Modal Resigns
After Tiff
With Peres

Jerusalem (JTA) — Justice
Minister Yitzhak Modai re-
signed from the government last
Monday shortly before he was
about to be fired by Prime
Minister Shimon Peres for
"disparaging public remarks"
about Peres.
Modai, a Likud Liberal,
handed in his resignation at a
Cabinet meeting convened by
Peres for the express purpose of
dismissing him. Under the law,
it takes effect in 48 hours.
By quitting voluntarily,
Modai averted a coalition crisis
inasmuch as the Labor-Likud
agreement specifies that the
Prime Minister of one party may
not fire a Minister of the other
without the consent of that
party's leader.
Likud Ministers and Knesset
members criticized Peres and
hinted darkly that Labor was
maneuvering to break up the
unity coalition three months
before the rotation of power
agreement takes effect and
Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir
assumes the office of Prime
Minister. Nevertheless, they
were markedly cool in defense of
Modai. Several Likud ministers
agreed that his remarks were in-
temperate but argued that
Laborite Ministers have said far
worse things about Shamir.
Peres took umbrage at Mo-
dai's statement in an interview
that Peres "knows as much
about law as he does about
economics," which in the context
clearly meant not very much.
The two men have long been
at odds and their differences
have been personalized. An at-
tack on Peres by Modai earlier
this year resulted in his dis-
missal as Finance Minister. To
avoid bringing down the govern-
ment, Likud Ministers arranged
for Modai to swap portfolios
with then Justice Minister
Moshe Nissim. Modal has never
reconciled himself to the loss of
the much more powerful and
prestigious Finance Ministry.

Polish Cleric
Pays Secret
Visit To Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The Arch-
bishop of Cracow paid a 12-
hour visit to Israel recently so
shrouded in secrecy that the
Israel Foreign Ministry was un-
aware of the Cardinal's visit.
Cardinal Franciszek Machar-
ski, who is reportedly a close
friend of Pope John Paul II,
spent four hours in Yad Vashem
lighting a memorial torch and in-
specting the library and
archives.
Prof. Marcel Dubois, a Cath-
olic Professor of Philosophy at
the Hebrew University, coor-
dinated the visit with the
assistance of Mayor Teddy
Kollek of Jerusalem, according
to press reports here.
