Looking at the Jewish World

By WARREN FREEDMAN

The American Jewish
community can hardly take
pride in the fact that less
than 1 percent of American
Jews have made aliya to Is-
rael . . . perhaps 50,000 be-
tween 1948 and 1980.
Interestingly, the first
American ,Consul in the
Holy Land, Ward Cresson,
converted to Judaism in
1845, made aliya, and then
established an agricultural
colony near Jerusalem.

eighth largest customer, for
Israel's four million people
buy more from the U.S. than
do India's 700 million
people.
Israeli - American trade
hit $3.8 billion in 1981. Fur-
thermore, American busi-
ness has invested in Israel
more than $1 billion.
Americans are in oil
exploration, genetic-
engineering and metal-
finishing in Israel. Inci-
dentally, American - Is-
rael trade gives the U.S. a
surplus of $1.2 billion.

Pope John Paul II, despite
four years of invitations to
visit Israel, has seen fit to
journey to Mexico, Brazil,
Ireland, the U.S., France,
Germany, India, the Philip-
pines, Portugal, Britain,
Argentina and various
countries in Africa.
He has referred to Jews
by the vague phrase, "Seed
of Abraham," so as not to
create disfavor with the de-
scendants of Ishmael. He
has called for the recogni-
tion of the "legitimate
rights" of the Palestinians
and wants Jerusalem to be
an international city.
On the other hand, Pope
John Paul II has been a
great humanitarian, sensi-
tive to the needs of the op-
pressed. But on Oct. 2, 1979,
at the United Nations, he
recalled the agony of Au-
schwitz without a reference
to its Jewish victims.

Irving
, Professors
Abella and Harold
Troper of Canada, in
their new book "None Is
Too Many," have de-
scribed th'e callousness of
Canadian government
officials in excluding
Jewish refugees before
and during World War II.
The authors, relying on
unpublished documents and
archives, revealed private
efforts by Canadian leaders
to block immigration of
Jewish refugees - 7n a
"menace" to Canada's
ethnic, social and moral in-
tegrity. In particular, F.C.
Blair of the Immigration
Dept.; Ernest Lapointe, an
associate of the Prime
Minister Mackenzie King;
and Vincent Massey, the
Canadian High Commis-
sioner in London between
1935 and 1946, were ac-
cused.
During that period of
time only 5,000 Jews made
it to Canada . . . compared to
14,000 from Bolivia and
14,000 from Chile.

Did you realize that you
can telephone Israel di-
rectly? First dial 011 or 01,
then Israel's code of 972,
then the city code (Haifa 4,
Jerusalem 2, Ramat Gan 3,
Tel Aviv 3, etc.), and finally
the local telephone number.
Remember that the time
difference is seven hours.

All who have meditated
on the art of governing
mankind have been con- ,
vinced that the fate of em-
pires depends on the educa-
tion of youth.

Here's why.

Free gifts worth getting. From now through
March 31, you get your choice of a top quality gift every
time you rent a compact or larger car from Hertz. And
only Hertz gives you so many to choose from. Rent just
once and choose from seven free gifts including a
Cartier leather credit card holder or 6 Titleist golf
balls. Or continue to save the coupons you get with
each rental and redeem them for bigger gifts including
a Cartier leather portfolio or a 12" black and white
RCA TV set.
Guaranteed Economy Fares:" We guarantee our
Economy Fare rates in Florida through April 4, 1983.
So the rate we quote you is the rate you get.
Guaranteed Pricing. Just ask and Hertz will
tell you what your total rental charges will be before
you go.
No charge for mileage. Hertz never charges a
penny for mileage. No matter how far you drive.
No drop-off charges within Florida. With Hertz,
there's never a drop-off charge for cars rented and
returned in Florida.
Vacation certificates worth up to $1300. Starting
Jan. 1, 1983, when you rent from Hertz for a week or
longer, you get books of certificates worth up to
$1300 in discounts on meals and attractions through-
out Florida.
Free travel benefits with our Frequent Renter
Program. Enroll in the Hertz Frequent Renter
Program and every time you rent from us in the U.S.
you'll earri points toward free airline tickets, hotel
stays, and use of a luxury car.
Widest selection of cars. In addition to our econ-
omy and family size cars, Hertz has everything from
roomy vans and huge 8-passenger station wagons to
luxury cars and convertibles.
24-hour emergency road service. If you run into
something unexpected, it's comforting to know that
Hertz has 24-hour emergency road service.
Infant seats. Only Hertz can confirm infant seats
at every location in Florida. Just let us know 48 hours
in advance, and we'll have it there waiting with
your car.
Optional Collision Damage Waiver. At Hertz
if you don't think you want our Collision Damage
Waiver, you don't have to take it. With some cheap
car rental companies, if you don't pay for their
Collision Damage Waiver, you have to leave up to a
$300 deposit.
More on-airport locations. Hertz has many conve-
nient locations throughout Florida including counters
inside all major airports. So you can get your vacation
off to a fast start.

Together that adds up to what you should expect in a car rental
—value, quality, convenience, choice, and security. In other
words, more than just a car.
So if you're flying to Florida, rent from Hertz. And get every-
thing that goes with #1. For advance reservations and details on
rates, call 800-654-3131 or your travel consultant.
