$100 Million For Bonds
Washington/JTA
Former
President Bill Clinton reportedly
helped raise more than $100 million
for Israel Bonds in a single sitting.
The Washington Post on Friday
reviewed Clinton's post-presidential
career as a public speaker. Most of
Clinton's speaking income goes to
his foundation, which fights poverty
and AIDS, and he speaks pro-bono
for causes he favors; but Clinton
has earned nearly $40 million in six
years from speeches for which he
charges $150,000 apiece.
The former president in 2005
helped the U.S. arm of Israel's trea-
sury authority sell $101 million in
investment bonds by speaking at
a luncheon at the Pierre Hotel in
New York that was jammed with
real estate executives who wanted to
hear his keynote address:' the Post
reported.



When You Lend a Hand,
You Change a Life.

What seems like a small investment to some is life-

changing for others. Jim had been living on a fixed income

for many years and was unable to afford health insurance.

When he was diagnosed with cancer, he couldn't afford to

pay for treatment...yet he couldn't afford not to. Because

of your contribution to Jewish Federation, we're able

to support 19 agencies, including Hebrew Free Loan

2006 over the previous year, accord-
ing to a new study.
The Service for the Protection of
the Jewish Community's report cited
371 attacks in 2006, compared to
300 in 2005. "We've seen an eleva-
tion of 45 percent in physical aggres-
sions from 2005 to 2006 and a 71
percent elevation in verbal insults:'
Elisabeth Cohen-Tannoudji wrote in
the report.
However, the last third of 2006
showed a 21 percent decrease in anti-
Semitic incidents, "which has contin-
ued through January 2007," said the
report, which was carried out under
the auspices of CRIF, an umbrella
organization of secular French Jewish
groups. Last year also saw the kid-
napping and murder of French Jew

Two Palestinian
teenagers were arrested for the mur-
der of a West Bank settler. The body
of Erez Levanon of Bat Ayin, 42, a
father of three who was stabbed
repeatedly, was discovered Sunday
night near a neighboring Palestinian
village.
Mudar Abu-Dia and Mousaa
Ahalil, both 18, were arrested over-
night near the site of the murder.
Both confessed, citing nationalistic
motives, but no affiliation with a
particular terrorist group.
