Ruling On PLO

Ruling On PLO

The Editorial (“Exposing The PLO In Court,” Feb. 27) doesn’t really distinguish
between the Palestinian Authority then, under Yasir Arafat (who was complicit with
terrorism), and the PA under Abbas, which has made efforts to combat terror

Also, the fact that the terrorists were employees of the PA does not
logically make it responsible (but it is true that their salaries should not
have continued to be paid). So while this ruling may have some factual
basis, it serves to undermine moderate Palestinians who would want to see a
reasonable peace deal concluded with Israel, and reinforces hard-right views
that “there is no Palestinian partner.”
