in the half an hour i will see you very soon. bradway when this idea popped into your pocket when they're on line it's undoubtedly chief goal. of again inequality in society today or if you join the sunset criminal justice system is dysfunctional right now this is a dialogue what does it feel like bringing you to go back for the first time everyone has a voice and allow refugees to be the speakers for change join the clovelly conversation on out to zero. 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.
12:22 pm
has been at the heart of the struggle to regain palestine ever since. the little. expelled from jordan and then never been on the p.l.o. seem to be running out of options. forced into a corner its leader yasser arafat's soon found himself in gauged in a fratricidal fight for the control of the p.l.o. and for his life. with the withdrawal of the bulk of its forces from beirut the p.l.o. was in limbo once again few out of countries wanted to welcome thousands of palestinian fighters for the first time the p.l.o.
12:23 pm
is existence in exile would be without the military force that had characterized it stays in jordan and lebanon. the price of defeat in beirut soon appeared before artifact the weakened p.l.o. leader found himself under attack from palestinian leaders within the p.l.o. and even from within his own father factions. the critics said artifact style of leadership was too autocratic and they accused him of abandoning the revolution by evacuating beirut and seeking a negotiated settlement. yes i offered to lead to any argument that you have to set up yes that arafat wants to abandon the struggle we want to continue but he came to damascus and attempted a coup in fattal to kill the revolution which we want to preserve arafat has sold out because he is no longer interested in the revolution. syria which had always wished to make the p.l.o. subservient to its will sought to exploit fats vulnerability.
12:24 pm
every defeat has a price and the part of the price was the split at the time syria tried to settle a score with the p.l.o. leadership that's what transpired was a syrian attempt to dominate palestinian decision later that should direct syrian intervention or through serious palestinian tool that was met with there is a lot defense of independence of palestinian decision making. the syrian intervention found the third child breeding ground of differences and power struggles with them further. and you have a medal for the s.s.e. if you shut up that it was. out of our birds a direct responsibility for that split in the p.l.o. there were two choices that arafat's made the choice that there exist in swirls futile. palestinian opponents start a fight for breakaway groups splitting from out of its main front the faction one group called itself fatah intifada syria and libya were only too willing to support
12:25 pm
the rebels. the tensions within the p.l.o. were rising the battle lines of a fratricidal struggle were beginning to appear. and. let it affect them at objectively speaking in the beginning the demands made to arafat's were just demands and possible to realize i presented them to him he said he could accept them but he distrusted the intentions of his opponents and i conveyed his acceptance to fatah intifada it was very obvious that they had no intention to arrive at an understanding i was convinced of there was a conspiracy and the other split serve the interest of certain our countries it was a joint syria libyan decision. hona but that that that was what. we called for a dialogue to resolve the differences between both wings of fact that was rejected
12:26 pm
by arafat's components in fact to happen to. what they thought they could take complete control of fact. and the other hand artifacts fact that was initially receptive to our proposal. arafat's arch rival abu nidal quickly allied himself with the anti out of fat faction. in april of one nine hundred eighty three at a meeting in portugal the abu nidal organization assassinated by some subtle we three leading p.l.o. moderate and artifact representatives who had been negotiating with israeli. alf's . israeli leadership on peres also in attendance was left alone are. enough to. a. week or so i thought was assassin later on i saw him in tunis and i asked him why he hadn't also shot that is he said he's ordered to kill some power we only saw one day i hope to write an article about abu nidal and some thought i
12:27 pm
would call it who is a traitor the murderer or the victim the victim was innocent and honorable a man who knew where his people's interests lay but the murderer was a tool and a traitor abu nidal discredited the palestinian cause in the eyes of the world when in one thousand nine hundred five two of his european cells attacked rome and vienna airports killing eighteen and wounding a hundred and forty people. a cia document at the time claimed that abu nidal had not attacked a single israeli target back here. in june one thousand nine hundred three when it was syria declared on a shuttle persona non-grata and expelled him from damascus the break was cemented. so what's going on now. as you see you have to go there on the air and just have a go said it's going to. do you mean exactly as a point. that. there were you know i am very. i have
12:28 pm
a meeting here after having the thing i really want meeting with no. and with everything and the president here you have to leave it there. but. i respect that but you have to wait and see. i think the command. going on now anything is going in an extent way ok ok thank you. fema back. food. bias to be out of cut it out either the minute i say do it out to be a bus. but the minute a minute than. what the new book the studio.
12:29 pm
with very much on the. face so what if. but no one can harm fatah fatah is very strong and no one can harm its leadership or unity we cannot be dictated to it would be very easy to get on a plane and go and surrender to syrian president. i assure you if i did that both problems on the factions would vanish but we are against this for the sake of our people and the dignity of this movement and this model kind of he said. half as our last side had grand strategic calculations he viewed the palestinian issue as his to god and preserve there is no such thing as the independence of palestinian decision making in the syrian lexicon. syria's foreign minister once told me so have you had a palestine something syria. in july nine hundred eighty three fighting broke out in the bekaa valley in lebanon between pro and anti artifact forces on
12:30 pm
a fact now faced an armed revolt against his authority by process elements within the p.l.o. . i thought loyalists who had found their way back to lebanon were besieged by the syrian army and its palestinian allies in the city of tripoli in north lebanon. in a daring errancy journey from his new headquarters into the out of that managed to slip into tripoli in disguise and join. pro series palestinians responded immediately. i mean most tell us all the daddy if you yeah well that the body and the heavy it in for this teeny. the heavy it in. one of the. what do you find the now. as.
12:31 pm
well. why did he well. soon enough see why shaaban finest cluny human. the defense of tripoli was led by artifacts deputies. that are known as abu jihad it's so they met that over the city and decision this is he rejected the description of the ongoing battle as a purely palestinian affair you're seeing this out of what's think is that it's the bank from the syrian army you see your car look you can follow it it's. just the ferry was to defeat coming from the city i'm not a museum to them and they had to. sit in command but as you see. on a fox opponents kept up that tax claim they had the support among palestinians in the occupied territory of us and to me listen to me about that and what we can see that yasser arafat used to be
12:32 pm
a symbol for our people but the people are beginning to gradually see the truth and realize what is happening to this person who was interested as a fighter for the independence of palestinian decision making is now abusing his position to make. such claims were not borne out by facts on the ground palestinians in the west bank in gaza rallied around on a fact who expressed the philosophical view of the ongoing conflict you have to understand what the meaning of the war is a loud voice for fun to see. the loud voice of politics was taking a heavy toll on the residents of tripoli. faced with mounting pressure to end the conflict saudi arabia's foreign minister traveled to damascus and announced an agreement had been reached and hostilities and evacuating out of us forces from tripoli we have. reached an agreement. here
12:33 pm
based on the two principles that. refill these principles with a. preventing. any destruction of the city of of tripoli and stop the fighting between the factions to fully and call for the withdrawal of of armed forces at a syrian un forces out of tripoli well these principles have been enunciated in this. in this document. the united nations made arrangements for a lot of thought and for thousands of his fighters to depart the coast and lebanese city on board five greek ships. following his second expulsion from lebanon on a fact once more defined the enforced xx.
