Peres Looks To U.S. As Hope For Peace Dims

President Bush and Israeli
Vice Premier Shimon Peres
are to meet at the White
House in mid-September,
against a backdrop of fading
hopes for diplomatic progress
in the Israeli-Arab conflict and
a Palestinian uprising that is
claiming lives and limbs in a
relentless daily rhythm.
News of the impending
meeting was released here this
week, though in Washington, a
White House spokesman could
not confirm any such plans.
Peres' aides said the vice
premier and finance minister
would spend most of his trip
conferring with Jewish busi-
ness leaders and philanthrop-
ists, in the hope of launching a
$1 billion effort to absorb the
tens of thousands of emigrants
from the Soviet Union and
South America expected to
reach Israel during the next
few years.
The aides said that the U.S.
president, when informed of
Peres' visit, invited him for a
political conversation.
The aides do not expect any
dramatic developments to
come out of the talks. But they
said Peres, who heads the
Labor Party faction in the
national unity government,
would urge Bush to intensify
American involvement in the
quest for peace in the Middle
In a bind
Peres and his party find
themselves in a bind at this
time, according to Labor insid-
On the one hand, they vowed
to leave the government if its
peace plan ran aground. And
run aground it plainly has. The
United States has been unable
to persuade the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization to accept
the Israeli peace plan, and
contacts between leading local
Palestinians and Israeli lead-
ers have produced no tangible
progress either.
On the other hand, Labor is
reluctant to exile itself into
national opposition, especially
with the Histadrut trade union
federation elections coming up
in November. Labor faces a
stiff challenge from Likud,
whose stance on the peace
process is popular with large
sections of the electorate.
Uncompromising rhetoric
This is particularly the case
in the wake of the hard-line
statements issued by Al Fatah,
the largest faction of the PLO,
at the conclusion of its conven-
tion in Tunis earlier this
Although Fatah elected a
relatively moderate slate of
leaders, its rhetoric was rigidly
uncompromising and replete
with threats of violent action.

Israelis Kill Infiltrator, Bomb Targets In Lebanon
TEL AVIV (JTA) An Israel Defense
Force patrol killed a would-be infiltrator in
the southern Lebanon security zone Monday
night, and much earlier in the day, Israeli air
force jets blasted a terrorist target in the
Bekaa Valley of eastern Lebanon.
The infiltration incident occurred south of
Ramiye village in the security
zone, less than a mile from the
Israeli border facing Kibbutz
An IDF patrol opened fire on
three infiltrators, killing one of
them. The other two escaped in
thick underbrush.
The gang is believed to have
been on its way to attack targets
in Israel. The dead man carried a
Kalachnikov assault rifle and
grenades. He was wearing a flak
jacket, jeans and sneakers.
Earlier Monday, in a rare, pre-
dawn air raid, Israeli jets struck a
base of the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine-General
Command, a terrorist group
headed by Ahmed Jabril.
It was located in Majdel Balihis
village, south of Lake Karoun in
the Bekaa Valley.
The air raid was the 11th this year on
targets in Lebanon and the third on installa-
tions of the Jabril group.
The terrorists said one of their men was
injured. But Lebanese sources said at least
four men were buried in the rubble of a
one-story building that served as the opera-

tions room.
Jabril's organization and Abu Nidal's Fatah
Revolutionary Council are reported to be
cooperating closely with Hezbollah, the Shiite
extremist Party of God.
Hezbollah's most recent operations have
been aimed at Israel, including
two Katyusha rocket attacks on
Upper Galilee last week that
damaged a building in Kiryat
Shmona but caused no casualties.
The Israeli air force retaliated
by striking a Hezbollah base in
Lebanon last week, reportedly
killing 11 of their men and injur-
ing 25.
In the Lebanese port city of
Tyre, the mainstream Shiite
Amal movement held a news con-
ference Tuesday to display a
truck loaded with 25 missiles
seized from Hezbollah, its chief
arrival in southern Lebanon.
Amal also displayed a number
of Katyusha rockets and
launchers it had seized recently.
The unusual display of materiel
was accompanied by an appeal to
all organizations to coordinate
their activities against Israel.

Israeli Mercenaries
The activities of Israeli "security consult-
ants" in Colombia and elsewhere raise
some troubling questions. Should Israel
allow its former officers to exploit their
military know-how for personal profit to
groups of dubious nature?
Israel has won four wars against the
Arabs thanks in large part to superior
weaponry and military strategy. To let this
technology slip into the hands of cocaine
barons or extremist groups is an outrage.
Those mercenaries who knowingly deal
with drug traffickers and terrorists are
undoubtedly a tiny minority, but their activ-
ities should not be allowed to besmirch the
image of Israel's fighting men and women.
Gratifying Response
The Auschwitz convent has become a
litmus test of sensitivity to Jewish con-
cerns. Poland's Cardinal Jozef Glemp has
failed miserably.
Glemp not only insulted Jews worldwide
by asserting that they have no special claim on
Auschwitz, but he also raised the old anti-
Semitic canard of Jews controlling the mass
Fortunately, Glemp's remarks have created
a backlash and there is growing support for
the relocation of the convent a commitment
made by the Catholic Church more than two
years stipulating that the Carmelite nuns
would be relocated by February 1989.
Plaudits to the three Roman Catholic cardin-
als who reiterated their position that the
agreement was a binding pact on the part of
both Catholic and Jewish signatories.
They also repudiated statements by their
Polish colleagues who based their reneging on
the open protests of Jewish organizations and
individuals, statements which reeked of classi-
cal anti-semitism.
Their action clearly places the ball in the
court of Pope John Paul XXIII, himself a
former Polish cardinal.
Silence clearly will be interpreted by
Catholic and Jew alike as acquiesence to the
decision to leave the convent and its large
cross adjacent to what has become one of the
central reminders of the Holocaust and the
genocide of Polish Jewry.
A firm and prompt renunciation of his
successor in Warsaw will continue the pro-
gress in Catholic-Jewish relations which the
pontiff says he desires. The whole world is

The Graying Of The Jewish Community
Demographically diverse,
geographically mobile and per-
sonally active and productive
are some of the characteristics
that describe the fastest-
growing segment of the Amer-
ican Jewish community: the
new Jewish elderly.
Unlike the generations of
elderly preceding them, the
Jewish elderly of today and
tomorrow are likely to be
American-born, highly edu-
cated and retired from profes-
sional or managerial occupa-
tions. And also unlike their
largely Orthodox forebears,
most of them list their own
religious affiliation and iden-
tity as Conservative or
In light of these develop-
ments, many of today's elderly
are confronting new and com-
plex challenges within their
extended families: forging new
relationships with non-Jewish
sons- and daughters-in-law and
In many ways, the Jewish
elderly are a reflection of cur-
rent trends in the Jewish com-
munity in general and in Jew-
ish families in particular.
Increased longevity and
lower birth rates underscore
the prediction that the elderly
will increase from 12 percent
of the American Jewish popu-
lation in 1975 to 17 percent by
the year 2000.
This growth, which will take
place mostly among those 75
years or older, is greater even
than the proportional growth
of elderly predicted for the
U.S. population at large
from 9.8 percent to 11.9 per-
cent for the same period.
There are other significant
differences between Jewish
and non-Jewish elderly in
America, differences height-
ened by the fact that more
Jewish elderly tend to be con-
centrated in the middle and
upper middle classes.
There is some evidence, for
example, to suggest that Jew-
ish elderly:

would lead to the perpetuation
of Israeli "occupation" of the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The Israeli plan, formulated
this spring by Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir of Likud and
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin of Labor, calls for Pales-

would begin three years there-

the many relief, educational

Hungarian Jews it was forced
to drop during the Stalinist
There was a festive air, an

expressions of good will from
ranking Hungarian govern-

Loud applause and a chorus
of "Mazel Tovs" sounded as
community leaders affixed a
large mezuzah to the doorpost.
In the gaily decorated func-

center, JDC President Sylvia

new Budapest office is JDC's
first in Eastern Europe in

"This is a community which
has enjoyed a rich past." Has-

walls. "I hope from this day
forth, their lives will be rich
again," she said.

It became active in Hungary
again in the early 1980s, but
without official recognition or
a permanent representative.
"I was asked what our aim
was in Hungary," Hassenfeld
said. "It is the inscription on
the parchment inside the
mezuzah. It is written, 'Teach
our children the precepts of
our faith.'
"That was a communal
responsibility accepted by the
Joint at its inception 75 years
ago. We hope to continue with
the community that precept

Nazi Extradition Upheld
NEW YORK (JTA) The Argentine federal Court of
Appeals last week upheld the extradition of accused Nazi
war criminal Josef Schwammberger to West Germany,
which wants to try him for crimes against humanity.
Schwammberger, who is believed responsible for the
deaths of at least 5,000 Jews, would be the first Nazi war
criminal to be extradited from Argentina.
But he is expected to appeal the decision in the Argentine
Supreme Court, which could delay extradition four months
to two years.
In Bonn, West German Justice Minister Hans Engelhard
welcomed the Argentine court's decision. He said West
German prosecutors would seek the maximum sentence,
life imprisonment, if Schwammberger stands trial.
Officials of American Jewish groups, however, are
worried that such proceedings may be a long time away. It
has been 16 years since West Germany issued a warrant for
Schwammberger's arrest and more than two years since
the former Austrian Nazi was arrested by Argentine

the controversial Carmelite
convent at Auschwitz have
deeply angered and offended
Glemp, the highest-ranking
Catholic official in Poland,
accused Jews last month of
threatening Polish sovereignty
and using their alleged influ-
ence in the mass media to
spread anti-Polish sentiments.
He also called for the agree-
ment between Polish and Jew-
ish leaders for the relocation of
the convent to be renegoti-
ated, claiming that those who
drew up the 1987 agreement
were "incompetent."
Glemp had been set to arrive
in Chicago on Sept. 21. He also
had planned to visit Cleveland,
Detroit, Milwaukee, Boston
and Washington. The cancella-
tion of his visit was announced
last Saturday by the Polish
press agency.
Displeasure known
Jewish groups in several of
these cities made their displea-
sure with Glemp clear to the
local Catholic establishment,
and declined invitations to par-
ticipate in interfaith activities
that Glemp was to take part in.
In view of the strained
atmosphere, canceling the
visit "was a wise decision,"
said Rabbi James Rudin, direc-
tor of interreligious affairs for
the American Jewish Commit-
Rudin said that if Glemp had
arrived in the United States on
Sept. 21 as scheduled, his pres-
ence would have "exacerbated
tensions between Catholics
and Jews."
Anne Pollard Recommended For Furlough
Henderson Pollard has been
granted a furlough from prison
over the High Holy Days and a
transfer to a halfway house in
late November, pending the
approval of her warden at the
Danbury Federal Prison Camp
in Connecticut.
Pollard, the wife of con-
victed spy Jonathan Pollard,
was told of the recommenda-
tion for the furlough and half-
way house Wednesday.

The ten-week course will be
held at Kigali's Park, 731 SW

by Allan J. Copeland, local
teacher. The series will run
every Tuesday afternoon from
1 to 4 from Oct. 3 to Dec. 5.
The course will be based on
the book by Dr. J. Dan Duke of
Appalachian Univ. under
whom Copeland, a licensed
teacher, studied. For info or

On the same day, she was
denied early release on parole
by Daniel Lopez, the North-
east regional parole commis-
The parole denial came in
spite of more than 200 tele-
grams and letters sent to
Lopez's office by Henderson
Pollard's supporters, asking
that he reverse the recommen-
dation of a parole board, which
ruled Aug. 22 that she should
not be granted early release.
Lopez's decision means that
she will most likely not be
finally released on parole until
March 1990, three years after
she began serving her five-
year sentence.
Pollard was convicted for
possession of classified docu-
ments in connection with her
husband's espionage activities.
He is serving a life sentence
for spying for Israel.

He added the visit's cancella-
tion reflected that Jewish
offense over Glemp's remarks
was recognized by the Catholic
hierarchy. "Clearly, I think,
they heard our concerns,"
Rudin said.
Rabbi Avraham Weiss called
the cancellation "a victory for
the forces of decency."
But Weiss, who is religious
leader of the Hebrew Institute
of Riverdale in the Bronx, said
he still intends to sue Glemp
for libel.
Weiss charges that he was
defamed when Glemp implied
that he and six other demon-
strators at the Auschwitz con-
vent on July 14 intended to
destroy the convent and kill
the nuns living there. Weiss
and his fellow protesters were
doused with water, beaten and
dragged from the convent
grounds by Polish workers.
Weiss has retained attorney
Alan Dershowitz to pursue the
matter through the Polish
courts and within the Catholic
Threat of libel suit
The Bronx rabbi asserted
that the threat of a libel law-
suit in the United States was a
factor in Glemp's decision not
to travel there.
Rabbi Mordechai Michel-
man, executive director of the
Synagogue Council of Amer-
ica, said that "a lot of unneces-
sary emotions and confronta-
tions will be avoided" by the
cancellation of the visit. "This
will give everyone a chance to
cool down and calm down."

and changes in the Social
Security system to encourage
incentives toward work.
Joan Fuld of the Council of
Jewish Federations asserts
that the elderly must be
brought as equal partners into
the planning process.
Jewish communal policies
and programs must take into
account the extent to which
the elderly prefer to have their
concerns and activities "main-
streamed" into the larger com-
munal agenda rather than
treated separately.
Also to be considered are the
appropriate roles to be played
by agencies, family members
and the elderly themselves in
implementing these policies
and programs.
While the new Jewish
elderly are concerned with
such issues as housing,
employment opportunities,
transportation, and retirement
and relocation counseling,
they would also like to have
these issues dealt with, to a
degree, in the context of spe-
cifically Jewish services and
Many, in line with the overall
contemporary emphasis on
"self-fulfillment" and creative
leisure activities, also show

Jewish learning.

Israel Saves On Power Bill
TEL AVIV (JTA) Daylight-saving time, which ends
Saturday, reduced the country's electric bill by $7 million
this summer, said Moshe Shahal, the minister of energy
and infrastructure.
Millions of dollars more were saved by industry during
the 127 days of extended daylight, according to Shahal. He
is campaigning to have the Knesset pass legislation
lengthening daylight-saving time to 210 days.
If that is done, daylight-saving time will be in effect in
Israel from the end of March to the end of September,
which coincides roughly with daylight-saving time in the
United States and Europe.
Jewish elderly was raised with
a strong sense of ethnic identi-
fication; the generation of
younger Jewish leaders and
professionals are increasingly
oriented towards religious
self-identity and expression.
This has already led to ten-
sion between service-providers
and clients over the degree of
"Jewishness" that should be
incorporated into Jewish ser-
vices and institutions.
For those elderly who have
had an upbringing rich in Jew-
ish tradition and learning,
however, it is clearly a major
force later in life, when the
ability to participate in ritual
and religious activity becomes
an important source of empow-
erment and self-esteem.

'Let My People Go'
But To Where ?
than 250,000 people gathered
on the national mall in Decem-
ber 1987 to rally for Soviet
Jewry under fluttering ban-
ners that read: "Let My Peo-
ple Go." Now that the Soviet
Union has begun to comply, a
new issue has emerged: Let
My People Go But to where?
Over 40,000 Soviet Jews are
expected to exit the Soviet
Union this year and nearly all
want to enter the United
States. This has produced an
emotional debate pitting Israel
against many American Jews
and leaving the U.S. govern-
ment uncomfortably in the
To Americans, it has always
been an article of faith that
those leaving the Soviet Union
should have "freedom of
choice" concerning where they
settle. During the past ten
years when only a handful of
Jews were allowed to trickle
out of the Soviet Union, the
belief was never tested. But
now that Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev has unleashed the
floodgates, U.S. policy is unde-
rgoing a major shift. And this
change slowly is altering the
attitutes of many American
When Congress returns
from its summer recess in Sep-
tember, the Bush administra-
tion is expected to propose
temporary changes in refugee
categories. U.S. officials say
the change is forced by budget
austerity and the reality that
there are only about 100,000
overall refugee slots to offer
worldwide each year.
Family Priorities
U.S. officials say the overall
number of Soviet Jews admit-
ted as refugees will remain the
same. But for six months, on
an experimental basis, priority
will be given to those with
family connections. The pro-
posal is winding its way
through the interagency
group, the Policy Coordinating
Committee for Soviet Refu-
gees, which is expected to
approve it soon.
"The opportunity (to come
to the United States) will con-
tinue to exist for a great many
people, but the totality of the
funds available places a budg-
etary limit on the number of
people who can come here,"
says Richard Schifter, the
State Department's assistant
secretary for Human Rights
and Humanitarian Affairs.
To many American Jews,
limiting the number of their
brethren who can enter as
refugees presents a painful
dilemma. They assert that
despite Mr. Gorbachev's
reformist rhetoric, today's
Soviet Jews are victims of
what Pamela Cohen, president
of the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jewry calls "cultural
genocide." She says limiting
the number of Jews who can
come here sends a signal to
Moscow that the UnitedStates
is satisfied with its treatment
of Jews.
Nevertheless, a new reality
gradually is forging a consene-
sus among many U.S. Jews. To
a growing number, the exist-
ence of Israel, which offers
immediate citizenship to all
emigrating Jews, eliminates
old fears of Jews having no
place to go. There also is an
awareness that neither the
federal government nor Amer-
ican Jewry can foot the bill
indefinitely for a vast wave of
immigrants. The United Jew-
ish Appeal's "Passage to Free-
dom" campaign to raise $75
million for resettling emi-
grants has been sluggish and,
privately, some Jewish leaders
complain that many Soviet
Jews who settle here soon lose
their ties to the organized Jew-
ish community.
Talk of 'fairness'
With the prospect that
unlimited Soviet Jewish immi-
gration could crowd out other
needy groups, talk about
"Freedom of Choice" is being
replaced by talk about "fair-
ness." Says Mark Talisman,
director of the Washington
office of the Council of Jewish
Federations: "It would be
unjust, and downright piggish
to expect 100 percent" of the
slots for refugees entering the
United States be allotted only
to Soviet Jews.
In a clear sign of the changes
underway, the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith last June became the
first major American Jewish
agency to urge the American
Jewish community to direct its
"priority and resources" tow-
ard resettlement of Soviet
Jews in Israel.
And a letter circulated this
summer in Congress and sent
by lawmakers to Mr. Gorba-
chev called on the Soviet
leader "to institute as quickly
as possible" steps to enhance
the prospects that Soviet Jews
who wish to leave will go
directly to Israel.
Although the changes still
produce some ambivalence in
the American Jewish commun-
ity, the shift in U.S. Jewish
attitudes that appears to be
underway pleases Israelis.
Many American Jews would
like to see the vast majority of
Soviet Jews settle in Isreal if
for no other reason than to
make the current problems go
away. "Almost everyone
believes that the ideal condi-
tion would be that all Soviet
Jews would wish to go to Israel
to settle," says Stanley Hor-
owitz, president of United
Jewish Appeal.
But what is shocking about
the current wave of Soviet
Jewish emigres is their stri-
dently anti-Israel feelings.
Most Soviet Jews leave Russia
with Israel visas and fly to
Vienna, Austria, the closest
destination in the West for
Aeroflot, the Soviet airline.
But in Vienna, more than 90
percent drop off and travel to
Rome, Italy, where there are
U.S. emmigration processing
Anti-Israel attidues
An earlier generation of
refusniks wore their Zionism
on their sleeves, enduring
years of deprivation to go to
the Promised Land. But in
Ladispoli, Italy, a Mediterran-
ean resort town outside Rome
where several thousand Soviet
Jews await processing, the
anti-Israel attitudes of the lat-
est generation of emigres are

WWII Vets Recall Fateful Day
By Ellen Ann Stein
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
August 22, 1944.
It was a good day for Ger-
man fighter planes. They
blasted American Air Force
planes and hit target with
many, showering Austrian
farmland with fragments of
burning metal. The men who
survived and parachuted to
safety were captured and
taken to German prison
August 22, 1989.
Two ex-fliers in the U.S. Air
Force and their wives met for
dinner at a Fort Lauderdale
restaurant. Joe Levine of
Deerfield Beach and Ken Col-
lins of North Miami Beach
were brought together by fate
on that day. And ever since
they rediscovered each other
in 1984 for the first time in
41 years they hold an annual
reunion to mark the day that
they both could have died.
"After all, it was a rebirth
for both of us," Levine recalls.
"We could have both been
dead that day."
Collins, now 65 and the
owner of a men's clothing
store in Bay Harbor Islands,
remembers the irony of the
military briefing he received
on August 22, 1944, when he
and 10 other soldiers boarded
a B-24 fighter and left Italy on
a mission to bomb an oil refin-
ery outside of Vienna.
The briefing for the day said
that the Germans didn't have
very much gasoline for their
airplanes, "so don't expect too
many fighter planes." Collins,
who was the crew's bombar-
dier, said German oil refineries
had been a key American tar-
Now Collins looks back and
says, "The Germans had con-
served their fuel and must
have had every available figh-
ter in the air that day."
Out Of Control
His plane was hit. It was on
fire and spinning out of con-
trol. Collins was next to a
navigator and said to him,
"After you." The navigator
told Collins, "No, you can go
first." So Collins jumped. As
soon as he did, the plane
exploded and Collins couldn't
tell whether anyone else had
made it out. All he saw was
"tin foil falling down."
He landed in a pasture in a
little Hungarian village out-
side the town of Papa. He was
slapped around and taken to a
police station for interroga-
Meanwhile, Levine, now 71
and a part-time insurance
salesman, had completed a
successful mission on August
22, 1944 and was returning to
his base aboard a B-17 fighter,
where he was a radio operator
and gunner. The next thing he
knew, his plane was shot.
Eight of the 10 crew members
managed to bail out before the
planed exploded and crashed.
Levine was also taken to a
police station for interroga-
tion. It was in a little village
outside Papa. First though, he
had been ordered to take the
charred remains of about 10
American soldiers to a cemet-
Only Survivor
Collins overheard Levine
talking about his grisly task
while they were both waiting
for interrogation. It turned out
the bodies Levine had to pitch
into graves were the bodies of
Collins' fellow crewmen. Col-
lins, it turned out, had been
the only man to survive from
his plane.
Collins and Levine had been
together for no more than 30
minutes when they were both
taken to separate prison
camps. For the next 41 years,
they would not see each other
The prison camp where Col-
lins spent the next eight
months was "no country
club," Collins recalls. Levine
had it even worse.
When the Russian troops
were approaching the prison
camp, the prisoners were
forced to move. Levine spent
the next few months sleeping
in barns when he was lucky,
but most of the time sleeping
on the snow in the bitter win-
ter months. There was hardly
any food, certainly no showers
and the prisoners were full of
lice. Levine survived. Some of
his companions did not.
Life continued for both men
when they eventually returned
to the United States and began
to build careers and families.
Then one morning four years
ago, Isadore Kaset of North
Miami Beach walked into Col-

recalls, started to kibbitz about
their war stories.
Kaset told Collins he had a
friend who also told him simi-
lar stories. And his name was
"Joe Levine!," Collins said
in shock.
Yes. But, could it be ... ?
Collins took out his business
card and wrote simply the
date: August 22, 1944. "The

Mime Troupe Takes Mideast Comedy On The Road

take is support for negotia-
tions and a Palestinian state
alongside the Jewish state of
Israel, a stance that is rous-
ingly driven home with the
refrain of the final song: "This
Is the Year of the Possibility."
The farce about mistaken
identity and conflicting claims
to Israel/Palestine takes two
lookalike American adoles-
cents a Jew and a Palestin-
ian (both energetically played
by Michael Sullivan) to the
West Bank, where they run
into Palestinians, kibbutzniks,
soldiers and settlers in a merry
romp of multiple identity
The show audiences around
the country will see has
evolved, due to the Mime
Troupe's practice of present-
ing works-in- progress, which
it changes according to audi-
ence reactions. And reactions
to its first play about the Mid-
dle East have been particu-
larly emotional and varied.
"A lot of people come to the
show and say, I wanted to
bring a friend but they
wouldn't come. It was too
painful,'" Holden reports.
Palestinian Americans, for
example, resented having the
Palestinian American family
shown as grocers rather than
doctors or professors, while
American Jews didn't like the
yuppie image of the American
Jewish family. Holden says
Berkeley radicals didn't like
the Berkeley radical character,
and some Jewish women were
offended by what they per-
ceived as Jewish American
Princess stereotypes.
In response to such criti-
cisms, the American Jewish
family was made a bit more
credible by changing the
mother's shopping bag from
Macy's to one holding grocer-
ies, and by making the father a
civil rights lawyer. But the
Palestinian Americans remain
grocers and the Palestinian
lead remains "an airhead," as
Palestinian writer Emily Shi-
hadeh describes him.
On the other hand, in
response to Palestinian com-
plaints that the Israeli soldiers
and police were too soft, those
characters now push the sus-
pects around more roughly.
Some reactions have sur-
prised the writers. Holden
describes, as an example, how
at the beginning of the play the
American Jewish mother talks
about her work as a psycholo-
gist: "... and she says, I
have three women who love
too much, four men who've
lost touch with their inner
child, and a transsexual look-
ing for the goddess within.' "
A transsexual took offense
at the line.
According to Jewish collabo-
rator Henri Picciotto, at least
one smoker has been offended
by a character in the airplane
scene who turns out to be a
terrorist for the "Smokers'
Liberation Army."
While the writers, who meet
with audiences after each
show, try to be responsive to
the sensitivities of various
groups, not every criticism
results in change. The trans-
sexual remark, for example,
remains intact, as do the ter-
rorist smoker and the Berke-
ley radical.
Seeing Double is, after all, a
comedy, Holden points out,
and stereotypes are the stuff
of comedy.
Stereotypes aside, the polit-
ics have presented other diffi-
culties, with both Jews and
Palestinians accusing the col-
laborators of favoring the
other side. But Holden
responds, frankly, that the
writers were not trying to pre-
sent a balanced view.
"The violence and oppres-
sion and suffering are not bal-
anced, and we don't say they
are," she says. "We don't say
there's no suffering on the
Jewish side, but their suffering
is mental. We don't pretend
there's a balance of suffering
but we've tried to be fair."
Instead, "our objective was
to make each side see the
other's side, in order to argue
for a compromise the two-
state solution."
In addition to the California
dates, beginning in October
Seeing Double will be pre-
sented in the Denver area,
three cities in Oregon, New
York and Washington, DC.
Tentative dates in November
also are scheduled for Toronto,
Detroit, Chicago and Boston.
There's also a chance that the
show will go to Israel next

money to Israel to help it
attract more Soviet emigres.
Need for promotion
Other U.S. Jews say it is
equally important for Israel to
"sell" itself to Soviet Jews.
Some small steps already have
been taken. In May, for
instance, the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee,
along with the Jewish Agency,
launched several programs at
the processing center in Ladi-
Meanwhile, the administra-
tion is preparing to offer its
new refugee proposal to Con-
gress. Earlier this year, Con-
gress approved bills mandat-
ing that all Soviet Jews auto-
matically be considered vic-
tims of persecution and hence
declared refugees.
But lawmakers are aware of
fiscal limitations and there is a
growing likelihood that Con-
gress may agree to the admin-
istration's new formula: that
all Soviet Jews may be refu-
gees, but the United States
alone can't receive all of them.
"If the Soviets allow direct
flights (to Israel), quit their
anti-Israel propaganda, allow
tourism to Israel by Soviet
Jews to grow, then Israel
could become an attractive
alternative," says Rep. How-
ard Berman, D-Calif. "Then,
as long as there still is a
significant flow of Jews to
America, I think the American
Jewish community is prepared
to strike a balance and recog-
nize the existence of some lim-
