"We don't think the
Arabs should kill Jews
because God wants it," he
adds. "We would never say
that. Islam condemns any

the prophet himself and in
the holy Koran."
Terrorists, and others

Like pork and alcoholic
beverages, terrorism is
forbidden under Islamic
law. But exactly what con-
stitutes terrorism, Imam
Karoub says, "is in the eye
of the beholder."
Imam Karoub, who
favors a two-state solution
in the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, says members of
Hamas "don't claim that
God is on their side, but
say that God would not
sanctify" illegal occupa-

believes Israelis are doing
in the security zone in
southern Lebanon and
elsewhere, such as Judea
and Samaria. Fighting the
occupier is not terrorism.

Yitzhak Shamir Says
Policy Is Wrong

New York (JTA) — Former
Israeli Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir criticized his
successor, during a meeting
with Jewish organizational
leaders here last week, for
considering a return of the
Golan Heights to Syria.
"I am surprised by the
position of the present
government," Mr. Shamir
told the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
For most of his address, his
first to a New York audience
since his electoral defeat last
June, the opposition Likud
party leader adhered closely
to his policy of not criticizing
the Israeli government
while out of the country.
But responding to a ques-
tion concerning the Golan
Heights, Mr. Shamir cited a
biography he recently read
of former Prime Minister
Golda Meir.
In the last year of her life,
he said, Mrs. Meir told her
Labor Party that no Israeli
government would make a
decision to give up the
Golan. And if it did make
such a decision, Mr. Shamir
quoted Mrs. Meir as saying,
the Israel people would op-
pose it and not allow it.
David Ben-Gurion, Israel's
first prime minister, said
something similar, Mr.
Shamir added.
The 77-year-old former

premier spoke proudly of the
current peace process, laun-
ched in Madrid in October
"It's a fact, and nobody can
make this fact disappear
from the annals of our histo-
ry," he said, noting that
Israel's other great peace
achievement, the Camp
David accords with Egypt,
was also engineered by a
Likud government.
"The Arabs accepted our
terms. It was a great achiev-
ement. For the first time, the
Arabs have accepted to con-
duct negotiations with
Israel, direct negotiations,
with no preconditions," Mr.
Shamir said.
He warned against
weakening the formula,
under which the United
States presides over the
negotiations, supervising
the organizational aspects
'and clearing away obstacles,
but not interfering.
And he heatedly denied
that his intention in laun-
ching the peace process was
only to gain time.
Mr. Shamir did not,
however, have any regrets
over his policy of settling the
administered territories.
He urged the continued
enlargement of "centers of
Jewish population in all
parts of the Land of Israel,"
which would "change the
geography of this land."
