Israeli speaks

about uprisings

Israeli journalist Gideon Remez
opened his speech to a small
gathering at Hillel last night by by
saying he was grateful to have
attended the international conference
of democracy held this week, as there
were "no attacks on Israel."
"There was no Arab delegation, as

Israel is the only democracy in the
area," he added.
Remez spoke at length about
current Israeli politics, highlighting
the high level of organization of
religious parties. He told a story
about religious parties using the
same tactics in the last election that
the late Mayor Richard Daley or


Chicago was famous for.
He said many orthodox Jews look
similar, and the policy of "Vote
early, vote often" was used. People
who voted twice used identity cards
of dead citizens, or cards flown in
from America by Jews who had
relocated to the United States.
Remez also discussed recent
statements made by the Palestinian
Liberation Organization in Algiers,
accepting United Nations resolutions
242 and 338, which implicitly
recognize Israel. He said it was a
"tactical error to dismiss [the
statements]. The statements were
insufficient, but shouldn't have been
dismissed as insignificant."
His main reason for labelling
Israel's action an error is the
existence of other more radical and
fundamental groups within the
occupied territories. He feared that if
the PLO is dismissed, Israel will
have an even more dangerous enemy.
Remez said there is such a high
degree of mistrust within Israel of

the PLO that there would need to be
a "period of confidence building"
before Israelis would grant the
Palestinians statehood or autonomy.
The period, he said, demands a
cessation of violence within the
territories and no terrorist acts
attributed to the PLO for a period of
"two months, two years...."
He said the PLO is "smart and
getting smarter. The worst thing we
could do is underestimate them.
They know that it is better to appear
non-violent over terrorists."
Remez said, "We could have
mowed down the whole mob," but
that the Israeli army does not behave
in that way and never will.
The talk also touched on the
handling of the year-old Palestinian
uprising by the Israeli military.
Remez said the army and the Israeli
people have tried to handle the
violence in as humane a way as
possible, but young soldiers must
often make a judgment of whether or
not their lives are endangered.

Gorbachev shortens visit
NEW YORK - Mikhail Gorbachev headed home yesterday from a
tragedy-shortened but triumphant visit, expressing hopes that it would
"open up good prospects for our two peoples" and the world.
The Soviet leader made the decision to cut his visit by a day in order to
oversee relief efforts for victims of an earthquake that reportedly killed
tens of thousands of people in the southern Soviet republic of Armenia.
He also canceled planned visits to Cuba and Great Britain.
But during his 45-hour stay, Gorbachev dazzled world leaders with a
dramatic arms reduction proposal. In his address, Gorbachev announced
that within three years he would reduce the Soviet military machine by
500,000 troops and10,000 tanks.
Gorbachev is the first Soviet chief to visit New York in 28 years and
captured the hearts on New Yorkers, who gathered in droves along
Manhattan streets to jubilantly cheer the Soviet leader.
Air Force plane crashes in
West Germany; six killed
REMSCHEID, West Germany - A U.S. Air Force warplane struck
an apartment building and exploded into flames yesterday in Remschield,
West Germany, killing six people, injuring dozens of others, and
destroying homes for more than six blocks.
"This looks like a war," said Johannes Rau, governor of North Rhine-
Westphalia state, after touring the scene in central West Germany.
The U.S. Air Force suspended all tactical training flights in Europe
until next week, Major General Marcus Anderson said.
Witnesses said the plane flew low over a school and hit the top floor
of an apartment building about 1:30 p.m. At least six multifamily homes
then caught fire and burned.
Rescuers said they feared the death toll could rise. "We haven't even
reached the aircraft, it's still wedged into a burning house," said city
spokesperson Reinhard Fleischmann.
Reagan meets press
WASHINGTON - The president held his news conference in the East
Room of the White House, decorated with Christmas trees. He began
with a quip, telling reporters gathered to grill him, "Got to stop meeting
like this."
In an opening statement, he expressed condolences to the Soviet Union
over the devastation caused by an earthquake in Armenia.
Reagan recited the history of superpower summitry in the last four
years, including the signing of the historic arms control treaty a year ago
and his trip to Moscow last spring.
He said that in the superpower negotiating agenda, there had been a
"serious movement and even some breakthroughs."
He hailed Gorbachev's offer to reduce Soviet troop strength by half a
million troops, but said there was "still room for negotiations" on the
subject because the Soviets would retain an advantage in troops in
Winds feed flames in Cal.
High winds feed Cal. fires
LOS ANGELES - The dreaded Santa Ana winds raked the Los
Angeles area Thursday with gusts up to 80 mph, fanning fires that
destroyed 25 homes and damaging Rose Bowl Parade floats.
About two dozen homes were damaged by the blazes, but no serious
injuries were reported, authorities said. Gusts toppled six trucks on
highways to the east and cut power to more than 300,000 people.
"We lost everything - the house, the cars," said Dan Hanlon, of La
Verne, who fled with his wife. "We were lucky to get out. We had to
drive through flames."
Jr. Knievel to attempt jump
ANAHEIM, Calif - Daredevil Evel Knievel's son, Robbie, says he
plans to try to accomplish the feat that put his father in a coma - jump
a motorcycle 160 feet over the fountains at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
"This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and would sit and
watch the film of my father's jump," Robbie Knievel said at a news
conference announcing his jump April 14.
Evel Knievel fell off his motor cycle as it hit the ramp when he
attempted the jump more than 20 years ago, and was in a coma for most
of the next month.

His son's try will be produced by Showtime Event Television and
distributed to cable operators on a pay-for-view basis.
"He'll get across it safely," Evel Knievel said. "If they (the
bookmakers) make a line on whether he makes it or not, bet on him."
