M

onday's decision by
Yitzhak Rabin's
government to
release 100 of the
expelled Hamas activists
was welcome news to pro-
Israel activists in Washing-
ton who were girding for
United Nations action im-
posing sanctions against the
Jerusalem government.
More importantly, it was
the first solid indication of
how the Clinton administra-
tion plans to handle the in-
evitable differences of opi-
nion with Israel's leaders.
And so far, Jewish leaders
are happy with what they
have seen.
Secretary of State Warren
Christopher was praised for
his quiet efforts to avert a
showdown at the United
Nations. These included pri-
vate warnings to the Rabin
government that the
Mideast peace process would
be jeopardized unless a com-
promise could be worked out,
and assurances that Wash-
ington would veto any U.N.
measure imposing sanctions
on Israel.
"This could be the signal
of a new era in U.S.-Israeli
relations, one in which we
decide to resolve differences
not by anger and confronta-
tion, but by sensitivity and
dialogue," said Abraham
Foxman, executive director
of the Anti-Defamation
League. "Credit has to go to
Christopher and to [U.S.
ambassador to the U.N.
Madeleine] Allbright. They
listened to what Israel had
to say, and they acted fair-
ly."
Other sources here say Mr.
Christopher expressed a
good understanding of the
dangers posed by Islamic
fundamentalism in his
phone conversations with
Mr. Rabin.
"It is important to note
that Christopher was willing
to talk about a compromise,
not just a retreat by the
Israelis," said an official
with one pro-Israel group
here. "That was a signal
that will resound in
Jerusalem, no matter how
this turns out."
Monday's compromise
came after frantic efforts by
Jewish groups and Israel's
friends in Congress to stave
off the expected U.N. resolu-
tion. Among these was a

Warren Christopher: Praised for
empathizing with Israel.

letter signed by Reps. Nit
Lowey, D-N.Y., Charle
Schumer, D-N.Y., Pete
Deutsch, D-Fla., and E. Cla
Shaw, R-Fla., asking th
administration to oppos
any UN sanctions agains
Israel and to veto them,
necessary.
Ms. Lowey also lashed ou
at U.N. general secretar
Boutros Boutros-Ghali's cal
for sanctions. "Once again,"
she said, "the dangerou
double standard in the
Mideast has reared its ugly
head. Where was the U.N.
when Kuwait expelled
400,000 Palestinians?"

Jackson Bids
Adieu to Shoval

Jesse Jackson continues try-
ing to mend fences with the
Jewish community.
Last week, the Rev.
Jackson joined columnists,
politicos and diplomats at a
reception honoring Israeli
ambassador, Zalman. Shoval,
who returned to Israel today.
And like the politician he is,
Mr. Jackson spent much of
his time shaking every hand
in sight.
Mr. Shoval's replacement
is Itamar Rabinovich, who
headed the Israeli team that
negotiated with the Syrians
during recent rounds of the
bilateral Mideast.peace
talks. The Israeli embassy
was preparing this week for
what will almost certainly
be a significant change in
diplomatic style.
