Talks Must Include PLO,
Secret Report Says

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A secret
Israeli intelligence report
prepared for top government
officials says a dialogue with
the Palestinians is impossible
without the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization.
The report, which says ,the
PLO has undergone a sub-
stantive change for the better,
also concludes that the
Palestinian uprising will not
stop in the foreseeable future
unless Israel engages in talks
with the PLO.
Details of the annual in-
telligence report, whicb was
recently submitted to senior
government figures in
Jerusalem, were leaked to the
Israeli news media this week,
possibly to coincide with
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's convening of an in-
ternational Jewish solidarity
conference in Jerusalem.
Shamir has resolutely
refused ever to negotiate with
the PLO, a position that was
challenged at the conference
this week.
The report was prepared by
what were described as
"authorized elements for ap-
praisal," all of whom are said
to have agreed that the in-
tifada has been a catalyst for
all political processes con-
nected with the Middle East
The report said that a real
change has occurred in the
PLO, which now sincerely
desires to find a realistic
political solution to the Israel-
Palestinian problem.
The report also said there
are no leaders in the ter-
ritories who are not directed
by the PLO. This would quash
Shamir's intention to
negotiate only with Palesti-
nian "moderates" in the
The report says that even
the most fervent supporters of
Jordan's King Hussein have
fallen silent in face of the
king's decision, unchanged
since last July, to sever all
ties to the West Bank and
leave its destiny up to the
The report's authors believe
the United States and Soviet
Union now have a common
interest in settling the con-
flict, and that this will
necessarily bring about coor T
dination between the super-
powers on the problem.
The report raises concern
about the economic coopera-
tion agreement signed recent-
ly by Jordan, Egypt, Iraq and
North Yemen and points out
that the group's strength in
the Arab world is increasing.
It observes that if the

political process were to run
aground again, this con-
federation could become a
major threat to Israel's securi-
ty, because Iraq would place
its awesome military might
at the group's disposal.
The report's authors believe
it is up to Israel to decide
whether this alliance re-
mains merely a basis for
political and economic
cooperation or whether it ex-
pands to include hostile
military coordination in the
event of Israeli rejection of a
political solution.

Tourists Report
Long Delays
At Taba Border

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak
praised Israel's return of the
Taba beach resort to Egyptian
control last week as a model
of Israeli cooperation with
countries of the Middle East.
But an Israeli hotelier
alleged that Israeli
authorities are now trying to
block tourism to the area, and
tourists complained of ex-
cessive red tape at Israeli
border checkpoints.
Speaking from a special
dais erected near the Taba
Sonesta Hotel, gaily
decorated with Egyptian
flags and large portraits of
the Egyptian president, Mu-
barak said the resolution of
the Taba dispute serves as a
model of cooperation between
Israel and the countries of the
region, especially Jordan.
But Eli Papushado, former
owner of the Avia Sonesta
Hotel and now manager of
the renamed, Egyptian-
owned Taba Sonesta, has call-
ed into question whether the
Israeli authorities. are in-
terested in continuing the
cooperation in Taba.
Papushado criticized
lburism Minister Gideon Patt
for saying Friday that Israelis
who continue to frequent
Taba have to be "masochists."
The minister expressed con-
cern that large-scale tourism
to Taba could draw tourists
away from hotels in Eilat,
particularly if Egypt opens a
casino at Taba.
He threatened to impose a
travel tax on Israelis wishing
to visit the area if Egypt
made such a move.
Papushado called Patt's
remarks ridiculous, consider-
ing all the effort the govern-
ment had put into easing
Israeli access to the resort
area during negotiations with
the Egyptians.
