A MIDEAST PACT: NOT SO FAST (int'l edition)

Unfortunately, while Prime Minister Rabin feels there is time pressure on him to negotiate a settlement with Yassir Arafat and the Palestine Liberation Mrganization ("Israel: Why Rabin is pushing to get a peace deal done," International Outlook, July 10), there is no corresponding urgency on the part of Yassir Arafat. To the detriment of Israel's future security, Rabin has been forced to make all the concessions in the current round of peace talks in an effort to conclude an agreement before the Labor Party is removed from power in the 1996 Israeli elections. With so much at stake, Rabin has surrendered not only the West Bank but is also well on his way to giving up the strategic Golan Heights without achieving real peace.

This rush to peace is a catastrophe for Israel, threatening its very existence in a region where might is the only guarantor of security.
