  Palestine Liberation Organization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Palestinian groups were expelled from Jordan, and during the 1970s the PLO was effectively an umbrella group of eight organizations headquartered in Damascus and Beirut, all devoted to what they called armed resistance to either Zionism or Israeli occupation, using methods which included attacks on civilians and guerrilla warfare against Israel.
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).
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.

 Encyclopedia: Palestinian Liberation Organization
The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) (Arabic Munazzamat al-Tahrir Filastiniyyah منظمة تحرير فلسطينية) is a political and paramilitary organization of Palestinian Arabs dedicated to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state to consist of the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, with an intent to destroy Israel.
The PLO and its former leader Yasser Arafat had since become the generally accepted organization of the Palestinian people and its desire to have a nation of its own.
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.

The Palestinian identity is a genuine, essential, and inherent characteristic; it is transmitted from parents to children.

 Palestine Liberation Organization on Encyclopedia.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Composed of various guerrilla groups and political factions, the PLO is dominated by Al Fatah, the largest group, whose leader, Yasir Arafat, was chairman of the PLO from 1969 to 2004 and established Palestinian control over the organization.
In 1974 the PLO received UN recognition, and a government in exile was recognized by Arab nations as a basis for a future Palestinian state, to be formed from land regained from Israel along the west bank of the Jordan River.
In 2003 the appointment of Mahmoud Abbas as Palestinian prime minister and the acceptance by Palestinians and Israelis of the internationally supported “road map for peace” led to a brief reduction in violence and new talks, but the cycle of attacks and reprisals soon resumed.

 Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)
The PLO was created in 1964 during a meeting known as the Palestinian Congress in an effort to give a voice to the large number of Palestinians living in refugee camps in Lebanon.
By 1967 the PLO had decided that their primary goal was the destruction of the state of Israel.
Two groups under the PLO umbrella, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine-Hawatmeh faction (DFLP-H), suspended their participation in the PLO in protest of the agreement and continued their campaign of violence.

 Student Edition Lesson 4: The Israeli Palestinian Conflict, Rev. 2nd ed., Nov. 93
The Palestinian population of Jerusalem went from 75,000 to 3,500; of Jaffa from 70,000 to 3,600; of Haifa from 71,000 to 2,900; of Lydda-Ramle from 35,000 to 2,000; of Tiberias from 5,300 to zero.
Palestinians came to believe that if they were ever to have their land, they would have to do it themselves.
The first was called the PLO National Charter, adopted in 1964 when the PLO was under Egyptian control; the second was called the Democratic Secular State proposal of 1974; the third is the Palestinian Declaration of Independence of 1988, commonly called the two-state solution.

 Background: Yasser Arafat and the PLO
When the PLO was founded in 1964, as an umbrella organization for various Arab terrorist factions, Fatah was the largest group.
At a 1974 meeting in Cairo, the Palestinian National Council adopted a "phased plan" to eliminate Israel that sought to establish some territory under Palestinian control and then use that as leverage to continue to fight and ultimately to have an all-out war that would destroy Israel forever.
During the 1990's it became abundantly clear that Yasser Arafat and his Palestinian Authority were less than fully committed to the peace process, which ultimately failed at Camp David and resulted in the bloodshed of the al-Aqsa intifada starting in September 2000.

 Political Affairs Magazine - Arafat's Legacy
He rejected terrorism as a path to liberation, and harshly condemned the harming of innocents.
Whether he was presenting the case for the human and national rights of the Palestinian people before the United Nations, or building the PLO, or meeting with leaders of the Israeli and U.S. peace movements — which he frequently did — Arafat was untiring in his search for a just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
At the same time, Arafat was unyielding in his support for the internationally recognized right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation, and he refused to give up East Jerusalem or to renounce the right of Palestinian refugees to return.

 Terrorism - In the Spotlight: The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
The new organization was a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), with veteran activists George Habash and Abu Ali Mustafa as general secretary and deputy general secretary, respectively.
In 1999, Mustafa was sent to jumpstart new dialogue with the PLO and concede acceptance of the formation of Arafat's Palestinian Authority (PA).
This marked a significant escalation in the PFLP's policies (neither Hamas nor the Palestinian Islamic Jihad have ever threatened the lives of PA officials for fear of damaging the nationalist cause) and suggests a further radicalization of the group.

 The Palestinian Liberation Organization: People, Power and Politics, reviewed by Larry L. Fabian, May 28, 1984
Whether Khalaf's self-appraisal reflects the hubris of a leadership in decline or the strength of a movement once again ascendant after its "Beirut era" is the question that Cobban's analysis pushes to the forefront.
Throughout, she is an empathetic interpreter of the Palestinian case --- against the Arab states that have manipulated and patronized the PLO, against an Israel bent on destroying it, and against a United States determined over the years either to isolate it or to fit it into Washington's scheme of things.
Her focus, which places the book in a special niche among the handful of worthwhile studies of the PLO, is single-mindedly on the coterie of men whom she describes as the "historic generation" of Palestinian leaders --- Yasser Arafat, Khalil Wazir, Khaled al-Hassan, Farouk Qaddumi, and Khalaf.

 ISRAELI PALESTINIANS AND THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY
Political connections between Palestinian citizens of Israel and PA Palestinians are multi-layered and touch on local conflict resolution, Knesset elections, the PA regime, and the local government representatives of Palestinians in Israel.
Thus, although the PA and Israeli Palestinians agree on the benefits of increasing the number of Arab Knesset members and a Labor party victory, concrete intervention by Arafat is totally rejected by Israeli Palestinians.
Third, declarations issued by Palestinian Israeli leaders regarding the PA are pretty clear: Israeli Palestinians share a history, culture, language, and identity with their Palestinian brethren, but have a separate political system with which they expect other Palestinians (particularly the PA) not to interfere.

He may have renamed his PLO the PA (Palestinian Authority) and he may have been given a Nobel Peace Prize (the first one ever given to a certified mass murderer!) but beneath his facial stubble is the same old butcher of Jews.
Israel teaches their people that they have to live with the Arab "Palestinians" and to accept them; whereas the PLO teaches their people from the cradle to the grave to hate the Jews and to drive them into the sea.
The PLO and the PA, (Palestinian Authority...their new sanitized name since the 1993 so-call Oslo "peace" negotiations began) were created SOLELY to murder, remove or otherwise separate the Jewish people from the Land of Israel.

By the end of the 1980s, the PLO’s role as the vanguard of Palestinian nationalism had been called into question by the organization’s expulsion from Lebanon, and later, its acceptance of a two state solution in Palestine.
If Hamas was born of the Intifada, then it came of age with the conclusion of the Oslo agreement and the mutual recognition of the PLO and Israel in 1993.
This remains the modus operandi of the organization.
