Regan and Lebanon

July 1982
National Review;7/23/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 14, p874
The article discusses the realities of the Arab-Israeli conflict to be faced by U.S. President Ronald Reagan's proposed peace-keeping force in the Middle East. Israel has created a new situation for itself after its successful military operations in Lebanon. The Israeli forces have evacuated the Palestinian Liberation Organization from Beirut. This is regarded as a heavy defeat for the Palestinians. It is a fact that Israel is strong enough to face any combination of Arab forces. But there is a need for Israel's enemies to recognize Israel's strength and affirm its right to secure existence. An international peace-keeping force could play a significant role in any politically credible settlement, if all the parties act on these realities.
