JEWISH ANXIETY: A mood of anxiety is developing
among the leaders of major Jewish organizations over the
growing popularity of the New Right movement in the
United States, especially over the growing influence of the
New Christian Right, the Moral Majority, and other ex-
treme Christian religious groups affiliated with the New
The New Right as a movement is not considered anti-
Semitic. However, there is no doubt that within some of \
these 40 groups there are individual members who main-
taro anti-Jewish sentiments.
THE "NEW RIGHT" AND JEWS: On domestic is-
sues the New Right is opposed to big government, Social -/
Security, a minimum wage, full employment legislation, `-`
labor unions, open immigration, Affirmative Action, gov-
ernment support of corporations in trouble, and gun con-
trol. It favors the death penalty and tax cuts. On family
issues it is opposed to the Equal Rights Amendment, ab
tion, pornography, homosexuality and school busing.
favors classroom prayer and censorship of school textbooks.
On the international issues it is opposed to detente with the
Soviet Union, trade with Communist bloc countries, recog-
nition of the People's Republic of China and the SALT II. It
asserts that the U.S. government is too lenient with Russia
and ardently advocates strong national defense.
The Christian New Right, which is closely allied with
the secular New Right, is composed of right wing fun-
damentalist Christian groups and is of great concern to
American Jewish leaders. This, not only because of its aim
to establish the United States as "a Christian republic," but
also because of the actions and statements by some of its
spokesmen during the last months — like the demarid for a
"Christian Bill of Rights", voiced by Jerry Falwell, head of
the Moral Majority and the assertion by Rev. Bailey Smith,
president of the Southern Baptist Convention, that "God
does not hear the prayer of a Jew."
The secular New Right conducts a strategy of
capitalizing on the people's discontent. It hopes to
capture the Presidency of the U.S. in the 1980s. It is
well financed; highly organized, and skilled in organ-
izational tactics. Its leadership is of high caliber and
knows how to utilize modern campaign techniques. It
is a coalition of anti-establishment rebels and political
mavericks seeking to mobilize the middle class
through social protest and to organize the dislocated
and disgruntled against the upper class.
It claims that the federal government is too remote
from the people. It stresses the need of a new government to
restore fiscal responsibility, military preparedness and a
more family-church-neighborhood oriented culture. It dis-
dains party labels, insisting they are no longer relevant.
THE "NEW RIGHT" AND ISRAEL: So far there is a
difference between the secular New Right and the Chris-
tian New Right, although both are allied. The New Right
does sot speak of a "Christian" America. The Christian
New Right is against religious pluralism and wants the
United States to be governed by "Christian morality."
There is also a difference between the two with regard
to Israel.
Some New Rightists have spoken in opposition to the
terrorism of the Palestine Liberation Organization, but the
secular New Right generally ignores the Middle East is-
In contrast, the religious New Right is pro-Israel.
This is based on the theology of the Fundamentalists
that there will be an ingathering of Jews to biblical
Palestine and that the establishment of a Jewish state
is a precondition to the second coming of Jesus.
Orthodox Jewish groups in the United States feel that
Jews should be cautious in fighting the New Right even
though there may be within its ranks such groups whP"
include anti-Semitically inclined members.
