peaceful future for Palesti-
nians if the involved na-
tions will keep in mind some
basic wisdom, is mistitled.
It should have been cap-
tioned `Mea Culpa.'
"You admit that be-
cause of 'America's pro-
test' General Sharon was
held back from complet-
ing the job he started in
Lebanon against Yasir
Arafat. But you omit the
major role of America's
communications media
in helping to inspire and
lead that very protest. It
was our government that
arranged for the ter-
rorists to leave Lebanon,
fingers raised in 'V for
victory' signs, protected
between rows of Ameri-
can Marines and multi-
national troops.
"But it was the media — •
press, radio and television
— that wholeheartedly
supported Washington in
saving Arafat and his PLO
last year in Beirut.
"You acknowledge that
Arafat's imminent depar-
ture from the scene —
thanks now to Syrian ambi-
tions and Arab silence —
proves that the Palesti-
nians' plight has never been
the central problem for the
Arab world.
"Of course, Israel has re-

peatedly made the same
point: that the central prob-
lem is Arab refusal to rec-
ognize Israel, not the Pales-
, tinians' predicament. But
the. American press, along
with others, has long been
deaf to this argument, re-
jecting its implications.

"Your editorial im-
plicitly condemns the vir-
tual indifference of the
media to innocent civi-
lian deaths in the Pales-
tinian camps outside
Beirut. One must wonder
why you did not see fit to
spell out the reason for
the vastly different reac-
tions, and its meaning.
"At long last, you allow
that Arafat's defeat makes
clear there has never been
an Arab nation, an amorph-
ous concept claimed by Arab
nationalists to justify al-
most continuous warfare
against the Jewish state.
But would it have been too
upsetting to recall the
number of times Israel
pleaded, in vain, that its
presence was not the cause
of the Middle East's great
turmoil, that the real
reason was internecine war-
fare endemic to the Arab
world?
"You conclude that the
solution to the Palestinians'
tragedy rests with 'wise

Hungarian Version of Warsaw
Ghetto Revolt Woefully Lacking

By DR. ALBERT BELTON

"Es A Varsoi Getto Fel-
kelt" by Katalin Szokolay
(Kossuth Publications,
Budapest) deals with the
Uprising in the Warsaw
Ghetto in April 1943. It is
quite unique and signific-
ant for the mere fact that it
has been published in
Socialist-Marxist Hungary,
which usually shies away
from Jewish topics. It fol-
lows the official Party line,
minimizing the enormous
magnitude of the Holocaust.
It was published in the
"Popular History" series
and it bears the Communist
trend, generalizing the
catastrophe b sa nig the

Jews were not the only vic-
tims of the Fascist blood-
bath; they were just part of
the world-wide "class
struggle" between the im-
perialist, fascist warlords
and the peace-loving work-
ing class of liberal minded
elements.
It plays down the
documented facts of hatred
and hostility. of the Poles
towards their fellow-
citizens of Jewish heritage.
There are a great many
important facts suppres-
sed by the book.
Another oddity is that in
the 272 notes referring to
sources, 99 percent direct
the reader to Polish lan-

guage works. This oddity
keeps up in references to
documents,
diaries,
memoirs,
testimonies,
statements, etc. left by
Nazis like Ribbentrop,
Borman, Hans Frank, etc.
She cites them from some-
one else's Polish language
book.
This method makes the
book suspect of using secon-
dary sources, not the origi-
nals, which are undoub-
tedly available for scholars,
both in Warsaw as well as in
Budapest,
Although the book, from
cover to cover, obediently
follows the party line, as-
cribing all actions, all
heroism and bravery to lef-
tist parties, and just reluc-
tantly acknowledges the
death -defying heroism of
the handful of ghetto fight-
ers. It simply -ignores the
thousands upon thousands
of first-hand books, essays,
memoirs, etc. published in
the West and in Israel.

Palestinians' who, 'encour-
aged by wise Israelis,' would
`practice their own politics,
find their own leaders and
produce their own ideas for
living in peace with Israel
and Jordan.'
"Yet when Israel went
to extraordinary lengths
three years ago to initiate
and nourish just such a
development on the West
Bank, American editorial
condemnation for Israeli
`intrusion' upon the polit-
ical rights of West Bank
Arabs helped in the long
run to discourage and
destroy that mission. The
appointment of Prof.
Menahem Milson of Heb-
rew University to lead the
project, stimulating the
creation and growth of
local, autonomous village
leagues, was perhaps as a
result, in vain.
"There's a lesson to be
learned from all this: That
America's 'wise' opinion
molders should have, and
still can, come down harder
on Washington, insisting
that Saudi Arabia, Jordan
and other such friendly re-
calcitrants effectively sup-
port the Camp David ag-
reements. It is still not too
late, and it may make
worthwhile the heavy price
already paid for the mis-
takes."
