(See story on page 9) By Uzi Benziman JERUSALEM (JTA) - Almost every week a -strike takes place in one of the vital public services. Every month the inflation increases in the order of 3-4 percent. In April it was 4.5 percent. Every day several brutal crimes are described in the newspapers. One day recently public attention was focused on the story of a young woman from Herzliya Begin Stresses Danger Of Palestinian State At Meeting With W. German Foreign Minister By Gil Sedan JERUSALEM (JTA) -, Premier Menachem Begin seized upon the terrorist bombing in' the Mahane Yehuda market as further proof of the dangers a Palestinian state would po_e for Israel. He made that point repeatedly in his hour-and- 40-miriute talk with West German. Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Gen_cher last week, during which the visiting German diplomat of- Rabbi Harvey S.

"A Palestinian state means killing and bloodshed," Begin told his guest. He expressed concern over recent statements by West German leaders,' notably Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, which; he said, indicated a '.'regretfuTlshift rin policy toward Israel and support for a "Palestinian organisation in the framework of a Former AIPAC Chairman To Be Liaison To Jewish Community By Joseph Polakoff WASHINGTON (JTA) - The White House will announce officially soon President Carter's selection of Edward Sanders., a Los Angeles lawyer and former chairman of the American- Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as his principal advisor on 'matters affecting the American Jewish community. The move was seen as part of the Administration's efforts to repair its relations.-with American Jewry which have become severely strained over U.S. Middle East policy. Sanders' title has not yet been decided, White House sources said. Since the resignation of Presidential assistant Mark Siegel, the President's principal liaison with the Jewish community over White House activities affecting Israel, most, of the liaison duties have been carried out by Presidential Counsel Robert Lipshutz and Domestic Affairs Chief Advisor Stuart Eizenstat. Since Siegel's departure, in a clash over the Administration's Mideast policies, the President has named Anne Wex-* ler and Gerald Rafshoon as political and media advisors respectively. Sanders resigned as chairman of AIPAC wheri he joined Carter's election campaign organization ; ih 1976 as deputy national campaign' director. He has-been serving this year as an unpaid consultant to the President. In his new post he will have offices at the White House and at the State Department. Sanders is among the 27 prominent Americans, mostly Jewish leaders, who,left for Israel June 29 as part of Vice President Walter Mondale's party at the invitation of the Vice President. A graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles and the Uni- „ versity of Southern Califor^ ' nia Law School, Sanders is a i partner in a law firm dealing with corporate matters. Apart from heading AIPAC he has served as chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund-Israel Emergency Fund campaign, as vice- president of the Council of Jewish Federations (CJF) and as an executive committee member'of the United Jewish Appeal. state." He also claimed that Egypt was demanding pre-, conditions for The resumption of peace negotiations with Israel. Questions Missile Sales, To Syria ' .'' Genscher said there was no change in German Mideast policy. His govern- mente stand, he said, was in line wifE^ffieTIfune' 29, 1977 declaration of the European Economic Community (EEC) which supported the right of self-determination for the Palestinians. Begin also raised the issue of the sale to Syria of missiles produced by a Franco-German consortium. He said that Germany had a moral obligation to cancel the deal. Genscher promised to reexamine the issue but he, and other West German leaders, have stressed that -Bonn could do nothing to prevent its French - partners from consummating the sale. Begin complained about the statute of limitations on the prosecution of Nazi war criminals in West Germany which goes into effect in January, 1980. He said that even France has not introduced such a measure and questioned how Germany could do so. Genscher said the matter was under review and promised that German war criminals whose cases were opened before the law goes into effect will be tried "even if they are captured in 50 years." Prior to his meeting with Begin, Genscher met for two hours with Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan and earlier with Finance Minister Simcha Ehrlich and former Foreign Minister Yigal Alton of the opposition Labor. Alignment. Dayan told reporters later that his talk with Genscher went beyond Is- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) who for months was regularly raped and tortured by a gang of delinquents before she dared to inform the police. These gloomy and frightening accounts are not unique to Israel: such phenomena are widespread in this brutal world. As a matter of fact, Israel is a relatively pleasant place to live, compared with the violence and turmoil prevalent nowadays in so much of the Western world. Nevertheless, a year after the Likud government took office, Israelis are ^wondering whether the new administration has made any serious effort to cope with the domestic problems reflected so graphically and dramatically in examples cited. above. The answer is negative. Inflation Still No. I Problem The Likud government has failed to cope effectively with the economic problems. Economists write about the improvement "Jn"Hie'.oreign* currency balance and in foreign investments. But the ordinary citizen, in his daily life, feels only the galloping inflation which diminishes the value of the Israeli Pound. Due to the rapid rise of the cost of living, the situation in the labor market is one of permament restlessness. Almost every day ■ another group of workers decides to strike or "go slow" in order to get higher salaries. The negative consequences of the inflation are not only economic. Its social and the moral results are even .graver. As a result of the rising inflation, people reject established criteria by which to measure values and norms. A profound feeling of lack of stability prevails in many, aspects of the national experience. [Although both Likud and ihe Democratic Movement for Change (DMC) stressed in their election platforms the importance of bridging the social gaps, the government has not as yet made any mark in that field.either. Meanwhile, inflation womens the economic distress of the underprivileged classes. Deputy.

There is no improvement, either,.in the govern- mertrs - performantie as a decision-making and executive body. The Cabinet is a collection of individuals whose main purpose is to promote their- personal- careers and the particular interests of the ministries they head. There is little solidarity within the Cabinet. Ministers quarrel among themselves and ministries compete with each other.
