U.S. Provides
Funds For Territories

Washington (JTA) — In
what appears to be another
effort to bolster the standing
of the Palestinian delegation
currently negotiating here
with Israel, the United
States has announced it will
make up to $14 million
available for job creation
programs and other projects
in the West Bank and Gaza
In announcing the aid, the
State Department said it
was "encouraged by the
resumption of the bilateral
negotiations" and believes
the aid package "will help
promote progress in these
The announcement is seen
here as the latest attempt to
provide the Palestinian
negotiators with concrete
dividends for returning to
Washington, in order to
strengthen them against re-
jectionists at home, such as
the Islamic fundamentalist
Hamas movement.
The announcement came
as the Palestinians and
other Arab parties to the
peace talks agreed to con-
tinue this round of negotia-
tions with Israel for at least
another week.
The Israeli-Palestinian
talks appeared finally to be
making progress this week,
as the negotiators tackled
some substantive issues in-
cluding the interim agree-
ment for Palestinian self-
government, water and land
rights, and humanitarian
Palestinian spokeswoman
Hanan Ashrawi, in a fairly
upbeat briefing for
reporters, said that the talks
had reached a "very difficult
phase" because the
negotiators were now deal-
ing with some "critical and
central" issues that would
take time and persistence.
Later in the day, though,
Ms. Ashrawi was quoted as
saying that the Palestinians
were disappointed with the
discussions that had taken
place on human rights con-
cerns in the territories and
that the Palestinians would
not participate in further
talks on the issue until next
The U.S. assistance pro-
gram for the Palestinians
will be funded by the Agency
for International Develop-
ment and "will reflect
priorities identified by Pa-
lestinians," the State

Department said in a state-
The program is intended to
promote job creation on pro-
jects including road con-
struction, sewage treatment
facilities and schools.
"Our goal," the statement (
said, "is to begin to alleviate I
current economic problems.
and to create infrastructure
on which the long-term
economic future of the ter-
ritories can be built."
The United States is en-
couraging other countries to
begin similar aid programs
in the context of the peace
In Rome, where the
multilateral working group '=(
on Middle East economic de-

this week, there were indica-

Dutch Minister
Visits Israel

Amsterdam (JTA) — Dutch

Justice Minister Ernst
Hirsch Bailin flew to Israel
last week for a five-day visit 1,

that included talks on the
cooperation between the two
countries in the fields of
police and crime control.
The visit originally was to
have taken place last
January, but Dutch Foreign
Minister Pieter Kooymans,
two days after coming into
office, forbade the visit in
view of Israel's expulsion of
415 Islamic militants from
the administered territories.
The objection has apparently
now been lifted.
In Israel, Mr. Ballin
delivered a lengthy speech to
the Knesset Foreign Affairs
Committee, which was
published in full in the Prot-
estant daily Trouw.
Avoiding any reference to
the Middle East, Mr. Ballin I
dealt with the present moral
and political crisis in
Europe, including the
Netherlands, and the lack of
common ideals.
The visit was also to in-
clude a trip to the Israeli Vi
Supreme Court.
Mr. Ballin's father, a Jew-
ish professor of law who `-
came to Holland as a refugee
from Germany, married a
Dutch non-Jewish woman.
