The Palestine Liberation Organization was formed in 1964. It is recognized as the only legitimate representative of the Palestinian People. The United States considered the PLO a terrorist organization up until 1991. In 1993, the PLO realized that Israel had the right to live in peace and they rejected violence and terrorism.
The Arab League began the creation of an organization that represented the Palestinian people in 1964.
Its Statement of Proclamation of the Organization declared "... the right of the Palestinian Arab people to its sacred homeland Palestine and affirming the inevitability of the battle to liberate the usurped part from it, and its determination to bring out its effective revolutionary entity and the mobilization of the capabilities and potentialities and its material, military and spiritual forces".
