Jerusalem (JTA) — The
government withdrew its
annual budget bill from the
Knesset agenda last week
because of a dispute among
the religious parties in the
coalition that could lead to
its collapse and early elec-
tions.
Officials said the move se-
riously impaired the
parliament's ability to
prepare the budget for its se-
cond and third readings in
the plenum, originally
planned for early next year.
The budget measure pass-
ed its first reading with the
support of several left-wing
opposition factions and
would probably fare as well
in its final readings, thereby
preserving the Likud-led
government.
But Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir obviously does
not relish the idea of being
sustained in office with the
help of the left-wing
Citizens Rights Movement,
Mapam party and Center-
Shinui Movement.
The National Religious
Party, which has five seats
in the Knesset, advised Mr.
Shamir that it will not sup-
port the budget bill as long
as it contains "special fun-
ding" for schools operated by
the haredi, or Orthodox, par-
ties.
The haredi bloc — Shas,
Agudat Yisrael and Degel
HaTorah —which commands
13 votes in the Knesset,
vowed to oppose the budget
if their "special allocations"
are omitted.

All of the parties are Or-
thodox. The NRP, unlike the
haredi factions, is affiliated
with Mizrachi, the religious
Zionist movement.
The issue of special sub-
sidies for haredi institutions
has been a source of public
controversy and political
strife for years. The NRP
blames it for bringing down
hatred and obloquy on the
entire Orthodox estab-
lishment.
It proposes that the re-
ligious school system be
funded out of the general
budget, to ensure fair alloca-
tions and proper supervi-
sion.
Haredi politicians charge
the NRP with political
motives and accuse it of
mounting the most violent
attack "on the education of
Jewish children since the
evil decrees of the Romans."
Education Minister
Zevulun Hammer, an NRP
veteran, said he was unfazed
by the haredi attack and
vowed his party would "fight
to the end" against special
privileges.
He said there was no
chance this year of "buying
off" the NRP with "special
funds" for its own Torah in-
stitutions.

Moreover, Mr. Hammer
thinks it would be no great
tragedy if the elections,
scheduled to be held next
November, are advanced.
The worst that could happen
is that the people will vote a
few months sooner, he said.

Israeli-Born Dane
Cons Arab Embassies

Copenhagen (JTA) — An
Israel-born Danish national
offered to sell an "atomic
bomb" to at least four Arab
countries in what was either
an elaborate confidence
game or a Mossad operation.
Questioned here by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Ya'akov Abramovitz, 51, did
not deny the bizarre story
published in the tabloid

Extra Bladet.
But he dismissed as
ridiculous the newspaper's
allegation that he was ac-
ting as an agent of Mossad,
the Israeli intelligence
agency.
Mr. Abramovitz settled in
Denmark in 1965 and
became a citizen. Shortly
after Israeli aircraft
destroyed the Osirak
nuclear reactor near

Baghdad in 1981, he rented
a post office box under an
assumed name and con-
tacted the embassies of
Algeria, Iraq, Libya and
Syria, the newspaper said.
Mr. Abramovitz posed as
the representative of a secret
organization.
He claimed the bomb was
hidden on the French island
of Corsica. His organization
would deliver it for payment
of $15 million.
A $5 million deposit was
required.
The newspaper published
photographs of four letters
which it said were responses
from the various embassies
to Mr. Abramovitz's offer.
But it did not say whether
any of them made the down
payment — nor did Mr.
Abramovitz.
