M. E. Expert Urges
NEW YORK (..ITM—U.S. inter-
VMS in the Middle East "clearly
lie with Israel•" and the U.S. must
help prevent Soviet ground action
on the Arab's behalf because it
would - upset the entire balance in
the region. -
But Israel must in turn agree to
a peace settlement that would in•
elude withdrawal from the occu-
pied terriuris and the demilitari-
zation of Sinia and the Golan
Heights. These are the conclusions
of John Scott. special correspond-
ent and assistant to the publisher
of Time Magazine, in a 132-page
report titled "The Middle East et
War,•' released to the press.
Replying on personal observa-
and interviews throughout
the Mid East last year. Scott de-
clares that Israel has a right to
exist because "The fact is that the
''N and most of the - world's na-
v.ins, including the U.S. and the '
USSR had recognized the state of
Israel by 1949, and the issue should
have hene closed at that time."
In addition, "By failing to resigi -.
from the UN after Israel was ad- •
milted, the Arab governments do
facto recognized the existence of
Israel as a legitimate nation."
Scott criticizes the United Na-
tions for withdrawing its Mid
East forces at Egypt's request;
for settling for a ceasefire in-
stead of "imposing real peace."

Scott recommends that the Arabs
agree to ne,intiations with Israel.
While direct talks ;would be "poli-
tically awkward" for President
Gamal Abdel Nasssr, "in the
w.irld -of political reality men arc
,:tten forced to do awkward_ and
While the Arabs "have not ne-
cessarily lost the war" despite
having lost "three decisive bat•
tles " Scott notes, it is "(a) fact
that the Arabs have been talking
about destroying Israel for 20
years without ever coming close
to so doing." If Egypt did not
agree to talks and were subse-
quently defeated again by Israel,
the Russians might be forced to
" abandon their expensive sup-
port of the Arabs," leaving them
"disarmed and bankrupt."
Yet the correspondent does not
believe that the Kremlin will
- allow" the Arabs to start another
war and it is "equally unlikely"
that Israel will declare one.
He concludes, "Israel warts
peace with security, the Russians
want the continuation of a semi-
war, and the Arabs want victory.
In this simplistic equation, our in-
terests clearly lie with Israel."
