Glenn Rejects PLO, Calls for U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem

Turning to the explosive
situation in Lebanon, Glenn
noted that the U.S. Marines
are caught in the cross-fire
there. "For their sake — and
for the sake of our friends in
Lebanon — I say it is time to
end the drift in American
policy. It is time we develop
a strategy, and it is time we
clearly stated what we hope
to accomplish."
He said, however, that it
would be a mistake to with-

draw U.S. troops from
Lebanon. He warned that in
case of American troop
withdrawal from Lebanon
the Soviets "will surely rush
to fill the vacuum" and
Syria will follow them.
"And we dare not forget
what all of this could mean
for the smooth flow of Mid-
dle Eastern oil — oil that
continues to fuel the
economies of America,
Europe and Japan."
But Glenn said that he
opposes and rejects "those
voices which urge us to
greatly enlarge our military
presence in that country

Glenn stated that the
Administration's efforts
should be directed now
"to break the impass in
Arab-Israeli relations."
He said he believes this
should be done in the
framework of the Camp
David accords, which
call for direct negotia-
tions among the parties.

"Unfortunately, many in
the Arab world continue to
reject this approach. They
demand a comprehensive
agreement on their own
terms immediately — and
they continue to treat Is-
rael's right to exist as if it
were some kind of bargain-

ing chip, instead of an es-
sential precondition for
serious negotiations,"
Glenn said.
"The Arabs' refusal to ac-
cept the legitimacy and
permanent existence of Is-
rael remains the greatest
stumbling block to peace in
the Mideast."
Israel, Glenn continued,
is one of America's
"strongest friends and
surest allies. Our morality
and our national security
alike demand that we pro-
tect and defend her. So let us
say it clearly and let us say
if frankly: America's com-
mitment to a free and inde-

pendent Israel will never
fail and never falter. Not for
an hour. Not for a minute,
not for an instant.

America's policy in - the
region is "lost and adrift,
with no clear idea even
where•we want to go, let
alone how to get there."

Joseph Riwash, a Nazi-
hunter and authority on the
Holocaust, has been asked
by the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police to provide
material for an investiga-
tion of Jim Keegstra, a
former Alberta high school
teacher suspended last
spring for insisting in the
classroom that the
Holocaust never occurred.
Riwash, a Montreal resi-
dent, is the author of "Resis-
tance and Revenge" which
is compulsory reading for
students of the Holocaust at
McGill University and the
University of Montreal. He
served as an investigator
with the legal department
of the U.S. Army in Ger-
many from 1945-1959. His
files were used in the pros-
ecution of Adolf Eichmann
in Jerusalem.
Keegstra, 48, taught
junior and senior high

school students in Eckville,
a small village in northern
Alberta of which he also
served as mayor. He is an
official of the Social Credit
Party which once espoused
anti-Semitism views but
has long since renounced
them. He preached to his
classes that the Jews are the
root of all evil and con-
tended that Jesus was not a

The festival of Sukkot in-
cludes a special festive occa-
sion known as "Simha Beth
ha-Shoava," (drawing the
In the ancient Temple
people used to pour water
over the altar so that the
rains pouring down from
heaven will be blessed for
the people. It is further
claimed that during the
Sukkot holiday, judgment is
passed in heaven determin-
ing the amount and the na-
ture of the rain that will be
coming down from the sky
for the fields.
The festivities of "draw-
ing the water" demonstrate
our confidence that a good
judgment regarding the
amount and nature of the
water will be forthcoming.
Still, others claim that
the dryness of the summer
appears to be like death
while the appearance of the
water in the fall appears to
be like the world to come
and the paradise of the life
after death.
