UNITED NATIONS - Despite Yasser Arafat's denunciation of terrorism ahead of his meeting with Colin Powell, Islamic states at the United Nations Human Rights Commission will today win backing for a resolution that is expected to condone using "all available means, including armed struggle" to achieve Palestinian statehood.
Rulings by the commission and other leading UN bodies such as the Security Council and the General Assembly are significant because they enable causes to claim international legitimacy.
Mr. Arafat, the Palestinian leader, said on Saturday that the Palestinian leadership "rejects using violence and terror as a way to achieve political goals."
The statement opened the way for Mr. Arafat's meeting yesterday with Mr. Powell, the U.S. Secretary of State.
