Israel bans Arab travel in West Bank

The Washington Post
BET EL, West Bank - Israel staged a growing
show of force yesterday in the West Bank, deploying
tanks and troops and imposing a strict ban on Arab
travel between cities and towns that substantially shut
down Palestinian civil life.
The broad reassertion of military control in the
occupied territory - dubbed Operation Field of
Thorns - came amid warnings by senior Israeli offi-
cials that the Jewish state is prepared to send its army
back into Palestinian-ruled city centers and disarm the
30,000 Palestinian police if there is any repetition of
last week's shooting at Israeli forces.
Palestinians replied that such a move would mean
the final collapse of a three-year effort at negotiated

United Nations and in the agenda of a White House
summit meeting scheduled for later this week, Israeli.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought to back
up his vow to prevent Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat
from reaping "any political achievements through vio-
lence" and ordered the reopening of a tunnel adjacent.

Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that
claimed 70 lives.
Yesterday, tour groups, including some Americans,
walked through the tunnel as a heavy police presence
stood guard at both ends. The reopening spurred
angry reaction from Palestinians, and riot police
chased bottle-throwing youths through the narrow
stone streets of Jenisalern's Old City.
Government officials also
hinted at plans for mass arrests
and demanded the trial and We ca

who cast stones or fired acce t i
weapons at Israeli troops.
Others, including Netanyahu Maj. Ge
spokesperson David Bar Illan,
said the recent violence would lead Israel to demand
new conditions for withdrawal of its troops from most
of the West Bank city of Hebron, which was to have
been carried out six months ago under Israeli-
Palestinian self-rule accords.
Israelii reinforcements yesterday included snipers,
tanks, armored vehicles and attack helicopters posi-
tioned in plain view outside the seven major cities of
the West Bank. Maj. Gen. Uzi Dayan, the chief of
Israel's Central Command, said he would not hesitate
to use them if violence erupted again.

logged thousands of hours with their Palestinian
counterparts and earned Netanyahu's suspicion as
supporters of the previous Labor Party government's
negotiating strategy.

eliminate the Jewish claim to the capi-

Students shared a hope for the possi-
bility of peace in the region.
"I felt very disappointed because I
think they were taking many steps for-
ward," said LSA junior John Ksar. "I'm
concerned, for both sides. There's a lot
of innocent people being killed."
Most agreed that compromise would
be the only solution.
"lt's'really a warning for both sides to
continue with dialogue and negotia-
tions' said Rackham student Daniel
Rosen. "There's only one path that's
going to bring any solution and that's
the path of peace."
Students said they expected violence
to erupt again and agreed that an end
was hard to envision.
"I always expected unrest. There's a
lot -of long-term grudges being held,"
said LSA junior Syed Akbar. "It would
take a lot of giving by both sides."

Gitelman said that peace in the
region "will not happen overnight."
"It's not by accident that people use
the term peace process,' he said.
Students also said non-military
American involvement was a good idea
but weren't sure whether it could pro-
duce results.
"I don't know what they can do. In
reality the U.S. can only push them so
far. It has to be up to them," Akbar said.
Gitelman said the United States is
"the only body with the economic and
political clout in the Mideast" to be able
to encourage change.
"They can act as an honest broker
and bring the two parties together to
moderate their positions and negotiate
with each other" Gitelman said.
Students said they were especially
concerned for the welfare of friends and
relatives living near the fighting, which
has taken more than 70 lives so far.
"It just scares me. I have a sister who
was just there," Cosicher said. "I hope

Filipino identity.
"How much of history have we ...
presented to the world in our own
voice?" he asked the audience.
"Today, Filipino pride has never risen
to a higher level," Gonzalez said. "We
take great pride in our being the fastest-
growing Asian American population in
the United States. What awaits is the
composition of a grand narrative."
Gonzalez's wife, Narita, said
Gonzalez has 'become more anxious to
finish his projects as he grows older.
"He's driven' to write and finish his
projects," said' Gonzalez's wife, Narita.
She said of his books, "They are more
popular in the Philippines. It's only now
that they are beginning to read Filipino

books in the United States.
Narita Gonzalez said life with a liter-
ary mogul can be interesting. "Being'a
writer's wife., you must be tolerant to
the writer's eccentricities," she said.
