guests by exchanging greetings

president speaks fluently.
One Jew who played a promi-
nent role in helping to restore the
Aristide government did not at-
tend the ceremony: Ira Kurzban,
a Miami attorney who had be-
came a close aide to the deposed
president. Mr. Kurzban was in
the Haitian capital, helping pre-
pare for the transition back to
democracy.
The son of a Romanian-Jew-
ish refugee, Mr. Kurzban spent
14 years working on a pro-bono
basis on behalf of Haitian
refugees. He was later at the cen-
ter of the effort to restore the de-
posed leader to power.

Delaware Race
Debates Aid

A nasty Senate contest in
Delaware could be the harbinger
of a renewed debate over foreign
aid, always a political time bomb.
Sen. William V. Roth, a four-
term Republican incumbent, is
working hard to fend off a brisk
challenge from state Attorney
General Charles Oberly. In a
year of expected GOP gains, De-
mocrats believe that the
Delaware Senate seat is one they
can pick up.

Sen. William V. Roth Jr.

Senator Roth has countered
with hard-hitting ads empha-
sizing his long-standing opposi-
tion to foreign aid. The ads have
never singled our Israel for spe-
cial treatment. But the senator's
willingness to make the anti-aid
crusade a major part of his plat-
form worries pro-Israel activists
in Washington, who fret about
the possibility that deep voter
hostility to the aid program could
turn into a major campaign is-
sue.
The Delaware debate has been
enlivened in recent days by a
controversial advertisement from
Senator Roth suggesting that his
opponent would vote for aid to
Iraq. But the quote from Mr.
Oberly cited in the ad actually
was made by him in front of a
Jewish group — and it referred
to his support for aid to Israel.
