Milton Goldberger

Memphis, Tenn. (JTA) — Mil-
ton W. Goldberger, former editor
of the Hebrew Watchman, the
local Jewish weekly, died May 26
at age 79.
He worked with his brothers,
Leo and Emanuel Goldberger in
the family publishing enterprise
until 1955 when Leo Goldberger
reassumed his post as editor, in
addition to his work as managing
editor.
At that time,
Milton
Goldberger opened his own busi-
ness, Reporter Publishing Co.,
which is housed in Memphis with
other Goldberger family
enterprises, including Tri-State
Press and the Hebrew Watchman.

"The FCC loftily asserted that
broadcast speech is protected
under the First Amendment, no
matter how offensive. Fair
enough," Perlmutter said, "but is
it offensive or is it a calculated
warning of intention to murder to
broadcast, 'We're going to cleanse
our land, We're gonna do it with a
sword, and we gonna do it with
violence.' "
Perlmutter was referring to one
of a series of racist and anti-
Semitic broadcasts aired over
KTTL in 1983 by William P. Gale,
a leader of Posse Comitatus, a
group of vigilante bands that ad-
vocates "war" against federal and
state government.
In a related incident, Black
Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan
is bringing his anti-Semitism to
new and larger audiences, ap-
pearing before friendly crowds on
college campuses and in other
public forums, according to the
ADL.
"In view of this, Farrakhan and
the Nation of Islam remain of
serious concern because of the
dangers inherent in public appe-
als to bigotry and racism."
Perlmutter said in a recent report
from the research and fact-finding
department of the ADL's civil
rights division.
The report said: "Farrakhan
cloaks his anti-Semitism in reli-
gious symbolism, innuendo and
threats." It cited recent remarks
by Farrakhan at the State Uni-
versity of New York at Old
Westbury, Long Island, where the
Black Muslim leader charged
Jews with threatening the Rev.
Jesse Jackson's life and killing
Christ and said they would be
"punished and die" for those acts.

U.S. Company

New York (JTA) — An Ameri-

ranging as computer systems and

The company, PEC Israel Cor-
poration, has helped launch liter-
ally hundreds of new Israeli com-
panies, including Elron Elec-
tronic Industries and Scitex cor-
poration, two of the leaders of Is-
rael's burgeoning high-tech in-

Daddy,

This is our second Father's Day without you and
instead of getting easier it's much harder. There
isn't a day that goes by without us needing you.
We miss sharing all our good things with you,
even sharing our troubles because you were always
there to guide us and make sure we did what was
right for us.
You always gave us so very much of yourself and
never asked for anything in return, only that we be
happy.
We miss your loving smile, your warm and loving
embrace and your constant good humor. But most of
all we miss the wonderful father who every day
should have been Father's Day for you.
You will forever be loved very dearly in our
hearts.

All our love forever,
Patty and Terry
