Event #486 Arab League recognizes PLO as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people
Date: Monday, 28 Oct 1974
In October 1974, leaders of the Arab League at an Arab summit meeting in Rabat, Morocco, declared that the Palestinian people, under the leadership of the PLO (“their sole legitimate representative”), had the right to establish a national independent authority in any part of Palestine that was liberated.

In response King Hussein of Jordan announced that his country would exclude the West Bank from Jordan and would never enter into a federation with a Palestinian state, as such a step would inevitably give the Palestinian population a majority and bring about the loss of his kingdom. In the event, he did not do this until 1988, several months after the outbreak of the intifada which, he quickly realized, was directed against his rule as well as that of the Israelis.
