Officials in both Israel and Egypt raised cautionary flags Monday over the immediate prospect of a visit by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to Jerusalem, making clear that the two countries are sharply divided on the issue of a Palestinian role in eventual peace talks. Israeli officials had responded eagerly to comments by Mubarak in a Kuwaiti newspaper Saturday that he would make his first visit to Israel if peace prospects could be improved by such a trip.

When you publish a piece so blatantly anti-Israel by an Israeli journalist like Avnery, you are being misleading by not disclosing to your readers that this man is part of the minuscule, generally unsupported radical left element within democratic Israel. The patent nonsense of Avnery's advice to the Israeli people is personified in his concluding paragraph wherein he states that Arafat is "the only man whose signature can hold the Palestinian people to a peace agreement." Avnery is offering an illusion when he feeds us the nonsense that Arafat's signature will be worth anything more than the paper it's written on. Not only do we have daily experience that Arab agreements, even between Arabs, are broken as fast as they are made, but we have this very example in the ultimate agreement with the Camp David accords involving Egypt, Israel and the U.S. Those are the accords that Shamir insists must be upheld, and rightly so, if agreements are to mean anything.
