Jewish Democrats Seem
Pleased With Quayle Selection


Wsahington Correspondent


hile the rest of the
nation is arguing
over Sen. Dan
Quayle's military service
record and Vice President
George Bush's judgment in
picking the Indiana conser-
vative as his running mate,
Jewish politicos are scrambl-
ing to figure out how the
nomination will play in the
Jewish community.
Jewish Democrats were
pleased with the selection.
"Bush could have picked up
some Jewish votes by picking
a leader in congressional sup-
port for Israel," said one
member of the Dukakis team.
"From our point of view, Jack
Kemp would have posed the
most trouble for us. But Sen.
Quayle's record on support for
Israel is mixed, at best!'
"lb the Jewish community,
he's a big zero," said
Democratic consultant Mark
Siegel. "He reinforces all the
cultural and political reasons
Jews have been hostile to the
Republican Party for 50
On the Republican side,
Jewish activists were
attempting to put on their
best face, stressing Quayle's
leadership in winning impor-
tant anti-tactical ballistic
missile contracts for Israel.
But several acknowledged
that Quayle's foreign-aid
record and his close ties to the
religious right would pose
some problems as the cam-
paign moves into high gear.

March Should
Be Peaceful

Thanks to the promised ap-
pearance of presidential can-
didate Michael Dukakis, the
25th anniversary of the civil
rights march on Washington
will probably take place
without much pro-Palestinian
Several months ago repre-
sentatives of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tion, the American Jewish
Congress and the American
Jewish Committee were con-
cerned about reports that a
spokesman for the Palestin-
ian cause would be featured
at the Aug. 27 gathering on
the Mall in Washington.
Although groups support-
ing the Palestinian cause lob-
bied hard to put Mubarak
Awad on the program, input
from the Dukakis camp ap-
parently tipped the scales
against the expelled Palestin-




Republicans Dan Qualye and George Bush: less trouble for Democrats
than a Kemp candidacy,

ian dissident, who will be in
town to address the Southern
Christian Leadership
"The only possible point of
friction we're aware of now is
the speech planned by Jesse
Jackson," said one Jewish ac-
tivist who has been helping
hammer out the details of the
march. "And we think that
his appearance could repre-
sent a step towards healing
some of the wounds opened by
the Democratic primaries."
The march will begin at
10:30 a.m. at the Sylvan
Theater, just south of the
Washington Monument, and
move across the mall to the
Lincoln Memorial, site of the
Rev. Martin Luther King's
historic "I have a dream"

Group Urges
Cooperation In
Arms Sales

In the wake of this sum-
mer's fight over Saudi
Arabia's massive arms deal
with Great Britain — a deal
which some administration
officials have blamed on the
loud opposition of the pro-
Israel community to arms
sales to Arab countries — one
group is working to change
the way the United States
uses weapons sales as an in-
strument of foreign policy.
Shoshana Bryen, director of
the Jewish Institute for Na-
tional Security Affairs (JIN-
SA), said the United States
and its allies should coor-
dinate the sale of advanced
weapons in ways that con-
tribute to peace and stability
in the Middle East.
Bryen points to the recent-
ly signed agreement to limit
the export of sensitive missile
technology as a model for
coordination among the West-

em nations. "I think we could
do the same thing with other
kinds of weapons sales," she
said. "Now, if we turn down
an arms sale, they'll just go
someplace else."
Bryen said the end of the
Iran-Iraq war offers a good op-
portunity to begin this pro-
cess. "The war raised many
new security concerns for
Arab governments. With the
war over, now might be a good
time to reassess arms policies,
on the basis of the fact that
those threats are now great-
ly diminished."
Bryen agreed that coordina-
tion will not be easy, but said
coordination may ultimately
serve Israel's interests. Cur-
rently, the United States at-
tempts to limit the spread of
offensive technology to na-
tions hostile to Israel, but
other exporting nations, like
Great Britain, put almost no
controls on the types of
weapons sold.
"Working for this kind of
arrangement is far better
than taking the high moral
ground, knowing the stuff
will get sold by somebody
else," she said.

PACs Analyzed

A group of retired foreign
service officers with a
distinctly pro-Palestinian bias
is flooding Capitol Hill with
copies of their analysis of pro-
Israel Political Action Com-
mittees (PACs).
And to back up their cam-
paign, American Educational
Trust (AET), a non-profit
foundation which includes

retary of state, is offering
readers bumper stickers ac-
cusing Congress of being a
