Children of the New Left Play
Strange Game of Hero, Villain

(Coninued from Page 1)
25. They do not remember the
anguish of the 1930s and 1940s.
Their political orientation -began
after the era of Sen. Joseph Mc-
Carthy whose excesses made
anti-Communism a "cult" to be
scorned. They matured with
Castro as their hero. The United
Fruit Company, the Establish-
ment and Batista, the militarist,
were the villains. Then Ho Chi
Minh emerged as the "good guy,"
Premier Ky was the "fink," the
U.S. forces were the fascists,
the Viet Cong the freedom-
fighters. -
In this frame of reference, Arab
"socialism" seems more appealing
than "Zionism." A negative image
is generated by Zionism, something
ancient and connected with re-
ligion and bond corporations and
establishments. Military efficiency
is guated with fascism and re-
n. The less competent
especially the guerrillas,
e the heroes, the under-
ground, the popular forces, the
avant garde of social change, the
revolution.
These same young people are
reluctant to accept the fact that
a Communist regime, Poland, is
now brutally anti-Semitic- and
suppresses the - free speech of
students. Only about_ a half-
dozen youths could be mustered
from all the colleges and univer-
sities of the national capital area
to picket the Polish Embassy.
The campus apparently bought
the line. that Poland was merely
"anti - Zionist and not anti -
Semitic."

Youths have poured out by the
thousands to demonstrate against
the Pentagon and White House.
They have faced police clubs and
Negro scorn to • support black
power by seizing university offices.
They are doing their "thing," as
they see it.
In the peculiar philosophy of
young liberals, a murdered Jew-
ish merchant is seen as an - ex-
ploiter. But a Negro killed by
police is automatically a victim
of racism and police brutality.
He is mourned as a freedom- •
fighter.
The spring madness is confusing
many. It is especially annoying
to the harassed Israelis. If _they
are stooges of the Washington war-
lords, why can't they buy the
Phantom jets they need? If they
are neo-colonialists and militarists,
why do the Arabs becOme immune
from criticism for the very same
tendencies? Why are Nasser and
Hussein pitied while Eshkol and
-Dayan are ridiculed?. If the
Russian role_ in the Middle East
is not that of a militarist, colonial-
ist, and imperialist, what in heav-
en's name is?

Legislature Salutes Israel

State Rep. Albert A. Kramer,
who represents the 67th District
encompassing the cities of Oak
Park and Southfield, introduced a
resolution in the Michigan Legis-
lature congratulating the state of
Israel upon achieving the 20th an-
niversary of its birth. The resolu-
tion adopted by the House of Rep-
resentatives referred to Israel as
"a country of beauty and culture,"
and a "haven for many thousands
fleeing terrorism and persecu-
tion."
The resolution continued:
"Whereas, under the leader-
David
ship of Prime`
Ben Gurion, for most of these 20
years, Israel has developed into
a modern nation and cultural
center—and has made remark-
able economic progress estab-
lishing 478 agricultural settle-
ments and more than doubling
the number of industrial enter-
prises during the first 15 years
of existence as an official state;
and
"Whereas, Israel today faces an
uncertain future; the people of this
nation are undaunted by hardships
as they work in the spirit of love
and unity to make their country
