Poll Says Majority
Call PLO 'Terrorists'

New York — A substantial
majority of Americans still
consider the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization a terrorist
group and question, by a two-
to-one margin, the PLO's
sincerity in renouncing ter-
rorism and recognizing
Israel's right to exist.
These were results of a na-
tionwide poll commissioned
by the Anti-Defamation
League to measure any
changes in American at-
titudes toward the PLO in the
past 18 months in light of re-
cent developments in the
Middle East. The poll, of
1,000 Americans selected at
random, was conducted July
7-11 by the New York-based
national public opinion
research firm of Penn and
Schoen Associates and made
public in August.
ADL national chairman
Burton S. Levinson said the
results show that "despite at-
tempts by PLO leader Yassir
Arafat to project a peaceful
image through words, the
PLO's ongoing terrorist deeds
speak far louder."
According to the survey,
Americans are now more
uncertain about whether the
U.S. should have direct con-
tacts with the PLO than they
were when they were polled
in January 1988 regarding
their views on the organi-
The major findings of the
July 1989 poll, according to
Levinson, were:
—Asked "whether the PLO
is a national liberation move-
ment or a terrorist organiza-
tion," 63 percent called it a
terrorist group; 14 percent
characterized it as "national
liberation" and 23 percent
said they didn't know. This
represented only a slight
decrease in those viewing the
PLO as terrorist compared to
1988 when 67 percent said
they considered the PLO a
terrorist group.

—Asked whether the PLO is
sincere in renouncing ter-
rorism and recognizing
Israel's right to exist, 42 per-
cent replied "not sincere;"
20 percent said they felt the
PLO was "sincere" and
39 percent said they didn't
—Asked whether the
United States should have
direct contact with the PLO,
43 percent replied in the affir-
mative, compared to 49 per-
cent in 1988; 38 percent op-
posed direct contact, down
from 42 percent in 1988;
while the percentage of those
who "didn't know," was

19 percent, double the percen-
tage in 1988.
—Asked whether they had a
favorable or unfavorable at-
titude towards the PLO,
46 percent replied unfavor-
able; 9 percent answered
favorable and 45 percent said
they are either unfamiliar
with the organization or
didn't know. This result
represented a slight decrease
in the PLO's unfavorable
rating — it was 51 percent in
—Asked "who is doing more
to promote peace on the West
Bank and Gaza — Israel or
the PLO — 33 percent replied
Israel; 13 percent the PLO;
16 percent replied "neither;"
1 percent replied "both" and
38 percent said they didn't
—Asked whether the PLO
would be "satisfied" if a state
were created on the West
Bank or would want to
"dismantle" Israel, 46 percent
replied that in their opinion
the PLO state would try to
"dismantle" Israel. Sixteen
percent said the PLO would
be satisfied with a state on
the West Bank and 38 percent
said they didn't know.

Jews May
Leave Germany

Bonn (JTA) — Some Jews
are seriously considering
leaving West Germany follow-
ing the stunning electoral
successes of neo-Nazi parties.
In particular, the success of
the neo-Nazi Republican par-
ty has disturbed Jews, accor-
ding to a report in the week-
ly newspaper of the West Ger-
man Jewish community.
Leibi Rosenberg, a veteran
Jewish reporter here, has
written that many Jews have
shown interest in language
courses and that those who
hold American passports are
Canadian passports are
considered a good alternative
to American ones, while
Israeli citizenship is seen as
a last resort.
The clearest reason behind
the talk of emigration,
Rosenberg said, was the
results of the June 18 elec-
tions to the European
In the West German elec-
tion, the Republicans scored
nearly 8 percent of the vote,
establishing themselves as an
important political force.
