A

s the United Nations
bustled with activity
at the opening of the
44th General Assembly on
Tuesday, the Israeli delega-
tion looked forward to the
new session with a tinge of
uncertainty.
While the Israelis are
steeled to counter the ex-
pected attacks on their
legitimacy from the Arab
bloc and their supporters,
two key issues are as yet
unresolved.
The one of primary con-
cern to Israel is whether or
not Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir
Arafat will be granted a U.S.
visa to come to New York to
address the General
Assembly.
Clovis Maksoud, the Arab
League representative here,
said Monday that Arafat has
not yet decided whether to
try to attend the General
Assembly session. But he
said that if Arafat did come,
the logical time for his visit
would be in November, when
the assembly holds its an-
nual debate on the Palesti-
nian issue.
The other unknown factor
for Israel will be the impact
of Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak's address to the
General Assembly, which is
scheduled for Sept. 29.
It is expected that
Mubarak will formalize and
detail his offer to host a dia-
logue between .Israeli offi-
cials and Palestinian repre-
sentatives on the implemen-
tation of proposed elections
in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip.
During Mubarak's stay in
New York, he will meet with
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens, who will ad-
dress the General Assembly
two days before him, and
with Finance Minister
Shimon Peres, whose visit is
not directly linked to the
United Nations.
But beyond the unknowns,
Israeli officials are prepared
to fight the usual attempts
to discredit the Jewish state
and the expected moves by
the PLO to win new victories
in its diplomatic war against
Israel.
"We are in a situation
where the other side is using
the U.N. as a propaganda
tool," Ephraim Dowek,

(JTA Washington Bureau
Chief David Friedman con-
tributed to this report.)

Israel's deputy permanent
representative to the United
Nations, said in an inter-
view this week.
Dowek said that the
Israelis view their position
at the United Nations as a
defensive one, constantly
having to fend off attacks
and criticism throughout the
course of the General
Assembly and within
various U.N. agencies.
The first move of this Gen-
eral Assembly is expected to
come in the form of the tra-
ditional attempt to revoke
Israel's credentials.
Since 1982, Arab nations
have annually tried to oust
Israel from the United
Nations by proposing an

United Nations as a
defensive one.

amendment to the report of
the Credentials Committee.
In the past, one of the
Scandinavian countries has
moved for postponement of
discussion of the Arab
amendment, and that move
has been upheld in a vote.
That sequence of events is
once again expected this
year.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith has
sent telegrams to the coun-
tries that either voted
against the Scandinavian
measure or abstained from
the vote last year.
The telegram said that
refraining from an attack on
Israel's U.N. credentials
"would send a positive
signal to all parties to fur-
ther the prospects for Arab-
Israeli coexistence."
Officials at the Israeli mis-
sion said they are confident
that they have enough votes
to survive the credentials
battle. They expect approx-
imately the same amount of
support Israel received last
year, with the possibility of
increased support from East
bloc countries in the wake of
glasnost.
At the same time, the
Israelis still do not feel they
have a chance of being able
to muster enough votes to
revoke the 1975 U.N. resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism.
The Israelis are also wary
of the efforts of the Palestine
Liberation Organization to
be recognized as a state.
