Project under way to restructure
and re-evaluate priorities of WZO
New York (JTA) — The World
Zionist Organization is presently
engaged in a determined process
,of analysis and soul-searching
that will result in a "revolution-
ary restructuring of the WZO, de-
signed to make it responsive to
the current needs of' the Jewish
people," Leon Dulzin, chairman of
WZO Executive, said follow-
ing an "historic" three-day con-
ference earlier this month of a
"We recognize that the WZO as
presently constituted is in-
adequate — indeed obsolete — in
Piiccessfully grappling with the
pressing challenges now confront-
ing the Jewish people," Dulzin de-
In order to transform the WZO,
it has enlisted foremost Jewish
thinkers and experts — aca-
demicians, and religious and
L.onist leaders — into regional
Think Tank Committees in the
Jnited States, Latin America,
Europe, the British Common-
;ealth and Israel, Dulzin said.
These committees, like the one
which met in New York, are
engaged in devising a new WZO
strategy and structure to enable it
to be an effective instrument of
the Jewish people, he pointed out.
- He said that in Israel, the cen-
tral Think Tank Committee for-
mulated six critical issues which
were discussed at the New York
"Son of C. Trojan"
meeting: the Jerusalem Program,
the duties incumbent on the indi-
vidual Zionist, 'a framework for
those who make aliyah, equality
of status for all constituent organ-
izations, methods for individual
affiliation with the WZO, and the
intensification of the democratic
"With the benefit of the
analysis, counsel and recom-
mendations of our Think Tank
experts we are determined to rad-
ically transform our movement,"
Dulzin said. "Initially, Zionism
was a movement to establish the
State of Israel and to save Jews.
Now we must face the task of sav-
ing Jewry from the serious in-
roads of assimilation, toss of
Jewish identity and intermar-
riage. We must also face the fact
that although there has been a
landmark acceptance of the
Jerusalem Program by the lead-
ers of American Jewry, the influ-
ence of the WZO in Diaspora
Jewish life has diminished."
He said the essential changes
are required "in the Zionist
structure to permit a broader
foundation to be laid as a base for
building a democratic and
ideological Zionist movement
that will encompass the entire
spectrum of Zionist thought. The
new structure should give em-
phasis to education and ideologi-
cal causes instead of to politics

Even if they had crossed from
Jordan, this did not indicate Jor-
danian complicity or knowledge,
as the Jordanian authorities try
to stop infiltration from their
area, fearing Israeli retaliation.
In Lebanon during the Yom
Kippur weekend an IDF patrol
killed one guerrilla and wounded
and captured another near
Mashara, south east of Lake Ka-
roun. There were no Israeli
casualties in the exchange of fire.
There were no Israeli casualties
in an earlier - clash with an IDF
patrol near Marekeh.
Another guerrilla was killed by
a South Lebanon army patrol
near Jezzine, after the patrol ch-
ased a suspicious car making its
way to the Awali River.

L Washington (JTA) — The
House has approved a bill that
would eliminate reparations re-
ceived from West Germany by
Hiiiocaust survivors from the in-

i'lity for Social Security pay-
-Rep. Hanry Waxman (D-Calif.)

nual income $648 over the eligi-

"I do not believe that when
Congress passed the Social Secu-
rity Act it intended to deny wel-
fare and health benefits to a poor
person who otherwise would be
eligible were she not receiving
token payments froth Germany
for the tortures she underwent at
the hands of the Nazis," Waxman
told the House.
Burt Hoffman, a spokesman for
Waxman, said that although the
Senate could not pass the bill be-
cause of the tight schedule before
adjournment, the legislation has
