Where does the PLO fit into all this stuff going on with Gaza and the blockade? Are they with or against Hamas? According to an article written in 1996: "The May 1994 agreement that spells out the terms of PLO control over the Gaza Strip and the city of Jericho explicitly required it to "take all measures necessary to prevent" terrorists operating on its territory from attacking Israelis. The Oslo II accords of September 1995, which gave the PLO and its governing arm, the Palestinian Authority (PA), control over seven major cities in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), reaffirmed that obligation: "The Palestinian Police will act systematically against all expressions of violence and terror." At that time, Shimon Peres had also said, "Why should we chase the Hamas when the PLO can do it for us?" If Hamas are controlling gaza, does that mean the PLO aren't anymore?
