EEC Rejects
Israel Penalty

Close Races Featured in Nov. 2 Elections

By MORRIS J. AMITAY

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
The European Economic
Community (EEC) rejects
economic or other sanctions
against Israel for its actions
in Lebanon but plans to ex-
pand its contacts with the
Palestine Liberation
Organization, Premier and
Acting Foreign Minister
Andries van Agt told the
Dutch Parliament's Foreign
Affairs Committee last
week.

WASHINGTON — What
should friends of Israel look
for on election night, Nov.
2? The 1982 races for Senate
and House involve a
number of contests of un-
usual interest, some of
which are still too close to
call.
Strong Israel supporters
in the Senate who should
have little trouble being
re-elected for a six-year
term are Democrats Ted
Kennedy of Massachusetts,
Henry "Scoop" Jackson of
Washington, Pat Moynihan
of New York, Spark Mat-
sunaga of Hawaii and Bill
Proxmire of Wisconsin,
along with Republican John
Heinz of Pennsylvania.
A few of Israel's Demo-
cratic backers in the Senate
are having a tougher time
but should pull out vic-
tories. Howard Metzen-
baum of Ohio who is staving
off a late challenge from a
State Senator; Paul Sar-
banes of Maryland who

He said there was "no
wisdom" in applying eco-
nomic sanctions. He noted
that even Greece, the
severest critic of Israel
among the 10 EEC
member-states, agreed.
Meanwhile, the second
chamber of Parliament has
scheduled a plenary debate
this week on Israel's re-
sponsibility for the mas-
sacre of Palestinians at the
Shatila and Sabra refugee
camps in west Beirut last
month.

seems to be clearly ahead;
Don Riegle of Michigan, and
Dennis Deconcini in
Arizona have become favo-
rites for re-election, along
with Minority Leader
Robert Byrd of West Vir-
ginia and Lloyd Bentsen of
Texas who are maintaining
strong leads.
In the same category are
Jim Sasser of Tennessee
and Lawton Chiles of
Florida.
Closer races are pre-
dicted for Democratic
freshman George Mitch-
ell of Maine and Senator
Quentin Burdick of
North Dakota.
Republican stalwarts
Lowell Weicker of Connec-
ticut and Dave Durenberger
of Minnesota are in see-saw
races and the outcomes bear
watching election night.
The results of the crucial
Connecticut race will prob-
ably be the first in:

good for re-election at this

point are John Danforth of
Missouri and Bill Roth of
Delaware.
There are a number of
challengers running for the
Senate who have expressed
positions supportive of Is-
rael and stand a reasonable
chance of election: They are
Democratic Gov. Jerry
Brown of California who is
in a very tight race but ap-
pears to have momentum in
his favor, Chic Hecht, the
Jewish former Republican
State Senate minority
leader who is mounting a
strong challenge in Nevada;
Democrat Julius Michael-
son, the Jewish former
Rhode Island attorney gen-
eral who is running hard;
and Jeff Bingaman of New
Mexico who may pull off an
upset.
In a few races, the sup-
portive Senate challen-
gers are clearly behind
but may have a long shot
chance at victory. Repub-
lican Haley Barbour,
running in Mississippi, is
looking better each day.
Democrat Ted Wilson in
Utah is still running hard.
Democrat Jim Guest in
Vermont has made good
progress and Wyoming
Democrat Rodger
McDaniel is conceded an
outside chance. In these
races, however, they are
clearly underdogs frying
to unseat popular in-
cumbents.
There are a number of
Senate races where both
candidates are strong sup-
porters of Israel. Notable
examples are in New Jersey
where Rep. Millicent Fen-
wick and Frank Lautenberg
are facing each other. A
similar situation occurs in
Delaware where Dave
Levinson is running against
Senator William Roth.
Jewish State Senator Har-
riet Woods has been
strongly challenging Sena-
tor Danforth, although her
prospects are not considered
good.

Turning to the House of
Representatives, there are
literally hundreds of Is-
rael's supporters running
for re-election or challeng-
ing for the 435 seats. But
some races take on consid-
erable importance due to
selected factors such as the
candidates' seniority and
influence in Congress, a
position on a key committee
dealing with foreign affairs
legislation, an opponent's
record on Israel-related is-
sues and the closeness of the
races.
In California, Democratic
Rep. Phil Burton is running
in the toughest campaign in
his long career as an inf-
luential supporter of Israel.
At this time he is neck-
and-neck with his opponent.
First-term Rep. Sam
Gejdenson of Connec-
ticut, a member of the
Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee, seems to be staving
off a strong challenge
from his opponent.
A race of considerable
importance has shaped up
in Florida where a senior
member of the Foreign Af-
fairs Committee and strong

friend of Israel, Rep. Dante
Fascell (D) is being strongly
challenged.
Two races of significance
are taking place in Illinois.
Senior House Member Sid
Yates (D) who sits on the
important foreign opera-
tions appropriations sub-
committee is facing strong
opposition but should pull
out a win. The second, a race
of unusual interest, where
Dick Durbin (D) challenges
Rep. Paul Findley (R).
Findley, a longtime
spokesman for the PLO and
ranking minority member
of the foreign affairs sub-
committee on the Middle
East, has been outspokenly
critical of Israel. Durbin has
a good chance of defeating
Findley, which would be a
major accomplishment in
the House.
Maryland is the scene of a
race of considerable interest
where veteran chairman of
the appropriations foreign
operations subcommittee,
Rep. Clarence Long (D), a
staunch Israel supporter,
looks like a winner at this
time, but not for certain.
A New York race which
will impact on legislation
effecting Israel is between
two incumbent Con-
gressman forced to run
against each other due to
redistricting. Rep. Ben
Gilman is running against
Rep. Peter Peyser (D).
