ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the restoration of normalcy in the foreign relations between Israel, Lebanon and Syria as called for by U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig in 1981. It identifies the causes of unrest and violence in the countries involved. It emphasizes the contribution of Syria to the escalation of hostilities with its introduction of surface-to-air missiles in Lebanon. It contends that such a move will result to the reactivation of direct warfare between Syria and Israel. It also acknowledges the indirect role of the Soviet Union in the crisis in the Middle East.
