ested, after touring Israel in July and
meeting top security officials there,
in targeting the five major re-insurers
— the companies that underwrite
insurance companies. A re-insurance
boycott would go a substantial way
toward crippling Iran's energy sector.
The McCain campaign is similarly
exercised about Iran, but is mapping
a different approach focused on sup-
porting internal political resistance to
the regime.
"I think you'll see John McCain,
diplomatically, working very aggres-
sively with countries throughout the
Middle East who feel, and properly
so, a threat from the rise of the Shi'a
extremist regime, and try to get a
larger condominium to address them:'
said Richard Williamson, the Bush
administration's envoy to Sudan who
also is advising the McCain campaign.
McCain officials did not return
requests for interviews on the topic,
but Williamson advocated a "soft"
campaign of encouraging democrati-
zation within Iran as well as building
up a regional front that would isolate
the regime.
"There has to be a recognition that
that regime has its own fissions and
divisions within it:' he said, before rat-
tling them off: "The balance of power
between the president, Ahmadinejad,
and the supreme leader, constituen-
cies, it has economic growth problems;
it has an increasingly dissatisfied
younger population and the majority
of the country is under 30 years of age,
and it has stresses with neighbors:'

Williamson added, "I think you're
going to see John McCain utilizing the
instruments he has been involved in,
all over the world, in over 90 countries,
in trying to help civil society, endemic
democratic institutions grow."

Israel's Crit ics


The Charge

/ i=a,

In recent years, labor unions in
several Western countries have
employed strong language to
attack Israel, condemning what
they call the "apartheid wall" and
urging an economic boycott of and
divestment from the Jewish state.

The Answer

In a reversal of this trend, the
Canadian Council of Carpenters
last week unanimously endorsed
what they called a historic resolu-
tion calling for an end to such
unfair criticism of and threats to
Israel. The resolution complained
about efforts to de-legitimize
Israel's democracy, endorsed
Israel's peace efforts and its right
to exist and to defend its citizens.
