ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue on the recognition of Israel in which the foreign minister of the Palestine Liberation Organization (P.L.O.), Farouk Kaddoumi, had suggested that his organization is prepared to recognize Israel's right to exist under certain conditions, however, it negates to the statement of the P.L.O. chairman's political adviser, Hani Hassan. It mentions that P.L.O.'s largest member organization, Yasser Arafat's Al Fatah, is at odds with George Habash's Popular Front for the Liberaion of Palestine which seeks to overthrow not only Israel but also conservative Arab governments like Saudi Arabia. It adds that an example of Arab democracy gone wild is the management of P.L.O.
