Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, speaking out from the White House spotlight last night, condemned Israel's policy of "shooting and beating in a land that is holy to us all."

While President Reagan and his nearly 120 guests looked on, Mubarak departed from the usual niceties of White House dinner toasts. While he never mentioned Israel by name, his remarks were clearly directed at Israel. "No one in good conscience can condone" such a policy, he said, referring to the last seven weeks of violence against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. "No one who looks ahead can accept a continuation of occupation or oppression," he said.

Mubarak, who is beginning his second term as Egypt's president, described his proposed moratorium on all forms of violence in the occupied territories as "a preparatory step to comprehensive peace."

"There is no justification at all for the continuation of bloodshed and destruction," he continued. Quoting Benjamin Franklin, he said, "There never was a good war or a bad peace."

He called for "strenuous efforts" to stop the Iran-Iraq war, which is still raging in the Persian Gulf, saying, "The Mideast problems deserve special attention."

Mubarak's three-day stay, his first state visit to Washington, is seen as a test of his leadership in the Mideast, as Egypt has recently reestablished relations with 10 Arab countries after eight years of isolation that followed its peace treaty with Israel.

As the evening came to a close, President Reagan was asked about Mubarak's tough remarks. "I was very impressed," said Reagan. But when asked if he agreed with what Mubarak had said, the president replied diplomatically, "He and I agree on a great many things."

In his toast, President Reagan called his meetings with Mubarak earlier in the day "enjoyable and enlightening." He also praised Mubarak's guidance of Egypt toward resuming "its rightful place in the forefront of world leadership, particularly important at a time when the forces of fanaticism and blind hatred threaten the security of the Middle East."

Reagan also congratulated Mubarak on his second term.

Speaking as "a 76-year-old {who is} constitutionally prohibited from seeking another term," Reagan said it was a particularly happy occasion -- but "as a second-term veteran myself, Mr. President, let me tell you it doesn't get any easier."

At the mix-and-mingle session after dinner, Reagan confirmed he would give a television address Tuesday on the eve of the House vote on his $36.25 million aid package for the Nicaraguan rebels, but offered no prediction on the vote's outcome. Asked about the possibility of a package that included no military aid, he said, "That would be a terrible thing for us to do."

The president was also asked about his day's talks with Mubarak. "Don't pin me down," he responded. "It fits into the philosophy I believe in. As long as you're talking to one another instead of at one another, it's productive." And when Mubarak, who was wearing a dark business suit -- another departure from state dinner tradition -- was asked about the meetings with U.S. officials, he replied that he was "happy" and then directed questions to Reagan.

Eventually, as the guests moved into the East Room for entertainment by singer Patti Austin, the questions for Reagan turned to this Sunday's Super Bowl clash. Reagan said he is not going to Camp David this weekend, but he is planning to have some friends over to watch the Super Bowl. But the president tactfully refused to state his gridiron allegiance. "I can't say," he said, but he did reminisce about his radio days as a play-by-play sportscaster. "The big thing about radio was you were painting the picture. Now you can see," he said.

Among the guests was Vice President George Bush, making a surprise appearance since he wasn't listed on the official guest list. He said he came back to Washington yesterday for the Senate vote that undid the 1984 Supreme Court decision restricting civil rights laws. "I'm supposed to be in New Hampshire."

But last night in the Blue Room, he gave no indication that he was there to make news. "I harbor no hard feelings," he told reporters, referring to Monday's on-air clash with CBS' Dan Rather. "I'm here just to have a social evening. I've had 88 press conferences since February 15, 1987."

The Mubarak motorcade was 10 minutes late arriving at the White House, but the moment the Egyptian president arrived, the president and Nancy Reagan, who was wearing dark green velvet with long sleeves, appeared in the frigid night air on the north portico. The two couples faced the press for a photograph, and President Reagan was asked, "What do you think of President Mubarak's nine-point peace plan?"

Looking as absorbed in the answer as the press, Mubarak heard the president say, "We're going to be talking about that."

Inside the White House as the guests arrived for the dinner, Theodore Ellenoff, president of the influential American Jewish Committee, said he had recently sent a cable to the Israeli government protesting its policy of beating the Arab protesters. He said he had not received an answer. "Not yet."

Ellenoff said he supported Mubarak's proposed moratorium. "It would certainly contribute to the lessening of the tension," he said. "It would be worthwhile if there were a cooling-off period, with the U.S. and Egypt participating in the discussions."

When White House Chief of Staff Howard Baker was asked about the day's critical meetings, he responded that there was "nothing I'm willing to say."

The Reagans had invited 117 guests to the dinner, among them designer Geoffrey Beene, artist Roy Lichtenstein, singer Larry Gatlin, actors Mickey Rooney, Chuck Norris, Claire Trevor and Bubba Smith, pro football player Reggie Williams and surgeons Oliver Beahrs and Donald McIlrath. McIlrath, a professor of surgery at the Mayo Clinic, performed Nancy Reagan's recent mastectomy.

After a dinner of tenderloin of veal wellington, asparagus with hazelnut butter and lady-apple sorbet, Patti Austin entertained the guests. As the meal was being served, Maureen Reagan, cochairman of the Republican National Committee, discovered that Gatlin was a vegetarian and had a trout platter prepared for the singer.

Calling Austin's style "classy elegance," Reagan let the crowd in on a little incident from her afternoon rehearsal. A plaster acorn from the East Room ceiling had fallen to the floor near where she was standing, and last night Reagan handed it to her as a little token. "You hear of bringing down the house ..." he kidded.

Mickey Rooney acted the extrovert when he spotted photographers. "Can you get us in the same frame?" he asked, pulling his wife Jan closer to him. He said it had been "at least 18 years" since he had been at a White House event. "Mr. Kennedy was a very good friend of mine," Rooney said.

But he had also been a particular favorite of Franklin Roosevelt, who invited him eight or 10 times when he was president.

Despite his frequent visits during Democratic administrations, Rooney denied that he was a Democrat. "I'm an American," he said.

Insisting that he's "not politically endowed," Rooney nonetheless said he had just recently "tub-thumped" for Republican Jack Kemp.

"And somebody said to me that he was running third. I said that wouldn't be the first time Mr. Kemp has been third and long," Rooney laughed, alluding to the congressman's career in pro football.

Football was on another actor's mind, this one a bit taller and broader than Rooney -- Smith, a former Baltimore Colt. The Redskins will win in Sunday's Super Bowl, he predicted. "I feel that way because the match-up is good and the Redskins have the power to run -- at least I hope so," he said. Though he hasn't participated in any of Nancy Reagan's substance abuse campaigns, Smith said he thought his dinner invitation was "a reaction to my stopping the beer commercials."

Country singer Larry Gatlin called Nancy Reagan "my pal -- we've been together in the trenches." He said he's been working with her on her campaign against drug abuse and knows better than most what the hazards are because he's a reformed abuser himself.

"I've been sober by the grace of God for 1,100 days now," Gatlin said. "I know firsthand what drugs will do to you."

His rehabilitation, he said, took place in an Orange County, Calif., facility run by Dr. Joseph Pursch, who helped Betty Ford overcome her drug dependency.

Chuck Norris said his White House invitation came just five days ago as he started out a promotion tour for his new book, "The Secret of Inner Strength." He called California to have his tuxedo shipped, and he called the Caribbean, where his wife was overseeing a house they're having built. Both made it in time to go to the party.

Asked what he thought of this week's Bush-Rather fireworks, Norris said, "I think journalists often overstep their boundaries. Rather overdid it. Of course, I'm a Bush fan."
