Violence Spills Into Jerusalem
More Arabs were killed in the
West Bank as riots flared
throughout the territory,
where about 170,000 Palesti-
nians are living under tight
curfew. Latest casualties
brought the number of deaths
in nine weeks of disturbances
to more than 50.
Violence spilled over into
Jerusalem, including Jewish
neighborhoods, and for the se-
cond time in less than a month,
police were forced to clamp a
curfew within the environs of
the capital.
Unrest has continued almost
unabated for nearly two mon-
ths. Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, briefing the Cabinet,
left the distinct impression
that no end is in sight, accor-
ding to government sources.
Even as the ministers
debated the situation,
residents of Beit-Umar village
on the Jerusalem-Hebron road
were clashing with Israel
Defense Force units sent there
to dismantle roadblocks and
break up a riot.
The residents, exhorted over
the public address system at
the local mosque to take to the
streets, confronted Israeli
soldiers with rocks and bottles.
Rubber bullets, tear gas and
finally live ammunition were
The IDF reported three
residents killed and several
wounded. A curfew was impos-
ed on the village. Curfews also
were in effect in Nablus,
Tulkarm and a number of
refugee camps.

Diplomatic Attempts
Break Ground Rules
Israeli Dov Kalmanovitck, of Beit-El, was
brought to Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital
suffering from serious multiple burns after
his car was firebombed outside the Arab
village ofAl-Bireh in the continuing unrest in
the administered territories.
Richard Murphy, U.S. assis-
tant secretary of state for
Near Eastern and South Asian
affairs, was scheduled to con-
fer with leaders on the latest
U.S. peace initiative for the
Middle East.
He was to visit Israel, Saudi
Arabia and Syria, despite
State Department sanctions
against high-ranking U.S. of-
ficials engaging in contacts
with the Syrian government.
The State Department im-
posed the sanctions in
November 1986, when the
United States withdrew its
ambassador to Syria due to
Syria's complicity in interna-
tional terrorist incidents. For
the same reason, the United
States and Libya no longer ex-
change ambassadors.
Murphy is not the first U.S.
official to bypass the sanc-
tions. A State Department
source explained that the sane-

Candidates Postulate
On Jewish Agenda
NEW YORK OTA) Presidential candidates from both major parties all
support a continued strong U.S.-Israel alliance, but differ on how to advance the
Arab-Israel peace process as well as on church-state issues, according to their
responses to a questionnaire distributed by the American Jewish Committee.
Their short essay answers to 14 questions on their positions on issues tradi-
^"S ^?ad? Portnt to *** Jewish community are compiled in the
booklet "Presidential Elections '88: The Candidates on the Iasues.'r
The questionnaire was sent in September to all announced candidates for the
presidential nominations of Democratic and Republican parties and was
answered by all of them except for former Sen. Gary Hart (iXColo.) who was
not then a candidate.
Two broad trends emerged from the candidates' responses:

United States and Israel, candidates are most in accord when supporting the
right of Soviet Jews to emigrate. They differ, however, on the extent to which
arms pacts and economic agreements between the United States and Soviet
Union should be linked to Soviet human rights policies.
Opinion divides essentially along party lines on church-state, civil rights and
economic issues.
Democrats support enactment of the Civil Rights Restoration Act, which
would prohibit discrimination in federally funded programs, and the Equal
Rights Amendment for women. The Democrats also oppose constitutional

U.S. Plan for
JERUSALEM (JTA) The United States wants the
Israel Defense Force to withdraw from the main population
centers of the West Bank and Gaza Strip this spring, to be
followed by Palestinian elections early in summer, inform-
ed sources said here.
The sources confirmed in outline proposals that have
been leaked from the highest American political echelons.
They are expected to be presented to Israeli officials by
Richard Murphy, assistant secretary of state for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs.
Under the plan, the IDF would withdraw from major
cities in the West Bank and Gasa Strip by the beginning of
summer, at the latest Soon after, Israel, Jordan and Egypt
would jointly monitor local Palestinian elections in the
Once the local elections have taken place, Secretary of
State George ShuHx would visit the region personally to set
the stage for a new round of shuttle diplomacy.

Israel next November, Washington envisions convening an
international forum in December to hunch negotiations
between Israel and Jordan, with Palestinian participation,
to decide the permanent status of the West Bank and Gaza

night of rioting in the Gaza
Strip left two Palestinian
youths wounded from Israel
Defense Force rifle fire one of
them in the city of Gaza and
the other in Kahn Yunis.
Eighteen Palestinians were
treated at local hospitals for
beatings at the hands of IDF
troops. A curfew was imposed
on the Shati refugee camp,
which Premier Yitzhak Shamir
visited during a lull in the
East Jerusalem was relative-
ly calm after a day of fierce
rioting. Police used tear gas to
disperse dozens of rock-
throwing youths near the
Herod's Gate entrance to the
Old City.
Two Jewish youths were in-
jured by rocks while walking in
the Old City. Police detained
18 Arab suspects.
Meanwhile, the commercial
strike continued in East
The curfew imposed on the
Shuafat refugee camp in
Jerusalem after rioting there
remained in force. But
residents were allowed to
leave their homes for two
hours to shop for food.
Shuafat is the second site
within the Jerusalem
municipality ever to be placed
under curfew.
Much of the West Bank was
under tight curfew, including
Nablus, Tulkarm, kalkilya,
Anabta and Beit Umar, where
three Palestinian rioters were
killed. Refugee camps in the
Nablus and Ramallah areas
also remained under curfew.
Violent outbursts were
reported from several
localities in the territory, but
by and large the West Bank
was quiet, though tension ran
high. A general strike was call-
ed to mark the 60th day since
the current wave of distur-
bances began in early
Many Arab workers did not
report to their jobs in Israel.
Public transportation was ir-
regular throughout the ter-
ritory. Arab municipal govern-
ments, one of the few symbols
of self-rule, seemed about to
fall apart.
Members of the town coun-
cils of Ramallah and El-Bireh
announced their resignations.
Earlier, three members of the
Nablus city council resigned.
Observers say it is a matter of
time before Arab mayors and
other council members suc-
cumb to Palestinian nationalist
pressure to quit.
Most West Bank mayors
were appointed to office by the
Israeli authorities. There has
not been an election in the ter-
ritories since 1976.
Meanwhile Premier Shamir
took sharp issue with Gen. Dan
Shomron, the IDF chief of
staff, who told the Cabinet
that reprisals by Jewish set-
tlers in the West Bank were
escalating the violence.

Orthodox Defections No Fault of Reform
Orthodox Jewish leaders
wrongfully blame Reform
Jewry for defections from the
Orthodox movement, a leading
Reform scholar contends,
leading to "shaken" unity in
organizations that strive for
cooperation among the three
major branches of Judaism.
Rabbi Solomon Freehof a
past president of the Central
Conference of American Rab-
bis (CCAR), the association of
Reform rabbis, offered his
analysis and a plea for peace in
an article in a recent Journal
of Reform Judaism.
Freehof, considered the
leading Reform authority on
Jewish law, suggested that it
was probable''that basic to the
quarreling of today is a
misconception of the true
nature of the various groups in
Reform Jewish life."
He contended it was not
theology, but rather sociology
that led descendants of Or-
thodox immigrants to change
their Jewish practice.
Freehof s sense of Orthodox
discomfort with Reform is
shared by Dr. Norman Lamm,
president of Yeshiva Universi-
ty, an Orthodox Jewish institu-
tion at whose Chanukah dinner
Lamm offered his remarks.
Lamm called the "polariza-
tion" of the Jewish religious
community "one of the most
pressing and distressing pro-
blems, adding that "where
brothers cannot speak in
skalom to each other, only
disaster can follow."
He declared he had no pa-
tience for such "catch words"
as "unity" or even "pluralism"
when they're "empty of the
overarching ideals of Judaism
or which require of all sides to
sacrifice their integrity on the
altar of good fellowship."
But, he added, he had "even
less patience with a call to
arms on behalf of principle
with no concern for communal
peace, no respect for those of
differing opinion (and) no sen-
sitivity to Judaism's stress on
the wholeness of our people.
Without wholeness, there can
be no holiness."
Freehof cited the histories of
two European Jewish families
who continued their Orthodox-
centered lives after coming to
the United States, but whose
children and grandchildren
ceased gradually to follow such
He asserted that descen-
dants of the original settlers
moved to different parts of the
county over the years, "some
to small, others to pioneer,
districts. It was this
geographical fact that was
He said it was axiomatic that
Orthodoxy "needs a special en-
vironment" in which
"inherited Orthodoxy is
natural and easy." In such an
environment, "the restaurants
are all kosher. Employers
always give freedom for Sab-
bath rest."
On the other hand, Freehof
declared, for Jews who moved
to places "where kosher food
was not always available,
where Sabbath rest in employ-
ment was almost impossible to
find," Orthodoxy "simply fad-
ed away."
In this development, he con-
tended, "there was no
debating the question; there
were no polemics, no
rebellion." It was not liberal
Judaism which caused this
change in Jewish life, he con-
tended, but rather a reaction
to the environment.
Freehof rejected charges
that Reform Judaism is
abolishing Jewish tradition.
"The Jewish people have
themselves abolished it," he
argued. "Whenever Jews and
non-Jews live side by side ir a
free American environment,
the old Jewish enactments
naturally drop away, having
ceased to be easily or naturally
He stressed that Orthodoxy
"can indeed, as it does,
flourish in America, but only in
a Jewish environment."
Emphasizing that Reform
Judaism "is not the enemy of
the Jewish past," he declared
that "wherever Jews live in
close Jewish neighborhoods
and have the natural Jewish
(Orthodox) life, Reform does
not consider them to be
anachronistic; it respects
Accordingly, the Reform
scholar declared, "it is for
Jewish Orthodoxy to learn to
see that Reform is not a
negative movement but a
positive restorer of the
essence of Judaism for those
who have simply, because of
environment, allowed it to
fade away" (in their lives).
In summary, he declared,
"Reform cannot and should
not penetrate where Or-
thodoxy is naturally suc-
cessful. And Orthodoxy can no
longer penetrate where it has
already lost the battle."
He urged that both
movements "learn to unders-
tand the natural environment
of the constructive work that
each of us carries on. Let us
stop quarreling and learn to
respect each other."
White House May Consider
New Arms Sale To Jordan
w-j The Jewish m. T
The Reagan administration is
considering a possible
$14-million sale of Sidewinder
missiles to Jordan, a well-
placed Capitol Hill source said.
A Pentagon spokesman
declined to comment on the
prospect, except to confirm
that Congress has not been
notified officially of such plans.
The missiles, which the
source termed the "most-
advanced" air-to-air missiles
to date that the United States
has made available for foreign
governments to buy, would be
deployed from eight Tornado
fighter bombers that Jordan is
in the process of buying from
Great Britain.

Author Jerzy Kosinski Finally Comes To Israel
Kosinski, the well-known,
Polish-born, Jewish author
who has lived in the United
States since 1957, explained
here Thursday why he has
never visited Israel until now.
"You don't come to Israel
the way you go to any other
country, for a trip," said the
55-year-old writer. "You go
with the very specific notion
that you are going there to en-
counter, not the country, real-
ly, but part of yourself which
the country may wake up in
Kosinski, who lost his entire
family in the Holocaust, came
here to address a congress on
the traditions of Polish-Jewish
"I kept thinking one had to
select the moment for coming
to Israel when technically and
spiritually one should be free
to remain if one would choose
so," he said.
In any event, he observed,
he had not realy waited so long
to visit the Jewish state. "In
terms of our history, it is a
very short time actually 30
Kosinski said that on the
plane bound for Israel, "I kept
thinking that I am only 55.
How sad it is that I cannot call
my parents, or my uncles or
other members of my family
who may be in Warsaw or in
Lodz or in Krakow and say,
'Hey, guess where I am. I'm
following in the footsteps of
(Yehuda) Halevy. I'm in
Israel.' "

finest medical centers has been in

Israeli Diplomacy
Sends Envoy to Paris
The new flurry of diplomatic
activity in the Middle East in-
itiated by the United States
has raised tensions and
acrimony within Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir's Likud bloc.
The premier has come under
sharp attack from some Herut
hard-liners for allegedly
deviating from the party's
longstanding position on
autonomy for the administered
territories. He also is accused
of putting out diplomatic
feelers without consulting his
The latest such charges
arose from Shamir's dispatch
of his close confidant, Cabinet
Secretary Elyakim Rubins-
tein, on a secret mission to
Rubinstein's visit reportedly
coincided with the presence in
the French capital of Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak of Egypt
and King Hussein of Jordan,
both key players in the
diplomatic initiative launched
by Washington.
In Paris, Hussein was asked
by an Israeli correspondent if
he had received a message
from Shamir or one of his
aides. The king responded:
"No message."
In Israel, Housing Minister
David Levy spoke out strongly
against secret missions, which
he clearly implied were ar-
ranged behind his back and
those of other Likud ministers.
The speculation is that Rubins-
tein was conveying messages
from Shamir to one or both of
the Arab leaders in Paris.
The evolving American pro-
posals are understood to call
for changes and acceleration of
the autonomy plan first for-
mulated in the Camp David ac-
cords of 1978; The Americans
have referred to "interim ar-
rangements," intended to
come to grips with the current
unrest in the administered ter-
ritories, while preparations
are made to negotiate a final
an exchange of stock. Broward
Bank, formerly a subsidiary of
Broward Bancorp with offices
in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale
and Lauderdale Lakes,
became a subsidiary of the

and immediately changed its
name to Jefferson Bank. The

TEL AVIV, Jan. 21 (JTA) -
Senior officers of the Israel
Defense Force are concerned
about the long-term effects on
soldiers of violent confronts
tions with Palestinian
demonstrators in the Gaza
Strip, Haaretz reported.
They are especially anxious
over how the soldiers will react
to their new orders, which
restrict the use of lethal force
but require them to pursue
stone-throwers and severly
beat them. Many of the Arabs
who hurl missiles at troops are
teen-aged or younger.
Teams of military
psychologists have been sent
into the field to investigate
how the soldiers are respon-
ding. It is feared that some of
them will take advantage of
the orders to pummel
demonstrators and, to release
their tensions, apply force
where it is necessary.
The IDF has been massively
reinforced in the Gaza Strip in
recent days and many of the
soldiers sent there are from
branches of the military that
do not perform the tasks of
Several Air Force personnel
were seen in the Gaza Strip
Wednesday on patrol duties
with IDF infantrymen,
Haaretz reported.
Gen. Yitzhak Mordechai,
commander of the southern
region, which includes the
Gaza Strip, said Wednesday
that there is no central body
coordinating the disturbances
there, although "residents of
the Gaza Strip receive instruc-
tions and orders from broad-
casts by Radio Monte Carlo
and radio Baghdad."

Only in South Florida!
Where else would you expect
to find a Yiddish-English
musical production, with a bit
of Spanish and Hebrew thrown
L'Chaim (To Life) 88, starr-
ing Jackie Jacob, is an exciting
but sentimental musical tale of
a close-knit Jewish family flee-
ing its home in Rumania dur-
ing the prewar years. They
emigrate to Argentina, the
land of the tango, then con-
tinue on to Israel, the land of
milk and honey. Their journey
ends happily in the United
States, with the entire cast
joyfully singing and "Dancing
on Broadway.'
Drawing equally from humor
and melodrama, the semi-
autobiographical L'Chaim 88
draws from all phases of the
Jewish experience: an
awestruck emigrant family ar-
riving in a strange new land,
the young child studying
Hebrew with the rabbi, the
tear-jerking shtick of the zeide
(grandfather) living alone in
Miami Beach, waiting for a
phone call from his children.
"You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll
kvell, you'll like i.!" said Don
Nelsen of the New York Daily
True to character, Jackie
Jacob is a veteran of 18 years
in the Yiddish theatre, in
Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, New
York, and Miami Beach. To
see Jackie with his head of rich
black curls is worth the admis-
sion alone! The versatile
Jackie Jacob is so adept at in-
teracting with his audiences
that he improvises and adapts
each performance, to suit the
individual audience.
Jackie is joined by special
fuest star Cantor Leibele
chwartz, who has performed
for B'nai B'rith, Hadassah,
UJA, Workmen's Circle, and
other organizations on five
continents in at least as many
languages. Ana Maria
DeLuchi, Joy Boleda, and
Daniel Dalton are featured as
the slickly costumed
L'Chaim Dancers. L 'Chaim 88
is expertly produced by
Mariela Gonz and directed by
Eber Lobato.
Even if you don't know a
word of Yiddish, the plot is
easy to follow, because
L'Chaim 88's dialogue is in
English. A rich medley of
traditional Yiddish songs in-
cluding "Bei Mir Bist du
Schoen," and "Der Naiem
Sher" serves as a counterpoint
to Broadway memories such as
"My Way. From the bright
lights to their shiny tights, the
L Chaim Dancers bring a bit of
Broadway glitz and elegance
to South Florida. It's no
wonder the Forward called it
"Borscht South American
style on Broadway."

marched toward Pisgat-Zeev.
Police reinforcements rush-
ed to the scene and used tear
gas to force the demonstrators
back into the camp, which was
then sealed by a curfew.
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem, who visited the
camp, expressed regret, but
conceded that there was no
alternative under the
Until recently, policy had
been to refrain from imposing
curfews anywhere in
Jerusalem. Kollek has often
pointed with pride to the city
as an example that Jews and
Arabs can coexist peacefully,
although there have been
serious incidents of violence,
mainly in the Arab sectors of
East Jerusalem.
But a precedent was set
when a 24-nour curfew was im-
posed on the Arab
neighborhood of A-Tur, on the
Mount of Olives, after
residents rioted and blocked
the road to the Jerusalem In-
tercontinental Hotel.
Anti-Semitism on
the Dutch Stage
Education Minister Willem
Deetman wants to know why
the Amsterdam Theatrical
Academy insisted on produc-
ing a reputedly anti-Semitic
play by Rainer Werner
Fassbinder in face of angry
protests by Dutch Jews and
many non-Jews last month. He
has ordered an investigation.
Paul Sonke, director of the
academy, wants to know why
the play, "Garbage, the City
and Death," aroused such
fierce emotions among Jews,
none of whom had seen it. He
has asked for a "scientific
study" of the forces at work.

this seemingly endless round
of Arab violence in the ter-

help noticing certain changes.
When the violence first broke

One of the immediate causes
was the death of a Palestinian
truck driver in a collision with
an Israeli military vehicle.
Rumors spread swiftly that
the accident was deliberate.
Riots broke out from place to

But this has changed.
Events in the territories are
now guided by leaflets
clandestinely spread during
the night in Arab towns and
refugee camps. It is not clear
where they originate, but the
population by and large obeys
their instruction.
The centers of unrest shift
from town to town and camp
to camp. Sometimes the
violence bursts out
simultaneously at different
locations and there clearly
seems to be a guiding hand.
Whereas in the past, the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion engaged in incitement
from its bases in Jordan,
Lebanon or Tunisia, now the
guidance is internal. The PLO
and other terrorists groups
give their blessings, but Israeli

Shamir, Peres Express Support For New U.S. Peace Initiative
Leaders of Israel's two major
political parties expressed en-
thusiasm for a new American
peace proposal that would
speedily come to grips with the
unrest in the administered
Details of the plan were
disclosed by Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres of the Labor
Party, who said he was pleased
by the "tight scheduling and
burning belief" in the initiative
demonstrated by the
American policymakers.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
leader of the Likud bloc, ex-
pressed more cautious support
for the American plan, which
envisages some form of
autonomy referred to as
"interim arrangements" for
the territories "within a few
According to Shamir, the
plan is the best way to
"protect" Israel's presence in
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
and to ensure the future of
Jewish settlements there.
But all indications are that
Shamir will have a tough time
selling the plan to militant set-
tlers, already at a high pitch of
anger over events in the ter-
ritories and the latest terrorist
act a firebombing that
severely burned a settler from
Beit-El, Don Kalmanovich.
Shamir's task will not be
made easier by the fiercely
negative reaction the plan
already has received from two
Likud hardliners, Commerce
and Industry Minister Ariel
Sharon and Housing Minister
David Levy, both potential
rivals of Shamir for leadership
of the bloc's Herat wing.
Nor have key Arab players
shown much support for the
U.S. effort. Several elements
already have been flatly re-
jected by Jordan and the
Palestine Liberation
The American initiative, as
described by Peres, seems to
be an amalgam of past pro-
posals, but with a new
timetable. The plan envisages
a shortened interim period
four years of autonomy instead
of five set by the 1978 Camp
David formula and an
earlier start to negotiations to
determine the final status of
the territories.
Camp David provided that
the negotiations begin no later
than the third year after the
autonomy program is in place.
The Americans are now speak-
ing of "two to three months."
There are signs the
American plan was cobbled
together to accommodate the
differing points of view within
Israel and the Arab camp.
Coming as it does after a
long period of dormancy in
Washington with respect to
the Arab-Israeli conflict, it ap-
pears to reflect a sudden alarm
in the United States over the
continued deterioration of the
situation in the administered
According to Peres, the in-
terim autonomy arrangements
in the territories would be put
in place "within a few weeks,"
to be followed by convening of
an "international conference
or opening within two or three
months." Negotiations would
follow to work out a perma-
nent arrangement for the ad-
ministered territories.
Peres has long been ad
vocating an international con-
ference as a lead-in for direct
negotiations between Israel
and a Jordanian-Palestinian
delegation, with the possible
participation of other Arab
This has been fiercely oppos-
ed by Shamir, who insists on
the Camp David formula of
negotiations for Palestinian
autonomy between Israel and
Egypt, with Jordan entering
the talks at some later stage.
In Paris, Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak reiterated his
opposition to a peace con-
ference limited to Israel,
Egypt and Jordan. "It is very
important that Syria would
participate in such a con-
ference," he said.
Peres said in an army radio
interview Monday that he is
"not doctrinaire" about an in-
ternational conference. "I
want to see progress toward
peace," he said. The foreign
minister said he welcomes the
Americans diplomatic agenda,
even if it involves a compress-
ed timetable.
Peres said the United States
would "enunciate its own posi-
tion," both on the interim ar-
rangements and a permanent
settlement. He predicted the
position on a permanent settle-
ment would be along the lines
of "the Reagan plan plus or
The Reagan plan, the first
and so far only diplomatic in-
itiative by President Reagan
on the Arab-Israeli conflict,
was announced on Sept. 1,
1982. It calls for the West
Bank and Gaza Strip to be run
by the Palestinians but linked
with Jordan. It is predicated
on Israel's withdrawal from
the territories, but rules out
the establishment of a Palesti-
nian state there.
The Reagan initiative was
rejected by Israel at the time
and was rarely referred to
again by the administration.
The latest version got an im-
mediate cold shoulder from
Jordan. This was particularly
embarrassing to Washington,
Secular Jews
Hail Bus Service
Secularist militants are press-
ing for the institution of Sab-
bath bus service in Jerusalem.
The potentially explosive bus
service campaign is being
spearheaded by Avraham
"Fritri" Fried, one of the
leaders of the new Liberal
Center party. Fried is ex-
pected to be a candidate in this
year's Jerusalem City Council
Fried's proposal is to begin
with a single bus line running
from the Hadassah Hospital on
Mount Scopus to the Hadassah
Hospital on the other side of
the capitol, in the Ein Kerem
neighborhood. The ostensible
purpose of the service would
be to provide transportation to
those who want to visit their
relatives in the hospital. But
Fried wants the buses to stop
in every Jerusalem
because veteran Middle East
troubleshooter Philip Habib
had been called out of retire-
ment to go to Amman to sell
the plan.
He met with King Hussein
and Jordanian Prime Minister
Zaid Al-Rifai, apparently with
little success. Hussein prompt-
by took off for a tour of
Western European capitals to
continue lobbying for an inter-
national peace conference,
which he says is the only forum
for Arab-Israeli negotiations.
In Washington, White
House spokesman Marlin Fitz-
water said Habib also met in
Paris with Egyptian Foreign
Minister Esmat Abdel Meguid
and aides to Mubarak.
Shamir did some lobby-
ing of his own for the new
peace initiative. At an emo-
tional meeting with settlement
leaders from the West Bank,
he extolled the autonomy pro-
visions of the American plan.
He said Israel was engaged in
a historic struggle to retain its
presence and control in the ad-
ministered territories and that
the autonomy scheme was the
way to achieve this.
But Schevach Stern, a
spokesman for the settlement
leaders, said he and his col-
leagues were less than con-
vinced. He said they were not
pleased by Shamir's vaguely
supportive reply when the set-
tlers urged the immediate
establishment of new
The premier "said the tim-
ing was wrong," Stern told
reporters as the settlers left

Candidates Postulate On Jewish Agenda

amendments that would allow prayer in public school, and call for increased
economic and political pressure to be brought against South Africa to end
Republicans, on the other hand, either support voluntary prayer in public
schools or a moment of silence and oppose further economic sanctions against
South Africa. They also support changing tax laws to stimulate energy
Dole is alone among Republicans in supporting the Civil Rights Restoration
act, the ERA, strenthened federal fair housing legislation and an oil import fee.
All of the candidates agree that supporting the "special relationship" between
the United States and Israel is in the best interest of both countries, although
Jackson notes that "the events of the past seven years have put unnecessary
strains on the relationship, endangering our mutual goals of peace and security.
Babbitt, du Pont and Gore call for expanded trade between the United States
and Israel. Du Pont, Gephardt and Kemp support increased military cooperation,
and du Pont advocates allowing the U.S. military to buy Israeli-produced
weapons. Kemp repeats his call for a bilateral defense treaty.
In supporting an international peace conference, Jackson says he agrees with
the initiative outlined by Shimon Peres, Israel's foreign minister. Kemp,
however, says a peace conference is not the answer.
Babbitt, Bush, Gephardt, Kemp and Simon all support an expanded Camp
David peace process, and Babbitt, Bush, Gephardt and Robertson say the United
States should act as an "honest broker" in the region.
Bush, du Pont and Gephardt say they would not recognize or negotiate with
any group that refuses to accept United Nations Security Council Resolutions
242 and 388, recognizing Israel s right to exist within secure borders. Dole and
Dukakis say that arms sales in the Middle East should not compromise Israel's
Court Orders
Convert's Registration
All of the candidates offer support for the free emigration of Soviet Jewry,
although only Babbitt, Dole, Dukakis, du Pont and Haig say specifically that they
wouldunk arms negotiations with Soviet human rights progress.
Kemp says he would support legislation to link trade and economic cooperation
to advances in human rights. Dole, Dukakis, Gephardt, Gore and Simon say the
United States should "pressure," "stress" or "emphasize" human rights con-
cerns when negotiating with the Soviet Union.
None of the Democratic candidates express support either for prayer in public
schools or for tuition tax credits to families with children enrolled in parochial
On the Republican side, Bush, Dole and Robertson speak up for voluntary
prayer, while Kemp and Haig support a moment of silence. Only Haig supprts
tuition tax credits.
Robertson says that while he strongly defends the rights of those who would
choose not to participate in voluntary prayer, he does not "favor dismantling our
entire tradition of public affirmation in God held by the majority in order to ac-
commodate the views of the minority, who remain free to disagree."
All of the Republicans except Haig, and only Gore among the Democrats sup-
port a proposed constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget
Babbitt, Dukakis, Gephardt, Gore, Jackson and Simon all oppose a constitu-
tional amenment to ban abortion. Bush, Dole and Kemp support such an
Du Pont says he would rather turn the issue back to the state legislatures,
"where it belongs." Haig says he opposes abortion and federal funding of abor-
tion except when the mothers life is endangered, but that he opposes attempts
to "legislate morality."

The Supreme Court gave the
Interior Ministry seven days to
register non-Orthodox convert
Shoshana Miller as Jewish or
show cause why it failed to
comply with a court order to
do so issued a year ago.
The high court acted a day
after the ministry agreed
reluctantly to register three
other non-Orthodox converts
within 14 days rather than
answer their appeal, which had
gained the support of Attorney
General Yosef Harish.
Non-Orthodox circles here
hailed both developments as
significant progress in their ef-
forts to prevent the Orthodox
religious establishment from
amending the Law of Return,
allowing Israeli citizenship to
all Jews who seek it. The
amendment would recognize
only haiachic (Jewish legal)

But the two chief rabbis,
Mordechai Eliahu and
Avraham Shapira, joined other
rabbinic authorities in denoun-
cing the Supreme Court's deci-
sions as unwarranted in-
terference in halacha.
Miller's case established a
precedent for the registration
of non-Orthodox converts as
Jews. Miller, an American im-
migrant who was converted to
Judaism by a Reform rabbi in
the United States, won a
lengthy court battle in 1986 for
status as a Jew.
The Interior Ministry was
forced to issue her an iden-
tification card, but it stamped
the word "convert" next to
the designation of Jewishness.
This raised a storm of protest.
even among some Orthodox
scholars who found the
qualification repugnant and a
stigma prohibited by Jewish
The Supreme Court ordered
a new ID card for Miller. In the
interim, however, she return-
ed to the United States to take
care of her sick father.

Waldheim Report Excises Moral Guilt
ternational commission of
historians has found "nopro-
of* that Kurt Waldheim com-
mitted war crimes, according
to the 200-page report it sub-
mitted to Chancellor Franz
Vranitzky here.
But the Austrian president
was far from an innocent
bystander when he served as a
lieutenant in the German army
occupying the Balkans in
World War II, according to
several members of the panel
who commented on the text of
the report before it was made
The historians' report
originally was scheduled to be
released earlier, but some
news reports said the Austrian
Foreign Ministry suppressed
the report at the last minute,
and received an advance
The report was later releas-
ed, but only after the
historians reportedly complied
with a demand from the
Foreign Ministry to excise
references to the Austrian
president's "moral guilt."
According to the news
reports, Waldheim himself
was briefed about the contents
of both the original and the
revised reports prior to the
final version's release.
The commission was set up
by the Austrian government
last year to examine
Waldheim's wartime record in
light of charges that he was
implicated in the deportation
