Fact is, more Americans
may die by the fork than by
any other weapon. That's
because so many of them
use it irresponsibly. Like
to fill up on high-fat, high-
cholesterol foods. Foods
that can load the blood with
cholesterol, which can build
up plaque in their arteries,
increasing their risk of
heart attacks and threaten-
ing their lives. So next time
you pick up a fork, remem-
ber to handle it as you
would any other weapon.
For self-defense, not
self-destruction.

Jewish Groups Protest
Gag On U.S. Troops

Washington (JTA) — The
Defense Department is
disregarding democratic
values by barring U.S.
troops in Saudi Arabia from
making pro-Israel or anti-
Arab remarks, according to
Jewish groups.
The American Jewish
Committee and the Simon
Wiesenthal Center wrote
letters recently to Defense
Secretary Dick Cheney, in
response to a report in the
November issue of
Harper's magazine. Harper's
reprinted a chapter from
"Customs and Culture," a
troop-information pamphlet
distributed by the U.S. Cen-
tral Command to all U.S.
armed forces in Saudi
Arabia.
A Pentagon spokesman
confirmed the pamphlet's
existence, but had no im-
mediate response to objec-
tions from Jewish circles.
First among the "sensitive
subjects" listed that "should
be avoided or handled
carefully" are "articles and
stories showing U.S.-Israeli
ties and friendship."
Other taboo subjects are
"anti-Arab demonstrations
or sentiments in the United
States," "the Jewish lobby"
and "U.S. intelligence given
to Israel."
U.S. personnel are also in-
structed to not show "films
or news clips featuring pro-
Zionist actors and actresses
(e.g., Barbra Streisand, Liz
Taylor)."
"Quite frankly, we are
shocked at many of the ref-
erences in the published
list," charged Sholom Com-
ay, AJCommittee president,
and David Harris, its exec-
utive director.
"No one can be under the
illusion that our presence in
Saudi Arabia is intended to
protect a fellow democracy,"
Mr. Comay and Mr. Harris
wrote, dismissing the
kingdom and its Persian
Gulf neighbors as "current
allies" of the United States.
But "surely, we ought not
to ask our soldiers to
submerge entirely those
values of tolerance,
pluralism and open-
mindedness and have made
the United States a unique
democratic society."
Among the items in the
list to be avoided that the
AJCommittee did not object
to were "ads for pork or
shellfish."
The Wiesenthal Center
wrote Mr. Cheney, "It is one
thing for the Saudis to have

rules governing their own
citizens. It is quite another
thing for the United States
to violate its own principles
and beliefs."
