U.S. News & World Report;1/10/94, Vol. 116 Issue 1, p17
Reports that the United States is not alone in anguishing over Russia's Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Israeli diplomats are also debating what to do about the leader of the misnamed Liberal Democratic Party, which garnered nearly one fourth of the popular vote in the Russian parliamentary elections of December 1993. Israeli hope that they might cajole him into moderating his demagogic views, particulary his outbursts of antisemitism.
