The question of Israeli politi-
cal parties and their impact
through the WZO on the Agen-
cy's activities and appointments
was also dealt with in far too
simplistic a manner. While most
• Diaspora leaders would support
"depoliticization" of the Agency
and the overhaul or elimination
of the party key system in the
appointment of Agency depart-
ment heads, this does not mean
that elimination from the
Agency framework of those
- familiar with and involved in
the Israeli political system
would necessarily be a good
thing. The Agency works with
the government of Israel in a
very real way every day on real
programs. Politics and an
understanding of how to use the
Israeli political system to pro-
mote the objectives of the
Agency are and always will be
important. The important issue
for all of us is to not let political
considerations adversely impact
the effectiveness of Agency pro-
grams nor impede progress
toward agreed-upon goals.

My most serious concern,
however, relates to an inference
or nuance, if you will, underly-
ing the entire series that can
best be exemplified in the title
you have given to the series it-
self, "Where Do All Our Dollars
Go?" This gets very close to a
belief that the dollar contribu-
tions of Diaspora Jewry are
some kind of charity, and by
corollary, we the donors have
some kind of a unilateral right
to decide how those dollars will
be spent. This is neither fair nor
right.

Responsible Diaspora Jewish
leadership and our Israeli coun-
terparts do not view our contri-
butions as charity, but rather as
a privilege that allows us to
participate in nation building.
This does not give us — Dias-
pora Jews — the right to decide
how the money will be spent or
use it as a "hammer" to get
things our way. It does give us
the right (or the duty) to par-
ticipate with our partners in de-
veloping priorities and programs
that would best serve the needs
of the populations we deal with.
The concept of charity and veto
power over expenditures in Is-
rael by Diaspora leadership is
demeaning to our partners in Is-
rael and, indeed, to us in the
Diaspora, and strikes at the
very foundation of what we are
trying to do together.

I do not condone the abuses or
excesses cited — they need to be
changed. It is unfortunate, how-
ever, that the many important
and legitimate concerns raised
in the articles were, in my view,
blunted in some measure in the
minds of thoughtful people by
the omission of needed back-
ground material and a balanced
and fuller explanation of what
the Agency is, how it works, and
what it is doing today and hopes
to do in the future.
