    Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)

    Umbrella organization established in 1964 to represent Palestinian interests. Immediate goals are the liberation of Palestine from foreign control, political independence from Arab regimes, and securing the return of Palestinian refugees. It is dominated by the Harakat al-Tahrir al-Filistin (Palestine Liberation Movement, also known by its Arabic acronym Fatah), led by Yasir Arafat until his death in 2004 . In 1993 it signed a Declaration of Principles with Israel in Washington to facilitate the peace process.
