    It's not necessary for J Street to ask the Palestinians to recognize Israel's right to exist. The PLO did that many years ago. In August 1993, in a mutual exchange of letters, PM Rabin insisted on changes to the Palestinian Charter. In response, Arafat wrote that the PLO recognized the State of Israel. It also declared it recognized UN resolutions 242 and 338, and that the PLO commits to the ME peace process and to peaceful resolution of conflict thru negotiations. It said the PLO renounces terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility to prevent violations and discipline violators. Arafat wrote "those articles of the Palestinian covenant which are inconsistent with commitments of this letter are now inoperative and no longer valid." 9 Sept. 1993. The charter was changed to read: " A. The Palestinian National Charter is hereby amended by canceling the articles that are contrary to the letters exchanged between the PLO and the Government of Israel, 9-10 Sept. 1993"
