Arab-Israeli dialogue

Continued from. Page 1

the Israelis and the Palestinians. "In the
zero-sum conflict, there is no middle
ground."
Bar-On said the solution to peace is by
accommodation. "We have to realize that
there are some things both sides can win.
By giving up things, you win things that
are good for both — survival and the end of
bloodshed."
But, he added, that violence and force
are not the answer. "Violence and force
cannot lead either side to achieve its own
goals. In our case (the Lebanese invasion)
stopped us from achieving anything.
"Guerrilla warfare is successful to
break the will of the other side. It can be
successful against the power that has the
option to lose. Israel has no option to lose
this war."
Despite favoring accommodation,
Bar-On found that compromise is "self-
defeating."
"This approach belongs to a phase we
are not yet at. Nobody will be happy, that's
the nature of compromise." -
Yet, he was hopeful that peace could
be achieved.
"The time has come to end the 60-
year-old bloody conflict. We are bound to
exist another 3,000 years or more. We are
bound to live next to each other. The only
way to do it is by accommodating each
other's desires, recognizing each other's
rights and recognizing each other's aspira-
tions."
Milhem, who was greeted by applause,
also denounced the Jerusalem attack.
"Nobody in his right senses approves of
killing innocent people.
"I was shocked at the news of people
being killed. These boys (the terrorists)
knew they would be killed in the streets of
Jerusalem. They may not know they're
doing damage to their cause."
Milhem told the filled-to-capacity
forum that, in essence, the Palestinians
are not getting a fair shake. "There has
been so much injustice done to the Palesti-
nians — and I am one of them." He added,
however, "I am not speaking on behalf of
the Palestinians but I am elected by the
Palestinians. They put a lot of confidence
in me. I love them."
He related the story of Isaac and
Ishmael, in which Isaac calls to Ishmael to
stop the wars and make peace. Updating
the tale, he substituted the late Egyptian
leader Anwar el-Sadat for the Ishmael role
and Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
as the modern-day Isasc. (Shamir was the
foreign minister in the Begin government.)
Milhem explained that when Sadat
made his famous trip to Jerusalem, he was
unsuccessful in gaining anything for the
Palestinians, "except Village Leagues as
leaderships and expulsions for the (West
Bank) mayors, attempts to assassinate the
mayors, confiscating more land. That's
what Ishmael got when he went to his
brother Isaac. Sadat was assassinated be-
cause he failed in his mission."
Milhem alluded to the peace plan pro-
posed by Saudi Arabian Crown Prince
Fand, which listed among its proposals
what the West Bank mayor called "a
willingness to recognize Israel." Rather
than meet to work out a solution for peace,
Milhem said former Israel Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon took the opposite tack and
ordered settlements to be built for each
item on the Saudi peace plan.

Milhem said that when the Palesti-
nians approach the Israelis on the pros-
pects for peace they are rebuffed, adding
that when the Palestinians say they will
recognize Israel, Israel won't talk to them,
and when the PLO says it will negotiate
with Israel, Israel won't negotiate with the
PLO.
Attorney Ken Knoppow, a panelist
and member of the co-sponsoring New
Jewish Agenda, approached Milhem with
the following: "There is power in the Pales-
tinian National Movement to transform
Israeli public opinion. This morning we
saw a very negative way it transformed
Israeli public opinion. What we need is a
positive way, within the power of thePNM,
not to destory Israel but to change the Is-
raeli political system and response so peace
could be achieved." Milhem was adamant
in his response: "I am against Camp David.
It is the wrong way to peace. It brings more
harm than peace." He called the Sadat visit
in vain, adding that "Sadat would have
gotten Sinai back if he stayed in Cairo and
said 'I recognize Israel.' "
Since his expulsion from the West
Bank in 1980, Milhem has resided in Am-
man, Jordan. He said, however, that he has
had no peace since 1948. "If there's no
peace for me, there's no peace for anybody."

,

We have to realize that
there are some things both
sides can win. By giving up
things, you win things that
are good for both — survival
and the end of bloodshed."

Nabil Abraham, another panelist,
who is a visiting lecturer at the University
of Michigan and an adviser to the Ameri-
can Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee,
took a calmer tone. Identifying himself as a
Palestinian American, Abraham said "The
alternative to peace is continued war,
which is in no one's favor." He said he
thought that the election in Israel of a
Labor government would put an end to
what he called "a doomsday atmosphere"
and added, "there is room to arrive at a
compromise."
In his rebuttal, Bar-On was enraged.
He blasted the West Bank mayor for not
renouncing terrorism. "But if you aren't
able Mr. Milhem to denounce terrorism
and terrorism is the only word that fits this
stupid deed of your friends in Jerusalem
this morning then that means that you
personally are not ready and not right in
your mind and heart for what I believe can
be the best for peace."
In his response, Milhem said "I want
no more holocausts, neither for Jews nor
Arabs. I want eternal co-existence for Jews
and Arabs. I'd like to see a peace that lasts
long."
Although there were no incidences of
physical violence at the forum, the Far-
mington Hills police posted a squad car in
the parking lot of the temple. The crowd,
mostly middle aged and older, with a few
young adults attending, was orderly and
calm.
Ed Pinzuk, a member of the New
Jewish Agenda, was the evening's mod-
erator.

Additional kosher cheese for NY poor

BY BEN GALLOB

For the second time in the
last 12 months needy Jews
in New. York have received
an allotment of cheese from
the federal government's
surplus food distribution
program.
On both occasions, a spe-
cial effort was made by the
Metropolitan New York
Coordinating Council on
Jewish Poverty to make
sure the surplus cheese was

certified as kosher. In the
first distribution, in May,
1983, more than 37,000
pounds of kosher cheese was
distributed through a spe-
cial project initiated by the
office of Brooklyn Assem-
blyman •Dov Hikind and the
council.
The council and Hikind
collected $6,000 to cover the
cost differential between
kosher and non-kosher
surplus cheese, according to

Menachem Shayovich,
coordinating council
president.
In February, some 75,000
pounds of kosher cheese was
distributed to more than
14,000 needy families and
senior citizens in New York.
On both occasions, the
cheese, packed in five-
pound blocks, was produced
by the World Cheese Co. of
New York. The cheese this
