Egyptian President
Rejects Invitation

Jerusalem (JTA) — Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak said
that he would not visit Israel any
time soon because such a visit
could thwart peace talks between
Israel and Syria.
"If I thought my visit to Israel
could help the peace process, I
would come tomorrow morning,"
Mr. Mubarak said, addressing Is-
raeli reporters who were accom-
panying Israeli President Ezer
Weizman on a trip to the Egypt-
ian capital.

tions with Syria, saying Mr. As-
sad has "problems with his pub-
lic opinion."
He warned Israel to expect fur-
ther problems with fundamen-
talist terrorism among the
"Do not expect (Palestine Lib-
eration Organization Chairman
Yassir) Arafat to be able to re-
store security overnight," he said.
He argued that years ago, Is-
rael had supported the creation

Explaining his decision, Mr.
Mubarak said such a visit could
cause Damascus to feel isolated,
which would cause Syrian Pres-
ident Hafez Assad to harden his
position in the long-stalled Is-
raeli-Syrian negotiations.
There were expectations that
Mr. Weizman's three-day visit to
Egypt this week would lead to a
reciprocal visit by Mr. Mubarak,
who, much to the dismay of Is-
raelis, has not made the trip since
he became president in 1981.
Former Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat visited Jerusalem
in November 1977, paving the
way for an Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty in 1979.
Despite the treaty, relations
between the two countries have
been described as a "cold peace."
Mr. Weizman reportedly tried
hard to persuade Mr. Mubarak
to change his mind, but without
While turning down the invi-
tation to visit Israel, Mr.
Mubarak and his ministers,
nonetheless, took pains to per-
suade the Israeli reporters — and
through them the Israeli public
— that Israeli-Egyptian relations
are warming.
The Egyptian president also
cautioned patience in negotia-


Gaza Strip to serve as a counter-
weight to the PLO.
Israel can not expect Mr.
Arafat to immediately overcome
a problem that Israel was origi-
nally responsible for, he said.
"It is not simple. These are
crazy people," said Mr. Mubarak,
who has had to contend with Is-
lamic fundamentalists in his own
But he added: "If anyone can
deal with the problem, Arafat
can. He is the most courageous

War Report
Is Revealed

Jerusalem (JTA) — Nearly 20
years after its completion, a re-
port by a commission investigat-
ing the 1973 Yom Kippur War
was made public.
The commission, established
to study the blunders that al-
lowed Israel to be caught off
guard, found that then-Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan had re-
jected the option of a pre-emptive
strike against Egypt and Syria.
The report also found that Is-
raeli intelligence reports at the
time were seriously flawed.
