L

ondon — The Pales-
tine Liberation Organ-
ization is expected to
play its first card this month
in an unprecedented cam-
paign to win legitimacy in the
eyes of the new administra-
tion in Washington.
Middle East observers in
Europe believe that the PLO,
with the full support and
blessing of Yassir Arafat, will
recognize Israel's right to ex-
ist when the Palestine Na-
tional Council, the PLO's
"parliament," meets in Tunis.
This will be the most dra-
matic gesture of conciliation
that the PLO has made since
it was founded in 1964.
According to reports by
well-informed sources in Lon-
don, the proposal to recognize
Israel was hammered out at
a series of secret meetings in
Tunis last week and, if
ratified by the Palestinian
"parliament!' will have far-
reaching repercussions in the
Middle East.
The PLO will not, in fact,
explicitly recognize Israel but
will, for the first time, offi-
cially speak of the existence
of "two states" on "the land
of Palestine!'
The move is aimed at
neither the Europeans nor
the Israelis, but rather at the
incoming administration in
Washington.
The PLO leaders want to
seize the initiative and per-
suade a new U.S. president
and a new secretary of state
that they are serious and
eager to negotiate.
It is a move that they are
clearly hoping will translate
into a measure of legitimacy
for themselves and pressure
on Israel to make radical
concessions.
According to one report,
about 20 PLO leaders met
throughout last week at the
PLO headquarters in central
Tunis. The meetings often
lasted well into the night and
were held amid tight securi-
ty, with PLO officials warning
that Israel might attempt to
assassinate one of their
leaders.
Palestinian sources, quoted
in London, said one of the
stormiest meetings was held
last Thursday night when the
new "two-state" position was
finally resolved.
Members of the extremist,
pro-Syrian Rejectionist Front
accused Arafat of being a
traitor and passionately
demanded that the PLO con-

tinue its policy of armed
struggle until all of Palestine
was "liberated!'
A majority of the PLO lead-
ers, however, reportedly
agreed with Arafat's conten-
tion that such a line was no
longer viable.
They contended that the
Palestinian uprising in the
occupied territories had pro-
duced local leaders who
believed that it was essential
for the Palestinians to inject
a note of realism into the
debate.
One significant develop-
ment was the firm, open sup-
port for the "moderate" line
by Arafat's deputy, Abu Iyad.
A former hard-liner, Abu Iyad
declared that the PLO must
confront reality or abandon
its role as the sole represen-
tative of the Palestinian
people.
Middle East observers be-
lieve it was a measure of the
success of the uprising that
Arafat felt strong enough to
push his case for negotiations.
"We are trying to define
political principles that the
PLO as a whole can endorse,"
said PLO spokesman Khaled
Hassan, "principles that will
be accepted by the interna-
tional community and make
the Americans less hostile!'
In addition to its non-
explicit recognition of Israel,
the Palestine "parliament"
also is expected to declare an
independent Palestinian
state and to authorize the
PLO leadership to establish a
provisional government.
Bassam Abu Sharif, a
senior Arafat lieutenant, is
confident that the new U.S.
administration will ultimate-
ly accept the need for an in-
dependent Palestinian state
and grant recognition to the
provisional government.
