O

ne Israeli reporter asked
the inevitable question
as he watched Sen. Gary
Hart (D-Colo.) in intense conver-
sation with a young Israeli
soldier in Jerusalem. "I know
that he is for us. And that he has
a 100 percent voting record. But
does he really feel it or is it just
politics?"
It is an important question —
especially as the 1988 President-
ial hopefuls express the view that
Israel is strategically important
to America. That is, 'of course,
true. But strategic considerations
can change. If a candidate or a
President views Israel only as a
strategic asset, then what will he
do if, at some point in the future,
Iraq or Saudi Arabia appears to
him to be even more valuable
strategically?
That is why it is essential to
gauge whether a candidate's ap-
proach to Israel goes beyond the
merely strategic to a real and
heart-felt appreciation of Israel's
moral value to America. Israel
doesn't merit U.S. support solely
as some sort of Mediterranean
aircraft carrier. Beyond that is
Israel's democracy and its role as
refuge and homeland for the
Jewish people.
A few of the 1988 candidates
seem to implicitly understand
that. Governor Mario Cuomo,
Congressman Jack Kemp, and
Senator Joe Biden are all well-
known for their emotional — as
well as their real-politik —
appreciation of the Jewish state.
They not only know why Israel is
important, they feel it.
The question the Israeli asked
was whether Gary Hart does.
After five days in Israel with
him, I believe that I can answer
that question. At first it seemed
as if he would only get to see
"strategic" Israel. He visited Is-
rael Aircraft to check out the new
Lavi fighter plane. He drove in a
new Merkava tank. He met with
the state's political and military
leaders. He found his view of Is-

East Report."

rael as a vital U.S. ally
strengthened. But did he see the
real Israel?
I put that question to Hart in
Jerusalem. He pointed out that
Israel is a democracy and thus its
political leaders are representa-
tive of the people. As for the mili-
tary, Israel has a citizen's army,
not some standing military estab-
lishment. But, he stressed, he
was powerfully impressed by Is-
rael's military and believed that
there was a great deal it could
teach the Pentagon.
On his last day in Israel, Hart
paid visits to President Chaim
Herzog, to Mayor Teddy Kollek,
and to the Hebrew Union College
where (thanks to the generosity
of a young Los Angeles couple,
Albert and Marilyn Gersten) a
Gary and Lee Hart Pavillion was
being dedicated. It was Hart's
next-to-last stop in Israel. And
after five days, he was sorting out
his impressions. He told me that
he didn't think "you can fully ap-
preciate the people and the coun-
try until you go and see Israel for
yourself. It is an amazing place in
so many ways. But nothing is
more amazing than its people."
Expressing the same sentiments
to an audience at the dedication
ceremony, Hart said that "as we
leave Israel, a piece of Gary and
Lee Hart will remain behind. We
will be back." "God bless Israel,
God bless America." Choked with
emotion, he couldn't continue.
Later, at lunch with Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, Hart
spoke about Israel as a country
"that never fails to amaze" — a
country where generals talk
about Kant and Tolstoy and
where the Prime Minister
engaged him in a discussion
about William Faulkner. Peres
expressed his appreciation for
Hart's visit. "We feel for people
who feel for Israel," he said.
Peres includes Hart on that
list. And it appears that he's
right. One thing is certain. Hart
now knows that Israel is a place
not an issue, people and not poli-
tics. That understanding can only
benefit the Jewish state if Gary
Hart gets the chance to set the
Middle East policy of the United
States. The people of Israel have
made an important friend.
