couraged by a large Soviet
aliyah must not obscure the
basic right of the Jewish
state to receive Jewish im-
migrants. Palestinians
would want their state to
have the same right to ab-
sorb Palestinian refugees
from their diaspora.
Palestinian spokesmen
would do better to clearly
limit their protests to set-
tlement of the new immi-

grants in the territories.
This is an understandable
and legitimate concern.
Questioning the justice of
Soviet Jewish aliya in gen-
eral only raises doubts about
the Palestinian commitment
to coexistence with a viable
Israel. It harms Palestinian
attempts to appeal to the
Israeli public, to assuage its
fears and address its legiti-
mate concerns.

defuse the present incentive,
especially in the Labor Par-
t y , for territorial
withdrawal," Nusseibeh
said. "The demographic in-
centive, after all, is Labor's
only major incentive for such
withdrawal. Less incentive
means less engagement in
the peace process, and this
may therefore lead the re-
gion towards war.
"Secondly," Nusseibeh
continued, "whether or not
Soviet immigrants settle in
our occupied Palestinian
state [i.e., the territories],
surely their influx in large
numbers within the 'Green
Line' will generate all kinds
of internal pressure that will
strengthen the hands of
those in Israel who call for
settlement in the ter-
ritories."
Nusseibeh went on to re-
suscitate arguments made
against Jewish immigration
during the British Mandate:
"The region's resources
must be properly assessed.
How can Israel oppose the
return of Palestinians to the
Palestinian state on the
grounds of limited resources
while blatantly ignoring
such restrictions on Soviet
immigrants?"
Maintaining that he was
not opposed to the principle
of Jewish immigration to
Israel, Nusseibeh said that
"what concerns me is what
the implementation of this
principle at this stage and
within the present context
might do."
The present stage is one in
which the Soviet Union is
allowing free emigration; it
is a unique opportunity to
bring more Jews to Israel. It
is precisely the context for
Israeli efforts to attract new
immigrants.
As Palestinians who pro-
fess recognition of Israel,
Nusseibeh and his col-
leagues must also recognize
that Israel, like any
sovereign state, has a right
to absorb immigrants. Argu-
ing against this right
smacks of non-acceptance of
Israel's sovereign status.
It is true that Prime Min-
ister Shamir has used the in-
flux of immigrants to pro-
mote his political aim of a
greater Israel, arguing that
it removes the Arab
"demographic threat"
which, according to the
Labor Party, necessitates
territorial compromise.
But the dangers of Israeli
political intransigence en-

Cairo Suddenly Friendly
In Wake of Bus Attack

mourning their dead.
Rather, they feel hurt that
terrorists, whether Palestin-
ians or Moslem fundamenta-
lists, managed to shame
their security system.
"It could have happened
anywhere," explained An-
war Helal, the young direc-
tor of Safaga Travel, which
arranged the bus tour. "It
happened in Munich. It even
happened on the Tel Aviv-
Haifa highway," he recalled.
Helal said his company al-
ready had five tour cancella-
tions from Israel. "This has
been the worst blow to
tourism since the assassina-
tion of President Anwar
Sadat," he said.
In a good year, tourism
from Israel, which includes
non- Israelis in transit, ac-
counts for 10 to 15 percent of
Egypt's entire tourist vol-
ume. It is a vital source of
revenue, especially for an
ailing economy.
Beyond the economic con-
cerns, the Egyptians see the
bus attack as a challenge to
their control of the country
and a blow to the peace pro-
cess which President Hosni
Mubarak has diligently
sought to advance.
It is also seen as a low blow
to a country that has paid a
high price for its in-
volvement in the Palestin-
ian-Israeli conflict.
By the end of the week,
Egyptian anger over the at-
tack developed into an open
rift with the PLO, ag-
gravated by Palestinian
failure to push the peace
process forward.
The Egyptian press
criticized the low-key Pales-
tinian condemnation of the
attack, which linked it to
Israeli actions in the ter-
ritories.

Cairo (JTA) - Perhaps it is
revulsion against terrorism.
No doubt it is shame. It may
even be feared loss of
revenue from tourism. But
whatever the cause, Cairo
clearly is a more pleasant
place for an Israeli to visit
now than it was for a long
time before Feb. 4.
That was the day terrorists
attacked an Israeli tour bus
on a busy highway southeast
of Cairo, killing nine Israelis
and two Egyptians, and
wounding 18.
Now, Israelis are suddenly
popular with Egyptians from
all walks of life, who have
little good to say about the
Palestinians.
"We have been fighting for
them since 1948," said
Sheikh Sa'ad, as he polished
shoes outside the Israeli
Academic Center here, "and
look what they (the Palestin-
ians) have done to us."
Yassir Arafat "is the devil
himself," he said, unknow-
ingly using the same label
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir often uses to de-
scribe the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chief.
Sa'ad had a ready reply for
a bystander who thought Pa-
lestinians living in the
Israeli-administered ter-
ritories deserved their
"national rights."
"The Jews did not disown
anyone of his land, they all
paid for their land in cash,"
he said.
At a different end of the
social scale, prominent
Egyptian journalists - in-
tellectuals never known for
affection for Israel - are
writing sympathetically
about the Jewish state.
It is not that the Egyptians
have suddenly been over-
whelmed with a wave of
compassion for the Israelis
