  •  PLO National Covenant (Again) (none)
    I was responding to the mistaken claim that original the PLO National Covenant did not treat Palestine as geographical unit separate from Jordan and Egypt.  It literally did not occur to me that my comment might be taken as suggesting that the Covenant still claims all of Mandatory Palestine, i.e., negates the State of Israel.

    I agree that the PLO National Council has voted to annul provisions of the Covenant that contradict the existence of Israel.  But, without meaning to undercut the preceding sentence, I have not seen a new edition of the Covenant showing exactly what's been deleted and what, if anything, has been added.
