sovereign Israel. When his
followers in Israel sought his
advice, he advised them to
vote for the Agudas Israel
party, and to encourage
others to do so. I would sug-
gest that this is a highly com-
mendable exercise of the
democratic process!
Their efforts resulted in an
increase in perhaps three or
four seats in Knesset for the
Agudas Israel party. However,
not one of the four so-called
"religious" parties has any
connection with Rabbi
Schneerson, neither seeking
his advice nor reporting their
actions to him.
In contrast, consider the ac-
tions of those high-powered
delegations to Prime Minister
Shamir, top level Federation
leaders (including those from
Michigan), nonesof whom are
Israeli residents or citizens.
Their approach was . to
threaten Shamir not only
with the cutoff of UJA funds,
but even with using their in-
fluence in Washington to cut
off Congressional aid.
Perhaps Shamir succumbed
to their economic pressure
this time, but what should he
expect from them in the
future?
As Menachim Begin said,
Rabbi Schneerson is a true
lover of the entire House of
Israel. Thns of thousands of
his Israeli followers have
become the standard by
which to measure compas-
sion, care, and outreach. Hun-
dreds of thousands of his
followers in this country re-
main strong in their commit-
ment to Torah principles and
practice.
How is The Jewish News
"serving Detroit's Jewish
community" by continuing to
publish worn-out, vicious
canards against religious
Jewry?

Palestinians'
'Yes, But' Syndrome
Before we react to the
PLO's new challenge we must
first analyze Arafat's techni-
que and present him with a
similar convoluted response.
His method represents the
"Yes . . . but syndrome,"
which is based on agreement
in principle but with condi-
tions that nullify or weaken
the main point. For example:
Yes, we accept Israel's right
to exist, but only if a
Palestine state is created
alongside.
Yes, we acknowledge the
reality of the Zionist entity,
but our covenant that aims at
its destruction cannot be
repudiated because Zionism
is Racism.

Yes, we renounce terrorism
everywhere in any form, but
not in Israel, and not by any
group that we do not
acknowledge .. .
This writer favors similar
counter offers to the PLO, as
follows:
Yes, we accept your right to
choose your representatives;
but it should be by secret
ballot, free of intimidation
and threats of assassination.
Yes, we support the
legitimate rights of the
Palestinians, including self-
determination; but we do not
intend to turn the area into
another strife-torn Beirut and
give you the means to destroy
us.
Yes, we shall comply with
any agreement reached; but
we must ascertain that yur
deeds represent your verbal
statements.
Yes, we desire peace for our
mutual benefit; but, sur-
rounded as we are by 21
hostile Arab contries, we
must proceed with caution
and concern for security. Your
past record of terrorism as in
irredentist entity does not
commend you as a peaceful
neighbor.

Remembering
The Antagonists
I wish to compliment Philip
Slomovitz on his article on
Father Coughlin (Dec. 30) .. .
I must, however disagree with
one statement:
"The need for more exten-
sive documentations is vital.
The radio priest's venom
must always be reconstructed
as a warning for such occur-
rences never to be repeated."
In this respect I must agree
II
with the ancient sages who
said: "Shem rishaim
yeskachoo" (Let the name of
the wicked be forgotten). By
documenting his poison, and
repeating it, you are merely
giving more ammunition to
those who, by themselves, -4
might be unable to think of it.
A good example is the Pro-
tocols of Elders of Zion. Had
they not been documented,
and reconstructed, by this
time it is possible they may
have been completely forgot-
