been heightened by the con-
tinuing mutuality between
Moscow and Washington
over the Gulf crisis in gen-
eral and the Palestinian
issue in particular.
It has also been alarmed
by the increasingly close al-
liance between the Bush
administration and the
moderate Arab world, a
partnership underscored by
Washington's willingness to
supply Saudi Arabia with
some of its most advanced
weapons, which Israel
suspects may be transferred
to hostile front-line states in
the event of a future Arab-
Israeli war.
Not least, it is disturbed by
the dramatic rapprochement
between Washington and
Syria, a state which Israel
regards as having been
formed in the same political
mold as Iraq. The reconcilia-
tion with a country that is
still officially regarded by
Washington as a sponsor of
international terrorism —
and by Israel as its No. 1
enemy — was highlighted
during this month's visit to
Damascus by Secretary of
State James Baker.
Despite soothing
assurances from the United
States that Jerusalem will
retain its qualitative
military edge, the Israeli
government — dogmatically
opposed to any territorial
compromise over the West
Bank and Gaza Strip — has
been left in no doubt that the
rules of the game have
changed: Strings will be
attached to future American
largesse, and the most
powerful of these strings will
be the requirement for far-
reaching territorial and po-
litical concessions once the
dust has settled.
Just as Israel is making
meticulous military prepa-
rations for thepossibility of
a coming war with Iraq, it is
also no doubt making con-
tingency plans in a bid to
escape from its tight corner
and shape the political
dispositions that will prevail
after that conflict.
If past experience is any
guide, it may be reasonably
assumed that Jerusalem is
preparing to "create facts"
which will immutably alter
the reality on the ground to
reflect its perception of its
own vital interests.
Israeli planners may
calculate that their conduct
in the Lebanon War and the
intifada has exhausted their
credit in the bank of interna-
tional goodwill; that their
regional pre-eminence is no
longer an American priority;
that continued U.S. support
will be predicated on unac-

ceptable territorial
demands.
Given all that — and given
the political predisposition
of the most hard-line
government in the 42-year
history of the Jewish state —
political analysts in
Jerusalem may conclude
that if the Middle East map
is to be radically redrawn,
Jerusalem will have a
unique opportunity to par-
ticipate in that process and
have a hand in the revisions.
It is not inconceivable
that, in such political cir-
cumstances and under cover
of military conflict, Israel
will seek simultaneous solu-
tions to both the Palestinian
issue, which poses security
and demographic threats to
the Jewish state, and to the
disputed occupied ter-
ritories, which are the
source of much interna-
tional pressure and obloquy.
This, it might be argued,
could be accomplished by the

Palestinian issue in

simple, if brutal, expedient
of expelling — "transferring"
is the preferred euphemism —
the Palestinian population en
masse from the occupied ter-
ritories across the border
into Jordan.
Such an act would, at a
stroke, remove much of the
1.3 million-strong insurrec-
tionist Palestinian popula-
tion and, simultaneously,
answer the demand for a Pa-
lestinian state, albeit in Jor-
dan (in anticipation of such
an event, perhaps, Israeli
military sources were con-
fidently predicting earlier
this month that King Hus-
sein's "Gucci Kingdom" was
in danger of imminent col-
lapse).
There is yet another, quite
revolutionary, element in
this scenario: Acknowledg-
ing the changed political
reality, Israel may itself
seek to come to terms with
President Hafez Assad's
newly respectable Syria.
Such a relationship would
most likely focus on a solid
