Israel's agriculture min-

desalinization as the most
promising long-term plan.
Yet that is a particularly ex-
pensive solution, and under
the best of circumstances
new plants could not be put
into operation for about five
years.
Even the use of recycled
sewage for agricultural

— it often runs afoul of the
import laws of other coun-

Tel Aviv (JTA)
Israel's
only English-language daily,
the Jerusalem Post, has been
appearing for the past week
in reduced format, without
bylined articles, as striking
editorial staff members
battle what they charge is a
management attempt to
break their union.
Post President and
Publisher Yehuda Levy
published a front-page mes-
sage to readers last week
apologizing for the paper's
makeshift appearance. He
said the staff was striking
"over a number of demands,
most of which the manage-
ment cannot accept."
The long-simmering
dispute arose from the
dismissal two weeks ago of
27 of the Post's more than 70
newsroom employees, osten-
sibly for economic reasons.
But management offered
to re-hire them if they ac-
cepted personal contracts.
That meant abandoning
their union, the Israel Jour-
nalists Association, which
offers job protection and
other benefits in what in
Israel is a small profession
with relatively few open-
ings.
Another 30 staff members
who joined a sympathy
strike were promptly
dismissed, as were 33 ad-
ministrative and press
workers.
Last week, the fired
strikers obtained a tem-
porary restraining order
from the Jerusalem Labor
Court voiding the
dismissals. But further legal
action is expected.
Mr. Levy, a retired Israel

does not accept produce
grown in this way, so
expanding the recycling
system might actually make
agriculture less profitable,
rather than more.
Ironically, the one consis-
tent optimist among all the
voices of alarm is the weath-
erman. In November, the
Israel Meteorological Ser-
vice forecast an unusually
wet winter, making it the
butt of jokes ever since.
The experts might turn out
to be right. But unless the
rain comes soon, it will be a
mixed blessing, at best.
A soggy spring would be
welcomed by hydrologists.
But it could be no less
disastrous for farmers than
the present drought.

Defense Force career officer
with no previous newspaper
experience, was put in
charge of the Post when it
was acquired by the Cana-
dian-based Hollinger news-
paper chain 18 months ago.
He immediately dismissed
30 employees as an economy
measure.
Twenty editors and senior
staff writers later went on
strike to protest his alleged
interference in editorial
matters. All were fired.
Since the Canadians took
over, more than 100 Post
employees have been
dismissed. Mr. Levy ap-
parently intends to pare the
payroll to the bone. He has
said that a proper newspaper
could be produced with 30 to
40 staff members.
The owners sent an effi-
ciency expert from the
United States last month to
examine the operation.
According to the
Jerusalem Report, a new
English-language weekly,
the Post staff believes the
paper's new owners plan to
transform it from a quality
daily with an international
reputation to a clone of the
Meridian Star, a newspaper
of mediocre reputation
published by the Hollinger
chain in Meridian, Miss.
If that occurs, it will be a
setback to the diplomatic
community here.
Since the Hollinger
takeover and appointment of
Yehuda Levy in 1989, the
Post has shifted from a left-
wing editorial policy to sup-
port of the right-wing Likud
Government.
