been waiting for, without
exaggerating, since 1948. I
didn't think I'd be alive when
this happened. There is God
in the sky. I had stopped fol-
lowing the papers, the intifa-
da, the refugee camps, pay-
ing attention to what's going
on. But bless God that we got
a government like this with
Rabin at the head. And
Shimon Peres is the most
brilliant politician," he said.
One cloud darkens that
sky: concern that family
members living in Gaza will
be caught in a potential
blood bath between the PLO
and Hamas after autonomy
becomes a reality.
In the Jaffa flea market,
an elderly Gaza Arab who
would give his name only as
"Haj" looked grim.
"It's going to be a mess,"
he said, shaking his head.
His neighbors in the stalls
around him, who are mostly
Jewish, say that he has been
worried ever since the
Israeli-PLO pact was dis-
closed.
But Hamis Aboulafia,
whose family bakery is a
Jaffa institution attracting
Arabs and Jews alike, said
he firmly believes that Mr.
Arafat and the PLO will be
able to control fundamental-
ist opposition.
"Arafat will maintain con-
trol because the people will
be behind him," he said. "The
people in Gaza are fed up
with their situation, and
they will support him. He
will succeed easily against
the fanatics and the funda-
mentalists.
"Jaffa's
Arabs
are
entrenched in their lives in

the city and firm in their
identity as Israeli citizens.
Residents shake their heads
at the suggestion that they
might leave Jaffa and join
their brethren in a future
Palestinian entity.
"I want to be like the
Jewish Americans," Mr.
Aboulafia said. "They have
full loyalty as citizens of the
United States, but have a
special feeling toward
Israel."

"I didn't think I'd
be alive when this
happened.
There is God
in the sky."

The Newly Designed
1994 DeVille Concours

Lufi Zriek, a Jafet Street
stationery store owner, was
born and raised in Jaffa and
has built his life there.
There's "no way" he would
ever leave.
But Gaza/Jericho first is
just the beginning, Mr. Zriek
said. He wants a compromise
on Jerusalem.
"Because Jerusalem is a
holy city, it can't be given
up," he said. "There is a spir-
itual connection to the place."
As for Palestinians in the
territories and in Arab
countries who dream of
joining the Arabs in Jaffa,
Mr. Shacar said: "There is
no time for talk of dreams in
a time of realistic politics.
This is a new era. These
dreams will have to remain
dreams."
