personality and military
power.
Assad, said Maoz, also has
the ideological advantage of
being the last of the true
believers in the eventual, in-
evitable military defeat of
Israel.
"While so many other con-
frontation states in the strug-
gle against Israel have
adopted moderation," said
Maoz, "Assad still waves the
banner of anti-Israel fervor —
the true litmus test of
Arabism."
Finally, the Syrian leader
has managed to persuade the
gulf states that he is the
guarantor of their security;
that, because of his ties with
Iran, he alone can intercede
with Teheran and protect
them from Persian rage.

"I don't think that is true,"
said Maoz, "but what matters
is that they seem to believe
it."
Assad travelled to Anunan
under a cloud. Indeed, his de-
fiance over the Gulf War had
created such resentment that
oil-rich gulf states were
threatening to cut off all aid.
Instead, the "Lion of
Damascus" returned home
clutching an array of glitter-
ing prizes.
His $2 billion embrace of
the Iraqi leader was a vital in-
gredient in the summit's suc-
cess not only because it
signaled an important recon-
ciliation, but also because it
was a symbolic act.
The assembled kings,
sheikhs, emirs and presidents
had convened in Amman with
memories of the Iranian-
inspired massacre in Mecca
still fresh in their minds.
They were concerned about
the Gulf War and anxious to
avoid a display of intra-Arab
bickering at a time when
unity has never been more
elusive — and more impor-
tant.
They needed the Assad-
Hussein embrace. And they
paid for it. As result, they
achieved their goal of striking
a note of unity, however
illusory.
The summit resolutions
were largely exercises in
public relations: Syria is not
about to switch sides in the
Gulf War, the PLO will not
play a central role in any
future Arab-Israeli peace pro-
cess, and Egypt has not been
formally invited back into the
Arab mainstream. The
resolutions will have little
bearing on the critical events
in Mideast. But the over-
riding need was to establish
— and demonstrate — at least
a facade of unity.
The supreme irony was that
the task of rescuing the sum-
mit should have been left to

President Assad, a man who
inspires such awe among his
peers—and the single major
stumbling block to real Arab
unity. CI

Shin Bet Agents
Suspended

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The head
of the Shin Bet has suspended
three of the security service's
investigators for lying to a
government panel about the
death of a young Arab suspect
during the suspect's inter-
rogation last summer, Yediot
Achronot reported last week.
According to the report, the
Shin Bet chief — whose iden-
tity is never revealed public-
ly — acted immediately after
learning of the cases. He
reported the matter to Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, At-
torney General Yosef Harish
and former Supreme Court
President Moshe Landau,
who headed a government-
appointed commission that
recently completed an in-
vestigation into the conduct
of the Shin Bet.
In a report submitted to
Shamir, the Landau Commis-
sion found that Shin Bet
operatives systematically
resorted -to physical coercion
to obtain confessions during
the past 16 years and commit-
ted perjury before courts and
military tribunals in order to
conceal their methods and en-
sure convictions.

Kreisky Admits
Waldheim Error

Vienna (JTA) — Former
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky of

Austria last week admitted
he erred when he proposed
Kurt Waldheim for the office
of United Nations secretary
general in the early 1970s.
The World Jewish Congress
reports that Kreisky told a
packed lecture audience at a
Vienna concert hall that he
had failed to gather detailed
information about Wald-
heim's Nazi past.
Kreisky, a leader of the
Austrian Socialist Party and
a nonpracticing Jew, served
as chancellor from 1970-83.
Waldheim was elected presi-
dent of Austria in July 1986,
having served as U.N.
secretary general from
1972-82.
"I proposed and supported
the candidacy of an official of
the Foreign Ministry (Wald-
heim) for the job of U.N.
secretary general who quite
obviously had not told the
truth" about his past,
Kreisky reportedly said.
