THE RIGHT PRICE!

$999

Shamir seems to have become
the highest bidder.
The Diaspora world has
spoken out. Jews throughout
the world, in the United
States and Canada, South
America, in Britain and
France and all over Europe,
are deeply hurt and angry
over what is happening in the
political process of Israel.
Prime Minister Shamir has
given repeated assurances in
the past that he will not give
in to the extremists and alter
the Law of Return. Yet now he
is again being put to the test.
How much is it worth to be
prime minister? What is the
cost of political blackmail?
When and where will it end?

Joseph was the first Dias-
pora Jew. He lived in Egypt
where 3,000 years later the
Sadat administration became
the first Arab government to
make peace with Israel.
Egypt is again entering the
diplomatic field after being
quarantined by the Arab
world.
Joseph's sons would be

disenfranchised if they lived
today and tried to make
aliyah. Their mother was not
Jewish. Yet Joseph is revered
in Jewish circles as one who
tried to save his people from
famine. -
We need another Joseph to
arise and save the Jewish
state from a different kind of
famine. It is a famine of war
and violence, of terrorism and
revolution, a famine of the
spirit that is wasting away
the unity of the Jewish people
by ultra-Orthodox fanatics
who want to disenfranchise
all non-Orthodox Jews who do
not see as they see, who do not
believe what they believe,
who would not tolerate
pluralism in Israel.
How long can this go on
before the Jewish people are
disunited and disillusioned by
their own kinsmen?
The partnership that
brought Israel and Diaspora
Jewry together may be
dissolved before our very eyes
by the deal Shamir makes for
the 18 seats in his coalition.

Casino Owner
Faces Complaint

New York (JTA) - The
Nevada State Gaming Com-
mission is considering
suspending or revoking the
gambling license of a Las
Vegas casino owner for his
flagrant display of Nazi sym-
pathies, which reportedly in-
clude a Nazi memorabilia
room in his hotel and the
hosting of a birthday party in
1986 and 1988 to honor Adolf
Hitler's birthday.
The Nevada Control Board
filed a complaint with the
gaming commission, its
parent organization, recom-
mending the license suspen-
sion along with a $400,000
fine against Ralph
Engelstadt, owner of the Im-
perial Palace Hotel and
Casino.
The Hitler birthday parties
featured Nazi marching
music, cakes decorated with
swastikas and bartenders
wearing T-shirts bearing
Hitler's picture. The Imperial
Palace's print shop also was
alleged to have produced
bumper stickers saying
"Hitler Was Right," that were
distributed to employees.
The Los Angeles-based
Simon Wiesenthal Center
issued a statement last week
endorsing the findings of the

Nevada Control Board and
urged the suspension or
revocation of Engelstadt's
license.
"The irresponsible use of
the Imperial Palace facility
for the collection of Nazi and
Adolf Hitler memorabilia has
brought untold grief to
Holocaust survivors and
angered all people of goodwill
who know the fight against
racism and bigotry is far from
won, even in our society," a
Wiesenthal Center official of-
ficial said.
A hearing will be held ear-
ly next year in Carson City,
the state capital.
