FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1988

onvinced that anti-
Semitism was at work
at the Democratic
convention in Atlanta, New
Republic editor-in-chief Mar-
tin Peretz writes in the pages
of his magazine that he and
other lifelong Democrats
wonder whether the party "is
a place they can call home!'
Despite the "resurgent
anti-Semitism among
blacks," and despite the
Democratic platform's
"solicitude for the officially
accredited minorities" —
blacks, Hispanics, Native
Americans — the platform
contains "not a word about
anti-Semitism," notes Peretz
in the August 29 issue ("A
Dissident Democrat's La-
ment".)
"Apparently," says Peretz,
"Jewish sensibility . . . can
be shrugged off. But only at
peril."
Anti-Semitism at the con-
vention emanated, writes
Peretz, from Jesse Jackson,
whose presidential campaign
was "the personal campaign
of a personal redeemer in
whom millions vested their
half-articulated aspirations.
But there are no
redeemers . . . in modern life,
certainly none whose
strengths and achievements
proceed from the
microphone."
Peretz claims that "the
ideological profile of people
close to Jackson — people
who became close precisely
because of the Israeli issue —
is not exactly consoling.
Would anyone want to wager
serious money about
Jackson's true views on the
matter?"
Among the Jackson asso-
ciates whom Peretz finds
suspect are two of the black
leader's designates to the
Democratic National Corn-
mittee — Texas' Ruth Ann
Skaff, "known primarily as a
vocal supporter of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization," and Los
Angeles City Councilor
Robert Farrell, "who uses the
Israeli-Nazi analogy." Peretz
is also wary of Jackson's
"foreign policy point man" on
the platform commit-
tee — "anti-Zionist hysteric"
James Zogby.
Peretz laments that no ma-
jor newspaper or newsweekly
explored the fact that
Jackson's key foreign policy
people are best known for
their support of the PLO,

though the platform debate
over the Palestinian issue was
"the most furious of the con-
vention."
"The latent content [of the
amendment] was about Jews,
not about Palestinians,"
writes Peretz.
"People truly interested in
building a Democratic coali-
tion," writes Peretz, "would
never have permitted this
issue, central to the
psychological security of one
of the party's constituen-
cies . . . , to reach the floor.
But some of those who in-
sisted on it do not want a
Democratic coalition that in-
cluded masses of Jews!'

Jesse Jackson:
Personal redeemer

"Wittingly or unwittingly,
Jesse Jackson has encourag-
ed them. Unless Michael ,Y
Dukakis . . . makes it clear
that neither anti-Semitism
not even anti-Zionism will
find refuge in the Democratic
Party, unless Jesse Jackson
frees himself from the biases
to which he is still
vulnerable —if not this time
then next. But the abandon-
ment will not only be by the
Jews. It will be evident that
the party had deserted its
own ideals and its own
faithful."

"Shock Treatment"
From Hussein

Writing in the Washington
Post, the former director of
Israel's military intelligence
knocks the widely accepted
view that King Hussein's
renunciation of the West
Bank was a savvy ploy to
make West Bank Palestinians
realize they never had it so
good than when Jordan was
responsible for them.
YY
The king's move, writes
Yehoshafat Harkabi, was
meant "to bolster Jordan and
its national identity" and
"not meant as preparation for
his triumphant return as
