Israeli leaders expressed
uncertainty about the true
intentions of Jordan's King
Hussein toward Palestinians in
the West Bank.
Hussein appeared on televi-
sion to announce, in a land-
mark speech, that he was
cutting legal and administra-
tive ties with the West Bank in
order to clear the way for an
independent Palestinian state
under the Palestine Liberation
Jordan recently dropped its
five-year economic assistance
plan to the West Bank and
dissolved the lower house of
Parliament, half of whose
members are from the terri-
Rumors were spreading here
that Hussein is determined to
go ahead and adopt further,
more drastic measures against
the residents of the West
According to those rumors,
the Jordanian government
would no longer issue pass-
ports to the residents of the
territories, would end
economic aid to a number of
public institutions and would
abolish some $70 million in
salaries paid annually to
20,000 civil servants in the
West Bank.
But despite the rumors,
there was no clear indication
whether Hussein intended to
take further measures to
implement his decision to cut
ties to the West Bank.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir told Israel Television
that Hussein has been disen-
gaged from the West Bank for
quite some time. Therefore,

Israeli Delegation In Moscow
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's
five-member consular delega-
tion to Moscow spent its first
weekend in the Soviet capital
by attending services at
Moscow's main Choral Syna-
The delegation is the first of
Israeli diplomats to visit the
Soviet Union since the Soviets
severed ties with Israel in the
wake of the Six-Day War.
Crowds at the synagogue
were smaller than had been
anticipated. Some 60 Jews
were reported to have
attended Friday evening's
services and about 150 local
Jews and tourists attended
Saturday morning.
The Israeli's arrival has been
covered in the Soviet media by
one-line references, if at all.
Some of the worshipers Friday
night were said to have heard
of the planned synagogue visit
on foreign shortwave radio
In conversations with the
Israelis, many Soviet Jews,
including some refuseniks,
reportedly expressed disap-
pointment at changes in Israeli
policy designed to force those
emigrating on Israeli visas to
go directly to Israel. In recent
months, more than 90 percent
have gone instead to the
Uniteu States and
Western countries.
The Israeli delegation
arrived at Moscow's Shere-
metyevo Airport. They were
met by two diplomats from the
Dutch Embassy, but not by
Soviet officials.
The delegation begins its
official duties in Moscow when
its members will present them-

For the first time since its
inception three years ago, the
young Adult Division of the
Jewish Federation closed the
year with a traditional annual
meeting. At the same time, it

On July 26 at 7 p.m., 93
people gathered at the Norton
Gallery of Art in West Palm
Beach for the Young Adult
Division's first annual
meeting. The evening began in
the gallery's courtyard with a
reception of cocktails and hor
d'oeuvres. The meeting's
proceedings were held in the
auditorium and opened with a
welcome by Carol Shubs Chair-
person of the Annual Meeting,
followed by a report of the
nominating committee by C.
Scott Rassler, Chair of the
Nominating Committee and
past president of YAD.
In his address to the audi-
ence, Executive Director
Jeffrey Klein said, "We have
witnessed a tremendous
growth in the young Adult
Division and its fundraising
campaign over the last three
years. YAD started with
people and under 300 names
on the mailing list," he
reported. "Today it has grown
to well over 75 active

Dressing For Success
B&P Women's Group Kicks Off
1988/89 Program Season


You're standing in your
closet; clothes, hangers, stock-
ings and belts are strewn
across the bed behind you. It's
8:30 a.m. and you have to be in
your office by 9:00. Why can't
you decide which earrings, belt
and shoes to wear with the silk
green dress you have on? Is
the dress you re wearing even
appropriate for the cocktail
reception you'll be attending
right after work? And your
makeup for the evening, will
you look like a washed out
working girl by the time you
arrive at 6 p.m.?
"Dressing For Success" will
be the subject of the first Busi-
ness & Professional Women's
Group program meeting of the
Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation, on

p.m. at the Palm Beach
Airport Hilton, 150 Australian
Avenue, West Palm Beach.
The dinner program will
feature Lenore Ber, fashion
coordinator from Lord &
Taylor, who will demonstrate
the art of accessorizing and
coordinating a wardrobe for
the professional image. A
Chanel makeup artist will also
be present to demonstrate
cosmetic techniques to achieve
the professional woman's look.
"It's going to be an exciting
evening with a lot of revelance
to the women attending," said
co-chair Mimi Stein. "I think
they will learn a great deal
that will benefit them in both
their personal and professional
lives, she continued. "It will
be fun, entertaining and full of
useful ideas."
"This event will be an excel-
lent kick-off to a successful
year for Women's B&P," said
Lisa Siskin-Glusman, co-chair.

will reach new heights this
year, which will allow the

its remarkable growth. "Last

committees in place, created
by-laws and held some excel-
lent programs," he said. "This

further ahead with what we
learned from 1987/88."

Back To School:
Midrasha Now Registering For School
Friday, August 12,1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 3
Students attending
Midrasha Judaica High School
this year will have a new selec-
tion of courses to choose from
when they register for fall
semester. Registration for
classes is now going on.
The new courses include
"From Parent to Child," a
look at Ethical Wills;
"Judaism and Islam," an
examination of the relation-
ship between the two in
today's world affairs; "Jewish
War & Peace," a discussion of
Israel's ability to maintain its
security while honoring the
ancient Jewish traditions
regarding war and peace;
"Jewish Humor," a look at
Jewish humor as a social docu-
mentation of our people's
history; "Women in Judaism,"
an exploration of Jewish
women's roles in the Jewish
community; and "Jewish
Music Theatre," a study of
selections from some of the
outstanding Jewish Musical
productions and Broadway
hits with Jewish themes.
"Panim El Panim," (lit. face
to face), is a special opportu-
nity open to only 15 11th and
12 graders. The class is built
around a national program
from The Washington Insti-
tute for Jewish Leadership
and Values, a non-profit educa-
tional foundation. It is a
chance for students to come
face to face with some of the
internal political issues which
affect the local Jewish
community and to consider
some of the state and national
political issues which have
impact upon the religious,
economic and legal status of
the Jews in the United States.
The highlight of this class is a
trip to Washington, D.C. with
other Florida teenagers.
Midrasha will continue its
relationship with Palm Beach
Community College and once
again offer two three-credit
college courses in "Drama"
and "Roots: World and Amer-
ican Jewish History." These
courses will be available to
juniors and seniors as well as
college students who want to
take off-campus courses in
Classes, credits and Judaica
is the educational face of
Midrasha. But fellowship and
fun are also encouraged as
essential parts of Jewish life at
the Judaica High School.
When classes end at 8:30 on
Wednesday night, a social
period begins during which
students can snack on refresh-
ments and spent 45 minutes
socializing, playing sports or
joining a club activity, like arts
and crafts or journalism.
One time per month, the
school holds a current issues
forum in which special subjects
are discussed with the
students. Last year topics
included a Catholic/Jewish
dialogue, alcoholism/drug
abuse and teenage sex.
"We're proud of the curric-
ulum we've assembled for the
students this year," said Dr.
Elliot Schwartz, Director of
Education at the Jewish
Federation. "There is a
variety of excellent and
diverse courses students can
choose from and almost the
entire staff is returning from
last year. That's something to
be proud of," he said.

rabbis on staff and plans to
increase its enrollment this
year. Last year, 135 students

School Prayer Reality
WASHINGTON (JTA) President Reagan maintained
that although he has not been able to get Congress to adopt
a constitutional amendment allowing voluntary prayer in
the public schools, he believes school prayer will again
become a reality.
"I'm convinced that one day such a measure will be
passed," Reagan told some 8,000 cheering delegates at a
student congress on evangelism.
The president noted that the Constitutional Convention
opened its sessions with a prayer, as has the U.S. Congress
since its inception. "Isn't it time we let God back in the
classrooms?" he asked.
Reagan, who was consistently applauded by the young
evangelicals, attacked those who "misread the Constitu-
tion" by opposing "public symbols" of religion or
mentioning God in the schools. He did not elaborate on
what symbols he meant.

Could Peace
Spawn War?
Will Iran and Iraq now turn
their weapons toward Israel?
This is one of many questions
posed by Iran's acceptance of
U.N. Security Council Resolu-
tion 598 and the possible end
of the Iran-Iraq war.
PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat
welcomed the possibility of a
united Arab effort against
Israel. PLO Radio in
Damascus quoted him as
saying, "[We] hope that a new
stage will be initiated during
which Moslem blood will be
saved and efforts mobilized to
confront the rancorous Zion-
The Persian Gulf conflict has
consumed the energies of revo-
lutionary Iran and radical Iraq.
Preoccupied with its Persian
foe. Baghdad moderated its
vehement anti-Zionism. Iraq,
which has sent troops to fight
Israel in four wars, now
possesses a battle-tested,
million-man army equipped
with sophisticated weapons.
Israeli officials fear that
Baghdad could once again
threaten the Jewish state. A
senior Israeli security official
told the Israeli daily Ma 'ariv:
"We shall have to draw a red
line and eventually make it
clear to the Iraqis that from
our point of view, the entry of
a single Iraqi division into
Jordanian territory consti-
tutes an aggressive action
against us."
With a poorly equipped and
severely demoralized military,
Iran is now in no position to
attack Israel. However, the
termination of the war with
Iraq without a victory has been
a blow to Khomeini's funda-
mentalist vision and he could
seek to keep the revolution
alive by stepping up anti-Israel
operations in southern
Israeli Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin downplayed the
possibility of war with Iran or
Iraq in the short term: "I
believe that after eight years
of war the most intensive
and protracted war the Middle
East has seen for decades, and
a war in which the number of
Iraqi casualties and wounded
far exceeds the price in human
lives paid by all the Arab
armies throughout their wars
against Israel I cannot
honestly imagine that Iraq
would be eager to engage in
another war.. .. Iran also falls
into this category."
State Department officials
privately acknowledge that
smaller Persian Gulf Arab
states, such as Kuwait and
Saudi Arabia, fear Iraq's
ascendancy as a major power
in the region, despite the fact
that these countries have
provided $50 billion to build up
the Iraqi army. These nations
worry that Baghdad may cast
a jealous eye toward oil
resources located in striking
But Iraq's need for cash to
pay debts and redevelop
battered areas could give
conservative Gulf states
leverage in dealing with the
fovernment of Iraqi President
addam Hussein. Meanwhile,
military expansion and moder-
nization programs begun by
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and
other Arab regimes as deter-
rents to Iran will continue.
Syria, which joined Libya in
supporting Iran's war effort,
may now be reaccepted fully
among Arab nations. An
Israeli military analyst even
suggested a tactical, anti-
Israel alliance between Iraq
and Syria. But Damascus
traditional enmity toward Iraq
might slow rapproachement.
With the Iran-Iraq conflict
resolved, the Arab-Israeli
peace process may re-emerge
as the primary focus of inter-
Arab rhetoric. Rabin said that
the end of the war could end
the pragmatic reconciliation of
Iraq and Jordan and limit the
political maneuverability of
Jordan's King Hussein.
"I for one said that the
continuation of the war
between Iran and Iraq would
not necessarily play into
Israel's hands," Rabin said.
"This war brought about an
accelerated arms race on the
part of some countries. .
[including] the Arabian penin-
sula countries led by Saudi
Arabia, motivated primarily by
the threat that one of the two
sides might win.
"I do not think the Arab
countries in the peninsula
wanted to see Iraq win. Like
us, they did not want any side
to win. '

Gaza Under Scrutiny
"I estimate that part of the
population would agree to a
political solution," a high-
ranking military officer in the
Gaza Strip told NER recently.
"The problem in the Arab
world is that fanaticism always
In mid-July two groups, each
with factions, were competing
to direct that fanaticism, the
Israeli said. First, the PLO,
and within it more extreme
components such as the
Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine (PFLP).
Those like the PFLP "want
to escalate the battle whatever
the cost to the residents them-
selves." But "certain forces in
the PLO understand they can't
go in that direction."
Second, Islamic fundamen-
talists, including illegal groups
which shelter themselves
under the Islamic Movement
legalized by the Israelis in
1979. "Their first stage is to
prepare the field ... for
Muslim religious rule," the
officer noted. "Only after they
spread the faith here ... will
they continue into the other
territories [the West Bank)
and into Israel."
But under the banner of
Islamic Jihad, fundamentalists
"want to liberate all the terri-
tory with the sword" and
assert that "Jews do not have
a right to exist in this area,"
the official explained.
He noted that a leaflet from
the clandestine uprising lead-
ership "talks about Jews as
Nazis" and called for them to
be put into "zoos." The officer
added that recently "the Nazi
flag appeared here in Gaza."
The more mainstream PLO
wants to break the ties
between the general popula
tion and Israel's military-
supervised civil administra-
tion, with its more than 8,000
employees. All but 90 workers
are Palestinian Arabs, with
Israelis in supervisory posi-
But the PLO has "no alter-
native to fill the role of the civil
administration," the officer
said. With its $66 million
annual budget, the authority
funds and staffs the schools,
health facilities and other local
For example, despite its
promises, the PLO has not
paid any salaries to Palestinian
Arab policemen in the Gaza
Strip who heeded instructions
from leaders of the uprising to
resign. "It is clear that they do
not have the capability
to pay."
The PLO's oft-reported
wealth "stays in banks" or
pays for "the high standard of
living of PLO leaders. ... In
the Field there is almost no
Although the PLO and the
other groups hoped to
continue almost daily distur-
bances and strikes, "the
majority of the population,
maybe 90 percent, is tired ..
exhausted. They've had
enough, and after more than
half a year, they realize they
haven't reached any achieve-
"When they ceased to see
the news media running
between their legs, they went
into a deep frustration. The
PLO leadership now gave
orders to try to bring video
cameras in to take their own
Mid-summer calls by some
PLO components for the resi-
dents not to go to work in
Israel failed. "Fifty thousand
of Gaza's 90,000 work force
work inside Israel. Most of
them are from the refugee
camps," the officer said.
Gazan society is split between
the 340,000 refugees and
offspring and the 260,000 orig-
inal residents and their fami-
lies; most of the latter hold the
permanent jobs in the Strip.
So, despite threats and
attacks on cars and buses,
"most workers make every
effort to get to Israel... even
sleeping on the roads to [be
able to] get to their work
The officer said that, partly
as a result of "talks with local
people at all levels," he
believes they understand that
they can achieve "self-
identity" whether a state or
something less only by
dealing with Israel. They know
that Arab countries already
would have crushed the
uprising. And they do not want
Israel in the first stage to
leave them to themselves and
Lebanese-style inter-Arab
"account settling."
Despite the economic costs
and social strains on Israel,
Israeli forces must stay in
Gaza and maintain order until
a political settlement is
reached, the officer said.
Otherwise, Israel would have
the problems of Gaza and of
Judea and Samaria "within
the 1948 borders of Israel,"
among its own sizeable Arab
minority. E.R.

Tehiya Adds Delegates
JERUSALEM (JTA) The right-wing Tehiya party
moved further to the right by assigning presumably safe
seats on its Knesset election list to three uncompromising
Elyakim Haetzni, Benny Katzover and Avi Farhan were
given the fifth, sixth, and seventh spots respectively.
Tehiya, which holds five seats in the present Knesset,
expects to win at least two more seats in the Nov. 1
elections. Opinion polls predict an especially strong
showing among younger voters, both soldiers and civilians.
Sixth Fleet To Train In Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel will soon be a training ground
for U.S. Navy airmen and Marines attached to the Sixth
Fleet, according to the fleet's commander.
Rear Admiral Kendall Moranville spoke in Haifa after a
week of joint exercises at sea with the Israel navy. "One of
the things we need is airplanes flying over land and that the
Marines can practice their skills on land," he said.
"I have been given assurances that this will happen in the
near future," the admiral added.
Israeli defense establishment sources refused to
comment. A spokesman said it was not Israel Defense
Force policy to discuss joint maneuvers.
Firms May Face Collapse
TEL AVIV (JTA) Several enterprises owned by the
Histadrut labor federation, including the daily newspaper
Davar, face possible collapse if measures are not taken
soon to reverse their financial problems, the federation's
comptroller general has warned.
Naftali Blumenthal issued the warnings in a report due to
be published Sunday, parts of which were obtained in
advance by the news media.
According to Blumenthal's report, major institutions in
impending danger include Davar, the Amal education
network, the Yakhin Git processing plant in Ashkelon and
the Phoenecias household goods factory in Haifa.
In addition, Blumenthal reported, the Hassneh Insurance
Company, Israel's largest, has accumulated losses of $52
East Germans Invite Chess Buff
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's senior chess coach, Yisrael
Galfer, has been invited to lecture in East Germany.
He will participate in a 10-day seminar on the contribu-
tions of chess to the development of science and culture,
Maariv reported Sunday.
The seminar opens Aug. 24. Galfer will be the first Israeli
to attend. Until now, the Communist regime has refused to
invite Israeli chess masters to compete in tournaments.

Bush Issues Pro-Israel Paper
Likely Republican presiden-
tial nominee George Bush has
adopted a campaign position
paper ca ling for
stronger U.S.- srael ties. In
some respects Bush's state-
ments go beyond pro-Israel
positions of the Reagan
Administration, several polit-
ical observers said. The paper
updates viewpoints similar to
those Bush outlined in a 1979
document when he challenged
Reagan for the 1980 GOP
Bush's new paper, written
by a panel of Middle East
experts and political activists
appointed by the Vice Presi-
dent, endorses the pre-
positioning of U.S. combat
equipment, spare parts and
ammunition in Israel, to be
used by either country in the
event of war. It also calls for
U.N. repeal of the 1975
General Assembly resolution
equating Zionism with racism
and says that failure of the
U.N. to comply would justify
reduction of U.S. support for
the world body by a Bush
Bush also opposes the crea-
tion of a new Palestinian Arab
state, calling it "inimical to the
security interests of Israel,
Jordan and the U.S."
The paper reiterates the
American pledge to walk out
of the U.N. if Israel is ejected.
"The United States believes
that promoting the security of
Israel and the pro-Western
Arab states offers the best
path to promoting peace and
stability in the Middle East,"
the paper begins.
Stressing Israel's status as a
"strategic ally to the United
States," the paper calls for the
continuation of security and
economic assistance to Israel.
It urges the expansion of mili-
tary cooperation between the
two nations including joint
exercises, intelligence sharing,
contingency planning and pre-
Bush pledges to "continue to
maintain Israel's qualitative
advantage over any adversary
or coalition of adversaries. '

Under Bush, the United.
States "will seek the assis-

tions where it will fit into a
free nation's own diplomacy.
But we will never allow the
United Nations or any other
multilateral institution to
place Israel's or America's
security at risk."
The Bush campaign believes
"the most hopeful course of
ending the anguish of the
Palestinians is to re-energize
the peace process. We recog-
nize that there will never be a
lasting peace in the area until
an equitable solution to the

A Successful Moshav
UJA Press Service
Established in the desert
without water and electricity,
and surrounded by hostile
Bedouin tribes, the story of
T'Kuma is similar to that of
dozens of settlements now
flourishing in Israel's arid
Negev desert. Its name,
meaning progress and
renewal, has been aptly born
out by its experience.
T'Kuma was born in 1948
with the State of Israel and,
along with it, experienced
hardships in its early days.
Through the dedication,
idealism and hard work of the
early pioneers, T'Kuma is
today one of the most
successful moshavim.
Although the moshav is now
independent, it was helped at
the start by the Jewish Agency
Settlement Department
funded primarily by the UJA/
Federation Campaign.
"Some 80 families make
their home on the moshav,"
Eli Reuven, moshav secretary
said, "most of whom earn their
living through agriculture.
Yitzhak, transporting barrels
on a mule-drawn wagon. Other
supplies, as well as mail, were
flown in by plane. We worked
on fortifications, did patrols,
and manned observation posts.
We earned our living guarding

"During the War of Inde-
pendence, we were stationed
on the front lines, opposite the
Egyptian army. During the
massive attack on Be'erot
Yitzhak, we were sent to aid in
its defense, and we lost a
comrade, our first, a 20-year-
old Holocaust survivor.
"After the War of Independ-
ence, we dreamed of estab-
lishing a religious workers'
moshav, the first in the Negev.
The place where we'd been
living, a tactical stronghold,
was unsuitable for building a
moshav, and we chose another
place on the Gaza-Beersheva
road. In 1951 several dozen
families and a number of
singles moved into the new
homes. New members joined,
and it seemed our dream was
being realized.
There isn't a single empty unit
and fully half of the units are
owned by second generation
Moshe Pines, a member of
the founding group, remem-
bers the moshav's more diffi-
cult days. T'Kuma was
founded by religious Palyam
(Palmach Navy) veterans.
They were joined by a group of
Holocaust survivors who had
recently arrived in Eretz
"Before we had time to
adjust to the enormous
changes in our lives," Pines
recalled, "we were ordered by

lems began right away: scar-

behind us. We worked ener-
getically and succeeded in
turning that unbearable situa-
tion around. We brought about Knpccot
a real reversal. I'm happy to
say that T'Kuma is now a
thriving, well-kept moshav
with an active community life
and every unit occupied."

Israel Voluntarism

Israel is no longer just a
recipient of funds abroad, but
has developed a rich culture of
voluntary organizations and
fund raising operations among
A new book, Voluntary
Work in Israel Theory and
Practice, published by Carta,
Jerusalem, maps the world of
voluntarism in Israel and
serves as a manual for those
voluntary organizations who
wish to maximize their efforts
for the benefit of the public.
The author/editor of the 650
page work is MK Dov Ben
Meir, Deputy Speaker of the
Knesset. In this monumental
work, Ben Meir reveals that
the volume of voluntary work
in Israel per capita, in terms of
time and money, is twice as
large as that of the United
Hundreds of organizations
covering the entire spectrum
of philanthropy and mutual
help in Israel are operating
now in this young State.
The book of voluntary work
in Israel was researched and
published with the funding of
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).
Heinz Eppler, President of
JDC, who participated in a
symposium at the Knesset to
discuss voluntarism in- Israel,
explained that JDC has a
unique role in Israel as a cata-
lyst of social changes. "The
culture of self-help and volun-
tarism is a sign of a mature
society. JDC, in serving the
ever changing needs of Israel,
is especially pleased to
enhance this culture," said

AJCommittee Urges Extra Aid To Refugees From The USSR
..______________ __ ____. ... ....... *** in. iL.i ii ...f*,;,1;,i,. r.i NEW YORK (JTA) -
Distressed that 3,000 Soviet
would-be emigres are stranded
in the USSR by cutbacks in the
U.S. government's financially
pressed refugee program, the
American Jewish Committee
has offered a three-point
program to "prevent a recur-
rence of this subordination of
humanitarian to budgetary
concerns in the future."
The program is contained in
an appeal made last week by
Theodore Ellenoff, AJCom-
mittee president, and Ira
Silverman, executive vice
president, to Secretary of
State George Shultz.
It calls on the Reagan admin-
istration, the State Depart-
ment and Congress to review
its process of budgeting U.S.
refugee and humanitarian
The U.S. Embassy in
Moscow announced that it had
run short of funds to continue
its refugee program, mainly
because of a surge of visa
requests from Armenians. The
suspension was to have lasted
until Oct. 1.
But after protests from
members of Congress and
Jewish organizations, the
State Department shook loose
an additional $500,000 from its
worldwide refugee budget to
enable the embassy to begin
processing 400 Soviets in
emergency situations and
provide "timely departure"
for an estimated 3,000 others
seeking U.S. visas.
On behalf of those 3,000 and
future applicants, AJCom-
mittee made these sugges-

Minister Margaret Thatcher
has appointed a favorite
Jewish politician of hers, Leon
Brittan, to be one of two
British members of the Euro-
pean Commission, the
governing body of the 12-
nation European Community
headquartered in Brussels.
In so doing, she may be
ending the political career of
Brittan, a former minister of
trade and industry in the
Thatcher Cabinet. European
commissioners may not sit as
members of Parliament.
But Thatcher is rehabili-
tating the 49-year-old Brittan,
who resigned ignominiously
three years ago at the height
of the so-called Westland heli-
copter scandal.
He quit, moreover, amid
anti-Semitic jibes from Conser-
vative Party backbenchers and
important sections of the
national press. Those
outbursts were believed
prompted by uneasiness over
the significant number of Jews
whom Thatcher has appointed
to high Cabinet office.
Brittan will replace Lord
Cockfield, 71, another former
Conservative minister, on the
commission. He apparently
has become too enthusiastic
about European integration
for Thatcher's liking.

his move would not affect
oolitical developments in the
region, Shamir suggested.
Shamir said the Jordanian
move confirms his belief that
Hussein has no influence on
the local population of the
West Bank.
Options for Peace
The premier also pointed to
what he termed "internal
conflict" in Hussein's speech:
The king supported the right
of self-determination of the
Palestinians in the West Bank,
Friday, August 12,1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 11
while denying the same right
to Palestinians living in
Shamir implied that on
either side of the Jordan River,
the Palestinians make a weak
case for statehood. He reiter-
ated his view that the only
reasonable way to peace is
within the framework of the
Camp David accords.
But during the same
program, Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres said that the
message that came across
from Hussein is that until elec-
tions are held in Israel on Nov.
1, "there are no options what-
soever for negotiations."
Asked whether the king's
latest move amounts to the
end of the "Jordanian option,"
Peres replied: "If there is no
Israeli option, what can the
king do?,f

'Israel's Situation Must Not Become Norm'
Rabin Warns Unrising Could Become Fact of Life
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin warned that the Pales-
tinian uprising, now in its
eighth month, is in danger of
becoming an accepted fact of
life here.
From Israel's viewpoint, the
situation is bearable, but it
must not come to be regarded
as the norm, Rabin said. Israeli
security forces are not
confronting a segment of a
society, but an entire society,
the defense minister said.
The tragedy of the confron-
tation is compounded by the
fact that so many of the
victims are young children,
killed or severely wounded by
the Israel Defense Force.
The latest of them is Suheir

The measure, sponsored by
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) and
adopted by voice vote as an
amendment to the State
Department's 1989 appropria-
tions bill, is intended to force a
future U.S. president to decide
whether to recognize Tel Aviv
or Jerusalem as Israel's
Israel has declared Jeru-
salem its capital. But the vast
majority of nations with whom
it has diplomatic relations,
including the United States,
maintain their embassies in
Tel Aviv.
Under the Senate bill, the
U.S. structures would have to
be designed in a way that
"equally preserves the ability
of the United States to locate
its ambassador or its consul
general at either site, consis-
tent with U.S. policy."
The amendment also
requires both structures to
open at the same time and
prevents the State Depart-
ment from announcing which
site will serve as the embassy
until construction on at least
one of the facilities is close to

The problem is that the IDF

to the ranking officer at the

The IDF does not claim that
every fatal shooting was justi-
fied. Soldiers have been
punished when found to have
used excessive force or to have
fired their weapons needlessly.
Rabin says the defense
establishment is striving to
reduce the level of violence.
The message Israel is trying to
send the Palestinians is that
they cannot avoid collective
punishment, as long as they do
not collectively restore law
and order.
Meanwhile, Israeli politi-
cians are trying to be upbeat
about the situation in an elec-
