There are few stories in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip to match the tragedy of Daniel Hamzani and his baby, Itai--a story that captures the growing sense of brutality and tension of the Arab uprising and Israel's response to it. Hamzani, a Jewish resident of the West Bank settlement of Ariel, recalls being relaxed as he drove the dark, winding two-lane hardtop from his father's house back to his home in the largest of such settlements.

If the polls are correct, Israel will elect Ariel Sharon as prime minister on Tuesday. For left-leaning Israelis, a Sharon victory will end the peace process. For his supporters, only a tough ex-general can deliver a lasting deal. Regardless of Sharon's true agenda, however, his credibility will be sorely tested by allegations of past involvement in crimes of war.

Fires blamed mostly on Arab arsonists destroyed more than 60 acres of forests in northern Israel, and clashes with Israeli troops in the occupied territories left one Arab dead and at least three injured. In the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, most businesses and schools were shut by a general strike. At the Gaza Strip refugee camp of Rafah, Talad Khalil Zakoot, 16, was killed during a clash with Israeli troops, an Arab reporter quoted the boy's relatives as saying.

The United States and Israel signed an agreement Monday to abolish all tariffs and most other trade barriers between the two nations by 1995, the first such U.S. agreement with any nation. The document, the product of 13 months of intense negotiations, was signed by U.S. Trade Representative William E. Brock and Ariel Sharon, Israel's minister of industry and commerce. Israel's parliament, the Knesset, approved the agreement Monday, and U.S. congressional approval seems assured.

Re "Sharon Swamps Barak in Israeli Vote for Premier," Feb. 7: Ariel Sharon, I think, is the Winston Churchill of Israel, while Ehud Barak, a good and decent man, is its Neville Chamberlain--another good and decent man. Barak, like Chamberlain, has attempted to appease the unappeasable. For years, Churchill got up in Parliament and warned of Hitler and the coming fascist storm. Sharon, like Churchill, is a steely eyed realist. He knows, and he has always known, that the continuing freedom of Israel, its very existence, comes at a high price.

Ariel Sharon, Israel's hawkish former defense minister, launched a campaign Friday to oust Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the 1996 elections, declaring his intention to form a broad right-wing coalition and lead "a rescue mission to save the Land of Israel and the Jewish people." But Sharon's announcement was more a challenge to Benjamin Netanyahu, chairman of the opposition Likud Party, who has been feuding with Sharon. Netanyahu angrily demanded Sharon's expulsion from the party.

JERUSALEM - For the second time in a week, Israel advanced plans for more than 1,000 new units of housing on land it seized in 1967, brushing aside U.S. pleas to curtail settlement construction while the Obama administration attempts to revive long-stalled peace talks. Israel's Housing Ministry said Sunday that it would publish tenders for 1,187 units of housing, including 793 units in Jewish developments in the Jerusalem area and 394 units in the West Bank. Palestinians say Israel's building announcements are sabotaging the renewed peace process, relaunched last month by Secretary of State John F. Kerry.

Dozens of Southern California singers and actors entrust Robert Feder with one of their most treasured assets--their vocal chords. Feder, a sort of otolaryngologist to the stars, the doctor of choice for many entertainers suffering from colds, coughs or hoarseness, last year founded the Performing Arts Medical Center Voice Institute in Los Angeles.

In a stinging rebuff to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Israel's parliament on Monday voted down a trio of Cabinet appointments whose approval had been seen as a crucial political test for the embattled Israeli leader. Rebels from within Sharon's Likud Party engineered the defeat, which came in a 60-54 vote by the Knesset, or parliament.
