Shamir to Seek Dialogue with ‘average’ U.S. Jews

Premier Yitzhak Shamir intends to bypass U.S. Jewish leadership during his American visit this week and instead establish direct dialogue with a large number of rank-and-file Jews, Davar reported Friday.

Shamir is said to have recently expressed dissatisfaction with decisions made by several Jewish organizations in support of the Labor Party position in favor of an international conference for Mideast peace.
