BY DAVID FRIEDMAN

Washington (JTA) — The fol-
lowing is a comparison of the
Democratic and Republican plat-
l '-.)rms, adopted at their respective
national conventions:
_MIDDLE EAST
Democrats: The Democratic
Party believes that the security of
Israel and the pursuit of peace in
the Middle East are fundamental
priorities for American foreign
policy.
The Democratic Party con-
Oemns this Administration's fail-
ure to maintain a high-level spe-
cial negotiator for the Middle
East, and believes that the Camp
David peace process must be
`aken up again with urgency. We
believe that the United States
s h ould press for negotiations
among Israel, Jordan, Saudi
Arabia and other Arab states.
We re-emphasize the funda-
mental principle that the pre-
requisite for a lasting peace in the
Aiddle East remains an Israel
with secure and defensible bor-
ders, strong beyond a shadow of
doubt; that the basis for peace is
the unequivocal recognition of Is-
rael's right to exist by all other
states; and that there should be a
resolution of the Palestinian is-
sue.
_Republicans: With the Syrian
leadership increasingly subject to
Soviet influence, and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization and
its homicidal subsidiaries taking
up residence in Syria, U.S. policy
,
coward the region must remain
vigilant and strong.
The bedrock of that protection
remains as it has for over three
d e cades, our moral and strategic
relationship with Israel. We are
allies in the defense of freedom.
Jsrael's strength, coupled with
Unted
States assistance, is the
- i
-main obstacle to Soviet domina-
/. on of the region. The sover-
ejgnty, security, and integrity of
the State of Israel are moral im-
peratives. We pledge to help
maintain Israel's qualitative
ria-:litary edge over its adversaries.
We support the legislation
ending for an Israel-U.S. free
Itrade area.

JERUSALEM
Democrats: Jerusalem should
remain forever undivided with
- iiee access to the holy places for
people of all faiths. As stated by
the 1976 and 1980 platforms, the
Democratic Party recognizes and
supports the established status of
Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
As a symbol of this stand, the U.S.
Embassy should be moved from
Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Republicans: We believe that
(-Jerusalem should remain an un-
plivided city with free and unim-
peded access to all holy places by
people of all faiths.
PLO
- Democrats: The Democratic
Party opposes any consideration
Thf negotiations with the PLO, un-
less the PLO abandons terrorism,
ci'ecognizes the State of Israel and
adheres to UN Resolutions 242
and 338.
Republicans: Republicans reaf-
firm that the United States
Should not recognize or negotiate
with the PLO so long as that
-,organization continues to pro-
mote terrorism, rejects Israel's

right to exist, and refuses to ac-
cept UN Resolutions 242 and 338.
ARMS FOR ARABS
Democrats: The Democratic
Party opposes this Administra-
tion's sale of highly advanced
weaponry to avowed enemies of
Israel, such as AWACS aircraft
and Stinger missiles to Saudi
Arabia.
Republicans: (Not mentioned.)
SOVIET OE WRY
Democrats: The Democratic
Party condemns continued Soviet
persecution of dissidents and re-
fuseniks . . . We will not be silent
when Soviet actions, such as the
imprisonment of Anatoly
Shcharansky and Ida Nudel and
thousands of others, demonstrate
the fundamentally repressive and
anti-Semitic nature of the Soviet
regime.
A Democratic regime will give
priority to securing the freedom to
emigrate for these brave men and
women of conscience including
Jews and other minorities, and to
assuring their fair treatment
while waiting permission to
leave.
Jewish emigration, which
reached the level of 50,000 during
the last Democratic Administra-
tion and which has virtually
ended under its Republican suc-
cessor, must be renewed through
firm, effective diplomacy.
Republicans: We will press for
Soviet compliance with all inter-
national agreements, including
the 1975 Helsinki Final Act and
UN Declaration of Human
Rights. We will continue to pro-
test Soviet anti-Semitism and
human rights violations.

SEPARATION OF
CHURCH-STATE
Democrats: The current Ad-
ministration has consistently
sought to reverse in the courts or
overrule by constitutional
amendment a long line of Sup-
reme Court decisions that
preserve our historic commitment
to religious tolerance and
church-state separation. The
Democratic Party affirms its sup-
port of the principles of religious
liberty, religious tolerance and
church/state separation and of the
Supreme Court decisions forbid-
ding violation of these principles.
We pledge to resist all efforts to
weaken those decisions.
Republicans: We have enacted
legislation to guarantee equal ac-
cess to school facilities by student
religious groups. Mindful of our
religious diversity, we reaffirm
our commitment to the freedom of
religion and speech guaranteed
by the Constitution of the United
States and firmly support the
right of students to openly prac-
tice the same, including the right
to engage in voluntary prayer in
schools.
QUOTAS
Democrats: (Opposition to
quotas deleted in amendment on
floor of convention.)
Republicans: We will resist ef-
forts to replace equal rights with
discriminatory quota systems and
preferential treatment.
BIGOTRY
Democrats: The Democratic
Party strongly condemns the Ku
Klux Klan, the American Nazi

Party, and other hate groups. We
pledge vigorous federal prosecu-
tion of actions by the Klan and the
American Nazi Party that violate
federal law, including the enact-
ment of such lawg in the jurisdic-
tions where they do not exist. We
further condemn those acts, sym-
bols and rituals, including cross-
burnings, associated with anti-
civil rights activities.
Republicans: The Republican
Party reaffirms its support of the
pluralism and freedom that have
been part and parcel of this great
country. In so doing, repudiates
and completely disassociates it-
self from people, organizations, *
publications and entities which
promulgate the practice of any
form of bigotry, racism, anti-
Semitism or religious intolerance.
CONSTITUTIONAL
CONVENTION
Democrats: We oppose the arti-
ficial and rigid constitutional re-
straint of a balanced budget
amendment. Further we oppose
efforts to call a federal constitu-
tional convention for this purpose.
RepubliCans: We will work for
the constitutional amendment
requiring a balanced federal
budget. If Congress fails to act on
this issue, a constitutional con-
vention should be convened to ad-
dress only this issue in order to
bring deficit spending under con-
trol.
HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL
Democrats: (no mention.)
Republicans: The Republican
Party commends President Re-
agan for accepting the honorary
chairmanship of the campaign to
erect a U.S. Holocaust Memorial
in Washington D.C. and supports
the efforts of the U.S. Holocaust
Council in erecting such a
museum and educational center.

Factory shutdown
creates cigarette
shortage in Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli smok-
ers — many of them are said to be
among the heaviest smokers in
the world — will soon be search-
ing for a cigarette.
The Dubek factories, which
have a monopoly in the produc-
tion of domestic cigarettes, have
closed down following the refusal
of cigarette wholesalers to handle
locally-made cigarettes. They
claim their profit margin is too
small to warrant the business.
Some 800 Dubek workers were
sent on compulsory leave and
temporary workers were dis-
missed.
Many tobacconists and kiosks
were reported to have run out of
domesic cigarettes this weekend.
The price of imported brands rose
almost immediately, with a pack
of American cigarettes selling for
over $4.
The cigarette shortage has led
the Israel cancer and anti-
smoking societies to announce a
special anti-smoking campaign,
offering free advice on how to cut
down and overcome withdrawal
symptoms.
