cherishes their freedom. The
reasons that it should be
shown are the same ones you
use to defend exhibiting Last
Temptation. But, when I use
your reasoning to call for the
showing of Triumph, you call
me anti-Semitic. Well, you are
clearly anti-Christian. But,
that's ok, isn't it?
It is time that you start feel-
ing the pain we Christians
are experiencing and stop
calling us anti-Semitic every
time some misled "Christian"
says something stupid .. .

Serving the Community for 32 Years

Party Of Nixon
Or Of Jackson?
At the recent Republican
convention Max Fisher made
the statement that the
Democratic platform did not
speak out against anti-
Semitism. Pray tell where
does the Republican platform
do that?
At an Economics Club din-
ner some months ago, Mr.
Fisher introduced Richard
Nixon, referring to him as
"my good friend." I think we
can all recall the Nixon tapes
in which the Jews are refer-
red to as kikes. Do my fellow
Jews find that more palatable
than calling New York
hymietown? I am no defender
of Jesse Jackson but where do
you draw the line? .. .
lb my fellow Jews who have
become so jaded in their af-
fluence, vote with your minds
and your hearts, not your
pocketbook .. .
I am an American first. I
think of Israel as my mother
and my country as my child.
I would never vote for a can-
didate just because that per-
son is "good for Israel." That
phrase has been kicked to
death by false prophets.
The only two presidents
who really did anything for
Israel were Truman and
Carter. It is my belief that all
presidents will be good for
Israel as long as it is good for
the United States.

Liberal, Leftist
Articles Criticized
Once again, The Jewish
News and its writers
demonstrate the blatant
political double-standard
against Republicans and con-
servatives inherent to almost
every issue of the publication.
Take the Aug. 26 issue.
For starters, James D.
Besser, who purports to give
us an "Inside Washington"
view, seems obsessed with

describing Jewish Republican
Nevada Senator Chic Hecht
as an "ultra-conservative."
This issue marks at least the
fifth occasion this year that
Besser has given Hecht this
much inflated and exag-
gerated label, implying that
Hecht is somehow an
extremist.
Strangely enough, Besser
mentions the very liberal
Jewish Democratic Ohio
Senator Howard Metzen-
baum in the same paragraph
without any such ideological
epithets.
Just the week before, in the
Aug. 19 issue, in a desperate
and transparent attempt to
stem the tide of those Jews
who will vote against the par-
ty of Jesse Jackson, Palesti-
nian "self-determination,"
and anti-Semitism in
November, Besser tried to
discredit the GOP platform.
According to the Besser
gospel, the Republican Party
platform, which AIPAC called
"the most pro-Israel platform
of any U.S. political party in
history," is merely a mean-
ingless effort to cover up the
influence of New Hampshire
Governor John Sununu, who,
as Besser well knows, has re-
mained a minor and relative-
ly uninfluential figure in the
Bush campaign since the
New Hampshire primary .. .
Next, in your "editorial" on
Page six, entitled "Shooting
Quayle," your aim is low, your
shots are cheap, and you,
therefore, miss the target.
Your verbiage is incorrect —
you are poaching Quayle, or
miserably attempting to. You
criticize George Bush for pick-
ing a running mate from a
wealthy background like his
own. Isn't it odd that I read no
such complaint when
Millionaire Mike, who never
mentions that his immigrant
parents are millionaires and
set up a million-dollar trust
fund for him, chose a running
mate, Texas Senator Lloyd
Bentsen, whose wealth is
greater than that of Bush and
Quayle combined .. .
It is okay, as elicited by The
Jewish News' piece of literary
apologism on David Bonior, to
be one of the PLO's best
friends in Congress if you
keep "lines of communication
open" with Jewish organiza-
tions. The Nazis and the
Soviets kept "lines of com-
munication open" with the
Jews — remember the
Judenrat and the Yevsektsia,
so perhaps they merit
glorious revisionist articles in
The Jewish News as well .. .

George Bush for President
