devoted to improving the eco-
nomic situation in the Middle
East).
Yet back in Gaza, where the
economic crisis has reached crit-
ical proportions, the news had lit-
tle positive impact.
For their chronic unreliabili-
ty—due to the repeated closing
of the Gaza Strip—has made it
difficult for many of the 27,500
Gazan laborers holding work per-
mits to find jobs in Israel anyway.
Thus for all the pomp and ele-
gance of King Hassan's hospital-
ity, and for all the satisfaction
that Israeli businessmen felt at
being courted by Arab colleagues
from the Atlantic to the GuLf, the
bottom line of the Casablanca
Conference was a mundane truth
that Israelis already know.
If economics are the key to
peace, as . the conventional
wisdom has it, then only a swift
and highly visible improvement

ust as Israel was emerging
from its two weeks of man-
ic depression - with the
Nachshon Waxman kid-
napping and murder, -then the
Tel Aviv bus bombing, then the
peace treaty with Jordan and the
Clinton visit - the national psy-
che was jarred by yet another
episode. A very depressing one.
On the morning of Saturday,
Oct. 30, Hezbollah guerrillas at-
tacked an Israel Defense Forces
outpost in South Lebanon with
machine guns and mortars. The
Israeli soldiers, mainly elite in-
fantrymen of the storied Givati
Brigade, were taken totally by
surprise - in broad daylight.
Three of them ran. The others
neither charged the attackers nor
chased them when they with-
drew. One soldier, Almog Klein,
was killed.
The guerrillas planted a
Hezbollah flag in an IDF bunker
and filmed the action with a
video camera they'd brought
along to the battle. The scene was
broadcast that night on Lebanese
television and the following night
on Israeli TV.
As might be imagined, there
was an outcry. For most of the
week, the "disgrace" in South
Lebanon was the main topic of
Israeli political conversation.
How could this happen? Was this
an "isolated breakdown," as the
government and the army
termed it, or did it point to some
general deficiency in the IDF or
even in the society as a whole, as
most observers felt? Whichever
it was, people here felt humiliat-

in the Palestinian, and especial-
ly the Gazan, economy can en-
sure Israel's peace of mind. On
this score, however, everyone
from Arafat, Rabin, and Peres to
the U.N., the World Bank, and
the donor countries has simply
failed to deliver.
Thus in some ways it appears
that in its enthusiasm for a long-
coveted reconciliation not just
with its immediate neighbors but
with the broader Arab world, Is-
rael has run ahead of itself. For
the most pressing question in the
wake of the Casablanca summit
is not how to maintain the mo-
mentum of peace-making and
proceed with the building a "new
Middle East" but how to keep the
foundering Palestinian Author-
ity in charge and intact. And it's
not at all certain that the Israeli
government has a clear strate-
gy for addressing that key and
fundamental challenge.

ed and infuriated that such a dis-
aster could occur in the Israeli
Army, the pride of the country,
an army legendary for its courage
and capability.
But, as was pointed out by
many IDF and government lead-
ers, this wasn't the first time the
army hadn't lived up to its repu-
tation. "I can give you a long list
of similar incidents that occurred
in the history of the IDF," said
Labor MK Ori On,
chairman of the Knesset's For-
eign Affairs and Defense Com-
mittee, and a former army
general in command of the
Lebanese front.
Haifa University Professor
Yoav Gelber, a historian and au-
thority on the IDF, went down the
highlights, or lowlights, of the list:
* the "Night of the Hang-Glid-
ers" in late 1987, when Palestin-
ian terrorists from Lebanon
descended on an army base in
northern Israel and killed a num-
ber of soldiers after the Israeli
sentry guarding the gate fled;
* the Syrian attack on an IDF
outpost in the Golan Heights at
the start of the 1973 Yom Kippur
War, an attack which saw a
number of Israeli soldiers run off
and others taken prisoner;
* IDF negligence that allowed
surprise attacks by Egyptian sol-
diers along the Suez Canal in the
1969-70 War of Attrition;
* IDF soldiers fleeing in the
face of armed resistance by Jor-
danian villagers during Israel's
cross-border retaliatory raids in
the 1950s;
