2:22 pm
two hours we can get it on join us in the rest central by report about the same time but more importantly is where those two cultures north and south america meet have to teach you to very important place for al-jazeera to be. one 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. following the expulsion from jordan p.l.o. leader yasser arafat decided to pursue the path of diplomacy. there were hopeful
2:23 pm
signs of the early seventy's but the optimism was all to come crashing down. to the people for. the last say. but only. good through last night not only the idea. of those. little following a day in november nineteenth seventy four yes an artifact received
2:24 pm
a standing ovation at the general assembly you know. he had spoken over a peaceful solution for christ in the months. for the guerrilla leader standing among statesmen it was a crown which. journey to the un had begun several years earlier. following their expulsion from jordan some palestinian factions concluded their fiery rhetoric and revolutionary zeal had harmed rather than help their cause are you saying the same time that there will be an increase in terrorism. no i am saying there will be an increase in people who hear this but i call in the evolution of a struggle inside at this time and i refuse the word terrorism because we are not terrorists a lot of people in palestine if you are following them they are doing demonstrations every day in nablus in ramallah they are accusing there is not only conquered but
2:25 pm
why do you call this that of as if at the same time you hijack international ecker of ten hold hostages innocent women and children how do you expect the rest of the world to sympathize and respect the palestinian cause first of all be if he has declared lately that with this type of actions this is number one and number two during all of these actions which we have done previously we did not do harm to anybody however the f.l.p. operative when he heard that did not agree with how much had descended and was expelled from the group but this did not prevent him from organizing further operations in one nine hundred seventy five he sent a group headed by the venezuelan revolutionary carlos to vienna to storm a meeting of opec and take several with ministers hostage dead was angry that carlos had not followed the meticulous plans he had drawn. what the let me.
2:26 pm
say that. what dia may not have realized about carlos is narcissism which manifested itself in the opec operation carlos acted against what he is orders and when they met afterwards what the slap him. i think when carlos negotiated and released the oil ministers it gave the impression that he could be bride which was a main reason for the failure of the operation from that moment what d. a broke his connection with carlos. a year later a group of her dad's followers hijacked an air france airliner to intending uganda the israelis mounted a spectacular rescue operation killing all the hijackers and freeing the hostages despite these acts of violence the political track was moving. following the one nine hundred seventy expulsion from jordan the democratic front for the liberation of palestine the d.f.l. be believed a more realistic political program was required. in one thousand seventy two it had
2:27 pm
floated the idea of accepting a two state solution by the summer of one nine hundred seventy four the p.l.o. had unanimously adopted the d.f.l. peace ten point plan. for the first time the palestinian spoke about establishing an independent national authority the word israel was never explicitly mentioned in the plan but after years of armed struggle the palestinians were now implicitly recognizing the state of israel and under god managed out of the work that i'm not on the killers who may but many in this living it was opposed by the process. of command and called the defeatists as genda but arafat and i were yet west mark. as a bulldozer or minesweeper to clear the way for it. when i wanted. my family it took almost a year of discussions and on the eve of the b. and c.
2:28 pm
session in june of one thousand nine hundred seventy four we came to a consensus with factor that b f p and the process. and the ten point program that was adopted just weeks prior to his speech at the un artifacts received the mandate he'd long been seeking from arab leaders the arab league summit in rabat to strip jordan over its traditional role in palestinian affairs and named the p.l.o. as the sole legitimate representative of the palestinian people. for the palestinians it was a dream come true their decision making would no longer be bound by the yoke of an object that although arab states would continue to try and exert influence on palestinian matters the jordanians felt there about some of the decision pointed the finger of blame back. but as. i wonder what would have happened if his majesty had expressed his displeasure by withdrawing from that about summit while leaving his prime minister there jordan was being harassed
2:29 pm
jordan was made out to be the root of the problem not israel. soon after artifacts triumph at the u.n. in november nine hundred seventy four consensus among the different palestinian factions over the two state solution proposal began to falter. after its expulsion from jordan the p.l.o. had moved a tad quarters to the lebanese capital beirut. in april nine hundred seventy five civil war broke out in a. lebanese politics divided into two camps christiane led dried and a muslim dominated left led by the socialist druze politician come out to. four years lebanon's muslims had clamored for a fairer distribution of political power. the palestinians felt a natural affinity for their calls desperate not to repeat the mistakes committed in jordan the p.l.o. leader sought to keep his forces out of the lebanese. i know that arafat tried to
2:30 pm
keep the palestinians out of the wall at the beginning but that was never going to be possible impossible especially with they. especially with the common nationalisms you know the german. version of nationalism on the palestinian version of nationalism. but by nine hundred seventy six the palestinians no longer felt able to stay on the sidelines in the. palestinian fighters linked up with the leftist forces and gradually advanced into the christine heart of. syria found the idea of a p.l.o. backed regime in lebanon a recipe for disaster it feared such areas would provoke israel into military action that would drag syria into war. for their part israel and the united states also took a dim view of the rise of the lebanese left and its palestinian arabs in one of the more bizarre alignments of interest in the oven on syria decided to throw its weight behind the christians with
2:31 pm
a green light from washington and tacit israeli consent syria sent its army into lebanon in june of one nine hundred seventy six to stem the palestinian leftist advance. got a polygamy story out of the. and that's what it of syria was asked to intervene to curb the expansion of the palestinian and lebanese leftists. the lebanese left had become troublesome to arab regimes. the leader of the left come out jumblatt was viewed as a threat to lebanese and arab stability. another factor was the mutual dislike between arafat and syrian president assad. syria's military intervention was stepped up following an assault on a damascus hotel by the n.t. out of abu nidal palestinian group. the perpetrators were quickly apprehended and hanged in public. faced with the syrian onslaught i felt appealed to the arab world for assistance accusing syria of attempting to liquidate the palestinian resistance the syrian assault force the palestinians onto the defensive. they were no longer
2:32 pm
able to mount an effective resupply of their besieged refugee camps and the christians. the camps principle among which was tell a saturday were overrun and the residents expelled or massacred. two arab summits were quickly convened they established what became known as the out of deterrent forces made up principally of the same syrian forces that had entered lebanon with only token representation from several other arab states syria had prevailed the fellow at the it had. been president assad's view was that syria and its ability to achieve strategic parity with israel had to be supported by two strong wings a lebanese wing and a palestinian wing that is if syria was to have influence on the political scene it had to become the sole legitimate representative of syria lebanon and the
2:33 pm
palestinians. while lebanon was in the throes of conflict on another front there were moves towards peace. in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven egyptian president anwar sadat a longstanding ally of artifacts made a groundbreaking visit to israel to sue for peace in exchange for land arafat was stunned but out of fact had been making his own peace moves his representative in london side hamami had been promoting the palestinian vision of a two state solution at the artifacts behest. of us then the. other factor in the palestinian leadership were convinced that the most important thing was achieving palestinian aspirations not the method employed to achieve them and if the method to achieve them was a civilized and peaceful one then that would be better than a violent one. out of five and the p.l.o. leadership firmly believe this.
