Israel, PLO reach West Bank

TABA, Egypt (AP)-Afterall-night
talks, a shouting match and an angry
walkout by Yasser Arafat, Israel and
the PLO agreed yesterday to sign a pact
at the White House ending nearly three
decades of Israeli occupation of West
Bank cities.
The agreement, the second phase of
the '993 Israel-PLO peace treaty, was
hailed by Palestinian leaders as a major
step toward creating their own state.
Other Palestinians said it gave them too
little, and militant Jewish settlers vowed
to do anything necessary to scuttle it.
The 460-page pact allows for Pales-
tinian self-rule in 30 percent of the
West Bank -- containing most of its
Arab population - after a step-by-step
Israeli pullout. Israel has occupied the
lands since the 1967 Mideast War.
The plan also allows for Palestinian
elections.
The accord was initialed in Taba, an
Egyptian resort on the Red Sea, by the
chief negotiators, Ahmed Qureia of the
Palestine Liberation Organization and
Israel's Uri Savir, just before the Jew-
ish New Year holiday. The signing in
Washington is set for Thursday.
"We will work so that this new year
will be a real year ofpeace," said Arafat,
the PLO chairman. "This agreement
will open the door for a better future ...

to create a new Middle East of security
and peace."
The agreement followed nightlong
talks that capped more than 80 hours of
tense negotiations. Earlier yesterday, a
shouting match erupted between Arafat
and Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and the PLO leader stormed out.
Arafat was angry that Israel refused
to expand the borders of the self-rule
enclave in Jericho. There were also
reports he wanted a more specific time-
table for the release of about 5,000
Palestinians in Israeli jails.
But Arafat relented after Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin promised to
discuss the prisoner issue in Washing-
ton before Thursday's signing, Pales-
tinian sources said. Other officials said
talks got back on track after interven-
tion by U.S. Mideast coordinator Den-
nis Ross and Egyptian officials.
Peres called the accord "history in
the real meaning of the word."
"It is a tremendous attempt to bring
people that were born in the same cradle,
who were fighting on the same fronts,
to agree on a new future," he said.
President Clinton called the agree-
ment "a big step on the road to ajust and
lasting peace in the Middle East."

Arab leaders - Rabin, Arafat, King

Ten defendants await terror trial verdict
NEW YORK - Prosecutors in the biggest terrorism trial
in U.S. history accused Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman and nine
others of hatching a "monstrous" plot to kill thousands of
people in a series of bombings in New York.
But by the time the jury began deliberating Saturday, the
defense had put the tactics ofthe nation's top law enforcement
agency on trial, accusing the FBI of plotting to frame the
defendants to revive its reputation. _
"This case is about one of the biggest and most embarrass-
ing moments in the FBI's history," defense lawyer John
Jacobs told the jury in U.S. District Court.
Abdel-Rahman, ablind, Egyptian religious leader, is charged Abdel-Rahman
with leading 14 Muslims in a plot to bomb the United Nations,
the FBI's Manhattan offices, the Holland and Lincoln tunnels and the George
Washington Bridge - all in a single day.
Three defendants pleaded guilty, a fourth testified for the government and a fifth
will be tried later. The remaining 10 defendants, if convicted, face maximum
prison sentences ranging from life to 20 years. Deliberations continued yesterday
and are expected to last about two weeks.

Militias flock to Expo

The Washington Post
SEATTLE - After an onslaught of
earthquakes ravaged parts of the world
from California to Armenia in the late
1980s, Dan Chittock saw a marketing
niche. He organized a national trade
show on survivalism, figuring people
would be eager to prepare for natural
disasters.

But turnout was slim during the first
two years, so Chittock added a new
dimension. He enlisted far-right activ-
ists to speak at the event about how the
federal government was hellbent on
destroying individual liberties to create
a "New World Order."
The message was that survivalisttac-
tics should be used not only to brace for
devastating acts of God but to with-
stand evil and unpredictable acts of
man.
"I did what talk radio does: I cre-
ated a forum for controversial and
alternative ideas," Chittock said. "It
sells."
Six years later, the three-day con-
sumer exhibition and conference known
as the Preparedness Expo - which
opened here Friday - has evolved into
one of the largest gatherings of militia
members, so-called Christian patriots,
tax protesters, white supremacists,
survivalists and those striving for self-
sufficiency and interested in holistic.
health practices.
People filed through the gantlet of
booths displaying manuals on sniper
training and products such as land mines,
booby traps and gun silencers.

Forbes promotes flat
tax inGOP bid
WASHINGTON - Although mil-
lionaire Steve Forbes' odds of winning
the GOP nomination are rather long, his
presidential bid guarantees national
exposure of an idea increasingly popu-
lar in the Republican ranks: a flat in-
come tax.
Backers of the idea want it to be a
central plank of the 1996 Republican
platform, and promote it as potentially
the defining issue of the presidential
and congressional campaigns. In their
view, Americans will rush to embrace a
simpler system, without all the forms
and confusing rules.
But, just as Forbes promises to bring
the GOP's flat tax fever into the presi-
dential race, some Republicans are be-
ginning to sound alarms, worrying that
simpler might not necessarily translate
into fairer-handing President Clinton
a political opening.
Given the complexity, and enormous
distrust, of the current income tax sys-
tem, the flat tax has obvious appeal:
Everyone would pay one rate, and ev-
eryone from Forbes toaminimum-wage

fast-food worker could file on a post-
card.
The leading proposal, and the one
backed by Forbes, is that of House
Majority Leader Dick Armey, who
would replace the current system with a
17-percent flat tax.
This plan has impressive support
among many conservative groups.
Software engineer
cdarged in Intel theft
SAN FRANCISCO -A former Intel
Corp. software engineer was charged
with stealing millions of dollars of se-
crets from the computer company and
giving them to arch-rival Advanced
Micro Devices Inc.
William Gaede, 42, was arrested
Saturday by the FBI at his home in
Mesa, Ariz. He was being held at
the Maricopa County Jail in Phoe-
nix, said sheriff's spokesman Tim
Campbell.
Gaede, an Argentine national who
worked for Intel in Chandler, Ariz., in
1993-94, was charged with mail fraud
and interstate transportation of stolen
property.
