ZOA Accepts Applications
for Its Israel High School

NEW YORK β€” Applica-
tions for the 1976/77 aca-
demic school year, at the
Mollie Goodman Academic
High School in Israel, are
now being accepted, accord-
ing to an announcement
made by the Zionist Organi-
zation of America depart-
ment for high school educa-
tion in Israel.
The Mollie Goodman Aca-
demic High School was es-
tablished in 1967 and is op-
erated under the
supervision of the Israel
Ministry of Education. In
addition to the American
curriculum and Jewish
studies offered by the school
there is extensive touring of
the entire country.
The school is located on
the 520-acre Kfar Silver
campus. There it shares the
grounds with two Israeli
high schools, the Kfar Silver
Agricultural High School
and the Kfar Silver Techni-
cal High School.

Meanwhile, a new Israel
Summer Program for col-
lege-age men and women
will be inaugurated by the
Zionist Organization of
America Youth Department
in order to acquaint more
people with Israel's basic
farming unit, the Moshay.
The new program, accord-
ing to Dr. Joseph P. Stern-
stein, president of . the
120,000- member ZOA is
seen as a first tentative step
in the development of the
ZOA as a vehicle for the
immigration to Israel of
Americans interested in set-
tling on the land through
the Moshav movement.
The Moshav, a small hold-
er's farming cooperative,
balances the advantages of a
private economy with the
advantages of cooperative
farming.
For information on
Summer in Moshav, write

ment.
A nationwide campaign
to get American leaders to
publicly identify withZion-
ism by awarding them ZOA
"Zionism buttons" has been
an outstanding success, ac-
cording to Leon Ilutovich,
ZOA executive director.
The campaign, part of 'a
300,000 button ZOA spon-
sored distribution effort,
has resulted in pinning the
blue and white Zionist but-
tons on hundreds of public
figures, including Michi-
gan's Gov. William Milliken.

Principled

America first: not merely
in science, inventions, sky-
scrapers, and highways, but
in principles of conduct and
depth of character.

Historical Zionism Definition

Dr. Elias Cooper, editor of
the American Zionist, the
literary monthly magazine
published by the Zionist
Organization of America,
defines both the Israeli role
as well as the Palestinian
and Arab involvements in a
24-page brochure, "A Por-
trait of a National Libera-
tion Movement," published
by the ZOA.
In this pamphlet, which
originally was the text of a
long article in the American
Zionist, Dr. Cooper, who is
professor of modern history
at the City University of
New York, reviews the de-
velopment of Zionism and
the emergence of Israel and
makes important comments
on the Arab situation. With
reference to the latter he
states:
"Modern Israel is the suc-
cessor state, not of an Arab
state, but of the previous
Turkish and British rulers
on 20 percent of the historic
area of Palestine. The other
80 percent is Arab, but the
Arabs insist on calling that
part of it Jordan.
"The exercise of sover-
eign rights by the 'people
of Palestine' is a two-way
street. Jews are among the
`people of Palestine.'
Throughout the centuries
of persecution in the Dias-
pora, there was always a
Jewish presence in Pales-
tine. The city of Jerusalem
had a Jewish majority in
the 19th Century even be-
fore the waves of modern
Zionist immigration.
"Palestine is a country
straddling both banks of the
Jordan River. The territory
and population from the
Jordan River to Iraq is 80
percent of Palestine. His-
tory justifies Jewish sover-
eignty over the remaining 20
percent of Palestine.
"If any of the protagon-
ists in the Middle East con-
flict can be accused of rac-
ism, it is the Arabs. There
are 20 Arab countries in
which AKabs can enjoy sov-
ereign rights, but they
would deny such rights to
the Jewish people. They
would even deny the exist-
ence of a Jewish people by
using the prevarication that
their national movement is
not supported by all Jews.
"While it is true that
some Jewish fringe ele-
ments are anti-Zionist (ex-
treme assimilationists who
insist that Jews constitute
only a religious community,
and the extreme Orthodox
who consider it sacrilege to
bypass the Messiah's work
by reestablishing a Jewish

Devalued Pound

JERUSALEM (ZINS) β€”
The latest devaluation of the
Israel pound is the 17th
since the establishment of
the Jewish,state. In 1948 the
rate of exchange was US
$1=IL 0.25. In 1949 it was
IL 0.35 and in 1952 IL 0.72.
By 1953 the rate of exchange
had become US $1= IL 1.80;
in 1962, IL 3.00; and in 1967,
IL 3.50. By 1971 it was IL
4.20, falling in 1974 to IL 6.
In the year 1975 there were
three devaluations with the
dollar rising from IL 6.00 to
IL 7.10. In 1976 there have
been four further devalua-
tions to TL 7.52.

state), Zionism and the af-
firmation of Jewish people-
hood represents the general
will of the Jewish people the
world over today.
"Finally, the Zionists
never used racial concepts
in their struggle against
the Arabs, but the extreme
racist anti-Semitic 'Pro-
tocols of the Elders of
Zion' is a best-seller in
the Arab world, and its
formulations are used by
the Arabs exactly as the
Nazis used them.
"The Arab war against
Israel did not end in 1948. It
was kept up by well-heeled
guerrilla movements and
brought to renewed full
scale fighting with ever-in-
creasing levels of force in
1956, 1967 and 1973. The
opportunism of - the Soviet
Union initially gave the Ar-
abs the wherewithal for ag-
gression.
"It is currently assuming
perilous dimensions due to
the sudden wealth the Arab
states have amassed as a
result of their victimizing
the industrial world by
quadrupling the price of the
oil. The Arabs can now buy
not only weapons, but make
their economic and political
boycott of Israel more effec-
tive by outright blackmail of
governments and companies
who are anxious for their
business.
"Only 'a determined,
principled stand by the
Western powers can pre-
vent a demoralization of

the world by Arab fanati-
cism."
