Resolution 338 which imposes a binding legal obligation and commands the parties concerned to negotiate a just and durable peace immediately and concurrently with the ceasefire in accordance with Resolution 242; Israel not required to withdraw from its occupied territories until its Arab neighbors have made peace; Author's view that Kissinger's policy of ad hoc negotiation in the Middle East put fundamental security interests of the U.S. into unnecessary peril.
