fend itself."
During the question
and answer period which
was not limited to Jewish
issues, Carter said he un-
derstands the issues that
concern Jewish voters be-
cause he receives sound
information from his
staff. He noted that many
of his staff members are
Jews.
Pat Caddell, Carter's
pollster, was asked about
the polling his firm does
for Saudi Arabia.
He said the client has no
input in the polls it takes
and he will not do any
work for Middle East
clients seeking informa-
tion about American
Jews. He said the work
being done for Saudi
.Arabia only involves
American attitudes to-
ward that country.
In New York last week,
Sen. Walter F. Mondale,
the Democratic candidate
for Vice President, said
that both the Democratic
and Republican Parties
should make clear their
support of Israel so that
her adversaries can see
that "this is not a political
position but an - American
position."
Speaking at the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee,
Mondale stressed that
the United States must
both support Israel and
seek peace in the Middle
East. But in seeking
peace, he said, the U.S.
must not tie its aid to . Is-
rael to any blueprint or
timetable.
Mondale, responding to
a question about the Pales-
tinians, said "Israel
should decide with whom
she will negotiate. I don't
think Israel can be
criticized for refusing to
negotiate with an entity
that is not a state" and that
calls for Israel's destruc-
tion, he said.
Mondale this week
blasted Libya, and the
selection of the Libyan
representative to be pres-
ident of the United Na-
tions Scurity Council in
the upcoming session.
Mondale said Libya
should be on trial in the
UN for backing hijackers
rather than presiding
there.
In response to a ques-
tion from Jerry Goodman,
executive director of the
National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, Mondale
said that .Carter has
pledged to make the ques-
tion of freer emigration
for Soviet Jewry a "prior-
ity position" in his deal-
ings with the USSR. He
accused the Ford Ad-
ministration of refusing
to stand up for issues of
"human liberty and de-
cency. -
When Rabbi Bernard
Goldenberg, an official of
Torah Umesorah, the Na-
tional Society for Hebrew
Day Schools, asked what
a Carter-Mondale Ad-
ministration would do

about federal aid to chil-
dren in parochial schools,
Mondale said he had al-
ways supported provid-
ing social service funds to ,
children in private and
religious schools.
He said the best solu-
tion would be a proposed
tax credit for dependents
which would allow pa-
rents to have extra
money to be used for pri
vate and religious school:,
or any other purpose they
might wish.
In Israel, Golda Meir
has denied comparing
Carter with Adolph Hit-
ler or saying whe was af-
raid of him because he
was a Baptist.
Replying to reports in
Israel of a Washington
Star story supposedly
quoting Vice President
Nelson Rockefeller, Mrs.
Meir said she has met
Carter twice and was im-
pressed by him. •

Michigan Dems
OK Terror Plank

Three Oakland County
Democrats were success-
ful Sunday in adding a
strongly-worded anti-
terrorism plank to the
Michigan Democratic
Party platform which was
adopted at the state con-
vention in Detroit.
Sheldon Klimist, Oak-
land County party trea-
surer; Alex Bensky, pre-
cinct delegate; and
Dorthea Becker, candi-
date for Congress in the -
19th District proposed
the amendment to be
added to the pro-Israel
plank in the platform.
. The amendment chas-
tised "the inaction of the
UN Security Council on
the issue of terrorism",
called for political and
economic sanctions
against governments
who aided terrorists, and
congratulated Israel for
its rescue of hostages at
Uganda s Entebbe Air-
port.

Sen. Percy Slaps
Third World Meet

WASHINGTON
Senator Charles H. Percy
(R-Ill.) charged the sum-
mit meeting of the non-
aligned nations in Sri
Lanka with "interna-
tional political mischief."
Percy said that the all
out attack on Israel at ti
summit meeting was "in-
flammatory and unwise."
The final declaration of
the summit threatened a
move to oust Israel from
the United Nations.
Percy noted that Israel
had shown a desire .to
work toward peace by
signing the Sinai agree-
ment with Egypt, by
showing restraint in the
Lebanese crisis, and by
taking steps to reduce
tensions with Syria on
the Golan Heights.
