U. S. Concerned by
PLO Contradictions
A continuing discrepancy in
position statements by Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
leader Yasir Arafat and other
Palestinian leaders is a con-
cern to Bush administration
officials and some members of
The inconsistencies in re-
marks, including whether mili-
tary aggression and attacks
against Israel should be contin-
ued, were a key topic when
U.S. Secretary of State James
Baker recently met with Rob-
ert H. Pelletreau Jr., the U.S.
MARRAKECH, Morocco British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher greets Serge Berdugo, president of the Jewish com-
munity of Morocco, during her recent 2U-hour official visit here
with King Hassan II. During a private meeting, the two discussed
the history and role of the Moroccan Jewish community, its
strong ties of affection and loyalty to the royal family of Morocco
and the attitude of Israel's large Moroccan Jewish community
toward resolution of the Palestinian issue.
Secretary Baker:
Balance of
Power Shifting
in Mideast
The recent Soviet sale of 10 to
15 Sukhoi-24 D bombers to
Libya has altered the military
balance in the Middle East,
Secretary of State James
Baker said.
He added that he has "no
reason to disagree" with the
argument that the sale of the
planes, with a 1,610-mile
radius, threatens Israel.
Baker was replying to ques-
tions asked by Sen. Jesse
Helms (R-N.C.), during testi-
mony before the Senate Fore-
ign Relations Committee.
Baker said the sale "says
that when (the Soviets) talk
about wanting to be involved
in the Middle East peace pro-
cess, they are doing a good job
of talking but not in support-
ing that talk with their deeds.
"If they really wanted to be
helpful in the Middle East,
they would not be so suppor-
tive of radical regimes like
Libya generally," he said.
Baker said the United States
would also welcome Soviet res-
toration of full diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel, as well as the
use of its influence with Syria
to end the violence in Lebanon
as well as activities of radical
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion factions based in Syria.
The situation in Lebanon is
"very, very intractable,"
Baker said, but he called the
Arab-Israeli conflict the most
intractable foreign policy dis-
The State Department sin-
gled out Syria when it called
for an end to the "indiscrimin-
ate shelling" in Beirut. Baker
said this was only the second
time that the United States
has criticized Syria as the chief
foreign force instigating vio-
lence in Lebanon.
"The problem of determin-
ing who is the aggressor in this
particular situation is extraor-
dinarily difficult," he said.
"You nave Arabs fighting
Arabs and you have Christians

At the hearings, Helms
ordered aides to distribute pic-
tures of the Sukhoi-24 D bomb-
ers to committee members and
He also arranged to have
large posters displayed of the
plane, a Middle East regional
map with a circle denoting the
plane's radius and the alleged
Libyan poison gas Dlant.
The State Department, on
April 5, had refused at first to
confirm or deny the Soviet
bomber sale. The next day,
however, deputy department
spokesman Richard Boucher
said that a Soviet foreign minis-
try spokesman had confirmed
the sale.
... and Arafat's
French Connection
PARIS (JTA) President Francois Mitterrand asked Yasir
Arafat some blunt questions and told him to bring the Palestine
Liberation Organization's 1964 charter into line with his
professed desire for peace with Israel.
The charter calls for the destruction of Israel by armed
The French president and the PLO chairman met for 90
minutes at the Elysee Palace shortly after Arafat arrived for a
two-day visit, at the invitation of the government.
It was Arafat's first meeting with the chief of state of a major
Western nation. Thousands of French Jews took part in angry
protests, and more mass demonstrations are planned.
An official statement, read by palace spokesman Hubert
Vedrine, said the president asked Arafat "to clear up" the
contradiction between the language of the charter and his own
proclamation in Geneva last December recognizing Israel's right
to exist.
Arafat later told French television that the charter, known
formally as the Palestine National Covenant, is null and void.
"As for the charter, I believe there's an expression in French,
'C'est caduque, '(It's null and void)" Arafat was quoted as saying.
Mitterrand also probed PLO intentions in significant detail.
According to the spokesman, he wanted to know from Arafat
how the PLO interprets the Palestinians' "right of return,"
what territorial boundaries the PLO envisages for a Palestinian
state and what compensation it would demand for Arab property
inside Israel.
Arafat has rarely if ever been pinned down on such items,
especially by a leading world statesman.
Mitterrand apparently was honoring a pledge he made to
CRIF, the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions,
to use his meeting with Arafat to clarify the PLO's position on a
number of matters crucial to Israel's security.
The Elysee Palace gave no indication what, if any, reply on
these points was given by the PLO chief.

gress twice a year on PLO
statements and activities as
"just another onerous report-
ing requirement imposed on us
by Congress."
Arab League Wants
Office Reopened
Secretary of State James
Baker was urged by the Arab
League to reopen the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization's
Washington office.
"I am under the impression
that he does not oppose re-
opening it, but he wants to
have the proper timing,"
Clovis Maksoud, the Arab
League's permanent represen-
tative to the United Nations,
told reporters afer a 35-minute
meeting with Baker at the
State Department.
But a State Department
source said, "I do not believe
that language was used."
Baker "explained that our
position has not changed," the
source said.
On Sept. 15, 1987, the
United States ordered the
PLO to close its Washington
office by Dec. 1 of that year, a
decision upheld by the U.S.
District Court for the District
of Columbia.
George Shultz, who was
secretary of state at the time,
said that the action was "being
taken to demonstrate United
States concern over terrorism
committed and supported by
organizations and individuals
affiliated with the PLO."
Since then, however, PLO

American Tourists
In Israel Profiled
JERUSALEM (JTA) Statistics recently published by
the Ministry of Tourism revealed that three-quarters of the
Americans who come to Israel as tourists are Jewish.
A profile of American tourists who come to Israel shows
that 51 percent come alone, 34 percent arrive as couples
and 15 percent come in families of three or more.
Two-thirds of them make their own travel arrangements
rather than join an inclusive tour.
Some of the findings include:
74 percent of the American tourists are Jewish.
36 percent come in inclusive package tours.
41 percent make their decisions six months or more
before their trip.
99 percent arrive on scheduled flights, only one percent
on charters.
42 percent give the desire to visit relatives or friends as
one of their reasons for traveling.
61 percent stay in hotels. Average expenditure is
$1,300, or $62 per day.
90 percent of respondents to a ministry survey say they
have had a good or very good time.
No Beita
Israeli army blocked West
Bank settlers from entering
Beita village, where they
planned to hold a "first anni-
versary memorial hike" for an
Israeli girl killed there a year
Israel Defense Force troops
allowed about 150 youthful
West Bank settlers and right-
wing supporters to walk in the
vicinity of the Arab village, but
not to enter it, fearing a repeat
of last year's incident.
On April 6,1988,15-year-old
Tirza Porat was killed in the
confrontation that ensued
after a group of Israeli teen-
age hikers on a Passover out-
ing entered the Arab village,
which lies south of Nablus.
News reports first indicated
that she had been killed by
village residents. But an army
report later revealed that the
bullet that killed her came
from the gun of an Israeli
chaperon escorting the hikers.

Israel's Labor Practices
For months, the general media was rife with
reports of alleged non-compliance by Israel in
regard to its labor practices. In the balance
was Israel's standing to continue receiving
special trade privileges under the GSP
Generalized System of Preferences.
The jury is in that Israel is, indeed, in
compliance. It should be no surprise, there-
fore, that the accuser was the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee-ADC. As a
petitioner charging violations of workers'
rights, the ADC attempted to rob Israel of its
ability to export goods to the United States
The salacious accusations were investigated
thoroughly; and the charges dismissed.
There were political ramifications in addi-
tion to those associated with encouraging
trade on the international market. Recogniz-
ing the administered territories as part of
Israel would have jeopardized the U.S. long-
standing policy toward the region. The U.S.
wisely would not be pushed into such a
compromising position.
Instead, the United States looked at the
facts pertaining to this special trade status
and reaffirmed that the State of Israel was
appropriately entitled to its GSP standing, an
entitlement we applaud.
Is This Justice?
If there were ever any question as to the
innate nature of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, one need only look to its admin-
istration of "justice" against those who seek a
resolution to the intifada or Arab uprising.
These days, justice comes with two shots to
the head in broad daylight in the streets of the
administered territories.
Justice is swift and final.
It is also deadly and mirrors incredibly PLO
terrorist activities.

Ordeal by Change
late folk-philosopher Eric Hof-
fer once called it "ordeal by
He was describing the bat-
tering that America was un-
dergoing in the wake of the
Vietnam War. While he was
opposed to the war, he felt that
the self-flagellation America
was inflicting on itself was
beginning to erode widespread
belief in American democracy,
its liberties and its role in the
In many ways, the State of
Israel and its people have been
undergoing an analogous "or-
deal by change." Israel has
been experiencing an extraor-
dinary battering externally as
a result of the intifada, the
Palestinian uprising, and
internally in the wake of the
political and religious upheav-
While the debate over the
wisdom of Israel's political pol-
icies toward peace negotia-
tions with the Palestinians and
the "Who Is a Jew" issue are
necessary and essential, it is
vital that we not lose sight of
the core reality of what Israel
represents in the context of
4,000 years of Jewish history.
Reviewing the desperate
conditions of Jewry prior to
the creation of Israel, Dr. Leo
Pinsker, the Jewish doctor of
Odessa, wrote in his classic,
"Auto-Emancipation," that
because of their statelessness
and lack of power over their
lives, "the world beheld the
Jewish people as the eerie fig-
ure of a corpse wandering
among the living."
This "ghost-phenomenon of
a wandering corpse" among
the nations inspired a "ghost
terror, Judeophobia."
With all its real problems,
Israel's existence as a sover-
eign state has ended that ghost
condition of the Jewish Dias-
pora. It is the one sure haven
whose gates are open to any
Jew anywhere who suffers or
who is threatened.
Israel's existence has ended
the role of Jews as victims of
history and has invested the
whole of Jewry with the power
of mastery over our fate and
Yom Ha'atzmaut is an
important time to restore that
historic perspective.
Hate Crimes Deterrent
Last week, the State of Florida took its first
step toward protecting its citizenry from the
threat of hate crimes.
Using model legislation as drafted by the
B'nai B'rith's Anti-Defamation League, two
companion bills passed a subcommittee of the
Florida House of Representatives Criminal
Justice Committee. (There are, as well, two
Senate bills which track the House versions.)
Within the next week or so, it is expected
that the bills will be withdrawn from pro-
forma consideration by the Appropriations
Committee and then, will be discussed on the
floor of the House and the Senate at a time yet
to be determined.
The bills, if passed into law, will accomplish
double goals. The Hate Crimes Reporting Act
will offer the State the ability to track, collect
and disseminate hate crimes information
which will then aid its law enforcement agen-
cies in preventative measures.
The companion bill would offer potential
victims of hate crimes greater protection by
increased deterrents; it offers prosecutors
greater latitude in dealing with perpetrators
of such heinous acts; and, it offers a victim
appropriate relief and legal recourse.
It is a measure of the maturity of this State
that such steps are in the process of being
enacted. It is a measure of the commitment to
creating a hate-free environment for all its
citizens that the regional office of the Anti-
Defamation League is shepherding the bills
through the legislature.

U.S. Aid to Palestinians...
Critics of American Middle
East policy frequently
complain about the lack of sup-
port for the Palestinians. In
fact, the United States has
long been the principal finan-
cial supporter of the Palestin-
ian refugees, but, in contrast
to the gratitude expressed by
Israelis, we receive oppro-
brium from Palestinians.
In 1948, the United Nations
Relief and Works Agency
(UNRWA) was established to
provide assistance to Palestini-
ans who became refugees fol-
lowing the first Arab-Israeli
war. UNRWA was meant to be
a temporary agency since the
Palestinians, like every other
refugee population, were ex-
pected to be resettled. The
United Nations passed a reso-
lution calling for the repatria-
tion and resettlement of the
refugees, but also stipulated
that refugees wishing to re-
turn to their homes be willing
"to live at peace with their
The Arab states refused to
negotiate peace until the refu-
gees were repatriated. They
also refused (except for Jor-
dan) to resettle them, prefer-
ring instead to confine them to
camps where they could re-
main a symbol of the Arab-
Israeli conflict and where
hatred for Israel would fer-
ment. Most have remained in
camps and on UNRWA relief
rolls ever since.

lion Palestinians on the rolls
and over 700,000 in camps.
After the 1967 war, Israel
acquired responsibility for
those in the Gaza Strip and
West Bank and tried to im-
prove their living conditions.
For example, Israel has want-
ed to move refugees into per-
manent housing. These efforts
have been impeded, however,
by the Arab states, which have
secured a UN resolution each
year since 1971 demanding
that Israel desist from remov-
ing Palestinians from the
The United States, mean-
while, has contributed more
than $1 billion to UNRWA,
nearly half the total given by
all nations. During the same
period, the Soviet Union did
not contribute a single ruble
and the Arab states combined
donated less than 10 percent of
the total UNRWA budget to
aid their brethren.
Last year, the United States
appropriated $67 million for
UNRWA while the Arab states
donated a little more than $4
million. More than half of that
was given by the Saudis whose
largesse was exceeded by 11

youngest rabbi ever appointed in the Netherlands.
The native Dutchman and Lubavitcher Hasid assumed the

NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli
Deputy Foreign Minister Bin-
yamin Netanyahu presented a
vision of an Israel poised on
the verge of both greatness
and destruction, whose poten-
tial for growth or annihilation
is so awesome that the descrip-
tion "apocalyptic" does not
seem inappropriate.
In a three-pronged speech
here to the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, Netanyahu
suggested first that Israel is
about to be infused with the
greatest influx of immigrants
from the Soviet Union ever
and that they might very well
come through a free doorway,
just as from the West.
Then, acknowledging
Israel's dire financial straits,
which could scarcely support
the vast needs of these new
immigrants, the Likud official
said that Israel is about to
revolutionize its economy. He
exhorted his audience to "buy,
Completing this augury,
Netanyahu then presented a
portrait of an Israel now riding
a very thin line between con-
tinuation and total annihila-
tion. Its fate, he seemed to
imply, hangs on the legitimacy
the world gives the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Netanyahu cited an address
given in Arabic by Farouk
Kaddoumi, the PLO's so-called
"foreign minister," who said
that although the PLO's meth-
ods have changed, the West
Bank and Gaza are still the
launching pads to liberate
Haifa and Jaffa.
"Jewish history is going to
be determined right now,"
Netanyahu said, his voice

In testimony before a House
panel last month, Rep. Wayne
Owens (D-UT) called for an in-
crease in American support for
UNRWA. Rep. Larry Smith
(D-FL) countered that resi-
dents of refugee camps are
foreign nationals; therefore,
the burden of aid should not
only be on the United States,
but should be shared by other
Middle Eastern countries.
Americans have been gener-
ous toward the Palestinians.
Perhaps it is too much to
expect gratitude from them. It
is not asking too much, how-
ever, to demand that the Arab
states do more to help them by
increasing their contributions
to the UNRWA, nor is it un-
reasonable to call on the Pales-
tinians and their rhetorical
supporters to take the one step
that could remove them from
the refugee rolls enter nego-
tiations for peace with Israel.
Mitchell G. Bard is editor of Near
East Report, from which this article is
Israel at Apocalypse'9
becoming more intense.
He drew pointed comparison
Binyamin Netanyahu
between the Israel of today,
which is being asked to give up
its administered territories,
and the Czechoslovakia of
1938, which was entreated by
Adolf Hitler to deliver up the
Sudetenland as "a last terri-
torial claim."
He recalled that The Times
of London editorialized at the
time that "Czechoslovakia
must choose now which way it
must go on ruling an alien
people." The paper urged the
Czech government to "choose
peace," he said, drawing an
analogy to words often used by
Israel's critics.
"Those who say that a Pales-
tinian state will lead to peace
are fatal. It's a prescription for
catastrophic war, not just reg-
ular war," he said.
Instead of choosing annihila-
tion, Israel has offered the
Palestinians "another idea,"
said Netanyahu. "You can
have maximum control of your
daily life and we (will) be in
charge of security," he said,
giving a broad outline of Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
plan for Palestinian autonomy.

Youth Center
at Dachau
BONN (JTA) West Ger-
many's extreme right-wing
Republican Party, seen by
many here as a neo-Nazi
group, is trying to block plans
to open an educational center
for youth at the site of the
Dachau concentration camp.
The party's leader, however,
denied allegations that the
Republicans are seeking to
remove the Holocaust memo-
rial already in place at the site.
Republican leader Franz
Schoenhuber spoke in Munich
with reporters after Gernoit
Jellin, the Republican chair-
man in the town of Dachau,
told a crowded meeting that
the town was tired of being
linked with the adjacent camp.
Jellin's statements were
enthusiastically applauded by
supporters and touched off
rumors that the party is about
to urge a closure of the memo-
rial site.
Jellin is a police officer who
has been presented as a typical
example of the broad support
the Republicans allegedly
enjoy among men and women
in uniform.
Schoenhuber vowed recently
to disclose the names of sev-
eral generals in active service
who support the party.
He said that the planned
youth center is irrelevant and
could only harm the cause of
fighting extremism and
"We just think enough is
enough," he said. But he den-
ied that the Republicans would
call for the closure of the pre-
sent memorial.

man of the board of Bank

From 1976, when he joined
Bank Leumi, until 1980, Fried-

dent of BLTNY. During that
period, the bank experienced
its greatest expansion, includ-
ing the acquisition and build-
ing of 19 additional branches
throughout the New York
metropolitan area.
Returning to Israel, Fried-
mann became head of Bank
Leumi's principal office in Tel
Aviv, was then appointed head
of the bank's international
division. Subsequently, he was
general manager and chief
executive officer of the Union

Prior to joining Bank Leumi,

Police Minister Haim Bar-Lev
said he would investigate poss-
ible illegalities connected with

The FPA responded to the
government saying that re-
porters had accepted the cards
for their own safety. Israeli
police posing as journalists and
using counterfeit press creden-
tials in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip had put them in
danger, the association said.

Support for Israel at Record High
American support for Israel
in the latest Washington Post/
ABC News poll reached an
all-time high of 69 percent.
This is even higher than the
level of support in the heady
days following the Six-Day
War when everyone seemed to
love Israel (the figure then was
56 percent). This finding
demonstrates once again to
Israel's critics, who pounce on
any downturn in public opinion
for evidence that Americans
are turning against Israel, that
such declines are invariably
temporary responses to nega-
tive events. It also shows that
American support for Israel
has not eroded as a result of
the intifada.
This result is more meaning-
ful than most because it repre-
sents the most consistently
measured index of public atti-
tudes toward the Middle East.
Given the more than 20 years
that the question has been
asked, it is safe to say that it
provides a reliable picture of
the long-term depth of support
Israel enjoys among Ameri-
What is also striking about
the data is how little support
exists for the Arab states (16
percent). Despite all the
media-hype about public atti-
"In the Middle East situation, are your sympathies
more with Israel or with the Arab Nations?"

tSlsr I52S
tudes shifting toward the
Arabs in general and the
Palestinians in particular,
Israel continues to enjoy a
more than 4-to-l advantage
over the Arab states in the
hearts of Americans. When
asked if they sympathize more
with Israel or die Palestinians,
Israel was favored by 63 per-
cent of the respondents, nearly
three times the figure for the
Two other questions indicate
that support for Israel remains
solid. One asked for impres-
sions of varoius countries 60
percent responded they had a
favorable opinion of Israel.
The second asked if Israel is a
reliable ally 51 percent said
yes. When asked if the United
States should strengthen its
ties with Israel, 89 percent
said they should be strength-
ened or kept the same (24
percent said strengthened),
the same figure as in January
1987, before the beginning of
the intifada.
On the question of foreign
aid, 66 percent said the level of
assistance to Israel should
remain the same. A majority
favored the current level even
when the question wording
was changed so that people
were informed that Israel
receives more aid $3 billion
than any other country.
Typically, when questions
include the cost of programs,
support declines.
Americans believe that prob-
lems can be solved through
dialogue, so it is no surprise
that a large majority believe
Israel should talk to the PLO.
As has been the case in every
poll on the subject, however,
the response is contradicted by
the public's opinion of the
PLO. In this case, 81 percent
view the PLO unfavorably. In
addition, more than half
believe the Palestinians are
"to blame for the recent vio-
lence on the West Bank."
Perhaps the most revealing
finding in the survey was that
only eight percent of the
respondents are "very famil-
iar with the conflict between
Israel and the Palestinians;
nearly half are unfamiliar.
Despite the media barrage and
the underlying assumption of
public interest, most
Americans are not particularly
interested or informed about
Middle East issues. It is,
nevertheless, evident that the
overwhelming majority sup-
port Israel and appreciate
U.S.-Israel ties. For the
"Chicken Littles" who say
Americans support for Israel
is eroding, the lastest finding
confirms yet again that the sky
remains overhead.
Mitchell Bard it editor of Near Eati
Report, from which this article it
U.S. Supports Elections;
Arabs Reject Plan
The United States tried to put
the best face on a statement
released by 80 Palestinian
leaders rejecting Israel's call
for elections in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
"The fact that Palestinians
inside and outside of the West
Bank and Gaza are debating
and discussing the election
idea is a positive and healthy
sign," State Department spo-
keswoman Margaret Tutwiler
"We are only at the begin-
ning of a process," Tutwiler
said. In particular, "the details
of an elections proposal need
to be elaborated."
Tutwiler was commenting
on reports of an underground
leaflet circulating in the terri-
tories and signed by leading
Palestinian academics, busi-
ness leaders, journalists, doc-
tors and engineers.
The document rejects Yitz-
hak Shamir's call for Palestin-
ian elections, which the Israeli
prime minister has said would
allow Palestinians to choose
representatives to negotiate
an interim period of autonomy
with Israel.
Instead, the leaflet insists
that Israel begin negotiations
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization and take part in
an international Middle East
peace conference, both of
which the government adam-
antly opposes.
"This isolated occurrence of
elections does not illustrate
how it will lead to the end of
the occupation and to Palestin-
ian national independence,"
says the document, according
to a copy excerpted in The
Washington Post.
The document also calls for a
UN-supervised withdrawal of
Israeli forces from the terri-
tories before any election
could take place, the Post said.

Arab League Wants

leader Yasir Arafat has
renounced terrorism and rec-
ognized Israel's right to exist.
Baker said that to reopen
the office is "within the discre-
tion of the president, who has
to certify that the PLO is not a
terrorist organization," Mak-
soud said.
"We believe that the fact
that the dialogue has been
initiated" between the United
States and the PLO means the
decision should be rescinded as
a way to "enhance" the dia-
logue, he added.
Maksoud also announced
that Farouk Kaddoumi, the
PLO's political director, wants
to visit the United States
"sometime after the Ramadan
feast," which ends May 5.
But he said he did not ask
Baker about granting a visa to
allow the PLO official to enter

Arafat from coming to New
York to address the United
The meeting with Baker was
arranged at the request of the
Arab League nearly three
weeks ago, the State Depart-
ment source said. Accompany-
ing Maksoud at the meeting
were North Yemen's ambassa-
dor to the United States, Moh-
sin Alaini, and Kuwait's
ambassador, Shiekh Saud
Nasir al-Sabah.
The three-pronged agenda
consisted of the status of the
PLO's Washington office, the
Arab-Israeli conflict and the
situation in Lebanon.
On the fate of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, the Arab
League delegation informed
Baker that it considers Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's proposal for elections in
the territories "part of a cha-
rade," Maksoud said.
The elections "are intended
to undermine the mandate and
the representative character
of the PLO," he added.
He said he told Baker the
Shamir plan "was intended to
frustrate the international out-
rage concerning the practices
of Israel in the occupied terri-
Baker said he viewed elec-
tions "as part of a comprehen-
sive process and not an end in
themselves," according to
The State Department
source said Baker "reiterated
his belief that the idea has
merit" and that "those com-
mitted to peace should not
dismiss it."
Baker asked Maksoud about
the PLO's application for full
status in the World Health
Organization and other spe-
cialized U.N. agencies.
Said Maksoud, "We consider
this to be a right of the Pales-
tinians, and we are going to
proceed with these discussions
within the United Nations."

U. S. Supports Elections
Continued from Page 7
The document took a much
more rejectionist tone than a
statement made earlier in the
week by Salah Khalaf, a de-
puty to PLO leader Yasir Ara-
fat, that the PLO would accept
elections if they were made
part of an agreement for an
Israeli withdrawal from the
Khalaf, also known as Abu
Iyad, said this was agreed
upon during a three-day meet-
ing in Tunis of all PLO fac-
"We can discuss elections as
one stage in a series of defined
stages, as long as it is clear
that the final settlement is
self-determination and Israeli
withdrawal from all occupied
territory under (UN Security
Council) Resolution 242," Kha-
laf said.
But Khalaf said that if the
elections would lead only to
autonomy "then we reject
autonomy, and we have reject-
ed it in the past."
Palestinians consider
"autonomy" a barely disguised
continuance of the status quo
in the territories, while they
use "self-determinaticn" as a
synonym for a Palestinian
state. Israel rejects a Palestin-
ian state out-of-hand.
In an apparent response to
Khalaf s remarks, the United
States said that it was
"encouraged" by what it cal-
led "the willingness of Israelis,
Palestinians and others in the
area to explore the concept of
elections as part of a broader
political process."
But that was before the
rejection statement by 80
Palestinian leaders was re-
ported. And meanwhile, Kha-
laf was amending his remarks.
He was quoted as saying, "We
cannot accept elections in the
shadow of occupation and
without international supervi-
sion after the withdrawal of
Israeli forces."
Even in the face of those
comments and the signed leaf-
let, U.S. officials are not vet
prepared to let go of the elec-
tion idea.
