An international arbitration panel on Thursday awarded most of a small patch of hotly disputed Sinai desert beachfront to Egypt, leaving Israel with slim hopes of retaining some of the territory, known as Taba. The arbitration panel, which met in Geneva, ruled that 15 boundary markers set by British colonial rulers constituted the true Israeli-Egyptian border, thus putting essentially all of the 700-yard-wide beach resort in Egyptian hands.

His voice clear and stern, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak went on national television Thursday to lash out at Israel's "inhumane" treatment of the Palestinians. But as he appeared to be building toward a dramatic announcement, jabbing his finger in the air, he instead declared Egypt's commitment to peace--with Israel.

Israel's new government responded positively Sunday to a tentative offer by Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to visit Israel for the first time and try to get long-paralyzed Middle East peace talks in motion.

If a television show broadcasts across a sometimes-hostile border but hardly anyone is watching, does it have any impact? That may be an odd twist on the point that befuddles children--whether a tree falling in the forest makes a sound when no one's around. But it's a question some Israelis are raising about Egypt's latest public relations effort. State-owned Nile Television International for the first time has begun broadcasting a Hebrew-language news show into Israel.

President Clinton and a visiting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, clearly stung by Syria's refusal to rejoin talks with Israel, insisted Tuesday that they will not give up on the Middle East peace process, but Clinton said the next move is up to Syria.

A young falcon apparently flew off course while carrying an Egyptian soldier's message in Arabic to his beloved: "We'll meet on July 15, when the moon rises." An Israeli farmer living four miles from the border with Egypt found the exhausted and starving bird in one of his fields a day after the planned rendezvous. The invitation was strapped to one of the bird's legs. The soldier signed his name and platoon--Platoon 41, which serves in the border area of Rafah.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Tuesday pushed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to agree to withdraw from more West Bank territory next week when Israeli and Palestinian leaders are to meet in London with Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
