  • Description

    In Israel, the success of the peace summit at Camp David caused widespread elation. But in some cases the news of the newly signed accord aroused mixed feelings, and right-wing Jewish nationalists called it a surrender by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Strongest criticism came from the extremists Gush Emunim movement , which is seeking mass Jewish settlement on captured Arab land. They described the agreement as a treason.

    SYNOPSIS: In Cairo, news of the agreement was reported in special editions of the Egyptian press. But there was little fanfare. The new agreement leaves a question-mark over the future of some ten-thousand Israeli settlers on occupied Arab land. But there was not mistaking the joy of these children, who live on a kibbutz near Jerusalem.

    One of the first broadcasting stations to announce the outcome of the summit was Israeli Television. On Monday morning (19 September) employees there were jubilant as programmes by satellite from Washington flowed in.

    As children danced in the street the Mayor of Bethlehem, Elias Friej, hailed the summit outcome with enthusiasm.

    But the Deputy Mayor of Ramallah Avdee Rantisi, was less enthusiastic about the summit outcome.
