KING HUSSEIN MEETS WITH PLO: Jordan's King Hussein -met with a
senior Palestine Liberation Organization team to discuss his decision to cut
Jordan's ties with the Israeli-administered West Bank. From left are Hani

Israelis Disdain Posture:

Israeli political analysts
believe Abu Iyad's declaration
might be an indication that the
mainstream PLO, loyal to
Arafat, has succeeded, or
believes it can succeed, in
adopting a common formula
with the extremists, by
claiming that a basis for nego-
tiations with Israel would be
the United Nations partition
resolution of 1947.
But Israeli leaders' imme-
diate reactions were negative.
Playing With Words
The Prime Minister's Office
dismissed the report as
"playing with words." Shamir
told Israel TV that Abu Iyad's
ideas do not bring peace
closer, but rather push it away.
He said Israel would never
deal with the PLO even if it did
change its charter.
He also maintained that the
idea of a Palestinian govern-
ment in exile was not accepted
by anyone in Israel.
Shamir told Yediot Achronot
he did not believe the interna-

nize a Palestinian government-

Transfer Taboo Breakthrough
JERUSALEM (JTA) Jewish Israelis appear to
have broken through a long-held taboo by indi-
cating that they believe in the transfer of Arabs
from the Israeli-administered territories.
According to the results of a poll published in The
Jerusalem Post, 49 percent of Jewish Israeli adults
believe that transfer of the Arab population of the
Israeli-administered territories would allow the
democratic and Jewish nature of Israel to be
Of that 49 percent, nearly two out of three said
they intended to vote for the Likud party over
This most recent poll was conducted in late June
as part of a continuing survey by the Israeli
Institute of Applied Social Research and Communi-
cation Institute of the Hebrew University. The
results indicate that the subject of transferring
Arabs from the administered territories is no
longer taboo. According to a front-page article in
The Post, the word "transfer" was virtually
unmentionable until a few months ago.
The timing of the change in the willingness of
Israelis to even consider the subject of transfer
seems to run parallel with the Palestinian uprising.
The respondents were not asked directly if they
favor transfer, but "if the territories remain under
Israeli rule, what should be done to preserve the
democratic character of the state?"
Of those asked, 21 percent were in favor of
"giving rights to Arabs," 49 percent favored
causing "Arabs to leave (transfer)," 28 percent
favored the alternative to "relinquish territories,"
and three percent did not think that democratic
character was important.

Intolerable Proposition
There are some indications that the obvious
"leak" by the Israel government of a paper,
written by an American Jew with Palestinian
leanings, proposing establishment of some
kind of a Palestinian government-in-exile may
have been a mistake.
But arguing over the correctness of leaking
the document does little to help Israel present
a united front against any such Palestinian
Jordan has lessened dramatically its
commitment to supporting the residents of the
West Bank (Judea and Samaria).
Israel has stated emphatically that it will not
permit the Palestine Liberation Organization
to fill any vacuum so created.
The United States and other Western coun-
tries must be on guard against being drawn
into support of creation of a Palestinian state,
homeland or entity adjacent to pre-1967
Such an option is intolerable to the security
of Israel, and the resolution of the territorial
questions must be left for a face-to-face
negotiation on the part of the principals.
Until the PLO abandons its sworn declara-
tion of destroying all of Israel, there is no
place for negotiating with a self-proclaimed
terrorist organization.
The United States and the United Nations
should begin to apply pressure on the Arabs to
produce a Palestinian delegation able and
willing to enter direct negotiations, or even an
international conference called to secure such
direct negotiations.
Israel, at the same time, must not present to
the world any position which negates its
historic desire to discuss peace with the Arabs
any time, any place, and with no pre-
Appropriate Representation
Israel's Ambassador to the United States
correctly has informed the Reverend Jesse
Jackson that discussions of the Israeli-
Palestinian dispute are the province of govern-
ments, and not individual citizens, no matter
how well they might be motivated.
Ambassador Arad, representing a coalition
government with widely divergent views,
seems ready and able to continue the tradition
of a single voice for Israel.
With elections scheduled for this fall both in
the United States and Israel, the new envoy
has his work cut out for him.

The Case Against the Red Cross
Israel's equivalent of the
Red Cross organization, the
Magen David Adorn (MDA)
Society, is the only such body
that does not belong to the
International Movement of the
Red Cross because of a dispute
over symbols.
The International Red
Cross, a well-known humani-
tarian organzation which
provides assistance to victims
of conflict and disaster, is
easily recognized by its red
cross symbol. Red Cross offi-
cials maintain that the symbol
is the Swiss flag reversed and
has no religious significance.
Founded 125 years ago in
Switzerland, the organization
has tried to avoid politics. Yet
in not recognizing MDA, it
appears that the International
Red Cross is taking a political
Officially, Israel has not
asked for recognition from the
International Committee of
the Red Cross (ICRC) since
1949, when its proposal was
defeated by one vote at the
Geneva Convention. The MDA
qualifies in nine of the 10
stipulations but it refuses to
accept one condition
adopting one of the three
recognized ICRC symbols; the
red cross, the red crescent, or
the red lion and sun (created
especially for Iran when the
Shah was in power but no
longer used). The MDA uses a
red Star of David, insisting
that the use of the Christian
cross or the Moslem crescent
would offend Jews.
Originally only the red cross
emblem was used. When
Turkey and Iran refused to
join the organization unless
they could use Moslem
symbols, the ICRC agreed.
"There is a clear precedent
for having more than one
symbol," commented Sherman
L. Cohn, Georgetown Univer-
sity Law Center professor and
former president of the Amer-
ican section of the Interna-
tional Federation of Jewish
Lawyers and Jurists. "There is
no rational, logical reason for
not allowing the red Magen
David," he said.
In 1986 the ICRC officially
adopted the name Interna-
tional Movement of the Red
Cross and Red Crescent.
Although the organization
claims it is non-religious, its
name implies religious affilia-
tion. And, if the red cross
symbol is neutral and non-
religious, why did not Moslem
countries adopt it, asks Elan
Steinberg, executive director
of the World Jewish Congress.
"Israel is being asked to do
something (adopt the red cross
emblem) that other countries
are not being asked to do,"
Steinberg commented. "The
effort to recognize the MDA
has been blackballed by the
Arab countries."
According to Jose Aponte,
director of the International
Services of the American Red
Cross, the International Red
Cross Council is "tied" to the
Geneva Conventions. "The
governments who ratify the
Geneva Conventions have to
agree to the fourth symbol,"
he said. This means that more
than 150 countries including
the entire Middle East must
agree that Israel can use the
Star of David. 'It's extremely
unfortunate that that's the
way it is," Aponte commented.
The American Red Cross
officially recognizes the ADM
and the two "maintain very
friendly relations."

Jews, overall, are still more
liberal than any other group in
America except blacks; there-
fore, I said that I expected
Jews to return to their tradi-
tional support for the Demo-
cratic Party and that Michael
Dukakis should get a minimum
of 70 percent of the Jewish
vote, despite the fact that
George Bush has a very good
record on Middle East policy.
Dukakis has certainly been
saying the right things with
regard to Israel, but there is
evidence that when it comes to
policy-making, Democratic
presidents have tended to take
Israel's supporters (which
includes many non-Jews) for
In a study of over 600 Middle

Although Jews comprise less
than one percent of the Repub-
lican Party, compared to over
five percent of the Democrats,
Republican candidates still
have an incentive to court
Jewish voters because it may
make a difference whether
they lose the Jewish vote by a
3-2 or 3-1 margin.
For example, if only one in
nine of the New York Jews
who voted for Carter had
voted for Ford, Carter would
have lost New York and the
presidency. Jews not only vote
in disproportionate numbers,
but they also contribute time
and money, which makes them
valuable participants in

Qatar Seeks
Soviet Ties
PARIS (JTA) Said to be

sophisticated missiles, the oil-
rich nation of Qatar has estab-
lished diplomatic relations
with the Soviet Union.
The formal agreement was
signed at the Persian Gulf
nation's embassy in Paris by
Ambassador Abdel Rahman
Hannad Alatyia and the Soviet
charge d'affaires, Oleg
Krigonogov, according to an
embassy spokesman.
Arab sources said the move
was prompted by the refusal of
the United States to sell Qatar
Stinger missiles of the type
sold to Bahrain, Kutwait and
Saudi Arabia.
The State Department criti-
cized Qatar and threatened it
with economic sanctions for its
recent acquisition of 13 U.S.-
made Stinger missiles in viola-
tion of U.S. law.
According to sources in
Washington, the Stingers
were part of a CIA shipment of
20 missiles seized and distri-
buted by opposition groups in

Soviet Union is expected to

it wants. No details were avail-
Of Arab nations, only
Bahrain and Saudi Arabia
have so far failed to establish
diplomatic relations with
Oman and set up an embassy
in Muscat, that nation's
capital. Kuwait and the United
Arab Emirates have had diplo-
matic relations with the Soviet
Union for some time.

Britain, have expressed their

ences between the candidates,
there is no reason to expect
either George Bush or Michael
Dukakis to be any different.
Thus, a key determinant of
U.S. Middle East policy will be
the composition of the
Congress. The president's
position is the most important
determinant of foreign policy,
but my study also found that in
more than one-fourth of the
decisions made in the 1945-84
period, a pro-Israel position
was adopted over the objection
of the president.
When a decision is made in
Congress, where support for
Israel has grown increasingly
strong, presidents adopt a pro-
Israel position well over half
the time.
Even when the president
took what might be considered
an anti-Israel position, the
Congress overruled him in 55
percent of the cases that
required its approval.
There will undoubtedly be
occasions when the president,
Bush or Dukakis, makes deci-
sions that are perceived to be
anti-Israel. The best insurance
against those policies being
adopted is the election of a
pro-Israel Congress.

Dukakis Call for Soviet Jews
Marking the 36th anniversary of the Stalinist liquidation
of 24 Soviet Jewish poets and cultural leaders, Gov.
Michael Dukakis, Democratic candidate for president,
called upon the present Soviet leadership to "lift all
barriers to Jewish cultural and religious expressions, and
to open wide the doors of emigration to those who wish to
depart the Soviet Union."
He made the demand through Hyman Bookbinder, his
special adviser and former Washington Representative of
the American Jewish Committee, at a rally on the steps of
the New York City Hall organized by the Workmen's Circle
and leading Jewish publications and cultural institutions.
