" By fiavid Friedman NEW YORK (JTA) - Rabbi Meir Kahane, head of the Jewish Defense League, on Nov. 25 urged the supporters of his "Democracy in Jewish Life" movement ' to obtain signatures from at least 250,000 American Jews before holding an election to name national and local leaders of the Jewish community. Speaking to more than 100 persons at a conference at the New York Hilton at which the drive was launched under an organization to be called DLIL (Democracy in Jewish Life) Kahane said that unless the quarter million figure was reached the election would not be accepted by the present Jewish establishment. It was also announced at the meeting that a national board will be named. However, Kahane urged that the JDL, which initiated the move for- the popular election of Jewish leaders, not lead the" drive in DIJL, "Take bUL out of the JDL and ' give it up to 'respectable' people" so that it will be accepted by the general Jewish community, the JDL founder urged. Kahane, who had predicted an overflow turnout for the conference, expressed disappointment at the sparse turnout. "That this room is not filled is an indictment not of , Jewish leaders but of the sheep who are being led to slaughter and are allowing themselves to be led," he declared. But most of Kahane's remarks were aimed at the leaders of Jewish organizations, particularly those in the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, whom he (CONTINUED ON PAGE IS) CJF Adopts Budget Formula The Board of Trustees of the Columbus Jewish Federation at its Nov. 24 meeting, has adopted a pre- campaign budget formula, designed to provide a method in advance of the campaign to distribute campaign funds relating to a level of campaign achievement. The formula has no application to any single or specific agency, and does not guarantee any agency an allocation in advance of the campaign. Even within the formula, flexibility of determining specific allocations is permitted. The following formula was adopted: 1. All funds for the Israel Emergency Fund of the United Jewish Appeal shall be earmarked for UJA less shrinkage arid any other costs directly attributable. 2. In the Regular Cam¬ paign, the following fixed items-shall be provided for: shrinkage, campaigning and administrative expenses, I due to Large City Budgeting 7 (CONTINUEo'ON PAGE 13>- The Moynihan?Foreign Policy Est0Ushmeht ict ■ By Joseph Polakoff WASHINGTON (JTA) - Daniel Patrick Moynihan's "almost-resignation" as the chief American representative at the United Nations has sharpened the focus on the Washington Administration's continued reluctance to 2 deal effectively with enemies of democracy which have Israel, for the present, as their chief target. Despite the President's "complete confidence" in Moynihan's efforts at the UN and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's insistence that there is "no question of muzzling him," it is widely believed that Moynihan is disenchanted with the foreign policy establishment in Washington because of its refusal to support him adequately and that he will step out once the' General Assembly completes its current session in New York. Whoever follows him, it is believed, will not be another Moynihan but a type that plays ball with the "quiet diplomacy" stylists. Moynihan's challenge to the detractors of democracy and the United. States itself has alarmed important policy makers, particularly the Arabist elements." It is this anxiety, some observers contend, that led to (tacit approval of B«tish Ambassador Ivor Richard's attack on his American counterpart before an American audience on American soil. Despite this triple violation of political . conduct between nations so closely allied as Britain and America, the State Department reacted with indifference to Richard's speech. Its attitude is seen as having reinforced a broad impression that the basis for the attack on Moynihan was hatched with, if not by, Moy nihan *s'. -; Washington colleagues.. London is seen as having its own motive' Baiting Moynihan is popu. . with his enemies^abroad and thus psychologically^helpful to London's policies, particularly economic. Some say, Moynihan's objective in being so pro-Israel and pro- democratic is to establish a solid political foundation in New York \ before announcing his, ^candidacy for , the U.S. Senate.
