Tough Issues

Continued from preceding page

dangerous for Israel if we're
critical in the non-Jewish
world the way we can be in
gatherings of just Jews."
Lichterman also drew the
distinction between those
who criticize Israel specifical-
ly as a nation and those who
limit this to the country's
political policies. And Jews
who are outspoken about
relinquishing the territories,
or who do not necessarily
follow the mainstream views
on Israel, should not be con-
demned as "anti-Israel," he
said.
American Jews are not on-
ly allowed, they are obligated
to express their views on
Israel, according to Richard
Radner.
Yet Israel does not have to
listen, he said. And in fact,
Radner said, "I would like to
see Israel beholden to no one."
An increasing tendency to
downplay those issues which
separate world Jewry, and to
proffer instead a vocal and
unified chorus of support for
the State of Israel, was evi-
dent as the conference pro-
gressed. Speakers, such as
Alfonse D'Amato (D-N.Y.),
who praised Israel to the hilt
and lambasted critics of the
country, were wildly
applauded.
In his remarks, D'Amato
called U.S. aid to Israel "the
greatest mitzvah that we
could do for the United States
of America and we better
understand that and stop
apologizing for that."
He labeled as ridiculous the
possibility of a U.S. call for an
international conference on
the Middle East, comparing it
to a move to organize one on
Nicaragua.
D'Amato also said he was
"taken aback by the simplici-
ty" of Levin's letter.
Ending his speech with
"Am Yisrael Chair D'Amato
stepped off the podium to a
standing ovation.
Received with equal en-
thusiasm was Sen. Robert
Packwood (R-Ore.), whose
opening statement that he
did not sign the Levin letter
was followed by thunderous
applause.
According to Packwood,
Israel has the only legitimate
claim to sovereignty over both
Gaza and the West Bank. Of
course, he added, the areas
were once a part of the Roman
Empire, "but I've not heard
any calls lately to give the
West Bank back to Italy."
Packwood belittled the
"land for peace" concept, say-
ing "I don't think Israel has
to prove that they are willing
to trade land for peace .. .
Israel has given up land for
peace."
The question, he said, is not

whether Israel will relinquish
territory, but "are the Arabs
ready to promise and deliver
peace for land?"
On Tuesday morning, the
last day of the conference, the
participants poured into
busses, lined back to back on
the street outside the Wash-
ington Hilton, that took them
to Capitol Hill.
There, they passed through
metal detectors and crowded
into the offices of represen-
tatives and senators from
their respective states.
The talks were not always
positive. One Detroiter com-
mented on a meeting with
one congressman who, in the
past, had been an outspoken
supporter of Israel. But with
the wave of violence in the
territories, the congressman
conceded, he could no longer
promise to stand 100 percent
behind Israel.

D'Amato labeled as

possibility of a U.S.
call for an
international
conference on the
Middle East

Those meeting with Jim
Spading, administrative
assistant to Rep. Guy Vander-
Jagt (R-Cadillac), found a
more receptive audience. The
group discussed such issues
as prayer in public school and
American support for Israel,
the latter which evoked
Sparling's comment "But
even within your own (Jew-
ish) community there's deep
division about Israel."
Lisa Sommers, who par-
ticipated in the meeting with
Sparling, made an impassion-
ed plea for VanderJagt's con-
tinued support on behalf of
Soviet Jewry. The con-
gressman's wife has been in-
volved in the issue and
VanderJagt himself had
adopted former refusenik Yuli
Edelstein. Sommers said
after the meeting that she
found it extremely beneficial.
As the conference drew to a
close, participants began ex-
hibiting the inevitable signs
of exhaustion. The line out-
side a small cafeteria in the
hotel stood a good 30 deep,
with haggard men and wo-
men begging "Coffee! Coffee!"
Yet discussions about the
events continued to the very
end. Most comments about
break-off sessions, in which-
participants could sit in on a
variety of lectures ranging
from "The Role of the
American Jewish Woman —
Synagogue, Politics and
