A prominent Israeli history professor was stabbed to death in Jerusalem, and police said they are investigating it as a possible political or terrorist attack. The body of Hebrew University Prof. Menachem Stern was found by schoolchildren in a park near Israel's Parliament building, a police spokesman said. Stern, 64, was stabbed several times in the chest, the spokesman said. He said robbery was ruled out as a motive because a watch and money were found on Stern's body. Asked whether terrorists were believed responsible, the spokesman said, "This direction is also being checked."

Why are there Arabs in Israel's parliament? How many Israelis are in Saudi Arabia's government? How long would it take for Israel to wipe out the entire Palestinian population?

Re "Proposal to Teach Arabic Stirs Debate," June 12: The proposal to make Arabic studies mandatory for every high school student in Israel is extremely important. True peace cannot be imposed on two people if all they know about each other is a bloody history, mostly who killed whom, when and how many. Mutual study of each other's language and culture will promote mutual understanding and respect. Each time I speak Arabic with an Arab in Israel, I see an immediate difference in reaction; suspicion and distance change to friendliness and trust, and I change from occupier and foreigner to an equal partner, "one of us."

Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek made clear Thursday that he has little patience with American Jews pressing Israel to negotiate with the Palestine Liberation Organization for a quick solution to the violence in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. In fact, it is unrealistic to expect a swift resolution to the daily confrontation between the Israeli army and the Palestinians, according to the popular politician, who has attempted to foster a tolerant city where Jews and Arabs can co-exist.

The State Department on Friday rejected the plea of Rabbi Meir Kahane, firebrand founder of the radical Jewish Defense League, to keep his U.S. citizenship despite his service in the Knesset, Israel's Parliament. The decision sends the case back to U.S. District Court, which had put off action until Kahane, 54, a 17-year resident of Israel who has demanded that all Arabs be expelled from that country, had exhausted all administrative appeals.

The Times is to be highly commended for its recent comprehensive review of the historical context of the violent unrest in the West Bank and Gaza. Your two full pages of questions and answers have provided much-needed background to a complex situation. May I suggest, however, that your effort would be strengthened by the inclusion of the following information that was omitted from your analysis. Israeli Arabs are active participants in Israel's democracy. They vote in Israeli elections, enroll their children in Israeli schools and universities, and are recipients of the entire range of services and benefits provided by Israel's remarkable health and social welfare system.

The Knesset, Israel's Parliament, allowed anti-Arab legislator Rabbi Meir Kahane to return to the floor today after he declared loyalty to the laws of Israel. "In the end, having tried everything else, I finally took the oath," Kahane told a reporter. "I am back in the Knesset and able to drive them crazy again." The New York-born rabbi, who seeks to expel all Arabs under Israeli rule, was banned by Knesset Speaker Shlomo Hillel on June 8 for failing to take the oath of loyalty.
