of our commitments."

PLO Opens
D.C. Center

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Palestine Liberation
Organization has opened a
Palestine Information
Office to provide the Ameri-
can people "with informa-
tion about the Palestinian
people." The State Depart-
ment said that it was look-
ing into the opening of the
office, although legal ex-
perts did not believe the
government could prevent
the office from continuing to
function in Washington.
The office was listed with
the Justice Department as
having $44,000 for its first
six months of operations
and as saying that its sole
source of funds was the
PLO. Its director is Hatim
L. Hussaini, 37, who ik3 also
an assistant director of the
Arab Information Center
here. Hussaini said that he
and Hatim Khatib, the
assistant director, are Jor-
danian citizens. A third
staff member is Marilyn
Johnson, an American.
The PLO tried to open an
office in Washington in
November, 1976, but had to
close it when its director
was asked to leave the U.S.
because of false statements
he had made on his visa ap-
plication.

Nazi Camp Play
Is Performed

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
An opera written by two
inmates of the There-
sienstadt concentration
camp during World War II,
which cost the authors their
lives, had its first Israeli
performance at the
Jerusalem Theater this
week by the National Opera
of Holland. It was the main
event of this year's spring
festival in Jerusalem.
Initially, the Germans
approved of the production.
When they realized that it
was an allegorical depiction
of the horrors of the Nazi re-
gime, they banned the work
and deported the authors to
Auschwitz from where they
never returned. The script
was hidden by another pris-
oner.

Administration wanted
sales approved for all
three countries, would
fight for them and that
Carter "does retain the
fmal option."
On Wednesday, the State
Department denied that
there was any link between
the proposed sale to Saudi
Arabia and the U.S. depen-
dence on the Saudis for oil.
On Tuesday, Saudi oil
minister Sheik Zaki
Yamani implied his country
might take economic re-
prisals against the U.S. if
the jet sale was rejected.
Yamani told Washington
Post correspondents in
Riyadh that rejection of the
sale would diminish the
"amount of (Saudi)
enthusiasm to help the
West and cooperate with the
United States."

would insist on supporting
the proposed sales to all
three countries.
Vance wrote, "Indeed, we
understand that the Con-
gress will want to review
these important transac-
tions separately and with
great care and we stand
ready to facilitate that proc-
ess."
But he added: "I am sure
you will understand that
the President must also ful-
fill his responsibilities for
the conduct of foreign af-
fairs, and that this requires
that he reserve judgment on
the ultimate action to be
taken until he has had an
opportunity to review the
action taken by the Con-
gress on each of the separate
certifications."
One Administration
source said that the word
