the Middle East but is look-

are said to believe that the

Decision to Retain Sharon
Causes Liberal Party Split

split is developing in the
Liberal Party wing of Likud
over Sunday's Cabinet deci-
sion to retain former De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon
as a member of the Ministe-
rial Defense Committee.
A meeting of the Liberal
Party Knesset caucus was
demanded by former
Cabinet Minister Yitzhak
Berman to hear from Liber-
als sitting in the Cabinet as
to why they failed to oppose
Premier Menahem Begin's
proposal to keep Sharon on
the key committees.
Sharon was forced to re-
sign as defense minister as a
result of the findings of the
commission of inquiry into
the Beirut refugee camps
massacre which the Cabinet
accepted in full.
Berman, a former
energy minister, an-
nounced that when the
issue of Sharon's contin-
ued membership on the
Defense Committee is
raised in the Knesset ple-
nary he would vote with-
the opposition.
Another Liberal MK,
Dror Seigerman, said he
would do the same. The de-
cision to retain Sharon was
adopted by the Cabinet at
Begin's insistence. The vote
was 6-1. A number of minis-
ters abstained.
Begin's position surprised
observers inasmuch as it
was assumed that he was
not averse to seeing Sharon
