After the Cold War
When the Cold War ended, the PLO lost the prospect of using the Soviet-American hostilities to its own advantage. The Soviet collapse reduced the military and economic strength of the organization considerably, and its liberation strategies had to be revised (Murphy 1994). The Soviet Union started to put pressure on Yasser Arafat and other leaders in order to get the Palestinians to enter negotiations with Israel over the future of Palestine. [8] The Soviet Union did not side with Israel, but did not want continue its support for the Palestinian struggle by violent means either (Keddie 1992). This decreased the political maneuvering-space of the PLO tremendously (Niblock 1994).

In addition, the fear of arrest or detention by Syrian authorities is high. Again, this concern is shared by all Palestinians in Syria, including those who support the regime. Interviewees spoke of acquaintances who were detained simply because they had names similar to the names of men wanted by the regime and could thus be exchanged for ransoms or bribes. Others also noted the insecurity and disorder that has emerged in many areas under the control of militias hired by the regime, who exercise control over people’s daily lives.
