Media Trounced
For Ignoring
Quayle's Speech

ferences with Palestinians.
• Israel is judged by and
judges itself by Western
democratic standards. There,
the status quo on the West
Bank is unacceptable.
"Skimpy news coverage,"
fumed Rosenthal, focused on
Quayle calling the West Bank
status quo unacceptable. But,
he asked, "Is there anyone in
his right mind who thinks the
status quo is acceptable?"
Quayle, wrote Rosenthal,
wanted "to call attention to
the dangers of a drift toward
the creation of a Palestinian
state?' The new Administra-
tion's strategy in the Middle
East is still forming, noted
Rosenmthal, but "if the deci-
sion one day is to go against
the interests of the
Anmerican-Israeli alliance,
Mr. Quayle will be unable to
hold the fort."

A.M. Rosenthal of the New
York Times defending. J. Dan-
forth Quayle? Stranger
things have happened in the
annals of journalism, but
usually not as soon after a
public figure has been damn-
ed and vilified as Qualyle was
last fall while running for the
vice presidency. But now that
he is in that hallowed office it
is "silly," wrote Rosenthal in
a recent Times' op-ed column,
"not to pay attention to what
the man next in line for the
presidency has to say now
that he has the job?'
Rosenthal was particularly
galled that the news media ig-
nored a speech that Quayle
delivered to the Anti-
Defamation League, "one of
the more important and sen-
sible speeches on the Middle
East heard in public for a
long time."
Among Quayle's points:
• Although the United
States has recently inititated
talks with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, it
should be careful about Yasir
Arafat's real intentions. The
PLO has yet to renounce its
charter that calls for Israel's
destruction and Arafat has
threatened the lives of
Palestinian leaders who want
to peacefully accomodate
Israel.
• The United States will
not pressure Israel into accep-
ting a solution to its dif-

Jakobovits:
Opts to ban inflammatory writings.

writers in America and
England have been flocking
to the defense of Rushdie and
of the freedom of expression,
the Chief Rabbi of the United
Hebrew Congregations of the
British Commonwealth has
called for a law in Britain to
ban the sort of writing that
has precipitated Iran's death
threat against Rushdie.
In a letter to The Times of
London, Rabbi Immanuel
Jakobovits called for legisla-
tion that would prohibit "the
publication of anything like-
ly to inflame, through
obscene defamation, the feel-
ings or beliefs of any section
of society."
