Albert Einstein noted that if peace were to come, it would come because the peoples of the world want peace. Stanley Sheinbaum and Rita Hauser are examples of Einstein's prophecy. There are those who may argue that Sheinbaum may be another Chamberlain returning from Munich announcing peace in our time. I don't think Sheinbaum is that optimistic, but he was instrumental in making a breakthrough. The PLO has renounced terrorism; the PLO has accepted United Nations Resolutions 242 and 338 and affirmed Israel's right to exist.

Stanley Sheinbaum was finally feeling better. He had been in his sickbed in the Regency Hotel for a week. But the news had just flashed on television that President Reagan was ordering the State Department to open a formal dialogue with the Palestine Liberation Organization. Sounding breathless, Sheinbaum pronounced himself greatly relieved. The day before, with much different emotions, he had watched PLO chairman Yasser Arafat's televised speech at the special session of the U.N.

Love and money: Gustave and Rita Hauser got both with the help of Harvard Law School and on Friday gave $13 million back. The two met at the school in 1955, got married the day after final exams in the spring of '56 and went on to make their fortune. Harvard officials said the donation is the largest cash gift ever given to a law school. "The school had a unique role in bringing us together," Hauser said at a ceremony Friday on the steps of a new building to be called Hauser Hall.

PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat met today with five American Jewish leaders--including one born in a Nazi death camp--and with Sweden's foreign minister at the start of a visit strongly opposed by Israel. Foreign Minister Sten Sture Andersson greeted Arafat and 12 members of the Palestine Liberation Organization at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, then accompanied him in a helicopter to the Haga Palace guest house for the talks, which were arranged by the Swedish government.

Yasser Arafat today said the Palestine Liberation Organization accepts Israel's right to exist and condemns all forms of terrorism. But the PLO leader told a press conference that a two-page declaration he drafted with a group of American Jews "is nothing new" in that the Palestine National Council, the PLO's parliament-in-exile, had effectively recognized Israel last month. "The PNC accepted two states, a Palestinian state and a Jewish state, Israel. Is that clear enough?" Arafat said.

The Bush Administration issued visas Wednesday permitting three Palestine Liberation Organization officials to attend weekend meetings at Columbia University with Israeli doves, including members of the Knesset or Parliament. State Department spokesman Charles Redman said the Administration waived a 15-year-old law banning PLO members from U.S. visits because none of the three officials--Nabil Shath, Afif Safiyah and Noha Nicholas Tadros--have had "personal involvement in terrorist activity."

In a move that already has created enormous controversy in the U.S. Jewish community, five prominent American Jews met Tuesday with Palestine Liberation Organization chief Yasser Arafat in Stockholm. The seven-hour talks, arranged by the Swedish Foreign Ministry, were aimed at obtaining a clear-cut statement from Arafat accepting Israel's right to exist and renouncing terrorism.

In a letter made public Friday at a conference of Jewish peace activists, the chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Yasser Arafat, endorsed an active role for Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip in peace talks with Israel. The statement was the first direct indication from Arafat that he accepts the offer of such talks and that Arabs in the occupied lands would take the lead in them.

February 5, 1996 | PETER M. NARDI, Peter M. Nardi is a professor of sociology at Pitzer College and coauthor, with David Sanders and Judd Marmor, of "Growing Up Before Stonewall: Life Stories of Some Gay Men."
One of the most contested cultural debates since that of gays in the military is whether states should recognize same-sex marriages. The impetus is that Hawaii may become the first state to legalize same-sex unions. Several states are considering legislation that would limit the customary reciprocity of recognizing marriages that took place in other states. Last week, the California Assembly passed a bill to deny recognition of same-sex marriages; it now goes to the Senate.
