Headlined Names:
Forgotten In A Year?

CARL ALPERT

Special to The Jewish News

N

ames make the news.
Some names appear
and reappear with
great frequency. Others, new
names, spring into the
headlines, enjoy a brief
notoriety, and then subside
into obscurity, or perhaps do
indeed remain on the new
scene ever thereafter.
It is our annual Rosh
Hashanah custom to review
the new names which receiv-
ed top billing in Israel during
the past year.
Moshe Nissim, Minister of
Finance, last January pa-
tiently and persistently push-
ed through major elements of
his economic reform program,
overcoming objections from
special interest groups on the
right and on the left. In re-
cent months he continues to
stand fast against more
pressures, intent on main-
taining Israel's new, hard-won
economic stability, and on
preventing the return of
runaway inflation.

General Dan Shomron,

remembered as commander of
the Entebbe operation, was
selected as new Chief of Staff
of Israel's Defense Forces,
after some obvious competi-
tion among the top brass. He
is expected to place even
greater emphasis than before
on use of modern science and
technology in buttressing
Israel's security.
Ran. Suissa, Commissioner
of the Prison Services, known
for his liberal policies toward
the inmates of Israel's jails,
was compelled to resign after
considerable pressure charg-
ing mismanagement and im-
proprieties. His situation was
not helped by the arrest of his
son on charges of smuggling
heroin, and by charges that
he sought to influence
witnesses in defense of his
son.
Mordecai Vanunu has
been charged with revealing
alleged secrets of Israel's
nuclear potential to a London
newspaper. His sudden disap-
pearance from England, his
conversion to Christianity,
and his surprise appearance
in an Israeli prison, all con-
tributed to making the
Vanunu case one of the sensa-
tions of the year.
That is the list for this year.
How many will still be
remembered a year from now?
By way of test, how many do
you remember of the follow-
ing, which were top new
names of 1986? Moshe Bejski,

George Bush, King Hassan of
Morocco, Jonathan Jay
Pollard, Rafael Recanati,
Rita, Natan Shcharansky,
Avraham Shalom, Kurt
Waldheim and Chava Yaari.
John Demjanjuk. Is he or
is he not Ivan the Terrible, the
Ukrainian guard who spread
terror among the Jewish in-
mates of the notorious
Treblinka death camp? For
many months the prosecution
presented its case, and the
defense is now seeking to
show that it is all a case of
mistaken identity, and Israel
is holding the wrong man.
Nizar Hindawi is now ser-
ving a 45-year jail term in
London, having been found
guilty of duping his pregnant
girl friend into boarding an
Israel-bound El Al plane,
after placing in her suitcase
a live bomb which was in-
tended to destroy her and all
aboard. Evidence showed that
he was under instructions
from Syrian embassy officials.
Ernst Japhet, once a
kingpin in Israel's banking
circles, has left the country
under a cloud after it was
revealed that his salary, pen-
sion and severance pay ran in-
to many millions of dollars.
The expose resulted in a
shakeup of the Israeli bank-
ing system.

KINGSLEY

EDITOR OF THE NEW REPUBLIC

Susan Shoshana Miller,

converted to Judaism by a
Reform rabbi in the U.S., was
denied registry as a Jew in
Israel under a ruling from the
Orthodox-dominated
Ministry of the Interior.
When the High Court of
Justice ruled that she must
be registered, the Minister
resigned — but in the mean-
time the object of all this at-
tention had left the country
and returned to Colorado. The
reverberations still echo on.
William Nakash, wanted
by the French for the 1983
murder of an Arab in Besan-
con, was subject to extradi-
tion. However, Israel's
Minister of Justice held off for
many months, claiming that
Nakash's life would be in
danger in a French jail.
Israel's High Court overruled
him.
Izat Nafsu, a member of
the loyal Circassian minority
in Israel, and an officer in the
Israel army, had in 1980 been
found guilty of serious securi-
ty offenses, and had been in
prison ever since, constantly
insisting on his innocence.
New evidence revealed that
his "confession" had been ex-
tracted under mental and
physical pressure, and he was
at last released.
