Historic Irony in Timerman Case

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright 1979, JTA, Inc.)

Jacobo Timerman, a
Jewish publisher in Argen-
tina, was awarded the
Hubert H. Humphrey Prize
of the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith but
was not able to receive the
award, being under house
arrest in his Buenos Aires
apartment. His son, who
lives in Israel, was desig-
nated to accept the -award
for him.
Argentina is now under a
Fascist regime. People sud-
denly "disappear," some
. 5,000 in the last year. Ac,
cording to the New York
dames, the figure may be
oser to 15,000. Some of the
bodies of those who disap-
pear are later found floating
in the water. According to
the Times, Jews "disap-
pear" more than others.
All of which somehow
makes us think of Baron de
Hirsch, the great Jewish
philanthropist. Nowadays,
not so many know of Baron
de Hirsch, but he was once a
most famous and beloved
figure in the Jewish world.
His pocket seemed always
open for any good Jewish
cause.
When "Theodor Herzl

first conceived the idea of
a Jewish state, he hoped
above all for support of
this great philanthropist,
but Baron de Hirsch for
the first time, it seemed,
said no. He himself had a
great solution for the
Jewish problem. He
would establish a great
Jewish settlement in
Argentina.
_
The Baron regarded
Herzl as a visionary. He, on
the contrary, was a practi-
cal man. He had accumu-
lated great wealth building
railroads all over Europe.
That was practical. Argen-
tina was a great land of
empty space, rich in natural
resources. Why seek out a
tiny land in the desolate
Middle East?
Yet now Timerman can
only get his award accepted
by one of the his sons who
settled in Israel. Maybe
after all, Theodor Herzl was
the practical man.
Who can say that Herzl
was not practical? Herzl not
only wanted the Baron's
support, he wanted the sup-
port of all the men of power
— of the many kings of his
day. At that time, Wilhelm
was king of Germany and
Italy had a king. He wanted
the support of both.
Also he wanted the
support of the Pope. He
went to see all three of
them. When you go to see

men like that, if you are a
practical man you put on
your best clothes. You've
got to make a good ap-
pearance. So Herzl went
out, according to his di-
ary, and bought himself a
wonderful pair of gloves.
Anyone looking at those
gloves couldn't help but
think well of the man
wearing them. Herzl was
super-practical.
He did something else. He
deliberately soiled the
gloves a bit so that the kings
would think that the gloves
weren't just bought for this
one occasion, that they were
just routine to him.
No, you can't say that
HerzLwas not practical. But
the best proof- is what has
happened now. The Jew
who settled in Argentina is
under house arrest and he
has to rely on his son who
lives in Israel to accept the
award.

My hiart wells up as I behold
Your hills bedecked with sunshine gold,
And smiling valley down below
Free from the yoke of Arab foe!

Resplendent at the break of dawn,
Ancient and new blending in one,
You rise with steadfast, noble pride
In beauty clad, like regal bride,
Judean Hills — your royal crown,
The valley — your majestic gown!

Your severed heart and severed soul
Through our heroes blood made whole
At last, embraced within our fold,
Reunited for us to hold
As sacred heritage, in trust,
Whose former glory we now must
Revive, protect, perchance increase,
Oh, City of David, City of Peace!

From you, enlightenment,,again,
Shall blaze a Golden Age for Man
And you shall be famed for your great sages,
As you have been in the past ages,
Jerusalem, ours forever,
Again to be divided — never!
