postpone any decision about
the future of the territories. If
1988 were not an election
year the government would
probably have collapsed.
However, the intifada has
sharpened the election
debate. Labor supporters
espouse territorial corn-
promise as necessary for
keeping Israel both Jewish
and democratic. Likud
ideologists insist that the
return of territories would en-
danger Israel's security.
Labor leader and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres called
for an international con-
ference in the Middle East,
while Likud leader and
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has demanded direct
negotiations with Jordan
without preconditions. Sev-
eral shuttles by U.S.
Secretary of State George
Shultz were unable to per-
suade either the Jordanians
to talk to Israel or Shamir to
commit himself to territorial
compromise.
Meanwhile, the intifada
continues. If the intensity of
the rebellion in its first two
months has weakened, the
pattern of violence has
become better organized:
sporadic attacks with rocks
and petrol bombs on soldiers
and civilian vehicles; com-
mercial strikes and preven-
ting workers from going to
their jobs in Israel; compell-
ing policemen and other Arab
employees of the Israeli ad-
ministration to resign and
burning JNF forests. These
tactics, however, have not had
the desired effect on the
Israeli population, although
many civilians and soldiers
have been injured, and some
killed, by rock and petrol
bomb attacks.
But because of the intifada,
army reserve duty has been
increased to 60 days this year
and an additional $500
million has been spent in the
territories. Tourism has drop-
ped by 8 percent, and there is
a lack of labor in some sec-
tors, especially the construc-
tion industry.
Most disturbing of all,
however, has been the
damage done to Israel's inter-
national image. Israel's
liberal attitude to the foreign
press has encouraged an orgy
of coverage which has blown
the intifada all out of propor-
tion and has distorted in-
dividual incidents in order to
accentuate sensationalism.
Even in supposedly objec-
tive news coverage of street
riots, Israelis are seen as the
brutish Goliath and the
Palestinians as the heroic
David, stones in hand. The
overall context of the Middle
East situation is rarely
