Pro-Israel Braun
Subject Of Whispers

Chicago Senate candidate
Carol Moseley Braun — who
unseated incumbent Alan
Dixon in the March Dem-
ocratic primary — is the ob-
ject of a whispering cam-
paign seeking to link her to
anti-Israel forces.
What's curious about the
anti-Braun whispering cam-
paign is that the candidate,
who is black, is running on
an unusually strong pro-
Israel platform.
In a recent interview, Ms.
Braun was blunt in criticiz-
ing the Bush administration
for the recent slide in
U.S.-Israel relations.
"If anything, the Bush
administration has turned
its back on a friend," she
said. "That's lamentable.
There are those who contend
that there are problems on
both sides of the equation.
But frankly, my view is that
when you have a democracy
in the Middle East, as vola-
tile as that area is, you have
to support it."
Ms. Braun indicated
strong support for $10
billion in loan guarantees
for Israel — and said that
conditioning the guarantees
on changes in Israeli policy
would undermine the peace
process.
She flatly rejected the no-
tion of an independent Pa-
lestinian state.
"I feel compassion for
displaced people," she said.
I think that on one

hand, the Palestinians in- ,
side of Israel should have
some form of autonomy. But
that certainly does not in-
clude the creation of a state
within the confines of Israel
— and that means thel,
borders today. Israel is a tiny
country. Quite frankly, to-'
talk about creating a (Pales-
tinian) state within the cur-
rent territory really under-
mines the concept of safe and
secure borders."
She also affirmed Israel's
need to retain the Golan
Heights.
Ms. Braun, who worked

The candidate is

during her tenure in the El-
linois state legislature, be-
lieves that strong support-
from both the Jewish and
the African-American com-
munities in Illinois will help
repair relations between the
two groups.
"The politics of division
that we're hopefully coming ,
out of has set up all kinds of
divide-and-conquer dy,
namics," she said. "It had
people pointing fingers at <
each other, blaming each
other for their troubles. The
challenge for all of us is to
repair that by example."

Moynihan Tries Again
On Jerusalem Bill

Sen. Daniel Patrick
Moynihan is a man who
understands the value of
persistence in politics.
For years, Mr. Moynihan
has sponsored bills intended
to convince the White House
to move the American em-
bassy in Israel to Jerusalem
— an effort that routinely
wins strong congressional
support, but — so far — has
failed to sway the White
House.
This time around, to com-
memorate the 25th anniver-
sary of the reunification of
Jerusalem, Mr. Moynihan
has introduced a measure
the administration will have
a harder time opposing.
Mr. Moynihan's new
resolution incorporates Pres-
ident Bush's own words —
including quotes from a 1980
speech in which the presi-
dent promised that he would

never question the unity of
Jerusalem.
The current resolution,
calls on the administration
to celebrate the anniversary <
by declaring that it is U.S.
policy that Jerusalem will
never again be divided, and
that no religious groups will --,
ever again be denied access_,
to their holy places in the
city.
"We believe this will help
the cause of peace and
strengthen the hand of the
forces in Israel that want
peace," said a spokesman for
the senator. "As long as the
question is raised that
Jerusalem can be
dismembered, Israelis will
have problems with the
peace process." The resolu-
tion is currently gathering
co-sponsors. When the'l
number reaches 51, Mr.
Moynihan will make his li
move.
