Moynihan Blasts U.S. Abstentions in the UN

State of Michigan Licensed


Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan
(D-N.Y.) declared that for
the United States to abstain
in United Nations Security
Council Resolutions against
Israel "is to acquiesce."
"I have been disappointed

that we seem to be letting

erate into the con,ditions of

Moynihan, a former United
States ambassador to the
UN, said. He was respond-
ing to questions from Rabbi
- William Berkowitz at Cong.
Bnai Jeshurun's "Dialogue
`80" series.
Moynihan explained that
in the 1970s the democ-
racies, which now number
about 35 countries, lost
their majority in the Gen-

eral Assembly. He said the
same thing appears to be
happening in the Security
Council even though the
U.S. as a permanent
member of the council can
veto any resolution.
"In the last nine resolu-
tions on Israel in the Se-
curity Council the U.S.
inexplicably voted for
one," (later disavowed by
President Carter); vetoed
one and abstained seven
times, Moynihan said.
The last time was Aug. 20

30-year commitment


to the Jewish community.

Of the two major party candidates for
President this year. only Governor Reagan
offers a long-standing record of support and
commitment to Israel and to the American
Jewish community. While Governor of Cali-
fornia, Ronald Reagan was awarded Israel's;
Medallion of Valor for his unfailing efforts .
on behalf of the sale of Israel Bonds in this
country. In 1967 Governor Reagan forceftflly
expressed his concern for Israel's safety at a
pro-Israel rally. And time and again. Gov-
ernor Reagan has declared Israel "a major
strategic asset to AmJrica" and has branded
the P.L.O. as a "terrorist organization - .
It is not just Governor Reagan's support
for Israel that we ask you to consider in this
election. Like so many others. American
Jews have recognized that we must have the
kind of confident leadership which Ronald
Reagan has always provided.
