It mentions that the peace talk of the civil rights leaders with Palestine Liberation Organization (P.L.O.) chairman Yasser Arafat lasts for three and a half hour meeting which focuses on the dissemination of the nonviolence gospel and to end the violent attacks between the two countries as well as to the enhancement of the P.L.O. status.
