ABSTRACT
The article discusses the struggle to win control over the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) between P.L.O. Chairman Yasser Arafat and rebel leader Abu Mousa. It mentions that if Mousa will be able to defeat Arafat with his Syrian-backed guerillas, Mousa will definitely make a bid for control of Al Fatah which consists 80% of PLO's strength. A U.S. State Department official also notes that if Arafat's presence is extinguished, his loyal army will inevitably resort to terrorism.
