THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Ileaders Forum

The New York Times' re-
ent editorial, "Toying with
‘usalem," states:
America thinks that until
hie city's future is
egotiated, East Jerusalem
`occupied' territory." This
pports the Arab claim
which is utterly without
ustification.
'Throughout the millenia,
ferusalem
was never the
- .
:apital city of any except the
fewish people whose right
hegemony was upheld by
he League of Nations
andate. East Jerusalem
like the West Bank) was
like
illegally by Jordan
_1-Ito for 19 years barred
mtry of Jews and Chris-
' a.ns and destroyed every-
dng Jewish in it.
By what rationale can
cast Jerusalem be termed
:o's mpied" — meaning that
'srael does not possess in-
enable right to sole
legemony? How do you
egotiate" its future? Cer-

tainly not by a UN so heav-
ily dominated by an anti-
Israel majority. By election
among residents? A secret
ballot may not be secret
enough to save Arabs from
punishment by terrorists
for favoring Israel.
The irony is that the
Arabs recognize that their
welfare has been enor-
mously enhanced in all re-
spects under Israeli ad-
ministration. Vote for a re-
turn to notorious Arab inef-
ficiency and corruption?
If "East Jerusalem is
`occupied' and borders and
status are unsettled," it is
because U.S. policy is sub-
ordinate to the powerful
influence and pressures of
big-business obeying the
dictates of their Arab cus-
tomers. Congress should not
be cowed into submission to
immorality!

Nineteen of us — all
mericans, some jour-
aIists — sat around a large
)eige-covered table in the
,unference room of the
kmerican Embassy in Man-
la, the Philippines, wait-
ng to be briefed on South-
bast Asian matters by the
)olitical, economic and cul-
tural experts on the em-
sy staff.
(A short distance down
'he hall was the ballroom in
which the Japanese War
crimes trials were held.)
First we were welcomed
y a tall, slim young man,
lack of skin and handsome
f–mien, who began like
his:
"My name is Claud
oung. I am the Assistant
ultural Affairs officer.
is is my first foreign post,
ut I have been here for
hree years. I speak Manda-
rt Chinese, Hebrew,
rench, German and, of
ourse, English."
At the word "Hebrew" my
urnalistic ear picked up.
uring the two-hour brief-
ng by the experts I kept
wondering how this young
man (I later learned he was
I -nly 29) could have learned
Hebrew: And why?
As soon as the briefing
Sias over I took young Mr.
into a corner of the
I Young
.
oom and pumped him.
= Ile was born in Detroit.
His uncle is Coleman A.
(Young, who has been De-
troit's mayor since 1973.
After the 1967 riots in De-
troit, as part of the outreach
program, the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Met-
rpolitan Detroit, at that

sponsored an educational
program for 10 young
people, three or four of them
blacks. Claud Young, then a
grammar school boy, was
one of those selected. He

said he was the only one of
the blacks to finish the pro-
gram.
In 1969, under a schol-
arship from the Jewish
Agency, he went to, study
Hebrew for a year at the
Beit Rutenberg Ulpan in
Haifa. There he perfected
the Hebrew he had learned
in Detroit so well that he
was engaged to teach He-
brew at Beit Rutenberg for a
good part of the year 1972-
1973. (He was then only 17.)
As he concluded his story
he said:
"I am very much attached
to Israel. I follow all the de-
velopments over there very
closely. My highest hope is
that after my tour of duty
here in the Philippines is
over, maybe, somehow, I
can get assigned to Tel
Aviv. That is my dream."
Speaking of Detroit, he
said:
"I have a sister over there.
When Detroit was having
its worst spell of winter sev-
eral months ago, my sister
balled me on the phone and
told me the temperature
just outside her window was
20 degrees below zero. I re-
plied that when she called I
was watering some flowers
growing on the balcony of
my apartment. She replied:
`I don't want to hear about
it!' " •
