Frosh Humor

PHOTOS BY GILBO

I am very disturbed by the
"freshman" attempt at humor
( displayed in the feature Don't
Jump Mom in the March 29th
issue of The Jewish News.
The various derogatory
ti
`stereotyping of a Jewish mother is
o ill served by a Jewish publication.
Others contribute to the
stereotype and myths pertaining
to Jews — we need not do it our-
selves. While the overbearing,
martyr mother occurs in every
culture, this undesirable image

does not typify any particular cul-
ture. This article is offensive to all
of us. It does not represent any-
thing of value and is too trite and
belittling to be funny.
Your newspaper has a respon-
sibility to continue the journalis-
tic good sense of the past. This ar-
ticle and the article on "shiksas"
in a previous issue do a disservice
to the reputation established by
The Jewish News in previous
years.

Dr. Gershon Weiner

I had an interesting telephone
conversation with my son David.
He is 22, married and living in the
Southwest. David is very aware of
his heritage, of his roots, even
though he grew up in a small, lake
community south of Howell.
David has served with the United
States Navy for four years and has
seen, literally, the world from
above and below.
So, why was I troubled by his
conversation? David is now tuned
into hate. While we all concern
ourselves with what is going on
politically in Israel, Nazi sur-
vivalist groups, small but deadly,
are beginning to flourish in the
Southwest. They are having
encounters with the law which
are bringing them notoriety.

Fomenting Hate

We have to educate our chil-
dren, our next generation, that
while former Nazis are still being
sought, new extremist groups are
forming and they do have money
backing them. How else would
they survive? Where would they
get the unnecessary funding for
such a venture? Who are the un-
seen financiers of hate? This is not
television script writing nor is it
fiction. This is reality.

While it is our responkbility to
work for Israel, we must protect
ourselves here as well. We must
not think that this great land of
ours is going to be able to com-
pletely protect all of its people .. .
