Joe Knollenberg: One of six Michigan
"no" votes.

issues than when the embassy
gets moved.
"Regardless of how I feel
about the issue, one never
agrees with everyone on every-
thing," Mr. Egren said. "The em-
bassy location is a minor issue
in terms of why I think they
(Knollenberg and Abraham) are
good for the state of Michigan."
The embassy relocation mea-
sure, first introduced by Senate
Majority Leader Bob Dole, re-
quires the establishment of an
American embassy in
Jerusalem by May 31, 1999, and
authorizes construction spend-
ing of $25 million in the 1996 fis-
cal year and $75 million in the
1997 fiscal year.
The bill will become law with-
out the president's signature
(when a bill is neither signed nor
vetoed by the president within
10 days, it becomes law auto-

matically). President Clinton
has opposed the Republican-
sponsored measure from the be-
ginning, fearing it will hamper
the peace efforts. While he re-
fuses to sign the bill, he won't
veto it because he figures a veto
would precipitate another con-
gressional vote on the bill that
would garner the necessary two-
thirds majority to pass.
Some Democrats, who shared
President Clinton's concern,
were swayed to vote for the bill
because of an added provision.
The stipulation permits the
president to suspend the dead-
line for up to six months if na-
tional security is on the line.
Sen. Carl Levin was one of
many Democrats who broke
ranks with President Clinton
and supported the relocation

Some constituents
disagree with Sen.

During debate on the floor,
Sen. Levin, a bill co-sponsor,
said establishing the American
embassy in Jerusalem could
have a positive effect on the
peace process.
"It is now Israel's capital," he
said. "It is clearly going to re-
main Israel's capital. We, as Is-
rael's ally, should make it very
clear we recognize that fact and
act to assure the movement of
our embassy to the capital of the
State of Israel." ❑

cally sovereign state. But the
success of those two things —
military and political autonomy
— depends on public support
and a sense of justice, and the
latter areas are faltering.
"Israel," he continued, "is fail-
ing to counter the popular view
that 'we're the Goliath and
they're the David.' We're allow-
ing the Arab side to convince us
and the world that Israel is the
demon and that its goal of a
Jewish homeland is not pure .

lematic than influencing Amer-
ican Jewish opinion. The
left-wing Israeli media, he said,
has been far more subjective and
hard driving than the media in
the United States.
"We've failed to fight the bat-
tle for public opinion," he said.
"If we fight, we'll win because
truth is more powerful than lies.
But if we don't believe that we
have a right to that land, Israel
will fall."
