Peres Negotiates With Liberal Faction
Labor Hopes Slim As Knesset Recesses
Democrats,
Over Bush
WASHINGTON (JTA) A
Jewish advocate of the Demo-
cratic Party accused a Republi-
can counterpart for being an
"apologist for President
Bush's recent statement on
Jews settling in East Jerusa-
lem.
Hyman Bookbinder, consult-
ant to the recently created
Democratic Jewish Study
Group, made the charge to
Ben Waldman, executive
director of the National Jewish
Coalition.
The Jewish Study Group was
founded earlier this year by
prominent Jewish Democrats
to provide a stronger Jewish
voice in the Democratic Party
from outside the party struc-
ture.
The NJC, which was founded
at the start of the Reagan
administration, is the official
Jewish voice of the Republican
Party.
Bookbinder specifically
attacked Waldman for refus-
ing to comment publicly dur-
ing the debate, before the
Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America, on
the administration's position
on East Jerusalem.
"Frankly," Waldman
replied, "the most important
role of a group of supporters is
to be there during the bad
times."
Only privately would a
senior Jewish Republican offi-
cial say here that Bush "made
a mistake on an issue that we
are all concerned about."
For his part, Waldman
attacked the American Jewish
Committee for making the
claim that "the Jewish inter-
GOP Spar
Statement
ests in America are pro-choice,
pro Equal Rights Amend-
ment" and in favor of a version
of child-care legislation that
would bar aid to sectarian-
based programs.
Bookbinder had been the
AJCommittee's Washington
representative and still serves
as a consultant.
"There should be a truth in
packaging law that says that
Jewish groups can't go out and
say, 'this is the Jewish posi-
tion,' said Waldman. "There
is only one Jewish position on
issues and that's halacha,"
he argued.
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Knesset headed for its Passo-
ver recess, apparently ready to
reconvene at short notice if
Shimon Peres can put together
a viable coalition government
for its approval.
The Labor Party leader has
only a few days left to accom-
plish the task, out of the 21-
day mandate he received from
President Chaim Herzog on
March 20.
He has made little progress
so far, but hope glimmered
faintly when the recently
formed Party for the Advance-
ment of Zionist-Liberal Values
announced this week that it
was prepared to hold coalition
talks with Labor.
The Zionist-Liberals consist
of five former members of
Likud's Liberal Party wing,
who defected from Likud in
February in protest against
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's peace diplomacy.
The new faction is headed by
Yitzhak Moda'i, the former
minister of economics and
Planning, who has been one of
hamir's most severe critics.
Political insiders believe its
willingness to meet with Labor
is a tactical ploy to improve its
bargaining position with
Likud. They say Peres'
chances of persuading the five
breakaways to join a Labor-led
government vary inversely
with their ability to extract
from Shamir the promise of
safe seats on the Likud list in
the next elections.
Rabbi Schach Denounced
For Attacking Kibbutzniks
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Rabbi Eliezer Schach, leader
of the strictly Orthodox Degel
HaTorah party, has been hitby
a fierce backlash for attacking
the kibbutz movement on
grounds that it has forsaken
religion.
The Lithuanian-born rabbi
from Bnei Brak delivered his
polemic at Degel's convention
in Tel Aviv. He claimed that
the kibbutzniks, from whom
the Labor Party draws much
of its support, are not true
Jews because they spurn reli-
gious practices.
Although they were seen as
a repudiation of Shimon Peres'
efforts to induce Degel to join
a Labor-led coalition govern-
ment, the elderly rabbi's
remarks drew angry criticism
from all over the political spec-
trum.
He was said to have wept
when told of the reaction of
Knesset member Rafael Eitan,
the former Israel Defense
Force chief of staff, who heads
the extreme right-wing Tso-
met party.
"I suggest that he visit the
military graveyards where lie
the kibbutz war dead," the
retired general said.
"Were it not for their
supreme sacrifice, Rabbi
Schach and the community he
represents would find it diffi-
cult to articulate the views he
voiced Monday."
Editorial cartoonists
in Ha'aretz and Ma'ariv inde-
pendently arrived at the same
conclusion. They depicted the
rabbi delivering his speech
amid the graves of kibbutz war
dead.
Sources close to Schach
quoted by Ma'ariv said the
rabbi did not mean to dispar-
age war heroes, even by impli-
cation. But they tried to justify
his charge that kibbutz mem-
bers aren't real Jews by noting
that Druse and Circassians do
not become Jews just because
they also serve and die in the
Israel Defense Force.
According to the Israeli
media, Peres will offer to
appoint Moda'i finance minis-
ter in his new government, an
office Moda'i held when Peres
last was prime minister in
between 1984 and 1986.
But the Labor Party leader
probably would find it impossi-
ble to guarantee safe seats for
the five Likud defectors on
Labor's election list. The
party's constitution strictly
forbids such arrangements.
Meanwhile, >Peres was
reported to be seeking legal
assurances'from Attorney
General Yosef Harish that the
Knesset can be called out of
recess should he have a new
government to present to it.
Knesset Speaker Dov Shi
lansky said he, too, would seek
legal counsel. But if there is no
clear-cut legal opinion and the
decision were to rest with him,
Shilansky said he would order
parliament to reconvene to
vote confidence in a new gov
ernment.
He explained that it was ol
overriding importance consti-
tutionally to install a new gov-
ernment as quickly as possible.
REINS OF POWER TEL AVIV Rabbi Eliezer Schach,
96-year-old Torah scholar, smiles at approval by Likud and
religion parties of his talk before 10,000. His speech dimmed labor
hopes to form a new Israel government coalition. APIWide World

Bonn May Seek
Control Of Nazi Documents
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Bonn government is discuss-
ing with Washington the possi-
bility of taking control over the
Berlin Documents Center, the
largest repository of Nazi iden-
tification cards and other docu-
ments in existence, but the
move is being fought by the
State Department and the
World Jewish Congress.
At the same time, two other
Jewish groups involved in the
search for Nazi war criminals
were more sanguine about the
matter, saying complete pho-
tocopies of original docu-
ments, and goodwill and coop-
eration by any future German
govemmnt, could ensure the
proper use of the files.
A West German delegation
visited the State Department
to discuss the prospects for
transferring the center, which
has been under American con-
trol since 1945 and is now
under the jurisdiction of the
State Department.
A reliable source on Capitol
Hill said, however, that West
Germany's campaign was
really half-hearted and had
been instigated by the Green
Party, a left-wing environmen-
tal political group that does
not represent mainstream
German government thinking.

'Return' Law
Amendment
Put Aside
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
While the problem of forming
a new government continues,
political observers are asking
appropriately on the eve of
Passover why is this govern-
ment crisis different from all
other crises?
Shimon Peres of Labor and
Yitzhak Shamir of Likud are
still courting the pivotal religi-
ous parties as ardently now as
they did after the inconclusive
1988 elections, but neither sui-
tor has been asked for a sol-
emn vow to amend the Law of
Return.
That's because the Orthodox
and ultra-Orthodox factions,
though still using their posi-
tion as power brokers between
the major parties to promote
sectarian interests, are no lon-
ger wielding "Who Is a Jew?"
as the decisive factor in any
deal.
Menachem Porush, veteran
Knesset member of the Agu-
dat Yisrael party, recently
quoted a Talmudic aphorism:
"Just'as it is a mitzvah to say
something at the right time,
so, too, is it a mitzvah to
refrain from saying it at the
wrong time."
From the relatively mode-
rate National Religious Party
to the ultra-Orthodox Agudan
and its recent offshoots, Shas
and Degel HaTorah, the mes-
sage seems to have penetrated
that "Who Is a Jew?" is a
non-starter.
That issue notwithstanding,
the religious parties have dis-
covered that their influence
over the personal lives of
Israelis particularly in the
areas of marriage and divorce
has not appreciably dimin-
ished for lack of the amend-
ment.
The entire "Who Is a Jew?"
issue revolves around the more
stringent definition of a Jew
that the Orthodox have long
wanted incorporated into the
Israeli Law of Return. They
would have the right of auto-
matic Israeli citizenship con-
ferred not upon any Jew com-
ing here, but upon those who
are born to Jewish mothers or
converted to Judaism accord-
ing to the Orthodox interpreta-
tion of Jewish law, or halacha.

Administration Delays Stand On $400 Million Loan
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The U.S. government has yet
to state publicly whether it
supports a $400 million hous-
ing loan guarantee to help
Israel resettle Soviet Jewish
immigrants, an Israeli
Embassy official said.
According to Embassy spo-
kesman Ruth Yaron, the Bush
administration is still unde-
cided.
The Embassy was comment-
ing on remarks made by
Deputy Secretary of State
Lawrence Eagleburger, before
the Senate Appropriations
Committee on Foreign Opera-
tions.
Eagleburger said the United
States is still seeking assur-
ances from Israel on "the use
of these funds."
U.S. policy forbids their use
to help anyone in the Israeli
administered territories
except the "indigenous Arab
population."
Yaron said "we don't know"
what assurances if any the
administration would seek, but
she expected to hear within a
few weeks.
The United States and Israel
have yet to discuss any specific
language or text, she said.
Israel has indicated that it
would not use the $400 million
to help build housing for Soviet
emigres in the administered
territories.

African Diplomats
Meet Orthodox Leaders
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Diplomats from seven African
countries that have full rela-
tions with Israel were greeted
warmly here by 75 members of
the Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America.
The event kicked off a Wash-
ington lobbying mission by the
O.U., the congregational arm
of the Orthodox movement.
Most of the countries Cam-
eroon, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast,
Kenya, Liberia, Togo, Zaire
have renewed relations with
Israel in the last few years,
after having severed ties fol-
lowing the 1973 Yom Kippur
War.
O.U. officials indicated that
they will try to hold similar
meetings in New York with
U.N. ambassadors of those
countries, as part of a cam-
paign to gain greater interna-
tional support for Israel.
Ambassadors who were seen
chatting with O.U. delegates
included Paul Pondi of Camer-
oon; Charles Gomis of the
Ivory Coast; Eugenia Word-
sworth-Stevenson of Liberia;
Ellom-Kodjo Schuppis of
Togo; and Mukendi Tamboa-
Kabila of Zaire. Other coun-
tries sent lower emissaries.

ing," Allison Rosenberg,
deputy assistant secretary of
state for African Affairs, said
at the reception.
Israel has "the last word on
agricultural techniques in arid
areas," and has expertise in
civil engineering, construction
and community development,
she added.
"We'pay tribute," Rosen-
berg said, "to those African
nations who have already
wisely taken those steps, and
we urge our African friends to
look at the fine example that
they set."
Richard Okwaro, counselor
at the Kenyan Embassy, said
in an interview that his coun-
try "would like Israel to do
much more" to help Kenya in
various fields.
source said that it was unre-
solved whether the $400 mil-
lion in housing loans Israel
would use within its pre-1967
borders would not free other
resources to resettle Soviet
Jews in the West Bank.
The Israeli Embassy official
observed that the United
States has not asked Israel
specifically not to use its own
funds to resettle the Soviet
Jews in the territories.
"I don't think they've put it
to us in that bold a form," the
official said.

to a bill providing emergency
aid to Panama and Nicaragua
scheduled for next month.
Meanwhile, a senior U.S.
Middle East expert said that
Jews "have the right to live in
East and West" Jerusalem.
The statement, by Daniel
Kurtzer, deputy assistant
secretary of state for Near
Eastern and South Asian
Affairs, appeared to clarify
President Bush's statement
about Jews having the right to
live in East Jerusalem "in the
context of a negotiated settle-
ment."
Members of Congress and
Jewish groups have been blast-
ing the Bush administration
for raising questions about the
settlement of Jews in East
Jerusalem, which Israel con-
siders part of its capital.
They have charged that the
United States opposes the set-
tlement of Jews in East Jeru-
salem.
But Kurtzer only criticized
those Israeli settlements in
"Judea, Samaria and Gaza,"
which he said should not be
there "until we have a negoti-
ated settlement. And it's on
this position that we have dif-
fered with the official Israeli
position for some 23 years."
Kurtzer, who was speaking
to the Union of Orthodox Jew-
ish Congregations of America,
is himself an Orthodox Jew
and a Yeshiva University gra-
duate.
"Right now, Jews are living
happily and successfully all
over the city," he said.

U.S. Senate Speaks Out
Unanimous passage by the United States
Senate of a resolution proclaiming Ameri-
can recognition of an undivided Jerusalem
has not been matched by an equally clear
statement by President Bush. Only Vice
President Quayle has made what could be
interpreted as Bush's policy, but Quayle's
comments were made in an unofficial set-
ting.
Unless the President quickly comes for-
ward, he will strengthen opponents of a
peaceful solution of the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict.
Mr. Bush should not regard the division
among Israel's political parties and the
more frequent criticism of some policies of
Prime Minister Shamir by American Jew-
ish organizations as a lack of unanimity on
the issue of Jerusalem.
No responsible Israeli official and no
mainstream American Jewish body sup-
ports the return of eastern Jerusalem to
Arab rule.
Coming on the heels of the continuing
failure of the Administration to determine
that the PLO has not renounced terrorism
as Chairman Arafat pledged, and thus to
cut off the dialogue with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, the silence of the
President is far from golden.
Columnists and commentators who have
been speculating that the Bush-Baker com-
bine is far less inclined towards objectivity
towards Israel than the Reagan-Schultz
team must be considered correct if the
President doesn't reject the Arabist tilt of
the State Department.
Pressure On Moscow Needed
Pressure by the United States on the
Soviet Union to implement its agreement
with Israel for direct flights between Mos-
cow and Tel Aviv must not let up.
With the sudden withdrawal of a Budap-
est gateway to Israel, the refusal of the
Soviet to permit direct flights by Jewish
emigrants threatens to severely slow the
exodus.
Poland's desire to replace Hungary,
though most welcome, was voiced by its
outspoken prime minister before an Ameri-
can audience. It has not yet been translated
into an actual route.
In the wake of the fate of Pan Am Flight
103, destroyed over Scotland by Palestin-
ian terrorists, countries of eastern Europe
hesitate to permit travel to Tel Aviv.
Washington should stress to both the
Soviet Union and the newly democratic
nations of Europe that their requests for
massive economic assistance require major
commitments.
Opening of air travel to and from Israel is
just such a commitment, and one which
should be made without delay.
Nearly 13,000 Jews who are waiting in
Moscow cannot be permitted to grow in
number. If these emigrants, with visas to
Israel in hand, are not quickly put on planes
to Ben-Gurion Airport, terrorism will have
won a major victory.

Netanyahu, Shomron Hit
U.S. Report On P.L.O.
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
officials are bristling over the
U.S. State Department's
report to Congress that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion has adhered to its 1988
commitment to renounce ter-
rorism.
Deputy Foreign Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu told the
Knesset that he considered the
American report a "white-
wash."
Israel Defense Force Chief
of Staff Gen. Dan Shomron
seemed to back away from his
assertion that he tended to
agree with the State Depart-
ment's appraisal.
The report was the first sub-
mitted under a law enacted
last year that requires the
State Department to update
Congress every four months
on the PLO's compliance with
its December 1988 statement
recognizing Israel and
renouncing terrorism.
That statement is the basis
for the ongoing U.S.-PLO dia-
logue, which is strongly
opposed by Israel.
Netanyahu, a Herut hard-
liner and former Israeli ambas-
sador to the United Nations,
attacked the United States.
"A great power, which is sup-
posed to be a symbol of politi-
cal honesty and international
integrity, is constructing its
policy toward the PLO on a
foundation of distortion and
mendacity," he charged.

Split Develops
In Gush Emunim
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
split has developed within the
Gush Emunim, the militant
settlement movement in the
West Bank, between its prag-
matic and more ideological
wings.
Yitzhak Armoni, who
resigned as secretary-general
over the weekend, blamed
"elements in the Gush" for
thwarting his efforts to demo-
cratize the movement.
One of his opponents has
been Rabbi Moshe Levinger,
the charismatic Gush leader
from Hebron known for his
hard-line ways.
Armoni, who came from
Ramat Magshimim, a kibbutz
in the Golan Heights, took
office last May with Levinger's
support. But they have since
drifted apart.

'Return' Law
Amendment
Put Aside
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
While the problem of forming
a new government continues,
political observers are asking
appropriately on the eve of
Passover why is this govern-
ment crisis different from all
other crises?
Shimon Peres of Labor and
Yitzhak Shamir of Likud are
still courting the pivotal religi-
ous parties as ardently now as
they did after the inconclusive
1988 elections, but neither sui-
tor has been asked for a sol-
emn vow to amend the Law of
Return.
That's because the Orthodox
and ultra-Orthodox factions,
though still using their posi-
tion as power brokers between
the major parties to promote
sectarian interests, are no lon-
ger wielding "Who Is a Jew?"
as the decisive factor in any
deal.
Menachem Porush, veteran
Knesset member of the Agu-
dat Yisrael party, recently
quoted a Talmudic aphorism:
Just as it is a mitzvah to say
something at the right time,
so, too, is it a mitzvah to
refrain from saying it at the
wrong time."
From the relatively mode-
rate National Religious Party
to the ultra-Orthodox Agudah
and its recent offshoots, Shas
and Degel HaTorah, the mes-
sage seems to have penetrated
that "Who Is a Jew?" is a
non-starter.
That issue notwithstanding,
the religious parties have dis-
covered that their influence
over the personal lives of
Israelis particularly in the
areas of marriage and divorce
has not appreciably dimin-
ished for lack of the amend-
ment.
The entire "Who Is a Jew?"
issue revolves around the more
stringent definition of a Jew
that the Orthodox have long
wanted incorporated into the
Israeli Law of Return. They
would have the right of auto-
matic Israeli citizenship con-
ferred not upon any Jew com-
ing here, but upon those who
are born to Jewish mothers or
converted to Judaism accord-
ing to the Orthodox interpreta-
tion of Jewish law, or halacha.

Leaders' Meeting With PLO Aid
Triggers Los Angeles Controversy
By TOM TUGEND
LOS ANGELES (JTA) A
secret meeting that a number
of local Jewish leaders held
with a top aide to Yasir Arafat
has set off a heated contro-
versy within the Jewish com-
munity here, followed by an
attempt to establish guidelines
for any such meetings in the
future.
The emissary was Khalid al-
Hassan, chairman of foreign
relations and parliamentary
affairs committee of the Pales-
tine National Council.
Together with Arafat, he
founded Al Fatah, the largest
and most moderate faction of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Hassan recently was
described by The New York
Times as Arafat's "trouble-
shooter" and senior adviser.
Hassan's stay in the United
States lasted several months.
During that time, the PLO
official took part in about half
a dozen meetings with Ameri-
can Jews in at least three
cities.
But aside from his meeting
in Los Angeles, only one of
Hassan's encounters with the
American Jewish establish-
ment was made public a
meeting with Henry Siegman,
executive director of the
American Jewish Congress.
A meeting scheduled to take
place in San Francisco report-
edly was canceled before it
could take place.
The Los Angeles meeting
was arranged in late January
through Stanley Sheinbaum, a
longtime peace activist who
was one of five American Jews
to meet with Arafat in Stock-
holm in December 1988.
"Hassan contacted me and
asked me if I could arrange
some meetings for him, with-
out any publicity," said Shein-
baum. "I always feel that any
discussion (with Palestinians)
is good," he added.
During Hassan's two-day
visit, he attended a reception
of about 60 people in Shein-
baum's house, then with a
smaller group of 15 at lunch
the following day.
Among those at the lunch
meeting were prominent mem-
bers of the board of directors
of the Jewish Federation
Council, including Marcia Vol-
pert and Rabbi Harvey Fields,
chairpersons respectively of
the federation's Jewish Com-
munity Relations Committee
and of its Commission on the
Middle East.
Strongest condemnations of
the meetings were leveled by
two members of the Middle
East commission, Rabbi Abra-
ham Cooper, associate dean of
the Simon Wiesenthal Center
for Holocaust Studies, and
Jonathan Mitchell.
In a letter of resignation to
the commission, Cooper
charged that "those in posi-
tions of communal trust have
violated it in pursuit of private
agendas."
Cooper had earlier threat-
ened to quit if Volpert and
Fields did not resign from the
Federation Council.
At that time, he told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
"If they (Volpert and Fields)
don't go, I'll go.
"That leaders of the second
largest Jewish community in
the world would meet with a
PLO representative is com-
pletely unacceptable," he said.
Center For Jewish Renewal
Established By UCSJ
WASHINGTON (JTA) A
U.S.-USSR Center for Jewish
Renewal will be established in
San Francisco and three cities
in the Soviet Union, in order to
offer support to independent
Jewish religious, cultural and
educational institutions,
according to Micah Naftalin,
national director of the Union
of Councils for Soviet Jews.
Naftalin's announcement
came during hearings held on
the status of Soviet Jewry by
the Commission on Security
and Cooperation in Europe,
