Schumer Plans Radical
Arms Sale Curb Bill

Arms ,sales to Middle
Eastern nations will be on
the front burner again when
Congress comes back to town
next week.
And one congressman is
readying a proposal that
may add a new dimension to
the debate. ,
Rep. Charles Schumer
plans to introduce a bill that
would prohibit all U.S. arms
sales to countries that are
technically still in a state of
war with Israel — a list that
would include the major
recipient of American arms
in the Arab world, Saudi
Arabia.
Currently, the second in-
stallment of the administra-
tion's record-setting sale to
the Riyadh, government is on
hold until the Saudis com-
plete an assessment of their
military needs in the post-
Desert Storm environment_
But Secretary of Defense
Dick Cheney has left little
doubt that the administra-
tion will actively pursue
arms sales to Arab allies,
possibly to the tune of $30
billion.

- Rep. Charles Schumer:
A bias toward Israel.

'It's a 10-month fellowship program in Israel for only $1,000.*
•It's travel, study, work and exploration.
•It's hard. It's fun. It's the best adventure you'll ever have.
'It's for outstanding young men and women, age 19-24.
•It's easy to find out more.

Capitol Hill sources do not
expect Mr. Schumer's
radical measure to succeed.
But some pro-Israel activists
hope that it will help shift
the debate onto new ground
by focusing on the fact that
many of this country's new-
found allies in the region
still refuse to recognize
Israel — and still are in a
state of war with the Jewish
state.

CJF Produces Popular
Energy Savers' Guide

Congress may be sluggish
in dealing with the thorny
energy issue — but one Jew-
ish group has just
distributed a booklet on_
energy conservation that
has won rave reviews from
some prominent legislators.
"Energy Conservation: A
Federation Priority,"
published by the Council of
Jewish Federations, is a
"how to" manual listing a
wide range of federal pro-
grams that can help non-
profit organizations save
money and save energy.
"There's been a tremen-
dous response since we sent
it out," said Mark Talisman,
director of CJF's Washing-
ton Action Office. "Some
legislators have contacted us
and asked if they could send
it out to their constituents. I
was surprised that even in
the middle of the Persian
Gulf crisis, this book ge-
nerated such a response."
Sen. Barbara Mikulski
(D-Md.) and Sen. Howard
Metzenbaum (D-Ohio) have
asked for permission to
distribute the energy guide
to constituents.
The booklet is the result of
a decade-long collaboration
between CJF's Washington
