Special Gifts Dinner Raises 2 Million Dollars
Israel Special Fund Tops $300,000
h *? ^
i> and Sidney Kohl with General Alexander Haig.
The Special Gifts Dinner hosted by
Dorothy and Sidney Kohl on behalf of the
1983 Campaign of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, was held on Dec. 9.
Two million dollars was pledged by the
participants for the 1983 campaign. "This
figure alone is more than half of what we
raised last year," commented Myron Nick-
man, 1983 General Campaign Chairman.
"This is symbolic of the understanding that
has taken root in our community an
understanding thai the demands of our
growing population must be met with an
array of well-funded local services at home,
and an increased allocation of funds to the
United Jewish Appeal for Israel."
Funds were also raised for the "1983
Special Fund for Israel." This Special Fund
is denoted by a "2nd line" on the 1983 pledge
card. The monies contributed to the Special
Fund will be allocated exclusively to Israel
for the support of social welfare programs
and will replace funds which the Israeli
government has had to redirect because of
the expenses of the "Peace in Galilee" effort.
"For one year only we are being asked to give
an extra gift" said Nickman. "Social welfare
programs that the United Jewish Appeal is
not usually responsible for have come under
our community fund raising umbrella in 1983
and everyone in Palm Beach County must
understand that doors will close on needy
men, women and children unless the Special
Fund is supported. When we give to the
Special Fund, we are true to the finest im-
pulses of Jewish philanthropy." Nickman
stressed that every donor should consider a
one time gift to the Special Fund as an
obligation "like the demands of any

Lebanon Seeks Security
Arrangement With Israel
Israel's Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon said here that Israel is
"close to" a security arrange-
ment with Lebanon and seeks
a normalization of relations
with that country as the first
step toward a full-fledged
peace treaty.
He warned that Israel was
unalterably opposed to any
linkage between progress
toward a peace treaty with
Lebanon and concessions by
Israel on the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. He contended that

for the West Bank would

persons. The meeting was
chaired by Yehuda Hellman,
executive vice chairman of the
Conference, in the absence of
its chairman, Julius Berman,
who is in Israel.
The contents of Sharon's
speech and his replies to ques-
tions were reported to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency by

the meeting. According to the

the negotiations for security

Staci Lesser, Vice Chairman
for Registration for Super
Sunday '83, is well known to
the Jewish Floridian reader-
ship. Her column, "Around
the Town," has been a staple
of the paper for the past three
years and, in addition, she is
the Floridian's advertising
supervisor. Not only is Staci
familiar as' a columnist, but
also as an active participant in
this area's Jewish community
for many years.
Born in Miami, Staci has
been a resident of the Palm
Beaches for 18 years. She was
the founding President of Bat
Gurion Chapter of Hadassah
and continues to be a life

of Secretary and Treasurer.
Staci was the first Co-Chair-

A Test of Morality
Once again, Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum
has hit it in the head. The Rabbi noted the
other day that the full-scale inquiry of the
Palestinian massacre going on in Israel
"proves the opposite of what anti-Israel
propagandists and anti-Semites have been
blathering for months."
Even though, says Tanenbaum, the
Christian Phalangists pulled the triggers
and killed several hundred Palestinians,
"that did not stop the vicious condemna-
tion of Israel as being allegedly Nazi-like,
immoral, and what not."
The central question, of course, is to
note exactly how that "immoral" Israeli
government is behaving.
A panel of two Supreme Court justices
and a former general have summoned the
highest officials of the government and
army to give an account of what they knew
and did to stop the massacre. No one in Is-
rael who was in a decision-making position
is exempt from public scrutiny.
Argues Tanenbaum: "Even the United
.states, one of the greatest democracies in
human history, took years to overcome the
obstacle to a Watergate inquiry. It took Is-
rael but one week. During the inquiry on
the My Lai massacre, not a single general
was held accountable, although it was done
by an American battalion."
It is a fantasy to insist that Israel
must be perfect, must never do wrong. No
other state in the world is asked never to do
wrong; no other state is asked to justify its
existence by being morally superior.

He stressed, however, that
security arrangements can
come about only through
direct negotiations so that the
signatories can be held ac-
countable for carrying out the
source, Sharon said the
security arrangements "we are
close to" would contain the
following terms:
No Arab army will again
be allowed into Lebanese
Any other foreign forces
such as peace-keeping troops
must be countries which
recognize Israel.
Lebanon will not permit
the military or political
presence of any terrorist group
on its soil.
No artillery, rocket-
launchers or surface-to-air
missiles will be permitted in
the 45-50 kilometer zone bor-
dering on Israel.
Israeli warning stations
will be operated in that zone
until a formal peace treaty is
Sharon warned that unless
President Amin Gemayel of
Lebanon signs a peace treaty
with Israel he will be the
"President of the Presidentia
Palace but not of the coun-
try." He meant, apparently,
that Lebanon would degener-
ate into warring factions as
was the situation before the
Israeli campaign.
BUT SHARON insisted that
Israel was not putting pressure
on Lebanon. "Nothing in our
demands go beyond the
normal security needs of both
countries, he said. "There is
nothing to be ashamed of that
we want to have a peace treaty
with our neighbors, nothing to
be ashamed of that we want to
negotiate directly in our
capital and in their capital."
Sharon disclosed, according
to the source, that as of Nov.
15 Israel formally opened its
border with Lebanon with
normal customs and passport
controls and that thousands of
Lebanese have crossed into
Israel for business or as
tourists. He did not say where
the border post is located.
He claimed that commercial
normalization has already
begun. He said $20 million
worth of goods has already
entered Lebanon from Israel,
half of it being Israeli exports
and the rest Lebanese imports
from other countries tran-
shipped via Israeli ports.
Sharon said Lebanese im-
porters prefer to use Haifa to
their own ports.
Reagan's plan, which called
for Palestinian control of the
West Bank in association with
Jordan, Sharon's view, as
conveyed to the JTA, was that
it would invite the same chaos
that prevailed in Lebanon
before June, 1982. According
to Sharon, without Israeli
forces in control of internal
and external security in the
territory, any demilitarized
zone associated with Jordan
would be open to infiltration
by Arab armies and terrorists.
Sharon said that between
January 1, 1965 and June 5,
terrorists operating from
Lebanon caused over 7,000
casualties: 1,392 dead and
6,239 wounded. He said Israel
had good relations with the
Lebanese in south Leh

ointed him as his senior military advisor. During his four
js in the White House with the Nixon Administration, and
Er on as Secretary of State to the Reagan Administration, he
[been at the forefront of American foreign policy. I had the
Lilege of meeting with General Haig at The Breakers for an
llusive interview. For a man of such stature, he made me feel
jte comfortable by opening the interview with a humorous
bark about himself. He stated that on his trip down to Palm
ich he heard about the takeover of the Washington
pnorial. "I had a crisis on the airplane," Haig stated, "trying
turn it around and go back to take charge."

gain. On the other hand, of
course, we have to make
assessments of the general
thrust of a nation's policy and
our dealings with them. But to
answer your question speci-
fically, 1 don't think that you
can deal honorably with a
friendly nation by putting
price tags of one kind or
another on a proposed policy.
As a matter of principle, I
would say our friends in Israel
cannot insist that we are not
permitted to provide arma-
ments to Arab States where
the consequences of such a
policy would bring a high level
of Soviet arms into those
countries. It is in Israel's
interests for the United States
to maintain influential policies
and relationships with the so-
called moderate Arab world
. and that is not collective.
There are a whole series of
individual Arab leaderships.
So, 1 have said in the past that
Israel cannot maintain that
position. On the other hand,
we cannot expect Israel to
stand by complacently when
we arm neighbors that are
dedicated to the destruction of
the State of Israel. These are
all interrelated problems .
very sensitive and very deli-
cate. And they involve also
our level of military assistance
to Israel itself.
Epstein: Do you think there
is any hope of us getting Jor-
dan into the Camp David
peace process, and if so, how
can we do that?
Haig: I think we have
always, and Israel has always
wanted to broaden the Camp
David consensus. As you
know, only Egypt accepted
Camp David. The reasons for
that probably go back to the
procedures followed at the
time of the Camp David
meetings, when certain of the
so-called moderate Arab
States were not consulted
properly, and they had a
vested interest in opposing
Camp David in principle. Now
whether better coordination at
that time might have garnered
their support is a very difficult
question, but the President's
speech of course has raised the
issue once again the so-
called Jordanian option. It has
also raised the issue of the so-
called Alon plan, put forth by
General Alon in 1976 in For-
eign Affairs magazine. I had
raised the issue that Camp
David visualized an evolu-
tionary effort to establish
autonomy on the west bank in
Gaza. At that time I think all
of the participants in Camp
David, Sadat, Mr. Begin and
President Carter, hoped that
once that was established
other Arab states would
ultimately recognize or join
the outcome. But the Presi-
dent's speech has raised this
issue again, and it is important
to remember that it is a very
important internal political
question with Israel. I have
always felt that the U.S. in
dealing with its allies, especial-
ly its democratic allies, should
avoid getting itself heavily en-
meshed with internal political
issues, and leave the choice to
the people of Israel, who do
follow a democratic process.
And whether the outcome is in
the direction of an Alon solu-
tion with a relationship with
Jordan, or something that is
more vague in the context of
the Camp David Accords in
the approach to autonomy, is
a question for Israel to decide.
1 do believe that the situation
today offers unusual opportu-
nities for progress in the peace
process. Hopefully, the threat
from Lebanon will be elimi-
nated. There is a stalemate in
the fundamentalist movement
emerging from Iran. How long
that will last, one cannot say.
One would hope that it would
be forever behind us, but I
doubt that, and it is the great-
est danger for peace in the
Middle East, not the Arab-
Israeli tensions, but the funda-
mentalist threat. All of these
things today offer unusual
opportunities, unique oppor-
tunities, and 1 hope the leader-
ship from my own country and
Israel and in those Arab States
that are involved, see it.
Epstein: Do you see the
West Bank settlements as an
obstacle to peace?
Haig: Well, I see this as a
question that should be
handled quietly and confiden-
tially between the United
States and the Begin govern-
ment. It too is uniquely related
to the question of autonomy
versus the Alon plan. There-
fore, it is best solved by a quiet
dialogue. I have always felt
that the atmosphere in
progress and peace would be
best served by some cessation
of settlement activity. But this
has got to be the product of an
initiative taken by Israel and
not external pressure or public
pressure because it makes it all
the more attractive in political

image right now?
Haig: Well, we all know
that Mr. Begin has suffered
some image problems in this
country not only among the
non-Jewish element, but
among the Jewish community
in America, and it is also true
in the diaspora at large. On the
other hand, 1 worked with Mr.
Begin and 1 found him to be
totally reliable and essentially
concerned about the welfare
of his people and his obliga-
tion to his people. 1 have
found him in the case of
returning the Sinai, true to his
word and willing to accept
unusual risk in order to deliver
on his commitment which
he did, and I only regret that
too few of us recognize the
great sacrifice in the interest of
peace that Israel made in
returning the Sinai. It was
merely pocketed by most
people and overlooked. I
don't feel any of us are en-
titled, but we may have our
opinions of Mr. Begin and I
have given mine. The im-
portant thing to remember is
that we don't have the luxury
of being entitled to a vigorous
opinion on that question. That
is a decision Of the people of
Israel to make. What we
frequently forget today is that
Israel is a democracy in every
sense of the word. And when
we from abroad deprive the
opposition in Israel of its plat-
form, we skew the democratic
process in Israel itself. We
make the opposition less
effective, not more effective.
We give them a vested interest
in rallying behind whoever is
the incumbent leader as a
matter of loyalty. 1 think we
are all better served by quiet-
ing the voices of public criti-
cism in dealing with an ally, as
an ally in quiet diplomacy.
Epstein: Could you discuss
the recent situation in Leb-
Haig: The situation in Leb-
anon is a very unfortunate
aspect and there are many.
The fact that force had to be
used is a manifestation of the
failure of diplomacy. That
failure does not belong ex-
clusively on the shoulders of
Israel. It involved the modera-
te Arab world, it involves the
western European powers, and
it involves the United States,
to accept for a host of under-
standable reasons for an
unacceptable situation for a
number of years in Lebanon.
The situation in which the
Lebanese people were
deprived of their sovereignty,
and brutalized alternately by
the PLO on one hand and
Syria on the other hand. We
should not be surprised that a
violent outcome occurred. But
now that it did occur I think
we can take some sense of (I

Steering Committee of the JCCAS
Reviews Reports of Sub-Committees
At a recent meeting of the
steering committee of the Jew-
ish Community Center Activi-
ties Study, reports and recom-
mendations were submitted by
the administrative sub-com-
mittees the Facilities Sub-
Committee chaired by Steve
Abramson and the Operating
Budget Sub-Committee,
headed by Dr. Peter Wunsh.
Abramson, Florida Home
Building of the year for 1980,
has resided in and carried out
his business interests in the
Palm Beaches for 24 years.
Utilizing the political process
in the best of our democratic
tradition, he has demonstrated
far reaching and effective
leadership capability.
Dr. Wunsh, an eminent
rheumatologist, has partici-
pated in many important
leadership activities in the
Jewish community. Among
his list of accomplishments
during his seven years in Jew-
ish Federation leadership, he
has been recognized for his
contribution as a member of
the pivotal Budget and Alloca-
tions Committee. In addition.
Dr. Wunsh currently serves as
a member of the Board of
Directors of the Jewish Com-
munity Center of the Palm
Beaches and the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
The appointment of the
Administrative Committees
followed the earlier in depth
analysis of extensive data
gathered in the study process
and the prior decision of the
steering committee, headed by
Buddie Brenner that the need
for a primary, central Jewish
Community Center building
had been overwhelmingly sub-
Steve Abramson reported
that the Facilities Sub-Com-
mittee, based on data in-
formation supplied by the
community, recommended
that the proposed Jewish
Community Center building
should include physical facili-
ties to provide social, physical
education, Jewish culture and
informal educational pro-
grams and activities for all age
groups quality facilities,
quality staff, quality programs

and activities. It was further
recommended that the build-
ing should be adequate in size
and facilities to serve a Jewish
community that is expected to
continue growing in size be-
yond its current population
and that it should be centrally
located accessible to an identi-
fied broad-based population.
Dr. Peter Wunsh, chair-
man, then presented the report
and recommendations of the
Operating Budget Sub-Com-
mittee relative to the finances
necessary to operate and
maintain such a quality build-
ing facility and its broad scope
of Jewish Community Center
programs and activities for all
age groups.
Following full discussion
and review of the reports, the
steering committee approved
both sub-committee reports
and recommendations for
submission and recommenda-
tion to the respective Boards
of Directors of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County and the Jewish Com-
munity Center of the Palm
Beaches. The steering commit-
tee made its recommendations
subject to a feasibility study by
a qualified professional fund
raiser to determine the finan-
cial ability and readiness of the
community to raise the re-
quired amount of funds from
such a projected Capital Fund
Campaign for such a Jewish
Community Center building.

IRA has been established for
at least five years prior to the
marital division and to which
the ex-spouse has contributed
for at least three of the five
years, the divorcee or
separated spouse may now
make deductible contributions
to an IRA. In such case, the
annual deduction is limited to
the lesser of $ 1,125 or the sum
of her compensation and taxa-
ble alimony.
If an IRA is transferred
from one spouse to the other
by a divorce decree, or a writ-
ten document related to
divorce, the transfer is not a
distribution and is tax-free.
Starting from the date of the
transfer, the account is treated
as the IRA of the spouse who
receives it.
Amounts received by an in-
dividual from his IRA account
are includible in his taxable in-
come in the year received and
are taxable as ordinary in-

taxed in the same manner.
Estate taxes are not an im-
portant consideration any
longer. If the payments are
taken over at least a 36 month
period, the amount is not in-
cludible in the taxable estate.
If a lump sum is taken by the

and also includible for estate
tax. However, since there is an

THERE SEEMS to be no
doubt that the massacre was
conducted by Lebanese Chris-
tians, who were let into the
camps to look for Palestine
Liberation Organization ter-
rorists who had not left Beirut
with the large exodus of ter-
rorists. The massacre occurred
after Gemayel's brother,

Saqa, head of the Phalangist
faction called Guardians of
the Cedar, said in Jerusalem
recently, it came after eight
years of Christians being killed
by Palestinians. Saqa, while
refusing to say whether his
group had any responsibility
for the massacre, said it was
"a Lebanese reaction from the
relatives and parents of our
He noted while Christians
were killed the world "was
asleep." About a year ago
Lebanese Americans spon-
sored a photo exhibit in a
Senate Office Building show-
ing the atrocities committed
against Lebanese Christians in
the town of Damour. The pic-
tures were horrible and tragic
but there was no mention of it
in the press. The assault in
Damour itself received little
spotlight focussed on the mas-
sacre at Shatila and Sabra.
One does not justify the other.
But the atrocities by Pales-
tinians and their allies have
been largely ignored while the
massacre at the two refugee
camps received world atten-
tion with much of the blame
being put on Israel.
It is understandable that the
Lebanese government and the
Reagan Administration want
to keep attention away from
the actual killers at the two
camps. To stress that they
were Christians might destroy
the efforts of Gemayel to
reconcile Lebanese Moslems
to his government. Even
Druze leader Walid Jumblat,
one of the pro-Palestinian
leaders in Lebanon, said this
was not the time to assess
blame, after he was injured by
a car bomb on Dec. I.
.All this may be in every-
one's interest Lebanon, the
U.S., and even Israel. But
what cannot be tolerated is the
effort that is going on in the
Arab world, including oc-
casionally by Gemayel him-
self, and picked up by some in
the West, especially the media,
to charge Israel with the crime.
PREMIER Menachem
Begin was correct when he said
in his letter to Sen. Alan
Cranston (D. Calif.) that there
has been a "campaign" to
blame Israel for the massacre,
a campaign which he called
"unbelievable, fantastic and
totally despicable."
The Israeli government, by
establishing the commission of
inquiry, has agreed to accept
the consequences for any er-
rors of commission or ommis-
sion it may be guilty of in the
massacre. The new Lebanese
government, however, cannot
be safeguarded by refusing to
deal with the much greater
crime of its own citizens, and
by allowing Israel to be the
scapegoat. To do so will not
ensure the stability of the
Gemayel government but lay
the foundation for its collapse.
Like Israel, it too must
nonostly remove the sore in its
body politic or remain un-
healed and never whole.

General Alexander Haig spoke movingly
of Israel's isolation in the world com munirv".
He noted that the PLO has retained its ability
to blackmail Arab governments but that the
war in Lebanon has freed Israel and America
and the western world from terrorists who.
though based in Lebanon, were reaching out
around the globe.
General Haig, who recently received an
Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from Ben
Gurion University in the Negev, spoke
emotionally about the people of Israel.
"Israel is the finest friend Americans have in
the Middle East," he said. "Israel's values
are our values, and when we are true to
Israel, we are true to ourselves.
Taking questions after the fundraising
portion of the evening, Haig lauded the
efforts of the local Jewish community and
the L'JA. "Your commitment to Israel is a
source of pride for all those who value
democracy and freedom," he said.

An Interview With General Alexander Haig, Jrj
don't like to say gratification)
but the Soviet Union has been
discredited again, the PLO has
been discredited, and hope-
fully it will shift its activity
from terrorism to political
dialogue, and the prospects
and opportunities for the
return of Lebanon to the
sovereign control of the people
of Lebanon are very good if
we have the wisdom and the
determination to insist that all
foreign forces be withdrawn
and that Israel be the bene-
ficiary of some kinds of assur-
rances from the Lebanese
government that the repetition
of terrorism and the violation
ol Galilee security will not
occur. 1 think that this is the
task for Phil Habib in his mis-
sion over there. He seems
optimistic I talked with him
in Israel two weeks ago and I
would hope that we will insist
on simultaneous withdrawal
of all foreign forces that is
Syria, the 7,000 hard core
PLO that remain, and which
is growing daily, as well as
Epstein: 1 was over in Leb-
anon this summer and also in
Israel, and I saw the thousands
upon thousands of armaments
that were captured by the
Israeli army do you have
any speculations what the
PLO intended to do with that
Haig: Well, I am one that
has always been less suspicious
of what the PLO intended to
do with the armament, and
more suspicious of what the
Soviet Union intended to do.
Clearly the PLO aspirations
for major conventional mili-
tary operations had to be
limited. On the other hand,
the strategic stockpiling by the
Soviet Union in a critical area
of the world is not a new
Epstein: The administration
and Congress are now
debating on the amount and
arrangement of foreign aid to
Israel. Do you endorse in-
creased aid to Israel?
Haig: I think I would not
like to see the United States
too wrenched bv this question.
Clearly we have an obligation
and we have met that obliga-
tion over the years and have
maintained a high level of
support to be sure that Israel is
quantitatively superior in the
region, and that obviously has
some quantitative obligations
as well, and we have to recog-
nize that experiences in Leb-
anon have not been cost free
for Israel. It is our system that
the President proposes and the
Congress disposes on matters
of funding, and I am opti-
mistic that we are going to
maintain a high level of sup-
port for Israel as we should.
Epstein: Can 1 have your
opinions on the MX missile?
Haig: I have been a very
strong, and remain a very
strong advocate for the MX
and the system. The current
controversy doesn't involve so
much the system as it does the
deployment, the so-called
dense pack. It is clear that the
President and the Executive
branch and the defense
department experienced a psy-

chological if not a real set back

means they have a lot of work
to do to convince the Congress
and the American people that
dense pack is the right deploy-
ment mode. It means that per-
haps they did not do that work
before they made the proposal
to the lame-duck Congress,
who have a very tight dead-
line. I would hope that in the
weeks ahead, and the hours
ahead, that these kinds of
explanations would be of
value to dense pack. I myself
have not been exposed I
was not Secretary of State
because the proposal came up
after mv departure. Therefore,
I cannot make a value
judgment about dense pack. I
will categorically state that it is
essential, first and foremost to
maintain a deterrent the
objective of which is to
prevent any use whatsoever ol
nuclear weapons and indeed
any resort to violence between
ourselves and the Soviet
Union. Secondly, it is an
essential aspect of our nego-
tiations with the Soviet Union
to seek substantial reductions
of all nuclear weapons.
Epstein: What are your fu-
ture plans?
Haig: I am very productive-
ly engaged at the moment, and
very optimistic about that
engagement I am writing a
book. 1 am a fellow with the
Hudson Institute. We are
doing a number of studies
focusing on the future and
these studies 1 may add are
optimistic. 1 think our young
people in America have been
inundated with pessimistic
prognostications from the
Club of Rome and some of the
studies done during the Carter
years, which suggest that they
are facing a world, that will
run out of food, energy, and

All went well on the ap-
pointed day. The young schol-
ar met Singer at the writer's
apartment and they walked to
one of Singer's favorite dairy
restaurants. Pinsker described
how he told Singer about his
project, a book with the un-
likely title, "The Schlemiel as
Metaphor." Singer did not
seem particularly impressed.
AFTER A pleasant but un-
eventful hour, Pinsker decided
the time had come to say
goodbye. Singer broke in to
say: "Tell me, what is your
name again?" The Scholar de-
scribed his disappointment:
"evidently, the meeting was
more uneventful" for Singer
"than 1 had imagined." He
replied: "Sanford Pinsker, but
everybody calls me Sandy."
Excitedly, much to the schol-
ar's surprise, Singer said
"Yes, that's it, Pinsker. When
1 saw you, 1 wondered if you
might not be perhaps the son
of Pinsker the poet. A couple
of months ago, 1 saw a won-
derful poem written about me
by Pinsker. the poet. And I
said to my wife, 'See, poems
they write about me now*."
The scholar asked: "Was it

Singer replied he thought it
was. "That's my poem," Pin-
sker shouted. "That's your

amazement. "You are Pinsker

It was immediately clear to
Pinsker that, for Singer, poets
came in only one condition
old. "And the Yiddishist in
him treated 'poets" with ut-
most respect."
"To think," Singer added,
"that Pinsker the Poet should
be in New York City and 1
should miss the chance to
thank him for a lovely poem. 1
tell you, it would have been
terrible, a shanda (shame)."

Begin In Letter to Inquiry Panel, Affirms His
Gov't. Had No Reason To Anticipate a Massacre
Premier Menachem Begin
continues to maintain that
neither he nor his government
had any reason to suspect that
the Christian Phalangists
would commit atrocities
against civilians when Israel
permitted them to enter the
Sabra and Shatila refugee
camps in west Beirut last Sept.
16 to root out terrorists claim-
ed to be hiding there.
That was the key point
made by Begin in a letter to the
commission of inquiry into the
refugee camps massacre which
the commission has made
public. The Prime Minister
was one of nine senior govern-
ment and military officials
who received formal notifi-
cation from the panel two
weeks ago that they "may be
harmed" by its eventual con-
clusions. All were given 15
days to re-appear before the
commission to clarify their
earlier testimony and examine
witnesses and evidence. Five
agreed but requested a one-
week extension to prepare
their material.
BEGIN CHOSE to respond
by letter to the commission's
warning that it might find him
lax in the performance of his
duties should it conclude that
he did not give careful consi-
deration to the possible ac-
tions by the Phalangists "and
ignored the danger of acts of
revenge and bloodshed by
these forces against the popu-
lation in the refugee camps."
Begin stressed in his letter,
sent to the commission, that
the Phalangists had refrained
from acts of vengeance "or
other irregular action,"
against Palestinians in the two
days immediately after the
assassination of Lebanon's
President-elect Bashir Gema-
yel, the Phalangist leader.
According to Begin, their res-
traint "eased fears" and
"confirmed our knowledge"
that the Phalangists were
"organized, disciplined and
centrally controlled military
Begin, who testified in per-
son before the three-man
panel on Nov. 8, added
nothing to his original brief.
His letter stressed that he had
no cause for concern over the
Phalangists' conduct when he
and his fellow ministers
learned on the evening of
Thusday, Sept. 16 that Defen-
se Minister Ariel Sharon had
given them permission to enter
the camps.
BEGIN SAID his own
consultations with Sharon and
Chief of Staff Gen. Rafael
Eitan earlier that day con-
cerned the Israel Defense
Force's entry into west Beirut
and no mention was made of
any role for the Phalangists.
He defended the Cabinet deci-
sion, made retroactivelv. to
allow the Phalangists into the
refugee camps because
"according to authoritative
information in our posse-
ssion" about 2,000 armed
terrorists were hiding in the
Begin's letter stated further
that the Phalangists had
conducted military operations
in the course of Israel's
"Peace for Galilee" campaign
in Lebanon without perpe-
trating "horrors or slaugh-
ter." Therefore, he said, he
"did not at all imagine that the
Phalangists, a trained and
organized military force,
facing the task of hard fight-
ing in difficult conditions,
would want or would be able
to perpetrate massacre."
Begin acknowledged that at
the crucial Cabinet meeting in
the evening of Sept. 16, Depu-
ty Premier David Levy had
indeed warned of the possibi-
lity of a massacre. But Levy
did not propose that the Pha-
langists be withdrawn from
the camps or that the Cabinet
even address itself to the issue.
"His words aroused no res-
ponse on the part of any of the
participants at the meetings
and this in itself shows that
this possibility (a massacre)
was not considered likely in
the circumstances by anyone
Begin also stated that
Eitan's warning to the Cabinet
that the Phalangists were
"sharpening their
knives there is revenge in
their eyes" was made in refe-
rence to the overall situation in
Lebanon following Gemayel's
assassination, not specifically
to the refugee camps. Accord-
ing to Begin, Eitan's "words
were intended to explain the
urgent need for the IDF to
take the actions that it took
immediately in the wake of
Gemayel's assassination,"
meaning its occupation of west
Begin's letter concluded:
"In light of the circumstances
here described, and in our
knowledge that the Phalan-
gists, in coordination with our
own forces, had entered cer-
tain districts to fight terrorists
who were concentrated in
them, there were no grounds
to assume that acts of atrocity
against the civilian population
would be perpetrated."
AMONG THE others who
received warnings from the
commission. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and Gen.
Amos Yaron who was divi-
sional commander in west
Beirut at the time, informed
the commission that they
would submit memoranda but
would not appear again in

he is leaving this Sunday on an
official visit to Uruguay and
Argentina and will not return
to Israel until Dec. 24. He
requested "an appropriate
time extension following my
return" to prepare his
Gen. Amir Drori, com-

their talks as "frank

cussion included Mubarak's
forthcoming visit to Washing-
ton where he is scheduled to
meet with President Reagan
on Jan.23.
MEANWHILE, a ranking
Egyptian official accompany-
ing Mubarak strongly af-
firmed the durability of the
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty
and implied that peace with
Israel took precedence over
other matters in the Middle
East conflict.

Osama Al-Baz, the Under-
secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs, stressed at a separate
press conference that nothing
has changed fundamentally in
relations between Egypt and
Israel despite Egypt's criticism
of many Israeli actions.
The peace between the two
countries is "neither fragile
nor disputable, but per-
manent," he said. He added
that "Egypt will use per-
suasions, not pressure or
threats to influence Israeli
public opinion."
AL-BAZ disclosed that
"there have been recent
contacts between the Palestine
Liberation Organization, and
the Egyptian government in
Egypt" because Egypt con-
siders the PLO to be a
"bridge" to the other Arab
states. He said those contacts
were not publicizaed but that
Egypt was urging the PLO to
recognize Israel.

Egypt is defending
Palestinian rights and by

Egyptian diplomat said. He
added, however, "There is no
rush. Peace is the first choice
and in light of this Egypt is in-
sisting that the PLO must
recognize Israel."
Al-Baz said Egypt and the
U.S. shared the goal of getting
all foreign forces out of
Lebanon. The difference in
their positions is that Egypt
wants Israel to withdraw
unilaterally while the U.S.
seeks the simultaneous with-
drawal of all foreign forces.
Mubarak was in Bonn later
for meetings with West
German Chancellor Helmut
Kahl and other officials on the
Middle East situation. He will
fly to Vienna tomorrow for a
meeting with Chancellor
Burno Kreisky.
MEANWHILE, reports
Irom Amman today said that
the PLO and Jordan have an-
nounced their agreement on a
"special and distinctive rela-
tionship" between Jordan and
a potential Palestinian entity
on the West Bank and Gaza
Strip. One of the main points
of President Reagan's Middle
East initiative was the creation
of a self-governing Palestinian
entity in those territories in as-
sociation with Jordan.
The announcement in
Amman came after two days
of top level talks between King
Hussein and a PLO delegation
headed by PLO chairman
Yasir Arafat. It stated that
Jordan and the PLO would
continue "political moves
together on all fronts" aimed
at establishing Palestinian
rights. The announcement said
nothing about a joint Jordan-
PLO delegation to participate
in future peace talks in the

BONN A neo-Nazi group
that calls for "the liberation of

tains contact with officials at
the Libyan Embassy here ac-
cording to information re-
leased by the Interior Ministry
of Rhineland Palatinate. The
group, which operates in

entitled "We By Ourselves."
One of the subscribers is

West Berlin police, mean-
while, have cracked down on
another neo-Nazi group called
"German Working Youth." A
search of flats yielded
weapons, ammunition, gas
masks and propaganda
material. The police took
action after a Jewish college
student was bound and threat-
ened by three fellow students
taking a judo course at the
police training center in West
The anti-Semitic assault was
called "unbelievable" by
Heinz Galinski, chairman of
the West Berlin Jewish com-
munity. He urged action
against the penetration of Nazi
ideas into the Berlin school
PARIS Paris Chief
Rabbi Alain Goldman in-
augurated a new synagogue in
the Paris suburb of Kremlin
Bicetre in the heart of the
city's "Red Belt" operated for
a generation by Communist
municipalities. Several
thousand Jews, mainly of
North African origin, live in
the area.
Goldman said at the in-
auguration that the new syna-
gogue is part of a general plan
which aims at opening syna-
gogues and community center
in all areas "in which Jews live
and pray."
Forty synagogues have been
built during the last 20 years,
Goldman said. The plan pro-
vides for the construction of
three new synagogues in Paris
itself in areas in which Jews
have settled only in recent
ROME The Jewish com-
munity of Milan is requesting
the status of plaintiff in the
upcoming trial of four sus-
pected terrorists accused of
detonating a bomb at the en-
trance to the Jewish Com-
munity Center at Via Eupili 8
in Milan on the night of Sept.
29-30. The bombing occurred
just nine days before a
machinegun and grenade at-
tack on worshippers outside
the main synagogue in Rome
in which two lives were lost.
-Milan police arrested 14
suspects in the community
center bombing. The four to
go on trial were directly re-
sponsible for the act, accord-
ing to the police. All were
identified as members of the
"Communists Organized for
Proletarian Liberation," a
group linked to several ex-
treme leftwing organizations
and suspected of subversion.
-The organizations are
"Prima Linea," "Autonomia
Operaia Organizzata," and
"Nuclei Combatienli Com-
munisti." They are believed to
work in tandem with the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization for the purpose of
creating panic among Jews.
TEL AVIV An Israeli
freighter rescued 21 seamen
from a foundering Portuguese
tanker in stormy seas west of
Gibraltar last Monday night.
Capt. Ogen Dadiani, master
of the containership Livorno
which is operated by the Zim
Lines, reported the rescue by
wireless to the company's head
office in Haifa.
The Livorno, bound from
New York to Haifa, was the
first ship to answer an SOS
call sent out by the Portuguese
motorship Bandim, a gas
tanker. She picked up 21 sea-
men who had abandoned their
vessel. Two others were res-
cued by a Panamanian ship.
Queen Elizabeth Taylor an-
nounced here that she is em-
harking on a 10-day peace
mission to the Mideast, during
which she said she will meet
with Premier Menachem Begin
of Israel and President Amin
Gemayel of Lebanon. The
actress reportedly will leave
for Israel in a few days.
"I want to bring a sense of
sincere friendship between
myself and the people of
America to Israel," Miss
Taylor said at a press con-
ference here. She also said, "1
want to try to create peace be-
tween Israel and Jordan." The
internationally famous actress
pointed out that she "always
loved going to Israel" and
hoped that she could help re-
vitalize Israel's tourist in-
dustry and bring "its friends
back to the country."
Miss Taylor, who converted
to Judaism in 19S9, two
months before she married
Eddie Fisher, said that during
her Mideast trip she will visit a
Lebanese orphanage and at-
tend a New Year's eve ball in
Tel Aviv.
