Rabbis Criticize

Continued from Page 5

"It is therefore more confus-
ing and disturbing to us that
your public letter to the
Secretary of State should slap
the wrists of the leaders of the
government of Israel by
equating the Jew-hating in-
transigence of the_ surroun-
ding nations to the hesitancy
of Israel to give away its ter-
ritory in exchange for a less
than undcertain peace."
The rabbis concluded their
letter with the statement that
"While we fully share your
frustration and concern for

this region and its peoples, we
strongly disagree with the
medium that you have used
that can only hurt the State
of Israel and our people"

Rabbi Gruber, who wrote
the Council letter, said the
letter was brought before the
Vaad where it received
unanimous approval. He ex-
plained that the rabbis decid-
ed to write Levin because
they were confused by his
decision to publicly praise
Shultz and chastise Shamir.

FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 1988

Allen Pollack, a former
American professor of history
who makes his home in
Israel, told a group of Allied
Jewish Campaign volunteers
Sunday that the picture
painted in the press of Palesti-
nian children fighting with
sticks and stones masks the
reality of serious injury to
many Israeli soldiers, some of
them no older than their
attackers.
The dilemma of Palestinian
moderates, said Pollack, is in
knowing that Israel is
basically moral β€” and not be-
ing able to stop the rioters.
"As long as this situation is
in the hands of extremists,
the Palestinians will wind up
with nothing."
Pollack, who was in-
strumental in establishing
American Professors for
Peace in the Middle East on
600 college campuses, ad-
dressed a "Countdown to
Closing" breakfast meeting
Sunday.
Noting that the Campaign
officially closes in a little over
two weeks, Chairmen David
B. Hermelin and Jane Sher-
man said workers have
received pledges of $23.2
million to date. They must
still reach 4,000 persons who
contributed last year.
Pollack's Gaza/West Bank
scenario for the coming
months starts with an Israel
election by November.
Whoever wins (he predicts
Likud), Israel will again seek
out negotiating partners.
Because the Palestinians and
Jordan can be expected to
decline, he said, "We'll pick a
date and act by ourselves, of-
fering autonomy to 1.5
million Arabs" without giv-
ing up any territory.
Pollack sees a dire situation
for the Arabs once Israel
leaves them on their own.
Moslem fundamentalists will
battle for turf with the PLO

β€” much like Lebanon.
The Arab summit con-
ference proved that the
Palestiniaii-problem is not of
the highest priority for their
fellow Arabs. The Gulf war
and Moslem fundamentalism
are of far greater concern,
said Pollack.
He assured his listeners
that it's "legitimate to feel
uncomfortable about what
you're seeing on television.
But don't be fixated by it.
Fundamentally, Israel is a
moral society. If the area were
still ruled by Jordan, this
rioting wouldn't be going on
now By the third day, the Jor-
dan army would go in, wipe
out the rioters, and it would
be over. We can't do that."
The 1988 Allied Jewish
Campaign will conlude with
a party for all Campaign con-
tributors on April 11 at Adat
Shalom Synagogue.
Set for 6:30 p.m., the even-
ing will feature singer
Theodore Bikel. There is a
charge for the evening.
Sherman and Hermelin
have scheduled a final "before
the closing" telethon, 6:30
p.m. Monday at United
Hebrew Schools.
"Our goal this year," said
Hermelin, "is to record as
many pledges as possible by
April 11. This way we will
have an accurate number to
work with when it comes time
to allocate Allied Jewish
Campaign funds."
Sherman added that when
a contributor makes a pledge,
they have the option of defer-
red billing. "They'll have un-
til December to pay it off," she
said.
A veteran stage and screen
personality, as well as an ac-
complished folk singer, Bikel
will be bringing new material
to Detroit this year, and will
be accompanied by his
musical director, Elliot
Finkel.
