Shamir Calls for Weapons-Free Zone
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir is calling for the estab-
lishment of a nuclear weapons-
free zone in the Middle East,
as well as the establishment of
a chemical weapons-free zone
in the area.

Audrey Haubenitock
In remarks prepared for
delivery at the General
Assembly's third special
session on disarmament, the
Israeli leader also called on the
Arab nations to scale down the
arms race in the area.
"A nuclear weapons-free
zone, the end of the arms race
in the Middle East and the
universal banning of chemical
weapons are urgently needed,
not only for the sake of the
people in our region, but for
the sake of all mankind,"
Shamir declared.
The prime minister noted
that Israel has proposed a
nuclear weapons-free zone in
the past, but the Arabs have
rejected the idea and refused
to negotiate it with Israel.
"We do not understand this
blanket refusal," Shamir said.
"It reflects a consistent atti-
tude of rejection of any kind of
dealing with Israel, even on
matters of vital concern to the
security and future of the
peoples of our region."
Shamir also said that in
1986, Israel proposed to nego-
tiate a reduction of forces in
the Middle East. "We know
that the burden of the arms
race is devastating to the econ-
omies of all the countries in the
region. And it is getting
worse," he said.
Shamir said that it is urgent,
even before peace comes, to
stop the arms race in the
Middle East. He added that
Israel is greatly troubled by
the introduction of chemical
weapons into the region.
"The presence and use of
chemical weapons constitute a
real threat to the peace of our
region and to the peace of the
entire world. All enlightened
peoples should be alarmed by
the arbitrary use of these
weapons," he said.
The Israeli premier was
sharply critical of the use of
poison gas by Iraq in its war
with Iran. "Iraq has used this
vicious means of indiscrim-
inate killing in its war with
Iran. It is a gross and blatant
violation of the Geneva
protocol to which Iraq is signa-
tory," he said.
He also pointed out that
Syria has built facilities for the
production of poison gas, and
le charged that Syria's leaders
have threatened to use it
against Israel.

Welcome back Lisa Tawil, daughter of Judy and

hassee. She has been promoted to the assistant buyer for
junior dresses for Maas Brothers and their 38 stores.
Previously, Lisa was a manager of the Designer Salon.
We're glad you came "home!"
"She makes government
work." It sounds like a slogan,
and it is. It is also the truth,
and there are innumerable
people in Hillsborough County
who can readily attest to that.
By the time more than 100 of
them had approached Phyllis
Busansky to run for County
Commissioner, District 6 at-
large, the mandate was
compelling. On June 3 she
resigned from the upper level
management position as
director of the Hillsborough
County Department of Human
Resources, one she had held
for three years, and
announced her candidacy.
Phyllis has served the citi-
zens of Hillsborough County
for over eight years, first as
director of the Department of
Aging Services for five and a
half years. Known to clients
and, colleagues as a problem
solver, she is also known for
her personal warmth and
caring. Because of progressive
and responsive programs like
homemakers and senior
employment, many of the
county's older citizens
continue independent and
dynamic lives. The network of
nutrition sites and multipur-
pose centers also benefits the
families of participants,
providing them peace of mind
in the knowledge that the
physical and emotional needs
Phyllis Busansky
of their older relatives are
being addressed.
As director of the Depart-
ment of Human Resources,
Phyllis combined advanced
management practices with
proven traditional systems in
order to attract, retain and
develop personnel who could
serve a Hillsborough County
experiencing significant popu-
lation growth, business expan-
sion and residential develop-
ment.
"She makes government
work" by working from within
the system. Her ability to
motivate people, her energy
and persistence augment her
education and the eleven total
years of experience she has
had in county government.
Phyllis received a Bachelor of
Arts degree with distinction
from Wheaton College (Massa-
chusetts) and a Master's
degree in Management of
Human Services from the
Florence Heller Graduate
School of Social Welfare at
Brandeis University, where
she has since been invited as
guest lecturer.
A lifelong Democrat, Phyllis
has served on the board of
directors of Tampa Jewish
Family Services and is pres-
ently on the boards of Oasis
(Older Adult Services, Inc.), a
joint effort of public and
private groups and individuals
in the process of establishing a
day/health care facility for
frail elderly persons, including
those with Alzheimer's
disease, and Escot (Executive
Service Corps of Tampa). She
is also a member of the Busi-
ness and Professional
Women's League (BPW). She
and her husband, Sheldon,
members of Congregation
Beth Am, are the parents of
two sons and a daughter, all
adults. The family has resided
in Tampa for ten years.
TOP Life Income Plan Seek Home
Hospitality for
TOP With IRA's no
longer tax deductible for most
people, many persons are
looking for ways to supple-
ment their retirement income,
while still being able to make
gifts to their favorite charities.
An excellent mechanism for
achieving these goals is a char-
itable remainder trust.
Mr. C. is a 78-year-old
widower in Pinellas County.
He had some stock that he
purchased many years ago for
about $9,000, which was now
worth about $28,000. The
stock paid annual dividends
totalling $560.00, or about two
percent a year. If he decided to
sell the stock, he would have to
pay substantial capital gains
taxes. He therefore had an
asset that had dramatically
increased in value, but was
paying out small amounts.
Mr. C. was interested in
increasing his return to eight
percent, and in making gifts to
his favorite charities. He
decided to establish a charit-
able remainder annuity trust
with the TOP Jewish Founda-
tion.
The stock was donated to
TOP, which sold it the day it
was received. TOP will invest
the cash, and pay Mr. C. quar-
terly payments of $546 (total-
ling $2,184 per year).
Upon Mr. C's death, a
permanent fund will be estab-
lished in his name, and three
organizations
(Federation, JFS, and the
Upper Pinellas Association for
Retarded Citizens) will each
receive annual gifts from the
income in perpetuity.
He has therefore: increased
his income four times; received
a 1988 tax deduction of almost
$5,000 (based on his age, life
expectancy and size of gift);
and made substantial gifts to
three favorite charities.
Similar trusts may be set up
for a husband and wife. The
surviving spouse receives the
income until his/her death, at
which time the trust goes to
the Foundation. Cash, appreci-
ated real estate, stocks or
bonds may be used to start a
trust.
For more information, call
the TOP Jewish Foundation at
(407) 740-7332.
Israeli Student
A touch of Israel will come to
Tampa in August, when an
Israeli exchange student

year at Plant High School. The
young man is an honors
student and he is a member of
the Israel National Basketball
Team. He will study in Tampa
as part of an exchange
program.
Anyone who lives in the H.B.
Plant School District, who
would like to house this young
man, needs to contact Fred
Lowe at 831-3111. Fred is the
Assistant Basketball coach at
Plant and is a local attorney.

What's in a Name
A major Israeli university
has changed its English name:
HaUniversita HaPtucha will
henceforth be known as THE
OPEN UNIVERSITY OF
ISRAEL.
The decision to drop "Ever-
yman's" was approved by the
University's Governing
Council in April.
In New York on a brief visit,
Professor Nehemia Levtzion,
the University's President,
pointed out that the new name
an exact translation from
the Hebrew more accurately
reflects the character of the
institution.
There are no admissions
requirements or entrance
exams, Professor Levtzion
explained. Students do not
have to leave work and home
to earn a college degree. The
University's distance learning
system, which combines inde-
pendent study with extensive
tutorial services, makes any
home a campus.
The Open University was
founded by the Rothschild
Foundation and the Govern-
ment of Israel in 1974 to make
higher education universally
available in Israel. It is accred-
ited by the Israel Council for
Higher Education and grants
bachelor's degrees.
Each semester, it enrolls
12,000 students, including
soldiers, Project Renewal
activists, kibbutznicks, factory
workers and others for whom
attending a traditional campus
university is not a viable
option.
They study in their spare
time at home, factory or army
base and attend tutorial
sessions at one of 35 Learning
Centers maintained by the
University throughout Israel.
American Friends of Ever-
yman's University, with
offices in New York and Los
Angeles, raises funds to
support scholarships and
course development at The
Open University. The organi-
zation is one of the authorized
fund raising agencies listed by
the Jewish Agency Committee
on Control and Authorization
of Campaigns. It will change
its name to conform to the
University's new English
name.
MACHZOR FOR SOVIET JEWS More Jews in the Soviet
Union will be able to worship at Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur
services this year thanks to a gift of10,000 copies of two high holy
day prayerbooks air-shipped to Moscow by the Appeal of
Conscience Foundation. The prayerbooks in Hebrew, with
line-by-line translation into Russian were produced in the U.S.
from two volumes originally published in Vilna in 1897. They
were sent to the Soviet Union under an agreement between the
Foundation, and the Council of Religious Affairs of the USSR
Council of Ministers. Pictured above is the Machzor for Yom
Kippur with the Kol Nidre prayer that marks the start of the Day
of Atonement.
Kollek and Hammer Honored
AMSTERDAM (JTA) Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek
and American businessman Armand Hammer were among
four recipients of the annual Roosevelt Four Freedoms
Award presented in Middelburg. Middelburg, the capital of
the province of Zeeland, is the ancestral home of the
Roosevelt clan.

December, 1987, planned an
educational program on
Alzheimer's in the spring of
1988 and piloted the first

leadership for our home,"
Gross continued.

Page 4 The Jewish Floridian of Tampa/Friday, June 24, 1988
By GARY S. ALTER
Executive Vice President
Tampa Jewish Federation
Saying "goodbye" to an old
friend is a very difficult thing
to do. Almost ten years ago, I
met Fred Shochet, editor and
publisher of The Jewish Flor-
idian. He came to Tampa to
discuss the possibility of
publishing a Jewish newspaper
in Tampa with the help and
cooperation of the Tampa
Jewish Federation. His
proposal was accepted by the
Federation and thus began a
nine year relationship with
Shochet publications.
It has been a wonderful nine
years. Yes, there have been
ups and downs with the publi-
cation, but working together
we have successfully produced
an Anglo-Jewish newspaper
that has kept our community
well informed.
Fred Shochet has truly been
a good friend to our
community. One can not begin
to count the times Fred has
gone out of his way to accom-
modate our community. He
has tried in every way possible
to make The Jewish Floridian
a quality community news-
paper. The one drawback that
no one could overcome is the
physical distance between
Tampa and Miami. Publishing
a newspaper for Tampa in
Miami presents logistical prob-
lems that just couldn't be
solved.
We have also been blessed
during these past nine years
with two extremely capable
local editors. Judith Rosen-
kranz (five years) and Audrey
Haubenstock (four years) have
shared this responsibility.
They worked closely with Fred
and received his support and
guidance.
In the world of Jewish news-
paper publishing, Fred
Shochet is one of the giants.
Known as one of the "old
timers" in the Jewish news-
paper field, Fred enjoys a very
excellent reputation among his
peers.
The Tampa Jewish
Community owes Fred
Shochet their gratitude. We
are most grateful to him for
filling a very important role in
our community. We appreciate
his efforts on our behalf and
wish him continued success in
the future.
Thanks Fred!

The Board of Directors and Advisory Council of United
Synagogue of America passed a resolution calling upon the
International Committee of the Red Cross to recognize the
Magen David Adorn Society emblem. They also called upon
the Red Cross, which has recognized the Arab Red

of disease, injury and disaster.
ADL to Celebrate Latin Jews
To commemorate the 500th anniversary of Christopher
Columbus' discovery of the New World and to highlight the
contribution of Jews to the development of Latin America,
the Anti-Defamation League will sponsor a major museum
exhibition in 1992.
Titled "The Jewish Contribution to the New World: 500
Years of Jewish Life in Latin America," it will go on
display throughout Latin America and the United States.
The tri-lingual exhibition in Spanish, Portuguese and
English will be composed of photographs, paintings,
artifacts, documents and audio-visual displays, supported
by catalogues and other informative texts.
Israel Bonds Sets Record
NEW YORK (JTA) A record $77 million was raised
here at the annual State of Israel Bonds dinner.
Sixteen prominent Jewish fundraisers were honored with

Conference Calls for Economic Overhaul
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) Econ-
omists and business leaders
attending a symposium on
American-Israeli economic
relations have called for the
overhaul of the Israeli
economic structure.
Panelists at the three-day
conference criticized a system
that abounds in permit
requirements, lack of competi-
tion and a failure to blend into
the economic realities of other
countries of the world.
Participants offered daring
suggestions to help restruc-
ture the economy, yet the
overall atmosphere was one of
confusion, as those in attend-
ance were split in their overall
analysis as well as on basic
facts.
The symposium was organ-
ized by Dr. Mordecai Hacohen,
honorary chairman of the
American Israel Economic
Corporation and senior vice
president of Bank Leumi Trust
Company of New York.
It was held under the
auspices of the Consulate
General of Israel in New York;
U.S. Department of
Commerce; New York State
Urban Development Corpora-
tion; American-Israel
Chamber of Commerce;
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations; the Jewish
Community Relations Council
of New York; Bank Leumi
Trust Company of New York
and El Al Israel Airlines.
Up to 100 people were in
attendance at various sessions,
as they listened to papers
delivered by Israelis and
Americans. Some of the
subjects addressed at the
conference were free enter-
prise; industrial organization;
high technology; international
trade.

Adopt-A-Family
The Central Florida Council
for Soviet Jewry is expanding
its Adopt-a-Family program.
Adopting a refusenik family
involves consistent, ongoing
communication and commit-
ment to a refusenik or re-
fusenik family through writing
to the family, as well as to
Soviet and American govern-
ment officials on their behalf.
In the past the council has
concentrated on adoptions by
Central Florida government
officials, congregations, and
local chapters of Jewish organ-
izations. They are now
offering this unique program
to individual members of the
Jewish community.
The goals of this program
are to inform the Soviet
government that Jews are not
being forgotten, that the re-
fusenik is known in the West,
and that others will be aware
of what happens to them. Most
importantly, it reminds the
refuseniks that we care about
them.
Our letters mean encourage-
ment and moral support to
them. It makes their hardships
easier to bear and often acts as
protection against harass-
ment.
If you are willing to spend 10
or 15 minutes every month
writing a letter, you, too, can
adopt a family.

0248.
East Germany Denied
Trade Status
BONN (JTA) The U.S.
State Department rebuffed
East Germany in its apparent
efforts to be accorded most-
favored-nation trade status,
despite its stated readiness to
make available some $100
million in reparations to
Jewish survivors of the Holo-
caust.
Speaking with reporters in
Potsdam. East Germany,
Deputy Secretary of State
John Whitehead said that the
United States links most-
favored-nation status in trade
relations to a country's record
on human rights.
It has become increasingly
apparent in the last week that
East Germany has been
seeking a change in its trade
status as part of a package
that would include assistance
to Jewish survivors.
Earlier, East German leader
Erich Honecker met with the
leader of West Germany's
Jewish community, Heinz
Galinski, to iron out details of
a plan that would make 100
million marks ($58 million)
available to victims of Nazism.
Responding to reporters'
?> f t t ? ?
questions, Whitehead said it
remains up to East Germany
to tear down the Berlin Wall,
the concrete barrier that has
become a symbol of the
communist country's repres-
sion of dissidents and others.
Whitehead also noted that
there were no plans for a visit
to Washington by Honecker.
The East Germans were said
to be pressing for such a visit,
in order to broaden their base
of legitimacy and improve
their relations with the United
States. It was hoped that a
reparations agreement could
pave the way.
In a shift of its long-standing
policy, East Germany made
known last year, and
confirmed recently, that it was
ready to compensate Jewish
survivors of the Holocaust.
Negotiations are taking
place in the United States
between the Conference on
Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany and a dele-
gation headed by East
Germany's ambassador to
Washington.
But East Germany has
increasingly linked this new

ities and his support of the State of Israel.

policy to possible trade
arrangements, which would
facilitate its access to the
- American market.
Top officials in East
Germany, including Honecker,
repeatedly mentioned that a
lack of hard Western currency
could be a factor jeopardizing
the reparations payments.
Whitehead spoke in Potsdam
with Foreign Minister Oskar
Fischer about the reparations.
Whitehead reported that the
issue was still "wide open,"
with the both sides unsure how
much would be paid and how
the money would be made
available to survivors.

On Human Rights:
Spain Raps Israel
By TAMAR LEVY
GENEVA (JTA) Prime Minister Felipe Gonzales of Spain
rapped Israel for its alleged violations of human rights in
connection with the six-month-old Palestinian uprising in the
administered territories.
Addressing the conference of the International Labor Organi-
zation here, Gonzales said, "It is logical that our concern has
grown during the last months with regard to the violation of
human rights in the Arab territories occupied by Israel."
The Spanish government, he said, "supports the search for a
global, just and lasting solution to the conflict in the Middle East
and any decision the ILO might adopt in the sphere of its
authority." The ILO is a United Nations agency.
U.S. Official, Rabin
Reach Understanding
TEL AVIV (JTA) Richard
Schifter, the U.S. assistant
secretary of state for human
rights and humanitarian
affairs, is said to be pleased
with the understanding he
reached in talks here with
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin.
The matter they discussed
was the reporting and investi-
gation of human rights viola-
tions in the Israeli-
administered territories. This
has been a sore point between
Washington and Jerusalem on
which the United States
recently warned Israel.
Schifter met with Rabin
after touring the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. He expressed
his satisfaction at a meeting
with Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres.
B'nai B'rith Fears
New Legislation Could
Weaken 'Jackson-Vanik'
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
B'nai B'rith International
has expressed concern that
pending legislation that would
seemingly make it harder for
the Soviet Union to receive
most-favored-nation trade
benefits from the United
States may in fact dilute the
effectiveness of the Jackson-
Vanik Amendment.
The legislation, in the form
of an amendment to the mili-
tary budget bill adopted by the
Senate by a voice vote, would
require the president to certify
to Congress in writing that the
Soviet Union or any other
country is "in substantially
complete compliance" with the
human rights provisions of the
Helsinki Accords, before it
could receive the trade bene-
fits.
(The House bill does not
contain the provision, but
observers expect it to go along
when the Senate-House
conference committees iron
out the differences in the two
bills.)
The amendment, introduced
by Sen. James McClure (R-
Idaho), goes beyond the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment,
which withholds most-favored-
nation status for the Soviet
Union until emigration from
the USSR is increased.
The legislation defines
"substantially complete
compliance" as upholding the
Helsinki Accords "with any
violations clearly the rare and
exceptional act of local author-
ities contrary to established
policy and generally observed
practice in such country."
Seymour Reich, president of
B'nai B'rith International, said
in a statement that this was a
"wholly unrealistic demand"
that would "effectively
neutralize the intent and effec-
tiveness of Jackson-Vanik."
He urged Congress to reject
this "ill-conceived measure,
which can only discourage the
Kremlin from further relaxing
its emigration policies.'*
In urging adoption of the
amendment, McClure told the
Senate that he was acting
because of reports that the
Reagan administration was
considering granting most-
favored-nation status to the
Soviets.
H.D. Palmber, McClure's
press secretary, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the purpose of the amend-
ment was not to dilute
Jackson-Vanik.
He said its aim was to induce
compliance by the Soviets with
the whole range of human
rights provisions of the
Helsinki Accords, including
emigration, if the Soviets
wanted to be included as a
most favored nation.
At a news conference in
Moscow, Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev made no secret of
the importance he places on
increased trade with the
United States.
Gorbachev also specifically
attacked the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment, charging that the
USSR has been receiving
"unfavored-nation treat-
ment."

Anti-Terror Law
Nets Convictions
<&
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Four Israelis who met with
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion representatives in
Romania in November 1986
were found guilty in the Ramla
magistrates court of violating
Israel's 1948 prevention of
terrorism act.
The law, as amended in
August 1986, was interpreted
by the court as forbidding
Israelis from having contacts
with members of organizations
outlawed by the state.
The conviction was the first
handed down under the
amended law. Sentencing is
scheduled for later this month.
The defendants face up to
three years in prison.
Convicted were Eliezer
Feiler, Reuven Kaminer, Latif
Dori and Yael Lotan, the
leaders of an Israeli delegation
that met with PLO representa-
tives at a seaside resort in
Romania.
Feiler belongs to Kibbutz
Yad Hanna. Kaminer is deputy
director of the Hebrew Univer-
sity's school for overseas
students. Dori is a Mapam
Party activist and Lotan
writes for Al Hamishmar, the
Mapam newspaper.
The four plan to appeal the
conviction. Their lawyer,
Amnon Zichroni, said the 1948
law did not apply in this case,
because the purpose of the
meeting in Romania was "to
further the cause of peace and
to end the bloodshed in this
country.

Hate-Crimes Laws
By
ANDREW SI LOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith has intensified
its efforts against bias-
motivated vandalism and
intimidation with a call for
nationwide adoption of its
model hate-crimes legislation.
The legislation, contained in
an edition of the "ADL Law
Report" that was released on
the opening day of the organi-
zation's 75th annual meeting,
calls for increased criminal
penalties for vandalism of reli-
gious or ethnic institutions and
For racially or ethnically moti-
vated personal attacks.
In addition, it requires law
enforcement officials to collect
data on incidents of bigotry
and to provide special hate
crimes training for police offi-
cers.
The new report puts special
emphasis on data collection,
which ADL's national
chairman, Burton Levinson,
called a "necessary and crucial
weapon" in combatting hate
crimes.
According to Levinson, out
of more than 30 states which
have enacted hate-crimes stat-
utes, fewer than 10 provide for
the collection and analysis of
bias-related data.
Tear Gas Accusations
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A team
of doctors made public a report
accusing the Israel Defense
Force of flagrant violations of
its own regulations governing
the use of tear gas to disperse
rioters in the Gaza Strip.
The doctors charged that
many of the Palestinian casual-
ties from the beginning of the
uprising, last December, until
April were the result of tear
gas fired in closed areas. It
caused at least 30 pregnant
women to miscarry, the
doctors claimed.
Gas should be fired in front
of the disorderly crowds, not
into them, and soldiers should
be given the proper training,
the report said.
The team of six doctors was
organized by Knesset member
Dedi Zucker of the left-of-
center Citizen Rights Move-
ment to investigate medical
conditions in the Gaza Strip.
They had the full cooperation
of the IDF.

Potential Change on
Mideast Political Map
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
change in American-Soviet
relations, underscored at the
recent Moscow summit, is
having a dramatic impact in
the Middle East.
Perhaps the most significant
remark attributed to U.S.
Secretary of State George
Shultz, in his latest swing
through the region, was
reported by journalists after
Shultz's long meeting with
Syrian President Hafez Assad
in Damascus.
The secretary was quoted as
saying it was astonishing that
the parties involved in the
Middle East conflict seem to
have dug into their hard-line
positions while the two super-
powers were moving toward
agreement. By adversely
contrasting the rigidity of the
regional leaders with the
newly found flexibility
between the superpowers,
Shultz was plainly referring to
Israeli Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, as well as to Assad.
His pointed characterization
of his working session with
Shamir as "frank," as well as
leaked reports of his cables to
Washington, indicated the
secretary was as angry and
frustrated as ever with what
he regards as stonewalling by
Shamir. Shultz's exasperation
seemed to be reflected in the
wry remarks from White
House spokesman Marlin
Fitzwater. He poured cold
water on any upbeat specula-
tion that Middle East peace
prospects are any better than,
they have been for 2,000 years.
Significantly, Shultz allowed
much of his displeasure with
Shamir's Likud half of the
Israeli government to spill out
in his public pronouncements.
He made a point of stressing
the land-for-peace equation as
the basis of UN Security
Council Resolution 242, on
both his arrivals in Israel and
in Amman, Jordan. Shultz
warned vigorously that "the
continued occupation of the
West Bank and Gaza and the
frustration of Palestinian
rights is a dead-end street."
Shultz stressed throughout
his tour of the area that he had
been encouraged, for the first
time, by the Soviet attitude on
Middle East issues, expressed
during the summit meeting
between President Reagan
and Mikhail Gorbachev. He let
it be known that contacts will
continue between Washington
and Moscow. There will be
another meeting between U.S.
Assistant Secretary of State
for Near Eastern and South
Asian Affairs Richard Murphy
and his Soviet counterpart,
and possibly another session
this summer devoted to the
Middle East between Shultz
and the Soviet foreign
minister, Eduard Shevard-
nadze.
Shultz hinted that he himself
might return to the region for
yet another attempt to
advance his peace initiative
before the election campaigns
here and in the United States
begin in earnest.
All of this has astonished
observers here. The secretary
of state seems to be articu-
lating for the first time an
American policy that embraces
the Soviet Union as a full
partner in Mideast peace diplo-
macy. In the past, such a policy
would be unheard of.
The superpowers are in fact
moving, albeit at a frustrat-

ingly slow pace, to narrow the
gap between their respective
views of the nature and
meaning of an international
conference for Middle East
peace. When the gap is closed,
they could conceivably move in
concert to convene such a
conference.
Shultz and other administra-
tion officials are realistic
enough to acknowledge that
this may not happen before the
end of the year, which is also
near the end of the Reagan
administration's term in
office. But Shultz is genuinely
concerned over a potential
slide toward war in the region
in the absence of diplomatic
progress. He says, bravely
perhaps, that his current
efforts will serve to pave the
way for further advances
under the next administration
in Washington.
