be a first step toward an
overall Middle East peace.
"The progress achieved so
far must not be lost," Habib
told reporters after a 30-
minute meeting with the
President. "E'veryone in-
volved must exercise the
greatest care and caution.
The end of armed attacks
which has been achieved
could be a first important
step on the road to greater
calm and security," he said.
Habib said he was at the
President's "disposal" and
expected to go back to .the
area but did not know when.
Asked directly if he would
be taking up again the issue
created by Syrian anti-
aircraft missiles in Leba-
non, Habib would say only
that the cease-fire has
"satisfied the immediate
requirement."
But Habib stressed,
"The situation, however,
remains fragile and sen-
sitive. That is normal and
in the nature of such
things," he added. He
maintained that the
cease-fire is in "the inter-
ests of all the parties in-
volved." He said it was
achieved with the help of
"responsible _ and
cooperative people.",

.

Asked if Israeli Premier
Menahem Begin had been
cooperative, Habib replied,
"all parties were responsi-
ble and cooperative."
Sen. Rudy Boschwitz
(R-Minn.), chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Subcommittee on the Near
East, said the ceasefire was
an extremely importaht de-
velopment "and I hope it
will hold. It is important
that we go beyond it, how-
ever, for the ceasefire
should not be allowed to be
used as a mere pause for the
buildup - of supplies and a
prelude to renewed vio-
lence."
He expressed hope "that
all parties will take this
opportunity to try to work
out a long-range solution to
the situation in Lebanon,
including deescalating the
potential for conflict and the
strengthening of the central
Lebanese government."
At the same time, an of-
ficial of the National
Council of Churches
(NCC) praised Habib's
role in negotiating the
ceasefire "between (the)
PLO and Israel." In a
cable to Reagan, J.
Richard Butler, head of
the NCC's office for the

Middle East, also urged
U.S. contact with the
PLO.
He stated that "Habib's
continued presence in the
area underscores the
United States' key role in
peacemaking in the,Middle
East. Habib's accomplish-
ment was even more mas-
terful since he was pre-
vented from negotiating di-
rectly with one of the par-
ties — the PLO. However, in
order to have continued suc-
cess in the mediating role, I
believe Habib and the U.S.
must have open and direct
contact with the PLO."
In his statement, Butler
also noted that the NCC has
been encourating U.S. gov-

of F-16 fighter planes to Is-
rael.
Following his meeting
with Begin, Squadron said
he was under the impres-
sion that Israel would not
make it a regular - policy of
bombing targets located
within dense divilian popu-
lation centers. However,
Begin made no promises re-
garding Israel's future pol-
icy in fighting the terrorist
organizations.
Speaking to reporters,
Squadron said Israel's
bombing of Beirut July
17 would not perma-
nently damage relations
between Israel and the
Reagan Administration
nor would it affect Is-
rael's relations with the
American Jewish com-
munity. However, he
added, this might have
long-term repercussions
on Israel's relations with
Congress.
He suggested that pro-
Israel forces in Washington
would have to work hard
with Congressmen and
Senators for many months
to come to explain the plight
of Israel's border settle-
ments in the north during
the past two weeks to give
the proper background for
the Israeli military actions
in Lebanon. At the same
time, he suggested, Israel
should stress its regret over
civilian losses in Beirut.

When a great merchant of
Liverpool was asked by
what means he had con-
trived to realize the large
fortune he posseSsed, his
reply was, By one article
alone, in which thou mayest
deal too, if thou pleasest —
it is civility."

Squadron, Begin Discuss
American-Israel Relations

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Howard Squadron, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations
met twice with Premier
Begin last weekend to
discuss relations between
Israel and the United States
and between Israel and
American Jewry. He also
met with Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir.
Squadron, who was ac-
companied at his meetings
by Yehuda Hellman, execu-
tive director of the
Presidents Conference, flew
to Israel July 23 at Begin's
invitation after the Confer-
ence met in New York
where it adopted a unanim-
ous statement which urged
President Reagan, to im-
mediately resume delivery

ernment contacts with the
PLO for the past six years,
since, as the NCC states in
its Middle East policy, "The
PLO functions as the only
organized voice for the
Palestinian people..."
