Map – Israel & The PLO (1985 – 1994)

TIME PERIOD: 1985 – 1994

“The withdrawal from Lebanon was carried out in stages between February and June [1985]. The bulk of the troops returned to their bases inside Israel. Small forces remained in the [U.N.] security zone and coordinated their activities with the SLA [South Lebanon Army].”

Avi Shlaim, The Iron Wall p. 427, W.W. Norton & Company Inc., 2001

“The population of the territories under Israeli occupation, the West Bank and Gaza, had erupted [1987] in a movement of resistance, almost universal, at times peaceful and at times violent, although avoiding the use of firearms; the local leadership had links with the P.L.O. [Palestine Liberation Organization] and other organizations. This movement, the intifada, continued throughout 1988, changing the relationship of Palestinians with each other and with the world outside in the occupied territories.”

Albert Hourani, A History of the Arab Peoples, p. 433, Warner Books Edition, 1991

“In a somber broadcast, King Hussein announced that Jordan was severing its ‘administrative and judicial’ links with the West Bank, ‘in deference to the will of the PLO’ — Jordan was washing its hands of the future of the territory and its inhabitants…Now Hussein had indicated that if the West Bank could eventually be wrested from Israeli control, it would become a PLO fief rather than revert to Jordan…Hussein’s move was the PLO’s ‘first political gain’ in the Intifada.”

Benny Morris, Righteous Victims, p. 605, Vintage Books, 2001
