Agreement On Elections
Close For Top Israelis

Jerusalem (JTA) — There is
a large area of agreement
among the four senior
ministers of the Likud-Labor
coalition government on the
elections Israel prOposes to
hold in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens said Sunday.
He said they were agreed,
among other things, that
Israel would negotiate an in-
terim settlement with
whomever the voters choose,
"even if he/they proclaims
him/themselves to speak for
the Palestine Liberation
Organization."
Arens addressed reporters
shortly after he and Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir,
both of Likud, and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres and
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, both of the Labor Par-
ty, met to discuss the evolving
Israeli peace plan, which in-
cludes Palestinian elections.
A delegation of U.S. State
Department and National
Security Council officials is
due here next Saturday night
for talks with Israeli leaders
about their proposals.

Israelis have yet to agree on
all aspects of the plan. Peres
noted that the sensitive issue
of the eligibility of Arab
residents of East Jerusalem
to vote did "not come up" at
the Cabinet meeting.
Peres and Rabin favor the
participation of East
Jerusalem Arabs. Shamir
had been opposed, though he
and Arens have taken no
public position in recent days.
The most scathing criticism
of the entire election plan has
come from Industry and
Trade Minister Ariel Sharon,
a hard-liner from Likud's
Herut wing.
In a weekend radio inter-
view, he called the plan "a
major calamity" and "the big-
gest ever national blunder"
that would lead to the crea-
tion of a Palestinian state
"and to the partition of
Jerusalem."
Political observers expect a
showdown in Likud political
forums, with Shamir . and
Arens defending the plan
against critics like Sharon
and other ministers.

Jews Divided Over
Jackson-Vanik Waiver

New York (JTA) — Jewish
groups are split over whether
to favor a relaxation of U.S.
trade sanctions against the
Soviet Union contained in the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment.
Pressure to support a
waiver of provisions contain-
ed in the 14-year-old amend-
ment, which denies U.S. trade
benefits to the Soviet Union
because of its restrictive
emigration policies, comes as
Moscow is allowing the
largest exodus of Soviet Jews
since 1979.
Supporters of a waiver in-
clude the World Jewish Con-
gress, the Workmen's Circle
and delegates to the National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council plenum in
February.
They say that the current
emigration figures, averaging
more than 3,500 a month
since January, justify a
waiver of the trade sanctions,
which the amendment allows
if the Soviets have
demonstrated sustained im-
provement in their record on
emigration.
Waiving the sanctions
would restore "most-favored-
nation" trade status to the
Soviet Union, giving the

Soviets favorable tariff treat-
ment for their goods.
Proponents of a waiver
argue that this would en-
courage the Soviets to con-
tinue their increasingly
liberal emigration policies.
But others, including the
Washington-based Union of
Councils of Soviet Jews and
former prisoner of Zion Natan
Sharansky, oppose a waiver
until the Soviets put onto the
books new legislation
guaranteeing the right to
emigrate.

Montreal (JTA) — The co-
author of the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment Monday called
on Jews to support a one-year
waiver of provisions of the
statute that deny U.S. trade
benefits to the Soviet Union
because of its emigration
policies.
Former U.S. Rep. Charles
Vanik (D-Ohio), addressing a
luncheon session of the World
Jewish Congress Executive,
stressed that "the waiver will
not pass without the consent
and support of the Jewish
community of America."
