THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Getting a Flavor of Israeli Life Through News Reports

By CARL ALPERT

HAIFA — They may not
have made big headlines in
Israel, and certainly were
not considered worth re-
porting overseas, but

human items in the news,
like the following, help ex-
plain why this country is
such an interesting place to
live in.
UNRULY BEHAVIOR

of fans and players alike has
now led to a proposal that
soccer referees be women.
The thinking is that the
fans will not curse them and
players will not strike them.

And if the girls are pretty
the whole atmosphere on
the playing fields will
change for the better.
THE FIRST 385 MIL-
LION new shekel coins put
into circulation in Israel in
the currency shift two years
ago were secretly manufac-
tured in Canada. They were
shipped to Israel in coded
boxes to prevent any leak of
the news.
ONE OF ITS MOST suc-
cessful performances was
played by Israel's top or-
chestra before 400 prisoners
and wardens at Maasiyahu
Prison. Zubin Mehta con-
ducted, wearing a prison
shirt.
MANY GIRLS have
earned their military insig-
nia for successful parachute
jumps, but 22-year-old
Ronit Shoval of the Israel
Defense Forces is the first
woman anywhere to qualify
as a skilled instructor. Her
pupils are all men.
PEACE IN THE
SOUTH — Say what you
will about the slow rate of
normalization in relations
with Egypt, but the fact re-
mains that all along the
Israel-Egyptian border
there is no fence, no barbed
wire, no mine fields. Peace
is a reality on the spot.
A JAPANESE TELE-
VISION crew came to Is-
rael to make a film which
would show the beautiful
and cultured Israel. It con-
centrated on education, to
demonstrate how Israel
raises its young people.
ALEX BERLYNE, in
the Jerusalem Post, tells of

the Israel radio reporter in
the north who was asked to
check on weather conditions
on Mt. Hermon. He pre-
ferred to remain in his com-
fortable home in Metulla,
but reported there were
seven meters of snow on the
peak.
Next morning, Jerusalem
asked him to do a follow-up
on the story, so he set out for
the mountain, only to be
stopped by a policeman.
"Nobody is allowed to go
any further," he was told.
"Didn't you listen to the
radio. There's seven meters
of snow up there."

IT HAD BEEN A BIT-
TER divorce trial in rab-
binic court; husband and
wife battled each other over
every issue. Everything was
finally decided except who
should get custody of the
beautiful Siamese cat.
Neither party would yield.
The cat was brought into
court, looked around curi-
ously, and then sprang into
the arms of the wife. The file
was closed.
LITTLE DID THE two
men know whom they were
attacking in Jerusalem.
The girl, a professional ar-
tist, had a good long look at
them, and then presented
the police with sketches of
her assailants, so faithfully
executed, that the attackers
were quickly apprehended.
ISRAEL'S STOCK ex-
change has received appli-
cation from Kibutz Tel Yit-
zhak to float a security issue
to raise 85 million shekels
($2.2 million) capital for a

EEC 'Regrets' Settlements

BONN (JTA) — The
European Economic Com-
munity (EEC) has ex-
pressed "regret" over Is-
rael's settlement policy and
reiterated its commitment
to the 1980 Venice Declara-
tion which called for as-
sociating the PLO with the
peace process in the Middle
East. But it stopped short of
formulating new ideas or
launching initiatives of its
own concerning the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
After a day-long meeting
of the EEC Foreign Minis-
ters on March 1, Hans-
Dietrich Genscher of West
- Germany told a press con-
ference that the next Euro-
pean summit on March 22
will take another look at the
conflict with a view to pub-
lishing a statement accord-
ing to the situation which
will then exist.

New Uniform
for Arens

WASHINGTON
Moshe Arens, the new Is-
raeli Defense Minister, has
changed uniforms as well as
jobs.
During his tenure in
Washington as Israeli am-
bassador to the U.S., Arens
reportedly wore a necktie on
all public occasions. Since
returning to Israel, it ap-
pears that he has adopted
the more casual style com-
mon in that country, wear-
ing his shirt collar open,
sans tie.

But he again reiterated
that no independent
European initiative is
planned, but rather a
document based on prev-
ious positions, notably
the Venice Declaration.
Genscher also said that
the European ministers
hoped that the results of the
PLO National Council in
Algiers would help to
broaden the peace process.

plant it operates. They are
not the first. Kibutz Mis-
hmarot already has its com-
pany listed on the exchange.
WHEN IT WAS PRO-
POSED to prohibit all El Al
flights on the Sabbath,
someone seriously
suggested that from Friday
afternoon until Saturday
evening, each week, owner-
ship of the Israel national
airline be temporarily sold
to an Arab, so it could not be
said that a Jewish airline
was flying on Shabat.
KNESSET MEMBER
Yigal Cohen has filed suit in
a Haifa court, claiming
damages suffered as a result
of his occupation. Following
what he says were several
tense and exciting sessions
of Knesset committees in
which he participated with
some excitement, he had a
heart attack. He asked that
this be recorded as an acci-
dent sustained during his
employment (as a Knesset
member) and he is therefore
entitled to compensation
from the National Insur-
ance.
