I just looked up "Mujahideen-e Khalq", the IRANIAN group that Daniel said we should look up. That has to do with something you had said in passing. Your MAIN point, however, is that the PLO is, and should be labeled as, a terrorist group. In that, you are exactly right!

Indeed, Arafat, Abbas and all their sidekicks organized, funded and carried out numerous terrorist attacks before being "baptized" into born-again politicians. In reality, there was never any such conversion in the men themselves; the "change" was only in the lingo of the international community, led by Bill Clinton, then President of the United States. Arafat and Abbas both have called for and executed countless terrorist acts against innocent Israelis and others.
