The Palestinian uprising cost Israel $666 million in 1988 and nearly wiped out its economic growth, and it may exact a similar toll this year, a Cabinet minister was quoted as saying. Gad Yaacobi blamed the losses on higher military spending, reduced production, lost tourism and a fall-off in foreign investment. Yaacobi, of the left-leaning Labor Party, was economics minister until November, when he became communications minister.

That success, however, has been countered by Iran's escalating involvement with extremist groups--primarily Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah--determined to destroy the U.S.-brokered Mideast peace process.
