Jewish organizations are fighting
U.S. Latin America objectives

and

BY DAVID FRIEDMAN

Washington — The Re-
agan Administration has
long sought support from
the American Jewish com-
munity for its policies in
Central America. President
Reagan in recent speeches
before Jewish and non-
Jewish groups has re-
peatedly asserted that the
Communist Sandinista re-
gime in Nicaragua has used
threats and harassments to
force vitually every Nicara-
guan Jew to flee his coun-
try."
The other side was
stressed recently by nine
rabbis and Jewish political
activists who visited Jewish
members of Congress to
urge opposition to the Ad-
ministration's Central
America policy as part of
Central America Week,
sponsored by the Religious
Task Force on Central
America.
Organized by the New
Jewish Agenda and the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the Jewish
group presented' Jewish
Senators and Representa-
tives with literature from
Jewish organizations op-
posed to the Administra-
tion's policies.
Rabbi Gerald Serotta, a
member of the national
steering committee of the
New Jewish Agenda, said
the delegation sought to
make clear that many Jews
"deplore the aggressive and
dangerous policies of this
Administration, as well as
their means of selling them.
Although there are impor-
tant issues of anti-Semitism
in Latin America which
must be addressed, the cyn-
ical attempt by the Reagan
Administration to attract

Jewish support by mis-
statements and exaggera-
tion must be condemned."
The literature distributed
by the Jewish group op-
posed U.S. intervention in
Central America, called for
rejecting aid requests not
firmly tied to reforms, urged
a commitment to address-
ing the root causes of the
problem in the area and
asked for a more humane
immigration policy."
The move in Congress,
launched by Sen. Daniel
Moynihan (D-N.Y.), to have
the United States Embassy
in Israel moved from Tel
Aviv to Jerusalem seems to
be gathering steam despite
the strong opposition of the
Administration.
The group of fundamen-
talist Christians which each
year sponsors the National
Prayer Breakfast in Honor
of Israel has urged "the im-
mediate relocation" of the
embassy to Jerusalem.
More than 550 Christian
leaders signed a "1984 Proc-
lamation of Blessing" in
support of Israel which
noted: "Indeed the Scrip-
tures establish Jerusalem
as the eternal and indivisi-
ble capital of Israel. There-
fore, may the Holy City
never be internationalized.
Further, it behooves
America, in light of its
enduring relationship of
`blessing' Israel, to establish
the United States Embassy
in Jerusalem."
In a letter to members of
Congress, Terry
Risenhoover, chairman of
the National Prayer Break-
fast, stressed that to use
Jerusalem as "a bargaining
chip is an affront both to
America's moral commit-

EDMUND J. ELKINS, D.D.S.

ment to democracy and a
signal to those surrounding
states still in a declared
state of war with Israel that
we somehow do not fully
recognize the legitimate
government of Israel."
Risenhoover stressed that
"millions of Bible-believing
Christians side with us in
making Jerusalem the rec-
ognized capital of Israel,
and as such, the only place
worthy for the U.S. Em-
bassy, notwithstanding the
voices of those who wish to
either weaken or destroy Is-
rael." •
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture reports that
American and Israeli ag-
ricultural researchers are
working together to see if
spiders can be used to help
farmers increase their out-
put and cut down their use
of chemical pesticides. This
is one of many projects of the
Binational Agricultural
Research and Development
Fund set up by the two
countries in 1977.
The Israeli and American
researchers began survey-
ing spiders in the U.S. and
found more than 130 species
in the Florida citrus groves.
They found that certain
spiders are effective in de-
stroying cotton-damaging
larvae and scale insects that
attack citrus fruit. By using
the spiders against these in-
sects, farmers could delay
spraying their fields with
chemical pesticides. By test-
ing how susceptible various
spiders are to pesticides, the
researchers hope to create
an environment where
spiders can multiply while
helping to fight against crop
losses.
