Alibi for Terrorism

MSU Prof. Michael Rudner

"There's only one way to deal with terrorism. Deal with the cause —
the festering problem of Palestinian homelessness"
(Detroit News, April 21, 1986)

Betsy Barlow, U-M Center for Near East Studies

"root causes" of the "troubles in the Middle East" is that the
"Palestinians. . . now have no state of their own"
(WDET-FM, July 16, 1986)


An independent Arab Palestine already exists. It is the
Kingdom of Jordan.

The "Palestine" THESE ARE THE
promoted by the ACTUAL BOUNDARIES
Arab states

The British Mandate, 1920

This map is a lie.
It shows only 20%
of Palestine.

The Jewish National Homeland,
Now Jordan (the Arab Palestine)
and Israel (Jewish Palestine)

The British set aside the Palestine east of the Jordan River solely
for Arabs. Jews were-forbidden to live, own property or visit there.
The Kingdom of Jordan, created by the British in 1946 in the
eastern part of Palestine, still enforces that racist policy.

The LIE of "homeless, stateless Palestinians"
is an ALIBI for the murder of thousands of
innocent people in Europe, Lebanon and Israel.

Jewish Campaign, as well as
increase involvement of new
leadership and "instill some ex-
citement" into the Campaign.
"It's not like having to
rebuild a community,"
Hermelin told The Jewish
News. "We have a marvelous
leadership structure here. Peo-
ple don't just work for one year
and then leave. They continue
to be involved. The continuity
of leadership is very strong!'
Sherman is determined to get
more women involved in the top
leadership of the Campaign
and the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion. "We are way behind other
cities in this aspect. I don't
want to get too parochial about
this, but it is something that we
have to do!'
lb build the leadership base,
and excitement, the two
chairmen say they will stress
Campaign and United Jewish
Appeal missions to Europe and
Israel. They have already lined
up nine Detroiters for the
Prime Minister's Mission to
Israel this summer, which is
open to Campaign contributors
of at least $100,000. They are
also working on the September
mission to Romania and Israel
for $10,000 contributors. Addi-
tional missions are planned
and the two chairmen have
pledged that either Sherman,
Hermelin or both will join each
mission. "Hermelin brings the
salami and I'm bringing the
bread," Sherman joked.
Hermelin also wants to draw
more on the leadership of local
Jewish agencies to boost the
Campaign ranks and "broaden
the base of- involvement
through education and
recognizing leadership!'
The two chairmen see sup-
port for Israel, the resettlement
of Soviet Jews, and Sherman's
Project Renewal as major needs
to be addressed by the next
Campaign. And they are going
to direct the effort while wear- .
ing numerous other communi-
ty hats. Sherman is chairman
of Project Renewal for the
United Jewish Appeal. The
seven-year effort has provided
funds to rehabilitate
neighborhoods and give new op-
portunities to persons in
selected Israeli communities. In
addition, she is a national UJA
vice chairman and a member of
the boards of the Jewish Agen-
cy for Israel and Detroit's
Jewish Welfare Federation. She
is a past president and Cam-
paign chairman of Federation's
Women's Division and was first
chairman of the UJA Young
Women's Leadership Cabinet.
She is also a leader of Detroit's
American-Israel Chamber of
Hermelin is international
chairman of State of Israel
Bonds, president of the
American ORT Federation, vice
president of the World ORT
Union and a board member of
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee. He is

Hermelin also chairs the
Mich _ igan Cancer Foundation
and serves on the boards of
Children's Hospital of
Michigan, the Detroit Inter-
faith Roundtable and Michigan
Opera Theatre.
Hermelin says he is just "put-
ting on another jacket?' For
Sherman, "It will be a very in-
teresting year" in an all-out ef-
fort to increase support for the
Allied Jewish Campaign and
the 70 local, national and inter-
national Jewish agencies that
it funds.
"We hope to have an exciting
Campaign," Hermelin said.
"Having the first woman chair-
man in Detroit history is an ex-
-citing statement. We want to
increase women's roles.
"I'm looking forward to work-
