Israel Rebukes Austria Recognition of PLO

17

JERUSALEM (JTA)
Israel has protested sharply
to Austria against Chancel-
lor Bruno Kreisky's deci-
sion to extend a form of dip-
lomatic recognition to a
representative of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion. The Austrian govern-
ment announced last
Thursday it was granting
official status to Palestine-
born Ghasi Hussain who
has been accredited to var-
ious United Nations agen-
* Ths in Vienna as a PLO ob-
ver.
The Israeli Foreign
Ministry issued a bitterly-
worded protest Friday, re-
ferring to the heavy respon-
sibility Austria was taking
on itself and to the PLO's
ultimate aim which re-
mained the destruction of
Israel. Labor Party chair-
man Shimon Peres also ca-
bled Kreisky to protest the
Austrian move, the first
such action by a non-
Communist European gov-
ernment. Peres and Kreisky
are both members of the
Socialist International.
In Vienna Friday, Israel
Ambassador Yissakar
Ben-Yaacov protested to the
Austrian government say-
ing the move contradicts the
Austrian policy of recogniz-
ing governments not organ-
izations. "This is even more
deplorable when you take
into account that the PLO is
an organization that aims to
destroy Israel," he said.
Hussain, meanwhile,
called on other West
European countries to
follow Austria's example
and recognize the PLO.
Austrian Foreign Minis-
try sources said the
recognition of the PLO is
a direct consequence of
Kreisky's speech before
the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly last fall in
which he said Austria
recognizes the PLO as the
representative of the
Palestinian people.
In Washington, the State
Department withheld
comment on the Austrian
move. The Austrian gov-
ernment is well aware of
what our position is regard-
ing the PLO," Department
spokesman Tom Reston
said. He repeated President
Carter's statement to the
United Jewish Appeal
Young Leadership Confer-
ence in Washington three
weeks ago that the U.S. will

not negotiate with the PLO
until it accepts UN Security
Council Resolutions 242
and 338 and Israel's right to
exist.
Meanwhile, the Simon
Wiesenthal Center for
Holocaust Studies
at
Yeshiva University of Los
Angeles sent a cable to
Kreisky declaring that
"Jews the world over are
outraged" at the Austrian
action. Our indignation is
only deepened by the fact
that this move took place on
the 42nd anniversary of the
Anschluss, the unification
of Austria with Nazi Ger-
many," the cable declared.
West German Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt said he ap-
proved of France's efforts to
alter Security Council Reso-
lution 242 in favor of the
Palestinians, but said he
was not recognizing the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
In London, British
Foreign Secretary Lord
Carrington told Jewish
leaders on Monday that
in a Middle East settle-
ment, Palestinian recog-
nition of Israel's right to
exist should be balanced
by Israeli acceptance of
Palestinian political
rights. At the same time,
he assured them that
there had been no change
in British policy towards
the Palestine Liberation
Organization or over
Palestinian rights since
his address to the UN
General Assembly last
September.
According to a Foreign
Office spokesman, he also
stressed British support for
Israel's security, reaffirmed
backing for the Camp David
agreement and hoped that
the negotiations on au-
tonomy would be successful.
Lord Carrington gave his
assurances during an hour-
long meeting with five lead-
ers of the Jewish commu-
nity who had asked to meet
him following signs of a
pro-Palestinian shift in
British and European Eco-
nomic Community (EEC)
policy.

Lord Carrington
Does Not Believe
PLO Is Terrorist

Carrington later said that
he did not believe the PLO is
"a terrorist organization as
such."

HIAS Aids Viet Refugee,
ijetroiters Aid Boat People

NEW YORK —HIAS, the
orldwide Jewish migra-
,- n agency, was the first
voluntary immigration
agency in the U.S. to have
directly assisted and re-
ceived a refugee from the
People's Republic of China.
The 14-year-old Viet-
namese refugee had escaped
into China, but was unable
to join her family who had
already escaped and were
living in the U.S.
HIAS learned of the girl's
plight and secured a special
humanitarian visa through
the Immigration and
Naturalization Service.

iF

HIAS' Indochinese de-
partment has been re-
sponsible for the reset-
tling of 8, 1 17 refugees
since 1975.
In a related development,
Detroit's Temple Beth
Jacob has sponsored two
"boat people." The two
brothers are being housed
with Dr. and Mrs. M. Ken-
neth Dickstein of West
Bloomfield. Clothing and
furnishings have been pro-
vided by the temple and
Temple Kol Ami. Their
mother, four brothers and
sisters are awaiting efforts
on their behalf for their re-
lease.

Lord Carrington's state-
ment in the House of Lords
came after the five Jewish
representatives had met
with him.
Lord Carrington said in
the House of Lords that he
was "not aware" that Yasir
Arafat, the Palestinian
leader, had often said the
purpose of his group was to
destroy Israel.
"If that is the objective
of the PLO, then I con-
demn it," the foreign sec-
retary said. "I do not
think the PLO is a ter-
rorist organization as
such. 'I think there are
some elements of the PLO
which in the past have
been associated with ter-
rorism but it would be a
great mistake to assume

you can get a settlement
in the area without tak-
ing into account the
PLO."
Britain is maintaining
"an even-handed view on
this subject," he said.
The Jewish communities
Western Europe pro-
tested to their governments
over reported moves within
the European Economic
Community to support the
PLO and "interfere" in the
Middle East peace process.
In New York, Israeli UN
Ambassador Yehuda Blum
told the National Commit-
tee for Labor Israel that the
EEC moves and the March 1
UN Security Council vote
against Israel were isolat-
ing Israel from the commu-
nity of nations.
