All of the presidents of the
Approximately 200 local
Jewish organizations in nor-
hern Palm Beach County
ave been invited to attend a

ference on the Middle East at
Je Hyatt Palm Beaches on

The event will focus around

kons with Florida Governor
Graham, United States

cues relating to Israel can be
resented to the media and
overnment officials in a
psitive way. Noting that the
pncerns of the media and
r officials are often dif-
pnt than those of the pro-
Israel Jewish community, Rat-
tinger said, "We have to

Developing Organizational
Cooperation Into a Unified
Community will concentrate
on fostering effective network-
ing between the various local
Jewish organizations. Here the
attempt will be made to get the
local leaders to know one
another and more about com-
munity projects of interest to
all pro-Israel organizations.
Ideas and information will be
shared so that contacts and
resources amongst par-
ticipants can be cultivated.
"Our county has gotten so big
that we need to make a con-
certed effort to interface
quickly and accurately," com-
mented Rattineer.
The third workshop, Ter-
rorism and the Campaign to
Discredit Israel, will feature a
speaker from the American
Israel Public Affairs Commit-
tee (AIPAC) and will examine
the aims and techniques of ter-
rorism and how terrorism can
be dealt with by our local
Jewish community and by our
government leaders. The cam-
paign to discredit Israel, a
more insidious but equally
dangerous form of activity,
will also be investigated. "Our
people must have a better
understanding that there is
such a campaign, and they
need to feel prepared to res-
pond with some facts and con-
vincing arguments,"

In addition to the
workshops, Governor Graham
will speak in the morning;
Senator Hawkins will address
the group at a luncheon, and
Congressman. Smith will close
the conference in the after-
noon. Dr. Rattinger stressed
that following these presenta-
tions question-and-answer ses-
sions will allow these govern-
ment leaders to learn about
our community's concerns
regarding the Middle East,
while providing the local
leadership with information on
the status of Israel and the
Middle East at the state and
federal level.
Dr. Rattinger added that the
Israel Task Force of the Com-

extremely active group of ap-
proximately 25 committed
citizens who share their time
and energy by contributing
their knowledge of Israel and
working with different local
and national pro-Israel groups.
"We've also been on the

Although the Mid-East
leadership conference is by in-
vitation only, those interested
in learning more about the
Israel Task Force or the Com-

asked to call the Federation of-

'No Problem'
Says Gorbachev of Soviet Jews
PARIS (JTA) Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev believes that there is no
Jewish problem in the Soviet Union and that "nowhere else in the entire world
do Jews enjoy such extensive political and other rights as they do in the USSR."
Gorbachev, in Paris for a four-day visit, his first trip to a Western country
since he rose to power, said in an interview with French television: "Nowhere do
Jews have as many rights as they have here (in the Soviet Union)."
Gorbachev said, stressing every syllable as if he had well prepared the reply
to this particular touchy question, "The Jewish population represents 0.69 per-
cent of our total population, but they represent 10 to 20 percent of those (playing
an active role) in the political and cultural process."
The Soviet leader, who devoted some 10 minutes of his time to answering
this particular question, added, "if there is a problem of (family) reunions, we ac-
cept this (problem^ and we solve these problems (by granting permission for
such reunions)." Gorbachev added:
"We refuse such permission only where state secrets are involved. Even
these people (who know state secrets) are given the possibility to wait five or 10
years. If then they want to leave to rejoin their families (abroad), we grant them
the necessary authorizations and the people leave."
Gorbachev said, "We shall continue to calmly pursue this humane policy, and
we shall continue to solve these problems, as well as the problem of mixed mar-
riages and that of family reunions."
Turning to the specific issue of imprisoned dissidents and refuseniks, Gor-
bachev said, "In such a vast country as the Soviet Union, it is obvious that some

Explosion Rocks Jewish School In Buenos
BUENOS AIRES (JTA) Early on Oct. 2 a bomb
went off in one of the buildings of the Sholom Aleichem
Jewish School complex, the World Jewish Congress
reported here last week.
According to the Latin American Branch of the WJC, ex-
tensive property damage resulted, but no one was injured.
A preliminary evaluation by authorities indicates that the
explosive device used was a powerful one. No persons or
organizations have yet claimed responsibility for the
Jewish Quarter in Tunis Under Heavy Guard
PARIS (JTA) Tunisian army and police units were
called out recently to patrol near the former Jewish quarter
in Tunis where many of Tunisia's remaining 5,000 Jews
still live. Armored cars were stationed at strategic points,
and helicopters hovered overhead after hundreds of angry
youths tried earlier in the day to stage an anti-Israel and
anti-American demonstration.
The Tunisian radio said that the would-be demonstrators
ran through the city center shouting "Israeli killers" and
"revenge. '
International Jewish Organization Condemns
OTAWA (JTA) The Commonwealth Jewish Council,
an organization representing Jewish communities in 26
British Commonwealth countries, condemned the apar-
theid policy of South Africa in a statement issued at a press
conference at the conclusion of its annual conference held
The statement, a resolution passed during the two-day
conference, expressed the Council's "abhorrence and con-
demnation of the practice" and congratulated the South
African Jewish Board of Deputies for its recent resolution
rejecting apartheid. Greville Janner, Council president and
a British Labor Party member of Parliament, described the
South African Jewish community's resolution as a
"courageous move" in view of the circumstances.
Shamir and Netanyahu Explain. Tunisian Raid
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir of Israel told the UN General Assembly
recently that Israel attacked Palestine Liberation
Organization bases in Tunisia "after it became evident that
the terrorists were mounting attacks from Tunisia with
He recalled the murder of three Israelis in Larnaca,
Cyprus on Yom Kippur day and said that in recent months
the PLO headquarters in Tunisia was also responsible for a
number of sea-borne attempts against Israel which were
foiled by the Israel Navy.
"We had no intention of attacking Tunisia, although this
country has permitted terrorist bases to exist on its soil,"
Shamir declared. "We acted against murderous criminals
in order to prevent the continuation of their criminal acts."
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's Ambassador to the UN,
told the Security Council that the Israeli attack was a
response to increasing terrorist attacks, organized and
directed by the PLO.
The envoy claimed that the Israeli attack was a "strike
aimed at the culprits, and at the culprits alone." He said
that "any civilian casualties were wholly inadvertent and
unintentional, and the result of the deliberate PLO tactic of
planting its bases among civilians. Civilians, let us
remember, are the key to PLO's strategy. They kill
civilians and they hide behind them."
Polish Gov't. Will Observe
35th Year of Yiddish Theater
polish government will observe
the 35th anniversary of the
Jewish State Theater, the Yiddish
theater in Warsaw, with a series
of commemorative events at the
beginning of December, Stephan
Grayek, chairman of the World
Federation of Polish Jews,
reported here on his return from
Poland recently.
The Jewish State Theater was
founded shortly after World War
II when surviving Jewish actors
returned to Poland from concen-
tration camps and from the Soviet
Union. It is named in memory of
Esther Rah el Kaminska, the
famous actress known as the
mother of the Yiddish theater.
A 20-member delegation of
Israeli writers, actors and public
figures will go to Warsaw for the
ceremonies. With them will be
three members of the Habimah
Theater Shmuel Rodensky,
Shmuel Atzmon and Shmulik
Segal. They will appear in a pro-
gram based on the writings of
Sholom Aleichem.
Some of the thousands of demonstrators
who congregated at a rally in Givatayim to
demonstrate against Knesset Member Meir
Kahane of the Kach Party. The
demonstrators shouted, shrieked and
booed in order to drown out every word
Kahane spoke. Some 450 police and border
police equipped with helmets, shields and
clubs tried to maintain order.
No More Visas?
Rabbi Kahane Loses U.S. Citizenship
Kahane, of Israel's controversial right-
wing Kach Party, has been stripped ofhis
U.S. citizenship. State Department
sources here said that the Brooklyn,
N.Y.-born Kahane lost his citizenship
because he is a member of Israel's
Knesset and is therefore no longer entitl-
ed to dual nationality.
In issuing its certificate of loss of na-
tionality, the State Department explained
that Kahane had expatriated himself ef-
fective Aug. 13, 1984, by assuming'his
seat in the Knesset.
On a visit to the United States last
month, Kahane declared that he hadjiot
given up his American citizenship because
he believed he would have difficulty ob-
taining a visa. He emigrated to Israel 14
years ago.

At the beginning of the
weekend, Turell and some friends

here as Ofra was interred Sunday
next to her father, Yochai Gelad,
who had been killed 12 years
earlier during the Yom Kippur
War launched by an Egyptian
sneak attack in 1973.
Official Egyptian explanations
for the massacre are that a police
officer went berserk and opened
fire on the proup of Israeli
campers at Ras Burka, a Sinai
camping site 25 miles south of the
Israel-Egypt border.
According to these explana-
tions, the policeman also fired at
fellow Egyptians and was finally
subdued and captured.
leaders, including former Defense
Minister Moshe Arens, are not
buying the Egyptian explana
tions. Arens has suggested that
the eunman was an Egyptian
soldier, and not a police officer at
all. Under the Camp David accord,
Egypt is forbidden to post soldiers
in the Sinai.
Another former Defense
Minister, Ariel Sharon, has also
expressed skepticism. Both he and
Arens are now being joined by
Israelis everywhere who have
since been infuriated by reports
from an eyewitness according to
whom the Egyptians left the
wounded victims untouched for
hours and also refused to allow
other Israelis to come to their aid.
Dvora Vadia, of Jerusalem, who
was at the campsite but not in-
volved in the shooting, told Israel
Radio that the Israelis were
threatened with death if they ap-
proached the nearby hillside
where the shootings took place.
"Time was passing and nobody
took care of them (the victims),"
Vadia said. "We were there for
two hours and (there was) no help,
no ambulance, nothing. They were
our friends, and we were helpless.
We couldn't do anything. We
could have saved them."

Administration Needs
Mist Out of Its Eyes
When Jordan's King Hussein and Egypt's
President Mubarak came to Washington and
the United Nations recently, everyone tend-
ed to regard their presence through misty
eyes of hope for peace at the same time that
they clutched the King's hand in Ad-
ministration assent to sell Jordan
sophisticated weapons costing as much as
$1.9 billion, including:
40 advanced fighters;
108 Stinger surface-to-air missiles;
12 Improved Hawk surface-to-air missile
other upgrades to enhance the lethal
power of Jordan's existing Improved
300 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles;
32 M-3 Bradley cavalry fighting
Somehow, the arms sale seemed to set the
seal of a promise that the King was finally
prepared to talk turkey. The turkey,
however, may well turn out to be little more
than a shell game.
No New Initiative
It is now clear that what Hussein offered
was little different from what both he and
Mubarak brought to Washington last spring,
and that the so-called "defensive" air
package to Jordan threatens the very basis
of Israel's security by providing Jordan with
offensive weapons that undermine the cor-
nerstone of Israel's single edge of survival,
its air superiority.
This is a major issue because Israel does
not have enough soldiers to guard its long
and vulnerable borders, and so it depends
upon a small standing army supported by a
large number of reservists. Israel's Air
Force has the critical and difficult task of
protecting the country while the reservists
are being mobilized.
What is more, military logistics apart for
the moment if that is possible, events of the
last two weeks show just how "friendly"
King Hussein is so far as that peace package
is concerned that he and Mubarak brought
to President Reagan at the end of
September. And how equally guilty of
cupidity the President and the Administra-
tion are in listening sympathetically to the
King's request for a "defensive" air package
indeed, in sending the President's request
for annroval of the air package to Capitol
Hill recently before the King really
gets down to talking about peace with
Israel, no more fooling around.
Jordan Hosts Arafat
The painful fact is that Jordan today, once
again, is playing host to Yasir Arafat and
the Palestine Liberation Organization.
From Jordan and the PLO base there have
come the orders that set into motion 18
separate terrorist murders of Israelis since
last August alone.
This includes the murders of three Israelis
by the Force 17 unit of the PLO. Two of
them Mordechai Suissa and Edna Harari
were shot to death in a hillside pine grove
six miles southwest of Jerusalem. The third
was Haim Falah, a farmer from Migdal
Force 17 is a commando unit that is
reported to be unswervingly loyal to PLO
Chief Yasir Arafat.
Smith On The Smith Amendment
In August, the President
signed into law the first
foreign assistance authoriza-
tion bill since 1981 which in-
cludes an amendment that will
have an important effect upon
U.S. foreign policy in the Mid-
dle East.
The amendment, which I
sponsored, clearly states the
opposition of Congress to any
sale to Jordan of advanced
weapons until there is signifi-
cant progress in the peace^o-
cess. It declares that if the
President submits to Congress
a Jordanian arms sale of ad-
vanced aircraft or new air
defense systems, he also must
certify Jordan's public commit-
ment to the recognition of
Israel and its commitment to
negotiate promptly and direct-
ly with Israel under the basic
tenets of UN Security Resolu-
tions 242 and 338.
This certification is not like
the one for progress in human
rights in El Salvador where
the Administration had great
latitude in detailing com-
pliance with recognized human
rights. It does not allow broad
generalizations about general
progress. It requires Jordan's
public commitment to
recognize Israel and to enter
into prompt and direct
negotiations before Congress
will consider such a controver-
sial arms sale.
King Hussein must bring
Jordan further into the peace
process before the President
can issue a certification. The
call for an international con-
ference and no concrete
timetable for direct negotia-
tions with Israel prevents the
Presdient today from being
able to certify progress
towards peace. In addition,
Jordan must openly recognize
Israel's right to coexist
peacefully, and it must publicly
end the state of belligerency.
Furthermore, the King must
agree to direct and prompt
negotiations with Israel. He
cannot call for an international
conference while the U.S. and
Israel both reject one. In addi-
tion, the King's insistence on
including the Syrians and
Soviets would only hinder
The King's call for an inter-
national conference, his con-
tinued refusal to renounce the
state of war between Jordan
and Israel, and the lack of a
definite timetable for ne

Israel And South Africa?
Mayor Ed Koch of New
York was acting like, well, Ed
Koch when he went over to the
United Nations on Sept. 19.
The Mayor, who has been
known to refer to the world
body as a "cesspool," testified
before a UN panel on apar-
theid. Koch compared apar-
theid to Nazi Germany's racial
laws and called on local and na-
tional governments to adopt
sanctions against Pretoria.
But Koch did not stop with
condemnation of apartheid.
When Stanislav Menshikov, a
Soviet representative who is
an adviser to the Central Com-
mittee of the Communist Par-
ty of the USSR, asked Koch
for details on what New York
City is doing to oppose apar-
theid, Koch responded with a
list of the measures New York
has implemented. But he*
followed that with a blast. "I
happen to think that the Soviet
Union is comparable to the
Republic of South Africa, in
terms of what it does (to) so

Arms vs. Peace
The Administration is
describing the Jordan arms
package as "an integral part"
of the peace process, and put-
ting out the line that a Con-
gressional vote against it
would "almost certainly spell
failure" for the effort to pro-
duce direct negotiations bet-
ween Jordan and Israel.
But the truth is the very op-
posite. The arms sale is not
part of the peace process, but
the antithesis of it. Rejection
of it by Congress will not im-
pede the peace process, but
may indeed be a necessity if
the peace process is to have
any prospect of success.
Congressional rejection of
the arms package is essential
to the peace process for two
reasons: First, a military
buildup in Jordan Israel's
closest neighbor will further
erode Israel's margin of
security and increase the im-
portance of vital strategic
tepth on the West Bank. As
Hirsh Goodman, a leading
Israeli journalist, put it "If
the Reagan Administration
goes ahead with its intention
to supply Hussein with
weapons as a prize for ob-
duracy even the most
determined Israeli dove will
have a hard time countering
the skepticism and cynicism
that such a decision must
generate The U.S. must
recognize that weapons sup-
plied independent of any
movement toward peace are
essentially the means of war."
Going ahead with the Jordan
arms sale under today's condi-
tions will weaken the Govern-
ment of Israel led by Shimon
Peres and its ability to accept
risks in the peace process.
Second, the arms sale will
have an adverse impact on Jor-
dan's position in the peace pro-
cess. For this process to have
any prospect of success, King

Relief In Sight For Israel Bond Holders
Israel Bond holders may be
relieved to learn that their
failure to declare interest they
never earned will probably not
be considered a violation of
U.S. tax law.
The House Ways and Means
Committee recently approved
legislation that would exempt
holders of Israel Bonds from a
provision of the 1984 Deficit
Reduction Act requiring
lenders to pay tax on the full
amount of interest that would
accure if the loans were made
at prevailing market rates.
The "imputed interest provi-
sion" was aimed against those
who make artificially low-
interest loans as a legal means
of tax evasion. Before the
legislation, for example,
wealthy parents could extend
large amounts of money to
their children in order to ex-
ploit the latter's lower tax
If Israel Bonds are not ex-
empted from the 1984 act,
holders would be required to
pay tax on more income than
they actually earn. A holder of
a $1,000 bond, for example,
would earn $40 at the bond's
interest rate of four percent.
But he would be required to
report the $100 in interest in-
come he could have received if
the bond had been issued at
the current approximate
market rate of 10 percent.
However, the House Ways
and Means Committee approv-
ed a proposal sponsored by
Rep. Charles Rangel (D., N.Y.)
to exempt Israel Bonds from
the 1984 law. Similar legisla-
tion has been introduced in the
Senate Finance Committee by
Pete Wilson (R., Cal.).
"It is clear that Congress
never intended to include
Israel Bonds in this particular
tax law change, but today's ac-
tion by the Ways and Means
Committee makes that crystal
clear," Charles Schumer (D.,
N.Y.), a cosponsor of the
House bill, said here.
"No one buys Israel Bonds
as a tax shelter," Schumer ad-
ded. American Jews and
others buy these bonds out of il
sense of devotion to the State
of Israel, and they do so with
full understanding that thev
will get a relatively low rate of
return for their investment I
There is no reason that thev]
should actually be penalized
because they chose this form
of philanthropy."
Schumer stressed th|
failure to exempt the bondi
would discourage taxpayers
from buying them.
Passage by the full House!
and Senate exempting Israel
Bonds from the Deficit Reduc
tion Act appears to be essen-
tially a matter of time. But, ac-
cording to an aide in
Schumer's office, it could get!
bogged down in a debate over
controversial tax reform
legislation if a general tax
reform bill is used as the con-
text for the bonus exemption.
The aide, however, added thatj
the House would always haveJ
the option of passing' t\
separate bill on the Israel
Bonds question.
Weizmann Institute Claims
Breakthrough In Battle Against AIDS
Researchers at the Weizmann
Institute of Science at Rehovot
claim a breakthrough in the
battle against AIDS, the killer
disease. The new development
involves the isolation and syn-
thesization of a hormone link-
ed with the immunological
Prof. Natan Trainin, a
cancer researcher in the In-
stitute's cellular biology
department, has been working
on cancer and immunology
research for the past 20 years,
dealing with a hormone known
as THF (thymus humoral fac-
tor) found naturally in minute
quantities in the thymus gland.
The hormone was synthesiz-
ed some six months ago by
Prof. Yigal Bornstein, who has
been working with Trainin for
the past seven years. Borns-
tein says that organic THF has
been administered to some 100
cases of immunity deficiency in
Israel since 1975, including
two cases of AIDS (acquired
immune deficiency syndrome),
with generally positive results.
But he stressed that no con-
trolled study has yet been
made, owing to the insufficient
number of potential patients
available in Israel.
Bornstein says that in
regard to the two AIDS cases
studied in Israel, one, a
20-year-old male, had made a
partial recovery of his immune
defenses, the first such case
known. This victim was in the
early stages of AIDS, which he
had acquired from blood
received from abroad to treat
his hemophilia. He was given
the biological THF. not the
synthetic kind, and has
recovered sufficiently to be
discharged from the Beilinson
The second, older, patient
returned to Israel from the
U.S. where he had acquired
AIDS, but was in the final
stages of the disease. After
treatment with the biological
THF, his immune system im-
Eroved slightly, but he died
iter of complications. Borns-
tein says that the youth was
the first AIDS case stopped by
external treatment.

keep the pressure on the Arab

people are in disagreement with the Soviet regime and with Socialism. This is
their business. Trouble starts when they try to present the facts in a way liable to
hurt the Soviet Union, when they try to undermine its authority, or when they
act contrary to our laws."
With respect to Anatoly Sharansky, who is serving a 13-year prison term on
charges of espionage on behalf of the United States, Gorbachev said, "In his
specific case, this is what we have in mind. He has acted against our laws. We
don't want to reveal certain things to the public, but he has transgressed the
(Soviet) Law."
Intellectuals, university professors and the families of detained activists held
indoor press conferences and meetings permitted by the police. They took large
advertisements in the press calling for the release of the imprisoned dissidents
and Jewish activists. Nobel Laureate in Mathematics Laurent Schwartz explain-
ed their position on television, shortly before Gorbachev's arrival.
"The Soviet Union must understand that it cannot have a policy of scientific
or technical cooperation with the Western world unless it changes its policy of
repression." Schwartz, who heads a French committee for the liberation of
Sharansky, said, "Western intellectuals will refuse to cooperate with you, even if
our own governments adopt a different decision, as long as people such as
Sakharov and Sharansky are still imprisoned."

Israel and South Africa?
Continued from Page 4-
The place to start is the "set-
tler state" charge. One anti-
Israel pamphlet distributed on
many campuses is called
"Internal Control in Israel and
South Africa: The Mechanisms
of Colonial-Settler Regimes"
(by Christopher Mansour and
Richard Stevens). In the case
of South Africa, the pamphlet
correctly points out that white
Europeans immigrated to
South Africa 300 years ago
and that they came to exploit
the land and the native popula-
tion. It makes no parallel case
that Israel is a settler state
(other than to state it
repeatedly) because the case is
impossible to make.
Jews have lived in Palestine
or Israel for over 3,000 years.
Independent Jewish states ex-
isted there from 1200 BC to
586 BC, from 538 BC to 332
BC, from 165 BC to 37 BC,
from 37 BC to 70 AD, and
since 1948 in our time.
Moreover, in the period bet-
ween 70 AD and 1948, there
was never a period or even a
day in which Jews did not
live in Israel or Palestine.
Moreover, in the years prior to
1948, no people other than the
Jews have recognized Israel or
Palestine as a separate entity
or sought independence there.
Throughout history,
Palestine's Arab population
merely considered it to be just
another part of the Arab world
one with no special
There is one simple way of
explaining the difference bet-
ween a "colonial-settler"
regime and Israel. In South
Africa, any archeologist digg-
ing below the 300 year level
will find only artifacts of the
native black culture. In Israel,
archeologists routinely
recover items of every sort
dating back two and three
thousand years. These items
often carry inscriptions in-
scriptions in Hebrew. Any
Israeli child can read the Dead
Sea scrolls which date back to
the first century BC. The same
Israeli child lives on land which
Jews farmed thousands of
years ago. In Jerusalem,
Israelis can shop on the Cardo,
a street which serves as a
Jewish-quarter shopping mall
today as it did at the time of
Jesus. Israel is no colonial im-
plant. It has a historical birth
certificate at least as valid as
any state in the world. That is
the first place where the South
Africa analogy collapses.

Hijackers in Italian Custody
Continued from Page 1
forced to land in Sicily, U.S.
Administration and State
Department officials express-
ed outrage over the apparent
deal to free the hostages,
worked out primarily by the
Egyptian government, which
included safe passsage for the
hijackers. While the
whereabouts of the terrorists
was uncertain during the day
on Oct. 10, U.S. officials
demanded the maximum
punishment for the terrorists.
Before the killing of Kl-
inghoffer was discovered,
Italian Foreign Minister An-
dreotti praised the negotiating
efforts of Palestinian Libera-
tion Organization chief Yasser
Arafat, but upon learning of
the American passenger's
death, Andreotti demanded
the extradition of the hijackers
to Italy.
During the interview with
Ted Koppel on Oct. 10, when
the hijackers were reportedly
in the hands of the PLO,
Arafat claimed to be "very
sorry" that the incident had
occurred. He pledged to
"investigate" the hijacking
and ''punish'' the
perpetrators, while promising
to cooperate fully with the
Italian government.
At that time, however,
Israeli officials were highly
skeptical of Arafat's alleged
role as peacemaker, judge and

Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, calling Arafat "one of
the biggest liars on earth,"
suggested that the terrorists'
intended target was the Israeli
port of Ashdod, but that the hi-
jackers had blundered by
revealing themselves too
Israeli Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir expressed cer-
tainty that the criminals would
not have been punished if they
had remained in the hands of
the PLO.
The Israeli government also
voiced suspicion that Arafat
himself had foreknowledge of
the Achille Lauro hijacking.
Some government officials felt
that the whole affair was a
public relations ploy to make
Arafat appear more moderate
in the eyes of Western leaders.
Before the plane with.the hi-
jackers on board was in-
tercepted, Foreign Minister
Shamir said that the apparent
escape of the terrorists would
lead to a further increase in in-
ternational terrorism, and he
called on the United States to
initiate a "permanent,
organized fight to combat
terrorist activity.
Whether or not the United
States reacted specifically to
Shamir's challenge, decisive
action was taken. The Egyp-
tian plane carrying the Palesti-
nian hijackers was intercepted
and ordered to land without a
single shot being fired. This
flexing of American muscle
came after repeated verbal
threats against terrorism by
the Administration.
At a late-night White House
briefing on Thursday, Oct. 10,
spokesman Larry Speakes
thanked Italy and Egypt for
their cooperation, but he ad-
mitted that the Administration
was angry with the Egyptian
government for their soft
negotiating stance which
allowed for the hijackers' free
passage out of Egypt. "We
were deeply distressed to
learn that these terrorists
might be permitted to go
free," said Speakes.
Speakes also expressed the
President's gratitude to the
government of Tunisia, which
refused landing rights to the
Egyptian plane.
According to Speakes, the
U.S. was planning to seek ex-
tradition of the terrorists, but
it was uncertain whether or
not Italian authorities would
claim the right to prosecute
the prisoners in their own
court system first.

The High Holidays have
come and gone, but for many
single-parent families in our
community the spirit of those
solemn moments may linger
and a new sense of their
membership in the Jewish
community may be emerging,
thanks to the action of the
Single Parent Committee of
trie Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County and the
response by local synagogues.
When the committee's re-
quest for High Holiday ticket
donations from local temples
and synagogues was made, no
one expected the response to
be so overwhelming. Over 200
tickets were received at the
Jewish Community Center by
Bonnie Altman, who was in
charge of ticket distribution.
Forty-five single-parent
families took advantage of the
opportunity, with 85 people
overall, including many
children, participating.
In an effort to encourage
better communication between
unaffiliated single parents and
local houses of worship, Mrs.
Altman followed up ticket
distributions with letters to
the membership chairmen of
the synagogues chosen by the
families receiving tickets.
Mrs. Altman also tried to put
the unaffiliated single parents
in contact with single parents
who were affiliated, in an at-
tempt to make everyone feel
more comfortable.
"On the whole, temples and
rabbis were pleased with the
program, and a lot of informa-
tion about temple membership
was disseminated as a result,'
said Mrs. Altman.
The program was also a suc-
cess from the point of view of
the single parents. All who
were contacted after the High
Holidays said that the pro-
gram was a wonderful idea,
and Donna Kepnes added.
"My children really enjoyed it;
it's one of the best things the
Single Parent Committee and
local temples have ever done."
Linda Elias, the member of
the Single Parent Committee
in charge of the ticket dona-
tion program, said she was
"very, very pleased that we
had such an enthusiastic
response from the synagogues
and that so many families ask-
ed for tickets."
Both Mrs. Altman and Mrs.
Elias noted that many cor-
relative positive results came
out of the program. For exam-
ple, at least pne synagogue of-
fered free membership to a
needy single-parent family,
and another temple offered to
open up its religious and Sun-
day school programs to
children of single parents in
The Single Parent Commit-
tee, however, is not going to
rest on the laurels of this past
year's success. "There are
more single parent families put
there that we're not
reaching," observed Rabbi
Howard Shapiro, chairman of
the Single Parent Committee.
It is hoped that next year's
outreach effort will be even
more effective.
Those involved in this year's
High Holiday ticket donation
program agree that a
cooperative, two-way
endeavor is needed to enfran-
chise more single parent
families in the community.
Local temples and
synagogues need to increase
their outreach efforts and of-
fer educational, social and
financial programs to attract
the unfortunately growing
number of single-parent
families. Conversely, single
parents and their children
need to commit thmselves
emotionally, spiritually, and,
to some degree, financially to
involvement in the religious
and cultural aspects of Jewish
For many single-parent
families, money is the botton
line. "While being restricted
by a one-parent income, single
parents also want their

Soviet Jewry to be high on his
agenda in meetings with
Soviet leader Gorbachev in

the President know that his
determination to push the
issue of Soviet Jewish freedom
with Soviet leaders has our
support. Therefore, we urge
you to send Utters of commen-
dation to President Reagan

calling for the release of Soviet
Jewish Prisoners of Cons-

Soviet Jews to emigrate to

should be informed that it is
unlikely that the American
people will trust the Soviet

fecting the vital security of
both countries while the
Soviets persist in violations of
the human rights provisions of

Plans Advance For
Holocaust Museums
Plans continue to advance in
the nation's capital and in New
York City for memorials to the
Holocaust and for facilities
duplicated to studies of the
tragic past.
Plans for a $30 million
Holocaust museum and ar-
chive were presented to Con-
gress by the United States
Holocaust Memorial Council
The red granite building
would replace two government
buildings that was constructed
as annexes to the Auditors
Building. The plans were
described to the House Ap-
propriations Committee's In-
terior Subcommittee by
USHMC vice chairman Mark
E. Talisman.
The architect, George Not-
ter, said that the historic
buildings did not contain
enough space for the museum,
and their condition was so poor
that it would be very expensive
to renovate them.
Expected to open in 1989,
the proposed five-story
museum would include space
for exhibitions, archives, con-
ference rooms, cafeteria, and
administrative offices. Mr.
Talisman said that to cover the
building of the museum and
operating expenses, a $100
million Campaign to
Remember is underway to
raise private fundings.
The Council has requested
an appropriation of $1.95
million for fiscal 1986 to con-
tinue historical research to
develop museum programs.
A new site has been offered
and approved for a New York
City Holocaust Museum.
A new apartment building at
Battery Park City in Manhat-
tan will replace the U.S.
Custom House, also in
Manhattan, as the site for a
memorial that will include a
museum, archives, and library.
New York State Governor
Mario Cuomo offered the
replacement for the Customs
House that was opposed by
many preservationists as too
ornate and better suited for a
cultural and educational
According to Meyer S.
Frucher, president of the Bat-
tery Park City Authority, the
Holocaust Commission would
be renamed the New York Ci-
ty/New York State Holocaust
Memorial Commission. In ad-
dition to the Holocaust
memorial, the facility would
have a separate State Museum
"dedicated to the New York
immigrant experience,"
Governor Cuomo said.
Groundbreaking is expected
in the fall of 1986.
An American soldier carry-
ing a survivor out of a concen-
tration camp is depicted in the
monument "Liberation" at
Liberty State Park in Jersey
City, N.J. Nathan Rappoport's
15-foot, 2-ton monument was
dedicated before a gathering
of 3,000.
"The soldier has no gun .
the soldier is gentle and com-
passionate. The victim is alive
and has hope; he has survived
the darkest hour," principal
speaker New Jersey Governor
Thomas H. Kean said.
In addition to the Governor
and Mr. Rappoport, among
others taking part in the
ceremonies were New Jersey's
U.S. Senator Frank R.
Lautenberg; Jersey City
Mayor Gerald McCann; Luna
Kaufman and David Kotok,
cochairpersons, Liberty Park
Monument Committee.
Senator Lautenberg, a
member of the U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Council, said he was
"very involved with the
memory of the Holocaust
because of his friendship with
many survivors. I admire their
resilience and courage," he
said. "They represent the
character and strength of
America and the strength of
the human spirit."

Topic Of TAU Meeting
Professor Yoram Dinstein,
Pro-Rector of Tel Aviv Univer-
sity and Professor of Interna-
tional Law, will speak at a
breakfast meeting of the
Seminar Associates of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University on Tuesday, Oct.
29. The topic to be addressed
by Prof. Dinstein is "Human
Rights in Israel in the Ad-
ministered Territories."
The meeting will be the first
of the 1985-86 season for the
Seminar Associates, a group
which will be holding several
discussion meetings with ex-
citing speakers from Israel's
and America's academic and
political worlds. The Seminar
Associates is a committed
group of individuals who share
the conviction that higher
education is the best means to
improve Israel's quality of life,
economic development, na-
tional security and search for
peace. Associates ar-' asked to
support Tel Aviv University
with a minimum annual
membership fee of
In addition to his current
duties as Pro-Rector, Prof.
Dinstein is Yanowicz Pro-
fessor of Human Rights and
the Editor of the Israel Year-
book on Human Rights. He is
also the former dean of Tel
Aviv University's Faculty of
Law, and he has held various
positions representing Israel
at the United Nations.
The local director of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University, Lauren Azoulai, is
preparing an exciting lineup of
speakers this year including
Dr. Edward Teller, an advisor
to President Reagan on the
United States 'Star Wars'
plans, and Senator Paula
Hawkins, an outspoken sup-
porter of Israel in the U.S.
Congress. s

But Defense Minister Yit-

he was confident that Egypt
would soon resume the talks
on the Taba border dispute
which it suspended in anger
over Israel action. Rabin in-
sisted that Israel was not aim-

Yasir Arafat or any other in-
dividual PLO leader.
Arafat's residence, among
the complex of buildings which
made up the PLO's military
and political headquarters at a
beach resort 20 miles south of
Tunis, was destroyed in the air
raid. But Arafat was not there
at the time. Mohammed
Natour, known as Abu Taef,

7 Not Know Hebrew,
I Want Learn' And
! Expert Answers
Friday, October 18, 1985/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 15
, Ben-Zion Fischler opens a
thick file of letters at
I random.
"I not know your
llanguage. I not know
I Hebrew. I want learn. I not
Ihave money," reads the
first, written by a 16-year-
lold Caribbean islander.
Fischler turns the page to
a letter in carefully printed
Hebrew, with a photograph
attached. It comes from a
Rumanian priest, who
teaches at a Rumanian
| Catholic seminary.
"Thank you for the material
you sent," he writes. "It's very
useful. This is a picture of the
synagogue. I took my Hebrew
students there for the exercise of
translating all the Hebrew on the
synagogue walls."
, THE PRIEST'S letter is
followed by a lengthy exchange
between Fischler and a Soviet
I language professor from a remote
area of Russia. "Dov is very in-
terested in your letters," writes
| the professor.
"We thought, at first, that Dov
- which is Hebrew for 'bear*
was a code word for the KGB, the
Soviet Secret Police, and that the
professor was giving us a veiled
warning," smiles Fischler. "But
Dov turned out to be a young Jew,
seeking contact with Israel. When
his father died, he wrote asking us
to have someone recite Kaddish.
Now, he tells us, he's applied for a
I visa to Israel."
There are two questions that
Fischler never asks his cor-
respondents. One is whether they
are Jewish. The second is why
they want to learn Hebrew.
"If you're Jewish and you learn
Hebrew whether it's 500 words
or 5,000 you're linked with
Jews all over the world," he says.
"If you're not Jewish, learning
Hebrew will give you a better
understanding of Jews."
FISCHLER. as director of the
World Zionist Organization's
Hebrew Language Division in the
Department of Education and
Culture in the Diaspora, operates
what he describes as a clearing
house for the Hebrew language.
His division evaluates printed and
audio-visual materials and keeps
teachers, students and some 600
university Hebrew departments
world-wide from Ghana and
Zaire to Costa Rica and Korea,
and behind the Iron Curtain in
touch with what is available.
When new immigrants come to
Israel, and turn for help to the
Jewish Agency, Fischler's unit
helps them get to first base: it
helps them learn Hebrew.
Language courses at absorption
centers of the Jewish Agency,
which receive most of its funds
from United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation Campaigns, are
among 1,200 it offers worldwide.
Some of its newer classes are
designed for UJA's Young
Leadership Cabinet.
"We also make shidduchim
(matches)," says Fischler. "When
professors from Kyoto, Japan,
and Nancy in France wrote telling
us they were working on Hebrew
word-processing, we made the
match, and they now maintain a
lively academic correspondence."

with the Hebrew Language began

N.Y. Times Man Adolph Ochs Joins Jewish Hall of Fame
Jewish-American Hall of Fane
Adolph Ochs (1858-1935),
who has been chosen as the
1985 inductee of the Jewish-
American Hall of Fame,
strongly influenced his and
future generations as
publisher of one of the most
highly regarded and influen-
tial newspapers in the world
|- The New York Times.
:: -'
His influence was also felt as a
prominent Southern leader
named "Citizen Emeritus" of
Chattanooga, Tenn., and as a
philanthropist head of Hebrew
Union College's endowment cam-
paign, and underwriter of the
monumental Dictionary of
American Biography. Following a
16-year tradition, a medal has
been commissioned in Ochs'
A REMARKABLY lifelike por-
trait has been created by Gerta
Ries Wiener, who in past years
sculpted memorable likenesses of
Hall of Fame inductees Louis
Brandeis (1971), Golda Meir
(1978), Isaac Stern (1982) and
Emma Lazarus (1983). The
medal's reverse design features a
scene at an urban newsstand in
the early 1900's, encircled by
"The New York Times" in its Old
English typeface, plus the famous
motto that first appeared in 1897:
"All the News That's Fit to
Sponsor is the Magnes Museum
of Berkeley, Calif.
While Ochs' formal education
was sketchy, he described his
work at the Knoxville (Tennessee)
Chronicle as his "high school and
university." Beginning as office
boy in 1869 at the age of 11, he
was soon promoted to delivery
boy at a weekly salary of a dollar
and a half. From that time until
his death in 1935, Ochs never left
the newspaper business.
In 1877, while still a teen-ager,
Ochs helped to establish the Chat-
tanooga Dispatch, and then took
over the faltering Chattanooga
Times with a borrowed invest-
ment of $250. It then had a cir-
culation of only 250 copies.
BY APPLYING the principles
of independence, fairness and
civic responsibility that he was
later to make the standards of The
New York Times, Ochs developed
it into one of the leading
newspapers in the South. He was
a founder of the Southern
Associated Press and its chairman
from 1891 to 1894. For 35 years
Ochs served as a director of the
Associated Press.
At the age of 38, Ochs took on
the task of reviving the
financially-ailing New York
Times. He insisted on a clean,
upright and impartial approach to
the news. After only three years
of his leadership, The Times show-
ed a profit. Ochs purchased con-
trolling interest in 1900. Starting
with a circulation of 9,000, The
New York Times at the time of
Ochs' death sold almost a half
million copies daily and nearly
three-quarters of a million copies
each Sunday. Ochs had made it
one of the greatest newspapers in
the world.
Born in Cincinnati, the eldest of
six children of German-Jewish im-
migrants, Ochs' family soon mov-
ed to Tennessee, where he re-
mained for the next quarter-
century. Besides his newspaper
ventures, Ochs created Chat-
tanooga's first city directory, set-
ting the type, proof-reading and
printing it entirely by himself.
PERHAPS HIS contributions
to the local area are best summed
up by the words on a bronze pla-
que hanging in the Adolph Ochs
Observatory and Museum on
Lookout Mountain, established on
the site of the Civil War battles of
Chickamauga and Missionary
Ridge through the efforts and
generosity of the young publisher:

Keeping Cool
In The Face Of Terror
There is something horribly
reminiscent of Lebanon on the
West Bank and in Gaza these
days. Troops patrolling the
streets, weapons at the ready;
armored personnel-carriers
posted at strategic intersec-
tions of towns and villages.
Again there is the spectre of
house-to-house searches, of
curfews, arrests and road-
The troops doing the job are
the same young men who
fought in Lebanon, who for
three years were nurtured on
suspicion in an environment of
hatred. For many of those now
patrolling the West Bank and
Gaza, Lebanon was their only
operational experience. They
were taught not to take
chances; that survival depend-
ed on assuming the worst.
Very few of these soldiers,
ironically born at about the
time Israel became Greater
Israel, speak Arabic. Yet they
have to impose the curfews,
shut down the shops and check
the papers of local residents.
Commanders in the field
have been ordered by their
seniors to keep on stressing to
the young paratroops that
they are not in Lebanon, but in
their own back-yard. That they
are protecting not only Israelis
and Israeli objectives from the
consequences of terror, but the
local inhabitants as well, the
vast majority of whom are vic-
tims of the situation, not the
creators of it.
But theory and reality are
not always uniform. Judea,
Samaria and Gaza may not be
Lebanon, but the danger from
a bomb or a grenade is the
same as it was there, as is the
instinctive military reaction to
both. The local inhabitants
may be victims, but from the
average soldier's point of view
they are guilty until proven in-
nocent. The recent shootings
of Arab civilians both on the
West Bank and in Gaza are il-
lustrative of this, as is the fact
that the chief of general staff
ordered a series of investiga-
tions into charges of "brutal"
behavior by soldiers against
local inhabitants.
ACCORDING to those who
made the decision to send
front-line troops into Judea,
Samaria and Gaza in the last
week of August, there was no
alternative. The murder of an

of Hebrew expression. He
recognized that the Hebrew
language contained the potential
to help Jewish exiles from 102
lands become more united in the
future State of Israel and that the
language of the Bible would
become a cornerstone of Jewish
national rebirth.
UNSPOKEN FOR 1.700 years.
Hebrew may be the only language
in history that has been reborn
But a language so ancient that
Abraham spoke it to Isaac, needs
adaptation to the era of high
technology. For not only did the
language lack words for "com-
puter," "helicopter" and
"vacuum cleaner" it had no
words for even such everyday
items as pencil, newspaper, shirt
and sidewalk. The rebirth of
Hebrew into a living language is
one of the more spectacular
achievements of cultural and
linguistic history, and Fischler has
played a role in it for 38 years.
The Bible's 8,000 word
vocabulary has grown to 120,000
words in the century since the
scholar, Eliezer Ben Yehuda,
began to revive the language. To-
day the number of modern
Hebrew words increases by about
100 words a year. Part of his divi-
sion's job, says Fischler, is to en-
sure that innovations in Hebrew,
approved by Israel's Academy of
the Hebrew Language, are made
"We have active contact with
about 600 institutes worldwide, as
well as with innumerable students
and teachers who keep in touch
with us," said Fischler, "Every
six weeks or so, we circulate the
changes, so people can keep up
with new developments in
"Jews have a long memory, so
our language never truly died,"
reflected Fischler. Then he added
with a gleam, "It's only one exam-
ple of how we are tenacious."

SENIOR military sources
vociferously deny that the
decision to send in these troops
was a result of pressure from
Jewish settlers on the West
Bank. They insist that it was a
purely operational decision
designed to nip in the bud the
new phenomenon of brazen at-
tacks against Israelis.
When Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin met with a delega-
tion of settlers in the first
week of September, he made it
clear that settlement was one
issue and security another.
The minister totally rejected
a list of proposals tabled by the
settlers (a list that was, in-
cidentally, identical to the one
submitted to the Cabinet by
Ariel Sharon a few days
earlier), and made it clear that
he, not they, would decide how
best to deal with the problem.
He would not close down
Palestinian organizations and
newspapers as they demand-,
ed, he said, but would act only
against those persons who
were directly involved in in-
citement. Nor would he deny
inhabitants of the territories
recourse to the courts, as the
settlers demanded.
He would, however, take im-
mediate and uncompromising
action against the settlers if
they tried to set up private
Moreover, he told them, he
would do his utmost to prevent
Jewish attempts to populate
downtown Hebron. This was
not an answer to Arab terror,
he told them, but a catalyst for
more terror.
experts have been predicting a
sharp increase in terror
generally abroad (as in the
recent killings in Larnaca),
over the Lebanese border, and
in Israel it is the threat of in-
ternal terror that has the
defense establishment most
worried. Sporadic Katyusha
attacks across the border, and
even bloody murders like Lar-
naca's, do not have the same
profound political implications
that internal terror has.
Rabin's strategy for dealing
with internal terror was four-
fold: the injection of top-
quality troops into the ter-
ritories; pin-point action
against individuals suspected
of incitement, such as deporta-
tion and administrative ar-
rests; action against com-
munities where it is felt that
the local leaders are not doing
enough to curb the zealousness
of stone-throwing youths; and
an intensified intelligence ef-
fort to isolate troublemakers
and prevent terrorist acts
before they can take place.
An intensified intelligence
effort was possible and had
shown results, the minster told
journalists recently, primarily
because the IDF and the
security services were out of
Lebanon, and could devote
their attention to the ter-
ritories. As a result, over 70
percent of all internal terror
attacks in recent months have
resulted in arrest a figure
that has not gone unnoticed by
the terrorists themselves.
THERE IS no doubt in the
minds of defense experts that
the rise in terrorist activity in
the territories is a direct result
of the PLO's return to Jordan.
Tens of thousands of people
cross the bridges from Israel
into Jordan each year, and
many of them come into con-
tact with PLO operatives
while they are there. They br-
ing back with them ideology,
money, instructions and the
skills necessary to organize
cells andproduce rudimentary
bombs. The connection is weU
known. According to
authoritative sources there
have been dozens of cases in
recent months.
Israel is reported to have
transmitted a message to King
Hussein through the
Americans that there is a limit
to Israel's continued com-
placency over the development
of Jordan as a new base for
terror. It is not only terror im-
ported over the bridges that
disturbs Israel, but also a
series of recent attempts by
Yasser Arafat's wing of the
PLO, headquartered in Am-
man, to send into Israel highly-
trained terrorist squads with
orders to kill as many Israelis
as possible.
Three of these were stopped
recently two at sea, and one
on the Lebanese border. All

South County Receives
HUD Loan For Senior Housing |
Elected Officials Play Vital Role
The U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment (HUD) recently approved
a $5.7 million low-interest con-
struction loan for a 101-unit
congregate living facility to be
built by the South County
Jewish Federation.
The application to HUD was
sponsored by the South Coun-
ty Federation and the
Gulfstream Area Agency on
Aging, and the facility will be
built on 23 acres of land
donated to the Jewish Federa-
tion by Carole and Richard
Siemens. Scheduled for com-
pletion within two years, the
housing units will be open to
people of all races, religions
and ethnic groups in Palm
Beach County.
The efforts of 11th District
Congressman Dan Mica and
Senator Paula Hawkins were
instrumental in procuring the
loan, and according to South
County Federation executive
director Rabbi Bruce Warshal,
Congressman Tom Lewis,
whose 12th District consti-
tuents live north of Boca
Raton, was also an important
factor in the HUD approval.
All of the applications for
similar Section 202 loan
guarantees from Congressman
Lewis' district were derailed
along the bureaucratic
pathway to Washington, so
two weeks before HUD made
its decision the South County
Federation asked Lewis to ex-
ert whatever influence he
could on their behalf.
Rep. Tom Lewis
"Congressman Lewis

"He put as much pressure j
as he could; he was there \'

to 75 percent of the rental fej

Myra learned that funeral service
between Florida and New York was
less expensive than she thought.
Thanks toThe GUARDIAN PLANprogram.
Myra believed in being prepared.
That's why she looked into buying cemetery property in Florida
where she had retired. Her two sisters, her children and her grandchildren
still lived in the new York area. And if the truth be known, Myra would have
preferred to have funeral services held in Mew York. But she thought that
would cost too much.
Luckily Myra learned about The QUARDIAM PLAMthe insurance
funded, prearranged funeral program. She liked what she heard, so she
decided to talk to The GUARDIAN PLAN counselor. He told her about
RIVERSIDE and the other members of the guardian family of Jewish
and JEPPER who honor The QUARDIAM PLAM program in Florida and Mew
York. Myra decided that The QUARDIAM PLAM program would make things
a lot easier on her family up north.
So Myra settled all the details in advance with the help of her
counselor. Everything was arranged as she wished. And at a cost she felt
was right for her.
She feels better because now she has more time to concentrate
on living.
