"The failure is quantitative as well as qualitative," said Theodore Freedman, : ADL's program director, in presenting the study to the ADL's 66th National Commission meeting here. The study was conducted during the' past year by Glen S. Pate, an assistant professor in the Department of Secon- dary Education at the- University of Arizona. "" Pointing out that even the five books with the most extensive coverage on the subject were found wanting,' Freedman declared that ""this woeful deficiency spurs us to raise serious questions about the kind of education our children aret "receiving.". . ~ ~ . - -Henrent on- tb- say^tWrt*-- "even'among these five—the best of the lot—none deals ' satisfactorily with the causes of the Holocaust or the role of the United States; none has suggested reading for students; only one refers ' to resistance; (one uses the term, 'genocide,' and one the term, 'Holocaust'); three do not mention the^Nuremberg trials, and none refers to the survivors." The- study by Pate was,' , made under the auspices of ' (CONTINUED ON PAGE 10) , Where Do You Park A Camel? ByYitzshakSlnjrgil - EILAT, > (JTA)-The Josephthal Hospital here, ' one of Israel's most modern .and best equipped medical institutions, boasts a large ' parking lot and a helicopter landing pad but lacks facilities for the mode of transportation used by its many Bedouin patients—camels and donkeys. The hospital; the'southernmost in Israel, treats Bedouins from the desert reaches of the deep Negev who travel on four ; legs instead of four wheels. An ill, elderly Bedouin ar- • rived' at the admissions building the other day on camel back. But there was no place to "park" his beast and no one to water and feed it. The hospital authorities are seriously considering building a "dock" for the "ship of the desert."

This mission is sponsored by the ' 1980 United Jewish Fund Campaign Young Men's & Young Women's Division. The purpose of the Young Leadership Mission is to sen- -. sitize young Jewish men & women to the needs of Israel and to strengthen their Jew-** ish commitment so that they will become, involved in ' leadership capacities in the Federation, the local agencies and the general Jewish community. Thus far, 65 young men & women have participated on the Young Leadership Missions held the past 2 years. Serving as Chairman pf the first mission was Jeff Paine, and Gregg Robins served as ' Chairman of the second mission. These former participants collectively pledged over $100,000; while on their respective missions to Israel, which represented an increase of nearly 100% over their giving in the previous year. As expected, each participant in some way has become meaningfully involved in the Jewish Community. , Preceding the actual 11- day trip, which is coordinated by the United Jewish Appeal in New York, a special preliminary program \ !U be held, -The purpose of the program is to orient the group to their basic itiner- ticipants to key issues and concerns of Israel and the American Jewish Community.

The Cabinet acted unanimously at the request of Finance Minister Simc'ia Ehrlich who claimed that Rasinn had reneged on a promise not to attack the government at public forums. Rasinn, who is presently visiting the U.S., was not available for comment. His relations with the government and especially Ehrlich, began to deteriorate last month after the Cabinet was unable to agree on budget cuts.' He told a newspaper interviewer at the time that "the government and the Premier are not serious" about solving economic problems and charged that Premier Menachem Begin "is completely out of the economic problems." Asked how he could attack the government that employed him, Rasinn said he was hired to give economic advice and that, was exactly what he was doing. By Joseph Polakoff 'WASHINGTON, (JTA)- The Carter Administration has officially opened the dooV for "Palestinian^" in Jerusalem, - Lebanon and wherever else they may be living to enter the Israeli-. Egyptian-U.S. peace process related to the West Bank and Gaza. The Administration did not specifically name. Jerusalem in making known its decision Friday but said that talks are to begin by the U.S. officials with "a number of Palestinians both inside and outside of the West Bank and Gaza." .,-. ■ Since all of Jerusalem-Including East Jerusalem- has been part of Israel since 1967, the U.S. decision not to exclude the holy city explicitly is certain to create serious U.S.-Israeli . difficulties. The Carter Administration decision came in response to an "urgent" "Saudi Arabian. call in Riyadh for.the U.S. to istart&fan immediate dia-" " logue" withr "the Palestine Liberation Organization., The Administration reiterated, however, it will continue its long-standing conditions against talk with the PLO itself. The U.S. decision on the widened scope of its "talks" became known when the Jewish Telegraphic Agency inquired at the State Department about the Saudi, suggestion in a newspaper report. <■ . V. Saudi Arabian Crown . Prince Fahd suggested in Riyadh that U.S.-PLO talks could lead'to the PLO accepting- Security Council Resolution 242 and acknowledge Israel's right to exist. These are requirements set down by President Carter before U.S. talks begin with the PLO. The PLO receive? major financial support from Saudi Arabia where tens of thousands of Palestinians occupy important positions in the oil rich country's petroleum industry and thus have a grip on the country's economy and security. • In an interview wjtii I^w York Times columnist Anthony Lewis, Fahd stated "it is incumbent on the U.S. to talk to the PLO because it is a, if not the, political fact in the conflict. It is the sole legitimate representative*of the Palestinian people." U.S. Understands Fahd's Concern "We understand Crown Prince .Fahd's concern that the legitimate rights 7°f the ..Palestinians must be dealt with as part of ain/ comprehensive peace," the State Department said in a prepared statement in response to questions from ihe JTA. "The question is the central focus in the negotiations now underway," the Department added. "As you know, both the Camp David frameworks and the letters by President (Anwar) Sadat and Prime Minister Begin sent to President Carter March 26 call for Palestinian participation in these negotiations." "We desire that participation and will continue to work for it in the days ahead," the State Depart ment added. "In this con-, junction, obviously we will be talking to a number of Palestinians both inside and outside the West Bank and -Gaza." Asked whether going "outside" the areas under Israel's administration would include the PLO,' the State Department said, "we understand the role of the PLO in the Arab world. Our position has been spelled out a number of times by the President and Secretary of State. It remains as we have stated it."
