Tekoah Briefs AJC Leaders

Addressing a Detroit
audience on behalf of the
1984 Allied Jewish Cam-
paign, veteran Israeli dip-
lomat Yosef Tekoah said it
would be better to sacrifice
the uniting of Lebanon than
to allow the Soviet Union to
expand its sphere of influ-
ence in the Middle East
through its surrogate,
Tekoah, Israel's former
ambassador to the USSR,
said the hasty withdrawal
of U.S. Marines from Leba-
non would mean a collapse
of the Beirut government,
making way for a Syrian
takeover. Even a divided
Lebanon — part Syrian and
part free and pro-Western
— would be preferable to a
Lebanon submerged by
Soviet influence, he said.
A longtime representa-
tive to the United Nations,
Tekoah observed that the
USSR is the chief spoiler in
the Middle East, thriving on
the continuing Arab-Israeli
conflict. "Without a deter-
rent stand by the United
States," he said, "we can't
hope for any solution of the
Lebanon crisis. The key is
not in Jerusalem, Damas-
cus or Beirut, but in Wash-
In turn, "Washington
looks to you. What you do
tonight," he told 100
Campaign contributors,

Israel is supported by

"We shall not fail you. We
This is crucial to Israel's
trust and pray that you will
not fail us."
The gathering at which
Tekoah spoke, at Adat
Shalom Synagogue, was
chaired by Paul D. Borman,
with co-chairmen N. Brews-
ter Broder and Dr. Marvin
Siegel. Also participating
were 1984 Campaign
Chairman Jack A. Robinson
and Lawrence S. Jackier,
who spoke on behalf of Proj-
ect Renewal.
Tekoah decried all the
missed opportunities for
peace in Lebanon, oppor-
tunities sought by Israel but
rejected. For that matter,
there has never been a real
peace on Israel's frontiers,
not since the War for Inde-
pendence in 1948. "We've
known periods of truce and
cease-fire, but never a real
peace," he said.
That is why Israel must
spend more than 40 percent
of its budget on defense,
why its young men must
spend 60 days of every year
on reserve duty, why its
economy has reached such a
low point that the govern-
ment has been forced to cut
medical services and social
welfare programs, Tekoah
"Our struggle is far from
over. We must give our
strength, our resources, our
lives and the lives of our
children," he said. "Of you
we ask only your Jewish
understanding and your
Jewish heart.

Nazi Colonel's Extradition
Sought by Israel from Chile

NEW YORK — Israel
filed extradition papers
with Chile on Wednesday in
an effort to try a Nazi SS
colonel for war crimes.
Walter Rauff, 77, has
been living in Chile for 25
years, and according to a
State Department docu-
ment excerpted in the New
York Times on Wednesday,
Rauff hid for 18 months in a
series of Catholic monas-
teries on his way to South
America after World War II.
The document is the now
de-classified 1947 State De-
partment report prepared
by foreign service officer
Vincent LaVista which was
discovered by historian
Charles Allen Jr. It states
that many Nazi operatives
escaped to South America
after the war by using the
so-called "monastery

Rauff is accused of mur-

during the war by com-
manding a fleet of trucks
that gassed the victims as
they were transported.
