Violence Rocks (be Occupied Territories
Thc unusually intense wave of Palestinian violence in the West Bank and Gain Strip that began in7 catapulted Ihc Palestinian issue to center stage in Middle Eastern politics, butot Ihe product of an organized Palestinian rebellion. There is no evidence lhal these demonstrations have been organized or controlled by Palestinian groups outside the occupied territories. The violence originated and has been particularly acute in the Gaza Strip, whereercent of the population arc refugees who have long been more radical than (he Wot Bank Palestinians. tX%mW
Yasir Arafat's Fatah and the Popular From for the Liberation of Palestine probably have provided funds and directed their supporters to exploit spontaneous violence. Islamic fundarnentaliits also took advantage of tbe demonsl rations by portraying the PLO and Jordan as helpless in opposing tbc Israeli occupation.
Kidnaped Chilean CcJond
A Chilean Army colonel who had been held hostage formotolhan three months was released unharmed in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Chile's Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front (FPMR) kidnaped the colonel from his home in Santiago. After prolonged negotiations, theoriginally demanded J2 millionn clothing and foodstuffs for the poor in Santiago in exchange foe the colonel's rekascgJP^
Releasing iu hostage In another country suggests the FPMR is able to operateChile's borders. Thc terrorists reportedly drove from Chile through Argentina to Sao Paulo. Thu has raised concerns about possible FPMR collaboration with' leftist groups in Brazil and Argentina. The FPMR's ability to carry off such anmay prompt olher similar kidnaping attempts of Chilcart^bajritary officers and businessmen. fvwaM

Two of the car bombs were parked nextarpel store run by Afghan exiles, while thc third was parked at another market aboul (wo miles away.

In ihe, in the woke of the rlghtwing military dictatorship, ihe public did not appeare overly concerned about domestic terrorism Attacks generally were designed to avoid fatalities, and the public apparently viewed lhetar-gels usually were associated wiih controversialfolk heroes. Concern about domestic terrorism apparently has grown in rectm years,as ihe Increasing violence of terrorist attacks has damaged Greece's International image and has ltdecline in tourist revenues.,
As the public's altitude-seemed to change, thc Papan-dreou government Increasingly has been criticized for ill apparent mobility to arrest terrorists.

The ongoing US-Greek base negotiations could also Increase lhe atlraciivenesj nf US targets, as Greek domesticoften choose targets in re-'ponse to current events.
