New York (JTA) — New
York City Mayor Edward
Koch and the Rev. Jesse
Jackson shook hands briefly
after a two-hour meeting last
Wednesday, and agreed to
pursue a "common agenda"
that would include attacking
urban problems and getting
out the vote for Democratic
presidential nominee Michael
Dukakis.
"The grandsons and grand-
daughters of slaves and the
sons and daughters of the
Holocaust must sit down and
find common ground," Jack-
son said at a news conference
following the meeting.
Both tried to deflect atten-
tion from events in April,
when tensions flared during
the New York Democratic

primary following remarks by
Koch, who said Jews and
other supporters of Israel
would have to be "crazy" to
vote for Jackson, and that
Jackson had lied about his
participation in the events
following the assassination of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The news conference was
held at New York Gov. Mario
Cuomo's Manhattan office at
2 World Trade Center. Cuomo
said that the meeting was not
"an attempt to go back into
history, to April 1988, or for-
ward into April 1989."
Cuomo scolded reporters
who questioned the attempt
at harmony. "Here are two
great Democratic leaders,"
Cuomo said. "One is talking
about the future, the other
about the pain people are feel-
ing in our cities, and all you
want to know is if they're go-
ing to marry each other.
Koch said that apologies
were not the purpose of the
meeting, but the need to forge
ahead. Koch said in the past
months he had already apol-
ogized for the stridency, if not
the substance, of his remarks.

Accompanying Jackson at
the closed meeting were
Manhattan Borough Presi-
dent David Dinkins, Rep.
Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), labor
leader Stanley Hill and
Jackson's son Jonathan. Koch
was accompanied by
businessman Peter Strauss,
who is Jewish.
Outside the building, about
15 members of Jews Against
Jackson demonstrated while
carrying signs reading
"Welcome to Hymietown"and
"Hymies for Bush."
The signs were a reference
to a remark made by Jackson
about the city during his bid
for the Democratic presiden-
tial nomination in 1984.

Violence In
Territories

Jerusalem (JTA) — Violence
erupted in the territories last
Wednesday when residents
staged a general strike for the
-second consecutive day.
The strike halted public
transportation, making it im-
possible for many laborers in
the territories to report for
work in Israel proper.
Two Arabs died in clashes
with the army, according to
reports by Arab sources who
said the violence began early
Wednesday when Israel De-
fense Force soldiers raided the
West Bank village of Beit
Rima, near Ramallah.
The Arab sources claimed
that some 15 residents were
arrested.
The army then moved on to
the nearby village of Deir
Ghassana, where residents
attacked the soldiers with
stones, bottles and bricks.
The army fired, killing Fathi
el-Barghouti, 22; five others
were wounded. A spokesper
son for the IDF said he could
not confirm the incident.
In the Gaza Strip, violence
erupted in the Shabura
neighborhood of Rafah as
residents violated the curfew.
The army fired tear gas and
rubber bullets, injuring one.
Quiet tension prevailed
over the West Bank city of
Nablus, following violent
demonstrations last Tuesday
night, in which at least nine
were wounded.
Palestinian youths gath-
ered along the highways and
attacked Israeli vehicles with
stones. Likud Cabinet Minis-
ter Moshe Arens suggested
during a tour of Ramallah on
Wednesday that measures
should be taken to prevent
potential rock-throwers from
approaching the major roads.
