Arab states" or else "we will
all learn to recite the al-
phabet without three let-
ters, P-L-0:" The result:
The Arab League contrib-
uted at least $200,000 to
Jesse's group.

Rev. Jackson, in a long
interview with editors and
reporters of the Washington
Post, accused American
Jews of "hounding" him and
"attacking" him. He said

the campaign against him
was "too orchestrated to be
accidental" and he blamed
Jews "in general." So far, he
said, he has turned the
other cheek, refused to con-
demn or strike back, but
others are neither as
patient nor as forgiving.
Sooner or later, he said,
someone will retaliate. That
sounds like Jackson is
threatening to incite vio-
lence 'against his fellow
Americans that are Jewish!

If many Americans follow
the lead of Rev. Jesse
Jackson and excuse and
condone the PLO violence,
then America is in danger.
As Bayard Rustin, black
civil rights leader said,
"Any links to the PLO, no
matter how limited, would
give legitimacy and tacit
approval to the rule of the
gun."

NJ Mayor Chastizes Jackson

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Mayor Kenneth Gibson of
Newark, N.J., who is the
head of the Rev. Jesse
Jackson's Presidential
campaign in that state, has
repudiated Jackson's de-
famatory remarks about
Jews as "Hymies" and New
York.as "Hymietown" . and
the warning by Black Mus-
lim minister Lc uis Far-
rakhan that if Jews "harm
this brother (Jackson) .. .
this will be the last one you
harm."
In a letter to Nathan
Perlmutter, national direc-
tor of the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith, Gib-
son said "I emphatically de-
plore the Jesse Jackson in-
sulting references to the
Jewish people. I'm sure you
realize that black people are

able to think for themselves
and the great majority of us
do not subscribe to negative
ethnic, racial or religious
references and speeches."

Gibson stated, "It is very
frustrating to me as a sup-
porter of Jesse Jackson's
campaign to have read and
hear of his insensitivities,
ignorance or possibly worse.
I have tried to talk to him
personally by phone since
the admitted derogatory
references to Jews but was
only able to talk to a cam-
paign leader. I expressed
my serious concerns about
those remarks and I intend
to discuss these issues" with
Jackson.

Regarding "the implied
threats" by Farrakhan,
Gibson wrote that these "do

not represent the thinking
of myself or other blacks
who know the difference be-
tween righteousness and
rhetoric." Farrakhan made
the threats while address-
ing a Chicago throng, with
Jackson at his side.
The Newark mayor wrote
his letter after he read a
copy of Perlmutter's column
on Jackson's "Hymie" refer-
ence to Jews. The news-
paper column, which wel-
comed Jackson's apology for
his remarks, called for his
"clear-cut censure" of Far-
rakhan's remarks.
Gibson stated: "Your rea-
soned and reserved re-
sponse to these incidents
are commendable. I'm not
sure if I could be as reserved
in my response if I were in
your position."

JERUSALEM (ZINS)
— Geographically, Central
America, the area between
Mexico in the north and
Colombia in the south, com-
prises the tiny British col-
ony of Belize and six coun-
tries: Guatemala, Hon-
duras, El Salvador,
Nicaragua, Costa Rica and
Panama.
Historically, however,
Panama was never politi-
cally associated with the
other Central American
countries. Until it achieved
independence in 1903,
Panama was part of Colom-
bia and its links were with
South America. For this
reason, the Jewish roof
organization of the area is
called the Federation of
Jewish Communities of
Central America and
Panama (FEDECO), an af-
filiate of the World Jewish
Congress (WJC).
Today this area, particu-
larly its northern part, is
subject to political violence
that threatens the survival
of its Jewish communities.
About 22 million people live
there, among them between
8,000 and 9,000 Jews.
Certain conditions are
common to most of the
countries: essentially ag-
ricultural economies;
widespread poverty and
illiteracy; concentration
of wealth in the hands of
a few; large Indian or
mestizo (person of mixed
Indian and European,

usually Spanish ances-
try) populations; eco-
nomic exploitation of
varying degrees of sub-
tlety; political power tra-
ditionally personal
rather than institutional;
limits on civil rights and
political freedom; strong
Catholic Church influ-
ence generally support-
ing the status quo.
An additional factor from
a Jewish point of view is the
existence of large com-
munities of Christian Arab
descent that have on occa-
sion shown a responsive-
ness to Arab League and
PLO propaganda.
El Salvador, whose popu-

lation density is one of the
highest in Latin America
and its per capita income
one of the lowest, is in a
state of civil war. Political
unrest also marks life in
Nicaragua.
Honrduras, by compari-
son, seems an island of
quiet. It is much less de-
nsely populated and social
and economic contrasts are
not as great.
Guatemala is subject to
increasingly frequent
outbreaks of violence.
Costa Rica, with a popu-
lation predominantly of
European, mainly Spanish,
origin, has a traditionally
liberal government.

Study Sees Jewish Father
Back in Traditional Role

NEW YORK — The
modern-day role of the
Jewish father has changed
greatly during the past de-
cade, according to a recent
study sponsored by the
American Jewish Commit-
tee's William Petschek Na-
tional Jewish Family Cen-
ter.
The study, authored by
Prof. Chaim Waxman, as-
serts that as more Jewish
women enter the work force,
family life is undergoing
radical changes. The Jewish
father, who until recently
served primarily as an
educator and transmitter of
religious and ethical values

.

within the family unit, may
soon be returning to this
role, Prof. Waxman claims.

The study, titled "The
Jewish Father, Past and
Present," cites "increasing
evidence that the tradi-
tional division of men's and
women's domains has been
unsatisfactory to many men
as well as many women."
The author suggests that
Jewish fathers should reas-
sert their authority as
values-shapers by actively
participating with their
children in holiday activi-
ties or through Jewish
communal affairs.
