There are indications that
some of Israel's most vocal
supporters on the Hill are
preparing amendments to the
State Department bill that
would bar renewal of the
Bahrain lease. At the top of
the list is Rep. Larry Smith,
(D-Fla.), who has made the

Rep. Hamilton:
Proposals to shorten.
issue of Stingers a personal
crusade.
The leading pro-Israel
group, the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) has not yet decided
whether to oppose the
renewal of the Bahrain lease.
Pro-Israel forces are also
looking over their shoulders
at proposals by Rep. Lee
Hamilton, (D-Ind.), that.
would shorten the period for
Congressional review of ad-
ministration arms-sale pro-
posals — proposals that are
viewed as an attempt to short-
circuit the usual bitter battles
between pro-Israel forces and
the administration.

ADL Fights
To Restore
Fairness Doctrine

While attention focused on
the dramatic events surroun
ding Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's visit to Washington,
it was business as usual for
some Jewish activists.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith is
working to restore the
"Fairness Doctrine," the
regulation requiring broad-
cast licensees to cover con-
troversial issues and to pro-
vide some semblance of
balance in presenting dif-
ferent views.
The Fairness Doctrine was
repealed by the Federal Com-
munications Commission in
1987. That year, President

Reagan vetoed legislation
restoring the regulation; cur-
rently, efforts are underway to
pass similar legislation.
"What the Fairness Doc-
trine does is provide an oppor-
tunity to respond to distorted
and misleading information
that may appear on television
or radio," said Jess Hordes,
Washington representative
for ADL. "It enables a person
to respond to personal at-
tacks. We have used this
where there have been anti-
Semitic slurs and allegations
hurled at people; it's just one
weapon in the arsenal against
bias that we use?'
In its statement supporting
current legislation sponsored
by Rep. John Dingell (D-
Mich.), ADL pointed out that
with all its flaws, the Fairness
Doctrine has pushed broad-
casters in the direction of
fulfilling their obligations as
public trustees and has given
individuals and groups the
means to respond to slurs on
• their honesty, character, in-
tegrity or personal
characteristics.
The fairness measure is be-
ing opposed by a coalition of
broadcasters and publishers.

Tougher UBIT
Rules Could
Tax Yeshivas

Jewish activists here are
still participants in a tug of
war over legislation designed
to tighten up the rules on
Unrelated Business Income
Taxes (UBIT).
The issue involves efforts to
correct abuses by some non-
profit organizations.
Legislators were targeting
abuses that included college
bookstores that sell record
albums and schools that
operate profitable motels on
campus. But the inadvertent
targets of the legislation now
percolating in the House
Ways and Means Committee
could include synagogue gift
shops, yeshivas with active
fund-raising programs and
Jewish organizations that
sponsor group tours of Israel.
Representatives of a
number of voluntary groups,
including Jewish federations,
thought they had worked out
a UBIT compromise with Rep.
J.J. Pickle, (D-Thx.), chairman
of the subcommittee on over-
sight.
But recently, Pickle and the
powerful Ways and Means
chairman, Rep. Dan
Rostenkowski, (D-Ill.), turned
down the compromise.

We have promised the aged — our mothers, our fathers,
even ourselves — that the Jewish tradition of caring for our
elders will be maintained.
