Shamir Concessions
Lead To Peres Move
TEL A VIV Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, left, and
Trade Minister Ariel Sharon are all smiles following their
compromise at the heated Likud block Central Committee
meeting. Shamir agreed to demands of his right-wing rivals
within Likud, placing four restrictions on plans for
elections among Palestinians in the Israeli-administered
territories. (APIWide World Photo)
Coalition Totters
JERUSALEM Finance Minister Shimon Peres, leader of
Israel's Labor Party, is assisted by police after angry
mourners at a funeral heckled him, threw stones and forced
him to leave. The rite was for one of the 12 Israelis among
the U killed when a Palestinian forced a bus off the Tel
Aviv Jerusalem highway. Peres reacted to Shamir's com-
promise two days later and called on Labor to withdraw
from the current coalition government, and asked for new
elections. (APIWide World Photo)
Begin Joins In
Asking Restraint
mer Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin emerged from sec-
lusion this week to add his
voice to those of current
Israeli leaders condemning the
random violence against Arabs
that has broken out since the
July 6 bus disaster that
claimed 14 lives and injured
Begin, 75, has been a virtual
recluse since his surprise
resignation in 1983. Although
sought out constantly by the
media, he rarely makes public
But the former leader of
Likud and its hard-line Herut
faction told Israel Television
that while the "abhorrent
crime" shocked every Israeli,
violent reactions will only dee-
pen the hatred between Jews
and Arabs.
Begin did not appear on the
screen. His statement was
read by his spokesman and
confidant, Yehiel Kadishai.
President Chaim Herzog
issued a similar appeal for
restraint when he spoke Sun-
day at the funeral of Moshe
Kol, a former Cabinet minister
and one of the signers of
Israel's Declaration of Inde-
pendence. Kol died Saturday
at the age of 87.
Likud, Labor Votes
Peril Government
Labor Party leadership seems
determined to end its coalition
partnership with Likud, which
it accuses of wrecking the
peace process on which the
government had embarked.
The party's Executive voted
41-2 for a resolution recom-
mending that Labor leave the
unity government it formed
with Likud in December 1988.
The resolution will be sub-
mitted for approval to Labor's
Central Committee, which is
expected to convene in less
than three weeks.
The resolution charges that
Likud "profoundly damaged
the peace initiative" by bur-
dening it with restrictions and
preconditions at the Likud
Central Committee meeting in
Tel Aviv recently.
It specifically blames Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the
Likud leader, for agreeing to
attach four guiding principles
to his peace plan likely to make
it completely unacceptable to
the Palestinians.
The principles were
demanded by three hard-line
Likud ministers, Ariel Sharon,
David Levy and Yitzhak
Moda'i, who made no secret of
their desire to kill the plan
Labor's resolution was intro-
duced by Vice Premier Shimon
Peres, the party's chairman,
with the support of Labor's
No. 2 man, Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin.
Rabin reportedly had been
leaning against leaving the
government. But his speech to
the Executive Monday left lit-
tle room for the party to adopt
any other course.
Yet, as observers noted,
three weeks is a long time in
Israeli politics. There are both
external and internal factors
that could prevent or delay a
breakup of the uneasy Labor-
Likud alliance.
The United States, which
had endorsed the peace plan
before it was amended, inter-
vened dramatically Sunday
The Bush administration
informed Jerusalem that a
high-level State Department
delegation will visit Israel next
week. Its sole purpose will be
to examine the viability of the
peace initiative in light of the
conditions imposed on it by
The American move on the
eve of the Labor leadership
meeting may have sidetracked
an even stronger resolution
blasting Likud.
The Americans apparently
made it known to both Israeli
political parties that they
would feel offended if the unity
government collapsed before
the State Department team
arrived in Jerusalem.
There also reportedly has
been intense pressure on
Labor's leadership from Amer-
ican Jewish leaders, who cau-
tioned the party not to make a
hasty exit from the govern-
Finally, there is the current
political climate in Israel,
which does not seem to favor
Labor's chances at the polls
should the government col-
lapse and new elections are
Nevertheless, both Peres
and Rabin, in speeches to the
party Executive and Labor
Knesset faction this week, ins-
isted that the basis for a con-
tinued partnership with Likud
has been smashed and the only
course for Labor is to end it.
Shamir warned Labor on
Sunday that to end the present
government would kill all hope
for progress in the peace initia-
tive. He also maintained that
in new elections, Likud would
"ire much better than Labor.
Eagleburger Heads
U.S. Mission To Israel
Bush administration plans to send
some of the State Department's
top guns to Israel next week in the
hope of resuscitating the deterior-
ating prospects for Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's peace
Reports from Israel said
the U.S. delegation would be
headed by Deputy Secretary of
State Lawrence Eagleburger and
would include Dennis Ross, direc-
tor of the State Department's pol-
icy-planning staff, and John Kelly,
assistant secretary cif state for
Near Eastern and South Asian
But State Department deputy
spokesman Richard Boucher said
that, while Eagleburger may head
t he I '.S. delegation, there has hern
no final decision yet.
Secretary of State James Baker,
at a news conference in Warsaw,
also said he is sending "someone"
to Israel to clarify Israel's position
on the proposed Palestinian elec-
tions in the West Bank and Ga/.a
Baker said that Shamir's deci-
sion, under pressure from his
Likud bloc, to put tough new condi-
tions on the elections plan "give
rise in our minds to the question
alKHit the seriousness of purpose"
of the Israeli government.
Clarification is needed "if we are
to continue to support" the plan,
he said.
The United States has l>een try-
ing to sell the Israeli proposal to
the Palestinians. But it has indi-
cated that this will be an impossi-
ble task if Shamir seeks to impose
the conditions he accepted at a
Likud Central Committee meet-
They are that Israel will never
give up any territory, that Jewish
settlement in the territories will
continue, that Arab residents of
Bant Jerusalem will not Ik* allowed

Muddies Waters
The United States Supreme Court decisions
which have again barred depictions of the
Nativity a purely Christian symbol from
public property, but have permitted public
display of a Hanukkah Menorah, along with
other "balancing" religious items, seem to fall
within the mainstream of American thinking.
Separation of church and state clearly calls
for prohibiting crosses on courthouses.
But permitting Christmas trees on the
White House lawn as part of a so-called
national holiday is balanced, in the opinion of a
Supreme Court majority, with allowing the
Menorah to represent the important role
which Judaism and Jewry have in the United
Purists can argue with authority that nei-
ther Christmas tree nor Menorah belongs at
City Hall.
But the sectarian aspect of the winter
holidays cannot be so easily denied. Santa
Claus may not come to Jewish homes, but his
presence is everywhere.
The Menorah denotes the joyous nature of
Hanukkah. It is far better than a "Hanukkah
bush," if we must have the Christmas tree.
But one wonders whether this Menorah ruling
may lead to the Court's sanction of Christmas
carols in public schools, somewhat balanced by
Hanukkah melodies.
Of even more concern is the mounting effort
to "return" prayer to the public school. That is
a front on which all Jews should unite to
oppose with all our resolve and resources.
Frivolous Flagwaving
It is a demonstration of the respect that
citizens have for the solemnity and integrity of
the United States Constitution that mandates
against a hasty action to amend it.
President George Bush and others seeking
support for a constitutional amendment which
would ban flag-burning are making light of the
integrity of the Bill of Rights.
A greatness of the Constitution and its first
10 amendments is that it translates an idea
into reality. The protections offered to its
citizens make real an amorphous concept, one
which is copied worldwide by nations and
peoples seeking the ultimate freedom
accorded Americans.
The fabric of the flag burned is not the
desecration. The ultimate insult would be to
make a mockery of the privileges assured
citizens in their natural rights to freedom of
speech and expression.
While deploring the burning of our nation's
symbol, we must remember that an even more
important part of America gives the right of
dissent to those with whom we most passion-
ately disagree.

Convent; No Vatican/Jewish Conflict
It is a positive thing that the
meeting of the World Jewish
Congress Executive in Mon-
treal during early May adopted
a resolution abandoning an
earlier pronouncement of its
American Section calling for a
worldwide Jewish boycott of
Pope John Paul II.
While this latest action may
in time help ease the mounting
tensions in Vatican-Jewish
relations the worst I have
seen during the past 30 years
much damage has been
done, and it will take consider-
able knowledge, experience
and wisdom to correct the pre-
sent troubled situation.
The core of the problem
remains the presence of the
Carmelite convent on the
grounds of Auschwitz.
The pious, determined nuns
created the problem by their
unilateral transforming of a
Nazi warehouse used for stor-
ing Zyklon-B gas into a con-
vent. But some Jews, I believe,
have misconstrued the stub-
born Carmelite issue.
The removal of the convent
to other quarters which has
been agreed upon by all parties
is overwhelmingly an issue
that, concerns the Polish
Catholic Church, the Polish
government, the Carmelite
Order and world Jewry.
By church law and discipline,
only the Polish church has the
power to remove the convent,
which is under its jursidiction.
The pope and the Vatican have
much influence, but not the
decision-making power, and
there is a basic difference
between power and influence.
Last week, Cardinal Jan Wil-
lebrands, Vatican head of
Catholic-Jewish relations, at a
meeting with several of us,
confirmed that the Polish
Catholic church possesses deci-
sive authority to move the Car-
melite convent to a new cen-
He said the Vatican and he
personally can and will help in
the transfer, but only in the
It is a weird irony that most
Roman Catholics have a lim-
ited perception of papal infal-
libility (only in "Faith and
Morals"), but some Jews in
their naivete believe that the
pope is infallible in everything
in the Catholic's world.
All he has to do is snap his
fingers, and the convent and
the nuns would disappear. If it
has not disappeared yet, obvi-
ously the pope does not want it
to, therefore, boycott the
Well, the Vatican also knows
how to play the boycott game.
My intuition tells me I don't
yet have hard evidence to con-
firm it that when the Vati-
can and the Anti-Defamation
League canceled their sched-
uled meeting in early May, the
first time to my knowledge
that has happened with a Jew-
ish group in 30 years since
Vatican Council II, the Vatican
was signaling that it does not
like this boycott trifling with
its Holy Father. 11' it continues,
I'm afraid there will be further
Meanwhile, the issue
remains as it was at the begin-
ning. The convent, which dis-
torts the meaning of Aus-
chwitz to the Jewish people,
must be removed to an interim
place until the new center and
convent which the pope
committed himself to support
in Vienna in June 1988 are
That is the issue that must
be negotiated directly, wisely
and with calm effectiveness by
world Jewry, the Polish
Catholic authorities and the
Polish government.

Around the turn of the cen-
tury, when most immigrants
from Europe could choose as
their destination between
Palestine and America, the
former (a Turkish province)
offered little temptation, but
the latter, described as a "Gol-
dene Land", beckoned to the
hordes of our people. Before
long, however, the United
States proved to be a "Treife
Medina" as far as Jewish stan-
dards of living were conc-
erned, wan a long progression
of more and more compro-
mises with religious obser-
vances and diluted Jewish val-
ues. Ultimately, however, the
immigrants did acquire a
measure of affluence.
Now, a comparable situation
has developed with hopes for
the opening of the gates from
Soviet Russia and impending
freedom being offered to Rus-
sian Jews with a similar choice
although the picture of the
Holy land and that of the
United States are vastly
Should our Russian brothers
decide to follow in the foot-
steps of our forebears? Should
we advise them to do so?
Israel offers the Russian
immigrants the great satisfac-
tion of resettling among their
brethren where they can
renew and intensify their
attachment to our ancient
faith under a Jewish govern-
ment, free to raise their fami-
lies in a wholesome and elevat-
ing Jewish environment, rest-
ing on the Sabbath and
respecting tradition.
Surprisingly, two prominent
local rabbis have taken dissimi-
lar positions on the pressing
question of Where should the
Russian Jews go? Rabbi Barry
Konovitch of the Temple Beth
Samuel considers the problem
from a historic perspective
and, with characteristic fore-
sight, depicts Israel as far
more desirable than any other
destination from both a religi-
ous and secular viewpoint. He
urges aid and encouragement
to Israeli immigrants resisting
alienating influences.

Jerusalem From Inside
A Garrison
Remnants of a Roman flight
of stairs uncovered recently in
the moat outside David's
Tower in Jerusalem indicate
that King Herod's Palace was
probably at that site. Until
then, little evidence had been
found to substantiate Jose-
phus' contemporary account.
That stairway will soon be
incorporated into the capital's
new museum of the history of
Jerusalem at the David's
Tower-Citadel complex, adja-
cent to the Old City's Jaffa
Opened in April, the
museum spans 3,000 years of
Jerusalem's history, dating
back from the earliest refer-
ence to the Canaanite
"ursalim" on the 14th century
BCE Tel el-Amarna tablet.
Each period of the city's
story is housed in a separate
room the medieval halls of
the Ottoman Garrison at the
Citadel. And through the well-
written concise texts and ea-
sily visible time charts, the
visitor gets a clear feeling of
the chronological sequence of
Jerusalem's builders and inva-
ders, expulsions and returns.
In fact, clarity is the cat-
chword for the museum's mul-
timedia exhibits planned by a
team headed by James Gard-
ner, designer of the Diaspora
Museum at Tel Aviv Univer-
There are dioramas and
videos, a hologram, life-sized
models and tiny replicas but
almost no authentic material.
Jerusalem's Israel and Roths-
child museums are bursting
with archeological artifacts,
whereas this museum aims to
show life as it was during each
stage of the city's develop-
The clothes and weapons of
the tiny figures in the diorama
of Sennacherib's abortive
siege of Jerusalem in the
seventh century BCE were
painstakingly based on Assyr-
ian reliefs of the period, while
the diorama of the grand Hero-
dian stairway leading to the
Second Temple closely follows
Professor Binyamin Mazar's
excavations made after the
1967 war.
There is something for every
visitor to this museum from
schoolchildren who delight in
the vivid dioramas, to tourists
unfamiliar with the city's his-
tory. Even history buffs can
learn from the details of the
models and maps.
Some of the exhibits employ
clever visual tricks to illustrate
the city's complicated history.
A model of a Moslem seminary
is transformed into a crusader
convent and back again as two
demure nuns slide onstage
replacing a groups of students
of Islam, while the crescent
moon over the building
changes into a cross.
The central feature in the
early Islamic room, situated in
the Ottoman mosque whose
minaret graces the Old City's
skyline, is a model of the gol-
den-domed Dome of the Rock
as it was when it was built in
the seventh century.
Moslem visitors are sur-
prised to see that the walls
were originally covered in gold
and green mosaics. Today's
blue tiles were only affixed in
the sixteenth century.
The full two-hour tour of the
museum, accompanied if one
wants by a dramatic taped
guide, takes in the exhibition
halls, a climb to the top of
Herod's Phasael Tower for a
spectacular view over the Old
City, and a walk along the
Citadel's crenelated walls.
The visitor can also wander
through the archeological
remains within the beautifully
landscaped Citadel grounds to
see remnants of Jerusalem's
Hasmonean Walls. :i niche of
stone cannon balls and
remains of Herodian and
Byzantine buildings.
The museum was financed
by a $10.5 million dollar grant
from Vivien Duffield-Clore of
the Clore Foundation, who
brought together experts from
Britain and Israel to tell the
story of Jerusalem.

says that aid should not be
dispensed with reference to
either alternative destination
but that each immigrant be
allowed freedom of choice.
Any wavering Russian Jew
should consider these two per-
tinent facts: that in the course
of the last two or three genera-
tions, the number of American
Jews who have been affiliated
with synagogues has fallen by
50 percent, and that a growing
number of deluded American
Jews, dissatisfied with Ameri-
can mores and with America's
diluted Jewish values, are now
going on aliyot to Israel.
Israel, with open arms,
needs the Russian Jews; and
the Russian Jews, torn Irom
their old Jewish roots and feel-
ing privileged to participate in
the divinely foretold return,
need Israel for themselves,
their immediate families and
their succeeding generations

The new conditions are also
opposed by Israel's Labor
Party, whose leaders voted to
recommend that the party
withdraw from the govern-
ment coalition with Likud.
The United States does not
"get involved in Israeli polit-
ics," Boucher said when asked
about the Labor move.
But the U.S. delegation is
expected to press Shamir to
restate his original peace pro-
posal, in the hope that might
prevent a Labor walkout.

Israel's Reach Into Space
(WZPS) The 100 fuming
volcanoes on Io, the innermost
of Jupiter's larger moons, are
one of the phenomena which
excite Professor
Yuval Ne'eman, the founder of
Israel's Space Agency, when
he thinks about outer space.
He also feels a touch of pride,
because Tel Aviv University
scientists using their 40" tele-
scope were, in 1974, the first
to report evidence of volcanic
activity there in the form of
clouds of sulphur and sodium
in Io's trajectory. This disco-
very was confirmed in 1979 by
the high-resolution photo-
graphs radioed back by Voy-
ager II as it flew past Jupiter.
This and other space studies
were being carried out long
before Israel launched its
space satellite Ofek-1 (Hori-
zon-1) on September 19, 1988
and even before the Israel
Space Agency was established
in 1983. While the satellite
provided a sensation in the
world's newspapers for a short
time, and brought Israel's
scientific and technical capabil-
ities to general notice, this was
not its aim. The launch was
designed to demonstrate to
Israel's space research com-
munity and its citizens that the
country's industry had the
capacity to orbit a satellite
and, in addition, to check its
functioning in a space environ-
It also provided Israel with
an entrance ticket to the inter-
national space club (Israel is
the eighth member after the
U.S., the U.S.S.R., France,
Britain, India, China and
Japan) and was a marvelous
40th birthday present from
Israel's engineers and scien-
tists to their country.
Ofek-1 was an experimental
satellite, the first of a series,
and, like any other prototype
machine, its whole purpose
was to show that it can work
and provide data about itself
and its subsystems. It re-
entered the atmosphere and
was burnt up on Saturday,
January 14, 1989, four months
after it was launched.
The next Israeli satellite,
Ofek-2, to be dispatched in
about two years, will contain
additional equipment and will
carry a major experiment.
No less important than the
satellite itself was the rocket
missile that was used to put it
into orbit. This was part of a
system especially developed
for satellite launching. The
missile had to be very strong
to get the satellite into space
Holocaust Freight
Car Sent To U.S.
BALTIMORE A railroad
freight car used to transport
thousands of Jews to a Nazi
killing center in Poland in
1942-43 has been donated to
the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum by the Pol-
ish Government. The freight
car, one of a handful of its kind
surviving, arrived at the Port
of Baltimore.
The train car was used to
transport Jews from Warsaw
to the killing center of Treb-
linka where more than 750,000
Jews were gassed to death

and it had to have superb
navigational systems to place
it exactly in orbit. Its success
stunned the world, and the
capacity to produce such
sophisticated missiles is worry-
ing military establishments
outside Israel. However, this
military capacity is a spin-off
and not the main objective.
Israel is developing the various
aspects of its space research
and activity in order to aid
Israel's economy and develop
human potencial.
Indeed, there are already
plans afoot to send up a com-
mercial satellite by 1992. An
Israeli company registered in
London, General Satellite Cor-
poration, is intending to
develop, produce and put into
orbit a communications satel-
lite to be called Amos-1. This
will be a geostationary satel-
lite to be located 36,000km.
above Zaire, which was the
place in space that was allo-
cated to Israel by the Interna-
tional Telecommunications
The company has begun
practical activity and is
already selling satellite trans-
ponders. As plans stand today,
the satellite will be placed in
position by a French Arianne
space missile, to be launched
from a small island off the
coast of French Guinea. Once
:n place, it will utilize a wave-
length assigned by the ITU to
greatly improve telephone
communication (as well as
telex, facsimile and television
transmissions) within Israel
and international communica-
tions, and will free Israel from
its dependence upon communi-
cations channels rented from
While up to now Israel's
space activity has been of a
modest nature, the launching
of its first satellite signifies a
literal jump into space for
Israel, and further satellites
will confirm this demonstrated
ability. As part of this effort,
the Israel Aircraft Industries
is also reaching for the sky and
endeavoring to develop and to
profit from an entirely new
product, a modular satellite.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Tor ah Portion
. ."And he took Joshua before Eleazar the congregation.
And he laid his hands upon him"
(Num. t7-tt-t3)
PHINEHAS "And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying:
"Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaroon the priest, hath
turned My wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was
very jealous for My sake among them, so that I consumed not the
childen of Israel in My jealousy. Wherefore say: Behold, I give
unto him My covenant of peace; and it shall be unto him, and to his
seed after him, the covenant of an everlasting priesthood' "
(Numbers 5.10-13). The children of Israel were commanded to do
battle with the Midianites. Moses was instructed to give the
daughters of Zelophehad the inheritance of their father, who had
died without sons. Moses ordained Joshua as his successor. The
portion concludes with a description of the observance of the
various holy days.
