Roseene had high praise for
the American Jewish leader-
ship. "These are extremely
devoted people. To be involv-
ed in Jewish life is certainly
not a recipe for rest and an
easy life. I think that one of

community in this country is

Abrams' Job May Be
Shaky After Testimony

Washington (JTA) The
position of Elliott Abrams,
Assistant Secretary of State
for Inter-American Affairs
and one of the most out-
spoken Jewish neo-conserv-
ative in the Reagan Ad-
ministration, appeared
tenuous last week after his
two days of testimony before
the Senate-House Iran-
Contra Committee.
However, Abrams, who ad-
mitted he had mislead Con-
gress last year about the Ad-
ministration's aid to the Con-
tras, indicated at the conclu-
sion of his testimony that he
plans to remain in his job.
Secretary of State George
Shultz "seems to be pretty
satisfied with the job I've
done for him," he told the
committee. This assessment
was seconded later by State

Rosenne's greatest sense of
achievement these past four
years as Israeli envoy to the
U.S. involves his role in help-
ing to convince the U.S. to
undertake an emergency air-
lift of Ethiopian Jewish ref-
ugees stranded in the Sudan
to Israel following the col-
lapse of the Israeli rescue

He recalled his effort to get
Vice President George Bush
personally involved. "These
were Ethiopian Jews, not
American citizens. I know of
no other precedent in modern
history when a country did
what the U.S. did in this case
— with the airlift. The debt of
gratitude we owe to the U.S.
was immense."

Meir Rosenne
always remember the Secre-
tary of State of the U.S. par-
ticipating in the Passover
seder at the U.S. Embassy in
Moscow. It was an historic
event. His very presence there
was louder and stronger than
a thousand speeches. There
was a message to Soviet
Jews, and a message to Soviet
authorities as well."
In general, Rosenne said,
"Israel is more popular today
than it was 20 years ago. No
doubt about it."

Department spokesman
Charles Redman, who said
Shultz "thinks Secretary
Abrams is dong a sensational
job, and he has full and total
confidence in him."
But several members of the
committee, including some
who praised Abrams, indi-
cated that the Administra-
tion might have difficulty in
getting approval for con-
tinued funds for the Contras
if Abrams was still at the
State Department when the
Administration makes its re-
quest in September.
The 39-year-old Abrams is
the son-in-law of Norman
Podhoretz, editor of Commen-
tary, the monthly published
by the American Jewish
Committee, which is con-
sidered the intellectual voice
