Laud March Efforts to Halt Anti-Israelism

(Continued from Page 1)
But Jewish organiza-
tions that did not endorse
the march because of ob-

jections to some of the
rally's sponsors, parts of
its original platform, and
its scheduling for the

Sabbath, have not re-
versed their decision.

tee, one of the organiza-
tions, said "we appreciate
the good faith efforts" on the
part of the march leader-
ship, but still considers it "a
serious mistake to detract
from the central theme" of
civil rights by including
such issues as nuclear dis-
armament, Central
America and the Middle
East in the march's agenda.
A spokesman for the
World Zionist Organization
— American Section, an-
other organization that has
not reversed its decision,
agreed that the "conces-
sions made by the sponsors
of the event were good," but
said that his organization
"was not mollified, not ap-
peased, nor seduced" by the
revised platform.
He stressed that the
changes did not affect the
"careless" scheduling of the
event for Saturday and the
anti-Israel leanings of some
of the rally's sponsors such
as Rev. Jesse Jackson and
former Sen. James
Abourezk, who is now
chairman of the
American-Arab
Anti-
Discrimination Committee.
At the press conference
in Washington, Rep. Wal-
ter Fauntroy (District of
Columbia), national di-
rector of the march, said
that the day chosen for
the march "was the date
closest to the Aug. 28
date" of the original
march.
He noted there were ob-
jections to the broadening of
concerns from the areas of
jobs and freedom, "to in-
clude opposition to the es-
calating arms race and the
advocacy of non-violent
resolutions to conflicts
around the world."
"Some Jewish organiza-
tions," he said, believing
that the call to peace might
be interpreted as an attack
on Israel, "requested assur-
ances that the legislative
package to be agreed upon
will not explicitly or im-
plicitly call for cuts in the
economic or military aid
package to Israel."
Fauntroy and the rest of
the march leadership,
which included Coretta
Scott King, wife of the slain
civil rights leader; Benja-
min Hooks, executive &rec-
tor of the National Associa-
tion for the Advancement of
Colored People; and Dr.
Joseph Lowery, president of
the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference,
"responded to (the) concern"
of the Jewish organizations,
Fauntroy said.
"It is not our intention
to single out Israel," he
said. "We worked on a
revision of a proposed
draft of the peace posi-
tion paper so as not to
appear to single out Is-
rael for attack."

The letter from Faun-
troy and Mrs. King also
tried to allay fears that
the march would turn
into an anti-Israel rally.

The letter further assured
the UAHC that in the case
where a divisive act or
statement is made — e.g.,

one that is anti-Israel or
anti-Semitic, or defamatory
to any group in the coalition
— the co-chairs will pub-
licly disavow such a state-
ment.
