President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt faces dangerous
threats from the fundamen-

predecessor, Anwar al-Sadat,

for themselves in Egypt's
parlous economic future.
Egypt, the largest of the

leaders over the past two de-
The other so-called moder-
ate states implicitly acknowl-
edged the existence of Israel
when they put forward the
Fez Plan which provided for
recognition of Israel's right to
exist in peace within its bor-
ders after its cession of East
Jerusalem and the other ter-
ritories Israel occupied in the
Six-Day War in 1967. Even
Yasir Arafat and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
have offered "official" recog-
nition of. Israel in- exchange
for Israeli acceptance of a
Palestinian Arab state on the
West Bank.
But the self-inflicted Arab
delusion that Israel was a
non-state whose existence
could be denied was blown
away forever by King Has :
san, when he invited Israel's
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
to visit him in Ifrane and dis-
cuss the conditions for an
Arab-Israeli peace settle-
The meeting, for all its
lack of substantive accom-
plishment, was a milestone
on the rocky road to peace.
For the first time since Sadat
flew to Jerusalem and the
process was initiated that led
to the Camp David accords,
the head of an Arab state -
the president of the Arab
League - met openly and of-
ficially with the head of the
Jewish State.
What is clear today is that
the direction of Arab-Israeli
relations will have to be re-
solved by the Arabs and Is-
raelis themselves and cannot
be resolved by the imposition
by a third party - the
United States or combination
of nations - of a settlement


plan based on the concept of
land for peace.
There is a role for the
United States, the Western
powers and the. Soviet Union
to play - an important role
- in resolving the deadlock,
but it is one which they have
been reluctant to attempt or
unsuccessful in earlier ef-
forts. That role is simply to
bring pressure on the recal-
citrant Arab states to meet
Israel, without preconditions,
and directly negotiate the
settlement of their outstand-
ing issues.
The Arab states, whether
they realize it or not, have
lost what was once their
strongest card - the recogni-
tion of Israel. Decades ago,
the Israelis would have sac-
rificed much for that recogni-
tion. Today, the Jewish State
has survived the Arab
ostrich-like refusal for nearly
40 years and it can continue
to exist without it. Admit-
tedly, Israel, and the Arab
lands, too, would be infinitely
better off all around if there
were a genuine Arab-Israeli
peace and normal relations
"The existence of the State
of Israel is no longer a sub-
ject for discussion," said the
Frankfurter Rundschau, one
of West Germany's most inf-
luential newspapers, in a re-
view of the Peres-Hassan
meeting at Ifrane. "The offer
to recognize Israel (in the Fez
Plan) and not even directly,
has • become particularly
worthless as a bargaining
"It is particularly unrealis-
tic," the paper added,. "to ex-
pect Israel to relinquish East
Jerusalem and the occupied
territories in their entirety in
return for such a vague con-
The paper deplores the fact•
that the Arab leadership has
not been able to make a
"cool, calm and collected
analysis" of the situation and
that 'politicians in the Arab
world seem to incline toward
merciless exaggeration that
defies objective approach:" It
declares that "Arab solidarity
with the oppressed Palesti-
nian people is not worth the
paper such declarations are
printed on," and concludes
that the Arab leaders "seem
virtually incapable of pursu-
ing a truly realistic policy."
Shimon Peres returned
from Ifrane convinced that
considerable progress has
been made there.
Now it remains for the
Arabs and Israelis each to get
their act together. The Is-
raelis must decide how far
they are prepared to go to
meet Palestinian Arab aspi-
rations. The Arab states must
decide once and for all to ac-
cept realities .and come to
terms with Israel. The Pales-
tinians, like other people be-
fore them who have been
trapped by history, must rec-
ognize their attainable limits
and accept them.
