Your fine publication continues to give broad coverage to U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz's "peace mission" and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's opposition.
Shultz is being touted everywhere as the man of peace and Shamir as the uncompromising obstruction to lions and lambs lying down together in the Middle East.
But will history prove Shultz another Neville Chamberlain (who tried to appease Hitler)? Shultz knows that the PLO came into existence in 1964, three years prior to any "occupied territories," with its sole purpose being to expunge Israel from the Middle East--and that its bottom line has not been modified.
Yasser Arafat's top adviser, Hani al-Hassan, recently stated: "The support granted by the Palestinians of Jaffa and Nazareth proves that the battle is over the whole of Palestine." Yet Shultz presses on with his shuttle diplomacy and "compromises."
