Will Russian Aid
Hurt Israel Aid?

JAMES D. BESSER WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT

H

ow will the adminis-
tration pay for its $1.8
billion package of aid
for Russia without
cutting back other impor-
tant foreign assistance pro-
grams? So far, the White
House doesn't have a clue —
and this is making Israel's
friends in Washington
increasingly uneasy.
While testifying before
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee last week,
Secretary of State Warren
Christopher again insisted
that the administration is
committed to the full $3.2
billion for Israel for the
upcoming fiscal year.
But when pressed by Rep.
Howard Berman, D-Calif., he
indicated that the Clinton
foreign policy team still does
not have a plan for
bankrolling the new aid
package.
Jewish legislators are
worried that when the bat-
tle over aid begins in
earnest early next month,
pressure will mount to pay
for some help to Russia by
trimming aid to Israel and
Egypt, which have tradi-
tionally been protected from
congressional budget cut-
ters.

Jewish House members
met late last week to map
out their strategy, especially
on such issues as whether
or not to press for a so-
called "Camp David" section
in the foreign aid appropria-
tions bill. This would pro-
vide a vehicle for a number
of non-monetary provisions,
such as opposing the Arab
boycott and curtailing arms
sales to countries unfriendly
to Israel.

"Russian aid is a big nut,"
said Rep.Charles Schumer,
D-N.Y., a member of the
House Foreign Affairs
Committee. "It's hard to fig-
ure out where the money
will come from. But a lot of
us on the committee say
that, politically speaking, it
would do more harm than
good in terms of passing
Russian aid to take it out of
Israel and Egypt."
Mr. Schumer indicated
that pro-Israel forces proba-
bly have the votes to protect
this year's aid allotment.
But he suggested that it will
take an all-out effort, with
strong backing from the
Jewish community, to offset
the impact of the Russian
aid program.

Jews Are Split
Over Nomination

Lani Guinier's nomination
continues to generate
tremors that could turn into
a full-blown political earth-
quake in the next few
weeks.
Ms. Guinier, who is
named to head the Justice
Department's civil rights
division, has been criticized
for her views on the Voting
Rights Act. Jewish groups,
led by the American Jewish
Congress, were among the
first to question her views
that critics charge are con-
trary to the traditional "one-
person one-vote" idea.
The issue is particularly
sensitive to Jews because
"proportionate representa-
tion" schemes, which aim to
ensure that under-repre-
sented minorities gain their
rightful places in state legis-
latures and Congress, often
hurt the Jewish community,
which tends to be overrepre-
sented in government.

But several Jewish lead-
ers say a public clash over
Ms. Guinier would not be in
the Jewish community's (
interests.
"The Jewish community
hasn't opposed a major
administration nominee in
many years, including the
civil rights chiefs during the
conservative Reagan and
Bush administrations," said
one Jewish group's
Washington representative.
"For us to oppose Guinier,
despite the fact that our dis-
agreements with her are
almost entirely confined to...
voting rights, sends a clear
and very disturbing mes-
sage to the black communi-
ty."
Some critics say the
Jewish community reacted
too quickly and harshly to
Ms. Guinier's nomination.
Rabbi David Saperstein,
director of the Religious
Action Center of Reform
