guarantees — another Rabin
achievement — haven't been
used to help them. A tangible
sign of this anger has been the
anti-government demonstra-
tions by Soviet immigrants that
have grown bigger than ever,
with one recent protest in
Jerusalem drawing some 15,000
people.
"They definitely wouldn't vote
for Labor now — they feel ma-
nipulated," Mr. Kosharovsky
said. "Not much has changed,
it's the same absence of concrete
deeds and real care. The Likud
failed to persuade the immi-
grants that it could do a better
job than Labor, but Bibi Ne-
tanyahu is a popular leader, and
if he can find a way to commu-
nicate effectively with them, I
think he can get their votes."
Shlomo Maslawi, a Tel Aviv
Sephardi activist, said he's hear-
ing exactly the same opinions
from his people.
"There's been no improve-
ment. The jobs open are the low-
paid ones left by the
Palestinians, in construction, in
agriculture, and the Russian im-
migrants are getting priority in
hiring," Mr. Maslawi said. "Peo-
ple are saying they made a mis-
take voting Labor, and they're
angry; they're turning to Ne-
tanyahu because he's the rising
power."
The issue of peace took a back
seat to jobs and safety in Labor's
campaign, but since Mr. Rabin
came to power, it has been his
main focus, and this has cost
him.
The peace negotiations ap-
pear to be going nowhere —
which is where they ended up
under the Likud - but there is
some public perception that now,
unlike before, Israel is making
concessions to the Palestinians
and Syrians, and getting noth-
ing in return.
Even if virtually all of the
"concessions" seem to be only
about procedural nitpicking, one
of them is serious business — Is-
rael is now on the record as
ready to give up at least part,
maybe a big part, of the Golan
Heights in return for peace with
Syria.
This is a card Mr. Rabin kept
face-down during the campaign,
and the Golan settlers, who used
to be a strong pocket of Labor
support, have turned furiously
against him, demonstrating up_
and down the country, and win-
ning the sympathy of many La-
bor voters.
The Golan settlers have be-
come the spearhead of the right-
wing opposition's noisy,
street-level campaign to depict
the government as "leftist" and
"surrender ist."
Interestingly, this so-called
"leftist" government's three most
successful, popular moves — the
December expulsion of the
Hamas activists, the March do-

sure of the territories, and the
arrests, culminating in early
June, of 124 of Hamas's worst
killers — were more boldly K
"hawkish" than anything the
Likud ever managed during the
intifada. But labels have a way
of sticking.
To mark the anniversary of
the Rabin "upheaval," the daily
newspaper Ma'ariv assigned a
team of reporters and editors to
examine the government's per-
formance to date. It also com-
missioned a public opinion poll
to gauge the administration's
popularity.
Ma'ariv, the most rightward-
leaning of the Hebrew dailies, K
came to the conclusion that the
government, on the whole, was
performing well, but, as the poll
showed, the Israeli people were
unimpressed.
The survey found 33.8 percent
graded the government's per-
formance "bad" or "very bad,"
while only 24.6 percent called it
"good" or "very good." The re-
mainder termed it "average."
Furthermore, 50.4 percent
thought the government should
fall. And perhaps most telling-
ly, 71.4 percent said the Rabin
administration "had not fulfilled
the expectations placed upon it."
Ma'ariv's verdict: 'The results
on the ground are positive:
things are being done, accom-
plishments are being made,
there is potential. But what ex-
ists on the ground is not seen by
the public."
Evidently, when you're told to
anticipate an upheaval, and all
you get is a tremor, it can feel N
like nothing at all has moved. 111

Activity Banned
On Yarkon River

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
Health Ministry has banned
fishing, boating and camp-
ing on the Yarkon River,
Israel's only major river
apart from the Jordan,
following the discovery of
thousands of dead fish in the
waterway.
Experts examining the
area have so far been unable
to find the source of an ap-
parent sewage spill
polluting the narrow river,
which was converted only
months ago into a recreation
area after a thorough dredg-
ing and cleanup operation
following years of neglect.
The Yarkon rises near
Petach Tikvah and flows
into the sea in north Tel
Aviv, where residents have
been complaining about the
smell from the dead and rot-
ting fish.
