She is, without a doubt, the second most widely recognized Palestinian in the Western world after Yasser Arafat--and considerably more attractive. Hanan Mikhail-Ashrawi, 49, also is more articulate in English than the Palestinian leader, which has made her the unofficial spokeswoman for the cause of an independent Palestinian state. Ashrawi arrived on the world stage in 1991, with the beginning of Arab-Israeli peace talks in Madrid.

Israeli police have reportedly recommended that the government prosecute Hanan Ashrawi, spokeswoman for Palestinian negotiators at the recent Mideast peace conference, for allegedly meeting with officials of the Palestine Liberation Organization. If the charges are filed, it could be a serious blow to the delicate U.S.-sponsored peace process. However, a senior Israeli government source said Friday the government would take into consideration Ashrawi's prominent role in that process.

Saeb Erakat, a Palestinian professor and newspaper editor, sat among the rows of delegates at last week's Middle East peace conference, a black-and-white checked scarf folded carefully around his shoulders--the same kind of kaffiyeh that Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat folds into the shape of Palestine every morning and places on his head. It was a quiet statement from a delegation the Israelis had agreed to meet with only because they didn't have PLO membership cards.

Hanan Mikhail-Ashrawi resigned from the Palestinian self-rule government, criticizing Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat over corruption and the handling of peace talks with Israel. Another Cabinet minister, Abdel Jawad Saleh, also resigned. Ashrawi, the minister of higher education, said she declined the new post of tourism minister in Arafat's newly reshuffled Cabinet because "comprehensive reform was not addressed in this new government formulation."

Israel was tight-lipped about any progress Thursday in talks with U.S. envoy Dennis B. Ross about terms for handing over more West Bank land, and the Palestinians said bridging gaps in the peace process will be difficult. Ross held separate talks in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and top Palestinian officials. In a statement afterward, Netanyahu's office made no reference to progress. "Israel still expects full reciprocity from the Palestinians," the statement said.

A sincere idealism runs through the two-part report, "Women in War" (Sunday and March 4, 8 p.m, on the Arts & Entertainment cable channel)--an idealism that tends to project both a sense of hope and an air of simplifying complex issues. Host Pat Mitchell, of the "Today" show's "Woman to Woman" segment, voices the idealism, but without the verve and color that a Linda Ellerbee might bring to the story.
