Jerusalem (JTA) — The
leaders of the Jewish Agency
for Israel have asked the
United Jewish Appeal to
raise $700 million over three
years as the next phase of
Operation Exodus, but it ap-
pears that the actual goal for
this special campaign will be
considerably lower.
Jewish Agency leaders
Mendel Kaplan and Simcha
Dinitz asked the United
Jewish Appeal and the
organization that raises
money for the agency out-
side the United_States,
Karen Hayesod, to agree to a
$1 billion goal for what is be-
ing called "Exodus II."
UJA is being asked to
raise $700 million and
Keren Hayesod $300 mill-
ion. The $1 billion request
was made last week during
sessions of the agency Board
of Governors.
Mr. Kaplan, who chairs
the Board of Governors, said
that even if this billion
dollars is raised over the
next three years, the agency
will still be short several

hundred million dollars for
its programs of immigration
and absorption, education,
settlement and Diaspora
Jewish education.
The Board of Governors
approved a budget of $555
million for the nine months
of fiscal year 1991, which
starts April 1. The fiscal
year, which normally runs
from April to March is being
switched to correspond to the -
calendar year.
ipagot
anticipates that 225,000
Soviet inainigrants will come
to Israel during this period.
The Board of Governors
decided to pare down regular
Jewish Agency programs
and institute economy mea-
sures, in order to make more
money available for Soviet
aliyah and immigrant ab-
sorption.
The agency covers the full
cost of transporting the
Soviet immigrants and their
belongings to Israel, as well
as a portion of their living
and basic absorption ex-
penses during their first
year in Israel.

Palestinians Await
The New World Order

Jerusalem (JTA) -- Influen-
tial Arab leaders in the ad-
ministered territories are
beginning to recognize the
need for a "new Palestinian
order" in the aftermath of
the Persian Gulf war, within
the context of the larger
"new order" that is likely to
emerge in the Middle East.

Some are quietly sug-
gesting that the Palestin-
ians scale back their aspira-
tions for an independent
state and be prepared to seek
some measure of autonomy
over the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.

Already there are signs of
distancing between the local
Palestinian leadership in
the territories and the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization leadership, which
resides overseas.
While the Palestinians in
the territories may continue
to accept Yasir Arafat as a
symbolic "president of
Palestine," his authority is
increasingly being challeng-
ed.
But Saddam Hussein of
Iraq will continue to be a
factor. The Palestinian
masses who hailed him as

their savior will not easily
admit they backed the
wrong "hero."
Palestinians do not readily
admit mistakes. They simp-
ly rationalize that there was
"no alternative."
However humiliating the
defeat that awaits Hussein
at the hands of the allied
military coalition, he will be
revered by the Palestinians.
"The Western mind will
say that Saddam committed
suicide. But the Arab mind
will say he died a martyr,"
Dr. Mehdi Abdul- Hadi, head
of the Palestine Academic
Center for International Af-
fairs in East Jerusalem, told
the Jerusalem Post this
week.
There is some rational dis-
sent from that viewpoint,
notably from Elias Freij, the
veteran mayor of
Bethlehem, who spoke out
from the start against Iraq's
occupation of Kuwait.
But voices of reason are a
rare commodity in Palestin-
ian political discourse -- at
least in terms of Israeli
thinking. Freij's influence
does not extend much
beyond his office in Manger
Square.
