Witness from Argentina

Continued from preceding page

Tian president has served a
complete term of office. The
country, which in 1945 was
considered the eighth weal-
thiest in the world, has now
slipped to 84th according to
Rabbi Meyer.
He called Alfonsin "a
gifted, honest, great human
being of enormous talent
and sterling character. He
is a brilliant statesman, and
the key to the democratiza-
tion of the entire continent."
Meyer noted that critics of
Alfonsin have called Meyer
the "president's rabbi," but
Alfonsin didn't give way on
appointing the rabbi to the
investigating commission.
Also, anti-Semitic offenses
are no longer ignored by the
law enforcement agencies.
It will take time, Rabbi
Meyer assured his audi-
ence, to remove "the tumor
of fascism" in Argentina, -
but it can be done. One of
the things the new demo-
cratic government must
deal with is massive infla-
tion and an external debt
now amounting to $46 bil-
lion. Even servicing that
debt is almost impossible,
and, as Rabbi Meyer put it,
"Alfonsin won't pay back
the American banks and the
International Monetary
Fund with the hunger of his
people." (There have al-
ready been demonstrations
in Buenos Aires against the
IMF.) "Otherwise, the mili-
tary will just return to

power." The rabbi is hoptfu
U.S. creditors will see till
wisdom of this policy.
Rabbi Meyer is now, as hr
terms it, on "an extende(
leave of absence" fron
Comunidad Bet El, and wil
soon be assuming the posi
tion of vice chancellor of th(
University of Judaism ir.
Los Angeles. He had orig•
nally intended to spend on(

Though a Jew, a
rabbi, and not
even a citizen of

or two years in Argentina,
and stayed 25. He remains
haunted by what he saw
during those horrible years
when people vanished from
the face of the earth. He re-
scued those he could, which
is more than most people
risked. "If you're a real
rabbi you can't shut the
door. I'm not a hero — I just
tried to be a rabbi.

Western media coverage
of Lebanon war criticized

London = Western news
media covering last year's
war in Lebanon "did not
only report but were
engulfed in the socio-
psychological atmosphere
they created," it was
claimed in London this
week. "The media were
neither objeCtive nor
malicious. They were swept
away by a psychosis."
A study by two political
scientists at Israel's Bar-
Ilan University and pub-
lished by the Institute of
Jewish Affairs, says that
what was written about the
war at the time contained
"deviation from fair report-
ing" in a number of areas.
Dr. Yoel Cohen and Dr.
Jacob Reuveny conclude
that Israel should take "de-
liberate coordinated steps to
give up its role as a world
communications center, to
"radiate" less information
about itself, to return to the
normal dimensions of com-
munications of a small state
the size of Switzerland.
Progress towards that
aim, they assert, "is possible

through an appropriate
coordinated information
policy, in the implementa-
tion of which Jewish com-
munities could play an im-
portant role."
- They list several factors
which, they suggest, af-
,fected the nature of media
coverage of the Lebanese
War:
• The Palestinians gave
newsmen more access than
Arab governments did in
previous wars.
• Arabs and PLO pres-
sure on the media was
strong.
• Journalistic writing
wasemetimes anti-Semitic
and displayed double
standards.
• Journalists lacked
background knowledge and
television emphasized vio-
lence.
• Mistakes were made in
Israeli information policy.
• The image of Israeli
Premier Menachem Begin
was a negative one in the
West and some Jews spoke
out in criticism of his gov-
ernment.
