Mecham Is Defensive
About 'Christian Nation'

Phoenix (JTA) The former
governor of Arizona has
defended a state Republican
Party resolution defining the
United States as a "Christian
nation" and accused the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith of trying to
defeat him in his attempt to
regain that office.
"Why should the Christian
nation concept be frighten-
ing?"Evan Mecham former
governor, asked during a
telephone interview.
"Historically, this is a
Christian nation guarantee-
ing freedom to all. I'll fight
for everyone's right to worship
or not. But, in my opinion,
this is a Christian nation. I
didn't make it so, but this is
the case."
The cited resolution, passed
by the Arizona Republican
Party at its annual state con-
vention on Jan. 28, declared
the United States to be "a
Christian nation."
The convention was con-
trolled by Mecham sup-
porters, according to reports,
and the resolution was one of
several with a right-wing
slant.
Several weeks later, the
party's executive committee
voted to include new
language in the resolution
that said the Republican Par-
ty was open to all people, no
matter of what religion.
"My feeling is that it is

great to live in a Christian
country," Mecham said. "I
belong to a minority group
myself. Anti-Semitism is the
farthest thing from my mind.
I don't think we are arguing
doctrine here, but principles.
The Jewish people are very
sensitive and I am very sen-
sitive, too." Mecham is a
Mormon.
Mecham also criticized Bur-
ton Kruglick, the state GOP
chairman, who is Jewish, on
the resolution. "He was there
(at the convention), but didn't
make a fuss while it was hap-
pening," the former governor
said.
"I believe the ADL then
pressured Kruglick. They
want to keep things stirred
up. They apparently want to
intimidate people to prevent
them from speaking out."
Jerry Wisotsky, chairman
of ADL's Arizona regional
board of directors, also denied
Mecham's assertion, saying it
was"totally untrue."
Mecham was impeached by
the Republican-controlled
House on Feb. 5, 1988, and
charged with obstructing
justice, misusing state money
and concealing a campaign
loan.
The Republican-controlled
Senate convicted him on the
obstruction and money
charges. A jury subsequently
cleared him of the third
charge.

Developer Helps JNF
Build Lake In Desert

Timna, Israel (JTA) —
About 20 miles north of Eilat
and 10 miles east of nowhere
a man-made lake sits smack
in the middle of the Negev.
The place is Timna Valley
National Park, a natural
wonderland that has been
around since the fourth cen-
tury B.C.E. Iten compasses
17,500 acres of archaeological
and geological formations, in-
cluding rare rock formations,
exotic wild animals, sand-
stone arches and mountains
of breathtaking views.
Imagine driving through a
hot desert, with sand and
rock your only vista. Sudden-
ly you come upon a 4-acre
lake, with boats sailing at one
corner, kids splashing in a
kiddie pool at another, and
adults swimming at a third.
A mirage caused by too much
sun?
No, this the real thing, not
from God but from man. One
man. A spry, irrepressible
75-year-old, Avrum Chudnow

of Milwaukee, a land devel-
oper in Wisconsin and
Florida.
"When we first came out in
1983," he said, "and we — the
Jewish National Fund — de-
cided to help develop Timna,
the first request by the
regional council was, 'we need
a lake for recreational pur-
poses, for the kibbutzim
around here, because they
have nothing.' "
"It's a wonderful thing," Gi-
deon Patt, the minister of-
tourism, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, "because
many people who come to
Eilat just sit in Eilat and soak
in the water of the Red Sea.
Patt said his ministry has
invested $6 million toward an
initial fund of $30 million,
"mainly to introduce a new
phase of tourism in Israel —
desert tourism."
The latest attraction at the
park is the Timna Center, a
gazebo that houses a 140-seat
restaurant.
