Terrorists
Seek. Unity

By AMOS BEN-VERED
Chief of JTA. Middle East Bureau
JERUSALEM (JTA) — The cur.
rent taiks between Jordan and the
Palestinian terrorist organizations
held in Jedda, Saudi Arabia, may
lead. to a fiwther deterioration in
relations between the terrorist or-
ganizations themselves according
to Middle East -experts here. Of
the tive major-Palestinian organi-
zations, three are not taking part
at all. One of them is the Popular
Front for- the Liberation of Pales-
tine headed by Dr. George Hab-
bash which has claimed responsi-
bility for the hijacking of several
airliners. It is a leftist organization
which has links with the Peoples
Reptiblic of China.
Another organization which is
not represented at the Jedda con-
ference is the Popular Democratic
Front for the Liberation of Pale-
stine a breakaway group from the
'PFLP headed by Nayef Hawatmeh
who is not even a Palestinian but
a native of the Jordanian town
of Salt on the east bank of the
Jordan. It- regards itself as being
still more to the left than the
group headed by Dr. Habbash. Its
international exploits have; been
less spectacular and less damag-
ing than those of the PFLP.
The third group styles itself the
Front for. Arab Liberation. Its
headquarters is in Iraq and it
operates under the auspices of the
Iraqi Army.
El Fatah, headed by Yasser
Arafat and the Palestine Army of
Liberation commanded by Yihia
Hamoudeh, have come to Jedda
and their leaders have been tak-
ing part in the negotiations.
Also represented- are the Syrian
commanded Al Saiqa irregulars
whose exploits since the Six-Day
War have been directed niainly -
against Lebanon in an unsuccess-
ful attempt to subvert that coun-
try and overthrow its regime. In-
cidents on the Golan Heights in-
volving Israelis on the other hand
are usually the work of regular
Syrian troops.
Saudi Arabia, which favors an
agreement between the terrorists
and Jordan, has the means to- ex-
ert pressure on both. The major
part of the funds used by the ter-
rorists to purchase arms and food
.comes from oil rich Saudis. Jar-
Ban's King Hussein gets not only
money but also political support
in the Arab world from Sing- Fei-
sal and is, therefore, also vulner-
able to pressure. However, if an
agreement is indeed reached—and
many agreements have been
reached to be broken almost as
soon as they were signed—this will
cause a still deeeper rift-between
the - Palestinian groups who are
signatories to it and those who are
' not
It may also signal a still deeper
penetration of Communist China
into the area. Dr. Habbash will
almost certainly call on his Far
Eastern- ally to thwart a Jordanian-
Palestinian agreement which in
his view can only serve the aims
of imperialism Thus, if there is
no agreement, King Hussein may
fmd himself under increasing
pressure from other Arab- coun-
purportedly representing
tries
Palestinian interests. If there is
agreement at Jedda on the other
hand, the Palestinians will turn
against one another as well as
continuing to strive for Hussein's
downfall, an aim they have not
given up despite pacts and
promises.
