ensions between
Israeli and American
leaders may be se-
verely strained thanks to re-
cent events in the Middle
East, but Israeli journalist
Menashe Shaul believes the
relationship will eventually
return to normal.
Mr. Shaul, a political
commentator for the Israel
Broadcasting System, who
has followed political devel-
opments in the Middle East
for three decades, said he is
confident that the American
adminstration and the
Israeli government will
overcome the crisis.
"It's a question of time.
This crisis will pass," he told
130 people during an Oct. 25
speech at the Bloomfield
Public Library sponsored by
the Greater Detroit Chapter
of Hadassah.
For the past few years,
American officials, in-
cluding President George
Bush and Secretary of State
James Baker, have asked
Israel to negotiate with the
Palestinian Liberation
"We refuse to have deal-
ings with the PLO and
(Yassir) Arafat," Mr. Shaul
said. "We know of at least
two Arafats. He speaks in
two languages and appears
in two faces.
"Which Arafat do we have
to believe? The one who re-
nounces terrorism in
December 1988 in Geneva or
the one who practices terror-
ism every day and every
night in the West Bank and
Gaza in Israel.," Mr. Shaul
said. The journalist then
read to the audience from a
flyer distributed Oct. 11 to
Palestinians on the West
"From now on, there is no
easy way," the flyer stated.
"The stone is not useful.
Therefore, at this stage, it is
necessary to use weapons, to
light fires, to stab with
knives, and to destroy every-
thing possible without
"We have a dilemma. We
can't believe the PLO or
Arafat," Mr. Shaul said.
Another issue, he said,
which has long divided
American administrations
from Israeli leaders is the
status of Jerusalem. Despite
President George Bush's in-
sistence that east Jerusalem
is an occupied territory,
Israelis firmly believe the

city must be united and
under Israeli control, Mr.
Shaul continued.
The recent United Nations
condemnation of Israel for
the killing of more than 20
Palestinians at the Temple
Mount has further strained
the relationship between
Jerusalem and Washington,
D.C., Mr. Shaul said. The
United States voted with the
United Nations Security
Council to condemn Israel
for the shooting and for
Israel's refusal to allow a
United Nations team to in-
vestigate the event.
While admitting Israel
made a mistake in shooting
the Palestinians, Mr. Shaul
criticizes the Security Coun-
cil for forgetting that Pales-
tinians began the confronta-

"Israel deserves
more support from
the American

Menashe Shaul

tion by throwing stones at
Jewish worshipers. He lash-
ed out against the United
Nations and defended
Israel's right to refuse an in-
vestigative team after the
incident was condemned.
Mr. Shaul said he
understood that the United
States felt it necessary to
condemn Israel as a way of
preserving the Arab coali-
tion in the Persian Gulf.
Although he is optimistic
about a peaceful settlement
in the Persian Gulf, Israel
can not afford to let its guard
down, he said. "If there is
war and Israel is destroyed
that would make state 22 for
the Arabs.
"Israel deserves more sup-
port from the American ad-
ministration," Mr. Shaul
"The differences between
Washington and Jerusalem
must be overcome, he said.
"We must achieve a new co-
operation. We must respect
each other. We must find
people who will bring both
sides together. All factions
involved in this crisis have
to act, the Israeli leaders,
the American leaders and
you, the American Jewry."
He hopes American Jews
continue to support Israel.
"We need American Jews
to come to Israel amid the
crisis," Mr. Shaul said. "It's
not a question of money. It is
a question of support. 0
