Michel rejected the anal-
ogy with Iran. He said that
the Saudi regime has the
support of its people, as was
not the case with the - late
Shah of Iran.
Rep, Clarence Long (D-
Md.), the author of the re-

the arms sale, said that just

army in the world did not

the Saudis could not operate
the AWACS for more than a
week without U.S. partici-

Much has been said about
America's swing rightward
on the political spectrum. A
Ronald Reagan victory, sen-
timent for higher defense
appropriations, and support
for sweeping cuts in social
spending, seem to indicate
that the political landscape
has changed in the United
States since the times of
"Great Society" social legis-
lation and the peace move-
ment of the late 60s.
Students are often cre-
dited with being at the
forefront of that liberal
heyday. Jewish students
were also considered to be
active in the humanist

trend of those times.
According to a recent
study conducted by the
American Jewish Commit-
tee, Jewish students seem to
have shifted with the times.
In 1980, 93 percent of
Jewish freshmen charac-
terized themselves as "mid-
dle of the road." Of those
polled, 32 percent clung to
the label "liberal," yet only
1.9 percent described them-
selves as "left," as compared
to a 8.9 percent figure in
1970.
Participation in pro-
tests against U.S. military
policy has also dropped
significantly. While
Jewish students are still
three times more likely to
protest than their gentile
counterparts, only 9.8
percent of Jewish col-
legiates said in 1980 that
they would join such a
political demonstration.
This represents almost a
fifty percent drop since
ten years ago.
In analyzing this shift in
political expression, one
might look to various fac-

by making the contest over
AWACS a posthumous re-
ferendam on Mr. Sadat — a
frantic effort to court the
Saudis, who disowned him
and denounced his noblest
act. Other Americans have
run past the bier with equal
haste to exploit the murder
for their denunciations of
Isareli intransigence or
Soviet-sponsored terrorism.
"The death of large men
should have meaning. But it
will not be found in the
familiar political preoccu-
pations of the day. This
slain Egyptian leader defied
the conventions of his time.
Her merits a higher place in
memory."

sassination, Sadat's death
proved that the real threat
to Mideast governments is
internal, not external.
Michel and Zablocki had
argued that the AWACS
would not threaten Israel
because they would be used
by the Saudis only to protect
themselves from external
threats to the oilfields.
On Sunday, the New
York Times printed an
editorial criticizing the
Reagan Administration
for using Sadat's death as
another rationale in sup-
port of the AWACS sale.
The Times said:
"The Reagan Administ-
ration demeans its tribute

tors. Israel could be at the
root of this swing. Many
Jews split with the left on
the issue of Palestinian
rights. While some campus
groups have adopted the
PLO as a bonafide libera-
tion movement, needless to
say, many Jews feel alien-
ated by such a political
orientation. In fact, many
student organizational
workshops are devoted to
combatting the high profile
of the Palestinian
nationalist sentiment on
campus.
Another cause of the
swing to the right might be
the argument cogently pre-
sented by Jewish conserva-
tives. Such idealogues claim
that it is difficult for domes-
tic supporters of Israel to
argue for increasing U.S.
military aid to Israel, while
advocating smaller defense
budgets. It must be stated
emphatically, however,
that there is no dichotomy
between the term liberal
and support for Israel.
Senator Edward Kennedy
ID-Mass.), a staunch lib-
eral, is considered by many
as one of Israel's best friends
on Capitol Hill.
Another diverging point
between Jewish students

and leftist peers is affirma-
tive action for minorities.
While such programs may
not have been in full bloom
in the 60s, fierce competi-
tion for placement in college
and especially professional
schools has hardened seg-
ments of Jewish student
opinion on the program that
has aided minority students
obtain academic opportun-
ity.
According to the AJ-
Committee study, only
31.2 percent of Jewish
freshmen in 1980 approve
of affirmative action, six
percent less than gentile
students. Ten years ago,
the figures were re-
versed, as Jews favored
the program by 10 per-
cent higher numbers
than the average student.

In regard to Jewish is-
sues, the emphasis on cam-
pus usually consists of de-
fending Israel to the at-
large university commun-
ity, a task which often pits
Jews against liberal
friends. On general issues of
interest, however, Jews
have basically maintained
their humanist ideals, al-
-though support of affirma-
tive action may be low.

`Revived' Nixon Is Criticized

The following article is
excerpted from an Anthony
Lewis item in the Oct. 12
New York Times, entitled
"Back to Nixonism":
Just a few weeks ago a
newly-disclosed White
House tape showed us the
veritable Nixon: a* Presi-
dent who talked and
thought like a mobster.
There he was, agreeing with
H.R. Haldeman 's sugges-
tion in 1971 that "thugs"
and "murderers" be used
against anti-war protesters
— to "knock their heads
off," as Mr. Nixon put it.
And there he was, asking
Mr. Haldeman: "Aren't the
Chicago Seven all Jews?"
That Ronald Reagan and
his people should be insen-
sitive to the symbolism in-
volved is surprising. That
'their sense of self-interest
should fail is even more
puzzling.
Do they really. want
Richard Nixon to be seen as
a spokesman for their Ad-
.

ministration? Do they like
him as a point man on the
AWACS deal? Are they
pleased when he flies from
the Sadat funeral to Saudi
Arabia, to meet King
Khalid and the rest of its
leadership?

JERUSALEM — Willy
Agmoi has become Israel's
first Jewish muchtar of an
Arab- village. The retired
northern regional council-
man accepted the volun-
tary, unofficial position of
representing the interests
of the Arab Al-Aramsha
Bedouin tribe, recently
housed by the government
in a settlement near Idmit.

One who makes up his
mind to study Torah and not
to work but to live on char-
ity profanes the name of
God and brings the Torah
into contempt.
