Sports Diplomacy: Israel, Egypt
Prepare for International Game

(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)
CAIRO — A group of

mediators, selected by both
the Israel Basketball Fed-
eration and the Egyptian
Federation to discuss ways
and means of establishing a
basketball relationship be-
tween the two countries,
met here several times dur-
ing the week of Feb. 18-23
with Egyptian hoop offi-
cials. Considerable progress
was made in the establish-
ment of what should be, ul-
timately, a good relation-
ship in basketball between
the two countries involved.
Prior to coming to Egypt,
as one of the mediators, I
met with Fouad Abdul
Kheir, the technical direc-
tor for basketball in the
Egyptian Basketball Fed-
eration. Abdul Kheir was a
member of the group of
Alexandria Jews who were
granted permission to come
and visit their relatives in
the state of Israel. His wife
is Jewish and hadn't seen
her parents in 25 years, so
that it was a reunion be-
tween the couple and her
parents and it also gave the
Egyptian basketball official
the opportunity to watch
the European Cup Game be-
tween Israel and the Yugos-
At our first meeting I pro-
posed several ideas which
would gradually build up to
an ultimate game, possibly
to be held in Madison
Square Garden, during the
spring or fall of 1981. After
a second lengthy luncheon
session, the following was
resolved so far as the possi-
bility of a relationship be-
tween Israel and Ezvat:
Knowing full well that
Israel is much stronger
than Egypt right now in
basketball, the local Fed-
eration people felt that it
would be unfair for them
to get involved _im-
mediately in a game be-
tween the two national
teams. It was the consen-
sus of opinion that the
game should be a culmi-
nation of several prior
ideas which would build
up confidence in the
Egyptian basketball pub-
lic in the proposed affilia-
tion, and give the Egyp-
tian Federation time to
produce a team which
might be able to give the
Israelis a contest.
The mediators agreed to
the following: The Egyptian
Federation agreed to send
six coaches to the Dial Bas-
ketball Clinic which will be
held at Kutsher's Country
Club in Monticello, N.Y. on
June 22-26. At the same
time, the Israel Basketball
Federation will send six
coaches and it was agreed
that the respective coaches
from the two countries
would mingle and share the
same quarters and discuss
basketball matters for the
course of the clinic.
After the conclusion of
the clinic, the Egyptian
coaches then would be
placed in instructive posi-
tions in the Kutsher's

Sports Academy where they
would work with college
and high school coaches in
teaching the youngsters
attending the camp. This
will go on for a period of two
weeks, after which the
group will return to Egypt.
A top-flight college coach
will be sent to Egypt for the
period June 15-Sept. 1 in
order to instruct the Na-
tional Team, the Junior Na-
tional Team, and the Girl's
National Team.

A top-flight girl's coach
will go to Egypt for a
three-month period start-
ing in September to help
prepare the Egyptian
Girl's National Team for
the African Cham-
pionships which will be
held in December.
A junior tournament
should be held during the
Christmas vacation period
in Alexandria where four
teams, one Egyptian, one
Israeli, and two American
junior teams would partici-
pate. After the conclusion of

the tournament the four
teams then would move to
Tel Aviv where a similar
tournament would be held.
A U.S. college team will
come to Egypt, possibly in
the spring of 1981, in order
to participate in a four-team
tournament which would
involve either Israel's na-
tional team or a top flight
Israeli club team like Mac-
cabi Tel Aviv or Hapo1"
Aviv, and the two
Egyptian club teams. ne
schedule then called for all
four teams to move on to Is-
rael for a repetition of this
The carrying out of this
ambitious program will de-
pend, of course on the nor-
malization of conditions in
general between Egypt and
Israel. If all goes smoothly,
the program will culminate
in a game between the
Egyptian and Israeli Na-
tional teams which would,
in all probability, be played
in the United States before

Moshe Dayan Joined Likud
in Order to Influence Begin

two years Moshe Dayan re-
fused to divulge his reasons
for joining the Begin gov-
ernment and consistently
avoided discussing the sub-
ject. Now, after he resigned,
he revealed the secret.
According to an article in
Yediot Ahronot, Dayan
rationalized that his deci-
sion to join the Likud
Cabinet stemmed from his
conviction that he could ac-
complish something that
others thought impossible,
namely to change Menahem
Begin and to influence him
to take steps which Begin
previously would never
have dreamed taking.
Dayan believed that
there would be a great dif-
ference between Begin as

opposition leader and Begin
as the prime minister.
Dayan was also convinced
that Begin would be able to
venture doing what no other
prime minister had been
able to do, to make far
reaching concessions for the
price of peace. Dayan pro-
ved to have been vindicated
during the peace negotia-
tions between Israel and
Dayan also believed that
the new Begin" would be
ready for further corn-
promises regarding Judea,
Samaria and the Gaza
Strip. When he became con-
vinced that in that area
Begin remained unyielding,
the former Foreign Minister
decided to draw the conclus-
ion that led to his resigna-

Yadlin Charges Labor Party
With Siphoning Israel Funds

Asher Yadlin, the former
head of the Histadrut's huge
Kupat Holim sick fund, a
nominee for the post of gov-
ernor of the Bank of Israel,
and a leading Labor Party
figure, has just finished
serving 41 months in prison
out of a five-year term for
Yadlin has come out with
a variety of charges against
farmer Labor Party col-
leagues. The charges ap-
peared in Yediot Ahronot,
in the first serialized ex-
cerpts of his book "Tes-
He claimed that state
funds "were the main source
of income for Labor. The
methods of transferring the
funds were round-about and
the state paid three pounds
for every pound which
reached the party." In an-
other incident, Yadlin
wrote, the Treasury paid a

Histadrut company a
interest rate on money
owed, and the difference
went to the Labor Party.
A full chapter is devoted
to the late Golda M-
entitled The Lady
Hayarkon Street." He re-
ports attempts by two de-
ceased finance ministers —
Pinhas Sapir and Yehc a
Rabinowitz — to con
him to sell choice Kupat
Holim property on Shdeirot
David Hamelech, because
Golda wanted to establish a
music conservatory on that
site to be run by her cellist
son, Menahem.
