THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Jlerzog Gives Tough Policy
Speech at CJF Sessions

(Continued from Page 68)
comparative impunity,"
Herzog declared.

He noted that when in
recent years terrorists at-
tacked Jewish installa-
tions in Western Europe,
killing and wounding in-
nocent passersby, "the
Jewish world, indeed the
whole world, awoke to a
realization that the cruel
and malignant malady of
anti-Semitism had
spread wider and had
penetrated deeper than
had previously been cre-
dited."
The gravity of the situa-
tion is intensified, Herzog
said, because "these evil
elements which brought on
the Holocaust and brought
the world to the most ter-
rifying war that mankind
has known, did not raise
their heads" as long as the
Holocaust and the destruc-
tion of Europe 40 years ago
was a "real memory."
But now that the
Holocaust and the war
"have receded from the
memory of much of man-
kind, even in those countries
which were destroyed and
decimated by the advancing
Nazi armies; now that the
bulk of the youth of the
world knows nothing about
the Holocaust — the scene is
set for the forces of evil
which brought this
Holocaust on the world, to
raise their heads," Herzog
said.
Parallel to "the onslaught
of the anti-Semitic coalition
of fascists, left-wingers,
Communists and Arabs to
which we are witness, is the
process of disinformation
afoot in the Free World, •
which is misleading the
world not only about Israel
and our conflict and distort-
ing Israel's image, but is
presenting developments in
the Middle East to the world
in such a manner as to give
rise to gross errors and false
political evaluations on the
issues of the most vital im-
portance to the security of
the free world," Herzog
charged.
This process of disin-
formation, in which the
media plays a role, has
resulted in an image "in
which Israel's alleged in-
transigence is seen as en- .
dangering the peace of
the world, and at the
same time the terrorist
activities of the PLO are
endorsed as liberation
movement activities,"
Herzog said.

What Israel does, there-
fore, whether successfully
rescuing hostages in En-
tebbe, or engaging in ac-
tivities which are unpopu-
lar in the world, such as the
war in Lebanon, "inevitably
reflect, in their turn, on the
Jewish population" posi-
tively or negatively, the Is-
rael chief of state said. "This
places a very heavy respon-
sibility on us in Israel, and
hence, in my view we cannot
and dare not ignore the ef-
fects of our actions and
policies on world Jewry."
Herzog pointed out that

"it is true that certain as-
pects of Israeli society, as
they come to expression to-
day, are not always best cal-
culated to arouse the en-
thusiasm of world Jewry .. .
but while many of these as-
pects of Israeli society are
overemphasized, the very
impressive positive aspects
of our society are frequently
ignored."
Herzog called upon world
Jewry to be aware of new
challenges "and act in order
to strengthen the future of
the Jewish people both here
and in Israel." The Jews in
America and Israel together
must rise to meet these
challenges so that in years
to come, "the historians and
our successors will look
back and say that we did not
betray the trust put in us by
thousands of years of
Jewish history," Herzog de-
clared.

Israeli Critical
of CJF's Site

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
An aide to Defense Minister
Moshe Arens implicitly
criticized American Jewish
leaders for not holding the
annual General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish
Federations (CJF) in Israel.
The aide, Nachman Shai,
Arens' press spokesman,
raised that matter with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
in defending Arens' appear-
ance Saturday night before
a convention in Jeruslaem
of the Moral Majority, a
right-wing evangelical
Christian group from the
United States headed by
Rev. Jerry Falwell.
Shai said Arens was
"fully aware" of the con-
troversial nature of the
Moral Majority, the fun-
damentalist coalition which
supports strongly conserva-
tive domestic policies in the
U.S. and an uncompromis-
ing anti-Soviet foreign pol-
icy. But he decided to ad-
dress the gathering
nevertheless in apprecia-
tion of their holding their
convention in Jerusalem,
Shai said.
Noting that this coincided
with the CJF's 52nd Gen-
eral Assembly in Atlanta,
Ga., Shai asked "What stops
the federations meeting an-
nually in Jerusalem?" The
Moral Majority, he said,
brought more than 500
committed supporters of Is-
rael to Israel's capital and it
could fairly expect an Is-
raeli leader of Arens' sta-
ture to appear before it.

High Praise

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — A
high-ranking British per-
sonality, who asked to re-
main anonymous, told
Yediot Ahronot:
"The Israeli Army is a
most important factor in
safeguarding the interests
of the Free World. The Free
World should consider itself
lucky that such an armed
force exists. If the Israeli
Army did not exist, we
would be compelled to
create it."
