I had the opportunity to
take in an international
soccer game between Israel
and Germany's Moenchen
Gladbach which ended in a
1-1 tie before 11,000 people
in Bloomfield Stadium. The
game was well played and it
appeared Israel would go
down 1-0 when in the last
second, just prior to the gun
going off, Avrami of Jerus-
_ lem Betar socked the ball,
through the net tying the
score. The German goalten
der had his hand on Av-
rami's hard shot but merely
deflected the ball.
Jerusalem Betar, now in
second place in league
standings, is scheduled to
play the strong Liverpool 11
some time in April and, it is
anticipated, a sellout crowd
of 54,000 people will attend
the match slated for Ramat
Gan Stadium. Jerusalem
Betar will-then play a re-
turn game in Liverpool the
Tollowig_inonth.

Yossi Miramowich, cur-
rently of Hapoel Tel Aviv,
who once coached Beloit
College in Wisconsin to an
undefeated season, is anx-
ious to come to the States in
a year or two in order- to
handle the reins of one of
the American professional
11s. Yossi is very popular
here, liked by all, with a
keen sense of humor and is
very knowledgeable in the
game and would certainly
be an improvement over
some of the coaches now
working in the U.S.

With the Olympics not
too far off, it appears that
the only recruited
American out of the
seven "signed" who
seems likely to make the
Israeli Olympic squad is
Dan Gardner, the discus
thrower from the West
Coast. He has been hurl-
ing the discus 66 meters,
aproximately 10 meters
under the world record,
but well enough to qual-
ify him in that sport.
The other tracksters, if
they return to Israel to train
in June of this year, don't
figure to qualify based on
their best times and dis-
tances. . •
I was invited to attend a
meeting of the Israeli
Olympic Committee and
almost all of the committee
members were opposed to
the recruitment of athletes
for the sole purpose of corn-
peting in sports.
The Olympic people feel
that this type of athlete,
basically, is not a true oleh
and is only interested in
getting a free trip to Mos-

cow.

Broken Promises

NEW YORK (ZINS) —
According to two Israelis
writing in the New York
Times, President Jimmy
Carter threatened in 1977
to intervene with "friends of
Israel in the U.S." if Israeli
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan did not accept the
idea of a Palestinian home-
land.
Dayan reportedly told
Carter that Israel would
never accept a - Palestinian
homeland and listed the
history of American broken
promises: - -
"During the Holocaust,
President Roosevelt saw fit
not to open the gates to
JewiSh refugees. In 1948
while our nation fought for
survival against all the
Arab states, President
Truman though he had
recognized Israel — refused
to give us even one rifle, not
one rifle!
"In 1956, after the Sinai
Campaign, President
Eisenhower promised us
free navigation in inter-
national waters for our
unilateral evacuation of
Sinai. But in 1967, when
Egypt blockaded the
Straits of Tiran, we had to
break the blockade our-
selves. When we asked
President Johnson, in
May of 1967, to fulfill
Ike's promise, the Presi-
dent said to us, "The U.S.
is not the policeman of
the world." '
So, Dayan concluded, Is-
rael did not- expect anyone
to save its people from
another Holocaust. "But it
will not happen, because we
will prevent it."

NEW YORK — Bob
Hope, the globe-trotting
entertainer, will receive the
14th Charles Evans Hughes
Gold Medal of the National
Conference of Christians
and Jews at its annual
dinner at the Waldorf-
Astoria Hotel on Feb. 26.
The award is bestowed
"for courageous leadership
in governmental, civic and
humanitarian affairs. The
award is named for Chief
Justice Hughes, one of the
founders of the NCCJ in
1928.

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — Is-
rael's former Ambassador to
the United Nations, Chaim
Herzog, said the divergence
of American and -Israeli pol-
icy is indicated by the lack
of consultations that were
previously, held annually
before the sessions of the
UN General Assembly.
Herzog also criticized the
Likud government and-
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan for not allowing
more input from the Israeli
Embassy in Washington.
