New York — An analysis of
Jewish voting behavior in the
1986 congressional and guber-
natorial elections, according to
a report by the American
Jewish Committee, once again
reveals a strong orientation
toward liberal politics and the
Democratic party. At the same
time, substantial numbers of
Jews appear willing to vote for
moderate and even conserva-
tive Republicans if they are
perceived as supportive of
basic Jewish concerns.
Jewish women tend to be
more liberal then Jewish men;
unprosperous Jews more
Democratic than prosperous
Jews; and Orthodox Jews more
conservative than Reform
Jews, the report noted.
What is exceptional about
Jewish voting behavior in the
United States, Dr. David
Singer observed, is the "firm
commitment to liberal politics"
despite the relative affluence
of American Jews.
As a corollary of their politi-
cal liberalism, Dr. Singer
pointed out, American Jews
tend to identify- strongly with
the Democratic party, voting
Democratic by an average of 25
percent more than the general
electorate in every president-
ial election since 1924. In the
1984 Reagan-Mondale race,
between 67 and 70 percent of
Jews cast their vote for Demo-
crat Walter Mondale. Jewish
loyalty to the Democratic party
is even greater in congres-
sional elections, Dr. Singer
added.

Terrorist
Bomb On Bus
Wounds Nine

Jerusalem (JTA) — A bomb
planted on a bus traveling
from Haifa to Jerusalem rip-
ped through the vehicle last
Sunday, leaving nine persons
wounded, one of them ser-
iously. It was the worst at-
tack on an Israeli bus since
six persons were wounded
last February . when a bomb
exploded on a commuter bus
in the 1b1 Aviv suburb of Bnei
Brak.
The explosive charge was
probably placed on the bus
before it left the Haifa central
bus depot for its two-hour
trip to Jerusalem. The driver,
who was himself hurt in the
explosion, insisted, however,
that he had checked the bus
before beginning the trip.
Eyewitness reports said the
charge seemed to have been
placed under the driver's seat.
He himself was thrown from
his seat by the blast but he
managed to guide the vehicle
to a standstill without
crashing into the highway
dividers. There were 52
passengers on the bus.
