Meese Orders PLO
Mission Closed

Washington (JTA) — Attor-
ney General Edwin Meese In,
acting in compliance with
legislation adopted by Con-
gress, ordered the Palestine
Liberation Organization's ob-
server mission at the United
Nations to close by March 21
or the Justice Department
will seek a court injunction to
force it do so. A written order
to that effect was delivered
to Zehdi Terzi, the PLO
representative at the United
Nations.
The decision was an-
nounced last week by Charles
Cooper, assistant attorney
general in the Justice Depart-
ment's office of legal counsel.
The U.N. Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar was
informed of the decision by
Herbert Okun, acting U.S.
permanent representative to
the United Nations.
The announcement comes
shortly after the U.N.
General Assembly voted 143
to 1 to condemn any U.S. clos-
ing of the mission as a viola-

tion of the 1947 U.N. Head-
quarters Agreement and call-
ing for international arbitra-
tion by a three-member tri-
bunal. The United States has
repeatedly said it will not ac-
cept arbitration of the matter.
The controversy surround-
ing the PLO mission stems
from the State Department's
1988 Authorization Bill,
adopted by Congress and
signed by Reagan, which
orders the mission closed by
March 21.
While Congress and the ad-
ministration agreed on the
issue of closing the PLO's
Washington office, the State
Department opposed closing
the U.N. mission because of
possible U.S. obligations
under the 1947 treaty. That
treaty provides protection for
free entry and transit of
foreign officials to the United
Nations, but the treaty's
reservations clause allows the
United States to control the
flow of "aliens" into this
country.

Minister's Speech
Angers Canadian Jews

Ottawa (JTA) — The Cana-
dian Jewish Congress issued
a statement demanding that
Prime Minister Brian Mul-
roney repudiate remarks by
Affairs Minister Joe Clark in
which he said Canada con-
demned Israel for human
rights violations in the ad-
ministered territories.
Clark, whose full title is
minister of state for external
affairs, spoke last week at the
closing session of the ninth
annual Parliar entary Con-
ference of the .C'anada-Israel

Committee, a pro-Israel lob-
bying organization. He ac-
cused Israel of violating the
Fourth Geneva Convention
with regard to the treatment
of Palestinian civilians.
In his speech, twice inter-
rupted by jeers from the au-
dience and a walkout by
about 100 of them, Clark
said, "We condemn violence
committed by either side in
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, but the human rights
violations perpetrated by
Israel are unacceptable!'

Rabbis Plan Hunger
Strike For Refusenik

Washington (JTA) - Seven-
teen rabbis held a one-day
hunger strike, timed to coin-
cide with the start of re-
fusenik Yuli Kosharovsky's
planned hunger strike in
Moscow on the 1_7th anniver-
sary of his application for an
exit visa.
Following a vigil across the
street from the Soviet Em-
bassy, Rabbi Ralph Dalin,
Soviet Jewry chairman of the
Washington Board of Rabbis,
and Robin Saipe, community
relations coordinator in the
Washington office of the Na-

tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ), delivered let-
ters to the Soviet Embassy on
behalf of Kosharovksy.
Members of Congress deli-
vered remarks on the floors of
the House and Senate in sup-
port of Kosharovsky.
Kosharovsky, one of the
best-known refuseniks, has
been denied visas on the
grounds that he was privy to
state secrets. In 1980, the
restriction expired, but was
still not allowed to leave
because he had "no close
relatives in Israel."
