Condemnations and universal
pressure will be great by the Unit-
ed States and Europe. But that is
nothing compared to Israel sur-
rendering one-third of its territo-
ry won by the blood of the Jews.
Now Rabin wants to retreat behind
the defunct 1967 "Green Line."
Arafat is clever because he caused
Yitzhak Rabin, by a handshake, to
yield Gaza, Jericho, and soon He-
bron. Rabin seems to have forgot-
ten that the Kingdom of Jordan is
80 percent of the original Pales-
tine, and the "Palestinians" run
Jordan also.
This is criticism of Rabin-Peres
strategy of the first order. Rabin-
Peres and the Labor Party types
have betrayed the Jewish com-
munity in Israel, where the Israeli
voters can only vote for parties and
no candidates.
The Israeli government has em-
braced the PLO. To see a support-
er like Berl Falbaum outline the
truth, and then see him avoid the
same truth and embrace the evil
of Arafat, is to betray the Jews.

I was saddened to read in the June
24 edition of the vandalism to the
B'nai Israel Center. Unfortunate-
ly, this is not an isolated incident
in our community of open anti-
I was greatly troubled by the ini-
tial response to the vandalism by
the executive director of Congre-
gation Shaarey Zedek, Leonard
Baruch. One can certainly under-
stand the concern to shelter our
young children from these violent
messages but why the need to "cov-
er up everything" so "no parent or
child saw what was written."
Fortunately, The Jewish News
saw fit to publicize this event even
with a photograph. There is an ap-
propriate age to teach our children
the very real but usually hidden
message of anti-Semitism.
I think Mr. Baruch missed the
message of the "writing on the
wall" when he somewhat glibly de-
duced that since "we're part of
America, they must be from an-
other country." No, I'm afraid that

these perpetrators regardless of
their age or motivation are very
much a part of our current (tem-
porary?) homeland.
We do a great disservice when
we cover up with paper or close our
eyes to this aspect of the country
that we live in. We live today in the
United States during one of the
greatest eras of freedom and pros-
perity for the Jewish people.
Nonetheless, we must never forget
the lessons of our past.
During the sad period of the
`Three Weeks" beginning June 26,
we are reminded of the past 2,000
years of anti-Semitism and vio-
lence against our people. Let the
accumulative effect of this unend-
ing chain of hatred remind us of
who we are and where our true
homeland is.
It's time for us to realize before
it's too late that we should go back
to the land where we really come
from, Eretz Yisrael.

B'nai B'rith
Investment Plan

Jerusalem (JTA) — B'nai Brith
International this week launched
an Israel investment program,
which the group said symbolizes
the changing political climate in
the Middle East and the chang-
ing relationship between Dias-
pora Jewry and Israel.
B'nai Brith has helped arrange
for a new mutual fund package
slated to be available in about two
months to U.S. investors.
One of the nine funds in the
package will be the Israel Op-
portunities Fund Inc., an open-
end investment company aimed
at long-term capital appreciation
by investment in securities on the
Tel Aviv stock exchange.
For many years the thrust of
the American Jewish relation-
ship to Israel has been philan-
thropy, Kent Schiner,
international president of B'nai
Brith, said as he unveiled the
plan at a news conference here.
While B'nai Brith still supports
philanthropy, the new invest-
ment program reflects a new em-
phasis on partnership and
investment, Mr. Schiner said.
The program comes amid calls
by some Israeli leaders for a re-
alignment of the Israel-Diaspora
relationship based on partner-
'The Israel fund is a major mu-
tual fund designed to bring U.S.
dollars into Israel for the devel-
opment of business," said Jerome
Corsi, president of MDS Securi-
ties Inc., the broker-dealer arm
of MDS/Bankmark, which will
underwrite, administer and dis-
tribute the fund products.
