On His Own?

Continued from Page 20

from Baker, and possibly
from others; there is no
doubt that many in the ad-
ministration were pleased
that he said what he said."
Dole's staff vigorously de-
nied that the senator was ac-
ting on behalf of the ad-
ministration. They point out
that the only official brief-
ings involved the group's
venture into Iraq. In off-the-
record conversations,
several sources close to the
Republican leader pointed to
his often strained relations
with the Bush administra-
tion as proof that he was not
acting on their behalf.
"Look, Robert Dole is not
going to lie down on the
railroad tracks for the presi-
dent," said Ben Waldman,
director of the National Jew-
ish Coalition, a nationwide
organization for Jewish
Republicans. "It doesn't
make sense that he was
working for the president."
But other observers point
to the fact that Dole was ser-
ving as an administration
emissary in his two-hour
meeting with Iraqi Presi-
dent Saddam Hussein. The
unusual meeting, which
took place in the northern
Iraqi city of Mosul, was
related to administration
efforts to develop better ties
to the Baghdad government
— another issue that deeply
disturbs pro-Israel activists.
And Dole did receive en-
couragement for his proposal
to cut Israel's foreign aid
allotment from top ad-
ministration officials, in-
cluding Secretary of State
James Baker.
Other observers argue that
Dole's motives were mainly
personal.
"He's finally becoming
more out front about posi-
tions he's had all along,"
said Morris Amitay, chair-
man of the Washington PAC
and a longtime observer of
the Jewish political scene.
"Everything's personal with
Dole; he holds grudges, he
remembers every slight. He
felt let down because of what
he saw as poor Jewish sup-
port for his presidential
campaign. What I think
you're seeing is someone
who is angry and
frustrated."
Still others suggest that
Dole, with his presidential
ambitions behind him and a
safe seat in Kansas, is simp-
ly giving vent to feelings
about Israel and the pro-
Israel lobby that he has been
forced to conceal over the
years.
The most worrisome ques-
tion is what Dole will do
next.
Even before the controver-

sial trip, there was a wide-
spread expectation on
Capitol Hill that Dole was
preparing some kind of new
move on the Middle East —
something to follow up on
his call early this year for a
cut in U.S. aid to a number
of major recipients, in-
cluding Israel and Egypt.
Speculation centered on
the $400 million in housing
loan guarantees now work-
ing its way through Con-
gress. Recently, the Senate
passed the authorization for
the loan guarantees, which
are needed to help provide
housing for the thousands of
Soviet Jews now streaming
into Israel.
But the appropriations
part of that legislation is up
for consideration on the

"We're not going to
let Dole be the
enemy."

Hoenlein

Senate floor this week; there
is concern that Dole could
move to attach strings to
those guarantees. This
week's revelations that the
Israeli Housing Ministry
helped fund the controver-
sial occupation of a church-
owned complex in the Old
City of Jerusalem could
make the $400 million more
vulnerable to attack.
Jewish activists appear to
be pursuing a two-pronged
strategy. Organizations like
the American-Israel Public
Affairs Committee (ALPAC),
the Anti-Defamation League
and the American Jewish
Committee are mobilizing
their grass roots to generate
a strong showing of calls and
letters to Dole, urging him to
take a more moderate posi-
tion on the Jerusalem ques-
tion.
At the same time, these
same groups are trying to
keep the debate from
escalating.
"We're not going to let
Dole be the enemy," said
Malcolm Hoenlein, director
of the Conferences of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations. "We
don't understand what he's
doing; there is a pattern that
has emerged that has been
very hard to interpret. But it
is very clear that his views
have been rejected by his col-
leagues in the House and
Senate. And we have been
reassured by the ad-
ministration that they do
not share these views." Sup-
port for Israel remains
strong in Congress,
Hoenlein said. ❑
