  Palestine Liberation Organization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The PLO's Rejection Front opposed Arafat's growing calls for diplomacy from the mid-1970s, perhaps best symbolized by his support for a UN Security Council resolution proposed in 1976 calling for a two-state settlement on the pre-1967 borders and his Ten Points Program, which was denounced by the Rejection Front (and vetoed by the United States).
A significant minority within the PLO at this time still held the view that a future Palestinian state would include the territory of Jordan, an area that was part of Palestine administered by the United Kingdom from 1917 till 1922.
Numerous leaders within the PLO and the PA, including Yasser Arafat himself, have declared that the State of Israel has a permanent right to exist, and that the peace treaty with Israel is genuine, though members of the PLO have claimed responsibility for a number of attacks against Israelis since the Oslo Accords.

 PLO: Study in Frustration, June 13, 1983
As these observers see it, what has been taking place has its roots in the growing disillusionment within the PLO with the idea that it is possible for the Palestinians to achieve self-determination-that is, get a country of their own-through diplomatic negotiation rather than through war.
When PLO officials suggested to the U.S. in 1974 that they would like to talk about a deal on the West Bank, they were told to do their talking through Jordan.

 Sanctuary and Survival (chapter 7): Maintaining Sanctuary
Those who argued that the PLO could avoid being drawn into Lebanese issues-a view encapsulated in Fateh's slogan of "non-interference" in the internal affairs of Arab regimes-had underestimated the degree to which the Palestinian presence and struggle was, in and of itself, a Lebanese issue.
If the PLO leadership understood the importance of Lebanon-and it is clear from their intense effort to preserve the PLO's position there that they certainly did-that understanding and the needs stemming from it were never clearly articulated to Palestinian cadres or public.
The PLO was constantly (and deliberately) distracted by the ongoing confrontation with Israel in the south.

 ABCs of PLO, May 31, 1982
A In other words, the PLO is the vehicle through which the Palestinians under occupation, and those in the diaspora, are asserting their claim to have a state of their own, just as the Jews have.
Not only is the PLO regarded officially by all Arab countries as the only legal representative of the Palestinians, but this is also the opinion of the Palestinian "man -in -the -street."

This is important: for the past eight years, the PLO has made it as clear as it possibly could that it is ready to settle for an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza.

The PLO has since re-established its operations in Lebanon; even today, James Adams comments, it remains "a major economic influence in the country-or what's left of it." But Lebanon's economy has fallen apart since 1982, so revenues from there are a fraction of what they were earlier.

 MISPERCEPTIONS AND PERFECT UNDERSTANDING: THE UNITED STATES AND THE PLO*
The PLO was pushed toward tough decisions and irreversible choices as West Bank/Gaza Palestinians demanded action, Arab rulers reduced support for the PLO and involvement in the conflict, the USSR collapsed, U.S. power grew, and Israel became stronger and more deeply entrenched in the territories.
While the PLO now expected that the United States would meet its demands, the United States saw this step as just the start of a negotiating process in which the PLO would have to prove its moderation and convince Israel that a solution with Arafat was possible.
PLO leaders now began complaining, "The Americans haven't done anything for us" and Washington was merely "stalling while waiting for the intifada to die." Occasional U.S.-PLO meetings in Tunis between U.S. Ambassador Robert Pelletreau and a PLO delegation, however, were far less important than the efforts being made in Washington.

In December 1994, the PLO took $1-million from donations intended for humanitarian purposes and gave to the PLO Martyrs Fund, based in Amman.

The Munich attack wasn't the only terrorist act by Black September, a group named after PLO's military defeat at the hands of King Hussein (whose grandfather was killed by the al-Husseini family) when the PLO tried to establish a state within a state in Jordan, only the most dramatic one.
In addition, from day one, the PLO transferred large sums of money to a group that is supposedly completely financed by Iran, a lot of arms and it is sharing intelligence information with Hezbollah (as they do with Hamas).
The whole world saw, but ignored the PLO trying to portray itself as diplomatic organization that wants to solve a conflict, while in actuality it was running the show.

 Self-destructive PLO still untrustworthy
While the PLO was primarily interested in using Lebanon as a staging area for missile and terrorist attacks against Israel, other groups fought for such mundane goals as fundamentalist Islamic governments and beating the PLO in the competition for the highly coveted "Most Dangerous Faction in Lebanon" prize.
The PLO, its goal of a Palestinian homeland within Israel not achieved, has ignored the Lebanese government, and refuses to demobilize, even if that means that thousands more Lebanese will lose their lives.
By remaining armed and autonomous, the PLO could conceivably dominate the Lebanese military and government, bending the national agenda towards the goals of an unscrupulous foreign terrorist organization.
