Reagan versus Regin

McLaughlin, John
October 1982
National Review;10/1/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 19, p1200
This article presents information on the increasing support for U.S. President Ronald Reagan in his policy towards Israel and his face off with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Every day U.S. public opinion mobilizes more behind the President, not only because of the perceived reasonableness of his plan, but also because Americans want the endured costs of the Israeli act to have a solid, constructive payoff. Americans saw that it was U.S. weaponry the Israelis used to inflict human and material wreckage on Tyre, Sidon, and Beirut in the effort to eliminate the Palestine Liberation Organization. The Administration believes that public opinion not only will back the Reagan plan, but will demand that it become the instrument of settlement in the Middle East.
