Haig Urges Israel to Act
With Moderation' in North

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Secretary of State Alexan-
der Haig said Tuesday that
while the U.S. "understood"
the concern of Israel over
the re-arming of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion in Lebanon and in-
creased terrorist acts, Israel
and all parties involved in
Lebanon should exercise
"restraint and moderation."
Haig, answering ques-
tions before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee,
did not answer directly
when asked if he thought Is-
rael was planning to take
military action in south
Lebanon, He noted that
Philip Habib, President
Reagan's special envoy to
the Middle East, who is now
in Syria, is urging all sides
not to violate "the letter or
the spirit" of the cease-fire
across the Israeli-Lebanese
border, which Habib helped
establish last July.
"Actions on either side of
the border between Leba-
non and Israel which
exacerbate tension are not
welcome and must be
avoided at all costs," Haig
told the committee. He said
it was "too early" to say if
Habib had resolved "the
tension."

oSchindler Cartoon Protested

Editor, The Jews NeWs:
I am writing to protest the
implications of the editorial
p cartoon you carried in your
5 edition of The Jewish
— "%vs. As a dedicated and
involved Reform Jew, I feel
that the depiction of Rabbi
Alexander Schindler as
some sort of evangelical
crusader is a disservice to
• the Reform movement and a
misunderstanding of the-is-
sues involved.
The Outreach movement
was proposed by Rabbi
Schindler to face the facts of
and deal constructively
with the problem of inter-
marriage within the Jewish
community. In order to
• avoid losing the Jewish
spouse to non-involvement
and to prevent the loss of
their children to Judaism,
the Reform movement has
• embarked on a program to
talk with, work with, and
share with the couple the
importance of preserving
the Jewishness of their
household and lives. In
doing this, it is hoped that
the non-Jewish spouse will
• consider Judaism and that
the marriage will be
strengthened by both that
choice and the cohesiveness
,- of a committed Jewish
household.
I reiterate that the car-
, toon carried with it a bias
towards Reform Jews who
are committed to and in-
volved within the Jewish
community and who also
hope that Judaism remains
viable and is strengthened



by those who join the com-
munity through marriage.

Response
from JTA

Editor, The Jewish News:
Since I discuss cartoon
ideas with Noah Bee before
he submits his cartoons, I
though my reaction to your
readers' letters might expe-
dite matters.
The cartoon in no way
puts Rabbi Alexander
Schindler "to ridicule." It
attempts only to portray his
leadership role of Operation
Outreach. Would your
readers be offended by the
famous work of art showing
George Wshington crossing
the Delaware? Bee's cartoon
has the same message.
The cartoon is based on
numerous news reports
about Schindler's efforts to
reach out to non-Jews. If one
disagrees with that objec-
tive, then the cartoon might
seem inappropriate, only
because it dramatizes that
effort. But if one feels that
such an effort is worthy,
then• the cartoon em-
phasizes artistically what
Schindler has said in state-
ments.
In any event., the cartoon
presents Schindler in a dig-
nified and determined pose.

Polish Jews Receive Food

NEW YORK (JTA)
• Representatives of the
American Jewish Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, who
= left Warsaw Feb. 23 after a
four-day visit to determine
the well-being of the Jewish
community, said that the
kosher food packages which
• had been shipped into Po-
land earlier had been re-
ceived and distributed.
Henry Taub, JDC
president, and Ralph
Goldman, JDC executive
vice president, met with

'esentatives of the gov-

L, ment and the Jewish
community during the visit
and said that they found no
evidence of discrimination
by the government against
• the Jewish community.

.

According to the JDC,
there are an estimated
6,000 Jews remaining in
Poland out of a pre-
World War II population
of more than three mil-
lion. A total of 1,800 heads
of families, mostly aged
and_infirm and survivors
of the Holocaust, are
listed on the community's
welfare rolls and are
aided with the support of
the JDC.

News reports from Poland

said that Lech Walesa,
leader ofthe suspended Sol-
idarity trade union move-
ment, has been accused by
Polish authorities of having
links with NATO and
"Zionist groups," and of
plotting an "anti-
Communist crusade."

tion took office little more
than a year ago.

Israelis Spied
on 2 Dictators?

NEW YORK —An article
in The Nation on Feb. 20
claims that agents of Mos-
sad, Israel's secret service,
were placed as crew mem-
bers at various times on the
leased personal jets of Li-
byan dictator Mummar
Qaddafi and Ugandan dic-
tator Idi Amin:
Author Murray Waas
claims he uncovered the in-
formation while research-
ing Central Intelligence
Agency ties to Frank Terpil,
who alledgedly aided Amin
and Qaddafi in obtaining
arms.
Waas claims that Mossad
eavesdropped on both dic-
tators while aboard the air-
craft and learned of Qadda-
fi's efforts to purchase
atomic weapons and eight
C-130 transport planes im-
pounded by the U.S.

THANKS TO
Drs.
William Solomon, David Jacobs
David Lipschultz, James Seifer

Last month the Israel
Embassy issued a paper out-
lining how the PLO has
sought to undermine the
cessation ofhostilities along
the Israel-Lebanon border.
The paper noted that Is-
rael accepted the United
States proposal for the
cease-fire "in good faith and
on the understanding that
this would mean the cessa-
tion of PLO terrorism in
southern Lebanon, in Israel
and against Israeli and
Jewish targets abroad.",

Haig rejected the con-
tention of Michigan Rep.
William Broomfield, the
ranking minority
member of the commit-
tee, that the situation in
the Middle East has de-
teriorated. He said
foreign policy should not
be dated from the time
the Reagan Administra-

NEW YORK — The
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith has urged pas-
sage of federal legislation to
guarantee that no group of
civilians be arbitrarily
interned on the basis of
race, religion or national
origin, as were Japanese-
Americans during World
War II.

THANKS. TO YOU
