Other American friends of
Israel also reject the need for
better public relations tech-
niques on behalf of Israel
—but for very different
reasons. "I have a short fuse
on this subject," said Cyn-
thia Ozick, the highly
regarded novelist. "I hear
this same damn question be-
ing asked again and again:
why is Israel at fault for its
image? One doesn't in-
vestigate one's own navel

Author Cynthia Ozick:
World media is hostile.

when you have a world of rot
out there. The Jewish com-
munity, in its introspec-
tiveness, is always looking

An Aborted Effort

There was an effort
several years ago to link
Israel with some of the
nation's most experienced
public relations profes-
But that effort ran into
a wall of indifference by
the Israeli authorities.
In the wake of the Yom
Kippur war in 1973, a
group of Jewish media
and public relations ex-
perts began meeting in
New York to discuss the
possibility that the long
lines at the nation's gas
pumps might result in an
anti-Semitic, anti-Israel
"One of the ideas that
surfaced was to develop a
comprehensive plan for
Israel's public relations,"
said Morton Yarmon,
public relations director
for the American Jewish
Committee and the man
who arranged these
The group raised a kitty
of more than $100,000,
and lined up two leading
public relations firms to
assist a core of prominent
Jewish activists in de-
veloping a new public re-
lations strategy.
In 1978, the group pro-
duced a 70-page report
detailing a public rela-
tions program with a
price tag of more than $1
million, with funding
split between American
Jews and the Israeli
government. But then,
the proposal simply faded
"The plan died
stillborn," Mr. Yarmon
said. "Nobody really
knows exactly why."

PR expert Morton Yarmon:

Previous effort failed.

The failure of that plan,
Mr. Yarmon said, also
bodes ill for the current
wave of concern over
Israel's declining image.
Howard Rubenstein,
who attended some of the
meetings of the planning
group, suggested that the
authorities in Israel were
not impressed by the need
for this kind of program —
and that the planners ran
afoul of inter-group
rivalries among Ameri-
can Jewish organizations.
"When there's an
emergency in Israel, peo-
ple get excited about
public opinion," he said.
"It happened in 1967, in
1973, in 1982. And it's
happening now: Israel is
losing the public relations
war. But as soon as the
emergency is over, people
lose their enthusiasm and
their high resolve."
