fter a long period of
of disinterest, Con-
gress discovered the
dialogue between this coun-
try and the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization.
In the past week, three
groups of legislators have
started actions designed to
give shape to the emerging
discussions in Tunis — a pro-
cess that some privately sug-
gest has been lacking from
the administration. The most
sweeping is a bill offered by
two Senate newcomers, Sen.
Joseph Lieberman, (D-Conn.),
and Sen. Connie Mack, (R-
Fla.). The Lieberman-Mack
proposal would require the
administration to report
periodically to Congress on
the progress of the talks.
"What it does is take the
commitments made by Ge-
orge Shultz and codify them,"
said a spokesman for
Lieberman.
Although the Lieberman-
Mack measure was introduc
ed as a independent bill, it is
expected that it will end up as
an amendment — possibly to

Activist Rosenberg
Steps Down
To Move Up

One of Washington's best-
known Jewish activists is
moving across Capitol Hill.
M. J. Rosenberg, currently
special assistant to Sen. Carl
Levin, (D-Mich.), will become
administrative assistant to
Rep. Edward Feighan, (D-
Ohio). In the curious pecking
order of Congress, the job
represents a significant pro-
motion even though
Rosenberg will be moving to
the lower house.
Rosenberg has held a
number of positions in the
Jewish world, as well as
Capitol Hill. He served as
editor of the Near East Report
and worked for the American
Jewish Committee, and he
has become a popular speaker
on the UJA circuit.
Feighan, according to some
Washington observers, is an
up-and-coming congressman
from the Cleveland suburbs
who has worked well with
Jewish and pro-Israel groups.
Feighan is best known as
author of the "Brady Amend-
ment," the measure designed
to limit the sale of cheap
handguns.

And for good measure, Sen.
Jesse Helms, (R-N.C.), has
been circulating a letter that

tinue to work in the trenches
in the fight for civil rights.
Several groups currently
are involved in a small but
important battle over the
future of the Martin Luther
King Commission, the board
that oversees planning for
celebrating the late civil
rights leader's birthday.
The commission's mandate
is due to expire on April 20.
Legislation to extend the
commission's life is pending
in both houses, but the bill
has fallen through the cracks
in Congress because of other
business.
There is also concern about
a possible filibuster by Sen.
Jesse Helms, (R-N.C.). And
Senate Minority Leader
Robert Dole (R-Kans.), has
been inexplicably slow to
schedule the measure for ac-
tion on the Senate floor.
"This is not a large amount
of money we're talking

about," said Sammie
Moshenberg, Washington
representative for the Na-
tional Council of Jewish
Women, one of the groups pro-
moting the legislation. "The

birthday from being just
another day for big sales; it's
a shame that people in Con-

on it."
The Jewish effort to restore
renew the King commission
has been spearheaded by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.

Panel Clears
Israel of Labor
Discrimination

After weeks of rumors, a
government panel released
its report last week absolving
Israel of unfair labor practices
for Palestinian workers.
But the abrupt timing of
the announcement and an ap-
parent lack of interest by the
press gave the Arab organiza-
tions that filed the initial
petition with the U.S. Trade
Representative a kind of
backhanded victory.
The panel found no
evidence of discriminatory
labor practices in Israel pro-
per and declined to in-
vestigate labor practices in
the West Bank and Gaza
because of their status as ter-
ritories under dispute.
But despite active efforts by
groups like the Jewish Labor
Committee, the American
Jewish Committee and the
American-Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, the final
