ABSTRACT
This article focuses on various political developments in different countries. U.S. President Ronald Reagan is on a political roll. His progress was not stopped by the override of his veto of the $14-billion public spending bill. Of the ten absentees on the vote, seven were Republicans. Oriana Fallaci interviewed Israel's Defense Minister Ariel Sharon which appeared in the August 29, 1982 issue of the newspaper "Washington Post." Fallaci asked Sharon whether Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat had not been handed a political victory in Beirut by the manner in which the Israelis conducted themselves, and by the manner in which Arafat conducted himself. Sharon replied that the movement started by the Palestine Liberation Organization had failed.
