U.N. Condemns
Israeli Incursions

New York/JTA — The United
Nations General Assembly issued a
resolution blasting attacks on Israeli
and Palestinian civilians. The resolu-
tion issued Monday night also called
for an immediate end to Israeli
incursions in the West Bank.
The resolution was watered down
from the original Palestinian draft,
which made no mention of attacks
on Israeli civilians and called for a
condemnation of Israeli "atrocities"
and "appropriate action" against
"perpetrators of war crimes." The
resolution, which is not legally bind-
ing, was approved 114-4 with 11
abstentions.
During the debate preceding the
vote, many countries in Asia, Africa
and the Middle East denounced
Israel's anti-terror military opera-
tions in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip.
Israel's deputy U.N. ambassador,
Aaron Jacob, called the resolution
"one-sided." He accused the world
body of ignoring the "reality of a
relentless Palestinian suicide cam-
paign" and refusing to "allow con-
demnation_of Palestinian terrorism."

Bill Clinton Says

`I'd Die For Israel'

Toronto/JTA — President Clinton
told a fund-raiser for a Jewish chari-
ty that if Iraq attacked Israel, he
would "fight and die" for the Jewish
state.
Speaking at a $1,000 a plate fund-
raiser in Toronto for the Hadassah-
WIZO children's charity, Clinton
said he "would grab a rifle and get in
the trench and fight and die" should
Iraq mount a land attack on Israel in

response to a U.S. attack on Iraq.
Clinton, whose efforts to avoid the
Vietnam War in the 1960s became a
politically sensitive issue when he
sought the presidency in 1992, was
roundly applauded for the remarks.
Clinton added that while he did
not think there was a military solu-
tion to the ISraeli-Palestinian con-
flict, "I know there's not a terrorist
solution to it" either, the paper
reported.

Groups Mixed On
Voucher Ruling

Washington/JTA — Jewish groups
gave mixed reactions to a decision
that ruled school vouchers unconsti-
tutional in Florida.
The American Jewish Committee
and the Anti-Defamation League
hailed the ruling, in which a trial
court judge ruled Monday that the
Florida voucher program violated
the state's constitution, which says
no state money can be used, even
indirectly, to aid sectarian institu-
tions.
But the Orthodox Union, which
supports vouchers, said the ruling
was not unexpected as many states
have "anti-religious" provisions in
their constitutions, and voucher sup-
porters are working to eliminate
those amendments.
The ADL and the AJCommittee
said the ruling shows the limits of a
June decision by the Supreme Court,
which said vouchers do not violate
the separation of church and state
under the U.S. Constitution. The
two groups said state constitutions
can be more restrictive of govern-
ment funding of piivate and
parochial schools.

Israel, Be Wary Of
P.A. — Rumsfeld

Washington/JTA — Israel should be
wary of turning over land to
Palestinian leaders it can't trust, U.S.
Secretary of Defense Donald
Rumsfeld said. "If you have a coun-
try that's a sliver and you can see
three sides of it from a high hotel
building, you've got to be careful
what you give away and to whom
you give it,"
Rumsfeld said Tuesday in a ques-
tion-and-answer session with
Pentagon employees. "If you're giv-
