The State Department
said that the Reagan
Administration would
put "proper pressure" on
Israel to support
President
Reagan's

peace initiative but has
ruled out sanctions. De-
partment spokesman
John Hughes defined
"proper pressure" as
"persuasion" and "draw-
ing attention to the great
benefits that will ensue
for Israel making peace
with its neighbors."
(He said the U.S. hopes
Israel will eventually agree
when it realizes that "the
end result is so rewarding"
for its security.)
The Knesset debate be-
tween Likud and Labor over
the Lebanon war centered
on its expansion and the
level of force applied rather
than on the original war
aims. Labor agreed with the
necessity to rid south Leba-
non of Palestinian terrorists

menacing Israel's borders.
But it questioned the need
to send Israeli troops to Be-
irut, 60 miles north of the
border, and the intense
land, air and sea bombard-
ment of west Beirut.
Begin implied that the
PLO and the Syrians bore
sole responsibility for for
the expansion of the war. He
said the PLO had two
chances to end the
bloodshed: the first on June
11, five days after the fight-
ing started, when Israel de-
clared a unilateral cease-
fire after clearing the ter-
rorists from a 40-mile zone
in south Lebanon; and
again on June 26 when Is-
rael offered the PLO and the
Syrians safe conduct out of
Beirut via the Damascus

highway.
According to Begin, the
war brought peace and a
new life to the inhabitants
of Galilee. He challenged
Labor to go to the towns and
villages of Galilee and try to
tell the people there that the
campaign was unjustified.
"Its own local supporters
would be the first to dis-
agree," Begin said.
