here from the brave few who survived a massive us indignity and dan to tell the tale. silent war eyewitness documentary on out is iraq. with bureaus spanning six continents across the globe. to. al-jazeera has correspondents live in green the stories they tell. us about it. al-jazeera fluent in world news. in one thousand nine hundred forty eight the state of israel was proclaimed. palestine was lost. sixteen years later in one thousand nine hundred sixty four the palestine liberation organization or the
p.l.o. was founded. made up of different factions the p.l.o. has been at the heart of the struggle to regain palestine ever since. setting up an independent palestinian organization was not easy. the first challenge the palestinians faced was to wrest control of their own destiny from the at abrasions. in early one nine hundred sixty five
a series of attacks were carried out against israeli civilians and infrastructure. but a previously unknown palestinian group calling itself a loss if i meaning the storm seen here in training claimed responsibility for the times. and also if i was started by a small group of palestinian activists in the diaspora they believed armed struggle was the only way to win back their lost homeland. out of breeze eams did not share this view they feared being drawn into a conflict with israel for which they did not feel prepared. palestine had been an area of conflict for many years in one thousand forty seven great britain and onstott was terminating its mandate over palestine. i repeated case that his majesty's government if you can in the faith if a step policy on the assumption that they must lay down the mandate. and to which
they have sold for twenty five years to discharge their obligations to fulfill the growth of the jewish national home and to protect the interest of the arab population. in order that there may be no misunderstanding of the execute and policy of britain i have been instructed by his majesty's government to announce with o'sullivan the day that they have consequently decided that in the absence of a second meant they must plan for and early withdrawal of british forces and of the british administration from palestine britain handed over palestine to the united nations in one thousand and forty seven the un general assembly decided to partition palestine into two states one out of the other jewish. this partition plan was rejected by palestinians in neighboring arab states. in early one nine hundred forty eight open conflict erupted between jews and palestinians in
a confidential briefing at the time america's central intelligence agency predicted a defeat for the jews. as the arabs gradually corden ate their war effort the jews will be forced to withdraw from isolated positions and having been drawn into a war of attrition will gradually be defeated. following the withdrawal of the last british troops in may one hundred forty eight jewish leaders proclaimed their stablish went on the state of israel. on the very next day five out of armies from jordan egypt lebanon syria and iraq immediately declared war. one young palestinian activist who was living in cairo at the time was keen to join the fight. and i thought. that.
the thought that there was were stem and not to lobby for the thirteen for should ban him as they mean i left school we gathered the young muslims association and we decided that whoever wanted to fight would have to bend their books. i was among those who bend their books and went and joined the army of the struggle. that . the arab armies were defeated. the newly declared state of israel seized control of most of palestine with the exception of jerusalem the west bank and the gaza strip. there. by nine hundred forty nine close to three quarters of a million palestinians had become refugees. in the late one nine hundred fifty s. in kuwait and made the popular sentiment of arab unity common in the region
a group of palestinian exiles established a secret organization. they called it the palestinian national liberation movement it became known more popularly as fact that. yasser arafat was one of the ringleaders of this new organization which favored armed struggle to achieve the liberation of palestine but quite some inhabit it was in kuwait that we named it. before it was a continuation of our palestinian nationalistic activities such activities were aimed at gaining autonomy from the arab regimes most dominant of which was the regime of egyptian president. rival palestinian groups emerged advocating coordination with nasser's regime. madness when for most of the most i would look at decision to form a palestinian branch and coordinated this with the president that it was agreed that our actions would conform with the overall egyptian military strategy that we
wouldn't carry out military action that would prematurely do egypt into a war with israel for which it wasn't yet that. nine hundred sixty four president nasser convened the first out of the summit his aim was to lead an arab response to the continued existence and growing dominance of israel. the arab leaders voted to set up a body to organize the palestinians in their diaspora a commercial katie seen here on the right a palestinian diplomat from a well known family was chosen to head the newly formed body. from the outset he wanted an organization which would not just kowtow to arab regimes and love and our going on the pilot the arabs agreed to set up the p.l.o. as a means of releasing the frustrations felt by the palestinians but then came when the shook lady who decided he was going to form a proper p.l.o. and he did he must take the credit for setting up the p.l.o.
its structure and national charter he was a great man who should be recognized as such for months later in may of one thousand nine hundred sixty four should they reconvene the first palestinian parliament in jerusalem it was called the palestine national council king hussein of jordan the country which had administered the west bank since one nine hundred fifty attended the meeting of the parliament consisted of palestinian elders as well as a younger generation who called for a more forceful approach to winning back their own about. the parliament formally announced the establishment of the palestine liberation organization and declared the state of israel as illegal to guarantee jordanian acceptance of the meeting should play the al a jordanian fears by announcing that the p.l.o. had no designs on the west bank and was only interested in regained territory from israel. should be spent the next few years building support for the p.l.o. he set out to create a body that could truly be considered
a voice for the status palestinians who traveled far and wide in his endeavors. here he is seen in china where he was accorded a welcome usually reserved for visiting heads of state. and shook edifice to. saif. ali. is a palestinian first and foremost true he was close to nasser but he proved more than once that he was a palestinian first and. he didn't take on the job to be a tool of luster but to channel the energies of the palestinian people he raised the bar when it came to losses views on palestinian nationalism get him off. he out of the house we were supposed to launch in one thousand nine hundred sixty four before the palestine national council meeting in jerusalem in it i was there in jerusalem but didn't attend the meeting i was preparing to launch military
operations as a gift to the pansy but we decided against it because we thought it might be perceived as an attempt to upstage the council meeting and its resolutions. i felt that his revolutionary comrades in fact that viewed the newly created p.l.o. with great suspicion. they felt the organization was the product of the same impotent arab regimes that had lost palestine in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. that had the activists wanted instead to take matters into their own hands and in january one thousand nine hundred five they began attacking targets in israel. although militarily insignificant the first attack was a sign of things to come. that i don't know what i mean why not but. that would be. the mark that fact he declared it had mounted the first operation although i don't believe it was the first palestinian petrol to go into a coup by palestine but the significance is that fact his declaration heralded the
independence of palestinian decision making that palestinians would no longer be subservient to arab government picked up which would never have approved the launching of the armed struggle arab leaders greeted for that operations with distrust in this day they were wary of a radical palestinian group acting on its own initiative. president nasser of egypt suspected fattah who was an extension of the muslim brotherhood with whom he was engaged in a vicious struggle palestinians who are allied to nasser hurled elaborate accusations against their fellow palestinians and fatah quality. which i find that with being an anti nasr buddy affiliated with the muslim brotherhood even a creation of the cia there was a real battle going on between egyptian intelligence and fattah so one fact that launched its first operation and announced the beginning of the armed struggle in the arab nationalist movement mounted an all out assault on fatah and accused it of
trying to drag nasser into war. other arab leaders openly spoke out in favor of negotiation rather than armed struggle in one thousand nine hundred sixteen asean president habibie arrived in egypt on a tour of the region. while in the west bank he advised his palestinian audience to seek a negotiated settlement in order to resolve the palestinian refugee problem. a message he repeated in lebanon on. my roof and i. have a. senator mythical.
