CHAPTER FOUR
Interview with Fatah Commando Abu Omar*

How do you describe your organization?

We are a national liberation movement.

What specifically do you mean by "liberation"?

By liberation we mean putting an end to the occupying military power in our country, Palestine, reasserting the rights of our people to return to their country and determine their destiny.

What is your strategy for the liberation?

Our strategy for liberation is to fight the enemy--not in a classical war where he can be superior because of his technological superiority, but to fight a long-range war, which can be called either a people's war or a popular armed revolution.

Why should it be armed struggle?

Because history has shown--and the experience of other revolutionary movements and oppressed peoples have shown--that when you are subjected to superior force and violence, the only way to meet force is with force.

The movement definitely has its enemies. In what order do you view the forces hostile to your movement?

Of course the occupying Zionists are the spearhead, the main enemy. But the Israelis are not an isolated phenomenon; they are part of the world Zionist movement; the Zionist movement is allied with world imperialism; and then, of course, world imperialism has its connections and its puppets in other parts of the Arab world.
