"From this position of
extravagant privilege,
some of its leaders
avariciously pursue the
elimination of Israel as
a state.
"But Israel will not be
deprived of its state-
hood. It will not die, or
disappear, or apologize
for itself, or be swal-
o. lowed up in something
else, or abandon its
o• specific Jewish voca-
tion and solidarities. It
will seek peace, com-
promise and mutual
S' concession within the
framework of respect
for its rights."
Traditionally, the
world infected with the
cancer of hatred will be
reminded that the small
lb cruse of oil is still burn-
ing and will not be
extinguished. This is
the message of
Chanukah for Jews. It
is the warning to
mankind that neither

Jewry nor Israel are
destructible.

The Birnbaum account of
Chanukah is a remarkable
historical chapter that in-
dicates how the festival em-
phasized the "victory of
Torah over Hellinism." Dr.
Birnbaum also defined the
lesson of the festival:

The Chanukah event
has encouraged many a
small group to fight
against injustice and op-
pression. It has been a
source of inspiration in
the movement to liberate
Eretz Yisrael and estab-
lish it as an independent
State of Israel. It
stimulates the Jew to
withstand assimilation
and the temptation of
false gods, to champion
the ideals of his heritage
in the midst of an over-
whelming majority, and to •
stress Jewish culture in
the face of a vast culture
that seeks to engulf him.

The inspiration provided
for us continues uninter-
rupted for centuries. The
lessons we learn add to our
rejoicing. Let us continue to
cherish them as we light our
menorot. ❑

'The Intifada Toll
Is On The Rise



*






Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
Labor government has failed
to live up to its election
promise to improve condi-
tions for Palestinians in the
administered territories, ac-
cording to an Israeli human
rights group.

Slight improvements have
been balanced by a sharp
rise in the number of Pales-
tinians killed by security
forces this year, says the
B'tselem watchdog group.
Over the past five years of
the intifada, Israeli forces
killed 923 Palestinians, in-
cluding 186 minors, Yizhar
Be'er, B'tselem's director-
general, told the Israeli dai-
ly Ha'aretz.
After an initial escalation
— 284 Palestinians killed in
the first year of the uprising
and 300 in the second — the
numbers decreased steadily
to 127 and 96 over the next
two years.
But this year, as of Dec. 6,
the number has gone up
again to 116.

were responsible for 110 of
the deaths.
Palestinians also stepped
up their killing of Israelis
this year, slaying 12
military personnel and 12
civilians, compared to two
soldiers and six civilians in
1991.
Internecine Arab bloodlet-
ting is on the rise as well,
said Mr. Be'er.
The five years of the in-
tifada have seen 675 Pales-
tinians killed by other Pa-
lestinians, usually on suspi-
cion of cooperating with the
Israeli authorities. This year
Palestinians killed 197 of
their fellows, a rise from 154
last year.

The sharp increase has
prompted B'tselem to
prepare a report on violence
in the Palestinian commun-
ity, which is to be issued
soon.
The current government
has eased measures taken
against detainees who are 16
years old or younger, and
those accused of minor
offenses.
