Peres-Rabin Rivalry Keeps Coalition Rule
48-hour flap earlier this month
over Ezer Weizman's alleged
contacts with the Palestine
Liberation Organization cast a
revealing light on changing
party politics in Israel, which
may foreshadow events to
While the crisis was resolved
by compromise before it
became irreversible, the
Likud-Labor coalition came
within a hair's breadth of col-
lapse and not because the
maverick Weizman was con-
sidered unexpendable by his
Laborite colleagues.
The unity government tot-
tered because Vice Premier
Shimon Peres, the Labor
Party leader, was able to put
together at least the template
of an alternative regime, based
on a coalition led by Labor
with support from the ultra-
Orthodox parties.
The government did not fall,
largely because of Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who
would rather be a junior part-
ner in an alliance with Likud
than see Peres become prime
Rabin was able to save the
government by brokering a
compromise that Prime Minis-
ter Yitzhak Shamir readily
accepted and Peres could not
The episode showed, how-
ever, that the religious bloc is
no tonger wedded to the
nationalist camp represented
by Likud. It also indicated that
Peres' camp in Labor is willing
to pay the exorbitant political
price demanded by the Ortho-
dox to buy national leadership.
Rabin demonstrated once
again his ability to frustrate
Peres' ambitions.
Peres and his associates
used the statutory 48-hour
waiting period to deftly knit
together a new shadow coali-
tion, with the Agudat Yisrael
and Degel HaTorah parties as
Labor's partners.
The ultra-Orthodox Sephar-
dic party Shas was considered
almost certain to join, as well.
In agreeing to join, Agudah
no longer demanded a guaran-
tee that the "Who Is a Jew"
amendment to the Law of
Return be adopted by the
Knesset. The amendment,
fiercely opposed by most Dias-
pora Jews, would disqualify
non-Orthodox converts to
Judaism from receiving auto-
matic Israeli citizenship upon
making aliyah.
But Peres was prepared to
offer the Orthodox an ironclad
pledge that the status quo on
religious matters would be
unaltered and that their educa-
tional and social institutions
would benefit from increased
state funding.
Details of Labor's successful
wooing of the religious bloc
came not from Peres where
it might have raised some
skepticism but from Shamir,
who explained to the hard-line
elements of Likud why he had
to compromise on Weizman to
save the government.
On another level, the latest
crisis appears to have high-
lighted an evolving new real-
ity: The Orthodox are swing-
ing toward Labor and were
prepared to strike a deal even
over so ostensibly unsavory an
issue as a Labor minister's
alleged contacts with the hated
Rabin managed fairly easily
to keep this in the realm of the
hypothetical for the time
being. The question is, but for
how long?
JNFFomters Study Fire fighting In U.S.
Two teams of Israeli forest
management experts, most of
whom work for the Jewish

study of firefighting and
watershed management in the
U.S., hosted by the United
States Department of Agricul-
ture Forest Service.
The two specialized teams,
which came to the U.S. as part
of a growing exchange pro-

U.S. Forest Service, focused
on forest firefighting research

No more flyers have shown
up since the first were found a
month ago. But their source
has not been traced either.
St. Cloud police are trying to
track it down, but it distracts
them from the search for Wet-
terling, according to FBI
agent Byron Gigler, who is
investigating the kidnapping.
He noted that the police
have received a number of
phone calls from citizens out-
raged by the flyers.
Herbert Goodrich, a sociol-
ogy professor at St. Cloud
State University, said the inci-
dent is part of the increase of
anti- Semitic acts in Minnesota
during the past decade.
Although the general com-
munity is not up in arms about
the incident, Goodrich said,
"We really ought to be doing
something more about this and
see what's going on.
"Jews condemn it, but it
would be very nice if the Chris-
tian community would in some
way condemn this activity pub-
licly," he added.

Villager, a St. Paul neighbor-
hood newspaper, Rev. Calvin

seminars and research super-
vised by the U.S. Forest Ser-
vice at sites throughout the
country, including Arizona,
California, Idaho, New Mex-
ico, Oregon, Utah and Wash-

jects covered were the effects
of weather on fire behavior,
fire investigation, prescribed
fires, cost-effective fuel treat-
ments, wildlife management
and effective fire suppression
techniques. Topics studied by
the watershed team included
revegetation, post-fire water-
shed rehabilitation, erosion
control and soil investigation
in forest planning.
Commenting on the pro-
gram, Dr. Samuel J. Cohen,
JNF executive vice president,
said, "The JNF foresters
learned a tremendous amount
of valuable information that
they will bring back to Israel.
This ongoing effort will help us
in our goal of protecting all of
Israel's precious forests, and
we look forward to the contin-
ued sharing of knowledge
between the forest agencies of
two great nations."

Pattern Sounds Alert
Neo-Nazi Skinhead gangs were responsi-
ble for more than 100 acts of anti-Jewish
vandalism and desecrations in 1989.
But that alarming figure is but a fraction
of the 845 such incidents as well as another
587 episodes of harrassments, assaults or
threats against Jews or Jewish institutions
during the past year, according to the
annual audit by the Anti-Defamation
The B'nai B'rith agency's report also
noted a 30 percent rise in anti-Jewish
incidents on college campuses.
Even more disturbing is the fact that
there were 38 cases of arson, bombings and
cemetery desecrations, highest total ever
recorded and an increase of more than 35
percent over the previous year.
In Florida, the number of acts of vandal-
ism dropped from 89 in 1988 to 66 in 1989,
a tribute to the generally swift response by
local and state law enforcement officials.
Two of the major factors which
accounted for the sharp national increase in
incidents in 1988, the beginning of the
Palestinian uprising and the 50th anniver-
sary of Kristallnacht, did not occur in 1989.
And yet the pattern of anti-semitism was
reflected in incidents in 44 states and the
District of Columbia.
While we are watching carefully to see
that the rise of nationalism in Eastern
Europe does not lead to a new outbreak of
anti-Jewish feelings and actions, we cannot
lessen our vigil at home.
Expanded information and counteraction
program, strict enforcement of anti-bias
crime statutes and increased efforts by law
enforcement authorities all are necessary.
Accelerated efforts in our schools to
combat prejudice must be given special
At the same time, serious attacks on
black civil rights leaders and judges have
reached intolerable levels.
The Federal Government, as well as all
Americans, must stand up against a wave
of bigotry which should alarm every citizen.
This is a time for official action as well as
UJA-Federation Raises
$800 Million In '89
United Jewish Appeal announ-
ced Monday that its 1989 Pas-
sage to Freedom campaign for
Soviet Jews raised $50.1 mil-
lion as of the Dec. 31 closing.
The amount falls short of the
campaign's ambitious $75 mil-
lion goal, but UJA leaders nev-
ertheless are said to be pleased
with the results.
"Unlike the late 1970s, when
there was also a wave of Soviet
Jewish emigration," said UJA
National Chairman Morton
Kornreich, "we have been able
to maintain the integrity of our
regular allocations and to col-
lect a record amount of cash
from the regular campaign.
"Together with Passage to
Freedom, the total UJA-
federation campaign will reach
$800 million for the first time
in history," he said.
Kornreich reported that
UJA had already collected $33
million of the Passage to Free-
dom funds raised.

Panamanian Jewry
Needs Urgent Help
Recent conversations with
Jewish and Catholic friends in
Panama persuade me that the
American removal of General
Manuel Noriega from power
was without question a posi-
tive and necessary achieve-
ment. The tragedy is that so
many lives, Panamanian and
American, were lost in the
struggle to unseat tyranny.
During my earlier visits to
Panama and Central America,
it was clear that Noriega was
running a police state that
dominated its citizens with
fear and terror.
It is not to Jewish credit that
one of Noreiga's key hench-
men was an Israeli, Mike Har-
ari, a former leader of the
Mossad. (While all of us oppose
"collective" Jewish guilt, none
of us committed to Israel can
evade the reality that Harari's
prominence in the media as a
Noriega aide did neither Israel
or Jewry any good.)
Some 5,000 Jewish citizens
of Panama, mostly concen-
trated in Panama City, have
special cause to be relieved by
Noriega's defeat. In recent
days, Noriega's followers in
the so-called "Dignity Batta-
lions" rampaged with arms
through the business districts,
looting arid destroying almost
everything in sight.
A very high percentage of
the destroyed stores was
owned by Jewish businessmen.
Panamanian Jewry has played
a leading role in FEDECC, the
federation of Central Ameri-
can Jewish communities. Their
economic devastation cannot
but have repercussions
throughout the whole of Cen-
tral American Jewry.
Clearly, the drug criminal
Noriega made Panama's econ-
omy into a basket case for all
Panamanians. American Jew-
ish leaders two weeks ago
wisely urged the White House
to do everything possible to
help rebuild that devastated
That request will need to be
followed up regularly to assure
that Panama and its vital Jew-
ish community received all
necessary aid to rebuild its
former thriving life.
Rabbi Mare H. Tanenbaum is inter-
national relations consultant to the
American Jewish Committee.
Italian Jews Ask Good Faith
The president of Italy's Jew-
ish community, Tullia Zevi, has
asked the Catholic Church for
a "concrete gesture" of its
good faith on an issue that has
embittered Jewish-Catholic
relations for more than a year.
Addressing a news confer-
ence here, Zevi asked the
Church to make unequivocally
clear its intention to honor an
agreement to relocate the Car-
melite convent presently on
the grounds of the former Aus-
chwitz death camp in Poland.

"" Why U.S. Israel
Relationship Endures
Underlying American fore-
ign policy since the end of
World War II has been a desire
for peace and stability
throughout the world. Achiev-
ing this has been difficult but
the recent welcome events in
Europe demonstrate that our
post-war policy of containing
Soviet military power and
political influence has bought
time for communism to col-
lapse of its own weight.
Sadly, not all parts of the
globe are experiencing the rise
of democracy and a decline in
military tensions. One of the
most historic "hot spots," the
Middle East, remains potenti-
ally explosive. Tensions
between Israel and her Arab
neighbors remain great. Ter-
rorism continues unabated.
The senseless Lebanese civil
war drags on. American and
other hostages remain help-
lessly imprisoned by various
Arab lawless bands. Radical
governments continue to
acquire sophisticated weapons
and the potential for war in
that area remains great.
Clearly, the picture in the Mid-
dle East is one of continued
instability with a high risk for
The most serious new mili-
tary threat with long-range
implications for nuclear insta-
bility is the recent successful
launch of an Iraqi satellite. The
rocket employed as a launch
vehicle clearly establishes
their capability to now become
another nation with long-
range missile capability. Con-
sidering that Iraq used chemi-
cal warfare in their recent war
with Iran makes this a potenti-
ally foreboding event.
In the center of this Middle
East cauldron stands Israel,
the only true democracy in the
region. We have had a long
and deep friendship, dating
back to President Harry Tru-
man being the first head of
state to recognize the new
state of Israel in 1948. While
we have not agreed on each
and every issue, and won't in
the future, we both seek stabil-
ity and the avoidance of war.
And when war has been insti-
gated by her Arab neighbors,
the United States has stood
firm every time in our support
of Israel.
Accordingly, our nation and
Israel share a healthy military
relationship which is funda-
mental to the interests of both
countries. For example, the
Nebraska Air National
Guard's Civil Engineering
Squadron will travel to Israel
in 1990 to learn first hand
Israeli techniques for the rapid
repair of damaged runaways.
We have benefited from Israeli
combat experience with Amer-
ican weapons against Soviet
weapons. Israeli ports provide
an opportunity for the ships of
our Sixth Fleet in the Mediter-
ranean to make port calls for
ship repairs and crew rest
after long times at sea in dan-
gerous areas of Libya and
Furthermore, Israel and the
U.S. share intelligence infor-
mation regarding the ever-
resent threat of terrorism,
ince it is only through inter-
national cooperative efforts
that terrorism can be
defeated, this relationship is of
great importance to the Free
World. We are also cooperat-
ing in research for the Strate-
gic Defense Initiative, over
which I have jurisdiction as
Chairman of the Senate Strat-
egic Forces and Nuclear
Deterrence Subcommittee.
This research could help defeat
an attempt to launch a single
nuclear or chemical weapon
mounted on a ballistic missile
against us or Israel by a mad-
man such as Kadhafy in Libya.
While the Israeli govern-
ment has been divided of late,
and our differences over how
to handle the Palestinian ques-
tion have been front-page
news, it would be instructive
to ponder for a moment what
the Middle East would be like
today if Israel did not exist or
had been defeated in an earlier
There would be no true
multi-party democracy in the
area and there certainly would
be no peace. The Middle East,
one of the world's strategic
crossroads as well as its oil
capital, would be left in the
hands of warring factions. Iran
is still in the grip of religious
fanatics. Syria executes its
internal political opponents
and has never given up its
decades-old dream of incorpor-
ating Lebanon. Libya's Kad-
hafy would have little counter-
balance except for Egypt,
which paid a high price of Arab
disdain for over ten years due
to signing the Camp David
accords. Iraq would again be
tempted to rejuvenate its terri-
torial ambitions and the Jorda-
nian state could very well
become an endangered spe-
cies. Finally, envision a Pales-
tinian state which would
undoubtedly be led by a "Pres-
ident" Yassir Arafat.
This is why legislation
requiring the President to sub-
mit periodic reports to Con-
gress on the U.S.-PLO "dia-
logue" to ensure compliance
with promises regarding an
end to terrorism and recogni-
tion of Israel's right to exist is
so important. Another bill to
prohibit the United States
from making further contribu-
tions to the United Nations if it
grants full membership to a
unilaterally-declared Palestin-
ian state also is pending and
having the desired effect.
President Bush concurs with

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
... "And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh"
(Exod. 7.10).
"The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, hath sent me unto thee, saying:
Let My people go"
VAERA God told Moses that He had first appeared to
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as El Shaddai, and had made a
covenant with the patriarchs to give them the land of Canaan.
Now, hearing the unhappy cry of the children of Israel, the
Almighty was reminded of his covenant.
Pharaoh refused to let the children of Israel depart from the
land of Egypt. God brought seven plagues on the Egyptians, in an
attempt to force Pharaoh's hand: blood, frogs, gnats, flies,
murrain, boils, and hail. At first Pharaoh conceded to Moses, "I
and my people are wicked. Entreat the Lord,, and let there be
enough of these mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you
go" (Exodus 9.t7-ti). But, when the plagues stopped, Pharaoh's
heart was hardened again, and he refused to let the Israelites go.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of trie Law is extracted and
baaed upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman Tsamir, published by Shengold The volume is available
