Tsemach, was that Israelis based
their appraisal of the government
largely on domestic performance.
Yet when it came time to vote,
the public still considered Israeli-
Arab issues the dominant factor.
The government's willingness
to trade the Golan Heights for a
peace treaty with Syria was
found to be an albatross around
its neck. The administration re-
ceived a strongly negative rating
on its dealings with Syria; what's
more, respondents said this was
the single most important issue
in determining their vote.
The polls also found that the
three prospective new centrist
parties — The Third Way (main-
ly Laborites opposed to giving up
the Golan), an immigrant party
led by Natan Sharansky, and Mr.
Levy's party — would take many
votes away from the right wing.
An anticipated new Israeli Arab
party, led by Ahmed Tibi, an ad-
viser to Yasser Arafat, could be-
come the largest Arab party in
the Knesset.
Histadrut leader Haim Ramon
said the polls augured well for
Mr. Rabin and the government
in the October 1996 elections,
which will, for the first time, be
held by dual ballot — one for
prime minister, one for a politi-
cal party.
"Whoever wins the vote for
prime minister will form the gov-
ernment," Mr. Ramon noted. "I
believe Yitzhak Rabin is going to
defeat Bibi Netanyahu, and then
the Orthodox parties are going
to see no option but to join
[the parties of the left] in the gov-
ernment."
Likud member and Tel Aviv
Mayor Roni Milo said the polls
showed that the Israeli public
"wants a centrist, moderate gov-
ernment, not the extreme left or
the extreme right." Arguing that
the government was too left-
wing for Israeli tastes, he
warned his own party, "If the
Likud gets dragged along by
[right-wing] extremists, it will
lose the election."



Missing Soldier
In Lebanon?

Jerusalem (JTA) — Thirteen
years after the Lebanon war, the
father of a missing soldier has
said his son and two other miss-
ing servicemen could be alive,
held by Lebanese villagers work-
ing for Syria.
Mr. Baumel spoke recently at
a news conference in Jerusalem,
marking the anniversary of the
battle in which his son and two
other soldiers, Zvi Feldman and
Yehuda Katz, were believed to
have been captu - -ed.
"According to our information,
the boys are being held by the
Lebanese, in Lebanese villages,
but under the supervision of the
Syrians," Mr. Baumel said.
