 ADL Backgrounder - The Palestinian Commitment to Revise the Palestinian Covenant
Thus the conflicts among the Palestinian national forces are secondary, and should be ended for the sake of the basic conflict that exists between the forces of Zionism and of imperialism on the one hand, and the Palestinian Arab people on the other.
On this basis the Palestinian masses, regardless of whether they are residing in the national homeland or in diaspora (mahajir) constitute - both their organizations and the individuals - one national front working for the retrieval of Palestine and its liberation through armed struggle.
Accordingly the Palestinian people, desirous as they are of the friendship of all people, look to freedom-loving, and peace-loving states for support in order to restore their legitimate rights in Palestine, to re-establish peace and security in the country, and to enable its people to exercise national sovereignty and freedom.

 Rabah, PALESTINIAN REFUGEES AND DISPLACED & THE FINAL STATUS NEGOTIATIONS
The cancellation of the "National Palestinian Covenant" and the assignation of the national committee's law commission to reconstitute the covenant so that it conforms with the Oslo Agreements and the letters exchanged between Arafat and Rabin on 9 and 10 September 1993 enforce a one sided Palestinian recognition of Israel's right to exist.

The Palestinians example in Syria asserts that guarateeing civil and social rights maintains the national identity, protects it from the dangers of resettlement and cuts the road in front of the trend for discarding this identity, to avoid melting into the existing surroundings.

 Palestine Liberation Organization : PLO
At the Palestinian National Congress[?] in Cairo on February 3, 1969 Arafat was appointed PLO leader.
The Palestinians recognized Israel's right to exist within pre-1967 borders, (constituting less than 20% of the former British mandate of Palestine) with the understanding that they would be allowed to set up their own state led by Yassir Arafat in the West Bank and Gaza.
The vast majority of the Israeli public has recognized the right of the Palestinians for a state of their own; however some leaders from the right (including the former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) doubt whether a peaceful, coherent state can be founded by the PLO and call for significant re-organization, before any talk about independence.

The voiding of the covenant signified an adjustment of aims: the goal, from now on, would be to establish a state in the West Bank and Gaza, a mere fifth of Mandatory Palestine.
When the Palestinian leadership decided to abandon the progressive principles it had adopted in the late sixties, joining the American camp instead, a number of explanations were offered, the gist of which was as follows: The US rules the world today.
In this light, the Palestinian leaders no longer presented the conflict with Israel as a life-and-death struggle against the theft of land and resources, but rather as a psychological problem: changing the image one has of the other, building trust and cooperation, creating a culture of peace and friendship.

 Lamentations
The covenant basically says that as long as the nation of Israel is obedient to God, the nation will be blessed (Deuteronomy 28:1-14).
But the Palestinian Covenant only promises restoration once God changes the citizens' hearts so they can be obedient (Deuteronomy 30:2, 6, 17).
While believers during the church age are given greater abilities to lead the godly life because of Christ's cross work and the ministry of the Holy Spirit, they lead a frustrated life because of the friction between their old and new men.

Netanyahu is back to insisting that the full Palestinian National Council must muster a majority — two-thirds majority vote to revoke clauses in the Palestinian Charter which the Israelis consider hostile to them.
While the PNC did meet on April 24, 1996, rather than voting on specific changes to the Covenant (as required by the Covenant itself), it merely approved a resolution referring the matter to a legal committee which was to suggest a draft of a revised covenant.

 Algiers Declaration of a Palestinian State, 1988
On November 15, 1988, a Palestinian state was proclaimed by Yasser Arafat at a meeting of the Palestine National Council in Algiers.
But by citing this UN decision, the Palestinian leadership was on shaky ground, as it contradicted their own Palestinian Covenant and their own oft-repeated statements that 181 is "null and void".
This is extraordinatry given that the self-proclaimed Palestinian "state" lacks the fundamental qualifications of a state under established international law.

It called for 18,000 policemen, Palestinian policemen, to police their people–not to be a military operation.

And as I speak, and as Henry Kissinger gives us evidence, that Palestinian Covenant has not been changed because their intentions are still the same: they want to wipe out the Jewish presence in the Middle East.
