What was the first foreign
delegation to meet with the
new prime minister of
Turkey?
That distinction belonged
to a group of B'nai B'rith
leaders, who recently sat
down with Prime Minister
Tansu Ciller about the
slaughter in Bosnia, the
possibility of a wider war in
the Balkans, and the wave
of xenophobia in Germany,
which has been directed
largely at Turkish workers.
The B'nai B'rith delega-
tion, led by president Kent
Schiner, promised to use the
group's contacts with
German officials to address
the thorny issue of dual citi-
zenship for Turkish workers
in Germany.
The session also touched
on the relationship between
Turkey and Israel. The
Turks now have a full
ambassador in Israel, and
Turkey has become one of
the top destinations for
Israeli vacationers.
"One of our objectives was
to encourage Ms. Ciller to
factor Israel into her strate-
gic and diplomatic think-
ing," said Dan- Mariaschin,
B'nai B'rith's director of
public, international and
Israel affairs. "Obviously, it
is a very volatile region, and
the developing relationship
between Turkey and Israel
is very important."

Counterterrorist
Victory

A Jewish group won a
small but satisfying victory
last week when a Senate
committee voted to change
State Department rules on
the payment of rewards for
information leading to the
arrest and conviction of ter-
rorists in this country.
Under current guidelines,
the counterterrorism
reward program is confined
to information on terrorist
acts taking place overseas.
The Anti-Defamation
League, in a recent letter to
Sen. Claiborne Pell, D-RI,
the chairman of the Foreign
Relations Committee, called
for passage of an amend-
ment to the State
Department Authorization
Bill that would let the
department offer rewards to
help solve terrorism cases in
this country, like the bomb-
ing of the World Trade
Center in New York.

-

The reward program,
according to ADL officials,
has been an important tool
in investigating and prose-
cuting terrorist acts.
The Foreign Relations
committee apparently
agreed; last week, the legis-
lators included that lan-
guage in their markup of
the authorization bill.

Jesse And The
Jews

Jesse Jackson continues
his dogged effort to patch up
his troubled relations with
the Jewish community.
Last week, the former
presidential candidate
appeared at a B'nai B'rith
district convention in
Washington, and once again
tried to lay out his pro-
Israel credentials.
"I support Israel's right to
exist with security, with
internationally recognized
boundaries," he said. "I am
equally convinced that
Israeli security and
Palestinian justice are two
sides of the same coin."
He made another passion-
ate plea for black-Jewish
cooperation in dealing with
the mounting crisis of
America's inner cities, and
he made a strong pitch for
New York Mayor David
Dinkins, whose fight for
reelection this year will
hinge to a large extent on
Jewish voters—many of
whom still harbor a grudge
over the mayor's handling of
the Crown Heights affair in
1991.
Mr. Jackson warned
against a Jewish electoral
backlash against the
besieged mayor.
"If David Dinkins has
been reduced to an anti-
Semite, there is almost no
hope left," he said. "His spir-
it is a redeeming one, a rec-
onciling one; it is a spirit
that must be embraced and
not rejected."
On the question of
Jerusalem as the undivided
capital of Israel, Mr.
Jackson was somewhat
vague.
"My view is that
Jerusalem remains a point
of contention in serious
negotiations," he said.
"Jerusalem is an interna-
tional city; in a peace
process where there is give
and take between Jews and
Palestinians and Jordan-
ians and Syrians and
Egyptians, the basic control
of that city will no doubt
remain in the hands of the
Israelis. But in my judg-
