  • Description

    In Jerusalem, a major partner in Israel's ruling coalition has split, with some members withdrawing support for the government. The Democratic Movement for Change, known as DASH, has been the second-largest political party in the coalition. Reuters reports the split will weaken Prime Minister Menachem Begin's government, although he can still command a majority in the Knesset.

    SYNOPSIS: Of the fifteen DASH members in the government, three have not yet decided what to do. Seven members will remain, led by party leader and deputy Prime Minister Professor Yigael Yadin, who describes how the split came about.

    The five members withdrawing their support for the government are led by Professor Amnon Rubinstein.

    Reuters reports that Professor Rubinstein's group is opposed to the government's firm policies on the occupation of Arab land.
