Jewish leaders and Catholic
Archbishop of New York
John Cardinal O'Connor
have closed another stormy
chapter in the book of
Vatican relations with Israel
in a lengthy exchange on
controversial issues.
The controversy that began
before O'Connor even set foot in
Israel for the first time earlier this
month was not the first eruption
between O'Connor and the Jews
over Middle East politics. Last
summer, he disturbed Jewish
leadership by calling for a Palesti-
nian homeland afer visiting
The Vatican's continued refusal
to recognize Israel diplomatically
and to accept Jerusalem as
Israel's capital will most likely
prevent the events of the past
months from being the final
chapter in that book.
ALTHOUGH a cautiously-
worded joint statement issued
Monday (Jan. 19) by O'Connor
and eight leaders of major Jewish
organizations, following a three-
hour meeting at the Cardinal's
home, dealt little with the issues,
Nathan Perlmutter, director of
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, said "not an issue was
Nevertheless, the joint state-
ment highlighted agreements, not
"The meeting underscored the
fundamental agreement of both
the Cardinal and Jewish represen-
tatives on Israel's right to secure
and recognized boundaries, on the
importance .of addressing the
Palestinian problem and the plight
of the refugees as well as the need
to move toward peace in the
region,"the statement said.
The statement also noted that
the Jewish leaders recognized the
restraints placed upon O'Connor
by Vatican policy and expressed
appreciation for his apology over
cancelled meetings with some
Israeli leaders. O'Connor did,
however, meet with President
Chaim Herzog and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres in their
"THE JEWISH leaders regard
the Cardinal's visit as a helpful
contribution toward greater
understanding between the two
communities," the statement
The Jewish leaders explained
that they were concerned over
O'Connor's calls for Palestinian
self-determination and over a
statement about the Holocaust
which struck a raw nerve among
many Jews.
O'Connor elaborated on the con-
text of some of his statements in
trying to explain clearly his in-
tended meaning, Perlmutter said.
For example, O'Connor told the
leaders that there was a widely-
reported statement by him con-
cerning Palestinian self-
determination delivered in a
church in Jordan. What was not
widely reported, O'Connor said,
was that he followed up this call
by stressing the importance of any
kind of solution not endangering
Israel's security in any way,
Perlmutter said.
O'CONNOR ALSO elaborated
on his intended meaning in his
statement upon visiting Yad
Vashem in Jerusalem that the
Holocaust was "an enormous gift
that Judaism has given the
world." O'Connor had explained
earlier that suffering in Catholic
theology brings people closer to
the Almighty.
Perlmutter also said O'Connor
told the Jewish leaders that he
would have preferred for them to
draw their conclusions about his
trip after first discussing it with
him instead of from newspaper
reports. He was referring to a
critical statement issued by 53
Hospital Workers
Still on Strike
10,000 government hospital
employees on strike since Monday
(Jan. 19) were ordered by a

strikers indicated tha the court
order would not be observed.

Kohl Back in Office In Razor-Thin
Victory; Neo-Nazis Given Tiny Vote
Germany's oldest establish-
ed neo-Nazi political group,
the National Democratic
Party (NPD), won 0.6 per-
cent of the popular vote in
Sunday's general elections,
enough to qualify for State
financial aid but far below
the five percent needed for
representation in
Nevertheless, the NPD, which
garnered about 250,000 votes,
performed better than in the last
Bundestag elections in 1983 when
it drew only 0.2 percent.
THE COMBINED vote for the
NPD and all other extreme
rightwing factions Sunday
amounted to one percent of the
total votes cast.
"The Patriots," the European
branch of the Lyndon LaRouche
group in the U.S., the
"Courageous Citizens" and
similar groupings on the radical
right drew 0.4 percent between
Although the NPD achieved one
percent in the elections to the
Strasbourg-based Parliament of
Europe two years ago mainly
because of a poor turn-out
neither it nor any other faction on
the far right has emerged as a
political force of any consequence
in West Germany.
One reason is that they are
ideologically divided and split the
extremist vote between them.
Another is that the conservative
Christian Democratic Union
(CDU) headed by Chancellor
Helmut Kohl and its Bavarian
sister party, the Christian Social
Union (CSU), made a strong bid
for rightwing votes during the
election campaign.
leader of the CSU, campaigned on
the premise that it is time for Ger-
mans to "step out of Hitler's
shadow" and develop "normal"
national feelings. He also publicly
supported the thesis of those
historians who maintain that the
Holocasut, as bad as it was, was
no worse than other catastrophic
events in recent history.
The CDU, and its junior coali-
tion partner, the Free Democratic
Party (FDP) won Sunday's elec-
tions with 53.4 percent of the
Chancellor Kohl
popular vote which translates into
266 of the 496 seats in the
But Kohl's party, which achiev-
ed 44.3 percent Sunday compared
to 48.8 percent in the 1983 elec-
tions, registered its poorest per-
formance since the Federal
Republic was founded in 1949.
The centrist FDP and the anti-
NATO, environmentalist Green
Party chalked up the largest
gains. The former increased its
share of the vote to 9.1 percent,
from seven percent in 1983. The
Greens won 8.3 percent, up from
5.6 percent four years ago.
THE SOCIAL Democratic Par-
ty (SPD) remains the largest op-
position faction in parliament. It
drew 37 percent of the popular
vote, down form 38.2 percent in
1983, but better than predicted by
the pre-election opinion polls.
It is not possible to determine
how Jews cast their votes. There
are 30,000 Jews in West Ger-
many's more than 20,000 are eligi-
ble to vote. Observers here
assume they supported the CDU
or the FDP. But the Jewish vote is
too marginal to play any role in
national politics.
The Jewish community is scat-
tered, most living in West Berlin
and Frankfurt. But West
Berliners do not participate in the
national elections because of the
special status of the city which is
governed by the three Allied
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.

told an audience in Tel Aviv Monday.
THE OFFICER, who holds the rank of Lt. Colonel but
was not identified by name, said PLO terrorists were retur-
ning to their old bases in Sidon and Tyre and their presence
can be felt by the increased incidence of attempted attacks
on Israel.
The officer noted that Sidon and Tyre, on the Lebanese
coast, provide the terrorists with bases for night attacks on
Israel by sea.
LAPIDOT SAID the improved
capabilities of the Iraqi air force
would enable it to fly sorties
against Israel in a future war from
Iraqi territory without the need
for bases in Jordan or Syria.
The Iran-Iraq war is now in its
seventh year. While Iran, with
much greater manpower, appears
at the moment to have the edge on
the ground, Iraqi air power is con-
sidered superior to Iran's by most
experts here and abroad.
According to foreign sources,
however, the advanced anti-
aircraft and anti-tank weapons
sold to Iran covertly by the U.S.
and Israel, has been able to blunt
Iraq's superior air force and
Meanwhile, Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
strongly defended Israel's role in
the U.S.-Iran arms deal, at a press
conference in Jerusalem. He
maintained that it was less of an
arms deal than mutual probing for
"pragmatist" elements in Iran
who might one day succeed the
aging Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini, an avowed enemy of Israel
and the West.
IT WAS "a window of oppor-
tunity," Peres said, adding that
there was nothing wrong with ex-
ploring the possibility of a more
friendly Iran in the future.
Peres also insisted that the
value of arms shipped to Iran in
1985 did not exceed $5 million to
$6 million, a drop in the bucket
compared to the $400 billion Iran
has spent in its war with Iraq over
the last six years.

How Would Begin
Respond to PLO Now?
What would former Prime Minister
Menachem Begin say, were he to make any
public statements at all these days, about an
Israel Defense Forces announcement
According to a senior IDF military officer,
the military strength of the Palestine
Liberation Organization in Lebanon has
been restored to almost the same level as it
was when the IDF invaded that country in
June, 1982.
It is more than idle speculation to wonder
about Mr. Begin's reaction. He might say
that Israel had to bow to the wishes of a one-
sided international press that had long since
given up on Israel as a favorite, and now
shifted its support to the "Palestinians" in
the form of a new underdog.
Mr. Begin might say that Israel was never
given a genuine opportunity to wage Opera-
tion Peace for Galilee as it saw fit. He and
other members of the government and the
IDF had to take the often blackmailing
wishes of other "friendly" nations into ac-
count: the United States, Great Britain,
France, even the Soviet Union, which not
only threatened but in fact interceded as an
antagonist if not in numbers, certainly in
intimidating presence.
Friendly Blackmail
The French, for example, when PLO
chairman Yasir Arafat lost in Beirut and
shifted his operation to Tripoli, only to lose
there, as well, demanded that Israel give up
on trying finally to bring Arafat to heel, sent
a ship to Tripoli and ordered Israel to permit
Arafat to board the ship and leave Lebanon
not in defeat, but in pride.
The United States, for its part, insisted
that the defeated and in-tatters Syrian
forces be permitted to exit Lebanon back
toward Damascus, also unmolested and also
in pride. Syria began its march home, but
suddenly moved south into the Bekaa valley,
where its troops still are today, fully equip-
ped anew by the Soviet Union, and its air
force, also revitalized by the Soviets, is now
a major worry to its Israeli counterpart in
the event of war.
Throughout this time, the United States
suffered agonizingly humiliating attacks
upon its presence in Lebanon as a peace
emissary notably in Beirut, where some
260 Marines perished in one act of terrorism
at first claimed by a diversity of Arab-
inspired terrorists and terror groups, but to-
day dominantly assumed to have been
masterminded by Iran.
Media 'Impartiality'
Nor did Israel's war in Lebanon, once end-
ed, brine peace to that country which, at the
hands of the international television brigade
and the print media, raked Israel daily for
its "barbarism," but which they suddenly ig-
nored as sidebar news when the IDF went
home. Not a single TV war spectacular from
Beirut since then, except on the rarest of oc-
casions, to show the daily carnage wrought
by the ongoing war there. Not a single
newspaper column since then, except on the
same rarest of occasions, to wonder whether
Israel had really started the war in the first
place or responded to yet another civil war
long in progress which it saw as a threat to
its security.

Meanwhile, the terrorists improved their

ings or occasional murders of Americans,
Frenchmen, Germans, even a Saudi Arabian
businessman this week, doing business in
If the United States gave the agonizing
nations a moment of respite with the attack
upon Libya, it was a brief experience ex-
cept, of course, for our French friends, who
refused to cooperate in an overflight of their
territory. For the fact is that it is Syria and
Iran who are the greatest sources of
strength to terrorism in the Middle East to-
day, not Libya. And the United States is
clearly disinclined to involve itself in a
military operation mounted against either.
Libya, afterall, and madman Khadafy were
easy pickings. Not so either Syria or Iran.
Reagan's Silence
And speaking of Iran, about which Presi-
dent Reagan in his State of the Union
Message to Congress Tuesday night did
precious little, look what that nation has
brought upon us since it took our embassy in
Teheran hostage during the Carter Ad-
ministration in 1979 if one can forget
about the incredible arms-for-hostages
operation Mr. Reagan authorized, and which
he now wishes all of us frankly would forget.
And forget, too, about his demand during
Prime Minister Begin's operation in
Lebanon to permit the Syrians to go back
home in pride. Or his support for France's
demand in behalf of Arafat.
It is hardly likely that Mr. Begin will be
saying anything anymore in public on this or
any other subject. So we thought we would
say these things for him because they must
surely be on his tortured mind.
Putting Tiff to Rest
If we can accept as true the assertions by
Jewish leaders who have met with New
York's Cardinal O'Connor that he was
himself a victim of embarrassment brought
on by the sudden Vatican interdiction of his
Rabbi Says
emigration wwcyy
trip to Israel and that the irritation between
O'Connor and American Jewry is now at an
end, then an interview that the Cardinal
gave to the Voice of Israel Radio from New
York is clear.
Said the Cardinal: the Vatican is moving in
the right direction with respect to recogniz-
ing Israel, but changes in Vatican policy are
historically slow.
According to the Jewish leaders, members
all of the Conference of Presidents of Major
Jewish Organizations, O'Connor saw no
reason why he should not visit Israel's top
political leaders in Jerusalem but had, with
embarrassment, to bow to the wishes of his
superiors in the Vatican who had informed
him of their wishes only after his arrival
This certainly gives credence to Cardinal
O'Connor's radio interview, which essential-
ly restated what he said well before he left
on his trip to the Middle East. This also sug-
gests that the Jewish leaders are correct in
their assumption. May it be so. Cardinal
O'Connor should be a valued friend, not a
distant antagonist.
Reform Conversions Are Long, Arduous
Friday, February 6,1987

Number 5
On the last day of
December, Israel's Minister
of the Interior, Rabbi Yit-
zhak Peretz, resigned
rather than obey a Supreme
Court ruling ordering him to
register as a Jew Shoshana
Miller, an American-born
immigrant to Israel con-

Reform rabbi.
The Supreme Court ruling and
the controversy over the right of
persons converted by non-
Orthodox rabbis to enter Israel
under the Law of Return has
focussed new attention on Reform

for the great majority of all new

Our Readers Write: There's No
Conflict Between Light, Sunlight
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
An article in the Jan. 23 edition
of The Jewish Floridian entitled
"Can Modern Science and Its
Practitioners Be Reconciled To-
day?", by Arthur J. Magida,
quotes Dr. Jacobovitz of
Baltimore as stating that the ac-
count of light being created on the
first day of creation is inconsis-
tent with the account of the sun
being created on the fourth day.
There is no inconsistency in this
that I can see.
The midrash, Braishit Rabo, ch.
3, provides the answer. The light
of the first day emanated from the
creator. See Psalms 104, verse 2.
The light of the first day has
been replaced by sunlight, and it is
not scheduled to shine again until
the messianic age. In this context,

By the year 2000, 30 million
Americans will be over age 65.
Where will they be housed? Dur-

made that "It is most important
not to think of people at any age

different from each other as those
who are seven."
Throughout the U.S., communi-

Peres Declares
Jews More Important Than Ties
Premier and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres in-
dicated here Thursday (Jan.
22) that Israel considers
Soviet action to ease the
plight of Jews in the USSR
more important than the
restoration of diplomatic
ties between Israel and the
Soviet Union.
He hinted that such action could
ease Israel's objections to Soviet
participation in an international
conference on Middle East peace.
Israel is not averse to Soviet par-
ticipation, he said, but Moscow
must "pay the price" by making
its own peace with Israel, and
Israel's top priority are the rights
and well-being of Soviet Jews.
ADDRESSING an audience of
Anglo-Jewish leaders, Peres
recalled that Israel raised that
issue at the brief meeting between
Israeli and Soviet representatives
in Helsinki last August, and the
Russians were furious that a small
country dared to lay down condi-
tions to a superpower.
The Russians wanted to discuss
the status of Russian Orthodox
Church properties in the Holy
Land, Peres said. "Aren't people
more important than property?"
he asked.
"We hope they (the Soviet
leaders) will change their attitude
toward Russian Jews. Then we
won't place so much importance
on having Russian diplomats in
Ramat Gan." Ramat Gan is a
suburb of Tel Aviv where many
embassies are located.
PERES ALSO stressed the
need to maintain the impetus of
the peace process with Jordan. He
claimed that Israel has "paved the
way" by modifying its policies in
the West Bank.
The Israeli Foreign Minister
called for British and European
economic aid to Jordan and other
Arab countries of the Middle East
suffering economically from the
drop in oil prices. "At the gates of
hunger you'll always have an
assembly of bitterness and
revolt," he warned. He referred
also to the Iraq-Iran war which he
called a no-win situation.
"Victory for Iran will pose a
religious menace for the Arabs. If
Iraq wins, it will be a religious
menace to the (Arab-Israeli) peace

Chancellor Kohl Calls on Germans
Not To Forget Nazi Crimes
BONN (JTA) Chancellor Helmut Kohl, on the 45th
anniversary of the "Final Solution," has called on Germans
never to forget the crimes of the Nazi era.
"We Germans must never forget, repress or trivialize
the crimes of Nazism because only by remembering them
will we be capable of reconciliation," Kohl said. "The
memory of those who were deported in Germany's name,
enslaved, humiliated and murdered in the extermination
camps of Auschwitz, Treblinka, Birkenau, Maidanek and
Sobibor obliges us never again to stir feelings of hatred."
ON JAN. 20,1942, leaders of the Third Reich, meeting
in the Wannsee suburb of Berlin, drafted the "Final Solu-
tion" to the Jewish problem the mass extermination of
Europe's Jewish population. On Tuesday (Jan. 20), a
memorial service was held at the villa where the meeting
took place. One of the speakers, Heinz Galinski, chairman
of West Germany's Jewish community, warned that many
German politicians and historians were attempting to bury
the past.
Kohl's statement was seen in part as a response to
similar charges by the opposition Social Democratic Party
(SPD) which faced and Sunday lost to the Chancellor's rul-
ing Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in a general
Legal Abortions
Increase by 15 Percent
JERUSALEM (JTA) Legal abortions increased by
15 percent in Israel since a law limiting the right to abor-
tion was passed by the Knesset nine years ago.
ACCORDING TO figures released Monday, the Health
Ministry approved 9,300 abortions in the first six months of
1986. Health authorities estimate that 10,000 abortions are
performed illegally every year by private physicians.
The main grounds for approved abortions are pregnan-
cies which endanger the lives of the mothers, physically
deformed fetuses and pregnancies resulting from extra-
marital relations by married women.
The latest figures on abortions were released after a
17-year-old girl from Safed died of complications during an
illegal abortion.
THE INCIDENT prompted a delegation from Naamat,
the Labor Zionist women's organization, to call on Educa-
tion Minister Yitzhak Navon and the Knesset Education
Committee Monday to urge sex education in school.

Defense Ministry's Travel Ban
Dismays 3 Jewish Leaders
dialogue appears to be a political
and not a security act."
Three prominent American
Jews have expressed
dismay over the Israeli
Defense Ministry's decision
last week not to issue travel
passes to two leading
Palestinians from the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip to
attend an international sym-
posium on the Middle East
at the San Diego State
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, vice
president of the World Jewish
Congress, Dr. Rita Hauser,
former U.S. delegate to the
United Nations, and Stephen
Shalom, said in a joint statement
that the decision not to allow
former Hebron Mayor Mustapha
abd A-Nabi Natshe and Gaza
lawyer Fayez Abu-Rahme to join
them in high level meetings to ex-
plore ways to move the Mideast
peace process forward harms the
cause of peace and damages
Israeli's image as a serious seeker
of peace.
THEY NOTED that, ironically,
Abu-Rahme is one of two Palesti-
nians who was appointed by the
Israeli government as a potential
Palestinian representative in
peace talks between Israel and a
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation.
"If he was acceptable then, why is
he a security risk now?" the three
Israeli security sources said the
two Palestinians were denied
travel permits because there was
a concern they would use the occa-
sion to meet 'with hostile
elements, bat did not elaborate.
"Denying travel permits to
these Palestinians because of
'hostile elements' with whom they
might meet does not teem to con-
stitute sufficient ground for such
action," the joint statement said.
"Barring Palestinians known for
their moderate voice from par-
ticipating in a constructive
Soviets have made disparate deci-
sions on two critically ill refusenik
cancer patients who have been
struggling for many years to leave
the Soviet Union for treatment
and reunification with family in
the West.
Inna Meiman, 54, of Moscow ar-
rived Sunday (Jan. 18) in
Washington, D.C., to undergo
evaluation and treatment of a
recurrent neck tumor. Meiman ar-
rived at Dulles Airport accom-
panied only by a nurse provided
by the American Embassy in
Moscow. The Soviets would not
allow her husband, Naum, 75, and
ailing, to accompany her, and
would only grant Inna a tem-
porary visa for one year's stay.
Naum is an 11-year refusenik and
human rights activist.
HOWEVER, Leah Maryasin, a
16-year refusenik from Riga who
suffers from multiple myeloma,
received an exit visa Monday,
along with her husband, Alex-
ander, and daugher, Faina. The
61-year-old woman is expected to
join her sister and brother-in-law,
Mara and Eugene Katz, in Toron-
to in two weeks, according to
B'nai B'rith Canada.
Meiman, describing her own
prognosis as "very grim," told the
crowned press conference conven-
ed by the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, "I haven't come to
America to die; I have come to
recover and to help others to get
out of the Soviet Union."
Admitting that she had left the
USSR, and her husband, with
mixed emotions, Meiman said she
was "delighted" to help others to
leave and to prove "We are not
slaves but people with rights," yet
dismayed that her husband, her
son and his family were not per-
mitted to join her. "My arriving
alone shows how bad things are in
the Soviet Union. People are just
desperate. If I had been allowed to
come three years ago, my chances
would be better."
THE ARRIVAL of Meiman,
and the expected release of
Maryasin, brings to four of a
group of five the number of cancer
patient refuseniks who have
received visas since October.
The other two are Tanya
Bogomolny, who now lives in San
Francisco with her husband, Ben-
jamin, who as a 20-year refusenik
made the Guiness Book of World
Records as the longest refusenik
on record; and Rimma Brawe,
who arrived in Rochester, N.Y., in
December with her husband
Vladimir after waiting nearly
eight years to emigrate.
The remaining member of the
International Cancer Patients
Solidarity Committee is Benjamin
Charny of Moscow. Charny suf-
fers from severe cardiac problems
as well as several forms of cancer,
and has been unable to receive
cancer surgery because of his car-
diac condition.
LEON CHARNY, Benjamin's
brother, said he was heartened by
the news that Maryasin had been
given a visa and saw a good omen
in it for his brother's chance to
join him in the Boston suburb
where he lives.
Leon Charny told JTA that
"any positive development should
be positively acknowledged. I am
very happy for the Maryasins and
happy for Inna that she has a new
chance for treatment. But of
course, I am especially anxious to
see the same happening for my
brother's family. And frankly, I
am hopeful that Inna's family will
be able to join her too."
3 Terrorists
IDF Kills
Israel Defense Force patrol killed
three terrorists last week near
Markabe village in the central sec-
tor of the south Lebanon security
zone. According to a military
spokesman, the terrorists were
encountered about a mile from
Kibbutz Manara in Upper Galilee
where they apparently intended
to infiltrate across the border into
The incident brought to seven
the number of terrorists killed in
the previous 24 hours. Four were
killed Sunday (Jan. 18) night in a
clash with the IDF just north of
the security zone.
IDF sources told Israel Radio
Tuesday that the latest intercep-
tion probably averted a "major in-
cident," as the terrorists were
heavily armed. Kalachnikov rifles,
revolvers, hand grenades, rockets
and a quantity of explosives were
discovered near their bodies.
During the past 10 weeks, the
IDF killed 12 terrorists in the
security zone or just north of it.
All apparently were attempting to
infiltrate into Israel.

Allegations of Firearms Misuse
Lead To Investigation of Settlers
Sephardic leaders David Levy (right), Deputy
Prime Minister of Israel, and Nissim Gaon,
president of the World Sephardi Federation,
were key speakers at the annual conference of
the American Sephardi Federation in
Philadelphia last month. In a major address,
Gaon warned that 'Sephardi Jewry will
become a historic memory' unless 'adequate
and modern educational, cultural and
religious facilities' are provided to the
younger generation of Sephardim both in
Israel and the Diaspora. Among If. million
Jews living outside Israel, he said, Sephardim

Senator Edward M. Kennedy Speaks On
Arms Sales, Soviet Jews And Terror
Israel bravely struggles to make
peace with her neighbors, the
Reagan Administration has
repeatedly attempted to launch
yet another unacceptable round of
arms sales to Jordan, Saudi
Arabia and other nations that are
the sworn enemies of Israel," said
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy
(D.,Mass.) at- a recent testimonial
dinner here sponsored by the
Jewish National Fund.
"I oppose these arm sales,"
Sen. Kennedy continued. -"We do
not seek a confrontation with the
Administration, but neither will
we remain silent while they pur-
sue arms deals that could en-
danger Israel."
ON THE issue of Soviet Jewry
and emigration, Kennedy said,
"We plead for the freedom of our
brothers and sisters condemned in
the Soviet Union to prison cells or
exile for their heritage."
He added, "Jewish emigration
is still at unacceptably low levels.
Only 1,100 were permitted to
depart in 1985, compared to a
high of 51,000 in 1979. The red
flag of the Soviet Union may sym-
bolize the forces that oppress
Jews, but no hammer can ever
blunt their spirit, and no sickle can
ever destroy their faith."
"We must fight oppression and
terror wherever they occur," the
Senator said, turning his atten-
tion to world terrorism. "The
events of the last year once again
proved to all the world that the
PLO terrorists are not freedom-
fighters. They are cold-blooded
pirates who slaughtered Leon Kl-
inghoffer, an elderly man in
wheelchair. They are cowards
who murdered Jews worshipping
at the Western Wall in Jerusalem
and in the Neve Shalom
Synagogue in Istanbul."
"WE CANNOT remain silent
while nations such as Syria, Libya
and Iran provide safe haven and
support for these fanatics," he ad-
ded. "The thugs who prey on inno-
cent civilians deserve no hiding
place, any place on earth."
Kennedy assserted. "Justice
shall prevail not through the
bomb or the bullet, but through
the path of peace,"
Sen. Kennedy's relationship
with JNF dates back over 20
years to 1966, when he planted a
tree in memory of his late brother,
President John F. Kennedy, in the
Kennedy Peace Forest which sur-
rounds JNF's Kennedy Memorial,
near Jerusalem. During a recent
trip to Israel, Sen. Kennedy
returned to the Memorial and
planted another tree in a private
At the Philadelphia dinner, he
said, "I know my brother, Jack,
would be proud of the John F.
Kennedy Memorial and Peace
Forest in Israel, which JNF has
created. The eternal light from
that monument is a shining
beacon of our determination to
complete the unfinished agenda of
progress and justice to which
President Kennedy dedicated his
life. And the green forest surroun-
ding the memorial is an eternal
reminder of our dedication to the
cause of Israel."

According to reports, Jewish
settlers driving to prayers at
Joseph's Tomb on the outskirts of
the city were stoned by Arabs.
The settlers gave chase, entered
the refugee camp and fired three

that the settlers leave. Rabin said
he wants a thorough investigation
to determine whether the settlers

THE DEFENSE Minister also
spent Tuesday morning (Jan. 20)
in Nablus meeting with heads of
Arab universities in the West
Bank to discuss the increasing in-
cidence of student violence. While
he was touring Nablus, a stone
was thrown at Rabin's convoy.
The assailant was caught and held
for questioning.
During his meeting with Hafez
Toukan, the Israel-appointed
Mayor of Nablus. and the head-
masters of five universities, Kabin
stressed that Israel does not want
to interfere in academic affairs
but that he would not permit the
campuses to become centers of
unrest for the entire area. Accor-
ding to Rabin, the universities
have replaced the refugee camps
as the main source of disorder in
the West Bank during the past
five months.
Two students were fatally shot
by Israeli soldiers during a riot at
Bir Zeit University near Ramallah
on Dec. 4. A-Najah University in
Nablus has been shut down
periodically because of student
violence. It was ordered closed
again Monday for four days in an-
ticipation of violent demonstra-
tions said to be planned by

ed that A-Najah was the target of
discrimination because Bir Zeit
has been allowed to remain open.
Rabin explained that the latest
closure order was a preventive
HE SAID at a press conference
later that it was not necessary to
wait until violence breaks out
before taking measures to avoid
it. Rabin also maintained that
there was no political significance
in the fact that a ranking Cabinet
Minister held meetings with
Palestinians in the West Bank.
He said there is no independent
political leadership in the ter-
ritories at present willing to enter
into negotiations because they

Dissidents Warn U.S.
Soviet Benefits Hinge on Emigration
Natan Sharansky and
Yuri Orlov, the two leading
human rights activists who
were recently allowed to
emigrate from the Soviet
Union, warned Friday
against granting the USSR
trade benefits before there
is a marked increase in
"First improvement of emigra-
tion, then improvement of trade,"
said Orlov, who was the founder
of the Moscow Helsinki Monitor-
ing Group. "But not in reverse
ORLOV AND Sharansky, who
were released from Soviet labor
camps in apparent gestures to the
Reagan Administration, testified
before a Commission of Inquiry
sponsored by the Union of Coun-
cils for Soviet Jews on Capitol Hill
to demonstrate the Soviet Union's
violation of the Helsinki Accords.
They were questioned by Sens.
William Armstrong (R., Colo.) and
Charles Grassley (R., Iowa),
former Sen. Richard Stone (D.,
Fla.) and Stuart Eizenstat, the
UCSJ's legal counsel and a former
special assistant to President
Both Orlov and Sharansky said
the West should not be taken in by
gestures such as their release.
Sharansky said there is a "desire
in the West to be deceived" by
such gestures because of the fear
of nuclear war.
prisoners said that Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev seems to
placate the West with gestures
such as the release of some Soviet
prisoners and allowing emigration
for the reunification of families,
but he balances this with harsher
restrictions at home.
Sharansky noted that the new
emigration law which went into
effect Jan. 1 starts by claiming a
free emigration policy. But then,
he noted, it makes emigration pro-
cedures more restrictive allowing
emigration only for those who
would be reunited with close
relatives, defined as parents,
children and brothers and sisters.
He said that as far as Soviet
Jews are concerned, even if all
30,000 who fit the above category
were allowed to leave, it would be
only 10 percent of the 380,000
who have earlier received invita-
tions from Israel and have been
denied visas.
SHARANSKY urged Congress
not to continue with vague calls
for increased emigration, which
totalled only 914 in 1986, but to
set fixed guidelines. He said if
20,000 Jews were allowed to
emigrate, one concession could be
made: if 50,000 left, another, and
if all who asked to leave were
allowed to go, the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment could be lifted.
Eizenstat said that in 1979,
after 50,000 Jews were allowed to
emigrate, he brought Carter a
proposal from then Rep. Charles
Vanik (D., Ohio), the co-sponsor of
the amendment that links trade
benefits for the Soviet Union to
increased emigration, to tem-
porarily lift the restrictions. But
nothing was done because Sen.
Henry Jackson (D.r Wash.) and
most Jewish groups were oppos-
ed, he said.
He noted that the next year
emigration dropped to 21,471 and
has fallen yearly ever since. He
wondered whether the Carter Ad-
ministration had made a mistake.
But Sharanskv said he believes
the large emigration in 1979, at a
time when he was in prison, was
an effort by the Soviet Union to
the reason for the drop in emigra-
tion. He said that while as an
Israeli citizen he would like to see
more Jews, from the U.S. as well
as the USSR, go to Israel, the
large number of dropouts is only
an excuse used by Moscow.
Meanwhile, Lynn Singer, ex-
ecutive director of the Long
Island Committee for Soviet
Jewry and a former president of
the UCSJ, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that she
learned Friday that Lev Blitsh-
tein, a 56-year-old Moscow
refusenik who had been denied an
emigration visa since 1975, was
told he could leave. Blitshtein's
longtime refusal was based on his
supposed knowledge of "secrets"
regarding meat storage.
Blitshtein was forced to divorce
his wife, Buma, so that she and
their children, Boris and Galina,
could emigrate. They have lived in
the United States since 1976.
Singer noted that Blitshtein has
over the years been especially
helpful to the families of Jewish
Prisoners of Conscience.

BECAUSE THE process of
becoming Jewish is one of growth
and development, the Reform
Jewish community conducts ongo-
ing study groups and sponsors
week-end retreats and social
gatherings for those who have
completed the course of study and
become converts. In this way,
Jews-by-choice (as they are called)
become part of a congenial en-
vironment that helps them adjust
to a new way of life and a unique
religious frame of reference.
Reform Judaism also places
special emphasis on helping born
Jews to be understanding and sup-
portive of those who have volun-
tarily become Jews. Jews-by-birth
are reminded that Judaism has'
always considered converts to be
full-fledged members of the
Jewish community.
More than 800 years ago, the
great Jewish physician and
teacher Maimonides was asked by
the convert Obadiah whether, in
his prayers, he had the right to ut-
ter the words "Our God and God
of our fathers." Maimonides'
answer is as fitting today as it was
then. He said in part:
"WHOEVER adopts Judaism
and confesses the unity of the
Divine Name, as it is prescribed in
the Torah, is counted among the
disciples of Abraham our Father
... since you have come under the
wings of the Divine Presence and
confessed the Lord, no difference
exists between you and us, and all
miracles done to us have been
done as it were to us and to
"Do not consider your origin as
inferior," Maimonides wrote to
Obadiah. "While we are the
descendants of Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob, you derive from Him
through whose word the world
was created."

In issuing an invitation to
members of the Jewish communi-
ty in the Miami area to attend the
public sessions. Dr. Stein stressed
that after a quarter of a century of
steady growth in serving the
health, educational, vocational
training and social service needs

Established in 1960 at the in-
itiative of Dr. Sol Stein, then Ex-
ecutive Director of the National
Committee for Labor Israel, the
Israel Histadrut Foundation has
developed a program of deferred
giving for the benefit of the social,
health, vocational training and
related services provided by
Histadrut in Israel to 85 percent
of the population. During its first
quarter century, the Foundation
has secured some $94 Million in
commitments for its humanitarian
Dr. Stein, who made his mark as
an effective director of the Jewish
National Fund in Belgium before
World War II, and then in
Philadelphia after his arrival in
America, has devoted six decades
to assist in the promotion of the
"financial health" of Israel,
before and after the State's in-
dependence. His crowning
achievement is the Israel
Histadrut Foundation, which has
pioneered new forms of deferred
giving, innovative programs in
the field of testamentary be-
quests, high-yield annuities, and
Israel-related charitable re-
mainder trusts.
"When the Foundation was
born in 1960, we had modest
goals, a few millions at a time,"
says Dr. Stein. "But the idea
caught on, as thousands of
American Jews made com-
mitments, that benefitted
themselves as well as Israel, and
the total has swelled. A hundered
million dollars in those days was
as remote as the moon. But man
shortly that did reach the moon,
and we hope to reach our targets
in the near future, too."
A vigorous man always brimm-
ing with new ideas, Dr. Stein is
particularly proud of the people
who have been attracted to the
long-range vision of the Histadrut
Foundation. Among them is the
founding chairman of IHF, former
Supreme Court Justice Arthur J.
Goldberg, who continues to take a
deep personal interest in its pro-
gress, as well as Rabbi Leon
Kronish, Senior Founding Rabbi
of Temple Beth Sholom in Miami
Beach, who is the Honorary
Chairman of the IHF Board of
Directors and Rabbi Morton

ple Beth Shalom in Hollywood,

man of the IHF Board of

Sharon Criticizes Unity Gov't.,
Says Leadership Is 'Paralyzed'
Sharon sharply criticized the
Labor-Likud unity coalition
government in which he serves as
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Sunday night and told a
rally of 2,000 members of his own
Herat Party that their leadership
was "paralyzed."
Sharon, an outspoken Likud
hardliner who advocates massive
Jewish settlement of the ad-
ministered territories, derided the
unity government on that issue.
He said this was the first year
since the 1967 Six-Day War that
no budget has been allocated to
purchase land in the territories.
Speaking at the Tel Aviv
Fairgrounds, he demanded the
sort of education that would make
Israeli youngsters proud Jews. He
decried the "slackening of convic-
tion (of Jews) over all of Eretz
Israel and the erosion of national
"This is what leads to the
weakening of the State more than
any security or economic pro-
blem," Sharon said.
In his speech Sunday, Sharon
urged that the convention be
reconvened at the earliest mo-
ment to instill new life into the
Herat movement. "There is no
need to wait for another two mon-
ths," he said.

Temple Beth El
Hollywood -
Temple Beth El will present
its 14th Annual Doppelt Lecture
on Sunday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. "The
Abandonment of the Jews:
America and the Holocaust,
1941-1945" will be the subject of
this lecture by David S. Wyman,
Professor of American History at
the University of Massachusetts.
"The Abandonment of the
Jews" is also the title of the wide-
ly read book written by Dr.
Wyman, published in 1984, voted
one of the eleventh "Best Books
of 1985" by the New York Times
Book Review. The book was
acknowleded to have helped in-
fluence the United States govern-
ment's decision to airlift 812
Ethiopian Jews from the Sudan to
Safety in Isreal in March, 1985.
This book is a well documented in-
dictment not only of the indif-
ference and silence of American
and British leaders, and of the
press, to the plight and extermina-
tion of European Jews during the
Nazi onslaught, but also of the in-
activity of American Jewish
leaders and of the Church during
the early years of WorJd War II.
Interestingly, Dr. Wyman is the
grandson of two Protestant
ministers. He was born in
Weymouth, Mass. in 1921. His
primary field of historical interest
has been the era of Franklin D.
Roosevelt and, in addition to
teaching modern American
history, he also teaches courses on
the Holocaust and Judaic studies.
He earned a Bachelor's degree
from Boston University, a
Master's degree from Plymouth
(N.H.) State College and a PhD

from Harvard University with his
dissertation on "American
Refugee Policy, 1938-1941." This
was the basis of his first book,
Paper Walls: America and the
Refugee Crisis, 1988-1H1. His
other writings include an article in
Commentary Magazine-1978, en-
tilted, "Why Auschiwitz Was
Never Bombed," published in both
German and Hebrew. His chapter,
"The American Jewish Leader-
ship and the Holocuast" will ap-
pear in a new book by Randolph L.
Braham (ed.)., Jewish Leadership
During the Nazi Era: Patterns of
Behavior in the Free World, soon
to be published.
David Wyman is a special ad-
visor to the United States
Holocaust Memorial Council and a
member of the Academic Ad-
visory Board of the Simon
Wiesenthal Center. He has receiv-
ed an honorary Doctor of Humane
Letters degree from the Hebrew
Union College Jewish Institute of
Religion and was the Commence-
ment Speaker at HUCJIR in June
1986. He has also received awards
from Hadassah, the Jewish

POC Zunshain
To Be Released
From Siberian
Labor Camp
Prisoner of Conscience Zachar
Zunshain is scheduled to be releas-
ed form a Siberian labor camp six
weeks before his three-year term
for "anti-Soviet slander" is com-
pleted and allowed to leave for
Israel three days later, according
to the Union of Councils of Soviet
Jews and the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ).
Zunshain's wife, Tatyana, said
last week that Soviet authorities
told her she should submit an exit
applications for herself and her
husband. The couple has been
denied visas since 1980.
ZUNSHAIN'S sentence to a
labor camp followed his arrest
March 6, 1984, for "circulation of
fabrications known to be false
which defame the Soviet state and
social system." The charges were
based on letters he himself wrote
to Soviet authorities asking them
to revoke his Soviet citizenship
and allow him to leave for Israel
with his wife.
According to the SSSJ, he was
also arrested following a five-
minute demonstration in front of
the Boshoi Theater in Moscow
asking for emigration visas.
Zunshain is a 35-year-old
physicist from Riga who has been
imprisoned in the Irkutsk labor
camp in Siberia.
IN A RELATED development,
the SSSJ reported that two
refuseniks who are also involved
in the unofficial peace movement
in the Soviet Union are also said
to be about to be released: Yuri
Chekanovsky, 42, a five-year
refusenik, married and the father
of three children; and Yuri
Rozensweig, 40, refused seven
years, also father of three. In
May, 1986, both families
demonstrated in Red Square in
Moscow for exit visas.
Another member of the unof-
ficial peace movement, Vladimir
Brodsky, was released in
September 1986 after serving on-
