Jay Rockefeller Seeking
Jewish Political Base

The national press has just
gotten wind of Sen. Jay
Rockefeller's presidential
ambitions.
But Mr. Rockefeller's
aspirations are not par-
ticularly surprising news in
the Jewish community,
where the West Virginia
legislator has been unusual-
ly active for several years.
"There's no question that
he's been on the money
trail," said a political analy-
sis for a major pro-Israel
group. "He's been working
diligently to develop a
strong base in the Jewish
community, which is an im-
portant step for any national
candidate."
Part of that effort was a
well-received speech at the
recent policy conference of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
But Mr. Rockefeller has
not emerged as a leader on
Middle East issues, this

"There's a lot of unhap-
piness with Bush, Baker,
Sununu and Scowcroft in our
community," said Morrie
Amitay, the dean of pro-
Israel lobbyists in Washing-
ton. "If this continues — and
if there's more of an effort to
blame Israel for the prob-
lems in the peace process —
we could see a very strong
reaction in favor of the
Democrats. But they have to
find a candidate."

Some observers see the
potential for a resurgence of .--(1
Jewish support for the
Democrats in 1992 — if the
Democrats can get their act
together and find a nominee
with both national appeal
and strong pro-Israel creden-

source suggested — and his
home base of West Virginia
is not a promising one on
which to build a presidential
campaign.

London (JTA) — A former
deputy prime minister of
Sweden active in fighting
anti-Semitism offered a pes-
simistic forecast for the
1990s here at a public
meeting of the European
Jewish Congress Commis-
sion on Terrorism and Anti-
Semitism.
He predicted anti-
Semitism would grow.
Per Ahlmark, a leader of
Sweden's Liberal Party, is
one of the non-Jewish mem-
bers of the Swedish Corn-
mittee on Anti-Semitism
founded eight years ago. The
committee was instrumental
recently in silencing a
viciously anti-Semitic radio
station serving the Islamic
community in Stockholm.
Mr. Ahlmark said that
1982, when Israel invaded
Lebanon, was a pivotal year
marking the serious revival
of anti-Semitism.
Since then, Moslem immi-
grants have absorbed Euro-
pean anti-Semitism, which
they have added to their
own, while non-Moslem re-
visionists in Britain, France,
Canada, Australia and the
United States denied the
occurrence of the Holocaust
to a new generation with no

memories of World War II.
Mr. Ahlmark stressed the
need to detach criticism of
Israeli government policies
from Israel's and Jews' right
to exist. Even low levels of
anti-Semitism must not be
tolerated, Mr. Ahlmark in-
sisted.
His remarks were second-
ed by Hayim Pinner, secre-
tary-general of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews,
who cited examples of anti-
Semitic cartoons in the
British press.
A delegate from Holland
said anti-Semitic groups are
quick to sense any policy
disagreement among Jewish
leaders, and it is important
therefore to present a united
front.
There has been controver-
sy among British Jews over
the Board of Deputies' alleg-
ed reluctance to publicize
the recent epidemic of
cemetery desecrations in
Britain.
Dr. Lionel Kopelowitz,
president of the board, and
Eric Moonman, chairman of
the European Commission
on Anti-Semitism, discussed
the issue of copycat crimes
that follow news reports of
cemetery vandalism.
