issues are discussed. These
are not trivial issues, these
are central issues."
He noted that "the pro-
cedure is sometimes as
important as substance. It
makes a good deal of differ-
ence who participates in
negotiations, what the pur-
poses of the countries are
and in what sequence issues
are discussed. These are not
trivial issues, these are cen-
tral issues."
Kissinger warned, "A sep-
arate Arab state on the
West Bank, whatever its
declaration, whatever its
intentions, must have an
objective that cannot have
compatibility with the tran-
quility of the Middle East."
This has nothing to do with
assurances and promises
but is "inherent in the
logic" of the Middle East
circumstances, he said. No
nation, he added, "can
entrust its destiny simply to
the good will of another
In that connection, Kissi-
nger contended that "all
foreign policy must begin
with concern for the bal-
ance of power. Therefore,
Jews must stand for that in
the countries in which they
live. They cannot attack a
defense program in their
own country and defend a
strong Israel. This is a
necessity that should be
beyond discussion," he said.
Kissinger said, "All Jews
must be' for peace because
no people has suffered so
much from its absence" but
all Jews know that "peace
cannot rest on the profes-
sion" of political promises.
He said that Jews have seen
too much of transitory
"All Jews know they can

easily become targets of
popular emotions - and
"therefore feel they must
not be seen as the source of
international difficulty. And
yet, all Jews have seen too
much of suffering, too many
killed, to abdicate their
judgment what is necessary
for peace," Kissinger said.
At the closing session of
the WJC conference, Philip
Klutznick, chairman of the
_WJC board of governors,
succeeded Nahum Gold-
mann as WJC president.
Goldmann was elected
founding president. Lord
Fisher of Camden, presi-
dent of the Board of Depu-
ties of British Jews, was
elected chairman of the
WJC board of governors.
Following President Car-
ter's speech to the WJCon-
gress last Wednesday he
was presented with a 14th
Century Sefer Torah and the
President promised to place
it in the White House where
he could see it every day
and be reminded of the sen-
timents of those who gave it
to him.
Kim Weissman of Balti-
more, who at 16 was the
youngest delegate at the
meetings, crocheted a yar-
mulka with the name
"Jimmy" on it, and pre-
sented it to President Car-
ter. Miss Weissman repre-
sented the National

increased attention to the
fight against anti-Semitism
in all its forms."
"The increased economic
and political power of the
Arab states and the dan-
gerous expansion q the
Arab boycott against Israel
and the countries trading
with her has increased the
need for systematic
counteraction on a world-
wide scale," he declared.
One of the "major contri-
butions" of the WJC in this
sphere, he said, was the set-
ting up of an international
anti-boycott committee to
initiate measures to combat
the practice, and coordinate
activities of national affil-
iates in some 60 countries.
In reporting the expanded
relations with the Third
World, Riegner said that the
WJC had realized "for quite
some time that the increas-
ing importance of the coun-
tries of Africa and Asia on
the international scene
make it necessary to rem-
edy the mutual ignorance
that generally exists
between Jews and the peo .
pies of the Third World."
Dr: Riegner said on-going -

During the meetings, Jew-
ish leaders attended the re-
opening of the Klutznick
Museum in the Bnai Brith
Building. The museum was
closed last March after the
takeover of the building by
Hanafi Muslim terrorists. '
A major exhibition,
"Roots of Stone: Jerusalem
Unearthed" depicting arch-
eological finds from the 10th
Century BCE to the destruc-
tion of Jerusalem in 70CE,
was opened.
Also, Mark Turkow, exec-
utive director of the Lation
American branch of the
World Jewish Congress for
25 years and, a founder of
the WJC, announced
retirement. Turkow was
named a member of the
general Council.

Diane Levine,

greeted the Moroccan dele-
gation in French, was allud-
ing to the suicide of the
Jewish zealots at Masada
and the founding of the first
yeshiva after the fall of the
Second Temple at Yavneh,
which helped enable the
Jewish people survive
through the centuries.
Burg said the spirit of
Israel is high despite the
fact that they have not had
a single night of peace since
the founding of the state and
at present 22 percent of its
manpower is engaged in
some form of security task
either in the armed forces
or the defense industry.
Burg, a member of the
National Religious Party,
praised the Begin govern-
ment's latest economic deci-
sion saying it is a "cou-
rageous step in the right
direction." In a play on
words, Burg drew laughter
when he said "we are will-
ing to go to Geneva pro-
vided it won't be a `gen-
eva'," the Hebrew and
Yiddish equivalent for
,,ripoff. ,,
Israel accepted the
"working papei" of Oct. 11
in cooperation with the
United States "with a heavy
heart," Burg said.. He
described the paper as
"close to the border of the
possible and impossible."
He said "Israel is willing to
struggle for peace at the
table but not on the table."
Referring to Jewish set-
tlements on the West Bank,
Burg said they are not as
important as some have
been led to believe, and not
as dangerous as some want
the people to believe.
In another context, he
said, "Israel shalt not be
sold down the river,
whether the name of this
river is Jordan or the

Rabbi Hecht also declared
that homosexuals have no
right to be teachers. At the
same time, he appealed to
the American people to
strengthen the institution of
marriage and to oppose the
theory and practice of "con-
senting adults." ,
