responsible for the current eco-
nomic mess.
In other economic news, pro-
gress on the Lavie, Israel's
second-generation jet fighter
plane, ran into another obstacle
last week. The factory in the de-
velopment town of Beth Shemesh
which produces the Lavie engine
under an American license, is on
the verge of bankruptcy and may
shut down.
Elkana E. Caspi, board chair-
man of the factory, and its re-
cently appointed managing direc-
tor Ezra Yesodi resigned after the
workers council refused to accept
a management ultimatum. The
factory in Beth Shemesh, mid-
way between Tel Aviv and
Jerusalem reportedly has been
losing about $2 million a month.
It employs about a quarter of the
town'sz*ork force.
In Montreal, meanwhile,
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
told an audience of Canadian
Jews that curing Israel's economy
is the "most important task on the
agenda" of the unity government
and that if Diaspora Jews cannot
help Israel by aliyah, they should
help it through trade and invest-
ment.
Shamir, who is also Israel's De-
puty Premier, spoke to some 1,500
persons at a community rally
sponsored by seven major Cana-
dian Jewish organizations at
Cong. Shaar Hashomayim. It was
one of the major events of his six-
day official visit to Canada.
Shamir stressed that Israel
cannot be secure unless its
economy is healthy. The trade de-
ficit, he said, is especially danger-
ous, even more than galloping in-
flation. "We are asking our people
to make sacrifices in their salaries
and are cutting subsidies on many
commodities but it is not yet
enough. It is imperative that we
increase our exports."

Jerusalem (JTA) — Sparks flew
at Sunday's Cabinet meeting as
Labor and Likud ministers
clashed over the direction of the
country's economic policy.
The vituperative exchanges re-
flected not only the widening gap
between Labor and Likud, whose
marriage of convenience — the
national unity coalition govern-
ment — was precipitated by the
economic crisis, but tension over
external scrutiny of Israel's eco-
nomic affairs as well.
A top-level International
Monetary Fund (IMF) team has
completed a fact-finding visit and
two prominent American
economists just arrived to exam-
ine the state of Israel's financial
health in depth. According to ob-
servers, the report to be rendered
by the IMF could significantly af-
fect Israel's credit rating abroad
and the findings of the American
experts could, presumably, influ-
ence the Reagan Administration's
final decision on Israel's pending
emergency economic aid request.
Sunday's clash was triggered by
a proposal by Laborite Gad
Yaacobi, Minister of Economic
Planning, to exempt newly estab-
lished export-directed industries
from income tax for a - period of
several years. Finance Minister
Yitzhak Modai, a Likud Liberal
and Minister of Commerce and
Industry Ariel Sharon, of Likud's
Herut faction, protested vigor-
ously that tax proposals were be-
yond Yaaeobi's authority to make.
Sharon accused the Laborite of
interfering in his own area of re-
spnsibility. "Why don't you let me
get on with the work," he de-
manded. Yigal Hurwitz, of the
small Ometz faction, a
Minister-Without-Portfolio who
once served as Finance Minister
in a Likud government, sided
with Yaacobi. He blasted his
former party, declaring that
"everyone recognizes" Likud was

New York (JTA) —The director
of the Israeli film Beyond the
Walls, believes that if the movie
wins an Oscar this year the gates
of the international film market
will finally open for Israel.
"Winning the Academy Award
as the best foreign film for 1985
would represent a major break-
through for Israel's film indus-
try," said Uri Barbash, the 38-
year-old Isra!li director.
"An Oscar •would give the Is-
raeli film industry an instant in-
ternational recognition. More
movies will be made in Israel and
there will be more co-productions
of new films."
Barbash will take part in the
Academy Awards ceremony on
Monday. This is the third time
that an Israeli film is being con-
sidered for an Oscar as the best
foreign film. The two other films,
which did not win, were Sala
Shabati and I Love You. Rosa.
Beyond the Walls is about the
complex relationships between

Jewish and Arab prisoners in a
maximum security prison in Is-
rael. The tension, violence and
abuse of prison life are heightened
by the political difference be-
tween Arabs and Jews. But the
unfolding drama of racial and
political tension turns abruptly
into a story of cooperation and
human dignity.
The film has been a major suc-
cess in Israel. It won the Interna:
tional Critics Award of the Venice
Festival and was named best film
in Israel fOr 1984.
According to Barbash, more
than 600,000 Israelis have seen
Beyond the Wall, a record number
in a small country.
It has been controversial, how-
ever, raising charges by right-
wingers, such as Rabbi Meir
Kahane and his supporters, that
the film is pro-PLO and anti-
Israeli.
A few months ago Warner Bros.
decided to buy the rights for
world-wide distribution of the
film.
