June 1985
New Republic;6/24/85, Vol. 192 Issue 25/26, p5
The article comments on the diplomatic activist approach by the administration of U.S. President Ronald Reagan to the Middle East peace process. It is hard to believe the American collaboration for the political and diplomatic rehabilitation of Yasir Arafat, leader of the Palestine Liberation. The reintroduction of Arafat into power is bad news for Palestinian Arabs. This approach would destroy Israel's confidence in the U.S.
