Eyewitnesses to Castellano hit . . .

ew York Post head-
line about the "odd
couple" eyewitnesses
— a rabbi and a prostitute —
to the Manhattan slaying of
reputed Mafia czar Paul
Castellano and a top aide.
The twosome were "strolling

arm-in-arm on a Midtown
street" when the gangsters
were slain.
Although not identifying
the two witnesses, the Post
said the rabbi complained to
police that the killings were
"really God's way" of
punishing him since it will
make public his secret liai-
son.

British, U.S. Editorials
Blast Shamir Cabinet

Israel's new hardline
government is no hit with
editorial writers on either
side of the Atlantic. In
the last week, virtually
every editorial in the U.S.
and Britain reflected war
jitters when looking at Yit-
zhak Shamir's new creation.
The Boston Globe, for ex-
ample, in one of the harshest
editorials in the country,
dismissed the new govern-
ment's members as "self-
deluding fanatics." The
Globe also feared that prepa-
rations for a Mideast war
would be "stimulated" if the
coalition adopts the
"unrealistic" plans of its
housing minister, Ariel Sha-
ron, to drive West Bank Pa-
lestinians into Jordan,
where they would overthrow
King Hussein and create
their own state.
The Baltimore Sun fretted
that "Arab belligerence is
not going to cow this
government," while the
London Financial Times
worried that "Palestinian
extremists are talking of
terrorism" and "Arab
leaders are using the word

`war' with greater frequency

Virtually the lone excep-
tion to all this war talk was
the Wall Street Journal,
which praised Shamir for his
"blunt appraisal of 'peace'
proposals," especially since
it is "not evident how many
of them promises peace so
long . . . [as PLO, Iraqi,
Syrian and Libyan leaders]
share that goal."
Daniel Henninger, the
Wall Street Journal's deputy
editor for its editorial page,
said that 'the basis for the
editorial was the Journal's
"long-standing" assessment
that most Arab states are
not interested in negotiating
for peace with Israel.
The editorial, he said, was
also rooted in the democratic
nature of Israel. Labor and
Likud, said Henninger,
"draw legitimacy from the
Israeli electorate. How
American opinion has
reached the point where it
would denounce a popularly
elected government while
implicitly favoring an organ-
ization such as the PLO,
which certainly has no in-
