government.
The group has analyzed
some 51 pro-Israel PACs and
used federal election commis-
sion statistics to highlight the
big winners losers and points
pro-Israel PACs' preference
for incumbents and
legislators serving on the key
foreign affairs committees.
The big winner this year,
according to the statistics, is
Sen. Howard Metzenbaum (D-
Ohio), who received some
$142,000 in his battle for
reelection. The big loser was
Sen. Chic Hecht (R-Nev.), the
ultra-conservative Jewish
senator who has received far
less than Gov. Richard Bryen,
his opponent in a bitter elec-
tion battle.

Sen. Howard Metzenbaum:
Big winner.
Just in case their sympa-
thies aren't clear by their
publications, (AET) is dis-
tributing bumperstickers
that read: "Pray for Pales-
tine" and "Congress is an
Israeli-Occupied Territory."
AET's policy committee in-
cludes former Sen. J. William
Fulbright and Sen. Charles
Percy — names that win no
votes of confidence among
Israelis supporters in
Washington.

Jewish Groups
Take On NRA
Campaign

Several major Jewish
groups are facing some stiff
opposition this week on an
gun control. Despite the con-
gressional recess, the Na-
tional Rifle Association
(NRA) is in the middle of a
telephone blitz that is
overloading switchboards in
both Houses.
At issue is the so-called
"Brady Amendment" to the
Omnibus Drug Bill, a
measure named after former
presidential nevrs secretary

James Brady his wife, Sarah
Brady, a national leader in
the movement to control
"Saturday night specials."
The amendment would re-
quire a seven-day wait to pur-
chase a handgun. Supporters
of the amendment argue that
a waiting period is essential
to the enforcement of other
handgun regulations, in-
cluding the prohibition
against the sale of weapons to
illegal aliens, felons, and drug
addicts.
But the NRA, which op-
poses gun control of any sort,
does not agree. The result has
been a lobbying blitz of
monumental proportions.

Generally, organizations
representing police officers
have supported the measure,
along with the American
Jewish Congress, the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee and
the Anti- Defamation League
of the B'nai B'rith.

"We've been fighting just a
tremendous amount of misin-
formation on this bill," said
Judy Golub, assistant Wash-
ington representative for the
American Jewish Committee.
"A seven day waiting period
doesn't infringe on anybody's
rights; if Congress turns the
Brady Amendment down, it
will be very, very short-
sighted."
Golub points out that
American Jews, who live
predominantly in big cities,
are among those most direct-
ly threatened by the easy
availability of cheap hand-
guns.

Israel Listed
With State

Washington (JTA) — The
State Department's
telephone directory for the
first time is listing the U.S.
consulate in Jerusalem as a
diplomatic post inside Israel.

The U.S. Embassy in Tel
Aviv has traditionally been
included under "Israel" in
the directory, but Jerusalem
has been listed with no coun-
try at all.

Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-
N.Y.), who recently received
the landmark May 1988 ver-
sion of the directory, said that
the State Department had
previously denied Israel
"recognition of their capital
city, Jerusalem" as well as
"denied it is their city at all."
