Editor, The Jewish News:
It seems to me that many of the
Current statements concerning'Sov-
iet Jewry are nothing more than
emotion - laden rhetoric. At this
point, I want to deal with the false
premise asserting that those who
wish- to preserve their dignity.
The promulgator of this position
against demonstrations is the Lub-
twitcher Rebbe, Rabbi M.M.
Schneerson. Those who give even
a cursory examination to all his
policies will see that he is not
afraid Of what the world may say.
On every issue, the rebbe has
adopted a stand based on Halakha
and rational , argumentation, de-
spite its unpopularity . . .
Today, the issue at stake is
the validity of active demonstra-
tions in behalf of Soviet Jewry.
The Rebbe does not condemn
those who attend these rallies
through sincere belief. However,
the leaders who repeat the false
slogans — the leaders who re-
dundantly dedamate half truths
concerning the real harm which
is being caused by these dem-
onstrations — these are the
people who must be condemned.
It is true that during World
War II we should have screamed
loudly, demonstrating en masse for
the U.S. to bomb the railroads to
Auschwitz. But it is ludicruos to
assume that the government we
were dealing with then is even
faintly -similar to the Russian &iv-
ernment of today. For then, we
were dealing with the United States
government, a democracy sensi-
tive to its citizens. Today, however,
we are dealing with the Russian
government, an anti-Semitic dicta-
torship which is sensitive to no one.
The fact of the matter is that
public protests have had harmful
effects on the Jews in the Soviet
Union. Further action along these
lines may cause even more harm.
It is true that Russian Jews suf-
fer, in Moscow is 'certainly bet-
ter than to slave in Siberia or per-
ish in the gas chamber.
It is time that euphonic forensic
speakers set out clearly; What did
the demonstrations accomplish?
Haven't they harmed the Soviet
Jew? It is time to reveal the truth
to this equivocal policy. It is time
to stop hiding behind rhetorical
aphorisms. It is time to reveal
Wants-Jews to Vote GOP
Editor, The Jewish News:
With reference to the Israeli
daily newspaper, Davar, and its
appraisal of President Nixon, I'm
sorry more space and emphasis
wasn't given to that report. (It
appeared on Page 22, somewhat
lost, in your March 5 issue.) This
is especially so, since Davar is a
Labor newspaper, not usually
friendly to a Republican admin-
I hope this type of factual news,
not myths, will help to convince
the majority of our Jewish voters
(who are mainly Democrats) that
they have an open invitation to
join the Republican Party. In this
way they will help to conserve
our traditional American freedoms
— essential to the Jew — if they
will just look at the record.

mittee headed by Dr. Itzhak Rap-

guests from Israel.
