Would You Vote or This Jewish Candidate?

In every political period
when there was discussion
of the possibility of electing
a Catholic as President, the
question always arose
whether a Jew had a chance
for the highest office in the
land.
This question was re-
peated when the Catholic
John F. Kenneday did at-
tain the glory of the White
House.
The query recurs and
there are the conflicting
views whether prejudice
can be overcome.

berstam's presidential

Levine. A super-salesman,
a real estate manipulator,
an ambitious fellow turned
millionaire, Levine turns to
politics. The Democratic
leaders choose him when
their top man turns mur-

be exchanged for a sensa-

doctor, emerging as a bril-
liant novelist, doesn't mince
words. His appeal is to a
mass readership that will
love his cliches. He also
philosophizes about human
conduct and the changing of
minds by those in political
power.
The concluding chapter, a
sort of scrutiny of a success-
ful candidate who is waiting
to be called to the inaugura-
tion ceremony, is entitled
"Reflections — January
1989." In Levine's mind
there are flashbacks to
other Presidents, including
Carter, who clamped down
and cut off the nation's
anger "when Carter cut off
their electricity." There is
this concluding paragraph
as Levine is called to join his
family to the inauguration
stand:
"Levine listened to the
clanging voices and knew
the secrets, knew that they

kind of Jew who succeeds to
it, will be subject of much
debating and controversy.
—P.S.

"Was he a man without
convictions, he won-
dered? No, for his
strongest conviction was
that convictions were
dangerous, general prin-
ciples unsound, justice
fleeting, and error com-
mon. In that he felt he of-
fered something that his
predecessors, politicians
all — yes, even
pisenhower: — had left.
They had been able to
'point to a body of posi-
tions taken and charac-
terized themselves: yes, I
am a conservative; yes, I
am a liberal; yes, I am a'
pragmatist. He could not,
need not, do that. The
press had not been able
to do it. There was a clean
slate. There was hope
yet."

Israelis Fear
Pension Loss
in Job Change

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
survey conducted by the
Jerusalem Brookdale Insti-
tute for Social Research dis-
covered that 45 percent of
Israeli wage-earners would
like to change their jobs but
do not for fear of losing their
pension rights.
The results of the survey
were cited by Minister for
Social Betterment Israel
Katz, who is seeking re-
- forms of the general pension
law that would allow work-
ers to carry over their pen-
sion rights when they
change jobs in order to
facilitate mobility within
the work force.
He also wants to extend
pensions to the 350,000 Is-
raeli workers presently
without a pensidn plan .

Even out of context this
portrays the Jewish Presi-
dent Levine. The Jewish
reader would surely call
such image a candidate to
be rejected. But it is 1989,
and who, therefore, can tell
what kind of constituency,
what kind of an American
Jewry would fall prey to the
Levine in the Halberstam
story?
At any rate, the kind of
President portrayed, the

The U.S. agreed to sell
Iran 160 aircraft in May,

asking for 140 more, the

U.S. Air Force Is Worried
About Supply of F-16 Jets

WASHINGTON — The
U.S. Air Force is concerned
that foreign sales of the
F-16 fighter-bomber will in-
terfere with U.S. pilot train-
ing, availability of spare
parts and production
schedules.
According to Aviation
Week and Space Technol-
ogy magazine, a General
Accounting Office report
cites Air Force sources as
saying that "F-16 deploy-
ment will require that
seven bases be opened in six
countries in 18 months."
