and 10 Jews, including a rabbi's
daughter and her three children killed

Arab uprising in the occupied lands.
"There's no question it will help
Likud," said Daniel Elazar, a political
analyst of the Jerusalem Center for
Public Affairs. "For most voters, this
will only reconfirm their beliefs, but
for those voters sitting on the fence
something like this could push them
off to the right."

. BEIRUT, Lebanon Pro-Iranian
Shiite Moslem kidnappers Monday
released a videotape of American
journalist Terry Anderson, who read
a message accusing the U.S. govern-
m'ent of preventing his release.
Copies of the tape were delivered
to; two Western news agencies in
Beirut four days after Anderson, 41,
spent a fourth birthday in captivity.
They were accompanied by a state

In Los Angeles, President Reagan
denied his administration impeded
the release of the hostages.
"I don't think that was Terry
speaking," Reagan said of the video-
tape. "I think he had a script that
was given to him."
Republicans mock Dukakis identity crisis
From Associated Press reports
The Republican ticket of George
Bush and Dan Quayle snickered in
unison Monday at Michael Dukakis'
late campaign declaration of liberal
ism in the race for the White House.
Dukakis was running as heir to a
great Democratic tradition of "caring
government" as he struggled to gain
"Miracle of miracles," taunted
Bush, who has waged a campaign
long effort to depict Dukakis as a
liberal outside the mainstream.
Quayle said he was glad the Massa
chusetts governor had resolved his
political "identity crisis."
Dukakis invoked the names of
Roosevelt, Truman and John F.
Kennedy as he campaigned in Cali
fornia, saying those Democrats stood
for "caring government and caring
political leadership. That's the kind
of president I want to be." -
'But at his first stop of the day,
Dukakis did not repeat his "I am a
liberal" statement that he made

Zeev Eitan, a political analyst at
Tel Aviv University's Jaffee Center
for Strategic Studies, said, "In this
election, that could be the difference
between a clear victory by one party
or a tie."
Polls taken before the attack and
published Monday in the newspaper
Maariv either gave Likud the edge
or indicated a dead heat similar to
the one that forced Likud and the
center-left Labor Party into a
"national unity" coalition in 1984.
Four different polls indicated
Labor, led by Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres, and its left-wing
partners would win 47-55 of the
Knesset's 120 seats, with Likud and
its allies getting 56-65.
Some seats are expected to be
taken by three Arab-oriented parties

The president added, "We have
been doing everything we can for the
release of the hostages, and the very
simple answer is for those people to
let them go."
Reagan's chief spokesman, Marlin
Fitzwater, said the kidnappers were
trying to influence the U.S. election.
'This is a cynical attempt to use
the hostages to influence public
opinion and the only real answer is
for them to release the hostages
immediately," Fitzwater said. "It's
not clear what they are trying to
achieve, but it's obviously meant to
influence the (U.S.) election."
Anderson began his message,
which lasted two minutes and 35
seconds, by identifying himself and
saying the date was Oct. 30.

campaign in modern history" in a
five-minute network commercial to
be aired Tuesday night. In a bid to

City sets homicide record
WASHINGTON - The
nation's capital set a grisly stand
ard Monday when police recorded
the 288th homicide of 1988, a city
record for the most homicides in
a single year.
The 288 deaths exceeded the
previous mark of 287 homicides
set in 1969. Authorities blamed the
upsurge in violence on drugs.
The latest victim was identified
only as a Hispanic male who died
at about 6 a.m. at Washington
Hospital Center, according to
Shannon Cockett, a spokeswo
man for the Metropolitan Police -Department.
It was not known how the man
got to the hospital. Homicide -detectives
believed he may have
been stabbed at about 8 . m.
Police Chief Maurice Turner
has blamed the high number of
slayings on violent turf battles
between drug dealers. Sixty per
cent of the year's homicides have
been drug-related, Turner said,
compared with 33 percent as
recently as 1986.
