For at least 11 years, Israel has held a number of Lebanese it suspects of being members of Hezbollah, the militant, Iran-backed Islamic organization that sprang to prominence after Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982. Some of these men have apparently never been charged with specific crimes. Some who were convicted remain in custody even though they have completed their sentences. Until recently, many of the prisoners were not even allowed to have access to lawyers.

Vice President Dick Cheney affirmed America's "enduring and unshakable" commitment to Israel's security at the start of a visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories Saturday. Cheney's visit to the region comes as the United States tries to nudge Israeli and Palestinian negotiating teams, which are locked in a slow-moving, U.S.-sponsored peace process. Talks have been repeatedly derailed by outbreaks of violence between Israel and militants in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. U.S.

Regarding "How Much Israeli Give?" (editorial, June 26): This whole Mideast peace situation depends upon the same basic issue it always has--Israel's security. The old argument of "land for peace" has been tried and failed. Israel surrendered the whole Sinai Peninsula to her enemies, including its oil, settlements and billions of dollars of improvements. Yet Israel still isn't safe from extinction by fanatical neighbors. How can the surrendering of additional Israeli-controlled land result in more security?
OPINION

Re "A holy city still divided," "Change cast in concrete" and "Clashing values alter a city's face," three-part series, June 3-5 In the first installment of this series, The Times details the history and circumstances of Jerusalem since the 1967 Six-Day War, quoting a former Israeli paratrooper as saying that "he now believes Israel should yield on Jerusalem in the interests of peace." What he and The Times failed to state is that now there can and should be no negotiations concerning Jerusalem until the Islamists no longer desire to drive the Jews in Israel into the sea. The article ignores this aspect of the situation, as if Islamist leaders have not been continuously making such statements.

With Shimon Peres as foreign minister and Shulamit Aloni of the Meretz Party as education minister, the Rabin government will be strongly left-wing, in no way centrist. Indyk continues: "Those who profess a desire for peace in the Middle East have in this new Israeli government their last, best chance." Wrong again! Peace does not, and will not, depend on Yitzhak Rabin. It will come, if it does, only after the leading Arab countries change from the despotisms to real democracies.

The two columns by Norman Podhoretz and Jerome Segal (Op-Ed Page, Nov. 9) advocate opposite views on the preferred policy of the U.S. government and attitude of American Jews toward Israel. And both are wrong. Podhoretz thinks that Jews who live in America forfeit their right to express views on the Israeli-Arab conflict because they choose not to live in Israel. Yet, Podhoretz contradicts his own premise by suggesting what his position would be if he were an Israeli. To no surprise, as a self-styled "neo-conservative," he sides with the right-wing Likud Party headed by current Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.

In his article "A Mortal Danger to Israel's Existence" (Op-Ed Page, Jan. 31), David Bar-Illan contended that "Egypt forbids maps with the name "Israel" in its schools." These are some facts on that matter: --Egypt's Ministry of Education has been distributing an atlas for schools throughout Egypt in which not only is the name of Israel mentioned, but also its territory is mapped out. --The United Nations Children's Fund distributed its own maps to some Egyptian schools with the map of Israel shown covering Israel proper as well as Israeli-occupied Gaza and West Bank.

Historians and semanticists will long debate whether Yasser Arafat actually satisfied the U.S. conditions for meeting with the PLO. His supposedly clear words at the pivotal press conference Dec. 14 were barely more forthcoming than what George Shultz termed ambiguous the day before. It seems that the Administration heard Arafat as it wanted to hear him, not as he is. Now, unfortunately, only Israel sees Arafat as a deceitful terrorist. More important as negotiations begin is one absolute essential: Israel's security.

The Israeli government ignored U.S. wishes Monday and deported Mubarak Awad, the Palestinian-American advocate of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir ordered the deportation, saying Awad was in the country illegally and was a threat to Israel's security.

While diplomats and Middle East experts wonder how peace negotiations can ever resume after the colossal failure of the Oslo process, and while Palestinian sufferings continue, security experts everywhere are fascinated by the extraordinary Israeli success in minimizing their casualties.
