itiative, causing the entire
diplomatic effort to unravel.
It was to this threat that
Shultz, waving the diplomatic
flag, addressed himself this
week; an exercise in bolster-
ing the sagging morale of the
moderates and persuading
King Hussein that the game
was not yet over.
lb this extent, Shultz must
have been heartened by an
editorial which appeared this
week in the official Jordanian
newspaper, Al-Dastur. Corn-
menting on what it described
as a positive new emphasis in
United States policy towards
the Middle East, the news-
paper hailed Shultz for using
"a new language that has
been lacking from United
States policy for a long time."
The message he delivered to
the moderates was matched
by a visit to Syria, where he
reportedly attempted to con-
vince President Hafez Assad
not to hijack the Algiers sum-
mit and deal Jordan out of the
peace process.
According to sources in
Jerusalem, Shultz arrived in
Damascus clutching a bunch
of carrots for the Syrian
leader — a promise to work
toward the demilitarization of
the Golan Heights — with the
reasonable expectation that
Syria might regain this
strategically important ter-
ritory at the negotiating
table.
Shultz was also, apparently,
ready to offer President Assad
a more immediate reward for
keeping a relatively low pro-

file in Algiers — the offer of
United States support for
Syrian hegemony over
Lebanon and the final word
in the election of a successor
to Amin Gemyal, whose six-
year term as president of
Lebanon ends this summer.
But the latest Shultz mis-
sion could yet prove to be too
little, too late.
The prizes he has held out
to the Syrian leader may not

be enough to compensate him
for virtual leadership of the
Arab world. And the figleaf
he has offered the moderates
by way of tough talking in
Jerusalem may not be enough
to cover King Hussein's
embarrassment.
The Arab world, fluid and
highly volatile, may well be
on the verge of a dramatic,
unpredictable and dangerous
slide toward war.

FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1988

Algiers — The Palestine
Liberation Organization
issued a statement early this
week that some observers say
clearly states its readiness to
recognize Israel's right to ex-
ist, together with a Palesti-
nian state.
The statement, released
just before Arab leaders
began a summit to show their
support for Palestinian upris-
ings in the administered ter-
ritories, said, "We believe
that all peoples — the Jewish
and the Palestinians included
— have the right to run their
own affairs, expecting from
their neighbors not only non-
beligerence but the kind of
political and economic
cooperation without which no
state can be truly secure."
It further said that the PLO
does not seek "the undoing of
Israel, but the salvation of the
Palestinian people and their
rights . . . our ultimate aim
being a free, dignified and

secure life not only for our
children but also for the
children of Israelis."
Pundits suggested that
even more important than the
language of the statement is
its timing. As Secretary of
State George Schultz begins
another push for his Middle
East peace plan, pundits said,
the PLO is trying to appear
more moderate — and thus
boost possibilities for its in-
clusion in any talks.
The PLO will be par-
ticipating in the Algiers sum-
mit, where it is said to be
seeking a rejection of the
Shultz peace initiative and
financial support.
Meanwhile, Hassan al-
Tawil, mayor of El Bireh in
the West Bank, was in critical
but stable condition after be-
ing stabbed early this week
as he left his office.
The 73-year-old Tawil, who
had been appointed by Israel,
ignored repeated demands
