Citing heightened tensions in the Middle East, House Republican leaders Thursday agreed to a request from President Clinton and abruptly canceled a vote on an Armenian genocide resolution bitterly opposed by Turkey, scuttling the measure for the year. The GOP had pushed for a vote on the measure to aid Rep. James E. Rogan (R-Glendale), who is facing a tough reelection campaign in a district with a large Armenian American population.

Ali, a 31-year-old employee at a Tehran print shop, doesn't buy as much chicken or red meat as before and has stopped going to the barber. He gave up smoking Marlboros for cheaper Iranian-made Bahmans, and asked his wife to quit her health club. "I've downsized my life," said Ali, who asked that he not be further identified out of fear for his safety.

After a last-minute brawl with his own allies, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was sworn in Tuesday night, along with his Cabinet of largely right-wing and religious party leaders whom many Israelis and Arabs fear will halt Middle East peacemaking.
