Say "Cheese"
and Put a Smile on
Your Kids' Faces

leutive vice president,
Rothenberg reports, calls for
funds to combat "threats to
the very foundation of our
democracy" by enabling the
AJC to present the Jewish
- ide of the debate on TV and
radio. The AJC appeal, he
omplains, labels TV evangel-
i st and potential presidential
Jandidate Pat Robertson "an
exemplar of a larger and, from
our perspective, dangerous
The Rothenberg article
i- serts that nowhere does the
AJC refer to any anti-Semit-

Writing in the Wall
Street Journal, an
American Jew is
7ritical of the
American Jewish
campaign against

ism associated with the
Robertson campaign and that
it concedes that Robertson
"is a strong supporter of
Israel." The letter, he says, ex-
oresses concern over Robert-
son positions on prayer and
the teaching of "creationism"
in the schools and over his
`strong promotion of the doc-
trine of original intent of the
onstitution" which he said,
according to the letter,
"reflects an interpretation of
the Constitution which is
harply at odds with that of
ost Jews."
Rothenberg takes off from
here with a blast at the AJC.
Its objective in seeking
money for this campaign, he
asserts, "is not the protection
f the security of Israel or the
rights of American Jewry
gainst religious persecution
but the preservation of a
ocial agenda of contempor-
ary political liberalism: affir-
mative action quotas, forced
school busing, abortion on de-
and, and unfettered policy-
• aking power by political ac-
tivists on the bench."
The AJC, he says, offers no
reason why the American
Jewish community as a bloc
should resist any criticism of
these dogmas, particularly af-
firmative action quotas, (to
hich the AJC is strongly op-
posed) which, he alleges, have
een even more detrimental
to American Jewry than to
the rest of the middle class.
If the AJC effort is proper
at all, Rothenberg asserts, "it
ould seem more appropri-
ately aimed at venomous
anti-Semitism on the left" as
evidenced by the Jackson-
Farrakhan foray into
presidential politics.
But why should it be per-
,missible for Christian fun-
damentalist to propagate
)t heir views actively and im-


proper for the Jews to defend
those widely held by Jews?
Rothenberg does not explain
except to warn that a Jewish
advertising blitz would be
"bound to incense the sub-
jects of the attack."
Rothenberg's ideological
identification with the
philosophy which animates
the National Jewish Coalition
propaganda — that Ameri-
can Jews should take their
political marching orders
from Israel — is evidenced in
his assertion that "it is in-
deed ironic that the AJC,
ostensibly speaking for this
country's Jewish community,
in effect is declaring war on a
movement that has been as-
siduously courted by Israeli
prime ministers."
If it were otherwise, if
American Jews were to take
their marching orders from
Israeli prime ministers, as
Rothenberg would seem to
prefer, then there would be
merit to the frequent anti-
Semitic charges that the
American Jew has dual loyal-
ties with the primacy in
Jerusalem. But the over-
whelming majority of
American Jews who support
Israel, resent Israeli in-
terference in our domestic af-
fairs, just as Israelis object to
American Jewish interven-
tion in theirs.
