The United States has given Israel the names of at least seven Palestinians for consideration as possible members of a Jordanian-Palestinian delegation to Mideast peace talks, Washington officials said. The list, submitted unofficially to Prime Minister Shimon Peres, has not been formally approved by Jordan or the Palestine Liberation Organization. Among those reportedly on the list are Abdel-Hamid Sayegh, Speaker of the Palestine National Council; Mayor Elias Friej of Bethlehem, and Prof. Edward Said of Columbia University.
