Now Is Time
For Lebanon

Editor, The Jewish News:
Now that the PLO has
been stricken with defeat
in Beirut, and by dissen-
sion from within by Libyan
and Syrian adherents hos-
tile to Arafat, the Soviet
Union and Cuba, pending
developments, remain si-
It is time the Lebanese
government should insist
that the PLO, Syria and Is-
rael withdraw their armed
forces. Israel has already
agreed to do so if the others
If Syria and the PLO re-
fuse to budge, then Lebanon
has the authority to warn
them, "If you delay with-
drawal from Lebanon for
more than 30 days, we will
recognize Israel as a
friendly and peaceful na-
tion, the same as all other
nations." It would help both
Lebanon and Israel eco-
nomically, industrially and
financially, and help bring
new industries and em-
ployment for the refugees
and others. It may even pro-
vide for better camps for the
refugees and opportunities
to work.
The PLO, with its ter-
roristic actions, have for
many years blocked the
road to peace. Why not
open the gates of peace
and restore law, order
and prosperity in one of
the most beautiful na-
tions in the world?
Lebanon needs a climate
of peace and mutual under-
standing so that its citizens
can live out their lives in se-
curity, regardless of race,
color or creed, under their
vines and fig trees in tran-
quility and peace in a free
and independent nation.
Blessed are the
peacemakers for they shall
be called the children of

(15 Minutes from West Bloomfield)/

At least six German
Nazis and six Ukrainian
police in uniform arrived on
motorcycles at the office of
the Jewish Committee for
the Domrowitza Ghetto.
They said their orders had
to be filled immediately,
with no delay.
The said 25 young, beau-
tiful girls from the ghetto
had to be brought to the
police station located off
Shoshana St. They said the
girls, 14-18 years of age,
would clean the building
and scrub the floors. This
was a lie.
The Nazis and the Uk-
rainians wanted the girls
for their pleasure. The
brutish barbarians raped
these youngsters. It was a
tragedy for the children,
their parents and the
whole ghetto.
Prayers were heard in the
ghetto all night, but the
parents believed that God
didn't hear their prayers.
The next day the innocent
young girls were loaded on a
truck. Some were very ill.
On Elul 14 they were shot to
death in the Sarney Ghetto.
I am an eyewitness.
This statement is dedi-
cated to a special case, to the
memory of 25 young Jewish
girls who were murdered in
occupied Europe. Many "or-
ders" like this one were car-
ried out in every ghetto.

rabid anti-Jewish attitudes
of King Hussein and those
of his grandfather, King
Abdullah. '
While the article noted
that there is no dis-
agreement between Jews
and Arabs regarding the
account of the progrom
at Hebron in 1929, "the
question over which they
differ," states Bernstein,
"is whether, after the
passage of more than 50
years, the Jews have the
right to move back in."
The author of the article
apparently fails to rec-
ognize the hypocricy of
Arab thinking which de-
mands that Palestinian
Arabs be allowed to re-
turn to their homes but
grants no such right to
the Jews of Hebron.
Aharon Gross is the
eighth murder victim of
Arab terrorism in Hebron
during the last three years;
the time has come for the
government of Israel to im-
plement full Jewish rights
to Hebron as well as the
entire regions of Judea,
Samaria, Gaza and the
Golan Heights.
Only when these areas
are fully integrated with
the state of Israel will such
PLO-inspired acts of mur-
der against Jews be halted
in Hebron and throughout
the administered ter-

weddings were done pri-
vately, with no publicity.
Indeed, one was performed
at a tiny ceremony in a dis-
tant city.
Surely more than one
Yom Kippur has passed for
Rabbi Nelson to have truly
forgiven and forgotten.

WXYZ Charge
Is Explained

Editor, The Jewish News:
It is regrettable that a
misinformed public finds it
necessary to refute alleged
charges of anti-Semitism
against WXYZ-AM Radio
personality Mark Scott.
Neither in articles pub-
lished by The Jewish News
nor in the letter sent to
WXYZ Radio Operations
Manager Michael Packer by
the Jewish Community
Council and the Anti-
Defamation League has
Mark Scott been charged
with being anti-Semitic.
Had those who have made
comments on the airwaves
and who have written let-
ters in defense of Mark Scott
phoned the Council or ADL
offices regarding the con-
tents of The Jewish News
articles and the letter to
Packer, they would have
discovered that the sup-
posed accusation was non-
Rather, the references
to both Mark Scott and
Kevin Joyce pointed to a
"community perception"
regarding the talk-show
program content and the
permitted use of the air-
waves by bigots with
which the two agencies
became concerned.
The defense mounted on
behalf of Mark Scott was
unnecessary and served to
distort the intent of our
agencies' actions.

Hebron Put
in Perspective

Editor, The Jewish News:
On July 12, the New York
Times published a story by
Richard Bernstein concern-
ing recent events in the city
of Hebron. It is to be noted
that Bernstein's reference
to Hebron as an "ancient
Arab city" is historically in-
accurate. Hebron was the
capital of Judah in the days
of King David and one of the
four holy cities of the Jews
long before the Arab inva-
sion of Palestine in the 7th
Century BCE.
Jews have lived con-
tinuously in Hebron from
Biblical times to 1929 when
survivors were driven out as
a result of an Arab massacre
which left 69 dead and over
a hundred wounded. The re-
sult — an entire ancient
Jewish community left
homeless, and forced to seek
refuge in the equally an-
cient Jewish community of
Even after the 1929 mas-
sacre, Jews continued to
make pilgrimages to the
Cave of Machpela where the
patriarch Abraham is
buried as is his son Issac and
grandson' Israel and their
respective wives. Only from
1948-1967 when the
Hashemite Kingdom of Jor-
dan illegally annexed Judea
and Samaria were Jews for-
bidden to reside in or visit
Hebron — this due to the

A Reply to
Rabbi Nelson

Editor, The Jewish News:
Rabbi David Nelson's let-
ter attacking the integrity
of Lubavitch requires some
He claims that the tal-
mudic statement: "These
and these are the words of
the Living G-d," implies
that his opinions should be
given equal acceptance in
"Orthodox" circles. This
quotation refers to the
arguments of Bet Shamai
and Bet Hillel and means
that from a scholastic view-
point Bet Shamai has
validity in truth of Torah.
However, concerning law
— Halakha — the same
Talmud says, "Bet Shamai
Bimkom Bet Hillel Eino
Mishneh," in matters of
Halakha, only Bet Hillel's
opinion is to be considered.
Rabbi Nelson's views,
no matter how scholarly,
might have validity in the
realm of scholarship, but
if they contradict the
Halakha — the Shulhan
Arukh — then they re-
ceive the same treatment
as the opinions of the
Disciples of Shamai.
With regard to the em-
barrassment of Rabbi Nel-
son concerning the two "re-
done" weddings, one won-
ders at the reaction. The
