Buckley Jr., W.M.F.
October 1976
National Review;10/1/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 37, p1082
The article discusses the U.S. intervention in the Arab-Israeli conflict in 1976. The author asserts that political leader Spiro Agnew has a lot of concerns over the stability of politics on the Middle East. He has been going around provoking the friends of Israel with grand statements of concerns over peace and justice in the region which give pained overtones of satisfaction achieved by animadversions on Israel. The author also states that anybody with any feeling whatever should express sympathy for the Palestinian refugees. It is a mistake to assume that every one of the million refugees is a follower of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat.
