HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 From page 1A free living for the past eight years to sage motherly advice. With Teddy passing away last year, Share's desire to bring the arts and philan- thropy to the community is greater than ever. She often thinks of her mom at a Pa- vilion event. When she joins hands with a senior to dance, or just to move and sway, she notes the importance of touch and its healing properties. Musical entertainer and Jewish Pavilion program director Walter "Skye" Gold- stein, said he will be perform- ing the Irving Berlin ballad, "Always," which was Teddy's and Myron's special song, and never failed to bring a tear to the eyes of Teddy while a resident of Orlando's Kinneret Apartments. Share noted the lyrics represented a lifetime of love for her parents, and now move her to tears, as well. "Always," by Irving Berlin Always. I'll be lov- ing you, oh always~With a love that's true always. Not for just an hour, Not for just a day, Not for just a year, But always.

From page 1A long-range ballistic missiles in the stratosphere with an eye on Iran, and Iron Dome, which defends against short- range rockets from the Gaza Strip. David's Sling is meant to counter the type of medium- range missiles possessed by Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants. Israel considers Iran to be its greatest threat, citing the country's nuclear ambitions, its development of long4erm missiles, hostile anti-Israel rhetoric and support for anti-Israel militant groups. Israel has grown increas- ingly concerned about Iran's involvement in the civil war in neighboring Syria, where its troops are supporting President Bashar Assad. Israel is worried that Iran and its proxy Hezbollah will establish a long-term pres- ence in Syria near the Israeli border. From page 1A school spokesmen in Newton will highlight that the Arab World Studies Notebook--a binder of problematic docu- ments-was removed several years ago from the curricu- lum, and then falsely assert the whole issue was resolved. "There are many other biased, inaccurate materials still in the system spread- ing false information to our kids," Levin said. "We've documented it extensively and the public deserves to know what the school committee is going to do." One example, an eight-page timeline taken from the PBS website that omits any men- tion of Arab terror attacks inside Israel during the 1970s and 1980s, and also omits Yasser Arafat's wave of mass suicide bombings in the terror war of the early 2000s. "Students simply won't un- derstand a critical element of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict if they don't learn about Arab terrorism against Jews," said Steven Stotsky, CAMERA re- searcherwho authored, "Indoc- trinating Our Youth," a study of anti-Israel bias in U.S. public school curricular materials. "Arab terrorism directed at Israeli civilians isn't a partisan point; it's a fact of history that's central to grasping not only Israeli society and poli- tics but also core attitudes of many Palestinian leaders and public," Stotsky added. "To omit this is to deny students a full understanding of the realities." Levin added, "The question has to be asked of the school committee and superinten- dent: Is the distorted, inac- curate PBS timeline staying or going?" CAMERA's research has showed that a number of textbooks, maps and hand- outs also routinely downplay or omit the Palestinians' repeated refusal of Israeli peace offers. "Instead, Israel is depicted falsely as unwilling to com- promise," Stotsky said. "That's demonstrably false history." Stotsky also said that stu- dents are receiving materials that conceal the religious com- ponent of the conflict, as well as the violent incitement against Israel and Jews that "saturates Palestinian political discourse." "These subjects cannot be omitted if you're going to have students study the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," Levin said. "Indoctrination can happen as much through the sin of omission as the sin of commission." Jonah Cohen is direc- tor of communications for CAMERA. From page 3A unprecedented declaration by an Arab leader. The public showing of warming ties between Israel and Egypt and the Bahraini declaration fall in line with the narrative often touted by Netanyahu over the past two years that a significant regional shift is occurring, and that Arab nations are becoming more pragmatic in their approach toward rela- tions with the Jewish state. Netanyahi,speaking at an event earlier this month hosted by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, noted the current shift in Arab sentiment to- wards Israel is more profound today than the improved relations seen following the 1993 Oslo Accords with the Palestinians and the 1994 Is- raeli peace treaty with Jordan.

According to Schanzer, this indicates the next war with Hezbollah "would likely be a two-front battle in Lebanon and Syria," which could also include other Iranian terror proxies in the region. The IDF official confirmed, "it is definitely possible and and advanced technol- ogy Using its "networked intel- ligence," the IDF is prepared to implement "a massive precision strike on a scale which far exceeds the assessed growth in Hezbollah's mili- tary [capability]," Orion said. Since 2006, Hezbollah has occasionally been given a glimpse of the "quality, scope and intimacy" of Israeli intel- ligence collected against it, the IDF official said, which has created a deterrence and quiet for ~he past 11 years. A rec nt purported Is- raeli airstike against a Syrian chemicalveapons facility Sept. 7, which curred during the massive I[F exercise, may have served as oe such glimpse into Israel's imlligence capability directed gainst the terror group andts allies. Israel iffar better prepared for the ne2 war with Hezbol- lah" than: was in the 2006, "What's happening now with the Arab bloc states has never before happened in our history--even when we signed agreements," Netanyahu said, Israel's Channel 2 reported. "What we have now is greater than anything else during Schanzer said. "We see now the appearance of stealth tank technology, the preparation for ground warfare and the possibility of tunnels into Israel as well as the prepara- tion for mass volleys of rockets launched by Hezbollah into Israel." The Israeli Air Force has also acquired several new state-of-the-art F-35 "Adir" stealth fighter jets, and in recent weeks the military un- veiled multiple revolutionary defense technologies that will soon be added to its arsenal. any other period in Israel's history." For his role in forwarding Arab relations with Israel, El- Sisi has been praised by many supporters of the Jewish state, who view him as an important ally in maintaining Egypt's 1979 peace treaty with Israel, fighting Islamic terrorism, and confronting Iran. While in New York this week, E1-Sisi also met with American Jewish leaders and discussed the Trump admin- istration's renewed efforts to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The talk fol- lows similar meetings the Egyptian president held ear- lier this year with American Jewish leaders--including the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organization Executive Vice Chairman and CEO Malcolm Hoenlein and others--at his presidential palace in Cairo. From page 5A doesn't attack the U.S.with its nuclear weapons. If the U.S. does not directly defeat North Korea in a clear-cut way now, its position as a superpower in Asia and worldwide will be destroyed and its ability to defend its own citizens will be called into question with increasing frequency and lethality.

From page 10A works, including by Edvard Munch and Gustav Klimt. "I'm worried we're coming to an era where there won't be Holocaust survivors on Earth, no living witnesses to tell the story," said Folman, who was born to Holocaust survivors whom he said told him and his sister "way, way too many" horrible stories from the genocide. As they disappear, "the entire story of the Holocaust risks be- coming something ancient so it's essential to find ways to preserve" interest in the Holocaust, he said during a Q&A in Paris. Anne, her sister and par- ents and several other Jews were deported in 1944 to be murdered following a raid by Nazi soldiers on the so-called secret annex where they lived in hiding with help from the Dutch resistance. Anne died seven months later in a con- centration camp. Her mother and sister also died. Only Otto survived, nd he edited his younger ughter's writings and had published in 1947. Folmarwho iswell-known internatinally for his film about Isrel's Lebanon War, "Waltz uth Bashir," said his firstreaction was to "immedi ely say no" after being app)ached by the Swit- zerland-ksed Anne Frank Foundatin, or Fonds. Folmarand Polonsky ini- tially tured down the offer, they said, ecause artistically they doubted their ability to make a contribution that would stand out from the many films, books, theater shows, operas and musicals that have been produced over the story of Anne Frank-- perhaps the world's most famous Holocaust victim following the publication in dozens of languages of her diary over the last seven decades. There has been "too much done around the story," Folman said. But he recon- sidered after talking to his 95-year-old mother, whom she said is now "living with the goal of seeing the pre- miere" of the film he is mak- ing about Anne Frank. Since the 1940s, many authorized and unauthor- ized adaptations of the Anne Frank story have been cre- ated in many media. In Japan alone, the Anne Frank story has been the subject of sev- eral comic books--graphic novels in the Japanese man- ga style. But these publica- tions were not authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation for historical accuracy cor- responding to Anne's actual writings. The film, Folman told JTA, will treat also the last "hor- rendous" seven months in Anne Frank's life, despite the absence of material on this period written by her. "We used other historical sources to address this part of her life," he said. "It was a condition of mine to work on this." From page 13A the Jewish holiday and the demonstrationwould fall dur- ing the Gothenburg Book Fair, when some 100,000 people are expected to gather in the city for the largest literary festival in Scandinavia. Swedish Jewish leaders cau- tiously praised the decision. The Jewish community "welcomes the Gothenburg administrative court's deci- sion to not allow the neo- Nazi group to march close to Gothenburg's synagogue on the holiest day of the Jew- ish year, "om Kippur," Aron Verstandi~, chairman of The Official Ouncil of Swedish Jewish Co'nmunities, said in a statemelt to JTA. "Even f the Council had wished hat the protest would ha~e been moved to a differen day, it views it as a positive development that the court took into consid- eration that Yore Kippur is celebrated on that day, which the police had not taken into consideration." The chairman of the Go- thenburg Jewish community, Allan Stutzinsky, said the court's ruling was "a signifi- cant improvement," noting that members could now walk to synagogue without fearing they would encounter neo-Nazis. "The ruling means that we are much safer," he told JTA in a statement. Earlier this month, Stut- zinsky said the community, which is typically under tight security, feared ha- rassment and physical threats both from the neo-Nazi marchers and potential left-wing coun- terprotesters. From page 14A group's "Nakba Week" events. ("Nakba," the Arabic word for "catastrophe," is the term Palestinians use to refer to the creation of Israel in 1948.) A spokesperson for the British Home Office told JNS. org, "We do not routinelycom- ment on individual cases," except to note that "applicants must provide evidence to show they meet the requirements of the immigration rules." Para- graph 320 of those rules refers to several categories of refusal that might have been applied to Tamimi, including a record of criminal convictions. In 2010, Tamimi was convicted of attacking and spitting on an Israeli policeman. Tamimiwas a guest speaker in July at the "Go Palestine" summer camp for Palestinian teenagers around the world, which was recently reported on by According to the camp organizers' account, the teens held an "emotional conver- sation" with the "amazing" Tamimi in her home July 12. The campers were "deeply in- spired" by "the resilience that [Nabi Saleh residents] showed in the face of hardship." -Tamimi did not respond to requests from for comments concerning her activities.
