U.S. Moves To Enable
Israeli Housing Loans

Washington (JTA) — A
U.S. Agency for Interna-
tional Development team is
expected in Israel soon to
begin implementing the U.S.
agreement to guarantee
$400 million in loans to
building housing for Soviet
immigrants.
Secretary of State James
Baker last week told Israel's
new ambassador to Wash-
ington, Zalman Shoval, that
he had instructed AID to go
ahead with the mission.
The AID team will
evaluate Israel's plans for
using the $400 million
before issuing the guarantee
document, which allows
Israel to seek the loans from
an American bank.
There had been reports
last week that Mr. Baker
had delayed sending the AID
mission because of continued
concern about the set-
tlement of Soviet Jews in the
West Bank, Gaza Strip and
East Jerusalem.
Mr. Baker had accepted
Israel's assurances that
none of the $400 million
would be used for settling
Soviet Jews in areas not
under Israel's control before
1967. But he reportedly
wanted greater assurances
about Israel's overall hous-
ing plans beyond the Israeli

government's promise that
Soviet Jews are not being
directed to the territories.
State Department spokes-
woman Margaret Tutwiler
repeated that the delay in
sending the AID team was
due only to the need to work
out details.
Mr. Shoval, who has not
yet presented his credentials
to President Bush, met with
Mr. Baker for an hour Nov.
2, just one day before the
secretary left for visits to
Turkey, Bahrain, Saudi
Arabia and Egypt.
During his one-week trip,
Mr. Baker was scheduled to
meet Tuesday with the
Chinese foreign minister in
Cairo and to go to Moscow
for meetings Thursday with
Soviet President Mikhail
Gorbachev and Foreign Min-
ister Eduard Shevardnadze.
Mr. Shoval said his
meeting with Mr. Baker
demonstrated that the basic
understanding between the
United States and Israel
continues, despite differ-
ences of opinion on some
issues.
Disagreement between
friends does not break an al-
liance, the ambassador said.
The close ties are as strong
as ever and can withstand
disagreement.

NRA Disavows Staffer's
Anti-Semitic Remark

Washington (JTA) — The
National Rifle Association
has disavowed a comment
made by one of its workers
that "most anti-gun and an-
ti-hunting stuff is backed by
Jews."
The comment, made by
Willis Corbett, the gun
lobby's representative in
Missouri and Illinois, ap-
peared Oct. 28 in the St.
Louis Post-Dispatch.
Mr. Corbett was discussing
the gun control records of
local lawmakers in prepara-
tion for Election Day, but
also spoke of the NRA's
other enemies, including
police chiefs, the press and
the Jewish community.
The NRA's disassociation
was made in a letter Oct. 30
to the newspaper, which was
supplied by the group. "The
comments in this story do
not represent the views of
the National Rifle Associ-
ation," wrote Robert Grego,
director of its field services
division.
"Any inference that the

(NRA) is anti-Semitic is
completely false," he added.
"NRA has, for over 119
years, accepted law- abiding
American men and women
of all races, religions and na-
tionalities as members."

In addition, Mr. Grego
said, "NRA was an equal
opportunity association long
before laws were enacted
against prejudice in our
nation. In fact, the NRA is
the oldest civil rights organ-
ization in the United
States."

The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith wrote
the gun lobby last week
without knowledge of the
NRA disavowal, which the
ADL considers insufficient.
Abraham Foxman, ADL's
national director, said that
"the religion of those on
either side of the debate is
irrelevant." Mr. Foxman
also claimed that Mr.
Corbett was "playing with a
weapon potentially as
dangerous as any gun."
