Kook Favors
Rabbi Kahane

Rabbi Meir Kahane,
founder of the Jewish De-
fense League and leader
of Tnuat Kakh (Thus), has
been endorsed in his bid
for a Knesset seat by
_Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook,
son of the first Chief
Rabbi of Israel and the
spiritual leader of the
Gush Emunim.
Kook had been a
staunch supporter of the
National Religious Party
but broke with them in
1974 when they entered
the Rabin government
over his opposition.
The JDL leader, who
expressed delight with
this support, said he
plans to concentrate his
efforts to win a Knesset
seat by campaigning,
-among Kook's' folloivers.


the Premiership after the
May 17 elections.
Eban, a scholar and
probably the most
eloquent diplomat Israel
has produced, has no illu-
sions about his chances.
He lacks a constituency
within the Labor Party
whereas both Rabin and
Peres enjoy support from
powerful factions within
Most political analysts
believe — and Eban prob-
ably concedes it — that
the party would turn to
him for leadership only if
Rabin and Peres became
hopelessly deadlocked.
Yet Eban appears to
enjoy the campaign diol-
gue. 'At a press confer-
ence at - Sokolow House
last week he stressed not
his doveish views on
foreign policy but the re
forms he would institute
during his first year in of-
fice if elected premier.
Peres has also taken to
the hustings. He is speak-
ing and answering ques-
tions all over the country.
He recently spent sev-
eral hours with student
groups discussing his own
plans for internal reform.
He said he would
nate or reshuffle at least
six ministers — he did not
name them — and de-
clared that he wanted at
least one woman in the
Cabinet, a statement that
drew applause from the
women students.
He also said that a
Peres Cabinet would in-
clude a representative of
the new immigrant town-
ships and that he would
have a ministerial post
for Eban.
Peres insisted that a
Labor team under his


leadership would garner
more votes than one led by
In the meantime, the
Labor Party is trying de-
sparately to prevent the
defection from its ranks
of a powerful and influen-
tial group of Histadrut
industrialists — many of
them high-ranking re-
serve officers — which
seems about to join•orces
with Prof. Yigal Yadin's
new Democratic Move-
ment for Change.
The group, known as
the Histadrut Economic
Network, is headed b
Gen. (res.) Meir Amit, fo
nearly 10 years the direc-
tor general of Koor In-
dustries, the giant His-
tadrut conglomerate.
Other members include
Res. Gens. Tzvi Zamir,
former head of the army
security services and
presently director gen-
eral of the Haifa oil re-
fineries; Abraham
Botzer, former comman-
der of the Navy and now
director general of the
Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline






Also Col. Iska Shadmi, a
combat veteran who is di-
rector of a Koor sub-
sidiary; and Itzhak Raviv,
acting director of the Is-
rael Ports Authority.
Another member of the
group is David Golomb, a
prominent economist
employed by Koor.
Amit and his associates
have been conferring for
weeks with leaders of
Yadin's movement and
appear to be convinced
that the Labor Party, as
it is presently consti-
tuted, cannot effect the
internal reforms that Is-
rael urgently needs.
