Graduate Work

for Grandpa

NEW YORK — A grand-
father of 20, Brooklyn's Louis
Milrod has begun a new
career at age 79. as a full-
time graduate student at
Yeshiva University's Ber-
nard Revel Graduate School.
Milrod is pursuing a de-
gree in Jewish history so
that he will be better able
to work with the aged.
In June, the septuagen-
arian received a BA in
Judaic studies from City
University of New York. He
earned his high school di-
ploma in 1969.
"I want to learn more
. about the Judaic heritage,
history and culture, - Milrod
sr'
"I would like to work
w
the Jewish aged, to tell
them stories, develop discus-
sions with them about the
Jewish past. I would like
them to know that somebody
takes an interest in them."
Milrod had almost no
schooling in his native
Poland. When he came to
the U.S. in 1935 he could
scarcely write him name.
As part of his continuing
education, Milrod is planning
to visit Israel, where his
daughter lives, to improve
his knowledge of the Hebrew
language.

...

There are, of course, exceptions. It is estimated that
about 500 Americans of Arab ancestry—some of them active
in national and local American politics—are organized in
small groups in a number of cities with the aim of bringing
pressure upon the U.S. government with regard to its
policy on the Arab-Israel conflict.

These groups which sprang up only last year, were
not united until about a month ago, when some 85 Americans
of Arab descent gathered in Detroit at a "convention" of
the National Association of Arab-Americans. The partici-
pants in this convention—the first of its kind in this country
—came from 14 states and the District of Columbia.
It was at this convention that speakers have announced
that an Arab-American lobby will be established in Wash-
ington to reach leading figures in the White House, State
Department and both Houses of Congress.
Dr. Peter Tanous of Washington, who was elected
president at the convention, lost no time to report that
Assistant Secretary of State Joseph Sisco, who formulates
the State Department's policy on the Arab-Israel issue, indi-
cated that the State Department would "cooperate" with
him. He added that such an indication was also expressed
by Harold Saunders, assistant to Dr. Henry Kissinger. Dr.
Tanous is a graduate of West Point and a former West
Point official. Among the speakers at the convention was
also Senator James Abourezk, South Dakota Democrat, who
is of Arab ancestry.
JEWISH ALERTNESS: Cautious as the group of Amer-
icans of Arab descent is in seeing to it that its pro-
gram should not be confused with the programs of the
Arab groups in this country justifying Arab terrorism
against Israel and advocating the destruction of Israel, it
is nevertheless clear that the new organization will require
special attention on the part of American Jewry interested
in checking anti-Israel efforts in this country.

At present, anti•Israel propaganda is gaining ground
in the American universities and in the academic com•
munities as a result of increased efforts on the part -of a
well-coordinated network of Arab students. There is hardly
a college or university in the U.S. today where one does
not find Arab students.

Totaling many thousands, they are all working under
the direction of the Organization of Arab Students which
is fanatically anti-Israel and even injects thinly veiled anti-
Jewish tones in its propaganda activities.
Another rabid anti-Israel organization gaining in its
propaganda efforts in the American academic world is the
Association of Arab-American University Graduates. It
reaches a substantial number of college professors and
teachers even though it is not a mass-membership group.
The headquarters of this organization are in Detroit, in
the law office of a local attorney Abdeen Jabara.

ON THE DIASPORA

Prof. Robert T. Handy,
Christian scholar from Union
Theological Seminary, stated
that the appropriation of the
Zion image, of such phases
and concepts as "Chosen
People" and "Promised
Land" should be examined
to understand the attitudes
of many types of Americans
toward Israel.
Stressed constantly during
the session was the need for
further study of archival and
research depositories in the
United States, Israel and
other countries.

The Diaspora is difficult in
itself—this is realized by all
and all seek ways to extract
themselves from it. But even
more difficult is the fact that
the Diaspora has killed our
independent life force, the
strength to create for our-
selves, for our own part and
on our own responsibilities.
