Palestinian Killed
By Jewish Settler

Jerusalem (JTA) — A Jewish
settler shot and killed a 20-
year-old Palestinian whose
feet and hands had been
bound after he had stabbed
another settler in the West
Bank.
The shooting in Susia, a
Jewish settlement south of
Hebron, occurred against a
backdrop • of rising right-
wing calls for vigilantism
against Palestinian terror-
ism, which has shaken this
country in a recent wave of
violence.
In a separate incident, two
Israeli park custodians were
injured when Arabs shot at
them in the northern Negev.
In the Susia incident, set-
tler Yoram Shkolnick said
he shot the Palestinian who
was bound because he
spotted a concealed grenade
and feared the Palestinian
planned to use it.
The incident began when
two settlers became
suspicious of a Palestinian
walking around their set-
tlement and took him to the
police for questioning.
On the way to the police in
the settlers' jeep, the Pales-
tinian stabbed one of them
in the shoulder. The two set-
tlers grabbed the man's
knife, got him out of the jeep
and bound him, the army
said.
Mr. Shkolnick arrived on
the scene later, responding
to a radio call for help. He
then shot the Palestinian
several times at close range.
Police have detained Mr.
Shkolnick and are question-
ing him about the shooting.
The army confirmed that a
grenade was found on the
Arab's body and said he had
been wanted by Israeli
security forces for three
years for alleged participa-
tion in violent demonstra-
tions.
The incident came a day
after Israeli tempers flared
over stabbings carried out at
a high school courtyard by a
Palestinian from east
Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, under intense polit-
ical fire for the wave of
violence, called on the public
to fight back by doubling the
number of volunteers in the
nation's civil guard.
He also urged high schools
to organize self-defense pro-
grams for teen-agers to avert
an attack similar to what oc-
curred at the start of the
week.

Police Minister Moshe
Shahal echoed the call,
stressing the importance of
the civil guard as an adjunct
to the regular security forces
in the fight against terror-
ism.
"We are calling on the
people to defend themselves
by volunteering," said Mr.
Shahal. He said he would
like to see thousands more
"guarding themselves, their
neighborhoods.
"This, I think, is the spirit
of the country and we have
to renew it," the police min-
ister said.
The guard has roughly
40,000 volunteers, down
sharply from the 150,000 it
boasted in the 1970s, Mr.
Shahal said.
Outgoing Israeli President
Chaim Herzog called on the
country to unite and allow
the security forces to wage
the war on terrorism.
He said the recent violent
anti-government demonstra-
tions undermined the fight
against Arab violence.
Meanwhile, an Israeli offi-
cer was imprisoned for two
weeks on Tuesday and
suspended indefinitely in
connection with the killing
of a 10-year-old Palestinian
boy the day before.
The boy apparently was
shot while playing with a toy
gun near an army outpost in
the Gaza Strip.

Savir Directs
Ministry

Jerusalem (JTA) — Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres has
appointed Uriel Savir,
former Israeli consul general
in New York, to be director-
general of the Foreign Min-
istry.
Mr. Savir, 40, is to replace
Yosef Hadass, who in turn is
to head the Israeli delega-
tion to the Middle East

multilateral peace talks.

Mr. Savir, scheduled to
take office on May 1, served
as consul general in New
York from 1988 to 1992.
Most recently, he was the
ministry's assistant director-
general for European affairs.
The Cabinet will be asked
to confirm Mr. Savir's ap-
pointment.
Eitan Ben-Tsur, the min-
istry's deputy director-
general, was also competing
for the post, but was asked
by Mr. Peres to remain in his
position.

THE MATZAH OF UNITY

(to be recited at Yachatz - when breaking the middle Matzah)

4.

As we break this matzah and set it aside, we express
our unity with all Jews who have lived in the
former Soviet Union.

Matzah is "the bread of affliction," used on the
road to redemption. As we celebrate Pesach,
the theme of the Exodus resonates in all that
is happening around us.

Jews of the Soviet Union encountered decades
of suppression. Struggling to live as Jews, many
sought to leave for Israel. Many suffered harassment;
some endured prison; some lost their lives.

I

At last, most Jews can leave the country that represented a prison for so
long. We walk with them in their Exodus and commit ourselves to help
them in their quest for a new and better future for themselves and their
children.

We remember the several million Jews who remain behind. We pledge
our vigilance and solidarity with them, as they endeavor to sustain their
community, reaffirm their Jewish identity and resist anti-Semitism.

We pray that all Jews may find freedom this year - in a world without war
- and with Israel at peace. Amen.

Seder Ritual of Remembrance

(to be read after the third of the four ceremonial cups)

U

On the first day of Passover 50 years ago, remnants of the Ghetto of
Warsaw rose up against the Nazis. In their struggle and, for most, their
deaths, they brought redemption to the name of Israel through all the
world.

U

And from the depths of their affliction, the martyrs
lifted their voices in a song of faith in the coming of
the Messiah, when justice will reign among all the
people.

I

All sing ANI MAAMIN ("I believe"), the song of the
martyrs in the ghettos and liquidation camps.
