According to the police,
they are marking time on
arrests "out of consideration
for the investigation." Par-
ticipants in the Peace Now
demonstration, held to de-
mand the dismissal of De-
fense Minister Ariel Sha-
ron, have reportedly iden-
tified photographs of sev-
eral persons who harassed
them during their rally.
Supporters of Sharon
were holding a----counter-
demonstration a short dis-
tance away at the time.
Meanwhile, the Shin
Bet, Israel's general se-
curity service, has joined
the investigation, provid-
ing teams of investigators
said to be experienced in
"complex cases."

Dr. to Report
on Disorder

Dr. Joel S. Dreyer of
Southfield will present a
paper Saturday in Cincin-
nati to the American
Academy of Forensic Sci-
ences on Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder.
The diagnosis, used
primarily in relation to Vie-
tnam veterans, explains
radical behavior of the vete-
rans after they return home
in relation to their Vietnam
training and experinces.
The disorder was used as
mitigating circumstances
in the 1981 shooting death
of a man by Scott Kalmbach
of Hazel Park. Dr. Dryer
says there are hundreds of
such cases throughout the
U.S. which the disorder
helps to explain.

tack was identified as Emil
Grunzweig, a 33-year-old
immigrant from Czechos-
lovakia and mathematics
teacher at the Van Leer In-
stitute in Jerusalem.
Thousands attended his
funeral Friday.
Five others were hos-
pitalized, including Av-
raham Burg, son of Interior
Minister Yosef Burg, a lead-
ing Peace Now Activist.
One demonstrator, Yehos-
hua Shkedi, a 26-year-old
student, was seriously
wounded and operated on
for eight hours by doctors at
the Hadassah Medical Cen-
ter. He was reported in
stable condition. Three
others were hospitalized.

Meanwhile, police at-
tempted to piece together
the events leading to the at-
tack. Authorities found the
safety catch of the Israeli-
made grenade and the
cardboard wrapping in
which it was stored. The
grenade was hidden in a
hollow electricity pole
which was lying in the area
of the demonstrators.
The remains of the gre-
nade were found on a hill
across the street from the
premier's office, some 300
meters northeast of the
building. The hill served
the pro-government
demonstrated at the foot
of the hill closer to the
street. According to
eye-witnesses, a shout
was heard "Now," and
then the explosion fol-
This is one of the indica-
tions which have led police
to- the assumption that the
attack was not a one-man
initiative, but rather the
work of several people. A
special investigation team

has been established and is
now trying to locate an un-
identified man who was
threatening the demon-
strators and others who did
According to one witness
to the attack, a tall uniden-
tified man followed the
Peace Now demonstrators
on their way from
downtown Jerusalem to the
premier's office, threaten-
ing the demonstrators that
this was "their last day."
The news director of
Maariv said he received a
telephone call from a man
who identified himself as a
lecturer at the Hebrew Uni-
versity and said he had been
the person who gave the
order to throw the grenade.
Maariv reported that
the man, who sounded
quiet, controlled and ar-
ticulate, said the target of
the grenade was Gen.
(res.) Mati Peled who last
month met with PLO
chief Yasir Arafat, but in
his absence from the
demonstration, the gre-
nade was aimed at Av-
raham Burg.

Police also interrogated
Rabbi Meir Kahane, leader
of the ultra-nationalist
Kach movement, and said
he was asked to supply the
names of his followers who
participated in the pro-
government demonstration.
Kahane denied any re-
sponsibility for the attack,
condemned such "crimes,"
but said that the Peace Now
movement and other leftist
movements should be
fought because they stab
the nation "in the heart and
in the back."

angry shouts erupted from
the crowd when Ashkenazic
