stricted information he
gives to his own cabinet be-
cause of the leaks.
Zadok said thePremier
would set up a panel of ex-
perts, including secret serv-
ice and military intelligence
personnel, to investigate the
leaks and recommend mea-
sures to stop them. But Za-
dok reminded the MKs of
tough laws already on the
statute books that provide
prosecution and punish-
ment for persons found re-
sponsible for leaking classi-
fied material.
One measure to be con-
sidered, he said, was an
ordinance providing. that
sensitive political infor-
mation, such as the recent
message from President
Ford to Rabin, deploring
the new settlements on the
Golan Heights, be classi-
fied as military secrets
with a penalty of up to 15
year's in jail for leaking
such material.
Zadok said the wave of
leaks from the Cabinet
chamber resulted-in deci-
sion-making being removed

be abig to express them-
selves freely, Zadok ob-
served. But they were inhib-
ited by the possibility of
leaks, he said.
Zadok's observations were
similar to those of Haim
Landau of Likud and Avra-
ham Melamed of the Na-
tional Religious Party who
presented agenda motions
decrying the recent spate of
leaks.

Blaze Hits Israeli Newspaper

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Four
Tel Aviv youths were or-
dered jailed by a local mag-
istrate as prime suspects in
a fire Jan. 2 that caused an
estimated $2 million dam-
age to the Haaretz newspa-
per plant and several adja-
cent buildings.
The fire, the worst in Tel
Aviv's history, took 30 hours
to bring under control and
sent four fireMen to the hos-
Taal for treatment for
smoke inhalation.
The police and fire-fight-
ing authorities appear con-
vinced, that the fire was a
clear case of arson and link
it to the extortion racket
that has been flourishing in
Israeli cities. They have dis-
counted terrorist responsi-
bility despite a claim by the
Palestinian news agency
Wafa in Beirut that terror-
ists had planted explosives
in the Haaretz building.

Haaretz, Israel's leading
morning newspaper, re-
cently published a series
of articles on the protec-
tion racket. Despite the
severe damage and the
flooding of its press room,
the paper continued to
publish without interrup-
tion utilizing the plants
and office facilities made
available to it by the dai-
lies Davar and Yediot
Achronot.

In addition to gutting the
Haaretz basement, it caused
severe damage to adjacent
shops and factories, includ-
ing an underground emer-
gency store room of the Red
Magen David Society, Is-
rael's Red Cross.
Meanwhile, Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin has decided to
become personally involved
in efforts to eliminate the
protection racket that is
preying on merchants in
Israel's large cities. Rabin
revealed his intention at a
Cabinet session after Wel-
fare Minister Zevulun Ham-
mer said the phenomenon is
growing and needs increas-
ing police resources to curb
it.
Police Minister Shlomo

Hillel, who last week said
the police could not control
the racket because the vic-
tims were 'afraid to talk,
told the Cabinet that the
police are trying to elimi-
nate the racket.
The protection racket has •
been receiving more public
attention with the increas-
ing violent incidents that
have occurred. The existence
of an extensive network of
extortionists in _Haifa came
to light recently after an
incidence of violence during
which a hand grenade was
tossed into a local vegetable
market.

Israel Thanked
for Vote at UN

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Chaim Herzog, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, said
in a telephone interview
from San Juan, Puerto Rico,
that the Governor of the
Virgin Islands, Cyril King,
has publicly thanked Israel
for voting along with the
United States against a UN
General Assembly resolu-
tion condemning the "im-
perialistic" U.S. military
presence in the Virgin Is-
lands.
The resolution, adopted
earlier this month by a vote
of 108-3, called upon "co-
lonial powers to withdraw
immediately and uncondi-
tionally from their military
bases and installations from
colonial territories and to
refrain from establishing
new ones." The third coun-
try voting against the reso-
lution was Nicaragua.
Herzog, who stopped in
San Juan on his way back
from the Virgin Islands to
the U.S., said he addressed
some 300 members of the
Jewish community of St.
Thomas last week at a gath-
ering for the United Jewish
Appeal.
Among those attending
was King. According to Her-
zog, the gathering was the
largest in the history of the
Jewish community.
