Bush has gone out of his
way to court some of the most
far-out elements of the Chris-
tian right, without whom he
would not win the election.
Fundamentalist evangelicals
like Jerry Falwell and Pat
Robertson, who recently of-
fered to condemn anti-
Semitism only if the Jewish
community condemned the
movie The Last Temptation of
Christ are only two of these.
Dukakis, son of poor Greek
immigrants, refused to par-
ticipate in his college frater-
nity system because it exclud-
ed Jews. When he heard that
professional barbers in his
college town would not cut
the hair of black students, he
took it upon himself to cut his
black classmates' hair until
the professionals relented.
Perhaps Hyman
Bookbinder, fomer director of
the American Jewish Com-
mittee, put it best.
Dukakis, he said, has "not
only an intellectual and
philosophical understanding
of Jewish history and Jewish
pain, but a personal sensitivi-
ty formed by his own ethnic
background, by the close rela-
tionships with Jews
throughout his life, and by
family participation in
Jewish living by virtue of his
marriage . . . Nobody has ever
come to the White House
with a greater commitment
and sensitivity to [our] cen
tral concerns."
When we vote on Nov. 8,
let's not forget who we are
where we came from and
what we believe in. And with
that remembrance, let us vote
for Michael Dukakis for presi-
dent of the United States.

Israel
forces
in
the
Democratic Party.
In the words of Thomas
Dine, executive director of the
American-Israel Political Ac-
tion Committee, Dukakis is
"a true friend of Israel."
We have heard both parties
accused of harboring anti-
Semites. We are right to be
anxious. We have seen this
before, in other places, in
other times.
But we Jews should con-
sider which candidate has a
commitment in his heart to
fight anti-Semitism — a com-
mitment not dependent on
the pressures of presidential
politics.
Is it Bush, who opposed the
1964 Civil Rights Act, and
who selected as vice president
someone with close ties to the
religious right, whose family
helped found the John Birch
Society, and who once said, "I
have very little interest [in
civil rights]. My own personal
concerns are very minimal in
that area?"
Is it Bush, who, after revela-
tions that Frederic Malek,
deputy chair of the
Republican National Com-
mittee, had compiled a list of
Jewish employees in the Nix-
on administration, called
Malek "a most honorable
man" and reaffirmed his will-
ingness to consider giving
Malek a job in a future Bush
administration?
And it is Bush, who served
as president of the fraternity
system at Andover and later
became an active member of
Yale's Skull & Bones, at a
time when both were
notorious for their exclusion
of Jews and blacks?
