Bush lauds Peres

Washington (JTA) — Vice
President George Bush last week
told Jewish supporters of
President Reagan that newly
sworn-in Premier Shimon Peres'
call on King Hussein of Jordan for
peace talks without preconditions
is "a good sign."
"I hope that progress can be
made," Bush said to more than
200 Jews attending a luncheon
sponsored by the Greater Wash-
ington Jewish Coalition for
"Finding a path to real peace for
Israel and its neighbors has long
been a central objective of Ameri-
can policy," the Vice President
stressed. He said that Reagan's
Sept. 1, 1982 peace initiative
"must go forward" to achieve "the
day when the Israeli people can
live within secure and recognized
boundaries, at peace with their
neighbors, and when all the
peoples of the region can live to-
gether free from terror."
As he did in a speech to the Na-
tional Jewish Coalition during
the Republican National Conven-
tion in Dallas last month, Bush
noted that former Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir, now Israel's
Foreign Minister, said in a Time
magazine interview, "Relations
with the United States are better
than ever before."
However, Bush conceded that
the United States and Israel do
have differences, such as the ef-
fort to move the United States
Embassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem. "We are worried about
that for a lot of reasons," he said.
But he stressed that these are
"honest differences" between
"friends and allies."
Bush predicted that the Repub-
lican ticket is "going to do better
than the 40 percent of the Jewish
vote we got last time." A similar
prediction was made both by
Richard Fox of Philadelphia,
chairman of the National Jewish
Coalition, and Josep Gildenhorn,
chairman of the Greater Wash-
ington Group.
Fox noted that Jewish Demo-
crats from the conservative wing
of the party headed by the late
Sen. Henry Jackson of Washing-
ton state feel the Democratic
Party "has moved away from
them and are joining us in large
In his speech, Bush reiterated
that the Administration "stands
against the obscene anti-
Semitism that has infected
United Nations debates," stressed
that "I cannot imagine any realis-
tic circumstances under which
this President would entertain
the notion of the United States
voting for UN resolutions con-
demning Israel," and that "If Is-
rael is ever voted out of the UN,
the United States will walk out
with it."
Bush said he was repeating the
last statement "over and over so
that every country up there gets
the message."
The Vice President said a "fun-
damental hallmark" of United
States foreign policy is that the
United States will never "recog-
nize or negotiate" with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization as
long as the PLO "refuses to recog-
nize Israel's right to exist and to

George Bush

accept Security Council Resolu-
tions 242 and 338."
Bush stressed the close
strategic relationship that has
developed between the United
States and Israel and noted in
particular the effort now going on
to create a United States-Israel
free trade area. "We believe this
will be a major step toward help-
ing our friend in that part of the
world and in the same context,
helping ourselves," he said.

All in the family

Afula — For the past year, syn-
agogue congregats in this Jezreel
Valley community have been
praying with one less Torah.
The reason, they say with pride,
is that the missing scroll is being
used by Jews in West Hartford,
Conn., a gift from the Afula resi-
dents after nine Torahs were de-
stroyed in a series of arson attacks
in Hartford area synagogues.
"Every Jew winces when a
Torah is destroyed maliciously,"
said Afula's mayor, Ovadia Eli,
who presented the Torah to the
West Hartford Jewish commu-
nity. "But when it happened to
our friends, it was especially pain-
ful. For us the Jews of West
Hardford are family."
Afula Illit and Givat Hamoreh
are neighborhoods in Afula which
have established "family" ties to a
cluster of Connecticut Jewish
communities, including West
Hartford, through Project Re-
newal, a comprehensive partner-
ship in which Diaspora Jewish
communities help Israelis in dis-
tressed neighborhoods to improve
the standard of living.
"We have benefitted a lot from
the relationship," said Eli. "Now
the two neighborhoods have
health facilities, community cen-
ters, libraries and employment
programs. But it goes much de-
eper than that. The American
Jews want to be involved in our
town. They want to understand
our problems. They want to be our
"And we feel the same say," he '
quickly added. "The relationship
is a two-way street. When we
heard about the arson and saw
photographs of the burned syna-
gogues, the people came to me and
said something must be done.
"We know the people of West ,
Hartford could have bought their
own Torah," he said. "But this was
a way for us to show we care about
them too."
