Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's government staggered toward collapse Wednesday as a minor, far-right party voted to withdraw in protest of Israel's participation in peace talks. Shamir's ruling majority, reduced to one vote, could disappear if, as expected, another fractional party decides to pull out. The prime minister's deteriorating position throws into question Israel's continued participation in the Middle East peace talks, which entered a third round this week in Washington.

Ziyad Salim Hussein Silmi, 19, an unemployed car painter from Gaza City, reportedly told police that he had been unable to find work for more than four months and in his frustration decided to kill Israelis.

Despite a U.S. demand for immediate withdrawal and an end to the killing of civilians, Israeli forces dug deeper into Palestinian territory Monday and waged fresh battles in Bethlehem as violence spilled across the West Bank and into Lebanon. Israel and Lebanese guerrillas fought artillery duels along Israel's northern border with Lebanon. In Jerusalem, a Palestinian opened fire in a crowded industrial center, wounding four Israelis before he was shot dead.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon won backing Sunday from nearly all his Cabinet ministers for having initiated his first talks with Palestinian officials since his election, and he said he will hold more such meetings. Jewish settlers and the far right blasted Sharon's session with a trio of senior Palestinian officials last week, saying it violated his pledge not to negotiate under fire. But most Cabinet ministers praised it as a breakthrough after more than 16 months of fighting.

President Bush demanded Tuesday that Israel withdraw its troops from Palestinian-run parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, delivering the stern message personally to Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres. Bush's intervention, following similar warnings by lower-ranking White House officials, underlined concerns that Washington's customary support for Israel could hurt U.S. efforts to retain Arab and other Muslim countries as allies in the war on terrorism.

Israel's army used a helicopter gunship to kill an Islamic militant in the Gaza Strip on Monday and fired tank shells into Bethlehem during a firefight with Palestinians there, as both sides warned of a dangerous escalation in their conflict. Israeli officials said the strikes they are making inside Palestinian-controlled territory, once a taboo, are meant to push Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat back to the negotiating table.

Israel used roadblocks and a heavy police presence Friday to frustrate Yasser Arafat's call for a mass prayer demonstration at Jerusalem's Al Aqsa Mosque. Palestinians had predicted that more than 100,000 people would respond to the call by the Palestinian Authority president, intended to underline claims to the eastern portion of Jerusalem and to protest recent Israeli actions, including a slowdown in the peace process.

With two recent actions, the Israeli government has given notice of its intentions for the post-Gulf War era. First came the arrest of Sari Nusseibeh, a leading voice of moderation among Palestinians on the West Bank. Nusseibeh was placed in administrative detention for allegedly providing Iraq with information about locations hit by Scud missiles.

An Israeli who has spent hours huddled in a sealed room under threat of Iraqi missiles might be compared to the liberal who, in the old joke, has just been mugged: He tends to turn mighty fast into a conservative. As author Zeev Chafets put it: "The first gas mask on the first child's head was a point of no return. It meant that as long as Israel remains a democracy, there will never be a Palestinian state."
