Iraqi Scud missiles had rained down on Israel and, like dozens of other calls Ruth Opatowsky has fielded in recent days, the person on the other end of the line was frantic. "He wanted to know exactly where the missiles fell and if his girlfriend would be safe and how he could get to her," said Opatowsky, a 26-year-old aide at the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles.

The two consuls general in Los Angeles, Farid Abboud of Lebanon and Ran Ronen of Israel, agreed that the region was at a critical period but differed sharply on the prospects for a comprehensive settlement.

In his letter (Dec. 10), Ran Ronen, the consul general of Israel in Los Angeles, made a case for his country's position, one of fear of its neighbors. My only comment is: The way to have good neighbors is to be one. If that goes for the rest of the Middle East, then it goes for Israel, too. CASEY KASEM, Los Angeles

In his pre-diplomatic years as the No. 2 man in the Israeli Air Force, the only flak Ran Ronen ran into was the kind that sometimes exploded near his F-16. Last month, however, Israel's consul general in Los Angeles encountered another type of flack--one that does lunch and takes meetings. The burly diplomat recently hired Los Angeles-based Boonshaft-Lewis & Savitch as media advisers to help expand the consulate's exposure and improve its image.

While there is quite a bit of talk about settlements these days, there also exists quite a bit of disinformation. What is the reality? Judea-Samaria (the West Bank) was always a part of the "land of Israel" where Jews lived for centuries, thus giving Israel a legitimate claim to this area. Even during the first half of this century, Jews were living there. Only for 19 years (1948-67) were Jews denied their right of access by an official discriminatory Jordanian policy. The day after Israel gained its independence in May, 1948, Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq attacked the new state of Israel.

The post-World War II generation of Americans has a difficult time relating to a foreign invasion or surprise attack. Fortunately. But would they feel differently if a street gang stood at the top of Griffith Park or on the Santa Monica Mountains and started shooting down at the city with heavy artillery? What if Los Angeles was surrounded by hostile neighbors committed to its destruction?

As Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner and his family moved slowly through the Bradley Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday toward an El Al departure for Israel, someone asked his 15-year-old daughter how she felt about the weeklong trip. "I'm scared--but I'm excited," Annie Reiner said. It seemed to be a common reaction as two groups from the Los Angeles Jewish community left for Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to express their wartime solidarity with the Jewish state.

Reaching out to local Israelis after decades of neglect, Jewish community officials Thursday announced a $180,000 grant intended to help bring the immigrants into the larger Jewish community of Los Angeles. The Israeli government once frowned on this sort of thing, hoping that emigres would feel like strangers in a strange land and decide to return to the Jewish state, said Consul General Ran Ronen.
