Last-ditch attempts
for peace flounder
Associated Press

U.N. Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar said today he lost
hope for peace in the Persian Gulf
after talks with Saddam Hussein,
and Iraq's lawmakers pledged to
support Saddam with their blood.
"Unfortunately, I don't see any
more reasons to be optimistic. I
don't see any reason to have real
hope," he said today after meeting
with President Francois Mitterrand
in Paris.
The meeting with Saddam in
Baghdad on Sunday had been con-
sidered the last best chance to avoid
an attack on Iraqi forces by the

multinational force assembled after
Iraq seized Kuwaiton Aug. 2.
President Bush on Sunday called
Iraq's apparent intention to keep
troops in Kuwait beyond the Tues-
day midnight withdrawal deadline "a
tremendous mistake."
Fearing an Iraqi attack, Israel to-
day called up more reserves and the
United Nations ordered the depen-
dents of its staff members to leave
the Jewish state.
In Baghdad, members of Iraq's

National Assembly shouted that
they were willing to back Saddam
"with our blood, our souls, we are
ready to sacrifice for Saddam." At
the Iraqi president's urging, the leg-
islature voted in August to absorb
Kuwait and last month approved the
release of all foreign hostages. The
assembly has voted to give Saddam
full authority over the gulf crisis.
Assembly speaker Saadi Mehdi
Saleh called Saddam "the knight of
the Arab nation" and said the nation
was behind him in his showdown
with "U.S. imperialism, Zionism
and Arab stooges."

rain at their encampment in Saudi Arabia yesterday. Heavy rains have soaked parts of the desert for several days.

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - A
renegade bodyguard assassinated
Palestinian Liberation Organization
leader Yasser Arafat's two top aides
and security officer last night, then
took hostage the family of one of
the victims, a senior Palestinian
commander said.
The gunner was demanding a
plane to fly him our of Tunis after
killing Salah Khalaf, Arafat's sec-
ond-in-command; Hayel Abdel-
Hamid, the PLO's security chief; and
Abu Mohammed Al-Omari, Khalaf's
bodyguard, said several sources
reached in Tunis by telephone.
The senior Palestinian official
said Abdel-Hamid's wife and teenage
daughter were being held by the
gunner, who he identified only as
"Hamza," inside their house in the
Tunis suburb of Marsa where the
shooting occurred. The house was
surrounded by Tunisian security
forces and Palestinian guerrillas five

hours after the shootings occurred at
11 p.m., the commander said.
Khalaf, considered the PLO's No.
2 leader, was better known by his
nom de guerre of Abu Iyad.
The death of Khalaf left Arafat as
the only survivor among the three
original founders of Fatah, the origi-
nal PLO group and its largest fac-
tion.
The other founder, Khalil Al-
Wazir, was assassinated by comman-
dos on April 16, 1988, also in
Tunisia.
Arafat was on his way from
Amman to Paris for talks on the
gulf crisis when the shooting oc-
curred, but cancelled his visit n light
of the assassinations, Daniel
Bernard, a French Foreign Ministry
spokesperson, said at a Paris brief-
ing.
Arafat had planned to promote a
French-Palestinian initiative in
which Iraq would pull its troops out

of Kuwait in exchange for promises:
of a future Mideast conference on the
Palestinian situation in the Israeli-
occupied territories, an aide said.
Arafat had flown into Amman earlier
yesterday from Baghdad.

One of the sources in Tunis, a
senior officer of Fatah, said:
"Investigation is under way" to de-
termine who was behind the assassi-
nation, "but all indications so far are
that Israeli agents were behind it."
"They killed them the same way
they killed Abu Jihad," he said, refer-
ring to Wazir by his nom de guerre.
Israeli sources said the Mossad
intelligence service and the Israeli
navy assassinated Wazir in 1988, be-"
cause of his role in organizing Pales-
tinian rioting against Israeli occupa-
tion of the West Bank and Gaza
Strip.

MEETING
Continued from page 1
student Jeff Miller said, "I think to
say that people should not defend
themselves in the face of attack is
not only wrong - it is criminal. I
think we should say that people
have the right to defend them-
selves against cops."
SAUSI members said the
group wants to create an atmo-
sphere conducive to student partic-
ipation and avoid splintering into
factions. As the war develops,
public awareness is expected to in-
crease, resulting in more radical
action.
The coalition voted down a
Revolutionary Workers League
(RWL) proposal to occupy Uni-
versity buildings and boycott
classes indefinitely because it was
deemed inappropriate without time
to organize.
RWL members said they, may
still resort to violence. "If we have
to stop a war, violence might have
to be used," said RWL member

and Wayne State sophomore Anya
Wisloki.
SAUSI will send delegations to
two national demonstrations to
support the anti-war movement.
In order to not conflict with
Martin Luther King Day, SAUSI
voted to attend a national march
for peace Jan. 26, instead of Jan.
19.
The later date allowed SAUSI
time to organize and plan the
march.
Political factors may be a rea-
son why the New York-based Na-
tional Campaign for Peace in the
Middle East is endorsing the Jan.
26 march. The rally on the 19th is
thought to be more revolutionary
than the mainstream anti-war
march Jan. 26.
The political differences are not
said to be reflected locally. "The
difference between the 19th
(march) is a difference on the na-
tional level. Our group's position
is that we support both protests,"
said Rackham graduate student and
SAUSI member Tom Abowd.
