GRAND OPENING PPORTUNITY

The possible settlement of
Soviet Jews in the West
Bank has infuriated par-
tisans of Israel and of Pales-
tinians.
An editorial in the current
New Republic attacks as a
"red herring" the Soviet
Union's rejection of direct
Moscow-to-Tel Aviv flights
because of Soviet Jews
allegedly flocking to the
West Bank. The Kremlin's
original agreement to allow
direct flights was "an un-
characteristically responsi-
ble act. And responsibility
was called for: For decades,
anti-Semitism had been one
of the Party's hole cards,
there to be played whenever
the regime felt threatened.
No wonder the hatreds of
pre-revolutionary Russia
survived seven decades of
communism. And no
wonder, perhaps, that
Moscow has had second
thoughts about its airline
accord with Jerusalem!'
The Israeli Prime Min-
ister's recent comment that
Soviet Jews would be fun-
neled to the West Bank was
"the perfect excuse" for
Moscow to retreat from the
agreement, says the New
Republic. It was also "sheer
polemics" by Shamir, since
any program by Israel to set-
tle Soviet Jews in the ter-
ritories would persuade
these "highly desirable peo-
ple to simply stop coming:
They are not about to leave
their homes in unfriendly
places like Tashkent and
Baku in order to plant them-
selves among even un-
friendlier Arabs."
But Edward Said, in a
column on the New York
Times' op-ed page, takes
Shamir at his word. To Pa-
lestinians, he writes, settl-
ing Soviet Jews "on Pales-
tinian land that in effect has
been expropriated for that
purpose consolidates a long
history of their forcible
displacement by Israel."
"No matter what causes
Jews to suffer elsewhere,
somehow Palestinians are
made to pay for it."
Said, a Columbia Univer-
sity professor who has been
on the Palestine National
Council since 1977,
perceives U.S.-Israeli
"complicity" so Soviet Jews
could be a tool to avoid a
Mideast peace. ❑
