Omahan Plans Big 'Day' By RICHARD PIARL OMAHA - "Then Mem* a growing awarenesa since the 1973 war (Yom Kippur War) of Israel being isolated, not only by the worid's natioiu, but also by Amertcam Jews. You don't see as many Jewish tourists going to Israel, not as many people contribirting to Israel. The relatloaship between American Jews and Israeli Jews seems to be cooling." Speaking is one Michael Oren, S2, a customer engineer for International Business Machines Corp. and an Israeli who has lived in Omaha seven years. He and his wile Miriam, also an Israeli, l\^ve worked with the Jewish Community Center's Jewish Cultural Council to present this year's Israel Independence Day program on Wednesday night, 7:30 at the JCC-one which is apparently one of the most ambitious ever planned here. "Up to the'73 War. we didn't need evenings (Israel Independence Day programs) like that," says the 5-foot-6, bespectacled Oren. "People Just naturally were pro-Israel,

The music is provided by the city, decorations are provided by the city and the foUowtng day they have big parades. . ."But obviously he feels more than Just warm memories. "1 fed there should be a real partnership between American and Israel Jewry. American Jews say, 'We can survive without Israel, we have six million here,' l>ut is that really the answer? This (Independence Day program) Is one way we can show that we are part of the Jews in Israel—if not by being there, then by moral support." With due respect to those hard workers who provided Yom Ha'atzmaut programs in years past. Oren "had to shoot for something as big as 1 could, because if you provide

the same thing u before, you flop becauae ptople see it's nothing dUferent." What he's come up with, then, is a program offering Israeli war music played by the Jewish members of the Omaha Symphony and songs and skits by costumed Omaha teenagers. There will be an Israeli speaker, Yaacov Morris, thanks to the Jewish Philanthropies Campaign. The Center lobby will be brightly decorated with posters and banners ("Israel on My Mind" is the theme) and after the show there will be Israeli food-fdafM (as popular there as hamburgers are in the US ). pitta, hunuia, tahlaa and Israeli salad, plus Israeli winetasting.

Relations Discussed


JERUSALEM (JTA) - President Ford was expected to adopt a carefully even-iuuided tone in his "State of Uie World" message to Congress when he reviews the breakdown of America's peace tallu attempt here. This was the hope and expectation of top Americjui Jewish leaders and also of high Israeli government officials. Premier Yitzhak Rabin, Defense Minister Shimon Peres, and Jewish Agency leaders Pinhas Sapir, Leon Dulzin and Mosbe Rivlin, ntet herewith Max Ftsher of [>etrott, cbalmMn of the Jewish Agency Board of Governors, Frank Lautenberg, United Jewish Appeal general chairman, and other U.S. Jewish leaders on the current cooling of relations with Washington. Sen. Jacob K. JavlU (R. NY) flew into Israel

Javlta came from Teheran at his own request. He has apparently undertaken to do his utmost to heal the rift—and hopes to be seeing Ford and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger soon after his return. Fisher also hoped to See Ford before he delivers his "SUte of the World" address. Well-placed sources here said Javlts recommended to Israeli leaders that they try to steer the dialogue with the US away from the recriminations of the past failure and towards plotting a Joint course in preparation for a resumption of Geneva.


Who's Intransigent Now? TnmXtmlumnemMmmOmMUm

There has been a lot of talk about intransigence in the Middle East. Name-calling never solved any problems. Before the American people draw vital conclusions as to who is to blame for the impasse, and where additional U.S. pressure, political or economic, might be applied, it would be well to look at the facts of the recent Kissinger mission. As the U.S. Secretary of State shuttled back and forth between Cairo and Jenisalem in an effort to achieve a compromise agreement between Israel and Egypt, the following facts emerged: Prior to the mteloo, all paittet—Imd, Egypt, the U,S.—bad a basic underatandlng that eventual agreement would be bated on a quid pro quo arrangement—Israeli withdrawal from territory in return far Egyptian political OQooenkNis; Baaed oo thii amunption, Israel oOered to reUnquiri) the Bfltk aod G)tU paafei, ler 9tn potato tpttie 8taiai» as weilW the Abu Rodels'(« fields wUdi iu|)piy Israel wltl|4teat luV its-oil. In retum.'lt asfenlibat Egypt agrtfe to a ' statemdht of nea-t>elllgerence-an agreement to end the state of war between the two ooiBitrles. Egypt refused. After a considerable period of negotiation, when Israel realixed that the non-beUigerency statement oouM not be obtained it cane up with still another proposal. If Egypt would adopt some elements on noihbelligerenoe, Israel would withdraw from half the MiUa and Gidi passes, and also return the administration of the Abu Rodeis oil fields to Egypt. Among the elements asiud for were an end to the boycott impoaed on certain American companies doing business with Itrad; an end to Egypt's anti-Israei propaganda campaign; access to navigatioa through the Sues cand for cargoes destined for Israel; and disavowal by Egypt of terrorist methods. Egypt refused. In short, Israel made a variety of proposals for return' of territory to Egypt in return for Egypt's ; willingness to agree to peaceful—or relatively peaceful— • coexistence. In making its refusals, Egypt stated that it ' required total Israel withdrawal from the passes, and substantial Israeli withdrawal from both the northern and southern parts of the Sinai peninsula, including the Abu Rodeis oil fields In the south For all of this, Egypt : stUI refused to make any binding commitment to peace. '•• Throughout the negotiations, Egypt insisted that Israel turn over militarily strategic territory at the same . time that Egypt refused to rule out the possibility of war. IA paradox. I Israel was willing to compromise. Egypt was not. I What is the definition of intransigence?

The signatories make It clear they do not advocate terrorist acts against civilians. Israel should strike against control centers, against the terrorist leaders, and against ail who give them aid and encouragement. We should avoid Indiacrlmlnate violence against innocent people, but we should demonstrate, forcefully, that the fire they are playing with can bum them as well. Above all. thoie who endorse and sponsor terrorism should be made to feel a tense of the very insecurity which they seek to fbster. They should live In fear of the unexpected, until they elect to abandon animal savagery. the twelve indignant citizens include Yohal BinNun, former commander of the Israel Navy, Professor Ezra Zohar, of the Sheba Medical Center, Shoshana Horev, wife of the general who today heads the Technkm, Nehama Yartv, wife of the former head of Military Intelliteoce and until recently

Minister of Information, Aryeh MarlnskI, a distinguished lawyer, a publicist, a farmer and others. They nuke it clear they have DO political ambitions. NetdMr do they have soy bitentloa of fostering a vigilante gnxy or embaiUog on military adventures. They •imply want to voice an oplniaa In the hope that many odier IvaeUs share the tame views and wOl bdplnfhNnoe the Oovemroent to adopt poUdes tia^ the line they advocate. All indications are that Israeli patience is running low. Israelis are tired of sitting as targets for terrorists. There is no self-respecting nation hi the world that would contUnie to endure an unceasing series of wild, criminal acts launched from the other side of Its borders and the world should not expect Israel to sit with folded hands. If It Is necessary to mount a Civil Guard tai Tel Aviv, then It may become doubly rteceesary lOr the Arabs to look to their own defenses at home.


"There are some who sSe Israel as another Korea or Vietnam—'it's Just another place, why worry about It?' I wasn't here, but wasn't there a feeling of pride In us after the '76 War? That's what we need again, a feeling of pride in our people."

Such was the complete text of an advertisement in the Israel press shortly after the Savoy Hotel raid. It was signed by a doxen distin^iisbed citlxens, and represented a spontaneous reaction which Is shared by an Increasing number of the general population. In interviews thereafter some of the signatories explained what Ihey meant. The occasional retaliatory raid after a particularly senseless atrocity is not sufficient. Such raids are only a reflex actkm. Instead there should be a clearly defined, promptly executed policy which declares, in effect: If they Insist upon-war, then we shall fight the war, openly and hard, unUI they dsslst. We should not sit oowering and timorous, waiting for the next attack. Israel's present policy invites more attack, because we seem to have been forced back on tbe defensive. we wit io Mw a chijlsiii

Koselind Kabinowilz, chairman of the campaign, noted that the goal Is an artificial device designed to spur campaign workers.

American Jewry Is in a position to alleviate some of the problems created by these conditions by providing for some of the humanitarian needs of the State. In addltkHi, Mrs. Rabinowitz remarked upon the pressing needs of world Jewry — particularly the Soviet Jevn and tbe Jews of Syria and other Arab nations — who desperately need assistance. "We should all be thankful," she observed, "that our grandparents or great-grandparents had the good fortune to be assisted in their hour of need by some generous Americans who made It possible (or them to come to this country. We must now return the favor to thoie who are less fortunate than we." Mrs. RabinowiU explained that abolition of

Mrs. Rabinowitz concluded by remarking on the uniqueness of the Des Moines Jewish community. "We are most fortunate to live among people who do not have to t>e cajoled or coerced Into giving. We have demonstrated our generosity in the past. I have complete confidence In our ability to exceed all expectations by going all out to support those who need our help ^ . "This Is a critical time In our history. Our people are under attack all over tlie world. We are isolated as we have not been since the Holocaust. We know now - If we ever doubted H — that Jewry wUI equal or transcend w|iat they have done in the past. "My husband's grandfather, Rabbi Zeichik, used to quote a Talmudic saying-that he who saves a single Jewish soul has made God's creatkm worthwhile. We have been given the privilege of saving not one, but many Jewish souls. The task has certainly made our own lives worthwhile."
