have been visits by high-
ranking Russian military
figures recently. Perestroika
or not, the Russians are still
a super power, and they
won't abandon their inter-
ests in Syria, any more than
the US would abandon its
interests in Israel."
Some analysts believe that
the new international
climate created by
perestroika could, indeed,
weaken links between Israel
and the US.
In an editorial last week,
the Israeli daily newspaper
Chadashotnoted that, "The
strategic alliance between
[Israel and the United
States]was intended to pro-
vide cooperation in the case
of a possible Soviet threat.
As that threat recedes,
American enthusiasm for
such cooperation will
decline."
According to Ben Elissar,
however, there is no real
danger that this will
happen. "The Americans
may be a little freer in put-
ting pressure on us, but I
don't believe that our stra-
tegic value will be eroded,"
he says. "If we aren't impor-
tant any more, than neither
is NATO, Korea or the
Phillipines. Even during
detente, each superpower
will want to maintain its
strategic assets."
Another troubling aspect
of perestroika is the spectre
of a re-united Germany.
Israeli Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir termed such a
possibility "extremely
grave," but few analysts
think that Israel can, or
should, play an active role in
preventing German unity.
"The feeling is that we
don't need to take the lead,"
says Avner Yaniv, a pro-
fessor of political science at
Haifa University. "The
French, the British and es-
pecially the Russians have
more to fear from a powerful
Germany than we do. They
won't let it happen."
While experts and officals
ponder the implications of
perestroika for Israeli policy,
its impact is already being
felt in the daily life.
Some Tel Aviv pubs have
hired Russian singers to
entertain the more than
20,000 Soviet tourists ex-
pected this year. And, after a
20-year boycott, Russian
cultural and sports events —
from an appearance by the
Bolshoi ballet to a Russian- •
Israeli old-timers basketball
game — are drawing large
crowds. ❑

Between 1928 and 1989, approximately 1,100 students attended the
