solutist' position on church-
state separation are coming
up against people within the
same organizations con-
cerned about the delivery of
services, in an environment
where more and more ser-
vices are being provided by
sectarian institutions,"
Castelli said in an interview.
He pointed to the recent
battle over child care legisla-
tion — a battle confused by
sharp differences. between
Jewish organizations about
restrictions on the use of
federal money for day care
services provided by churches
and synagogues.
Castelli, a Catholic who
spent years as a journalist
covering the religious scene,
also has been a close follower
of the 1988 campaign, a bat-
tle with clear church-state
overtones.
"The Republican Party is
trying to have its cake and
eat it too," he said. "On the
one hand, they are trying to
appeal to the evangelicals by
working with the Religious
Right. At the same time, the
establishment doesn't want to
give them power within the
party. So in the past year,
we've seen conflicts in a dozen
states!'
Castelli charged that Vice
President George Bush is
"almost schizophrenic" about
the Christian Right — criti-
cizing the Christian Right
during the primaries, but still
trying to portray himself as
one of them. "And there has
been a clear reluctance to
criticize the excesses of the
Christian Right," he said.
"This is an essential part of
the Republican coalition this
year!"

Saudis Ask U.S.
For More
Weapons

Washington (JTA) — Saudi
Arabia may ask the United
States next year to sell it $5
billion to $8 billion worth of
weapons, including F/A-18
fighter planes. However, ac-
cording to reports last week,
a fight with staunchly pro-
Israel members of Congress
would almost certainly ensue,
possibly similar to the 1981
battle over the proposed sale
of AWACS surveillance planes
to the Saudis, which Congress
ultimately approved.
Lawmakers were outraged
last spring to learn that
Saudi Arabia bought Chinese
CSS-2 ground-to-ground mis-

siles capable of reaching
Israel, without informing the
Reagan administration.
Moreoever, about the same
time, members of Congress
were stunned by news that
Britain had concluded a deal
with the Saudis estimated in
the tens of billions of dollars.
With the agreement, Britain
supplanted the United States
as the largest weapons sup-
plier to the Middle East.
The most recent congres-
sional-administration battle
over arms to Saudi Arabia
came last year, when Con-
gress forced President Reagan
to eliminate 1,600 Maverick
air-to-ground missiles from a
$1 billion package to the
Saudis, which included 12
new F-15 fighter planes.
Rep. Lawrence Smith (D-
Fla.), who often leads congres-
sional fights to block Arab
arms sales, said he was sus-
picious of Saudi motives for
seeking the latest batch of
weapons.

his summer a group of out-
standing Jewish teenagers
in the U.S. and Canada, com-
ing from a variety of secular and synagogue backgrounds and entering
their senior year of high school, will spend a stirring month of study,
travel and dialogue in Israel.
They will be recipients of the Edgar M. Bronfman Youth
Fellowships,* a fully-endowed program based not on need but on
merit. The five-week program begins July 9. All meals will be kosher,
and Sabbath activities will be in the spirit of the day.
The Bronfman Fellows will be mature, talented and curious,
with proven qualities of leadership, intellect and character. Based in
Jerusalem, they will spend their time intensively exploring the land,
culture and customs of Israel.. . taking part in seminars with some of
the country's most prominent political and cultural figures...debating
ideas and seeking answers on the different ways of defining oneself as
a Jew today, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and earnest and
open dialogue.
They will be led by a team of educators and counselors of
rich Jewish background with a wide variety of Jewish perspectives.
And they will return home with

Dine Blasts
'Sixty Minutes'

Washington (JTA) —
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee (AIPAC) ex-
ecutive director Tom Dine
charged that CBS-TV's "60
Minutes" report on AIPAC
was intended to undermine
U.S.-Israeli relations.
At a dinner sponsored by
the Jewish National Fund of
Greater Washington last
week, Dine dismissed criti-
cism of AIPAC expressed by
George Ball, who has not
served in the government
since the Kennedy and
Johnson administrations.
Referring to Ball and two Il-
linois Republicans who ap-
peared on the recent show,
former Sen. Charles Percy
and former Rep. Paul Findlay,
Dine said they "not once
acknowledged" that Presi-
dent Reagan and members of
Congress argue that close
U.S.-Israeli relations "ad-
vance American interests
abroad!'
Dine said that his stand-in
for the CBS report, AIPAC
vice president Rabbi Israel
Miller, "hung in there well!'
AIPAC insiders said they pre-
ferred seeing Miller serve as
the "fall guy" on the show,
rather than Dine, because
they believed CBS reporter
Mike Wallace would treat the
rabbi gentler than he would
a politico like Dine.
