and many of his fellow ministers
to hold the price rises in abeyance
until after Passover. Deputy
Premier David Levy spoke of
"streamA of housewives" jamming
supermarkets Saturday night to
make their holiday purchase be-
fore the new prices took effect.
The new package deal was
adopted in the course of a grueling
debate in the Knesset over the
new national budget which began
last week and ended in the early
hours of Friday morning. The
bleary-eyed lawmakers finally
agreed to a budget of 20.2 trillion
shekels (about $23 billion) for the
1985-1986 fiscal year which
started Monday.
The debate which kept the
Knesset in session three days be-
yond its scheduled adjournment
for spring recess, was marked by
acrimonius wrangling with the
various Orthodox parties over al-
locations for their religious in-
stitutions. The Labor Ministry
also demanded increased funds
for Kupat Holim, the Histadrut
sick fund.

Ireland's Jews Fought
Against Menten's Return

Jerusalem (JTA) — The prices
of hundreds of goods and services
went up by 10-15 percent as of
Monday as the Treasury intro-
duced a new economic package
deal approved last week by the
government, business and the
Histadrut.
The new plan was put into effect
immediately at the insistence of
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai
and the Employers Association,
despite strong opposition from
many ministers and labor who
argued that consumers should not
be faced with higher prices barely
a week before the start of the
Passover holidays.
But Modai and his aides in-
sisted that the Treasury could no
longer sustain its subsidies of
foodstuffs and other items in face
of a rapidly declining shekel.
The Employers Association
threatened to pull out of the deal if
there was delay in implementing
the price hikes. They said they
had agreed to the package with
the understanding that the first
round of price increases would be-
come effective immediately. A
week ago, the government hiked
the price of petrol and other fuels
by 13 percent.
The package deal calls for price
rises now, a two-month freeze at
the new level, to be followed by a
second round of increases and an-
other freeze. It replaces the
wage-price freeze package insti-
tuted last January which had only
limited success.
Subsidies continued to drain
the Treasury and inflation soared
by 13.5 percent in February com-
pared to only a five percent rise
the previous month. The new
package has been called —
euphemistically — a "reinterpre-
tation" of the one it replaced.
Modai was determined to ig-
nore the protests by Histadrut

Dublin — A sense of relief is
sweeping the 2,000 Jews of the
Irish Republic after the govern-
ment's ban of Pieter Menten, the
85-year-old Dutch millionnaire
found guilty of slaughtering Jews
in Poland in 1941. Menten owns a
big estate near the city of
Waterford and was planning to
spend the rest of his life there
after serving eight years out of a
10-year sentence in a Dutch
prison.
But on March 21, following
strenous protests by the Dublin
Jewish representative council
backed by a handful of Jewish
members of the Irish Parliament,
the Irish Cabinet declared Men-
ten an undesirable alien and pro-
hibited him from entering the
Emerald Isle.
The decision demonstrates the
new-found confidence of Irish
Jewry, the change which has
overcome the Irish people's ap-
praisal of World War II, as well as
Ireland's sensitivity to interna-
tional public. opinion now that it is

a full-fledged member of the
European Economic Community.

It may have also been connected
with the fact that Ireland is
shortly to pay host to Israel's
Irish-born president, Chaim Her-
zog, and its healthy respect for
Jewish public opinion in the
United States.

Menten was first arrested in
Holland in 1948 but released a
year later after successfully ap-
pealng against a conviction of col-
laborating with the Nazis. Sub-
sequently, Holland turned down
requests for his extradition by Po-
land, the Soviet Union and Israel.

In 1976, he left Holland secretly
the day before his re-arrest was
ordered following new allegations
about his 1941 activities in Po-
land. Brought back to Amster-
dam, he stood trial in May 1977
and was found guilty of complicity
in the murder of 100 Jews, includ-
ing women and children, in
August 1941 near Lvov.
