Court To Hear
`Under God' Case
Washington/JTA — The U.S.
Supreme Court has agreed to deter-
mine the constitutionality of the
phrase "one nation, under God" in
the Pledge of Allegiance.
The high court announced that it

District v. Newdow, in which the
9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

`Not Rabbi's Son'
Washington/JTA — Presidential can-
didate Gen. Wesley Clark is not
descended from a long line of rabbis,
as he once claimed.
The Democratic candidate said he
had been given bad information
before giving a speech at a New York
yeshivah in 1999. The information
claimed he was the "eldest son of the
eldest son of the eldest son" of a rabbi.
Clark, who repeated the rabbi claim
as recently as January in an interview
with the Forward, says he still is proud
that he is descended from Jews on the
side of his father, a kohen, or member
of the priestly caste.
"I always felt a real kinship to the
courage of European Jews who went
to Israel," Clark told the Associated

New Brunswick/JTA — New Jersey's
governor and its two U.S. senators
joined 7,000 Israel backers at a rally at
Gov. James McGreevey and Sens.
Frank Lautenberg and Jon Corzine, all
Democrats, urged the crowd Oct. 9 to
support Israel during the Palestinian
intifada (uprising). Some 100 pro-
Palestinian activists on the fringes of the
rally chanted anti-Israel slogans.
Meanwhile, the pro-Palestinian group
NJ Solidarity held a conference over
the weekend at a local hotel, after being
denied permission to meet on campus.
Organizers of a national pro-
Palestinian conference that had been
planned for Rutgers chose to disassoci-
ate themselves from the New Jersey
group, which they consider too radical.
