Americans also want Israel to
understand that there is no
turning back the clock. As
Baker informed Israeli Am-
bassador Moshe Arad earlier
this month, the United States
is not going to suspend its
dialogue with the PLO —
unless, of course, Arafat's
mainstream Fatah branch
can be conclusively linked to
some spectacular terrorist in-
cident. And the Americans
believe Arafat is too savvy to
permit that to occur. As a
result, the Americans insist
that Israel must simply get
over the notion that a suspen-
sion of the U.S. dialogue with
the PLO is realistic.
The new team of American
policymakers involved in the
Middle East is impressive and
generally sympathetic to
Israel's legitimate security
concerns. They can be ex-
pected to bend over
backwards to reassure
Jerusalem about America's
friendly intentions.
U.S. policy in the Middle
East under Bush remains, for
now, essentially what it was
under Reagan. Eventually,
there will be some changes.
The Arab and Israeli leader-
ship will be busy lobbying the
White House and the State
Department.
In the process, there will no
doubt be some serious dif-
ferences between the United
States and Israel. But a con-
vincing and farsighted ap-
proach by Israel in the corn-
ing weeks, U.S. officials said,
could go a very long way in
ensuring continued harmony
between Washington and
Jerusalem.

Soviet Emigre
Numbers Drop

Washington (JTA) — A total
of 2,725 Jews left the Soviet
Union in January, the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported last week.
This is 25 percent less than
December's total of 3,652.
Meanwhile, the board of
governors of the National
Conference last week approv-
ed the appointment of Martin
Wenick as the organization's
new executive director.
Wenick, 50, is currently
deputy assistant secretary of
state for coordination in the
State Department's Bureau of
Intelligence and Research. A
career foreign service officer,
he is scheduled to take up his
new position in March.
Wenick served in Moscow,
Rome, Prague and Kabul.
