Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has been officially termed a "traitor" by the Palestinian Liberation Organisation. The PLO is seeking a summit of Syria, Iraq, Algeria, south Yemen and Libya to discuss the Egyptian leader's visit to Israel and to consider sanctions against him. A pro-Syrian guerrilla group has gone further-it demands Sadat's assassination for what is described as the biggest crime" against Egyptian nationality and humanity. Whatever action against Sadat is promoted by the Arab "hawks", their current strong reactions are regarded by observers as a real obstacle to a rapid peace settlement. In Damascus on Tuesday (November 21), one of the elder statement of the Palestinian national movement, Mr. Khaled al Fahoum, said peace had been set back by Sadat's visit.
