alienating the vested in-
terests and powers that be?

Zionism liberated the Jew-
ish people from their own
powerlessness, and also from
the rule of a small group of
unrepresentative and self-
appointed leaders, respon-
sible to no one except them-
selves. The provacative in-
tervention of the fundraisers
in the election process of the
Zionist movement demon-
strates that in Jewish life no
less than any place else,
democracy must be continu-
ally defended.

Other candidates include

anessa Redgrave, the
British actress who
champions the PLO,
has gained a civil rights vic-
tory in her court battle with
the Boston Symphony
Orchestra.
Redgrave filed a $5 million
lawsuit in Boston in 1984
after the orchestra cancelled
her contract as narrator for a
production of Oedipus Rex.
Now a U.S. circuit court has
reversed the ruling of a
federal district court, which
had not allowed consequen-
tial damages for the cancella-
tion of the Redgrave contract
with the symphony. The cir-
cuit court also reversed the
district court on the applica-
tion of the Massachusetts
Civil Rights Act.
Orchestra management
now faces a thorny financial
problem, an many familiar
with Redgrave's deep affec-
tion for the PLO and hostili-
ty toward Israel are disturb-
ed by the new court
developments.
It's true, but hard to unders-
tand, that when Redgrave
signed the contract, an or-
chestra spokesman said the
management was unaware of
her pro-PLO crusade and the
anger it generated in Jews
and many others who are
disgusted with the PLO's ter-
rorist activities.
Inconsistencies in the
Redgrave story help explain
the wrath she creates.

Robert E. Segal is a former
newspaper editor as well as
director of the Jewish community
councils of Cincinnati and Boston.

Redgrave: Inconsistent

Example: Deep concern was
voiced over her selection for
the role of Auschwitz sur-
vivor, Fania Fenelon, in Ar-
thur Miller's TV feature Play-
ing for Time. Although
Redgrave had produced three
pro-PLO documentaries by
1980, when the Fenelon
drama appeared, Miller
defended the actress. "She
doesn't know the meaning of
anti-Semitism," Miller said.
"She backs the PLO and op-
poses Israel because of her
hatred of capitalism."
Query: Since when is Israel
wedded to capitalism, and
does Redgrave feel guilty
when she puts her huge ear-
nings in to capitalism's
shrine, the bank?
In district federal court, the
jury held the civil rights of
the actress had not been pro-
ven violated. It should be
noted that the symphony
management did pay the
$27,500 performance fee as
well as the $100,000 conse-
quential damage cost.
