    KIRYAT SHMONA, ISRAEL

    Israeli prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir said on June 17 that Israel should negotiate with Syria on "the entire Lebanese question".He was speaking during a visit to Kiryat Shmona in Northern Israel, near the Lebanese-Syrian frontier.On his arrival, he was greeted by a rabbi with a traditional offering of bread and salt, and a flag-waving crowd gathered to hear his address.The previous day, his Defence Minister, Moshe Arens, had warned that what he called internal tensions within the Syrian Government might push Damascus into war with Israel.Israel and Syrian forces currently maintain heavy military forces in Lebanon.An estimated 20,000 Israelis are stationed in Southern Lebanon, while some 40,000 Syrians occupy North and East Lebanon.In his speech, Shamir declared that the Syrian Government would find Israel "a serious and credible negotiating partner".The Israeli presence in Southern Lebanon has become an election issue: Labour opposition leader Shimon Peres was quoted on June 16 as saying the troops could be withdrawn in a couple of months if he came to power in the July elections.Reacting to this statement, Shamir condemned the opposition for "hiding" and warned that an Israel withdrawn from South Lebanon would made Kiryat Shmona vulnerable to missile attacks.
