The government
produced some encouraging
economic news over .the
weekend. Israel's balance of
payments gap has nar-
rowed, and its industrial
production is up. Govern-
ment spokesmen claimed at
a press briefing that this
proved the economic situa-
tion is not as bad as
depicu-d by the media.
Some economists cautioned,
howeverk, that such an assess-
ment based on limited economic
indicators was questionable. The
Central Bureau of -Statistics,
meanwhile, released figures
showing that real wages in-
creased by seven percent last
year with a commensurate rise in
private consumption of seven-
eight percent.

Patt. Mandelbaum reported that
the deficit of exports to imports
stood at $131 million in Sep-
tember compared to $263 million
in August and $139 million in
September, 1982.
Patt reported at Sunday's
Cabinet meeting that industrial
production was up 2.5 percent in
the first six months of 1983
compared to the same period of
1982. He said in the second
quarter of this year, production
rose by 7.5 percent over the
second quarter of 1982.
up this economic news in an ef-
fort to "cool" the crisis atmos-
phere created by recent collapse
of bank shares and the sharp
devaluation of the Shekel. But
the figures on consumption made
public may give pause to those
who recall Premier Yitzhak
Shamir's warning in his inaugur-
al Knesset speech just a week ago
that Israelis have been living
beyond their means.
According to the Central
Bureau of Statistics, the pur-
chase of private cars by Israelis
increased by 90 percent over the
past two years. In the first eight
months of this year, Israelis
bought 70,000 private vehicles
equal to the total purchased in all
of 1982. By the end of this year,
the number of new cars on the
roads is expected to reach
Whether the buying spree con-
tinues may depend on Shamir's
ability to institute the austerity
regime he claimed was vital to
economic health.
Meridor, Minister of Economic
Affairs, has indicated that he,
too, will resign shortly.

Attacked on His Way to Synagogue
I-Mayor Teddy Kollek, set
upon and pummeled by
Bangs of ultra-Orthodox
pews in the Mea Shearim
quarter Saturday, was back
Ut his desk Sunday mor-
TJn% as Cabinet Ministers
narply condemned the
tttack. It was also condem-
"fed last night by President
CJaim Herzog and by
owomo Tussia-Cohen, the
^ud candidate for mayor
'ho will oppose Kollek in
the next municipal election.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir said
at Sunday's Cabinet meeting
that the government expected
the police to take drastic action
"to put an end to such disgrace-
ful acts."
A spokesman for the Mayor
said that the government must
take a strong stand against
Kollek's assailants. He said it
would help if the Aguda Israel
party stopped putting up bail for
Orthodox Jews arrested for
disorderly conduct, as it has done
in several cases in the past.

ites called on Kollek to P?s
their regret over the incident. The
callers Included

some ultra-
Kollek was attacked by more
than 200 religious zealots as he
was leaving the Persian synago-
gue in the Bikharian quarter
which borders Mea Shearim. He
had been harassed during the
services by some 20 zealots who
stood outside the synagogue
shouting "Nazi" and "enemy of
When he emerged, escorted by
leaders of the Persian congre-
gation, he and his escorts were
surrounded by a mob who struck
and kicked them. Kollek,
knocked to the ground, fought
back as he was kicked, punched
and scratched. He injured a knee
which was later X-rayed.
BY THE time the police
arrived, the Mayor had already
left. He drove himself home and
later visited another synagogue.
He declared that he would
continue to walk anywhere in the
city without police protection.
The immediate cause for the
attack appeared to be Kollek's
stand against religious op-
position to the construction of a
mixed public swimming pool in
the Ramot quarter, near
Orthodox neighborhoods.

In His Maiden Speech
Shamir Urges End to 'Mad' Arms Race
Yitzhak Shamir, in his
first Knesset speech as
Prime Minister, called for
an end to "the mad arms
race" in the Middle East.
He referred only obliquely
to the recent shipment of
advanced Soviet weaponry
to Syria.
He seemed to imply that
Israeli forces will remain in
Lebanon only so long as a
security threat remains to its
northern borders and is therefore
not necessarily contingent on a
simultaneous Syrian withdrawal
from Lebanon.
This appeared to be a
departure, however small, from
the Keagan Administrations
position that all foreign forces
must be removed in tandem and
that the Israeli presence is
required until then.
refer specifically to the Soviet SS-
21 ground-to-ground missiles
now in or on the way to Syria also
contrasted with President Reag-
an's emphasis of the menace
posed by the SS-21s whose 70
mile range can strike targets deep
inside Israel as well as U.S. war-
ships in waters of Lebanon
"We frequently hear of new
weapons systems reaching the
Middle East, each one more
modern and advanced than the
last, more devastating and
murderous," Shamir said. "And
this is in addition to the ongoing
flow of 'regular' weaponry to the
region, from the East and from
the West, rockets from the East
and planes from the West.
"Perhaps the time has come to
call to the nations of the region to
pause for one moment and to ask
themselves: How long? Has not
the time come to end this mad
pursuit, this murderous race .
Is not our region sated with
wars? What the region needs is
not weapons but peace." Shamir
said. He added: "We call upon all
the nations of the Middle Kasi
and their governments to end the
mad arms race and come to the
negotiating table."
ACCORDING TO observers.
Shamir's maiden speech as head
of government was deliberately
low key in order not to exacerbate
the tensions raised by the
deployment of SS-21s in Syria.
There has been no confirmation
here of American media reports
that Israel will seek U.S. Per-
shing missiles to counter the
Soviet-Syrian threat.
Observers also noted the slight
but significant shift in Shamir's
treatment of the Syrian role in
Lebanon and its impact on
Israel's policy and position there.
He did not specifically and
unequivocally link Israel's with-
drawal to a parallel pull-out by
Syria. He appeared to indicate
that Israel could contemplate
leaving Lebanon regardless of an
ongoing Syrian presence there,
provided the security threat
posed by that presence is
somehow removed.
The observers saw in this the
possible influence of Defense
Reagan Administration
Mum on Jordan Deal
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration continued to
maintain an official silence
over the weekend on
reports that the U.S. plans
to equip two Jordanian
army brigades to serve as
part of a joint U.S.-Jorda-
nian strike force to meet
special emergencies in the
Persian Gulf.
But White House Deputy
Press Secretary Larry Speakes
said last Friday that since both
Jordan and the U.S. are inter-
ested in Mideast security "it
should surprise no one that ques-
tion-- of regional security are re-
gularly discussed."
According to reports, the Ad-
ministration has secretly pro-
mised ,i 8225 million appropria-
tion for the two brigades and to
provide the Jordanians with C-
130 transport planes, medical
evacuation transport and ad-
vanced infantry and river
crossing equipment.
THE PLAN, which has been in
the works since 1979, has been
discussed with key members of
Congress and with the Israelis.
The Administration apparently
hopes to persuade Israel not to
oppose the plan but the Israelis
fear the force can be used against
Speakes said Friday he would
neither confirm nor deny" the
report. "Jordan is an important
friend of the United States with
which we have long-stand-ing
and well known military supply
relationships." Speakes said.
"It is in the interest of the
United States to continue these
relationships as both countries
have an interest in regional
security that is equally well
known. It should surprise no one
that questions of regional
security are regularly discussed."
Speakes' statement was
exactly the same as State De-
partment spokesman John
Hughes made last Thursday
when the report became public.
Strong Congressional opposition
to the plan is expected, since
there have been moves in Con-
gress against any additional
arms to Jordan in the wake of
King Hussein's refusal to join the
Mideast peace negotiations.

Minister Moshe Arens who has
long advocated a more flexible
approach, stressing that the sole
criterion of Israel's policy in
Lebanon should be the security of
its northern borders.
"WE SHALL withdraw our
forces from Lebanon when con-
ditions of security (for Galilee!
have been secured," Shamir said.
"Syria's massive military
presence on Lebanese soil in-
dicates the danger that Lebanon
might return to being a base for
attacks against Israel The
presence of Syria, which supports
a war of terrorism against Israel
from Lebanese soil prevents us
from leaving Lebanon," he said.
He added that the sooner the
Syrians withdraw, "the better it
He added that the sooner the
Syrians withdraw, "the better it
will be for Lebanon and for the
prospects of stability in the whole
region." In that way, according
to observers, Shamir seemed to
focus on the security threat posed
to Israel by Syria's presence in
Lebanon, not to its presence per
se. The implication was that if
the threat could be neutralized,
Israel would feel free to leave.
On other foreign policy
matters, Shamir noted that Israel
was "not happy" with its "cold
peace" with Egypt. He pledged
his government's determined
efforts to protest against and
seek to improve that situation.
HE EXTOLLED the success
of the previous government,
headed by Menachem Begin, in
securing agreements with Egypt
and Lebanon, although the latter
is still not ratified, and noted that
the delegations of those countries
were the only Arab delegations
which did not walk out of the UN
Assembly when the Israeli
Ambassador, Yehuda Blum,
addressed the world body.
Regarding the situation on the
West Bank, Shamir said it was
"a pity" that the golden oppor-
tunity presented by the Camp
David accords has been missed so
far. He said that had the other
parties responded, negotiations
on the "final Status' of the
territories could have been under
way by now.
Shamir reiterated Israel's tau
to Egypt to resume thj
autonomy negotiations and f

or Jordanian delegations, "[j

Hot Seat
Cohen-Orgad Named Finance Minister
Leslie Feldman and Amy Spector
dancing to "Putting on the Ritz"
during the JCC After School
_ Yigal Cohen-Orgad, a 46-
year-old Herat Knesset
member, was named Is-
rael's new Minister of
Finance, replacing Yoram
Aridor who resigned last
week. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, who met with
Cohen-Orgad Monday
morning, delayed making
an official announcement of
the appointment.
Cohen-Orgad, who holds a
Bachelor's degree in economics
and heads the Likud caucus in
the Knesset Finance Committee,
is a political hawk, an admirer of
the Gush Emunim and has a
home and business interests in
the West Bank. Like Shamir and
Defense Minister Moshe Arens,
he opposed the peace treaty with
Egypt and was one of the 18
Knesset members who voted
against it in 1979.
Cabinet is expected to raise a
political storm in Likud's Liberal
Party wing which had its own
candidates for the Treasury post
- Energy Minister Yitzhak
Modai or Commerce and
Industry Minister Gideon Patt.
The Liberal Knesset faction
met in emergency session. One
member was quoted as saying,
"expect thunder and lightning,
the reaction will be sharp."
Another Liberal MK, Pinhas
Goldstein, predicted that the
appointment of Cohen-Or;n\d
brings the end of the Likud
government closer.
Cohen-Orgad, who spcke
briefly to reporters after leaving
Shamir's office, refused to
confirm or deny that he was
given the finance portfolio. He
said the Cabinet and the Knesset
would make the appointment.
Shamir, however, was under
pressure to name a successor to
COHEN-ORGAD .vas born in
Tel Aviv in 1937, the son of
immigrants from 1 iland. His
father was in t e lumber
business. He was a member of
Betar, the Herat youth move-
ment. He was elected to the
Knesset in 1977. In recent
months he has been an outspoken
critic of the economic policies of
Aridor, a Herat colleague, and
was rebuked at a meeting of the
Herat Central Committee for the
sharpness of his language.
In a recent radio interview,
Cohen-Orgad called for a "social
contract" between the gover-
nment, Histadrat and private
employers. He said if such a pact
did not materialize, it was the
government's duty to go ahead
with the process of economic
The main economic goal of the
government, according to Cohen-
Orgad is renewed economic
growth "on the basis of a healthy
economic infrastructure."
HE PROPOSED that people
with the highest incomes bear the
heaviest tax burden and should
receive reduced cost-of-living
increments. But he opposed any
cuts in Dollar and col.-linked
savings accounts, shelters for the
more affluent sectors.
With the appointment of
Cohen-Orgad apparently final,
Shamir may try to appease his
Liberal coalition partners with
another senior Cabinet post, such
as the Foreign Minister. Modai is
known to want that portfolio.
But it is also sought by his
Liberal colleague, Deputy
Premier David Levy.
"See how the wind sails the boats" was the lesson
learned by the JCC Pre-schoolers as they set their
sailboats adrift in celebration of Columbus Day.
State Dep't. Denies 'Secret
Deal' With Syria on PLO
Nobel Laureate McClintock
Wins Wolf Foundation Award
TEL AVIV (JTA) Dr. Barbara McClintock, the
winner of the 1983 Nobel Prize for medicine, was the
recipient of the Israeli Wolf Foundation Prize in 1981. The
81-year-old biologist from Cold Spring Harbor, Long
Island, N.Y., received the $100,000 Wolf Award for her
discovery that genes can move from one spot to another
on the chromosomes of a plant and change the future
generations of plants it produces. This discovery also led
to her winning the Nobel Prize.
Samantha Smith
Inspired Soviet Kids
To Write to Reagan
(JTA) The State De-
partment has denied that
there was any "secret deal"
between the U.S. and Syria
in which the Syrians would
keep the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization out of the
Shouf mountains in
But State Department spokes-
man John Hughes indicated that
the U.S. would not be displeased
if the Syrians were able to ac-
complish this. "Obviously, we
favor the removal of th-e PLO
from Lebanon by any mfjana that
can be achieved, as we. favor the
departure of the Syrians and Is-
raelis," be said.
THE REPORTED deal, ac-
cording to a syndicated column
by Rowland Evans and Robert
Novak published in The Wash-
ington Post, would be aimed at a
Syrian guarantee of Israel's
northern borders. However, the
Syrian drive now to push out the
PLO is seen here as part of the ef-
fort by President Hafez Assad to
gain control over Yasir Arafat's
Hughes' remarks were made
aft .-r he labeled "incorrect" the
Fvans and Novak column which
.aid Secretary of State George
Shultz was trying to "undercut"
the U.S.-Syrian deal in a dispute
with National Security Adviser
William Clark.
The column claimed that
Shultz considered both Clark and
his deputy, Robert McFarlane,
who is President Reagan's special
envoy in Lebanon, as being "pro-
Arab" and that Shultz had made
a "public outburst" about
Clark's trip to Rome Oct. 1 to
confer with McFarlane.
HUGHES SAID that Shultz
had never discussed his feelings
about Clark's trip with anyone,
publicly or privately. He said the
Secretary viewed the Evans and
Novak column today with
"sorrow" rather than anger be-
cause he saw it as another
example of a "factually incorrect
and gossipy column" which helps
to "sow the seeds" of "discord"
within the Administration.
The State Department spokes-
man noted that McFarlane
"worked closely" with the State
Department and was in daily
telephone contact with Depart-
ment officials. Shultz and Pres-
ident Reagan are in "total co-
ordination" on the Middle East
policy, Hughes stressed.
He noted that the U.S. has
pointed out that Syria has
"interests" in Lebanon but it was
being "unhelpful" in the current
situation there. He also pointed
to Reagan's radio address last
Saturday which strongly at-

has been three months
since 11-year-old Samantha
Smith of Maine visited the
Soviet Union at the invita-
tion of Soviet leader Yuri
Andropov after having
written to him, but her trip
continues to fire the ima-
gination of children whose
families remain trapped in
the USSR.
On Oct. 9, according to the
student Struggle for Soviet Jew-
[y (SSSJ), nine-year-old Mikhail

MIKHAIL, Kira and then-
mother Inna Brokhina have been
refused exit since 1979.
This is the third known letter
by children sent in the wake of
the Samantha Smith episode, the
SSSJ said. In May, nine-year-old
Avi Goldstein of Tbilisi wrote to
Samantha, asking her to deliver a
message directly to Andropov for
the freedom of his family, who
had been refused emigration to
Israel evern prior to his birth.
Samantha never saw Andropov
during her trip.
In June, 12-year-old Irina
Tamopohky of Kharkov wrote to
Andropov to defend her father
who was about to stand trial for
"anti-Soviet slander" after
watching a Soviet TV interview
with Samantha. There was no
response, and her father was
- sentenced to three years.

New Book Says
Slave Masters Ply Trade in Araby
Continued from Page 1
Laffin's book is not a definitive
study on the subject of the Arab
slave trade. But it is an ex-
tremely valuable and highly
readable account of an issue that
too few people know anything
THIS BOOK reminds us that
even the most liberal and
enlightened audience must
remember that the tolerance it
preaches has its limits, and that
there are certain customs in other
civilizations which Western
society cannot condone without
endangering whatever morals it
still possesses. These have to do
with basic human rights and
human dignity and include child
labor, abuse of women and
The fact that all these are still
prevalent in the Arab world is in
itself an evil which must be
eradicated. It also goes to show
that we are facing a civilization
with very different values, mores,
customs and beliefs from ours, a
civilization which uses familiar
Western terms, but within a
completely different context,
changing the actual meaning.
Slavery was officially abolish-
ed in Saudi Arabia in 1962, yet it
is no secret that it still continues,
even though the sort of auction
observed by Laffin in Djibouti,
port city of Somalia, is
presumably a thing of the past. It
is known that many a pilgrim to
Mecca and Medina never leaves
Saudi Arabia again as a free man.
with the phenomenon of slavery
in the Arab world, the rites of
slavery and the exploitation of
East Africa, especially the slave
trade which followed the Arab
settlement in Zanzibar. Reading
the accounts all of them
documented by travelers and
scholars who had observed the
phenomenon at first hand it is
difficult to grasp that most of the
tales relate to our own lifetime.
The most shocking aspect of
the slave trade was the actual
rounding up of the slaves in
Africa and the long march over
hundreds of miles of desert, in the
course of which 80 to 90 percent
of the slaves perished of starva-
tion, disease and exhaustion.
Those who survived were then
subjected to the sort of degrading
experience observed by Laffin in
Djibouti. The actual life in
servitude which followed must
have seemed like heaven in
comparison with the humiliation
and pain suffered by those
wretched human beings until
their eventual purchase.
Laffin also describes Islam's
attitude to slavery, which he says
"is ambiguous and ambivalent
and can hardly be anything else."
He writes: "The Koran forbids
slavery and introduced the new
idea that it is highly meritorious
to set slaves tree. This is straight-
forward enough. But, says the
Moslem, you cannot set slaves
free unless you first own slaves
therefore slavery is sanctioned
by God and almost certainly
directly commanded by Him"
Stock Exchange Shutdown
Puts Investors on Spot
JERUSALEM (JTA) The continued shutdown
of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, now in its second week,
is having a ripple effect on business. Investors, unable to
liquidate shares, are finding themselves short of cash.
Their creditors, with bills due, refuse to accept checks that
may bounce.
BANKS ARE WILLING to allow their customers to
write checks substantially in excess of their balance the
traditional Israeli practice of overdraft on which a high
rate of interest is charged. But the banks have come under
pressure to limit overdrafts and credit.
People short of cash are expected to sell the Dollars,
bought only recently in face of a rapidly weakening
Shekel. To do so involves a severe loss because the Shekel
was devalued by 23 percent last week.
Dollars are still being sold, but at a limit of $3,000 per
person. In an effort to ease the cash squeeze, the Treasury
has postponed the monthly payment of the Value Added
Tax (VAT) from the end of this week to the end of the
Mill Asks Gov't. For

flation of any Western nation and stands as number three
of countries around the world that are suffering from
astronomical inflation, according to a study published
here by the International Labor Organization.
BOLIVIA IS FIRST on the list, with a record high of
296.5 percent inflation rate. Argentina is second, with an
inflation rate of 209.7 percent, followed by Israel with a
131.3 percent inflation rate. (The study was completed
before the current economic crisis in Israel where inflation
is expected to soar to an annual rate of 160-170 percent
this year.)
Among the countries listed in the study, Japan, has
the lowest inflation rate of 1.8 percent.

Ata textile mills, which employ
over 3,000 people in Haifa and
other parts of northern Israel,
has asked the government to bail
it out of its current financial
difficulties. David Arbell, general
manager, told the Haifa Labor
Council that unless Ata receives
a S10 million grant from the
government it will be forced to
shut down.
According to Arbell, share-
holders are ready to invest
another $4 million to keep the
plants going, but only if govern-
ment aid is forthcoming. The
prospect that one of the country's
largest private industries might
go out of business sent shock
waves through the labor market.
Anxiety was registered in several
new development towns in
Galilee where much of the local
work force is employed by Ata.
The company has been hard hit
by foreign competition and the
recent devaluations of the shekel
which have increased its Dollar
ban debt by 30 percent. Ata
workers have still not received
their last month's wages.
The management has blamed
the influx of European imports,
encouraged by Israel's arrange-
ments with the European
Common Market. Israel's textile
exports have also suffered. One of
the company's major foreign
customers, the Marks and
Spencers department store chain
in Britain, warned a year ago that
it would give Ata two years to
bring the quality of its products
up to the standards of European
and other competitors.
