Tent cities of the homeless are springing up in Israel, populated not--as many observers had predicted--by newly arrived Soviet Jews but by Israelis driven from their homes by soaring rents raised in anticipation of the immigrant influx.

Police Monday evicted about 100 homeless Israelis from a tent camp set up to protest Israel's severe housing shortage. It was the first time that authorities had evicted people living in tent cities.

Isn't it wonderful that the American taxpayer can subsidize Americans moving to West Bank settlements so that Palestinians can be made homeless? Israel received $5.6 billion from the United States in fiscal year 1991 alone. Why does the U.S. taxpayer foot the bill for these people to play cowboy? Isn't it time for America to say enough?

Here is an old joke that is quite pertinent to the column on Lebanon.

Re "A holy city still divided," "Change cast in concrete" and "Clashing values alter a city's face," three-part series, June 3-5 In the first installment of this series, The Times details the history and circumstances of Jerusalem since the 1967 Six-Day War, quoting a former Israeli paratrooper as saying that "he now believes Israel should yield on Jerusalem in the interests of peace." What he and The Times failed to state is that now there can and should be no negotiations concerning Jerusalem until the Islamists no longer desire to drive the Jews in Israel into the sea. The article ignores this aspect of the situation, as if Islamist leaders have not been continuously making such statements.
