FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1991

The Kagans said they
won't trust the Palestinians
until they sever all ties with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. And as of this
week, the couple noted, the
PLO is still the only group
Palestinians want repre-
senting them in negotiations
with Israel over contested
territory.
David Mandelbaum, 27,
who also lives in Har Nof,
remembers asking his Arab
classmates at Wayne State
University why the Palesti-
nians in Israel continue the
intifada.
"They told me it was the
only way in which they could
keep their cause at the
forefront of the news," said
Mr. Mandelbaum, who made
aliyah seven months ago.
"I don't see how, at this
time, Mr. Baker can talk to
these people. Until the Pa-
lestinians change their PLO
affiliation and stop murder-
ing Jews in Israel, we can't
reach any settlement. We
certainly can't give back
historically Jewish land."
Mr. Mandelbaum, who is
studying for his master's in
business administration at
Bar-Ilan University in
Ramat Gan, still has
sleepless nights. Even
though the government has
said it's OK to put away the
gas masks and unseal rooms,
he put off taking down the
plastic in the apartment he
shares with two roommates.
"Just yesterday, there was
a chefetz chashud ( a
suspicious looking object)
down the street. Every day
it's something else. The only
way to have peace is for the
Palestinians to go an Arab
country where they're al-
ready a majority. Like Jor-
dan."
But several miles away,
across the Green Line in the
West Bank, Frank
Loewenberg, another former
Detroiter who lives in
Maalot Daphna, said he
thought the Israeli govern-
ment should use this oppor-
tunity to reach some form of
understanding with the Pa-
lestinians, just not with
members of the PLO.
Dr. Loewenberg, who
earned his Ph.D. in sociology
from Wayne State Univer-
sity and is now a full pro-
fessor at Bar-Ilan Univer-
sity, feels sure that some day
Arabs and Jews can live
together.
He and his wife, Adeline,
one of the first nursery
school teachers at the
Jimmy Prentis Morris Jew-
ish Community Center in
Oak Park, live within walk-
ing distance of Sheikh Jerra,
an Arab village. They have

four children and 14 grand-
children, all of whom live in
Israel. "We've never had
any incidents," Dr.
Loewenberg said. "And I feel
perfectly safe walking
around at night. I have great
faith in humanity and our
capacity to live peacefully
together." However, Dr.
Loewenberg said, if territory
is ultimately traded for
peace, the swap should not
only apply to Israel, but
should also apply to the
Arabs.
"Even-steven," he said. "If
Israel gives up land for
peace, then so should the
other Arab nations. I could
also see other possibilities

"I have great faith
in humanity and
our capacity to
live peacefully
together."

including other sorts of con-
cessions, such as granting
the Palestinians autonomy
or removing IDF forces from
certain areas." His wife,
Adeline, sadly disagrees.
"I used to think like that,"
she said, "but since Jordan
allowed Iraqi Scuds to fly
through their air space, and
now it looks like Syria is
rearming itself with extra
powerful German and
Korean missiles, I have less
and less hope for peaceful co-
existence."
Mrs. Loewenberg said the
only hopeful sign she saw
was the time Mr. Baker
spent in Israel.
"Baker's trip was an open-
ing; he was feeling his way
around," she said. "If only
for the reason that he did
what no other American en-
voy has done — flying over
Israel on a helicopter to see
what we're all talking about.
That really made a terrific
impression on a lot of
Israelis." ❑

Israel Devalues
Its Shekel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel's
new shekel has been
devalued by 6 percent
against a "basket" of foreign
currencies. It was expected
to be reduced by a similar
rate against the U.S. dollar.
The devaluation was or-
dered by the finance min-
ister and the governor of the
Bank of Israel, the country's
central bank, using their
discretionary powers.
One dollar cost 2.5 shekels
beginning March 11.
