of Knesset Lists

.JERUSALEM (JTA) — With na-
tional elections barely a month
away, politicians of all factions are
scrambling to get their, names in
the "safe spots" near the top of
their respective party lists which
will assure them of seats in the
Knesset under Israel's system of
proportional representation.

Many old timers, however, are
bucking a trend which is to give
priority positions to young candi-
dates. Several cabinet minister,
may be affected by the quest for
new faces." It is already known
that one veteran minister. Morde-
cai ben Tov of Mapam, is not
running and would be replaced by
a new man in the Knesset. But an-
other veteran, Minister of Health
Israel Barzilai, would continue to
represent Mapam in the cabinet.

JERUSALEM (.JTA) — The soe•
cial committee investigating the
Aug. 21 Al Aksa mosque fire sub-
mitted its report to Premier Gol
da Meir Monday. Its contents will
not be made public until Mrs. Meir
returns from her official visit to
the U.S. next month. Sections of the
report which might incriminate the
suspected arsonist. Denis Michael
William Rohen, will be withheld
until after his trial.

Repairs to the fire-damaged
wing of the mosque began under
the supervision of an Egyptian en-
gineer, JTA learned from reliable
sources. He is Abdul Moneim Ab-
dul Wahab who served as ar•hitee-
turat supervisor of the mosque
during the Jordanian occupation of
EasUJerusalem. He did not return
to Cairo until some time after the
Six-Day War. Israeli security au-
thorities are said to have raised
no objections to his return to super-
vise the repair work.

However, cabinet ministers are
not required to be Knesset mem-
bers except for the prime min-
ister. As a result, several cabinet
ministers will not run for re-
election, thereby making room
for "young blood" on their party
lists without necessarily risking
their cabinet posts.

Meanwhile, the various parties
in the Jerusalem municipal elec-
tions are making strenuous efforts
to get East Jerusalem Arabs to
appear as candidates on their lists.
So far without much success. The
Arabs, either for perSanal reasons
or under pressure from anti-Israel
militants, have rejected invitations
for their candidacy. Some Arabs
who filed for election have with-
drawn their names. Municipal au-
thorities are trying ;to persuade
East Jerusalem Arabs to set up
their own independent lists before
the Sunday deadline.
