plan a continuation of the "popu-

expelled from Arab countries.

DERSHOwTTZ, a prominent
defense attorney, rejected the
notion that Israel must choose
between its Jewish character and
democratic values. "Zionism is a
great challenge to keep both, he
said. "Rabbi Kahane seeks a false
dichotomy." Calling himself
neither a total secularist nor a
total diabehever in a theocratic
state, the civil rights advocate
expressed support for a modified
synagogue-state separation that
takes into account Israel s
Jewish nature.
Dershowitz warned that if
Kabane's plan for the expulsion
of Arabs from Israel is imple-
mented, Jews not fitting the
rabbi's "particular definition of

be expelled. He called for terri-

for peace along the lines of the
AUon Plan. He urged aliya and
intensified efforta to free Soviet,

means of ensuring a Jewish ma-
jority in Israel.
In an exchange on the recently
uncovered Jewish terrorist
underground on the West Bank,
DershowiU expressed grave
doubts that the "alleged
terrorists" would be able to
receive a fair trial in Israel, but
also expressed his "great
respect" for the Israeli judicial
system. "If their acts are proved,
I deplore them," he asserted.
DENOUNCING those who
take the law into their own
hands, he predicted that such
actions would "absolutely gua-
rantee" escalated "holy war"
against the Jews. He called
Jewish terrorism a "denigration
of the Israeli armed forces," and
stated that a "mature state"
must reject the doctrine of collec-

An Open Letter To The Jewish
Community of Pinellas County
Dear Friends:
With this letter, we open our 1985 Federation Combined
Jewish Appeal Campaign. It MUST be the best drive ever
conducted by the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County.
Why MUST Because we are dealing with human needs at
home and abroad that MUST be met through Jewish philan-
I have just returned from Israel and 1 can tell you that for the
people of Israel, peace remains elusive. Security considerations
are placing a heavy financial burden on the Jewish homeland at
the expense of social welfare programs. Shortfalls in previous
campaigns have forced vital programs and services to be cur-
tailed or discontinued, a situation compounded by Israel's
steadily climbing inflation, now over 900 percent.
The dream we share with the people of Israel MUST be
fulfilled. But we also have an obligation to those Jews living
under oppression and harassment in the Soviet Union, Ethiopia
and other totalitarian countries. This must be a Jewish com-
Here at home, for the first time since the Great Depression,
there are significant numbers of Jews who find themselves
unemployed, the products of continuing economic strain and
diminishing government funding for social services. It is our
Jewish responsibility to meet the ever-increasing local needs.
We are responsible to the aged and to the young; to the
enrichment of Jewish education and to low income households;
to the troubled and the sick; and youngsters in need.
Therefore, we are asking for total community support to
provide for all the things that our parents, our grandparents and
our heritage committed ua to do. We can no longer ask the other
person to pick up our share. In commitment, we MUST all be

Would you know where to go if

agendas whkh provide a large
array of vital social services in
Pinellas County.

and speak with these agendas
and their directors. Included will
be trips to the Jewish Day
School, the St. Petersburg

are trained in areas of self-
medfcasJon, money management
and job skills so that they may
remain independent citizens of
the community.

Ninety-five percent of us will
probably be in the "Shoulda"
club again this year. "I shoulda"
done this or "I shoulda done
that" to cut the tax bill. Over the
next few weeks I'm going to
suggest a few ideas in the area of
philanthropic tax planning that
might just help you get out of the

of Real Estate Can Save Taxes
Now and Create a Fund for
Future Charitable Giving.
Let's assume you own some
investment property you bought
a few years ago for $20,000 that
has appreciated to $100,000. You
need a tax deduction this year.'A
gift of a 50 percent interest in the
land to TOP will give you a
$50,000 write off in 1984 which
may save you as much as $25,000
in taxes. In addition you pay no
capital gain tax on the transfer of
the land to TOP.
A fund can be created in your
name or in the name of someone
else you may wish to honor.
When the land is eventually sold,
your fund in the TOP Foundation
will have $50,000 in cash which
will be invested in the TOP in-
vestment pool to the credit of
your fund. Both principal and

'Actual Malice 'Seen
'Time' Makes Much of Secret Appendix
continued here this week in
the trial involving Israel's
former Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon and Time
magazine in which Sharon
is demanding a $50 million
judgment against Time for
having defamed him in one
of its analyses of the Sabra
and Shatila massacres
during Israel's incursion
into Lebanon.
In the same federal court
building here. Gen. William
Westmoreland pursues his own
libel suit against CBS Television
for $125 million in which West-
moreland charges that CBS aired
a report on Westmoreland's
conduct during the Vietnam War
in which it alleged that West-
moreland deliberately covered up
the facts about American
casualty figures and the strength
of North Vietnam's forces.
THE JURY in the Sharon case
is composed of four men and two
women. None of them is Jewish.
But presiding Judge Abraham
Sofaer is, and there are Jewish
lawyers on both sides. Last week,
Judge Sofaer denied Time's
opening motion to dismiss the
The magazine declared
that the case should not be
adjudicated in an American court
because Sharon is an Israeli and
because it involves what Time's
attorneys called "acts of state."
But Judge Sofaer ruled that Time
does not have absolute immunity
under the First Amendment for
statements about official conduct
of high government officers.
Furthermore, Sofaer ruled that
there was enough evidence to
suggest "actual malice" for the
case to go to an American jury.
AT ISSUE is the Time cover
story of February 21,1983, which
reported that Sharon discussed
vengeance with Lebanese
Christian Phalangists against
Palestinians for the assassination
of Lebanese President-elect
Bashir Gemayel on September
According to Time, it had
"learned" that a similar con-
clusion was reached in a secret
appendix to the Israel Gover-
nment Commission's report after
having investigated the
massacres of Palestinians by
Christian forces at Sabra and
Shatila refugee camps near
Beirut in September. 1982,
following the Gemayel assassi-
nation. Israeli forces were in
control of the area at the time.
In an impassioned plea Sharon
told the court that Time had
accused him of mass murder,
which he said any Jew would
regard as a "blood libel" against
Israel and the Jewish people. His
suit against Time, he said, was
"for the honor and pride of the
Jewish people and the State of
TIME CALLED Sharon's suit
"an attempt by a foreign pol-
itician to justify his conduct of a
war by his state and to enhance
his political reputation," the
magazine's lawyers adding that
Sharon is "libel proof," since his
reputation was so poor that he
suffered no damage in any case.
The Time story was partly
based on reporting by David
Halevy. an Israeli correspondent
and citizen, whose information
largely came from three con-
fidential sources. Halevy has
refused to reveal their names.
Time's lawyers complained
that they had attempted to take
depositions from a number of
Israeli officials they believed to
be familiar with the Sabra and
Shatila information that would
corroborate the magazine's
reporting of the massacre. But,
they said, the Israeli govern-
ment, while granting diplomatic
immunity to two of their
potential witnesses, cautioned
others that they might be subject
to prosecution for violation of the
country's security laws.
IN OTHER sessions this week,
Sharon told the court that the
Time story reporting the Sabra
and Shatila massacre was a
"terrible lie." Sharon demanded
to know "What can cause more
damage than when someone is
accused of urging and discussing
the need to kill and murder
civilian people?"

Washington 3 is one of several
new programs developed by
national Jewish organizations for
college students within the past
few years. These activities, in-
cluding conferences organized by
the American Zionist Youth
Foundation, AIPAC and the
United Jewish Appeal, provide
an opportunity for participants
to increase their knowledge of
Judaism and contemporary Jew-
ish issues, and to develop their
skills as campus leaders. Univer-
sity of Florida Hillel Director
Gerald Friedman says that
students return from these
programs "excited and informed,
and with a sense of the broader
Jewish community. They then
translate their enthusiasm into
programs which involve many
more students than we could
reach otherwise."

His face flushed, he asked re-
peatedly, looking at the crowded
courtroom: "What can be more
damaging? .What can be more
Time's attorney, Thomas Barr,
told the court that the mag-
azine's information came from a
secret appendix to a 108-page
report summarizing the findings
of the Israeli inquiry commission
an appendix that has never
been made public.
ACCORDING to the Time
story. Sharon is alleged to have
told Amin Gemayel, Bashir's
brother and now Lebanon's pres-
ident, that he "understood" the
need that the Gemayel family
might feel to avenge Bashir's
death. The story implies that the
Gemayels took this is a green
light to enter Sabra and Shatila
and launch the massacre.
Milton Gould. Sharon's attor-
ney, repeatedly asked Sharon:
"Did you discuss the need for the
Phalangists to take revenge for
Bashir's death?"
"No," replied Sharon.
"Not one word?" Gould asked.
"Not one word," Sharon
replied flatly.
"DID THEY Sheikh Pierre
(father of Amin and Bashir, who
has since died) say anything to
you about revenge?"
"No," Sharon said.
"Did anyone at any time say
anything at all about a need for
revenge?" Gould continued.
"No." said Sharon. "Not
revenge, not retaliation, nor any
other word similar to that,"
Sharon replied.
Querying Sharon on Appendix
B, which Time insists it learned
about through its Jerusalem A
respondent, Halevy, r.tI
wanted to know: "Is there, 1
thing in Appendix B thatj
tarns details of your visit wkk3
Gemayels?" "*\
"No," answered Sharon J
explained that he had' rij
Appendix B at least three time*]
"Is there anything at all abt
a visit or a conversation with |
Gemayels and about their
for revenge in Appendix B?"

Evening Dec. 21 at 8:00 in the
wmple sanctuary. Rabbi Arthur
Jaseman, spiritual leader of this
I'dirm Temple will be launching
program of inscribing names
nto a Torah that will be dedi-
cated in the spring. This Torah
vas lovingly protected and saved
om the Holocaust in Poland.
Chanukah is a holiday that
commemorates religious freedom,
the miracle of light, and dedi-
cation. It begins at sundown Dec.
18 with the lighting of the first
candle, and continues with the
addition of one more candle each
evening until there are eight
candles burning in the Chanukah
lenorah. Special prayers are
cited, songs and games,
presents, and latkea (potato pan-
nes) are all part of the holiday
Celebration. It is therefore an ap-
propriate time to begin our Torah
nscriptions linking names of
"ved ones, living and departed.
Vhen we link flame to flame we
oduce light; when we link name
name we can augment the
oncept of eternal life. Our
thoughts at this time also turn to
Soviet Jews who are denied
the privilege of freedom to wor-
hip as they wiah.
