KAWANA, Japan -- Escaping from their respective domestic political woes, Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin and Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto began a 24-hour "no-necktie" summit yesterday at a Japanese seaside resort where they agreed to pursue more economic cooperation between the long-estranged neighbors.Looking robust and alert despite a winter of illnesses and a nearly 10-hour flight from Moscow, the 67-year-old Yeltsin had a 92-minute meeting with Hashimoto to discuss such issues as using Japanese technology to curb energy-guzzling Russia's greenhouse gas emissions, joint space exploration and swift disbursement of $1.5 billion in development loans for Russia.

Until this year, the world would have been looking at the intensifying armed confrontation between Israel and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip with a sense of deja vu all over again. But this is 2012, and the political map of the Middle East has changed dramatically in ways that make the Israel-Gaza confrontation far more dangerous for every country in the region, especially those that border Israel and Palestine. Great danger also exists for the United States and Europe in the latest confrontation.

The characterization by Adil E. Shamoo and Bonnie Bricker ("Egypt's hopeful path," June 7) of Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate for the upcoming Egyptian presidential runoff, as a moderate is an exercise in wishful thinking. The Arabic website of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood regularly features articles denying the Holocaust and warning Muslims against the covetous and exploitative nature of the "Jewish character," extolling jihad and martyrdom, and condemning Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.

TOKYO -- With Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev due here Tuesday for a historic summit, no one on either side is guessing how far the trip will warm relations between two Far Eastern neighbors that still don't have a World War II peace treaty.Mr. Gorbachev will make history simply by the arrival of his special plane Tuesday morning, for he will be the first top leader of his country -- imperial Russia or the Soviet Union -- to come here for a summit meeting.To make sure that Mr. Gorbachev and Prime Minister Toshiki Kaifu will have something tangible to show after the four-decade wait since World War II for a Tokyo summit meeting, diplomats have prepared a stack of 14 documents for them to sign -- the usual stuff of improving relations, like cultural exchanges, trade exhibitions, environmental protection and long-deceased citizens buried in each others' countries.

THE CHECHNYA CRISIS did not end yesterday with the swearing in of rebel leader Aslan Maskhadov as the secessionist nation's first president. If the bloody 21-month war was tortuously difficult, so will be the road to normalcy.Among the 13 candidates, Mr. Maskhadov was the most moderate. His convincing victory showed that Chechnyans are weary of bloodshed. They saw the 45-year-old Mr. Maskhadov, who had negotiated a peace treaty with hesitant Russians, as a conciliator and pragmatist capable of assuring peace.

"The war on terror is over," or so claims an unnamed senior State Department official, as reported by National Journal's Michael Hirsh in his recent article "The Post al-Qaida Era. " Really? Well, if the war is over, I must have missed the peace treaty signing ceremony. I also haven't noticed a decline in incendiary rhetoric, or the disarmament -- or at least laying down of arms -- that usually accompanies the end of war. Does this mean we can do away with full-body scanners and TSA pat-downs?

Signs of movement toward renewed cooperation between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have Israeli officials on edge. Israel considers Hamas a terrorist organization committed to its destruction and has shunned negotiations. In the wake of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' efforts last fall to sidestep negotiations with Israel and seek United Nations recognition of a Palestinian state, it is easy to see this as another ominous sign for the prospects for peace. But there is another possibility at work.

President Barack Obama is reported to have said to his advisors last week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would never make the concessions necessary for a peace accord. Well, we in the peace movement say, "duhhh. " If the president really understands this, it is time for him to go over the heads of the leadership in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza and directly to the Israeli and Palestinian people, with a full-blown peace accord that would show what the U.S. could enthusiastically support.

As the wave of revolution continues to sweep through the Arab world, the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad could be its next victim. While many in the United States and Israel appear hesitant to support Syria's anti-regime forces - basing their thinking on the old maxim that the devil you know is better than the one you don't - this viewpoint overlooks the major benefits both for the United States and for Israel if the Assad regime is ousted....

DEAR CAL -- Our son is an 18-year-old senior in high school. He's had a tough life. Both of his biological parents are dead, but since coming to us as a foster child when he was 16, he has completely turned around his life. Sports, particularly football, have played a significant role in his transformation. His football team is having a losing season, and the offensive coordinator's coaching style appears to be one of criticism, belittling and intimidation. At a recent practice, our son and the coach had a verbal altercation and our son cursed the coach.

WASHINGTON - You know when I really get mad? It's when my wife tells me I'm not helping around the house - and I have not been helping around the house. There is nothing more enraging than someone exposing your faults - and being right. What is true at home is true in diplomacy. I was reminded of that watching the enraged, hysterical reaction of Israel's ruling Likud Party to the virtual peace treaty - known as the Geneva Accord - that was hammered out by Yossi Beilin, the former Israeli justice minister, and Yasser Abed Rabbo, the former Palestinian information minister.
