_Israeli Diplomat Is Expelled

JERUSALEM JTA)
Israel's
Cabinet discussed Sunday, at its
weekly meeting, the Soviet govern-
ment's order, issued in Moscow
last w e e k e n d, expelling David
Gavish, second secretary of Is-
raeks embassy in the Soviet capi-
tal. on charges of "espionage."
er Prime Minister Levi Esh-
ported to the Cabinet about
evelopments in Moscow, the
government discussed concrete
steps for a reply to Moscow to
what circles here called "a Soviet
provocation which breaks normal
conventions covering diplomatic re-
lations between civilized nations.'!

notice of Gavish's expulsion was
received "with deep regret and
great surprise." The ministry was
very clear on the point that the
government rejects the Soviet
charge against Gavish.
Political circles here discern
several reasons for the Soviet gov-
ernment's action against Gavish.
- One motivation is the fact that,
each year, about the period pre-
- ceding the High Holy Days, the
Soviet government or press have
found occasions to smear Israel as
an offset to the pro-religious senti-
ts being stirred at that time
g Jews in Russia.
additional motivation seen
year was linked to the fact
that the Soviet Union is eager to
salve Syria's feelings. Syria failed
in the United Nations Security
Council a week and a half ago to
get a condemnation motion passed
against Israel in connection with
