ing to speculation in the
press that a meeting between
Peres and Gorbachev might
take place.
Diplomats in New York
said, however, that Soviet-
Israeli contacts might take
place in a form of a meeting
between Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and the
Soviet Foreign Minister. Last
year, during the General As-
sembly, Shamir met with
then Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko.
In other news on the Mid-
dle East peace front, over
1,000 American Jewish stu-
dents, studying for a year at
Israeli colleges and high
schools, expressed their con-
cern for Israel's defense in
Washington last week by
signing a petition calling on
the United States to refrain
from selling arms to Jordan.
The petition was later deliv-
ered to Sen. Edward Ken-
nedy (D-Mass.) who sent it
on to the Secretary of State
George Shulti.
The petition drive was or-
ganized by a dozen student
activists, according to the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee (AIPAC).
The petition stated: "We, the
undersigned American stu-
dents, oppose the sale of
America's most sophisticated
weapons to Jordan or to any
other country that has not
recognized Israel's right to
exist and endorsed the Camp
David peace process."
The petition was circulated
over the entire country in
less than a week's time by
students at Tel Aviv and
Hebrew Universities who
had participated in Israel-
based Political leadership
Training Seminars sponsored
by AIPAC.
The activists said they
found willing signers not
only in the large university
programs at Haifa, Tel Aviv,
and Jerusalem, but also in
Yeshivot and the "High
School in Israel" program at
Hod HaSharon. Signers in-

cluded residents of all 50
states.
The petition organizers
designated AIPAC interns
Lauren Strauss of Brandeis
University and Julie
Bergman of the University of
Pennsylvania to present the
petition to Sen. Kennedy,
San, Kennedy and Sen, John
Heinz (R-Pa,) have intro-
(laced a resolution in the Se-
nate opposing arms sales to
Jordan as long as Jordan
"opposes the Camp David
peace promo,"

It is unusual for American
students to engage in politi-
cal action from Israel. "Nor-
mally, the students wait
until they return to the
States to get involved in
political activism. This year,
they wouldn't wait,"
Jonathan Kessler, head of
AIPAC'S Political Leader-
ship Development Program,
said.
The students involved in
the petition drive reported
that they were excited by
their experience. "In circulat-
ing this petition, we raised
consciousness," said one.
"There are now over 1,000
students returning to hun-
dreds of American campuses
committed to blocking this
transfer of weapons."

Israeli-Soviet and
Israeli-Jordanian
meetings are being
rumored for the end
of September in New
York

"This is what political ac-
tion is all about," said
AIPAC executive director
Thomas Dine, "making sure
your elected representatives
hear your voice."
Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv
last week, Israel and Egypt
initialed an agreement to
further tourist traffic be-
tween the two countries. It
was initialed at Ben-Gurion
Airport by Egyptian Tourist
Minister Wahi Shandi, as he
returned home to Cairo from
a three-day visit to Israel. Is-
raeli tourist Minister Av-
raham Sharir is to pay an of-
ficial return visit to Cairo
before the end of the year.
The agreement appoints
joint teams which are to
examine existing procedures
and formulate recom-
mendations to improve traf-
fic in both directions and
work out a detailed plan to

be signed when the two
ministers meet at an inter-
national trade fair in Berlin
in March*1986.
Shandi said before leaving
that there could be no re-
treat from peace, and the
only way was to go forward.
He said his visit to Israel
had been fruitful and of
benefit to both countries.
"We are partners in peace.
There is no way back. We
can only go forward. Time is
of the essence, and the peace
process must go forward,"
Shandi said in a abort pre-
pared statement,
