government in Gaza and the
West Bank.
U-M's Tanter said the in-
dependence and peace in-
itiative will be doomed by the
traditional split in the PLO
between hardliners like
Habash and Hawatmeh, and
Arafat's mainstream Fatah
movement.
Habash and Hawatmeh will
not accept a provisional
government and recognition
of Israel, Tanter said.
However, excluding them
from such a government will
"create conditions of civil war
within the Palestinian
resistance."
The
Palestinian
underground leadership in
the territories already has
drafted a proposal that would
divide territory along the
lines of the United Nations'
original Palestine Mandate.
That plan would place in
Arab hands not only the West
Bank and Gaza but much of
the Galilee, a part of Israel
since independence in 1948.
Syrian President Hafez al-
Assad, who once ousted the
PLO from his own country,
does not support any type of
Palestinian government
headed by the PLO.
But the Egyptian govern-
ment this week expressed ap-
proval for the provisional
government. A PLO con-
tingent, led by Arafat's
political adviser Hani al-
Hassan, held talks on Mon-
day with Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak and Foreign
Minister Esmat
Abdel-Meguid.
The underground leader-
ship's draft also calls for a
local legislature composed of
152 top Palestinian leaders.
The leaders would eventually
head the Palestinian Na-
tional Council.
As a provisional govern-
ment, the PLO might be in
the position to make more
concessions to Israel than as
a resistance movement, said
WSU's Waters.
The PLO would be willing
to enter negotiations with
Israel to increase interna-
tional recognition, he said.
Negotiations would bring
concessions, Waters said.
Israeli Consul General for
the Midwest Uri Bar-Ner said
the Jewish state rejects "all
actions designed to lead to a
Palestinian state. We are ab-
solutely against it.
"A Palestinian state may be
good for political science
classes, but it's not a game for
us," he added. "It will con-
stitute a mortal danger to

cordially invites you to its

Yassir Arafat: Nothing new?

Israel, no matter what the
PLO does."
Bar-Ner rejected unilateral
moves on the part of the
Palestinians and favored a
gradual approach to peace.
"We have to build the con-
fidence of both parties. We
don't trust the PLO and we
don't have anybody else who's
coming forward."
Despite
Hussein's
withdrawal of his claim to the
West Bank, Jordan must be a
part of any negotiations over
Israel's eastern front, the con- -
sul said. "So we are for a
Palestinian-Jordanian
negotiating team."
Israel's apparent failure to
seize the initiative in the face
of rapid changes in the Arab-
Israeli conflict is typical,
Tanter said. "The govern-
ment of Israel could stimulate
the peace process in many
ways. Generally, Israel does
not initiate anything, but
responds!'
Meanwhile, Israel Minister
of Commerce and Industry
Ariel Sharon has proposed
that Israel formally annex
sections of the West Bank —
a move said to have been pro-
mpted by King Hussein's cut-
ting ties with the territories.
A group of Likud ministers
were to convene this week to
discuss the issue.
Sharon said the areas are
"required for security," but
stopped short of using the
term annex. Instead, he said,
the Knesset should "apply
Israeli law" to the West Bank.

Help Needed

Tel Aviv — Magen David
Adorn is seeking U.S.
volunteers to supplement its

successfully used vounteers

bulance crew members.
