Concern Mounts for Fate
Of Helsinki Monitors
bviet treatment of the 20 im-
ported or exiled Helsinki
onitors in the Soviet Union and
implications of that treat-
lent on Soviet American
Nations is arousing increasingly
ad concern in the Congress.
|The Commission on Security
\d Cooperation in Europe, made
i of congressional members and
^ministration officials to
famine the results of the
elsinki Agreement, is focusing
particular attention" on
natoly Sharansky and
lexanderGinzburg, and another
oup member, Maria Slepak.
|REP DANTE B. Fascell (D.,

ission, and Mrs. Alexander
klzhenitsyn, wife of the exiled
pbel Prize winning author, are

I a session in the House of Rep-
sentatives. She is a founding
ember of the Alexander Ginz-
Irg Defense Committee.
[Meanwhile, Rep. Robert F.
inan (1)., Mass.), chairman of
International Commitee for
le Release of Anatoly
(laransky, said, "I know from
personal association" with
baransky "that he is an honest
dividual whose sole crime' is
insistence on monitoring the
npliance of the Soviet Union
Ith the provisions of the 1975
plsinki Agreement."
)rinan said the trial of
aransky "is the culmination of
beries of efforts by the Soviet
government to imprison or other-
wise silence all of the leaders of
the movement for freedom of
emigration for Soviet Jews."
Pointing to the treason charge
against Sharansky and the
timing of his trial to coincide with
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's
negotiations with Foreign Min-
ister Andrei Gromyko on nuclear
arms safeguards, Drinan said,
"The decision to place Sharansky
on trial must be seen as part of a
calculated effort by the Soviet
Union to demonstrate to the
United States that the USSR is
immune to criticism of human
rights violations. The Soviet
authorities hope in this way to
discourage further criticism."
IN ANOTHER development,
Sen. Alan Cranston (D., Calif.)
disclosed the text of a letter sent
June 26 by 43 senators to Soviet
leader Leonid Brezhnev asking
him to commute the sentences of
Vladimir Slepak and Ida Nudel
and to permit them to emigrate.
The senators noted that in
secret trials Slepak and Nudel
have been sentenced to five and
four years of exile within the
Soviet Union, respectively, on
charges "stemming from a public
demonstration of their commit-
ment to emigrate to Israel to join
their loved ones. We have dif-
ficulty understanding why their
actions warrant punishments,"
Cranston's office told the JTA.
To date his letter has not
received a response from
Brezhnev, a spokesman for
Cranston said.

Mrs. Sharansky Clashes With Prof.;
Affirms Carter 'Personal' Diplomacy
(JTA) Mrs. Avital
Sharansky has strongly op-
posed "private diplomacy"
as the means to seek allev-

Soviet dissidents and
Soviet Jewry and supports
President Carter's interces-
sion on her imprisoned hus-
band's behalf.
Jeremy J. Stone, a
Princeton University pro-
fessor who is director of the
Federation of American
Scientists, had testified
before the House Science
and Technology Committee
that the U.S. government
should attempt to secure
the release of some leading
Soviet dissidents like Uri

PRETORIA, S.A. With the
decision of the management com-
mittee of the city council of
Pretoria not to support the
application for the opening of the
Breytenbach Theatre because it
excludes Black people, and the
outburst of unfavorable comment
and publicity that the decision
now evokes, Pretoria again
stands in the midst of a con-
troversy that damages the
prestige of the city
It is more so now that even
foreign ambassadors are in-
directly involved in the dispute
over the opening of the
Breytenbach Theatre.
IT NOW appears that Itzhak
Unna, the Israeli Ambassador,
felt himself obliged to turn down
an invitation to see the play,
Golda, as a result of the decision
of the management committee.
He will rather go and see the play
based on the life of the former
woman premier of Israel in
It also appears that some other
foreign representatives are going
to follow Unna's example for the
same reason.
Obviously, the view of these
people will, in due course, be
conveyed to their various
governments, and obviously the
question will in due course be put
to South Africa's represen-
tatives: How is it possible that
other races can attend per-

cities but not in Pretoria?
LEAVE THE foreign reaction
there for a moment and also
the question whether it is ap-
propriate for a representative in
the position of Unna to apply
boycotts at this level then it
leaves us with the accomplished
fact that the controversy now
being conducted can only be
detrimental to the maintenance
of internal good race relations.

THE 31-MEMBER group
went to Auschwitz and Birkenau
where their emotions were
ravaged in the process of self-
realization as Jews. According to
Stern. "It was an important
lesson, but of equal importance is
the fact that Jewish-Polish life
once vibrant and flourishing is
dead today as there are only a few
Jews left in Poland. The contrast
to Israel was tremendous. It was
like leaving the kingdom of
darkness and coming into light.
That in itself, had even more of
an impact than Auschwitz.''

Did We Use War Criminals?
I Judiciary Subcommittee on

this week on the use of Nazi war

government to cover up the Nazi
Kar criminal cases that have been
Ifestering for almost 30 years.

Bill Okayed to Kick
Out Nazi War Criminals
The House Judiciary Committee
has approved a bill in the fight to
denaturalize and deport alleged
Nazi war criminals. The bill,
introduced by Rep. Elizabeth
Holtzman (D., N.Y.) now goes to
the floor for full House action.
The legislation would make
former Nazi war criminals
subject to deportation if they
entered the U.S. under the
Immigration and Nationality Act
of 1952. It would also prevent the
future entry of war criminals.
CURRENTLY, alleged war
criminals are subject to depor-
tation if they entered the U.S.
under special refugee legislation
in effect after World War II -
either the Displaced Persons Act
of 1948 or the Refugee Relief Act
of 1953.
Most of the recent legal action
against alleged Nazi war
criminals has been taken under
these two provisions. But the
1952 Immigration and
Nationality Act has no such
provision to deport persons if
they have engaged in persecution
because of race, religion,
nationality or political opinion.
The Holtzman bill applies to
these persons as well as to war
THE BILL also removes the
"stay of deportation" provision
irom the 1952 act.

New York City Councilman
Theodore Silverman, whose
district includes Crown Heights,
called the removal order "un-
conscionable," partly because it
came "at a time when responsible
leaders of both the Black com-
munity and the Jewish com-
munity are meeting to discuss
the problems of Crown Heights in
a rational manner."
HE SAID he would seek to
have the order cancelled and, if
the protection was removed, that
he would work to have it
Silverman said the order in-
dicated that the Koch ad-
ministration did not "fully
understand" what 770 Eastern
Parkway, the site of the
Lubavitch world headquarters,
"truly is," the "seat of an in-
ternational movement of the
Jewish faith."

Metaphor of Displeasure
President Carter's statements before the trials of
Anatoly Sharansky and Alexander Ginzburg and his
statements after their sentencing are, in themselves,
But they seem to bear less bite after the bark.
Those were brave warnings about reduction in trade
credits to the Soviet Union, about clamping down on
sending the Soviets U.S.-made computer systems and oil-
drilling equipment their technology can only dream about.
But now that both men are languishing in prison,
what of the warnings? Well, all are agreed that they were
mainly intended to be symbolic of the President's, and the
nation's, displeasure at the trials.
What this means is that trade credit restrictions and
an embargo on our technology to the Soviets will be a
metaphor for U.S. anguish over repeated Russian civil
rights violations.
The tragedy is that symbols, metaphors the Carter
collection of coercive tactics won't amount to anything
in practical terms so far as the victims of Soviet justice are
concerned. Nor will it amount to anything in the hope of
dissuading the Soviets from carrying out their plans for
the imprisoned dissidents.
What do a pound of symbols and a pound of meta-
phors weigh? Not a pound. At least, they weigh far less
than the computers and the oil rigs that, willy nilly, will be
making their way to Moscow in the end in any case. After
all. business is business. Civil rights violations? Aren't
they just a metaphor or something?
Dangerous Division in Israel
We agree with our correspondent at the United
Nations. David Horowitz, that there is a growing inter-
national intrigue to oust Prime Minister Menachem Begin
from power.

of Israel. It is perhaps also understandable in Labor

his party to power; but it is less forgiveable.
What must be understood is that the term, "in-
transigent," as repeatedly used in the world press to
describe Begin, is a propagandists tool whose object is to
bend Israel's will to Arab demands, and Peres is making it
no secret that he would be more pliable in this regard than
the Boss.
No one made this more clear than the Prime Minister
himself, when he said this week that "intransigent"
means, as the Arabs and their sympathizers see it, "an
obstacle to peace."
As for Begin, he sees his role less in these terms than
as an obstacle to "capitulation." He did not have to say
that Peres and Labor would be less of an obstacle to
capitulation that is self-evident.
The Image Wears Thin
Our own reaction to all of this may seem somewhat
surprising, particularly in view of the excellent press that
Egypt's President Sadat has been getting ever since his
November initiative in going to Jerusalem.
As we see it, time is running out for Sadat and his
public relations-inspired image. The longer he puffs on his
pipe, the longer he talks about his patience and Prime
Minister Begins "intransigence," the more does the thin-
ness of the image emerge in all of its slender relief.
So long as Begin sticks to his guns, Sadat's "peace"
demands become all the more obvious as deceptions
designed to engineer the final Arab solution to the Israeli
problem. This was made eminently clear the other day in
Austria, when Sadat seemed suddenly to "give" a little in
his demand for Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank
and Gaza.
We expect no earth-shattering breakthrough in
London this week therefore, but it at least demonstrates
that the world's determination to sell Israel out at the
drop of a burning ash from the Sadat "peace" pipe was
excessively hasty and entirely unnecessary.
Now, if only Shimon Peres can see it this way too.

Peres Ambitions O'erleap TTiemselves
The scenario, whether scripted
in Washington, Cairo or in Kurt
Waldheim's sanctum at the
United Nations, it makes little
difference, for there can be no
doubt that Shimon Peres and his
colleagues in the Opposition are
gloating over the possibilities it
offers them the recapture of
the Government from Likud.
Involved in this scenario, no
doubt, is the latest Mondale
flight to Israel where he made it
his Brzezinski-inspired business
to confer not only with the Likud
leaders but also with the the
ambitious Peres and others of the
Opposition in a gesture of en-
The Vice Presidents visit,
originally earmarked as a tribute
to Israel's 30th anniversary,
actually set in motion a sequence
of events which, as this corres-
pondent viewed them, could only
be interpreted as conspiratorial in
nature, a maneuver to downgrade
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
and his Likud regime.
THE weU-orcheetrated scen-
ario, which ia certain to abort
following the staged performance
in London this week, called for a
Mondale follow-up visit with
Anwar el-Sadat in Egypt where
the not so friendly Bruno
Kreiaky and the valiant Willy
Brandt who had themselves,
with the possible help of Israeli
Opposition leaders, worked out a
more moderate Mideast plan -
he met with Shimon Peres; and
the two, aa they exchanged views
about the future, must have had

the "peacemaker" handed over to

the latest six-point Egyptian

matum demanding Israel's
complete withdrawal from
Samaria and Judea. including,
mind vou. Jerusalem, and the
Gaza Strip. The plan, for obvious
reasons, completely ignored reso-
lutions 242 and 338.
Having thus presented his pro-
posals to Jimmy Carter's emis-
sary, the benevolent "peace-
maker," following the scenario
blueprint, set out for Vienna
where, through the medium of
one thought in mind: how soon
will a more "compromising"
Mapai- Labor replace the
"stubborn" and "intransigent"
The Egyptian President, it
appears clear from his latest ulti-
matum, is following a pattern tie
had set from the very time he
visited Jerusalem last November,
namely, playing the role of
peacemaker" before the world,
more especially before Washing-
ton, while in reality the wilv
Egyptian is blueprinting a pro-
cedure with the encourage-
ment of the White House and the
State Department through
which he hopes to gain a victory
over Israel without the resort to
IN THIS sinister scheme, and
faithful to the scripted scenario,
he has sought and also won the
support of elements even within
the Jewish world, elements that
stand opposed to Prime Minister
Begins policies. Thus, the
apostle Sadat not only met with
Shimon Peres, but also with the
embittered Nahum Goldmann.
Moreover, his European contacts
included a conference with
Secretary General Kurt
No wonder Sadat found it
expedient to break off nego-
tiations with Israel so suddenly.
Why negotiate with Israel under
the Premiership of Begin when he
can enlist the outside world into
pressuring Jerusalem to accept
his terms minus direct talks?
And failing that, he can at
least hope to have the U.S.
impose a plan which in his esti-
mation may become instrumental
in bringing about the fall of the
Begin Government.
Surely, without U.S. support,
Sadat might never have broken
off the talks with Israel. It is

Moscow No Place for Olympics
Friday. July 28.1978
Volume 4
Number 15
I agree with Rabbi Joseph
Lookstein and the Community
Relations Council about the 1980
Olympic Games scheduled to be
held in Moscow. As a matter of
record, I anticipated them just
five years ago in a column
published here and I am ready to
join them and others in forcing
the issue, including pressure on
NBC to cancel that lucrative
television deal the Soviets have
made. Based on our experience of
Hitler and 1936, the time to begin
the movement is now.
The column, which appeared in
The Jewish Floridian on Sep-
tember 28. 1973, is worth
repeating at this time. Given the
circumstances of the Ginzburg
and Sharansky trials, that piece
is as up-to-date today as it was
five years ago. Here it is:
THE SOVIET Union has
applied to the International
Olympic Committee for the
privilege of holding the Olympic
Games in Moscow in 1980.
It would seem more fitting,
given the conditions in that
country and the experience at the
recent World University Games
held there, that the application be
made for 1984. And on the Great
Stadium that will be erected for
the purpose of sharing in in-
ternational amity through
amateur sports, should be the
slogans mounted on George
Orwell's Ministry of Truth
building in that famed account of
a dictatorship of the future:
"War Is Peace
"Freedom Is Slavery
"Ignorance Is Strength."
Those of us with long
memories recall the futile fight to
prevent American participation
in the 1936 Olympics held in
Hitler's Berlin because of the
German treatment of Jews. The
games probably would not have
been awarded to Germany had
the decision not been made prior
to Hitler taking power in 1933,
and the international athletic
powers-that-were could find no
way but postponement and
they were not about to do that
because it takes many years to
build the facilities for a proper
BUT THE 1980 decision has
not yet been made, although
Moscow at this point is the only
applicant, and there is ample
reason to muster an alliance of
Jews. Christians and just plain
libertarians to deny the honor to
the Soviet Union.
A preview of what may be ex-
pected by Jews at the Olympic
Games if they are held in Moscow
took place there not too many
weeks ago when the Israeli teams
were subjected to what waa
apparently organized anti-
Semitism and those Russian
Jews who came to see and
support them were subjected to
official abuse and discrimination.
Even in 1936 Berlin, the Nats
behaved with more decorum
when it came to Jewish athleto,
no doubt because of the
organized pressure from the
| United States and several other
' countries. There were even two
Jews both women on the
German team despite the ob-
stacles put in the way of all
Jewish athletes even aspiring for
the team.
The protest movement against
American participation in the
1936 Olympics is a fascinating
part of American Jewish history
and might provide a blueprint tor
those involved in the present
struggle to save Soviet Jewry.
One can almost picture the
revived America Communist
Party playing the same role ae
the German-American Bund in
those days, for the issue was i
heated one that found many
liberals, Christian clergymen and
the labor unions joining with
Jewish organizations while the
Bund leaders gloated at the
official attitude of America

nanating from that country to
Aicate that President Sadat's

prse, not better. Will this have

Will Prime Minister Begin be
able to hold his coalition govern-
ment in power? What "behind
the scenes pressures," if any, are
being applied by well intentioned
diaspora Jewry to replace Begin
with a so-called more moderate
leader? If they are being applied
can they be successful?
Will the radical Arab states
(Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen) and
the PLO get restless beyond
control or foolishly allow them-
selves to be pushed into another
military engagement by the
Soviet government?
IN ADDITION to all of these
perplexing questions we must not
forget the historic instability of
Arab governments. Should any
of the so-called moderate leaders
fall from office what will follow?
Saudi Arabia is very important
in the determination of any peace
settlement in the Middle East
today. Its oil and its ac-
cumulation of incomprehensible
billions of American dollars make
it a necessary, vital government
in defining the peace terms.
Has it got even more "clout"
than it exhibited in the days
which preceded the American
Senate's approval of the admin-
istration's "tie in" package plane
deal? Will it impose such "clout"
on our government for further
concessions inimical of Israel's
best interests? How secure is its
own government? Will it con-
tinue to support Sadat?
THESE ARE some of the im-
ponderables which cause us to
hesitate to issue a positive
position statement at this time.
When the answers to some of
these questions become clearer,
the reader's position and ours will
become easier to define and will,
in all probability, be very much
the same.
Note: Watch the Lebanon
situation. Can Israel stand still
for a complete Syrian takeover?
Who (outside of the Israelis)
cares about the wholesale
slaughter of Christians? Is Syria
preparing the way for a new
Russian base in the heart of the
Middle East?
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I quote July 14 Jewish
Floridian, "Don't try to divide
us, Carter is told" at Convention
of Rabbinical Leaders a state-
ment in itself a paradox to the
real danger facing Israel and the
American Jew division among
I refer to the letter of (Munich)
appeasement which the 37 pres-
tigious American Jewish per-
sonalities sent to the leaders pf
the Israeli peace group in April in
support of their demand for
greater flexibility by Begin in
dealing with the enemy. Are we
blinded by their intransigence, to
obtain Israel's submission to
Arab dominance?
This "letter" released to the
New York Times placed it in the
category of a public announce-
ment thereby infringing on the
intense feelings of America's six
million Jews.
The signers by their action
negated by open challenge the
responsibility and integrity of the
Israeli Government in its life and
death struggle, when it needed
every ounce of the moral support
of American (Christian and Jew)
public opinion. This divisiveness
can but give aid and comfort to
the enemy.
Anwar Sadat did his
homework well when he came to
Israel proposing peace without
benefit of open and free dis-
cussion the greatest public
relations performance in history,
offering nothing with every-
thing to gain and nothing to lose,
the real purpose to focus world
attention to himself.
He took a page out of the book
by Germany's foremost military
strategist, Gen. Clausewitz,
"Determine your enemy's center
of gravity, power center, against
which you concentrate your
attack" in this case Israel's
center of gravity (power) was and
hopefully is American public
opinion and military aid. Sadat
shared in the latter but needed a
shift in public opinion, and the
notorious 37 signers fell victim to
the ruse. The enemy can now
with assurance harden its nego-
tiating position.
And so these few but leading
Jewish personalities influencing
the "peace now" group (gam-
bling their future against
declared enemies) placed the
Israeli Government in an in-
tractable position.

that before and we used to heed
it, unfortunately. Americans like
Avery Brundage and Sherrill
believed the Nazis in 1936 while
Hitler exploited the games for
purposes of Nazi propaganda,
and the protests failed to prevent
American participation at Berlin.
To show their contempt for
world opinion, the Soviets even
invited as a special guest to the
past summer's contest Arab
terrorist Arafat whose only claim
to athletic prowess is having been
a leader of the group which
murdered the Israeli athletes
during the 1972 Munich
More than the fate of Soviet
Jewry is involved here, important
as that is to us. The campaign
against all dissidents, the
outrages committed against
those who would protest the
oppression in the Soviet Union
should be every American's
concern. As Andrei Sakharov,
the courageous scientist has
written, accommodation with the
Soviet Union on matters of trade
and commerce without
demanding an easing of the
oppression against all those who
wish to exercise basic freedoms,
means the end of hope for those
brave people and, by 1984,
perhaps for us.

these Was no Myah OottBle Cross of Britain At Suez
London Chronicle
LONDON Last month, the
BBC repeated the accusation
made once before by Keith Kyle
that Anthony Eden and Selwyn
Lloyd were in fact "conned" by
Ben-Gurion and Dayan in the
execution of the Suez Campaign
of 1956.
The occasion for the repetition
of the charge that the Israelis had
double-crossed the British, their
supposed allies, in the
"collusion" over the invasion of
Egypt in October, 1956, was the
publication here of the personal
account by the then British For-
eign Secretary, Selwyn Lloyd, of
the events which led to the con-
clusion of the secret Sevres
agreement by Britain, France
and Israel (Suez 1956: A Per-
sonal Account).
IT IS sad that Selwyn Lloyd
did not live to witness the pub-
lication of his book, for there was
probably nothing in his contro-
versial life that became him
better than his own alas, post-
humous comments on it and
justification for it.
It is an important book, far
more so than most memoirs. It
not only puts the record straight
on the Anglo- French Israeli
operation against Egypt in 1956,
but it also lays the ghost of "col-
lusion" in a most effective and
straightforward manner.
In doing so, he manages merci-
lessly to maul his former "junior"
who emerged after the event as
the foremost critic and martyr of
Eden's Suez policy, Anthony
IN ALMOST casual asides.
Lloyd recalls that Nutting had, in
fact, been one of the first to be
involved in the plans with the
French, that Nutting had assured
Eden that he favored a policy of
force, if necessary, against
Nasser and that Nutting had
repeatedly warned Selwyn Lloyd
'' not to trust Nasser.
Selwyn Lloyd also drops an
obvious hint that it was actually
Nutting who had promised
Nasser that Britain would not
encourage other Arab States to
join the Baghdad Pact; a promise
which subsequently Nasser and
Heikal claimed had been made by
Lloyd and broken by the British

Norman Garbo. The Artist. New York: W.W. Norton, 477 p., $10.98.
NORMAN GARBO. an artist in his own right, has written the
stirring novel of Duvid Karlinsky, the first great Jewish-American
painter. Duvid lives through the most exciting and violent episodes of
the twentieth century. And he is there experiencing each and every
He comes to America as a result of a bloody Cossack raid on his
village in Czarist Russia in which he saw his entire world destroyed.
Following the turbulent journey to America in the hold of an im-
migrant ship, he quickly adapts to the teeming life of New York's
Lower East Side in the early 1900s.
DUVID LEARNS to live amidst the juxtaposition of a warm
family life and the cold, violent world of protection money, collectors
and making a living.
Karlinsky's sexual experiences encompass a great deal of the
story, but they are not lewd or extravagant. His affairs of the heart
and body are essential to the fabric of the story, and Garbo deals with
them tastefully.
IN FLASHBACKS from the story of his final, radiant love affair,
the reader follows Duvid's struggle for acceptance as a painter in New
York, where a Jewish artist who painted what he was in the ghetto
was not given space in fashionable galleries including Jewish
galleries (what few there were). His first showing was in a Greenwich
Village brothel.
It is Duvid s ability to paint his subjects with incredible emotion
that finally attracts the attention of the critics, and which keeps the
reader spellbound. Garbo's description of Duvid's work is as intense
as the work itself:
"For this was what it had finally come to be, a life-size male nude
painted almost entirely in tones of blue. The blue had nothing to do
with the clear azure of summer skies or sunlit water, but was soiled
and dirty and carried the stain of midnight swamps, of pestilence and
rot, of frozen flesh in winter tombs. This was the blue. And a stench
seemed to come off it, a scent like that some dark malignancy would
carry, were it to invent its own perfume."
DUVID BECOMES a reformer against his own will. This drive,
of which he is at first unaware, took him to the brink of death over and
over: he drew newspaper sketches for the Premier Waist Company fire
story, having climbed into the building to see the charred flesh; he
painted the human remnants of World War I, having spent four years
in Europe seeing the carnage. He was drawn to the Sacco and Vanzetti
case and incurred violence to his family for painting the pair and
supporting their cause.
As if little more would fit into such a portfolio of violence and
suffering, Karlinsky also saw the concentration victims of World War
II; and, as in World War I, he killed the enemy to save bis own life.
GARBO DOES not leave violence in Duvid's past. The current
story his love affair with a golden girl develops into a frightening
confrontation within anti-Semitic, woman-brutalizer which has a
shattering climax reminiscent of James Dickey's Deliverance.
The Artist is an exciting change from some of the recent sen-
timental, saga-is h novels involving Jewish characters. Duvid is a
proud Jew who physically and emotionally parries the blows well.
Perhaps his experiences are a bit overwhelming, and the novel is
overloaded. However, The Artist is a fast-paced, extraordinarily well-
developed story which keeps the reader breathlessly speeding to the
unexpected conclusion.
Lloyd record, and that of Moshe
Dayan in his Story of My Life,
the BBC can still claim that there
was an Israeli "double-cross" of
the British, or that the Sevres
agreement was anything but per-
missible, given all the circum-
stances related by Lloyd and
Dayan, would be puzzling if one
did not know the makeup and the
outlook of those responsible for
this non-existent Suez mystery.
was that the Israelis did not go
far enough and did not commit a
large enough force to meet the
requirements for Anglo-French
intervention; that Dayan
switched plans and stopped the
Israelis short of the Canal and so
deprived the British of the
pretext they wanted to intervene.
Some years ago, the then
fashionable Suez critic, Erskine
Childers, had accused the Israelis
of having done the opposite,
letting down the British by
jumping the gun and then
waiting to let the British open the
road to Suez.
What is so remarkable about
the Selwyn Lloyd book,
especially to those who remember
him just before and during the
Suez crisis, is that he has taken
the trouble to read and consider
all aspects of the crisis.
HE HAS read the Israeli, the
French and the American ver-
sions and critics, and he has had
access to confidential Cabinet
and Foreign Office papers not yet
accessible to others.
He meets his critics head-on
and makes out as good a case for
British participation as Dayan
did for the Israelis.
He is very loyal to Eden, but
he admits that there was ample
justification for Israeli suspicion
of British attitudes and of
American policy.
HIS ACCOUNT underlines
Dayan's argument that "if the
British or French needed a
pretext for military measures
against Egypt. Israel certainly
did not."
But Lloyd goes beyond that.
He shows fairly conclusively that
there was no need for either
French or British pretext. They
had an overwhelming case
against Nasser.
His judgment of Mahmoud
Fawzi, Nasser's Foreign
Minister, and the "moderate"
hero of the Suez critics, was that
he was a slippery customer and
could be no more trusted than
could Nasser; and he quotes the
weighty supporting opinions of
Hammarskjold and Dulles.
Lloyd demolishes, in fact, the
"double-cross" theory. The
Israelis carried out their oper-
ation in the manner they had
undertaken and had expected to
do. They had also avoided the
trap which Ben-Gurion suspected
the British might have set for
them: it was he who ordered
Dayan to make sure that there
was no excuse for any British
attack on Israeli troops or
BEN-GURION had heard from
more than one source that it was
the intention of the British com-
mand to attack Egyptian and
Israeli positions on the Canal at
the same time. He therefore made
sure that there were no Israeli
positions which could be mis-
taken to be within the ten-mile
It was not this that upset the
British plan. What went wrong
for the British was that they had
no clear objective other than
Eden's vague concept of inter-
nationalizing the Canal. But all
British thinking at the time (and
some still survives) was vitiated
by the fear of Israeli con-
Selwyn Lloyd writes frankly
about it and makes honorable
amends. Moreover, he did not lie
to the House of Commons, as the
BBC programs have asserted,
when he said on Oct. 31. 1966,
M :
Ben-Gurion and Dayan visiting Israeli troops during the Sin
that it was quite wrong to assert
"that Israel was incited to this
action by HMG. There was no
prior agreement between us
about it.
"THERE WAS no incitement
of Israel. At the Sevres talks,
Ben-Gurion had insisted
throughout that Israel would not

West Bank) and Syria.

the hitherto customary repris
did not hurt Nasser and did u,
halt the attacks. A different wjL
had to be found to strike at I
Egypt's military power in Siniil
in a manner that would diu
be associated with Anglo-French
war aims; she had limited and
precise aims in destroying the
fedayeen bases in Sinai and
ensuring free passage for ship-
ping to Eilat."
Not only did Israel have no
part or association with the
Anglo-French operation, but the
British officer commanding the
operation on Cyprus warned that
he would have any Israeli liaison
officer who showed up on the
island shot on sight.
We can say that, as we close
Selwyn Lloyd's account, that we
now really know the Suez story.
He provides official confirmation
of much that was assumed, and
he presents insights into the
attitudes of Dulles and Hammar-
skjold and of men like
Anthony Nutting which ought
to give troubled thought to the
program planners of the BBC
and to the makers of the new
Suez myths who have had such a
long and altogether unjustified
innings in the light of the author-
itative evidence available.
BEN-GURION spoke to me
about the Nasser problem some
six months before Suez, on May
3, 1956. It was a private talk at
the end of a day when he had
taken his decision. He had con-
cluded that Nasser would not
himself confront Israel in a direct
challenge of war. He would,
however, intensify the border war
courage Nasser and deter Jon
and Syria.
But he was deeply bothered I

World Reacts Angrily to Trials
Soviets a 'Cowardly Regime-Meany
Soviet court in Kaluga sentenced
Jewish dissident Alexander
Ginzburg to eight years in a labor
camp of the "special regime"
type, the toughest of four
regimes in Soviet labor camps, on
charges of anti-Soviet
propaganda and circulating
subversive literature.
In Moscow dissident Anatoly

Ginzburg were members of the
dissident group monitoring
Soviet compliance with the
human rights provisions of the
Helsinki Final Act.
A member of the Lithuanian
section of the monitoring group,
Viktoras Petkus, was sentenced
in Vilnius, Lithuania, to three
years in prison and seven years in
a labor camp, it was reported
from Moscow.
The reverberations of the
Sharansky and Ginzburg trials
continued around the world. In
Washington. AFL-CIO president
George Meany called the
proceedings an outrage" and "a
sobering reminder of the
inhumanity and brutality and
the fundamental weakness of
the Soviet system.
He called on the U.S. to
respond by "at the very least"
postponing the SALT talks.
IN A statement to the press,
Meany said, "Only a cowardly
regime which fears truth would
bring the weight of the whole
state down on two individuals for
simply seeking to exercise the
most elementary human rights."
He stated that "these trials
make a shambles of the Helsinki
accords, thus posing a grave
challenge to President Carter's
human rights campaign, to the
whole range of U.S.-Soviet
relations and to the overall
conduct of U.S. foreign policy."
Meany said that "as far as the
AFL-CIO is concerned, the
human rights provisions of the
Final Act are the heart and soul
of the Helsinki agreements ....
If the accord cannot be enforced,
then it should be abrogated."
He insisted that "there must
be a direct link between the trials
and the SALT talks." Meany
said he disagreed with Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance on this.

Through its subsidiary
Hapoalim International N.V.,
this is the largest issue ever
placed by an Israeli bank on the
international financial market,
and follows the success of an
issue of last September, which
raised $30 million.
THE NEWLY issued notes
bear a floating interest rate of
one-quarter percent above the
London Interbank offer rate, but
not less than six and one-half
percent, fixed and paid every six
months. Notes on a floating rate
basis are issued by major
banking and financial in-
stitutions for a 5-year period, and
are fully guaranteed by Bank
Hapoalim. Management and
underwriting of the issue is being
handled by four major European
Earlier last week, Bank
Hapoalim completed an issue of
shares, options and deferred 18
percent capital notes to the
general public in Israel at a total
selling price of IL 800 million
(Israeli pounds). The new issue,
the volume of which reached IL 7
billion, brings the bank's capital
resources, including capital
notes, to over IL 3.3 billion.
Bank Hapoalim's balance
sheet has increased 65-fold in the
last nine years, with consolidated
assets reaching $8 billion at the
end of 1977.
ON JULY 1, Bank Hapoalim

the holding and profession of
ideas cannot be the subject of
judicial proceedings." The
statement added that the
frequency of such trials in the
USSR raised suspicion that they
are intended to curb activities
over which there may be
disagreement but which,
nonetheless, are legitimate in a
democratic system.
In Melbourne, Australia's
Minister for Foreign Affairs
Andrew Peacock expressed
"serious concern" over the trials
and appealed to the Soviet
leadership to show greater
sensitivity to the need to
guarantee human rights.
Describing Sharansky and
Ginzburg as leading campaigners
for human rights, Peacock said:
"Such an extended campaign
against courageous men of good
will, despite firm appeals from
many Western countries, casts
doubts on the USSR's professed
intention to honor its in-
ternational obligations to im-
prove human rights."
Grasso of Connecticut (-tilled the
trials "a mockery of th> concept
of freedom of speech and the
basic ideal of justice."
Only hours before the sentence
of Ginzburg was announced, the
Connecticut Committee of
Elected Officials of Concern for
Soviet Jewry reported that they
had cabled Soviet President
Leonid Brezhnev to "use your
good office to ensure that
Anatoly Sharansky and
Alexander Ginzburg are given
every opportunity to respond to
the charges made and that these
proceedings will not be used for
political purposes.''

Brickner of the UAHC was ready
a year or so ago to dissolve
Reform Judaism's National
Interfaith Commission as a
meaningless relic of antiquity.
THE LOCAL scene mimics the
national scene. Rabbis have been
presidents of the Ministerial
Fellowship, developing a few
warm friendships with Christian
colleagues. But the Ministerial
. Fellowship is now at its lowest
I ebb of activity, almost on the
verge of dissolution. Now and
then community dialogues ap-
pear. Once in a while a friendly
pulpit sermon is pronounced.
Recently, there was even
public issuance of Church Holo-
caust sensitivity. Occasionally
the Federation itself bursts forth,
on national command, with ef-
forts to elicit Christian support
for Israel. But none of this means
that interfaith harmony is a com-
munity reality or prime concern.
The truth is that religion and
religious leaders and religious
institutions have all become self-
centered and self-concerned.
They work almost totally within
their own ranks toward their own
ends, and they are too busy to
reach far beyond. And that is
putting the matter benevolently.
SOMETIMES the bitter truth
is that religious groups simply do
not care one whit for each other.
How interesting that President
Carter's evangelist sister, just a
few weeks ago, canceled her own
appearance before the Baptist -
sponsored meeting of a Jewish
Conversionist group. She felt it
inappropriate, for all her evan-
gelical zeal, to be a part of a
meeting that would be offensive
to Jews, or that might tend to
imply that Judaism was some-
thing less than a completely valid
and legitimate faith on its own.
When notice of the very same
sort of meeting appeared in the
Palm Beach newspapers last
winter. I wrote the following
letter to the distinguished
Baptist minister of our town,
whose church, the First Baptist
Church, was listed as co-sponsor.
I rather thought he too might be
interested in our feelings. I rather
thought he too might care about
interfaith relations. I rather
thought we might have made
some forward progress in under-
standing and sensitivity, through
j the last decades. This is what I
"Dear Rev. Walker: I wish we
had already met one another so
that I might be writing now with
the same feeling of established
friendship that was my privilege

SURELY it is my own fault,
for not having reached out in
welcome much sooner. Allow me
to do so now and to express the
wishes of myself and con-
gregation for the joy of your new
ministry for many years to come.
The relationship between First
Baptist Church and the Jewish
community, it seems to me. has
been one of mutual respect and
appreciation, quite ecumenical in
spirit. We have shared in a mul-
titude of endeavors, and in inter-
faith dialogue, and in the
progress of your college so close
at hand.
Among other things, it was my
pleasure to present a library shelf
in Judaica, through the former
pastor, to Palm Beach Atlantic
College. And all of this has
allowed me to feel that we are
partners and brothers in a com-
munity of faith and
ders tending.
of course, a Jewish respect for
Christianity and even for its
evangelical expressions. But all
the same, throughout much of
America there has grown in
recent years a new sense of
mutual respect and recognition,
that manifests itself in a lessen-
ing emphasis upon Protestant
and Catholic insistence on public
efforts to convert the Jews.
Judaism and Christianity have
come to be recognized as equally
valid and acceptable faiths for
their own followers, and we have
turned to dialogue and fellowship
instead of unsought-for
One of the greatest benefits of
a decade of ecumenism, it seems
to me. has been the heightening
of sensitivity toward one another
which previous misunder-
standings oftimes fostered. The
meaning of this new sensitivity I
believe is a deepened desire to
reduce offense and hurt. If one
cannot know what hurts me. how
can he say he loves me'.

Nobody Optimistic About London
QUESTION: Why is it that
Jews do not have missionary
ANSWER: Generally
loeeking, rabbinic tradition
tsists that one who converts to
Judaism must do so only with
[bsolute conviction based solely
Ipon his own volition without
Iny feeling of compulsion or
llterior motive.
The first question asked of a
andidate for conversion is "Why
re you converting?" (i.e., for
lhat reason?) If anything, an
Ittempt is made to dissuade the
andidate from converting, by
pointing out the hardships and
Jntagonism suffered by Jews
lYebamot 77a).
DURING many periods in
lewish history conversions were
ardly performed at all. At
ertain times hostile govern-
jents under which Jews lived
ictually forbade them from
converting non-Jews to the
lewish faith. At other times, the
Tabbis suspected some converts
|f becoming informers and
*rhaps tor having converted in
fie first place in order to be able
inform against the Jewish
i It is also mentioned in the
iibbinic literature that in some
laces converts embarrassed the
listing Jewish population by
Idhering to the practices and
[rmciples of the Jewish faith
lith more fervor and loyalty than
latural-born Jews.
There is no question that
onverts are accepted into the
lewish community today, but
Inly after it has been ascertained
hat they are voluntarily willing
accept all the commandments
nd practices as well as the
Irohibitions of the Jewish faith.
TO CONDUCT any kind of
lissionary activity would cer-
tainly be against the
porementioned principle of
onversion. There are some who
oint to the rabbinic statement
hat the first Jew, Abraham, as
fell as his wife, Sarah, converted
on-Jews to the Jewish faith,
fowever. this was done on a
urely voluntary basis to people
[ho approached them.
What Abraham and Sarah did
lo was to try to discourage non-
lews from engaging in pagan
dolatry with all its ac-
ompanying evils, as practiced in
hose days, such as child
Bcrifice, holy prostitution, etc.
They were indeed not practicing
missionaries in any sense of the
What is the basis for the seven
days of mourning period in
Jewish tradition ?
The rabbis derive the practice
of observing a seven-day period
of mourning (called shivah) from
the passage in the Bible which
relates that Joseph mourned his
father Jacob for seven days (Gen.
They do add, however, that
originally the first day of
mourning was ordained by the
Bible. The Jerusalem Talmud
[Kethubot 1:1) indicates that the
seven-day period of mourning
was ordained by Moses. Another
source in the Talmud indicates
that when the Bible {Amos 8:10)
states that "feasts will turn into
mourning," the implication is
that just as feasts are usually
observed for seven days (e.g.
Passover, Sukkoth) mourning
periods will be of seven days
duration {Moed Katan.20a).
Why is it forbidden for a
mourner to work during the week
of the seven days of mourning?
This practice is traced back to
the parallelism between mour-
ning and feasting referred to in
Amos. Just as seven-day feasts
are days on which no work is per-
formed, likewise are the seven
days of mourning. Some explain
this prohibition by saying that
the tradition did not want to have
the mourner escape the reality of
the situation by running off to
work. This would mean that he
has not made it possible to adjust
to this reality which must sooner
or later be faced by all.
What is the basis for the 30-
dav mourning period
The rabbis decided this ob-
servance from several sources in
the Bible. One is the passage in
the Bible which indicates that the
people wept for Moses after his
passing for 30 days (Deut. 34:18).
Another is the text of the Bible
which requires the captive
maiden to lament for her parents
for 30 days (Deut. 34:18). The
restrictions from the end of the
seventh day to the 30th day are
less severe; but they still
manifest some sort of procedure
in which the mourner adjusts to
the fact of the loss even in a more
moderate fashion.

Weizman, Sadat Hedge Against Failure
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman
made a surprise trip to Salzburg
for talks July 13 with President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt and the
Egyptian War Minister,
Mohammed Ghani Gamassy. The
are several meeting points
between their plan and our plan,"
Dayan said.
He would not specify what
those "meeting points" were. He
said, however, that the Egyp-
tians are not ready for a separate
peace with Israel. "We asked and
the answer was no," he said.
Dayan said that until now the
trip was viewed here as a hedge
against the failure of this week's
foreign ministers' meeting in
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan implied as much when he
told a news conference, after
Weizman's departure, that the
Salzburg meeting was but one of
the channels of negotiations
between Israel and Egypt and he
fully supported it.
Dayan was in London July 18-
19 for talks with the Egyptian
Foreign Minister, Mohammed
Kaamel and U.S. Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance on ways to
resume the Israeli-Egyptian
peace process.
Neither country has displayed
much optimism over the outcome
of the London meeting, and both
were eager to open new channels
of contact should failure in
London threaten to end the peace
process, observers here said.
Weizman arrived in Salzburg
in an Israel Air Force plane July
13 accompanied by aides and
went directly to the lakeside hotel
where Sadat has been
vacationing. Officials in Salzburg
said Gamassy greeted Weizman
at the hotel and that Foreign
Minister Kaamel joined them.
THE ISRAELI defense chief
told reporters he had "nothing to
declare .... Let me see the
President (Sadat) first." Asked
how long he would be in Austria,
he said his plans were "very
flexible. Maybe I'll stay, maybe
I'll go."
Dayan said that the Salzburg
meeting would not interfere with
his mission to London. He said
there was nothing wrong in
holding negotiations through
various channels as long as they
are conducted by a government
which exercises a unified policy.
He said the talks in Salzburg
could only be helpful in preparing
for the London meeting.
reporters when he remarked that
the Egyptian peace plan, which
the Israeli Cabinet categorically
rejected, was not totally at
variance with Israel's peace plan
rejected by Egypt. "If I read the
Egyptian plan correctly, there
Egyptians conditioned the
resumption of negotiations on
changes in Israel's position.
"Well, we have not changed our
minds and yet there is the
London meeting," he said.
"OF COURSE, some new
proposals might come up in
London and the government may
review them and change its
position, but not as an Egyptian
pre-condition." Dayan said the
London meeting would deal with
the Israeli and Egyptian plans,
and how and where to resume
negotiations. He noted that
Sadat recently suggested the
town of El Arish in northern
Sinai as the site of further talks.
But it is to early to say, Dayan
Although there was no official
disclosure, the available in-
formation indicated that
Weizman acted on his own
initiative in setting up the
Salzburg meeting with Sadat and
Gamassy and consulted with

meeting between Sadat and

Weizman sent a note to
Gamassy, with whom he has had
cordial relations, suggesting that
they renew their personal con-
tacts before the London meeting.
One source said Weizman did
not mention the London meeting
but suggested a meeting with
Gamassy at the earliest possible
time. Gamassy's reply was sent

Israeli military mission in

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And he took Joshua before Eleazar and the
congregation. And he laid his hands upon him" (Num.
PHINEHAS "And the Lord spoke unto Moses,
saying: 'Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the
Priest, hath turned My wrath away from the children of
Israel, in that he was very jealous for My sake among
them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in My
Jealousy. Wherefore say: Behold, I give unto him My
covenant of peace; and it shall be unto him, and to his seed
after him, the covenant of an everlasting priesthood' '
(Numbers 25.10-13). The children of Israel were com-
manded to do battle with the Midianites. Moses was
instructed to give the daughters of Zelophehad the
inheritance of their father, who had died without sons.
Moses ordained Joshua as his successor. The portion
concludes with a description of the observance of the
various holy days.
