porters of Israel.
Meanwhile, Democratic conven-
tion planners anticipate with confi-
dence a continuity in platform plan-
ning that will assure near unanim-
ous endorsement of the traditional
party support for Israel.
Democratic leaders showed no
concern over any possible obstruction
to the supporting influences in behalf
of Israel.
The basic emphasis given on the
continuity of this policy is its backing
by the assured nominee for the
Presidency, Walter Mondale, and
especially his commitment to seek
the transfer of the U.S.. Embassy
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Israel affinity attitude that
predominates in Democratic ranks is
shared by the strong Michigan dele-
gation.
Playing important roles in the
Michigan delegation will be Senator
Carl Levin, who will, soon after the

primaries in August, be injected into
a serious campaign for re-election,
and Congressman Sander Levin,
Carl's brother, who has practically no
opposition, and who is a target of ex-
treme rightists.
The Michigan 'black delegation
being strongly pro-Mondale, there is
little support from it to the Jesse
Jackson antagonism to Jews, the
latest subjects of his attacks on Mon-
dale, whom he charged with being
influenced by "Jewish pressures."
In this regard, it is anticipated
that the Michigan delegates will play
an important role, under Mayor
Coleman Young's leadership, to st-

rive for "healing the rift between
Jews and Jackson."
Jackson's latest verbal diatribe
denouncing the American Jewish
community's leadership may lead to
strains in the traditional relation-
ship between the Democratic Party
and the American Jewish commu-
nity when th party!s national con-
vention begins next week.
Hyman Bookbinder, the Wash-
ington representative of the Ameri-
can Jewigh Committee, said in a
telephone interview Wednesday that
he fears Jackson's • suggestion that
the Jewish community has.sought to
make him a "pariah" maybe the be-
ginning of scapegoating the Jewish
community for his failure to be
selected as the party's vice president-
ial candidate.
Bookbinder indicated that he
feels that former Vice President Wal-
ter Mondale, the party's likely
Presidential candidate, and other
Democratic Party leaders cannot
"remain silent" in view of Jackson's
claims that he has not been seriously
considered for the slot because of
"threats to Mondale'by a significant
number of Jewish leaders." Jackson
said this was "very. evident."
Bookbinder will be at the con-
vention in San Francisco to provide
information on the Jewish commu-
nity to reporters.
Jackson's latest remarks were
contained in an interview with the
