the affair but refused to give the
date or elaborate in any way.
In his press interview he
made clear that he is actively
seeking to prevent a police in-
quiry ordered by Zamir. It was
delayed pending the return of
police Inspector-General David
Kraus from a trip abroad. Ac-
cording to Modai, Zamir himself
was prepared to support a judi-
cial commission of inquiry.
Modai made no secret of the
fact that he and other members
of the Inner Cabinet, including
Premier Shimon Peres and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, believe there should not
be an investigation because of
the extreme sensitivity of the
matter for State security.
But failing to prevent this, he
and Peres prefer a judicial
commission to a police inquiry,
Modai said, though Shamir and
his Herut colleagues vehemently
oppose any inquiry. Peres and
others are understood to be
ready to accept, although reluc-
tantly, the need for some sort of
inquiry. They would settle for a
judicial commission appointed
by the President of the Supreme
By law, the terms of an in-
quiry commission are laid down
by the Cabinet. This has led
some political commentators to
suggest that the Cabinet would
try to prevent the commission
from examining the actions, and
failures to act, of Shamir, who
was Premier at the time of the
incident, and Peres, who took
office only a few months later.
But legal authorities argued
that the new Attorney General
should have a key role in de-
termining the terms of reference
of the commission.'
In the New York Times on
Monday, commentator William
Safire wrote that Israel must
seriously reflect whether her
need for security is beginning to
undermine her principles.
Safire said Israel is suspect in
two national security cases: the
aborted investigation of the kil-
ling of the two Palestinian ter-
rorists, and the espionage probe
of Jonathan Jay Pollard, who
attempted to steal secrets from
the U.S. about Arab military
In the terrorist incident, sev-
eral Shin Beth officials pro-
tested to Premier Shimon Peres
about a coverup by the head of
their agency. Safire noted that
when Peres refused to confront
his chief of internal security, the
officials went to the independent
Attorney General who started
an investigation and was now
fired by the Cabinet.
A second example of "security
uncontrolled," according to Sa-
fire, is the Pollard affair where
a Jewish civilian working for
the U.S. Navy was reportedly
hired by Israeli intelligence and
has since been implicating
others, Americans and Israelis.
"The Israelis say the charges
are 'baseless,' Safire said, "but
because the Peres-Shamir gov-
ernment has just demonstrated
how it chokes up in a security
crisis, I suspect the charges are
not baseless."
