His proposals included the
deportation of terrorists and
their supporters, the demoli-
tion of their homes, the
death penalty for brutal ter-
rorist murders and the eas-
ing of requirements for gun
licenses for certain people.
Mr. Rabin, for his part, re-
jected Mr. Netanyahu's pro-
posals, saying they would fly
in the face of rulings by
Israel's High Court of
Justice.
The prime minister also
avoided the highly con-
troversial wording he used

in a speech Wednesday in
which he said it is important
to prevent a "Palestinian
swarm among us."
The widely reported
speech was about the impor-
tance of renewing the prin-
ciples of Jewish labor and
self-reliance in the face of
the closure of the territories.
"Now is a time when we
can bring about substantial
changes through separa-
tion," said Mr. Rabin. "We
must see to it that Palestin-
ians do not swarm among us,
so that the Jews begin to
work and increase their abil-
ity to do so."

Ehud Olmert
Runs For Mayor

Jerusalem (JTA) — Likud
Knesset member Ehud
Olmert has made a long-
expected announcement that
he will run for mayor of •
Jerusalem against the pop-
ular Teddy Kollek, who has
held the post for the past 28
years.
Mr. Olmert, 47, a former
Cabinet minister, has said
he respects and even ad-
mires Mr. Kollek's record,
but insists the time has come
for the 83-year-old mayor to
quit.
Mr. Olmert proposes to run
in the election later this year
at the head of a broad slate
of public figures, backed by

Ehud Olmert

the Likud party but formally
under the banner of a more
inclusive coalition faction.
However, Mr. Olmert must
first secure the support of
the local Likud branch, fen-
ding off a possible challenge
from another Likud
Jerusalemite, Knesset
member Reuven Rivlin.
Mr. Rivlin has yet to an-
nounce whether or not he
will contest Mr. Olmert's
candidacy and try to force a
full-fledged local primary
election among registered
Likud voters.
Mr. Olmert says he will
face off against Mr. Rivlin in
whatever forum the local

party branch decides.
Mr. Olmert is the scion of a
prominent family, known for
its right-wing Zionist ideol-
ogY, from the agricultural
village of Binyamina in the
center of the country.
Although in past years
candidates faced a tough job
in beating the enormously
popular Mr. Kollek, the race
is seen as wide open this
year since it is widely
suspected that Mr. Kollek, if
successful, would retire soon
after the election and turn
over the mayoralty to a
hand-picked successor.
In fact, Mr. Kollek an-
nounced last year that he
was quitting public life, but
was persuaded to run for
mayor again by Labor Party
officials clearly alarmed at
the prospect of losing control
of the capital city of
Jerusalem.
With Labor in power na-
tionally, no high-profile and
popular Labor candidate
came forward to contest the
Jerusalem mayoralty.
Mr. Kollek himself favors
one of his deputies, Amos
Mar-Haim, as his eventual
successor. But opinion polls
showed that Mar-Haim, seen
as a capable yet lackluster
administrator, had little
chance against a well-known
politician like Mr. Olmert.
This situation prompted
t e Labor Party leadership's
gent pleading to the aged
Mr. Kollek to run again.
In national elections, the
Likud has always led the
field in Jerusalem.
But Mr. Kollek's
magnetism and proven
record has enabled: him to
reverse the trend tIme and
again in the munk-ipal elec-
tions.
