reductions and revenue
enhancement measures.
Instead of the across-the-
board cuts in all programs,
Congress and the President
should carefully scrutinize
specific program expenditures
to determine appropriate
funding levels. At the same
time, additional revenues
would be required to lower the
deficit. Some measures, such
as a higher tax on gasoline,
would receive significant sup-
port from the Jewish commu-
nity. Others,.such as a higher
minimum tax on corporations
and increasing personal in-
come taxes for the wealthy,
while more controversial, may
nevertheless prove to be a pre-
ferred alternative to the
damaging rigidities of
Gamm-Rudman.
Indeed, tax increases are an
important mechanism to help
close the deficit. They are par-
ticularly appropriate in light
of the fact that a major factor

in our revenue gap — esti-
mated at $111 billion by the
Congressional Budget Office
— resulted from the 1981 fed-
eral tax cuts.

The related issues of deficit
reduction and revenue
enhancement must be placed
high on the Jewish commu-
nity's agenda. The Supreme
Court decision provides us
with an opportunity to urge
that Gramm-Rudman be dis-
carded. Instead of trying to re-
cast Gramm-Rudnian into a
constitutionally-acceptable
instrument, Congress and the
President would be far better
advised to devote their com-
bined energies to the more
sensible task of enhancing
revenues and carefully
scrutinizing specific program
expenditures to determine
appropriate funding levels.
A failure to make this a
Jewish community priority
may prove to be a costly error.

The Jewish News featured
a reprint of an article which
appeared in the Village Voice
'("Nice Jewish Boys With
Bombs"). As you probably
know, the Village Voice over
the years has featured many
anti-Israel articles. I have no
objections to the contents of
the article which you ran. I
do however feel that by
featuring a Village Voice ar-
ticle you are providing them

with a "hechsher" which they
do not deserve.
I hope in the future you
will not legitimate sources of
anti-Israel propaganda.

ZOA Launches
Embassy Drive

The Zionist Organization of
America-Detroit District has
launched a drive to support
the passage of an amendment
to the Diplomatic Security Act
(HR 4151). The amendment,
proposed by Sen. Jesse Helms
(R-N.C.), would prohibit any
funds to construct a new U.S.
Embassy, or improve any
facility of an existing U.S.
Embassy in Israel, unless the
building is located in
Jerusalem withing five miles
of the Knesset.
The amendment passed the
Senate by a voice vote and will
soon be taken up by the
House-Senate conference
committee.
According to Louis Panush,
co-chairman for public affairs
of the ZOA-Detroit District,
the National Conference of
Catholic Bishops wrote to
President Ronald Reagan,
asking him to veto the legisla-
tion.
The current U.S. embassy is
located in Tel Aviv. The U.S.
does not recognize Israel's sov-
ereignty over Jerusalem,
claiming that the city's status
must be decided by negotia-
tion.

Article On JDL
Attacked Kahane

Jewish Defense League

LETTERS

Robert I. Friedman's arti-
cle, "Nice Jewish Boys With
Bombs" (July 25) would more
appropriately be entitled
"Why I Hate Rabbi Meir
Kahane." While Friedman
displays a touch of admira-
tion for the Jewish under-
ground in his story of the rise
and fall and rise once again
of the JDL, his relentless
diatribe against Kahane re-
veals not only his personal
dislike for the rabbi and
Knesset member, but also, it
appears, a bit of jealousy for
his position.
The Jewish Defense League
was always served first and
foremost to foster Jewish
pride, promote- Torah educa-
tion, teach self-defense, extol
the benefits of aliyah and,
last but not least, fight the
rampant assimilation so pre-
valent in Judaism today.
For many, the JDL never
declined. It remained a viable
organization willing to pro-
tect and defend Jews at any
time and any place. For the
rest, they should be happy
and proud that it has once
again returned.
