The Fizzle at Fez

December 1981
National Review;12/25/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 25, p1524
The article ponders on whether the U.S. would accept the terms of Saudi Arabia Prince Fahd for an Arab-Israeli settlement in 1981. Such question was broached during a Foreign Ministers' session and was met with negative response. The intention of the formula of Fahd was only as a starting-point. The delegates of the Arab government must have known that the notion of getting the acceptance of the U.S. and the submission of Israel in advance was fantastic. It seemed that the query was a rhetorical cover-up and not a request for information.
