a prerequisite for discour-

18 months than it was dur-
ing the preceding 25 years.
While the atmosphere re-
mains tense, and the re-
newal of hostilities is al-
ways possible, I do not
believe that the American
attempt at mediation
should be labeled as a fail-
ure because the United
States is still the nation that
both sides trust and are
willing to use as a mediator.
Some of the people who
are most dismayed over the
collapse of negotiations have
blamed Israeli intransig-
ence for the current im-
passe. It would be a grave
mistake to allow this myth
to become a popular notion
in this country, because Is-
rael has given up territory
west of the Suez Canal, has
pulled back from territory
in the Sinai that Egypt
never occupied during the
1973 war, has retreated
from the approaches to Da-
mascus, and has given up
Kuneitra and surrounding
land that Syria was unable
to make militarily.

These concessions have
been made in absence of
the one act from the Arabs
that would be truly mean-
ingful: a permanent, nego-
tiated peace settlement.

During this latest round
of negotiations (supposedly
scuttled by Israeli intran-
sigence) what did Israel of-
fer?

Israel offered to pull back
from the strategic Gidi and
Mitle passes which com-
mand the approaches to the
southern Suez Canal, guard
the large Israeli base at Re-
fidim, and control the road
south to Abu Rodeis. These
passes serve as a defense
line not just for Sinai, but
for all of Israel.
While I was in Israel I had
the opportunity to visit the
Golan Heights. By just
standing there on those
heights and looking down
into the valley, it became
painfully clear in just one
moment why it would be ab-
solutely suicidal for Israel
to give up those heights and
to take even the slightest
risk of Syria swoop
down on the people who live
in the kibutzim. There is no
doubt in my mind that a
stable peace can never be
achieved until Israel has
reached a political concilia-
tion with her neighbors.
I commend Israel for the
willingness to give up so
much of the territory occu-
pied in the 1967 war for the
.sake of permanent peace
while Egypt was unwilling
to make even a public pledge
of non-belligerency in re .-
turn for these concessions.

In fact, the Arab states
don't appear ready to
make any compromise. I
see no change in their

Economic, Political Situation
Affecting Argentine Jews

BUENOS AIRES (JTA)
— Itzhak Korn, general sec-
retary of the World Labor
Zionist movement, said that
he found that the deterio-
rating economic and politi-
cal situation which has sev-
erely hit the Argentine
middle class is also seri-
ously affecting Jewish insti-
tutions.
Korn, who is also chair-
man of the Israel branch of
the World Jewish Congress,
is here in Buenos Aires for
the fourth Argentine Labor
Zionist Congress. He urged
that wealthy local Jews do
their utmost to save Jewish
institutions here.
Only 17 percent of Jewish
children in Argentina re-
ceive some kind of Jewish
education, Korn said he was
told. The Labor Zionist Con-
gress decided to take emer-
gency action to save Jewish
schools and other institu-
tions here as well as to urge
increased aliya.

Korn castigated Argen-
tine Zionists for their pas-
sivity which he said has
led to the virtual paralysis
of the Argentine Zionist
movement. He also de-
nounced the tendency of
Jewish professionals to
move from one Diaspora
country to another without
making aliya.

Two educators, Fanny
Karduner and Prof. Yaacov
Rubel, deplored the plight of
Jewish schools in Argen-
tina. They noted that be-
cause of the economic situa-
tion here many Jewish
parents can no longer afford

the tuition to send their
children to Jewish schools.
Dr. Lazaro Rubinson,
president of the Argentine
Zionist Organization, said
that the younger generation
knows nothing about Jewish
life and is unwilling to con-
sider Zionism and aliya.
Meanwhile, it was learned
that the official Argentine
policy for the upcoming con-
ference of non-aligned coun-
tries in Lima will be to exert
a moderating influence on
Mideast questions. Argen-
tina will oppose the pro-
posed expulsion of Israel
from the United Nations
both at Lima- and at the
General Assembly meeting
in September.

Rosh Hashana
Reader Offered

NEW YORK — A new
publication called "Rosh
Hashana Home Reader" is
being distributed by Cong.
Kol Yisroel Chaverim, the
national synagogue for iso-
lated and unaffiliated Jew-
ish families. The eight-page

leaflet has been prepared in
time for the Jewish New
Year observance which
starts Sept. 5.
Edited and compiled by
Rabbi Robin R. Dohin, spir-
itual leader of the congrega-
tion, the publication will he
sent without charge. For a
copy, send a self-addressed
stamped envelope to Rabbi

ence, New York 11559.

rhetoric, the terrorist at-
tacks have continued and
they waged another highly
successful propaganda
war. Thus from these
facts, it is easy to see that
the impasse was not
caused totally by Israeli
unwillingness to 'compro-
mise or by failure of Amer-
ican policy.

The mere fact that there
is to be a reassessment of
U.S. policy in no way her-
alds a crisis in American-

Abzug Applauds
Support for Israel

NEW YORK — Rep. Bella
S. Abzug (D-N.Y.) said she
was "extremely pleased and
gratified" that 10 black con-
gressional leaders and a
number of peace, disarma-
ment and women's groups
had issued statements
strongly upholding Israel's
right to remain in the
United Nations.
At the congresswoman's
request, the 10 representa-
tives, the committee for a
Sane Nuclear Policy
(SANE), the Fellowship of
Reconciliation (FOR), the
Women's International
League for Peace and Free-
dom (WILPF), Women
Strike For Peace (WSP) and
the Friends Committee on
National Legislation
(FCNL), all released state-
ments or letters opposing
the recent resolutions by
African and Moslem states
calling for Israel's exclusion
from the UN.
Statements were also re-
ceived from leaders -of the
National Urban League, the
National Organization for
Women (NOW) and the
Women's Political Caucus
(WPC).

Israeli relations. I think it is
understood that we will not
he dictated to in the forma-
tion of our policy and that
we will not be blackmailed
economically or otherwise.
Support for Israel remains
strong with the American
people and in the Congress
even though there is an iso-
lationist movement afoot.
Inasmuch as the Ameri-
can commitment to the soy-
ereignity of Israel remains a
cornerstone of American
policy in the eastern Medi-
terranean, the task before
us is this: We must make it
evident once again in Cairo,
in Damascus, in Baghdad,
as well as in Moscow, that
we stand behind the legiti-
macy of the Jewish nation.
