(to the 23rd Psalm)


When battles were over
and calm was the land:
David the shepherd king
rested intent.
Bugle's not wailing
swords are in sheath,
The flock by still waters,
his people in peace.
Cup full with wine
and soul full with grace,
He praised the ONE!
who rules all the kings
and grazes all the sheeps
His pasture is the earth
and nations His herd.
Raising the cup he sang the Psalm:
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want."

Study Reports World-Wide
Rise in Abuse of Zionism

LONDON — A. recent
study by the World Jewish
Congress (WJC) reports
that in the six years since
the UN General Assembly
declared "Zionism equals
racism," the abuse of
Zionism on the interna-
tional scene has become so
deep-rooted and widespread
"that even states in the
West previously sympathe-
tic to Zionism are viewing
the term with increasing
caution and refraining from
using it."
The study — released
here by the WJC research
arm, the Institute of Jewish

Affairs, analyzes the defa-
mation of Zionism in inter-
national affairs and finds
that "abusive references to
Zionism are not confined to
Arab states and go far be-
yond direct reference to Is-
The distortion of Zionism
is "deliberate and calcu-
lated and not just a product
of sloppy thinking," the re-
port notes. Numerous deri-
sive examples are cited.
The WJC study was pre-
pared for the Institute by
Tony Lerman, noted spe-
cialist on the role of the Is-
lamic bloc in world affairs.

U.S. Jews Should Accept
Christian Support for Israel


(Copyright 1982, JTA, Inc.)

Jews have trouble accepting
Evangelical Christians as
allies in the effort to support
Israel in this country.
There is of course the long
tradition of the Evangelical
and fundamentalist Pro-
testant churches targeting
Jews for conversion. This
has aroused a wariness of
these groups that is prob-
ably more prevalent in the
small towns of the South
and Midwest than in the

NEW YORK — Volun-

In addition, despite the
large Jewish vote for
Ronald Reagan in 1980,
most American Jews are
still liberals or moderates
and differ greatly from the
Christian Right, made up of
fundamentalists and
Evangelicals, on many of
the social and other domes-
tic issues now being de-
Here is the crux of the
issue. American Jews
who have fought against
being stereotyped should
not stereotype others.
Just because most Jews
have differences with the
Christian Right on
domestic issues does not
mean they should label

all of them as racists and
Jews and Evangelical
Christians can stand to-
- gether in support of Israel,
support that has never been
needed more.
