he appointed Sharon his ad-
viser on terrorism. During
the War in Lebanon, Rabin
visited the Beirut front and
made statements supporting
Sharon's handling of the
war. In recent months,
however, Sharon has been
increasingly sharp in his
criticism of Rabin's policies
regarding the Palestinian
intifada, and has called for
his resignation.
Although Weizman is con-
sidered a super-dove, during
his tenure as Defense Min-
ister, in the first Begin
government, it was he who
appointed the hawkish
Rafael Eitan to the post of
chief of staff. Weizman also
retains cordial relations
with Ze'evi, much to the an-
noyance of many of his
ideological allies in the
Labor Party.
Not all the historic ties are
friendly. Sharon and Bar
Lev barely speak, a legacy of
their long military rivalry
and Sharon's bitter criticism
of the Bar Lev Line along
the Suez Canal which fell
during the first days of the
1973 Yom Kippur War.
Mordechi Gur, who quar-
relled with Sharon when
both were young paratroop
officers in the mid-fifties,
has publicly blasted Sharon
as a rear echelon battle
commander, a charge Sha-
ron hotly denies. And Gur's
relations with Weizman

have been chilly since the
eve of Anwar Sadat's visit to
Jerusalem in 1977; Defense
Minister Weizman came
very close to relieving Gur
when the chief of staff warn-
ed of an Egyptian trick and
put the army on alert.
In a country that has been
at war for 40 years, the
military records of politi-
cians are important, and
sometimes become a matter
of controversy. Last year,
Ezer Weizman and Deputy
Foreign Minister Benyamin
Netanyahu got into a public
scrap about who was the
greater hero. More recently,
Sharon labelled Likud col-
league Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens a deserter for
having allegedly dodged the
draft during the War of In-
dependence.
The Arens affair pointed
out a central truth of Israeli
politics: there is a definable
division between the polit-
ical generals and their
civilian colleagues.
This difference was articu-
lated by Sharon in a recent
interview with the Israeli
newspaper Hadashot: "In
this government there is a
group of men who have car-
ried the burden of defense
and fighting for decades," he
said. "I can disagree with
their opinions, but
somewhere, there is always
a warm spot in my heart for
them. I admire them." ❑

10,000 Dedicate
Holocaust Memorial

Miami Beach (JTA) — A
dramatic, 42-foot bronze
statue of an outstretched
hand greeted more than
10,000 people who gathered
here recently for the dedica-
tion of a new Holocaust
memorial.
The crowd assembled on
the Jerusalem stone floor of

the memorial's plaza for the
dedication which included
many Holocausst survivors,
who wept as Nobel laureate
Elie Wiesel delivered
remarks, first in Yiddish and
then in English.
The numbers tattooed on
the arms of the Holocaust
survivors mirrored the
