Britain's Attitude on Israel Getting a Pro-PLO Slant

By MAURICE

SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) — Brit-
ain is now giving its full
support to the claim of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization to take part in
a settlement of the Arab-
Israeli conflict. This
emerged in a speech by
Douglas Hurd, the Foreign
Office Minister in charge of
Middle East questions.
He told a luncheon of the
Middle East Association
last week that while Britain
did not regard the PLO as
the sole legitimate repre-
sentative of the Palestinian
people, "no one should doubt
that the PLO will have to be
involved in the peace proc-
ess."
Britain is doing so with
the blessing of powerful
forces in the ruling Conser-
vative Party, led by former
Prime Minister Edward
Heath. In a lengthy foreign
affairs debate in Parlia-
ment last week, Heath in-
sisted that the key to the
Middle East was the settle-
ment of the Palestinian
problem and he bemoaned
the fact that "Europe has
done absolutely nothing
about it."
Heath, while express-
ing "full support" for the
Israeli-Egyptian peace
agreement, said he re-
gretted theat the Middle
East negotiations had
been removed from the
Geneva sphere, because
there the Soviet Union
was represented. Even-
tually it would be neces-
sary to return to Geneva
and obtain the commit-
ment of the Soviet Union,
he said.
Hurd's statement came
little more than a month
after he and Sir Ian Gil-
mour, the deputy foreign
minister, met Farouk Kad-
doumi, the PLO's foreign af-
fairs spokesman, at a recep-
tion in the Syrian embassy
in London. That meeting led
to protests from Jewish
organizations which Hurd
brushed aside, saying the
meeting had been "the story
of a cocktail party."
In fact, it is symptomatic
of the increasingly pro-Arab
course which Britain is
steering as it tries to woo
the whole Moslem world in
the aftermath of the Soviet
intervention in Afghanis-
tan.
More precise advice to the
British government came
from Denis Walters, an-
other Conservative MP,
long known for his pro-Arab
sympathies. He is also a
close colleague of Gilmour
and his suggestions are un-
likely to fall upon deaf ears.
Describing American
partisanship for Israel as
"wrong" and "danger-
ous," Walters said that

"something must quickly
replace the Camp David
initiative when it peters
out on 26 May."
He added that possible
European initiatives should
include reviving the plan
for a period of international
control of the West Bank
and Gaza, put forward in
1979. The final transfer of
power to a "fully indepen-
dent Palestinian govern-
ment" could be associated
with Jordan and the ending
of the period of interna-
tional trusteeship would be
conditional on the new gov-
ernment aceding to the
peace settlement entered
into by Israel and other
Arab states."
Walters even suggested
resuscitating the 30-year-
old Palestine Conciliation
Commission, consisting of
the U.S., France and Tur-
key.
It remains to be seen how
far Prime Minister Mar-
garet Thatcher will allow
her government to go along
the present pro-PLO course.
On the international level,

she will be most reluctant to
irritate or embarrass
President Carter. She is
also a tough opponent of ter-
rorism and is sensitive to
the views of Jewish voters
in her North Finchley, Lon-
don, constituency.
However, she has dele-
gated a large degree of say
over foreign policy to Lord
Carrington, the foreign sec-
retary, who is in the foref-
ront of the Foreign Office's
pro-Moslem campaign. In
the foreign affairs debate in
the Commons, Mrs.
Thatcher herself, while
playing on the need for rap-

proachement between the
West and Islam, made no
reference to the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
