And if the Jewish com-
munity fails to recognize
those positives, it risks its
credibility with an ad-
ministration that may well
have another four years at
the helm of U.S. foreign
policy.

tions. "It was exactly that
way with Jimmy Carter and
Cyrus Vance. Politically,
that is very harmful. We
really have no interest in
leading the president to
believe that he has to write
off the Jewish community."
The positives — including
the surprisingly hardy Mid-
dle East peace negotiations
and the administration's
balanced, low-key role in the
talks, the ongoing strategic
relationship and the relative
stability of Israel's foreign
aid — may outweigh the
emotional negatives ge-
nerated by the loan guar-
antee debate, he said.

But Jewish leaders warn it
is important to distinguish
between sharp conflict over
specific issues and a
wholesale deterioration in
the diplomatic relationship.
In fact, Jewish leaders rep-
resenting a variety of
perspectives worry that ex-
aggerated perceptions of
sagging relations — percep-
tions they may have en-
couraged by their own emo-
tional reactions to the loan
guarantee debate — could
become a kind of self-

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel
and Greece solidified their
recently improved relations
on the arrival here of Con-
stantine Mitsotakis, the first
prime minister of Greece to
pay an official visit to the
Jewish state.
He was welcomed at the
Rose Garden by Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Shamir, who
expressed appreciation for
the change of Greek policy
with respect to Israel and
the Middle East.
"Now we must work
together to ensure that these
relations will flourish," Mr.
Shamir said.
The Greek leader, respon-
ding in French, observed
that the two peoples have
always enjoyed cordial rela-
tions and expressed con-
fidence that his visit would
promote peace in the region.
Mr. Mitsotakis was
responsible for upgrading
Greece's relations with
Israel to full diplomatic sta-
tus. He extended de jure rec-
ognition to Jerusalem in
April 1990, a month after
taking office.
Prior to that, the at-
mosphere in Athens had
been chilly toward Israel,
especially during the So-
cialist regime of Prime Min-
ister Andreas Papandreou
from 1981 to 1989. Relations
were maintained only at the
consular level.
On the other hand, Greece

had close ties with the Arab
world.
Apart from the change of
government in Athens,
global events of recent years
have brought Israel and
Greece closer.
Both feel threatened by
the advance of Islamic fun-
damentalism as Turkey, a
traditional adversary of
Greece, and Iran, an avowed
enemy of Israel, vie for in-
fluence in the newly in-
dependent Moslem republics
of the former Soviet Union.
Greece had not always
perceived the danger of
Islamic fundamentalism.
Greek leaders credit the
Israeli ambassador in
Athens, David Sasson, with
awakening them.
Greece, a member of the
European Community, is
now pursuing a policy of co-
operation with Israel in
many spheres, including the
economic, military, interna-
tional policy, agriculture
and tourism.
Another diplomatic event
in Jerusalem was the visit of
the foreign minister of
Angola, Pedro de Castro dos
Santos van Dunam, to
finalize the establishment of
full diplomatic relations and
sign an economic agreement.
Israeli Foreign Minister
David Levy was in Luanda,
the Angolan capital, last
month to negotiate the
renewed diplomatic ties.
