The Palestine Ploy

Crozier, Brian
May 1981
National Review;5/1/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 8, p475
The article calls for U.S. President Ronald Reagan to assert his leadership and decline to be distracted by European arguments on the Palestinian problem in the Middle East in 1981. It explores the divergent positions of the U.S. and Europe on the Palestinian question. It warns on the clear and present danger posed by the Soviet expansion into the region which began with the invasion of Afghanistan. It rejects the position of the British government on the issue which puts an emphasis on peace. It justifies the U.S. position that some things are worth fighting for.
