It (the Egyptfan government) believes that Europe or the United States will use pressure" to make Israel change its position. The Premier, in an interview due to appear in the forthcoming issue of the French weekly magazine, "Le Nouvel Observateur," added: "No one, and this should be known, no one can exert any pressure on us. I • presented our peace plan to everybody. Everybody knows that our peace plan provides for settlements (in Sinai). (President) Carter knows it.

Sharing the podium and sharing their impressions on the Mideast situation were Joseph Polakoff, the Jewish ' Telegraphic Agency's Washington correspondent, and Co-, lumbus' Gordon. Zacks, who is currently national vice chairman of the United Jewish Appeal. In expressing his concern for the events of the past week (in which . Egypt's President Sadat recalled his foreign minister from Jerusalem, thus breaking off the • current negotiations), Zacks suggested four possible theories that may be part of Sadat's original intentions for going to Israelii) November. - Sadat never intended to negotiate for peace, but only wanted to create the "public image of the peace seeker." Sadat is simply behaving irrationally under great stress and strain. Sadat is npw having second thoughts over the wisdom, of his actions and is experiencing external pressures.from the radical Arab world: Sadat is under( internal pressure from his government and military. Zacks urged his audience of approximately 75 men and women to plan and prepare for the worst and pray for the best.' That worst could include a major political and public relations battle in Cqngress to secure assistance for Israel, if the peace negotiations are rup tured and if Sadat succeeds in eroding U.S. support for Israel.

The lirst part appeared in last week's Chronicle. Part II Cyrus Vance is of the opinion that a Geneva conference is still feasible and necessary. "I believe there should be a Geneva conference and so do Begin and Sadat," he added. "A comprehensive settlement will require a meeting of all parties to the dispute and Geneva is"an appropriate forum';-"'^' . Asked; ^hat President Sadat meant when he said that "Washington now holds 99 per cent of the cards" in any Mideast solution, Vance replied, "It's possible that he may mean that we have the power to bring about a solution through pressure. I want to make it clear that we will not use the withholding, of necessary military or economic assistance as a pressure tactic upon Israel." Will Sadat accept an Israeli military presence in Sharm El Sheikh, the entrance to the Straits of Tiran and Israel's southern port of Eiiat?<. ■ .

"The American media is not objective," according to Joseph Polakoff, who as chief of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency's Washington Bureau, can be considered quite knowledgeable on the subject. In Columbus on January 22 to speak to the Columbus Chapter of Hadassah's Education Day, Polakoff also held an interview with the Ohio Jewish Chronicle. The Chronicle carries many of Polakof f's articles. .The veteran ..newsman feels that the American public has a long way to go in knowing the complete truth concerning \vorld events. This is because many reporters ask questions and report only what they want the public to know about and are not truly objective, he said. Polakoff, who has been with the JTA for seven years and prior to that spent 28 years with U.S. foreign information organizations, noted that at press conferences in the nation's capital, many reporters deliberately ask questions in such a way that the answers come out slanted. In urging his audience'to not accept everything heard" or read in the news media as, the full version, Polakoff recommended reading several newspapers and comparing their coverage of (he same event. , (CONTINUED ON PIXGEIi Israel's Consul General To Speak At Friends' Dinner EI Sheikh — in my judgment — can be, for example, guaranteed by United Nations Forces in a way that will be satisfactory to both parties," Vance responded.
