A member of the PLO-EC throughout his leadership of Sa‘iqa, he served as head of the military department. Was repeatedly promoted by Syria to become chairman of the PLO-EC whenever dissatisfied with ‘Arafat (esp during early76 clashes). Famously declared that the assertion of Palestinian identity was just a tactical manoeuvre in the struggle (Mar77 interview). **His family’s house in Tulkarm was picketed after gave support to Syria in 1976 Lebanon clashes with Palestinians. **Was assassinated in Cannes on 15Jul79.
And what is Sa iqa? globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/al-saiqa.htm
Syrian members of the Ba’athist party were among the original founders of al-Sa’iqa when it was established in 1966. Since its founding, al-Sa’iqa has backed the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), but** its Syrian origin has occasionally hindered its support of a Palestinian state .Al-Sa’iqa is sponsored by the state of Syria.
Syrian General Salah Jadid was the first to lead the al-Sa’iqa organization, but he was quickly removed when rival Hafez al-Asad came to power in Syria. Mahmud al-Ma’ayta and Yusuf Zu’ayyin were also among al-Sa’iqa’s primary leaders until Hafez al-Asad supporters replaced them in November 1970. In June 1971, Zuhayr Muhsin was appointed Secretary General of the organization, and his brother Majid Muhsin later became the head of operations in Lebanon. In July 1979, Zuhayr Muhsin was assasinated in Cannes and was soon replaced by 'Isam al-Qadi. In the same year, Muhammed Khalifah became Deputy Secretary General, who also served on the Executive Committee of the PLO.
In February 1979, al-Sa’iqa was suspected for a bombing of a Sheraton Hotel in Cairo, Egypt. In June of the same year, a suspected member of al-Sa’iqa was arrested in Cairo while carrying a suitcase full of explosives. In May 1984, a former member of al-Sa’iqa was found dead in Cyprus; three Syrians were questioned and stated that the man had joined Fatah, a rival faction within the PLO.
So a Syrian agent saw the Palestinian struggle as an opportunity to great a Greater Syria. what does that prove exactly?
