Christian Quarter

that had leased it from the
Greek Orthodox Church.
Levy expressed defiance
over the criticism, asserting
that "it is the right of Jews
to live everywhere, and to
purchase or rent property in
all parts of the land of Israel,
and especially in
Jerusalem."
The 150 Orthodox Jewish
settlers said they had no in-
tention of leaving, though a
district court in Jerusalem
has ordered them evicted.
The leaders of the Chris-
tian churches in Israel an-
nounced plans to close all of
their shrines today to protest
the Jewish settlement. The
closing of the shrines is an
unprecedented move.
It is feared in the Ameri-
can Jewish community that
the anger over Israel's ac-
tions may jeopardize the
Shamir government's re-
quest for $400 million in
housing loan guarantees
from the United States for
the resettlement of Soviet
Jews. This request is in ad-
dition to the $3 billion in
loans and assistance provid-
ed for military and economic
aid.
Secretary of State James
Baker testified before Con-
gress last month that the
administration would insist
on guarantees from
Jerusalem that U.S. loans
would not be spent on hous-
ing in the territories.
Administration officials
feel that the caretaker
° Israeli government is acting

less than responsibly, and
they are clearly angered
over the recent settlement
issue in the Christian
Quarter. The relationship
between Israel and America
had already taken a
downward turn over the
failure of Jerusalem to take
a positive step in regards to
Washington's suggestions
regarding the peace pro-
posal.
