George
Mann:
Spokes-
man for
the ZOA.

terparts, it would, in effect,
be caving in to the terrorists who
hope to derail the peace talks.
While he acknowledged that
attacks linked to the militant Is-
lamic movement Hamas have
increased in the past two years,
he said the lesson of such
tragedies is not that Arabs in
general don't want peace. It is
instead that Arab extremists
have come to the panicky real-
ization that "this is their last
chance."
In the end, exchanging land
for peace was a calculated risk
for Israelis, but one worth tak-
ing, Mr. Vilan said. "There is no
alternative," he said.
Mr. Mann, a Farmington
Hills attorney, responded gin-
gerly at first to Mr. Vilan's po-
sition, acknowledging the
awkwardness of lecturing an Is-
raeli on the political course of his
own government.
Ultimately, he said, his dif-
ferences with the pro-peace
forces hinged on the lack of trust
he placed in Arab leaders such
as Yassir Arafat.
"We all want the same thing,
but we must not be carried away
by wishful thinking," Mr. Mann
said in expressing support for
Israeli settlers in the disputed
territories.
He had real doubts about
whether Arabs are "committed
in their hearts to be our peace
partners ... Peace has to be
based on a mutual desire for
peace, a mutual understanding
of what peace means."
Mr. Mann was a last-minute
substitution at Monday's debate.
He filled in for Yechiel Leiter,
the former mayor of Hebron's
Jewish community and an ac-

tivist for Yesha, an organization
that represents Jewish settlers
on the West Bank.
Mr. Leiter bowed out Sunday
after the Young Adult Division
of the Jewish Federation of
Metro Detroit refused to move
the debate from the Birming-
ham Temple, a site Mr. Leiter
opposed.
Mr. Leiter said he "didn't
want to legitimize" the temple's
secular focus or some of its less
traditional practices, including
its lack of an ark or a Torah in
its sanctuary.
"There are certain things that
are so extreme they can't in any
way be sanctioned," Mr. Leiter
said.
Mr. Leiter said he did not talk
to anyone from the Birmingham
Temple before making his deci-
sion to pull out.
Temple officials could not be
reached for comment. ❑
