Official Palestinian Authority TV - July 8, 2012

 
PA TV live broadcast of ceremony commemorating anniversary of the death of Ghassan Kanafani – Tulkarem. 

Mohammad Shtayyeh, member of the Fatah Central Committee: 
"We, of the Fatah movement, do not cry over Martyrs. It is natural that a fighter should die as a Martyr, [as did] Abu Jihad, Abu Iyad, the Martyr, the symbol Yasser Arafat, and thousands more. But what makes Ghassan Kanafani special is that he died as a Martyr early on, like the Martyrdom-seekers Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar, and Abu Ali Iyad…
Today we recall Hani Al-Hassan, who said: 'Military action seeds, and political action reaps.'"

Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks, including the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) was A founder of Fatah and head of the terror organization Black September. Attacks he planned included the murder of two American diplomats (March 1, 1973), as well as the murders of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972).
Ghassan Kanafi was a writer and a leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
Kamal Adwan was responsible for Fatah’s terrorist operations and a senior member of Black September. He and Kamal Nasser were killed by Israeli forces in April 1973.
Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar was Arafat's deputy, and commander of operations for the terrorist organization Black September
