LETTERS

Wayne L. Feinstein

Executive Vice President
Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit

. . . Problems
Still Remain

Kudos to the editor for his
bringing to our attention Rabbi
Finkel's report on Ethiopian
Jewry (July 26). Recently, I
brought some of these facts to
light at a Board of Governors
meeting of our Jewish Welfare
Federation. The executive vice
president, Mr. Wayne Feinstein,
obligingly followed through
without delay, seeking more in-
formation. The reply was some-
what similar to the one by Mr.
Levene in your article and,
frankly, I am not too happy.
We cannot allow what hap-
pened to the Sephardim to be
repeated with the Ethiopian
Jews. The original immigrants
on "Operation Magic Carpet"
were a devout community. The
descendants are Israel's dis-
cotheque, drugs and dregs
society.
Absorption left a lot to be de-
sired and is being repeated by
anti-clerical and secular Israelis
responsible for much of the agi-
tation in the conversion issue.
Experience is the best teacher.
Let us learn from our past ex-
perience and not make the same
mistake twice.

Rabbi James I. Gordon

U.S. Assistance
To The PLO

President Reagan tells the
American Bar Association that
we are at war with interna-
tional terrorism, that we are
dealing with "a new interna-
tional version of Murder Inc.,"
and he calls the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization one of the
"world's most vicious terrorist
groups." It was a year ago that
our Secretary of State George
Shultz said the PLO and its al-

Ethiopian
Immigration...

Elsa Solender's article in the
July 26th issue about the prob-
lems of absorption for Ethiopian
Jews was an excellent and sen-
sitive treatment of a very com-
plex matter. Gary Rosenblatt's
shorter article interviewing Sam
Finkel of Baltimore recounts a
problem that did exist at the
beginning of the massive immi-
gration last winter and last
spring.
Last April, a member of Fed-
eration's board raised a question
about facilities for religious
practice and the cultural needs
of the new Ethiopian immig-
rants. We probed this issue
through the Council of Jewish
Federations and the United Is-
rael Appeal, and I locked into it
myself while in Israel the last
week of June.
Without commenting on the
current controversy between the
Ethiopian Immigrant Associa-
tion and the Chief Rabbinate of
Israel, we're satisfied that both
the Ministry of Absorption and
the Aliyah Department of the
Jewish Agency are performing
their responsibilities fully and
with great sensitivity to the
particular religious practices
and cultural needs of the Ethio-
pian olim.

lies provided "financial, logistic
and training support for ter-
rorists world-wide."
There is no denying that the
PLO is a criminal organization,
the pioneer of modern terrorism
that has carried out thousands-
of violent attacks — hijackings,
bombings, kidnappings, mas-
sacres . and assassinations. The
question is why does the Ad-
ministration let such a group of
criminals have offices in New
York and in Washington?
Doesn't that mean we condone
the rule of the gun? Doesn't it
tell people that violence and the
threat of violence against inno-
cent people is legitimate and re-
spectable?
Allowing terrorists to have
offices in America is only the tip
of the iceberg in the Adminis-
tration's most peculiar policy
towards the PLO ... The US.
Consulate in eastern Jerusalem
is notorious for its pro-PLO ac-
tivities. In fact, it is considered
a would-be U.S. Embassy to a
PLO state! That consulate ar-
ranges meetings between visit-
ing U.S. officials — including
Congressmen invited by Israel
— and supporters of the PLO.
The Middle East bureau also
supplies funds to a number of
groups in Judea, Samaria
(which they call "West Bank")
and Gaza that support the goal
of the PLO in destroying Israel,
such as pro-PLO schools ...
Senator Helms recently said,
"Obviously, it is a work of char-
ity to care for and educate or-
phans; but do they have to be
inculcated with hate propaganda
through assistance of U.S. aid
funds?" The problem, he says, is
that our State Department is
putting money in the hands of a
leadership that uses the funds to
reward PLO followers and deny
assistance to those who are not.
This is not humanitarian aid: it
is building the PLO infrastruc-
ture in Judea, Samaria and
Gaza.
The Administration does not
practice what they preach.

The C urch of the Latter Day
Saints is building "a multi-
million dollar" Mormon institu-
tion on Mt. Scopus near the He-
brew University in Israel.
The Mormons have succeeded
in tricking and/or persuading Is-
raeli government officials that
they are benign. The truth of
the matter is that they are con-
sidered to be one of the most
aggressive of Christian (sic)
missionary groups operating all
over the world. We must or-
ganize and act immediately to
stop these soul-snatchers from
