During decades of violent conflict with the Palestine Liberation Organization, assassins thought to have been sent by Israel killed Palestinian leaders in several countries. In an open attack in February , the leader of the Iran-backed Party of God died along with his wife and son when Israeli helicopter gunships fired on his convoy in southern Lebanon.
Islamic Holy War -- which is substantially smaller than the militant Hamas organization and lacks its network of social services -- was molded by Dr. Shiqaqi into a group of several hundred members dedicated solely to armed conflict with Israel.

Islamic Holy War has not been involved in the talks, but its leaders said today that they expected the contacts to continue, and they were careful not to accuse Mr. Arafat of guilt by association with Israel, as they have in the past. Arafat, in a speech to an economic conference in Amman, Jordan, called for "an end to terrorism and assassinations.
