Although the PLO has
strengthened its ties to
terrorists in the region,
on the diplomatic front,
according to the report,
the number of PLO
representative offices
has increased by only
two despite strong Arab
political and economic
pressures. The PLO, ac-
cording to the report,
now has offices in Cuba,
Nicaragua, Ecuador,
Mexico and Peru — far
short of its goal of estab-
lishing such offices in all
24 nations of Latin
America.
Of the five countries, the
report said, only two have
accorded the PLO offices
diplomatic status — Cuba
and Nicaragua, which are
both left wing, revolution-
ary regimes, the report
noted.

prepared by Rabbi Morton

ADL's Latin American Af-
fairs Division, and Raquel
Schuster-Herr, cited the
situation in Brazil, South
America's largest and most
powerful nation, as illus-
trative of the current status
of the PLO in Latin
America.
Although the PLO has
had an unofficial represen-
tative in Brazil since 1979,
it has failed to achieve an
officially recognized office
despite frequent claims that
such recognition would be
forthcoming soon. In
January of this year, the
Saudi ambassador to Brazil
announced that the opening
of a PLO office was immi-
nent. But diplomatic obser-
vers say it is highly un-
likely.
According to the re-
port, the primary focus of
opposition to the PLO is
among the Brazilian mili-
tary who are aware that
the PLO "has long used
Brazil as a base for
subveision in Brazil and
other countries of Latin
America."
Not only has the PLO
been denied permission for
an office, the report said,
but the organization has
also been losing popular ap-

War Crimes
Trial Is Halted

BONN (JTA) — The
longest war crimes proceed-
ing ever held in West Ger-
many ended abruptly last
week when a Frankfurt
court ruled that the accused
was too ill to continue.
- The defendant, Walter
Fasold, a 77-year-old former
SS officer, was charged with
complicity in the mass
shootings of at least 180
Jewish concentration camp
inmates during World War
II.
Fasold was sentenced to
life imprisonment in 1949.
After serving 22 years, he
obtained a review of his
case. The second trial,
begun in 1971, ended incon-
clusively in 1974. A third
trial, opened in 1976, con-
tinued until last month,
during which time more
than 200 witnesses tes-
tified.
But after Fasold suffered
his third heart attack in two
years, Judge Theodor Hal-
ler ruled that the accused
was in serious danger of his
life and could no longer ap-
pear in court.

Sermons Found

PHILADELPHIA — Dr.
David Goldenberg, a
scholar of Jewish history
and president of Dropsie
University, recently dis-
covered a lost manuscript in
the college's rare book room
which lists rabbinic ser-
mons 1,500 years old.
Dr. Goldenberg said the
dust-covered, hand-written
voluine is only the third one
known to exist. Compiled in
1531 in Italy, it is entitled in
Aramaic "Pesiqta Rabbati,"
or "Chapter of Sermons."
Dr. Goldenberg found the
volume behind 'a shelf of
other books.
