Ambassador Ovadia Sofer of Israel said in an interview published Sunday that the West should no longer back PLO chief Yasir Arafat. Sofer told Journal du Dimanche that with the dismantling of the PLO there was a good chance for negotiation on Palestinian autonomy. He said the real representatives of the Palestinians were those who lived in the West Bank and they should join in the Camp David peace process.
