ARSON AGAIN DESTROYS
FORESTS IN ISRAEL

So he has once again gone to
Rabin, his main political ally,
and told him in so many
words, "finish the intifada."
Shamir says that the Arabs
now have only two options:
Either pursue his political in-
itiative or face a tougher IDF
hand. Till now, Shamir and
Rabin have protected each
other's flanks; and though it
will be a difficult choice for
Labor stalwart Rabin, he is
likely to accept Shamir's new
challenge. Mitzna's sudden
departure could be the first
major move. In order to
achieve what Shamir and
Rabin now have in mind, the
IDF will have to "untie the
hands" of the average soldier,
so that the standing army, as
well as the reservists, feel
that the government is fully
behind them. The deep feel-
ing of helplessness among the
rank and file was driven
home this past week with the
tragic story of a 19-year-old
soldier, Yossi Hadassi.
Hadassi committed suicide
last week, one year after he
overpowered and killed an
Arab terrorist who tried to
snatch his weapon and kill
him. At first he was hailed as
a national hero for his action.
But then, Arab and Jewish
propagandists of the PLO con-
vinced the slain terrorist's
family to file a demand for an
investigation by the IDF,
claiming that Hadassi and
two fellow soldiers had in-
stigated the attack, and that
the slain man had only tried
to defend himself. Under
Shomron and Mitzna's
policies, a soldier like Hadassi
not only was not decorated,
but was cast in a shadow, his
word constantly doubted.
Hadassi was put through
legal hell because of the pro-
be, even though all of the
many witnesses to the attack,
which occurred near the cen-
tral bus station in Petach
Tikva, stuck by their stories
that Hadassi was totally in-
nocent. As the probe went on,
the 19-year-old told family
members that he was being
made a scapegoat. Last week,
he took his life with his own
gun. The average Israeli, who
increasingly identifies with
Jewish victims of the intifada
like Yossi Hadassi, and who is
worried about a general
breakdown of order, is rapid-
ly becoming convinced that
there is a military solution to
the intifada, and that there
can be no political way out.
This may be the first sign
since the beginning of the
uprising that Israelis appear
as motivated as the Palesti-
nians. Many Israelis now feel
prepared to push the govern-
ment to become more
decisive. 0

Sue Ellen Eisenberg, President of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund Council of Greater Detroit, announces
that the Intifada movement in Israel has begun
once again a program of arson of JNF forests
throughout the country. To date, fires have been
started at the J.F. Kennedy Memorial Forest, as well
as thousands of saplings destroyed in a tree
nursery in the Galilee. JNF is infinitely better
prepared this season to limit this damage.

Last year's campaign saw destruction of 35,000
acres of forests and pastureland and the need for
JNF to combat arson through updating fire-fighting
equipment. Fire engines, communication systems,
watch towers, roads, etc. have been purchased and
developed through the efforts fo the Fire Emergen-
cy Campaign held last year. Our own community
raised over $180,000 from contributors in the
Greater Detroit area, which included a substantial
gift made by Gary Wasserman through his
Dusseldorf, Germany, office. Your responding to
INF's needs will be most appreciated.
