E. Germany Grants PLO Embassy Status

Download PDF for this date

Heinz Galinski, leader of West Germany’s Jewish community, has protested sharply over the designation of the Palestine Liberation Organization mission in East Berlin as “The Embassy of Palestine.”

He said the East German move last Monday was all the more deplorable because East Germany has no diplomatic relations with Israel. Galinski chairs the Central Council of Jews here.
