News

exchange for peace, he,
nonetheless, appeared to
think that a complete
withdrawal from the Golan
— particularly at a time
when Israel is making ter-
ritorial concessions to the
Palestinians — is best put to
a national vote.
Mr. Rabin, who is both
prime minister and defense
minister, said a referendum
is preferable to early elec-
tions. In general elections,
he said, many issues and
many parties come to the
fore, not just the land-for-
peace question on the Golan.
Meanwhile, a decision by
the Israeli daily Ma'ariv to
hold its own referendum on
withdrawal from the Golan
also encountered controver-
sy when a Knesset member
from the Labor Party urged
the public not to cooperate
with it.
Avraham Burg, chairman
of the Knesset Education
Committee, charged that the
referendum was nothing
more than a moneymaking
ploy by Ma'ariv, as a voter
would need to buy a copy of
the paper, which would in-
clude "official" ballots.
Moreover, Mr. Burg
argued, the newspaper's ref-
erendum would enable polit-
ically motivated groups to
buy large numbers of the
newspaper, cast their
"votes" and thereby affect
the result.
The ongoing but rocky
Israeli-Palestinian negotia-
tions being held at the Sinai
border town of Taba ad-
journed last week, after the
two sides drew up a paper
enumerating points of
agreement and dis-
agreement over security
issues, which have held up
implementation of the self-
rule accord.

Arab League
Reviews Issues

Washington (JTA) — The
Arab League is reconsider-
ing elements of the economic
boycott of Israel,
The Arab League's secre-
tary general, Esmat Abdel
Meguid, told Mr. Brown
that, at its next ministerial
meeting in March, the
league would consider
rescinding its so-called
secondary and tertiary
boycotts,
The secondary boycott im-
poses trading sanctions
against companies doing
business with Israel. The
tertiary boycott, in turn, im-
poses sanctions on corn-
panies that trade with firms
that have broken the terms
of the secondary boycott. ❑
