present a film that is
being produced espe-
cially for the occasion.
There will also be an ex-
hibit of photographs and
posters depicting Palesti-
nians in the UN Visitors'
Lounge during that week
with photos selected by
representatives of Senegal,
Guinea and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Six studies on the 'Palesti-
nians will also be published
by the UN Special Unit.
Dr. William Korey, the
director of Bnai Brith's in-
ternational research and an
expert on the UN, described
the forthcoming film to
leaders of the Greater Al-
bany Jewish Federation.
Korey, who said he was one
of the few people who had
seen an outline of the script,

of PLO terrorist raids and
justify them" and "then
condemn Israel for any re-

homeland' and made the
Palestinians 'homeless and

celebrated annually as a
day of mourning."
In addition to the Nov.
29 observance and film
premier, Schoenberg
said "the special unit will
issue news bulletins
throughout the year and
will report on actions and
resolutions of the UN on
behalf of the PLO that
support the delegitimiza-

— William Branigen writes
in the Washington Post that
Syria's floundering
economy and dependence on
$700 million in foreign aid
will limit Syria's opposition
to the Camp David accords.
