PESACH 1989: Let One Who is Hungry Enter and Eat

In different times and in different places we have always
read the words with which our seder meal opens-"Let all
who are hungry enter and eat"-In those times and
places we have always been called upon to reach out
to those who are the most deprived among us-those
who are hungry.
MAZON, A Jewish Response to Hunger. is a way
in our time to respond to the scandal of hunger
in our own country and around the world.

Israel has increased in recent
years — despite the Palesti-
nian intifada. And he charges
Fein with` grossly exag-
gerating the alienation of
American Jews toward
Israel."

What we ask of you is quite simple and in keeping with our
Jewish tradition. It is that you join with us by adding one
more guest to your seder table. Through a gift of $18 -Chai
- io Mazon, the ancient words will take on real meaning
and will provide for those who suffer outside our doors.
Please join in this effort; let all who are compassionate
join and redeem our invitation.

Palestinians:
A Gift For Ambiguity

Last November's Palesti-
nian Declaration of In-
dependence has been sub-
jected to all sorts of inter-
pretations, but probably
nothing approaching the
analysis given by an Israeli-
Palestinian writer in the
March issue of Harper's
magazine. In a two-page in-
terpretative schematic of the
"Palestinian Declaration of
Independence," novelist. An-
ton Shammas makes
repeated comparisons bet-
ween this document and
Israel's 1948 Declaration of
Independence. Among these:
• Israel's declaration began
with the phrase, "Eretz Israel
was the birthplace of the
Jewish people. Here their
spiritual, religious and
political identity was
shaped." The Palestinian
declaration starts with the
claim that Palestine "is
where the Palestinian Arab
people was born, on which it
grew, developed and excelled."
Both these preambles, notes
Shammas, "would seem to
assert a natural historic right
to all the land from Jordan to
the sea?' But the rest of the
text illustrates, according to
Shammas, that Palestinians
"recognize that, inevitably,
have to trade down the
homeland of the mind for a
narrow state underfoot."
• The declaration's accep-
tance of the 1947 partition
that would have created two
states — Palestine and Israel
— is "perhaps," said Sham-
mas, "the most important
statement in the declaration"
because it "means that the
Palestine National Council
accepts a two-state solution"
to the Israeli-Palestinian
dispute. But, asks Shammas,
"it is ambiguous? Of course.
It is a basis for negotiation. It
is not, as Israeli officials
would have it, a clear implica-
tion that the PNC wants the
two states to return to the
proposed 1947 borders,
borders beyond which Israel
has unambiguously expand-
ed. The fact is, Israel has no
fixed borders today. And
nobody, but nobody, in Israel's
current coalition government
talks about a two-state solu-
tion. No ambiguity there?" .
