Washington (JTA) — American
Jewish leaders told President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt this
week that "no possible progress
toward peace" could be made in
the Middle East unless Israel
were involved in direct talks with
its Arab neighbors.
Mubarak was urged "to demon-
strate to his fellow Arab leaders
the advantage of peace with Israel
by giving genuine content to that
peace -- by returning his Ambas-
sador to Israel and by fullfilling
the commitment to trade, tourism
and cultural exchanges contained
in the treaty between Egypt and
Israel."
"Only if the Arab world recog-
nizes that peace with Israel can
bring political and economic divi-
dends will the circle of peace grow
wider," said Kenneth Bialkin,
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
Bialkin led a group of some 20
leaders of American Jewish
organizations in an hour-long
meeting with the Egyptian leader
at the Madison Hotel in Washing-
ton Monday during Mubarak's
three-day visit to the United
States. The Egyptian president
was here for talks with President
Reagan and other senior Ad-
ministration officials.
Bialkin, addressing reporters
following the meeting, said the
Egyptian leader repeated his
commitment to peace with Israel
and voiced confidence that pro-
gress would be made in three
areas so that he could return his
Ambassador to Israel and pro-
mote trade and tourism with Is-
rael.
Mubarak, according to Bialkin,
expressed satisfaction at Israel's
decision to withdraw from Leba-
non and understanding that the
Palestinian issue posed great
difficulties for any Israeli gov-
ernment. But Bialkin reported
that Mubarak appeared troubled
by the lingering dispute over
Taba. Mubarak said that Egyp-
tian public opinion was not yet
ready for the return of its Ambas-
sador to Israel, withdrawn follow-
ing the massacre of Palestinians
at the Sabra and Shatilla refugee
camps in September, 1982. In
turn, the Jewish leaders urged
Mubarak to "exercise genuine
leadership" by helping to mold
public opinion in his country to
understand the advantages of
normal relations with Israel.
Mubarak insisted that the ab-
sence of the Egyptian envoy from
Israel did not mean an absence of
contact and dialogue with the
Jewish state, Bialkin reported.
"Mubarak expressed confidence
that his envoy to Israel would be
returned and that trade, tourism
and cultural exchanges would fol-
low," said Bialkin, adding, "He
kept telling us to 'be patient,' and
he repeated that Egypt 'respects
its commitments to Israel 100
percent,' and never thinks of
going back on the peace treaty."
Mubarak also told the delega-
tion that he recognized there
could be no solution to the Arab-
Israel conflict unless both sides
sat down with each other and
talked. "Mubarak justified his
proposals for a Jordanian-

Palestinian-American meeting as
a way of making a 'psychological'
breaking toward peace. We told
him this idea was a non-starter
and would serve to delay the peace
process, which could only advance
when Israel met directly with
Jordan and a non-PLO delegation
of Palestinian Arabs."
The delegation of Jewish lead-
ers was especially disappointed,
according to Bialkin, by two
Mubarak statements. "One was
his defense of (PLO chief) Yassir
Arafat as a 'moderate,' a descrip-
tion we told him we could not ac-
cept," Bialkin said.
"The other was his rather off-
hand response to a question we
raised on what Egyptian children
read in their textbooks and
learned at school about Israel and
the Jewish people. Mubarak dis-
missed the question as one that
would take care of itself once
normal relations with Israel were
restored.
"Our response was that a better
understanding of Israel and the
people who live there was essen-
tial to such a peace," Bialkin said.
Meanwhile, in Brussels Mon-
day, Israel's Deputy Premier and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
said that Israel is still waiting for
a serious peace initiative to
emerge from the Arab camp.
Commenting on Mubarak's re-
cent proposals, the leader of Is-
rael's Likud bloc was highly skep-
tical.
"For the time being, we don't
see any real peace initiative on
President Mubarak's part, but if
something happens that would
bring about a serious peace, then
everyone would welcome it,"
Shamir said.
In a related development, Is-
raeli Premier Shimon Peres has
flatly denied that one of his top
aides met secretly with a repre-
sentative of Jordan's King Hus-
sein in Cairo last week.
Peres was referring to a report
in Yediot Achronot claiming that
Gen. (Res.) Avraham Tamir, Di-
rector General of the Prime
Minister's office, met in the Egyp-
tian capital with Adnan Abu
Oudeh, Minister of State at the
Royal Court in Amman, to discuss
possible Palestinian members of a
joint Jordanian-Palestinian
negotiating team.

Tax Proposals
Spark Strike

Tel Aviv (JTA) — All commer-
cial enterprises in Haifa except
banks were closed Tuesday fol-
lowing a one-day strike called by
the local chamber of commerce to
protest municipality plans to
raise taxes 500-1,000 percent.
A chamber of commerce
spokesman said the new tax rates
for business establishments
would be double or triple the taxes
paid by the proprietors of similar
businesses in Tel Aviv.
As a result, Haifa, Israel's
largest seaport, was shut down.
Shops and factories closed their
doors and movie houses cancelled
shows. The banks remained open
by order of the Bank of the Israel,
the country's central bank which
regulates them.
