There has been a breakdown in control of street and town organizers over the killing of collaborators suspected of informing on Palestinians.

Only a fierce downpour kept the war from coming to Sheik Mussalem Street on Saturday. For a while, as an Israeli army patrol snaked its way through the narrow, twisting streets of the casbah, the old quarter of Nablus, a confrontation seemed inevitable. Tension had been running high in Nablus since soldiers shot and killed two Palestinian youths in a battle with rock- and bottle-throwing protesters the day before.

Shultz, arriving Thursday at the start of a new Middle East peace shuttle, said he will present an American plan to Israeli and Arab leaders on a take-it-or-leave-it basis.

No Israeli officer can do the things that occupied most of Capt. Ahmed Saned's time during 20 years as a policeman in nearby Bethlehem. They might be as good at tracking down burglars or murderers as he was--though that's far from certain, given the Palestinian officer's much more intimate knowledge of the town and its people. But in his specialty, it would be no contest.
