criticism she has been receiv-
ing. "The media has a pris-
tine ignorance of Israel,' he
said, and compared an inter-
national peace conference on
the Middle East to the
Munich conference before
World War II — "dividing a
smaller nation to benefit the
larger states."
George Shultz, in prevent-
ing Yassir Arafat from speak-
ing at the United Nations in
New York, "made the finest
decision in the history of our
foreign policy." Will chastized
the U.N. for having 41 na-
tions who regularly vote . to
expel Israel, "a member state.
"Someone said the United
Nations pumps $800 million
into the New York economy
every year. My response is,
Calcutta needs it more. Let
the U.N. stay in Geneva un-
til they repeal the 1975
resolution equating Zionism
is racism."
Will said the American peo-
ple will miss Ronald Reagan
as president because he was
not afraid to use U.S. military
power and "he had a visceral
identification with Israel."
During his 1980 campiagn for
the presidency, Reagan said
that the two Palestinian
states should decide the fate
of the West Bank and Gaza
and, according to Will,
Reagan has held to that view.

are Jordan and Israel.
Returning to the media,
Will said Israel is a victim of
the television age and the
short attention span of the
television audience. "It is
frightening" he said, "that 80
percent of the nation gets all
of its information from televi-
sion news," claiming that an
hour-long newscast could be
condensed into one-third of a
page of the New York Times.
Television's time span
shapes the news, he said.
Stonethrowers and simple
slogans have an advantage.
"Israel is on the more com-
plex side of things. Israel's
truths take longer to deploy."
Will said Israel makes
mistakes in her democracy,
but pointed to United States
mistakes as well. "We have
not had a real election cam-
paign in this country since
1980," he said. The invisible
crisis in America is the huge
national debt. "At least
Israel's crises are visible. The
United States is living
through a slow-motion
decline" by not repairing its
bridges and schools.
Israel, he said, is coping
with the problems of im-
migration that the Unites
States confronted a century
ago. A new problem for the
United States is its aging
population: today there are
12,000 Americans age 100 or
