tions only in the afternoon of Jan. 2 wiien the electoral results were in. Shortly before leaving Geneva, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy met for over two hours with the deputy head of the Soviet Delegation, Ambassador Vladimir Vinogradov. According to Egyptian sources here, the Soviet diplomat advised the Egyptians to show "patience and realism" till after the Israeli election and not press for a decision on the disengagement issue till then. He reportedly told Fahmy tliat it would be useless for the Egyptians to press for a solution as nothing can be done before. At the same time he promised a clean-cut Soviet intervention sliould the issue not be solved by the middle of January. He did not specify whether the Soviet intervention would be direct or would work through Washington. Israeli officials who were in Geneva with Foreign Minister Abba Eban at tite time of ttie plenary conference, indicated at the time that Israel wWrpitttyably ask as a first step for tlie

Mrs. Meir's Labor Party will have to form a coalition probably with its present partners, the National Religious party and the Independent Liberal to maintain a working majority. The Labor Party has indicated wUlhigness to make some concessions to the Arabs at the Geneva peace talks. The Likud party, under the

leadership of Menacbem Begin, opposes concessions to the Arabs at the Geneva peace conference, and sees the election results as an expression of support by the public for Its stsnd. The NRP is also against returning some of the "occupied territories" as a number of Jewish holy places are located on the West Bank. The Labor alignment has governed Israel In one form or another since the creation of the state.

Jewish Firms Hondle Most 1 Japanese Goods Sold in U.S. NEW YORK (ZINS)-Japan's vj^ZT . .t, .i. government» ^timatum" to the government of Israel that it "give up all of th6 occupied Arab territories" on threat of rupturing diplomatic relations has made a painful Impression. On the other hand, it has long been recognized that the "diplomatic relations" between Israel and Japan have had little practical significance for the Israelis. It is an open secret that the Japanese, with the blessing of their

government, have studiously avoided trade with Israel. For many -American Jews who are leading importers and agents of top Japanese firms in North America, the question is whether the time is not ripe for a "Jewish reply" to tiiis discriminatory Japanese trading policy. According to reliable estimates, more than 50 per cent of all Japanese products sold in the United States aro handled by Jewishly-owned firms.

"No »urrendar af territories frith<^t peace;" or, "thare will never be peace unlelsw«! give up terrltorlea," for example, no longer mean the same, and it is not tlte same people who use them. At one time there were fairly clear lines af demarcatlaa seyaraUag the sa^aHed doves from the hawka. Today the Unb tlwwadvea arc net qaite sarc of their ornithological claaaificatlon. Of oae thing only they are certaia: •oae of 00 wanu l« be a sitting ptgeoa for the Arabs. The leading figures in the dove movement, prior to the war, were Lyova EUav, Pinhas Sapir, Abba Eban, and a long string of uptopians, Ideallat* and extreme leftists whose views differed from eacl aUMT qitly in degree. They maintained in principle that so long as Israel held onto the occupied ideas—Golan, Waat Banlc of the Jordan, Gasa, .Sinai, there could never be peace. We must be prepared to make some sort of compromise, and to advise the Arabs of this willingness in advance, in ordor to bring them to tlio conference table. Tbo reallsU anoag Ibooe doves susUiaed a nide shock oa Yo« Klppor Day. Tbry dlacovered ikat while they had been Ulking aboirt good win and compromise and gestures of frfaadihlp, the Arabs had be«a plaMdng the consplete military destruction of Israel. Furthermore, many came to the inescapable conclusion that bad there iadeed been a withdrawal from any part of the buffer xoaes held by Israel, the sneak attack would have started that nnch closer to Israel and would have had

that much greater chance of sncoeso. Btit ii Uw davM in Israei's public Ufe were diaconcerted, inuch <1M same can be said lor tJie hawks. The leading advocate* of the strong^ etand were Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, Israeli' Gaiiii, and a number of peraonalttlM. from military ^ad right wing circles. Thejr inslstod that the Arabs couki n«t be trusted. larael's security lay in ourcontinued occupatiod of the areas, and in iHtiuItig up our military power. They were agaiut any unilateral compromise. Indeed tiicy wero ifcotpical of the value of any "guarantees" which might be offered in exchange for a softening of Israel's attitude. Any show of weaiuwss would be a step toward stdcide, Uiey insisted. And they loo experienced a rude awakening on Yom KIppur Day. The much vaunted military machine was caught by .surprise. If tliere was a miracle In this war. It was the rapidity with which we regained our balance, and were able to shift i« the offense. Bnl the blind falUb In the InvinclMHty of our armed forces and Ita leadership was badly shaken. The hawks, too, are taking a new htok at their philooopMet. 1 might add, with considerable humility, that my peiyona! analysis of UM expectations was no better than that of others. In my annual Yom Kippur column, it may be recalled, I listed the ma]or problems which would face Israel in the year ahead. With what sublime confldence I placed "Defense" as Number Four and added: "For the first time in many years thia item drops a bit lower on the list. With good reason Israel feels Itself mora secure against its foes, despite occasional tororist dramatics." If we complete the Mrd metaphors, I eaa say that I was one of those who was icoaipelled to eat crow.

Sidelines Among my prized poneosiona Is a medal I won in a high schocri oratorical contest. I was IS, and the title of the oration was 'Tomorrow wW he better." As I recall the oration, it was filled with teenage idealism and | platitudes about ^^-^ ^^i the better world ^ "~ -

While I regret our failure to realize the irhole dream, there is tome satiafaction in knowing that my fenorathm did effect some changes. The end ot a year is often a time for reflection; a time for looking l>ack and looking ahead. I'm not 15 anymore, but it's impoosible for me to look at the aoguish of 1>73 without the dream and the belief that tomorrow will be better. The pages of the Jewish Press during the past year record a multiplicity ot trageIVre has been violenoe. Climaxed by the stupefying terrorism of Arab assaatins in Borne and Athens during the last days of the year, the obscenity of the Yom Kjppur War and the dreadful toll in young Israeli lives has marked 1073 as a year of tragic low hi the pages of history. The year has seen the murder of Jews in Iraq; the disclosure of Syrian torture of Israeli POWs; the continued harrassmoit of Soviet Jews.
