Netanyahu Gives Vision
Of Danger, Promise

New York (JTA) — Israeli
Deputy Foreign Minister
Binyamin .Netanyahu pre-
sented a vision last week of
an Israel poised on the verge
of both greatness and destruc-
tion, whose potential for
growth or annihilation is so
awesome that the description
"apocalyptic" does not seem
inappropriate.
In a three-pronged speech
here to the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, Netanyahu
suggested first that Israel is
about to be infused with the
greatest influx of immigrants
from the Soviet Union ever
and that they might very well
come through a free doorway,
just as from the West.
Then, acknowledging
Israel's dire financial straits,
which could scarcely support
the vast needs of these new
immigrants, the Likud of-
ficial said that Israel is about
to revolutionize its economy.
He exhorted his audience to
"buy, invest?'
Completing this augury,
Netanyahu then presented a
portrait of an Israel now
riding a very thin line bet-
ween continuation and total
annihilation. Its fate, he
seemed to imply, hangs on the
legitimacy the world gives the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Netanyahu cited an April 4
address given in Arabic by
Farouk Kaddoumi, the PLO's
so-called "foreign minister,"
who said that although the
PLO's methods have changed,
the West Bank and Gaza are
still the launching pads to
liberate Haifa and Jaffa.
"Jewish history is going to
be determined right now,"
Netanyahu said, his voice
becoming more intense.

He drew pointed com-
parison between the Israel of
today, which is being asked to
give up its administered ter-
ritories, and the
Czechoslovakia of 1938,
which was entreated by Adolf
Hitler to deliver up the
Sudetenland as "a last ter-
ritorial claim?'
He recalled that the Times
of London editorialized at the
time that "Czechoslovakia
must choose now which way
it must go on ruling an alien
people?' The paper urged the
Czech government to "choose
peace," he said, drawing an
analogy to words often used
by Israel's critics.
"Those who say that a
Palestinian state will lead to
peace are fatal. It's a prescrip-
tion for catastrophic war, not
just regular war," he said.

Instead of choosing, an-
nihilation, Israel has offered
the Palestinians "another
idea," said Netanyahu. "You
can have maximum control of
your daily life and we (will) be
in charge of security," he said,
giving a broad outline of
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's plan for Palestinian
autonomy.
But his speech was as full of
optimistic predictions as it
was grave warnings. He spoke
passionately of the changes
going on in Eastern Europe,
citing his recent trip to
Poland and the "glacial
change" taking place in
Jewish life in Hungary.
Building steam, he said,
"Something is about to hap-
pen. I think the Soviet Union
is radically going to alter its
emigration policies very soon,
and you will be able to go to
any embassy in Moscow" for
an emigration visa.
Placing the Jewish people
at a singular crossroads,
Netanyahu said, "History is
judging every one of us. And
it is not going to give the
Jewish people another
chance. This is it."

Beirut Refugee
Numbers Swell

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
number of refugees from the
civil war in Beirut who have
retreated to the Southern
Lebanon security zone reach-
ed 20,000 this weekend, the
Israeli authorities reported.
Only two weeks ago they
numbered about 12,000.
About 95 percent are Shiite
and Sunni Moslems, with the
other 5 percent Lebanese
Christians.
The influx proves "that the
security zone is the best and
safest place to live today in
Lebanon," said Gen. Yossi Pel-
ed, commander of the nor-
thern sector, in an interview
last week with the Israel-
sponsored "Voice of the
South" radio.
Few Christian refugees ar-
rive in the security zone
because the Christian enclave
in Beirut is cut off from the
roads leading south from the
city.
Christians looking for
escape travel to Cyprus,
which is accessible by ferry
from the Christian-held nor-
thern Lebanese port of
Jounieh.
But Syrian guns have shell-
_ed the ferries, causing
wealthy Christians to sail to
Cyprus in their yachts.
