PLO Representative Sat in on Meeting

The State Department ad-
mitted Wednesday that an
official had met "inadver-
tently" with a PLO official,
Hatam Husseini, director of
the Palestine Information
Office of Washington.
Spokesman Dean Fischer
stressed that the meeting at
the State Department did
not imply any change in
U.S. policy toward the PLO.
Husseini revealed in an ap-
pearance Tuesday night on
ABC-TV's "Nightline" pro-
gram that he had met with
an Administration official.

Fischer explained that
Husseini accompanied
Fand Kawasma, mayor of
Hebron, and Mohammed
Milhem of Halhul, when
they met with Elliott Ab-
rams, assistant secretary of
state for human rights. He
said that the department of-
ficial who admitted Hus-
seini did not know him and
thought he was part of the
travelling party accom-
panying the two mayors.
But they learned of his iden-
tity before the two mayors
were to meet with Nicholas
Veliotes, assistant secre-

tary of state of Near Eastern
and South Asian affairs and
he was barred from that

Fischer said that the
Palestine Information
Office, which opened in
1978, is registered with the
Justice Department as a
foreign agent for the PLO.
He said as long as it com-
plies with all U.S. laws and
is directed by a U.S. citizen,
or a legally resident alien, it
can operate. Husseini is be-
lieved to be a naturalized
U.S. citizen.

Bet Tzedek Legal Services
has announced it will ap-
peal a recent federal court
decision here upholding "a
precedent-setting" decision
by the Social Security Ad-
ministration (SSA) ter-
minating Supplementary
Security Income (SSI) to a
disabled Holocaust survivor
because she gets a small
monthly restitution pay-
ment from the West Ger-

Terry Friedman, Bet
Tzedek Legal Services
executive director, in an-
nouncing the public service
legal agency's plan to ap-
peal the decision next
month, said Bet Tzedek
would pursue the most vig-
orous appeal possible, as
well as work strongly for
passage of a bill introduced
recently in the House of
Representatives by Rep.
Henry Waxman (D-Cal.) in
response to the plight of
Felicia Grunfeder and simi-
lar Holocaust victims re-
ceiving restitution pay-
ments. SSI payments are
made to poor persons who
receive too little or no Social
Security payments.
Rep. Waxman's bill, in-
troduced•last May, would

Blast at Galilee
Ammo Dump
Injures 15


Army engineers and border
police scoured the fields
within a six-mile radius of
an ammunition dump in
Lower Galilee where an
explosion occurred Sunday.
Three women in
neighboring Arab villages
were slightly hurt and a
dozen people were treated
for shock.
The explosion occurred at
an ammunition dump near
the Golani crossroads half-
way between Nazareth and
Tiberias. The dump was
used to house ammunition,
including artillery shells
and Katyusha rockets, cap-
tured in Lebanon and
trucked back to Israel.
Engineers believe the
explosion was the result of a
smoldering cigarette butt or
a fire caused by sunlight fil-
tered through a glass

tions in determining SSI
eligibility for Holocaust
survivors. Waxman, who
said his bill has 34 co-
sponsors so far, introduced
it after he learned of the re-
classification of Ms. Grun-

feder's income status.
The SSA declared Ms.
Grunfeder's monthly repa-
rations payments unearned
income, holding it placed
her total income above the
eligibility limit for SSI. She
filed suit when the SSI
payments were ended last
