In March 1971 the Dutch newspaper Trouw published
an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)
executive committee member Zahir Muhsein.
Here’s what he said. “The Palestinian people do not exist.
The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for
continuing our struggle against the state of Israel and
for our Arab unity. In reality, today there is no difference
between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese.
Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today
about the existence of a Palestinian people.
“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with
defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa,
while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa,
Jaffa, Beersheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment
we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will wait not
even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”
Arafat himself made a very definitive and unequivocal
statement along these lines as late as 1993. It demonstrates
conclusively that the Palestinian nationhood argument is
the real strategic deception – one geared up to set up the
destruction of Israel.
