Israel Psychoanalyzed

their Land — even the honor of
the Arabs."
During the same series of
interviews, two Arab mayors
— Shakaa of Nailus and
Natshe of Hebron — informed
Reich that the Israelis were
interlopers on Arab lands and
had no rights or legitimacy.
While for Levinger the Arab
was the stranger in his house,
for Shakaa and Natshe it was
the Jew who was the stranger
in their Arab house.

Reich was in Israel during
the first trials of those reli-
gious Jews who had plotted to
destroy buildings on the Tem-
ple Mount and who had been
responsible for the bombing of
Arab civilians. He detected
among the Israelis with whom
he spoke the same kind of di-
vision of opinion on this issue
as he did on the whole political
scenario.
Perhaps the most trenchant
of Reich's interviews were
with the Hebrew University
academics, especially Ben-
Porath, an American-trained
Israeli scholar. With them
Reich raised the major polemi-
cal question animating Israeli
society — How can one con-
template giving back the West
Bank to the PLO when that
organization has repeatedly
said that this would only be
the first strategic step in re-

gaining all of "the usurped
land?"
For Ben-Porath the answer
to the issued dilemma is sim-
ple. The alternative to the ced-
ing of the West Bank to the
Palestinians is a future Israel
corroded by a loss of the spirit
which is at the heart of the
Jewish state.
"I can envision a worse
scenario," said Ben-Porath. "I
can envision a scenario in
which there is terror even
under occupation. Riots. Kil-
lings every day. And then Is-
raelis will say to each other,
`Jews have to do this or that.
It's not pleasant but the situa-
tion requires it. There have to
be mass jailings. There have to
be collective punishments. We
don't like it but we have to do
it.' So here I am again, a
grandfather seeing my chil-
dren and my grandchildren
becoming the keepers of the
population of the West Bank"
Reich does not provide any
easy remedy for the emotional
explosions which he analyZed
during his stay in Israel. He
does suggest that one possible
avenue of hope may lie in the
disengagement of the Palesti-
nian leaders from the PLO
hierarchy and a concomitant
subduing of right-wing Israeli
militancy.

Cardinal At Anniversary
Of Death Camp Liberation

Paris (JTA) — The 40th an-
niversary of the liberation of the
Auschwitz death camp was
marked by the French Jewish
community Sunday and by Car-
dinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, the
archbishop of Paris, who recited
Mass and a prayer for the
Holocaust victims in his private
chapel and later visited the
Memorial to the Unknown Jewish
Martyr.
The cardinal, whose parents
were Polish Jews, appeared de-
eply moved as he descended into
the memorial crypt where the
names of the various death camps
are inscribed. He stood with
bowed head in what seemed deep
meditation before the black
draped tomb.
Lustiger, who converted to
Catholicism in his youth, told offi-
cials at the memorial that he
wanted to pay his personal re-
spects to the Auschwitz victims.
Shortly after his elevation to hed
the Catholic hierarchy in France,
he noted in a newspaper interview
that he had lost many family
members in the Holocaust and

that he still had "strong senti-
mental ties" with Judaism.
The Jewish community in Paris
marked the anniversary at a pub-
lic meeting attended by represen-
tatives of the Polish, British and
Soviet embassies. A senior Soviet
diplomat said later, "The world
should not be allowed to forget
that it was the Red Army which
liberated Auschwitz." But he re-
fused to answer questions about
the present situation of Jews in
the Soviet Union. When pressed,
he left the meeting hall.

Lightning Strikes

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A lightning
bolt striking a high tension line
put the Hadera power station out
of commission for several hours
last week, forcing the Israel Elec-
tric Corp. to impose temporary
blackouts in various parts of the
country. The utility restored full
power by evening, but not before
the failure of traffic lights caused
mammoth traffic jams.
