Police Stationed in Zion Square After Terrorist Bomb Attack

mobile police station was
set up in Zion Square Sun-
day to maintain strict con-
trol over traffic in the after-
math of last week's bomb

explosion in downtown Je-
rusalem that took six lives.
It was the third terrorist
perpetrated blast in the
Zion Square area since last
July and the second to cause

fatalities. As a result, maxi-
mum precautionary mea-
sures have been instituted
and Police Minister Shlomo
Hillel asked the Cabinet to
approve additional security
Many of the 60 Arabs ar-
rested for questioning di-
rectly after the blast re-
main in detention. Police
conducted spot checks and
searches of all Arabs pass-
ing between East and West
Jerusalem. The mobile po-
lice station will remain in
Zion Square "until further
notice," police sources said.

Police had the addi-
tional task of preventing
hot-headed Jewish youths
from invading Arab quart-
ers for reprisals.

Meanwhile, 21 of the per-
sons injured in the explosion
remained hospitalized, four
of them reported to be in
poor condition. The death
toll, originally given as
seven, was revised to six
after the dead were identi-
fied. All were teen-agers:
Mahluf Baluki, 17; Malka
Cohen, 16; Leah Harari, 15;
Eliezer Karni, 17; and
Shlomo Deri, 16, all of Jeru-
salem; and Malka Nahum,
17, a resident of a moshav
outside the city.
Defense Minister Shimon

Peres, who publicly pro-
posed administrative auto-
nomy several weeks ago,
warned on a radio interview
that demonstrations and vi-
olence would solve nothing.
"Some Arabs are trying to
make it appear they will be
doing us a favor by manag-
ing their own affairs," Peres
said. "The Arabs must real-
ize they will achieve no real
solution by force, demon-
strations or threats."
Meanwhile, more than
200 of the almost 1,000
members of the UJA Koach
Mission now in Israel, con-
verged on Hadassah Hospi-
tal to donate blood in an im-
mediate response to last
week's act of terrorism in
the center of Jerusalem.
During the weekend, special
units were brought to the
Diplomat Hotel in Jerusa-
lem, where four rooms were
made available to enable the
rest of the Koach partici-
pants to donate their blood.

The young Jewish lead-
ers are in Israel to show
their solidarity with the
Jewish state. The mission
had been a year in prepa-
ration. The idea for it was
sparked by PLO chief Ya-
sir Arafat's address to the
UN last year, accoring to
UJA spokesman Rafi Bar-

The mission members
met with top Israeli officials
and with Israelis of all
walks of life to get an in-
depth and broad sweep view

tions, its achievements and
R. Alan Rudy, chairman
of the Young Leadership
Cabinet and leader of the
Koach Mission, spoke for
the entire group when he
stated, "This deeply per-
sonal demonstration of un-
ity and concern proves that
we are one . . . in strength,
in determination, in action.
This is the true meaning of

In a letter to Waldheim,
Bnai Brith President David
M. Blumberg said that the
bombing "underscores the
injustice and unwisdom" of
UN resolutions calling for
PLO participation in Middle
East peace conferences and
for a program to help estab-
lish a PLO sovereign state.
In Jerusalem, a bomb
went off in a bus last week.
No one was hurt. The bus
was damaged.
