The PLO

 

 

 

The seeds of the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) were first sown in 1956 by an EGYPTIAN, Ahmed Shukairy. He was the guiding light of this terror group and is remembered today as the one who coined the organization's famous slogan about "driving the Jews into the sea." Yasser Arafat took control of the PLO in 1964 and began directing terror raids on Israel. By 1968, Yasser Arafat had taken control of Fatah.

Besides being committed to terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli citizens, the PLO was the most important member of the international terrorist network. It provided training, money, intelligence and weaponry for terrorist movements in Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Africa, Asia and Latin America! The PLO left behind a trail of blood and an atmosphere poisoned with racist hatred over all corners of the world.

The PLO was an umbrella organization for various other factions:

1. Fatah, the largest, was founded in 1956 by a group of young Gazans. It was, and STILL IS, the military arm of the P.L.O. Among the young terrorists was Yasser Arafat. By 1968 Arafat was al Fatah's leader. Among the offshoots of Fatah was the infamous Black September who massacred the Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. .

2. The Popular front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) was the second largest of the commando groups. It was founded in 1967 by George Habash. The P.F.L.P. carried out some spectacular skyjackings in the 1970. But 30+ years does not diminish their thirst for Jewish blood. In October or 2001, several of their operatives murdered the Israeli Government Minister Rechavam "Ghandi" Ze´evi.

3. The Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine split from the P.F.L.P. which it accused of not being militant enough. This group carried out the terrorist raid on Ma'alot in May of 1974 in which 21 young Israeli school children were murdered.

4. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command was another splinter group of the P.F.L.P. They were responsible for the 1974 incursion into Northern Israel in which 16 residents of Kiryat Shemona were murdered.

5. Al Saiqa was formed by Syria in 1967 and was tightly controlled by Syrian intelligence. Most of its terror participants were Arab-Palestinian refugees who fled to Syria during the 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israel wars.

6. The Arab Liberation Front, a minor player in the terrorism against Israel.

These were the original PLO terrorist splinter groups. The role they play today is rather insignificant compared to the new terrorists on the block... Islamic Jihad, AL al Aqsa Brigade, Hizbullah, Hamas, Tanzim and countless other groups that seem to spring up every week. But one face has remained a constant over the last 40+ years and that is the face of Yasser Arafat, the Godfather of Arab-Palestinian Terrorism. He may have renamed his PLO to the PA (Palestinian Authority) and he may have been given a Nobel Peace Prize, but beneath his facial stubble is the same old butcher. I

t must also be pointed out that most of the early Arab-Palestinian terrorist groups were formed BEFORE the 1967 Arab-Israel War... a defensive war against the combined armies of Egypt, Syria and Jordan resulting in the so-called Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank (from Jordan), Gaza Strip (from Egypt) and the Golan Heights (from Syria). So unless it makes sense that the PLO and its various splinter terror groups were originally formed to get back territories they already controlled, then obviously, the "occupied land" was then, as it remains today... Israel itself!

The "Palestinian" leadership who continually wage war against Israel and seek her destruction, those enemies of peace, must be removed from any position where they could be of harm to Israel,the Jewish people and the free world.
