LARRY DERFNER ISRAEL CORRESPONDENT

W

ith great dispatch and
no looking back, the Is-
raeli army pulled out of
the West Bank cities of
Tulkarm, Nablus and Kalkilya
in mid-December and turned
them over to Palestinian Au-
thority control. Bethlehem was
slated to be handed over at the
end of this week, and Ramallah
by the end of the month.
Their heads spinning, the
130,000 Jewish settlers of the
West Bank asked themselves:
what do we do now?
One of the most influential
among them, Uri Elitzur, editor
of the settler journal Nekuda
(Point), caused a powerful stir in
the ranks when he urged the set-
tler leadership to try to reach a
modus vivendi with Yassir
Arafat's PA:
'The reality has changed com-
pletely," Mr. Elitzur wrote in a
signed editorial inNekuda's De-
cember issue, published as the
army's pullout was in high gear.
"Right now the question is not
whether it is good or bad, but
how we live with it ... We will be
worse off the slower we absorb
it, and we will lose the upcoming
battles as long as we insist on
continuing to dream about past
wars.
"I suggest that we talk with
[the Palestinian Authority] di-
rectly, and not through the Is-
raeli army," he continued. "We
have a thousand things to
arrange with our new neighbors,
and I suggest we start talking
about them now ..." Settlers who
wanted to make sure their elec-
tricity and water still worked,

and who wanted to be able to
drive safely through Palestinian
cities, had no other address than
the PA, Mr. Elitzur said.
The settler leaderLhip reared
up against the proposal. The
Yesha (Judea, Samaria and
Gaza) Council said it would have
no part in talking to "a terrorist
organization that calls for the
transfer of Jews, and which even
contains elements who encour-
age murderous terror against Is-
raeli citizens."
Mr. Elitzur's idea "fails to rec-
ognize that the gist of the Oslo
Accords is that Jewish settle-
ments will turn into ghettos, and
portions of our homeland will be
handed over to foreigners," the
Council stated, vowing to "con-
tinue its struggle against the
Oslo Accords."
At the local level, many mod-
erate settler leaders' opinions
seemed to fall somewhere be-
tween Mr. Elitzur's and the
Yesha Council's. Yinon Ahiman,
head of the municipal council of
Efrat, a few miles from Bethle-
hem, said that while Efrat would
maintain connections with Arab
mukhtars, or village leaders,
there was no point — for now —
in talking to the PA. "I don't
think they have our interests at
heart," he said sarcastically.
But Mr. Ahiman did not rule
out the possibility that he and
his colleagues might sit down
with PA leaders later. "For the
future, I don't think we can com-
pletely close our eyes to what's
happened," he said. "If the PA
proves that it's serious about
putting down terror, and repu-
