Shamir Welcomes
End Of Coup

Jerusalem (JTA) —
Reports that the coup by
hard- liners in the Soviet
Union had collapsed were
warmly greeted here by
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir.
He urged Soviet Jews,
nevertheless, to come to
Israel as quickly as possible.
President Bush confirmed
that Mikhail Gorbachev had
been restored to power as
president of the Soviet
Union. Mr. Bush made the
announcement from his
vacation home in Ken-
nebunkport, Maine, after
speaking to Mr. Gorbachev
by telephone.
Israel welcomes that news
"from the depth of our
hearts," Mr. Shamir said.
He said he had "prayed"
that the situation in the
Soviet Union would not
degenerate into violence,
"because history shows that
in violent times, the Jews
suffer."
Mr. Shamir made his
remarks in radio interviews
and to members of the
United Jewish Appeal's
Prime Ministers Mission,
presently in Jerusalem. -
He said he was glad he had
chosen to withhold public
comment about the coup
when it occurred Monday,
preferring to let events take
their course before going on
record with an Israeli reac-
tion.
Mr. Shamir said it was too
early to know whether
events in Moscow would af-
fect the Middle East peace
conference that the United
States and Soviet Union had
hoped to convene in October.
The prime minister said he
hoped "no new obstacles"
would appear, but he declin-
ed to elaborate.
Non-governmental
observers speculated that
the uncertain future of
Soviet Foreign Minister
Alexander Bessmertnykh
might affect the conference
schedule.
Mr. Bessmertnykh could
be ousted because of his am-
biguous behavior during the
crisis. His claim that illness
indisposed him after Com-
munist hard-liners attemp-
ted to oust President
Mikhail Gorbachev was not
convincing to many.
Analysts here said Mr.
Bessmertnykh had sat on
the fence to see which side
emerged victorious from the
Kremlin power struggle
before declaring his
allegiance.

Israel Radio reported from
Moscow that the Russian
parliament, which opposed
the coup, received hundreds
of supportive cables and
telephone calls from or-
dinary Israelis during the
three days of crisis.
Mr. Shamir reiterated a
call, made earlier in the day
by Housing Minister Ariel
Sharon, for every Soviet Jew
to come to Israel without
delay.
"I feel this is the need of
the hour. There is no doubt
about it," he said, adding
that Israel can absorb as
many Jews as can come
here.
