LEXUS OF LANSING
Strengthened by the canceled expropriation of east
Jerusalem land, Israeli Arabs flex their political
LARRY DERFNER ISRAEL CORRESPONDENT
he national consensus is
in: Both the government
and the opposition came
away big losers in the re-
cent cancellation of the expro-
priation of east Jerusalem land.
The winners were the two small,
Arab-dominated parties. The up-
shot is a new feeling of political
power among Israeli Arabs, with
the promise of more to come.
Until the planned land expro-
priation came to light, the De-
mocratic Movement for Freedom
and Equality (Hadash) and the
Arab Democratic Party (ADP)
supported the government, de-
spite their dissatisfaction with
its handling of the peace process
and Israeli Arab issues.
With five of the Knesset's 120
seats, these two Arab parties'
support gave the ruling coalition
the bare majority it needed to
govern. If Hadash and ADP
withdrew their support, the
right-wing opposition would
come to power. Thus, the Israeli
Arab parties went along with
the government, feeling they
had no choice.
But the Rabin administra-
tion's looming expropriation of
some 130 acres of east
Jerusalem land, most of it un-
der private Arab ownership,
pushed them beyond their lim-
it. Despite the pleas of Yassir
Arafat, Hadash and ADP cut the
rope and risked bringing down
the government over the issue.
Attacking from the right, the
opposition joined the Arab par-
ties, hoping to force the govern-
ment into taking over even more
East Jerusalem land in the fu-
When the dust cleared, the
government was still standing,
