Only Sen. Mondale
Nixed Gen. Brown
WASHINGTON (JTA) Of the six Senators whom
Democratic Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter interviewed to be
his possible running mate, only Walter Mondale of Minnesota
opposed retention of Air Force Gen. George S. Brown as chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
In the latest issue of concern to the Jewish community to come
before the Senate, 57 Senators voted July 1 for an additional two-
year term for Brown while 34 were opposed.
SEN. FRANK CHURCH of Idaho, one of the six considered
by Carter to be his Vice Presidential running mate, was among nine
Senators who did not vote on the nomination.
The other four Sens. John Glenn, of Ohio; Henry Jackson,
of Washington; Edmund Muakie, of Maine; and Adlai Stevenson ,
of Illinois voted for Brown.
Among the opponents ironically was James Abourezk (D..
S.D.), who supported the PLO's position in the Senate debate or!
Israel-Arab issues.
The issue broke partisan ranks, and Republicans and
Democrats were in alliance on opposite sides in the voting.
DURING THE hearings on Brown's re-nomination, the
Genera] reiterated the views he had expressed 19 months earlier at
Duke University when he said Jews had undue influence in
This time, however, he affirmed that he saw nothing improper
in Jews trying to influence Congress since other groups were doing
the same thing.

Mrs. Bloch 'No Longer Alivi
i nwnnv htm m_ __ ^-*
the best knowledge of the
British government, Mrs.
Dora Bloch "is no longer
alive," the Minister of State
at the Foreign Office, Edward
Rowlands, told Parliament
July 12. "In whatever cir-
cumstances Mrs. Bloch's
death took place, the Uganda
government must bring those
responsible to justice," he
said, adding that the
government would press
"most strongly" for this.
He said the government
was not satisfied with the
results of inquiries made by
the Ugandan authorities. A
newspaper in Nairobi, Kenya,
reported July 13 that the
partly burned body of Mrs.
Bloch was seen in a forest 11
miles from Kampala, the
Ugandan capital.

on a BBC interview that the
information was supplied by a
Ugandan who said he saw the
body of a white woman which
was charred except for its right
hand and a leg which was
The Ugandan was not iden-
tified. Labor MP Michael Foot,
leader of the House of Commons,
said July 12 that he was unable
to confirm this report. According
to the newspaper, the informant
said he had gone to the forest
with a party of Ugandan soldiers
and that he saw the bodies of
three Entebbe Airport radar
operators near the body of the

place where people are shot or
bodies dumped and where
families go to search for missing

conclusion about the fate of Mrs
Bloch, a 75-year-old Air France
hijack hostage who held dual
British-Israeli citizenship, was
based on the report given the
Foreign Office by the British
High Commissioner for Uganda,
James Hennessy.
Hennessy returned from
Kampala July 12 after a fruitless
mission to ascertain the
whereabouts of Mrs. Bloch.
Rowlands said, "There seems
little doubt that Mrs. Bloch was
taken from her room at Mulago
Hospital (in Kampala) at about
9:30 a.m. local time on July 4 and
that she is no longer alive."
He expressed condolences to
her family. The time of her
removal from the hospital
confirmed that, contrary to
Ugandan claims, she was at the
hospital when Israeli commandos
rescued more than 100 hostages
being held at Entebbe Airport
during the night of July 3.

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Issues Being Clarified
For better or worse, the Democratic nominee is Jimmy'
Carter of Georgia. Clearly, we hope for the better. And
while much of the criticism directed against the Governor is
that he is "vague" on the major issues, hopefully it seems
to us that what occurred at Madison Square Garden both
before and after his nomination has already begun to clarify
the vagaries.
To a c< ~*derable extent, it seems to us, such
clarification as may have occurred there came with the
nomination of Sen. Walter Mondale as Cater's running
A chip off the old Hubert Humphrey block, Mondale,
along with Carter, will be forces with which to recon in the
future whether they win or not.
Addendum to Platform
For the Jewish community, there is particular hope in
these nominations. Victor Bienstock, retired general
manager of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, writing in The
Jewish Floridian of July 9, raised the spectral possibility of
George Ball, an inveterate foe of Israel, as secretary of
state in a future Carter cabinet.
But the Moynihan statement on Entebbe, tacked on as
an addendum to the Democratic platform and accepted by
voice acclaim at the convention, warms the hears of those of
us who have for too long lived in the shadow of an ad-
ministration inured to the finest achievements and highest
ideals of the State of Israel.
Bienstock is a skilled observer of the political scene,
and one should not take his warnings lightly. But we must
hope that the Carter-Mondale nominations, the Anderson-
Moynihan addendum, and the avowal the other day by
Stuart Eizenstat, Carter's issues director, reminding us of
Carter's statement on Soviet Jewry can set our hearts at
rest on the possibility of a Ball in the Carter administration
and what that would mean for Jews here at home and
That statement was: "I would keep the right of Soviet
Jews to emigrate to other countries as one of the
preeminent considerations in all of my negotiations with
the Soviet Union."
Soft on issues? Not now at least not for the moment.
Mexico at it Again
Mexico has again shocked the Jewish people by
sending a letter to the United Nations Security Council
attacking Israel's rescue of hostages at Uganda's Entebbe
Airport. Despite the Mexican government's claim of
friendship for Israel, its lates action can be seen as nothing
less than an anti- Israel attack.
The letter calls the Israeli rescue mission "a flagrant
violation both of the Charter of the United Nations and of
universally accepted principles of international law."
Many believe that the Mexican position is the result of
Echeverria's seeking the support of the Afro-Asian bloc for
election as UN Secretary General. It is no secret that
Echeverria, who leaves the Presidency in December, has
been campaigning in the Third World camp for the UN job
for more than a year. Israeli Ambassador Chaim Herzog
spotlighted what he termed Mexico's incredible and in-
comprehensible act by labeling it "political expediency."
But by its action the Mexican government actually
joins those who are preventing any action against
Negotiation a Priority
The United States, in vetoing a recommendation in the
Security Council to condemn Israel, said that not only was
it one-sided but that "the political interests of the
Palestinians and their role in a final Mideast settlement
constitute a matter that must be negotiated between the
parties before it can be defined in resolutions" of the
Security Council.
This is just what the Palestinians did not want. The
hijacking of the Tel Aviv-to-Paris Air France plane was
another example of the willingness of the Palestinians to
endanger the lives of innocent people in order to achieve
their own one-sided objectives.

Nixon Shoved at Us Again
BY THIS time,
little has been missed in
commentary on Jimmy Carter
and Walter Mondale.
The pundits thrive on com-
mentary. They are experts in the
field. If anything has not been
said, it is not worth saying. Or
else, like the Republicans, they
are silent because they are still
busy digging for an Eagleton
equivalent, one may be sure.
BUT IF there is nothing that
has not been said, I have a hunch
that there is a lot that has been
said that should not have been
said resulting from the sweat of a
correspondent's compulsion to
fill a column, no doubt to k.

with his strong name, Walter
buried in the rural splendor of
good-old "Fritz," and my
prejudice bristles uncontrollably.
But none of this, all of which is
fairly irrelevant as worthwhile
criticism of either man as u
effective candidate, is political.
What is political, however, and
indeed inexcusable, is the Miami
Herald editorial of July 13,
signed D. S., in which Editorialist
Don Shoemaker fits his last to
the club foot of his own
ideological infirmity. Essentially,
the Democratic convention had
not even begun, and D.S. wu
already making reference to it at
"tribal rites."
AS FOR Carter, he was not
simply Jimmy Carter in that July
13 abomination, but "Jimmy

over again.
In this style of the subtle
sidewinder, he fired off salvos

his own durability, for he decided
not long after that he'd rather not
be President than have to endure
the incredible nonsense of
becoming a 'viable' candidate."
Or, as he told the reporters just
before the announcement of his
selection by presidential nominee
Jimmy Carter, who did endure
the "incredible nonsense" and
survived: "I just couldn't picture
spending the next two years in
Holiday Inn motels."
Further, I wrote in that
column: "It is safe now for me to
say that I can think of few better
qualified men for the position,
and that the elimination of men
like Walter Mondale is a sad
reflection on the entire system "
OBVIOUSLY, I am pleased
that Jimmy Carter, another long
shot upon whom I staked my
liberal credentials, had a similar
perception of the man from
Minnesota. As Ted Kennedy is
quoted. "I'm delighted the first
important decision Jimmy Carter
has made has been one of great
importance and consequence.
Walter Mondale will provide an
additional dimension to the
Democratic ticket." A quiniela,
The last time the choice of a
candidate for Vice President had
such cliff-hanging interest was in
1956, when Ted's brother John
almost made it because the
Democratic presidential nominee,
Adlai Stevenson, had naively
decided to throw the question to
the delegates. The chaos that
followed the second ballot is only
believable if you were on the
convention floor in Chicago.
I was there with my suitcase
packed and putting the lid on my
typewriter (I was then reporting
for a New Jersey newspaper),
having filed my story that Estes
Kefauver was the man and
making ready to catch a plane
back home.
KEFAUVER had taken a good
lead on the first ballot with
Kennedy, a comparative
unknown, who was viewed
suspiciously by liberals and
middle America alike, sur-
prisingly in second.
But then Lyndon Johnson and
Sam Rayburn swung Texas into
the Kennedy column and he went
ahead on the second ballot,
apparently close to victory.
But it was not to be for-
tunately for him, I suppose, that
he did not lose with Stevenson -
for before the official count was
announced some states began to
demand recognition for the
purpose of changing their votes.
The bedlam of sound, the calls
for recognition by the chair, the
requests to clear aisles jammed
with emissaries trying to con-
vince others to shift votes, all are
still a vivid memory.
IT IS said by some that John
McCormack, who had a family
feud going in Massachusetts with
the Kennedys, fooled Chairman
Sam Rayburn into recogninng
Missouri which made
significant change
Kefauver. That switch broke it
open for the Tennessee Senator,
according to the official history.
My own version is that
Kennedy was robbed (I favored
Kefauver), and if the story

at least accurage as to the

MONTREAL (JTA) Seven members of Israel's Olympic
team were surrounded by a tight security net when they arrived
here for the games. An armed Canadian soldier sat in front of the
bus transporting the team on the ride from the airport and a
helicopter flew overhead.
The widows of three of the 11 Israeli athletes who were killed
by terrorists at the Munich Olympics four years ago accompanied
the Israeli team. Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau was due to
attend a memorial service here for the 11 slain Israelis. Members of
the 1976 Israeli Olympic team and relatives of the victims par-
ticipated in the hour-long service.
BEFORE THE service was to be held at the S ha are

They also conducted a search of the surrounding area and of a

Neighboring streets were closed, and a fire station in the area

meeting of the board of directors.
Levitt is well qualified for the
position, having spent five of the

in Lynn, Mass. This past year
Levitt was with the New York

was that the coming five years
could bring another doubling in
the funds for Israel raised by
these two principal fund-raising
delegates to "take back to your
communities this message of
vision and reality because the
reality of tomorrow depends on
our vision today."
He said the Assembly would be

"Most of the Jews in Congress
appeared somewhat confused and
unsophisticated about Mideast
issues." They tend to support the
status quo and seem "to equate
Palestinians with the Palestine
Liberation Organization."
Those findings emerged from a
survey by David M. Szonyi and
Amy Stone who interviewed the
24 Jewish members of Congress.
The results of the survey were
published in "Interchange," the
bulletin of Breira, a condensed
version, prepared by Paul
Jacobs, appeared in the July
issue of "Mother Jones," a new
monthly magazine published in
San Francisco.
ACCORDING TO the survey,
most Jewish members of
Congress relied on Near Bast
Report, publication of the
American-Israel Public Affairs
Committee, and on the Israel
Embassy in Washington for their
information on Middle East
issues. "Only one of two

and even eager to have non-Jews
take the credit for measures that

Gen. Gur Under Fire
JERUSALEM (JTA) Members of the Knesset,.
Foreign Affairs and Security Committee have complained to
Premier Yitzhak Rabin over the disclosure of top secret
details of the July 3 Uganda rescue operation by Chief 11
Staff Gen. Mordechai Gur.
The committee members
said that Gur, who held a
press conference in Tel Aviv,
made public facts that the
MKs had received in strictest
secrecy. Rabin reportedly told
the committee members that
he had not authorized any
publicity and had no advance
knowledge of the Gur press
said the Chief of Staff did not
require permission from the
Premier to hold a press con-
ference. They said he got his
approval "from whoever he
should have gotten it," meaning,
apparently. Defense Minister
Shimon Peres.
Gur made several disclosures
about the rescue mission a week
ago that had not been known
previously. He said the Israeli
rescue force included para-
troopers, infantrymen, mem-
bers of the crack Golani
Brigade, communications and
ordnance men. He said 33 doctors
participated, either at Entebbe
airport or at other stations.
Gur also disclosed that the
entire operation was rehearsed
the night before it took place and
that the rehearsal lasted two
minutes longer than the actual
rescue operation, which was
completed in 53 minutes.
FOUR OF the Air France
hijackers, including the German
man and woman, were killed
within 45 seconds of the Israeli
landing, and three other
terrorists were killed a few
seconds later.
Finally, Gur said that the
decision to land at Nairobi,
Kenya, before returning to Israel
was made at the last minute in
order to hospitalize the wounded.
The fact that the three Israeli
military transports landed briefly

small state defending itself
against a common enemy of
Mexico and Israel, namely,
international terror.
"We have always followed with
understanding the very active
campaign that Mexico is con-
ducting against the terrorism
which affects it. We are therefore
all the more surprised that
Mexico is unable to reveal a
similar measure of understanding
when action is taken designed to
combat terror in cases where ibe
victims are not Mexicans."

THE ANXIETY and outright
gloom expressed by many of
them stemmed from the fact that
unlike the lightning raid at

the Jewish people by assimilation
cannot be reversed by courage,
bravery or technological skills.
Its ramifications are too
complex, its progress too subtle

The purpose of the symposium
was to examine the historic roots
of assimilation and its various
types and trends throughout
Jewish history and today.
Assimilation in open societies,
assimilation in authoritarian
societies, assimilation under
pressure such as in the Soviet
Union and assimilation even in
Israel, were the subject of lec-
tures delivered by the various
authorities on Jewish history and
contemporary life
ALL AGREED that the world
Jewish population is shrinking
because of assimilation, inter-
marriage and the decline in the
Jewish content of life in Israel as
well as in the diaspora Prof.
Joseph Nedava, of Haifa
University, claimed that were it
not for assimilation, the Jewish
people today would number 200
million. Jewish history, he said,
was actually the history of those
remnants that clung to their faith
and identity despite pogroms and

noted the paradox of renewed
Jewish solidarity going hand-in-
hand with increasing cultural,
social and political assimilation.
Even in Israel, where Jewish
culture is based on Hebrew and

includes many basic elements of
Jewish history and tradition, the
influence of Western values is

content recedes, he said.
whether the creation of the State
of Israel, the development of
Hebrew and the revival of Jewish
group consciousness would be
sufficient to strengthen Jewish
religious values and spiritual
enrichment. Memories of the
Holocaust and the hostility of the
gentile environment are not
strong enough to prevent cultural
and social assimilation, he said.
Prof. S. A. McCartney, of
Oxford University, who spoke
about British Jewry from the
viewpoint of a non-Jew, said
Jews in England felt no need for
assimilation apart from its
outward manifestations. He
expressed fear, however, that the
anti-colored feelings spreading in
Britain may also have an anti-
Semitic content.
Katzir, who chaired a special
session on the influence of Israel
on world Jewry, said the Jewish
diaspora must be encouraged to
remain Jewish. He said Israel
had to cooperate with the
diaspora for the benefit of the
latter and for itself so that Jewish
youth can be inculcated with
Jewish traditions and the highest
moral values of Judaism.
president of the American Jewish
Congress, said the creation of
Israel had a positive influence on
American Jewry. On the other
hand, he said, a Jew in the
diaspora who does not feel
himself to be part of Israel will
not be able to remain a Jew.
The problem of Soviet Jewry
was discussed at length. Par

Allon visited Mexico last March.
Alexander M. Schindler,
chairmen of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, who is
presently in Israel, condemned
the Mexican letter. Addressing a
press conference in Tel Aviv July
14, Schindler said the Mexican
position contradicted the promise
mads by President Luis
Echeverria bet year that Mexico
would not participate in any anti-
Zionist actions at the UN.
Although Israelis are deeply
perturbed by Mexico's stand, a
large delegation of Israeli
university professors waa
scheduled to leave for that
country this week to attend a
scientific congress. Prof. Gideon
Scafaki, Rector of the Hebrew
University, said, "We have gone
to worse countries. People went
to the USSR at the worst time."

Hospital in Haifa, said he and
fellow emigres made a survey on
the feelings of Soviet Jews
toward Israel and found that
while there was no regression in
the revival of Jewish feelings
among them, Israel had failed to
take advantage of the revival.
He said aliya from the Soviet
Union has slowed down because
of objective factors such as the
state of Israel's economy end the
security situation. Nudelman
noted that the Uganda operation
was likely to start a new wave of
immigration from the Soviet
Union, as the Six-Day War did
after 1967.
Dr. Sergio Delia Pergola, of
the Hebrew University, said the
50 percent inter-marriage rate
among Soviet Jewry was the
same as in Western Europe and
higher than in the U.S. where
inter-marriage is said to run at 40
percent. He said Israel needed to
combat the demographic crisis by
intensifying Jewish education in
Israel and in the diaspora.

University next year, criticized
the state of relations between
Israel and iaspora Jews. He said
reciprocity was limited to those
Jews who decide to immigrate to
Israel while those who remain
where they are are ignored.
He said it was a mistake to
maintain contacts only on the
basis of voluntary financial
assistance. He urged that
Americans who come to Israel
should be sent not only to pick
fruits and harvest vegetables.
There are scientists and scholars
among American Jews. Let them

and learn its ways, Breznitz said.

Fri Weakest Plank In Platform Is Soviet Issue
Strong Carter Pitch Being Made for Jewish Vol
NEW YORK (JTA) The issue of Soviet Jewry, which
some consider to be the weakest plank in the platform adopted
by the Democratic National Convention, is expected to get
more specific attention during the upcoming election campaign.
Only hours before Jimmy Carter won the Democratic
nomination for the Presidency in a first ballot victory July 14,
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was told that one of his top
aides met with members of the New York delegation to the
convention and representatives of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry in an attempt to reassure them on the former
Georgia Governor's stand.
Candidates like Sen. Henry M.
Jackson of Washington, Sen.
Hubert H. Humphrey of Min-
nesota, and Rep. Morris Udall of
Arizona, who had strong Jewish
support, all announced their
endorsement of Carter.
Rep. James H. Scheuer, who
represents a district in Brooklyn
and Queens, said that Carter
appears to be strong on Israel.
But he said that the Jewish
community will want to know
how he feels about domestic
issues of concern to Jews,
especially the issue of quotas.
HE SAID Jews are very con-
cerned about the use of quotas in
employment and education since
they feel it is discriminatory.
Scheuer noted that the Jewish
delegates do not have a caucus
such as Blacks or women.
Scheuer said he did not believe
that the reported Jewish concern
over Carter's evangelistic
religious beliefs will play an
important part in whether Jews
vote for him.
He said he saw Carter in-
terviewed on television and has
come to the conclusion that he is
a "tough" politician in the mold
of the Kennedys and Lyndon
Johnson and will make decisions
on a pragmatic basis rather than
on his religious views.
delegate was Rabbi Israel
Friedman, a membei of the
Satmar Hasidic sect who was
elected as a Jackson delegate
from New York.
He was noncommittal on both
the platform and Carter, saying
he had to know more about both.
There were several other Hasids
in the New York delegation, and
several Hasids were among the
10,000 members of the press
covering the convention.
Carter has been making a'
special effort to win support of
Jews because of his poor showing
among Jewish voters during the
primary campaigns. He only
received about four percent of the
Jewish vote in the New York
Atlanta, Ga., Jew and Carter's
issues director, who met with the
group concerned with Soviet
Jewry, told them that Carter
accepts the Democratic Party's
platform. The platform mentions
Soviet Jewry only by implication
but one source said that everyone
understands that it means that
the Democrats support the
struggle for Soviet Jews to be
allowed to emigrate.
Eizenstat read a statement
made by Carter in May in which
the Georgian said: "I would keep
the right of Soviet Jews to
emigrate to other countries as
one of the preeminent con-
siderations in all of my
negotiations with the Soviet

Sherer said that the ac-
celerating rates of in-
termarriage and assimilation
which have hit the South
American Jewish com-
munities requires the building
of new bridges between North
and South American religious
Jewry for mutual action to
combat this common plague.
SHERER, who addressed the
25th anniversary dinner at the
end of the four-day conference,
marking the 25th anniversary oi
the founding of Torah
educational institutions in
Argentina by Agudath Israel,
paid special tribute to the new
Kollel graduate school recently
opened here.
He stated that the Kollel, the
only school of higher Torah
research in Latin America, will
enable the "native-born yeshiva
deans and teachers to expand
Torah education in Latin
America, similar to the
revolution in yeshiva education
wrought in the United States by
American-born day school
Sherer charged that the
"South American Program"
started by the World Zionist
Organization with a $3.5 million
appropriation over three years to
halt the ebbing away of Jewish
life on that continent, is
"misdirected because the bulk of
these funds are spent for Jewish
education programs not baaed on
traditional observance."
country and our country."
CARTER SAID one of the
advantages he would seek is the
emigration of Jews from the
USSR. Carter, in public
statements, has said he prefers
quiet diplomacy in seeking
emigration for Soviet Jews.
But one source said July 15
that while Carter wants to carry
out personal diplomacy, it does
not mean he would be unwilling
to use pressure, such as the
Jackson- Vanik Amendment, if he
felt it was necessary. Many of the
participants at the meeting were
reportedly convinced although
they are expected to seek more
public assurances.
Meanwhile, in an interview
with the JTA, David Berg,
deputy director of the Carter
campaign's Jewish community
coordination or the "Jewish
desk" at the Atlanta campaign
headquarters, said that "Jimmy
Carter is so sound on the issues
that concern us (American Jews)
that I have no fear in answering"
the question, "Will he be good for
the Jews? He will be good for
BERG, a 34-year-old Houston
lawyer, wno is a member ot the
United Jewish Appeal's National
' Young Leadership Cabinet, said
he would like to go to sleep one
night without worrying about
Israel and believes that with
Carter, Israel will have a friend in
the White House.
During the convention, Berg
and Mrs. Harriet Zimmerman, of
Atlanta, who is director of the
"Jewish desk," met with Jewish
delegates who had been elected in
support of Sen. Henry M.
Jackson of Washington and
California Gov. Edmund Brown
to convince them to back Carter.
Berg noted that Carter ex-
pected Jews to back Jackson but
after Jackson dropped out he was
surprised and concerned that
Jews did not support him. Mrs.
Zimmerman, who was active in
Jewish affairs in Boston before
moving to Atlanta, was first
named to the Carter staff and
Berg joined it later in Atlanta.

Mondale's political mentor was
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (I)..
Minn.), whose Senate seat he
filled when Humphrey became
Vice President in the ad-
ministration of Lyndon B.
Johnson in 1964. He has con-

Jewry during his 12 years in tbe
Mondale was one of the 76
Senators who signed a letter to
President Ford on May 21, 1975,
urging the Administration to end
its pressure on Israel during the
period of reassessment of the
U.S. Middle East policy.
SIX MONTHS earlier, he was
among the 71 Senators who sent
another letter to Ford supporting
Israel and rejecting the PLO. In
1973, Mondale was a strong
backer of legislation that
provided Israel with $2.2 billion
in emergency assistance
following the Yom Kippur War.
Mondale supported the
amendment to the Foreign Trade
Act authored by Sen. Henry M.
Jackson (D., Wash.) that linked
U.S. trade benefits to the Soviet
Union with an easing of Soviet
emigration policies. Most
recently, Mondale opposed an
amendment to the Foreign Aid
Bill by Sen. James Abourezk (D.,
S.D.) that, in effect, would have
cut off U.S. aid for Israel.
Of the six senators Carter was
considering for the Vice
Presidential nomination,
Mondale was the only one to vote
against the retention of Air Force
Gen. George S. Brown as
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff after Brown reiterated his
allegation that U.S. Jews exert
undue influence over Congress.
Nations Act, Too
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israeli Premier Yitzhak
Rabin expressed pessimism that the United Nations would
take positive action to end international hijacking because of
parliamentary squabbling in the world body.
Instead, Rabin, who was interviewed on CBS-TV "Face
the Nation," called on the United States to form a pact with
other nations outside the UN to strengthen airline and
airport security and to cooperate against countries which
participate in hijackings or provide safe havens for hijackers.

"Everyone can draw their own
conclusions," Hennessy told
newsmen at the airport before
driving to the foreign Office to
report on his mission.
HENNESSY, who was pn
home leave, was dispatched to
Uganda to determine what
happened to Mrs. Bloch, who
holds dual British-Israeli
citizenship. She was not among
the hostages rescued by Israel
from Entebbe Airport July 3.
According to unconfirmed
reports, she was kidnapped by
Ugandan agents from the
Kampala hospital where she was
taken on becoming ill several
days before the rescue.
Press reports here said that
Ugandan President Idi Amin told
Hennessy that he had given
orders to return any hospitalized
hostages to the airport on July 3,
the day before expiration of the
hijackers' deadline.
ON THE same day, Amin flew
to Mauritius to attend a meeting
of the Organization for African
Unity (OAU), and he told
Hennessy, according to the press
reports, that he had no direct
knowledge that his orders were
carried out.

Shabbat Chazon
Rabbi. Temple Beth El
"How can I myself alone bear
your cumb ranee, and your
burden, and your strife? Get you,
from each of your tribes, wise
men, and understanding, and full
knowledge, and I will make them
heads over you" (1,12-13).
On this day, Shabbat Chazon,
we read the first chapters in
Deuteronomy. Coming just
before Tisha b'Av, this portion is
well suited to the prophetic
lesson for the Sabbath, the
Haftorah. the first chapter of
Isaiah. Like that chapter, it is
marked by the note of criticism,
complaint and fault-finding.
We must admit that Moses
was not so much scolding his
people as endeavoring to help
them help themselves.
He realized that even a God-
appointed leader like himself
needed human assistance as well
as divine help.
this attitude of Moses for our
own guidance? What is our
greatest present-day need? It is
more cooperation, more sharing
of tasks and burdens, more
participation in the work which
every well-organized, properly
functioning, well-ordered
community requires.
Scan the list of workers in any
community. Analyze the
directorates of the average
Jewish institutions. See how few
workers there are, how the same
names occur again and again in
the various boards!
Why should it be so? Can there
be, should there be, a monopoly
in benevolent work? Are they not
doing the work of the whole
community? Then why should
their burden and responsibility
fall on the shoulders of just a

cooperate with Moses? They were
to be "wise and understanding
men," and full of knowledge

the life that has ever made the
Jew distinctive.
Jews to assume their share of the
burdens and privileges of
Jewish communal life? Do not the
two factors go hand in hand? Is
not our leadership limited
because Jewish knowledge is at
so low an ebb? The average of
Jewish learning is far too low;
men of Hebrew letters are far too
That is why there is not
enough sense of responsibility,
not enough capacity for sacrifice,
not enough readiness to assume
public duty and communal tasks.
This is an age of specialization.
We are only too eager to leave
matters to the expert.
Perhaps that is why Jews are
willing to leave Jewish study to
the very old and very pious,
praying and meditation to the
rabbi, Jewish education to the
professional teacher, relief work
to the welfare worker, the effort
on behalf of Israel to a few
Zionist idealists.
But how shall we proceed to
remedy these defects? Moses
may have wished, "Would that
all the Lord's people were
prophets." But he began the

'Beyond the Jordan, in the land of Moab, took Moses upon him
to expound this law" (Deut. 1.5).
Devarim The first few verses introduce the entire book of
Deuteronomy, which contains Moses' address to the Israelites
in Transjordan after the defeat of the Amorites and Bashan. In
this speech Moses summarises the Torah as a whole. He
reviews the causes that had led him to appoint judges and
officials: "How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and
your bur den,and your strife? .And I charged your judges at
that time, saying: 'Hear the causes between your brethen, and
judge righteously between a man and his brother, and the
stranger that is with him. Ye shall not respect persons in
judgement: ye shall hear the small and the great alike' "
(Deuteronomy 1.12-17).
Moses goes on to review the incident of the scouts sent to
spy on Canaan, and the consequences of their pessimistic
report. He reminds the Israelites how they had skirted Edom,
Ammon, and Moab; and mentions the peoples who had for-
merly inhabited those regions. Finally, he recounts the story of
the conquest of Transjordan, and the partition of the area
between the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half of the tribe of
Question: What is meant by the
expression "Kayn Ayin Hots"?
Answer: This expression,
literally translated, means "with
no evil eye." It is used when
praising a person or a personal
situation Its intent is to offer the
praise and to prevent any envy
from the praiseworthy cir-
cumstance that would lead to
strife and bad feelings.
The most characteristic phrase
in this expression is "evil eye"
(ayin hora). This expression is
found in the Bible (Proverbs
28:22), where the scriptural text
states, "He that has an evil eye
hastens after riches and does not
know the want that shall come
upon him."
Here, obviously, the "evil eye"
stands for the feeling of envy.
The effects are characterized as
affecting the envious person
himself with unfortunate con-
In the Talmudic literature we
have references to the effect of
the evil eye" on the innocent
object of envy, Le., the person
who is envied. One such source
states that occupations which
give a picture of noteworthy
success do not give their prac-
titioners eventual blessing
because of the "evil eye" that
others will cast upon them or
their success (P'sachiin 50 b).
The mystics, indeed, find
esoteric meaning to this feeling of
envy which eventually shads
harm on innocent victims
because they are objects of envy.
The Talmud in one pises (Bracb-
oth 66b) even gives a strange
formula whereby one can ward off
the evil consequences of the "evil
Generally speaking, the fear of
the "evil eye" has restrained
many believing Jews from
bragging about their
achievements. Some Jews were in
the habit of wearing amulets to
ward off the effects of the "evil

Thousands of Canadians of all
faiths and from all walks of
life, as well as representatives
from numerous Olympic
teams, participated in a
solemn memorial service here
for the 11 members of the 1972
Israeli Olympic team who
were slain by terrorists in
Some 1800 persons filled the
sanctuary of the Shaare
Hashomayim Synagogue and
about 4,000 more persons
watched the ceremony from
elsewhere in the building on
closed-circuit television.
THE EVENT was covered by
more than 200 press and
television correspondents from
around the world. All five
French-language dailies that
serve Montreal displayed a
photograph of Mordechai Shalev,
Israel's Ambassador to Canada,
greeting the 52 Israeli athletes
participating in the Montreal
Olympics on their arrival here
Sunday and gave prominent
coverage in their editions today
of last night's memorial service.
More than 100 leading
Canadian officials, including
Prime Minister Pierre Elliott
Trudeau and six provincial
premiers, lent their names to the
memorial service project which
was co-sponsored by various
Jewish organizations throughout
the country after Israeli Olympic
officials failed in an effort to have
the International Olympic
Committee sponsor a memorial
observance as part of the
program for the Montreal
TRUDEAU, who was ac-
companied to the ceremony by
six other federal Cabinet

delivered in French and English.

close to the Premier reported
later that they saw tears in his
In a spontaneous display of
emotion at the conclusion of the
memorial service, one of the
widows of the slain Israeli
athletes presented Trudeau with
an Israeli medal.
Others present at the service
were Willy Duame, vice president
of the International Olympic
Committee, Montreal Mayor
Jean Drapeau, provincial and
city officials and other leading
citizens from various parts of
Canada and the widows of three
of the Munich victims Yossef
Romano, weight lifter; Kehat
j Shorr, the rifle coach; and Andrei
Spitrer a fencer and the 52
members of the 1976 Israeli
Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut,
chairman of the memorial ser-
vice, told the audience: "The
spirit of Munich still roams the
world. The time is past for
mouthing pious words. Unless
there is an answer that comes
from the nations of the world, the
clouds will form once again and
beyond Entebbe there will be
other Munichs."
Ephraim Katzir stated in a
message, read to the audience by
Shalev, that "As the Montreal
Olympics approach, reem-
phasizing for all of us the in-
ternational fraternity of sport,
the memory of the massacre in
Munich haunts us even more
The Israel Olympic Com-
mittee, represented here by its
secretary, Chaim Glovinsky,
issued a six-page pamphlet in
four languages to commemorate
the Munich 11.
It stated, in part: "As a tree in
a storm, so shall the Jews survive
yet this onslaught But there is
no forgiveness. The pain and
anguish we feel at the loss of our
fellow sportsmen will give us the
power to press forward ever
higher, ever faster, as they would
have wished us to do."
Three hours before the
memorial service, the Israeli flag
went up over the Olympic
tinued progress toward peace,"
the platform said. "Such
problems cannot be solved,
however, by recognition of
terrorist groups which refuse to
acknowledge their adversary's
right to exist, or groups which
have no legitimate claim to
represent the people for whom
they purport to be speaking."
This is an obvious reference to
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. There is no
mention of the occupied
territories in the p'.-tform.
However, Carter is on record as
saying that a Mideast peace
requires Israeli withdrawals,
although he would not pressure
Israel to give up Jerusalem or
positions on the Golan Heights.
The platform also stressed that
"We steadfastly oppose any
move to isolate Israel in the
international arena or suspend it
from the United Nations or its
constituent bodies.
IN A section on the UN, the
Democrats call for the U.S. to
continue playing a strong role in
the UN while making efforts to
reform and reconstruct it. "The
heat of debate at the General
Assembly should not obscure the
value of our supporting United
Nations involvement in keeping
the peace and in the increasingly
complex technical and social
problems. ."the platform said.
"But we must let the world
know that anti- American
polemics is no substitute for
sound policy and that the United
Nations is weakened by harsh
rhetoric from other countries or
by blasphemous resolutions such
as the one equating Zionism and
racism." The Mideast section of
the platform abo stated that "we

support initiation of government
enforcement action to insure that
stated U.S. policy in opposition
to boycotts against friendly
countries is fully and
vigorously implemented."
The only reference to the
Soviet Union in the platform was
by implication in the section on
U.S.-Soviet relations which said
that "We should continually
remind the Soviet Union, by
word and conduct, of its com-
mitments in Helsinki to the free
flow of people and ideas and of
how offensive we and other free
peoples find its violations of the
Universal Declaration of Human
BASICALLY the same
reference was made July 14 by
former Ambassador Patricia
Harris, who introduced that
section to the convention.
Sen. Frank Church of Idaho,
who was a Presidential con-
tender, also referred to the Soviet
Jewry issue by implication
although somewhat more directly
than the platform. Church, in
introducing the foreign policy
section, said that "we should
restore the American tradition of
concern for human rights in-
cluding the right to emigrate."
The reticence to mention the
Soviet Jewry issue directly may
be due to Carter's position in
support of quiet diplomacy to
achieve immigration rather than
public pressure. Church, in his
speech, also rejected suggestions
that food be used as a weapon
against the Arabs.
"I'm for selling the Arabs all
the food they can buy; I am just
against selling them so many
weapons," he said to loud ap-
plause. However, Carter, in a
television interview earlier this
week said that if the U.S. was
again faced with an oil embargo,
he would immediately impose a
counter-embargo covering food,
weapons and oil-drilling
Mexico Slams
Israel This Time
For Uganda Raid
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) The Mexican govern-
ment, which several months ago promised American Jewish
leaders that it will not participate in any further anti-Israeli
campaigns at the UN after its support of the resolution
equating Zionism with racism, has criticized the Israeli rescue
operation in Uganda.
In a letter to the president of the Security Council, the
Mexican government, without mentioning Israel by name but
obviously referring to Israel, stated:
"MEXICO, faithful to its principles, cannot fail likewise to
express its firm rejection of the use of armed force by any state
as a means of trying to solve conflicts, because such acts area
flagrant violation both of the Charter of the United Nations and
of universally accepted principles of international law, and
create precedents of incalculable danger for all civilired
"The lack of the political will to implement the bask
precepts of the United Nations Charter and the relevant
resolutions adopted by the United Nations to give effect to
those precepts in specific cases has produced, in the opinion of
the Mexican government, a dangerous impasse in the situation
:in the Middle East which naturally affects all international
| activity."
The letter also condemned all acts of terrorism, including
the hijacking of the Air France jetliner to Uganda "by an
extremist Palestinian irroup."

Many Israelis were uneasy and
some angered over what amounts
to the ouster of the 42-member
Taiwan team from the Olympic
Games that started in Montreal
July 17.
These feelings stemmed from
sympathy for a country being
ostracized from an international
event for purely political reasons
a humiliation suffered by
Israel on more than one occasion
in the past.
BUT THE main concern was
that the ban on Taiwan would set
a precedent for a similar ban on
the Israeli team in the 1980
Olympics which will be held in
The Israeli government has
made no official expression of
displeasure over the treatment of
the Taiwanese and is not ex-
pected to.
To become officially embroiled
in the matter would only offend
Canada, a friendlv nation with
which Israel maintains dip-
lomatic and trade relations.
ISRAEL HAS no diplomatic
relations with Taiwan. But if
Canada can block the team from
Taiwan, with which it severed
relations in 1970 when it
recognized the People's Republic
of China, the Soviet Union, it
was felt here, could easily do the
same against Israel with which it
broke relations in 1967.

ADL Asks Action Against
PLO Delegates' Violations
NEW YORK The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has called upon the
Department of Justice to take
action against two members of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization delegation for
violating the restricted con-
ditions under which they are
permitted to stay in the U.S.
The League urged that they be
deported or, if they are out of the
country before proceedings can
be initiated, that they be barred
from reentry.
THE TWO PLO delegates -
Shafik Al-Hout and Abdul Jawad
Saleh hold visas which
prohibit them from travelling
outside a radius of 25 miles from
Columbus Circle, New York City,
unless they have special per-
mission from the U.S. Depart-
ment of State. Their status is
that of "non-immigrants in
transit to the United Nations."
In letters to Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and Attorney
General Edward H. Levi. Arnold
Forster, ADL's general counsel
and associate director, charged
that Al-Hout and Saleh had
received State Department
permission to travel beyond the
25-mile limit provided that they
did not engage in public political
activity and that both had
violated the stipulation.
The ADL official said that Al-
Hout, who had obtained per-
mission last month to attend a
luncheon meeting of U.S.
Senators in Washington, D.C.,
appeared on a television in-
terview program while in the
SALEH, he said, had received
permission to travel around the
country to visit relatives in
November, 1975, and had used
the opportunity to make political
Pointing out that the
Immigration and Naturalization
Act mandates expulsion of non-
immigrants who fail to comply
with the conditions of their
status, Forster said the PLO
delegates were guilty of "willful
violation of the terms of their
trips outside New York."
Furthermore, he declared, "It
is evident that the PLO delegates
will continue to take advantage
of United States government
allowances and are prepared to
indulge in forbidden public
political activity at any time that
a pretext can be used to obtain
State Department approval to
leave the area of New York Citv.
THE STATE Department
issued restricted visas to the
PLO delegates in November,
1974, after ADL filed suit in
federal court to bar the delegates
from entering the U.S. or to
restrict their travel.
The League suit cited the
PLO's record of murder and
violence against Americans and
American property here and
abroad, the hijacking of
American planes, instances of
planting, or attempting to plant,
explosive devices in the U.S.

Skyrocketing Utility
Bills Next Winter
can look forward to skyrocketing
utility bills next winter. The
Federal Power Commission
(FPC) has secretly decided to
allow the gas companies to triple
the price of their product.
The commission fixes the rates
that consumers pay for natural
gas. The price at the wellhead is
now about 58 cents per thousand
cubic feet. The FPC intends to
raise this to about $1.60 per
thousand cubic feet. Translated,
this means the nation's utility
bill will shoot up an estimated
$23 billion next year.

The commissioners hadn't
planned to announce the price
rise until Congress closes down
for the political conventions. But
this is a $23 billion cat that
should be let out of the bag.
Key congressmen, meanwhile,
are furious with the gas industry
for going behind their backs to
the FPC. At least two powerful
congressmen, John Moss of
California and John Dingell of
Michigan, will try to jtop the
Spokesmen for the gas com-

necessary to finance the
development of more gas. They
also contended that natural gas

same companies were producing
plenty of natural gas for about 20
cents per thousand cubic feet.
Now they're getting triple that
price, or about 58 cents. Yet they
claim they need to triple it again
to more than $1.50.
And the Federal Power

to protect the public, is going
along with them.

On the Fourth of July, the

the nominating convention in
New York last week.
BUT ALLON urged pressure
from American Jews to make
sure the promise is fulfilled.
"Why is it that the American
Ambassador can present his
credentials in Jerusalem, but he
cannot live here? Why can he
meet here but be deprived of the
pleasure of living in Jerusalem?"
Allon asked.
The issue was raised during a
special Bicentennial session of

Menachem Beigin, who observed
that Jerusalem is the only capital

The hostages included the flight crew of the seized J

Security Council Debate
Hijacking Act of Air Piracy'
The United Kingdom and
Sweden strongly condemned the
hijacking on June 27 of an
AirFrance air bus and the
subsequent holding of hostages
at Entebbe Airport. They called
on the UN to adopt measures
against terrorism and hijacking.
Addressing the Security
Council, which resumed debate
July 12 on the Israeli rescue
operation in Uganda,
Ambassador Ivor Richard of
Britain said his government
vigorously condemns "this act of
air piracy."
He called on the international
community to make clear its
"condemnation and abhorrence
of such evil actions." He said

rescue operation that saved the
lives of so many innocent

the Air France plane "criminal,|;
and pointing out that the
Ugandan government did not
fulfill its duty toward the
hostages, Swedish Ambassador
Olof Rydbeck said, nonetheless,
that the rescue raid violated the
sovereignty of Uganda.
Meanwhile, the United States
and Britain jointly submitted a
draft resolution to the Council,
condemning "hijacking and all
other acts which threaten the
lives of passengers and crew and
the safety of international civil
aviation," and calling upon all
states "to take every necessary
measures to prevent and punish
all such terrorist acts."
The draft also called for real-
firmation of "the need to respect
the sovereignty and territorial
integrity of all states." The
resolution would have had the
Council deplore all loss of human
life that resulted from the
hijacking of the French aircraft.
pointed out that the resolution as
it stood could only get, at most
seven votes, counting on Japan
and Panama to support it. This
would be short of the nine af-
firmative votes needed for a
resolution to be adopted.
Sources here said that the
debate was likely to end in a
stalemate since a counter-
proposal of the African group,
calling on the Council to condemn
Israel, was also short of the nine
required votes and is certain to be
vetoed by the U.S.

that another woman was in one of her classes, the memory

It became gratifying, she declared, when she returned to

their way to convince you not to let that happen." She also
reported it was gratifying to have a young father tell her he
was "particularly glad that his young daughters" had the
[chance to see her leading services.
SHE ADDED that it was "exciting and rewarding to be in-
volved in the rabbinate" and especially exciting to be a part of the
growing number of women in the rabbinate." She asserted that "as

pEOPLE SHOULD be extra careful in
election years. They are notoriously high
temper years. Even way back when people were
more polite it was so. George Washington was
glad not to run for a third term He said when
the time came to make his decision that he
would rather be on his farm than emperior of the
When Dr. Slawson retired in 1967 from
his position as executive vice president of the
AJCommittee after 34 years of service
he was accorded more than the usual honors
bestowed upon a retired distinguished ofi-
ficial of high position. The event was marked
by a very impressive AJCommittee dinner, at
the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York, at
which laudatory speeches were given in an
inspiring atmosphere.
BUT WHAT put this event on a higher
plane than usual was the announcement that
the AJCommittee had decided to establish a
Slawson Fund to be spent by Dr. Slawson,
at his own decision, for any of the cultural
purposes in which he is interested. This was
a rare expression of appreciation of the ex-
cellent direction given by Dr. Slawson to the
work of the AJCommittee during the years
of his service. More than $270,000 was con-
tributed to this fund by individual AJCom-
mittee members.
Now, about nine years later, the AJCom-
mittee has again deemed it important to honor
him this time in a special way, by present-
ing him with the American Liberties Medal-
lion, the highest AJCommittee award given to
personalities who make their mark in Amer-
ican history.
THE PREVIOUS recipients of the Medal-
lion include President Lyndon B. Johnson,
Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren,
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr., Herbert H.
Lehman. Adlai Stevenson, Judge Joseph M.
I'roskauer, Jacob Blaustein, W. Averell Har-
riman, Dean Kusk, Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr and
other distinguished statesmen and humanitar-
The honoring now of Dr. Slawson was given
even greater emphasis by the fact that the
principal speaker at the festive affair which
took pla<":' in Washington, D.C., at the AJCom-
mittee 70th anniversary dinner was the
President of the United States, Gerald Ford;
also that the presentation of the Medallion
to Dr. Slawson was made by Morris B. Abram,
a former AJCommittee president, who was a
leading member of the United States Dele-
gation to the United Nations and later served
as president of Brandeis University.
ABRAM CALLED Dr. Slawson "the foun-
der of the modern American Jewish Com-
mittee," as distinct from the AJCommittee of
earlier years which was composed of a small
group of Jewish notables. He told the dis-
tinguished audience that he considers Dr.
Slawson not only his friend but also his mentor
for the 20 years he has known him.
Jovial (At Least) interview
Su# With humoRist Zeao mostel
VKKO MOSTEL, currently appearing as Tevye
at the Shubert Theater in Century City,
jovially was conducting a press interview ses-
sion at the swank Jade West across the square,
punctuating his outspoken, often irreverent
remarks with a couple of chopsticks, when a
wise-guy asked him how he could explain the
immense popularity of "Fiddler on the Roof"
in a world where the Jews constitute only a
tiny minority. He quickly supplied his straight-
faced answer, "Because you Christians have
a lot of guilt!"
The bulky full-bearded performer, who
came to the restaurant in the poverty-stricken
attire of a Tevye, thereby markedly contrast-
ing with the elegant surroundings, is rendering
the ultimate characterization of the Eastern Eu-
ropean milkman from the pen of Sholom Alei-
chem, a role originally created on the Yiddish
stage by the late Maurice Schwartz and ex-
panded by Zero in the Broadway musical 12
years ago, though he portrays the character
here now for the first and last time.
I ASKED Mostel about his role in Martin
Ritt's forthcoming movie, "The Front," in
which he stars opposite Woody Allen. I knew
well what the picture is all about but wanted
the subject matter to be discussed. "It is
about a comedian blacklisted during the Mc-
Carthy period," was his blunt reply. In fact,
it is also a part ot Zero Mostel's own past. It
so happened that he was appearing on the
stage in Los Angeles in "Lunatics and Lov-
ers," when the committee caught up with him
and he was put on the list and out of com-
mission for a number of years.
Mostel started his career as a nightclub
mtertainer, then branched out into the mu-
sical stage with Duke Ellington's "Beggar's
Holiday." "Keep 'Em Laughin" and Billy Rose's
"Concert Varieties." He became a dramatic
actor with "Flight Over Europe," Moliere's
'The Imaginary Invalid" and Bertold Brecht's
"Good Woman of Szetuan."
HE PLAYED the controversial role of Leo-
pold Bloom in James Joyce's "Ulysses in
Nighttown," won a Tony Award for his por-
trayal in Ionesco's "Rhinoceros," and went
back to musicals with "A Funny Thing Hap-
pened on the Way to the Forum."
nazi-hunteR naRRates Anguishing expeRience
SIMON WIESENTHAL. With a Symposium. "The
Sunflower." New York: Shocken, S7S0, 216 pp.

ls 0U< of the room.
THE AUTHOR has been wracked with this moral
emma for years. He has asked himself whether
action was right; whether it was ethical or moral
secoi haVe 8ramed a dyinB man ebsolution. The
hal of the book deals with responses to
this question.
Wiesenthal has polled 32 eminent Jewish and
non Jewish humanists, theologians, attorneys, writ-
ers, editors and others from Europe, Great Britain
and the United State*. Responses vary, with some vehemently agreeing with Wiesenthal's action
and others, who would have forgiven the Nazi, claim-
ing this would have been the ultimate example of
Jewish humanity.
Many Christians responded in the latter vein,
justifying forgiveness as Jesus' teaching.
WHILE EACH response is indeed individual, a
number of the men and women polled suggest that
Wiesenthal had no right to pass judgment on the
Nazi either way. Only victims can forgive an op-
pressor, and the victims were dead.
One unusual essay is Cynthia Ozick's brilliant
plan. She explains her feelings sans philosophical
double-talk and without mincing words. She speaks
clearly, convincingly and firmly. In no uncertain
t.*rms she would have "let the Nazi go to hell."
This is a thought-provoking psychological and
philosophical book. In the end, the reader must
decide what he or she would have done.
THIS MONTH signals a new edition of Bernard
Malamud's "The Fixer" by Pocket Books ($2.25,
306 pp.). It is printed from new plates in easy-1a
read type. This National Book Award and Pulitzer
Prize-winner is the famous and true story of the
Bailis case.
In the first decade of the twentieth century a
young Russian Jew is accused of the ritual murder
of a Christian child. If you have never read "The
Fixer," this is required summer reading.
