that despite the warm bath of
praise he enjoyed in Cairo,
Egypt has little to give hav-
ing given it all when it signed
its own peace treaty with
Israel nine years ago.
"I don't see a quick solution
to the Arab-Israel conflict,"
one senior political source in
Jerusalem told me this week.
"The Shultz initiative is
largely an exercise in public
relations. The simple fact is
that Israel does not have a
partner for negotiations.
"Jordan is too weak to enter
negotiations alone, Syria and
the Palestinians say no. So
who and what are we talking
about?
"There is a value in diplo-
matic maneuvering for its
own sake, and Israel should
certainly give the initiative
its qualified approval. But it
is clear that behind all the
public relations there is a
void."
The sense of incredulity
that accompanied the secre-
tary of state on his latest
whirlwind mission were dissi-
pated in the slipstream of his
departing jet, but it has been
replaced by yet more awesome
questions.
Will Shultz be able to carry
it off? Will the promise of
peace — albeit unfulfilled —
drown out the message of the
militants and defuse their
threat? Or will the disap-
pointment engendered by
heightened expectations
serve to accelerate the process
of radicalization?
According to Dr. Asher Sus-
ser, a Middle East expert at
l Aviv University, both Is-
rael and Jordan want to
maintain the appearance of
political momentum: "Nei-
ther is interested in a total
breakdown for fear of the
alternative — war.
"The Egyptians are also in-
terested in fostering the polit-
ical process because a war
would put them in a very
tough spot. Even the Soviet
Union is interested in the fic-
tion of a political process. Bet-
ter that than people coming
to the conclusion that all is
hopeless," he said.
"No one really likes the
Shultz initiative, but many
want to see the process con-
tinue — if only for the sake of
the process."
According to the senior po-
litical source in Jerusalem,
the Shultz initiative was
doomed to failure, but it has
had one concrete effect: it has
translated the conflict from
regional to global terms.
"In the regional arena,
Shultz has failed. What is im-

portant now is what happens
at the global level. I cannot
see any change from within
the area — such change can
only come through outside in-
tervention — from joint action
by the United States and the
Soviet Union.
"But is the United States
prepared to relinquish its ex-
clusivity and allow the Soviet
Union an equal role in the
diplomatic process? And if it
is, will it really want to put
pressure on Israel? I'm not
sure."

World Council
Raps Embassy

Geneva (JTA) — The World
Council of Churches has
criticized the International
Christian Embassy in Jeru-
salem, which is hosting its se-
cond Christian Zionist Con-
gress from April 10 to 14.
The , council's statement
was written by Gabriel
Habib, secretary general of
the Middle East Council of
Churches.
It expressed concern that
the presence at the congress
of 7,000 to 10,000 Western
Christians to support Israeli
policies would be detrimental
to the Christian presence in
the region.
The congress will be part of
Israel's 40th anniversary
celebrations.
The embassy was opened in
1980 in response to the
withdrawal of all foreign em-
bassies afer Israel formally
proclaimed Jerusalem as its
capital.
