WASHINGTON — "The
domestic constituency for
anti-Israel work in the
United States is noisy but
diminutive," according to a
new report by the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee (AIPAC). But, "the
effort to mobilize large
numbers of Americans to
the Arab cause has failed,"
the report finds.
In the 160-page study,
"The Campaign to Discredit
Israel," AIPAC outlines the
strategy and tactics used by
enemies of the Jewish state
to undermine support for Is-
rael in America.
Focusing on the "artifi-
cial constituency" which
forms the backbone of sup-
port for anti-Israel activity
in the United States, the
AIPAC publication finds
some major strengths and
weaknesses in the effort. It
reports that the campaign
has found it particularly dif-
ficult to recruit Arab-
Americans of Christian-
Lebanese extraction f.who
comprise about 80 percent
of Americans of Arab des-
cent) largely because this
population is not attracted
to organizations sympathe-
tic to the PLO and Syria.
In addition, Israel's de-
tractors have had only
limited success in build-
ing coalitions with non-
Arab groups, and there is
a disproportionate re-
presentation of more
militant and extreme
organizations and indi-
viduals in their ranks.
Lakcing a large domestic
constituency, the study
finds that the campaign has
relied, to a considerable ex-
tent, on the services of
foreign agents and former
diplomats paid by various
Arab governments and the
Arab League to express the
anti-Israel message in an
American idiom. It has also
been successful in getting
corporations with extensive
business interests in the
Arab world to play a more
active role in influencing
U.S. Middle East policy-
making.
Although anti-Israel ac-
tivity in the United States
"reached a new level of in-
tensity" during the war in
Lebanon, according to
AIPAC, the campaign to
discredit Israel in the
United States "seems to
have been a rather dismal
failure," in spite of the most
favorable climate for anti-
Israel propaganda in mem-
ory.
Citing favorable public
opinion polls, Congres-
sional elections, and in-
creases in aid to Israel,
AIPAC concludes that the
campaign's greatest weak-
ness "seems to be the lack of
a large and mainstream
American constituency
committed to their cause,"
as well as "the strong and
natural bond between the
United States and Israel."
The third in a series of
monographs analyzing
various aspects of the
U.S.-Israel relationship,
"The Campaign to Dis-

credit Israel" contains
both an analysis of recent
anti-Israel political ac-
tivity in the United States
and an alphabetical di-
rectory of Israel's detrac-
tors. The directory pro-
vides background infor-
mation on organizations
and individuals who are
active in the effort to
weaken the bonds be-
tween the United States
and Israel, who seek to

enhance U.S.-Arab rela-
tions at the expense of Is-
rael, or who perform paid
services to Arab govern
ments purusing these go-

als.

"The Campaign to Dis-
credit Israel" is available
from the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee,
444 North Capitol St., N.W-
Suite 412, Washington,
D.C. 20001. There is a
charge for the publication.

Senior Service Corps Gives
Extra Help to Sinai Hospital

In November 1978, the
Jewish Vocational Service
(JVS), in cooperation with
Sinai Hospital, developed a
program whereby senior
citizens could volunteer.
This program provides the
hospital with auxiliary
help, while giving senior
citizens a worthwhile proj-
ect.
Highly motivated indi-
viduals with a need to vol-
unteer were recruited, and
the Senior Service Corps
came into existence.
Seniors with a desire to
remain productive and
active, even those with
hearing or vision limita-
tions, are likely candidates
for volunteer work. "Even if
a senior citizen has limited
mobility, he or she can still
be very useful," explained
Director of Volunteer Serv-
ices Cindy Lustig. "Some of
the seniors well into their
80s are as active as younger
volunteers."
Some of the seniors
work in the linen pack
room folding and wrap-
ping surgical sponges
and towels. The Gift Shop
uses members of the
Senior Service Corps for
sales and merchandising
work. The mail room and
dietetics department also
use senior volunteers.
"Senior volunteers don't
let their physical limita-
tions. prevent them from
lending a hand," said
Roberta Donaldson, direc-
tor of supply processing and
distribution (SPD), who
coordinates the volunteer
activity in her department.
The manual activity such as
sorting and packing equip-
ment, invoice slips and
supplies is good therapy for
arthritis sufferers, says
Donaldson, and at the same
time it provides essential
services for the hospital.
The Senior Service Corps
is more than just a volun-
teer program. After morn-
ing work hours, the volun-
teers get together for lunch
and a business/social meet-
ing. Group discussions on
current events and health
issues are led by Barbara
Peltz, coordinator of the
program at Sinai.
Sam Fischer, who is le-
gally blind, has volunteered
at Sinai for four years. He
explained, "This is not
work. This is our social club
and we are like one big fam-
ily. We look out for each
other and care about each
other." Some members of

the corps have established
long-lasting friendships
and have formed travelli
groups.
As volunteer Bessie
Leach, who just celebrated
an "80 plus" birthday, said.
"My volunteer day is my
favorite day. I wouldn't miss
Mondays for anything.
Even if I go on vacation, I
schedule my trip around my
volunteer days."
Bertha Fischer volun-
teers with her husband,
Sam. "We do it because
we're needed. We're not in-
dispensible, but we try to
make the workload easier
and help Sinai deliver the
best care."
