struggle with Israel
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) —
Closing a bloody chapter in history,
the Palestinians’ parliament-in-exile
declared Wednesday that it no longer
sought Israel’s destruction and had
abandoned armed struggle.
With the vote, the Palestine Na
tional Council moved peacemaking
with Israel back on track even as Is
raeli warplanes bombed fellow Arabs
in Lebanon. It gave a boost to both
Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Min
ister Shimon Peres, who had threat
ened to suspend peace talks if the PLO
leader missed his promise to remove
the offending charter sections by May
Despite the historic importance of
the vote, Israel still faces threat of
attack from Muslim rebel groups —
such as Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and
Hamas — which oppose the PLO po
sition and deny Israel’s right to exist.
To the Palestinian leaders, many of
them former guerrillas, the vote signaled
the beginning of the end of a 32-year,
often violent struggle for statehood.
“I voted for this position to give
peace a chance,” said Mohammed
Abbas — also known by his nom-de
guerre Abul Abbas — mastermind of
the 1985 Achille Lauro hijacking in
which a disabled American cruise pas
senger was shot and killed. “This is a
message from the fighters to the world
and the Israeli people that we can take
a step forward toward peace.”
In a show of hands, the. council
voted 504-54 with 14 abstentions to
revoke all clauses in the 1964 PLO
founding charter that call for the elimi
nation of Israel. The council decided
all articles of the PLO charter that
contradict letters of mutual recogni
tion exchanged by Israel and the PLO
in 1993 would be abolished, and that
work should begin on writing a new
The vote was held behind closed
doors and there was no debate. Several

afterward and hugged and kissed a
Peres — running neck and neck
with hard-line challenger Benjamin
Netanyahu in the campaign for Israel’s
May 29 presidential election—needed
a clear Palestinian stand against vio
lence to help persuade an increasingly
skeptical Israeli electorate that Arafat
is serious about reconciliation.
An elated Peres said the vote proved
Arafat was a partner for peace.
“People always asked, 'Can you
trust Arafat?’ It emerges that he can be
trusted,” Peres said.
Trust between the two sides was
deeply shaken by four suicide attacks
by Palestinian militants in Israel in
February and March. The bombings
killed 63 people, including four assail

Dromi said he hoped Arafat would
now apply the same resolve to crush

agree on spending bill
sional leaders and White House offi
cials announced agreement Wednes
day on a huge bill financing dozens of
federal agencies for the rest of the
fiscal year, solving a long standoff that
had become a political embarrassment
for both parties.
Nearly seven months after fiscal
1996 began, the two sides resolved a
handful of stubborn environmental
disputes — in many cases following
retreats by Republicans — and pre

“We believe we have agreement on

Hatfield, R-Ore„ as yet another day of
closed-door bargaining came to an end.
Mike McCurry, presidential press
secretary, told reporters about an hour
later that President Clinton would sign
the legislation as soon as it reaches his
“The administration is satisfied that
the president’s priorities have been
addressed as weil as they can be ad
dressed,” McCurry said.
Money for agencies covered by the
bill was due to run out at midnight,
since they have been financed all fis
cal year by a series of temporary stop
gap bills. So to head offa third federal
shutdown since autumn, the House
voted 400-14 to keep programs run
