THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The Jerusalem Post: Israel's International Newspaper

By JANET MENDELSOHN

........... ..

JERUSALEM — It is
read by the Minister of Edu-
cation of Botswana as well
as the Evangelical Brothers
of New Guiena. As a daily
newspaper it could be mis-
taken for an intimate,
small-town, eight-page
daily, yet it is in fact as
politically influential as the
global hot spot where it is
located. In short, the
Jerusalem Post, Israel's
only English language
daily, fills a multitude of
needs for people in Israel
and around the globe.
Local readers comb its
pages for national televi-
sion listings and concert
schedules as well as local
and world news. An inter-
national array of politicians
glance through its pages
with their morning coffee in
the hope of understanding
Israeli politics, which have
such a resounding effect on
the rest of the world. And
even Israel's former Prime
Minister Golda Meir once
complimented the paper by
saying that "for many Jews
and non-Jews abroad, the
Jerusalem Post is the Bible
for what's happening in Is-
rael."
Today, nearly 50 years
since the Post first came rol-
ling off the press, the
Jerusalem Post interna-
tional edition is read by
subscribers in 90 countries.
On the local level it is Is-
rael's fourth largest daily

well as to the outside

In the early days, circula-

on an English-language
newspaper published in
Jerusalem.

Tensions grew before the
founding of the state, and in
February 1948 a terrorist's

office of the Post causing
death and damage but

his fingers into the pond and
come up with virtually odor-
less water.
To be sure, recycling sew-
age water for crop irrigation
is not unique to the Negev.
Nor is it even a new notion.
But according to Rosens-
tein, the 7,000 dunams
(1,700 acres) under cultiva-
tion around Beersheva are
the only croplands in Israel
which use undiluted
waste-water the entire
year.
Moreover, Ram's wheat
yield is the highest in the
country.

Akzin Is Named

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Binyamin Akzin, a profes-
sor of political science at the
Hebrew University, has
been elected president of the
Friendship Associations, an
umbrella organization
encompassing all of Israel's
friendship associations with
other countries.

In response to those
who persist in turning up
their noses at such a con-
cept, Rosenstein stoutly
maintains that there is no
health hazard at all.
"The only endangered
species here are the crops,"
he says with a grin. "In
addjtion to assorted viruses
and bacteria, the water car-
ries an excess of nitrogen,
which causes a low rate of
sugar content whenever we
grow sugarbeets. Wheat
and cotton are also af-
fected."
In any event, the "edible"
crops are either earmarked
as seed or they are indust-
rially boiled or treated in
some way before ending up
on the dining table.

With the advent of
statehood, the news-
paper also underwent a
series of broad changes.
No longer was there a
need to crusade to pre-
sent the voice of Palesti-
nian Jewry. They were
now the "establishment"
and close to those con-
trolling the reins of gov-
ernment of the Jewish
state. Even though the
Post is considered to be
the voice of Israel, it has
often exerted its inde-
pendence and printed
biting criticisms of the
powers that be.
Not all changes were so
positive. With the depar-
ture of the British from

Waste-Water Crops in the Negev

BEERSHEVA — Bring
water to the Negev, it was
always said, and the desert
will bloom. Sound advice
under ordinary circum-
stances, but not if there is
scarcely any water to bring.
That presents a differnt
challenge.
Paul Rosenstein, a
member of Kibutz Revavim
since 1970, has in his own
quiet way taken up that
challenge. He oversees a
crew of 15 which routinely
recycles the major part of
Beersheva's waste-water
into nearby fields to produce
bumper crops of cotton,
wheat, alfalfa and seed
potatoes.
On an experimental
basis, cucumbers, onions
and buttercups are raised
for subsequent propagation.
Although the idea may
seem repugnant, the
three million cubic
meters of water received
each year by Ram Co.
(the name combines the
first letters- of the two
kibutzim involved in the
project, Revivim and
Mashabe Sadeh) are ac-
tually quite clean. A trip
to the storage dam, lo-
cated just east of
Beersheva's city limits,
proves the point.

this time they were of jubi-
lation. "State of Israel Is
Born" the banner headline
proclaimed in the May 16,
1948 edition of the paper.
When Jerusalem was de-
clared the capital of Israel
in 1949 the paper changed
its name to the Jerusalem
Post to show its solidarity
with the capital. It remains
the only national news-
paper not based in Tel Aviv.
