Hurwitz: Don't Punish Israel
When Disagreements Arise

Harry Hurwitz, who re-
turned to Jerusalem after
• three years as Israel's
Minister of Information
here, urged the Reagan
Administration "not to
punish Israel when there
may be some disagreement"
between Washington and
"This rapping over the
knuckles, witholding, re-
leasing, sending, not send-
ing, is something that
. causes bad blood," Hurwitz
told some 50 Christian
leaders who attended a
- luncheon to bid him
farewell as he leaves to take
up his new post as adviser to
Premier Menahem Begin on
Diaspora affairs.
The Minister said that
there was no need for this
kind of behavior by the U.S.
• toward Israel because the
strength of Israeli-U.S. al-
liance lies in their "ability
to remain together in times
of difficulty."
The luncheon was held
at the American Chris-
. tian Trust, a house of
prayer directly across
from the Israel Embassy.
The house was bought
recently by a group of
Christians to ensure that
it would be occupied by
people friendly toward
Israel. One of its main
aims is prayer for Israel.
Those present signed a
scroll presented to Hurwitz -
praising him for "building
bridges between the Chris-

tian and Jewish com-
munities." It also noted that
the "ancient people of the
• book and the bible-
believing Christians of
America are being bound
together with an eternal
cord that cannot be broken."
Hurwitz and his wife,
Frieda, presented the house
with a map of the United
States showing all the
places with biblical names.
The Rev. Isaac Rotten-
berg, executive director of
the National Christian
Leadership Conference for
Israel, noted that Hurwitz
was in the U.S. during "an
era when misinformation of
Israel reigned supreme." He
noted Hurwitz's "willing-
ness to reachout and be open
to the Christian commu- -

nan, a Catholic priest and
political activist, also
praised Hurwitz for help-
ing the growing dialogue
between Jews and Chris-
Cal Thomas of the Moral
Majority and Frank Eikler
of the Shalom Fellowship
noted that Hurwitz has al-
ways been willing to pro-
vide Christian broadcasters
with information necessary
in combatting anti-Israel
Hurwitz said that during
his three years here, Israeal
has been villified as never
before in history and
blamed this on the "man-
ipulation" of the media. But
he said that Israel's image
has improved now and the
reasons he said are that the
policies of the government
of Israel are at last be;.ng
A close friend of Begin's
since 1947 and author of a
biography of the premier,
Hurwitz urged the Ad-
ministration to understand
that Begin "is the most hon-
orable gentleman in the
world; he does not tell lies
and he does not deceive."
Hurwitz said he will
take back to Israel the
knowledge that Israel is
not alone but is
strengthened by the
American Jewish com-
munity and its friends in
the Christian community.
In his new post as an ad-
viser to Begin, Hurwitz re-
places Yehuda Avner, who
was named ambassador to
Britain. Hurwitz and his
wife made aliya to Israel in
1978 from South Africa
where he had been editor of
the Jewish Herald for many
years. He came to South Af-
rica as a boy from Latvia.
