In the "Herut" newspaper, Begin argues that the draft of a UN resolution calling for direct negotiations between Arabs and Israel will not lead to positive results. There would be a stalemate in regards to the Arab refugee question. Furthermore, it would be a delusion of Arab nations recognizing Israel. To strengthen his argument, he references to the U.S. still refusing to recognize Communist China even after years of direct negations. He reminds his readers that an overwhelming majority of UN members opposed or abstained from voting for this resolution. With this, Begin concludes that such results show that the world accepts the irregular relationship between Arabs and Israel.
