nurprise political activist
Larry Imerman, a Southfield
attorney running in the
LJune 8 Oakland Community
College trustee race.
"Jews have traditionally
been involved in the political
system and in the commun-
ity because of a commitment
they felt to make the com-
munity better," Mr. Imer-
r man says.
In Wayne County, elected
Jewish officeholders are
limited to Detroit City
''-Councilman Mel Ravitz and
State Rep. Burton Leland,
who is facing the toughest

PLO Controls
Nablus Council

Jerusalem (JTA) — Sup-
porters of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization won
_control of the Nablus
Chamber of Commerce in a
vote over the weekend wide-
ly seen as a prelude to the
election of autonomous Pa-
lestinian institutions in the
cadministered territories.
The national list,
dominated by Yassir
Arafat's Al Fatah wing of
the PLO, won 48.5 percent of
the vote in the West Bank's
largest city. The fundamen-
Aalist Islamic bloc got 45
percent.
But the regional election
system allotted the PLO
backers nine of the 12 seats
on the chamber's Executive
and three to the fundamen-
Jalists.
The victory was important
for the PLO nationalists,
who lost elections to the
chambers of commerce in
Hebron and Ramallah.
The chambers are the only
institutions Palestinians in
the territories are permitted
to elect at the present time.
In addition to Fatah, the
, -T) winning list included the re-
jectionist Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine,
the Democratic Front for the
Liberation of Palestine and
the Arab Communist Party.
The victors celebrated by
L p driving around town honk-
' ing horns and waving Pales-
tinian flags.
Considering that Nablus,
with a population of over
100,000, has been a hotbed
of intifada activity, Israeli
troops were out in force to
guard against disturbances.
But the elections were con-
ducted without incident.
