Shin Bet Leaders Fear Condemnation
By Court Will Encourage Terrorists
Supreme Court's condemna-
tion of methods used by the
Shin Bet to obtain confessions
has resulted in widespread
reproach for the top secret
security agency which some of
its operatives fear will only en-
courage terrorists. The court
offered its criticism in a ruling
which overturned the 1981
conviction of former Israel
Defense Force officer Izat
Nafsu, who was serving an
18-year prison sentence for es-
pionage and treason. Nafsu
was found guilty by a military
tribunal on evidence provided
by the Shin Bet, also known as
GSS (General Security
high court, Nafsu, a Circas-
sian, charged the evidence was
fabricated and that his confes-
sion was extracted by illegal
means. The justices bore him
out and ordered his immediate
release from prison.
In an interview published in
Yediot Achronot the former
head of the GSS investigations
department, who is still known
only by his code name
"Pashosh." was quoted as say-
ing: "Nafsu is speaking the
truth about how we treated
him in the investigation ...
The investigation was con-
ducted quickly, like any in-
vestigation dealing with ter-
rorism ... We lied out of
necessity. However, there was
no falsification of testimony,
but neither was this an in-
vestigation conducted accor-
ding to law."
Pashosh stated further, ac-
cording to Yediot Achronot,
that the terrorists now know
the GSS is in disarray, "that
GSS investigators are not

broadened to include 1,000
new gifts. "But these are only

Over 1,000 family members,
friends, and colleagues of Vic-
tor Duke, who died May 11,
filled the sanctuary of Con-
gregation Anshei Sholom

Jewish Organizations Urge Shamir To
Spurn Deal Amending Law Of Return

leaders of 23 national Jewish
organizations protested
vigorously to Israel govern-
ment leaders and key members
of the Knesset late last month
against any political deal that
would give the Orthodox Chief
Rabbinate of Israel sole
authority to determine the
validity of conversions to
Judaism performed outside
A cabled message warning
that such a move "imperils the
unity of the Jewish people"
was signed by the heads of 21
religious and secular organiza-
tions in the United States.
Separate protests were lodged
by Hadassah and the Zionist
Organization of America.
THEY WERE prompted by
a report from Jerusalem that
Premier Yitzhak Shamir gave
his written promise to the
ultra-Orthodox Shas Party to
achieve within 60 days passage
by the Knesset of an amend-
ment to the Law of Return
which would require overseas
conversions to be approved by
the Chief Rabbinate.
Shamir's pledge was
reportedly in return for Shas'
promise to support Likud ef-
forts to block the Labor Party
from dissolving the Knesset
and calling early elections over
the issue of an international
conference for Middle East
peace which Labor supports
and Likud opposes.
The cabled message was
sent to Shamir and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres and to
eight Labor and Likud leaders
in the Knesset. It stated: "We
are profoundly disturbed by
news reports that a political
deal is being made to give the
Orthodox Rabbinate the power
to decide the legitimacy of con-
versions made abroad. The
Prime Minister Shamir
result would be to deny any
spiritual validity to those who
identify with the Reform, Con-
servative and Reconstruc-
tionist movements and thus to

Likud On Peace Process
A senior aide to Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir speaking just after
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres decided not
to ask the divided Inner Cabinet to support
his plan for an international conference
insisted that another path toward peace re-
mains open.
The adviser told U.S. government officials
and reporters: "There is no mandate for any
member of the Cabinet to continue to deal
with the matter of an international con-
ference. .. The government of national uni-
ty is still in existence. We will continue
the peace process without the idea of an in-
ternational conference."
The aide called the risk of reintroducing
the Soviet Union into Middle East peace-
making through a conference and of pro-
viding a potential opening for the PLO un-
justified. Instead, Shamir's Likud half of the
government advocates talks with Jordan
along the lines of the U.S.-brokered
Egyptian-Israeli Camp David Accords.
"We say this knowing King Hussein is not
in the same position as Egypt was. ... He
does need an international 'umbrella,' the
adviser said. Israel and the United States
should work hard to provide Jordan with
diplomatic cover, "because at every step
Hussein will expose himself to attack by
many of his brothers in the Arab countries
and the PLO."
But Shamir's aide was adamant that, in
terms of the peace process, "it has to be
either the PLO or King Hussein in the long
run.. .. There can be no mixing of the two '
because the organization's involvement in
peacemaking would be "a substantial
danger to us and to King Hussein."
Quiet, even secret diplomacy among
Jerusalem, Washington and Amman should
be pursued, he said. He noted that Israel
"waited 20 years for negotiations with
Egypt. ... If it takes time (for Jordan) so be
it." In any case, he insisted he was not ad-
vocating a freeze in the peace process.
The aide acknowledged differing Israeli
and U.S. views of likely Russian participa-
tion in a conference. The Prime Minister, he
said, does not believe the Soviets would con-
sent to a mostly ceremonial role. Asserting
that Israel has not seen any demonstration
by Moscow of a constructive attitude war-
ranting inclusion in a conference, he added
that, "after all, we are a sovereign state. We
have to have the right to decide on7 matters
vital to our very existence."
He suspected that Hussein might really
want a conference so that other participants
would help to roll Israel back to the pre-1967
lines. But Israel would like to discuss the
(West Bank and Gaza Strip) autonomy plan
mentioned in the Camp David Accords. "If
he (the King) does not like the words 'Camp
David,' it doesn't matter.... The substance
does. We submit there is no other, better
solution than autonomy."
Instead of Soviet and PLO "cover" for
Jordanian involvement in talks with Israel,
the adviser said "Palestinian support does
not have to mean PLO.. .. We have to work
on developing representative Palestinian
leadership in Judea and Samaria and Gaza."
He acknowledged that this would not be
easy but said there were local leaders who
might step forward eventually. "If we are
cowed by PLO threats, we will not make
any progress."
He said Israel "is willing to negotiate
peace with Syria," but if the price is relin-
quishing the Golan Heights, "the answer is
no." Later he added that, in general, it
would be better for Israel to proceed along
what he called the right path diplomatically
than take undue risks to improve its interna-
tional image.
Hussein, the adviser said, "wants a com-
prehensive insurance policy no company will
provide. ... And I hope that if he comes to
you and tells you he needs arms, that he's
the peacemaker, not Israel, I hope you tell
him no."
(Near East Report)
Sofaer Makes His Mark
Abraham Sofaer first gained national at-
tention in 1985 when, as Federal District
Court Judge in Manhattan, he presided over
Ariel Sharon's $50-million libel suit against
Time magazine. For the past two years,
Sofaer has served as State Department legal
adviser, a position which once again has
thrust him into the limelight as the author of
the Reagan Administration's narrow inter-
pretation of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Trea-
ty. He advised the State Department to
recommend approval of the Genocide Con-
vention, the UN treaty which makes
genocide a crime punishable by international
law. Sofaer also wrote the State Depart-
ment brief advocating the exclusion of
Austrian President Kurt Waldheim from the
United States. He is no stranger to
But in a recent speech to the Overseas
Writers club in Washington, Sofaer address-
ed some lesser-known activities of his office,
including its fight against terrorism by using
international law.
The legal adviser has taken issue with Pro-
tocol One of the Geneva Convention rules of
war which, he believes, "gives much more
recognition to terrorist groups than we wish
to give them." Sofaer explained that the
protocols treat as combatants various types
of terrorist groups such as the PLO by
defining those conflicts as international con-
frontations. "We don't stand for interna-
tional law that gives recognition to the PLO
as a combatant organization when it is blow-
ing up an airplane in international flight or
killing innocent people in an airport in
Sofaer believes that the use of force is
often necessary in the war on terrorism. He
feels that a nation which supports terrorism
is as culpable as terrorists themselves. Libya
is one such state.
Sofaer joined the State Department only
nine days after Mohammed Hamadi and
other members of the Abu Nidal terrorist
group hijacked TWA flight 847 and
murdered Navy diver Robert Stethem. His
office drafted the legal opinions which
helped bring the incident to a conclusion.
Sofaer expressed confidence that the West
German government "will comply with in-
ternational legal obligations" by extraditing
Hamadi to the United States or trying him
for crimes which carry "similar penalties."
A Sephardic Jew whose ancestors hailed
from Iraq and Egypt, Sofaer often vacations
in Israel. Since coming to the State Depart-
ment, Sofaer has often traveled to the Mid-
dle East on official business. He helped
resolve the dispute between Israel and
Egypt over the Taba territory, convincing
the two nations to submit to binding arbitra-
tion. Sofaer also led the State Department
team which visited Israel to gather evidence
against convicted spy Jonathan Jay Pollard.
Although he complained that Israel did not
provide "the full story," he was pleased with
Israeli cooperation: "We did wonderfully
well considering that (we were) trying to get
cooperation from a foreign sovereign on es-
pionage by members of its own government.
... We succeeded in getting a great deal of
cooperation enough to lead Mr. Pollard
and his wife to plead guilty and to cooperate
with the U.S."

Rabin Says He's
Livable for Security
In the Territories
This excerpt is from 'Yediot Ahronot' of April SO. Written by
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the article is based on remarks
he made recently at a Labor Party meeting in which he states suc-
cinctly the Defense Minister's viewpoint on the question of the ter-
ritories which Israel has held for the past 20 years.
I said that with respect to
policy in the territories, a
distinction exists between
security policy and settlement
policy. This is nothing new.
With the concurrence of every
government since 1967
Alignment and Likud govern-
ments alike the political fate
of the territories of Judea-
Samaria and Gaza has remain-
ed open.
Their political fate remains
open out of the clear intention
that no facts of partial or com-
plete annexation should be
created, with the exception of
Jerusalem. Why is this so? To
enable political negotiations
for peace with Jordan. Within
the framework of these
political negotiations, we shall
attain both peace and a solu-
tion to the Palestinian pro-
blem. Every government
and in this matter the Likud
has been no different than the
Alignment has left the issue
of the territories open, for 20
years, to give peace a chance.
In the absence of decisions on
the political and legal fate of
the territories, they are ruled
to this day by a military gover-
nor and the Civil
OUR POLICY toward the
Arab population in the ter-
ritories is built on two parallel
paths. One path: an all-out war
on terrorism under the law.
The second path: an improve-
ment in the quality of life of
the population, the decisive
majority of which does not
engage in terrorism, even if it
is not well-disposed toward
In the domain of improving
the quality of life, much has
been done since the establish-
ment of the national unity
government and during
Shimon Peres' term as Prime
Minister. We looked for, and
we are still seeking, every way
to transfer the administration
of ongoing daily life into the
hands of the residents of the
territories. During this period,
we replaced all the IDF of-
ficers who served as mayors of
Arab towns. Every mayor to-
day is an Arab who is a local
resident. During my term as
Defense Minister, we have also
replaced about 100 Jewish
workers in the Civil Ad-
ministration, and we hired
Arab residents in their stead.
As part of the effort to im-
prove the quality of life, we
also changed several economic
regulations which were in
practice for years until the
establishment of the national
unity government. For exam-
ple, we instituted absolute
liberalization in transferring
funds. Today, every resident
of Judea-Samaria and Gaza is
entitled to transfer $5,000 via
the Jordan River bridges,
without making a declaration.
THERE HAD been no such
thing since 1967. The Arab
residents have evinced great
trust in us; for instance, not
long ago an Arab resident ar-
rived at the bridges with a
nylon bag containing $950,000
(sic) in cash. No restrictions
whatsoever were placed on
As part of this same effort to
improve living conditions, we
have also appealed to every in-
ternational body European

At a Tipat Halav (mother

seven-month-old baby sits on
his mother's lap while a
woman across the table pulls
various objects out of a box.
The tiny tinkling bell, colorful
maracas, spoon and cup, and
crinkly tissue paper, however,
are not mere playthings but
part of a simple kit for testing
the hearing of infants.

cooperation of the Ministry of
Health, the kit has been placed

Weizmann Scientist Speaks ^|
At Morse Geriatric Center
A large audience filled the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center auditorium in West
Palm Beach May 13 to hear
Prof. David Samuel, Director
of the Weizmann Institute of
Science's Center for Neuros-
ciences and Behavioral
Research, speak on "Work at
the Institute on Aging of the
Brain and Related Problems."
The lecture forum, first in a
series to be sponsored here by
the Institute's Florida Region,
coincided with the opening of a
Weizmann branch office in
Palm Beach County this week.
The new office, directed by
Sylvia Lewis, is located at
2300 Palm Beach Lakes
Boulevard, West Palm Beach,
telephone 689-0726.
A Wine and Cheese recep-
tion preceding the forum was
hosted by Doris Zagayski of

Weizmann Florida Region Ex-
ecutive Committee and the In-
stitute's American Committee
Board of Governors.
I.C. Pollock, a member of the
Weizmann International
Board of Governors, introduc-
ed Prof. Samuel.
Prof. Samuel described the
Weizmann Institute's pioneer-
ing methods and studies of the
central nervous system, ex-
ploring such areas as learning
disabilities, medications,
stress and the immune system,
and brain tissue transplants.
Widely recognized for his
research on the aging process

It's Better Tftan Qoodi
A History of Kosher Quality
Of all the beautiful values that have passed
from generation to generation since Bibli-
cal times, none better reflects the wisdom
of Jewish heritage than the Jewish Dietary
Laws. Today, strict observers of the ko-
sher laws and non-observers of all religious
affiliations have come to equate the word
"Kosher" with "Superior Quality."
Empire Kosher Poultry takes great
pride in our reputation as "The Most
Trusted Name in Kosher Poultry" for al-
most 50 years. We have always been dedi-
cated to satisfying the toughest customers
in the world the or-
thodox Jewish con-
sumers who demand
both the highest stand-
ards of Kashruth and
the finest quality. Our
poultry is different. It
must be wholesome,
plump, juicy, and tender.
It must also be guaran-
teed strictly kosher, with-
out compromise, without excuses.
Because of the kosher laws, Empire
cannot take the same shortcuts that many
other poultry processors can. We produce
our own feed, and breed, hatch, and raise
our birds following the most rigid require-
ments. Our poultry is raised slowly and
humanely, with no artificial ingredients or
growth stimulants. Only completely
healthy birds can be processed. The ko-
sher laws also demand that much of our
processing be done by hand, supervised by
highly trained Rabbis as well as the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Empire Kosher poultry costs a little
more because of the extra care that is
taken with each bird. We are continually
improving and innovating our processing
equipment, however, to keep prices as low
as possible. It is our goal to use the most
modern techniques possible while main-
taining the ancient kosher laws. All Empire

the Jewish Dietary Laws.
With Empire Kosher
Poultry, You Don't
Have to Worry
To assure you, our valued, customer, that
our poultry is unquestionably kosher,
every bird bearing the EMPIRE label is
grown and processed under continuous
Rabbinical supervision.
All poultry is hand held at the
moment of slaughter to assure the
most perfect and humane cut that
qualifies a bird as ".kosher" accord-
ing to Jewish law.
No hot or heated water is used
at any stage of processing. Ever. Only
cold water is acceptable by the Rabbis
supervising our Kashruth.
Every bird is inspected for whole-
someness by U.S. Government inspec-
tors. However, where most companies
accept this inspection as good enough, we
at Empire do not Many of the birds that
pass government inspection do not pass
subsequent inspections by our own
Rabbinical supervisors. We guar-
antee that all poultry bearing
the Empire Kosher label
meets the highest standards
of the Jewish Dietary Laws,
nothing less!
Precisely located inci-
sions are made in each wing
and neck so that the blood
will be fully drained during
soaking and salting. Each bird
is submerged and soaked
completely in fresh, con-
stantly flowing, cold water
for at least one half hour to
loosen all blood parti-
cles. The bird is then
hung on a line to drip
free of all water and
hand-salted internally
and externally and stacked
correctly to drain for one
hour. During this time, the salt
loosens and absorbs all remain-
ing blood.
After salting, each bird is
rinsed in three separate vats of cold run-
ning water to remove all salt and thor-
oughly cleanse the bird.
All poultry is quickly chilled below
40F and packed to retain its freshness and
quality during the rapid shipment to the
market. Poultry destined to be dressed
and sold frozen or cooked for delicatessen
items is immediately taken to our further
processing rooms. Cutting, cooking, fur-
ther processing, and packaging are also
supervised by Rabbis to guarantee that
every Empire product adheres to the Jew-
ish laws.
You Can Taste the Difference
Because of our deep religious convictions,
we can enjoy only strictly kosher products.
So for ourselves, and for those individuals
who need kosher products because of reli-
gious convictions, we strive to produce
the best poultry on the market today.
Our chickens, turkeys, and duck-
lings bring compliments to dining
room and holiday tables when-
ever they are served.
The same care that ensures
the strictest kosher standards
also produces one of the most
succulent and delicious products
available. Consumers of all reli-
gions are discovering the differ-
ence between Empire Kosher
Poultry and products that are proc-
essed without the benefit of proper
Rabbinical supervision.
The Laws of Kashruth Consumer Protection for Over 5,000 Years
The Jewish I Mary Laws of humaneness and cleanliness have survived since ancient times. Now, over
5 000 years later, modem scientists are proving the validity of the Kashruth. Cold water has been found to
retard the growth of harmful bacteria (unidentified until the twentieth century). The ancient methods of
preparing meat have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of food poisoning and contamination. Lmpire
Kosher Poultry takes great pride in the reassurance that the same laws that protected consumers for
thousands of years continue to provide a superior product today.

could fall victim to a new

announced that it is postpon-
ing the sale of some 60 F-15
fighter planes to Saudi Arabia.
The notification of the sale
to Congress, which was ex-
pected late last month, will
probably not come until
sometime this summer. White
House spokesman Marlin Fitz-
water said the notification will
p-n to Congress at the "most
propitious time" to assure its
approval. The sale will go

Israeli nation thinks that a dif-

Maariv, commenting on the af-
fair, cautioned that "critics
must remember that when the
GSS is ordered to expose at all
costs, prevent at all costs, cap-

ministration did not consider
the time propitious now in the
wake of the refusal of two
Saudi F-15 pilots to force down
the Iraqi jet that attacked the
U.S. missile frigate Stark in
the Persian Gulf.
The Administration explain-
ed that the pilots did not have
time to get permission from
their ground control before the
Iraqi plane returned to its
State Department
spokesman Charles Redman
said that the Administration
plans to go through with the
sale, noting that there is no
"prearranged plan" for the
Saudis to aid American ships
in the Gulf.
Secretary of State George
Shultz, in response to a ques-
tion at the recent annual policy
conference of the American
Israel Public Affairs Commit-
tee (AIPAC), maintained the
sale is in the U.S. interest
because of the tension in the
Gulf and the "stability" pro-
vided there by the Saudis hav-
ing such advanced weapons.
The sale will not enlarge the
number of F-15s held by the
Saudis, but will replace, as
needed, the 62 F-15s sold to
the Saudis in 1978.

come and invest in the ter-
ritories. Until now they have
been paying lip service and ac-
ting hypocritically with regard
to the Palestinians' fate. The
world hasn't lifted a finger for
them, and we a country with
hardships are asking for
help, in order to help them.
One of the only countries to
respond to our appeal was ac-
tually Saudi Arabia, which
raised a contribution totalling
$1 million for the construction
of a new sewerage system in
the Jabaliya refugee camp in
Gaza. We also made an effort
in the realm of economic
BUT THERE is no reason
and no need to blur the facts.
Even after a long series of
such improvements, the Arab
population is not a lover of
Zion. There are two alter-
natives (among the popula-
tion): PLO supporters, who
want a separate Palestinian
state and prefer attaining it
through terrorism; and the
more moderate Arabs, who are
generally identified with Jor-
dan and view the solution to
the Palestinian problem in con-
nection with Jordan. These lat-
ter prefer political
This is the place to state that
we have recently acted to the
best of our ability for what
some Likud ministers call the
"Jordanization" of the ad-
ministered territories. I do not
deny it. Until December, 1986,
I indeed had the feeling that
the pro-Jordan moderates had
the upper hand in the ter-
ritories. Unfortunately, this
was not the case. The Jorda-

this was not reflected on with George Habash and Nayif

Jordanians' standing in the
territories has declined, even
more so following the outcome
of the PNC session.
However, I do not recom-
mend that any of us toy with il-
lusions that the PLO will be a
partner to talks in the near
future, if at all. My opinion on
this matter is unequivocal. The

Regular sessions with an in-
dividual teacher open up the
world of language for the

Their presence is an important
part of the MICHA system
which encourages parents to
integrate the methods of
teaching at the center with
their approach to the problem
at home.
At four years old, the
children attend one of the
special integrated
kindergartens where hearing-
impaired children learn and
play alongside hearing
children. MICHA teachers
continue their individual
auditory training and speech
and language development,
with continued back-up from

who work with them to help

that deafness is not a medical
but an educational problem.
"Children learn language from

a period of emotional distress

It is just a frustrating for the
child who is unable to say Ima

This often leads to behavioral
problems. "Deafness is less

adds Froehlich.

Over a month ago, instruc-
tions were issued to the field
from Yasir Arafat and his
subordinates to make an effort
to kill as many Jews as possi-
ble in the administered ter-
ritories and in Lebanon, and to
foment disturbances on a wide
Indeed, recently katyushas
have been fired into the Galilee
panhandle, and there has been
an infiltration attempt to carry
out a bargaining for hostages
operation. If no indiscriminate
acts of murder were
perpetrated in the territories
recently, this is not because
the appropriate orders were
not given for them, but
because we made an effort to
strike at the terrorists.
MANY ASK: why do you
employ expulsion orders? Why
is administrative detention us-
ed? I have no choice. Whoever
is interested, as I am, in strik-
ing at the precise points of ter-
rorism without imposing col-
lective punishment must take
these measures. We shall con-
tinue to do so. We will arrest
whoever heads a terrorism
system, even if Israeli and
Jewish haverim meet with him
for talks of any kind. We will
fight instigators of terrorism.
We will fight the organizers of
terrorism. We will fight the
"handlers" of terrorism. We
will fight them to the last.
Not long ago, the murderous
hand of terrorism struck at the
Moses family from Alfei
Menashe. This was a
murderous, despicable attack
against a family which neither
sinned nor committed a crime,
a family which made its home
at Alfei Menashe. In the wake
of this saddening incident,
questions have been raised
regarding settlement policy,
and I want to address this as
I have always supported,
and I still support settlement
in the territories, in accor-
dance with the Allon Plan,
which accords clear preference
to security settlement. I have
said and I do not retract this
- that with all due respect to
Alfei Menashe and Ariel, they
make no security contribution
like the one made by confron-
tation line settlements.
SECURITY IS maintained
by confrontation line set-
tlements along the border with
Lebanon, on the Golan
Heights, in the Jordan Valley,
in the Beit She'an valley, in
the Jordan Rift Valley, and in
the Arava. These are Israel's
confrontation lines. We will
not defend Tel Aviv from the
Kfar Saba region, and woe to
us if we are forced to do so.
We shall defend Tel Aviv
and Jerusalem from within the
security border along the Jor-
dan River, dozens of
kilometers from our homes,
and not five minutes from Kfar
' This does not mean that I do
not consider settlement impor-
tant. On the contrary; I con-
sider settlement an important
value in and of itself.
However, as Defense
Minister, I must provide
security in every place to
every Israeli resident, both
Jews and Arabs, without dif-
ferentiating between religion
and nationality. You can come
to me from Ariel and from
Ofra and from Karnei
Shomron and say: "You must
provide us with security. In
fact, it is my duty to provide
everyone with maximum
security, everywhere. The
responsibility is mine.

Barbie Trial Can't Solve Mystery
0 Izieu Jewish Children's Home
Continued from Page 4
Forty-five children one of
them a non-Jew, was released
shortly afterwards were put
aboard the truck along with
the six adults who staffed the
shelter. They were taken to
prison in Lyon where, after a
brief stay, they were sent to
Auschwitz. Two of the children
were shot there, and 42 died in
the gas chambers.
ONE OF the witnesses,
Leon Reifmann, is the sole sur-
vivor of Izieu. He was 17 in
1944. He alone saw the
truckload of soldiers drive up
to the shelter and managed to
climb from a window and hide
in underbrush until the convoy
drove away. The person or
persons who tipped off the
Gestapo remain unknown.
France Culture, a state-owned
radio station, reported last
week that it was the Mayor of
Izieu who wrote to Gestapo
headquarters denouncing "the
Jewish character" of the

Hospital in Jerusalem, the
naming of the Raoul
Wallenberg Children's Day
Hospital was announced.
Among the 900 who attended
the $1,000 a plate kosher af-
fair, hosted by Barbara
Walters, were Wallenberg's
sister, his niece and four
cousins. Nina Lagergren,
Wallenberg's sister, told Meir
Rosenne and Benyamin
Netanyahu that there were
new bits of evidence that her
brother remained alive as a
prisoner in the Soviet Union as
late as last spring. If he is
alive, Wallenberg would be 75
years old and a prisoner in the
S.U. for 45 years.
While filming in Israel, ac-
tress Amy Irving, wife of film-
maker Steven Spielberg, was
very impressed with her first
Israeli experience. Said she: "I
found Israel extremely
beautiful. The best part of it
was the people." She was elec-
trified by the spirit of the peo-
ple, and admired their unified
purpose and achievements in
the arts, sciences, agriculture
and education.
Jewish women are famous
for the warmth of their hearts.
The "Yiddishe Mama" has
become a creature of folklore,
esteemed by Jews and non-
Jews alike. However, it seems
that the hearts of Jewish
women in Israel leave a lot to
be desired. WHO statistics
reveal that Israeli women are
in eighth place in the world
among those likely to die of
heart attacks. Research in
Israel shows that 40 percent of
women examined were found
to be overweight and more
than a quarter of them had
high cholesterol with
dangerous low-density pro-
teins. Israeli women engage in
15 percent less physical activi-
ty than Germans and Scan-
dinavians, and practice far less
sports than men.
The father of the non-Jewish
boy released after the raid is
also suspected. He was ex-
ecuted by the French
underground immediately
after the war for collaboration
with the Nazis.
Another possible suspect is
Lucien Bourdon, a farm
worker at the time, who disap-
peared from Izieu several days
after the arrests. He served
during the final months of the
war as a guard in the Saar-
bruck concentration camp in
Germany, where he was ar-
rested by American forces.
Bourdon, still alive, has been
summoned to take the stand at
the Barbie trial. In the search
for the real culprit, some
observers may recall Pierre
Laval, the Prime Minister in
the Vichy government, who
was executed for treason after
the war. Laval is known to
have complained that the
Vichy police were lax in sear-
ching French orphanages for
children of "Jewish blood."

According to Mr. Messing, the Vice Chairmen will
play an important role in soliciting the support of
their peers in reaching out to the entire community.
"Many of the Vice Chairmen have agreed to hold
Parlor Meetings in their homes or at the Jewish Com-
munity Center in order to educate our community
about the needs for a JCCampus." Those Parlor
Meetings will be scheduled to include all geographical
areas of the Palm Beaches.
