heads of the Israeli political
parties.
"At that time, we will
make a recommendation,
but we have made no such
decision," said Mr. Kaplan.
Mr. Kaplan acknowledged
damage had been done to the
Jewish Agency's reputation
over the affair, though he
became outraged when a
reporter suggested it now
had a corrupt image in the
minds of Israelis.
He said a lot of harm had
been done by inaccurate
media reports and that the
Jewish Agency was con-
sidering what he implied
would be legal action in re-
sponse.
He also criticized the
Israeli system that compels
the police to open a file based
on a complaint, regardless of
its source or legitimacy.
What the consequent in-
vestigation "does to an in-
dividual and organization is
terrifying," he said.
Mr. Kaplan denied that
the serious strains over the
affair meant that the Israel-
Diaspora relationship was a
"shaky" one. He pointed out
that the differences of opi-
nion were not neatly broken
down along Israel-Diaspora
lines, since many Diaspora
Zionists backed Mr. Dinitz.
But in the internal letter
of announcement, he
characterized the affair as
"the most difficult (of) prob-
lems we have ever en-
countered."
In New York, Seymour
Reich, who as president of
the American Zionist
Movement has been one of
Mr. Dinitz's loudest sup-
porters, described the latest
decision as "a sad conclusion
to a lamentable episode.
"It's time to move on and
get it behind us, and for the
Zionist community and the
fund-raising community to
engage in a healing process,
so we can do what we're
supposed to do, which is im-
migration and absorption in
Israel," he said.
An opinion not all that
different was given by a
representative of the fund-
raisers who has been a dele-
gate to the Jewish Agency
Assembly and spoke on con-
dition of anonymity.
"I just think the whole
thing is sad," he said. "That
we got into the this mess,
that we didn't get out of it
earlier, that it was allowed
to drag on and hurt the
credibility of both the person
and the institution."
Mr. Kaplan said the Jew-
ish Agency would have to
contain the damage done
and work to win back trust
that may have eroded. ❑
