Visiting Israel

Continued from Page 7

With Our New T-Shirt!

There are other aspects of
Israel which cannot be really
understood from an armchair
in Farmington Hills. Rela-
tions between Israelis and
Palestinians are nothing like
relations between blacks and
whites in the United States.
Divisions between the Israeli
left and right bear no
resemblance to the conten-
tions between American
Republicans and Democrats.
Yet we American Jews feel
impelled to constantly pass
judgment on these issues. We
find it impossible to ignore
them. Yet we are working in
the dark.
There is no solution other
than to do what I did: go and
see for myself.
This year, when support for
Israel has been confused and
confounded by the Palesti-
nian uprising, the need is the
greatest for individual fact-
finding missions to the
Jewish state.
We Zionists find ourselves
in a Catch-22 situation in this
year of intifada: Jews aren't
going to Israel because they
are afraid. But if a Jew went
to Israel to see for himself, he
would not be afraid.
What is the answer? As in
all times of crisis, the answer
begins with leadership. If the
people will not go to Israel,
they must be led.
Every Detroit Jew who con-
siders himself or is considered
a leader must lead others to

Arabs Plan Offensive
Against Israel In UN

Israel. Every rabbi must sign
his congregants on a visit to
Israel. The Zionist organiza-
tions, the Jewish fraternal
organizations, the American
Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress,
the Anti-Defamation League
— all must enlist their
members to visit Israel.
Israel must become a com-
munity priority. The Jewish
Community Council — the
umbrella group for local
Jewish organizations — could
publicize and organize the
program. October, for exam-
ple, could be declared
Detroit's "Visit Israel
Month." Tours could be ar-
ranged to flood Israel with
Detroiters.
First-time visitors to Israel
should be given special honor.
The community should offer
a contest. The winner would
receive a week's paid stay in
Israel.
Leaders will overcome the
reticence of their followers by
the example they set and the
encouragement they give to
join in the project.
It is true that every tourist
dollar helps Israel. But a visit
to Israel helps the visitor
much more than it helps
Israel. American Jews have
been groping in the dark
since the Palestinian uprising
began. Seeing Israel for
ourselves is the light that will
dispel that great darkness.

United Nations (JTA) —
The Arabs are planning a ma-
jor diplomatic offensive
against Israel during the up-
coming 43rd session of the
United Nations General
Assembly. The offensive in-
cludes stepped up anti-Israel
rhetoric and pressure to pass
harsher resolutions against
Israel in view of the con-
tinued unrest in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
Diplomats said last week
that the number of countries
who will support critical
resolutions against Israel
may increase sharply in the
upcoming assembly because
of the uprising in the
territories.
A member of Israel's mis-
sion to the UN said, "It is
going to be a very difficult
session for Israel, no doubt."
The General Assembly is
scheduled to open here on
Sept. 20. Thousands of diplo-
mats and high-ranking of-
ficials, including scores of
heads-of-state and prime

ministers from all over the
world, will attend the
meetings.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres is expected to head the
Israeli delegation, which will
include — in addition to the
five permanent members of
the Israeli mission to the UN
— eight additional delegates
for the duration of the
assembly.

Unemployment
Up In Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel ex-
perienced a 5 percent rise in
unemployment last month,
according to seasonally ad-
justed figures released
Tuesday.
The number of jobless was
46,518 in June, up from
44,717 in May. The number of
persons unemployed for six
days or longer went up from
20,679 in May to 21,258 in
June.
