Britain To Sell Arms
To Saudi Arabia
LONDON (JTA) The British and Saudi Arabian governments have
signed a memorandum of agreement for the sale by Britain of 132 warplanes to
the Saudi kingdom valued at $4.3 billion exclusive of the cost of spare parts and
support facilities.
Described by a-British spokesman as "our biggest arms deal ever," it was
angrily opposed by Israel but may have had the tacit blessings of the Reagan Ad-
ministration. The Saudis recently dropped plans to buy U.S. F-15 jet fighter-
bombers,apparently because a long drawn-out battle seemed inevitable between
the Administration and majorities m both houses of Congress which oppose U.S.
arms sales to Arab states technically at war with Israel.
The sales agreement was initialed here by the Defense Minister of Saudi
Arabia, Prince Sultan Iban Abdelazziz, and Britith Defense Secretary Michael
Heseltine. The deal is for 72 of the highly-rated Tornado jet fighters which are
built by a British-West German-Italian consortium, 30 PC-9 defense aircraft and
30 Hawk trainers. Sources here said the Saudis originally intended to buy only 48
Tornados but incresed their order after deciding not to seek the F-15s.

( <

The arms deal is without conditions, meaning that Britain did not
stipulate that the weapons must not be used agaisnt Israel.

Pipe Bombs Mar High Holiday
Jewish community groups
here have joined with the
mayor's office in offering
rewards totaling $20,000 for
the arrest and conviction of
the person or persons who
placed pipe bombs at a
synagogue, a rabbi's home and
a political party headquarters
on the first day of Rosh
The bombs were said to have
the intensity of hand grenades
and "could have killed so-
meone," according to a police
department spokesman.
The Jewish Comunity
Federation and Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council of
San Francisco, the Peninsula,
Marin and Sonoma Counties,
the American Jewish Con-
gress' Northern California
Division, and Mayor Dianne
Feinstein's office announced
the rewards recently. Each
organization and the mayor's
office put up $5,000.
"Stop the Jew Food Tax,"
"Death To All Zionist Jews"
and "Free the People" was
written on "pieces of paper
wrapped around the bombs,"
according to Inspector Tom
Dickson, the San Francisco
Police Department's liaison to
the Jewish community.
One bomb exploded Sept. 16
at about 12:15 a.m. at the
headquarters of the Humanist
Party in San Francisco's
Sunset District. Two party
workers escaped injury in the
blast, which blew out a door
and broke windows. The new
party claims about 10,000
members, but has no connec-
tion with the Jewish
The second bomb was
discovered at the Horowitz
Cultural Center at Congrega-
tion Beth Sholom in the city's
Richmond district about 8:30
a.m. by a custodian "who went
back around to the school and
saw the bomb on a ledge,"
Dickson said. The bomb at the
Center, located around the
corner from the synagogue's
main entrance, was discovered
nearly an hour after worship-
pers filled the sanctuary for
Rosh Hashanah services.
Police cleared a two-block
area near Congregation Beth
Sholom, which also included
the area near Congregation
Anshey Sfard, an Orthodox
congregation. Neither cars nor
pedestrians were allowed in
the area for nearly two hours.
Congregants walking to the
Orthodox Anshey Sfard were
rerouted around the block to
reach their synagogue.
The SFPD bomb squad
detonated the device, which
was surrounded by "the same
paper with the same words" as
the bomb that had exploded
earlier, Dickson said. "It was
the same type of bomb as the
other place, including the same
timing device."
The third was discovered
mid-afternoon at the home of
Rabbi Jacob Traub of Or-
thodox Congregation Adath
Israel in the city's Sunset
District, where a pipe bomb
was found in July. Traub's
next door neighbor alerted the
family to the suspicious-
looking pipe.

tacted Dickson, who said he

Reagan, Mubarak Hold Talks
The Reagan Administration is
still hopeful that direct
negotiations between Israel
and a Jordanian-Palestinian
delegation can begin before
the end of the year, a senior
Administration official said
The official made the state-
ment as he briefed reporters
on the one-hour meeting at the
White House between Egyp-
tian President Hosni Mubarak
and President Reagan at
which he indicated there has
been no change in the positions
of the United States or the
Arab countries. When it was
suggested at the end of the
briefing that the report just
given was "bleak," the official
replied, smiling, "The situa-
tion is not bleak."

r Kahane Prevented
* From Speaking at Rally
? TEL AVIV (JTA) Thousands of anti-Kach and anti-
r racist demonstrators packed the Wollin Square in Givatayim
near Tel Aviv recently to prevent Kach leader and Knesset
member Rabbi Meir Kahane from making his view heard.
Givatayim Mayor Yitzhak Yaron said: "We will respond to
Kahane's invitation to attend but we won't let him be heard."
Hours before the scheduled start of the Kach meeting the
7 square was packed with thousands of people, many of them car-
? rying whistles, hooters and rattles and clappers usually used on
r Purim to drown out the name of Haman during the reading of
* the Megillah.
Kahane tried to speak for about half an hour, but only a score
or so of his followers in the front row of the crowd could make
out his words because of the noise of heckling and the sound of
the noisemakers.
ed whether he agreed with
State Department officials
who had been saying that this
is the "year of opportunity"
for making progress toward a
peace settlement inthe Middle
East. "Everyday is an oppor-
tunity," the President replied.
The official said that
Mubarak wants to push the
momentum forward on the
peace process, and he "thinks
time is wasting" and "hopes
initiatives can be taken."
Mubarak "is anxious that the
process be given a push," the
official said. But while saying
that Mubarak has many ideas,
the official would not give any
details of how the Egyptian
President sees the process be-
ing pushed ahead.
However, the official noted
that Mubarak believes the U.S.
should talk to a joint
Jordanian-Palestinian delega-
tion and stressed that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion has given "implicit"
recognition of United Nations
Security Council Resolutions
242 and 338 in the agreement
signed with King Hussein Feb.
11. Mubarak said the PLO
would make this recognition
"explicit" during the
"dialogue" between the U.S.
and a joint delegation.
Reagan reiterated the U.S.
position that the U.S. is ready
no talk to the PLO once it ac-
cepts publicly the two UN
Resolutions and Israel's right
to exist. "We have asked very

Arens told reporters after the meeting that he had informed
the British envoy that Israel regards these moves as a radical
deviation from the common position taken by Western
democratic nations with respect to the Middle East.
He said he disagreed with the views expressed by
Western experts that the weapons sales would not affect the
military balance of power in the region. "I would be very surpris-
ed if anybody with knowledge of military technology and the
Mideast arms balance would make such a statement." Arens I

also visited Auschwitz and
Birkenau, where the most
heinous Holocaust crimes were
committed. "It's a shattering
experience when one comes to
grips with the reality of this
shameful period. A sense of
terror is all around you as your
mind wanders and you begin to
identify. There is also a sense
of rage and anger," Shulman
said. .
Asked if a visit to
Auschwitz/Birkenau helps an
American Jew relate to the
Holocaust, Shulman answered,
"There's no way one can ar-
rive at a better understanding
as to why something like that
occurred, but it does bring into
focus the realization that
human beings have the capaci-
ty to inflict on other human be-
ings the kind of misery and
torture that one touches in
Auschwitz and Birkenau."
The lugubrious atmosphere
in Poland was somewhat
mitigated during the group's
sojourn in Romania, where the

about 30,000.
Clarifying the commonly-
held assumption that Romania
is a "liberal" Warsaw Pact na-
tion, Shulman said, "The
Romanian regime is perhaps
the most repressive. The

complishments of Rabbi Moshe

Economic Recovery Has Begun
Israeli Foreign Minister Yit-

Presidents Club of the Israel
Bond Organization that
although there is a long way
toward an economic recovery
in Israel, the beginning of such
a recovery has already taken
Speaking at the luncheon
meeting at the Regency Hotel
here, the Foreign Minister and
Deputy Premier said that
Israel needs now to increase
exports and increase in-
vestments in its economy.
"For that we need the support
of the Jewish business com-
munity in the United States
and around the world. There
are signs that we are going to
get that help," Shamir said.
Recalling that he recently
completed a visit to Japan,
Shamir noted that the
Japanese business community
is extremely fearful of the
Arab boycott and therefore
has been withholding conduc-
ting business with' Israel. He
said that Israel is verv much
Foreign Minister Shamir
interested in developing
economic ties with Japan. He
called on American Jewish
businessmen who do business
with Japan to use their in-
fluence with Japanese, and
convince them to do business
with the Jewish state.
Turning to Israel's relations
with its neighbors, Shamir said
that Israel is interested in im-
proved relations with Egypt.
He said that there are dif-
ferences in the unity govern-
ment in Israel as to how to get
this improvement.
But he said the main pro-
blem in the Middle East is that
Israel still faces the Arabs'
denial of its existence. "We
still face terrorist activities,"
Shamir said, which is the
"outstanding expression of the
Arab refusal to accept Israel."
The Israeli Foreign Minister
blasted Britain and its
Premier, Margaret Thatcher,
for inviting two Palestine
Liberation Organization
leaders to visit London. "It is a
terrible blow to the peace pro-
cess in the Middle East, and an
appeasement of terrorism. We
hope no other Western coun-
try will behave likewise,"
Shamir said.
He praised the United
States' strong position against
terrorism. He said that despite
differences between the two
countries, the relationship bet-
ween Washington and
Jerusalem is very good, and
the cooperation on all levels
between the two governments
continues. "We are friends,"
he declared.
Polish Prime Minister and WJC

Jaruzelski of Poland told a
group of World Jewish Con-
gress officials here, at a
meeting held at his request,
that the Polish government
hoped Western Jewish com-
munities would reciprocate
with goodwill for efforts by
his government on behalf of
Jewish causes.

hour at the Polish Mission to the
United Nations with Edgar Bronf-
man, WJC president; Kalman

specifically to Polish government
efforts to restore the Jewish
pavilion at Auschwitz and the
abandoned Jewish cemeteries in
Poland. He also cited documenta-
tions sent ta the Museum of the
Diaspora in Tel Aviv.
Jaruzelski formally invited the
WJC officials to a meeting
scheduled in Warsaw in
December, for which the meeting
at the Polish Mission was a
preliminary event, to discuss
"outstanding issues."
Bronfman, responding general-
ly for the WJC delegation, said
that improved relations between
the Polish regime and the
Western Jewish communities
depended greatly on the restora-
tion by Poland of normal relations
with Israel, broken off by the
Soviet government in the 1967
Six-Day War.
Sultanik said he had raised the

Shun Terrorists,
Or There'll Be No Peace
What is different about King Hussein's
speech before the General Assembly,
a difference with which Israel s
Prime Minister Shimon Peres appears to be
guardedly pleased, is that the King seems to
have given up on one of his preconditions for
peace talks.
This is the one which would exclude Israel
and involve a meeting among represen-
tatives from Jordan, Egypt and the
Palestine Liberation Organization all sitting
at the feet of Uncle Sam in Washington and
setting things up beforehand.
Supposedly, this would satisfy those of the
Arabs at the meeting who cannot bring
themselves to recognize Israel as a nation in
the first place those of the Arabs who con-
tinue to speak of Israel as the "Zionist enti-
ty." Hussein's sop to Israel is that the
Israelis would have veto power over those
Palestinians on a list of possible candidates
who would participate in the goings on.
No nation whose facticity is denied could
possibly have acceded to this insulting Hus-
sein precondition, and this is precisely what
the Israelis did. They rejected it.
What seems to please Peres for the mo-
ment is that in the King's speech,
he apparently dropped that demand. On
the other hand, he holds on to his two
others: (1) the participation of the Soviet
Union, as a permanent member of the
Security Council, in the international forum
before which the peace talks between Israel
and Jordan would ultimately be held; (2) par-
ticipation by the PLO.
With respect to the first, Peres is right
when he argues that the Soviet Union's
main interest in the Middle East is fomen-
ting more trouble between Israel and the
Arabs than already exists. It is hardly peace
that Moscow has in mind.
With respect to the second, if no other act
of terrorism can dissuade Israel otherwise,
and there have been many in the past few
weeks, then the murder of three Israeli
civilians by PLO members in Cyprus
surely explains why Israel can never
negotiate with the PLO.
Especially those American politicos who
seem to see in Israel's position on this a kind
of self-defeating paranoia ought to rethink
their opinions as they assess the latest Arab
terrorist threat about murdering the six
American hostages they are still holding in
Lebanon for the past 16 months if the
United States cannot, or will not, put
pressure on Kuwait to release 17 terrorists
from prison in that country for a series of
bombings in 1983.
We can understand why King Hussein ap-
pears to be attempting to cover all bases as
he moves clumsily toward rapprochement
with Israel. He does not want his move to
end the same way Egypt President Sadat's
did assassination at the hands of Moslem
But until he comes to realize that no one
can do business with terrorism as he did
when he kicked the PLO out of Jordan in
1970 neither can he make peace with

There was more anti-Israel
than pro-Arab activity at the
Sept. 5-8 Washington conven-
tion of the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Commit-
tee (ADC). The ADC, which
claims to be the largest
"grassroots" Arab-American
organization, was founded in
1980 to combat what it calls
"stereotyping, defamation,
and discrimination" directed
against Americans of Arab
descent and to "promote their
rich cultural heritage." The
conference agenda and
speakers, however, revealed
the ADC's raison d'etre: to
undermine the U.S.-Israel
Of 13 panels and workshops,
eight were blatantly anti-
Israel. The few sessions which
dealt with discrimination
against Arab-Americans (e.g.
"Portrayal of Arabs in
Cinema") were poorly attend-
ed in comparison.
With more than 1,500
delegates, the convention
opened with a one-and-a-half-
hour speech by former
Undersecretary of State
George Ball. Ball's version of
the Lebanon conflict maintain-
ed that Israel, abetted by the
United States, was to blame
for all of Lebanon's manifold
troubles. And he could not br-
ing himself to call the TWA hi-
jackers "terrorists"; he chose
instead to refer to them as
"young patriots" who had no
other options.
One virulent anti-Israel
panel, "Israel and South
Africa," featured Motlalepula
Chabaku, the founder of the
Black Women's Federation of
South Africa, who charged the
Israeli government with eras-
ing the Palestinian identity
and eroding the rights of
Palestinian inhabitants.
Chabaku was roundly applaud-
ed when she commented: "We
(Africans) educated the world
about one supreme God when
the Jews had many Gods;
that's a fact of life."
The panel insisted that
Israel is as much an apartheid
state as South Africa. One
speaker asserted that "all of
the kibbutzim in Israel are
apartheid institutions"
because they don't admit
Arabs as members. The panel
assailed Israel's trade relation-
ship with South Africa, ignor-
ing the fact that Arab-South
African trade is 20 times that
of Israel's. (Arab states pro-
vide 76 percent of South
Africa's oil needs and absorb
one-third of South Africa's
gold exports.)
Another panel, "The Unholy
Alliance: Right-Wing
Evangelicals and the Arab-
Israeli Conflict," brought
together representatives of
the three "great faiths." Rabbi
Elmer Berger, a long-time
anti-Zionist activist, declared
that "authentic Judaism can
have nothing in common with
Zionism." Khalid Bin Sayeed,
a visiting professor of political
science at The American
..University, described the
"neo-fascism" and "racial in-
tolerance" which he declared
existed not only in the radical
fringes of Israeli society but in
the mainstream as well.
In sharp contrast to the
other speakers, Cal Thomas,
vice president of the Moral Ma-
jority, strongly defended
Israel and its relationship to
the United States. The au-
dience reacted to Thomas'
message with hostility, fre-
quently interrupting him with
booing and hissing. In despera-
tion Thomas asked, "Are you
so afraid of hearing something
that you don't want to hear
that you have to silence me?"
Thomas was praised by one
pro-Israel observer for "really
standing up to them. Almost
literally, he was facing the
The convention's final
meeting included satellite
hook-ups to actress Vanessa
Redgrave and PLO leader
Yasir Arafat.
Redgrave reaffirmed her
suDDort of the PLO and
criticized "Zionist imperi-
alism" for blocking "every
peace effort The Jews in
Israel and throughout the
world will always be subject to
oppression and anti-Semitism
. .. unless they support the
Palestinians' right to deter-
mination," Redgrave
Yasir Arafat reiterated his
"peace for land" initiative
along with his familiar "gun
and olive branch" metaphor
which, he said, symbolizes his
desire to "protect the peaceful
initiative.' Arafat proudly
stated that the Lebanon war
was the longest Arab-Israeli
conflict to date and that the
PLO "succeeded in resisting
the invasion." In addition, he
announced that the PLO had
rebuilt its infrastructure, mak-
ing it "one of the most impor-
tant figures in the Middle East
Following the satellite
transmissions, folk singer Pete
Seeger prefaced his first at-
tempt to sing in Arabic by an-
nouncing, to loud applause,
that "it is better to massacre a

Dissecting The Media
The best article yet on the
networks' behavior during the
TWA hostage crisis has ap-
peared in September's Com-
mentary. "Israel, the
Hostages, and the Networks"
by David Bar-Illan is a searing
indictment of the American
media's anti-Israel and pro-
terrorist coverage. Well
researched and written, Bar-
Man's article may be enough
to drive usually sane people in-
to smashing their Sony
Trinitrons with a baseball bat.
Bar-Illan offers a number of
sharp observations. He
demonstrates how the media
"pounced on one of the hi-
jackers' demands the
release of over 700 Shi'ite de-
tainees in Israel to the ex-
clusion of all the others."
Those others included the
release of fellow terrorists
from prisons in Kuwait, Spain,
and Greece. On June 27, the
"Today" show's Bryant
Gumbel asked: "Will Israel
compromise on the TWA
hostages or play fast and loose
with American lives? Is Israeli
international politics going to
take precedence over the well-
being of the hostages?"
Gumbel's questions were
typical of the media's deter-
mination to make Israel not
the terrorists the villain i
the hostage drama. On anoU
show Robert Novak of the col]
umnist team Evans and New
(perhaps the most anti-Is
figure in media) managed i
blame Israel not only for d
TWA hijacking but indirect
for the killing of six Americans
in El Salvador, the midair exj
flosion which destroyed an Airf
ndia jet, and explosions aj
two other airports. He
that all these events were con
nee ted to Israel's release ol]
1,150 PLO terrorists. Ba
Ulan points to the twii
logic. "Journalists who
years had criticized Israel fa
refusing to talk to the PW

Living Kosher
(Printed with permission of
"The Journal of the North
Shore Jewish Community",
Salem, Massachusetts)
My five-year-old daughter
used to think that knives, forks
and spoons grew from potted
plants. Now, you may wrinkle
your brow and question her
reasoning ability. Actually, it
was quite logical thinking on
her part. At any given time,
there have been various pieces
of silverware snuggled in the
soil of my kitchen plants.
That's where I put them after
inadvertently misusing milchik
for fleishik or vice versa. I had
been taught to place these
Cieces in the soil for three days
efore using them again. And
when one lives in a high-rise
apartment building, the spider
plant in the kitchen is much
more convenient than the
sandbox in the park!
Funny, isn't it, how seeing a
"chore" through the eyes of a
child can make it less burden-
some. Like keeping kosher.
It's more than a little extra
work. But when my daughter
appointed herself "The sear-
cher of the K and U on
packages," the usually
tiresome marketing took on an
element of joyful sharing.
For me, this is what keeping
a kosher home is all about.
More than a commandment,
it's part of a statement that
we've inherited and, G-d will-
ing, wiH pass on for many
generations yet to come. It is a
statement of identity that we
share daily. Observing
Kashrut is one of the tightly
woven threads in our family
fabric. For, although we may
complain that our lasagna
must be forever meatless and
our cheeseburgers, cheeseless,
we do our kvetching together.
How often do we, as parents,
fall into the trap of "Do as I
say, not as I do?" Keeping a
kosher home teaches our
children, by sincere example,
that we do indeed believe in
the things we tell them. We do
' mean what we say; we do hold
ourselves accountable. And
isn't this sense of responsibili-
ty one of the attributes we
strive so eagerly to instill on
our children?
I believe that a kosher home
tells our children that Judaism
is more than a religion
separate from our everyday
living. It is rather, an integral
part of that everyday living. It
is a continuously on-going ex-
perience on which we build,
learn and teach.
And so, if our sons and
daughters groan about the
limits on the menus in our
homes, if they grumble about
the fact that they cannot sit in
front of the TV and savor a
pepperoni pizza or a whopper,
just think of the values they
are learning in their stead.
And when they move to live on
their own, you can bring them
the traditional loaf of bread,
box of salt and sugar AND a
lovely plant for their
Canada's Legal Fight Against Bigotry
Canada's third trial this year
under the 1970 law against
spreading racial and religious
hatred opened here recently.
The defendants, Donald An-
drews, 43, and Robert Smith,
34, are charged with "wilfully
promoting hatred" under Sec-
tion 281 of the Criminal Code.
Both are closely linked with
"The Nationalist Report," an
organ of the Nationalist Party
of Canada. Smith is editor of
the Report which is also known
as "The Andrews Report."
Crown Attorney Michael-
Anne MacDonald told Judge
E.F. Wren, that the Crown's
case against the two men
would rest on the contents of
"The National Report." It con-
tains "a substantial amount of
anti-Jewish hatred" but the
nrincipal targets are non-white
France To Sell
Arms To Iraq
PARIS (JTA) France
and Iraq have concluded an
agreement for the sale of 24
Mirage F-l's, equipped for in-
flight refuelling and capable of
firing air-to-air Exocet
The plane's manufacturer,
Marcel Dassault, 93, person-
ally announced the sale, saying
that Iraq has agreed to pay for
the planes in cash, some 15
billion Francs, or some $2
billion. The planes will be
delivered over an 18-month
Iraq already has 89 F-l's but
the new model will have,
thanks to their in-flight refuell-
ing facilities, a far longer
strike range. They will carry
two 30 mm. guns and seven
air-to-air to air-to-sea missiles.
The Exocet is the super
sophisticated air-to-sea missile
used with devastating effects
by the Argentinians during th-
eir battle with the British over
the Falkland Islands. Iraq has
used the Exocets to strike and
sink tankers carrying Iranian
oil from the Kharg terminal.
French experts, at a press
conference held by Dassault,
privately told reporters they
were deeply impressed by the
high level maintenance of the
planes by the Iraqi ground
crews and by combat
capabilities of the air crews.
The French technicians said
that the long war with Iran has
given the Iraqis the combat ex-
perience needed to turn them
into a modern and efficient air
racial groups, MacDonald said.
The trial was adjourned until
Dec. 9 to give Judge Wren
time to study more than 600
pages of documents, including
20 editions of "The Nationalist
Report." The accused chose to
be tried by the judge instead of
trial by jury an option in-
fluenced apparently by the fact
that two other anti-Semitic
hate mongers were convicted
in jury trials last January and
last March.
In January, Jim Keegstra, a
former high school teacher in
Eckville, Alberta, was found
guilty of disseminating anti-
Semitic propaganda in his
classroom. In March, a jury
convicted publisher Ernst
Zundel of "spreading false
news," notably that the
Holocaust was a hoax invented
by Jews.
According to MacDonald,
"The Nationalist Report" con-
tains "everything you always
wanted to know about hate

identity and purpose that
simply does not exist in other
Eastern European countries."
Shulman noted that many
young Romanian Jews are
looking forward to emigrating
to Israel, in the footsteps of
350,000 of their countrymen
who have made aliyah since
the end of World War II.
Asked how Rabbi Rosen
deals with pressure from the
pro-Soviet Romanian govern-
ment, Shulman remarked,
"Rabbi Rosen has proven to be
a very able politician as well as
a very able rabbi and leader of
the Jewish community."
From Romania the group
flew to Eilat in time for Shab-
bat. "We needed that
balance," Shulman observed.
After the Sabbath the
travelers visited a kibbutz in
the Negev, where Shulman
said, "We saw the miracle of
Israeli agricultural know-how
and accomplishments."
The group was greeted by
President Chaim Herzog and
had an opportunity to meet
with Ethiopian olim who had
been brought to Israel through
the efforts of UJA's Operation
The mission concluded with
three important, high-level
meetings with Minister of
Defense Yitzhak Rabin,
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai, and Prime Minister
Shimon Peres.
"Each of these leaders was
very candid in his assessment
of the struggles that Israel
faces in 1985," said Shulman.
"The security concerns of the
country remain paramount
and cannot be compromised
while Israel struggles with the
frustrations of the human and
financial costs.
"The Finance Minister was
very direct in his statements
on the severe economic situa-
tion Israel faces today, yet he
is optimistic that answers will
be found and progress will be
made toward resolving these
financial dilemmas.
"The Prime Minister ex-
pressed to us how important it
is for American Jews to feel
and be a part of this whole
Jewish process. Mr. Peres
feels strongly that Israel and
its people need our help, sup-
port and presence," Shulman
said, "and he shared with us
his tireless efforts to find a
common ground with Arab
countries to establish at least
the beginnings of a peaceful
coexistence in the area."
In conclusion, Shulman
assessed the value of the 1986
Major Gifts Invitational Mis-
sion by saying, "National UJA
views this very successful]
jor Gifts Mission as a l
cessful launching of the 1J
campaign and hopes that i
munities around the cou,
will follow this lead with i
cessful campaigns in
home communities."

The first Brangus cattle
ranch outside the U.S. is being
established in Israel through
embryo transfers from
Brangus cows in Texas into
Israeli cows. It is intended to
make Israel a center for
breeding the Brangus, con-
sidered the best beet cattle in
the world. This project is likely
to bring Israel some $10
million in much-needed foreign
currency from the export of
Brangus cows. Israel is a
perfect location for breeding
the Brangus since they breed
well in hot climates.

U.S. Farmers Becoming Susceptible To Extremism
,;ri, economic crisis affecting
American farmers where an
"atmosphere of despair and
hopelessness" has set in, is
providing fertile ground for
nehtwing extremist groups to
gain recruits, according to the
head <'f an Iowa-based
farmer's organization.
"Farmers across the country
and particularly in the
Midwest are now facing a
greater economic upheaval
than anv we have seen in more
than a half a century," Dixon
Terry, chairman of the Iowa
Farm Unity Coalition, told
reporters at American Jewish
Committee headquarters here.
"Because of economic
dislocation, the loss of farms,
and the financial pressures
that farmers and their families
are under, there is an at-
mosphere of despair and
hopelessness, and in this at-
mosphere many farmers are
blindly grabbing at anything
that seems to provide an
answer for them."
Continuing Terry added:
"They are thus ripe for the
manipulations of rightwing
groups which provide
simplistic answers, conspiracy
theories, and bogus legal prac-
tices that will supposedly solve
the farmers' very serious dif-
ficulties. The problem is that
these farmers have little or no
contact with other segments
or with mainstream media.
and so they are prey to these
Terry appeared with Chris-
tian and Jewish religious
leaders, and representatives of
civil rights and farm groups at
a news conference recently.
They denounced recent at-
tempts by extremist groups to
stir up anti-Semitism among
despairing farmers, warning
that these actions posed a
danger to the farmers and to
democracy, as well as to
Christian-Jewish relations.
The participants at the news
conference warned that while
there has been some increase
in recruits to these extreme
groups, they have by and large
not been welcomed by the
rural, middle west community.
officials, law enforcement of-
ficials, Christian clergy
leaders, and others. "All
agree," he reported, "that the
radical right is making signifi-
cant gains among some of the
economically threatened
It is difficult to determine
the exact number of members
in the extremist organizations,
due to the secrecy of the
groups. But Leonard Zeskind,
research director of the Center
for Democratic Renewal in
Atlanta, estimated that the far
right groups have between
2,000 and 5,000 "hardcore ac-
tivists" and between 14,000
and 50,000 sympathizers in the
Middle West.
"Over the last five years the
level of organizing activity by
racists and anti-Semites has
steadily increased," Zeskind
told the news conference.
"They have taken advantage
of the crisis in rural America
and used the crisis to put for-
ward their own political agen-
da. They have used both the
more flamboyant tactics of
paramilitary training and hate
mongering as well as the
established political tactics of
base building."
The stockpiling of weapons,
food, ammunitions, and ex-
plosives is also part of the ac-
tivities of extremist groups,
and according to Kelly, some
leaders of extremist organiza-
tions "urge their members to
take violent action against
Jews and racial minorities."
But Kelly cautioned that per-
sons recently responsible for
various terrorist activities in
Kansas are not farmers
themselves, "and we believe
that members of our farm
population are discerning in-
dividuals who reject extremist
view points for what they
All participants at the news
conference urged a concerted
effort by the government to
stem the growing financial
plight facing the farmers.
There was also a call from a
Christian cleric for education
programs to combat the ef-
forts of extremist groups.
Bishop Maurice Dingman,
head of the Catholic Diocese of
De Moines. stressed the need
for a "strong educational pro-
gram to dispel the notion of
the so-called 'Jewish con-
spiracy of bankers' allegedly
trying to take farms away
from family farmers."
"We must unmask groups
like the one that calls itself the
Christian Identity that
makes a mockery of Christiani-
ty by calling themselves Chris-
tian while spreading a patently
un-Christian message,"
Dingman declared. "These
groups engender only hate."
Rev. Donald Manworren, ex-
ecutive coordinator of the
Iowa Interchurch Forum,
warned that the far right
movement "must be taken in
all seriousness." Noting the
situation of American farmers
and its effect on rural
America, Manworren said.
"The sense of helplessness,
rage and despair created by
these changes makes people
vulnerable to explanations
that seem to fix blame and pro-
mise hope.
Reaction To Hussein's UN Speech

ditional arguments and cause
interminable delays," Peres
The Likud reaction was
sharply different in tone.
Foreign Minister and Deputy
Premier Yitzhak Shamir, the
Likud leader who is presently
in New York attending the
Geneal Assembly, asserted
over the weekend that there
was "nothing new" in Hus-
sein's speech.
Acting Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens said that Isrelis
who read Hussein's words in a
positive way apparently did
not read his entire UN speech.
A statement by the Foreign
Ministry noted that the King
mentioned the 1947 Palestine
partition resolution of the UN
and a General Assembly
resolution calling for the
repatnation or compensation
for Palestinian refugees.
Minister of Tourism
Avraham Sharir, a Likud-
Liberal, warned that Hussein
had built "a trap" for Israel.
Other Likud spokesmen
stressed Jordan's desire to win
approval for its major arms
deal with the U.S., announced
by President Reagan Friday
which faces powerful opposi-
tion in Congress.
Peres himself, in a gesture
toward Likud, noted in his
statement that if Hussein's
speech was not followed by a
"positive result" direct
negotiations with Israel
there would be "no change
from the previous situation."
He made clear that his guard-
ed optimism should not be in-
terpreted as support for or ac-
quiescence in the U.S.-Jordan
arms deal. The Premier, while
praising Hussein's "vision of
peace" and "his reference to
cooperation between the na-
tions of the Middle East,"
spoke sharply against the U.S.
intention to sell Jordan up to
$1.9 billion in sophisticated air-
craft and other military hard-
ware. "No speech can justify
an arms deal, and Israel con-
tinues to oppose the arms deal
between the U.S. and Jordan,"
Peres said.
He also insisted that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion cannot be a negotiating
partner with Israel, all the
more so in light of the terrorist
acts perpetrated by the PLO in
recent weeks. In that connec-
tion he criticized the distinc-
tion Hussein drew between
terrorism which he con-
demned and acts of "na-
tional liberation fighters."
"Violence is violence. No
fight for national liberation
can justify the murder of inno-
cent men, women and
children," Peres declared.

These individuals "become the
new 'lost tribes' of Judaism, and
Judaism's loss does not translate
into gains for Christianity or
other cultures. They are cut
adrift," Margolis says.
THE EXTERNAL challenges
confronting parevehs are equally
acute. Pareveh's Washington
representative, Leslie Goodman-
Malamuth, discovered that some
segments of the Jewish communi-
ty welcome parevehs, while other
Jewish groups are ambivalent or
indifferent. "The Christians con-
sider it a mxtzvah to convert us,
but there's no room there for our
Jewish roots," she notes.
Both Margolis and Goodman-
Malamuth are familiar with other
problems facing parevehs: family
pressure to conceal a side of their
dual heritage; questions about
how to celebrate holidays and
such rites of passage as naming
ceremonies, confirmations, mar-
riages, and funerals; and exposure
to Christian anti-Semitism.
Status as a pareveh also ag-
gravates* citizenship problems.
Parevehs in the Soviet Union are
frequently legally classified as
Jewish nationals and share in the
misfortunes of Soviet Jewry,
while parevehs in Israel are not
always classified as Jews, and
thus face ambiguous citizenship
Yet these myriad problems can
f and do inspire numerous
creative solutions. Whether they
identify as Jews, Christians, or
secularists, parevehs can achieve
a sense of place if these adult
children of intermarriage and
their parents begin work on pro-
jects designed to create construc-

Background Report
A Reprise Of Old Refrains
As the Administration gropes
for evidence of movement in
the Mideast peace process that
would bolster its case for sell-
ing new arms to Jordan, the
current sequence of visits here
by the Egyptian and Jordanian
heads of state seem to
underscore how little has
changed since they were in
Washington last spring.
In fact, the appearance here
of Egypt's President Hosni
Mubarak and Jordan's King
Hussein both of whom arriv-
ed in the country last week,
Brimarily to address the
nited Nations General
Assembly but also to meet
with President Reagan and
other Administration officials
in Washington has looked so
far like reruns of an old serial
with some minor splicing here
and there.
Mubarak met with Reagan
recently where, according to a
State Department briefer, he
tried, as he did during his visit
last March, to persuade the
Administratioon to take the in-
itiative in moving the peace
process ahead.
Although no statements
were made by the two
Presidents following the
White House meeting those
are generally reserved for of-
ficial state visits it appeared
that Mubarak had tried, as he
did the last time, to persuade
the U.S. to meet with a joint
Jordanian-Palestinian delega-
tion even if it includes
delegates closely associated
with the PLO.
Since Mubarak's last visit
here, the Administration has
agreed to consider meeting
with such a delegation if it
does not include any PLO
representatives and if there is
a clear indication that the talks
would lead to direct negotia-
tions between Jordan and
Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy went to the
Middle East last summer in an
attempt to reach agreement on
the composition of a delegation
acceptable to the United
States. Washington has
assured Israel it will not meet
with PLO representatives un-
til the organization recognizes
the existence of Israel and re-
nounces terrorism.
But the trip failed to produce
any agreement, and Mubarak
appeared to have returned to
the White House re-reciting
his March appeal, and to have
left with nothing more to show
for it. Still stinging from the
domestic criticism that follow-
ed its attempt to pass off the
March visit as a smashing suc-
cess, the Egyptian govern-
ment is doubly wary of display-
ing last month's meetings as
having scored any major ac-
complishments for Mubarak in
the peace process. According-
ly, a commentary on the Egyp-
tian state-controlled radio
recently warned:
"Anyone who believes that
any meeting between Mubarak
and Reagan will produce im-
mediate results or, in other
workd, will completely change
Washington's stand toward
the PLO, is mistaken. A
change of stand requires an ex-
haustive study of all aspects of
the problems." The commen-
tary stressed that "there
should be no hasty judgment
about the result of the
Mubarak-Reagan meeting."
The continued lack of move-
ment was also underscored in
a speech here recently by
Egyptian Foreign Minister
Ismat Abdel Meguid, who
lamented that "promising
chances for peace continue to
be missed."
"Imposing limited concepts
and insistence of guaranteeing
the outcomes of the
preliminary dialogue before it
starts would create by itself an
unnecessary obstacle which
may hamper our efforts in the
search for a peaceful settle-
ment," Meguid warned in a
keynote address to the annual
conference of the Middle East
Invest in
Israel Securities

The Egyptian Embassy's
deDutv Chief of Mission, Raouf
Ghoneim, delivered the speech
because the Foreign Minister
had been detained in New
York. Meguid, in his prepared
keynote address, called it "un-
fair" in the 1980's "to strictly
adhere to formulas of the
1970's like that of not
recognizing or negotiating
with the PLO.
Mubarak himself, in his
General Assembly address,
hardly touched on the peace
process, focussing instead on
economic development issues.
In any case, it is Hussein on
whom progress in the peace
process is hinging now, and
the Reagan Administration
was undoubtedly hoping for a
tangible sign of some move-
ment on his part that would
both enable the U.S. to meet
with the joint delegation and
justify the proposed sale of
new arms to Jordan.
The Administration gave
Congress informal notification
on Friday of its intention to
provide the Jordanians with a
$1.55 to $1.9 billion arms
package that includes 40 F20s
or F16 fighter jets; 12 mobile
improved Hawks surface-to-
air missile batteries and equip-
ment to convert 14 batteries
into mobile units; 72 Stinger
shoulder-fired surface-to-air
missiles and 36 reloads; 300
AIM-9P4 infrared air-to-air
missiles; and 32 Bradley
fighting vehicles.
A provision in the recently
passed foreign and bill makes
new arms sales to Jordan con-
tingent on the King's public
commitment to recognize
Israel and negotiate with it
"promptly and directly."
The Administration has
argued that Hussein has
already met these conditions,
but legislators have made it
clear that the Jordanian
monarch will need to take a
bold move if a battle with Con-
gress is to be avoided.
Consequently, while the Ad-
ministration may be quick to
seize Hussein's address to the
UN General Assembly as a
new evidence that Jordan has
met the demands of Congress,
the King's more explicit hints
of Jordan's willing
negotiate directly wrth ,t

UM's Second Annual
Jewish Film Festival
The original Yiddish film which
inspired the popular musical "Fid-
dler on the Roof," will premiere at
the University of Miami's Second
Annual Jewish Film Festival,
beginning Oct. 15. Sponsored b/
the UM's Judaic Studies Program
and the Central Agency for
Jewish Education, the film
festival will feature four Yiddish
films that date back nearly one-
half century.
"Two of the films were produc-
ed in Poland before the Holocaust,
and they provide rare glimpses of
Yiddish artistic achievement," sa-'
id Henry Green, PhD, director of
UM*s Judaic Studies Program.
The film series begins on Tues-
day, Oct. 15. with "Tevye der MH-
chiker" (Tevye. The Dairvman).
Thi> 1936 film, directed by
Maurice Schwartz, is a moving
and authentic tale of Sholem
Aleichem's characters: Tevye, the
dairyman, and his daughter.
Chave, who falls in love with a
Russian peasant and marries him
against the wishes of her parents.
"Tevye" is a classic among Yid-
dish cinema, and presents
different picture ,
Hollywood s musical "Fiddler m

A Yiddish interpretation of the
Faust legend is the premise for
the next film in the series, on Oil

Man and Devil) is a classic tale of

Hundreds of Jewish war
veterans from all over the
world are expected to at-
tend the Fourth World
Assembly of Jewish War
Veterans in Jerusalem. The
Assembly, which will mark
the 40th anniversary of the
end of World War II, will
take place next Feb. 23-27
at Hotel Larom in the
Israeli capital.
"This is a major event and we
want to have as many Jewish war
veterans as we could," Lt. Col.
(Res.) Shimon Behar, deputy
chairman of the Israel War
Veterans League (IWVL), said in
an interview here, noting that
some 1.5 million Jewish soldiers,
in various armies, particiapted in
World War II.
THE ASSEMBLY, which is
sponsored by the IWVL and
Israel's President, Premier and
Chief of Staff, who will also ad-
dress the gathering, will bring
together veterans from the
United States, Britain, France,
Canada, Australia, New Zealand,
Belgium, Denmark and Israel.
The week-long Assembly in-
cludes workshops, discussions and
lectures on subjects relevant to
Jewish war veterans as well as
Israel's security problems and
prospects for peace in the
Mideast; world anti-Semitism; and
Jewish communities around the
world. In addition, the par-
ticipants will visit places of scien-
tific, technological and
agricultural interest as well as
military installations.
The previous assemblies, held in
Jerusalem in 1976,1979 and 1981,
attracted about 800 participants
each time. "At this assembly we
hope to have close to 1,000
veterans," said Behar, who was a
soldier in the Jewish Brigade of
the British Army during WWII.
"We hope for a large American
delegation of Jewish war
HE SAID that American
Jewish war veterans who want to
attend the assembly can receive
all the details and further infor-
mation by calling Lea Herman, a
representative of the assembly
here, at (212)-947-9595 or
"This is an important assembly
not only because it will help to
deepen the ties between Jewish
war veterans around the world
but also because it will underscore
to the entire world the significant
role Jewish soldiers played in'
fighting for a freer and better
world," Behar said.

an exciting event of our nurs-

the fact that the performance

Jewish Life Rekindled In Oslo
dramatic story of how an
isolated European Jewish com-
munity, without a rabbi for
more than 20 years, bounced
back from the Holocaust with
the aid of the Memorial Foun-
dation for Jewish Culture and
the local community, came to
light recently, according to a
report by the Foundation.
From 1958 to 1980, Oslo,
Norway, functioned without a
rabbi. It fell upon Michael
Melchior, the eldest son of a
Danish family counting six
generations of rabbis, to rekin-
dle Jewish life in one of world
Jewry's loneliest outposts.
There are some 900 Jews in
Norway, almost all of them in
Oslo, of a population of 4.115
Trained in Israel with the
help of the Foundation and the
Oslo community, Rabbi
Melchior opened the first
kindergarten in Oslo since the
Holocaust and revitalized the
afternoon schools, which teach
children from ages 7 through
13. In 1979, there were 39
children receiving religious in-
struction at the Jewish Com-
munity Center in Oslo. The
number for 1985 is 68.
Melchior has reactivated the
youth groups. Teenagers study
Jewish history, Zionism and
religious texts. More than 80
percent of all Jewish youth are
now being reached.
Herman Kahan, vice presi-
dent of the Oslo Jewish Com-
munity, describes one way in
which Melchior works with
"Expectant faces wait every
Friday for the weekly ap-
pearance of 'Michael,' as they
call him. One week, he appears
as a pirate; the next, an expec-
tant mother. His imaginative
disguises inspire the children
to listen to his words and ap-
preciate Shabbat as something
very special." And special it is
for the children who bake
challah, say kiddush and light
the Shabbat candles every
week. Basic elements of
Hebrew are taught in the
Jewish kindergarten; and
every 17th of May, the
Norwegian national holiday,
the children march under their
own banner in a children's
Through the children's choir
that Melchior initiated, he has
also brought new life and in-
creased attendance at the
synagogue, bringing into the
synagogue's orbit much of the
community's youth and many
young couples as well.
Adult education has also
been a focus of Melchior. A
large number of workshops
have been organized under his
leadership with study groups
in Pirkey Avot, Jewish
thought, and Jewish holidays.
Melcnior's wife, Hannah, has
taught classes for potential
Melchior was instrumental
in establishing the Kosher
Food Center, a grocery which
at the time of its opening in '
November 1981 had the
largest selection of kosher
foods in Europe. Since 1982,
the Center has provided food
amounting to $30,000 each
year to the Jews in Poland.
This enterprise has come
about thanks to an agreement
with Norway's Church Relief
Society tKirkensnodhjelp).
In addressing the larger con-
cerns of the Jewish communi:
ty, Melchior interprets
Judaism and the Jewish com-
munity to the Christian com-
munity through regular con-
tacts with churches, univer-
sities, schools and service
One of Melchior's greatest
achievements is the creation of
the Norwegian Council of
Soviet Jewry, in which he
serves as co-chairman with
Christopher Gjoterrud, Pro-
fessor of Physics at the
University of Oslo. The Coun-
cil has been very successful in
raising the issue of Soviet
Jewry at the highest level of
government in Norway.
At the end of this year,
Melchior will make aliya. The
Oslo Jewish leaders have come
up with a plan which will be
put into action next year.
Melchior will commit himself
to reside in Oslo for four mon-
ths of every year including
the High Holy Days and will
receive a salary which covers
his year's expenses. This solu-
tion will enable him to con-
tinue his studies in Israel the
rest of the year.
The help that the Memorial
Foundation for Jewish Culture
has provided Melchior is in line
with the emphasis the Founda-
tion is placing on service to
dispersed Jewish communities
communities that are
isolated both from Jewish life
and from other Jewish

| and the other, between the West

THE SCOPE of the indem-

great magnitudes in the first 20
years of tile existence of the

submitted over 4,200,000 claims
under the provisions of just the
first agreement, and 75 percent of
the funds paid went directly to the
claimants who made their homes
in countries other than Germany.
Virtually all were Jews. Some

2 Novels, Varying Quality, But Enjoyable
Goodbye Karl Erich. By Sam
Dann. New York: St. Martin's
Press, 1985. 231 pp., $15.95.
Leah's Children. By Gloria
Goldreich. New York: Mac-
millan Publishing Co., 1985.
369 pp. $16.95.
Novels are written to give
pleasure; they are read to receive
pleasure. We read novels to be
entertained to be caught up
with the experiences and the feel-
ings of the characters in the novel.
To the degree that the author
evokes such a response, to that
degree, the novel has succeeded.
If. on the other hand, we derive no
pleasure from the novel, if we are
bored, if we put the novel down
unfinished, then the novelist has
By these tests, both these
novels are reasonably successful,
one more than the other. Gloria
Goldreich has written a Jewish
soap opera. The situations she
describes are relatively familiar,
and we sense that her characters
are real. We respond to them, and
we are concerned with what hap-
pens to them.
SAM DANN, by contrast, is
somewhat less successful, partly
because his characters are not
familiar to us. Despite the
heaviness of his theme, his novel
is light and slight.
Dann's book opens in a Miami
Beach hotel room where Dr.
Richard Stammler, the house
physician, is called to tend to a
hotel guest who turns out to be
Dr. Paul Schneider, a former col-
league of his in Germany. They
were residents together in a Ger-
man hospital in the 1930's just
before Hitler came to power.
Stammler fled from the Nazis
and came to America, where he
made a life for himself as a Miami
physician. When he became too
old for his regular practice and
when his wife died, he took on the
job of hotel doctor. ,
Schneider had joined the Nazi
Party and survived the war, but
blocked out memory of his ex-
periences. As the story opens, he
is a tourist in Miami, but he is a
sick old man, confined to a
wheelchair. The meeting of the
two old friends opens a floodgate
of recollections for Stammler.
Most of the book takes us back to
Germany in the early 1930's.
STAMMLER treated Karl
Erich of the book's title, a young
man who was suffering from a
hysterical inability to speak,
brought on by his father's death in
World War I. He is cured of his af-
fliction by Stammler and becomes
a leading member of the Nazi Par-
ty. Just before Stammler carries
out his determination to flee from
Germany, he accidentally meets
Karl Erich who tries to repay his
debt to Stammler by urging him
to stay, promising that he will
make Stammler the most impor-
tant doctor in Germany.
Stammler then reveals that he is
a Jew and Karl Erich, a stalwart
Nazi, is so shocked by this revela-
tion that he falls back into
mutism. Stammler's final words
to him, "Goodbye Karl Erich,"
became the book's title.
There are a few sub-plots, but
the story of Stammler and Karl
Erich is the central emphasis.
Although the author makes a
valiant effort to give the book
significance by trying to paint a
picture of pre-Hitler Germany, he
does this with thin brush strokes
that suggest a mood but which
lack depth and which come across
as colorless daubs.
CONVERSELY. Goldreich's
pictures of life in Scarsdale, in
Mississippi and on and Israeli kib-
butz have a measure of richness
and authenticity. Her book is a se-
quel to "Leah's Journey" which
told the storv of a woman who
became a Jewish matriarch.
Unlike the Jewish mama of
chicken soup and newspapers on
the kitchen floor before Shabbos,
Leah became a Scarsdale matron,
maintaining a successful career as
wife, mother, artist and designer.
The first book told of her
sacrifices in supporting her hus-
band through medical school and
in raising three children. This se-
quel as the name indicates, tells
about her daughter and two sons.
The story of each of the three
lives is told as a novella. Aaron,
the eldest, is a successful lawyer,
later a judge. He accepts a mission
given to him bv his Israeli brother-
in-law to rescue a Jewish physicist
from Hungary. The physicist
turns out to be a beautiful woman
who later marries Aaron. In New
York, she combines her scientific-
career with being a wife and a
mother, producing three children
and a special radar invention
which helps the Israelis.
REBECCA, the daughter, mar-
ried an Israeli after working with
him in saving Jewish children
from Europe. She and her hus-
band live on a kibbutz where she is
an accomplished artist and he is a
member of the Israeli intelligence
establishment. Their marriage
falters because he is often absent
for long periods on secret
assignments, because he is
haunted by memories of his first
wife who was killed while protec-
ting him and because a son from
that marriage is killed by the
Arabs. After Rebecca has an af-
fair during a visit to America, she
decides to return to her husband
and her two sons in Israel.
Michael, the second son, is a
sociology professor at Sarah
Lawrence College, thinly disguis-
ed as Hutchinson College, in
Westchester County, New York.
He spent three summers in the
early 1960's in Mississippi, par-
ticipating in the civil rights ac-
tivism of those days. He was

B'rith International's director
for South America, reported
that three special programs on
the significance of Jewish New
Year were aired by three of
the four television stations, on
the evening of Sept. 14. the
afternoon of Sunday 15, im-
mediately prior to the start of
Rosh Hashanah and on Tues-
day 17, upon the conclusion of
the two-day celebration.
The programs included a
presentation by Vito Atijas,

Uruguayan district of B'nai
B'rith, and Eduardo Kohn, ex-
ecutive director; greetings by
the Israeli Ambassador in
Uruguay, Dr. Manajem Carmi;
and films showing Jewish life
in Israel and the diaspora.
After describing briefly
B'nai B'rith's history and
philosophy, Atijas indicated
that "our organization, the
oldest and largest Jewish ser-
vice movement, is proud to
present to the Uruguayan peo-
ple images of the Jewish na-
tion throughout the world."
Atijas concluded by wishing
"that we in B'nai B'rith com-

Dissecting the Media
Continued from Page 4-
ed by the media in speaking of
the United States and the
Soviet Union, both of whom
are often portrayed as commit-
ting parallel crimes in com-
parable pursuit of hegemony.
The Soviets invaded
Afghanistan; we invaded
Grenada. They shot down
KAL Flight 007; we support
atrocities by the contras in
He points to another
(somewhat breathtaking) ex-
ample of this phenomenon. On
July 10, New York Times col-
umnist Tom Wicker wrote:
"Was television 'used' by
Amal? Of course, just as it is
being used all the time by the
Reagan Administration for its
purposes." Bar-Illan writes:
Here we have the ultimate
evenhandedness; (Nabih Bern)
a godfather of cut-throats, kid-
nappers, and assassins" com-
pared to the democratically-
elected President of the
United States.
Bar-Illan does not believe
that the media's tender
coverage of Shi'ite terrorists
was produced by any real con-
cern for the Shi'ites of
Lebanon. After all, the media
paid no attention when they
were "savaged, raped, and
murdered by the PLO ... ex-
ploited by Sunni Moslems,
patronized by Christian Arabs,
and oppressed by Syria." By
the same token, the media
cared little about he Palesti-
nians who after the Israelis
pulled out of Lebanon were
slaughtered by the Shi'ites.
The media is only interested in
Middle Eastern atrocities
which it can link with Israel.
That is why the 1982 Sabra
and Shatila massacre of
Palestinians by Israel's
"allies" received "more air
time and more inches of print
in the American media than all
the atrocities and massacres
throughout the world since
World War II combined."
Nevertheless, one might
have thought that the anti-
Israel correspondents would
have had a hard time pinning
this one on Israel especially
because the hijackers and their
Amal buddies are Israel's arch-
enemies. We won't be that
naive again. Now we know
that the media will always find
the Israel angle, the hook with
which to skewer Israel. It's
like the old joke about the
Jewish paranoid who asked
to write an essay on elephants
writes a theme on
"elephants and the Jewish pro-
blem." It looks like the media
would handle an elephant
story the same way.

In Daring Raid
Israeli Jets Hit PLO in Tunisia
Continued from Page 1
ed from the Black September unit
of the 1970s, which took its name
from the struggle the PLO waged
for its survival in 1970 when King
Hussein successfully ousted
Arafat from Jordan.
According to these sources.
Arafat gave Force 17 primary
responsibility for PLO operations
in Israel and are responsible for
the recent mounting of attacks on
numerous Israelis in Jerusalem,
Haifa, the West Bank and Gaza.
Commander of Force 17 is
Mahmoud Natur. whose code
name is Abu Tayib, a close Arafat
associate. Reports here indicate
that he was killed in the air raid on
Hamam Plage.
Israel declares that Force 17
gives Arafat a chance to keep up
his terrorist attacks while denying
all responsibility for them.
ONLY HOURS before Israels
raid. Prime Minister Shimon
Peres declared that Israel would
"not forget or forgive the Lar-
naca affair."
After reports of the raid cap-
tured headlines around the world,
Peres declared: "Tunisia granted
refuge to PLO headquarters,
which is not at all subject to the
laws and sovereignty of Tunisia.
In reality, Tunisia granted the
PLO territory that was
transformed into independent ter-
ritory and the center of terrorist
Said Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin: "No PLO terrorist target
is immune, no matter where it is
located, against attack by us."
THE PLANES particiDatinc- in
the raid were said by Arab
observers to be either U.S.-built
F-16s or French Mirages. Accor-
ding to Israeli Air Force Com-
mander Amos Lapidot, "All our
planes returned safely." He said
nothing about their source of
To reach their target, the planes
were refueled in midair over the
Mediterranean before they began
their bombing runs and then
returned home on their 3,000-mile
According to Army Chief of
Staff Moseh Levy, the jets avoid-
ed a boarding school near Arafat's
command post and otherwise took
great precautions against harm-
ing civ liana.
Rabin emphasized that Israel is
determined to respond with in-
creasing vigor to terrorist attacks
directed against it
He added: "The time has come
to hit at not only the im-
plemented, not only the im-
termediate levels, not only the in-
stigators, but at the upper echelon
that takes the decisions."
IN RESPONSE to questions
about the possible impact of the
retaliatory raid on the Middle
East peace process, Rabin said
that "If there is anything that
harms the prospects of the peace
process it is the PLO's terrorist
effort headed by Arafat."
But Egypt promptly can-
celed its ongoing negotiations
with Israel in Cairo over Taba.
President Hosni Mubarak sent a
cable to President Reagan in
which he spoke in angry terms
about Israel's "wanton terrorist
And Egyptian Foreign Minister
Esmat Abdel-Meguid in Cairo call-
ed the raid a "heinous criminal
BUT IN Washington, the
, Reagan Administration called the
Israeli action "a legitimate
response 'to terrorism.' "

Prime Minister Peres
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes called retaliations
against terrorism "an expression
of self-defense. From the
preliminary reports available to
us, this appears to be what was in-
volved in this case."
Defense Minister Rabin
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman, acknowledging
that "We understand American
equipment was used," declared
that, "as a matter of principle, in
our view it is legitimate self-
defense to respond to acts of
An Odd Couple
JERUSALEM (JTA) A tiny aberration from
the total hostility between Israel and Libya took place
last month in Milan, Italy. An Israeli diplomat was ac-
tive in drafting an international diplomatic document
and a Libyan diplomat was active in having it en-
dorsed by a United Nations agency. The event occur-
red at the Seventh UN Congress on the Prevention of
Crime and the Treatment of Offenders.
The Israeli delegation, together with Australia
and the United States, drafted a resolution on
domestic violence entitled "Victims of Crime" and
the Second Committee of the Congress, chaired by
Libya, adopted the resolution unanimously. The
Israeli diplomats reported back to Jerusalem on this
rare chink in the bleak wall of enmity.
Blasts Injures Five in Haifa
TEL AVTV- (JTA) -Five people were injured In the first
of two almost simultaneous explosions in downtown Haifa on
Sept. 29. The first blast went off under a vegetable stand in what
is known as the Turkish market. The owner of the stall was one
of the injured. The market was crowded with pre-holiday shop-
pers at the time. '
The explosive charge had been hidden in a plastic bag. Police
complained that the netting which stall owners have been in-
structed to place beneath aikraroand their stalls to prevent such
explosives from being placed there, had been faulty.
While police were investigating the market blast, another
explosion went off in a nearby small public garden, but caused
neither casualties nor damages.
NEW YORK (JTA) A full color children's poster has
been designed by Maurice Sendak, illustrator of children's
books, for the 1986 North American celebration of Jewish Book
Month Nov. 7 to Dec. 7.
Blu Greenberg, president oithe JWB Jewish Book Council,
sponsor of the event, said Sendak drew, for the children's
poster, one of the friendly "wild animals" for which he is known.
Greenberg said Jewish Book Month has become a widely
observed date on the calendar of North American Jewry, with
Jewish community centers, synagogues, Jewish schools,
libraries, organizations and entire Jewish communities staging
Jewish Book Fairs and other special book programs to focus at-
tention on the latest books of Jewish interest.

nourishment the cells of the
lens die and are of little
value to researchers. The
new procedure makes it
possible to maintain them
for as long as 40 days.
Dr. Dovrat observed that the
outer and the inner curved sur-
faces of the lens not only have dif-
ferent functions in the living eye
but they also are bathed by dif-
ferent body fluids. Consequently,
lenses in the laboratory may have
deteriorated relatively rapidly
because they were submerged in a
single culture medium which, at
best, could properly nourish only
one lens surface but never both.
By supplying two different
culture mediums, one situated
above the lens and the other
below, Dr. Dovrat discovered that
both surfaces could receive the re-
quired nourishment. Her techni-
que will be instrumental in advan-
cing research to impede and even
reverse some of the natural aging
processes that rob the elderly of
their eyesight: the loss of
transparency as changes in cell
metabolic activity affect light
transmission (as with cataracts)
and the lens' loss of flexibility as
cells lose their ability to change
their shape with age.
Dr. Dovrat and her associates at
Technion are developing tests to
objectively measure lens health.
They are currently working on a
computerized system where a
scanning laser beam will impact
on sensors to measure ens
transparency. This project is like-
ly to be of major significance in
studying the harmful effects of
otherwise valuable medications on
the eyes.

Soviet Jewry Update
Rally Stresses Soviet Jewry Agenda
While President Reagan and
Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze met for
four hours in the White House
recently, some 100 persons
gathered across the street in
Lafayette Park to stress the
need to keep the cause of
Soviet Jewry on the agenda of
the talks between the United
States and the Soviet Union.
"The Soviet government is
aware what we do here today,
perhaps in a sense, more
aware than our own govern-
ment." Rep. Michael Barnes
(D., Md.), a member of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee, told the rally spon-
sored by the Jewish Communi-
ty Council of Greater
Barnes stressed that
demonstrations, letters and
other signs of support "makes
a difference" and said he and
others have been told this "by
the people whose freedom we
seek," Jews in the USSR.
Sen. Paul Trible (R., Va.),
member of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, called
the "continuing persecution"
of Soviet Jewry "one of the

about eight houses across the
stret" before the bomb squad
detonated the third bomb. The
three bombs were sent to the
Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion for investigation, accor-
ding to Dickson.
Meanwhile, police placed
synagogues and Jewish in-
stitutions, including the JCF
building which houses several
organizations, under
surveillance. Police officers
will be "physically stationed
outside all synagogues,"
Dickson said, adding the
patrols would remain "24
hours a day through Yom Kip-
pur." Patrols also will be pass-
ing rabbis' homes on a fre-
quent basis.
The latest incidents are
believed to be linked to two
other pipe bombs found in San
Francisco earlier this year, in-
cluding one at Traub's con-
F-egation, Dickson said. The
BI has yet to complete
analysis of the pipe bomb
found at Congregation Adath
Israel in July, Dickson said,
but the recent incidents "will
probably expedite analysis this
time." The SFPD was unable
to solve other anti-Semitic in-
cidents last year: the defacing
of six synagogues, a Jewish
day school and five Jewish
businesses with anti-Semitic
slogans in August, 1984; the
desecration of San Francisco's
monument to the Holocaust
two days after its dedication in
November; and a fire at the
Shamir Accuses PLO
Israel's Foreign Minister and
Deputy Premier Yithak
Shamir has accused the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion of responsibility for the
murder of three Israelis abo-
ard a yacht in Larnaca, Cyprus
The Israeli minister said the
PLO perpetrated and stood
behind all recent acts of terror
in Israel. "These acts of terror
were done by the PLO and its
leader (Yasir) Arafat," he said.
Shamir added, "We will find a
way to put an end to it. We will
overcome it. We will overcome
Shamir charged that the
PLO has not changed its nat-
ure, though, he noted, at-
tempts have been made
recently, even in Western
countries, to prove the con-
headquarterts of Jewish rock
most sustained, systematic
and severe acts of repression
in history." He said he has
been assured that President
Reagan will bring up the issue
during his summit conference
in Geneva with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev.
Earlier a letter was hand
delivered to the White House
signed by all 100 Senators urg-
ing the President to raise the
human rights issue with
The letter was initiated by
Senate Majority Leader
Robert Dole (R. Kan.) and
Minority Leader Robert Byrd
(D., W.Va.) and suggested by
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
At the rally, Barnes' point
that demonstrations make a
difference was illustrated by

impresario Bill Graham where gregation Har Shalom, who is
a neo-Nazi group claimed president of the Washington

refuseniks "are not guilty I

Soviet Jewish Emigration May Increase
Jewish Agency chairman Leon
Dulzin said recently it was
"not impossible" that the
gates of the Soviet Union
would soon be open again to
Jewish emigration, and he add-
ed the "hone" that emigrants
would be able to travel directly
to Israel.
His remarks, in a radio inter-
view, follow two recent cryptic
statements by Premier
Shimon Peres which both
seemed to hold out the hope of
imminent progress on the
Soviet Jewry question.
Peres made one such state-
ment at a Labor Party meeting
in Tel Aviv, and the second at
a session of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee in Jerusalem.
Peres told the Committee he
hoped for "developments" but
that he would not elaborate
"for obvious reasons."

statements to the recent

man, president of the Worl
Jewish Congress. The viatl
