Assessing Jewish Situation: Does Past Presage Future?

By JACK SIEGEL
(A Seven Arts Feature)

As is the case each Pas-
sover, we recall the plight of
the Jews in Egypt 3,600
years ago, with bitter herbs.
Today, it behooves the Jew-
ish community to assess
problems around it.

All this winds its way to
the center of American
government, Washington,
also to presidential politics
and concern over who will
head either of the two tick-
ets.

-Whether it will be the in-
cumbent, President Ford or
somebody else in '76 or one
of the many Democrats as-
sembling and jockeying for
that nomination, the heart
of the matter is the stand on
issues: towards Israel, the
oil exchange and as causa-
tive factor in inflation, the
trade deal with the Soviets
which apparently, but not
really hinges on Soviet per-
mission for Jews there to
emigrate.

If that figure is 100,000,
as Dr. Nahum Goldmann
has said, who ultimately
want out, the matter of -So-
viet trade is more profound
than Jewish emigration,
around which Senator
Henry Jackson is basing one
of his claims for Jewish sup-
port and constituency.

The European situation
mirrors the overall prob-
lems confronting Jews.

ing.

We discover there is a
Jewish poor, mostly among
the aged, and this calls for
attention as well as funding.
What has lit up the matter
has been the recent investi-
gation into housing and care
for the elderly where Jews,
on either side of the investi-
gation, figure - prominently. r
While these human mat-
ters go on, we find that
there is an invasion of Arab
finance and propaganda in
the United States. Petrodol-
lars in Arab hands are seek-
ing out pieces of American
business and land; and are
moving into campuses with
offers to universities of
grants, provided there are
no Jewish instructors or
professors.
And to cap it off, in terms
of irony and conflict, an
American concern in Los
Angeles is training Saudi
Arabians in how to protect
L
their oil fields. Against
whom, one New York radio
station asked, against the
only possible threat, the
Americans?

Socialites Set
Anniversary Dance

Detroit Socialites will ce-
lebrate its 19th anniversary
with a dance 9 p.m. Satur-
day at the Oak Park Com-
munity Center.
Johnny C will perform,
and refreshments will be
served. Fol' information, call
Mollie Stern, 342-2791.

Bankers there are being
excluded, according to re-
ports, from business deals
with Arab consortia while
governments are rushing
higgledy-piggledy into
arms sales with Arab
countries. The only recent
brighter note was French
disgust with Arab terror-
ism at their airports and
the feeling that now, fin-
ally something had to be
done. But maneuvering
persists, especially within
the oil consuming nations,
as they haggle for advan-
tage with the oil producer
(mostly Arab) countries.,

While the situation 573D
years ago was tough, one of
the reasons was that we
were slaves. But today, we
are free people, even in the
Soviet Union, to the degree
of our distance from Jewish
tradition. While a Moses
now wouldn't hurt, we have
leaders, but the resolution
to these problems facing the
Jewish communities resides
within the talents of the
communities themselves
and their need to know the
facts so that they can act on
them.
