Popular Authors Assailed During Jewish Family Meeting MT. FREEDOM, N'J. - A noted author ascribed many of the problems besetting today's Jewish family to the works of Jewish fiction writers "who are either ignorant of Jewish life, filled with shame or even selfhatred, or write out of sheer malice." Author Charles Angoff, professor of literature at Falrleigh Dickinson University, made these remarks as Jewish social scientists, educators and religious leaders — men and women — dealt here recently with Uie problems Jewish families today face. The group attempted to come up with some answers "towards strengthening the family as a major factor in ensuring the continuity of Jewish values."

The United States: An Arab Accomplice?

Edttor't Note: The following Icrtlcle ii a wmmary of tlie •J«r polnU from "Tbe United SUtM A Israel - TUt b) the Middle East?", an analydf of tbe subtly >. changing U.S. role In the East ilnce October 11173, written by Theodore [Draper for the April '75 Issue it Commentary. It U I that Interested ^leaders obtain a copy of thU Informative document as no pr«cls can fully enumerate all ofttaefacUpraieoted.

Summary By Rose Hoffman A "dramatic change" tn U.S. policy in Ihe Middle East took place during the Yom Klppur War In October of 1»73 The full story behind the events of that time were not Immediately known, but gradually emerged. When the truth was eventually pieced together through statements made by former Prime Minister Golda Meir. David Elazar, the Israeli Chief of Staff, and tbe most revealing comments by former Defense Minister, Mosbe Dayan, Ihe 'American ultimatum" was discovered. The Israelis, after 10 days of heavy resistance, had managed to send a small force of troops across the Suez Canal. From this crucial breakthrough, Ihe Israelis proceeded to complete the

encirclement of the Egyptian Army III Corps — an estimated 20.O0(HO,O0O men The Egyptians were close to surrender and, had not the diplomatic shuffling of the big powers prevented the full realization of that "victory", said Moshe Dayan, Israel would have achieved considerable gains in bargaining power and in altering the Egyptian attitude under the Sadat regime On Ihe diplomatic front, the Soviet Union, sensing the critical nature of the Egyptian position, called for an immediate cease-fire. U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was summoned to Moscow. The result was a^ hasty cease-fire resolution rammed through the U.N. Security Council. During Klailnger's mitslaa in MoMow, President Nixon was occupied with preiilng "domestic" matters and gave Kissinger tbe "power of attorney". lUs is tbe power wliich, in submiarioii to Soviet demands, forced Israel — under threat of conflict with the U.S. should she not comply — to permit a relief oonvoy.to read! tlie trapped Egyptians, thus denying Israel Uie (niits of victory and at tbe same time letting tbe first oftkdal precedent for a new U.S. policy in dealing with tbe Arab-Iaraell coofUct.

This change in practice was a goal the Nixon administration had been trying to achieye for years — namely the "even-handedness" which allowed Henry Kissinger to appear as a "savior of both sides." The underlying motivations are now obvious. Kissinger's actions were evidence that American Interests went "deeper" than the immediate hostilities of October. 1973 The Kissinger-Breshnev deal represented a direct intervention by the major powers with the Soviets imposing on the Americans and the Americans under Henry Kissinger pressuring Israel. To provide a clearer understanding of the implications of this shift in American policy, Theodore Draper traces the history of previous American foreign policy in the Near East. He notes the changes that differentiate the Nasser administration from Sadat's rule and Ihe subtle and yet powerful influence the present leadership has had on the Mideast situation. Whereas Nasser worried about U.S. Intervention and counted on the USSR, to neutralize American Involvement, Sadat, taking a new approach, merely asked the U.S. to be "neutral" (Newsweek 1971). How harmless that sounded then In 1973, the twmhination of tbe October War, the Arab oil embargo, and the U.S.U.S.S.R. detente made America's "evenhandedness" policy applicable. The " Imposed setUenMnt" of tbe Yom Klppur War was exactly what Sadat wanted. America was right where Sadat needed ber — in tbe middle. Tbe United SUies oould make Israel do what no one eiae could, so Sadat's regucat that the U.S. remain "neutral" was highly beneficial to tbe Arab position. U.S. intervention In October

'73 saved Sadat from disaster and coat Israel a decisive victory. In February of 1975, Sadat demanded that Israel relinquish occupied territory and then, perhaps, a peace agreement could be reached. When questioned recently as to the "specifics" of such an agreement, Sadat answered that the final solution must wait for Geneva. No doubt, surmises Draper, the Jerusalem question and the PLO—ruled State would be problems a peace conference would be unable to solve. With twth sides giving up in exasperation, everything would be as It was before except that Israel, without the occupied territories, would have absolutely no bargaining power. Accepting the Arab terms for "peace" now would mean sacrificing all that has been gained lor nothing in return. Because of the Arabs' seemingly irreconcilable hardline, the U.S. approach, that of "playing both sides of the coin," has led to a revival of the "guarantee" concept. When Senator William Fulbrlght and several others called for a multilateral guarantee by the U.N. and a bilateral promise between the United States and Israel In 1970, bis proposals never got off the ground. Then, suddenly, following the war in October of 1973, Secretary Kissinger began to talk seriously of guarantees. "Guarantees," Kissinger said, "should compensate Israel for what she cannot get from Ihe Arabs and protect Israel from a serious state of insecurity." If, as Sadat says, he has nothing to give, Israel's support must come from American guarantees, Kissinger advocated, guarantees based on SovietAmerican rapport, guarantees that must be effective and automatic - an impossibility

belligerence, and negotiations between the parties concerned. American guarantees, vehemently opposed by Israel, shift the responsibility away from the Arabs where It rightly belongs. By putting the United SUtea In the "middle". Secretary Kissinger has "dangerously disturbed" the delicate balance which has in the past governed our relations In tbe Middle East. . In summation. Draper concludes that some things have governed Israel's existence from the outset. Only Israel can defend herself. "There can be no peace by proxy." Arabs and Israelis must deal with each other. "Peace is not a piece of paper. Peace in the Middle East will become effective." Draper says, "only when It concerns ways of making a start at living together socially, economically, and intellectually."

Abortion-Mother's Right NEW YORK - That Judaism makes a distinction between a mother's right to abortion andlhe maintenance of the life of a viable fetus was the consensus of rabbinical and Thedlcal speakers at the recent Conservative Conference on at)ortion and fetal research at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Sponsored jointly by the Committee on Bio-Medical Ethics of the Rabbinical Assembly and the Jewish Theological Seminary, there was general agreement that the mother had the right to abortion, but it was generally felt that the fetus outside of the womb had a right to life if viable. There was thus considerable doubt that Dr. Kenneth C. Ediln of Boston was morally right in not taking steps to insure the life of the fetus he removed by abortion. Speakers Included Rabbi David Feidman of New York, author of "Birth Control and Jewish Law"; Dr. Harold M. Nitowsky, professor of pediatrics and genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and director of its Rose F. Kennedy Genetics Center Counseling Clinic; and Professor Seymour Siegel of the Jewish Theological Seminary, chairman of the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards of the Rabbinical Assembly. Rabbi Feidman Introduced a novel distinction, that between the right to life and tbe right to be bom. The right to

life be called "at>solute, while tlie right to be bom Is relative to the life of the mother. The fetus not yet Iwm, though It is sacred and Inviolate, Is still potential rather than actual human life; as such under special conditions its right to be bom can t>e secondary to the mother's existing rights." On the other hand. Rabbi Feidman pointed out "this very principle means that once the fetus is alive, outside the womb, its claim to life is absolute and the physician, such as may have been the case with Dr. Ekllin in Boston, would have to preserve that life." Rabbi Siegel said that ''Research and experimentation on fetuses ought to be limited to procedures which present no harm or which have as their aim the enhancement of the life-systems of the subjects." It was Rabbi Siegel's view that though Jewish law sanctioned abortion under certain circumstances, "this did not mean that a live fetus can be treated as if it were a mere piece of tissue. Because the fetus is endowed with potential life, it has a right to our bias for life", he said. "This did not mean that all experiments on fetuses are morally prohibited," Rabbi. Siegel continued. "If the experiment is meant to enhance the life of the mother; if It does not have any discernible harm on the fetus, then It could certainly be carried out."

for the U.S., Draper believes, 'since the stationing of U.S. troops In the Middle East clearly smacks of Vietnam. A U.S. guarantee would be just another "illusory band-aid." "No power can substltue lor Israeli power," says Draper. "The U.S. cannot Impose iU terms, whatever they are, equally on Israelis and Arabs. An Imposed settlement Is, In practice, a settlement Imposed on Israel. It implies that the Arabs will give as much or as little as they want to give, that the United States will in some manner pay off for them, and Israel will gel whatever the U.S. and Arabs together choose to give." An "imposed agreement" such as the one in October of 1973 represents a "tilt of policy." According to previous U.N. resolutions 242 and 338, any Israeli withdrawals are to be accompanied by "insubstantial" or "minor" boundary changes, non-

This setting, simple and unassuming, is the heartbeat of the Oes Moines Jewish community. At the helm is Federation Executive Director Dr Gerald Ferman. a man whose working days are rilled with a spontaneous flurry of activity. One minute he is charting the results of a budget hearings decision, the next minute he is arranging for the vtalt of Israeli Boy Scouts, and the following moment he is leiMdldtng a meeting and eoonilnatlng materials for the Center for Jewish Life Planning Committee or preparing for a staff conference. The whole of this is Interrupted by buzzes, rings. and knocks at his office door His head ii • milliaa plMCS at once and hlf work doM not end at S o'clock. Aa "academic habit," be calls It, but wtien he finally leaves the oCflce his briefcase U fuUy packed. Often cardboard bases loaded with materials MOompaQy him to the next MP 00 the agenda, an evening mMtlng or a late nigbt't work atbome.

The Ten Commandments By Rabbi Marshal Berg We read the Ten Commandments on Shavuot. All 613 Commandments of the Torah fall under these 10 principles. How does the Decalogue apply to us today, and how can we remember these 10 words? Tbe Midrash gives us several- nuiemonic aids. The first tablet contains those commandments that are "between man and God." On the second tablet are listed those which are "between man and man." Now, the First Commandment, "I am the Lord" faces the Sixth, "Thou shall not murder," or he who kills in cold blood destroys the image of God, and does not lake upon himself an obedience to the

Highest Authority "You shall not have any other gods" faces "Don't commit adultery." Other powers, strange values are like other mates. "Don't take His name in vane" faces "Don't steal," for the thief is not concerned about swearing falsely In His Name. "Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy" faces "Don't be a false witness," for a person

who does mA believe in a God who created a world and gave us a day of rest is telling false witness against Him. "Honor your parents" (aces "You shall not covet," because a person who does not respect parents will come to desire what doesn't belong to him and eventually disposaes his neighbor's property, not showing respect for his neighbor or anything that belongs to Mm.

JERUSALEM (JTA) - An inter-minlslerial committee of experts has recognized the Faladia* - the Black Jews of Etiriopia — as eligible for Israeli citizenship and other right under the "Law of Return." The committee, under chairmanship of Justice Ministry Director-General Zvl Terkip reached Its concluskm early in March, but It was only reported recently. The declskm was criticized by Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Sholom Goren who maintained the Jewishness of the raladuw ought to be a strictly halacUc Issue decided by

halachic experts only. The committee was reportedly guided on the halacha by Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who has for nuiny years maintained that the Falaahas are Jews under halacha.

Desalination Experts Due In Israel Soon JERUSALEM <JTA» - A team of American desalination experts are due in Israel to examine prospects (or erecting a sea-watersweetening plant at Aahdod. The team is being setit under Die terms ol the new economic agreement signed by U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon and ' Israel Finance Minister Yehushua Rablnowitz in Washington last Tuesday. The U.S. undertook in that accord to contribute $20 million to a desalination plant at Ashdod with Israeli government putting up an equivalent sum.

This Declaration clearly recognizes the judicial distinction between collective i national i and individual rights, promising "the establishment In Palestine of a natioiul home (or the Jewish people' and. at the same lime, guaranteeing "the civil and rtligiuus rights of existing nonJewish commiinities." Nowtiere in Ihe Balfour Declaration is the mention o( an Arab poptiiation only of "existing non-Jewish communities." Almost the whgle of historic Ertz Yisrael was included within the area allocated to the Jewish National Home under the Mandate entrusted to Bntain by the Ver sallies Peace Conference and the League o( Nations Under the terms of the Mandate. Palestine the Jewish National Home emcompassed ttie vast area of Trans Jordan, east of the Jordan river Only a short time, however, elapsed belore Britain unilaterally divided lis mandated territory, tiariding tl>e region east of the Jordan to the Emir Abdullah and leaving only Western Palestine at the truncated ".National Home " In this way a good lhree-<juarten> of the territory of Ertz Israel was wrested from the Jewish people by a political act that had no legal basis or Leagite of'Nations sanction. It ezplicily contravened the terms laid down by the Mandates Commissloa. Sad to say, the Ylsnuv o( lUI bad no power to resist Britain's Ulctal amputation of Trans-Jordan from Ihe area pledged to the Jetvlah people in the Balfour Declaration.

It Is not surprising, therefore, that men like CYiaim Welzmann and Moshe Sharett, who were reluctaatly prepared Ip accept partition, came to view this as merely a sliort-term "solution" Better Jewish autonomy in some comer of Eretz Yisrael than further betrayal and erosion under the British Mandate But both Welzmann and Ben-Gurlon eventually sensed that even partition would not satisfy the Arabs and thai tlie territorial issue might remain alive for decades to come When the 20th iiionlst Congress decided in 1937 to accept Ihe Peel Commission's partition plan, while hoping for some more favourable modification,Ihe underlying assumption was that such a farreaching concession to Ihe Arabs would lead to peace and allow for an unobstructed development of the surviving "National Home " This was a vain hope The one desire of the Arabs then as now - was for a final and wholesale eradication of the Jewish presence in Eretz Yisrael, whether through an organized expulsion or a war of annihilation As (ar as the Arabs are concerned, there could - aod can be no "peace in return (or territories" The terrorism (Irst unleashed in the I92a's against Jewish civilians is the consistent Arab reply to whal Ihey see as the Jewish > and Israeli i weakness (or compromise and negotiation Neither the International community nor even tba e^aMMied Ar^ lUtes ever aeeorded recojiltlen to such a Ihtag at a "Paleathilan entity." nti was a wholly aborUve •ngiallni roUowIng the IMM* War of Independence, Israel's TrantJordaoiaD ndgbbour hastwwid to Incoipurale Judea and Samaria imo her lanltory, alOn^b this illegal act of aimeiatton was retojilwd aoly by Onti Britain and PakMaa. and not bgp Ibe Arab

Jewish Quiz Box QUESTION: Wby dOM tto Bible make It a ipedal oommandiiMDt to honor one's panolsT ANSWER: This is one of the commandments which commentaries note Is arrived at by sheer logic. However, the Torah made it a special point to Issue this commandment for a number of reasons. In honoring one's parents, t)esldes being logical, one uses it as a means of honoring God. Whatever honor one would show to God would be empty If one would not honor his parents. It is for this reason that God is often referred to as our "Father." Commentaries like Abrabranel claim thai the honor given one's parents is. therefore, a means of teaching one's children by example. Others claim that honoring one's parents Is a means of expressing gratitude tor that which one has received from others. In a way, the whole Jewish tradition is baaed upon the concept of gratitude. Our obedience to God Is based upon our indetitedness to Him to be expressed In a measure of gratitude for the many things we enjoy by His grace. Likewise, honoring one's parents is a measure of gratitude for all our parents have done for us. QUESTKWi: Wily dM* J««Wi tradition require that eane worde of Torah learning be espntaed and dieeuMed at ttw taMe when one eati? ANSWER: It is this practice which supposedly makes the difference between eating as an animal function and eating as a human enterprise. Animals liave Utile else In mind when they consume IheIr food Man. an intellectual being, an Image of the Almighty, raises his physical activity to an intellectual and spiritual level by adding words of culture and inspiration to his mealtime experience.
