This article suggests that the U.S. should take a stronger and more assertive line in the search for Middle East peace during the reconvening of negotiation between Israel and Arab countries in Geneva, Switzerland. The administration of President Jimmy Carter, just like the previous administrations in the last 20 years, is afraid that taking a stronger line in the peace process will lead to criticism that it is anti-Israel. The U.S. and its people has special sympathy and bias for Israel, but the country should recognize too that incisiveness and determination are needed in order to establish between Israelis and Arabs. The Arabs and the Israelis are in a constant effort to discredit each other through propaganda to support their stands.
