Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdntwlflr. "w ICTMMUDOI HBIAtD A ttmnnenUry AFTER ITS OVER, WHAT? you moan to say that you're going to store the Watergate in this "Sun do, buddy" he said. "It all goes In here. The whole '72 campaign. This is a division of the Smithsonian Museum of Unnatural History. They put all these old campaigns in here and fumigate them for years and years, and then somebody comes in and picks around for a few old items fit to put in the display cases for school kids to look at." Several workmen, grunting and straining under a heavy load, shouted for us to get out of the have you got the foreman asked. "This is the original Mc-Govorn-Eagleton one of the movers said. "Look at the foreman said with awe In his voice. "The only presidential ticket in the history of American politics that was subject to a factory recall." "Hey, cried a worker who was carrying a tiny plastic box. "Where do you want me to put the per We went over and looked at it. It was curled up inside a tiny plastic box and looked surprisingly unsubstantial. "Why don't you put it behind foreman suggested. Suddenly the warehouse was filled with a thunderous roar as of heavy waves pounding a coast. As it drew nearer and nearer, we were able to distinguish human voices. "They're bringing in the the foreman called to a mover in the darkest recesses of the warehouse. "Open that big trap door right next to Sammy Davis Jr. and we'll march them over there and let them drop right on through to the he said. "That way we won't be able to hear them." In they marched, massed hordes of surrogates uttering statements the White House them to read. There was Melvin Laird reading an attack on McGovern's defense policy, and David Eisenhower reading an attack on McGovern's baseball policy, and the White House plumber reading an attack on McGovern's plumbing policy, and many, many more. Whep the last one had plunged, still reading, through the trap door, a worker asked the foreman if they shouldn't stow the Democrats for Nixon down there too. "Better the foreman said. "Somebody might want to use John Connally again before the next four years are out, and they'd never find nun with all HKJBO surrogates." At the warehouse gate another van had just parked, and as the doors opened there was an indescribable wall of sound that made the strongest mover cringe. "All right, all the foreman screamed. "Get that thing through here right away before it drives us all nuts, and dump it down the trapdoor with the surrogates." "What was I asked wbea the trap had mercifully restored quiet to the warehouse. "The Sargent Shriver the foreman said.

Meir Kahame The turbulent rabbi who worries Israel By ERIC SILVER London Observer JERUSALEM The case of Rabbi Meir Kahane seems to have presented the Israeli gov- ernment with as much of a quandary as that of Myer Lansky, the underworld leader who has finally been ordered out as a threat to the public welfare. Rabbi Kahane, founder of the Jewish Defence League, came to Israel from New York 14 months ago. He brought with him a record of militant na- tionalism. The League had flexed a strong arm in defence of working-class Jews threaten- ed by black violence in the in- ner city areas. It had cam- paigned for Soviet Jewish emi- gration to the point of threaten- ing to assassinate two Russian diplomats if a sick Jewish wo- man, held in a Soviet labour camp, died far lack of atten- tion. An American court gave Rabbi Kahane a suspended five- year sentence for conspiring to make explosives. One of his aides, caught smuggling guns on a British airliner at Ken- nedy Airport, admitted plan- ning to hijack in Egyptian plane and take it to Tel Aviv. BANNED Since settling in Jerusalem nith his wife and four children, Rabbi Kahane has scratched some old Jewish-Arab wounds in this city and in Hebron so that eventually he and 19 followers were banned by the military governor from enter- ing the occupied West Bank of the Jordan. After the murder of 11 Is- raeli Olympic sportsmen, lie be- gan campaigning for Jewish terror to counter Arab terror. A cache of weapons, grenades and explosives was discovered at Lod airport. Tho Jewish De- fence League admitted dis- patching them to Now York for use against Arab institutions In the United States. Tlie Israeli government has set Its sights against, frecbool- ing counter-terror. The minister of police, Shlomo Hiilci, said that the League's activities must b> nipped in the bud. Rab- ii Kahane and five alleged as- sociates were detained for ques- ioning, then released on Condi- ion that they forfeit their passports. Any decision to prosecute will evidently be taken at Cabinet evel. There are increasing sus- ilcions that ministers are wor- ried about stumbling into a pol- tical trial. THREAT Rabbi Kahane, whose appli- cation for Israeli citizenship las still to be answered, is al- ready proposing to form a par- ty to fight next year's general election. Public confidence in -he government's response to Arab terror is still shaken. The danger of a prc-Kahane back- ,ash is probably small, but it cannot be written off. Rabbi Kahane is the kind of extremist who starts from a position that most of his "con- stituency" (in this case Jews) would find unexceptionable, hen stretches it to a logical .imit. The subtleties and com- promises of social living, not least for Jews, are swept im- placably aside. "The moral imperative for !he Jewish Rabbi Ka- liane says, "is to survive." To this end Jews have an obliga- tion to help each other in times of crisis, regardless of national frontiers. Israel, as a sovereign state, refuses to fulfil this ob- ligation to those who are not its citizens. It may lobby for them, but it will not fight for their lives. So far, few Israeli or Diaspora Jews would contradict the tur- bulent Rabbi. But that is not the end of the Jewish Defence League's argument. The Jew- ish obligation, Rabbi Kahane insists, demands that Jews be prepared to break the law in the cause of their brethren. he says, of the Jewish response to Hitler, "did Jews do the kind of thing that later blacks did for their owr people or indeed Jews did for blacks. For Jews, Jewish problems must come first. The Jew lias got to loam Unit no one gives n damn for UM Jew." The object of violence seems o be twofold: first publicity and secondly an answer to oth er people's violence. Rabbi Ka lane glories in the fact tha he League "put the Sovie Jewish question on the fron >ages" by violence. The Rabbi may, as Israeli ministers claim, be a danger ous amateur, but his attach ment to violence is more than rhetoric. He is prepared to kill if he sees no alternative. If th choice, in his eyes, is between a Jewish life and an enemy' life, he will- pull the trigger There is, ha argues, little mora difference whether it is a stat or an individual loing the dm Rabbi Kahane, who is 40 an received his diploma at the Mir Yeshiva in Brooklyn, ackmm ledges no conflict between hi religion and his advocacy violence. He says (correctly that the commandment forbid murder" not if it i accurately translated from th Hebrew. He invokes Ecclesias les for the injunction: "Do no overly righteous." And th Talmud for: "He who is mere ful unto the cruel is destinec some day to be cruel to th merciful." It is a doctrine o the synagogue militant that i one, but only one, strand ii the history of his people.
