Israel-Ethiopia Accord
Contingent On Aliya

Jerusalem (JPFS) — Israel
will be watching carefully to
see if Ethiopia keeps its
pledge to restore Jewish
emigration to the level it
reached this spring, before it
concludes any agreement
with the embattled regime of
Mengistu Haile Mariam.
In an interview with the
New York Times on Nov. 2, a
senior Ethiopian official said
600 Jews, whose names have
been provided by the Israeli
government, would be
allowed to leave this month.
The official suggested that
an unspecified agreement
between the two countries
was reached during talks in
Addis Abba on October 17
and 18.
Uri Lubrani, a veteran
troubleshooter and a special
envoy of Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, met with Mr.
Mengistu at the time to
discuss the delayed exodus of
Ethiopia's Jews. About 500
Ethiopian Jews were allow-
ed to emigrate each month
during the first half of this
year.
Very few Jews have been
allowed to leave Ethiopia
since the start of the
summer, and U.S. congres-
sional leaders have publicly
accused Mr. Mengistu —
who faces an uphill battle
against Eritrean and
Tigrean insurgency
movements — of sharply
reducing Jewish emigration

in order to force Israel to
supply his regime with ad-
vanced weaponry.
In the interview, Kesse
Kebade, secretary of Ethi-
opia's Communist Party
Central Committee and top
envoy in charge of ties with
Israel, said the two countries
had renewed their "strategic
alliance," but denied any
link between arms and
emigration. He said the halt
in the Jewish exodus was
tied to administrative prob-
lems, and that Ethiopia has
now relaxed its rules.
"Israel has provided us
with a list of 600 in-
dividuals," Mr. Kebede said.
"I am 100 percent sure these
600 people will be leaving in
November."
A Foreign Ministry
spokesman refused to com-
ment on Mr. Kebede's
remarks.
There are an estimated
17,000-22,000 Jews in Ethi-
opia, and there have been
reports of disease afflicting
the community.
Ethiopia wants the Bush
administration to help me-
diate an end to its long civil
war. However, Secretary of
State James Baker and
Assistant Secretary for
African Affairs Herman
Cohen have made it clear
that the U.S. will only im-
prove ties with Addis Ababa
if it enables Ethiopian Jews
to emigrate freely to Israel.

Likud-Led Government
Survives Knesset Vote

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
Likud-led government sur-
vived a vote of confidence in
the Knesset last week by a
relatively comfortable
margin of 57-50 with two
abstentions, after a day of
behind-the-scenes drama in-
volving two Orthodox par-
ties.
The vote was called on
seven motions, submitted by
Labor and other opposition
parties, assailing the
government's handling of
the immigrant absorption
process. The motions alleged
that the various government
ministries dealing with ab-
sorption are uncoordinated,
placing the historic wave of
immigration in jeopardy.
Last month, the govern-
ment survived a motion of no
confidence in its foreign
policy by a mere two votes
because of opposition within
the far-right Moledet party
and failure to win support

from the entire religious
bloc. This time there were no
such defections.
Labor Chairman Shimon
Peres had met privately over
the weekend with the
Chasidic rabbis of Vishnitz
and Sadagora, in an effort to
court the Agudat Yisrael
party's votes and deter it
from joining the Likud
government, which it has
supported while officially
remaining in the opposition.
Separately, Labor held
secret contacts with Rabbi
Ovadia Yosef, spiritual
leader of the Shas party,
which is a part of the Likud-
led coalition. There was a
stretch of hours when it
seemed the Sephardic sage
would instruct Shas' five
members to secede from the
coalition and vote against
the government.
Shas has been threatening
to quit the government be-
cause of the ongoing police
