CHAPTER 61 - ANTI-TERRORISM - PLO

-HEAD-

Sec. 5201. Findings; determinations

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

The Congress finds that -

(1) Middle East terrorism accounted for 60 percent of total

international terrorism in 1985;

(2) the Palestine Liberation Organization (hereafter in this

chapter referred to as the "PLO") was directly responsible for

the murder of an American citizen on the Achille Lauro cruise

liner in 1985, and a member of the PLO's Executive Committee is

under indictment in the United States for the murder of that

American citizen;

(3) the head of the PLO has been implicated in the murder of a

United States Ambassador overseas;

(4) the PLO and its constituent groups have taken credit for,

and been implicated in, the murders of dozens of American

citizens abroad;

(5) the PLO covenant specifically states that "armed struggle

is the only way to liberate Palestine, thus it is an overall

strategy, not merely a tactical phase";

(6) the PLO rededicated itself to the "continuing struggle in

all its armed forms" at the Palestine National Council meeting in

April 1987; and

(7) the Attorney General has stated that "various elements of

the Palestine Liberation Organization and its allies and

affiliates are in the thick of international terror".

(b) Determinations

Therefore, the Congress determines that the PLO and its

affiliates are a terrorist organization and a threat to the

interests of the United States, its allies, and to international

law and should not benefit from operating in the United States.
