Israel's Survival Depends on Solution
of Domestic Woes, Professor Warns

If Israel lost some of its
naivete in the Yom Kippur
War, it also gained a valua-
ble lesson.
"We discovered," said a
young Israeli political scien-
tist, "that we are still in
the process of building a
homeland for the Jews in
Israel. My generation took
that for granted. We discov-
ered in 1973 that we still
have not secured the state
for the Jews."
Dr. Itzhak Galnoor, pro-
fessor of political science at
the Hebrew University, told
the audience at the Jewish
Community Council delegate
assembly Tuesday evening:
"We (Israel) will have to
drop the assumption that we
can carry only one flag at
a time. There is a close in-
terrelationship between the
domestic situation and the
survival of the country."
Dr-. Galnoor predicted that
if the new government fails
to solve the long-range social,
economic and religious prob-
lems, "there will be a new
election within two 'years at
the most."
He was hopeful that the
new trends witnessed prior to
the war will resume and that
there will be a change in
Israel's political structure.
"Those going into politics are
not the best young people.
Politics is too important to
leave to the politicians."
Dr. Galnoor, visiting pro-
fessor of political science at
Wayne State University, said
there must be a change in
Israel's, electoral s y stem
away from the present party
structure and toward a more
regional representation.
Although it's too early to
assess the full impact of the
Yom Kippur War, Dr. Gal-
noor is certain the recent
elections did not reflect that
impact. The voter faced "an
impossible choice" on the
issues of security, punish-
ment of the leadership for
its "mistakes" in the war
and social and economic
problems.
In 1973, "we lost a certain

confidence in our leaclersbifi.
We also lost the naive belief
that we can remain in a
status of no-peace, no-war
for. a long time."
But none of the parties fully
represented the multitude of
feelings among the elector=
ate, said Dr. Galnoor. "Most
important: the changes (in
Knesset seats) can't be ex-'
plained in terms of hawkish
attitudes."
(An Israeli hawk, he noted,
is simply defined: "One who
answers No to the question:
`Given a real peace with the
Arab countries, are you
ready to give back the ter-
ritories?' The so-called hawks
believe there is no chance
the Arabs will sign a real
peace, and thus territory is
the best way to preserve
peace." With the hardening
of the Arab position prior to
the war, the entire political
structure had moved a sten
to the right.) -
When David Ben-Gurion
bolted from Labor to form
the Rafi Party, - his action
was interpreted as a grand-
stand play. "The more time
passes," said Dr. Galnoor,
"the more people appreciate
what Ben-Gurion was saying.
We cannot neglect social fac_
tors."
In other countries, dissatis-
faction would have led to_ a
change of party in power.
But with the 1967 war came
the creation of a unified gov-
ernment. The intervention of
outside forces brought the
reinforcement of .the political
leadership. and stopped the
normal process of many de-
velopments that otherwise
would have taken place, said
Prof. Galnoor.
Dr. Galnoor, who served
on the Sinai front during the
Yom Kippur War, said he is
convinced that in case of an
external threat, Israel is as

united as ever. "It's time we
changed things inside Israel."
"We are at a turning point
in the history of Israel and
the Jewish people," he said:
"It is a s crucial a moment
as the. declaration of inde-
pendence in 1948. What we do
and do not do will influence
the future of the Jews."
Prior to Dr. Galnoor's talk,
Lewis Grossman's name was
proposed for the presidency
of the Jewish Community
Council in a report by the
nominating committee chair-
man, Dr. Shmarya Kleinman.
Grossman, c u r r e nt vice
president of the Council, is
the delegate from the De-
troit Service Group. (See
other nominees below).
Council Executive Direc-
tor Alvin Kushner announced
that Council will participate
with Sinai Hospital in a Tay-
Sachs Disease screening pro-
gram this spring. The Jew-
ish Community Foundation
has approved a grant to en-
able Sinai to conduct the
screening of Jewish couples
prior to marriage and having
children. Tay-Sachs, a gene-
tic disease, afflicts Jewish in-
fants whose antecedents
come from a certain part of
Eastern Europe. Bnai Brith
Women has played an active
role in the Council effort to
bring the problem to the at-
tention of the community.
Kushner also reported that
,000 signatures were
gathered in one week on
petitions calling for Syria to
release the names of Israeli
prisoners of war. The peti-
tions were circulated prior to
Syria's release of the list.
