Ashrawi, according to Dr.
Mark Heller, senior lec-
turer on Palestinian af-
fairs at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity's Jaffee Center for
Strategic Studies. Faxes
and telephone calls move
continually between the
delegation and PLO
headquarters in Tunis.
"Anything that has the
slightest political
significance cannot be
decided on (by the delega-
tion) without the PLO's
approval," said Professor
Heller.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin and Foreign Min-
ister Shimon Peres sort of
wink at the arrangement,
insisting that Israel does
not — and will not
—negotiate with the PLO.
But they add that Israel
will not make an issue
over whom the Palestin-
ian delegates talk to once
they leave the negotiating
room.
Until Madrid, talking
with the PLO seemed to
be one of the most forbid-
ding taboos in Israeli poli-
tics. One poll indicated
that up to 85 percent of
Israelis favored freezing
the PLO out of the talks.
Since Madrid, the ques-
tion of whether Israel
should negotiate with the
PLO is more or less moot.
Israelis either don't notice
that the PLO is calling
the shots for the Palestin-
ians, or they don't care.
The PLO's hovering
presence at the peace
talks has not changed
American Jews' views
regarding negotiating
with the organization.
Since U.S. Jews, said
Harry Wall, head of the
Anti-Defamation
League's office in Irsael,
"don't see PLO leaders on
TV getting out of lim-
ousines and going into the
negotiations," they
believe that nothing has
changed.
This perception,
however, is shared by

very few other close
observers of the peace
talks. The press knows
that Ms. Ashrawi is giv-
ing them the PLO line,
and that the Palestinian
delegates can say nothing
of substance that isn't
cleared by Yassir Arafat.
The Israeli left sees the
organization's role as a
victory, confirming what
they always said - that
talking to the Palestin-
ians meant talking to the
PLO. For the Israeli hard
right, it is a disaster.
Elyakim Ha'etzni, a West
Bank settler and former
Knesset member, said the
Rabin and Shamir
governments' formal re-
jection — but effective ac-
ceptance — of the PLO
was a matter of "eating
pork and calling it fish."
If Mr. Arafat himself was
sitting at the negotiating
table, Ha'etzni said, "it
would make no difference
whatsoever."
Asked if the average Pa-
lestinian in the West
Bank and Gaza realize
that the PLO was his real
representative at the
peace talks, Professor
Heller immediately an-
swered, "Yes." Asked if
the average Israeli also
realize it, the professor
laughingly replied, "Only
the ones who have their
eyes open." 0
