nan that the 16-year-
sh state needed the
assistance of UJA and their
affiliate organizations to join in a
partnership leading to develop-
ment. "Today there are
examples all over the country to
evidence the accomplishment of
this partnership. It is, however,
only the beginning."
Shulman stated that it was his
"very deep concern for the
welfare of the State of Israel"
that inspired him to take on the
leadership of the 1977 campaign.
"It is my very sincere con-
viction," he added, "that the
survival and the sustenance of
the State of Israel is not ex-
clusively for the benefit of the
people living in Israel. It is an
absolute necessity for Jewish
survival throughout the world
and we have to accept that as a
reality ..."

Egypt Dismantles Last Of
Disputed Missile Sites
TEL AVIV (JTA) Egypt has dismantled the third
and last of the missile sites it erected on the East Bank of the
Suez Canal, apparently satisfying Israel's demand for their
removal on grounds that the sites were a violation of the 1975
Sinai interim agreement.
The Egyptians removed the first two sites last month
following an Israeli complaint lodged with Gen. Ensio
Siilasvuo, commander of the United Nations Emergency Force
(UNEF) in Sinai. The third site remained a point of contention
but was taken down after discussions between Siilasvuo and
Egyptian military authorities.
A dispute persists, however, over Israel's charges that the
Egyptians have more battalions in the limited forces zone than
authorized under the interim accord.

jeneral Assembly is a
meeting which brings
together Federation leaders from
throughout the country. One of
its major tasks is to help the
Federations shape a more
creative and responsive com-
munity, and underscore the
growing sense of unity of the
Jewish people.
Some of the areas to be
discussed are: Federation -
Synagogue Relations; Soviet
Jews; Israel-Diaspora Relations;
Jewish Education and Culture -
Comprehensive local and
national planning; and the
Jewish Role in Helping to Shape
American Public Policy.
On April 12, 1976, Gen. George S. Brown, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was
interviewed by political cartoonist-writer Raanan R. Lurie. In the interview for King
Features Syndicate, Gen. Brown categorized Israel as a military "burden" to the United
States and also called Great Britain, longtime American ally, "pathetic."
Gen. Brown's statements have since elicited a storm of international and national
protest reminiscent of his address at Duke University in 1974, when the General alleged
that the American news media and American banks are largely under Jewish control.
At the time. Brown also declared that American Jews exercise undue influence on the
Congress of the United States in behalf of Israel.
President Ford refused to dismiss Gen. Brown for his insulting remarks in 1974. Last
week, the President again refused to do more than tap Gen. Brown on the wrist for what
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld later characterized as the Generals "inelegant

Jewish Telegraphic Agency ob-
tained the transcript of Gen.
George S. Brown's interview
with Raanan Lurie. As released
by King Features Syndicate,
Brown's remarks are as follows:
Lurie: Speaking about the
Middle East, from a pure
military point of view, would you
say that from the American
strategic-global strategic in-
terests, militarily is Israel and
its forces more a burden or more
a blessing from a pure military
point of view to the United
Brown: Well, I think it's just
got to be considered a burden. I
had this same conversation with
(Sen. Jacob) Javits right after I
got in trouble down at Duke. We
had breakfast and we were
talking, and he said to me,
"Can't you see the great
strategic value of Israel to the
United States?" And I said,
"Frankly, no," which wasn t
what I was talking about at
Duke at all. But my concern
there is that they're a burden.
Now if the trends were reversed,
then I could see in the long term
where it might be a tremendous
asset, where they would gain
power and could bring about
stability in the area.
LurU: If Israel would win. for
Brown: But you see, the
problem today is today there's
stability because Israel is strong.
She could whip Syria and Egypt
handily, and there's nobody else
that could check them in that
area, unless the Russians took a
direct hand. By that I mean send
forces in addition to equipment
and advisors. And that s not
likely. It's just not worth the
game at this point. But with all
the money, the wealth that
the Arabs have through Saudi
Arabia with the Trucial
States primarily, and Libya
secondly, to buy weapons, to
train people and they're
breeding at a hell of a high rate
the birth rate is ... the popu-
lation growth is far greater than
in Israel. And the long term
outlook is that the Arab states
are going to overcome the
deficiency that they've had,
which is leadership and tech-
nology and educated people. And
I just don't see any ... it'
going to take a complete change
in outlook on Israel's part. Up to
this point at least she's main-
tained her position, and I must
say, if I were in her shoes, I
don't know, I'd be in a terrible
dilemma because she's
surrounded by people who'd just
as soon see her pushed into the
Lurie: You don't think they
really want to have a legitimate,
down to earth peace the
Arabs, I mean?
Brown: Oh, I don't... I think
they do in the short term. But I
don't in 15-20 years. Because
they have no other option. I
would think that if, for instance,
if Saudi Arabia, which is the key
to the thing because she has the
wealth, could just go on a
nation-building program .
that would keep it totally oc-
cupied for a long time, and then
to help Egypt to get on her feet
economically and what not, they
couldn't worry about Israel. But
they've got a thing that they are
very, very sincere about these
Holy Lands. And some accom-
modation has got to be found
where Jerusalem can be shared
by the religions that, you know
to whom the area is naningful.
But I can't see Israel as an asset
to the United States today.
LURIE: And this theory that
paralleling it, for instance, to
France. Once France detached
herself from Israel, the fact is
that France lost any leverage
whatsoever she had with the
Arabs because she put herself
out of the game. Right now, the

Ford Meets With Top Leaders
President Ford sought
explain to a group of
wr 150 Jewish com-
lunity leaders why his
ninistration sells arms
Saudi Arabia, what it
Itends to do to increase
rate of Jewish emi-
ation from the Soviet
hion and how it is com-
ptting the Arab boycott.

Jewry, Ford acknowledged that
the rate of Jewish emigration
from the Soviet Union has
declined from 35,000 to 12.000 a
year and intimated that this was
the result of a break-down in
communications between
Washington and Moscow
because of the restrictions
imposed by the JacksonVanik
and Stevenson amendments to
the Trade Reform Act.
"We must do better in terms
of Soviet Jewish emigration,"
Ford stated, according to the

strengthen Israel not only with
money and arms but also with
people who are fully committed
to the preservation of Israel and
who wul do so through their im-
migration to Israel."
Questioned about a possible
future Arab oil boycott. Ford
declared, "If there is a boycott I
will not tolerate it." But, he
added, according to JTA's in-
formant, there will not be
another Arab oil embargo
because "there will not be
another war in the Middle East.'*
On the subject of the Arab
boycott of American firms doing
business with Israel, Ford
referred to his order last week to
the Commerce Department to
release, in the future, the names
of U.S. companies that comply
with Arab boycott demands.
HE SAID any violation of his
order would result in action and
claimed that his Administration
is "the only one to have taken
positive action in the area of the
boycott." Asked why he had not
made his order retroactive. Ford
replied that he would not change

On the subject of peace
negotiations. Ford declared that
"The PLO will not be a par-
ticipant in any future conference
on peace in the Middle East."
He said also there was an
international movement toward
action against terrorism and that
the U.S. was playing a role in
that area.
FORD TOLD his audience,
which included Yeshiva heads,
that he was dedicated to aiding
non-public schools and to their
perpetuation and expansion
because competition with public
schools was healthy.
He said he would do his best,
within Constitutional limits, to
seek legislation in such areas as
tax assistance and tax credits for
non-public schools and non-
public school parents.

The Latest Insult
The latest performance by Chief of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff Gen. George Brown once again raises the question of
just who is running the military the military men
themselves or America's civilian authorities.
The business of generals and such ought to be to keep the
nation safe and secure by the exercise of their professional
capabilities on the silent if not secret level to which their
work is natural heir.
It ought not to be to make diplomatic or foreign policy
pronouncements or any other kind of political statements
for interview, publication or otherwise.
Gen. Brown has now thrice insulted American Jews and
Israel since his first disastrous pronouncement back in 1974
about alleged Jewish control of the American banking and
press establishments.
In addition, this time the General has taken a swipe at
ureat Britain, this nation's most distinguished ally since
the American Revolution "unpleasantness."
President Ford's failure once again to deal with Gen.
Brown as an habitual foot-in-mouth jingo militarist who
ought to be dealt with raises the nasty thought in mind that
the President was quick to bounce Agriculture Secretary
Karl Butz for a racial slur against American Blacks but
consistently defends both patent anti-Semitism and insults
to Israel in Gen. Brown.
Ultimately, as we have already said, the real issue is the
iolation of the principle of constitutional separation of
military and civil power, with the latter assigned to
ultimate control over the former.
How can it be that President Ford consistently refuses to
act against Gen. Brown's violations of the principle?
Carter Voices Anger
At Soviet Beatings
Jimmy Carter expressed outrage
Oct. 20 at the beatings of 12
Jewish activists by Soviet police
agents after a sit-in Oct. 18 at an
administrative building of the
Supreme Soviet in Moscow to
protest t he denial of exit visas.
The Democratic Presidential
candidate expressed himself on
this issue after being informed
about the heatings by Eugene
Gold, chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry. In
his response to Gold, Carter
"I FULLY share your sense of
outrage and I will continue to
speak out against such actions.
Our relations with the Soviet
Union cannot be conducted
without taking into account the
degree to which they comply with
the Helsinki accords."
As President, he continued, he
would ask the Soviet Union
publicly to comply with the
human rights provisions of the
Helsinki accord. "I would put the
matter of freedom and free emi-
gration among the top issues that
would be discussed with the
Soviet Union."
In a related move. Carter sent
a cable to the American Embassy
in Moscow for delivery to
Vladimir Slepak. the veteran
"refusnik" who led the delegation
of Jews at the sit-in and was one
of those beaten by the Soviet in
Moscow to protest the denial of
exit visas.
IN HIS telegram to Slepak.
Carter stated: "I have read with
great concern about the treat-
ment that you and some of your
colleagues suffered recently. As
you know. I have spoken out on
this matter as Governor and
during this campaign and have
referred to your case by name. I
want you to know of my deep
personal interest in the treatment
that you and your colleagues

Tzur sat Aug. 24 among friends
in Jerusalem and said with a light
heart, "Shalom, it was nice
working with you." But one of
his friends, Golda Meir, sitting
right next to him at the party
that was to officially end his 16
years as chairman of the Jewish
National Fund, warned him: "If
you live in the illusion that you
are going on vacation, let me tell
you of the experience of someone
older than you."
For 90 minutes, Tzur, who
seems too far away from retire-
ment age, sat and heard the
stories of the generation which, in
his words, "is slowly fading."
And at the end of the hour and a
half, he committed himself to tell
the story of this generation to the
younger generation.
"NOT THE facts; every day a
new book is published with new
facts. But rather the spirit
I want to tell about the spirit of
the generation." Tzur promised
to tell the story of Zionism as a
way of life, as a revolution
"which I sense even today, even
as I see the stagnation in many of
the branches of the Zionist

revival of the latent vitality in

A momentous autobiography that reveals the soldier
who never forgot his roots as tiller of the soil, the
loner and the political maverick who rose to the
highest echelons of government. This is the story not

Transcript Of Brown's Interview
Continued from Page 1
the only force in the world that
has any leverage whatsoever on
the Israelis. Therefore they have
tremendous clout with the
BROWN: That's exactly
right. We've got a little with the
Saudis, I think, if we use it
wisely, because of the Saudis'
concern for Communism.
LURIE: Right.
BROWN: You know, I think
genuinely the Saudis are ... As
I said, I think the Saudis are
genuinely concerned about the
Soviets and Communists.
They're concerned about Israel
primarily because of the Holy
Lands. They want entree to
Jerusalem. I think that they
genuinely have a concern for the
PLO and all those other general
problems, but they're not real
heartburn issues with them. At
least that's what I detect from
my limited conversation with
LURIE: Following your way
of thinking, with which I happen
to agree very much about the
Saudis computing the Com-
munist factor, and so on, I
wonder if the Saudis are really
that fanatically in love with the
PLO due to the fact that the
PLO, basically, once they estab-
lish themselves, they will have
another Albania in the Middle
BROWN: Exactly.
LURIE: That's for sure.
Therefore, maybe it's just some
kind of lip service, because
basically I don't think they are
so happy to have this kind of
threat because .
BROWN: Not only that.
Raanan, they might, you know,
if they get some mod and estab-
lish a Palestinian state, it's not
going to be a viable thing.
Somebody's going to have to
support them. They're going to
look to the Arabs to support
them ...
LURIE: Of course.
BROWN: And the fellow with
the money is Saudi Arabia.
LURIE: The rich uncle.
BROWN: That's right. Now,
the other concern over there
really is Iran, and the puzzling
question of why she is building
such a tremendous military
force. She couldn't with her
population do anything that
would provide protection from
the Soviet Union, if there is a
real threat there. She's got
adequate power now to handle
Afghanistan and Pakistan, so,
you know, if they were a threat
you could discount that .
she's a little better than a match
for Iraq now. And my gosh, the
programs the Shah has coming.
It just makes you wonder about
whether he doesn't some day
have visions of the Persian
LURIE: Certainly
BROWN: They don't call that
the Persian Gulf for nothing.
But of course our concern for the
Middle East is that tremendous
flow of oil. Our dependence on,
what, 17 or 18 percent now, I
guess, of our national con-
sumption. And all of Europe,
Japan. It's just got to continue
to flow, or, the world is going to
change. It's not going to be the
world we know today.
LURIE: What about Lebanon
right now, changing into what
we can call by pragmatic terms a
new, very extreme left regime in
a very vital spot?
BROWN: Wei, it could, but
I'm not prepared to be quite that
optimistic ... if this cease-fire
The Syrians have been very con-
strained in their military effort
and have provided the
stabilizing balance there. If we
get a regime, if something comes
out of this election that is not as
radical as you suspect it might
be, it will have Syrian support.
And maybe, just maybe, they
could carry it off. If it comes out
too radical, I think we're going
to have continued trouble over
there within Lebanon.
It's been amazing to me that
they've been able to fight this
long, on the scale that they have,
and with the tremendous
destruction and disruption of the
country, and have the rest of the
Middle East kind of keep hands
off. The Syrians have sort of
boxed it in order to maintain
some degree of control without
actually getting in and taking
the place over. And the Israelis
have been very restrained. Both
have made statements that the
other understands .

restrained also because of
American pressure?
BROWN: As far as I know, it
hasn't been necessary to apply
any. I think they're restrained
primarily because this isn't the
provocation over which they are
prepared to go to war. The
lesson of the last war to them
was that the casualties were a
heck of a lot heavier than they're
prepared to take. A few years
ago, in some of the earner wars,
they were quickly decisive. The
casualties were reasonable,
although they don't want to take
This last time they took very
heavy casualties the first four or
five days. And I don't think that
small country wants to see that
again or can afford to see it.
Politically they can't afford to.
They've got tremendous internal
problems, as you know better
than I. You've been over there.
They're over-extended because of
the tremendous military burden
they have, and I guess if we were
in their straits, we would be, too.

Question: Why does the
United States support Israel's
right to exist?
Answer: America's long
history of support for Israel is a
unique combination of moral
commitment and self-interest.
The *t;S. has supported the
estsbUsbJnent of a Jewish fcpnie-
tand m Palestine since theYsoee
of the First World War and, in
1947, helped to create the State
of Israel as a haven for Jews who
survived the Holocaust. la 1949
the U.S. endorsed the ~>-
State's admission to the Ui
Nations. Every American
ident siace Harry Trumai
acknowledged America's' com-
mitment to Israel's survival and
every Congress has given over-
whelming bipartisan support to
that commitment.
In addition, Israel is the most
dependable ally we have in the
Eastern Mediterranean a
region which the Russians have
coveted since the days of the
czars. It is the only true
democracy in the area, and its
strong durable ties to the U.S.
are sustained by a shared
religious tradition and a shared
devotion to individual liberty
and Western parliamentary
In its turbulent 28-year
history, Israel has repeatedly
justified America's confidence in
its ability and determination to
defend itself against attack by
vastly superior numbers without
asking for or requiring the
help of Americas troops.

Question: Wouldn't the rick
Arab states be a better ally thorn
Israel for the U.S.?
Answer: Though Americans
tend to think of "the Arabs" as
a united, monolithic bloc, the
fact is that there are 20 separate
Arab states with significant
tribal, ethnic, religious and
political differences dividing

like Iraq, are militant
regimes; others,
Marxist regimes; others, like
Saudi Arabia, are conservative
monarchies. Many, perhaps
most, of the present-day rulers
have come to power through
military or political coups or
assassinations, and could tnpphi
from power in the same way. In
fact, without Israel on the scene,
the risk of radical takeovers
I would be even greater.
In 1970, for instance, during
the civil war in Jordan, a pre-
cautionary mobilization of
Israel's army and air force, co-
ordinated with and requested by
the U.S., caused Syria to with-
draw the tanks it had sent across
the border to aid the Palestinian
guerrillas in their effort to topple
King Hussein. More recently,
Israel's presence in the area has
undoubtedly helped deter Syria
from intervening on the side of
the Palestinians in the Moslem-
Christian fighting in Lebanon.
Without a strong Israel, the
Middle East could very quickly
become a Soviet outpost.

Inside Judaica
In the last few years we have
witnessed the appearance of a
plethora of movements, from the
radical left to hashish smoking
hippies, from Jesus freaks to
followers of the guru, from Dr.
Moon to worshippers of the
occult. But what is of major
concern to me is the fact that all
these movements seem to attract
a disproportionate number of
Jews. Indeed, why are Jews so
vulnerable why are young
Jews the most prone to joining
any movement that comes
Today we witness a new
development in the evolution of
cults Transcendental
Meditation. Unlike other move-
ments, whose thrust is aimed
primarily at the young, and
which offer new modes of
religious worship, T.M. claims to
be totally secular in nature and
without any religious overtones.
It is a "religion-less, drug-less
high" guaranteed to turn on the
entire family.
According to the proponents
of T.M., "It matters little
whether you are Jewish,
Christian, Moslem, Buddhist, or
atheist. For $125 we have a
mantra for you." Thus T.M.
neutralizes all pangs of con-
science and reassures its ad-
herents that there is nothing to
fear. After all, we are told, T.M.
does not demand that you
abandon your faith.
But let the facts speak for
themselves. Where does T.M.
really stand on religion?
Despite its claims to
secularism, T.M. is nothing less
than Hinduism in disguise. Its
rites and rituals are permeated
with Hindu words and symbols.
In front of an altar dominated by
the portrait of the Guru Dev, the
initiate makes an offering of
flowers, fruit, and a symbolic
white handkerchief. Candles are
lit, incense is burned, in-
cantations are chanted. Then,
shrouded in mystery, the secret
mantra is transmitted to the new
disciple the mantra through
which he believes he will be able
to rise above the natural laws
which govern other men. The
mantra is his shield, his
protection, the source of his
spiritual insights and strength.
But the gurus of T.M. are
quick to assure you that this is
not a religion, that there is no
conflict between the mantra and
the Tors h way of life.
However, what is most
astonishing is the propensity for
ao many Jews to adopt these
new trends. We are reaping the
bitter harvest of a generation
which has come of age in a spir-
itual wasteland. If this
generation would only possess
knowledge of Torah, they would
readily comprehend that
meditation itself is one of the
most sublime forms of religious
But meditation for a Jew was
never a form of self-indulgence,
nor was the subject of his
meditation a private, secret
possession. It was his duty to
share every word, every thought
with his friends, with his neigh-
bors, so that through his
meditation, the light of God
might illuminate the world.
Nor were our ancestors
unaware of the importance of
introspective meditation Prior
to invoking God in prayer, the
great sages of Israel would

prepare themselves for this
sacred moment by meditating,
and then, at the conclusion of
their service to God, they would
once again meditate, so that
their encounter with the
Almighty would achieve the
highest spiritual level.
Consider for a moment the
immensity of the tragedy ... A
nation that stood at Sinai and
spoke to God face to face, is
resigned today to sitting like
zombies meditating upon
mantras, while the words of the
Torah elude them.
It is not our intention to enter
into a detailed discussion on the
merits or demerits of T.M. But it
is our intention to warn our
Jewish brethren not to fall into
the trap of entering an alien cult,
a form of religious worship in the
guise of relaxation, mental
health, etc. There is only one
meaning that T.M. can have for
the Jew, and that is Torah and
of food permitted for con
sumption and their preparation.
These laws concern themselves
with what animals, birds and
fish may be eaten, the way in
which they must be prepared,
and the fact that meat must not
be consumed or cooked together
with milk or other dairy
Throughout the ages many
attempts have been made to
explain these laws. The Bible
itself does not explain them,
although they are closely as-
sociated with the concept of
"holiness." It has been variously
suggested that the underlying
motivation for the dietary laws
are hygienic and sanitary,
aesthetic and folkloric, or ethical
and psychological. The prophet
Ezekiel (33:25), for instance,
equates the eating of blood with
the sins of idolatry and murder.
According to one inter-
pretation of this verse, the laws
are ethical in intent since ab-
stention from the consumption
of blood tames man's instinct for
violence by instilling in him a
horror of bloodshed. The rabbis
of the Talmud generally
regarded these laws as aids to
moral conduct. A halachic
Midrash states: "Let not a man
say, I do not like the flesh of
swine'; on the contrary, he
should say, I like it but must
abstain, seeing that the Torah
has forbidden it.' "
The Encyclopaedia Judaica
states that according to some
mystics, the forbidden foods
defile and pollute man's soul and
blunt the intellectual powers.
Maimonides notes that these
laws "accustom us to restrain
both the growth of desire and
? ?Question Box? ?
Question: Why is the seventh
day of Succoth (Hoshanah
Rabbah) regarded as such an
important day?
Answer: The Talmud (Sukkah
36a) names this day the day of
Chibut Aravah. i.e. the day of
"beating the willow branch" or
simply the day of Aravah, i.e. the
day of the willow branch.
It has also been referred to in
the Midraahic literature as the
"Day of the Hoshanah," the
"Hoshanah" being another name
for the willow.
Our usual reference to this day
is the day Hoshanah Rabbah
because the willow assumes an
important signifcance on this
day. Le. "The great day for the
willow," or because many willows
or many prayers are said with the
willow on this day (Le. "many
Generally speaking, Succoth is
the time when the judgment is
handed down affecting the
amount of rainfall that will come
during the year. The last day of
judgment over this facet of
nature would thus be 'on
Hoshanah Rabbah and thus this
day assumes critical importance.
The mystical tradition of the
Kabbalah claims that the actual
final verdict of judgment reached
on Yom Kippur is sealed on this
Since the willows usually grow
near brooks, i.e. the kind of
willows we use during the festival
of Succoth, the willow becomes a
symbol of the adequate resource
of water.
Question: Why do some Jews
stay up the whole night of
Hoshanah Rabbah and recite
portions from the holy literature?
Answer: Since this day is the
last day of judgment for this
period, every effort is exerted to
achieve virtues on this day. The
selection is called Tikkun, just as
it is called on the night of
Shavuoth. Some contend that if
one might be judged guilty for
not having read enough or
learned enough of the holy
literature he makes up for it on
this night. Others read the
Psalms because it is on this day
that King David, who was the
author of the Psalms, is regarded
as the guest of every Jewish
succah Others contend that this
was the day or the holiday
dedicated to the importance of
the Oral Law, and thus they
study portions of the law to show
their respect for the continuance
of the Jewish heritage through
the Oral Law which consists of
commentaries on the Bible.
