Overlooking Jerusalem The newly re-built 400-foot
long porch of Mishkenot Sha'ananim is still supported
by the original iron posts imported from England. Built
outside the Old City walls in 1885, these apartments open
onto a stunning view of Mt. Zion, the Old City, the Val-
ley of Hinnom and the hills of Moab in the Judean desert.
The decision to go ahead with
plans for the plant was taken by
the Cabinet at its weekly meet-
ing. The plant will have a 600-
megawatt capacity and will
probably run on enriched
uranium which Israel will pur-
chase from the U.S.
ISRAEL'S Electric Corpora-
tion signed a contract last year
with the U.S. atomic energy
authority enabling it to buy the
vital fuel from the US Follow
ing the Cabinet decision, the
Electric Corporation will open
concrete negotiations with a
number of potential American
suppliers to decide which of
them k to be awarded the con-
tract to build the plant.
When President Nixon visited
the Mideast last June, he held
out an offer to both Israel and
Egvpt of a nuclear power plant
But subsequent tentative ne-
gotiations with both states were
shelved for various reasons and
a top official said here today
Israel's planned plant was "not
necessarilv" connected with
what was then Nixon's offer.
Artillery is Integrated
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Israeli army has incorporated
new long-range American artillery and is also equipped with
Soviet-made artillery' captured in the Yom Kippur War and the
1967 Six-Day War. it was disclosed.
Gen Nati Sharoni. commander of the artillery corps, said
Israeli artillery has .doubled its fire power since the Yom Kip-
pur War.
The new American artillery is the 155 mm. cannon known
as M-109E which has a range of 1" kilometers According to
Sharoni. the artillery corps has also received new, sophisti-
cated equipment including computers that pin-point targets
increasing the accoracy of fire.

Interpol by Any Other Name
Organization, or Interpol as
most everyone knows it, is the
kind of global police body you
read about in Leon Uris-type
novels or you see in action on
a television thriller.
Always, xhi reference is
quick and sketchy. You are sup-
posed to come away from your
brief encounter with Interpol
washed in th? sacred trust that,
through Interpol. the nations of
the world are somehow linked
in a cooperative war against
YOU DONT ask questions
about Interpol. To ask ques-
tions and demand answers
would be to give Interpol away.
You must have faith in its se-
cret operations because, like
spinach, it's good for you.
So that even if, say, Greece
and the U.S. would rather not
speak to one another these
days, when it comes to world-
wide crime, they are ready at
the flick of a super-sanctimoni-
ous eyelash to drop their
mutual hatreds and gang up on
the nefarious breakers of the
After all, crime is beyond
politics. It's bad for anybody
who lays a claim on decency,
regardless of race, religion,
creed. We all hate crime, par-
ticularly because we all lay a
claim on decency.
ONLY NOW comes the Na-
tional Commission on Law En-
forcement and Social Justice
with information that puts In-
terpol in an entirely different
Even more, because of the
Commission's investigation of
Interpol, the Senate Subcommit-
tee on Treasury Appropriations
has begun hearings on Interpol
under the chairmanship of Sen.
Joseph Montoya (D., N.M.).
The National Commission on
Law Enforcement and Social
Justice is an affiliate of the
Church of Scientology, and
what its year-long, private in-
vestigation uncovered and
handed over to the Senate Sub-
committee will, if the informa-
tion proves to be accurate, do
more than tarnish the sterling
image of Interpol.
ONCE AGAIN, it will find the
U.S. napping at the helm while
someone is gnawing away at
the rudder of the ship of state
even worse, ignorantly lend-
ind assistance to types that in
the McCarthy days, only with
considerably less justification,
we called "subversives."
The National Commission's
information includes succulent
allegations like the following:
Paul Dickopf, president of
Interpol from 1968 to 1972, was
formerly Nazi Intelligence Of-
ficer SS No. 337259;
Interpol was the host to a
conferonce in 1942 on the "final
"it'tigw to the Jewish question"
which, charges the National
Commission, "resulted in a
massacre of six-million Jews";
After the defeat of Hitler
in World War II. it was secret
Nazi funds that bankrolled In-
terpol and lnterpol's intelli-

Achieving the Poetical
Abba Eban's charge that Dr. Kissinger is right
demonstrates that Israel is a democracy, and everyone's
opinion ought to be heard.
Eban was referring to Kissinger's feeling that Israel
derailed his "step-by-step" shuttle train to peace.
But when pressed, Eban said that no, he didn't
really mean that. What he meant was that Israel could
have done it all another way.
How? He doesn't say. Which probably explains Mr.
Eban's political eclipse. Much as we love him, there's
no getting away from the fact that he is great at speech-
making that achieves the poetical. But somehow, it
misses the practical.

Can America Escape History?
Volume 1
Friday, May 23, 1975
Number 7
13 SIVAN 5735
Los Angeles Times Syndicate
"We cannot escape history,"
said Lincoln in a much-quoted
message to Congress. Anyone
watching the tug of war in the
United States today over for-
eign policy must wonder
whether America is to escape
history or whether history has
already eliminated America as
a commanding world power.
With the resignation oi Pres-
ident Nguyen Van Thieu of
South Vietnam, the disastrous
American effort to prop up his
regime is at an end.
ADAPTING Graham Greene's
phrase from his novel. "Our
Man in Havana," Thieu was
"our man in Saigon." At various
times in various capitals the
United States has tried to sup-
port "our men" as a counter-
force to Soviet or Chinese Com-
munist-trained political figures.
Thts was part of a worldwide
political war, in which the Com-
munist leaders have had the ad-
vantage of ideology, charisma,
political legendry, guerrilla
skills, propaganda, cohesion and
shorter access to supply bases.
The ending of Thieu's tenure
of power, after a decade, also
marks the ending of a historic
phase in America's world posi-
tion and poses a great question
mark about what the next phase
will be.
IN SAYING farewell to Thieu.
u America also saying farewell
to the long-range political war
which has marked Us history
since the last years of Franklin
Roosevelt, more than 30 years
ago? And therefore farewell to
No one knows the answer to
this question, because the an-
swer is being hammered out bv
President Ford. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, the con-
gressional leaders, the media
elites, the intellectual elites the
people themselves.
TWO THINGS are clear to
start with. First, that whatever
"hegemony (De Gaulle's phrase)
America had in the years of
Truman. Eisenhower and Ken-
nedy is gone now.
But this doesn't mean that
America may not continue as a
"coequal" with the Soviet Union
and Communist China, none of
them dominant and all having
to accept the fact of a number
of other power centers in the
Second. It is clear that
America is saying farewell to
all future Vietnams, wherever
they may arise to beckon.
VIETNAM NOT only took ita
toll of American lives and treas-
ure, as other wars have done.
but even worse it was the
most internally divisive war in
American history since the Civil
War. We say goodby to all that,
and a good riddance.
But to dismiss America's
false nonroles in the world still
leaves the question of what is
to be America's true world role.
Will America, having discard-
ed its adventures in imperial-
ism, still continue as a world
poweran "imperium" or pow-
er mass? Or will it go the way
the British went when, after
World War II and Churchill.
they converted in effect from
a world power mass to a "little
England," with its classes and
parties quarreling over the di-
vision of an ever-smaller cut
of power and income pie?
THE WORLD wants to know

to know (witness Yigal Alton's

issued an appeal for adult volun-
teers to serve as Big Brothers
and Big Sisters to Palm Beach
County youngsters between the
the ages of 6 and 16.
"The Big Brother Big Sister
program which began this
month is based on the premise
that children, in order to ivnch
their full capacity as adults,
need the influence of a mature
and responsible adult figure
during their formative years,"
said Thomas Esslinger, execu-
tive director of Family Counsel-
ing-Travelers Aid.
The new program will match
children with adult volunteers
who will spend at least five
hours per week together in both
individual and group activities.
The Big Brother-Big Sister
program will attempt to reach
some of the 3,000 children of
single parents in Palm Beach
County who can benefit by the
companionship and influence of
an adult volunteer.
Applications for adult Big
Brothers and Big Sisters are
now being accepted at the main
office of Family Counseling-
Travelers Aid at 208 Clematis
St, Suite 403, West Palm Beach.
Applications from single parents
with children will be accepted
beginning May 15.
"This program needs the com-
munity's support," Esslinger
said, "both in terms of adult
volunteers and financing."
"Big Brothers and Big Sis-'
ters," Esslinger added, "often
lessen the pressure on the sin-,
gle parent trying to cope with
all aspects of the child's life.
"We feel the 3ig Brother-Big;
Sister program is a further com-
mitment on the part of this I
agency to provide meaningful
services to residents of Palm
Beach County."
Bruce Daniels, Federation
board member, is chairman;
Esther Sokol. Federation's di-
rector of community education,
is serving on the Citizen's Ad-
visory Board.

Ma'alot: One Year Later
The name coniures up visions
of young bodies, ripped and
bleeding. Of screaming ambu-
lances and flashes of gunfire re-
flected in hanging plasma bot-
On May 15, 19?4, Ma'alot sud-
denly put in an appearance on
the map of Israel, a bright red
splash in the emerald Galilee.
They've cleaned up the blood-
stains and repaired the shatter-
ed windows in the Netiv Meir
School. Fist-sized holes, punch-
ed in an outside wall by heavy
machine gun fire, still remain.
Swallows nest in them now.
The children don't talk
about the massacre. But the
soldiers stationed in the school-
yard are watchful, unsmilin?ly
alert, determined that the dis-
aster will never recur.
People are beginning to go
out at night again. They lock
their doors, they take their
children along. They stay to-
gether in groups for safety. But
they go out.
Ma'alot. one year later. But
the great problems of daily ex-
istence still weigh heavily on its
it ft
Ma'alot is home to 4.500 peo-
ple, a village of 800 dwellings.
Today. 1.600 new housing units
are on the way up. But where
are the newcomers?
Ma'alot desperately needs
live-in teachers, doctors, other
professionals. The town is cry-
ing for academicians and skilled
workers to come and settle, to
raise the living standard, im-
prove the cultural level. There
is room for 1.000 Israelis. 5.000
new immigrantsa sorely need-
ed shot-in-the-arm for a stag-
nating community.
Mayor Ben-Ya'akov feels very'
stronglv about the obligations
of Jewish youth in the Diaspora.
"Young Jews from America and
the West should become per-
sonally involved in Israel, par-
ticularly Northern Israel," he
Another deeply concerned
citizen of Ma'alot. American-
born Bernika Silverstein. head
nurse in the town clinic, feels
that there has been some im-
provement over the past year.
"We saw a lot of emotional
troubles after the disaster.'' she
says, "but they are beginnins to
recede. Last year, dormant
problems, catalyzed by the
shock, came boiling upnow,
the community's basic good
health is beginning to show."
Following the disaster, the re-
sponse of the Israel Govern-
ment, of world Jewry, even of
nonsectarian organizations, was
swift and welcome. Things
started to happen which make
living in Ma'alot a little easier:
A team of doctors from
Tel Hashomer Hospital, over 90
miles away in Ramat Gan,
promised mental care to Ma'a-
lot's citizenry.
Through the UJA's Israel
Education Fund, the Grass
Family Foundation of Harris-
burg, Pennsylvania, is financing
a modern, well-equipped Com-
munity Center, now being built.
Garin Oded is a group of
a dozen teenagers from all over
Israel. They are donating a year
of their lives to the service of
Ma'alot, after they finish high
school and before they enter the
Army. Working without pay,
they are busy day and night in
schools, youth clubs, and under-
privileged homes.
& ir ir
Ma'alot's future looks good.
The forecast calls for the Town
Council's elevation to Munici-
pality status by 1980, with a
city population of 18,000. Plans
include a new high school, more
housing, a 375-acre Industrial
Park, development of cultural.
commercial and entertainment
And, of course, people.
What kind of man will leave
the convenience of his home,
the security of a good job, the
roots of his birthplace, the com-
fort of friends and relatives
and go to live in Ma'alot?
The answer is simple: The
same kind of Jew who walked
from Europe to the Holy Land
in the 1880s; who built Eretz
Israel in the 1920s, despite ma-
laria, drought and starvation;
who struggled against British
pressures during the Mandate,
then in 1948 wrested the new-
born Jewish State from the
hands of five Arab armies; and
who. today, see Ma'alot and
dozens of development, towns
like itas the foundation of a
secure future for Israel.

Jewish-Christian Ties
Eyed at AJComm. Meeting
The progress of Jewish -
Christian relations and the
"common cause" American
Jews must make with the
Black community "against
the enemies of justice" were
the two themes aired at the
69th annual meeting of the
American Jewish Commit-
tee at the Waldorf Astoria
Hotel here attended by more
than 1,000 Jewish leaders.
Catholic, Protestant and
Jewish theologians concur-
red in the view that Chris-
tian-Jewish relations had
improved over the past year
but also agreed that much
remained to be done.
man of the New York State
Moreland Act Commission and
a prominent lawyer and civil
libertarian, declared that the
future of both Jews and Blacks
required them to overlook their
differences and together "pro-
gress towards justice through
democratic means."
"Jews and Blacks historically
have been vulnerable people"
Abram said.
".The state of their security
can almost be said to serve as
barometric measures of the so-
cial climate. When the state
trespasses on the liberty of the
Jew, the freedom of all is soon
in peril. When joblessness of
the Blackalways higher than
that of the general publicbe-
gins to escalate, you can be sure
that the economy is on the slide
and even Chrysler will be in
ther that Jews and Blacks had
many problems in common be-
cause the Jewish population of
the U.S. is substantially urban
and the Black population is
rapidlv becoming so.
The reasons wny room exists
for improvement m Christian-
Jewish relations despite wide
areas of progress were noted at
a press conference by the Rev.
Edward H. Flannery, director of
the Secretariate for Catholic-
Jewish Relations of the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops;
the Rt. Rev. John Harris Burt,
Episcopal Bishop of Ohio and
chairman of the Interrengious
Coalition Board of the National
Council of Churches; and Rabbi
Marc H. Tannenbaum, director
e* th AJComnnttee-s Intarre-
Hgious Affairs Department
that since the new Vatican
Guidelines on Jews were issued
in January, there had been an
upswing in Catholic interest in
improving relations with Jews
for the first time since 1967.
Jews, Arabs
Clash In
The Australian government
was asked to give assur-
ances that pro-PLO sym-
pathizers would not be al-
lowed to import Middle East
violence. The leader of the
opposition, Malcolm Fraser,
called for the assurance
after a violent clash Sunday
between Jewish students and
Arab supporters in Mel-
The clash was the most
serious outbreak of violence
between local Jews and Arab
supporters since the politics
of the Middle East became
a significant issue in Austra-
lia after the Yom Kippur
War. In the fighting Sunday-
more than 20 people were
injured: two Jewish students
were taken to the hospital,
and a 70-year-old Jewish
spectator received severe
head injuries after being
beaten with a banner pole.
THE CLASH erupted outside

THE CABINET session was devoted largely to

corruption might have been avoided.
The Cabinet instructed Finance Minister Yea

SINCE THEN, the number of Federation-main-

so did the number of residents. But this is not enough
to meet the needs of the growing number of elderlv
Jews who must be taken care of.
New methods of care for such Jews have there-
fore been introduced recently in a number of com-
jrunities by the local Federation*. Considering care
for the elderly as of top priority among local obliga-
tions, leaders In these'communities have formed
Councils for Jewish Elderly, or Community Councils
on the Aging, with a broad range of services.
A good example of what can be done for elderly
Jews in need is the comprehensive program now de-
veloped by the recently-established Council tar Jew-
ish gjjferly in Chicago.

consider homes for the aged and nursing homes es-
sential to the total care for some Jewish aged, but
only in situations where such care is appropriate,
and never a total answer to the problems of aging
In the course of one year, the Council has given
sen-ice to more than 5,000 different older people in
a target community which is estimated to have about
7,000 aged Jews.

pp.) U an account of the North African Zird
princes who ruled Moslem Spain in the 11th
century. It was during this period that Jews
rose to the high office of vizier.
The author is a professor of history at the
University of Miami. He reports that Granada
was known as "the City of the Jews" and
"Granada of the Jews." The book's principal
theme is the Moslem rule, but interspersed
throughout it are the interactions between the
Moslems and Jews.
WHILE THERE was only one real pogrom
during the reign of the Zirds, the animosity
against the Jews spread from Granada to Jaen.
The Naghrallas, Isma'il and his son, Yusuf. both
noted Jews, played important roles in this little
known period of newish history.

of the Hebrew University, writes: "Anyone who
say the Arabs from the Old City of Jerusalem
after the war of June, 1967, when the gates
were opened and they poured in by the thou-

them, cannot believe that the roots of hatred
run deep."
THE EGYPTIAN woman journalist. Sana
Hassan, was asked about Arab hatred of Is-
raelis during a public dialogue which she and
the Israeli, Amos Elon, conducted before nu-
merous audiences in the United States.
In a new book "Between Enemies." which
expands on that dialogue, she replies: "Anti-
Semitism is only a kind of war-time racism in
the Arab world. It's the kind that Allied propa-
ganda generated about the Germans in World
War II, and the Americans about the Japanese,
to mobilize popular emotion at home. It is in-

Tel Aviv
TfHE ISRAEL Sports Federation here has been advised by
Freddy Oberland, Montreal, that Victor Silberman, contro-
versial wrestler who "jumped" to Canada recently, will be re-
turning to Israel to complete arrangements for his training pro-
gram prior to the 1976 Olympics.
Apparently there was quite a mix-up, in the whole set of
affairs and as matters stand here at this point, it appears that
Silberman is on the way back and all is well and he is forgiven.
He can still continue his training program as well as for his
teaching schedule.
THE ISRAELIS were quite upset over his sudden departure
since it appears extremely likely that Silberman is a good choice
for Israel's first Olympic medal in infrnational competition at
that level. Consequently, the papers here played up his de-
parture to extreme lengths. .
The Israel National Basketball Team, now in the States,
started off its invasion with an easy victory in Rochester. New
York over St. John Fisher. 86-73. If the two-week tour, which
will see the boys playing a total of eight gamess. ends up 4-4,
the Israelis will have done quite well since competition this year,
as compared to last year's opposition, is much tougher. With
such teams as Houston, United States Naval Academy. Villinova
and Siena on the schedule, it is hard to envision a clean sweep
for the National team.
PRIOR TO departing for the States the Israeli squad played
an exhibition game against the Israel Sabras. a professional
team, in the European Professional Basketball League, in the
Yad Eliyahu Stadium-
Some 5.000 screaming fans looked on as the pros handled
the Nationals with comparative ease, once they solved the zone
defense Co:*ch Hemmo imposed. At one time the Sabras lead by
close to 30 points but Coach Herb Brown of the home pros kept
his second team in for the greater nirt of the second half.
The final score showed a difference of 21 points. .
THE SABRAS started their season verv slowlv in Israel,
mainlv because they opened on the road and were knocked off
in their first four ga^es. Once thev got hc^ie to Tel Aviv they
befcan to play the ball they are capable of displaying and quickly
begin to overshadow the opposition. At the latest standing the
Sabra* w-re s-cond in the league two and one half games be-
hind B-Igium.
Switzerland is third. Germany is fourth and the Spanish
five is at the bottom of the heap. All Five clubs are employing
professionals from the NBA and ABA. players who are either
on the wav un or the way down.
THE TYPE of basketball Israelis are seeing was described
by one writer as "basketball out of this world." By comparison
to the amateur brand of ball that exists in Europe and the Middle
East, the professionals are much quicker and have better skills
so that the diff-rence in habits is discernable to those who un-
derstand basketball there.
As a matter of fact, two few of the writers covering the
basketball beat have seen enough top flite ball to appreciate the
execution of the Sabras and their opponents in the games which
have been played in Israel thus far.
IT WILL take quite a while for professional basketball to
catch on here, but once it does it can take off since, basically,
the people here enjoy the game.
In addition, due to the late start of the Sabras it was diffi-
cult to coordinate the schedule of the professionals with that of
the armteura so that at one point here recently la a period of
ten days some nine games were played. Obviously, no city, in-
cluding New York, can afford to swppert each game heavily so
that, unfortunately, all parties involved suffered to some extent.
Reports from California reaching back here indicate that
Esther Roth, the Israeli female sprinter, is unhappy with her
training program at San Diego and consequently is moving up
to Los Angeles where she hopes to find conditions more to her
liking. ___
