factor has largely been mis-
sing. That is the unfortu-
nate tendency exhibited by
many writers and commen-
tators, who are Jewish, to
either bend over backwards
not to show any partiality
toward Israel or to indulge
in self-flagellation and be-
come overly critical.
This is nowhere more ap-
parent than in Washington
where the Washington Post
is read regularly by Con-
gressmen, government offi-
cials and opinion makers.
Without the competition of
another major daily since
the demise of the Washing-
ton Star a year ago, the
Post's readers have been fed
a steady stream of provoca-
tive headlines, biased news
coverage, sensationalist
photos and critical columns
and editorials, much of it
cranked out by Jewish jour-
nalists.
It is no wonder some dis-
gruntled readers have
begun referring to the
newspaper as the "Palestine
Post" (with apologies to the
original paper of the same
name — now the Jerusalem
Post).
* * *
Some of Israel's key
supporters in Congress
who are not so well
known — but who have
played vital roles — have
already been defeated in
primaries or have de-
cided to retire.
Heading the list are two
long-time members of the
House Foreign Affairs
Committee from different
sides of the aisle, Rep.
Jonathan Bingham, Demo-
crat of New York, and Rep.
Edward Derwinski, Repub-
lican of Illinois.
Due to the outcome of the
New York Congressional
redistricting, Bingham was
forced to run against an-
other incumbent Democrat,
Rep. Mario Biaggi. Bin-
gham was convinced of the
futility of such a contest and
is not running. He played a
leading role on the commit-
tee for the past 17 years, and
his articulate and eloquent
voice will be missed.

the GOP Senate nomina-
tion. He was a particu-
larly persistent and vocal
critic of the PLO.
* * *
Although it is being outs-
pent by its larger rival, the
Democratic National Com-
mittee is emerging from the
party's 1980 debacle with
renewed vigor — and strong
support for Israel. Under
the leadership of its chair-
man, Charles Manatt, head
of a top Los Angeles law
firm, the DNC produced an
excellent foreign policy
statement at its recent
"mini-convention" in
Philadelphia.
Among other things, it
states, "Israel remains more
than a trusted friend, a
steady ally and sister
democracy. Israel repre-
sents a strategic asset to the
United States, protecting
and defending U.S. inter-
ests in a unstable region of
the world against
encroachment by the Soviet
Union and against potential
threats to Western nations'
vital oil supplies."
With regard to Lebanon,
the statement added, "In-
ternational terrorism has
been dealt a severe blow and
Soviet influence has been
reduced. The Democratic
Party believes that the
United States should exert
every effort to reinstate
Lebanese sovereignty and
Israeli security."
This welcome DNC
statement is in contrast
with a report put out by
the Center for National
Policy — which has been
described as a Demo-
cratic "think tank" — and
attributed to the former
Secretary of State, Cyrus
Vance, his deputy, War-
ren Christopher, and
Harvard Prof. Stanley
Hoffman. To give some
"flavor" of this report, it
states inter alia, "The
fundamental obstacles to
peace are Israel's refusal
to move in the direction
of a settlement of the
Palestinian problem
entailing self-
determination for the
Another redistricting Palestinians . . ."
