Institution. But most Jewish
leaders predicted that the
meeting — trumpeted in the
national press as a meeting
between Arafat and "Jewish
leaders"— would have little
effect on American diplomacy
or on U.S.-Israeli relations.
"This was all staged by
Arafat for the benefit of the
American public," said a lob-
byist with a pro-Israel
organization. "If he was
serious about recognizing
Israel, he'd do it directly. I
think it's a fairly transparent
ploy."
Generally, the meeting —
which came in the wake of
the controversy centering on
the decision to deny Arafat a
visa to speak at the United
Nations — was condemned by
mainstream Jewish organiza-
tions in Washington and New
York.
Immediately, the American
Jewish Committee moved to
make it clear that Rita
Hauser was acting indepen-
dently of the organization.
Hauser, who served as a
delegate to the United Na-
tions Commission on Human
Rights, has served on the AJ
Committee's executive com-
mittee. According to Ira
Silverman, the group's ex-
ecutive director, the Commit-
tee did not know in advance
of Hauser's activities.
The Swedish Foreign Minis-
try issued a brief statement
saying the discussion was
"fruitful and constructive"
and that "important progress
had been made."
Members of the ministry
took part in the meeting,
along with the five Ameri-
cans, Arafat and his delega-
tion. The meeting was held at
the Riksdag, Sweden's parlia-
ment. It was facilitated by
Swedish Foreign Minister
Sten Andersson.
Mainstream Jewish organ-
ization were quick to con-
demn the meeting, which was
first announced Monday
afternoon. Among those issu-
ing condemnatory statements
were the American Zionist
Federation, Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, B'nai
B'rith International, the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions and the Simon Wiesen-
thal Center.
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the ADL, said the
delegation "does not repre-
sent the mainstream of Jew-
ish opinion in the United
States" and the meeting
"does not reflect a softening
in American Jewish atti-
tudes" toward the PLO.
The American Zionist Fed-
eration statement, which
called the Jewish participants
"actors in Yassir Arafat's

public relations melodrama,"
was signed by the organiza-
tion's president, Benjamin
Cohen, one of Rosensaft's
predecessors as president of
the Labor Zionist Alliance.
Rosensaft's participation in
the meeting puts him on a
collision course not only with
his own organization and
most mainstream Jewish
organizations, but with
Israel's Labor Party, with
which the LZA is affiliated.
Labor leader Shimon Peres
came out strongly against in-
itiatives made by the PLO at
the Palestine National Coun-
cil meeting last month in
Algiers. The PNC declared a
Palestinian state and only in-
directly recognized Israel.
The Labor Party also has
joined the Likud in rejecting
official talks with represen-
tatives of the PLO. Israelis
who have openly met with the
PLO in the past have been
prosecuted.
