there was no occupation. The Arabs
controlled Gaza and the West Bank.
Two major wars were started by the
Arabs to destroy the state of Israel. After
the Six-Day War, the late Israeli Prime
Minister Golda Meir invited the Arab
League to enter negotiations for a peace-
ful resolution. The answer was the
"Khartoum Three No's."
The Oslo Peace Process was designed
to establish a Palestinian Entity. "Land
for Peace" [meant] Israel gave up land.
Yasser Arafat was to prepare his people
for peaceful coexistence. Contrary to the
agreement, Arafat stoked the hatred
toward Israel and the Jews and held out
hope for eventual destruction of the
State of Israel.
At Camp David, in the year 2000,
Arafat was offered 97 percent of Gaza
and the West Bank. Without a coun-
teroffer, Arafat left the negotiations and
started Intifada

Angelic Smile,
Beloved Torah

Staff Writer Shelli Liebman Dorfman's
magnificent tribute to Ira Boykansky
on erev Rosh Hashanah ("L'Shanah
Tovah!" Sept. 6, page 14), coupled
with his angelic smile while clutching
his beloved Torah, revealed to each
one of us that sincere belief in a power
greater than ourselves can, and will,
make life a wonderful experience.
My late mother, Esther, while a resi-
dent of Detroit's Borman Hall, intro-
duced my family to Ira. She was
inspired by his dedication to making
the most of every day and his com-
plete commitment to God and to
Judaism. She loved helping him with
the tasks of daily living and he
responded by always being the con-
summate mentsh.
Ira's impact on me and my family
made us all appreciate the true mean-
ing of life. He has lived with a diffi-
cult physical challenge, but he has
never argued with his Creator about
this problem. He is the constant focus
of a loving and dedicated family, a
multitude of friends and a community
that cherishes his being.
Each day is a new opportunity for
Ira to offer prayers and to be in shul.
Now we are positive that one of his
special prayers has been answered. Ira
with his Torah — what a beautiful
moment in the life of a beautiful man.
