now much more strongly
than before that the Arabs
should not be trusted."
Jerusalemite Joyce Klein
experienced Arab-Jewish
tension when a play she
coordinated, Another Face,
was presented several years
ago in Boston.

Written by Palestinians
and Israelis, the play in-
cludes monologues in which
a Palestinian considers bur-
ning his Israeli passport,
and an Israeli who is
shocked when her mother
takes her to see the Arabs,
who "want to kill us with
knives." The girl gazes at an
Arab mother and her
children, then cries, "Those

aren't Arabs. That's a fami- <
ly!"
Fresh memories of the
Gulf crisis have renewed old
wounds of Sabra and
Shatila, the Lebanese
refugee camps where
thousands of Palestinians
were killed, and of Gush Et-
zion, where during the War
of Independence Arab ar-
mies dropped grenades
among crowds of unarmed
Israeli citizens, Ms. Klein
says. This makes a revival of
Another Face unlikely.
Still, Joyce Klein holds
out hope for the future. "All
we need is something,
anything resembling peace,"
she says. "People would be
willing to have very short
memories." 0

Gen. Barak's New IDF:
Leaner,Meaner,Sharper

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A leaner,
meaner, more economical,
better disciplined Israel
Defense Force is the ambi-
tion of its new chief of staff,
Lt. Gen. Ehud Barak.
Less than a month after
taking over from retiring Lt.
Gen. Dan Shomron, Gen.
Barak has announced
changes that military ex-
perts say will mean tighter
control over all branches by
the chief of staff and rigid
economies that will send
thousands of career officers
into civilian life over the
next three years.
Gen. Barak thinks that a
smaller, more compact army
makes a better fighting
force.
He has already announced
the elimination of some
senior posts at General
Headquarters and abroad for
economic reasons.
They include positions
normally occupied by gen-
erals, such as assistant in
charge of operational
evaluation and assistant to
the chief of military intel-
ligence.
Much-coveted liaison and
attache assignments in
Washington, London and
Paris will be abolished.
Some of Gen. Barak's
changes have already raised
hackles. He has announced
greater authority for the
Ground Forces Command,
which reduces the autonomy
and authority of the major
generals who hold the three
regional commands: nor-
thern, central and southern.

Gen. Barak, who is a
ground soldier, is also out to
reduce some of the autonomy
enjoyed by the air force,
military observers say.
Protests have also been
raised against Gen. Barak's
rumored plans to eliminate
several IDF publications, in-
cluding Ma'arahot, a journal
devoted to military theory,
and the popular army week-
ly Bamahaneh.
In addition, orders for
beepers and walkie-talkies
for thousands of officers
have been cancelled to save
money.

Soviet Jews
Attend WJC

Jerusalem (JTA) — Soviet
Jewry officially took its
rightful place among the
Jewish communities of the
world as the ninth plenary
assembly of the World Jew-
ish Congress convened.
Avi Beker, director of the
Israel Section of the WJC,
said that since the organiza-
tion was founded in 1936, an
empty chair has always been
set aside at WJC assemblies
for delegates from the Soviet
Union.
The WJC assembly will
focus on Soviet Jewry.
Awards will be presented to
former Soviet Jewish ac-
tivists and to Jews abroad
who made crucial contribu-
tions to their struggle. The
historical role of Israel's
clandestine unit for Soviet
Jewry will be exposed for the
first time.
