report was ignored by the
press.
Jewish activists here have
been confident of their
technical defense of Israel's
labor policies, but nervous
about the apparent success of
Arab-American groups in
reaping a public relations
windfall from their
complaint.
"From the ..beginning, this
was more of a public relations
battle than a serious labor
question," said one leading
pro-Israel activist here. "The
frustrating thing is that the
report confirms everything
we've been saying. But the
public is left with the impres-
sion, created by the earlier
stories, that there's bias in
Israel's labor practices. So it's
a victory, but it loses some of
its luster if nobody knows
about it."

Child Care
Bill Suffers
Major Setback

The Act for Better Child
Care (ABC), the landmark
bill being promoted by a long
list of Jewish groups, has
been plagued with problems
centering on the use of federal
funds in church and
synagogue-sponsored day
care facilities — a hefty pro-
portion of all day care
facilities in this country.
And now, a hard-won com-

coalition backing the bill by
objecting to a section pro-
hibiting the use of federal
money for sectarian purposes,
something Jewish activists
thought had been addressed
by the church-state
compromise.
And the Catholic group
wants to exempt child care
vouchers issued under the
program from prohibitions
against religious uses of the
money, a position that sup-
porters of the ABC measure
worry may entangle the bill
in yet another distracting
church-state battle.
Sen. Edward Kennedy, (D-
Mass.), and Sen. Chris Dodd,
(D-Conn.), the bill's key spon-
sors, are leaning on the
Catholic group in an attempt
to prevent further complica-
tions on the church-state
front. This latest controversy
comes at a time when the
ABC bill is under intense fire
from a coalition of Christian
Right groups.
"We expect that the Con-
ference may attempt to work
this out as an amendment to
the bill," said Judy Golub,
assistant Washington
representative for the
American Jewish Committee.
"If they do that, they will kill
the bill."
Other Jewish activists
worry that the Catholic group
views the controversial provi-
sions of the ABC bill as a
back door into tuition tax
credits — something that
most Jewish groups vigorous-
ly oppose.

Arab, Israel
Boosters Roast
George Mitchell

In Washington, even
political adversaries have oc-
casion to rub elbows — when
the occasion involves the
never-ending game of politics.
At a "roast" last week held
to honor Senate Majority
Leader George Mitchell, the
audience included some of
Israel's leading supporters
and some of the leading ad-
vocates of the opposing camp.
Attending the good-natured
event were Tom Dine, ex-
ecutive director of the
American-Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, (AIPAC),
and Morrie Amitay, • Dine's
predecessor at the top pro-
Israel group.
A few tables away were Ab-
deen Jabara, president of the
American-Arab Anti-
Discrimination Committee,
and James Abourezk.
