Opponent Claims Findley
Lacks 'Objectivity' on M.E.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. —
U.S. Rep. Paul Findley (R-
Ill.) has lost his objectivity
on Middle East issues, ac-
cording to Dick Durbin,
Findley's opponent in the
November election.
Durbin cited Findley's re-
cent denunciations of Israel
and longtime support of the
PLO as evidence of the Con-
gressman's biased views.
In a telegram to President
Reagan earlier this month,
Findley asked for a halt in
military aid to Israel, charg-
ing that Israel had misused
American weapons during
the invasion of Lebanon.
"Rep. Findley, despite the
fact that he is the ranking
Republican on the House

the executive director of
Jewish National Fund in
Michigan was made at the
August board meeting of
the JNF.

lan began his career serving
in Jewish organizations and
institutions in Canada.

JERUSALEM — Weath-

With farmers facing

in Jerusalem and prayed for
rain. The heavens opened
and the drought ended.
The weather forecasters
say no rain was in sight
when the rains came.

BONN — Israel commit-
ted "gigantic crimes" _dur-

with the Palestinians. He
