The PLO was created in 1964 when the West Bank and the Gaza Strip were not under the control of Israel. Its original purpose was to “push the Jews into the sea” and the complete destruction of the Jewish state. During the 1993 Oslo Accords the PLO under Yasser Arafat agreed to to revise the covenant which had called for “the liquidation of the Zionist presence”. However in a speech given to the Palestine Legislative Council he justified this step by referring to Muhammad’s Treaty of Hudaybiyah with the Koresh tribe. This peace pact was used by Muhammad to muster enough military strength to conquer the Koresh who would surrender without a single fight.[4]
