Iran would retaliate in a massive
way against an Israeli strike because
Iranian leaders know that Israel's mili-

Other ZOA Efforts
The ZOA has two full-time lobbyists
on Capitol Hill, meeting daily with
members of Congress and others.
Klein, who lives in Philadelphia, said
he goes there every few weeks and
knows many of the senators and con-
The ZOA also assists Jewish college
students. It fought to get harassment of
Jewish students on campus covered by
the provisions of Title VI of the federal
Civil Rights Act.
"We've filed seven or eight claims in
the last two years against universities
that are violating Title VI provisions:'
Klein said. "We helped change the
tenor of the campuses to some extent.
We're very, very proud of that."
The ZOA has six full-time profes-
sionals at major campuses. It also
sends 50 Jewish student leaders to
Israel every winter. "They come back
very inspired:' Klein said.
The ZOA has an active Michigan
region, led by Executive Director
Kobi Erez, based in West Bloomfield,
and President Eugene Greenstein of
Klein said, "To me, this is the most
frightening time for people who care
about Israel and even the world in the
20 years I've been doing this."
Klein admits the 1930s were a little
more frightening, as Hitler rose to
power and began his genocide. But
with radical Islamic terrorists expand-
ing their ranks and Iran on the fringe
of getting nuclear weapons, there is
plenty to be wary of.
He indicated he wouldn't mind a
little Divine intervention.
"We need His help:' Klein said.

Hadassah Hospital at Ein Kerem
JTA/Times of Israel
on-medical personnel and
nurses seeking back pay
joined doctors in a strike
against Hadassah Medical Center.
Only emergency and birthing ser-
vices were in operation on Monday at
the two Jerusalem campuses, Mount
Scopus and Ein Kerem. The doctors
have been on partial strike, offering
only urgent treatment on a Sabbath
and holiday schedule for nearly a
Hospital staff received only half
their January salaries due to the cen-
ter's $367 million deficit.
Israel's Health Minister Yael German
announced a financial recovery pack-
age offered to the hospital, including
a government loan of more than $14
million to be matched by Hadassah,
the Women's Zionist Organization of
America, Haaretz reported.
The announcement came after the
hospital on Friday filed for court pro-
tection against its creditors, including
employees filing to receive back sala-
ries, after two Israeli banks cut off its
lines of credit, according to reports.
The money from the government
and Hadassah would allow the hospi-
tal to continue operating, but not to
pay the back salaries.
German, in an interview with
Israel's Channel 2 News, said
Hadassah's deficit was the result of too
many employees, inflated salaries and
difficulty in generating extra revenue
from private medical services.
Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu on Monday accused
Hadassah management of mishan-
dling hospital debts, which the public
will now have to pay for.
"There was a serious failure there,"
Netanyahu said at the weekly Likud
faction meeting, addressing Hadassah's
financial mess, which has all but para-
lyzed its two Jerusalem medical cen-
ters. "When the government is in defi-
cit, we handle it immediately. [They]
accumulated debt there; it's unclear
why, perhaps out of the assumption
that someone would pay."
If you had to push a rock up a
hill everyday of your life, would
each day be exactly the same?
