three.
One of the immediate effects of
this change is that the new role of
the Chinese People's Republic will
influence Middle East develop-
ments in numerous, sometimes con-
tradictory ways. One must expect
some favorable and some unfavor-
able changes in the Middle East
conflict.
China opposes a political or
peaceful solution. Although Israel
recognized the People's Republic
as long ago as Jan. 7. 1950, Peking
has never tried to hide its deep
hostility toward the Jewish state
for well-known ideological and
practical considerations.

China has supported the Arab
positions in the Mid East conflict
and intensified its support of the
Arabs after the June 1967 war.
China actively supports the Pal-
estinian guerrilla movements,
trains and assists such organiza-
tions as the Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine and
the even more radical Demo-
cratic Popular Front. Some lead-
ers of these bodies have visited
Peking repeatedly.

True to its ideological premises,
and in order to support the Arab
cause, the People's Republic offi-
cially opposes any political solu-
tion and asks for a "military and
revolutionary solution" in the Mid
East.
China maintains diplomatic rela-
tions with 11 of the 14 members of
the Arab League. Only Saudi
Arabia, Lebanon and Jordan are
not on speaking terms with Peking.
Even such avowedly anti-Commu-
nist states as Kuwait have recog-
nized the Peking rulers.
Arab leaders, on the other hand,
do not fear the Chinese, who have
had little influence in the Mid East,
up to now. For one thing, China is
distant. For another, almost all
Arab Communist parties (which
are considered dangerous by the
Arab governments) are bitterly
anti-Chinese and ardently pro-
Soviet. This is especially evident in
Sudan, Egypt and Syria.

The People's Republic is now
bound to adopt a more responsi-
ble international position. Nixon's
projected Peking visit shows that
the Chinese leadership has
stopped looking at the world in
black and white if, indeed, they
ever did—and now regard it in a
much more graded way in order
to forego the possibility of a
united Soviet-American front.

The main supporter of the Arabs,
the Soviet Union, now finds itself
outflanked on the east by China
and may find it necessary to find a
nonviolent solution to the Mid

It has been Washington that
pressed Israel to make concessions
and made some herself. From now
on, one may expect Moscow to
chart a similar policy vis-a-vis the
Arabs. -
Finally, President Nixon's visit
to Peking will in all probability,
open an era of relaxation of inter-
national tension. For Israel, any
international de-escalation can
have only beneficial results. For
the Middle East as a whole this
means that the danger of war will
recede.
Mid Eastern tension was always
connected with international ten-
sions. Now there is a chance that
the Big Powers will be able to do
something beneficial for the war-
ring Israelis and Arabs.

the Israel foreign minister said,
"We may assume that the USSR
government will review its policy
