Jewish groups like the Na-
tional Council of Jewish
Women remain firmly com-
mitted to the catastrophic
program. Other groups that
backed the original bill are
taking a wait-and-see ap-
proach.

And several Jewish groups
report that the flap over
catastrophic health in-
surance has dampened con-
gressional enthusiasm for
another high-priority piece
of legislation, long-term
health care assistance.

Legislator Says Sheik
s Israel's Problem

It was introduced in the
frenzied atmosphere sur-
rounding Israel's arrest of
Sheik Abdul Karim Obeid
and the murder of U.S.
Marine Lt. Col. William

Sheik Obeid:
Tempers have cooled.

Higgins. But now that
tempers have cooled and
new issues have moved to
the fore, the bills promoting
Obeid's extradition to this

country appear to be DOA —
Dead on Arrival.
An informal poll of con-
gressional staffers involved
in Middle East affairs
revealed that nobody was
quite sure what had happen-
ed to the bills by Rep. Gary
Ackerman, D-N.Y. and Sen.
Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.
Since the issue surfaced in
August, the administration
has quietly let it be knoWn
that Obeid's extradition is
just about the last thing it
desires.
And Congress has ap-
parently lost its enthusiasm
for involving itself in the
details of the Middle East
mess.
"In the heat of the mo-
ment, extradition seemed
like a good idea," said an
aide to a top Jewish
legislator. "After more sober
consideration, it is evident
that extradition would cause
all kinds of legal and inter-
national problems, with the
prospect of very limited
payoffs in our own battle
against terrorism. What if a
jury acquitted him? What if
the courts let him go on a
technicality? Better to let
Israel deal with the prob-
lem."

Reform Group Opposes
Tobacco Exports

The Washington-based
Religious Action Center of
Reform of Thailand because
of that country's ban on
tobacco advertising on tele-
vision.
U.S. Trade Representative
Carla Hills, the official
charged with overseeing the
system of preferential trade
arrangements with various
countries, has been petition-
ed by the Tobacco Exporters
Association to apply sanc-
tions against Thailand
because of the ban.
The RAC's David Sapers-
tein was not amused. In a
letter to Hills, Saperstein

urged the USTR not to en-
dorse a double standard for
tobacco advertising.
"We think it is morally
hypocritical for us to say we
won't allow certain types of
advertising in this country
as a means of protecting our
citizens," Saperstein said,
"but then turn around and
say that we will hold other
countries to a different stan-
dard."
Saperstein also pointed out
that the prohibition against
broadcast cigarette advertis-
ing in this country has
significantly reduced con-
sumption. ❑
