ELECTION RESTRICTIONS: Jewish non-profit
organizations which, like all non-profit organizations, have
tax exempt status, and are forbidden by Internal Revenue
regulations to influence election campaigns.
Jewish federations, community councils and organiza-
tions in the tax exempt category scrupulously avoid any
activity in behalf of or in opposition to any candidate. The
prohibited activities include, among other things, the nam-
ing of awards or giving citations to political candidates
during or immediately prior to a campaign for public office.
They also proscribe the holding of public functions in honor
of such candidates; the use of the organization's mailing list
in behalf of a political candidate, or loan of such lists; and
the use of the organization's letterhead, facilities, or fund-
JEWISH POLICY: As in the past, major Jewish
organizations will continue this year their policy of abs-
taining from taking a position on candidates running for
the White House. This will apply to the candidacy of Jesse
Jackson who has a record of espousing positions and mak-
ing statements on issues of vital interest to the Jewish
community that many observers consider insensitive and
troubling, particularly his reported statements on the Mid-
dle East and on black-Jewish relations in the United
Jackson did not hesitate to meet with a group of Jewish
leaders soon after announcing his candidacy last month as
a Democratic Party Presidential hopeful. There was noth-
ing new about his pro-Arab stand. Contrary to Jackson's
allegations regarding black-Jewish relations, the Jewish
vote has played a pivotal role in the recent election of the
black mayor in Chicago, in the mayoralty primary in
Philadelphia and in the gubernatorial race in California.
In Chicago, Harold Washington, running against a
Jewish candidate, received 35 percent of the Jewish vote.
This was higher than the vote by any other white ethnic
group and twice as high as the overall white vote for Wash-
ington, which was 18 percent. In Philadelphia's Democratic
primary for mayor, Wilson Goode received only 23 percent
of the white vote, but was supported by 50 percent of Jewish
voters. In California, Tom Bradley received 42 percent of
the overall white vote but was supported by 75 percent of
JEWISH FEAR: There seems to be no danger that
Jackson could be elected President or even nominated by
the Democratic National Convention to run for President.
There are stronger candidates in the party. What the lead-
ers of major American Jewish organizations fear is that
Jackson's propaganda during the election campaign is
likely to develop tension in the black population, if he
injects his views that disturb Jews during his campaign.
Jewish organizations will seek to minimize possible
black-Jewish confrontations over Jackson's candidacy. The
Jewish Defense League is the only Jewish group that indi-
cated it will attempt to disrupt Jackson's speaking
engagements. A group calling itself "Jews Against
Jackson," under the aegis of the JDL, has announced its
intention to form chapters in every community. However,
the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) has advised its constituent groups to be
alert to local efforts of the JDL.
The NJCRAC is concerned about efforts by anyone to
dispute public appearances of any political candidate. It
believes such tactics undermine the democratic process. It
also believes that the public posture taken by the JDL will
be counter-productive and damaging to Jewish interests.
The American Jewish Committee, one of NJCRAC's
constituents, anticipating that tensions are likely to de-
velop in the 1984 election campaign, is now preparing a
six-point program, "Election '84," aimed at avoiding prej-
udice, preventing intergroup conflict, and analyzing the
impact of the political action committees which finance
candidates in their election campaigns.
Both Tunis and Morocco are
traditionally American al-
lies and are known for their
moderate attitudes in the
Middle East conflict. Ac-
cording to reporters accom-
panying him, Shultz
seemed taken aback by the
strong local opposition.
Meanwhile, in Sodom,
two visiting U.S. Con-
gressmen brought unset-
tling news from Cairo
where they found Egyp-
tian President Hosni
Mubarak angered by Is-
raeli government policies
and clearly dismayed by
the closer military and
economic alliance be-
tween the United States
and Israel. They appar-
ently failed to convince
him that Egypt had noth-
ing to fear from the new
