blacks' political interests. Blacks are
a minority — their candidates can
only win statewide or nationally in
coalition with whites. At first glance,
Jackson',p candidacy has made a fu-
ture black President or Vice
President a more credible possibility.
But this simple black particularism
— evidenced by his perceived anti-
Semitism — has made his presence
on a ticket the kiss of death. He has
been tempted into silence on Far-
rakhan; this silence has condemned
him to a political ghetto. It would
take a dramatic shift on the Jewish
question to make a Jackson opening
to white America credible.
In this election —as in other
political realms — attitudes and ac-
tions towards Jews again are a lit-
mus test of the health of the system.
Jackson's failure to repudiate Far-

rakhan grows out of his tendency to
put his appeal to blacks ahead of ev-
erything. Jackson's coalition has not
emerged because he has come across
as essentially concerned with the
black agenda only.

Jews should not withdraw from
blacks in a pique. As political insur-
ance, Jews should develop their al-
liances with others — with Hispanics
in New York and nationwide, with
conservatives as well as liberals, and
with Jackson rivals for black leader-

As part of the development of an
effective Jewish political culture, the
Jewish goal should be: neither to get
mad nor to get even — but to get
ahead through strategic alliances.

New York (JTA). —
Nathan Perlmutter, direc-
tor of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, said
last week the Rev. Jesse
Jackson's rhetoric has been
"indistinguishable from
that of anti-Semites."
He added, however, that
given the demographic na-
ture of American big cities,
"political leadership in our
urban areas will simply not
be available to demagogues
who stir narrow constituen-
cies." Perlmutter said that
the urban political future of
blacks and Jews will be bet-
ter served by the
"realpolitik of civility than
by separatist ideology."
In his annual report be-
fore a session of the ADL
National Commission meet-
ing, Perlmutter said that

Jackson's record of anti-
Jewish statements over the
years "cumulatively pro-
vide context for hie 'Hymie'
"Let us say it plainly. We
are dealing with a person
whose recorded expressions
are those of an anti-Semite.
How else do you view a man
who, when annoyed by the
press, attributes it to
'Jewish' domination of the

press? And when critical of
labor, blames it on 'Jewish'
control of labor unions?
When displeased by a box-
ing match between a white
South African and a black,
American, condemns
'Jewish' promoters? He has
attributed President Ni-
xon's venality to his
'Jewish' advisers,
'Ehrlichman and Halde-
man' . . . there are these and
more, so many more state-
ments." Noting a recent poll
which showed that the
younger, more educated and
wealthier blacks are, the
more favorably disposed
they are to Mr. Jackson, he
said that while the figures
do not reflect the degree of
the respondent's awareness
of Jackson's anti-Semitic
litanies, the fact that these
groups "esteem a person
with such prejudice is sober-
Perlmutter called atten-
tion to the fact that "in
Chicago, twice a many Jews
in percentage terms voted
for Mayor Washington as
did other whites, despite the
fact that his opponent was
Jewish; twice the percent-
age of Jews than other
whites cast their ballot for
Mayor Goode in Philadel-
phia and 75 percent of
California's Jewish voters
voted for Mayor Bradley in
his gubernatorial cam-
Jackson's reference to
Jews as "Hymies" and to
New York city as
"Hymietown" was deplored
by 58 percent of blacks in
the United States, pollster
Loll Harris revealed over
the weekend. The remarks
were condemned by 76 per-
cent of Jews indicating that'
there is substantial agree-
ment between blacks and
Jews that Jackson was
"dead wrong" when he made

his Hymie remark," Harris
told the ADL meeting.
The pollster: said his sur-
veys reveal a "remarkable
agreement" between blacks
and Jews on many political
and social issues. He noted
that according to one poll,
43 percent of blacks agreed
with the proposition that
Jews are "more sympathetic
than most other non-black
Americans with the aspira-
tions of blacks to achieve
equality." Only 23 percent
On Saturday, former Vice
President Walter Mondale
and Sen. Gary Hart rejected
Jackson's contention that

relations with the Arab
The three Democratic
Presidential contenders re-
peated their positiohs on the
Middle East in response to
questions from NBC's Tom
Brokaw in the last nation-

much attention had been
paid to the Middle East in
the campaign while' other
areas such as Asia and Af-
rica had been ignored, reit-
