SERVING DETROIT'S METROPOLITAN JEWISH COMMUNITY

Mubarak Visit
Critical To Peace?

Washington (JTA) — Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak's visit to
Washington next week is increasingly
being seen as central to whether the
Reagan Administration views the cur-
rent Jordanian-Palestine Liberation
Organization talks as possibly leading
to direct negotiations with Israel or
another highly-publicized develop-
ment that fizzles out.
This was true even before the
Administration cautiously spoke last
week about a willingness to "re-
engage in the peace process" in the
wake of Israeli Premier Shimon Peres'
endorsement of Mubarak's proposals
for direct talks between Israel and a
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation.
But the United States still wants an
explicit agreement for the parties most
directly involved, Jordan and the PLO,
for direct negotiations with Israel as

well as acceptance "without equivoca-
tion" of United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338.
The importance of the Mubarak
visit was stressed by Middle East ex-
pert William Quandt, a senior fellow
at the Brookings Institution and
former director of the National Secu-
rity Council's Middle East Bureau in
the Carter Administration, who re-
cently returned from a visit to Egypt,
Jordan, Syria and Israel.
The Americans who are serious
about the Middle East see that (the
Mubarak visit) as the crucial visit in
this period," Quandt told foreign
correspondents last week. He added
that it was more important" than the
visit last month of King Fand of Saudi
Arabia, adding, however, that Fand's
visit did serve to increase public atten-

An Inside Look

Druze MK Zeidan Atashi gave
Detroiters this week a
close-up view of Israeli problems.

BY TEDD SCHNEIDER

Staff Writer

The three dozen or so people who
braved the weather Monday night and
ventured to Temple Emanu-El were
treated to a rare, insider's view of Is-
raeli problems and politics not avail-
able to most Detroiters. Doing the

treating was Knesset Member Zeidan
Atashi.
Atashi, a leading figure in Israel's
Druze community and one of the three
Shinui (Democratic Movement for
Change) Party members in the current
Knesset, touched on a number of is-
sues, including the settlements on the
West Bank, the unity government and
the Israel Defense Force (IDF) with-
drawal from Lebanon. But much of his
talk and most of his passion was re-
served for the Jewish state's economic
plight.
Atashi lashed out at Menachem
Begin's Likud regime for "blindly
leading Israel into its current situa-
tion" and for conditioning Israelis to
accept economic dictums that only
encourage collapse.
"For seven-and-a-half years, until
last summer's election, the govern-
ment had been bribing the people," the
MK said, referring to what he feels

PURIM SPOOF

New 1-696 expressway to wind through Old City.

On The Road Again

In an effort to appease the Orthodox community, the Michigan
Department of Transportation has decided to reroute the controversial
"missing link" to the 1-696 expressway through Jerualem.
The Middle-Eastern section of the freeway, already under construc-
tion, is targeted for completion along with the rest of the project, shortly
before or after the coming of the Mashiach.
Building a modern, super-highway across the Atlantic Ocean
shouldn't pose any serious problems, according to a spokesman for the
trasnportation department. "We plan a series of park-like decks," the
spokesman said, adding that each deck would be stocked with trees,
benches and plenty of tropical gefilte fish.
