Shaykh Khalil Quqa, one of
the Gazan leaders of llamas
deported by Israel, says the
Koran holds it illegal to make
peace with Israel. He believes
Jews "are the epitome of
wickedness in the world, the
epitome of plotting in the
East and West, and the
epitome of the longstanding
historic conflict among na-
tions. . ." He makes no ar-
tificial distinctions between
Jews and Zionists: "We are
against the Jews only. We
have no enemies other than
the Jews" (Al-Anba, Nov. 8).
One would be hard-pressed
to find any positive
statements about the U.S. in
the Arab press. Even
American "friends" like Jor-
dan and Saudi Arabia
regularly criticize U.S. policy.
While trying to buy arms
from us, they are also fre-
quently negotiating with
other nations, including the
Soviet Union and China, for
additional weapons. Thus, the
choice is rarely between U.S.
arms and those of another
country, as administrations to
cast it, but usually whether
the U.S. will supplement the
Arabs' other purchases.
The recent sale of American
F-18 fighters did not satisfy
Kuwaiti needs since they
signed an agreement to buy
armored vehicles and a
sophisticated air defense
system from Egypt (KUNA,
August 7). In addition,
Kuwait began negotiations
with Soviet officials focusing
"on ways of fostering bilateral
cooperation in the military
field in addition to inspecting
various Soviet advanced
weapons" (KUNA, August
Arab leaders always
reassure us that American
weapons would not be
directed against Israel, but
the Kuwaiti defense minister
told the Arab press some-
thing different: "It is sad and
painful that the blood of two
neighboring Muslim coun-
tries [Iran and Iraq] with a
common desire — the fight for
the liberation of Jerusalem
from the filth of Zionism — is
shed" (Al-Siyasah, August 7).
The American press ignores
much of what goes on in the
Middle East. If one Pales-
tinian is killed in the oc-
cupied territories. however, it
makes page one. The media's
excuse for not covering the
Gulf war carnage was that it
had no access to the bat-
tlefield. There is no such ex-
cuse for failing to report on
the incessant fighting in
Lebanon where Palestinians
are killed every week, fre-
quently by their fellow
Radio Monte Carlo, May 22).

I'm on the phone with a
prospective client who
wants to sell his home...
and competition for his
favors is keen.

"Why Chamberla in!", he says,
are pretty much
the same." "I say,

"WRONG"... and
he listens.
