34 FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, 1990

a young man named
Ya'akov in the Katamon
neighborhood. "They're
making our lives impossible.
We can't even go out of the
house anymore without the
fear of being murdered. It's
us against them,, now —
that's the way they want it,
and that's the way it will
be."
On Tuesday, the Knesset
held a special session.
Originally called to discuss
the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait,
it also dealt with the
murders of Tubol and Kar-
mani.
Many of the lawmakers
drew comparisons between
the two situations, claiming
that they showed the
murderous nature of Arab
political behavior.
Sara Doron, chairperson of
the Likud Knesset faction,
said that it was possible that
the success of the 'Butcher of
Baghdad' has encourged
these horrible attacks on in-
nocent children."
Political leaders from all

"Outsiders think of
this place as a
country, but when
something like this
happens, you can
see that it's really
just one big
family."
American
journalist,

parts of the spectrum de-
nounced the murder, but
there were differing
nuances. Peace Now ex-
pressed disgust at the
"contemptible murder" but
added that, "the only way to
prevent such killings in the
future is to move the peace
process forward."
Some right-wingers,
however, seemed to accuse
the doves, who have recently
been negotiating with pro-
PLO figures, of indirect
complicity in the anti-
Jewish violence.
"Anyone who extends a
hand to the leaders of Arab
terror in the West Bank and
Gaza shouldn't be surprised
to find their hands dripping
with the blood of [Jewish]
victims," said the hawkish
Tzomet Party.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir promised a swift
reaction to the murder of
Tubol and Karmani.
"We will apprehend these
murderers and we won't rest
until peace and security ob-
tain in Jerusalem and
throughout the entire Land
of Israel."

Despite this declaration,
many Israelis were skeptical
that there would be a swift
end to the anti-Jewish
violence. On Monday, the
Chief Sephardic rabbi of
Ramat Gan, Yitzhak
Bardea, ruled that Jewish
law forbids accepting rides
from strangers, particularly
at night, since hitchhikers
may be endangering their
lives. Some parents go even
further.
"I'm afraid to let my 16-
year-old out of my sight",
said a Jerusalem mother of
two. "The Arabs are every-
where. And you can't have a
policeman on every corner."
In the midst of the anger
and fear, the murders of Lior
Tubol and Ronen Karmani
also touched off a feeling of
national mourning. The na-
tional radio broadcast
somber music, and provided
updates to the public
throughout the day.
"I've learned something
about Israel," said an
American journalist who re-
cently moved to Tel Aviv
from New York. "Outsiders
think of this place as a coun-
try, but when something like
this happens, you can see
that it's really just one big
family." ❑

Dowek Named
To Egypt Post

Jerusalem (JTA) —
Ephraim Dowek, the deputy
head of Israel's United
Nations mission, has been
named the new Israeli am-
bassador to Egypt.
Dowek's appointment,
along with several other
ambassadorships, was an-
nounced last week after a
meeting of the Foreign Min-
istry's appointments com-
mittee, the first under the
new minister, David Levy.
The expected appointment
of Likud Knesset member
Zalman Shuval as ambas-
sador to Washington was not
announced at the meeting,
but Shuval said this was a
technical delay and in-
dicated he would be named
shortly.
Other envoys named in-
clude Benad Avita to
Singapore; Yitzhak Shelef to
Canada; Meir Yoffe to
Bulgaria; and Yoel Sher to
Czechoslovakia. All four are
senior ministry men. All the
appointments need two for-
mal endorsements: one by
the Israel Cabinet and the
other by the prospective host
government.
Dowek has already served
a successful, lengthy term in
Cairo as the No. 2 to the first
Israeli ambassador there,
Eliahu Ben- Elissar.
