Reagan and the Mideast

Buckley Jr., W.M.F.
October 1982
National Review;10/1/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 19, p1240
This article presents information on the initiatives of U.S. President Ronald Reagan in the Middle East. The agreement in 1978 at Camp David is the only document since United Nations Resolution 242, executed in 1967, that has been signed between contending powers in the Mideast. Israel lived up honorably to its commitment to quit the Sinai. A policy in the Mideast, because it is the chosen policy of Israel, cannot become the policy of the United States. Not only because it is wrong to hand over plenipotentiary rights to Israel or to any country. The author observes that Israel is in so many respects a great moral phenomenon, a self-made democratic state, created by sweat and blood, the incarnation of a historical vision, a foster child of the United States and of other well-meaning powers.
