On May 1964 with permission from the Jordan King (Hussein) commando forces and student organizations created an umbrella organization called the Palestinian Liberation Organization in a sect of Jerusalem. It's purpose was to be a Liberation Council. This Oganization was to become the leader of the Palestinians and to gain an international reputation as a terrorist organization.
The Palestinian Liberation Organization was first headed by Ahmed Shukairy. He kept his job until he bludered the Six-Day war in 1967. From 1968 and to present time Yasser Arafat of the Al-Fatah commando force has headed it. This organization decides the future of Israel and Palestine since they represent the Palestinians in all peace treaties and conferences since 1992.
There are three main parts to the PLO. The Executive Commitee has the ultimate say in all decisions about Palestinians while the Central Commitee is made up of advisors who advise the Executives what to do. The 3rd Part of the organization is the PNC or the Palestinian National Coucnil. This is a council that is recognized as an assembly of all the Palestinian People.
