Weizman Tries To Arrange
Summit Talk With Mubarak

Jerusalem (JTA) — Ezer
Weizman met with President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt in
Cairo last Sunday. He flew there
secretly on a special mission, the
purpose of which was not
disclosed but is believed to be an
urgent attempt to arrange a
summit meeting between
Mubarak and Prime Minister
Shimon Peres.
Weizman, a Minister-With-
out-Portfolio attached to the
Prime Minister's Office, was ac-
companied by Gen. (Res.)
Avraham Tamir, Director Gen-
eral of the Prime Minister's Of-
fice who has been closely involv-
ed in recent xigotiations
with
ivi
Egypt. Their t '13 was approved
by Peres, Forei Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir anc\Defense Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin-:\
Weizman and Tamir were
reportedly joined by Israel's
Ambassador to Egypt, Moshe
Sasson, at their session with
Mubarak. Weizman, who has
had close contacts with Egyp-
tian officials since his participa-
tion in the Camp David talks
seven years ago, is said to fear
that unless a Peres-Mubarak
summit takes place soon, the en-
tire peace process could be in
jeopardy. Peres is believed to
share this view.
Israel's cool relations with
Egypt were further strained by
the unenthusiastic reception
give in Cairo to Israel's offer of
a package deal to settle the
Taba border dispute by interna-
tional arbitration — as Egypt
has demanded — and move at
the same time to revive the stall-
ed process of normalization bet-

ween the two countries. The
Egyptians insist that a summit
date can be set only after a date
is set for arbitration to begin.
They infuriated many Israelis
by flatly refusing to give Israel
the report of the special commis-
sion set up to investigate the
murder of seven Israeli tourists
by an Egyptian soldier at Ras
Burka in eastern Sinai last Oc-
tober 1.
Weizman reportedly tele-
phoned Mubarak over the
worsening situation and was
told by the Egyptian leader that
he had an open invitation to
visit Cairo. Weizman is also said
to have informed Mubarak he
would keep his visit secret lest
it be jeopardized by elements of
Likud. Likud circles in fact
openly criticized their party
leader, Shamir, for approving
Weizman's trip.
The urgency of his visit was
underlined by the fact that
Tamir, in effect a personal
emissary of Peres, flew in from
Europe where he had been escor-
ting the Prime Minister and im-
mediately boarded Weizman's
plane to Cairo.
No details of the meeting with
Mubarak were reported here.
Weizman is believed to have ex-
plained to him the importance of
the decision by the Inner Cab-
inet to offer Egypt a package
deal including arbitration over
Taba.
Observers here said that un-
less Weizman returns from
Cairo with an agreement for an
early summit, Peres' prestige,
no less than his own, would suf-
fer a severe blow and the peace
process will be in danger.

Bonn (JTA) — The Flick
group of companies, a West
German industrial conglomo-
rate, said last week it has paid
$2 million to the Conference on
Jewish Material Claims Against
Germany to compensate surviv-
ing Jewish slave laborers used
by one of its subsidiaries,
Dynamit-Nobel, during World
War II.
There are an estimated
1,000-1,300 surviving slave
laborers who were used by
Dynamit-Nobel.
The one-time payment was
approved by Deutsche Bank,
West Germany's largest bank,
which acquired the Flick group
last month for $2 billion. It was
described as a "humanitarian"
gesture.. The bank's board
chairman, Wilhelm Christian
had said earlier that the bank
was under no legal obligation to
pay compensation to former
slave laborers.
The Flick group, founded by
the late Friedrick Flick and sold
to Deutsche Bank by his son,
Friedrich Karl, denied it had
utilized slave labor during the
Nazi era, through it did profit

from the acquisition of Jewish
companies "aryanized" by the
Third Reich. ,
In a related development, an
anti-Semitic cannard by a rank-
ing member of the Christian So-
cial Union (CSU), the Bavarian
sister-party of Chancellor Hel-
mut Kohl's ruling Christian
Democratic Union (CDU), has
added to the bitterness sur-
rounding Jewish efforts to get
the peutsche Bank to honor a
reparion agreement reached
last y ar with a company the
bank recently took over.
Hermann Feilner, who heads
the Home Affairs Committee of
the CSU's Bundestag faction,
made clear that he thinks there
is neither legal nor moral obli-
gation for Deutsche Bank to pay
reparations to former Jewish
slave laborers.
The claims on the Deutsche
Bank "create the impression
that Jews are quick to show up
whenever money jingles in
German cashboxes," he said. His
remarks infuriated the Jewish
community and drew the ire of
other Bundestag factioUs.
