aid to Israel, even in the best
of times, and are even more
reluctant to do so when they
have to worry about their
own economic situations.
The United States cannot be
a strong ally overseas as
long as it remains weak at
home.
Third, as a people, we
know that when the econo-
my sours, Jews have been
used historically as
scapegoats by others in
society. This is happening in
the United States, where an-
ti-Semitic incidents reached
record levels last year in the
midst of a recession.
Democratic candidates
Gov. Bill Clinton and Sen.
Al Gore have offered a com-
prehensive plan for getting
this country back on its feet
and ready to meet the
challenges of the next cen-
tury.
With the end of the Cold
War, they believe that more
must be done to improve the
nation's infrastructure,
reform its education system,
provide job training to U.S.
workers who need new or
better skills to compete with
their counterparts overseas,
reform welfare so that reci-
pients are encouraged to find
work, convert excess
military production capacity
to commercial manufactur-
ing, control health care costs
while providing universal
health care coverage, and
restore equity to the tax
system.
While not everyone will
agree with each detail of
their plan, taken as a whole,
it advances the economic in-
terest of the American Jew-
ish community, as well as
the economic interest of the
entire country.
Of course, American Jews
are interested in other do-
mestic issues besides the
economy. Here, once again,
the Democratic ticket repre-
sents their views far better
than the GOP.
In the area of choice, Gov.
Clinton and Sen. Gore would
defend a woman's right to
choose, repeal the "gag" rule
placed on family planning
counseling by the Bush ad-
ministration, and sign the
"Freedom of Choice Act"
into law.
George Bush has repeated-
ly called for the repeal of Roe
v. Wade appointed Supreme
Court justices who have
allowed states to place re-
strictions on the right to
choose, refused to fund fetal-
tissue research that could
benefit millions of people
with crippling diseases, and
sided with Operation Rescue
in allowing anti-choice dem-
onstrators to block women

from entering abortion
clinics.
With Roe v. Wade hanging
in the balance, whom do you
want appointing the next
Supreme Court justice?
When it comes to mixing c_
religion and government,
Gov. Clinton and Sen. Gore
are staunch defenders of the
First Amendment's wall'
separating church and state.
They oppose prayer in public
schools and public school
ceremonies and would not
spend tax dollars on re-
ligious education. -
In contrast, Republicans=
have played with fire by in-
jecting religion into this (1
year's election, from Pat
Buchanan's call for a re- --
ligious war at the GOP con-
vention and George Bush's
support for prayer in public
schools and pandering to Pat
Robertson's Christian Coali-
tion, to the Republican
Supreme Court justices who
have destroyed protections
against government inter-
ference with religious prac-
tices.
George Bush may not be
able to remember a thing
about his education, but
American Jews should not
forget who best represents
their interests on these and
other domestic issues in
1992 — Bill Clinton and Al
Gore.



Tel Aviv Sets
Education Plan

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The Tel
Aviv municipality is propos-
ing to introduce a revolu-
tionary education plan in
which students would begin
school at age 4 and be able to
graduate high school by age
16.
Outlining the plan at a
news conference, Shimshon
Shoshani, director of the
municipality's Education
Department and former di-
rector-general of the nation-
al Education Ministry,
stressed that the proposed
reforms are only in the
planning stage.
Approval by both the Edu-
cation Ministry and the
teachers will be required
before the new plan can be
put into operation next year.
Mayor Shlomo Lahat said
that under the proposed
plan, some schools would be
granted total autonomy and
institutions would be in-
dividually responsible for
running themselves and
managing their finances.
