The Jewish News is to be
Il applauded for its efforts to abort
i '-' the use by the Free Press of the
phrase, "Palestinian East
: Jerusalem" (April 12). To have it
go unchallenged would have been
tantamount to accepting it as a
valid label for part of the capital of
Israel.
But why stop there? Too many
--, Jews and self-proclaimed Zionists
fail to see that political reality is
;-, framed by the words and titles
used. For example, if we call the
territories the "West Bank" in-
stead of Judea-Samaria, then we
perpetuate the image of Arab
-, ownership, i.e. the "West Bank of
1 the Hashemite Kingdom of Jor-
dan." Actually, since 1967, there
is a new political reality of Jewish
liberation which the Arabs and
others cannot accept, that is the
re-emergence of a Jewish Judea-
Samaria.
So it is if we talk of "Palesti-
"3
nians." Obviously there are Arabs
who self-identity as such. But if
we Jews and Zionists accept their
terminology and identification,
we promote the mythical Arab
image of a "dispossessed people"
striving to regain "their lost
homeland" (i.e. Israel) from the
' "occupiers" (i.e. Jews). That myth
certainly should not be promoted
by those who proclaim their
Zionism.
And so it goes. There is no
"east" Jerusalem since it is our
united capital. There are no
"occupied territories" other than
the Jewish land the Arabs still

possess. The cities of Hebron and
Sh'chem are Jewish cities with
Arab populations. And the term
"Palestine" is the slave name im-
posed on Eretz Yisrael by Roman
and Arab invaders.
It is about time, long overdue,
that we Jews stopped using Arab
terminology which makes us
thieves. We have stolen nothing.
It all belongs to us.

Holocaust Wounds

Although 40 years have passed,
now is not the time to heal old
wounds or seek reconciliation
with the systematic annihilation
of the Jewish people perpetrated
by the Nazis.
President Reagan may be cor-
rect in asserting that there are
few in Germany today who can
recall the tragedy of the
Holocaust. But Mr. Rejigan cer-
tainly is of the generation in
which the memories should be
most deeply etched. And there are
countless many in my own com-
munity who bear the scars of the
Nazi camps.
If the passage of time has made
it possible for us to equate the
murderers with the victims then
it is high time that the events of
the Holocaust be rediscovered and
that old wounds be opened. For we
cannot forget that these events
occurred in our lifetimes and
could easily recur in our chil-
dren's lifetimes.
