dying there of tuber-
culosis at the age of 39.
Generations of Bratslav
Hasidim made his grave
in Uman a center of
pilgrimage and, in accor-
dance with his instruc-
tions, danced around it on
his yahrtzeit.
There is also reason to
believe that Nachman saw
himself fulfilling a mes-
sianic role. His devoted
follower and amanuensis,
Nathan Steinhartz (1780-
1 8 4 5), recorded the
teachings of the master,
but neither he nor any
other disciple succeeded
him, Nachman having
promised that he would
continue to lead his
Hasidim after his death.
Here are some aphorisms
appended to the biography:
Man must lose himself in
prayer and entirely forget
his own existence.
Humility for the sake of
approval is the worst
form of arrogance.
Better a superstitious
believer than a ra-
tionalistic unbeliever.
One who keeps silent in
the face of abuse is a true
Hasid.
Melody and song lead
the heart of man to God.
God is present
whenever a peace treaty
is signed.
Nachman of Bratslav will
always continue to enthuse
and inspire us with his
stories, parables and
allegorical tales.

Eastern Poison

An article from the Los
Angeles Times was noted by
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency under the headline
"For Many Japanese
Tabloids Anti-Semitism Is

Fit To Print." The JTA story
offers this:
Pundits have attributed
Bill Clinton's presidential
victory to economic, gen-

erational and psycholog-
ical factors, but readers of
the Japanese tabloid
press know better: Clin-
ton won thanks to the
machinations of Jewish-
Zionist plotters.

"A select group of
Japanese editors and
commentators charge
that Clinton's road to the
White House has been
paved by a conspiracy of
American Jewish political
interests, world Jewish
capital and Zionist opi-
nion leaders orchestrated
from Tel Aviv."
So writes David
Williams from Tokyo in a
recent issue of the Los
Angeles Times. Williams has
taught Japanese govern-
ment at Oxford University
and is the author of Japan:
Beyond the End of History to
be published this year.
In his article, Williams
criticizes both the United
States and Japan for the
chauvinistic prejudices each
country holds of the other,
but he concentrates on the
hysterical anti-Jewish at-
tacks that permeate Tokyo's
tabloid weeklies.
This story notes the con-
tinuation and perpetration
of anti-Semitic tendencies in
Japan. While it is important
not to ignore the facts that
there are only 1,000 Jews in
Japan and that the bigots
are limited, it is obligatory
to remember that anti-
Semites need poisonous
roots to spread their venom.
We must reamain aware of
the bigotry and be ready to
confront it. ❑

Amsterdam (JTA) — The
Royal Netherlands Football
League has made a number
of recommendations to stop
the growing number of racist
and anti-Semitic incidents at
soccer matches.
The report, prepared dur-
ing the last year, was releas-
ed just one week after a
group of soccer fans singing
neo-Nazi songs were barred
by police from attending a
game between a Utrecht
team and Amsterdam's Ajax
team.
The Football League's rec-
ommendations, made after

consultation with govern-
ment and police officials,
said that matches should be
interrupted or even con-
tinued without any audience
when racist acts prove un-
controllable.
Soccer players and referees
should take the initiative in
appealing to the public to
shun racist behavior, the
report said.
The commission also rec-
ommended that fans found
guilty in the past of racist
behavior should be denied
admission to "risky" mat-
ches for a number of months.
