    Background: The Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Yasser Arafat, was the guest speaker at the anniversary rally of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) held in Beirut on Sunday (21 February). The Marxist organisation came into being 13 years ago (1969) after splitting from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). In a reference to the West Bank, Yasser Arafat told the audience there would be no ceasefire in the Middle East as long as there is occupied land. He also accused the Israelis of massing three divisions of troops in its northern frontier with Lebanon during the recent visit of U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig. The DFLP also held a military parade to celebrate its 13th anniversary. Crowds lined the street of Damour, 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of Beirut to watch the march past of troops and parade of military hardware. Among the V-I-P's attending was Yasser Abd Rabbo -- a member of the executive committee of the PLO and number two in the DFLP.
