n the day before Rosh
Hashanah, General
Yitzhak Mordachi,
head of Israel's Central
Command, which faces Jor-
dan, met with a committee of
concerned citizens who live
along the Jordsnian border.
The agenda consisted of one
item: the recent spate of ter-
rorist incidents along the
frontier and what the army
was planning to do about it.
Mordachi assured the
committee that security
measures were being taken,
and that the army would be
ready to meet any terrorist
incursions from across the
Jordan River. But the very
fact that such a meeting was
needed points to the steady
escalation that is taking
place along the border.
The Jordanian border is
Israel's longest and, until
the start of this year, its
most peaceful. But since the
beginning of 1989, there
have been been six serious
incidents-along the frontier,
four of them in September.
These include a Katyusha
rocket attack launched from
Jordan, a sniping incident
involving Jordanian and
Israeli soldiers, and two
cases of armed infiltration.
In one; a Palestinian gun-
man aligned with a pro-
m Syrian faction of the PLO
crossed into Israel via Jor-
dan, ambushed an army
patrol and killed two
soldiers. In the other, two
Jordanians, one of them a
soldier, were captured near
Sodom on their way to carry
out an attack on an Israeli
civilian target.
The recurring incidents
along the long-peaceful
border have touched off dip-
lomatic activity in the
region. According to
Western diplomats here, the
United States has been try-
ing to defuse the situation
through contacts with Jor-
dan, Syria and the PLO, as
well as with Israel. And Jor-
dan's King Hussein sent a
stiff note to the Syrians,
demanding that they pre-
vent Syrian- based Palesti-
nian terrorists from crossing
into Jordan on their way to
attack Israel.
For its part, Israel has
reacted to the incidents with
unusual restraint. "We don't
believe that the Jordanian
policy of keeping the border
peaceful has changed," said

Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir. Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens rejected calls
from the right to explicitly
warn King Hussein. Arens
told the hawks that King
Hussein is as interested as
Israel in keeping the peace.
Privately, however, Israel
made it clear to the Jorda-
nian monarch that it regards
the situation along the
border with great concern.
To make the point, it sent a
thinly veiled warning to
Amman, in the form of a
front page article in Yediot
Aharonot,the country's

King Hussein: Working for order.

largest circulation news-
paper. The article, - which
appeared without any by-
line, reported that "Israel
views with worry and great
gravity the series of recent
clashes on the Jordanian
border." The story contained
no attribution. Such =at-
tributed newspaper articles
have been used by the Israeli
government on occasion to
convey emphatic, quasi-
official warnings.
Officials here have no
doubt that King Hussein
would like to cooperate; in
the past few weeks, his army
has stepped up border
patrols, and is building new
look-out points along the
river. But privately, they are
concerned that the king may
be losing his grip.
"One incident, OK, ac-
cidents happen," said a
senior Israeli security fig-
ure. "But when you get one
after another, you begin to
wonder if Hussein is in con-
trol."
Officials are especially
worried about the in-
volvement of Jordanian
soldiers in some of the in-
cidents. The recurring Jor-
