jurisdiction. But her judg-
ment of the government's
lack of readiness for the tor-
rent of Soviet immigrants
has become consensus.
During the interview,
however, she stressed that
while the government in-
evitably makes mistakes, it
is expending tremendous
amounts of money and effort
to help the newcomers suc-
ceed.
"The good will exists," she
said: "Israel absorbs the
immigrants coming back to
their homeland with open
hearts and arms. I would call
on the Jewish people all over
the world to assist us in cop-
ing with this gigantic
historical task of absorbing
so many newcomers, who
amount to 10 percent of our
population."
On the strictly political
front, when she found that
the Shas party had violated
the Party Financing Law,
she imposed the penalty to
its full severity — a fine of
1.6 million shekels (nearly
$700,000). And after Mrs.
Ben-Porat's water report,
Water Commissioner
Tsemach Ishai, the chief
malefactor in the systematic
waste of Israel's most
precious resource, was fired.
Remembering the popular
reaction to these findings,
representatives of the Likud
government tried to delay
the release of her next an-
nual report until after the
June 23 elections. When
public opinion against that
move was so strong, they
switched course and tried to
push the report forward so the
fallout would dissipate by
polling day.
Mrs. Ben-Porat said she
realizes the politicians' sen-
sitivity to the release of her
annual report so close to
election time, but will not
hurry the report at the ex-
pense of accuracy. Thus, she
plans to publish it about
three weeks earlier than
usual.
In July of next year, her
five-year term will end, and
the Knesset will have to
decide whether to reappoint
her. If she wants another
term, the Knesset almost
certainly wouldn't dare face
the public's wrath by turn-
ing her down. However, Mrs.
Ben-Porat doesn't know if
she wants to continue. She
has other options.

"They don't know what I
know, which is that I am not
suited to the world of poli-
tics," she said. "I know my
limitations."
For Israel, she is the right
person in the right place at
the right time. ❑
