French Elections Ease Fears

By EDWIN EYTAN

PARIS (JTA) — The
center-right coalition which
has governed France for the
last 20 years was returned
to power March 19, beating
the Socialist-Communist al-
liance and ensuring a con-
tinuation of France's tradi-
tional policy in the Middle
East.
Though France, under a
Gaullist leadership and
three consecutive presi-
dents, has practiced a gen-
erally pro-Arab and anti-
Israel policy, many obser-
vers feared that a
Socialist-Communist re-
gime would be even more
biased against Israel.
The current coalition, led
by Premier Raymond Barre,
won a majority of 89 seats in
the 491-strong National As-
sembly. Political circles
speculate, however, that
President Valery Giscard
d'Estaing will appoint
Jewish Health Minister
Sitnone Veil as his succes-
sor.
Mrs. Veil, a 50-year-old
former Auschwitz depor-
tee, is considered a lib-
eral likely to renew links
with certain Socialists.
Public opinion polls de-
scribe her as France's
most popular public fi-
gure. There has been no
confirmation from offi-

cial sources as to Gis-

card's plan to appoint
Mrs. Veil.
Several of Israel's best
friends were re-elected.
Among them is Paris Gaul-
list Claude Gerard Marcus;
Nice Mayor Jacques Mede-
din, and Paris Christian
Democrat, Gen. Whislain de
Benouville.
Several Jews were also
elected. Among them are
the former junior minister
in charge of overseas ter-
ritories, Olivier Stirn; and
Jean-Pierre Bloch, an
Elysee aide to President
Giscard d'Estaing.
Another Jewish junior
minister, Lionel Stoleru,
deputy secretary of labor,
was beaten by a Socialist.
Among those beaten is
Jacques Soustelle, a
former minister and one
of Israel's best friends in
France.
Also defeated, however,
were several public figures
who generally espouse the
Arab cause. Among them is
Gaullist Raymond Offroy,
president of the European
Parliamentary Commission
of Friendship with the Arab
States, and Socialists Lionel
Jospin and Georges Sarre,
also described as friendly to
the Palestinians.

WZO Dept. Split

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The World Zionist Organi-
zation Executive has de-
cided to divide the WZO or-
ganization and information
department.
Avraham Schenker was
temporarily appointed head
of the organization depart-
ment and Eli Eyal was ap-
pointed temporary head of
the information depart-
ment. The appointments
are effective until April 11,
when the Jewish Agency
Board of Governors con-
venes to discuss permanent
appointments.
The major issue to be dis-
cussed by the board is the
appointment of a new trea-
surer. The Likud candidate
is Deputy Minister Yoram
Aridor. The Labor Aligh-
ment insists on Akiva Lev-
nisky.

BUCHAREST (JTA) —
The reconstruction of
Bucharest's main
synagogue, the Choral
Temple, has been concluded

synagogue damaged during
last year's earthquake will

Communities in Romania

synagogues in Bucharest,
Malbim and Eshuvatova,
have also been restored. The
cost of restoration was esti-

No Panacea

CAIRO (ZINS) — The
military correspondent for
Haaretz, Zeev Schiff, has
written that Egypt is far
more concerned with its
economic problems than its
casualties in wars with Is-
rael.
He says the population is
obsessed with the idea that
peace will solve their prob-
lems, which have not been
caused by war but by a huge
population increase, lack of
raw materials and poor ad-
ministration.
