Post,Israel's only
English-language dai-
ly, is in the throes of a fierce
dispute over policy between
its senior editorial staff and
its recently appointed presi-
dent and publisher, retired
Israel Defense Forces Col.
Yehuda Levy.
The Post reported on its
front page Tuesday that nine
senior editorial staff
members, led by Managing
Editor David Landau, and
11 other journalists sent
letters of resignation to Levy
and to David Radler, chair-
man of the Canada-based
Hollinger newspaper chain,
which bought the Post last
April.
They said they would leave
the paper in 30 days if Levy
were not replaced. Levy
responded by firing them.
More than 20 staff
members threatened last
week to strike unless Radler
removed Levy in 30 days as
the Post's president and
publisher.
Their action followed the
Dec. 25 resignation of Editor
Erwin Frenkel, who charged
that Levy had compromised
his editorial integrity.
Levy told army radio last
week that he had appointed
a new editor and that the
newspaper could publish
easily with the remaining
news staff.
The joint letter of resigna-
tion stated that despite the
owners' promise to
"preserve the editorial in-
dependence and not to alter
the character of the paper,"
there had been "an ever-
increasing erosion of edito-
rial independence" in recent
months, "accompanied by an
assault on the editorial line
which the paper has em-
bodied since its estab-
lishment."
The letter charged that
Frenkel and the paper's
other editor, Ari Rath, who
took early retirement in
November, had been forced
to leave the Post, after more
than a decade, because of
"actions which undermined
their status and that of the
entire editorial staff."
The Post, regarded as left
of center editorially, has
been severely critical of
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's handling of the
two-year-old Palestinian
uprising in the territories.

The newspaper supports the
land-for-peace formula,
which is anathema to
Shamir and his Likud party.
Levy, a Likud supporter,
says he wants a more bal-
anced editorial policy at the
Post.
Although he reportedly
gave his word not to in-
terfere in editorial matters,
Levy has involved himself
increasingly. He raised
eyebrows when, without
journalistic experience, he
applied for membership in
the Israel Editors Com-
mittee, composed of profes-
sional journalists.
Recently, Levy ordered the
withdrawal of an editorial
critical of Shamir's policies
from the Post's international
edition.
The Post has a daily cir-
culation of 25,000, small
even by Israeli standards. Its
weekend edition, published
Fridays, has a circulation of
55,000, and its weekly in-
ternational edition boasts
70,000 readers.
The newspaper is widely
read by diplomats, jour-
nalists, tourists and Jews
abroad.
Founded in the early 1930s
as the Palestine Post by an
American, Gershon Agron-
sky, the paper was bought by
Hollinger from Histadrut's
financially ailing Koor In-
dustries for a reported price
of $17.5 million. ❑

Crimes Suspect
Out On Bail

Toronto (JTA) — The On-
tario Superior Court has
granted bail to accused war
criminal Michael
Pawlowski, after he was
formally charged with eight
counts of war crimes and
crimes against humanity,
including the murders of 490
Jews and Poles during
World War II.
Pawlowski, a 72-year-old
resident of Renfrew, Ont.,
was released on Dec. 20 after
posting his brick bungalow
as bond.
Pawlowski was ordered to
report weekly to the police
and to remain in the Ren-
frew-Ottawa area.
The native of Byelorussia
is the second person to be
charged under Canada's
1987 war-crimes law, which
permits Canadian courts to
prosecute suspected war
criminals living in Canada.
