Washington (JTA) — As a shaky
cease-fire takes hold in Bosnia,
Jewish groups are praising an ef-
fort in Congress to lift the arms
embargo on the Muslim nation
by this spring.
Majority Leader Robert Dole,
R-Kan., introduced legislation on
the first day of the new Congress
calling for an end to the arms em-
bargo if the Bosnian government
asks for weapons or by May 1,
whichever comes first.
Mr. Dole then put the bill on
the back burner saying he will
not seek an immediate vote.
Despite many Jewish activists'
general concerns over the new
Republican Congress, most
praised Mr. Dole's bill, one of the
first pieces of legislation unveiled
by the new leadership.
Jewish groups have been
pressing for stronger U.S. action
in Bosnia ever since the war
broke out in the former Yugoslav
republic. In particular, Jewish or-
ganizations repeatedly called on
the United States and the United
Nations to lift the arms embargo.
Most Jewish groups continue
to support lifting the arms em-
bargo, but for some, the cease-fire
has changed the playing field.
Former President Jimmy
Carter last month negotiated the
latest of a series of attempts to
bring an end to the bloody car-
nage in Bosnia.

The three-week old cease-fire
has held with few exceptions, ac-
tivists said.
The American Jewish Con-
gress took the strongest stand
among Jewish groups. It went a
step further even than Mr. Dole
in support of the lifting of the
arms embargo regardless of the
cease-fire.
Arguing that the Bosnian
Muslims cannot defend them-
selves against the Serbs, Mark
Pelavin, AJCongress's Washing-
ton representative said, "It's time
to get serious about lifting the
embargo."
B'nai B'rith, meanwhile, holds
little hope that the cease-fire will
hold., but the group is supporting
Dole's measure.
"The Serbs are factoring the
cease-fire into their military de-
signs," said George Spectre, as-
sociate director for international,
governmental and Israel affairs
for B'nai B'rith. 'The cease-fire is
a moot point because during the
winter they generally don't fight
anyway."
Others are taking a more cau-
tious approach.
"We are yielding to the cease-
fire," said Rabbi David Saper-
stein, director of the Religious
Action Center for Reform Ju-
daism.
Lifting the embargo now "could
jeopardize the cease-fire."
