Fallout On Hostage Crisis
Damage To
Israel 'Minimal'
NEW YORK Fears that
U.S.-Israeli relations might be
damaged by Israel's capture of
a Shiite extremist leader and
the ensuing hostage crisis have
not been borne out, say Jewish
community officials and obser-
Even with some public opin-
ion polls indicating a sudden
erosion in popular support for
Israel, they say, pro-Israel
feelings have survived a week
of harsh scrutiny and worri-
some remarks on the part of
President Bush and Senate
Minority leader Robert Dole.
But Jewish leaders told
President Bush Tuesday they
were concerned that the hos-
tage situation in Lebanon
could adversely affect public
support for Israel.
White House spokesman
Marlin Fitzwater said the lead-
ers were concerned over "gen-
eral public attitudes that might
develop" toward Israel in the
aftermath of its capture of a
Shiite extremist leader,
Sheikh Abdul Karim Obeid.

The occasion was a phone-in

was Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, visibly enjoying direct

He received the traditional
Israeli response that Israel
will talk only to Arab countries
and to representatives of the
residents in the administered
territories. Most of the other
questions dealt with the Pales-
tinian issue, with many caller
arguing that Israel should
negotiate with the PLO.
Arens politely told his
phone-mates that he was glad
he could talk directly to resi-
dents of Arab countries, but
they failed to move him away
from the traditional Israeli
position to boycott anything
that smells PLO.
In fact, when Mike Yunis,
the PLO representative in
Cyprus, phoned in with the
same question, Arens refused
to talk to him.
There are no direct tele-
phone lines between Israel and
the Arab world, with the
exception of Egypt. Solan
Communications in London, a
private communications com-
pany, arranged the telephone
hookup through a computer-
ized transmitter. Arab listen-
ers dialed 00-4416-248244 and
were directly linked with the
studio in Jerusalem.

East Beirut, wanted to know

He told the Israeli minister
that most of the people in

would end up with an

into the Obeid kidnapping, but

Higgins Died Long Ago,
Data Suggests
Growing evidence suggests
that Lt. Col. William Higgins
was killed long before a Shiite
group released a videotape of
his "execution" on July 31.
An administration official
quoted by The Washington
Post said the "working
assumption" is that he was
killed sometime after the
shooting down of an Iranian
airliner over the Persian Gulf
in July 1988.
ABC News this week
reported that forensic experts
suspect Higgins was killed
shortly after his kidnapping in
February 1988.
They arrived at that conclu-
sion because the body in the
videotape appeared to be
clean-shaven, dressed in win-
ter clothes and not emaciated,
as many hostages tend to look
after months in captivity.
The timing of Higgins' death
is significant, because it could
disprove his kidnappers'
claims that he was hanged in
retaliation for Israel's capture
of their leader, Sheikh Abdul
Karim Obeid.

Terrorism, Continued
Last week, we expressed concern that the
presumed execution of Lt. Col. William Hig-
gins might unleash an anti-Israel backlash.
Thankfully, cooler heads have prevailed. The
Hezbollah terrorists are no longer threatening
to execute I'.S. hostage Joseph Cicippio. Iran
has hinted at a willingness to help resolve the
crisis and the Bush administration has muted
any direct criticism of Israel.
Whatever the outcome, it is clear that the
United States must pursue a comprehensive
settlement for ALL the hostages. An appease-
ment policy or tit-for-tat exchange will only
encourage more kidnapings and violence.
We should take a lesson from the 1930s,
when the appeasement camp attacked Win-
n Churchill for standing up against Adolf
Hitler. The reluctance of some Americans to
face hard truths played into Hitler's hands and
made his job that much easier.
Let's substitute Israel for Churchill and
Hezbollah for Hitler. Israel, like Churchill, has
refused to buckle under to demogogues. Sure
the Israelis took a big risk in kidnaping
Shiek Abdul Karim Obeid but at least they
were willing to strike out and DO something.
A recent poll by Time Magazine-Cable News
Network indicated that 58 percent of Ameri-
cans support negotiations to end the crisis and
50 percent said the administration should
refrain from bombing terrorist hideouts in
Lebanon if innocent people might be killed.
There is nothing wrong with negotiations as
long as the involved parties are sincere. We do
not. however, have any reason to trust the
murderous Hezbollah terrorists and certainly
Iran has been no great friend of the United
States. We should give them the benefit of the
doubt, but at the same time keep our military
options open.
Israel's kidnaping of the sheik may have
provoked a short-term crisis, but it also
exposed the long-festering wound of state-
supported Hezbollah terrorism. When and if
the Western hostages are finally released,
perhaps we may look upon Israel's unilateral
action as the catalyst for change.

delegation was invited to the
U.S. Embassy for a compre-

embassy specialists. Bloch

It became evident to our
group that Lauder and his
deputy chief of mission were
operating on different wave

ately about his concerns over
Austrian anti-Semitism,
Austrian-Israeli relations and
especially about the cause of
Soviet Jewry. (Austria has
been the transfer center for
some 250,000 Jews from the
Soviet Union and Iran.)
In subsequent "coffee talk,"
Bloch cautiously but clearly
left the impression that he
thought Lauder was miscon-
struing his role.
"He is supposed to be the
ambassador of the United
States to Austria, not the
ambassador of the UJA," he
told several of us. We were
flabbergasted by his comments
and told him so.

oped a close relationship with

converted to the Presbyterian
church, hoping to escape from
the perils of anti-Semitism
from which his father's family
had suffered.
He intermarried, and his
children are not known to be

Andrea, however, claims that
despite his conversion, her
father "felt an intense connec-
tion to the Jewish faith."
In sum, I know nothing
about the validity of the
charges and rumors about his

know it will be a very bad rap

connection between his Jewish
background and his alleged
betrayal of his country.

From Beirut To Jerusalem"
Times Reporter Tells Of Battle
For Truth In Middle East
I'll meet you at the Omni
Hotel garage entrance. What
do I look like? Like a Lebanese
guerrilla hijacker.
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
You've got to have a sense of
humor, says Thomas D. Fried-
It's necessary when you're
26 years old, barely out of
graduate school, and you find
yourself covering the civil war
in Lebanon, where "death
without reason" is the harsh-
est fate of all.
Friedman turned 36 the day
he came to The Jewish Florid-
ian for an interview. That day
he learned that his book,
"From Beirut to Jerusalem,"
had just made the New York
Times\ bestseller list, less than
a month after it was released.
For the past 10 years Fried-
man was the chief correspon-
dent for the New York Times
in Beirut and Jerusalem. He
has won two Pulitzer prizes for
his coverage of the war-
ravaged Middle East and some
speculate that his new book
may win him a third.
Friedman had been the first
Jewish reporter sent by the
Times to cover the Middle
East. "A Jew who wants to
make a career working in or
studying about the Middle
East will always be a lonely
man," Friedman said. "He will
never be fully accepted or
trusted by the Arabs, and he
will never be fully accepted or
trusted by the Jews."
But being a correspondent
for one of the world's most
influential newspapers led to a
symbiotic relationship
between Friedman and his
sources: He needed them and
they needed him.
Still, there was "always a
tension in my gut," Friedman
recalls. "I was constantly
aware of the gap between who
I was and who many people
assumed I was. Whenever I
was interviewing a militia
leader or Arab statesman, my
mind would start racing
uncontrollably: What if this
guy knew who I was? Would he
care if he knew I was bar
mitzvahed at the Adath
Jeshuren Synagogue in Min-
neapolis in 1966? Would he be
shocked to know that my older
sister is a Lubavitcher Hasidic

Jew with seven children living
in Miami Beach?"
Friedman describes himself
as having come from "a rather
typical middle-class American
Jewish family." His father sold
ball bearings and his mother
was a homemaker and part-
time bookkeeper.
"I'm not a religious person
in the least. I just go to syna-
gogue three times a year like a
lot of other American Jews."
He says he would be consid-
ered a Zionist if that refers to
someone who believes in the
right of Jewish people to a
homeland in Israel. But "some
people define Zionists as some-
one who intends to live there
and I don't intend to live
there because I see myself as
an American and living out my
life and my identity in this

visiting Israel and picking

Soon after Friedman gra-
duated from Brandeis Univer-
sity, he enrolled
at St.Antony's College, Oxford
University, where he took
a master's degree in the
history and politics of the
Middle East. By the time
he graduated Friedman

States, where he wrote the
513-page book that details his
Middle East experience.
He acknowleges that his
book doesn't offer a solution to
the Middle East conflict, but
he does suggest what role the
United States might play:
"The ideal statesman has to
know how to think like an
obstetrician, behave like a
friend, bargain like a grocer
and fight like a son-of-a-bitch."
Friedman later suggested
that America could deliver the
greatest peace possible but
only if "the parties themselves
are ready to get pregnant,
nurture a settlement
"If they are ready you have
to know how to be a friend ... a
friend tells you the truth
about a situation. You have to
bargain like a grocer because
this is a merchant culture and
finally you have to realize that
this is a very rough neighbor-
hood where people play by
their own rules and their own
rules are no rules."
Friedman sees the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict as getting
worse. "I think it's heading in
a very bad direction because
the intifada began, I think,
with the Palestinians saying
that what we're going to try to
do is make life miserable for
the Israelis and that was the
whole meaning of going on
strike, not working in Israel,
throwing bottles, throwing
stones, generally engaging in
what would be called relatively
non-lethal civil disobediance.
Since then, however, instead
of making life miserable for
the Israelis, Palestinians have
been making life dangerous for
them and that has been a
world of difference and natu-
rally provoked anger and out-
rage from the Israeli side. And
now this is just spiraling, each
one feeds on the other."

tion that "there will be no
solution that doesn't take into
account Israel's legitimate
security needs and there'll be
no solution that doesn't in
some way accommodate Pales-
tinian national aspirations."
Now that his book has been
published, Friedman is asked if
he is satisfied with his work.
"I'm at peace with myself,"
he concludes. "This is a contro-
versial book, but it's an honest
book. I said everything on my
mind, didn't pull any punches.

To the Editor:
A literary genius lives a
quiet life in Israel. She is Hen-
rietta Hannah Bodenheimer,
daughter of the late Max Isa-
dore Bodenheimer.
Bodenheimer was a lawyer,
judge and writer (1865-1940).
As a pioneer of Zionism, he
spread the word by forming a
number of organizations. He
was president of the Jewish
Colonial Trust and the Jewish
National Fund for years. His
idea formed when he wit-
nessed pogroms and atrocities
against the Jewish people. He
had a vision that Jews all over
the world would be respected
if they had their own state,
their own home. Later Theo-
dor Herzi came to him with a
similar proposal and they
worked diligently together.
Henrietta, his daughter,
born in 1892 in Cologne, Ger-
many, still writes about the

Max Isadore Bodenheimer
raised his voice for establish-
ing a Jewish State in Pales-
tine. He wrote, "With discus-
sion it won't be accomplished.
Only through work can a
Nation be free". His idea was
to encourage settlers to come
to the Land and then, with
hard work, to build the land
and defend themselves. It was
a hard task, but it was the
beginning. He did not know,
that after all these years,
Israel would still have to be on
the defense.
For 43 years, M. I. Boden-
heimer lived in Cologne, Ger-
many, where his idea took
form, which led to the estab-
lishment of the State of Israel.

Settle Soviet Jews In Israel, Dinitz Urges
Chicago Ambassador Sim-
cha Dinitz, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization
and of the Jewish Agency
Executive, told hundreds of
delegates to the
national Na'amat USA con-
vention here that American
Jewry "should immediately
place the absorption of 500,000
Jews from the Soviet Union in
the next five to 10 years at the
top of its priority agenda.
More than 40 Floridian Jew-
ish leaders are delegates to the
Chicago conference, which
ended Wednesday afternoon.
The conference was high-
lighted Tuesday by the elec-
tion of Harriet Green of Miami
Beach and Coral Gables as
national president of Na'amat
USA. Mrs. Green currently is
national vice president.
"With your help, the great
majority of this unprecedented
movement of not just a com-
munity but of a people should
and can be settled in Israel,"
the former chief Israeli envoy
to the United States said as
Na'amat USA opened its 31st
biennial convention at the Chi-
cago Hilton Hotel and Towers.
Simcha Dinitz
Dinitz said that more than
3,600 Jews from the Soviet
Union had arrived in Israel
during the first six months of
1989, "a 126 percent increase
over last year. I don't believe
in percentages, but in actual
numbers. By the end of this
year, the total will be nearly
8,000, and will double in 1990
and increase to at least 30,000
in 1991.
The leader of the World
Zionist movement said "If
these Jews come to Israel, we
know they will at least remain
Jews." He said the Israeli gov-
ernment and people will use
every resource available to
meet the joint needs of hous-
ing, employment and social
absorption for the biggest
wave of aliyah to the Jewish
state since the first three years
of Israel's statehood.
Dinitz said that Na'amat in
Israel which has more than
750,000 members there alone
must "take the lead in social
He said Israel is now making
real progress in motivating
Jews to go to Israel rather
than waiting for immigration
into the United States, and
that scores of the more than
11,000 Jews awaiting visas to
the United States in Europe
are opting for emigration to
Israel, including some who
alrady had obtained American
papers. "We in Israel do not
disagree with the idea that
Jews should be able to settle in
whatever country they choose,
but they should not wait for
the United States or any coun-
try to grant them refugee
status. The labelling of even a
single Jew today as a refugee
cannot be tolerated, because a
refugee is one without a home.

M. I. Bodenheimer was also

After Theodor Herzl's death,
his friend, David Wolfson

women to vote and was the

three children only one daugh-

heimer, in Jerusalem. She
made her life's work, "The

Israel's ambassador to the

1978, serving in the key post in
Washington during the 1973
Yom Kippur War and in the
Camp David negotiations
which resulted in Israel's 1979

Judaism and an understanding
of Israel.

W. Germans to Receive PLO
BONN (JTA) The West German government has

from the Palestine Liberation Organization, a top aide to
chancellor Helmut Kohl said.
The meeting is being planned for this autumn. The exact
dates and the members of the delegation are still under
The aide said that Bonn felt it could no longer indefinitely
delay the establishment of official contacts with the PLO.
"We are merely doing, very late, what others, including
the Americans, have done before," the aide said, referring
to the 8- month-old U.S. dialogue with the PLO.
The official also pointed out that European Community
leaders agreed at their recent summit meeting in Madrid
that the PLO should "participate" in the Middle East peace
process, as opposed to simply being "associated" with it, as
previous E.C. declarations had stated.
Pope's Remarks
Express Concern
NEW YORK (JTA) The Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has expressed "deep concern regarding the
implications" of remarks made by Pope John Paul II, which
ADL interprets as denying God's covenant with the Jews.
In a letter to the Vatican secretary for Jewish relations,
Rabbi David Rosen of the ADL's Jerusalem office said
anyone reading the pope's words "may fairly conclude
from them that God's covenant with the Jewish people is
superseded by the Christian covenant as the only everlast-
ing covenant."

Black Hebrews Lose Court Battle
JERUSALEM (JTA) The High Court of Justice has
rejected an appeal by members of the Black Hebrews sect,
asking that they be granted permission to work in Israel,
after the Interior Ministry denied them work permits.
The three justices ruled that it would be an "unaccepta-
ble situation" to force authorities to grant work permits to
people who are in the country illegally to begin with.
The Black Hebrews, who have settled primarily in the
southern city of Dimona, maintain that they have a right to
live in Israel legally.
The Chicago-based sect claims to be descended from one
of the lost tribes of Israel in Africa. Its members began
arriving in Israel in 1968. The High Court ruled in 1972
that the Black Hebrews are not Jews and cannot become
Israeli citizens under the Law of Return.
But Israeli authorities have had great difficulty deport-
ing them. Once in Israel, sect members renounce their U.S.
citizenship in order to prevent deportation.

Terrorist Wounds Kibbutz Volunteer
TEL AVIV (JTA) A 25-year-old Jew-
ish woman from the United States was
wounded Tuesday by a terrorist who
slipped over the border from Jordan and
infiltrated a kibbutz in the Negev.
The intruder, who was dressed in a
Jordanian Army uniform, also seized and
held hostage a 20-year-old woman, before
he was shot and killed by Israel Defense

The incident took place on Kibbutz
Lotan, located some 30 miles north of
Eilat, where Laurie Rosen of Englewood,
N.J., was working as a volunteer.
The errorist encountered Rosen shortly
before noon in the kibbutz date orchard
and fired his submachine gun at her from a
distance of about six yards. As he opened
fire, the assailant reportedly shouted in
English, "That's because of my brother."
Rosen, who was wounded lightly in the
shoulder muscle, was taken to Josephthal
Hospital in Eilat, where she was reported
in satisfactory condition.
A short while after the shooting, a
second woman, identified later as Osnat
Levy, was discovered to be missing. Kib-

This was the implementation
of phase two of the administra-

schools in the West Bank,
despite the ongoing intifada.
All schools in the West Bank
have been shut down through-
out the school year, except for
a few weeks in December and
January. Primary schools and
12th grade classes reopened in
mid-July and with the reopen-
ing of the junior high schools,
only 10th and 11th grade
classes are still closed.
The reopening of the junior
high schools reportedly went
smoothly, with no distur-
bances reported.

in the territories and East
Schools have been reopened
by the Israeli authorities, with
little interference from Pales-
tinian nationalists. More and
more Arab workers circum-
vent the frequent general
strike days by simply staying
overnight at their work places.
Many plants, such as a large
Jerusalem bakery, have rented
apartments for their workers,
so that they do not have to
return home daily.
Two factors seemed to have
brought about this change: the
sharp drop in the standard of
living caused by the frequent
strikes, and the fact that more
and more Jewish employers
are seeking to replace their
Arab workers with Jews, even
if they have to pay more.
Several prominent Palestini-
ans, most of whom refuse to
identify themselves, have con-
firmed recently that the inti-
fada is changing colors.
Daoud Kuttab, a Palestinian
journalist who did speak
openly to reporters Sunday,
said that the intifada has
reached a state in which people
are more interested in political
developments than in violence.
They watch with interest
developments like the current
convention of the Palestine
Liberation Organization's Al
Fatah faction in Tunis, and the
growing number of meetings
Palestinians are having with
American and Israelis.

Kuttab explained that the
reopening of the schools in the
West Bank went smoothly,
because "there was a decision
not to give the Israelis any
pretext to close the schools"
With the Fatah delegates
reportedly debating whether
to endorse a political course
charted by PLO leader Yasir

poll taken Aug. 2 and 3, soon
after Shiite Moslem terrorists
claimed to have killed U.S.
Marine Lt. Col. William Hig-

abduction of Shiite leader
Sheikh Abdul Karim Obeid.
Only 29 percent of the 711
adults polled said Israel is a
"reliable ally" of the United
States compared to 51 per-
cent who answered positively
to the same question in April.
This time, 53 percent said
Israel is not a reliable ally, and
19 percent had no opinion.
Some 51 percent of the
respondents also said they dis-
approved of Israel's decision to
seize Obeid, who was described
by poll-takers as a "Moslem
clergyman," rather than the
leader of a Shiite terrorist fac-
tion. Only 30 percent approved
of the action, and 19 percent
had no opinion.
By contrast, a Roper poll

found 44 percent of Americans

Still, Jewish leaders
acknowledge that the ABC
poll and another by Time
magazine and Cable News
Network saying 53 percent of
Americans believe Israel
"went too far" in "kidnapping
Sheikh Obeid" may have
accurately reflected feelings
early last week.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
The seven fruits of Israel: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegran-
ates, olives, dates.
"For the Lord thy God bringeth thee unto a good land... a land of
wheat and barley ... a land of olive-trees and honey"
(Deut. 8.7-8).
EKEV Moses declares: "And it shall come to pass, because ye
hearken to these ordinances, and keep, and do them, that the
Lord thy God shall keep with thee the covenant and the mercy
which He swore unto thy fathers, and He will love thee, and bless
thee, and multiply thee {Deuteronomy 7.12-13). The Israelites are
not to fear the Canaanite nations: witness the providence and
supervision of God over His people in the desert, though they
sinned. In passing, Moses makes a general reference to the
incident of the Golden Calf. The Israelites were not to inherit the
land of Canaan because of their own virtues: "Not for thy
righteousness, or for the uprightness of thy heart, dost thou go in
to possess their land; but for the wickedness of these nations the
Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that He
may establish the word which the Lord swore unto thy fathers"
(Deuteronomy 9.5). After mentioning God's powerful miracles in
Egypt and the desert (particularly in reference to Dathan and
Abiram), Moses dwells on the importance of the Promsed Land.
The portion continues with the second part of the Shema,
beginning "And it shall come to pass, if ye shall harken diligently
unto My commandments" and ending "that your days may be
multiplied, and the days of your children, upon the land which the
Lord swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of the
heavens above the earth" (Deuteronomy 11.13-21). And the
portion concludes with the promise: "There shall no man be able to
stand against you: the Lord your God shall lay the fear of you and
the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as He
hath spoken unto you" (Deuteronomy 11.25).
