Arab Mayors Rescind Resignations as Violence Subsides

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Some
West Bank mayors who re-
signed during the past three
weeks, are trying to strike a
bargain with Israeli author-
ities. Haj Maazouz El-Mas-
rihmet, the mayor of Na-
blus, the largest West Bank
town, reportedly offered to
withdraw his resignation if
Israeli military forces are
thinned out and the curfews
in Ramallah and El-Birch
are lifted.
But the military governor
reportedly insisted that the

mayor withdraw his resig-
nationwith no pre-condi-
tions.
Shops in Nabulus have
remained closed for five
straight days. The mayor
said he might be able to per-
suade the merchants to re-
open. The mayor of Jenin,
who also resigned some
weeks ago, is promising to
restore normal life and or-
der in that town. Some Is-
raeli troops have been with-
drawn.
There were indications,
meanwhile, that Jordan is
as interested as Israel in
ending the wave of dis-
turbances and demonstra-
tions on the West Bank.
Aman's motives coincide
at least in part with those
of Israel — to check the in-
fluence of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Jordania-n authorities
have called on West Bank
leaders loyal to King Hus-
sein to try to cool the situa-
tion as the date for West

approaches.

ment and the Justice Minis-
try have received a unani-
mous appeal from the
Netherlands Council of
Churches to release the last
three German war crimi-
nals imprisoned in Holland
on humanitarian grounds.
The government has not yet
responded.
The church group based
its appeal on the argument
that punishment should not
have the character of per-
manent vengeance and that
the - three prisoners were
now physical wrecks.
They said that the argu-
ment made four years ago
that freeing the Nazi war
a criminals would cause men-
tal suffering to their surviv-
a ing victims, no longer ap-
cr plied because there was now
a psychiatric clinic headed
trt
by Prof. Johann Bastiaans
0
which was established for
0 the purpose of helping the
victims of Nazi war crimes.
When the appeal was
made on behalf of the war
criminals in 1972, the gov-
ernment promised it would
not release the prisoners
without prior consultation
with Parliame-ht and with
the various Dutch resist-
ance organizations.
The resistance groups,
Jewish congregations and
Communist spokesmen have
all reacted sharply against
the Council of Churches'
appeal:

of the most moderate West
Bank leaders. He is close to
King Hussein of :Jordan and
has had cordial relations
with Israeli authorities. His
decision to stand for re-elec-
tion in the West Bank muni-
cipal elections April 12,
raised hopes here that mod-
erates might prevail over
pro-PLO militants..

Kiryat Arba residents w-ho
protested the restraining
order imp6Sed by the mili-
tary government on their
leader, Rabbi Moshe Levin-
ge•, which prevents him
from entering the Machpela
Cave, the Patriarchs' Tomb
in Hebron. Levinger faces
possible prosecution for in-
citement to violence because
he exhorted Kiryat Arba
residents on a television in-
terview last week to "shoot
to kill" if they were men-
aced by Arabs.
The Israeli Cabinet,

mayors and town council-

danian laws which have
been retained by the Israeli
administration.
Sheikh Mohammed All el-
Jabaari, the mayor of He-
bron, announced that he
would withdraw his resig-
nation tendered over the
weekend.
He also pledged, at a
meeting with Defense Min-
ister Shimon Peres, to use
his influence to restore or-
der in Hebron. Peres prom-
ised, for his part, that Is-
raeli police and security
forces would keep a low pro-
file in Hebron, the largest
.city in the Judaea region of
the West Bank.
Jabaari's decision was
welcomed in Israeli circles
as a possible turning point
in the recent wave of vio-
lence and demonstrations
on the West Bank.
Jabaari is regarded as one

unanimous in its criticism
of the Israeli hews media's
coverage of events on the
West Bank.
In a related development,•
an Israeli soldier has been
remanded in custody for
allegedly firing shots that
wounded three Arab young-
sters, one of them critically,
in an incident on the Jerusa-
lem-Jericho road last week.
The Defense 11iiinistry an-
nounced that it would con-
tinue its policy of ensuring
security and essential civil-
ian services on the West
Bank but would not inter-
fere in strikes if they were
conducted peacefully. "We
will guarantee water sup-
plies and garbage collection,
but if the local people want
to close their shops or
schools that is their affair,"
a Ministry source said.
