In a preview of U.S. expectations ahead of a new round of Mideast diplomacy, President Bush's top strategist on the conflict has told private gatherings of scholars and Jewish leaders that settlements walled off from Israel by the country's controversial barrier in the West Bank will have to be dismantled. The comments by Elliot Abrams, a senior director at the National Security Council, signaled to tens of thousands of settlers that they are on increasingly untenable ground.

Doyle McManus' article (Dec. 6) quotes Asst. Secretary of State Elliot Abrams: "But we now believe they (the Cubans) are assuming an increased command role in combat tactics." Yes, Abrams "believes," (he has no proof) and wants Congress to approve larger funds to help the contras topple the Nicaraguan government. President Reagan rejects peace efforts with Russia because of its military operations in Afghanistan. Russia does it openly and our government does it covertly in Nicaragua.

Thank you for your editorial (Jan. 15), "Contadora Can Work, if--." However, that "if" is a very big word, for as you state, "it won't happen until the dirty little war promoted by the Reagan Administration is brought to an end." You also make the point that there is a gross ignorance of history on the part of Elliot Abrams, assistant secretary of state for Latin America, and others in the Administration. Wars are bred through fear and there is great fear in Nicaragua that the United States helping the contras at the Honduran border with a massive military buildup will invade their country.

A clandestine radio station is expected to start broadcasting soon in support of the campaign to oust Gen. Manuel A. Noriega, giving the opposition a way to reach the public and to counter the government-controlled media, sources here and in Washington said Tuesday. The U.S. government, which is backing the struggle against Noriega through economic sanctions, is evidently helping to organize the broadcast service.

If you're having trouble coming up with the right numbers to win at Lotto, give a thought to the Sultan of Brunei. Last year Sultan Sir Muda Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzadin Waddaulah, absolute ruler of the miniature but oh-so-rich state on the north coast of Borneo, was approached by Secretary of State George P. Shultz. Be a good fellow, Shultz said in so many words, and donate $10 million to support the Nicaraguan contras . Fine, the sultan said in so many words, where do I send the check?

President Reagan has invited the leadership of Nicaragua's contra rebels to Los Angeles to give "his personal assurances" of commitment to their cause, the White House said today. Spokesman Marlin Fitzwater, confirming a disclosure Wednesday by contra official Alfredo Cesar of plans for such a meeting, said Reagan will meet with the entire six-member directorate of the Nicaraguan opposition next Thursday.
