Israel To Bar Husseini
From Cairo Talks

Jerusalem (JPFS) — Israel
will consider Faisal Hus-
seini ineligible for member-
ship in the Palestinian dele-
gation to the planned Israeli-
Palestinian dialogue in
Cairo, because of his links to
the PLO and because he
lives in East Jerusalem, offi-
cials in the Prime Minister's
Office said Sunday.
Husseini, widely believed
to be the leading PLO per-
sonality in the territories,
was remanded for four days
on Friday on suspicion of
providing funds for the
Palestinian People's Army
in the West Bank. Husseini
has denied the charge.
The U.S. State Depart-
ment has censured Israel for
undermining the peace pro-
cess by insisting on pressing
charges against Husseini.
"Husseini is ineligible,
because he is a PLO member
and is also a resident of East
Jerusalem," an official in
the Prime Minister's Office
said.
Because of Husseini's PLO
connections, he said, his
presence in Cairo would add
weight to PLO claims that
elections in the territories
are superfluous. "We won't
fall into that trap," he- add-
ed.
If the Cairo talks are not
properly structured by the
prior getting of the Palesti-
nian delegates, "you can say
goodbye to the peace pro-
cess," the official said.
The composition of the
Palestinian negotiation
team is one of the major
sticking points in the cur-
rent diplomatic impasse.
The team's makeup is ex-
pected to be finalized in the
long-delayed tri-lateral
meeting between the foreign
ministers of Israel, the U.S.
and Egypt, tentatively
scheduled for the end of next
month.
During last week's cabinet
meeting, Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir was em-
phatic that the decision to
arrest Husseini was not
taken on the ministerial
level and was not linked to
the peace process, but rather
was handled as a routine
police and legal matter,
sources said.
Officials in the Prime Min-
ister's Office say they do not
know if Shamir was aware of
the police intention to arrest
Husseini.
The cabinet was divided on
the Husseini arrest.
Communications Minister
Gad Ya'acobi (Labor)

I

reportedly said that by ar-
resting Husseini, Israel was
making it more difficult for a
representative Palestinian
leadership to develop with
which it could negotiate.
"We must use some political
judgment," Ya'acobi said.
Only negotiations with
West Bank Palestinians, he
said, will prevent Israel be-
ing forced to talk with the
PLO, he said.
Shamir retorted that the
Husseini arrest was not a
cabinet matter. Energy Min-
ister Moshe Shahal (Labor)
said the arrest only served to
increase Husseini's political
stature.
Industry and Trade Min-
ister Ariel Sharon reported-
ly told the cabinet that there
is evidence that Husseini is
connected to terrorist activi-
ty. He suggested that Israel
exploit the fact that world
attention is now being di-
verted from the Middle East
to expel Husseini.
Minister-Without-Portfolio
Avner Shaki (National
Religious Party) was sharply
critical of the U.S. for pro-
testing against Husseini's
detention. "It is intolerable
that anyone, local and cer-
tainly foreign, to interfere
with the legal process in
order to _change it or nullify
it."

Joint Cantorial
Being Planned

Miami (JTA) — As the
Berlin wall continues to
crumble day by day, plans
for the first joint East-West
cantorial festival scheduled
for March are well under-
way.
The European East-West
Spring Cantorial Festival, to
be held March 14 to March
30, will feature concerts by
six of the world's foremost
cantors in Prague, Budapest,
Amsterdam, Vienna and
Warsaw.
The festival will open in
Prague with a memorial
service at the site of the
Theresienstadt concentra-
tion camp, and include a
Shabbat service in Prague.
In Budapest, the cantors --
Chaim Adler and David
Bagley of Toronto, Naftali
Herstik of Jerusalem, Ben-
Zion Miller of Brooklyn,
Alberto Misrachi of
Cleveland and Isaac Good-
friend of Atlanta -- will be
guests of Hungary's Min-
istry of Tourism and the
Central Board of Hungarian
Jews.
