Talking With The PLO...
Most Organizations
Support Move
By
ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) With
few exceptions, major Ameri-
can Jewish groups said they
understood U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz's decision
to allow "substantive talks"
between representatives of the
United States and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith said the
United States is "living up to
its commitments." Both the
American Jewish Congress
and the American Jewish
Committee said Shultz acted
"correctly." The Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions called the decision a "vic-
tory" for Shultz.
But while agreeing that the
PLO seemed to have accepted
the U.S. government's condi-
tions for dialogue, nearly all
SHULTZ FIELDS QUESTIONS. At a State Department
news conference following President Reagan's declaration
that he had authorized the State Department to enter into a
"substantive dialogue" with the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO), Secretary of State Georae Shultz fields
reporters' questions. "Our object is not a dialogue," said
Shultz, "our object is peace." (APfWide World Photo)
the groups released state-
ments demanding that PLO
leader Yasir Arafat be made to
match his "magic words" with
deeds.
"Yasir Arafat has now met
the technical requirements for
a dialogue with the United
States, said Warren Eisen-
berg, director of the Interna-
tional Council of B'nai B'rith.
But, he added, "the PLO has
to show through deeds that it
has finally come to terms with
Israel's existence and intends
to pursue the path of peace
and eschew violence."
Morris Abram, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations, said at a news
conference that Secretary of
State George Shultz believed
"honestly" that Arafat had
met U.S. demands for dia-
logue, as outlined in a 1975
U.S. Memorandum of Agree-
ment with Israel.
But Abram implied that the
United States should ask even
more of the PLO, and he went
so far as to spell out one of
those deeds.
In a statement drafted at a
meeting with representatives
of the 46 Conference of Presi-
dents constituent organiza-
tions, Abram said that the
PLO should be made to repudi-
ate its National Covenant.
"There can be no progress
toward peace in the Middle
East if the PLO insists on
adhering to the covenant its

AJCongress said the United

ances that PLO terrorism has
ended, that Arafat accept Res-
olution 242 unencumbered by
any other UN resolutions and
that Arafat say to the Arab
world what he has been saying
in the Western press.

WASHINGTON (JTA) If
future acts of terrorism are
traceable to the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, the
United States will expect
those involved to be expelled
from the PLO, the State
Department's top specialist on
the Middle East said.
In such a scenario, the
United States "will expect the
PLO leadership to disassociate
itself from the terrorist act
and to take disciplinary action,
"including expelling those
involved from the organiza-
tion," said Richard Murphy,
assistant secre iary of state for
Near Eastern and South Asian
affairs. He spoke on ABC-TV's
"This Week with David Brink-
ley" program.
President-elect George Bush
reiterated that position when
he told a news conference that
opening a dialogue with the
PLO does not mean the United
States is softening its opposi-
tion to terrorism.
"I don't care whether it
comes from a faction of the left
No Tolerance for Terrorism
or from the center or right or
wherever. I don't think that
we should indicate any willing-
ness to be tolerant of terror-
ism from the PLO," Bush said.
But it appears that the
United States will not hold the
PLO accountable for continued
violence in the Israeli-admini-
stered territories, as it wUl in
other parts of the world.
Another top State Department
policymaker drew a distinction
Between acts of terrorism and
the year-old Palestinian up-
rising in the territories.
"The intifada when it
emerged was not a byproduct-
of a PLO decision; it reflected
a reaction to prolonged occu-
pation. So the reaction of peo-
ple to occupation is not going
to cease immediately,'
Michael Armacost, under-
secretary of state for political
affairs, said on CBS-TV's
"Face the Nation."
Also speaking on the CBS
Srogram was Israeli Foreign
[inister Shimon Peres, who
left the door open to talks with
PLO members who are not
"shooting or killing."
Peres said he is "ready to sit
with every Palestinian, no
matter what his biography
was, if he is not shooting and
killing, if he is ready to talk, if
he represents his people, and if
he seeks peace."
Asked about a possible next
step for Israel to take, follow-
ing the PLO's move to re-
cognize Israel, Peres said that
his country must first see that
Arafat's renunciation of ter-
rorism is sincere. "Let's wait a
month, a couple of months,
and see if this is really going to
happen," Peres suggested.
A key obstacle to Israel
believing Arafat is sincere may
be whether it considers the
PLO accountable for continued
Palestinian violence in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Peres said he includes
such violence as traceable to
Arafat "We see to include it,
because for .us, if a baby is
being killed*6r wounded by a
stone, what does it matter
what is the name?"
He presented a challenge to
the PLO on the West Bank. "If
the Palestinians would stop
violence right away, yester-
day, the whole feeling, the
whole emotions in Israel would
be entirely different."
Peres said he believes the
PLO has recently moderated
its position. "Until now the
PLO would never say the
expression which is called
'peace' or the expression
which is called 'Israel.' They
wanted Israel without a peace
or a peace without an Israel."
But, he added, "now the
question is: Is that a change in
the language or is that a
change in the position?"
In contrast to Peres, Likud
Knesset member Binyamin
Netanyahu, appearing on the
Brinkley show, seemed to
reject any PLO moderation
outright. "The PLO uses
declarations of peace as a tac-
tic of war," he said. He noted
that Winston Churchill, Great
Britain's prime minister dur-
ing World War II, "refused to
have any dealings with Hitler"

He also argued that the
opening of a U.S. dialogue
with the PLO has "made peace
much more difficult," by push-
ing away Palestinian Arabs
"who want to look for a real
negotiation, a real coexistence
with Israel."
Finally, on NBC-TV's "Meet
the Press," White House Chief
of Staff Kenneth Duberstein,
the first Jew to hold that post,
said the administration con-
sidered domestic fallout from
U.S. Jews when reaching its
decision to begin talks with the
PLO.
He attributed the minimal
amount of American Jewish
criticism of Secretary of State
Shultz's decision to "an awful
lot of confidence in Ronald
Reagan and George Shultz and
the very special commitment
that there is between this
government and the Israeli
government."

Viewpoint
A Forward Step
Responding to appeals both from President
Herzog and top representatives of world
Jewry, Prime Minister Shamir has formed a
coalition government in Israel.
Both the Likud and Labor party leaders had
to overcome major opposition internally to
achieve the new agreement. But the selection
of the top cabinet posts appears to be the most
representative alignment possible.
While Washington seemed to prefer the
Peres stance in favor of an international peace
conference, neither the Reagan-Bush Admin-
istration nor world Jewry is likely to protest
the final coalition.
There are those who have hastily concluded
that the new Israeli government is unable to
meet the challenges inherent in the PLO's new
political power.
A far better attitude is to give both Shamir's
coalition and President-Elect Bush time to set
their respective agendas. What has waited 40
years can wait a Few more weeks.
Reaction To The Inevitable
Would that we were wrong.
For 13 years now, the United States has
stood firm in a principled posture neither to
acknowledge, deal nor negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization. Former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and
later President Reagan laid the foundation
for any potential dialogue by demanding a
troika of prerequisites: that the PLO explicitly
recognize the State of Israel; that the PLO
renounce rather than simply denounce
terrorism in all its forms; and that the PLO
recognize UN Resolutions 242 and 338 as the
bases for a peace settlement.
Finally, a catch-22 scenario. In spite of the
U.S. insistence that PLO Chairman Yasir
Arafat was too much of a terrorist to be
eligible for a visa for entry purposes, Secret-
ary of State George Shultz was forced to open
talks with the PLO because its recalcitrant
titular head finally uttered the requisite
words.
The open sesame salvo may indeed be a
Pandora's box instead.
Like the mythical figure whose action
released into the world untold ills, the verbal
transaction of this week past will surely have
repercussions rippling on shores far from
landlocked Switzerland.
The first and foremost, from this paper's
perspective, is that Israel should be left
even by perception in a singularly lonely
and isolated political locale. While the United
States has reiterated time and again that its
overture was one of contact rather than
substantive negotiations, it appears on the
world screen that Israel is the last player to
make its entrance.
To add to the isolation, Israel is now being
portrayed as intransigent when in fact its
position is one of self-protection.
In an interview last week with The Jewish
Floridian, Meir Rosenne, former ambassador
from Israel to the United States, suggested

that instead of a three-prong test for the PLO,
as dictated by the U.S., Israel has its own
two-part litmus test to measure PLO sincer-
ity.
According to Rosenne, Israel needs to see a
change in the PLO covenant which pres-
ently calls for the destruction of a Zionist
presence rather than a vocal recognition.
And in lieu of a verbal renouncement of
terrorism, Israel demands a cessation of the
violence in the administered territories and
elsewhere.
Now, in a clever ploy of diminished expecta-
tions, Arab League spokesmen and other
apologists for the PLO are excusing before
the fact terrorist actions against Zionist
targets. By explaining that Arafat cannot
control radicals within the umbrella organiza-
tion, the chairman may not be held responsible
for any such behavior that does not conform to
the newly revised international persona for
the PLO.
Consequently, Arafat has nothing to lose
according to this thesis. He won't be damned if
he does or doesn't stop the terrorist activities
of his Palestinian cohorts.
That, of course, is not what the United
States is demanding. Ronald Reagan used
language exquisite in its strength: the
renouncement of terrorism must be "perva-
sive and permanent" for the U.S. not to pull
out of these fledgling contacts. We support
that stance, which simply put is that the PLO
must match its words with deeds.
Still to be determined is whether the inti-
fada described by one Arab League as
"ennobling" the cause of Palestinian self-
determination will cease. Still to be decided
is how Arafat will be dealt with by radical
forces within his Oriental world. If his "float-
ing constituency" actually sees him as leading
the vanguard out of the third world of realpol-
itick, then perhaps the moves last week will
have been prescient.
Until and unless all appropriate and demo-
cratic demands are met by those 'former'
terrorists, we cannot but hold out skeptical
hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Would that we were wrong.
No Swiss Ban on Neo-Nazis
GENEVA (JTA) The Swiss government decided there was
no need to implement a law barring Nazi activity in Switzerland,
because there was no actual threat.
Police Minister Arnol Kholer said after a debate on the subject
that the several neo-Nazi incidents that have occurred in recent
months represent no real danger to democracy.
He said the government would follow these "symptoms"
closely but would take no "exceptional action."
Tel Aviv U. Profs Elected
Four professors at Tel Aviv University were reelected to
the Knesset in the recent Israeli elections. All representing
different parties, the four are David Libsi, a law professor,
Labor Party; Yuval Ne'eman, a physics professor and
chairman of the Tahiya Party; Amnon Rubenstein, law
professor and chairman of the Center Party; and Avner
Shaki, a law professor, and chairman of the National
Religious Party.
U.S. Negative
On Settlements
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department reiter-
ated its longstanding position
that the establishment of addi-
tional Israeli settlements in
the administered territories is
"not helpful" in advancing
Middle East peace prospects.
Department spokeswoman
Phyllis Oakley would not com-
ment directly on a Likud-

Talking With ThePLO...

States now "urge the Palestin-
ians in the territories to call off
the uprising" and "pursue
high-level talks with Israel" to
coordinate strategy on the
peace process.
The Union of Orthodox Jew-
ish Congregations of America,
which said the PLO "may have
met America's technical condi-
tions," said another "neces-
sary action" would be that the
PLO turn over Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas to Italy. He is
wanted there in connection
with the terrorist attack on the
cruise ship Achille Lauro.
The warmest words of praise
for Shultz came from Rabbi
Alexander Schindler, presi-
dent of Reform Judaism's
UAHC.
Schindler said in a statement
that the American decision
"represents a victory for
Secretary Shultz and his insist-
ence that the PLO meet the
conditions first laid down by
Secretary (Henry) Kissinger in
Even the often har-lined
Zionist Organization of
Ameria refrained from
directly criticizing Shultz,
although it called his decision
"troublesome" and a "sober
ing reality."
Only two of the larger organ
izations issuing statements,
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion-American Section and the
Simon Wiesenthal Center,
were critical of the U.S. deci-
sion.
