Jerusalem (JTA) — A seri-
ous split has emerged at the
highest levels of Israel's
government as the Cabinet
engaged in a rancorous post-
mortem over the visit of U.S.
Secretary State James
Baker, seen here so far as
having failed.
Evidence of the split first
appeared last week when
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and Foreign Min-
ister David Levy apparently
presented opposing views on
key issues to the secretary of
state.
Mr. Baker flew home
abruptly after learning his
96-year-old mother had died
in Houston. But his toughly
worded parting statement,
read to reporters by State
Department spokeswoman
Margaret Tutwiler, made
clear that Mr. Baker held
Israel responsible for his in-
ability, after three extended
tours of the region since mid-
March, to nail down a pro-
cess that might yield peace.
"Questions remain here in
Israel," the statement said.
"We still need some answers
from the Israeli government
relating primarily to the
modalities before we can
move the process forward."
Mr. Baker made no refer-
ence to "answers" from Arab
leaders during the lengthy
talks with them that took up
most of his tour.
By all accounts, the talks
with the Arabs were even
less forthcoming than the
Israelis. But Mr. Baker
managed to leave his Arab
hosts on an upbeat note, jar-
ringly absent when he left
Israel April 19.
Mr. Shamir said in a radio
interview last week that he
believed Mr. Baker's effort
would continue in the
future. In any event, the
prime minister had "more
serious things to worry
over" than the peace pro-
cess. "The absorption of im-
migrants preoccupies me
more," he said.
Nevertheless, it was the
peace process that
dominated the Cabinet
debate last week.
The stumbling block was
the nature of the regional
conference supposed to usher
in parallel peace talks bet-
ween Israel and its Arab
neighbors and with the Pa-
lestinians.
Mr. Levy's ideas were
closer to the scenario favored
by the United States. But
whatever Mr. Levy offered
by way of concessions to the

secretary was withdrawn by
Mr. Shamir, the Cabinet
learned.
"I have had to say no in my
life before," Mr. Shamir told
the Cabinet. He insisted
there was no crisis looming
with Washington and hoped
the U.S. would persevere in
its efforts.
But reports surrounding
Mr. Baker's departure and
subsequent U.S. media
commentaries have starkly
highlighted the differences
between Washington and
Jerusalem.
According to one American
commentator, Thomas
Friedman of The New York
Times, U.S. officials left the
impression Mr. Baker was
trying to administer some
diplomatic "shock therapy"
when he indicated that Pres-
ident Bush might have to
reassess the U.S. approach
to Middle East peace.
One major Israeli differ-
ence with the Americans
was over their insistence
that the conference they
would host jointly with the
Soviet Union should have
greater scope and longevity
than the brief ceremonial oc-
casion envisioned by Israel.
Mr. Baker proposed that
instead of adjourning, the
conference could reconvene
in six months in case of
deadlocked talks, though
only with the consent of both
parties.
The idea was rejected by the
prime minister himself.
Mr. Shamir's position was
supported by the most
powerful elements of Likud,
including Defense Minister
Moshe Arens and Deputy
Foreign Minister Binyamin
Netanyahu; Likud main-
streamers Moshe Katsav,
the transport minister, and
David Magen, the minister
of economics and planning;
and Knesset member Ben-
jamin Begin, son of the
former prime minister, who
epitomizes to many the
younger generation of Likud
politicians.
Health Minister Ehud
Olmert, deemed a moderate
by Likud standards, backed
Mr. Levy, as did Arye Deri,
the interior minister who
represents the Orthodox
Shas party.
Both sought to minimize
the split between Mr.
Shamir and Mr. Levy. Mr.
Olmert spoke of "differences
of nuance" rather than
substance and predicted that
the peace process would
move forward.
