The battleground is the same, but the weapons are different. Israel uses force, arrests, deportations and curfews. The most prominent Palestinian weapon is not, as it might seem, the stones thrown by the youths, but rather the general strikes. Last week, the strike was felt throughout the administered territories. Most conspicuous was the general strike in East Jerusalem, which was observed despite warnings by police they would take action against the striking shopkeepers. The affect of the strike on Rita Cohen To Be Honored On Feb. 11 By National Council Of Jewish Women When the Columbus Section, National Council of ; Jewish Women holds its New Members'; Luncheon on Thursday,; Feb. 11, Rita Cohen will be honored for her long-time involvement in Council's program of service.

Currently, she is a volunteer (CONTINUED ON PAGE 16) the Israeli economy is marginal. Many Arabs, mostly residents of the West Bank, have been showing up for work inside Israel. The closed stores, therefore, cause inconvenience and loss of income mostly to the Arabs themselves; But while they pay this price, the Arabs are also sending Israelis a message of unprecedented solidarity, which embraces the left and right, the young and the old generations, the religious and the secular camps. Israel is not free to use all the means possible in this war. Premier Yitzhak Sha- . mir reiterated that Israel's undertaking not to use excessive force limits its ability to put an end to the riots. World pressure, the watchful eyes of the news media and internal criticism have forced the security forces to use as much restraint as possible. Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin favors "beating" rather than shooting; But even as he spoke, a villager c of Mazraa A^Sharkiya, near' - Ramallah, was wounded, apparently from a rifle shot during a violent demonstration. One can safely assume that technically, Israel could have suppressed the "national uprising," as Arab nationalists like to describe it, much sooner, but with much more bloodshed. Instead, Israel seems, to have opted for more moderate measures to deal with the unrest, assuming that in this war of attrition it has longer staying power than the Palestinians. The Palestinians are well aware of the importance of time. The longer they can keep the issue of the ter- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 10) Columbus Jewish Federation Super Sunday Phone And Funday Filled With Community Spirit "Super Sunday PhOne and Funday combined an element of seriousness with fun and community spirit. The community really pulled togetherin an effort to bring a climax to the 1988 Columbus Jewish Community Campaign through phone calls that rasied $70,000 which will benefit the entire community," said Dr. Ron Erkis, 1988 Super Sunday chairman. More than 200 Columbus Jewish Federation volunteers, representing all ages and from all parts of the community, phoned over 2,00^ Jewish households last Sunday, Jan. 24.

Activities included sidewalk vendors and games sponsored by local synagogues and community organizations. Entertainment and special programs were held including a workshop for teens. "Super Sunday Phone and Funday was a terrific combination of community participation in a fun fundraising effort," said Norman Traeger, 1988 Jewish Community Campaign chairman. He added, "Not only were community members able to perform the mitzvah of tzedakah but were they were also given the opportunity to learn more about the organized Jewish community and enjoy the Funday actit vities."
