Mubarak and Bush:influencing Israel?

Teens Renovate
East-Side Area


Staff Writer

uliette Palmer, a 15-
year-old high school
student from
Brooklyn, was thinking
about taking a guided tour


to Israel this summer.
But an advertisement in
The New York Times re-
questing volunteers for the
American Jewish Society for
Service (AJSS) caught her

oth Israel and the
United States appear
to be looking toward
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt to rescue the Middle
East peace process.
Speculation in Israel is rife
about a possible summit
meeting between Mubarak
and Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir.
President George Bush re-
portedly suggested such a
meeting in a message to
Mubarak, conveyed last
week when Bush met at the
White House with Egyptian
Foreign Minister Esmat
Abdel Meguid.
Bush's strategy was said to
be to get Mubarak to in-

fluence the Israelis to soften
their opposition to the U.S.
proposal for Israeli-
Palestinian negotiations on
the Israeli peace plan.
News of the message, first
reported by the Arabic-
language Radio Monte
Carlo, came from sources in
the Egyptian Foreign Min-
istry. That was seen as an
indication that Mubarak
was seriously considering a
meeting with Shamir.
In Washington, the State
Department said this week
that it was unaware of the
Radio Monte Camo report. A
White House official con-
firmed there had been "an ex-
change of views" on the sub-
ject, but no message conveyed
to Mubarak.
But in recent days,
Shamir, too, has given

credence to the idea of a
summit with Mubarak. He
told a group of German jour-
nalists this week that "not
only the United States, but
also Egypt could play an im-
portant role in the promo-
tion of the peace process."
The Israeli leader said it
was in Egypt's best interest
not to remain the only Arab
state that has made peace
with Israel.
Meeting last Monday with
a delegation from the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, the pro-
Israel lobbying group in
Washington, Shamir again
suggested that Mubarak
could act together with
Israel "to stabilize the area
and to advance peace."
He praised the Egyptian
