THE ISSUE

Observers note that an allied victory
over Saddam Hussein would be ben-
eficial to Israel, removing an enemy
that lobbed 39 Scud missiles toward
the Jewish State in the 1991 Gulf
War. But there are other reasons
such a victory would benefit Israel.

BMaND THE ISSUE

My name is Josh Diskin.

My passion for music has opened
many cultural doors. I love every-
thing from bluegrass to classic rock
to jazz. Some people say that
coming to a Jewish day school
means that I do not experience
diversity. But I say that when I get
to college, I will be able to contrib-
ute to its diversity because I have
learned who I am. Teachers at
JAMD encourage me to explore my
views and listen to the opinions of
others. Iri class we discuss every-
thing from Cyrano de Bergerac, to
the Arab-Israeli conflict, to Oscar-
winning films! My Bible teacher
inspires me to write interpretations
based on my own insights into the
Torah. I have had the opportunity to
participate in varsity sports with
students of all races, religions, and
backgrounds. JAMD encourages all
my varied interests and has helped
me appreciate the rich diversity of
the world around me.

Saddam Hussein's Iraq is a support-
er of the Lebanese terrorist group
Hezbollah and a key supporter of
the Palestinian terrorists of Hamas
and Islamic Jihad. In addition, the
Iraqis provide financial incentives to
the families of homicide bombers.
Removing Saddam would weaken
these militant extremists.

SECULAR WORRY

from page 17

mer teacher, called Jerusalem's new
mayor "such a sweet man." He
doubts Lupoliansky would change the
city's status quo.
"We're not going to see the closing of
coffee houses on Shabbat," Rabbi Ravitz
said. The Orthodox "are not supposed
to force our minds on other people."
Yet he did hint that Jerusalem resi-
dents might see a certain
"Judaification" of the city. "Jerusalem
must be a Jewish city. It is not Naples
or even Tel Aviv," he said.
Lupoliansky's political career was
born when the council of rabbis
devoted to Rabbi Eliashev appointed
him head of the Degel HaTorah fac-
tion in Jerusalem in 1989.
He was appointed a deputy mayor
in Teddy Kollek's city government and
quickly assumed responsibility for
community and family services. When
Olmert won Jerusalem's 1993 munici-
pal elections, Lupoliansky was again
elected deputy mayor.. By 1998, he
was designated Olmert's substitute
when the mayor was ill or traveling.
As the ranking deputy mayor, he
was responsible for municipal plan-
ning and construction. While a con-
troversial figure within the city coun-
cil, Lupoliansky is renowned in Israel
for founding, along with his father,
the Yad Sarah charity, which distrib-
utes free medical equipment to the
sick and disabled.
Started in 1976, the organization
now has 6,000 volunteers and almost
100 branches nationwide. D
