he "Washington
Whispers" column in
U.S. News and World
Report confides that unnam-
ed "U.S. sources" believe
that an historic first meeting
between Israeli, Egyptian
and Palestinian leaders
"remains possible in the
next few weeks."
The column, a one-page
compendium of unat-
tributed, off-the-record tid-
bits from around the world,
stated that the meeting can
still come off despite "hard-
line opposition and continu-
ing Palestinian attempts to
derail the talks, such as the
dispatch to Sinai of a suicide

squad that was intercepted
and killed in December,
1989."
As for who sent that squad,
"well-placed security
sources" claim, according to
U.S. News, that there is
"hard evidence from within
the PLO itself" that the
team's mission had been ap-
proved by PLO chief Yassir
Arafat and directed by Abu
Ali Shain, a senior officer in
the PLO's Al Fatah faction.
But some Egyptian diplo-
mats argue that Arafat, who
visits Egypt twice week-
ly,"would never risk his
close relations with Egypt's
President Hosni Mubarak"
by sending infiltrators to
Israel through Sinai to
enhance his standing among
Palestinians.

What's Missing In Talk
About Reunification?

New York Times' colum-
nist A.M. Rosenthal is ap-
palled that all the pundits
now talking about uniting
the two German states have
been issuing "carefully
crafted statements" that
skirt the real words behind
reunification. Among these
words, he said, are "Jew,
Auschwitz, Rotterdam,
Polish untermenschen, Len-
ingrad, slave labor,
crematorium, Holocaust,
Nazi."
"Strange," wrote Rosen-
thal, "how even speaking
the words . . . is already con-
sidered inappropriate,
vulgar, emotional, not really
fit for decent political
discussion about Germany.
"Are they still not part of
every European, American,
and Soviet mind and
memory? Did not the two
earlier German reunifica-
tions lead to war? Is there
not a terror in millions of
human minds and hearts
that the nightmare visage of
the past may be the face of

the future?"
Rosenthal discarded the
"whiny argument that to
remember the truth of the
past is to blame the sins of
German fathers and mothers
on German sons and
daughters. To equate this
with Nazi racism is sicken-
ing."
Rosenthal called on
American writers who have
written about Nazi Germany
— John Hersey, Issac
Bashevis Singer, Cynthia
Ozick, Elie Wiesel, Saul
Bellow, William Styron — to
speak the silent words about
reunification. And also for
them to come from Tom
Wolfe, Gay Talese, Joseph
Heller, Arthur Miller, Philip
Roth and E.L. Doctorow.
"Are they going," he ask-
ed, "to be silent at one of the
most important junctures in
our history — the point
where a new and unknown
Germany is growing out of
some reasonable hope for the
future and a great deal of
reasonable fear of the past?"

Good Mencken,
Bad Mencken

Nope, we're not finished
hearing about H.L. Mencken
and his just-published diary,
which is crammed with
enough bilious comments
about Jews to convince
many people that the late
Baltimore Evening Sun
columnist was anti-Semitic,

and to arouse his defenders
into claiming that he was no
bigot, just a guy who
reflected his times.
A two-and-a-half column
letter in the New York
Times' book review section
takes the latter position.
