sentative Palestinian leader
— and if that happened to
be PLO chieftain Yasir Ara-
fat, "then so be it."
Yadin, an internationally
prominent archeologist
since leaving the army,
made his remarks during an
hour-long television inter-
view in which he made it
plain that his political ambi-
tion was to achieve the
Premiership.
He said that if he thought
a new political list with
strong "dove-ish" leanings
could "hold the balance"
between the two major blocs
— Labor and Likud — he
would head such a list and
seek to capture a following
large enough the head a gov-
ernment coalition. He said
he would be "testing the wa-
ters" during the next few
months before deciding
whether to enter next year's
Knesset elections.
Yadin said of his political
credo that he firmly be-
lieved in a "democratic Is-
rael" and in a "Jewish Is-
rael." He maintained that if
the West Bank remained
under Israeli rule, neither of
those two vital conditions
could be fulfilled.
Only last week, Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon spoke
in the same vein when he
admonished annexationists
that if Israel- perpetuated
military rule over the West
Bank it would not be a dem-
ocratic state and if it ab-
sorbed the West Bank's
Arab population with full
and equal rights as citizens,
it would cease to be a Jewish
state.
Yadin stressed that he did
not favor Israel's return to
its pre-June, 1967 borders
because certain strategi-
cally important positions
must be retained. He op-
posed the creation of a third
state between "the desert
and the sea" and seemed to
envisage peace with a single
Palestinian state that would
embrace present-day Jor-
dan and much of the West
Bank. He said, however,
that he favored negotiating
with an authentic repre-
sentative of the Palestini-
ans, even Arafat, rather
than with King Hussein.
"What difference does it
make if it is Arafat or an-
yone else? We want to talk
peace with an authoritative
partner," Yadin said.
Meanwhile, the Mapam
political committee adopted
a resolution that would de-
fer for at least six months a
decision as to whether Ma-
pam remains in the Labor
Alignment or submits a
separate list in next year's
Knesset election. The reso-
lution will be presented to
the Mapam convention next
month.
An Israeli Arab and a
Druze leader who comprise

Muadi and the former
Mayor of Nazareth, Seif-A-
Din Zuabi.
Muadi occupies the post
of Deputy Minister of Ag-
riculture. He did not say in
the letter that he intended
to relinquish it. But he and
Zuabi complained that they
were consistently over-
looked by the Labor Align-
ment Leadership and never
consulted. Muadi and Zuabi
reportedly were piqued over
a. meeting Rabin and Allon
held last week with another
Arab group calling itself
"Change and Co-existence."

YIGAL YADIN

the "Progress and Develop-
ment" Knesset faction
closely linked to the Labor
Alignment announced that
they were breaking their
ties with Labor and forming
an independent faction of
their own. A formal notifi-
cation of their intentions
was sent to the Alignment's
Knesset whip, Moshe Wert-
man, by Druze Sheikh Jaber

REBECCA GRATZ 1781 1869
From the birth to the rebirth of the Natiom

-

of the most beautiful and gracious
_ women of her time, Rebecca Gratz
was born to wealth in Philadelphia
and devoted her life to charitable
causes. As a little girl she heard talk of the new
Constitution, saw the drafters entering Inde-
pendence Hall and giving birth to the Nation.
She lived to see its rebirth after Lee's surrender
at Appomatox.
Among her friends was Washington Irving,
who, on a visit with Sir Walter Scott in Eng-
land, told the great author how RebeOca, at
peril to her own life, had nursed Irving's
fiancee, 18 year old Matilda Hoffman, dying
from tuberculosis. Scott, never knowing Jews
and indulging in the prejudices of the day, was
struck with the compassionate Rebecca and
the high esteem in which Philadelphia held the
Gratz family. Scott immortalized her as the
lovely and faithful Rebecca in his celebrated
novel, "Ivanhoe."
Rebecca Gratz fell in love with a man not of
her faith. Instead of marriage she wedded her

life to the service of fellow Jews less fortunate
than she. Among her charities and the Jewish
organizations which she helped to found and
worked in were: the Philadelphia Orphans'
Home; the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society;
the Jewish Foster Home and also the Hebrew
Sunday School Society of Philadelphia. For
many years she was concerned with the relig-
ious training of all Jewish children including
those of her own synagogue. Under her direc-
tion, the first Jewish Sunday School in the U.S.
opened in 1838.
Rebecca Gratz was acclaimed as one of the
noblest women in the world, when laid to rest
in Mikvah Israel Cemetery in Philadelphia in
1869 at the age of 88.
