President Clinton plans to deliver an address to the Israeli people Sunday night urging them to support implementation of the Wye accord, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff said in a conference call with Jewish officials. Clinton’s message will conflict with the stance of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has suspended implementation, citing Palestinian violations of the pact. During his trip to Israel and the self-rule areas, Clinton plans to light a menorah with Israeli President Ezer Weizman and light a Christmas tree in Bethlehem.
