    Background: The leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, Yasser Arafat, in Kuwait for talks with the Emir, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, has made a bitter attack on United States policy in the Middle East. Speaking on a television interview, the PLO leader accused the United States of collaborating with Israel to exterminate the PLO, but he said these attempts would "be smashed by the guns of the revolution". Referring to Israel's 30th anniversary as a nation, he said the Palestinian presence meant the fight against Zionism was continuing.
