No Appeal
UN Mission
The Reagan administration
has decided not to appeal a
U.S. District Court ruling in
June barring the closing of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion's observer mission to the
United Nations.
Initial reaction from Jewish
groups was mixed, with some
expressing dismay and others
greeting the decision with
In a statement the Justice
Department said, "On balance,
the interests of the United
States are best served by not
appealing." -, __
It said that it is the adminis-
tration's "normal policy to
appeal adverse district court
decisions of this kind." But it
went on to say that closing the
mission in any event would be
contrary to U.S. treaty obliga-
tions, especially "in light of
foreign policy considerations,
including the U.S. role as host
of the United Nations organi-
The announcement was
made as the 60-day period
during which the United
States was given an opportu-
nity to file an appeal expired.
Judge Edmund Palmieri of the
U.S. District Court in New
York ruled June 28 that
closing the mission would
violate the 1947 U.N. Head-
quarters Agreement.
That treaty prevents host
nations from closing the U.N.
Missions of member states.
Palmieri said the treaty leaves
no doubt that the United
States is obligated to refrain
from impairing the function"
of the PLO's U.N. mission.
The challenge was brought
after the PLO ignored Justice
Department orders to close
the office by March 21 under
the 1987 Anti-Terrorism Act.
That law, which helped lead to
the closure of the PLO's Wash-
ington information office, was
adopted by Congress late last
year and signed by President
Reagan Dec. 22.
"The administration will
continue to oppose efforts to
reopen the PLO information
office in Washington," the
Justice Department said
While the State Department
agreed with Congress that the

Government-in-Exile Option
Arafat told United Nations
Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar that a
government in exile is one of
the ideas he plans to present
when the Palestine National
Council meets next month in
But the Palestine Liberation
Organization chairman
appeared to be more cautious
than some of his aides in
discussing details of the plan
for statehood.
The normally publicity-
hungry Arafat surprised the
Geneva press crops by
canceling a news conference
scheduled to take place after
his 90-minute meeting with the
secretary-general. Instead of
making a public appearance,
the PLO chairman was report-
edly whisked out a back door

part, made it clear that the

A statement issued by the
PLO reported that the discus-
sion focused on the secretary-
general's efforts to secure
compliance with various U.N.
declarations. Arafat expressed
concern over alleged Israeli
acts of aggression against
Palestinian refugee camps and
villages in southern Lebanon.
The PLO chairman was also
said to have expressed his
organization's desire to partic-
ipate in an international peace
conference on the Middle East.
Israel has opposed PLO partic-
ipation in such a conference,
though the government is split
on whether to back a confer-
ence that would include a joint

Arafat was vague in
discussing details of PLO
plans to declare an inde-
pendent state in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip and set
up a government in exile. He is
apparently wary of the reac-
tion of more militant factions
in the PLO, which see the idea
as an abandonment of
the PLO's armed struggle
against Israel.
The outlines of the proposal
were described in interviews
given by Bassam Abu-Sharif, a
close aid to Arafat. Sharif told
The New York Times and the
Associated Press that the
Palestine National Council
could pass a resolution, signed
by Arafat with the approval of
the various PLO factions, that
would declare a state and

MBA Executive Suite Study
NEW YORK A ground-
breaking study of young
Jewish business executives has
found no evidence that wide-
spread discrimination against
Jews prevails today in the
executive suites of corporate
America. This contrasts
markedly with the situation of
only a generation ago, when
patterns of exclusion were
Despite these findings,
however, both the chief
researcher and the sponsor of
the study caution that compla-
cence about corporate anti-
Semitism is unwarranted, both
because the research deals
only with a specific population
and because no one can predict
how long the gains found by
the study will persist.
The study, sponsored by the
American Jewish Committee,
has also found that most of the
Jewish executives surveyed do
not have strong ties to Jewish
life and culture.
The study, titled "Succeeding
in Corporate America: The
Experience of Jewish MBA's,"
was conducted by Samuel Z.
Klausner, a professor of soci-
ology at the University of
Pennsylvania. The survey
dealt with the career experi-
ences of 444 men and women
who had received the MBA
degree in either 1974 or 1979.
All the respondents were
graduates of either the Drexel

youth, were directed from the
ground and not from a heli-

Graduate School of Business,
or Harvard Business School.
Twenty-seven percent of them
were women, four percent
were blacks, and 19 percent
were Jewish. Together the 444
MBA's had, over the course of
their careers, worked in a total
of 666 firms.
Among the study's key find-
ings were that although Jews
and non-Jews earned similar
salaries at the start of their
careers, after five or ten years
Jews' earnings were higher
than those of non-Jews; Jews
tended to concentrate less in
the manufacturing and service
sectors of the economy and
more in the commercial sector,
which is growing more rapidly;
during their undergraduate
years Jews were more likely
than non-Jews to major in
liberal arts fields rather than
in technical or vocational
areas, and to attend those
colleges considered the most
competitive, and women and
blacks, on average, had lower
salaries and lower positions
than did white males.
The study gathered its infor-
mation through mailed ques-
tionnaires. Among the find-
ings reported were these:
There is no evidence of
widespread discrimination
against Jews in the executive
suite. This conclusion is based
on the failure to find these
conditions: a notable absence
of Jews in particular classes of
firms; Jews clustered in a
narrow range of positions
within firms; Jews occupying
positions of lower authority
and earning lower salaries
than Protestants and
Catholics; a refusal by Chris-
tian senior executives to act as
mentors for Jewish junior
executives; a belief on the part
of the respondents that reli-
gious discrimination is prac-
ticed in their companies."
Jews changed jobs more
frequently than did non-Jews,
and there was no evidence that
their job moves were the result
of discrimination. Moreover,
the firms that Jews joined
tended to experience a high
degree of growth.
Five to 10 years after
starting out as junior execu-
tives, 83 percent of the Jews in
the sample held administrative
positions, as compared to 69
percent of the Protestants and
53 percent of the Catholics.
Folk Art Calendar
An art calendar for the
Jewish year 5749, featuring
the work of a Jewish papercut
artist specializing in tradi-
tional themes, is available
from the National Federation
of Temple Sisterhoods
NFTS is the women's
agency of the Union of Amer-
ican Hebrew Congregations,
central body of Reform
Judaism in North America.
The calendar is illustrated by
Tamar Fishman of Bethesda,
Maryland, an artist whose
original papercut, "American
Landscape," was presented by
President Ronald Reagan to
then-Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begin in 1981.
The NFTS art calendar
covers the period September
1988 through August 1989.
Tamar Fishman's work is a
celebration of the Jewish folk
tradition of papercutting,
which flourished among Jews
in Central and Eastern Europe
in the 19th century and also
appeared in Jewish communi-
ties in North Africa and the
Middle East.
The most popular form of
papercut was the mizrach,
which depicted mystical
kabbalistic inscriptions
designed to ward off evil
spirits and which often
adorned the eastern wall of
synagogues. Other traditional
papercuts included the
ushpizin, lines of poetry
welcoming the patriarchs
which were strung with harvest
fruits over the entrance to the
sukkah during the autumn
Feast of the Tabernacles, and
ketubot (marriage contracts).
Museum Gets
Temple Relic
TEL AVIV (JTA) A small
ivory pomegranate verified to
be the first known relic from
the First Temple has gone on
display at the Israel Museum.
The thumb-sized pome-
granate a rimon clearly
bears the inscription
"Belonging to the Temple of
the Lord, Holy to the Priests."
The rimon, which was
acquired by the Israel Museum
in Jerusalem for $550,000, is
less than two inches tall and
one inch wide. Carved from a
believed to be the oldest
known inscription with the
Hebrew name of God.
The only other relic of the
First Temple is said to be
silver scrolls bearing the bene-
diction of Kohanim, the high
priests. The scrolls were
recently found in a burial cave
overlooking Jerusalem's
Hinnom Valley, outside the
Old City.
The rimon is believed to be
at least 100 years older.

single piece of ivory, it has a
flat base through which is cut a
small hole.
The rimon may have topped
the scepter of a high priest,
according to instructions laid
down in Exodus and Kings I.
Rimonim were also used to
adorn the high priests' robes.
The rimon is the first arti-
fact to be attributed to the
First Temple built by King
Solomon. Scientists who
analyzed the small object have
dated it to around the 8th
century B.C.E.
Solomon's Temple was dest-
royed by the Babylonians in

international journey that
began nine years ago, when
the rimon was bought in Israel
by an unknown party and
smuggled out of the country.
The buyer in turn sold the
object to an anonymous party
in Switzerland, who bought it
for the museum.
An Israeli archaelogist
examined the rimon in Swit-
zerland and verified its authen-
Israeli newspapers specu-
lated that the rimon might
have been purchased by an
Israeli for a few hundred
dollars from a local dealer and
smuggled to Europe, where it
was placed on display in
France. The object's value was
estimated when the exhibition
curator sought advice for
insurance purposes.

The High Holydays Explained
From the book, ''Explaining
Judaism to Jews and Chris-
tians," by Rabbi Samuel M.
_ Every autumn the Jewish
people observe what are
known as the High Holydays.
This is a period of ten days
beginning with Rosh
Hashanah, which means New
Year, and ending with Yom
Kippur, the Day of Atone-
The Jewish New Year has
nothing to do with the
calendar year. Jews
regard Jan. 1 as the beginning
of the regular year, as ever-
yone else does.
The term, new year, is used
by the Jews at this time to
mean the new effort which
they make to correct mistakes
they may have made in the
past. It is a new year of consci-
ence, not the calendar.
Actually, the time when we
get going all over again on
duties and tasks temporarily
suspended is the autumn.
That's when school starts after
the summer vacation; that's
when organizations start their
activities again. It's a more
logical break in the year than
Jan. 1.
At that important time,
when the summer is over and
the brisk breezes of fall begin
to arouse us, the Jewish people
take time out to try to stir
themselves to improve the
quality of their deeds.
They do this at worship
services in their synagogues.
They recite prayers thanking
God for giving men and
women the power to tell right
from wrong. They sit silently
and think about the errors
they may have committed.
They sing hymns in which the
idea of forgiving others is
emphasized. They listen to the
rabbi who reminds them that
believing in God means trying
to make use of the powers for
goodness and mercy which are
deposited in all of us, but
which we sometimes neglect.
They hearken to the Shofar,
which is a ram's horn, with a
rousing sound, designed to
awaken the conscience that
might be slumbering.
On the tenth day of this
period of penitence, or repen-
tance, there takes place the
observance of the Day of
As recommended in the
Book of Leviticus of the Bible
(Chap. 23), the Day of Atone-
ment is a day of fasting.
Fasting makes us uncomfort-
able, so it makes us think of
the discomfort we may have
brought to others by our
thoughtlessness or negligence.
As with all Jewish holydays,
the observance of Yom Kippur
begins in the evening. The
worship service then includes
the singing of the hymn, Kol
Nidre, which means All Vows,
a plea for forgiveness for deci-
sions made in haste and
without regard for the feelings
of others.
On Atonement Day the
worshipper thinks of his faults
and tries to atone for them;
that is, realize how wrong they
were and make up his mind not
to repeat them. He tries hard
also to feel forgiveness for
those who have wronged him.
The prayerbook, the songs, the
sermons, the large gathering
in the temple, all these lift him
up to a new level of under-
standing and tenderness and
give him a new sense of the
sacredness of life.
These days are high. That is,
they lift the worshipper up in
an effort to come closer to the
Source of good conduct. They
are holy, because nothing is
more sacred than improving
the relationship between
When the High Holydays are
over, Jews wish one another a
happy new year of the spirit.
They say to one another Good
Yomtov, which means Happy
Holiday. Or, they say L 'shanah
Tovah, which is Hebrew for
Happy New Year.
Although the Jewish High
Holydays are the most
important religious occasion
for the Jewish people, there is
nothing about the holydays
which does not apply to all
people. That is why one rabbi
once told his congregation, the
way that we can really atone is
to strive to be at one with

calling on rabbis and rabbinical court judges to "abstain from
political activity."
The statement, issued by the party's Platform Committee for
Religious Affairs, surprised many who had expected a statement p 1 || uWWW j /p
more conciliatory towards the religious community. V/U.11/V
It is very common for people
of all races to use the word
Kosher to signify "OK" as to a
project, person, food or idea.
Jewish people know it means
much more. It is an all-
inclusive word meaning proper
supervised correct, as to
dietary laws proper ingre-
dients properly prepared
and disbursed correctly.
Kosher also means clean and
OK for Jews to use, eat, buy
and utilize. Is Kosher going
out of favor? No way at all.
In June, 1988 at the Javitz
Center (N.Y.C.), a Kosher
Food Exhibition displayed
some 15,000 Kosher certified
products from some 1,000
distributors. Compare that to
a number of years ago, when
there were only about 3,000
such certified products marked
Kosher. This explosion in
Kosher products is most
noticeable in about five or six
1. Delicatessen kosher is
the major market for tongue,
corn beef, pastrami, frankfur-
ters and salami; white fish,
nova, gefilte fish, etc.
2. Kosher Meats
chickens, fresh and frozen in
all different preparations.
3. Hors d'oeuvres are a
major breakthrough for
Kosher products. In catered
parties of all kinds, caterers
require a large assortment of
interesting and tasty items to
help make a party different.
Over 50 varieties, and possibly
even 100, are on the market,
most of them parve, some
4. Cakes and Candies a
very large number of Kosher
products are now available in
all markets. These are both
dairy-marked and parve.
5. Kosher Markets There
are at least seven enormous
Kosher markets in Florida,
found in Miami, Ft. Lauder-
dale, Boca Raton, Delray
Beach, West Palm Beach and
elsewhere. Is there signifi-
cance in this? Yes. These large
super Kosher markets carry all
Kosher products. Their prices
are generally lower than the
regular non-Kosher markets,
particularly in the delicatessen
products, the packaged Kosher
meats, delicacies, and their
special line non-competitive
of Kosher dinners-for-two.
In this field of dinners-for-
two, great ingenuity has
created a variety of as many as
12 different type dinners,
including brisket, chicken,
turkey, stuffed cabbage, sweet
and sour meatballs, veal roast,
veal loaf, fricassee, London
broil, and many others. These

products come on the shelves
fresh every day, except
Saturday, and can be frozen as

such as Passover, tens of thou-
sands of such dinners are sold.
These super Kosher markets
are a great advance in Kosher
marketing. I predict that they
will eventually appear in all
highly Jewish areas of New
York, Philadelphia, Chicago
and other large cities. I also
predict that regular super
markets will soon be dis-
playing Kosher products in
substantially larger show-
cases, occupying more floor
It is very interesting that
these super Kosher markets
are attracting many non-Jews.
I asked several that I met why
they were buying there.
Surprised, they all answered:
why not? The food is excellent,
kosher or not, arid the prices
are right.
The large number of fully-
attended Hebrew schools all
over the country may also be
having a great affect on the
Kosher market and family
habits. Orthodox and Conser-
vative Jews generally follow
the dietary laws, which is what
Kosher is all about.
Is it possible that the
common use of the word
Kosher meaning OK is a
marketing plus for all the
Kosher products now
exploding in the market place?

Summer Programs
For BBYO Leaders
A number of local youths,
members of AZAs or BBGs, of

Avraham Tamir, director
general of Israel's Foreign
Ministry, met here with
China's ambassador to the

told Tamir that his country is
interested in bringing about a
settlement to the Middle East
conflict, and that China will
not stand in the way of any
comprehensive settlement in
the region.

to accommodate 50 new beds.
The Emanuel Foundation
for Hungarian Culture, which
has also indicated its desire to
support the hospital, spon-
sored avisit to the facility in
early July.
The hospital's director, Dr.
Andras Losonci, led the tour,
showing the hospital's
apparent needs to an
entourage that included
Simcha Dinitz, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization-
Jewish Agency Executive.
Home's Dire Needs
Losonci is both director of
the hospital and president of
MIOK (the National Associa-
tion of Hungarian Jews), the
official Jewish community
body. With two hats tipping
precariously from his head as
he runs from one obligation to
another, Losonci tries his best
wherever he goes to impress
on his listeners the nursing
home's dire need.
Losonci said the money will
cover construction expenses,
but that afterward the hospital
will still need all the basics,
from bandages and equipment
to beds, robes and medical
personnel. At present, said
Losonci, eight doctors care for
the 200 patients.

Women Help Elect
Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi
Yisrael Lau, for the past nine
years chief rabbi of Netanya,
was elected Tel Aviv's seventh
Ashkenazic chief rabbi by a
30-member electoral panel
that for the first time included
four women members.
Lau's election ended a hard-
fought campaign by the local
religious council to prevent the
four women from participating
in the vote.
The election of a new chief
rabbi was delayed for two
years, following the death of
Rabbi Yedidya Frankel,
because of the Labor Align-
ment's insistence on having
women members on the elec-
toral panel.
One of the appointees,
lawyer Haviva Aviguy, sued
the city with assistance from
NA'AMAT, the women's
Labor Zionist organization,
and won..The religious council
was compelled to give in to a
Supreme Court ruling in May
that barring women from the
panel which has no religious
functions was discrimina-
The electoral panel includes
10 City Council representa-
tives, 10 religious council
representatives and 10 repre-
sentatives of the city's syna-
gogues. Of these, 21 members
voted for Lau and five voted
for his only competitor, Or
Akiva Chief Rabbi Menahem
Haham. One ballot was
spoiled, two panel members
were abroad, and the
remaining vote could not
immediately be accounted for.
Several of the rabbis entered
the hall to cast their ballots
only after the women members
had voted and had left the
Lau, regarded as a liberal in
philosophy, indicated after his
election that the largely
secular character of Tel Aviv
would not be changed, and

No Quick Confirmation
The Senate will not likely vote
in the remaining months of the
Reagan administration to
confirm William Brown as
ambassador to Israel, know-
ledgeable sources said.
The current ambassador,
Thomas Pickering, has served
in that post since Aug. 1, 1985,
and is the most senior member
of the State Department's
Foreign Service.
Brown, the U.S. ambassador
to Thailand, was second in
command at the U.S. Embassy
in Tel Aviv under Pickering's
predecessor, Samuel Lewis.
He was nominated in May to
replace Pickering.
It is up to Sen. Claiborne
Pell (D-R.I.), chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, to schedule nomi-
nation hearings.
While a committee staffer
said that Brown's paperwork
for the nomination "is
complete," his nomination is
not on the agenda of the
committee's sole planned
hearing before the targeted
Oct. 4 recess. In addition, no
"lame duck" session of
Congress is planned for
November or December,
following Election Day.
The Washington Post
reported that one reason for
not confirming Brown, along
with other proposed ambassa-
dors, is that they might not be
serving for very long, with a
new president being sworn in
next January.
A pro-Israel source added
that Brown probably will not
be confirmed, because his
nomination is part of a chain of
job swaps, one of which the
committee opposes. Members
of the panel are said to be
against confirming Ronald
Spiers, currently underse-
cretary of state for manage-
ment, as ambassador to
The administration's plan
calls for Pickering to get
Spier's job and Brown to take
Pickering's post in Israel.

to 1974, he was editor of the The Profile

Manuscript Documents
Ritual Murder Trail
A rare 15th century transcript of the trial of the Jews accused
of the ritual murder of a Christian infant in Trent. Italy, was
donated to Yeshiva University by New York philanthropists
Ludwig and Erica Jesselson.
Known as the '"Trent Manuscript," the document is the only
known record to exist in German of the Middle Ages trial of the
northern Italy Jewish community accused of the ritual murder of
Simon of Trent. Only two other shorter versions, written in
Latin, exist, according to Yeshiva University authorities.
Written in 1948 for Eberhardt the Bearded, First Duke of
Wurttemberg, Germany, the manuscript contains the testimony
of the entire Jewish community.
After the infant's body was discovered near the house of the
head of the Jewish community shortly before Easter of 1475, the
confessions of 17 of the Jews were extracted after 15 days of
torture, according to Yeshiva authorities.
Of the 17 Jews accused and tortured, one died in prison, six
were burned at the stake and two were strangled.
A papal emissary was run out of town when he arrived and
announced that the results of his inquiry were contradictory to
the local trial.
Proceedings reopened in 1476 under the court of Pope Sixtus
IV, which upheld the libel. By the end of the year, five more Jews
were executed; the property of the remaining Jews was

Sanctions Against
Syria Stand
The Reagan administration
will not remove current sanc-
tions against Syria as long as
terrorist groups, most notably
Abu Nidal's militant Pales-
tinian organization, are
allowed to operate from
Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, State
Department officials said.
Most recently, Abu Nidal
claimed responsibility for a
grenade attack in Haifa that
wounded 25 people.
The possibility of repealing
the sanctions was raised after
the department's 1987
terrorism report linked Syria
to just one major terrorism
incident in 1987, as compared
to three in 1986.
A department source said,
however, that "there are no
plans" to remove them,
although some "could be lifted
at some point."
State Department spokes-
woman Phyllis Oakley praised
the "reduction in direct Syrian
involvement in terrorism" in
1987. But Oakley said the
reduction would not lead to
Syria's removal from the
department's list of state spon-
sors of terrorism.
Syria has been on the list
since it was first drawn up in
1979. Listed countries cannot
receive U.S. foreign aid or
goods and technology that
would improve their military
or terrorist support capabil-
As long as there are
"terrorist groups training in
Syrian-controlled areas,"
Oakley said, "Syria remains on
the list."
Yosef Gal, spokesman for
the Israeli Embassy here,
refused to praise Syria for any
recent improvement in its
stance on terrorism.
"We have not seen anything
to indicate that Syria has
changed its policy on support
for terrorism," he said."
Sanctions against Syria
were imposed in 1986 after a
British court implicated Syria
in the attempted bombing of
an El Al Airlines plane in
London, which had more than
230 U.S. citizens aboard.
The sanctions include
barring Syria from partici-
pating in Export-Import Bank
loans or programs and from
receiving subsidized wheat
from the Department of Agri-
They also bar Syrian Arab
Airlines from selling airline
tickets in the United States.
The sanctions have a
"symbolic significance," the
source said. He said that the
United States is not a main
trading partner of Syria, so
that the volume of trade
"would not rise much" if they
were removed.
In a related development,
while Syria has not had an
ambassador to the United
States since 1986, a new U.S.
ambassador to Syria, Edward
Djerejian, was sworn in
replacing William Eagleton,

Some Tasty Ways To Sweeten The New Year
Each Jewish holiday has its
own characteristics and its
own traditional foods. In the
celebration in the home, there
are many foods which are
important because of what
they symbolize.
At Rosh Hashanah, the
traditional braided Shabbat
challah loaf is baked in a round
form and is dotted with
raisins. This challah, along
with slices of apple, are dipped
in honey, symbolizing the
hopes for a full, wholesome
and sweet New Year.

Israel's Sweetest Industry: Honey
(WZPS) When the spies
that were sent into Canaan
returned to base, they spoke of
a land flowing with milk and
honey. This sweet
throughout most of mankind's
history the only sweet avai-
lable aside from fruits has
always been treasured.
Modern Israeli beekeepers are
finding that despite alterna-
tive sugars and diet conscious
populations, honey still
remains highly popular with
local consumers and as an
export item.
Although a good part of the
2,000 tons of honey exported
from Israel each year is
produced by the large apiaries
of kibbutzim, there are also a
large number of private
apiaries, ranging from small
enterprises of a dozen hives or
so to those with hundreds of
hives. Israeli Arabs and resi-
dents of the administered
territories are among some of
the most successful of the
private beekeepers but it took
them a while to accept that, in
Israel, all hives have to be
The licensing is required in
order to make sure that one
apiast does not graze his or her
(many good beekeepers are
women) bees on another's
"pasture" and to allow for
veterinary inspection of hives.
Bee diseases are taken seri-
ously and hives may not be
moved from one area to
another until certified as
But honey itself is only one
bee product produced for local
consumption and for export.
One of the most expensive side
products of the hive is Royal
Jelly, a material secreted by
juvenile female bees and used
to feed the queen throughout
her life. This jelly is highly
prized as a food and as a
cosmetic additive.
Pollen from wild flowers is
also collected from the hives
and sold in health food stores
as a protein supplement for
vegetarians and, of course, the
wax from the honeycombs is in
high demand both for making
honeycomb bases and for supe-
rior candles. One of the most
interesting hive products is
prophylis, a black tarry wax
secreted by bees and used as a
calking material in the hive.
This material is used by
homeopaths and naturopaths
since it has a strong germicidal
and mild antibiotic action.
For many apiasts, however,
pollination is where the real
business is. There are a
number of crops, particularly
citrus, cucumber, melon,
alfalfa and clover, that must be
pollinated by bees. Every year
in spring and autumn, as
Israel's two growing seasons
approach, thousands of hives
are hired for pollination and
beekeepers all over the
country are besieged with calls
from kibbutzim, moshavim and
private planters.
Sometimes, if a hive is not
immediately available, a
farmer may have to delay
planting for a couple weeks in
order to be assured that his
crops will be properly pollin-
ated when they blossom.
variety of flavors and honey
lovers are selective about
which kind they want. Conse-
quently some expert apiasts
specialize. There is wildflower
honey from the hills of the
Galilee, and the earthy after-
taste and scent of a summer
filed; eucalyptus honey,
starkly pale and lightly tangy;
carob honey, dark and full
bodied; wild herbal honey from
the oregano plants in the Jeru-
salem hills that is prized by
herbalists; and, from the
coastal plain, orange blossom
honey, an all time favorite,
with the lingering scent of an
orange grove in bloom.
Most bees kept in Israel are
of the Italian strain and all
beekeepers invest regularly in
artificially inseminated queens
to ensure the purity of their
stock. The Italian strain is
valued because it is a good
honey producer yet mild
mannered and not inclined to
mount an attack. There is no
point in allowing a pure bred
queen to make a mating flight
because the local wild bees are
far stronger and faster than
the hive's own Italian males
and there is no chance of them
competing with the wild
drones and mating with the

prevent the deportation of 25
Palestinian activists, appar-

The unprecedented legal
campaign is fueled by the
apparent success of the Pales-
tinians at winning political
points on the issue abroad. The
U.S. government's angry reac-
tion to the planned deporta-
tions is the latest victory in the
propaganda war.
Israel's political echelons
have rejected the American
protests against what would
be the largest deportation of
Palestinians since 1967. Israeli
leaders have reiterated their
conviction that the deporta-
tions are justified and in
accordance with all national
and international laws.
But Palestinian lawyers
have vowed to take authorities
to the mat over the deporta-
tions. Whereas in the past
potential deportees refrained
from appeals, or withdrew
them in the middle of the
process, now all 25 of them
have decided to exhaust all
legal means.
The reason for this change of
approach, according to Pale-
stinian sources, is an aware-
ness that never before has the
Palestinian uprising enjoyed
such widespread international
According to this school of
thought, the declaration of an
independent Palestinian state
that would recognize Israel
would create an international
atmosphere that would make it
more difficult for the Israelis
to go ahead with the deporta-

Urges Pressure on Israel

Major General Rehavam

right-wing hawk, launched his
new Moledet (Motherland)
political party at its inaugural
meeting, firmly nailing the
motto "transfer to his mast-
head as the main plank in the
party's political platform.
The meeting was attended
by several hundred people,
mainly older citizens, who
applauded wildly every time

Zeevi, presently director of
Tel Aviv's Land of Israel
Museum at Ramat Aviv,
insists he plans to remove the
Arabs from Israel only by
agreement with them, and not
by force.
He told the gathering that he
dares to say aloud that the
Arabs should be removed from
ISrael what many Israelis
feel in their hearts.
"He has brought the idea of
the transfer of the Arabs out
of the closet and presented it
to the public view, for their
consideration and accep-
tance," his supporters say.
Meir Kahane's Kach party
also openly promotes the idea
of the forced transfer of Arabs
from Israel to the Arab states.
The right-wing Tehiya party
also supports the idea, but is
less blatant in pressing for it
as an open policy.
According to a Modiin
Ezrachi public opinion poll
published in Maariv there has
been a marked political shift to
the right since the start of the
Palestinian uprising nine
months ago.
While 53 percent of the
1,278 people questioned said
they had not changed their
political position since the
unrest began, 32 percent said
they had become more
hawkish, while 14 percent said
they had shifted to the left and
were more dovish today than
Rabin Rules Out
Separate Talks
tions has been delayed,
because Arab lawyers refuse
to travel to the central prison
in Nablus, where some of the
potential deportees are being
detained, while the city is
under curfew.
But even if the military advi-
sory boards in Gaza and
Nablus reject the appeals of
the accused, as they have in
almost all previous deportation
cases, the potential deportees
still have the option of
appealing to the High Court of
Justice, Israel's supreme
Israeli Cabinet ministers
exchanged accusations at their
weekly session over who
leaked news of the deporta-
tions in the first place. Likud
Minister Moshe Arens accused
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres' office for the leak, while
Peres blamed Arens.
Despite the threat of depor-
tations, the situation in the
territories has changed little.
A quarter of the residents of
the West Bank and Gaza Strip

non-governmental organiza-

pressure on Israel to "promote

Javier Perez de Cuellar also
recommended that the inter-
national community make a
concerted effort to persuade
Israel to accept the applica-
bility of the Fourth Geneva
Convention of 1949 to the
administered territories.
The convention prohibits the
expulsion "for any reasons
whatsoever" of civilians from
an area under military occupa-
tion. Israel insists that the
convention does not apply to
the territories, since it has not
extended Israeli law to the
areas it administers.
Perez de Cuellar was
addressing the fifth interna-
tional meeting of Non-
Governmental Organizations
at UN European headquarters
The secretary-general
referred to the NGOs as a
"network of organizations"
devoted to "the achievement
of the inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people in confor-
mity with UN resolutions." He
described the NGO role as
While describing certain
measures taken to deal with
the emergency situation in the
territories, Perez de Cuellar
also strongly emphasized that
"measures to enhance the
safety and protection of the
Palestinian people in the occu-
pied territories, though
urgently needed, will neither
remove the causes of the
recent tragic events nor bring
peace to the region."
He emphasized the need for
a political settlement to the
problem, "which responds
both to the refusal of the
Palestinian population of the
territories to accept a future
under Israeli occupation and to
Israel's determination to
ensure its security and the
well-being of its people."

Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin ruled out separate peace
talks with the local Palestinian
leadership from the adminis-
tered territories.
In a briefing to the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, Rabin said negoti-
ations on the future status of
the territories could only be
conducted with a joint Pales-
tinian-Jordanian delegation.
Talks with local Palestinian
leaders, the defense minister
said, could cbVer a variety of
subjects, but not the overall
issue of peace. He also indi-
cated that he would not rule
out future talks with Arab
residents now under adminis-
trative detention.
Rabin's remarks were seen
as an attempt to clarify state-
ments he has made since
Jordan's King Hussein
announced he was severing
ties to the West Bank.
Some of his statements have
been construed as encouraging
the development of a local
Palestinian leadership that
would serve as an alternative
to both the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization and Jordan.
