Jerusalem (JTA) — The
broadcast of excerpts from a
diary kept by Mordechai
Vanunu last week touched off
an angry controversy be-
tween civil libertarians and
Israel television over the
right to privacy.
Vanunu is the former
nuclear technician who is in
custody for giving a British
newspaper information about
Israel's alleged nuclear
weapons capabilities. His
lawyer, Amnon Zichroni, said
that he might press charges
against the Israel Broadcast
Authority.
A television reporter said
he found the diary in a suit-
case in a building where
Vanunu once lived. It covered
the years from 1982-85 and
revealed the writer's attitudes
toward women, family, philos-
ophy, religion and finances.
The excerpts read on televi-
sion described growing sym-
pathy with the Arab cause.
They depicted a troubled man
who had difficulty communi-
cating with others, who had
a "strong urge to prove
himself" and who feared he
was being "followed."
The Civil Rights Associa-
tion criticized the publiciza-
tion of the diary as a "gross
invasion of privacy." Accord-

seen in London on September

West Bank Head Sees
Change In Attitude

Washington (JTA) — Gen.
Ephraim Sneh, the civilian
administrator of the West
Bank, believes that most of
the 800,000 Palestinians in
Judaea and Samaria are mov-
ing away from the Palestine
Liberation Organization to a
more "realistic" position.
"I believe the majority of
Palestinians understand that
Israel is a fact" and "they

Americans.

view last Monday.
"They understand the slo-
gans of the PLO to destroy
the 'Jewish State are irrele-
vant and far from reality."
Sneh admits that the "sym-
pathy of the Palestinians is
still with the PLO." But he
said there is a growing "disil-
lusionment" with PLO ter-
rorist activities which they
see offer no hope for a solu-
tion of the Palestinian prob-
lem. "Most of the Palestinian
residents of the West Bank re-
ject terrorism," he maintained.
He said there are less riots,
demonstrations and strikes
on the West Bank and ter-
rorist incidents have
decreased.
Sneh conceded that the
Palestinian youth are more
likely to be radical and mili-
tant as elsewhere in the
world. "It changes with age,"
he added.

Sneh has headed the civil
administration of the West
Bank since July, 1985. He is
in charge of government for
the area, except for security
which is under the military
administration. The civilian
administration was created in
1981, but like the military ad-
ministration, is under the
Ministry of Defense. It does
not have authority for the
Jewish settlements on the
West Bank which is under
Israeli law.

intimate writings and cannot
be publicized without his con-

ity was accused of violating a
1981 law for protection of
privacy.
But the Authority main-
tained that Vanunu stands
accused of serious offenses
against the State and has lost
his right to privacy. Uri Porat,
Director General of the
Broadcast Authority, said
pains were taken not to
publicize anything about
Vanunu that is not already
known and to resist "the
temptation to score a great

which were contained in the
diary."
The reporter who obtained

A physician, most of his
career has been with the

cal corps. He headed the
medical team participating in
the Israeli rescue mission at
Entebbe, Uganda in 1976.

While he is in effect in
charge of the civilian govern-
ment of the West Bank, Sneh
stressed that it is Israel's
policy "not to interfere with
the day-to-day lives of the
West Bankers." He noted that
in the civil administration
13,000 of its employees are
local Arabs and only 300 are
Israelis.
