have impinged upon the
potential of formal diplomatic
relations between the Holy See
and Israel," he said.
Of his impressions of Israel,
O'Connor observed that he had
"met a number of Israeli people, a
number of officials of the govern-
ment, very informally. I have been
deeply impressed by what seems
to be their sincerity. I hope I have
conveyed a very clear impression
of affection and respect, and in-
deed, love for the Jewish people
and for Israel."
Everyone Was Wrong
O'Connor's Visit Aroused Ire,
But He Got Vatican's Way
It appeared almost certain
last week that there would
be no meetings between top
Israeli leadership and New
York Roman Catholic Ar-
chbishop John Cardinal
O'Connor. The Vatican has
prohibited O'Connor from
meeting with Israeli govern-
ment leaders in Jerusalem.
But of course everyone
was wrong.
O'Connor said before arriving
in Amman, Jordan, that he had
scheduled meetings with Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog, Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres,
as well as with Jerusalem Mayor
Teddy Kollek.
HE THEN asked to meet them
outside their offices, to avoid any
semblance of official contacts.
O'Connor said he changed his
schedule after orders from the
Vatican to cancel the meetings.
However, O'Connor said his of-
ficial meeting with Kollek would
proceed as planned. But Herzog,
Shamir and Peres said they would
not meet O'Connor outside of
their offices in Jerusalem.
O'Connor acknowledged that he
had made a mistake in originally
scheduling the meetings without
Vatican approval and said his
mistake had embarrassed some
Israeli officials.
Many Jewish leaders in New
York were critical of O'Connor's
change of plans and noted that he
applied a "double standard" by
meeting officially with King Hus-
sein of Jordan but not with Israeli
leaders. The criticism of the Ar-
chbishop, which began over the
weekend, continued Monday.

nor to meet with Israeli officials.
The Vatican's action "signals a
crucial setback in the process of
advancing understanding" bet-
ween the two religions, Pollack
Henry Siegman, executive
director of the American Jewish
Congress, said, "The Vatican's
refusal to allow Cardinal O'Con-
nor to visit Israeli government
leaders has once again called at-

abrasive manner, to the Vatican's
double standard when it comes to

"Apparently, the Vatican had
no problem with Cardinal O'Con-
nor's official visits with Jordanian
government officials."
Vatican's persistent refusal to
hold such meetings has therefore
little to do with its views regar-
ding the status of Jerusalem and
everything to do with a diplomacy
that is tilted to the Arab world."
About 20 supporters of the
Jewish Defense Group (JDG) stag-
ed a demonstration here outside
St. Patrick's Cathedral, where
O'Connor has his pulpit, to protest
O'Connor's cancellation of the
meetings. Yaakov Lloyd of the
JDG called the Vatican an enemy
of the State of Israel and of the
But O'Connor received support
from Mayor Edward Koch who
called on Israeli officials to
welcome O'Connor and said the
Archbishop was a good friend of
Israel and the Jewish people.
At the root of the controversy is
the Vatican's refusal to recognize
Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
and the absence of full diplomatic
relationship with Israel began
after the Archbishop toured
Lebanon in June and then called
for a homeland for the Palestinian
people. Peres, who was Prime
Minister at the time, invited
O'Connor during an October
meeting in New York to visit the
country and learn the Israeli side
of the conflict.
But O'Connor's visit was com-
plicated by the Vatican's relations
with Israel. Formally, the Vatican
has never had full diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel but recognizes its
right to exist.
Israeli officials have paid formal
visits to the Vatican and only last
year Peres met Pope John Paul II
in Rome.

Another Postponement
Demjanjuk's Attorney Wants Time
TEL AVIV (JTA) The three-judge
panel trying John Demjanjuk has granted
the suspected Nazi war criminal a one-
month postponement at the request of his
American attorney, Mark O'Connor, to
allow him additional time to study pro-
secution documents.
The trial of the Ukrainian-born former
resident of Cleveland, Ohio, opened for-
mally in a Jerusalem District Court on
Nov. 26 but was adjourned until Jan. 19
after a 40-minute preliminary hearing. It
is now scheduled to resume Feb. 15.
THE ACCUSED was represented at
the postponement hearing by an Israeli
lawyer, Yoram Schechtel, who agreed to
assist O'Connor in preparing the defense.
Schechtel will not take an active part in
the trial but will be available for consulta-
tion by O'Connor on points of Israeli law.
The judges were critical of the
American lawyer for what they saw as un-
due delay in preparing; his case. O'Connor
had asked for several postponements on
grounds that he had been unable to find
an Israeli colleague willing to participate
in Demjanjuk's defense. The court noted
that Schechtel's presence indicated that
he has solved that problem.
Demjanjuk, the first suspected war
criminal ever extradited to Israel for trial,
has been charged with war crimes, crimes
against humanity and crimes against
persecuted people.
HE IS alleged to be the Treblinka death
camp guard known by inmates as "Ivan
the Terrible" for his brutality, and direct-
ly responsible for the deaths of tens of
thousands of Jews and others. "Ivan"
allegedly operated the gas chambers.
Demjanjuk's defense hinges on
mistaken identity. The panel hearing the
case consists of Supreme Court Justice
Dov Levin and District Court judges Dalia
Lerner and Zvi Tal.

Probe Into Shamir's Role At End
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has
been absolved of any wrong-
doing in the 1984 killing of
two captured Arab bus hi-
jackers by Israeli agents and
the subsequent cover-up of
what came to be known as
the Shin Bet affair.
But the findings of the special
committee last week set up by the
Justice Ministry to investigate the
episode touched off a vituperative
quarrel between Labor and Likud
only hours after the 65-page docu-
ment was published at Shamir's
request last week.
LIKUD spokesmen hailed the
report and demanded that
Laborites apologize to the Prime
Minister for their "blood libel"
that he was in any way involved.
Critics of the report claimed it

mittee of the Jewish Federation of
Broome County protested the
plight of Jews in the Soviet Union

Hartford Whalers and Soviet

echelons which bore ultimate
responsibility for the activities of
Shin Bet, Israel's internal secret
The special committee, a panel
of lawyers headed by Attorney
General Yosef Harish, found that
Shamir, who was Premier at the
time of the incident, did not order
the killings and was not im-
plicated in attempts to cover them
up. Their report castigated the
then Shin Bet chief, Avraham
Shalom, who claimed he acted on
orders from a higher authority.
It was Shalom's testimony
before a government-appointed
committee that cast a shadow on
Shamir's role, since the Prime
Minister was the highest political
figure and bore ultimate respon-
sibility for the Shin Bet. The com-
mittee was chaired by Gen. (Res.)
Meir Zorea.
ZOREA WAS sharply critical of
the panel's report. Calling the in-
cident one of the biggest scandals
in Israel's history, he said on an
Israel Radio interview that while
the findings were legally in order,
the panel failed to place any blame
on the political establishment for
its failure to act after it became
apparent that a wrong had been
"Everyone was happy, though
something disgusting had been
done," Zorea said. He admitted
his committee had been misled by
Shalom's testimony "and in the
end nobody was found guilty or
punished because of the Presiden-
tial pardon."
Zorea was referring to the par-
dons granted by President Chaim
Herzog to Shalom and several of
his associates though none was
ever charged with an offense. He
criticized Labor Party leader
Shimon Peres, who became
Premier shortly after the incident,
for going along with the Presiden-
tial pardon and for not forcing
Shalom to resign. Shalom did
resign, but only after the scandal
broke earlier this year.
LABOR PARTY spokesmen,
including Abba Eban, Chairman
of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee, also
criticized the panel, not for its fin-
dings but for overlooking political
responsibility. Likud, however,
lauded Shamir for his "fortitude"
and "resolute stand" in the face of
"blood libels" and "calumny" by
the Labor Party.
Laborites promptly noted that it
was Likud which stubbornly op-
posed any investigation into the
affair by the police, legal
authorities or a government com-
mission when it first surfaced.

Invitation To Visit Israel
ATHENS (JTA) The Speaker of the Greek Parlia-
ment, Yiannis Alevras, has accepted an invitation to visit
Israel extended by his counterpart, Knesset Speaker
Shlomo Hillel. He will make the visit in May, 1987 as the
head of a Greek Parliamentary delegation.
THE INVITATION was conveyed to Alevras by
Moshe Gilboa, Israel's diplomatic representative here.
Although Gilboa holds the rank of Ambassador, Greece and
Israel do not have diplomatic ties on the Ambassadorial
level and their relations until recently have been cool.
The fact that Alevras accepted the invitation without
hesitation and immediately set a date was considered
significant by diplomatic observers here. The Speaker is
one of the two closest associates and confidants of Prime
Minister Andreas Papandreou and apparently had Papan-
dreou's blessings to make the trip.
THE STATE-OWNED RADIO and television
highlighted it in their newscasts, something not done when
Israeli and Greek officials exchanged visits in the past. Ac-
cording to Gilboa, Alevras' forthcoming trip to Israel will
be of special importance to relations between the two coun-
tries. He noted it will be the first time a Greek Parliamen-
tary delegation has visited the Jewish State.

For Legalized Prostitution in Israel
TEL AVI (JTA) Labor MK Ora
Namir appealed Tuesday for the legaliza-
tion of prostitution in Israel as a means to
control the spread of AIDS and other
diseases and out of concern for the health
and welfare of prostitutes.
Namir, who chairs the Knesset's Labor
and Social Welfare Committee, was inter-
viewed on "New Evening," a program
sponsored jointly by Educational Televi-
sion and the Israel Defense Force Radio.
She quoted rabbinical authorities on the
recognition of prostitution.
NAMIR INDICATED her primary con-
cern was over AIDS, Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome, which affects
primarily homosexual and bi-sexual
males. She noted it has been determined
that the virus can be transmitted by
females to males, though women do not
suffer from the invariably fatal ailment to
the same extent as men.
Recent investigations by Israeli doctors
and social workers indicated, however,
that the incidence of virus is higher
among women than men and that 30 per-
cent of prostitutes in Israel carry the
virus. Most carriers do not come down
with the disease.
Namir said she spoke to prostitutes
"who, after all, are human beings and
deserve protection and rights,' and
almost all of them favor licensed premises
from where they could provide their ser-
vices in a sheltered, controlled environ-
ment. As long as there are men willing to
pay for those services, there will be pro-
stitutes, she observed.
NAMIR recalled that a Cabinet-
appointed committee several years ago
recommended legalizing prostitution as a
mean of controlling it. "But as with many
other committee recommendations, the
government never had the courage to im-
plement the committee's findings," she
Begin's Son Renews Attacks
On Dad's Defense Minister
jamin Begin, son of former
Premier Menachem Begin, has
renewed his attacks on Ariel
Sharon, who was his father's
Defense Minister before and dur-
ing the Lebanon war.
An interview in the Jerusaelm
weekly Kol Ha'ir quoted the
younger Begin as describing
Sharon as "a non-positive
development which will jeopardize
the ability of Herut to recruit
public support." Sharon, who is
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry in the present unity coali-
tion government, said he would
not react to Begin's comments.
Begin denied later that he in-
tended to attack Sharon personal-
ly. He said he had "no personal
problem" with the outspoken
Herut hardliner. But the inter-
view made it clear that the
younger Begin is determined to
diminish Sharon's role in Herut,
the party his father founded and
led for more than 30 years.
Begin, whose political views are
considered less hawkish than
those of the former Premier, is
making a major effort to
strengthen his own position in
Herut. He regularly visits the
party's branches throughout the
country. So far he has had little
success. He failed to win support
for his positions at the recent
Herut convention.
But that defeat has not deter-
red him from political activity,
and he continues to make his voice
heard though he normally shies
away from public appearances.

Cancer Patients At Heart of Western Protest To Move Soviets
Now that Rimma Brawe
has left the Soviet Union,
and is in the United States,
the matter of other known
Soviet refusenik cancer pa-
tients remains very much in
the hearts and minds of
their kin, and supporters, in
the West.
In fact, the release of Brawe
last month and of Tatiana
Bogomolny in October gives in-
creased hope to the cause of ob-
taining the freedom of other ailing
refuseniks whose hope rests in
some experimental medical
techniques available in a few
selected hospitals in the West,
techniques that have the possibili-
ty of saving lives.
Hart (D., Colo.) met in Moscow
with top Soviet officials, including
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
and Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze, and raised the
issue of about 12 people who want
to emigrate, among them cancer
patients with families in the West.
High on the list is Inna Meiman of
Moscow whose husband's
daughter, Olga Plum, lives in
Boulder, Colo.
Hart spoke specifically about
Meiman, 54, who suffers from a
recurrent tumor on her neck for
which she has had four operations.
Doctors in Moscow have told her
there is little more they can do for
her, in spite of the appearance of a
fifth tumor on her neck.
Before he left Moscow on the
flight to Vienna with Rimma
Brawe. Hart was told by Shevar-
nadze that the Soviets would
allow Inna Meiman to leave, but
that her husband, Naum, 75,
would not be permitted to accom-
pany her. Shevardnadze reported-
ly told Hart that the people on his
list who do not require security
clearances are free to leave.
NAUM MEIMAN, a refusenik
since 1975, has had his visa re-
quest turned down on grounds or
knowing "state secrets." He is
also categorized as a dissident by
dint of his membership in the now
disbanded Moscow Helsinki
monitoring group.
The group included Yelena Bon-
ner, Alexander Ginsburg, Yuri
Orlov, Anatoly Sharansky, and
Anatoly Marchenko, who was
reported to have died Dec. 8 in
Chistopol Prison.
Inna Meiman is currently taking
a position that she will not leave
without her husband, Dr. Gerald
Batist, a research oncologist in
Montreal who has worked
ceaselessly since April on behalf
of the cancer patients, has said
that it is extremely important that
the couple remain together in the
face of Inna Meiman's critical
medical situation.
He said that doctors strongly
believe that "the psychological
status is extremely critical" in the
treatment of a cancer patient.
"Separation from her husband,"
said Batist, "could compromise
any benefit from medical

Charny said. But Benjamin was,
ironically, fired from that job as
soon as school authorises learned
he was a refusenik.
IN 1980, Benjamin suffered a
massive heart attack. He was in
and out of hospitals, his brother
said. In 1983, he was hospitalized
for four straight months. After-
wards, he was classified as an in-

'Glasnost9: An Exercise In Bitter Ironies
president of the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews,
Pamela B. Cohen, has
issued a strong denunciation
of the Soviet announcement
last week that 55 emigres
have returned to Moscow.
According to Cohen, "It is
ironic that the Soviets and the
western media chose to place such
a distorted emphasis upon the 55
returnees, while 280,000 Soviet
Jews who left the USSR in the
past 16 years continue to enjoy
life in the west. Moreover, it is
disturbing that the Soviet Union
continues to deny freedom of
movement to its own citizens."
nearly 400,000 Soviet Jews have
asked permission to leave the
USSR, and have become caught
up in a bureaucratic Soviet game
of delay, red tape, and doubletalk.
"Almost 30,000 Soviet Jews
have been repeatedly denied per-
mission to emigrate from the
USSR. Some have waited more
than a decade in vain. It is utterly
absurd that the Soviets can talk
proudly of those few citizens who

LEON, who lives in Needham,
Mass., and is a PhD candidate at
MIT in engineering, has been try-
ing to publicize his brother's
plight since June 12, when a group
of cancer patient refuseniks put
together their own press con-
ference in Moscow. The patients
Charny, Bogomolny and
Meiman did this as an act of
desperation, said Leon.
In June, following the press con-
ference, which was attended by
Western journalists, Batist in
Montreal started the Interna-
tional Cancer Patients Solidarity
Committee. Batist had been in
Moscow in the spring visiting
Brawe and Bogomolny.
SINCE THAT initial con-
ference, these people have held
eight press conferences, at least
one per month, in the U.S.,
Canada, and in Vienna on the
opening day of the Helsinki Ac-
cord follow-up talks.
AT THESE conferences, promi-
nent legislators, Ambassadors
and over 1,000 physicians have
thrown their support behind the
cancer patients in what Batist
described as a "humanitarian
movement not anti-Soviet."
These supporters "are joining a
winning team," Batist said.
Leon Charny, speaking on the
plight of the refusenik cancer pa-
tients, said. "This should not be
repeated. I don't think that in a
civilized world that cancer pa-
tients should spend their remain-
ing lives' energy trying to get
together with their families."

Hero to Jews
Continned from Page 5
and non-Jews who want to
In October 1973, Sakharov
again rallied to the side of embat-
tled Israel with an interview to a
Lebanese correspondent in which
he said that the issue at stake was
Israel's right to life and its very
existence, while the Arabs were
motivated by prestige and na-
tionalistic prejudices.
To end the conflict, he urged
direct negotiations and Arab
recognition of Israel's right to ex-
istence within borders ensuring
its military security, its fun-
damental economic interests and
prospective emigration there.
IN NOVEMBER, 1975, when a
majority of the United Nations
General Assembly defined
Zionism as a form of racism and
racial discrimination, he
courageously denounced its deci-
sion as an abomination.
From time to time in the
mid-1970's Anatoly Sharansky
had acted as Sakharov's secretary
and translator. Following the ar-
rest of the young computer
specialist on espionage charges,
Sakharov spoke out for him and
vouched for his innocence.
As Sharansky's trial unfolded in
mid-July, 1978, Sakharov joined a
crowd of 150 protesters outside
the courtroom and, as the defen-
dant was finally rushed away to
prison without being given a last
meeting with his mother,
Sakharov shouted at the police.

Arab Daily Editor Haniya
Deported After Dropping Appeal
Haniya, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily A-Shaab,
was deported last week after
dropping his appeal to the
Supreme Court against the expul-
sion order.
Haniya was put aboard a
Swissair flight to Zurich at Ben-
Gurion Airport and is believed en
route to Algeria. He surprised his
supporters and accusers alike
when he dropped his appeal,
charging that he was "a victim of
political revenge."
HE SAID he decided not to
fight deportation after the high
court ruled that virtually all of the
evidence compiled against him
was classified information that
could not be made available to his
attorneys. This meant in effect
that Haniya could not defend
himself because he did not know
what to defend against.
In a statement to his lawyers, he
said: "I am a victim of political
revenge for my struggle as a
political person, as a journalist
and as a writer, to achieve the
legitimate rights of my people."
The Israeli authorities who
brought charges against Haniya
claimed he was a senior political
activist of El Fatah, the military
wing of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, and a conduit for
PLO funds and orders. He denied
the charges. The authorities con-
ceded there was no evidence to
link Haniya to terrorist acts.
Defense Ministry Closes Account
Used To Transfer Weapons Funds
Defense Ministry recently closed a
Swiss bank account used to
transfer money from weapons
purchased by Iran to the
Americans via Israel, according to
Israeli press reports.
Press reports in the past month
uncovered that part of the money
from the Swiss account into which
the Israelis deposited the
payments was diverted to aid the
Nicaraguan rebels, or Contras.
But the Israeli government has
vehemently denied any knowledge
of the diverted funds.
A Defense Ministry investiga-
tion into all the financial accounts
connected to the arms deal affair
found that Israeli arms dealers
Yaacov Nimrodi and Al Schwim-
mer delivered some $3 million to
Israel from the sale of the first
TOW missiles in September, 1985.
The Israelis, at the request of
American officials, then deposited
half the money in a Swiss account
whose number was provided by
the Americans. The rest of the
money went to Iranian arms
dealer and middleman Manucher
Ghorbanifar, also at the
Americans' request. About
$700,000 to $800,000 went to the
Israeli government to compensate
for shipping expenses, according
to the report in Haaretz.
The Defense Ministry has ac-
counted for all the funds transfer-
red to it, the report said. But the
Defense Ministry's investigation
did not account for money
transferred to middlemen and
arms dealers which did not reach
Israel, according to the report.

Secret Budget Supplement

According to Modavthe Cabinet
could have created a welcome
precedent. During the past 10
years, he noted, the government
has always been forced to tack on
a supplementary budget. This
year it could have been avoided,
but "we have returned to our bad
old ways," he said.
Modai said the secret vote was
taken at the Cabinet meeting
devoted to the new economic plan
last Monday evening. He said he
was not present because Premier
Yitzhak Shamir had assured when
he left the session that no further
votes were scheduled.

FIRST CHANUKAH IN 63 YEARS: David Goldfarb, in
wheelchair, arrives in New York last week to celebrate his first
Chanukah in 63 years. Goldfarb, a Jewish cancer patient who
was allowed to leave the Soviet Union in October, is helped by his
son, Alex Goldfarb (left), and Claire Friedman, a member of the
New York synagogue where he attended the celebration.

Menorah Now At Center

The AJCongress side had better
luck in Des Moines, Iowa, where
Federal District Judge Harold
Vietor turned down a request for
a court order sought by Lubavitch
that would have allowed a
menorah to be placed on the
grounds of the State Capitol. The
State Attorney General had
issued an informal opinion that
the display would be unconstitu-
tional, Stern said.
In Eighth Circuit Federal
Court, Lubavitch lost an appeal of
Vietor's decision. Krinsky said
Des Moines Lubavitchers are con-
sidering alternatives, such as
displaying the menorah in other
sites or erecting it on State
Capitol grounds for several hours
each non-Sabbath night of
Chanukah, and then dismantling
ALL OF THIS litigation during
the Christmas season has drawn
criticism from some ideological
allies of AJCongress, who worry
about fostering societal ill will.
Stern said he understood that
argument, and that it had been
the "prevailing wisdom for years"
to avoid the lawsuits during this
But he said that after
Christmas, the plaintiffs run the
risk of having their case called ir-
relevant. "Next year, who knows
what will happen?" he asked, "the
only sure time to litigate is when
the creche or the menorah is up."
And he said litigation is the only
way to protest these displays.
Iran Raps 'Historic Mistake'
In Giving Nobel to Wiesel
OSLO (JTA) The Embassy of the Islamic Republic
of Iran in Norway released a statement condemning the
Nobel Peace Committee for its "historic mistake" in awar-
ding its prize to Elie Wiesel, the World Jewish Congress
reported here.
THE EMBASSY released "an official statement"
which said: "The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran,
while expressing 'deep regret,' condemns this historic
mistake of the Norwegian Nobel Peace Committee and
hereby demands to know how a man who supports the
racist regime which has usurped and occupied Palestine can
be the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize? '
The statement added: "This selection by the
Norwegian Nobel Peace Committee once again revives the
painful memory of a few years ago of the award of the
Nobel Peace Prize to Sadat and the criminal Begin." Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Premier Menachem Begin
of Israel were co-winners of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1978.
Fails To Isolate, Defame Israel
(JTA) Efforts to isolate
and defame Israel in this
year's General Assembly
were not successful. This
was indicated by the fact
that there was only a slight
increase about five per-
cent in support for anti-
Israel resolutions.
According to a survey by the
Israel Mission to the UN, while 54
percent of the 153-member
Assembly supported anti-Israel
resolutions in 1985, such resolu-
tions this year garnered 59
Eyal Arad, Israel's UN
spokesman pointed out however
that many of the resolutions in
this year's Assembly were
"watered-down" versions of the
same resolutions of 1985 and that
some of these resolutions did not
mention Israel by name.
A CASE in point, Arad said,
was the resolution calling for con-
vening of an "international con-
ference" to solve the Middle East
crisis. "Many countries which last
year either abstained or voted
against the "international con-
ference" voted in favor of it this
year," Arad observed. "The
watered-down version of the
resolution this year, which did not
even mention Israel by name,
essentially neutralized the anti-
Israel bias which was contained in
last year's version. Consequently,
many countries voted in favor of
The vote this year on convening
an international peace conference
was 123-3 with 19 abstentions.
Last year's vote was 107-8 with 19
Another reason for the slight in-
crease in support for anti-Israel
resolutions, according to Arad,
was that many of the countries
which did not participate in last
year's votings and were
therefore considered as suppor-
ting Israel were successfully
mobilized to vote against Israel
this year.
Arad noted that there were 24
anti-Israel resolutions in the just-
concluded General Assembly,
about the same as last year. The
resolutions attacked Israel on a
range of issues, for its alleged ties
to South Africa and its alleged
nuclear capabilities to the issues
of Palestinian refugees, the oc-
cupied territories, the Mideast
conflict and human rights.
THE SURVEY showed that
Western block countries con-
tinued to record the highest level
of support of Israel by casting
negative votes on anti-Israel
resolutions. They voted against 71
percent of the resolutions this
year compared with 78 percent
the previous year.
There was a decline of one per-
cent from 58 in 1985 to 57 in 1986
in the voting against anti-Israel
resolutions by Central American
countries and a decline from 81
percent in 1985 to 27 percent in
1986 by South American
The survey pointed out that the
United States continued to record
the highest level of support of
Israel by an individual country
supporting the Jewish State by 96
percent of the votes. The lowest
level of support of Israel at 4 per-
cent, was shared by Sri Lanka,
Ghana, Botswana, and Guinea.
Describing the 41st General
Assembly as "boring" and
"uneventful," diplomats and
observers here noted that the
Arab-Israeli conflict was put on
the back burners this year. One
reason, they said, was that the
financial crisis of the UN over-
shadowed preoccupation with
Israel. Another reason, they ex-
plained, was that the Arabs
themselves realized that their ex-
treme anti-Israel rhetoric and
resolutions only cost them support
and sympathy.
Attacks New Elite
Weizman Threatens To Pull Out Party
Ezer Weizman is threaten-
ing to pull his Yahad Party
out of its alignment with the
Labor Party in the unity
coalition, reportedly
because he is frustrated
over the lack of a mean-
ingful role in the

ly with Vice Premier and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres, the Labor
Party leader, to try to iron out
their differences. Yahad has three

ed in the Foreign Ministry* but he
complains he has no real input in
policymaking. During Peres'
tenure as Premier, before the
rotation of power last October,
Weizman was attached to the
Prime Minister's Office and was
active in Arab affairs and as a
liaison to Egypt.
But since Peres changed jobs
with Yitzhak Shamir, Weizman
claims there has been a slug-
gishness over peace initiatives on
Peres' part. He is also 'disen-
chanted by the footdragging with
repsect to appointments of some
of his colleagues to key posts, such
as Mordechai Hod to be chairman
of Israel Aviation Industries.
Weizman attacked the unity
coalition government last Thurs-
day for what he claimed was a lack
of achievement in the field of
foreign policy and the pursuit of
peace. He told a meeting of the
Contractors Association that he
was "in a fighting mood" and
would be willing to negotiate with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization if the PLO accepted
the key United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 388.
"IF ISRAEL sits back and
waits for a telephone call (from
the Arab states) it will get an ar-
tillery shell," Weizman said. "The
time has come for us to initiate the
telephone calls to the Arabs."
The contractors, mostly rightw-
ingers or members of Likud, at-
tacked Weizman for leaving Likud
and entering into a "covenant"
with Peres. Weizman, a former
Air Force commander, entered
politics through Likud when he
was Menachem Begin's campaign
manager in the 1977 elections. He
served as Defense Minister in
Begin's first government.
Answering his critics, Weizman
admitted he had changed his
politics. "Anybody who doesn't
change his mind in view of chang-
ing circumstances is simply a
nobody," he said. He charged that
there are "only four Ministers in
the government," Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir, Peres, Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin and
Finance Minister Moshe Nissim.
According to Weizman, they
run the show. "The other Cabinet
Ministers are a Parliament, and
the Knesset as a whole has
become a House of Lords," he

Reform Judaism Is 'Destroying' Israel
Outgoing Interior Minister
Yitzhak Peretz, who formal-
ly resigned Sunday, has ac-
cused Reform Judaism of
"destroying Israel" and
maintained that the recogni-
tion of Reform conversions
was the "greatest tragedy
which has befallen the peo-
ple of Israel.
Peretz, who heads the ultra-
Orthodox Shas Party, offered
those opinions in a "farewell in-
terview" on Israel Radio Monday.
He resigned rather than comply
with a Supreme Court order to
register as a Jew Shoshana Miller,
an American immigrant con-
verted to Judaism by a Reform
rabbi in the U.S. four years ago.
Reform communities in Israel) are
destroying Israel. They are bring-
ing the Jewish people to destruc-
tion, to assimilation. Why do the
government heads not wake up?
Where are they?" asked Peretz
who is an Orthodox rabbi.
He accused the government of
"dealing with trivialities in the
face of the greatest danger ever
facing Israel even more serious
than Israel's defense problems, or
the economic situation or the tax
reform question."
According to Peretz, "The day
will come when this government
will stand before tine historic
judgement of the people of Israel.
The day will come when this
government will have to answer
because it is about to give official
approval for the entrance of
Reform organizations into

been named for Peretz. The In-

by a member of an Orthodox par-
ty, will be placed temporarily in

In Cellar
Egyptian Jew Who Hid For
22 Years Passes Away
TEL AVTV (JTA) Cesar Yaacov Douek, an Egyp-
tian Jew who hid in a cellar for 22 years, died in Cairo Sun-
day at the age of 82, Israel Radio reported.
DOUEK WENT INTO hiding in 1957 when then Egyp-
tian President Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered Jews expelled
from Egypt in the aftermath of the Sinai campaign. He con-
cealed himself in the cellar of his sister's house. She had
married an Egyptian attorney and converted to the
Moslem faith.
Douek emerged from hiding when the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty was signed in 1979. But he rarely left the
house after that because of advanced age.

fect, recognizes Reform conver-
sion as valid in Israel.
Miller herself is presently in the
U.S. caring for her widowed
father who is seriously ill. She said
on an Israel Radio telephone in-
terview Sunday that she plans to
return to Israel as soon as she can.
She expressed regret over the
controversy aroused by her case.
"I AM NOT a political animal.
When I converted to Judaism I
believed I was making an entirely
personnal commitment. I sudden-
ly found myself in the center of a
public controversy," she said.
Commenting on Pereti's
resignation, Miller observed that
it "was proof that all the streams
of Judaism have to be treated
Miller indicated that she could
have ended the controversy by
agreeing to Rabbi Klein's sugges-
tion that she submit to Orthodox
conversion rites in Israel. She said
her conversion experience was a
"momentous event in my life and
I see no reason to do it again."
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The Pope visited a Rome
synagogue, greeted a Jewish
delegation from America, granted
permission to Cardinal O'Connor
to speak to King Hussein but
not to Israel's Prime Minister
even as a gesture of goodwill.
Consider the multi-billions in
profit made in business with
Arabs by corporations who con-
tribute to the papacy and pro-
bably influence Mideast policy at
the State Department.

friend of U.S. Israel is a proven
reliable ally.

Holy Land.

Soviet Jews who want to go," said
According to Cohen, "Dr. An-
drei Sakharov's return to Moscow
has been an unqualified public
relations coup for Soviet
Secretary Gorbachev, represen-
ting the high point of a carefully
crafted strategy designed to
deflect the American public's
focus from the reality of the
Soviets' dismal human rights
"Despite the worldwide praise
that has been heaped upon Gor-
bachev, releasing Sakharov from
a seven-year exile says very little
about human rights in the Soviet
Union. Instead, it is a testament
to the intense pressure applied to
the Soviets from foreign and
domestic sources urging
Sakharov's release."
Sakharov continues to urge im-
provement in the Soviet treat-
ment of dissidents, he has become,
perhaps unwittingly, a tool in the
Soviet campaign of human rights
public relations. He is the central
focus of a Soviet ploy designed to
convince many in the West that
there really is a spirit of Glasnost
or openness in Soviet society.
"Sadly, there are other Soviet
citizens caught up in Gorbachev's
scenario. Three months ago, the
Soviets inexplicably released from
prison poet Irina Ratuahinskaya,
and allowed her to travel to the
West for medical treatment Last
month, Gorbachev played the role
of the avuncular teddybear, giving
a warm reception to Colorado
Sen. Gary Hart, and allowing the
senator to leave Moscow in the
company of a Soviet Jewish
refusemks suffering from cancer.
After month > of delay, the Soviets
finally allowed her to go to the
West for medical treatment
"If all of this seems to be part of
a new spirit of an open Soviet
society, it could be because many
in the West are not separating
Soviet human rights rhetoric from
the reality of a dismal human
rights performance."
Cohen's statement concludes:
"The fact is that thousands of
Soviet dissidents, including hun-
dreds of Soviet Jews, are im-
prisoned, beaten, and tortured in
Soviet Siberian Gulags. The truth
is that hundreds of thousands of
Soviet citizens are denied permis-
sion to leave the USSR

The attempted changes of

delicate relations between
Jerusalem and the Archbishop,
who first prompted an official in-
vitation to visit Israel after mak-
ing statements last summer in the
press sympathetic to Palestinian
"Somehow, a homeland has to
be provided for the Palestinian
peoples," O'Connor told a New
York Tunes, reporter upon his ar-
rival in Rome in June. "But from a
moral perspective, those people
have to be given a homeland.
Otherwise everything spills over
into every area and that has to
result in a very volatile situation.
So I think that's imperative."
IN EFFORTS to show O'Con-
nor the problem from an Israeli
perspective, Peres, who was then
Prime Minister, extended a per-
sonal invitation to O'Connor when
the two met in New York in
Now, some Israeli and
American Jewish officials say, it

Meanwhile, other officials here
and in Israel have been careful not
to criticize O'Connor, saying the
changes were uirected by the
Vatican in Rome.
Rabbi Ronald Sobel of Temple
Emanu-El, a friend of O'Connor's,
said that although O'Connor
would not be going to Israel as an
official envoy of the Vatican,
there was much hope of improving
relations between Israel and the
Holy See.
"These latest events lead one to
sadly conclude that perhaps it
would have been better had the
trip not been planned at all at this
time," Sobel said.
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, agreed
that O'Connor would have been
better off to not have scheduled
his visit under these
"The Vatican has embarrassed
John Cardinal O'Connor and itself
more than it embarrasses Israel.
The Vatican's long-expressed and
genuine concern with theological
anti-Semitism is welcome. But its
concern is compromised by this
kind of cynical, political
gamesmanship," Perlmutter said.
RABBI Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Cngregations,
said it was disappointing that
O'Connor would snub Israeli
leaders immediately following an
official reception by Jordanian's
King Hussein.
Seymour Reich, president of

"It is a simple question of equal
treatment. If the Vatican permits

Morris Abram, chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations,
"We regard Cardinal O'Connor
as a friend, but Israel is right to
expect that it be dealt with as any
sovereign state should be. A
prince of the church cannot make
a private visit to Israel when he
makes an official visit to Israel's
neighbor, Jordan. I still hope that
an equitable solution can be found
with good will so that Cardinal
O'Connor's visit to Israel will be a
wholly successful one."

American Jewish Joint Distribu-

$50,000 to help rebuild a
kindergarten in San Salvador, the
capital of El Salvador, according
to Heinz Eppler, president of the

students, was destroyed by the
earthquake in October that left
nearly 1,00 people dead and

"The JDC allocation will match

Salvadoran Jewish community,"
Eppler said. "The combination of

Kiddush Cup Gift
Jewish War Veterans of the
U.S.A. will present a Kiddush cup
to the Jewish graduates of the
four major military academies, an-
nounced Edwin Goldwasser, na-
tional commander. "Often, the
ranking Jewish officers are called
upon to conduct services for

Agency officials said complaints
come mainly from professionals
and from neighbors. The youth
protection act mandates that
anyone suspecting that a child is
being molested must report such
suspicions to a government youth
protection office.
Tne Montreal agency uses such
devices as videotaping every in-
terview by a social worker with a
child suspected of being an abuse
victim. Solomon said the rationale
is to spare the child from suffering
the added trauma of repeatedly
describing the abuse. The
videotape can be used by police of-
ficials to help them decide what
action should be taken against the
adult offender. But the tapes can-
not be used as evidence in court.
Solomon said the JFSSSC had
been able to identify one local
Jewish man for whom children
have been the preferred sexual ob-
ject for at least two decades.
Even after the agency was able
to get from the offender a confes-
sion on videotape "that he has
been abusing children in the
Jewish community," it could do no
more than warn school officials to
be on the lookout for him.
Solomon said none of the parents
have been willing to prosecute
