the lack of results thus far of
his diplomatic initiative
toward Israel, he has within
a few short weeks armed
himself with a plebiscite

Arab Charges Bias in Attemp t
to Buy House in Jewish Area

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Israel Supreme Court
began hearings Wednesday
on a complaint by an East
Jerusalem Arab that he was
barred from buying a flat in
the Jewish quarter because
he is an Arab.
The
complainant,
Mohammed Said Burkan,
alleges discrimination on
the part of the
government-owned corpo-
ration for the reconstruc-
tion and development of the
Jewish quarter which re-
fused to allow him to bid for
the flat which -he had for-
merly occupied.
Burkan, a house-painter
by profession, and his fam-
ily, were forced to leave the
premises a year ago when
the building was exprop-
riated by government order
and renovated. Residency
was restricted to veterans of
the armed services and new
immigrants.
At the outset of the
hearing, presiding Jus-
tice Haim Cohen warned
Burkan that the court

Call when it's least expensive. For example, when you're calling long
distance, dial direct and plan your calls for times when the rates are lowest.
Budget Service that's really low budget! Look into the availability of
Budget Service if you don't make a lot of phone calls every month. It's the

Plan to have all your service installed in one visit For instance, if you
move, plan carefully so the installer doesn't have to make extra trips,
for which you may have to pay additional charges. And while you're

Drinan Says Christians Now
Recognize Israel Relationship

would not assist him if he
came before it "dishon-
estly." The Justice
wanted to know why
Burkan has not applied
for Israeli citizenship and
criticized him for giving
interviews to the foreign
media in which there was
"an element of slander
against the state."

The defendants were rep-
resented by Dr. Moshe Ben
Zeev, one of Israel's leading
attorneys who argued that
there was no discrimination
against Burkan because
"the Jewish quarter fights
for its destiny as a Jewish
quarter." He asked the
court if it would support "an
appeal by a Jew who wanted
to live in Medouin

Burkan's lawyer, Ab-
raham Lenemann, argued
that the government-owned
company had practiced dis-
crimination which was con-
trary to the letter and spirit
of Israel's proclamation of
independence. "Just as Is-
rael can be a Jewish state
with an Arab minority, so
can the Jewish quarter be
Jewish with an Arab minor-
ity," he said.

Justice Cohen chal-
lenged the sincerity of
Burkan's appeal on
grounds that the comp-
lainant had said that as a
Moslem he was forbidden
to sell property to Jews.
"Burkan cannot comp-
lain that he is discimi-
nated against when he
himself adheres to dis-
crimination. When he
comes to this court he
must first come to us in
honesty. We do not assist
those who come to us dis-
honestly," he said.

At another point, assert-
ing that if he showed sol-
idarity with the state it
would have strengthened
his case for living in peace
with Jews. Lenemann re-
plied that it is not citizen-
ship that determines loy-
alty and it is not up to the
housing corporation to de-
termine loyalty to the state.

The court will review the
case and announce its deci-
sion at a later date.

direct intervention of
God to punish the Jews."
It was the early Christian
fathers, he explained,
who elaborated on the
theme that Jews killed
Jesus.
At least today, Drinan
said, "Christians are recog-
nizing the validity, dynamic
quality and permanence of
the state of Israel. At least I
know that anti-Semitism is
a type of de-
Christianization." Accord-
ing to Drinan, what Christ-
ians have to understand is
that "the country (Israel) is
an essential part of the
Jewish faith throughout the
world."

eral Assembly resolution of
1975 condemning Zionism
as racism was the act that
"galvanized Christians to
state that they have solidar-
ity with Israel," according
to Father Robert E. Drinan,
a Democratic Congressman
from Massachusetts who be-
lieves that Christians have
long misunderstood the re-
lationship of the state of Is-
rael to the Jewish people.
Drinan, a nationally
prominent Jesuit scholar
and theologian, addressed a
meeting of the National
Conference of Christians
and Jews here which
awarded him its National
Media Brotherhood Award
for his book, "Honor the
Promise: America's Com-
mitment to Israel."
In his remarks he traced
the history of anti-Semitism
in Christianity and the av-
ersion, until fairly recently,

the trad-
itional Catholic Church.
"After the Holocaust, I
thought Christians finally
would sanction Zionism,"
Drinan said. But between
1945 and 1948 Jews found

Referring to the Carter
Administration's policies
toward Israel, Drinan said
he hoped that Vice Presi-
dent Walter Mondale "is
right" when he says the
White House stands fast in
its commitment to Israel.
He noted that this year, Is-
rael has received from the
U.S. aid equivalent to $600
for every man, woman and
child in that country. He
said those figures lead him
to believe that Congres-
sional support for Israel
"has not been eroded."

He recalled that as
early as 1903, Pope Pius
IX issued a declaration
stating that the Catholic
Church "cannot approve
of the Zionist movement"
because "The Jews have-
not recognized our
Lord." He said this at-
titude could be traced
back to early Christianity
which believed that the
destruction of the Temple
in Jerusalem was due "to

He called the American
commitment to Israel from
its inception "very, very
unusual" observing that the
financial aid it has received
from the U.S. is unique in
the history of American
foreign assistance.
Drinan added, "We need
to explore the moral com-
mitment that this country
has toward Israel and put it
in religious terms. No one
can be a good Christian
until first he is a good Jew."

Father's Day Memory

By SHARON GASPAS GOLDENBERG

Dear Dad,
Contemplating old memories, remembering the fun
We used to have together when I was very young.
Your wisdom and your guidance became a part of me,
But my childhood inexperience prevented me to see.

For now that Pm a parent I've experienced too
What it is to care for someone who is a part of you.
And it is through our children we never have to fear,
For that shadow of remembrance will continue to appear.

The Hills Were Sufficient for Judah

By LEO SCHNEIDERMAN

The Western Sea was no-
thing
To our fathers
It did not invade their stron-
gholds
With flooding inlets
And they rarely disturbed
its waters
With pointed ships
The hills were sufficient
For Judah
And even Zebulon and the
others,
Heirs to the coast,

Little suspecting that their _

Across stormy seas
Where God's Law was un-

And Leviathan reigned
On Land as well as on the
