optimism with their lives.
The lesson is not lost on the
cowed survivors.
There is a double lesson
here that should not be lost
on those concerned. Arabs
with moderate views, and
there are such, have come to
realize that they are in effect
committing suicide if they
even suggest compromise or
negotiations with the Israelis.
Hence the clear disclaimer by
the king of Morocco.
On the other hand, hard-
headed Israelis, and there are
such, have come to realize
that even if peace of a sort is
made with Yasser Arafat, at
great cost to us, it immediate-
ly will be upset by terrorist
acts-of Abu Moussa's Fatah
rebels. And if they are
perhaps brought around,
George Habash and his
Popular Front will declare
war on both Israel and the
Arab peacemakers. Waiting
in line to reject any and all
compromise with Israel are
Ahmed Jibril and his cohorts,
Naif Hwatme and his so-
called Democratic Front, Abu
Nidal and his wing of Fatah,
the Syrian-sponsored Al-
Sa'ikah — and still the list is
long of radical, dissident and
maverick Arab groups that
are pledged to the eradication
of Israel as a state, but bicker
and brawl and butcher among
themselves with an intensity
that dooms to failure any
peace program subscribed to
by one of the competing
groups.
More than two years ago,
Tom Friedman reported the
situation in blunt terms when
he wrote in the New York
Times that Arafat no longer
controlled the P.L.O. "It is a
hodgepodge of pro-Syrian,
pro-Iraqi, pro-Libyan and pro-
Arafat factions," any one of
which can veto decisions
reached by the others.
For some years there have
been gentle and naive souls in
Israel who have urged that we
should meet Arafat halfway.
If he pledges not to attack
women and children, to give
up the use of terror, to accept
U.N. resolution No. 242, and
to grant Israel's right to ex-
ist, we should in return be
prepared to make territorial
concessions for the sake of
that elusive "peace." If such
an understanding had indeed
been reached, it would have
served as a death warrant for
Arafat, and he would have
been finished off by his Arab
foes without mercy. Indeed,
by their failure to lure Israel
into that kind of trap with
Arafat, the Israeli minimal-
ists have saved Arafat's life.
Any kind of deal that he
might have made, which
called for less than total ex-
tinction of Israel, would have
marked him for assassination.
Is there then no alter-
native? The prospects do look
gloomy, but that should not

for one moment permit Israel
to let its defenses down, and
expose itself to the genocidal
intentions of the frenetic and
fanatical Arab murder gangs.
Fortunately for Israel, the
leadership of both major par-
ties here is aware of the
danger, and they continue to
stand fast in the face of im-
portuning by the small but
articulate minority of the
domestic utopians, idealists
and starry-eyed visionaries
who have set as their goal
peace at any price."
Weakness in any part of the
world serves to encourage the
extremists. Only when the
full community of nations
takes a determined stand in
its refusal to yield to ter-
rorism, will an atmosphere be
created in which a genuine
and a mutually respected
peace can be hammered out.
In the meantime we can on-
ly watch and wait, with some
concern as to who -will be the
next Arab peacemaker to fall
victim to Arab terror — or
with some hope that there
will be courageous, moderate
Arabs willing to risk the
threat of Arab terror for the
sake of peace in the Middle
East.
