Orthodox Hurt American Aliya

is no longer "the darling" of
the American press, adding
An Israeli-born journalist that Israel "has a public re-
who is New York corre- lations problem, but the
spondent for an Israeli government pays no atten-
newspaper has expressed tion to it." Shamir traced
the opinion that the aliena- this , situation back to David
tion of Reform and Conser-, Ben-Gurion, who said it
vative Jews from Israel be- was not important what the
cause of Orthodox control non-Jews were thinking,
over religious matters" is but "what the Jews are do-
costing Israel aliya by such ing."
Shamir said Israel had a
American Jews.
That view was contained good press in 1967 when the
in one of a series of com- Six - Day War turned every
ments made by Shlomo Israeli soldier "into a
Shamir in a question-and- superman."
"It is no longer so," he as-
answer article in a recent
issue of "Reform Judaism," serted, "and don't forget the
the official publication of oil crisis. Even if Americans
the Uniori of American He-
brew Congregations.
Shamir, correspondent dur-
ing the past seven years for
Haaretz, is also executive
director of Histadrut Ivrit of
America.
Declaring he considered
this "a big problem and very
complicated," Shamir added
that Israeli Jews, who he
described as "either reli-
gious or completely unob-
servant," do not "give the
matter much thought."
Shamir said the Israel
government gets very
angry about American
Jewish leaders who
criticize Israeli policy,
"but the people are di-
vided. Some say it is
good, others believe if it is
not a money matter, you
have no right to
criticize."
Shamir agreed that Israel

believe it has nothing to do
with Israel, they are still
unconsciously thinking
that they have to suffer for
the Jews."
Asked whether American
Jews were turning against
Israel, Shamir replied "not
against," but added "they
are losing their respect" for
Israel. He said this was evi-
dent in the United Jewish
Appeal where, he said, fed-
erations are asking "for a
bigger cut of funds for
domestic needs. The big
fight about support for Rus-
sian emigres who choose not
to settle in Israel is another
example."
