M.E. Policy Statement
Ruffles Few Feathers

New York (JTA) — Leaders
of Jewish organizations have
generally welcomed a draft
policy statement on the
Middle East released Oct. 11
by the National Conference
of Catholic Bishops.
But several of them have
expressed concern over the
statement's call for the es-
tablishment of a
"Palestinian homeland with
its sovereign status recog-
nized by Israel."
At the same time, they
have applauded language in
the statement reflecting
concern for Israel's security,
its affirmation of U.S.
government support for
Israel and its demand that
"that the Arab states enter
into full diplomatic relations
with Israel."
"It is a fair and balanced
statement," said Henry
Siegman, executive director
of the American Jewish
Congress.
The voluminous 40-page
draft is titled "Toward Peace
in the Middle East: Prob-
lems and Principles." It will
be voted on by bishops from
across the country when
they convene in Baltimore
on Nov. 6.
The document will be the
first statement on the Mid-
dle East conflict issued by
the American Catholic
hierarchy since a two-page
document on the subject was
drawn up in 1978.
In Washington, the State
Department criticized that
portion of the statement on a
Palestinian state as not

"We know we won't
recover our children," she
says of the Mothers. "But we
must continue to present our
tragedy. We have to leave a
legacy for the younger
generation — to fight for
justice and defend human
rights. We cannot allow this
tragedy to be repeated in our
country, or in any other."

helpful. Spokeswoman
Margaret Tutwiler said,
"We don't favor any
unilateral steps or declara-
tions."
Several Jewish organiza
tions also criticized the call
for a homeland.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith said
the policy statement con-
tains "many positive and
constructive elements." But
it called the recommenda-
tion on territorial sovereign-
ty "fundamentally flawed"
and said it could "obscure
the positive."
To many observers, the
language of the Catholic
statement seems painstak-
ing in its efforts to be even-
handed.
It states that the Palesti-
nians should be "willing to
discuss secure boundaries
and stable political relations
with Israel" and that Israel
must be willing to "discuss
territory and sovereignty
with Palestinians."
However, particularly
when discussing the
Palestinian uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
its sympathies clearly do not
lie with the Israeli govern-
ment.
"The central theme which
needs to be lifted up and re-
peated is that the intifada is
a cry for justice; it is a cry for
personal and political identi-
ty," the document reads.
Spokesmen for the
American Jewish Com-
Mittee called that descrip-
tion unbalanced, saying that
