Linowitz*: Rea an Should Push 'More Vigorously' for M.E. Peace


Sol Linowitz, who was
President Carter's special
envoy for Middle East

negotiations, on Sunday
faulted the Reagan Ad-
ministration for not moving
"more vigorously” in its

Middle East peace efforts.
This has allowed the
Camp David process to de-
cline while President
Reagan's own peace initia-
tive is "expiring on the
shelf," he said in response to
questions on the NBC-TV
"Meet the Press" program.
Linowitz, who has long
urged the Administration to
appoint a high official to
deal with the autonomy
talks as he did in the final
year of the Carter Adminis-
tration, said he was con-
cerned when Philip Habib
was made special envoy for
both the Lebanese negotia-
tions and the overall peace
process last year because he
felt one would be "subordi-
nate" to the other.

Someone other than
the Secretary of State has
to deal with the Middle
East peace process be-
cause the Secretary is
pressed by other issues,
Linowitz stressed. How-
ever; he said he expected
Secretary of State George
Shultz to return from his
first mission to the Mid-

raeli troops from Leba-
But on the CBS-TV "Face
the Nation" program,
Lawrence Eagleburger,
Undersecretary of State for
Political Affairs, did not
seem as optiniistic. He said
Shultz went to the Middle
East last week because it
was judged that "now was
the time for him to go" since
if he did not involve himself
in the negotiations directly,
there would be a "deteriora-
tion" in the talks.

Eagleburger said he did
not know if Shultz would re-
turn with an agreement,
but "if he can't make it, we
will try again."
On the NBC program,
Linowitz also was critical of
King Hussein of Jordan and
Israeli Premier Menahem
Begin for not being more
forthcoming in the peace ef-
forts. "Hussein has been too
dependent on the will" of
Palestine Liberation
Organization chief Yasir
Arafat, Linowitz said
He said "a mistake was
made . . . in making the
President's plan hostage
to negotiations between
Hussein and Arafat." He
added that Hussein has
"an obligation, has an
interest to participate in
the negotiations on be-
half of the Palestinians."
Linowitz ruled out U.S.
talks with Arafat or the
PLO until the PLO recog-
nizes Israel's right to exist
and accepts UN Security
Council Resolution 242.
As for Begin, Linowitz
said he has "not been forth-
coming, not as willing to
take steps that I think
would not have endangered
Israel's security" but would
have moved the peace proc-
ess forward. While he did
not explain what those steps
were, when Linowitz was
asked about Israeli settle-
ments on the West Bank, he
replied, "I have long felt
that it is not in Israel's best
interests to continue with
the settlements."



Linowitz said that when
he was participating in the
autonomy discussions, he
told Israel the settlements
were an obstacle but he be-
lieves now that something
could be worked out if
negotiations begin.
At the same time,
Linowitz said he believes
that the future of the West
Bank may be resolved
and an autonomy agree-
ment can be reached and
there is the five years of
experience of living with
it, as envisioned by the
Camp David agreements.
Linowitz said the with-
holding of authorization for
the sale of 75 F-16 fighter-
bombers to Israel was a
"counterproductive" move.
"You don't get Israel ac-
quiescing and cooperating
by threatening what it re-
gards as necessary for its se-
curity," he said.

with Israel, tens of
thousands of people lined a
30-block stretch of Fifth
Avenue Sunday to view
some 75,000 marchers, 25
marching bands and several
dozen elaborately decorated
colorful floats participating
in the 19th annual Salute to
Israel Parade.
David Levy, Israel deputy
prime minister, delivered
his keynote address in He-
brew. A translation of his
remarks was provided to the
media and read aloud to the
many assembled near the
reviewing stand.
Levy, who is also Minister
of Housing, was among the
many Israeli officials, local
officials and Congressional
members who reviewed the
parade. The theme was
"Yisrael Yaffa," or "Beauti-
ful Israel," and as in the
past, the parade was spon-
sored by the American
Zionist Youth Foundation.
The parade was led

Calls for More

The Senate Foreign Rela-

what the Reagan Adminis-

The committee last
Thursday approved $910
million in economic aid,

ministration and the $850
