AIDS Issue

Continued from Page 20

mind after leaving the
session
I had been moved by the
poignancy of the personal
tragedies involved in confron-
ting AIDS, particularly with
David Glassberg's quiet
strength in discussing his
case before a room of
strangers. But the next day,
reading an article in the San
Francisco Jewish paper about
plans for a gay wedding be-
tween two Jewish men who
have lived together for seven
years, I was disturbed at the
attempt to validate a union
not recognized by traditional
Judaism.
Can one separate one's feel-
ings about homosexuality
and AIDS?
According to Andy Rose,
"AIDS is not a gay disease,
but people's response to it has
everything to do with how
they feel about homo-
sexuality. And homophobic
attitudes definitely get in the
way."
Those of us in mainstream
society must try to focus on
those aspects of the AIDS
crisis that can be agreed
upon, namely that it is a
cruel, fatal disease that must
be fought through intensive
medical research and preven-

tion through education. And
Jews must be reminded that
it is, indeed, a mitzvah to
treat with compassion and
dignity those who are suffer-
ing from AIDS. Disapproval of
the gay lifestyle does not
eliminate one's obligation to
care for an AIDS sufferer.
Surely, we as Jews should
be the last to blame the vic-
tim for the punishment.

Sharon Says Elections
Would Lead To Violence

New York (JTA) — Ariel
Sharon took his opposition to
the Israeli peace initiative to
the United States this week,
telling American Jewish au-
diences that the plan's call for
Palestinian elections could
lead to a Palestinian state
and "more terror and
violence: .
Reaction to the minister of
industry and trade, who is
heading a rebellion within
Likud ranks to scuttle the
peace plan, was mixed.
On Thursday, a partisan au-
dience at a Jerusalem
Reclamation Project dinner
gave Sharon a standing ova-
tion when he said the elec-
tions plan would serve only to
divide Jerusalem and
radical
Palestinians.
The
organization,
American supporters of the
Ateret Cohanim organization
in Israel, is dedicated to buy-
ing up Arab properties in
East Jerusalem and settling
Jews there.
On Friday, Sharon received
a cooler reception from the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish

Organizations. Seymour
Reich, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents, remind-
ed Sharon that the umbrella
organization had "en-
thusiastically" welcomed and
endorsed the peace initiative,
In a question and answer ses-
sion, some members express-
ed distress that Sharon now
came seeking their disap-
proval of the plan.
"Forgive me, but the thrust
of your argument is to erode
and undermine the positions
of the present government,"
said Phil Baum, associate ex-
ecutive director of the
American Jewish Congress.
The American Jewish com-
munity "longed for some in-
itiative" that would reverse
Israel's negative public rela-
tions image, continued Baum.
"It would be deplorable if this
accord were to be lost."
The Israeli peace initiative,
first proposed by Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
approved by the Cabinet and
Knesset, calls for Palesti-
nians to elect representatives
to negotiate with Israel
toward an interim period of
self-rule.
