Purim, the holiday on which we
recall Haman, a descendent of
Amalek.
What the rabbi unfortunate-
ly forgets is the real sin against
the Jewish way of life was the
doctor's intrusion upon the Ke-
dushah of the Moslems in
prayer. The concept of ke-
dushah means "different, sep-
arate, placed upon a higher
level." Judaism teaches that one
of the greatest offenses corn-
mitted by man is the violation
of kedushah. If Jew or gentile
alike cannot have the "sanctu-
ary" of being safe in a house of
prayer, then there is no hope for
mankind to live in a civilized
world.

nis Archer. However, I feel that
it is important to mention that
there are some Jewish families
who are raising children that
live in the thriving world south
of Eight Mile Road, but not in
the newly built Riverfront or the
opulent Palmer Woods and oth-
er such areas relating to your
story.
It is too bad that more re-
search was not used to balance
your article and show that not
all the Jewish people that re-
side in Detroit are transplants
from suburbia; there are some
Jews who have never left De-
troit.

Hebron
And Justice

We can only wonder about the
tragic events in Hebron on
Purim day when Dr. Baruch
Goldstein gunned down 40
Moslems at the Machpelah
Mosque, triggering shock, Arab
rioting, and a breakdown of the
peace talks.
Do we view his actions as
those of a "lunatic" who repre-
sented only a militant minori-
ty of the 130,000 settlers? Or,
do we perceive the killings to be
a desperate act of retaliation in
response to escalating Arab ac-
tivities against innocent civil-
ians?
Even those who are sympa-
thetic to Dr. Goldstein's cause
must seriously ask themselves
whether it was really worth it.
Politically, the killings may
have backfired, strengthening
the resolve of the Rabin gov-
ernment to pursue the peace
talks more aggressively. And,
morally, the massacre of these
Arabs may have endangered in-
nocent Jews everywhere who
may now become the targets of
Arab terrorists.
Zealots and militants would
do well to remember the admo-
nition of the great Rabbi Bunim
of Peshischa who interpreted
the verse, "Justice, justice shall
thou pursue" (Deuteronomy
16:20) to mean that in the pur-
suit of justice, one must also be
just: the end never justifies the
means!

The Other
Jews Of Detroit

Your story "Street Life" (March
11) was a very good public re-
lations endeavor to show the
Jewish support that is being
given to Detroit's Mayor Den-

Criticizing
State Of Israel

The featured piece in your
March 18 edition, "Crossing the
Line," was a fascinating, wel-
come discourse about an issue
which touches the core of our
relationship as Jews with the
State of Israel.
Indeed, Israel is so central to
our Jewish concerns and com-
munal self, that a frank and
open discussion of her quest for
peace, and our role therein, is
no longer the domain of Zionist
organizations alone. Instead, it
is an integral part of our over-
all community agenda.
It is in this spirit that the
Jewish Community Council is
devoting its upcoming Delegate
Assembly 7:30 p.m. March 30
at the Adat Shalom Synagogue,
to "Drawing the Line: How Far
Can We Go in Influencing the
Peace Process?"
All concerned members of the
community are welcome to take
part.

Swallowing
A Racist Line

Shame on The Jewish News for
publishing an article and pho-
to which use techniques in the
best tradition of anti-Israel pro-
paganda. Ina Friedman's "Tak-
ing Stock" (March 18), is
accompanied by a photo show-
ing an Israeli policeman strik-
ing a Palestinian woman;
there's no explanation for his
action. Was she throwing rocks
or taunting the policeman as
Palestinian women have done;
or are we to assume, lacking an
explanation, that he is striking
her for the sheer joy of it?
As for the matter of double
standards for Arabs and Jews:
they are reprehensive when ap-
plied to people having the same
