ed and capable of blending in

Also instrumental in track-
ing legislative updates is the
U.S. Catholic Conference.
"We are reading the position
papers by the U.S. Catholic
Conference that will set the
tone, and we will participate in
coalitions," said Mark Seal, as-
sociate executive vice president
for BIAS in New York.
Mr. Seal said that the U.S.
Office of Refugee Resettlement
is working on an ambitious plan
to change the way legal aliens
are settled.
"We are still studying the is-
sue," Mr. Seal said. "Welfare
reform is complex and it is a
huge area. I am not saying this
will not be meaningful reform,
but at this point it is very pre-
"At HIAS, we are more
concerned about the elections
and economic situation in
Russia and the Ukraine," he
said. "We will visit this issue in
a few months when the shape
of reform will be more clear.
"Having watched a number

of legislative items going
through the process, they look

different from finish to start,"
Mr. Seal said. "I don't mean to
downplay the danger this could
have on Soviet refugees. But it
is early."
Though the numbers of
Soviet refugees on welfare
rolls appear to be small, hun-
dreds of thousands of legal im-
migrants, refugees and other
non-citizens on welfare could be
Congressional Budget Office
say if these changes are not
made, legal aliens will cost tax-
payers $21 billion in the next
five years. Other estimates of
state and federal assistance for
non-citizens range up to $11 bil-
lion a year.
Laws state that immigrants
can qualify for welfare benefits
after the three-year sponsor pe-
riod expires. Some alternative
proposals by conservative think
tanks include extending spon-
sor roles to 15 years to a com-
plete elimination of the
program. ❑

Protests Arise
Over Burial Decision

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Protests
have erupted in the Knesset
and throughout Israel over a
decision not to bury a Jewish
Israeli soldier next to the
grave of a Muslim war hero
who fought for Israel in the
early days of the Jewish
The incident received
public attention following a
news report that Israeli
police had found a 26-year-
old army officer dead the day
before in his Tel Aviv
apartment with his service
revolver at his side. Police
declared it a case of suicide
and withheld the officer's
According to the report,
the Defense Ministry Graves
Unit, which is responsible
for choosing and maintain-
ing the gravesites of Israeli
soldiers, subsequently chose
a plot for the officer in the
military section of Tel Aviv's
Kiryat Shaul Cemetery.
The plot was located bet-
ween the grave of a soldier
who had been declared non-
Jewish because his mother-
was not a Jew and the grave
of Lt. Col. Amos Yarkoni, a
Bedouin who led a crack
Israeli commando unit after
he threw in his lot with the
early Jewish state.

Lt. Col. Yarkoni was
buried a few years ago in the
military section of the Tel
Aviv cemetery with full
military honors during a
Muslim ceremony.
Both his original name,
Abd el-Majed Khader, and
his adopted Hebrew name,
Amos Yarkoni, were in-
scribed on his headstone.
According to initial media
reports, Maj. Gen. Navon
decided to bury the officer at
a different site, among Jew-
ish graves.
Labor Knesset member
Ori Orr, chairman of the
Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, disclosed that
Navon had discussed the
matter with Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin and that Mr.
Rabin had upheld Maj. Gen.
Navon's decision.
In interviews conducted by
Israel Radio, a vast majority
of Israeli soldiers — in-
cluding many who described
themselves as Orthodox
Jews — said they firmly
believed that anyone who
fought and died alongside
Jews in the defense of Israel
should be buried among
Jews, regardless of his re-
