Kahane Party
Ban Is Urged

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
resolution to ban Rabbi
Meir Kahane's ultra-
nationalist "Kach" move-
ment was sent to the Knes-
set's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee after
the Knesset unanimously
condemned the group and
its leader.

Kahane, who founded the
Jewish Defense League in
the U.S. in Israel for haras-
sing Arabs during the
1960s, has been arrested a
number of times.

Technion Engineer Studies
Energy-Efficient Buildings

HAIFA — Research by
Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology engineers may
radically alter our concep-
tion of how to build homes
and offices.
"Until now, we have been
thinking in the direction of
repairing the present de-
sign of buildings, in order to
make them more energy ef-
ficient," explains Dr. Eliahu
Ne'eman, an electrical
engineer specializing in the
use of solar radiation in the
building environment, who
is on the staff of Technion's
Department of Architecture
and Town Planning.
"We must rethink what
the characteristics of the
`solar shell' or 'building
envelope' should be and find
optimal solutions for overall
energy balance. We are
working on a long-term
project, and we are think-
ing, possibly, of a complete
change in what we now call
the outer building shell," he
said.
"The energy crisis re-
quires us to get the
maximum of free energy
and to use a minimum of
exhaustible energy," ex-

A Master's Hand

By THOMAS EYLES

Manchester, England

There's rhythm and rhyme and reason
in everything God has planned;
The joyfull work of a genius with
a touch of a master's hand!

Do the world's small problems trouble you?
Earth's trials cause you pain?
Let God arise within your heart
Let life begin again!

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Liberal Party took a sharp
shift to the right at its fifth
convention last week which
enced a new leadership
structure dominated by
Energy Minister Yitzhak
Modai. Modai . emerged as
chairman of the Presidium,
a newly created post which
has become the party's
power base.
Veteran leader Simha
Ehrlich, the deputy prime
minister, retainedthe party
chairmanship but that
office has been stripped of
all authoritative functions.
Minister-Without-Portfolio
Moshe Nissim was elected
chairman of the Executive,
a post of less authority than
Modai's.

Ne'eman notes that the
ultimate proposals may be
impractical or too expensive
at present. However, "with
the rise in price of fuel and
constant drop in oil re-
serves, at least some of the
acoustic properties should
be dynamically controlla-
ble, with the control so pro-
grammed as to obtain the
well-being of occupants
while exploiting to the
maximum available energy
from outdoors and waste
energy from indoors, but
using as little as possible
exhaustible energy."

last 20-30 years there
have been many ad-

technology but we hardly

"The main change in the
new approach is that in-
stead of the static char-
acteristics of the building
envelope, we suggest a com-

Dynamic Solar Shell," says
Ne'eman. "According to this

Leaves, Branches
Fill Sanctuary
on Shavuot

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

Some synagogues observe
the practice of decorating
the sanctuary with green
leaves or branches on
Shavuot.
This practice reminds the
worshippers of a strange
miracle that occurred in the
environment at Mount
Sinai when the Torah was
given. The mountain was
located in a bleak wilder-
ness where there was very
little cultivated grass.
When the time for Revela-
tion came close (i.e., the
time we celebrate as
Shavuot) the mountainside
suddenly became green and
appeared to be well culti-
vated.
This was a symbol of the
contention that Torah can
turn a little cultured person
into a fertile source of learn-
ing if he would dedicate
himself to the work of God.
Others claim that the
green decorations indi-
cate that Jewish learning
has to be cultivated and
developed in order to be
effective as a tool for the
spiritual advancement of
the Jewish people. The
Torah has often been
compared to a "Tree of
Life" for this very same
reason.
A tree requires planting,
pruning and care; so does a
Jew and his Torah.

ILLEGAL ARABS IN U.S.: There are today about
two million Christian and Moslem Arabs in the United
States, according to government estimates. Arab publica-
tions in the U.S. speak of three million Arabs in this coun-
try. Only 15 years ago the entire Arab population in the
U.S. was estimated to be about 250,000 persons.
Where did this tremendous jump come from?
The largest part of the Arab population is composed til
illegal immigrants. They entered this country as students,
tourists and visiting businessmen, and never left. They
received their limited visas from the American consulate in
Saudi Arabia — where large numbers of Arabs from Pales-
tine are working as laborers — from Iraq and other Arab
countries where they were admitted on a temporary basis,
and even from the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem. Many
Arabs living in Israel had only to cross the Allenby Bridge
into Jordan to get U.S. temporary visas from the American
consulate in Amman.
Not all Arabs who swelled the Arab population in this
country during the last 15 years are Palestinians. There
are among the illegal Arab immigrants also a substantial
number who carry genuine passports of recognized Arab
countries. The latter came here by the thousands on stu-
dent visas and as visitors who are looking for business
connections with Americans. Among them there is also a
large proportion of Palestine Arabs who managed to find a
way to secure passports from Arab countries even though
they are only residents and not citizens of these countries.
Palestine Arabs are considered throughout the world
as "refugees." The issue of "Palestine refugees" dominates
the United Nations. The press in this country and in other
countries speaks of them as "Palestine refugees." However,
Arabs from Palestine who live now in large numbers in
other Moslem countries, do not consider themselves "refu-
gees." Under the influence of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, they speak of themselves as "Palestinians."
They insist on being classified as Palestinian&
This takes them in a way out of the category of refugees
who are entitled to American visas as the U.S. government
interprets the term "refugee." They were not driven out
from Palestine; they left the country at their own initiative.
THE NEW REFUGEE LAW: The New Refugee Act
of 1980, passed by Congress and signed into law by
President Carter on March 17, changes the definition of the
term "refugee." It significantly broadens the criteria for
designating refugees. It may open a new avenue for Arabs
seeking to enter the U.S. as refugees.
The new legislation leaves it, however, to the
President to specify who could qualify as a refugee. One key
provision of the new law increases the number of regular
flow of refugees allowed to enter this country from the
current total of 17,000 to 50,000 for the fiscal years of 1980,
1981 and 1982. The new legislation continues the provision
of the previous law giving the authority to the Attorney
General to issue Iparole visas" to more than 17,000 refu-
gees into the U.S., if special circumstances made this pro-
cedure necessary.
However, it transfers the parole authority from the
Atorney General to the President, and outlines a detailed
procedure for consultation with Congress before it can be-
come operative.
INDICATIONS IN WASHINGTON: Jewish leaders
are welcoming the new law which establishes a com-
prehensive policy for the admission of refugees and for
effective government aid in their resettlement in this coun-
try.
