1. PPSSSTTT!!! The Greatest Secret in the Middle East Revealed!
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian
state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state
of Israel 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, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the
existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.

"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, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem.
However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait
even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

(PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977,
interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.)
