Nov. 19 for a first dramatic meeting
with leaders of the nation his country
fought in four wars.
THAT MEETING led to another bet-

Menahem Begin on Christmas day at
Ismailia, Egypt. Unable to reach a
breakthrough in matters of substance,
Sadat and Begin arranged the political
conference in Jerusalem and parallel
military talks in Cairo.
The first session of the military talks
adjourned last week to await develop-
ments of the Jerusalem talks. They
were scheduled to .resume today but
Israeli television reported the talks ap-
parenty will be postponed.

AHMED, a member of the Organi-
zation of Arab Students, said most
Arab students here feel that the
break in negotiations is "a technical
bluff on the part of Sadat to pressure
the Americans to pressure the Is-
raelis to make more concessions."
In addition, Ahmed said, Sadat is
trying ti "assuage Arab critics and
gain back some lost prestige."
Added Ahmed: "Maybe he's hop-
ing that after this show of force, the
concessions will seem less harsh."
JOHN DIRECTOR* coordinator
for the Student Union for Progressive
Judaism, said, "I'm disappointed
and a little bit surprised." Director
feels Israel could have been more
flexible. "I'm hoping that Sadat
thinks this maneuver may force
Israel to come back to the peace
table with something he believes is
more negotiable," he said.
Despite yesterday's development,
Director is optimistic that the peace
talks will continue. "Peace is imper-
ative," he said.
