All admissions at TEL AVIV (JTA) - Israel will continue to take the initiative in its war against terrorism, Defense . Minister Yitzhak Rabin promised last week, even if it sometimes makes mistakes, as happened recently when an intercepted private Libyan jet turned out not to be carrying the top terrorist leaders believed to have been aboard. The war against terrorism must be waged by daring, unconventional means, Rabin told a group of settlers in northern Israel. "We have to show initiative. We have to be daring even if we do not always achieve our objectives in full. Yesterday we did not achieve our full aims, maybe not even partially," he said. But the Defense Minister stressed that terrorism cannot be defeated on the basis only of retaliation for specific acts. He said the Arab countries continue to finance .international'terrorism. They provide terrorist organizations with funds and shelter, training bases and aid via diplomatic pouches. He accused some governments in Europe of not joining the fight against international terrorism and in fact distinguishing between "good" and "bad" terrorists. . Israel was Embarrassed - Israel was clearly embarrassed by the incident which indicated a serious failure of Cantor Benjamin Maissner To Open Cantorial Series At Temple Israel Cantor Benjamin Maissner, cantor and music director of Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto, Canada, will be the opening artist in the Temple Israel Cantorial Series "Cantorial Music Through the Ages." His program, entitled "The Validity of Melody — An Overview," will be held Friday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. in the sanctuary. Cantor Maissner, who was born in Israel, sang as a boy cantor from the age of nine under the direction of the Hazzan Shlomo Ravitz. He played the violin and completed his course of study at the Tel Aviv Music Conservatory. Cantor Maissner came to the United States in 1965 where he attended the Hebrew Union College School of Sacred Music. Following his graduation, he studied and performed with the Opera Workshop of the Philadelphia Musical Academy and served as cantor for the Germantown (Philadel phia) Jewish Center. He joined Holy Blossom in 1979. Cantor Benjamin Maissner Cantor Maissner's performance experience is extensive having sung on radio and TV and in private cantorial concerts around the world. He has studied under such well known cantors as Leib Glantz, Moshe Gan- choff and his uncle, Israel Alter. Canter Maissner has served on the. Exeuctive Board of the Cantors intelligence and a high degree of cunning on the part of terrorist leaders. Israeli intelligence had what it considered sufficient evidence that such Palestinian terrorists as George Habash and Abu Nidal were passengers in the Gulfstream executive jet forced by the Israel Air Force to land at an air base in northern Israel. The Libyan aircraft was enroute from Benghazi, .Libya, to Damascus with nine passengers and three crew. The passengers turned out to be Syrian political figures returning to Damascus from a conference of Arab radicals in Tripoli, the Libyan capital. After a thorough check of the identities of those aboard, Israel released the plane four-and-a- half hours after intercepting it. The two-day conference, chaired by Libyan leader Col,.JVluammar Qaddaf i, was attended by delegates from 22 hard-line Arab movements, including Palestinian terrorist groups opposed to Palestine Liberation Organization chief Yasir Arafat, Habash, who heads the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was among them. He boasted that he had foiled Israel's efforts to catch the "big fish." Abu Nidal is the leader of the terrorist gang held responsible for the Dec. 27 attacks at the Rome and Vienna airports, which resulted in the deaths of 19 people. His group operates under a variety of names and while it is said to have no more than a few hundred members, its record of assassinations — PLO officials as-well as Israelis — makes it one of the most dangerous terrorist organizations. It is supported by Qaddafi and also, according to Israel, by the Syrian government. Terrorists like Habash and Nidal are wily. They rarely sleep in the same building twice and switch planes at the last minute when they travel. That apparently is what they did when they left Tripoli. Jewish National Fund Establishes Forest Of Trees In Israel To Honor Memory Of Challenger Astronauts In response to an outpour1 ing of sympathy around the nation, the Jewish National Fund has established a forest of trees in Israel to honor the memory of the seven men and women who died when the Challenger space shuttle exploded. - Among the seven was Dr. Judith Resnik ' of Akron, Ohio, the first Jewish woman astronaut. The Challenger- Forest will be located in the American Independence Park in Jerusalem, next to the John F. Kennedy Memorial and Peace Forest. The presence of teacher Christa McAuliffe on this ill- fated shuttle has deeply affected school children throughout the nation. Many of these youngsters looked forward to watching her "class In space." Meyer Hoffman, president of the Columbus Council, states, "It is with this in mind that a letter was sent to all Columbus and surrounding area religious schools, asking them to participate in this project. Plantingtrees in the "Challenger Forest" symbolizes a meaningful and lasting response by-students and teachers."
