Soon after the Senate
returns, it will face the sixth
cloture vote on S-2, a cam-
paign reform package de-
signed to limit somewhat the
power of political action com-
mittees in senate campaigns.
Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) is
currently leading a filibuster
against the measure, which
would introduce incentives
for voluntary spending limits
and reduce the amount of
money a candidate could take
from PACs. Several Jewish
groups, including the Union
of American Hebrew Congre-
gations, are actively suppor-
ting the measure. Enthu-
siasm for the bill is somewhat
less among the PACs devoted
to promoting Israel's interests
in Congress.
And, as Secretary of State
George Shultz and Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze get ready for
their upcoming meetings, it is
expected that Congress will
want to express itself on the
lingering issue of Soviet
Jewry, and on the question of
direct flights for Jews fleeing
that nation.

Hidden Star
Of David

In one of thesear's stranger
stories, a postage stamp
issued to commemorate the
100th anniversary of Yeshiva
University in New York was
allegedly altered by an
engraver at the Bureau of
Engraving and Printing.
And the alteration in ques-
tion, visible only with a
powerful magnifying glass, is
a tiny Star of David nestled in
the portrait of Bernard Revel,
Yeshiva's longtime president.
According to Postal Service
spokesmen, millions of the
stamps were printed before
the alteration was disclosed
by a weekly publication for
collectors. There are no plans
to recall the altered one-
dollar stamps, and it it not ex-
pected that they will become
sought-after items for collec-
tors, since so many are in dis-
The stamp was allegedly
engraved by Kenneth Kipper-
man of Silver Spring, Md., a
skilled engraver who has
been with the Bureau for ten
years. In another twist to the
story, Kipperman was ar-
rested in June after alleged-
ly barricading himself in a
partially-demolished building
at the site of the planned
United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum. Accor-
ding to police, Kipperman ap-
parently objected to the

demolition of that building. It
is also alleged that he
threatened to blow up the site
of the new museum.
If the stamp alteration
charges are true, there isn't
much the government can do
to Kipperman, since appar-
ently no laws were violated.
In fact, according to spokes-
man for the Bureau of En-
graving and Printing, it is not
uncommon for skilled en-
gravers to somehow "per-
sonalize" their work in ways
that do not interfere with the
overall design, although the
practice is discouraged.
Mr. Kipperman was not
available for comment.

Israel's Role
In Iran-Scam

Washington (JTA) — A
former consultant to the Na-
tional Security Council who
first explored the possibility
of making contact with Ira-
nian officials that eventually
led to the nationwide scandal,
said Aug. 14 that Iran in-
itiated the proposal to buy
arms from the United States.
Michael Ledeen, speaking
before the Heritage Founda-
tion, a conservative think-
tank, greatly down played
Israel's role in the Iran arms
sales. He said the Israel
government was deeply divid-
ed over the advisability of
selling arms, and simply serv-
ed as a conduit for the U.S.


In Gaza


Tel Aviv (JTA) — An IDF
soldier and a civilian injured
by shots fired at them near
Gaza on Sunday were
reported Tuesday in a stable
condition in the intensive
care unit of Soroka Hospital
in Beersheba.
Fire had been opened at
their car from two vehicles as
they travelled along the Gaza
bypass road near the Jebalya
camp. The soldier was hit by
six bullets in the chest and
waist, while his civilian com-
panion was wounded in the
thigh. Both men shot back
with their pistols, but the
assailants escaped and are
now being sought.
The PLO in Beirut reported
Monday that the attack had
been carried out by its Force
17 commando unit.
