It is folly for an eminent
man to think of escaping
censure, and a weakness for
him to be affected by it. All




the illustrious persons of
antiquity, and indeed of
every age in the world, have
passed through this fiery
persecution.

Center Promotes Israel-Egypt Tie

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV — Israeli.
journalist Amos Elon of
Haaretz recently visited the
Israeli Academic Center in
Cairo.
On the top floor of the
building are the apartments
of the German Ambassador
and the Egyptian journalist
Mohamed Hasnin Heykal,
who was in prison during
the Sadat regime. In the
same building lives the
brother of Yasir Arafat,
Fathi Arafat.
The Israeli Academic
Center has a sign in Arabic
and Hebrew on the
entrance. The house is
guarded by two Egyptian
policeman, but anyone can
enter.
The huge reading hall
in the center is full of
young Egyptian students
writing seminary theses
about Bialik, assimila-
tion and other topics.
There are scientists
studying the Zohar,
bulletins of the Israeli
Academy or the poetry of
Natan Zach in a literary
supplement of an Israeli.
newspaper.
An Egyptian student asks
the librarian, Mrs. Danielle
Shamir from Jerusalem,
about a book of poems by Is-
raeli writer Yehuda
Amichai, who is very popu-
lar in Egypt. Another stu-
dent is interested in a book
of the late Israeli scientist
Gabriel Beer, "Egyptian
Guilds in Modern Times."
The librarian promises to
order the book from
Jerusalem.
In the center are four bed-
rooms for Israeli professors
visiting Egypt and the office
of the director of the Center,
Prof. Shimon Shamir.
Shamir has written several
books about Egypt when
Nasser and Sadat were in
power. He has been living
with his family in Cairo for
a year.
Over his desk there are
pictures of the presidents of
Israel and Egypt — Yitzhak
Navon and Hosni Mubarak.
Navon's picture is signed,
praising the contributions
of the center toward peace.
The center was opened
six months ago during
the war in Lebanon with-
out any ceremony. It is
the only project which
was left from the cultural
agreement between Is-
rael and Egypt and one of
the signs of light and
hope from the destroyed
bilateral relations.
It is not a government in-
stitution, but a branch of
the National Academy of
the Oriental Society in
Jerusalem. Its aim is to be a
liaison between academic
institutions of both coun-
tries, to encourage and help
Egyptian citizens who wish
to study in Israel, to aid
them with information
supplied through the li-
brary, invite Israeli scien-
tists to Egypt and to create
relations between the cen-
ter and Egyptian scientific
institutions and organize
seminars in which Israeli

and Egyptian professors can
take part.
There are 11 foreign cen-
ters of this kind in Cairo.
They mostly deal with
archeology. The Israeli cen-
ter also deals with econom-
ics, history and sociology.
It employs 10 Israeli pro-
fessors and a bulletin of the
lectures is published in
Arabic and English.
Prof. Shamir, who took
leave from his scientific
work at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity in order to organize
and head the center, sees
the center as an impor-
tant mission. He told us
that there are difficult
problems and frictions
between the two people,
but he was satisfied that
this positive scientific ac-
tivity would contribute to
friendship and mutual
understanding.
Prof. Shamir said that in
Cairo there are thousands of
scientists and students who
study Hebrew and Judaism.
He found students in the
fourth year of their studies,
who speak fluent Hebrew,
whereas in Israel there are

MN Mil ME = IN MI MI On

only few students, in the
fourth year who speak
fluent Arabic. There are
Egyptian students who are
preparing doctoral theses in
the history of Israel in the
Middle Ages, the Rambam,
etc.
Through the efforts of the
center two Egyptian stu-
dents went to Israel in order
to collect material about
Judaism and the history of
Israel at the time of the
Crusades.
Prof. Shamir believes in
the necessity of an academic
center in spite of the present
crisis of relations between
the two countries. The
newspapers of the opposi-
tion in Egypt attacked the
center and termed it a "cul-
tural invasion with the aim
to minimize the Egyptian
personality."
Prof. Shamir maintains
that the presence of Israeli
scientists in Egypt proves
their great interest in Egyp-
tian affairs.

To realize the impossible
is the passion of the adven-
turer.
