Another Chance

April 1979
National Review;4/13/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 15, p460
This article discusses the challenge facing the U.S. in the Middle East. The reaction of Arab League countries to the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt indicates that conflict between Arab countries and Israel will continue. The belligerent attitude of Arab countries is aided and abetted by the Soviet Union. It is important then for the U.S. to leverage itself in the fast moving events in the Middle East. The country is in difficult position as Israel is an ally and the country has interest also in Arab countries in the form of guaranteed supply of crude oil.
