Israel, PLO will sign pact
TABA, Egypt — After all-night
talks, a shouting match and an angry
walkout by Yasser Arafat, Israel and
the PLO agreed Sunday to sign a pact
at the White House endingnearly three
decades of Israeli occupation of West
The agreement, the second phase
of the 1993 Israel-PLO peace treaty,
was hailed by Palestinian leaders as a
major step toward their own state.
Other Palestinians said it gave them
too little, and militant Jewish settlers
vowed to do anything necessary to
The 460-page pact allows for Pal
estinian self-rule in 30 percent of the
West Bank — containing most of its
Arab population — after a step-by
step Israeli pullout. Israel has occu
pied the lands since the 1967 Mideast
War. The plan also allows for Pales
The accord was initialed in Taba,
an Egyptian resort on the Red Sea, by
the chief negotiators, Ahmed Qureia
of the Palestine Liberation Organiza
tion and Israel’s Uri Savir,just before
the Jewish New Year holiday. The
signing in Washington is set for Thurs
“We will work so that this new year
will be a real year of peace,” said
Arafat, the PLOchairman. “Thisagrec
ment will open the door for a better
future ... to create a new Middle East
of security and peace.”
The agreement followed nightlong
talks that capped more than 80 hours
of tense negotiations. Earlier Sunday,
a shouting match erupted between
Arafat and Israeli Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres and the PLO leader
Arafat was angry that Israel re
fused to expand the borders of the
self-rule enclave in Jericho. There were
also reports he wanted a more specific
timetable for the release of about 5,000
Palestinians in Israeli jails.
But Arafat relented after Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin prom
- iscd to discuss the prisoner issue in
Washington before Thursday’s sign
ing, Palestinian sources said. Other
officials said talks got back on track
“We will work so that this new year will be a real
year of peace. This agreement will open the door
for a better future ...to create a new Middle East of
security and peace. ”
after intervention by U.S. Mideast
coordinator Dennis Ross and Egyp
Peres called the accord “history in
the real meaning of the word.”
“It is a tremendous attempt to bring
people that were bom in the same
cradle, who were fighting on the same
fronts, to agree on a new future,” he
President Clinton called the agree
ment “a big step on the road to a just
and lasting peace in the Middle East.”
Extremists on both sides, however,
pledged to wreck the accord.
Militant Jewish settlers warned of
bloodshed and vowed violent opposi
tion. And as newsofthe pact spread jji
the West Bank, Palestinian youths
hurled stones at Israeli soldiers in two
cities. In Nablus, a youth was killed in
a fourth day of clashes.
In Hebron, protesting youths were
disappointed the agreement will not
bring a full Israeli withdrawal. Some
troops are to remain to protect the 450
settlers livingamongthe city’s 120,000
The agreement detailed security
measures aimed at preventing conflict
between radicals among the 140,000
Jewish settlers and the 1 million Arabs
in the West Bank.
A summary of the agreement said it
would “allow the Palestinians to con
duct their own internal affairs, reduce
points of friction between Israelis and
Palestinians and open a new era of
cooperation and coexistence based on
common interest, dignity and mutual
Rabin said Palestinians would get
control over 30 percent of the 2,270
square-mile West Bank, which is about
the size of Delaware.
The accord distinguishes between
the seven cities where there will be
full autonomy — Jenin, Nablus,
Tulkarm, Qalqilya, Ramallah,
Bethlehem and most of Hebron—and
rural areas where overriding security
authority will remain in Israeli hands.
The 12,000-strong Palestinian po
lice force is expected to carry out joint
patrols with Israelis in some areas.
But the Palestinian police will not
have authority to arrest Israelis.
The Israeli withdrawal will clear
the way for Palestinians to elect a 82
member self-rule council with legisla
tive and executive branches. Palestin
ians want elections before Jan. 20, but
some said they would wait until March,
the deadline for an Israeli troop pull
out form Hebron.
The agreement is to be brought to
Rabin’s Cabinet for approval Wednes
day and submitted to Parliament next
Sunday, after the signing.
Rabin said the agreement would
enable Israel to be “a Jewish state and
not a binational state... and alongside
us a Palestinian entity not subservient
to us, not under our rule, which will
live with us in coexistence and peace.”
He said he believed, however, that
such an entity would be “less than” a
Israeli right-wing leaders blasted
Sunday’s agreement. Benjamin
Netanyahu, leader of the Likud oppo
sition party, charged it was “peace at
any price.” His colleague Benjamin
Begin called it a “tragedy.”

Those situations create conflicts of
interest, Beck said, which bring the
supervisor’s objectivity in grading or
evaluation into question.
Under the new policy, if a supervi

For example, if a dean were dating
a faculty member in his department, a
third person would have to supervise
the faculty member. But the dean and
faculty member would be allowed to
continue a personal relationship.
The policy was developed by a
committee made up of faculty, admin
istrative, staff and student representa
tives from several university groups.
So far, Beck said, this draft hasn’t
received any objections.
After the committee is finished with
the draft, it goes to Christy Horn,
interim director for affirmative action
and diversity, who then forwards it to
Interim Chancellor Joan Leitzel.
“It’s broader-based than more
people think,” Horn said. “I think it’s
a very good document.”
