Victim of Protter Tragedy
Back from Johannesburg
TEL AVIVI(JTA)An El Al plane that landed
before dawn at Ben Gurion Airport brought with it the
coffin of one of the victims of the Johannesburg Con-
sulate tragedysecurity officer Giora Raviv.
Because he was killed in the line of duty he was
given military honors. Raviv, 26, was one of four people
killed when David Protter seized the Israeli Consulate
General last week. During that time, the gunman also
wounded 32 pedestrians.
SHORTLY BEFORE the coffin was brought down,
Raviv's wife, who is pregnant, and his daughter, arrived
at the airport accompanied by Gen. Rehavam Zeevi and
Gad Dror, an El Al representative who happened to ar-
rive at the Consulate during the siege and was taken
It was reported that Dror engaged Protter in lengthy
conversations and reportedly persuaded the gunman to
release the children who were being held hostage and
later to release the other hostages.
Funeral services for Mr. Raviv were held at Mount
Herzl Cemetery where he was buried.
Campaign Ends With Shomrai Brunch At Hillcrest
With Lewis E. Cohn, cochair-
man of the 1975 Hollywood CJA-
IEF campaign, presiding, the
community fund-raising effort
in behalf of Israel and local
needs came to an end with a
Shomrai brunch at Hillcrest
Country Club on May 18.
"Just a year ago today," Mr.
Cohn told his audience of 250,
"we gathered together to cele-
brate the greatest fund-raising
efforts ever accomplished by the
Jews of South Broward.
"Yet our spirits were down-
cast, because we had just heard
about the tragedy of Ma'alot....
We silently took a vow that as
Jews we would do everything in
our power to insure the viable
existence of the State of Israel
so that those who died would
not have died in vain,
to give honor to those who
worked so. hard to help uphold
that vow, it is fitting to remem-
ber that those who died cannot
give any more of themselves,
but that we who are here must

recognizing all who had been
involved in the campaign, Mr.
Cohn singled out Federation
staff and described the way

Two Happy Events
In the bteral plethora of unhappy news that has
been emanating from die Middle East generally and Is- \
rael particularly, it is good to be able to observe on the ;
occurrence of at least two heart-warming events.
One is the signing of an economic accord between
the United States and Israel which will facilitate the
promotion of investments in Israel by U.S. companies.
Among other things, the accord deals with the
problem of double taxation that has been such a dis-
couraging factor for potential investors in the past
The other happy event was the agreement estab-
lishing the Israeli-European Economic Community,
which -strengthens economic ties between Israel and
Europe at a time when the European nations have been
less than kind in their disposition toward Israel because
of the threat of Arab oil sanctions constantly hanging
over their heads.
We are not suggesting that things are finally turn-
ing around for Israel. The matter of peace has hardly
even begun to be Touched.
But a year and a half after the Yom Kippur War,
the nations of the western community seem to be set-
tling down. They are no longer taking the emotional
position that Israel was at fault for a war the Israelis
did not launch. They are beginning to strengthen the
old ties they let slip so badly.
And so is Washington.
The SEC Should Act
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg is right that the Securities
and Exchange Commission should require companies
registered with the SEC to disclose whether or not they
comply with Arab boycott demands.
President Ford as early as February declared that
the kind of religious intolerance the Arab boycott is
fomenting in the United States can have no place here.
But the disquieting fact, as Rabbi Hertzberg and
the American Jewish Congress of which he is president
have demonstrated, is that too many U.S. corporations
are in fact complying.
The SEC can go a long way toward implementing
President Ford's meaningful declaration on the eve of
the American bicentennial celebration.

A Fascinating Story
The Ghorbal story has led a fascinating history.
It began with what is now an alleged interview in
Buenos Aires in which an Egyptian official is supposed
to have said that the aim of the Arab world is the de-
struction of Judaism not Israel Judaism.
It "ended" last week with our publication of a let-
ter to The Jewish Floridian from the Egyptian Embassy

a statement, or that the destruction of Judaism was the
aim of the Arab world.
Admittedly, the Egyptian letter to us was a strictly
formal piece of correspondence identical copies of
which, we are certain, were sent to newspapers across
But we find it fascinating that the Egyptian Em-
bassy should have been so exorcized by the JTA inter-
view and so earnestly determined to deny it.
We have run all sides of this story, beginning with
Jack Siegel's original report, continuing with Washing-
ton JTA Bureau Chief Joseph Polakoff s in-depth anal-
ysis of the bruha that followed Siegel's interview, and
now the Egyptian Embassy denial.
We hope it has proved fascinating for our readers,

Can America Escape History?
By MAX LERNER
Los Angeles Times Syndicate
"We cannot escape history,"
said Lincoln in a much-quoted
message to Congress. Anyone
watching the tug of war in the
United States today over for-
eign policy must wonder
whether America is to escape
history or whether history has
already eliminated America as
a commanding world power.
With the resignation or Pres-
ident Nguyen Van Thieu of
South Vietnam, the disastrous
American effort to prop up his
regime is at an end.
ADAPTING Graham Greene's
phrase from his novel, "Our
Man in Havana," Thieu was
"our man in Saigon." At various
times in various capitals the
United States has tried to sup-
port "our men" as a counter-
force to Soviet or Chinese Com-
munist-trained political figures.
This was part of a worldwide
political war, in which the Com-
munist leaders have had the ad-
vantage of ideology, charisma,
political legendry, guerrilla
skills, propaganda, cohesion and
shorter access to supply bases.
The ending of Thieu's tenure
of power, after a decade, also
marks the ending of a historic
phase in America's world posi-
tion and poses a great question
mark about what the next phase
IN SAYING farewell to Thieu,
is America also saving farewell
to the long-range political war
which has marked its history
since the last years of Franklin
Roosevelt, more than- 30 vears
ago? And therefore farewell to
No one knows the answer to
this question, because the an-
swer is being hammered out by
President Ford, Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, the con-
gressional leaders, the media
elites, the intellectual elites, the
TWO THINGS are clear to
start with. First, that whatever
"hegemony (De Gaulle's phrase)
America had in the years of
Truman, Eisenhower and Ken-
nedy is gone now.
But this doesn't mean that
America may not continue as a
"coequal" with the Soviet Union
and Communist China, none of
them dominant and all having
to accept the fact of a number
of other power centers in the
Second, ft Is clear that
America is saying farewell to
all future Vietnams, wherever
they may arise to beckon.
VIETNAM NOT only took its
toll of American lives and treas-
ure, as other wars have done,
but even worse it was the
most internally divisive war in
American history since the Civil
War. We say goodby to all that,
and a good riddance.
But to dismiss America's
false nonroles in the world still
leaves the question of what is
to be America's true world role.
Will America, having discard-
ed its adventures in imperial-
ism, still continue as a world
Poweran "imperium" or pow-
er mass? Or will it go the way
the British went when, after
World War n and Churchill,
they converted in effect from
a world power mass to a "little
England," with its classes and
parties quarreling over the di-
vision of an ever-smaller cut
of power and income pie?
THE WORLD warns to know
new mission to Washington and
the answer. The Israelis want
to know (witness Yigal Alton's
the speeches Moshe Dayan has
been delivering to student audi-
ences in California).
The Arab leaders want to
know (witness the prodding and
pushing, from Egypt, from
Syria, from the Arab oil nations
threatening a new oil bovcott
unless Israel accedes to Arab

Arabs Attend Right-Wing Feast
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) Lebanon's Ambassador, Na-
habi Kabbani, and a contingent of diplomats from the Egyp-
-tian Embassy were among a dozen or more Arab dignitaries
who rubbed elbows last Thursday night with extreme right-
wing Americans at an affair at which speakers attacked
Israel and the Jewish people.
The chief sponsor of the
dir.nar^meeting at the Army
a- i Navy Club Citizens for
American Survivalsaid in an
invitation reportedly mailed to
hundreds of persons, including
about 150 Congressmen, that it
would be a "no holds barred"
discussion of the Middle East
"NO LONGER can a self-
chosen establishment elite of
minority warmongers be allow-
ed to control successive admin-
istrations and systematically
destroy the U.S. republic and|
its economy," the invitation
About 200 showed up for din-
ner. Publications offered for
sale included the anonymous
"Myth of Six Millions," which
minimizes the Nazi Holocaust;
"The Payoff," which lists Con-
gressional members who have
addressed Jewish organizations;
a special edition of the Liberty
Lobby's "America First" publi-
cation, "Israel: Our Next Viet-
nam," and other tracts and
A FEW bought the publica-
tions. Advance expectations
that many retired military of-
ficers would attend did not ma-
terialize. Most of those present
appeared to be affiliated with
groups such as Lioerty Lobby
and their guests.
Homer Brett, Jr., a retired
Navy commander, introduced
the principals and leading
guests. When he came to the
half dozen Egyptians sitting as
a group, he identified them as
from the Egyptian Embassy and
apologized for not naming them
because the Embassy did not
have their names. He asked,
them to rise to applause.
BESIDES THE Lebanese en-
voy and the Egyptians, Brett in-
troduced among others, Richard
Egeak, president of the National
Association of Arab Americans;
Fairfax, Va. resident Lt.

of the Jewish War Veterans

? Ask Abe ?
by ABE HALPERN
UESTipN: AVhat do hands
on ii tombstone mean?
ANSWER: "The origin of the
tombstone may be traced to
primitive times when some form
of marker was used to designate
a grave. It may be that stones
were heaped on the graves to
keep evil spirits from doing
harm, or to protect corpses from
wild animals, but over a long
period of time markers came in-
to general use." (Gateway to
Judaism by Albert M. Shulman.
Vol. 1, p. 565).
A tombstone (Matzevah in
Hebrew, also used in the Yid-
dish,.Matzevot pi.) is mentioned
in the Bible as the Matzevah
which Jacob set up over the
grave of Rachel. "Over he-
grave Jacob set up a pillar^ t
is the pillar at Rachel's grave
to this day." (Gen. 35:20). The
word in the Hebrew text is Mat-
Since the primary purpose of
the tombstone was to serve as
a marker, the early tombstones
were inscribed only with the
name of the deceased and the
date of birth and death.
It is believed that an addi-
tional purpose seems to have
been a desire to indicate the po-
sition of a grave, in order to
obviate the fear of a Priest
(Kohen) becoming ritually un-
clean by being in its vicinity.
Later on, about the first
century before the common era,
epitaphs began to appear. Many
tombstones were inscribed with
biblical verses, abbreviations of
Hebrew sentences, sentimental
messages and short eulogies.
In addition, tombstones began
to be decorated with symbols
and emblems. A regular art
form ensued with emphasis on
"Some of the common sym-
bols used on the Jewish tomb-
stones continued to appear in
most Jewish communities. These
we're the hands of the priest in
an attitude of blessing. This
marked the grave of a kohen,
while an ewer and basin or a
musical instrument marked the
grave of a levite.
"In Bohemia and Poland they
still used occupational symbols
such as chains on the grave of
a goldsmith, parchment with a
goosefeather on the grave of a
Torah scribe, an open book or
a row of books with engraved
titles on the grave of a learned
rabbi or author.
"Apart from this, there were
also animal, bird or fish motifs
representing the name of the--
deceased, such as a lion on the
grave of a man named Leib, a
deer on the grave of a man
named Hirsch, a bird in memory
of Jonah (dove), and a fish on
the tombstone of Fischel." (En-
cyclopaedia Judaica, Vol. 15. p.
1224) (Emphasis mine, A.B.H.)

It is interesting to note that
the Hebrew dictionaries trans-
late the word Matzevah as mon-
ument or tombstone. Alexander
H. Harkavy (1863-1939), noted
lexicographer, translates the
Yiddish word Matzevah as tomb-
stone. Yet the Hebrew word
Matzevah is translated in the
modern Jewish Publication So-
ciety of the Torah, published in

The Council of Jewish federations and Welfare
|s has long been studying this problem. Its demo-

65 years of age. This would make a total of more
1700,000 Jews, a large proportion of whom are
FEDERATIONS IN cities where private profit-
Bg Jewish nursing homes exist recognize their
five years ago there were about 80 Jewish
for the aged maintained by Federations in
various cities. There were about 2o,o7!ore'sidents in
these institutions, 65 per cent of whom were over
the age of 80. '
SINCE THEN, the number of Federation-main-
tained institutions for the aged has increased, and
so did the number of residents. But this is not enough
to meet the needs of the growing number of elderly
Jews who must be taken care of.
New methods of care for such Jews have there-
fore been introduced recently in a number of com-
nunities by the local Federations. Considering care
for the elderly as of top priority among local obliga-
tions, leaders in these communities have formed
Councils for Jewish Elderly, or Community Councils
on the Aging, with a broad range of services.
A good example of what can be done for elderjy
Jews in need is the comprehensive program now de-
veloped by the recently-established Council for Jew-
ish Elderly, in Chicago. -
LEADERS OF this new Jewish communal agency
consider homes for the aged and nursing homes es-
sential to the total care for some Jewish aged, but
only in situations where such care is appropriate,
and never a total answer to the problems of aging.
In the course of one year, the Council has given
service to more than 5,000 different older people in
a target community which is estimated to have about
7,000 aged Jews.

"THE ZIRDS of Granada," by Andrew
Handler (University of Miami Press, $10, 224
pp.) is an account of the North African Zird
princes who ruled Moslem Spain in the 11th
century. It was during this period that Jews
rose to the high office of vizier.
The author is a professor of history at the
University of Miami. He reports that Granada
was known as "the City of the Jews" and
"Granada of the Jews." The book's principal
theme is the Moslem rule, but interspersed
throughout it are the interactions between the
Moslems and Jews.
WHILE THERE was only one real pogrom
during the reign of the Zirds, the animosity
against the Jews spread from Granada to Jaen.
The Naghrallas, Isma'il and his son, Yusuf, both
noted Jews, played important roles in this little

of the Hebrew University, writes: "Anyone who

THE EGYPTIAN woman journalist, Sana
Hassan, was asked about Arab hatred of Is-
raelis during a public dialogue which she and
the Israeli, Amos Elon, conducted before nu-
merous audiences in the United States.
In a new book "Between Enemies," which
expands on that dialogue, she replies: "Anti-
Semitism is only a kind of war-time racism in
the Arab world. It's the kind that Allied propa-
ganda generated about the Germans in World
War II, and the Americans about the Japanese,
to mobilize popular emotion at home. It is in-
tense and vicious. I don't deny that, but it's not"

well known, and occasional bursts of re&ction
after a terrorist atrocity are highly volatile.

Freddy Oberland, Montreal, that Victor Silberman, contro-
versial wrestler who "jumped" to Canada recently, will be re-
turning to Israel to complete arrangements for his training pro-
gram prior to the 1976 Olympics.
Apparently there was quite a mix-up, in the whole set of
affairs and as matters stand here at this point, it appears that
Silberman is on the way back and all is well ami he is forgiven.
He can still continue his training program as well as for his
THE ISRAELIS were quite upset o"er his sudden departure
since it appears extremely likely that Silberman is a good choice
for Israel's first Olympic medal in international competition at
that level. Consequently, the papers here played up his de-
parture to extreme lengths. .
The Israel National Basketball Team, now in the States,
started off its invasion with an easy victory in Rochester, New
York over St. John Fisher, 86-73. If the two-week tour, which
will see the boys playing a total of eight gamess, ends up 4-4,
the Israelis will have done quite well since competition this year,
as compared to last year's opposition, is much tougher. With
such teams as Houston, United States Naval Academy, Villinova
and Siena on the schedule, it is hard to envision a clean sweep
for the National team.
PRIOR TO departing for the States the Israeli squad played
an exhibition game against the Israel Sabras, a professional
team, in the European Professional Basketball League, in the
Yad Eliyahu Stadium.
Some 5,000 screaming fans looked on as the pros handled
the Nationals with comparative ease, once they solved the zone
defense Coach Hemmo imposed. At one time the Sabras lead by
close to 30 points but Coach Herb Brown of the home pros kept
his second team in for the greater part of the second half.
The final score showed a difference of 21 points. .
THE SABRAS started their season very slowly in Israel,
mainly because they opened on the road and were knocked off
in their first four games. Once they got home to Tel Aviv they
began to play the ball they are capable of displaying and quickly
began to overshadow the opposition. At the latest standing the
Sabras were second in the league two and one half games be-
Switzerland is third. Germany is fourth and the Spanish
five is at the bottom of the heap. All five clubs are employing
professionals from the NBA and ABA, players who are either
on the way up or the way down.
THE TYPE of basketball Israelis are seeing was described
by one writer as "basketball out of this world." By comparison
to the amateur brand of ball that exists in Europe and the Middle
East, the professionals are much quicker and have better skills
so that the difference in habits is discernable to those who un-
derstand basketball there.
As a matter of fact, two few of the writers covering the
basketball beat have seen enough top flite ball to appreciate the
execution of the Sabras and their opponents in the games which
have been played in Israel thus far.
IT WILL take quite a while for professional basketball to
catch on here, but once it does it can take off since, basically,
the people here enjoy the game.
In addition, due to the late start of the Sabras it was diffi-
cult to coordinate the schedule of the professionals with that of
the amiteurs so that at one point here recently in a period of
ten days some wine names were played.-. Obviously, no city, in-
cluding New York, can afford to support each game heavily so
that, unfortunately, all parties involved suffered to some extent.
Reports from California reaching back here indicate that
