Vance Gives Views on the Mideast
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Secretary of State Cyrus R.
Vance said that "The parties will
determine whether there will be a
Palestinian state" in the Middle
East, that the situation there has
"improved from what it was nine
months or a year ago," but that
the favorable conditions may be
destroyed if no progress is made
toward peace this year.
Vance expressed those views in
a special interview with the
Associated Press and United
Press International. The Secre-
tary began a six-nation tour of
the Middle East Feb. 15. He also
told the wire services that he has
severed the "linkage" between
human rights issues and other
matters between the U.S. and the
AT A PRESS briefing later,
State Department spokesman
Frederick Z. Brown was asked by
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency if
Vance's remarks meant that the
Administration opposes such
laws as the Jackson-Vanik
amendment to the U.S. Trade
Act and the Stevenson Export-
Import Bank legislation which
link Soviet emigration and
human rights practices with U.S.
trade and economic benefits.
Brown said Vance had thought
about it and indicated that the
Secretary will address that
matter at an appropriate time
with the Soviet Union. Vance is
going to Moscow to discuss
bilateral issues late in March.
Brown said the State Depart-
ment would respond to the jTA's
question at a later date.
Vance was questioned closely
on Mideast issues by the wire
service reporters. He was asked,
"Must there be a Palestinian
state for there to be peace in the
Middle East?" He replied, "That
is up to the parties to decide" but
he did not identify the "parties."
He added, "I think it is necessary
if one is going to achieve a settle-
ment to recognize the legitimate
requirements of the Palestinian
people and I have said this many
ASKED IF those requirements
included statehood, Vance said
"That is up to them to decide
how that might be done." Asked
if "them" referred to the Pales-
tinians or the parties to the
conflict, Vance replied, "the
He said that "despite dif-
ficulties which exist" the Middle
East situation has "improved
from what it was nine months or
a year ago." But he added that if
progress is not made in 1977,
"other factors may arise which
may destroy the more favorable
conditions which currently
exist." Vance's remarks in that
connection differed from the more
blunt prognostication by UN
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim who said last week
that a Middle East war would
erupt in two years if progress
toward a settlement is not made
Ex-Nazi Druschke Tracked Down
VIENNA (JTA) Simon Wiesenthal, head of the Jewish
Documentation Center, announced that he has tracked down another
Nazi war criminal.
He said that former German SS officer Clement Druschke, 62,
who is now a tavern keeper in Heidelberg, West Germany, was
responsible for the shooting of 45 hostages in 1942 when he was head
of the Gestapo police in Jesenice, Yugoslavia. Druschke is also
believed responsible for having shot a 16-year-old Yugoslav boy just
before the end of the war. He sent several hundred Yugoslavs to
German concentration camps where most of them were killed,
Wiesenthal said German authorities have started an in-
Spain Nixes Israeli Fair Pavilion
TEL AVIV (JTA) Spain has notified Israel that an Israeli
pavilion will not be permitted at the agricultural exposition in
Saragossa at the end of March although Israeli companies will be
allowed to participate under their own names.
The Spanish action came as a surprise here since Israel was in-
vited to participate in the fair following the success of the Israeli
pavilion at an agricultural fair at Seville several months ago.
The Foreign Ministry has to deckle now whether to permit any
Israeli firms to participate in the Saragossa exposition. Israelis see the
withdrawal of the invitation to Israel as another example of the
Spanish government bowing to Arab pressure.
Boumedienne: Nab Temple Vandals
PARIS (JTA) Algerian President Houari Boumedienne said
that he has ordered police to track down with all available means the
vandals who desecrated and looted the Algiers synagogue last month
and bring them to trial. Boumedienne, who received Marcel Said,
president of the city's Jewish community, in a private audience, asked
him to convey to all community members his "sympathy at the loss
they suffered." He also told Said that Algeria's Jews will "always find
my door open."
Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the
synagogue break-in but none of the stolen objects, including silver
candlesticks and Torah scroll ornaments, have been recovered. The
police investigation is continuing.

/ Didn *t Convince
By MINDY KLEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
French Consul General
Gilbert Bochet denied here
last week that the
knuckled under to Arab oil
pressures or feared terrorist
reprisals if they did not re-
lease Abu Daoud, the PLO
terrorist suspected of
masterminding the 1972
Munich Olympic Massacre,
and further maintained
that the French laws of
extradition were applied
"correctly" in the case.
Bochet flew to Miami
from New Orleans
voluntarily to meet with area Jewish organization leaders in
what turned out to be not a new French statement on the case,
but a public relations gesture.
Mochet admitted that the controversy did cause "some em-
barrassment." and said he "would have hoped for something
better than that which took place."
THE FRENCH secret service detained Daoud in Paris in mid-
January and a French court released him four days later, before
extradition documents from West Germany or Israel were
prepared, despite a French law which allows 18 days for filing
exl radition requests.
Public opinion in general and Jewish opinion in particular
flared up against the French government for its action, hut the
government stood firm.
According to the Consul General the Daoud release was
judicial, nol political. Asked if France would have acted in the
same manner had those slain at Munich been Americans, he
replied, "Yes, most probably." adding that Daoud wasn't
released because the slain were Jewish men and women. There
was nothing anti Israel in the French action.
"THERE IS no legal case against him (Daoud I." Bochet said,
voicing (he official French position that there was no crime corn-
mil ted in France or against a French citizen and thus did not fall
under t he jurisdict ion of French law.
Bochel indicated that the angry response from the Florida
Jewish community had been large, lie received "100 letters of
protest from Florida." more than from any other state.
BUT. he said, "emotions are not the right way to settle a
problem or a situation."
Bochet expressed the view that the French government felt it
had been tried by the press,
"It was a very bad. very wrong thing that some articles could
be written in newspapers without the French position being
clearly known." he said.
BOCHET ALSO indicated that a Jewish travelers' boycott of
France as yet "doesn't affect the French economy." He added,
however, that many French Jews benefit directly from the
tourist trade and said that he felt they were the ones who would
lie hurt most by the boycott.
I've been pleased that our meeting has been a quiet one. It
gave us an opportunity lo express our views." Hornet said. He
did concede, however, that "I am sure I didn't convince

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum,
lational director of interreligious
iffairs of the American Jewish
Committee, has disclosed that
Israeli government authorities
will not permit a Danish film pro-
ducer to make a pornographic
film about Jesus in Israel.
Tanenbaum said that the
producer, Jens Jorgen Thorsen,
obviously attempting to cash in
on the current sickness of por-
nography, has prepared a film
script that blasphemously seeks
to portray Jesus as a drunkard, a
fornicator and homosexual."
TANENBAUM stated that
the promoters, who seek to
release the film about 'the love
jffairs of Christ," have announced
urith incredible arrogance that
He film will be blasphemous,
pornographic, sadistic/ "
Tanenbaum revealed that he
had made an immediate inquiry
of Israeli government authorities
in Jerusalem and had received
this official reply: "Mr. Thorsen
has not applied to enter Israel for
the purpose of filming, and
should he apply for such pur-
poses, he would be denied entry.
The government of Israel will not
allow any film to be made that
would be offensive to any

The Needs Are Great
Edward A. Dincin, a resident of Hallandale, sums up
the feelings of the editorial staff-
Let me. first of all. tell it like it is I'm here to per-
suade you to open your checkbooks and write checks
payable to the Combined Jewish Appeal. I can hear you
saying. "What, again?"
I know. I know, you're tired of hearing this old tiresome
'Give, give till it hurts'" song. You've heard it almost
every year since World War I. if not earlier. And there
seems no end to it. Every year fellows like me come to you
and ask you to give. Will there ever be an end to it. you
ask? Isn't there a "Bright prospect for peace in the Near
East? Isn't Saudi Arabia and even Syria and Egypt now
asking for a Geneva conference to make peace, permanent
peace with Israel? Isn't Russia at long last letting a few
Jews leave? Why then this old "Give" song again?
Well. I'm sorry to blow away your rosy dreams, ladies
and gentlemen, but there is no peace, and there is no
prospect for peace, at least in our own lifetime.
The Russians are letting out a trickle of Jews in order to
pacify American public opinion.
The Saudis, the Egyptians and Syrians say they are
willing to make peace, on their own terms! The Russian
bear has not discarded his sharp claws and his murderous
teeth, and they never did. And as for the Arabs, they too
have not changed their spots, and unlike an English
gentleman, their word is not their bond.
The late Mr. Nasser and the present. Mr. Sadat, have
shown time and again that their verbal assurances and
their signatures on written agreements are valid only as
long as it suits them: once it ceases to suit them, they'll
break them as non-gallantly as they would break a used
match. And they did it many times.
No. ladies and gentlemen, as long as there is a single
Jew in Russia, we must try our best to get him out.
because neither his life nor his Jewishness are safe. The
Israeli government is an open country where the refugees
come from not only Russia, but from Poland. Asia. Africa
and all the Arab countries. They all have to be clothed,
fed. housed, taught the language of the land, taught a
trade, or if they are professionals, they too must be rehab-
ilitated and trained They take care of their children and
BOme come with poor health and they too must be taken
care of. So you see, there is a great need for monies for all
above and more And we must help them to become again
free human beingk.
And the only way Israel can be safe is by keeping armed
to the teeth. And if Israel has to spend one-half to three-
quarters of her budget on armaments she needs help from
us in order to prosper her population and maintain her
civilization. The Israelis are already one of the heaviest
taxed people in the world.
And don't forget the ill wind that blows from Africa,
where black nationalism and racism are burning red hot
if history teaches us anything, it is that nationalism and
racism are father and mother of anti-Semitism this is
another nightmare that the government of Israel has to
think about and plan for, as if they didn't have enough to
worry about already.
No, ladies and gentlemen, the present is not rosy, and
the future is black. There is still no end to the suffering of
the Jewish people. We have friends in Europe and in
America, but when it comes to the crunch, we have only
ourselves to count on. No one will fight our real battles,
battles with rifles and bayonets. We must fight alone.
The Israeli people, thank God, realize it and are ready
and willing to defend themselves against great odds. They
count on us to help them, just as the Russian Jews count
on us to help them in their struggle to get out of their
country-prison. If we are proud of our Jewishness, of our
civilization, we cannot fail, we must not fail so ladies
and gentlemen, open your checkbooks and give to the 1977

outside, leaning against a lamp-
post, bee facing East to catch
the Miami Beach morning sun.
He looked so vulnerable, so com-
pletely intent on warming his
bones after a bitter winter junket,
that I was totally disarmed.
After all, my assignment was to
cover a hot-shot New York
reporter from The Times. So
much for P.R images.

telligent young man void of Big

HE MET with Anthony
DeVito, INS investigator, and
Dr. Charles Kremer, a New York
dentist who had fought a one-
man battle to bring charges
against alleged former Iron
Guard member Bishop Valerian
Trifa. He made one contact, then
another. What developed for
Blum were the makings of an all-
too-true adventure story and a
story too long for newspaper
articles. That is how Wanted!
The Search for Nazis In America
came to be.
Nearly four years, 700 inter-
views. Nazi files and meetings
with the alleged Nazis went into
the book that will soon become a
movie. (Frank Sinatra is con-
sidering the title role of DeVito.)
But Blum had more in mind
than just penning an adventure
story. He was angry. He still is
angry. For 25 years, he says,
people knew about Nazis in
America. And for the most part,
that knowledge did not matter to
people in high places.

Blum does not take his stand

he would consider "dangerous,"
but as an American who sees his
country's laws subverted. Once
laws, already on the books, are
upheld, Blum sees a pathway for
moral behavior. Simple justice is
what he envisions, this young
man of the post-war baby boom.
Not vengeance, just justice.
BLUM WORRIES that if
American justice is not done in
the courts of law, fringe groups
may use vigilante tactics in an
effort to solve the Nazi problem,
as did the JDL in Chicago
recently. "If America is to be
different than Europe, official
organizations should act, not the
fringe groups." It was a turning
point of pure irony when Blum
finally met accused Nazi Andrija
Artukovic on a California beach.
The old man, living securely in
America, did not realize that
Blum was a reporter. Artukovic,
thinking Blum was an extremist
who had come to kill him,
screamed. "He was trembling. I
couldn't hold him there. In
America, he has to fee; fringe
groups but not our government."
Irony? Criminal, official irony.

American conscience? He thinks

Immediately upon publication
of the above column I received a
call from Ezerial Felsher (MRS.
I. BYRON) nee Schwartz, who
told me that she is a direct
maternal descendant of Rabty
Yom Tov Lipmann ben Nathan
Subsequently I received some
additional information from Mrs.
Felsher not included in my an-
swer which I wish to share with
the readers of this column.
Mrs. Felsher told me a great
deal about Rabbi Yom Tov
Lipmann Heller from personal
family knowledge as well as from
numerous notes she has compiled
from various sources.
The family celebrated a sort of
Purim holiday on the first day of
the month of Adar.
Mrs. Felsher has
addition to Bibles and devotion
books, also volumes on homi-
letics and anthologies for days of
lamentation and days of
penitence. He also had two
scrolls, the M'gilath Esther for
Purim and the M'gilath Eiva
(Scroll of Suffering) by the scion
of the family, the illustrious
Rabbi Yom Tov Lipmann Heller,
commentator of the Mishna. The
second scroll was read on the
Tesofeth Yom Tov Purim, the
first of Adar."
Mrs. Felsher told me that while
the family celebrated this holiday
she does not remember the ob-
servance of the Fast.
Although Rabbi Yom Tov
Lipmann Heller is best known for
his commentary to the Mishna
known as Tosafot Yom Tov, he
wrote many other commentaries.
The M'gilath Eiva referred to by
Mr. Horwitz is one of his many

much the information given to
me by Mrs. Felsher. I always
appreciate the comments which I
receive and I welcome any
questions which the readers
might have to further clarify
some of the facts which are
contained in my answers.
Because Mrs. Sidney Lerner of

Jorge Kos hailed the contribution
made by the Jewish community
to the economic and cultural
development of Argentina since
the days of the Jewish coloniza-
tion movement organized by
Baron Maurice de Hirsch more
than 100 years ago.
Referring to Israel-Argentine
relations, the envoy noted that
Israel has reached the 20th place
in the list of countries which
trade with Argentina.
SINCE A meeting last year in
New York between the Foreign
Ministers of both countries, the
door has been open to greater co-
operation. Mutual committees for
promoting cultural and scientific
cooperation were agreed upon
and their convention is expected
soon, he said.
These committees will decide
on an exchange ot scientists and
scientific knowledge as well as an
exchange of cultural delegations.
Jorge Ros called on the many
Argentine Jews who have settled
in Israel to be good-will ambas-
sadors for Argentina and to act
as a bridge for closer cooperation
between the two countries.

Trying tO Fill the ReligioUS Gap- Declaration Commemorative Created
A Synagogue for Deaf-Mutes
By MINDY KLEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
William Cohn learned sign
language out of necessity.
Although he has perfectly normal
hearing and speech faculties,
both of his parents were deaf-
mutes. William learned quickly,
when he was hungry or thirsty, to
use his hands to communicate.
He learned how to speak after

translating in court litigation
involving deaf-mutes, working
with the Broward County Board
of Education and the Broward
County Association for the Deaf,
Putting his nearly fluent skills
to good use, he's presently affil-
iated with about a half-dozen deaf
organizations. "I'm so damn
busy now," he said.
His latest labor of love is not
working with an organization for
the deaf but starting one: a deaf
"I'm determined that there will
be a shut," he states, adding that
he was "shocked" at the absence
of such a facility in both Dade
and Broward Counties.
The deaf synagogue concept is
not novel. Many Jewish com-
munities in the United States
have one, including New York
City and Chicago.
Abe Cohen is a deaf-mute. He
lives in Margate and is over 70
years old. For 44 years Cohen
taught school for the deaf in
Providence, R.I. He's just com-
pleted a cross-country trip to
California and back in a camper.
Although Cohen was brought up
in an orphanage and was never
Bar Mitzvah, he did belong to a
congregation for the deaf in
Boston later on.
"The problem," said Cohen as
translated through Cohn, "is a
burning desire to observe Jewish
holidays, attend services during
the year and to partake in extra-
curricular activities. But we have
no place to go."
Many deaf-mutes do read lips,
but attending conventional
services poses problems because

The potential synagogue mem-
bers are not wealthy enough to
build and support a synagogue so

generosity of the Jewish com-
munity, according to Cohn.
Cohn is hopeful that a

the use of a room so they would
be accessible to both Dade and
Despite the inevitable prob-
lems, Cohn has visualized a

Because of their mutual bonds,

Eilat On The Red Sea
For more variation on the
theme, it's down south to Eilat,
the resort that has everything a
wintry heart yearns for. It's a
young playground drenched in
sunshine, blessed by one of the
most fantastic landscapes
contrived, by nature. Its white
houses nestle at the foot of
jagged mountain peaks, whose
colors change during the course
of the day from black to white to
mauve, blue, pink and purple. It
overlooks the bluest blue of the
Red Sea which blazes red at

The climate in this idyllic area
is always conducive to any ac-
tivity you may desire: sight-
seeing, swimming, skindiving,
tennis, boating or fishing, or just
plain relaxing on the beach or by
the pool of your hotel, or napping
in your room.
Its "Coral World" is the most
splendidly different resort area in
the Middle East so do add a visit
there on your itinerary for Israel.
It is an hour's flight from either
Jerusalem or Tel Aviv; about six
hours by land. If you are
traveling to Israel on a group
ticket, you can order flights to
Eilat at a special reduced rate,
"Add on Fare."
The latest addition to the
rapidly growing dynamic city of
Eilat is its newest attraction, the
underwater observatory and the
museum aquarium called "Coral
World." A spiral staircase of 42
iteps leads ,down to the ob-
lervatory, which stands 21 feet
oelow the surface of the water.
The observatory allows you to
see the vari-colored tropical fish
and coral in their natural setting.
The Mediterranean Beach
Back to the Mediterranean,
Netanya, 19 miles north of Tel
Aviv on the Sharon Plain, is one
of Israel's finest resorts. Sur-
rounded by citrus groves, with
historical sites in close proximity,
it is a popular romping ground
for international travelers who
are attracted by the year-round
availability of surf, sand and sun
the perfect center for pleasure
Perched on the edge of land-
scaped cliffs, Netanya's beautiful
seaside promenade offers breath-
taking views of sunlit seas and
one of the finest beaches in the
country. Well manicured gardens
frame wide plazas and many of
che town's finest hotels. Autumn
land spring are especially
pleasant, combining a warm
limate with fresh clean air. Just
before spring, when the groves
are still laden with their last
golden fruit, the delicate scent of
citrus permeates the air.
A Vacation Bargain
Israel is one of the most
inexpensive places to visit, ac-
cording to a recently published,
survey by the London Financial
After compiling reports from
its correspondents in 50 key cities
throughout the world, the news-
paper found that a good average
hotel in Tel Aviv charges $26 a
day with breakfast. Only 16 other
cities had lower rates for com-
parable accommodations the
cheapest being in New Delhi at
I $15.50 and the most expensive in
Moscow at $49.85.
Restaurants in Israel were
even more of a bargain according
to the price survey, the Times'
correspondents found that dinner
in Tel Aviv costs an average of
$4.65 per person.
Israel Zuriel, Israel com-
missioner for Tourism, North
America, pointed out that the
above figures are indicative of the
trices in other parts of the
:ountry; and with the attractive
winter air fare (starting at $572

New York), a leisurely vacation
in Israel could be had at a very
THERE IS NOTHING
THAT CAN BE SUBSTITUTED FOR
SEEING ISRAEL FOR YOURSELF"
Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel
"I don't believe that there is a better way
to express your feelings than to actually go
to Israel... .There is something special about
the Holy Land... .Those who go, come back
entirely different. They see something that
no words can describe."
So spoke Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister
of Israel, at the beginning of this Solidarity
Pilgrimage Year. Yet, what Rabin said is an
echo of what every person has felt who has
ever visited Israel. You know this.
If you don't you'll learn it at Pesach, when,
sitting at the Seder in Israel, every symbol
of this festival of freedom will take on
richness that almost aches.
You'll know the feeling when you join the
crowd and dance through the streets on
Purim or Independence Day.
You'll feel it on Shavuot, as the First
Fruits are paraded through the kibbutz
with so much bursting pride. And at the
Western Wall, where the ancient chanting
through the night seems to make centuries
You'll know what "no words can de-
scribe" when you walk through the streets
of Israel at Sukkot, and find yourself sur-
rounded by beautiful Sukkot booths in
every yard and on every balcony.
You'll feel it at Chanukah, at the candle
lighting ceremony atop Mount Zion.
But you don't need a celebration to share
these experiences- Because every day of
Solidarity Year is a celebration of your
partnership with Israel.
And once you go and feel these things for
the first time, as many times as you return
will never be enough.

Back Room Boys Rigging Isabel's election day
HAIFA At the beginning of this month the
members of the Labor Party went to their private
polling places to choose the 3,000 delegates to the party
convention to be held on Feb. 22. The calling of the
national elections came so suddenly that there was no
time for the convention delegates to declare their
stands either on issues or candidates. Yet the con-
vention will have to make the decisions which will guide
the party in the national poll on May 17.
At least that is what everybody thought until
recently. The party leadership has now decided that nol
the convention, but the 601 -member Central Committee,
to be named by the convention, will in turn make the
decision whether Rabin or Peres or Abba Eban or
perhaps someone else will head the party ticket.
THE BACK room boys had come to the conclusion
that if the nomination came to the floor of the con-
vention, Shimon Peres stands a better chance of
winning support. In the smaller confines of the com-
mittee, dominated by the old-line politicians, Rabin's
chances would be better. Besides, decision between
competing candidates had never before been taken by
an entire convention, by any party in Israel. It's the
party bosses who make the decision.
The arguments against letting the convention decide
may sound far-fetched to those in the U.S. and
elsewhere who are accustomed to this form of open
democratic action. Said Meir Zarmi, Secretary-General
of the party: "I would not want a con flirt'like that to
shake the convention, nor that the 3,000 delegates
should be subjected to that trauma. It is our task to
preserve the unity of the party." _
NEVERTHELESS in the long run, it is the con-
vention which is sovereign, and if there is any serious
desire to challenge the control of the vested party of-
ficials, the 3,000 delegates could well overturn the
decision just made and take into their own hands the
naming of the candidate. Since the Labor Party u
today saddled with an image of corruption, mactionand
bureaucratic control, it could very well be that a
revolution by the rank and file of the convention is just
what is needed to give the party a fresh appeal to the
electorate at large.
There are secondary considerations as j*tell that go
into the making of the decision. The left-wing Mapam,
which commanded eight seats in the last Knesset, has-.
threatened that it will sever its alliance with Labor if
Peres is named party leader. That argument may
dampen some of the enthusiasm for Rabin's opponent.
PRIME MINISTER Allon, who of course is on the
Rabin team, now proposes that Labor adopt a plank
which would give the new Government, whoever from
Labor heads it, a mandate to proceed with negotiations
with the Arab states in the matter of the West Bank
without returning to ask public opinion. A vote for
Labor in May would presumably give approval to the
party stand in advance.
i THE ISSUE of not admitting Jews as members of a number of
prestigious American social clubs has been relegated to a rear
position during the last 10 years by Jewish organizations standing
guard on equal rights for Jews. Some of the discriminating clubs
including university clubs have in the meantime begun to accept
Jews as members, while others are still stubbornly clinging to their
policy of keeping their doors closed to Jews. However, the issue as
such, lost much of its sharpness during the last decade.
NOW IT is coming back to the forefront. It has been brought
there by no other than the newly-appointed U.S. Atty. Gen. Griffin
Bell, who was recommended to this post a Cabinet post by
President Carter. He has now been confirmed by the Senate with a
75-21 vote. Mr. Bell, a prominent jurist and a long-time friend of
President Carter, has been a member of two exclusionary clubs in
his home-town Atlanta into which no Jew or Black is admitted.
National Jewish organizations are especially perturbed by the
fact that Mr. Bell declared that he is now giving up his membership
in these discriminating clubs only temporarily for as long as he is
in the government in Washington.
HE INDICATED that when he leaves his Washington post and
returns to Atlanta, he will resume his membership in the clubs. His
statement provoked a good deal of criticism on the part of
American Jewish leaders. They interpret it to mean that the new
Attorney General believes that social clubs have a right to practice
racial and religious discrimination.
It is the obligation of an Attorney General to protect all
American citizens against discrimination based on racial, religious
or ethnic origin prejudices.
Leaders of the American Jewish Committee, American Jewish
Congress, Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith therefore feel
uneasy about Mr. Bell's implied intention to rejoin the two dis-
criminating clubs in Atlanta when he returns to civilian life.
THEIR ONLY hope is that Mr. Bell will, during his service in
Washington, realize that racial and religious discrimination in
American clubs no longer reflects the American spirit. By their
unequal treatment of Jews, the discriminating clubs relegate the
Jews to unequal citizens.
The argument of those who oppose admission of Jews into their
clubs is usually that Jews have their own prestigious clubs like
the Harmonie Club in New York, the Standard Club in Chicago,
and similar clubs in other cities and that in these clubs there are
no non-Jews as members. Why should Jews be ambitious to be
accepted as members in non-Jewish clubs where they are not
wanted? they ask.
THE ANSWER is that non-Jews have no interest to become
members in Jewish social clubs; if they wanted, they would have
been admitted, despite the fact that the Jewish clubs carry an
The issue is not that Jews are not admitted in the exclusionary
clubs as individuals, but that the ban is practiced against Jews as a
civilization. The boards of the anti-Jewish clubs do not say "we
don't want this or the other individual Jew as a member."
What they say is "we don't want Jews in general." They place
the entire American Jewry in a different class than other American
THE DANGER of their policy directed against American Jews
lies in the fact that it subconsciously develops among many in-
fluential Americans members of these clubs the feeling that
"Jews are different."
It implants negative sentiments with regard to Jews even among
club members who are not anti-Semites. When prominent Jewish
personalities industrialists, philanthropists, jurists, high
government officials, people who made great contributions to
science, literature and art are a-priori not accepted, it un-
dermines their status in the eyes of the important non-Jewish club
members who have a great influence on American life.

Soviet Documentary Accuses
Activists of Zionist Conspiracy
A recent hour-long, nationwide
TV broadcast from Moscow
called "Traders of Souls,"
depicted Soviet Jewish activists
and refuseniks as "soldiers of
Zionism inside the Soviet
Union," and accused them of
being part of a "Western based
anti-Soviet conspiracy." The Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ) learned that the
"documentary" which dealt
heavily with the emigration of
Soviet Jews to Israel, took the
unprecedented step of naming
several activists and claiming
that they were involved in "sub-

Long-term refusenik Vladimir

has incited anti-Semitism among
"Zionism," Slepak pointed out,
"is being used as 'cosmo-
politanism' and was used during
the Stalin purge period in the
early 1950s." Activist Anatoly
Sharansky said: "There is always
anti-Semitism among people in
this country and as a Jew you
learn to sense it. but now it is at a
higher level than normal.
Everyone in buses and subways

The film is only one arm of thj
media recently utilized by Soviet
authorities. The latest issue of
the illustrated magazine
Ogonyok asserts that Adolf
Eichmann, the Nazi SS officer in
charge of rounding up Jews
during World War II. was kid-
napped by Israelis in Argentina
in 1960 to prevent him from
divulging pre-World War II
plans with the Zionists to set up a
pro-Nazi Zionist state.
Four Soviet Jewish activists,
Iosif Begun, Yuli Kosharovsky,
in addition to Slepak and
Sharansky, have filed a suit
charging insult against the tele-
vision network. A former Soviet
Jewish broadcaster told newsmen
in Rome of a second film called
"Secrets and Other Things,"
which suggests that the Jews
tried to kill Lenin, supported
Hitler's rise to power and juxta-
posed scenes of deprivation with
pictures of prominent Jews.
