The officials said that Egypt's standing marked a turning point with the arrival in Kuwait this weekend of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to lead his country's delegation to a summit conference of Islamic leaders, which opens today.

The Palestine Liberation Organization, while rejecting Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's terms for elections in West Bank and the Gaza Strip, is trying to devise what one official said will be "a constructive response" aimed at winning favor with the Bush Administration.

If good things really do come to those who wait, then for Egypt the long period of waiting may soon be over. Officially shunned by most of the Arab world for making peace with Israel and forced by its economic predicament into an ever deeper and, to many Egyptians, humiliating dependence on the United States, Egypt has been sitting on the diplomatic periphery of the Middle East for the past eight years, biding its time and waiting for its luck to change.
