Join us in electing Joan Young
Oakland County Probate Judge.

He said the best plan would
be a Labor-Likud government
with a lifespan of six to 12
months. During that time,
the two parties would alter
Israel's electoral system to
prevent another stalemate.
The parties would then call
for new elections.

Orthodox Parties
Hold Balance


niversity of Michigan
political scientist Dr.
Raymond Tanter said
it is ironic that even though
the election was fought on
questions of peace and securi-
ty, those issues will not be ad-
dressed, irrespective of
whether Likud or Labor
forms the next government.
Both major parties are con-
cerned with the peace process
— Likud with its land-for-
security philosophy and
Labor with its land-for-peace
policy — "but it is the
religious parties that will
have the final say," Tanter
The strong showing of the
religious camp and the gains
made by Agudat Yisrael and
its offshoots Shas and Degel
Hatorah — all three are ultra-
Orthodox and non-Zionist in
philosophy — raise questions
as to what concessions Likud
or Labor will have to make to
secure their support.
Shoshana Cardin, former
president of the Council of
Jewish Federations, express-
ed concern that the religious
parties will try to make
passage of "Who Is A Jew"
legislation amending the Law
of Return the condition for
participating in a coalition.
The Law of Return offers
any Jew automatic Israeli
citizenship. A Jew is now
defined as anyone born of a
Jewish mother or converted
to Judaism. "Who Is A Jew"
legislation would require
halachic, or Orthodox, conver-
sion. Critics of the Orthodox
initiative, like Cardin, say the
passage of this legislation
would split the Jewish people
and drive a wedge between
Israel and the Diaspora.
"We will be vocal in ex-
pressing our hope that a coali-
tion will not be formed with
a commitment to amending
that law," Cardin said.
U-M's Tanter said the
strong religious showing is
not a reflection of increased
religiosity in Israel, but "an
expression of satisfaction
with the National Unity
Government. Some swing
voters just moved into the
religious camp."
Because neither party was
given a clear mandate for its
policies, Tanter predicts a con-
