Hussein 'Message' Nothing New
JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel Radio reported Sun-
day that two Americans
brought Premier Menahem
Begin a message from King
Hussein of Jordan last week
expressing the monarch's
interest in entering the
Middle East peace process.
According to the radio re-
port, Hubert Humphrey
3rd, Minnesota's attorney
general and son of the late
Democratic Vice President
Hubert Humphrey, and
Marc Siegel, the Jewish af-
fairs adviser to former
President Jimmy Carter,
told Begin that Hussein
thought "the conditions for
peace have been created" as
a result of the fighting be-
. tween factions in the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
But Uri Porat, Begin's
spokesman, said the
Americans had based
their message on their
own impressions and had
not brought any formal
message from Hussein.
He added that the mes-
sage contained nothing
"It was the same blah,
blah, blah we are used to
hearing every couple of
weeks when any American
comes from Amman," Porat
said. He added that if Hus-
sein had wanted to send
Begin a message, he could
have done so through
higher diplomatic channels.
