Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, October 31, 1974 Kissinger to face tough new realities in next Mideast trip By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) State Secretary Henry Kissinger will face some tough new realities when he returns to the Middle East late next week, thanks to the emergence of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as an indispensable factor to be reckoned with in that explosive region. For much of its seven years of existence, the PLO was ig- nored or manipulated by Arab governments and reviled by most others because of the murderous activities of its more fanatic elements. Now tiie PLO and its resourceful chairman, Yasir Arafat, have been acclaimed by Arab leaders meeting in Morocco as the sole representatives of the three million Palestinians scattered throughout the Arab world and as the eventual rulers of any land reclaimed from Israel for the Pal- Even King Hussein of Jordan, long a mortal enemy of Arafat and the PLO, acceded to the Rabat with what reservations is not known. Few Middle East experts are ready to believe Hussein has supinely given up his interest in the issue. Official United States reaction to the developments has been cautious while the Israeli government has responded with unsurprising gravity. Kissinger, now on tour in Bangladesh, said through a spokesman that the U.S. still believes a step-by-step negotia- tion that includes Jordan offers the best chance for success. It was the same stance he is understood to have taken ear- lier this month in meeting with the Arab leaders. Since Israel was adamant about dealing with the Palestinians, he main- tained, negotiations over the future of the Israeli-occupied west bank of the Jordan River would have to involve Hussein, who ruled the west bank before the 1967 war. American officials travelling with Kissinger are quoted here as saying they want to hear in detail from friendly leaders in the Arab world about the Rabat declaration before reaching any conclusions. But Premier Yitzhak Rabin told the Israeli parliament that the Arab moves "do not bode well for Israel." He reiterated that his government would not negotiate "with terrorist organizations whose declared aim is the destruction of Israel." The best hope for a successful resumption of negotiations between Israelis and Arabs would appear to lie in a drastic modification of the Palestinian's declared aims, which include relentless antagonism to the state of Israel. That might lead to acceptance by Israel of some form of Palestinian participation in future negotiations, for example with PLO advisers in a Jordanian delegation.
