Washington (JTA) — The
Senate has overwhelmingly
approved a bill requiring the
Justice Department to com-
pile data on domestic "hate
crimes" committed against
Americans.
The bill, long sought by
American Jewish groups,
was adopted despite its in-
clusion of anti-gay violence
among the crimes to be
monitored. Some Senate
conservatives had opposed
the measure, believing it
gave undue protection to
homosexuals.
"There's a right every
American ought to have, and
that's the right to be free
and unmolested from vicious
hate criminal activity," Sen.
Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a co-
sponsor of the bill, said dur-
ing debate on the measure.
The so-called Hate Crimes
Statistics Act was approved
by a vote of 92-4. Last June,
the House of Represent-
atives approved the measure
by a vote of 368-47. A House-
Senate conference com-
mittee will now reconcile

differing language in the
two bills and then send a
final version to President
Bush for signature.
The bill directs the Justice
Department to track hate
crimes for the next five
years, "just as it now collects
data on auto thefts,
burglaries and other crime,"
said Sen. Paul Simon (D-
m the bill's other prin-
cipal sponsor.
Included are crimes
against individuals or prop-
erty because of race, re-
ligion, ethnicity or sexual
orientation. Anti-Semitism
is included under race and
religion.
The statistics bill adopted
by the Senate had originally
been scheduled for a vote
last summer. But it was held
up by Sen. Jesse Helms
(R-N.C.), who opposed its in-
clusion of crimes against
homosexuals.
Ultimately, Helms voted
against the overall bill,
along with Sens. William
Armstrong (R-Col.), Gordon
Humphrey (R-N.H.) and
Trent Lott (R-Miss.).

Boy Scouts Remove
Swastika-Like Symbol

New York (JTA) — An In-
dian symbol which
resembles a swastika will
not appear in future editions
of the Boy Scouts of America
catalogue, according to
Harold Sokolsky, assistant
to the Boy Scouts' chief ex-
ecutive.
The Boy Scouts had
received a letter from Jeffrey
Sinensky, director of the
Civil Rights Division of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, pointing out
that a photograph of the
"Indian Pictograph Stamp
Set" in the 1990 catalogue
included a swastika.

"We realize the Boy Scouts
in no way intended to
offend" anyone, read Sinen-
sky's letter. "But in light of
the painful associations the
swastika conveys to millions
of Americans" and the fact
that "it remains the favored
emblem of many bigots to-
day, may we ask that you
consider removing this sym-
bol from future literature?"
Sokolsky replied that "in
the spirit of friendliness and
the sincere desire to avoid
perception of insensitivity,"
the swastika symbol would
not appear in future edi-
tions.

White House, Hill
Debate East Jerusalem

Washington (JTA) — Nine
members of Congress, in-
cluding U.S. Sen. Carl Levin
(D-Mich.), have asked Presi-
dent Bush to issue a
clarification that U.S. policy
on East Jerusalem has not
changed.
In an apparent swipe at
Bush's March 3 statement
equating Jewish settlement
of East Jerusalem to the

West Bank, they wrote in a
letter to Bush, "In our view,
the status of Jerusalem need
not be settled early in the
current peace process."
The letter, initiated by
Sen. Rudy Boschwitz (R-
Minn.), said "Jerusalem
should never again be divid-
ed." In addition, within East
Jerusalem, "People should
be free to live wherever they
