Jewish Silence' Over Lebanon

By RABBI MARC
TANENBAUM

(A Seven Arts Feature)

Is the American commu-
nity guilty of "the moral
crime of silence" regarding
Israel's military action in
Lebanon?
That question has
haunted large segments of
American Jewry, especially
many of its religious and
communal leaders. Perhaps
the clearest statement of
the Jewish moral dilemma
over Lebanon was ex-
pressed by Albert Vorspan,
vice president of the Reform
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, and director
of its Commission on Social
Action of Reform Judaism.
Writing in a recent Op-Ed
column of the New York
Times, Vorspan identifies
himself as a deeply commit-
ted Zionist who applauded
•Prime Minister Begin's

genuine sacrifice for peace
with Egypt. He also said..
that Israel's moving across
the border to smash the
•PLO, a lawless, bloody in-
ternational Manson gang
was not only justified but
necessary.
But Israel's army push-
ing into Beirut has cost
heavily in death and suf-
fering. While many
Jewish leadeils have spo-
ken out against the need-
less death of civilians,
most have not. Why?
Vorspan says that most
Jews have remained silent
because of the double
standards inflicted on Is-
rael. Who judges Iran and

Iraq where 80,000 troops
have been killed and some
200,000 wounded, more
people decimated than were
lost in-the entire invasion of
Lebanon?
It is not easy, Vorspan
adds, to dump on Israel in a
world in which Arab rejec-
tionism, United Nations
lynch mobs, Western lust
for Petrodollars, Soviet
malevolence, and constant
thrashing by the media re-
present profound dangers to
Israel's long-range survi-
val.
When the world deals
fairly with Israel, American
Jews will be freer to go pub-
lic in their self-criticism.
