President Carter has appointed Edward Sanders, a Los Angeles lawyer, as a senior advisor on Middle East affairs and his chief contact with the American Jewish community. Sanders, who was appointed Friday, will have broader duties than Mark Siegel who resigned earlier this year in protest against Carter’s Mideast policies. Sanders, who will give advice directly to the President and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance on Mideast problems, was the president of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee but resigned that post to campaign for Carter in the Presidential election campaign in 1976.
