Former U.S. Supreme Court
Justice Arthur Goldberg believes
Israel had a "legal right*' under
international law to bomb Iraq's
nuclear plant and that its June 7
air raid therefore was a "justified
act of self-defense."
Goldberg, who also served as
U.S. Ambassador to the United
Nations in the late 60s, offered
his opinion in a letter to Prime
Minister Menachem Begin that
was released here. "I have no
doubt about Israel's right to
bomb Iraq's nuclear installations
in light of the given cir-
cumstances under traditional
principles of international law
and generally accepted concepts
of what actions constitute self-
defense between belligerents,"
Goldberg wrote.
HE NOTED in that connection
that Iraq and Israel were certain-
ly belligerents in international
law since "Iraq has consistently
proclaimed That it is in a state of
war with Israel." He pointed out
further that "Iraq, contrary to
relevant resolutions of the United
Nations, has refused to renounce
belligerency against Israel and to
conclude a peace treaty" to
accept Security Council
resolutions 242 and 338.
Israel has expressed willing-
ness to make peace in accordance
with those resolutions, he said.
According to Goldberg, "In
light of the fact that Iraq deems
itself to be at war with Israel, the
State of Israel under established
rules of international law has the
right to take military action, in-
cluding bombing, against in-
stallations in Iraq which
, potentially may assist Iraq in its
proclaimed warlike designs."

Members of the Pinellas
County Jewish Community, in
cooperation with the United
Jewish Appeal and other Florida
communities, are going to Israel
on a highly coveted community
mission. "This is not a tour to the
Islands," said Reva Kent, Presi-
dent of the Federation. "A com-
munity mission is an experience
far beyond the wildest imagina-
tion of any few days away from
it all', which is common in our
yearly agenda. To go on a
mission is to utilize the expertise
accumulated over the 5,000 years
of Jewish history, which is af-
forded the mission participants
and not the average tourists."
Why is a Federation-UJA
Mission different from all other
trips to Israel: The difference is
in what you get ... on all other
trips to Israel you go as a tourist.
You may accumulate souvenirs
and miles of film showing win-
ding city alleys and desert vistas
dotted with camels. In the final
analysis, maybe you had a better
vacation last year when you went
to the islands. Next year you may
go to Scandinavia .
The Federation-UJA Mission
experience will give you much
more: discovery, revelation, a
sense of self. It is an opportunity
to see for yourself what has been
accomplished by the Jewish
people when their energy and re-
sources are used fully and
creatively. It is an opportunity to
touch not cold stones, but warm
hearts ... an opportunity to
encounter the reality of life in
Israel today.
From the momant you meet
your Mission grougat the airport
until yao bid .so* "!'hit-ra-ot"
(until w^*fcs'again), you will
sense common purpose and
growing identity and you will
carry your own heightened con-
sciousness with you for the rest
of your life.
"Won't I see the important

places of interest the 'must-
sees' that have attracted millions
of visitors to Israel?"
Sure, you'll be able to compare
notes with your friends who may
have "done" Israel, but you'll
have a lot more to share with
them than lists of landmarks and
restaurants. You're going to
witness a modern democratic
national function. Your perspec-
tive will be through the eyes of its
citizens and its top leaders in
government, industry, education,
the arts, sciences, social welfare
agencies. When you stand on the
Mount of Olives and witness the
panorama of Jerusalem spread at
your feet, you will see in your
mind's eye Israeli children in new
schools, Russian immigrants
being welcomed at absorption
centers and Jews from every
corner of the globe merged into a
magical unity, informed by a
sense of home, which you will
share. You'll return renewed and
inspired as a human being and as
a Jew. And your presence will be
enlightenment to every fellow
Jew in your community
Can Be Added
So that mission participants
can experience at first-hand
Jewish life in other lands and
explore how Federation-UJA
funds through the JDC are
being used outside of Israel, we
will offer sub-mission study
programs as an adjunct to our
study missions. These groups all
are accompanied by a resou <-o
person with expertise in the
country being visited. They add a
valuable dimension to the total
mission experience.
Already scheduled: October 5-
11 Poland. Linking up in
Israel with our Study Mission
No. 1 (October 11-21), this group
will have the rare experience of
observing Yom Kippur with the
remnant of the Jewish communi-
ty of Warsaw, as well as visiting
Auschwitz and Cracow.

utive Director, Jewish Federa-

At the closing dinner, the UJA
conferred its first Louis A. Pin-
cus Jewish Statesmanship
Award, established in memory of
the former Chairman of the
Jewish Agency, on Max M.
Fisher. Chairman of the Agency's
Board of Governors for the past
decade. Fisher, the only Ameri-

Fisher were Ephraim Evron,
Israel's Ambassador to the U.S.,
and Richard Allen, Chairman of
the National Security Council,
who read a congratulatory
message from President Reagan.
In his remarks, Allen described
the friendship between Israel and
the U.S. as "unshakable."
Evron, while making a brief,
passing reference to differences
with the new administration over
specific current issues, affirmed
the deep bond between the two
countries. Addressing the crisis
surrounding developments in
Lebanon, he declared that Israel
would "exhaust every diplomatic

East was a major issue of concern
at other events throughout the
meeting, including briefings at

Lantos, the only member of
Congress who is a Holocaust
survivor, revealed that bis reso-
lution to confer honorary U.S.
citizenship on Raoul Wallenberg
has received overwhelming
support in both houses and is
expected to be passed shortly.
One of 100,000 Hungarian Jews
who were saved by Wallenberg's
heroic actions in the late stages of
World War II, Lantos asserted
that "conclusive proof now exists
to support the belief that Wallen-
berg is still alive in the Gulag

Here are a few selected items of
Klan-Nazi incidents from around

White. 37, was sentenced to eight
years in prison for conspiring to
bomb a local synagogue in 1978.

begun serving a 10-year federal
prison term for violation of his
probation by possessing a fire-
arm. Federal authorities found
him pictured, weapon in hand, in
photographs taken by reporters

camp near Cullman. Ala., last
fall. Before he was jailed. Riccio
was arrested at his home on an
animal cruelty for shooting a
neighbor's pet beagle with a bow
and arrow. The dog was para-
lyzed and had to be destroyed.
Riccio was the grand chaplain of
the Invisible Empire. He was
well-known for his inflammatory
rhetoric at Klan rallies, where he
repeatedly used phrases like "ape
niggers" and "Jew communists."

process carried out by a jomt
UJA-CJF Task Force. UJA
National Vice Chairman Robert
E. Loup of Denver, who heads
the Task Force, reported that its
members will conduct consults
tions with the leadership of some
80 federations throughout the
spring and summer months to
help develop campaigns with
goals reflecting each com-
munity's fundraising capacity,
rather than past performance. In
the Task Force's first year of
operation, Loup indicated. 48
communities accepted 1981 cam-
paign capacity goals averaging a
21 percent increase over the
previous year's total and all are
expected to meet them.
Martin E. Citrin of Detroit, the
1981 Task Force chairman, called
on community leadership to
maintain equity in the propor-
tionate allocation of campaign
proceeds between UJA-funded
overseas agencies and local bene-
ficiaries. In reaction to im-
pending cuts in federal funds for
local programs, he emphasized
communities must find ways and

Meeting participants heard in-
depth reports on overseas needs
from Akiva Lewinsky, treasurer
of the Jewish Agency, and Henry
Tsub, president of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee. Both were en
couraged by increased percentage
gains in the campaigns of the
past two years but indicated that
income derived from the cam-
paigns had not kept up with
rising costs.
Among the programs that
would be most affected by cam-
paign failure to meet trie totality
of need, Lewinsky asserted, are
resettlement centers in the Negev

withdrawn behind the new border
with Egypt next April. A drastic

Taub pointed to JDC's sue

contact with the Jews of Czecho-
slovakia as heartening gains, but
pointed out that food and

areas of Eastern Europe will have
to be decreased unless there is a

generated income this year.

well as countless other groups
which prepare residents for

In recent weeks we have suffered unseasonably warm
weather and a long period of drought. There can be no doubt
that the summer season is upon us. In the heat of the summer
we all tend to slow down. It is a time for rest and relaxation.
Communal activity lessens considerably and even the social
calendar becomes less congested.
It has been the same pattern in the Jewish Community as
well. We are at the end of our program year. While our syna-
gogues certainly do not close their doors, they just as certainly
cease the frantic pace of religious and social activities of the
rest of the year. Very few synagogues offer substantive pro-
gramming during the summer months. We have entered a kind
of summer hiatus in both our secular and religious lives. Not
until the High Holy Days in the fall will most people resume
their religious activities.
Judaism is not a seasonal religion. Jewish religious, moral
and ethical obligations do not take summer vacations. It is true
that we all require a break from our daily routines in order to
pause, to reflect and to recharge ourselves. So too, it is with our
Jewishness. As Jews we need time to consider and reflect upon
our religious course and to recharge our Jewish souls. Rather
than seeing in the summer time a chance to forget the syna-
gogue and religious obligations for awhile, it would behoove us
to use this calmer season as an opportunity for reflection upon
our levels of Jewish committment and activity. If, during these
few short summer months, we can find the time to take stock in
ourselves and to evaluate our levels of Jewish consciousness
then we can truly face the "new season" vitally recharged. May
we all have a happy, healthy and Jewishly productive summer.

I Word'sNotYetOut
From time to time, our Newsroom is treated to
the charade of a Novosti Press Agency report from
Moscow sent to us via the Soviet Unions Embassy
in Washington.
The most recent report sports a June 18 dateline
and purportedly documents the 'crime'* of Viktor
Brailovsky and his "systematic fabrication and
distribution of deliberately false materials casting
aspersions on the Soviet state and social system."
The ruling circles of the imperialist colonialist
Muscovites, sitting like depressive fat cats on their
West European Empire, crushing the democratic
aspirations of the oppressed working classes there,
know nothing about acceptable journalism.
For example, Novosti says of Brailovsky, after
documenting his trumped-up crime: "He is short,
stumpy and slightly fattish." In our view, this is a
perfect description of Leonid Brezhnev, but what has
it to do with Brailovsky and the fascist actions of the
Kremlin's masters against him?
Or. Novosti describes Brailovsky's work as "an
illegal (sic) typewritten collection" called "Jews in
the USSR," which it judges to be "derogatory .
and distorting Soviet realities."
Regarding Brailovsky s defense. Novosti
concludes: 'All petitions by the defendant were
satisfied, and he fully exercised his rights as the
accused and as counsel for the defense."
Bully. Also, bull.
We are in accord with a statement this week on
the arrest and sentencing of Brailovsky to five years
in internal exile by the South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry, which characterizes Brailovsky as "a
man who is guilty of no crime."
We echo the sentiments of the Conference's
conclusion that if the Soviet Government's purpose
is to rid Moscow of this "pariah," would it not be
better "to free him and issue the necessary visas to
him and to his family so they may join his father and
brother in Israel under the reunification-of-family
provisions of the Helsinki Accords?"
The trouble is, Novosti knows nothing of the
Helsinki Accords. The Kremlin's ruling circles have
not yet given them the word.
A Law of Physics
A basic law of physics declares that for every
action there is a reaction. The law works perfectly in
international affairs, too.
Take for example the hypocritical condemnation
of Israel by the United Nations for its Osirak opera-
tion. Duplicity and pragmatism prevailed there to
such a degree that the United States delegation
worked with the delegation of Iraq to word the state-
ment of condemnation in the face of the fact that
there are no relations between Washington and
Baghdad to speak of.
The net result?
The previously low-profile Muscovite stance in
its tilt with Poland has suddenly taken on menacing
proportions. The earlier brave declarations
emanating from Washington and North Atlantic
Treaty Organization headquarters in Europe that the
Russians had better watch their step in the matter of
an outright military invasion of Poland were
promptly assessed by the Kremlin to be what they
are words, and nothing more.
If the American and the European reaction to
the Osirak operation is a guideline of Western com-
mitment to truth, then reasoned the Communists,
why should the West be any different if once and for
all they crushed the Poles in their quest for genuine
home rule?
The laws of physics are somewhat older than the
laws of men. Certainly, they are far more consistent.
The Russian reaction to the United Nations action
portends even bleaker days ahead.

Habib s peace mission to the
Middle East is a redundancy.
I srael is already actively engaged
in getting the Syrians to remove
those missiles from Lebanon, and
nobody seems to recognize it.
least of all the Syrians them-
Israel has just acknowledged
that the Syrians shot down
another one of its pilotless air-
craft on a reconnaissance mission
over Lebanon. This makes at
least the fourth drone downed by
the Syrians since the crisis over
their surface-to-air missiles in
Lebanon first broke early in May.
Even if the number is correct,
and there is sufficient evidence
around these days to suggest
that there are more such downed
reconnaissance planes than Israel
admits to, the meaning is cleai
of an obvious Machiavellian
scheme plotted by the Israeli
high command that has managed
thus far to elude the Syrians. If
they knew its details, the Syrians
might be more cautious about
spilling their missiles so promis-
cuously on the air.
THE SCHEME is simple: one
Israeli drone for one Syrian mis-
sile, although Heaven knows that
the Syrians are most likely to
shoot more than one missile at
one drone before their gunners
can knock it out of the sky. In
fact, one Israeli drone may well
mean eight Syrian missiles or.
less optimistically, five, six or,
one can be sure they hope, at the
very least seven missiles.
The question, of course, is just
how long the Soviets, given their
shrewd capitalistic instincts, are
going to want to supply the
Syrians with such a dispropor-
tionately large number of super-
sophisticated, high-technology
missiles to shoot down such a
disproportionately small number
of five and-dime store model air-
planes. Relatively speaking.
But if the Machiavellian
purpose of the Israelis is not soon
laid bare, the country's generals
are counting on the fact that the
Syrians will elect to continue
shooting at the drones until they
have no more missiles left in Leb-
anon. (There is an unlimited
supply of drones, with school
children being given prizes in
contests to grind them out during
their recess hours in record
The effect of all of this will be
the same as if the Syrians had
\olunlarirv removed their Soviet-
supplied missiles from Lebanon
in the iirst place. Of course, the
success of the Israeli high
command scheme depends upon
just how fast it takes for the Rus-
sians to catch on. Until then, the
cry is: Philip Habib. keep on
truck in'.
IN APRIL, 1979, the Iraqi am-
bassador to Khartoum was
expelled for taking part in an
attempt to overthrow Sudanese
President Numeiri
But one would never know
this, judging by the vituperative
presentation of the Sudanese del-
egation before the Security
Council last week, in which
Sudan played the role of Iraq's
best friend, showing outrage at
those nasty Israelis for their
bombing of the Osirak reactor
outside of Baghdad.
In fact, all of the Third World
was in euphoria during the course
of that debate, having failed to be
equivalently exorcized since the
last time the United Nations
moved to condemn Israel for one
reason or another. Why they
should come even to the histri-
onic defense of Iraq is hard to un-
derstand. Generally speaking.
Iraq is a principal sponsor of
training camps, weapons supplies
and financial backing to radical
Palestinian groups and global
Marxist opposition movements.
more than once trembled at the
threat of Iraqi-Libyan "libera-
tion campaigns on their con-
tinent. Look at Chad. Ditto for
the Middle East. Look at Iran.
The fact is that Iraq has long
carried on a policy of terror and
assassination against political
rivals and enemies abroad as a
matter of its self-assumed belli-
gerent right to do so. In this, not
even the Europeans have been
spared. For example, in 1979 and
1980. a number of Iraqi diplo-
mats were arrested and expelled
from Western European capitals
after they were discovered to be
carrying bombs and assassina-
tion orders for Iraqi dissidents.
The plot against the Sudan's
President Numeiri dates from
that lime.
Iraq's President Saddam Hus-
sein ai-Takriti. in the forefront of
Iraqi strongarm politics since the
Ba'ath Party takeover there in
1968. is affectionately known by
his countrymen as the "Butcher
of Baghdad.''

terrorist gang operated by the
Ba'ath Party. Al-Thaura, the
party's official publication
praised the action and said it had
been launched on instructions
from President Hussein himself.
It is Hussein who never gives
up calling for the destruction of
the "Zionist entity" as
"usurper of the territory 0f
Palestine" and as a threat to the
Arab nation's future, sovereignty
and prospects" (Radio Baghdad
August 20. 19801.
When Iran attempted to bomb
the Osirak reactor in the fall of
1980, Hussein explained that
Iran really had nothing to worry
about on that score in its war
with Iraq: the reactor, he said,
was "not intended to be used
against Iran, but against the
Zionist enemy" (Al-Thaura
October 4. 1980).
YET THIS is that poor victim
of Zionist aggression that the
Security Council, including a hy-
pocritical Reagan Admin
istration. raced to condemn
in its anti-Israel resolution
last week. The Third World and
its Western puppets, euphoric in
the joy of their punitive en-
deavor, struck with a demand for
reparations from Israel a
blatant confession that even in
the presumably principled halls
of the United Nations, property
has greater value than humanity.
For example: It is okay to kill
children at Misgav Am: it is
verboten to kill a nuclear reactor
outside of Baghdad or
Given that Arab. African and
Western states all have their

Book Notes
Spring 1939. Badenheim, a
esort town is preparing for the
Rummer season. The story begins
.i a matter-of-fact way, gradually
evealing the menace that is en-
ulfing the town and its Jews.
The vacationers arrive in a
happy, anticipating mood, and at
[he insistence of the Sanitation
epartment cooperate in regis-
tration procedures. They accept
|t as routine government red
ape. but are impressed by the
large force of Sanitation
Apartment workers. There is a
adual progression of events of
ominous nature; posters are
Lt up about holiday plans for
[he Vistula and simultaneously, a
umor spreads about the depor-
ation of all the towns residents
i Poland.
Next, the swimming pool is
larred for use, the mail is discon-
tinued, and barricades are placed
|t the entrance to the town.
However, all these matters are
Jither misconstrued or ignored by
he guests, among whom are Dr.
fappenheim and his musicians,
iliirtm. the pharmacist, and his
|n-k wife, the elderly Dr. Fuss-
oldl. and his young wife,

pemselves so busy that they are
prdly aware of the dire fate that
to befall them. The guests
gorge themselves with delicacies
from the bakery, and some raid
the pharmacy for drugs which
they take indiscriminately. Time
marches on and as conditions
worsen more and more Jews
arrive, driven from other places,
which in no way helps the situa-
tion. Eventually there is a food
shortage, the buildings become
neglected, creepers cover the
windows, and the barreness of
fall approaches, with cold and
wind. The story builds to a
There is a gradual lessening of
civilities and social amenities,
which turns eventually in a total
collapse of civilized living. A dull
confusion on the part of the
guests results, which works itself
into a restlessness.
Finally, the signal is given to
leave, and they all walk out to-
gether through the fields, police-
men following, to the station.
There are no carriages there, but
as they congregate, an engine
emerges on the railroad platform
with four filthy freightcars. It
stops. "Get on" they are told,

The book is disturbing. It is a
serious work, but it does have
comic relief in the beginning.
There is a real message that we
must remember. Badenheim

About the Author: Aharon
Appelfeld was born in 1932 in
Czernovitz, Bukouina. His
mother was killed in the Holo-
caust and he was sent to
Transnistria to a labor camp at 8
years old. He escaped, and for the
next 3 years wandered alone in
the forest. He was picked up by
the Red Army in 1944, served in
the field kitchen in the Ukraine,
and then made his way to Italy.
In 1946 we went to Palestine.
Eventually, he married, had three
children, and served in the Israeli
Army. He is a professor of
Hebrew Literature at Ben Gurion
University in Beersheba, and
has written several novels, but
this is his first to be translated
into English.
Missiles No Threat to UsBegin
JERUSALEM Israel's Prime Minister Menachem
Begin may have yet another solution to the Syrian missile
crisis in Lebanon. Early this week, in his latest volatile
statement, Begin allowed as how Syria's missiles don't
pose a security threat to Israel after all, and that he may
just choose to back off from the confrontation that has
kept the two countries teetering on the brink of war since
mid-May. So far, no word as to whether he's helping spe-
cial U.S. envoy, Philip Habib, pack his bags for Habib's
second (and final?) flight home.

grant their rabbis the right to of-

achieve recognition in Israel by
pressing in such forms is not con-
sistent with the pattern that has
prevailed in Jewish life in the
past." _______
