    PROSPECTS OF A
    PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI SETTLEMEN T
    by Bassam Abu Sherif
    Advisor to Chairman Yaser Arafa t
    Everything that has been said about the Middle East conflic t
    has focused on the differences between Palestinians an d
    Israelis and ignored the points on which they are in almos t
    total agreement . These points are easy to overlook, hidden as
    they are under a 70-year acccumulation of mutual hostility and
    suspicion, but they exist nevertheless and in them lies th e
    hope that the peace that has eluded this region for so long i s    Palestinians and the Israelis . The Palestinians would b e

    - deserves the abuse and disenfranchisement that                   or to anyone else the Israelis choose to represent them . The
    homelessness inevitably entails . We believe that all peoples -    Israelis and Mr . Schultz would also prefer to deal with
    the Jews and the Palestinians included -have the right to ru n     Palestinians of their own choosing . But it would be as futil e

    peace and security is direct talks, with no attempt by any         internationally-supervised referendum in the West Bank an d
    outside party to impose or veto a settlement . The                 the Gaza Strip and allow the population to choose betwee n

    settled without direct talks between that' parties to that         PLO is ready to abide by the outcome and step aside for an y
    dispute, and we feel that any settlement that has to b e           alternative leadership should the Palestinian people choos e
