A review of

Arab unity

Begin nixes
D.C. s-uirlmit

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)-The Syrian-
* Libyan merger proclaimed yesterday
is the latest attempt to unify Arab coun-
tries. Here are some of the major unity
plans of the last 22 years:
* In 1958, Egypt and Syria merged into
the United Arab Republic, which
collapsed in 1961 after Egypt tried to
force the socialist ideal on the Syrian
* ALSO IN 1958, the Jordanian and the
Iraqi monarchies, both ruled by mem-

bers of the ashemite family, instituted a
federal union to counter Egyptian-
Syrian unity. The federation collapsed
when the Iraqi monarchy was over-
thrown in a bloody coup that year.
" In 1972 Libya, Egypt, Syria, and
Sudan formed a Federation of Arab
Republics. Sudan dropped out shortly
afterwards because of internal political
problems and the federation effectively
dissolved after the 1973 Mideast War.
" Libya and Tunisia signed a unity pact
in 1974, but it was repudiated by Tunisia

within months.
* IN 1971 SEVEN southern Arabian
sheikdoms-Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Shar-
jah, Aajman, Ras al Khaima, Um al
Quwain, and Fujaira-confederated in
the United Arab Emirates. The new
state has survived at least three
disagreements between Abu Dhabi and
Dubai over budget sharing and armed
forces command.
* In 1977 and 1979, pro-Western North
Yemen and Marxist South Yemen

signed unity plans but the plans yielded
no concrete results.
* Egypt and Sudan signed an economic
integration plan and, despite differen-
ces over the peace drive between Egypt
and Israel, the Sudanese have retained
several joint projects with the Egyp-
* In 1979, Syria and Iraq signed a
merger pact, but the two countries have
singe been locked in a war of words with
each accusing the other of mounting
subversion attacks.

From the Associated Press
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
said yesterday Israel would not accept
a Camp David-style summit in
Washington as a substitute for resum-
ption of talks on Palestinian autonomy.
But at a meeting in Egypt, President
Anwar Sadat and Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir of Israel apparently made
some progress on repairing the rift that
has developed between the two coun-
In an action aimed at both Israel and
Egypt, Syria and Libya yesterday
proclaimed a merger of the 'two Arab
states and vowed to confront Israel,
"liberate Palestine" and oppose the
American-sponsored Mideast peace
moves that resulted in an Israel-Egypt
peace pact.
Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy
proclaimed the merger in a joint com-
munique broadcast by Damascus and
Tripoli radios after two days of talks in

Syria merge

and the agent regime of Sadat."
Assad and Khadafy have accused
Sadat of betraying the Arab cause and
signing a separate peace with Israel.
Egypt, the largest Arab country, bore
the brunt of the fighting in four Arab-
Israeli wars. Syria fought in three of the
wars, but Libya has not directly par-
ticipated in fighting against Israel.
For Assad, whose nation is plagued
by violent opposition from Moslem fun-
damentalist groups, the merger would
enhance his role as a Pan-Arab leader.
For Khadafy, it advances his ideal of
Arab unity.
LIBYA'S $35 BILLION a year oil in-
come could also be a boon to Assad's ef-
,forts to modernize and upgrade his
Soviet-equipped armies.
The communique did not name the
new state and did not say who would be
president or where the seat of gover-
-jnent' would be. It said a
"revolutionary congress" would
Passume legislative powers. Informed
-sources said most likely there would be
a presidency council, with Khadafy and
Assad alternately assuming the

fighting between militias and the
Lebanese army erupted in Beirut.

"Unlike most of the 'improvements' touted
in new products, the benefits here are neither
subtle nor subject to much argument. The
Dual pickup system tracked the most sever-
ely warped records in our collection, ususally
so well that we heard nothing wrong.
Dual has taken a rather bold step by incor-
porating a radically new integrated arm and
