The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) is a public body which has been accorded certain international legal standing. The purpose of this Comment is to chronicle the acquisition of that standing by reference to identifiable stages in a similar process undertaken by the Zionist Organization/Jewish Agency for Palestine. This kind of analysis should illustrate not only how international law bears upon Middle Eastern developments, but also how international practice of the last half century has allowed peoples such as the Jews and Palestinians to attain legal standing, as a vehicle for acquiring territorial sovereignty.
