Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion terrorists are using the terri-
tory of the Kingdom of Jordan as
a base from which to attack Is-
raeli territory. There have been six
Katyusha rockets fired from with-
in Jordan into Israel in recent
weeks.
Israel authorities do not accuse
the Jordanian Government of giv-
ing the PLO a free hand to operate
from Jordan against Israel such
as they had prior to their explu-
sion in 1970. However, they note
the growing presence of PLO
guerrilla and terrorist elements in
Jordan ever since the rapproche-
ment between King Hussein and
Yasir Arafat, the PLO chieftain.
In recent years, the Jordanian
border has been relatively free of
terrorism. The Jordanian authori-
ties considered the PLO a threat
to the Hashemite regime which
Arafat had tried to overthrow in
1970 and therefore denied it any
freedom of action in the kingdom.
That situation changed when
the Hussein-Arafat courtship be-
gan after tie Israeli Defense Forc-
es destroyed the military power of
the PLO and drove it qut of Leba-
non in 1982. Hussein still remains
deeply suspicious of Arafat and
his intentions but the king needs
the Palestinian cause to rally sup-
port against the threat posed to
his existence by President Hafez
Assad of Syria. Hence a certain
amount of freedom is being given
to the PLO by Amman.
The PLO Katyusha attacks
from Jordanian territory have
served to reinforce Israeli suspi-
cions of Hussein's intentions in
general and of the sincerity of his
professed desire to come to terms
with Israel. The Israelis remain
deeply suspicious of Hussein's
wide ranging search for arms which
resulted recently in a significant
deal with the Soviet Union for the
weapons which the United States
had refused to sell him and of his
arms purchases in Britain and
France.
It is difficult for the Israelis to
believe that Hussein's zeal to ac-
quire sophisticated weaponry is
motivated solely by his fears of
Syria and does not constitute a
threat to Israel on its eastern bor-
der. Some of the missile systems
Hussein sought to obtain in this
country and is now apparently ac-
quiring from the Soviets - anti-
aircraft missiles, for example --
could be used to harass Israeli
planes, particularly those patrol-
ling the border.
One of the weapons systems
Hussein wanted from the United
States was the Stinger shoulder-
held anti-aircraft missile. Defense

Secretary Caspar Weinberger was
reported ready to sell them but
the deal was abandoned when it
became evident that opposition to
it in Congress was too great to
overcome. Hussein is now getting
a Soviet version of the weapon.
The Reagan Administration
does not seem unduly concerned
that Jordan, a nation that the
State Department persists in re-
garding as a trusted friend, is in-
volved in a deal with the Soviet
Union which may require the bas-
ing of Soviet military technicians
_ in Jordan in close proximity to Is-
rael. The transaction, according to
a State Department spokesman,
"does not appear to represent any
fundamental change in Jordan's
traditional defense procurement
practices."
Certainly, the combination of
Jordanian activity in acquiring
weapons and the indications of
renewed PLO terrorism from Jor-
danian bases will stiffen opposi-
tion in Israel to any plans to
resolve the Palestinian question
by cession of some of the West
Bank territory. The two devel-
opments will strengthen the hand
of those who insist that Israel
must hold on to every foot of the
West Bank as a buffer and will
weaken the position of those who
would trade some of the territory
for peace.
If this lesson has now been
learned in other quarters as a
result of the developments in Leb-
anon, that bitter and terribly cost-
ly campaign may yet prove to
have had salutory longterm ef-
fects including understanding of
Israel's situation.
There is a connection, of course,
between the situation in Lebanon
where the Israeli forces have
already begun their withdrawal
and the signs of new PLO terror-
ist activity along the Jordan
River. Gen. Ori Orr, commander
of the Northern Command, recent-
ly visited settlements in northern
Israel and warned them that, with
the Israeli troop withdrawal, there
might be a resumption of PLO
shelling from Lebanese territory.
Many observers are inclined to
consider this unlikely. Given the
deep-seated Lebanese resentment
against the PLO, the result of the
abuse suffered during the years of
PLO hegemony in southern Leba-
non, they believe the Shiite militia
will not give the Palestinians any
leeway. On the contrary, one of
the major concerns in the Israeli
pullback is the possibility that,
with Israeli 'restraints removed,
the predominantly Shiite popula-
tion in the south will fall upon the
Palestinians in the refugee camps.
