Stump the Star: Brzezinski vs. Events in Jewish History

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright 1977, JTA, Inc.)

Prof. (Zbigniew) Bre-
zinski is a chief adviser of
the State Department on
Middle East affairs. His
views have not always been
too happily received in
some Jewish quarters, but
all will concede his con-
scientiousness and scholar-
ship and good intentions.
The professor at college
is, of course, used to "flunk-
ing" students, but the other
- day the press reported he
took a special delight in
"flunking" the White House
correspondents in their
knowledge of American his-
tory. The professor asked
the newspapermen who was
the first President who trav-
eled abroad while in office.
"Not a single one knew,"
said the professor, "that it
was President Taft who vis-
ited Panama."
It turns out that the pro-
fessor also was wrong.
Someone pointed out that

before Taft, President Theo-
dore Roosevelt while in
office had visited Panama.

Since the professor is an
expert on the Middle East,
we thought he might enjoy a
little quiz of our own. We
will give the questions and
answers side by side, so the
professor will be able to
mark himself whether he
has flunked this test. If he
answers half of the ques-
tions, we will consider that
he has not flunked.

1. Who was the first Presi-
dent to support the idea of
re-establishing the Jewish
state?
Answer: The second Pres-
ident, John Adams, in a let-
ter to Mordecai Manuel
Noah, the first American
Zionist, warmly supported
the idea.
2. Who was the first Presi-
dent to visit Palestine?
Answer: President Grant
on his tour around the
world, after his retirement,

visited Jerusalem and was
at the Temple Wall.
3. Who was the. first
President after the Civil
War, who, by his appoint-
ments, gave evidence of the
special relationship of Jews
to the Middle East?
Answer: President Cleve-
land, who appointed Oscar
Straus minister to Turkey,
which at the time was in
control of Palestine. Later
Presidents blamed Henry
Morgenthau and Abram
Elkus ambassadors to Tur-
key for the same reason.
4. Did any American
President offer support to
the Balfour Declaration for

the establishment of a Jew-
ish Homeland?
Answer: Yes, President
Woodrow Wilson took a very
definite firm stand in its
behalf. A group of and-Zion-
ists in America • opposed
American support. Rabbi
Stephen Wise, visiting Wil-
son at the White House,
warned him that the oppo-
nents would come visit him
and present him with their
paper against American
support for the Balfour
Declaration.
President Wilson reas-
sured Rabbi Wise. "Don't
worry," he said, "I have a
big waste basket."
