Reagan Characterizes Hussein Meeting as PrOductive

President Reagan and King
Hussein of Jordan emerged
from a 30-minute meeting
at the White House last
week which the President
characterized as "product-
ive." The Jordanian ruler,



thanking Reagan for his
warm reception, said "I be-
lieve we have an under-
standing of each other's
views better than at any
other time."
Reagan told reporters, "I

nificant progress toward
peace" in the Middle East.
"We have initiated a
dialogue from which we
would not consider turning
back. Much work remains to
be done," Reagan said.
He added, "The road
ahead is rough, but it's the
right road and I remain op-
timistic that through
negotiations for a just reso-
lution of the Palestinian
problem in this context, a
real and enduring peace is
within reach."
Reagan was asked
what he considered to be
his greatest accomplish-
ment this year. He replied
that it was the progress
made in Middle East
peace efforts.
Elaborating, he said
"When you stop to think
how many years this trou-
ble has been going on there,
I think we are making pro-
gress in the first step which
has to be the total removal
of (foreign) forces from
(King Hussein of Jordan
was on the payroll of the
CIA, it was revealed in the
Personality Parade in Sun-
day's Parade magazine sup-
plement to the Detroit Free
Press. In response to the
question of whether or not
Hussein was still on the CIA
payroll, the column stated:
("King Hussein was on
the CIA's private payroll
back in the mid-50's, when
Kermit Roosevelt was the
CIA troubleshooter for

Allen Dulles in the Mideast.
But Hussein's arms now are
being paid for in part by
King Fand of Saudi Arabia,
and it is highly doubtful
that the Jordanian monarch
is still on the U.S. payroll.")
In Tel Aviv, Labor Party
leader Shimon Peres has
urged King Hussein to
enter into direct talks with
Israel as soon as possible be-
cause "otherwise he stands
to lose much."
Addressing a joint meet-
ing of Israeli Jews and
Arabs at Shafr Am in
Galilee, Peres compared
Hussein's position now to
that of the late President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt be-
fore he made his historic
visit to Jerusalem in No-
vember 1977. But there is a
difference, Peres said.
"The difference is that
the Sinai could have gone
for another 50 years re-
maining empty. But in
Judea and Samaria (West
Bank),, new facts are
being created;; by Jewish
"Sadat could have waited
another five years and the
Sinai would not have
changed, but that is not the
case on the West Bank," he
said. If Hussein waits, "the
sands are running out and
he will lose everything."
Peres told his audience
that he spoke "as a Jew who
does not want to annex the
West Bank with its 900,000
Arab inhabitants against
their will."

Germany Lends Israel Funds
Despite Pressure from Arabs

BONN (JTA) — The West
German government has
signed an agreement to lend
Israel 140 million marks
($56 million) in fiscal year
1982-1983 for infrastruc-
ture projects agreed on by
the two governments.
Although the same loan
has been granted yearly to
Israel since diplomatic rela-
tions were established be-
tween Bonn and Jerusalem
in 1965, the agreement this
year was signed without
ceremony and without any
official announcement, a

clear deviation from the
practice of the past 15 years.
This reflected intense
pressure applied by the
pro-Arab lobby in Bonn and
by powerful elements
within Chancellor Helmut
Kohl's coalition govern-
ment to deny financial aid
to Israel.

Juergen Moelleman,
one of the two Deputy
Foreign Ministers, only
recently urged the gov-
ernment to, exert massive
pressure on Israel and
"the immediate with-
drawal by the Western
world of all financial and
military aid for Israel
until Israel becomes
more reasonable."
He specifically urged the
government to withhold the
yearly 140 million mark
The decision to grant the
loan was taken by Kohl per-
sonally. Since he took office,
Kohl, leader of the Chris-
tian Democratic Union, has
sought to demonstrate good
will toward Israel and im-
prove bilateral relations
which had deteriorated dur-
ing the tenure of Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt of the So-
cial Democratic Party. Kohl
has announced he will visit
Israel next year.
The loan carries a rela-
tively low rate of interest
and is repayable in 20 an-
nual installments. It comes
from government funds al-

Sharon Sees Year of Peace
for Israel Lebanon in 1983


Israeli Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon declared Sun-
day that 1983 "will be a year
of peace between Israel and
Sharon was interviewed
on the ABC-TV's This Week
with David Brinkley pro-
gram via satellite from
Jerusalem. He appeared
along with former Secretary
of State Kissinger and As-
hraf Ghorbal, the Egyptian
Ambassador to the United
The discussion centered
on negotiations between Is-
rael and Lebanon and the
issue of Israel's settlement
policies on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. Kissinger
said that "as a general pro-
position, the Israelis should
suspend the settlements
after the peace process is
started." But he saw no rea-
son for them to do so in ad-
vance of negotiations.
Sharon devoted most of
his remarks to the
negotiations with Leba-
non. According to Sha-
ron, "The negotiations
will be on normalization
of relations between
Lebanon and Israel,
about security ar-
rangements and about
withdrawal of Israeli
forces which will be part
of the withdrawal of all

external forces in Leba-
non. I believe that the
new year of 1983 will be a
year of peace between Is-
rael and Lebanon which
will move forward all the
peace processes in the
Middle East," he said.
Sharon, for his part de-
fended the Israeli govern-
ment's settlement policies.
They are, he said, "a na-
tional security concept. We
never regarded the settle-
ments as an obstacle to
peace. They are not in con-
tradiction with the plan
that was decided at Camp
David . . . and we will move
forward on the autonomy
Kissinger observed that
the settlement policy of
Premier Menahem Begin's –
government has been re-
jected by two American
Presidents. "I don't know of
any administration that
will accept it," he said. He
added that he saw "no rea-
son" why the Israelis
"should not continue what
they are doing" as long as
King Hussein has not
agreed to enter negotia-
tions. "But once negotia-
tions start, then we should
return to the Camp David
formula and ask Israel to
suspend settlements," he
