552 Palestinians Killed
Since Intifada Began

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A total of
552 Palestinian residents of
the administered territories
were killed in the first 25
months of the intifada, ac-
cording to statistics released
by the Defense Ministry.
Nine Israel Defense Force
soldiers and 11 Israeli
civilians were killed during
the same period, from Dec. 9,
1987, when the uprising
began, to Jan. 1 of this year.
A total of 1,736 IDF
soldiers and 831 Israeli
civilians were reported in-
jured. Palestinian injuries
totaled 9,587 — 6,244 in the
West Bank and 3,343 in the
Gaza Strip.
The dead Palestinians in-
cluded 72 children under the
age of 14. A total of 351 Pa-
lestinians died in the West
Bank, and 201 died in the
Gaza Strip.
Another 150 Palestinians
were killed by other Arabs,
ostensibly for having col-
laborated with the Israeli
authorities.
But many of these deaths
are said by the Israelis to
have been murders for per-
sonal reasons, including the
settling of old scores and the

killing of family members as
punishment for sexual
misbehavior, to preserve
"family honor."
The Defense Ministry
disclosed that as of Jan. 16,
9,206 Palestinians had been
detained, of whom 3,930 had
stood trial; 1,328 had been
ordered held in detention;
2,877 had been held in
detention during legal pro-
ceedings and 1,071 were be-
ing held under ad-
ministrative detention,
without trial.
A total of 259 Palestinian
homes have been destroyed
and 127 sealed, a punish-
ment for security violations.
Of 58 Palestinians
deported, 37 were from the
West Bank and 21 from the
Gaza Strip.
But Israel also admitted
829 Palestinians back into
the territories last year, for
purposes of family reunifica-
tion. According to the
Defense Ministry data,
76,743 persons have been
allowed back since Israel
captured the territories in
1967, with the largest
number of them returning in
1982.

Israel Does Not Oppose
German Reunification

Bonn (JTA) — Israel ap-
pears to have done a sharp
about-face on the question of
German reunification,
which it strongly opposed
only a few months ago.
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens told Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich
Genscher that Israel is no
longer negative about
uniting East and West Ger-
many, Israeli officials in
Bonn said.
They said he told Genscher
that Israel has confidence in
the democratic institutions
that have developed in the
Federal Republic over the
past 40 years and is en-
couraged by the broadening
of the democratic base in
East Germany.
Until fairly recently,
Israeli officials were speak-
ing out against possible
reunification.
Perhaps the strongest
statement was made by
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir during his visit to
the United States in
November.
Shamir said that when the

German people had been
united, "the great majority"
of them "decided to kill mill-
ions of Jewish people, and
anybody could think that if
they will have the oppor-
tunity again, and they will
be the strongest country in
Europe, they will try to do it
again."
Those remarks drew pro-
tests from Chancellor
Helmut Kohl, which led to
an angry exchange of letters
with Shamir.
The Israeli prime minister
wrote, among other things,
"We cannot forget the
images of the cheering
crowds in the '30s and what
they produced. We carry
with us the memories of the
Jews who were massacred in
the Holocaust."
Arens, on an official visit
to West Germany, met with
Genscher for 90 minutes.
The German foreign min-
ister is reported to have told
him he opposes European
Community sanctions
against Israel in the areas of
trade and scientific coopera-
tion.
