(KEREN KAYEMETH
LEISRAEL) INC.

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
six-month investigation of
alleged malfeasance on the
part of Interior Minister
Arye Deri seems to have
produced little more than
frayed nerves and a widen-
ing rift between the national
police and their political
bosses.
The 31-year-old Mr. Deri,
the youngest member of
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's Cabinet and a ris-
ing star of the Orthodox
Shas party, threatened to
resign because he is "sick
and tired" of the ongoing
police inquiry, which has so
far produced neither formal
charges nor exoneration.
He was persuaded by Mr.
Shamir to stay in the
government. According to
some reports, the prime min-
ister assured him the in-
quiry was drawing to a close,
but there was no informa-
tion from the police to bear
that out.
Mr. Deri is alleged to have
illicitly funneled his min-
istry's 'funds to Shas-
affiliated institutions. He
has also been accused of per-
sonal improprieties in con-
nection with the purchase of
apartments in Jerusalem.
Meanwhile, the police are
furious over Police Minister
Ronni Milo's threat to take
action against unnamed
high-ranking officers for
allegedly leaking details of
their inquiry.
Mr. Milo was reportedly
angered because press pho-

tographers were at police
headquarters when a former
senior Shas official,
Yehezkel Sehayek, was due
to report for questioning.
Mr. Sehayek is a personal
aid to Rabbi Eliezer Schach
of Bnei Brak, Shas' spiritual
mentor. Mr. Milo demanded
to know who gave the media
advance information that he
would be present.
Sources close to Police
Commissioner Ya'acov
Terner said the leak came
from Shas, not the police.
They intimated that Mr.
Milo was exerting unfair
pressure on the commis-
sioner and on other top offi-
cers for political reasons.
Sources close to Mr. Deri
have countered with charges
that the commissioner is
deliberately dragging out
the investigation to prolong
his tenure in office.
They said that with 50 de-
tectives working on the Deri
case, the inquiry would have
ended long ago were it not
Mr. Terner's "insurance
policy."
The sources claimed Mr.
Terner knows that Mr. Milo
and Mr. Shamir would like
him to resign. They can not
however, force the issue
while the Deri case is still
ongoing because it would
look like political interven-
tion by the senior coalition
party on behalf of a junior
partner.
Shas' five votes are vital to
maintain Mr. Shamir's
Knesset majority.

Surrogate Birth Raises
Controversy On Kibbutz

Jerusalem (JPFS) — Joy
over the birth of twins to a
non-Jewish surrogate
mother in California has
been mixed with concern
over ethical, religious and
internal complications at
Hagoshrim, a northern
Galilee kibbutz, which re-
portedly paid $80,000 so that
an infertile kibbutz couple
could have more children.
Pnina and Yoram Ber,
both in their early 40s, have
an 18-year-old son, but since
then, have gone through 14
miscarriages because of an-
tibodies produced against
the fetuses.
The twins, born in the
U.S., are now in Hagoshrim,
but the publicity has caused
the parents and the kibbutz
considerable trouble. Dozens
of infertile couples have

called the kibbutz (and the
Health Ministry) to ask for
guidance on how to go about
arranging surrogate paren-
thood, and the rabbinical es-
tablishment is divided over
whether the twins are in fact
Jewish.
In addition, the son of an-
other kibbutz couple claims
that the settlement "hid"
the surrogacy arrangement
from the kibbutz members,
disclosing only that the Bers
had gone to the U.S. several
times at communal expense
"to make it possible for
Pnina Ber to become preg-
nant."
Despite requests from the
Jerusalem Post, no comment
from the kibbutz secretariat
or from the Ber family was
forthcoming.
