JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman
has denied that there has been
any change in the government's
land policy on the West Bank.
Addressing the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee, he referred to reports
in both the Israeli and local
Arabic press that the govern-
ment is planning to confiscate
land owned by West Bank Arabs
living abroad in order to enlarge
Jewish settlements in the oc-
cupied territory. Some sources
said certain lands were already
WEIZMAN did not elaborate
on those reports except to say
they were incorrect. But a
Military Government officer has
been appointed "to check the
allegations that there has been a
change in policy." The Israel
Lands Administration, which is
responsible for administering
Denies Any Change
t West Bank Policy
State-owned land, claimed the
only change has been to crack
down on misused or forged
powers of attorney assigned to
West Bank Arabs by relatives or
friends who have taken up
residence in foreign countries.
Hitherto, the absentee owners
were recognized as the legal
owners of the land provided that
they were not living in Arab
countries. Those who have fled to
Arab lands were considered to
have abandoned their property
and it was taken over by the
Members of the Knesset
committee were critical of the
government's land policies,
mainly because they seem in-
consistent and confused. Yosef
Tamir, a Likud MK, demanded
that the government make clear
decisions on land matters, make
them public and stick by them.
HE CHARGED that with
respect to land, there were now
three "governments" the
democratically elected one, the
"right wing group which distorts
the process of reason by which
the government should abide,"
an allusion to the militant Gush
Emunim, and the left wing
which, he charged, is blowing up
the issue out of proportion to the
detriment of Israel's image
The reports of a change in
government land policy coincided
with reports that the Defense
Ministry is considering the large-
scale expropriation of Arab land
to increase the acreage of Gush
Emunhim settlements around
Jerusalem and in Samaria.
Deputy Defense Minister
Mordechai Zipori visited the
Gush settlements last week and
reportedly promised them to look
into their needs.

A gloomy Israel began
to assess the damage
military and political
done by the 54-44 Senate
vote that opened the way
for the supply of advanced
U.S. warplanes to Saudi
Arabia and Egypt as well
as to Israel.
Prime Minister Men-
achem Begin termed it
"definitely a negative
turning point from the
standpoint of Israel's
DEFENSE circles said the
American decision will have
adverse effects on Israel which
would now be compelled to
devote special attention to a
possible aerial threat from Saudi
Arabia where no such threat
existed before. Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman was quoted in
Maariv as saying that Israel
fought against the planes deal,
and "I hope we shall not have to
fight against the planes."
Shimon Peres, leader of the op-
position Labor Alignment, said
"It's a sad day in Israel-U.S.
relations." He noted that "It was
the Senate, not the Admin-
istration that voted against us,"
implying that Israel's traditional
strong support in that body was

Sam Schutzer, a resident of
West Palm Beach for 54 years,
will be 90 years young on July 4.
The Tuesday Club of the
Jewish Community Center will be
making him a birthday party on
June 13 and will pay tribute to
this outstanding leader and
organizer of the Jewish Com-
munity of Palm Beach County as
well as in the West Palm Beach
Community. The Ruth Hyde
Group consisting of Lee Duchin,
Ann March, and Ruth Hyde will
present an original program
which will depict his life in
narrative and song.
SAM Schutzer was the
publisher and editor of the only
Jewish Newspaper Our Voice in
Palm Beach County for 42 years,
the first issue being December,
1932. Our Voice reported events
and offered comment on local
Jewish activities. Mr. Schutzer
gathered and wrote the news,
designed the layouts and even
delivered the fine paper for free.
Sometimes he didn't make
enough on the advertisinng to
cover the cost of printing.
"It was a labor of love," he
said simply. Sam Schutzer
published the only Jewish
newspaper in Palm Beach County
for 42 years and on Jan. 16,1975,
Our Voice was "put to bed". It
was merged with the Jewish
Federation Reporter and ex-
panded to the present day Jewish
But Sam Schutzer was more
than an editor. He was a builder
as well. Born in Austria, he
arrived in the United States with
his family at the turn of the
century. They settled in the lower
east side of New York City and
later moved to Newark, N.J.
HIS formal schooling extended
to the sixth grade. He entered the
jewelry business as an errand boy

information for effective en-

CJF President Jerold C.
Hoffberger has stated that en-
dowment funds represent the
"sustaining reservoir for
Federation's future." In his
keynote address at the last CJF
General Assembly, he said that
aiding local Federations in
establishing or expanding their
endowment funds must be a high
priority area of activity for the
Options for endowment
programming which can be best
adapted to the resources of
smaller cities are emphasized in
the new CJF manual. These
ICC Seniors to Pay Tribute To
Sam Schutzer on his Birthday
options are Letter of Intent,
Philanthropic Funds, bequests
and life insurance policies.
THE Letter of Intent is a
statement expressing the in-
tention of the signers to con-
tribute in some form to the
Federation endowment fund.
The Philanthropic Fund is a
gift creating a named fund for
which the donor or those
designated by him may make
regarding the distribution of
capital or income, subject to the
approval of the Federation.
Federations in the United
States and Canada currently hold
a total of approximately $75
million in Philanthropic Funds,
out of a grand total of nearly $300
million in endowment funds.
BEQUESTS and life insurance
policies are traditional and well-
known endowment fund options.
The Council's manual provides
detailed explanations of these
options, along with tax and legal
considerations. Also included are
guidelines for organizing an
endowment program through a
committee structure consisting of
various operating committees.
The handbook is largely a
response to a new and growing
interest on the part of smaller
communities in initiating en-
dowment programs. It was used
as the basis for the first seminar
for smaller cities on endowment
development at the recent CJF
Quarterly Meeting in New York.
Chaired by Norman A. Sugar-
man, chairman of the Council's
Committee, the meeting was
attended by 36 representatives of

Consultant Louis A. Novins or

Terror at Orly
The latest attack at Orly Airport demonstrates to the
French, once and for all. that pandering to the Palestine
movement will not leave it immune from terrorism.
For the first time, even the French are angered not
for the reason that they have been betrayed in their hopes
for immunity, but for the reason that terrorism is an
attack on human decncy wherever it may occur and in no
matter what name.
Up until now. the French have paid only lip service in
their expressions of regret so long as terrorist activities
took place elsewhere.
But if we are particularly tough on the French here,
we must be tough on other nations, as well, all of which,
including our own, have been moved to do little more than
pay Up service to terrorist activities.
It is about time that the international community
took itself in hand to help put an end to terrorism once and
for all. That it does not do so stems from a number of
things, not the least of which is that the United Nations is
a capon whose business is controlled by the Communists'
and the Third World.
Both of these entities are. themselves, either actively
terrorist-involved or else utterly sympathetic to terrorist
aims and actions.
Another, and this one hits Uncle Sam the hardest, is
that to insist upon international terrorist restraints would
be to touch the core of the petrodiplomacy of the American
Until we stop thinking greedily, and start thinking
humanely. Orly terrorist actions may be expected to
Keeping Our Rostrums Free
It is reasonable to believe that some people agree with
what Sen. Lowell Weicker had to say at a meeting of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington
so far as the Carter Administration generally and the
President's National Security Adviser Zbigniew
Brzezinski. specifically, are concerned.
The amount of applause that greeted Weicker's
repeated allegations that Brzezinski is an anti-Semite
certainly supports this assumption.
On the other hand, it is also reasonable to believe that
others do not agree either with what he said or that
Weicker had a right to make of his AIPAC rostrum a
platform on which to air issues in what may best be
described as a "cheap shot" way.
The American Jewish community is in for a long
political battle with this Administration. The President
and his subordinates, including Brzezinski. have all
declared their support for the security of Israel. But as
Rabbi Israel Miller, interim president of the American
Zionist Federation, said recently, the Jewish community
wants not just the right words, but correct deeds. And
this has not been forthcoming.
But in seeing that the Administration does perform
these deeds, the just cause of Israel is done no service by
irresponsible name-calling against Administration of-
ficials either by Jewish officials or public officeholders who
use Jewish forums. The cause of Israel is too important to
sink to this level.
A Slur Against Jews
Our attention has been called to an advertisement in
the local press from the First Citizens Municipal Cor-
poration of Atlanta. Ga.. run during the recent Passover
The ad. touting municipal bonds at a high tax free
interest rate, features a cartoon of a bearded and skull-
capped Jew holding what appears to look like a
The punchline of this tasteless production reads:
"Don't Passover This Tax Free Investment."
We are appalled.
We consider this an affront to Jews and Judaism. Its
implications are rooted in the ancient canards of anti-
Semitism that only Jews are wise in the ways of money
and would be clever enough not to pass up the kind of
offer that the ad describes.

A GOOD friend called over the
weekend to remark that surely I
was engaging in dramatic hyper-
bole in my last column when I
talked about "our coming
despair" and that, as Jews, we
are headed for "bitter times in
I told him I was not. I honestly
believe this, or I would not have
said so. He was shocked, and his
reaction reminded me of two
instant cliches: the supreme self-
indulgence of the Jews of Ger-
many 'before the rise of Hitler and
the Sinclair Lewis satire. It Can't
I DO NOT have in mind such
cynical instances as occurred in
the Florida State Legislature the
other day when Rep. Edmond
Fortune (D., Pace) and Sen.
Dempsey Barron (D., Panama
City) engaged in anti-Semitic
witticism about the jewfish, each
wondering "if the jewfish is
found around the bank."
Both men, apart from being
nauseous pork-choppers who
once again have their greedy
thumbs on the windpipe of South
Florida's (read Jewish) fortunes,
are classical bigots with a
penchant for unintelligence.
Particularly, when I think of
Sen. Barron, I think of a reptile
with the lidded eyes of its low
estate from which it is inex-
tricably bound never to rise by
the ill-fortune of evolution.
IS IT NOT Barron who, by his
shenanigans in the Legislature,
continues to doom South Florida
to automobile insurance no eco-
nomically middle class person or
lower can afford? Does Barron
not engage in these shenanigans
as a greedy, self-interested repre-
sentative of the trial lawyer's
breed who profit enormously
from inequitable rate structures
and immoral insurance practices?
Barron knows a thing or two,
then, about banks himself and
ought to feel quite comfortable
around jewfish reckoned in terms
of his own anti-Semitic frame of
But this frame of reference is
classical Christianity, and it is
not what will bring us upon the
"bitter times in America" I
talked about here last week.
WHAT I have in mind is a
political rather than a religious
anti-Semitism rooted in the
American Jewish community's
solid identification with Israel
even when Israel is no longer the
fair-haired child of American
Political anti-Semitism is, of
course, rooted in religious anti-
Semitism which lost its
respectability for Christians
when Israel was reborn in 1948
against every Christian principle
that the Jews must remain
doomed to exile, wandering and
contempt until they accept the
The rebirth shook Christianity
because it raised doubts about
the truth of this New Testament
dictum. There can be little dis-
belief that the ecumenism of the
1960's was a genuine first effort
on the part of Christians of good-
will to reconcile their dogmatic
faith concerning Jews, a faith
suddenly shown to be absurd,
with the realities of the Jewish
THE GROWING political iso-
lation of Israel these days, most
readily explained by petro-
politics, is now being seized upon
by old line religious anti-Semites
to revive their trust in their old
line religious dogmas.
Should Israel go down the
tubes, then they can believe that
they were never wrong from a
religious point of view in the first
place except perhaps to be
shaken briefly in their anti-
Semitic faith for which they can
say some mea culpas and be
But the way to achieve this end
is through political manipulation,
not religious assault, and that is
why "our coming despair" will be
political in nature.
I HAVE in mind the recent
comment in a column by Garry
Wills (Universal Press Syn-
dicate) that some of the signs
that Jimmy Carter is finally
beginning to score a degree of
success in his administration
must include, among other
reasons. "the 'even-handed'
approach to the Middle East
(he has achieved) that other
Presidents yearned for, inef-
fectually, because of the political
importance of American Jews."
Or take Alaska's Sen. Mike
Gavel, who declared during the
course of the heated Senate
debate on the joint jet sale to
Israel. Egypt and Saudi Arabia,
a debate the administration won
and that anti-Israel forces
consider a major defeat for the
entrenched Israeli lobby":
Despite pressure from Jewish
constituents, his own vote. Gavel

Past Accomplishments Not Enough
EDITOR: The Jewish Floridian,
My husband and I arrived in
1969 to spend our first winter in
Century Village. It was new and
beautiful and our people felt we
were entitled to rest and to leave
the solution of all the problems
to the younger generation. We
couldn't understand the great
changes taking place the
Hippies, the war, the divorces,
the intermarriages, the moral
Soon we realized that our
accomplishments of the past were
not enough to sustain us and
there was much still to be done.
We were Jews living among non-
Jews and we missed our
synagogues and organizations, so
the "workers" forgot about
retirement and went into action.
In those early days, it was no
easy task to inspire and en-
courage people to believe and
invest in dreams, but we suc-
ceeded far beyond our ex-

Founding Sisterhood President,
| NEW YORK Three out of
every five viewers of the recent
television dramatic series
Holocaust feel that they un-
derstand better what happened
to the Jews under Hitler as a
result of the program.
The impact of Holocaust was
one of the major findings of a
viewer poll, which were made
public here at a news conference
in connection with the American
Jewish Committee's 72nd annual
meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria
Hotel. Richard Maass, president
of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, presided at the con-
director of AJC's Information
I and Research Services, made
public the preliminary results of
the nationwide sampling. The
poll, commissioned by the
American Jewish Committee,
was compiled by the professional
polling firm of Response
Analysis, of Princeton, N.J.
Alfred Vogel, vice president of
the concern, gave a technical
analysis of the data compiled.
In reporting on the educational
effect of the drama series,
Himmelfarb pointed out that 59
percent of those polled said that
they understood better after
seeing the programs what the
Nazi persecution of the Jews was
Further, he declared, 85
percent of the viewers thought it
a good idea to remind Americans
of the Nazi persecutions and 72
percent thought it sensible to
teach children about the
SEVENTY-SIX percent of the
viewers expressed the opinion
that the programs gave an ac-
curate picture of the Nazis'
treatment of the Jews.
Himmelfarb pointed to the
replies to a number of questions
as "indicating a humane, sen-
sitive and realistic attitude on the
part of most Americans on what
had happened to the Jews in
Germany, and on the possibilities
of similar occurences happening
elsewhere in the world today."

U.S. Jewry Cautioned Against Paranoia
NEW YORK The executive
head of the American Jewish
Committee cautioned the
American Jewish community to
moderate its "public paranoia"
and not to try to go it alone.
"We know very well that we
need friends and allies, but we
won't make friends or keep them
unless we moderate our public
paranoia," Bertram H. Gold,
executive vice president, stated
in his keynote address at the
Committee's 72nd annual
meeting here. "Certainly we must
stand firm on issues that are
important to us. But everyone
who disagrees with us is not
automatically 'the enemy,' and
every time we are called upon to
trade off one goal for another is
not the end of the world.
GOLD SPOKE two days after
the U.S. Senate had voted not to
block the Carter Administra-
tion's plane package deal, in
which the sale of planes to Israel
was joined to sales of planes to
Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The
American Jewish community in
large part has been highly critical
of the arrangement.
In a far-ranking talk on "What
is Troubling American Jews,"
Gold gave particular attention to
"dissent," which he said was
creating the gravest amount of
strains and tensions.
He told his audience, made up
of delegates from across the U.S.,
that American Jews, on the basis
of surveys taken by the Com-
mittee, seemed to hold few
qualms about dissenting from
various American policies, in-
cluding those affecting Israel.
Predicting that if the general
American public were to perceive
American interests and Jewish
interests to differ, the American
Jewish community could rn-
ticipate increased attacks on
Jewish lobbying efforts.
"IT WILL be our job," he
continued, "to point out that
ethnic lobbying is as legitimate
as business lobbying, union
lobbying, regional lobbying,
veteran lobbying, aged lobbying,
and any other kind of lobbying.
The truth is that ethnic lobbying
has always played a far greater
role in the rpyl""g American
foreign policy than those who run
our foreign policy are willing to
admit. So we do not, and should
not, hesitate to dissent and to
criticize American foreign policy
when we disagree with it."
Gold went on to say that the
American Jewish community
seemed "less surefooted" when
public dissent from Israeli
policies were involved.
"I am equally disturbed," he
added, "by those who view any
dissent from Israeli policy as
treason," and by those who
consider such dissent
'courageous' and 'heroic' Both
groups perceive the American
Jewish community as rigid,
controlling, and monolithic. And
such a perception and, if there
is any substance to it, such a
reality must be thoroughly
"What is important," he
stated, "is that the American
Jewish community is unified in
its essential support for Israel.

Israel as "a strategic asset in a

"LOTS of Americans look at it
(Israeli as a net strategic loss,"
he said. "They are unwilling to
recognize the strategic advantage
from our association with Israel
even though at times it presents
challenges and difficulties such
as coming to Israel's support in
the Yom Kippur War."

Jewish Committee had recently
polled 1,100 American Jews from
across the U.S. as to what was
concerning them most u

survey found two kinds of

of Israeli intervention stopped
Syria from attacking Jordan in
1971 when King Hussein was
battling Palestinian terrorists.
KEEGAN challenged the
Pentagon's description of the F15
warplane as a "defensive
weapon." He called that
description "one of the most
misleading" statements the
Pentagon has ever made. He
denounced the President's air-
craft package as injudicious
because it has the effect of
weakening Israel and thereby is
detrimental to U.S. interests.
But Davis observed that Saudi
Arabia, which will receive 60
Fl5s in the package endorsed by
the Senate Monday, is "pro-
West" and the package, he said,
will allow Israel to retain military
superiority in the area. Collins
said the U.S. could not have
supplied Saudi Arabia with
aircraft of lesser quality because
the Saudis are a "proud people"
and would regard such treatment
as an "insult."
Rostow said "no effective"
Middle East policy is possible

its Arab neighbors that ensures
Israel's strength and

ami- Zionism mask hioes BRitain's national fRont
By ROBERT WISTRICH
LONDON The October War
of 1973. with its resultant trend
towards the moral and political
isolation of Israel in the inter-
national arena, has reinforced
this feeling of interdependence.
Israel is today perceived by the
mass of diaspora Jews (even
those indifferent to Zionist
ideology) as a force within the
Jewish people, and not some-
thing apart from it.
Similarly, in Israel itself, there
has been a parallel process of
Judaization, a greater awareness
of the common features in the
Israeli and Jewish destiny. This
intertwining of the Jewish and
the Israeli fate makes it almost
impossible to distinguish bet-
ween anti-Zionism and anti-
Semitism, even though from a
logical standpoint such a dif-
ferentiation might be desirable.
THE FACT is that the sur-
vival of Israel is the core-issue for
most Jews today because it has
been broadly accepted as crucial
to their own existence and self-
definition. It is not simply one
political issue among others, but
the issue in terms of which the
future of the diaspora itself is
Hence, anything which tends
to diminish or weaken the
viability of the Jewish State is
seen as an assault on Jewish con-
sciousness in its innermost being.
For the first time in modern
Jewish history, anti-Zionism is
perceived by a broad consensus
of Jewish opinion as a major
threat to Jewish identity.
UNDER THE impact of the
Holocaust, Zionism became the
expression of a Jewish will to
independence which would no
longer be determined by defini-
tions imposed from outside. In
this respect, anti-Zionists operate
with an anachronistic concept of
Jewish aspirations, applicable at
best before 1939, and even then
Moreover, they forget that
their own anti-Zionist rhetoric
has itself become a convenient
substitute for the unfashionable
and politically discredited anti-
Semitism of the Fascist era.
In the Soviet context, aca-
demic distinctions lo3e their
relevance anti-Zionism and
anti-Semitism are in practice
identical. Beneath the thin veneer
of Marxist Leninist verbiage, it
is not difficult to detect the
resurgence of the pogrom

SIMILARLY, in the Moslem.
Arab world, latent Islamic anti-
Judaism has been mobilized for
decades in the service of the
political struggle against
Zionism. The territorial conflict
over Palestine has been greatly
exacerbated by the introduction
of atavistic, religious motifs and
the anti-Semitic myths of Euro-
pean racialism (the Protocols of
Zion, etc.) which have colored
Arab perceptions of Israel.
In spite of President Sadat's
initiative, the radical Arab States
reject not only Israel's right to

Semitic discrimination against
the Jewish minorities in Arab
Even in the West, events have
exist, but also its essence as an
independent Jewish State exer-
cizing sovereignty over what
they regard as "Moslem"
territory. As in the Soviet bloc
countries, governmental anti-
shown that anti-Zionism as a
general ideological label can be
used against Jewish citizens,
especially where the government
adopts a pro-Arab policy. De
Gaulle's notorious reference to
the Jews at his 1967 press con-
ference was perhaps a signal.
INSINUATIONS of dual
loyalty against Jews supporting
Israel and the growing emphasis
on the importance of the Jewish
lobby in the United States are
further cases in point.
The rise of a vociferous New
Left opposition in the West after
1967, which aggressively ad-
vocates the abolition of Israel as
a "racist," Fascist State, has
posed a further threat to the
security of diaspora Jews.
In Britain, the extreme Left
have largely spearheaded the
anti-Zionist assault on campuses,
which has led to the banning of
some Jewish societies and
restrictions on the free speech of
Jews supporting Israel in the
All these facts are indisputable
and undermine the claim that one
can sharply distinguish between"
anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism
For this purpose it is quite un-
necessary to assert that Zionism
and Judaism are identical, as
some defenders of Israel have
ZIONISM and Judaism are
related, but not synonymous.
There are Orthodox Jews who
reject Zionism in its present
political form just as there are
secular Jews who are indifferent
to Israel, and Israelis who feel no
affinity for Judaism. There have
been, and still are, many Gentilijy
supporters of Israel and Zionism
who would not dream of con-
verting to Judaism, just as there
are Jewish and Israeli an-
tagonists of Zionism who do not
deny their origins.
In short, not all Jews are
Zionists and not all Zionists are
Jews. To equate Zionism and
Judaism is to fall into the anti-
Zionist trap of presenting Jewish
nationalism as an undif-
ferentiated, monolithic entity
rather than an intensely diverse
and pluralist movement.

the plea made to his friends and
acquaintances by President-elect
Itzhak Navon, who took over
from President Ephraim Katzir
at the end of last month.
Itzhak Navon has always been
a man of the people, and now that
he is due to become their formal
representative, he does not want
to be cut off from them by cere-
monial and the duties that fall to
Israel's first citizen.
DAVID BEN-GURION, Is-
rael's first Prime Minister, whose
secretary and adviser Mr. Navon
was. predicted many years ago
that Navon would one day
become President of Israel.
Today, the country's newspaper
columnists are saying that he
was "born to be President."
Many people are expecting
great things of him. As he
himself says: "Expectations of

After statehood in 1948, Navon
held a number of diplomatic
posts in Latin America. From
1952 to 1963, he was one of Ben-

Office. He then spent a period in

Support of affirmative action programs to

but firm opposition to "rigid racial quotas" was
reaffirmed by the Carter Administration's top
domestic policy adviser.
Stuart Eizenstat, Assistant to the President
for Domestic Affairs and Policy, addressing a
luncheon session of the American Jewish Com-
mittee's 72nd annual meeting in New York,
pointed out that the administration had ex-
pressed this view in its brief submitted to the
Supreme Court in the Bakke case.
The Court is expected to rule soon on the case,
in which Allan Bakke, a white male student, was
denied entry to the University of California
medical school although Blacks with lower ad-
mission test scores were admitted under a quota
reserved for members of minority groups.
Pointing out that the results of past dis-
crimination could be overcome only through a
system of flexible targets, Eizenstat warned that
the establishment of a quote system would defeat
the purpose of equal opportunity in education,
employment, and other areas of public concern.
The oil-producing United Arab Emirates are
being charged by the American Jewish Congress
with violating the New York State anti-
discrimination law by requiring job applicants to
state their religion.
In a formal complaint filed with the State
Division of Human Rights, the Congress cited a
full-page advertisement in the Wall Street
Journal of Feb. 17, 1978, recruiting "professors,
associate professors and assistant professors" for
the academic year 1978-79 in arts, political science
and management, education, science and law.
In response to the advertisement, Martin
Hochbaum a PhD in political science and a
former faculty member at Brooklyn, Hunter and
Lehman Colleges, Long Island University and
New York University sent a letter requesting
an application form to the United Arab Emirates
embassy in Washington, D.C.
A leader of the American Jewish Congress in
New York gave the House of Lords in London a
copy of the Saudi Arabian blacklist and said an
examination of the entries confirms the "essential
anti-Jewish core" of the Arab boycott of Israel.
Will Maslow, general counsel of the American
Jewish Congress, told a Select Committee of the
Lords that the Saudi blacklist had a separate
section for British firms numbering 100 pages
containing the names of more than 1,100 British
companies and their affiliates.
He said the phrase, "Zionist tendencies,"
appears in Arabic alongside about 20 percent of
thefirms listed, including such companies as
Great Universal Stores, Marks & Spencer and
S G. Warburg. Fifteen Jewish organizations
with no commercial interests also appear on the

The Festival of Shavuot
accepted by the nations of the
world today. There is so much
evidence of this refusal to accept
God's moral law. When hundreds
of thousands of our brethren in
Russia are denied freedom and
are being persecuted; when many
of our bretheren in Russia are
denied jobs, when their children
are turned out of schools, when
some of the brightest Jewish men
and women are consigned to

God's moral laws are at a very
low ebb. By helping them to

By Rabbi Nathan Zelizer
There is a very strange passage
in the Talmud (Sab. 88a)
regarding the events leading up
to the giving of the Ten Com-
mandments at Mt. Sinai. The
rabbis speak of the reluctance on
the part of many nations to
accept the Torah.
The nations of the world re-
fused to accept the Ten Com-
mandments because they did
not want to renounce murder,
envy, idolatry and such other
laws would have meant a change
in their ways of life. Even among
the emancipated Israelites, there
were many who were not overly
anxious to assume the
obligations of the Com-
THERE was only one alter-
native God "forced" the
commandments upon our
forefathers. Say the rabbis
"The Holy One. blessed by He,
tilted the mountain over them
like a bowl and said to them
"If you accept the Torah, it is
well; if not. there shall be your
There is more to this statement
than the mere fact that "God just
wanted to get rid of the Ten
Commandments ". The statement
infers that the acceptance of the
moral law. is not subject to whim,
that one can take it or leave it.
The acceptance of the moral law
is an inescapable mandate of
conscience: that the moral law is
a voice that cannot be silenced;
the moral law cannot be rejected
and that it must be accepted. For
life to have any meaning, for life
to leave earth-bound limitations
and to reach greater heights, it
must be lived in accordance with
By accepting the Ten Com-
mandments. Israel became the
Priest people to mankind and
consecrated itself to serve as
God's champions of
righteousness, truth and justice.

today rededicate ourselves to the

decision, angry political recrim-
inations were developing here
with unpredictable repercussions
for the Begin government. Even
before the outcome of the Senate
vote was known, knives were
being sharpened for the
inevitable bloody postmortem.

program which calls for an
American commitment to supply

Some political observers ex-
pressed hope that President
Anwar Sadat's overwhelming
victory in the May 22 referendum
on dealing with Egypt's domestic
crisis will prompt him to resume
peace talks with Israel. Israeli
officials are still waiting for
Sadat's reply to Israel's request
for "counter proposals" to the
Begin peace plan on which
negotiations can be based.
MEANWHILE, it remained
unclear if and when the Cabinet
will discuss the key questions
posed by the U.S. for clarification
of Israel's peace plan. Those
questions were put to Begin and
Foreign Minister Moehe Dayan
by Carter and Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance last month, and the
Americano appear to regard
Israel's answers as crucial to the
resumption of the Middle East
Israel was asked whether the
sovereignty issue on the West
Bank will be resolved after the
five-year period of "self-rule"
proposed by Begin and if so,
how; and how Israel proposes to
allow the West Bank Arabs a
voice in determining their own
future, inasmuch as the Begin
government has flatly rejected
the American idea of a "limited
and departments were searching
for shoulders other than their
own on which to lay the blame for
Israel's political fiasco.

Dayan and Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman especially the
latter for not speaking out
more forcefully and at an earlier
stage against the linkage of sales

THE BATTLE was joined in
the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee where
Peres bitterly criticized the
government for failing to present
Israel's case properly to the
Senate and American public
opinion. He said former Labor
governments had been much
more effective in doing so.
Committee chairman Moshe
Arena, of Likud, accused the
former Labor-led governments of
having delayed the development
of Israel's own advanced jet
combat plane, the Kfir, which
would have made Israel less
dependent on American
Arens, a professor of aero-
nautics and a former top official
of Israel Aircraft Industries
which produces the Kfir, urged
the government to commit
greater resources to develop new
warplanes for the eighties.
The reaction of the Israelis in
general was that oil has once
again triumphed over logic,
friendship and ideology.

and Saudi Arabia "will adversely
affect the security of Israel."
HE SAID that "in light of the
first sale of offensive military
planes to Egypt (50 F5Esl, it is
imperative that the White House
and State Department encourage
President (Anwar) Sadat to
return to the peace table"
He added that the sale of the
F15s to the Saudis "gives the
United States the right to seek
greater moderation" from them.

It Was Israelis
By Edwin Eytan (Paris) and
Yitzhak Shargil (Tel Aviv)
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Passengers on an El Al flight
from Paris who had been targets
of an Arab terrorist machinegun
attack at Orly Airport, arrived at
Ben Gurion Airport in the early
hours May 21 with eyewitness
accounts of the shoot-out.
They claimed that had it not
been for the alertness and instant
response of Israeli security
guards, the Lod Airport
massacre of May 30. 1972. would
have been reoeated.
THE THREE terrorists were
killed in a hail of bullets near the
El Al boarding gate, but not
before one of them fatally shot a
French policeman. Two other
policemen and three passengers
waiting to board an Iberia Airline
flight to Malaga from an ad-
joining gate were wounded.
The arriving El Al passengers
credited Israeli security guards
with gunning down the terrorists.
Reports from Paris said French
police opened fire killing the
terrorists seconds after they drew
their weapons. The eye-witnesses
landed at Ben-Gurion Airport at
2 a.m. local time, many hours late
because their departure from
Paris was delayed by the attack.
There were only about a dozen
passengers in the El Al jumbo
jet. Originally a tourist party of
over 200 French insurance agents
was to have made the flight, but
the group canceled their trip after

made the trip anyway. Haddad
said he convinced nine others to
stay with the flight despite the
shock of the attack. Itzhak
Amram. of Tel Aviv, an Israeli
returning from Paris, said there
was chaos at the Orly terminal
when the shooting began. He said
there was no one to direct the
passengers until French police
arrived at the scene.
Another returning passenger
was Labor Minister Israel Katz.
He said he was certain the attack
was not directed at him because
he booked on the flight at the last
minute after reaching Paris from

America, charged the White
House with "turning America
away from its commitment to a
proven ally, '.he democratic State
HE CHARGED that "it is
clear that the Administration has
succumbed to Arab petrodollar
pressure and this new and
dangerous factor is now shaping
American foreign policy."
He added that Israel cannot be
blamed now for having doubts
about the reliability of U.S.
Howard Squadron, president
of the American Jewish
Congress, declared that "the
Senate vote is a setback to the
cause of peace" He said the sale
of the planes to the two Arab
countries "will justifiably
heighten Israel's fears for its
security and increase its concern
for territorial protection against
renewed Arab attacks."
He stated that the AJ
Congress was "disappointed" by
the President's intensive lob-
bying for the sales "particularly
in view of the campaign promises
he made about rejecting Arab oil
blackmail and slowing down the
WE ARE equally chagrined by
those Senators who for many
years publicly professed their
deep concern for peace and their
personal abhorrence of the
proliferation of arms sales in the
Middle East and nevertheless
voted for the Carter package"
Burton M. Joseph, national
chairman of the B'nai B'rith
stressed that "since it is the
Administration's position that
the plane package deal will make
the peace process easier, it is now
encumbent upon President
Carter to urge Egypt to return to
the peace table"
He said the Saudis should also
"urge President Sadat to be less
intransigent and more for-
thcoming." Joseph declared that
"the burden of proof is now on
the Administration to move the
Saudis and Egypt to take
meaningful steps toward peace"
Harry S. Taubenfeld, na
chairman of Herut-USA. ch
that "Israel stands alone,

policy which considers no U
