Mideast peace ruled out

(Continued from Page 1)

Attempts at peace in the Middle East
probably won't narrow the gap between
Israel and the Arab nations, a Tel Aviv
University research associate told a
large audience at Hillel Monday night.
Dan Schueftan, presently on a lecture
tour in the United States, said he would
be surprised if the features of the long-
standing Arab-Israeli conflict change
The slow, stately stride of the

legs can carry it over the ground at

because of the peace talks.
NEITHER THE Arabs nor the
Israelis would "be prepared to accept a
compromise solution in the Middle East
unless all of their aims are achieved,"
he said. Schueftan said he thinks the
Arabs cannot accept a non-Arab
sovereign in the Middle East, and that
is the center of the conflict. "The Arab-
Israeli conflict started when the Jews
claimed a collective right to live in
Israel," he said.
He said he thinks the Arabs would be
equally hostile to any non-Arab state
under Moslem sovereignty.


the Arab Zionism

as "an in-

vasion into the Arab lands.
"The Arab attitude believes the
Zionist invasion must be rooted out in
the same terms of the Crusaders and
the Mongols," he said.
Schueftan also criticized Carter's
Mideast policy, saying that policy is a
major obstacle in the Middle East.
"AMERICAN POLICY makes it im-
possible for both parts to make con-
cessions. Since the United States has
accepted Sadat's position, Sadat can't,
even if he wanted to, compromise on
anything," he said.
Schueftan attacked the Carter Ad-
ministration for retreating on its
promise of arms to Israel. He said it is
the first American administration to
back down from a commitment of this
Referring to Egyptian President
Sadat's trip to Israel last November,
Schueftan called it the first step toward
unraveling Zionism. Schueftan said he
believes Sadat realizes the only way to
combat Zionism and Israel was to undo
it step-by-step.
"Sadat realized he couldn't bring out
the destruction of Israel immediately.
He believes this stage may take a long
time, but in the end the Arabs will be
victorious," said Schueftan.

He said a three-pronged tank
assault was under way in wouther-
nmost Lebanon and the Arqoub
region in the foothills of Mount Her-
mon, once the main theater of cross-
border guerrilla strikes against
Jewish settlements.
THE ISRAELI announcement of
the border crossing said nothing of
the size of the operation.
As far south as Tel Aviv, about 75
miles from the border, jets and
helicopters roared overhead.
Throughout Monday and yesterday,
Israeli soldiers and equipment
moved northward.
David Hitchcock, a spokesman for
the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, in-
dicated the Americans were not
taken by surprise: "I won't say we
had advance knowledge of this, but
we have been consulting constantly
with the Israelis."
ISRAELI RADIO; which had shut
down for the night, reopened for
broadcasting an hour later to carry
live reports from northern Israel.
"We hope later to carry reports
from the fighting itself," an announ-
cer said.

"Our children are all in the
shelters," one Israeli civil guar-
'dsman told a radio reporter. "Bet-
ween the explosions we sing and
talk. Sleeping is hard."
THE BORDER crossing yester-
day came three days after
Palestinian terrorists attacked two
buses on the Tel Aviv-Haifa road,
killing 33 Israelis, and one day after
Prime Minister Menachem Begin -
responding to the attack - vowed to
"cut off the arm of evil."
Israel's announcement said its
forces did not intend to harm the
population, the Lebanese army or
Arab forces keeping the peace after
the recent Lebanese civil war -
"but only terrorists and their
It said, "The objective of the
operation is not retaliation for the
terrorist crime, for there can be no
retaliation for the murder of in-
nocent men, women and children,
but to protect the State of Israel and
its citizens from incursions of mem-
bers of Fatah and the PLO who use
Lebanese territory to attack citizens
of Israel."

announce details of cross-border
operations until they are completed,
and news of military activities is
subject to heavy censorship.
CBS News described the operation
as the largest since the 1973 Middle
East war.
Arafat claimed earlier yesterday
in Beirut that three brigades of
Israeli tanks, paratroopprs and
mechanized units were deployed for
a large-scale assault on guerrilla
strongholds in the south of Lebanon.
Diplomatic sources in Washington
said Israeli intelligence had
received reports prior to the
operation that the PLO was planning
further terrorist strikes within
Israel. Sources in Tel Aviv said
yesterday that interrogation of the
two terrorists who survived the
Saturday raid indicated seven more
Palestinians were on Cyprus plan-
ning another attack.
The cross-border operation came
on the same day as a condemnation
of the terrorist raid by President
Anway Sadat ofEgypt - whose
peace talks with the Israelis have
been opposed by the PLO.

new contract does not contain so-called'
"labor stability" language giving com-
panies the right to punish wildcat strike
leaders. Industry officials believe they
have some authority under an ar-
bitrator's ruling to discipline leaders of
wildcat strikes, although arbitrators
have the final word.
* Companies could put productivity
incentives into place at mines where
the local UMW membership voted in
their favor. The rejected contract con-
tained no incentives.
* A program that could have meant
dismissal for miners guilty of repeated
absenteesm would be dropped. The
proposal, which was unpopular with the
miners, was in the rejected contract.
" Retirees who have been receiving a
maximum pension of $250 a month
would receive an immediate boost to
$275. Under the rejected contract, the
pension increase would have gone into
effect gradually over three years.
. Widows of miners would retain
health benefits for five years.
* The industry agreed to liberalize
pension eligibility rules contained in the
rejected contract.
EVEN IF THE miners accept the
contract, it would not necessarily
assure an end to the strike. The UMW
and the Association of Bituminous Con-
tractors are negotiating a separate
agreement to cover an estimated 14,000
construction miners.
One industry spokesperson said the
two sides still have "some basic gut
issues" to resolve. "We have some
tough bargaining ahead of us," said the
spokesperson, who asked not to be iden-
tified by name.
