. Jerusalem (JTA) — There
were rowdy scenes in the Knes-
set last week arid the two religi-
ous members were rejected by
the speaker during Agudat Is-
rael's non-confidence debate on
the Mornion University Center
in Jerusalem.
The. motion was as expected,
defeated. The Aguda MKs, Rab-
bis Avraham Shapiro and
Menachem Porush, were joined
by only three other MKs in sup-
port of the motion: Eliezer
Waldman and Gershon Shafat of
Tehiya and Avraham Werdiger
of Morasha. Other members of
Tehiya and Morasha abstained,
Shas did not participate.
It - was clear from the outset
that the two-man Aguda faction
would receive almost no support
for its motion, and that the coal-
ition was in no danger.
Nevertheless, Aguda's two MKs
and others from the religious
parties maintained a racous
cacophony during the govern-
ment reply, delivered by Energy
Minister Moshe Shahal
Eventually, the Deputy
Speaker, Aaron Nahmias, or-
dered ushers to escort Werdiger
of Morasha and Porush of
Aguda out of the chamber.
Porush, winding up the debate
for Aguda, announced that his
party would not leave the coali-
tion, triggering angry comments
from 'Mapam leader Elazar
There was a question among
Knesset .members and par-
liamentary observers as to
whether Aguda would be forced
to quit the unity coalition gov-
ernment because it has tabled a
non-confidence motion. The. law
—. the "government discipline
law (1962) — is unclear on this
precise point because Aguda,
while a partner in the coalition,
has no minister in the cabinet.
The wording of the law refers


only to coalition parties which
have Cabinet Ministers — the
usual case — and forbids them
to present no-confidence motions
on pain of forfeiting their coali-
tion membership.
Shapiro, who spoke for Aguda
from the rostrum, maintained
that the motion was "a protest"
by his party, implying that
Aguda wanted to get away with
tabling the motion and staying
subsequently inside the coalition

But Shahal, a lawyer by pro-
fession, asserted in his reply
that Aguda could not have it
both ways.
Nevertheless many observers
predicted that Premier Peres,
the Labor Party leader, would
engineer matters so that Aguda
might remain in the coalition.
He is said to be anxious not to
cut his links to the party — in
case a future downfall of the
unity government necessitates
his wooing Aguda and other re-
ligions parties into a narrow
Shapiro charged that while
the unity government, in its 16
months in office, had done a
great deal on the economic front
and on the Lebanon front it had
"done nothing for the Al-
The Brigham Young Univer-
sity Center going up on Mt.
Scopus, "opposite the Temple
Mount," as Shapiro pointed out,
was "neither a church nor a
university" — to neither of
which institutions he objected. It
was a center whose purpose was
to lead, Jews away from their
faith, he asserted.
Shapiro is understood to have
gone ahead with the no-
confidence motion at the specific
behest of his spiritual mentor,
the aged Chassidic Rebbe of
Gur, Rabbi Simcha Binum Ah
Other spiritu0 leaders have


been less certain about forcing a
crisis over this issue, and Rabbi
Eliezer Shach of Bnei Brak is
reported to have instructed-
Shas,' four MKs to stay out of
the chamber •during the vote.
Shahal in his reply said Shap-
iro was_voicing no-confidence "in
the wrong government." It was
the previous, Likud-led govern-
ment that had .given all the re-
quisite licenses and approval for
BYU to construct its center.
Shahal referred to the Cabinet
decision to set up a Ministerial
committee under relgious affairs
Minister Dr. Yosef Burg to
monitor the center. And he
vowed that the extant anti-
missionary legislation would be
applied instantly and forcefully
if any attempts at missionizing
came to light.
Shahal said that with all the
licences having been issued leg-
ally it was too late now to cease
the building work.
Aguda, and the other religious
parties, are demanding that the
work stop while the Burg
ministerial committee deliberate
on the matter. But Educational
Minister Yitzhak Navon (Labor)
is at the head of a strong group
of Ministers wilco oppose that op-
tion and insist that the work
proceed at the site.
